About Barry

Who is Barry Ace?

As a kid growing up in Lowell, MA, Barry had 2 loves: wrestling and horror movies. He always knew he would do both someday. He captained his high school wrestling & football teams and also played hockey, baseball (where he set the league base-steal record of 12 stolen bases in a season.) and track and field. Barry was a Super Bowl champion, state champion, and 5X league champion and attended Harvard University. He also played for the Las Vegas Dirty Birds, a barnstorming hockey team, to pay for wrestling school tuition.

In 2001, he made his debut as an in-ring performer and a referee. In 2003, he had his very first match, winning the EWF Hardcore title, and appeared in Ring of Honor in 2004. But in 2005, he finally earned the respect of the fans as the cornerstone of Collision Pro Wrestling and it's successor No Limit Pro Wrestling. Over the course of his wrestling career, Barry has invented not one, but TWO submission holds, and has worked with such names as Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, Kofi Kingston, Palmer Canon, Matt Stryker, Prince Nana, Kaz, & Taeler Hendrix. He was inducted into the New England Wrestling Alliance Hall of Fame in 2010 and in 2014, he made wrestling history by becoming the first person ever to score a pinfall in a battle royale.

Away from the ring, Barry has also established himself in movies and TV after making the very successful Friday the 13th parody "Jason's Day Off", which was well recieved by not only many Friday the 13th fans, but several Friday the 13th alumni as well! In 2008 he landed a recurring role on the popular web series High Heel Samurai, and the next year, made his debut on the silver screen in What Doesn't Kill You, where he played a prison inmate. Barry has also starred in his own Darrk Awakening series and is also the host of Dante's Domicile as "Dante Darrk". He's had the honor to work with such stars as Ethan Hawke, Mark Ruffalo, Christian Bale, Kane Hodder, Melissa McCarthy, Jason Mewes, both famous Wahlburg brothers, & Kevin James.

He's not slowing down anytime soon.
