Frightmare, Hallowicked, Missile Assault Man, & Lucas Calhoun defeated Oleg The Usurper, Kobald, and The Batiri (w/ Ultramantis Black). Calhoun was busted open pretty bad during the match, but kept going after getting cleaned up. Before heading to the back, Hallowicked and Frightmare attacked Ultramantis and put the Eye of Tyr around his neck. After feeling the power of the mysterious item, the maniacal insectoid overlord proclaimed, “My spear. My broadsword. Return me home.” It seems that Nazmaldun has possessed Ultramantis Black’s body and now walks among us.
