Possibly the most beloved figure in PCW, the insane Irishman, Mad Man Manson spent most of his early PCW career trying to make life as difficult as possible for Dave Rayne.

After being defeated by Rayne at PCW's debut show in August 2011, Manson and tag partner Sam Bailey would bounce back the following month and defeat The Blackpool Blonds, being named Disco Madness by the PCW fans along the way.

Using his new-found alliance with Bailey to great success, Manson turned up at October's show to crash Dave Rayne's in-ring birthday party. Bringing with him an obese male dance act and a birthday cake that's use-by date was questionable at best, Manson succeeded in ruining Dave's birthday and making him have his cake and wear it, rather than eat it.

Furious from having his special day ruined, Rayne would spend the coming months recruiting a myriad of tag team partners to try and gain revenge on the Irishman and his cohort. Proving he meant business, Dave's first choice that December was former ROH World Champion, Nigel McGuinness. Unfortunately, the attitude and arrogance of Rayne would rear it's ugly head, rub McGuinness the wrong way and lead to the TNA alumnus dropping “The One and Only” with a Tower of London, gifting Disco Madness the victory.

Not one to give up without a fight, Rayne came back in February 2012 with a new partner, Terry Frazier. Unfortunately, Dave's demeanour would get him in trouble again and Frazier would also turn on him. Disco Madness again left with the duke.

Dave's tag team saviour would soon come in the most unlikely of allies in the form of cross-dressing Scotland resident, Mikey Whiplash. Despite appearing to have absolutely nothing in common, the duo gelled as a team and Dave was finally able to gain a measure of revenge when they defeated Manson and Bailey at Spring Slam in March.

In a first for PCW and all the combatants involved, Guild Wars in June would play host to an all male “Bra and Panties” bout in which the participants would all be dressed in women's underwear. Bubblegum would sub for Manson who had had transportation problems and “Whips and Raynes” would walk away victorious, drawing a line under the feud.

Disco Madness would get a chance at becoming the first ever PCW Tag Team Champions in August at One But Not Forgotten as they participated in a Triangle Tag Team match along with the MOB and Fight Club. Unfortunately, they would leave without the titles. They would get a rematch the following month but were again, unable to capture the belts.

Manson would take a break from tag team competition and square off against Bubblegum at Fright Night on Halloween. In a Coffin match, Manson was defeated after interference from a mystery man in a Spider-Man costume. The mystery man turned out to be Bubblegum's new ally, T-Bone.

After falling to Bubblegum again in December on the Festive Fury pre-show, Before the Fury, Manson would enlist the help of his old partner, Sam Bailey, to defeat Bubblegum and T-Bone in tag team action on the main card that night.

Manson would clash with Dave Mastiff in the Road to Glory tournament in February 2013. No decisive winner would be declared as the war between the two raged out of control, leading to referee Des Robinson taking a spill and the match being ruled a no contest. Due to this, a rematch was set for Spring Slam in April. In a match dubbed a “Million Dollar Dream match” due to the presence of WWE Hall of Famer, “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase in Mad Man Manson's corner. Mastiff would be disqualified thanks to the interference of his manager, Gilligan Gordon, giving Manson the win.

The latter half of 2013 would see Manson engage in all sorts of bizarre scenarios with Danny Hope. Dance contests, burlesque shows and Rocky Horror performances all became the norm on route to the two men forming a tag team. Though the two have yet to see much success together, they remain an incredibly popular act with the PCW fans.

Much to the upset of PCW fans and wrestling fans all over the UK, Manson would announce his retirement during show 3 of PCW & ROH Supershow of Honor as he prepares to marry and focus on his body building career.
