“Big” Ed Johnson

“Big” Ed Johnson is clearly less to look at, if that’s possible… At 5’11”, 231 lbs, balding, with puffed jowels, a pouty lower lip, and eyes that let you know hes been through more than most…. Usually seen in a cheap three piece, its very rare on fight nights to see him far from his clients side… While GRIMM is more the silent, introspective type, Ed Johnson is the brains behind the operation, and even moreso, the mouth… On Camera, in Promos, it’ll be Ed that should be paid attention to, for even when he’s being an ass, the subtext behind it is usually pretty solid…

Finishing Moves
Favorite Moves
  • Ground-N-Pound: (Straddling a downed opponent, and repeated closed fists)
  • Low-Blow: (Out of desperation, or just for fun)

  • Headbutt: (Hardest head in the business)
  • Clothesline: (Simple, Powerful, Effective)
  • Legal or Illegal Foreign Object: (GRIMM is from a time when eXtreme was the norm, and he has no problems with any weapon, or gimmick added to matches.)
  • Powerbomb into the Turnbuckles: (Something for the 'littler' guys, we don't discriminate)
  • Sucker Punch: (Anything to turn the tide)

  • Strikes and kicks befitting a brawler

GRIMM is (or should be) the dirtiest fighter, in EWA… Depicted as an extremely imposing, 7-foot-tall (2.1 m) man with a flattop buzzcut, a falcon-like nose, and a heavily scarred face, making him unappealing to the opposite sex. He has a massive frame and is distinctly broad-shouldered, generally towering over his fellow characters. He is usually seen dressed in a black leather overcoat, white undershirt, leather pants and combat boots. His wrestling style (even for someone his size.) has an unusual level of speed which, coupled with his well-developed fighting skills, incredible strength and pain tolerance is something between a barroom brawler, and an mma fighter…
