    I was going for this. I spoke to Sully privately about it, as I wasn’t sure whether I had to already have a character to do this. If I find myself having a bit more time over the summer then I’ll maybe sign up for FWA properly and just copy this across but just helping Sully out for the time being and thought it would be fun to put forward a funny character.

    Thanks though, Sayer. I’ll hit you up if I do sign up and need some help (I probably will).

    Character name:
    Stu Grimes.

    Height: 7'5".

    Weight: 480lbs.

    Birthday/Age: 4th July, 1940 (age: 50 - was cryogenically frozen between the years 1978 and 2008).

    Hometown: Nashville, Tennessee.

    Billed From: Straight out of the past.

    Alignment (Cheer or Boo): Cheer.


    Backstory:
    Stu Grimes has done it all. He has had #1 hit records on the US Billboard Country Albums charts, had box office smash hit movies (mostly as hired muscle in 60s/70s gangster films), written four best selling novels and two memoirs, and is a former boxing heavyweight champion of the world (WBO, WBC, and IBF). He has climbed Mount Everest and swam the English Channel. In 1964, he flew around the world in 79 days, because fuck Jules Verne. He has made love to the most beautiful men and women in the world, completed DJ residencies in Ibiza, and was the owner and head cultivator on the world's largest hemp farm, twenty miles south of Den Haag.

    However, Grimes' fortunes took a turn for the worse in 1975, when - after an impassioned sales pitch from a Japanese friend - he invested almost all of his wealth in Sony's Betamax cassette format. Within three years, he was almost broke, and only had enough money left to cryogenically freeze himself. Ashamed of his losses and his shortcomings, he climbed into his capsule for thirty years, hoping for a future where Betamax had persevered and defeated VHS. But, when he awoke, a brave new world - a world that he didn't understand - awaited him. Instead of millions of dollars waiting for him in his bank, he found only debts. He didn't even have enough cash left to invest in HDDVD, an exciting new laser-disk format that he felt sure would soon be found in every media shop worldwide...

    After twelve years of scrubbing around, making a living in whatever way he can, Stu Grimes has decided to return to the top of the world once more. In the only profession that doesn't seem to have changed at all over the last forty years: professional wrestling.

    Gimmick: Ageing old timer who wants one more shot at the big time.

    Style of wrestling: Brawler, boxing background, slow and steady and with lots of heart.

    Move list:
    Hooks and jabs and uppercuts for strikes - no kicks.
    Vertical suplex.
    Snap DDT.
    Gorilla press slam.
    Fallaway slam.
    HD-Death Valley Driver.
    Bearhug.
    Abdominal Stretch.
    Powerbomb.

    Finisher(s) Maximum of 3:
    Max-out (The Last Ride).
    Moonsault.

    Base pic for your character: Andre the Giant.

    Theme music: Layla (piano exit only) - Derek and the Dominos.

    I can't compete with Sauce Man but I can certainly try. Attempt #1!



    Character name: "Cool Stepdad" Phil Miller.
    Height: 5 ft 10
    Weight: 199lbs
    Birthday/Age: March 23rd, 1978 (42)
    From: Detroit, Michigan
    Alignment: Cheer, probably? Depends how you feel about dad jokes.
    Backstory: Phil's a pretty normal guy. Twice divorced, works 9-5 Monday to Friday as an accountant for a medium-sized agency in Detroit, and recently married a sweetheart he met on a dating site that he's at least 70% certain is The One. Well on the way to the perfect suburban lifestyle he's always desired! Except for one thing.

    His betrothed has a son from a previous marriage, a 21-year-old upstart currently making waves in the Michigan wrestling scene as Brent "The Inner-City Vandal" Spindle. And unfortunately, Brent hasn't accepted his new stepdad as quickly as Phil hoped. So, in an effort to connect to his new stepson, Phil decided to sign up for FWA's Ground Zero to make it as a wrestler and win the love of his wayward stepson. I mean, he's dabbled with college football and could've gone pro if it wasn't for his bum knee. He's been in his fair share of kiddy-league soccer brawls with an umpire who clearly had a bias for the other team. How hard can wrestling be?

    Gimmick: Suburban Stepdad. Not a good wrestler, or even an average wrestler. Doin' it for his stepson. Fond of dad jokes and advice that isn't as helpful as he thinks.
    Style of wrestling: Brawler.
    Move list: Time Out (Bear hug) - Your Daddy Now (Big Boot)
    Finisher: Tough Love (DDT)
    Base pic for your character: Joey Abs
    Theme music:



    EDIT: And if you need a coach I can throw Krash into the mix (really scraping the bottom of the barrel but yeah)

    223 Ibs

    Birthday/Age:33

    From (City, State, Country): Doi Ang Khang by way of Manhatten, New York

    Alignment (Cheer or Boo): Boo

    Backstory/Gimmick:Danny Knox was a fairly decent regional wrestler in the new york scene, with lofty dreams and ambitions in pro wrestling, only problem was, he was at the jobber to the star level at best, he couldn’t buy a win, he tried everything, face turns, heel turns. Boxing training, nothing worked. It got to the point where Danny sought out spiritual means to get ahead in wrestling; he looked through the bible, the hebrew verses, the koran. Nothing helped him..until backpacking through Thailand and studying the ancient Sutras of the great Buddha he stumbled across a passage undiscovered by historians said to be written by Buddha himself, that the only way to true enlightenment and tranquility...is cheating in wrestling matches, taking these words to heart, Danny Knox was reborn as Guru Quang the high priest of Peace, meditation and low blows, a wrestling monk.

    Style of wrestling (brawler, high flyer, technical, etc.):
    Following his religious beliefs the Guru follows the tried and tested Dryer method of cheating like an absolute bastard.

    Move list
    -Tilt a whirl Slam
    - Eye Rake
    - Repeated Face Stomps
    - Corner Choke
    - Sliding Dropkick to the groin of a seated opponent
    - Camel Clutch with fingers in the opponent's
    --Whenever he feels the match starts getting away from him, he will put a stop to proceedings and insist that his opponent is cheating, using some kind of weapon, and insist that the ref checks his opponent for weapons and if he does? He will just blind side them, the second their guard is down, he blind sides them.

    Finisher(s) Maximum of 3:
    -The Third Eye- Sleeper Suplex
    -The Tathagata of Unhindered Light that Penetrates the Ten Quarters-Sweep kick to the dick followed by a roll up pulling on the tights

    STEVE THE TECHNO VAMPIRE


    Spoiler:



    Name: Steve The Techno Vampire

    Height: 6’0

    Weight: 240 Ibs

    Birthday/Age:44

    From (City, State, Country): “THE OTHER SIDE OF DARKNESS”

    Backstory/Gimmick: Steve is well known to FWA officials, it is a custom in the wrestling business -Or at least it was before NGW stream lined the process- for undiscovered talent to send in videos and tapes into the FWA office in order to score some kind of audition or try out;

    To date, in the last eight years, Steve the dancing vampire has sent in 239 different audition videos, none of which features him wrestling, instead every tape featured a balding middle age man dressed in strange vampire gauge, dancing enthusiastically to the same bizarre techno song about being a vampire in what appears to be some dimly lit basement...and that’s about it. It should noted in the actual videos themselves, he calls himself “BLACKFIER, LORD OF THE ETERNAL NIGHT” But FWA officials gave him the name “Steve” after in one of the videos an elderly woman, we can only presume is his mother screamed down at him, that his ex wife is on the phone worried about him. (To which he replied; SHUT UP, MOM. I’M BUSY BEING A VAMPIRE-!”

    FWA officials decided to cut him a break and offered him a slot on the show, if nothing else to stop the cringe.

    Style of wrestling (brawler, high flyer, technical, etc.):
    Technical unorthodox style

    Move list:

And after he’s done slamming his foes until their bones are turned into powder. He then retires for the evening with a glass of fine port, a Jane Austin Novel next to an open fire place and waxes poetic about how the destruction he has caused has parallels to Shakespeare's Macbeth, namely Act 1, in which etc etc etc

    Style of wrestling: Sun Tzu, wrote the art of war, a step by step masterpiece in how to win in battle. The Sceming Behemoth has begun writing his own version of the art of war.

    You have now mastered the art of war.

    -It starts off with a falling spinebuster towards the center of the ring and moves to stand in front of the opponent flat on his back. off with the glove and into the crowd it goes,off the ropes, dancing.off the other ropes, WOOOOOOO, grab his crotch, pelvic trust and pose, then drop the elbow

    Moonwalk DDT - Now, you might be thinking “hey, the DDT is a pretty basic move, there’s no way it can be devastating in 2019, well that’s where you’re wrong, much like when John Cena waves his hand in front of his face before hitting someone, or when Scotty 2 Hotty does the worm to set up a falling open hand slap. By the same laws of physics, Gene does a flawless moon walk to build up an insane about of momentum, to spike his foe into the mat

    LIZZIE ROSE
    Spoiler:


    Character name: “Lizzie Rose"
    Height: 5’2
    Weight: 99 Ibs
    Birthday/Age:21

    From (City, State, Country): “Manhattan, NYC, USA”

    Alignment (Cheer or Boo): Cheer

    Backstory/Gimmick: Standing a staggering five feet and two inches, looking like one of the wrestlers twelve year old daughters, Lizzie’s entire wrestling career is an accident. She never planned to be a wrestler, the thought has never even begun to to cross her mind. She was perfectly happy with her dead end job in the video store making obscure sci-fi references that no one would remotely get browsing through Internet wrestling forums and eating pizza, and letting her obsession with 90’s culture shine through However her life changed when she was contacted to be apart of a documentary about independent wrestling in New York and they wanted segments with various fans Naturally Rose was only too happy to compile, and the documentary turned out to be a great success….and one of the key aspects that made the documentary so popular was Lizzie herself. A lot of her footage was used in the final cut and wrestling fans all over the world couldn’t help be utterly charmed by her unique and quirky personality, the internet wrestling community more or less adopted her and she became something of the face of wrestling geekdom, gifs. She made some dosh showing up at wrestling events, reporting on various wrestling shows for blogs if things kept like that who knows? Until the day she took up training in wrestling and challenged Daphne Shelly to a match, a match where Daphne utterly dominate Lizzie, beating her from pillar to post, but Liz kept getting up for more, no matter how much Daphne threw at her. Daphne was finally able to get the pin, but during the course of the match, She earned her respect and they were able to form, a strange yet powerful friendship, Shelly’s Gothic nature counteracting Lizzie’s geeky personality. To the point where Daphne-Who lets be honest was the real talent FWA wanted- insisted on having her best friend be in the house with her- With one contract on offer, can the ultimate underdog shock everyone by winning the whole thing? Will her friendship with Daphne survive when she’s competing against her friend? Can the other girls survive her nose bleeds and constant duck related night terrors?

    Style of wrestling: Very basic athletic wrestler, often colliding into her opponents with jobber like offense able to use her speed and size to evade attacks. Will often get the piss knocked out of her often showing a ton of heart and somehow keep going like a modern day Mikey Whipwreck, she’s not the biggest or the toughest but it’s near impossible to break her spirit .

    Arm Drag

    JOHNATHAN MCCLEAN
    Spoiler:



    Character name: “Johnathan “Squeaky” McClean”
    Height: 6’0
    Weight: 202 Ibs
    Birthday/Age:34
    From (City, State, Country): “Toronto, Canada
    Alignment (Cheer or Boo): Boo.

    Backstory/Gimmick:
    -Not only a wrestler but A Published author whose self help book entitled “Living McClean” is currently ranked 1039th on amazon’s self help in the Canadian section,
    -”The Cleanest Wrestler In professional wrestling” Whatever that means
    -Regularly maintains a blog on tumblr dedicated to his thoughts on healthy living, politics and his signature “Gross fat person of the week”
    -Wrestling, premier lifestyle coach
    -Collegiate amateur wrestler
    -Still lives with his mother
    -Doesn’t drink
    -Doesn’t do drugs
    -Doesn’t stay up after nine o’clock
    -has never disappointed his parents
    -Is a very “Good boy”

    Style of wrestling: When it comes to Jonathan McClean, it’s easy to judge a book by it’s cover but underneath the over the top persona is a master craftsman : McClean is a typical collegiate amateur wrestler. An old school kind of style. He’d smother you on the ground and pick a body part apart with basic holds. Is it particularly exciting to watch? Not really. If McClean had his way every one of his matches would consist of nothing but chain wrestling and end with a headache, that’s not to say doesn’t have a collection of killer suplexes in his locker. But for the most part he generally enjoys a low energy style of wrestling If you show any type of weakness or flaw, he'll waste no time in meticulously & viciously picking you apart,

    Of course McClean claims to be “The Cleanest wrestler in the world, and while he does indeed play a “Clean” game he does it in the most annoying way possible, for example when his opponent reaches the ropes, he will instantly breaks and yell at the top of his voice “I BREAK ON ONE!” and pump his fists like he just won the gold medal;

    .A Common tactic he employs is every time someone tries to grapple with him, he will, if possible, run away and jumps outside the ring, or he'll seek refuge of the ropes, ducking his head through them to make the ref step in and force the foe off him, BECAUSE MCCLEAN PLAYS BY THE RULES. McClean does this EXCESSIVELY to the point that the foe winds up expending a lot of energy trying to chase him down or gets super frustrated to the point they make a mistake and he capitalizes.

    ...Also while he talks to the ref and basically sucks up to him,out side of the ref’s view he will dig his foot into his opponents throat

    Move list:
    - Drop toe hold
    -Precise kicks and strikes
    - Spinning heel kick
    - Headlock
    - High Knee followed immediately by a Russian Legsweep
    -CHINLOCK OF DOOM
    - Death Valley Driver

    - Thrusting Side Kick
    - Snap German Suplex
    - Shining Triangle (running start, triangle choke)
    -Canadian Suplex- clubbing blow to the back of the head, following by a straitjacket german suplex;
    -Rolling Elbow, Clean Shot

    Finisher(s) Maximum of 3:
    The Clean Sweep- McClean stands side-by-side with his opponent, then drops backward with a Russian Legsweep to take his opponent to the mat; he maintains his grip on the opponent, rolling through into a Crossface by locking his hands across their face to wrench back on their neck, while trapping their closest arm between his legs to prevent them from escaping.
    -Sometimes performs a springboard version by sitting his opponent on the middle rope, facing out to the crowd, before executing the Russian Legsweep,

    - Will sometimes go for the Crossface as a countermove or reversal without the Russian Legsweep as a set-up.

    -The Cleaning Press (?)- The Cleaning press is the wrestling equivalent to big foot, or a UFO sighting.

    Since the dawn of his career, McClean has, through methodical research, meditation and drinking smoothies with all natural fruit. He has developed a perfect submission hold that contorts the body in such a way that not only impossible to escape but also puts so much pressure on the majority of the pressure points of the body, that opponents almost always taps out within seconds to avoid ALL four limbs to break instantly and shitting themselves at the same time, This hold McClean has dubbed “The Cleaning Press” is so deadly. In 2010 he made Cyrus Truth himself tap out before he was carried out of the arena coughing blood.

    You might be thinking; “Holy shit, that sounds amazing, with a move like that in his locket, how can anyone beat McClean?!” And you’d be right he’d be near unstoppable if he did have such a move...Problem is, very few people believe that he does.

    No one has ever see him perform the move.

    Or sure he’s attempted to finish a match with some kind of submission, but, even he doesn’t seem to know how to put it on, sometimes he’d start at the head, or the arm...maybe it’s the leg. It’s gotten to the point where McClean has put crib notes in his knee pads to know exactly how to put it on. It’s VERY complex and time consuming. But one day, he’s going to put it on someone.

    Character name:
    Daphne Shelley

    Height:
    5 ft 9 in

    Weight: 143 lbs

    Birthday/Age:
    14th of May, 1996 (24)

    From (City, State, Country):
    Manhattan, NYC, USA

    Alignment (Cheer or Boo):
    Cheer

    Backstory: Daphne was always one of the weird kids in school, always a part of drama clubs, with a love for literature, cinema, theater and music, mostly the darker and edgier kind. Her gothic nature mixed well with the idea of violence and Daphne found herself in the world of professional wrestling. And she wanted no more than to be at the top company, even if her ticket to FWA would came with participating in a reality show. Daphne will just show everyone how real she is.

    Gimmick (if there is any to detail): On the surface, Daphne looks like your average goth girl, wearing dark colours and dying her hair. She is abrasive, will not hesitate to stand up for herself. And yes, she can be a little too sarcastic for her own good, maybe to a point where people can call her an asshole. But inside her ribs stands a golden heart. She can be an absolutely sweetheart to people who she considers friends and she will always stand up for them too. She is fiercely loyal to what she considers friends, even went on her way to get Lizzie Rose accepted to Ground Zero Season 2. And most importantly, Daphne can not tolerate injustice, be it done to her or anyone else in her presence. Though, that being said, she isn't above cheating herself, does it only when going against other cheaters, though.

    Style of wrestling (brawler, high flyer, technical, etc.): Mostly a jack of all trades, slightly leaning brawler

    Move list (can be as detailed or undetailed as you want, but try to at least give a couple of signature moves):

    Suicide Dive
    Backstabber
    Scissors Kick
    Bicycle Kick
    Spinning Back Elbow
    Diving Elbow Drop
    Springboard Knee Smash
    Hurricanrana
    DDT
    Reverse DDT
    Boston Crab
    Cloverleaf
    Dragon Suplex
    Low Blow (when she decides to cheat)

    Finisher(s) Maximum of 3:

    The Red Death (Curb Stomp)
    To Knee or Not To Knee (Kami-goye)
    Cross Armbreaker

    "HE'S
    THE BOGEY MAN, AND HE'S COMING TO GETCHA


    Character name: "The FORE Horse Man`" Putter Green
    Height: 6ft
    Weight: 212lbs
    Birthday/Age: 37
    From: Portland, Oregon.
    Alignment: Boo, but please no crowd sound. Just clapping

    Backstory: Ever since he was a child Putter Green had a dream, to be in a very sperfic sport, a sport a lot of people called stupid, that wasn’t to be taken seriously. And didn’t really seem to qualify as a full sport…

    ….Professonal Golf. What? What sport did you think I was talking about?

    There was only one problem; He sucked at it. Bad. Golfing a handicap of -36 all of his games seemed to go the same way, he would tee off and somehow always always always end up in a sand trap, and no matter how much he hacked, no matter what club, no matter what technique that ball would not move..and after a certain point, Putter would snap, his infamous temper kicking in and he’d swing that golf club around looking to hit the first person he sees, until security literally carried him off the course.

    Fortunately an FWA official saw his talent for violence and quickly signed him up for the show

    Gimmick: An embittered golfer who always ends up in the sand traps and so takes out his anger by wrestling

    Style of wrestling: Garbage brawler/hardcore- He’s not a wrestler in anyway shape or form and the trainers on the show will have quite a time on their hands to train him up, but he is a street fighter with a lot of balls. The Bogey man putt of tea is brawling, no if ands or putts when he starts throwing fists all bets par off, and when he starts throwing that club around watch out.

    Move list:
    Right hook
    Chop
    Armbar

    German Suplex
    Running Knee Strike
    Elbows to the Gut
    Headbutt
    . Kneebar
    Clothesline
    Forearm Strike
    Gut Kick
    Left Hook
    Suplex
    Knee to Gut
    Birdie- Over The Top Rope Senton
    Teeing off- Multiple stomps in the corner
    Driving low- Gut kick to a foe hanging over the top rope-Ala Bob Holly

    Finisher: Hole In One-Rope Hung DDT
    -Assault with a Golf Club (Illegal Move)
    Figure Fore- Figure Four Leg Lock

    Character name: Janet Shelley

    Height: 5 ft 11 in

    Weight: 154 lbs

    Birthday/Age: 8th of December, 1975 (44)

    From (City, State, Country): Manhattan, NYC, USA

    Alignment (Cheer or Boo):
    More likely to get boo's due to 'wants to block her daughter from achieving her dreams' plot she has with Daphne.

    Backstory: The only child of her father, Janet was pressured to continue the family business, which she did. She also got involved with a man before her 20th birthday and gave birth to his daughter, which Janet named 'Daphne' by herself after her father ran away without looking back. Growing up, Daphne became very similar to her mother in terms of style and intelligence which made the now head of the family business Janet very proud, until Daphne proclaimed she wanted to be a wrestler instead of continuing the family business. Since Ground Zero is the most important way for Daphne to achieve her dreams of being a wrestler, Janet too pulled a few strings and signed herself up for the competition, so she can win it instead of her daughter who will have to took over the family business after her if she doesn't win the competition. Even though she will treat the competition more like a reality show rather than a wrestling competition, Janet took a few martial arts classes on her own during her youth and still practices them to this day, so she can definitely hold on her own in the ring, not to mention she practiced some basic wrestling moves too in her preparations. She may or may not have entered the competition to also spend a little more time with her girl. Daphne is growing so fast, after all...

    Gimmick (if there is any to detail): An alpha mom with a sharp wit and tongue. She will probably be more friendly with other competitors than Daphne, maybe giving the other women some advice and things like that. She is also still single, so expect her to hit on other competitors (and maybe even coaches) too, men or women, doesn't matter for Janet. Expect her to drink a lot of wine too. Her general attitude is nearly a carbon copy of Daphne's, only a little bit more jaded and bitchy.

    Style of wrestling (brawler, high flyer, technical, etc.): The best fit is technical and brawler hybrid, I suppose. Capable of doing great grapples and great strikes for a woman of her age.

    Move List:

    Hip Toss
    Arm Drag
    Arm Bar
    Roundhouse Kick
    Leg Sweep Kick
    Knife-Edge Chop
    Vertical Suplex
    DDT
    Uppercut
    Spinning Heel Kick

    Finisher(s) Maximum of 3:

    Rear Naked Choke
    Spike Piledriver

    Base pic for your character:
    Eva Green

    (P.S: Gave Daphne's theme to Janet, Daphne will have her old theme song back.)
