Molly is Stein’s assistant more so than a manager, while Stein toes the villain line, she’s more of a straight shooter and basically serves as his conscience. A beautiful, smart, redheaded woman, Stein met her while she was working at a dry cleaner while studying law at Stanford. She’s timid, very “normal”, and tries to stay as far out of harm’s way as possible.

Debut Event
Entrance Music
Entrance Description

The lights cut quickly, sending the fans into a hushed frenzy. After a few moments of silence, Stan Bush’s voice booms, “YOU’VE GOT THE TOUCH! YOU’VE GOT THE POWAAAAAAAH”. His stage lights up baby blue on the left side of the stage as the opening bridge of “The Touch” picks up, causing the fans in the arena to EXPLODE with a chorus of boos. As the second wave of instruments pick up, the right hand of his stage lights up, and when the beat drops, Dan Stein walks out from the backstage area, shadow boxing with a towel over his head and Molly rubbing his shoulders like a prized fighter. Stein jumps up a few times to limber up his legs, and then starts walking towards his ring. Pausing incessantly, Stein turns to a group of fans, strafing over and shadow boxing near them. As he continues down towards his ring, Molly walks up the stairs to hold the middle rope down for him. Stein prim and properly ducks into his ring, shadow boxing around the perimeter, before acting like he’s going to throw his towel out to the crowd and instead tosses it to Molly on the outside of his ring.

Dan Stein grew up on a farm in the outskirts of Cedar Rapids, IA, where he attended the Linn-Mar school district until high school, when he open enrolled into a better school for his athletics. Stein was an all-state swimmer in the winter for his school, which was the beginning of his lust for attention and stardom. Even while maintaining his school work and swimming, he still trained for professional wrestling in the afternoons.

Dan Stein’s cousin is former SHOOT Project and OPW talent Cyrus O’Haire, which opened many doors for him, including his first gig in the Carolinas. Dave Dymond poached Stein out of high school and brought him to Outlaw Pro-Wrestling just before his graduation, at the tender age of 17 (he had lied and said he was 18 at the time). Debuting as Prototype-X, Stein immediately made an impact whilst feuding with Cade Sydal for the Atlantic Coast Championship, even beating the man in his second match in the company. From there, the world opened up for Dan Stein.

Early in Stein’s SHOOT Project career, and other promotions in the meantime, Stein struggled to toe the tecnicos line which stunted his growth as a wrestler, but as Stein began to embrace his inner rudo, he went on to capture many different championships, including victories over several current EWA stars. Stein was at his peak with the SHOOT Project World Heavyweight Championship win over Donovan King in 2013, but quickly began to see his star fall.

With SHOOT Project “under investigation”, Stein was believed to have been retired, but something has brought him back into the wrestling world. Just what that is remains to be seen.
