The world of professional sports-entertaining was abuzz last spring when Nicholas [SURNAME UNKNOWN], a 10-year-old boy plucked from the WrestleMania 34 crowd to become Braun Strowman’s tag partner, led his team to victory against Sheamus [SURNAME UNKNOWN] and [FIRST NAME REDACTED] Cesaro.
Although the future looked bright for Nicholas as the second-youngest WWE Tag Team Champion in history (The 1-2-3- Kid still holds the record, as he was only nine when he captured gold with Marty Jannetty), Nicholas shockingly relinquished his championship the night after WrestleMania, allowing the vacated championship to be captured by Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt at The Greatest Royal Rumble in [LOCATION REDACTED].
Many fans have been left wondering what Nicholas has been up to since his brief moment in the WWE spotlight.

Here is a timeline:
April 8, 2018: Braun Strowman chooses Nicholas as his tag team partner, to the shock and confusion of 70,000 fans at the

April 9, 2018: Nicholas relinquishes the championship, insisting he needs time to finish elementary school and “find his smile.” This storyline is, however, merely a cover-up of his 30-day Wellness Policy violation after testing positive for Flintstones Chewable Vitamins.
April 10, 2018: Nicholas is suspended from school for telling his social studies teacher to “get these hands.”
April 29, 2018: Nicholas starts taking indy bookings, occasionally tagging with Brian Cage to form the team “Nicholas Cage.”

May 17, 2018: Nicholas is taken into custody in the first of many arrests. Police are called to a domestic argument between Nicholas and Tammy Sytch, who were heard by neighbors bickering over whose turn it was to play the PS4.

June 15, 2018: After running afoul of Mexican drug cartel leaders, Nicholas flees Mexico and heads to Japan, where he performs once in the ill-fated “Projectile Gang,” which is disbanded after a copyright-infringement suit is filed by the Bullet Club.
July 6, 2018: Disheveled and overweight, Nicholas arrives three hours late for an autograph signing at Heroes of the Squared Circle convention in Delaware, and is thrown out after engaging in a shouting match with The Iron Sheik and urinating on a stack of eight-by-ten photographs of Bobby Fulton.
July 29 to October 17, 2018: Nicholas spends more than two months living in the house of Diamond Dallas Page, where he is put through a gruelling regimen of listening to Diamond Dallas Page shout inspirational slogans.

November 4, 2o18 to present: According to veteran wrestling journalist Dan Mutzler, Nicholas has moved back to Mexico, where he is living in an orphanage run by a ginger-bearded luchador. Braun Strowman has said he can “neither confirm nor deny” rumors that he is in the process of adopting Nicholas in hopes of a tag team reunion and second championship run.
