@BRAE Congratulations! BRAE is a fantastic character, and with this you've been able to show more of your range as a writer with a second great character that was bound to become Champion eventually. Your rise to this point has been fantastic, and it culminated with such an amazing match and performance from you. I'm glad to see you get this victory and start BRAE's first reign as a Champion in EAW. We've seen what you can do before, so I'm sure that this is gonna be a great reign for you.

@Michael Machina Amazing title reign. Being a record breaker so soon with only your first reign is super impressive, and a great sign of what's to come for you in the future. This was a well deserved reign, and no matter what's next you'll absolutely kill it. Both of you have absolutely proven that great things are in your futures. This was all around a really great match between two very talented writers.

This is such a special moment to me that I can’t really express with just words. This is such a rewarding & fun experience all around, and to be able to have this with Brae means all the more from how far we’ve come to be here. All of the love is appreciated always, @BRAE you deserve this moment, such a hard working & creative person altogether. So proud of you, keep killing it!

When I heard Michael Machina and BRAE was happening at PFP, I legit was geeked that whole night. I have known Seb/Mike since I was 13, we've spent countless nights doing dumb shit together and we both joined EAW like quite genuinely the same day.

But it was without a doubt the match I've most probably ever been excited for in my e-fedding life. It feels amazing to be able to follow such a historic reign, @Michael Machina, but while I do that, you only go even further on up. And the way I see it is, this is only game one for BRAE & Machina. To have the match at this sentiment meant so much to me.

Truly thank yall for all the love, won't look back ever.

You did your fucking thing, all season, @BRAE. Your versatility knows no bounds in EAW and now it's time that you flourish as BRAE when you've been doing an insanely good job as him. I don't even know you and Seb all that well but understanding what the match meant to y'all made it so much better. From the feud alone to the match itself, I was so so happy to see you get that big win after the back and forth dueling we've done.

That goes for you too, @Michael Machina. Longest reigning New Breed Champion and a phenomenal one at that. You make everyone step their game up. It's insane how good you are and a testament to what you've done that BRAE's win over Machina feels so special. I said this in the Discord but genuinely, I cannot wait to see what's next for Machina.

I MISS THE RAGE!!!!!!!!!

So incredibly versatile. @BRAE I love your work as BRAE and as Bea. You’re an amazing talent and the sky is the limit for you! If only you weren’t a Vols guy… smh. 😉

@Michael Machina plain and simple. Shoutout to an absolute goat. Dominant reign for someone who is going to tear up the next division. Go kill them (except me, leave me alone, I’m nice)

that one place i forgot what it called
Knowing your talent for a long time, I knew you would be able to achieve this quickly. It's great to see someone who can reach this level in such a short time, setting a standard for newcomers to see that they can achieve it too, just like BRAE has done. BRAE has portrayed himself excellently and has been one of my favorite parts of Dynasty this season. I'm looking forward to what you can do next season, and I'm sure you will make this run worthwhile from bottom to top. @BRAE

This ending is the beginning of greater things—that's what I would say for Michael Machina. As I’ve mentioned in our chats before, I always commend and am proud of what you have become here. I remember looking back at you before you even made it here, knowing that if you ever took this EAW platform seriously, you would excel. I’m proud of this reign, and I’m glad you have become a significant part of history. Keep it up next season, man. I hope Michael Machina can achieve even greater heights in his arc. @Michael Machina

Yessir!!! @BRAE Look at how you've been able to take off running ever since you joined EAW. You've had an amazing rise, having two characters with their own identities who have built themselves up as the future of this promotion. Your creativity and genuine passion for this game are amazing and even infectious, as I know how much you care about both Bea and BRAE. Now, you've been able to have a season where you get to lay claim that both of your muses have been champions, and that is not an easy feat to achieve, especially when you have only been here for a little past a year now! Like, do you understand how truly insane that is for you to accomplish?! Not even some of the best writers here have been able to do something like that, let alone at such a fast rate. However, you have shown that your success is far from temporary. It is absolutely sustainable, and with BRAE becoming the New Breed Champion and you dethroning yet another dominant champion :troll: to do that, it just goes to show that you can undoubtedly hang with the best of the best. You became the third-longest Specialists Champion of ALL TIME as Bea in her first-ever title reign here and did so before her one-year anniversary of having her first match here. That is a testament to how fucking stellar you are. No doubt you will take this New Breed title run far, and I cannot wait to see you create another banger of a reign with this character.

@Michael Machina I mean, where do I even begin? Since day one I have been hooked on the Michael Machina character. There was just something about him that made me instantly gravitate towards him. He was a big talker, but he definitely backed that shit up, and for 246 days, you were able to transform him into the new breed of legends. It goes without saying, but to break a record held by one of the best Elitists of all time and to do so with your first-ever title reign here is insane. It goes to show how talented you are and, more than anything, how many trust you and see you as the future of this place. You've been able to give Michael one of the greatest rookie runs of all time, and dare I say, you may have had the greatest rookie run of this generation here in EAW. You absolutely deserve any and all praise because what you have been able to do within a year cannot be overstated. And to think that is only the beginning for you. There is still so much for you to achieve, but I know if there's anyone who can elevate themselves, continue to work hard, and never settle, it's you. The sky is the limit for you now, and I can't wait to see you go on to achieve even more big things.

You two have become some of my closest friends in this game this year, and seeing you both rise in this manner has been amazing. I've already said to you both time and time again, but seeing you succeed warms my heart. I know you guys are gonna continue to kill it, and I will be here along with others, watching you two continue to do great things here.

Also, kept in the family. 🧏🏾‍♀️🧏🏾‍♀️🧏🏾‍♀️

This was ultimately an inevitable match and before I address you individually, I just want to congratulate the both of you on being able to have this moment TOGETHER. This was the most anime match since me and Bronson and I'm sure the two of you will be back doing it again on that same platform me and Bronson had one day.

@BRAE The success you have found already in EAW is so genuinely admirable. As someone who has never even competed for the New Breed Championship; I've always just been an onlooker, and pretty much just a fan. That title has produced so many special characters, and winning it at Pain For Pride no less; you're set up for greatness. Continue cooking, and carry this responsibility with as much passion as you did heading into this match. The rage may be missed, but you sure didn't miss.

@Michael Machina You made history with that Championship, and if you you see what the previous record holder did following his reign? I am absolutely scared of your potential. And who isn't? As a match writer, you excel. As a promo, you excel. As a character, you excel. You quite literally are limitless, there is nothing you cannot accomplish here and this reign is just the beginning. You have this place in a chokehold and at no point should you let go. Tighten the pressure and just keep getting higher :goat:

@BRAE I have seen your talent, but I didn't get to truly experience it until our little rivalry with Bea that I truly got to see how amazing you are. You have embraced each of your characters and given them a life of their own. Now you are the New Breed Champion with BRAE. I am so happy for you and excited to see where BRAE takes it. Congratulations!!!

@Michael Machina Why are you so darn good at everything you do? You are amazing in your promos and just as awesome with your match writing. Wish I had that talent early on :LOL:. I mean that in the best way possible. You took the New Breed Title and not just ran with it, but kicked it into turbo drive. With that kind of talent, the sky is the limit for you and Championship gold for you isn't a matter of if, but when. Congrats on a historic reign and welcome to the Record Breakers Club.

Congratulations @BRAE for this huge win and your first title with this character!! You have been on the rise ever since you first entered this character and now you are going into next season as a Champion!! It was a great deal of fun to do promos against you and I can't wait to see what you'll do of this reign. But more importantly: Enjoy it!

@Michael Machina the New Breed of Legend fell... Or did he? I don't think so, not for a second. Since the moment you got here you imposed yourself and as Limmy said you excelled again and again so to me while you became the face of the New Breed division the sky is the only limit for you and it's going to be exciting to see what's next for you!

@BRAE congratulations on this massive win bro this shit is well deserved you’re a very talented writer and da BRAE character was going to takeoff especially after he missed da rage… Good things to come with him as champion man 💯!

@Michael Machina who would’ve taught man from being part of final three in last years 24/7 battle royale at Paint For Pride to having this legendary of a championship run. You came in hot and was able to keep that momentum, passion, and dedication. Best believe Michael Machina is here to stay and more gold will be coming to him sooner rather than later 💪🏼

@BRAE This is a huge win, I hope you take pride in the work you've done to achieve it. You're a great writer so this is very deserved, and I have no doubt that you'll go on to have an awesome reign as champion. I'll be looking forward to it. Keep the rage flowing.

@Michael Machina If you keep up the quality you've exhibited throughout this reign, I have no doubt that there's a lot of success in the future for this character. You're the future of this place, so go and make that future a reality. Great stuff legend.

@BRAE Not familiar with your character at all, and I'm sorry for that, but the explosion when you claimed the title showed just how much people think about you around here. Going to be reading some of your stuff now going forwards thats for sure.

@Michael Machina Do not be disheartened by this loss, I'm sure your future is paved with gold like @Myles said.

@BRAE You're an amazing mfer you know that right? I remember the times when you were so disheartened about joining EAW even tho I continuously shoved this shit down your throat, now here we are and aren't you glad??? Just kidding man. You deserve all of this and I'm glad that your talented writing skills and versatile handiwork have been able to get you to the place that you no doubt should be in with both characters. Let's keep the memories going.

@Michael Machina This is like the first loss for Machina in centuries, you know damn well you're gonna be a star man, I don't need to say that for you to know. Main event talent no matter what brand he lands on, that's a fact.

@BRAE YOU FOUND THE RAGE !! !! !! This has been a long time coming for the BRAE character, which is one that I've loved since its inception. With Bea and BRAE both, you already know what I think about your limitless font of creativity and I always take the time out of my day to read any of your characters' promos whenever they drop. From the endlessly intense BRAE to the ludicrous Bea Valentine, one thing is for sure and that's the fact that as long as you keep at it, I don't think there is any limit as to how far you can go. You can tank any loss because you'll be able to produce even better promos out of it, and it will inevitably lead to even greater victories like the one you had at Pain for Pride. Hope you enjoy your reign!

@Michael Machina The New Breed of Legends indeed! Our careers have been intertwined for ages now and at any given moment I know we can look at the match card and see us going head to head again :mjgrin: your reign as NB Champ was truly special and you never once let up on the motivation throughout the entirety of the run. There's no telling how far you'll be able to go, so it's just a matter of looking to see how it goes; there's no doubt in my mind that no matter what you do, it'll be incredible. In my restless dreams, I see that champ :wow:

Writing y'all's match was very fun because your characters are built to entertain; both complement each other so well, and I know y'all have been wanting this 1v1 for a long while now, so it was destined to be everything it was built up to be. I got to witness cinema, and there'll be plenty more of that as y'all continue with the level of consistency you've shown for the past season!

@BRAE First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!!! This title win is exciting because in the span of a single season, you have shown us just how talented of a promoer you are by bringing not one, but TWO insanely different characters to the forefront of two different brands with two vastly different bookers. For someone to be so impressive in such a short amount of time is truly unheard of, and I can't help but sit back and applaud you for your efforts this season. I love Bea Valentine. She is my future GOAT in the making, but I can't deny how great BRAE is and what the future is gunna hold for him. I have no doubt that this New Breed Championship is the first of many for him, and as long as you stay the course and continue trucking along, you have nothing but a bright future in EAW ahead of you.

As for you @Michael Machina ... get ready for one hell of a ride in the upcoming season wherever you end up (I mean, I already know but you don't, haha)! I have no doubt that there is so much coming your way and breaking the record for the longest New Breed Championship reign just scratches the surface of things for you. Personally, I can't even begin to express what a joy it has been to witness your growth as a story-teller. Match writing is an art, that some people either embrace or shun, and to say you have embraced it would be an understatement. I'm going to be honest, I knew your match for PFP would be great which is why I wanted you as the writer, but what I didn't expect is for it become one of my favorite Kassidy matches of all time. You have been an absolute joy to work with this season on the Voltage and I know there's so much more you're capable of. It's kind of scary, to be honest, but that's the best part of this game. You never know when someone's gunna come along with a bum ass pic base like Batista and really knock your socks off. Congrats on everything this season as a handler and as a match writer.
