I was shocked to see he's only 29... then one of my friends who'd seen him facetiously said he was surprised he made it that far. Having not followed CZW or, while the Backseat Boyz were there, ROH, I'm not familiar with his work, but I've heard a lot about him.

I remember seeing him at an ROH show some years back, but he was just out in the parking lot making a scene. He even had a guy videotaping him as he crashed the show. He seemed out of his mind then. After that came the times in and out of prison and rehab.
He was given a couple of chances in CZW after his initial time there, but unfortunately he didn't have very good matches and he disappeared again after that. His early work though with Kashmere was pretty great, and so I will choose to remember that.

I used to immediately sign The Backseat Boyz and The Briscoe Brothers in Extreme Warfare Revenge (and later, Total Extreme Wrestling), and have them compete in epic feuds for the WCW World Tag Team Title.
I'm afraid I've never actually seen any of those four individuals wrestle, though.

Let me throw this idea out there: gimmicks are a cover for a lack fo character development. Why make a 3 dimensional character who reacts to certain situations in certain ways, has a unique moral (or immoral) code, personality and interview quirks, etc....
