Michael Rollins was born on December 28, 1989 in Chicago, Illinois to Charles Rollins, a Chiropractor, and Maria, a Therapist. At the age of 16, Rollins, through a friend, visited "The Chamber", a Training facility for Pro-Wrestling and Mixed Martial Arts and owned by Professional Wrestler Damian Seth. It was at that moment that he decided to become a Professional Wrestler. Rollins, while still training at The Chamber, took classes at The University of Chicago. 5 years later in 2010, at the age of 21, Rollins was one of five people to become the first graduates of The Chamber. Rollins doesn't mention his past very often beyond that point, saying that it is a subject he prefers not talking about.
He Graduated from The University Of Chicago in 2009 in the top 1% of his class, majoring in mathematics and science. Rollins is an avid Chicago Bulls fan, having been seen wearing a Bulls' hoodie backstage on more than one occasion. He owns a loft in Miami, Florida and a new home in Los Angeles, but currently resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with his Fiance. He is also a fan of Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts as well, having been seen attending numerous evens. He, along with Taylor, younger brother Alex (Kai) and Robinson, were the youngest wrestlers on the WKF roster, being 21 years old (Rollins and Taylor) and 20 (Alex and Robinson).
Rollins has a number of tattoos that he has gotten during this time in the chamber training facility: Twin dragons intertwining along his arm and shoulder, the word "Lost" above his naval, and "Made in The Chamber" above his heart, in the design of a heart wrapped in black barbed wire. He also has a tattoo of his fiance's name wrapped around the base of his left ring finger.
In July 2011, Rollins was seen at a UFC even with another Professional Wrestler, Alison Cook, better known as Alisyn, causing rumors that the two are romantically linked, although it is well known that Rollins has helped train Cook in preparation for her debut in Premium Womens Wrestling. The relationship was confirmed after Cook moved in with Rollins in early August, but the two ended the relationship in December 2011. They still remain very good friends. At the end of September 2012, Rollins began dating Morgan Simmons. The two split in mid January 2013, but remain very close friends. He also had a short lived romance with Cindy Parker, former wife of fellow wrestler Brandon Banks. He began dating Brytain Montgomery in early March 2013, and asked her to move in at the end of April. The two announced their engagement in Mid May.
On August 22, Rollins was informed that he was up for consideration for The MacArthur Fellowship Program, which is an award given by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation each year to typically 20 to 40 United States Citizens or residents, of any age and working in any field, who "show exceptional merit and promise for continued and enhanced creative work".
Injuries and Near-DeathAfter his match with Danielle Lopez, Syn collapsed backstage and went into shock. He was rushed to a nearby hospital in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, and had flat-lined several times on the way there. At around 6 O'Clock, Syn had, in the words of one of the Doctors, "Died on the table", but they were able to detect a very weak pulse and just barely managed to save him. After performing emergency surgery, it was determined that the initial kick to the head that Syn took dislodged a shard from his eye, causing his eye to rupture. Several bumps throughout the match caused said shard to lodge itself into his brain. The Doctors who operated said that had the shard been just a nanometre deeper, Syn would have died instantly.
The injury took Syn's left eye, but thanks to the surgery he was given a new, fully functioning eye. Syn's eyes are now Bright Green (Right) and Light Purple (Left)
After The Hell In A Cell Match, Syn was diagnosed with a cracked vertebra in his neck, as well as several internal injuries. He was supposed to be sidelined for 6 to 12 weeks, but was cleared several weeks early due to aggressive rehabilitation and physical therapy.
