Charles "Charlie" Doyle Haas II[3] (born March 27, 1972)[3] is an American professional wrestler and former amateur wrestler best known for his time in World Wrestling Entertainment.[2]

Haas was an amateur wrestler in high school, and attended Seton Hall University on a wrestling scholarship, before becoming a stockbroker. He became a professional wrestler in 1996, and teamed regularly with his brother, Russ, with the two winning numerous championships on the independent circuit, including the CZW World Tag Team Championship and the JAPW Tag Team Championship. After signing contracts with WWE, The Haas Brothers were assigned to WWE's developmental territories, where they won the MCW Southern Tag Team Championship on three occasions. After Russ' death in 2001 due to a heart attack, Haas began wrestling in singles competition, winning the HWA Heavyweight Championship once.

Haas formed a team with Shelton Benjamin and the two debuted on SmackDown in December 2002. They won the WWE Tag Team Championship twice, and dubbed themselves The World's Greatest Tag Team before they split in 2004. Haas won the WWE Tag Team Championship once more with Rico, and gained Miss Jackie as a valet. Haas then transferred into singles competition before being released from WWE in 2005. After a short stint in Jersey All Pro Wrestling and other independent promotions, Haas was re-signed to WWE in April 2006. He formed a short-lived team with Viscera, before reforming the World's Greatest Tag Team with Benjamin. After Benjamin transferred to the ECW brand, Haas began wrestling with a comical luchador persona, before developing a character where he imitated other wrestlers and WWE Hall of Famers.

Aside from wrestling, Haas and his wife Jackie, his former valet, run a nutritional store, Custom Muscle Nutrition and Smoothie Shop, in Frisco, Texas, which they opened in October 2008.

Professional wrestling career

Independent circuit (1996–2002)

After debuting in 1996 as a professional wrestler, Haas regularly teamed with his brother Russ for numerous independent promotions.[1] On July 22, 1998, The Haas Brothers won the Jersey All Pro Wrestling Tag Team Championship by defeating The Skin Head Express.[4] They lost it to The Nation of Immigration just over a month later on August 25.[4] They won the championship for the second time on May 21, 1999, by defeating The Big Unit (Rick Silver and Dave Desire), and held the championship until February 25, 2000 when they were defeated by Da Hit Squad.[4] During 2000 they also held the Pennsylvania Championship Wrestling Tag Team Championship and the ECWA Tag Team Championship in the East Coast Wrestling Association promotion, which they won by defeating The Backseat Boyz (Trent Acid and Johnny Kashmere).[1]

The Haas brothers began competing for Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) in November 1999, losing to The King Pinz at The War Begins on November 20, 1999.[5] They competed regularly for CZW throughout early 2000, and won the CZW World Tag Team Championship on February 12 at Climbing The Ladder by defeating The Kashmerino Brothers and The Thrill Kill Kult in a three-way match.[6][7] On July 10, they lost the championship to The Backseat Boyz at Caged To The End, when Johnny Kashmere defeated Russ in a singles match and was awarded the championship.[6][8]

After a World Wrestling Federation (WWF) tryout match at Madison Square Garden on August 7, 2000, they signed a developmental contract with WWF the following day.[1] The two worked their way through the tag ranks in the WWF's developmental territories, Memphis Championship Wrestling (MCW) and the Heartland Wrestling Association (HWA).[1] The brothers won the MCW Southern Tag Team Championship three times during early 2001, defeating The Dupps the first time and the The Island Boyz and Joey Matthews and Christian York in a three-way match on both the second and third occasions.[1] Russ died from a heart attack, due to a pre-existing heart condition, on December 15, 2001 at age 27.[9] After Russ' death as a tribute to him, Haas wrote Russ' name on his wrist tape, and used the name "R.C. Haas" (standing for Russ–Charlie) before being called up to the main WWE roster.[1][10] On January 2, 2002, Haas won the HWA Heavyweight Championship, his first singles championship, by defeating Val Venis.[1][11] He was later stripped of the title on January 29 due to a scripted contract loophole.[12] After World Wrestling Entertainment (renamed from the WWF) ended its affiliation with the HWA, Haas was moved to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) where he competed until December 2002.[1]

World Wrestling Entertainment (2002–2005)

Haas debuted on WWE's main roster on the December 26, 2002 episode of SmackDown! as a heel (villainous character) along with Shelton Benjamin as "Team Angle".[2] The tag team was the "contingency plan" of Paul Heyman, and were intended to help WWE Champion Kurt Angle retain his title, attacking Chris Benoit and Brock Lesnar in an attempt to soften them up. They two quickly won the WWE Tag Team Championship on February 6, 2003, by defeating Los Guerreros (Eddie and Chavo Guerrero).[13] They held the championship for three months, including a successful title defense at WrestleMania XIX against Los Guerreros and the team of Chris Benoit and Rhyno, before losing the championship to Eddie Guerrero and his new partner Tajiri in a ladder match on May 18 at Judgment Day.[14][15] On the June 12 episode of SmackDown, Angle fired Haas and Benjamin after they blamed him for losing the Tag Team Championship and began to question his leadership.[16] The duo then dubbed themselves The World's Greatest Tag Team, although announcers made sure to add "Self Proclaimed" to the name. Haas and Benjamin regained the championship from Guerrero and Tajiri on the July 3 episode of SmackDown, but lost it to the reformed Los Guerreros on September 18.[17] The team was separated when Benjamin was moved to the Raw brand as part of the 2004 Draft Lottery.[18]

After Benjamin's draft, Haas gained Miss Jackie as a valet and teamed with Rico to win the WWE Tag Team Championship on April 22, 2004.[19] The pair lost the championship to the Dudley Boyz on June 17, and shortly afterwards, Haas became a singles wrestler, although he retained Miss Jackie as his valet. Haas lost a match to Luther Reigns at the Great American Bash.[20]

Haas was later involved in an angle in which he was in a love triangle with Miss Jackie, who was acknowledged on-screen as his fiancée, and Dawn Marie.[21] The storyline culminated when Haas served as the Referee in a match at Armageddon 2004 between the two women.[22] After the match, Haas left both women in storyline, although he continued his relationship with Miss Jackie off-screen. In mid-2005, he formed a tag team with Hardcore Holly.[23][24] They were involved in a feud (scripted rivalry) with MNM for the WWE Tag Team Championship, but never won the championship.[25][26]

On July 8, 2005, Haas was released by World Wrestling Entertainment along with his real-life wife Jackie Gayda.[27][28]

Independent circuit (2005)

He returned to JAPW later in July 2005,[29] and began a feud for the JAPW Heavyweight Championship with Jay Lethal. On September 10 at JAPW Haas of Pain, Lethal defeated Haas to retain his title.[30] In JAPW, on October 27, 2007, Haas was inducted along with his late brother Russ into the first class of the Jersey All Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame.[31]

He won the Natural Heavyweight Championship at Ballpark Brawl V on August 13, 2005, defeating then-champion Christopher Daniels and Chris Sabin in a triple threat match.[32] He successfully defended the title the next night at Ballpark Brawl VI against Harry Smith with Mick Foley as a referee.[33][34]

During his time back in the independent circuit, Haas competed in the East Coast Wrestling Association's (ECWA) Super 8 Tournament in 2006, where he advanced all the way to the finals before losing to Davey Richards.[35][36]

Return to World Wrestling Entertainment

Singles competition (2006)

Haas calls to the crowd following a hot tag from long-time partner Shelton Benjamin in late 2007.

Haas returned to WWE in 2006, appearing on the April 17, 2006, episode of Raw as Rob Van Dam's handpicked opponent for his former partner, Shelton Benjamin. Haas defeated Benjamin in the ensuing match.[37] Haas continued to wrestle on the lower midcard spot, becoming a regular fixture on Heat.[1]

On the June 5, 2006 episode of Raw, Haas inadvertently knocked Lilian Garcia off the ring apron as he was entering the ring.[38][39] It was announced on WWE's official website that as a result, Garcia suffered a sprained wrist.[38] As a result of the legitimate accident, Haas began a feud with Garcia's onetime storyline love interest Viscera.[40][41] Haas made advances towards Garcia, at one point forcefully kissing her and then dropping her to the ground.[42][43] Haas and Viscera continued to fight for Garcia's affection in the ring, until she told them both that she wanted to be "just friends".[44] Haas gave Viscera an eye rake in anger, and a blinded Viscera accidentally gave Garcia a Samoan drop.[44] Though it was unintentional, when both Haas and Viscera had seen what had happened to their now former love interest, they simply had a laugh about it.[44] After that, Viscera and Haas became a tag team, competing on both Raw and Heat until splitting in December 2006.[1][45][46]

Return of The World's Greatest Tag Team (2006–2007)

After Shelton Benjamin won a match against Super Crazy on the December 4, 2006, edition of Raw, Haas came out to celebrate his win with a bewildered Benjamin.[47] Haas and Benjamin announced the return of The World's Greatest Tag Team on the December 11, 2006, edition of Raw, and they defeated The Highlanders in their return match.[48][49] They then started a feud with Cryme Tyme.[50][51] They continued to compete on Raw through the start of 2007, facing teams including John Cena and Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair and Carlito.[52][53] In mid-2007, The World's Greatest Tag Team feuded briefly with The Hardys in storyline;[54][55] at the One Night Stand pay-per-view on June 3, 2007, they challenged The Hardys for the World Tag Team Championship in a ladder match but were unsuccessful.[56] The team broke up once again when Benjamin moved to the ECW brand on November 20, 2007.[57]

Various gimmicks and SmackDown return (2008–2010)

Early in 2008, Haas developed a gimmick in which he would go under the ring in the middle of his matches and re-emerge wearing a mask.[58] In this "alter-ego," Haas would sometimes perform luchador-esque maneuvers in a comical fashion (such as attempting a diving splash, but instead landing on his feet and hitting a standing splash).[59] The opponent would often unmask Haas mid-match, returning him to his normal demeanor.[58] During this persona, Haas usually competed in dark matches before the live broadcast of Raw or on Heat.[1]

Haas in November 2008 as Haas Hogan, a parody of Hulk Hogan.

Beginning in late August, Haas turned into a face (heroic character) and began a storyline in which he began to impersonate other wrestlers, a concept created by John Laurinaitis, a WWE executive.[60] His first match under this gimmick was a loss to Carlito's real-life brother Primo Colón, while Haas was parodying Carlito with the name "Charlito".[61] He has portrayed such superstars as John Cena, John "Bradshaw" Layfield, Jim Ross, The Great Khali, Montel Vontavious Porter, legends such as Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bret Hart, "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, Hulk Hogan, and even current WWE Diva Beth Phoenix for which he won a Slammy Award.[60][62]

On April 15, 2009, Haas was drafted to the SmackDown brand as part of the 2009 Supplemental Draft.[63] On the May 8, 2009 episode of SmackDown, Haas made his in-ring return to the brand as a heel, abandoning his persona of imitating other wrestlers, and losing to John Morrison in a match where he was accompanied by his former World's Greatest Tag Team partner, Shelton Benjamin.[64] The following week on the May 15, 2009 episode of SmackDown, Benjamin and Haas unofficially reunited and competed against John Morrison and CM Punk in a losing effort, but Benjamin was traded to the ECW brand in June.[65][66]

After an absence of several months, Haas made his return to television by teaming with Mike Knox in a losing effort against Cryme Tyme on the December 31, 2009 episode of Superstars.[67] On February 28, 2010, WWE announced that Haas had been released from his contract.[68] On a March 9, 2010 radio interview with Between The Ropes Haas stated he believes he was released because the creative team hated writing for him because they felt he was "too boring" and they wanted more character than a good wrestler.

Personal life

Haas competed in amateur wrestling during high school, and for Seton Hall University, where he attended on a wrestling scholarship.[69] He also has various other awards for wrestling from high school.[69] Haas was a two-time Big East Champion at Seton Hall and graduated with a degree in economics and business.[69] He then became a stockbroker with Goldman Sachs.[2] According to Haas via the Q&A section on his website, he is a devout Christian.[70]

His grandfather, Hugh Devore, was an assistant with the Houston Oilers and a former Head Coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.[71] Haas' brother Russ was also a professional wrestler, until his death in 2001 due to a heart attack.[9] After getting engaged in September 2004, Haas married fellow wrestler Jackie Gayda on June 10, 2005.[1][72] It was announced on May 5, 2006 that they were expecting their first child. On December 14, 2006 at 3:01 a.m., Gayda gave birth to a daughter, Kayla Jacquelyn Haas, who weighed 6 pounds 7 ounces (2.9 kg), and was 19.5 inches (500 mm) long.[73] The couple's second daughter, Taylor Suzanne, was born on September 17, 2008.[74][75] Haas and his wife opened "Custom Muscle Nutrition and Smoothie Shop", a nutritional store in Frisco, Texas on October 1, 2008.[75]

On August 30, 2007, an article on Sports Illustrated's website named Haas as one of ten superstars found to have purchased illegal steroids not in compliance with WWE's Talent Wellness program. He was allegedly prescribed anastrozole, somatropin, stanozolol, nandrolone, and chorionic gonadotropin between August 2006 and January 2007.[76][77] Haas later said that he thought it was legal, and he was doing it for "maintenance" after he had both his knees reconstructed.[60]
