I'm combining these three topics here as a more GENERAL hub of info to get when considering a character for this odd little attempt of a show I'm gonna try to make, as I feel like it'll be more simple to keep things here. This post will be a Doozy and will be updated as more questions and information comes up. So without further ado.

This is Grappling of Glory, a showcase of AES' finest Superstars taking place every two months at one of four popular venues in Japan (we'd go for more but amazingly, we do have a budget to keep!). In these kinds of shows, we present to our lovely audience to a Hybrid Style of wrestling which includes not only Pro Wrestling, but also MMA Style Shoot fights!

With that said, we welcome any of AES' talent who wish to show the die-hard fans of Japan just what they're made of! That's right! From some old legends to the rising stars! However, it is greatly recommended that these wrestlers debut in another major show before considering competing in the GLORY Ring. We want to think of this as a kind of Japan Tour or something to that degree! (the pilot of GoG does count even if it's non Canon)

Grappling of Glory currently consists of 5 divisions, which is as shown below.

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
  Super Heavyweight (400 lbs+) Division
Heavyweight (230 lbs - 400 lbs) Division
Jr. Heavyweight (<230 Lbs) Division
Tag Team Division
Mr./Ms. No Days Off


Wrestlers can move up and down divisions as they please, but must relinquish their title if they are doing so and are the champion of the division they are currently in. They also, obviously,
have to make weight by the time their new division match takes place. Wrestlers can hold Singles and Tag Titles Simultaneously.

Here are the simple rules to pro wrestling matches.

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
  -Matches have a 20 minute time limit unless stated otherwise.
-Triple Threat matches now include a TKO stipulation in the interest of time. (This is subject to change as i would have to take the time to test that out)
-If a winner isn't decided once the time limit has been reached, the judges will decide the winner.


Now with that out of the way, let's get to the sign ups

Nickname:
Hometown:
Weight: (lbs)
Height: (Ft))
Theme:
Backstory:
Gimmick/Moveset ideas: (it helps me flesh out yer moveset more)
Face/Heel:

Appearance: pic base please.

Tag Team Sign Up:
Team Name:
Members:
Theme:

there are no limits and the most i can get in this roster is a number. yeah. yes this is canon this time.

Below are the planned shows and the Dates in Which They'll Happen maybe

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
  
July 2017 - We Are The Champions
A simple name for the simple premise of crowning champions for all current divisions. The idea here is to let wrestlers who are signed with GoG do their thing in their own feds, depending on their performances they may end up getting title shots and stuff. Title matches will most likely be influenced by Sam's Power Rankings here. Of course there are possible dream matches to fill the middle of the card, which i hope will become a norm for GoG.

September 2017 - Total Elimination
A survivor series of some sorts using the Elimination Match mode to make some kind of big show involving teams or stables and what have you. Elimination Matches are pretty much each member of each teams are put into 1 on 1 matches in an attempt to eliminate all members of the other teams. Considering this could potentially mean around like 9 matches all in one night, it'll focus on Two Teams. It could either be a stable, or a team of whoever wishes to take part. Title Matches are scarce here.

more ideas to come


FAQ and Clarifications

Spoiler (Show/Hide)
  How will matches be booked?

Pretty simple actually, whichever ones look interesting on paper for the most part! More wins = A higher chance of a title shot! Main shows will have fighters wrestle in their own divisions.

That's right, I said MAIN shows! As there will be occasional Pre-Show Matches (on whichever show wants a pre-show thing) to hype up said Main Show. Openweight fights can be offered in these preshows! These Let's call these Pre-Show segments "Road to X: Stop Y", where X = The Main Show and Y = The Number of that Pre Show (eg.: Road to We Are The Champions: Stop I). The goal for these pre-shows will be about 10-30 minutes, keeping them short so that i can stay sane when editing for the beeg show. I'll probably do maybe 3 pre-shows per main show maximum.


faq and planned shows coming soon


Need more Jr Heavys and Superheavies rn. Heavyweights are fine, those two weight classes still needs filling out.

Name: David Nelson-Saint
Nickname: DNS
Hometown: Reno, Nevada
Wrestling Style: Shoot
Weight: 66.7kg
Height: 170cm
Weight Class: SHARPSHOOTERS Jr. Heavyweight
Theme: Will link in private, cutting a version down.

Backstory: Initially an amateur boxer, after a middling showing during his debut olympics for Australia in 2004 he turned his attention to MMA where he would go on to be a dominant Bantamweight, eventually retiring after his first professional loss in 2012 at 14-1-1. Taking what he'd learned from his boxing days, he was a devastating stand-up striker, however his ground-and-pound was to be equally feared.

Following his retirement from MMA, he went on to follow his actual dream of becoming a professional wrestler. While he would achieve mixed results within the independent side of the squared circle over the coming years due to his lack of a grappling base, his straight right and spinning backfist would prove devastating for everyone and anyone on the receiving end.

Being the half-brother of independent wrestler Ace Nelson and brother-in-law of Primetime and TANW wrestler Russ Saint, he has many personal ties to the business even beyond it being his personal dream job. However, he notably does not play well with others, having exclusively stuck with singles competition during his time in the ring. He is Australian-American by descent, contrasted to his half-brother being fully Australian.

Catching wind of Grappling of Glory piqued his curiosity. In spite of the promotion being very much built for people already established within the AES, the sharpshooters divisions caught his eye. For him, it would be the perfect way to showcase himself to the professional world once again, and one has to assume, in spite of his 5-year retirement, that a lot of expectations will be laid upon him.

Gimmick/Moveset ideas: As before, very strike-y. More focused on arm-based striking than leg-based all-in-all. Some ground and pound mixed in with a couple of wrestling takedowns.
Face/Heel: Face bordering tweener
Finishers/Sigs: Spinning Back Elbow, Backhand Blow 01, Backhand Blow 02, one of the strong attack punches.
Appearance: As before.

Name: Mark Anderson
Nickname: Mandersom
Hometown: Waco, Texas
Wrestling Style: Wrestling
Weight: 128 kg
Height: 196 cm
Weight Class: Heavyweight
Theme: Thin Lizzy- Cowboy Song
Backstory: Mark Anderson, as his name would apply, is the son of the legendary Brad Anderson. His father started training Mark to wrestle back when he was only 13 years of age, and he would have his first match in a small promotion in Waco at the young age of 14. Despite having the talent and heart for the business since birth, times were rough for the second generation superstar. His father, a titan of the "big hoss" days of wrestling, was left an alcoholic wreck from his escapades in his youth, and he would frequently beat both Mark and his mother in drunken rages to the point were Mark's mother, Jackie Clements, died of her injuries after one brutal beating when Mark was 17, although his father did take her to the hospital himself after he realized what he'd done.

When Mark turned 18, however, Mark left his father without as much as a word and lived with his grandparents for a short time before landing several spots in major Texas independent promotions. His chiseled look, charming charisma and personality, throwback gimmick, and use of the thought to be extinct hard knock "wrasslin" style of the 70s and early 80s made him extremely popular, especially with the female fans, to the point of being accepted into TANW and GoG.

While his father might go down as an unruly brute of a man who most casual fans only know from a brief stint in FCCW in 1984, Mark Anderson looks to make his own name for himself in a more positive light. While Mark respects the advances wrestling has made since the time of his father, he believes that all the flips and nuisances of this new era aren't needed. In his opinion, you can take any move, no matter how simple, and it can be used as a finisher if you hit it right, hence his finishers being the seemingly humble Lariat and DDT. While in the hands of other competitors they're pretty much transition moves, in the rough hands of Mark Anderson they become weapons of mass destruction that spell the end of many a match.

Gimmick/Moveset ideas: Old school brawler strikes, slams, and suplexs. He hits very hard with his strikes.
Face/Heel: Face
Finishers/Sigs: The Lariat (Clothesline From Hell), Sky High, A stiff looking DDT (I'll leave that up to you), Oklahoma Slam, Getting busted open
Appearance: You have the CAW made.

Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-S9mtYowPY

Name: Lucius Masters
Nickname: "Ya Girl Calls Me Master"
Hometown: Jakarta, Indonesia
Weight: 238lbs
Height: 6'7''
Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-S9mtYowPY
Backstory: Real rich, self-centered dude spent his parents' money travelling about the world and learning how to wrestle. Never actually got particularly good at it, in spite of paying for the best training money could buy, but that's fine because now he has a sexy girlfriend to do the wrestling for him. Extremely arrogant and outspoken. Little in the way of actual wrestling skill but thanks to a keen mix of fortunate genetics and narcissism (as well as the money to be able to afford top-of-the-line dieticians and personal trainers) has the raw muscle to back up his mouth.
Gimmick/Moveset ideas: basic power moves. punches, stomps, slaps, body-slams and non-complicated suplexes.
Face/Heel: Heel
Finishers/Sigs: Running STO, Death Valley Driver, Sitout Powerbomb, Fireman's Carry Stunner (or TKO if that's not in the game)
Appearance: user posted image

Very tall. Lean build, but with good muscle definition.

Name: Lily Malone
Nickname: "The Wild Unknown"
Hometown: Kilkenny, Ireland
Weight: 155lbs
Height: 5'5''
Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-S9mtYowPY
Backstory: Quiet girl who mostly keeps to herself. Did ballet and tapdancing growing up, which planted the fundamental seeds which eventually blossomed into her development into a magnificent kicker. Met Lucius completely by chance on one of his trips across the globe and was charmed by his confidence and sense of humor. Allowed herself to be swept away by him on a voyage around the world on a whim. Lily's a laid-back girl, she doesn't have any real problem with making big decisions like that because she figures everything'll all work out for the best in the end (as it always does). I feel like there's a word to describe that personality type but all that's coming to me is that she allows herself to be blown about on the breezes of the wind that life throws her way, and that sounds really artsy and pretentious but it's all I can really think of. She's not big on making decisions for herself, she likes letting life make those decisions for her.
Gimmick/Moveset ideas: kicks (not big boots - roundhouse kicks, spinny kicks, enzuigiris. anything that involves jumping and spinning and then kicking somebody).
Face/Heel: Tweener
Finishers/Sigs: every jumpy spinny kick in the game

Name: Carl Moreno
Nickname: Hammerhead
Hometown: Swansea, Wales
Weight: 204 lbs
Height: 6'1"
Theme: Fly From The Inside - Shinedown

Backstory: One half of the team known as the Too Two Crew with AES PrimeTime signee Richard Franco, Carl Moreno found himself rising fairly quickly through the independent scene despite his short tenure in the business. While you wouldn't think a 28-year-old to necessarily be short-tenured, Carl didn't find himself in the business proper until he was 24 years old, when he moved to America to be with his long-time girlfriend who had recently been deported from the UK.

Having dabbled a little in MMA at a younger age, he had at least somewhat of a professional fighting background to help his progression upon initially breaking in, however this was very limited. Being trained by Ace Nelson and Levin Thackeray, he would run into a young Rick Trent (then known by his premarital real name of Richard Terrance, Jr.) towards the end of his status as a trainee, before breaking into NaCl. Upon his arrival, he was put into a team with Richard Franco to help the veteran transition back into the ring after a 6-month layoff from a shoulder injury, during which the two hit it off surprisingly well in spite of Carl having been received as a bit of a stick in the mud up until that point.

Carl found himself losing his motivation to compete entirely following a match with the aforementioned Rick Trent on February 22, 2017, which so happened to be Trent's 25th birthday. In this match, a Hair vs. Hair match for the NaCl Championship, Carl would be defeated by his own finishing maneuver, the Call of the Hammer. After Trent had shaved Carl bald, he would hit Carl with the championship after spitting on it, following this by throwing it on the ground and announcing his signing to TANW. Being unable to deal with the shame of this sequence of events, particularly with such high expectations piled upon him so early in his career, he took a sabbatical, from which he is only now returning.

Not officially signed to the AES, he wants to prove to himself that he can actually cut it in the business before he makes any long-term commitments. Also, he is of no relation to Anette Moreno.

Gimmick/Moveset ideas: Very submissions-based. This is a trend with a lot of my guys I've noticed. He doesn't really specialize on working any given part though, he kinda picks one depending on the opponent for the most part. Since this'd be a pain in the ass to actually implement feel free to kinda just generally give him a lot of submissions. He's kinda punchy for strikes.
Face/Heel: Face
Finishers/Sigs:
  • Regal Cutter (Call of the Hammer) - if it's not in the game do like the 3/4 neckbreaker or smth
  • Kneebar
  • Hammerlock
  • Butterfly Lock

Name: Amai Mitsuo
Hometown: Another Town
Weight: Average
Height: Average
Theme: https://youtu.be/Y9G20wV0KHE
Backstory: A mysterious, standard transfered wrestler over from another big promotion. His dad died a couple years back, so it has just been him and his mom. He didn't have too many friends at the other promotion, so he didn't mind transferring.
Gimmick/Moveset ideas: Mitsuo is a young but unsusually incredibly talented Professional Wrestler. He speaks soft but often finds himself in the middle of zany situations. For whatever reason, these mishaps lead to him constantly running into Women from the Women's Lockerroom. He usually only has one male wrestler with him, his best friend and occasional tag team partner. Who that is? I'll let you decide who fits the mold. Otherwise, I can make another sign up. The incidents he's in with the Women wrestlers tend to give off the impression to him that they are madly in love with him.
Face/Heel: Tweener
Finishers/Sigs: Brainbuster [Finisher]
Figure 4 Leglock
German Suplex
Bodyslam

This. Maybe give him a non flattering singlet and cover up as much as possible while still looking like an actual wrestler. Except his face. Keep the face.

Tag Team Sign Up:
Team Name: The Wanderers
Members: Gregory Quinn & Chris Ahlgren
Theme: The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner - Iron Maiden (start when the vocals kick in)

-----

Name: Gregory Quinn
Nickname: "Gregarious"
Hometown: Wherever he may roam (via Ayr, Scotland)
Weight: 242 lbs
Height: 6'4"
Theme: Runnin' Down a Dream - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Backstory: Part of a notably "carny" wrestling family, Gregory and his sister Brittany found themselves heavily involved in the industry from a very young age, being the children of Scottish independent promoter James R. Quinn and English independent wrestler Helen McCarthy. From each of their 16th birthdays, both found themselves working in matches for their father's promotion, and while Brittany would thrive in this environment, Gregory felt too restrained and controlled, leaving home a year and a half later while still only 17 to experience the rest of the business.

For a time he wrestled in central London on the weekends while holding up a day job in order to financially support himself, but he'd eventually find himself making enough money through various bookings to quit and go full time by age 23. Avoiding using the family name during this time period, he would take bookings under the name Gregarious, apt to his very sociable nature.

Around this time, he first met a young Chris Ahlgren, training in south London. Their first meeting would be fairly uneventful and brief, however, as Gregory was at this time intending to leave the UK and retrain in Japan, which he would go on to do. Nine months later, however, the two would meet once again, Chris having similarly decided upon training in Japan. At this point, the two would find themselves becoming fast friends in spite of their 5-year age gap, particularly over their shared wants to travel from place to place and pick up bits and pieces of various styles.

By the time they had "graduated", the two were practically inseparable, and it wouldn't take long at all for them to become a team, traveling the world together and learning everything they could about varying styles from everywhere they would visit. In the years since, the two have accomplished a great deal across the independent circuit, including the distinction of having ended the undefeated streak of the team of Tanner Morgen and Matt Delsin. However, they have been criticized for resting on their laurels in the past. Now, at the respective ages of 33 and 28, they finally look to enter an AES ring for the first time, with a garish new fashion sense (if it can even be called fashion).

Gimmick/Moveset ideas: He's a very grapple-y lad, though very rounded in his approach due to his history. Somewhat of a bruiser when he feels like it, though.
Face/Heel: Face
Finishers/Sigs: Roaming Charges (Finlay roll), All Around the World (Killswitch), Dominator, Spinebuster
Appearance: user posted image

-----

Name: Chris Ahlgren
Nickname: Wandering
Hometown: Wherever he may roam (via London, England)
Weight: 201 lbs
Height: 5'8"
Theme: Do What You Want - OK Go

Backstory: I'll fill this out later. The majority of it's the same as Gregory's outside of like early bits.

Gimmick/Moveset ideas: Grapple-y with some kick-y. Again, pretty rounded.
Face/Heel: Face
Finishers/Sigs: Wandering Eye (Single Knee Facebreaker), Some kind of kick combination, Corkscrew Neckbreaker, Another neckbreaker.

Name: Abby Fightmaster (kana if needed: アッビー・ファイトマスター)
Nickname (well, title): The Future World's Greatest Fighter
Hometown: San Diego, CA
Weight: 161 lbs.
Height: 5' 6"
Theme: "Paradigm Shift" - Liquid Tension Experiment (from 0:05)
Backstory: A young girl from a rough neighborhood and a shitty home life, Abby Fightmaster turned to fighting as a constructive way to work off her anger. She spent some time in San Diego's MMA scene, finishing with a record of 4-1-1 before turning to wrestling. Abby seeks to be the world's best fighter, and will fight literally anyone to test her skills. After all, she learns by doing, and she learns fast.
Gimmick/Moveset ideas: MMA-ish/kickboxing. Use Ken Shamrock's moveset as a base, I'm not going to make you make an all new moveset unless you really want to. I don't think Move Thief is in No Mercy, but if it is, give it to her.
Face/Heel: Tweener, leaning face
Finishers/Sigs: Sweep with Mounted Punches, Arm Wrench w/ Hook Kick, Tumbling Body Press, Diamond Dust.
Appearance: Here you go, and have a formula under it!

Name: Rondo Ratsiraka
Nickname:
Hometown: Toamasina, Madagascar
Weight: 355 lbs.
Height: 6'8
Theme: https://www.dropbox.com/s/neqndt4s16joo3j/Rondotheme1.mp3?dl=0
Backstory: Formerly a rugby star, Rondo found his true calling in bringing his size and strength to the wrestling ring, being taken under the wing of a mysterious benefactor who turned an otherwise green wrestler sitting back on his moraingy skills and size into Wrestling Club Super Southern Africa's premiere powerhouse talent. His career took a serious hit when a serious injury left him sidelined for over a year. He has since returned to competition in GoG to prove the Malagasy Massacre isn't done for good, and will happily bring the pain to all who stand in his way of a title.

Unknown to most, however, his true reason for being in GoG is for him to guage whether or not the fire of competition still burns within him, or if the work he's been doing as scout and manager for WCSSA is really where he belongs now...
Gimmick/Moveset ideas: Fucking enormous boy whose more than aware of how big he is and is proud of it. Power/MMA style.
Face/Heel: Face
Finishers/Sigs: Death Valley Driver (Malagasy Driver), Bow and Arrow lock (Fossa Lock), Stall Suplex (Wait for it...)
Appearance:

Name: Marie Connor (kana if needed: マリー・コッナー)
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Weight: 175 lbs.
Height: 5' 9"
Theme: "Crush" - Pendulum (radio edit version)
Backstory: Marie almost didn't become a wrestler, but after her mother was killed by a drunk driver, she took up the family business. Originally she only thought she'd do one or two matches, but five years later, she's found herself wrestling for AES. While Marie has only had one match in AES as of this signup, she's eager to keep working in the company to step out her mother's shadow. She's already signed to Revolution-X and LOVE, with an upcoming appearance in NOW, and has chosen to wrestle outside of America for the first time in her career by joining with Grappling of Glory.
Marie has cultivated a sort of "everygirl" image, which extends to wrestling basically in civvies. While she's been at the business for a while, she still sort of considers herself new, and always wants to learn something new about the business. Marie makes it a point to be nice to pretty much anyone she encounters. Well, usually.
Gimmick/Moveset ideas: Technician with a good submission game. While most of her moveset is focused on wearing down her opponent's legs, she's also been known to pull off a handful of surprise moves (suicide dive, top rope dive, muscle buster) to throw her opponent off. Super good at reversals and flexible enough that she's difficult to get to submit. I have no idea at all who in No Mercy best fits this description. Big sorry.
Face/Heel: Face
Finishers: Reverse Figure 4 Leglock ("Hearn Lock" or at least close enough), Six Seconds' Magic
Signatures: Rolling Leg Lock, Single Crab
Appearance: No Mercy appearance complete with formula. Also here's a different Imgur gallery.
