Scorpio Sky was born Schuyler Andrews on 2 April 1983, in Los Angeles, California, United States. He is 38 years old as of March 2022. Based on his birth month, he is an Aries. The professional wrestler was raised in Los Angeles, but details of Scorpio’s biography have not been revealed.
When Scorpio graduated from high school, he was tempted to enlist in the United States Army, but in the end, he decided to go to college. Unfortunately, he did not go past the freshman year as he dropped out to become a professional wrestler.
Andrews was always a big wrestling fan, even from a young age, as he idolized the likes of The Midnight Express, Rick Flair, and Bret Hart. So he started to train with his high school wrestling team to gain experience. When he graduated, he became a Revolution Pro Rudos Dojo member.
Sky's debut in Revolution Pro was in June 2002 as a masked wrestler with the ring name Gallinero Tres. In November 2002, he re-debuted in the Rudos Dojo “Fight For the Revolution" Battle Royal using the ring name Scorpio Sky. The winner was given a Revolution Pro contract, and Scorpio Sky made it to the finals, where he tied with Quicksilver; hence they were both given contracts.
The two later formed a formidable tag team named the Southern California Tag Team of the Year for 2003. They also won the 2003 Revolution Pro Tag Team of the year Award. Having achieved enormous success in Revolution, Sky joined Pro Wrestling Guerrilla in 2003. He once again teamed up with Quicksilver and Dino Winwood as their manager.
In June, the duo defeated Los Luchas to become the number one contender for the PWG tag team title. During the match, Quicksilver was injured, but Sky managed to win against Bosh and Lost. However, Sky did not show up for a title defence the next day because Joey Ryan, Lost had assaulted him, and Bosh after the previous match; hence, they were forced to vacate the title.
What happened to Scorpio Sky? After losing the title and being unmasked, the team split, resulting in Sky's "Disappearance to Africa" angle. It was thought that he had quit the wrestling business, but he came back in September without a mask.
Scorpio Sky Experience
In 2006, Sky launched the Scorpio Sky Experience, which was hated by fans but helped him climb PWG rankings after defeating Chris Hero, Kevin Steen, Human Tornado, and Homicide. After the success, he formed The Dynasty stable with Scott Lost, Jade Chung, Chris Bosh and Joey Ryan.
He was then engaged in a rivalry with Frankie Kazarian because he had assaulted Kazarian after a match and cut his hair. On September 2, Sky lost to Kazarian in PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles 2006 through disqualification after Jade Chung’s interference.
MTV's Wrestling Society X
Between 2006 and 2007, Sky participated in MTV's Wrestling Society X, where he gimmicked himself as the best athlete in the history of Montclair High and always carried two plaques that he had won. Unfortunately, the show lasted just one season, and Sky moved to other promotions.
Empire Wrestling Federation
In 2007, he started working with the Empire Wrestling Federation and was among the top wrestlers in the Inland Title Series Tournament. He defeated Ryan Taylor and JT Blackstar to advance to the finals, losing to Brandon Gatson. In 2008, Sky and Gatson’s match at the 12th Anniversary Extravaganza was one of the most hyped matches in EWF’s history.
Later that year, Sky defeated Gatson to become the EWF Heavyweight Champion. He continued the winning streak against Lil Cholo and Karl Anderson to be crowned the AWS Heavyweight Champion. He was nicknamed "King of SoCal” and defended his title successfully 11 times.
On 27 August 2012, Scorpio Sky’s WWE appearance was in the form of a character named Harold in Daniel Bryan's anger management class. Towards the end of 2012, WWE severed its relationship with Andrews after Scorpio Sky’s Twitter account was associated with anti-gay comments.
He made an appearance at WWE’s SummerSlam 2013, posing as a firefighter during the "Ring of Fire" match between Kane and Bray Wyatt. 2021 saw Sky win the Face of the Revolution ladder match and earned himself a future TNT Championship match.
When he received the title match on March 10, he could not beat Darby Allin; hence he turned heel after the match and attacked Darby.
Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page allied to feud with Sting and Darby. Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky lost to Sting and Darby in a tag team match at Double or Nothing 2021. His moment came when he defeated Sammy Guevara, who had been undefeated for a year and won the TNT Championship.
Who is Scorpio Sky’s wife?

Scorpio has had a long and successful wrestling career. In addition to that, he is also a Mixed Martial Artist. As of 2022, his net worth is believed to be around $3 million.
