Reporter & Wrestler
"Answering questions for reporters and taking photos is what the Wrestler is known for, but we've never seen him actually wrestle."
Wrestler is a champion of wrestling, and agreed to take an interview after an important match at the Rhythm Arena for the Wrestling 20XX newspaper. He defended his title in 15 minutes with his Z-Suplex special move and was subsequently interviewed. Reporter asked him various questions, such as how it feels to defend his title, what the turning point of the match was, what strategy he plans to use for the next opponent, and one from the fans, to all of which he simply responded with "Eh." Reporter then responded with "Whoa, you go, big guy!", prompting Wrestler to strike a pose, before ending the interview. Alongside her, there are other reporters who request poses to take pictures of.
During the interview, they received a statement that Wrestler's father was saving all his articles. When asked about it after the interview, the Wrestler responded with "Eh.", which displayed the respect he has towards his father. When his father was asked about it, he simply nodded with an affirmative sounding grunt.
The pair return in Remix 4 in Rhythm Heaven Fever, where Reporter wears a traditional orange kimono and has pigtails while the Wrestler appears as a ninja, wearing a blue ninja mask, blue pants, two blue sweatbands and a katana taped onto his back. In Remix 9 in Rhythm Heaven Fever, they appear again, with a stark red, white and black color scheme. In Songbird Remix in Rhythm Heaven Megamix, Reporter wears a long yellow jacket and a yellow cap with a bird on it, while Wrestler wears yellow clothes, with a yellow mask that resembles a bird, and wings on his back. Inputting the codeword MATCH into Police Call calls up a match, during which Wrestler poses and flexes on the opponent, all the while Captain Tuck compliments his actions. The call ends with Tuck saying "That's it!", with Wrestler reacting with a confused grunt. In the Challenge Train course Wario...Where? 2: The Sequel, Reporter & Wrestler are dressed up like Mona and Wario-Man respectively.
Wrestler appears in Rhythm Tengoku The Best Plus Comic in 01 同窓会 (Reunion), where he appears as one of the many characters entering the Café, and in 33レスラーとファン(Wrestler and Fans), where a crowd has formed outside the Rhythm Arena for the Wrestler Fan Event. Inside, T.J. Snapper is taking pictures of Wrestler and his fans as part of the Wrestler Fan Satsuei-kai (レスラーファン撮影会?, Wrestler Fan Photo Session), specifically with the Martian, the Lumbercats, Saffron, Tibby, Colin, Bertram and Philip. At the end, Wrestler wishes he had more female fans.
