The Karate Skills

"Juke Joint" Lucas Calhoun is an American Professional Wrestler from Richmond, OH best known for his work for CHIKARA. He arrived in CHIKARA in 2014 as Volgar, a follower of Jimmy Jacobs' in The Flood, the amalgamation of Heel groups out to destroy CHIKARA and led by Deucalion. After the Flood was dissolved, he drifted until Kevin Condron told him that he knew his secret, leading to him unmasking and reinventing himself as Calhoun. He has yet to hold a title.

He has no known connection to Haystacks Calhoun.


"That Ol' Trope Joint":

  • Abhorrent Admirer: At CHIKARA Sword Of Destiny June 13, 2015, Heidi Lovelace and Icarus teamed against Kevin Condron and Calhoun. Calhoun pressed Heidi above his head and dropped her into a swing dance position. Heidi did not like it at all.
  • Arch-Enemy: Professor Nicodemus and The Proteus Wheel
  • Carpet of Virility: Type 1, as shown above.
  • Cloning Blues: Angsted a lot about being Volgar #77 before deciding to fight back against the Proteus Wheel.
  • Cool Shades: As seen above.
  • Dark Secret: His current identity was it, and it was exposed by Kevin Condron at Back to Skull.
    • His past as Volgar, and his subsequent connection to Jeremy Leary and the Proteus Wheel, ended up becoming an even bigger example.
  • The Dragon: He was Jimmy Jacobs' acolyte.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared during the 11/30/13 scavenger hunt event, along with his now-former partner Callux.
  • Elvis Impersonator: His persona as "Juke Joint" was an Expy of The Honky Tonk Man, with the addition of him bragging about his Karate skills.

  • Enemy Mine: With Jeremy Leary, to take on the Proteus Wheel.
  • Finishing Move: Samoan Drop
  • I Have Many Names: Chris HorrorShow, HorrorShow, Derrick Von Doom, Volgar, "Juke Joint" Lucas Calhoun.
  • Lovecraft Country: Invoked in his promo at The Empty Child, which was held at The Old Country Banquet Hall in Enfield, CT. He said that New England was the home of "Miskatonic University, Arkham and The Colour Out of Space".
  • Meaningful Name: Volgar is a derivative of Volga, both the name of the largest river in Europe based in Russia and also the Russian word for "wet", both tying into the theme of The Flood. Later on, it also tied into the Proteus Wheel, as Proteus was a Greek sea god.
  • Meaningful Rename: Like Kevin Condron (and prompted by him), threw down his former masked identity.
  • Not What I Signed on For: Reacted with shock and horror after Kevin Condron murdered Orbit Adventure Ant.
  • Power Stable:
    • The Flood
    • Battleborn
  • Red Baron: "Juke Joint", "Rockabilly Roughneck"
  • Replacement Goldfish: That journal Missile Assault Man carried around suggested that he wasn't the first Volgar, which was later confirmed when a second Volgar was introduced as part of the Proteus Wheel and confirmed further when he directly admitted to being the 77th Volgar.
  • Stout Strength: A pretty hefty guy but certainly a strong one, as well.
  • Tag Team:
    • (as Derrick Von Doom in NWA Fusion [Virginia]): The 8th Street Razors, with Adrian Blaze
  • Unrelated Brothers: To Jeremy Leary.
  • The Von Trope Family: Derrick Von Doom would have been a Type 2.

How well does it match the trope?
