(WWE's Seth Rollins)
Marek Brave is an independent professional wrestler based out of Davenport, Iowa.
Beginning his career in Davenport with Scott County Wrestling, Marek was officially trained in 2004, alongside Seth Rollins, by Danny Daniels in Berwyn, Illinois. Quickly forming the tag-team The Black & The Brave, Marek and Seth (formerly known as Tyler Black) traveled across the Midwest in order to build their professional wrestling skills. Known for his long hair and high flying technique, Marek became a favorite with many fans in companies such as AAW, IWA-MidSouth, NWA Midwest, and various others throughout the country. However, in the summer of 2007, while wrestling in a Ring of Honor tryout match for FIP in Melbourne, Florida, Marek was nearly paralyzed after he was dropped directly on his head following a botched maneuver. After working a lighter schedule until late 2009, Marek was forced to take some time off to properly heal his injuries.
After a two year hiatus, Marek returned to professional wrestling and quickly picked up where he left off. Now wrestling nearly every weekend, Marek has once again regained the support of professional wrestling fans who have followed his ten year career.
With The Black & The Brave Wrestling Academy, Marek gets to combine two of his greatest passions; wrestling and teaching. He looks forward to instructing a new generation of professional wrestling superstars!
