(“Salute” by Little Mix plays as Empire’s NEW intro plays, featuring the women of Revolt’s Freeweight division! The camera switches to a fireworks display inside the arena)
SG1: Welcome to Thursday Night Empire! I’m SG1 and this is my partner Gia Cervantes! We are here live in front of a sold out crowd in Taipei, Taiwan! We’re just two weeks away from Empire: Terminus!
Gia: That’s right! Just two weeks away from the Four Corners tag team match to determine the inaugural Empire Tag Team Champions! Without further ado, let’s get to it!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jasmine Peyton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(Chun Li by Nicki Minaj begins to play throughout the area as the crowd applauds.)
SG1: Oh I always love it when we get to cover a debut Gia and tonight we have two in the same match.
Gia: That’s right, everyone at home, you better be keeping your eyes on that screen; you could be looking at future champions in this match.
(As soon as NIcki Minaj begins to rap the first verse after “Ayo”, fireworks go off as Kianna Carter’s name appears on the screen in red lettering. With a large smile on her young face, Kianna bobs her head to the beat as her fuchsia curly locks bounce on her shoulder. Kianna turns around and shows her jacket that has her last name, “CARTER” displayed with red jewels around the border of the letters. She high-fives fans at ringside as she briefly stops before the steps to enter the ring. She begins to rap along and says “I been on.” along with Nicki Minaj as she brushes her feet and goes up the steps. She brushes her feet once more and goes inside of the ring.)
Jasmine Peyton: From Saratoga Springs, weighing in at 114lbs, KIAAANNNA, CAAAAAAARTER!
SG1: Kianna Carter looking for victory tonight in her Empire debut against a fellow rookie, Gia what can you tell us about this fresh prospect?
Gia: Two words for ya SG1; white sheep. Kianna here’s from the Carter Dynasty, charming bunch of greedy backstabbers. Had a chance to meet her myself backstage before this match and you’d never know she’s even related to ‘em.
(Kianna waves to the fans cheering as ‘Epic’ by Faith No More begins to play)
Jasmine Peyton: And her opponent, from Somserset, Kentucky, REMI SKYYYYFIRE!
(Remi strides out slowly onto the stage, one eye hidden behind an eyepatch while the other glares at Kianna, sizing her up as she slides into the ring)
SG1: Anything about our second debutant tonight Gia?
Gia: Tried to speak to her backstage before the match too.
SG1: How did that go?
Gia: Told me to keep my nose out of her business if I like it the shape it is
(DING DING DING)
Gia: Well here we go and- well alright then! Remi Skyfire wasting absolutely no time getting started here tonight as she leaps right on tip of Carter with a Thes Press, raining elbows down as Carter gets her arms up to protect her face from the vicious blows of Remi.
SG1: Remi looking to end this early here as Carter rolls, trying to reposition herself more favorably but to no avail as Remi simply rolls them completely over, still on top of Carter here and pinning her to the mat. OW! Vicious, cruel punches to the ribs of Carter now by Remi, firmly in control in the early goings here- OH but not for long, as Carter catches the next blow and plants a foot in Remi’s abodomen, modified monkey flip there to free herself from Remi’s beatdown.
Gia: It wasn’t pretty but it did the job, both women back to their feet now as Remi again looking to take Carter down to the mat with a double leg takedown this time, side stepped by Carter, beautiful dropkick there to Remi sending her staggering into the corner. Carter, gritting her teeth a little on those hurting ribs, backs up here, takes a run.
SG1: OOF! European Uppercut from a run, bouncing the back of Remi’s head right off the turnbuckles.
Gia: Kianna now, feet on the second rope as she stands over Remi, raining punches down on Remi in the corner now! Remi though, knocking all the wind out of Kianna there with a vicious headbutt to the gut there, pushing Kianna off of her. Remi goes for a clothesline on Kianna, Kianna ducks, Crucifix Roll Up!
SG1: Remi kicks out there, no chance of her falling to a roll up at this early stage, Kianna here trying to close the gap, both women now in the center of the ring trading vicious blows to every part of their opponent they can reach!
Gia: Remi catches Kianna’s arm and twists, ooh that’s gotta hurt, OW and so does that, Kianna yanked by her twisted arm right into a vicious headbutt by Remi Skyfire, and Remi’s not done here, holding Kianna up as she boots her backwards, armlock maintained and pulls her in for another brutal headbutt!
SG1: Kianna being kept standing only by that armlock of Remi here, she looks nearly out of it and it looks like Remi agrees here, she’s pushing Kianna back, looking for one more headbutt to seal the deal.
Gia: Headbut- NO, KIANNA SLIDES UNDER THE ATTEMPT! Armlock broken by Kianna Carter who is just pummeling Remi Skyfire here with boxing blows, face, chest, ear, chest, anywhere she can land a punch Kianna is looking to do so.
SG1: OOOOH, that last blow sending Remi right off her feet, Lights Out for Remi as Kianna goes for the cover again.
SG1: And Remi kicks out, throwing Kianna off and very wisely rolling out of the ring now to avoid any further punishment.
Gia: Maybe, but Kianna has bad intentions right here and the crowd can feel it… hopping from foot to foot here, don’t know if Remi knows it but Kianna, she about to fly!
SG1: Kianna runs to the ropes, bounces off, looking for the suicide di-
Gia: JESUS CHRIST! KUSHIDA TO KIANNA CARTER MID-SUICIDE DIVE! AS MUCH AS I HATE TO USE THE CLICHE, HOW ELSE DO YOU DESCRIBE THAT BUT OUT OF NOWHERE?
SG1: The Baseball Windup and swing, so fast if you blinked you would’ve missed it, before connecting that devestating punch to Kianna, she flew RIGHT into that awful blow, laid out now on the floor in front of us and Remi Skyfire, surely knows she has this won now as she picks up Kianna to roll her back in the ring.
(Remi drags Kianna to the side of the ring and, after grinning at the crowd, bounces Kianna’s face off the apron once before rolling he back inside)
Gia: Oh yeah, real classy there, totally necessary. Remi going for the pin here.
(‘Epic’ by Faith No More begins to play as Remi stomps once more on Kianna’s chest, standing atop her defeated foe as the crowd jeers and boos)
Gia: Well, the one thing you always want to do on debut is make a statement and I don’t think Remi Skyfire needs to make her intentions anymore clear.
SG1: Yeah, there’s a new kid on the block and the rest of Empire better be watching their backs.
(As Remi exits the ring and walks up the ramp she pauses at the sound of the crowd cheering; back inside the ring Kianna Carter, refusing the help of referee’s to get up, stands under her own power in the ring and points to Remi, mouthing “anytime, anywhere” at Skyfire)
Gia: She may have lost the match tonight SG1 but Kianna Carter is something else, to get up after a match like that and dare someone like Remi Skyfire to try it again sometime? That takes guts.
(Cori Simmons is shown sitting down with all three members of the Crowe’s Nest: Chelsea Crowe, April Song, and Jael Arcana-Rosario)
Cori: Hello, I’m Cori Simmons, backstage correspondent with EAW’s Empire brand. Here with me is the Crowe’s Nest. Hello ladies.
Chelsea: Good evening, Cori. I apologize for the cold shoulder my companions are giving, but it’s been a stressful couple of weeks for us.
Cori: Yes, of course. With April’s loss to Steph –
(April crosses her arms as she glares daggers at Cori)
Chelsea: Ixnay on the Ephaniestay Atsudamay ashcay-inway.
Cori: Oh. Right. Sorry. Well, Jael you had a match against the champion last week and –
(Jael glares at Cori.)
Chelsea: Ixnay on that too.
Cori: Uh –
Chelsea: Let me take over this interview, if you don’t mind?
Cori: Uh, go ahead.
Chelsea: Well I’m going to tell you what you’re thinking – the abomination known as your Women’s World Champion has unfairly embarrassed my sisters on two separate occasions. Several months ago, she made me tap out in the middle of that ring. This so-called “Iconic War Queen” is a festering cancer that needs to be eliminated once and for all. But, alas, business before pleasure. In two weeks my sisters will be the inaugural EAW Empire Tag Team Champions. I will successfully defend my EAW Specialist Championship against Revy in whatever crazy stipulation she decides to come up with. Then, we shall turn our attention to wiping Stephanie Matsuda from the face of the earth – just before Pain for Pride, whether she’s still champion or not. In a way, I hope she does defeat Madison Kaline…
(All three stablemates stand up)
Chelsea: So she can go the way of her best friend – the former Women’s World Champion.
(Chelsea chuckles and walks away with April and Jael. The camera lingers on Cori for a moment before fading out)

Jasmine Peyton: This match is scheduled for ONE FALL–
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Jasmine Peyton: Introducing first, the team of the “Killer Bee” April Song and “Our Lady of Sorrow” Jael Arcana-Rosario!
SG1: Now, here is my team to win the Four Corners Match to crown the Empire Tag Team Champions at Terminus! There is no other team there with the chemistry and perfect execution like The Crowe’s Nest!
Gia Cervantes: I think the last thing Empire needs are for these women to get the gold! We cannot let Empire get into the power of these three.
(“Chasing After” — Tartanic plays as the crowd cheers for REVOLT Freeweight and new Empire signee, “Rad” Riley McCray comes out in her skateboard with a huge grin on her face.)

(“Roll With Me” — Charli XCX plays as the crowd gives a MASSIVE pop for Andrea Valentine who comes out pointing at both sides around her and kissing the crowd.)
Jasmine Peyton: Introducing her partner from, Orlando, Florida, she is “The Heart of Empire”, ANDREAAAAAAAAA VALLLENNNNNNTINEEEEEEE!!
Gia Cervantes: Here is one of my favorites for the Empire Tag Team Championship Four Corners Match! What is not to love about Andrea Valentine? She gives it everything she has. She’s a hard worker and she is just as lovable as they come!
SG1: They are not the favorites approaching this match right now, Gia. They are getting in the nest with crows.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gia Cervantes: This tag team match is underway as the wildcard team of Riley McCray and Andrea Valentine try their luck against April Song and Jael Arcana-Rosario of The Crowe’s Nest! April is getting to her corner as it looks like Jael will be starting the match off for her team. Meanwhile, after some convincing from Andrea, Riley will be starting the match for her team! The two women circle around each other. Riley tries to extend her hand out; however, she backs it away as both women continue circling around one another, not wanting to make the first move of this tag match. The two women lock up as Jael manages to use all of her strength to push Riley into corner! With the pressure still on Riley, Jesse Carlton begins her count!
Jesse Carlton: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIV–
SG1: Jael gives a grimace before distancing herself away, making sure that Jesse can see her hands where they are!

Jesse Carlton: Go easy on her, Jael!
(As Jesse Carlton is lecturing to Jael Arcana-Rosario, April Song delivers a couple of stomps towards Riley’s head as the crowd boos in the process.)
Gia Cervantes: What cheating efforts from The Crowe’s Nest! This is what they are so good at doing! They are good with isolating their opponents and going behind the official’s back with these little shots! Andrea Valentine is at her corner, telling Jesse to turn around and see what April is doing, but as soon as Jesse turns around, April acts like she’s done nothing wrong! Jael slowly goes to her corner and tags in April Song into the match up! Jael takes April’s spot in the corner as April picks up Riley and stretches her leg onto Riley’s neck, making sure her boot is pressed right onto her neck! Riley is seen being lifted off the ground and April stretches her leg onto Riley’s neck!

SG1: April with an elbow shot to Riley’s neck as Riley clutches to the corner! April flips Riley over and connects with a shoot kick onto Riley’s back! April goes to the side ropes, bounces and connects with a low dropkick directly at Riley’s face before going for a cover!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOO–
SG1: Riley kicks out as Andrea is applauding her partner from their corner! April grabs Riley and places her knee on Riley’s back. She grabs both of Riley’s arms as she stretches it back as Riley cries out in pain! April continues to apply pressure onto her hold as Riley begins to stomp her foot in a rhythmic fashion, trying to get the crowd behind her!
Crowd: LET’S GO, RILEY!
Also Crowd: F— THE CROWE’S NEST!
Gia Cervantes: There is no love loss with The Crowe’s Nest as this crowd has shown to be full behind Andrea and Riley! Jesse Carlton is asking if Riley wants to submit to April. April is a submission specialist and getting victories via submission has become second nature for her! Riley is shaking her head no. She is refuse to quit as Riley is finding for some way to get up and counter this move! She can also look for someway to get her feet on the ropes, but it should be quite interesting to see with what she goes with! Wait! Riley is able to flip herself up and Riley with a hurricanrana driver! April Song goes planting face first on the ground! Riley McCray kips up and gets the crowd hyped up! Riley scouts April and connects with a butterfly suplex! Riley gets April up and connects with a switchblade kick. April bends forward as she holds her stomach in pain before Riley flies onto April’s back and connects with a sunset flip!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOO!!
SG1: April kicks out! There was no way April was going to lose the match there! Riley with a snapmare on April. Riley bounces to the side ropes and connects with a low dropkick to April’s face! Riley is bouncing around in the ring as the crowd is cheering! Riley scouts for April, who is almost getting back up! Riley with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker! April Song is getting out shown by this REVOLT Freeweight! This is the reason why “Rad” Riley McCray is one of the watched Freeweights we have on Empire now! April is wobbly on her feet! Riley with a sit down jawbreaker as April goes back first against the mat like a bobble head!
Gia Cervantes: Andrea Valentine has her hand extend to Riley! There is nothing she would like more than to get into the match and beat the hell out of The Crowe’s Nest, who she has had her issues with these last few weeks! Riley tags in Andrea! The crowd is on fire as April manages to tag in Jael Arcana-Rosario back into the match!

Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!
Gia Cervantes: “RAD” RILEY MCCRAY BREAKS UP THE PIN JUST IN TIME AS JAEL ENTERS BACK INTO THE RING TO TAKE RILEY OUT OF THE EQUATION! RILEY QUICKLY GETS TO HER OWN CORNER AS JESSE TELLS JAEL TO GET BACK TO HERS! ANDREA IS SHOWING SLOWLY TRYING TO CRAWL TO RILEY!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Glory and Gore” plays as Jael Arcana-Rosario gets up and dusts her hands off as April Song smirks and rolls back into the ring. Andrea Valentine is shown holding her shoulder as she has her back against the barricade with disappointment in her eyes.)
Jasmine Peyton: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH, APRIL SONG AND JAEL ARCANA-ROSARIO, THE CROWE’S NESSSSSSSSSSSSSSST!!
Gia Cervantes: Jael Arcana-Rosario and April Song proving once again that they are the stronger team! The Goto Sisters, Jaded Hearts and the assembly with Consuela Rose Ava and Andrea Valentine should worry about this time right here!
SG1: If The Crowe’s Nest can continue being a strong team as they were here, we could be looking at our first Empire Tag Team Champions.
(Stephanie Matsuda is seen walking backstage dressed in a leather jacket and aviator shades with her Women’s World Championship over her shoulders. She pauses for a moment when she sees Revolt Freeweight Champion Sienna Jade with her belt over her shoulder.)
Sienna: I take it you’re the one true champion of Empire?
Stephanie: You could say that.
(Sienna smiles and rubs her title)
Sienna: You can rest easy now. I’m here to take the responsibility off your shoulders.
(Stephanie pauses for a moment and smiles)
Stephanie: Heavy is the head that wears the crown, sweets. Good thing I have a strong neck. I appreciate your offer, but no thanks.
Sienna: Wow, you act like you have a choice! There’s a reason why EAW brought us Freeweights in…
(Sienna raises her title)
Sienna: To show you skanks how it’s done.
(EAW Specialist Champion, Chelsea Crowe walks into view with her respective belt over her shoulders. She ignores Sienna for the moment as she stares at Stephanie Matsuda.)
Chelsea: When we get to Japan, I suggest you stay there. From what I hear – your office at JET headquarters is quite comfortable.
(Stephanie’s face turns from amusement to dead serious.)
Stephanie: And if I was you Chelsea, I’d not come to Japan at all.
(Cloud looks at Sienna)
Stephanie: As for you sweets? Welcome to MY Empire.
(Stephanie walks away, leaving Sienna and Chelsea to glare in her direction.)

(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Stars in the Night” by CFO$ plays over the arena and Raven Roberts emerges from the back decked out with midnight blue wings, she puts her hands on her hips soaking in the cheers of the Taipei Arena and begins to gracefully walk to the ring.)
Jasmine Peyton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall, introducing first, originally from Louisville, Kentucky now residing in Las Vegas, Nevada weighing in at 6’1″ 151 pounds, she is the Bird of Preyyyyyyyy……. RAVENNNNNNNNNNN ROBBBBBBBBBERRRRRRRTTTTTTTTTTTTTSSSS!!
SG1: Certainly an intriguing contest between two bright young superstars, you can’t help but notice that certain.. vigor that Raven carries with her everytime she steps out into the ring.
Gia: Well she’s got her work cut out for her that’s for sure, you said it though, this is an intriguing contest no doubt!
“Azure Sky” by zakkii echoes through the arena and the crowd comes unglued, out comes Zakkii, she smiles brightly and points to the crowd before heading down the ramp.
Jasmine Peyton: Introducing her opponent, from Kyoto, Japan weighing in at 5’9″ 110 pounds… ZZZZZZZZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!
SG1: Our resident Japanese pop star as you can see is making her way towards the ring! Last week she announced her retirement but was abruptly interrupted by Stella Star.
Gia: Stella didn’t seem too impressed by Zakkii and then continued on to berate her, but nonetheless Empire and EAW as a whole won’t be the same without Zakkii!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gia: AND WE’RE OFF! This should be an interesting contrast of styles SG1, as Zakkii and Raven both lock up in the center of the ring but Raven quickly overpowers and shoves Zakkii down with all of her 6’1″ frame!
SG1: I’m not sure if that was such a good idea by Zakkii there, but she won’t give in! She charges towards Raven… and is met by a HUGE BIG BOOT from The Bird of Prey herself, Raven! That just flattened Zakkii!
Gia: The ever so elegant yet dangerous Raven swiftly picks up Zakkii over her shoulders as if she were a small child! But Zakkii kicks her legs and lands behind Raven! Zakkii plants a couple of stiff forearms to the back of Raven but they don’t seem to have much of an effect!
SG1: Raven turns around but Zakkii is already running towards the ropes! Raven goes for another big boot but Zakkii slides right under the outstretched leg! Raven turns around again and is met with a scintillating corkscrew dropkick which only drops Raven to a knee!
Gia: Zakkii bolts towards the ropes again.. SHINING WIZARD! That drops Raven onto her back! Zakkii smiles and points to the top rope! Could she be signaling the end here?! Zakkii steps through the ropes and ascends the turnbuckle, she takes a deep breath and eyes the crowd for a bit… BIG MISTAKE!
SG1: DID YOU HEAR THAT THUD?! Raven just threw Zakkii halfway across the ring with that military press slam off of the top rope! Zakkii is arching her back in agony and who could blame her?! Raven approaches Zakkii and picks her up and Irish whips her into the turnbuckle that Zakkii was previously on!
Gia: Raven effortlessly charges towards Zakkii, but is met by a pair of boots! Zakkii quickly hops up on the second rope and leaps!
SG1: TORNADO DDT! THAT JUST DROPPED RAVEN ON HER HEAD! Zakkii goes for the cover!
Gia: RAVEN POWERS OUT AT TWO WITH AUTHORITY! She just sent Zakkii about three feet in the air with that kick out! They both get to their feet and Zakkii goes for a right hook but that’s blocked! Raven tries to reply with a right hand of her own but that is thwarted by Zakkii who drills Raven with a palm strike to the bridge of the nose!
SG1: This is followed up by a succession of rapid punches and OH DID YOU HEAR THAT OPEN HAND SLAP! She calls that the Dance Floor Shredder! BUT SHE ISN’T DONE! SHE JUST SENT RAVEN ROBERTS ON A ONE WAY TRIP DOWN DREAM STREET WITH HER SIGNATURE MOVE, LAPIS LAZULI, AN IMPRESSIVE TORNADO ROUNDHOUSE KICK WHICH DROPS RAVEN! Such fierce strikes from Zakkii! Raven is crawling on all fours towards the corner, perhaps trying to buy some time! Wait a second.. WHAT IS SHE DOING HERE?! Stella Star?!
Gia: Calm down I’m sure she just wants a better view..
SG1: I don’t know about that Gia, she’s probably up to no good.
Gia: Meanwhile, Raven doesn’t look to be in that good of shape SG1 and Zakkii is wasting little time now! Hold on! Zakkii notices Stella on the outside, staring a hole through her out of the corner of her eye! Zakkii has a bewildered look on her face and tilts her head, she then readjusts her focus and goes to pull Raven up but Raven sweeps the hands out from under Zakkii and lands a stiff clothesline knocking Zakkii down! Zakkii attempts to immediately get up but that clothesline really knocked her for a loop! Raven gives Zakkii a dose of her own medicine with a hard spinning backhand slap that twists Zakkii like a slinky in mid-air! Raven plants of a few clubbing blows on the back of Zakkii!
SG1: It looks like the presence of Stella distracted Zakkii there, meanwhile, Raven hooks the legs of the downed Zakkii who is trying to twist and flip Raven over onto her back, but that’s not going to work! Raven flips over Zakkii, drops down and locks in the Boston Crab! Right in the center of the ring with nowhere to go and she’s using all of her weight to press down on the small of Zakkii’s back which Raven had been working over for the past few minutes!
Ref: What do you say Zakkii?
Gia: Zakkii is in too much pain to speak! She just shakes her head no! Raven screams and pulls back as hard as she can but Zakkii is determined to get to those ropes!!! She’s inching closer.. and…
SG1: SHE’S GOT THEM! The ref taps Raven on the shoulder to inform her of the bad news that Zakkii broke the hold! Raven looks back and grumbles to herself! Meanwhile, Zakkii slides under the bottom rope and hops to her feet on the apron! She launches herself into the mid-section of Raven with a vicious shoulder thrust which sends Raven back and drops her to a knee again! Zakkii uses the ropes to propel herself as she leaps off of the top!!!
Gia: OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SG1: WHAT IMPACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gia: A BEAUTIFUL HUNTRESS BOMB BY RAVEN ROBERTS! A SITOUT SPINEBUSTER THAT SHOOK THE WHOLE RING! SHE CAUGHT ZAKKII IN MIDAIR WITH SUCH GRACE AND POWERED HER DOWN WITH EASE! SHE PINS ZAKKII FROM HER SITTING POSITION!
Gia: KICKOUT! KICKOUT! ZAKKII JUST BARELY SHOT HER SHOULDER UP! I DON’T BELIEVE IT! I WAS SURE THAT WOULD PUT HER AWAY! THIS TAIWANESE CROWD ROARS IN APPROVAL!
SG1: Never doubt the resilience of Zakkii! Raven is beside herself! Zakkii is still out of it! Raven lifts Zakkii up and holds her up by her limp bod– ENZIGURI! DID YOU HEAR THAT?! OUT OF NOWHERE! I THINK ZAKKII WAS PLAYING POSSUM! GREAT VETERAN INSTINCTS BY ZAKKII! Raven is stunned but still on her feet! Zakkii dashes towards Raven and plants her with a beautiful wheelbarrow bulldog! Zakkii then bounces off the ropes and connects with a running dropkick to the side of Raven’s face!
Gia: Raven is rolling around on the ground, clutching at her jaw! Zakkii is sizing her up from a distance.. waiting for Raven to stand and she does! Zakkii bolts towards Raven as if she were shot out of a cannon BUT SHE’S CAUGHT! AN OVER THE HEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX WHICH JUST SENT ZAKKII OVER THE TOP ROPE!! DID YOU SEE THE WAY ZAKKII’S BODY CONTORTED AGAINST THE APRON?! LET’S LOOK AT THE INSTANT REPLAY..
SG1: THAT WAS BRUTAL! AND IF OUR CAMERA CREW CAN SLOW IT DOWN, YOU CAN SEE THAT SHE LANDED FACE FIRST ONTO THE UNFORGIVING MAT! SHE MIGHT HAVE LOST A CHICKLET OR TWO! The ref has slid outside to check on Zakkii, but Zakkii refuses help and pushes him away! I think she’s got a busted lip, meanwhile, Raven slides out of the ring sensing that Zakkii is in deep trouble, Raven methodically attempts to pick Zakkii up.. but Zakkii still has some fight left in her yet! A succession of rapid punches and kicks to the calf muscle by Zakkii!
Gia: But Raven manages to quickly drive a powerful knee into the mid-section of Zakkii, perhaps the strikes administered by Zakkii have lost some of their power due to the toll this match has taken on her and Raven for that matter! The Bird of Prey herself rolls Zakkii back into the ring as she follows suit. I think Raven is signaling the end here.. she raises her hand in the air, the crowd 50/50 down the middle with Lets go Raven/Lets go Zakkii chants in the background! Raven spins her body around and she goes for… THE FACELIFT! THE SPINNING HEEL KIC–
SG1: MISSES! ZAKKII MANAGED TO ROLL FORWARD AND THROUGH! SHE USES HER MOMENTUM TO BOUNCE OFF THE ROPES AND SHE CHARGES BACK TOWARDS RAVEN.. WHO TURNS AROUND, OH MAN! A SPINNING BACKHAND SLAP BY RAVEN STUNS ZAKKII WHO STANDS ON WOBBLY LEGS!! RAVEN PUTS A STIFF BOOT INTO THE MID-SECTION OF ZAKKII AND NAILS A DDT, SPIKING ZAKKII’S HEAD OFF OF THE MAT! THIS COULD BE IT! SHE HOOKS THE LEGS OF ZAKKII!
Gia: ANOTHER KICKOUT BY ZAKKII AT THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT! PERHAPS ON INSTINCT ALONE, SHE IS SHOWING INCREDIBLE HEART HERE! RAVEN SLAMS THE MAT IN DISBELIEF! Meanwhile, Stella shakes her head in disgust on the outside! Raven grabs Zakkii and pulls her in for another belly to belly, BUT IS BLOCKED BY ANOTHER OPEN PALM THRUST TO THE NOSE OF RAVEN WHICH JOLTS HER BACK FROM THE SHEER IMPACT!
SG1: ZAKKI DARTS TOWARDS RAVEN AND IS COUNTERED WITH A HIP TOSS… BUT ZAKKII LANDS ON HER FEET!! WOW, WHAT ATHLETICISM SHOWN BY ZAKKII! SHE QUICKLY DRIVES A BOOT INTO RAVEN’S MID-SECTION… SHE HOOKS RAVEN’S HEAD AND CHARGES TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE… AND CONNECTS WITH THE CRESCENDO!!! HEY WAIT A SECOND, STELLA JUST HOPPED ONTO THE APRON, SHE’S WAVING HER ARMS AND DISTRACTING THE REFEREE!
Gia: ZAKKII WAS ABOUT TO CLIMB THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, BUT I THINK SHE NOTICES STELLA, ZAKKII APPROACHES STELLA AND MOUTHS “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” BUT STELLA DROPS FROM THE APRON AS ZAKKII SHAKES HER HEAD AND TURNS AROUND! RAVEN IS UP NOW AND DRIVES A KNEE INTO THE ABDOMEN OF ZAKKII, RAVEN HOISTS HER HIGH IN THE AIR! OH MY GOD!
SG1: LOST BEAUTY!!!!! THAT HESITATION BRAINBUSTER JUST CRUSHED THE HEAD AND NECK OF ZAKKII LIKE A GRAPE! NOT LIKE THIS DAMNIT! SHE DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS THE LEG..
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Stars in the Night” by CFO$ replays over the arena as Raven raises her hands in the air, but suddenly cocks her head as she sees Stella Star backing up the rampway, laughing.)
Gia: ZAKKII WAS ROBBED!
SG1: And I think the realization has just dawned on Raven Roberts. She’s looking at the replay up on the titantron and she’s not happy, to say the least.. She’s standing on the middle rope screaming obscenities at Stella Star from a distance but the damage has already been done. Raven thought she beat Zakkii fair and square.
(Raven kicks the bottom rope and shakes her head, visibly frustrated, before sliding out of the ring and slamming a closed fist on the top of the apron, while the referee tends to Zakkii who is still motionless in the ring.)
(Empire GM Flannery McCoy is shown sitting in her office when there’s a knock on the door)
Flannery McCoy: Come in.
(Revy opens the door, walking into the office, carrying bullrope over her shoulders. She sits before Flannery and places her feet on the table)
Revy: Howdy Boss.
Flannery: Feet off the table please.
Flannery: (takes off her glasses) So, what can I do for you?
Revy: Well, I want to talk to you about the stipulation I picked for Terminus.
(Flannery looks at the bullrope)
Flannery: Go on…
Revy: Well while I was pondering how I’m going to kick Ms. Hot Topic’s ass, I remember the days my brother Moongoose and I used to watch old Dallas Sportatorium matches my uncle taped from back in the day. There was this one match that stood out…
(Revy pats the bullrope)
Revy: A bullrope match. The rules may seem complex at first – taking your opponent around the four corners of this ring consecutively to win the match – but there was always the option of a successful pinfall…
(Revy grins and shakes her head)
Revy: I want that option removed. I want to drag Chelsea’s spoiled ass all across this ring with this very bullrope I’m holding. This was the same rope that won men championships. See that cowbell in the middle? There’s a small stain on there – another man’s blood from 1989 to be exact. Chelsea’s blood will be added to that bell and I’m going to drag that bitch to the four corners of the earth.
Flannery: Noted. I never seen a bullrope match, but I’ll do my reserach.
(Revy stands up)
Revy: See you next week. We got like a press conference or something?
Revy: Hehehe. Good to know.
(Revy walks out of the room with a satisfied smile on her face)
(Commercial Break – “NOT League of Legends” a brand NEW and ORIGINAL Chinese MOBA created by LarswithCars Games!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Chase” by Batta plays as Azumi and Sakuya Goto walk out to a standing ovation)
Jasmine Peyton: The following two matches are scheduled for one fall each and are tonight’s main events! First, making their way to the ring! Azumi and Sakuya…The Goto Sisters!
SG1: Welcome back to Empire as we have a unique situation for tonight’s main event – two separate matches featuring members of two of the teams competing for the Empire Tag Team Championships at Empire: Terminus! We have Sakuya competing against Kassidy Heart and then Azumi Goto facing off against Sienna Jade!
Gia: This will be an interesting preview for Terminus. The Jaded Hearts made their feelings known about the Goto Sisters and vice versa. This should be an interesting couple of matches.
SG1: Later on, we’ll be joined by Payton Darkstar and Astraea Jordan who will be keeping an eye on their opponent at Terminus for the Freeweight Championship, Sienna Jade!
(Sakuya climbs into the ring with Azumi standing ringside.”Resurge” by Gone is Gone plays as the Jaded Hearts – Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart walks out, hand-in-hand.)
Jasmine: They’re opponents! Sienna Jade! Kassidy Heart! The Jaded Hearts!
(Azumi glares at the duo who rolls their eyes as they pass her by. Kassidy slides into the ring while Sienna waits ringside.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: Jesse Carlton calls for the bell and this match is underway! Sakuya and Kassidy lock horns! Sakuya tries to get an advantage, but Kassidy has both size and strength on her side, pushing the small pirate backwards! Sakuya is still on her feet and marches towards Kassidy, pounding her chest! The fans seem to be on Goto’s side who’s standing face to face with her opponent!
Gia: I understand how angry Sakuya is at the moment. All week the Jaded Hearts took potshots at them, mainly directed at their heritage. Judging by where we are tonight, the audience isn’t amused either! Sienna’s laughing at her partner’s opposition ringside, urging Kassidy to squash Sakuya like a bug! Azumi’s hitting the mat, encouraging for her sister to fight back – OH! SAKUYA GOTO JUST SLAPPED KASSIDY ACROSS THE FACE! Wow! I never knew everyone’s favorite pirate princess had such a mean streak! Kassidy’s holding her face in shock. Surprise soon turns to rage as she grabs Sakuya by the neck and pushes her against the ropes! The ref is beginning her count!
Ref: One! Two! Three!
Gia: Kassidy breaks the hold and RETURNS THE FAVOR WITH AN OPEN PALM ACROSS THE CHEEK! SAKUYA ALMOST FELL THROUGH THE ROPES FROM THE IMPACT! OUCH!
SG1: Jesse Carlton is backing Kassidy to the center of the ring to give Sakuya some breathing room! Goto bursts from the ropes and HITS A JUMPING LARIAT! Sienna Jade is crying foul play! The ref is doing her best to ignore the Freeweight champ’s yelling as she keeps her focus on the match at hand! Sakuya follows up with the standing leg drop! She makes the cover-
SG1: Kassidy kicks out with ease!
Gia: Sakuya’s gamble didn’t go all the way, but the pirate seems more focused on weakening Kassidy than anything else as she applies a modified seated surfboard stretch! Ooo! Kassidy’s body is stretched to the limit as Sakuya pushes both feet against her opponent’s back!
SG1: Goto is taking things down a notch and is weakening the back of Kassidy’s back and arms, which would weaken her half of her offensive, including her Figure-Eight signature which relies on Kassidy arching her back for increased effectiveness.
Gia: Sakuya breaks the hold and hits the ropes – SAKUYA MISSES THE ANCHOR DROP DOUBLE STOMP! Kassidy scrambles to her feet – SHOOT KICK UPSIDE SAKUYA’S HEAD AND THE PIRATE GOES DOWN! Sienna’s giving advice ringside to Kassidy who’s laughing at the upset audience! Sakuya gets to her hands and knees – shining wizard by Kassidy! She makes the pin!
SG1: Goto kicks out! Kassidy definitely seems disappointed by this outcome! She has her hands on her hips, wondering what to do next! She its Sakuya up and applies a reverse chinlock! You know, Kassidy’s grappling abilities are underestimated, Don’t let the Mean Girls reenactment fool you – she and Sienna are very well traveled combatants. She picks up Sakuya and whips her to the ropes! Kassidy slides under Sakuya and flips her over into a surprise Boston Crab! Sakuya’s panicking! Kassidy has the crab locked as she pulls back, folding her body in half! Azumi’s trying to encourage her sister to fight out of it! Kassidy has her dead to rights in the middle of the ring! Sakuya is trying to use everything in her power to crawl to the ropes! She’s making little progress, but Kassidy isn’t making it easy for her! Sakuya is reaching for the ropes, the one thing that will get her out of her current predicament!
Gia: Sienna runs over to where Sakuya is and is grabbing her hands! Referee Jesse Carlton doesn’t see it, but Sienna is preventing Sakuya from touching the ropes! Azumi catches wind of it and runs over to her sister’s rescue, causing Sienna to flee the scene! She did it! Sakuya reached the ropes!
Ref: One! Two! Three! Four!
SG1: Kassidy Heart is forced to let go of the hold! Sakuya now has fighting chance – but for how long? Kassidy applies the waistlock and DEADLIFTS SAKUYA INTO THE AIR! GERMAN SUPLEX! SHE STILL HAS THE PIRATE PRINCESS IN HER GRASP! SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX! SHE’S IN KASSPLODER PLEX TERRITORY AS SHE GOES FOR A THIRD SUPLEX! SHE SUCCEEDS! SHE ARCHES HER BACK FOR THE BRIDGING PIN!
Gia: Sakuya gets the shoulder up! Kassidy can’t believe it! She’s having a tantrum in the middle of the ring! Sakuya pulls her into a roll-up!
Gia: Kassidy kicks out! Sakuya struggles to her feet, but Kassidy is faster! Sakuya ducks the roundhouse and COUNTERS WITH A URAKEN! Kassidy is laid out by the spinning backfist! The Front Pacific Voyager has a wild look in her eye! She runs over to the corner and climbs to the top! Kassidy is still stunned! Sakuya could end this early with an Avast diving elbow drop! Wait! Kassidy is on the apron! She’s yelling at Sakuya! Goto is telling her to get down!
SG1: Sakuya needs to focus on the match and NOT her opponent! Azumi chases after Sienna again! Sienna runs on the apron and jumps off! What!? The ref didn’t see her PUSH SAKUYA AS SHE JUMPED OFF! Sakuya lands on her feet and holds on to the ropes in the – P.C.S. KICK! KASSIDY OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE RUNNING BIG BOOT! SAKUYA’S HEAD HITS THE TURNBUCKLE AND SHE GOES DOWN! KASSIDY GRABS HER LEG! SHE LOCKS IN THE HEEL HOOK!
Crowd: KASSI! KASSI! KASSI! OI! OI! OI!
SG1: SAKUYA TAPS! SHE TAPS!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Confident” by Demi Lovato plays as Kassidy lets go of the hold and rolls on to her knees. Sienna Jade slides into the ring as Azumi checks on her sister from ringside)
Jasmine: Your winner by submission, Kassidy Heart!
SG1: Through well-coordinated tactics, one-half of the Jaded Hearts has pulled the upset victory! Through a submission no less!
Gia: As much as I want to be surprised by this, I’m not. Kassidy is an accomplished submission specialist – all she needed was an opening, and unfortunately Sienna Jade created that moment!
SG1: Well next we’re going to have Azumi Goto squaring off against Sienna Jade in the second half of this co-main event! We’re also going to have Payton Darkstar and Astraea Jordan ringside! Stay tuned!
(The scene fades into a montage of REVOLT’s Freeweight Division kicking ass and looking good. In the montage you see women like Payton Darkstar, Stella Star, Raven Roberts, Layla Lockhart “Rad” Riley McCray, Kassidy Heart and our Freeweight Champion, Sienna Jade making an impact on REVOLT.)
Question: What is your name and where do you reside?
(Scene transitions to Raven Roberts standing in confessionals with a smile on her face.)
Raven Roberts: I’m Raven Roberts and I’m from Las Vegas, Nevada.
(Scene then goes to Layla Lockhart with a bubbly smile across her face.)
Layla Lockhart: My name is Layla Lockhart and I’m from Orlando, Florida.
(Camera pans to Stella Star.)
Stella Star: Everyone should know my name because I’m a motherf—ing star! I’m Stella Star and I’m from Los Angeles, California.
(Camera pans to Payton Darkstar with an eccentric aura around her.)
Payton Darkstar: Greeting, earthlings! My name is Payton Darkstar and I’m from outta this world!
(Camera goes to Kassidy Heart, with almost a snobby look on her face.)
Kassidy Heart: My name is Kassidy Heart and I’m from Sydney, Australia.
(Camera goes to “Rad” Riley McCray sitting all casual as she is blowing her pink bubblegum.)
“Rad” Riley McCray: Name’s “Rad” Riley McCray and I’m from Trenton, New Jersey.
(Camera lastly goes to Sienna Jade with the Freeweight Championship on her shoulder.)
Sienna Jade: I’m Sienna Jade, YOUR Freeweight Champion and I am from San Diego, California.
Question:What is one adjective to describe you?
Raven Roberts: Easy, Ravenous. No pun intended.
Layla Lockhart (smiling): What is one word to describe me? Hmmm..bubbly!
Stella Star: Isn’t it obvious? Star, duh!
Payton Darkstar: Eccentric, I suppose? I’ve been hearing that word around ever since I joined.
Kassidy Heart: Are you expecting me to say “heart”? Please! Let’s go with bitch.
“Rad” Riley McCray (thinks): Hmmm…this is a tough question.
(Camera pans to her entire upper half that it shows her snapback with the word “RAD” on it.)
“Rad” Riley McCray: Oh! I know (pulls her hat off her head and shows it to the side of her as she points at the word “RAD”)! RAD!
Sienna Jade: One word: obsessed. Obsessed with power, fame and fortune. I want it all to be mine.
Question: What is something you want the EAW Universe and Female Elitists to know about you?
Raven Roberts: I may be a bird, but I am not afraid to ruffle a few feathers in order to get what I want. It’s not a cliche thing to say, it something that will be relevant over time. Also, I want to prove to everyone that you can fight for everything you want and look beautiful doing it. There is no one or the other. You can do both and be successful.
Layla Lockhart: I want them to know that we can be in a building that is on fire and I will still have the most optimistic outlook on life. By working with children, I have done my best with trying to give them a positive attitude and that’s all I can hope the EAW Universe can have when seeing me!
Stella Star: That I’m better than all the females in the back! The moment I am focused on winning, it will be the worst thing ever…for my opponents! There is no way you can stop be when I’m determined to win and they will soon figure that out for themselves!
Payton Darkstar: That I am really an alien from outer space. People may look at me like I bumped my head too many times in the ring, but if they want proof, they can see my spaceship if they want too.
Kassidy Heart: I’m kinda mean. The rest of the women aren’t going to love me, but their boyfriends will.
“Rad” Riley McCray: All they need to know is that I’m not Sienna, but that doesn’t mean I’m another Layla. I’m “Rad” Riley McCray and I dance to the beat of my own drum. I go against the status quo and I look pretty rad as I do so.
Sienna Jade: That as long as I’m Freeweight Champion, you should respect the champion. This isn’t some cute motto found in a bubble gum wrapper. It’s something that you should already know. I was a big deal in REVOLT and I am going to be a bigger deal on Empire! I’ll run through your heros and make them trumble beneath my feet.
Question: Thoughts on the Empire Elitist?
Raven Roberts: I think they are going to push me to the next level. They are going to be what I need in order to better myself and get to the top of Empire!
Layla Lockhart: There’s a few girls who seem like complete sweethearts, but haven’t had a chance to converse with them. I hope to cross paths at some point with them!
Stella Star: Zakkii seems like a bitch! I haven’t really interacted with any of the other girls. Let’s hope that I don’t because I don’t talk or work well with others. I’m not here to make any friends. I am here to collect titles and win!
Payton Darkstar: I’ve met Azumi, Sakuya and Zakkii and they all seemed nice! Sakuya told me that she will show me her pirate ship when we go to Japan and I am ecstatic to actually see a pirate and their own pirate ship!
Kassidy Heart: I don’t care about the other women. The only one I care about is my best friend, Sienna. Anyone that hurts her is going to mess with me after.
“Rad” Riley McCray: Hey, as long as they don’t got any beef with me, it’s all good! I’m just here to win and have fun! That’s all the part of the game! Although, if we do got beef, well…good luck with losing your extensions. I’m snatching you all bald.
Sienna Jade: The other women got nothing on me! The only one who could come close would be Kassidy. I only love my Kassidy and my title, I am sorry.
(Video footage ends as Gia Cervantes and SG1 look at each other before at the camera. “Intergalactic Planetary” by the Beasties Boys is playing as Payton Darkstar is making her way down the ramp in the background)
Gia Cervantes: Now, that was an interesting look at our Freeweights. Both of them so different in their own ways!
SG1: You give one of them the opportunity and things will be quite interesting!
(FINAL COMMERCIAL BREAK – Rich Brian & Lars Grier on the Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon!)
(Azumi Goto and Sienna Jade are engaged with each other in the ring)
SG1: Welcome back to Thursday Night Empire! We are in the second half of the co-main event where Azumi Goto and Sienna Jade are facing off in our closing match! Here with Gia and I are Payton Darkstar and Astraea Jordan!
Payton: Thank you for having me people of Earth.
Gia: Azumi Goto and Sienna Jade are engaged in a collar and elbow tie-up! Both women aren’t budging as they both have equal footing! Azumi transitions to a waistlock! Sienna squats down in time, keeping herself grounded! Azumi attempts to lift her in a belly-to-back, but Jade takes the chance to counter with a wristlock! Azumi cartwheels and counters with on of her own! Jade is trying to counter, but Azumi has full control of the wrist and pulls her in for a front facelock! Beautiful vertical suplex by Goto!
Payton: She has great technique.
Astraea: Hmph. Sufficient.
SG1: Goto seems to be in full control of this match as she transitions into a headlock! Sienna played a role in her sister’s Sakuya’s loss – who’s standing ringside, providing encouragement for her sister! Sienna’s trying to break free from the headlock as Azumi slowly gets up with Sienna in her grasp! Azumi transitions to a full nelson and nails the SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX!
Gia: Azumi made that transition happen out of thin air! It’s amazing to see how far she’s come in her ability! Before she prided herself on being a submission specialist, but over time she diversified her moveset!
SG1: Many would go to say that her current style is similar to that of her fellow JET alum, Stephanie Matsuda!
Payton: Maybe she saw the success Matsuda has with a balanced moveset and feels that will work for her as well. Judging from what I’ve seen, she’s made a smart decision!
Astraea: Sorry to be blunt, but Cloud is still better though. Azumi needs that killer instinct the women’s champ has. Honestly, I can’t wait for the day I can get back in the ring with her – and beating that heifer in there is the first step towards that goal.
SG1: I can’t say I disagree with that. Azumi is sitting on Sienna’s back, while applying a grounded hammerlock! Holds such as that and the straight jacket were taught to many of the girls from JET, courtesy of the EAW Performance Center’s own Miss Manami! Sienna herself is a gifted grappler, which is something I think Azumi is very much aware of.
Gia: It seems like she’s playing it safe for the moment. Sienna is trying to wiggle her way out, listening to some guidance Kassidy is yelling to her ringside! Sienna goes under Azumi and manages to flip her over and executes a jackknife hold for a pinfall!
SG1: Azumi kicks out, surprised at what just happened! Looks like Sienna is looking in our direction, as if to show you ladies what you’ll be dealing with come Terminus!
Astraea: Well she can pop awf then!
Payton: I am taking notice of her athletic ability. I’m assessing the situation with potential countermeasures.
Gia: …yeah. Azumi is slowly getting to her feet, more aware of Sienna’s chain wrestling skill. Jade is crawling towards her opponent, as if to intimidate her. Jade goes low, going for a takedown! Azumi attempts to move to the side! Jade ducks the spinning backfist and counters with a Northern Lights Suplex! She arches her back for the pin!
SG1: Azumi kicks out, and both women are on their feet! Sienna hits the knife edge chop!
SG1: Jade whips Azumi to the ropes, single leg drop kick on the rebound! Sienna picks up her opponent – VICIOUS DDT!
Astraea: (yells) You’re trying too hard!
Gia: Sienna is glaring this way as she picks up Azumi by the hair, and tosses her through the ropes outside the ring! Goto is getting up – baseball slide by Jade and Goto goes crashing down to the ground!
SG1: Sakuya is on high alert as Kassidy moves a little close. Sienna climbs onto the apron. She’s waiting for Azumi to get up – running knee lift! She hops down eager to continue her assault! She picks up Azumi and tosses her into the barricade!
Gia: Sienna and Kassidy’s laughing as Azumi is struggling to stand up!
Astraea: They’re acting like they accomplished something. I wish she would try that with me…
SG1: Sienna is looking in this direction now!
Sienna: Bitch says what!?
(Astraea stands up)
Astraea: What did you call me!?
Payton: Ms. Jade should focus on her opponent and not us.
Sienna: (off mic) You’re right my dear…
SG1: Sienna has Azumi is her grasp…
Gia: Wait – LOOK OUT!
(Everyone dives out the way as Sienna throws Azumi over the commentary table. Astraea Jordan is the first up and immediate tackles Sienna to the floor)
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: The ref has called for the bell as the match will probably be awarded in Sienna’s favor! At what cost though as her rash actions has caused Astraea to unleash a barrage of punches on her! Kassidy Heart hits Astraea with a double axe handle from behind! She grabs Astraea from behind, dragging her by the braid! Sienna gets to her feet and kicks Astraea in the gut! Jordan doubles over as the Jaded Hearts presume to stomp on her – GOTO SISTERS WITH STEREO SPEARS ON THE JADED HEARTS! SAKUYA AND AZUMI TO THE RESCUE AS THEY’RE ATTACKING SIENNA AND KASSIDY WITH A FLURRY OF FOREARM STRIKES. sIENNA AND KASSIDY ARE ON THEIR FEET, TRYING TO GET AWAY!
(Sienna and Kassidy escape up the ramp, holding each other)
Gia: Payton Darkstar just left our side to help up Astraea was Azumi and Sakuya Goto are standing at the bottom of the ramp, staring down the Jaded Hearts! This Four Corners tag match is starting to heat up!
(The camera transitions from the Goto Sisters to the Jaded Hearts holding each other om stage as the camera fades out to the EAW logo.)
