DEDEDE managed to assemble a team that had Tyler Parker, along with Diamond Cage who wasn't interested and Killswitch. Team DEDEDE waged strategic offense on Team Diamond, even taking out one of the members of "The Ironfist", leaving only Wolverton, Gunkai Riggs, and Sir Alistair White. EAW Champion and Hall of Famer, Kawajai, made his return on the September 8th edition of Dynasty, serving as a double agent who was signed originally by Scott to join Team Diamond, but betrayed him to join Team DEDEDE as their 5th member.
