Story[edit | edit source]
Nicknamed the "Florida Wild Horse", Gunloc grew as a street fighter in the slums. He trained under Mike Haggar along with his friend, rival and fellow wrestler Biff Slamkovich, and they became famous CWA wrestlers. Gunloc once tried to put the moves on Mike's daughter Jessica, but after she ignored him, Cody got into a fight with him for it. He later did it again, and Haggar was not amused by this, which caused them to get into a fight.
In contrast to Biff's disposition, Gunloc is quick to anger. This berserker style of wrestling has cost him a couple of victories in the ring.
Gunloc has yet to make an appearance in the mainline Street Fighter games, but a character relations chart in Street Fighter V: A Visionary Book lists him as part of the CWA alongside Biff.
Other Appearance[edit | edit source]
In Blade's ending in the Street Fighter: The Movie arcade game, he is revealed to actually be Gunloc acting as a deep cover agent in Shadaloo. After defeating Shadaloo, Gunloc is stated to have returned to his wrestling career.
Blade was given a profile and new artwork on the official Street Fighter V website in 2016. With Blade's incorporation into the main Street Fighter canon due to his Street Fighter V profile, his official stats were listed, with his height, weight, and likes being identical to Gunloc's, but whether or not the two are explicitly one and the same in canon or if the stats were just a nod to the original backstory of the character is unknown.
