    What is there to say about Dan Maskell that hasn't already been said? Those perhaps looking for a simple label might say volatile, psychotic, emotionally unstable, highly offensive and not too mention filled to the brim with toxic masculinity. Beneath these many, many dark layers however there is more to this at least some would perhaps choose to believe so. Growing up Dan was a boxing prodigy who came from a family whose name was well regarded across the boxing community. With the highest expectations placed on his shoulders as he looked to succeed everyone. Dan's world would soon come crashing down thanks to an altercation outside of the ring. This altercation with an old rival would see Dan at the ripe age of seventeen thrown into an adults prison. His prospects dashed and his dreams over. Dan would not only find himself abandoned by those who he loved, cared for and relied on. But he'd find himself betrayed behind bars countless times as he received numerous beatings and suffered many severe injuries. These experiences broke him and they very much made him a shell of himself.

    However as time went on and the beatings continued growing more severe. Dan found himself on the precipice of the abyss. He looked into the darkness and welcomed it's cold hands as it touched his heart. This would forever fracture the boy who went into prison with some saying he went in as a cocky kid and slowly metamorphized into a monster. Unrelenting, uncaring and very much willing to endure great pain if it meant proving a point. Dan's remaining time in prison was spent in solitary confinement after a series of violent altercations in which he showed himself capable of such horrific acts. On his release from jail Dan's attempts for reconciliation would be met with a door slammed in his face and he'd be forced to live on the streets. Similar to prison he'd be forced to look into himself and see the darkness within as he was forced to scratch and claw his way to survival.

    Fighting in bars and participating in numerous forms of underground combat. Dan's exploits in bare knuckle boxing, Lethwei and tough man contests would soon help him develop a reputation. One which travelled with him everywhere he went and one which would see a former veteran of the game desperate for a last touch of success opt to train Dan to become a wrestler. He may not have taken to it right away but Dan's dedication to training and his threshold for pain would make him push through all adversity as he made it to the ring. Yet even here he had a lot to learn as we'd see some questionable choices made by Dan. Part of this some believe was down to him needing money to feed his vices. As Dan uncharacteristically monikered himself under a showy patriotic brit character by the name of Danny "The Man" Maskell.

    Of course it wouldn't take long for the real Dan Maskell to please stand up. Soon thanks to his volatility and violent outbursts the fans of the independent circuit and the wrestlers alike would learn that Dan is no patriot. He doesn't stand for anything or fight for anything other than himself. After a successful run on the indies albeit with a lot of controversy thanks to his outbursts Dan made it to CWA with designs on proving himself to be the best... He wasn't! On his arrival Dan struggled and suffered numerous setbacks and defeats. Until finally it clicked and he put it all together. Rather than trying to control the beast inside like his instructor asked. Dan embraced it and released it onto his opponents. This would see him become the longest reigning High Voltage Champion in CWA history before he moved onto other ventures.

    Briefly it seemed around this time in his CWA run there might be some redemption for Dan. His tag team and 'apparent' friendship with Krash seemed to help Dan achieve some contentment in a life full of hate and loathing. He even began to reconcile with his family however it was his pursuit of the world championship held by his friend that brought all that to a halt. With his title win instead of showing respect we saw an ugly side of Dan's personality. An arrogance that had never quite showed and a sense of entitlement as he sought for everyone to see him as a role model. This was of course greatly hypocritical for someone with Dan's track record and history of violence to be proclaiming. Alienating anyone who had come to support him and root for him it appeared that just as Dan hit his highest the rug was pulled out from under him when he lost his title to Prince Pain.

    Adding to this was a rumored psychotic break and a noted drug test failure for Cocaine and one other unknown substance. This would see Dan depart the CWA under a black cloud and vanish into obscurity. Many wondered just where the Heretic had been with some wondering if perhaps away from the battlefield this warrior had finally found peace. Others wondered if perhaps his demons had finally caught up with him and he was perhaps dead in a gutter somewhere. The truth however as you'll come to find would tragically be a mixture of the two. As some animals cannot be caged and some monsters cannot be silenced!

    Current feuds:
    He hasn't got one just yet but he hates all of you already so be warned

    Non-FWA accomplishments:
    1x CWA World Heavyweight Champion
    1x CWA High Voltage Champion

    Style of wrestling:
    To put it in his words. He is the one and only practitioner of Mixed Maskell Arts. It's a combination of whatever it takes to kick your ass. While he maybe primarily a brawler who is quite adept to using his environment as a weapon. It has to be said that thanks to his almost sickening obsessive behavior. Dan has also become an adept technician when he wants to be with a penchant for submissions to boot.

    A minimum of five perfected moves your character does in a match (feel free to separate your moveset into categories ie basic strikes, signatures etc.):

    Russian Roulette (Inverted Headlock transitioned into a discus elbow to the back of the opponents head)
    Goodnight Sweet Prince (Back Suplex flipped into a lifted knee strike)
    Reap the Whirlwind (Feint Russian Legsweep twisted into a clothesline)
    Welcome to Blunderland (Multiple knee lifts to an opponent trapped in the ropes)
    Grand Slam (Running big boot to an opponent trapped in the ropes) ~ Usually follows the Welcome to Blunderland
    Long Road Back (Curb Stomp)
    The Texan Funeral (Sliding Lariat)
    Final Moment (Superkick)
    Gravity Crush (Running dropkick to an opponent's knee)
    Forever More (Repeated elbow strikes to the side of an opponents head while they are held in a crucifix position)
    Fantastic Five (Double Jab, Right straight, Left Hook and then a right cross to finish)
    Show me the meaning of being lonely (Arm trapped headbutts)
    The Lucker Lock (High Angle Cloverleaf)
    Field of Screams (Fuller Lock)
    London Dungeon (Stump Puller)
    The Killing Field (Grounded Hammer Lock Half Nelson with knee strikes to the face)
    One For Sorrow (Standing Arm Triangle Choke)
    Colombian Neck Tie (Standing Guillotine Choke)
    Red Rain of Pain (Single Leg Crab with repeated stomps to the back and side of an opponents head)
    Last Impression (Bulldog Choke)
    Regular Moves
    XYZ Crash (Regal-Plex)
    Ready or Not (Overdrive Neckbreaker)

    Home by Midnight (Turnbuckle exploder suplex)
    London Eye (Double Underhook back breaker)
    Game Time Son (Running neckbreaker)
    The Dark Side of The Moon (Fireman's carry Flapjack)
    Wrath of Lamb (Wrist Clutch Olympic Slam)
    Signature Moves
    Rain of Fire (Orange Crush Lungblower) - Used as a set up for Orange Wednesday
    The Hurt Locker (Fireman's Carry Gutbuster)
    Double Tap (Slingshot suplex)
    Back to the Future (Gutwrench Suplex)
    Red Light Special (Capture Death Valley Driver)
    Better Luck Tomorrow (Ace Crusher)
    Lake Shore Drive (Rolling Cutter)
    Maskell Millennium (Emerald Frowsion)
    Check Mate (Belly to Back Neck Breaker)

    A minimum of one finishing move, and a maximum of three:
    Big Ben Bash (Lifting Reverse Single Underhook DDT) - Can be performed from top rope
    Tramp Stamp (Northern Lariat)
    Orange Wednesday (Stretch Muffler)

    Dan's in ring attire is simplistic at best. As from his time in CWA has shown. Dan atypically will forego the standard in ring attire and compete in Black Jeans. Along with this he usually wears a pair of converse shoes and in honor of his past his hands are taped up to his mid forearm.

    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously
