This wasn’t supposed to happen.

Our resident commentator and British Wrestling blogger Rob Halden returns with his latest thoughts on Cyanide and FutureShock.

This wasn’t supposed to happen.
When FutureShock Wrestling Reloaded 6 ended two weeks ago, Cyanide found himself facing down a brand new threat. Brand new opposition. Something that he had never anticipated. Zack Gibson standing shoulder-to-shoulder and back-to-back with James Drake and Ashton Smith. This wasn’t supposed to happen.

Since the 400 pound Colossus of FutureShock Wrestling returned and donned his dehumanising mask, he’s been a dominating and destructive force unlike any we’ve seen before. With Noah & Grodd by his side, Cyanide has toppled everyone and anyone in FutureShock. He locked himself on a collision course for the Heavyweight Championship. He battered every top contender. He beat the hell out of Ashton Smith. Uproar 100 was going to be his crowning glory. Everyone thought it was a foregone conclusion. Cyanide was going to wipe out Ashton just like he did to everyone else.

But then Ashton Smith fought back. Then Ashton Smith lifted 400 pounds and slammed him in the Stockport Town Hall. Then Ashton Smith pinned Cyanide in the middle of the ring and kept the title.

This wasn’t supposed to happen.

A chink had now appeared in the armour. Cyanide wasn’t invulnerable. The beast tried to re-group at Reloaded 6. He hammered and battered James Drake, using Noah & Grodd to help him get the win. But Cyanide wasn’t done. He wasn’t satisfied. He wasn’t finished. Along with his twisted soldiers, he made sure to ruin the main event of Reloaded. He made sure to ruin the biggest re-match in FutureShock history. He made sure that Ashton Smith didn’t lose the championship before their scheduled Mask Vs. Title match at this year’s Anniversary Show.

But in the process, Cyanide cost Zack Gibson the match. Cyanide cost Zack Gibson the biggest re-match in FutureShock history. Cyanide cost Zack Gibson the Heavyweight Title.

Smith, Drake & Gibson – united against Cyanide
What happened next will sure play out in highlight reels for years to come. Surrounded in the ring, Gibson, the once Tyrant of FutureShock, stood back-to-back with his hated rivals Drake and Smith. Gibson took the microphone and for the first time in forever, the Faithful let him speak! Gibson let Cyanide know that he had just made a very dangerous enemy. Gibson said that FutureShock Tapped he would stand side-by-side with James Drake and Ashton Smith.

Liverpool’s #1 – Mr. Mayhem – Manchester’s #1 – on the same damn side! All because of Cyanide’s rash actions.

This wasn’t supposed to happen.
