Wrestling careerEdit

Russo Pro WrestlingEdit


He is the most mischievous, determined to take his magic "to the Max." When he's not dodging homework and vegetables, Max plays practical jokes on his siblings.

It is very hard to tell at times if Max is eccentric, outside the box or just stupid. He takes almost everything said to him literally, often confuses the meaning of words (such as aunt and ant), doesn't seem to understand when he's being insulted even when told he is being insulted, and has been known to do some very idiotic things such as shrinking his own brain just so he can store more jelly beans in his skull. However he has been shown to be an average level student despite his intellectual shortcomings.

Personal LifeEdit

Max previously dated a few women, most notably Talia Robinson. However, it is unknown if they are still together or not. [3]

Max is a big fan of Lucha Libre. His favorite wrestlers are Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio.

Controversy Edit

Before 2012, Max used the Crippler Crossface as a finisher, due to his respect for the late Eddie Guerrero extending to his friends. Most smarks thought this was disrespectful and Max received loud X-Pac Heat. Regardless, Max continued to use the move and Christian Noir's endorsement only served to anger the fans even more. After Justin accidentally told Max the events of June 24, 2007, Max lost his respect for Chris Benoit and became fierce enemies with Noir. This resulted in the fans being even more upset at Max, as he didn't even know what happened to his favorite wrestlers. Therefore despite having the most entertaining moveset among his siblings, Max is universally hated by smarks.

Championships & AccomplishmentsEdit


  • RPW Shield, Swerve, Shoot Three-Person On A Forklift Championship (4 times, current)


  • Max has wrestled as his alter-egos Maxine and Maximan to no better response from the fans. He soon dropped these gimmicks.
