Rookie yearbook photo for this seasoned vet. I'll be amazed if anyone gets it without hints...

Nope, not Quack... that's what I thought too. Way off.

No sir.

The picture is from this guy's first year in the business. Over 10 years later he is still active, and is the exact opposite of his former self.

I don't think so, I don't know who that is. Most people should know who this is.

It was me treating Grado's name like the curse-word it ought to be.

You're right!

I came a across a really neat article about Killian Dane's career that talked about how he was a "cardio guy" when he broke in...
“My goal to be this size came a lot later but I realized at the end of 2005 I was doing too much cardio and I started winding it down. I was doing 2 hours cardio per day at that point and my body fat was at 11 %. I started getting a bit more educated about weight training and importance of diet. It still took a while but around 2009 I started getting results. I was maybe 15 or 16 stone. Still not close to where i wanted but my strength was getting bigger and I was developing my back and shoulder muscles.

In about 2012 I was around 18 stone maybe 19. My strength was getting through the roof and I’d started different types of lifting. I’d moved into Olympic and strongman and never really looked back. I never had a specific goal. It was always just to look better. I had a bit of misfortune with injuries which are common place in wrestling and at times I’ve been heavier than I wanted to be, but I’ve never stopped training and kept my agility. I still do box jumps as part of my training and can still jump pretty high haha.

With the hair and beard it was always a bit of a fantasy. I have thick hair and it always pissed me off after a while. I shaved it all off April 2013 and noticed it was thinning slightly so if I wanted to have long hair I had to grow it now or never. That was the motivation there really. The beard always itches at a certain level of growth but this one time (September 2013 onward) it didn’t itch. So I let it grow and Billy Kirkwood named me the Beast of Belfast and I loved it so much I kept growing it all. Also meant I didn’t have to shave my body hair anymore which was marvellous”
Here's a more recognizable pic of him a few years later...

Some guys gain gracefully, and other guys are Chris Hero I guess!
