Wrestling / FILL

Go To

FILL, short for Federação Internacional de Luta Livre, is a Brazilian professional wrestling company based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Established in 2007, FILL displays a mentality that is a mix between North American and Japanese wrestling, with rules borrowed from both styles, and faces and heels not always clearly defined.

FILL currently recognizes three championships:

  • Cinturão de Pesos Pesados da FILL (FILL Heavyweight Championship): Sherman since July 2, 2017;
  • Advertisement:
  • Rei dos Voadores da FILL (FILL King of High Flyers): Gabriel Nogueira since April 22, 2017;
  • Cinturão de Duplas da FILL (FILL Tag Team Championship): Shining Wizards (Tytan and Vitão) since April 23, 2017.

Tropes associadas à FILL

  • Acrofatic: Tytan is a 285lb guy who executes the Senton Bomb as his trademark maneuver.
  • Action Girl: Every female wrestler in the roster, but most notably Domina.
  • Affably Evil: Anark Andy. Although a heel most of the time, he just oozes with charisma.
  • Alliterative Name: Anark Andy, Black Bird, Dínamo Dourado.
  • Arch-Enemy: El Garra and Tytan have grown to be sworn enemies over time.
  • Ascended Extra: Rodrigo Mineiro started his career in FILL as a referee. Now he's the Cruiserweight division's General Manager.
  • Ass Shove: One of the most cringeworthy moments of Anark Andy's vitriol-ridden battles with Gabriel Nogueira over the King of High Flyers' belt was when Andy shoved a thumb up Nogueira's.

  • Bad Boss: Raoni Warrior, during the Sádicos era. Rodrigo Mineiro is slowly revealing himself to be one as well.
  • Bait-and-Switch: Everytime El Garra tells an opponent they "can't see him", he ends the move not with a fist drop, but with a standing moonsault.
  • Big Bad:
    • After Tytan had to take a leave of absence from FILL, Raoni Warrior and his stable, Os Sádicos, took over and basically turned the company upside down.
    • Pezão, as the leader of the Inconfidência stable.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Pierre, the Irish Guy, cut his promos in English.
    Lorain Campos: I didn't get a single word of what he said.
  • Break the Badass: After being abused by Tytan and the Inconfidência, El Garra snapped into a much more cruel demeanor, complete with mad cackling and thirst for revenge.
  • Brick Joke/Arc Words: "Nothing personal. Just business." First uttered by Tytan to El Garra when the former stole the Resta 1 clause from the latter... Only to be repeated by the latter when removing the former of the Heavyweight Championship two years later.

  • Cool Mask: El Garra, El Grande, Dínamo Dourado, Sombrero Voador. More recently, Kalysa.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: When El Garra was meant to wrestle Elemento X for the Tag Team Championships but his partner Vinny Darko never showed up, the masked wrestler agreed to take on both Pezão and Iron Charles at the same time. Didn't go well.
  • Discontinuity Nod: M2 taunted Targueta into a match with Fábio Moraes following the abortion of Targueta's band, A Tropa.
  • Foreign Wrestling Heel: Corleone, straight from Palermo, Italy.
  • Gimmick Matches: Almost every event has its signature match:
    • Absolutismo features the aptly named Absolutismo Match - an 8-man elimination brawl where being thrown out of the ring is as much of an elimination method as being pinned or forced to submit;
    • Seleção Natural features a 5-man Championship Scramble, not unlike WWE's Unforgiven experiment (here's what the other wiki has to say about it);
    • Por Honra e Glória features a 5-man Gauntlet Match;
    • Resta 1 features a Royal Rumble-esque battle royale;
    • Outubro ou Nada features a Survivor Series-esque 5 on 5 elimination match.
  • Ho Yay: War. Club.
  • I Have the High Ground: El Garra lives this. Sombrero Voador, while more of a daredevil type, will also pull off risky moves from big heights.
    • Heck, FILL even has the Escalada Para o Céu (Climb Towards The Sky) match, during which a wrestler must mandatorily execute a top rope move before trying to end the match.
  • Large Ham: Felipe Lima, when working as FILL's ring announcer.
    • The Quiet One: Ironically enough, outside of this role, the co-General Manager is so soft spoken, it's hard to hear him.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Anark Andy, mostly because of his antics. Gabriel Nogueira, thanks to his hefty fanbase, can come across as one as well.
  • No-Sell: Usually what happens when Tytan gets in a lariat contest with someone about his size.
  • Omniscient Council of Vagueness: The National Wrestling Council, FILL's current "owners". They have no faces or known members.
  • Power Stable: Pezão's Inconfidência: at one point, a 7-man band that wished nothing but take over the entire company.
  • Power Trio:
    • Suplex City (Tytan, Sherman and Domina);
    • War Club (Anark Andy, Gabriel Nogueira and Railan);
    • A Tropa (Bob Castro, Soldier Boy and Targueta), even if very short lived.
  • Pungeon Master: Joe Cool, play-by-play commentator.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Anark Andy gets particularly irritated whenever someone badmouths his colorful (mostly pink) tights.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Pancho Batista. That is, when he wasn't ready to throw down, as he made a couple of matches himself. Currently, Felipe Lima.
  • Sticky Fingers: Lorain Campos' whole schtick before becoming a hardcore rocker.
  • The Giant: Muro - pretty hard to miss a 6-foot-5 fellow.
  • The Mole: Vitão betrayed Tytan and joined the Inconfidência... Only to reveal he was a double agent all along.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Black Bird made his debut as Magic Érico's tag team partner. Two years later, he's a two-time Heavyweight Champion.
  • Unrelated Brothers: Fábio Moraes and Mary Soarez, despite being siblings, have never fought on the same side. As a matter of fact, Fábio attempted to eliminate Mary from the latest Resta 1 Match himself, after "saving" her from Iron Charles and Anark Andy.
  • Wham Line: "It's 3 versus 2, big buddy."note 
  • Wild Samoan: Averted by Kuma Joe: despite being billed from Samoa, he's a token badass on a leather jacket and shades.
  • You Wanna Get Sued?: Played for laughs everytime someone pays homage to a famous wrestler in a major company. El Garra is one of the greatest offenders.
    Rodrigo Mineiro: Oh no, time to call the imaginary legal team.
