|The Daywalkers in action|

Through the years, vampires have been a part of professional wrestling. You'd be hard pressed to find a more popular group of vampires than the Brood. Gangrel (who wrestled at one time as the Vampire Warrior) led a young Edge and Christian through the goth gimmick in their early days in the WWE. Then there's Kevin Throne and Ariel who were part of the wave during the WWECW days. Vampiro was in on the act too as WCW's resident nightwalker.
Earlier this year, Gangrel was part of a Wrestling Is Intense show and created a new breed of vampires. Matt Cage and Alex Castle have been a big part of the independent wrestling scene, especially here in my region of southern Illinois. Collectively they were known as The Kentucky Buffet. But one bite from Gangrel and the duo became known as the Daywalkers. Alexandre Barnabus Castle and Mathias Cage made it to the second round of the Chikara Tag World Grand Prix in 2013 the night after their encounter with Gangrel.
