Name: Ace Austin
Aliases: Ryan DePolo
Birthplace: Atlantic City, NJ
Aerial: This is his top skill. Austin moves fluidly through the air and uses a variety of different aerial attacks. His originality is what sets him apart. He’s not just doing the same four aerial moves everyone else is.
Appearance: Ace is on the smaller side. However, he’s quite stocky and has good muscle definition. He’s on the upper end of the junior heavyweight division, which I think is a good spot for him. Additionally, he has just enough unique traits in his look to make him stand out without being over the top.
Charisma: While I’m not crazy about the “magician” gimmick, I think there’s a lot that could be done with it. More importantly, Austin has good control of the crowd and something about him that draws you in.
Power: Ace has good power for his size. Yet, it’s still limited and could be an issue versus larger opponents.
Technical: Austin seems quite comfortable on the mat. He is able to handle himself sufficiently in grappling exchanges. Also, he displays above-average striking and smooth transitions. For someone who is primarily a flyer, he has a well-rounded ground game.
Overview: Ace Austin is a strong prospect with good overall skills. Above all, he has that “it” factor. I’m not even sure what “it” is or how to describe “it”, but Austin has it. His creativity and ingenuity in the ring are intoxicating and your eye is drawn to him. To be this far along at such a young stage in his career speaks volumes. I expect him to skyrocket in popularity very soon.
