From Binghamton, NY, "Hybrid" Sean Carr is an athlete who had his first taste of Ring of Honor action as a surprise local entrant to the Honor Rumble. Carr impressed ROH officials at a tryout camp and the new Executive Board extended an invitation to this Upstate New York star based on his debut performance in Lockport.
“I fell in love with professional wrestling at a very young age and, from the moment I first saw it on TV, I knew that's what I wanted to do,” Carr told ROHWrestling.com. Carr comes into the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament with a background in the martial arts and the support of his family. “Growing up, my parents Kevin Carr and Rita Carr were my biggest supporters and they enrolled me in martial arts because, they felt it would help me out with my dream when it came time. I'm a 2nd Degree Black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and I have experience in Ju Jitsu, Kickboxing, and also did some amateur wrestling in High School.”
A chance meeting in early 2009 with Keith Zimmer led Carr to begin training with IB Green and Kage in a building with no heat or air conditioning. “It was super cold in the winter and a sweat box in the summer,” recalled Carr.
Carr is an eight-year veteran who has competed primarily in the Northeast, picking up victories with the Tombstone Piledriver and Frog Splash. He has used his martial arts background and those moves to achieve his dream of becoming a pro wrestler. But Carr told ROHWrestling.com that he has some extra motivation in taking the next step – becoming a star in ROH.
“With all the years I've been wrestling, I could never have continued this journey without the love and support from my fiancé Amber and our Daughter Mikylia. I do this for them.” While Carr stresses he leads a normal life outside the ring, watching movies and hiking with his family and dogs Izzy and Max, his record speaks for itself. Carr will certainly be one of the odds-on favorites to win the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament and earn a ROH contract!
