Early Life Edit
On March 31, 1994, Garza was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. He is the first born in his family. Garza was inspired to become a professional wrestler at the age of five when he witnessed a match from The Hardy Boyz and Lita and his dream grew to become an extreme wrestler by the time he became exploited to Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) in 2005 by its relaunch and documentary.
Professional Wrestling Career Edit
Original Character Wrestling Federation (2015–present) Edit
Garza signed with OCWF in late 2015 upon their reboot and has yet to appear on his debut. After a three-year developmental from the promotion, it was reported that Garza would participate in a tournament to determine an inaugural world champion.
Peach Creek Ultimate Wrestling Edit
Peach Creek Developmental Wrestling (2017–present) Edit
Ultimate Wrestling Entertainment Edit
Los Siempre Amigos (2018–present) Edit
Garza made his main roster debut on the Royal Charter Tour's second night, teaming with Jesse Alvarez as Los Siempre Amigos (or The Forever Friends). They fought the Bloodhounds to a losing effort. Then, they wrestled King's Crisis (Christopher House and Chris Raynor) to an upset victory after Conker and Max Goof interfered.
Dragon Fang Wrestling (2018–present) Edit
Josh is known to be a bit strange in the head; not exactly insane in the membrane or a psychopath, but just a bit strange and mysterious. Overall, he's a decent and swell guy once they get to know him; always a carefree and lighthearted man, but at times, can be serious when he situation calls for it. He's always had a love for art and loved to bring his enigmatic and unique imaginations to life on a canvas, especially on his hair and face when Jeff Hardy came around. Despite having little to no wrestling experience, Josh is headstrong and a brave man, always willing to take a risk as much to earning a barbwire steel chair to the skull or even dive off a high ladder onto his opponent through at table; you can say he's kind of a backyard wrestler. No matter what the challenge is, Garza accepts it, even at the risk of his career. When it comes to management like as a boss in ACW, he's a steady and neutral man to make sure things are in order, which is ironic since he likes to create some chaos in the ring when he wrestles.
Personal Life Edit
Joshua is a fan of rock and heavy metal, being a fan of such bands like Slipknot, Linkin Park, Metallica, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Tool, etc.
Garza is in a relationship with Ashley Williams, whom is under contract with Apex Caliber Wrestling, but they let their romantic relationship to stray away from the business relationship of employer and employee in order to avoid controversy.
When he was thirteen, he and Jesse Alvarez, who was twelve at the time, used a wrestling ring in the personal training room of Alvarez's father to experience it themselves. One day, however, Josh nearly attempted a springboard maneuver with a steel chair in hand, but slipped up and nearly broke his neck on the way down along with his nose getting broken by the chair falling on his face. He was very injured, but he was alive, thankfully. When his parents and Jesse's dad found out, they grounded them both for a good while; Garza stated to have no regrets for what he did, but also thought his parents were right. His reason for finally being part of the squared circle was hearing the news that Sarah Watkins had decided to join the wrestling business as she signed with Original Character Wrestling Federation (OCWF), apparently citing her as his inspiration for resuming his wrestling dream.
In Wrestling Edit
Garza's style depends on being a high-flying wrestler with a huge specialty of extreme and hardcore wrestling style, always willing to take any quantity of paramount jeopardy, even at the risk of his life.
