More Details
Appearance

He kinda looks like Mike Patton.

Ring Attire

Ring attire consists of black short tights and black boots, black pads for the knees and elbows and black sweat bands on both wrists.

Personality

An indy veteran who never made it big. Self-belief combined with a number of personal problems, notably alcohol addiction, plagued his career. Dionysus is now sober and as fit as ever, desperate not to be just another wrestler.

Personality-wise he is sullen and thoughtful. Not really a trash talker or arrogant, just a vet trying to find his way in the wrestling world.

History

John's wrestling career is long but bears little success. He spent much of twenties in the indy scene, but was constantly battling with alcohol addiction.

 

2011 was his breakthrough year: he sobered up and signed for WWA in Autumn 2011. He joined at a time of instability, but had something of a star turn in the tournament held under Andy Seeley's administration.

He returned again in 2012 under the latest re-launch, but again the promises of owners failed to materialise. It looked like the WWA legacy Dionysus craved would never reach fruition. However, after discussions with Dominic Whitfield and Stu Savage, and much soul-searching, Dionysus believed he owed WWA something for being the fed that 'took a chance on him' when he was down and out. The only way he felt he could repay that debt was to become part of its 'rebirth'.
