Blade Braxton

Troy "Blade Braxton" Ferguson was The Pink Assassin a.k.a. The Midnight Rose on the independent wrestling scene. He also infrequently wrote the Jobber of the Week column at

Troy's first personal interaction with RD Reynolds was in 2002 when he entered a submission contest. His entry made with his friend Don Mason, "The Revenge of the Black Scorpion", in which "Uncle" Burt Reynolds threatened his wrestling cousin, won the competition and RD's admiration for their efforts.

In August 2005, he and RD began a weekly podcast, WrestleCrap Radio. In 2007 they also co-authored The WrestleCrap Book of Lists (Exclamation Point)!
Outside of wrestling, Troy ran a flooring business. He was also an amateur actor, specializing in horror, and Troma movies in particular.

Troy passed away suddenly on March 28, 2021, ending WrestleCrap Radio with him. He was only 46 years old.

  • He had a recurrent drinking problem. His drink of choice was a Miller Lite and V8.
  • His friend, Don... Don Mason, is an odd fellow.
  • He had an autographed photo of Jameson on his wall, maybe the only autographed photo of Jameson in existence.
  • His "Katie Vick Fan Club" sign was confiscated by WWE security in 2007.
  • As the alter-ego of The Pink Assassin Midnight Rose, he was asked by WWE security to take off the mask at a March 2009 Raw where he was seated front-row center.
  • When he got quite drunk he sometimes called people 'dawg' like he was Randy Jackson. This often caused RD to "wow" in response.
  • He constantly and consistently had Big Announcements that he failed to follow up on, assuming he even had any. 
  • Time out real quick.
