The Xtreme Killah's are a professional wrestling tag team that is currently signed to Premium Championship Wrestling and WWE Legacy™. The team consists of Kevin Styles and J.T. Banks. The pair are more known as two of the original members of the legendary Da Xtreme Dynasty. They are the only two to have been in every single incarnation of the team. Together, they have won a total of six World Tag Team Championships as a team and have been a unit since 2003.

Elite Class Championship Wrestling (2003 - 2006)

Da Xtreme Dynasty Era, Part I

At Bloody Glory, Kevin Styles turned heel as he and J.T. Banks helped James Baker defeat Phillip Mustang to begin his third ECCW World Heavyweight Championship reign. The next night on WarZone, Baker then explained how he wanted to help lead a group of men who are willing to do whatever it takes to win and he said that he chose J.T. Banks and Kevin Styles to be his dynasty and from there, Styles and Banks were officially a team.

At Night of Champions 2003, both Styles and Banks defeated Kevin and Efran Ortiz to begin the longest ECCW World Tag Team Championship reign in the company's history history. Also at the Pay-Per-View, Styles and Banks helped Baker successfully defended his ECCW World Heavyweight Championship as he defeated Alex Brand to retain the title. Styles and Banks then started their dominance over the tag team division as they turned back every possible tag team that they defended their championships against while still helping James Baker win his matches.

Months later Styles and Banks along with Baker resumed their rivalry with Phillip Mustang with Mustang and Baker both gaining the upper hand over each other. Meanwhile, both Styles and Banks were constantly fending off every tag team that was thrown in front of them as they defeated a lot of different tag teams to retain their ECCW World Tag Team Championship. At Night of Champions 2004, Styles and Banks defeated Kilo Perez and Jamaican Sensation to retain their ECCW World Tag Team Championship, while Baker defeated Phillip Mustang to win the ECCW World Heavyweight Championship and also ending the Baker vs Mustang feud once and for all.

After the Baker vs Mustang feud came to an end, Da Xtreme Dynasty then set their focus on trying to gain the other championships in ECCW. Baker then defeated both Juan Martinez and Mario Johnson to gain both the ECCW Television Championship and the ECCW Hardcore Championship. The following week on WarZone, Baker then held a ceremony in the ring and he gave Styles the ECCW Hardcore Championship while he gave Banks the ECCW Television Championship as an act of kindness. On the January 17th, 2005 edition of WarZone, Da Xtreme Dynasty were involved in a screwjob like match as they paid a referee to help Baker defeat Sean Jamison to begin his seventh reign as the ECCW World Heavyweight Champion. However those efforts were short lived as Baker lost the ECCW World Heavyweight Championship back to Jamison at Redemption.

The MidEast Driveby Connection Era

The next night on WarZone, Baker called both Banks and Styles to the ring. Baker stated that he wanted to start off fresh and help Da Xtreme Dynasty to get back to the top. However it was all revealed to be a setup as Baker then attacked Banks and Styles and laid them out to officially end Da Xtreme Dynasty. Later that night both Styles and Banks were attacked again by Baker and Phillip Mustang which officially turned Styles back to being a face and it also turned his tag team partner J.T. Banks into a face as well. Both Styles and Banks then remained as a tag team and renamed themselves The MidEast Driveby Connection and they then stated their desire to get revenge on James Baker and Phillip Mustang who by this point had reformed The Driveby Express.

Both teams then traded the ECCW World Tag Team Championships with each other over the next year and their rivalry also became very heated as Baker employed several psychological and dirty tactics to gain the advantage over The MidEast Driveby Connection. At Bloodymania 2005, Styles lost the ECCW Hardcore Championship to Carlos Ortiz following interference from The Driveby Express. At Sacrifice 2005, Styles then defeated The Japanese Kid to win the ECCW Light Heavyweight Championship. However eight days later, he lost the championship back to The Japanese Kid. From there he was involved in many different feuds with his tag team with J.T. Banks being quietly phased out. At the final ECCW show, both Styles and Banks competed in a three way tag team match against The Driveby Express and the returning team of Ron Bridges and The Afro Kid, unfortunately for Styles and Banks, they lost the match when Baker pinned Bridges to win the match for The Driveby Express.

Classic Wrestling Federation (2009 - 2010)

Reuniting the Team and Getting Back in the Groove

Styles and Banks resurfaced as a team for the first time in three years as they called James Baker up and reformed Da Xtreme Dynasty with Danielle Lopez as their manager.

On the October 24th edition of Showdown, both Styles and Banks made their CWF debut as they faced off against High Concept (Darryl Devine and Jacob Jett) and The Double Dragons (Jeffrey Bogard and Johnny Lee) in a triple threat tornado tag team match up for an opportunity at the CWF World Tag Team Championship at Halloween Extreme, Styles and Banks unfortunately lost the match up as Darryl Devine eliminated Banks via the Devine Intervention onto the steel chair. In various promos of their own and some of James Baker's promos, Da Xtreme Dynasty has taken jabs at The Richards Legion calling them "the Inbreded Legion", "the Cock Sucking Legion", jackasses and "the Inbreded Cock Sucking Legion" among other distasteful names. Both Styles and Banks have stated that they'll be glad to take on The Richards Legion and they'll do it anytime and anywhere. The feud with The Richards Legion however was put on hold due to Terry Richards turning into a face. As a result of Terry's face turn, The Richards Legion also turned face as well.

On the November 21st edition of Showdown, both Styles and Banks faced the tag team Molten Lava to determine the number one contender for the CWF World Tag Team Championship at Battle to Survive and defeated them with The MidEast Driveby. At Battle to Survive, both Styles and Banks faced Degradation for the CWF World Tag Team Championship, but unfortunately came up short of the victory. On the January 2nd edition of Showdown, Styles and Banks will face off against The Richards Legion and The O'Reilly Brothers for a shot at the CWF World Tag Team Championship at Last Man Standing against Degradation , but lost when Ray O'Reilly pinned Styles. After the match, Styles and Banks then got into a brawl with the Richards Legion. James Baker made the save for Styles and Banks until Terry Richards came onto the screen and revealed that he was the one who kidnapped Enrique Lopez.

Reclaiming Their Place as the Best Tag Team in the Industry

As a result of the events, the original members of Da Xtreme Dynasty teamed up for the first time in five years as they took on all three members of The Richards Legion in a six man tag team match at Last Man Standing, but the team lost when Terry pinned Banks following the Shock Turn II. On the January 16th edition of Showdown, Styles and Banks went up against The Richards Legion in a tag team match and lost when Terry Richards interfered and clipped Banks' ankle to cause Chris Richards to pin him.

On the second edition of the Late Night with Bobby Crane Show, Baker and Da Xtreme Dynasty made an appearance where it was revealed that Baker kidnapped Terry Richards' sister Hikari with Baker also throwing out some demands while Styles and Banks had tension with Bobby Crane. On the February 6th edition of Showdown, Styles and Banks faced Rob Osbourne and his new bodyguard Retribution, but again came out on the losing end as Retrubution pinned Styles following the Final Judgement. Styles and Banks however had a visible presence on the show as they helped their leader James Baker attack Trent Walker, they made a deal with The O'Reilly Brothers to watch their back in their match for a CWF World Tag Team Championship match and they delivered on that promise as they costed The Richards Legion the match.

On the February 20th edition of Showdown, Styles and Banks faced The O'Reilly Brothers for the CWF World Tag Team Championships and won the match when Banks pinned Ray O'Reilly after he and Styles hit Ray with the Lights Out to win their third tag team championship as a team. During this time, the Dynasty (more specifically J.T. Banks) started to have a change in their characters as they went from being dependent on James Baker to doing things for themselves. On the February 27th edition of Showdown, every member of the Dynasty were involved in a segment with The O'Reilly Brothers and The Legion of Shadows. The Segment ended with Danielle Lopez getting injured at the hands of their nemesis, Terry Richards. Later on in the show, Styles and Banks got some form of payback for Danielle by costing The Legion their match against The O'Reilly's. On the March 6th edition of Showdown, Styles and Banks then helped James Baker gain more revenge towards the Legion of Shadows by hitting Chris Richards with a Double Chop Block to the knees while they hit both Alex Richards and Israel Steele with Lights Out and The Dream Destroyer, respectively.

At Night of Champions V: Liftoff, Styles and Banks defended their titles against The O'Reilly Brothers in a rematch, but the match ended in a no contest as the O'Reilly's attacked Styles and Banks before the bell rang. The match then started again later on in the night, but again, the two teams got into a brawl and as a result, Styles and Banks are still the champions. On the March 27th edition of Showdown, the original members of Da Xtreme Dynasty went up against the Legion of Shadows in a six man tag team match and it went to a no contest as the two factions went to an all out brawl with each other. At Super Card VI, Styles and Banks teamed up with Danielle Lopez and defended their titles against The O'Reilly Brothers and Suzanne Winters, but lost the titles when Banks was pinned. Prior to the match, they added Israel Steele as the newest member of the team. On the April 16th edition of Showdown, Styles, Banks, Blair and Danielle all brawled with The O'Reilly Brothers and Suzanne, for not giving them the first shot. Styles, Blair and Banks laid The O'Reilly Brothers out with steel chairs, while Danielle hit Suzanne with the Latinasault onto a chair wrapped around her neck. At Vendetta, Da Xtreme Dynasty went up against The O'Reilly Brothers in a steel cage match for a shot at the CWF World Tag Team Championship in what was billed as the final encounter between these two teams and they lost when Styles accidentally sent Cyrill out of the cage with a dropkick. It was reported that all of them had asked for their release and they were granted that wish. It's unknown as to where they will go from here, but a return to the CWF in the future is very possible as no bridges were burnt. That would later proved to be false as the CWF closed down, but all members of Da Xtreme Dynasty are on very good terms with Mark Xamin and the rest of the old CWF staff.
