Joseph Michaels, better known as Joe Michaels and Chris Owens, is an American professional e-wrestler who was signed to Lords of Pain Wrestling (LPW).

Early life

Michaels was born in 1985 to Auron and Alexandra Michaels in Toronto, Ontario. His parents were both in the baseball club owning business, so he was basically born in a rich environment. Joseph’s parents loved him a lot, but weren’t about to let anything happen to their only son at the time. After much goating from Joseph, Auron and Xandra allowed to enroll him in kickboxing classes. As he grew and began to mature, so did his skills. But Joseph had dreams of competing in the wrestling business.
