Who is UltraMantis Black?
UltraMantis Black is a professional wrestler, who performs primarily in the Chikara professional wrestling promotion, where he is the leader of The Spectral Envoy of the Final Judgment, while also regularly commentating on matches in which he is not competing. Throughout his career he has also worked for promotions such as Big Japan Pro Wrestling, Combat Zone Wrestling, Independent Wrestling Association Mid-South and Jersey All Pro Wrestling. As part of his gimmick, he wears a mantis mask. As UltraMantis, his original red and green attire was based on the main protagonist from the Kamen Rider series, while his ring name was derived from another Japanese television program, Ultraman. In May 2004 he renamed himself UltraMantis Black and adopted a new mask and a red and black attire, while also beginning to express communist views. In June 2006 he formed his own stable, the Order of the Neo–Solar Temple and adopted the dark look he has used to this day. UltraMantis Black, Chikara founder Mike Quackenbush, Hallowicked and Icarus are the only wrestlers who performed on Chikara's first ever show on May 25, 2002, and are still working for the promotion today.
