Biography: The adopted son of James Goodwin, one of the pioneering figures of modern pro-wrestling, Samuel James Goodwin began his career as an active wrestler for his father's promotion James Goodwin Promotions in 2005. A very young man, he wrestles under a mask as "Urizen" in the United States, and is blessed with natural athletic talent. While not as big as his father, Jr. uses more speed and cunning then sheer power and brute force. Goodwin Jr. has bounced around for several years, even capturing the BURNING PARADISE tag team championships with his father for two months in 2009. Jr. showed up in KJPW alongside his younger brother "BIG" Jon Goodwin in early 2013 after being introduced by their father, James Goodwin. "Double Goodwin" would dominate the tag division towards the later months of the year after capturing the HEC Tag Team titles. The two would be forced to vacate the titles in 2014 due to lack of company activity. With KJPW's successful return in 2015 however, Double Goodwin once again plan on reclaiming their spot as the top tag team in not just Japan, but the world!
