eWrestling Experience: PTC (SCCW), UWF, NWC and CAL umbrella feds from back in the day, a few other unmentionables. I am the proverbial skidmark in the underwear of pretend wrestling.
How did you find Defiance? A couple of current roster members carelessly mentioned the fed on Twitter, attracting this scum to apply.


Writing Sample


http://gtt7.primetimecentral.net/content.php?p=rp&rp=986


I wrote this piece of shit for a PTC tournament. This is going to be fairly reminiscent of what you see from me (it's essentially combining this character with another character I've used with a few tweaks) if you choose to bring me aboard: complete and utter fucking nonsense. Some people are into it, though.


Wrestler(s) Information


Ring Name: Jetson
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 160 lbs.


Hailing From: Epcot Center, Florida


Alignment: Heel. Albeit a comedic, lovable heel.


Gimmick: Jetson, who in no way is related to the Hanna Barbara cartoon family of the same namesake, is from a futuristic planet where houses are built in the sky and cars can fly. Tragically, when he was 11, he ran away from home and ended up being sucked into a time warp, which propelled him to Orlando. He was then raised for the remainder of his childhood by staff members at Disney's Epcot Center -- again, COMPLETELY coincidental but conveniently works out to shape his character -- where he also took an active interest in professional wrestling by chance: since he lived in that giant silver ball thing at Epcot, the only TV show he could watch were some old VHS tapes of Thunder In Paradise starring Hulk Hogan.


Jetson then trained at a wrestling school that just happened to be in the Epcot Center to become the wrestling machine he is today. Even though he lost an impromptu match against the 19-year old girl who dressed as Belle from Beauty and the Beast before he left Epcot, he is ready to win and win a lot.


Wrestling Style: A huge part of Jetson's gimmick is that you would automatically assume that GUY FROM OUTER SPACE would be flipping everywhere and onto things AT ALL TIMES. Well, you are fucking WRONG. Jetson employs the lowest-risk offense possible to the point that it annoys people. While he will claim that it's because he's careful…see the strengths for more.


Three Weaknesses:
- Limited offense. While it can't be determined whether or not he is trolling audiences, he sticks to the game for the most part. (i.e. - If an opponent props him up on the top turnbuckle for a superplex and he fights out of it, he will scream and cry and ask for help down off the top turnbuckle. Which he'll end up getting by being thrown off of it.)
- A huge wuss. Despite appearing to be in great shape, he has a fairly low threshold for pain.
- Meticulous. The fact that he's often slow to capitalize on an opportunity can work horribly against him.




Three Strengths:
-Annoyingly cunning. As he has made being boring an art form by not using high-impact or illegal maneuvers, he knew that he'd have to be sneaky to actually pick up a win and move up the ladder.
- Eel-like. Can usually weasel his way out of submissions or find a quick retreat outside the ring if he's getting pummeled.
- Energy leech. Has an uncanny ability to quell an opponent who feeds off crowd energy, as he is quick to dim it down and put things back at a slow pace.


MOVESET


Ten regular moveset moves:


1) Side Headlock. (Will typically tell the referee while doing it that he is NOT choking the opponent, even though it is glaringly obvious that he isn't, because he doesn't want to get disqualified.)
2) Open-hand Strike. (Usually holds his hand up to everyone to show that it's not a closed fist.)
3) Bottom rope Axe Handle
4) Bottom rope Missile Dropkick
5) Bottom-rope Floating Clothesline
6) Hammerlock
7) Wrist-drag. Literally a shitty armdrag but grasping the opponent's wrist.
8) Atomic drop (which is done on the opponent's butt cheek to "lesson the hurt")
9) Bottom-rope body press
10) Stomp (but does not actually stomp on the opponent, just lightly steps on them.)


2-5 trademark moves:


1) Space Cowboy – Teases a Bronco Buster, but instead just jumps on the ropes next to the opponent's head. Is actually effective as the vibration does ram the back of the opponent's head into the turnbuckle.
2) Super Spinning Flying Saucer Splash - Jetson just does a 360 degree turn on the mat, then falls on the opponent. Note that he doesn't spin midair on the splash, he actually just spins in a circle while standing and then falls on the opponent. This has been dubbed the worst move ever by many.
3) Starscream - Jetson screams in the opponent's ear. He thinks that this will one day be enough for an opponent to tap out due to the pain, but it really just makes them mad as hell.




1 Finishing Move:
Down to Earth – Inverted CHIKARA special, deemed inescapable, and is how this snooze-fest wrestler manages to win matches, as he'll apply it out of nowhere.

I worked with Jake WAAAAAAAAAAAY back when in the NWC/CAL dizzays (Rhett. Fucking. Moonstar.) and I can personally vouch for his quality.

YES.

Also, I need to get another pair of pants.

I'll be honest, this is absolutely hilarious and if we were still an rp fed, I would be 100 percent yes. That said, I'm not sure where or how this guy would fit into DEFIANCE.

Did you handle Spacely in SCCW?

I'm voting yes regardless.

I did! Although I think it would be pretty hilarious if I just stole Spacely's gimmick and tried to pass it off with this new character. Not because I condone stealing other's ideas, but because it's a stupid character to mimic.

I will say that segging is really my bread and butter. And I am definitely aware of how HORRENDOUS it is for some people to have to work with a comedy character when they work a serious character, but I generally make it as easy on them as possible. I have zero problems bending, breaking, or spilling to make a storyline work, and if I have to tweak the character to do that, so be it.

God, I sound like a pandering, desperate ass, don't I?

Goddammit, Jake.

(I have a feeling I'll be saying that a lot).

(This is also a "Yes.")

It's a yes from me. I think that the character would be golden against some of the SUPER SRS WRASSLERS in DEF, and I know Jake's work from PTC. Two thumbs-up.

I'm already imagining the fits he'd give Jason Antsa and Curtis Penn.

No, because all the usual reasons I vote no and nobody ever listens to me anyway.

Jake is good people. I vote yes.

I am also voting yes. Solid app.

So far, the vote is 6-2 in favor, not counting my kinda-sorta yay/nay vote.

My initial question still stands.

What kind of an angle is George Jetson going to get into in DEFIANCE?

I see your point. Admittedly, this would be an experiment, where it's essentially a merging of two characters I've played in the past but it's starting to become kind of clear that it makes for an idea that could either get old fast and/or back it into a corner.

Maybe I could re-apply with a different character? I would probably want to keep consistent with the move set and instead of him being "wacky guy from space," he's a more workable and flexible heel who just uses awful moves as a part of a moral crusade against violence.

Of course you can re-apply. You appear to be a good writer and have a bunch of people who are already vouching for you.

As for a slightly altered gimmick. I could see Cactus Jack in ECW, trying to be anti-violence against Tommy Dreamer, faking like he's going to do something big and then he doesn't.

That sort of gimmick could work on all levels here, at least I think so. The "DEFIANCE fanbase" would boo that guy, Angus would hate him for sure.

Though I might suggest you bring this guy in, he starts off "normal" for one arc, he doesn't have to be some giant spotmonkey or nothing, he could even show shades of what he's to become. Let that simmer for an arc and then boil over at the blow off, then come back the next arc with this anti-violence moral crusader.

I actually love this direction.

I will do some tweaking and re-apply tonight.
