Brief Bio/History: A documentary film crew were in Nigeria to profile the savage tribal rituals of the remaining isolated villages of native Hausa people. They had heard legends of a real life giant, revered almost with a godlike respect by locals. They stumbled onto a remote village outside of Daura in the northern part of the country. There they found a man that their guide came to know as Jabari. Jabari was revered for his undefeated performances in the tribes bloody bare knuckle boxing rituals and was held as the human peak of Bori, a traditional African religion. Due to his size and skill, the tribesmen treated him not as a person, but as a god. Despite this, Jabari has little knowledge of most things, especially the modern world he would soon find himself part of.
The crew, after spending a week with the tribe saw a monetary opportunity with Jabari and used the awe and general naivety of the isolated tribesmen to lure Jabari away and bring him to America. After some time as a modern sideshow attraction, they decided to use his size and prowess in tribal combat sports to make the transition to mainstream combat sports. No boxing or MMA commission would sanction Jabari due to his size and lack of communication skills, so they turned to pro wrestling. After some time in smaller promotions, he caught the eye of WZCW talent scouts and was offered a contract.
Entrance Description: Jabari's handler leads him to the ring, complete with restraining devices to play to the crowd, as Jabari looks around the arena in awe of the things around him. The handler unshackles him and orders him into the ring. Jabari steps over the top rope and looks around with childlike enthusiasm until his handler orders him to fight.
Fighting Style: Brute strength. Uses his size to his full advantage while mixing in his boxing skills.
Previous Injuries/Character Psyche: While Jabari isn't the savage his handlers make him out to be, he is still from a remote part of the world and is ignorant to modern culture. This often leads him to lose focus while distracted by the bright lights of the big cities he visits. He is also almost completely under the control of his handlers, following their every command with little hesitation.
