John "DR", (born August 23), better known as Lethal Consequences, is an American Professional Wrestler who has worked as a high-mid-carder and main eventer. Lethal Consequence is known for his somewhat impudent, witty, and mysterious attitude outside of shows and promotions and his intellectual and villain persona inside his wrestling promotions. However he is most likely recognized across the E-fed community for his associations and disputes with CM Banks, HRDO, Captain Charisma, Mister K, and accomplishments such as the EAW and Undisputed Hardcore Title in Extreme Answers Wrestling and his Tag Team and United States Title in Xtreme Wrestling Federation. Lethal Consequences has been a triple crown champion in two of his mainstream E-feds. Currently, Lethal Consequences is signed to Extreme Answers Wrestling under the brand Voltage.

Personal life

John was born in San Diego, California, staying a native to California moved to several other sites in the Golden State. His kin is consistent with his mother, Judy, and sister, Roberta; his father passed away from a skin cancer developed over a year to two year time span when he was in his younger years. Growing up without a father figure, he learned to handle matters into his own hands when he was growing up with less family members than most citizens.

Because of this, he tried to look for an outlet and became fascinated with fighting, MMA, and professional wrestling. Thus he started out looking for promotions, starting with indy and working his way up to trainers, and eventually to the E-feds he is in today. John is known for his controversial attitude outside of his workplace. He has had more than one, to say the least, encounters with his superiors and co-workers, but has managed to make that into a positive, using it as his inspiration and amusement. He has always been the innovative type in his workplace and out of it. Having relationships with some upper-workmen, he has suggested his ideas and eventually they were used one way or another. Also, he has incorporated his skill into his actual job in wrestling, making his own moves, catchphrases, nicknames and more. "DR" was also the creator of "EAW: Backstage," a animated sports review panel for EAW, which is in the works of contract disputes with himself and his workplace. In real life, John is looking to pursue a career in the psychology field after his years in school.

Early E-fed Experiences

International Championship Wrestling and Indy Feds

In his current E-feds, his fellow E-fedders have always thought his first E-fed was EAW. However, his mind either blanked, or he just did not the tell them. One day when he was looking for CAWs, for some unknown reason, the site had just gone under a makeover. At the front page, their E-federation was jumping out at Lethal Consequences.

From there, he entered what was his first E-fed experience. This E-fed, however, was very different from the ones he would be accustomed to later on in his career. In ICW, you were a WWE, WWF, ECW, whatever superstar you wanted, but you must first "audition" for it. Although they had scripts, and peopled promoed for them, it was a very different atmosphere. The promos were very realistic, almost full fledged role-play. The promos were a little longer than scripts in his later E-feds, and in a lot more detail. So he decided to go in blindly, and try out with Batista. He started writing what would be a script for E-feds now, but would eventually never get it. He later tried another low-key E-fed similar to ICW, and won the World Title and the Intercontinental title under Steve Austin. After realizing that those weren't for him he stopped from his E-fed experience, but his early E-feds this would set him up for his E-fed careers later by a long shot.

Yahoo! Answers introduction into E-feds

For quite some time Lethal Consequences was a popular user on Y!A. He was in a few categories, but Wrestling was his definite home. He had also gone through some identity changes, but was known best under the name "The Chosen One," and was known for his signature "The Chosen One," also.

It even got to a point where he was a top contributor in wrestling, without him even trying to. Now, LC can be recognized as MOTM (Man On The Moon) on Answers. But that all stopped when he re-discovered E-federations. At this point, he had forgotten all about the industry, until one of his E-fed's main superstar, at the time, Masters, asked a question that would change the face of E-feds forever. It all started with the phrase, "What would happen if Batista got shot..." Of course like any good promoter does, he gives the link to his E-fed in the question. This link would create what is now a top superstar in E-feds.

LC bursted through the doors of EAW and was immediately pleased. The outstanding graphics, the original names and titles, the extremists. And on August 23, 2008, LC signed himself a contract with EAW. But Lethal Consequences wasn't Lethal Consequences yet. LC signed under the name "John Rufio." After looking around, he knew he needed a better name. He needed inspiration; he needed ideas. So he went to TNA's roster.

And he found two names; Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed. TNA took the name from him, undoubtedly. LC was born. Lethal Consequences used Attitude Era Steve Austin as his gimmick and picture base, and used his two original finishers were Lockdown and Blackout, one of which still used today. Once into the locker room, LC was immediately recognized. He used a very grammar-oriented speech that others didn't use. LC started his promos with a semi-original style; he based it on RP and a heelish attitude. His promos caught the attention the attention of the chairman, CM Ronn. Ronn quickly took a liking to LC and made him stand out from the era of newly signed up extremists, most still in EAW today. LC had a full head of steam going into his first match and Free-Per-View (FPV), Midsummer Massacre. LC was scheduled for a Debut Battle Royal with a few other superstars that are still around today.

The new superstars quickly made a name for themselves with a promo war between the various competitors, some making stronger impacts than others such as Mister K, Irish Assassin, and Kira. When MSM rolled around, the match before the debut battle royal was an Extreme Rulez match between, then rivals, HRDO and CM Ronn. As the match started to wind down, the referee planted a chair shot to HRDO... the referee was Lethal Consequences. CM Ronn and LC had just cemented their association as LC set up Ronn to light HRDO on fire, and win the match. Although LC was the last two in the battle royal, he was defeated by Mister K. However, this turned out to be a plus, as rocketed up in the ranks before any of his fellow debut extremists. After LC debuted at MSM CM Banks, CM Ronn and also Chairman at the time, put the title of his protege upon him. LC shadowed behind Ronn almost every move he made. When the Chairman was making an announcement it would always be with LC; when Ronn was in a match it would be with LC. The little protege, mentor deal turned into a tag team with Lethal Consequences and Ronn. At that time in 2008 the dominant force in tag teams were Starrpact which contained Starrstan, who LC would run into later in his career, and Impact, his later affiliate in Generation Genesis. They were the reigning EAW Tag Team Champions; Jaywalker and Johnny Bad Boy were the top contenders for the title. CM Ronn and LC were the face of heel in that time and showed it. Ronn used his powers as chairman and screwed JBB and Jay out of their spot in the title match on Dynasty. Instead the team of LC and Ronn faced Starrpact two on two on Dynasty for the EAW Tag Team Titles. At the end of the night LC and Ronn beat two of the best there was in EAW, walking away EAW Tag Team Champions, and giving LC his first taste of gold. Ronn and LC held it for quite some time until The Backstabbers and them battled it out on an edition of Dynasty one night. The Backstabbers were a long shot at winning the title, and it showed in the match. The deciding factor is when Mickey Masterson and Ronn were in the ring towards the end of the match. Lethal Consequences was fed up for quite sometime, and it all blew up that night. LC left the corner of Ronn and exited the arena, leaving Ronn helpless to a submission, losing the titles. Although it broke a connection that was very valuable, it helped LC's career. It melted him from a binding with a partner, and boosted him to a single's career at another location.


LC was in the first two and only two EAW Video Games,(08 and 09) SDvD, alongside his other EAW Extremists. And EAW announced that on September 9, 2009 the first-ever Lethal Consequences DVD will be released in a four disk set including his best EAW matches and moments, a lengthy and candid interview on his life, career and EAW Wrestling, rare photos, and guest commentary, among others.
