Parker Wayne Irvine (September 5, 1976 - June 18, 2007) was a Canadian professional wrestler, better known as Nightmare. He competed for the Kritical Wrestling Alliance and Soul Wrestling Incorporated.
Life, career, and deathEdit
Parker was born to Albert and Julie Irvine in Toronto, Ontario. Parker had a younger brother Matt, who currently wrestles as XS3, and an adopted younger brother Anthony, who previously wrestled as Punished Fox. Parker and Diane Terry had a daughter together named Lauren, who currently works for SWI as a backstage interviewer. After seeing his brothers move forward in the wrestling business, Parker decided to try his hand at wrestling as well.
Parker initially made his debut for the Kritical Wrestling Alliance on June 21, 2005 as Nightmare, attacking the Drinkin Boyz when they called for XS3's return. Shortly after, XS3 and Nightmare joined the Karnevil, along with Klown, Jason, Lobo Kerrang, and Mitch Fierce. During this time, Nightmare introduced a new title called the KWA Apocalyptic Championship, which was unsanctioned and never considered an "official" championship. XS3 and Nightmare soon left the Karnevil, and Nightmare eventually left the company.
From October to December 2005, Nightmare competed in a handful of matches for SWI, including a tag team match with Lakeside's Most Wanted against The Ministry and The Wuss. Nightmare soon left before the new year after being written off courtesy of an attack from The Ministry. His appearances became more and more sporadic before he eventually retired on November 9, 2006, ending his short-lived career.
On June 18, 2007, Parker, along with his brother Matthew's foster daughters, were killed when their vehicle was hit by a semi truck. SWI paid tribute to Parker on the following episode of Apocalypse with a memorial graphic and a ten-bell salute.
