Without question, Drew Stevens possesses OW!’s most impressive physique. Because he’s such a poser, though, opponents tend to underestimate him, thinking he’s more bodybuilder than wrestler. It’s not long before Drew convinces them otherwise.
His nickname probably makes it a little obvious, “Hard Body” is in love with his physique and uses his arrogance and showboating to antagonize his opponents and get them off their game plan. His antics also, as stated above, usually cause opponents to let their guard down, enabling him to capitalize.
Drew Stevens, while very focused inside the ring and in the gym, is still young and somewhat immature. Unfortunately, his manager, Don Bling, is believed to be more or less punching his meal ticket while it lasts and isn’t really interested in developing his young charge. Stevens’ inexperience reveals itself most often when things aren’t going his way in the ring. While he prepares well before a match, he often struggles making adjustments when his game plan isn’t working and gets wrangled, leaving him vulnerable to any capable opponent. In the locker room, he’s known for being very laid back and easygoing but will sometimes blow people off if he thinks they’re not worthy of his attention at that particular moment. He picks his spots carefully though, choosing not to rile the giants like Ursa Major or Axl nor the more serious veterans like Midknight.
