At BeachBrawl we will see The Misfit vs Austin Knight for the VWE World Heavyweight championship. A match some of former managements would say should never happen. This article we will be giving a side by side review of how these two made it up to this point. Both crossing paths more than once finally come to ahead.
Back during Overdrive, the world was shocked as the man everyone thought had power Rainbow Falcon fired The Misfit calling him unstable and seeming to end the career for Misfit in the VWE. During this time Austin Knight also shocked the world as he turned his back on Diamond Club’s newest member Nyle Nightfire costing him the world heavyweight title on purpose. Wouldn’t take long to show Austin’s true colors wanting to hold that title in Diamond Club himself instead of a team mate.
As the truth was revealed and Falcon had no power in the VWE, Diamond Club lead by Austin Knight went on charging against the VWE to try to take complete control of the VWE starting off with enlisting the assistance of, soon to be official member of Diamond Club, Dimitri Volkov and forming an alliance with Skillex promising him if he help they make sure he get a shot for the VWE World Heavyweight Championship. Shortly after Drake Edwards, another member that joined Diamond Club, issued an open challenge which Misfit appeared wanting to fight only for it to be revealed that it was a trap to bring Misfit out of hiding for Austin Knight to have a talk with him. Austin wanted to enlist The Misfit into the ranks of The Diamond Club in this seemingly Civil War within the VWE ranks. VWE, Team Pulse, and Diamond Club tried for weeks to enlist The Misfit knowing he would be a strong team mate during the final battles of this war. Come Versus the world watched as The Misfit appeared to side with team VWE and with Night’s help during the big triple team match eliminated Nitro Kyx, Bray, Adune (With Night’s help). During the final moments Dimitri sacrificed his spot in the match to inflict extra damage on Misfit for Skillex to come in and pick up the scraps, winning the match for Diamond Club. When Misfit came up short, he had to watch later that night as Austin Knight struck big, beating Michael Karsin and Nyle Nightfire in the main event capturing the VWE World Heavyweight Championship and Diamond Club with alliance members joining in the ring to celebrate.
The celebration for Diamond Club was short-lived as The New VWE Chairman, Seth Cameron, announced that at Proving Grounds there will be a triple threat match to determine Austin’s number one contender for Beach Brawl, Skillex vs Ren Blackheart vs The Misfit. Diamond Club, in the mist of helping Drake on his campaign to claim the US Title, attacked Wrex Ocelot and Ren Blackheart, their plans backfired. The Misfit appeared chasing off Austin and Drake but was able to send a statement to Diamond Club hitting Benja with his signature kendo stick wrapped in barbed wire and also hitting him with the mist. Austin had to watch as The Misfit was able to beat the odds against Ren and Skillex to claim his shot at Austin. It was finally set, Austin Knight had to fight The Misfit alone.
