Wayne is a survivor in Dead Island Riptide. He is first found on the beach with Harlow after the hero is found washed ashore. He and Harlow stick around the beach looking for other survivors before heading to the Paradise Survival Camp.

Wayne returns to the camp with Harlow after they find Samuel Hardy washed ashore. When Hardy explains what is going to happen to Palanai, Wayne is horrified to find out the island will be nuked.

After Wayne evacuates to Halai with the group, he begins to act out, clearly stressed from the situation, and claims he's going to drink and party.

Wayne flees to the Santa Maria Mission with the other survivors, after nearly being bitten by a zombie in Marik's Marina.

It is revealed that while in the World War Two Japanese Tunnels, Wayne was bitten. Harlow Jordan knew this, and pushed him away, into some toxic chemicals. This caused the Kuru virus in him to mutate, turning him into a huge zombie, known as the Wrestler. Before he turned, Trevor Rogers locked him in a ferry station maintenance facility outside the tunnels, leaving the hero to put him down as the other survivors watch in horror.
