"Hipster" wrestling gimmick creation

This is an outline of steps in formation of a wrestler with previous experience or training. It is a "hipster" character that will be a babyface jobber. Upon completion I will market the athlete and gimmick to promotions.


Enroll the talent into wrestling school

Dec 2012 - Dec 2013

I would enroll the talent into a fairly new wrestling school in Severn, MD called "Gillberg's Prowrestling Academy". It is owned by a former WWE star with ties to WWE and TNA wrestling promotions. The cost is $3,000 for 12 months.

Enroll the talent into acting classes

Jan. 2013 - April 2013

I would enroll the talent into acting classes at the "Maryland Ensemble Theater" in Frederick, MD. They offer beginner acting classes which would help improve mic skills and confidence. It is $250 for 12 weeks.

Decision of jobber or main event talent

02/01/2013 - 02/02/2013

The decision of the wrestler beging a jobber will be made based upon the fact that experience is lacking at this point.

Decision of heel vs. face

02/02/2013 - 02/03/2013

The decision of the wrestler being a heel will be made upon the hipster gimmick because hipsters are simply annoying, People love to hate hipsters.

Decision of tag team vs. single competitor

02/04/2013 - 02/05/2013

The decision of the wrestler being a singles competitor would be made based upon the fact no one would want to work with a snobby hipster as a tag team partner.

Character background development

03/01/2013 - 03/31/2013

Bssic points of his background: 1. He grew up Charles Village, an artsy area of Baltimore. 2. Mother is a Psychologist, and father a chef/musician. 3. The wrestler is a struggling artist and writer .4. Constantly taunts opponents for being "mainstream". Whatever their gimmick is what he was into that years ago, before it became cool. 5. He is disgruntled because he was fired from his job as a barista at Starbucks for constantly insulting customers intelligence and appearance.

Ring attire creation

04/04/2013 - 05/04/2013

The outfit will consist of black rimmed buddy holly glasses, red plaid trunks, black houndstooth scarf, black doc martens’ combat boots, ripped t-shirt with his catch phrase “ I was cool before it was cool.”The ring attire will be made by local seamstress, Rose Hitt, from Piedmont, WV.

Theme song

06/01/2013 - 06/02/2013

Philsdelphia underground band, The Great Socio's song "Stereo"" will be used for the entrance music.

Theme saying will be chosen

06/05/2013 - 06/06/2013

"I was cool before it was cool" will be his signature saying and catch phrase.

Signature move

08/03/2013 - 08/04/2013

There will be 2 signature moves, one will be "the anarchist's elbow", which will be a flying elbow drop from the top rope. The second will be the "vegan's vengeance" which will be variation of DDT.

Decision of management not being present at ringside

12/01/2013 - 12/02/2013

There will be no management present at ringside. Hipsters are loners.

Shopping the trained wrestler to promotions

01/15/2014 - 01/30/2015

There are 5 north eastern promotions that I will present the wrestler to first. They are Maryland Championship Wrestling, Ohio Valley Wrestling (developmental territory for WWE), Eastern Wrestling Alliance, Ring of Honor, and Dynamite Championship Wrestling. There are many other avenues to pursue but this will be the starting point.
