"Out of my Way" by Seether
HOW Rookie Entrance:
An electric guitar tremolo picks it’s way through the PA system, before erupting into “Out of My Way” by Seether. Hannibal Frost pushes out from behind the curtain and steps to the top of the entrance ramp, gauging the crowd reaction. With a satisfied nod, he continues down the ramp, pointing a finger at one of the cameramen near the ring apron. The camera guy apprehensively steps forward, only for Frost to stuff a ten dollar bill in his cowboy hat and wedge it on the man’s head. With a reassuring pat and a thumbs up, Frost turns around and rolls into the ring.
(He’ll either give a respectful nod to his opponent, or stare them down, based on moral alignment. If he’s in the ring first, he generally leans against a turnbuckle and acknowledges random members of the crowd until his opponent’s music hits.)
After the match, if Frost is shown leaving ringside, make sure he get’s his hat back!!!
If ring attire is needed for some type of description: Urban camo BDU pants, sleeveless compression shirt, fingerless gloves.
Finisher: The Ankle Lock
Description: …the ankle lock! Only thing of note is when Frost locks it in, he drops to trap that leg Kurt Angle style. Doesn’t turn it into an unbreakable hold, obviously.
Signature: The Cold Truth
Description: ‘Step-up Enzuiguiri’ to side standing opponent for direct hit to the back of the head, ensuring opponent hits the mat face down.
- Catch 'Em on the Rebound (Propelled hip toss that sends opponent shoulder rolling off the mat and into the nearest turnbuckle post. Frost catches them with another move off the rebound.)
- Various "Friendly" Arm Drags and Wrist Locks (Classic chain wrestling for gauging opponent skill at start of match)
- Various Situational Dropkicks
- Snap Suplex
- Fisherman Suplex
- Hammerlock Face Buster
- Drop Toe Hold to Leg Trap Ankle Lock (Simple, but always effective)
- Leg Trap Spine Buster w/ Gator Roll into Ankle Lock
- Horizontal Diving Clothesline (When he's feeling lucky, usually bombs except for special moments)
About the Wrestler
Frost’s primary fighting style is All-Around Technical while he’s fresh, as he’s seeking to smoothly transition into something from his moveset. His offense consists mostly of trying to set up opportunities for the Ankle Lock. Anything that doesn’t land an opponent face down is Frost prepping for the Cold Truth. Even on defense, Frost will look to counter whatever he can into some form of the Ankle Lock or Cold Truth.
Frost will go Brawler if he loses his temper, but he will only lose his temper on an opponent being a little too disrespectful. To his benefit or detriment, once Frost has landed the Cold Truth, he will try to execute it over and over again until he believes the opponent get’s what he’s trying to say. This probably won’t happen much(probably reserved for no-shows).
Frost believes in the spirit of friendly competition as long as his opponent makes the same effort. With that, and his years of in-ring experience, Frost will never lose his temper when he’s truly bested. Cheating will clearly upset the man, though.
QUICK IMPORTANT POINTS:
He doesn’t really use Submission holds besides the Ankle Lock, and some Wrist Locks to start a match.
His strikes are mainly kick focused, but he has trouble striking high without jumping. Mainly throws punches while trading blows.
He likes various leaping/diving clotheslines when he’s having fun! (He’s still trying to “master the technique”. They generally backfire.)
If an opponent earns his respect, he will always shake their hand after the match, win or lose. Even if he has to drag himself up. (Barring unconsciousness, of course)
He won’t ever pull anything dirty or cheap or try to cheat.
He doesn’t run away, but he knows when he’s been outclassed by a better man and won’t push a knockdown, drag out finish with a face.
He will, however, fight a heel like there is no tomorrow. He hates being pushed around by someone he believes to be morally bereft.
