    36

    Billed From:
    London, England

    Heel

    Gimmick/Background:
    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
    1x CWA Tag Team Champion w/Krash
    1st Ever CWA Triple Crown Champion
    Plus numerous world title wins in independent promotions such as CWW, ECCW, 3XW and EFNW

    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.):

    Strikes
    Russian Roulette (Inverted Headlock transitioned into a discus elbow to the back of the opponents head)

    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)

    Show me the meaning of being lonely (Arm trapped headbutts)
    Submissions
    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)

    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)

    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)

    Attire:
    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

    Gimmick/Background
    When it comes to his background there are some doubts in regards to just who the real Nathan Miles Anthony is. A one time youtuber and wannabe social media influencer, Nathan is very much the epitome of someone who will do anything he can in order to get famous. At one time boasting of a college scholarship based on his athletic credentials. Nathan is said to have tried many ways to get his name out there. This includes Youtube pranks and also podcasts. Along with this it is believed if you talk with him Nathan has attended and participated in many auditions for starring roles in TV and on the big screen. Yet for one reason or another (ego, lack of talent and just generally being him) he hasn't yet landed that big role. This is what has brought the attention whore and wannabe star into contact with Dan. As desperate for TV time, Nathan has been forced to accept the one job no one wants as Dan's assistant. How the so called uber professional Nathan will coexist and survive under Dan remains to be seen. But make no mistake, as bad as Dan is as a person. There is no question Nathan is using Dan just as much in order to get his name out there and his profile raised.

    Wrestling Style
    A show off of the highest order, it's said if Nathan could stop trying to see his name in the lights. He'd probably stop waking up looking at them after a match. An overboard showman who cannot resist taunting and posing, Nathan's arrogance is definitely his downfall. Which is quite the shame as along with being quite the athlete. Nathan is said to be a proficient technician who lately has shown himself to be equally adept in the striking game namely with his kicks.

    Strikes
    3D Crush (Running Single Leg Dropkick to the back of an opponent's head)
    Thunder Crash (Springboard Dropkick to the side of a downed opponent's head)
    Dancing Bullets (Bicycle high knee)
    Friendly Fire (Punt Kick)
    Batting Practice (Discus Lariat)
    Animal Instincts (Drop toe-hold into the turnbuckles followed by kicking the second rope into the opponent's throat)
    Old School Beats (Side hammerlock transitioned into a short-range lariat)

    Submissions
    Devil's Invitation (Russian legsweep floated over into a bridging cobra clutch)
    Be-Dazzler (Fisherman buster followed into a guillotine choke)
    Chiropractor (Rope hung surfboard)
    Sychosymatic (Leaping twisting crucifix armbar, sometimes off the top rope)
    One Way Ticket (Rolling Calf Slicer)
    Pop Your Collar (Camel Clutch)

    Regular Moves
    Teardrop (Rude Awakening)
    Party Crasher (X Factor)
    Silver Platter (Headlock Driver)
    No Foreplay (Flipping northern lights suplex transitioned into a jackknife pin)
    Repeat Offender (A double leg takedown transitioned into a high-speed stomp to the abdominal region )

    Signature Moves
    The Check Up from the Neck Up (Swinging Reverse STO)
    Night Rider (Backpack stunner)
    Run for Shelter (Running Inverted Overdrive)
    Bearing the Cross (Straight Jacket Neckbreaker)
    House Call (Spinning Inverted facelock elbow drop)
    The Prequel (Snap DDT to a kneeling opponent)

    Finishing Moves
    Optical Fiber Cross Bomber (Leaping Double Foot Stomp)
    The World is Mine (Tiger Driver 98) - Used on Special Occasions

    Attire
    Very much a style conscious individual Nathan very much dresses in many of the latest fashion trends. Known at times for wearing garish if not deeply bold colors. When it comes to his ring gear, this is very much reflective. Opting for what can only be described as half tights (The Zack Ryder ones) in a variety of colors, usually adorned with a star with his name in the center on the back. Nathan's entrance attire usually seems him wear a matching colored jacket adorned with an airbrushed picture of himself on the back. Along with this, when Nathan is around a pair of flashy sunglasses are sure to be close by.

    Re: New Beginnings ~ "The Heretic" Dan Maskell


    Name:
    Ryan Andrews

    Nicknames:
    The Great Red Dragon
    The Punisher

    Height:
    6 foot 7 inches

    Weight:
    250 Pounds

    Age:
    35

    Billed From:
    Dublin, Ireland

    Alignment:

    A heel albeit one with more slightly justifiable reasoning.

    Gimmick/Background
    In the early going if a comparison was made to their relationship. One would say that Ryan Andrews was the Sundance kid to Dan's Butch Cassidy. A pair of wild stallions who managed to bring the worst out of one another in the best of ways and vise versa. Yet as time went on and Dan continued to perhaps fall into or further embrace the darkness. We'd see Ryan actually mellow and even find contentment in his home life. Now a proud father and doted husband, Ryan has been looking to support his family as best they can through some harder times in their life. This is why despite him having stepped away from the business and finding some success as a contractor. Ryan would put pride to the side and be pulled back in briefly under the service of one Craig Owens. While Ryan may not have lasted long under Craig Owens, it is this return to the business which has firmly reunited him and Dan. Albeit with many difference from their previous association.
