FCW Sunshine: Fletcher Chase



Topic/Subject: Today, I will be showing a promo segment that involves a professor.

Wrestler: “The Professor” Fletcher Chase (Gavin Garrison/El Maestro).

Background Information: Fletcher Chase is from St. Louis, Missouri. Before getting to wrestling, he was a football player.

On September 28, 2007, he made his debut for Derby City Wrestling (DCW) using the ring name Gavin Garrison in a match against Joey Matthews.

Here’s a match between him and BKNY in DCW on January 10, 2008.

Here’s a match between him and Judge Reason in DCW on April 17, 2008.

On July 23, 2008, he became a part of faction in DCW teaming up with Brent Wellington, Ashley Stefan Streetman, Moose, and Reggie known as Theta Lampda Psi.

His last match in DCW was on November 19, 2008, in a six man tag team match Igotta Brewski & Totally Awesome (Kamikaze Kid & Sucio) as he signed a contract with WWE.

On March 19, 2008, he made his debut for Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), using the ring name Gavin Garrison in a tag team against Los Locos (Ramon & Raul) teaming up with James Thomas.

He then began teaming up with Brent Wellington in OVW as the Theta Lampda Psi came into OVW along with Ashley Stefan Streetman, Moose, and Reggie.

On October 29, 2008, Theta Lampda Psi lost a tag team match in a loser leaves OVW as he and Brent Wellington lost to The Mobile Homers (Adam Revolver & Ted McNaler).

On November 11, 2008, he made his return to OVW using the ring name El Maestro teaming up with Theta Lampda Psi to take on the The Mobile Homers (Adam Revolver, Ted & Tommy McNaler).

His last match in OVW was on December 17, 2008, in a tag team match against The Mobile Homers (Adam Revolver & Ted McNaler) teaming up with Brent Wellington as he signed a contract with WWE.

In early 2009, he signed a contract with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and was sent to their developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).

He made his FCW debut at a live event using the ring name Fletcher Chase in a match against Ricky Ortiz.

He made his FCW TV debut in a match against Abraham Saddam Washington that went into a no contest.

His last match in FCW was on September 3, 2009, in a tag team match against Fred Rosser and Johnny Prime where he teamed up with Troy Jackman as he was released from his WWE contract.

After his release from WWE, he hasn’t wrestled since then.


With his great character and great charisma, he could have been a great manager or authority figure for WWE.

My Thoughts: Fletcher Chase was a very interesting individual. Even though he wasn’t really a great wrestler in the ring, the man has a good look, he has certain presence about him every time he talks on the mic, he has a good character, and he has great charisma. Professor!

Video: This video contains a promo segment between Fletcher Chase, Abraham Washington, and Dawson Alexander on June 7, 2009.

My Thoughts: This promo segment was good as Fletcher Chase got to showcase his mic skills here.

I like how when Fletcher Chase was making his way to the ring, he seemed all confident and cocky knowing that he might be General Manager of FCW as he was yelling and shouting as he was making his entrance. Small details like that can really add a character so I liked what Fletcher Chase was doing as he made his way to the ring.

The moment when Dawson Alexander entered the ring, I like how Fletcher Chase immediately grabbed the mic from Savannah and told Dawson Alexander that he must have a very good reason on why he’s out here as he just made his FCW debut recently and that he doesn’t done anything to prove his worth in FCW. I like how Fletcher Chase was very confident of himself in terms of his abilities and importance. This showed that he is a very cocky and arrogant man who knows what he’s doing and he believes in.

Also, I like how the moment Dawson Alexander said there will be a match between Fletcher Chase and Abraham Saddam Washington, Fletcher Chase immediately looked like he got this in the bag and that he knows he can beat Abraham Saddam Washington because he’s so sure of himself. Again, small details like that can really add a character.

Not only that, the moment when Dawson Alexander announced that the special guest referee was Sheamus O’Shaunessy, Fletcher Chase was going insane as he didn’t want Sheamus O’Shaunessy to be special guest referee so his reaction was well executed.

Good promo segment that showcased Fletcher Chase’s character here.

It’s a shame that WWE released him as he could have been a manager or a type of authority figure if they weren’t confident with his in-ring skills as he has great charisma. Unfortunately, he hasn’t wrestled since he was released from FCW so whatever he is doing currently, I wish him nothing but success. Professor!

After watching the video, give me your thoughts on the video or the wrestler himself. Thank you.
