Armed with good looks, quick in-ring skills, and a cocky attitude, the self-coined "Above Average" Mike Sanders has emerged as the leader of WCW's young talent, the Natural Born Thrillers.
Spent time in the army before joining WCW's Power Plant in January 1998... By June of the same year he was in the ring, wrestling for WCW... Three months later, Sanders could be seen on WCW Saturday Night and soon became a regular on the show... When the Vince Russo/Eric Bischoff regime began, he became a member of R&B security and the ring crew... August 8, 2000 marked his wrestling debut on Thunder... Has emerged as the leader of the Natural Born Thrillers, launching his singles career with two victories over Disqo.
Slightly larger in size than a cruiserweight, Sanders can fly like smaller wrestlers but prefers to work the mat. Although he seems laid back, the NBT spokesman has a great deal of focus in the ring, as well as uncanny confidence for a rookie.
