Gimmick and Background
: Cyrus is a seasoned, battle-hardened veteran of the canvas wars, and a damn good one at that. For many years, he traveled the independent circuit of professional wrestling amassing championship after championship before arriving at the Clique Wrestling Alliance.
Relishing the challenge that a major promotion like CWA offered, Cyrus clawed and scraped against legends, company collapses, and interoffice machinations to rise up and claim the CWA World Heavyweight Championship, rising to the upper echelon of CWA's finest. He has held that championship twice and holds the record for most overall days as CWA World Champion as well as longest individual reign, while putting on classic matches against such talent as Krash, The Ultimate Pain, Chubby Carlos, and Jonathan McGinnis.
However, Cyrus's passion and fire began to wear thin. This, in combination with injuries sustained, forced him to take time away from the ring to recuperate and re-evaluate. Now, with a revamped style, a recovered body, and a thirst for new challenges, Cyrus has returned to wrestling seeking new horizons.
Cyrus's outlook in wrestling and in life in general stems from a paradigm Cyrus calls "The Long and Winding Road," a mindset that sees life as a never-ending series of twists and turns, and its "travelers" should seek to overcome challenges head-on and acquire glory and greatness through sacrifice. Cyrus is a deeply philosophical wrestler, always seeking to root out truth from beyond the veil of deceit and what he sees as the delusions of many of his peers in professional wrestling.
Inside the ring, Cyrus is a blood knight through and through. He relishes combat and sees it as the only means to truly prove one's greatness and earn glory. Cyrus fights like a demon and refuses to hold back and insists that he be extended the same courtesy, as he feels a fight easily won proves nothing. He is an honorable man, however. While he feels no remorse and shows no hesitation when it comes to being both cruel and brutal in the ring, he will not stoop to outright cheating. As a wrestler, Cyrus's goal is to build a legacy so vast and so great that the world will never forget his name, and he will stand up and fight to protect that legacy regardless of the cost.
