The cocky Draper, a Colorado native who refers to himself as “The Mile High Magnum,” possesses an awesome combination of size and athleticism. Standing 6-foot-5 and weighing 250 pounds, Draper was an all-state football player and state champion wrestler in high school and wrestled for Chadron State, a Division II wrestling powerhouse in Nebraska. After college, Draper began his pro wrestling training at the WWE Performance Center before ultimately making his way to the new ROH Dojo and Future of Honor.
Haitian Sensation may not be as physically imposing as Draper, but he certainly isn’t lacking in talent. A native of Port-au-Prince, Haiti who grew up in New Orleans, the self-described “beads-wearing, wrestling dancing machine” was trained by the Dudley Boyz and Billy Gunn and has been wrestling on the independents for five years. He was extended an invitation to compete in the TPT after impressing ROH officials at the recruitment combine a few months ago.
Past TPT winners include current ROH World Champion Matt Taven, and TPT alumni include former ROH World Champions Dalton Castle, Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly, as well as Silas Young, Adam Page, Jonathan Gresham and Punishment Martinez, among others.
