Silas Illiad was poised to join David Malakian during the dying days of the Xtreme Wrestling Association. A wrestler since his late teens, Silas has known David for over a decade. For the better part of nine years, the duo have been a world-traveled tag team, tearing it up all over the globe as a terrifying tandem.

RUTHLESS TECHNICIAN / SALESMAN » Silas serves as the mouthpiece of the team. He enjoys grandiose storytelling. Crafting exquisite anecdotes, and tragic tales of their tenacious opponents' brave, but inevitable demise; mere footnotes in their combined legacy. It goes without saying that this frequently earns Silas the ire of his opponents, and he tends to be the one people target more freely.

In the ring, he's a technician to behold. Crafty, innovative, and sly, with a move pool deeper than most Tool albums, he's comparable to a William Regal, a Pete Dunne, a Zack Sabre Junior, or a Nigel McGuinness in terms of his ring style. He combines excellent technical and catch wrestling with intense mind-games, vicious brawling, and small joint manipulation, to pick his opponents apart. It is very similar to British Strong Style, but notably more vindictive and submission oriented. He's... also one of those wrestlers who seems to have a body made out of elastic rubber. For whatever reason, hard strikes send him flying and bending at ragdoll-like angles, and he goes flying further than most from suplexes and other throws.

Between Silas' technical prowess, head games, single-minded determination, and David's absolutely monstrous physicality, pride, and agility, they're a force to be reckoned with indeed. With a different XWA on the horizon, the two look to continue doing what they do best. Tag Team Domination.

ENTRANCE THEME » "Have A Cigar" by Pink Floyd


The grimy, corporate grooves of Pink Floyd's "Have A Cigar" flood the arena, signaling the arrival of "The Messenger", as a mixed reaction- boos, mostly, follows in its wake. Silas Illad saunters out from behind the curtain, pausing on the ramp to fix his aviators and cast a quick glance all the way around the arena.

Hana Ramierez: "Making his way to the ring, from Brackley, England... weighing in at two hundred and fifteen pounds... "The Messenger"... Silas! Illiad!"

A satisfied Silas struts smarmily, smirking with self-satisfaction as he makes his way to the foot of the entrance ramp, then begins to circle around to one side of the ring. With a short burst of agility, Silas effortlessly hops up onto the apron, catching himself on the top rope with one hand as he leans back lazily, looking from side to side at the crowd, before staring directly into the hard cam. He lowers his aviators just slightly, as his smirk broadens into a grin. He raises them back up and stands tall on the ring apron, holding one hand out toward the disdainful crowd, palm up. He slowly rescinds his hand, drawing it toward himself before laying it over his heart. He then laughs before climbing into the ring through the middle rope and beginning to pace around the ring. Settling into the corner, Silas removes his aviators with a deliberate slowness, before strutting towards the center of the ring and handing them to the official to 'keep safe'. He then 'shoo's the referee away and returns to his corner, where he lounges lazily in anticipation of his opponent / the match to begin.
