The King of Crazy

Adam Ortega is an American Professional Wrestler from New York City as Pinkie Sanchez. He debuted in 2004 and has wrestled for CHIKARA, CZW, Dragon Gate USA and numerous other promotions. He debuted in CHIKARA in 2008. In 2009, Carpenter Ant, a character originating in the promotion's Comic Books, started appearing. He even won that year's Torneo Cibernetico with the Inverted CHIKARA Special, a hold Mike Quackenbush had supposedly taught only to Tim Donst. At the 2009 Season Finale Three-Fisted Tales on November 22nd, Carpenter Ant took part in the riot that marked Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes' debut, and subsequently unmasked as Pinkie.

Among his in-ring achievements, he is the inaugural and 2x ISW King of Crazy Champion, a former GCW Extreme Champion, a former ISW Falls Count Anywhere Champion and is the PWM Champion.


"The King of Crazy Tropes":

  • Ass Kicks You: One of his big moves is the Shiny Hiney.
  • Ax-Crazy: To be expected when a Cloudcuckoolander turns Heel.
  • Cassandra Truth: He really did see Vökoder at Chikarasaurus Rex: King of Show.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: In 2010-11 he gradually appeared less and less often until he stopped appearing at all.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: During his match with Frightmare at Through Savage Progress Cuts the Jungle Line, Leonard F. Chikarason and Bryce Remsburg both said that they had tried to have conversations with him and both had given up on it.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: Spent part of 2010 trying to convince the rest of the BDK that he'd seen Vökoder around. None of them believed him. Of course that year Vökoder showed up at the Cibernetico and then unmasked as Larry Sweeney.
  • Demoted to Extra: After starting out as a high ranking member of the BDK, Pinkie's appearances started becoming less frequent and his losses when he did appear more frequent. Eventually he simply quit appearing at all. His second run became this once he departed from the BDK, with less frequent appearances culminating in being attacked by Frightmare and vanishing entirely.
    • The Bus Came Back: At For Your Eyes Only it was revealed that he had been using the identity of one of Dr. Cube's Elite Mooks.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: His 2016 return ended abruptly in May, when he was attacked by Frightmare for teaming with The Colony. In actuality, Pinkie left Chikara for good due to a pay dispute.
  • Finishing Move: Burning Snicklefritz, Shiny Hiney, Moonsault Double Stomp
  • I Was Beaten by a Girl: Kimber Lee squashed him at Beyond Scorned, April 26, 2015.
  • Left Hanging: He and Nøkken defeated Battleborn (Missile Assault Man and "Juke Joint" Lucas Calhoun) to win the Tag Team Gauntlet at King of Trios 2015 Night III, September 6, 2015, giving them the third point for a shot at the CHIKARA Campeonatos de Parejas. Nøkken left CHIKARA immediately after that night. He subsequently deleted his Twitter and has apparently left wrestling altogether. With Pinkie leaving CHIKARA a year later, it's safe to say that they will never cash in those points.
  • The Mole: As Carpenter Ant, infiltrated the Chikara tecnicos on the BDK's orders.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Team Pazuzu is named for the demon in The Exorcist.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Back when he wore pink and blue and danced and wrestled a match with the Neo-Solar Temple, there was no indication he was the kind of guy who could hide under the Carpenter Ant mask, win a Torneo Cibernetico, and help the BDK take over CHIKARA.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: One of his Red Barons is "El Presidente."
  • Parts Unknown: "The Projects of Neverland Ranch"
  • Power Stable:
    • (in CHIKARA): The Colony, later Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes and The Flood
    • (in Dragon Gate USA): DUF (The Dirty Ugly Fucks), with Sami Callihan and Arik Cannon.
    • KOA, with Aaron Epic, Sugar Dunkerton and Taka Suzuki
    • Team Pazuzu, in Beyond Wrestling.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Lots of it. And they name themselves Pinkie. And sometimes they even dye their hair pink.
  • Red Baron: "Pink Ant" while he was in the BDK.
  • Spicy Latino: Generally averted, however, at the start of his four-way GCW Extreme Title defense against Amazing Red, Bandido Jr. and Archadia, one of the commentators called him "The Latin American Dream".
  • Tag Team:
    • Pink Mustaches, with Marion Fontaine
    • Sex and Candy, with Sugar Dunkerton
    • Team WEPA, with LJ Cruz
  • Take That!: After the BDK formed, he posted a blog on where he explained that he disguised himself as Carpenter Ant out of frustration with not being able to get a roster spot as himself, as UltraMantis Black had rejected him for membership in The Order of the Neo-Solar Temple.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: During the BDK riot, someone in the crowd yelled, "Carpenter Ant, what are you doing?" The Colony had always been tecnicos, so it didn't make sense to see a member of the group acting this way. It made sense once he unmasked.

How well does it match the trope?
