Jennifer was a vagrant from a broken home until the day Johan Dietrich took her in. After learning of Dietrich’s profession and spending more time with he and KC, she began to open up more and show an interest in the business. Soon, she requested accompanying both men on the road and to their matches, quickly settling into a managerial role after witnessing the short-sighted decisions of her friends.
A lone guitar revs over the PA, turning into the steady, droning riff that begins Sepultura’s cover of “Orgasmatron.” A primal roar brings forth Johan Dietrich and Jennifer Dowling, the Hired Gun storming through the entrance curtain with his stride matching the pounding drums as Jennifer keeps pace.
Nikki Rogers: Introducing at this time…
Dietrich stops halfway down the ramp and surveys the arena, turning to Jennifer. She gives him a peck on the cheek and he smiles, returning to his death march as she saunters to the bottom of the ramp with a touch of hesitation.
Nikki Rogers: He weighs in at 285 pounds and stands at 6 feet, 6 inches tall, hailing from Worcester, Massachusetts…
Dietrich storms around the ring, hurling anybody and anything in his path to the side before sliding under the bottom rope. He rushes to his feet and meets the referee face-to-face, offering him reprieve in the form of a smirk as Jennifer joins his side.
Nikki Rogers: DIIIEEEEETRIIIIIICCHHHHHH!!!!
Dietrich shoves his fists in the air and turns to face the crowd, daring any and all to challenge him. As “Orgasmatron” dies down, he slides off his kutte and hands it to Jennifer, stretching out over the ropes as she exits the ring.

Johan Dietrich was born to fight. He was never the smartest man in the room, but he accepted that at an early age. During his youth, he and his brother Piotr would stay up late to catch Johnny Napalm matches on a local TV station (airing NYSWF programming two weeks late), dreaming of following in their hero’s footsteps. After a drunk driver took Piotr’s life, Johan fell in with the proverbial “bad crowd.” Early on, Dietrich worked through the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States as the masked Kvlt Drachen, relying on his size and brutality to make a small name for himself in North Carolina’s Rebel Pro Wrestling. Eventually, though, he found himself working as a low-level enforcer for a Boston-based crime organization, finding solace and success in the underground fight clubs that his boss would put on. Using this experience as a springboard, Dietrich joined the New Mexico-based Orion Promotions, solidifying himself as an uncompromising force to be reckoned with…until his path finally crossed Napalm’s. Taking pity on Napalm, Dietrich allowed himself to lose, returning to his former “off the books” occupation.
A little over a year later, an EWA scout happened to find clips online of Dietrich’s work in Orion and notified the right people, allowing Johan to be signed on by Duane Gates personally as a means of combating Johnny Napalm for a collection of disparaging remarks and overall insubordination. Seeing this as the spark that lit the powder keg’s fuse, Dietrich has since made the EWA his home, carving out a niche for himself with his own brand of violence and cheap beer-fueled mayhem, bringing his close friend KC Rockefeller into the company to team as Kharrion.
APPEARANCE: Johan has a thick build that masks his decent level of speed, but is not particularly well-defined. He is heavily tattooed, having both arms covered from shoulder to knuckle, with the most notable pieces being a centaur on his left pectoral muscle, a battle axe on his right, a bullet belt around his right bicep, and the word “KVLT” written across his stomach in Olde English font. He keeps his head shaved bald and his beard wild and unkempt.
Attire-wise, Dietrich makes it clear that he’s less about showmanship and more about getting the job done. Plain black trunks, knee pads, boots, a single black elbow pad on his right arm (in tribute to the other Front Line Academy alumni), and both hands/wrists heavily taped are what he normally competes in, but he finds the most joy in wearing whatever clothes he has on at the moment for when the rules are thrown out.
