Richard Michaels is the long lost brother to Joseph Alexander Michaels, who was born in the same hospital but three years apart from each other. His parents had a dislike and so was often left out in family outings or activities from time to time. When Joseph was enrolled into kickboxing, Richard became an outcast and left his parents home with no where to run or hide.
His grandfather, King Michaels, Jr. was an experienced kickboxer and found his grandson straying in his neighbourhood picking up his daily dinner from time to time, it was not until six months after seeing Richard in a huge state that it was decided by him and his wife, Adele that he was to be one of their own (considering that Alexandra Michaels was their only child).
Years later, motivated by his brother's decision to take up kickboxing classes, Richard took matters into his own hands and dedicated himself to a gruelling training session, which consisted of his grandfather training him to become a professional kickboxer. At the age of 21, he took his kickboxing skills and enrolled into the Lords of Pain Wrestling (LPW) roster to gain a measure of revenge against his brother.
Richard Michaels signed with Lords of Pain Wrestling (LPW) on October 16, 2009. He is expected to compete at Epic as part of the pre-show against Joshanaitor. He did score his first win in his opener against Joshanaitor at Epic, but would be knocked out by Son of Shockey and Kafu after calling his brother out.
Tornado Backflip (Soon after Richard's opponent is knocked out cold by a moveset, he swiftly moves towards the nearest corner of the ring and climbs up the rubber pads while at the same time facing the audience. Instead of fully making his way up towards the top rope, he kicks off from one of the pads while at the same times, makes a backflip onto his opponent. Soon after that, he makes a Pinfall without giving his opponent any chance to catch his/her's breath back)
