Growing up, Gideon Goldmane was but a young man named Gary Reynolds, who loved professional wrestling and playing trading card games. Unlike most of his compatriots at the card tables, though, he was always a strapping young man, broad shouldered and large for his age at practically any age.
He tried football in high school, but found himself truly drawn to amateur wrestling with an eye one day on becoming a pro. He graduated high school as a mediocre amateur, but still had designs on a pro career.
Enter fellow dorkish wrestler Seymour Almasy, and the opening of his training school. Gary won a contest held by Seymour to be one of an initial four trainees to receive training free of charge at the school. Almasy agreed to train Gary so long as he agreed to continue going to school. Reynolds enrolled in a local community college, and Almasy began to train the young man.
After two years of training alongside his school studies, Almasy declared Reynolds ready for a career in the sport. Reynolds requested that he be allowed to find his own way, rather than ride on his trainer’s coattails, a request Almasy accepted.
The persona “Gideon Goldmane” is taken from Magic: the Gathering, the popular trading card game. The name itself combines the first name of the planeswalker Gideon Jura, and the last name of the planeswalker Ajani Goldmane. Order and honor are his guiding principles, without being preachy in doing so. He’s just a good guy who loves his chosen craft, and it shows in the squared circle. He’s also something of a nerd, as you might be able to tell from his chosen persona.
In the year 2011, the Knight Exemplar seeks to bring back honor, pride, and love of the sport to professional wrestling, and has chosen Ring of Revolution as his venue to do so.
None. Ring of Revolution is his first endeavor as a professional.
