WRESTLER INFO

Name: Travis Knowles
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 283 pounds
Hometown: South Bethlehem, PA
Age: 22 (turns 23 on October 1st)
Handedness: left

Background: Knowles didn't have the best childhood. He bounced around foster homes and never really know who his real parents were. At 17, Matthews bumped into him after an AAWC show and took him under his wing. Knowles has been training with Shawn Matthews pretty much for the past 4-5 years. He's wrestled in some backyard leagues and in some mom and pop promotions, but NFW is his biggest federation to date. He's become a great all around wrestler... good at technical moves, and power/brawling moves. He's got a lot of charisma and intensity. He talks really fast, and can be too gimmicky at times... like the Rock.

Ring Attire: Black shiny pants. He wears a t-shirt to the ring, but then takes it off when he wrestles... t-shirt varies according to feud.

Looks: Very muscular physique. He's got dark brown hair that's a little past his shoulders. When he's not wrestling, he ties it back. He's got a very thin beard (like Charlie Salinger from Party of Five). He's got a pretty dark tan, even though he's from Bethlehem.

Theme Music: "One Step Closer" by Linkin Park

Ring Entrance: When he gets into the ring, he gets up on the bottom turnbuckle and spreads his arms showing his muscle, sorta like Triple H.

Style: Technical, but knows how to brawl.

Fifteen moves:
Samoan drop
German suplex
Belly to belly suplex
Double underhook powerbomb
Tilt-a-whirl suplex
Pumphandle slam
Double underhook suplex
Running shoulder block
Elbow from second rope
Big boot
Pedulum backbreaker
Fallaway slam
Knees to the stomach
reverse DDT
bulldog

Set-up move: boot to stomach

Finisher: Lifts the guy up in the air for a powerbomb, spins around twice, and drops him on the back of his head... uh, call it "THE TRUTH HURTS" I'll come up with something else later.

Strengths:
1. Very good technical wrestler/brawler.
2. Very young and determined
3. Resilient

Weaknesses:
1. His past
2. Too cocky for his own good
3. Very trusting of people despite his past... gets let down a lot.
