  • In The Beginning:
  • Nick Berk formed a faction early in his career with Trent Acid, Johnny Kashmere, and Billy Reil known as "D-Sex"..

    Nick Berk wrote:The D-Sex gimmick was a rip off of D-X. It was my idea, but Billy Reil and Trent Acid took it and used it as their own in Jersey All Pro Wrestling as a tag-team. Then I joined after a few shows of them using the name. Soon after that, we had Johnny Kashmere as part of the group. It was our "clique" of wrestlers that always traveled and hung out together. It was intended to be significant to the fans as a group of younger generation wrestlers, who did seem to be the ones who caught the eyes of the females in the crowds of the shows, and we knew it, and were plenty cocky about that situation.
