It would be Ospreay-Ricochet 3. They wrestled at the Saturday Evolve show mania weekend.

I have NEVER received the respect I deserve as the leader and founder of The Masterflock, the internet's largest and oldest Christopher Masterpiece fan group in all of history, and I DEMAND that changes. From now on, you will respect Skinty McEdger!



To return for a second to strange gimmicks, the greatest heel gimmick I've ever heard of was from the 80's and the dying days of the old British wrestling scene. I'm told someone worked almost exclusively the working mens clubs in the mining towns as Margret Thatchers illegitimate son. I've never been able to find any details on who he was or anything more about the gimmick but a couple of the old Joint Promotion workers mentioned him to me in passing.

That might well be one of the greatest cheap heat gimmicks ever.

Yeah I mean, you can't really compare them to other wrestling shows. ISW was more like a sort of rocky horror/drag show type of strange underground subversive comedy but applied to pro wrestling. My dad, who hates pro wrestling and most forms of combat based entertainment used to go to their shows because he thought it was hilarious. I mean, they had a guy in a wookie suit named Macho Sasquatcho.

He was never on tough enough but he is a ufc dude

I haven't watched him wrestle but people seem to like him well enough so i'd imagine at worst he's decent in ring but really charismatic? i dunno

He started out OK but he's been improving at every show and had some really good matches at Wrestlemania weekend. Very good heel.

Riddle's MMA stuff was overshadowed by the fact he had zero filter when it came to talking to the press. Fight-wise, he was seen as a future prospect but liability because he could not stop smoking pot during fight week.

Wrestling-wise, he's really green but developing well.

I caught some of Riddle's match with Cedric Alexander and he looked pretty good for being pretty new to wrestling. He's been doing it like what, a year maybe a year and a half tops?
