Your Name: Nathan
Wrestler's name: "The Archduke of Mass Confusion" Alex Richards
Gimmick: Alex Richards entered the WCF as your average fun loving sociopath. His idea of fun however was generally quite sadistic. Due to a tragic past Alex used his massive life to take advantage of people and do almost anything he wanted in life. A man of his size would have been imposing enough but Alexander can also think, albeit in a bizarre twisted sort of logic. However after suffering a concussion at the hands of Logan and Oblivion Alex self medicated by abusing prescription drugs and alcohol. This allowed Alex to forget about his past and become a more fun loving individual for real this time. Due to the fact Alex didn't actually like his previous personality he has continued to try and medicate himself which has allowed him to enjoy life more... most of the time. Alex however maintains his violent tendencies in the ring and outside of the ring at times despite his best efforts.
Due to a highly traumatic childhood Alex Richards, who at the time called himself Alexander Richards seemed to have the primary goal of making people suffer and fear him. This lead to a prison record and eventually a career in professional wrestling. One day Alexander found himself in a match for a Hardcore Championship where he ended up sustaining a severe concussion. Alexander, in a haze, decided to medicate himself with a mixture of alcohol and pills, which had the side effect of allowing Alex to forget about that, or at least dull his past, and bring out his more good natured, albeit reckless side. Alex decided he didn't really like how he behaved when he was Alexander Richards, so he continued to medicate himself embracing his new found good nature. This lead to him creating his own brand of alcohol, Zim-Quila and much more success in the world of professional wrestling.
Alex is primarily known for his work within the Guardians stable where he is considered a wild card, notorious for his outside the box thinking and outlandish ideas which seem to work out for him far more often then they should. Alex also owns a bar, the Drunken Dragon, which also houses the headquarters for the Guardians.
Height/weight: 6'4 325 pounds
Hometown: Anyplace that needs pain, suffering, pills or Zim-Quila (real home town Chicago, Illinois)
Alignment (Face/heel/neutral): Cult Fan Favorite (Alex wrestles like a heel and in some ways still thinks like a heel. But due to his amusing and crazed antics a good portion of the fans cheer him. )
Appearance/attire: Attire: Alex has a shaved head and recently required a brownish red beard. He does however have several chest hairs. Alex wears a pair of black jeans and a orange t shirt with the slogan Drink Zim-Quila You Didn't Need Your Liver Anyways. He occasionally wears various colored ties to the ring as well depending on his mood. He always carries his black doctor's bag to the ring with him which can be loaded with absolutely anything from weapons, to a good stiff drink, to chicken wings, to a spare pair of underwear. You name it, it might be in the bag.
Known Associates: His half brother and cameraman Shaun Zach Richards, his girlfriend Rebecca Thatch
Pic Base- Erick Rowan (or Tor Johnson for "classic" Alex Richards)
Entrance and music: (NOTE ON ENTRANCES: Please try and keep lyrics to a minimum, and try to keep your entrance itself to a few paragraphs or so at most. Be detailed, but sometimes less is more!)
( The opening guitar solo of I'm Not Like Everybody Else by The Kinks begins and as the lyrics start Alex Richards walks towards the ring with a huge smile on his smile. He holds his doctor's bag in one hand and with the other he takes turns slapping hands, hugging, signing autographs, high fiving, and occasionally delivering a more good natured then used to hard slap to a fan's hand. He walks towards the ring with what appears to be an attempt at looking serious but it's more than likely he's putting it on. )
Kyle Steel: Currently on the way to the ring, weighing in at 325 pounds and hailing from anyplace that needs pain, suffering, pills, or Zim-Quila... "The Archduke of Mass Confusion" Alex Richards!!!
Alex eventually enters the ring after killing a few good minutes amusing himself. )

15. Tree of Despair ( Hangs his opponent upside down in the corner, bounces off of the ropes and throws his entire body against his trapped foe in a body check like move.)
16. Fish Hooking (sticks his fingers in his opponent's mouth and attempts to rip his face open with them, obviously not successful)
17. The Garvin Stomp
19. Corner Crush- Alex gets a head of steam and crunches his opponent in the corner. If the opponent falls down, or is driven down by a flurry of strikes. Alex will charge again this time nailing his opponent directly in the head with his backside.
1. Blatant Choke
2. High Angle boston crab
3. Spinning Full Nelson throw
4. Bear Hug (usually into a spinebuster)
5. Ringpost figure four ( often proceeded by slamming his opponent's leg into the post several times)
6. Torture Rack
7. Over the shoulder backbreaker
8. Crippler Crossface
9. The Richards Suffocanator- Alex sits on his opponent's face, this never gets a submission, obviously. Not used often.. is a tribute to his former tag team partner Jeff Purse
1. Hot Shot ( A favorite move of Richards. He executes it either on the top rope, or outside of the ring onto the ring apron or guardrail. )
3. Choke Sleeper into a DDT

22. Butterfly backbreaker
23. Release German suplex into the corner
24. Choke Toss (lifts his opponent up in a double handed choke then tosses him as far across the ring as he can.)
Aerial Moves- The big man does not go to the air very often. But he has the ability to do a few top rope moves.
1. Top rope clothesline
2. Top rope powerbomb
3. Zim-Quila Bomb- Climbs to the second rope.. grabs onto the top rope then propels himself backward onto his downed foe basically the Vader Bomb
Zim-Quila Hangover- Alex grabs his opponent for a choke slam but instead falls backward dropping his victim on his face. He often follows this up with either a submission hold such as the crippler crossface or the garvin stomp
The Final Enlightenment- Alexander lifts his victim up for a belly to back suplex, then wraps his hand around his throat effectively choke slamming him right down on his head as he completes the suplex.
Spiked Samoan Punch- Samoan Spike
Sanity Slip- Sits on the top turnbuckle and positions opponent for a powerbomb off the top rope. During the descent he executes a lung blower driving both knees into the back of his victim.
The Unconscious Truth- Alex lifts his victim up for a press slam then dumps him over the top rope to the floor. He can also set this move up when his opponent is on the floor for other reasons. He follows him to the floor then boots him in the gut and lifts him for a powerbomb. He gets a running start and slams his opponent's head after off the ring post. He rolls him back in for the (hopefully) easy pinfall.
The God Slayer- After defeating Odin Balfore with his moonsault Alex added it to his move set. It is very rarely used and only in important matches, even more rarely kicked out of.. the opponent is more likely to move before impact.
Favorite Weapon: Alex carries a black old style doctor's bag to the ring with him. It contains any number of small weapons to be used. These include a bag of powder, brass knuckles, a bag of tacks, and his favorite a glass covered glove. He does not, of course, limit himself to just weapons from his bag and will use anything around ringside he thinks of. It also often contains.. a random grey tabby alley cat and occasionally joke weapons which Alex might attempt to use on his opponents. You just never know. Alex is also never seen without his giant rusty bed spring which he considers the hardcore championship. He sometimes tries to use it as a weapon but you know.. not very effective.
