A (Brief) History of Violence
Arthur Pleasant spent the majority of his childhood in a small Alaskan town named Utqiaġvik (pronounced Oot-key-ag-vik”!), where the sun does not set for approximately a full month. What growing up in this environment did to Arthur Pleasant’s psyche is evident through his violent, sadistic history in pro-wrestling.
Since the age of sixteen, Arthur has been learning his craft as a professional wrestler (mostly in Japan, where he's something of a 'local hero') and practitioner of Muay-Thai. Despite being excommunicated from the Muay-Thai community for using chokeholds (chokeholds are illegal in Muay-Thai), Arthur eventually achieved the status of a 'highly ranked competitor' (There are no belts or ranks in Muay-Thai). Arthur had begun to look into learning Judo over the last few years. Though it hasn't taken precedence over his Muay-Thai competitions and pro-wrestling contributions, Arthur recently reached the level of 'Sixth Kyū' and obtained his light blue beginner's belt in the sport.
Even though he has competed in highly respected competitions inside the world of martial arts, Arthur Pleasant has made a name for himself as one of the sickest and most sadistic Deathmatch wrestlers in the entire world. On top of this, Arthur has the innate ability to adapt inside a wrestling ring and surprise his critics with technical mat wrestling classics against the likes of Lindsay Troy and Oscar Burns.
