Leith Goodwin is an American professional wrestler currently working the independent circuit under the stage name "Sick" Nick Moretti. He is best known for his work in DIVISION Wrestling, World Wrestling Headquarters under the Sanatorium brand and for SCUM Underground, where he still works to this day.

Early life:

Leith Goodwin grew up admiring professional wrestling and decided at a young age it was all he wanted to do. He would wrestle in the backyard with some of his school friends on a flimsy trampoline or on his bed mattress they pulled into the backyard. They would record these "matches" and put them on YouTube, the channel has since been closed. He would drop out of high school in 2013 to start persueing wrestling as an occupation where he would start getting training at The Doghouse, ran by Rex Muldoon.

He would work primarily for Doghouse ran events in the gym. He would voluntarily wrestle in deathmatches seeing as they would pay more and he was living in the back of his car after his mother kicked him out of home for not completing his schooling. Due to deathmatch wrestling still having a stigma in the views of traditionalist wrestling fans and promoters, he was quickly shunned from serious promotions. He channelled his displeasure into the character of "Sick" Nick Moretti, actively opposing traditionalists of wrestling and worked deathmatches primarily.

On October 13th, Moretti would purposely walk out on Mr Jinx in a tag team match against Diamond Dogs (Dash and Gina Van Zant). This would be his last match for the promotion, not using his #1 contendership for the Demolition Championship, later stating in a web interview he wasn't happy with his creative direction within the company.

Moretti made a surprise debut for SCUM Underground at their EVOLUTION! event on September 11th, 2019 attacking Michael Hayden and Izzy Van Doren during their match, verbally chastising them for being wannabe scumbags latching onto a trend. The following show known as Body Count on September 26th, he defeated Izzy Van Doren. On October 31st at Burned Out, Nick Moretti defeated Maverick swiftly. Following the match he would send a message to the SCUM locker room by putting Maverick through a large sheet of plywood with light tubes taped down across the entire sheet with an Ego Death.
