Biography

Luke began watching World Wrestling Entertainment at the age of 10 in 1998, and began training in 2004.[1] He was originally trained by Andrew "The Shark" Carter[2] at the AAW Academy in Port Kennedy, Western Australia. Luke then furthered his training by joining the EPW School of Pro Wrestling under the guidance of head trainer Damian Slater.[3][4]

Professional wrestling career

Luke made his wrestling debut in 2006 under the ring name Craven. During his first US tour in Wisconsin in 2009, he was given the nickname "The Australian Sensation", which was then incorporated into his ring name. In the US in 2009, he wrestled in New Jersey, Indiana and multiple times in Wisconsin against opponents such as Steve Corino, Zach Gowen and Jimmy Jacobs. [5]

In July 2012, Craven wrestled again in Indiana and won three matches to win the James Wilson Memorial Tournament[6], before wrestling in Illinois for the first time in the same month.

In November 2017 Craven appeared on the Professional Championship Wrestling event Under Siege where he battled with Mark Cage but came up short. On February 17th 2018 Craven teamed with Andrew "The Shark" [7], in an alliance known as "The Assault Squad", where they battled the Western Kingdom for the AAW tag team championships.

On 3 August 2018, Craven became the first Australian wrestler to appear at The Crash Lucha Libre, in a six man tag team match where Cosmico, Craven and X-Peria defeated Star Boy, Viento and Zarco at the Auditorio de Tijuana in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. In August 2018, Craven also appeared in matches in Florida and Michigan, before heading to Singapore in October 2018 for the first time in his wrestling career.[8]
