Cesaro signs on the dotted line, Heenan not happy

"The Arrival of the Combat Zone" special saw the unexpected turn of events, wherein Cesaro and Hart was officially signed for Divide and Conquer in a 30-minute Ironman Match, per Hart's original request.  

The contract signing was kicked off with introductions of Cesaro (who came with Bobby Heenan) and Bret "Hitman" Hart.  Heenan immediately took the microphone and presented the contract that was drawn up by his lawyers.  

"Ladies and gentlemen, you will witness a contest never before seen.  A contest you never thought possible.  The contest where you will witness the demise of the self-proclaimed best there is, was, and ever will be.  The contest where you will be bare witness to the RISE OF CESARO," Heenan began as he opened the contract and presented it to Bret Hart.

"This contract states that Bret "Hitman" Hart, you, will go 1-on-1 with the Swiss Superman and future Hall of Famer Antonio Cesaro.  It is a standard rules contest, 1 fall to a finish, 10-count, time limit of 20 minutes.  Now, let's make this quick, sign on the dotted line, Mr. Big Shot, and let's see if you have what it takes to take on my client!"  Heenan says he presents Bret Hart with a pen.

Bret smirks and reaches into a duffel bag he brought on stage and presents another stapled stack of papers.  Bret announces that he has brought his own contract to the table, which Heenan immediately rejects, as he looks towards Johnny Musa.

"Mr. Musa, this is not what we agreed to," Heenan exclaimed.  "As the agreement states, this event will simply be a contract signing for the agreed upon terms listed in the contract my lawyers had drawn up.  This is unprofessional, illegal, and quite frankly, rude!"

"Heenan!  Shut up!"  Hart shouts as he stands, prompting Cesaro to stand as well.  "Look, I'm not going to lie to you.  I want this match bad enough that I'll sign any paper to get you in the ring.  But, I'm giving you one last chance.  This contract has all of the same details that yours does, but it was one difference.  This contract, my contract, makes this match legendary.  It makes this match a 30-minute Ironman Match."

The crowd pops as Hart continues, "You don't just get to pin me once and say you're the best.  You're going to have to beat me at my own game and PUT ME DOWN FOR GOOD to take my spot.  So, what do ya say, Cesaro?  Because if you won't sign this, then I can only assume it's because you know you can't win - and if you think you can't win already, don't even sign this contract and get yourself another opponent.  Because if you can't sign this - then you're not the man I thought you were, and you aren't worth my damn time"

The crowd stirs as Cesaro and Hart share in a staredown that seems to last minutes.  Heenan quickly interjects.

"Oh no no no.  You think you're smart, don't ya?  Not happening.  You will not throw such accusations our way, you'll be hearing from our lawyers.  And, boy, I hope you can pay for a defense - because you've officially LOST any chance of facing my client Cesaro at DIVIDE & CONQUER - so that pay check Combat Entertainment writes you is going to be a lot thinner with a lesser opponent.  And, brother, let me tell you - if you're going to fight MY lawyers, you're going to need the most expensive lawyers in the world.  You're going to need someone better than Johnny Cochran to..."

The microphone is suddenly snatched from Heenan by his client, who stares at Bret Hart intently and speaks very firmly.

"I don't fear you," Cesaro says sharply.  "I fear what I can do to you.  These people's impression of me, and your impression of me, is only because I've spent years playing nice with a company I have no respect for.  You don't see the what I really am.  I'm not just a good looking man in a suit, and I'm not just a superior athlete.  I'm the future of this business.  And I fear what I could do to your entire body with 30 minutes to spare."

He pauses briefly, and looks over Bret Hart's contract.  "...but I'm not going to be playing nicely with you, anymore.  You want to be tortured for 30 minutes...I'll be happy to oblige."

Cesaro signs the contract soon therafter to a huge ovation from the crowd.  As Cesaro turns to face Heenan, Heenan's mouth is agape, as he mutters to Cesaro, "This isn't how it was supposed to go.  This was a mistake, he suckered you in.  Don't worry, I can fight this.  I can fight this."  Cesaro pats Heenan on the shoulder and whispers back, "Don't worry, he has no idea what I have in store."

Weekly Rewind
  • 30 Minute Ironman Match - Cesaro vs. Bret Hart has been officially signed for Divide & Conquer
  • Combat Entertainment announced that the next conference after the HBO special will include the announcement of a Tag Team Bout for the Divide & Conquer event.
  • An ECW Dream Match was confirmed at the HBO Sports special for the Combat Zone - Rob Van Dam will face Mike Awesome.  CE confirmed the match will be contested under Extreme Rules.
  • Mike Awesome is expected to be at the next CE press conference.
  • Plans for John Cena are up in the air - it seems like CE was hinting at a Hogan/Cena bout, but that doesn't seem to be the direction Minoru Suzuki wants things to go.  Cena has yet to comment after the brutal assault in New York.
  • Another planned bout that is up in the air is for Neville.  Neville made it clear that he does not want just any opponent - but wants someone "worthy".  Neville turned down a match offer with RVD and with Hogan - so who is worthy of Neville if not those two?  CE CEO Johnny Musa has yet to comment on the matter.  The last few draft picks may reveal the plan for Neville.

Austin and Goldberg speak out in candid showdown

Combat Entertainment's first HBO Special concluded with a heated showdown between Bill Goldberg and Stone Cold Steve Austin.  The confrontation was not held in person, in fear of what level of violence the two may inflict on one another, but was rather held via satelitte.  A true gesture to the old school, the two Monday Night War generals squared off in what was seen as one of the most candid verbal tirades ever witnessed between two performers.

The interview, hosted by HBO correspondents, started with some softer questions about the two facing one another and how it felt to finally face off against the other.  However, it quickly broke down into a shouting match wherein both men disregarded the other's accolades as being worthless.  It started, as expected, with Austin throwing the first jabs.

When asked how he felt about finally facing Goldberg, Austin curled a lip and responded.

"To be honest with ya, I'm pissed off," Austin proclaimed, "What you're looking at is THE hottest damn superstar in the world today, and you got him fightin' this sorry son of a bitch who couldn't even lace my boots."

Goldberg interjected, "You think so, Austin?  Why don't you go and ask some of the boys I've put down in WCW, see what they have to say?"

Austin curled a lip, "First of all, son, don't interrupt me or I'll knock the silly looking goatee off your damn face.  Second of all, sure, I'll go ask him.  Can ya give me a ride to the retirement home?  Because I'll have seen you do since ya came up in this business is beat down the god damned geriatric foundation.  Oh, you beat Hogan, you beat Savage, you beat Diamond Dallas Page -- good job, son, you just beat down the 2nd and 3rd floor of the Ted Turner Nursing home!"

Goldberg, "And what have you done, Austin?  Huh?  You beat up some punks who never had a challenge in their damn life.  Hunter?  Rock?  Give me a damn break, if I came rolling into your neck of the woods, their be a lot of broken bodies left in my wake."

"You think so?" Austin said.  "Because the only broken bodies you've ever seen were the ones broken by the time they got to the ring.  Give me a god damn break, son.  You haven't beaten anyone in their prime.  You beat a bunch of old hags who Stone Cold Steve Austin beat the piss outta when they were GOOD."

"Last I heard, you ran from Hulk Hogan, son.  You ran to ECW and talked smack in a space you were safe.  Big man, real big man," Goldberg quipped.

"Ran my ass, your boss Eric Bischoff ran my ass out because he got scared that I'd beat up his precious little Hulkster," Austin sharply retorted.

"And your boys over in New York were too scared to take a guy from the NFL who they KNEW would rip their poster boy from Texas a new assh**le," Goldberg shouted.  

"Nah, son, they knew they were going to get a whole lotta sizzle with no steak," Austin replied.  "You can sit there and tell everyone in the world that you're the big bad dog in the yard, but your bark ain't as big as your bite.  You got the bark of a Dobberman, and the balls of a Chihuahua!"

"Talking about balls, Austin?" Goldberg asked.  "You got BIG grapefruits, boy, to take a chair and blast me from behind.  How'd it feel knowing you threw your best shot at me and couldn't take me down?  How'd it feel knowing that no matter what the hell you throw at me, you don't have a chance in hell of taking me down?  I ain't your wife, Steve - I can take a punch..."

Things took a personal turn real quick after that...

"Take a punch?" Austin shouts.  "Son, you're fixin' to take more than a punch.  The way you're talkin', I'll take my damn rifle to that ring and put a slug six inches deep into your head.  You wanna talk big, you better get ready to fight big - because you done crossed a line that ain't nobody ever came back from.  Let me give ya a reality check, boy..."

"The only damn reason you were on top in WCW ain't just because you been fighting geriatrics for your entire career, it's because you been working the look that Stone Cold created.  Black tights, black boots, bald head, goatee - you're a poor man's excuse for Steve Austin.  You been ridin' my name for too damn long - it's about time to meet me head to head and see if you got the damn balls to face THE TOUGHEST SON OF A BITCH!"

The verbal assaults continued throughout the segment, until order was finally restored.  In the closing statements, Goldberg dared Austin to bring anything and everything - but to be prepared for something even worse.  Austin sharply responded, "Son, in a few weeks, you best kiss your wife goodbye, because she ain't never gonna be able to look at life in your eyes, again."

THE ORIGINAL SUPERSTAR CHALLENGES THE IMMORTAL

Combat Entertainment's YouTube channel recently posted a video announcing one of their largest signings to the roster - "Superstar" Billy Graham.  HBO Correspondent Al Richland sat down with the "Superstar" Billy Graham, who is making his first appearance at the Ticket Wars series, to discuss his debut to the grand prix and his mission entering the Combat Zone.

"It's real simple, jack," Graham started.  "This ticket wars deal has been mediocre and lacking a real champion, a real star.  That, baby, is what you get when you bring on "Superstar" Billy Graham.  You get the reflection of perfection, the number one selection.  I float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.  There's nobody as beautiful or as powerful as me.  I'm the total package, baby."

When asked what made his appearance so delayed in the Ticket Wars game, Graham responded.

"They weren't ready for me, baby.  When you're presented with a vision of beauty, power, and prestige like "Superstar" Billy Graham, you gotta be prepared to handle all of that god-like glory.  You gotta bring the fine wine.  You gotta bring the personal dressing room.  You gotta spend money to make money.  And trust me, I may be the priciest slab of meat on the market, but I'm also the most delectable taste you'll ever have," Graham emphatically exclaimed. 

"The Combat Zone, and nobody else, was ready for the Original Superstar - the man who created the word Superstar.  The man whose picture remains etched next to the word Superstar in the dictionary - because this man is exactly what a superstar should be.  Unfortunately, daddy, their ain't been one man who could match up the expectations set by the man of the hour, the man with all the power, too sweet to be sour "Superstar" Billy Graham."

When asked what his mission in the Combat Zone would be, Graham made it very clear.

"Well, baby, you see - when you're like me, there's a lot of copycats.  Often impersonated, but never duplicated.  You can wear the Superstar gear, you can dye your hair the Superstar blonde, and you can lift weights to be like the Superstar - but you ain't never gonna get anywhere close to the sensation of the nation, because he's the number-one creation," Graham stated.  "But there's one man whose been claiming he's the top draw in professional wrestling, that he's the icon of that ring, and that he's....Immortal."

"I got news for ya, this man ain't Immortal.  He just never faced me."

"Hulk Hogan, you were a big man in a little pond.  But the Superstar, he's a god amongst men.  And I don't blame you for trying to take the Superstar swag and call it your own.  If I were you, and you were me, I would do the same thing.  But I got news for ya, daddy, you can pretend to be me for as long as you can hold onto those ten threads of hair left on your head, but you ain't ever gonna be me," Superstar states as he looks towards the camera.

"So, let's put you to the test, baby.  Let's see if you can lay claim to being Immortal and face the man who lifts barbell plates, eats T-Bone steaks, whose sweeter than German Chocolate Cake. - how much more can you take?!"  Graham asks rhetorically.  "Divide & Conquer - you and I, let's get this bad boy official.  You can rally the Hulkamaniacs, but, baby, the WORLD answers to the Superstar.  And what YOU gonna do when the Superstar comes down on you?!"

Combat Entertainment, nor Hulk Hogan, has commented since the interview was posted.

Yahoo Sports JPN recently caught up with Minoru Suzuki, as he returned from his flight from New York to Japan.  Suzuki was callous in his comments towards his actions against John Cena, poking fun at the situation.  "Do you think he knows who I am now?"  Suzuki coyly asked reporters, who rained questions onto Suzuki regarding his attack.

On the "Arrival of the Combat Zone" press conference, it seemed that the company was poised to set up a John Cena vs. Hulk Hogan dream bout when Cena approached the stage during Hogan's debut.  However, Minoru Suzuki made a surprise appearance to "introduce himself" to John Cena.  The introduction did include a handshake...but it also included a Rottweiler-like clamp down onto Cena's nose that left the decade-long icon with a broken nose and multiple deep lacerations on his face.  The brawl was finally broken up after Cena hit Suzuki with a well placed punch to the right eye.  Coincidentally, the black bruise was freshly visible on Suzuki upon his return, and questioned by reporters.

"This?" Suzuki points at his black eye.  "This is nothing.  This is what I have for breakfast every morning.  If this is the best that an American legend can throw, then the Americans better hide every one of their legends from me forever."

When asked why Suzuki attacked Cena, Suzuki responded non-chalantly, "He claimed that he didn't know who I was.  So, it is tradition in puroresu that you introduce yourself to everyone in the locker room.  Given that he's the "great" John Cena...I wanted to give him a special introduction, to make sure he would never forget my name."

Suzuki playfully looked towards reporters and asked, "Oi - do you think he will remember me now?  Do you think his doctor's will remind him when he has to get stitches removed?"  Suzuki picks at his teeth, "Or when the doctor removes a sharp edge of my tooth from his nose."

Suzuki was approached by a man in a suit and handed a folder.  Suzuki seemed please as he pulled a stack of papers from the folder and stated that while he was in New York, he asked that a contract be made.

"This contract was created to make a match between John Cena and I at Divide & Conquer," Suzuki said, looking the contract over, then promptly ripping it in half!  Suzuki stepped on the remnants of the papers and began eating some of it's pages.  When asked why, Suzuki sharply responded, "HE is a waste of MY time.  He's so delicate, like a flower.  I thought America would present me with a strong competitor.  For someone who has claimed superiority for more than 10 years, I expected the fight of my life.  But, I swear, I tasted tears in New York.  He's no challenge to me.  He's weak.  He's useless.  OI - COMBAT ZONE - I want a real opponent.  I want someone who can handle more than 5 seconds of my attacks.  I want a warrior.  Give me a warrior.  Don't give me John Cena, or I'll kill him.  Give me someone better."

Suzuki ended the impromptu conference by clearly stating, "I make this clear.  If you didn't know who I was before...you are going to have nightmares about me now."

HOGAN ACCEPTS GRAHAM'S CHALLENGE
& COMBAT ZONE ADDS STIPULATION

In an exclusive interview with Combat Zone, Hulk Hogan finally answered the challenge from "Superstar" Billy Graham.  Graham, who went on a verbal tirade against Hogan and accused him of trying to copy the Original Superstar's character, challenged Hogan to a 1-on-1 contest, a DREAM MATCH between two of the most iconic competitors of their era.   Hogan promptly responded to the question without any hesitation.

"You're on, brother!" Hogan exclaimed.  "Let me tell ya something, brother.  It takes a lot of guts to be the big man in professional wrestling, and you were there before I was.  I can't stand here, brother, and say that you didn't pave the way for a lot of people, including Hulk Hogan.  But, let's make something clear, brother.  Hulkamania wasn't copied from anything.  Hulkmania was born out of and lives because of the HULKAMANIACS, dude!"  (pointing his finger towards the camera)

"These Hulkamaniacs gave me the power.  These Hulkamaniacs gave me the strength and the courage to become Hulk Hogan, dude!  They needed a hero to stand up and fight for what's right!  They motivated me to be that hero, brother.  So when they needed the Iron Sheik to go down to America - Hulkamania ran wild.  When they needed a GIANT to be taken down to size - Hulkamania ran wild.  When they needed an arrogant millionaire Ted DiBiase to fall victim to the working man - Hulkamania ran wild."

"And at Divide & Conquer, "Superstar" Billy Graham....what YOU gonna do, brother....when Hulkamania...runs WILD...on YOU!?!?!"

Soon after Hogan's acceptance of the challenge.  CEO Johnny Musa was quick to post an exclusive video the Combat Entertainment to announce the match was official, along with an added stipulation...

"Divide & Conquer will mark the first, and possibly ONLY time, that these two giants face off 1-on-1 - and we've got to make it count.  We can't risk these egos clashing and fighting their way into a double countout or a double DQ.  There MUST be a winner!"

"That's why, I'm proud to announce, that Hulk Hogan will face "Superstar" Billy Graham...

...In a 16-foot high BLUE BARRED, OLD SCHOOL, STEEL CAGE MATCH!"

The following video was posted to Combat Entertainment's website and YouTube channel...

Cameras catch Faarooq in a backstage area seated at the "APA Office" (quite literally a circular wooden table, stained of alcohol and cigar ash, propped a few feet away from a wooden door frame with a shoddy wooden door).  Faarooq grunts frustratingly between his sip of beer as he angrily tosses his cards down, angry at the outcome of his heated came of solitaire.

Suddenly a knock on the door is heard and Faarooq turns to the door's open glass window.

"Ron, hey Ron!" Bradshaw calls, frantically knocking on the door.  "Let me in."

Faarooq pulls the cigar from his mouth, "Open the damn door, man!"

"It's locked!"  Bradshaw exclaims.

Faarooq, not recognizing the ridiculousness, simply responds, "Use your key then!"

"Oh, right," Bradshaw frantically reaches around the open doorframe (you know, on the other side that he can easily get to by taking about 5 steps to the left).  Keys suddenly drop from the doorframe and onto the otherside of the door.  Bradshaw walks around the door, picks up the keys, walks back to the other side of the door and opens to let himself "in".

"What's up?" Ron asks.

"Look, I've got some big news - bad and good," Bradshaw says excitedly as he pulls an opened envelope from his back pocket.

"Bad news and good news?  What kinda bad news?"

"Well, bad news is we don't have get to fight for a few weeks," Bradshaw says.

"A few weeks?!  That's a long damn time," Faarooq says, shaking his head in disbelief.

"I know, but I've got great news that makes it all worth while," Bradshaw says as he presents the envelope to Faarooq.  "In this envelope is a contract that I just signed on behalf of the APA.  It says that in a few weeks time, we've got the biggest fight of our lives."

"For real?  Where?  With who?"  Faarooq asks.

"One of them is my idol," Bradshaw starts.

"What about the other one?"  Faarooq continues to inquire.

"Well, he's bat s**t crazy, but that's okay!  Because we can take 'em!  I know we can!"  Bradshaw says.

"Well, out with it, who and where?"

Bradshaw frantically opens the envelope and shows the letter within.  It's a 3-page folded contract with APA vs. two other names in big bold lettering at the header of the first page.  Faarooq's eyes light up.

"You serious?"  Faarooq questions.  "I ain't never fought men like this...but it sure as hell sounds fun." 

"You're damn right.  This contract is from Combat Entertainment, the guys running that Divide & Conquer show in Madison Square Garden.  And I don't know how they did it, but they did it.  You and I get to fight two of the nastiest, hardest hitting, brutal brawlers that ever set foot on this Earth...

...well, that was until you and I showed up."

Bradshaw continues, "Because in MSG, we get to fight STAN F**KING HANSEN and BRUISER F**KING BRODY!  And not only that...it's TEXAS TORNADO RULES, Ron!  That means all hell is gonna break loose.  These two bastards ran the tag team game in Japan for years, and we get to show 'em what the new age of badass looks like."

"Well, damn, you tell me something like that and now we ain't got nothin' do to," Faarooq sighs.

"Well, you didn't let me finish.  You see, good old Bradshaw, he's a negotiator," Bradshaw proudly states as he straights his back and sniffs the air preteniously.  "And I negotiated the best deal in the history of this business.  Because not only do we get to fight two legends in a brawl to end all brawls.  Not ONLY do we get to get back in MSG.  As part of our contract, I worked out a deal that we get ONE FULL WEEK, all expenses paid....to the Penthouse Executive Club"

"Wh...what did you just say?"

"That's right," Bradshaw joyously exclaims.  "We get all expenses paid inside of the best damn gentleman's club in New York City."

"All expenses paid?" Ron inquires.

"Bar tab?"

"Yep!"

"Entrance Fees?"

"Yep!"

"And....?"

"YEP!!!"

"And they get buck naked?"

"OH YEAH!"

...Faarooq throws his beer aside, "Then what the hell we waitin' on, man?  Let's get our ass to New York!"

Without hesitation ,the APA rush out of the APA offices, but not before Bradshaw shuffles back.

"Damn it, Ron.  You forgot to lock up!"

PWInsider.com has reported that John Cena has gone dark ever since the attack from Minoru Suzuki in Madison Square Garden.  A week ago, Cena approached Hogan during a press conference, likely to challenge him at Divide & Conquer.  However, Cena's attempt was interrupted by the devious Minoru Suzuki and resulted with Suzuki biting down on the bridge of Cena's nose and causing his nose break and causing multiple lacerations on his face that required minor stitches.

Since the attack, Cena has not responded to any media outlets or the Combat Entertainment company.

When CEO Johnny Musa was asked about John Cena, he replied, "Cena's standing with Combat Entertainment is fine.  He has gone dark, but he is still contractually obligated to Combat Entertainment.  It's up to him and his people to respond to the matter regarding Minoru Suzuki."

When Musa was asked what match Cena may have at Divide & Conquer, "That's entirely up to him.  We proposed a few ideas, one of which is no longer on the table.  Hulk Hogan is facing Billy Graham in a dream steel cage match now.  We've got some great talent without matches right now and it's up to him to tell us who he's interested in facing."

When asked about the rumors about Cena wanting to be included in the main event, Musa coldly responded, "Everyone wants to be the main event."

PWInsider reached out to Cena's agent this morning, and received a canned response of, "No comment at this time."

Minoru Suzuki, who is currently without a match for Divide and Conquer, was recently asked about his status with the event at a post-show press conference for New Japan Pro Wrestling.  Suzuki, who has not kept still and continues to wrestle for other promotions, seemed intrigued by the company's recent signing of Kenta Kobashi.

"I was fine with my status, because I saw no one on their roster that would be a challenge," Suzuki scoffed.  He leaned forward slightly and flashed a sinister grin, "But then they signed Kobashi Kenta.  I have faced Kobashi before.  12 Years ago, Kobashi beat me."

He leans backward and wipes the sweat from his brow, "Normally, people would not admit defeat when it happens.  I don't fear defeat.  I become stronger from it.  12 years is a long time.  A lot can happen in 12 years and a lot can change in 12 years.  In 12 years, I have become more bitter, more blood thirsty, more vicious.  I was never a good man, but 12 years has turned me even more sour.  I am not the same man I was 12 years ago - I am more dangerous."

Suzuki smiles, "It brings me pleasure, America bringing in Kobashi.  I am finally excited for the event.  After I ate John Cena's face, and tasted the cowardice in his blood, I was becoming skeptical that the company could find me a challenge.  They proved me wrong."

He laughs maniacally, "Now, I can finally have my rematch!  I can get the opportunity to eat Kobashi's face and spit out his eyes in front of millions of people.  I can get the chance to show American's what true fighting looks like - and make them s**t themselves at the horror.  So many pleasures at once!"

Suzuki grabs a beer from the conference table and takes a large swig, "Oi - Combat Zone - you have my request.  Fulfill it - give me my rematch from 12 years ago.  Give me Kobashi.  I want Kobashi.  I want to show him just how much I have changed."

The Combat Entertainment office has yet to comment on the situation, though reports on PWInsider are claiming that the Kobashi/Suzuki clash being promoted as "12 years in the making" has come across the company's booking table a few times in the last few days.  However, there has been no official announcement to date.

New York City is about to see something EXTREME

Combat Entertainment has officially closed the Ticket Wars drafting phase of 2017/18.  In it's closing bid, Combat Entertainment, who has been drafting many legends in the 2nd half of the bid, drafted the legendary and feared originator of hardcore - The Original Sheik.

No sooner was that announcement made, then did CE officially announce the latest bout to the DIVIDE & CONQUER bout...as Uncle faces Nephew...SABU vs. THE SHEIK in a TRUE BLOOD MATCH...in a match that both men are no strangers to...

BARBED WIRE DEATHMATCH!

This will be the first time in the history of Madison Square Garden that a Barbed Wire Deathmatch has taken place.  In the match, all ring ropes will be replaced by barbed wire, weapons will surround the ring, and both men will do battle until either one is pinned, submitted, or is knocked out.  The match can also stop via referee stoppage.

This match, unlike any other, is guaranteed to spill blood and will not be for the weak at heart.  These men have never faced each other, but regularly teamed in Japan.  The two blood relatives put their respect aside to decide who truly is most hardcore, more extreme....and determine who is the KING of Violence!
