The Mangler makes his entrance


Not much — an under-educated, impulsive pro wrestler who likes to solve all kinds of problem through brute force.


“That’s my entrance, Cage ! The Mangler always make a spectacular entrance !”

“[I’m the] Mangler ! Whatsa matter, can’t‘cha hear right ? Usually I get a lotta response when I enter a ring. Cheers an’ hisses. The whole works. An’ a big spotlight follas me around.”

“My brother, he don’t know I’m here. He thinks I’m slow or somethin’ and he don’t want me mixed-up in this… but Jack was my brother, too, ya unnerstan’ ?”
