Crossbones is a retired American professional wrestler.

Professional wrestling career


2004: Debuted in CHIKARA as a disgruntled upcomer who was refused a wildcard spot in the Young Lions Cup. Together with many other rookies in the same position he joined with Larry Sweeney (who received the spot) to form the massive Sweet ‘N’ Sour International stable. In his first year he was mostly a background figure, often teaming with fellow heavyweight Mano Metalico.

2005: Continued to regularly team with Metalico, bringing the comic relief to contrast Metalico's silence. However, the two were left without any direction when Sweeney fired them from the group and disbanded it to go alone. Metalico left shortly after. Crossbones then began to team with fellow former Sweeney follower Rorschach but achieved little success.

2006: Continued to team with Rorschach until October when he joined UltraMantis Black and the Order of the Neo-Solar Temple. He also suffered an arm injury earlier on in the year during an unsuccessful attempt at winning the Young Lions Cup from Shane Storm.

2007: Continued to appear for the Order throughout the year, usually as the trios partner of Mantis and Hydra.

2008: Saw Crossbones get a little bit more serious, forming an effective tag team with UltraMantis Black and standing by Mantis after Hydra's defection to the tecnico ranks.

2009: Crossbones remained affiliated with the Order, but fell out of Mantis' favor when Delirious joined the Order.

2010: In March 2010, when Crossbones was accompanying UltraMantis to a match against Ares, he was shoved into the ringpost from behind by Delirous, who had recently defected from the Order to Ares' Bruderschaft de Kreuzes. The resulting broken collarbone (kayfabe) would result in his inactivity for a year and a half. No non-kayfabe reason was ever provided for his extended absence.

2011: In September 2011 Crossbones returned to Chikara to assist UltraMantis Black and the Spectral Envoy (Hallowicked and Frightmare) against Sinn Bodhi and The Dark Army.
