A quick question regarding the tag title back in 99 - what was the story behind Zandig and Nick Gage becoming tag team champions? As I understand it The King Pinz became the champs at Street Fight 99 where Zandig was facing Nick Gage - then at Down in Flames Zandig and Gage teamed up and were billed as the champions - what was the given story for them being the tag champs? Then Lobo and TCK beating Gage and Pain for the belts at Pain in the Rain seemed confusing as well - anyone have any info on this?
I don't really know any story around it, but it was probably a business disagreement. The company was just starting up so John probably felt it unnecessary to explain it. From what I can find they only had two matches in CZW. The one where they won the titles, and one in November '99 vs. The Haas Brothers.
I'm guessing that's what they're running/will run off of. But to be fair after that match they did hug and have that moment and whatnot. Although I guess Drew would be the logical replacement for Drake in terms of deathmatches because of Moore taking his career. I can see the COD this year being NOI/ND, curious as to who the third guy for the Dragons would be though considering Drake probably won't do it.
