Deelon Mack and Deep South Destruction become champions
Brooklyn, N.Y. – In the second weekend of non-televised events, two first-ever champions were crowned as Deelon Mack and Deep South Destruction took home gold.
Jake Tarver and Johnny Fury, two rugged brawlers from Georgia, won an over-the-top-rope battle royal to capture the HWE Tag Team Championships. Tarver would eliminate Trent Maxwell with an illegal assist from Fury, who had been eliminated by the older Maxwells seconds beforehand.
While Deep South Destruction were handed the titles on this night, HWE President Oswald Chapman was on hand to reveal that The Maxwells would receive a rematch at the historic WrestleTopia pay-per-view on Jan. 13.
Meanwhile, TheHWE.com has been informed that Cedric White & Evan Alexander and the Japanese trio DISORDER – who both scored an even number of eliminations in the battle royal – will fight it out at WrestleTopia for an opportunity to face the champions at a later date.
Following in Deep South Destruction's footsteps, Deelon Mack emerged from the weekend with the HWE International Championship. Mack survived a 16-man Tournament, with The Deacon of Destruction defeating EGP, Gafur Maari and, ultimately, Noah Prince to secure the historic accomplishment.
TheHWE.com understands that HWE President Oswald Chapman has already informed Mack that his first challenger will be "The Groundbreaker" Ezra Jax in a bout which is set for WrestleTopia.
Not only that, but a 10-man battle royal will also be held on the same night with the winner receiving an opportunity at the International Champion the following Wednesday on the premiere of HWE ShowDown. Prince, Maari, EGP will get a second swing at the title as they've been confirmed for the bout, along with Chris Jackson, Silas Sullivan, Ozerov, Cody Olson, Adam Stark, Orlando Young and Sanchez.
With that, all four HWE champions have been crowned and a plethora of must-see matches have been announced for WrestleTopia. Stay tuned to TheHWE.com as more information on HWE's inaugural televised event becomes available.
