Character Bio:
The son of famed Atlantic City Wrestling Federation promotor and former tag team champion ‘Marvelous’ Mark Best, the brash but talented Mike Best comes from a heavy background in both amateur and professional wrestling. His father was a multiple time tag team champion with partner Mike Fazoli, collectively known as The Italian Stallions, and by the age of thirteen Michael had visited more countries than some people visit in their lives, immersing himself into the world of professional wrestling head on. After capturing a state division championship for his Newark, New Jersey high school, he went on to graduate at the top of his class with high honors.

His teachers and peers had the highest hopes for Newark’s brightest young man, but the soul of Mr. Best’s oldest seed had been tainted with the stink of professional wrestling from the beginning, and it wasn’t long before he had laced up his boots for his first professional match,
capturing the Atlantic City Middleweight Championship against Johnny Casanova in a clearly impressive debut. He would hold the title for three months, wrestling for both Jon Page’s Dynasty Wrestling and his father’s own ACWF, until a pressing illness put his beloved father into the hospital. Hanging up his boots, he would not lace them back up for
two years, until his father’s passing in the year 2007. To cope with the loss of his closest mentor and friend, Mike joined the experimental New Jersey based wrestling organization “Project: Violence” later that same year, quickly capturing the P:V World Championship with the help of a cocky new attitude and the interference of Mike Fazoli, his father’s long
time tag team partner.

During the Dynasty Wrestling invasion of Project: Violence, the much loved fan favorite shocked the world when he jumped ship, screwing his then employer and ally Jimmy Moretti when he jumped to the aid of Jon Page and Sewaside, former wrestlers of the competing federation, ultimately leading to the downfall of Project: Violence as a whole.

With Project: Violence in ruins, Best went on to join an up and coming federation known only as EMPIRE. This would be short lived, however, as during his debut match against former stablemate Curtis Knight, he tore his left rotator cuff and found himself out of action for four months. Upon his return to the ring, Mike quickly jumped on board the join Jon
Page/Jimmy Moretti project known as the Sanction Violence Organization, capturing the World Championship after a grueling tournament to name the first title holder in the company. Through underhanded tricks and back-up plans, Best was in the midst of an impressive seven month reign as World Champion when he unexpected re-tore his previously injured rotator cuff, subsequently losing the World Championship to Psyko Stevo at Roll the Dice after a hard fought match. Now he’s back, and better than ever, dusting off his boot’s and getting back to basics.

Entrance Description:
“We’re gonna win,
Don’t wanna be a loser,
Gonna win.
Cause winning really is the only thing,
You wanna fight? Just step inside the ring…”

The lights dim slowly in the arena as the Tron flares to life, an image of two dice roling towards the front of the screen. They come rolling to a stop on snake eyes, before the dots fade into the word “Mike” on one die and “Best” on the other. The dice explode into a highlight video as “We’re Gonna Win” by Bryan Adams blares over the speakers, the bass shaking the arena Gold pyro explodes in the entranceway and the fans begin to boo and jeer, screaming insults as the confident face of ‘The Mike Effect’ Michael Best appears from behind the curtain. He raises two fingers to his lips, blowing a kiss out into the crowd as they hurl obscenities back in his direction. Mike stops for a moment on the stage, slapping his chest twice and pointing out at the crowd, raising his eyebrows and throwing out a wink. He makes his way down the ramp, rolling gingerly into the ring and stretching out as he awaits the start of the match.

"Jon, I burned my bridge with Jimmy Moretti a long time ago, and I did it because I believed in Dynasty Wrestling. And yet, where were you when it was time to return to the favor? Where were you when I was suspended from Project: Violence and stripped of the championship I’d worked so hard to hold on to? "
