Alexander William Dow "Alex" Lewis is a professional wrestler who is currently signed with Lewis Professional Wrestling (LPW) under the ring name Alex "The Future" Lewis. He was born on 3rd August 1993 in Auckland, New Zealand.
He is recognized as the unrivalled face of Lewis Professional Wrestling and he is the former LPW Heavyweight Champion.
In his early career he wrestled for Ring of Honor (ROH) and Total Nonstop Action (TNA). Some of his favourite opponents were the likes of El Generico, Tyler Minogue and Kevin Steen. Lewis was signed to WWE in early 2008 and trained with Head Trainer Bill Demott and WWE Superstar Triple H. Lewis utilizes a hybrid high-flying style in which he uses fast-paced kicks and light power moves like atomic drops and snap suplexes. He also uses standard high-flying moves like springboard clotheslines and his signature diving Savage elbow drop. Lewis made his WWE main roster debut in 2010 on Raw where in a brief period of time became a two time Intercontinental Champion and a two time Tag Team Champion with personal friend Drew McIntyre (Andrew Galloway) and his best friend Real Gun Lee S in the team known as 'The Maniacs' These partnerships lasted only a few months before the two teams went their separate ways and Lewis' slow decent down the card began.
In 2012 there was a controversy where Lewis was reportedly sleeping with WWE Diva Nikki Bella (Nicole Garcia). This lead to the WWE releasing him from the company.
Following his release from WWE, Lewis started wrestling for independent wrestling promotions again. He returned to Ring of Honour (ROH) and made appearances in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW).
Lewis stated in a recent interview that in the years that followed his WWE release he fell into a deep depression which lead to drug abuse and suicide attempts stating that his life "Went into a deep spiral that I couldn't escape from" During this time of depression, Alex became very unhealthy and it nearly cost him everything.
In 2014, Alex Lewis had reportedly been in contact with Gareth Lewis (Chief Operating Officer of Lewis Professional Wrestling) and it was revealed that Gareth made a lucrative deal with Alex Lewis that included paying for his drug and depression rehabilitation, and Alex Lewis accepted.
Lewis debuted in LPW in December 2014 and in his first match became the first ever LPW Heavyweight Championship by beating Tyler White.
He has cemented his name as "The Unrivalled Face of LPW" and is riding off the momentum of the being the first LPW Heavyweight Champion.

In his personal life, Alex Lewis tries to get outdoors as much as he can as he finds the scenery 'peaceful'. He is known to be a heavy drinker but stays away from any drug as he prefers not to become addicted once again. He often goes to the gym to train to become the best athlete he possibly can and hopes to one day have the LPW championship, or any other LPW belt, in his trophy case once again. Lewis is apparently good friends with the majority of the LPW locker room but has had a few run-ins with the current LPW champion, Connor Motor. In a recent radio interview, Lewis proclaimed that Motor was in the ear of LPW CEO Gareth Lewis and and had almost as much creative control as the head of the backstage creative team, which Lewis finds highly annoying. Lewis lives a simple life and prefers not to be in the spotlight except for when he is performing in front of his fans in the LPW's Circled Square.
