Gregory Black grew up in Boston, Massachusetts where his parents, once independent wrestlers that wrestled in Germany, Japan, Mexico, and Canada before settling down, owned a wrestling promotion known as the Boston Wrestling League. Gregory Black spent most of his time growing up in the locker room while his father booked the shows and his mother ran the concession stand and occasionally booked shows. Black had an early advantage at a young age being the offspring of two successful wrestlers. As he grew up, his parents allowed him to work for the promotion. He started off as an interviewer while training to be a wrestler.
While in training, his parents made it clear to the ones training Black to treat him like any other student and not go easy on him due to his family ties. Black learned moves fairly quickly and could grasp certain concepts that other students could not. Black's ability was best described as "Natural". The wrestlers who trained him told his father and his father was curious about this. In a training match, Black showed how natural the ability came to him when he managed to outwrestle his father who was a very well respected technical wrestler.
Black debuted in BWL as the mysterious American Icon known as Eagle X. He used a flying crossbody to great effectiveness that captured him the BWL Junior Heavyweight title on 3 different occasions. This of course would lead Black out of Boston and into a moment of big time.
World Wrestling CircuitEdit
After leaving BWL, Gregory Black was signed to WWC still under the gimmick of Eagle X. There he captured the WWC World Tag Team titles with 3 different partner as well as the WWC Interstate title and WWC Heavyweight title. The promotion the folded and Gregory Black was out of a job.
Return To The Boston Wrestling LeagueEdit
Gregory Black returned to The Boston Wrestling League as a heel manager by the name of Mr. Black. Mr. Black ran a faction known as "The Black Inc." which had a good amount of champions. Eventually word got around that Black was taking bigger cuts of their pay and the group dissolved.
After that, Black challenged his father to a match for control over BWL. His father put up a hell of a fight but Gregory Black managed to defeat him after he used a fan's soda to temporarily blind his father then roll him up. As the new boss of BWL, Black made every faces' time there into a nightmare. A rematch happened after Black's father returned with the same stipulation for power of BWL. Gregory Black lost when his father used the same tactic that Black used in throwing a soft drink into Black's face before rolling him up.
All-Styles Wrestling (ASW) Edit
Gregory Black started to work on a promotion where it was a mixed bag of action. After months of planning, the first A.S.W match was Chris Steele vs. Michael Hazard in which Hazard won. From then on, Gregory Black scouted talent from all over the world and eventually signed a roster of wrestlers who wanted to be part of a steady league. A.S.W also had a few celebrities wrestling for the promotion such as Mr. Clean, The Mario Brothers, Cheech & Chong, Roger Rabbit among others.
After seeing how CAW leagues were put together, Gregory Black released the celebrity CAWs in favor of wrestlers who weren't known to anyone. Gregory Black as the boss of All-Styles Wrestling has brought about a personal code that Black has which is, If he is in power he will not be wrestling in his league. This code was to counter what most CAW owners would do in the fact of giving themselves the titles and not losing to anyone.
All-Styles Wrestling enjoyed a good run until closing down on a hiatus after Gregory Black signed a contract with SEA
Sports Entertainment Alternative (SEA)Edit
When Brian "The Bull" James was issuing an open challenge to anyone, Gregory Black was quick to respond. Gregory Black made his debut against Brian "The Bull" James for the SEA World Heavyweight Championship. Gregory Black was well on his way to defeating James until Andy Morales got involved which cost Black the match.
Not deterred by Morales' jealousy, Gregory Black secured a spot at Dawn Of Destiny Day 2 in the Stairway To Heaven Match after defeating Divine Grace. Black made it to the end against Morales. Their match was a Hell In A Cell match where Gregory Black showed his true toughness after not only getting up from being thrown off the cell multiple times but also kicking out of Morales' DDT and Death Valley Driver.
After that, Gregory Black got his second wind and started to kick it up into high gear. After hitting The Black Valentine on Morales and pinning him, Gregory Black seemingly had it won until the lights went out and SEA owner, Joseph Matos was in the cell and started attacking Gregory Black. After Matos' attack, Black tried to fight off Morales some more but it was not enough. Morales defeated Gregory Black with a DDT to secure the Stairway To Heaven title shot.

With his girlfriend, Sophia Giovanni, Black signed up for CCL. His first match was against Mason Kronik in which Black won by DQ but was severely beat up after the match. As part of the March Madness tournament, Gregory Black's first round opponent is Thanos. Most recently, Gregory Black probably dug an even deeper hole when he called Thanos a "smurf". Not too much of a shock that Gregory Black's kind words towards Thanos earned him a loss against The Mad Titan after Thanos put Black down with not only an F-5 but also a flying fist drop.
During CCL Uprising, Gregory Black got a little bit of payback on Mason Kronik when he blasted Kronik with a chair shot during Mason's match against The Suspect, which allowed Suspect to pick up the win.
