The definition of a narcissistic heel seeking controversy and reaction. Van Slade's personality is littered with a variety of humor, dysfunction and personality issues; he's an advocate for mocking. He's fond of his own perceptions, and never backs down. The most intriguing aspect of the D.V.S. gimmick - he is in absolute denial and believes he's a super hero; or a Luchador channeling his inner-Lucha spirit. It really depends on the situation and what language he'd like to say the word "devious." He's not right.
Dan Van Slade (Daniel Slader; Van Slade is the ancestral European surname) was born August 8, 1990 (24 years old), in Missoula, Montana. He is a 2008 Big Sky High School graduate and 2012 graduate of the University of Minnesota. He was a notable four year starting defensive end for the Big Sky High School Eagles football team winning three city championships during his tenure (2005, 2007, and 2008). He started on the same defense as linebacker Jordan Tripp - the fifth round draft pick for the Miami Dolphins in the 2014 NFL Draft. He won a scholarship in 2008 to the University of Minnesota and graduated in 2012 with a degree in Business Management; he also minored in Accounting while obtaining a consistent 3.3 GPA and wrestling nationwide for a well-rounded Minnesota Golden Gophers wrestling squad. Professional wrestling has been a passion of Van Slade's since he was six years old.
SCOUTING REPORT: Van Slade loves to reverse moves, and does so with grace. He's a magician in the ring, but this is countered by time and opponent. He's human and will grow tired further into a match. The opposition is the ultimate factor. Everything will depend on the challenge. Van Slade also modifies many moves in the ring and creates a variety of move combinations in an attempt to slow down the opponent. He's fast, brute, and a pain-in-the-ass. Don't expect Van Slade to stay down, lay down, or bow out. His longevity and charisma will make up for any time spikes, or ass beatings.

RZA hits the poetry to a dubstep remix of 'Biochemical Equation', a collaboration with MF Doom. The fans' heads drift toward the stage where they see the image of Dan Van Slade deviously grinning on the screen. The screen flickers as a mask fades on-and-off Dan's face. Suddenly, his voice blasts through the speakers - 'DEVIOUS!' Dan shouts as the thirteen second mark hits and RZA begins the epic clash between Dub trance and street slingin' Suddenly - Dan Van Slade - dressed in his best threads - walks intensely slow from behind the curtain.
There is no love for this man. Fans boo, and react appropriately. A mass eruption of hate. He walks methodically slow to the ring, and pauses at the apron while 'Biochemical Equation' continues to spit raw lyrics. Dan then leaps and lands feet first onto the ring apron with ease. He grabs the top rope and slingshots himself into the ring. Van Slade dives, tucks, and rolls onto his feet as he stands in the center of the ring. He then rips off his thick gold brass knuckle necklace and whips it into the air.
