Date of Birth: 1/15/85
Hometown: Sherwood Forest, Baton Rogue, Louisiana
Appearance: Supreme Wright is a young African American male with a lean, lanky, extremely defined physique. The type of body you would expect to be more suited for a track and field athlete or an NFL wide receiver. His hair is often pulled back into cornrows of various intricate snaking designs. He has an angular face with a thin mustache and goatee. Various tattoos adorn his body, including on both arms and along his torso. Honestly, he looks more suited to being a Denver Nugget than a professional wrestler.
In Ring Attire: He wears an amateur wrestler-style singlet of varying airbrushed designs.
Personality: An articulate, well-mannered young man, not at all what you would expect, considering his rough appearance and that outrageous name(Blame his mother). Unlike the usual breed of young wrestler that bursts onto the scene with a mouth spitting out nothing but garbage, an out of control ego, or an unwarranted sense of self-importance, Supreme Wright is a breath of fresh air. He's not one to insult you. He's not really interested in trash talking you. He prefers to do all his talking inside the ring. But make no mistake about it, he's absolute gold inside that ring...and he knows it.
Is he cocky? A little. Is he arrogant? Maybe just a bit. But don't you ever say he's disrespectful. His mother raised him right, making sure that he never cursed, was respectful to the ladies and didn't grow up to be a scoundrel like his good for nothing father. But don't think he's a boyscout. Inside a wrestling ring, he's a demon. A force of nature. An artist painting a canvas with torn tendons, strained ligaments and the bitter tears of his opponents. He's not in wrestling to be a hero...after all, watching a dozen men lose their career trying to do so in Texas, pretty much convinced him that's just a stupid proposition. He's not in wrestling to be rich or famous...although that'd be nice. He's a wrestler...because he loves this sport. Breathes this sport. Has the competitive need to DOMINATE this sport.
But other than an obsessive need to be the greatest in-ring wrestler ever...he's a pretty okay guy.
Alignment: Neutral. All he really cares about is wrestling and competition.
1. Master grappler- Some kids grow up dreaming to be Raya Oscura or TORA Wanizame, legendary high flyers that shocked and thrilled the crowds whenever they took to the skies. However, this kid grew up wanting to be Lord Byron, the IIWF ring general that destroyed body parts with unparalleled mat wrestling technique. An amateur wrestler since his early teens and a practitioner of Brazilian jujitsu and judo, inside a wrestling ring, the most dangerous place to be, is within the grasp of Supreme Wright.
2. Experience beyond his years- Although he's technically been a professional wrestler for about two years, Wright has been surrounded by wrestling all his life. His father was long-time journeyman wrestler Major Wright. His grandfather? The legendary shooter, Roosevelt Wright. There's little that he hasn't already seen or experienced inside a wrestling ring.
3. Athleticism- A natural athlete, Wright possesses a body forged by years of competition and training. He possesses top-notch speed, agility, conditioning and endurance.
Weaknesses: (MUST be at least equal in both number and relevance to Strengths):
1. Durability- Although his conditioning may be superior, the ability of his lanky body to handle the sometimes absurd amount of violence administered inside a professional wrestling ring is suspect. It's one thing to be able to roll around on a mat, it's another thing to constantly get up after getting dropped on your head.
2. Size- He's fairly tall, but light. Most larger wrestlers shouldn't really have much problem tossing him around.
3. Ruled by his emotions- He's usually a calm and collected individual, but there's a meanness inside of him that comes out inside that wrestling ring. Once triggered, his temper is out of control. When gripped with anger, there's little in this world capable of reasoning with the man.
Entrance Music: "Step into a World(Rapture's Delight)" by KRS-One
Ring Entrance (may include lyrics): Ehh...I'll strat 'em.
Type of Wrestler: Mat Technician w/ a focus on body part dissection
Comparable Real Wrestlers: Bret Hart, Nigel McGuinness and oddly enough...Mariko Yoshida
1. "The Supremacy"- An inverted version of the Texas cloverleaf, also known as a Gorilla clutch, where the person applying the move is facing the same way as his opponent. Sometimes, Wright will drop down and apply a bodyscissors to the hold to prevent his opponent from escaping/reaching the ropes. The move also leaves the opponent wide open to getting kicked in the torso repeatedly...but he'll only do that if he's feeling mean.
2. "Reign Supreme"- A delayed sitout double-underhook piledriver. The only reason why it's delayed, is because Wright played the moment over and over in his head where the television commenator would build anticipation, going "REIGN..." as he lifts and holds the opponent into the air...before shouting "SUPRRRREEEEMMMMME!!!!" as he completes the move. At any rate, this move is a nasty bit of business.
Signature Moves (these are your favorite moves, specialty moves, named moves, etc, list up to 10):
1. "The Gnaw Bone Clutch"- The signature hold of his college wrestling coach and former professional wrestler, Matthew Lowney. It's a stretch muffler with a headscissors applied at the same time. Lowney was a great wrestler...just a damn shame he didn't have any charisma to speak of.
2. "Delta Destroyer"- Reverse roll-up rolled through into a released German suplex
3. "The Big Easy"- A grounded head-and-arm triangle choke submission, most often set-up by a STO
4. Russian legsweep into a grounded Octopus hold
5. "Fat Tuesday"- A fireman's carry double knee gutbuster. He throws them over his head and falls onto his back, raising both knees and causing the opponent to drop across both of his knees stomach first.
Moveset (list 10-30 moves and descriptions if needed)
1.multiple pinning variations- Supreme has a multitude of pinning moves to surprise his opponents with. No matter how out of it he may appear to be, opponents need to stay on their toes, as he can reverse holds into sudden flash pins with alarming speed.
2. dropkick variations- He doesn't take to the air too often, but the sheer vertical lift he gets on a standard dropkick shows that Supreme could be an amazing high flier if he ever wanted to. Watch out for his missile dropkick to the knee...the damn thing could dislocate a kneecap.
3. Armbreaker variations- From a regular over-the-shoulder armbreaker to repeated over-the-shoulder armbreakers to several other more unique variations, Supreme has several ways to smash your arm across things.
4. Forearm smash- He doesn't throw punches. He uses forearms and elbow strikes.
5. extremely fast arm wringer takedown -Basically, Supreme will execute an arm wringer and then pull down on the arm hard enough to cause his opponent to slam face-first into the canvas.
6. hammerlock DDT ->Kimura lock
8. uranage suplex
9. STF variations- If you're lying facedown on the canvas while wrestling Supreme Wright, expect to be put into a variety of painful submission holds involving your body bending at an unpleasant angle. That's just how it goes.

21. "Gator roll" - An amateur wrestling hold...Wright grabs his opponent into a front-facelock while both are in a kneeling position, and then barrel rolls while keeping the facelock cinched in. This can be transitioned into a number of submission holds.
22. crossface forearms to the face
25. inverted triangle hold
History: A recent graduate of the AWA Combat Corner(Not that he really needed it, but eh...), Wright shocked his trainers and AWA staff when he turned down a contract offer from the Texas-based federation, instead opting to see what opportunities were available to him in the rest of the world. Seeing the chaos going in with the ongoing war between the Southern Syndicate and Juan Vasquez's one man crusade against them, Wright wanted no part of that battle. What's the point of wrestling in the AWA, if some idiot and his gang is just going to jump you in the parking lot and break your arm for being better than them? In his own words..."Mama didn't raise no fool."
(Note: I got the rest of his history in my head...I just prefer to reveal it bit by bit. Plenty of it is revealed throughout the rest of the app anyhow)
I suddenly have the urge to ask Jer to post up some of his characters so I can match him.
This only served to remind me that I should have waited until KotC to be over before I posted this app. Now people can...strat and stuff. Doh.
Having a move set of repeated punches to the throat and groin along with running away kind of makes stratting easy.
You have to account for hooks, jabs and uppercuts with both the left AND right hand.
Not only that, but is he going to run away on a skateboard, a segway, an ATV, those shoes with wheels on the heels or on rollerblades? At which point, you need to set up intricate traps to prevent this.
It's more involved than you think.
Man, Michaelson would want to pummel this kid for abandoning the AWA after he trained him...
...if only it were true!
I was going to app him to the AWA originally! Hence the history!
