Michael K. Cariglio (born July 19, 1971)[1] is an American professional wrestler, better known by his stage name, Michael Modest (sometimes shortened to Mike Modest).[1] A Bay Area legend on the independent circuit scene, Modest ran the promotion Pro Wrestling IRON with tag partner Donovan Morgan and Frank Murdoch until its closure in 2005.[1] Modest has also wrestled in Japan for Pro Wrestling Noah, winning the GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship after defeating Yoshinobu Kanemaru. He has also wrestled in Canada, Mexico and Ireland. He is perhaps best known for his appearance in the wrestling documentary Beyond the Mat,[1] and also appeared in the film Ready to Rumble.[3]



Modest began wrestling in 1991, and has worked for All Pro Wrestling, Universal Wrestling Association, and World Championship Wrestling (WCW), along with both Asistencia Asesoría y Administración (AAA) and Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) in Mexico. Modest had try-out matches for both the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and WCW, and eventually got signed to a WCW contract, although he was released after WWF bought WCW. After his release he began working for Pro Wrestling Noah in Japan. In 2001, he also worked for Stampede Wrestling, and won the North American Heavyweight and Pacific Heavyweight titles. He was the last ever Pacific Heavyweight Champion.

Modest also operated the Pro Wrestling IRON school and promotion in the USA, along with his tag team partner Donovan Morgan. He also briefly worked for Ring of Honor.

On March 18, 2005, Modest won the Mike Lockwood Memorial Tournament held by New Breed Wrestling Association, defeating Jamie Noble in the finals. On February 18, 2006, Modest wrestled in a six-man tag team match with Morgan and Ryan Drago, as "La Migra" on an episode of TNA Impact!.[4] They lost to the Latin American Xchange.[4]
