Wrestlers of LAW History

Unread post by CaptainL »

Hello again, my fellow degenerates!

For those of you who have been following LAW Magazine (you should, it's been great fun), you may recognize my recurring feature, Looking Back with Eiji Matsumoto, which just published its second edition (the first one is here!). For those who don't, the basic gist is that Eiji Matsumoto, my hot-headed, foul-mouthed old school wrestling purist who is definitely not supposed to be an unflattering parody of a certain controversial real-life wrestling manager, promoter, and podcaster, gives a blow-by-blow account of an old wrestling match (let's say before 2010 or so) to talk about how the old ways were so much better than the outlaw mudshow nonsense LAW is doing. The feature has been a big success so far, and I'd love to expand it, so I felt it was about time I started putting together who I had to work with!

Of course, this could be used for more than just the articles. Want to have a character bring up a historic event in wrestling, or train under an established name, or just to be a fan of superstar of the past eras? This is the place to go for that! In the name of building on the collective universe we've established for LAW, I'd like to use this thread as a database of veteran wrestlers that have been established in LAW canon.

If you've established a historic wrestler in your RPing - either as an active member of the roster who's been wrestling for years, or as a mention in a character's backstory as a family member or trainer (or, hell, if you just want to make someone up, that's fine too!) - this is the place to list them. Just give a description, the era they were active in, and a link to their profile if applicable, and we can use it as a reference!

I'll start with my own:
  • Ole Ostberg - Grandfather of Astrid, active 1930s - 1950s. Old-style powerhouse from Norway. Deceased.
  • Lars Ostberg - Father of Astrid, active mid-1980s - 1990s (with some indie appearances since). Old-style powerhouse from Norway, mainly a tag team star with his brother Hans but had a singles run.
  • Hans Ostberg - Brother of Lars and uncle of Astrid, active mid-1980s - 1990s. Old-style powerhouse from Norway, mainly a tag team star with his more popular brother Lars.
  • Akira Koizumi - Aunt of Sachiko, active late 1980s - early 2000s. Veteran of the joshi boom of the 80s and 90s, currently owns a notoriously strict wrestling school.

Asai Rei - (Active 1989 - 1997) A technical lightweight that used to go toe to toe against the biggest in her league, both in names and sizes!! She ran long-lasting feuds with the likes of Dana Ashford, Cyber Widow, and Alaina Sanders. Nicknamed the Blue Star for her unquestionable popularity along her days. She ushered in the golden age of lightweights in her career as she took belts spanning different circuits and promotions all around Japan and the world. But her retirement came in 1997 after happily marrying Mita Minamoto, the direct descendant of the famous Minamoto Clan. And thus ending the golden era of lightweights with her.

Daichi Yamazaki "The Titan" - Active 1970's to early 1990's - An oldschool powerhouse masked wrestler who stood at a whopping 7'2 feet tall. Started out wrestling in his native country of japan where he dominated the heavyweight division before setting out to wrestle all over the world, where he would win and defend multiple Heavyweight belts over the course of his almost 20 year career. He was a pure babyface for his whole career, though he was seen by some to be a controversial figure for his old-fashioned and misogynistic opinions regarding women's wrestling. Retired in his 40's to start a family, though as he was never unmasked in his career nobody knows what he truly looked like and thus is able to enjoy his retirement in anonymity.
