"We're gonna do this confederate style, boy!"

Ruffneck is a circuit fighter and a playable character in Def Jam Vendetta.


Ruffneck grew up with his mother in Missouri after his father was killed in Vietnam. Once part of an anti-government militia group, Ruffneck went to prison for conspiracy to bomb an IRS office. When he was released, he started scrapping on the circuit, earning a reputation as a dirty fighter who will do anything to win. His jailhouse ties to the Aryan Vanguard make him highly unpopular on the circuit, though everyone loves to watch him get beat.

Role In Def Jam Vendetta[]

Ruffneck is one of the fighters in The Warehouse during story mode. He later teams up with Arii in a tag team match.
