The Monster....the Machine.....both describe this man that watches from shadows. Seeming to shrug off pain and suffering, Coun follows the motto of his life: What does not kill us, Makes us stronger. Seemingly walking the fine line between sanity and insanity he strives to prove himself as not just a wrestler, but a warrior. Calm and methodical in the ring, until blooded or enraged, then this beast explodes into a beserker fury....only to leave opponents lying in pools of their own blood, all the while he madly chuckles. Now, the Apocalypse has come...and Coun, now known as Mayhem has been reborn. He brings his Wrath on all that oppose him. Mercy is not shown, unless he looks to Sanity....which is the Dragon Mask.

Hear the Thunder...Hear the Drums...Fear the Battle....For Mayhem comes.

Now though, the Apocalypse is over, and the Rebirth has begun. What once was, now is again. Mayhem has fallen to the wayside, being replaced by He who was Coun. With the Rebirth though comes the breaking of sanity. The Voices that have long been in Coun's head have now been set free, and not even the Dragon Mask can contain them.

With the symbol of Coun's semi-sanity now stolen...what will soon become of him? For the time being he has reverted to his pre-military state, his true self....Daniel Carlson. This man, this Hardcore Icon, still has the heart of a fighter, but has his soul gone with the Dragon Mask? What will happen to his sanity if the mask does happen to return? Only time will tell.

The Mask returned, and Coun restored...he left the AWL for six months. Upon returning the Iron Dragon won back the AWL North American Title....then was called out by Jade for the Wyldside...but not as Coun...As Mayhem. Mayhem has been unleased once more...and this the Wyldside Champion...he will not go quietly into the darkness.

January of 07 Brings Mayhem to reform K.o.D., brining in the woman that fought him so hard, Jade.

Now, as Wrestler's Warzone approaches, Mayhem has announced his retirement. Will his final match be at WW IV?
