acob McKail went by some other name in some other wrestling organisation for the better part of his career. He was considered to be a clown, not a real challenger to the mid or even higher card, he was just someone the bookers used to entertain the crowd.
Then his wife was diagnosed with cancer and everything changed. He took time away from the wrestling industry for the better part of three months to look after his sick wife, but the cancer she had was terminal.
He was by her side right until the end and with her dying words made him promise to follow his dreams. She wanted him to follow his dreams of success within the wrestling industry. To be the best he can be. To stop being the clown of the show and to be a real contender.
He hasn't looked back since.
Now he doesn't much care about anything other than succeeding in the GCW, everything else he considers to be irrelevant and a wast of time - including backstage interviews and 'making friends'.
