Nickname: The Bodhisattva of Transformative Experience
First Name: Sage
Last Name: Pontiff
Date of Birth: 06/21/1999
Hometown: Joshua Tree, CA
Bio: Sage Pontiff has lived many existences in his young life. The child of committed Joshua Tree desert hippies, he grew up within a culture that essentially turned most mysticism into a mishmash gumbo. He has in his young adulthood discovered that pain is the most common through-line in the expansion of his consciousness, and to that end has found the somewhat tramp-like existence of a professional fighter to be a good fit: he can travel, trip, beat someone up, and impress something pretty along the way.
Gimmick: Megalomaniac with messianic delusions using the aesthetic and language of the modern hippie/boho as a vehicle for his ego inflation and love of violence
Wrestling Style: Sage is a sloppy worker with shades of acrobatic brilliance. He is taken with causing pain and will go to any real length to achieve it, and as a result, he hews closer to something like early Sabu than a technician: he has the acumen, but is excitable to a fault, and will always focus more on violence and looking cool. Sage is a pretty boy unafraid of getting totally messed up, and possibly a clinical sadomasochist--he considers fighting to be a means to achieving enlightenment for both parties, so he relishes in the exchange of moves and strikes.
