Dark Prophet, a name many men have feared for nearly five years now. Dark Prophet, two words that have somehow crept into the Efed Underground Subconscious and has been synonymous with murder and fear since he started his now legendary career. The man, the Myth, the Legend; Dark Prophet. Though having such a tough beginning in Pojo Wrestling Alliance, he has become a multi-time World Champion and one of the most iconic Wrestlers known to man. Though his methods cruel, this man is ingrained into the minds of all men. He recently has been wrestling in NCW, under the gimmick of the "True God of Xtreme".

Before he was Dark Prophet, he was Angel Christianson. Born in the city of Brooklyn Park, a suburb of Minneapolis, he grew up in a broken home. His mother was his only real parent, his grandparents lived hours away in Fargo, ND. From an early age he was gifted in school and music. He was changed forever when he met Lorelei Nelson. She was a temporary friend of his, but what she did to him behind closed doors at a party during his Freshman year of High School; she did something that released a part of him unknown till then. She tied him up, and sexually used him in ways that were unwanted at the time. Forced to fornicate with her, something in him snapped. He changed; as just two months later she was found dead. Her body was found with him curled in a corner, cradling the knife that he did it with. Her upper torso was mutilated by the gratuitous stabs. Being underage, and clearly mentally unstable he was not sent to a prison or juvenile hall, he was entrusted to the care of the Minnesota State Hospital in Fergus Falls. He was examined, and properly treated and by the time he was released at 18 years of age. He was "cured" and allowed to go back into society. Having his past, he could not get a normal job anywhere. It was during those hard times he met Zachary Zimmerson, the man who would become his best friend and band mate for the next five years.
Musical Career, Love, Tragedy During those five great years the band Silent Sin arose to a fame unprecedented by any Hard Rock group out of Minnesota, ever. Three albums, millions of records and three tours he amassed wealth unknown to him until then. During this time, one of the roadies, a Julietta Lee, caught his eye. They courted for a year, starting when he was 20, after he turned 21 he proposed to her and they were married June 12, 2000. Unbeknownst to him, something ill was brewing. The band had just finished their third full length album when Julietta's psychotic sister came to live with them. Joanie was unstable, and quickly began obsessing over him. He slowly began to drift into a place within himself not used since the murder of his rapist. On the last day of the tour, he went home, and no one knew what was about to happen. After a long night of drinking and drugs, he blacked out. When he woke, Julietta, the twin sister of Joanie and his wife; was dead. Blood was everywhere, on his hands and the furniture. Joanie was nowhere to be found, and he immediately blamed himself for her tragic death. The crime went as an unsolved murder, as the murder weapon had none of his fingerprints on them. After the funeral he did the unthinkable. He split the band up, even though there was no problems with them personally. He went into hiding, and only a week later was admitted to a hospital burnt from head to toe. He spent the next couple months in the hospital burn ward. By the time he turned 23, he had made his choice to pursue his childhood fantasy of being a professional wrestler. He trained for two years and wrestled in backyard shows around the US and Canada until he was picked up by Pojo Wrestling Alliance later that year. His wrestling career as Dark Prophet had begun.
Prophet started out badly. Pojo had wrestlers of immense experience there, none were rookies like him and he struggled through battles with the Hardcore Champion Akusai and other PWA stars. One of his most memorable matches was when he was thrown in front of a subway train in a Falls Count Anywhere match. He never won a title, and was released after his contract expired. However badly he was beaten there, he moved on, having been scouted by one Mike Franey. This was his shot at the big time, but he was to go somewhere else first.
UBAWF was his first "Indy" Federation since his pro career started, he surprised himself by winning. He was undefeated all but one match in his tenure there till it closed months later. He won the Hardcore Title, defeated all opponents and began to sculpt his persona of "Dark Prophet" to a razor edge. As a move by the booking staff, knowing he was leaving, forced him to drop the title to Spike Kane shortly after he obtained it. From there, Mike Franey, who had been keeping contact with him, had finally allowed him to move on. April's Pay Per View was coming up, and he needed one new name that would change his federation of DBW forever. Little did he know but he was going to unleash one of the biggest rising stars onto the surface of that federation.
DBW, Diva Board Wrestling hired him in March of '03, after running in obscurity he was going to start a 9 month run in the federation. His first match was not the highlight of the Pay Per View, it was his interference in the Owner's Buried Alive Match against Hunter. Prophet ran out and slammed the shovel into the skull of Hunter, who had been harassing him backstage for the prior week. He was then joined by the rest of the locker room as they collectively began to bury him alive. It was that night he would be re-introduced to his wife's sister, but didn't really think it was her at first. Joanie Lee, she was one of his biggest challenges the entire time. They had a feud that started that night. Over the next five months they would battle in the ring, in graveyards, backstage, and through many countries. The culmination of the first two and a half months, La Guerre in Paris on July 4 was his biggest match so far. Though he lost, the immense popularity of both him and Joanie skyrocketed after their epic Graveyard Match. Prophet was buried alive, after being bludgeoned down with a small grave marker and being thrown through a headstone. They saw him last being covered with dirt by the bulldozer on site, but no one expected what came next.
Later that week, at Uncensored; he showed up in Joanie's locker room, and kidnapped her manager, Jeanna. He was filmed torturing her for the next two weeks, and at the next Pay Per View there was another battle, this time a Tag Team Match between Prophet and Joanie, with the defunct former tag champs as their partners. Prophet emerged victorious that night, but he was soon to be struck again by Joanie. She began to taunt him with his deceased wife. She even defiled her grave, dug up her body and burned her coffin in the ring. Their next real match was to be at RIOTS in October, but they were forced before then, in the September Pay Per View to team together against the Tag Champions. And though they kicked each other's asses as much as their opponents, they emerged the Tag Team Champions, and were immediately scorned for fighting. Through the next month they dominated their opponents yet never got along. At RIOTS they were scheduled in a match that would surprise the entire federation. They were scheduled in a "Anger Management" Match, no victor, all weapons legal; just to finish their fight so they could cooperate. However their cooperation started that very night. After a chair shot to her head, a bloody lipped Joanie smiled seductively at Prophet, and he turned around smashing the chair on Jeanna as she attempted to come from behind. To everyone's surprise, Joanie began to kick and beat down her manager. Prophet saw that and they finished off the manager, sending her to the hospital but the shock came when they kissed and embraced in the center of the ring, tag titles in hand. After five months of battling they were not an item.
Their glory was soon to be tainted, as they were stripped of their titles the next week after a man, Synner, came and attacked Prophet while he was on the outside, ref's back turned. Joanie was pinned and Synner ran back into the crowd. They never saw each other in a match as Prophet was soon injured at a House Show and forced to sit out while the federation announced it was changing owners, names, and possibly for good. At New Year's Eve's show, Prophet was not there to watch Joanie and her former manager try to kill each other on a rooftop. He was ambushed by Synner again, run down while walking down a sidewalk miles away. He was sent to the hospital for the next month, where he met his first real manager, Lucietta.
The Height of Power, 2004
Returning to the ring, his manager Lucietta, he had a short tenure in Xtreme Hardcore Federation. His first month he earned a spot in Mongo Corp, then was betrayed as he joined and left The Children of the Phoenix. His last match was his match against Snake for the Hardcore title which he lost, his contract expired and he showed up the next week in XCW.
This was his big break. He showed up and defeated everything in his path. Within the first month he was given a shot at Jon Michaels, World Champ. He won and was soon the number one man with a bullseye on his back. He was in contact with Kurt, the new owner of DBW, now IPW and signed to them. But not before faking injury and dropping his first, but not last, world title. He lost to Reckless Jack at Hardcore Anarchy and was said to have broken his leg in the match. However that was not the case as over the next two weeks his rumored return to DBW/IPW was being calculated.
The first few months saw him feuding with Kuroi and Chubbos, fighting for the Hardcore title. Their matches were very skilled and spot-heavy. After winning the low-tier Hardcore Title, he ascended it to almost rival that of the IPW World Championship. For this, he was in constant competition with the owner, Kurt, also known as You Can't Play Me or YCPM.
His psychotic tendencies took over again. While they toured in Germany, he killed a homeless man with his signature weapon, "The Crow". Shortly afterward the match at the next Pay Per View was set, Prophet verses the 7'4" 400+lb Seth Drakin. Seth had recently had triplets with his wife, and was considering retirement before he was called to this unlikely clash of the titans. Prophet, while locked up for the next month in an insane asylum, began a steady decent into insanity. Seth did not help, sending letters from his deceased wife, dead crows, and even burning his manager's face. Three days before the Pay Per View, he escaped the asylum, having concocted his own mysterious and deadly match for the show, Prophet's Asylum. The next night, at the Friday live show, he attacked a victorious Seth Drakin in his last match before the Pay Per View. They carted Prophet away after the cameras went down until the match on Sunday. Little did they know they would see the bloodiest match in history unfold.
The Asylum Match, a barbed wire Hell in a Cell cage, unlimited weapons around the ringside area, and no referee. There was also no door, no escape, just last man standing would win. Both men beat each other until they bled profusely. After a resounding double shot of Barbed Wire Steel Chair and Stone Bible; both men lie motionless on the ground. Blood soaked into the canvas, and both men stood up, staring into each other's eyes before falling down again. The wife of Seth and Lucietta called for the cage risen and both men were immediately taken to the ICU at the local hospital. Both men were given 3 pints of blood transfusions, only a pint away from pushing up daisies each. Prophet, driven insane from the sedatives the month before, checked himself out a day later, only to attempt suicide and show back up again. After two weeks, both men were in the ring again together, but on the same side. They defeated the Tag Champions as Prophet prepared for a match against both the owner and World Champion. He seemed to have it won, Kurt, AKA YCPM lain in his blood on the ground but the lights went out and Prophet disappeared. Not being there to answer any count, the match was called. Footage soon leaked that Prophet, Seth, and what appeared to be Joanie Lee at a nearby graveyard was seen. What was revealed would both curdle the blood of many and baffle others. Joanie was actually Julietta, the twins had been mistaken in the records and his wife was no longer dead. Things were also confusing, as the footage was aired after the pay per view, yet the graveyard was a week before. Prophet and his wife then left IPW as it was turned over to Derek Grant into TWE, forcing the Tag titles from him and Seth. He then went to NWA.
NWA came calling, as his old enemy Reckless Jack tossed his name as a possible contender. He was there for the final months of 2005. The federation closed down not long after the next year began, but not after Prophet was revealed to be a father, the secret knowledge of Prophet for the entire year and his DBW courtship with "Joanie" had created a pregnancy for both of them. Prophet, as soon as the child was born, changed federations once more before fading from the radar, rumored to have either died or permanently retired to raise his family or go back to his rock career.
The next nine months the rumors abounded. He died, he was divorced, he was returning, he was a rocker, the list goes on. Month after Month federation began saying he was coming there. XCW reborn, XHF, TWE, and WCF were among the federations claiming this. He had even had a few matches here and there for each of the aforementioned feds. But, come summer people were beginning to forget his name. Forgetting his legacy, and as his legend became myth, the rumors began coming true under the radar. WrestleView Wrestling Federation had received a call in June, asking to speak to the GM, Jon Michaels. The man Prophet beat for his first world title was surprised to hear not only Prophet wanting to return, but that he wanted to return there. His child now 6 months old, born in December the year prior, was old enough to where he could afford to return to the road. However, preparations needed be made. His scheduled return, Adrenaline Rush in August. The Pay Per View's airing began the next part of his illustrious career.
Dark Prophet came back with a bang. Decimating his opponent, causing a no contest, he literally killed the man, though he was resuscitated later. He was celebrating backstage when Jon Michaels came up to him and asked to join his Stable. Prophet refused and Michaels' hit man Travis Walker blindsides him with a chair shot. The first real humiliation in Prophet's career dealt at his return, it was unknown what sick plans may be in store for the feud; but over the next month his sick mind brought out the worst in him again. He hung Jon's dead father from the rafters during a match, snuck into Jon's house while he slept and threatened to kill or retire Mr. Michaels many different times.
Having decimated Jon Michaels at WVWF's Hallowicked Pay Per View, he returned to XHF, his old stomping grounds. Upon returning he won a buried alive match against Omega, then lost to James Mueller(former XHF Grand Slam Champion). After his loss, he collected himself and destroyed the Phoenix Champion, Kaos, to win his first ever XHF title after his many stays and total of nearly two years on the roster. After receiving no response to his challenges for a few weeks, he decimated his first opponent before jobbing the title off to Joe Everyman. He faced Lestat in a Steel Chage match winning, but promptly left XHF for what is rumored to be the final time.
After his leave from XHF, in WVWF he began a quick descent into madness. After receiving the contract for the Asylum match, he became Catatonic and his wife, Julietta, found him naked and out of his mind. After a few events that were caught on camera, we were left wondering if he'd even make it to Reborn.
The Return of the Asylum and Future in WVWF
Prophet's Asylum returned at the Reborn Pay Per View. Prophet's declining mental stability before the match is a mirror of the last time the cage was used. The Updated cell and addition of four other men to the match made it one of the most violent and brutal of all matches. When the match was over he became WVWF World Heavyweight Champion. From there, nobody really could stop him, except for himself.
Prophet Snaps Dark Prophet, the sick son of a bitch he is, snapped in early March 2007. It appears that in a fit of rage and insanity, he killed his wife and child during a trial for spousal abuse and divorce hearing. It is unknown at this time what the repercussions will be, if any happen. He also killed a police officer, and other bystanders in the mass hysteria that ensued. Somehow, some way, he managed to get out of the legal battles quickly, and when WVWF closed it's doors before the realization of the Haunted Hell match, some people wonder if he'll ever be the same again.
Falling off the face of the Earth
Sources from those near to Prophet have divulged some very disturbing information. After raping and murdering his own mother in what would have been the place of the Haunted Hell match, Prophet sold his house that he shared with Julietta and their child. Fate was said to know where he went, and rumors of Prophet going back to school abound. The general consensus is that he left for school in an attempt to realize some of his more perverse fantasies. With proper training as a doctor, the misuse of his abilities could easily turn him into even more of a torture-crazed monster than ever before. Though his whereabouts and what he is actually doing is a mystery, some people truly wonder if we have seen the last of Prophet, or if this is just another hibernation that will result in another return from retirement.
Indy Wrestler Training
Since late 2005 it has been speculated that his restricted schedule and the appearance of Fate(Formerly Angelo Della Muerte) and his cousin Stahly alludes to the indy wrestling federation and training facility in his hometown of Minneapolis. This is the same place he trained under his uncles guidance many years ago.
So far notable alumnus are his wife, Julietta Lee; Fate; Nick Stahl and it is rumored Dark Prophet is behind the re-training of Bitchcakes McPhee and also responsible for setting Bitchcakes up with his weight-loss program.
Return in NLCW
Dark Prophet returned with a motive in mind in NLCW. Teaming with Jackhammer and JW McCammon they formed Lethal Intent. His losing debut at When World's Collide for the NLCW Television Championship was a close match, and afterwards Lethal Intent took to maiming the other loser, Punk.
Afterwards Lethal Intent took hold of two titles, the NLCW Tag Championship and the Television championship, which Jackhammer won. Prophet Had one loss, to Issac Reynolds, following When Worlds Collide, but his winning ways have gotten him to the NLCW Hardcore Championship. Prophet won the Hardcore Title from Al Thadius and after four of the best of five matches, Al has regained the belt Prophet took from him. He and Hammer lost their tag titles, and Prophet has since sent in his resignation papers. For now, he is set to take a few weeks to himself, before deciding the next place he is to go.
NCW and the God of Xtreme
On January 27, 2008 Prophet made his debut in NCW. Though he didn't have his first match that night, he made an impact by proclaiming he was the TRUE God of Xtreme and Spike Kane, then NCW Champion, was just an impostor. Prophet then went on a cycle of annihilation after annihilation of the roster. None could defeat him, until after he earned the #1 Contendership for the Xtreme Title. Sexy Jason, afraid that he'd lose his title to Prophet, began to interfere in his matches, giving him his first NCW defeat. The feud between the two escalated with two more matches. One involved Prophet going to a No-Contest in a non-title Xtreme Rules match where Jason was annihilated and could not go on. The next week there was a Fatal Four Way with Jason, Falcon, JFK and Prophet. Prophet easily pulled out the victory, using his size to decimate Jason one more time before their meeting at the Pay Per View "A Night to Remember" in a 3-Way Xtreme Ladder Match. Prophet went in to "A Night to Remember" saying he'd be the only one left walking after the match, and his prediction ultimately became truth when he speared the ladder, casting his two other opponents, with their hands on the title, far to the outside of the ring. After Claiming the title, he was informed that earlier in that night, JackHammer, his former Tag Partner in NLCW, was the #1 Contender. They faced the next two weeks consecutively, once in a 6-man tag where Prophet let the other members of his team get slaughtered, and a One-on-One where Prophet got disqualified putting Hammer through a table. Their match at the next Pay Per View, Reborn, is set to be a Barbed-Wire Rope Last Man Standing match.
Over the period up to this point, Prophet had been having hallucinations and nightmares. His mental state had deteriorated to the point where his psychiatrist dropped him and left Prophet without medication, and without hope of a fix to this problem. He made a call to his protege, Fate, who came with bottle upon bottle of the prescription Prophet had been taking. Where Fate got the drugs, no one knows, but Fate began to escort Prophet to the ring, who has been needing to be put in a straight jacket before every match. The insane one, the Dark One, and the True God of Xtreme; Prophet descends on a downward spiral and where it goes, only time will tell.
Injury and Retiring for Good
In his match against Kole Kaos at nCw's "Last Stand" Pay Per View at the end of July in 2008, he broke his back and also other bones in the third and final Asylum match. He quickly retired...without fanfare, and faded off into obscurity once again, never to set foot in a ring ever again.
