MLW Embedded #2: Alicia Atout’s Exclusive Report On CONTRA UNIT
CONTRA Unit’s first appearance in MLW began with an assault, felt around the world. Chaos and riots broke out wherever their brand of violence broke out. Nobody was safe, nobody was above attack. After Jacob Fatu won the World Heavyweight Championship, beginning the longest reign in league history, CONTRA occupied MLW. And it seemed they were unstoppable, until Alex Hammerstone led a rebellion to take the company back. After defeating Fatu to end the longest world title reign in league history, there was only one place to settle the blood feud, War Chamber. The war began as many expected it would, with CONTRA exhibiting military precision as they systematically dismantled the MLW team. But the seeds of their destruction have already been sowed by a new force in MLW, Cesar Duran.
The league’s new matchmaker managed to destroy the organization with whispers and words. Why? I think it’s because CONTRA was the greatest threat to his power and now nothing stands in Cesar Duran’s way. But what of the members of CONTRA Unit? Where are they now? Details are scarce. Mads Krugger has been spotted in the fighting pits of South Africa and has sworn vengeance against the apostate Jacob Fatu. Ikuro Kwan renounced CONTRA and has been seen in Japan where he is training with MLW Middleweight Champion, Tajiri. The longest reigning MLW World Heavyweight Champion in history, Jacob Fatu is AWOL, no one has seen or heard from him since he walked out of the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia. And as for Joseph Samael, he vanished before War Chamber and hasn’t been seen since. Some speculate that the timing of his disappearance may have been intentional.
