The new HWE International Champion Elijah Davenport will kick off the premiere episode of HWE ShowDown tonight, TheHWE.com has learned.
Davenport captured the title from Ezra Jax at HWE WrestleTopia this past Sunday, but not without a little help from his wife, Dakota. Although it seemed Jax had the match in hand after a devastating spear, Dakota proved her use when she put her husband's foot on the bottom rope.
That was enough to keep Davenport in the game, and eventually, he'd hit The Groundbreaker with his signature Changing of the Guard to clinch the International Championship, becoming only the second man to do so.
Earlier in the night, Chris Jackson outlasted five other Originals in a chaotic Six-Pack Challenge to earn an opportunity at Davenport and the title. The Hunter has yet to name the date for his title match, but one has to think he'll opt for sooner rather than later.
What will the Crown Prince have to say when he opens the premiere episode of ShowDown? Will Ezra Jax have any response after the way their match went down? And what will Chris Jackson's involvement be in the situation? Tune in tonight exclusively on HWE Network to find out.
