You want me to get a twitter account so I can weep about how fucking dull everything is and be a total burden on even more people in a public space? I'd much rather not and I'm pretty sure you don't either.
Hometown: Camden, New Jersey
Character Rep: Jim Norton
Text Color For In Shows: Saffron/FFB917
Outcast Heel. Although Dan in the Box doesn't tend to cheat all that much, his total hatred of everyone and everything and the reciprocation of this feeling from the fans would make him a ceritified heel. The only trait he might have as a face is the fact that he exists only to perform in a wrestling ring, and while he disregards the audience as a group of vile mouth-breathing cretins, he also appreciates that without them he wouldn't get his fix of attention. Also, he tends to hate other heels more than he does faces.
Entrance Theme: “Man in the Box” by Alice in Chains
The staccato chords of “Man in the Box” by Alice in Chains hits the speakers, prompting the fans to roar their disapproval as a dreary eyed, badly face-painted “Dan in the Box” steps out of the curtains clutching a steel chair. He slides it across the ramp ahead of him then performs a lazy circus tumble, throwing two arms of “Ta-Da!” to the audience only to be showered by the scorn of the audience. Dan grumbles, grabs the chair and continues to walk down to the ramp paying no heed to anyone along the ramp.
Announcer: And from Camden, New Jersey, weighing in at 250 lbs... DANNNN IN THE BOOOOOX!
Dan carefully places the steel chair on top of the ring steps, then rolls in underneath the bottom of the ring rope and sits slumped in the turnbuckle, dismissively waving off the fans and waiting for the match to start.
Fighting Style: Endurance Based Wear-Down followed by a brutal assault of the body with power, strikes and weapons. For the most part, DITB will take a vicious assault because he's not very fast and not very technically skilled, but his inability to feel any real agonising pain means he can keep going for a very long time until someone can land a knockout blow. As the match wars on, the tiredness of his opponent will open up opportunities, allowing Dan to use his size and strength to slam and break apart his rivals. Then, if pressed he will grab a steel chair and go to town on his poor rivals.

Dan in the Box is a jester and circus performer who's emotional range is as limited as a bag of glow in the dark pig meat. The only thing this powdered and eyeliner wearing performer feels is a constant dissatisfaction with everything. Every waking second is a constant struggle with the tedium of life and the ability to feel any other emotion other than being bored out of his skull. Whether it be pretty girls, being ripped off, getting his ass kicked or being threatened, Dan in the Box sees it as another tedious challenge.
The only time Dan feels even a twinge of an emotion other than total disgust at life is when he steps between those ropes. The hope that he can find a challenger who can hurt him, make him feel alive and anything other disdain is the one thing that keeps DITB living on.
He also does kids parties and barmitzvahs.
