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