Trained under former WWE star TJ Wilson (Tyson Kidd), Michael Richard Blais has established himself as one of the standard-bearers of Canadian professional wrestling. Beginning his career with the legendary Stampede Wrestling, “God’s Gift to Wrestling” quickly earned a reputation as one of the Canadian wrestling scene’s brightest young talents. In his time with Stampede, Blais became the youngest Stampede British Commonwealth Mid-Heavyweight Champion in the promotion’s history.
Through most of his career, Blais primarily wrestled for the Prairie Wrestling Alliance, based out of Edmonton, Alberta. In his time with the PWA, MRB became synonymous with the promotion, earning every championship the promotion had to offer. In his time with the Prairie Wrestling Alliance, Blais formed a tandem with Brandon Van Danielson as the Western Lions, where the duo became the first-ever co-holders of the PWA Championship.
A part of each and every LPW show since it’s inception, Blais played a foundational role in the promotion’s early success. Blais’ tilts with the likes of Randy Myers and Travis Williams culminated at LPW 4, where he became the first-ever Love Pro Wrestling Grand Champion. In his time at the top of the promotion, MRB was challenged by some of the best and brightest in the Canadian independent scene, including a series of first-time-ever tilts against Mitch Clarke, Nicole Matthews, and Mark Wheeler.
