Tetsuo Kanata knew he was different from a very early age. He was twice the size of his 3 brothers growing up, and he got picked on relentlessly in school for being oversized for most Japanese schoolkid activities.
Upon graduating high school, Kanata decided that college was NOT for him, as he couldn't stand to be picked on any longer by people for being such a big man. He trained relentlessly in a gym, lifting weights for hours, until his already impressive physical stature was accentuated by pound after pound of muscle mass.
Tetsuo was approached by the Yakuza at that time, offering him employment as one of their enforcers. Kanata gladly accepted and soon found himself not only respected by his fellow Yakuza, but feared by much of the general populace. He garnered the reputation of beating people almost to death if they didn't pay the Yakuza their revenues...
The Yakuza, in order to increase their already vast holdings in sports and sports entertainment, decided to send Kanata to Shootcamp so he could make money for them and break bones for himself, one of his favorite pastimes...
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE/WRESTLING STYLE Tetsuo Kanata is a brawler, plain and simple. He doesn't use high flying moves, or anything fancy...although sometimes he WILL take to the top rope to deliver a high-risk maneuver with accentuated power. He is mean, quick-tempered, and out to hurt his opponent, no matter the cost.
Kanata is also well-versed in Shotokan karate, and is the holder of a brown belt in that particular style. He uses this karate on lots of occasions to incapacitate his opponent.
Kanata is 6'11 tall, and is somewhere close to 330 pounds. He has close-cut black hair, and wears white SFX contacts. He wears a black silk gi to the ring, and black wrestling pants with red boots...a dragon is emblazoned on one leg of his pants.
Kanata had a manager named Fumiko once, but she proved to be more of a distraction than a help...so Kanata sent her back to Japan...Kanata is learning English, but still has difficulty with the simplest of English words and colloquialisms...He will do interviews on occasion, but it's a rare instance when he does.
Although Kanata is not as hated as he once was, he still doesn't care for cheers OR boos...He is simply out to hurt SOMEONE, irregardless of their fan alignment or what they might have done/not done TO him.
