WHO YOUR CHARACTER IS: After placing 1st - 3rd in various National and State Judo and Jiu-Jitsu tournaments, Gideon felt the uninspired with the sometimes-shady MMA game. Gideon departed for Japan, in an effort to transfer his MMA skill to the ring, being a fan of the strong style from a young age. After training for about a year and a half with various Japanese organizations, picking up the little nuances of the strong style, and a few high flying moves as well.. After wrestling for about 6-7 months in Japan, he moved back to the US, in the hopes of showing the fruits of his labor to an American audience.
Gideon wears a black and white coat to the ring with jet black shades in honor of his favorite stars Masahiro Chono and Keiji Mutoh. As far as ring attire, he wears leggings that employ the usage of a single crucifix, Kim's Judo in Korean and the color scheme black, red and navy blue. He usually has on red elbowpads and tapes his right wrist and all 10 fingers individually.
Wrestling wise he looks to wears his opponents down with various submission holds and chokes leading to the Final Judgment. Personality wise he doesn't take kindly to those who take this profession to be a joke (which is one of the reasons he wants to bring the strong style to an American audience) and if he is against someone he feels he is technically superior to may get cocky and "lock" certain moves - that is to say he wouldn't use the Final Judgment, and may try to put them away with just one of his signatures or a Judo/Jiu-Jitsu choke.
