An insurgent rockstar luchador who never forgot the injustice and poverty he came from, A.J. Morales has consistently been one of the most popular and impactful players on the Mainstream/Seattle Pro roster since the day he arrived. After making 2017 his breakout year over in XWA, where he played an instrumental role in saving the company from the tyrannical Survivors and retired the infamous Diamond Jack Sabbath, the Revolution made a surprise entry into the 2018 Pinnacle Battle Royale, where his strong showing secured him a spot in the company. Morales proved a strong contender from the jump, receiving shots at multiple belts in his first few months, but it wasn't until he won the Summer 2018 Pride Grand Prix--a tournament Morales himself named via Twitter suggestion--that he set himself up to finally dethrone AJ Knight for the United States Championship (then known as the Pride Championship) at the KeyArena in late June 2018. After making two defenses, reaching the semifinals of the Emerald City Classic, and hosting his very own all-Falls Count Anywhere event, Hard Rock Is Dead, Morales unexpectedly dropped the title at Mainstream 13 in Tokyo to Bryan Blaze. However, A.J. quickly rebounded at Conflict: Brooklyn, becoming the first two-time United States Champion in history and racking up five more defenses, including three in the same week--a feat that no doubt contributed to his winning the Most Popular Wrestler award for 2018. But even that run of dominance came to an end at Mainstream 16: 2 Year Anniversary, where Billy Danielson finally completed his Mainstream Grand Slam after multiple previous attempts by defeating Morales for the belt.
With expectations high for 2019, Morales soon linked up with Christina Idol, his first and closest friend in the Mainstream locker room, and at Mainstream 19, they sent shockwaves through the company by defeating the long-dominant TrixTeam for the Tag Team Championships. During that reign, the belts became cross-promoted with NVR Wrestling--which, though it started as Seattle Pro's developmental brand, rose to equal prominence after Robb Daniels sold it off to Caleb Jackson, thanks in large part to Morales's 200-day, ten-defense run as the NVR World Champion, which began just a few weeks before he and Idol won the tag titles. At first, it seemed the two brands could co-exist peacefully, but as spring turned to summer, it turned out that Daniels wasn't happy about NVR's unexpected growth...
Mainstream 22 in Kansas City proved to be a crucial, painful chapter in Morales's history with the company. First, A.J. and Christina dropped their tag titles to the Tenacious Wrecking Crew--who, just a month prior in Atlanta, had jumped A.J. and triggered a brawl so chaotic it spilled into the parking lot and ended with five wrestlers in handcuffs. Then, his planned triple-threat with Mariano Fernandez and AJ Knight for the World Heavyweight Championship became a four-way at the last second, as surprise entrant SILK pinned Morales to take the title. And just to put the dagger in, Robb Daniels had deliberately let Morales and several other wrestlers' contracts expire right before the event. Morales initially pursued revenge on SILK through the Emerald City Classic while trying to negotiate for a new contract, but that failed on both fronts; not only did Morales get eliminated in the semifinals, he learned that he'd been dropped specifically for working with NVR, and that Robb wouldn't re-sign him unless he disavowed the rival company.
Naturally, this pushed Morales to NVR's side of the brand war, and he crashed Mainstream 26 to make his presence felt--but rather than open retaliation, Morales found himself personally invited to a battle royale at the following show in Knoxville for the vacant United States Championship. Morales took Daniels's seeming peace offering, and even made it to the final two, but Daniels then proceeded to come out and personally interfere in the match, ensuring that Chris Constantine Jr. got the belt instead. It seemed like Morales wouldn't even get the chance to avenge that move, as the Madison Square Garden showdown between Seattle Pro and NVR left Morales completely off the card, but after a backstage altercation left Jimmy Pagan injured, Morales filled his spot on Team NVR for the 5-on-5 tornado tag match between the two brands, and A.J. ultimately pinned Bryan Ford to ensure that NVR won not only the match, but the entire show.
With Seattle Pro defeated and rebranded as Mainstream Wrestling, Morales still wanted one thing before he officially considered his beef with Robb Daniels settled. It took some convincing, but he talked the company founder to a singles match at Mainstream 30: 3 Year Anniversary, and after a clean, sporting match on both men's part, Morales picked up the win and oublicly made peace with Daniels. Now, with 2020 on the horizon and a brand-new Mainstream contract, the Revolution hopes to finally win the World Heavyweight Championship and complete the Triple Crown he's been chasing for so long.
★ ENTRANCE THEME ★
"King of Amarillo" by Issues
★ ENTRANCE DESCRIPTION ★
"WRATH TO THE INDUSTRY!"
The opening breakdown of "King of Amarillo" by Issues hits the PA, getting a loud, immediate response of cheers from the crowd. The lighting near the entrance turns gold, vapor starts hissing out of the fog machines, and A.J. Morales's highlight reel starts to play on the 'Tron. The Revolution himself emerges from behind the curtain, headbanging along and playing air guitar. He keeps this up until the first verse comes in, at which point he starts walking to the ring and giving fist bumps and high-fives to anyone in the crowd who reaches towards him.
GRAHAM STEVENS: Making his way to the ring...from San Francisco, California, weighing in at 187 pounds...The Revolution! A! J! Moooooraleeeeees!
As the chorus hits, A.J. climbs onto the apron and vaults himself over the top rope with a somersault. He pops up to his feet and gives a clenched fist salute to the side of the crowd facing the entrance ramp. He repeats this salute on all four sides of the ring, ending with the side facing the hard cam. For this last one, he looks directly into the camera, and after he drops the salute, he mouths “Mírame” before turning to his corner, taking off his jacket and beanie, draping both objects over the ring post, and limbering up for the match.
