Shawn Archer is a Canadian Professional Wrestler, currently operating within the Armbar Error Society, where he is signed to Revolution X.


Independent circuit

Following a successful bodybuilding career, Archer made his professional wrestling debut in 2010 alongside his brother, Alex, with whom he had trained at Toronto Takedown Training. In spite of his power, physique and raw potential, he failed to grasp any sort of success during this time, and when his brother decided to leave Canada and train in Japan halfway through 2012, he chose to join him.

While training at the Zettai Elite Dojo, Archer improved greatly, but found himself unwilling to deal with the restrictions placed upon him as a young lion. This came to a head on his 24th birthday, where he reportedly had a heated argument with his brother, following which he packed his bags and once again relocated, this time to America.

Upon arriving in America, Archer would experience significantly more success than he had in Canada, wrestling while also training at the California Cravate Camp. In May of 2015, he won his first championship, the Big Time Hollywood Wrestling Championship, winning it from Max Plantagenet. He would later lose the championship to Levin Thackeray in July, but not before winning the Northern armdrag Champions league Television Championship a mere two days prior from fellow former bodybuilder, Burt Anthony.

Archer would go on to hold the NaCl TV title for more than a full year after winning it, often retaining via countout or disqualification and frequently cheating to win. During this time, he had a lengthy feud with Rick Trent, wherein Trent over time began using Archer's tactics out of desparation. When eventually he did lose it to Richard Franco in September of 2016, it was in a hardcore match, with the added stipulation that the loser would leave NaCl. Following this, he would continue to appear in the promotion under a mask as Máscara del Hardbody, but would be unmasked by Carl Moreno in January and forced to leave for good.

Revolution X (2017-present)

On February 13, 2017, Archer announced that he had signed to Riku Otonashi and Travis Cassidy's new promotion, Revolution X with the statement, "This is MY revolution". On March 30, 2017, he made his AES debut on Revolution X Episode 1, facing off against CFPW alumni, Ricky D'Amore, which he won following interference by Conga.

Personal Life

Archer was born and raised in Surrey, Ontario, Canada alongside his brother, Alex Archer, who is one year his junior, and to whom he has been estranged since 2014. Prior to wrestling, Archer was a professional bodybuilder. However, his accomplishments were limited due to his insistence on maintaining what he referred to as "the perfect ratio".

Archer is known for being incredibly vain and self-centered, insisting any time he is being interviewed or on camera that he is perfection. In spite of this, or perhaps because of it, he doesn't seem to care what anyone else thinks of him.

Archer was confirmed to have been in a relationship with investigative journalist and reporter, Donna Mullins, in 2015, however they have since split amicably.
