|Watch Dalton Castle's entrance here.|
Thursday, April 7, 2016
Up until a few weeks ago, I had never heard of Dalton Castle, Ring of Honor's colourful, flamboyant wrestler. I checked Castle's Wikipedia page (click here) and was surprised to find out he's been with ROH since 2013. Before that, the 5 ft. 11 in., 219 pound native of Albany, New York wrestled for independent company Chikara as wealthy yachtsman Ashley Remington. And Here's what his Wikipedia entry has to say: "Castle's gimmick is that of a flamboyant showman with an androgynous personality, drawing comparisons to Gorgeous George and Adrian Street (I would add Gold Dust to that list. - Bruno) however unlike those predecessors who have tended to portray villains, Castle typically plays a fan favorite. Castle is frequently accompanied to the ring by two shirtless, mask-wearing men referred to as his "boys (independent wrestlers Brandon and Brent Tate)' who act as human furniture and fan Castle during his matches. What do you think of Castle's gimmick? Is it offensive? Is it time to retire such old-fashioned, theatrical, over-the-top characters (interestingly enough, Castle has a college degree in Communications and Theater)? Or is it all in good fun? Let us know what you think in the Comments section below.
