Despite being one of the youngest members of the IPW roster, Michael Richards has managed to gain some impressive experience since debuting in 2015.
Starting off his career as an aggressive, rule bending rookie, Richards found himself aligned with the despised Benjamin Keen, eventually becoming the enforcer for The Young Nats. During his stint with The Nats Richards captured both the NZ Tag Team Championship and the Armageddon Cup Championship. Eventually becoming tired of The Young Nats ways, Richards broke away from the group in late 2016, and has since become a notable solo competitor in IPW, recently earning himself a NZ Heavyweight Championship match and continuously having strong showings at live events.
Outside of IPW Michael Richards has travelled overseas to expand his wrestling skills and knowledge, with a training stint at Ring of Honor’s dojo and scoring both a WWE and NJPW Tryout in 2017. With an impressive resume both abroad and within New Zealand, it’s only a matter of time before Richards’ sees gold again in IPW.
