"With biceps you could crush nuts with, Gabe DeGrossi is the ultimate action hero. " - CamERA on Gabe's acting
Gabe "The Glue Man" Degrossi is a professional wrestler and former Boston Celtic. He made his first appearance at the inaugural Jerma Rumble, in which he entered as the 17th contestant. During Glue Man's entrance, Jerma announces the creation of a poll on Twitter seeking to determine the worst shitty character ever made; within ten seconds, Glue Man receives 97,000 votes, technically making him the worst shitty character in the Jerma universe. Despite this, Glue Man went on to prove a formidable combatant in the ring, exhibiting both remarkable strength and intelligence; indeed, it is possible that he is the smartest character ever conceived.
As stated by Jerma in Jermania 2014, Glue Man's physical body is comprised of glue, the result of a tragic incident at a glue factory while he was still known as Gabe Degrossi of the Boston Celtics basketball team.
It was revealed in the video "Who's Ready for some B-Ball?" that Glue Man was once the best basketball player to ever live. He was the captain of the Boston Celtics and a teammate of fellow wrestler, Frank Pizza. Because of these two, the Celtics never lost any matches and Degrossi was dubbed "The Glue Man" for his ability to grip the ball as though his hands were covered in glue. He was also known to one-hand lob the ball across the court into the basket. He also taught the rest of the Celtic's team this technique, causing them to never miss a full court shot for most of the 2015 season, until Frank Pizza missed a shot against the Milwaukee Bucks. At the end of the video, Glue Man got awarded with the "Player of the Game" award. Later on, the announcer states that he "hopes that nothing bad happens to this guy like ten years from now" hinting that Glue Man had a terrible accident that ruined his life and made him become what he is today, made out of glue. It is not revealed yet what happened.
Glue Man is shown to be one of the worst "shit characters" in the Jerma Rumble. He is a useless, disgusting being with light gray skin that is supposed to resemble the color of glue. He is one of the few characters to have a sixty-pack. He is shown wearing brown pants and dark blue boots. He is always seen wearing a long cyan cape. His face is extremely long and at some points it looks like it's as pointy as The Pencil's head. He has a very large chin, long and thin ears and an oddly shaped mouth which makes him look as though he is always sad. His long nose sharply contrasts his small, pupil-less eyes, and his eyebrows are barely visible. He has an extremely large forehead. During the Jerma Rumble- Live Action his appearance changed, with him being chubby instead of muscular and wearing a different outfit: with green gloves, blue boots, black pants and a more prominent blue cape. It has been noted that punching glue man is mostly harmless due to his soft glue-like skin
In The RingEdit
Glue Man is usually shown to favor kicks instead of punches. For some unknown reason, he always aims for the oldest one in the ring, leading some to believe that he is an intelligent fighter. Before the first Jerma Rumble, Glue Man made his debut in a Jerma Wrestling event as a 22 year old newbie under the stage name "G-Grossi" where he was almost killed by Dogman, the Magical Dog Magician.
Jerma Rumble 1 Edit
He first appeared in Jerma Rumble as the 17th fighter, and is subsequently double-teamed while trying to attack Grandpa and Danny Devito. After some time he manages to toss Danny Devito out of the ring. He continues to fight until the end; after Jerma eliminates Byeah #419, he is one of the two last contenders. Glue Man holds out for roughly a minute before being defeated by Jerma, the Champion of the First Jerma Rumble.
Jerma Rumble 2 and Jermania 2014 Edit
Glue Man is not a contestant in the Second Jerma Rumble. However, after Jerma is eliminated, a behind-the-scenes camera captures Glue Man walking to his car when Jerma suddenly attacks him. Jerma proceeds to smash Glue Man's head onto his own car window before security is called. This assault by Jerma caused Glue Man to turn face ( become a fan-favorite) and protagonist during Jermania 2014. Glue Man's goal in Jermania 2014 is to defeat Jerma in Ladders match and him . However, both competitors lost the bout after a interference from recent Jerma Rumble winner, Captain Crunch.

Jermania - Stream Edition Edit
During the first ever Jermania - Stream Edition, Jerma and Glue Man participate in a backstage brawl (aka "Throw The Guy Back And Forth From Shoe Box To Shoe Box Fight") . During the brawl Glue Man held his own despite Jerma performing some despicable moves on him, causing the crowd to boo Jerma. The brawl ended after Glue Man performed a finishing move on Jerma, possibly killing him.
He was also notably without his cape for the entirety of the event.
Glue Man - A Timeless Hero Edit
Glue Man was the first creature of the Jermaverse to ever appear on a Human T-shirt in his tribute. Thanks to Lord Jerma, limited humans have had the chance of officially immortalizing Glueman's body and owning a piece of Jerma Channel History.

The Boston Celtics always score from the other side of the field by chunking the ball across the court one-handed into the basket.
