Setup Move Twelve-to-six elbow series to a kneeling/crouching opponent.
Finishing Move: 1. Chaos Reigns 2. Eldritch Driver 3. R'lyeh Anthem '191. Swinging reverse STO. Familiar as Bray Wyatt’s Sister Abigail, Jay White’s Blade Runner.
2. Small package driver
3. Modified version of his mentor's pet finishing hold. This long-feared move simply involves hoisting his victim into the air in the style of an Angle/Olympic Slam, pivoting, and falling to deposit the poor sap onto their head/neck in a brutal no-frills sheer-drop. Julian adds a wrist-clutch for added control in this, the rendition he debuted in 2019. Reserved for big matches and absolute desperation when all else has failed, and even then, almost always transitioned into directly after Chaos Reigns when he absolutely wants the lights turned out on an exhaustive contest. This move is currently retired and Bathory is rumored to have something new in the pipeline, waiting to unleash it.
Common Moves: Jumping leg lariat, Scoop slam, Brainbuster on knee, Lariat, Vertical suplex, German suplex, Exploder suplex, Snapmare, Sliding dropkick, Powerbomb w/ pinning hold, Stun Gun/ top ring rope clothesline counter to running opponents, Various leg and knee locks, Running neck snap on seated opponents
Bathory is mentored by Bruce ‘Violence Jack’ Shanahan and utilizes several of his maneuvers in-ring as a tribute to his hell-haloed benefactor. These include:
Ode To Azathoth – Fisherman’s snap swinging neckbreaker.
The Last Resort – Named for Shanahan’s once-favorite bar in his Boston hometown and now incorporated into Bathory’s own set of attacks. Simply put, an overhead release cobra clutch suplex.
Shattered Halo – Leg cradle tombstone piledriver w/pivot.
His own originals:
Verzik Angyal – Translated from Hungarian roughly as Bleed Angel. Single-arm lift into a double knee facebuster/chestbuster. (Taiji Ishimori's Bloody Cross)
Carpathian Death Song – Swinging leg hook fireman’s carry slam. (Masato Yoshino’s Lightning Spiral)
Cut-throat Saito suplex
Csillaghullás Bomba - Roughly translated to Starfall Bomb. Cut-throat scoop brainbuster, popularized by Manami Toyota as the Queen Bee Bomb ( https://makeagif.com/gif/manami-toyota-japanese-ocean-queen-bee-bomb-smpu45 )
The Horror Out of Dover - Emerald Flowsion. The former finisher of Horace Tully, Bathory's predecessor that Shanahan was molding before he went rogue and left the Sect of Black Wisdom. Bathory recently cornered and demolished Tully, leaving his current condition unknown, and lifted his pet maneuver as both a trophy and a form of in-ring mockery. Another borderline finisher that can easily end matches.
