Paul Robert Methric is an American rapper from Detroit, Michigan. Methric is most commonly known as Monoxide Child of the rap group Twiztid. He is also a member of the two supergroups Dark Lotus and Psychopathic Rydas.
Spaniolo and Methric continued to sporadically wrestle for JCW until 2003.
More DetailsHide DetailsBoth are untrained and have had several wrestlers show them moves backstage at shows. When asked in a 2009 interview if they were planning on returning to wrestling, Spaniolo replied, "No, we're not wrestlers. Every time we step into the ring, something bad happens. Either somebody gets hurt, or we get hurt... There are things in life that you're good at, and not good at. We're not good at wrestling." He added that they will stick to simply watching wrestling.
Along with Spaniolo, Methric is a fan of horror movies. As children, the two often watched The Evil Dead. Methric also enjoys the use of supernatural styles in films. He himself has an interest in getting into acting as well, and currently has gigs booked as typecasted and background characters.
Methric is also an avid fan of both video games and tobacco. He plays Xbox 360 online with the gamertag "infamousballer," and has cited Madden NFL 10 as one of his favorite games. Twiztid's internet radio show for WFKO is called Ashtrays and Action Figures, alluding to Methric's love of cigarettes and Spaniolo's passion for collector items and memorabilia.
On December 19, 1999, both Spaniolo and Methric participated in the first "Juggalo Championshit Wrestling" event.

Formed in 1999, Dark Lotus consists of Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler of Insane Clown Posse, Jamie Spaniolo and Paul Methric of Twiztid, and Chris Rouleau.

Psychopathic Rydas formed in 1999, and consists of Psychopathic Records-associated rappers performing under alternate stage names in the style of mainstream gangsta rap. The group's lineup consisted of Bruce (Bullet), Utsler (Full Clip), Methric (Foe Foe), Spaniolo (Lil' Shank), Rouleau (Cell Block) and David Hutto (Yung Dirt). Although, Twiztid has left Psychopathic, they are still a part of the Rydas.
Psychopathic Rydas reuses the beats of popular rappers within the genre without paying to license the original songs or requesting permission from copyright owners to use the music, effectively making their albums bootlegs and resulting in the releases becoming difficult to find in some markets.
In 1997, Twiztid's debut album, Mostasteless, was released.
More DetailsHide DetailsWith the release, a shift in reaction toward Twiztid occurred, and Juggalos slowly began to receive the duo well. Twiztid, however, continued to open for Insane Clown Posse and appear with them at in-store tours, improving their rapport with the fanbase.
In 1999, Insane Clown Posse persuaded Island Records to sign Twiztid. During Twiztid's brief stint with the label, Mostasteless was pulled from shelves and re-released under Island Records. The following year, the duo went back to Psychopathic Records and released Freek Show. Freek Show debuted at #51 on Billboard charts, and Twiztid's fan base grew immensely. Twiztid has remained with Psychopathic Records since, and have helped to sign artists Blaze Ya Dead Homie and The R.O.C to the label. The duo's 2009 album, W.I.C.K.E.D., peaked at #11 on the Billboard 200. With the position, Spaniolo says that "it shows relevance. It shows that we're not just a sideshow act. It shows that we're not just protoges, we're not just coattail riders. We are here."
After receiving an offer from Insane Clown Posse to join Psychopathic Records in 1997, Spaniolo and Methric accepted and reemerged as Twiztid.
More DetailsHide DetailsUpon signing with the label, the duo revamped their image, and set out to prove themselves to the Juggalo fanbase. Twiztid opened shows for Insane Clown Posse, most of the time receiving boos from the crowds and occasionally getting into fights with them.
Methric started his musical career in 1993 as an original member of House of Krazees under the pseudonym Hektic.
More DetailsHide DetailsAlong with Mr. Bones and The R.O.C., the original House of Krazees released five albums between 1993 and 1996. Problems with the group's label, Latnem Entertainment, led House of Krazees to leave the label, and the group disbanded after its 1996 album Head Trauma.
