BIOGRAPHY

El Phantasmo started his career in Canada before growing in notoriety in the UK. Phantasmo engaged in a friendly rivalry with Will Ospreay in Britain, which led many to assume that he would eventually make his Japanese debut as part of CHAOS. However, it was Bullet Club that recruited the ‘Headbanga’, and Phantasmo made his debut at Dontaku 2019, instantly making a statement by laying out Ospreay with the CRII. 

Phantasmo went on to win the Super J-Cup on his first attempt in 2019, a feat he would repeat in 2020. Combining this singles success with three IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship reigns, ELP proved to be as talented as he is onoxious, though his talents were aided with a special assist. 

At Wrestle Kingdom 16, after months of speculation and claims without concrete evidence, it was revealed thet Phantasmo’s knockout superkick, Sudden Death, was aided with a metal plate in his boot. The furiosu Phantasmo was determined to remind the world in 2022 he is every bit as dangerous even without a loaded boot.
