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.

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 buisness 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 fathers 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.
During his stay with NGC, Brent would meet a girl by the name of Angel Warren. The two would become good friends before developing a romantic relationship.
Brent currently is working as a in-ring competitor , a wrestling promoter and as a wrestling trainer, eventually opening his own training facility entitled Shoot Project. This would soon lead to Brent becoming a head trainer for the promotion BATTLE PRO where he has trained names such as Silver Wolf, TJ Kennedy, Scott Sapp and The Punk Movement (Rick and Jesse Black) before leaving the promotion later that year. Brent also had a hand in training close-friend Joshua Bishop.
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 fathers life, and constantly hazarding his mothers.
Brent has a character trait of adopting atleast one move from each of his trainers. Adopting the WrestleFury Lariat from Scott Barnett, The Grand Lion Lock from his Father, The European Uppercut from Robin Storm and Final Flash IV from Maxwell Verdi. He also adopts moves temporarily from friends who've been injured or left wrestling such as using AC Arthurz Jumping Complete Shot and MISERA's Forever-Plex. He also names some of his moves after pop culture references such as the Sonic Screwdriver, a tool used in Doctor Who.
Brent wrestled for charity from 2013 onward for the Leukemia Foundation following the passing of a close friend who had been suffering through leukemia 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 honor.
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 fathers 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 less 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 fathers 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 fathers death..Maxwell took Brent and Damian under his wing to teach them the more 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 along side Swedish Wrestler and Mix Martial Artist, Robin Storm. Robin Storm saw Brent's tenacious fighting spirit and would too take Brent under his ring 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 brief stay in NGC and PWR, Brent began wrestling with the infamous English Wrestler and well travelled veteran Scott Barnett. Barnett is well known in England, America and Japan for his tenacious, aggressive and often dangerous wrestling approach, most notably for ending the career of Seth "The Dentist" Silva after a vicious string of lariat variations during a PWR Short Circuit Tour.
Scott Barnett would accept Brent into his WrestleFury Dojo, seeing Brent's diverse full contact style, however wanting it to expand further to make a majority of Brent's arsenal more well rounded and impactful. Barnett would fly Brent out to Japan to train along side him with some of Japans well profound names such as Alexander Monroe, Alex Stryder and Nanashi.
Brent would enhance his wrestling knowledge, learning basic Brazilian Jujitsu, Amateur Kickboxing, Catch-as-Catch-Can, Shoot Wrestling and Puroresu, all of which have become major factors in Brent's arsenal today. Brent started wrestling in Japan more regularly under the watchful eyes of Barnett and Monroe, even winning numerous high calibre matches, including a victory over Nanashi, Alex Stryder and the rare traveling Rubin Corbana, awell as some valiant efforts against Alexander Monroe and Scott Barnett himself.
Brent considered his training with Scott Barnett the most life altering of all his training experiences and adopted Scott Barnett's Black Rose Vines manoeuvre to show homage to his mentor.
