Huke was unexpectedly benched by 2020 champions Dallas Empire just five weeks ago. “We haven’t been seeing the same level of consistency as a team,” head coach Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan explained shortly after news broke.
“With Stage 4 starting, we decided to make the tough call and bring Teej back and improve upon where we last left off with him.” Watch this space to stay updated with further information.
