Josh Alexander Early Life
Johnny Devine taught Josh Alexander how to wrestle. 2005 marked his debut. His career then began on the local independent circuit in Canada. In Ontario’s 2010 Alpha-1 promotion, he made the acquaintance of wrestler Ethan Page, with whom he quickly forged a friendship. They created the tag team Monster Mafia and began competing for other organisations, like Ring of Honor (ROH) and AAW Wrestling, a year later. He had a neck injury in an AAW competition in 2013. He took a break to recover and then went back to work. A few months later, he suffered a neck injury again while competing in an ROH trial match against ReDRagon. He would have his C5-C6 vertebrae fused to repair the damage after suffering a disc herniation.
To avoid losing the chance to work with ROH, he did not take any time off during this period and hid the ailment. In their first match for Pro Wrestling Guerilla (PWG), Monster Mafia faced The Young Bucks in February 2015. In a subsequent match against Matt Sydal and Chris Sabin, he would suffer another neck injury. Once more, Alexander would persevere through it, and in May, he and Page would compete in the annual Dynamite Duumvirate Tag Team Title Tournament. They would defeat Joey Ryan and Candice LeRae in the opening round bout to win the PWG World Tag Team Championship. The throne would be lost later that night, ending the brief reign. In July 2015, Alexander again underwent neck surgery, after which he gave up wrestling.
