MrBeast and his quest through PogChamps

Tectone “a goddamn gladiator” according to himself, was a little too overconfident before his match-up against the YouTuber. The Genshin Impact player went as far as saying, “the damage I’m going to inflict to you is going to be irreparable. We’re going to change your name from MrBeast to the ‘Victim’.” But little did Tectone know what he was in for.
