In 2003, Metal started his wrestling career at age 13 when he stepped in the ring opposite Canadian wrestling icon, Chi Chi Cruz and All Japan Pro Wrestling Superstar, Phil LaFon. Through these mentors, Metal was exposed to a diverse collection of wrestling styles to add to his arsenal.
In 2013, Metal was selected to work with the famed Lucha Libra Company, AAA in Mexico. It was there he had the unique opportunity to learn from masters of the art of Lucha Libre, such as Silver King and El Gran Apache. It was in Mexico where Metal truly honed his craft, taking part in drills, training camps and matches with some of the wrestling industry's biggest Superstars. Having returned from Mexico with a new wealth of knowledge and a polished resume, Heavy Metal has dominated the Central Canadian scene having wrestled The Young Bucks, Kevin Nash and Scott Steiner on home soil.
In 2020 Heavy Metal decided to pursue a passion project, and so Top Talent Wrestling Academy was created. With his accumulated years of knowledge and experiences, Top Talent Wrestling Academy was the perfect opportunity for Heavy Metal to help inspire future generations to pursue their dreams in the world of professional wrestling.
