Other Information: Marvel Marcus is gaining a national profile since starring in BBC Three’s Step Into The Ring documentary – available to watch on iPlayer. No opponent that squares off with the all-energy Marvel can pose half the challenges that he’s already overcome. Marcus is autistic, and before he discovered wrestling his condition caused frequent bouts of rage and anxiety. He’s learned to channel those feelings to fuel the strength, speed and fortitude he brings to his bouts in the ring.
His Moonsaults are the stuff of legend, and his Marvel Snapper is a stunner that can level opponents twice his size. Marcus has tasted gold regularly: he’s been WAW Academy Champion and WAW Academy Tag Team Champion alongside fellow Ranger, his best friend Brandon Innes – but his crowning achievement so far has been winning the WAW World Light Heavyweight Championship, earning himself a spot on the WAW Elite roster in the process.
