HistoryEdit

Jawboys

Two of the Jawbreakers team members performing on the ring

The Jawbreakers, or at least their current team captain Candy, come from the city of Jawnair, a South American city located on the southeastern coast. The four original members of the Jawbreakers, Candy, Tidbit, Mouthful and Tongue Twister, were involved in professional marble wrestling. They competed in lucha marbre leagues, including the popular Extreme Lucha Marbre Championship. Here, Candy was known as "King Candy, the Jawbreaker", and was one of the elite four of the league, along with his original teammates. In fact, the four became such fierce rivals for many years, leading to distaste for each other at times.

The four were all famous as individual wrestlers, but made headlines in 2010 when they competed together in an exhibition race as part of the Surculo in Numerun Antigua. The race was a short sand race down the Colina Umerun by teams from other sports leagues to raise money for the preservation of the old city center. Thousands of their fans from across Central and South America had petitioned the ELMC to allow the elite four to compete as a team. After many signatures, the four applied together, using Candy's nickname for their team, the Jawbreakers.

The Jawbreakers did really well in the race, despite their lack of synergy. Much to everyone's surprise, they came third. Even more surprising was that the race was won by a group of BASE jumpers who nearly overslept after going out the night before. That team later retired from their sport and joined the Surculo as the Jungle Jumpers. The race showed that the four Jawbreakers team members had more in common than they thought, and so they, determined to beat the Jungle Jumpers, decided to participate in the Surculo.

The Jawbreakers eventually managed to beat their rivals as they won the 2015 Surculo championship. When Marble League 2016 was announced, the Surculo was offered three places for the top three teams. The Jawbreakers accepted the invitation, and were joined by the runners-up, the Rojo Rollers, while the fourth-placed Jungle Jumpers declined the invite as they expressed a desire to compete in the Surculo once more.

The Jawbreakers started off Marble League 2016 by coming joint 11th in the first event, Balancing, getting the same score as the Thunderbolts. This was followed by two back-to-back silver medals in the next two events, Relay Race and Collision, taking them into 2nd overall. A fourth place finish for Candy in Event 4, Sand Rally, saw the team drop to 3rd overall. Unfortunately, the team didn't do well for the rest of the competition, earning only three more points, one in High Jump and two in Team Pursuit. The team finished in 7th overall.

During the offseason, the Jawbreakers underwent a major shakeup when Candy started to accuse his teammates of treating him poorly. Tidbit, Mouthful, and Tongue Twister resented his bossiness and left the team feeling bitter, hoping the team would do poorly. Candy decided to recruit Sugar, Sweet and Taffy from Jawnair's premier wrestling league. The new team competed in the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers. They overall had a mediocre performance, but a first place finish for Sugar in Sand Race was enough for the team to qualify in 11th place.

The Jawbreakers were optimistic going into Marble League 2017. However, the team had mainly middle of the pack finishes. They didn't manage to get onto the podium at all, with their closest finish being a fourth place finish for Taffy in Event 8, High Jump. The Jawbreakers finished the year in 13th place. During the offseason, Tidbit came back to Candy and apologized to him for all their arguments in the past. Much to his relief, Candy forgave Tidbit and gave him a spot in the team as reserve member.

Hoping to make up for their disappointing performance last year, the Jawbreakers competed in the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers. Seeded into Group A, the team once again had mainly mid-table finishes. Unfortunately, they had to miss out on Marble League 2018 after a seventh place finish in the final event, Halfpipe. After watching the competition from the stands, they took part in the Marble League 2018 Consolation Race, where Taffy came in 10th.

The Jawbreakers continued to falter in the next two offseason event. Sugar DNF'd in the 100 Meter Water Race, and the team came 10th in the Amazing Maze Marble Race, where they were able to finish in second in their group, only to be eliminated in the group runners-up standings. The team were starting to doubt their recent performances.

Because of this, the Jawbreakers were not expected to do well in the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers. Indeed, they failed to come above 12th in any of the events, and finished in 17th overall, failing to qualify for Marble League 2019. It became clear that the Jawbreakers were not the same as their 2016 form. In fact, former team members had been wishing bad luck upon the team ever since they left the team.

Once the Marble League Showdown was announced, the Jawbreakers decided to reconcile. They acquired Gummy as their coach and appointed Candy as team captain as they started training for the Marble League Showdown 2019. The team had a strong start to the Showdown, with Candy winning a gold medal in Sand Rally, their first medal in over two years.

Unfortunately, the Jawbreakers could not keep this new form up and finished every subsequent event within the bottom half. Thankfully though, they were still able to qualify for the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers, finishing fifth in the Showdown. Candy admitted that his team needed a breakthrough after having failed to qualify for the Marble League for the last two years, and was already on the right way to make it. The team had since been convinced to improve their performance and keep pushing.[3]
