El Cabron Dossier
BACKGROUNDReal Name: Erik Black
Nicknames: The Goat Bastard
Hometown: Indianapolis, In
Looks: El Cabrón is a pasty white guy from the Midwest, with an upper body decorated in ink, hair, and scar tissue. Notable tattoos include an elaborate goat-head on the back, a cannabis leaf on the left bicep encircled within the word “DOPESMOKER”, and a black sickle on his inner right forearm. It’s rumored he bears a specific tattoo for every one of the gimmicks he’s used throughout his career. Has a mane of stringy dark brown hair and hobo beard surrounding an impish brown-eyed faced.
ENTRANCETheme Music: “Holy Mountain” by Sleep
Ring Entrance: Arena fills with guitar drone… lights may come down at bigger events. El Cabrón emerges, spinning out like the Tazmanian Devil and caps it off with by stopping himself by a big double-fist pump to charge up the crowd… only to find himself facing the wrong way. He realizes his error, corrects himself with a 180 degree spin and shakes it off with a goatish to the fans.
Ring Attire: Cabrón wrestles in baggy black karate pants and black wrist bands -- he prefers to wrestle using no footwear. His mask is mainly composed of a red and black-lined face portion that covers everything from around the cheeks to the top of the head, with straps around the side and chin. The eyes and mouth are plainly visible, and the mask comes with two foam “goat horns” jutting out from the upper forehead. To the ring, he will occasionally wear a black leather duster.
WRESTLER CODEAlignment: Face
Gimmick: Rey Amarillo is your textbook masked mystery luchadore wrestler. The mystery surrounding him isn’t so much around his identity, but what he’s trying to accomplish. Says little to nothing, or nothing at all if he feels there’s nothing needed to be said. Always seems to be letting on that he knows something that the rest of the world will come to know “in time…”. He acts as the leader of the team, and a friend and mentor to El Cabrón. Definitely the competent member of the group. Erik Black has been an individual who has employed a variety of names, faces, and gimmicks over the years, and comes off as an amalgam of all of them beneath the mask of El Cabrón. He often times comes off as a clown and an incompetent goofball on the level of your typical curtain jerk, but is known for having occasional and spontaneous flashes of grit and focused clarity where everything seems to come together for him and he fights with the skill of a Drunken Kung Fu master. This has always made him a bit of a wildcard in the ring, but prides himself on his level of unpredictability. He can be both entertaining and dangerous, providing a darker Yin to Rey Amarillo’s orderly Yang. Always starts the matches. Together, they form a sort of odd couple of wrestling, but one that seems highly bonded and trusting of each other, on an almost brotherly level. Rey Amarillo shows a great deal of patience and understand toward El Cabrón hijinks, always seeing him as an equal and vital half to the team’s chemistry, and the two seldom squabble over differences.
Tactics/Style: Pretty versatile in a lot of different styles -- has martial arts striking background, is technically proficient enough to counter almost any move or submission hold (earning
