Shows how much I've been inactive, I had no idea Ripley was done. He looks sleek, and Bain looks beastly. And that match was a rough & tumble brawl. You've gotta love when the AI doesn't shit the bed and actually puts on a good show. Can't wait to get the big fellas on my roster. Oh, and I've actually completed Finesse. I've just been to busy to get any pics of him, or even upload him. I wanted to at least get some of my other guys and gals done, but life's been doing what life do, so it hasn't happened yet.

Hope you do, dude. I remember your Vyktoria Addams CAW from 2K18 and she was phenomenal.  Would love to play as her again.

Dude, Bain looks awesome for 2023!!! And that match was slobberknocker. If you do pull the trigger on a PWN reunion show, you know I'm good for my characters. As a matter of fact I'm working on Jonny Knuxx right now, formerly Jonny Punch. And I'll probably make Bull Nagano as well.

The elder sister of Nic & Ric, "Big" Billie Bruza is a veteran of the industry of over 16 years. The 38 y/o Billie is renowned for being a massive woman, standing an even 6'0" and tipping the scales at 290-300lbs depending on what she ate for dinner. She's got a mean streak that matches her mass, and she revels in taunting and goading her opponents when she has the advantage...which is often. An avid trash talker, she can oftentimes be seen jaw jacking with fans as much as she does her opponent. Between the ropes, she's a master of throwing her weight around, using her natural power and mass to crushing effect. Big Billie is a BIG, MEAN WRECKIN' MACHINE...and she's fixin' to give the competition a good ol' fashion "Bruzin'".

While new in the context of this is the 1st time I've made her in a WWE game, Billie Bruza (formerly Bertha) is not new within my universe. She's existed for years in Fire Pro Wrestling World. She's an homage to the late Dee Booher, best known in wrestling as Queen Kong and Matilda The Hun, who passed away in 2022 at the age of 73. Among my female character she's tied for the oldest on my roster with Heather Fierhart, both being 38 years old. As far as her storyline, she's competed in my Fire Pro organization Action Pro Wrestling (APW) for the majority of her career, and has decided it's time to branch off and compete in other companies. In terms of gameplay, she's exactly what you'd expect...a big, slow bruiser.  Seeing her throw around the much smaller, prettier female Originals is quite satisfying...lol.

Since losing the CAW Women's Title to Olympia Marstorius in 2021, Crystal's career had hit a stand still. Falling in critical loses to Callista Jay, Chloe Lockhart, Cleo Jones and Ashley Diamond...it seemed as if Crystal has lost her edge. Once considered the best technical wrestler in CAW, male or female, it appeared as if the competition had caught up to her, and the fans had turned on her. Try as she would, she couldn't get back into the win column until a chance reunion with her Winsor Academy classmates Ainsley Winsor and Nigel Sledge...aka The Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. For weeks they tried to convince her that trying to endear herself to the unappreciative fans was what was holding her back, but she bucked against the idea for several weeks as the losses continued to pile on. Finally, in a tag team match teaming with Heather Fierhart against Callista and Britt Monroe, she snapped after being pinned yet again by Callista. She's proceed to assault all 3 women to a chorus of boos before leaving the arena. For several weeks she was nowhere to be found, until she made her return with a new look, and a new attitude. "The Pinnacle" had arrived. Now firmly aligned with DRS...and seemingly dating Nigel Sledge it seems...Crystal has found the formula to get back to her winning ways, being a cutthroat shooter. The once beloved Crystal Bayless is now looking out for only herself, and looking to regain what she believes is rightfully hers...the CAW Women's Title.

So, I've been toying with the idea of flipping Crystal heel for a while now, and this year is the year I finally pulled the trigger. Heel Crystal is a cold, calculating, egotistical narcissist who believes now that the reason she fell so hard from the top be because she cared too much what the fans thought of her. Well, those days are gone. Now aligned with Winsor and Sledge and calling herself "The Pinnacle", she's returned to form and aims to avenge every lose she's suffered the last 2 years. attire 1 bares similarity to her classic look, save for showing off a bit more skin with the tights, while attire 2 is completely new. I wanted to give her a more sleeker, dangerous look with a high ponytail.

Once one of the most feared and loathed female competitors in CAW, Dominique is now beloved by the fans after developing the unlikely friendship she's made with Tanden Fearse. Forced to team up with each other in the inaugural CAW Women's Tag Team title tourney when their original partners were unable to compete last year, which they fell short of winning in the finals to Callista Jay and Eve Williams, the duo continued to pair up to the initial reluctance of Dom. But as the weeks and months passed, Tanden slowly managed to break down the walls of Dom's steely persona and the world would come to find out behind that stoic scowl is a bubbly, fun loving farm girl from Montana. As the team "Fearse Domination", Tanden & Dom are still chasing that win against their rivals for the WTTTs, but her newfound change in attitude has also come with a new found drive to become even better as a wrestler. Now showing off her athleticism with a few new tricks picked up from her bestie, Dominique Lashay looks better than ever.

Pretty much the same as with Crystal, turning Dom face felt like the right thing to do, especially since Billie's pretty much become the new "Monster Heel" of my women's division. Her design hasn't changed, but I opted to give her hair a chop into a Bob cut as it makes her look less menacing. I ALSO opted to give her make-up, as the new, nicer Dominique has gotten more attention from the fellas, so naturally she wants to start looking her best.

Chicago's own Evelyn "Eve" Williams...the "E" of the B.E.C.H. faction, has come into her own in 2022-23. The 29 y/o giantess has become one of the most feared competitors in the CAW women's division, showing impressive improvement in the ring. In fact, she's regarded as the most improved talent on the roster since her debut in 2019. The former standout center for Chicago University opted for Pro Wrestling when the likelihood of her draft status in the WNBA fizzled because she dominated in a small, uncompetitive conference...and the move has paid off. In 2022 she won her 1st championship, becoming half of the inaugural CAW Women's Tag Team champions alongside stable mate Callista Jay. Dedicating herself to the craft, she's packed on over 20lbs of muscle since her debut, and is now a legit powerhouse along the likes of Dominique Lashay and Shannon White. Now coming into her own, and into her prime...questions are abound as to if Eve surpasses her stable mates and earns a shot at the Women's World Title.

While her look as only changed slightly, her persona has changed immensely. Initially just a sidekick for Britt, I've gradually evolved her into being the enforcer of BECH, and evolved her moveset accordingly. This year sees Eve reach her "final form" as I'm satisfied with not just her look, but the moveset I created for her, a balance of power moves and moves that utilize her height.

The "Magic City Superstar" is no stranger to controversy. Seemingly ousted from the business 5 years ago for what's best considered as "inappropriate misconduct", Kiki Chanel has spent that time in the independent circuit, where she'd garner a following that dwarfed her initial run in wrestling. She has no shame in flaunting her "assets" to get what she wants, in and out of the ring. Her shocking return to CAW was completely unexpected, as was the fact that it was at the aid of Nikki Roland, who is notoriously known as a lone wolf who trusts no one. The Atlanta born duo seem to have formed an alliance with the goal of taking out Nikki's longest standing rival Heather Fierhart and her protege Rosie Harrex. Back in the spotlight, the "BBP" (Baddest Bitch Periot") looks to steal the show.

So yea, last I'm I made Kiki was 2018. There's no rhyme or reason why she missed the last 5 games. Just laziness on my part. I decided to give Nikki some back-up, as I toyed with the idea when last I made Kiki. Hers is a COMPLETE redesign from her previous iteration. The only thing that's the same is the face texture and morphing. I decided to tap Nikki Minaj for the inspiration of Kiki's new look, which meant I had to give her Donk. Thankfully we have a Donk body type for the ladies. Basically, Kiki's put on some pounds and spent a LOT of time in her local tattoo parlor since the last time you've seen her. As her gimmick now is less being a "Doll" and more being a "Sex Symbol", her moveset incorporates some of the more...how you say "raunchy" selections for her arsenal.

To this day, little is known of the woman named "Perxephone". Since emerging from the shadows in 2017 seemingly from the call of Helena Troy, she's been a fixture at "The Wicked Witch of The North's" side. In 2022, signs of decent between her and Helena became evident as she interacted with Helena's half sister Ashley Diamond. Ashley's attempts to appeal to whatever bits of sanity existed within the feral Perxephone ultimately failed to an extent. She seemingly has begun to show signs of her own free will, and in recent months has had clashes of ideals with Helena and Lola Valentine. Perxephone seems to now search for a sense of purpose beyond being a weapon, which is slowly causing her to drift from her Coven sisters. In recent weeks, she's been seen lurking in the shadows following Ashley, yet anytime Ashley makes an attempt to interact with her, she scurries off into the shadows once more. Could it be the demon from the other side of darkness finally wishes to stand in the light? Or will her sisters in darkness pull her back into the black?

Perx is another character I'm starting to evolve into a babyface. As a character, she's still very enigmatic...and to this day I've STILL not concocted an origin story for her. She just exists...for now anyway. I've got ideas on how to expand her character and build towards a proper backstory through another character I've yet to release. Actress Eva Green is the base of her face texture, and the character is OF COURSE inspired by Rosemary, Daphe and Su Yung.

Among the latest graduates of The Firehouse, Twyla "Twilight" Moon has aspired to be a pro wrestler since she was a child. The Washington native has studied the business since as long as she can remember, and at the age of 18, packed her bags and moved to Los Angeles for the chance to train at the famed wrestling academy. Breaking into the business through smaller California based promotions while training under childhood hero Heather Fierhart she's honed a unique wrestling style all her own. A background in gymnastics makes her extremely agile and flexible. Newly signed to CAW June, the upside of this young woman is sky high, and with her beauty and talent, she's destined to become a front runner within the future of the CAW women's division.

Twyla is LITERALLY brand new. Born of an AI art render I made that I absolutely fell in love with, I HAD to turn it into a character. Much like my other new characters, all art assets and textures on her are AI generated. I'm probably gonna end up changing her hair to the same dreads Jay-J wears eventually.

"The Texas Bull". "The Big Ticket". "The One Man Army". "The Destroyer". Whatever you want to call him, Ethan Bain is one of the most fearsome big men in wrestling. Standing 7 feet tall and weighing nearly 350lbs, this massive corn-fed colossus breaks the mold of what defines a giant with his unholy mix of power, agility and athleticism. Capable of military pressing a man over his head, then following up with a bottom rope moonsault, Bain's skill set is unmatched among men his size. The youngest ever XWA World Champion, having won it at 24 years old, Bain's list of defeated opponents...known as "The Body Count" reads as a hall of fame roster of former champions in their own right. The Borger, Texas native had taken a break from the business during the pandemic, but never stopped training. Well documented is the relationship he has with Simon Fierhart, who bequeath the nickname :The Destroyer" to him, he makes his return to wrestling looking to pick off where he left off. The time has once again come for all foolish enough to face him...to "Stand and be counted."

Bain is among 5 characters I crafted for use of friends to role play during the e-fed era of XWA. Fun fact, the plan was originally to have him be part of the VWE roster as well...but that fell through and his handler...who also roleplayed "Famous" Jimmy Ames decided to stick to one fed. The original concept of Bain was born from inspiration of...you guessed it...Sid Justice. Over the years, I've aged him appropriately and incorporated other sources into his design. Present day Bain is pretty much a hybrid of Sid, the late Brodie Lee and Braun Strowman. His persona is pretty cut and dry, a stoic country boy who lets his actions speak for him. This is evident by his signature line "My daddy always said if you ain't got nothin' nice to say, don't say anythin' at all. I'm done talkin'." He's not your conventional big man. He can cannon shot off of the ropes with low moonsaults and a springboard clothesline that can send him clean across the ring. Part of his draw has always been his the most agile 7 footer in wrestling, and this version of him doesn't change that formula.

All of the above are available on CC right now for all platforms. Tags are OZCAW and CAW23.

Nothing better than logging in here and seeing you've released a crap-ton of characters. They all look amazing, but Billie's definitely the stand-out for me because she's such a departure from your norm. And I love how she's an homage to Dee Booher, most people don't even know who she is. Well, most people in my age range that is. Queen Kong was a menace in the 80s. The gradual evolution of the stories are also well done. Crystal's a heel, Dominique's a face and Perxephone is slowly clawing her way out of the dark into the light. Gotta love it!

And then there's Bain. Like I said on your YT vid, he looks beastly. Jonny Knuxx still remembers the night Bain, Jimmy Ames and Evan Slade flipped the Port-A-Potty he was in. It haunts him in his dreams, and he's never been able to use one ever again. 😆

Found memories of the *censored*ery we did in XWA. Knuxx still owes Holly a date I hope you know...LOL.

Already got Lashay & Ethan Bane yesterday. Can't believe Lashay's backstory. The fact that she's teaming with Tanden Fearse BLOWS MY MIND!! Do have plans for Lashay but it involves her being a Heel & form a Tag Team with Tiffany Straton. 

That's the beauty of wrestling. You can be a face in one company, and heel in another. I like the idea of her being Tiffany's partner and bodyguard.

Verena? Right on. And Shannon White, that moves the needle as well. Really interesting in seeing those 2 because unless i'm mistaken, they haven't been seen since 19.

EDIT: And Lakota too! Her and Gabriel in the next pack is def interesting as well.

Ethan Bain and Scott O'Dell have unfinished business from PWN. 😁 You never cease to amaze with your character design, old man. If O'Dell wasn't already accounted for, he'd definitely be hitting up and hitting on Twyla Moon. She's a babe.

Speaking of Twyla, here she is in action against "The Abyssal Witch" to tide everyone over before the update. Things are moving along as I'm almost done with the fellas. I'm also including a "surprise" release that many of the old schoolers are going to appreciate. A character not seen on these forums for a very, verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry long time. A certified legend in the E-fed ranks.

Yes he is. An update version of Evan is on CC currently.

MUTHA*censored*IN' JONNY PYRO, BABY!!! He looks amazing!!! I remember the character vividly. He was one of the OGs of the E-Fed era. Never got the chance to work with him, but I loved the mythos and lore behind his character and how he was connected to so many other characters. You've done an awesome job bringing him into the modern era.

And then let's talk about Vikki Jaxx. I instantly see where her inspiration comes from. She looks both menacing and hawt all at once lol. The tattoo work on her is nothing short of incredible. She's a very visually appeasing character, just couldn't take my eyes off her. And the way you tweaked Rhea's entrance for her with whatever song you used for her theme? Perfection. She'll be a welcomed addition to anyone's roster.

Yea...I've been neck deep in Mass Effect legendary edition and the moment I saw the character Jack in ME2 I was like "yep, that's gonna be my next new female character". I LOVE the way she came out, though I'm not a fan of her hair. I wish some of the ponytails that the men have (namely Damien Priest's) where available for the ladies, as that would fit her a bit better. That being said, she came out better than I had anticipated. As far as JP goes, about a month ago I touched base with his creator on FB and asked his permission to breath life back into the character. He's a family man and runs a business now, so he's LONG since retired from CAW making. Seeing as the character Pyro and Jayson Jones have a long standing history and friendship, I felt it only fitting to bring him back into the fold. I made his look based on the very last version of Pyro ever made, which was from 2008 on the PS3. Obviously I aged him up appropriately, and gave him as close to his old moveset as I could seeing as the moveset system is COMPLETELY different than what it was in SVR08.

But yea, they'll be uploaded today. Working on the preview stuff as I type this.

Vikki's resemblance to Sasha Gray is uncanny. I know she's not who inspired the character, but she does facially look a lot like Sasha.  Just sayin' lol. With every post and every upload you continue to remind us why you're on of the OG of the original CAW scene.

Creativity knows no age, though I won't be doing this forever. Eventually I'll move on like so many other have. But for the foreseeable future, that's not happening.

As promised, here comes the next update!!! 8 characters...7 male and 1 female.

px6oCZT.jpg

Believe it or not, Arseniy here is my 1st Russian character in over 15 years. The last one I made went by the name of Vasily Rasputin, but I gave the character to my brother @Thr33X a few years ago. Never made one again, until now. Arseniy "The Arsenal" Volkov is a different take on the Russian Grappler gimmick. Most Russians (including Vasily) are portrayed as being from downtrodden, militaristic backgrounds. They see westerners as weaklings. They're stoic, unfeeling and emotionless. Arseniy is none of those things. Arseniy is the son of a powerful Russian oligarch and retired Combat Sambo champion Arcadiy Volkov. Raised in wealth his entire life, Arseniy has received the finest training from the best instructors and schools in the world. A prodigy of multiple martial arts including Sambo, Judo, TKD and BJJ to name a few, he prides himself as "the most complete combat athlete on Earth". He's brash, arrogant and loves flaunting his wealth and status. But he can back every ounce of his bravado up as he's an athlete unlike none other, winning every tournament he's ever competed in. He now sets his sights on professional wrestling, to further bolster his status and show the world what he already believes...he's the best, period.

Arseniy was a spur of the moment creation, as on twitter @White Leather Jacket made mention of Russian character gimmicks and I came realize...I had no Russians. Well...no Russian males anyway. A day later, I had Arseniy completed. All art assets on him is AI generated, including his face texture. His move-set was painstakingly crafted to be combat centric. He performs like a fighter, not a wrestler. His attires are cut and dry, the 1st being a vale tudo based look, the 2nd being the traditional combat sambo uniform with his logo work adorning it. Arseniy is going to be a focal point of my new generation of talent, and I look forward to evolving the character further.

OcvJN5F.jpg

"The Natural" Dylan Brody is among my "2nd generation" of characters, dating back to 2002. Dylan himself is a 2nd generation wrestler, being the son of one of Simon Fierhart's oldest friends and allies Dan "The Boulder" Brody. One of Simon's 1st students, Dylan has come a long way since his debut, undergoing many character changes. But what hasn't changed is he's one of the 1st "hybrid" characters I've made...being a bigger, stronger character capable of moving like a crusierweight. In recent years, I've altered his look from bein Randy Orton-esqe to something more akin to Buddy Matthews. Since turning him heel, he's maintained a consistent mean streak and has become a more cerebral character. I debated redoing his art using AI, but if it ain't broke...don't fix it.

Z0kZy7X.jpg

Unlike Dylan, Gabe's undergone a complete overhaul...including his gimmick. 2 years ago when I changed his last name to "Niyol" (Navajo for Wolf) from Dezba, I went for a more wolf themed motif for him. This year I double down on it, as he's now known as "The Red Wolf" Gabriel Niyol. Embracing his heritage as a Navajo warrior, I went with an attire as similar to Tatanka's as I could get seeing as of all years THIS is the one 2K decide to remove his creation parts from CAW mode. So no loincloth of head dress. (That pissed me off, but what can you do, eh?) Like all of my updated characters, the art assets are AI generated. I'm really digging the way he came out. Between the ropes he fights similarly to his mentor Simon Fierhart, swapping out Simon's more violent moves for moves that better fit Gabe's free-flowing style. He still uses the Tomahawk as a signature though. That's never changing...lol.

This one is near and dear to me. Jonny Pyro is a character created by one of my oldest friends in the CAW community...who went by the same name as his character. We all pretty much started our journeys as creators at the same time me, my brother, JP, WLJ, @The 1 Man Horror Movie, @The Scorpion, and so many other now retired creators back in the early 2000s. By now the story of VWE is well known, but @lilsting10...creator of one of VWE's top characters Chris Lionheart put out a call here as VWE was looking for new talent, and we all answered. Pyro (character name John Pryor) would come to be one of the most prominent of our 1st class of E-fed characters, building a mythos and history over the next several years in VWE, LXW, XWA, TNB and other feds. Of note, JP and my own Jayson Jones were fast friends as characters, representative of how his creator and I became friends away from CAW making. But as time passed and everyone got older, our hobby of role playing dwindled. JP's creator got married, had kids and started his own business. By 2008, he pretty much retired from the scene...leaving a lasting legacy with his character that's still felt through many of us old schooler's creations.

Well, 2 months ago I caught up with JP on Facebook and we chatted it up. We talked about the old days, and I asked him for permission to bring Pyro into the modern era. He graciously gave me the go ahead, and what you see here is the end result. I decided to base 2023 Pyro on his last known attire, which was from 2008. I added the obvious age to him (he's 38) and created AI generated assets for him. Since the character Pyro was more of a prize fighter type, I didn't want to go to flashy, since this is a Jon Pryor returning to wrestling after a long layoff of being a family man. Rather than give him lots of ink, I decided to just stick with his signature dragon tat on the right arm, and gave him a new Detroit "D" on the left paying homage to his hometown, the Motor City. As far as his moves...that was tricky seeing as the way moves work...and even WHAT moves are in the game are different from SVR2008. So I did as best I could trying to recreate his move-set. Like I said, JP was a brawler at his base, but also had a lot of technical prowess and could take to the air when needed, so I tried to replicate his old style...along with a few new tricks. All and all I'm happy to bring the character forward, and share him with all of my fellow OGs who remember his significance to our community.

Speaking of blasts from the past, Lavar Justice is a character I last made waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2014. Originally based on Tough Enough contestant (and American Gladiator) Jesse "Justice" Smith, I made the character as the enforcer for a stable called the "Black Empire" consisting of him, Jeff "The BAM" Bambridge and Solomon King as rivals of Jayson Jones. Hell, I completely FORGOT about the character before I got access to an old image hosting account I had, where I'd uploaded pics of him. Pretty much decided "yea, I'll show you some love" from there...and this is the end result. I don't actually have a direction for the character since he's been out of the loop for so long, but I'll probably switch things up for him...making him an ally of Jay-J now.

The youngest of the original Fierhart siblings...Ryan Fierhart in recent years has become one of my top babyfaces. And why not? He looks the part. He's one of only 4 characters on my roster to be a grand slam champion. He's ALSO the husband to Ashley Diamond, now being married for 10 years, and having a 4 year old daughter. In fact, the marriage to Ashley...who was revealed to be the half sister of Helena, Kastor and Pollux Troy back in 2009 offset the over 100 year feud between the Fierhart and Troy clans. While they've made piece with the revelation, the bad blood between their older brothers...who have decades of history against each other, still lingers. At 34, Ryan's in the prime of his career and has long since stepped out of the shadow is his legendary older brother. With rivalries against the likes of Dylan Brody, Scott O'Dell, Kastor & Pollux Troy, Blake Evans, Cannon Webb and countless others...he's firmly set the tone as being one of the most competitive talents CAW has to offer.

Ryan's another one of my 2nd gen characters from the early 2000s. Originally created as pretty much a clone of Edge & Christian...he's long since evolved into a completely different character. Like Dylan, I didn't change anything aside from the layout of his attire, going with long sleeves instead of the elbow pad/wristband combo. His face texture is based on actor Charlie Hunman, and he's your classic speedster in the ring. Like Gabe, his moves are derivative of Simon's, swapping out the violence for more showy, flashier moves.

The "Red King". The "Usurper". By any other name, Sean Trueth's evolution from being a bright eyed babyface to becoming one of the most feared strikers in wrestling has been a legend in itself. One of the 1st graduates of Dru Mercer's Monster's Den wrestling academy, Trueth has tons of upside...but failed to deliver. Within 4 years, he'd bowed out of wrestling. He'd travel to Japan to learn of his roots, being half Japanese...where he'd learn he's the grandson of one of Japan's most fearsome warriors, Masato Tennouji...the man who gave Simon Fierhart the moniker "Kichiku-Kan"... The Destroyer. For the next few years he'd train under his grandfather, learning the ways of his family's art "Hakai-Ken"...the Fist of Destroyer. In 2018, he'd return to wrestling a new man, and cut forth a swath of destruction in his wake. Fully embracing his warrior routes, Sean Trueth has set out on a path to earn the one title that matters most to him...the title he believes is his birthright. But in order to earn it, he has to face and defeat "The King In Black" himself.

Trueth's character arc is one I've been evolving over the years, and it's soon coming full circle. When I redesigned Trueth to be a "boss level" character a few years ago, it was always my intention to eventually make him a rival of Simon's. Current day Sean is fixated with the notion that he is the true "Destroyer"...so that's naturally put him at odds with both Simon and the man Simon gave the moniker to himself...Ethan Bain. Sean's face texture is based off of actor Taylor Lautner, and his attire is pretty much the same as years past since I brought him back in 2018. In the ring, he's a vicious shooter using a plethora of martial art based offense. His goal is to hurt you...badly. And he does it with samurai-like precision.

We round this update up with LITERALLY my newest creation...as I just finished her a day ago. Victoria Jackson, aka Vikki Jaxx...is part of the graduating class of "The Foundation" that produced Connavar and IcONYC. Vikki was a troubled young woman with no past, as she was abandoned as a infant and raised in NYC's foster system. Her penchant for fighting constantly landed her in trouble, and she was never able to find a real home until she was 17...a mere year before she aged out of the system. That home, would be the home of Latoya Jones, Jayson Jones' older sister. At the time, her new foster brother & sister Cleo & Prentice was attending their uncle's new wrestling school...and reluctantly Vikki began joining them. It's there that she fell in love with the process. In wrestling, she could find an outlet for the chaos that existed in her core. Over the next few years, she'd train and perfect her persona, which was heavily influenced by another who she'd come to know as her "uncle and aunt"...Evan Slade and Fiona Weinstein-Slade...aka Synergi. Finding her love for wrestling merged with her love for metal music...Victoria Jackson would soon become Vikki Jaxx, driven by an unwavering need to "Bring Chaos To Order".

So yea, Vikki's heavily inspired by the character from Mass Effect 2 & 3 Jacqueline Voght...aka Jack. Saw the character and instantly fell in love. Jack is a heavily tattooed, chaotic, foul mouth, brooding badass...and conversely so is Vikki. I decided I would make her a babyface...pretty much the opposite of her tattooed contemporary Holly Woodz, with her other contemporary Perxephone riding the middle. Unlike her contemporaries...and other characters of this ilk...Vikki's not a brawler. In fact, she's quite technically sound. As a character, I've for big plans for her...which obviously ties into the long term plans I'm formulating for the 4th generation of characters I'm slowly developing.

And that's it. All 8 characters are available for download on all platforms. You will need ALL available DLC packs for them. Tags are of course CAW23 and OZCAW. Next on the docket...the female characters I mentioned;

This ain't even fair, bruh. I just had to free up some spots on my roster for this. The fellas all look bad-ass. I'm loving the backstory on Arseniy and I know you're gonna go all out on him as a character. Your rendition of Pyro looks awesome, and you definitely did the character well. Trueth is absolutely menacing. His entrance makes him feel like a God of War, which was clearly the intent. But the crown jewel of this batch for me is Jaxx. She's the most visually stunning female character you've made thus far. Watching her in action, you can't keep your eyes off her, and not because she's super hot or barely clothed like some other female originals out there. And your choices for her signatures and finishers are unique as well. I'd really like to know what she calls the moves actually. It's safe to say I'm definitely invested in how she evolves as a character.

Another fine round of creations, Sarge. You never disappoint.

This was a nice surprise to see last night.  All of them look fire and I'm slowly going through each of them.  Right now I got Lavar Justice going up against Anslem Carter.  Jack was one of my favorite Mass Effect characters too, so I'm looking forward to going to my account with the ladies on it and check out Vikki.

what they said. these new creations are outstanding. especially Arseniy, who i could def have running the table in an elimination chamber and winning with 5 eliminations.

and now i'm even more excited to see the ladies when they get uploaded....hoping Noelle, Emma and Skyler are in the near future, when they arrive.
