Martin Krcaj (born May 8, 1975) is an American professional wrestler, manager, and trainer better
known by the ring name Truth Martini. He is perhaps best known as the manager of The House of
Truth stable in Ring of Honor.


Early years

Martini made his professional wrestling debut for Insane Championship Wrestling in a loss to Andy
Muscat. He later joined Juggalo Championship Wrestling and participated in their first show, where
Martini was eliminated from a battle royal for the JCW Heavyweight Championship. As a
consequence, both Martini and fellow eliminated participant Tarek the Great were forced to dress
as Doink the Clown when facing Insane Clown Posse members Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J for
the vacant JCW Tag Team Championships, a match which Martini and Tarek lost.

Independent Wrestling Revolution (2002–2007)

Truth teamed up with Chris Sabin in their first match for Independent Wrestling Revolution where
they were defeated by Frankie The Face & Jaimy Coxxx. On July 24, 2002, Martini and Anthony
Rivera, calling themselves The Threat, beat Chris Sabin and Jimmy Jacobs for the IWR Tag Team
Championships. They lost the titles a month later to Kamikaze and Tenacious Z, but regained them
the next day. After almost a year the pair would lose the championships to Gavin Starr and Jimmy
Jacobs. On October 25, 2003, Truth and Rivera defeated the team of Popular Mathematics
(Bobby Bambino and Jimmy Shalwin) for the vacant IWR Tag Team Championships. At the
beginning of 2004 they lost the titles to The Bump N Uglies (Bubba MacKenzie and Josh Movado),
only to regain them in March. They would subsequently lose the championships to The
Bump N Uglies in a three way tables match that also included Jaimy Coxxx and Jimmy Shalwin.
The Threat then recruited Breyer Wellington and N8 Mattson; however, Truth would leave the
stable to focus on a singles career.

On April 16, 2005, Truth defeated Breyer Wellington, Eddie Venom, Gutter, Jaimy Coxxx, and
Stevie Lee for IWR King Of The Indies Championship. The title was declared vacant the
following July, but Truth regained it in October. Truth held the championship until May 6, 2006,
when he lost it to N8 Mattson in an eleven man gauntlet match. His last match for the company
was in October 2007.

All American Wrestling (2006–2007)

On December 15, 2005, N8 Mattson and Truth Martini defeated Gary Havok and The Golden
Ninja in their debut match at All American Wrestling. The two formed a tag team called The
Michigan Invasion and had multiple matches for the AAW Tag Team Championships in 2006, but
were beaten every time. They participated in AAW Tag Team Championship tournament in June,
and reached the semifinals before being knocked out by Dan Lawrence and Ryan Boz. After
months of trying, The Michigan Invasion would win the AAW Tag Team Championship in a four
corners match which involved Dan Lawrence and Ryan Boz, Jayson Reign and Marco Cordova,
and The Phoenix Twins. They would hold the championships until April 2007 where they lost them
to Krotch and Zach Gowen.

Ring of Honor (2010–2016)

A self-professed Life Intervention Expert, Truth Martini and his House of Truth stormed onto the
scene of Ring of Honor in 2009. Martini debuted at Violent Tendencies as a heel, managing the
team of Josh Raymond and Christin Able in a loss against Kevin Steen and El Generico. His first
singles client, Roderick Strong, had previously struggled with achieving his ultimate goal of winning
the ROH World Champion, but finally won the title with Martini's help at 2010's Glory By Honor IX.
That same year, Strong was joined in The House of Truth by Michael Elgin, and in April 2012,
Martini enlisted the services of Rhino as the hired muscle of the stable; however, in late 2012 both
Michael Elgin and Roderick Strong quit The House of Truth.

In 2013 Martini became the manager of Matt Taven.

At Supercard of Honor VIII on April 4, 2014, Truth Martini helped Jay Lethal win the ROH
Television Championship and became Lethal's manager. Lethal would retain his championship
against numerous acclaimed opponents for over a year before proclaiming himself "THE Ring of
Honor Champion" as well as "the only champion that matters in ROH",[citation needed] even above
the ROH World Championship held by Jay Briscoe. This resulted in matchmaker Nigel
McGuinness booking Lethal and Briscoe in a winner-take-all "Battle of the Belts" at Best in the
World 2015 with both championships on the line. With Martini's backing, Lethal defeated Briscoe
after two Lethal Injections to retain the Television Championship and win the World Championship.

On January 4, 2016, Martini made his New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) debut, when he managed
Lethal at Wrestle Kingdom 10 in Tokyo Dome. The following month, Martini returned to Japan to
take part in the NJPW and ROH co-produced Honor Rising: Japan 2016 event, during which he
and Lethal joined the Los Ingobernables de Japon stable.

After months of inactivity due to suffering a (kayfabe) neck injury, on September 17, 2016, Dave
Meltzer reported via Twitter that Martini had left ROH.
