Spin the Hedgehog is a Mobian Hedgehog professional wrestler currently signed to Ultimate Wrestling Entertainment (UWE), where he is the current UWE Omega Champion in his first reign, and Apex Caliber Wrestling (ACW) on the Ignition brand.
Spin is mainly known for exclusive tenure in UWE until 2014 when the promotion folded for the second time before returning to it around its third revival. He's also known for his 6-year tenure in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) from 1988 to 1994.

During 1993 as he was still signed to NJPW, he joined UWE and signed an multi-year contract after leaving NJPW in 1994. While in UWE, Spin held the UWE Galaxy Championship twice, the UWE X-Treme Championship four times and the UWE Duos Championship with Scorpion. He was also inducted into the UWE Hall of Fame in 2013.

Various Feuds (2013–present) Edit
In 2014, after Spin's contract was bought by Joshua Garza in an IWF Roster Auction when the promotion folded, he signed with Apex Caliber Wrestling (ACW). He made his official debut to ACW at Ignition II, facing Beowulf to a loss. Spin shook Beowulf's hand out of respect after the match and both men would be assaulted by Kurt Hudson and Hattori Hanzo, who they managed to fight off. The next week on Ignition III, Spin, along with Beowulf, Naruto Uzumaki and Ichigo Kurosaki, defeated the team of Hudson, Hanzo, Sasuke Uchiha and Jason Krueger in an eight-man tag team match. On the July 26, 2013 episode of Ignition, he would take on Hanzo and lost, thus giving Hudson the right to call the stipulation for his match against Beowulf at Rebellion.
Spin is insane in the membrane, but he's a nice guy always willing to stick up for friends or loved ones he always gets into random, crazy, insane situations. There are a few words to describe Spin—(Spin: Sexy, handsome, awesome? :O) ...Those, but he always goes out to that ring with a smile on his face and insanity in his eyes. He doesn't care what he has to risk, he would simply risk it and have fun doing it.
Personal Life Edit
Every so often, Spin hangs out with Tammy Blake and goes on exciting and crazy adventures with her, sometimes causing problems for everyone else that lives in the Fiction Wrestling Multiverse (FWM).
Spin is currently engaged to Asui Hikaru.
Around the FWM, Spin is the "Butt Monkey", meaning he gets his butt kicked a lot by various fictional characters, objects of the Multiverse, authors (Yes, authors), and real life professional wrestlers such as The Shield.
