Rick Clements is an American professional wrestler from San Diego, California, better known as Quicksilver.

Career

Quicksilver is a regular on the California independent circuit, working for local promotions in the area such as Alternative Wrestling Show, Revolution Pro Wrestling, Southern California Championship Wrestling and Battle Ground Pro Wrestling. He also occasionally worked some shows for major East Coast indy promotions Combat Zone Wrestling and Jersey All Pro Wrestling.

Beginning his career in Revolution Pro, Quicksilver was a graduate of its Rudos Dojo wrestling school along with Chris Bosh, Scorpio Sky, and many others. After debuting in the Fight For The Revolution Tournament in which the winner would receive a contract with the company, Quicksilver would advance all the way to the finals against Scorpio Sky ending in a time limit draw. Both men were given contracts.

Quicksilver and Scorpio Sky would then form the team of the Aerial Express, or AXP for short. They had great success quickly running through all the top tag teams and becoming Southern California Tag Team of the Year in both 2003 and 2004. The Aerial Express won the AWS tag team titles 2 times. In late 2004 Quicksilver would win the finals of the Spirit of the Revolution Tournament defeating Pheonix Star in the finals. He would then go on to compete in the 2004 Revolution J tournament losing to partner Scorpio Sky in the finals. Soon after he defeated Scorpio Sky to become the Revolution Pro Junior Heavyweight Champion on the final Rev Pro show.

In 2005 he would also hold the AWS Light Heavyweight Title at the same time and would lose and regain The Revolution Pro Junior title becoming the last man to ever hold the championship.

In 2007, Quicksilver arrived in Wrestling Society X as El Hombre Blanco Enmascarado. He debut on WSX against Human Tornado but ended in a no contest after Tornado was attacked backstage by 6-Pac who also attacked him. He was a main stream on WSX-tra where he formed a tag team with old school wrestler Scott Colton "(Matt Classic)".

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (2004-2007)

After arriving in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, Quicksilver and tag team partner Scorpio Sky, known as the Aerial Express, were successful but when Scorpio Sky was sidelined due to injury, Quicksilver found himself teaming up with Chris Bosh, Quicksilver won the PWG Tag Team titles with Chris but lost them soon after.

Quicksilver then teamed back up with Scorpio Sky with Dino Windwood as their manager to chase the PWG tag titles in 2004 and 2005. They received shots at then champions Arrogance(Scott Lost & Chris Bosh) but were unsuccessful. In the summer of 2005 they defeated Los Luchas(Zokre & Phoenix Star) to become #1 Contenders and once again were given a shot at the belts in a Masks vs. Titles match, If the Aerial Express lost they would be forced to remove their masks. This time they were victorious.

By winning the PWG World Tag Team Championship in July 2005 with Scorpio Sky, Quicksilver won his second PWG Tag Title after winning it previously with Chris Bosh. However, during late 2005, the team split and Quicksilver competed in PWG as a singles wrestler. Quick chased Joey Ryan's PWG World Title but was unsuccessful in attempts to capture it. Quick then team with El Generico. This new team was known as Cape Fear.

As with the Aerial Express, Quicksilver again enjoyed a reign as one half of the PWG World Tag Team Champions, giving Quick his third PWG tag title. Quicksilver then suffered a class two concussion during the February 10, 2007 show in Van Nuys, California. Due to this concussion, the PWG Tag Team Titles were not defended on February 24 and were vacated on March 10 2007. Since then, Quicksilver has not wrestled.
