Gimmick: James Ranger has always drawn in motivations on the simpler things. What he wants..he will eventually get. The Turtle will win the race against the Rabbit. Doesn’t necessarily mean that he will stick to the tried and true approach every time, but he knows that victory will come his way. He honest and kind to a fault, but knows that in the business, you have to dirty your hands at some point to reach the next level of success. He has no problems helping someone in trouble or sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong, it is where it leads...where the finish line leads him to victory and satisfaction.

Ring Entrance(If Not First) : Walks with an air of disgust mixed with a tinge of madness that grows with each passing week, eyes those to the left and right as he approaches the ring, taking in his opponent with measure slowly, as one would prepare their meal.

Ring Entrance(If First) : Walks with an air of disgust mixed with a tinge of madness that grows with each passing week, eyes those to the left and right as he approaches the ring, taking it in, gazing at the ring as he walks around it, slowly smiling as he takes the steps into the ring.


What are your character’s motivations for competing?
Looking to simply relearn the art of wrestling, the thrill of beating his opponent and holding the gold around his waist. When he enters the arena, he only desires to see his opponent defeated. He likes the thrill of facing them again, as to him, it's like putting together a giant jigsaw puzzle, eventually you will see the whole picture. He knows there is always someone better than him, and he strives to beat that next person.

Finishing Moves: Maximum three (3) and one (1) optional ultra-finisher (UF)

Finishing Moves

1. Advent Dawn - Shooting star double foot stomp

James usually perform this finisher after a Final Execution if the pinfall is not ensured. James smirks with a wild look in his eye, taking to the top rope of a turnbuckle, eyeing either the facedown/face up prone opponent, executing a shooting star press and continue the rotation to land with both feet on an opponent's back or stomach for effect.

Extra-Heelish Version: Attempting to land both feet upon a targeted area, i.e the legs in attempt to revert to his submission finisher. If sanctioned, targets the opponents neck or face.

2. Final Execution- Axe Kick - Kicking the person with a mule kick, James hits the ropes, bouncing back with greater speed,then connecting with scissors kick to the neck area.

3. Fangs of Destiny - Inverted Figure Four Ankle Lock - This submission hold involves a combination of the Figure-Four Leglock and the Ankle lock. However, instead of locking the opponents legs in a "4" shape, the attacking wrestler crosses one of the opponent's legs over to the other and applies pressure on the opponent's crossed leg with one of his own and at the same time uses a key ankle lock submission grapevine on the other leg.

Optional Ultra-Finishing Move

1. Coiled Embrace -

manji-gatame (inverted swastika hold)/Octopus Hold - James stands behind the opponent and hooks a leg over the opponent's opposite leg. The wrestler then forces the opponent to one side, traps one of the opponent's arms with their own arm, and drapes their free leg over the neck of the opponent, forcing it downward. This elevates the wrestler and places all the weight of the wrestler on the opponent.
