    Gerald Grayson

    ​​

    Character name:
    Gerald Grayson


    Height and Weight: 6’2 - 220

    Age: 25

    Face/heel/tweener: Face

    Hometown: Raleigh, North Carolina

    Announced From: Raleigh, North Carolina

    Mini Biography: Gerald was always one for the thrill. He is a lover of extreme sports. At a young age, Gerald took up motocross and was a favorite of his. Not only did motocross take up his time, but he took up boxing as well. With those two things taking up his time, Gerald didn't do so well in school. In fact, he just did enough to get by. As he grew older, he tried a bunch of other extreme sports. However, that meant that he has suffered a lot of injuries but that didn't stop Gerald from his love of extreme sports. Now, he enters FWA to challenge himself to experience one of the biggest thrills of them all - getting in the ring with some of the best wrestlers the world has to offer.

    FWA accomplishments:
    Current X-Division Champion

    Style of wrestling (brawler, high flyer, technical, etc.): High Flyer who can throw punches

    Moveset
    - Dropkick
    - Chop
    - European Uppercut
    - 10 forearms in the corner

    - Anything springboard (clothesline, dropkick, forearm, DDT, hurricanrana, etc.)
    - Suicide Dive
    - Sling Blade
    - High Knee

    Finishing Moves
    Sky High (Double Jump Moonsault) (ala Christopher Daniels)
    Extreme Impact (Slingshot Clothesline) (ala Adam Page)

    Base pic for your character (please include the name of the base pic): Cody Rhodes

    Theme Music: Battle Cry by Little V


    Entrance Description: Gerald comes out and starts getting pumped himself as he's jumping all around the stage. He goes to one corner of the stage and tries to get the crowd pumped as well. He goes over to the other side and does the same thing. He finally settles in in middle of the stage before he looks up to the sky and points up with his two hands. Before long, he runs down the ramp and slaps hands with people in the front row. As he enters the ring, he slingshots himself in in a corner before doing some stretches to get ready for his opponent.

    SAMPLE RP

    "Finally."


    ---

    We transition to another scene where it seemed like any other say as the scene opens to a garage with the sounds of tools hitting each other. I was fixing and old bike of mine and the many sounds coming from it could definitely be heard around the house.

    I knew it would happen but I didn't think it'd happen this quick. Not sure why I felt that way but it's all happening so fast. But I knew I was ready.

    I put my wrench down and the clang of it hitting the cement was like music to my ears. Weird huh? With my hands free, I finally start up the bike. It started to purr for sure but after a few moments, it went out with a whimper.

    "God damn it. I guess that wasn't the problem with it. This is gonna take longer than I thought."

    I wipe the sweat that formed on my forehead. I take a short break and head towards the mini cooler in the garage. Let's see, beer, more beer, ahh, a bottle of water. Let's go with that one. I take a bottle of water and take a few sips before pouring the rest of the water on top of my head. What a great feeling.

    As I throw the water bottle away...

    *RING RING RING*

    I walk towards my phone and see the name on the called ID - Ryan Rondo.

    "Finally."

    I let it ring a few times just to collect myself and didn't want to make myself seem too eager. After a few moments, I finally answered.

    "Hello, Gerald Grayson here."

    Rhodes fits Grayson well!

    Is PJ Black going to be the new Shawn Summers base?

    *Sigh* damn, I wish someone from the creative team would have asked me in private if I was still planning on using Cody Rhodes for Shawn Summers or bringing him in...at all before they gave you the go ahead. Use that character base well, my dude. Look forward to seeing what you're doing.

    I didn't realize or have any clue Cody was Shawn's basepic. Didn't think a moment to ask around since Cody hasn't been used before in the FWA. Apologies for that. Jam, I messaged you on Discord about this.

    Re: Gerald Grayson

    Has Shawn Summers been in the FWA? His base pic in CWA was never Cody Rhodes, it was always some rando MMA dude (and by rando I mean I dont know him).

    Then I'm confused by all of this. I dont recall Shawn Summers being in the FWA.

    I just checked, Summers has never been in the fed but his theme is in the taken pic bases thread for unknown reasons. Also I checked his CWA sign up and it says that his most recent pic base was Luke Rockhold. So I’m also confused.

    If you were to check the Division's profile, you will see that Shawn Summers was represented with Cody Rhodes as the base pic. I've used him as their manager in promos but...go off.

    I asked if he'd been in FWA before because in CWA it wasn't your pic base. Is that going off? But really, you knew you were stirring up pointless issues when you complained about a base pic for a character that's never even been in an FWA match. Use him or dont but you have him restricted to a manager for a team that is inactive. No one even knew Cody was Summers manager which should say enough about Summers being associated with Cody.

    Jam has settled back on PJ Black so I'll say no more.
