PERSONALITY DESCRIPTION
Craig's mantra is essentially to be himself. He loves rich tea biscuits and salt and vinegar crisps - and if you're looking for Vengaboys references at 4am in the morning, he's your guy. He may like to have fun and mess around, but wrestling is one thing he does take seriously. When in the ring, he doesn't have to worry about the correct pronunciation of the word "scone", or whether a Jaffa cake is a cake or a biscuit. Instead, he can focus solely on his opponent(s).


APPEARANCE DESCRIPTION
Craig's a ginger - let's not beat around the bush. He knows he's ginger, and he embraces it. He's heard all the jokes throughout his life, and none of them bother him. His facial hair is always noticeable, but never does he allow it to grow too long to the point it becomes uncomfortable and itchy.

IN-RING GEAR:
Tights (usually black, though could be a variety of colours) with a coloured (usually a bright colour, such as orange or green) pipe design around the thigh. He wears a belt of the same colour. Above the design is a logo containing his name. His kneepads will contain a black Union Flag, and his boots will be plain black. He wears a pair of elbow pads, and tapes up ONLY his right hand (it's believed he does this in honour of his late uncle, though this has not been confirmed). When entering the ring, he will sometimes have a Union Flag draped around himself - or tied around him.

CHARACTER BACKGROUND
As a child, Craig was obsessed with association football. At the age of eight, he played for his local-side's 'under-11s' age group, and his development showed no signs of slowing down. He relied on his pace and trickery down the flanks to be able to glide past opponents, something which made him stand out from the crowd. Professional scouts across the country caught word of him when he was fourteen-years-old, and he was offered trials by several top-division clubs - including his beloved Chelsea FC. However, at this period of his life Craig was starting to fall in love with professional wrestling - having watched his uncle compete in many different companies. He had convinced his uncle - Randy Evans - to train him, after months of begging. So while the idea of joining a professional football academy would be a lot of young boys' dreams, Craig had a huge decision to make. To the shock of all of his friends and family, he turned down every offer he had and chose to focus on a future in professional wrestling.

After his uncle’s untimely death, Craig’s desire to make it as a wrestler increased tenfold. He stepped up his training, not just physically but mentally and psychologically. He watched thousands of matches, hundreds of promos. Whatever he could find to aid his development, he used it. Craig made his professional debut in August of 2012, where he signed for World Turmoil Federation on the Bebo Wrestling Network. During this spell of his career he successfully picked up the WTF Television and WTF World Heavyweight Championships, becoming the last man to achieve both honours. As was often the case with competitors on the BWN, Craig was not exclusive to one federation. He made his debut for Online Wrestling Alliance in November of 2012, where he picked up a Tag Team Championship reign with who would go on to become his rival: Zack Richards. Craig won the Pot of Gold, entitling him to a Championship opportunity when he so chose. However, he defeated Zack Richards for the OWA World Heavyweight Championship without needing to cash-in his opportunity. So when he lost the title in an Elimination Chamber, he cashed in the Pot of Gold to regain it just twelve minutes later. When he departed from OWA in July 2013, he left the dying BWN behind.

Seeking pastures new, Craig signed for World Elite Wrestling. He picked up the WEW Television Championship during his third match with the company, with it earning himself an opportunity at the WEW Championship. Craig cashed-in on his opportunity, but failed to defeat Chance Rugani. However, he did later win the WEW Championship by defeating Chris McKenzie in an Inferno match. The remainder of his WEW career was largely unnoteworthy, and he quit the company in July 2014 under unceremonious circumstances. After a brief run in VoW, Craig returned to action in 2016 for Australian promotion IYHWF, before making his CWC debut in 2017.

REGULAR ENTRANCE DESCRIPTION
"Hey you, don't watch that, watch this
This is the heavy heavy monster sound
The nuttiest sound around
So if you've come in off the street
And you're beginning to feel the heat
Well, listen buster
You better start to move your feet
To the rockinest, rock-steady beat
Of Madness
ONE STEP BEYOND!"

Craig leaps through the curtain as the words "ONE STEP BEYOND" blast through the speakers, and he immediately begins to bounce around on the stage. He hypes up the crowd, until "ONE STEP BEYOND" is heard once more. At this point, he begins to run down the ramp, occasionally tapping the fan's hands as he does so.

POWERS: "Now entering the ring, from Worcester, England, weighing in at one-hundred and seventy pounds... he is "The Aircraftman" CRAIG ANDERSON!"

He steps in time with the music, before sliding into the ring and performing a ridiculous dance. He scales the turnbuckle and, standing on the middle ropes, puts his hands to his mouth to yell "ONE STEP BEYOND!" along with the music. At this point, the music comes to a halt and Craig jumps back down onto the mat, removing the Union Flag from his shoulders.
