The Very Beggining

Joseph Brian Maggio was born on the 16th of July 1981 in Sydney, Australia. Maggio was one of Five children in his family. Maggio started off in a small Indy Circut at age 16 fighting under his Uncles name John Maggio. Maggio didn't make it big time in Australia, but instead became seriously injured in many cases. In 1999 he began his official career in Northern Heights Professionl Wrestling. Maggio instantly became a classic in NHPW winning Tag Team Titles with his brother Robert B. Maggio. In 2002 Maggio won his first major title (The Ironman World Title against Bryan Harris). For the next 5 years Maggio would stay with NHPW; still a big player in their onslaught. By 2007 Maggio had won a total of 5 world titles, 10 tag team titles and 11 various other titles. During the 5 years Maggio stayed n NHPW he also played within the Indy Curcit in New Zealand and The Solomon Islands. He was again big in there too. In 2008 Maggio signed a total of 12 open contracts, but quickly reduced that to 5. He continued to fight in small promotions, but tried to stay on top of things. One of the promotion Maggio signed with was D-Generation XX. Maggio quickly became very interested and endowed in DXX that it became the center of his career. He soon dropped out of the other 4 contracts and signed a closed contract with DXX.



Febuary 2008 marked the debut of White Cloud (Maggio) ; definately considered one of the most unusual superstars to set foot onto a DXX ring. White Cloud made his debut (unsuccessfully) against Wes Zephaniah early Febuary. Maggio would then proceed to team with Steve Corino to attempt to capture the vacated DXX Tag Team Championships (again unsuccessful). Maggio would pick up his first DXX victory against Fusion in his second week. After a failed attempt at the World Tag Team Championships, Maggio would announce his partnership with rival Kevin Kompiler! The Two gave themselves the name the Cross Connection, or simpley the X Connection. The two would meet the MCMG time and time again fighting for the tag team titles, until Dead on Arrival; where the X Connection would steal the titles for themselves. After Chris Sabin was released from DXX, Massacre General Manager crowned the X Connection the new Tag Team Champions.

Sex, Drugs and Rock n' Roll

With March 2008, came some suprises. The introduction of "The White Cloud's band", The Debut of the "Diva Search", The betrayal of Kevin Kompiler, and the oh so shocking Broken Arm. Since the start of March, Maggio had re-teamed with Kevin Kompiler and worked his way into Wrestlemania.

The End of an Era...Or So We Had Thought!

Maggio's end at DXX was inevidable. With a Loss at Wrestlemania, a trade to Mayhem, his first loss at Mayhem; and a family tragedy; Cloud was as good as gone. Or so the public thought. Maggio was set to make a Mayhem return before fate struck at broke his neck in a boating accident. The end of White Cloud had come. An Update on DXX.com on White Cloud's condition had DXX fanatics in a spin bout the return of the Australian fighter. And on the 2nd of July that became a reality with Maggio returning and defeating Villie Valo. Maggio later appeared to congradulate Kevin Kompiler on his World Title Win. Since his return Cloud has racked up an impressive 4 straight wins, with no losses; he has also qualified for the X-Division match at Summerslam 2008.

Other Circuits

Maggio has also been in several other promotions apart from DXX. NHPW as mentioned above; Maggio also wrestled in.

Channel Zero, IBL & Global Impact Wrestling

Maggio appeared on Channel Zero in mid August 2006 known as John Maggio. He would go on to win one Hardcore title reign before the company went broke and shut down. Maggio also surfaced on two Indy Circut promotions. Global Impact Wrestling and International Boxing League. In both Maggio fought under the name Mitch Betts (Maggios half brother). In both he only lasted a couple of weeks. He dropped out of GIW, and like Channel Zero, IBL went bankrupt and were forced to sell up. Overall Maggio said that he wasn't happy about his times in the Indy Circut; but it helped him grow so it doesn't matter that much.

Global Wrestling Alliance

The success story of Maggio began in GWA. A small Indy federation in The Solomon Islands/Samoa/Fiji (that would later relocate to USA, then England) Maggio debuted as Dark Cloud on January 5th 2000. He only won one title on GWA but he was an Instant Classic (hence the nickname) in the promotion. He was one of the most well loved superstars to appear in the federation. Maggio took a small hiadess in mid 2001, only to return late October known as Lahzai Guererro, teamed with Mizz The Magician. The two won the tag team titles (the only title maggio held in GWA.) But in Mid 2002 Maggio would return to his original name. Maggio left the company in 2006 for personal reasons. Late last year Maggio was inducted into the GWA Hallf of Fame; and into the GWA Record books for Most Popular Male Talent, and Youngest Inductee into Hall of Fame. GWA also tanked; only two months ago.

Personal Life

On the 7th of May 2002 Maggio married Lucy Elanor in Brisbane. Since then the two have had 2 kids; Zachary (3) and Michaela (6). In August 2004 Lucy and Maggio took a small break from marriage but two months later got back together. In the past year; Maggio has lost several family members; His Father (Michael Jay Anthony Maggio), Brother (Zachary Anthony Maggio), Son (Zachary Jay Roberto Maggio) and Close Friends (Jack Michaels and Bryan Harris). This affected Maggio a great deal, and sent him into a depression for several weeks. Internet rumors touched on screen for a few weeks of Maggio being addicted to anti-depressants, but the accusations were quickly cleared up. Maggio did however reveal in an unpublished interview that he was for a small point in 2004 (during the split between him and Lucy) addicted to anti-depressants, but he made it clear that he was over the addiction completelyMaggio is currently emotionally and physically well; but rumors of depression still lerk as Maggio tries to recover from the losses his family have sustained.
