(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew: This match is underway as Ryan immediately takes down Aren with a big lariat! Oasis charges forward with big dropkick that sends Ryan reeling into the ropes! Ryan looking to use the momentum off the ropes as he comes charging back with a full head of steam! BIG LARIAT FROM OASIS CONNECTS AS RYAN IS DROPPED! Oasis reaches down and pulls Aren right back to his feet as he looks to send him out of the ring! Aren turns it around as he reverses and send Oasis into the ropes instead.. Aren comes charging and NAILS Oasis with a brutal dropkick right off the mouth! Oasis goes straight over the ropes and barely manages to land on his feet on the outside as he clutches the apron to keep him up! Aren uses the ropes to launch himself forward with a powerful baseball slide into Oasis! Oasis goes crashing hard into the barricade on the outside as Aren quickly gets back to his feet and charges off the ropes!! SUICIDE DIVE! AREN’S STOPPED WITH A BOOT TO THE SKULL FROM RYAN SAVAGE! That’ll scramble your eggs as Aren quickly finds himself in the nearest corner of the ring and desperately trying to get back to his feet! RYAN CHARGES!
Mercer: CANNONBALL SENTON! NOBODY’S HOME AS AREN MANAGES TO PULL HIMSELF OUT TO THE APRON AS RYAN CRASHES INTO THE CORNER! Oasis back in the ring and immediately targets the downed Ryan! BIG BASEBALL SLIDE CONNECTS RIGHT INTO THE SKULL OF SAVAGE! The National Elite Champion pulls himself up to his feet on the apron as Ryan remains in this precarious position! AREN SLINGSHOTS HIMSELF IN! AND NAILS RYAN WITH A POWERFUL DROPKICK RIGHT INTO THE MID-SECTION! Aren quickly back up–BOOT CONNECTS RIGHT OFF THE SIDE OF THE SKULL FROM OASIS! Aren goes falling to the outside through the ropes after that brutal boot while Oasis looks to potentially end this as he drags a damaged Ryan Savage out of the corner and drops down for the pin!
Matt: The pin is broken up JUST after the one count as Oasis is dragged to the outside by his feet! Oasis is immediately bombarded by an even more fired up Aren Mstislav who unloads with a flurry of lefts and rights and kicks! Oasis just plows through Aren’s offense with a sickening headbutt off the skull of the National Elite Champion!! Aren’s looking dazed and confused here! Oasis swings–It’s blocked by Aren! Aren with a high kick off the skull of Oasis! Oasis attempts another powerful right hand, but it’s stopped dead in its tracks by a boot off the face from Aren! A lariat from Aren connects, but the InterWire Champion remains on his feet! Aren grabs Oasis by his hair and pulls him in for a flurry of forearms right off the face! Oasis is at the disadvantage here, but he’s fighting back the best he can with shots of his own into the body of Aren! WATCH OUT!! RYAN SAVAGE LEAPS THE TOP ROPE OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A HUGE SENTON ONTO BOTH MEN!!!
Stew: And just like that, all three of these fighting Champions are down and out here on the outside! Ryan Savage may not exactly be in control after that, but he certainly knows how to pick his opportunities, at least! He managed to take out both of his opponents, but he needs to capitalize if he wants to win this! Ryan slowly rising back to his feet here on the outside as he uses the apron to aid him… He reaches down and drags Aren slowly back up to his feet.. Ryan sends the National Elite Champion rolling back into the ring before he goes searching underneath the ring! Hold on… Ryan seems confused… I don’t think there’s any weapons available under there! This match may be no disqualifications, but it seems as though Quality Control has taken care of any instruments of torture one can usually find underneath the ring! Ryan shaking his head… But he doesn’t seem to give a damn as he grabs a hold of the top of the steel steps and rips them off! He throws them right over the ropes and into the ring! He grabs the bottom of the steps and slides them into the ring now! Ryan pushes over the workers over here by our table as he picks up every steel chair he can get his hands on and throws them into the ring! The Pure Champion showing he’s not abiding by the new EAW as he fills the ring with weapons! Ryan climbs up on the apron with Aren in his sights–
Mercer: OASIS PULLS RYAN’S FEET OUT FROM UNDER HIM FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! Ryan drops on the back of his skull on the apron before Oasis drags him off and lays into the Pure Champion! Ryan doing all he can to fight back here on the outside as Aren slowly rises to his feet and sees a golden opportunity of his own! Oasis with clubbing blows to the spine of Ryan as Aren charges off the ropes! SUICIDE DIVE!!! RYAN PULLS AWAY FROM OASIS’ GRIP AND DODGES AT THE LAST SECOND AS AREN COLLIDES WITH THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION!! OASIS CRASHES SPINE–FIRST INTO OUR TABLE!! Ryan Savage is visibly in pain here, but he’s pushing through it as he sees a great chance to take advantage! Ryan climbs up to the apron as Aren slowly rises back up… CANNONBALL SENTON!! Aren’s quick enough to dodge it as the Pure Champion crashes and burns on the mat! A damaged Ryan scrambles back to his feet! BIG BOOT OFF THE FACE OF RYAN FROM AREN! Ryan reeling into the barricade as Aren comes charging! DROPKICK INTO THE FACE OF RYAN FROM AREN!! Ryan’s looking dazed and confused here! Aren back up with momentum at his back as he comes charging a third time! RYAN EXPLODES FORWARD! HE SENDS AREN UP! POP-UP POWERBOMB CONNECTS RIGHT ON THE MAT!!
Matt: Incredible strength from the Pure Champion as a damaged Savage falls back against the barricade to prop himself up! He needs to think of something to capitalize and quick! Both of his opponents are down! Ryan looks to have something in mind here as he stumbles over to the National Elite Champion and pulls him up… PICKING HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! COULD BE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER POWERBOMB HERE, BUT AREN’S FIGHTING IT! Aren knows this could be the end if he lets it happen as he sends fist after fist after fist into the skull of Ryan! Look at this! Ryan’s legs are starting to wobble! He may not–SPEAR!!! SCOTT OASIS SPEARS BOTH MEN THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!!! WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?!! THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET FOR THESE THREE COMPETITORS AS THEY’VE BROKEN THROUGH THE BARRICADE AND SPILLED OUT INTO THE FIRST FEW ROWS!!
Stew: Scott Oasis came out of left field with that devastating Spear into Ryan Savage and managed to simultaneously take out Aren as well, but that’s not enough! He needs to keep it going! Take advantage! Oasis finds himself surrounded by this packed crowd as he climbs back up to a vertical base… He’s up and immediately picks up a fan’s chair! Oasis folds it up and SMACKS IT OFF THE SPINE OF RYAN SAVAGE! ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT OFF THE SPINE OF RYAN! Ryan Savage desperate to get out of this as he attempts to get up to his feet as quickly as possible! OASIS SWINGS THAT CHAIR RIGHT OFF THE SKULL OF SAVAGE!! The laceration Ryan suffered at Road To Redemption reemerging here as blood streams down his face following that shot to the face! Oasis drags the Pure Champion up with cruel intentions… SNAP SUPLEX CONNECTS INTO SEVERAL CHAIRS OF THE FANS AS THEY MOVE OUT OF THE WAY!! Oasis looks like a madman here! He’s still not finished with Savage as he drags him right back up… PULLING HIM IN AND SETTING HIM UP FOR A PILEDRIVER!!! A CHAIR BOUNCES OFF THE SKULL OF SCOTT OASIS!! Aren Mstislav back in this match as he picks up another chair while a dazed Oasis manages to stay on his feet! AREN LAUNCHES ANOTHER CHAIR OFF THE SKULL OF SCOTT!!
Mercer: Look at this! Look at the resilience of Scott Oasis as he remains firmly on his feet, doing all he can to fight losing his balance! Aren picks up another stray chair! HE THROWS IT INTO THE FACE OF OASIS!!! LOOK AT THIS–THE CHAIR WRAPS AROUND THE SKULL OF OASIS!! HE’S STILL ON HIS FEET!! AREN CHARGES! CONFORMITY OF THE MASSES!!!! BRUTAL RUNNING SINGLE LEG HIGH KNEE CONNECTS INTO THAT CHAIR-WRAPPED FACE OF SCOTT OASIS!! HE MAY BE OUT COLD!! Oasis falls back through the broken barricade as Aren tries to get back up–He’s pulled back up by Ryan Savage! Ryan somehow back in this as he’s got a hold of Aren! Aren quickly turns it around on Ryan as he whips him into the nearest ringpost! AREN WITH A BOOT TO THE SKULL OF RYAN, SANDWICHING HIS SKULL AGAINST THE POST! Aren immediately grabs a hold of Ryan and sends him rolling back into the ring! Ryan’s still bleeding as he tries anything he can to help him back to a vertical base while Aren slides in and stalks his opponent, looking to end this! Ryan’s up! AREN CHARGES! CONFORMITY OF THE MASSES!!!! RYAN CATCHES HIM!! HE CHARGES FORWARD?!! TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB!!! A BIG TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB CONNECTS ON AREN AS HE SLUMPS DOWN INTO THE CORNER!! Ryan may have just saved this match for himself!!
Matt: HE NEEDS TO FINISH THIS! AREN IS RIPE FOR THE PICKING! SAVAGE BACKING UP… HE CHARGES! COMING AT HIM LIKE A LOCOMOTIVE!! CANNONBALL SENTON!! AREN ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AS RYAN CRASHES INTO THE CORNER WITH GREAT FORCE! Ryan struggles to pull himself out of the corner as a damaged Aren pulls himself back up to his feet! HE PULLS RYAN UP FROM BEHIND! BACKDROP DRIVER CONNECTS ONTO THE STEEL STEPS IN THE RING!! Ryan falls off of the steps and does everything he can to get back up!! A BLOODIED RYAN MANAGES TO PULL HIMSELF BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS AREN LEAPS OVER THE STEPS! CONFORMITY OF THE MASSES!!!! IT CONNECTS!! IT CONNECTS AS AREN GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!!……….. THREE!!!
Stew: NO–AREN DRAGGED TO THE OUTSIDE?! KICK TO THE GUT FROM OASIS! OASIS IS STILL IN THIS SOMEHOW AS HE PULLS AREN IN!! PILEDRIVER!!!! A DEVASTATING PILEDRIVER CONNECTS RIGHT ONTO THE MAT ON THE OUTSIDE!! Aren had this match finished, but Scott Oasis refuses to stay down!

DARKER THAN BLACK CONNECTS ON A STEEL CHAIR AS RYAN GOES FOR THE IMMEDIATE COVER!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……. TWO!!!!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Black Mask” by Revolution Dominion plays all throughout the arena as the Referee raises a downed Ryan Savage’s right hand in victory)
Announcer: The Winner of this contest by pinfall!!….. RYAN SAAAAAAAVVVVVVVVAAAAAAAGGGGEEEEEE!!!!
Mercer: You know, for the Pure Champion, this guy plays really dirty!
Stew: Well it’s all fair here in a match like this and what a match it was! All three of these young Champions put on one HELL of a battle and proved why they’re each a Champion! The brutal battle Aren Mstislav went through in the Elimination Chamber may have very well played a part in his loss tonight, but all that’s for certain is that Ryan Savage is the victor!
Mercer: Well, definitely a hard fought match from all three competitors. I’d much rather take Aren or Scott, but I suppose Ryan Savage at least managed to capture a win for Voltage here tonight.
(A roar sounds all throughout the arena as “Revolution Dominion” stops playing)
Stew: What on Earth…
(“Battle Cry” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as Ares Vendetta makes his way out to the stage and down the ramp, flanked by the Agents of Extreme)
Mercer: Hold the phone! It looks like we’ve been honored with the presence of the “New Don” himself, Ares Vendetta!
Stew: What business does he have out here?
Mercer: Ares seems to have stopped the Official on the outside and… He takes the Pure Championship from him! Could this mean what I think it means?! Ares quickly enters the ring and seems to definitely be eying the Pure Championship in his hands as he stands over a damaged and bloodied Ryan Savage… Ares with a smile on his face just looking at that Championship… And he slowly lays it down on the canvas, looking at it one last time before taking his leave? I’m not sure exactly what he’s thinking, but it seems clear that he’s got the Pure Championship in his sights as he doesn’t even remotely glance at the Champion, Ryan Savage…
Stew: Well, Ryan grabs at his Pure Championship and looks at the sight of a rather strange individual in Ares Vendetta as he makes his way back up the ramp without a word…
Mercer: I hope this means what I think it means. Maybe Voltage can have a Pure Champion it can be proud of, finally.
(A confused Ryan Savage watches Ares Vendetta walk away as the camera fades to commercial)
( EAW 2k15 the video game commercial )
( Feed returns to the mic’d up crystal glass podium on the stage where several awards are shelved )
Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the first award given out tonight… is the EXTREMIST OF THE YEAAR AWARD!! … Here to give this out is the 2010 Extremist Of The Year and CURRENT Voltage General Manager.. YYYY 2222 IMPACT!!
( “Twisted Transistor” by Korn hits as Y2Impact comes out in a posh suit and walks up to the podium with a smirk )
Impact: This award is the most prestigious award in EAW history. Next to the Hall of Fame ring, this trophy represents utter dominance over the Land of Elite, previously named Extreme. What makes this particular award even more prestigious is that it is the LAST Extremist of the Year Award, emphatically ending a prosperous but soon redundant chapter in wrestling history to make way for even more vast frontiers ahead.
It is my distinct pleasure to announce the nominees…
( The Extremist of the Year nominees appear on the screen and Impact announces their names as highlights of them this year appear : Hades The Hellraiser, Mr. DEDEDE, Mikado Sekaiichi, Jacob Senn, Xavier Williams and Tyler Parker. Camera returns back to Imp )
Impact: The winner is…
( Impact opens the envelope, and smirks )
Impact: As I expected, THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, MR. DEDEDE!
( “Sirius” by The Alan Parsons Project hits as Mr. DEDEDE comes out in a suit, shades and the WHC over his shoulder with the WHCrown on his head as she approaches the podium and stares off with Impact. The two reluctantly shake hands and Imp walks off as DDD takes the podium and holds up the Extremist of the Year trophy )
Mr. DEDEDE: 8 or 9 weeks ago I introduced the God Contract and told you all I was God. 8 weeks later. Still God. Six months ago I hit the Zenith Star Press, won Battle of the God’s and became World Heavyweight Champion. Six months later, still World Heavyweight Champion. Six years ago I stood in this very same place as I accepted my award as the 2008 Extremist of the Year. Six years later, still Extremist of the Year.
Are you beginning to notice the pattern now? Do you now see the difference between every other man who’s called themselves a God in that ring, and myself? Of course you do! Because I’m a breed of my own! I represent a class of my own! I REPRESENT DOMINANCE! TWO EXTREMIST OF THE YEARS, DOMINANCE! 5 WORLD TITLE REIGNS, DOMINANCE! 5 PAIN FOR PRIDE VICTORIES, DOMINANCE! 6 MONTHS WORLD CHAMPION, DOMINANCE!
You want to know why I’m aptly named the Eye in the Sky? It’s because every time you look up in the Land of Extreme, Elite, whatever you want to name it.. every time you look up, you see me. And for the longest I’ve been that glass ceiling to so many people. But I’m not a glass ceiling anymore. I’M A CONCRETE CEILING. REINFORCED CONCRETE CEILING, AND NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO GO THROUGH ME! NOT IN ONE PIECE! And THERE IS nothing beyond me! THERE IS no higher echelon than mine! I made it my friends, I’ve reached the impossible goal. I’ve made it to the mountain top and I see everything around me… and it gets quite lonely when everything around me is BELOW ME.
So this goes out especially to the ones in the back who one day want to take my spot. There’s a rule set in place that goes to everyone who wants my crown. If you want to be the guy who breaks the concrete ceiling, you’re more than welcome to try. Just make sure you do it. As a wise man once said; you come at the king, you best not miss. Just ask Mikado Sekaiichi. Ask my opponents in the Elimination Chamber. Ask the man who presented this award to me, Y2Impact, hell, ask anyone. Every war I’ve stepped into, I’ve walked away the winner. I’ve always gotten the last laugh. And I’m living proof that he who laughs laugh, laughs best.
( “Sirius” picks back up and DEDEDE lifts up his trophy before leaving through the back )
( Camera fades backstage where Zack Crash and Showdown General Manager are seen in the Chairman’s office, discussing next week’s shows… )
Crash: So… you won’t be on tour with Showdown next week, when we begin to go overseas?
Murrow: That is correct.
Crash: Alright, run this through me again. What is so important that you are leaving Showdown General Manager-less?
Murrow: Let’s just call it a… business trip. One that can be very, very productive towards our campaign. One that I hope leads to… DRASTIC measures. And a MASTERFUL signing for the Showdown roster. But I sadly need to go on the west coast to close this deal out, and considering the roster will be in Russia… you can see where this complicates things.
Crash: Is this who we spoke of before?
Crash: Bold… very bold. But needed. I’m interested. So what happens next week, shall we name your assistant interm-GM for next week – Maria, is it?
Murrow: That is her name… yes, but no, I have a better idea.
Crash: Is that so?
Murrow: Yes… for, well… it looks as if our rule has been in question for quite some time. I know neither of us truly cares for the perception of opinions of others, but it is definitely counter-productive to just combat it with negligence. So I’m going to give my roster EXACTLY what they want next week, and show to them… men like me, and you, are needed to keep this company afloat.
Crash: Go on.
Murrow: I’d like to label next week’s Showdown… “Anarchy”… where, the roster does whatever they like, whatever they may, for 2 hours next weekend. No rule. They have to schedule their own matches. See it as a… temperamental experiment. Let us see if Showdown can truly turn into Chaos under my leave… as I suspect they may. But perhaps they surprise me, perhaps matches are scheduled, the fans entertained, and no barbaric nature is showcased under the new era of Elite. It shall be quite the spectacle.
Crash: We shall see, indeed. Well… looks as if you best get going. You have my permission to leave early for the holidays. See you in two weeks… and be sure to do whatever it takes to close that deal out. I’d like nothing more than to see our mutual friend as an ambassador for the new era of Elite.
( Murrow gets up out of his seat, and shakes hands with Crash. )
Murrow: Don’t you worry… I won’t be coming home empty handed. See you in two weeks.
( Camera cuts back to the middle of the ring. )
(DING! DING! DING!)
RA: The following contest is scheduled for one fall……AND IT IS A NUMBER ONE’S CONTENDER’S MATCH FOR THE VIXENS CHAMPIOOOOOOONSHHIIPPPPP!!!
(“Seven Devils” by Florence and The Machine hits, as Cherish makes her way down to the stage, with a sadistic smile across her face)
RA: Introducing first, from Raleigh, North Carolina, weighing in at 118 pounds…..CCCCCCHHHHHHEEEEEEERRRRRRRIIIIIIISSSSSSSHHHHHHH!!
Mercer: (no) She still hasn’t been cured.
Ryder: You guys probably know the drill that I dig crazy chicks.
Stew: She may be crazy, she may not be the average Vixen, but she is one of the most dynamic women to ever step a foot in a ring. She’s a veteran, she knows the route, and she might finally find the answer tonight to get closer towards that Vixens Championship.
Mercer: As I said, she is crazy. After this match, whether I tie her in a rope, she is going to a psychological hospital.
Ryder: Nah, that’s my job.
(“Give It Up To Me” by Shakira hits, as Ariana Lopez makes her way down the stage in very, tight lingerie.)
RA: Making her way down the ring, from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 118 pounds……THE LATIN GODDESS…………AAARRRIIIAAANNNAAA LLOOOPPEEEZZZZZ!!
Mercer: :O Holy damn…
Stew: Stew Jr can’t handle this…
(Cherish is shown sitting down in the middle of the ring, as she stares down the approaching Ariana. As Ariana gets her hand on the ropes, Cherish immediately gets up and walks towards her. Ariana gets down and walks around the ring to the commentary booth, with Matt Ryder standing in awe as he is handed a white note by Ariana.)
Ryder (looking at Mercer and Stew): I TOLD YOU GUYS I WAS A CATCH!
Mercer: It must be a Christmas miracle, must be….
Stew: The spicy, sizzling Ariana Lopez has been quite the bomb sensation as of late in EAW. Her looks, charm, attractiveness, some say her sneak and feisty tactics might actually give her a shot to becoming the next Vixens Champion.
Ryder: I don’t know, I don’t care, she just gave me her phone number! So while you guys go back home to your boring, miserable lives, I will be diving into that.
(Ryder laughs as he quickly unscrambles the paper, and it reads “NOPE” in huge letters. Ryder opens his mouth wide, as he slowly sits down on his seat, putting on his headset.)
Mercer: Nuff said.
(“2 On” by Tinashe ft. Schoolboy Q hits, as a jumpy Maddie runs down the ramp, giving high-fives to the fans in attendance)
RA: Introducing next, from Tampa Bay, Florida, weighing in at 125 pounds, MMMMAAAAAADDDIIIIIEEEEEEEE!!!
Ryder (angrily): This chick is on drugs, that’s it.
Stew: You mad bro?
Mercer: You know what, Maddie produces some sought of energy and vibe whenever she walks into the ring. She is just so lovable, caring, peaceful, almost like a human pillow.
(Ryder and Stew both look across at Mercer)
Stew: Besides that….., she is also a favorite in this match, with her momentum spawning huge within EAW! I can see it now…Lethal versus Maddie….Baddie vs. Goodie….(goo)
(“ZenkaiHero” by Alice Juban hits, as a rampant Haruna Sakazaki storms her way down the ramp, with a vicious look at her opponents)
RA: Lastly, from Akihabara, Japan, weighing in at 110 pounds……HHHHAAARRRRUUUUNNNNAAAAA SSSSAAAAKKKKAAAAZZZAAAKKKKIIIIIIII!!!
Ryder: Now that is a woman out there! Screw Ariana, Haruna got this right here in the bag. She is just like me, we both tend to look like the cool kids from across the street, but when he get in the street, our minds change. She is going to be the difference maker right here.
Stew: That must be the most insightful thing that you’ve said this year.
Ryder: Thank you.
Mercer: He was being sarcastic, fool.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Mercer: All four Vixens are all in the ring together, fighting just to get their hands on the Vixens Championship, currently being held by Lethal. Cherish, Ariana, Maddie and Haruna are all staring down at each other, each knowing that a win right here could change everything in their careers completely.
Stew: And look at this! Maddie is jumping up and down like a pogo-stick! She hugs Ariana and Haruna! What the hell is going on with her?
Ryder: Ariana and Haruna are completely enraged as they give a smug look at Maddie. Maddie turns around to see Cherish already opening up her hands, and she go–
Mercer: HARUNA AND ARIANA ARE BEATING DOWN MADDIE TO THE MAT! THIS IS A TWO-ON-ONE ASSAULT! CHERISH LAUGHS CRAZILY AS SHE SNEAKS HER WAY BEHIND THE ACTION! HARUNA AND ARIANA DOUBLE-TEAMING HERE, TRYING TO ELIMINATE THE MOST DANGEROUS OUT OF THIS EQUATION! Haruna backs a few steps back, and….
Ryder: WAIT! CHERISH CATCHES HER OFF-GUARD, AND SHE ROLLS HARUNA OVER! CHERISH GOING FOR THE VICTORY ROLL HERE! WHAT???!!!!!!!
Mercer: AND HARUNA KICKS OUT AT THE LAST DIRE SECOND! HOLY DAMN!
Ryder: Cherish nearly stealing the win out of nowhere! Immediately, Ariana and Haruna now double-teaming all on Cherish! Stomping and punching is all that these two are seem to be doing! Cherish’s body is literally being covered with footprints as she continues to get scarred…
Stew: WAIT! MADDIE KIPS UP ON HER FEET, TO A ROAR FROM THE CROWD! THIS CROWD HAS JUST GOT BACK TO LIFE IMMEDIATELY! MADDIE RUNS OVER TO ARIANA, AND SHE SPINS HER AROUND….BITCH SLAP RIGHT TO THE FACE OF ARIANA! ARIANA HOLDS HER FACE IN AWE, AND SHE GRITS HER TEETH WITH ANGER! SHE RUSHES TOWARDS MADDIE……..BUT MADDIE DUCKS…..A QUICK GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS AS ARIANA BOUNCES ON THE MAT! THIS ISN’T MADDIE! HER FACE, HER ATTITUDE HAS CHANGED COMPLETELY! MADDIE GRABS ARIANA BY THE HAIR, AND SHE DRAGS HER AND TOSSES HER STRAIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! ARIANA FALLS DOWN FLAT TO THE MAT!
Mercer: HARUNA IS STILL UNLOADING AT THE DOWNED CHERISH! HARUNA TRIES TO RAISE CHERISH UP ON HER FEET…..BUT CHERISH ELBOWS HER TO THE FACE! AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! HARUNA LOSES HER GRIP ON CHERISH, AND SHE FINALLY BREAKS FREE! HARUNA NOW DRIVES TOWARDS CHERISH………CHERISH DUCKS QUICKLY……..SUPERKICK CONNECTS! HARUNA JUST TOOK HER LAST BREATH AS HE HITS THE MAT HARD! CHERISH TO GO FOR THE PIN! NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER!
Ryder: BUT MADDIE GRABS THE LEGS OF CHERISH AND PULLS HER AWAY! SHE NOW GOES DOWN TO HARUNA, AND SHE GOES HER WAY FOR THE PIN!
Stew: PIN BROKEN BY CHERISH! SHE GRABS THE FEET OF MADDIE, AND TOSSES HER AWAY! Haruna rolls herself out of the ring holding her face, whilst Cherish and Maddie both have a staredown at each other! CHERISH HEADBUTTS MADDIE TO THE STOMACH! CHERISH GRABS HER HEAD, AND SHE KNOW FORGES KNEES UP ACROSS HER FACE! SHE VICIOUSLY TOSSES MADDIE’S HEAD DOWN, AND SMILES TO THE NEUTRAL CROWD! DAMN!
Ryder: But look at the top rope! A furious Ariana Lopez is on top of the turnbuckle, on top of the ring! Cherish has no idea of what’s going on! Cherish turns around……….ARIANA LOPEZ WITH A CROSSBODY! ARIANA CRASHES ON TOP OF CHERISH AND SHAKES HER LEGS, AS SHE SHOUTS AT THE REFEREE TO PIN!
Stew: NO! CHERISH KICKS OUT AT THE LAST DIRE MILLISECOND! ARIANA IS IN TOTAL DISBELIEF RIGHT NOW, AND SHE GETS UP AND SHOUTS ALL ABOUT TO THE REF! WAIT A SECOND! HARUNA SAKAZAKI MAKES HER WAY ON TOP OF THE ROPE! MADDIE IS SLOWLY MAKING HER WAY UP ON HER FEET, WHILE ARIANA IS STILL ARGUING WITH THE REF FROM BEHIND! HARUNA JUMPS OFF……..
Ryder: AND SHE JUMPS ON TOP OF ARIANA…….DIVING HURRICANRANA! HARUNA TWISTS AND TURNS ALL AROUND ARIANA! SHE IS GOING ROUND, AND AROUND, AND AROUND! HARUNA PUSHES ARIANA OFF WITH HER FEET, AND SHE CRASHES ONTO CHERISH! CHERISH MUST BE KNOCKED OUT! HER HEAD JUST COLLIDED WITH ARIANA’S WITH SUCH IMPACT!
Stew: Haruna now grabs Maddie, and drags her closer to the ropes. Haruna now springs up towards them, hoping to deliver something! She jumps off again……..LIONSAULT!!………..
Mercer: NO! MADDIE ROLLS HERSELF AWAY, AND HARUNA CRASHES TO THE MAT IN PAIN! MADDIE NOW RUNS TOWARDS THE CORNER OF THE RING, JUMPING UP AND DOWN WITH ANGER! SHE CHARGES TOWARDS THE RISING HARUNA………SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! THE SPEAR CONNECTS! HARUNA IS SENT CRASHING TO THE OPPOSITE TURNBUCKLE, AND THE CROWD IS LIVID! MADDIE IS ON FIRE! MADDIE RAISES HER FINGER INTO THE AIR, AND WE ALL KNOW WHERE SHE IS ABOUT TO GO….
Stew: MADDIE TURNS AROUND………AND SHE IS MET WITH A SPINNING BACK KICK BY ARIANA LOPEZ! BUT NO, MADDIE DUCKS AND COUNTERS WITH A GUTBUSTER! Ariana’s had the wind knocked out of her by that, and now Maddie climbs up the turnbuckle…. stands all the way up top and lets out a yell! MADDIE BOMB!!!! AND THE MOONSAULT OFF THE TOP CONNECTS, HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!
Ref: OOOOONEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!
Stew: CHERISH JUMPS INTO THE RING!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“2 On” by Tinashe ft. Schoolboy Q plays, as Maddie slowly makes her way up on her feet, breathing heavily as he fists pumps to the applauding crowd)
RA: And here is your winner……..AND THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE VIXENS CHAMPIONSHIP……..MMMMMMMMAAAAAAADDDDDDDIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
Ryder: WOW! Maddie, after being doubted from the very beginning, manages to lift herself right back in to high-gear with a very, VERY convincing win here tonight!
Mercer: Cherish, Haruna, and Ariana gave a really aerial display for us here tonight, showing attitude, strengths and class for us to bask in! Congratulations Maddie!
(Cherish is on one knee as she looks on at disgust at Maddie, who is on top of the rope cheering on)
Stew: Cherish came so close to saving this but it was no cigar. She meets either Lethal or Kendra Shamez, depending on the outcome later tonight!
(Camera pans over to Ariana Lopez making her way up the ramp, clutching her head hard, to Haruna who is blinking in disbelief, to Chelsea having a sadistic smile towards Maddie. Maddie jumps off the top ropes, and lands safely on the ground, to cheer on with her fans)
(A graphic for Stable of the Year is shown on the titantron and cameras before cutting to Pierre McGuire, who is again seen at the podium with an envelope in hand. )
Pierre: For a company that has been predicated on individual accolades… it’s actually quite interesting to go back into the sands of time, and realize the road to the Hall of Fame, more times than not… started with a little bit of chemistry. Not to go all Walter White here, but just look at the history with E.G.O. helping elevate Dark Demon and Cleopatra as dominating forces… Genesis making a name out of Hurricane Hawk. So tonight, with this thought in mind, EAW gladly presents: The 2014 Stable of the Year award. Let’s look at the nominees!
(Video plays; highlighting the works of Elite, Demon’s Council, RAGNAROK and the House of Renegades from this past year before cutting back to Pierre having issues opening the envelope.)
Pierre: And the 2014 Stable of the Year Award goes to… RAGNAROK!
( “Rains of Castamere” plays as the arena goes dark, with only the entrance stage being highlighted in the color of red as Psycho Brody, Lannister, and Norman Hellion make their way out from the curtain. Pierre smartly steps to the side as RAGNAROK take their place behind the podium. Brody picks up the award as Norman takes to the microphone. )
Norman: RAGNAROK. Many words can be affiliated with us, I suppose. Dominance. Destruction. Chaos. All of those might have some merit behind them, but the work of the three of us has been nothing short of sheer excellence. Anybody who thinks there is a more dangerous faction on the horizon needs to think again… for just look around, look at us. RAGNAROK is on top of the world, and could consume the entire Elite Answers Wrestling organization if they so pleased. In just a short amount of time… we have garnered respect, and have coupled it with shades of gold. Either it be my Answers World Championship… or Brody and Lannister’s EAW Tag Team Championships… it’s only a matter of what we want.
For what’s next, that I do not know, personally. Neither does Peter… neither do those standing beside me. I just know, me and my brothers are looking forward to 2015… and winning this very award, again next year.
( Norman Hellion steps back, as he gives a formal handshake to Lannister, before Lannister takes to the podium. )
Lannister: Lannister would first like to thank Elite for this award. For… Elite were quite the stepping stone for Lannister and his friends. Brian Danny, Devon Dublan, and Starz Stun tried their best… but in the end, RAGNAROK prevailed every single time. And the dominance showcased in the “rivalry” has been second to none in Lannister’s time here in EAW, he must say. And it was that sheer force, that Lannister thinks why he and his brethren are up here accepting this award now. Each man standing before you has a certain track record to they… and if not feared, definitely revered for their physical tenacity and stature. But put together? RAGNAROK… there is only just RAGNAROK. Everyone else… are simply, pretenders. And a pretender… simply cannot match up. RAGNAROK is the storm AND the fury… it’s just a matter of what terrain RAGNAROK would like to reckon upon next. Lannister… Brody… Norman… all send their regards. On this side or the other.
( Lannister steps off the podium, as he asks Brody if he’d like to say anything to the audience, who hesitantly steps up. )
Brody: The voices tell me… FOR RAGNAROK!
( Brody quickly steps off the stage, as Pierre rushes up to the podium before the three of them can leave. )
Pierre: Don’t leave yet, Mr. Hellion and Lannister! For we have a little surprise for you both! Congratulations on winning Stable of the Year… but you two have also won something else! Congratulations Norman, you have been named EAW Promoer of the Year!
( Pierre hands Norman Hellion the “Promoer of the Year” award, as Norman raises it into the air with a slight pop from the crowd. )
Pierre: Don’t think I forgot about you, Lannister! For it seems that the EAW audience believes you are destined for a great 2015… as you have won the “Next Up” award!
( Pierre hands Lannister the “Next Up” award, as Lannister snatches it into his hands and stares at it in marvel, before the three step towards one another, and raise their awards amongst one another. Lannister holds up his “Next Up” award, as Norman holds up his “Promoer of the Year”, with Brody carrying RAGNAROK’s “Stable of the Year” award… before the camera cuts back elsewhere. )
(The camera cuts back to the ring as we see the ring announcer standing in the middle of the ring.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
(“Revolution is My Name” by Pantera comes on as Christopher Corrupt walks out confidently as he looks to pick up a victory tonight.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from Toronto, Ontario, Canada… he weighs in at 240 pounds… CCCHHHRRRIIISSSTTTOOOPPPHHHEEERRR CCCOOORRRRRRUUUPPPTTT!!!
Stew: The number one contender to the National Elite Championship, Christopher Corrupt, is here in New Jersey to prove to the world that he is the future of this company!
Mercer: This man may has a sharp mind in that ring, uses every advantage he can get, but I think he uses that as an anchor too much and tonight, he stacks up with a huge challenge.
Ryder: I can tell you this, bro! This guy is going to have a huge challenge from what Showdown has in store for him!
(“Disengage The Simulator” by CKY blasts from the speakers as Zach Genesis runs out to the stage as he is hyped up for this bout.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, he is from Irving, Texas… weighing in at 210 pounds… ZZZAAACCCHHH GGGEEENNNEEESSSIIISSS!!!
Ryder: Here is the man that is going to pick up a victory for the brand of Showdown! Zach Genesis is one superb wrestler and he is going to pick up the W!
Mercer: This kid has got potential and heart and he is going to do everything to get past Corrupt and his conniving ways, but I think Corrupt may be too slick for him.
Stew: You tell them, Jake. Corrupt has the mental advantage, even with the heart that kid has. Just remember that when Corrupt gets the three-count, that I told ya so.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Mercer: The match kicks off as Corrupt and Genesis circle around the ring until they lock horns with one another as a test for strength until Corrupt spins around and does an arm wrench on Genesis! Genesis flips to reverse out of it and spins with the arm of Corrupt as he throws him with the arm drag! Corrupt lands flat on his back as he pops back up… RIGHT INTO A RUNNING KNEE FROM GENESIS! You could hear the pop from that all around the arena as the crowd just went ecstatic for that! Genesis looks on to the voracious crowd as he would have gone for the pin, but Corrupt was able to make it to the turnbuckle as he holds his face from that knee to his face!
Stew: Genesis bolts towards Corrupt as he looks for the turnbuckle dropkick… but Corrupt rolls out of the ring as Genesis crashes and burns into the bottom turnbuckle! Look at that sinister smile from Corrupt as it seems that was the plan he had in store for Genesis, while pointing at his brain. Corrupt walks over to the turnbuckle as he grabs the legs of Genesis as he pulls him groin-first into the turnbuckle post! That is something serious right there, guys! That is a pain that I know you never want to experience.
Ryder: Zach Genesis’ boys are down and they need medical attention! Hopefully, one of those Vixen’s in the back has a degree in nursing! Back to the match though, as Christopher Corrupt slams Genesis’ legs into the post and pulls them down towards the floor as he wraps them up…
FIGURE-FOUR ON THE TURNBUCKLE POST! You can see the agony coming from the face of Genesis as Corrupt is just wrenching that hold and scraping his legs against the post! Corrupt finally lets go of the hold before he gets disqualified and grabs the other leg as he slams it into the post and rolls back into the ring!
Mercer: Corrupt pulls Genesis out from the turnbuckle as he grabs hi– GENESIS ROLLS UP CORRUPT AS HE LOOKS FOR THAT SNEAKY CRADLE PIN!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Mercer: CORRUPT KICKS OUT AS HE ALMOST ALREADY LOST THE MATCH! Genesis and Corrupt are both trying to get to their feet, but Corrupt is up first as Genesis is feeling the effects of that turnbuckle post beatdown from earlier! Corrupt runs in as Genesis faces him, looking for the rolling forearm shot… but Genesis ducks it as he turns and jumps as he grabs the back of Corrupt’s head! JUMPING REVERSE DDT! Genesis covers Corrupt!
Stew: CORRUPT ROLLS GENESIS OVER AS HE LOOKS FOR HIS OWN PIN!!!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!..
Stew: GENESIS KICKS OUT AS CORRUPT GETS BACK TO HIS FEET! Genesis uses the ropes to try and get to his feet as Corrupt locks him in the waist-lock as he goes for the German suplex! Suplex connects as Corrupt spins around and goes for the second German suplex! Second suplex connects as he spins around once more as he goes for the hat trick! Third supl–NO! Genesis flips out and onto his feet as Corrupt, out of instinct, turns to Genesis to face him! Genesis springboards off the ropes and lands on Corrupt for the hurricanrana!
Ryder: WHOA! CORRUPT STOPS GENESIS FROM LANDING THE HURRICANRANA AS HE HOLDS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS! CORRUPT DOES A POWERBOMB AS HE GOES FOR THE PIN!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Ryder: GENESIS GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Corrupt slowly gets to his feet as he goes to the top rope and begins to set up for it! He gets to the top rope and looks down as he waves to the downed Genesis! Corrupt leaps from the top rope as he flies towards Genesis! THAT’S CLASSIC ELBOW DROP!!!
Mercer: NO! GENESIS ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AS CORRUPT LANDS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CANVAS! Genesis slowly reaches his feet as he walks over to Corrupt, showing some signs of hurt on his leg, as he grabs his leg! Genesis twists Corrupt’s legs as he spins him around! HE HAS IT LOCKED IN! IRVING’S INCISOR! THE KNEELING INVERTED SHARPSHOOTER! CORRUPT IS SCRATCHING AND SCREAMING FROM THE WAY HIS LEGS ARE TANGLED! HE IS DOING ALL HE CAN TO FIGHT OUT AND GRAB THE ROPES!
Stew: Corrupt is crawling, getting closer to the ropes, as Genesis begins to try and make the hold worse so he can get out! Corrupt continues to reach it… only fingertips away… BUT GENESIS PULLS CORRUPT BACK TO THE CENTER AND LOCKS THE KNEELING INVERTED SHARPSHOOTER BACK IN! Corrupt needs to figure out something quick or this match is going to be finished with a tapout!
Ryder: Corrupt begins to lift himself up as he tries to fight out of the hold! CORRUPT PULLS WITH HIS LEGS AND GOES FOR THE ROLL=UP PIN!!!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Ryder: GENESIS PUSHES CORRUPT OFF AS CORRUPT ROLLS TO HIS FEET! Genesis slowly gets to his feet, still favoring the right leg, as he turns to a kick to the stomach as Corrupt pulls him in! CORRUPT LIFTS HIM UP! MICHINOKU DRIVER II! CORRUPT CRUNCH CONNECTS!!! CORRUPT GOES BACK FOR THE PINFALL!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
Mercer: GENESIS KICKS OUT RIGHT BEFORE THE REFEREE LANDED THE COUNT! THIS MATCH IS STILL ALIVE FOLKS! Christopher Corrupt has a look of shock on his face as he thought that he had ended Zach Genesis right there! Corrupt gets to his feet and begins stomping the back of Genesis’ head as he lifts him by the head and pulls him under his arm! He lifts Genesis over his shoulder as he looks like he is going to hit it! CORRUPTED!!! THE COLT .45!!!
Stew: GENESIS SLIDES OFF OF CORRUPT AS CORRUPT TURNS AROUND OUT OF INSTINCT AS GENESIS LIFTS HIM OVER HIS SHOULDER! SOUTHERN COMFORT! T.K.O FROM ZACH GENESIS! AS HE ALMOST HITS T.K.O, CORRUPT SHOVES GENESIS OFF AS HE GRABS HIM FROM THE BACK OF THE HEAD! CORRUPT CRUSHER! THE INVERTED FACELOCK NECKBREAKER SLAM!!!
Ryder: GENESIS LANDS AN ELBOW TO THE JAW OF CORRUPT AS CORRUPT RELEASES THE HOLD! GENESIS QUICKLY TURNS AROUND AND LIFTS HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! DEAD MAN’S HAND!!! NO!!! CORRUPT ROLLS AND HOLDS ONTO GENESIS AS HE HOLDS HIS TIGHTS FOR THE ROLL-UP!!!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Revolution Is My Name” by Pantera plays in the background as Christopher Corrupt rolls out and raises his hands in celebration as Zach Genesis tries to chase him, but is met by the ropes.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… CCCHHHRRRIIISSSTTTOOOPPPHHHEEERRR CCCOOORRRRRRUUUPPPTTT!!!
Mercer: Christopher Corrupt has become victorious in this fight for supremacy between these two upcoming young stars!
Stew: Even though he is representing Dynasty, the man had to resort to cheating to win this match! He had Genesis by the tights!
Ryder: Bro, all is fair in EAW and tonight is no different! Corrupt did what he had to do to win and that is why tonight, he showed why he is the contender for the National Elite Champion.
(A graphic for EAW Champion of the Year is shown before camera cuts to the stage)
Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting the award for EAW Champion of the Year… he is the current EAW CHAMPION.. DIAMOND CAAAGEEE!!!
( “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana hits as Diamond Cage walks out to the podium carrying the EAW Championship to the roar of the audience. DC waits for the audience to settle down before adjusting the mic on the podium )
Diamond Cage: Is this thing on?
Crowd: DIAMOND CAGE! DIAMOND CAGE! DIAMOND CAGE!
Cage: Thank you! Thank you! I’m still pretty badly banged up from RTR so I couldn’t do much press this week, but for what its worth thanks for all your support. RTR was the biggest night of my life, bar none, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
So uhh, into the most unpredictable category in all of EAW Awards… EAW CHAMPION OF THE YEAR! The deck was pretty stacked for this one but let’s see who wins this thing…
( Cage opens the envelope and pulls out a card )
Cage: What? Weird, I thought for sure it’d be “Vacant”. JACOB SENN!
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uEOrsSqYkk comes on as Jacob Senn makes his way out to the podium and accepts the award. Cage pats him in the back and takes his leave and Senn gets up to the microphone.)
Jacob Senn: EAW Champion of the Year… that is the award I “won”. Let’s be honest here, this award was basically handed towards me. There was no other EAW World Champion this year except for Diamond Cage and he has just become the champion. The fact is that this award was handed to me and even though I am grateful to have won this award, I have not earned it. I want to prove that I am the best wrestler from the past, present and future of this company and I will get that opportunity. Dynasty is going to open up a new path towards my career, a new road to be taken, and I am going to make sure that it is a road that will lead me to greatness. Mark my words EAW Universe, Jacob Senn will reach the pinnacle again. I will conquer all who oppose me, even those who deem themselves God will be sent asunder by the Harmonic Divergence of the universe. I want what was taken from me… and I will have reclaim my throne once more.
(Jacob Senn takes the award and walks out as “My Demons” by Starset plays in the background.)
(A graphic for Comeback of the Year is shown before the camera cuts to Pierre McGuire up at the podium with an envelope and the EAW Award in hand)
Pierre: A wise man once said… “Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years.”, but tonight, we DO call it a comeback, because these select six individuals have gotten back up after they’ve fallen, one way or another. Some choose to stay down, but these particular men stood up and fought their way back to being top names in Elite Answers Wrestling. With this Award, we celebrate those who redeemed themselves when their spotlights were nearly faded. Here are the nominees for Comeback of the Year:
(Video plays; highlighting the work of Prince of Phenomenal, Vic Vendetta, Lucian Black, Kevin Devastation, Brian Daniels, and Devan Dubian from this past year before cutting back to Pierre as he opens the envelope)
Pierre: And the winner is….. VIC VENDETTA!
(“Nothing Left To Fear” by Slash plays all throughout the arena as an emotionless Vic Vendetta lumbers out to the stage with his hair still chopped up as he rips the Award from Pierre’s hand and pushes him out of his way before stepping up to the podium while his theme fades out)
Vic: People have been… Asking all the wrong questions of me. Questioning my sanity. Questioning my relationship with the likes of Ares Vendetta and the rest of our family. Questioning what they witnessed at the Road To Redemption.
(Vic looks at the Award in his hand as he continues)
Vic: The only question I’m here to answer tonight is what Vic Vendetta wants… And what he wants is something that this trophy won’t give me. What he wants isn’t something all the gold in all the World could give me. No Championships, no victories, no prestigious little accolades… Nothin’. I hadn’t known what I wanted – what I TRULY wanted – for a long, long time… But I think I finally realized what that was at the Road To Redemption when a man who had me at his mercy gave me a way out of this materialistic World. My nephew, Ares Vendetta, could have done anything he wanted; he could have caved my skull in, he could have flayed me in the middle of that ring, he could have even demeaned me by cutting this hair of mine himself against my will… But he didn’t. When I found myself able to breathe again and focused on whatever these two eyes of mine could see through the intense pain, what I saw was the glare of a pair of scissors clutched in his hand and heard those words… The words of my family… He said “On wrongs swift vengeance waits”, and left me to my own devices as he dropped those scissors before me. My family’s words. I needed nothing more. I took those scissors myself and I LOPPED off this hair of mine myself, because it’s but a small price to pay for what I’ve done! But now…
(Vic laughs to himself)
Vic: Now I intend to pay a much greater price in order to get back into the good graces of my family. I stepped onto the Road To Redemption with my own ambitions in mind, but that road has finally ended, and with it ends my selfishness and my greed! My ambitions are now for the sake of my family’s name! My ambitions are for the Vendetta name! My ambitions have become voices bouncing off the walls of my mind, and you know what they’re sayin’? They say… Take back what belongs to us… Take the crown… And I will do just that, when I become the King of Elite.
(Vic gives the camera a wicked smile with his dirty teeth before taking his leave as “Nothing Left To Fear” picks back up)
Announcer: The following contest is a inter branded 12 man tag team match up, scheduled for one fall!
(“Seven Nation Army (Glitch Mob Remix)” by White Stripes plays as team Showdown make their way to the ring)
Announcer: Introducing first, representing Showdown, the team of Ventura, Alex Anderson, El Landerson and Jordan Ciserano!!!!
Matt Ryder: THIS IS LIKE A DREAM TEAM RIGHT HERE! WE HAVE THE BIGGEST PROSPECT DYNASTY HAD IN VENTURA, THE ACE OF EAW IN ALEX ANDERSON, THE NONSTOP EXCITMENT OF EL LANDERSON AND WHO CAN FORGET THE LIVING LEGEND HIMSELF, JOHNNY CAGE!!!! IF I WERE ONE OF THE OTHER TWO TEAMS, I’D BE PISSING MYSELF RIGHT NOW!!!!
Jake Mercer: I feel bad for Eddie Mack having to listen to your nonsense every week. Do you actually believe those goons stand a chance? They’ll be lucky to even be able to keep up with Team Voltage!
(“Same Old War” by Our Last Night plays to team Dynasty making their way to the ring.)
Announcer: And their opponents, representing the Dynasty brand, they are the team of Jacob Senn, Donny Diamond, TLA, and Donuts!!!!!!!!!!
Stew: Forget about Showdown or Voltage, this is the team that’s coming out victorious tonight! We have a new comer in Donuts who picked up an absolutely impressive victory in his debut, a new and improved TLA, Donny Diamond who’s been making some noise with his running mate The Nas and then we have the former EAW Champion, Jacob Senn, a man who is definitely looking to redeem himself following his loss in the Chamber last week! All four of these men want nothing more than to win here tonight!
Jake Mercer: Meh, they’re all a bunch of scrubs if you ask me.
(“Rules of Nature” by Jamie Christopherson plays as team Voltage makes its way to the ring.)
Announcer: And their opponents, representing the Voltage brand, they are the team of Hades the Hellraiser, Lannister, Lochlan Rossdale and J.P Caliban!!!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: YES! Here comes the real stars of this match up!!!!! Those other teams won’t stand with the likes of these guys around! This team possesses the perfect combination of strength, experience and pure wrestling, something that many of their opponents lack! This match is as good as our I tell ya!
Stew: We’ll see about that.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Matt Ryder: Here we go broskis, it’s time for 12 man tag team brand warfare! All 12 men are crowding in the ring with their respective teams, looking over the competition, waiting to see who will make the first move — WHOA, IT SEEMS THEY AREN’T GONNA WASTE ANY TIME HERE, THEY ALL RUSH EACH OTHER AS THIS BRAWL BEGINS! So much is going on it’s hard to keep track of, rights and lefts are being exchanged all over the place! Hades delivers a boot to the head of Jordan Ciserano that sends him toppling out of the ring! He admires his work for a moment but in comes Jacob Senn who clubs him in the back! As this goes on Donuts is on the middle rope delivering punches to a cornered JP Caliban but here comes Lochlan Rossdale to push him off and onto the floor! Ventura dashes toward the Voltage up and comers and clotheslines them out of the ring while Alex Anderson seems to rolling out of the ring to avoid the chaos! He won’t be able to though as Donny Diamond cuts him off with the baseball slide! Jacob Senn and Hades are beginning to take their brawl to the outside but hold on now — EL LANDERSON SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES AND ONTO LANNISTER! NO, LANNISTER CAUGHT HIM! LOOK AT THE STRENGTH OF LANNISTER, HE LIFTS LANDERSON OVER HIS HEAD….AND TOSSES HIM ON ALL OF THE COMPETITORS ON THE OUTSIDE, TAKING THEM OUT! BODIES ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE AS THE ONLY PEOPLE LEFT IN THE RING ARE TLA AND LANNISTER!
Jake Mercer: TLA runs toward Lannister in the corner but Lannister moves out of the way! Don’t worry, he catches himself and then dives off for a Sunset flip! Lannister rolls out of it though and grabs TLA for a sitout powerbomb which gets reversed into a head scissors! Lannister gets to his feet and runs right into a dropkick! He attempts to regain his composure but TLA bounces him off of the ropes! When he comes back TLA goes to meet him with a clothesline but Lannister ducks and when he rebounds nails a big boot! Lannister brings TLA to his feet and delivers several knees to the sternum, following it up with a hip toss! TLA is on his side as Lannister grabs him by the waist and hoists him up — GERMAN SUPLEX! Lannister keep a grip of the waist lock and pulls him up again for another! The waist lock is still in effect here as Lannister pulls him up for a third time, GERMAN SUPLEX — NO, TLA CATCHES LANNISTER BY SURPRISE BY SWITCHING IT AROUND AND TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A PANTHERPLEX! Lannister lands head first before ending up on his knees which allows TLA to get him with a DDT, spiking the cranium of Lannister onto the mat and leaving him on his back!
Stew: A dazed Lannister is left to be dominated by TLA who runs the ropes and jumps over him, spring boarding off of the middle ropes for a moonsault! Oh come on! Lochlan Rossdale grabbed the legs of TLA causing him to fall to the ground! Lannister regains his senses and mounts TLA, punching him in the face repeatedly before dragging him off into his team’s corner. He asks them to hold TLA as Lochlan and JP Caliban comply. Lannister backs away and runs back, delivering one hell of a European uppercut! He turns around from the uppercut and hits a brutal forearm to the face, what a combination! Pantera slouches over onto the mat as Lannister tags in Lochlan! This is a very smart strategy by Team Voltage, cut off the ring from TLA’s Dynasty comrades and take Showdown out of the equation entirely! Lochlan enters the ring and delivers an axe handle elbow drop to TLA, knocking the wind right out of him! He places TLA in a side headlock to wear him down but TLA isn’t giving up that easily!
Matt Ryder: TLA is pushing himself up but Lochlan wraps his leg around him and brings him down with a Russian Legsweep! Lochlan gets on top of him and grabs the legs, I know what’s he going for here — THE DISTORTION! THE DISTORTION IS ABOUT TO BE LOCKED IN! TLA IS STRUGGLING BUT IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME! WAIT, HE PULLS LOCHLAN IN! SMALL PACKAGE!
Jake Mercer: A shocked Lochlan Rossdale kicks TLA in the gut before he can crawl away and then drags him back into the corner of Team Voltage, but TLA is trying to fight out of it! Lochlan has the leg of TLA and is not letting go — ENZUIGIRI TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD BY TLA! Lochlan staggers back to his corner as Team Dynasty rallies for a tag! TLA uses the last of his energy as he leaps to tag in Jacob Senn while Lochlan tags in Hades The Hellraiser! BUSINESS IS ABOUT TO PICK UP! Jacob Senn slides between the long legs of Hades and turns him around for a Pele Kick! Hades is rocked but still on his feet as Senn runs the ropes and attempts to take him down with a clothesline to no avail! He tries a third attempt but Hades caught him and takes him down with a sidewalk slam! Jordan Ciserano tries to grab a hold of Hades but receives a right hand for his troubles! Keep in mind that Showdown has pretty much been excluded from much of this contest so far, they must be chomping at the bit to get in!
Stew: Jacob Senn uses that distraction to his advantage as he delivers a jawbreaker to Hades and begins the Second City Combination, two right hooks, a shoot kick, the spinning back fist and finally a decapitating lariat! Donny is asking for the tag but Hades is still attempting to get up — SUPERKICK TO HADES! Jacob Senn walks over to Donny and he gets the tag!! Hades is regaining his composure only to be taken down yet again with a swinging neck breaker! Donny gets up and follows that up with a leg drop, going for a pin attempt after but surprisingly not even getting a one count! Donny is doing his best to keep Hades grounded with a front facelock but Hades is starting to get to his feet, Donny better think fast! OH! He does as he slams Hades’ face down into the canvas!
Matt Ryder: That won’t stop Hades though, he’s back at it as he is pushing as hard as he can! Donny is trying to stop him but the strength of the former Answers World Champion is just too much as he pushes Donny into a corner and demonstrates his boxing skills with some killer jabs! He grabs the hand of Donny Diamond and begins to walk the ropes, looking for Death from Above! NO! DONNY PUSHES HIM OFF AND ONTO THE FLOOR! Hades gets to a knee and that’s when Donny strikes as he dives to the outside! LOOK! VENTURA SOMEHOW MANAGED TO TAG THE LEG OF DONNY! SHOWDOWN IS FINALLY IN THIS! Hades catches Donny and slams him against the ring post, not knowing Ventura is the legal man as he walks right into a kick to the skull! Ventura gets in the ring and drags Hades in by his hair as he covers!
Jake Mercer: Ventura goes to work on Hades, picking him up for a Side Death Valley Driver! JP Caliban sneakily tags himself in as Ventura lays Hades out! He goes to springboard off the top rope but Ventura telegraphs it as he moves out of the way! Caliban does a roll through to save himself and shoots to his feet to deliver a Fire Dragons Roaring Elbow! Ventura is turned around by that devastating shot to the face and is taken off his feet with a double knee backbreaker! Caliban sizes Ventura up, waiting for him to move! Ventura is getting to a vertical basis — AND A KICK TO THE FACE BY CALIBAN! NO, VENTURA CATCHES IT AND LIFTS CALIBAN UP FOR A POWERBOMB! HE RUNS TOWARD THE TURNBUCKLE AND TOSSES CALIBAN RIGHT INTO IT! CALIBAN FALLS TO THE MAT AS VENTURA GOES FOR THE FINISH! BRAIN DEAD! THAT CURB STOMP TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!
Stew: BUT CALIBAN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! HE GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT VENTURA DUCKS IT! THEY BOTH RUN THE ROPES AND COLLIDE WITH DUAL CROSSBODY’S, TAKING BOTH OF THEM OUT! They roll into opposite corners as Alex Anderson and Jacob Senn tag themselves into the match up and immediately go at it! AA ducks a blow and goes for a flapjack but Jacob Senn turns it into a roll up! AA sticks to a vertical basis and uses that moment of vulnerability to hit an elbow drop! Senn crawls away to try and get some breathing room but AA stays on him and hits a body avalanche! Senn is in a bad way here as AA backs away and delivers another! He backs away again, looking to nail this a third time…..
Matt Ryder: Body avalanche number three! WAIT! SENN WITH THE EXPLODER SUPLEX!!!!!! AA USES THE ROPES TO HELP HIMSELF TO HIS FEET BUT THAT MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN THE BEST IDEA ; JACOB’S LADDER!!!!!!! NO, AA COUNTERS WITH THE FLAPJACK AND THIS TIME IT SUCCEEDS! HE LEG DROPS THE BACK OF JACOB SENN’S HEAD, COMPLETING THE ECLIPSE! AA BETTER COVER NOW, THIS MATCH IS AS GOOD AS OVER! AA FLIPS SENN OVER AND GOES FOR THE COVER! HOLD ON! EL LANDERSON IS TRYING TO TALK TO AA! HE HAS HIS HAND OUT, I THINK HE WANTS THE TAG! AA looks on wondering what he should do as the crowd is chanting for him to tag Landerson in! Landerson is basically begging for it at this point, he wants in so badly! AA hesitates!……..EL LANDERSON IS TAGGED IN! LANDERSON CLIMBS THE TOP ROPE AND HOVERS OVER JACOB, NOW IS THE TIME FOR HIM TO PROVE HIMSELF! HE LOOKS AT THE FANS AS THEY CHEER HIM ON, HE DIVES! FROG SPLASH ON JACOB! NO FREAKING WAY!!!!! COVER!
Jake Mercer: DONUTS BREAKS IT UP!!!!!!!! JORDAN DOESN’T TAKE TO KINDLY TO THAT THOUGH AS HE RUNS INTO THE RING! SHADOW KICK TO DONUTS! HE BETTER WATCH OUT! JORDAN IS TURNED AROUND BY DONNY DIAMOND! DIAMOND CUTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!! VENTURA COMES IN AND JOINS THE FRAY, BRAIN DEAD ON DONNY DIAMOND! LOCHLAN ROSSDALE COMES IN TO CLOTHESLINE VENTURA OUT OF THE RING!!!! LOCHLAN GOES TO DO MORE DAMAGE BUT AA AND LANDERSON FIGHT HIM OFF! AS THIS GOES ON IN THE RING JACOB SENN GETS UP TO SEE ALL OF THOSE OTHER PEOPLE ON THE OUTSIDE!! I CAN’T BELIEVE I GET TO CALL THIS ONE LAST TIME — FOSBURY FLOP!!!!!!!!!! BODIES ARE ALL AROUND US AS JP CALIBAN COMES TO LOCHLAN’S AID BUT AA AND LANDERSON QUICKLY KNOCK HIM DOWN!

(“Rules of Nature” by Jamie Christopherson plays as Team Voltage gathers around in the ring and get their hands raised in victory.)
Announcer: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS……TEAM VOLTAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: I TOLD ALL OF YOU! VOLTAGE PROVES YET AGAIN WHY IT IS THE A SHOW!!!!! THOSE CHUMPS NEVER EVEN STOOD A CHANCE
Stew: I will admit Voltage did great but that doesn’t take anything away from team Dynasty or Showdown, they put on an amazing performance and to be quite honest, the real winner here were the people who got to see this absolutely fantastic match!
Matt Ryder: I couldn’t agree more! We’ll be back with more epic match ups and awards after this commercial break!
( Brief promotional commercial break )
(Camera cuts to the podium on the stage)
Announcer: Here to present the Vixen of the Year Award… She is a multi-time Vixens Champion and EAW Hall of Famer… SABINA!!!….
(Sabina’s theme plays all throughout the arena as she proudly makes her way out to the stage with an envelope in hand and the Award in her other hand before stepping up to the podium)
Sabina: It’s really great to be back here… EAW has changed so much, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the hard-working Vixens that fight a constant uphill battle to prove they’re just as good as all the guys in the back. Being the Vixen of the Year means that for the past 365 days, you’ve fought and clawed your way past all other competition and against all odds. The face of the division may be the woman holding the Vixens Title, but the one who represents what this division meant this past year is the one taking home this Award. Here are this year’s nominees:
(Clips are shown; highlighting Cameron Ella Ava, Kendra Shamez, Lethal, Tarah Nova, and The Lyndivias from this past year before cutting back to Sabina as she opens the envelope)
Sabina: And the Vixen of the Year for 2014 is….. CAMERON ELLA AVA!
(“Rumors” by Lindsay Lohan plays all throughout the arena as Cameron makes her way out to the stage and quickly hugs Sabina before taking her Award and stepping up to the podium)
Crowd: CAMERON! CAMERON! CAMERON!
(“Rumors” fades out as Cameron’s stoic expression begins to break as she listens to the crowd loudly chant her name)
Cameron: ….. It goes without saying that this year was unlike any other for me. It’s a miracle I’m physically able to be here tonight after what I’ve been through the last couple months, but I’m proud to still be standing here as your Hall of Fame Champion, and now, once again, Vixen of the Year. I started this year off teaming with my best friend, the Heart Break Boy, and unfortunately we ran into a lot of problems that resulted in his career being put on the shelf for who knows how long. I’m confident he’ll see an EAW ring again, but until then, I avenged his name the best way I knew how and won the single biggest match in my entire career when I beat Jaywalker at Mid-Summer Massacre, took his Championship, and exiled him from this company.
(The crowd cheers)
Cameron: Along with that, I also competed in the Grand Rampage match, I ended up nearly ending the Heart Break Boy’s career myself, I competed in the Cash In The Vault Ladder Match, and now here I stand. There’s a lot–
Stew: LOOK OUT–TARAH NOVA CHARGES THE STAGE AND DRIVES CAMERON FACE-FIRST INTO THAT PODIUM FROM BEHIND!! TARAH NOVA WITH AN AMBUSH ON CAMERON OUT OF NOWHERE AS SHE LAYS INTO HER! CAMERON’S TRYING TO FIGHT BACK!! TARAH GRABS CAMERON AND SENDS HER INTO THE STAGE WALL! CAMERON’S SKULL NAILING THOSE LED DISPLAYS AS A DERANGED TARAH NOVA LAYS INTO HER!! TARAH… Tarah seems to be making her way over to the podium… Cameron’s in a great deal of pain here and Tarah–She grabs that EAW Award! Somebody stop her! She’s got a malicious look in her eyes as she stalks Cameron with that solid gold Award in her hand! Hold on–Sabina’s getting between them! She’s trying to break this up before it goes any further! TARAH DRIVES THAT AWARD STRAIGHT INTO THE SKULL OF SABINA!!! SHE JUST LAID OUT THE EAW HALL OF FAMER AND ONE OF EAW’S MOST LEGENDARY VIXENS!!
(Several Officials and backstage workers storm the stage and hold back Tarah Nova while Cameron rises back to her feet)
Mercer: Sabina looks like she’s out cold! I think she even suffered a laceration from that! Tarah Nova’s here tonight to prove a point to Cameron! This isn’t over! Not by a longshot! Cameron may be the Vixen of the Year, but a Vixen Killer still stands in her path!
(Tarah is escorted backstage while Cameron and Medical Technicians check on Sabina while the bloodied EAW Award is left lying on the stage)
(The camera cuts to the middle of the ring, where the ring announcer stands alone with a single spotlight on them.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome…Kevin Devastation.
(The arena begins to go silent as Wrong Side OF Heaven by Five Finger Death Punch plays as Kevin Devastation walks out slowly from the back, with a small black silk sack in his hand.)
Stew: For a man who lost his Dynasty career at Road To Redemption, Kevin looks to be a man who looks at peace here tonight. Normally when a man loses a match of this magnitude, there is regret, anger, and sometimes sadness. But KD, KD looks like he is comforted by something.
HBG: This is not the man I know, this is not the Kevin Devastation who inducted me into the Hall Of Fame. His whole facial expression is just…well when it comes to KD Stew, this kind of expression is just scary.
(Kevin Devastation reaches the ring, as some fans still boo him and he is handed a microphone. He begins to look around the arena as more people join in on the few, and begin to sing goodbye to KD.)
Stew: Honestly, he deserves the treatment he is getting, there has never been a more hated and egotistical man in this business than Kevin Devastation. He has treated everybody, the wrestlers, the staff, management, and especially these fans like dirt beneath him. But even I don’t think that he expected this.
(Kevin Devastation, still with a slight happy expression on his face holds the microphone out to the crowd, embracing the response for a moment while they finish. He then brings the microphone back.)
Kevin Devastation: I…
Kevin Devastation: I at first was in shock at what happened. Then I was angry. Not angry at Tiberius, he fought for his future, and not angry at Monroe, because he made a match happen. It wasn’t even anger towards you people who watch this product on a weekly basis. I for once, placed the anger, and placed the blame on the man responsible. I looked in the mirror when I got back to my hotel room, and I saw a man who was beaten, broken, and I looked deep in his eyes, and I cursed that man from the deepest part of my soul. I hated what I saw, I hated that the man in the mirror was me, and I hated that at the end of the day, I had become what nobody ever wanted to see. What nobody ever wants to become. I became a man who instead of striking fear, or a man who was given respect, instead of wanting it and getting none. You see, I saw a shell and then I walked away from that mirror, and I began to think. I began to think about why I wanted to be in this place, why back in 2009 when I signed on the dotted line as a nobody in these waters.
(Kevin Devastation stops, looks at the ground and then looks back up with a smile on his face, and what looks like a visible tear in his right eye.)
Kevin Devastation: I signed up here, five years ago, to become one of the most dominant, and one of the most respected men here when I took this company by storm. And I did become dominant, I did become successful by winning every championship I competed for within a thirteen month span. But it barely took six months to destroy what my original goal was. I wasn’t respected, I wasn’t liked even, and that’s not because I played a “bad guy” on tv…But because at the end of the day when they said “that’s a wrap” all I ever did was gloat, all I ever did was destroy peoples attitudes and dreams. There was a man by the name of George Copeland that I once told would be NOTHING…that man kicked my ass a few months back by setting me on fire twice, and damn near won the Heavyweight Championship at Road To Redemption, and I am sure will be a champion before Pain For Pride next year. You get the picture? I did the night of my fall to Tiberius Jones, who personally I feel deserves the respect he earned.
(Kevin Devastation picks up the silk bag he had, and takes out the EAW Championship from 2010, the one he won at Mid Summer Massacre, still stained with the blood he spilled that night afterwards.)
Kevin Devastation: And now for the here and now…this championship, this very piece of gold was the reason I became the ego driven man I had become. Gold, beating my protege, ending my quest…AND WAS IT WORTH IT? Was it worth the pain? Was it worth turning against everything I once aspired to be? In a way, yes it was. I got what I wanted, and then I became a man living on borrowed time. I did everything to stay relevant, and honestly it worked for a while. I had highs, and I had lows. The view was always changing around me. And now, I have one view left, a point of view if you will. And that is this, and you can take it or leave it, but I hope all the young guys in the back listen…so you do not become like me one day.
(Kevin Devastation looks at the EAW Championship as he speaks now, not even blinking…)
Kevin Devastation: Never abandon the dream, because if you do…the world just becomes a nightmare.
(He brings the championship close to his face, and gentle kisses the title on the center, and then sits it down in the center of the ring.)
Kevin Devastation: With that I say thank you, and before you ask I do mean it. Thank you for the memories, and thank you for the ride.
(Kevin Devastation throws the mic to the time keeper and steps out of the ring, and begins to walk up the ramp as the following song begins to pay throughout the arena. www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rykzxxcsRM )
Stew O: Powerful words, from a man at peace at what has happened. Kevin Devastation, a man who over the years made you hate him…may in one swift motion actually got a few people to like him.
Heart Break Gal: I think he found his end game Stew, and honestly I saw him sign up in 2009, and the road he has taken over these years has not been an easy one to watch. Maybe the road ahead for him will be better, one can only hope.
(A camera backstage picks up Kevin Devastation walking down a hallway to the back entrance of the arena, a few extremists watch from where they were at as he walks by with his head held high, still with that smile.)
Stew: Kevin Devastation is making his way out now, for a final time in this industry he takes the long walk from this ring to the parking lot.
(The camera shows Kevin Devastation stopping at a black lamborbike * http://www.lambocars.com/lambonews/lamborbiker_a_two_wheel_lamborghini_concept.jpg *. He gets on, and starts it up. He revs the engine , before looking back at the arena one last time.)
(He smiles again before riding off into the night..)
(The camera cuts to the center of the ring as the ring announcer is standing in the middle of the ring preparing for the match.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall… AND IS FOR THE VIXENS CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
(“Give In To Me” by Michael Jackson comes on as we see Lethal strut out of the back with the Vixens Championship on her shoulder as he walks down the ramp.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first… she is from Parts Unknown… weighing in at 142 pounds… she is the EAW Vixens Champion… LLLEEETTTHHHAAALLL!!!
Stew: The Monster Vixens Champion known as Lethal has graced her presence as she is set to defend her championship tonight!
Ryder: This woman has been a wrecking ball in the world of the Vixens division and I believe that there is no woman on the roster that has the strength that she has.
Mercer: Even if that is true, it takes more than strength to be the champion and that is why Lethal is champ. She is no slouch and I believe that will be evident in tonight’s match!
(“We Hate Everyone” by K-Flay blasts from the speakers as Kendra Shamez walks out as she taunts on the stage and makes her way towards the ring to face Lethal.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing the challenger… she is from Buffalo, New York… she weighs in at 135 pounds… KKKEEENNNDDDRRRAAA SSSHHHAAAMMMEEEZZZ!!!
Stew: Former two-time Vixens Champion, a Hall of Famer, and now facing Lethal once again, but this time for the Vixens Championship!
Ryder: The Lethal/Kendra Shamez rivalry has been a huge part of EAW and tonight, we could see Kendra get a record-tying third Vixens Championship if she can defeat Lethal.
Mercer: That will pose a huge challenge for the challenger because she has yet to put over Lethal as of late.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: The bell has rung and Lethal– LETHAL WASTES NO TIME AS SHE LEVELS KENDRA WITH THE LARIAT! That had to have made her bell get rung there! Lethal goes back to Kendra and begins stomping on her face as he drops down and beats her face with punches as she finally starts slamming her head down repeatedly on the canvas! Lethal grabs her by the throat as she lifts her up and throws her into the turnbuckle! Lethal sprints towards Kendra as she looks to land something! Corner big boot by Lethal as Kendra slumps down off the corner and Lethal catches her! Belly-to-belly suplex connects as Lethal drops Kendra onto the mat and goes for the pin!
Ryder: Kendra kicks out as Lethal continues on with this savage beating onto her with a few elbow drops to the chest! Lethal grabs Kendra by the waist as she lifts her up and slams her back on the canvas with the gutwrench suplex! Lethal runs the ropes as Kendra begins to get up on her own! When Lethal reaches Kendra, Lethal lands a shin breaker as you see Kendra flip through the air and hold her shin as Lethal gets back up and looks back at the downed Kendra!
Mercer: Lethal grabs the legs of Kendra as she pulls her in and begins going for the giant swing! She begins swinging around! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN! Lethal throws Kendra over to the corner where Kendra begin using the corner to try and pick herself up as Lethal runs in! Lethal comes in for the shoulder right into the stomach of Kendra! Lethal repeats this a few more times until Kendra drops down to the mat, leaning against the turnbuckle! Lethal starts to choke her out with the boot as the referee begins to count for the disqualification!
Stew: Lethal lets go before the count finishes as she steps back and runs in with the knee to the face! As Kendra recoils from the blow, Lethal pulls Kendra in as she lifts her on her shoulders! Lethal runs to the opposing turnbuckle and lands a turnbuckle powerbomb as Kendra pops off and lands near the center of the ring! Kendra starts to get up as Lethal runs the ropes! AXE KICK CONNECTS AS SHE DROPS KENDRA! Lethal grabs the hair of Kendra as she brings her groggily to her feet! Lethal grabs Kendra by the arms as she lifts her high in the air as you can see that Kendra’s eyes glazed over, still gone from that axe kick! LETHAL INJECTION! THE ELEVATED DOUBLE CHICKENWING FACEBUSTER CONNECTS AS LETHAL SPINS AROUND FOR THE PIN ON KENDRA!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Give In To Me” by Michael Jackson plays in the background as Lethal stands back up and is handed the Vixens Championship and her hand is raised.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner and STILL EAW VIXENS CHAMPION… LLLEEETTTHHHAAALLL!!!
Stew: In a dominant and decisive victory, Lethal has retained her EAW Vixens Championship as she has defeated Kendra Shamez tonight!
Ryder: I would not call that dominant, I would call that a massacre! Lethal destroyed Kendra and has proven why she is the Vixens Champion once more!
Mercer: Congratulations are in order for Lethal, but I promise you that there will be more challenges to come in the near future!
(A highlight video of the events that happened during the World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber begins to play, focusing on Lucian Black’s elimination and the steel chair shot and spear to Xavier Williams later in the match.)
(“House of the Rising Sun” – Five Finger Death Punch hits as a wounded Xavier Williams slowly limps through the curtain with the Cash in the Vault briefcase in his left hand, still showing the effects of the Elimination Chamber a week ago at Road to Redemption.)
Stew-O: Some people could say this man was very well on his way to winning the World Heavyweight Championship at Road to Redemption before Lucian Black heinously cost him his spot after cracking him in the skull with a steel chair and almost breaking him in half with a spear.
Mercer: But Stew, the world isn’t made of would have’s, should have’s or could have’s! It’s made from results and quite frankly, Xavier Williams wasn’t good enough to walk out of that Chamber as the World Heavyweight Champion, because if he was, you for one wouldn’t be making any excuses to why he isn’t the champion right now.
Ryder: I hate to admit it, but I think I may agree with Mercer on this one. My broski Xavier isn’t the World Heavyweight Champion right now and while some may believe that it because of Lucian Black, who’s to say that he would have actually overcame both Tyler Parker and Mr DEDEDE?
(Xavier Williams is handed a microphone as “House of the Rising Sun” fades.)
Xavier: …I’ve had all week to think about what happened. Having everything that I’ve wanted just fingertips away from my grasp, only for it all to be ripped away by a man that had no business doing what he did. I’ve thought long and hard about what I was going to do; I had the intention to walk out here, cash this briefcase in against Mr DEDEDE and rectify the wrong that occurred inside that Elimination Chamber. I really could do that, but first I need to deal with the problem that stands before me now. I said after Road to Redemption that it’s funny how one little mistake can cost a man his entire career; Lucian I’m more than sure that you’re more than smart enough to understand who that was for. I was told by the doctors that I shouldn’t stand in this ring right now; sit home and recover, but Lucian, I just don’t care anymore.
(Xavier Williams rolls out of the ring and grabs a steel chair, before re-entering the ring, opening it up and taking a seat.)
Xavier: To simply put it, Lucian, I’m not leaving until I have your head on a pike.
Stew-O: The kid has a whole lot of guts, but he needs to use his brain here; he’s in no condition for this…
(“Beast” – Nico Vega hits as Lucian Black slowly walks through the curtain and begins to make his way down to the ring.)
Mercer: And it looks like Lucian Black has no problem finishing what he started at Road to Redemption!
Stew-O: But look! Security rushing down the ramp and getting in between both the ring and the ramp! Trying to do everything in their power to keep these two men apart AND LUCIAN BLACK WITH A SUPERMAN PUNCH TO ONE OF THE SECURITY GUARDS! BUT LOOK AT XAVIER— XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH A SUICIDE DIVE TAKING OUT THE SECURITY GUARDS AND LUCIAN BLACK! I DON’T THINK THE SECURITY HAD NO CHANCE IN HELL OF KEEPING THESE TWO MEN APART! AND XAVIER WILLIAMS BEGINNING TO UNLOAD ON LUCIAN BLACK; NOT ALLOWING HIM TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! LUCIAN BLACK PUSHING XAVIER AWAY, BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS ALMOST TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A STRAIGHT PUNT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! XAVIER WILLIAMS KNOWS THAT HE IS IN NO POSITION TO GET CAUGHT BY LUCIAN BLACK, DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO TAKE WHATEVER HE CAN OUT OF THE MAN! XAVIER WILLIAMS LOOKING FOR ANYTHING HE CAN GET HIS HAND ON FROM UNDER THE RING, PULLING OUT A STEEL CHAIR! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS HIM LOCKED DIRECTLY IN HIS SIGHTS, LOOKING FOR RETRIBUTION FOR LAST WEEK! XAVIER WILLIAMS ALMOST TAKES HIS LUCIAN’S HEAD OFF HIS SHOULDERS—-
Mercer: SAMOAN DROP! LUCIAN BLACK DUCKS UNDER IT AND DRIVES XAVIER WILLIAMS SPINE FIRST INTO THAT STEEL RAMP WITH A SAMOAN DROP! XAVIER WILLIAMS JUST SCREAMING IN PAIN AS HE CLUTCHES AS THOSE ALREADY INJURED BACK! NOW LUCIAN BLACK HAS THE STEEL CHAIR IN HAND— AND HE DRIVES THE EDGE OF THE CHAIR INTO THE RIGHT KNEE OF WILLIAMS! AND NOW INTO THE LEFT! NOW THE RIGHT ARM! AND THE LEFT! LUCIAN BLACK JUST PICKING XAVIER WILLIAMS APART WITH THAT CHAIR!
Stew-O: ISN’T QUALITY CONTROL MEANT TO STOP THIS! QUALITY CONTROL ARE MEANT TO STOP THIS EXTREMITY, BUT RIGHT NOW THEY’RE NOWHERE TO BE SEEN! XAVIER WILLIAMS TRYING TO ROLL AWAY, BUT THE PAIN MAY JUST BE TOO MUCH— AND LUCIAN BLACK BEGINS TO REPEATEDLY DRIVE THAT STEEL CHAIR INTO THE SPINE OF WILLIAMS! THE ONLY THING STOPPING HIM IS THE FACT THAT THE CHAIR IS NOW IN PIECES! XAVIER WILLIAMS ISN’T MOVING!
Mercer: THIS IS WHAT XAVIER WANTED ISN’T IT! THIS IS THE RETRIBUTION THAT HE WANTED, ISN’T IS STEW?! THE MAN WAS TOLD TO PUT HIS EGO ASIDE, RECOVER AND DO WHAT WAS RIGHT, BUT HE REFUSED; NOW LOOK AT HIM! HE MAY HAVE JUST WELL COST HIMSELF HIS VERY CAREER! Lucian Black just dragging Xavier Williams up the ramp by his left arm. The same old look we seen at Road to Redemption covers the face of Lucian Black as he drags Xavier Williams over to the edge of the ramp! Lucian Black is about to finish this once and for all! Lucian Black dragging the almost unconscious Xavier Williams back to his feet and pulls him in! Lucian Black lifting Xavier Williams high into the air!
Ryder: HOLY SH— LUCIAN BLACK WITH A POWERBOMB, SENDING XAVIER WILLIAMS CRASHING OFF THE STAGE INTO THE PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT! SPARKS BEGINNING TO FLY AT XAVIER WILLIAMS LOOKS TO HAVE BEEN SWALLOWED BY THAT DARK ABYSS! WE NEED HELP FOR THAT MAN!
(“Beast” – Nico Vega hits as Lucian Black stands on the edge of the ramp looking down at the destruction that he just caused. The camera looks down at Xavier Williams whose left lying in that pit, motionless.)
Mercer: Help? HELP? The man got exactly what he deserved. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, this was what Xavier Williams wanted. He wanted to Lucian Black to come out here; he wanted to put on a show for the world. Fight through the pain and give Lucian Black what he thought he deserved, but the hard reality is, this world isn’t made of fairytales and tonight, Xavier Williams learned that the hard way. And his stupidity may have very well cost him his career.
(Medical staff rush out to the aid of Xavier Williams, placing him onto a stretcher and wheeling him out of the arena as the camera fades out.)
( Quick promotional commercial break )
( “Nas Is Like” by Nas hits as The Nas walks out from the back in ring gear and makes his way to the ring )
Ryder: Uh oh! Inter-branded action continues!
Stew: It sure does, the NEW BREED TITLE is on the line on this star-studded show, and this time it’s Dynasty’s own The Nas looking to bring the gold home right where it belongs, on Dynasty! He won the Shock Collar Battle Royal a number of weeks ago at November’s Shock Value, and that earned him the right to have this match. I’m confident The Nas takes it home for the Red brand!
( “The Awakening” – COPIA hits as Jamie O’Hara comes out with his New Breed title on him, fully prepared for the match )
Mercer: Yeah, Nas is looking to bring the gold to his home.. but just a minor plot-twist… NOT GONNA HAPPEN! O’Hara’s been New Breed Champ for a number of months when he took the title off Ryan Savage late this summer on an episode of Voltage. Since then he’s come out as a premiere athlete in all of EAW, and The Nas just doesn’t have what it takes yet, sorry!
Stew: Jake… Jake… you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.
Ryder: The inter-branded competition getting the worst of these two commentators, but rest assured I’ll cover this match with swift accuracy, the way I have all night!
Stew and Mercer: (ROLL)
( Both competitors are in the ring; the RA steps into the center of the ring )
Ring Announcer: This following contest is set for one fall and is for the EAW NEEEWW BREEEED CHAMPIOONSHIP!!! … Introducing first, the CHALLENGER, from Atlantic City, New Jersey weighing 260 POOOOUNDSSS.. TTHEEEEEEEE NAAAAAAAAAASSS!!!
( The Nas shows off to the crowd )
Ring Announcer: The opponent… from Sydney, Australia weighing 215 POOOUNDS… he is the reigning and defending EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIOOONNNNN… JAAAAMMIEEEEEEEE OOOOO’HARAAAAAA!!
( Jamie raises his belt and kisses it before handing it to the referee who raises the title to the crowd. The ref hands it to a worker and checks both men for weapons, and soon after signals for the bell to sound )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Ryder: New Breed Championship on the line here at the 2014 EAW Awards Show where we’ve seen a lot happen already… both men close in… Nas has over half a foot of height on O’Hara and nearly 50 pounds on him, all muscle, bro. O’Hara’s got speed and quickness on his size but don’t get The Nas wrong, there’s a ton of athleticism that comes with that big frame. Jamie’s chosen to lock up with Nas and it’s a stiff grapple to start this match off here… both men exerting all they have… knee to the ribs by Jamie – Nas catches the knee! Forearms hit the head of The Nas now in rapidfire motion and a kick to the ribs connects!
Mercer: O’Hara hits a LOUD palm strike to the face, runs the ropes and rebounds – WILD SWING by The Nas, O’Hara ducks under the clothesline, ricochets off the ropes and goes for a HURRICANRANA! .. BUT THE NAS COUNTERS INTO A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER! Nas grabs Jamie and lifts hm for a fallaway slam.. NO DROPS JAMIE SPINE FIRST INTO THE KNEE! Jamie hits elbows and punches from that position, but Nas lifts him AGAIN and hits the FALLAWAY SLAM!
Stew: O’Hara like a cat lands on his feet and backpedals to the ropes, leaning back on them to recuperate. Nas quickly gets up and runs for a clothesline to the outside!! O’Hara’s hurt but SOMEHOW O’Hara lands on the apron. Nas kicks O’Hara in the midsection and hits the BLAZE KICK! LOUD SUPERKICK TO THE KNEELING JAMIE! O’Hara falls to the outside and Nas follows suit, pulling the current Champ up and whipping him SPINE FIRST into the barricade! Jamie stumbles forward holding his back and Nas scoops him just to send him RIGHT ONTO THE FLOOR WITH A SPINE-RATTLING SCOOP SLAM. Jamie’s wincing in pain, holding his back and it seems as though that’s the target Nas has in mind. Tough to fly around or do any heavy lifting with a bad back, so bright logic by Nas. The Nas brings O’Hara into the ring and follows up with several heavy knees to the spine, and floors him with a headlock pressing his face into the mat! Heavy mat work from The Nas, throwing his weight around and cutting O’Hara down to speed!
Mercer: Doesn’t mean he’s won, Stew. O’Hara quickly looks to roll through the hold and he does. Both men pop to their knees, Nas with a right, JAMIE with a right! Nas stands up and Jamie approaches, ARMDRAG by Nas! No, O’hara centers his balance, LEG-WHIP BY O’Hara! He holds that same leg and hits stomps galore onto that hamstring and knee! Now Jamie drops a tornado knee onto that leg! Now he hand-stands on that same leg and hits a KNEE DROP to the leg and hooks it!
Ref: OOOOONEEE…. TWOOOOO…
Ryder: KICK OUT by Nas! Jamie immediately grabs ahold of that leg again and locks in a half boston crab with that targeted leg. Nas is being put to task by the smart, crafty, young Jamie O’Hara. Truthfully I don’t know if I’ve seen a high flyer this level headed and this poised ever before. We’ve seen guys like Robbie V, Extreme Enigma, Captain Charisma, go down the list of names who soared through the skies. A common denominator of high flyers is they are very reckless and rush into moves sometimes head-first, especially in their younger days. Jamie O’Hara on the other hand may be the most calculating high flyer I’ve seen on a while! He picks every spot, just like he’s picked at this one, and he knows when and when not to take off!
Mercer: Exactly my point, excellent observation Ryder! While it may be early to group him in with legendary names like that, Jamie here’s a student of the game and he doesn’t let his popularity get to his head like The Nas does.
Stew: Well The Nas just clawed his way to the ropes and Jamie drags Nas away from the ropes.. but Nas turns to his back, kicks O’Hara away and KIPS UP! But Nas drops to a knee as O’HARA RUNS FOR THE SHINING WIZARD! But Nas catches the Champion and lifts him for a POWERBOMB AND HITS THE RUNNING POWERBOMB RIGHT INTO THE CORNER! JAMIE TOSSING, TURNING AND SQUIRMING AFTER TAKING THE HIT TO THE BACK, COVER BY NAS!
Ref: OOOOONEEE… TWOOOOOO!!! THRREEE
Mercer: Jamie grabs the bottom rope, the pin gets waved off! That was a rough move The Nas just hit, and that back of Jamie’s that’s already sore from the Elimination Chamber just 7 days ago is taking a beating again. Nas however is fresh, and he’s standing over O’Hara doing the People’s Stomps, stomping all over parts of O’Hara’s body and hits multiple harsh stomps onto his spine! Referee trying to get him to settle down! Nas pulls O’Hara up and takes him BACK DOWN with a swinging neckbreaker! Nas covers again.
Ref: OOOONEEE!!! .. TWOOOOOO!!!
Ryder: Kick out! Nas pulls O’Hara up and takes him to a corner now… and Nas hits HEAVY KNIFE EDGED CHOPS RIGHT TO THE CHEST! BREATH-TAKING CHOPS BY THE NAS-STER! O’Hara can barely breath and Nas whips him across the ring.. Jamie counters the whip and hits the ARM-WRENCH LEG LARIAT!! BUT NAS CATCHES JAMIE IN MID AIR AND HITS THE TEARDROP SUPLEX! ANOTHER COVER!
Ref: OOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!
Stew: KICK OUT again by O’Hara! The Nas gets back up to his feet… drags Jamie into the center of the ring… and he slides the elbow pad off.. and tosses it into the audience now! … AND NAS IS GOING FOR THE MOST ELECTRIFYING MOVE IN FEDS AND ENTERTAINMENT! THE SPECTACULAR ELBOW! … But as Nas approaches O’HARA LIFTS HIS LEGS BACK TO A HAND-STAND AND GETS THE BODY-SCISSORS PIN!
Ref: OOOONEE.. TWOOO..
Stew: Nas kicks out as Jamie is flung to all fours! Nas rushes up and grabs O’Hara for the GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT O’HARA COUNTERS WITH AN AMAZING PELE KICK! RUNS THE ROPES… BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK! Nas recovers, O’Hara hits several backhand strikes! Spin-kick to the gut, hops on a double over Nas’ back… AND HITS A WICKED FRONT FRANKENSTEINER DRIVER SENDING NAS RIGHT ONTO HIS NECK! OH MY GOODNESS!!! NAS ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, SEARING IN PAIN!!
Mercer: THAT – WAS – SICK! Don’t know if I’ve ever seen a Frankensteiner hit like that before! The referee slides out of the ring to check on Nas’ health.. he’s barely back to his feet … O’HARA COMES FROM OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE CORKSCREW PLANCA!!! …. BUT NAS DRAGS THE REFEREE IN HIS WAY! O’HARA TAKES THE REFEREE DOWN! NAS THAT DAMNED CHEATER! WHAT A CHEAP MOVE! Nas backpedals and the New Breed Champ rushes to his feet and heads towards Nas… OVER-THE-SHOULDER FLAPJACK SENDS O’HARA FACE FIRST INTO THE RING STEPS! O’Hara might be busted open by that move! Nas brings O’Hara into the ring now and… and… he’s climbing up the turnbuckle!
Ryder: I think we know what he’s got planned here… Nas is standing up top… and HE SPRINGS OFF!! NEW!!! JERSEY!! JAM!!! CONNECTS, LEGDROP ACROSS THE FACE FROM THE TOP ROPE, AND NAS COVERS! But Nas taking advantage of the ref might come back to bite him in the ass, because — hey, no… the ref’s dragging himself onto the apron! I gotta admit that’s rather resilient of the referee, most ref’s would be out for the next 20 minutes! Nevertheless the ref faintly slides in the ring and crawls over to count! IS THIS IT!?
Ref: OOOOOONEEE!!! ……. TWOOOOOOOOO!!! …………… anddddd… THREEEEEEE…
Stew: NOT YET! JAMIE O’HARA KICKS OUT IN THE KNICK OF TIME AFTER A VERY SLOW COUNT! O’Hara had A LOT of time, that’s probably the only reason why this match isn’t over yet. The Nas rises up… and he’s crouched over! He’s waiting, he’s stalking, he’s prepared for when Jamie O’Hara rises…. so he can turn him around… FOREARM BY JAMIE! AND ROUNDHOUSE KICK SENDING NAS FOR A LOOP! NAS SPINS AROUND… ANOTHER ROUNDHOUSE!! .. NAS SPINS AROUND DRAMATICALLY AGAIN.. SCARLET DAWN!!!! Nas DUCKS! He runs the ropes to fire back… JAMIE HITS THE DOWN UNDER!!!! INCREDIBLE DOUBLE A SPINEBUSTER! HOW DID HE MUSCLE THE NAS UP TO DO THAT?
Mercer: STRENGTH WITHIN STEW, HOOK OF THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOOONEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!
Mercer: KICK OUT! O’Hara’s crawling to the turnbuckle now, doing his best to even get there and he makes the climb.. but Nas follows through and hammers shots into the spine. Nas standing on the second rope while O’Hara’s at the top and he wants the SPIDER BACK SUPLEX! BUT O’HARA HOOKS THE HEAD, HE GETS THE SLICED BREAD _# 2!! Nas’ momentum takes him flipping backwards after the back of his head hits the mat and he’s up to his knees.. O’HARA RICOCHETS OFF THE ROPES INFRONT OF NAS AND TURNS HIM INSIDE OUT WITH THE SHINING WIZARD!! O’HARA CATCHES BOTH LEGS IN THE AIR FOR THE PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOO!!! TTHHRRRRRRR–
Ryder: KICK OUT! O’Hara gets up to his feet, limps to the corner and is taking a page out of HBB’s book by tuning up the band! The Nas is seeing stars, eyes glazed over and just barely gets up to his feet… and O’HARA HITS THE SCARLET DAWN WITH ALL HE HAS!!! NO, NAS SIDE-STEPS AND PULLS O’HARA IN FOR THE GRAND SLAM!!!! GRAND SLAM!!! WILL THE ROCK BOTTOM CONNE– NO, JAMIE CORKSCREWS AND COUNTERS INTO A FRONT-ROLL BODY SCISSORS PIN!
Ref: OOOOOONEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEE!!!
Ryder: NAS KICKS OUT!! TOO LATE!!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
( “The Awakening” – COPIA hits and O’Hara rolls out of the ring, leaned back on the apron and is given the title )
Ring Announcer: Your winner and STILL your EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION… JAAAMIEEE OOO’HARAAA!!!
Ryder: That was awesome!
Mercer: IT WAS AN EXCELLENT MATCH STEW, BUT YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO ADMIT I WAS RIGHT!
Stew: You were right Jake, Jamie O’Hara is truly one of a kind! Fantastic New Breed title match, these guys look like they were born to wrestle each other, I really hope we see a rematch somewhere in the future.
Mercer: It’d be well deserved, your Nas definitely has a future around here in EAW. But Tomorrow’s Legend bounces back from the loss at Road To Redemption and heads into the new year representing the new breed.
(A graphic for Match of the Year is shown on the titantron and cameras before cutting to Pierre McGuire once more, who is standing on the podium with an envelope in hand. )
Pierre: For our last award of the night… it is definitely my honor to present to you, the 2014 Match of the Year Award. The soon-to-be Elite Answers Wrestling has been graced by amazing talents through the years, that has helped create an empire that is only to marvel at. But it’s not just the build, it’s the execution, that has separated EAW from the rest. And for a company that has no shortage of amazing athletes and talent… it’s only fitting that it shines through in iconic moments and matches. And here tonight, we award the BEST of 2014. Let’s take a look:
(Highlight video is shown of Mr. DEDEDE vs Mikado Sekaiichi, Hades the Hellraiser vs Dark Demon vs Zack Crash, Tyler Parker vs GI Styles, Diamond Cage vs Starr Stan, Mikado Sekaiichi vs Tyler Parker vs Jacob Senn, and Scott Diamond vs Jacob Senn before cutting back to Pierre McGuire. )
Pierre: And the winner is… MIKADO SEKAIICHI VS MR. DEDEDE AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!
( “Battlecry” echoes throughout the arena as Ares Vendetta walks through the curtain. )
Pierre: And accepting the award on behalf of his father, Mikado… ARES VENDETTA!
( Pierre is shoved out of the way, as Ares picks up the award and takes to the podium, himself. )
Ares: “He who laughs last, laughs best!”
This is a common phrase, from my father’s common foe… my father’s last foe. Mr. DEDEDE thought he was receiving the last laugh… but who is laughing now, Mr. DEDEDE? Just in the back, I was informed it was MY FATHER, and not you, who won the World Heavyweight Champion of the Year award, and not you. But well, perhaps that is not a slight on Mr. DEDEDE – perhaps that’s just a testament to how great THE Mikado Sekaiichi was.
This is a man who won the King of Extreme, the true kingdom to be proud of, not once – but TWICE! He rightfully won what was his, all along, at Reasonable Doubt – the World Heavyweight Championship. And to DEDEDE’s credit – he too was part of such a spectacle. But it was always the Mikado who stole the show. And that he did… even on his last day. A great man, receiving a great achievement.
But well… I’ll be better than my father ever was. And I’ll achieve that in honor of he… and in honor of the history he has left behind, which now includes this match of the year honor, along with World Heavyweight Champion of the year. And along the way… vengeance will tell the tale. For Wrongs?
Mikado’s vengeance waits!
( Ares Vendetta lifts the “Match of the Year” award into the air, before taking his leave to the sounds of “Battlecry”. )
(“The Devil In I” by Slipknot plays… Norman Hellion bursts through the curtains, holding the Answers World Championship right his right hand, charging his way down the ramp)
Ring Announcer: This following triple threat match is your main event of the evening! And it is set for one fall! Introducing first, from parts unknown! Weighing in at 314 POOOOOOUNNNNDDDSSSSS! HE REPRESENTS SHOWDOWN… THE NEW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIOOOOOOOONNNNNNN!!!!…. NORMAAAAANNNNNNN HEEEELLLLLLLIIIIIOOOOONNNNNNNN!!!!!!
Matt Ryder: Here we go folks, it’s time for the main event that ShowDown conquers over all the other brands to reign supreme! What other way would be fitting to end the year? ShowDown on top as we usually are, much like Norman Hellion walked out on top a week ago at Road to Redemption to capture his covenant Answers World Championship for the very first time! And you better bet your ass that he turned heads and finally started to impress those who’ve been overlooking him for quite some time!
(“Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana plays as the crowd jumps in a roar, Diamond Cage comes walking out onto the ramp with the EAW World Championship wrapped around his waist and kendo stick firmly gripped in his right hand…)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada! Weighing in at 230 POOOOOUUUUNNNNDDDSSSSSS!!!!!…. HE REPRESENTS VOLTAGE!!!!… AND HE IS THE NEWWWWW EEEEE… AAAAAA…. WWWWWW CHAMPION OF THE WORLDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!…. DIAMMMMMMOOOOOOONNNNNDDDDDDD CCCCAAAAAGGGGGGGEEEEEEEE!!!!
Jake Mercer: He’s bruised, he’s banged up and he’s taped like a mummy all over! But he still walks here with such confidence in himself, as he’s had that spirit for his entire career! Even when nobody believed in him, when people said he would never make it as a World Champion! Here he stands, representing Voltage at Triple Threat as your newly reigning EAW Champion! If anybody is going to walk out tall tonight, it’s going to be this man.
( “Sirius” by The Alan Parsons Project plays as the lights begin to dim … Soon gold lights fix on the stage and Mr. DEDEDE walks out through the curtain, taped up, wearing the World Heavyweight Championship Crown on his head and the Championship Belt around his waist. He dons a sash bearing the Eye of Horus with “Eye in the Sky”-themed attire. He poses on the top of the stage with pro sounding off besides him before he makes his way down the ramp. )
Ring Announcer: And introducing last, from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida! Weighing in at 235 POOOOUUUUNNNNDDDSSSS!!!!…. HE’S REPRESENTING DYNASTY!!!!!… AND HE IS YOUR CURRENT REIGNING EAW HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLDDDDDD!!!!…. “THE EYE IN THE SKY” … MR. DEEEEEEEEE…. DEEEEEEEEEE….DEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
Stew-O: If anything; I’m sick of everyone continuously doubting the man that has lead everyone on any roster for so long now. Like him or not— he’s still reigning supreme over the Dynasty roster as your World Heavyweight Champion. And I don’t expect anyone to dethrone him anytime soon! There’s nobody worthy to take what’s rightfully his! He’s going to win tonight and prove an example to everybody! He’s the best ever, and you better bet your ass he’s going to show it. So, let’s begin with Voltage and ShowDown’s live embarrassment!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Jake Mercer: Ha, get real, but his match has begun, as all three men circle the ring! They turn their head from left to right… watching each others moves— DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! NORMAN HELLION DROPS DIAMOND CAGE RIGHT OFF THE BAT WITH A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! HE TURNS DIAMOND CAGE RIGHT OUT, AS HE DROPS THAT KENDO STICK RIGHT OUT OF HIS GRASP! LANDING AWKWARDLY ON HIS NECK! AND MR. DEDEDE CAPITALIZES ON IT, COMING BEHIND NORMAN! REVERSE DDT CONNECTING! These guys exploding straight away, disregarding their current injuries! Mr. DEDEDE keeps a firm grasp around Norman’s head, keeping him in that headlock position! Pulling him up slowly!
Matt Ryder: But Norman with a piercing elbow to Mr. DEDEDE’s gut! And there’s another! Another! Just enough force for Mr. DEDEDE to loosen to grip on Norman… and Norman twists his head around in his arms! HATCH SUPLEX CONNECTING ON MR. DEDEDE! But Norman is easily feeling the after effects of Road to Redemption; being the monstrosity that he is! He slowly pulls himself back together and rises up— noticing Diamond Cage pulling himself up with the middle rope! NORMAN CHARGES AT HIM! RUNNING KNEE SHOT TO THE HEAD— DIAMOND CAGE SWERVES OUT OF THE WAY! AND CAGE WITH A SNAP KICK TO NORMAN’S RIGHT THIGH!
Stew-O: AND ANOTHER SNAP KICK! Trying to take Norman down! And there’s a forearm straight to Norman’s head! Diamond Cage trying to unleash with these strategic strikes! But Norman shoves him away! Diamond Cage, however, comes back with a stiff kick to Norman’s gut! DROPPING HIM NOSE FIRST WITH A DOUBLE-ARM HOOKED DDT! And Cage grabs a hold of that kendo stick he brought with him here tonight! This should be something wicked! AND CAGE UNLEASHES WITH RAPID STRIKES TO NORMAN’S SPINE WITH THAT KENDO STICK! BRUTALLY BEATING HIM WITH IT!
Jake Mercer: AND MR. DEDEDE STALKS BEHIND CAGE… PULLING HIM IN! RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! THE KENDO STICK GOES FLYING OUT OF HIS GRASP AGAIN TO THE OUTSIDE! Mr. DEDEDE gets up holding onto his arm, walking over to Norman this time… delivering a few stomps to his ribcage. Mr. DEDEDE leans down to grab Norman by the hair, pulling him back up to his feet! AND MY GOD! DROPS HIM BACK IN THE CENTER OF THE RING WITH THAT DEADLY SPINEBUSTER! Norman is holding onto his lower back in agony! DEDEDE quickly hooks the leg of Norman, looking to end this early on!
Matt Ryder: NORMAN KICKS OUT OF IT! Still pressing on in this match! Mr. DEDEDE doesn’t seem to hesitate to keep his offensive attack in fast-forward… as Norman’s receives multiple closed fists to his head! And Diamond Cage is up, just barely on his feet! Limping toward Mr. DEDEDE, grabbing him by the hair, spinning him around.. AND DROPS HIS ELBOW ON TOP HIS HEAD! THERE IT IS AGAIN! Pulling Mr. DEDEDE up by his golden colored hair— knife edge chop from Cage! Multiple of those! But Mr. DEDEDE responds with a knee to Cage’s gut!
Stew-O: But Cage grabs DEDEDE’s arm and whips him to the ropes! No, DEDEDE forces his weight into the whip, whipping Cage into the ropes instead! Cage comes rebounding back! CLOTHESLINE FROM CAGE— NO! FLAPACK! MR. DEDEDE WITH A FLAPJACK! But that dealt damage to both, as he holds onto his arm while making his way back to his feet! BUT THERE’S NORMAN WITH A BIG BOOT! NEARLY TAKING MR. DEDEDE’S HEAD RIGHT OFF HIS SHOULDERS! Norman continues to blindside Mr. DEDEDE, but now plays it smart and redirects his attention to Diamond Cage! Norman walks over to him, lifting him by his gut…
Jake Mercer: HOLY— GUTWRENCH SUPLEX! THE GUTWRENCH SUPLEX! SOMETHING FRESH FROM NORMAN’S ARSENAL! DIAMOND CAGE LANDING ON THAT ALREADY BANGED UP BACK OF HIS! Norman kneels down to Cage now, BATTERING and BASHING his fists into his head! He wants to see him bleed! Norman’s relentless in this state! And this has to be doing wonders to Cage! Norman pulls Cage up by his head… EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Cage goes staggering backwards on spaghetti legs! And ANOTHER EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Cage is leaned back against the ropes— RUNNING CLOTHESLINE FROM MR. DEDEDE! TAKING HIMSELF AND DIAMOND CAGE OUT OF THE RING! NOT THE BRIGHTEST THING DEDEDE’S DONE!
Matt Ryder: Mr. DEDEDE and Diamond Cage are attempting their best to get back to a vertical base; using the apron for leverage! Mr. DEDEDE is up, Cage throws a fist! Cage is up, Cage throws another fist! There another— no! DEDEDE blocks it! OH MY GOD! NORMAN HELLION OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE OUT ONTO BOTH MR. DEDEDE AND DIAMOND CAGE! ALL THREE MEN ARE LEFT DAMAGED ON THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! They’re hardly even moving an inch here folks! Hellion looks up at the ceiling with those glazed eyes— Cage might not even be breathing! Mr. DEDEDE trying to take the cobwebs off!
Stew-O: I think Norman’s starting to stir! He’s slowly trying to make his way back to both of his feet! Pulling up on the apron… as DEDEDE leans against the barricade, using that as his assistance! Cage is still out of it— GOOD LORD, ALMIGHTY! THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE TO MR. DEDEDE! WAIT, MR. DEDEDE DUCKS UNDER IT! BACK BODY DROP INTO THE CROWD! NORMAN FALLS SPINE FIRST ONTO THE CLEARED OUT CHAIRS IN THE FRONT ROW! HE’S A GONER NOW! I THINK THIS MATCH HAS JUST BECAME A ONE VERSUS ONE!
Jake Mercer: Mr. DEDEDE leans back against the barricade, taking a look over his shoulder, then back to Diamond Cage with such a sadistic smirk on his face… he pushes himself off the barricade, rushing himself at Cage! KNEE DROP TO HIS THROAT! THERE GOES DIAMOND CAGE’S WINDPIPE! DEDEDE MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR HIM TO EVEN BREATHE! DEDEDE grabs Cage by the hair and tosses him under the bottom rope! Sliding in along with him! Cage is pushing himself up to his hands and knees… BUT DEDEDE TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A DRIVE BY KICK TO HIS GUT!
Matt Ryder: AND I THINK DEDEDE IS SETTING HIM UP… HE IS! THE PEOPLE’S ELBOW! HE RUNS OFF THE ROPES, HOPPING OVER CAGE’S BODY THE FIRST TIME AROUND! SPRINTING OFF THE ROPES ONE MORE TIME! NO! CAGE PUSHES HIMSELF UP! HE GOT HIM! HE GOT HIM! THE MERCY RULE! DEDEDE JUST RAN RIGHT INTO THE MERCY RULE! CAGE CRAWLS TO THE PIN ATTEMPT SLOWLY… AND HE DRAPES HIS ARM OVER DEDEDE’S CHEST! HE’S ABOUT TO WIN IT ALL FOR VOLTAGE!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!….. THRRRRRRRRREE—
Stew-O: NO, NO, NO! MR. DEDEDE BARELY MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! Diamond Cage with his body still toppled over DEDEDE’s, looks toward the referee for confirmation… he can’t believe it! Neither can I! Cage slowly pushing himself back to his feet, lifting up Mr. DEDEDE with him… But DEDEDE starts fighting back! This guy isn’t human! Throwing wild fists to Cage, but Cage rapidly beats DEDEDE in the face with his own closed fists! AND CAGE PULLS HIM AND DEDEDE UP! A SECOND MERCY RULE! NO, DEDEDE PUSHES OUT OF IT! AND A SHOULDER THRUST TO CAGE’S STOMACH! HE PULLS CAGE IN! THE DDD-O-MATIC CONNECTS! IT CONNECTS!
Jake Mercer: Oh no… oh no! DEDEDE wants to throw salt to Cage’s wound! He’s backing himself into the corner, I know where this is leading! He wants that devastating spear of his! He’s begging and pleading for Cage to pull himself back to his feet! Cage is doing so! Barely! Cage is up… DEDEDE bursts out of the corner! AND IT’S NORMAN! NORMAN JUST ROLLED IN THE RING AND CAUGHT DEDEDE WITH A GUTWRENCH POWERBOMB! And Cage charges at Norman— SUPERKICK TO CAGE! CAGE’S JAW MAY HAVE BEEN BROKEN FROM THAT SICK BOOT! Cage falls into the corner! Cage charges at Cage!
Matt Ryder: BODY AVALANCHE CONNECTING! CAGE IS SENT STAGGERING FORWARD… ONLY TO BE CLOCKED WITH A ROLLING ELBOW FROM NORMAN TO THE BACK OF CAGE’S HEAD! BUT CAGE FALLS STOMACH FIRST ONTO AN ALREADY DOWNED DEDEDE! THIS IS A PIN ATTEMPT AND I DON’T THINK NORMAN REALIZES…
Stew-O: NORMAN HELLION RUSHES AND BREAKS BY KICKING CAGE OFF OF DEDEDE! Norman almost lost by not paying attention there! But Norman PULLS DEDEDE up like a rag doll— GRAND SLAM! THE GRAND SLAM! DEDEDE WITH THE GRAND SLAM— NO! NORMAN SMASHES HIS ELBOW INTO DEDEDE’S HEAD! BUT CAGE! CAGE ROLLS DEDEDE UP!
Jake Mercer: NORMAN BREAKS IT UP AGAIN! DEDEDE rolls back up onto his feet! DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE CONNECTS! AND IT MAY OF SEALED DEDEDE’S FATE IN THIS MATCH! BUT LOOK! CAGE FROM BEHIND! CAGE SPINS NORMAN AROUND! KICK TO THE GUT! AND HE PULLS HIM IN… MERCY RULE! THE MERCY RULE— BUT CAGE’S BACK CAN’T HOLD UP THE WEIGHT OF NORMAN! HE CAN HARDLY LIFT HIM OFF THE GROUND! AND NORMAN LIFTS CAGE UP THIS TIME! HE’S GOT HIM SET UP! THE FRACTURED INTENT! HE GOT IT! IT CONNECTS AS HE CONVERTS IT INTO A PIN!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!….. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!….. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… NORMANNNNNNNNNNN HELLLLLLIOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!
(“The Devil In I” by Slipknot plays loudly throughout the arena… as the referee hands Norman Hellion his Answers World Championship and raises his hand in celebration)
Matt Ryder: MY GOD, BROSKIS! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MATCH TO CLOSE OUT THE YEAR! ALL THREE MEN CAME IN NOTHING CLOSE TO 100%, BUT THEY STILL GAVE IT ALL THEY COULD! AS CAGE AND DEDEDE FALL SHORT OF A VICTORY, NORMAN BRINGS THIS ONE HOME TO SHOWDOWN! THE A+ BRAND WINS IT ALL TONIGHT, PROVING IT’S DOMINANCE!
Jake Mercer: You think one match determines whether or not your brand has quality? Please, you try competing in the shape Diamond Cage was in and come back to me. However, I can’t disagree with you— this was a perfect way to end the year with these three classic extremists, soon to be elitists!
Stew-O: And don’t forget all the hell Mr. DEDEDE had to go through to even retain his World Heavyweight Championship! Everyone disregarding how injured he was, like come on now!
Matt Ryder: And Norman Hellion wasn’t beaten, battered, and bruised from successfully winning his very first Answers World Championship? Come back to me with better excuses.
Jake Mercers: Girls, girls, both of your brands look inferior to Voltage— so please, stop your moaning. It’s really unneeded, you’re taking away from this man’s triumphant victory!
Stew-O: Yeah, whatever… congratulations to Norman and the brand he represents.
Matt Ryder: Thanks, but this is all the the time we have broskis! As we say goodbye to extreme and hello to elite.. signing off!
