Shane William Lawson, is the current owner of the Volatile Wrestling Alliance, though in-character, it's his father Jude that owns the company and he acts as a wrestler in it. He's best known for the monumental success he's achieved as the owner of the Volatile Wrestling Alliance and his near one year undefeated streak in Ultimate Championship Wrestling under the name of Captain Obvious where he held The UCW: Redemption Heavyweight Championship, eventually losing it to Shane Fenix is a Cage Match before the company went under. He's also well known for his finishing move, The Reality Check, which is a leaping cutter that Lawson's revolutionized and made famous the world around. Though plagued with many people who're obsessed with slandering his good name, Lawson never backs down from a challenge and has beaten every obstacle he's had to in order to keep his position as one of the best businessmen and wrestlers, the wrestling business has ever seen, including overcoming all of his inner demons and spending time in an insane asylum to get the help he needed. He is engaged to former in-character girlfriend - and current Chaos General Manager; Rekkah Starr. Currently, he's partaking in a storyline in the Volatile Wrestling Alliance where his father Jude, is putting him through hell in an effort to destroy him.

Background

Childhood

Growing Up

Growing up, Lawson was never the most popular kid on the playground, or anywhere else for that matter. In school, no one ever wanted to hang out with him, so he usually kept to himself, writing it a notebook he carried around, listening to music on his walkman, and generally minding his own business. Whenever anyone would make fun of him for being such an outcast, Lawson would respond with his fists, and it ended up becoming a trademark of his, fighting for his right to be the misfit he wanted to be, and knew he was destined to be. Teachers would constantly blame his lack of a father figure for Shane's behavior, but regardless of if his father was around or not, it never changed the fact that he never truly felt like he belonged anywhere. At school he was an outcast. At home he was an outcast. The only place he ever truly felt like he belonged... was when he was by himself.

Teenage Life

When he got to high school, things started to change for the young misfit. By grade ten he was dabbling in the wrestling business, even forcing kids to pay to see him wrestle others in the school's weight room, to which he earned quite a living from. He went to a Catholic high school, so whenever he was caught doing so, it all came back to his mother and lack of a father figure, much as it did when he was in younger grades. Which of course, never resulted in a positive reaction from Lawson. When he was nearing the end of his high school term, Lawson dropped out of school and fled his home to be a part of the Indy wrestling circuit, never looking back, but keeping in touch with his mother ever so often, given that she was the woman who raised him.

The Indy Life

When Shane first stepped onto the Indy wrestling scene, he was no more than a jobber, who's sole purpose in the companies he wrestled for was to lose, and put over the people he was facing, which was never a problem for him. He always knew he'd have to start somewhere in the sport he was quickly growing to love, so if losing was where he needed to start, then he was fine with that. It was only a few short months into his career that he was noticed by someone who was high up in a company called the Extreme Wrestling Alliance, and that's when his career really began to kick it into high gear. The man who noticed him, had asked for Lawson to be given a roll in the Indy company he worked where he'd be able to win a few matches, and after the scout saw what he could do, Lawson was quickly awarded a place on the EWA roster, and he knew he had finally made it.

Love Life

Lawson's love life has been shaky at best, considering on screen, the relationships have always seemed to be about him. Off camera, he is currently engaged to Rekkah Starr, despite what happened on television with their break up, they've managed to maintain their relationship behind the cameras and away from the crowds, as Rekkah wanted no part of the wrestling world any more.

Marilynn Rogers

The first woman in Lawson's life once he entered the wrestling world was a woman who wasn't afraid to get down and dirty with the men in the ring. That woman, was Marilynn Rogers. She and Lawson met in The Extreme Wrestling Alliance when Lawson wrestled under the name Captain Obvious. At the time, Marilynn was the only one who called him by his first name. Their relationship ended tragically after Marilynn successfully defended her EWA Women's Title against Charitee. After the match, Lawson came to the ring and viciously Reality Checked Marilynn, signifying the end of their relationship, and the beginning of his and Charitee's.

Charitee

Quite possibly one of the longest of Lawson's relationships, was with Charitee. Also one of the most messed up ones. He treated Charitee like a dog their entire relationship, and in turn, she loved it. When Lawson left EWA, Charitee went with him. When he was The UCW: Redemption Heavyweight Champion, Charitee was at his side, until she eventually turned on him when she found out about he and Bliss, and joined the much hated faction, xXx.

Bliss Schild

During his relationship with Charitee, Lawson was seeing Bliss Schild (then going by Jade), behind Charitee's back. After she turned on him, his relationship with Bliss became more public and she took Charitee's place at his side. Being more assertive and aggressive than Charitee, Bliss was never ill treated, she simply stood at Lawson's side, and only dabbled in the ring when need be. Their relationship came to an end, when Bliss had enough of Lawson's egomaniacal tendencies and violent behavior.

Rekkah Starr

Lawson's relationship with Rekkah Starr was born rather controversially, as their first intimate interaction was by force, from Lawson's end, in the hallways of an arena during a VWA show. Like his other relationships, there was someone else involved at the time of their interaction, only this time it was on Rekkah's end, in Atticus Stone. Eventually, Rekkah discarded Atticus, and the two got together, to form one of the most unstoppable duos in wrestling history. With Rekkah as VWA Women's Champion, and Lawson in full control of the company, no one could beat them. That is until Rekkah eventually lost her belt, and Lawson's affection started to fade. He eventually snapped, and destroyed her in the ring after a loss to Brittany Lohan, taking her out of VWA, and his life, for good.

Anna Faith

Lawson's relationship with Anna Faith started quite a while after he and Rekkah broke up, but still took the world by storm because of Anna's sudden change of heart, dabbling in the ego of The Misfit of Society. Their relationship never proved anything to be more than lust, and Anna having a constant need for Lawson's attention. Of course, much like his relationship with Rekkah, when Anna started to fail him, Lawson took matters into his own hands and attacked her much as he did Rekkah, after she lost a match to Tinsley Lewis.

Influences

Nate Static

Nate Static has had arguably the biggest impact on Shane's wrestling career. When he started in the big leagues, then wrestling as Captain Obvious, he aspired to be like Nate, calling himself The Icon in The Making, to Static's moniker The Original Icon, even cutting promos very similar to those of Nate Static's. It wasn't until Static cost Lawson The EWA Heavyweight Championship, that reality finally sunk in for the man formerly known as Captain Obvious. To this day, it's widely believed that had Nate Static not won that match, taking not only Lawson's belt, but his name as well, that Shane Lawson wouldn't be what he is today.

C-Mark

Christopher Shelton aka C-Mark impact on Lawson's life both in and out of the ring since the very day they met up. Plagued with the disease Lupus, C-Mark still wrestled, and he and Lawson met in The Extreme Wrestling Alliance where they quickly became not only a tag team (Obviously Funky), but the best of friends as well. On May 31st, 2006, C-Mark passed away after being in a coma for over a week. Since then, Lawson had struggled with demons and drinking, but has overcome them over time. In memory of Chris, Lawson implemented the very title he won from C-Mark in The Extreme Wrestling Alliance as a belt in The VWA, dubbing it The VWA Supernova Championship.

Mike Omen

Mike Omen has been both Lawson's best friend, and greatest enemy. The two of them met in their tenor in The Extreme Wrestling Alliance, where they instantly became friends. They both left the company not long after, and though remaining friends behind the scenes, were mortal enemies in front of the camera in Ultimate Championship Wrestling. In 2007, Omen helped Lawson open the VWA and since then, they've been friends, enemies and rivals. After Omen faked his death though, Lawson gained full control of The Volatile Wrestling Alliance.
