Wrestler(s) Information

Please take note of a couple things. It is highly likely that a few roster members will critique your moveset. Please don't be offended. We take that shit seriously here - we don't want a moveset full of finishers and a finisher so ludicrously over-elaborate that it couldn't be done in real life. This goes double if you're applying as a female wrestler. We also check to make sure your finisher(s) and theme song aren't currently being used. It's first come first serve when it comes to those.

And if you're one of those handlers who hates doing movesets, just say so and Jeff will do it for you.

Ring Name: “All Killer, No Filter” Ryan Matthews
Height: 6’5”
Weight: 240 lbs

Hailing From: Cleveland, Ohio

Alignment: Heel

Gimmick: Matthews isn’t heavily gimmicked, never really felt he needed one and he’s pretty much just an asshole with the volume turned up to 11, he will do anything to get in his opponent’s head, and doesn’t believe in living life with a filter, which has lead to him getting in trouble with the FCC and several promoters

Wrestling Style: Time has grounded Matthews for the most part, his style is straightforward, creative brutality. He finds ways to hurt his opposition using himself, the ring and his surroundings to the highest of effectiveness.

Three Weaknesses:
Time is NOT on my side - Matthews has traveled the world for quite a few years and isn’t as much of a spring chicken as he used to be. Thus his stamina can’t always keep up with the younger guys for a hugely extended duration of a match.

High Rent is not My District - Despite his age, Matthews does occasionally attempt to pull out a high risk move every so often if he deems it potentially necessary. Of course there’s always the risk that he’ll crash and burn and when he does it’s often done spectacularly.

My Own worst enemy - Matthews tends to rub people the wrong way in and out of the ring, and despite the fact that it doesn’t matter to him personally, he tends to get a superhuman effort from his opponents who would like nothing better than to see him fail, not to mention the fans.

Three Strengths:
Method to the Madness - Matthews is very methodical and every move he makes in the ring has a purpose. He will ground his opponents and even if the match stays on their feet he will be resolute and merciless in his approach of hammering the hell out of them.

Gift of Gab - Matthews is very outgoing but has no real filter to what he says, he’ll trash talk with the best of them, and that makes the crowd remember him.

Psychological Warfare - Matthews has ways of finding things to make his opponent get off balance pyschologically, such as referring to them by their real name rather than ring name, but at times he simply picks at something that’s happened in their past to make them annoyed and angry to the point where they come at him all crossed up and he has the upper hand.


Ten regular moveset moves:

1)Snap Suplex
3)Backbreaker Stretch (delivers a backbreaker, then presses down on opponents chin and legs to stretch them across knee)
5)Northern Lights Suplex w/Bridge
6)Knee breaker (think Ric Flair style)
7)Short arm clothesline
9)Single leg Boston crab
10)Chop Block

2-5 trademark moves:

1)Mandala Hineri - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIyLgmBZJWM (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIyLgmBZJWM) - fast forward to 1:20
2)Koji Clutch
3)OFM (Oh, F$%k ME! - STO into Head and Arm Choke)
4)Tilt-A-Whirl Backbreaker
5)Indian Deathlock

1 Finishing Move: Dead Men Tell No Tales - Inverted Figure Four Leglock (See Corey Graves Lucky 13)

1 "MDK" (murderdeathkill) Finishing Move: Character Assassination - Spike Japanese Ocean Bomb

If Justin's cool with no writing sample since you've been here before, then I vote yes.
