Suicide in January 2010
|First game||TNA Impact! (2008)|
|Created by||Total Nonstop Action Wrestling|
|Voiced by||Brandon Silvestry|
Suicide is a fictional character of TNA Impact!, a video game based on the professional wrestling promotion Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). In December 2008, TNA introduced the Suicide character on television as a real-life wrestler.
Suicide is a former TNA X Division Champion. Though the character has been primarily portrayed by Frankie Kazarian, Christopher Daniels took up the mantle for a time in early 2009. In June 2010 Akira Kawabata became the third man to portray the character.
Suicide was originally created by Midway Games as an original character for the TNA Impact! video game, released on September 9, 2008. As an original character, Midway had full license with how to use him, unlike with the other characters, who were either trademarked by TNA or by the respective wrestler. The character is voiced by Senshi, who also did motion capture for the game and appears as himself.
In the game, Suicide is a professional wrestler moving up the ranks of TNA Wrestling, when, prior to his match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, he is approached by The Latin American Xchange, who tell him to throw the match. Suicide doesn't comply, goes on to win the title and is as a result beaten up beyond recognition by LAX and left for dead in Mexico. Doctors find him and aid in his recovery, offering free plastic surgery as well. This allows the player to create their own look for Suicide, establishing his new identity in the process.
From there, Suicide (under his new identity) finds that he has a knack for professional wrestling. After success in Mexico and a U.S. Army Base, Kevin Nash recruits Suicide for the TNA roster. After conquering the X Division and the tag team division, the latter of which with Eric Young as his partner to form the tag team known collectively as Salty Biscuits, LAX kidnaps Young and orders Suicide to go and win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship from Kurt Angle and then drop the title to Jeff Jarrett. After regaining the World Heavyweight Championship Suicide remembers his past and finds out that it was Jarrett who called the hit on him. After Nash and Samoa Joe are able to save Young from LAX, Suicide gains revenge on Jarrett by defeating him in the match for the World Heavyweight Championship.
During every episode of TNA's primary television program, Impact!, after August 14, 2008, the words "whoissuicide.com" flashed on the screen for less than a second. On the website, it showed that Suicide was being taken from the game to real life television. At Final Resolution, Suicide made his debut by attacking Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley, the Motor City Machine Guns. At Destination X, the character, with Christopher Daniels replacing the injured Frankie Kazarian under the mask, won the X Division Championship in an Ultimate X match. On the May 14, 2009, episode of TNA, after weeks of accusing Daniels of being Suicide, the Motor City Machine Guns and Lethal Consequences (Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed) looked to remove the mask of Suicide. This prompted Daniels to come out and save Suicide from being exposed. Suicide wrestled Daniels at the Sacrifice pay-per-view event, in which Suicide retained via time limit draw after Daniels refused a victory assisted by the Motor City Machine Guns. According to the storyline, this all officially cleared Daniels of having donned the mask. At Slammiversary, Suicide retained the X Division Championship against Shelley, Sabin, Lethal, and Creed in a King of the Mountain match. On July 16, Suicide lost his championship to Homicide after he cashed in his "Feast or Fired" briefcase. After not being seen for a few weeks, Suicide made his return at Hard Justice to compete in the Steel Asylum match, which he lost because of D'Angelo Dinero. On the August 20 edition of Impact! Suicide attacked Dinero after his match with Consequences Creed. On the September 17 edition of Impact! Dinero defeated Suicide in a grudge match. At No Surrender Dinero defeated Suicide again, this time in a Falls Count Anywhere match. The following week on Impact! Suicide finally defeated Dinero, by doing the Suicide Solution on a trash can in a street fight. On the October 15 edition of Impact! Homicide stole Suicide's costume and claims to now know his true identity. On the December 3 edition Impact! Suicide made peace with Dinero and joined him, Matt Morgan and Hernandez in their war with Rhino, Team 3D and Jesse Neal. At Final Resolution Morgan, Hernandez, Dinero and Suicide defeated Neal, Team 3D and Rhino in an eight-man elimination tag team match.
On the February 18, 2010, edition of Impact! Kazarian returned to TNA and will not be portraying the Suicide character any longer. The character, this time portrayed by Japanese wrestler Akira Kawabata, made its return four months later on June 14, losing to Magnus in a match taped for Xplosion.
