|MISERA in May 2017|
Damian Noah Osteros (born September 2, 1986) is an American professional wrestler and mixed martial arts artist, better known by his ring name MISERA. He is currently signed to Freedom Pro where he was set to debut at their first issue, however due to injuries was replaced by Alex Stryder.
Osteros began his professional wrestling career on the American independent circuit, primarily with All Original Wrestling (GWA). Throughout his indepedent career, Osteros won several championships including three World Championships.
After returning from training in Team Sityodtong in Pattaya, Thailand in April 2017, Osteros would show more "full contact" strikes in his arsenal. He has also implemented his knowledge in the basics of Lethwei Boxing and expanded on his abilities in Muay Thai during his training in Robbie Scott's Gym, which came to be a strong foundation in his wrestling style, often referred to as shoot style.
MISERA was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. He attended the Green Way High School in Phoenix, Arizona, where he was an amateur kickboxer competing at national level, compiling a record of 9-1 with 4 knockouts as an amateur, until he graduated in 2003.
After graduating, MISERA joined TITLE Boxing Club Ahwatukee in Phoenix, Arizona, where he was an assistant coach in Muay Thai until he left in 2007.
Professional wrestling career
Training in Saitama (2007)
Osteros‘ first venture into professional wrestling was an international MMA tournament in 2006 in Saitama, Japan, that he was invited to after compiling a record of 9-1 as an amateur mixed martial arts artist. The tournament consisted of mixed martial arts artist and professional wrestlers from all over the world.
After two victories, he was eliminated by the much older and more experienced Jared Yoshida (later known as “Warhawk“), who landed a clean knee strike to the head, which left Osteros down for the 10 count. After watching the rest of the tournament on the side, Osters was enlisted by Alex Stryder to have training sessions with him, Warhawk and Prince Strider, who later came to be known as NAHMO.
Osteros and NAHMO would soon become training partners due to their similarities in weight and MMA experience. The duo would be booked in Project Survivor, which is an annual arcade-inspired wrestling show, where Osteros would fall short after NAHMO hit a superkick to a kneeling Osteros.
