Hometown: San Francisco, CA
Weight: 218 lbs.

Finishing Move Description:
The Gaybasher: Essentially, it's a spinning Diamond Cutter, but it is performed while running at the opponent.
The Salad Toss: A secondary finisher, this is High-Angle Texas Cloverleaf. Used intermittently.
Shooting Star Elbow Drop: While not a high flyer per se, SFT does not mind jumping off the rope or to th outside on occasion. The name of this move says it all and is usually a set-up for the Gaybasher.
Ringwear: Full tights with color that varies. "SFT" is always printed on the back and groin of the tights, with images of sparklers placed ever so methodically down the legs. Can you say F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S? He wears tights-matching wristbands on both hands that extend midway up the forearm with a strap that wraps around the area between his thumb and index finger.
A sequined vest matching the rest of his outfit. It really depends on the event and outfit.
Tight-fitting t-shirts with jeans . . . or leather pants.
His entrance video starts along with "Macho Man" by the Village People. He takes his time getting to the ring, giving the SFT signal (Using the thumb and index finger of both hands to make a triangle) frequently on the way to the ring. He'll even banter with the jeers of the fans. He does not use the ring steps, instead preferring to lift himself onto the apron, stepping through the middle rope. He'll pause a little bit here and wiggle his hips, then enter the ring.

Michael Platt was always a very impressionable youth. He was born to a very sane and loving family, yet his eccentricities and social awkwardness proved to be problematic later in life. At age 7 he joined a youth rugby team and began babbling in a faux British accent. As a result, he got his ass kicked. Then at age 13, he joined a street gang and began calling himself a "gangsta". Again, he got his ass kicked. Upon graduating high school, he promptly moved out on his own and disappeared for a number of years. Then, in 2005, he was spotted by a high school friend at Burning Man wearing yellow spandex and body paint. He had no recollection of the last five years of his life, but now resided in San Francisco, CA.
His wrestling career began upon seeing all of the colorful outfit choices he could have. However, for once in his life he was determined not to get his ass kicked. His training began soon after the beginning of 2006 and he has wrestled many Indy shows while proving quite a name for himself. Now, after the long journey that has brought him where he wanted to be, he finds himself at the steps of the IWL . . .
