Reck Maverick debuted during MPW's original run in mid-2003, serving to fight off an invasion from a rival federation. He was awarded the MPW United States Championship for his service - and although behind the scenes Maverick was not happy about simply being handed a Championship belt he held the championship for several months, even outlasting several World Champions in the length of the title reign.
Finally Maverick was defeated by long-running rival: Tenacious D in a match up of Reck Maverick's own design, The Maverick Death Match. Not one to be held back, Reck Maverick set his sights on becoming the World Heavyweight Champion - a goal he accomplished a couple of months later. But due to company troubles Maverick was forced to vacate the World Title in favour of his half-brother Flap Flanagan and take a position backstage as the chief of staff.
He made his in-ring return at MPW-Mania in March 2004 as he defeated MPW Owner Jamez in the second Maverick Death Match. After Mania, Reck and his newly introduced Tag Team partner Omega Storm won the MPW Tag Team Championship, but when Omega Storm was arrested - Reck had to again forfeit and he took a long leave of absence (it was reported on Reck Maverick now-defunct website that he was "Sick and tired of all the garbage that MPW was producing and that the owners didn't know their heads from their asses." - Similarly Reck would again make these comments when he was fired from UWL in 2006.)
The summer of 2005 saw Reck Maverick, Flap Flanagan and long time friend Josh Eagles team up in a faction called Pure Soul Wrestling. PSW has successful in defeating the best that MPW had to offer, Reck also won the newly created United Kingdom Championship, which he held briefly before losing it to fellow PSW member Eagles. Rather than cause chaos in PSW, Reck and Flap opted to win the Tag Team Titles, which they done and renamed the FLA Tag Team Titles and created several new rules and regulations before MPW closed it's doors in the fall.
UWL - Return of the Reckless Storm
- UWL Record: 8 wins, 8 losses, 0 draws -
Shortly after MPW closed shop, representatives of the Universal Wrestling League contacted PSW and offered them contracts. Eagles and Flanagan quickly signed but Reck held out for a couple months until Omega Storm could work out his personal problems. The duo debuted and traded the Tag Titles back and forth with End of Days before Omega quickly found himself back in rehab. Maverick than disappeared for a few months to work out a new gimmick for the UWL fans.
Near the end of 2006 Reck Maverick returned to UWL with long time friend Jayde Nightwood, he claimed that he had studied Ninjitsu during his sabbitacal and that he was UWL's new hero. The duo was very popular with the fans but his win-loss record was worse than during his "Anti-Social Soldier" era. Slowly Reck Maverick started to lose his mind, and formulate wild conspiracy theories about UWL - most of which were planted by members of UWL who were angery at the company. Maverick started to "shoot" at every available opportunity, however this only served to distracted him and losses continued to mount, which lead to more conspiracies. Finally during a highly promoted best of seven series against Josh Eagles, Reck told the company to go to hell and walked out.
Maverick and Jayde where quickly hired by Josh Eagles for his newly created Cross-Continental Wrestling Alliance. They quickly won the Tag Team titles (they were an inter-gender Tag Team) but shortly thereafter Josh stopped answering their phone calls and Maverick learned that CCWA had quickly closed.
- Current Stats: 23 Wins, 9 Losses, 1 Draws -
