Anyway, I might as well go into it. Here are the details of each episode:
Ashes Episode 1: "Prelude"
A construction worker is talking to a guy and explaining about doing some work on a building and he said that he needs it to do before the Allentown Zoning Board. The guy is not worry about it. The construction worker wanted to know what the guy is up to. The guy explains that he is going to train in pro wrestling. The construction worker ask the guy what is he is going to call it. The guy that is revealed to be Mike Quackenbush and says, "The Wrestle Factory".
Here is the episode:
This episode is what the story have been tell as how Mike Quackenbush open the Wrestle Factory over a decade ago in Allentown, Pennsylvania. I know only two have help Mike to train: Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli.
Ashes Episode 2: "Man Down"
Fire Ant and Green Ant are at a house to a guy in a wheelchair. According to the comments on the video post on YouTube, they say it's Worker Ant, but, I am not sure, but I would agree. Anyway, the Ants are looking for their friend, Soldier Ant, who has gone missing and they ask the guy in the wheelchair if he seen Soldier Ant. The guy said that he hasn't and then the guy give the Ants a box of something and he said that they learn enough and make him proud.
Here is the episode:
The story of the Colony (That's the name of the stable that had Fire Ant and Green Ant) is that they were trained at the Wrestle Factory under Mike Quackenbush, however who also was trained the Colony. According to Wikipedia, Soldier Ant, Fire Ant, and Worker Ant were trained by Chris Hero and Green Ant was trained by Claudio Castagnoli. Besides that, the Colony has some odd ants: assailAnt and Carpenter Ant. assailAnt is the new member of the Colony, replacing Soldier Ant, and Carpenter Ant is a traitor. Carpenter Ant betrayed the Colony when he joined Bruderschaft des Kreuzes and removed the mask to reveal himself as Pinkie "Pink Ant" Sanchez, which he has a mask that was in pink and white when he joined them, but, he was being a nutcase.
Ashes Episode 3: "Garbage"
At a Dragon Gate USA show, Icarus was watching an eight man tag team, featuring his pal and former member of Team F.I.S.T, Chuck Taylor. After the show, Icarus tried to get backstage to see Chuck Taylor, but he was denied, because he was not part of Dragon Gate USA. Outside, Icarus waited for Chuck Taylor to come out and the two talk. Icarus was trying to convince Chuck about what happened at Aniversaro: Never Compromise, but, Chuck convince Icarus to get new ring gear and try to get bookings. As Chuck was about to drive off, he tells Icarus that he needs to change or his career will too. The last thing Chuck was telling Icarus to call him and then he drove off. Icarus shakes his head.
Here is the episode:
Icarus has been part of a tag team and stabled called, Team F.I.S.T. with originally, Gran Akuma, and before Chuck Taylor was added to the trio. The three men were in fact part of the stable, The Kings of Wrestling, in Chikara with the late Larry Sweeney and the two original members of the Kings of Wrestling, Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli. They got so out of control when Claudio and Chris start to fell apart and Chris tried to kept the stable in tact, but, it got worse. After that Team F.I.S.T stay together, until Gran Akuma was betrayed by Icarus and Chuck Taylor and was replaced by Johnny Gargano.
Ashes Episode 4: "Thwarted"
While on an elevator to the top of a parking garage, the tag team known as 3.0, friends, Shane Matthews and Scott Parker talk about what happened at Chikara Aniversario: Never Compromise. The two tells about what happened during the main event and why they left after their match. Scott Parker said that what happened at the show they have to go back to the end. Scott wanted to know is who was there when the stage falls. Shane Matthews said that Wink Vavasseur has been off the radar for months. Scott agrees. Shane suggest about the band geek, which Scott said, "Archibald Peck?", which Shane agrees. Shane believe that Archibald Peck knows what happened at Aniversario: Never Compromise. Scott like the ideal and the two are on the hunt for Archibald Peck.
Here is the episode:
I don't know what to say about Shane Mathews and Scott Parker. All I read through Wikipedia that they won the Chikara Campeonatos de Parejas two times. I would admit that Shane Mathews is very crazy and Scott Parker keeps it together.
Ashes Episode 5: "Fickle"
Outside of an antique store, Icarus, in his car, has just finished drinking coffee or tea and thinking about what Chuck Taylor told him. All of a sudden a guy comes out of the antique store which caught Icarus' eye. Icarus went inside of the store and said, "Donst, I know you are not happy to see me. But, we need to talk". Apparently the guy in the store is Tim Donst. Tim was really happy to see Icarus. Tim tells Icarus that he needs to eat lunch. Icarus don't mind at all. So, the two end up talking while Tim is having lunch. As the two talk, Icarus wanted to talk about what happened at Chikara Anivesario: Never Compromise and trying to get the gang back. Tim froze for a moment in between of what Icarus is saying, until Icarus mention about what happened at the show, which Tim thought for more then a moment. Tim snaps out of it and tells Icarus to say hello to Hallowicked. As Icarus is leaving, Tim caught up to him and give Icarus the Young Lions Cup to give to Jakob Hammermeier and tell him that Tim is sorry. Icarus takes the cup and put it in his car. Icarus sighs and he mocks Tim. Icarus has a hissy fit. Then, Icarus pulls out a notebook and permanent marker and cross off something. Then Icarus drives with the GPS on his iPhone is on.
Here is the episode:
Some YouTube users said that there were references into this episode, which I could agree on. 1647 Republic Road is the location of the Wrestle Factory is at. The antique store, which someone said furniture store is where Tim Donst and Hallowicked had a fight in one. However, I also know a few other things. For an example, what Tim is eating is a salad, but it might be vegan, in which this is referred to Bryan Danielson as Tim had fought against him when Bryan got fired from WWE before he was rehired again. Another one is that blue button shirt and white shorts, which I don't care about the color button shirt, but that button shirt and shorts are referred to Tim's music video "Who is the Man", in which Tim sings about him and Hallowicked over the Young Lions Cup. Another thing is when Tim gave Icarus the Young Lions Cup to give to Jakob Hammermeier, Tim was the reason why Jakob lost to "Mr. Touchdown" Mark Angelosetti as the Young Lions Cup was on the line. I don't know what the story about Icarus and Tim Donst if they ever feuded, but, I know about Tim and why he froze when Icarus mention about Aniversario: Never Compromise.
Tim Donst has been trained by Mike Quackenbush, Chris Hero, and Jorge "Skayde" Rivera at the Wrestle Factory. Tim made his debut in 2007 an got into crazy feuds including Eddie Kingston, Ultra Mantis Black, Mike Quackenbush, Hydra, Player Dos, Hallowicked, and most recently, Gavin Loudspeaker, which prompt into a hair vs. hair match at Aniversario: Never Compromise, which Tim lost. Tim is currently has been seen at Wrestling is Fun, Wrestling is Art, Absolute Intense Wrestling, and Eastern Pennsylvania Wrestling Entertainment Underground, which he is currently the Underground US Champion. Tim is on twitter and tweets mostly about what he likes, hates, loves, and he will talk about anything at all. He is really nice. Also, he follows anyone if they ever talk about wrestling. Tim had a match against Michael Hutter at a Absolute Intense Wrestling show and lost. I really like Tim. I found out about this episode through Tim's twitter account.
I don't know when there will be more episodes, but it might be within the next few months or so.
