Entrance Description

You hear the voice of Tanya Black break out over the speakers proclaiming “The Fight Begins Now” before we hear the opening of “Lights Go Out” by Fozzy. After a moment out emerges Tanya Black causing a big pop from the audience. Standing at the entrance Tanya bows her head and prays for a moment. Lifting her head Tanya smiles and begins blowing kisses to the fans before she starts to head to the ring.

Nikki Rogers: “Coming to the ring from Albuquerque, New Mexico by way of Boston, Massachusetts! Weighing in at one hundred fifty pounds and standing five feet, six inches tall, she is TANYA BBLLAACCKK!!!”

Waving to the fans and shaking a few hands she takes her time getting to the ring, all smiles and upon entering the ring does a dance for the fans before mounting each turnbuckle in turn and bowing in respect to the audience as the song winds down. Once the song ends Tanya Black waves to the commentary table before she faces the center of the ring and stretches out her neck and shoulders concluding her entrance by letting out a primal scream, her eyes going serious as the time to compete begins.

Profile

Tanya Black has grown up in the wrestling industry. She started training at 16 and had her debut match before graduating high school thanks to lying about her age to that first promoter. A lifelong fan she has forgone things like college despite a high intelligence and analytical nature. Tanya has wrestled around the world and fought in every kind of match that exists against men and women. If anything has defined Tanya’s career it is that she had always had an obsession with proving herself as the best, perhaps spurned by her often chaotic personal life and disdain for being away from the spotlight. This has meant that Tanya has occasionally been unpopular with the fans due to being willing to do anything it takes to win big matches or snap losing streaks. However at her core Tanya Black loves wrestling and has always respected the fans so they are quick to forgive her actions as Tanya will go to the end of her body’s limits to win a match.Recent years have brought serious injuries and the time away from the ring and the close friendship of the wise and caring Kei have brought Tanya back around to loving herself and seeing her place as a veteran and not the young talent who needed title gold at all times. This makes many curious how Tanya will conduct herself as she has been known to condemn “Legends and Icons” for how they compete. After some time in 4CW Tanya Black has decided that her mind games don’t need fancy gimmicks and over-the-top threats: She is a wrestler who has survived every war and has already proven her ability to hang with anyone. She is Competition. Tanya Black has also declared the Echelon Championship she won at Orion Promotion’s last event is her symbolic “Lifetime Achievement Award” and represents every championship she has ever held and thus carries the legacies of all those title divisions and promotions. As such Tanya carries it with her to control her impulse to chase championships by reminding her “I’ve Made My Name” though she won’t refuse opportunities to win new gold and elevate her Echelon Titles value in her mind either.

Perhaps as a result of being a lifelong athlete and having such an outgoing personality, Tanya’s mind games and wrestling style center on sexuality and flirtatious Tanya having admitted she has just enough of a sadomasochistic streak to “really enjoy a proper wrestling match” as well as a very frank nature about her body and that all those bra and panty matches early in her career means there is no point in her being shy about losing her shirt. This mixed with her bisexual orientation has caused many a wrestler to be unable to wrestle Tanya as a simple opponent and her own style unpredictable as she’ll swing from devastating offense to flirty showboating and back again with no warning. On rare occassions though Tanya will abandon that mindset and go pure brutal business, a sign that someone has taken her to a dark place where Tanya Black would be happy to end the career if she can.

After a stormy start and some hurt feelings, Tanya Black has found herself romantically involved with retired wrestler and former SHOOT rival Jaime Alejandro who seems more than willing to deal with the younger woman’s intense emotions for all things as both seeks inner peace. Their recent marriage led to both Jaime and Tanya having found a strong spiritual center as they know both are in for the long haul and won’t betray each other for business. This has resulted in Tanya adding a few moves from Jaime’s arsenal including his favored submission move The Tranquility as her signature submission move.

In the ring Tanya wears a plain red tanktop with black tights that have “Eternal” in white letters down the left leg and “Passion” in white letters down the right leg. Black wrestling boots. On the rare occasions Tanya loses her shirt (or takes it off in a moment of adrenaline rush. Or to choke an opponent in a No DQ setting) Tanya will wear a white or grey sports bra. Out of the ring Tanya dresses in a “nerdy tomboy” style preferring jeans and shorts to dresses and skirts along with t-shirts showcasing either old-school wrestlers, retro video games, or personal favorite anime. Will dress in formal attire when the situation calls for it as she has respect for the corporate world.
