1[[quoteright:300:]] ˛˛Born Prince Nana Osei Bandoh, Prince Nana is an American-born [[UsefulNotes/{{Ghana}} Ghanian]]-raised {{Professional Wrestl|ing}}er and manager best known for his work for Wrestling/RingOfHonor. He debuted in 1997 and worked primarily for Northeastern independents. ˛˛Among his in-ring achievements, he is a former [[ ECWA Heavyweight Champion]], a former 2x [[ ECWA Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion]], a former [[ Cyberspace (New Jersey) Wrestling Federation Tag Team Champion]] with Sonjay Dutt as The United Nations, and a former [[ NYWC Tag Team Champion]] with Mega as The Foreign Legion.˛˛Wrestling/KofiKingston does not work for him, no matter what Matt Striker told you.˛----˛!! "Ghanian Tropes":˛* AscendedExtra: Did a couple of jobs on Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s ''[[{{BShow}} Jakked]]'' for Wrestling/SteveBlackman and for Wrestling/CrashHolly in 2001.˛* AssKicksYou: Running hip attack to the midsection in the corner.˛* BeardOfEvil: A carefully groomed one, with many of the Embassy getting similar cuts.˛* ByTheHair: Drug Wrestling/DaizeeHaze in this manner to lure Generation Next members [[Wrestling/EvanBourne Matt Sydal]] and Wrestling/RoderickStrong into an ambush, them not knowing Haze was an Embassy [[TheMole mole]].˛* DefeatMeansFriendship: Took in the Outcast Killahs after defeating Diablo Santiago˛* DirtyCoward: He prefers to attack from behind or by proxy and will usually flee from direct confrontation or backpedal while spewing threats.˛* [[ForeignWrestlingHeel Evil Foreigner]]: {{Downplayed|trope}}. While he claims to be Ashanti royalty and has lived in UsefulNotes/{{Ghana}} since he was a child, he is still a US citizen. All of his crown jewels have been citizens as well, even the Sicilian [[Wrestling/TommasoCiampa Ciampa]].˛* EvilMinion: While Stokely Hathaway and Wrestling/VedaScott could wrestle, that wasn't really their role. The "fourth" incarnation of the Embassy was basically Moose nation with Nana as a figurehead.˛* EvilPrince: The people of his nation are over taxed to maintain his lifestyle. This came to an end in 2008.˛* FinishingMove: Double under hook suplex or double under hook DDT.˛* FluffyFashionFeathers: Sometimes has yellow feathers sown into his sleeves˛* GemEncrusted: Most of his outfits that aren't simple business suits˛* HumiliatingWager: He and Wrestling/JoeyRyan lost a beard vs. beard match to Wrestling/NecroButcher and Grizzly Redwood.˛* LondonEnglandSyndrome: He is billed from Ghana, West Africa˛* MalevolentMaskedMen: The Weapons Of MASK DESTRUCTION, who were initially a TagTeam put together to defeat Wrestling/JayLethal, then a {{power trio}} intended to win an ROH tournament.˛* MisplacedRetribution: After regaining his money through Barack Obama's stimulus package, he spent it hiring Bison Smith and sending him after ROH wrestlers in revenge for the promotion's refusal to rehire him while he was broke.˛* NameOfPower: After Jimmy Rave was banned from using the [[Wrestling/AJStyles Styles Clash]] on ROH shows, Rave started using [[Wrestling/AngelinaLove Angel Williams's]] divine crusher, calling it "Greetings From Ghana". This was a {{take that}} to Wrestling/CMPunk, as it has the same startup as Punk's "Welcome To Chicago Motherfucker" but it was more obviously a compliment to Nana, who also uses moves that start with a double under hook.˛* NiceHat: Adorned with several golden crosses. He temporarily lost this crown when he lost the rest of his fortune.˛* NiceJobFixingItVillain: His recruitment of Donovan Dijak did not just lead to the dismantling of the second ROH [[Wrestling/TruthMartini House Of Truth]], but it eventually lead to ''every'' member of that House Of Truth [[TokenEvilTeammate not]] named Wrestling/TaelerHendrix undergoing a HeelFaceTurn.˛* PerkyFemaleMinion: Angel Williams, Vanessa Harding˛* PowerStable: The Embassy, the various incarnations of which have included, among others, Wrestling/DaizeeHaze, Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli, R.D. Evans, Wrestling/NecroButcher, [[Wrestling/AngelinaLove Angel Williams]], Wrestling/JoeyRyan, Wrestling/{{Rh|yno}}ino, Wrestling/{{Abyss}}, Jimmy Rave, Alex Shelley and Wrestling/ShawnDaivari.˛* {{Rich B|itch}}astard: Gladly uses his royal authority to pad his pocket book so his wrestlers can indulge in life's finer aspects.˛* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: He's a foreign ruler who worked as a manager in an American wrestling promotion.˛* SquashMatch: Squashed Eric Tuttle on the very first ROH show, leading Tuttle to take Nana up as a TagTeam partner.˛* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: He did end up leaving in 2006 but after losing his riches in 2008 he kept crashing ROH shows begging for a job despite being drug away by security three times.˛* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Shrimp cocktail˛* UnknownRival: Back in the wider Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA, it was Nigerian Prince Kanu, who was very easy to set off just by mentioning Nana, and would frequently be unfavorably compared to Nana once this was discovered. All Nana had to say about him is not getting in Nana's way, which wasn't even directed at Kanu directly but in response to other managers being around the area that weekend. Nana likely had no idea who he was. That said, Kanu's more known for his fine print contracts to Nana's bribes and consolidation, they have little reason to overlap.˛* VerbalTic: "Hah?"˛* VillainWithGoodPublicity: While strictly serving as a commentator in ROH Nana ''was'' still looking for ways to cause trouble, his good behavior was simply not finding anything he felt was worth the effort. And Nana was the same meddling coward he had always been while managing Dijak. It was simply Wrestling/TruthMartini being against a solidly baby face Dijak and Nana being in Dijak's corner that made Nana look good.˛* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: When Angel Williams was in the Embassy, it was cool, for the most part. When Jade Chung was in, she was a footstool. When Daizee Haze was acquired, she was treated a goddess as Chung [[MistreatmentInducedBetrayal turned on the group to side with Generation Next]].˛* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Wrestler, manager, talent scout, commentator, he kept finding someway to stick around.˛* YouFool: He's repeatedly announced a possible departure for a brighter future in WWE and let those who bothered to listen know they were fools!˛----
