it was announced some time ago that he was going to try pro wrestling. he seems like a natural fit given that he is a mediocre fighter who's getting a little long in the tooth to be picking up new skills and round out his game, so worked matches make sense. and he is very much a "character" which is important for pro wrestling.
and what else would he do now? go back to backyard brawling?
His helmet was stifling, it narrowed his vision. And he must see far. His shield was heavy. It threw him off balance. And his target is far away.
