Also Known As: The Classic City Saint,The Royal Rockstar, The Little Big Problem
Stands: five foot eight

Fighting/Wrestling Style: Quick and agile, catch-as-catch can. Very versatile. Novice wrestler – botches moves occasionally, but supplements with lots of MMA-type moves such as strikes, clinching, takedowns and submissions. Excellent at reversals and counters.

Mannerism(s): When hitting the ramp, usually comes out with a custom jacket on with the hood up, and stands still, looking around with his face slightly hidden by the hood. He then drops the hood down and yells “NOW OR NEVER” while raising the rockstar hand sign (just like Edge) before rushing the ring. When playing to the crowd, he uses the hand sign and may yell N. O. N.
Bio: Sagittarius Blue is a young renaissance man. Born in Athens, GA and raised in the boondocks of the countryside, Sagittarius had a very humble beginning. But one thing always stuck with him: he wanted to be different. He never fit in as a child – he always spoke differently and followed the beat of his own drum. He learned that, for better or worse, he was who he was – and unlike so many people, he embraced it. He studied hard in school and found he had a fierce desire to learn and excel. He alsod iscovered the things in life he had a passion for, such as music: he eventually became a popular underground music artist with his hybrid style of hip-hop/R&B/rock/soul fusion. Sagittarius also discovered that he had a fighting spirit burning inside –literally. He took up the martial arts – kickboxing, muay thai,jiu-jitsu and some sambo – and traveled the world competing, being successful in several organizations and capturing titles as he went.
Now Sagittarius Blue wants to enter a new realm: professional wrestling.
Sagittarius Blue is green in his pro-wrestling career, but brings a strong MMA foundation to the ring. For a man his size, he strikes very hard – with a fondness with kicks, elbows and submissions. Sagittarius understands that he is physically a dwarf among giants, and embraces agility, counter-fighting and unconventional tactics to one-up the opposition.He is incredibly intelligent and clever – masking it under a rockstar, devil-may-care attitude, but letting it out when he needs it. While Sagittarius is usually very chill, amiable and even soft-spoken – but is also a verbal firebrand, who will speak his mind to anyone – consequences be damned. Sagittarius is a man of action – hence his favorite phrase: NOW OR NEVER. Sag is a die-hard friend to those who will let him, but a dangerous and dogged enemy to those who are on his bad side.
The Sign of the Archer: if you've seen Mark Haskins (formerly of IMPACT Wrestling) use the Painkiller, then you know what this move is all about. If not, here's how it goes:Sagittarius locks his victim in an inverted half-nelson hold or a suplex facelock hold (may grab their belt or tights for additional grip and lifting power – imagine how Edge got opponents in position for the Edgecution DDT) then lifts them and tosses them forward... as they come down, Sag delivers a savage knee to the victim's face or temple for a knockout blow.
The Bow of Sagittarius: Sagittarius' favorite submission hold –a version of the AT arm submission hold. Sagittarius attacks his victim when they are lying facedown, grabs their arm, and contorts it in ways that nature did not design it for. Indescribably painful. Even more unfortunate for the victim: Sag has a love affair with wanting to remove people's arms when angered.
Shining Wizard: This move is usually pulled out for a fast finish, and is not always used as much as the others. Sag's version is quite vicious – he often uses the knee instead of an actual kick. Likes to use it on kneeling opponents, but will use a step-up/jumping variation for standing opponents.
Sagittarius Slam: A souped-up uranage. Proves that the little man is stronger than he looks.
Kenta-style strike rush (not the official name, maybe can come up with a name for it if desired...): A flurry of punches and kicks. Mainly designed to stun an opponent and open them up for a follow up move.
High-angle dropkick (Sagittarius Shot): A stiff apron-to-ring dropkick. The execution is something like Daniel Bryan's dropkick from his NXT titantron – Sag coils up in midair, making the impact more powerful. Kip-up optional.
Stardom: A springboard roundhouse kick, inspired by John Morrison's Flying Chuck and Cody Rhodes' Beautiful Disaster.
Sagittarius Special: A combination move. Starts with a muay thai/dirty boxing clinch (perhaps one or two punches/elbows to start) into a knee to the head, followed by a single/double leg takedown, and finished with a fist drop to the face.
Other moves (may be used often, but not signatures or finishers in their own right): belly-to-belly slam, shotgun dropkick (a coiled-up, close-range dropkick delivered to running opponents in the torso), high roundhouse kick, cutthroat hold knee neckbreaker (a la JTG), enziguri, baseball slide under standing opponent, flying forearm, various MMA strikes, grapples and submissions
NOTE: Sagittarius may be new to wrestling, but he learns quick and is always improving. BEWARE.
“Gimmick”: Wants to spread musicand the power of the small man. Doesn't color in between the lines. Loves astrology (of course.) Sense of humor, bit of a talker. Under extreme pain or stress, enters a berserk mode and becomes bloodthirsty and mentally unhinged. Little guy with the heart of a giant and the soul of a warrior. For comparison, imagine a combination of Spider-Man, Sam Shaw, CM Punk, The Human Tornado, John Morrison, Urijah Faber, Xavier Woods, Jay Lethal, KENTA and P. O. S. (he's a hip-hop artist.) Yes, it's a lot to take in.
