• The A-B-Yss of Abyss

TNA wrestler Joseph Park discussed (in character) his brother, the extremely hardcore Monster Abyss.

Some, like TNA wrestler Eric Young, believe Joseph Park and Abyss are one in the same.

The 6-foot-8, 360-pound wrestler Abyss played football in high school and college in Ohio, where he earned a master’s degree in sports administration from Ohio University. Quite diverse, he holds a barbed wire 2x4 in one hand and a master’s degree in the other.

He was trained by Roger Ruffin with the Northern Wrestling Federation, wrestling the indies including NWF and NWA Wildside. His career began to take off when he worked for the IWA in Puerto Rico and then TNA.

A TNA original, he’s won the NWA World title, NWA tag titles, TNA TV title and TNA X Division title,

He also worked for AAA in Mexico and Ring of Honor. The 40-year-old has a good mind for the business, enjoying what he does as well as enjoying helping others.
