"The Flying Scotsman" Angus McDonald

The Flying Scotsman - in 1928 it became the first ever train to make a successful journey from the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh, to the capital of England, London. With this incredible trip, it left a huge mark on history, immortalising itself in to fame spreading much further than it's homeland of Scotland.

Now, in 2008, hoping to follow the same train tracks to fame is Angus McDonald, wrestling's very own "Flying Scotsman".



Background

Wrestling briefly around the UK, he quickly moved over to America but was still restricted to indie fame there. Always hoping to make it big, he jumped at the opportunity when finding out TWOSTARS were scouting for fresh new faces. In the ring he doesn't take an entirely serious attitude and is known for in match shenenanigans. Despite his small size he lets it known in his actions and the way he talks that he considers himself an unstoppable force; on the brink of complete and utter delusion. He is usually full of energy but can often end up making very little sense when excited.

Since joining TWOstars Angus has definently done one thing. Although he doesn't hold the most impressive win/lose record he's always tried his best to entertain the fans and have fun himself. Not having the best of luck when it comes to single matches, Angus seems to have found his niche with tag team matches. In his early days of TWOstardom he found a partner in Randy Roko, another newbie who hailed from Scotland and later a third team mate, the giant known as Willard. The three have proven themselves to be a more than formidable team even if half the time Willard is the only one who actually knows what he's doing. Backstage Angus has been known to be even more nonsensical backstage, speaking gibberish and performing random acts of madness at other superstars expense.

Appearance

For a general but brief description on his physical appearance just imagine Paul London but slightly more pale
Angus1
and with ginger hair that hangs just above his shoulder. For his attire he wears a red and brown tartan kilt, black boots and white wristbands. On his face he has a mask that shares the same tartan as his kilt. His mask has a hole on top so his hair can come out (ala Psychosis) and a top his head he wears a brown bonnet.

Career

Entrance Music

"Sahti Waari" - Turisas

Entrance Style

When Angus' music starts up, he waits a brief moment before coming out onto the stage and stopping. He observes the crowd, moving his head both left and right, before suddenly shooting his arm upwards. Pulling it down twice pyro is shot out a fair distance from either side of him and the sound of a train's whistle blasts out from the titantron, sounding over his music.

Once the pyro has settled down Angus hops up and down excitedly and then runs on the spot, doing train movements with his arms. Bursting into a sprint, he dashes down to the ring and rushes round it once and goes on to run up the ringside steps and jump atop the turnbuckle. Once again while perched upon the turnbuckle he performs his 'Blow the Whistle' taunt which is, again, accompanied by the sound of a trains whistle being blown. Finally enterring the ring Angus performs a few brief stretches before either laying down his bonnet in the corner or throwing it out to the audience.
