Create A Professional Wrestling Gimmick or Persona Based On Your Own Personality Or The Oppposite?
I have created a few Bob Eager for example
Self help guru who gives people questionable advice.
Sometimes I qould tell peoople I am Mr. Authenticity and then claim Don’t be jealous
I spend a lot if my time telling people how authentic I am. The question is how authentic are you if you have to tell people you are ?
When I call myself something like Mr Authenticity it is a bit playful. I know I am not always authentic in every single way. Think of some wrestlers, remember Mr Perfect is he really perfect? No he is a great wrestler but no one is perfect. It’s a way of being playful to the audience. It is his way of playing an arrogant bad guy .
It’s part of creating a playful persona..
Another one I created I refer to as Professional Eye Candy.
‘I’m not just Candy yum yum’. Do I really think I’m some kind if visually stunning specimen? No of course not.
It’s my way of talking about body image and the reliance on looks.
Enough about me.
Now it’s your turn..
Create your own character or characters that could accentuate your greatest strengths or biggest weaknesses .
What’s your persona or gimmick ?
To recap create a wrestling persona or gimmick that exemplifies a part of your personality? Or show your darker side and the traits that concern you.
Either way it is cathartic and can help you come up with more stories to tell in a distinct voice.
Is it you or the complete opposite of who you want to be ?
Maybe your thinking this exercise is just not up your alley.
Not a wrestling fan but still ready for a next step. Let’s cater it to your own goals
