‘God’s Gift To Wrestling’ Michael Richard Blais, might just be one of Canada’s best kept secrets when it comes to independent professional wrestling.
Yeah, he’s been seen on shows like Monday Night Raw, NXT TV, and NXT Takeover, but you may have blinked and missed him.
He stood in the ring against Braun Strowman on RAW, and partnered with Lars Sullivan on NXT. He even tried to get in between Matt Riddle and Killian Dain on NXT Takeover: Toronto.
On any given weekend you’ll still find him working the grind, travelling from one independent show to the next.
On this special episode of Discover. Progress. we sit down with MRB and discuss it all. From how he got into wrestling, to standing in the ring with the likes of Braun Strowman, Lars Sullivan, Samoa Joe and even Cody Rhodes. We also take a bit of a behind the scenes look at what it looks like to be an independent wrestler these days.
While he has worked for numerous promotions, including heading over to the UK this past summer, you can regularly see him working his local promotion, out of Edmonton, Alberta, PWA.
