History

Biography
EARLY LIFE:
Raised as the fourth child of six in a poor working-class South Boston family, Cassidy was known as a kid who BOTH find himself on the wrong end of the law due to his constant fighting and as a kid who usually got away with it thanks to his charm. After a failed run at college, Cassidy worked odd jobs in the Boston area until catching the eye of a wrestling promoter/trainer from the area.

YEAR ONE
Pat Cassidy arrived in DEFIANCE in July of 2020. His first real lesson in the wrestling business came when he attempted to befriend Conor Fuse and paid the price via a brutal beatdown. After that, Cassidy turned his attention to two ventures: opening Ballyhoo Brew and forming a legit tag team with Brock Newbludd. The pair dubbed themselves The Saturday Night Specials and after fending off The Stevens Dynasty and Tom Morrow's Better Future Talent Agency, they set their sights on the big prize: the Unified Tag Titles held by The Comments Section. When Malak Garland attempted to divide the team by revealing that Brock was seeing Pat's younger sister Siobhan, The Keyboard King unintentionally brought the team closer together through a shared hatred. Cassidy closed out his first year in the wrestling business by defeating Garland at MAXDEF '21 and bringing home tag team gold.

Gimmick
“Black Out” Pat Cassidy is a charismatic young wrestler with a love of the drink, a song in his heart, and a constant itch for a good brawl. Guided by a pretty solid moral compass, Cassidy has found his dream job: he gets to fight people for a living and party like a rock star into the night afterwards. He wins over the fans due to a natural charisma in the ring, a sharp and earnest wit on the mic, and an absolutely unashamed willingness to sometimes make a fool of himself in the name of a good time.

While Cassidy is generally an easy guy to get along with, he is not afraid to let his fists do the talking if he feels disrespect. A combination of the legendary Irish temper and a childhood growing up in poverty has left him somewhat sensitive to being talked down to. Still, to Cassidy, what happens in the ring is mostly just business and in the name of sport, and once the grappling is done he's usually happy to head down to the local watering hole and buy you a round (or six). Just be careful if he gets too much in him, because he fancies himself quite the singer.
 
Strengths
1. Cassidy can be one charming MFer. In another life, he might have been a politician.

2. Honesty. Cassidy isn't a great liar and lives his life openly. He is who he is. He's going to shoot straight you with you whether you want to hear it or not, although he's generally not a dick about it.

3. He can take a beating. Cassidy is a scrapper, and he's been in his share of tough spots, so he's very good at taking an ass kicking and coming back for more. 
Weaknesses
1. The temper! Cassidy does have his areas that will set him off, and once he gets fired up, he can make some big mistakes in judgement.

2. The drink. Cassidy loves bars because he loves socialization. That also means he drinks. A lot.

3. Kind heart. Cassidy leads with seeing the good in most people, and that can lead to trouble in a business as cutthroat as wrestling. 

Quotes

  • My demands are simple: give me a good fight. Don’t let me down, boys. Cheers.
  • Cheers, boys!
  • Sing us a song, Mr. Scary Man. Sing us a song... tonight!
  • I should have known that a few nights of fun wasn't enough to beat some sense into that deeply disturbed little man... but now I get to literally beat some sense into that deeply disturbed little man!
  • Hi. Pat Cassidy. Successful businessman.
  • As much as I usually ABHOR violence in a fine drinking establishment, for a jackass as big as you I might make an exception.
  • I now have an asterisk in the record book. I don’t know about you, but I HATE asterisks. I didn’t sign my name on the dotted line here in DEFIANCE to squeak out cheap wins. I sure as hell didn’t come here for Stalker to do my dirty work for me.
  • ...or we go with option number two: you can play your little games where you hide in the shadows instead of facing me like a man, and then I can just come find you. And what that means is Pat Cassidy is going to hit the town as only Pat Cassidy can, and at the end of a festive night of vigorous hydration, I’m calling an Uber to get myself home. And buddy, let me tell you what: in the history of Uber, there ain’t never been a pain-in-the-ass drunken customer quite like THIS guy.
  • Ms. Troy, I fully intend to be unable to form coherent sentences in about… oh say, thirty minutes. I can’t make any promises. Good talk!
  • Right now, in the Shining City on the Hill, the people of Boston are huddled with anticipation around the pub TVs. They’re holding their Guiness high, their green face paint has already begun to smear with anticipation, and their breath is bated… because once again, one of their own has a chance to bring home the gold. Listen, Christie. Can you hear them? Can you hear the cries of my people?
  • Not that respect is going to amount for much in this match, cause it’s St. Patrick’s Day fellas, and YOUR BOY HERE is absolutely… untouchable!
  • Tom Morrow! Listen up. Now, I know you’re a lot of things. You’re a clown. You’re a loser. You’re a weenie. You’re a fool. You’re an idiot. You’re a jackass. You’re a jackoff. You’re a little boy playing a big man’s game. You’re disloyal. You’re a backstabber. You’re… You know, I was going somewhere with this… but I’ve got to be honest… I think I lost the plot here.
  • My name is Black Out… you trashed my bar… prepare to die.
  • It's a street fight, asshole!
  • You’ve cheered me on, you’ve cried for me, you’ve sung along with me and you’ve laughed at my stupid jokes. Nobody had ANY idea who “Black Out” Pat Cassidy was when I walked into this place, and nobody thought I’d make it far enough to be up here accepting this award. In seven months time, YOU ALL have taken me from a nobody to a household name… and together, we’ve taken this whole scene by storm. Stick with me on this ride, my faithful drinking buddies… and just imagine where we’ll be at this time next year.
