Wrestler(s) Information

Ring Name: Henry Keyes (pronounced "Keys")
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 249 lbs

Hailing From: San Francisco, CA

Alignment: Face

Gimmick: Last we saw him (4-5 years ago), he was an eccentric steampunk airship pirate with a loose grasp on reality and a gregarious too-friendly approach to human interaction, mixed with an incredibly hard-hitting brawler style in the ring. In the years since, he's become a Pirate King. Its effects on his personality are mostly in the financial means he now has, the scars of battles unseen that he's now acquired, a few grays intermingled with his electric-red hair and stache, and like a 10% better grasp on reality. The Plague Doctors are still there, helping him out in undisclosed ways. It's also possible he now has a tiger.

Wrestling Style: Dude freaking smacks. Cesaro with a lower regard for his own well-being.

Three Weaknesses:
1) He's still a Roomba at heart. He can't resist a fight against someone he considers a vile fiend. Really susceptible to falling into one-on-many odds as a result.

2) He can't read the room. It's not that he's necessarily selfish or lacks empathy - it's more that he doesn't do the whole "decorum" thing and doesn't really understand why others choose decorum when they can just be out in the open about everything and anything.
3) He's got this crazy leather brace around his left arm that would seem like it's decorative if anything, but scouts and veterans know it's hiding some deeply mangled stuff down there and without it, he's basically a three-limbed man.

Three Strengths:
1) The Bell Clap is the greatest and most important finisher in the history of pro wrestling, shut up, it is, and everyone loves it.

2) Dude's motor is legendary, especially if he's fighting FOR something (a friend, a moral battle, a championship, a cause)
3) His literal strength. He's gotten a little bigger in his absence, and he was already pretty dang strong before.


Ten regular moveset moves:

1) Straight elbow strikes
2) European Uppercuts
3) Front Chancery
4) Abdominal Stretch
5) Spinning back elbow
6) Fisherman suplex pin attempt
7) Full nelson: both the submission hold, and the slam
8) Suplex variations
9) DDT
10) Corkscrew elbow drop

2-5 trademark moves:

1) Tossing European Uppercut (Swiss Death)
2) 3 to 5 suplexes in a row where he doesn't release the grip between each one
3) "Clockwork" - top rope belly-to-belly suplex
4) Tilt-a-whirl backbreaker
5) Top rope diving knee drop

1 Finishing Move: BELLLLLLLLLLLLL CLAP!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLuhWLNqpiA&feature=youtu.be&t=128 (you only need to watch for three seconds - it's not a finisher for Sherlock because he hasn't mastered the move like Henry has). It resonates in an arena like a tuning fork.

1 "MDK" (murderdeathkill) Finishing Move (Rare Special Occasion Finisher): A Bell Clap...WITH A WEAPON.

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times: there is always a spot for a Pirate King.

Hard Yes.
