The Multiverse Defenders

Defenders of the Multiverse: O-Kari (far left), O-TK (middle left), Nate (middle right), and O-Aelita (far right)

The Multiverse Defenders were a professional wrestling stable. The faction consisted of four officers from another universe known as Nathan "Nate" Blair, Officer Aelita Schaeffer, Officer Takeru Takaishi, and Officer Kari Kamiya, who all wanted to take a shot at competing in the ring. In 2018, following reports of negative behavior backstage, the group was released from any company they worked for and, as a result, dissolved.

In Wrestling Edit

In the team's respective wrestling styles, Blair depends on his mixture of a powerhouse and a brawler and is best known for his adoptive style of Goldberg's; O-Aelita takes on the styles of a high-flyer and a technician as her style is a crowd-pleaser like her young counterpart and shares the technical high-flying style with O-Kari; and finally, O-TK relies on being a high-flyer, taking on high risks and showing no fear in flying all over the ring to take down his opponent.

Trivia Edit

  • The Multiverse Defenders were, as a whole, suspended and then released en masse from the various companies they were signed to. This decision was a result of their backstage behavior, which many described as "toxic, petty, and uncaring". The first company to do so was Ultimate Wrestling Entertainment, with other companies following their example.
