The rookie tandem of Bodhi and Byron, the McKenzie Brothers, have their work cut out for them at State of Origin on August 30th as they tackle the veteran duo of Tyler Jacobs and Devlin Reeves, collectively known as the Headhunters.
Making their EPW returns at Evolution, Jacobs and Reeves made an intimidate impact by attacking McMassive’s Gavin McGavin and Mike Massive during the evening’s raffle draw. The pair would also go on to make their presence felt later that night following the EPW Championship Match between then champion ‘The Smashing Machine’ Chris Vice and ‘The Behemoth’ Sebastian Sander joining the Behemoth in a beat down on Vice.
During the tag team eliminator at Hell or Highwater, the former 2 time EPW and 3 time Tag Team Champion, Jacobs would interject himself into the contest, causing McMassive to lose their bout against the then champions TMDK. The Headhunters are intent on taking scalps and moving up the ladder of the Tag Team division.
The Margaret River siblings recently made their main show debut as a team at Hell or Highwater in the aforementioned Tag Team Eliminator. The brothers would be left laid out by the Dropkicks, who would be disqualified for their actions. This left the McKenzie’s easy prey for the next team entering the contest and were quickly eliminated by the team of Jamie Jurah and ‘The Don’ Michael Morleone. The enthusiastic youngsters will be looking to prove they can stand toe-to-toe with two of EPW’s most experienced competitors.
Will the grizzled veterans wipe the rookies out or will the brothers over come the odds and ride a wave to an upset victory? Find out when Explosive Pro Wrestling presents State of Origin on August 30th at Bodyslam Central (Cyril Jackson Rec Centre) in Bassendean.
