Bio:

A graduate of the KPW "Wild 4 Wrestling" school, The Technician comes from a very impressive athletic background, having eight years experience in amateur wrestling, eighteen months of Brazilian jiu-jitsu and one year of Muay Thai kickboxing already under his belt.

Having trained with Olympic-level wrestlers in the USA, The Technician has represented New Zealand overseas at a Commonwealth level in both the USA and Australia.  He has wrestled up and down New Zealand in amateur tournaments, having competed in over 200 amateur contests.  The Technician was also a double medal-winner at the Oceania Wrestling Championships in February 2008.

Though his first love was amateur wrestling, the Techncian was impressed from a young age by the athleticism of Bret Hart and the showmanship of Shawn Michaels, and so was always interested in professional wrestling.  When given the chance, the Technician entered the KPW "Wild 4 Wrestling" training school, where his strong amateur wrestling background enabled him to quickly establish himself as a force to be reckoned with.

Making his triumphant debut in his home town at River City Rumble in 2008, The Technician quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with.  However, things turned sour following a losing streak where his opponents cheated to snatch victory from him.  After one such loss to Jonnie Juice, The Technician snapped and turned his back on the fans.  Frustrated at not being able to get ahead, he accepted Kade Morgan's offer to team up and enter the KPW Tag Team title tournament.

Enjoying a bye into the finals of the tournament, the Renegades managed to beat the team of "Powerhouse" Jade Diamond and Whetu to win the vacant KPW Tag Team Championship in May 2009.  Seeing that his change of attitude had borne fruit, The Technician fully embraced his rule-breaking, arrogant ways, becoming a true force in KPW.

Feud with Whetu, the Maori Warrior

Though Jade Diamond and Whetu went their separate ways, with Jade Diamond plying his wrestling wares in Australia, Whetu doggedly pursued his enmity with the Technician.  Every inch the equal opponent to the Technician in terms of high-flying and risk-taking, the Technician was able to use his cunning and cheating ways to stay one step ahead of the Maori Warrior and twist the situation to his advantage. For example, at "Bays Wrestlefest" in January 2012, Whetu had the Technician beat; however, the Technician managed to retain his KPW Championship via disqualification after tricking the referee into thinking that Whetu had struck the champ with the KPW Championship belt.  For example, at "Bays Wrestlefest" in January 2012, Whetu had the Technician beat; however, the Technician managed to retain his KPW Championship via disqualification after tricking the referee into thinking that Whetu had struck the champ with the KPW Championship belt.

Feeling he was in complete control of the situation, the Technician baited his persistent foe into what the Technician believed was a no-win situation for Whetu - putting up his precious long hair as "collateral", the Technician enticed Whetu into putting up his very career in a "Hair versus Career" match.    At KPW "Mayhem" in May 2012, the Technician attempted to unleash his masterplan: all he had to do was win just one more match against Whetu and the Maori Warrior would be out of his hair for good.  With the KPW Championship not on the line, it looked as if the Technician had nothing to loose.

However, Whetu fought the match of his life and managed to beat his long-time foe.  To his horror, the Technician lost his hair.  Embittered, the Technician faced Whetu at "Halloween Howl 6" in October 2012 with the KPW Championship on the line.  To the delight of the fans, Whetu continued his winning ways and pinned the Technician to win the KPW Championship. 

"The Shooter" and second KPW Championship

Reinventing himself as "the Shooter", Sinclair then re-established himself in KPW as a formidable adversary.  In October 2013, Whetu was forced to vacate the KPW Championship; he was not able to fulfill his contractual obligations to defend the championship due to outside commitments.  Apparently falling under the sway of "demonised" KPW CEO Rip Morgan, Sinclair beat "the Standard Hero" Graham Hughes with Rip Morgan's assistance to claim the vacant KPW Championship and begin his second reign as KPW Championship reign in controversy.
