“All It Takes Is A Miracle”
(EAW Intro Plays… )
(“Human” by Rag’n’Bone Man plays in the background as the camera shows the interior of The Ice Palace filled to capacity with the fans anticipating the show that is to come before the camera turns over towards the commentary team of Stew-O and Jake Mercer!)
Stew-O: With a little over a week remaining on the path of Territorial Invasion, we welcome you to another episode of Dynasty emanating LIVE from The Ice Palace in Saint Petersburg, Russia! Tonight will mark a historic moment for Dynasty as this arena will be the setting where the final members of Team Monroe and Team Starr will be decided between the two INSIDE OF THE RING! Security has been prepped for when the time comes and tonight, we shall see the two co-General Manager meet in the ring for the final time!
Jake Mercer: The last time that this audience and the people across the world will see StarrStan in the General Manager position and we can finally have the vision that Sebastian Monroe has for Dynasty returned to prominence! However, let us not forget about the challenge made by Eclipse Diemos last week to challenge for the EAW Answers World Championship against The Pizza Boy! We’ve been told that tonight, he’s to respond to the challenge and hopefully, we will have an astounding main event on our hands for Territorial Invasion!
Stew-O: People like you can only hope, Jake, but one more thing that will be addressed will be the time when we will see Scott Diamond defend his EAW Hardcore Championship against The Hardcore Invitational winner Darkane! This match is due to happen at some time and with a meeting with our co-General Manager, I’m assured that this will be quite in the near future!
Jake Mercer: Well, I’m ready for a fight to go down tonight, Stew! Are you? So instead of just rambling about the night, why don’t we GET THIS STA–
(“Crippled By Pizza” by Horse The Band interrupts the commentary team with The Pizza Boy walking out to the ring with a bit of a scowl on his face, holding the EAW Answers World Championship on his shoulder, as he makes his way down to the ramp with the full support of the fans behind him when he makes his appearance.)
Stew-O: WELL, WE MIGHT NOT HAVE A FIGHT STARTING RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION HAS JUST MADE HIS APPEARANCE RIGHT NOW! I guess the champion doesn’t intend to wait long to respond to the challenge that was presented to him by Eclipse Diemos, a painful one considering the state he was left in last week, but you can tell the message was made clear to the champion!
Jake Mercer: Did he have to interrupt me though, Stew? I was about to call for a match to get started, but instead I have to listen to his false champion stand here and give me a message that I already know what he’s about to say? You know what? Wake me up when he’s done… I need a moment to rest my eyes.
(The Pizza Boy enters into the ring and walks over towards the ring announcer, grabbing the microphone from him before he marches to the center of the ring, cradling the championship on his shoulder as he looks around to the adoring fans in attendance.)
The Pizza Boy: Thank you everyone for my warm welcome to tonight’s show, but tonight isn’t about warm welcomes. No, this is about this obsession of destruction that Eclipse Diemos seems to have that has now targeted myself and this EAW Answers World Championship. I can understand where he feels that this championship would be the next logical step for him because look at the men that he has defeated and “revealed to be false idols” in the last couple of months. You have HRDO that has been known to be one of the members that have created the foundation that we all stand upon and take for granted, a true Hall of Famer for the accomplished career that he has had, and many accolades attached to his name. Not only did this… monster defeat him at Pain for Pride X, but took him out of commission to where a new Chairman of EAW had to be enlisted. Let us not forget about the second person that he’s recently given the experience of desolation at his hand, Jacob Senn. Another Hall of Famer, former world champion, and a crux to the modern era of Dynasty and this man was able to not only force him to taste the bitter pill of defeat, but he broke him through an announce table to put another stamp towards his dominance on this roster. This has given him a newfound confidence, an ability to be able to tell the world that it shall be his and this championship will give him the means to make sure that the entire Dynasty roster shall bask in his sinister nature, but I have to say that Eclipse… this title WILL NOT BE YOURS!
I have went through 29 other hungry challengers to be able to contend for this championship, I had to usurp a king to be able to remove this crown from his brow, and I had to shatter an man as cold as ice to be able to keep this prize on my shoulder! I’ve endured trials and tribulations that would put whatever method of destruction that you have in store for me to shame and would be an embarrassment to even consider to be a threat towards my reign as champion. This is not me taking you lightly, this is not me discrediting what you’ve done to the two men I mentioned before, but this is a simple fact that you’re outweighed against men that I’ve already defeated on my climb to being known as the best to hold this championship. If you think that a simple attack will deter me or strike fear in my heart, don’t make me laugh, because the answer to this little challenge of yours is YES! I WILL DEFEND THIS CHAMPIONSHIP AGAINST YOU AND SHOW THAT I’M NOT A HOLLOW SHELL KNOWN AS A FALSE ICON! I’M THE PIZZA BOY AND NO ONE DELIVERS LIKE I DO!
(Static erupts on the screen before a warped manic laughter is heard as a lone light is shown on titantron to reveal Eclipse Diemos with a wicked smile on his face and a quiet laughter escaping him.)
Eclipse Diemos: What a noble thing for you to do, Pizza Boy. A smart man would have denied a monster like me to be able to step foot into a ring with them, let alone for the EAW Answers World Championship, but not you. No, no, no, you’re a man with pride and honor that must defend it when any villain attempts to besmirch it, allowing you to play right into my hand. I know heroes like you, Pizza Boy, and you’re vain to a tee. Heroes are concerned about the image they present to the audience, the fickle sheep that will sway their opinion like the pendulum towards them, and lead their lives towards an honorbound code to center their lives around. They cherish the ovation that the audience gives them, the respect and admiration that their peers deliver unto them, even if it comes to the expense of their eventual success. The story of your career, right? Challenging men that would do whatever it took to be known as the champion and keeping to the morality of the chivalrous hero that you are to these people has a climb of the ladder that you undertook, a challenge that most mortals would abandon for one glimmer of gold to be put on their shoulder. I would have to agree that it is admirable, but does that mean that I find any reason to not desire to take that prize from your shoulder to claim for the shadows of oblivion? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
What you need to realize is that Territorial Invasion marks the ascension of my desired destruction on this roster as its champion! A champion for the shadows that have been vacant in this industry for eons and you want to cast a light upon them of hope and heart that a hero has, but you shall find the darkness to be overwhelming to the point where the light is smothered out! Last year, I was placed in this same scenario against another hero that was chosen by the people and he got lucky. He was revealed to be a false idol towards them on a later date, but I knew that he was just that and you will share the same fate he did. A flickering flame ousted by the darkness, a false idol to have his image shattered beyond repair, and a hero’s death created at the hand of a villain by the name of Eclipse Diemos! You believe that kings and men of ice compare to the demons and indestructible ones that I’ve decimated by my hand, that they stand a chance against a force of darkness such as I, leaving you to be sorely mistaken to where it will cost you the championship you hold so dear. Pizza Boy, you’ve been known to deliver against those that have challenged you for quite some time now, but your time has expired and I’m due a championship prize to my name. For I return the somebody to the pit of obscurity that he came from, The Pizza Boy once again being known as a nobody while I return as the throne as the EAW Answers World Champion!
(The Pizza Boy looks down at his EAW Answers World Championship, holding his chin with thoughts swirling around his mind, before he looks back up towards Eclipse Diemos on the titantron.)
The Pizza Boy: You might be right, Eclipse. Territorial Invasion could be the night where you make your grand return as a world champion, redeeming the wrongs that have been done to you, and I might not be able to defeat you when all is said and done. You can bring your reign of terror onto Dynasty, continue to destroy every challenge that walks in front of your path, and reveal me to be this false idol of heroism that you find me to be. However, I could do what I did to Lannister to win this championship and shock the world! I could do what I did to Scott Oasis and shut his mouth about being Dynasty’s real champion when I retained against him against all the odds! Everyone believed that it would have been their moment to be the champion at my expense AND THEY ALL FAILED! You’ve been able to continue this rise to build your confidence but this somebody will give you the most humiliating downfall that you’ve ever experienced! Territorial Invasion will be where history repeats itself and Eclipse once again fails to be world champion!
(The Pizza Boy drops the microphone and raises the EAW Answers World Championship high in the air while Eclipse Diemos simply cackles is laughter as the show cuts to commercial break.)
(The show returns from commercial break with the crowd excited for what’s to come next with the ring announcer standing in the middle of the ring with the camera focused on him.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!
(“Miseria Cantare” by AFI plays to huge heat from the fans as Khamsin makes his way out onto the stage with a smug look on his face. He wastes no time as he begins to descend down the ramp.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Alexandria, Egypt! Weighing in at 210 pounds … HE IS THE DESERT STORM, KKKHHAAAAAAMMMSSSIINN!!!!!!
Stew-O: And after a week off last week, Khamsin is BACK and has made it well known that he is looking to make a statement in this match tonight against Ryan Savage! Khamsin is a very talented individual, and wants to take down a well known competitor here in EAW here tonight!
Jake Mercer: It will be no easy task, but I’m sure Khamsin is ready for the task at hand – a challenging one at that!
(“Free Smoke” by Drake plays to boos as Ryan Savage confidently makes his way out from behind the curtains to stand dead center on the stage. He takes a look around at the sea of fans in attendance, before making his way down the ramp.)
Ring Announcer: Next, from San Diego, California! Weighing in at 260 pounds … RRRYYAAAANNN SSSSAAAVVAAAGGEEEE!!!!
Stew-O: Ryan Savage has been sitting in limbo as of late. He’s been trying to figure out where to go from his position, and trying to find a way to ascend up the Dynasty roster!
Jake Mercer: Taking it one win at a time will give him that momentum he so desperately needs to catapult up the rankings here. I believe he might be one of the most underrated talents in EAW today. He just needs to put in a little more effort and he will get to whatever he desires most!
(As Ryan Savage’s theme fades out, the two stand in their respective corners, stretching and waiting for the bell to ring. The ring announcer hasn’t left the ring yet, as the two begin to slowly grow impatient. Ryan and Khamsin both questionably look at the ring announcer.)
Ring Announcer: …AND THEIR OPPONENT!!
Jake & Stew-O: What?!
(The fans begin to rise to their feet and look towards the entrance stage. “Wokeuplikethis” by Playboi Carti plays, as the fans grow more and more eager awaiting the competitor about to join the fray. Suddenly, in big, bold yellow letters, the name “HURRICANE HAWK” appears on the titantron to a HUGE cheer from the audience as Hurricane Hawk makes his way slowly out from behind the curtain. He tilts his head slowly towards the ring, before stepping forward onto the stage.)
Stew-O: OH MY GOD, JAKE!!! THERE’S NO WAY!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: IT’S HURRICANE HAWK!!! WHAT THE HELL, HE’S BACK?!?!?!
Ring Announcer: FROM JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA!!! WEIGHING IN AT 225 POUNDS … HE IS THE SHOW SLAYER, HHHURRRRIIICCCAAANNNEEE HAAAAAAAAAAAWWKKK!!!!
Stew-O: I DON’T BELIEVE THIS!! HURRICANE HAWK IS BACK, AND IS COMPETING IN THIS MATCH TONIGHT!
Jake Mercer: THIS… THIS IS WHY I LOVE DYNASTY!! I MIGHT BE AN ASSHOLE AT TIMES, BUT I LOVE DYNASTY BECAUSE YOU JUST NEVER KNOW WHO MIGHT SHOW UP!! THE EAW HALL OF FAMER HIMSELF, HURRICANE HAWK IS BACK AND IS IN ACTION NOT JUST TONIGHT, BUT RIGHT NOW!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: And we are underway for a Triple Threat here tonight, LIVE on Dynasty! Ryan Savage, Khamsin, Hurricane Hawk! Incredible scenes, incredible atmosphere! Hurricane Hawk confidently walks into the center of the ring, as Khamsin and Savage stare him down with FRUSTRATION on their faces! The two now look at one another, BEFORE BOTH TAKING SHOTS AT HAWK. HAWK IS BEING BEATEN INTO THE ROPES BY BOTH MEN, WHO SEEMED TO HAVE FORMED AN ALLIANCE FOR NOW, BUT THAT WILL ALL CHANGE SOON I BET! The two irish whip Hawk to the ropes, and Hawk comes rebounding back! The two attempt a double clothesline, but Hawk ducks under the attempt and makes his way to the ropes again! He comes roaring back for a clothesline of his own to both men!!! OH! Khamsin was the only one who felt that, because Ryan Savage ducked under that attempt that time, and HE now heads to the ropes! Savage comes rushing back with a BIG BOOT THAT FLIPS HAWK INSIDE OUT!!
Jake Mercer: Ryan Savage wasting no time now, lifts Hawk to his feet before irish whipping him into a corner! He charges forward for a CORNER SPLASH, before throwing Hawk over the top rope and to the outside!! Just like that, Hawk is taken out of the equation, as the fans in attendance lay into Ryan with boos! Look out now though, Khamsin is back!! He is perched up on the top rope, patiently waiting for Ryan to turn around! Ryan with a smile on his face, turns towards Khamsin who leaps for a DIVING CROSSBODY!! IT CONNECTS! KHAMSIN HOOKS THE LEG, LOOKING TO END THIS EARLY!
Jake Mercer: And a quick kickout! Khamsin kips up, as Ryan Savage stumbles up to his feet too. Khamsin delivers a STIFF FOREARM to the side of the head of Ryan, before a spinning back kick to the gut! Khamsin sprints for the ropes and comes back with a HIP ATTACK TO THE STOMACH! Ryan drops to a knee, as Khamsin once agains heads for the ropes, rebounds and GOES FOR A FAMOUSER!! OH!! RYAN WITH THE STRENGTH LIFTS KHAMSIN IN THE AIR IN A POWERBOMB POSITION! Khamsin, recognising his position swiftly, delivers rights to the temple of Ryan Savage, and somersaults down the back of Ryan, trying for a rollup, but Ryan grabs Khamsin by the head and pulls him out from underneath his legs and to his feet! RYAN WITH AN UPPERCUT!! AND ANOTHER!! AND ANOTHER!! Khamsin stumbling back, blocks a fourth uppercut attempt with hands before HITTING A STEP-UP ENZIGURI! Khamsin ONCE AGAIN runs for the ropes, and comes roaring back but OHHHH RYAN SAVAGE WITH A BIG BOOT!!!
Stew-O: NO JAKE!!! KHAMSIN DUCKS UNDER THE ATTEMPT AND RUNS TOWARDS THE ROPES… WHAT THE HELL?! OH MY!!!! KHAMSIN FLIPS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND LANDS RIGHT ON TOP OF HAWK, WHO HAD JUST RISEN UP TO A VERTICAL BASE!!! BACK TO THE GROUND OUR EAW HALL OF FAMER GOES!! Khamsin doesn’t want to waste any more time now, as he quickly rises back to his feet! Ryan Savage walks over to the ropes and tries to lift up Khamsin by the hair from over the ropes, but Khamsin baseball slides THROUGH Ryan’s legs and rolls up to his feet!! This man’s agility is insane! ROUNDHOUSE KICK SENDS RYAN SAVAGE IN A DAZE! HE DROPS TO HIS KNEES! Khamsin with ANOTHER step-up enziguri, and Ryan Savage hits the mat!! Khamsin noticing Ryan’s positioning right now, lifts himself up to a vertical base before standing over the body of Ryan! He turns around, facing away from him… NILE RIVER CROSSING!!!! THE STANDING CORKSCREW MOONSAULT CONNECTS!! HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEE–
Stew-O: KICKOUT BY RYAN! WHETHER KHAMSIN LIKES IT OR NOT, IT’S GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE MORE THAN THAT TO PUT OUT RYAN SAVAGE! Khamsin flips to his feet, and begins to stare right at Ryan Savage who begins to struggle to his feet. Patiently waiting, Khamsin finally goes to strike! He gets Ryan Savage in a pumphandle lift position!! NO!! RYAN SAVAGE WITH ELBOWS TO THE HEAD OF KHAMSIN, AND KHAMSIN RELEASES AND DROPS TO ONE KNEE! He leans on the second rope there, as Hurricane Hawk looks to get back into this one! He slowly climbs up the apron, as he and Khamsin both rise up to a vertical position! WHOA, LOOK OUT!! RYAN SAVAGE WITH THE BIG BANG IMPACT TO KHAMSIN!!!– …NO!!! HE CONNECTS WITH HAWK, AND HAWK FALLS TO THE OUTSIDE ONCE AGAIN!! THIS MAN CANNOT FIND A WAY TO GET INTO THIS MATCHUP AT ALL CAN HE?!
Jake Mercer: NOT AT ALL, STEW!! IN HAWK’S RETURN, HE’S UNFORTUNATELY FOUND NO OFFENCE AT ALL IN THIS MATCH THUS FAR!! OH, LOOK OUT!! KHAMSIN GOING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX IN THE RING TO RYAN SAVAGE, BUT RYAN SAVAGE MANAGES TO GRAB KHAMSIN IN A HEADLOCK AND FLIPS HIM FORWARD TO THE MAT!! The two get back to their feet! Khamsin with a clothesline attempt, but Ryan DUCKS under it, wraps his arms around the body of Khamsin BEFORE LIFTING HIM OVER HIS HEAD FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX OF HIS OWN!! Khamsin lands on his upper back, and rolls up to his knees, holding that area of his body in agony!! OHHH!! RYAN SAVAGE CONNECTS WITH THE BIG BANG IMPACT THIS TIME TO KHAMSIN! KHAMSIN SLUMPS TO THE GROUND, BUT RYAN SAVAGE IS NOT DONE!! RYAN BACK HIMSELF UP INTO A CORNER, AND BEGINS TO WATCH CLOSELY AT KHAMSIN, WHO BEGINS TO SLOWLY RISE BACK TO HIS FEET. KHAMSIN IS UP!! RYAN LETS OUT A HUUUUUGE ROAR TO DISAPPROVAL FROM THESE FANS, AND RUSHES FORWARD FOR THE WIDOW’S WAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Wokeuplikethis” by Playboi Carti plays to cheers as Hurricane Hawk rises up to his feet with a conceited grin on his face. He pulls the referee up to his feet and asks for him to raise his hand, which he complies.)
Ring Announcer: The winner of this match… HHHURRRRIIICCCAAANNNEEE HAAAAAAAAAAAWWKKK!!!!
Stew-O: I mean… congratulations for a win for Hurricane Hawk in his return to EAW, but… like that?! Seriously?!
Jake Mercer: Ahh, who the hell cares how he won, Stew? HE WON! That’s all that matters!
Stew-O: This man barely had ANY offence in this match! He couldn’t get back into the ring after Ryan Savage sent him out early! He stole a victory here, Jake!
Jake Mercer: Well he wouldn’t be the Show Slayer if he DIDN’T do something like that now would he, Stew?! CONGRATS HAWK!!! IT’S GREAT TO HAVE YOU BACK!!!
(Hurricane Hawk jumps onto the top of the turnbuckle to celebrate this tremendous return victory while Khamsin and Ryan Savage vent their frustrations out towards it.)
St. Anger leaves a message about why he didn’t appear last week on Dynasty [RRS]
(The camera returns back towards the ring area with the crowd starting to liven up when the ring announcer is placed as the focus of the camera.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall!!!
(“The Catalyst” by Linkin Park plays throughout the arena as Aka Manah makes his way to the ring in a black feathered cap and black/white leather tights)
Ring Announcer: First, making his way to the ring… from Palo Alto, California!… weighing in at 204 pounds!… AKA MMMMMAAAAANNNNNAAAAAHHHHH!!!…
(“I Better” by Lorn plays throughout the arena as The Mexican Samurai makes his way to the ring in a pair of vale tudo shorts with MMA gloves)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, making his way to the ring… from San Jose, California!… weighing in at 210 pounds!… THE MEXICAN SSSSSAAAAAMMMMMUUUUURRRRRAAAAAIIIII!!!…
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: The bell has rung which means that this match is underway! Aka Manah stands back for a moment, not making any sudden— HE TOOK HIS EYES OFF OF HIS OPPONENT FOR BARELY A SECOND AND GETS KICKED IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! THAT’S WHAT HE GETS FOR TAKING HIS EYES OFF OF HIM! Samurai takes it to his opponent with the kicks before backing him up in the corner and knees him in the stomach repeatedly! Then he throws him out of the corner and onto the mat before he kicks him again and again while he’s on the mat! Manah tries to get back up to his feet but Samurai kicks him in the side of the head before picking him up himself and throwing him into the corner… Samurai tries to set him up in the corner but Manah gets out of the corner and backs Samurai into the corner, keeping him there… the referee gets in there to break it up! Manah with the clean break and he smirks at Samurai but Samurai shoves him! He’s not appreciating the cockiness from his opponent, not a bit!
Jake Mercer: Aka Manah hasn’t even been here for more than a few months and he’s too cocky right now! But I like it! I like how cocky he is, that’s how he has to be if he’s to win this match! He takes a step back and… Samurai tries to kick him but Manah sidesteps it… Manah with a right hand! Another right hand! Then he stomps away at the stomach of Samurai! Again and again! The referee gets in there to get Manah away from Samurai and while the referee is trying to separate him… MUAY THAI KNEES! MUAY THAI KNEES TO THE BODY OF MANAH AND HE’S DOWN, ON HIS KNEES, ON THE MAT… KNEE RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! That could be it right there…
Stew-O: But Samurai isn’t ending it there! He’s not ending it right now, he’s taking it to his opponent! That’s what he gets for being too cocky! Samurai gets down on the mat right him and gets him in a… TRIANGLE CHOKE! HE HAS HIM IN THAT TRIANGLE CHOKE AND HE’S TRYING TO CHOKE HIM OUT! HE… HE BREAKS UP THE TRIANGLE CHOKE HIMSELF? Samurai gets back up to his feet before kicking Manah in the back of the head a few times… he picks him up and sets him up for a… SNAP SUPLEX! MANAH IS DOWN ON THE MAT AND HE’S HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING UP RIGHT NOW! THAT WAS ONE HELL OF A SNAP SUPLEX!
Jake Mercer: That was but Samurai has his eyes on Manah, he hasn’t taken his eyes off of him this whole match! Within a blink of an eye, Samurai has been roughing up his opponent throughout this match and this could be the end! Manah tries to get up to his feet… he… he’s back up! Manah is back up to his feet but barely and… SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF MANAH AND HE ISN’T OPENING HIS MOUTH FOR A FEW WEEKS AFTER THAT SUPERKICK!
Stew-O: Manah is on his knees, on the mat and… Samurai takes a step back before… SAMURAI STAB!!!!!! THE DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE FOREHEAD OF MANAH AND HE’S OUT OF IT WITH THAT!!! THERE’S A PIN AND THE REFEREE IS RIGHT THERE TO COUNT IT!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!!!!!!………
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“I Better” by Lorn plays throughout the arena as The Mexican Samurai gets back up to his feet and has his arm raised by the referee)
Ring Announcer: Here’s your winner… THE MEXICAN SSSSSAAAAAMMMMMUUUUURRRRRAAAAAIIIII!!!
Stew-O: What a dominating performance by The Mexican Samurai here tonight as he might have just found his groove to get back into the swing of things here on Dynasty!
Jake Mercer: That he might have, Stew, but simply doing it against a re-debuting Aka Manah straight off of the NEO roster isn’t going to be a phenomenal way to make a splash! However, we’ll be right back after this short commercial break for more action just like this!
(The Mexican Samurai celebrates his victory over Aka Manah as he stands on the turnbuckle with a proud face while the show cuts to commercial break.)
(The show returns from commercial break with the crowd excited for what’s to come next with the ring announcer standing in the middle of the ring with the camera focused on him.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!!!
(“Blackout” by Company Flow blasts from the speakers as we see Lethal Consequences walk out to the stage with a bit of disdain garnered from the audience when he makes his appearance. He simply raises his hands up in a tone of self-confidence before he walks down the ramp with a scowl on his face as he makes his way towards the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Making his way to the ring, he is from Oakland, California… weighing in at 230 pounds… “The King of the Mountain” LEETTTHHHAAAALLLLL COONNNSSSEEEQQQUUUEEEENNNCCCEEEESSSSS!!!
Jake Mercer: Lethal Consequences was the first member to join Sebastian Monroe’s team this for Territorial Invasion through a promise of a title shot.
Stew-O: Sebastian didn’t let him become team captain and then promised a title shot if he won. What Lethal didn’t know was that the match was going to be a Divide and Conquer match with the sole winner of the match getting a shot at the World Heavyweight Title.
Jake Mercer: It does seem that Lethal Consequences got the short end of the stick there.
(“Love, Sex, Riot” by Issues hits as Ahren Fournier comes out to a huge pop. Ahren comes out in his police uniform as he high fives a couple fans and jumps into the ring.)

Lethal grabs the arm of Ahren and whips him into the ropes, he attempts a clothesline but Ahren ducks underneath and comes charging from the opposite end but Lethal Consequences reverses with a back elbow that sends Fournier to the mat.
Stew-O: LC is quick to grab Ahren by the hair and drag him into the corner, he stomps him a couple times in the chest and the drags his boot across the face of Ahren Fournier. LC hits the ropes! Face Wash as Ahren gets his head kicked off and goes through the ropes tumbling to the outside.
Jake Mercer: Ahren looks out of it, as Lethal Consequences taunts as he nonchalantly steps through the ropes, Ahren grabs his legs out of nowhere and sweeps him!

Ahren is trying to fight out of it but Lethal gets up and drives a knee into the back of Ahren and squeezes on the headlock even tighter. Ahren trying to get fan support. Ahren starts gyrating his hips! He’s feeling it at the moment as the crowd gets louder trying to get him to break the headlock. Lethal Consequences puts on more pressure but Ahren won’t stop moving.

Jake Mercer: Phenomenal match between these two men and a great way to prepare for the trials that are to come in the big Divide and Conquer Match!
(The camera pans backstage with the door to the office of StarrStan is placed front and center when both Scott Diamond and Darkane walk to the door and stand before each other.)
Scott Diamond: So, you’re the one that’s supposed to challenge me for this title, huh? I know you’ve gotten a couple of lucky victories to your name, but this isn’t going to be a walk in the park for you. This is my first time have a piece of gold on my shoulder since 2015 and I don’t intend for the new kid on the block to take it away from me. So, why don’t we just get this over with?
Darkane: Oh, I agree in that we should get this over with. As for your intention to cling onto this championship because it gives you a glimmer of hope towards returning back to the days where you dominated EAW, I’m the nightmare that will snatch that dream away from you when I get my championship opportunity. You as a Hardcore Champion? You don’t represent Hardcore AT ALL! As for me, I was made to be a champion of what it means to be hardcore.
Scott Diamond: Well, I guess we’ll find out.
(Scott Diamond fixes his tie up before he walks into the room to see StarrStan in his office, going through some paperwork in regards to Territorial Invasion, as he looks up to meet the two men destined to do battle for the EAW Hardcore Championship in the near future.)
StarrStan: If it isn’t Scott Diamond and Darkane! Let me guess, considering you’re both here at the same time, I’m assuming this is about the EAW Hardcore Championship Match between the both of you.
Darkane: Correct. A couple of weeks ago, I defeated four other men for the right to challenge for the EAW Hardcore Championship and now, I hear that I won’t be able to get that opportunity at Territorial Invasion. What’s up with that, Starr?
StarrStan: Well, EAW has the show booked to the brim already with what we can do for the show and I don’t want to have to make this match between the two of you be put on the backburner because of it.
Scott Diamond: More like you don’t want us to be seen as a filler match for the show.
StarrStan: The EAW Hardcore Championship isn’t a title for someone to be “filler” and you should know that, Scott. I’ve talked it over with Sebastian Monroe and he agrees that we want this match between the two of you to be on a big stage to where you can both capitalize on the position you’re in. With that said, we have our own exclusive FPV in the works known as House of Glass where extreme and hardcore thrives. On that show, how can we not have the both of you NOT compete on the show? What do you say? Scott Diamond vs. Darkane for the EAW Hardcore Championship at House of Glass?
Darkane: Look, I don’t care where it’s at. Territorial Invasion, Dynasty, a house show in some godforsaken town in a bingo hall, I just want the match that was owed to me when I won that Hardcore Invitational. The cherry on this is that it will be on a show where the entire thing is hardcore. I’m in.
Scott Diamond: So you have to tell me that I have to wait another month before I can get my name onto a FPV? Just because you can’t find a spot for me, your EAW Hardcore Champion, on Territorial Invasion? You’re kidding me.
StarrStan: Look, just because I said you can’t defend the title at Territorial Invasion, it doesn’t mean that you won’t be involved. In fact, I have an offer to where I would like both of you to be a part of Team Starr in the Divide and Conquer Match. Darkane, this could lead to a world championship opportunity on top of the EAW Hardcore Championship one you have. Scott, you could be on the FPV and have a main spot that you have been dying to have. What do you say?
Darkane: Sure. Not like there’s any other chances that I have, plus I could be the first person to hold the EAW Answers World Championship and the EAW Hardcore Championship at the end of all of this. With that said, you got a member for your team.
(Darkane shakes StarrStan’s hand and agrees to be a part of Team Starr with StarrStan smiling in joy for his acceptance.)
Scott Diamond: Instead of defending my championship on Territorial Invasion, you want me to team up with a man that has made me jump through a TREMENDOUS amount of hoops to get this EAW Hardcore Championship so that he can run the company? Make me jump through more hoops to retain it? After I have someone beat, schedule a rematch with the full intention of costing me this championship? I’ll pass on the offer, Starr, but you know what this makes me want to do? I think I’ll join Team Monroe! Maybe he’ll give me the appreciation of a champion that I deserve in this business. Darkane, you got what you wanted and I hope it’s everything that you hoped it would be, because I will knock you flat on the canvas when I get the chance. Bet on it.
(Scott Diamond gives Darkane a scowl before he starts to walk his way out of the office to leave Darkane and StarrStan to themselves to speak about the Divide and Conquer Match.)
(The camera returns back towards the ring area with the crowd starting to liven up when the ring announcer is placed as the focus of the camera.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
(‘i’ by Kendrick Lamar hits the speakers as Target Smiles runs out from behind the curtain to joyous applause from the crowd. He runs down the ramp, high fiving the smiling faces as he passes by)
Announcer: Introducing first, from Parts Unknown…Weighing in at 200 pounds…He is ‘The Wandering Warrior’. TARGET. SSMMIIIIIILLLEEEESSS!!!
Stew-O: Welcome back ladies and gentlemen. We are pleased to welcome to the ring one of Dynasty’s hottest rising talents in the enigmatic Target Smiles.
Mercer: You are telling me. I’m not usually one for masked weirdos but Target has done a lot to raise his stock and earn my respect since debuting last season. It has been a slow start for him on the title hunt this time around but he’ll be hoping earn his way into one in the big Divide and Conquer match set between Team StarrStan and Team Monroe right around the corner at Territorial Invasion.
(‘DNA’ by Kendrick Lamar hits the speakers marches out to Stage. The crowd shower him with boo but he ignores them, keeping his focus on Target Smiles a he descends the ramp.
Announcer: And his opponent, from Baltimore, Maryland…Weighing in at 260 pounds…He is “The Ice Man”. SCOTT. OOOAAAAAASSSSIIISSSS!!!
Stew-O: And here is Scott now, prepared for what is something of a grudge match here on Dynasty.
Mercer: That is right. It was back at Burning Desire when Target Smiles denied Scott Oasis to earn his place in the Extreme Enigma Elimination at Pain For Pride. He fell short in the end but is back on the hunt, and most recently will find himself facing Scott again under multiman stipulations.But first, the rematch we have all been waiting for.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: OASIS LUNGES IN STRAIGHT ON THE BELL! But Target leaps back out of the way, sidestepping him and maintaining distance. Oasis again moves in, trying to corner Smiles and cut off his movement, Smiles again evades – NO! OASIS CAUGHT HIM BY THE WRIST. SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE TAKES TARGET CLEAR OFF HIS FEET! BUT TARGET FLOATS OVER. KNEE LIF! ANOTHER KNEE STRAIGHT INTO THE FACE OF SCOTT OASIS, SNAPPING HIS SKULL BACK! SUPERKICK!!! TARGET LANDS FLUSH WITH THE SUPERKICK!!!
Mercer: But Scott doesn’t go down. Incredible fortitude by The Ice Man to stay on his feet, but he is rocked as Target here is threatening a repeat of Burning Desire. Smiles pulls him in, looking for the ddt…BUT SCOTT COUNTERS, THROWING HIM UP ON THE SHOULDERS FOR A SAMOAN DROP! Smiles was caught off guard by that one as Oasis hooks the leg.
Stew-O: KICK OUT! A little early for the pin perhaps but it matters little. Scott Oasis is the first man back to his feet and drags Target Smiles back up by the mask and…wait…HE’S TRYING TO RIP IT OFF! SCOTT OASIS WITH THE DEEPEST OF INSULTS AS HE TRIES TO TEAR THROUGH THE MASK BUT HE MAY REGRET IT! That decision gets Target miles to kick things up a gear and he starts to unload with wild forearm to the head as well as the odd stiff kick to the knee. Oasis is a bit discombobulated, but he shows Target away and makes distance. LOW DROPKICK FROM TARGET! OASIS IS DROPPED TO A KNEE AS TARGET BOUNCES STRAIGHT BACK UP, FIRING AWAY WITH A SERIES OF HEAVY ROUNDHOUSE KICKS TO THE CHEST!
Mercer: Smiles speeds off, hitting the ropes and rebounding at Oasis laterally FOR AN IMPRESSIVE HURRICANRANA DRIVER SPIKING OASIS HEAD FIRST INTO THE CANVAS! Target capitalises with the Oklahoma Roll but Oasis himself rolls clear out of it, finding Target Smiles’ back in the process. HIGH ANGLE GERMAN SUPLEX DROPS TARGET RIGHT ON HIS NECK! BUT OASIS ISN’T THROUGH. He keeps his arms locked around the waist and hauls Target Smiles back up in the wheelbarrow…BUT TARGET COUNTERS WITH THE VICTORY ROLL! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
Stew-O: NEARFALL, TARGET NEARLY STOLE IT! Both men scramble back to a vertical base BUT TARGET GETS THERE FIRST WITH A SUPERKICK! AND SMILES TO FOLLOW IT UP, LEAPING NOW INTO THE DDT…BUT NO! OASIS COUNTERS AND HITS THE URANAGE SIDE SLAM WITH AUTHORITY! And Oasis is just trying to smother him now. Trying to keep the smaller, quicker man down on the canvas and squeeze away his breath energy with the head lock.
Mercer: A wise tactic, but Target will just not give up. He fights his way up to a seated position, Scott Oasis still trying to grind him down as he looks for a surfboard of sorts, but he can’t really lock it in. Smiles is doing everything he can to keep his arm from being isolated SO OASIS COMMITS FULLY TO THE CHOKE! TARGET COULD FADE OUT RIGHT HERE AND THAT WOULD BE GAME OVER! BUT HE IS FIGHTING IT! I DON’T HAVE A CLUE WHERE TARGET SMILES IS FINDING THIS STRENGTH BUT HE IS FIGHTING TO HIS FEET! HE’S DONE IT! HE’S SOMEHOW FOUGHT HIS WAY UP WITH THE FULL WEIGHT OF SCOTT OASIS ON HIS BACK AS THE CHOKE REMAINS LOCKED! TARGET ISN’T OUT OF THE WOODS YET…
Stew-O: BACKPACK JAWBREAKER!!! THERE IT IS! TARGET SMILES BREAKING THE HOLD AND THERE IS THE OPENING HE NEEDS! A sharp kick to the midsection has Scott Oasis reeling over, and Smiles applies the double underhook. BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! INCREDIBLE STRENGTH FOR TARGET SMILES TO PULL THAT OFF ON A MAN AS BUILT AS SCOTT OASIS! And with that Scott appears to be staying down. Target Smiles sees that this is his chance and bounds straight towards the corner. HE ASCENDS ALL THE WAY TO THE HIGH RENT DISTRICT AS HE HOPES HE CAN FINISH IT HERE…ROLLING SENTON!!!
Mercer: BUT SCOTT! SCOTT GOT THE KNEES UP AT THE LAST AT THE LAST MOMENT AND NOW TARGET SMILES IS ROLLING AROUND, KICKING THE CANVAS IN PAIN! BUT SCOTT IS SHOWING NO MERCY! HE HEAVES TARGET STRAIGHT UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AND INTO THE TORTURE RACK! HERE IS THE CHIROPRACTIC PRACTICE OF SCOTT OASIS AS HE WORKS TO REALIGN THE SPINE OF TARGET SMILES WITH A MALICIOUS LOOK OF PLEASURE ON HIS FACE…BACKBREAKER! SCOTT DROPS TARGET ONTO HIS KNEE FOR A DEVASTATING BACKBREAKER THAT NEARLY SNAPS TARGET SMILES IN HALF. Some truly malicious work here from The Ice Man. but after all that, Target Smiles still plucks up the strength to drag himself off the canvas. Big respect to this kid but something tells me he should have just stayed down. He staggers to his feet by the turnbuckles. AND HERE’S SCOTT! OASIS CHARGING IN FOR THE CORNER SHOULDER TACKLE!
Stew-O: HOLD UP! TARGET DODGES IT! HE THROWS HIMSELF OVER THE ROPES AND ONTO THE APRON AS SCOTT OASIS DIVES STRAIGHT INTO THE RING POST!!! Scott winces in pain as he drags himself out BUT HE TURNS RIGHT INTO AN ENZUIGIRI FROM TARGET ON THE APRON! OASIS IS STUNNED, AND HERE IS TARGET LOOKING TO END IT…SPRINGBOARD! OH MY GOD!!!
Mercer: SCOTT CAUGHT HIM! SMILES WAS LOOKING TO FINISH HIM AGAIN WITH THE THE SPRINGBOARD CORKSCREW ROUNDHOUSE BUT OASIS HAD IT SCOUTED! PRELUDE TO DESTRUCTION!!! THE REVERSE-SPIN POWERSLAM DRIVES TARGET SMILES INTO THE CANVAS WITH A THUNDEROUS CRASH AND OASIS IS GOING WILD WITH THE ADRENALINE! HE’S LINING IT UP…THE RELAPSE!!! PUNT KICK CONNECTS RIGHT INTO SMILES’ TEMPLE AND HE IS OUT! OASIS GOES DOWN FOR THE COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘DNA’ by Kendrick Lamar fills the stadium as officials rush to check on Target Smiles. Scott Oasis chuckles to himself as the once smiling faces voice their displeasure.)
Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, your winner…SCOTT OASIS!!!
Stew-O: A tough fought battle between both men but in the end Scott Oasis avenges his past humiliation. Monroe must be thrilled.
Mercer: I’ll say. But damn what a match that was. Target may just have thought he had it as he went back to the well and that springboard corkscrew roundhouse that put Scott away last time. That was his downfall though. Scott learned from his mistakes like a true champ and he
had it scouted for a well earned victory.
(The camera pans backstage to a meeting room with StarrStan holding a bunch of files and a laptop, looking to be preparing for the war with the control of Dynasty at stake, as he starts to set things up for his meeting for the night. A knock is heard from the wooden door as StarrStan’s attention looks up towards the door and responds.)
StarrStan: Come in.
(The door swings open to reveal a black leather hooded figure with blue jeans on to reveal the face of Jacob Senn in the hood as he walks towards the chair across from him. He lounges in the seat, propping his feet up on the conference table, with a look of distaste coming from StarrStan as Senn remains silent.)
StarrStan: Jacob, I’m going to cut to the chase. The Divide and Conquer Match is something that I hoped you’ve paid attention to and if not, it’s for the control of Dynasty altogether. I’m sure that Sebastian Monroe has a viable team due to the added stipulation of the last man standing getting a world championship opportunity at their disposal. I created this meeting between you and I because I want to do what I can to make sure that you’re on my team. You’re passionate about the state of Dynasty, you want it to be the premier brand and a showcase of talent for men like you, and I understand that. You and I are born of the same cloth, unlike Sebastian Monroe. We’ve been through the trials that this company forces us to endure, we’ve both dealt with an obsession that we have to get through, bringing me to yours with Mr. DEDEDE. He’s our chairman now just like I intend to be your General Manager and our days of fighting our battles in the ring are over. This unhealthy obsession that you have towards gaining some sort of redemption from what happened at Pain for Pride X, it’s causing a decline in your performance to where you haven’t been able to be the Jacob Senn that the world knows you can be, and that’s who I want on this team. I want the man that has proven to be one of the most dangerous men on this roster, I want the man that will go in that Divide and Conquer Match and punish whoever stands in his way of redemption, and I want the man that stands everything that Dynasty is known for. So what do you say? Do you want t– What are you doing here?
(StarrStan has noticed that someone has entered the room with Jacob Senn looking over towards the door himself to see… Sebastian Monroe standing at the door with a smile on his face walking into the room and sitting between the two.)
Sebastian Monroe: What do you think I’m doing here, StarrStan? Do you honestly think I’m going to let you snatch up a talent like Jacob Senn on your team? You have to be insane! Listen, you know how people like Mr. DEDEDE and him are when they are in a power position. They find their favorite people and support them to the position to being world champion and me, I take the approach to where the people that have deserved and earn the distinction to be in those positions should have them. Hell, I even believe that this obsession you have towards Mr. DEDEDE is justified because believe me, the man is a narcissist that only wants to be able boost his own personal ego through this power that he has. The man has an ego that has been a detriment to talent like you, Xavier Williams, and more because he can’t handle the fact that his time has passed. If all of that doesn’t strike a chord with you, I want you to remember a couple of years ago. I want you to remember the war between Dynasty and Zack Crash. When Dynasty had to survive as its own entity, it was you and me at the top to stand up for the roster. When Dynasty had secured itself to be back into the company, the both of us along with numerous other names fought for that right. When OMERTA wanted to take control of the World Heavyweight Championship division, it was us that brought that dissolution and the end of them. We’ve been through wars before and have fought against the strongest resistance towards what we wanted from this business and tonight, I want you on my team to do the same thing. I’ve supported you with all of that, even when you were World Heavyweight Champion, and I will continue to support you after I retain control of Dynasty. So, what do you say, Jacob? Will you join my team and continue our road to a better Dynasty?
StarrStan: Look, I know your hesitation towards a person like me. I’m not going to be the way that you believe that I will be for this brand. I will support you if you support me, I will fight for you if you fight for me, and that’s what I will do for everyone that stands with me in this war for power. I want to make sure that this brand is what you wanted it to be and trust me, it will be. However, I can’t do that without someone like you on my team. Are you going to join me in this fight for what is right for this brand or are you going to side with Sebastian Monroe?
(Jacob Senn takes his boots off of the conference table and leans forward, removing his hood from his head as he cracks his neck, holding his chin as he ponders the thought about what team he should join.)
Jacob Senn: The team I’m joining… is Team Monroe. Sebastian Monroe has always been good to me and he does have a point. The elitists from your generation that has been promoted to power, all it has led to is corruption and chaos for this brand and the company. Don’t take this the wrong way, but that’s my decision. I’ll see the both of you later tonight.
(Jacob Senn stands up along with Sebastian Monroe, with the both of them shaking hands to signal the confirmation of their deal, as Senn walks out of the room with StarrStan disappointed about being unable to secure him to his team. Sebastian cracks a smile towards his opponent as the show cuts to commercial break.)
(The show returns from commercial break with the ring announcer standing in the middle of the ring with the crowd behind him waiting in anticipation.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall… AND IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!!!
(“You Are My Sunshine” by Alone starts to fill the entire Ice Palace with the crowd not too happy with the arrival of Eclipse Diemos, walking out into a darkened arena with a sole spotlight cast down upon him, as he walks forward towards the ring with a creepy smile on his face followed by a maddened laughter.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from The Prescott Hills Sanatorium in Arizona… weighing in at 286 pounds… “Fear Incarnate” ECCLLLIIIPPPSSSSEEEEE DIIEEEMMMOOOOSSSSS!!!
Stew-O: It has been confirmed that the EAW Answers World Championship will be defended at Territorial Invasion with The Pizza Boy going head-to-head with Eclipse Diemos on that grand stage! That match is going to be a fantastic one, but tonight, Eclipse has to prove why he has been placed into the contender’s position!
Jake Mercer: Eclipse Diemos has a mountain to climb because not only will his title match be against a man that has been renown in lucking his way out to victory, but it will be at an event that has been the bane of his career! This ascension of the shadows that he’s been talking about will be a cathartic one if he’s able to become the EAW Answers World Champion!
(“You Want It Darker” by Leonard Cohen echoes throughout the arena when Nico Borg steps out to the stage with the Cash in the Vault briefcase in his possession, walking down the ramp as he holds it high in the air to taunt the jeering crowd, making his way into the ring to meet his opponent.)
Ring Announcer: Making his way to the ring, he is from Valetta, Malta… he weighs in at 196 pounds… he is Mr. Cash in the Vault… “Invictus” NIICCCOOOOO BOORRRGGGGG!!!
Jake Mercer: Mr. Cash in the Vault has made his presence felt to the EAW populace and Stew, I want to tell you something. Ever since Nico Borg has been drafted over to Dynasty, he has YET to lose a match on this brand! Not one! The man has been an indomitable and unconquerable foe to people in this business and it just goes to prove why he holds that title opportunity in his hands!
Stew-O: Are you sure about that, Jake? I’m pretty sure that h–
Jake Mercer: THE UNSTOPPABLE AND UNVANQUISHED NICO BORG! Give it up to him, Stew! This man deserves it!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: Well, the main event has been called to start WITH ECLIPSE DIEMOS RUSHING IN FOR THE RUNNING CROSSBODY TO TAKE DOWN MR. CASH IN THE VAULT RIGHT HERE! JUMPING ENZIGURI! ECLIPSE IS RATTLED WITH THE STIFF KICK TO THE JAW WHEN NICO BORG ROLLS UP TO HIS FEET AND SPRINTS TO THE GROGGY CONTENDER! CRUCIFIX DRIVER! ECLIPSE LANDS ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AND SHOULDERS AS NICO HOLDS HIM DOWN TO GO FOR AN EARLY PIN ATTEMPT IN THIS MATCH!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Jake Mercer: ECLIPSE DIEMOS THROWS HIMSELF OFF OF THE CANVAS TO BE ABLE TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN ATTEMPT! Nico Borg looking to surprise Eclipse with that pin right there and prove that he should be competing for the EAW Answers World Championship right now BUT HE’S ALREADY ON HIS FEET AND LOOKING TO END IT RIGHT HERE! Eclipse pushes himself right onto his feet WITH NICO HOOKING HIM IN BETWEEN HIS LEGS! HE WANTS IT! LAST RITES! NO! ECLIPSE IS ABLE TO SHOVE NICO OFF OF HIM AND ROLL OUT OF THE RING TO THE OUTSIDE IN ORDER TO ESCAPE WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN A DEFINITIVE END TO THIS MATCH!
Stew-O: You can see Eclipse Diemos leaning on the ring apron to try and get a moment of reprieve from the assault from Mr. Cash in the Vault, but Nico Borg rolls through the other side of the ring AND RUSHES IN WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE! DISCUS BIG BOOT! ECLIPSE SPINS WITH A QUICKNESS TO NAIL NICO IN THE SIDE OF THE FACE WITH HIS MASSIVE BOOT! YOU CAN PROBABLY SEE THE IMPRINT MADE ON HIS FACE FROM THE FORCE OF THAT SHOT! Eclipse walks over Nico before bringing him up to his feet grabbing him by the waist RIGHT BEFORE HE DRIVES HIS SPINE INTO THE RING APRON BEFORE TOSSING HIM RIGHT BACK INTO THE RING!
Jake Mercer: Eclipse Diemos rolls back into the ring himself before the referee is able to make an attempt to count the two of them out as he stands on his feet STOMPING AWAY AT THE FACE OF NICO BORG TO KEEP HIM DOWN ON THE CANVAS FOR THE MOMENT! He takes a moment to relish in the reaction he’s gaining from the crowd with this punishment he’s inflicting upon Nico before he drags him up to his feet THROWING HIM TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE LIKE HE ALMOST WEIGHS NOTHING! Eclipse can feel the destructive forces coursing through his veins AS HE SPRINTS IN FOR A RUNNING CORNER SPLASH STRAIGHT INTO NICO! KNEE STRIKE! ECLIPSE IS LEFT IN A DAZE WHILE NICO STARTS TO MAKE A CLIMB TO THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE! HE’S STOPPED AT THE MIDDLE AS ECLIPSE WAS ABLE TO QUICKLY SHAKE IT OFF AND STRIKE WITH A JAB TO BE ABLE TO MEET HIM ON THE MIDDLE ROPE!
Stew-O: Eclipse Diemos and Nico Borg are both on the turnbuckle fighting it out between each other with Eclipse throwing straight right hands into Nico’s jaw while Nico throws elbow strikes into his! These two men are throwing shots between each other BEFORE ECLIPSE OFFSETS THE BALANCE BETWEEN THE TWO WITH A SKULL-RATTLING HEADBUTT RIGHT ON THE BRIDGE OF NICO’S NOSE! Nico has been left stunned with Eclipse taking advantage by hooking him in AS HE THROWS HIM BACK WITH THE SUPERPLEX DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS! A MASSIVE MOVE RIGHT THERE FROM THE CHAMPIONSHIP CONTENDER TO KEEP THIS MATCH IN HIS FAVOR! Both men are down on the floor BUT ECLIPSE ARCHES HIS BACK AS HE RISES UP LIKE A SCENE FROM THE EXORCISM TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET!
Jake Mercer: Man, that is just another level of creepy, if you ask me! Eclipse Diemos finally makes it back to his feet before he turns around towards Nico Borg to see him trying to get to his feet! Nico stands back to his feet and turns around RIGHT INTO THE ARMS OF ECLIPSE AS HE HOOKS HIM AROUND HIS NECK FOR THE URANAGE! ELBOW STRIKE! ELBOW STRIKE! ONE MORE ELBOW STRIKE LANDS INTO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD BEFORE NICO GRABS ECLIPSE BY THE NECK AND THROWS HIM FORWARD WITH THE SNAPMARE! Nico proceeds to rush back into the ropes and rebound back WITH A DROPKICK RIGHT INTO THE LOWER SPINE OF ECLIPSE AS YOU SEEM COLLAPSE TO THE CANVAS! Nico rolls up to his feet and makes his way over towards the turnbuckle CLIMBING HIS WAY UP TO THE TOP! ECLIPSE IS STILL DOWN FROM THE DROPKICK WHEN NICO FLIES OFF OF THE TOP ROPE! LEAP OF FAITH! NICO LANDS RIGHT ONTO ECLIPSE WITH THE FROG SPLASH AS HE HOOKS ECLIPSE IN FOR THE PIN!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Stew-O: STILL NOT ENOUGH! ECLIPSE DIEMOS IS ABLE TO THROW HIS SHOULDER UP OFF OF THE CANVAS AS THE MATCH STILL GOES ON! Nico Borg stands on his feet and grabs Eclipse by his hair to drag him onto his feet BUT ECLIPSE RESPONDS WITH A MASSIVE UPPERCUT TO THE JAW BEFORE HE CAN EVEN THINK OF DOING ANYTHING! Eclipse wastes no motion as he grabs Nico by the neck HOOKING HIM IN BEFORE THROWING HIM BACK WITH A SNAP SUPLEX TO THE FLOOR! ECLIPSE ROLLS WITH NICO TO BRING HIM BACK TO HIS FEET, CHANGING THINGS UP WITH HOW HE HAS NICO HOOKED, BEFORE HE LIFTS HIM UP IN THE AIR DROP HIM BACK DOWN WITH THE URANAGE! NICO IS DRIVEN STRAIGHT DOWN TO THE CANVAS BEFORE ECLIPSE RUSHES AND JUMPS IN THE AIR TO DROP HIS MASSIVE FRAME DOWN ONTO HIM WITH THE RUNNING SENTON! ECLIPSE ROLLS OVER ONTO NICO AND HOOKS HIS LEG IN FOR THE POTENTIAL PINFALL VICTORY RIGHT HERE!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!
Jake Mercer: NOPE! NICO BORG WAS ABLE TO GET HIS SHOULDER OFF OF THE CANVAS AND ECLIPSE DIEMOS NEEDS TO FIND ANOTHER WAY TO TAKE OUT MR. CASH IN THE VAULT! Eclipse stands on his feet and walks over towards the turnbuckle LOOKING TO PUT NICO AWAY WITH THE MOTHER’S PRAYER! HE… WAIT… HE’S MESSING WITH THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! HE JUST REMOVED THE PADDING FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS HE TAKES A STEP BACK TO MARVEL AT HIS ACTIONS! THIS COULD BE BAD FOR NICO IF HE DOESN’T DO SOMETHING SOON!
Stew-O: Eclipse Diemos turns around RIGHT INTO A DISCUS ELBOW STRIKE FROM NICO BORG BEFORE HE LIFTS ECLIPSE ON HIS SHOULDERS! He showcases an immense amount of strength to carry the large man towards the center of the ring HOOKING HIM BY THE BACK OF HIS NECK BEFORE HE DROPS HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH THE MALTESE CROSS! OVER-THE-SHOULDER BACK-TO-BELLY PILEDRIVER RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS AS NICO HOLDS HIM DOWN ON THE CANVAS FOR THE COUNT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Jake Mercer: WHAT? HE STILL CAN’T PUT HIM AWAY? ECLIPSE DIEMOS WAS ABLE TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN AND NICO BORG IS MET WITH A BIT OF DISBELIEF! The malicious nature of Eclipse Diemos to remove the turnbuckle pad in order to add more damage to Nico Borg could have cost him and made him fall victim to a Maltese Cross, but even that has proven to not be enough to put him down for the count! Nico grabs Eclipse and lifts him up to his feet BUT ECLIPSE HOOKS HIM OUT OF NOWHERE BY THE NECK! MOTHER’S PRAYER!
Stew-O: NOT SO FAST! NICO BORG IS ABLE TO SPIN OUT AND JUMP IN THE AIR FOR ANOTHER CRUCIFIX DRIVER STRAIGHT FROM EARLIER IN THIS MATCH! WAIT… ECLIPSE DIEMOS STANDS HIS GROUND WITH NICO HANGING FROM HIS BACK! Eclipse spins Nico back in front of him GRABBING HIM BY THE WAIST AS HE DROPS HIM DOWN WITH THE CHARGING SPINEBUSTER! ECLIPSE DIEMOS IS FEELING THE DARKNESS OF HIS HEART START TO CONSUME HIS MIND AND HE’S NOT EVEN ATTEMPTING TO GO FOR A PIN RIGHT NOW! He stands behind Nico and starts to roll his arm around LOOKING TO DROP HIM DOWN WITH A GLASGOW SMILE RIGHT HERE IN THE IC–
(“Crippled By Pizza” by Horse The Band interrupts on the speakers as you can see The Pizza Boy walking out with a steel chair and the EAW Answers World Championship around his waist as Eclipse’s attention is diverted towards the stage.)
Jake Mercer: THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION IS HERE? GET HIM OUT OF HERE! HE’S RUINING A PERFECTLY GOOD MAIN EVENT HERE TONIGHT! Eclipse Diemos is challenging him to get back into the ring BUT THE PIZZA BOY STOPS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAGE! What’s he doing? He opens the chair up and places it down before him as he walks over to sit down on it? Pizza Boy is telling his challenger for Territorial Invasion to go back to his match as Eclipse just simply chuckles as he turns around WHEN NICO GRABS HIM AND DRIVES HIS FACE RIGHT INTO THE EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE FROM EARLIER IN THE MATCH!
Stew-O: ECLIPSE DIEMOS STUMBLES AROUND DAZED FROM THE BLOW WHEN NICO BORG LIFTS HIM UP FROM BEHIND ON HIS SHOULDERS! THE STRENGTH THAT NICO HAS TO HAVE TO BE ABLE TO DO THIS WITH HIS SIZE IS JUST ASTOUNDING! NICO HOOKS HIS ARMS IN AND DROPS HIM BACK WITH THE MILVIAN BRIDGE! THE STRAIGHT-JACKET ELECTRIC CHAIR DROP SLAMS ECLIPSE INTO THE CANVAS AS HE BRIDGES FOR THE PIN AS THE NAME IMPLIES!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“You Want It Darker” by Leonard Cohen plays in the background when Nico Borg is returned his Cash in the Vault briefcase with The Pizza Boy still watching from the sidelines.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… NIICCCOOOOO BOORRRGGGGG!!!
Jake Mercer: MR. CASH IN THE VAULT DOES IT AGAIN AND REMAINS UNCONQUERED ON THE DYNASTY BRAND! Nico Borg has defeated the number one contender to the EAW Answers World Championship, with maybe a bit of help through the intervention of the world champion himself, but Nico has just showed the world that he’s on the path towards being the man around here!
Stew-O: I have to say, Nico has been quite the impressive performer, but you have to know that Eclipse Diemos would have won this match if it wasn’t for The Pizza Boy’s intervention. Eclipse had Nico ready to take a Glasgow Smile, but was distracted at the last minute by the champion to be able to fall victim to The Milvian Bridge! However, congratulations to him for taking the opportunity and running with it!
(Nico Borg looks over to see The Pizza Boy stand up as he holds the Cash in the Vault briefcase high in the air as Pizza Boy nods towards him in acknowledgement of what he has. Eclipse starts to pick himself up, looking to both men with evil intentions, as the show cuts to commercial break.)
(FINAL COMMERCIAL BREAK)
(The show returns from commercial break with both Sebastian Monroe and StarrStan already standing in the ring with Stew-O standing in the middle of the ring as security lines the outside.)
Stew-O: Ladies and gentlemen… we are here tonight to decide the final members of Team Monroe and Team Starr! Please welcome the co-General Managers of Dynasty, Sebastian Monroe and StarrStan!
Sebastian Monroe: For now. Dynasty will soon have one General Manager to stand at the helm of this brand and I’ve made sure that it will be. With that said, let me go ahead and announce the people that have already been placed onto Team Monroe! Introducing my team captain, the future EAW Answers World Champion and the man who SHOULD have defeated The Pizza Boy for that right… SCOTT OASIS!
(“The Wreckoning” by Nonpoint plays on the speakers with Scott Oasis walking out with jeans and an “The Ice Man Cometh” shirt on as he joins Monroe inside the ring.)
Sebastian Monroe: This man is a beast, a destroyer, and a monster in the ring that will be brought firsthand to you and your little team. Don’t worry, when we finally get rid of you, this man will be where he rightfully belongs and that’s at the top of the food chain around here. However, I would like to bring out the second person of my team and a man that you have screwed numerous times from being able to capture the EAW Hardcore Championship. Join me, people, in welcoming EAW Hall of Famer… LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!
(“Blackout” by Company Flow erupts from the speakers as Lethal Consequences walks out with a smirk on his face, holding his hands up in the air to goad the crowd, before he walks towards the ring to join his future partner.)
Sebastian Monroe: Starr, this man is of the same generation as you and what have you gifted this man with? Nothing! Just poor attempts to placate with his ego and you know what’s even worse? You’ve continued this trend with another elitist, making them have to go through so many hoops to be able to be crowned the EAW Hardcore Champion, and that’s why he decided of his own free will to be a part of my team and denied you. I introduce the third member of Team Monroe, the EAW Hardcore Champion, SCOTT DIAMOND!
(“Reminder” by Jay-Z plays on the speakers with Scott Diamond stepping out onto the stage with the fans turned against him as he walks down the ramp to join his team inside of the ring with a scowl made towards StarrStan.)
Sebastian Monroe: Man, this ring is getting filled up with my team, huh? Well, I have one last member that has been announced and that I need to bring out to the ring. Once again, this is a man that has denied you, but for different reasons. He has found that the legends of this business has been self-imposed with greed and vanity at the expense of this brand and has found that you, StarrStan, would only repeat the treacherous cycle that we’ve been avoiding ever since I took control of this brand. He’s a former world champion and an EAW Hall of Famer, now my fourth team member, please welcome… JACOB SENN!
(“S.O.A.R.” by Devour The Day erupts from the speakers as Jacob Senn steps out to the stage with a cold look in his eyes, wearing a black leather jacket and jeans with his hands in his pocket, walking down the ramp to join his team in the ring.)
Sebastian Monroe: At the moment, this is my team and make no worries that I have my final member waiting for me to let him know to come out here, but we both decided to make a spectacle of that and wait until all of our announced team has been brought out. So do these people a favor for the first time since you took the mantle of co-General Manager, hurry along with your team so we can get this ball rolling.
StarrStan: Well, I would happy to reveal to you and the rest of the world the team that will restore Dynasty to a point in which it hasn’t seen in YEARS! The first member is a man that you personally have decided not to invest in because he failed to bring the EAW Openweight Championship, thus you deemed him a failure. However, I see potential in him to become a real champion of this brand. Without further ado, please welcome to the ring… TARGET SMILES!
(“i” by Kendrick Lamar plays on the sound system with an excited Target Smiles rushing out to the stage, taking the reaction from the crowd in before he goes to the ring to join StarrStan, sliding in and standing beside him.)
StarrStan: This is something that you haven’t been able to do as a General Manager, Sebastian. You invest in something that you believe to be surefire thing with legends and former world champions, but I have invested in the future and who the fans are willing to pay to see! My next member was almost denied the opportunity to challenge for the Cash in the Vault case because of you and has been an afterthought to you because he doesn’t fit the style of performer that enthralls you! Introducing the second member of Team Starr, please welcome… AHREN FOURNIER!
(“Love, Sex, and Riot” by The Issues erupts from the speakers with Ahren Fournier walking out in a dashing suit, raising his eyebrows to taunt the lady audience in attendance, before he struts down the ring to join his team partner.)
StarrStan: This duo could be a phenomenal pairing itself, but the next entry has been a man that I find to be the next EAW Hardcore Champion! He embodies exactly what it means to be Hardcore and why I gave him the chance to earn a title opportunity against the champion you chose! So give it up to the Hardcore Invitational winner and the future champion himself… DARKANE!
(“Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus plays throughout The Ice Palace when Darkane walks out nonchalantly, not too enthusiastic about this appearance, as he walks down the ramp and makes his way into the ring to join Team Starr.)
Stew-O: Well, these are the current announced people for the Divide and Conquer Match for Territorial Invasion! With the stakes as high as they are and the way this match already looks, I can see that this will be a phenomenal match to call! However, we still need to know the remaining elitists that will take part in this match! So, since Team Starr still needs two more members in comparison to the one final Team Monroe member, StarrStan will bring out their fourth member! Starr…
StarrStan: Thank you, Stew. Now, I’m going to be quite honest with you, Sebastian. The person that I will bring out right now was a difficult person to not only have join our team, but to find in the first place. Discussions were made between the two of us and as of this moment right here, I’ve signed him to an exclusive Dynasty contract! Surprising, right? The question that I know you’re asking just like the people in attendance right now is who exactly did I sign? Well, why don’t you take a look?
(The arena goes pitch black… )
(“Met Gala” by Gucci Mane feat. Offset starts to play on the speakers in the darkness. Everyone is left in wonder about who this could be when the lights finally are turned on! They reveal a man with his back turned to the camera as he wears a large leather jacket with a tattered American flag symbol on it.)
Jake Mercer: Who has StarrStan signed off the streets to be a part of his team to try and dethrone Sebastian Monroe from his rightful place as Dynasty General Manager?
(The camera pans back to see a gleaming smile on the man’s face before he turns around… REVEALED TO BE TYLER PARKER! The crowd goes ballistic in cheers for his return as Tyler Parker walks down the ramp and calls for the crowd to liven up even more as he makes his way into the ring to join StarrStan at his side! Sebastian Monroe is left in awe with the majority of the team members by his side met with the same reaction.)
StarrStan: The fourth member of Team Starr is the former TWO-TIME World Heavyweight Champion, an EAW Hall of Famer, and one of the biggest names of this company as a whole… TYLER PARKER! While you were busy making your circle of friends over here, I went over to Georgia and met with Tyler, told him about what was going on and about him returning. Truth be told, he was itching to get back into the ring and only needed a reason. The bad thing for you, Sebastian, is that you’re the reason.
Sebastian Monroe: To be honest with you, Starr, I would be lying to you if I said I wasn’t impressed with this return that you were able to bring together. I mean, Tyler Parker! I’m glad that you were able to get this man to return with an exclusive contract to Dynasty because when I become the sole General Manager of this company, it would be good to reminisce with a star like him! However, since you had your big reveal, it’s time for me to announce my final member of Team Monroe. You talk about how I don’t invest in the future, Starr. You speak about how you’ve built this brand to be about the future, but this is a man that you’ve personally tried to REMOVE from being the future of this brand. He’s a man that is destined to be the next world champion of this industry and someone that was close to being derailed from that path because of you. He would LOVE to see you ousted because of it and when I gave him the chance to be the one to do so, he jumped at the opportunity no matter if he needed the title shot or not! Please, let me introduce the man that desires to be your doom… Mr. Cash In The Vault… NICO BORG!
(“You Want It Darker” by Leonard Cohen echoes throughout The Ice Palace as Nico Borg walks out in a fine tailored suit with his Cash in the Vault case in hand, walking towards the ring with a bright smile on his face, as he joins Team Monroe in the ring with an embrace to Sebastian Monroe.)
Sebastian Monroe: This man is the future that I have invested into, Starr. For Scott Oasis will reclaim his throne in the near future, but Nico Borg is the man that will be known as the future world champion because of the rich prize he has in his possession! However, here’s what I’ve noticed. You only have four members and with Tyler Parker in your corner, the way that you had to pull him into the equation, I don’t believe you have enough to compete. The question that I have for you since you had your grandiose moment for him, do you have a fifth competitor?
StarrStan: I do! My fifth competitor is… ME! I’m going to be the fif–
Sebastian Monroe: WHOA! WHOA! WHOA! Back it up a bit, Starr! There’s no way that I’m going to allow you to be in this match to represent yourself! Especially considering the retirement you had, EAW will not allow you to come back and ruin it because of your pride! Now, I’m going to give you a minute to call for your fifth member to join your team and if you don’t, then this will be a forfeit! With that being said, you will lose your position as General Manager tonight and all of this will have been for nothing. Who is your fifth member?
(StarrStan calls his team over and they begin to debate on the fifth member for their team and almost instantly, Sebastian Monroe has a smile of devious intent on his face.)
Sebastian Monroe: On second thought, I’ve thought about this. I have five team members in the ring, you have four team members in the ring, meaning that we outnumber this little crew of yours. So instead of me having to wait to get rid of you at Territorial Invasion, why don’t I get rid of all of you RIGHT NOW?
(Sebastian Monroe motions to his team to go in and attack StarrStan’s team, with all of team with the exception of Jacob Senn thrilled to join into the fight, with Senn just rolling his eyes as he gets involved. Stew-O evacuates the ring as the on-site security starts to slide into the ring to try and control this.)
Stew-O: Things are about get intense, Jake! There’s about to be an all-out brawl between these men right here in this ring!
Jake Mercer: I know right! This is going to be exciting! I can’t wait to see Team Monroe slaughter Team Starr before the match can eve–
(“I Am Electric” by Heaven’s Basement his the speakers with Nasir Moore rushing out with a steel chair in his hands as he sprints his way down the ramp. He starts to slide into the ring as Team Monroe evacuates and rolls out of the ring as the numbers have been squared up with Sebastian Monroe telling his men to stay back for the moment. Nasir grabs the microphone from StarrStan as he walks over to the ropes and leans on them with his eyes locked onto Sebastian Monroe.)
Nasir Moore: Monroe, let me tell you something. You may have banned me from competition in the EAW Answers World Championship division because of what happened with CM Banks at Dia Del Diablo, but that doesn’t mean I can’t put my name into this hat to defend the brand that I call home! You have been a disaster for this brand ever since your name has been attached to it and I don’t care who you have on your team, what type of match this is, or how many matches that I’ll have at Territorial Invasion! I don’t care if I have to wrestle CM Banks, Scott Oasis, Jacob Senn, Nico Borg OR THIS ENTIRE ROSTER AT TERRITORIAL INVASION! I’m going to make this simple for all of you. The final man to join Team Starr and to represent the person that will be known as the sole General Manager of Dynasty when this is all said and done… IS ME! Not only will I defend this brand and the General Manager it deserves, but I will be the next person in line for the EAW Answers World Championship IN SPITE OF YOU, MONROE! Get ready boys, because it’s real and the war has just started!
(Nasir Moore throws the microphone straight at Team Monroe on the outside, calling for them all to get in the ring and fight with the rest of his team, with both Sebastian Monroe and StarrStan start trading verbal blows with each other. The security team attempts to keep both teams contained and away from each other as the camera fades to black… )
