Age/D.O.B: December 16th, 1986

Gimmick: Stone's gimmick is that of his true personality, cranked up to ten. What you see of him as a wrestler is what you get of him as a real person, behind the cameras.
Entrance Music: "Downfall" by Trust Company -
Entrance Description:"Downfall" begins to play and the lighting dims, taking a white and hint of blue effect around the arena. At the point where the lyrics begin, Vincent Stone throws the curtain open and comes walking out onto the stage. At first, he walks to either end of the stage, acknowledging the fans and pointing out ones who are wearing his merchandise or holding a sign for him in appreciation. Finally, he walks to the center of the stage at the head of the ramp and beats on his chest with one fist, throwing his head back with a pumped up yell, timed with the point of the song where the singer screams. Stone then twists around once and throws a punch at the air, causing his pyro to explode on either side of him as he walks towards the ring.
"Making his way to the ring, from Orlando, Florida, weighing in at one hundred and ninety pounds! He is...THE AMERICAN SAMURAI...VINCEEEEEEEENT...STOOOOOOOONE!!!!"
He slaps a few hands on one side of the ramp with one hand, but his main focus is on the opponent in the ring. His face says it all: he's ready for a fight and he doesn't fear them. Stone stops by the steps, usually pausing to let a parent take a selfie with him and their kid. He puts one arm around the kid and raises his fist up under their chin with a playful smirk before turning serious again and ascending the steps, climbing to the top turnbuckle from the outside. Stone pauses to look around at the crowd before extending his arms out to the side, fists clenched, then bringing them in for a Shinto prayer. After this, he hops down from the turnbuckle, landing in a roll inside the ring, popping up onto his feet in the center of the ring and pointing at his opponent. Not as a sign of taunting or disrespect, but as a respectful request: 'Give me your best.' He backs up towards his corner, promptly removing his beanie and shirt, tossing them into the crowd before proceeding to hop on the balls of his feet, rolling his wrists.
Favorite type of match: Stone appreciates a good old fashioned, traditional wrestling match.
Least favorite type of match: Death matches (especially when they devolve into just swinging weapons around and throwing technique out the window)
Favorite Weapon: If he has to use a weapon, he prefers a kendo stick.

In-Ring Strengths: Stone's time in Japan has helped him build a resilience to most aspects of physical pain. He can withstand various submission holds for extended periods and knows how to get out of several with ease, so long as he has the energy left. He can take strikes just as well as he can dish them out. While just over 30, he has over a decade of experience under his belt.
In-Ring Flaws: Stone can become easily distracted by interference from his opponent's valet or second, as such behavior is an easy way to piss him off. He won't hesitate to get in the face of the one interfering and dare them to make a move which usually results in him turning his back on his opponent, leaving him open.
Wrestling Style: Stone has combined his teachings from his two mentors. During his time in Japan, he learned from a man named Kensaku Gannosuke who taught him resilience as well as a mixture of Pancrase and Strong Style. Stone can be a showboat to the crowd, but just enough to get them invested in the match. He does not get cocky enough to be distracted, nor does he tend to waste time showing off before going for a move.
Wrestling Attire: Full length wrestling tights/pants, boots and kick pads, a single elbow pad on his right elbow to protect an indy injury. He keeps his fists wrapped in fighter's tape. His gear usually varies in color but mostly stays black with hints of other colors in it.

Bio: Vincent Thomas Court grew up watching the greats of professional wrestling. Like any good little fan, he aspired to be like his on screen favorites. At the age of eighteen, he graduated high school and began training with his best friend Jaycen Dark. They made their debut as a tag team unit but after a career threatening injury, Dark's career came to a premature end and Stone continued on as a singles competitor. A failed run in Extreme Fantasy Wrestling (XFW) nearly sidelined his career but Stone ultimately strives to persevere and remold himself. At age 31, Stone returned to the big stage in New Frontier Wrestling to make his mark on a grand scale. He also wrestles for NFW's affiliate partner, Extreme Wrestling Corporation (EWC) on the Friday Night Rampage brand.
