    Are you willing to write matches? Yes

    Writing Sample

    Rocko Daymon Sample

    Kerry Kuroyama Sample

    Wrestler(s) Information

    Team Name: Rain City Ronin
    Members: “The Undying” Rocko Daymon & “The Pacific Blitzkrieg” Kerry Kuroyama
    Height: 6’2” (Daymon) / 6’1” (Kuroyama)
    Weight: 246 lbs. (Daymon) / 229 lbs. (Kuroyama

    Hailing From: Seattle, WA

    Alignment: Face

    Gimmick: A master/student sort of tandem. Rocko Daymon is an experienced veteran of the ring with a profound level of dedication to the fighting spirit, on a path of constant self-improvement. His mission is to constantly raise the standards of honest, competitive professional wrestling while preserving the integrity of the sport. His protege, Kerry Kuroyama, is a third-generation wrestler, set on outshining his family legacy and following in the footsteps of his mentor. Under Rocko’s tutelage, he’s developed into a fine young athlete with a lot of promise. Rocko’s personality can be described as no-nonsense and a bit philosophical, while Kerry shows a bit more emotion and youthful light-heartedness. Basically, Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter, with about an 18-year age gap.

    Wrestling Style: Both all all-rounders, focused on strong-style puroresu. Rocko leans a bit more toward brawling and impact moves while Kerry specializes in submissions and shoot wrestling.

    Three Weaknesses:
    (Daymon)
    1. Showing signs of age and many years of abuse in the ring, and doesn’t quite have the stamina and strength he had in his peak years.
    2. Despite his experience, still thinks his will unbreakable, and thus often allows himself take far more punishment than he can actually withstand.
    3. Very much a product of “Attitude Era” wrestling trying reform his wrestling style to better compete against scientific-minded wrestlers with better technique.

    (Kuroyama)
    1. Not green, but still young at heart and occasionally brash and impulsive, so sometimes susceptible to distractions or letting his emotions get the best of him.
    2. Idealistic of the sport in general, and invests perhaps too much of his trust in opponents in the hopes that they won’t cheat.
    3. Takes big risks, sometimes with very little rewards. The kind of guy who would leave himself wide open trying to go for a knock-out punch.

    Three Strengths:
    (Daymon)
    1. Spent the past 17 years wrestling, and his wisdom and experience shows. There isn’t anything he hasn’t seen before.
    2. Keeps his focus and emotions in tact through almost anything, always determined to win and never giving in to excessive showboating.
    3. Pushes his limits in every match, fights tooth and nail, and absolutely refuses to give in until the bitter end.

    (Kuroyama)
    1. Despite his age, very adept at learning his opponent’s styles and adapting his own to give himself the advantage.
    2. Studied the sports since his teens, and comes equipped with a vast knowledge of technical wrestling.
    3. Slowly mastering the art of the second wind. Just when you think he’s out, he often finds a way to come back and even the odds.

    Re: Rain City Ronin

    I know you can write, Straw. I like that you applied with a tag team and that the tag team is Rocko and Kuroyama. But can you make DEFIANCE's deadlines on a consistent basis? Because that's important here.

    Re: Rain City Ronin

    I read the Bio and I liked the character's dynamic as being teacher/student.
    I'm am weary about what I'm hearing about missing deadlines and such.
    In DEF we set a Deadline and we're really good at putting out cards one time.
    So please make the deadlines that are established.
    I will give this a yes based on I like what the characters can be in DEF.

    Re: Rain City Ronin

    I like the name, I like the dynamic, and I like how I feel like they would fit right into DEF.

    I just need to hear you say you understand our need to keep on schedule, and you get my yes.

    Also, while we do keep a strict schedule, it's not weekly or even bi-weekly, we're adults, we understand. Things take time to put together, but once we go into production mode, we don't do "late," and you need to know that going in.

    So, say the words.
    Stand up. Defy!

    Good enough for me, with that in mind I vote yes on Strawbot.

    Re: Rain City Ronin

    Wait, what's the "Attitude Era?"



    I get a yes, with the contingency that he makes the deadlines like everyone else in this God forsaken place!
    Call it fate. Call it luck. Call it karma. I believe everything happens for a reason.

    Re: Rain City Ronin

    Not sure if this is my vote matters at this point, but I'm tossing a yes to this dude's way. I feel the strong style radiating off of these two gents and I think it'll make for a good addition to our tag division once as it starts to get off the ground. I'm excited to see what these characters can do

    Re: Rain City Ronin

    Yes, on the already clarified point that deadlines matter here and we won't hold up a show for a Straw epic, no matter how glorious it is :-)

    And per Lindz, get skype already Strawman.

    Skype account is just rrstrawsma.

    At the risk of sounding incredibly unhip, I don't really use Skype all that frequently, but will make an effort to get accustomed to it if that's what's required.
