Name: Mark Sommers
Hometown: Las Vegas, Nevada
Weight: 245 Lbs.
Entrance Music: "Come With Me" - Puff Daddy
Entrance: Do Not Cut/Paste – requires slight modification depending on him entering first, or second/later!
The lights dim… and the music of Puff Daddy’s “Come with Me” hits the BlazenTron. Strobe lights begin flickering through out the arena… and from the backstage steps Chamelion. He stands in profile to us, head low and his hair covering his face…. As the music picks up… the lyrics begin…
Hear my cries - Hear my calls
Lend me your ears - See my falls
See my error - Know my faults
Time halts - See my loss
Chamelion turns to face us and walks purposely down the ramp as the song continues.
Know I'm lacking - Back tracking
Where I met you - Pistol packing
Itchy finger - Trigger-happy
Try to trap me - Bad rap
He stops at the bottom and looks up into the ring (either just looking or add staring at his opponent[s]) Chamelion turns and walks to the steel steps and climbs them.
Wire tap me - Back stab me
Break the faith - Fall from grace
Tell me lies - Time flies
Close your eyes - Come with me.
He then stands there, outside the ring and raises his fists to the sky. Pyros explode in the rafters as Chamelion walks the apron to the middle and steps through the ropes. He heads straight to the other side and climbs the turnbuckles and again raises his fists and the crowd responds loudly. Jumping down, Chamelion shoots straight kitty corner and repeats his playing to the crowd. Back on the canvas, Chamelion turns, faces (either the entrance or his opponent) and smiles wickedly… his music fading and the roar of the crowd taking over.
Normal/Ring Attire: Backstage and Ring attire are the same, unless RPs say differently. Green mesh shirt, yet solid black from sides of waist then thining out to about three inches across at the neck line. short sleeved. Black elbow pads and knee pads, Black full length trunks. Dark green boots. A dragon adorns the solid part of the shirt, and it's tail swirls down the left leg.. while the right leg says "C". Back of the trunks says "Devious S.O.B."
Fghting Style: Chamelion can execute many fighting styles. Brawling, quick and agile, some high flying and a better then average knowledge of submission style moves. He's a thinking man's wrestler and will adapt to the style of his competitor whenever possible. For really larger opponents, he relies on dehabilitating maneuvers, such as taking out a leg.
Persona: Chamelion is cocky and playful. He can be downright comical one moment and deadly serious the next. His unpredictable style leaves his opponents guessing at what to expect in the ring. Prefers to win clean, but in the end, will do whatever it takes to come out victorious.
- Rolling Thunder Leg Drop
- Tombstone Shoulder Breaker
(Chamelion’s main finisher is the Sweet Sound of Success, it’s quick, no set up and awesome. He’ll use the Mimic many times to insult his opponent and should he get the win that way, all the better. The Rupture is a powerful finisher, but many times will be the set up for the Final Touch)
- Sweet Sound of Success (Superkick)
- The Rupture (Rock Bottom)
- The Final Touch (People’s Elbow set up, into the ropes, then Jericho’s Lion Sault off the ropes!)
- The Mimic (Chamelion executes the exact same finisher used by his opponent. If in a Triple-Threat, Fatal 4-Way or otherwise multiple opponent match, Chamelion uses the finisher of the competitor he is attempting to pin.)

Superstar History: See http://www.geocities.com/w4f_2/Sommers2/sommers.html for complete details: Chamelion is the younger brother of the PWA Legend, Raizzor. When he came to the PWA, he was hired as the Vice President to oversee ADC’s ratings and cash flow. After Raizzor’s disappearance, Chamelion was forced into the ring to accept a challenge from then PWA Champion, Dr. Steven Remo. After that match, Chamelion decided to take on wrestling full time, eventually resigning from his commission as VP. At Dead Man Walking, Chamelion proved his worth as a consummate wrestler by pinning The Great One to become the Intercontinental Champion. However, very soon after, he dropped the strap and was hired as the President of the PWA when Robinson was injured and could not perform his duties. Chamelion returned to his role as Mark Sommers, and works hard to create a wrestling federation that can compete with the big names of wrestling.
Upon returning to the PWA, Chamelion first joined up with his brother Raizzor as part of the Legends of the Ring, but soon turned on Raizzor and did everything in his power to destroy his older brother. Chamelion then dropped the bombshell of a lifetime, when he announced he was the Voice In The Dark, who controlled the monster Nightmare and orchestrated the end of Raizzor's career. Raizzor defeated Chamelion in a loser leaves town match, but a few months later.. Raizzor and Chamelion settled their differences to help create the Dark Forces.
Not long after, Chamelion and his brother were invited to join in the Undisputed Inter-Federation Championship Tournament which was a cross promotion of four seperate federations. As current Television Champion of the PWA, Chamelion was entered into the champions bracket, while his brother entered as a wildcard in the Dark Horse bracket. Chamelion survived to the final four, which was a fatal fourway match against Showtime, Nightstryker and MVP. Not only did Chamelion go on to win the Undisputed Title, but he cleaned house by pinning all three opponents. Chamelion went on to have three successful defenses of the Undisputed Title, including winning an eleven man battle royal as one of his defenses. After dropping the strap to Jay, Chamelion joined Los Amigos along with Pyscho Sandra, Kowareta and Raizzor. He won the 48 man Royal Rumble for a shot at the World Title. Chamelion then challenged then PWA World Champion, The Spider at Christmas at Ground Zero and succeeded in capturing the Title. However, President Robinson went against Chamelion and re-started the match and forced then Special Guest Referee Moke Dosky to hit a fast count on Chamelion, giving the title back to The Spider. Chamelion challenged again for the World Title one week later, but failed in that attempt. Chamelion then joined with his brother, Raizzor to create the Krymson Dragons and in their second match together, captured the PWA Tag-Team Championship.
The two held the titles for some time before losing them at High Stakes. After a short break to recoup, the two returned to retake the titles. They then lost them to the Cereal Killas after Chamelion got injured. Raizzor wanted revenge, and instead of waiting for Chamelion to heal, teamed with Sirus Moran and retook the tag-team titles. Chamelion turned his attention then to something he's desired for almost a year; The PWA World Championship. Showtime was the current champion and Chamelion challenged, but was ignored at every turn. When Showtime defended against Jay, Chamelion cost Showtime the match and championship. Shortly after, Chamelion finally got his shot against a now title-less Showtime and defeated him. However, Showtime soon came to recapture the PWA World Title, but since Chamelion had proven himself, the PWA gave him his shot at Rumble In the Bronx. One year after winning the Rumble to earn his shot at Ground Zero, now Chamelion was fighting FOR the title! Again, Chamelion bested Showtime and captured the World Title for a second time, this time Chamelion went on to defend against Scott Snow, Grifter, Quicksilver and Ashe before going to Ground Zero to defend the championship against Sirus Moran! Chamelion suprised the world by defeating both men and surviving Ground Zero. Chamelion would later drop the title to Kevin Cool. To earn his way to the top, Chamelion decided to start back at the bottom and work his way up.
From January through July, Chamelion went on a tear! Competing in every PPV from November through August, Chamelion defeated opponent after opponent.. his greatest victory coming from the defeat of the SWA owner, Thunderwolf.. allowing him to secure 25% of the PWA's own stock. Becoming a partial owner, Chamelion helped to build the PWA.. but with the animosity between Robinson and Chamelion... tensions continued to grow. After defeating one of the AOWF's best; The Notch... Chamelion turned his back on the PWA for the first time in his life and went on to re-create the W4F! Bringing in scores of wrestlers, fed up with the direction of the PWA.. the W4F caught the attention of Ageian Dreams Corporation, the backbone of the PWA... and ADC summarily dropped the PWA In favor of sponsoring the W4F!
The W4F got the PWA Dome, turning it into the W4F Arena.. Robinson and Mack were relegated to the basement for their now regional promotion, and the W4F flourished! However, Chamelion could not stand to see the PWA falter anymore, and offered a talent exchange, to help the suffering PWA stand again. Now, in an uneasy truce.. Robinson and Chamelion work together to make sure both companies are proud AOWF members.
However, things have not settled well for Chamelion... for The PWA's own Ezekial has targeted Chamelion in an attempt to take him out of the game. The two met at Summer Sizzler, and Chamelion won the match, and secured Ezekial as a W4F talent. But the problems between the two continued and in a re-match at September Slam, just one day after Chamelion battled President Kendall in the BWA's first PPV, Ezekial managed to come out on top over Chamelion, ensuring the feud would carry on in the months to come.
Then, the PWA really began to falter, falling to only four active wrestlers, and Chamelion did two things... he drafted some of the W4F wrestlers over to the PWA.. giving the PWA full control, and he himself returned to the ring, once again a shining star of the PWA community. So, not only did Chamelion own and operate the W4F full time, he also competed full time in the PWA... Not long after his return, Chamelion defeated Morgan Reah to capture the PWA Grizzly Beer title for a third time.. and then, at Final Showdown, the last PWA and W4F PPV.. Chamelion faced and defeated Aura in a title for title match to become the PWA World Champion. This marked the end of both the PWA and W4F, and Chamelion retired the PWA World title, allowing the Kumquat Kid sole run as the World Champion in the new ECWA. Chamelion would then defend the ECWA Grizzly Beer title up until Rumble in the Bronx.. where he retired from active competition to manage the ECWA full time and let the rest of the superstars shine in all their glory.
Chamelion's career has been full of ups and downs, he's seen the best of the best.. and been in some of the most hellacious matches ever devised. For nearly four years, the most Devious SOB in E-fed history... took the ball, and ran with it... and never.. ever.. looked back.
After a few months off after the end of the ECWA, Chamelion and his brother, Raizzor returned to active competition in the HIC. During the first six months, Chamelion would go on to main event 5 out of 6 PPV World title matches... although he only managed one title win, he was always nipping away at the top of the ladder. Capturing the Tempest title in easy fashion, Chamelion had a long run with the title, while still competiting for the World title. Entering a third Rumble in the Bronx, Chamelion would again demonstrate his knowledge of the ring, lasting a long time and eliminating some of the tougher competition, including a personal feel-good moment of superkicking Tommy Riley out of the match. However, the stress of hunting the world title... getting smashed through a glass window and repeated hits to the head, Chamelion was diagnosed with a brain clot... his career cut off in due fashion.
However, another old PWA member, the Corpse had returned to the HiC... and events unfolded, allowing the Corpse to solve the mystery of who he was, and the drugs that were involved in his change and amnesia. Striking a secret deal, Chamelion obtained these experimental drugs, at the extreme discouragement of his brother and wife... and used them. They worked, but the change in Chamelion was evident as he turned and joined the Vulgar Display of Power, lead by Deathsun.... It was during this time, that Chamelion would be truly devious and capture the world title from Deathsun in a triple threat match.
Not long after, the most storied feud in the HiC's brief history began, when Chamelion and Lisa Lorenzo, former VDP members, would fight tooth and nail for the HiC World title. Lorenzo would not only survive Chamelion, but score the victories in their encounters... Chamelion decided then, if he could not best Lorenzo… he would retire.
He remained a shadow in the HiC, as his brother Raizzor.. returned to center stage. It would not be until Raizzor's apparent death at the hands of Eric Draven, that Chamelion returned... with only one purpose.. to destroy Eric Draven.
Assigned to the Who's the Man? Tournament.. Chamelion won the first round match, knowing he could return to glory AND catch up to Draven.. should he win the whole thing.
Then the HiC ... Closed.
On the eve of it's closure, many questions were left unanswered. Was Raizzor alive? Would Chamelion ever catch Erik Draven? And could the Sommers family ever recover?
The last we heard of Chamelion, was his shocking return to the AWE... but what had happened.. in the mean time?
As it turns out, he has embarked into another federation... the Blazenwing Wrestling Federation. In his debut match, he found himself in a gimmicked pay-per-view, Wreckless 2004, where the fans voted for the loser of his match (vs. Wacko Marko) to become the winner's servant for a month. Not surprisingly, Chamelion came out on top and got himself a servant. However, why should Chamelion be content to just boss Marko around? No, Chamelion had other ideas and entered himself and Marko into a #1 contender's match for the BWF Tag Team Titles. They won and, at Gauntlet Run 2004, successfully defeated then-Champions C.D. Punk and Blade to capture the BWF Tag Team Championships, his first BWF title!
Things quickly soured between Chamelion and Marko, however, and Marko soon turned on Chamelion, becoming the evil MJW in the process. Chamelion, unphased, brought in help in the form of his brother Raizzor, who aided in defeating MJW, crowning the reunited Krymson Dragons as the undisputed BWF Tag Team Champions! They would go on to have a lengthy reign before the brothers grew weary of the backstage atmosphere of BWF and dropped their belts and walked out.
It would take several months for the tension between the Brothers and Management to settle, and Chamelion agreed to return for a special match at Beta Test, where he joined Protean and Lisa Seldon against BWF Champion The Executioner, Cody Clark and BWF Owner Kate Gilmore in a six-man barbed wire ropes dream match. Chamelion and Raizzor would spend the rest of the year making sporadic appearances before Chamelion was named as the new BWF commissioner shortly after Gauntlet Run.
Those damn backstage politics reared their ugly head again in short order, however, and Chamelion was relieved of his post shortly before WrestleFest III. Rather than leave again, though, Chamelion decided to return to active competition with one goal in mind... attaining the World Heavyweight Championship. He would have to get past The Legend, who lost the World title at WrestleFest to do so, and the two battled in what is being considered a Match of the Year candidate. Barely making it past Legend, Chamelion’s next major stop was to challenge Toxic for the World Title at Hearts on Fire. Chamelion emerged from that match victorious in front of his hometown crowd in Lansing, Michigan!
