We’re All Nerds Episode 7: Rick Roland AKA Rex Lawless

One half of The Closers opens the book on his early 2000’s Comics obsession.

Rick Roland knows a thing or two about larger than life personalities, himself and Sloane Caprice serving as The Closers, personal protection for Chikara’s “The Big Deal”, AKA WWE’s Hornswoggle. Rick can also be seen as his alter ego Rex Lawless, cutting a swath of brutal destruction all up and down the US Indie Wrestling circuit.

These guys sure do have a lot of different names and vocations, you’d think they were Superheroes or something. Rick knows the lifestyle well, being a huge fan of Spider-Man and the X-Men, but also delving deeper into even geekier obsessions, like Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy. This proves once and for all that just because a dude can crush your skull like a grape, it doesn’t mean that he can’t get down with Yuffie and Cait Sith.
