Kevin enjoying the moment.

Klein would be assigned a typical heel gimmick. Klein would perform well, but would lose to a man named Inferno. After his first lost in his first ever match he was offer a spot with The Pantheon. Though it didn't last for so long. Despite the recent loss, Klein would be given another title shot, in an Right Man Elimination bout for the TNW Hardcore Title. Klein wouldn't fair nearly as well, and was eliminated first by a man who would impact Klein's future career more than anyone, Matt Cage. Now that several unfortunate events, Kevin's luck starts to spread. Kevin wins his very first title, the X-division Champion. Though he only defended it once and loses it against Mike Virgo. Just right after his lost he was put into a match with Santino to fight for the World Champion Title. Kevin successfully defeated Santino as he sweeps the title away from him. Klein successfully defended his title until after, John Cerano comes along as he challenge Klein for the title. Klein was overly confident from his last match against Santino, Klein then arrogantly accepted the challenge knowing he can regain the title. Klein then was in for a surprise, Cerano have defeated him.

Klein wasn't too upset about it, instead he went to talk to his fellow TNW superstar Ace, which have formed a team to get the Tag Team Champion. Ace and Kevin bounded together and successfully wins the Tag Team Title from the Joe Bros. After that Ace and Kevin was one of the most dominate tag team to ever set foot in TNW, they have successfully defended the Tag titles five times. When PPV Road to Kings comes Klein was one of the superstars in a match for The Money in the Bank Klein with five other superstars, there Klein wins the money in the bank. From there on, Kevin waited for the right time to use his Money in the Bank, Kevin decided to use it to get a title shot at the World Title. Klein gets his shot but blows it as he was defeated by X-Core who was the newly crowned World Champion. Also began to experience problems with management, mainly due to the fact that Klein was avoided being paid due to the federation facing foreclosure. Kevin was then announced to be The Rookie of the Month the day, TNW closed, leaving a sour taste in Klein's mouth.

Personal life

  • Personality:Sickeningly sweet but mean as hell at the same time. Has a bit of a quick wit to explain his actions but no one except those closest to him really know what he thinks or feels about things. Also very smart and wise to many things do to reading and just observing.
  • Strengths: Kevin hits his opponents fast and stays on top of them- if he can, he’ll keep knocking an opponent down, giving no ground and maintaining superiority for as long as he possibly can. In the ring, his demeanor is ice cold, and he is hard to intimidate or enrage. Kevin is an excellent strategist and often thinks his way through matches as well as fighting through them. In matches of major importance, he will push himself to the absolute limit and go all out.
  • Weaknesses: Sometimes he relies more on proving points than winning the match and can get tunnel vision for his opponents where they have 100% of his focus and notice anything else going on around, leaving him open to attacks
