Simone Biles’ ex-boyfriend was a senior-level gymnast

At age 7 or 8, Stacey Ervin Jr.’s mom, Stephanie Hayes, suggested gymnastics after he ran across a balance beam at a rec center. “I just ran across it and kind of freaked out the instructor there and they pointed us to a different facility which was Michigan Academy of Gymnastics,” he shared on a podcast.

Ervin proved to be a natural. He was a US junior champion in vault at 16. When Ervin got into the University of Michigan, he became part of an NCAA champion team. In his first NCAA Championships in 2012, he placed third on the floor exercise. He graduated from Michigan in 2015 and the 2016 Winter Cup Challenge in Las Vegas marked his last competition as a gymnast.

Before the former gymnast left Michigan, he won a bronze medal on the floor at the collegiate level (NCAA Championships) as well as the national level (US Championships). He wrote a heartwarming message for his team on Instagram.

Stacey Ervin Jr. tried out for the WWE in February 2018, with a little help from his then-girlfriend and gymnastics GOAT Simone Biles. By next year, he started with the WWE’s developmental NXT promotion. And he was the first male gymnast to do so.

Eventually, Ervin decided he would turn away from WWE. His priorities lay somewhere else. While Ervin managed to walk out of a 17-year gymnastics career without serious injury, WWE carried a much higher risk.
