Gimmick: A psychopath isn't always the man locked in an asylum, wrestling with the demons in his head and muttering words to himself. Sometimes the psychopath is the media trained actor making billion dollar deals, shaking hands with politicians and signing all of your paychecks. He knows all of the right things to say, the right moves to make, the perfect image to uphold; but he will not hesitate to drop the act and show the world the worst side of him if the moment calls for it.


Theme Music (Solo/The 1%): 'Talk Up’ by Drake and Jay Z


Entrance: The whole stage glows in blinding maroon colored lights (dark blue lights for Liquid Swords entrance, royal gold lights for 1% entrance), and smoke billows through the curtain until the entire stage is covered in smoke. Flames start pulsing up and down from the parts of the stage, and Mr. DEDEDE trolls out with confidence, and walks halfway down the ramp before stopping and lifting the corna-- inciting an eruption of pyro from the stage behind him

In-Ring Attire: Same as Edge's in 2010

Out-of-Ring Attire: Adidas Tracksuits and Yeezy's or KD's on his feet

Tendency to Cheat: As much as possible.

Wrestling Training:
Trained by his Uncle Fred.

Wrestling Debut: Began his career in 1999 in North East Wrestling.

Favorite Weapon: The Equalizer *Guitar with barbedwire strings, filled with nails, thumbtacks, shards of glass*

Strengths: Abnormal resilience, speed, agility, tactical sense, quick thinking, light on his feet, strategist, vastly improved melee ability. Able to get in "the zone" and put on extraordinarily fast offense.

Weaknesses: Arrogant, flippant, underestimates his opponents, plays too much. Constantly parties deep into the night so sometimes he'll have off-nights where he's either careless or so tired he gets his ass kicked the whole match and either lose or barely scrape by with the win.
