Tyler Black made his start in the middle America indy scene. He began turning heads in IWA:MS. His first national exposure was wrestling for the short lived Wrestling Society X promotion. It was there that he began to team with Jimmy Jacobs as D.I.F.H. (Doin' It For Her). He and Jacobs began to work together in ROH now calling themselves The Age of the Fall. Tyler was seen as a star in the making and was able to capture the ROH World Title from Austin Aries. He would go on to hold that title for 9 months before being offered two contracts. One was to TNA, which would lead to going straight to TV, and the other was a WWE contract in which he would be reporting to FCW, WWE's development territory. It wasn't until Evan Borne (Matt Sydal) convinced him to take the WWE contract and work his way to TV. Since reporting to FCW (now under the name Seth Rollins) he has continued to make waves through his work. He most recently won the Jack Brisco Classic tournament after defeating Hunico and Richie Steamboat.
Tyler Black's style is one that can be hard to describe. He is a man who wears many hats, and mixes multiple styles. He has 3 ways he likes to finish his opponents, he uses a Turnbuckle Powerbomb followed with a Superkick as his main, but also has popularized the Small Package Driver, and also dazzles the crowd with a beautiful Phoenix Splash.
Our staff pick comes from Absolute Intense Wrestling. Tyler Black vs. Chris Hero is a hard hitting match between two longtime ROH performers. Black is the smaller man and you can see one of the traits that is prevalent in every one of his matches, his heart. The emotion that Tyler is able to emote in every match is a major asset that sets him above many of his peers.
