Aries (Daniel Solwold Jr.) is born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He develops an early interest in professional wrestling through watching the NWA.
The influences I had growing up I think comes out in the way I perform and maybe that’s what helps set me apart from some of the guys who grew up watching different types of wrestling. I appreciated all of it, but what originally caught my attention was that dirty wrasslin’ with those real characters and blood and Dick Murdoch and Buzz Saywer. That was the stuff that really grabbed me as a kid and really fell in love with.
