Alex Reyn made his official in-ring debut at jOlt wrestling on their Rise of the Legends PPV, attacking the flamboyant tag team known as the entertainers. He crippled Alfie Button and challenged Darren Best to a war, hoping to bring out the fighter within him.
The two clashed for several months, but Darren was unable to avenge his former friend and eventually fell to Alex Reyn\'s hands too.
jOlt closed down soon after and Alex left to seek opponents elsewhere.
Eventually coming to Hard Knox Wrestling on the Defiance brand, he made a name for himself by savagely assaulting and crippling Colby Spencer, offended that Colby called himself the \"Evolution of wrestling\". Soon after that, he engaged in a feud with another newcomer named Ashley Chase. Hospitalising her friend Tiffany and kidnapping her younger cousin to motivate Ashley into fighting him at her full ability.
Despite Ashley overwhelming him in their match with her strength, speed and aggression, Alex was able to stay focused and use his cunning and tactics to pick up the victory. Though he returned her cousin to Ashley out of respect for her efforts.
A few weeks later, he was challenged to a match at Divine Supremacy by a mysterious entity called \'Flame\' who also seemed to have ties to the supernatural. While Alex was at first dismissive, he furiously accepted the challenge when Flame interfered during his match against then Bloodlust Champion Brian Stryker.
After defeating Flame at Divine Supremacy, Alex set his eyes on the Bloodlust division. Declaring all participants to be unworthy of the title, he entered into the Mansion of Ruin match. While he was unsuccessful, he managed to hospitalise half the participants, showing a beastial, more powerful side to himself.
Following the Mansion of Ruin match, Alex Reyn began to target wrestlers who had won the Bloodlust title during it\'s 24/7 period. Believing that they were like seagulls scavenging over scraps and that winning the title in such a manner was disgraceful. However, his attempt to carry out this judgement and execution was halted when one of his targets was saved by Brian Stryker.
A bloody feud began between the two as Alex Reyn became determined to punish Brian for this interference. Even attacking him in his hotel room. It reached a point where a member of the HKW Board of Directors threatened to fire both of them and have them arrested if they did not keep their hands off each other until their match at Destiny (HKW\'s Wrestlemania).
Knowing that Brian could no longer touch him, Alex Reyn used this opportunity to brutalise and hospitalise the man whom Brian had previously saved. Doing it right in front of Brian Stryker so that Brian was forced to watch, unable to stop it.
The two fought at Destiny, and despite ruthless tactics from Alex Reyn, Brian emerged victorious.
But at a cost.
The months of attacks and mind games had finally taken their toll on Stryker and he snapped, beating Alex Reyn to a bloody pulp. He won the match, but for one, horrifying minute, he had become every bit the monster that REYN is.
Several months later, Reyn would appear in NBW to attack then NBW Keystone champion and Hall of Famer, Max Hopper, only to be stopped by former rival Darren Best, reigniting their feud. Unfortunately, interferance from A-List prevented this match’s conclusion and Reyn left Darren to deal with A-list, while he set his sights on Max Hopper and his Keystone title once again.
Despite a valiant and heroic effort by Max, the East Wind would prove too much for him, and Alex would claim his first championship in the Keystone title. After the match, he would heartlessly assault his opponent, breaking his leg and ending the hall of famers legendary career.
Following that match, he began a series of open challenges, culminating in a match against Johnny Bedlam at Legacy, but was forced to take time off to recover from mounting injuries.
Upon his return, he was challenged by Pro-wrestling veteran Keegan who hoped to rekindle his career by defeating the rising star. Like Hopper before him though, he was unsuccessful and was forced to retire due to injuries sustained.
Next came Keegan’s long time rival, the Son of Malta, who hoped to do what his old foe could not. But despite a grueling battle, he too failed to topple Alex’s reign (pun not intended).
Having reluctantly aligned himself with corrupted manager Xander Napoli, Reyn was tasked with destroying wrestler Rey Diamentes, However, Rey proved more than a challenge and despite not succesfully defeating Reyn in their first match, the King of Diamonds earned the East Wind’s interest, and Reyn began to taunt the newcomer. Hoping to bring out a worthy challenge.
He got what he wanted and more. In a match for the Keystone Champion on the 117th episode of Slam, the King of Diamonds finally toppled the East Wind. leaving the formerly undefeated champion shell-shocked in the middle of the ring.
In the following months, Alex became more reckless, more vicious and more arrogant, he seemed to almost be in denial about his loss, and set his eyes on the promotion of Southern Championship Wrestling. Going on a rampage that set him after the company\'s oldest active wrestler, The Legend, Sean Darring.
But although Reyn made short work of the unsuspecting Darring in their first contest, his arrogance blinded him to The Legend\'s resolve, and Sean defeated the East Wind at Bloody Sunday.
With two major losses in a row, Reyn was now a mess, a shell of his former self, he began spiralling down, losing to even the lowest of jobbers.
And it was in this pitiful state that his old rival Darren Best found him once again.
If Darren had wanted a chance at revenge, there was no better opportunity.
It was too easy.
Darren had worked for years to defeat Alex Reyn. The East Wind. And whoever this pathetic wreck was, it was NOT Alex Reyn.
So Darren resolved to bring Alex Reyn BACK. Because when he finally faced the East Wind again, it would be with his rival at his BEST (Pun not intended).
Unfortunately... he succeeded.
And a grizzly injury to one of Darren\'s friends heralded The East Wind\'s return. His confidence and composure now restored, The First Predator has once again set its judgemental gaze upon the wrestling world.
Hollowing a brief stint terrorising IBW as the Hardcore Champion and a feud with the Rutherford Guys, including Daniel Dream, Alex Reyn’s current whereabouts are unknown.
