2 Characteristics of Gimmick:
Brief Bio/History: Andrew Adonis is a talent agent and mixed martial artist. He grew up in New York, New York until the lights of Hollywood called his name. It was there that he started the successful agency Adonis Studios and trained at the best MMA gyms as athletic recreation. Eventually, he transitioned to several professional fights and was undefeated as an MMA fighter until leaving the octagon behind. He is a smooth-talker and a smooth fighter, and even in his school days was top of the wrestling team and a constant hit with the ladies. The man calls himself a "maker of champions", claiming to be behind the success of many wrestlers and MMA superstars both in the ring and on the set. He can make anyone's career "astonishing", and at the same time can advance his own ends.
Adonis's interest in the wrestling business came two years ago when his former client, Joseph Cross, was thrown out of MMA for being too dangerous and injuring opponents. Adonis seized the chance and ran with it, marketing Cross as a man "too dangerous for the octagon" and following him into the squared circle. Ever since then, Adonis Studios picked up clients from both wrestling and MMA and Adonis Studios made a killing. Now, Adonis feels it's time to transition into the ring himself, using his MMA training and everything he learned from Cross to make his mark. He's also up for managing any superstar requires his services as long as he can see you have the spark.
Comes out in his gold suit and aviators, finishing up an important phone call. Once he hangs up and puts his phone away, he follows behind his charge (or lags just behind if his charge isn't the type for close contact) offering words of encouragement. The grin never leaves his face. He makes sure to point out his charge to the audience to big him or her or them up.
The lights in the arena go out suddenly, with the exception of a lone spotlight shining down onto the stage. Adonis steps into it, shadow-boxing, and bathes in the flashes of the cameras of the paparazzi in the front row as the intro plays. With the clash of the cymbals, the lights turn gold and he walks to the ring, occasionally shadow-boxing, grinning the whole way through. He makes sure to pose to the crowd before ascending the steel steps, climbing the turnbuckle, and posing for the audience by holding his fists in the air and then pointing at his bright grin. He hops off the turnbuckle, removes his jacket and glasses, and kisses his right glove, blowing it towards his opponent. He then puts up his dukes in the proper stance.
