Jane the Virgin
Season 1, Episode 20
In this wrestling episode, Jane the Virgin tries to show us a glimpse of what it would have probably been like if Kharma had decided to continue wrestling while being pregnant. Spoiler alert: the baby bump would’ve been used as a foreign object.
“The Electric” Shawn Harley
Bio: Top Notch Wrestling’s brash, young, up and comer. Complains about having to wrestle drunken wrestlers, and apparently is against jobbing to Crazy D. Rumored to have backstage heat with booker, Gunner Lawless.
Signature Move: Refusing to job.
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.
Signature Move: Chokeslam and selling his soul to the devil.
“The Hangman” Larry Lee
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.
