Gimmick Overly colorful, friendly and honor-bound sportsman. Quirky in a Rhys Darby-esque way. While he has wrestled in the US for quick one-off shows in the past, this is his first long-term foray to the US wrestling scene to seek out new competition and then grapple-fuck it into submission. (For the record, he really is a good dude, which belies his style...)

He won't cheat, he won't bend rules (won't even take advantage of a ref's five-count in the ropes) and he won't take shortcuts. He prides himself on a "hard work always pays off" mentality, believing hard work and good deeds win out in the end. His skills have made him highly sought after by lots of wrestling organizations and he would never do anything to sully his name/reputation. Despite his ways, some say a vicious streak hides beneath the surface but that remains to be seen.

Strengths 1) Despite wrestling one particular style, many have difficulty preparing for Oscar because of the wide plethora of holds/transitions/counters/pinning combinations he knows.
2) One of the best technicians to not sign to a major company. Nine years in the game under his name and only now turning thirty.
3) Prepares very well for opponents. Never goes into a match half-cocked.

Weaknesses 1) Won't deviate from his primary style no matter the opponent's size, star power or match type. Pick a body part and work it until the opponent can't use it. This tends to make him somewhat predictable. He only has one move where he leaves his feet, otherwise he will stay completely grounded.
2) Too much of a gentleman at times - will lend a hand to others even if it means putting himself in harm's way.
3) Admittedly lousy in non-traditional match types (even to the point of him saying this out loud)
