Biography


So much has been written about this GWF legend that it is hard to try and come up with original material about him. Suffice to say, this legend was one of the greatest in the history of pro wrestling.

He entered the GWF in 2074 as a raw and green wrestler, fresh out of the Galactic Wars. He sought revenge against those he fought against, and he established himself as a champion of freedom as he waged feuds against diabolical aliens intent on subversion. In fact, his two feuds with Mangus, Destroyer of Humans, and then Comrade Terror are two of the bloodiest feuds in GWF history. They defined his career as a top singles contender. Sam also learned scientific wrestling skills to go along with his natural tough-guy abilities, so that over the years, he became a very accomplished mat wrestler.

Once Sam retired, he took over the managerial duties of the stable of wrestlers he helped to form, the Federation Defense Fighters. Sam guided the group to great heights until a very controversial turn he took against his lifelong mentor and friend Omega. He directed his wrestlers to cause havoc in the GWF, stating that Omega had kept him from reaching his true potential over the years. What subsequently happened was a bitter feud between the two legends.

Finally, Sam seemed to come to his senses and his bitterness and resentment towards Omega subsided. It was later found out that Mesmer had hypnotized Sam into this feud, using Sam as a puppet to destroy Omega. Thankfully, the fans forgave Sam and his status as beloved wrestling legend was restored. Soon, however, Sam was so vigorous in his defense of the Galactic Code that he made people wonder if he was going off the deep end again, Mesmer's influence or not! Professing to fight fire with fire, he and new best friends Archon and Manslaughter (the Code Enforcer) began their own crusade to beat the Villain teams at their own game, a move that caused some fans to turn against them. But when all members of the FDF were attacked by the Alien Connection prior to the 2114 Sudden Death toumament, the fans' faith in the team was restored, and once again, Sam piloted his team to a victory over Mangus and his goons.

Sam moved on to another feud against "traitors" Genesis Coalition. 2116 saw him leading his team against the newcomers Greatest Show in the Galaxy and the Troubleshooters. When he tried to pressure Atys Tetrac to resume the Code Enforcer identity in 2117, Manslaughter was reborn and Sam lost a powerful ally. Feeling that the wrestling business had passed him by, he announced his retirement at the end of 2117. A man who prized loyalty above many other virtues, when he was in a bad mood, everyone was a traitor to Sam. It’s been quoted by the Commander that chasing Mangus out of the GWF was the highlight of his career.
