Blake “Bulletproof” Troop will be making his professional wrestling debut at the October 2, 2021 United Wrestling Network tapings in Commerce, CA. Troop is a world-class catch wrestler and MMA fighter with a professional MMA record of 8-6, with seven wins coming by knockout.
An accomplished wrestler and fighter with a 100% first-round finishing rate, Troop was involved in one of the most memorable fights in CXF history in 2016 when he fought Mosses Murrieta at CXF 5. In that fight, a bloodied Troop was caught in a triangle choke during the 3rd round. Despite blood pouring from his face and being placed in a choke, Troop continued to battle until Murrieta finally put him to sleep.
In February, Troop competed for the vacant Snake Pit Catch Wrestling World Heavyweight title, making it to the finals, where current world champion Travis Weiff pinned him.
Troop has been doing commentary for Championship Wrestling from Hollywood over the past year and a half, while at the same time, he has been training to become a professional wrestler. Troop moved to Florida to focus fully on professional wrestling in December and began training with Chris Silvio and Matt Sydal. He has also done training with Brain Kendrick, Peter Avalon, and the Santino Bros. Wrestling Academy.
Thunder Rosa has credited Troop with teaching her the Peruvian Necktie that she has been using as her submission finisher in AEW.
Troop has been described as a very innovative grappler that blends shoot techniques and concepts with pro wrestling storytelling.
