|Brent Delivine in May 2017|
Brent John Harvey is a second generation Australian Professional Wrestler better known by the ring names Brent Delivine (formerly Blair and Brent Morasko) and formerly Brent Harvanator. Brent is currently a freelancer.
Brent debuted in pro wrestling quickly after his training working as a freelancer. He would pick up his first wrestling appearance in the Japanese Shoot promotion Tiger Cave under a mask and stage name, Young Lion, an underdog character who had to pay his dues to be accepted by the rest of the roster. After a series of matches with Black Tiger (Shinji Yamazaki), Brent stopped making appearances for the promotion, which he later explained as having trouble seeing with the mask, causing him to botch spots. He also explained that he had to rely on the very few of the promotion that spoke English, and decided to leave until he had learned the language.
He quickly moved to the United States, working in the Washington-based Wrestle Coast: Cascadia.
Innovative CAW Entertainment:
Blair Morasko along with Damian Morasko would sign with ICE as a tag team. On Overdrive 1, Blair would come up short in his New Generation Championship match, losing to the champion, Chris Carter. On Overdrive 3, Blair would lose to Joe Jacobson, which lead to conflict between Damian and Blair on the following episode of Overdrive where Damian told Blair that the rest of the roster was talking behind Blair's back and would call him a joke too, not only to the Morasko name but to himself. At ICE's first PPV, A Step To Victory, Damian would form an alliance now referred to as "The Family" with Maxwell Verdi following Damian helping Maxwell to defeat Robin Storm. It was later that night that Damian severed his ties with Blair before going to win the New Gen Championship off Chris Carter. Brent would compete in the ICE Lord of the Empire tournament, however, would be defeated by Brian Mcloud. ICE would close its doors and YouTube channel following this event, leaving many to go for work elsewhere.

The attack rendered Brent bleeding from the top of his head, he later announced on twitter he received 5 stitches and showed symptoms of a concussion. Morasko would challenge Brent to a match the following show, however, Brent was escorted out of the arena prior by order of general manager Brandon Delicroix for Brent's safety. He would go on to announce on Twitter that he disagreed with Delicroix's decision to send him home and promised to be on the following show. Brent fulfilled his promise on PURE 3, challenging Morasko to a match. Delicroix would come out to inform Brent that Morasko wasn't in the building, Brent wasn't cleared to compete and had to be escorted out by security.

Brent was born in Sydney, New South Whales, Australia on March 20th, 1992 to English father Stuart Harvey and Australian mother Debra Harvey. He has a little brother, Jacob Harvey. Brent got into the business at the age of 10 from his Father, after he retired from wrestling due to his alcohol addiction causing heart problems.
He obtained a tri-citizenship with the US, having already citizenship with the UK and Australia.
His father would pass away due to a heart attack in February of 2012, which was caused by the alcohol addiction. Brent would sport his father's wrestling jacket to pay homage to his father, which showed the union jack stitched in near his heart on the jacket. He would later donate the Jacket to the UK Wrestling Hall of Fame.
Brent is strongly anti-religious, however, refuses to acknowledge himself as an Atheist due to many using Atheism as a religion in itself. He has also stated he is Straight Edge, this being due to alcohol causing his parents divorce during childhood, ending his father's life, and constantly hazarding his mothers.
In 2014, Brent started dating Angel Warren and the two would get married later that year. While together the two had three children, Casey Harvey, Caleb Harvey & Lexie Harvey. The two would seperate in late 2016, though they reportedly stayed in contact until mid-2018.
Brent wrestled for charity from 2013 onward for the Leukemia Foundation following the passing of a close friend who had been suffering from leukaemia since 2012. He adopted one of his friends' tattoo's which read "Live Devine", and reworded it as "Delivine" for his ring name in her honour.
The Training of Brent Delivine:
Stuart Delivine/Stuart Harvey:
Brent's father Stuart is the main influence that made Brent dedicate his life towards professional wrestling. At the young age of 10, Brent started training with his father following his retirement from professional wrestling due to his health. His father would take him to local bookings and take him to the ring before and after shows to make him run off the ropes, do push ups, sit ups and basic back bumps for the first 3 years of their training. The following years allowed Brent to start weight lifting, however, due to his eating disorder not allowing him to gain body mass easily at that stage, Brent's muscular development was a slow process. He would start training for shorter sessions but in more session periods, having 3 sessions a day for 2 hours each. By the age of 16, Brent would be able to join his father's wrestling school for full wrestling classes with other students, this is where Brent will practise doing moves to opponents as well as receiving them. He would train in fewer sessions a day due to his high school work being a factor but would go back to training in longer lasting sessions. He would graduate at the top of his class at the age of 18 from his father's training and would begin his wrestling career.
He would train with his father every possible chance he could get until his father died in 2012 due to a heart attack.
Maxwell Verdi & Robin Storm:
Brent would begin training with his best friend Damian Morasko and his mentor Maxwell Verdi following his father's death Maxwell took Brent and Damian under his wing to teach them a full contact aspect of the profession, this would change Brent's moveset drastically at the time, adding various full contact knee strikes to his arsenal. Max's reputation in the wrestling industry, being the self-entitled "Plague of Wrestling", started making Max a more isolated individual. This would stop Brent's training with Maxwell Verdi.
It was in mid-2013 when Brent would begin working alongside Swedish wrestler and Mixed Martial Artist, Robin Storm. Robin Storm saw Brent's tenacious fighting spirit and would take Brent under his wing to teach him the European style of professional wrestling, making Brent's wrestling arsenal more diverse than ever. Brent still trains alongside Robin Storm during once a month sessions, the two show extreme amounts of respect to one another.
The WrestleFury Dojo/Scott Barnett:
During his stay in NGC and PWR, Brent began training with world-traveled veteran Scott Barnett. Barnett would accept Brent into his WrestleFury Dojo, on the condition that Delivine dedicates time to a martial arts discipline. Delivine would begin training in the Judo discipline and would simultaneously train with Barnett. Wanting to become Barnett's apprentice, Delivine trained through harsh conditions and training methods, including Barnett stiffing Delivine during sparring matches and using Kendo Stick shots as a disciplinary method for poor performances. This would ultimately harden Delivine into a better athlete, which lead to Barnett giving Delivine his final test, learning the art of Strong Style Wrestling with a tour of Japan. He would compete in both Junior Heavyweight and Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Tournaments with Damian Misera as his touring partner. Although he failed to win either tournament, he had a short-tenured heated rivalry with "Lightning" Tetsuo Oshiro throughout the tournament, culminating at the New Sumo Hall - Ryogoku Kokugikan in front of 9,000 people in a match that contended for Tokyo Sports' Match of the Year.
Brent considered his training with Scott Barnett the most life altering of all his training experiences and adopted Scott Barnett's WrestleFury Lariat to show homage to his mentor.
Robbie Scotts Gym:
Since 2014, Brent Delivine has had an on and off relationship with the Robbie Scotts Gym due to its affiliation with the WrestleFury Dojo. After Barnett's official retirement from pro-wrestling, Delivine out of some sense of loyalty decided to keep using the WrestleFury Dojo facility as his training ground, leaving Robbie Scotts in the process. In mid-2017, Delivine announced that he had signed on with the Robbie Scotts Gym after some convincing by MISERA. Due to this, Delivine would also begin touring with RSG's parent company, Fighting World Championship.
