Entrance: Fog engulfs the entrance ramp, highlighted by green lights as "Be Somebody" by Fort Minor begins to play throughout the arena.
This is the story of them against us, win or lose
Forcing your feet into someone else's shoes
Everybody's got something to say
That we ought to live their way, what we're doing's not okay
In this world, everybody's got a chip on both sides of their neck
Got no respect, wait up a sec
You ever feel like the pressure's too much to take?
Too much weight?
Ladies and gentlemen
If anybody can hear me right now, please shout back
We're not the only ones feeling so trapped
In a dream of somebody else, in fact
They got their heads full of some overblown scheme
Opportunity they missed back when they were sixteen
And all they want to do is push you to be that
And all you want to do is scream back
From the smoke emerges Antoni Malietoa with his eyes wide and arms out to his sides. As the fog clears, Antoni takes a step forward as he psychs him self up with a yell. The crowd begins to cheer for the Great Warrior.

Finishing Moves (Minimum of 2)
1. The Samoan Dynasty
Samoan Driver. starts as a fireman's carry, then the spin back and twist over the head into a driver. This is a finisher that works every time. He only uses is when he KNOWS that he has the match won. Otherwise, Antoni will use his other finisher.

1. Spear (usually a set up for the resurrection)
2. Forearm (Antoni does not use punches as he studied all forms of Wrestling and honors the Japanese code of no closed fists)

4. Dive over top rope to outside (Used in multi-man matches mostly, only used in singles matches rarely)
5. Multiple elbow drops (ala Mr. Wonderful)
6. High-Wrenching arm bar (applied closer to the shoulder than the elbow)
7. Mountain Bomb
8. Belly to Belly Supplex
9. Scoop Powerslam
10. Samoan headbutt (this is a move he will use when frustrated that he cannot put away his opponent)

Antoni Malietoa, born Anthony Matthews, was born on the isle of Samoa to parents who were ashamed to give him his rightful heritage name. Being from the famed Malietoa dynasty came with persecutions that Antoni's parents did not want for their son. shortly after birth, Antoni was shipped off to New Zealand to live with Tongans so that he could live among his people but never know who he really was. On his 21st birthday, Antoni was told of his real lineage by a drunken family friend. With the knowledge of who he was and what his blood line once was, Antoni knew he would have to fight to restore his family's honor. The next day he left New Zealand looking to train to become the great warrior that his blood line dictated he should be. His money ran out in Ireland where we began as a bare knuckle brawler and from there went on to attend Fight Factory Pro Wrestling Academy in Bray. Co. Wicklow, Eire. After his debut match Antoni always stayed just out of the limelight enough to not break through to the top of the industry. Recently, he has been scouted and recruited by The Collector to join his stable of the best wrestlers in the World, Criterion. Upon entering EWC, Criterion had very mixed results and it led to Antoni and his stablemates going away from The Collector. While the all remains friends and brothers, The Collector is no longer representing him. Antoni is now focused on continuing the War that is professional wrestling and representing himself and his bloodline with honor. Antoni found quick success after leaving the Collector and was named #1 contender to the US Championship before being decimated by The Limit after a match with Dominic Sanders. This put Antoni on the shelf for over 7 months before he attempted to come back, but in a match with Faith Rivers and Scorpio he realized that he was still injured. He wrestled once more against Bosa before knowing he was not ready to return. He then spent the next 11 months rehabbing even further before making his permanent return at WrestleFest in 2020 in a fatal fourway against Emma Louise, Darryl Pritchard and Aeon Khronos. In 2021, Antoni has hit the ground running, picking up wins against Samantha Hamilton, Joe Kane, Xavier Reid and Scott Coltrane, but losing to Ace King. In the second half of 2021, Antoni found himself in an odd arrangement as he was paired with returning superstar KU several times in tag action, leading to the two announcing that as of WrestleFest XIX, they will now be a permanent tag team in EWC, The Eleos Affect. Throughout season 23, KU and Antoni racked up win after win as a team, defeating the longest reigning EWC Tag Team Champions of all time, The Southern Express, twice (something that had never been done before by a team in EWC.)
