Real Name: Same

Nickname: The Arizona Assassin

That's what Adrian is, that's what he want's to leave behind.

A 2nd generation wrestler, Adrian grew up around the business thanks to his older brothers. His parents died when he was young and he was basically raised to adulthood by his older brother Bryant, who spent most of Adrian's adolescent life traveling around the world in his own professional wrestling career and so, Adrian spent most of his free time hanging out with wrestlers and wrestling personalities and/or picking his brother's brain for cool new stories about his wrestling history.

When Adrian was old enough to start training for his own career he, along with his best friends Brandon Young and Cecil Kennedy, and eventually his older sister Kaycee, enrolled in Bryant's new training school the Notorious Wrestling Academy, much to Bryant's dismay. The eldest Tanner wanted something more for his kid brother, but Adrian had been hooked on the business since he was barely able to walk, and he, Cecil and Brandon had been doing their own backyard wrestling shenanigans for years at that point. It was either Bryant train them or they go somewhere else, and Bryant wasn't willing to trust anyone else with his sibling's training.

Once Adrian had completed his training Bryant decided the best way to test him was to throw him right into the deep end, so he sent Adrian half way across the world to the continent of Australia with only his wits, and his other older brother Christian by his side. Where most people would be troubled by this predicament Adrian took to it like a fish to water, and wound up Champion of Australia 3 months into his career.

His first Australian Championship win, which he wasn't supposed to originally even be competing for, lit a fire under Adrian and the Arizona Assassin was born! He began branching out from Australia to other parts of the world, winning championships in almost every company he went to. The most important of which being Hardkore World where he would go on to be the Hardkore World Light Heavyweight, American, Australia, and multiple time World Tag and Six Man Tag Team Champion, but it was the dual accomplishment of winning both the Hardkore World and EWRT Wrestler of the Year awards that really signified Adrian as one of the BEST wrestlers in the game.

5 or so years ago, feeling like he'd accomplished everything he wanted to and then some, Adrian took a hiatus from wrestling to deal with nagging injuries and work on a college degree. But the wrestling bug always bites back, and now he's back and he's looking to continue his goal of cementing himself as the BEST Light Heavyweight in the Business.

Style: Technical Aerialist


Adrian has dirty blond hair that parts down the middle and falls into his eyes when he looks down (think AJ Styles before he got weird and grew it out into the emo half-eye covering thing is hair is now- so during TNA heyday), ice blue eyes, and the slight hint of a beard that he keeps trimmed close to his face. He has various scars on his back from various matches throughout the years, though they aren't that noticeable unless you look really hard. He has a tattoo on his left ring finger of a Green Lantern ring

Out of ring he usually wears pants and whatever custom t-shirt he feels like sporting that day. He makes a lot of custom t-shirts with various catchphrases or dumb things people have said or done on them and wears them in his day to day wrestling life

In ring he wears short tights that go from his waist to his knees (varying in color from match to match)with a Superman shield logo on the left and right sides with "AT" inside the shield. The colors usually contrast to his pant colors. He wears matching elbow and knee pads of the same color as the pants and boots with the same color as the pants with the laces in white,

Entrance Music. "Be Undeniable!" by HELLYEAH

Entrance Text:
The lights in the arena cut out leaving only the SWAT-Tron lit up. Spliced footage from Metal Gear Solid III begins to play on the video screen.

Revolver Ocelot: Hold it right there, traitor... Let's find out just how lucky
you are...

Ocelot reveals a bullet for his revolver... He loads the bullet

Ocelot: Watch closely... [takes out three revolvers]

Ocelot: One of these three guns has a single bullet in it... I'm going to pull
the trigger six times in a row... Are you ready?

Ocelot juggles the three guns... Each time he pulls a trigger, Sokolov
winces... The fifth time a trigger is pulled, Sokolov pisses his pants

Ocelot: Looks like your luck hasn't run out yet...

The sixth time, the gun fires and the screen shatters into a million pieces and everything cuts to black again.

Voice over: "BE UNDENIABLE!"

"Be Undeniable" by HELLYEAH booms through the speakers and Adrian Tanner Jr appears standingin the middle of the stage, head covered by the hood of his ring jacket. Red and white spotlights illuminate the stage as the music plays through the PA.

Max Blake: "Introducing to the ring from Tucson, Arizona, weighing in at two hundred twenty-seven pounds and standing six feet, one inch tall! He is 'The Arizona Assassin'... ADRIAN TANNER JJUUNNIIOORR!!!"

As SWAT Atlantic Coast's esteemed ring announcer does his job, Adrian raises both arms over his head letting them come to rest stretched out in front of him, pointing like guns at the ring. At the announcement of his name he 'fires' and loud fireworks explode from the stage as the crowd cheers in approval. The red spotlights make a circle through the crowd while the white spotlights pulse in tune with the music for a very dizzying effect, as the Arizona Assassin makes his way down the ramp. He walks down the ramp towards the ring, slapping hands with a few fans before he pulls the jacket off as he slides under the ropes. He mounts the nearest turnbuckle and makes a gun motion with his left hand. He cocks the "gun", "fires" then jumps down and begins his pre-match warmup.
