Entrance Description

The intro to the Who classic “Behind Blue Eyes” plays over the PA as the lights black out. A barely visible silhouette stands on the ramp, and a single spotlight hits it on “sad man.” Sean Boden stands, hands together in front of him, looking down. At “behind blue eyes,” a pair of red pyros shoot up next to him, and he raises his head with a smirk. He adjusts his suit jacket, before slowly walking down to the ring, keeping his eyes on the ring at all times, and never losing that damn smirk. He walks up the steps, stopping at the corner to stare down his opponent (or the referee, if he’s first in the ring), before stepping over the middle rope, slowly and methodically, never taking his eyes off the person he’s locked in his gaze… and never losing the smirk. Even as he pulls off his jacket, tie, and shirt, his eyes never leave his prey, and the smirk never leaves his face.

Finishing Moves
  • Entropy [Flatliner]
  • Wrath [katahajime/Tazzmission (preferred, can be done standing, with a leg guillotine, or in a camel clutch position)]
Signature Moves
  • Wrath of the Demon [modified shoulderbreaker, generally aiming more for the neck]
Favorite Moves
Boden's moveset is very eclectic, and adapts to fit his opponent. He is primarily a technical wrestler with a preference toward submissions, but he still has some high-flying in him when the mood strikes. Some favorite moves: 1) Octopus stretch 2) Tarantula 3) Figure-four leglock 4) Kimura lock 5) Fujiwara armbar 6) Short-arm clothesline 7) various cheap shots
Profile

Sean Boden has done a lot in his career. He’s held several belts in his career, but never quite achieved the dramatic success that others had (and most believed he was capable of). He did time in the NYSWF, the EWA, SHOOT Project, OPW, and several other promotions, but save a short NYSWF World Championship reign, was never at the top of any of them. His early career is marred by mental illness; a disassociative identity disorder diagnosis that later was changed to schizophrenia. When he was lucid, he was as good as anyone. When he wasn’t… on July 23, 2000, he killed a man in an NYSWF ring. Ruled accidental, it nevertheless caused a shift in his mental state, and in his reputation. As his career continued, and his mental issues waxed and waned, he gained a reputation as a shrewd businessman and a ruthless opponent. He appeared briefly in the NPWA alongside X-Calibur as a member of Anarchy One, a corporation bent on taking over. When the NPWA closed, he and A-1 turned their attention to SHOOT Project, helping to wrest control of the company from Ed Raymond and Raymond Entertainment, and returning it to the hands of Jason Johnson. For a little while, he was the Comissioner of Oblivion, overseeing the now-legendary Iron Chef match between Rocky Stellar and X-Calibur. Things were looking up; he had seemingly successfully conquered his demons. But his demons didn’t stay down; once more his illness came to the fore. Under the banner of Ascension, he, along with Vincent Mallows, Azraith DeMitri, and Ben Jackman, drove Damien Roy (aka Maverick) from the top of a cage, breaking his neck and killing him. Ascension ran roughshod across the SHOOT Project landscape, their reign of terror coming to an end only after the group dissolved into infighting. Not long after, SHOOT shut its doors. A new beginning was on the horizon, however: Outlaw Pro Wrestling. At the outset, Anarchy One signed a contract with Dave Hawkins, pitting Boden and Hawkins against the team of Law and Order; X-Calibur and OutKast. Their feud would involve the teams fighting not only for the OPW Tag Titles, but also for control of Anarchy One. After losing the company to OutKast (and, unfortunately, Kate Hawkins’ unborn child), Boden would get one last chance to redeem himself, facing X-Calibur in a Human Torch match (a match created by Boden in the NYSWF/EWA, first used by Josh “ICE” Osbourne to defend the NYSWF Hardcore Championship from Jason Phoenix, then used as Boden faced Chris Kage earlier in the night Kage won the EWA World Championship). He failed. And in that loss, tragedy struck. X-Calibur powerbombed Boden onto a support beam on the top of the cage, and, coupled with the ensuing fall into a stack of burning tables, broke his back, paralyzing him at the waist. For years, he sat on the sidelines, watching others succeed at his chosen profession. He watched as his former tag team partner Ryan Cuddihy claim the SHOOT Project Tag Team belts he once held. He watched as his protege, Ainsley Lake, won the Teen Idol Invitational. He started DSI while he was still in a wheelchair. He didn’t want anyone else to have to go through what he did. Dead Soul, Incorporated was a talent agency and a union in one: it bargained collectively with the workers under contract, and had partnerships with OPW and eventually SHOOT Project that allowed their talent to wrestle where they wanted, knowing they had a paycheck and medical insurance no matter where they were. Soon after, he had returned to his feet, and was leading the charge against the excessive violence of OPW; violence he had no small part in creating. Long Island Hardcore and Ainsley Lake, under his DSI banner, took OPW by storm, taking the Tag Team and Southern States Championships, and all but dominating the competition. They argued that there was only two places the violence led: the wheelchair or the casket. It was untenable, they said, and will only lead to the roster dissolving into nothing. Management disagreed, and after a controversial PPV, DSI walked on OPW. Their closure came soon afterward. But SHOOT returned shortly thereafter, and with it came opportunity. Boden returned to the ring a couple more times, eventually wrestling in the Sky High tournament under the Executioner pseudonym and mask. He came in third in the tournament, proving he was still capable of keeping up, but barring a few special events, he never made a real triumphant return to the ring. And in 2011, he disappeared altogether. Nobody is sure where he’s been for the last five years, or what he’s done, but two things are clear: His body is in the best shape of his career. And his mind is not.

Boden is unstable, and is prone to rapid mood swings. He suffers from schizophrenia, which manifests primarily as a visual and auditory hallucination he has named “Milton,” after John Milton, author of Paradise Lost. He is known to have killed or aided in the death of 4 people: John Romeo (aka Mr. E), Ann Dubester, Damien Roy (aka Maverick), and Spike Saunders. All were ruled either accidental or self-defense.
