He was attacked backstage during the Honor Roll pre-show, unmasked by an unknown assailant who turned out to be Genocide.
Super Houdini was born with a hideous face. He could not go to school because of the ridicule he faced from schoolmates. He was homeschooled, and only saw family. But he always loved wrestling and closely watched it. He would also always cheer for the faces, and get angry when a heel would win, or sad when a face would turn heel.
When he turned 20, his parents died in a car crash and he was forced to leave. He tried to get a normal career but couldn't due to his 'features'. So he decided to wear a mask to hide it, and started to work odd small jobs. One day a kid said he "He looks like a wrestler on TV." Houdini saw this as a chance, so he trained for two years. Finally he thought he was ready, so he decided to try out in Japan. He moved to a small town near Tokyo and wrestled in minor independent federations. He fought hardcore matches, gimmick matches, all while wearing the mask. He eventually got his name "Super Houdini" for being extremely high flying and agile inside the squared circle. He also met a tag team partner named Shawn Mazein.
He eventually moved back to America, not wanting to become big in Japan. He soon found LPW and signed a contract.

Cleveland Twist (The opponent will be on the floor in the middle of the ring, then Houdini will go to one of the ropes and bounce off, as if to do a lionsault, but then twists and turns in mid air to deliver a legdrop to the opponent)
