Name: David Darrel O'Connor
Billed From: South Boston, Massachusetts
Nicknames: The Maniac, The Madman, XWA’s most violent man
Weight: 169lb (76kg)
Height: 6' 2" (1.88m)
He was born and raised in South Boston Massachusetts descended from Irish immigrants, the eldest of three male brothers and a man made to be the best fighter ever. During his highschool and college years he was an amateur wrestler and boxer like his father. On his 20's, he started training in Tae Kwon Do but quickly shifted to Muay Thai and Judo before settling into MMA. When he was 25 he entered the the not-so-legal cage fighting and bare-knuckled boxing scene, he left it because he ended up in jail after a police raid in one of the fights. During his early 30's he became a professional MMA fighter and after 3 years he was forced to retire because a series of scandals about him being a very violent fighter, his wife's fixing fights and his use of illegal attacks broke out. His forced retirement made him want to train to become a wrestler along with his wife.
Alissa was born in Dublin Ireland and lived there until she was 15, when she moved to Boston she meet Dave in school and they have been together ever since. She is said to be a bad influence since she got into trouble for many things and dragged him in with her, she's the reason he did not finish college, got into illegal fights and even spent time in jail. As a small detail, he has a stylized rose tattoo with the name Alissa on his shoulder in honor of his wife and a tattooed wedding band with celtic scribbles in his ring finger.
After Legends 2019, Alissa painted her hair blonde, got her arm tattooed and started training with Dave to a more aggressive MMA style.
Dave is mostly a quiet and stoic former MMA fighter with a fisique that can easily intimidate anyone, he likes to punish people and will do anything to make his wife Alissa happy. His wife is a power hungry woman who will do anything to get any leverage, she has been known to get involved in matches, payed personnel and intimidated talent. It has to be noted that while Dave cares little about winning she sees loosing as a sign of loosing power unless it means beating an opponent within an inch of his or her life.

"I'm Shipping Up To Boston" by Dropkick Murphys
The lights go out as Alissa’s ominous voice speaking in Gaelic blast through the PA system.
Alissa O’Connor: Tiocfaidh ár lá...
Quickly Dropkick Murphys "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" intro starts and when the drums start to play Alissa O'Connor comes out accompanied by Dave, who is wearing a black hooded leather jacket on top of his fighting gear. Both stop at to the top of the ramp while the music pics up speed, this allows them time to focus on the task at hand while disregarding the crowd who show their displeasure by chanting "Dave you suck".

The Irish goddess walks down the isle in front of her husband with an authoritative look on her eyes, when the song's lyrics start they reach the bottom of the ring pausing there for a couple of seconds. Slowly they get into the ring letting the music play out and after a moment of pacing around the ring, she grabs the microphone from the ring attendant and starts speaking while her husband warms up by doing shadow boxing.
Alissa O'Connor: Rough him/her/them up, babe.
Alissa walks out of the ring just while he twists his head readying for the fight.
MMA style striker, when wrestling he still takes an MMA stance and will be very stiff on many of his strikes. His mentality towards wrestling is that it needs to look real, like an MMA fight and a fight needs to make sense. He usually focuses his matches in working one single part of the body first as his offensive attacks show, these can be either head, torso or legs (That's the priority). He likes to use illegal MMA attacks on people and is not beneath him to do a crotch punch when the referee is not looking. Finally, he does not do aerial stuff, arm wrenches, chops or any of that fake looking stuff.
After doing one of his signature moves he will usually signal to his opponent to come here with both hands.
