Those in the know, were more than a little excited about the pending debut of TMDK International. With the past accomplishments of Shane Haste and Mikey Nichols in their previous runs in Southern California, the expectations were set very high for the duo. However Haste and Nichols delivered on every expectation when they entered the Glendale Studios in front the NWA Hollywood crowd. Unfortunately the initial reaction TMDK got was a little less than stellar. But that changed the moment they entered the ring. With lightning quick maneuvers and very hard hitting action, Nichols and Haste quickly galvanized the fan base in Hollywood.
Two obstacles placed in front of them their match up with H.E.D.and the duo of Josh Lazay and Leo Blaze and the matches ended with the same result. A blur of motion, bodies flying everywhere, and TMDK victorious. Much like I had anticipated TMDK was most impressive, with two victories in the television taping over I think they did all they can to earn a Heritage Tag Team Title shot when they return.
