Mikey Whipwreck was one of several performers to break out in Extreme Championship Wrestling before accepting a deal with WCW. His WCW run would only last a couple of months, however, as he received no considerable push from the company. Whipwreck returned to ECW, where he remained until that company went bankrupt. He never received an offer to join the WWE following the demise of ECW, and Whipwreck went on to work for multiple companies including Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. Whipwreck has trained big-name performers such as Zack Ryder and Jay Lethal, and he said in March of 2015 that the time had come to put his wrestling character away for good.
