    Iwrestledabearonce was founded during 2007 in Shreveport, Louisiana as the first in the local avant-garde metal movement (along with such bands as Ballet Brutality and Scared of the Dark).The origin of the band's name was inspired by a comment that Gary Busey had said on Comedy Central.They signed to Tragic Hero Records and released their debut EP Iwrestledabearonce EP through the label. Afterward, attention was caught by a major label, Century Media, to which Iwrestledabearonce signed. The group then recorded and released their debut full-length album It's All Happening on June 2, 2009 in the USA and August 31, 2009 in European stores.
    In June through September 2008, their single, "Tastes Like Kevin Bacon" appeared on the Sirius Hard Attack radio station "Devils Dozen" list as high as #4 in the 12 most requested songs.
    It's All Happening reached #1 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart and #122 on the Billboard 200 chart.
    They embarked on their second venture outside of the US in October 2009. The "2009 Imperial Never Say Die" club tour which was sponsored by Imperial Clothing and Jägermeister in the UK and Europe with Architects, Despised Icon, As Blood Runs Black, Horse the Band, Oceano and The Ghost Inside. In December 2009 they were headliners in a US/Canada tour (The Tour That Stole Christmas) with Miss May I, Inhale Exhale and Of Machines.Iwrestledabearonce had been selected for the 2010 Van's Warped Tour and participated from July 20 until August 15, 2010.
    During the summer of 2009, the band decided to relocate to Birmingham, Alabama.
    In 2010, the band rereleased It's All Happening as a 3-disc special edition that includes the regular album, a remix album, and a DVD.
    In November 2010 on their official Facebook profile, they stated they will release a new full-length album on Century Media in 2011. As of November 19, 2010, two songs have already been completed.They have also released a free 5-track remix EP titled It's All Dubstep.
    With the recording of the band's new album, guitarist Steven Bradley has stated that the group's new album will embrace black metal, along with the band incorporating the use of corpse paint. He expressed that the entire band agreed that they do not want to be pigeonholed as a band that is suffixed as "core" any longer and the new record will be "90% black metal" Bradley went on to say "We were sick of getting lumped in with 'scene' and 'whatever-core' bands, so we decided to embrace our roots and just go straight black metal on the new album. We had to change our image to match ...because of course that's just as important, if not more so, than the music." The black metal musical shift was later confirmed to be a large practical joke orchestrated by the band and heavy metal website, MetalSucks. The band's upcoming album, Ruining It for Everybody had a song from the album premiered on the website with the staff confirming that it was all a prank and that the upcoming album "features no actual black metal". The group primarily executed the joke to reveal and parody the over-serious attitude in black metal fans.
