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


Born and raised in Detroit, Headache has always had a tough time controlling his temper. After repeated incidents of violence, he was finally sent to prison for assault. Once there, he wound up serving twice his original sentence because of frequent infractions against fellow prisoners and guards. When he was released, he turned to organized fighting as a means to release his pent-up anger. Though he remains a vicious fighter in the ring, he has been taking Anger Management therapy and friends say he has calmed down noticeably in his personal life.

Role In Def Jam Vendetta

Headache is encountered in Sanctuary during story mode.


  • "I'm ruthless. I'm vicious. I'm a very bad man."
