"The Maniac" Dave O'Connor

Postby Dave_Maniac » Fri Apr 26, 2019 4:19 pm

Basic Info
Name: David Darrel O'Connor
Age: 33
Alignment: Heel
Billed From: South Boston, Massachusetts
Nicknames: The Maniac, The Madman, XWA’s most violent man
Weight: 218lb (99kg)
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 Jiu-Jitsu 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 has been his partner since they were in highschool, since then they have always been together as a couple. 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.

Dave is mostly quiet and stoic while Alissa is the one who talks, he will protect his wife at all cost and is brutal when angered. She is cocky, hot-headed, violent, sadistic and not afraid to attack either man or woman, she will send Dave to roughen up or intimidate if necessary. All these qualities make her power-hungry and will use any tool she has to get everything on her favor, this got to the point that she has payed/intimidated/beaten up referees and talent. She speaks in a cocky South Boston accent and thinks of herself as royalty, she sometimes acts like a deranged little girl but that is because she knows people get freaked out at that idea and will act this way when she wants to threaten people.

Entrance Theme:
"I'm Shipping Up To Boston" by Dropkick Murphys

Entrance Text:
The lights go out and Alissa’s face appears on the screen laughing maniacally only to slowly die down, then ominously her voice speaks in gaelic.

Alissa O’Connor: Tiocfaidh ár lá...

Then Dropkick Murphys "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" intro starts to blast through the PA system and when the drums start to play Dave and Alissa O'Connor walk out to the top of the ramp. Dave, who is wearing a black hooded leather jacket on top of his fighting gear, looks down to the ring with laser focus while she stares at the crowd with a smirk of disdain.

Hana Ramirez: Making his way to the ring, accompanied by Alissa O'Connor, from South Boston Massachusetts, weighing in at 218 pounds, he is "The Maniac" Dave O'Connor

The red-haired goddess walks down the isle in front of her husband and when the song's lyrics start they reach the bottom of the ring. When they get on the apron he opens up the ropes for his wife and after they have stepped inside the ring, he removes his jacket by throwing it on the mat. Alissa stares at the crowd with absolute disdain, she goes on to grab a microphone and starts speaking in her cocky South Boston accent while her husband puts his gloves on.

Alissa O'Connor: Rough him/her/them up, babe.

Alissa walks out of the ring just as he is adjusting his gloves, once she out he punches both fists together while twisting his head.

In Ring
Wrestling Style
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, collar and elbow, arm wrenches, chops or any of that stuff.
After doing one of his signature moves he will usually signal to his opponent to come here with both hands.
