At DCA Redemption, Tyler King "walked out" on Gage Grayson early on in the Tag Team Championship match, but it was only a setup for Gage to lay down for D.N. Allen, giving The Change the DCA Tag Team Championship, and marking The Bladerunners' alliance with The Change. Later, it would be explained that The Change paid off The Bladerunners so they would throw the match.
A few weeks later, it would be announced that due to contact disputes with Travis Brookside and D.N. Allen regarding a tour in japan, the DCA Tag Team Championships would be vacated and awarded to The Bladerunners.

However, in stage 3, King would lose his match, meaning he will compete for the IPW Legendary Championship! During the first Legendary Championship battle royal, King would lose to the eventual winner, Evan O'Shea.
On April 13th, 2014, both King and Grayson who made his debut with IPW were participant in a battle royal to determine the #1 Contender to the Legendary Championship. Gage was eliminated by the eventual winner of the match, Tony Vegas and King made it to the final three, before being shockingly eliminated by Inspector Shetty. The match would eventually be won by the debuting Tony Vegas.
