The Midnight Circus is a tag team founded in 2018, consisting of Parisian wrestlers and real-life couple Roxy Rapture and Sophie Dubois. They are currently signed to High Point Wrestling and PRIZMA.

History

Dubois' in-ring debut came at National E-Wrestling Day 6, in a fourway match against Rose Parker, Bianca Mesias and Jamie Haskins at which she represented The Midnight Circus in the hopes of earning her team a chance at the Women's Tag Team Championship. The match was ultimately won by Haskins.

The Midnight Circus didn't debut as a team until almost a full year later; they eventually appeared at PRIZMA's Somersault Weekend in January 2019, wrestling on Night #1 against The Blazing Force. They won the match thanks in part to interference from the Lucha Council.

Members

Roxy Rapture

Roxy Rapture (born March 30, 1995), nicknamed 'La Fière,' is a French-Algerian professional wrestler. She was born in Paris, France, to first-generation Algerian immigrants; she has candidly mentioned in interviews that she courted trouble with the law in her late teens and early twenties, predominantly for her habit of engaging in illegal underground gambling as part of the notorious all-female crime collective known only as Le Cirque ("The Circus"). She is the more ostentatious wrestler of the two, frequently performing flips and agile moves not typically employed by wrestlers of her height (6'2") and build (210lbs).

Sophie Dubois

Sophie Dubois (born February 19, 1992), nicknamed 'La Colère,' is a French professional wrestler. She was born in the South of France, near the border with Spain, but relocated to Paris alone in 2007 due to familial tension revolving around Dubois' transgender identity. Upon arriving in Paris, Dubois was homeless for more than a year, eventually using forgery skills she picked up on the streets to affiliate herself with Le Cirque, who in turn provided her with housing and led to her partnership with Roxy Rapture. Of the two, Dubois is the more technical wrestler; she is also adept at mimicking the signature moves of other wrestlers with very little training.
