Jack Fergal Miller[2] (born April 2, 1982) is an American professional wrestler, better known by his ring name Jack Evans. He currently performs for the Mexican-based promotion Asistencia Asesoría y Administración.[2] In addition to AAA, Evans has wrestled for numerous independent promotions around the world, including Calgary's Stampede Wrestling, Ring of Honor, Dragon Gate, Combat Zone Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla and Wrestling Society X.



Training and early career

Evans made his debut in September 2000 against Tiger Redding.[1] He then began wrestling in the Matrats promotion, which was set up by Eric Bischoff.[3] It was there that he was trained by Teddy Hart.[2] In mid-2003, Evans broke his ankle, before competing for Stampede Wrestling after recovering.[3] He also wrestled for Major League Wrestling (MLW) in 2003 and early 2004.[3] He challenged for the MLW Junior Heavyweight Championship, losing a singles match to the champion Sonjay Dutt, and also unsuccessfully participating in a four-way match, also involving Dutt, Puma and Chasyn Rance.[4][5] During his time in MLW, he also wrestled under a mask as "Dark Fuego" to team with Pete Wilson.[4]

Ring of Honor

Evans made his Ring of Honor debut on November 1, 2003 at Main Event Spectacles, where he wrestled in a Scramble Cage match with Teddy Hart, won by The Backseat Boyz, and which also included Special K, The S.A.T., and The Carnage Crew.[3][6] The match was highly praised, and featuring Evans performing a 720° moonsault off the top of the cage, making him the first person to do a moonsault with two full rotations.[3] Following the match, Evans was involved in an altercation with Samoa Joe.[3]

Generation Next

On May 22, 2004, Evans turned into a villainous character by joining the Generation Next faction with Alex Shelley, Austin Aries, and Roderick Strong.[7][8] Generation Next felt that they were the top athletes in ROH, and they were going to take the top spots in the company any way they could. For the rest of 2004, Generation Next feuded with the likes of the Second City Saints and Ricky Steamboat, as well as others in the ROH roster. At Final Battle, Aries confronted Shelley after he lost a tag match with Strong to CM Punk and Steve Corino. Aries told Shelley to step down as the leader of Generation Next, and then attacked him before Shelley could answer. Strong pulled Aries off Shelley, but then turned around and helped in the beat down. Evans was not present for the event and did not return for the next several shows, leaving into questioning if he would side with Shelley or Aries and Strong. He returned at part one of the Third Anniversary Show on February 19, 2005, teaming up with Strong to face The Ring Crew Express, The Carnage Crew, and Special K (Izzy and Deranged) in a Scramble Cage match.[9] On February 26, Evans lost in a match against Alex Shelley.[10] Following the match, all three members of Generation Next attacked Shelley.

On December 12, 2004, Blitzkrieg gave his gimmick and mask to Evans. Since then, Evans competes on occasion as Blitzkrieg II.[1]

On March 5, Generation Next competed in the Trios Tournament. They won their first two matches, defeating the team of Davey Andrews, Shane Hagadorn, and Anthony Franco (students of the Ring of Honor wrestling school) in the first round, and the team of the Second City Saints (CM Punk and Colt Cabana) and Steve Corino in the second round. Generation Next lost in the finals, however, against The Rottweilers (Homicide, Ricky Reyes and Rocky Romero).[11]

Generation Next spent most of 2005 feuding with Alex Shelley. Shelley, due to his actions while he was the leader of Generation Next, was unable to find many allies in the ROH locker room and was left to defend himself against Generation Next. Eventually, Prince Nana offered him a spot in The Embassy, but he refused, although he soon changed his mind. Shelley joining the Embassy turned Generation Next into faces and the two factions continued to wage war on each other for the rest of the year. On August 12, Generation Next added Matt Sydal to the group, as well as his valet Daizee Haze. Generation Next soon had another valet when Jade Chung, tired of the way she was being abused by Prince Nana, turned on the Embassy. On November 5, Haze betrayed Generation Next and joined the Embassy. The Generation Next/Embassy feud ended on December 3 in a steel cage elimination match, with Generation Next emerging victorious.[12]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling

In 2004, wrestling promoter and personality "Coach" Scott D'Amore brought together fellow Canadians to form his own incarnation of Team Canada in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) for 2004 American and World X-Cup Tournaments. Evans, despite being American, was added to the team, which was composed of Teddy Hart as team captain and both Johnny Devine and Petey Williams as his teammates.[13] When the World X-Cup was announced, the team was revamped to add power to the speed and agility in the previous incarnation of the team, with Hart and Evans being replaced by Eric Young and Bobby Roode.[14] The team made it to the finals, which was an Ultimate X match, but lost to Team USA (Jerry Lynn, Chris Sabin, Christopher Daniels and Elix Skipper).

Dragon Gate and return to ROH

That same month, Evans and Roderick Strong toured Japan with the Dragon Gate promotion. Starting in April 2006, Evans moved to Japan for three months to train and wrestle with the Dragon Gate promotion. In Dragon Gate, Evans became a member of CIMA's Blood Generation faction.

2006 brought changes for Evans and ROH, as Austin Aries and Roderick Strong were the tag team champions while Evans and Matt Sydal began to work more in Japan. On March 30, Generation Next lost to the Dragon Gate stable Blood Generation.[15]

With Sydal and Evans touring in Japan, Roderick Strong and Austin Aries announced at the June 3 Ring of Honor show that there was no longer a need for Generation Next. Evans teamed with Aries, Strong, and Sydal one last time on July 29 at Generation Now, losing to the team of Davey Richards, Jerelle Clark, and Irish Airborne.[16] Following with match, Evans, Aries, Strong, and Sydal laid down their Generation Next shirts in the middle of the ring, officially ending Generation Next.

Evans stayed in Japan for the rest of 2006, wrestling for Dragon Gate. He returned to ROH on January 26, 2007 in Braintree, Massachusetts, defeating Eddie Edwards.[17]

The Vulture Squad

After returning to ROH, Evans began feuding with Roderick Strong and his No Remorse Corps faction. In order to combat the numbers of the No Remorse Corps, Evans enlisted Ruckus, Jigsaw and Julius Smokes to form his own faction known as The Vulture Squad. Evans announced Ruckus and Smokes as members on August 25, at Manhattan Mayhem II after competing against Austin Aries and Strong in a triple threat match, won by Aries, and Jigsaw joined a few weeks later.[18][19] On December 20 at Final Battle 2007, Mercedes Martinez joined The Vulture Squad, and Evans named her "The Booty Vulture".[20]

The Vulture Squad was scheduled to face The Briscoe Brothers at Breakout in January 2008, but Evans suffered a severe facial injury in Dragon Gate due to a kick from Human Tornado prior to the event while Ruckus missed the show due to pnuemonia. They were instead replaced with Vulture Squad member Jigsaw and Matt Cross.

Wrestling Society X

In 2006, Evans taped episodes on Wrestling Society X, which aired on MTV in 2007.[1] In the company's first televised match on the inaugural episode, Evans defeated Matt Sydal.[21] On the following episode, he defeated El Hombre Enmascarado.[22] In a later episode he defeated Scorpio Sky.[23] His most notable feud was with the Human Tornado. The two tied in a "dance off" and had a 10-minute time limit draw on the ninth episode of the show.[23]

Asistencia Asesoría y Administración

In 2008, Evans joined Asistencia Asesoría y Administración as a member of villainous group La Legión Extranjera (The Foreign Legion), led by Konnan. Upon joining AAA, Evans began re-teaming with Teddy Hart as The Hart Foundation 2.0. During this time, Evans along with Hart came close to winning the World Tag Team Championship on several occasions.

Starting in May and through out the beginning of June 2009, Evans and Hart began to have issues as a team. After a match in a tournament for the Cruiserweight Championship against Xtreme Tiger, the team finally broke up. After the breakup, many members of La Legión assaulted Evans before ousting him from the group.

Following his departure from the group, Evans joined Team AAA and thus became a fan favorite, representing the named owner of AAA who was fighting Konnan for control of the company. At Triplemania XVII Evans and Team AAA defeated La Legión Extranjera to win control of AAA and force Konnan out of the company.[24]

Evans returned to Ring of Honor on December 19, 2009, at the company's first live pay-per-view, Final Battle 2009, where he defeated his AAA nemesis, Teddy Hart.[25]

Personal life

Evans cites Hayabusa, Great Sasuke, and Blitzkrieg as his main inspirations while growing up.[3]

In November 2003, at ROH's Main Event Spectacles event, Evans was involved in a backstage altercation with Samoa Joe.[3] In March 2009, Evans was involved in a backstage fight with Juventud Guerrera.[26] The fight started when Guerrera was involved in a confrontation with Konnan, and Guerrera claimed that Evans had been working stiff during the match that he and Evans had competed in earlier that night.[26]
