Heck, yeah! I used to be involved in forum-based wrestling roleplays a while ago. I'll work up a character bio shortly and I have no trouble playing announcers, commentators, managers, valets, etc.... as needed. Played by:
Spiral SpiderStage Name:
Neutral / "Tweener"Gimmick:
Merry started out as a mental patient out on a day pass with her nurse. She was keenly interested in professional wrestling and it was found to calm her down. Nurse Jen used to take her out to watch shows in person, not knowing that she was feeding her obsession in an unhealthy way. She latched on to wrestlers, becoming one part social vampire, one part keen mimic and the rest made up of the worst, stalking fan imaginable. In the beginning, she was a couch potato member of the peanut gallery, but she organized brutal back yard matches that sated her lust as she moved on from absorbing what info she could from independent league matches and on to sitting in the seats at televised events.
She formally broke into her wrestling career during an off-camera federation-run event where novices were invited into the ring to try to take down one of their champs for bragging rights. She got her ass handed to her over and over again, but her stamina and tenacity was impressive. It's hard to keep a girl down when she's laughing at you the entire time and appears to get off on the pain you deal her with almost every blow. As the wrestler she is today, she's known as being extremely hard to predict. While she loves submission holds, it's hard to see them coming. She's not all there, but she seems to be enjoying herself.Style:
unpredictable mix of technical, hardcore and power that lend to her own brand of unorthodox
- Poison Ivy - an exaggerated Texas Cloverleaf (an homage to her original idol, Dean Malenko. Hale is a submission artist at heart)
- Crossface Chickenwing - because it's fun and she likes to hear people say it.
- High Angle Half Crab (groin stretcher)
- STF(U) - STF, on the ground submission hold focusing on shutting the opponent up.
- Flowing Snap DDT - She spent much of her early career stalking and imitating Raven. She pulls off his "raven effect/evenflow" DDT flawlessly. She doesn't even bother giving it a name or a twist of her own. It's done out of habit at this point.
Maniacal laughter after sustaining a particularly nasty blow. Theme Music:Attributes

I don't have theme music for her yet. It used to be Marilyn Manson's "Dopehat" but I'd like to find something more current and/or culturally relevant. Definitely up for suggestions.
