Born to his mother Pearl and father Patrick in the suburb of Brooklyn Park in 1984, he grew up in a decade of change. Cousin to Dark Prophet he grew up in a family that enjoyed Wrestling intensely. Prophet and Nick often went to WCW and WWF shows at the Target Center as well as Nick being in Boxing and Wrestling throughout school. His uncle Donald opened up a small Indy Federation in the family's "home base" of Fergus Falls, Minnesota; where he employed himself as soon as he graduated high school. Being younger than his more famous cousin, he always felt as though he was consistently in his shadow. When Prophet offered him a job alongside him in XHF in late 2004 he did not deny.
Early Pro Attempt
Though struggling to win matches and never holding a title, he followed Prophet to IPW and TWE where he met little success yet again. In all early professional attempts it was a lack of good booking that robbed him from having many wins. His gimmick given to him, based upon his relation to Dark Prophet and a possible lead into a feud with him was to call him "The Prophet" and do "prophecies" before a match much like Prophet did before. This gimmick was very unsuccessful for both men, and may have also added to his lack of success. All times he was a victim of the booking committees and left to train in what is now Dark Prophet's training/indy fed; where he was before. He disappeared for over a year, eventually being re-trained by Dark Prophet for skills on the microphone that he had otherwise lacked under the pressure of his early professional days.
PWX and an interesting goal
Signed to WVWF he was placed in the PWX division. His goal, however odd it seems, is not the typical World Title one. His goal is very oriented to how he has always approached his indy work, Hardcore and High Flying. The Cruiserweight is set to debut soon and with this he will be back in the Pros, to take another swing at success.
On January 31 of 2007 a news report was released telling of the self-inflected death of Nick Stahl. His motives are of his continued failure and mediocrity both in and out of the ring. In the end, addiction to Methamphetamine and Heroin was his downfall and he shall be missed.
