Nickname: Tempest, Smooth Joe Cool (self-proclaimed)
First Name: Joseph
Last Name: Malone Jr.
Date of Birth: 01/20/2002
Hometown: Phoenix, Arizona
Weight: 179 lbs.
The son and oldest child of two-time world champion, Joey Malone, here to carry on his father’s legacy in his own way.
Imagine a ridiculous, foppish peacock of a man. Imagine that this man is in the middle of a lifelong blood feud with an inanimate object. Imagine that this man looked at what reality is supposed to be like, and decided "no thanks".
That is "Tempest" Joe Fontaine.
You probably think he's an idiot. God knows, most people do. But think about it in this way: Joe exists on a wavelength beyond normal human beings. He vibes to a beat of a different drummer. He *probably* plays Fortnite. And while he might not be experienced in pro wrestling quite yet, his potential is there. All he has to do is stop thinking that he's bigger than he is.
And, you know, stop getting near El Hijo del Super Cool Guy. For his own health.

- Standing double stomp.
- Sliding D-style lariat.

- Has become PRIME’s premiere high flyer as a result of additional training from Coral Avalon, taken in part from adopting moves from Seymour Almasy’s career.
- Dangerously unpredictable due to adopting moves and tactics from two wildly different wrestlers – Joey Malone and Seymour Almasy.
- Surprisingly durable and can take a hell of a beating before he either turns things around or tags someone else in.
- Inexperience. Joe is still in his second year professionally.
- The adoption of Almasy and his wrestling style (specifically, Almasy’s more reckless early years) is still new to him, and he has trouble mitigating the risky nature of some of Almasy’s maneuvers and tactics.
- He has yet to reconcile a balance between risk-taking and more grounded options, meaning that most of what he does is risky and he runs as much risk of hurting himself as he does his opponent.
- Has little-to-no defense against submissions, and he has little advantage in a striking contest.
- Please keep a safe twenty foot distance between Joe and your mannequin.
"I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go..."
The beginning of Oingo Boingo's classic "Dead Man's Party" hits the PA system, and out from the back runs Baron von Blackberry. He stands at the middle of the entryway with his arms outstretched. Behind him, Joe Fontaine runs out in his bedazzled poncho while Sid Phillips simply marches out in his plain brown poncho with the calm of a man who only has one thing on his mind, and that is powerbombs. Joe raises his arms several times into the air to hype up the crowd, while Blackberry begins the walk to the ring.
Joe and Sid slide into the ring together, while Blackberry walks around and hops up on the apron. He spins to place his back to the ropes, and holds his arms out with his palms out to pose. To his left and right, Joe and Sid climb up the turnbuckles to raise their arms for the crowd.
