Shockwave The Robot™, "The World's Only Breakdancing Wrestling Robot", is quickly becoming one of the most popular and recognizable pro wrestler/entertainers in the world today. Shockwave The Robot™ sets himself beyond anything that you have seen inside the squared circle.
Complete with his spectacular ring entrance, lazer lights and Co2 Confetti blaster, his original wrestling style/persona includes a stupid fresh flyboy breakdancing exit complete with audience participation. "Can you break it down?"
Shockwave The Robot™ captivates audience members from every demographic and has become so popular that he continues to out-sell former WWE superstars in the ring for in ring photo opportunities. The Honkytonk Man & Greg The Hammer Valentine, Tito Santana, Bushwhacker Luke Williams, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Doink The Clown, Spike Dudley, Joey Mercury, and even The Legacy's Manu have all gone home with less merchandise sales because of the wrestling robot.
Journey of Shockwave to The Center of The Ring....

The next day, Shock was teamed up with a talented wrestler from the mid west named Sigmon.
Their opponents were none other than the always disgruntled and angry Josh Daniels from NJ and Masato Tanaka. The match was a memorable one to say the least. Towards the end of the battle, Shock and Tanaka battled on the outside and Josh Daniels ended up pinning Sigmon with a full-neslon suplex.
