Tyler Stark had a very normal childhood, with a military father and a stay-at-home mom in a middle-class neighborhood of Richmond. Tyler grew up idolizing his father and his work, and as soon as he came of age he joined the 1st Battalion, 30th infantry of the United States Army. He was immediately deployed overseas and found himself on the front lines of Operation Iraqi Freedom, being one of the first American soldiers to set foot in Baghdad. He voluntarily was sent on several combat tours over the course of his 8 years and earned the rank of Captain, as well as awards ranging from two Purple Hearts to the Silver Star medal. Upon his honorable discharge, he returned to Richmond to live with his wife, Rachel. After some difficulty adjusting to civilian life, Tyler was approached by his uncle, Master Chief Phillips, who suggested wrestling as an alternative. Gleefully accepting the offer, Tyler signed up and commenced training under celebrated LPW superstar, Mass Chaos. Now he's stepping up to the big stage, to show the world the best the united States has to offer.
Signed on by his uncle to be the perfect superstar, Stark debuted strongly, defeating Paul Brooks and Connor McLendon in a tag team match.
