Birthplace: Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Tiger was a successful high school basketball player, even attracting the attention of some of the top ranked colleges in the United States. However, at the age of 18 years old, Tiger decided to follow in his father’s footsteps after returning back from his first trip to Japan where he witnessed firsthand, his father’s iconic stature in the country of the rising sun.
In a sign of showing respect towards his two greatest sport heroes, Tiger was blessed and accepted the honour presented to him by both wrestling great Tiger Jeet Singh and boxing legend Mohammad Ali to carry on both legacies by incorporating their names in forming the professional stage name of ‘Tiger Ali Singh’.
On December 2001, Tiger slipped and fell unconscious during an outdoor wrestling match in Puerto Rico during a rain storm. He was later diagnosed with having suffered his third concussion within a nine month period.
