https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs6_AgzlJIY

Entrance
Frank has a pretty bog-standard, no-frills entrance. Not necessarily boring, he doesn't just walk to the ring and do nothing, but he basically doesn't deviate from your standard "look intense, pause on the ramp, walk to the ring, pose on the ropes, pose on the opposite ropes" setup. Think Steve Austin without the middle fingers.


APPEARANCE

Picture Base
Wardlow

General Description
Frank is tall and beefy, but not a super-cut bodybuilder type. He has a well-kept fade (it's a bit shorter on top than what Wardlow has) and a short beard.

Ring Attire
Frank has three singlets he cycles through:
 - One looks like the profile pic above with red and black camo (without the logo)
 - One is black with green trim
 - One is black with red trim
Standard black boots and pads


CHARACTER

Frank Lawson is the cousin of former Xtreme Wrestling Association star Tyler Lawson. Frank was trained by his cousin and shows similar promise as an amateur-style technician, but due to his size has the added element of brute strength that gives him a whole lot of potential. Due to Tyler's connections with the likes of Razor Xtreme and Caleb Spires, Frank has landed an opportunity here in the XWA and is hungry to prove himself.

Frank is a no-nonsense wrestler who tries to get clean wins and avoid any flashy taunts or other tomfoolery. However, he is hyper-competitive, and can sometimes let his anger get the best of him in the ring. He usually leaves referees alone, but will take to bending the rules when things aren't going his way or brutalizing an opponent in an attempt to put them away. He is also extremely confident in his skills and abilities. After his long string of successes so early in his career, he wholeheartedly believes he is the best wrestler in the XWA, and wants to prove that to the world by beating everyone he can.

With Tyler now serving as his equalizer, Frank is torn between the fact that he cares about his cousin and appreciates the help and the fact that he doesn't want to be associated with the Tyler Lawson character.


WRESTLING STYLE

Like Tyler, Frank Lawson is a power-based technician, employing a variety of suplexes and throws. However, he sets himself apart from his cousin by leaning a bit away from submission wrestling and more toward striking. The strikes especially come out when he starts to get more emotional and brutal toward his opponent. He still will target body parts and use submissions, but more often earlier in matches before the emotions begin to pick up. He never does dives, and will only occasionally come off the top rope.
