Biography: Growing up, Michael Swift knew he wanted to be a wrestler. From the age of six, when he first saw the rise of Stone Cold Steve Austin, he desired to be in the ring, roughing it up with the rest of them. He begged his parents to take him to amateur wrestling studios and boxing gyms, convinced that having strong mat wrestling and fighting skills were what he would need to excel. Even when he entered high school and figured that professional wrestling was all fake like his friends had been saying, he still wanted to follow his idols growing up, and once he graduated, immediately signed up to a local indy wrestling company so he could begin his new career in pretend fighting. He completed his requisite training period in record time, aided by his experience in fighting, and was allowed a spot on the main roster.

Since those days, Swift has been involved in fighting three different demons, a vampire, a team of robots, various felons, a literal bear, a mad scienist, a Pharaoh, a Goblin, three monsters destined to destroy the planet, an evil dentist, and most terrifyingly of all, a straight edge furry. The business he had believed to be acting and fake fighting, was turning out to be very real. While clearly uncomfortable around some of his new found coworkers, and never quite understanding their actions, Swift was not one to back down from a challenge, and he had spent his whole life trying to be among the wrestling world, that a few freaks weren't going to make him quit. As Swift picked up victory after victory, he found himself rising to the top of the card.

However, it was only a local indy company, and Swift found himself being passed over again and again by major promotions, which after six years, was beginning to wear thin on the boy. He could only take so much of earning peanuts for fighting monsters and psychopaths, and he hated his valet day job. He was just about to quit, when he received word that XWA was looking into giving him a try-out. Swift immediately quit his day job, and drove on out to XWA headquarters. Impressed by his hunger, he was given a chance to try out among the others invited for a shot at making the roster. While not a flashy wrestler, Swift made waves by being incredibly technical and moving fast for a man of his size, being the only one to go undefeated during the try outs. It was two weeks later that Swift was offered a provisional contract, which he quickly signed, eager to begin wrestling in the big leagues.

Style: Michael Swift is known for his fluid style, fighting comfortably with both strike heavy and submission based styles. Against larger and grappling based opponents, he aims to make use his speed aggressively close with his opponent and overwhelm them with flurries to knock them off their feet, after which he looks to keep them grounded with holds and submissions. When fighting smaller and faster foes however, he uses an out-boxer style, constantly trying to stay out of his opponent's reach to tire them out and force them to over commit so he can punish them with a strike or take down, which he will attempt to turn into a grapple or submission. Ultimately, Michael is looking to force his opponent into situations where their strengths are nullified and he can take advantage of their mistakes. While able to do the part of strongman and hardcore wrestler in a pinch, he refuses to go to the top rope.

Appearance

While tall for most people at 6'3", Michael is not a giant, and for his weight has an incredibly silm build. Some of the bulkier wrestlers might even call him lanky, as his muscle definition is incredibly slight when he isn't flexing. His skin is a pale white, though not completely without sun. His eyes are a bluish color, and his hair a straight short blond. Sometimes, he grows out a bit from blond scruff on his chin, though he never lets it get too long before he just shaves it off. In terms of in ring attire, he prefers MMA shorts, blue ones to be exact. While a bit looser than the usual wrestling gear, he finds them comfortable and easy to move around in. He also wrestle barefoot for similar reasons. Outside of the ring, Michael is usually seen in slacks, a t-shirt, some nondescript sneakers, and a "Blood For Mercy" jacket.

The sounds of Hadouken blast through the speakers as the main light begin to dim and the strobe lights flare up in time with beat. From the back, Michael Swift emerges onto the entrance ramp, the crowd roaring a mix of boos and cheers. Swift does a quick view of the crowd before doing a bit of shadow boxing at the top of the ramp.

Swift begins to make his way towards the ramp, ducking, weaving, and throwing out little jabs as he moves towards the ring. When he reaches the apron, he reaches up and grabs the second ring rope before pulling himself onto the apron. He steps into the ring from underneath the second rope, cracking his neck once he is inside.

Swift does a quick wave to the crowd before walking into the corner, where he hammerfists the top turnbuckle before turning to the center of the ring and leaning upon the turnbuckle.
