Added DiffLines:

* BadassBeard[=/=]BeardOfEvil: Depending on his face/heel alignment at the time.

Added DiffLines:

* TheBrute: Like most gaijin heels, ended up as this in the heel stable - at the time Cannon was in Dragon Gate, that was the Muscle Outlawz.


Added DiffLines:

* DelinquentHair: A mohawk to rival Yasushi Kanda's classic one from his [=M2K=] days.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Jobber}}: In a funny way. Cannon had gone to Japan to work for a different promotion, and that fell through. He went to Dragon Gate, who said they could use him, but because the writing for the shows was finished, they couldn't let him win any matches. Cannon said that was fine. As such, he was presented as a beast and mauled the faces before getting pinned in almost every match he participated in. They gave him a couple wins at the very end of his run.


Added DiffLines:

* StoutStrength: Pudgy and soft around the edges, but able to execute power moves on pretty much any face on the roster.

Added DiffLines:

* HillbillyMoonshiner: As a member of The Moonshinin' Men Of UsefulNotes/{{Appalachia}} in Wrestling/OldeWrestling.


* BombThrowingAnarchist: This was his gimmick, although he didn't actually throw bombs.

to:

* BombThrowingAnarchist: AbhorrentAdmirer: For [[Wrestling/RubyRiott Heidi Lovelace]], since he gave her [[KissOfDistraction Kisses Of Distraction]] in a variety of promotions. In Heidi's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0ZUKU1lgSw final]] CHIKARA promo, before her match with Cannon at ''CHIKARA White Rabbit'', she even speculates that Cannon might have a "secret crush" and that it might have been the reason why he held back during their matches.
* {{Bomb Throwing Anarchist|s}}:
This was his gimmick, although he didn't actually throw bombs.

Added DiffLines:

* OneSteveLimit: He and Arik Royal were in Wrestling/ProWrestlingGuerilla at the same time.
