Name: Davryn Blazenwing
Nickname: The New Hotness
Hometown: Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Weight: 245 Lbs.
Music: "Pain" - Jimmy Eats World
Entrance: The lights in the arena all cut to black and the BlazenTron comes to life, pulsating with a green light as a quiet beat gets louder with every flash. It gets faster and faster, and louder with each pulse, until the pulsating light explodes into the words "Total Nonstop Hotness" and "Pain" by Jimmy Eats World blares across the arena sound system. The stage fills with smoke and the crowd comes to their feet, cheering loudly as they all await the appearance of The New Hotness himself, Davryn Blazenwing. The crowd explodes in a flurry of cheers as the smoke clears on the stage and a man in a dark green trenchcoat stands, head down, facing the BlazenTron. He raises his hands and snaps his fingers, causing four loud bursts of pyro to ignite, two on each side of him, before spinning around Y2J style to reveal himself as the The New Hotness himself, Davryn Blazenwing! His sunglasses shining with the glare from the arena lights, Davryn looks to the left, then to the right, nodding towards the crowd before walking down the ramp. He rolls his shoulders and flips his shoulder length blonde hair back behind his coat, then stops near ringside to slap hands with a few fans. After stopping to slap one last fanís hands, Davryn moves towards the ring steps and hops up and down a few times in front of them before quickly racing up the steps to the apron side facing the stage. He stops and pulls his sunglasses off, then tosses them behind his head into the crowd, then leans down and steps through the middle of the ropes to enter the ring. Davryn walks across the ring and leaps up onto the second rope in the corner nearest the timekeeper, then pulls off his green trenchcoat and tosses it towards the timekeeper. Davryn smirks and points to the fans, then slaps his chest a few times and points up towards the sky, closing his eyes and saying a short prayer. Davryn leaps down from the corner and immediately turns to sit down in the same corner, ala Raven. Davryn then rests his head on the second turnbuckle pad as his theme fades and the crowd continues cheering loudly.

Superstar History: All his life, Davryn Blazenwing had been an outcast. Whether it be in school, work, whatever, David never really found a place he really fit in. His only solace was a bouncer job he had taken at a local Milwaukee nightclub, at even that was just barely making ends meet. It was during this time that he made his only ever friend, a sweet girl by the name of Jen Corlen. Eventually, the two became an intimate couple. Anyhow, Davryn found his solace taking out losers at the local nightclub. An avid wrestling fan, Davryn had always aspired to one day make it into the business, but this too seemed like a dejected pipe dream that would never come to fruition. However, on a cool September night in 2002, Davryn and Jen scored tickets to a SmackDown Wrestling Federation show at the Bradley Center. In the main event, the SWF Champion, Dark Master (a hated heel) successfully defended his title against the company's top face at the time, The Xtreme One, or TxO (who has since wrestled for BWF as Grandtheft and Toxic). Seeing as how TxO was Davryn's favorite wrestler, he and Jen decided that, before the night was over, Davryn would have TxO's autograph. After asking around, Davryn found no trace of TxO, for he had already left the building. Dejected once again, he dropped Jen off at home, and headed to the nightclub to do his nightly job. This was a particularly rowdy night, and after three 19-year-old college students were denied access to the club, they attacked Davryn. However, as this was his job, Davryn easily defeated all three of them and sent them packing. Little did he realize that TxO and Dark Master were standing in line, waiting for access into the club! TxO approached Davryn and told him how impressed he was about how easily he handled the fight. TxO gave David his number and told Davryn he'd put in a recommendation for a job after Davryn mentioned how it had always been his dream to wrestle. A mere two weeks later, David got a call from the one and only Fusion, the Chairman of the SWF!
Fusion had heard only great things from TxO, and was going to fly David in to Miami, Florida to wrestle a dark match so Fusion could see for himself how good David was. David accepted and, in late September, the dark match against Viper took place. David won the match with no problem, and Fusion was so impressed, he offered David a contract on the spot! Finally, by October 2002, David had finally found a place he belonged... Xtreme Wrestling Encounter (originally known as the SmackDown Wrestling Federation). By the beginning of November, David had won the vacant XWE Cruiserweight Championship in a fierce five-man Hellbound match, a horrid combo of Hell in a Cell and a ladder match. Shortly after that, a Pay-Per-View, XWE Retribution, was set to be held but, before it could be, the company went out of business. Again, David was dropped out of the loop and left not knowing what was to come of him.
Enter the SJL. The SmartMarks Junior Leagues. David tried his best to fit in here in this fierce federation, but to no avail, as all the fed's top stars soon trampled over him and, as a result of his greenness in the ring, David was once again left out of the loop. After a few more failed ventures, David made his way to the AJWF.
His first few matches were shaky and, as a result, he lost. But, after his girlfriend Jen snapped him out of his funk, David regained his passion for the business and slowly began winning matches again. He was even inducted into the AJWF super-stable, The Asylum. His most impressive win at this point was against Kilroy Evans in the AJWF Title Tournament. He may have lost to The Huntress in the next round, but so what? Everyone in SJL told him he would never amount to anything in the wrestling business. Now, David had decided to prove them all wrong.
Blazenwing slowly rose up the ladder in the AJWF. He defeated Intercontinental Champion Wild Chylde to capture her title (and DavidÔŅĹs second in his career) only to lose it to Kilroy Evans two weeks later in a screw job perpetrated by the owner, Scott Sable. After this, Blazenwing had had enough and left the AJWF in a cloud of controversy, starting his own federation instead, the Blazenwing Wrestling Federation. Soon, David and Jen became married. All was going well until one day, when Blazenwing received a phone call that Scott Sable had stepped down as AJWF owner! Sensing that his chance at a true World Championship was finally near, Blazenwing was on the next plane to the AJWF Corporate Offices and five hours later, David was once again a part of the AJWF.
After being forced off of several shows due to family issues, Blazenwing finally got his AJWF World Title shot at their November 2003 pay-per-view Genocide. The champion, Darqness, failed to show for the match and Blazenwing was simply handed the belt. Not very prestigious, but a title win nonetheless. Blazenwing soon lost the belt to Randall Moran less than a month later, then the fed transformed into Premiere Championship Wrestling. Blazenwing soon left PCW as a result of backstage politics, but returned a few months later and eventually got a rematch for his title against Randall Moran, the stipulation being that if Blazenwing lost, he would be finished in PCW. Due to outside interference by Warwolf, Moran was able to get the pin and Blazenwing was effectively terminated from PCW.
After another failed venture in the SmartMarks Wrestling Federation (the SJL was no more at this point), David left and returned to the BWF, ending the brand extension and citing it as "a failed experiment". He soon aligned with Bam, however, in one of the most heinous heel turns of all time, when he threw Eliminator off the Hellbound Cell, costing him his World Championship in the process! Blazenwing went on to form a new BWF version of Sex & Violence, centered around himself, X and Bam. This soon went awry, however, when none other than The Executioner made his BWF return at the 2004 Gauntlet Run, eliminating himself and Blazenwing, who had been forced to enter at #1.
This re-opened all the wounds from a year prior, and all hell was about to break loose. After weeks of toying with one another, Blazenwing and Executioner finally locked up one on one at WrestleFest II in David's hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Executioner got the win that night, and it didn't end there, as X turned on S & V to re-create The X-Ecutionists with Executioner, a move the Epitome of Excellence showed more than a little disdain for.
Blazenwing and Bam teamed up to face X and Executioner at January 2005's Survival of the Sickest PPV. The match was a Tornado Tag Steel Cage Match and, by hook or crook, Sex & Violence managed to pick up the win over Executioner & X. On the official rematch later on Havok, Executioner looked to be much in danger, as his partner X never showed up to the arena! Just when things looked bleak, none other than former BWF superstar Timothy "Stench" Murphy, who had issues with both Blazenwing and Executioner, showed up! After rendering Bam unconcsious, Murphy ordered Exie and DB to fight it out once again, which saw Executioner come out on top yet again.
This set in motion a Triple-Threat Match between Blazenwing, Executioner and Murphy for the upcoming Verbal Warfare PPV in early March. Halfway through the match, Blazenwing left the match, leaving Exie and Murphy alone. The ref got knocked out and Ghost made his in-ring return as he attacked Exie and joined Tim. Executioner seemed screwed... until Blazenwing made his return and gave Ghost a taste of The Full Effect! Blazenwing turned fan favorite with one move and aided Executioner in picking up the pinfall victory over Murphy.
David went on to have a short feud with Spade before defeating him in a close Steel Cage Match at Danger Zone in April. International Champion Mark McNasty attacked him after the match, however, which led to Blazenwing returning the favor in McNasty's title match later in the night, allowing Eliminator to defeat him for the belt! This then led to a short feud with McNasty, which saw Blazenwing once again defeat his adversary, this time in a No DQ match, and with aid from Rob Torborg, at Tainted Twilight in May. Later that night, Blazenwing was revealed as Kimek's mystery partner in a match for the Tag Team Titles, and while they eventually lost, the point was clear... the Ass-Kicking Corporation, A.K.C., was here!
In other news during this period, Blazenwing finally ended his year and a half plus Championship drought, but not in BWF as expected. Instead, it was in UWW, as David bested Rabbit and Shadow in a Triple-Threat Last Man Standing Match for the UWW Television Championship! In fact, June 2005 was a really good month for 'ol DB, as he teamed with Rob Torborg at BWF Beta Test to capture the BWF Tag Team Championships from Tim Murphy and Ghost, which saw Ghost turn and join A.K.C. at the same time!
After Blazenwing and Torborg lost the Tag Titles, A.K.C. split and Blazenwing desperately needed to make an impact... and did so by assaulting BWF Champion The Executioner and his fiancee Kitsune at the end of the 2005 Retribution PPV! The two feuded, culminating in a BWF Championship match at Over The Edge on September 25, 2005, where, with the aid of his wife Jen, David defeated The Executioner to claim his second BWF Championship (and fourth overall!)
Blazenwing would go on to lose the title in disappointing fashion at the Gauntlet Run the next month in an incredible 30 minute Ironman Match, where DB would tap with one second on the clock to Executioner's Last Rights to give up the deciding point. After the match, The Executioner brutalized David, turning DB face in the process and shelving him for a long time, or so it was thought...
Unfortunately, the tragic death of WWE's Eddie Guerrero on November 13, 2005 would bring Blazenwing back. He showed up and wrestled on the Eddie Guerrero Tribute Show the next night on Havok, defeating The Legend in the main event. David then laid low for the next few weeks, until an old friend popped up...
Toxic, the former TxO who got David into the business with SWF, had returned to BWF and won the International Championship. David, wanting a match with his former teacher and friend, had Jen sign a title match for WrestleFest III. Toxic was less than pleased, however, taking this as a sign that David was trying to make a name for himself off his old teacher. And thus, the two were off. At WrestleFest III, David returned to his SWF roots, showing up as the superhero, and after a fantastic four star match, would hit a Full Effect to get the three, win his first WrestleFest match, defeat his former teacher AND win his first International Championship all in one fell swoop!
David didn't have the International Championship for long, as he lost it in an impromptu match with Adriana Garcia at an untelevised show days before his PPV title defense against the same woman. David went into Broken Resolutions 2006 the challenger to the title he had held mere days before, but ultimately lost when The Executioner interfered on behalf of Garcia. David was dejected, but quickly bounced back with another title victory, this one over Cody Clark for the Primetime Championship in David's hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin on the 2/13 edition of Havok!
A few weeks later, David would lose the Primetime Championship to Samantha Cade on an edition of Reloaded, and soon after, his wife Jen was kidnapped! All signs pointed to The Legend being the culprit, and Blazenwing battled Legend in a classic Ultimate Submission Match at Happenstance 2006. Legend won 2-1, and after the match ended, Mark McNasty revealed himself as the man who kidnapped Jen! Over the next month, David furiously chased Mark, before finally getting him into the ring at Danger Zone 2006. Mark had an ace card, however, up his sleeve... the fact that Jen was in fact not kidnapped, but aligned with him! She cost David the win, then stated moments after that she wanted a divorce!
David, though hurt deeply by this chain of events, found solace with an old flame who just happened to be working for BWF... the Amazon Princess Kirlia Gardevoir. She helped David get through this rough period in his life, and at Tainted Twilight 2006, David, along with Captain Marticus, gained a measure of revenge on Legend when they upended Legend and Mike Adams for the BWF Tag Team Championships!
They wouldn't have the titles for too long, however... a month later in the team's first title defense at Beta Test, they defended against a solo Toco (his partner, Nya Roux, had refused to wrestle earlier in the night) and when it seemed the two were on their way to a sure victory, The Legend's music hit and the distraction was enough for Toco to roll-up David and get the 3! Moments later, Legend walked out, accompanied by Jen, and made a startling announcement... Jen had just named Legend the new President of BWF, and his first official act... was to fire David Blazenwing!
But everyone should know by now... you can't keep Blazenwing down, and of course, this incident was no different. The following Havok after Beta Test, Legend officially renamed BWF the Legacy Wrestling Alliance, LWA. During the show, David Blazenwing (accompanied by Kid Flash) crashed the proceedings and announced the birth of Revolution X Wrestling, a new federation designed to counter LWA! Whereas the Legacy is about tradition, RXW would be about the extreme no rules atmosphere that made the old ECW famous, and the family that it helped meld the old ECW wrestlers into.
David then quickly worked at signing the LWA's top-tier talent away from them. "Ice" Hensley was the first, after Legend retired Hensley's Primetime Championship. Toco and Mark McNasty, the Tag Team Champions, followed, giving RXW their first title-holders and the lineage of the old BWF Tag Team Championships to boot! Cody Galle, Mad Dogg, Outlaw, Krystal Lyne and Serenity would all jump ship as well, in addition to the signing of many new wrestlers to round out the roster.
David ran RXW successfully for two months, even putting Legend's LWA out of business, but when attempting to buy the LWA rights, everything fell apart. It was widely believed that, following the demise of LWA, Jen Corlen sold all her stock to Legend, who sold all his stock to a private investor. However, it was the other way around, and there WAS no private investor... it was Jen all along! She appeared at Over The Edge 2006 and helped cost David a match against Mad Dogg, then announced that as a result of the purchase, she was 50% owner of RXW, and her first act was to suspend Blazenwing for 90 days and name Mad Dogg acting commissioner! After one show, though, MDogg had had enough and left, leaving RXW all but dead in the wake. Jen then decided to take her earnings and restart BWF, plotting to make her name off the federation that bore her ex-husband's namesake. But we haven't seen the last of Blazenwing... make no mistake, D-Blaze will return, and he will claim what is rightfully his... the Blazenwing Wrestling Federation!
