Bio: Gunner Lawless once sold his soul for a world title shot and a lifetime supply of wrestling gear decorated with tassels. Now, he’s the main booker of Top Notch Wrestling, which means he’ll occasionally put himself over the younger talent.

Bio: When not endangering the safety of his opponents by wrestling drunk, The Hangman likes to live up to his moniker by choking out his opponents with a magical noose that drops from the ceiling.
Signature Move: Hanging wrestlers.
