Early Life Edit
Steve grew up in a stereotypical Connecticut blue blood family. Though he has tried distancing himself from his blue blood roots. Growing up Steve wasn't always interested in e-wrestling. Steve's first dream was to become a Lawyer something his dad pushed him to be. When Steve decided that his passion was e-wrestling and that he was going to go to the Rick Martel online Wrestling school in Ontario Steve's dad was furious and till this day Steve has not spoken to his father. In an interview with e-wrestling insider in 2010 Steve said he wouldn't want to meet his father until he proved he can be a success in e-wrestling and prove to him he made the right choice. Steve suffers from anger management problems and did have to take classes before joining NWF. Steve is also said to have bi-polar disorder but there is no evidence of that being true. Steve currently resides in Connecticut even though he is billed from Texas. He also has a second home near NWF headquarters in Rockland Maine. Steve stated in the summer of 2010 that he personally does not care for the south and is a proud northerner this being said before his rich Texan gimmick. His current gimmick does raise eyebrows and his stereotypes of Texas he brings upon.
Before NWF Steve was very unaware of online wrestling. He was introduced to it when Owner and creator Tougie encouraged people to Joined Steve was one of the men. Steve had no prior e-wrestling experience and while the first stint in NWF was considered failure in Steve's career with his lack of mic and ring skills. Even with lack of experience Steve was able to win the NWF Tag team Championship with long time friend TLA. Steve's reign as one half of the tag team champions wasn't a popular one with a lot of heat on him for having a Mexican person as being in the Mexican warriors stable with TLA who was Mexican. Offending the Mexican audience TLA and Steve's reign was short with only one title reign at Breakdown 1. After Steve's reign he rapidly declined and NWF management heard it. Steve was a distracting member backstage and said many controversial things. Steve was released at the end of 2009 after he made an insensitive comment. Steve would later return in the spring for a short time only wrestling in house shows and really nothing changed about his attitude he was again released shortly after.
Sexual Ass WrestlingEdit
After Steve's second release he grew into deep depression. He would shortly be isolated from the e-wrestling community. He would make his name relevant again when he got the idea to form his own e-fed after not being satisfied with the other options he had with his career. Steve opened Sexual Ass Wrestling in the summer of 2010. He ran the company by himself running everything. SAW did have a decent sized fan base for its name recognition. SAW would started having a weekly show every Thursday called Thursday Night Rapedown. Steve would make many appearances on SAW TV but did not wrestle full time though he did contend for the SAW world championship several times losing each time. Steve believed he shouldn't win a title in his own company "that would be pathetic" he stated. By the end of the summer Steve was growing tired of SAW he was the only one operating it and the fans were becoming bored of it. In late August SAW shut down all operations and SAW was considered history. In 2011 SAW returned in part time operations until further support is gained. Steve was able to win the SAW world Heavy Weight Championship Twice with the return of SAW. As of May 26th, 2011, Steve is the longest reigning SAW General Manager in its history. On May 26th, 2011, Steve decided to make Sexual Ass Wrestling a full time e-fed instead of being a part time basis e-fed. Steve won the SAW world title at double D-Day but the efed folded and all titles were disbanded. Steve is too lazy to keep an efed open.
Returning to the RingEditBy late 2010 it looked like Steve's career was over with NWF still angry at him he had no where to go at that point. He did get an offer to Wrestle at a new e-fed called Pro Wrestling Nation(PWN)that was run by two NWF roster members. Steve jumped to the offer. Even though PWN lasted very shortly Steve was able to win the PWN World Heavy Weight Champion Becoming the first and only PWN world Heavy Weight Champion. Even though PWN was a small and unknown e-fed. NWF noticed Steve's improvement in the ring when he was at PWN. Tougie felt that staying mad at Steve who was at NWF when it first began was pointless. Tougie decided to sign Steve to a 1 year contract with NWF. With his return Steve has made a great Impact. Steve returned as a porn Star gimmick(Big Dick Daddy) that lasted only 2 weeks. Steve competed in his second Breakdown at Breakdown 3. He competed in the Straight Cash Ladder match where he fell short to former NWF e-wrestler Chase Black. After the event Steve went back to his rich Texan gimmick. Steve and Punisher began in a rival the week following Steve defeated Hurricane Hawk and Punisher in a triple Threat match. Weeks after Steve won his biggest match to date when he defeated NWF Veteran and icon Danny. Since returning Steve's in ring skills and mic skills have greatly improved than his first two stints in NWF. Steve has become a revolutionary figure attempting new ideas in his persona and mic work that no one else has done before. Steve has made it clear of his Political affiliation as he tries to implement that in his gimmick and so far it has contributed to a great vast of success. Steve Stated in a 2011 interview with e-wrestling insider that he plans on wrestling online as long as NWF is open. "Hell I will wrestle for another 50 years as long as NWF is still open that is my home and I will proudly put my body on the line until my computer explodes." On May 15,2011 at Wired Steve won his first singles title in NWF winning the NWF Hardcore Championship in a three way match with Punisher and Seth Skyfire. The Hardcore title was inactivated as of 5/28/11. Steve had his last title defense on Collision Course against Seth Skyfire. After having the Hardcore title retired Steve has teamed up with Taylor, Adam and Rob Ryan in a new stable called the coalition.
