Dr tom prichard vs nightmare danny davis
Briley started wrestling in 1977 in the Tennessee territory, where he made a name for himself as "Nightmare" Danny Davis. He would also wrestle as one half of the masked Masters of Terror in the United States Wrestling Association. Davis had a frequent tag team with Ken Wayne in the 1980s. At one time, they wrestled under masks as The Nightmares. The duo also worked under masks as The Galaxians for WCW in the 1990s.
Davis also had a brief stint during the latter days of the Central States/Kansas City territory as Tiger Mask, which occurred a few years after Satoru Sayama's tour of the WWF introduced American audiences to the gimmick. He also wrestled in Smoky Mountain Wrestling in 1992. He retired in 1997 and opened Ohio Valley Wrestling. He, however, legally retained the name of Danny Davis. In 2009, he opened Vyper Fight League, an MMA promotion, alongside John "Bradshaw" Layfield. The promotion ceased operations in 2010.
On December 13, 2012, he appeared on a segment of Impact Wrestling where he was training Joseph Park to improve Park's skills. On March 7, 2013, he was named as a judge for TNA Gut Check. He returned to in-ring action in the December 2014 Saturday Night Special, teaming up alongside Trailer Park Trash and losing to War Machine (Shiloh Jonze and Eric Locker).
On July 7, 2015, Davis sold OVW to an investor.
Briley has two sons, Stewart Davis and Simon Davis-Millis. He is the uncle of wrestler Doug Basham.
