I've been watching a lot of Ring of Honor lately, and if there's one guy there that seems to be the heir apparent, the guy who's going to do it all... it's Tyler Black.
Tyler Black has competed in many North American independent promotions including Scott County Wrestling, IWA Mid South, the National Wrestling Alliance, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, Wrestling Society X and Ring of Honor. In several promotions, Black was the tag team partner of Jimmy Jacobs, competing under the names Doin' It For Her (WSX), Kiss 2 Kill (PWG) and was once a member of The Age of the Fall along with Jacobs, Necro Butcher, Lacey, Allison Wonderland, Joey Matthews, Zach Gowen, Delirious, Brodie Lee, and Rain.
At Final Battle 2008, Black lost a Number One Contenders match for the ROH World Heavyweight Championship to Austin Aries. Jimmy Jacobs distracted Black as he was trying to use his Phoenix Splash. Jacobs would turn on Black after the match. Austin Aries came to aid Black, but then subsequently hit him with a chair. Because of the ending of the Final Battle match, Black was given a non-title match against the ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness on January 16th in Manassas, VA. In the match Black defeated McGuinness with a superkick. The next night in Edison, New Jersey, Black was set to face Jimmy Jacobs, but when Austin Aries, the #1 contender, refused to face McGuinness that night, Black was put into the main event this time with the title on the line. The match however ended in a time limit draw just as Black was going for the pin following a superkick. On June 26 Black defeated Jimmy Jacobs in a steel cage match to end their feud. On October 10, 2009, Black defeated Kenny King in a first round match and then Claudio Castagnoli, Colt Cabana, Delirious, Chris Hero and Roderick Strong in the finals to win the 2009 Survival of the Fittest tournament.
