Sheamus Biography

Sheamus

Sheamus is one of the major wrestlers of the world, with a hard temper and with a huge will. Sheamus never refuses provocations, and he always gets in the ring with the thought of winning the respective fight.

Sheamus was born in Dublin, and he managed to captivate the public with an offensive and aggressive style borrowed from his Celtic ancestors. He can be considered as a modern Celtic Warrior, a figure that was needed in the WWE world for a long time. He debuted in 2009 in ECW, but his impressive style brought him in the WWE after a short period.

Even since 2009, Sheamus engaged into a rivalry with John Cena. The direct fight was memorable, involving chairs, tables and other objects around the ring. The fight was harsh, but it finally offered a premiere: the first Irish character to win the WWE Championship, in front of the fiercest fighter of this competition.

Sheamus aimed for higher recognition in WWE, but even if he defeated big names of this competition, such as Cena, Triple H and Randy Orton, he was drafted for Smack Down in 2011. In 2012, he won the Royal Rumble.

Brock Lesnar Biography

Brock-Lesnar-Bio1

Brock Lesnar can be listed among the former WWE Champions but we must also add that this wrestler made the move to a different world of competition – Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and mixed martial arts (MMA). Lesnar caught fan’s attention with his win in a 2007 UFC debut. However, this was not the first time the 32-year-old fighter has been in the spotlight.

Lesnar was a NCAA Division I wrestling champion and won the WWE title multiple times. After a very successful career in WWE competition, Lesnar started training for MMA in 2006. He quickly moved to the top of this game with a UFC Heavyweight Championship (defeating Randy Coutoure). He considers it an honor to be able to compete in UFC battles. He has stated that this organization includes “the best fighters in the world.”

College Success and Beyond

Lesnar worked hard as a youth, because he grew up on a dairy farm. He attended college and wrestled successfully at the collegiate level but did not complete his degree. Once his college wrestling career was over he moved to professional bouts with the WWE. Lesnar also tried his hand at the National Football League but returned to wrestling. (He is 6’3″ tall and weighs more than 260 pounds.)

His collegiate accomplishments include four All-American honors, two Big Ten championships and the NCAA heavyweight title. Lesnar took his third WWE title in 2003 with a win over Kurt Angle (SmackDown!). Lesnar won the hour-long Iron Man Match with a 5-4 score. His most recent activity with the UFC will include a May 30 match against Heath Herring (pay per view).

The Change

Lesnar, who was born in 1977, is ranked second in the world by MMA Weekly.com, according to biography information from UFC and others. At the time he won a WWE title he was the youngest person ever to hold that honor. He lists 2002 King of the Ring and 2003 Royal Rumble champion among his accomplishments.

Brock-Lesnar-Bio

Brock Lesnar didn’t move directly from WWE to UFC competition. He went to the NFL in 2004 after a successful WWE career. He was active with the Minnesota Vikings but was cut before the regular season began. In 2005 he crossed the ropes again as a New Japan Pro wrestler. He won the heavyweight championship. His MMA experience began in June of 2007 and a few months after that he signed on with UFC.

Lesnar has become one of the most feared and most successful fighters in both wrestling and mixed martial arts. He has traveled a long way from his home in Webster, South Dakota, where he was undefeated during his senior year in high school. His college wrestling experience came from Bismarck State College in North Dakota and from the University of Minnesota. He had his television-wrestling debut in 2002 as part of the Raw promotion. His “feuds” included Angle and Goldberg. He was also involved in a bit of controversy between the WWE and New Japan wrestling. WWE challenged his right to work with the Japanese organization. He is currently associated with an MMA clothing line.

The Rock Biography

The-Rock2
The Rock

Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, may be one of the most recognizable and popular professional wrestlers in existence. While he certainly held his own in the ring, against numerous talented opponents, Johnson has made a real name for himself as an actor. Born in 1972, The Rock played college football as a member of the University of Miami team that won a national championship. He tried his hand in the Canadian Football League but stayed only a few months.

He followed his grandfather and father into the world of professional wrestling, becoming quite famous and popular under the World Wrestling Entertainment banner. Johnson became “The Rock” early in his career when he was known as part of the Nation of Domination. He wrestled occasionally in 2000 and 2001 but devoted an increasing amount of time to acting in movies and television shows.

But those who know Johnson only from his acting career shouldn’t be misled. He was a world champion nine times (seven WWF/WWE and two World Championship Wrestling). He held the Intercontinental title twice and won the WWF Tag Team Championship on five separate occasions.

Johnson has been in numerous major movies, including The Scorpion King, Get Smart and Race to Witch Mountain, a career that is a long way from his youth in California. Members of Johnson’s family have been involved in professional wrestling for decades. Even his grandmother was a wrestling commissioner in the early 1980s, the Polynesian Pacific Pro Wrestling organization. Johnson is of Samoan and black heritage. His father’s family traces its roots to Nova Scotia.

Young Athlete

Johnson participated in track, football and other sports in high school, eventually catching the attention of several Division I colleges. He attended the University of Miami, where he played football. Johnson and his wife, Dany Garcia, have donated large amounts of money to their alma mater. Dany is a member of the university Board of Trustees.

At 6’3” tall and 255 pounds, Johnson was a formidable opponent in the ring. He was trained by family members who had extensive experience in professional wrestling. His successes include the USWA tag-team title in 1996. He first appeared in WWF competition as Rocky Maivia, using parts of names from his grandfather and father. He often wrestled as an audience favorite and was generally known as a clean wrestler and a clean-cut sort of man. The Rock won the Intercontinental title by defeating Triple H in 1997.

Feuds with Steve Austin and others highlighted The Rock’s career in the late 1990s and into the new century. He was the first African-American to gain the heavyweight title. Johnson wrestled at the top of the professional game for several years, primarily due to his popularity among fans of all ages. He began to develop a sense of comedy and presented this personality during television interviews.

The years 2000 and 2001 were very busy times for Johnson. His wrestling career was going at full speed, during a time when he was often referred in connection with a Kurt Angle feud. He left wrestling and the WWE for a short time to pursue his career in Hollywood, but returned for a short time. The Rock’s wrestling career has been part-time/retirement since 2004.

Goldberg Biography

Goldberg_Biography

You may know him as Goldberg. Some people call him Bill Goldberg. But this professional wrestler and star football player was born William Scott Goldberg in 1966 (Tulsa, Oklahoma). In the 4+ decades since that time Goldberg grew into a 6’4″ 285 pound superstar.

He was an All-SEC and All-American player at the University of Georgia. A brief career in the NFL was cut short by a muscle tear and he retired from the game. But he found a new job that wasn’t first on his list of priorities. Friendships with other World Championship Wrestling stars led to his debut match against Hugh Morrus. Goldberg quickly rose to star status with his signature spear and jackhammer moves.

Bill-Goldberg

He defeated Hulk Hogan in 1998 but then found himself trying to regain his wrestling title. Frustration led to a serious cut on his arm (after punching through a car windshield). The wound was closed with 190 stitches. After some time on the sidelines he made his way back into the ring and continued his success into the 21st century. He has since made appearances in Hollywood films and many “big name” television shows. Goldberg may be one of the most recognizable names in the wrestling world.

Triple-H Biography

Triple-H
Triple-H

Most professional wrestlers have a ring name today. Sometimes it is an abbreviation of the full name. Some performers choose a fictitious name that suits their ring personality. Triple H has a slightly different variation on the name idea. This pro wrestler and screen actor was born Paul Michael Levesque in 1969. Earlier in his career he wrestled under the name Hunter Hearst Helmsley. He now uses the three “H’s” from his former name to wrestle as Triple H in World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) action.

Triple H is a featured wrestler in the WWE Raw series now but he started with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) more than 17 years ago. He use a number of different ring names and was part of D-Generation X. Triple H ultimately became a main-event performer and held several championship titles.

So Many Titles

Triple H has 13 world champion titles to his name – eight WWE and five World Heavyweight championships. His resume’ includes King of the Ring, Royal Rumble and Grand Slam championships as well. This native of New Hampshire started on the path toward wrestling with a keen interest in bodybuilding. In fact, he won the Teen division of Mr. New Hampshire.

Levesque honed his skills under the tutelage of the legendary Killer Kowalski and started wrestling professionally in 1992. He was an early member of the Independent Wrestling Federation and took the heavyweight title in that organization under the ring name Terra Ryzing.

Triple H worked under the WCW banner for several years in the mid 1990s, trading on his French-sounding last name and on tag-team action with Lord Steven Regal. He was marketed in the wrestling world as a “blueblood” from Connecticut, which is the origin of the Hunter Hearst Helmsley name. This lasted only a short time, however. During that time he was closely associated with Shawn Michaels, Scott Hall and others in The Kliq.

MSG and Beyond

Triple H is still remembered for stepping out of character at Madison Square Garden, a moment that is known among wrestling fans as the MSG incident. He held the Intercontinental title for a short time then moved on to become part of D-Generation X, a group of wrestlers known for pushing the limits with their actions during and after matches.

In the 21st century Triple H activity included Hell in a Cell, a title in WrestleMania 2000 (pinning The Rock) and Three Stages of Hell versus Steve Austin. As part of the Raw lineup he held the Undisputed Championship for a short time but lost it to Hulk Hogan. In recent years, Triple H has been part of Evolution with Ric Flair, Randy Orton and Batista. He fought Shawn Michaels in a Last Man Standing match and was part of the D-Generation X revival.

John Cena made his debut in WWE against Kurt Angle in a wrestling match on 27th June, 2002. Celebrated famously as “Prototype”, Cena is well known for bringing the hip hop style into wrestling. His fans love him notoriously for the way he uses rap as an instrument to throw verbal abuses on his rivals and others who he hates.

John Cena

The year 2004 was one of the most successful for John Cena. It was in this year that the wrestler won the United States Championship from the Big Show. Later in 2005, Cena got into some clashes with John Bradshaw Layfield, his manager Eric Bischoff and some of his other colleagues like Chris Jericho and Edge.

Apart from ruling the wrestling ring, John has even worked in movies. In 2006, he acted as the main character of the WWE franchise movie “The Marine”.

Cena’s histrionics has also made its way into the world of Music. He has a rap album debut “You Can’t See Me” to his credit, which in fact was ranked at 15 on the US Billboard 200 chart.

In 2007, Cena fought a wrestling match against Kevin Federline who is actually Britney Spears’ ex boyfriend.

He later on went on to become the first wrestler to beat Umaga in 2007. He also won a tag team match teaming with Shaun Michaels against Randy Orton and Edge. In October 2007, John lost his WWE Championship title due to injury caused by a tear in his pectoral muscle when he tried a hip toss in a match against Mr. Kennedy. Nonetheless Cena made his comeback in 2008 and won a Royal Rumble match and the title shot of Wrestle Mania. He followed this with victory against JBL, at Judgment Day.

John Cena has been an all-rounder with his participation in diverse areas apart from wrestling like music, movies and fashion. Although injuries had played havoc in his career, he has even so shown resilience in coming back. That’s why we can surely expect more fire works from the superstar in the near future, not only in wrestling but also other areas in the world of entertainment.

Jeff Jarrett Biography

JeffJarrett

Jeff Jarrett is the son of Jerry Jarrett, one of the most important promoters in the world of wrestling. He made his debut in this sport in 1986. At the same time, he owns a company that takes away the majority of his time, but as he is a WWE member, he still finds time to fight in this competition.

Jeff attracted many fans with his image of an arrogant country singer. On the other hand, he was also a valuable fighter, a reputation confirmed by the title won in 94, as an Intercontinental Champion. This recognition promoted his name in the good name of wrestling, demoting the affirmations of people claiming that his father was behind the popularity gained by Jeff.

On the other hand, this remains the only important title in his career. Currently, he focuses on finding other talents, and he fights only once in a while. Even if he promised to become a World Champion one day, it seems like he renounced his ambitions. He is a successful manager, and he even thinks about releasing a country music album. However, he is still a prominent figure in the world of wrestling, and this image would probably persist for a long time.
