Leper Messiah is character created in Puerto Rico's Freedom Caribbean Wrestling by Shawn Gonzalez, custom-made for the wrestler Tully Arthurs. Tully, a former holder of the "World's Strongest Man" title who used to work occasionally under the name Tom Angelus, is a powerhouse worker who had drifted around wrestling for several years. Although he had a physique to die for, his bland babyface mannerisms and sub-par ring work meant that he never connected with the crowd and so never stayed long in any one place. The nightmarish Leper Messiah character - a sociopathic degenerate who loves pain - was an admitted shot in the dark, but Arthurs surprised everyone by playing the character perfectly. Although his in-ring performances are still nothing to get excited about, his awesome new character helps hide that fact.
Before the Leper Messiah character was made for him, he used to work as "The World's Strongest Man" Tom Angelus and came to the ring dressed in torn jeans and flannel shirts.
