“The Smoke On The Horizon”
(EAW Intro Plays… )
(“Rise” by Sixx A.M. hits the speakers when the camera rolls inside of The Izod Center as the camera displays the red-and-white fireworks that shoot all over stage, which are followed with cheers of the crowd as they all hold their signs high in the air! It only takes a moment until we are met with the commentators at ringside in Stew-O and Jake Mercer!)
Stew-O: HELLO AND WE ARE AT OUR FINAL SHOW BEFORE THE BIGGEST EVENT OF THE EAW’S HISTORY DAWNS UPON US! WELCOME TO FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY… WHERE WE FIGHT ON FRIDAY NIGHTS! Pain for Pride X is around the corner and with that, we have a major main event that is scheduled to close out the show!
Jake Mercer: Of course we do, Stew! We are Dynasty and we like to have amazing matches for our fans! Tonight, we will have our EAW World Heavyweight Champion in Jamie O’Hara compete against one of the Dynasty men that shall take part in the Cash in the Vault, Scott Oasis! A rematch from the King of Elite Finals to take place right here!
Stew-O: It was a brutal match the first time these two met, but will the rematch bode the same results? Don’t forget that we also will have Xavier Williams taking a moment to reflect on his return to EAW too! As for more action, we’ll have Target Smiles of the Extreme Enigma Elimination Match and we now know will be to christen a new EAW Openweight Champion, he will compete against the other Cash in the Vault participant of Dynasty in TLA!
Jake Mercer: People are ANXIOUS to see what’s going to happen between those two tonight as this will be their first time meeting inside of a Dynasty ring! However, we have much more to come tonight, but let’s start things off like we always do WITH SOME ACTION! TAKE IT AWAY, RING ANNOUNCER!
(The camera turns away from the commentary table and makes its way over to ring where the ring announcer is standing with his microphone in hand.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall…
(‘Amen and Attack’ by Powerwolf erupts from the speakers as enters into a bright white spotlight. He screams “DEUS VULT” at the top of his lungs before descending to the ring)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Camelot, Ontario, Canada…weighing in at 13.5 Stone…”The Crusader of EAW”… SIR. KILLIAN. CHAAAARRRRLLEEMAAAAGNE!!!
Jake Mercer: Is that…is that Kelly Hackenschmidt?
Stew-O: Not anymore, Jake. He has come back as a new man. Poised to make bigger impact this time around.
Jake Mercer: What the hell? As if it wasn’t enough hassle getting my tongue around his first stupidly hard to pronounce name and he comes up with another one?
Stew-O: Neither name was all that hard to say. I think you’re just scared of change, Jake.
Jake Mercer: Don’t condescend me, Stew. I’m a simple man. I just want people to not complicate my job by changing their names every six minutes.
(The music fades to silence. A determined Sheridan Muller enters the stage and strides briskly down the ramp as the crowd fills the silence with boos.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, from Munich, Germany…Weighing in at 135 pounds…SHERIDAN MULLER!!!
Stew-O: Well here’s a name you’ll find familiar. Sheridan Muller. Looking to gain some momentum before representing Dynasty in the 24/7 contract battle royal at Pain For Pride. Don’t you wish she had a little more flair though?
Jake Mercer: Listen, Stew. Sheridan has her priorities straight. No bells. No whistles. No fancy dress costumes. Just focused, efficient use of her enviable powers to get the job done. And that is exactly what she is going to do here tonight.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: Both competitors tie up after the bell AND SHERIDAN WITH A STRONG KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION! Sheridan starting hot here and pressing the advantage with a combination of heavy punches that send Sir Killian reeling. Charlemagne finds himself cornered as Sheridan continues to unload. He is forced to duck his upper body through the ropes and the official steps in to hold Muller back.
Jake Mercer: “Sir” Killian on the back foot right from the word go. He’s just wasting time now but Sheridan doesn’t waste anything. While he’s plucking up the courage to pull his whole torso into the ring, she is surely planning her next move. Killian shoots back in and dips for the double leg takedown. But Sher’s prepared. She sprawls well and transitions smoothly into a side headlock… BIG BULLDOG! MULLER SLAMS CHARLEMAGNE FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS WITH BOTH HANDS! Killian bounces back up with admirable quickness but Sher is back on him. NO! Hip toss catches Sheridan Muller and drops her onto her back. Killian zips into the ropes, rebounding RIGHT INTO A MASSIVE LARIAT! MULLER JUST TOOK HIS HEAD OFF!
Stew-O: She’s looking to prove you right, Jake. Sir Killian is a quick guy but Sheridan has just looked a half step ahead of him this whole time. She knocked the wind right out of him and now she’s sliding in behind to apply the rear waistlock. Here it is. GERMAN SUPLEX! SHERIDAN MULLER ARCHING HER BACK MAGNIFICENTLY TO DROP SIR KILLIAN CHARLEMAGNE DIRECTLY ONTO THE BASE OF HIS SKULL!
Jake Mercer: I think that’s a wrap. He’s out. So much for his grand reimagining. And yet…Sheridan’s not letting go. She’s not even bridging for the pin. SHE’S RISING BACK UP, WAISTLOCK STILL STRAPPED IN! A SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX COMES CRASHING DOWN!
Stew-O: AND SHE DRAGS THE LIMP KILLIAN CHARLEMAGNE UP AGAIN! A THIRD! A THIRD VERTEBRAE CRUNCHING SUPLEX! IT JUST DOESN’T STOP. RINSE. LATHER. REPEAT. SHERIDAN MULLER IS GOING TO AN UNCHARACTERISTIC EXCESS HERE AS THE OFFICIAL BEGS HER TO STOP!
Jake Mercer: SHE’S SENDING OUT A MESSAGE! NO MATTER HOW MANY SUPLEXES SHE HAS TO THROW. NO MATTER HOW MANY CROWNS SHE HAS TO CRACK. SHE’S LOOKING TO DOMINATE AT PAIN FOR PRIDE JUST LIKE SHE HAS TODAY. SHE WANTS EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT SHE’S WALKING OUT WITH THAT 24/7 CONTRACT!!
Stew-O: After what must be a baker’s dozen worth of suplexes, Sheridan dumps Sir Killian down, planting a boot on his chest as she stares down at the official.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(The official timidly raises Sheridan Muller’s arm as she stares blankly into the vociferously angered crowd. EMT’s race into the ring to check on the unconscious Sir Killian Charlemagne.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… SHERIDAN MULLER!!!
Jake Mercer: What did I tell you? No bells. No whistles. She says what she needs to say in the only one way that gets everybody’s attention. The universal language of action.
Stew-O: It’s hard to argue with that. She put on a clinic and then somewhere along the line it turned into an abattoir. I wouldn’t want to be in that Battle Royal come Pain for Pride.
(The camera turns to the backstage area where we see Kaise Boëtius standing in the backstage area, wearing a grey suit and a red tie, looking with a bit of confidence gleaming from his eye as he looks up in the air. The swagger and arrogance radiating from him before he turns his attention to the camera as he slides his hand into his coat pocket.)
Kaise Boëtius: If last week wasn’t enough an introduction for the world to who I am, let me remind you. My name is Kaise Boëtius and you’re looking at the future of this company. I’ve made my debut into this world of yours and right now, I’m not too impressed. I was met with Johnny Nova as a challenge and do you honestly believe that I felt that way towards him? Challenged? No, Johnny Nova was a breeze and a simple first step on the path to becoming what I desire to be here in EAW: a champion. From the weakling that stepped before me inside of the ring last week to the General Manager of Dynasty, I made an impact on my debut to make sure that I was recognized. I made sure that when the bell was rung and my hand was raised high above, there wouldn’t be a face in the crowd or watching from around the world that would forget who I am. Our honorable General Manager in Sebastian Monroe, he was able to grace you with the privilege of seeing yours truly make his Pain for Pride debut at the tenth edition of it inside of the 24/7 Battle Royal Match!
I’ve never been inside of this match, but I do have to say that the prize that hangs in the balance is very tempting. A championship opportunity whenever I want it, no matter the title or moment that I desire to have, and all I will have to do is present said-contract to the referee. Any moron would get wide-eyed at the chance to strike on this opportunity and Mr. Monroe, he gave me the chance to receive it. I’m sure there will be a plethora of talent in my scenario, a talent that hasn’t been too much embraced by the peons in the audience against names that are very renown, all for the opportunity at that contract. Many of my ilk have been placed into this match and dropped out at the drop of a hat, but I’m not here to fret upon it. No, because embrace the challenge of this match as my destiny has been written out for me unlike the other men that will enter into this brawl of a chance at gold! It is my destiny to become the winner of this match and if fate would like to twist its path into another direction, it shall bring the fury of Kaise Boëtius. As for the others that shall take part, they might as well punch their ticket out, because there’s only one winner for this match. You’ve been introduced to him.
(Kaise Boëtius dips down for the bow before he returns up with a confident smile on his face, leaving the backstage area for the camera to fade out.)
(The camera returns to ringside with the camera directed towards the ring announcer in the ring, only for it to turn over to show the eccentric Chris Paradise standing in his corner, as the ring announcer grabs the attention of the camera once more.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from The Outer Reaches of Your Mind… weighing in at 175 pounds… “The Omen” CHRIS PARADISE!
(Chris Paradise exits from the turnbuckle and does a gyration of his hips to the crowd before returning back into his corner.)
(“Es Irónico” by Bocca Meyers hits the speakers with the Dynasty fans of The Izod Center shooting to their feet at the arrival of El Irónico as he runs to the stage to taunt to the fans. He starts to slap hands with the crowd as he rushes down the ramp before he leaps onto the apron and rolls into the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, he is from Doncaster, England… weighing in at 195 pounds… “The Underdog from The Underclass” EEELLLLL IRRÓÓÓNNNIIICCCCOOOOO!!!
Stew-O: El Irónico has arrived tonight in The Izod Center as it has been announced that he will take part in The 24/7 Battle Royal and knowing him in these types of rules, you never know what you can expect him to do to keep himself from being eliminated!
Jake Mercer: The crowd surfing onto the barricade that led to his botched attempt into the ring, the crowd surfing from The Grand Rampage Match that has still been put into question, you never know what could happen in a battle royal with this man! However, that’s the whole fun of El Irónico!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: The bell has sounded from the referee as Chris Paradise and El Irónico are now ready for a fight WITH CHRIS PARADISE RUSHING IN FOR A LARIAT TO TAKE DOWN IRÓNICO! A KICK STRAIGHT TO THE SHIN! EL IRÓNICO JUST NAILS HIM WITH A KICK TO THE SHIN AS PARADISE DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE! THIS IS DEFINITELY A BAD PLACE TO BE IN WHEN YOU’RE STANDING IN THE RING WITH EL IRÓNICO!
Jake Mercer: The crowd is going INSANE for him as El Irónico looks all around the ring as the fans are telling him to do it! DO IT, YOU IDIOT! IF YOU WANT TO WIN THIS MATCH, YOU NEED TO HIT IT! El Irónico hesitates for a moment as he starts to feel sorry for his competitor BUT IRÓNICO SHRUGS AND GRABS HIS ARMS TO HOOK HIM IN! MALICE IN SUNDERLAND! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT STRAIGHT INTO THE CANVAS! IRÓNICO SPIKED HIS HEAD RIGHT DOWN ONTO IT BEFORE HE ROLLS PARADISE ON HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE PIN!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Es Irónico” by Bocca Meyers plays in the background as the lovable El Irónico shoots up to his feet to have his hand raised by the referee!)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… EEELLLLL IRRÓÓÓNNNIIICCCCOOOOO!!!
Stew-O: WHAT A SHOCK! EL IRÓNICO HAS JUST WON THIS MATCH WITH EASE! This man is heading into the battle royal with quite a bit of momentum riding behind him! An great victory here tonight on Dynasty with this entire crowd behind him!
(El Irónico rushes over to the fans and dives into the crowd, taking this moment to celebrate with them about this victory, as Chris Paradise still lies unconscious in the middle of the ring.)
(The camera fades out and returns with back into a standard EAW ring surrounded by four metal structures, the camera moving upward into the sky, until we see four cables on these structures combined into the shape of an X to meet into the middle where the EAW New Breed Championship hangs in the middle.)
Narrator: The Ultimate X Match… constructed with four towers of steel merged together with four cable to form an X structure! Hanging in the dead center of the formation, the EAW New Breed Championship! This match has been a highlight of the Pain for Pride tradition, but has only recently been adopted as a part of it! With this being the second-ever opportunity this match has been included into the Pain for Pride card, let’s look back as the first chance we saw this match takes place on the grand stage!
(The camera reveals the Pain for Pride 8 stage under the same conditions of The Ultimate X! The entries of TLA, J.D. Damon, Charlie Scene, and the then-champion Stark added into the match as they took part in the battle royal!)
Narrator: Four men would take part in the ground-breaking and historic match that would change the course of the New Breed Division when it came to Pain for Pride! On this night, these men would take extraordinary risk and put their bodies on the line in a manner that EAW had never seen before, all for the chance to be crowned the EAW New Breed Champion!
(A replay is shown of Stark leaping off the cables for the Shooting Star Press down onto Charlie Scene and TLA, J.D. Damon with the top rope Death By Damon, both TLA and Damon fighting in the middle only for the end result to happen with TLA unhooking the championship to become the new champion!)
Narrator: These men created a highlight that was in serious demand to return and now, at the biggest Pain for Pride in EAW’s history, it marks its return! Four new challengers look to dare the mighty structure in an attempt to etch their name in history as one of the few to conquer the challenge! However, who will be the one to climb to the middle and claim their prize? Will it be the dominant champion that has been able to go through all challenges and persevere?
(The video shows a highlight of Lucas Johnson as he holds the EAW New Breed Championship on his shoulder.)
Narrator: Will it be the technical mastermind that has been desperate for a chance to prove his worth as a singles fighter?
(The video pulls up a highlight of Finnegan Wakefield as he cracks a genuine smile to the camera with confidence.)
Narrator: Will it be the veteran underdog that hopes to return to his championship glory for a second time?
(The video displays Chris Elite shadow boxing for a moment before crossing his arms with confidence as Big Mike stands behind him.)
Narrator: Finally, will it be the driven and determined rockstar of the New Breed Division that hopes to turn all of his charisma into championship gold?
(The video shows another highlight with Moongoose McQueen as he air guitars for a bit until he taunts to the camera.)
Narrator: Whoever it will, the facts are that these men will do whatever it takes to leave as EAW New Breed Champion. The question will be, who will go above and beyond the laws of gravity to do it? Who will go past the limits that stand before them and be crowned EAW New Breed Champion?
(The camera returns to the EAW New Breed Championship hanging in the middle of the Ultimate X structure as the show cuts to commercial break.)
(The show returns from commercial break with the ring announcer placed as the focus while he stands in the center of the ring.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
(“Cry Thunder” by DragonForce plays to a nice ovation from the crowd, as Finnegan Wakefield makes his way out from behind the curtain. He eyes the crowd with a smile on his face and his hands behind his back, before making his way down the ramp…)
Ring Announcer: Making his way to the ring, from Bury St Edmunds, West Suffolk, England! Weighing in at 181 pounds … he is THE WRESTLING ARTIST … FFFIIINNNNEEGGGAANNN WWWWAAAAAKKKEEEFFIIIEEELLLDDD!!
Stew-O: And we have a big match coming up right now. Two participants in the Ultimate X match in a week’s time at Pain For Pride will be going one on one here. Finnegan Wakefield, and Showdown’s Chris Elite!
Jake Mercer: Both men will be fighting to see who can have more momentum going into the biggest event in the history of wrestling! This ought to be good!
(“Lord Knows” by Meek Mill plays to boos, as Chris Elite and Big Mike come out from behind the curtain and immediately make their way down the aisle…)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, being accompanied to the ring by Bike Mike … from Brooklyn, New York! Weighing in at 210 pounds … THE NEW, CCCCHHRRRIIISSS EEELLLIIIIITTTTTEEEE!!
Stew-O: And Chris Elite has been making his presence known as of late. This man wants to be New Breed Champion, and Jake I believe with the talent of this individual and his drive, he may very well be the new champion coming out of Pain For Pride X.
Jake Mercer: That’s because Chris Elite is one of the best talents in this whole damn company, but nobody ever sees to recognise his greatness. Seriously underrated, and I have all the faith in the world in this man.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: That’s the bell, and we are underway. Both men wasting no time as they walk straight up to one another before locking up. The two attempt to push each other to the ropes – almost like a tug of war here! Chris Elite gets the upper hand however, by rolling around towards the back of Finnegan and applying a headlock. Finnegan now trying his best to push Chris Elite forward to the ropes, but it’s no use as Chris stands his ground strongly! Finnegan using his agility to roll around the body of Chris, grabs him by the legs and pulls him to the mat for a quick roll up cover, but Chris gets his shoulders off the mat before the referee can count to one. Both men back on their feet, and Finnegan grabs Chris by the left leg for a single leg takedown! Finnegan rolls back up to his feet and looks to apply some sort of leg submission move here, but Chris is quick to reverse and use both legs to push him back into the ropes!
Jake: Finnegan uses those ropes for leverage as Chris sits up! Finnegan attempts a RUNNING KNEE!! NO! Chris falls back, and KIPS UP! Finnegan rushes towards Chris, and Chris backs up to the ropes! Chris grabs Finnegan by the arm and tries to flip him over the top rope, but Finnegan positions himself well! He instead flips onto the ropes, using it for leverage to flip BACK ONTO HIS FEET AND DELIVERS A SINGLE ARM TAKEDOWN TO CHRIS ELITE! CHRIS ELITE HOWEVER SEES IT COMING, AND HANDSTANDS HIS WAY BACK TO HIS FEET! HOW IN THE WORLD?! BOTH MEN BACK UP TO A VERTICAL BASE NOW! FINNEGAN ATTEMPTS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK, BUT CHRIS ELITE BLOCKS IT! CHRIS ATTEMPTS A LEG SWEEP, BUT FINNEGAN JUMPS OVER THE LEG, AVOIDING THE MOVE ALTOGETHER! CHRIS SITTING ON THE MAT NOW, FINNEGAN ATTEMPTS AN ENSIGUIRI BUT ONCE AGAIN CHRIS ELITE FALLS BACK AND KIPS UP! BOTH MEN NOW ON THEIR FEET ONCE MORE! ELITE ATTEMPTS A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE, BUT FINNEGAN DUCKS UNDER IT AND BOTH MEN HEAD TOWARDS THE ROPES! THEY REBOUND BACK AND THEY BOTH HIT A RUNNING BIG BOOT ON EACH OTHER, AND FALL TO THE MAT! WHAT IN THE WORLD DID WE JUST SEE?!
Stew-O: UNBELIEVABLE WRESTLING, JAKE! These fans are 100% in approval, as they give that sequence a round of applause! Both men in a daze, slowly get back to their feet. Chris holds onto the ropes as he shakes off the cobwebs, before turning around! Finnegan Wakefield comes ROARING THROUGH AND CROSSBODIES HIMSELF AND CHRIS OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE FLOOR AND … WHAT ON EARTH?! THEY BOTH LAND ON THEIR FEET, WITH FINNEGAN BEHIND CHRIS, WRAPPING HIS ARMS AROUND HIS STOMACH AND FLIPPING HIM OVER HIS HEAD FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX OVER OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE!!
Jake Mercer: NO FUCKING WAY! CHRIS ELITE LANDS ON HIS FEET ON TOP OF THE ANNOUNCE TABLE. WHAT ON EARTH ARE WE SEEING IN THIS MATCH?! Finnegan has no idea, as he rises to his feet with a smirk on his face. He turns around, but Chris Elite … MOONSAULT OFF OF OUR TABLE ONTO FINN! The first big offensive move in this match, and Finn is down! Chris immediately however lifts Finn to his feet and rolls him back into the ring! He climbs up onto the ring apron, before springboarding and DELIVERING AN ELBOW DROP!
Stew-O: NO! Finnegan gets his knees up and Chris’ arm falls through the gap! A CROSS ARMBREAKER MIGHT BE APPLIED HERE! CHRIS KNOWS THE PREDICAMENT HE’S IN RIGHT NOW, AND IS QUICK TO THINK OF A VIABLE SOLUTION! He does his best to rise to his feet, so Finn’s shoulders are on the mat! The referee drops for a pin, but Finnegan releases. Both men back on their feet, eye each other down! Another big applause from these fans here. Finn gets his arms up ready to throw punches, but Chris Elite raises his middle fingers up! The attitude of this man! Finnegan shakes his head smiling. Finn once again rushes towards Chr-
Jake Mercer: BOX OFFICE SMASH! BOX OFFICE SMASH! WHAT THE HELL?! ALREADY?! FINNEGAN STUMBLES BACK INTO THE ROPES, TRYING TO STAY ON HIS FEET, BUT HE IS DAZED! CHRIS ELITE HITS THE SUPERKICK EARLY. Finnegan is holding onto those ropes for dear life! He’s trying to shake off the cobwebs now. Chris, almost frustrated, storms over to Finnegan and-
Stew-O: OH MY GOD! FINNEGAN ROLLS AROUND CHRIS ELITE …. ANDROMEDA!!! THE ANDROMEDA CONNECTS, AND CHRIS ELITE LANDS RIGHT ON HIS NECK! WITH WHATEVER MOMENTUM FINN HAD LEFT, HE HITS THE ANDROMEDA AND BOTH MEN ARE DOWN ONCE AGAIN! THESE FANS GIVE BOTH MEN A STANDING OVATION!
Jake Mercer: What incredible action here on Dynasty tonight! Both of these men are trying to showcase just how talented they both are, and with Pain For Pride X just around the corner with a championship match up for grabs for the two! It’s almost like they’re trying to raise their stock. Both men are doing their best to recover, as they both roll towards each other attempting to pin one another! They begin slapping at each other’s chest, before both getting up onto their knees and trading rights and lefts! Finnegan with a HUGE SLAP ACROSS THE RIGHT CHEEK OF CHRIS, AND YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUND OF THAT SLAP UP IN THE CHEAP SEATS! A red mark is left on Chris’ face, as Chris now shoves Finnegan over before rolling back to his feet! Finn is up and Chris with an ELITE CUTTER!!!
Stew-O: NO! FINN THROWS CHRIS TO THE MAT! LOOK OUT! KNIGHTS LANCER BY FINN! …NO! CHRIS SLAPS THE LEG OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE KIPPING UP FOR A THIRD TIME THIS MATCH! Finn shakes off that leg, but isn’t up quick enough as Chris Elite comes ROARING IN WITH THE WHO SHOT YA! PENALTY KICK CONNECTS! Chris exits to the ring apron, and waits for Finn to get back up to a vertical base! Finn slowly rises to his feet, and stumbles back. Chris springboards aaaand … DRAGON FIST!!!! NO! NO! FINN MOTIONS OUT OF THE WAY AND CHRIS LANDS HARD! CHRIS SITS UP AND … PENALTY KICK BY FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD!!! THAT TURNED THE LIGHTS OUT FOR CHRIS! CHRIS ELITE IS OUT, BUT FINN IS NOT DONE! FINNEGAN LIFTS THE ALMOST UNCONSCIOUS CHRIS TO HIS FEET AND … ANDROMEDA!!! ANOTHER ANDROMEDA! HERE IS THE PIN! THIS ONE IS OVER!
Referee: OOOOOONNNNEEEEE!!! TTTTTWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!! TTTHHHHRRREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Cry Thunder” by DragonForce plays as Finnegan rises to his feet with a smile on his face. The referee raises his arm in victory…)
Ring Announcer: The winner of this match … FFFIIINNNNEEGGGAANNN WWWWAAAAAKKKEEEFFIIIEEELLLDDD!!
Stew-O: Unbelievable action! I didn’t want that match to end!
Jake Mercer: For once Stew, I agree with you. Both men came into this match with something to prove, and I think they both proved the message they were trying to get across to everybody. Although Finnegan walks away with the victory here, props to Chris Elite for that … well … elite display!
Stew-O: Pain For Pride X is just around the corner for these two men! I can’t wait to see the match that they will put together inside of Ultimate X!
(Finnegan Wakefield continues to celebrate his victory in tonight’s match, going over to the turnbuckle and taunting to the fans, while Chris Elite starts to bring himself back to his feet.)
(The camera fades backstage with Sebastian Monroe standing backstage in the middle of a interview area with a television set behind him with the Pain for Pride X logo on it.)
Sebastian Monroe: DYNASTY FANS! Last week, I told you a number of participants that would be competing in the time-honored tradition that new rookies and old veterans alike take place in for Pain for Pride… The 24/7 Battle Royal! Tonight, I announce the final names of the people that will represent Dynasty in this match that could very well have a future champion arise out of it. So, I won’t keep any of you waiting as I’m sure that you would like to see who these people are. For my first announcement, he is one of the bright stars that have recently been introduced to you…
(Sebastian Monroe motions his hand over to the television set to reveal… JOHNNY NOVA!!!)
Sebastian Monroe: JOHNNY NOVA! This kid has a lot of heart and a lot of potential in him to do some great things and even though he didn’t get the victory he might have been looking for in this match, I’m sure that he’s going to impress with the right opportunity! Furthermore, let’s continue with our next pick that was a former contender to the EAW New Breed Championship…
(Sebastian Monroe looks behind him to the television set to reveal… CHRIS PARADISE!!!)
Sebastian Monroe: CHRIS PARADISE! One of the most eccentric and strange elitists that I’ve had to honor to sign on Dynasty! It’s definitely going to be interesting to see how he’s able to contend inside of this match, but we definitely have more names in store for you fine folks! Up next, he’s a very proud man that’s been itching for a fight and is ready to take this chance by the horns…
(Sebastian Monroe points directly towards the television set to reveal… SHAKER JONES!!!)
Sebastian Monroe: SHAKER JONES! He will join the fray for a chance to be able to win the contract for a championship opportunity of his choosing, but we shall see what happens when he’s inside of the match! Up next is a man that has faith that he will be able to go through the challenges that stand before him, but even though he failed to impress in the match, I’ve been allowed to turn the other cheek for this man…
(Sebastian Monroe turns his attention back over toward the television set to reveal…SIR KILLIAN CHARLEMAGNE!!!)
Sebastian Monroe: SIR KILLIAN CHARLEMAGNE! A man of faith that has placed his chances with God as a crusader to be able to win this championship and prove himself! Now, I’ve been given the final name that shall be included into The 24/7 Battle Royal and it shall be… Are you serious? He’s just been signed? Well, the final entry for Dynasty into the 24/7 Battle Royal is making his return to EAW in this match and is a former EAW New Breed Champion and EAW Tag Team Champion!
(Sebastian Monroe looks back to the titantron with a smile on his face… RYAN SAVAGE!!!)
Sebastian Monroe: RYAN SAVAGE! A man that is very familiar to the people of EAW and has been just here recently signed to Dynasty, he shall be given an opportunity to compete for the 24/7 Contract and I’m pretty sure that he will ecstatic to be involved in the show! With that said, I hope that all of the Dynasty fans are happy with the choices of those men that have been inserted into the match and we hope to see you all for Pain for Pride X!
(Sebastian Monroe waves at the fans goodbye before he takes his leave from the interview area when the show cuts to commercial break.)
(The show returns from commercial break with the ring announcer placed as the focus while he stands in the center of the ring.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is set for one fall!!!
(“You Will Know Our Name” by ACE+ hits to cheers from the crowd, and Moongoose McQueen comes out looking focused.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Austin, Texas, weighing in at 236 pounds… THE DUKE!!!… MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN!!!!
Stew-O: Moongoose McQueen is going up against one of his Pain for Pride opponents in the New Breed Champion, Lucas Johnson, just one week before they collide with Finnegan Wakefield and Chris Elite in Ultimate X! Moongoose McQueen feels entitled to the New Breed Championship after dominating in June, with a huge win over Jacob Senn at Burning Desire, and strong performances against Mr. DEDEDE and Jamie O’Hara on weekly episodes of Dynasty! Moongoose has a long and storied career behind him, but winning the New Breed Championship at Pain for Pride will surely pen in the newest chapter of his story – and begin his path to achieve everything he ever hopes to!
(“Pain” by CFO$ hits to a roar of boos from the crowd, as Lucas Johnson walks out, holding up the EAW New Breed Championship and staring down Moongoose McQueen in the ring.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Atlanta, Georgia, weighing in at 270 pounds… HE IS THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION!!!… LUCAS JOHNSON!!!!
Jake Mercer: MY BOY LUCAS JOHNSON!!! This man is a future World Champion, mark my words, at least if his current New Breed Championship run is anything to go by! He has completely dismantled and destroyed the entirety of the New Breed division, and as a result, the level of competition he now faces for his title has greatly increased! I will say, Lucas Johnson has thus far been struggling against his opponents. They’ve gotten the upper hand on him over the past couple of weeks… But they’re just adding fuel to the fire, and come for Pain for Pride, Lucas Johnson will get retribution.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: This Pain for Pride preview match is underway! Lucas and Moongoose come face to face, looking for an opening to lock up… Lucas sees one first! He grabs Moongoose around the neck and pulls him in for the headlock – Moongoose easily slides out from underneath Lucas’ grip and spins around him, hooking one of his arms from behind, twisting it and applying pressure to the wrist! Lucas goes down to one knee, trying to take Moongoose down with the fireman’s carry… MOONGOOSE PRESSES A KNEE INTO LUCAS’ TAILBONE AND HOOKS HIS OTHER ARM AS WELL, ROLLING DOWN TO THE MAT ON HIS BACK, LOCKING LUCAS JOHNSON INTO THE SLEEPER HOLD!!!!
Jake Mercer: Moongoose is trying to wear Lucas Johnson out right off the bat! Lucas tries rolling in both directions horizontally on the map but Moongoose stays strategically positioned underneath him, wearing in that sleeper hold further and further… Moongoose rolls Lucas Johnson over onto his torso now, applying the sleeper hold while putting pressure down on the champ’s back… MY GOD!!! LUCAS JOHNSON IS STANDING UP!!! MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN IS LATCHED ONTO HIS BACK BUT LUCAS JOHNSON IS FORCING HIS WAY UP TO HIS FEET!!!…
Stew-O: Moongoose realizes the sleeper is moot, as he releases the hold and takes a step back… Lucas Johnson turns around… AND MOONGOOSE SWINGS WITH BOTH ARMS!!! DOUBLE AXE HANDLE!!! LUCAS JOHNSON CATCHES THE ARMS!!! LUCAS JOHNSON HAS MOONGOOSE TRAPPED BY THE ARMS AND LUNGES HIS LEG FORWARD, DRIVING HIS KNEE INTO MOONGOOSE’S MIDSECTION!!! Moongoose nearly doubles over from the impact but Johnson holds him up by that grip he has on the arms… AND JOHNSON PULLS MOONGOOSE IN!!! HE TRAPS THE ARMS OVER MOONGOOSE’S STOMACH AND GETS HIM IN THE WAISTLOCK… AND LUCAS JOHNSON SWINGS MOONGOOSE BACK!!! GERMAN SUPLEX!!!! LUCAS BRIDGES IT, PRESSING MOONGOOSE’S SHOULDERS BACK INTO THE MAT FOR THE PIN!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!…. TWO!!! —
Jake Mercer: Moongoose gets the kick out at two! Johnson pulls Moongoose up by the helm of his tights, NAILING HIM WITH AN ELBOW ON THE BACK OF THE NECK!!! Moongoose staggers forward but Johnson pulls him back in and once again traps the arms! Moongoose better come up with an answer pretty quick or else – JOHNSON TRAPS THE ARMS AGAIN!!! ANOTHER GERMAN – NO!!! MOONGOOSE FREES AN ARM AND NAILS A BACK ELBOW, PLANTING HIS FEET ON THE MAT!!!
Stew-O: Moongoose tries to create some separation but Johnson holds onto the tights and pulls Moongoose back in to try again… MOONGOOSE USES THE MOMENTUM IN HIS FAVOR AND JUMPS UP, TWISTING IN THE AIR… HOOKING LUCAS JOHNSON AROUND THE NECK AND PLANTING HIM BACK FIRST ON THE MAT WITH THE SLINGBLADE!!! Moongoose stands right back up while Johnson starts to get back up to his feet, running to the ropes… Johnson’s up on a vertical base… MOONGOOSE NAILS THE RUNNING FOREARM SMASH WITH FORCE!!! Moongoose falls to the mat but kips right back up, while Johnson rolls over, trying to get up to his feet! Moongoose sees Johnson crawling away trying to find space to get back up, then looks back to the ropes… MOONGOOSE RUNS TO THE ROPES!!! WHAT IS HE THINKING OF DOING?!!… MOONGOOSE SPRINGBOARDS!!!! MOONSAULT!!!!
Jake Mercer: YES!!!! JOHNSON REACHES TO THE ROPES AND PULLS HIMSELF OUT OF THE WAY OF MOONGOOSE’S TRAJECTORY!!! MOONGOOSE CRASHES TO THE MAT AND LUCAS JOHNSON PULLS HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET!!! THAT’S THE KIND OF EXPERT RING AWARENESS THAT A CHAMPION LIKE LUCAS JOHNSON HAS!!! LET’S BE HONEST, MOONGOOSE WAS NEVER GOING TO KEEP UP IN THE FIRST PLACE! HE COULDN’T BEAT MR. DEDEDE AND HE SURE AS HELL ISN’T GONNA BEAT MY MAN LUCAS JOHNSON!!!
Stew-O: Moongoose begins a slow crawl to the ropes, BUT LUCAS RUNS FORWARD AND CRACKS MOONGOOSE IN THE RIBS WITH A SHARP KICK!!! Moongoose rolls over from the impact and tries to reach for the ropes again… JOHNSON STEPS DOWN ON HIS WRIST, STOMPING AWAY AT MOONGOOSE’S ARM!!! MOONGOOSE REACHES FORWARD WITH HIS OTHER ARM AND GRABS THE ROPES!!! The referee tries to pull Lucas Johnson off of Moongoose… JOHNSON SHOVES THE REFEREE AWAY!!!
Jake Mercer: MOONGOOSE IS FINALLY MAKING HIS WAY BACK TO HIS FEET BUT JOHNSON TURNS HIM AROUND AND CLOCKS HIM WITH A STIFF SLAP TO THE FACE!!! JOHNSON TUCKS MOONGOOSE DOWN AND LIFTS HIM UP!!!… SWAGGER BOMB!!!!! NO!!! MOONGOOSE FLIPS OVER AND HOOKS JOHNSON AROUND THE NECK, PLANTING HIM DOWN WITH THE SLINGBLADE!!!! MOONGOOSE PUTS JOHNSON DOWN AND HOOKS HIM AROUND THE WAIST, TRYING TO DEADLIFT HIM OFF OF THE MAT!!! THE CHAMPION MIGHT BE JUST TOO HEAVY FOR MOONGOOSE – OH MY GOD!!! HE’S DOING IT!!! HE’S ACTUALLY DOING IT!!!!
Stew-O: LUCAS JOHNSON IS A MASSIVE MAN BUT MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN HAS NO ISSUE LIFTING HIM IN THE AIR!!! MOONGOOSE HAS JOHNSON UP BUT IS NOW STRUGGLING TO SWING HIM BACK FOR THE GERMAN SUPLEX!!! LUCAS JOHNSON IS TRYING HIS DAMNDEST TO FIGHT HIS WAY OUT OF MOONGOOSE’S GRIP!!!… JOHNSON PLANTS HIS FEET AND THROWS A BACK ELBOW!!! MOONGOOSE DODGES IT, MOVING HIS HEAD TO THE SIDE!!! MOONGOOSE REPOSITIONS HIS GRIP ON LUCAS JOHNSON!!!… AND SWINGS HIM BACK INTO THE MAT HEAD FIRST WITH THE SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX!!!!
Jake Mercer: I hate to say it but Moongoose may actually have the champ’s number here! Moongoose checks on his right arm, it did seem like one of the stomps to it was particularly nasty, but all seems to be fine on his end! Lucas Johnson is slowly pushing himself back up, one limb at a time, while Moongoose waits him out in the corner… Lucas Johnson is back up… HERE COMES MCQUEEN!!! DROP – JOHNSON’S GOT THE LEGS!!! TAKEDOWN!!! JOHNSON PLANTS MOONGOOSE DOWN AND HE’S ALL OVER HIM NOW, THROWING WHAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A BARRAGE OF FISTS AT MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN!!!
Stew-O: JOHNSON SWITCHES FROM FISTS TO ELBOWS NOW, TRYING TO ENSURE THAT MOONGOOSE DOESN’T GET BACK UP!!! JOHNSON IS PUMMELING AWAY AND WHILE MOONGOOSE KEEPS HIS ARMS UP IT ISN’T DOING HIM MUCH GOOD!!!… JOHNSON GRABS MOONGOOSE AROUND THE THROAT AND LIFTS HIM UP IN POSITION FOR THE CHOKESLAM!!!! JOHNSON HAS HIM UP!!!… AND HE BRINGS HIM DOWN — MOONGOOSE REACHES HIS ARMS OUT AND JABS LUCAS JOHNSON IN BETWEEN THE EYES, THROWING ONE FIST AFTER THE OTHER!!! JOHNSON STAGGERS BACK AND MOONGOOSE KICKS HIM IN THE GUT AND DROPS HIMSELF ON THE MAT, JABBING HIM AGAIN IN THE TEMPLE!!! MOONGOOSE IS FIGHTING DIRTY NOW BUT HE’S DOING WHAT HE HAS TO DO TO KEEP LUCAS JOHNSON AT BAY!!!
Jake Mercer: THIS IS DESPICABLE!!! LUCAS JOHNSON IS A FIGHTING CHAMPION AND MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN IS COMPLETELY DISRESPECTING THE SPIRIT OF COMPETITION!!! I SPIT AT HIS NAME!!! I SPIT AT HIS BLOODLINE!!! I SPIT AT HIS —
Stew-O: WE GET THE POINT JAKE!!! LOOK AT MOONGOOSE!!!! HE’S THROWING KNEE AFTER KNEE AT JOHNSON’S MIDSECTION, TRYING TO WEAR DOWN THE CHAMP TO HIS KNEES!!!

MOONGOOSE CRASHES ON THE MAT BEHIND JOHNSON, GETTING BACK UP… INTO JOHNSON’S GRASP!!! JOHNSON HAS MOONGOOSE BY THE ARM – MOONGOOSE JUMPS UP AND CONNECTS THE HIGH IMPACT KNEE STRIKE TO THE CHEST CAVITY!!! JOHNSON STAGGERS BACK BUT HE STILL HAS MOONGOOSE IN HIS CLUTCHES… JOHNSON POWERS THROUGH THE PAIN OF THAT KNEE AND PICKS HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS!!!
Jake Mercer: YES!!! FINISH HIM!!! HIT THAT F-5 — OH MY GOD NO!!! MOONGOOSE SLIDES OFF!!! AND HE PRESSES HIS KNEE INTO THE BACK OF JOHNSON’S NECK, DRIVING HIM INTO THE MAT!!! THE CALF BRANDING!!!! MOONGOOSE PINS JOHNSON AND HOOKS THE LEG!!! KICK OUT CHAMP!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!…. TWO!!!!….. THREE!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“You Will Know Our Name” hits to a chorus of boos from the crowd as Lucas Johnson stands up in victory.)
Ring Announcer: HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY WAY OF PINFALL… MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN!!!!
Stew-O: WOW!!! IF THAT WAS ANY INDICATION OF WHAT’S TO COME AT PAIN FOR PRIDE… THEN WE’RE IN FOR A HELL OF AN ULTIMATE X MATCH!!! Both of these men want the New Breed title more than anything, and are willing to do anything it takes to win! Lucas Johnson’s brute strength is his most powerful skill, but in an environment like Ultimate X, facing men like Moongoose McQueen, he may desperately need a switch up in style! As for Moongoose, he just gained a huge deal of momentum heading into Pain for Pride!
(The camera pans back to Moongoose standing up on the top rope, celebrating as he looks up to the PFP sign, while the show cuts to commercial break.)
(The show returns from commercial break with the camera panning over to the stage… )
(S.O.A.R. by Devour The Day erupts from the speakers as we see Jacob Senn step out to the stage with a confident smirk on his face as he marches to the stage. He raises his hands in the double gun taunt with the pyrotechnics shooting up all around the stage as he walks down the ramp to make his way to the ring.)
Stew-O: Last week, Jacob Senn came out here and spat vile words towards the EAW Interwire Champion and took delight in the fact that he was able to bash that Equalizer into him, leaving Mr. DEDEDE’s chances at appearing at Pain for Pride X into question! Now, he returns inside The Izod Center with the intention of meeting his opponent in the ring for one last time!
Jake Mercer: AREN’T YOU EXCITED? The face of Dynasty as a whole and the man that will soon succeed Mr. DEDEDE on his throne at the top of the EAW universe, he will be able to stand in the ring with him to allow him to be noticed as the next victim on his punishment! Boy, I can’t wait for this confrontation tonight!
Jacob Senn: For me being here on Dynasty tonight, it’s very much in the similar notion that I’m forced to return to the brand that saw me as nothing more than a nuisance, a charlatan, and an arrogant rookie that placed too much stock in his own abilities: contractually-obligated. However, this is a moment for all of you. This is for you to take your pictures, to buy my shirts, to follow me on Twitter, to peddle for my autograph on the merchandise that you and your children want to shove in my face as I walk to my vehicle to depart from this DISGUSTING city of East Rutherford, New Jersey. This is your chance to be in the presence of a star that hasn’t faded into an ancient relic of what they were, this your chance to witness and display the true God of this business. Speaking of gods, however, in a few moments you’re about to be on your feet and “electrified” by the presence of Mr. DEDEDE as he does whatever it is that he does. Some of you will believe that one or the other will be more entertaining tonight and that’s your opinion, one that you’re entitled to, but what you’re not entitled to is your own facts. It’s nobody’s opinion that a couple of weeks ago, I went through the EAW New Breed Champion and a near 300-pound monster of a man, that’s a fact. I have been the most dominant Dynasty star for this past year against world title challengers, elitists that are rising through the ranks, and former legends in this business, FACT! I proved without a shadow of a doubt that I AND I ALONE carried the weight on this brand on my shoulders as World Heavyweight Champion and that I DESERVED to be in the EAW Hall of Fame for those actions, FACT! Year after year, Pain for Pride after Pain for Pride, I have shown the world that Jacob Senn is UNTOUCHABLE in singles competition in the high-pressure scenario as stage like that brings, FACT! Mr. DEDEDE is about to come out here and attempt to give you people hope, sell it to you like snake oil, and shoot is mouth off about how that will be reality. He will come out here and he will tell you his opinion and no matter what that will be, he’s entitled to it. He can make his insults, to his verbal jabs that he’s been legendary for, but this isn’t Pain for Pride X. At Pain for Pride X, despite the opinion of Mr. DEDEDE and all of you here tonight, he will NOT LEAVE THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION AND WITH A VICTORY TO HIS NAME! THAT IS A FACT BECAUSE I’M THE FACE OF THIS BRAND AND I’M THE ONE THAT RUNS THIS PL–
(“Feedback” by Kanye West interrupts his speech as the crowd jumps to their feet to know that the arrival of Mr. DEDEDE to the arena is here! Mr. DEDEDE walks out to the stage in his jeans and a black Onnit t-shirt, the EAW Interwire Championship on his shoulder, as he walks down the ramp to meet his opponent in the ring.)
Jake Mercer: OF COURSE! Mr. DEDEDE couldn’t handle the facts that Jacob Senn was laying out for everyone to hear and now, he has to come out here and steal the spotlight like he’s used to doing around here.
Stew-O: He’s has a right to do this, Jake! I mean, it’s the VERY least he can do after Jacob used that Equalizer on him, his own signature weapon! However, they were supposed to meet one last time before their match at Pain for Pride X, so let’s see how it goes!
(Mr. DEDEDE steps into the ring and stares a hole into the face of Jacob Senn, cold and bitter, before Jacob raises the microphone up to his face.)
Jacob Senn: Of course, you would interrupt me during the end of that. Now, you get to listen firsthand to what I’ve got t–
Mr. DEDEDE: No, everyone has listened enough to what you have to say, Senn. Why don’t you just stand there and let the true champion around here, the real man of this industry, actually tell things like they are. The thing about you is, Jacob, is that you crave respect. And don’t we all? Except, to your detriment, you’re a complete whore for it. Ever since you’ve debuted into EAW as a rookie, looking up at the climb that you had to make to be the success you WANT to be, you’ve desired the respect of that audience. And to your credit, you’ve won championships, you’ve beaten EAW Hall of Famers, you’ve gained enough credibility to where you can be inducted into the EAW Hall of Fame yourself, but none of it is that respect that you desire. You’ve stood out here plenty of times, complaining that people don’t give you that respect that you deserve, but look at what you constantly do to people like me. To threats that you find to stand in your way of being that person that you want to be, to the guy that you yourself stated shared a correlation to your rise of success here, you’ve insulted and disrespected me with multiple cases of slander INCLUDED the most unoriginal line of them all: that I’m an ancient relic. To you, that might be truth because like you said, you’re entitled to your own opinion. However, you’ve been here for nearly five years and you’ve held your own around here, but you’re looking at a man that has been here A DECADE HOLDING IT DOWN FROM PEOPLE LIKE YOU! I’ve fought against veterans that have done the same things I have, I have fought the hungry Elitists like you that find themselves at the crossroads to immortality at my expense, but all of them came empty-handed when the bright lights shown for Pain for Pride X! However, a guy like you can go around the world to disrespect me and the accomplishments that I have done in my career here, because you think you run this place? You think that you’re a special little snowflake and that everyone should be in awe of you when you enter a ring? SPOILER ALERT: NO ONE CARES! No one has cared about Jacob Senn and what Jacob Senn does except for JACOB SENN HIMSELF!
Jacob Senn: WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?
Mr. DEDEDE: I’D LOVE TO ASK YOU THE SAME QUESTION, BECAUSE I DON’T THINK YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW UNIMPORTANT AND FLEETING THAT YOU TRULY ARE. Motherfuckers like you come around all the time, motherfuckers like Lucian Black who felt like it’d be okay to openly discredit me, and Dark Demon who thought it’d be okay to openly disrespect me, because they won a couple World Titles, headlined a couple FPV Main Events and start smelling themselves. But those who were once on top have a tendency to disappear, and nothing about you tells me that you’ll be any different. You have this belief that you’re the face around here, the man that runs the show and the guy to beat around here, but that’s not true BECAUSE I AM! I’m the guy to beat in ALL of EAW because unlike you, my passion and loyalty stretches throughout this company, but that’s not really why you stay on Dynasty. Your tenure on Dynasty has nothing to do with passion, brand loyalty, a shared bond with the place, but it’s because if you were on any other brand in this locker room… you wouldn’t be half as successful as you are right now.
( A glowing red Jacob Senn stands there, snarling at his to-be opponent. )
Mr. DEDEDE: Struck a nerve, did I? That’s because it’s true. You would be standing in the back of the line, never being able to have a match like this in your career, because that’s what next weekend is. It’s the biggest match of your godforsaken life, and here’s a news flash: it’s not because of you, it’s because of me. But you still preach about how you’re the best wrestler in this entire roster. Regardless of how good you think you are, you’ve never been able to have a headline match at Pain for Pride, because you’re not on my level or EVEN the level below me! You’re not like those I’ve made magic with at Pain for Pride in the past. You’re not some prodigy that has been impressive to where I wanted to face you and felt eager to do so, like Xavier Williams. You’re not anywhere close to my level, you’re not a Y2Impact, you’re not a Jaywalker, you damned sure aren’t a CM Banks. Nobody thinks of you when discussing that caliber of greatness. You’re just a guy that’s bound to be disappointed because of his unoriginality and lack of talent that he shields behind his quote-unquote “nuanced” spiel in an attempt to disguise it from everyone else. I mean, you’re just like everyone else that has tried to go against me that despises me to their core, yet does everything in their power to be just like me at the end of the day. Isn’t that right, “God of Pain for Pride”? Allow me to leave you with this, Jacob. Trust me in knowing that at Pain for Pride, I will do everything to make sure that I get the last laugh. After all, he who laughs last … laughs best.
(Mr. DEDEDE turns around to begin to walk away…)
Jacob Senn: WAIT A MINUTE.
( DEDEDE stops and turns around. )
Jacob Senn: So… it’s all the same to you. I’ve always been just like the others, haven’t I? Even after sending you home for weeks with a shot to the head with your own Equalizer, making you feel that sensation of choking on your own blood, somehow I still fall in line with all the other fodder in your mind. I guess to you I’m not better than men like Xavier Williams. I suppose that’s what you see when you look at me, just another him. I watched that match more closely than all the others last year DEDEDE, and I saw after it all how you sent Xavier Williams down a deep depression that sent him packing and led to this “absolute classic in storytelling” between himself and Jamie O’Hara! But here you are, lining em’ up just to chop em’ down, that’s what you do when Pain for Pride comes around because you don’t want this place to succeed with future stars and Elitists!
Mr. DEDEDE: Oh for fucks sake.
Jacob Senn: You don’t want people to rise up to succeed the former stars, you would rather people flock from all around the world to see the nostalgia act of “The Gawd” and stroke your ego of being able to beat the best that can be offered up to you. Part of me actually thinks that you pride yourself on being a god to the point where you desire your yearly tribute at Pain for Pride to keep you around, to make you proud and happy of what you were able to do, blind to the destruction that you actually cause by sentencing a man to being nothing more than a victim to your ego.
However, I’m not just another guy that has been able to stand here and be in the position that I’m in, I’m a guy that HAS beaten you and did it before I even became a world champion here in EAW… or were you too busy imagining another victim to be buried under enormous ego to remember that? This man of unoriginality, this man that lacks any sort of talent to make him stand out in EAW, he’s pinned to your shoulders to the mat before and he intends to do it again at Pain for Pride X! Not only that, but I’ve proven to outlast and outperform every single one of those men that you’ve mentioned AND MORE! I don’t need to be on the level of Y2Impact and Jaywalker, I’VE PROVEN THAT I’M ABOVE THEM! AS A MATTER OF FACT, I DID WHAT YOU COULDN’T DO, I PROVED I WAS ABOVE JAYWALKER AT THE VERY SAME STAGE THAT YOU FAILED AGAINST HIM!
( A reaction comes from the crowd and DEDEDE can’t help but grin. )
Jacob Senn: And don’t get me started with your little pupil CM Banks. If that over-the-hill, overrated has-been ever had the balls to step into the ring with me, I would send him back to the retirement home faster than he sent you.
( The grin quickly leaves DEDEDE’s face, and a more serious look emerges. )
Jacob: Oh you love running your mouth talking about people that supposedly have been “turning the wheel”, what about you? What about the man that when he doesn’t like how things are working out for Mr. DEDEDE, decides to change his name to Methuselah and vice-versa? A constant cycle of the same story being regurgitated from the same voice over and over and over and over again and YOU want to call me the one that’s unoriginal and without talent. Cute is what I find that, DEDEDE, cute. You’ve been the same boring, lame-ass song and dance for the past decade where with me, I’ve actually evolved and adapted the surroundings that I’ve been placed in. I’ve changed the game and done what has needed to be done to thrive and succeed as you lounge back in your throne of immortality, waving your hand to where you can be cheered and revered as the best without any trouble from you, but that’s why I wanted this match. I want that spot, I want that throne, and I want to be known as the god around here because unlike you, I actually DESERVE that title! I don’t cut corners, and I don’t use my board authority to bestow myself privileges titles like you have for the last half of your career, I WORK MY ASS OFF FOR EVERYTHING! Face it you fraud! You’ve taken shortcuts your entire career, your entire life, and you’ve been allowed to reap the benefits of revisionist history because you’re a cowardly piece of CRAP!
Mr. DEDEDE: Let me tell you something, if it wasn’t for all that I’ve sacrificed for the life of this business, you wouldn’t have the platform to stand there nor would you have the privilege of being allowed to call me a “coward”, because you wouldn’t be competing in the marquee match at MetLife Stadium, you’d be in the goddamn Hammerstein Ballroom–
Jacob Senn: SAVE IT! STOP. STOP WITH THE SANCTIMONIOUS BULLSHIT, OKAY? WE GET IT, “MR. DEDEDE’S THE HERO”, “DEDEDE’S THE TORCH BEARER”, “MR. DEDEDE’S HELD IT DOWN”, WE DON’T NEED THE SPIEL ABOUT HOW HARD YOU’VE WORKED. EVERYBODY IN THIS FUCKING PLACE WORKS HARD FOR GOD’S SAKES! But I’ll tell you one thing everybody hasn’t done.. “Contract’s for anything”, run-in’s on title matches, “GOD CONTRACTS”. Only one egomaniacal son of a bitch has been allowed to do that in his entire time of EAW history, and it’s the one I’m facing at Pain for Pride. While you’ve been revered and worshipped by these sheep, I’VE BEEN THE ONE HOLDING DOWN DYNASTY AND GIVING IT EVERYTHING I’VE GOT INSIDE OF ME! WHAT I’VE DONE HERE IN MY CAREER, I HOLD DEAR TO ME MORE THAN MOST MEN CHERISH THEIR FAMILIES! THIS, EVERYTHING THAT YOU SEE ALL AROUND YOU, HAS BEEN MY LIFE’S WORK AND IF YOU THINK THAT YOU’RE GOING TO WATCH IT BURN AT PAIN FOR PRIDE X BECAUSE YOU NEED ANOTHER BIG WIN UNDER YOUR BELT, YOU’RE WRONG! IF YOU THINK THAT YOU’RE GOING TO DROWN MY NEARLY FIVE YEARS OF TRIBULATION AND SUFFERING TO BE ABLE TO GET TO THIS POINT BECAUSE YOU WANT SOMEONE TO GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP, YOU GOT THE WRONG PERSON FOR THE JOB! THIS IS ABOUT ME AND YOU, NOT THAT CHAMPIONSHIP! However all of that work that I’ve done for EAW to create the Hall of Fame career that I’ve received, it was just a FRACTION of the work I put in to make it this far. Half of my life on this planet, I’ve put into getting to this point of my career to where I could proudly declare myself to be the best in the world and attain the accolades I have. The thing that I will leave YOU with is that I will not allow you or any man in this world to put my work into ruin because they need something to make their live easier to go through, to make their work mean something, and for you… to give people a reason to care about what you do around here.
Mr. DEDEDE: Well Senn, I’ll admit some of that was a bitter pill to swallow. I hope saying all of that felt good. I hope you’re happy now that you got all of that off your chest. To be honest I’m actually somewhat impressed with what you’ve had to say, it almost leaves me speechless. But there’s one more thing I do have to say…
Stew-O: DEDEDE THROWS A RIGHT HAND INTO THE FACE OF JACOB SENN AS THE BRAWL KICKS UP BETWEEN THE TWO MEN! JACOB RESPONDS WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW AS BOTH MEN ARE GOING TO TOWN! THIS BRAWL BETWEEN THE TWO IS JUST HELLACIOUS WHEN DEDEDE STRIKES WITH A KICK TO THE STOMACH… EGO DEATH DRIVER!
Jake Mercer: THE SITOUT SUPLEX SLAM RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS AS YOU SEE JACOB SENN ARCH HIS BACK AND CRAWL AROUND THE RING IN PAIN! Mr. DEDEDE takes this opportunity to roll out of the ring and go under the ring while Senn sits in the turnbuckle corner to recover! He starts going through the objects under the ring as you can hear the clattering of metal and steel BEFORE HE PULLS OUT THE EQUALIZER! HE’S ABOUT TO GIVE JACOB SENN A BIT OF JUST DESSERTS HERE TONIGHT!
Stew-O: Mr. DEDEDE slides back into the ring with the Equalizer as he stands up to his feet, holding the guitar in both of his hands, as he calls for Jacob Senn to get up to his feet and turn around! He wants to make Jacob Senn go through what he had to go through these past couple of weeks and Jacob starts his way up to his feet, turning around as he stumbles a bit, as you see DEDEDE SWING AWAY WITH THE EQUALIZER!
Jake Mercer: THANK GOODNESS! JACOB SENN WAS ABLE TO NOTICE THE EQUALIZER AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING BEFORE ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN! DEDEDE WAS JUST INCHES AWAY FROM BEING ABLE TO BASH THAT GUITAR INTO HIS FACE! Jacob Senn just escaped a definite beating right there as we could have started the match early!
Stew-O: Yes, but now it’s over and Mr. DEDEDE and Jacob Senn are looking more ready than ever for their match at Pain for Pride X! I don’t know about you, but I’m VERY excited for this match to happen at Pain for Pride!
(Jacob Senn starts to walk back with his hand on the bottom of his back, cursing the name of his opponent, as Mr. DEDEDE grabs the EAW Interwire Championship and holds it up in one hand while the other holds up the Equalizer! DEDEDE strikes a confident grin on his face as the show cuts to commercial break.)
(The show returns from commercial break with the ring announcer placed as the focus while he stands in the center of the ring.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is set for one fall!!!
(“Ambitionz az a Ridah” hits to a huge pop from the New Jersey crowd; the old-school Tupac track bumps around the arena as TLA walks out, his gaze set on the Pain for Pride sign.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Miami, weighing in at 220 pounds… TLA!!!!!
Jake Mercer: With one week left from Pain for Pride, and after two devastating losses in the Grand Rampage and at Burning Desire where he came so close, yet fell so far, TLA looks to what may be his LAST chance at redemption; the Cash in the Vault Briefcase! TLA is a unique talent, despite everything he’s been through he always bounces back stronger, and he has the support of millions of fans around the world, who want nothing more than to see him win the big one. TLA has his chance at what is essentially a guaranteed World Championship next week, the question is – can he do it? Can he make up for his past failures? Or is he destined to never reach the pinnacle, despite standing one foot away on several occasions?
(“i” by Kendrick Lamar hits to a wave of cheers, and Target Smiles runs out, pumping himself up before making his way to the ring.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Parts Unknown, weighing in at 200 pounds… THE WANDERING WARRIOR!!!… TARGET SMILES!!!
Stew-O: The enigma that is Target Smiles earned the right to represent Dynasty in the EE Elimination Match at Pain for Pride back at Burning Desire, and since then he’s been on one of the best runs I’ve ever seen from an EAW rookie like him! Target picked up back to back wins over Xavier Williams and Ryan Marx two weeks ago, and the way things are shaping up… I wouldn’t hesitate to call him the favorite to win the Openweight Championship in the Extreme Enigma match! But before he can solidify any such assertions, he has TLA in his path tonight! Both men are looking to earn gold at Pain for Pride, the question is – who will secure that last bit of necessary momentum heading into the biggest show of the year?
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: Both men lock up right off the bat! A collar-and-elbow tie up is maintained by both men as they measure each other up… TLA overpowers Target and puts him in a headlock – OH! Target throws an elbow at TLA’s midsection, loosening his grip, before throwing another one! Target’s free now! He turns and fires a forearm shot at TLA, catching him against the side of the head! Target Smiles locks TLA into a headlock of his own, putting him on the mat with a hip toss, sliding up behind him on the ground, locking him back into the headlock! Target keeps TLA pressed down with one arm AND FIRES THE ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!! Target Smiles is trying to make a huge statement here – beating TLA will solidify his legitimacy after two huge wins over Ryan Marx and Xavier Williams!
Jake Mercer: This man has the potential to be the first ever Openweight Champion, and with the way he’s been performing lately… Target’s got TLA down on the mat, backing up to the ropes, waiting for TLA to get up! TLA’s back up on his feet, and Target runs at him… TARGET DUCKS BEFORE TLA EVEN THROWS THE CLOTHESLINE!!! HE HAD THAT PREDICTED!!! Target runs across the ring and bounces off the ropes, while TLA turns maybe just a second too late… Target runs and swings his leg up!!!… ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF TLA’S HEAD!!! TLA stumbles back and Target takes advantage with a chop to the chest… JUMPING UP WITH THE DROPKICK TO FINALLY DROP TLA TO THE MAT!!!
Stew-O: Target Smiles put everything at the forefront, coming hot right off the bell! He hasn’t slowed down a bit, and after catching TLA off-guard initially and wrestling him down to the mat, he’s been dominating going a mile a minute with no intention of slowing down! TLA rolls over, pushing himself off of the mat, while Target Smiles grabs him by the arm and picks him up to his feet… Target locks TLA by the arms.. AND SWINGS HIM BACK FOR THAT BUTTERFLY — TLA BREAKS FREE AND PLANTS HIS FEET, SPINNING AROUND WITH A BACK ELBOW CATCHING TARGET OFF-GUARD!!!… TLA THROWS A RIGHT HOOK AND CATCHES TARGET ON THE JAW!!! TLA FOLLOWS UP!!!… SWAG SHOT!!!! TLA COMPLETELY DISRESPECTS TARGET WITH THE PIMP SLAP TO THE MOUTH — LOOK AT TARGET!!! HE’S GOING RIGHT AFTER TLA!!!
Jake Mercer: TARGET THROWS A BACKHAND FIST AT TLA, FOLLOWING UP WITH A BIG KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION!!!… TLA IS REELING… AND TARGET SPINS HIM AROUND!!! NECKBREAKER!!! — TLA COUNTERS IT INTO THE JUMPING REVERSE BULLDOG!!!! TLA DROPS TARGET WITH THE YOU’RE DONE!!!… AND TARGET MAY VERY WELL BE!!! TLA HAS TARGET IN A VULNERABLE SPOT, PICKING HIM UP AND HOOKING HIM IN A HAMMERLOCK!!!!… TLA HAS TARGET LOCKED IN BY THE ARMS!!! HE’S GOING FOR THE TIGER DRIVER!!! TLA PICKS TARGET OFF THE MAT!!!… HE’S READY TO HIT THE PANTERA DRIVER ‘69!!!
Stew-O: TARGET HAS DIFFERENT IDEAS!!! TARGET FLIPS HIS LEGS UP, HOOKING THEM AROUND TLA’S HEAD!!!… TARGET IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO BREAK HIS ARMS FREE FROM TLA’S GRIP, BUT TLA IS REPOSITIONING TARGET SMILES BACK FOR THE PANTERA DRIVER — TARGET BREAKS HIS ARMS FREE!!!! TARGET FLIPS BACK, BRINGING TLA DOWN WITH HIM HEAD FIRST!!!! TARGET PLANTS TLA WITH THE FRANKENSTEINER!!! Target crawls over for the cover after turning the tide back in his favor, but TLA wisely rolls away! TLA reaches the ropes and pulls himself up, getting to his feet first, while Target Smiles stands up to meet him!
Jake Mercer: Target throws the first strike, swinging with a chop – TLA HAS THE ARM!!! TLA PULLS TARGET IN FOR THE CLOTHESLINE!!! TARGET DUCKS!!! Target jumps up for the snapmare… TLA CATCHES TARGET AROUND THE WAIST BUT TARGET THROWS AN ELBOW AND BREAKS FREE!!! TARGET GOES FOR THE SHORT ARM LARIAT BUT TLA DUCKS IT!!! TARGET TURNS… BUT TLA FLIPS BACK WITH THE PELE KICK!!! THE CARTEL KICK CONNECTS!!! TLA’S FOOT COLLIDES WITH THE TOP OF TARGET’S HEAD, AND THE MASKED WRESTLER GOES DOWN TO HIS KNEES!!! TLA HOOKS THE ARMS!!! TIGER SUPLEX!!!
Stew-O: TLA LAYS TARGET OUT!!! TLA has this crowd behind him, looking around the arena and back up to the Pain for Pride sign… TLA IS GOING TO THE TOP ROPE!!! TLA’S CLIMBING UP!!! HE’S GOING TO BE DOING THAT PLENTY OF THAT IN THE CITV MATCH… BUT COME ON!!! DON’T RISK THIS NOW!!! NOT WHEN YOU’RE JUST ONE WEEK AWAY FROM — TARGET SMILES IS UP ON HIS FEET!!! TARGET CLIMBS UP TO THE SECOND ROPE, SURPRISING EVEN TLA WITH THAT BURST OF ADRENALINE!!! TARGET CATCHES TLA OFF GUARD WITH A KNIFE EDGE CHOP TO THE CHEST!!!… TARGET LEAPS UP AND NAILS TLA UNDER THE JAW WITH AN UPPERCUT!!! TLA is stunned, and Target tries to climb up to the top rope with TLA… TLA LUNGES FORWARD AND NAILS HIM IN THE CHEST WITH THE HEADBUTT!!!!
Jake Mercer: Target reels back, nearly falling from the top rope while TLA repositions himself… BUT TARGET COMES BACK WITH THE ELBOW SMASH – TLA SWINGS RIGHT AND DODGES IT, NAILING TARGET ON THE MOUTH AGAIN WITH THE SWAG SHOT!!! TARGET IS STUNNED MOMENTARILY AND TLA TAKES ADVANTAGE… HEADBUTT TO THE FOREHEAD!!! TLA HOOKS TARGET BY THE ARMS AND LIFTS HIM UP!!!… THIS TIME TARGET IS OFFERING NO RESISTANCE… TLA HAS HIM IN PLACE FOR THE TIGER DRIVER!!!… AND JUMPS FROM THE TOP ROPE, BRINGING TARGET DOWN HARD ON HIS BACK!!! THE PANTERA DRIVER ‘69!!! TLA GRABS A HOLD OF TARGET’S LEGS AND PRESSES HIS SHOULDERS BACK DOWN TO THE MAT FOR THE COVER!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!….. TWO!!!! —
Stew-O: TARGET KICKS OUT RIGHT AT TWO!!! I thought that could’ve been it, and evidently so did TLA! TLA stands back up over Target Smiles, pulling him back up into a belly-to-back waistlock, looking to perhaps set him up for the Mexican Destroyer… TLA HOOKS THE ARMS!!! BUT TARGET WRESTLES ONE ARM FREE AND GRABS A HOLD OF TLA’S WRIST, SPINNING OUT OF HIS GRASP AND IN TURN PULLING TLA IN… AND TARGET GRABS HIM AROUND THE NECK AND PLANTS HIM WITH THE DDT!!!! TARGET CREATES SOME MUCH NEEDED SEPARATION FOLLOWING THAT SUPER-PANTERA DRIVER FROM THE TOP ROPE, WHICH I’M STILL HONESTLY SHOCKED HE KICKED OUT OF, ALL DUE RESPECT TO TARGET SMILES!
Jake Mercer: Target sits back up, watching TLA who begins to do the same! Target grabs TLA’s shoulder and pushes himself off of it – TLA HOOKS TARGET BY THE LEG!!! HE WAS WAITING FOR TARGET TO EXPOSE HIMSELF AND HE FOUND HIS OPENING!!! TLA TRIES TO PICK TARGET UP FOR THE CANADIAN DESTROYER!!!!…. TARGET PUSHES HIMSELF OFF!!! SUPERKICK!!! NO!!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!….. TWO!!!!…… THREE!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Ambitionz az a Ridah” hits to a huge pop from the crowd while TLA stands up, looking up at the Pain for Pride sign above the ring.)
Ring Announcer: HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY WAY OF PINFALL… TLA!!!!
Stew-O: Both of these men have been tearing through their r respective divisions like it’s nothing, and when you get two elite talents like this to fight for nothing but momentum and dominance with one week left before Pain for Pride, you get rewarded with a hell of a match! No shame in losing Target! You have everything needed to be a major player on this show! And as for TLA… the CITV is how opportunity to win the one that’s always evaded him.
(The camera pans to TLA celebrating in the ring as the show cuts to commercial break.)
(FINAL COMMERCIAL BREAK)
(The show returns from commercial break with the ring announcer placed as the focus while he stands in the center of the ring.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall… AND IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!!!
(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar blasts on the speakers when a confident, but cold Scott Oasis walks on in his ring gear, getting pumped about this match. He walks forward and roars in exhilaration as he walks down the ramp towards the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from Baltimore, Maryland… weighing in at 260 pounds… “The Ice Man” SCCOOOTTTTTTTTT OAASSSIIIISSSSS!!!
Jake Mercer: Right before his chance to the Cash in the Vault briefcase that could make this a reality in the near future, Scott Oasis is about to take on the EAW World Heavyweight Champion in tonight’s main event! To defeat this man in only a few days before Pain for Pride X is upon us, we could definitely see a man that has all the momentum on his side going into the match WHICH I’M SURE WILL HAPPEN! SCOTT OASIS WON’T DISAPPOINT AND I ASSURE, TONIGHT WILL BE A WORLD OF HURT FOR THE CHAMPION!
(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin plays throughout The Izod Center with Jamie O’Hara stepping out of the ring onto the stage, the EAW World Heavyweight Championship strapped around his waist, as he lifts his hands up to taunt while he walks down the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, he is from Melbourne, Australia… he weighs in at 241 pounds… he is the EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… “The Saint of Valiance” JAAMMMIIIIEEEEE O’HHAAARRRRAAAAA!!!
Stew-O: With one of the biggest matches of his career on the horizon, Jamie O’Hara will walk into this match with the only intention being to prove why he’s the EAW World Heavyweight Champion and defeat Scott Oasis! Defeating a monster with the size that Scott has, it will be able to prepare him for the size and strength advantage that shall come into play at Pain for Pride X with Xavier Williams!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: Our main event, the last stop for both these men before their respective big matches at Pain For Pride X. Oasis and O’Hara circle the ring but waste little time before stepping into the middle locking up in a collar and elbow tie up. But Scott Oasis with the weight advantage manages to drive the World Heavyweight Champion into the corner near immediately, forcing the official to intervene and break it up!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Stew-O: And Oasis breaks the collar and elbow tie up, backing away from the corner.
Jake Mercer: No doubt both men are looking to make a notable impact before next week and want to ensure a dominate performance sends a message to their opponent or opponents. Oasis and O’Hara again step to meet for another tie up but O’Hara cuts him off with a stiff kick to the knee. Oasis buckles momentarily and O’Hara immediately follows it up with a knife edge chop lighting up the chest of his opponent! Jamie O’Hara backs Oasis onto the ropes, looking to whip him across to the opposite side but Oasis with the pivot and drags O’Hara in connecting with a sick forearm strike nearly sending O’Hara tumbling outside the ring! Incredible power behind that strike and O’Hara took the full force of it, almost sending the champion loopy there. But O’Hara rises back off the canvas and swings wildly with a right hook but Oasis cuts him off with a knee to the mid section; O’Hara stumbles back onto the ropes, Oasis steps in with the wrist clutched and irish whips O’Hara across to the other side of the ring. No counter from the champion but Oasis charges right after him! But great situational awareness from Jamie O’Hara as he slides out of the ring under the bottom rope; Oasis with enough wherewithal to pull up before crashing into the ropes. Jamie drives both fists onto the ring apron, struggling to obtain any sense of a foothold in this contest as all the momentum exists in the palm of Scott Oasis.
Stew-O: You can see the confidence radiating from Scott Oasis as he stands dead center of the ring with the champion on the outside, taking his time to get his head straight before stepping back into the ring. The official demanding O’Hara re-enter the ring and slowly O’Hara complies stepping through the ropes. AND O’HARA CHARGES RIGHT HEAD TOWARDS OASIS SWINGING FOR THE LARIAT BUT OASIS INSTEAD DROPS TO A KNEE, WRAPS THE ARMS AROUND THE WAIST AND HOISTS O’HARA UP INTO THE AIR TO CONNECT WITH THE GERMAN SUPLEX! O’Hara rolls away clutching the back of his neck but fights back to his feet; Oasis quick back to his too and O’Hara turns into a spear! Oasis nearly cutting Jamie O’Hara in half and Oasis desperately makes the cover, he might have O’Hara done here already!
Ref: OOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWOO–
Jake Mercer: And O’Hara powers out at the count of two. O’Hara lashes back out at the canvas out of frustration as he tries to roll away from the pin but Scott Oasis is quick to keep him grounded, immediately sliding back to the canvas into a side headlock! O’Hara desperately trying to reach the bottom rope but Oasis rolls away and cinches the hold in tighter. All control thus far in the contest squarely in the corner of Scott Oasis. A victory tonight would be an incredible morale boost heading into Cash In The Vault and no doubt give Oasis an edge over the rest of the competition. For O’Hara, defeat would surely create a negative mindset that could be detrimental to his title defense against Xavier Williams. O’Hara again tries to surge back towards the rope but Oasis swiftly rolls back to the center of the ring; O’Hara surges once again but Oasis cinches the hold in tighter, dragging O’Hara back to the canvas. Wearing down his opponent bit by bit, starving Jamie O’Hara of any offense, still with so little thus far in the match.
Stew-O: O’Hara with another attempt to break the side headlock, scratching and clawing. Oasis shifting his weight, trying to mount the pressure and keep his opponent grounded. But O’Hara is refusing to allow Oasis to keep him grounded, shooting back to his feet and lifting Oasis up before dropping him to the canvas with back body drop! Breaking the hold and perhaps creating a window of opportunity! Both men race back to their feet– KNEE STRIKE! O’Hara connects with the knee, Oasis stumbles back on the ropes– AND O’HARA FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A LARIAT SENDING SCOTT OASIS TUMBLING OVER THE TOP ROPE! A MOMENT OF REPRIEVE FOR O’HARA BUT INSTEAD HE RISES BACK TO HIS FEET; HE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND COMES FLYING BACK. OASIS STAGGERS BACK TO HIS FEET!!! TOPE SUICIDA!!!! IT CONNECTS AND BOTH MEN GO CRASHING INTO THE STAGE RAMP!
Jake Mercer: The momentum has certainly has swung in the opposite direction. And O’Hara isn’t going to allow a second for Oasis to regain his composure, dragging him to his feet and dragging him back into the ring. O’Hara pulls himself up on the ring apron but Oasis desperately shoots to his feet and delivers a swift kick to the chest! O’Hara collapses back into the ring and Oasis makes another cover.
Ref: OOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWOOO!!!
Jake Mercer: NO! O’Hara gets a foot on the bottom rope. The Ice Man quick back to his feet, shaking off the effects of the suicide dive from just moments ago. He drags O’Hara back to his feet and pulls him for the snap suplex! But O’Hara blocks it with the leg! Oasis with the body shot to the ribs and attempts to hoist him up again! Yet O’Hara blocks it again. Oasis for a third time tries and this time he’s successful– BUT O’HARA WITH THE CORE STRENGTH TO LAND ON HIS FEET AND HOLD SCOTT OASIS UP! O’HARA TWISTS AND PULLS OASIS IN FOR THE SMALL PACKAGE ROLL UP!
Ref: OOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWOOO!!! TTTHHHRRREE–
Stew-O: OASIS POWERS OUT OF THE PIN! OASIS QUICKLY RACES BACK TO HIS FEET– BICYCLE KNEE! O’HARA FLOORS SCOTT WITH YET ANOTHER KNEE, THE PRELUDE TO THE FINALE; O’HARA QUICKLY BACKS HIMSELF INTO THE CORNER. IN EXCELSIS!!! NO! OASIS MANAGES TO ESCAPE UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE TO CATCH A BREATHER! A momentary reprieve but Jamie O’Hara refuses him to give him any longer, sliding out of the ring and the chase is on! Oasis immediately scoots around the left hand side of the ring, O’Hara follows. Oasis slides into the ring and immediately charges towards the ropes; O’Hara slides into the ring and tries to climb back to his feet but Oasis is already there to connect with the basement dropkick! Both boots connecting fair square to the head of Jamie O’Hara and he tumbles back to the outside of the ring. Oasis stumbles back to his feet and demands that the referee begin the ten count. The official checks on O’Hara who begins to stir on the outside before starting his count.
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Jake Mercer: O’Hara clutches the ring skirt and pulls himself to his feet but can’t find the balance!
Ref: FIVE! SIX! SEVEN!
Jake Mercer: AND O’HARA BREAKS THE COUNT, SCOTT OASIS IS THERE TO DRAG HIM TO HIS FEET, O’HARA TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT WITH BODY SHOTS TO THE EXPOSED RIBS OF SCOTT OASIS. OASIS WINCHING WITH EACH UNPROTECTED PUNCH BUT REFUSES TO GIVE UP THE CLINCH– JAWBREAKER! O’HARA DROPS TO HIS KNEES AND CONNECTS WITH THE JAWBREAKER! OASIS STUMBLES AWAY, O’HARA RACES BACK TO HIS FEET BUT SCOTT OASIS NEARLY DECAPITATES HIM WITH A WICKED LARIAT!
Stew-O: NO! O’HARA DUCKS AND FLOATS AROUND, LOCKING OASIS IN THE FULL NELSON! BUT O’HARA DOESN’T HAVE THE STRENGTH TO CONNECT WITH THE DRAGON SUPLEX! OASIS BREAKS THE NELSON QUICKLY. O’Hara responds with a forearm shot that connects to the jaw but Oasis responds with a simple left hook that may have again sent O’Hara loop! O’Hara stumbles back against the ropes but tries to fire back only to be met in the center of the ring, hoisted into the air and Oasis connects with the Samoan Drop! Immediately racing into the cover!
Ref: OOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWOOO!!!
Jake Mercer: NO SMALL PACKAGE! SMALL PACKAGE AGAIN FROM JAMIE O’HARA!!
Ref: OOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWOOO!!! TTTHHHRRREE–
Jake Mercer: NO! SCOTT OASIS POWERS OUT! O’Hara getting rather desperate, but both men again shoot back to their feet. Oasis charges– BUT O’HARA WITH THE ROLL THROUGH, CLUTCHING THE LEG AND LOCKING IN THE KNEELOCK WITH THE LEG SCISSORS! SOUTHERN CRUCIFIXION LOCKED IN AND O’HARA IS CINCHING IT IN MORE AND MORE! The massive tree trunk-like legs of Scott Oasis a near impossible task to control as Oasis makes the crawl towards the bottom rope to break the hold. O’Hara desperately trying to apply as much pressure on the knee; Oasis winching and pausing momentarily per lunge for the ropes. And Oasis makes it to the bottom rope! O’Hara quickly breaks the hold realising the opportunity he has! Oasis struggling to get back to his feet, he’s on a single knee!! O’HARA BACKS INTO THE CORNER, THE RIGHT LEG SHAKING NEAR UNCONTROLLABLY, YOU KNOW WHAT’S COMING STEW!!
Stew-O: WE ALL DO!
Jake Mercer: IN EXCELSIS!!!!
Stew-O: OASIS! OASIS SLIPS TO THE SIDE AND FLOATS BEHIND, AVOIDING THE DEADLY KNEE STRIKE AND HOISTS O’HARA UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS IN THE TORTURE RACK, LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH SEEK AND DESTROY! THE PSYCHO DRIVER! BUT O’HARA FIRES AWAY WITH REPEATED BACK ELBOWS CONNECTING SQUARE ON THE JAW. OASIS BEGINS TO BUCKLE BUT O’HARA SHOWS NO SIGNS OF SLOWING DOWN; SHOT AFTER SHOT, THE POINT OF THE ELBOW CONNECTING ON THE JOINT OF THE JAW! O’HARA SLIPS OFF– BICYCLE KNEE! THE KNEE BACK TO THE JAW! AN ALMIGHTY FLURRY OF OFFENSE MAY HAVE SENT OASIS LOOPY! BUT THE ICE MAN SHOOTS BACK TO HIS FEET– A SECOND BICYCLE KNEE AGAIN FLUSH ON THE JAW THAT BRINGS SCOTT OASIS TO HIS KNEES! O’HARA LOOKING TO END THIS, HE BACKS HIMSELF INTO THE CORNER AND SIGNALS FOR THE END–
(“Last Kings” by Tupac ft. Eminem hits. O’Hara pauses in the ring and his attention is immediately dragged to the stage)
STEW-O: GET READY, PAIN FOR PRIDE IS COMING ONE WEEK EARLIER!!!
(O’Hara slides out under the bottom rope and digs under the ring skirt. After a moment, he pulls a sledgehammer out and makes his way towards the base of the ramp. The official makes his way over to the ropes to court O’Hara back into the ring but O’Hara pays no attention. The official begins his count)
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Stew-O: THE OFFICIAL BEGINS THE TEN COUNT BUT JAMIE O’HARA ISN’T CONCERNED. THE MUSIC OF XAVIER WILLIAMS STILL PLAYING LOUD OVER THE ARENA, O’HARA SWINGING THAT SLEDGEHAMMER AROUND WILDLY, SCREAMING AT XAVIER WILLIAMS TO MAKE HIS WAY TO THE RING.
Ref: FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN!
Jake Mercer: AND THERE HE IS! XAVIER STANDING AT THE TOP OF THE STAGE, ARMS FOLDED AND A GRIN ON HIS FACE. O’HARA STILL SCREAMING FOR HIM TO MEET HIM AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RING; DRIVING THE METAL END OF THE SLEDGEHAMMER INTO THE STEEL STEPS, PUTTING ONE ALMIGHTY DENT IN IT. SCOTT OASIS IS PULLING HIMSELF UP BY THE ROPES.
Ref: EIGHT! NINE!
(O’Hara turns back to the ring and shakes his head before turning back to Xavier, dragging the sledgehammer across the outside forming a line and begging for Xavier to meet him)
Ref: TEN! RING THE BELL!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar hits but O’Hara swiftly makes his way around the ring and rips a microphone out of the hands of the ring announcer. He takes the World Heavyweight Championship from the time keeper and slides back into the ring. “DNA” abruptly ends as Scott Oasis makes his way around to the ramp, passing Xavier Williams with a smile on his face. Xavier pauses for a moment as the grin on his face vanishes and his face goes stoic. O’Hara shakes his head, raising the microphone up)
Jamie O’Hara: No, no, no, no, no, Xavier we’re not waiting until Pain For Pride, these people don’t want to wait until Pain For Pride. Don’t even think about walking back through that curtain, I don’t want to wait any longer; let’s put this away TONIGHT!
(O’Hara drops the title from his shoulder and lays it in the center of the ring, taunting Xavier to step into the ring. Jamie holds that Sledgehammer in his hands as Xavier gets down on his knee and digs his hand into the his right boot, pulling out… the railroad spike.)
Stew-O: OH IT’S ON. IT’S ABSOLUTELY ON. XAVIER WILLIAMS HOLDS AN ANSWER TO THAT SLEDGEHAMMER WITH THAT RAILROAD SPIKE – THE FIRE OF PURE HATRED IN THE EYES OF BOTH MEN!
(Xavier slides into the ring and both he and Jamie stand across from each other, face to face. Xavier drops his down at the title before both men drive their skulls against one another. The crowd continues to grow in excitement but a chorus of boos echo…)
Sebastian Monroe: NO, NO THIS IS NOT HAPPENING TONIGHT! IF THE TWO OF YOU CANNOT WAIT ONE MORE WEEK, THEN FIND SOME OTHER WAY TO UNLOAD BUT YOU WILL NOT DO IT IN MY RING. DO NOT MARE THIS FINAL SHOW.
(Sebastian Monroe stands at the top of the ramp as he signals for security to make their way to the ring. A dozen men file down the ramp and begin to surround the ring but neither Monroe or the security members can break the stare between Xavier and Jamie. The security climb onto the apron)
Stew-O: XAVIER AND O’HARA BREAK THEIR GAZE AND BOTH MEN TARGET THE SECURITY! BOTH MEN CHARGING TOWARDS OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE RING AND SWINGING LEFTS AND RIGHTS, KNOCKING SECURITY PERSONNEL OFF THE RING APRON AND SENDING THEM CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE! PUTTING THEIR DIFFERENCES ASIDE FOR JUST A MOMENT, CLEARING THE RING OF SECURITY– AND O’HARA BLINDSIDES XAVIER WITH A KNEE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! IT DIDN’T LAST LONG, NOT LONG AT ALL. XAVIER QUICKLY SCRAMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET AND BOTH MEN COME TO BLOWS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! HAYMAKERS LEFT AND RIGHT BEING THROWN; KNEES, FOREARMS, KICKS AND STOMPS, THE FULL ARSENAL BEING UNLEASHED, BOTH MEN REFUSING TO WAIVER!!
Jake Mercer: AND MONROE IS SCREAMING AT HIS SECURITY TO GET BACK INTO THE RING. THEY COMPLIED AND THEY TACKLE BOTH XAVIER AND O’HARA INTO RESPECTIVE CORNERS OF THE RING. O’HARA WITH CLUBBING BLOWS TO THE BACK OF SECURITY, MANAGING TO DRAG ONE AWAY AND HE BREAKS FRE– SUPERKICK FROM XAVIER! XAVIER BREAKING FREE AND CONNECTING WITH A VICIOUS SUPERKICK AND SECURITY SWARM TO DRIVE HIM BACK UP AGAINST THE ROPES. XAVIER TRYING TO BREAK FREE, O’HARA SHOOTS BACK TO HIS FEET BUT HE’S IMMEDIATELY SWARMED UPON. BOTH MEN STRUGGLING TO BREAK FREE. A FLURRY OF RIGHT AND LEFTS, SECURITY TUMBLING OUT OF THE RING ONE BY ONE, O’HARA DRAGS ONE BY THE HAIR AND TOSSES HIM OVER THE ROPE TOWARDS MONROE; O’HARA SCREAMING TO SEND MORE–
(Xavier tosses the final security member out as Jamie turns…)
Stew-O: OH MY GOD!! XAVIER WILLIAMS POPS THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION HIGH INTO THE AIR AND DRIVES HIM DOWN WITH THAT END OF THE WORLD!! JAMIE’S SPINE JARRING IN PAIN, BUT XAVIER ISN’T FINISHED!! XAVIER LIFTING JAMIE BACK TO HIS FEET AND PULLS HIM IN!! HE’S LOOKING FOR ANOTHER!! A SECOND END OF THE WORLD!! JAMIE IS BARELY MOVING, BUT XAVIER DRAGS HIM BACK UP AND PULLS HIM IN!! JAMIE O’HARA MAY NOT MAKE IT TO PAIN FOR PRIDE!! XAVIER POWERS JAMIE UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS – AND DRIVES HIM BACK DOWN FOR A THIRD POWERBOMB!!
(Xavier stands over Jamie as a stoic look still covers his face. He slowly makes his way over to the ropes and demands a chair, which the timekeeper quickly hands to him. Xavier holds the chair in one hand and bends down, picking up the World Heavyweight Championship with the other. Xavier unfolds the chair and places it next to Jamie before picking up the microphone on the ground and taking a seat.)
Xavier: You wanted a war, Jamie.
(Xavier looks at the World Heavyweight Championship in his hand before leaning forward and holding it over Jamie.)
Xavier: This means more to you than anything else in the world. This is the one thing that you’ve fought so hard to obtain… and this is what so many people said that you deserved.
(Xavier drops the World Heavyweight Championship across the chest of Jamie O’Hara.)
Xavier: When I look at you, Jamie – I see myself. I see you walking down the exact same road that drove me to absolute madness and I can’t wait to see the finished product. You’re riding on cloud nine, but that fall is coming and it’s coming fast. It’s been nine long months since that knife went in my back, Jamie and at Pain for Pride I am going to take away the one thing that you care for more than life itself. I’m going take every stumble over the last six months absolutely worth it, and you’ll understand that the war that you wanted was one that you never should have waged.
(Xavier gets out of the chair and places his boot across the throat of the World Heavyweight Champion.)
Xavier: Because this isn’t your story, Jamie. It’s mine.
(Xavier drops the microphone as “Last Kings” picks back up. He rolls under the bottom rope and begins to make his way past all the still down security before staring down Monroe who still stands on the stage. Xavier looks back over his shoulder at Jamie who recovers in the ring as the camera fades to black…)
