The Scorpion is a powerful and skilled masked wrestler whose true identity and personal history are shrouded in darkness. He is the leader of the dark professional wrestling organization known as the BWA, and the main villain of the Slam Masters games.

Trivia Edit

  • The Scorpion's moveset appears to have been based on Japanese wrestler Tiger Mask, although his American name and his mask could be a subtle reference to the infamous "Black Scorpion" gimmick in WCW.
  • The Scorpion's mask and uniform also look very similar to the mask and suit of a legendary Mexican wrestler called Tinieblas (the spanish word for "Darkness") as well as those of his son, Tinieblas Jr. The wrestler Tinieblas was one of the first Mexican fighters to ever tour Japan in 1974.[1][2]
