Steve Blades comes to the ring dressed in black wrestling tights with "The Razor" written in silver down the left leg, silver knee pads, black wrestling boots, and his wrists wrapped in silver tape.

on the back. He removes the shirt once it's time for action. Steve is a very well built man, standing nearly 6'5'' with his boots on. "The Razor" has an excellent shaped chest showing rippling pecs, rockhard abs, and a set of arms you could crack walnuts with.

Steve Blades was in born in Atlanta, GA on July 23,
1972. The son of an Atlanta City police officer, Steve was brought up in the
strictest of households. After graduating from high school, "The Razor"
joined the U.S. Air Force, where he was a member of the Combat Control Unit
and a Fighter Weapons troop. Steve left the Air Force after 4 years to join
up with the police department in Washington D.C. Life went well for Mr.
Blades in the Washington police department, having earned several
commendations for Valor, outstanding achievement, and a promotion to the rank
of Sergeant in 4 years, until his partner was killed in a gun fight with a
group of fugitives on the run from the police. "The Razor", not wanting to
see another one of his friends killed in such a gruesome manner again, left
the Washington police and returned to Atlanta to put his life back together.
While at peace living in Atlanta, Steve still wanted some action in his life.
Steve had always been a big fan of professional wrestling since he was a
kid, wanting to be the heavyweight champion of the world. After hearing the
stories of his Uncle being in professional wrestling, Steve set out to live
up to his dream. He entered the world of professional wrestling in the Fans
Wrestling Federation, under the name of "B-Onez", finding it difficult to win
matches thanks to corrupt leadership of the federation. "The Razor" moved to
the Cyber Wrestling Organization and Georgia Regional Wrestling, also under
the name "B-Onez", where he found some moderate success thanks to clean
leadership. Then times got a little tough for the man once known as
"B-Onez", having little time to compete and no success in the Seattle
Wrestling Federation and Golden State Wrestling, "The Razor" decided it was
time for a change. Steve Blades decided that the "B-Onez" character was not
catching on with the fans, so a new name was in order. Steve came up with
"The Razor" nickname due to the smoothness and the fact that it seemed to
attract attention from the fans. He went to Georgia Championship Wrestling
as a tag-team with his partner and friend Duke Halley, but after only one
match Duke was injured in a car accident and the tag-team was no more. After
the end of his tag-team alliance with Halley, "The Razor" heard that Georgia
Regional Wrestling had once again re-opened its doors and Steve knew that GRW
was the place to be. "The Razor" found the GRW to be an instant success
winning his first wrestling title in the form of the Atlanta City
Championship. However the GRW once again closed its doors and Steve Blades
was out of wrestling. With the closing of the GRW, "The Razor" made an
attempt to return to the squared circle by heading to Bluegrass Wrestling;
but "The Razor" felt tired and worn out from his days in the ring and decided
to retire in early 2000. His retirement took "The Razor" to Cold Lake,
Canada, where Steve was able to relax and enjoy his new life fishing and
spending time with his girlfriend, Katherine. "The Razor's" retirement time
in Canada was short spent however, when Katherine was killed in a freak
boating accident. Saddened and alone, Steve felt it best to leave Cold Lake,
return to the States and settle down in Phoenix, AZ until he could clear his
mind. Through the next year, Blades had a difficult time overcoming the
death of his beloved girlfriend, but after a short fight with alcoholism and
endless empty days of solitude Steve finally manage to come to his senses
with the help of an old friend by the name of Duke Halley. Halley made "The
Razor" realize that Katherine's death, while an unfortunate accident,
shouldn't keep Steve from moving on forward. "The Razor" having finally
overcome his internal emotions of Katherine sets his sights on returning to
the form he had when the GRW closed. Blades trained in the Arizona desert
with Halley for a year and a half improving his strength and coordination and
focusing his mind once again on returning to wrestling. In late July 2001,
"The Razor" was working out in his favorite gym in downtown Phoenix when he
noticed a message on the bulletin board announcing the return of the GRW.
Blades decided that this was his chance to return to the ring and the
profession he left behind 2 years ago. The former Atlanta City champion is
ready to take on all comers, clear-headed and focused, and this time no one
will stand in his way.
