FCW Sunshine: Black Pain (Monster Pain)



Topic/Subject: Today, I will be showing a match that involves a Puerto Rican wrestler.

Wrestler: “El Gigante Desquiciado” Black Pain (Monster Pain/Sweet Papi Sanchez).

Background Information: Black Pain is from Puerto Rico. He has been trained by Puerto Rican wrestler Cruzz and has been trained in Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).

In 2004, he made his debut for World Wrestling Council (WWC) under the ring name Black Pain. After La Amenaza Bryan was stripped of the WWC Universal Heavyweight Championship, he won the vacant title by defeating Lance Hoyt in the finals of a tournament. He lost the title to La Amenaza Bryan on August 12, 2006 in Bayamón, Puerto Rico.

On November 23, 2006, he and Hannibal, collectively known as Terror Inc. defeated The New Starr Corporation (Huracán Castillo and Chris Joel) to win the WWC World Tag Team Championship. They lost the titles to Noriega and Chris Joel on January 20, 2007. On March 17, 2007, Terror Inc. won back the titles from Chris Joel and Noriega. They lost the titles again to Juventud Rebelde (Chris Joel and Noriega).

In 2008, he signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and was later assigned to Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).

On June 3, 2008, after Byron Saxton cut a promo for him, he later became Torres’ manager. He was managed by Saxton regularly, accompanying him for matches, and also teaming occasionally with him. He became part of The Saxton Conglomerate, a faction composed of him, Michael Tarver, and Stu Sanders led by Byron Saxton.

He had his first match with the Conglomerate on October 30, 2008, where he teamed with Michael Tarver and Stu Sanders in a losing effort against Johnny Prime, Kafu, and Sinn Bowdee.

In January 2009, he broke away from the Conglomerate, and changed his ring name to Sweet Papi Sanchez, prompting a feud with the remaining Conglomerate members.

On January 9, 2010, he was released from his developmental contract.

On January 16, 2010, he returned to WWC defeating El Bronco in a singles match at WWC Euphoria. On February 13, 2010, he competed in a match against Orlando Colón for the WWC Puerto Rico Heavyweight Championship in a losing effort.

In November 2011, he joined New Pro Wrestling (NPW) and was immediately pushed to the main event. The following month, he defeated Michael Rivera to win the NPW World Heavyweight Championship at Cierre de Temporada. Shane Sewell was scheduled as the first contender for the title, with a match being scheduled for January 28, 2012. However, he left the promotion under unknown circumstances being stripped of the championship in the process.

On April 21, 2013, at the inaugural event of World Wrestling League (WWL), he worked as Monster Pain where he defeated Bobby Lashley to win a battle royal and become the inaugural WWL World Heavyweight Champion.

On September 6, 2013, he defended the WWL World Heavyweight Championship, retaining after losing a countout to John Morrison. Two days later, he retained by disqualification in a rematch, winning when Morrison removed his mask.

On March 7, 2014, he retained the title by wrestling Mil Máscaras to a no contest. Two days later, he defeated Carly Colón and Chavo Guerrero in a triple-threat match to remain champion. On October 18, 2014, at Insurrection, he lost the title against Shane Sewell. At Guerra de Reyes, on January 6, 2015, he defeated Sabu for the WWL Extreme Championship, but lost the title to Shane Sewell on October 18, 2014, ending his reign at 545 days.

He still competes in WWL to this day.


With his big monster like presence and character, he could have been a great monster heel in WWE if used right.

My Thoughts: Black Pain is a very interesting individual. He has a good look, he has a presence about him inside of the ring, he has a good character, solid charisma, and is a solid wrestler for a man his size. RAWR!

Video: This video contains a match between Black Pain and Trent Beretta on November 1, 2008.

My Thoughts: This was a good squash match that showed the dominance of Black Pain.

Black Pain completely destroyed Trent Beretta here as he looked pretty dominant in this match as well as showing some agility here. His swinging side slam to Trent Beretta looked devastating as Trent Beretta sold Black Pain’s moves pretty well to make Black Pain look strong.

After the match, Umaga came to the ring as he stood face to face with Black Pain. As Black Pain was about to fight with Umaga, his manager, Bryan Kelly, pulled him back as both men left the ring. Umaga then destroyed Trent Beretta once Black Pain and Bryan Kelly left the ring.

It was a nice moment to see Black Pain confronting a WWE superstar at the time like Umaga did right there. I also like how that Black Pain wasn’t afraid of confronting Umaga at all as he went face to face with no hesitation. The only reason why he back away from Umaga was because of Bryan Kelly. If it wasn’t for Bryan Kelly, I would expect a massive brawl between the two.

It’s kind of a shame that this match never happen in FCW as it would really help a guy like Black Pain back then. However, I like the tease that they did so that was nice. Good post-match segment here despite being an one off for Umaga here in FCW. Rest in peace.

It’s unfortunate that Black Pain didn’t have much great success in FCW as he could have been as an effective monster type of heel that WWE lacks these days, but at least he’s doing well in WWL at the moment so that’s good. RAWR!

After watching the video, give me your thoughts on the video or the wrestler himself. Thank you.
