My first initial thought for Lincoln was to have my newly appointed CHIKARA commissioner Carson P. Century bring in a wrestler by the name of Abe Lincoln to be his right hand man to deal with the rudos of the federation
AWA World Champion: Buddy Rogers AWA World Tag Team Champions: Cowboy Bob Orton & Masked Superstar II AWA US Champion: Playboy Buddy Rose AWA US Tag Team Champions: vacant AWA World Womens Champion: Sherri Martel AWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion: Jushin "Thunder" Liger AWA TV Champion: Ray Stevens
Lincoln Washington Taft (watch out for that BIG SPLASH finisher) Teddy Roosevelt (would definitely be the Monolith of any Legends Presidents set) Andrew Jackson (the first hardcore wrestler?) Grant Coolidge (THE SILENCER as a finisher?)
Lincoln(cause we know he's getting a card) Washington Taft (watch out for that BIG SPLASH finisher) Teddy Roosevelt (would definitely be the Monolith of any Legends Presidents set) Andrew Jackson (the first hardcore wrestler?) Grant Coolidge (THE SILENCER as a finisher?)
I would pay money for a set of these guys...but then again I'm weird.
I would think that Irslinger would fit into people's light-heavyweight division very well. I could see him having good matches with Les Thatcher, Red Berry & Danny Hodge.
