In a shocking turn of events this past Saturday Night in Harpers Ferry, WV, we have two new members of SIN in Jordan Evans and Bill Bain. It all went down right before the intermission of WDWA Deliverance, as Doug Rafferty successfully recruited the two to join his rouge stable, to which they obliged. For two months, S.I.N has looked to rebound after Shane Malice not only left the group, but defeated two of its key members en route to winning the Holy Grail Cup. With the new additions this past weekend, it appears as if they have started that process.
Jordan Evans went into a match with S.I.N member David Hetfield this past weekend and despite putting up an impressive showing, came up short in the contest. However, after the contest is where things get interesting. Doug Rafferty gets into the ring and immediately offers Evans a spot as a member of S.I.N. Just before Evans could accept, his close ally Bill Bain rushed to the ring and looked to try to convince Evans not to join. In a tense standoff, Jordan Evans ultimately joins the group and the three men turn to Bill Bain as they were going to attack the area mainstay. Before anything goes down, a smiling Bill Bain exclaims “Oh you know I’m joining too” and hugs all 3 members of S.I.N. before leaving the ring together.
The night was far from over for the group. Later in the evening, Bain was scheduled to face “Triple Fears” Kevin Mears in a match that would have huge implications on the WDWA Championship picture. The two men brawled from pillar to post, going so far as to break the ring in the process. Just as Mears locked Bain into a submission hold that would have no doubt garnered him a victory, Doug Rafferty threw powder in his eyes, causing a disqualification in the process. Rafferty and Bain were showered with boos by the irate fans in attendance. Some even tried to attack Rafferty as he attempted to head to the locker room area. Despite the shocking turn of events, the group was not finished yet.
Later in the evening Shane Malice defeated Ishman Martinez in the main event of the evening… and Doug Rafferty was not finished recruiting new members yet. After the conclusion of the contest, Rafferty offered Martinez a spot in S.I.N, to which he declined. Needless to say, that did not go over well as Bill Bain then attacked Ishman Martinez from behind and challenged him to a match in Berkeley Spings this coming weekend. A HAIR match. If Ishman Martinez loses this weekend he must shave his hair.
S.I.N is looking to run roughshod over its competition with their new acquisitions when they return to the Rankins Physical Therapy Center this Saturday Night. Will they be successful?

This Saturday night in Harpers Ferry, the 1st Annual Holy Grail Tournament Champion: “The King of the North” Shane Malice continues his journey towards the WDWA Heavyweight Championship when he faces area standout Bill Bain in the main event “Deliverance.” For the second month in a row, Malice will be put to the test against one of the best talents in the area as he climbs his way back to championship contention.
Malice overcame incredible odds in January, defeating two of his fellow S.I.N members before defecting from the group and then defeating “The Hawaiian Warrior” Kekoa in the tournament finals. This tournament win came after a long losing streak and a 30 day suspension that started in early December, resurrecting his WDWA career. In the month following the tournament, Malice took another area standout Sicend to his limit before the contest was interrupted by members of S.I.N, resulting in a no-contest. While the presence of S.I.N has to be in the back of Shane’s mind, his focus must be on his next opponent.
Bill Bain is no stranger to fans in the Eastern Panhandle. Over the last 12 years, Bain has been a force to be reckoned with in the area, regularly main-eventing regional cards in addition to holding championships. Bain is no stranger to gold in WDWA, which is why this match is so important. A win for Bill Bain over the Holy Grail Tournament winner could have huge implications on the WDWA title picture. A loss for Shane Malice in this situation could set him back months on his journey to the WDWA Heavyweight Title. Gaining a win over someone with the experience of Bill Bain will be no easy task. Not only is Bain a talented competitor, but he has a notorious reputation for being one of the smartest and most underhanded competitors in the region. This combined with the fact that S.I.N will no doubt have their eyes on this matchup means that Shane Malice will no doubt have the odds stacked against him come Saturday night.

On February 9th, Shane Malice stepped in to the Rankins Physical Therapy Center for the first time in a very long time as his own man. For those who haven’t been following WDWA for at least the last year, the man known as “The King of the North” had been a key member of a group that has run roughshod over WDWA: S.I.N. After the events that unfolded in January at the Holy Grail Tournament, it was safe to say that he bid that faction farewell. After the conclusion of his match with Sicend at Absolution, it was clear that the group did not take kindly to being publicly spurned by anyone. Both Sicend and Malice were attacked by members of S.I.N, resulting in a no-contest bout on what should have been an excellent matchup between two great competitors. Those of you who haven’t been following are probably asking yourself: How did things get to this point.
It all starts in early December in Harpers Ferry, WV. Shane Malice, mired in a bit of a losing streak enters another contest being accompanied to the ring by obviously frustrated members of S.I.N. You could hear the voices of disappointment at ringside anytime his opponent would get the upper hand. “You’re a former champion,” “What the hell is wrong with you,” the group’s members would shout. In the end, it was another loss for Malice. But, things were about to get a bit worse for The King of the North. WDWA Commissioner Latin Tornado announced immediately after the match that Shane Malice was being sent home for 30 days as a result of his most recent loss. “We hold our performers to high standards. If you can’t win matches, then you don’t belong here,” said LT. “We were originally going to let him go completely, but I know the Shane Malice was capable of more than what he recently displayed, so I gave him 30 days to recharge,” he later added.
“I’ll be honest, the suspension hit me like a ton of bricks,” said Malice when we contacted him a few weeks ago via telephone. “I understand that I had not been performing well, but that suspension made me do some serious soul searching to figure out how to come back strong.” We were told by several WDWA officials that the suspension may have been longer had it not been for one thing. That one thing was that Shane Malice was guaranteed a spot in the Holy Grail Tournament in January as a result of being a title holder in 2018. “That tournament was my only real shot at redemption. With my recent track record, I knew that winning the whole thing would be a longshot. I at least wanted to make my mark and proved that I belonged in this promotion,” Malice said. “I knew if I didn’t advance to the 2nd round at the very least, I would be gone from WDWA. That entire 30 days, I trained like a madman to ensure that defeat was not in the cards. Physically, I was prepared as ever. I was not prepared for what I would face mentally that day.”
What Shane is referring to is his first round opponent, then fellow S.I.N member Killian McMurphy. While the contest was a fantastic one to open the tournament, members of S.I.N interfered continually on McMurphy’s behalf. Despite all of that, a confused Shane Malice pulled out a win to advance to the 2nd round of the tournament. His 2nd round opponent was yet, another member of S.I.N, Gavon Jaxon. While McMurphy was willing to compete with Malice, Jaxon had other plans. His plan was to simply demand that Malice lay down for him and allow him to advance to the finals of the tournament, rested and ready to compete. In the most difficult decision that he had to face that night, Malice ultimately decided to compete, defeating Jaxon with 3 vicious knees to the skull. No matter what else happened that night, Shane Malice proved that he belonged back in WDWA. But….. the night was not over quite yet. There was still one more match on the table for the King of the North: the tournament finals against one of the best competitors in WDWA today, The Hawaiian Warrior: Kekoa.
“I’d be lying if I said that I knew I was going to win the tournament at that point,” said Malice who described himself as being physically spent after the first two contests. When we spoke with Kekoa, he seemed pretty sure of his chances going in to the finals. “Coming back from a long losing streak and a month layoff to winning 3 matches in a night is hard to do, so I thought my chances were pretty strong to win,” he said. Make no mistake, Shane’s a great competitor, but after everything he had already gone through that night, my odds were strong. As fate would have it, not strong enough.”
It was an amazing back and forth match, with both men giving it their best. In the end, The King of the North added another title to his collection: Holy Grail Tournament Champion. After the match, the entire locker room congratulated him as both the fans in Berkeley Springs and his daughter at ringside stood and cheered in adulation for a man who overcame incredible odds to not only save his spot, but ascended back to the top of WDWA. Now, the mission is clear for Malice. “In 2019, I plan to rid WDWA of the group that almost cost me my career in S.I.N, but to once again become WDWA Champion. This year, I plan on testing myself against the very best competition possible to back up the claim that I am the best this company has to offer.
His next test is on March 2nd, when he faces area standout Bill Bain in Harpers Ferry, WV. Can Shane Malice continue his road to the WDWA Championship? Be there in person to find out. Click the link below to purchase tickets.
