A native of Lima, Ohio, Al Snow has earned a reputation over the years as one of the most colorful wrestlers in the business after toiling for years in relative obscurity. A true hardcore wrestling legend, Snow made his professional wrestling debut with Midwest Championship Wrestling in the early 80s and captured the MCW title in 1985. Snow then wrestled the independent circuit for years and gained a reputation as "The Best Kept Secret in the Wrestling Business." In 1995, the 6' 2'', 238 lb. wrestler made his Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) debut as "The Snowman" Al Snow in a thrilling match against Chris Benoit. After a two-year stint in the World Wrestling Federation wrestling under names like Avatar, Shinobi and Leif Cassidy, Snow returned to the ECW in the late '90s with a new gimmick as a schizophrenic taking advice from a severed mannequin head. Snow wrestled for the ECW Heavyweight title at Wrestlepalooza 1998 but lost to Shane Douglas and soon returned to the WWF where he founded the J.O.B. Squad. On December 7, 2008, Snow made his TNA Wrestling debut.
