Nathan (Nate to his friends) is a hardworking 28 year old man that helps run his family’s bakery in downtown Monument. Opened in 1950 by his late great-grandfather, he works alongside his father and grandfather. His family is very tight-knit, and he currently lives with his parents.
A prototypical boy-next-door, he has an equal love of sports (especially the Red Sox and Bruins) and nerdy stuff like video games and Dungeons & Dragons (he plays in a campaign with a few other wrestlers from the academy). Having gone to a vocational high school for automotive technology and repair, he’s fond of restoring old cars and always has some project in the garage.
He’s personable and outgoing, but also insecure; were it not for his height, he’d be pushed around much more.
Nate is one of Victor’s first students, before Monument Wrestling Academy even existed. They met because Victor’s mother was a frequent customer of the bakeshop, and she sung praises of how well Nate treated her. When she broke her hip and could no longer drive, Victor stopped by the bakery for her, and was delighted to meet the young man that his mother had “fallen for”. Nate, an avid wrestling fan since his childhood, recognized Victor from his television days, and failed to keep himself from fanboying. They talked for a long while, and Nate lamented that he always wanted to be a wrestler, but could not pursue it due to the lack of schools in the area and needing to remain close to the shop. Victor decided to take him under his wing, and promised that he’d sort out a way to make his dream a reality. A week later, Victor converted his unused shed into a makeshift gym, and Nate started his training.
-Adopted a three-legged pitbull mix named Moxie
-Has another wrestling persona named Rocco Stone, which he takes bookings for outside of Monster Mash Wrestling. Much like Yours Truly, Rocco is also a motorcycle gang/greaser/bad boy type, and an option for any booker that isn’t necessarily interested in a vampire.
-Had a huge crush on Jodie when he met her. She rejected him swiftly and without mercy.
-Realized that he had a crush on Mitch when the roster went out for karaoke night. He wasn’t going to participate, but Mitch coaxed him into doing (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life, saying with his entire chest “c’mon man, I’ll even do the girl part!”. A little under five minutes of the most flirtation that he’s ever endured in his entire life from a slutty twink, Nate was emotionally fucked in biblical proportions.
