Runaway Train is most famous for being SWF's premier monster heel since 2000, a status he earned thanks to a legendary angle when he put Christian Faith into temporary retirement with a powerbomb off a sound stage. Prior to his SWF career, he worked under his real name, Barry Bowen. While his potential was obvious, he didn't really accomplish as much as was expected, with a short main event run with CGC in Canada being the highlight. He has been an almost constant SWF main event presence since 2004, but after having his second world title reign ended by Jack Bruce in August 2007 it does appear that the aging warrior is slowly being phased out, having his monster heel status transferred to Vengeance instead.
