‘Flying’ Mike Bird made his debut at Black Water 2017 in an incredible main event pitting Bird with his fellow Welshman Wild Boar and Jimmy Havoc against Chris Brookes, Travis Banks and Jinny.
One of the most notorious hardmen in all of British wrestling, the ‘Ginger Jesus’ team wasn’t successful, but his grizzled display and devastating moveset was enough to earn him a Brighton Championship Tournament qualifier against eventual finalist Spike Trivet.
Despite Bird landing an unbelievable dive across the ring, the ‘King of Strong and Stable Style’ needed to use a spanner to the head to overcome perhaps his toughest opponent to date.
