Sample Photo of Character:
Submission specialist who has a background in MMA and Boxing.
Characteristics of Gimmick:
Knows a counter to just about every submission hold there is, However while he knows many counters and is a great striker, he can't match the sheer power that a big man will bring to a match and he can't fly around the ring with a high flyer and must rely on his ability to ground them.
Knight has trained for 10 plus years to hone his skills in boxing and MMA. However he has always had a love for professional wrestling and plans to take the next step in being considered the greatest fighter in the world.
Knight walks out onto the stage and quickly makes his way down the ramp, ignoring all the fans no matter what they do. He stops at the bottom of the ramp and jogs in place before jumping onto the ring apron and stepping through the ropes. Knight jumps up to the top turnbuckle and shadow boxes before taking off his robe and tossing it out of the ring as his music cuts.
Striker, Submission Specialist
Previous Injuries/Character Psyche:
Knight has issues with his left arm after years of MMA he broke it once and it was never the same. If the arm is attacked too often he may start to lose feeling in it. However his head is freaky strong so he could headbutt people and it will have little to no effect on him.
Very good and very fast striker.
Can use any part of his body as a weapon, making him extra dangerous.
Weak left arm from years of MMA fighting.
Plays by the rules: Knight refuses to break the rules and tends to fight fair as much as possible. This leaves him at a disadvantage in hardcore matches because he would prefer not to use a weapon in any fight, however if he has to he will.

We see a man who is sparring in a boxing ring with an older gentleman. The younger of the two ends up getting popped in the jaw and this causes him to lose it and connect with a Spinning Back Fist to the jaw of the older man.
The younger of the two quickly realizes what he's done and checks on him.
Bob! Bob! Are you okay? I didn't mean it!
Bob, as we now find out his name is slowly sits up.
Yeah. I'm alright Aaron. But you need to get those anger issues of yours under control.
We now know the younger of the two is our very own Aaron Knight.
I know, But luckily now that i'm a professional wrestler I can do that without fear of getting DQ'ed in a fight.
Bob slowly gets to his feet with the help of his sparring partner and the two exit the ring, both grabbing a bottle of water from near by.
And you will do great things there, Just like you did with boxing and MMA.
It just won't be the same not having you in my corner though.
Bob smiles and pats Knight on the back.
Aaron, you are like the son I never had and you don't need me in your corner to do great things. Besides you know I will always just be one phone call away.
Aaron smiles at this and takes a sip from the water bottle.
Thanks for the sparring session today. I needed it.
The two embrace with a hug as the scene fades to black.
