History

Early Life

Daniel Joseph was born to Jose Joseph and Mary James on March 3, 1986. At five years old, he started training for pro wrestling. He was the toughest in his school, and he was great in nearly every sport. He decided to take up the family buisness of pro wrestling.

Pro Wrestling

Independants

At March 2, 2004, Daniel made his unofficial debut. He started out wrestling down in Tijuana as The Masked Millionaire Jr. He was treated like a comedy character, and jobbed out. He then recieved a mega-push, and held the and was ending up beating everybody, he was an avid main eventer, even though there were no titles. He ended up losing a Mask vs. Mask match to Flash Rodriguiz. He was requested to change his name to Jose 2005, but he walked out on the promotion to head to the States.

On Febuary 14, 2005, he signed on with the Pro Wrestling Mayhem promotion (fake) on their St. Valentine's Day Fight card as Mr. Tricky. He faced Rick Reckless, which he won. He faced the Canadian Dragon for the PWM Jr. Heavyweight Championship, he won the match, and a month later unified the championship with the PWM World Heavyweight Championship. He doesn't recognize his title reigns or his run with the PWM promotion.

In June 2006, Daniel signed with N.E.W. as DJ, which he won the NEW Internet Championship in his first match. He was scheduled to face the World Champion in a Title vs. Title match, but the company folded.

E-Fed Role Playing Wrestling

On July 14, 2006, he entered ERPW as DJ, and in his first match, he faced "Jeff Hardy" and "Batista" for the ERPW Steel Championship. In a losing effort, Daniel pulled himself together, and brought his best friend, Jamal Jamison into the ERPW where they formed Tha Pimps, Daniel's only real tag team. They won the ERPW Tag Team Championships twice. They were the last ERPW Tag Team Champions as well.

Icon Championship Wrestling

On July 15, 2006, he entered ICW once again as DJ. He challenged the ICW Continental Champion, Brain Damage to a Hell in a Cell match for the title in his debut at the upcoming Pay-Per-View, GTS. He won the championship in his debut, and became the youngest ICW Continental Champion ever. His ICW career hit rock bottom, he kept losing matches left and right, some think it's because he opened IFW, his luck turned around at Apocolypse, where he won a match to earn a shot at the ICW Continental Championship later on that night. He then defeated the ICW Continental Champion, Snake to become a two-time ICW Continental Champion. He lost the title the next month, but he turned heads two pay-per-views later when he beat then ICW World Heavyweight Champion, The Demon and Rocky to win the ICW Survival Championship, a title that Jamal Jamison became the first champion of. ICW later closed when DJ lost the ICW Survival Championship.

International Wrestling Federation/Hard Core Wrestling

Daniel founded the IFW promotion in November of 2006. His good friend, Goldberg founded the HCW. He won many titles in both, where he won all of his five World Titles. When they seperated, they both closed.

Icon Championship Wrestling (2nd Run)

Daniel signed with ICW once again, he ended up turning on the fans and said he was "sick of being called a wannabe". The Icon (ICW Owner) said that Daniel was in line for a push. He had one match in his 2nd run, which he was victorious. ICW closed, and Daniel cut ties with anyone there.

Pro Wrestling Honor

Daniel signed on with PWH in early 2007 as DJ. He kept the white rapper gimmick. Daniel had a few matches in PWH, where he was victorious more times than losses. He was then recruited by multi-time World Champion, John Pariah into Pro Wrestling X. He also won a World Tag Team Titles with Jason Aries and Zack Lowery in this run.

Pro Wrestling X

Daniel signed with PWX as DJ, and ran down. He was tired, and ended up the laughing stock of the federation. He was scheduled for a title match against Darin Zion for the PWX Hybrid Championship, and ended up being pulled out by Tyler Boyd as it "was not the right move for the federation". Daniel was not very happy with this decision and walked up to Tyler Boyd demanding an answer (which turned into a mini-feud later). Daniel ended up having his last great match against Boyd, which gained him a little respect around the locker room. Due to continuous no-shows, Daniel was cut from PWX.

Pro Wrestling Honor (2nd Run)

PWH opened once again, and Daniel wanted to be booked as himself, but the owner asked him to be DJ again, which Daniel accepted. Daniel ended up in the hunt for the PWH World Championship, which Daniel did not succeed in. Once again, due to constant no-shows, Daniel left PWH.

High Impact Wrestling Federation

Daniel joined HiWF as himself in April 2008 (questioned date). He immediatly challenged the World Champion, Brandon Thornton to a match, which gained him a lot of heat in the HiWF locker room. The people in charge booked him in matches against main eventers, where Daniel was jobbed in. At one point, an opponent brought in a granny to pin Daniel. Humiliated, Daniel brought himself together, and won a couple matches. He got his wish to face Thornton, but he did not capitalize. Daniel started his alter-ego, Danny Legend in this tenure. Daniel left HiWF due to the company folding.

Alchohalism and Rehabilitation

In his tenure with HiWF, Daniel started to drink...hard. He almost commited suicide by alchohal poisoning.

Daniel rehabilitated himself, and has stopped drinking on a daily basis, whether he has started again is unknown at this point.

Pro Wrestling X (2nd Run)

Daniel rejoined PWX when HiWF folded, but after one match, he left.

Pro Wrestling Honor (3rd Run)

Daniel signed onto PWH for the 3rd time in December 2008 as Danny Legend. PWH only lasted two shows, one loss, as one episode of Honor-Wire didn't even air.

Semi-Retirement

Daniel semi-retired in January 2009. But stated that if the fans wanted it, he would come back full time. As he is not fully retired, he said that the full retirement may be coming in January to March 2010.

True Wrestling Honor

On March 13, 2009, Daniel signed on with True Wrestling Honor as an occasional wrestler along with his siblings Adam and Shelly Joseph. He was used as a manager/bodyguard type figure to his brother Adam. On March 25, 2009, Daniel answered Anthony Bloodbath's challenge. The challenge-answering segment was be aired on March 30, 2009's edition of THW Wrestling Showcase. Daniel officially returned to active pro wrestling when he and his brother Adam faced the team of Miranda Rivers and Samantha Love on May 4, 2009. After the match, Daniel turned on his brother, signifying he came to THW to be a star, not a lackey. Adam was in contract negotiations with THW and officially left THW on May 5, 2009.

Daniel's match with Anthony Bloodbath finally happened at THW's 2nd Pay-Per-View event, Heaven Sent. It was a barbed-wire steel cage match. Bloodbath did his finisher wrong and ended up breaking Daniel's neck, putting Daniel's future in jeapordy. Daniel was released from True Honor Wrestling in June 2009. However, it was later noted after Daniel's release that Dan's injury wasn't actually that bad. He minorally tapped his spinal cord out of place.

Free Agency

Daniel spoke on his website that he will be ready to wrestle come July 2009. With Daniel's third year of wrestling coming on July 14, 2009, many of Daniel's friends say July will be the month of Daniel Joseph. Daniel had got contract offers from What The Federation (now known as CRUXSyndicated) and National Championship Wrestling.

National Championship Wrestling

Late August 1, 2009, Daniel stepped out of National Championship Wrestling Headquarters an employed man. Daniel will wrestle with NCW as Daniel Joseph on a bi-weekly schedule. Daniel made his NCW debut on the opening of an episode of Vengeance, defeating Jameon Jaxon. After a poor performance in a battle royal however, Daniel has faltered down the card. His third match at Summerbash is a scheduled six-man tag team match.

Mixed Martial Arts

Training

Daniel secretly began training for a MMA career in December 2008. Daniel said it may be July or sooner before he steps to go fight in Mixed Martial Arts. Daniel said he is officially retiring from pro wrestling the day he gets signed to compete in MMA.

Daniel has said to have put MMA on hold until he finally wins his sixth World Title.

Personal Life

Daniel is currently living in Phoenix, Arizona and is married to former CZW wrestler, Stephanie Sexton, who he married in June 2009. At the wedding when asked about children, Daniel laughed and said "I'm not my brother, I'm going to wait a year or two". After hearing that comment, his brother Adam is said to be furious with his brother.

Daniel has a family history of wrestling. His father, Jose, wrestled in Tijuana and Honduras as The Masked Millionaire. His mother, Mary, was a ring girl for the promotion that his father worked for when they came to the United States. His younger brother, Adam, is a nationally known independent star still looking to make it to the big leagues. Adam is currently out for a month with a broken rib cage, however, his employer (Fearless Championship Wrestling)'s status is unknown at this point. Daniel's younger sister, Shelly, now known worldwide as Mariah Ortega is currently employed by True Honor Wrestling. Shelly started out as the conceited valet of the Josephs. When her brothers got released, she became Mariah Ortega, the Assistant General Manager of Showcase. However, due to lack of creative ideas for Mariah, rumors are heavily swirling that Mariah will leave her position as the AGM, and once again become a manager.
