    Re: Aaron Kendrick

    Damn, so I just changed it to the white and gray theme and realized that everything I typed is permanately white. That's pretty damn stupid that it's not compatible for everyone regardless of their themes. So do I need to redo everything now?

    Re: Aaron Kendrick

    Just edit your post and highlight everything that's white and change it to a different colour if you can. Shouldn't be any need to re-do everything. It's all good anyway, bruv.

    The BFG

    The BFG
    The Big Flippy Giants

    donovan dijak (left) & keith lee (right)

    If you’ve paid any attention to the indy scene lately, or had a cursory glance at Wrestling Twitter then no doubt you’ve seen the ridiculously insane gifs of these two behemoths pretending to be Ryan Rondo on Roids. They fly like they’re unaware gravity is a thing. But gravity is a thing and inevitably, the guy on the other end of their trajectory gets the best reminder of that. No, but seriously. I’m sure you’ve seen faux-athletic big man who manage a hurricanranna and everybody loses their shit. These near three hundred pounders will hit standing shooting star presses and everybody will be explode. Not because of shock. But because the whole arena will probably collapse after the impact and debris will fall at such velocity so as to make bodies explode.

    Anyways.

    Called Ymir & Surtur after the Frost Giant and the Fire Giant of Norse Mythology. The pair were initially signed as individuals going by their real names (Dale Dawson and Christian West). They spent quite a bit of time doing pre-shows, and with the arrival of Zako Wrath and Mac Michaud at the time and impending turn of Michael Garcia, the thought was to avoid overshadowing either the new & returning prominent talents or these new prospective talents.

    Much to their chagrin, these two individuals who had been rivals on the indy scene and only had that relationship deepened after being signed around the same time (certainly feeling that the other man might be stealing their thunder) were paired up as a tag team. Told it was temporary, FWA felt they could give Dale and Christian a trial run on Fight Night in a temporary feud with the then tag team champions, the Olympians. They were given the name of Ymir & Surtur as an easy means of developing a rivalry with the Greek-themed gods, Zeus and Dionyseus.

    Alas, with the Olympians fading from the spotlight, they were withheld back into house show performances (the awkward situation with nGw and BAW preventing their performing there). Though the intent was to separate them again, they remained paired up on house shows begrudgingly for the moment until discovering that they would not actually be splitting up but instead be teaming up for the upcoming FWA Tag League after another team had to drop out.

    Come to see a pair of wrestlers who will redefine what it means to be Larger-Than-Life stars. Come to see monsters who don’t job. Come to see the Big Flippy Giants.


    Ymir && Surtur

    The Frost Giant && The Fire Giant
    Mr. Fantastic && All-Might
    Infinity Man && Limitless
    Thin Man && Little Boy (discontinued)

    6’9” &
    & 6’7”

    290 pounds && 320 pounds

    30 years old && 28 years old

    New York City, New York, US && Toronto, Ontario, CA

    White(&Black)meat Babyfaces


    There’s a reason why Ymir & Surtur are rivals and that’s because they exceedingly resemble each other despite being completely different to any similar sized wrestler or similarly athletic wrestler you may have seen. Ymir & Surtur are ridiculously athletic and are often willing to show it. Ymir, taller and slender, is a lot more prone to a Luchadore-esque style, bouncing and springboarding off ropes, hitting split-legged maneuvers, twisting and swerving around wrestlers for hurricanranna-esque maneuvers. Surtur, slightly shorter, and definitely heavier, has a tendency to aim for more explosive high flying moves. Senton bombs, moonsaults and a trademark standing shooting star splash. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean either don’t do what big men can do. Ymir’s limbs are endlessly long and he can strike you even when you may typically think you’re out of reach. Surtur is a lot more subtle and patient. He enjoys seeing opponents try to strike it out with him, try to lift him or even try to fly at him. He’ll shrug your strikes, wait for you to tire out lifting him (else have his body crush you as you do) and he’ll catch you in the middle of the air at whatever silly move you tried, and show you what flying really feels like.

    Often taller than most opponents, Ymir is quite happy mocking them. He’ll put a hand to your head and treat you like an impudent younger brother (or sister).

    Certainly bigger than most, Surtur is content to get on all fours and give his opponent a chance to strike him, grapple him or fly at him. Other times, he’ll simply turn his back on you. And others still, simply sit down.

    They’re bullies but the crowd digs it, after all, they often end up performing the moves you aren’t likely to forget when you walk away from the show. Whatever they do is often done in good-hearted fun or to belittle someone who the crowd dislike. If, say, Ymir does an eye poke, it’s not to garner a win, it’s to showcase his reach, and give the fans a chuckle.

    Outside of the ring, Ymir & Surtur tend to bicker and despite their similarities, are prone to disagreements out of innate rivalry. Still, they have strong moral compasses, fight for the people and by the people, are very much willing to respect their opponents, and enjoy the notion of proving to people that whatever you want to do, you can do, disagreeing with stereotypes and expectations. Ymir & Surtur are all about showing people that you’ve got subvert what people expect from you. Make them expect the unexpected.

    Honestly, you can be creative with the moveset. They're big. They're bullies. They like to show off. They like "This Is Awesome" & "Holy Shit" chants. They like a chuckle or two. They're showman. They'll do what they can for a pop.

    It's still super weird to me that we had an Aaron Kendrick in FWA before but you say it's not you, and you've been in FWA before but not us. Like, that's weird right?

    Very. Lol in the FWA that I was in, we had a choice of either using made up characters(like on here) or we were also allowed to use actual wrestlers. For example, I won the world title from Goldberg.

    Introduction promo of at least 10 lines introducing your character to us:

    Fading in from static, we hear a lone voice,

    “Nothing that has happened...matters.”

    A voice so soft, yet cold and chilling.

    “Nothing that you have seen...matters.”

    The camera opens on the inside of a dark room, the only source of light we can see are the little rays of sun, shooting through the small gaps in the curtains that have been drawn across the nearby windows. In the distant, movement, as the silhouette of a man approaches.

    “Until…”

    The silhouette moves closer...

    “This…”

    Closer…

    “Very...”

    Closer

    “Moment!”

    Before us we see a man, crouched down in front of the camera, barely unable to make out any facial features with jet black hair, draped down, covering one side of his face. He raises a finger before continuing.

    “Not a single thing that has happened in the F...W...A has mattered up until this very moment. Because this is the moment where I arrive, this is moment where I leave MY mark in the wrestling world, this is the moment where I make the FWA mine. This is not just a promise, but a warning...the FWA will be under my LOCK...and key.”

    And with a sick smirk on his face, the mysterious man slides back into the darkness as we fade to a black screen. A second later, a name appears on screen in red letters:


    Before the video fades to an advertisement of the FWA website which signals the end of this mysterious video.

    Theme music:


    Introduction promo of at least 10 lines introducing your character to us:

    *Static emits from the blacked out titantron, and silence falls on the arena. It stands for a couple of moments, until some inaudible mumbling breaks the tension. Things go quiet once more, but the second audio queue plays. It’s just a voice, unfamiliar to most.*

    It’s about damn time.

    *A scene starts to fade in on the titantron, revealing a close up of a man sitting at a table.*

    I’m no stranger to introductions, in fact this is my second one within two months. I’m fairly aware that the FWA audience my not recognize me, so allow me to introduce myself.

    *The man smirks*

    I’m Travis Morgan. And the last time I made myself known, I put the company on notice. I told them about my extensive training, and what it took to get there. It was my first promotion, but I let them know that I was coming into my own. And I did. My last match there was for their tag team titles, with a couple of acquaintances I gained along my travels. Everything was looking great, I was going to taste my first championship victory. But right before that moment? The owner put out a statement that he was stepping down, and the decade long federation was most likely going to implode.

    They took away everything that I worked so hard to gain! But I wasn’t going to let that be the end of such a short career. Nah, instead I came in contact with FAW the moment that announcement was made. I left, but vowed that everything that I did would not be in vain!

    So here I am, FWA. A new start for me, but the mission is the same. And not a damn thing is going to stand in my way from what I so rightfully deserve.

    We’ll meet again soon.

    *The scene fades*

    Welcome.

    Kind of confused from your intro promo, what's the story with Morgan? Was he in another fed?

    Thanks. And yeah, been using him for a little while. He hasn’t really had a backstory to build upon, so this was just a fairly generic intro promo. I’ll hopefully be able to get more into the swing of things as I ease in.

    Re: Travis Morgan

    Great sign up. I encourage you to read some promos in your free time if possible. I always suggest reading Jiggys promos, or RainShaker's, TGO's, or Cyrus Truth's. They are generally regarded as the top dogs around here with the most consistently high scores, but everyone has their strengths and style. Learn a little from everyone.

    Card for next show will likely be posted in this forum tomorrow. Promo thread will be posted minutes later. From there you'll have 6-7 days to promo for the show. Check the FWA Information thread for what we look for in scoring, and what is acceptable in promos. The first week you'll likely have a jobbers squash match.

    Welcome aboard, mate, and the most important thing is to have fun.
