Theme Music: "Tank!" by the Seat Belts
Ring Entrance: Tribal drums. Triumphant brass instrumental. “Tank!” by the Seat Belts brought “The Jersey Devil” Troy Matthews, with Saori Kazama by his side.

Troy was obviously up for this **** like nobody’s business. He tagged hands all the way to the ring and even did a lap around it, hitting up the guardrail crew, before rolling into the ring. He threw some kicks, then raised his fists, and beckoned to the back...

Finisher & Description: The Trendsetter (shining enzuigiri, delivered Muay Thai-style with his shin instead of his foot)
Does your wrestler have any special set-up for their finisher? Theatrics or a set-up move?: No, it can come at a moment's notice any time the opponent is on one knee, trying to get up to his feet, or otherwise has a leg available for Troy to hop off.
Special Moves: These are your awesome trademarks that are yours alone.

1.) Somersault plancha -- His high-spot of choice in singles matches. Not always used, but a definite crowd pleaser.
2.) Trojan Fall -- A Hector Garza-influenced corkscrew plancha to the outside of the ring. Troy only uses this in matches with multiple wrestlers, like a trios tag match.
3.) Tiger Suplex -- His "two-and-a-half-count" move. BIG crowd popper.
4.) Devil Bullet -- sliding kick to the face of a kneeling or sitting opponent. Also known professionally as the Bakatare Sliding Kick.

Every Match Spots: Most wrestlers have spots they pull off in the duration of 99.9999% of their matches - what's your guys?

Somersault plancha, Tiger Suplex, diving bodypress, working the legs and body with Thai kicks, crazy lucha sequence that ends up with Troy countering a lift with a bulldog or armdrag or something, getting his ass kicked for a little bit and crawling back to his corner towards Saori, calling for her to "START THE CHANT!", which cues her to start getting the crowd to chant for him
