If you've watched a full show of Apex Road, you would have seen or would have been notified of a group of three men who currently is a destructive force in the Pinnacle Combat roster. These three men are to be known as the Shinjiketo. The three men are KENTA, Yoshi Tatsu and Goto. These men have ambushed the big names such as Matt Hardy, Paul London and the Motor City Machine Guns. These three men have not told their purpose for forming their group but this did not stop the Pinnacle Combat roster from fighting back. The first time the Shinjiketo were seen together were post-match for KENTA vs Paul London on Apex Road 1. Paul London was already bloodied from the encounter. Yoshi Tatsu and Goto appeared to be fighting against KENTA until they helped KENTA in his assault on London! These men did not only go after the crowd favorites. Just a couple weeks ago, what started out as a unintentional bump from Adam Cole to Goto turned into a drenching humiliation. The Shinjiketo ambushed Cole and poured, what was to be soda, onto him. This was just the start of the Shinjiketo's actions. Fortunately, three men are going to war with this destructive three-man crew: Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin and Paul London.
Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley were available for comment. “KENTA is a weakling and it showed. The Motor City Machine Guns were the true winners of both matches. They can't resort to dirty tactics in a elimination match because you can't get away with it three times. The referees aren't stupid. Goto and Tatsu are either brainwashed, scared or genuinely stupid. KENTA doesn't fight. He sends those two little targets to fight for him. Look back on our matches with him, we dominated them. All Out Assault is going to be the easiest debut PPV win ever.” emphasized Alex Shelley. “Goto is a little weasel that you can never get a good grip on to beat up, either he has a narrow escape or the other two save him. These guys are the most cowardly boys I have ever seen in my life. The Shinjiketo ends at All Out Assault. No question.” stated Chris Sabin. On a factual note, KENTA is a champion. In fact, in theory, KENTA holds the star power in the group being well known in both North America and in Japan. Yoshi Tatsu is, again in theory, more of a star in North America than in Japan. Goto, also in theory, on the contrary, is more of a star in Japan than in North America. At All Out Assault, expect a good brawl because this feud is boiling!
Highlight Fued Of The Month : Adam Cole vs John Morrison
The highlight rivalry of the month is Adam Cole vs John Morrison. This feud has been boiling since Apex Road 1. Only Cole and Morrsion know how this feud started up but none wanted to comment on how this confrontation started. The cameras caught the middle of the confrontation, Adam Cole and John Morrison were arguing about who is more attractive until they asked for a female's opinion, in this case, Britani Knight. Knight would then go on to say that John Morrison is the more attractive one and John Morrison's special prize? A super kick to the face from Adam Cole. Ever since that moment, these two have been in fierce rivalry and always try to top each other. These two finally faced each other in a ladder match on Apex Road 3! It was a great match, full of twists and turns. In fact, television division wrestler, Super Crazy inserted himself into the match. Just as Morrison won that encounter, that wasn't the end of it. The rivalry of Adam Cole and John Morrison diffused into another rivalry: Brad Maddox and Carlito's! The team of Carlito and John Morrison would go on to face Brad Maddox and Adam Cole in an elimination tornado no disqualification match and Carlito and John Morrison walked away with a victory. Some would say Morrison has the upper advantage. Some would say Adam Cole has the upper advantage. Find out if John Morrison wins the television championship at All Out Assault.
Rookie Spotlight 2013
This rookie grew up in Miami, Florida. “It was hot. It was hot. It was hot! I was at the beach all the time when I wasn't at home, my job or training.” The crowd has given this rookie quite a reaction. In fact, Joey LeBell is going to be competing for the Television Championship at All Out Assault, making him the first rookie to receive a title shot. Joey LeBell has a high-flying technique with a significant amount of chain wrestling and occasional illegal move attempts. “I wanted to become a wrestler ever since I seen Wrestlemania. You see, my uncle came over and he forced me to see Wrestlemania. When I went, I was amazed at the atmosphere of Wrestlemania.” Stated Joey LeBell. “Before working in Pinnacle Combat, I worked at Subway actually. It wasn't my cup of tea and even then I was training to become a professional wrestler. After hours, I'd only have x amount of time to train.” Joey LeBell does not have any previous family members who have a professional wrestling background. When Susan Brooke, head interviewer, asked Joey LeBell's thoughts on his chances of winning the permanent contract he responded, “I'm not worried about losing. I'm not worried about my competition. I'm not worried about anything to do with this contract match. I know if I set my mind towards the day that I have to compete with Chris Rayne and Kytakauki. I'm Joey LeBell. The name itself oozes perfectness. Besides, look at the facts, I defeated Kytakauki to become the number one contender for the television championship. These rookies have no idea what they are dealing with.” Little known fact, Joey LeBell is also a surfer.
This potential-filled rookie was born in Toyokawa, Aichi, Japan. A very simple and generous man would be used to describe this rookie. Kytakauki did not need many items in his life to be happy according to him. “Toyokawa is so rich in culture, history and agriculture. Plus it was not so big...about the same amount of people in Tallahassee. But the city was different, little crime. Everyone practically was a friend. It was like a caged town. Everything was and is the same as I grew up...I wanted to be a wrestler because I love the sport. I actually used to compete in local amateur wrestling competitions in the United States and puroresu-like wrestling matches in Japan. I have a competitve attitude compressed in me.” Kytakauki's wrestling style is very slow paced and with hard-hitting, big impact moves. He lost his debut tv match to rookie Joey LeBell but don't expect that to be the last of Kytakauki. He will be competing in more matches later that day. Before wrestling, he used to farm like his father and brothers. His older brother has professional background experience. Kytakauki is also married to America-born, Natalie Wright. When Susan Brooke asked Kytakauki about his thoughts on his chances of winning the contract at The Settlement in April, he responded, “I think the others deserve it as much as I do. When I get into that ring in April, its either me or them. I don't have to be pinned to lose either. All I know is at The Settlement, no one is walking about without the bruises to show that they faced a man who wants that contract more than anything else.”
Many people start to recognize him as the sister of Ashley Cabot, better known as Madison Rayne. Little known fact, Madison Rayne does work in Pinnacle Combat as Miss Gorgeous. Chris Rayne is also a rookie in Pinnacle Combat who wasn't afraid to give his story. “At fifteen, I had to support for my older sister and my mother because my father was arrested for domestic abuse. It was hard living on the poverty side of Ohio, especially when it got cold. I worked four jobs throughout my teen years: a lumberjack, a convenience store cashier, an occasional furniture mover and a professional wrestler. In those teen years, I even risked my health and life in bare-knuckle underground brawls for grocery money. This built the character that I am.” Chris Rayne is more of a brawler than a technical type of person and he doesn't have any family members who were in the professional wrestling industry. “I came into wrestling because I wanted to wrestle alongside my sister. Plus I get paid to bash skulls.” Comically said by Rayne. We (the interviewing team) asked the locker room about the potential in Chris Rayne and Matt Hardy would say, “This man is strictly business. There is no way that Pinnacle Combat will be overlooking him. He may look like an average Joe but he is not even close. Trust me, Chris Rayne will be big.” When we asked Rayne on his comments on his match at The Settlement, he replied “There is nothing that I want more then this contract. Nothing. I am happy with my current life. My home. My family. That contract bonds everything. Without that contract, its back on a job search. If you think what I did to Sin Cara was bad, then you haven't seen nothing yet.”

Who says the general manager's position is easy? Sure, with all the creative power and air time you'd think that being a general manager is a dream. Not here. Not in Pinnacle Combat : Apex Road. After the fatal four way number one contendership main event that took place on Apex Road 2 which consisted of JTG, KENTA, Jack Swagger and Paul London, the cameras abruptly cut to two masked en ambushing Tazz, throwing him into a car and driving away. No one knows who these masked men are but one thing is for sure, they will be at All Out Assault! “I do think that we should rescue Tazz but his absence hasn't disrupted the flow of Apex Road...or at least not too much.” stated Todd Grisham. “I just liked being GM.” Comically said by Matt Hardy, former temporary general manager. Dustin Hart, chairman, was not available to comment but we can assure you that based on his emotion on television, his actions on Apex Road and the situation supported off of empathy, Hart is outraged with what has happened on Apex Road 2. Rumors say that the masked men were recently working for other highly popular promotions in the wrestling industry. The masked men did not say that they are going to unmask but the Pinnacle Combat's hub of social networking says otherwise. Some have gone on to say that someone will try to unmask him. Where is Tazz now? No one knows. He is in an anonymous location. The purpose of Tazz's abduction, according to the two masked men, is for the two masked men to hear Hart out. The men did not reveal the offer but whatever it is, a simple no will not end it there. Tune into All Out Assault to find out who these men are and their demands.
