Manager

Stacy Vandervort, the EWA Executive Assistant to majority owner Alexander Haven, was outed in May 2016 as being in a relationship with Chris Kage. Since that time, Vandervort has on occasion accompanied Kage to ringside during his matches. Stacy is extremely loyal to Chris, but does not let that loyalty get in the way of conducting her duties as Executive Assistant. Stacy has recently become a target of the Stranger, Indrid Calder, in his desire to make her one of his “Projects”.

Debut Event
Entrance Music
Entrance Description

The arena goes black with a single red spotlight on the entrance way. As the music slowly builds up Kage enters the spotlight, and as the guitar enters two pyros shoot off from each side of the entrance way. He then begins his slow descent down the aisle keeping his eyes only on the ring in front of him. When he arrives in the ring he simply places himself in a corner and awaits the contest to come.

Profile

Chris Kage is 36 years old, his character model is Jason Clarke. Kage was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, and shares a deep love for the city he grew up in. He spent most of his youth taking part in scholastic and free style wrestling, and took his love for the sport even farther as he attended Edinboro University after graduation and became a 3-time All-American. After college Kage began to dabble in the pro wrestling scene, finally getting his big break when long time friend Alexander Haven got him a try out with the NYSWF based out of Albany, New York. Kage immediately began to excel with the help of Haven, together they created one of the most successful stables in pro wrestling history; The Youth. The Youth feuded with HATE and other premier stables during their time in the NYSWF. During his time in the NYSWF Kage captured the Lightweight, Tag Team, and World Heavyweight titles. Looking to break away from Haven and make a name for himself, Kage made his way to the EWA. While in the EWA Kage had an impressive run as Lightweight Champion, which included epic battles with Sean Boden and many other of the lightweight superstars at the time. Kage capped off his time in the EWA with the biggest win of his career, defeating ‘Cold’ Harding Cash to become the EWA World Heavyweight Champion. Unfortunately for Kage the EWA would soon succumb to financial hardships and close down. Kage spent the next few years wrestling overseas in Japan and other countries, when he realized his time in wrestling was better served on the other side of the curtain. Kage opened a small wrestling school in Buffalo and spent most of his time there, that is… until he got the news that would change his life forever…

The EWA had reopened it’s doors with Michael and Erik Draven heading the ownership group charge. Kage decided to tip his toe in the EWA water after Michael Draven continually called out Kage’s late best friend Alexander Haven, who had passed away from an apparent drug overdose. Kage showed up and shared the news of Haven’s death with the masses while also vowing to shut Michael Draven’s mouth for good. Kage and Draven went back and forth for months, even involving Haven’s widow Alyssa Marie, who at the time had begun a romantic relationship with Draven. Everything finally came to a head at Champions Summit where Kage and Draven met in a ‘Street Fight.’. To everyone’s shock and dismay Alexander Haven would show up and cost Michael Draven the match, declaring his death was nothing more than a clever ruse to to ruin Michael Draven’s life once more. The next night Haven and Kage unveiled the return of their legendary stable known as ‘The Youth.’ Over the weeks that followed they recruited Tyler Morris and Martin Robertson, establishing themselves as an unstoppable force. Kage himself began to set his sights on ‘The Asylum’ match and reclaiming his EWA World Heavyweight Championship, a title which he claimed he never lost in the first place so many years ago. Weeks later Kage would solidify his EWA legacy by becoming a two-time EWA World Heavyweight Champ by winning a highly contested match in ‘The Asylum.’ Kage’s glory was short-lived however, as almost two weeks later he would lose in a stunning upset to Laura Seton. Kage spent the next few weeks bullying staff members and ultimately, Duane Gates, who had now taken over the EWA, into giving him a rematch against Laura Seton. With the odds undoubtedly stacked against Seton, Kage regained his world title, making him a three-time EWA World Heavyweight Champion, only outdone by Erik Draven who had held the same title five times. Kage spent the next several months feuding with Laura and SHOOT super star Azrael Goeren. During that time Kage was able to capture more gold, as he and his long time best friend Alexander Haven captured the EWA World Tag Team Titles. The reign was short-lived however as the duo dropped the belts to the legendary Latino Powers in match that would go down in history, or maybe not. As Kage’s world title reign ran through the summer, it was discovered that he had started a romantic relationship with then EWA administrative assistant Stacy Vandervort, the two became nearly inseparable. Kage was finally dethroned at ‘Live From Tokyo’ in a three way match against Goeren and Laura, which would end his record setting reign of 109 days. But the end to Kage’s title reign was the least of his worries as his brother’s in arms had become embroiled in an all out war with HATE. The war would come to a head at ‘Final Solution’ where the Youth finally defeated HATE laying claim to their superiority within the company. The war however would not end for Kage, as Indrid Calder began to play mind games with the three-time champ, zeroing in on the love of his life, Stacy Vandervort. Only time will tell what happens next.

Kage wears tights very similar to that of Chris Jericho from his WCW days. The base color is always red with different designs and colors mixed in on the sides of the legs. He always has his hands taped with black tape up to his forearm.
