Grand Rampage 9

 

 

(EAW Intro Plays)

(The Grand Rampage video begins with video of the Notre Dame campus as students go about their day. Soon, the video picks up some of the many famous landmarks of the campus: The Golden Dome that sits atop the Administration Building, The Basilica of the Sacred Heart, and the Hesburgh Library with the mural colloquially known as “Touchdown Jesus”. Finally, after a brief overhead shot of Notre Dame stadium, the camera pans from the field around the stands that are empty for the time being. Only silence…until finally a voice can be heard speaking.)

Voice: Welcome, Warriors of Elite Answers Wrestling. I am Notre Dame Stadium. My stands are empty and all is quiet for now, but soon the corridors will be filled in excess of 70,000 to cheer their heroes on to victory. It’s something that I’m used to. For 85 years, thousands upon thousands have done the same thing.

(As the video package continues, highlights of some of the great Fighting Irish football players and coaches are shown including Knute Rockne, Ara Parsegian, “Rocket” Ismail, Jerome Bettis, Joe Montana, Golden Tate and many others.)

Voice: I’m sure many of you wonder now why I have invited the stars of EAW to settle their scores on my gridiron battleground. You see, I am accustomed to many superstars and legends plying their craft here at the prime of their careers and lives.

(Images of various EAW stars such as Mr. DEDEDE holding up his Answers World Championship, Heart Break Gal, Y2Impact, Drake and Jones, Lucian Black and Dark Demon appear next.)

Voice: I am accustomed to bitter rivalries.

(Images of some of Notre Dame’s fiercest rivalries are shown. Notre Dame versus Miami, Notre Dame vs Michigan and Notre Dame Vs Southern California make up the bulk of the footage. Soon after, footage of some of the rivalries that have built up over the last few weeks and months of EAW including Tarah Nova vs Xavier Williams, Cerebus vs Drake and Jones and Eris vs Madison Kaline.)

Voice: On this field, groups of hard men have banded together to become something far bigger, far stronger than they would have achieved alone.

(Rare footage of the legendary “Four Horsemen” backfield of Notre Dame’s glory days in the 1920s is shown. Moments after, Omerta members Zack Crash, JJ Silva, Brody Sparks and the EAW World Heavyweight Champion Scott Oasis all stand together on the same field the Horsemen stood on long ago.)

Voice: I am used to controversy, chaos and strife. That is what the sport of American football is all about. Year after year I have seen the greatest athletes in the United States come here and give their all for their school, their families and themselves. What will you give your all for today, Elitists and Vixens?

(Lioncross is shown sitting in the locker room, a cold glare in his eyes as he looks into the camera.)

Lioncross: Is it for loved ones and the reputation of where you came from?

(Stephanie Matsuda is shown in an empty gym, striking the heavy bag hard with a flurry of kicks and punches.)

Matsuda: Is it to push yourself to a level you’ve never risen to?

(Dark Demon is shown walking into the stadium, being screamed at by angry fans, looking around the thousands of empty seats.)

Dark Demon: Is it to walk in front of a stadium of people that hate you, succeeding anyway just to shut them up?

(Pizza Boy is shown sitting in the stands, looking towards the Golden Dome)

Pizza Boy: Is it to find your place, your own standing in the world?

(Lucas Johnson is shown warming up with an unknown partner, practicing wrestling takedowns.)

Lucas Johnson: Is it simply to survive the onslaught?

(Heart Break Gal is shown next as people begin filing into the arena, the legend lacing up her boots.)

Heart Break Gal: Is it to make history?

(Tig Kelly is shown next, standing in the ring and looking over the arena as everything is being readied for the event to start.)

Tig Kelly: Is it to prove that you’re ready to rise to the occasion?

(Ares Vendetta is seen standing in the dark hallways of the stadium, leaning against the wall.)

Ares Vendetta: Is it to claim what you know to be your birthright?

(Cailin Dillon, Eris LeCava, Dedede, Mexican Samurai, Drake and Jones, Carson Ramsey, Maxwell Dachs, Scott Oasis, Pizza Boy, Victor Vendetta and Xavier all appear in various areas of the stadium, holding their respective Championships.)

Cailin: Is it simply…

Eris: Is it simply….

Mexi: Is it simply….

DEDEDE: To hold onto your glory?

Drake and Jones: At any and all costs.

Carson Ramsey: Against all odds.

Maxwell: Against all challengers.

Scott Oasis: To prove you’re not a fluke.

Xavier: To enjoy the sweet taste of revenge.

Pizza Boy: To continue building your legacy.

Voice: Whatever the reason, whatever your justification for what has brought you here, warriors, I only have one request…no. One DEMAND. That no matter if you win or lose, if you leave covered in glory or the shame of defeat. I ask that one thing be done on this field where legends and common men have given their all in the shadows of one of America’s great institutions. FIGHT WITH HONOR OR WITHOUT, WITH PRIDEFUL COURAGE OR CRAVEN COWARDICE, RECKLESS HATE OR WILD DESPERATION IF YOU MUST, NONE OF THAT MATTERS TO ME! ONLY ADHERE TO ONE CREED AS YOU STEP ONTO MY HALLOWED GROUND TONIGHT!

(As several EAW Elitists walk out of the locker room, they pass by one sign posted overhead, one that has been in the stadium for decades. The likes of Phoenix Winterborn, Erica Ford, Stark, Brian Daniels, Cyclone, JJ Silva and many others pass by, slapping the sign for good luck. Its words read simply one thing as the camera pans in to focus on it.)

“Play Like a Champion Today.”

Y2Impact: Play like a Champion today. Or in my case…. Fight. And win.

(Eclipse Diemos is shown standing outside the locker room, laughing as he stares into the camera.)

Eclipse: The greatest rampage the world has ever seen…begins now!

(The video package cuts out before the camera pans over the filled to capacity Notre Dame Stadium briefly before fading to black again.)

(The Grand Rampage animation comes on the screen as the crowd can be heard in the background screaming wildly.)

Narrator: AND NOW…. Elite Answers Wrestling is proud to present to you THE NINTH ANNUAL EAW GRAND RAMPAGE!

(“Wolves” by Kanye West blasts through the arena as the fans are shown screaming and applauding as fireworks explode around the stadium, Pyro shooting off on the specially built stage for the event. After a few more moments of panning over the frenzied crowd, the picture switches to a desk near ringside as the three-man commentary team of Kawajai, Stew-O and Jake Mercer is standing by)

Kawajai: WE ARE LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN EAW HISTORY FROM THE LEGENDARY NOTRE DAME STADIUM HERE ON THE CAMPUS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME IN SOUTH BEND, INDIANA! IN EXCESS OF 73,000 EAW FANS HAVE GATHERED HERE TONIGHT TO WITNESS THE LARGEST GRAND RAMPAGE IN HISTORY! Welcome, everyone to Grand Rampage 9, I’m Kawajai along with my broadcast partners for this evening Stew-O and Jake Mercer! Gentlemen, we have one of the greatest events in EAW history on tap tonight!

( Camera opens up to the Ring Announcer standing front and center in the ring with a microphone in hand )

( DING! DING! DING! )

RA: This opening contest is scheduled for one fall… and is for the NNATTIOOONALLL EELLIIIITEE CHAMPIOOOOONSHIIIIPPPP!!!

( “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” by Cage The Elephant hits as Evan Stark comes out to the ring )

RA: Introducing first the challenger… from Manhattan, New York weighing in tonight at 205 POOOOOOUNNNDSSS… EEEEVVAAAAAAAANNN STAAAAAAARRRKK!!!

Stew-O: Dynasty will kick things off in what is, in my view already, the biggest Grand Rampage of ALL TIME! Scores of RABID and RAUCOUS fans are packed inside the legendary Notre Dame Stadium on this beautiful afternoon… and the first of TEN Championship matches set for this evening is set to be underway shortly!

Matt Ryder: We’re seeing a more driven and determined Evan Stark than, perhaps, ever before! He’s competed in some major events in some major matches, but tonight might be the most important match of his career, as he’s set to battle for the National Elite Championship, and battle for his pride as well!

( “Chic n’ Stu” by System of a Down hits, and The Pizza Boy comes out to the ring wearing shades and a leather red and black jacket with the National Elite Championship around his waist. )

RA: And his opponent… from New York City, weighing 175 POOOOOOOOOOUNDS… HE IS THE REIGNING, DEFENDING NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIOOOOOOOON… THEEEEEEEEE PIZZAAAA BOOOOOOOOYYY!!!

Stew: We’ve witnessed a transformation in The Pizza Boy, some would consider it growth, some would consider it degradation.

Matt Ryder: You could say a sort of innocence was lost when the Heart Break Boy announced his retirement; maybe Pizza Boy’s belief in this world began to wane… but one thing’s for certain, he is going to hold nothing back this evening! His title is still on the line, this is still a prize fight, and the only thing on the both of these men’s minds right now is “WIN”.

( Pizza Boy and Evan Stark are getting into each others faces, but the referee separates them and hands the NE title over to a worker. The official then calls for the bell. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Matt Ryder: SO PIZZA BOY AND EVAN STARK COME RUSHING AT EACH OTHER LIKE BULLS, AND START SWINGING AT EACH OTHER WITH RIGHTS, CONNECTING THEM SIMULTANEOUSLY! BOTH COMPETITORS TEARING INTO EACH OTHER WITH PUNCHES, PUNCHES GALORE, BUT STARK CUTS PIZZA BOY OFF WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION. PB drops to his knees and Stark hits closed fist shots to the skull, and pulls PB up to send him into the ropes with a whip…. but PB hits a 619 through the ropes to land on the apron, and Stark comes after him.. SHOULDER THRUST INTO THE RIBS! PB slides under the bottom rope back into the ring and hits a running head scissors take down! Stark hits the mat, comes back up, DROPKICK by Pizza Boy, and a lateral press!

Ref: OOOOONE!!!

Stew: JUST A ONE COUNT. Evan Stark gets back up holding his jaw after being hit by that surprisingly picture perfect dropkick from The Pizza Boy… and Pizza Boy heads over to Stark who’s using the ropes for support and fires off a shoot kick right to the thigh! A swift, loud and punshing kick was connected, and PB follows up with a stiff forearm, and another stiff shoot kick! Stark heads over to the corner and Pizza Boy follows him going for an assortment of closed fist punches! Stark trying to cover up, but Pizza Boy’s firing away and the official is trying to get in between them to stop PB’s assault on his cornered opponent!

Matt Ryder: STARK RUSHES OUT OF THE CORNER AND LEVELS PIZZA BOY WITH A BIG TIME RUNNING LARIAT!!! Stark drops to his knees still in a little pain, but peanuts compared to how badly he just decapitated his opponent! Pizza Boy drags himself up, and Stark quickly grabs a hold of him and floors him with the snap suplex! Stark twists his lower body and pulls himself up to his feet… backs himself into the corner… and there’s a VICIOUS SNAP SUPLEX INTO THE CORNER, NEARLY DROPPING PIZZA BOY RIGHT ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! Evan Stark stands up and starts screaming in the face of the National Elite Champion, and follows up with a rage-fueled sequence of stomps into the chest of his opponent, before dragging him out of the corner and getting the cover!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWW-

Stew: Kick out right at two! Evan Stark immediately mounts his opponent and goes for a flurry of punches! This rivalry between Stark and Pizza Boy has lent credence to the aggression we’re seeing right now! The official’s trying to break it up, but Stark keeps it coming with those stiff punches!

Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Stew: Stark stops his assault and drags Pizza Boy up to his feet… just to DROP HIM with a European uppercut! And Stark runs the ropes, just to rebound off of them with a STANDING SWANTON! CONNECTS, AND A HOOK OF BOTH LEGS NOW!

Ref: OOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Matt Ryder: Kick out right at two from The Pizza Boy, and now Pizza Boy rolls out of the ring to create enough distance to give himself a chance to get back in this. Or maybe I’m over-complicating it, maybe he’s just trying to get the hell out of dodge! But Evan Stark walks over to the turnbuckle and waits for Pizza Boy to get back up to his feet… and when he does he SPRINGS UP TO THE TOP ROPE IN ONE BOUND AND HITS A MOONSAULT FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, TAKING OUT HIS OPPONENT DOWN AT RINGSIDE!!! And Stark pops up with a ton of adrenaline coursing through him following that brilliantly executed attack! Stark drags Pizza Boy up to his feet, and slowly tosses Pizza Boy into the ring underneath the bottom rope… and Stark follows back in, but Pizza Boy rolls out of the ring through the other side! Stark’s a bit frustrated by that, and he decides to follow Pizza Boy out of the ring, and grab Pizza Boy by the head …. but PB cuts him off with a body shot! Stark comes back with a forearm! That knocks Pizza Boy on his keister, and Stark follows through mounting his opponent here at ringside yet again and hitting a FLURRY OF FOREARM SHOTS!

Ref: ONE! TWO!

Stew: Stark stops the assault and drags Pizza Boy back up and in the ring… now Pizza Boy’s on all fours, and Stark watches his opponents movements… and goes for ANOTHER STANDING SWANTON! BUT PIZZA BOY COMBAT ROLLS OUT OF IT! Stark hits the mat spine first, and hits it hard! He sits up, and Pizza Boy runs down the back of Starks neck, runs straight forward and rebounds off the ropes in front of Stark just to come right back with a CROSSBODY ON HIS SEATED OPPONENT! The lateral press!

Ref: OOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWW-

Matt Ryder: STARK POWERS OUT OF THAT! Pizza Boy’s certainly not at 100 percent, but he’s in a better spot momentarily than Evan Stark is. Stark’s makes his way back up to his feet.. and Pizza Boy runs to the corner, hops on the second rope and goes for the FLYING BULLDOG!!! BUT EVAN STARK CATCHES PIZZA BOY IN MID AIR, AND GOES FOR THE SIDEWALK SLAM! BUT PIZZA BOY COUNTERS WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL HEAD SCISSORS!OH MY GOODNESS, STARK LANDS WITH A HANDSTAND! AND SPRINGS BACK TO HIS FEET, AND TAKES PIZZA BOY DOWN WITH A PELE KICK! WHAT A COUNTER, WHAT A SEQUENCE, AND A HOOK OF THE LEG!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE!! TWWWWW-

Stew: Kick out at two… and Stark immediately spinners down the back of Pizza Boy and hits a DEADLIFT BRAINBUSTER!!!! DEADLIFT BRAINBUSTER BY EVAN STARK!!! AND STARK FOLLOWS IT UP WITH THE STANDING SSP!!!! HE GOT IT!!! HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

Matt Ryder: KICK OUT!!! WHAT!? WHAT!? EVAN STARK CANNOT BELIEVE IT, AND NEITHER CAN I! STARK IS BANGING HIS FISTS INTO THE MAT, SCREAMING AT THE OFFICIAL WITH HIS EYES LIKE SAUCERS IN DISBELIEF! Pizza Boy managed to kick out of that deadly Brainbuster/Shooting Star Press combo, and hold onto the National Elite Championship at least for a few moments longer! Evan Stark has no time to waste, he’s got to capitalize while he still has the advantage!

Stew: Evan Stark heads over to the turnbuckle in the corner and climbs all the way up to the top… you can see Pizza Boy attempting to sit up, but he can’t! He’s too racked with pain to even respond, and Evan Stark has now made it all the way up to the top turnbuckle! AND THERE IT IS!!! SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM EVAN STARK!!! BUT PIZZA BOY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!!! STARK HITS THE MAT FACE FIRST, OH MY GOD! THE MOMENTUM OF THAT TAKES STARK UP TO HIS KNEES… AND THE PIZZA BOY FOLLOWS UP WITH THE RED LETTERS!!! KNEELING SUPERKICK, STRAIGHT INTO THE JAW!!! THERE’S THE COVER!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “Chic n’ Stu” by System of a Down comes back on, and the referee helps Pizza Boy to his feet and hands him the National Elite Championship. )

RA: Here is your winner and STILL THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIOOOONN… THEEEEEE PIZZAAAAAA BOYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!

( The referee raises Pizza Boy’s arm, while Pizza Boy raises the NE title with his other free arm. )

Matt Ryder: NOT an easy bout whatsoever for The Pizza Boy!

Stew: Not at all, Matt! He was taken to task and then some for the majority of this match! Evan Stark had a lot of pent up rage and aggression he was letting out, and Pizza Boy was forced to weather that furious storm of offense his opponent had coming for him.

Matt Ryder: But it was not for naught, Stew! Pizza Boy was able to find an opening and seal the victory at the last second!

( Pizza Boy exits the ring and holds his title up at the bottom of the ramp while Evan Stark stares down his opponent while on the ground, holding his jaw )

(COMMERCIAL: Intro to “Cannonball” by Skylar Grey ft. X Ambassadors plays as it shows Pain for Pride posters and propaganda all over the city of Miami, Florida )

Narrator: On July 1st and 2nd… the summer’s biggest spectacle takes place at New Miami Stadium..

(The Pain for Pride 9 logo emerges on the screen)

Narrator: Become a part of history, and witness the Event of a Lifetime… PAIN FOR PRIDE 9!

(The music continues and the commercial shows flashes of the excitement and roar of the EAW Audience during amazing “Pain for Pride moments” over the years such as CM Banks making his entrance at Pain For Pride,
Cameron Ella Ava hitting the Goddess’ Touch on her opponent,
Carlos Rosso making his entrance to the ring,
Evan Stark hitting the Shooting Star Press off of the Ultimate X Ropes,
Methuselah hitting a spear on Y2Impact,
Heart Break Boy hitting the Goldprint on CM Banks,
Hades connecting the Brimstone Piledriver,
Tarah Nova holding up her Vixens Championship,
and Devan Dubian raising the Answers World Championship after winning the Main Event of Pain For Pride.)

“At the end of the day
When the air is still and the sky is grey
Who will be standing?
I challenge you all… Bombs away…”

(Cut back to the Pain for Pride logo, as the commercial comes to an end and and “62 days” flashes across the screen.)

( Cut back to the Notre Dame Stadium… and the Pure Championship graphic appears on the screen )

Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the EAW Pure Championship!

(“Break The Silence” by Breaking Benjamin plays as the lights darken and strobe red around the stage. Beretta walks out of the curtain with a glass of whiskey in his hand and the moment he does he is met with a heavy negative reaction.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Boston Massachusetts! Weighing in at 225 pounds! He is “The One”……BERETTAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!

WWEFan: Beretta is looking very ready for his Free Per View debut! This is an opportunity that many newcomers would love but only few would be able to get. On your very first major event you get a Pure title match and you do it at not just any event, but Grand Rampage, one of our biggest shows of the year!

Kawajai: I don’t think Beretta sees it that way unfortunately. He doesn’t appreciate this title match as much as others would, the way he sees this is as a consolation prize! Beretta believes he should be much farther along in his Voltage career and is looking to bust the proverbial door down and take his spot, something he can do tonight by defeating this man!

(“Almost Famous” by Eminem plays as Carson Ramsay makes his entrance with the Pure Championship and the crowd pops hugely.)

Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Batman, Turkey! Weighing in at 230 pounds! He is our EAW Pure Champion…..”The Man With The Silver Swing”…..CARSON RAMSAAAAAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!

WWEFan: That is easier said than done. The Champion has reached a whole other level since winning the belt. He has made it his personal goal of becoming one of the most fighting champions in history. He started a Pure Open Challenge for his belt earlier this month and has since defeated three different challengers leading to up to this!

Kawajai: Carson Ramsay has adjusted to life as Pure Champion easily, turning from brawler into skilled technician without any trouble. Carson’s ability as a wrestler has really shined with this title run but tonight, we won’t be getting a technical masterpiece! We’re going to see fists fly!

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: The match begins as Beretta and Carson Ramsay meet up for a collar and elbow tie up! Carson Ramsay quickly overpowers Beretta and turns it into a headlock before tossing Beretta overhead and dropping him to the canvas! He grabs Beretta’s face to hold him down as he slowly eases off….and then jumps up for a knee drop to the nose that gets a rise out of Beretta who moves around in pain on the ground! As Beretta turns over onto his stomach holding his nose, he ends up taking an elbow directly to the spine! Carson moves around to the front of Beretta, kneeing him in the crown of the head and then dragging him up to drop him back down with a vertical suplex! Carson is showing some great skill here which he follows up by backing away, going for a dropkick!

Kawajai: Beretta ducks down to the side to avoid it and then runs up for a penalty kick to the ribs as Carson gets on his fours! Carson is given a jolt from the impact and lays on his back in pain as Beretta grabs him by the neck and brings him over into the corner! Carson goes face first into the turnbuckle! As he is dazed he gets leaned against it by Beretta who grabs him by the wrist and pulls him in for a short arm clothesline! Carson ducks it but before he can hit the ropes to gather momentum, Beretta has him by the back of the shirt and pulls him back in! The clothesline got him, but right in the neck! Carson is shaking his head and trying to get together his bearings but Beretta brings him up and carries him around the ring!

WWEFan: The time is right as Beretta drops Carson chest first into the ropes, leaving him hanging there! A KICK TO THE FACE GOES UNANSWERED AS CARSON CAN’T PROPERLY PROTECT HIMSELF IN THAT POSITION! Then a knee lift knocking him upside the head! Beretta is toying with Carson, smacking him around before just straight up hammering away at the back of his skull! Clubbing forearms to Carson as it seems Beretta might be sneaking in a few rights there during the flurry of blows! Those closed fists go unnoticed by the referee though and just as it seems Carson is about to fall out and get off the ropes, Beretta keeps him up and then has him by the head! Carson gets SPIKED by that DDT! He turns right over from the fall, ending up with his shoulders on the mat as Beretta presses up against him to take advantage! We got body on body there, the lateral press as the referee counts it as a pinfall!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE…..TWOOOOOOOOO……..HEY!

Kawajai: The referee points out that one of Carson’s shoulders has been tilted off of the mat! He is still shaken from that brutal DDT so it wasn’t much of a kick out! A keen eye shown by the referee as that might have gone unnoticed by some! Beretta is frustrated as he believed he had it there! It’s pretty early in the match and Beretta is already wearing him down, following him as tries to crawl and then pushing him around! Beretta does not want Carson to get back up on his feet! Carson puts his hands up right before he falls flat on his face and then regains his footing, but as he stands up Beretta strikes! His arms wrap around the throat of Carson! He has that right hand of his pressed against the neck, pushing Carson’s throat closer into the hold! He has that choke in deep, Carson could quickly pass out from this!

WWEFan: Carson is struggling, wriggling around in that hold trying to get out of it but Beretta has that sleeper hold in perfectly! He’s stepped back for distance so that Carson can’t hit him in the legs or throw any elbows back! Carson reaches but can’t get him from that angle! Carson goes for a stunner in desperation! But no! Beretta is able to make a recovery and keep Carson from fully sitting down, pulling him back up in that sleeper to stop the stunner! Beretta is looking to fall back with that hold but Carson moves forward! He has the ropes! Beretta is still trying to pull him back for that sleeper as the referee dishes out a five count!

Referee: Come on Beretta, clean break! ONE! TWO!…THREEE! FOUR!! FI —

Kawajai: Beretta breaks it, but as he does he doesn’t waste time getting Carson by the arm! Back suplex attempt! Carson flips over and lands onto his feet! A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE THAT NEARLY TAKES CARSON OUT OF HIS SHOES! THE CRACKING NOISE FROM THAT AS IT CONNECTED TO THE JAW WAS NASTY! Carson spits to the side as his tooth might have been chipped there before he takes a couple of steps back into the ropes, nearly following between them as — HE GRABS THE ROPE AND SHOOTS BACK INTO THE RING WITH A PENDULUM LARIAT THAT TURNS BERETTA INSIDE OUT! THE WICKED CHARMS! CARSON RAMSAY IS DAZED BUT COMES TO QUICKLY AND TURNS THE BODY OF BERETTA OVER, HOOKING THE LEG AS HE DOES SO!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!….TWOOOOOO!!!!……KICKOUT!!!!!!!

WWEFan: Beretta gets the shoulder up! Carson Ramsay is on his side, thinking up a new game plan but as he looks back at Beretta he is already starting to roll away! Carson wakes up in a hurry and rushes toward him to stop him from leaving the ring! Beretta is huddled up against the corner, holding onto it as Carson tries to yank him away! Carson has finally removed Beretta and turned him around as — OH!

Kawajai: BERETTA JUST SPIT WHISKEY INTO THE EYES OF CARSON RAMSAY! BERETTA LEFT HIS GLASS ON THE APRON AND I THINK HE JUST SECRETLY WENT TO TAKE A SWIG SO HE COULD SUCKER OUR PURE CHAMPION IN! Carson is blinded as the sting from that alcohol is searing his eyes red and turning them watery! Carson turns around and covers his eyes but Beretta uses Carson’s hair as a way to bring him down into a knee! That modified variant of the backbreaker is followed up by a second maneuver! Up Carson goes in powerbomb position! Beretta falls in reverse though as Carson is launched into the mat, his head bouncing off the canvas!

WWEFan: Carson is being dragged around the ring by the legs but is trying to fight back, kicking away at Beretta to keep him at bay! A kick catches Beretta in the shin and drops him to a knee! Carson feels around with his eyes nearly closed shut and delivers a neckbreaker before taking his leave from the ring! Carson really needs some space right now! He makes his way to our commentary booth — and he has your bottle of water, Kawa! He pours the water on his face to flush out his eyes from the alcohol as he can now start to see clearly! Carson pours the rest of the bottle over his head to wake himself up and lets out a shout with the crowd! Carson is back in this folks and he’s ready to defend his title!

Kawajai: A now game Carson Ramsay hops up onto the apron — BUT OH! SHOULDER THRUST INTO THE GUT! CARSON DROPS INTO THE APRON FACE FIRST! He manages to keep his body up on the apron and is pulling himself back up but Beretta walks up, gets between the ropes and joins him there! A kick to the sternum doubles Carson over just as he looks up as he now falls into Beretta’s arms! Up on his shoulders Carson goes! Beretta has that grin on his face, he knows he’s about to do something crazy! FIREMAN’S CARRY SLAM ONTO THE APRON AS CARSON’S SPINE VISIBLY BENDS, THE FORCE OF THAT IS MAKING HIM CRINGE! CARSON GRITS HIS TEETH AND NEARLY FALLS ONTO THE FLOOR HOLDING HIS LOWER BACK BUT BERETTA GRABS HIM!

WWEFan: Beretta knows that he can’t win the title by countout so he is making sure that Carson does not leave his sight! Beretta making good use of that twenty count that comes with Pure title defenses, allowing him to take his sweet time while he brings Carson back into the ring and nonchalantly heads over to his downed body! Hang on, Beretta isn’t even bothering to lean down for the pin, he just simply puts his foot down on Carson and that contact counts as a pin attempt!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!…..TWOOOOOOO!!!!……THR —

Kawajai: Carson of course gets out of that pin! You won’t be able to take him down with something like that, a lazy cover such as that is plain disrespectful! Beretta is visibly bothered by Carson’s display as heads on over back to the corner that has his whiskey glass and comes back over to Carson! He’s tilting the glass and spilling it all over Carson, trying to embarrass him! He tosses the glass to the side and then swings his foot right into the mouth of Carson! Beretta has done nothing but brutal forearms and kicks to Carson and eventually Carson will have to give in from all of that blunt trauma to the skull!

WWEFan: Beretta flips Carson over in the air! SHOULDER BREAKER! He then drops Carson down in the middle of the ring with a powerslam! Beretta stands up and is now backing away into the corner, pacing himself! Stalking his prey! I know what he is going for ; We’ve seen Beretta hit this move before and when it hits, his opponents don’t get up from it! Carson starts to stir and drags himself up as he turns around! THE BULLET!

Kawajai: Carson dodges and redirects Beretta into the steel post! Beretta backs up holding his collar bone as he eyes Carson who is egging him on and flipping him the bird! Beretta grows angry and charges at Carson — HE’S THROWN UP IN THE AIR AND CAUGHT WITH A SUPERKICK AS HE FALLS DOWN! BERETTA FALLS DOWN, CURLED UP IN A BALL AS CARSON DEADLIFTS HIM IN VERTICAL SUPLEX POSITION ; TOSSING HIM UP FOR DOUBLE KNEES TO THE BACK! BERETTA FALLS DOWN ONTO HIS STOMACH AS CARSON STILL ISN’T DONE! HE HOOKS BACK THE ARMS AND FORCES HIM UP, DRAGGING BERETTA UP WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT! THE DOUBLE ARM DDT CONNECTS ; THE FAITHFUL 89! CARSON HOOKS THE LEG, LOOKING TO WRAP THIS UP!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!…..TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!……THREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Almost Famous” by Eminem plays as Carson is on his knees, letting out a sigh of relief as he asks for his title.)

Ring Announcer: The winner of this match…..and still EAW Pure Champion!!!!…..CARSOOOONNNNNNN…..RAMSAAAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!

WWEFan: Carson Ramsay comes through in the end in spectacular fashion! What a series to close off this match, he tossed Beretta around like a rag doll and then nearly snapped his neck in half like a twig with that Faithful 89!

Kawajai: Beretta almost got the win until that one slip up with The Bullet, something an adapter like Carson Ramsay was able to capitalize on rather fast! Another challenger has rose to the occasion, and another challenger has been shot down! That’s four in a row for Carson in a single month! We could be looking at the best Pure Championship reign in history if he keeps this going!

( Camera goes backstage, and Corporate HRDO is in his office talking with Brody Sparks )

HRDO: Listen, don’t think I’m not privy to this funny business with Omerta alright? I don’t need you people corrupting my World Heavyweight Championship match tonight with whatever ploys Zack Crash wants to come up with.

Brody Sparks: HRDO! I’m surprised at you! What do you think we have planned, anyway?

HRDO: I don’t know, but you’ve already managed to stack the deck against Tig Kelly after all. I won’t allow the usual shady business dealings of Zack Crash to fly anymore, I’m the man in charge now.

Brody: Oooh… I like it when a man takes charge.

HRDO: Yeah… well.. did you want something from me or what? I’m sorry but this is an extremely important night for me and I’m very busy.

Brody: I just want your attention, is that so bad? You haven’t been returning my calls, or answering my text messages…

HRDO: sigh Brody, how many times do I have to tell you, I don’t engage in personal calls with employees.

Brody: : I love it when you try to act professional… it’s so hot.

( Brody grabs HRDO’s hand, and looks into his eyes )

Brody: Look, I’m going to cut to the chase since I’m more of a direct kind of girl… I know you have feelings for me. I see it in the way you look at me.

HRDO: What?–

Brody: Shhh… don’t worry about it. What do you say after the show tonight we head back to my pla-

( A knock is heard on the door, and Aria Jaxon enters the room as Brody lets go of HRDO’s hand and rolls her eyes. )

HRDO: Aria, thanks for coming. Seriously, thank you.

( HRDO and Aria shake hands )

Brody: What are you doing here, Aria? (roll)

Aria: I was told my presence was wanted… was I interrupting anything?

Brody: Kinda.

HRDO: Not at all. In fact, I requested that you stopped by because I had something very important to tell you. As you very well know, by defeating Cameron Ella Ava in the main event of Showdown several weeks ago, you earned yourself a shot at the EAW Vixens Championship. I bring this up because at Triple Threat you will officially be getting your shot at the Vixens Championship against either Eris LeCava and Madison Kaline.

Brody: flatly Yaayy.

HRDO: And I also want to inform you that this match… will HEADLINE Triple Threat. Thus being the first ever Vixens Championship match in EAW history to headline an FPV!

Aria: OH MY GOD.

Brody: Congratulations. (crs)

( HRDO shakes Aria’s hand, and Aria hugs HRDO and starts wiping tears out of her eyes )

Aria: Thank you so much! I won’t let you down!

HRDO: You deserve it. Congratulations, and good luck.

( Aria leaves the room smiling, and Brody crosses her arms )

Brody: So what was the hug all about. (crs)

HRDO: What?

( HRDO’s phone starts going off, and he tells Brody to ”hold that thought” as he answers his phone and walks off, leaving a scornful Brody Sparks behind. )

( Return to ringside )

(DING DING DING!)

(A graphic on the screen shows the EAW Specialists Championship belt)

Ring Announcer: The next contest of Grand Rampage 9 is the first-ever Specialists Rampage! The rules are as follows: The match will begin with two participants selected via random drawing earlier today. Every two minutes, another Vixen shall enter the match until all 12 participants have entered the ring. Elimination will only occur when a Vixen has been thrown over the top rope with both feet touching the floor. There are NO Disqualifications, NO pinfalls, NO submissions, NO countouts, NO time limit. The end will come when only one Vixen is left standing…and that one Vixen will leave here tonight as the EAW Specialists Champion!

(The crowd cheers loudly as the camera cuts to the EAW Specialists Championship belt on display at the timekeeper’s desk for a moment before going back to the ring announcer.)

Ring Announcer: Now, ladies and gentlemen, let us all find out who drew number one!

(A brief moment of silence takes over the arena before the opening guitar riff of “Senkou No Brave” by Toshiyuki Morikawa plays and Erica Ford, in an all Silver ensemble appears on the stage with her back turned to the audience, snapping her fingers before turning around and making her way down to the ring.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing participant number one, representing Shinsei Domei, from Talladega, Florida……”The Thundering Heroine” ………. ERRRRRRICAAAAAAAAA FORRRRRRRRRD!

Mercer: Heh, isn’t it kinda funny she’s wearing silver? She’s always used to second place, even on her own tag team!

Kawajai: Well SOMEONES in asshole mode today. I wouldn’t cut this young lady short, Mercer. She has proven that she can win some big matches in singles competition of late and has had several weeks of time off to prepare for this match. Tonight could be the night Erica finally takes home that elusive title.

Stew-O: I’m not entirely sold on her being a singles competitor yet, she’s been a pretty effective tag team wrestler but now she’s got to fight off not only 11 other Vixens but the luck of the draw here. Entering number one in any kind of Rampage match or gauntlet match doesn’t favor you winning.

(Erica stands waiting in the ring to find out who her opposition will be to start the match. The suspense finally ends when “The Rising Sun” by CFO$ plays through the stadium as Grace Izumi takes the stage wearing a special green and gold ensemble with her usual cape and black eyepatch.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing Participant number two: From Waterloo, Ontario, Canada…. GRRRRRRAACE IZUUUUUUUUUUUMI!

Stew-O: Bloodlines, bloodlines, bloodlines! A year after GI Styles last competed in the Grand Rampage, his younger sister Grace Izumi comes to South Bend with a chance to win her first major championship!

Mercer: Why does she have to wear that eyepatch, man? It’s creepy.

Kawajai: That story’s been fairly well documented, Mercer. She lost sight in her right eye at a very young age after illness nearly killed her. She is an inspiration to many for being able to compete with all that she’s gone through in her life. Plus, we know she’s no slouch, she handled a pretty established veteran on Battleground to earn her way into this contest.

(DING DING DING!)

Kawajai: The crowd here in South Bend is electric as the first match of the 2016 edition of Grand Rampage is underway! Grace and Erica are just taking it all in before looking to each other and meeting in the center of the ring. The two quickly shake hands and here we go with a collar and elbow tie up. Erica manages to get the upper hand and force Grace into the corner. Grace trying to struggle out but Erica catches her with a knee to the midsection! A vicious chop to the chest comes neck before an Irish whip sends Grace into the opposite corner. Erica comes charging in and is met with a big boot to the face by Grace! Grace follows it up with a spinning roundhouse kick to take the Thundering Heroine down to the canvas! Erica rolls away to keep Grace from rolling her out and pulls herself up by the ring ropes.

Stew-O: Grace looking pretty sharp early on. Can she or Erica keep up this pace for as long as it will take to win this event though? There are still 10 entrants left to enter, people like Haruna Sakazaki, the former Specialists Champion, Cailin Dillon, the current Champion as well as Heart Break Gal, an EAW hall of famer!

Mercer: Don’t forget we have plenty of loonies on deck like Silence and Alexis Deimos and Brody Sparks. This ring’s gonna look like an insane asylum by the time they get out here!

Kawajai: Erica and Grace are tied up again in the center of the ring and now the two of them are exchanging forearm blows to the face! You wanna talk about strong style, here’s a dose of it here! Erica lands a blow, then Grace then Erica again! Erica lands a big blow that staggers Grace a bit! Erica looks for a discus clothesline but gets caught off guard with a super kick…. But Erica stays up long enough to deliver a rolling elbow and both women go collapsing to the canvas! The 10 second clock now is up and whoever drew number three may have a chance to take advantage of the situation!

10….9….8…7….6……5…4….3……2….1….

BUZZZZZ!

(“Legit Boss” by Wale plays as Veena Adams makes her way down to the ring quickly to a chorus of boos, dashing in underneath the ropes and immediately putting the boots to both Erica and Grace.)

Mercer: The third entrant is the Killer Queen herself! You wanna talk bloodlines, Stew, here are bloodlines for ya! Niece of one of the all-time greats in here with a chance for her first major championship as well!

Kawajai: Veena taking advantage of the opportunity to get in the ring with two downed opponents. She lands some vicious shoot kicks to Erica Ford as she tries to get up to her feet, driving her into a corner! Grace is slow getting up to her feet but Veena comes in and takes her down with a clothesline! She is standing in the center of the ring waiting for one of them to get up…Erica does so and she hits a SPEAR! SPEAR! A VICIOUS SPEAR THAT SENDS ERICA INTO THE TURNBUCKLES HARD BEFORE SHE COLLAPSES IN THE CORNER! Veena could easily pick her up and eliminate her right now, but for the moment she seems like she’ll focus her attention on the rookie Grace as she struggles to her feet…. Veena stalking her like a lioness on the hunt, looking for another spear…. VEENA GOES CHARGING IN LOOKING FOR THE SPEAR…. GRACE JUMPS OVER HER HEAD! Tremendous agility shown by the young Canadian! Veena turns around and tries a quick clothesline but Grace dodges it as well…She pulls Veena up…. BLU-RAY! THAT DEATH VALLEY DRIVER RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AND NOW GRACE WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET THE FIRST ELIMINATION OF THE NIGHT!

Stew-O: She’s got Veena up trying to get her over those ring ropes, but Veena, after realizing what is going on grabs onto the ring ropes, desperately trying to pry off Grace by just rubbing one of her boots in her face and finally does so. Grace lets go Veena comes in and nails her with a clubbing blow to the back. She’s in noticeable pain as she tries to drag Grace towards the ropes…. but Erica Ford comes in and grabs Veena by the hair…. VICIOUS HEADBUTT RIGHT TO THE FOREHEAD! Erica not wasting any time as she takes ahold of Grace herself…. SCOOP SLAM! The clock is lighting up once again as we have another participant on the way, Erica standing tall in the center of the ring as she stares the entrance ramp down waiting for the next entrant!

10….9….8….7….6……5……4……3….2…1….

BUZZZZZZZ!

(“Criminal” by Fiona Apple plays as Brody Sparks walks down to the ring, a too-friendly-to-believe smile on her lips as she stares down Erica Ford.)

Mercer: Brody Sparks is entrant number four! I had a chance to talk to her earlier today. She is a very, uh…friendly individual I have to say. Sweet young woman. Crazy as hell, but still kinda sweet if you ask me.

Stew-O: As friendly as a rattlesnake. As dangerous as one too. Plus, with Omerta watching her back, you do have to take into account she may have some backup coming her way to help her out. Remember, this event is anything goes.

Kawajai: Erica standing ready in the ring as Brody steps on the apron, still smiling. She waves a hand dismissively at Erica before entering and…taking a seat in the corner?

Brody: Don’t mind me, hun. Just keep doing what you were doing.

Stew-O: Well that’s a little strange…Brody looks like she wants just sit there and watch Erica do the dirty work.

Mercer: Well, of course it’s strange! Look who we’re talking about! But it’s also brilliant! Why waste energy messing around with people when someone else can do all the work for you?

Kawajai: Mercer actually does have a point. Erica…keeping a cautious eye on Brody lifts up Grace Izumi and looks for the Shouten-Kai, her Thundering Finish as she calls it…but Grace is able to elbow her way out of it! Grace now looking for her German Suplex…but Erica manages to pull herself free and she turns around…FIGHTING SPIRIT SLAP FINDS THE MARK AND SENDS GRACE DOWN! BUT HERE COMES BRODY SPARKS FROM BEHIND WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO THE RIGHT KNEE!

Stew-O: That’s not good! That’s the same knee HBG worked over in their match on Dynasty about a month ago! Erica says it’s healed but I don’t know man! Brody now grabbing the ankle and lifting Erica’s knee up, driving it into the canvas repeatedly, a frenzied look in her eyes as she does so! Veena Adams on her feet and now she’s trying to hold court, telling Brody to help her throw out Erica! The two of them are apparently in cahoots for now as they lift Erica up from the canvas and are trying to get her over!

Mercer: There’s a joke there somewhere but……

Kawajai: Stop it! Erica teetering on the brink of Elimination as Brody and Veena try to eliminate Erica Ford…. she’s almost out of there! BUT HERE COMES GRACE…SHE GRABS VEENA AND BRODY BY THE HAIR…DOUBLE NOGGIN KNOCKER!

Mercer: Noggin Knocker? Really? Is that what that’s called?

Kawajai: I’m just doing my best to describe the action! Both girls staggering as Grace comes in for a double clothesline taking them both down! Veena and Brody go rolling in opposite directions but now Erica and Grace have the upper hand as we prepare to see entrant number five head down to the ring!

10….9….8….7…6……5….4….3…2….1

BUZZZZZZZ!

(“MEGITSUNE” by BABYMETAL plays as Azumi Goto storms down to the ring to a roar of applause from the fans.)

Kawajai: Entrant number five is Erica Ford’s tag partner and protégé, the self-proclaimed Queen of Puroresu, Azumi Goto!

Mercer: What kind of piss-poor judgement does this girl have, looking to someone who hasn’t done anything in her career as her mentor!?

Stew-O: Azumi immediately coming to the aid of her partner and attacking Brody Sparks. Erica and Azumi nod and start landing vicious kicks and punches in tandem to the Omerta member…. HOLY RUSH COMBINATION! AZUMI LANDS A KICK TO THE HEAD! ERICA LANDS A JUMPING ROUNDHOUSE TO THE CHEST…. STUNNER FROM AZUMI NOW…AND ERICA GRABS BRODY SPARKS AND SENDS HER OVER THE TOP AND TO THE FLOOR!

Ring Announcer: Brody Sparks has been eliminated!

Kawajai: The complexion of this match has drastically changed with both members of the Holy Alliance in the ring now as they turn their attention to Grace and Veena Adams. Grace is trying to eliminate Veena and has her on the ropes fighting for survival, but here comes Erica Ford as she pulls her out of the way. Azumi now has a hold of Adams herself…she pulls her to the center of the ring…. FALLEN KINGDOM! Standing Shiranui connects and Adams is out of it! Erica takes down Grace with a hard chop to the chest and Azumi points out the fallen Veena and the two of them work together and dump her out of the ring and to the floor!

Mercer: OH NO! THIS ISNT FAIR! IT WAS TWO AGAINST ONE!

Stew-O: Be that as it may, Veena Adams is gone!

Ring Announcer: Veena Adams has been eliminated!

Kawajai: This has been a pretty eventful arrival to the match with Azumi Goto. She’s helped turn the match into a much more favorable position for her partner and now Grace gets up and is faced off with both members of Shinsei Domei staring her down. Erica whispering something to Azumi and they try to circle grace…They go in at the same time to grab her but Grace does a quick roll out of the way and springs up…. quick dropkick to Azumi taking her down! This may have to be her strategy for the next few seconds, to just stick and move and hope that the next entrant is somebody who can give her a hand! Erica comes in to try to tackle her but Grace counters with a beautiful Japanese arm drag. The clock is lit up again and that means we’re halfway home…entrant number six should be arriving shortly!

10….9…8….7….6….5……4….3…….2……1

BUZZZ!

(“The Darkness” by Hardstyle plays as the massive Silence slowly makes her way down to the ring minus her mask she normally wears, Erica, Azumi and Grace watching her.)

Mercer: Speaking of game-changers, look at this walking bit of destruction! Can you say that a match like this is tailor-made for Silence, Yes hell you can!

Stew-O: Silence is the 6th entrant into the Specialists Rampage as she makes her way into the ring! Grace immediately tries a dropkick and…let’s just say it wasn’t very effective. Just bounced right off! Azumi tries her luck landing some good forearm shots to the face! She’s almost having to leap up just to make contact! She goes for a kick to the head but Silence swats her away like a fly! Erica comes in and gets taken down with a big boot from Silence! The complexion of this match has shifted again as this massive woman is running roughshod over the other participants!

Kawajai: Erica is down, Grace is down, Azumi is down…Silence picks up Grace and Irish whips her into the ropes…. RUNNING BODY AVALANCHE IN THE CORNER PANCAKES THE CANADIAN! Erica and Azumi are up to their feet and run at Silence as she turns around…double dropkick! That didn’t seem to have much effect but it did at least stagger her a bit! Silence is rocking but gains her footing and rushes in for a double clothesline…she misses both! Azumi and Erica both hit her with kicks to the gut as she turns around…The two of them are lifting he up together into a vertical suplex position!

Mercer: No way! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

Stew-O: DOUBLETEAM BRAINBUSTER!

Kawajai: The two tag team partners are up to their feet and they drag up the much larger Silence along with them to the ropes on the far side of the ring. They’re trying to get her over the ropes but even between the two of them it’s a bit of a struggle! Silence is trying to shrug them off but is having some trouble. And now Grace comes in to help out…THREE VIXENS ARE DUMPING SILENCE OVER….AND SHE FALLS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE FLOOR AND GONE! THE DUALITY DIVA IS OUT OF THIS MATCH ALMOST AS QUICKLY AS SHE ARRIVED!

Ring Announcer: Silence has eliminated!

Kawajai: Shinsei Domei not done as they grab Grace, who had helped them out and throw her up over and out to the arena floor! The sensational rookie has been dismissed as well!

Ring Announcer: Grace Izumi has been eliminated!

(As the realization dawns on them that they are the only two left in the ring, Azumi and Erica turn to each other, Azumi with a bit of a smirk on her lips, Erica sporting a cold stare. The two of them get face to face and words are exchanged.)

Kawajai: Well, it looks like the two of them aren’t going to wait to get it on! They could conceivably just gang up on everyone remaining and then have it out in the end but it looks like we may see Student and Mentor clash right here right now!

Mercer: This is just stupid! You two have been responsible for every elimination so far, why blow it by doing this now!?

Stew-O: The clock is up once again as we count down, this clash may be put on hold for a little while longer though.

10…9….8….7….6….5….4……3….2….1….

BUZZZZZ!

(“Shoegazer” by Eri Aoi plays as Haruna quickly makes her way down the ramp and to the ring, a focused and determined glare in her eyes.)

Mercer: The very first EAW Specialists Champion is on her way to the ring now!

Stew-O: That’s bad news for both the young ladies in the ring. Haruna is fresh and determined to win the title again!

Kawajai: The two teammates are looking at each other, taking a moment to realize that maybe it’s best if they hold off on their fated clash for now and turn their attention to Haruna. The two of them look to be discussing something and it looks like…Erica is asking Azumi to step aside and let her face Haruna alone? Even Azumi and Haruna look a bit confused by this, but Azumi seems alright with it, she shrugs her shoulders and heads over to one of the corners to watch.

Mercer: Why shouldn’t she be alright with it? She gets to rest while the two people in the ring get to beat the hell out of one another while she watches!

Kawajai: Haruna and Erica tie up in the center of the ring and Haruna lands a blow with her knee right to the rib cage! That one staggered Erica and now she has her in a Muay Thai clench, trying to cover up as she moves to promptly eliminate Erica Ford. Azumi is cheering her partner on but not getting involved as Haruna now starts throwing some hard punches to the body and head! Her training with Mexican Samurai seems to have been paying off! Erica manages to shove her away to create some distance and Haruna goes for a head kick but it’s dodged by Erica!

Stew-O: Erica goes sprinting into the ropes and Haruna tries a spinning heel kick this time but it fails…. Erica still charging into the ropes yet again…SLING BLADE! THE SPINNING SLEEPER SLAM CONNECTS AND HARUNA IS TAKEN DOWN!

Kawajai: Azumi looks up at the clock and readies herself for combat, the next entrant on her way to the ring here shortly!

10….9…8…7….6….5…4….3……2….1….

BUZZZZ!

(“Headhunt” by Okamoto’s plays through the stadium as Stephanie Matsuda sprints down to the ring to join in the fight.)

Stew-O: One of the two members of the Formation participating in this match now is on her way to the ring! Stephanie Matsuda is in and her and Azumi immediately go face to face! There has been a lot of smack talk between Shinsei Domei and the Formation all week long leading up to this bout and we are definitely in for a battle now!

Mercer: The battle of the bad hair days. That awful blue mess Stephanie has in her hair going one on one with cotton candy Pinky there.

Kawajai: Azumi shoves Matsuda hard and Stephanie responds with a hard slap to the face…AND AZUMI TAKES HER DOWN WITH A TACKLE! FORGET PURORESU! FORGET SUBMISSION STYLE WRESTLING! THESE TWO ARE JUST FLAT OUT BRAWLING! Azumi on top trying to land some elbow shots, punches, grabbing hair, any and everything! Matsuda trying to land a few punches of her own from the bottom, pulling at whatever she can get her hands on! The two women roll to the outside of the ring and the referees are trying to get them back into the ring! Stephanie is on top now and is trying to ram Azumi’s head onto security railing!

Stew-O: Meanwhile back in the ring Erica and Haruna are battling it out still, Erica trying to get the Japanese Vixen over and out to eliminate her and reduce the numbers again! Haruna tangled in the ropes though manages to land some pretty strong elbows to get herself free of Erica’s grasp… She then follows up with a quick clothesline to buy herself some time! Erica’s head bouncing off that mat pretty hard there!

Kawajai: Back outside of the ring, these two continuing to brawl! Azumi’s managed to get back up to her feet and she rams Stephanie into the security railing this time, head first! She then picks her up…. STUNGUN INTO THE SECURITY BARRICADE! MY GOD!

Mercer: These two have lifted the intensity level of this match, but you have to be cautious here! Sure there are personal scores to settle and all that, but you don’t want to have something happen where you get so short-sighted trying to beat your opponent up that you lose sight of the prize here. The winner of this match is instantly one of the major players in EAW!

Kawajai: Right you are! Azumi finally rolls Stephanie back into the ring after some pretty persistent urging from the referees at ringside as the clock once again begins to go off, the fans counting down as participant number nine is on the way!

10….9….8….7….6….5….4….3…. 2..1…

BUZZZZZZ!

(“Zero Gravity” by Kerli plays as Angela Salvetti makes her way down to the ring, breaking into a full sprint before sliding into the ring.)

Mercer: The gymnast….

Kawajai: The sensational Angela Salvetti is ninth entrant into this contest! She’s eager to avenge her loss in a Specialists Title challenge and claim her first EAW Championship! She immediately goes after Haruna taking her down with a flying forearm! The tempo of this match will definitely change with someone of her aerial ability involved! Erica comes in looking to take her down but gets met with an overhead belly to belly suplex! Nicely done! Azumi comes in firing off some shoot kicks as Angela gets up to her feet however, but gets taken down with a vicious double-forearm blow! Stephanie comes in to try to do something but gets caught with an enziguri!

Stew-O: Erica is up to her feet now as she tries to get back into this match but she’s taken down with a dropkick! Angela Salvetti holding court here during this match! She grabs Stephanie by the hair and is trying to throw her over the top! Stephanie with a vice like grip on that middle rope but Haruna is coming over to help, much to the chagrin of this capacity crowd in Notre Dame Stadium! Azumi up to her feet now and starts clubbing away at Stephanie, Haruna and Angela!

Kawajai: Angela abandoning her plans for Matsuda at the moment and rocks Azumi with a vicious knife edged chop! Azumi responds with a martial arts blow straight to the throat! That will literally cut the wind off and the Detroit native collapses to the canvas! Now the ring is slowly but surely starting to fill with Vixens who are all hungry. Considering the odds of the draw and whatnot, it seems like HBG and Cailin got exceptional draws.

Mercer: You can’t forget Alexis either! She lucked out here too getting one of the last three spots!

Kawajai: The clock is on one more time as entry number 10 is set to come out soon!

10…9…8…7…6….5…4……3….2…1…

BUZZ!

(“Damage” by Fit for Rivals blasts through the stadium as Alexis Deimos stands at the entrance ramp, tossing her goggles aside before sprinting down to the ring.)

Mercer: Another nutcase making her way down!

Kawajai: And an effective wrestler. She nearly had her career ended at the hands of Tarah Nova a few weeks ago and now is back, hungry, fresh and eager to win her first EAW Championship! She immediately goes for Erica Ford as soon as she enters, raking her eyes as the battle continues! Haruna and Angela are battling in one corner, Angela being caught with some vicious knees to the midsection! Erica is being pushed against the ropes by Alexis, trying to survive here! Meanwhile in the other corner on the far side Azumi and Stephanie Matsuda continue their battle.

Stew-O: I know Mercer said that Erica is used to finishing 2nd, but we should commend her for this effort that she’s shown here today thus far, She’s been out here since the beginning and is still in there fighting.

Mercer: …you guys like giving people gold stars for trying, don’t you?

Kawajai: Mercer’s comments aside, Erica is in trouble here as she’s teetering on the brink of elimination, but Azumi disengages long enough from Stephanie to sprint over and save her partner and send Diemos into the canvas after a hard shoulder block!

Stew-O: Stephanie back behind her looking to attack from behind.

Erica: AZUMI…DUCK!

(Azumi ducks right before Erica lands a vicious superkick right to the jaw of Matsuda, dropping her to the canvas.)

Kawajai: Did that superkick find the mark or what! That impact probably could have been heard in Indianapolis! Shinsei Domei working together to hang in there and survive! Haruna has Angela up on the ropes again…trying to eliminate her…. SHE’S ALMOST UP AND OUT…BUT NO! SHE CLUTCHES ONTO HARUNA WITH A HEADSCISSORS AND DRAGS HER OVER THE ROPES INSTEAD! HARUNA IS OUT! SHE IS-

Mercer: NO NO NO! SHE’S NOT OUT! HARUNA GRABBED THE BOTTOM ROPE AND KEPT HERSELF IN ON THE APRON! BOTH WOMEN SLIDE BACK IN AND KEEP THEMSELVES ALIVE!

Stew-O: Close call here in this match, and a tremendous display of agility from Angela, I have to say! Countdown clock is on again and now we’ve got some absolute cannons still about to come out here, either the Specialists Champion or Heart Break Gal, someone who many consider the best vixen in EAW despite not currently holding any hardware is on the way!

10….9….8….7….6….5……4….3….2….1…

BUZZZZZ!

(“King of the World” by Porcelain and the Tramps plays as Heart Break Gal makes her way out to the ring to a decidedly mixed reaction from the fans, The EAW Vixens Champion Eris LeCava at her side, her title belt draped over her shoulder.)

Mercer: Uh-oh. Business has picked up, my friends! The greatest Vixen of all time is out here and she brought back up!

Stew-O: Armed with a great draw and a great partner, Heart Break Gal enters the Specialists Rampage at number eleven! She slides in and stays on alert as the other Vixens battle amongst each other! She sees Angela just now sliding back into the ring and attacks like a woman possessed, grabbing onto her, choking and doing everything she can to take the oxygen out of her! Haruna getting up to her feet and helping! Erica and Azumi put a stop to the double team! Azumi battering Haruna with hard shoot kicks! Erica staggering the Heartbreak Gal with vicious chops to the chest! One after another…Machine gun style! She finally lands one big one and HBG is in some trouble!

Erica whips HBG into the opposite corner! She…. oh come on!

(The crowd boos as Eris trips her quickly before looking away as if nothing happened.)

Kawajai: Eris is out here as an insurance policy for her mentor it would appear! Stephanie Matsuda is up on her feet finally, clearing the cobwebs as Alexis tries to get Erica up again to try to eliminate her! Stephanie comes in and starts beating on both women! I think I’ve heard the term ‘clubberin’ used on Battleground once or twice lately and this is the epitome of ‘clubberin’.

Mercer: Stew…what time do we have to have this idiot in bed again? He’s flying off the handle again.

Stew-O: HBG attacking Erica from behind as the carnage continues here. There is only one entry left and she will be making her way out here in the very near future, the EAW Specialists Champion herself with the luck of the draw landing into the sweetest spot available!

10….9….8…7….6….5……4….3…….2……1

BUZZZ!

(“Confident” Demi Lovato plays as Cailin sprints down to the ring to complete the field to a roaring ovation from the crowd.)

Kawajai: The final entrant into the field, the defending Champion! Cailin Dillon is in and all the other Vixens are on notice! HBG goes looking for a leg up on the champion and gets taken down with a hard punch to the face! Haruna goes in next and is taken down with a dropkick! Angela tries to get at her and she’s taken down by a DDT! Cailin Dillon has come out like a house of fire and she is ready to retain the title!

Stew-O: Alexis with an attack from behind, Alexis pulling her in…looking for a Power bomb or something I think…. but Cailin counters with a back body drop! Alexis goes flying over the ropes and onto the ring apron! She gets up to her feet…wait a second…. Stephanie…Cailin…. Erica Ford…. Azumi…All looking at each other and nodding for a moment…. TANDEM SHOOT KICKS FROM ERICA AND AZUMI TO THE GUT OF ALEXIS…. DOUBLETEAM SUPERKICK FROM CAILIN AND STEPHANIE AND ALEXIS HAS BEEN DISMISSED!

Ring Announcer: Alexis Diemos has been eliminated!

Kawajai: We’re down to seven as HBG attacks Azumi Goto from behind trying to eliminate her but Erica cuts her off and attacks! The two members of the Formation in the ring turn their sites on Haruna, who sees the two women staring her down….and I think “Deer in Headlights” may be the best descriptive phrase for it! She ducks out of the ring and the two Formation members give chase before Haruna slides back in. Azumi Goto trying to attack Haruna but Haruna sees her coming and catches her with a spinning backfist! That one stunned her…. MARAWU SEKAI! AROUND THE WORLD! CONNECTS AND AZUMI FALLS TO THE CANVAS! Erica tries to intervene but is held back by HBG, who has her in a chickenwing now!

Stew-O: Cailin and Stephanie slide back into the ring though and now here they go attacking Haruna! Each one landing kicks, stomps, punches, whatever they feel like! They both have Haruna up now, trying to eliminate her HBG over trying to help them out but Haruna manages to finger poke both Stephanie and HBG in the eyes and wiggle herself free. Azumi is back up to her feet now and she’s chasing after Haruna but Cailin cuts off Azumi and throws her out over the top rope! She’s on the apron but is on the verge of elimination! Erica trying to reach out and pull her back in but HBG grabs her in a waistlock and Eris, ERIS ON THE OUTSIDE PULLS AZUMI OFF THE RING APRON AND TO THE FLOOR! THE QUEEN OF PURORESU IS GONE!

Ring Announcer: Azumi Goto is eliminated!
Kawajai: Erica is furious now as HBG finally let’s go! She’s running towards where Eris is standing, screaming at the Vixens Champion as she leans onto the ropes! CAILIN DILLON GRABS ERICA AND DUMPS HER OUT! ERICA LOST HER COOL AND IT’S COST HER BIG TIME! BOTH MEMBERS OF SHINSEI DOMEI ARE GONE!

Ring Announcer: Erica Ford has been Eliminated!

Kawajai: Both Erica and Azumi are having to be restrained for different reasons by ringside officials. Azumi wants to tear off Eris’s head, and Erica is trying to get back into the ring and take it to Cailin Dillon! She took some issue with how she was eliminated, I have to say.

Mercer: She should take issue with herself for being a damn fool and caring more about her partner than herself. This is a SINGLES title, not a tag team title. Only one person can hold it at a time!

Stew-O: Back in the ring though, Matsuda and Haruna continuing their war, HBG trying to Eliminate Angela Salvetti. Cailin turns her attention back to ringside action as Erica and Azumi are finally escorted from the ringside area. She sprints over to Stephanie and Haruna, trying to help her partner eliminate The Pride of the Vixens Division! Eris jumping on the ring apron again! SOMEONE GET HER OUT OF HERE! Cailin goes over and has a swing…. but Eris jumps down and dodges it…. HBG! HBG FROM BEHIND SCOOPS CAILIN UP OVER AND OUT! CAILIN TRYING TO GRAB ONTO THE ROPES BUT SHE Can’t! SHE TUMBLES TO THE ARENA FLOOR TO THE ABSOLUTE SHOCK OF THIS CAPACITY CROWD!

Ring Announcer: …………. Cailin Dillon has been eliminated!

Mercer: OH MY GOD! WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A NEW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! THE CHAMPION HAS BEEN DETHRONED! ALL IT TOOK WAS ONE BAD MOMENT AND NOW WE’RE DOWN TO FOUR!

Kawajai: I’m in shock, but that’s where we stand right now. Cailin Dillon, who has valiantly defended the championship nearly half a year, has been dethroned in this match. Now, who will be the third Specialists Championship? Will Haruna regain her honor and claim the title a second time? Can Angela Salvetti win her first title? Will Stephanie Matsuda keep the title in the Formation stable?

Stew-O: How about HBG? She could be the first person in EAW history to have held both the Specialists and Vixens Titles!

Kawajai: Angela Salvetti on the brink of Elimination…. HBG has her teetering on the ropes…. Eris coming back over there and grabbing Angela by the hair as she is almost over the top rope! Stephanie trying to disengage Haruna to go do something about this but is cut off with a vicious chop from Sakazaki! This HBG/Eris tandem eliminates ANOTHER OBSTACLE IN HBG’S WAY AS ANGELA TUMBLES TO THE FLOOR! THE ITALLIAN PRINCESS IS OUT!

Ring Announcer: Angela Salvetti is eliminated!

Mercer: OH MY GOD!

Stew-O: We are down to three! Haruna Sakazaki, Stephanie Matsuda, Heart Break Gal, one of them is going to leave Notre Dame Stadium as champion!

Kawajai: Stephanie looks around and sees what she faces now, one of her longtime rivals, arguably the greatest of all time in HBG and the Vixens Champion at ringside making a travesty of this event! Stephanie goes charging into Haruna, trying to batter her but is attacked by HBG as well and the two of them work her over, but HBG is fighting Haruna too! This war is for the gold! Eris…OH FOR GOODNESS SAKE CAN SOMEONE GET HER OUT OF THERE!?

Mercer: What a brilliant Strategy from HBG! Her insurance policy is the woman at the top of the EAW Vixens Division! What else could you ask for!

Stew-O: This isn’t strategy! It’s freaking attempted grand larceny! Eris clutching onto her championship belt as HBG lands a kick to the midsection of Haruna and now has Stephanie isolated…. She grabs her and is directing Eris to nail her…. ERIS COMING IN WITH THE BELT…. BUT SHE HIT HBG DIRECTLY IN THE FACE! SHE HIT THE WRONG TARGET!

Mercer: NO! MY GOD NO! SOMEONE GET OUT HERE AND HELP HER! IMPACT! WHERE THE HECK ARE YOU!?

Stew-O: ERIS IS IN SHOCK BUT SHE’S HIT WITH A DROPKICK FROM CLOUD THEN A SHOULDER TACKLE FROM HARUNA! WHAT THE HELL…IS THAT MADISON ON THE OUTSIDE!? MADISON KALINE IS MAKING HER WAY THROUGH THE CROWD! SHE’LL CHALLENGE FOR THE VIXENS TITLE LATER TONIGHT! SHES GOT HER HANDS ON ERIS AS THEY BRAWL CHAOTICALLY ON THE OUTSIDE!

Kawajai: In the ring…Stephanie and Haruna both pick up the dizzied HBG AND TOSS HER UP OVER AND OUT! THE HALL OF FAMER IS GONE!

Ring Announcer: Heart Break Gal has been eliminated!

Kawajai: Security is finally out here, doing what they should have done and escorting Eris away from ringside, keeping her separated from her challenger Madison! HBG is just leaning up against the security railing with a look of absolute disgust on her face right now. It appears her plans to claim the Specialists title have backfired. She’ll have to try her luck again in the Grand Rampage.

Mercer: Forget about that now! Look at this!

Stew-O: Stephanie and Haruna are facing off in the center of the ring! Haruna’s got a busted lip, Matsuda may have a black eye after some of the blows she’s taken. If we were going to draw it up with two people left standing, we couldn’t have hoped for a more heated pairing than this. Former partners, former lovers and now bitter, bitter enemies!

Kawajai: Haruna lands a blow first, striking with a quick jab…then a barrage of vicious palm strikes backing up the Blasian Beauty. Haruna relentless with her assault! Driving shoulder block tackles to the gut, trying to soften up Matsuda. She gets her on the top turnbuckle! Cloud, Stephanie, I’m sorry, has to be exhausted now. Haruna going up to the top. No….NO….NO! DON’T DO THIS…HARUNA LIFTS MATSUDA UP……. SUPERPLEX!

Mercer: Haruna’s gonna do it! Haruna all you have to do is get up and throw her out of the ring! It’s all over!

Kawajai: Haruna is up on her feet…. she grabs Matsuda, well, almost scraping her off the canvas at this point and throws her out…. THIS ONE IS OVER! HARUNA HAS DONE IT!

(Haruna lifts her arms up in celebration, turning her back to Matsuda…who has held on to the bottom rope, clinging for survival.)

Stew-O: NO! HARUNA NEEDS TO TURN AROUND! STEPHANIE IS STILL IN IT! STEPHANIE SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING AS QUICKLY AS SHE CAN! A DROPKICK STAGGERS HARUNA SENDING HER INTO THE ROPES! STEPHANIE BACK UP TO HER FEET QUICKLY, SPINNING HEEL KICK SENDS HARUNA OUT OF THE RING AND TO THE FLOOR! ITS ALL OVER! STEPHANIE MATSUDA HAS WON IT!

(DING DING DING!!)

(“Headhunt” By Okamoto’s plays as Stephanie collapses to her knees in the ring, being presented the EAW Specialists Championship, a stunned Haruna looking on at ringside in disbelief.)

Ring Announcer: Ladies and gentleman, the winner of this contest and NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW EAW SPECIALSTS CHAMPION…STEPHANIE MATSUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDA!

Kawajai: PAYBACK IS SWEET! IN TORONTO AT THE VIXENS CUP, HARUNA KNOCKED STEPHANIE OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT IN THE FIRST ROUND IN CONTROVERSIAL FASHION! FAST FORWARD TO TODAY AND STEPHANIE IS THE LAST ONE STANDING, THIS TIME WINNING GOLD IN THE PROCESS! THE TITLE BELT STAYS IN THE FORMATION, BUT IT’S CHANGING WAISTS! MATSUDA WINS IT!

Stew-O: You know that with everything that she’s been through lately, the training with Carlos Rosso, the issues that she’s had with Haruna in particular, you know it’s got to feel good for Stephanie to hold that title. It may be bittersweet and awkward in the Formation Camp for a few days, but Stephanie Matsuda is the new champion.

Mercer:…..I’m speechless.

Kawajai: And that’s a good thing for everyone involved. Stephanie leaves Grand Rampage 9 by winning her very first EAW Championship!

( BREAK FOR SPONSORS )

(A match graphic is shown for Scott Oasis facing Zack Crash and Tig Kelly for his EAW World Heavyweight Championship as the crowd roars in ovation for the next fight.)

(Video package plays showcasing Scott Oasis’ victory against Brian Daniels for the the World Heavyweight Championship, the destruction that Omerta has caused on Dynasty with multiple assaults on Tig Kelly and removing recent commentator Deadprez, the alliance between Lucian Black and Tig Kelly to combat Omerta resulting in Tig winning a chance at the championship against Scott Oasis, Zack Crash inserting himself into the championship match during the contract signing to turn it into a triple threat, and Omerta continuing to show their dominance throughout the weeks.)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall… AND IS FOR THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

(“Bad Guy” by Eminem blasts from the speakers while Scott Oasis steps out to the crowd wearing the World Heavyweight Championship around his waist as he wears a street jacket with Omerta patches attached on them.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from Baltimore, Maryland… weighing in at 260 pounds… he is the EAW WOORRRLLLLDDDDD HEEAAAVVVVYYYWWEEEEIIIGGGHHHHTTTT CHHAAAMMPPPIIOOONNNNN… ”The Code of Strength”… “The Iceman” SCCOOOTTTTTTTTT OAASSSIIIISSSSS!!!

Stew-O: IT’S TIME! This is the fight that we have all been waiting to see go down! Scott Oasis, our World Heavyweight Champion, will step into the ring with his leader Zack Crash and his current rival Tig Kelly! Everything is on the line for this man, and the question is will we see this man walk out remaining the champion!

Matt Ryder: He would be the best bet, bro! The strength and destructive nature that won him the championship inside of a Barbed-Wire Steel Cage with also having a member of Omerta standing at his side with Zack Crash! You can almost guarantee that Scott Oasis will walk out of this match with the EAW World Heavyweight Championship!

(“Step Up (I’m On It)” by Maylene and The Sons of Disaster fills the arena as Tig Kelly sprints out to the stage with the crowd now in an uproar for his arrival with him donning a black denim jacket, turning around to show off an Irish flag with frayed lines in between the colors.)

Ring Announcer: Making his way to the ring, he is from Galway, Ireland… weighing in at 212 pounds…”The Ender” TIIIGGGGG KEELLLLLLLYYYYY!!!

Stew-O: Well, that will not happen if this man has anything to do about it, Matt! Tig Kelly has been standing up to this Omerta faction since before their inception! Tig Kelly has been beaten down, he’s gotten some redemption, but the ultimate retribution will be taking the World Heavyweight Championship tonight!

Matt Ryder: He may have been fighting Omerta since then, but what has that gotten him? A new friend in Lucian Black? That’s it. The rest of it has been him being destroyed by the most dominant faction you can think of, bro! Let me let you in on something, Stew! You may want The Ender to end Omerta, but the reality is that he will simply be put down himself at the end of the night!

(“Outlaw” by Disciple echoes throughout the arena with Zack Crash entering the stage in his ring gear as he motions to the back where Brody Sparks joins him as they join together by the arm as they both walk to the ring.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing their opponent, he is from Charleston, West Virginia… accompanied to the ring by Brody Sparks… he weighs in at 225 pounds… “The Kingpin” ZAACCCKKKKK CRRAAASSSSHHHHH!!!

Stew-O: The Kingpin himself, the mastermind behind this whole operation to take over Dynasty from right under management, you don’t have to be Einstein to know what his intentions are in this match! He’s making sure that his investment will be protected at the end of the day, even to the point of where if Scott Oasis cannot fight, he will take the world championship for himself!

Matt Ryder: Hey, if the man is smart enough to give the hottest commentator on the market a job by replacing that loser Deadprez, he knows what he’s doing! This man has my full support if he becomes the main man of Dynasty and reigns as World Heavyweight Champion, that’s a fact!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Matt Ryder: LET’S GET IT ON! THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP IS ON THE LINE AND WE ARE IN FOR AN EPIC CONFRONTATION! Scott Oasis and Zack Crash already walk over to each other, talking about their battle plan, as Tig Kelly stands and prepares for their eventual strike to him! The stunning Brody Sparks stands at ringside, cheering on her fellow Omerta members, and let me tell you THAT HOESKI IS LOOKING MIGHTY FINE!

Stew-O: Ugh… Matt, get your head on the match and not the “hoeskis”. Anyway BOTH SCOTT OASIS AND ZACK CRASH RUSH RIGHT TO TIG KELLY AND POWER HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER! Oasis and Crash start to lay into Tig with the strikes and jabs, trying to weaken him the best they can! These men are like vultures PICKING THE ENDER APART WITH EVERY STRIKE THAT IS THROWN TO HIM!

Matt Ryder: Damn, what I would give to have a night with– OH SORRY, BRO! Scott Oasis and Zack Crash are still taking it to Tig Kelly BUT THE ENDER STARTS TO STRIKE BACK WITH STIFF ELBOWS! HE’S TRYING TO FIGHT HIS WAY OUT OF THE CORNER! That’s a smart man because if he wants to stand a chance in this match, he desperately needs to get out of the corner!

Stew-O: Tig Kelly continues his offensive and is able to get himself out of the corner BUT IT LASTS ONLY A SECOND AS SCOTT OASIS SHOULDER THRUSTS HIM RIGHT BACK INTO THE CORNER AS THE ASSAULT WITH ZACK CRASH AT HIS SIDE CONTINUES! This is just pure punishment they are taking out onto Zack Crash! They are showing that if you mess with Omerta, this will be your fate!

Matt Ryder: That’s right, bro! I mean, you saw firsthand what these men are capable of doing, and they are just getting started with Tig Kelly! LOOK AT THIS! ZACK CRASH IS SHOWING TIG KELLY WHERE HE SHOULD BE AS HE USES HIS BOOT TO CHOKE HIM OUT BY PRESSING IT ON HIS THROAT! That’s right, Crash! Choke him out! Choke that rebellious Irishman out!

Stew-O: It’s not enough that this match is basically a two-on-one handicap match, but Zack Crash has to put insult on it with the foot choke while walking out to the center of the ring to mock Tig Kelly! Listen to the crowd! They don’t want to witness this destruction, but Scott Oasis lifts Tig up to his feet as it’s bound to continue! OASIS WHIPS TIG ACROSS THE RING AS HE HITS THE TURNBUCKLE HARD ON HIS SPINE! Tig bounces off the turnbuckle RIGHT INTO A LARIAT BY CRASH AS HE DUMPS TIG TO THE OUTSIDE ON THE FLOOR!

Matt Ryder: WOW! LOOK! TIG KELLY LANDS ON HIS FEET AS HE SEES ZACK CRASH JUST RELISHING IN THIS! TIG GRABS CRASH BY THE ANKLE AND PULLS HIM OUT OF THE RING AS HE STARTS TO GET HIMSELF SOME! TIG IS JUST LIGHTING ZACK UP WITH THE ELBOW STRIKES AND KICKS! Tig Kelly is just taking it to him RIGHT BEFORE THROWING CRASH RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE! CRASH HIT THAT BARRICADE IN A BAD WAY!

Stew-O: It almost looked like a car crash, if you ask me, Matt! Scott Oasis makes his way to the outside BUT TIG KELLY JUST TURNS TO BARRAGE TOWARDS HIM WITH THE ELBOW STRIKES AND FURIOUS KICKS! Oasis is forced onto the apron BUT TIG WON’T STOP AS HE STARTS FIRING STIFF KICKS RIGHT INTO HIS CHEST! THE COMBINATION OF THE KICKS STRIKING HIS CHEST AND BEING HIT AGAINST THE APRON IS A SMART WAY FROM TIG TO WEAR DOWN HIS OPPONENT!

Matt Ryder: Zack Crash starts to pick himself up from that toss into the barricade BUT TIG KELLY NOTICES AS HE RUNS IN TO KEEP HIM DOWN WITH THE RUNNING DROPKICK RIGHT IN HIS FACE! CRASH ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! TIG FLIES RIGHT OVER THE BARRICADE AND LANDS ALL OVER THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA INTO CHAIRS, THE RING BELL, AND EVEN THE PEOPLE THAT ARE SITTING OVER THERE! BAD MOVE THERE, TIG!

Stew-O: Yeah, that could definitely cost Tig Kelly the entire match! That single mistake could very well put an end to hopes and dreams of Tig becoming World Heavyweight Champion here tonight! Zack Crash rises back to his feet with Scott Oasis joining him as Crash pulls Tig out of the wreckage and takes him to ringside as he shoves him RIGHT INTO A DISCUS LARIAT BY OASIS! OASIS NEARLY KNOCKED HIS HEAD RIGHT OFF OF HIS SHOULDERS WITH THAT ONE!

Matt Ryder: BRO, THAT GAVE ME WHIPLASH FROM SITTING RIGHT HERE AND WATCHING IT! Zack Crash and Scott Oasis simply laugh at the fallen Tig Kelly, mocking the crowd that has turned against them and joking about him actually standing a chance, before Oasis grabs Tig Kelly to pick him back up to his feet as Crash goes to grab something near the timekeeper’s area!

Stew-O: What evil intentions could be in the mind of The Kingpin? He makes his way back to Tig Kelly, ordering Scott Oasis to hold his head up WITH ZACK CRASH DRIVING A MICROPHONE RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF TIG! REMEMBER, THIS IS A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH! NO DISQUALIFICATION AND NO COUNT-OUTS IN THIS ONE! EVEN THOUGH I HATE IT, IT’S NOT ILLEGAL!

Matt Ryder: THAT’S RIGHT, BROSKIS! ALL OF IT’S LEGAL! That’s why this match is going to be a true test of endurance and survival for The Ender! Zack Crash tells Scott Oasis something as he tosses Tig Kelly into the ring like a rag doll! Both men slide back into the ring as Oasis lifts Tig up AND DRIVES HIM RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER WITH A RUNNING SHOULDER THRUST! THEY ARE GOING RIGHT BACK TO THE CORNER AND ASSAULT TACTIC!

Stew-O: Zack Crash joins back with Scott Oasis as they both grab Tig Kelly LAUNCHING HIM ACROSS THE RING RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! TIG HITS THAT TURNBUCKLE HARD AS HE IS ONLY ABLE TO LIE BACK ON THE TURNBUCKLE AND NOTHING MORE! Crash nods at Oasis as Oasis grabs him AND LAUNCHES HIM TOWARDS TIG! OASIS JUST GAVE HIM SOME SERIOUS MOMENTUM TO STRIKE HARD!

Matt Ryder: NO! TIG KELLY WAS PLAYING POSSUM AS HE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AS ZACK CRASH FLIES THROUGH THE TURNBUCKLE AS HITS THE IRON POST WITH HIS SHOULDER! NO! NO! NO! NO! SCOTT OASIS GET FURIOUS ABOUT THIS AND RUSHES TIG KELLY! TIG WAS WAITING FOR HIM AS HE STARTS STRIKING WITH HIS ELBOWS AND KICKS ONCE AGAIN! TIG KELLY IS MOUNTING A COMEBACK RIGHT HERE AGAINST OMERTA!

Stew-O: Scott Oasis is just getting destroyed by these shots as Tig Kelly takes the opportunity to run the ropes RETURNING WITH A LEG LARIAT TO BRING OASIS DOWN TO THE MAT! Scott Oasis rolls out of the ring as Zack Crash starts to pull himself out of the turnbuckle and stand back up! Tig turns to notice this AS HE SPRINTS AHEAD AND HITS THE RUNNING CORNER DROPKICK RIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF CRASH!

Matt Ryder: Tig Kelly rolls back to his feet as Zack Crash is still standing! Tig runs back to the other side of the ring AND SPRINTS BACK WITH A SECOND RUNNING CORNER DROPKICK RIGHT IN THE SAME SPOT HE HIT AS BEFORE! THIS TIME CRASH COLLAPSES TO THE CANVAS AS TIG IS JUST FIRED UP AS THE CROWD IS JUST CHEERING FOR THIS COMEBACK HE HAS MOUNTED!

Stew-O: Tig Kelly walks over to the corner as he begins to stomp on the canvas REACHING OUT AS HE CALLS FOR ZACK CRASH TO STAND UP! IS HE WANTING IT? HE IS AS HE MAKES THE CUT-THROAT TAUNT TO SIGNAL FOR THE MAFIA KICK! THE CROWD IS IN AN UPROAR AS HE WANTS TO HIT IT ALL! NO! THE CROWD SHUTS DOWN TO AN ARRAY OF DISGRUNTLED BOOS AS SCOTT OASIS PULLED HIM BY HIS LEGS TO THE OUTSIDE AS HE JUST SAVED CRASH FROM POSSIBLY EATING A BOOT AND SAVING HIS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!

Matt Ryder: THAT WAS A CLOSE ONE, BRO! GOOD THING THE WORLD CHAMPION WAS SITTING ON THE OUTSIDE FOR HIM! Scott Oasis lifts Tig Kelly up over his shoulders as he displays that immense strength of his LAUNCHING TIG FORWARD INTO THE IRON POST WITH THE LAWN DART! WAIT! TIG FLOATS DOWN TO HIS FEET AS HE SHOVES OASIS FACE-FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE POST! HOW IN THE HELL IS TIG KELLY ABLE TO DO THIS?

Stew-O: Just like how he was able to pick up the victory against Zack Crash for this opportunity, Tig Kelly just keeps on going and surviving! Tig enters back into the ring BUT CRASH RUSHES IN FOR THE RUNNING KNEE TO SET UP FOR THE SWINGING NECKBREAKER! TIG KELLY SPINS OUT OF IT AS HE HOOKS CRASH FROM BEHIND! BACKSTABBER! NO! CRASH HOLDS THE ROPES TO KEEP HIM ON HIS FEET AS TIG DROPS BACK ON THE CANVAS!

Matt Ryder: IT’S THE INSTINCTS OF A FORMER WORLD CHAMPION THAT ALLOWED ZACK CRASH TO NOT GET HIT WITH THAT! Tig Kelly rolls up to his feet BUT IS MET WITH THE DISCUS ELBOW RIGHT INTO THE JAW! GOOD NIGHT, ENDER! TIG KELLY JUST DROPS FROM THAT VINTAGE DEMON MANEUVER AS CRASH LOOKS TO THE TURNBUCKLE! Crash walks over towards it and makes the climb towards the top rope as he taunts FLIPPING BACK FOR THE DIVING MOONSAULT! HE HITS ALL OF IT RIGHT INTO THE ABDOMEN OF TIG KELLY AS HE HOOKS THE LEG! ZACK CRASH COULD BE CROWNED THE NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Stew-O: TIG KELLY GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Zack Crash shakes his head right before mounting on top of him STRIKING HARD WITH PUNCHES RIGHT IN HIS FACE! Can you believe, Matt, that Crash just made the first pin attempt of this match? After all the punishment and destruction that has happened already, this is the first time we have seen him go for the pin to try and finish the match!

Matt Ryder: It shows that this match has been all about destroying Tig Kelly and that these men want to break each other to the point to where they’re almost unable to stand! Zack Crash rolls Tig over as he hooks his arms LOCKING HIM IN THE CRASH N’ BURN! HE HAS HIM IN THE FULL NELSON CAMEL CLUTCH! CRASH HAS IT LOCKED IN TIGHT AS THEY ARE ALREADY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH THIS HOLD! THIS COULD BE WHAT ENDS IT RIGHT HERE, BRO! ZACK CRASH COULD BECOME THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION RIGHT HERE!

Stew-O: TIG KELLY IS SCRATCHING AND CLAWING TOWARDS THE BOTTOM ROPE TO HELP HIM OUT OF THE HOLD AS ZACK CRASH IS JUST PULLING BACK ON THE SUBMISSION! Tig Kelly is making his way to the ropes, but will he do it before the pain that this hold is making him go through becomes too much for him to handle? Tig Kelly pushes and fights to make it to the bottom rope, using whatever energy he has to get out of this predicament!

Matt Ryder: HE… HE… HE… HE GETS TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! ZACK CRASH IS PULLING ON THE HOLD! TIG IS PULLING TO TRY AND GET TO HIS FEET! HE’S ABLE TO GET TO A KNEE! BOOT TO THE BACK OF TIG AS CRASH STANDS ABOVE HIM! Crash drags Tig away from the ropes as he hooks him by the arms again PICKING HIM UP AS HE LOOKS FOR CHAOS REIGNS!

(Static starts to play on the titantron, getting the attention of Zack Crash, as he throws Tig Kelly aside… )

Stew-O: What the hell is going on?

Matt Ryder: I don’t even know! However, Zack Crash sure seems to be interested just like our fans here tonight!

(The static finally ceases as a deep robotic voice speaks as the crowd hushes to hear… )

Voice: You assumed you were done with me… Assumed that your sins wouldn’t catch up to you… but they have. Watching from the outside… I have watched your corruption take hold. However, this corruption will no longer stain Dynasty… for your deeds will not go… UNPUNISHED!

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgzIVvFkyRU plays… )

Stew-O: COULD IT BE? IS IT REALLY? MY EYES MUST BE DECEIVING ME? IT IS! JACOB SENN HAS RETURNED TO EAW! ZACK CRASH CANNOT BELIEVE IT! IT’S LIKE HE’S SEEING A GHOST RETURN FROM THE GRAVE! ZACK CRASH WAS CONFIDENT THAT JACOB WAS DEAD AND BURIED, BUT HE HAS RETURNED!

Matt Ryder: I… I… I’M JUST STUNNED! Jacob Senn has returned to EAW and he’s doesn’t look to happy with the man standing in the middle of the ring! Jacob holds his signature barbed-wire steel chair in his hands as he climbs up the steel steps, removes his hood, and stares with searing anger directly to Zack Crash! Jacob starts to enter the ring BUT ZACK CRASH RUSHES FORWARD TO ATTACK HIM FIRST!

Stew-O: JACOB SENN DUCKS UNDER THE FIST THAT FLIES TOWARDS HIM AS ZACK CRASH TURNS AROUND! CHAIR SHOT! JACOB STRIKES WITH THE BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR AS HE FLIPS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND FALLS TO THE FLOOR! Jacob slides back outside and drops the chair as he grabs Crash THROWING HIM RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS AS THEY EXPLODE FROM HIM HITTING THEM! Jacob Senn is back as he’s taking it to the man who put him out of action for the last four months!

Matt Ryder: Jacob Senn grabs Zack Crash as he hoists him out of the corner THROWING HIM LIKE A RAG DOLL RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE! Crash collapses back down to the floor with Jacob returning back to his barbed-wire steel chair! He returns back to Crash as he tries to get back up CRACKING THE BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF ZACK! HE’S BUSTED OPEN! THE KINGPIN IS BUSTED WIDE OPEN AS BLOOD STARTS TO TRICKLE DOWN HIS BROW!

Stew-O: JACOB SENN ISN’T FINISHED YET! HE BASHES THE STEEL CHAIR TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AGAIN! HE DOES IT OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! CONSTANTLY TAKING SHOTS WITH THE CHAIR! I THINK WE’RE AT THE TENTH SHOT AS HE’S STILL GOING AT IT! THE UNBRIDLED FURY OF JACOB SENN IS JUST TAKING HOLD AS HE CONTINUES TO SLAM THAT STEEL CHAIR AGAINST THE HEAD OF ZACK CRASH!

Matt Ryder: I’m just going to assume he’s hit about 20 or 25 steel chair shots, warping the chair and breaking the barbed-wire that was wrapped around it, as Jacob Senn wipes his brow and grabs Zack Crash by the leg! He drags Crash over and up the ramp, with a blood trail following the carcass of Crash, as they leave the arena and go to the backstage! Zack Crash has just been taken out of the equation it seems, turning this match into a singles contest between Tig Kelly and the World Heavyweight Champion Scott Oasis!

Stew-O: Speaking of Scott Oasis, HE’S BACK IN THE MATCH AS HE ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING TO THE FALLEN TIG KELLY! Tig took a lot of punishment from Zack Crash before Jacob Senn came and took him out! Scott Oasis can’t let that get to him, however, he needs to focus and retaining the World Heavyweight Championship! Scott grabs Tig and brings him up to his feet and throws him to the ropes! Tig rebounds and returns RIGHT INTO THE SPINNING SIDE SLAM BY OASIS!

Matt Ryder: TORNADO REVERSE DDT! TIG KELLY SPUN OUT OF THE SPINNING SIDE SLAM AND TURNED IT INTO A TORNADO REVERSE DDT TO DROP SCOTT OASIS WHERE HE STOOD! Tig Kelly crawls on top of Scott Oasis HOOKING THE LEG AS HE HOPES THAT THIS WILL BE ENOUGH TO PUT AWAY THE WORLD CHAMPION!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Stew-O: SCOTT OASIS KICKS OUT OF THE PIN! Tig Kelly looks emotionally drained from that failed pin attempt, but he needs to keep the pressure up against Scott Oasis! Scott starts to bring himself back to a standing position as Tig joins him AS HE STRIKES OASIS WITH A STIFF ELBOW STRIKE! SCOTT RETURNS THE FAVOR WITH A SOUTHPAW JAB RIGHT TO HIS JAW AS HE STEPS BACK A STEP! THESE TWO ARE NOW GOING IN A BATTLE OF STRIKES! WHO WILL GET THE UPPER HAND AT THE END OF THIS?

Matt Ryder: TIG KELLY STRIKES OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE FACE OF SCOTT OASIS AS THAT’S THE BLOW TO SEND HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS! Tig sprints towards the ropes LEAPING IN THE AIR WITH THE SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! HE LANDS IT RIGHT INTO THE BODY OF OASIS AS HE QUICKLY HOOKS THE LEG FOR ANOTHER PIN ATTEMPT ON THE ICEMAN!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Stew-O: SCOTT OASIS POPS HIS SHOULDER UP WITH ANOTHER KICK OUT! Once more, Tig Kelly couldn’t put him away just yet! Tig Kelly starts to lift Scott back up… BUT THIS SHE-DEVIL BRODY SPARKS WALKS OVER TO THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA? WHAT DOES SHE THINKS SHE’S DOING? SHE… SHE HAS TAKEN THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP FROM THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA! WHAT DOES SHE PLAN TO DO WITH THAT?

Matt Ryder: Man, I thought she was about to come over here and see me… (CRY2) However, Tig Kelly has Scott Oasis up GOING FOR THAT BACKSTABBER! BRODY SLIDES THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP INTO THE RING! SCOTT GRABS IT AS TIG LEAPS! BAM! OASIS NAILS TIG IN THE FACE WITH THE GOLDEN CHAMPIONSHIP AS TIG FALLS OVER! SCOTT OASIS THROWS THE CHAMPIONSHIP BACK TO BRODY SPARKS AS SHE SIMPLY GIVES THAT SEXY SINISTER SMILE OF HERS! WHEW!

Stew-O: CAN YOU PLEASE STOP, MATT? THIS COULD BE THE END OF THIS MATCH AND YOU ARE TOO BUSY STARING AT THIS EVIL WOMAN THAT MIGHT HAVE COST TIG KELLY THE CHAMPIONSHIP! SCOTT OASIS DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS THE LEG OF TIG KELLY AS HE ORDERS THE REFEREE TO START THE COUNT!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!

Matt Ryder: NO! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! TIG KELLY JUST GOT HIS SHOULDER UP! SCOTT OASIS IS LIVID AS HE JUMPS UP AND GRABS THE REFEREE BY HIS SHIRT! HE IS SCREAMING RIGHT INTO HIS FACE ABOUT GETTING THE COUNT RIGHT! Scott just shoves the referee away before going to the turnbuckle SCREAMING AT TIG TO GET UP AS HE WANTS THE SPEAR! Tig pushes on the canvas, barely able to stand AS SCOTT OASIS RIPS THROUGH HIM WITH THE SPEAR! SCOTT OASIS DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS HIS LEG FOR ANOTHER PIN AS HE STARTS AT THE REFEREE MAKING THE COUNT!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRREEE!!

Stew-O: TIG KELLY DOES IT AGAIN! HE WILL NOT GO DOWN! SCOTT OASIS GOES RIGHT BACK TO REFEREE AND SCREAMS AT HIM ABOUT MAKING THE COUNT! IF I DIDN’T KNOW BETTER, OASIS MIGHT DROP THE REFEREE ON HIS HEAD IF THIS CONTINUES! Scott Oasis goes right back to the turnbuckle and lines Tig Kelly up WAITING FOR HIM TO GET RIGHT WHERE HE WANTS HIM FOR THE PUNT KICK!

Matt Ryder: SCOTT OASIS IS GOING TO KNOCK HIS HEAD RIGHT OFF HIS SHOULDERS AS TIG KELLY STARTS TO MAKE IT BACK TO HIS FEET! SCOTT RUSHES FORWARD! JUMPING CUTTER! TIG KELLY JUST HIT THE CUTTER RIGHT ON SCOTT OASIS AS HE FLOATS BACK AND LOCKS HIM IN THE KILL CONFIRMED! THE DRAGON SLEEPER IS APPLIED AS TIG KELLY HAS HIM IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!

Stew-O: THIS COULD BE IT! TIG KELLY COULD HAVE THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP RIGHT HERE! ALL WE NEED TO DO IS SEE SCOTT OASIS PASS OUT OR TAP OUT FROM THIS SUBMISSION HOLD! OASIS IS REACHING AND TRYING TO FIND HIS WAY OUT OF THIS PREDICAMENT, BUT TIG KELLY HAS JUST PICKED THE RIGHT MOMENT TO GET A LOCK ON HIS KILL CONFIRMED SUBMISSION!

Matt Ryder: COME ON, SCOTT OASIS! GET OUT OF THIS! ZACK CRASH WILL KILL YOU IF HE FINDS OUT YOU LOST THE TITLE TO HIM! NO! OASIS SLUMPS OVER! HE COULD BE OUT! TIG KELLY MAY HAVE JUST WON IT! THE REFEREE COMES TO CHECK… OH MY GOD! SCOTT OASIS JUST GOT A SECOND WIND AS HE JUST DEADLIFTS THE ENDER ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!

Stew-O: WHAT POWER! SCOTT OASIS SHOWING EXACTLY WHY HE’S CALLED THE CODE OF STRENGTH AS HE NOW HAS TIG KELLY ON HIS SHOULDERS! Scott Oasis situates Tig Kelly on his shoulders HAVING HIM RIGHT WHERE HE WANTS HIM FOR THE SEEK AND DESTROY! WILL HE HIT IT? PSYCHO DRIVER! HE NAILS THE SEEK AND DESTROY AS TIG IS DRIVEN RIGHT ON HIS HEAD! SCOTT OASIS ROLLS TIG KELLY ON HIS SHOULDERS AS HE GOES RIGHT BY TO HOOKING THE LEG AND STARES RIGHT AT THE REFEREE! IF THIS DOESN’T GO THROUGH, YOU KNOW OASIS WILL EXPLODE AND DESTROY THE REFEREE!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Bad Guy” by Eminem plays in the background as Scott Oasis falls back to the canvas with a smile on his face with the referee helping him to his feet and Brody Sparks entering the ring to hand Scott Oasis his EAW World Heavyweight Championship.)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… AND STTIIILLLLLLLLLL EAWWOORRRLLLLDDDDD HEEAAAVVVVYYYWWEEEEIIIGGGHHHHTTTT CHHAAAMMPPPIIOOONNNNN… SCCOOOTTTTTTTTT OAASSSIIIISSSSS!!!

Matt Ryder: WHAT A WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH! No matter how much Tig Kelly shocked us and fought off both men, Scott Oasis at the end of the day walks out tonight as your champion! He retains his championship and Omerta is still on top of the world!

Stew-O: Yes, but what about the return of Jacob Senn to take Zack Crash out of the equation and make sure that he gave Tig Kelly a fighting chance against Scott Oasis? I mean, I’m still shocked about how brutally he disposed of Zack Crash tonight!

Matt Ryder: I hope Zack Crash is alright! Jacob Senn better hope that Zack Crash doesn’t take him out of commission again because this is simply sickening! I hope that Crash does something about this! However, I’m proud that we still have a champion like Scott Oasis to represent our brand!

Stew-O: Unlike the rest of us, I think we are in for an interesting Dynasty next week! How will Omerta react to the return of Jacob Senn? What will be the next path of Tig Kelly to take after his failure tonight to capture the World Heavyweight Championship? What will Omerta do about this? No one knows, but you can find out on Dynasty, for certain!

(Scott Oasis places the EAW World Heavyweight Championship on his shoulder as he places his boot on the chest of Tig Kelly as Brody Sparks just laughs like a witch and holds the arm of Oasis up for all to see.)

( Camera cuts backstage… Eris LeCava is running through the hallways, passing other people )

Eris LeCava: HBG?? HBG!?

( Eris runs up, and approaches HBG from behind who’s walking by herself, angry and disgusted over what took place earlier )

Eris: HBG I am so fucking sorry —

Heart Break Gal: Eris..

Eris: HBG, listen–

HBG: ERIS. Listen… tonight, I’ll stay the hell out of your way, and you stay the hell out of mine, okay??

Eris: HBG, wait! Please!

( HBG walks into The Mercenaries lockerroom and shuts the door behind her in Eris’ face. Eris stands outside of the lockerroom saddened, and shaking her head. )

( Madison Kaline and other members of The Sanatorium approach the scene while Eris has her head down and is dead silent. )

Madison Kaline: Wow… looks like you’re alone in the end. No Hexa-Gun, no HBG, and after tonight, no Vixens Championship.

( Madison walks away laughing, and Eris remains unresponsive, still mourning over possibly messing up her relationship with HBG. )

( Triple Threat commercial )

Ring Announcer: The contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the Classic Wrestling Federation WOOOOOOOOORLD Heavyweight Championship!

(A quick graphic of the CWF World Heavyweight Championship is shown on screen as “Higher Ground” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers plays, Lioncross getting a huge cheer from the fans as he makes his way to the ring.)

Masters: This man finally gets a chance to exact revenge upon a man who has been nothing more than a lying thorn in his side ever since the two men have crossed paths. For eight years, these two have seldom crossed paths. In about eight weeks, they have developed a personal and bitter war of words and actions. Lioncross has repeatedly said that this match is not about the title. He thinks Carlos has brought the title back to sully the name of CWF and shamelessly make money off of its history. Carlos has attacked his family. Carlos has literally SPAT in the man’s face. Tonight LC gets his chance to inflict all the suffering he wants on Carlos one on one!

Mercer: You keep living in that fantasy world. Carlos Rosso is one of the greatest athletes in this sport today. Lioncross better be ready for the fight of his life!

(Lioncross stands in the ring, leaning against one of the corners as “The Takeover” by Low IQ 01 plays through the arena. Carlos Rosso is shown dressed in special red and gold gear, the CWF World Heavyweight Championship on his waist and Mao Ichimichi at his side as he leaves the locker room and makes his way to the ring.)

Mercer: There he is, as far as I’m concerned, the REAL World’s Champion of Showdown!

Masters: Are you serious?

Mercer: Absolutely!

(Carlos eventually makes his way into the arena, unfazed by the boos of the crowd as he walks towards the ring. When he finally enters it, he takes his belt off and immediately get in Lioncross’s face, wordlessly holding it high in the air as LC shoves him away, the referee stepping in between the two before more happens.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the Challenger, from Omaha, Nebraska, weighing in at 215 pounds…. LIONCROOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

(The crowd roars in cheers as LC tries to get his hands on Carlos, but the referee holds him back again.)

Ring Announcer: His opponent, from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, weighing in at 211 pounds…he is the defending CWF HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD…. CARLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS ROSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

(Carlos hands off the belt to Mao and is immediately met by LC in his corner, battering him with punches and kicks as the referee starts the match.)

(DING DING DING!!)

Masters: Lioncross wasting little time as he gets to work on the CWF Champion, a man that he has called a false champion, someone who was arrogant enough to put the title on himself! Lioncross peppering the midsection of Carlos with merciless blows as Carlos is covering up, trying to protect is head from the punishment! LC lands a big knee to the midsection that stuns Carlos and he tries to get out of the ring! LC grabs him and turns him around grabbing him by the throat and slamming him back into the corner! The referee finally stepping in, trying to pry Lioncross off and he eventually does! CARLOS COMES FLYING OUT OF THE CORNER THOUGH AND NOW THE TWO MEN ARE STANDING IN THE CENTER OF THE RING EXCHANGING PUNCHES AND ELBOW STRIKES! WE HAVE ABSOLUTE BEDLAM EARLY ON! CARLOS TRIES A SPINNING BACKFIST BUT LC DUCKS, LIONCROSS TRIES A QUICK SPINNING BACKFIST OF HIS OWN AND MISSES, BUT LIONCROSS’S LARIAT FINDS THE MARK AND THE CWF CHAMPION SLIDES OUT OF THE RING!

Mercer: That’s right, Carlos. Take a walk! Let him wear himself out! You’re the champion, you don’t have to beat him!

Masters: Lioncross is not letting him rest though, even as the referee tries to keep control of this match! One has to think that neither man is particularly thinking about Grand Rampage at this moment, but both are in it. One has to wonder if anything is going to be left of either of them if this keeps up!? Carlos is having a quick conference with Mao, but LC clubs him in the back from behind! What the hell…is a fan offering Lioncross his belt?! The referee is trying to talk LC out of it, he knows there’s a lot of emotion involved in this match, and he’s letting a lot go from both parties already! LC has the belt!

Mercer: REFEREE! WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU!? STOP HIM!

Masters: LC brings that leather belt down over the back of Carlos Rosso, the “True World’s Champion” yelping in pain as he is being whipped like a rented mule here! Lioncross going wild with the belt, striking the former Interwire Champion over and over again across the back! He’s now wrapping the belt around Carlos’s throat and choking the life out of him! Lioncross is trying to end the very existence of Carlos Rosso! The referee finally gets physically involved and starts pulling Lioncross off, Carlos gasping for air!

Mercer: Referee, what the hell are you doing!? That should be a disqualification! He attacked Carlos Rosso with a foreign object and tried to choke him! That is absolutely no way to treat such a great ambassador of this sport! Ridiculous, man.

Masters: Will you stop, already? Carlos is by no means a saint! He assaulted this man’s family and spits upon the tradition of a federation he helped build! Carlos up to his feet as LC is getting a firm talking to from the official. LC goes in for another move but this time Carlos is ready with a quick shoot kick right to the ribcage. He pulls in Lioncross and hits a quick DDT on the outside, Mao clapping happily at the sight of LC’s head bouncing off the ground like a basketball! Carlos pulls LC up by the ears and slams his face against the ring apron! The physicality from these two gladiators is evident now! Carlos rolls LC into the ring and then slides in quickly himself. He lands a hard leg kick right to the chest as LC tries to get up…and another one that sends him into the corner!

Mercer: There we go. That’s how the champion works! A relentless striking game!

Masters: And now it’s Carlos’s turn to start a deluge of blows in the corner, raining down with a variety of kicks and knees until LC collapses down in the corner. Carlos sprints out of the corner, measuring LC in the corner…he sprints towards the far side of the ring FLYING DROPKICK THAT CONNECTS RIGHT TO THE FACE!

Carlos: You hit me with a belt, you son of a bitch?! YOU HIT ME WITH A BELT!?

Mercer: Carlos pulls LC out of the corner by the ankle…. STF! STF APPLIED! Yes, baby! He’s going to tap out! Carlos Rosso is going to put him away right here!

Crowd: LETS GO (CLAP CLAP) L-C (CLAP CLAP) LETS GO (CLAP CLAP) L-C (CLAP CLAP)

Masters: This massive crowd here in Notre Dame Stadium is trying to rally Lioncross as he is in a bad way, Carlos has that STF locked in at the center of the ring, trying to make his former tag team partner tap out in the center of the ring. LC refusing to quit though, refusing to cave in to Carlos or the pressure of the moment, he’s slowly pulling both men’s bodies towards the ropes, Carlos cinching back as far as he can, trying his best to keep the hold intact but look at the strength of Lioncross…he’s almost there!

Mercer: But Carlos is alert and is gets up to pull him back towards the center of the ring!

Masters: LC is able to counter this time though, pushing Carlos away with his feet as he kips up, Carlos looking for a clothesline but missing…. THE PELE KICK FROM LC FINDS THE MARK THOUGH! PELE KICK STAGGERS CARLOS AND THE CWF CHAMPION FALLS FLAT ON HIS FACE!

Mercer: That move may have done just as much damage to Lioncross too! He landed pretty awkwardly there onto his head and shoulder hitting that Pele kick! Both men are down!

Masters: Both men are down and this rather unconventional referee is not bothering with a 10 count! He wants to see a winner here as much as anyone in the building! Amazingly enough Carlos Rosso is staggering to his feet first, but LC isn’t that far behind! Carlos steps towards Lioncross and is met with a HARD right hand. Carlos responds with a leg kick. BOTH MEN GO FOR OVERHAND RIGHTS…BOTH MEN CONNECT! Carlos looks like he took the worst of it though and LC pulls him in for a BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! IT CONNECTS PERFECTLY!

Mercer: OH NO!

Masters: Lioncross goes for the cover, hooking the leg!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Mercer: NO! CARLOS GETS A SHOULDER UP! What a fighting Champion this man is!

Masters: He is showing some tenacity here I have to say. LC not finished with him yet though! He Irish whips Carlos into the corner…and look at this…LC TAKING A CAGE OUT OF CARLOS’S PLAYBOOK, RUNNING DOUBLE KNEES IN THE CORNER! Carlos is in a bad, bad way here as Lioncross keeps pressing the advantage, Mao trying to rally her charge to a victory! Carlos pulled in by LC…. BACK SUPLEX THIS TIME! LC signaling to the crowd, it could be time for his pile driver, the Spike Piledriver that he promised earlier in the week! LC sets him up between his feet…. SPIKE PILEDRIVER ON THE WAY…NO! CARLOS FLIPS HIM OVER INTO A BACK BODY DROP FOR THE COUNTER!

Mercer: LC writhing on the mat in pain before getting into a sitting position…PENALTY KICK FROM BEHIND FROM CARLOS! RIGHT ACROSS THE BACK.

Masters: Carlos smelling blood in the water here as he pulls LC up to his feet…He’s going for the Southern Lariat, one of his most devastating holds! Wrist clutch from behind, THE TURN, THE LARIAT…LC DODGES IT AND LANDS A NECKBREAKER! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL COUNTER THAT WAS! Both of these men are exhausted here in this physical contest! Both of these men are very slow to get up, LC up to his feet first…A HARD CHOP RIGHT TO THE CHEST. And another one! And another one. LC goes for a spinning backfist and misses yet again Carlos with a knee to the gut.

Mercer: Red Spike time! RED SPIKE TIME!

Masters: Carlos Rosso pulls in Lioncross and setting him up for HIS piledriver, the Red Spike! Mao cheering him on as LC struggles for all he’s worth….LC counters it with a takedown! LC locking in a sharpshooter, and now Carlos will have his mettle tested! Sharpshooter locked in the center of the ring, Lioncross screaming as the fans here in Notre Dame stadium are on their feet! Carlos now trying to crawl towards the ropes to save himself and the CWF Championship that he says that defines his very existence as a wrestler! LC trying to keep it locked in…. Carlos pushes up…and LOOK AT THIS.HE TAKES DOWN LC AND IS UP ON HIS FEET! BEAUTIFUL COUNTER INTO A SHARPSHOOTER OF HIS OWN…BUT LC IS CLOSE TO THE ROPES AND BREAKS THE HOLD RATHER QUICKLY!

Mercer: Carlos leaving the hold locked in until the referee actually does his job for once this match and starts calling for a five count! Oh, LC can whip this man with a leather belt and not get disqualified, but Carlos locks in a sharpshooter too long and he gets a warning!? Gimme a damn break!

Masters: Carlos looking to eliminate Lioncross here, to take him out and prove that he is every bit the athlete he says he is…IRISH WHIP INTO THE CORNER! Carlos goes charging in…. Red Dynamic! NO THE RED DYNAMIC MISSES AND CARLOS LANDS AWKWARDLY ON THE TURNBUCKLE! HIS HEAD HITS THE RING POST! THE CHAMPION IS CUT AND IT’S A BAD CUT! He’s hung up on the top turnbuckle and LC slides underneath him and lifts him up……RUNNING SIT OUT POWERBOMB!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEee
TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
THRRRRR-

Mercer: NO! Carlos gets a shoulder up and LC is in total disbelief! Carlos is bleeding, he’s in serious trouble here at the moment! LC gets up quickly, not losing any focus as he tries to finish off the champion. He’s going for the Lion Claw now, that crossface submission hold but Carlos is fighting it for everything he’s worth, he’s trying to fight out it….LC trying to drag the two of them to the canvas, but Carlos holding himself up, fighting, trying to scramble out of it. Both men are standing up now…CARLOS WITH A DESPERATION SPINNING BACK ELBOW! CAUGHT LIONCROSS FLUSH! YES! YES! THAT ROCKED HIS WORLD!

Masters: Carlos fell down trying to pull his arm away and used the momentum to hit the Rosso Revolver! He caught Lioncross square in the back of the head. Carlos Rosso not wasting any time as he pounces on the incapacitated Lioncross, lifting him up in the Gotch-Style Piledriver position…. RED SPIKE! The champion breathing heavily, exhausted as he drapes an arm over his opponent’s chest!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
TWOOOOOOOOOOO
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(DING DING DING!!)

(“Money Power Respect” by The LOX ft. Lil Kim and DMX plays as a bloodied and battered Carlos Rosso is handed his CWF World Heavyweight Championship Belt by an elated Mao Ichimichi.)

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of this contest and STILL CWF Heavyweight Champion of the World, CARLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS ROSSSSSOOOOOOOO!

Mercer: That was a tough fight, a brawl, absolutely nothing like the CWF of old! But Carlos proves that he is a true champion and overcomes a hostile crowd and a very game opponent to retain his championship! What a man he is!

(Carlos gently shoves Mao away, holding his title belt and looming over the fallen Lioncross. He wordlessly bows respectfully to his opponent before exiting the ring, a medical attendant immediately coming over to take a look at the cut on the right side of his forehead. The referee helps Lioncross to his feet before being shoved away, LC leaving the ring under his own power to a standing ovation from the crowd.)

Masters: Lioncross was a bit unlucky here tonight. He was literally seconds away from beating Carlos several times tonight and I think that show of respect from Carlos lets everybody know HE knows he was almost had. Now the big question for both men here is can the scrape themselves up and recover enough to be a factor in the Grand Rampage later tonight?

( 5 MINUTE INTERMISSION )

(A match graphic is shown for Mr. DEDEDE versus Ares Vendetta for the Answers World Championship as the crowd erupts with cheers in the background)

WWEFan: And now… Personally, the match I’ve been looking forward to the most. We’re about to witness what COULD be the last chapter in this book of revenge and redemption that is the storied history of Mr. DEDEDE and not only Ares Vendetta, but the entire Vendetta Family.

Kawajai: This is gonna be a match that’s not for the faint of heart, Fan, I can just tell… You remember what these two did to each other the last time they stepped into a ring, right?

WWEFan: How could I forget?

Kawajai: No just imagine what they’re willing to do to each other with a World Championship on the line.

WWEFan: I’m afraid to find out, but we’re about to nonetheless.

(The camera transitions to a video package as the faint sound of dripping water can be heard along with a black screen until the scene opens up to the site of Pain For Pride Seven as Mikado Sekaiichi charges at Mr. DEDEDE, leaping over a flaming table to set himself on fire and Spear DEDEDE through a glass table)

WWEFan: DEDEDE JUMPS OUT OF THE WAAAAAY!!!! SEKAIICHI CRASHES THROUGH THE GLASS TABLE, OBLITERATED, WASTED!!!!!

(Mikado Sekaiichi is shown crashing through the glass table on his own in slow-motion before cutting to Mr. DEDEDE leaping off the top rope)

Stew-O: SEKAIICHI’S MOTIONLESS……. DEDEDE LEAPS OFF!!!!!!!! OH MY….!!! CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!!!!!!!!

(Mr. DEDEDE is shown covering Mikado Sekaiichi before transitioning to him celebrating with the World Heavyweight Championship while Mikado Sekaiichi is carried away by the Agents of Extreme)

Stew-O: MR. DEDEDE HAS WON HIS 5TH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE MAIN EVENT OF PAIN FOR PRIDE–

“Undo this storm….”

(The camera cuts to black before slowly transitioning to Territorial Invasion 2014, where Crimson Mask is shown making his entrance into the WarGames Match)

Deadprez: OH BOY!!! HERE COMES TORONTO’S OWN CRIMSON MASK!!!

(The camera transitions to later in the match, as Mr. DEDEDE is betrayed by Crimson Mask and hit with a Brainbuster in the center of the ring amidst the chaos)

Stew-O: BUT DEDEDE GETS SPUN AROUND!!!!!!!! KICK TO THE MID-SECTION!!!!! BRAINBUSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BRAINBUSTER ON MR.DEDEDE!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE HELL!?!?!

(Crimson Mask is shown slowly taking off his mask to reveal Ares Vendetta, as he stands over the body of a downed Mr. DEDEDE)

Deadprez: WHO THE HELL IS THAT GUY!?!?!?! I HAVE NEVER SEEN HIM IN MY LIFE!!!! CRIMSON MASK JUST DID A DOUBLE JOB ON MR.DEDEDE–

“Undo this storm…”

(The camera cuts to black again before transitioning to Mr. DEDEDE and Ares Vendetta staring down in their first match on Dynasty. Ares takes off his vest attire to reveal the names of those that wronged his family tattooed on his body as DEDEDE looks on)

“Undo this storm…and wait.”

(Highlights of the match on Dynasty are shown with both men going back and forth with several devastating maneuvers)

“I can’t control… withering wonders…”

(The Dynasty match is shown coming to an end with Zack Crash intervening and aiding Ares in claiming the victory)

“Flowers that lose… their shape.”

( The camera transitions to a disappointed and infuriated Ares Vendetta ripping off his wrist tape, throwing it down, and destroying everything around him backstage following the bout)

Ares Voice-Over: This isn’t over… Not by a long shot. You’ll pay for what you did to my father. This isn’t over until I say so! On wrongs swift vengeance waits!

“I lie awake and watch it all, it feels like a thousand eyes.”

(A disappointed Mr. DEDEDE is shown going back to his locker room following the Dynasty bout, with the World Heavyweight Championship lazily hanging from his right hand as he slowly closes the door behind him)

DEDEDE Voice-over: I don’t call that a victory. Ares doesn’t call that a victory. I don’t fear him or his pathetic family. He wants me? I’m right here. I’ll do to him what I did to his old man.

“I lie awake and watch it all, it feels like a thousand eyes.”

(The camera cuts to black as the locker room door closes, slowly transitioning to months later at Reasonable Doubt as Methuselah challenges Norman Hellion for the Answers World Championship – the lights in the arena going out and turning back on to reveal Ares Vendetta perched upon the top turnbuckle behind an unsuspecting Methuselah)

Mack: THE BLACK VULTURE STALKING THE MONSTER…..

(Ares Vendetta is shown leaping off the top turnbuckle and crashing down onto Mr. DEDEDE with a Meteora)

Ryder: METEORA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FROM THE TOP ROPE, PLANTING METHUSELAH INTO THE MAT!!!! AND ARES ROLLS THE BEHEMOTH OVER THE BODY OF METHUSELAH!!! ARES VENDETTA HAS COME TO COLLECT!

(Ares Vendetta is shown standing over Methuselah with a grin on his face; crouching down and lifting Methuselah’s head as he speaks to him)

Ryder: THE FLAMES ARE GONE, THE SMOKE IS CLEARED, AND THE ONLY MAN LEFT STANDING IS ARES VENDETTA… WE KNOW DAMN WELL WHY HE’S HERE, THIS ISN’T SOME CURVE BALL RUSE, WE KNOW ARES VENDETTA’S WHOLE PURPOSE OF BEING HERE IN EAW IS TO EXACT VENGEANCE ON THIS MAN–

“I’ll be the calm…”

(The camera cuts to black, transitioning to the next night at Voltage SuperShow: Fighting Spirit, as Ares Vendetta battles Ryan Savage for the Pure Championship; capturing the victory as he comes down upon Savage with the Meteora)

Kawajai: He climbs up and perches himself… METEORA!!!! THE METEORA CONNECTS WITH MALICIOUS INTENT AS ARES NOW COVERS RYAN!!

(The lights in the arena go out before turning back on to reveal Methuselah and Ares Vendetta staring down from opposite sides of the ring as the crowd goes wild)

Kawajai: METHUSELAH IS HERE! HE’S COME HERE TONIGHT AT FIGHTING SPIRIT FOR SOME PAYBACK! ARES HAS A BIG SMILE ACROSS HIS FACE AS HE STARES DOWN WITH A RABID-LOOKING METHUSELAH!

(All of House Vendetta is shown surrounding the ring as neither Ares nor Methuselah budge while they stare down)

Kawajai: Methuselah and Ares look like two sides to the same coin! One just as crazy as the other–

“I’ll be the quiet…”

(The camera cuts to black, transitioning to Methuselah and Ares Vendetta’s match at Reckless Wiring as both men stare down – Methuselah with Mikado Sekaiichi’s World Heavyweight Championship Crown clutched in one hand, and Ares Vendetta holding up the Pure Championship)

“Stripped to the bone… I wait.”

(Highlights of their match at Reckless Wiring is shown, as Methuselah catches Ares’ Coast To Coast with a Spear, Ares leaps over a Spear and comes down with a Meteora into the spine of DEDEDE, and various other spots)

“No, I’ll be a stone… I’ll be the hunter…”

(An unhinged Ares Vendetta is shown finally finishing the match by climbing to the top and hitting a Meteora before climbing back to the top and hitting a Meteora to the skull of Methuselah)

“A tower that casts… a shade.”

(Ares Vendetta is shown celebrating his victory with the rest of House Vendetta; holding up both the Crown and Pure Championship)

Ares Voice-Over: Vengeance isn’t a simple thing, not when done right. It’s a torture. You don’t kill them, you take from them. All I did was take another piece of him.

“I lie awake and watch it all… It feels like a thousand eyes.”

(Methuselah is shown being helped to the back before pushing the Officials helping him away and limping up to the stage on his own power)

DEDEDE Voice-Over: He’s a talented kid, but a kid. If he were smart, he would have finished the job when he had the chance.

“I lie awake and watch it all… It feels like a thousand eyes.”

Ares and DEDEDE Voice-Over: It’s not over. Not yet.

“I lie awake and watch it all… It feels like a thousand eyes.”

(A montage of Ares Vendetta and Mr. DEDEDE’s confrontations and clashes are rapidly shown as both men batter and beat one another repeatedly, cutting to images of Mikado Sekaiichi’s defeat at Pain For Pride, Ares Vendetta swearing vengeance upon DEDEDE for what he did to his father, their battle on Dynasty, their battle at Reckless Wiring, their battles inside and outside the ring, Ares Vendetta injuring those in his way while Mr. DEDEDE defeats those in his way to retain the Answers World Championship all while the instrumental builds to a crescendo before suddenly cutting to black)

“I am the storm….”

(Ares Vendetta is shown defeating Nick Angel in the Finals of the Gold Rush Tournament at Reckless Wiring to challenge the Answers World Champion at the Grand Rampage)

“I am the storm…”

(Mr. DEDEDE is shown successfully retaining the Answers World Championship at Reckless Wiring after a hellacious match)

“So wait.”

(Mr. DEDEDE and Ares Vendetta stare down at the contract signing for their match at the Grand Rampage while DEDEDE confidently holds up the Answers World Championship)

(The camera cuts back to Notre Dame Stadium as the crowd quickly gets to their feet)

Kawajai: Absolutely speechless, Fan, what a history these two men have. I’m usually quick to take a side, but I… I really don’t know who could come out on top here.

WWEFan: No choice but to just wait and see.

(A graphic appears on the titantron, showing all of the past Answers World Champions: Y2Impact, Lethal Consequences, Alexander Da Vinci, Scott Diamond, Prince of Phenomenal, Colin Kaline, Liam Catterson, Drastik, Extreme Enigma, StarrStan, Dark Demon, Hades The Hellraiser, Norman Hellion, and Devan Dubian)

(After several moments, a loud roar echoes all throughout Notre Dame Stadium)

(“Bloodlust” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as a calm, stone-faced Ares Vendetta makes his way out to the stage by himself, dressed in red and black attire as the crowd loudly boos)

WWEFan: I’ll be the first to say that I don’t like how this guy goes about his business whatsoever, Kawa. The first time I met the man underneath the Crimson Mask, he decked me right in the face, and I’m STILL feeling it. However, there’s absolutely no doubting that this mere 23 year old prodigy is one of the greatest talents we’ve ever had in this company.

Kawajai: Without a shadow of a doubt, Fan, I don’t see how these people can honestly boo him by this point!

WWEFan: Well, he has made a reputation of potentially ending the careers of men like Hades, Devan Dubian–

Kawajai: Yeah, yeah, yeah – we get it. Sing a different tune already! This match is about his efforts as a competitor culminating in the biggest match of his career! He’s EARNED this, whether you like it or not.

(Ares crouches in a corner of the ring as the camera transitions to a gospel choir up on the stage, singing religious hymns to the tune of “Saint Pablo” by Kanye West… Upon finishing, the lights in the arena go out for several moments)

…… “And God said, ‘Let there be light.’”

(The entire arena is suddenly illuminated with bright lights, all centered on Mr. DEDEDE – dressed in eccentric white and gold attire, a white trench coat with “Take Flight, That’s God” embroided on it in gold lettering, and the Answers World Championship wrapped around his waist – as “Saint Pablo” by Kanye West plays all throughout the arena while the crowd loudly roars with cheers)

Kawajai: What an entrance! I can barely hear myself speak over this crowd!

(Mr. DEDEDE takes the Answers World Championship off his waist and proudly displays it in the air as he makes his way down the ramp while the lights follow him)

WWEFan: You’d almost think he’s a Godly man, until you realize the only God he praises is himself!

Kawajai: Hey, that’s still being a Godly man, Fan!

WWEFan: Well nonetheless, Mr. DEDEDE, as usual, is oozing with confidence in himself, and it’s only gotten bigger and bigger with every man that’s fallen before him as he’s reigned as the Answers World Champion. Ares Vendetta doesn’t look very impressed with this flashy entrance of his opponent’s, but he SHOULD be impressed with the success his opponent has accumulated since capturing that World Championship at Road To Redemption.

Kawajai: I think he’s WELL aware of that, Fan. Ares hasn’t taken his eyes off of him!

(Mr. DEDEDE taunts on the top turnbuckle before entering the ring and staring down with a still-crouching Ares Vendetta from across the ring as “Saint Pablo” slowly fades out)

WWEFan: We’ve seen this time and time again when these two men step into a ring with each other. Neither one moving. Both with their eyes on the other.

(The Ring Announcer steps into the center of the ring as Ares and DEDEDE stare down)

Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall…. AND IS FOR THE ANSWERS CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WOOOORRRLLLDD… First, to my left… The challenger…. From the Land of the Rising Sun…. He weighed in tonight at 217 Pounds… HE IS THE WINNER OF THE 2016 GOLD RUSH TOURNAMENT…. “THE BLACK VULTURE”, ARES VEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTAAAAAA!!!…..

(The Notre Dame Stadium crowd boos as Ares doesn’t move an inch from where he is in the corner)

Announcer: And to my right…. From Denver, Colorado…. He weighed in tonight at 230 Pounds…. HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION…. HE IS MISTER DE! DE!! DDDDDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!…..

(DEDEDE once again holds up the Answers World Championship as the crowd cheers… After a few moments, DEDEDE reluctantly hands the Championship over to the Referee, who shows it to both men before holding it up for the audience to see. The Referee hands off the Championship to a crew member at ringside and calls for the bell to begin the match)

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: The bell has rung… This match is underway… But neither DEDEDE nor Ares Vendetta have moved a muscle… This Southbend crowd loud and proud in DEDEDE’s corner, on their feet with repeated chants of “That’s God”, and you can tell it’s got DEDEDE lit up and ready to go. The thunderous sound of people stomping their feet in anticipation echoing all throughout Notre Dame Stadium here tonight as Ares stands up in the corner and begins to make his way towards the center of the ring as Mr. DEDEDE follows suit… Neither man looks intimidated by the other whatsoever as they don’t even hesitate to get face to face! The taller Mr. DEDEDE towers over his opponent by just a few inches as they stand, staring eye to eye, exchanging words with one another… And look at this!

Kawajai: … What’s Ares doing? Is he actually,, Extending a hand to DEDEDE?

WWEFan: I think so, Kawa. Ares Vendetta with a shocking showing of respect for his opponent to start off this contest, that even DEDEDE seems taken aback! DEDEDE looks hesitant… But decides to shake Ares’ hand as, if only for a moment, these two unlikely men that hate one another to the very core are actually showing some respect to one another!

Kawajai: Fan, when people talk about the “calm before the storm”, this is what they’re talking about.

WWEFan: And Mr. DEDEDE quickly ends the showing of respect by pulling in Ares for a side headlock! Ares seems to almost anticipate it as he quickly backs DDD into the nearby ropes… Ares with DDD pressed up against the ropes as the Official starts a count.

Referee: One! Two!

Kawajai: Ares has no problem giving a clean break as he holds up both hands… Ares with a taunting pat on the chest to DEDEDE before backing off. DEDEDE quickly comes off the ropes and forward- straight into a side headlock from Ares now! DDD tries to get out of it just as fast, but Ares doesn’t intend to let that come to fruition as he rapidly increases pressure on it in the center of the ring… DDD looking to send Ares off and into the ropes… But Ares hangs on to that side headlock as DDD’s taken down to one knee! DDD bursts back up to his feet and starts lifting Ares off of his out of nowhere! Ares is fighting it! Fighting to stop whatever DDD’s looking for! He manages to bring DDD back down, but DDD almost immediately brings him straight into the ropes! There’s the Referee for the count!

Referee: One! Two! Three!

WWEFan: And DDD with a clean break of his own this time… Putting up both hands just like Ares did–And a LOUD slap across the face of Ares! DDD wants to play some mindgames of his own! Ares explodes off the ropes as DDD backs off! He’s caught with a big hip toss! Ares is quick to get back to his feet as he immediately swings with a big right hand, but nobody’s home! DDD’s got him from behind and lifts him up! Ares escapes whatever DDD’s looking for as he rolls off the shoulder and lands over the ropes and onto the ring apron! He catches DDD with a big forearm off the back of the head! DDD goes stumbling forward, but quickly turns around as Ares leaps to the top rope! LOOKING FOR A SPRINGBOARD METEORA RIGHT OFF THE BAT!! It misses as DDD dodges while Ares catches himself and rolls back to his feet! He turns around as DDD springboards off the middle rope! A big springboard crossbody connects onto Ares Vendetta as he turns around! There’s a cover! But it’s not even a one count before Ares kicks out! Both men scramble back up to their feet! Ares bursts forward! He’s caught by DDD with a side headlock takedown!

Kawajai: I gotta admit, Fan, I didn’t expect DDD to be pulling out a move like that springboard crossbody! Unbelievable to think this guy has been in the game longer than anyone else with how agile he is!

WWEFan: Whatever game plan DDD had going into this match seems to be working for him here as he’s taken control of the match with Ares at his mercy in this grounded side headlock. You can just tell Ares absolutely HATES being made a fool of as he desperately tries to escape this… Ares can’t seem to wrap his legs around the head of DDD for a potential headscissors as it looks like he’s opting to get himself back to his feet to get out of this one… DDD’s doing all he can to keep him down, but Ares refuses to let the Champion overpower him! There’s a big elbow thrown into the gut of DDD as Ares rises back to his feet! Another elbow shot to the mid-section of DDD! Ares is up and smoothly escapes from DDD’s grasp as he’s caught the arm of DDD, weaving under, and wrenching it!

Kawajai: DDD’s got to know that no matter how slick he may think he is, Ares is half his age and twice as fast!

WWEFan: Not so fast! DDD immediately rolls through! Looking to turn it around on Ares! Ares keeps that arm of DDD in his grasp as he drives him down to the canvas, onto his back! DDD with an immediately kip up! Ares sends him back down! DDD with another kip up! He rolls through that arm wrench once more, back to his feet – he breaks from the grip of Ares and NAILS him with a textbook dropkick! DDD with another kip up to his feet while Ares seems to be retreating to the outside! He looks fed up with this! I don’t think he came here tonight expecting DDD to be quite THIS quick! DDD’s wrestling like a man half his age and size! The crowd now antagonizing Ares Vendetta with more chants of “That’s God!” as he kicks the steel steps on the outside! DDD looks as confident as ever as he holds the ropes open for Ares to get back in!

Kawajai: No matter how confident you are in your abilities, Fan, mocking someone like Ares Vendetta is something you don’t want to do. The Referee’s pleading with Ares to get back into the ring before he starts to count him out… Ares now demanding the Referee makes sure DDD stays back as he starts to re-enter the ring… The look of satisfaction on DDD’s face as he happily cooperates and backs away into the adjacent corner while Ares cautiously gets back into the ring! That’s the face of a man who knows he’s in control! He’s in Ares’ head! Both men staring down from opposite sides of the ring once more as DDD’s the first to step out and throw the gauntlet down! Telling Ares to “come on!” as Ares looks to do just that! Exploding out of the corner, Ares comes straight for DDD! DDD looks prepared, but he’s quickly sidestepped by Ares, who suddenly catches him from behind with a waist lock! Looking for a potential German Suplex! DDD blocks it! He throws an elbow back into the side of Ares’ head!

WWEFan: A standing switch by DDD! Ares with a standing switch of his own! DDD QUICKLY TURNS IT INTO A VICTORY ROLL!!

Referee: ONE!!!!

Kawajai: Ares manages to kick out of it quickly as both men rush back to their feet, but DDD’s the quicker of the two as he catches Ares with another waist-lock! Ares is struggling with all he’s got! DDD overpowers the “Black Vulture” and takes him down to the canvas! DDD shifts into a front chancery now! Ares is getting fed up with being manhandled as he struggles to escape while a confident Mr. DEDEDE mocks him with slaps to the back of the head! A furious Ares follows just behind DDD back to a vertical base as he swings! He’s caught with a Japanese armdrag! DDD quick back to his feet as Ares scrambles to get back on his! He rushes in, blind with rage as he’s caught with another armdrag, courtesy of the Champion! Both men back up yet again as DDD grabs the left arm of Ares and wrenches it! Ares trying to escape, but DDD immediately climbs up to the top turnbuckle and tightrope-walks the top rope! He LEAPS off to send Ares Vendetta flying with a beautiful flying armdrag! Ares is sent straight to the outside! Scrambling to get back to his feet and collect himself while DDD’s already back to his feet!

WWEFan: And look at DEDEDE! He’s feeling electric here tonight in Indiana! This crowd is on their feet for him as he sizes Ares up! The challenger has no idea what’s coming as DDD has him in his sights! DDD goes charging with a full head of steam into the ropes! HERE HE COMES! “VINTAGE” DEDEDE WITH A BEAUTIFUL TOPE CON HILO STRAIGHT TO THE OUTSIDE AND CRASHING INTO ARES VENDETTA!!! WHAT A MOVE! AND DEDEDE RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET TO REV UP THIS CROWD! He’s in FULL control of this contest! I’m shocked! Mr. DEDEDE has Ares Vendetta in the palm of his hand in this match! He’s got something else in mind as he quickly makes his way up to the apron and once again locks Ares in his sights! The look on Ares’ face says it all as he clutches the barricade to help him climb back up to a vertical base! I don’t think even HE understands how this all went so wrong for him, but DEDEDE has just been moving unlike I’ve ever seen him in this contest! Ares is back up! He turns around as DDD comes rushing forward! A BIG CANNONBALL SENTON CONNECTS INTO ARES!! DDD IS FIRED UP! THE END COULD BE NIGH FOR THE CHALLENGER! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS!

Kawajai: It’s not over until a three count or a tap out, Fan! I’m not giving up hope just yet! DEDEDE seems to think it’s over as he pulls Ares back up and sends him rolling back into the ring… DDD climbing up to the apron and making the ascent to the nearby top turnbuckle! He’s looking for another high-risk maneuver, and it could be the one he pays for! DEDEDE isn’t some highflyer, but you wouldn’t know it from the way he’s been wrestling this match! He’s taken one too many risks and I think this is the one that turns it all around on him! Ares struggling to get back to his feet as DDD gets perched… HE LEAPS AS ARES IS UP! A BIG 360 DEGREE CROSSBODY CONNECTS RIGHT ONTO ARES VENDETTA!!! YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! Ares Vendetta seems to be at the mercy of his opponent! DDD’s signaling the end as he gets back up to his feet, and these sycophant fans are feeding into it! DDD’s looking to put an end to this as he backs into the nearby corner! We’ve seen this take down too many Legendary names to count, and DDD looks to add another to that list!

WWEFan: Ares is in trouble here, Kawa! He let control slip straight through his fingers and now he’s paying for it as he struggles to get back to a vertical base… DDD’s ready to end this! He’s itching to finish his opponent off as Ares slowly rises up! This crowd is on their feet! HE CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE AS HE COMES CHARGING WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM!! SPEAR!!!!! ARES VENDETTA SWINGS WITH A LOUD, SICKENING KICK TO THE SKULL OF AN INCOMING MR. DEDEDE IN AN ATTEMPT TO STOP THE SPEAR!!! WHAT A KICK! DID YOU HEAR THAT?!

Kawajai: He’s busted open from that!

WWEFan: DEDEDE doesn’t go down from that kick, but he goes to the outside to shake the cobwebs out following that massive kick! Ares Vendetta drops back into the nearby corner to recuperate, but he just saved his hide here with that kick! He just took that momentum train of DDD’s right off the rails with that!

(A slow-motion replay is shown of Ares Vendetta stopping the Spear with a Soccer-like kick to the skull)

Kawajai: Look at that! You can see blood actually go flying off the impact of that kick, Fan! That looks like it legitimately rattled DDD! The Official’s on the outside, trying to check on him as DDD almost looks concerned.. And look at that! A big gash near the temple of Mr. DEDEDE from that kick of Ares! Blood’s starting to run down the face of DDD as he assures the Referee that he’s fine… The Referee gets back into the ring as DDD slides back in, hoping to get back to where he left off as he makes his way towards Ares… He grabs a hold of Ares and pulls him out of the corner to–ARES WITH A CLOSED-FIST SHOT STRAIGHT INTO THAT WOUND OF DEDEDE’S! THE REFEREE WARNS HIM OF THAT AS ARES IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWS UP WITH AN ENZUIGIRI STRAIGHT TO THE SKULL OF DEDEDE NOW! DDD goes backpedaling, struggling to stay on his feet! He ends up in the adjacent corner of the ring, forced to grab the ropes in the corner to keep himself from falling! That kick he took really threw him off his game!

WWEFan: I’m worried it did more than just bust him open – DDD’s still trying to get himself focused, but unfortunately the more time he wastes doing that, the more time Ares Vendetta has to recover and take full control of this contest. DDD seems like he’s back to himself as he targets Ares out of that corner… Ares is back up! HE STARTS CHARGING FOR DDD WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM! DDD’S NOT QUICK ENOUGH TO STOP HIM AS ARES LUNGES FORWARD! He catches DDD with a leaping forearm right into that laceration on his head! DDD wasn’t quick enough to stop it as Ares takes advantage! Ares Vendetta now laying into a nearly defenseless DDD with rapid forearms into the skull! The Referee’s doing all he can to get Ares off! Ares stomping into DDD as the Champion drops down in the corner!

Referee: Come on, Ares! Break it up! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Kawajai: Ares with a clean break just before the five count – sarcastically putting his hands up again! The Official’s trying to talk to the now-bloodied Mr. DEDEDE down in the corner, trying to see if he’s okay to continue… Ares crouches down in that corner, looking DDD in the eyes! Mocking him!

WWEFan: This guy has no shame! No shame at all! AND ARES WITH A LOUD SLAP TO THE FACE OF DEDEDE TO PAY HIM BACK FROM EARLIER! The Referee looks furious as he tells Ares again to back off! A potentially injured DDD pulls himself to the outside, underneath the bottom rope, landing on his feet and realizing how much he’s bleeding! The Referee goes to the outside, trying to check on DDD once more… DDD’s got a glazed over look in his eyes. I’m really not sure how well he is by this point…

(Another replay is shown of Ares Vendetta swinging a kick into the skull of an oncoming Mr. DEDEDE)

Kawajai: And that’s all it takes to make the difference, Fan. Just one kick like that and the tide of this entire bout turns around.

WWEFan: Well, it’s not over just yet. DEDEDE seems to be nodding to the Referee that he’s fine… Hold on… What the Hell is Ares Vendetta doing? He’s gotten himself on the apron! HE COMES RUSHING IN AS DDD PUSHES THE REFEREE OUT OF THE WAY! ARES VENDETTA COMES IN WITH A LOUD PENALTY KICK OFF THE STERNUM OF MR. DEDEDE!! The Referee is LIVID!

Referee: DO THAT AGAIN AND YOU’RE DISQUALIFIED, ARES! GET BACK IN THE RING! GET BACK IN THE RING!

WWEFan: Ares again just holding up his hands with a smug look on his face! Pretending he’s did nothing wrong or didn’t mean to do what he just did! He knows he’s got DEDEDE backed against a wall! As much as I hate to admit it, Ares Vendetta’s a shark right now and he smells blood in the water!

Kawajai: Wrong, Fan! He’s a Vulture!

WWEFan: Whatever he is, it’s not gonna matter if the Champion can’t continue as the Referee tries to check on him again… DDD just keeps nodding that he’s fine, even after taking that penalty kick. DDD pushes the Referee away and rolls himself back into the ring! And Ares Vendetta now! He wastes no time laying into DEDEDE before he can get back to his feet! Ares with clubbing blows to the spine and back of DDD’s head! Throwing repeated knees into the mid-section of his opponent! The Referee looks fearful for the Champion here! Ares has DDD back in the corner of the ring, trapping and just battering him once more! The Referee starts a count again!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Kawajai: Ares once again pushing his luck with the Official as he breaks on four, but he knows so long as he keeps himself from getting disqualified, he’s got this match at his mercy. The look on his face says it all. Things looked bleak for Ares when this all began, but it’s turned around for him considerably here! DDD’s struggling to get back to his feet as the Referee continues to ask him if he’s alright to continue while Ares keeps nipping at his heels, right up on him, waiting to strike again! DDD PUSHES THE REF OUT OF THE WAY AND EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER WITH A THESZ PRESS INTO ARES! DDD’S FIGHTING BACK WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS AS ARES TRIES TO BLOCK! WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?! ARES MANAGES TO OVERPOWER THE CHAMPION, FORCING HIM OFF! DDD doesn’t look done just yet!

WWEFan: The Champion seems to be running on pure adrenaline here as he somehow rushes back up to his feet just as quickly as Ares! BUT HE’S CAUGHT WITH A ROLLING ELBOW FROM ARES! DDD’s thrown through a loop once more as he drops down to one knee! Doing everything in his power to get back up! AND ARES WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE OF DEDEDE TO TAKE HIM DOWN! Ares almost looks sickly satisfied with what he’s reduced the Answers World Champion to! DDD struggles to sit back up, but Ares rushes in with another boot to the face! Ares drops down, placing a knee to the chest of DDD to keep him pinned to the ground, clutches a handful of bloodstained hair, and starts battering him with forearm after forearm after forearm! The Referee looks disgusted by this display from Ares, but there’s nothing he can do about it so long as Ares doesn’t go overboard and so long as Mr. DEDEDE insists he can continue this match! Ares rises back up to his feet with a grin on his face, admiring the work he’s done to his opponent! How many men has he left looking like this so far? How many more does he intend to do this to if he walks out of this with the win? If there’s anything left in DEDEDE, he needs to summon it!

Kawajai: I think that’s just wishful thinking by this point. DEDEDE got caught when he least needed to and he’s paying for it in a big, bad way. Ares grabs a hold of DDD, slowly dragging the Champion back up… HE PULLS HIM UP THE REST OF THE WAY AND SENDS HIM FLYING WITH A BIG BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! He’s not finished yet! He drags DDD right back up! Pulling him in! He navigates him towards the nearby corner! AND A BIG EXPLODER SUPLEX SENDS MR. DEDEDE FLYING INTO THE CORNER!! Ares is just torturing his opponent by this point! DDD looks like he’s about had it! Ares is actually laughing! He’s genuinely laughing! He thinks this is hilarious!

WWEFan: I bet he does… He’s out of his mind, just like his father. The Referee looks like he just wants to go ahead and call this match, but DDD keeps refusing to stop no matter how many times the Official pleads with him. Ares clutches DDD by his hair once more and drags him back up… Ares taunting DDD verbally as he easily pulls him up…

Ares (no mic): Spear.

Kawajai: What’d he say? ARES SENDS MR. DEDEDE SHOULDER-FIRST STRAIGHT INTO THE NEARBY CORNER RINGPOST!! He grabs DEDEDE again, pulling him out of the corner…

Ares (no mic): SPEAR!

WWEFan: AND HE DRIVES DDD RIGHT BACK INTO THAT RINGPOST!! ARES NOW JUST MOCKING MR. DEDEDE! MOCKING THE SPEAR! MAKING A MOCKERY OF THIS MATCH! AND LAUGHING WHILE HE DOES IT! HE GRABS DEDEDE FROM BEHIND WITH A WAIST-LOCK! Taking his time pulling DDD out, into the center of the ring… AND A POWERFUL RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS!! DEDEDE GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET?! WHAT?! MR. DEDEDE ALMOST IMMEDIATELY ROLLS BACK UP TO HIS FEET OFF OF THAT SUPLEX AS HE RUSHES IN AND LOCKS THE WAIST OF ARES VENDETTA!! ARES LOOKS STUNNED AS MR. DEDEDE STARTS DEADLIFTING HIM UP! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! GERMAN SUPLEX!! A MASSIVE GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS ONTO ARES VENDETTA, AND DEDEDE DOESN’T EVEN ATTEMPT A PIN AS HE KEEPS THE WAIST LOCKED AND DRAGS A DAMAGED AND CONFUSED ARES RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET! HOW THE HELL IS DEDEDE DOING THIS?! HE’S GOT ARES BACK UP! ANOTHER BIG GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS! HE’S STILL NOT LOOKING FOR A COVER!

Kawaja: I don’t know what the Hell’s going on! Mr. DEDEDE’s pulled something out of him out of the damn blue! Ares can’t seem to shake him as DDD lifts him up again! AND A THIRD CONSECUTIVE GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS!!! Tha Hat Trick effectively connects as Ares is looking worse for wear! But DDD STILL refuses to stop it! This may be his only opportunity to win this match, and he’s utilizing it to its fullest! To its absolute FULLEST! He drags a dazed and confused, beaten and battered Ares Vendetta back up! A FOURTH GERMAN SUPLEX!! No–Ares is fighting back! He stops the fourth attempt with a loud elbow to the side of DDD’s skull! Another elbow connects! Another! Another! DDD won’t let go! Ares throws the back of his head into the face of DDD! The waist-lock is broken! ARES LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG AS HE IMMEDIATELY RUSHES FORWARD, UP TO THE TOP ROPE! DEDEDE CHARGES UP THERE WITH HIM?! WHAT?! HE LOCKS THE WAIST?! NO–

WWEFan: TOP ROPE GERMAN SUPLEX!!! A POWERFUL TOP ROPE GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS ON ARES VENDETTA!! AND LOOK AT THIS! MR. DEDEDE STILL KEEPS THE WAIST-LOCK IN! HE’S NOT STOPPING THERE! HE’S NOT STOPPING! MR. DEDEDE’S DOING THIS UNTIL ARES VENDETTA IS REDUCED TO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AS HE DRAGS HIM BACK UP! ARES IS STILL STRUGGLING! SOMEHOW STILL STRUGGLING! He’s fighting with everything he’s got to get the Answers World Champion off of him! ARES RUSHES FORWARD WITH DDD STILL ON HIM AS BOTH MEN GO PLUMMETING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE! Unbelievable! DDD STILL not letting go of the waist lock after they land on the apron! Ares can’t believe it! He can’t get DDD off of him, no matter what he does! He’s latched on! DDD’s dragging both men up to their feet here! AND A GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS ONTO THE APRON!! BOTH MEN ROLL OFF – DDD ONTO HIS FEET, STILL WITH A WAIST-LOCK IN ON ARES! ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS STRAIGHT ONTO THE MAT ON THE OUTSIDE!! HE WON’T STOP! HE’S NOT STOPPING!

Referee: ONE!……… TWO!!………… THREE!!………..

Kawajai: Ares is gonna be rendered unconscious if this keeps up! I don’t know how much more he has left in him! DEDEDE has become a monster bent on suplexing him as many times as it takes to finish this match! To render him battered and thoroughly beaten! DDD’s still not letting go of that waist-lock as he once again drags Ares up there on the outside, not even thinking about the Referee counting both of them out! He doesn’t care! DDD seems stuck in his own little World here! Ares is still making an effort to fight out of these endless suplexes as DDD brings him back to his feet! HE RUSHES FORWARD, LOOKING TO GET BACK INTO THE RING FOR REFUGE! He successfully breaks the Official’s count, but quickly pulled right back to the outside by DDD! A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE BARRICADE!!! MR. DEDEDE WITH A SICKENING GERMAN SUPLEX AS THE SKULL OF ARES VENDETTA CRASHES INTO THAT BARRICADE!! ARES IS LEFT IN A GREAT DEAL OF PAIN, FAVORING THE BACK OF HIS NECK, AND DEDEDE COULDN’T GIVE A DAMN! This crowd is on their feet for this man as DEDEDE slowly rises up! Blood coagulating on his face! Shaking the cobwebs out of his head once more as he pushes himself to get back to his feet! He wants to end this!

WWEFan: DDD slowly but surely makes his way back to his feet with a strong look of malicious intent on his face as he eyes his downed opponent!

Referee: THREE!!…………. FOUR!!……

WWEFan: DDD reaches down, grabbing a hold of Ares, and dragging him back up… He needs to get him back in the ring if he wants to–

Kawajai: DDD JUST SENDS ARES STRAIGHT INTO THAT BARRICADE ONCE MORE! HE JUST THREW HIM WITH ALL HIS MIGHT INTO THAT BARRICADE! Come on! He still doesn’t look satisfied! He grabs Ares once again, dragging him up… GAINING MORE MOMENTUM THIS TIME! HE SENDS ARES VENDETTA CRASHING THROUGH THE BARRICADE AND STRAIGHT INTO THE NOW-EMPTY STEEL CHAIRS OF THE FANS IN THE FRONT ROW THAT IMMEDIATELY CLEARED OUT!! DDD ISN’T EVEN THINKING ABOUT FINISHING THIS! ALL HE’S THINKING ABOUT IS PUNISHING ARES! That’s all that’s on his mind!

Referee: EIGHT!!…….

WWEFan: Maybe not entirely all that’s on his mind as he makes the effort to roll back into the ring and right back out to break the count… DDD could actually be looking for the end here as he makes his way towards a damaged Ares Vendetta, surrounded by a mess of folding chairs… DDD looks as merciless as they come as he grabs a hold of Ares and takes him with him! The end is just on the horizon for the Answers World Champion if he can get his opponent back in the ring! Ares is a battered mess! All DDD has to do is capitalize and finish this! He makes it back to the ring as he sends Ares rolling back in! DDD looks to–No! Ares almost immediately rolls to the outside to a different side of the ring! Ares refuses to let this match end! He knows he’s back on the defensive! He knows he could be one move away from losing this! Ares struggles to get back to his feet after all the punishment delivered to him while DDD… DDD seems to be stalking him… What’s he thinking? DDD looks fired up! He WANTS Ares up! This crowd is on their feet! ARES IS UP AS DEDEDE COMES CHARGING!! ARES TURNS AROUND AS DEDEDE LEAPS THROUGH THE TURNBUCKLES AND TO HIS SIDE OF THE RING–SPEAR!!!!!! SPEAR!!! DEDEDE CONNECTS WITH A SPEAR LEAPING THROUGH THE TURNBUCKLES AND INTO AN UNSUSPECTING ARES VENDETTA!! WHAT A MOVE! DDD NEEDS TO COVER HIM! HE NEEDS TO FINISH THIS! DDD’S A BLOODY MESS, BUT HE REFUSES TO STOP! HE DRAGS ARES BACK UP AND SENDS HIM ROLLING BACK INTO THE RING! COVER HIM!! HE SLIDES IN AND HOOKS THE LEG!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!………. TWO!!!!!!!!!!!………….

Kawajai: ARES VENDETTA GETS A SHOULDER UP!! HE GOT A SHOULDER UP! HE’S NOT DONE! NOT YET! I think DDD was really hoping that would be all she wrote! I think he KNOWS he’s going well beyond his limits in this contest! He’s got no choice but to push through the pain! He’s gone through worse than this! He didn’t become a six-time World Champion in this industry by letting his injuries get the better of him! He needs to push through and finish this once and for all, and that looks to be exactly what he’s gonna do! The Referee has no doubt he’s prepared to keep going! He’s ready to put an end to this! To put an end to this story! To all of the pain and agony that these two have put each other through for years now! For all the time he’s spent battling Ares Vendetta and his family! DDD climbs back to his feet and backs into the nearby corner! He’s got Ares locked dead in his sights! The challenger is in a great deal of pain as he struggles to get up! It’s a moment just like this that nearly cost DDD this contest, but it may be what wins it for him just as well if he can connect! This crowd is roaring on their feet in favor of the Champion as he stalks his opponent! ARES IS UP! HE TURNS AROUND AS DDD COMES CHARGING!! SPEAR!!!! ARES LEAPS FOR A METEORA!!!! DDD STOPS HIMSELF DEAD IN HIS TRACKS TO AVOID THE METEORA!! HE IMMEDIATELY CATCHES ARES WITH A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN!

WWEFan: ARES REALIZES WHAT’S COMING!! HE’S FIGHTING WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT! EVERYTHING HE’S GOT LEFT IN HIM! DEDEDE REFUSES TO LET HIM ESCAPE THIS! BOTH MEN JOCKING FOR CONTROL HERE! DEDEDE’S ALMOST GOT IT! ARES’ HOPE IS SLIPPING AWAY! HE’S GOT IT!! METH LOCK!!!! THE METH LOCK IS IN TIGHT ON ARES VENDETTA IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! THAT VERTICAL MUTA LOCK IN TIGHT, SQUEEZING THE LIFE OUT OF ARES WHILE CONTORTING HIS BODY!! ARES HAS NOWHERE TO GO! HE’S GOT NO SAVING GRACE ANYMORE! ARES IS A DESPERATE MAN! HE CAN FEEL HIS OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION SLIPPING AWAY FROM HIM WITH EVERY PASSING SECOND! ARES KNOWS IF HE CAN’T FIND SOME WAY TO GET TO THE ROPES, HE’S FINISHED! HE’S GOT NO CHANCE OF JUST BREAKING OUT OF THIS BY FORCE FROM THAT POSITION! HE’S FADING… NO, ARES ISN’T GIVING UP! HE’S GOT A LOOK OF DETERMINATION ON HIS FACE! HE WANTS TO GET TO THE ROPES! HE WANTS IT MORE THAN ANYTHING! LOOK AT THIS! HE’S SOMEHOW INCHING HIS WAY CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE ROPES, SCOOTING BOTH HIMSELF AND DDD TOWARDS THEM!! HE NEEDS TO HURRY!

Kawajai: THE LONGER HE REMAINS IN THIS HOLD, THE LESS AND LESS OF A CHANCE HE HAS OF WINNING! IF HE PASSES OUT, IT’LL ALL BE OVER! HE’S FORCING DDD AND HIMSELF CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THOSE ROPES WITH EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER! HE ACTUALLY GETTING THERE! HE’S GETTING CLOSE! HE’S NEARLY THERE! DDD BREAKS THE METH LOCK?! HE–HE’S GOT THE RIGHT LEG OF ARES AS HE DRAGS HIM BACK INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING! ARES IS IN PANIC MODE!! STF!!! DEDEDE CHANGES TO AN STF ON ARES!! THAT’S IT! THAT’S GOT TO BE IT! ARES IS JUST OUT OF LUCK! DDD KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS DOING THERE! THAT STF IS LOCKED IN TIGHT AS THE LIFE IS BEING SQUEEZED OUT OF HIM!! DDD LOOKS LIKE HE’D LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO SNAP THIS MAN’S NECK! ARES REFUSES TO DIE HERE! THIS WON’T BE THE HILL HE DIES ON IF HE HAS ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT! HE’S SCRATCHING AND CLAWING HIS WAY TOWARDS THE ROPES IN ALL DESPERATION!! THEY’RE ONLY INCHES FROM HIM, BUT THEY MUST FEEL MILES AWAY! HE’S REACHING OUT! DDD BREAKS THE STF!! CRIPPLER CROSSFACE!!! A CRIPPLER CROSSFACE LOCKED IN TIGHT ON ARES AS HE’S STOPPED DEAD IN HIS TRACKS!!

WWEFan: I CAN’T BELIEVE ARES HAS LASTED THIS LONG! DDD JUST KEEPS CHANGING HOLDS TO BREAK ARES’ MOMENTUM, AND IT SEEMS TO BE DOING THE TRICK!! ARES HAS A HAND UP AS DDD INCREASES THE PRESSURE ON THIS CROSSFACE!! HE’S GONNA TAP!! HE’S GOT NO CHOICE!! NO! HE SLAMS A FIST DOWN INTO THE CANVAS AND KEEPS CRAWLING HIS WAY TO THE ROPES!! HE’S REACHING OUT! DDD GRABS THE FREE ARM OF ARES!! RINGS OF SATURN!!! HE’S GOT THE RINGS OF SATURN SUBMISSION LOCKED IN NOW!! HE REFUSES TO LET HIM GET TO THE ROPES!! HE REFUSES TO LET ARES ESCAPE!! ARES KEEPS PUSHING HIMSELF FORWARD!! HE’S DESPERATE! HE HAS TO GIVE UP!!

Kawajai: ARES GETS CLOSE ENOUGH TO BITE DOWN ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!! HE GOT TO THE BOTTOM ROPE AS HE SINKS HIS TEETH INTO IT!! DDD CAN’T BELIEVE IT!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Kawajai: DDD has no choice but to break the submission! I can’t believe it! I genuinely can’t believe Ares survived that! I’m the biggest believer in this man you’ll see around here, and even I’m stunned he managed to endure that!

WWEFan: Absolutely! Unbelievable resilience from the challenger! That may have been all DDD had left in him!

(Thunder is heard in the distance, as dark clouds begin to gather over the stadium and heavy winds start to pick up)

WWEFan: And it sounds like we’re getting some rainfall, but thankfully it won’t affect this bout as both men are laid out, battered and beaten! Both men exhausted! What a match this has been! Absolutely phenomenal performance from both of these competitors! It looks like DDD’s the only one to show any signs of life here as he starts to rise back to his feet! He grabs a hold of the ropes to aid him as he stalks Ares… DDD looks absolutely infuriated by the resilience of his challenger… DDD verbally attacking Ares as he grabs a hold of him and drags him to the nearby corner! This crowd is on their feet! They know what’s coming! DDD wants to finish this once and for all! Beyond a shadow of a doubt! He wants to make CERTAIN Ares isn’t getting back up! DDD’s looking a bit woozy as he starts to climb up to the top… Hold on! Ares moving now! DDD’s taking too long getting to the top to notice as Ares grabs the ropes, helping himself up… DDD’s made it to the top! Ares rushes back up to his feet and shakes the top rope to take DDD’s balance from him and drop him groin-first on the top! Ares may have just found a golden opportunity, if he can take advantage! DDD’s already trying to get back up on the top! ARES BURSTS FORWARD! HE RUNS UP THE ROPES AND NAILS DEDEDE WITH A BIG TOP ROPE FLASH KICK AS DDD IS SENT PLUMMETING TO THE OUTSIDE!!

Kawajai: Ares is running on fumes here, but he needs to keep the momentum going! That’s the only way he’s gonna win this! DDD’s got that glazed over look in his eyes once more as he struggles to get up after taking that drop to the outside… Ares has him in his sights as he gets back to his feet! DDD’s up! ARES VENDETTA COMES BARRELING FORWARD WITH MOMENTUM AT HIS BACK!! SUICIDE DIVE!! IT’S STOPPED WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE SKULL FROM DEDEDE!! HE REFUSES TO LET ARES TAKE BACK THIS MATCH! NOT AFTER ALL HE DID TO ATTEMPT TO END IT! IF HE LOSES CONTROL HERE, THAT COULD BE IT FOR HIM! HE KNOWS IT! DDD LAYS INTO ARES WITH RAPID FOREARMS NOW! He quickly climbs up to the apron, potentially looking for something big! Ares fires back with a shot to the gut through the ropes! Ares now with a shoulder thrust into the gut of DDD! Ares pulls himself back to his feet with the top rope and nails DDD in the face with a blunt forearm! He swings again, but nobody’s home as DDD goes for a shoulder thrust of his own through the ropes! ARES IMMEDIATELY CATCHES HIM WITH A KNEE TO THE MOUTH! ARES SEIZES THE OPPORTUNITY AND LEAPS OVER THE TOP ROPE FOR A SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB ON THE OUTSIDE!!

WWEFan: No–DDD’s clutching the ropes with all he’s got! He’s not letting it connect! Ares is fighting to connect with it! DDD swings down into the skull of Ares! ARES PULLS DDD AWAY FROM THE ROPES!! HE’S GOT HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS AS HE CHARGES FORWARD!! HE THROWS MR. DEDEDE OVER THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE AND RIGHT INTO THE COMMENTATORS WITH A BIG POWERBOMB!!! WE NEED SOMEONE OUT HERE TO CHECK ON OUR SPANISH COMMENTATORS!! ARES VENDETTA DOESN’T LOOK FINISHED YET! He rolls back into the ring with bad intentions in mind! He slowly makes his way back to his feet and tightly clutches the top rope as he eyes DDD on the outside!

Kawajai: DDD’s making his way back to his feet, pushing the commentators out of his way, not realizing he’s being stalked! ARES LEAPS TO THE TOP ROPE!! LOOK OUT!!

WWEFan: COAST TO COAST!!! A MASSIVE COAST TO COAST OVER THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE AND INTO DEDEDE AS BOTH MEN GO CRASHING THROUGH THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE FRONT ROW!!! THESE TWO MEN ARE DESTROYING ONE ANOTHER!! DESTROYING EVERYTHING AROUND THEM! THE SPANISH COMMENTATORS ARE DOWN AND OUT, ANOTHER PART OF THE BARRICADE HAS BEEN BROKEN, AND BOTH MEN ARE DOWN, SURROUNDED BY THESE LOUD SOUTH BEND, INDIANA FANS HERE IN ATTENDANCE!! THE REFEREE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO START A COUNT!

Referee: ONE!!……… TWO!!………….. THREE!!………….. FOUR!!………

Kawajai: Ares Vendetta now slowly but surely making it back to his feet… He reaches down, grabbing a hold of DDD, pulling him along…

Referee: SIX!!……… SEVEN!!……..

Kawajai: Ares navigates DDD back to the ring and sends him rolling in to break the Ref’s count! Can we get another replay if that Coast To Coast?

(A slow-motion replay is shown of Ares Vendetta flying from the top rope, over the Spanish announce table, and into Mr. DEDEDE for a Coast To Coast through the barricade)

WWEFan: I’ve got a feeling that’s a sign of the end for DEDEDE. I think he’s long-since exhausted whatever he had left in the tank as Ares looks to finish this off! He starts making his way up to the top as DDD’s been rendered down and out in the ring! Ares is up! He’s perched! METEORA!!!! AND NOBODY’S HOME AS DDD MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY!!

He’s got a chance to finish this! This crowd is on their feet once more! DDD starts to climb up there! He’s up! He’s battered, beaten, and bloodstained, but he’s got a chance to finish this! He… What’s he doing?

(DEDEDE slowly points at himself with both thumbs)

WWEFan: Is he… Is he mocking Robbie V? DEDEDE LEAPS!! FIVE-STAR FROG SPLASH!!!! A MASSIVE FIVE-STAR FROG SPLASH ONTO ARES VENDETTA!! MR. DEDEDE GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO NAIL ARES WITH HIS FATHER’S OWN FINISHING MANEUVER!! HE NEEDS TO COVER HIM!! I CAN’T THINK OF A MORE HUMILIATING DEFEAT FOR ARES THAN THIS!! DDD CRAWLS OVER AND HOOKS THE LEG!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!…….. TWO!!!!!!!!!!!………. THREE!

Kawajai: AND IT’S NO GOOD AS ARES KICKS OUT OF IT! IT’S JUST NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP THE CHALLENGER DOWN! IT’S NOT ENOUGH! DEDEDE THOUGHT HE HAD IT THERE, AND I HONESTLY DID TOO, BUT THIS MAN ARES VENDETTA JUST WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING!

WWEFan: In fact, I think Ares is looking more to try to retreat here as he crawls to the apron, still in pain, still favoring his mid-section after that Frogsplash! DDD slowly rises back to his feet, stalking Ares, who tries to pull himself up on the apron… Both men up! DDD RUSHES IN AND NAILS ARES WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE SKULL! Ares clings to the top rope for dear life, refusing to let go! DDD nails him with a forearm shot to the face! Another! Ares refuses to fall! DDD GRABS ARES AND FLIPS HIM OVER, INTO THE RING AS ARES’ ARMS HAVE BEEN CAUGHT UP IN THE ROPES! HE’S TRAPPED! DDD IMMEDIATELY LAYS INTO THE DEFENSELESS ARES VENDETTA!! RAPID-FIRE FOREARM SHOTS TO THE SKULL AS THE REFEREE TRIES TO GET HIM OFF OF ARES!!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE with a clean break to once again mock Ares… AND AN EVEN BIGGER SLAP ACROSS THE FACE THAN BEFORE TO ARES!!

DEDEDE (no mic): YOU CAN’T BEAT GOD, ARES!

WWEFan: DDD as full of himself as ever, but he may be right that Ares can’t seem to capture the victory here as the Referee desperately tries to get Ares out from those ropes… HOLD ON!! SPEAR!!!! MR. DEDEDE OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A SPEAR STRAIGHT INTO THE MID-SECTION OF A TRAPPED ARES VENDETTA!! THE REFEREE LOOKS FURIOUS!! DEDEDE’S LAUGHING! HE LOVES THIS! He’s back to his feet, backing off… AND HE CHARGES AGAIN WITH EVEN MORE MOMENTUM AS THE REFEREE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!! SPEAR!!!!!! THE MIDDLE ROPE SNAPS!! BOTH MEN GO PLUMMETING TO THE OUTSIDE AS THE MIDDLE ROPE SNAPS FROM THE IMPACT OF THAT SPEAR!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE!! UNBELIEVABLE! DDD’s the only one of the two still going as he… He’s ripping at the mats! He’s literally pulling at the mats on the outside to expose the cement underneath! What the Hell does he plan to do with that?! DDD’s got a sadistic look on his face! Come on, DDD! He grabs a hold of Ares, dragging him up as the Referee scolds him! He pulls Ares in! DEDEDE DDT!!! THAT IMPALER DDT CONNECTS RIGHT INTO THAT EXPOSED CEMENT!! THAT’S GOT TO BE IT! ARES HAS TO BE OUT! DDD SITS UP, BLOODSTAINED AND SMILING!

Kawajai: DDD grabs a hold of Ares once more, dragging him up… And blood now running down the forehead of Ares! That DDT busted him open! DDD looking to finish this off for good as he sends Ares rolling back into the ring before sliding in himself… He… He’s not going for a cover? What’s he thinking?

Referee: ONE!!……….. TWO!!………… THREE!!!………….. FOUR!!…………..

WWEFan: I can’t believe these two… I really can’t…. And they’re actually MOVING!

Referee: FIVE!!………… SIX!!……………. SEVEN!………..

(Lightning cracks within the mile radius of the arena, and the rain begins to pour down even heavier)

WWEFan: Both Ares and DDD slowly but surely rising back to their feet as the Referee stops the count! Ares grabs DDD and pushes him down to his knees to help himself to his feet! AN IMMEDIATE SHOOT KICK TO THE STERNUM OF DDD! ANOTHER SHOOT KICK TO THE RIBS OF DDD FROM ARES! ARES VENDETTA UNLOADING WITH SHOOT KICK AFTER SHOOT KICK! EACH ONE SOUNDING LIKE A DAMN GUNSHOT! BLOOD’S POURING DOWN THE FACE OF DEDEDE! ARES LOOKS TO TOP IT OFF AS HE CHARGES BACK INTO THE ROPES!! PENALTY KICK TO THE CHEST OF DEDEDE!!! DEDEDE IMMEDIATELY RISES BACK UP!!

ARES… SLOWLY WIPING THE BLOOD OFF OF HIM… HE CRASHES INTO MR. DEDEDE WITH A FURIOUS LARIAT TO THE FACE!! DDD RISES BACK UP AS ARES NAILS HIM WITH ANOTHER MASSIVE LARIAT TO THE FACE! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! DDD IS DOWN, BUT ARES JUST PULLS HIM BACK UP TO NAIL HIM WITH ANOTHER LARIAT! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! AND ONE MORE LARIAT AND ARES VENDETTA FINALLY PUTS A STOP TO IT AS HE DRAPES AN ARM ACROSS THE CHEST OF DEDEDE FOR THE COVER!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!…….. TWO!!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!

Kawajai: AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, HE KICKS OUT! MR. DEDEDE SOMEHOW KICKS OUT! Ares looks up at the Referee and can’t believe what he’s seeing as the Official shows him it’s only a count of two! Ares can’t believe it! For as resilient as he may be, DEDEDE may be just as much, if not MORE! Ares looks like he’s about had it as he pulls himself up to his knees… He looks at DEDEDE more disdain than I’ve ever seen… Ares slowly struggles to get back up to a vertical base… And a stomp to the face of DDD! Another stomp! DDD refuses to die… Still moving as he desperately tries to pull himself back up… Ares looks absolutely disgusted by him… Absolutely disgusted by the effort he’s had to take to keep this man down… Ares just grabs the blood-covered face of DDD and pushes him back down! DDD just won’t stay down! He clutches the attire of Ares, trying to pull himself back up! Ares shakes his head… Ares looks like he’s gonna kill this man! He grabs the head of DDD and starts dragging him up! DDD SPRINGS UP?! NO–

WWEFan: GRAND SLAM!!!! MR. DEDEDE WITH THE GRAND SLAM ON ARES VENDETTA OUT OF NOWHERE!! HE’S LAID OUT! NEITHER MAN IS MOVING!! COVER HIM, DEDEDE! IF YOU’VE GOT ANYTHING LEFT IN YOU WHATSOEVER, YOU’LL COVER HIM! DDD STARTS SHOWING SIGNS OF LIFE! HE’S DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET THE PIN! AND…. DDD ROLLS OVER TO DRAPE AN ARM ACROSS THE CHEST OF ARES!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!………. TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!……….. THREE!!!

Kawajai: YES–ARES WITH A SHOULDER UP!! MY GOD, HE’S STILL IN THIS! HE’S STILL ALIVE! DDD SITS STRAIGHT UP! I don’t think he can believe this himself! His face is literally covered in blood! He… He starts pulling at his hair…. DDD’s got a look in his eyes that I haven’t seen in a while, Fan… He… DDD starts to roll to the outside…. And makes his way over to the timekeeper! He pushes him out of his way! What the Hell is he doing?! He grabs that steel chair! Come on, DDD!

WWEFan: I don’t think that’s DDD anymore, Kawa! The look in his eyes says “Methuselah”! DDD starts beating that chair on everything nearby! This guy’s lost it! He starts to climb up to the apron! Come on! Get it together, DDD! Don’t let it end like this! Get a hold of yourself, damn it! DDD ascends up to the top rope with that chair in hand! The Referee’s pleading with him to stop whatever the Hell he’s thinking of doing! He’s gonna get himself disqualified, but I don’t think he even realizes it! He’s lost! This guy has lost whatever ounce of sanity he had left! DDD’s up there with the chair in hand! DON’T! HE’S LOOKING FOR WINGS OF HELL!!!

Kawajai: Hold on… DDD now…. I think he’s thinking against it! He’s shaking the cobwebs out! He’s struggling to keep it together! DDD… He throws the chair to the outside! Thank God! He’s not letting it end that way! DDD gets himself perched at the top! HE’S GOT ARES DOWN AND OUT! NORTH STAR!!!!!!

WWEFan: HE’S CAUGHT!! HE’S CAUGHT!!! ARES VENDETTA CATCHES HIM IN A TRIANGLE CHOKE!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! DDD’S DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET TO THE ROPES HERE!! ARES SHIFTS IT INTO A GOGOPLATA!!! ARES DRAINING THE LIFE FROM DEDEDE HERE WITH THAT GOGOPLATA!! DDD IS FRANTICALLY LOOKING FOR THE ROPES TO GET HIM OUT OF THIS!! HE’S NEAR THEM!! ARES BREAKS THE GOGOPLATA, LOOKING TO LOCK IN THE VULGAR DISPLAY OF POWER INSTEAD!! HE’S ALMOST GOT IT!!! DDD REACHES THE ROPES!! HE GOT EM!!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Kawajai: And Ares has no choice but to break the hold! Ares looks like he just has absolutely no idea what to do to keep this guy down! I’m sure DDD’s thinking the same thing! Neither man can afford to lose this! Both Ares crawls to the nearby corner and starts dragging himself up! He’s determined to end this! He’s not stopping until DDD does! Ares climbs up to the top as this crowd looks on! Ares makes it up! DDD starts to show signs of life! He needs to think of something! ARES LEAPS!! METEORA!!!!! THE METEORA CONNECTS ONTO DEDEDE!!!! HE GOT IT! ARES GOES FOR THE IMMEDIATE COVER!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!!

(The entire crowd erupts with a thunderous roar as Mr. DEDEDE gets a shoulder up at one as the commentators say nothing for several seconds while a baffled Ares Vendetta tries figure out what happened)

WWEFan: ….. I can’t believe what I’m seeing, Kawa. I swear to God, I can’t believe either of these men. Ares is as baffled as we all are! Ares seems to think the Referee did something wrong, but no! As God as my witness, Mr. DEDEDE just kicked out at one after a Meteora! DDD isn’t just alive, he’s MOCKING Ares Vendetta! He’s telling him “You can’t beat me”, plain and simple! Unbelievable! Ares crawls into the corner, not even sure what to do! Hold on… Ares… What the Hell is he…. Ares crawls over to that torn canvas…. He… He’s ripping at it! He’s ripping the canvas off to reveal that wooden surface underneath! HE’S REMOVING THE WOOD! ARES VENDETTA JUST MADE A PIT IN THE RING! WHAT THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE’S DOING?!

Kawajai: He’s lost it! He’s lost his damn mind, Fan, and I don’t blame him! He wants to win this more than anything! He’s gonna have to kill this man just to keep him down!

WWEFan: The Referee’s threatening to call this match right now! I don’t think Ares even remembers the Referee is here! He’s as blind as DEDEDE is in this! They’ve both left reality! Ares grabs a hold of DDD, pulling him up… Don’t do this, Ares… Don’t… DON’T! ARES PICKS HIM UP!! POWERBOMB!!!! A SHEER DROP POWERBOMB THROUGH THAT HOLE IN THE RING BY ARES VENDETTA!!!! DEDEDE HAS JUST BEEN SWALLOWED WHOLE BY THE RING!!! JUST PIN HIM! THAT’S GOTTA BE IT! JUST COVER HIM, ARES!!

Kawajai: HE’S NOT GOING FOR A COVER, FAN! HE’S GOING TO THE TOP! HE’S LOOKING FOR ONE MORE METEORA!! AND LOOK AT HIM! HE’S LAUGHING! ARES VENDETTA’S LAUGHING LIKE HE JUST HEARD THE FUNNIEST JOKE IN HIS LIFE! ARES ASCENDS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS THE REFEREE BEGS HIM NOT TO DO THIS! ARES JUST KEEPS LAUGHING! HE… HE…. Ares…. Ares is looking a bit confused….

Ares (no mic): ….. WHERE IS HE?!

WWEFan: WHAT?!

Kawajai: The Referee looks down into that hole! He’s not there! DDD’s gone! How?! Ares has lost it! He drops down from the top and rolls to the outside! Ares is destroying everything in his way, looking under every side of the ring!

Ares (no mic): WHERE IS HE?!!

WWEFan: LOOK!! DEDEDE! DEDEDE CRAWLS OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING!! HE’S STILL ALIVE! HE’S STILL IN THIS!! HE PULLS HIMSELF UP ON THE OUTSIDE AND ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING AS A STUNNED ARES VENDETTA WATCHES! DEDEDE LIFTS HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET, LOOKING ARES DEAD IN THE EYES! AND HE GESTURES FOR HIM TO BRING IT! UNBELIEVABLE! ARES IS LIVID!! ARES CHARGES INTO THE RING! DEDEDE AWAITS HIM! AND THEY CHARGE INTO ONE ANOTHER WITH FISTS FLYING ALL OVER THE DAMN PLACE!! BOTH MEN THROWING LEFTS AND RIGHTS INTO ONE ANOTHER AS THIS CROWD HAS BECOME UNGLUED!! THEY’RE BEATING THE HOLY HIGH HELL OUT OF ONE ANOTHER!! BOTH MEN GOING BACK AND FORTH HERE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! ARES QUICKLY TAKES CONTROL AS HE FORCES DEDEDE INTO THE NEARBY CORNER!! HE STARTS CHOKING HIM! HE’S LITERALLY STRANGLING HIM!!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Kawajai: ARES BREAKS THE HOLD, GETTING IN DEDEDE’S FACE!

Ares (no mic): I’M GONNA KILL YOU! I’M GONNA KILL YOU!

Kawajai: I THINK NOW MIGHT BE THE TIME TO STOP THIS MATCH!! ARES LIFTS DDD UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, NAILING HIM WITH MORE FOREARMS!! HE STARTS CLIMBING UP THERE HIMSELF!! HE SETS HIM UP!! NO! NO WAY!! DON’T DO IT! PEDIGREE DRIVER FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!!!

WWEFan: BACK BODY DROP!!!! DEDEDE MIRACULOUSLY BACK BODY DROPS OUT OF IT AS ARES VENDETTA IS SENT FLYING OFF THE TOP ROPE AND CRASHING TO THE STEEL STEPS BELOW!! JESUS CHRIST!! WE NEED SOME HELP! WE NEED SOMEBODY TO HELP THESE PEOPLE RIGHT NOW! THE REFEREE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO COUNT!

Referee: ONE!!……………. TWO!!……………….. THREE!!………………..

Kawajai: Ares – I don’t know how – still alive on the outside… But I don’t think he’s gonna make this… But he NEEDS to make it!

Referee: FIVE!!……………… SIX!!…………………. SEVEN!!………………

Kawajai: Come on, Ares!

Referee: EIGHT!!………….. NINE!!……………… T–

WWEFan: AND ARES VENDETTA ROLLS INTO THE RING AT THE LAST POSSIBLE FRACTION OF A SECOND!! HE BEATS THE COUNT!! THIS MATCH WILL GO ON!! HE MANAGED TO–

Kawajai: CORKSCREW NORTH STAR?!!!!!!!! WHAT?!!! WHERE DID THAT JUST COME FROM?! MR. DEDEDE JUST CAME FLYING OFF THE TOP WITH A CORKSCREW NORTH STAR OUT OF THE DAMN BLUE ONTO ARES VENDETTA!! THAT’S IT! COVER HIM!! COVER HIM, DEDEDE! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, COVER HIM!!

WWEFan: I THINK DEDEDE MAY HAVE JUST EXHAUSTED LITERALLY EVERYTHING HE HAD LEFT WITH THAT! HE CAN BARELY MOVE! HE’S A BLOODY MESS! HE’S GOT TO HAVE A SEVERE CONCUSSION! HIS BODY IS BEATEN AND EXHAUSTED! HE MAY NOT MAKE IT! THE REF’S GONNA START A COUNT WITH NOBODY MOVING!

Referee: ONE!!………… TWO!!……………. THREE!!……………

Kawajai: COME ON, DEDEDE! YOU’RE SO CLOSE!

Referee: FOUR!!…………….. FIVE!!…………….. SIX!!…………..

WWEFan: HE’S STARTING TO MOVE!

Referee: SEVEN!!……………

Kawajai: DEDEDE ROLLS OVER TO DRAPE AN ARM ACROSS THE CHEST OF ARES!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!!!…………… TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…………….. THREE!!!!

WWEFan: HE KICKED OUT–JESUS CHRIST!! ARES VENDETTA JUST KICKED OUT OF IT!! HE GETS THE SHOULDER UP SOME WAY, SOME HOW! ARES VENDETTA WILL NOT DIE! NOBODY HAS BEEN ABLE TO KICK OUT OF THAT CORKSCREW NORTH STAR! NOBODY!

Kawajai: IF DEDEDE HAD JUST BEEN ABLE TO GO FOR A QUICKER COVER, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN IT! I GUARANTEE IT! THIS IS INCREDIBLE! DEDEDE LOOKS LOST! HE LOOKS LIKE HE JUST DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! HE’S BARELY HERE WITH US AT ALL AFTER THE DAMAGE HE’S TAKEN IN THIS MATCH! HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO BUT TO CONTINUE ON AND TRY TO END THIS CONTEST… HE CRAWLS HIS WAY OVER TO A NEARBY CORNER AND STARTS TO PULL HIMSELF UP…. HE’S GOT TO END THIS… HE’S GOT TO! DEDEDE IS AS DESPERATE AS THEY COME! I’VE NEVER SEEN TWO PERFORMERS TAKE IT TO ONE ANOTHER LIKE THESE TWO MEN HAVE TONIGHT! THIS IS BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES OF WHAT I COULD HAVE EXPECTED, BUT DEDEDE HOPES TO FINISH IT HERE AS HE SETS UP FOR ONE MORE SPEAR!! HE’S GOT ARES IN HIS LINE OF FIRE! ALL HE HAS TO DO IS CONNECT! ONE MORE AND IT’S OVER! HE–

(Mr. DEDEDE collapses in the corner as the Referee immediately checks on him)

WWEFan: DEDEDE… He’s looking rough… He…. He’s out of it…. I can’t imagine how much blood he’s lost in this contest, I really can’t begin to imagine….

Kawajai: DEDEDE seemed to have fallen unconscious there for a moment, but his eyes are back open… I don’t think he can even hear a word the Official’s saying, he just keeps nodding his head…

(A concerned HRDO makes his way down the ramp, calling for the Referee)

WWEFan: It seems like this match might be at its end.. DEDEDE just – he can’t keep going. Who knows how far beyond his limits he’s pushed himself tonight. The Referee nods to HRDO and goes to check on DEDEDE once more… He’s telling him he’s gonna have to call the match.

Kawajai: DEDEDE CLUTCHES THE UNIFORM OF THE REF, SHAKING HIS HEAD! He doesn’t want it to end! He refuses to let it end! The Referee’s trying to tell him he HAS to! His wellbeing is at stake here! The Ref’s shirt is covered in blood from DDD clutching at it, pulling himself up! Telling the Referee “No”! He’s begging him to not stop this! DDD looks over to HRDO, telling him to not stop this! He–ARES!! ARES FROM BEHIND!! ARES COMES IN OUT OF NOWHERE AS HE GRABS THE WRIST OF DEDEDE!! DEDEDE’S CLUTCHING TIGHTLY ONTO THE SHIRT OF THE OFFICIAL TO KEEP HIMSELF FROM FALLING!! IF HE LETS GO, THAT COULD BE IT! HE THROWS HIS HEAD BACK, INTO THE FACE OF ARES!! DEDEDE TURNS AROUND!! KING’S LANDING!!!!! ARES KEPT THE WRIST OF DEDEDE CLUTCHED AS HE CONNECTS WITH AN EMPHATIC KING’S LANDING!! HE KEEPS THE WRIST OF DEDEDE IN HIS GRASP AS HE STOMPS AWAY AT HIM!! HE KEEPS STOMPING AWAY AT HIM!! STOP HIM, REF!! HE–ARES COLLAPSES DOWN, ONTO DEDEDE FOR A COVER!! THE REFEREE LOOKS RELUCTANT!! HE’S GONNA COUNT IT!

WWEFan: I THINK HE’S TERRIFIED DDD’S GONNA KICK OUT!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!………… TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!…………. THREE!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(HRDO orders medical technicians out to the ring as Ares Vendetta and Mr. DEDEDE are left lying motionless in the ring)

Kawajai: What a….. What a match. That’s all I can say. That was, without a doubt, one of the most brutal, exhausting, back and forth contests I’ve ever witnessed. We throw around the line “These two men just laid it all on the line” a lot, but I say with all conviction… These two men just laid it all on the line.

(A concerned Tarah Nova joins HRDO and the medical technicians at ringside as they check on DEDEDE while others check on Ares Vendetta)

WWEFan: I don’t even know what to say. There’s nothing I could possibly say to adequately described the performance these two men just gave.

(The crowd loudly cheers on both men as Mr. DEDEDE is helped onto a stretcher while HRDO and Tarah Nova look on)

Kawajai: I don’t think there’s anything left to be said. These two men pretty much just said it all. If you doubted either of these two men before tonight, you don’t anymore.

(The Referee hands a bloodied, exhausted Ares Vendetta the Answers World Championship as Mr. DEDEDE is stretchered out)

Announcer: The Winner of this contest by pinfall…… AND NNNNNEEEEEEEEEWWWWWW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION….. ARES VEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTAAAAAAAA!!!!

(“Bloodlust” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as Ares clutches the Answers World Championship and watches Mr. DEDEDE get stretchered off)

Kawajai: Beyond a shadow of a doubt, that man proved tonight that he belongs here. That man just beat a Legend. He just beat a God. If this is truly the final chapter in this saga for the Vendettas and Mr. DEDEDE, I don’t think anyone’s complaining. Congratulations to the new Answers World Champion, Ares Vendetta.

(Medicial technicians continue to try to ask Ares Vendetta questions while he clutches the Answers World Championship, surrounded by a ring with a torn canvas and a hole in it, a broken middle rope, broken barricades, and torn mats)

WWEFan: I’ve just been told that we’ll be taking an intermission to repair the ring and the barricades. We’ll be back with the 2016 Grand Rampage soon.

( 15 MINUTE INTERMISSION )

( The intermission is finished, and the stormy weather has subsided as the setting sun can be seen in the partially cloudy, late afternoon )

Masters: We are back with the 9th annual EAW Grand Rampage, and our workers have just finished repairing ringside and cleaning up the stage and ramp following the inclement weather — not to mention that HELLACIOUS storm we just witnessed in that Answers World Championship match.

Mercer: Words can’t even describe how epic that was. DEDEDE and Ares destroyed everything that surrounded them! That was one of the most brutal matches I’ve ever seen in my life, and there wasn’t even a single weapon involved! But Ares Vendetta was the one who came away, and honestly, it took every last ounce, every drop of blood, every bead of sweat and every bone in his body that he had to destroy “God”. But he did it.

Masters: Mr. DEDEDE is being rushed to a medical facility as we speak… and if you think that match was dramatic? Just wait, because the drama only continues.

(The camera fades to black as a “Hurt’s Like Hell” – Fleurie begins to play; shots of both Xavier Williams and Tarah Nova begin to flash of their time in Frontline Wrestling Evolution, throughout their time in Demon’s Council and Xavier’s war with Dark Demon and Tarah’s against Cameron Ella Ava.)

“How can I say this without breaking?”

(The camera flashes to a shot with Xavier Williams and Tarah Nova backstage at Pain for Pride Seven, after Xavier had just won the Cash in the Vault briefcase.)

“How can I say this without taking over?”

(The camera cuts to a shot of Tarah Nova turning on Dark Demon to side with Xavier.)

“How can I put it down into words when it’s too much for my soul alone?”

(The camera cuts to a shot of Lucian Black threatening to throw Tarah Nova off the stage and Xavier running to the rescue.)

“I loved, and I loved, and I lost you…”

(The camera cuts to a shot of Tarah Nova hitting Xavier in the head with a steel chair.)

“I loved, and I loved, and I lost you…”

(The camera cuts to a shot of Xavier Williams lying on the exposed concrete outside the ring, unconscious, as Tarah Nova watches from the ring, seemingly torn.)

“I loved, and I loved, and I lost you…”

(The camera slowly fades to black.)

“And it hurts like hell…”

(“Hurts Like Hell” continues to play as the camera cuts to Reckless Wiring a year ago as Tarah Nova beats Lethal to win the Vixen’s Championship; the camera then cuts to Pain for Pride Eight as Tarah Nova overcomes nine other Vixen’s to retain that same championship. The song stops as the camera cuts to black and Xavier begins to speak.)

“Was it all worth it, Tarah?”

(The camera cuts to Reckless Wiring as Xavier Williams stands in the door way of that Barbed Wire Steel Cage.)

“You’re forced to pay the ultimate price for this mistake.”

(The camera cuts to Xavier Williams and Tarah Nova standing inside the cage as Rex McAllister locks the door before cutting back to black.)

“At the hand of the monster you created…”

(The camera fades in to the face of Xavier Williams as he slowly raises his head; the hint of a smile can be seen through the hair that hangs in front of his face.)

“This isn’t going to be a battle, nor will it be a war…”

(A single of line of “Hurts Like Hell” plays once more as the camera cuts back to black.)

“And it hurts like hell…”

(The camera cuts to shot of Reckless Wiring as the Barbed Wire Steel Cage slowly raises after Tarah Nova had been brutalized.)

“It’s going to be a slaughter.”

(The camera fades to black with Xavier Williams being taken away by Quality Control and medical staff helps Tarah inside the ring. The camera cut back to the ring where the Ring Announcer stands ready.)

(“Boss’ Daughter hits as Tarah Nova slowly makes her way through the curtain and onto the stage to a THUNDEROUS ovation. Her arm still supported by a black cast with the date “2-8-15” written on it in red; Tarah takes a look down at her arm before slowly heading down to the ring.)

Masters: What has to be going through the mind of this woman as he walks down that ramp? Tarah Nova has told everything that’s tried to stand in her way to stop her from competing tonight to stay out of busy. In her mind, this is a war that she NEEDS to fight, but with one arm… she’s up for one hell of a climb.

Mercer: Just say it Masters – Tarah Nova CAN’T win tonight! She’s forced to step into the ring against the BEST IN THE WORLD with ONE ARM! ONE FREAKING ARM, MASTERS! The Vixen could barely defend herself with two! What is she going to do with one arm against the Hall of Fame Champion?

Masters: Fight.

Mercer: Lose.

(“Dream On” – Aerosmith hits as Xavier Williams makes his way through the curtain with the Hall of Fame Championship around his waist. The hint of a smile crosses the face of the champion as he stands on the stage with his eyes completely locked on the Vixen that stands in the ring, unaffected by the abundance of boo’s that echo off the walls of the arena. Xavier slowly makes his way down to the ring, ducking and weaving under and around the ladders that are placed down the ramp and ringside before entering the ring.)

Mercer: HERE HE IS, MASTERS! THE BEST IN THE WORLD! THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION! THE ANGEL OF DEATH! THE DESTROYER OF TARAH NOVA’S CAREER! THE UNBEATABLE! THE UNTOUCHABLE! XAVIER MOTHERFREAKIN’ WILLIAMS! ADMIT IT MASTERS! ADMIT THAT TARAH NOVA DOESN’T HAVE A CHANCE IN HELL OF WALKING OUT OF HERE TONIGHT AS THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!

Masters: I beg to differ.

Mercer: ADMIT IT!

Masters: I ask the same thing as I did with Tarah. Imagine what has to be going through the mind of Xavier Williams. This has been brewing in the back of his mind for a YEAR. This man isn’t going to be fighting with a gameplan; this man is fighting with the intention of hurting Tarah Nova. He’s going to be fighting with the intention of ending her career, which in all, WILL cause the man the make mistakes and it only takes one mistake for Tarah Nova to climb that ladder and take that championship. But as for now, we’ll take to back to the ring for the formal introductions.

(Xavier Williams stands in the middle of the ring, his eyes still completely locked on Tarah Nova as he unhooks the Hall of Fame Championship from around his waist and raises it high into the air. He slowly backs into the corner as the ring announcer begins the introductions.)

Ring Annoucer: The following contest is a Ladder Match… AND IT IS FOR THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONSHIP! The rules are simple; the first person to climb a ladder and unhook that championship will be the Hall of Fame Champion. Introducing first… the challenger from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in tonight at 119 POOUNNDSS!!! SHE IS “THE VIXEN’S KILLER”… TAAARRAAHH NOOOOVVVVAAAAA!!!!

(The crowd erupts as the camera cuts to Tarah standing in her corner almost stoic.)

Ring Announcer: And introducing the champion from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in tonight at 215 POOUNDSS!!! HE IS THE SELF PROFESSED “BEST WRESTLER IN THE WORLD”… HE IS “SHI NO TENSHI”… THE HALL OF FAME CHAAAMMPPPIOONNN!!!!! XAAAAVVVIIEEERRR WILLLLLIIIIIIAAAMMSSSSS!!!!

(The hint of a smile returns to the face of Xavier as he takes one last look at the Hall of Fame Championship before handing it over to the referee. The referee shows Tarah, but she doesn’t look, instead remaining focused on what’s at hand. The referee places the Hall of Fame Championship on the hook and it’s slowly lifted 20ft into the air.)

(Ding, Ding, Ding!)

Masters: The bell rings and this ladder match is now underway; both participants taking a look at that Hall of Fame Championship that hangs above the ring before turning their attention back to their respective opponents. That smile returning to the face of Xavier Williams as he slowly makes his way forward; Tarah remaining unmoved, almost allowing Xavier to cut off the ring. Xavier slowly creeping toward as Tarah takes a step back into the corner; Xavier SWINGS WITH A WILD RIGHT, BUT TARAH NOVA’S ABLE TO DUCK UNDERNEATH AND MEETS THE CHAMPION WITH A STIFF CHOP OF THE CHEST! Tarah Nova immediately follows it up with a forearm to the jaw! Chop! Forearm! Chop! Forearm! Chop! Forearm! Tarah Nova relentlessly beating away at the Hall of Fame Champion, but Xavier Williams is able to turn it around AND FIRES BACK WITH A VICIOUS EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! TARAH NOVA TRYING TO COVER UP, BUT THE POWER BEHIND THOSE STRIKES SEEMS TO CONTINUOUSLY BREAK THROUGH THE GUARD! Xavier Williams sending Tarah Nova across the ring AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT THAT CONNECTS FLUSH OF THE JAW OF THE CHALLENGER! Tarah Nova stumbling out of the corner and drops down to her hands and knees as Xavier Williams shakes his head. Tarah Nova pushing herself back to a knee – BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS DRIVES THE POINT OF THE KNEE INTO THE SIDE OF HER HEAD! Tarah Nova dropping back down to her hands and knees AND XAVIER WILLIAMS DOESN’T RELENT IN THE SLIGHTEST! ANOTHER KNEE TO THE HEAD! ANOTHER!

Mercer: Xavier Williams rolling under the bottom rope and to the outside, grabbing the first ladder and bringing it into play! Tarah Nova gingerly beginning to stir as Xavier Williams slides back into the ring and places that ladder into the corner. Tarah Nova pushes herself back to a knee as Xavier Williams lifts her back to her feet AND JUST LAUNCHES HER SPINE FIRST INTO THAT LADDER! TARAH NOVA’S SPINE JARRING IN PAIN AS SHE BOUNCES AWAY LIKE NOTHING MORE THAN A RAGDOLL! Tarah Nova rolling under the bottom rope, trying to gain some form of distance between her and the champion – BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS LAUNCHES HIMSELF THROUGH THE ROPES AND SENDS TARAH NOVA CRASHING BACK INTO THE BARRICADE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! TARAH NOVA JUST SITS AGAINST THAT BARRICADE IN A COMPLETE DAZE AS XAVIER WILLIAMS SHOOT BACK UP TO HIS FEET! Xavier Williams searching under the ring, perhaps this match is going to delve into more chaos than just ladders! Xavier Williams pulls out a steel chair and throws it over the top rope and into the ring! Kendo Sticks! What’s next? Xavier Williams dragging out a baseball bat from under the ring and slides it under the bottom rope, but the man STILL doesn’t look finished. Xavier Williams taking a look back at Tarah Nova who’s now trying to push herself back up before pulling out… a black bag? There could only be two things inside that bag and I KNOW that neither of them are going to end well for Tarah Nova! Xavier Williams places that black bag under the bottom turnbuckles – BUT TARAH NOVA FROM BEHIND PUSHES XAVIER WILLIAMS INTO THAT STEEL RINGPOST!

Masters: Xavier Williams stumbles away as Tarah tries to shake out of the cobwebs; Xavier Williams able to compose himself, BUT TARAH NOVA USING THE STEEL STEPS TO LEAP INTO THE AIR AND SENDS THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION CRASHING INTO THE EDGE OF OUR TABLE WITH A HURRICANRANA! Xavier Williams slamming his fist on that thin padding as Tarah Nova grabs the time keepers chair AND LAUNCHES IT AT THE HEAD OF XAVIER WILLIAMS AS HE MAKES HE WAY BACK TO A KNEE! Tarah looking up at the Hall of Fame Championship hanging above the ring and knows that she’s going to have to do a mile more to the man that’s pushing himself back up to his hands and knees before she’ll be able to finally grasp it. Tarah Nova picking that chair back up as Xavier Williams pushes himself back to a knee AND TARAH DRIVES THAT CHAIR INTO HIS SPINE! Xavier dropping back down to his hands and knees AND TARAH NOVA DRIVES THE EDGE OF THAT CHAIR INTO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! THE ARMS OF XAVIER WILLIAMS ALMOST GOING LIMP AFTER THAT SHOT – AND TARAH NOVA DOES IT AGAIN TO THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION AS HE LIES DOWN FACE FIRST ON THAT THIN PADDING THAT COVERS THE CONCRETE FLOORING! Xavier Williams slowly rolls onto his back and Tarah Nova places the chair across his chest, before grabbing a ladder and sliding it under the bottom rope and into the ring. Xavier Williams slowly beginning to stir as Tarah Nova makes her way back onto the apron and taking another look at that Hall of Fame Championship, AND TARAH NOVA CHARGES ACROSS THE APRON BEFORE LEAPING OFF AND DRIVING THAT STEEL CHAIR INTO THE RIBS OF XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH A DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP!

Mercer: COME ON, XAVIER – DON’T LET THIS WOMAN DO THIS TO YOU! Tarah Nova pushing herself back to her feet, you can see that the landing may have aggravated that injured arm from Reckless Wiring, but Tarah continues to fight through the pain. Tarah rolling back into the ring and begins to set that ladder up in the middle of the ring before beginning to make that long climb to the top! Xavier Williams defiantly dragging himself up with the help of the apron as Tarah Nova makes each step closer to that Hall of Fame Championship. Tarah’s nearing the top, but Xavier Williams has made his way back into the ring! Tarah Nova taking a look at the Hall of Fame Championship and back down at Xavier Williams who’s dragging himself back to his feet; Tarah Nova looks to be in two minds, but has seemed to have turned her attention back to the champion! Tarah Nova’s about three quarters of the way up at ladder at Xavier Williams makes it back to his feet! OH MY GOD, TARAH LEAPS – BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS CUTS HER OFF IN MID AIR, LAUNCHING THAT STEEL CHAIR HE HAD THROWN INTO THE RING DIRECTLY AT HER! TARAH NOVA CRASHES AND BURNS, AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN YOU MAY WANT TO PUT YOUR CHILDREN TO BED! What was once a smile has now turned to a NASTY scowl as Xavier Williams picks that steel chair back up; nothing but bad intentions on the mind of Xavier Williams AS HE DRIVES THAT STEEL CHAIR INTO THE SPINE OF THE CHALLENGER! AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN! XAVIER WILLIAMS TRYING TO BREAK THAT STEEL CHAIR ACROSS THE SPINE OF THE CHALLENGER! Xavier Williams grabbing that injured forearm and places his foot on the upper part of Tarah’s arm! Xavier Williams still with steel chair in hand – OH MY GOD! XAVIER WILLIAMS JUST DROVE THE EDGE OF THAT CHAIR INTO THE ARM OF TARAH NOVA! TARAH NOVA SCREAMING IN PAIN, WHICH SEEMS TO BRING NOTHING LESS THAN PLEASURE TO THE FACE OF THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!

Masters: TARAH NOVA IS DEFENSELESS! HE DOES IT AGAIN! Tarah Nova clutches that arm as Xavier Williams turns his attention towards that ladder… and he just pushes it down? Xavier Williams shaking his head, almost as if he’s saying that he isn’t finished with Tarah Nova; that he’ll grab that championship when he’s ready. That arm of Tarah Nova may have just been rendered useless after those shots with that steel chair, but she still wills herself back up with the help of the corner! Xavier Williams’ like an animal that’s stalking his prey; Tarah slowly getting back to her feet AND THE MOMENT THAT SHE DOES, XAVIER WILLIAMS DRIVES THAT FOREARM FLUSH ON THE JAW! Tarah Nova stumbling out of the corner, but that champion doesn’t let her drop down to the canvas; instead he takes her down with a neckbreaker! Xavier Williams just sitting there as Tarah Nova continues to clutch at the injured arm; what has to be going through the mind of the man? Xavier Williams allowing Tarah Nova to push herself back to her feet; Xavier taking a look at his surrounding environment as Tarah makes her way back to a knee. Tarah’s finally back up to a vertical base, but Xavier meets her with a spinning back kick! SCISSORS STOMP! DISCUS FOREARM! TARAH HAS TO BE OUT ON HER FEET – WHAT A KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF TARAH NOVA! NO, TARAH DUCKS! LOW BLOW! TARAH NOVA WITH A LOW BLOW TO XAVIER WILLIAMS! THAT’S CERTAINLY A WAY TO TAKE THE WIND OUT OF A MAN’S SAILS!

Mercer: THE VIXEN’S KILLER HAS TO RESORT TO HITTING A MAN BELOW THE BELT?! But LOOK – LOOK AT TARAH, MASTERS! STRAIGHT BACK TO THAT ARM! SHE CAN’T CAPITALIZE BECAUSE OF THE DAMAGE DONE TO THE ARM!. The pain running through the arm of Tarah has to be excruciating AND TARAH NOVA WITH A PUNT LIKE KICK TO THE TOP OF THE HEAD OF THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION! A stunned Xavier Williams slowly pushing himself back up onto his knees – CRAZED DAZED! THE MOMENT XAVIER WILLIAMS MADE IT BACK TO HIS KNEE, TARAH NOVA CRACKS HIM IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A SUPERKICK! XAVIER WILLIAMS DROPPING BACK DOWN ONTO HIS HANDS AND KNEES, BUT TARAH NOVA – OH MY GOD!! NO!! NO!! NO!! RUDE AWAKENING!! CURB STOMP TO THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION! GOD DAMN IT, IT CONNECTS! COME ON, XAVIER! TARAH NOVA TRYING TO LIFT THAT LADDER UP TO BEGIN THAT LONG CLIMB UP, BUT SHE’S STUCK USING THE ONE ARM! TARAH, FINALLY GETS IT UP AND BEGINS TO INCH HERSELF CLOSER TO THE TITLE! XAVIER WILLIAMS DRAGGING HIMSELF TOWARD THE LADDER, BUT HE LOOKS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT! TARAH’S GETTING CLOSER… STOP HER, XAVIER! GET THE (CENSORED) UP! XAVIER’S BACK TO A KNEE AND GRABS THE FOOT OF TARAH NOVA! TARAH TRYING TO KICK HIM AWAY… AND DOES SUCCESSFULLY! XAVIER WILLIAMS STUMBLING BACK – TARAH HAS HER FINGERS ON THE TITLE! BUT… LOOK AT XAVIER! XAVIER’S ABLE TO PULL THE LEGS OUT FROM UNDER THE CHALLENGER!

Masters: TARAH LANDS ON HER FEET – BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS ALMOST KNOCKS HER TEETH DOWN HER THROAT WITH A SUPERKICK! TARAH DUCKS – STEP UP ENZIGURI! XAVIER WILLIAMS FALLING BACK INTO THE LADDER; THE ONLY THING THAT SEEMS TO BE KEEPING THE MAN UPRIGHT! TARAH NOVA GRABBING THAT KENDO STICK THAT’S IN THE CORNER AS XAVIER STUMBLES FORWARD – TARAH NOVA SWINGS THAT KENDO STICK AND IT CONNECTS FLUSH TO THE RIBS! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTH – XAVIER CAUGHT IT! XAVIER WILLIAMS RIPPING THAT KENDO STICK OUT OF THE HANDS OF TARAH NOVA AND THROWS IT OUT OF THE RING! WHAT THE… TARAH NOVA ALMOST SLAPS THE TASTE OUT OF THE MOUTH OF XAVIER WILLIAMS?! THIS VIXEN’S… SHE’S INSANE! SHE WANTS TO PISS THE MAN OFF MORE THAN HE ALREADY IS! LOOK AT THE EYES OF THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION… HE’S LOST IT! XAVIER WILLIAMS SWINGS WITH A WILD LEFT HAND, BUT TARAH DUCKS UNDERNEATH! ANOTHER CRAZED DAZE! ANOTHER SUPERKICK! XAVIER WILLIAMS CAUGHT THE LEG! XAVIER WILLIAMS CAUGHT THE LEG OF THE CHALLENGER! XAVIER SWINGS THE LEG AROUND AND – GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY! XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH A ROLLING ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF TARAH NOVA! XAVIER WILLIAMS GRABS HER BY HER HAIR BEFORE SHE’S ABLE TO PLUMMET DOWN TO THE CANVAS AND LIFTS HER UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! DOUBLE KNEE GUTBUSTER! ALL THE AIR DRIVEN OUT OF THE LUNGS OF TARAH NOVA! TARAH NOVA SOMEHOW STUMBLING BACK TO HER FEET – SICK KICK! XAVIER WILLIAMS ALMOST TURNS HER INSIDE OUT WITH THAT SICK KICK!

Mercer: SHE WANTED TO POKE THE BEAR AND SHE’S GETTING MAULED FOR IT! XAVIER WILLIAMS MOUNTING TARAH NOVA AND JUST BEGINS TO FIRE AWAY WITH THOSE CLOSED FISTED SHOTS! ONE AFTER THE OTHER – ABSOLUTELY RELENTLESS FROM THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION! Xavier Williams finally relents, but only to make his way over to the corner and grabs that black bag we saw him pull out from under the ring earlier… What are the contents inside? I think we’re about to find out… oh my! OH MY! THOUSANDS OF THUMBSTACKS BEGINNING TO FALLS FROM THAT BLACK BAG! MEET YOUR FUTURE TARAH! LEARN TO ENJOY IT! Xavier Williams crouching down and grabs a handful of tacks… I KNOW WHAT HE’S GOT IN MIND! WE SEEN HIM DO THIS TO ALBERT HITCHMAN A FEW MONTHS AGO! XAVIER WILLIAMS GRABBING A HANDFUL OF TARAH’S HAIR AND FORCES THOSE THUMBTACKS INTO HER MOUTH! THE REFEREE TRYING TO INTERJECT HIMSELF, BUT THERE’S NO RULES! WHETHER ANYONE LIKES IT OR NOT, IT’S ALL LEGAL! TARAH NOVA PUSHING HERSELF UP TO A KNEE! HOLY (CENSORED)!!!!! KING’S FALL!! KING’S FALL TO TARAH NOVA! BLOOD FLIES FROM THE MOUTH OF TARAH NOVA AS HE PLUMMETS BACK FACE FIRST TO THE CANVAS! AND NOW, NOW XAVIER WILLIAMS GRABS THAT LADDER!

Masters: THE MAN IS SICK! WE NEED HELP OUT HERE FOR TARAH NOVA! BLOOD FLOWING FROM THE MOUTH OF THE FORMER VIXEN’S CHAMPION AS XAVIER WILLIAMS STEADIES THAT LADDER AND BEGINS TO CLIMB UP TOWARDS HIS CHAMPIONSHIP! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS AT THE TOP OF THE LADDER… HE HAS A HAND ON THE TITLE!… WHAT?! XAVIER WILLIAMS TAKES A LOOK AT TARAH NOVA TO DEFINITELY CLUTCHES ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE AND BEGINS TO CLIMB BACK DOWN?! COME ON! THE VIXEN IS DEFENSELESS! TARAH NOVA TRYING TO DRAG HERSELF UP, BUT SHE DOESN’T SEEM TO HAVE THE STRENGTH LEFT! What more can the man do; Tarah has fought with everything she possibly can, but Xavier Williams has just seemed to be too strong. I don’t like the smile across the man’s face as he soaks in this atmosphere. Xavier Williams leaves the ring and begins to search under the ring for something…

Xavier: And I think to myself…

Masters: What’s that?

Xavier: What a wonderful…

Masters: OH MY GOD!! NO!! NO!!

Xavier: World.

Masters: XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS THAT RAILROAD SPIKE! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS THAT WEAPON THAT THE MAN HE ONCE CALLED HIS MENTOR MADE FAMOUS! XAVIER WILLIAMS WALKING BACK UP THOSE STEEL STEPS AND ONTO THE APRON; THE BLOOD STILL COMING FROM THE MOUTH OF TARAH NOVA BUT I THINK THAT IT’S NOT GOING TO BE THE WORST PART OF HER NIGHT! Xavier Williams re-enters the ring; please Tarah, just stay down. No, Tarah, STAY DOWN! Tarah Nova dragging herself back up as Xavier Williams stalks with that railroad spike in hand.

Mercer: GET UP, TARAH! THERE’S NO ONE LEFT TO SAVE YOU! DEDEDE’S GONE! YOU WANTED THIS! YOU WANTED TO STAND ON YOUR OWN AND THE BEST WRESTLER IN THE WORLD IS GOING TO KNOCK YOU BACK DOWN! TARAH SLOWLY, SLOWLY PULLING HERSELF BACK UP – AND THE MOMENT THAT SHE DOES, XAVIER WILLIAMS DRIVES THAT RAILROAD SPIKE INTO THE FOREHEAD OF TARAH NOVA! WAIT, WHAT?!

Masters: TARAH NOVA CUTS HIM OFF WITH A KICK TO THE GROIN! TARAH NOVA DOING WHATEVER SHE CAN TO SURVIVE! OH MY GOD! TARAH NOVA HAS THE RAILROAD SPIKE – AND SHE DRIVES IT INTO THE HEAD OF THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION! GO, TARAH! COME ON, GET THAT CHAMPIONSHIP! BLOOD POURING FROM THE GASH CREATED BY THAT RAILROAD SPIKE; TARAH NOVA NEEDS TO CAPITALIZE! TARAH NOVA FALLING BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS; SHE MAY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LEFT, BUT THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION HAS TO BE COMPLETELY OUT OF IT! TARAH NOVA DRAGGING HERSELF; SCRATCHING AND CLAWING HER WAY CLOSER TO THE LADDER! TARAH’S FINALLY THERE AND NOW HAS TO START THAT LONG CLIMB TO THE TOP! TARAH NOVA STRUGGLING WITH THE PAIN IN THAT ARM, BUT SHE’S DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO FIGHT THROUGH! SHE’S SO CLOSE! XAVIER WILLIAMS SLOWLY STARTING TO STIR! TARAH HAS HER FINGERS ON THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONSHIP! SHE HAS IT! TARAH HAS THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONSHI— NO!! NO! NO! NO! NO! OH MY GOD!! XAVIER WILLIAMS TIPPED THE LADDER!

TARAH NOVA FALLING BACK THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE; XAVIER WILLIAMS HOLDING ONTO THE TOP ROPE, MAYBE THE ONLY THING KEEPING THE MAN STANDING!

Mercer: WHAT A MOVE FROM THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION! NOW CLIMB THAT LADDER AND RETRIEVE THAT CHAMPIONSHIP, AND THAT’S WHAT HE LOOKS TO BE DOING! XAVIER WILLIAMS SLOWLY CLIMBING THAT LADDER; HIS FACE A COMPLETE CRIMSON MASK! XAVIER WILLIAMS REACHES THE TOP AND UNHOOKS THE CHAMPIONSHIP! XAVIER WILLIAMS WINS! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS RETAINED THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONSHIP!

(Ding, Ding, Ding!)

(“Dream On” – Aerosmith hits as Xavier Williams slumps forward over the top of the ladder; the Hall of Fame Championship hangs from his right hand as Tarah Nova recovers on the outside.)

Ring Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… AND STIIIIIILLLLLLLL THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!!!! XAAAAVVVIIIIEERRR WIIILLLLLLLLIIIIAAAMMSSSS!!!!!!!

Mercer: WHAT DID I SAY, MASTERS! I TOLD YOU! I TOOOLLLLDDD YOU WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN AND I WAS RIGHT! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS SLAUGHTERED TARAH NOVA! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS RETAINED THAT HALL OF FAME CHAMPION! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS PROVEN WHY HE IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD, AND TONIGHT, XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS INCH HIMSELF CLOSER TO THE TITLE OF THE BEST EVER!

Masters: You were right, Mercer. Are you happy now?

Mercer: I’M MORE THAN HAPPY, MASTERS!

Masters: Xavier Williams HAS retained the Hall of Fame Championship, but in doing so the man was forced to go through a fight that I think VERY few people thought that Tarah Nova was going to give him. Tarah Nova has absolutely nothing to be ashamed of tonight; she gave it her all. She was FINGERTIPS away from winning the Hall of Fame Championship, but tonight wasn’t her night.

Mercer: She can go share a hospital bed with the FORMER Answers World Champion.

Masters: Closer to a woman than you’re going to get, pal.

(Xavier Williams slowly climbs down the ladder as Tarah drags herself back into the ring.)

Masters: She isn’t going to let the man win. She isn’t going to let the man keep her down.

(Xavier Williams stands on the apron looking back at Tarah who continues to try push herself up.)

Masters: OH MY… OH MY GOD! REX MCALLISTER! REX MCALLISTER JUMPING UP ONTO THE APRON – COME ON, NOT AGAIN! HRDO, SHIELDS, SOMEBODY!

(Rex starts to enter the ring, but Xavier Williams stops him. He slightly nod his head at Tarah before jumping back off the apron and beginning to make his leave.)

Mercer: WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!

Masters: I never once thought that we’d see this, Mercer. I think that Tarah Nova may have finally earned his respect after the fight she put up tonight.

(Tarah drops back down to her hands and knees and Xavier Williams stands on the stage with Rex. Xavier raises the Hall of Fame Championship high into the air as he uses his free hand to slick his bloodstained hair back. Xavier makes his leave as the camera fades to black.)

( Commercial Break )

(A video package plays, highlighting the feud between Drake & Jones and Cerberus, starting with Drake & Jones’ victory over Stand & Deliver at Reckless Wiring, the handicap match against The Pizza Boy and attempt to end his career before the newly-united Cerberus made the save, and the ongoing rivalry between the two teams since then)

(Camera cuts back to Notre Dame Stadium as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpPP_JmgeUQ plays all throughout the arena while the crowd suddenly erupts with cheers)

Announcer: The following tag team contest is scheduled for ONE fall…. And is for the EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIIIIPPPPPPSSSS!!…..

(The crowd continues to loudly cheer as Brian Daniels and Cyclone make their way out to the stage in red and black attire while The Pizza Boy follows behind)

Announcer: First, the challengers…. Making their way towards the ring, accompanied by The Pizza Boy!…. THEY ARE THE TEAM OF…. BRIAN DANIELS…. CYCLONE…. THEY ARE CEEEEERRRRRRRRBBBBBEEEEERRRRRRUUUUUUSSSS!!!….

Stew: This may be a newly-founded alliance in EAW, but there’s absolutely NO doubting the ability of these two men.

Deadprez: Oh, I agree, Stew. There’s NO doubting the abilities of these two…. Individually. But as a Tag Team? I’m not so sure.

Stew: Well they’ve proven to be pretty well-versed in tag team competition thus far, but whether they’re fit to knock off one of the most dominant Tag Teams in EAW History such as Drake & Jones remains to be seen. Nonetheless, win or lose, they’re gonna bring one Hell of a fight to the Champions’ doorstep after all they’ve done.

(Gun shots are heard loudly all throughout the arena)

(“Bite The Bullet” by contRoVersy plays all throughout Notre Dame Stadium as Drake Jaeger – dressed in green attire with a pyro gun in hand – and Tiberius Jones – dressed in blue attire with a t-shirt gun in hand that he immediately starts directly shooting at people in the crowd – make their way out to the stage, carrying their EAW Tag Team Championships and taunting as the South Bend crowd loudly boos)

Announcer: And their opponents!…. Making their way towards the ring…. Weighing in at a combined weight of 408 Pounds!…. THEY ARE THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING E-A-W TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD…. THEY ARE THE TEAM OF…. “THE BRAZEN BEAST”, TIBERIUS JONES…. “OP” DRAKE JAEGER…. THEY ARE DRAKE! AND!! JOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!….

Stew: As much as you hate to admit it with how these two men act, you simply can’t deny how much Drake & Jones has just DOMINATED the Tag Team Division since arriving on the scene soon after the formation of Hexa-gun near the end of 2015.

Deadprez: Damn right: First EVER Tag Team Grand Prix Winners? Check. EAW Tag Team Champions? Check. Hell, I don’t think these two men have EVER even been defeated in Tag Team competition! Cerberus better hope to God they’re as good as a team as they’ve been as individuals over the course of their careers, because a victory here won’t come easy!

(Drake & Jones stand across the ring from Cerberus while Pizza Boy remains on the outside… The Referee takes the EAW Tag Team Championships and holds them up for both teams and everyone in the Stadium to see before handing them off to a crew member at ringside. The Referee then calls for the bell to start the match)

(An EAW Tag Team Championship graphic appears across the screen briefly as the bell rings)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: This Tag Team Championship bout is OFFICIALLY underway here tonight in South Bend at the 9th Annual Grand Rampage as it looks like Drake Jaeger and Brian Daniels are gonna start off this one for their respective teams… Daniels still trying to–

Drake (no mic): YAMCHA’D!!!

Deadprez: DRAKE JAEGER WITH THE YAMCHA’D!!! NO–DANIELS SEES IT COMING AND DUCKS THE SUPERKICK!

Drake (no mic) YAMCHA’D!!!!

Stew: DRAKE LOOKS FOR THAT SUPERKICK ONCE MORE, BUT AGAIN, DANIELS DODGES!

Drake (no mic): YAMCHA’D, YAMCHA’D, YAMCHA’D!!!!

Deadprez: HE KEEPS GOING BACK TO THE WELL, TRYING TO CONNECT WITH THIS SUPERKICK AS DANIELS KEEPS AVOIDING IT!! Drake finally puts his attempts to a halt as he tells Daniels to back off so he can catch his breath! Looks like those attempts at such a devastating maneuver took a lot out of him!

Stew: CAUSTIC ECHO?!!!! DRAKE JUST NARROWLY AVOIDS IT AS HE FALLS DOWN!

Deadprez: DRAKE’S DEMANDING A TIMEOUT! COME ON, DANIELS!

Stew: I DON’T THINK HE GIVES A DAMN A HE BURSTS FORWARD WITH A PENALTY KICK!! NOBODY’S HOME AS DRAKE DODGES AND CATCHES DANIELS WITH A SCHOOLBOY ROLL UP! NOT EVEN A ONE COUNT BEFORE DANIELS KICKS OUT! Both men quickly scramble to get back to a vertical base! Daniels rushes in, and he’s quickly caught by Jaeger with a side headlock takedown!

Drake (no mic): Best technical wrestler in the World!

Stew: I think Drake may be kind of jumping the gun on that moniker… Daniels quickly catches the head of Jaeger in a headscissors to break the side headlock! Drake’s doing all he can to escape it! He manages to force himself out of the headscissors and quickly back to his feet as he tries to catch Daniels with a boot to the face! Nobody’s home as Daniels dodges and promptly kips back up! Jaeger turns around and swings for him, only to be caught with a hip toss! Drake sits up–And Daniels with a LOUD shoot kick to the spine of Jaeger! Daniels now with a headlock of his own as he grounds Jaeger!

Tiberius (no mic): Go for the beard, Drake! Pull at his stupid beard!

Deadprez: I don’t think Drake can hear the words of wisdom coming from his team’s corner at the moment as Daniels tightly squeezes his skull in this headlock.. Drake Jaeger’s doing all he possibly can to get out of this, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be able to easily escape with the grip Daniela has on him! Jaeger’s looking to get himself back to his feet… Slowly but surely… And he drives an elbow into the gut of Daniels on his way up! Another elbow–No! Daniels catches the incoming elbow as he breaks the headlock and immediately wrenches that arm of Drake! Drake once again finds himself overpowered and being forced down to the canvas with his arm caught and wrenched by his opponent! Daniels now getting Drake’s arm in place on the canvas… AND STOMPS RIGHT DOWN ONTO IT! Drake writhes in pain on the canvas as he desperately scoots his way to his team’s corner! He manages to get the tag to Tiberius Jones!

Stew: Daniels doesn’t even care! Look at him! He’s gesturing for the hesitant Tiberius to join him in the ring! He’s prepared to take both members of Drake & Jones on! And Tiberius…. Says no?

Deadprez: It seems Tiberius refuses to get in the ring! He drops down from the apron, shaking his head and drags Drake out of the ring! It looks like he intends to make another tactical retreat here tonight! Drake & Jones are leaving this match right off the bat! They don’t need this! Cerberus clearly isn’t taking this contest as seriously as them!

Stew: But look at this! Cyclone and The Pizza Boy cut Drake & Jones off at the bottom of the ramp! This isn’t gonna end well!

Deadprez: INCOMING!! SUICIDE DIVE!!! SUICIDE DIVE FROM BRIAN DANIELS OUT OF NOWHERE AS HE CRASHES INTO BOTH DRAKE JAEGER AND TIBERIUS JONES!! It seems like the Champions are staying in this match whether they like it or not! Daniels is back up with Jones in his grasp as he sends him rolling back into the ring! Jones is hurt, but realizes he’s in trouble as he tries to escape! DANIELS NAILS HIM WITH A LOUD SHOOT KICK! Jones drops to both knees in pain as Daniels nails him with another shoot kick! Another shoot kick connects loudly off the sternum of Jones! Another! Another! AND ANOTHER! Daniels makes his way over to his team’s corner and tags in Cyclone! The crowd cheers them on as Cyclone enters the ring, grabs the wrist of Jones, drags him back up, and pulls him in for a vicious clothesline! He pulls him right back up… And a second vicious clothesline connects!

Stew: Cyclone drags him right back up as the Referee tells Daniels to get back to his team’s corner! Cyclone sets him up! DANIELS WITH A HIGH KICK TO THE SKULL OF JONES AS CYCLONE IMMEDIATELY CONNECTS WITH A BIG DRAGON SUPLEX!! CYCLONE GOES FOR AN IMMEDIATE COVER!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……….. TWO!!!!!!!!

Deadprez: And Jones kicks out! Cerberus is looking pretty impressive here in the early going as they’ve dominated the Champions thus far, but it’s not over until it’s over as Cyclone looks to follow up – dragging Jones back up once more and locking the waist! RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!! Jones manages to land on his feet! HE EXPLODES FORWARD WITH A LOUD RUNNING KNEE STRIKE OFF THE BACK OF A SITTING-UP CYCLONE’S SKULL!! Where did THAT come from?! Jaeger is back up on the apron, looking for the tag as Jones seems to be thinking the same thing! Cyclone favors the back of his head, working his way back to his feet… And Jones makes the tag to Drake! Drake looks fired up as he enters the ring! He rushes in with a flurry of knees and clubbing blows to a still damaged Cyclone! He turns Cyclone around and sets him up! ROCK THE DRAGON SUPLEX CONNECTS!

Stew: Drake’s not finished just yet as he drags the larger Cyclone back up, still in his grasp! A SECOND ROCK THE DRAGON SUPLEX CONNECTS!! He’s looking for the Hat Trick here as he drags him up once more! Cyclone’s fighting it! He nails Drake with an elbow to the side of the head and breaks out of that full nelson hold! Standing switch! HE PICKS DRAKE UP? LOOKING FOR RISING TIDE!!! NO–THE BURNING HAMMER IS NO GOOD AS JONES RUSHES IN WITH A BIG FOREARM TO THE FACE OF CYCLONE! Drake escapes off the back of Cyclone! DRAKE AND JONES WITH IMMEDIATE SIMULTANEOUS ROLLING ELBOWS TO THE FACE AND BACK OF CYCLONE’S SKULL!!! The Referee’s trying to get Jones back to his corner! Daniels now trying to get involved as the Referee gets in his way! He’s doing his damndest to maintain order here as Drake turns a woozy Cyclone around and picks him up on his shoulders! HE SENDS HIM UP! JONES RUSHES IN FOR A RUNNING CUTTER IN MID-AIR AS THE GO TO OUTTA NOWHERE CONNECTS!! DRAKE COVERS!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!!!

Deadprez: And it’s not enough to keep Cyclone down as he manages to kick out! Jones finally cooperates with the Official as an angered Drake Jaeger lays into a downed Cyclone! Drake with repeated stomps and clubbing blows to his opponent! Drake points to his partner in his team’s corner and starts dragging Cyclone back to his feet… Navigating Cyclone to the corner of Drake & Jones now! And Drake makes the tag to Jones! Tiberius immediately climbs up to the top turnbuckle as Drake sets Cyclone up… HE RUSHES UP THE CORNER FOR AN ASSISTED SHIRANUI–NO!! CYCLONE MANAGES TO CATCH DRAKE ON HIS SHOULDER! HE’S GOT HIM! HE LAUNCHES DRAKE INTO THAT TOP TURNBUCKLE AS TIBERIUS JONES LEAPS! HE COMES DOWN WITH A BIG MISSILE DROPKICK STRAIGHT INTO THE STERNUM OF CYCLONE!! Cyclone did his damndest to make a comeback there, but Jones is having none of it! The Champions know they’ve got to keep their opponent at their mercy for as long as it takes! That’s how you become one of the most dominant teams ever!

Stew: As much as I hate to admit it, you may be right as Jones is back up, pulling Cyclone with him, delivering clubbing blows to the spine and back of the head while Daniels looks as fired up as ever to get in this… Jones now… HE SUDDENLY SENDS CYCLONE STRAIGHT INTO THE GUT OF AN UNSUSPECTING BRIAN DANIELS IN CERBERUS’ CORNER!! THE PIZZA BOY CHECKS ON DANIELS AS A DAMAGED CYCLONE WOOZILY TURNS AROUND! KAMEHAMEHA!!! THAT BIG DOUBLE PALM-STRIKE CONNECTS OFF THE CHEST OF CYCLONE AS HE’S DOWNED!! JONES IS ON THE PROWL! CYCLONE IS AT HIS MERCY! JONES KNOWS HE’S MOMENTS FROM ENDING THIS AS HE SMUGLY GIVES THE PIZZA BOY THE MIDDLE FINGER WHILE CYCLONE STARTS TO CLIMB BACK TO HIS FEET! THE STRIKE OF MIDNIGHT!!!! THE STRIKE OF MIDNIGHT CONNECTS ON CYCLONE!!! JONES ROLLS HIM OVER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!

DOUBLE-TEAM BORDER TOSS TO THE OUTSIDE!!! DANIELS GOES FLYING AS THE PIZZA BOY RUSHES IN TO BREAK HIS FALL ON THE OUTSIDE!! DANIELS CRASHES DOWN ONTO THE PIZZA BOY!

Drake now dragging Cyclone back up… And he sends him into Drake & Jones’ corner, shoulder-first into the ringpost!! A damaged Tiberius Jones rises back to his feet and joins his partner in their corner as Drake has Cyclone trapped like a rat… Drake & Jones look at one another, and almost immediately and simultaneously start taking it to Cyclone with rapid backhand chops, elbows smashes, and headbutts!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: THEY DID IT!

(Cerberus’ theme plays all throughout Notre Dame Stadium as the crowd erupts with cheers while Drake Jaeger kicks out of the victory roll a second too late with a stunned look on his face as he realizes what just happened)

Stew: CERBERUS HAVE DONE IT!

Announcer: THE WINNERS OF THIS CONTEST BY PINFALL…. AND NNNNNNEEEEEEEWWWWWWW E-A-W TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS….. BRIAN DANIELS AND CYCLONE…. CEEEEEEEERRRRRRRBBBBBBBEEERRRRRRUUUSSS!!!!

Deadprez: I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS! THEY JUST STOLE THIS MATCH!

Stew: STOLE it?! They won it fair and square! Brian Daniels and Cyclone have just dethroned Drake & Jones here tonight in South Bend!

(An ecstatic Pizza Boy hands Brian Daniels and Cyclone the EAW Tag Team Championships as they make their way up the ramp while a shocked Drake & Jones look on from the ring)

Deadprez: Unbelievable, Stew! This can’t be right! Drake Jaeger kicked out!

Stew: He kicked out, but not soon enough, I’m afraid! That one second just cost the most dominant Tag Team in the company today their Championships! Their undefeated streak! They may be the more experienced team and proved that by how much of the bout they dominated, but all it takes is just one slip up for it all to come crashing down! Not to take anything away from Cerberus – they took one Hell of a match to Drake & Jones tonight, and their hard work just paid off tonight at the Grand Rampage!

Deadprez: This is ridiculous! Drake & Jones had their number in that match! This isn’t over! Drake & Jones aren’t finished with them yet, I guarantee you that!

Stew: DRAKE & JONES NOW LAYING INTO THE SECOND REFEREE THAT COUNTED THE FALL!! THIS IS DESPICABLE! I DON’T CARE HOW MAD THEY ARE, THEY CAN’T DO THIS! SOMEBODY STOP THESE GUYS!

Deadprez: They’re sending a message! Nobody humiliates Drake & Jones and gets away with it! Cerberus is gonna learn that!

(Drake & Jones throw the battered Referee out of the ring and start cussing at everyone around them as they take their leave)

( Camera returns to the arena…. )

( The EAW Championship graphic appears on the screen )

Ring Announcer: The following match is scheduled for one fall and will be contested for the EEELITTE ANSWERS WRESTLING CHAMPIOOONSHIPPPP!!!

(“Stroke God, Millionaire” by Dance Gavin Dance hits as a relaxed, almost indifferent Vic Vendetta walks down the aisle with the EAW Championship wrapped around his neck while hearing a loud chorus of boos along the way before entering the ring)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from New Orleans, Louisiana, weighing in at 256 pounds… He is the EAW Champion… VICTORRRR VENDETTTAAA!!!!

Masters: Tensions have been building between the Interwire Champion Mexican Samurai and Vic Vendetta for weeks now. Both have gained the upper-hand on various occasions so far, but in recent weeks Samurai has allowed his hotheadedness to get the best of him. Vic looks confident here tonight, composed and at ease with his situation. That’s a scary thought for Samurai.

(“Generator” by Doomtree hits as an alert Mexican Samurai walks down the ring with his Interwire Championship draped over his shoulder. He doesn’t bother greeting fans along the way but receives a loud mixed reaction nonetheless)

Mercer: Samurai looks a little jittery, a little nervous. If Vic recognizes this quickly, he might be able to capitalize.

Ring Announcer: And the challenger! From San Jose, California, weighing in at 210 pounds… He is the Interwire Champion… THE MEXICAN SAMURAIIIIII!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Masters: This match is underway! Samurai has started off by circling Vic Vendetta around the ring, but Vic’s not moving, he’s asking Samurai to bring it and the Interwire Champion is hesitant! Samurai signals for a greco-roman knuckle-lock and Vic is happy to oblige him, but Samurai fakes Vendetta out with a kick above the groin followed by a sputtering knee to the chest! Samurai darts off the ropes but Vic catches him before he can do anything and has him locked in for a hip toss. Vic tries to slam Samurai down but Samurai keeps his balance and lands on his feet! Vendetta’s shocked and Samurai wastes no time raking the eyes of the champion! Samurai lifts Vic Vendetta up in the air and sends him down, connecting with the tilt-a-whirl backbreaker and gloating over Vic’s fallen body! Samurai isn’t even close to being finished, he measures his prey and now connects with a high knee drop! THE PIN!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOOO….

Mercer: Vic kicks out! Vic hasn’t started this match the way he wanted to, but he’s a guy that can absorb a lot of punishment without being worse for wear. SAMURAI’S TAKING MATTERS INTO HIS OWN HANDS, HE’S APPLYING A KNEEBAR TO THE GROUNDED VIC VENDETTA! Samurai has the submission locked in and Vic isn’t anywhere NEAR the ropes! Vic has a significant size advantage in this match however, he’s using all of his strength and might to drag himself over to the ropes and catch a break. Vic’s nearing the rope, desperately trying to drape his arm over it, and now Samurai releases the kneebar and quickly stands up, dragging Victor Vendetta back in the center of the ring! ANKLE LOCK! Samurai has applied another devastating submission onto the EAW Champion and Vic is agonizing in pain right now! Samurai will not be denied tonight!

Masters: The referee is asking Vic Vendetta whether or not he wants to submit, but he’s saying no! Vendetta’s a glutton for punishment! WHAT’S THIS?! VENDETTA CONTORTS HIS BODY AND REVERSES THE ANKLE LOCK! INSIDE CRADLE PIN!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOO……. THRRRR–

Mercer: MEXICAN SAMURAI WITH THE KICKOUT! Vendetta’s still worn down from the all-around beating Samurai has given him thus far in this match, but what’s a magician without his tricks?! SAMURAI’S FAST UP TO HIS FEET AND HE ATTEMPTS A STANDING MOONSAULT! NO! VENDETTA ROLLS OUT THE WAY AND SAMURAI LANDS FACE-FIRST ON THE MAT! Vic Vendetta may have bought himself some time to recover!

Masters: Vendetta’s using the ring ropes for leverage to pull himself back up to his feet! He’s favoring his ankle after Samurai had that submission locked in, but he’s up to his feet and waiting for Samurai to join him. Samurai rises to his feet but has no idea what’s right behind him! BRIDGING DRAGON SUPLEX FROM VIC VENDETTA ONTO MEXICAN SAMURAI! THE PIN!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE…… TWOOOOOOO….

Masters: Samurai kicks out! Vic hit Samurai with that dragon suplex and it looked like Samurai may have landed smack-dab on his head, but Samurai is a fighter, he kicked out authoritatively at two! Vic Vendetta is banging his fists against the mat and complaining to the referee that the count was slow. Vic’s now dragging Samurai back up to his feet by the arm! Vic has Samurai up to his feet and he flips the bird! VIC FLIPS OFF SAMURAI AND HE’S SMACKING HIM ACROSS THE FACE! THE CHAMPION CLEARLY DOES NOT RESPECT SAMURAI! VIC SPITS IN SAMURAI’S FACE AND THAT LIVENS SAMURAI UP! SAMURAI CHARGES AT VIC VENDETTA AND FORCEFULLY TACKLES HIM AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE! SAMURAI WITH MULTIPLE HEADBUTTS TO THE MIDSECTION OF VIC VENDETTA AS HE’S BACKED AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE, ONE AFTER THE OTHER! SAMURAI IS ABSOLUTELY TEEING OFF ON VIC VENDETTA RIGHT NOW!

Mercer: And now Samurai is taunting Vic Vendetta, taking a moment to regain his breath and pointing at Vic! Samurai yells “LOOK AT YOUR CHAMPION!” to the crowd! No love lost and no love found between these two! NOW VIC VENDETTA WITH SOME PUSH-BACK, HE VIOLENTLY CHARGES AT SAMURAI FOR A CLOTHESLINE! NO! SAMURAI DUCKS! BACKSLIDE PIN ON VIC VENDETTA!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEE…… TWOOOOOOOO….. THRRR-

Masters: VIC VENDETTA KICKS OUT! Both champion and challenger rise to their feet at the same time and here comes Vic Vendetta charging! STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI! NOBODY’S HOME AS SAMURAI BENDS HIS HEAD DOWN AND EVADES THE MOVE BEFORE VENDETTA CAN CONNECT! AND NOW SAMURAI HAS VENDETTA IN A WAIST LOCK! BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX ONTO VIC VENDETTA AND HERE’S THE PIN!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEE….. TWOOOOOOOOOO…..

Mercer: Vic Vendetta shows his mettle with a kickout! Vendetta is proving that he deserves to be champion here tonight, but everything he’s thrown at Samurai the Interwire Champion has had a counter for! Samurai draws back up to his feet and he’s wondering what else he can do to put away Vic. NOW SAMURAI HAS VIC VENDETTA’S RIGHT LEG IN THE AIR AND HE’S TAUNTING HIM WITH A TWIRLING HAND GESTURE! HE’S GOING FOR THE FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK! SAMURAI HAS ONE LEG IN ATTEMPTING TO EXECUTE THE MOVE AND HE’S DETERMINED TO MAKE VIC TAP OUT! NO! VENDETTA KICKS MEXICAN SAMURA IN THE BACK RIGHT AS HE WAS ABOUT TO EXECUTE THE MANEUVER AND SENDS SAMURAI INTO THE RING ROPES! SAMURAI’S HEAD IS FLUNG OVER THE SECOND RING ROPE AND VIC SEES HIS WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY AND GETS UP IMMEDIATELY!

Masters: Vic Vendetta darts at the rope-hung Samurai and attempts a running stiff knee! SAMURAI MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND HIS KNEE GETS CAUGHT IN BETWEEN THE ROPES! VIC’S GOT NOWHERE TO GO! AND NOW SAMURAI CHARGES AT VENDETTA WITH A RUNNING BIG BOOT AND VIC IS DOWN! SAMURAI HAS A MENACING LOOK IN HIS EYES AND HE’S GESTICULATING THAT THE GOLD IS ABOUT TO BE AROUND HIS WAIST! VIC VENDETTA’S LAID OUT ON THE GROUND AND SAMURAI KICKS HIS ARMS TOGETHER, NOW CLIMBING OUT OF THE RING, ONTO THE APRON, AND GOING UP TO TOP ROPE! SAMURAI IS GOING AIRBORNE! HE ISN’T AN AERIAL-ORIENTED WRESTLER, THIS COULD BACKFIRE!

Mercer: AND SAMURAI LEAPS! SAMURAI STAB! SAMURAI STAB! SAMURAI LAUNCHED HIMSELF OFF THE TOP ROPE AND VICIOUSLY STOMPED THE FACE OF VIC VENDETTA! HE’S USING THOSE SAME TWO FEET TO WALK STRAIGHT INTO THE HALLOWED LIST OF EAW CHAMPIONS! SAMURAI HOOKS THE LEG AND HE HAS THE PIN! NEW EAW CHAMPION!

Ref: ONEEEEEE….. TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!! ….. THRRRRR–

Ref: THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Masters: MEXICAN SAMURAI IS BEING PRESENTED WITH THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP! HE’S DONE IT! HE’S CONQUERED VIC VENDETTA AND NOW HE REIGNS AS BOTH THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION AND THE EAW CHAMPION!

Mercer: NO! NO! THE REFEREE IS WAVING IT OFF! SAMURAI HAD THE PINFALL, BUT NOW HE’S SAYING VIC’S FOOT TOUCHED THE BOTTOM ROPE BEFORE THE COUNT OF THREE! SAMURAI IS STILL CELEBRATING WITH THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP AND HAS NO IDEA THAT HE DIDN’T WIN! THE REFEREE IS TALKING TO SAMURAI AND SAMURAI IS IN COMPLETE DISBELIEF! HE’S DROPPED THE TITLE AND IT’S LAID DOWN IN THE RING NOW!

Masters: But the referee is signaling over to the timekeeper’s area to ring the bell again and restart the match! THE MATCH IS GOING TO BE RESTARTED!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Mercer: The match has restarted and Mexican Samurai is returning his focus over to Vic Vendetta! Samurai is irate, he’s connecting a flurry of vicious stomps to Vic’s chest and now he’s yelling at him to get up and smacking a grounded Vic in the face! Samurai is none too pleased about the decision by the referee to overturn the match, now he’s dragging Vic by the arm back up to his feet! Samurai has his shoulder hooked over the neck of Vic Vendetta and he’s attempting a vertical suplex, but he can’t lift Vic Vendetta all the way up! Vic Vendetta struggles back down to his feet and now he’s connecting with multiple elbows and closed-fists punches to the midsection of Samurai! The referee is warning Vic about closing his fists, but Vic ignores the ref and continues punishing Samurai! Samurai’s back is down but he’s standing on his feet in the middle of the ring, and now Vic swings himself off the ropes for a shoulder block on Samurai! SAMURAI SPEEDS OUT OF THE WAY AND VIC LANDS ON THE MAT! I’M NOT SURE HOW MUCH MORE OF THIS VIC VENDETTA CAN HANDLE, HE’S EXERTED ALL OF HIS ENERGY AND SEEMS PHYSICALLY SPENT!

Masters: AND NOW SAMURAI WITH THE REAR NAKED CHOKE! REAR NAKED CHOKE! SAMURAI IS GOING TO FORCE VIC VENDETTA TO TAP OUT! SAMURAI IS GOING TO BECOME THE NEW EAW CHAMPION! VIC ISN’T TAPPING, HE’S THINKING ABOUT IT AND HE’S FLAILING HIS ARMS IN THE AIR TRYING TO KEEP HIMSELF IN THE MATCH, BUT HE’S NOT GOING TO HAVE ANY CHOICE! VIC IS GOING TO TAP!

Mercer: VIC’S STILL IN THIS! HE’S USING HIS FEET TO PUSH HIMSELF OVER TO THE CORNER, MAYBE TRYING TO GET A ROPE BREAK BUT I’M NOT SURE HOW REALISTIC THAT IS! THINGS ARE LOOKING BLEAK FOR THE EAW CHAMPION! BUT WHAT’S THIS?! VIC IS SOMEHOW NEARING THE ROPES, DRAGGING BOTH HE AND SAMURAI OVER AND RESISTING SUBMISSION! HE’S NOT TAPPING OUT! HE’S GOING OVER TO THE ROPES! I THINK HE’S GOT IT, BUT SAMURAI ISN’T BREAKING THE HOLD! SAMURAI IS REARING BACK AND APPLYING ALL OF THE FORCE IN HIS BODY ON THAT REAR NAKED CHOKE SUBMISSION! SAMURAI’S DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO MAKE VIC VENDETTA TAP! VIC’S GOT AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET TO THE ROPE!

Masters: WHAT THE HELL?! VIC GRABS THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP AND VIOLENTLY SWINGS IT AROUND HIS HEAD TO CONNECT FLUSH IN THE FACE OF MEXICAN SAMURAI! SAMURAI IS FORCED TO BREAK THE HOLD, BUT THAT’S A DISQUALIFICATION! SAMURAI WAS BEING PRESENTED WITH THE CHAMPIONSHIP WHEN EVERYBODY INITIALLY THOUGHT HE WON, BUT HE DROPPED IT IN THE RING WHEN THE MATCH RESTARTED AND LO AND BEHOLD VIC EXPLOITS IT! WHAT AN ACT OF COMPLETE DESPERATION AND COWARDICE BY VIC VENDETTA!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Generator” by Doomtree hits as Mexican Samurai’s hand is raised on victory while he’s grounded, but Samurai is still incapacitated and unaware of his surroundings after being hit with the championship)

Ring Announcer: The winner of this match by disqualification… THE MEXICANNNN SAMURAIIIIII!!!!

Mercer: Samurai walks away with the moral victory. Of course, he’s not actually walking right now. He’s still out cold in the ring.

Ring Announcer: However, as championships cannot change hands by disqualification under EAW rules, STILL your EAW Champion… VICTORRRR VENDETTTTTAAAAAA!!!!!

Masters: After everything he went through tonight, I don’t care if you like the guy or not, Mexican Samurai DESERVES that EAW Championship. Vic Vendetta weaseled his way out of this one!

(“Stroke God, Millionaire” by Dance Gavin Dance hits as Vic Vendetta takes his EAW Championship and walks up the ramp, only stopping and looking back to arrogantly wave bye at the crowd before doing the same to a dejected Mexican Samurai still in the ring)

( The camera transitions backstage and centers on a door. As the camera pans up it is revealed that it is the office of Showdown GM James Shields. Some chatter can be heard from behind the door. After a few seconds the door knob is seen turning and out walks James Shields, he takes a deep breath and wipes his forehead with his sleeve )

James Shieldsclapping his hands together: Well, I must say I am ecstatic that we were able to come to an agreement on a contract… Mr. Diamond.

( He gestures towards the door and out walks Scott Diamond wearing a red and black suit and sporting a burly beard. He looks at James Shields with a smug look on his face but eventually a slight grin starts to come across him )

Scott Diamond: Yeah… me too.

James Shields: And again, I made mention to it earlier in my office, there are spots open in the Grand Rampage match… one of them is yours if you want it!

Scott Diamond: As good as that sounds James, I’m gonna decline. You see, me coming back after what? A year? Being away from EAW for a year and then coming back and winning the Grand Rampage just like that snaps fingers, I can’t imagine that would sit too well with the ones who have looked forward to this night all year and who have put in the necessary work. I’m a happy man who just got A LOT of money, tonight I want to celebrate, I don’t want confrontation… I don’t want the target I left EAW with to tattoo itself on me again, on my very first night back. So no, but thank you anyway. I’ll see you next Saturday.

( Scott begins to walk off and the camera focuses in on James looking a bit disappointed, but it then zooms out as Scott steps back into frame )

Scott Diamond: You know what? On second thought that target is bound to find it’s way back onto me one way or another… count me in.

James Shields: OH! Excellent! Excellent! I’ll go make the arrangements now. And Scott before you go off and get ready, let me be the first to say WELCOME BACK! It’ll be great to have you on Showdown, I know it’s where you wanted to be, I know that you consider this brand your home. And sir, the feeling is mutual. Showdown wants you, Showdown needs you, EAW needs you! Have a wonderful night, and good luck!

( James Shields pats Scott on the shoulder and walks off as the camera fades out )

( Return to the stadium … the Vixens Championship graphic appears on the screen )

Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for….the EAW VIXENS CHAMPIONSHIP!

(“Sounds of Silence” by Disturbed plays as the lights dim throughout the arena, getting everywhere but the ramp as Madison Kaline comes down it wearing a special black and gold attire.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first the challenger, representing The Sanatorium! She is from Tampa, Florida……MADISOONNNN KALINEEEEEEE!!!!!

WWEFan: Madison Kaline’s hunt for gold has went from a desire to a flat out obsession. She wants the Vixens Championship more than anything and is willing to get it by any means, that includes joining up with The Sanatorium, a group who offered her the opportunity to strengthen her chances. Since then she has went from queen bee to straight up eerie, I would even say psychotic!

Kawajai: I would call her psychotic, but in a sense of how scary she thinks, the plans that she plots out. She thinks of every detail and every scenario. Case and point, Ryan Savage’s match with Eris and the set up that it was in order to wear down our champion. The strange thing is though, Madison is without The Sanatorium tonight. She’s letting them focus on Grand Rampage so she can do this on her own!

(“Call Me” by Blondie plays as Eris LeCava comes out with the Vixens Championship over her shoulder. She is sporting tattered jeans with long black boots over them and both of her fists taped up.)

Ring Announcer: And her opponent, introducing the champion! She is from Tampa, Florida…..The EAW Vixens Champion……ERIS LECAVAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

WWEFan: The history that Eris and Madison have extends to over six months, dating all of the way back to Shock Value for their initial title encounter, the very one where Eris won the championship and started her reign. Since then they have met in the ring many times and each time it looks like they’re going to tear each other’s heads off.

Kawajai: The bad blood these two have for each other has reached a major boiling point at this time. Notice how Eris LeCava isn’t even in regular gear, she’s got on an attire like she’s ready to fight!

(The referee raises up the Vixens Championship high above his head as the two challengers stand in their respective corners. He then hands the belt over to the time keeper’s area and signals for the bell.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: AS SOON AS THE BELL RINGS ERIS LECAVA CHARGES AT MADISON KALINE AND FORCES HER UP AGAINST THE CORNER! FURIOUS RIGHT HANDS BEING THROWN MADISON’S WAY AS SHE IS UNPREPARED FOR THIS FLURRY, UNABLE TO PUT HER HANDS UP! ERIS SWITCHES IT UP WITH STOMPS TO THE CHEST THAT GO FURTHER UP THE BODY AS MADISON SINKS DOWN! ERIS IS LETTING OUT ALL OF HER ANGER FROM WHAT SHE HAS HAD TO DEAL WITH FROM THE SANATORIUM THESE PAST FEW WEEKS! SHE PROMISED TO SHOW NO FEAR AND SHE HAS! The referee wants to get involved and stop this due to the needed break but as he gets between them, Eris manages to reach far enough to get a clump of Madison’s hair! Madison gets tossed halfway across the ring as I thought some of her hair would be pulled out by the roots there!

Kawajai: Eris LeCava is getting reprimanded by the official here but it seems to be going in one ear and out the other as Eris is in a hurry to get back to her rising opponent, pushing the referee away every time he tries to speak! She finally brushes him off and heads back over to Madison, but Madison goes for the legs and takes her down, catching Eris by surprise as she is mounted on top of the Vixens Champion and is looking for revenge, taking her nails and trying to claw at the eyes of Eris! Eris has her hand up and wishes to stop it but Madison still has a free hand herself and catches Eris in the face with a heavy punch to the face! Madison is pulled up by the referee, again trying to keep the rules in play here but with Madison stood up she just jumps up and delivers a double foot stomp directly to the sternum!

WWEFan: Eris is coughing up a storm as Madison takes her boot and is pressing it against Eris’ temple, trying to squeeze Eris’ head as it is squished between her and the mat! Madison goes for another stomp but with that split second Eris moves her head out of the way and takes her arm, cracking Madison in the knees so she falls down! Madison is vulnerable as Eris runs the ropes and delivers a hurricanrana while Madison is on her knees, meaning her head was just driven straight into the mat, no hang time or chance to flip over there! Madison may want to shake the cobwebs but she won’t have much time as Eris delivers a roundhouse that comes crashing into the side of her head! Eris shuffles on over to the corner now!

Kawajai: She goes between the ropes and is now scaling up all of the way to the top but it appears Madison has been able to recover much quicker than our champion expected! Madison with a push as Eris goes flying to the outside, hitting the steel barricade and falling over while holding her side! Just like that this match has taken a crazy turn! Madison is proud of her work and is feverishly waiting in the ring for Eris to get up! Eris won’t lay down and take a countout loss, something Madison knows as Eris drags herself up with the ring tarp, not noticing that Madison is about to come barreling into her with a baseball slide, sending her RIGHT BACK into that barricade!

WWEFan: Eris is leaned against that barricade as the fans are right in her ear, telling her to get back into this match! Eris isn’t exactly the nicest Vixen but with Madison’s recent actions it seems the EAW faithful have chosen the lesser of two evils. Their shouts of support might be the thing keeping Eris awake here as she has already taken massive damage due to that fall! She is able to push away from the barricade but as she does it’s time for Madison to hit the ropes! SUICIDE DIVE! NO! A FOREARM TO THE FACE STOPS MADISON IN HER TRACKS!

Kawajai: Madison is left hanging as she falls halfway, her legs hooked in the ropes! With Madison getting past the ropes the count can reset which is good for Eris, but not good for Madison who is now in enemy territory! Eris has her by the neck and then pulls her off the ropes! VERTICAL SUPLEX ONTO THE OUTSIDE! Eris isn’t done either! She sticks her head under the ropes and pulls back out to break the count the referee had once again as she then looks to the steel steps, walking up them and then running up the apron! 450 off of the apron onto Madison on the outside! Eris pulling out new moves from her arsenal!

WWEFan: Eris might be hurting herself from that high risk move as she is favoring her ribs! She gets up with hesitance and then picks up Madison Kaline, dragging her into the ring and then rolling her over onto her back, going for a cover as the ref gets in position to count!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!……TWOOOOOOO!!!!!……

Kawajai: Kick out by Madison as it is now back to the drawing board! That was a powerful kick out as Madison nearly turned over, something that could prove to be a big opening for Eris as she grabs that arm and is now working on transitioning into a crossface! Madison tilts over though and forces Eris off of her! Eris gets to her feet but Madison scrambles up quicker and knees her in the gut before then throwing Eris into the ropes! UP ERIS GOES IN A FLAPJACK! Madison taking control once again!

WWEFan: Eris is feeling those ribs yet again, she is slow in getting back up but when she does Madison is behind her! She pushes Eris into that middle turnbuckle with incredible force! Eris bounces off of the turnbuckle and falls backward into Madison who follows up with an overhead German that has Eris land on her neck! Madison walks over and kicks Eris around, taking her out of position as Eris was still folded like an accordion! Madison is going for a catapult into the very same corner now but as she falls back Eris saves herself while on the come up by grabbing the ropes before she hits the corner! She is then irish whipped before she can react but as she rebounds she responds with a superkick!

Kawajai: Oh, but Madison gets underneath that leg and brings it down, going for a kneebreaker of sorts that takes one of Eris’ legs out of the equation and leaves the other open for abuse! Elbow drop to the other leg of Eris! Eris has been grounded and as she tries to sit up, Madison takes her down with a wild swing, slamming right into her face! Madison is up and picks up Eris by the throat, wringing her neck around before bringing her up in the air! Madison showing great strength here as she makes a transition to slinging Eris over her shoulder, bringing her down with a slam!

WWEFan: Off of the ropes Madison goes looking for something big but Eris rotates her body and then takes Madison down in a drop toe hold! Madison is quick to try and get back up to her feet but there goes Eris with a wicked shining wizard! Eris hops up, turns around, checks on Madison’s body to see that she is still down and delivers a standing moonsault! INTO THE KNEES OF MADISON! Madison pulls Eris in and gets her into a modified version of an inside cradle, she could have it here!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!…….TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!……THRRR — KICKOUT!!!!!

Kawajai: Eris powered out of that cradle and is now shooting up to her feet at the same time as Madison Kaline. It’s a race to see who can get to their feet first and the race seems to have ended in a tie as they both reach their feet and collide with one another, bumping heads as they charge at their opponent! You can hear their skulls crack from the meeting of the minds as they fall back to the mat, hurting! They are going to need time to recover after something like that! They’re stirring but they are definitely not all there if you get what I mean! They can barely even grip the ropes as they crawl over and look for assistance getting up!

WWEFan: Madison is able to finally settle down and get away from the ropes but when she turns around — SHE IS HIT WITH A FLYING FOREARM BY ERIS! Madison is on wobbly legs and barely able to stand! Eris backs away looking for a second but then Madison gets past her guard and hits her with a JUMPING CLOTHESLINE!! Both ladies are pulling out new moves, they’ve faced each other so much they have to change it up to surprise the other! That right there is a great example of it as it worked perfectly! Eris nearly falls out, dropping into the ropes! Madison walks toward her and then grabs her by the arms! She’s wrapping the ropes around Eris LeCava’s arms! Eris is all tied up, she’s stuck there!

Kawajai: There’s nothing she can do right now! She was so shaken from the clothesline it was hard for her to fight back, but now that she has returned to her senses it might be too late! Madison is smiling deviously, she knows that Eris can’t do anything! She’s struggling in those ropes but that knot is too tight!

Madison Kaline (without microphone): You aren’t scared of me, huh? Oh, you will be soon enough….

WWEFan: Madison is slowly making her way to Eris, walking around her — BEFORE SUDDENLY DELIVERING A KICK AGAIN TO THOSE RIBS! AND THEN A STOMP TO THE SPRAWLED OUT LEGS OF ERIS! Eris shouts out in pain as Madison quiets her down with an uppercut! Madison is grabbing that hair of Eris’ and is using it so she can slam Eris face first repeatedly against her knee! The referee has had enough of this attacking while the opponent is in the ropes as he makes Madison give the woman some space! Eris seems to visibly have blood in her mouth as her teeth are starting to stain red! She’s coughing and trying to suck up air as it appears her nose got busted up too and thus making it difficult for her to breathe! The referee is working on getting those ropes around her arms untied but it may take some time as…HOLY HELL! MADISON COMES RUNNING INTO THE VULNERABLE BODY OF ERIS WITH A SPEAR AT ONE HUNDRED MILES PER HOUR! THE REFEREE HAD TO GET THE HECK OUT OF DODGE!

Kawajai: Did you see the look on Eris LeCava’s face as that move was delivered!? All of the air she was getting was pushed right out of her lungs as Madison plunged herself deep into Eris gut! The referee is furious over those actions and warns Madison of a possible disqualification, making sure she doesn’t go for another attack as he goes back to working on those ropes but the damage may already be done! FINALLY the ropes are loosened and Eris LeCava’s arms are free but that might have actually been the only thing keeping Eris up on her feet because she immediately starts sinking down, falling over in a heap from the abuse she has taken! She walks right into Madison who picks her up — AND THROWS HER LIKE A DART IN A REVERSE CRUCIFIX OF SORT! ERIS WAS TOSSED FACE FIRST AS IT SKIDDED ON THE CANVAS! I don’t know how she is even moving! Somehow Eris manages to pick herself up and wipes away any blood on her face before getting up and turning around but possibly INTO A SECOND SPEAR!

WWEFan: ERIS TURNED AROUND ALRIGHT BUT SHE SWUNG HER ARM IN A BACKHAND, CATCHING MADISON BEFORE THE SPEAR COULD HIT AND TEMPORARILY STUNNING THE CHALLENGER! Eris needs to capitalize and she needs to do so FAST! Eris runs up to Madison and stacks her shoulders onto the mat in a roll up! Madison reverses it before a count can be made by getting a hold of Eris’ waist and turning her over, trying to stack Eris up for a pin herself! Eris LeCava rolls through and is standing tall over Madison ; KICK TO THE FACE OF MADISON! Eris LeCava falls against the ropes but it still standing! The second wind she’s had isn’t over just yet as she raises up her hands to hype up the audience! She is feeling it now, she’s on a roll! She can see the victory right now, she’s waiting for Madison to get back up to finish this! This might be the only opening she has left!

Kawajai: Madison tiredly gets up and attempts a left hand which is ducked! Eris puts her hands around the body of Madison and goes to pick her up! Madison is doing her best to stay on the canvas but ERIS WITH ONE MORE PUSH UPWARD AS SHE IS ABLE TO LIFT MADISON’S FEET OFF OF THE GROUND! SHE SPINS OUT! BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! THE MOVE THAT SHE CALLS THE ON’NA! THAT WAS DELIVERED IN THE BEST WAY IT POSSIBLY CAN FROM ERIS AS YOU CAN TELL MADISON’S BACK IS DEFINITELY RATTLED FROM THAT MANEUVER! SHE IS DOWN FOR THE COUNT AS ERIS IS ON THE GROUND! ERIS IS BRUISED AND BATTERED, AND THAT EXTRA EXERTION FROM HAVING TO BRING MADISON UP LIKE THAT STRAINED HER GREATLY, DEFINITELY ADDING TO THE PAIN! SHE’S GOING TO HAVE TO FIGHT THROUGH IT THOUGH, SHE NEEDS TO COVER! SHE SETS HER SIGHTS ON MADISON AND BEGINS CRAWLING, MAKING HER WAY TO MADISON INCH BY INCH, REACHING FOR THAT LEG OF HERS SO SHE CAN HOOK IT FOR A COVER! SHE GETS TO MADISON AND GOES FOR A PINFALL — BUT MADISON! MADISON KNOWS WHAT’S ABOUT TO HAPPEN AND ROLLS AWAY! SHE HAS EXITED THE RING!

WWEFan: Very smart tactic by Madison Kaline, you can’t be pinned if you’re out of the ring! Madison is on the apron but Eris gets her by the back of her gear! Eris is not letting go! OH! SHE WILL HAVE TO BECAUSE MADISON IS NOW BITING ON THAT HAND OF ERIS! THE REFEREE SEES THIS AND TRIES TO GET MADISON OFF OF ERIS BUT IN THE CONFUSION MADISON TAKES HER NAILS AND CLAWS AT THE FACE OF ERIS! SUCCEEDING IN WHAT SHE TRIED TO DO AT THE START OF THE MATCH! Eris is taken aback as Madison now rolls back in! She winds up and calls for Eris LeCava’s attention! THE AFTERLIFE BRUTALIZES ERIS, FOLDING HER IN HALF! MADISON HOOKS THE LEG, YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME, NOT THIS WAY!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEE!!!!!

Kawajai: BUT HOLD ON! Eris has a foot under the bottom rope, something the ref notices! That count is not official, the match is still going! Madison can’t even believe it, she is PISSED! If she was just a bit closer to the center of the ring she would be Vixens Champion right now! Madison gets up and is losing it! STOMP AFTER BRUTAL STOMP TO THE HEAD, TRYING TO SMASH ERIS’ SKULL IN! Madison looks for some momentum! Soccer kick to the jaw! Madison walks across the ring and gets on the apron, and drags herself up to the top rope with the rest of what she’s got! She could be going for a moonsault to end it here! If this connects we could have a new champion!

( Slipknot – “Surfacing” hits )

Kawajai: WAIT A MINUTE….

( Sheridan Muller runs through the curtain holding her Vixens Cup trophy with a referee alongside her )

Kawajai: WAIT A MINUTE!!!! NO WAY!!! NO WAY!!!

WWEFan: IT’S SHERIDAN MULLER!!! AND LOOK WHAT SHE’S GOT IN HER HANDS!!! IT’S THE VIXENS CUP TROPHY!!! DON’T TELL ME SHE’S GOING TO DO IT!!!!

( Madison stops on the top turnbuckle winded, exhausted, spent, yet in shock, and the two referees are talking at ringside…. Sheridan Muller hands her Vixens Cup trophy to the official as her music dies down. )

RA: Ladies and Gentlemen… SHERIDAN MULLER IS NOW CASHING IN HER VIXENS CUP TROPHY!!!!

Kawajai: IT’S HAPPENING!!! MADISON CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!! SHERIDAN GETS ONTO THE APRON AND MADISON DESCENDS FROM THE TOP ROPE, RACKED WITH PAIN, NOT EVEN SURE HOW TO RESPOND!!! SHERIDAN IS COMING TO GET REVENGE FOR MADISON’S ATTACK ON HER LAST WEEK ON DYNASTY, AND THIS IS GOING TO BE A JAGGED PILL TO SWALLOW FOR MADISON KALINE!!

( Sheridan is handed a microphone, and Sheridan starts laughing )

Sheridan: …. Just kidding, Maddie! (hehe)

Kawajai: WHAT!?

Madison Kaline (no mic): …

Sheridan: Relax Maddie it was just a prank, bro! (hehe) The camera’s over there!

( Sheridan points to the nearest camera, and Madison looks at it before her face turns red with anger. )

Sheridan: How do you Americans say? “April fools!”

Madison Kaline (no mic): IT’S NOT EVEN APRIL 1st YOU STUPID BITC–

WWEFan: ERIS TURNS MADISON AROUND!!! ON’NA!!!! MASSIVE BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!!! THAT BODYSLAM TURNS MADISON INSIDE OUT, AND ERIS HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Call Me” by Blondie plays as Eris LeCava rolls over and unable to even stand, offers her hand as the referee drops down and raises it from there before handing her the Vixens Championship.)

Ring Announcer: The winner of this match and STILL EAW Vixens Champion……..ERIIISSSSS LLEEEECAVAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Kawajai: WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED???

( Sheridan Muller is handed back her Vixens Cup trophy and is on the ramp, laughing at Madison’s misery )

WWEFan: Sheridan Muller has just added insult to injury by faking her Vixens Cup cash-in, and causing the cash-in at Madison Kaline’s expense! Madison has fallen victim to Sheridan’s “prank!”

Kawajai: Well if that’s not the sickest prank I’ve ever seen! MAN… it looked like Madison had this match won! All of the credit in the world to Eris LeCava for toughing it out and not just winning, but surviving that encounter. Most Vixens would have taken a stoppage much earlier on, the Vixens Champion has never had a fight like that!

WWEFan: Absolutely, but for Madison her efforts proved to be all for naught. Sheridan Muller exacted her revenge following Madison’s BRUTAL assault on her on Dynasty!

( Sheridan up the ramp laughing and admiring her own stunt, while Eris holds up her Vixens Championship and limps out of the ring. Madison Kaline is recovering on the canvas with her face tomato red with anger and embarrassment. )

( 10 MINUTE INTERMISSION )

(Video plays showing past logos of Grand Rampage before coming to the current version of Grand Rampage and showing the coliseum of which the war will be waged… the Notre Dame Stadium.)

Narrator: The Grand Rampage Match is a tradition that has been carried in EAW since its inception. A match contested with 30 men battling out for the prize that hangs in the balance! The only way to attain victory is to toss your opponent over the top rope and both feet hitting the floor! What prize are these men fight for, you ask? A world championship match, an opportunity to headline at the biggest stage possible for an EAW elitist to perform at, and to change the course of their career when they enter Pain for Pride!

(The video shows the first-ever winner, Masters, eliminating MvM to become the first winner of the Grand Rampage. It cuts to the first Pain for Pride, where Masters holds in the air the EAW World Championship, reveling in his historic conquest.)

(Fast forward to last year, where the first tie happened in the match, where Devan Dubian and Brian Daniels claimed victory. It goes even further with Devan Dubian cradling in his hands the Answers World Championship, taking it all in on that night.)

Narrator: Eight Grand Rampage matches have come and gone, 240 entries that have been made in the match. With only nine participants able to walk out with their hand held high in the match, many have failed to claim the title opportunity, as Hades the Hellraiser sent the most of those men in a single match out with crushed dreams with a record nine eliminations!

(The video shows the dark and brooding gaze of Hades the Hellraiser while it showcases the dominance that he did the match by eliminating the likes of Mr. DEDEDE, Tyler Parker, Lucian Black, and StarrStan.)

Narrator: We’ve seen the best of the best enter those ropes to tangle with one another to fight for that acclaimed prize, many Hall of Famers placing their own number in it, but only five of the respected Hall of Fame members have actually persevered to win it all! In fact, one of these Hall of Famers lasted the longest out of any other man, with Mr. DEDEDE taking the match to extraordinary lengths with a record of two hours and thirty-five minutes… while others have vanished in the blink of an eye like Striker Jensen!

(The video cuts to Mr. DEDEDE standing on the turnbuckle, taunting the crowd, before it turns to his exhausting performance in the Grand Rampage. Afterwards, it pans over to Striker Jensen being tossed over the top rope and on to the floor in three seconds.)

Narrator: The Grand Rampage is intense, emotional, unpredictable, and one of the wildest rides to witness in EAW! It’s one of the biggest event of the year, second-only to Pain for Pride, and it will only get bigger! With this year, EAW experiences something that it never has before with Grand Rampage!

(The video shows HRDO in the ring, making his earth-shattering announcement on Battleground, with a smile on his face and the crowd on their feet.)

Narrator: For the first-time ever, The Grand Rampage gets even bigger as 40 men will now enter the battleground of epic proportions where everything hangs in the balance! Every man will be gunning for the opportunity to claim the chance of a lifetime, with many already throwing their name into the match. Former world champions like Dark Demon and Jamie O’Hara, young aspiring newcomers like Phoenix Winterborn, and determined warriors like Lucian Black have all inserted themselves into the fray. With the odds stacked against them all even more with this recent announcement, every man will be fighting for the prize. No man will be safe, full-scale chaos will ensue, and only one man will walk out of the biggest Grand Rampage match with their road paved for the pinnacle of our industry: Pain for Pride.

(The camera transitions back into the Notre Dame Stadium, where thousands upon thousands of fans are on their feet, raising their signs, roaring in cheers… and the camera then later pans down to Stew-O, Kawajai, and Jake Mercer at the commentating table.)

Stew: Now we’re about to get underway with the match you’ve all been waiting for, the first forty-man Grand Rampage! This is big time! This one’s for all the marbles! NOBODY is safe and everyone is on the hot seat.

(The camera pans into a view of the Pain for Pride IX logo before transitioning into the ring where Michael Buffer wearing a suit and bow tie with a card in one hand and a microphone in the other hand)

Michael Buffer: Ladies and gentleman… The following match will be contested for an opportunity to compete for one of Elite Answers Wrestling’s three World Championships at the Pinnacle of Wrestling! For the first time ever, it will feature forty men and women vying for a chance to obtain the ultimate prize at The Showcase of the Elites! The Wrestling Extravaganza! The spectacle that separates men from boys… PAIN FOR PRIDE 9! And so without further ado… For the thousands sitting in attendance at the Notre Dame Stadium in Southbend, Indiana… For the millions watching at home… LLLETTTTTTTTTSSSSS GET READY TO RAMPAAAAAAAAAAGGGGEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

Michael Buffer: Introducing first, lucky number one…

Kawajai: I can’t wait to find out who it is!

(“Power” by Kanye West blares over the speakers as Scott Diamond slowly makes his way onto the ramp and down into the ring)

Michael Buffer: Making his way to the ring… From Long Island, New York! … Weighing in earlier today at 280 pounds, the first entrant in the 2016 Grand Rampage match… SCOOOOOOOOOTTTTTT DIAMONDDDDD!!!!!

Mercer: ANTI! ANTI! ANTI! SCOTT DIAMOND HAS RETURNED, HE IS OFFICIALLY BACK AND HE LOOKS BETTER THAN EVER! HE IS 6’5, 280 POUNDS OF TANK! I’D HATE TO BE THE MAN THAT THINKS HE’S GOING TO ELIMINATE SCOTT!

Kawajai: Scott looks to be in great physical condition, but you never know in the Grand Rampage who’s going to forge an alliance to take out the big dog.

Stew: Whatever the case, let’s find out who number two in this year’s Grand Rampage is!

(“Drink The Water” by Justin Cross plays as a green light envelops the ramp area and Jaywalker steps out with war paint on his face, entering the ring and staring down Scott Diamond)

Michael Buffer: Introducing the man that drew number two! Making his way to the ring… He is from Gaia! … Weighing in at 260 pounds… “The Calamity” JAYWALKERRRRRR!!!!!

Kawajai: Oh, boy! Business is about to pick up with Jaywalker entering at number two. This is a man that has accomplished virtually everything in EAW and still shows no signs of wear!

Stew: Who can forget Jaywalker’s unbeaten streak from 2012 to 2013? This is a man who has a monopoly on dominance and hopes to punch in his ticket for a Pain for Pride main event spot here tonight!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: These men come into Grand Rampage having walked very different paths! It’s almost as though Scott Diamond has something to prove here tonight, but this is another day at the office for Jaywalker, all business, something he’s been accustomed to since the moment he broke EAW’s door down almost a decade ago! AND SCOTT GOES RIGHT AFTER JAYWALKER, CONNECTING WITH UNANSWERED RIGHTS AND LEFTS TO THE FACE, KNEES TO THE GUT, AND UPPERCUTS! JAYWALKER REBOUNDS AND PUSHES SCOTT DIAMOND BACK, BUT HE’S NOW STAGGERING AGAINST THE ROPES! SCOTT DIAMOND QUICKLY REGAINS HIS COMPOSURE AND CHARGES AGAINST THE ROPES AT JAYWALKER FOR A CLOTHESLINE, HE’S GOING TO BE ELIMINATED, BUT NO! JAYWALKER PULLS THE BOTTOM ROPE DOWN AND SCOTT IS SENT OVER THE TOP! SCOTT DIAMOND HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

Kawajai: Not just yet! One of Scott’s feet fell to the floor, but he managed to hang to the bottom rope and pull himself up without letting the second foot touch the ground! Jaywalker is collecting himself in the middle of the ring and isn’t aware Scott wasn’t eliminated from the match. SCOTT GETS BACK IN THE RING AND QUICKLY RISES TO HIS FEET WITH A WAIST LOCK TO JAYWALKER! GERMAN SUPLEX! RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX ON JAYWALKER AND THE BACK OF HIS HEAD LANDS SMACK-DAB ON THE NEARBY TURNBUCKLE! SCOTT’S HAPPY WITH HIMSELF, BUT WHO’S GONNA BE NUMBER THREE??

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1…BUZZ!!!

(Y2Impact’s theme “Most Kingz” by Jay-Z ft. Chris Martin hits starting with the line “Most kings get their heads cut off” as he jolts down near the ring but doesn’t go into it)

Mercer: BAH GAWD! IT’S Y2IMPACT! THE SIX-TIME WORLD CHAMPION! THE QUINTESSENTIAL CHAMPION! THE MACHINE! NEWLY REFURBISHED AND FRESH OUT OF THE HARDWARE STORE!

Stew: But what’s this?! Impact isn’t going in the ring just yet! Y2Impact walked all the way over to the announcer’s table and Scott Diamond is signaling for him to come in the ring and bring it, but to no avail! Impact looks at Scott and shrugs, now he points behind Scott! IT’S JAYWALKER! JAYWALKER IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND AS SCOTT TURNS AROUND JAY HITS HIM WITH A VICIOUS SPINEBUSTER! YOU COULD HEAR THE THUD ACROSS THE ENTIRE ARENA, MEN THAT LARGE JUST AREN’T SUPPOSED TO GO DOWN BUT JAY HAS DRAWN SCOTT DIAMOND TO HIS KNEES!

Kawajai: And now Y2Impact is entering the ring! Scott Diamond is down, and we’ve got Y2Impact face to face with Jaywalker inside the ring for the first time in nearly two years! What’s this?! Y2IMPACT AND JAYWALKER SHAKE HANDS! A REUNION OF THE QUINTESSENTIAL TRAILBLAZERS, AT LEAST FOR NOW! NOW THEY’RE BOTH JAYWALKING ALL OVER SCOTT DIAMOND, CIRCLING HIM AND STOMPING ON HIS FINGERS, HANDS, AND KNEES BEFORE CONNECTING WITH SIMULTANEOUS HIGH KNEE DROPS! THEY JUST JAYWALKED ALL OVER SCOTT DIAMOND!

10…9…8….7….6…5…4…3…2…1…BUZZ!!!

(“Paris is Burning” by St. Vincent hits as the lights dim before brightening again and Kenny Drake jogs down to the ring)

Mercer: Kenny Drake, the hot young upstart from Voltage, is about to enter the Grand Rampage! They say number one is unlucky, but realize the task at hand here, he’s gotta go in that ring and stifle the incomparable Quintessential Trailblazers! Kenny Drake walks into the ring through the second rope and stares down Y2Impact and Jaywalker with absolutely no fear in his eyes! This man’s either brave or stupid, and Jaywalker and Impact charge at Drake against the ropes for the double clothesline! BUT DRAKE DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY AND HE’S BOTH Y2IMPACT AND JAYWALKER BY THEIR FEET! KENNY DRAKE IS ABOUT TO ELIMINATE BOTH Y2IMPACT AND JAYWALKER!!! HE’S GOT THEM CLINGING ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPES WITH THEIR LEGS SPRUNG UP IN THE AIR, BUT THEY BOTH FIGHT DRAKE OFF WITH KICKS TO THE FACE AND NOW THEY’RE BACK IN THE RING!

Stew: It’s unbelievable how close to eliminating two of EAW’s greatest all-time wrestlers Kenny Drake was, but now that golden opportunity has vanished in an instant! Now Y2Impact charges at a dazed Kenny Drake and connects with the running bulldog sending Drake face-first against the mat! NOW SCOTT DIAMOND IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND CATCHES JAYWALKER FOR THE BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! NO! JAYWALKER ELBOWS HIS WAY OUT OF IT AND SCOTT TURNS AROUND, RUNNING INTO Y2IMPACT! SCOTT’S NOT EVEN PHASED, HE CONNECTS WITH THE BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX ON Y2IMPACT WHOSE MOMENTUM MAKES HIM FALL INTO JAYWALKER AND NOW BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!

Kawajai: Scott Diamond has done excellent to regain his momentum in this match after being mercilessly jaywalked on by the one-time Quintessential Trailblazers, now he’s turning his attention the other way and setting his sights on Kenny Drake! Scott palms Kenny Drake’s head and draws him up to his feet using only a single hand like a bug! Herculean strength by Scott Diamond! AND NOW SCOTT WITH THE GORILLA PRESS ON KENNY DRAKE AND HE’S CARRYING HIM OVER TO THE OUTSIDE! KENNY DRAKE IS GOING TO BE ELIMINATED! SCOTT CONNECTS WITH THE GORILLA PRESS SLAM TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! KENNY DRAKE HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

Ring Announcer: Kenny Drake has been eliminated!

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3….2…1…

(“Fire It Up” by Thousand Foot Krutch plays as Nick Angel makes his way down the ramp and into the ring)

Mercer: It’s Nick Angel! Nick Angel! This is the man everybody has been waiting for! Really! They’ve been in my ear all night saying “damn, when’s that Nick Angel going to show up?” WELL HERE HE IS! IN THE FLESH, EVERYBODY!

Stew: AND NICK RIGHT AWAY STARTS POUNDING AT SCOTT DIAMOND WHO IS STILL UNPHASED! HE SWATS NICK ANGEL OUT OF HIS SIGHT LIKE A BUG, BUT NICK GETS RIGHT BACK UP AND SENDS A FLURRY OF RIGHTS AND LEFTS TO THE MIDSECTION OF SCOTT DIAMOND! WHAT’S THIS?! NICK WITH THE NUT CRACKER! NICK GOT ON HIS KNEES AND TOOK A SHOT AT THE NETHER REGIONS OF SCOTT DIAMOND AND IT PAID OFF, THE MAMMOTH HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN!

Kawajai: And we all know Nick is used to being on his knees! He’s fired up about giving Scott Diamond a taste of his own medicine, now Jaywalker is back up to his feet and it’s just he and Nick Angel with Y2Impact down in the corner of the ring! Nick charges at Jaywalker and connects with a quick enzuigiri, but Jaywalker doesn’t even flinch! Jaywalker coldly stares into the eyes of Nick Angel and Nick knows he should have erred on the side of caution, but he goes after Jaywalker with ANOTHER enzuigiri! JAY GRABS NICK’S LEG AND HOOKS IT INTO AN ANKLE LOCK! NOW HE’S TRANSITIONED IT INTO THE GRAPEVINE VARIETY OF THE MOVE AND NICK IS TAPPING OUT! NICK IS TAPPING OUT, BUT THERE ARE NO SUBMISSIONS IN THE GRAND RAMPAGE! THE ONLY WAY TO WIN IS TO THROW YOUR OPPONENT OVER THE ROPE. JAYWALKER REALIZES THIS AND NOW HE RELEASES THE OLD, FORCING NICK BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND GRABBING HIS NECK, TRYING TO ELIMINATE HIM NOW!

Mercer: BUT OUT COMES Y2IMPACT OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE EVISCERATION! EVISCERATION ON JAYWALKER! I GUESS THAT PUTS THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN FOR THE QUINTESSENTIAL TRAILBLAZERS’ ALLIANCE! AND NOW Y2IMPACT WITH THE LIONSAULT ON NICK ANGEL! THOSE TWO MOVES TOOK A LOT OUT OF IMPACT, NOW ALL OF THESE MEN ARE LAID OUT IN THE RING AND WE’RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT WHO ENTRANT NUMBER SIX IS!

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1

(“The Servant” (Instrumental) by Cells hits as Judas enters through the curtain, crouches down, and looks down toward the floor before running in the ring)

Kawajai: It’s Judas! Everybody’s been talking about this guy, he has a certain mystique about him! That said, his aura isn’t necessarily going to translate into a great Grand Rampage showing as this match has crushed the hopes of many men in the past! Judas sees everyone laid out in the ring and he’s thinking aerial! Judas runs against the ropes and springboards off of them to connect with a swanton on Scott Diamond! I guess that’s why they call him The Vision with Precision! But he’s not done yet, not by a long shot! He immediately goes after Y2Impact and connects with a flurry of elbow drops before he makes his way out of the ring and up to the rope! Judas is seeking to make an impression here at the expense of Y2Impact!

Mercer: Judas is stalking his prey and measuring Y2Impact, and now he launches himself! JAYWALKER CATCHES JUDAS IN MID-AIR! JAYWALKER CATCHES JUDAS AND NOW HE’S HELPLESS TO DEFEND HIMSELF! JAYWALKER TRANSITIONS IT INTO A MUSCLE BUSTER! MUSCLE BUSTER IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT RING AND JUDAS’ HOPES OF HEADLINING PAIN FOR PRIDE MAY HAVE BEEN DASHED RIGHT THERE BY JAYWALKER!

Stew: Now Jaywalker looks over to Y2Impact and stands him back up to his feet, he’s no doubt thinking about getting payback for that Evisceration earlier on! AND NOW HE’S GUIDING A DAZED IMPACT OVER TO THE ROPES AND TRYING TO ELIMINATE HIM! JAYWALKER IS TRYING TO THROW IMPACT OVER THE ROPES, BUT IMPACT’S WRAPPING HIS HANDS AND LEGS AROUND THE MIDDLE ROPE! HE’S NOT GOING DOWN QUIETLY AND WON’T BE ELIMINATED WITHOUT A FIGHT! JAYWALKER SPRINGS HIMSELF OFF THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK THAT SENDS Y2IMPACT FLYING THROUGH THE ROPES! BUT HE’S NOT ELIMINATED, HIS FEET HAVE TOUCHED THE OUTSIDE BUT HE WENT THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE! Y2IMPACT IS STILL IN THIS MATCH!

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1

(“Emperor’s New Clothes” by Panic! At The Disco hits as Aren Mstislav bolts down the ring and enters)

Mercer: LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN! AREN MSTISLAV, THE MAN MANY HAVE PICKED AS THE FAVORITE TO WIN THE GRAND RAMPAGE AND HEADLINE PAIN FOR PRIDE, HAS ENTERED THIS MATCH HE’S NOT WASTING ANY TIME GOING AFTER JAYWALKER, FIRING RIGHT AND LEFT PUNCHES AND SENDING JAYWALKER STAGGERING AGAINST THE ROPES! AREN MEASURES HIS OPPORTUNITY AND REARS BACK, GOING FOR THE ELEVATED DROPKICK AND HE CONNECTS! JAYWALKER GOES OVER THE ROPES AND HE’S GONE!

Kawajai: NO! JAYWALKER’S TEETERING ON THE RING APRON, BUT HE CLINGS ONTO THE ROPES AND HE’S STILL A PARTICIPANT IN THE GRAND RAMPAGE! AREN SEES THIS AND NOW HE SPRINGS HIMSELF OFF THE ROPES AND LUNGES FORWARD ATTEMPTING A SPEAR TO ELIMINATE JAYWALKER, BUT JAYWALKER WITH A KNEE! AN ABSOLUTELY VICIOUS KNEE TO THE SKULL OF AREN MSTISLAV AND HE MAY BE UNCONSCIOUS! JAYWALKER MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND AND MAY HAVE INCAPACITATED AREN MSTISLAV! AFTER THAT ONE, THE BOYS IN THE BACK ARE GONNA BE CALLING HIM AREN JAXON!

Stew: Oh, give the guy a break, Jaywalker is a legend and Aren is a prospective champion of the next generation! Who knows if he’ll learn from that?!

Mercer: AND NOW SCOTT DIAMOND FROM BEHIND JAYWALKER AGAIN! GERMAN SUPLEX! GERMAN SUPLEX! A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX AND JAYWALKER IS SENT ON HIS HEA– JAYWALKER LANDS ON HIS FEET AND SCOTT HAS NO IDEA! SCOTT’S NODDING AND GRINNING, BUT JAYWALKER LANDED UPRIGHT AND ON HIS FEET, AND NOW JAYWALKER WITH THE TRANSCENSION! THE TRANSCENSION CONNECTS ON SCOTT DIAMOND AND HE’S OUT COLD. YOU KNOW A TRAPPER BY HIS FURS AND YOU KNOW THIS MAN JAYWALKER BY HIS NEVER-SAY-DIE ATTITUDE!

Kawajai: BUT JUDAS WITH THE SPRINGBOARD HURRICANRANA ON JAYWALKER AND IT SEEMS JAY’S MOMENT IN THE SUN IS OVER! NO! JAYWALKER CATCHES JUDAS IN THE AIR AND HAS HIM HOISTED ON HIS SHOULDERS, RUNNING TOWARD THE OUTSIDE! POWERBOMB! POWERBOMB! JAYWALKER POWERBOMBS JUDAS OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND ONTO THE BARRICADE AND JUDAS HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

Stew: JUDAS ISN’T OFFICIALLY ELIMINATED! HE’S IN PAIN, BUT HIS LEGS WERE CAUGHT BETWEEN THE BARRICADE AND HE’S NARROWLY HOLDING HIMSELF TOGETHER!

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1…BUZZ!!!

(“Comatose” by Skillet plays and Kevin Hunter slowly walks down the aisle before entering the ring)

Stew: Meanwhile, Nick Angel is back up to his feet and now Jaywalker is charging at him! BUT NICK ATTEMPTS A BACKBODY DROP–NO! JAYWALKER WITH A FACEBREAKER! AND NOW KEVIN HUNTER RUNS IN THE RING WHEN HE SEES JAYWALKER TURNED HIS BACK AND SPRINTS RIGHT AFTER HIM ATTEMPTING A BLINDSIDED CLOTHESLINE! BUT IT HAS NO EFFECT, JAYWALKER TURNS AROUND AND GRABS KEVIN HUNTER BY THE THROAT AND THROWS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! KEVIN HUNTER HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

Ring Announcer: Kevin Hunter has been eliminated!

Mercer: He was in this match for all of about forty-five seconds, but he still didn’t manage to beat Mr. DEDEDE’s historic seven-second mark from the 2013 Rampage! Kevin ended up being on the wrong side of history tonight! BUT NOW HERE’S SCOTT TACKLING JAYWALKER IN THE BACK OF THE KNEE FROM BEHIND! SCOTT’S GOING AFTER THE BACK OF JAYWALKER’S KNEE, CONNECTING RELENTLESS FOREARM SMASHES! NICK ANGEL GROGGILY RISES BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT HERE’S Y2IMPACT RUNNING BACK INSIDE THE RING! Y2IMPACT CHARGES AT NICK ANGEL AND GRABS HIM BY THE TIGHTS, THROWING HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! NICK ANGEL HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

Ring Announcer: Nick Angel has been eliminated!

Kawajai: That means the entrants currently in the match are Y2Impact, Jaywalker, Scott Diamond, Aren Mstislav, and somehow Judas, who is still on that barricade! But what’s this?! JUDAS HAS MANAGED TO REGAIN HIS COMPOSURE AND BALANCE HIMSELF ATOP THE BARRICADE! JUDAS LEAPS AND SUCCESSFULLY LANDS ON THE STEEL STEPS AND NOW SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES! A SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE ON AN UNSUSPECTING SCOTT DIAMOND WHO FALLS DOWN TO ONE KNEE! AND NOW Y2IMPACT BOUNCES HIMSELF OFF THE ROPES! CURB STOMP! CURB STOMP ON SCOTT DIAMOND AND HIS FACE JUST TASTED THAT MAT! AND NOW JUDAS FROM BEHIND Y2IMPACT! HE’S ATTEMPTING THE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP, BUT IMPACT PREVENTS IT WITH AN ELBOW TO THE MIDSECTION AND NOW IMPACT SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES! NO! JUDAS KICKED THE ROPES WHILE IMPACT WAS ATTEMPTING A SPRINGBOARD AND FORCED IMPACT ON A CRASH-LANDING BETWEEN THE ROPES! IMPACT FALLS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GROUND AND HE’S STILL IN THIS MATCHUP!

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1…BUZZ!!

(“Something New” by Zendaya ft. Chris Brown hits as an excited, jumpy El Landerson makes his way down to the ring)

Mercer: IT’S EL LANDERSON! EL LANDERSON! HE’S GOING TO WIN AT GRAND RAMPAGE PPV! LANDERSON ENTERS THE RING WITH A WHOLE HEAD OF STEAM AND HE CHARGES AT JUDAS RIGHT OFF THE BAT! COULD LANDERSON HEADLINE PAIN FOR PRIDE?! LANDERSON GOES FOR THE KNEE FACEBREAKER, BUT JUDAS ISN’T HAVING ANY OF IT, HE THROWS LANDERSON BACK-FIRST ON THE MAT, SPRINGS OFF THE ROPE, AND HITS HIM WITH A SHINING WIZARD! SHINING WIZARD! JUDAS ISN’T FINISHED, HE STANDS LANDERSON BACK UP TO HIS FEET! TRAITOR’S KISS! THE NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX INTO A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP AND JUDAS HAS ABSOLUTELY CRUSHED LANDERSON HERE TONIGHT! THE ONLY THING LEFT TO DO IS ELIMINATE HIM AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT’S ON HIS MIND! JUDAS GRABS LANDERSON BY THE FEET AND SLINGSHOTS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! EL LANDERSON HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

Ring Announcer: El Landerson has been eliminated!

Stew: Man, it all started out great when Landerson was making his entrance, but it went from one-hundred to zero pretty quick and just like that, El Landerson’s dreams of competing in the main event of Pain for Pride have come to a crashing halt! No worries, though.

Kawajai: Now Judas is working on Jaywalker, connecting with several stomps to the chest and midsection! Judas stands Jaywalker back up to his feet, now peppering his chest with several authoritative knife-edge chops! He tries to whip Jaywalker off the ropes, but Jaywalker turns it around on him and whips Judas off the ropes! Back body drop from Jaywalker connects, but the athletic Judas lands on his feet and connects with the backstabber! Shades of Mickey Masterson! Jaywalker’s laid out once again, but now Judas springboards off the ropes and he attempts a moonsault on the downsized Jay! NO! JAYWALKER HAD THE KNEES UP AND NOW JUDAS IS FAVORING HIS RIBS!

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3….2…1…BUZZ!!!

(“King of the World” by Porcelain and the Tramps hits as the Heart Break Gal confidently walks toward the ring)

Mercer: IT’S THE HEART BREAK GAL! ONE OF THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME, THE FIRST VIXEN TO ENTER THE 2016 GRAND RAMPAGE, AND YOU CAN SEE SHE’S BEEN WORKING OUT PREPARING FOR THIS MATCH!

Stew: And Aren Mstislav was playing possum! Now he connects with the modified suplex from behind an unaware Judas! BUT HEART BREAK GAL ENTERS THE RING AND DROPKICKS AREN IN THE BACK! AREN LURCHES FORWARD AND DROPS TO TWO KNEES, NOW HIS HEAD IS CLUNG OVER THE MIDDLE ROPE! HEART BREAK GAL SPRINTS AND CONNECTS WITH A KNEE TO THE BACK OF AREN MSTISLAV’S HEAD! NOW SCOTT DIAMOND DRAWS HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET AND ATTEMPTS A RUNNING ELBOW ON THE HEART BREAK GAL, BUT SHE DODGES AND SCOTT RUNS INTO A RECUPERATING Y2IMPACT! NO! CROSSFACE! IMPACT TRAPPED SCOTT’S ARM AND HAS HIM IN THE CROSSFACE! AND NOW HEART BREAK GAL IS TAKING THE OTHER SIDE, LOCKING SCOTT IN THE HALF-LEGGED BOSTON CRAB WHILE IMP HAS HIM IN THE CROSSFACE! SCOTT WON’T TAP, BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER IN THE GRAND RAMPAGE. AT ANY RATE HE’S ABOUT TO LOSE CONSCIOUSNESS!

Masters: And out of the corner of their eyes comes Aren Mstislav pounding away at Y2Impact with repeated closed fists shots! To my knowledge you can’t be disqualified from the Grand Rampage in this manner, what a stroke of tactical genius by Mstislav! Heart Break Gal releases the half-legged crab on Scott and goes straight to downsizing Aren! She attempts a missile dropkick but nobody’s home, she falls flat on her back and now Mstislav and now Mstislav has brought Y2Impact all the way back up to his feet. MSTISLAV WITH THE CUTTER! NO! IMPACT TURNS OUT OF IT AND CONNECTS WITH A DEVASTATING EVISCERATION THAT SENDS AREN TUMBLING BACKWARD! AND NOW HEART BREAK GAL UP TO HER FEET! EVISCERATION ON AREN MSTISLAV! DUAL FINISHES BY THE MERCENARIES AND AREN MSTISLAV IS CURRENTLY OUT OF COMMISSION!

HERE IS YOUR NEW BREED CHAMPION MAXWELL DACHS! HE SPRINTS INTO THE RING WITH NO HESITATION AND HE’S IMMEDIATELY ON THE OFFENSIVE, CHARGING AT IMPACT AND HBG FOR A SHOULDER TACKLE BUT THEY DUCK AND NOW DACHS IS SENT SPRINGING OFF THE ROPES! DACHS CONNECTS WITH A FLYING FOREARM SMASH AND BOTH OF THE MERCENARIES ARE DOWN! BUT HERE’S JAYWALKER! HE TAKES DACHS FROM BEHIND AND HOISTS HIM UP FOR THE TORTURE RACK! DACHS IS AGONIZING IN PAIN BUT HE CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT, JAYWALKER IS JUST TOO STRONG!

Stew: And now he’s teetering over the top rope with Jaywalker trying to force Maxwell Dachs out of the ring, but he’s holding onto the ropes and refusing to quit! It would be almost embarrassing if Dachs were eliminated this quickly, but that’s the nature of the beast in this Grand Rampage match! BUT HERE COMES SCOTT DIAMOND WITH A SPEAR TO THE BACK OF JAYWALKER THAT SENDS DACHS OVER THE ROPES! ARE HIS FEET TOUCHING?! IS DACHS ELIMINATED?

Kawajai: Dachs is still in this matchup, his feet were hanging near the ground but he managed to hang on using the bottom rope to leverage himself back up and into the ring! And now Scott Diamond executes an inverted DDT on Jaywalker and awaits the number twelve entrant in the 2016 Grand Rampage!

Mercer: IT’S THE OUCAST KING FROM VOLTAGE! THE WINNER OF THE 2016 KING OF EXTREME, ECLIPSE DIEMOS! AND HE’S CLEANING HOUSE, CLOTHESLINING AREN MSTISLAV! CONNECTING THE ROOM 13 ON SCOTT DIAMOND! IMPACT AND THE HEART BREAK GAL ROLL UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND OUT OF THE RING! DACHS COMES AFTER ECLIPSE FROM BEHIND AND ATTEMPTS A BULLDOG BUT ECLIPSE REVERSES IT INTO A SIDEWALK SLAM! JAYWALKER FROM BEHIND WITH THE TRANSCENSION! JAYWALKER JUST STIFLED ALL OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS’ MOMENTUM IN A SECOND AFTER HE CAME INTO THIS MATCH WITH A WHOLE HEAD OF STEAM!

Kawajai: What the hell?! Y2Impact and the Heart Break Gal are hijacking the commentary booth! They’ve demanded headsets, what could this all be about?!

Y2Impact: ELEVEN OTHER MEN AND WOMEN HAVE ENTERED, AND NOT A SINGLE ONE COMPARES TO THE MACHINE! NOT A ONE! WITHOUT ME THIS MATCH IS AN OUTHOUSE, WITH ME IT’S THE PENTHOUSE!

Heart Break Gal: Um, excuse me?

Y2Impact: ONLY ONE COMPARES TO THE MACHINE! ONLY ONE!

Kawajai: We’re delighted to have the presence of Y2Impact and the Heart Break Gal on commentary, but look at the bedlam commencing inside that squared circle! Eclipse Diemos had nearly everyone taken out until Jaywalker hit him with The Transcension, now it’s just a pool of lifeless bodies!

Mercer: BUT WHAT’S THIS?! Y2IMPACT AND THE HEART BREAK GAL ARE FLANKING BOTH CORNERS OF THE RING! TYLER HAS TO HAVE EYES IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD BECAUSE I KNOW IMPACT WANTS REDEMPTION FOR PAIN FOR PRIDE 7! Y2IMPACT ENTERS THE RING AND HE AND TYLER PARKER ARE STARING EACH OTHER DOWN! THE FACE-OFF! IMPACT SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES BUT TYLER JUMPS OVER HIS HEAD AND NOW IMPACT ON THE REBOUND GOES AIRBORNE FOR THE FLYING FOREARM SMASH, BUT HE CATCHES NOTHING BUT MAT AS TYLER DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY! TYLER CATCHES IMPACT FROM BEHIND WITH THE ARMTRAP CROSSFACE! BUT HEART BREAK GAL’S ON THE TOP ROPE AND IT SEEMS TYLER HAS COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN ABOUT HER!

(“Long Forgotten Sons” by Rise Against hits as an energetic JJ Silva runs down to the ring)

Kawajai: IT’S JJ SILVA! JJ Silva has worked so hard through everything for the past year to get a spot in this match and he’s said repeatedly that he intends to make the most of it! And he enters a battlefield that has simply been reduced to rubble! JJ Silva immediately works on Maxwell Dachs and stomps him in the chest in the corner of the ring. Now he’s connecting rapid knees to the abdominal area of Maxwell Dachs and he’s just taking his sweet time out here basking in the limelight and taunting all of the competitors! This is ridiculous, he just entered this match and everyone in the match had already been ravaged by the war that’s transpired thus far!

Mercer: It doesn’t matter, Kawa! This is JJ Silva’s moment to shine and he’s not trying to waste this chance! JJ Silva stands a dazed Y2Impact back up to his feet, and he might not even know where he is right now after all of the punishment he’s endured throughout this match, this could all be over for him! JJ’s trying to fling Impact over the ropes but Impact is somehow still holding on! He clings to those ropes and executes a crafty thumb to the eye of JJ Silva to buy himself some time. A BULLDOG THAT SENDS JJ FACE-FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! AND NOW ECLIPSE DIEMOS FROM BEHIND Y2IMPACT WITH THE IMPALER DDT! IMPACT HAD NO IDEA!

(Loud footsteps are heard through a dark hallway, with a swinging light dangling from the ceiling… as an outline of a man begins to appear in the very dimmed light.)

“Some men… just want to watch the world burn.”

(The mysterious figure continues to walk slowly into the light, to where a flash glimpse of his face is revealed, and the multiple rooms, including the hallway begins to burn brightly with fire, as the man speaks loud and clear…)

“AND… HERE.. WE… GO!”

(The smoke consumes the image of the asylum hallway, the mysterious figure walking forward enough to where he’s past the camera’s view, and all that’s left is fire, smoke, and horrifying screams in the background — as the camera transitions to Jaywalker, the only man standing in the ring, looking very bewildered after watching the video package…)

Stew-O: I honestly… I’m so confused, this has been happening for two weeks straight over here on Dynasty, and nobody has seemed to piece the puzzle together, to figure out the identity of the man airing these cryptic messages…

Jake Mercer: I think we’re all confused on that, the fans, us, and even Jaywalker himself…

(“Blood On My Name” by The Wright Brothers plays loudly throughout the arena… as the fans turn their heads toward the stage in anticipating, and Jaywalker stares intensely at the stage as well.)

Kawajai: What?! Who… IS… IS THAT… I CAN’T BELIEVE MY EYES! IS THAT REALLY?

Stew-O: NO… NO… IT CAN’T BE! IT IS!

(… a man resembling a clown, with white, black, and red paint worn on his face, with a long leather purple trench coat walks onto the stage.)

Jake Mercer: IT’S THE EAW HALL OF FAMER KILLSWITCH! IT’S THAT CHAOTIC INSANE TWISTED HUMAN BEING WE ALL KNOW AS KILLSWITCH! WHAT IS HE DOING HERE?! HE’S ENTERED HIMSELF IN THE GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH?!

(Killswitch walks slowly down to the ring, with a giant grin on his face… Jaywalker watches his every move, not moving an inch within the ring, as Killswitch removes his purple trench coat, he enters the ring to step a few feet in front of Jaywalker.)

Stew-O: THIS IS TRULY ASTONISHING! WE’RE WITNESSING A MOMENT IN HISTORY THAT WILL BE REMEMBERED THROUGHOUT HISTORY FROM THIS NIGHT ON! BUT WHAT DOES KILLSWITCH WANT WITH JAYWALKER?! WHAT ARE THE MEANINGS BEHIND THOSE CRYPTIC MESSAGES AIRED ON DYNASTY…?

(… the music dies down, as Killswitch starts to clap his hands together for Jaywalker, and Jaywalker watches him unimpressed, as Killswitch laughs maniacally.)

Mercer: OH MY GOD! IT’S ACW LEGEND KILLSWITCH! HIS FACE IS PAINTED AND HE BEARS A RESEMBLANCE TO A CLOWN! HE’S CACKLING MANIACALLY AT JAYWALKER! ONE OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS OF OUR INDUSTRY AND ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED WRESTLERS OF ALL TIME! JAYWALKER IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND HE’S STARING DOWN KILLSWITCH!

Nico Borg enters the ring, taking a good glance around at JJ Silva cornering Cameron Ella Ava, and Judas exchanging blows with Demon! AND AREN COMES FLYING IN AT NICO BORG! AREN WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO NICO’S STOMACH! But Nico stops the knee, AND STARTS SWINGING HIS LEG FOR QUICK SNAP KICKS AT AREN’S FORELEG! Nico lets go of his knee, and SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES! SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK! NO! AREN DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE BOOT! BUT NICO LANDS ON HIS FEET! AND AREN LEAPS AT NICO FOR A CUTTER! A CUTTER! BUT NICO TOSSES HIM OFF! AND AREN WAS UNABLE TO EXECUTE!

Stew: AND NICO CAN’T NOT CATCH A BREAK WHATSOEVER! ECLIPSE DIEMOS FINDS HIMSELF BACK IN THE MIX AND SPRINTS AT NICO BORG, WHO’S BARELY GOT AWAY FROM THE ROPES HE ENTERED IN! BUT NICO BORG IS ABLE TO BACK BODY DROP ECLIPSE’S WEIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE!!! WHAT STRENGTH SHOWCASED BY NICO BORG HERE TONIGHT! BUT ECLIPSE DIEMOS HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES, AND LANDS ON THE APRON! Nico Borg spins around, and tries to pry Eclipse’s grip off the ropes! BUT ECLIPSE GRABS A HOLD OF NICO’S HEAD, AND IS TRYING TO PULL HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! AND ONTO THE APRON WITH HIM! BUT NICO BORG HOLDS ON TIGHTLY! ECLIPSE STRUGGLING, BUT KEEPS A FIRM GRIP AROUND HIS NECK NOW! PULLING HIM WITH ALL OF HIS DAMNED MIGHT NICO IS STARTING TO SLIDE…

Kawajai: LOOK AT THIS! THE HEART BREAK GAL SNEAKS UP BEHIND NICO BORG! AND LIFTS HIM UP AND TOSSES HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!!! NICO BORG IS GONE… NO! NO! NO! AT THE VERY LAST SECOND NICO BORG CATCHES HIMSELF BY GRABBING THE SECOND ROPE AND HOLDING ON! BUT DIEMOS IS THROWING SHOTS AT NICO ON THE APRON NOW! Eclipse is battling Borg on the apron, and The Heart Break Gal redirects her attention to the participants in the ring… AND TYLER PARKER REBOUND OFF THE ROPES AT THE HEART BREAK GAL! AND TYLER LEAPS HIGH INTO THE AIR ON THE WAY TO THE UNEXPECTING HEART BREAK GAL… BIONIC ELBOW! THE BIONIC ELBOW SMASHES ONTO THE TOP OF THE HEART BREAK GAL, AS WE’RE ABOUT TO GET ANOTHER ENTRY INTO THE GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH!!!

(“Nightmare” by Avenged Sevenfold hits as Erebos steps walks slowly onto the stage, wearing a dark red trench coat, and red and black themed ring attire, the fans giving him an in between reaction.)

Stew: It’s time for Erebos to get himself involved with this already chaotic match! Erebos takes off his trench coat, and slides into the ring… AND CARLOS TAKES ADVANTAGE OF IT! STOMPING AWAY AT EREBOS BEFORE HE CAN EVEN STAND! But Erebos pushes himself quickly up to his feet! AND CARLOS FIRES AWAY AT HIS RIB CAGE WITH HIS FISTS! But Erebos manages to push Carlos away from him, AND EREBOS PULLS CARLOS INTO HIM! DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE CONNECTS ONTO CARLOS ROSSO! AND CARLOS IS FLIPPED INSIDE OUT! Erebos takes his attention to Eclipse Diemos who’s luckily found himself back into the ring, after battling it out with Nico Borg on the apron— BUT JJ SILVA DROPS BEHIND EREBOS ON HIS KNEES! A LOW BLOW STRAIGHT TO EREBOS FAMILY JEWELS! WHAT A DIRTY TACTIC! JJ SILVA SURELY DOES NOT CARE FOR ANYONE, BUT HIMSELF IN THIS MATCH!!!

Mercer: OH NO! LOOK AT JAYWALKER IN THE CORNER WITH SCOTT DIAMOND! SCOTT’S TRYING TO FIGHT HIS WAY OUT OF THE CORNER, BUT JAY IS OVERPOWERING HIM WITH HEAVY BLOWS TO THE HEAD! AND JAY PULLS HIM OUT! AND FOLLOWS IN PURSUIT BEHIND HIM— THE TRANSCENSION TO THE BACK OF SCOTT DIAMOND’S HEAD! A DEVASTATING, AND VICIOUS NORTHERN LARIAT TO SCOTT DIAMOND! LITERALLY KNOCKING HIS LIGHTS OUT!!!… But Jaywalker doesn’t seem to be through with Scott Diamond quite just yet! He’s gripping him by his head, lifting him slowly onto his knees, then onto his feet! AND JAYWALKER… JAYWALKER IS SETTING UP FOR THE 2ND SACRIFICE! AND OH NO! JAY HAS HIM UP IN THE CRUCIFIX POSITION! HE’S SERIOUSLY THINKING OF ENDING SCOTT DIAMOND ONCE AND FOR ALL HERE! AND JAYWALKER TAKES OFF IN A SPRINT… OH MY GOD!!! OH MY GOD!!! CRUCIFIX POWERBOMB RIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE! AND ONTO THE ARENA FLOOR! SCOTT DIAMOND LANDS BACKWARDS ON HIS NECK! HE COULD BE INJURED! THAT IMPACT THAT DIAMOND JUST CAUGHT OFF THE GROUND! THAT’S SPINE CHILLING! HE COULD BE GONE BEFORE HIS RETURN EVEN GOT ANYWHERE! HE’S OUT OF THE GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH!

Ring Announcer: Scott Diamond has been eliminated!

Kawajai: SCOTT DIAMOND IS OUT! His dreams of main eventing Pain for Pride again has ENDED tonight! Jaywalker doesn’t even seem pleased with throwing Diamond out, he doesn’t act like he cares at all! And I’m sure he doesn’t, he’s Jaywalker after all… And now Aren Mstislav finds himself in a very sticky situation! He’s leaned against the ropes by JJ Silva here! JJ is pulling Aren’s leg over the top rope, but Aren is fighting for his life to keep himself in the match! Aren has to be tiring himself out though, as well JJ Silva! Both men have been fighting on in this match for a very long time! AND JJ SEEMS TO HAVE AREN— BUT WHAT IN THE WORLD?! THAT’S NICO BORG CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE… IS THIS ROOKIE MAD?! WHAT DOES HE THINK HE’LL ACCOMPLISH UP THERE?! NICO BORG LEAPS AND FLIES OFF THE TOP ROPE… DEAR LORD, DEAR LORD!!! I CAN’T EVEN… NICO BORG WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK! LANDING RIGHT INTO AREN AND JJ SILVA! AREN MANAGES TO FALL BACK INTO THE RING! AND JJ KNOCKED BACKWARDS INTO THE ROPES! Nico Borg in a hurry kips up to a vertical posture— BUT THERE’S DARK DEMON WITH A HANGMAN’S ELBOW TO NICO BORG!!! AND DEMON TOSSES NICO BORG OVER THE TOP ROPE, AND OUT OF THE RING! NICO’S GONE!

ENTERING HIMSELF UNKNOWINGLY TO EVERYONE IN THE GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH! WHAT ANOTHER AMAZING SURPRISE ENTRANT INTO THIS SPECTACULAR MATCH!

I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN HERE… HADES LIFT ECLIPSE HIGH INTO THE AIR! AND DROPS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT SPINE FIRST FOR A ONE HANDED CHOKESLAM!

Kawajai: Hades is on a, no pun intended… RAMPAGE! Nobody can seem to stops Hades! Until Hades finds himself staring down Jaywalker in the middle of the ring, BUT DARK DEMON IS THERE TO RUIN THE FUN! DARK DEMON ASSAULTS JAYWALKER WITH MULTIPLE CLOSED FISTS TO HIS CHEST! AND SEVERAL KNEES! But Hades comes towering over Demon from behind, and Demon turns around— AND STARTS GOING IN ON HADES! HADES IS ON THE ATTACK! BUT HADES FIGHTS BACK! HADES WITH OVERHAND LEFTS AND RIGHTS! Demon guarding his head with his forearms, but Hades is overwhelming with those MMA like strikes! And Hades backs Demon into the other monster in the ring; Jaywalker! And Demon spins on a dime, STRIKING AT JAYWALKER NOW! DEMON IS RELENTLESS! HE’S NOT BACKING DOWN FROM EITHER OF THESE BEHEMOTHS! BUT JAYWALKER GRABS DEMON BY THE NECK WITH BOTH HANDS! CHOKING JAYWALKER WITH A FIRM GRIP AROUND THE NECK! AND JAYWALKER LIFTS DEMON FAR UP… AND DROPS HIM BACK DOWN WITH A DOUBLE HANDED CHOKEBOMB!

Mercer: AND EREBOS TURNS HADES AROUND OUT OF NOWHERE! AND THERE’S A FIRM STIFF KICK TO THE ABDOMEN! AND EREBOS!!! EREBOS LIFTS HADES UP! WHAT BRUTE STRENGTH! AND DROPS HADES DOWN ON HIS SPINE FOR A BEAUTIFULLY EXECUTED SIT OUT SPINEBUSTER! HADES IS TAKEN OFF HIS FEET FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS MATCH! But there’s Eclipse once again, WITH A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE INTO EREBOS! BUT EREBOS DUCKS UNDERNEATH! Eclipse comes rebounding back at Erebos, BUT TYLER PARKER SPRINGS OFF THE ROPE FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! THE FINAL CHAPTER SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO A WAITING EREBOS CONNECTS! THAT BOOT SNAPS OFF THE TEMPLE OF EREBOS TAKING HIM DOWN! And Eclipse stops himself mid-run— ONLY TO HAVE A CHARGING AREN MSTISLAV TO COME OFF THE ROPES WITH A ROYAL JUDGEMENT TO ECLIPSE DIEMOS! The impact of that deadly uppercut forces Eclipse groggily back into the ropes!

(“Fancy” by Iggy Azalea hits, and Mark Michaels comes out holding up his iPhone 6S toward himself, taking a live video while he walks down to the ring.)

Mercer: And it’s the twenty sixth entrant himself, the social media champion; MARK MICHAELS! It was only about time until this Dynasty elitist would find himself in this match, he’s a determined one! Michaels slides into the ring, only to IMMEDIATELY RECEIVE A LOW DROPKICK TO THE KNEES FROM JUDAS! Michaels is unwillingly taken down to his knees, AND THERE’S MSTISLAV WITH A VENGEFUL UPBRINGING! A SUPER— NO! MICHAELS DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE ONCOMING SUPERKICK! AND ROLLS AWAY! But Judas redirects his focus onto Mistislav— BUT THERE’S CARLOS ROSSO RIGHT BEHIND JUDAS! JUDAS DOESN’T SEE CARLOS COMING FROM MILES, AND CARLOS DROPS JUDAS ON A WHIM WITH A NECK BREAKING DRAGON SUPLEX! WITH SUCH VICIOUS INTENT FOLLOWED THROUGH WITH THAT SUPLEX! Carlos FORCES himself back to his feet, and Aren takes off the ropes after Carlos! BUT CARLOS WITH A LETHAL RAINMAKER TO AREN! MY GOD! THIS MAN IS ON FIRE!

Kawajai: NOBODY CAN SEEM TO STOP CARLOS! AND THE HEART BREAK GAL… SHE WANTS TO TEST HER LUCK NOW! She steps forward, and Carlos seemingly cackles at her! Carlos give hers a “bring it on” gesture, AND SHE DOES! SHE DARTS AT CARLOS ROSSO WITH THE TRAMP STAMP TO THE JAW! BUT CARLOS CATCHES HER BOOT! CARLOS STOPPED IT! BUT SHE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A LEAPING ENZUIGIRI! AND CARLOS IS CAUGHT OFF GUARD WITH IT! Carlos steps away on woozily, and The Heart Break Gal SPIN KICKS CARLOS IN THE STOMACH! SHEESH! WHAT DOMINANCE THIS TALENTED YOUNG WOMAN IS SHOWING! AND HBG RACES OFF THE ROPE, COMING FULL CHARGE BACK AT CARLOS! OH… WOW! WOW! DEATH BY BANE! THE DEATH BY BANE CURB STOMP DRIES CARLOS NOSE FIRST INTO THE MAT! The Heart Break Gal is NOT messing around, she wants to win this match as much as any other guy…

Stew: BUT LOOK AT THIS! LOOK! ECLIPSE IS SO CLOSE TO BEING ELIMINATED RIGHT NOW! EREBOS HAS HIM SO CLOSE… YET SO FAR, HE JUST NEEDS TO GET THE OTHER LEG OVER THE TOP ROPE! EREBOS IS STRUGGLING DUE TO THE WEIGHT DIFFERENCE, BUT JUDAS FROM BEHIND WITH THE ASSISTANCE! BOTH MEN DOUBLE TEAMING ECLIPSE! ECLIPSE IS FIGHTING BACK! TRYING TO SHOVE THEM OFF— BUT IT’S TOO LATE! EREBOS AND JUDAS BOTH DUMP ECLIPSE DIEMOS OUT OF THE RING! ECLIPSE MAY HAVE WON KING OF ELITE, BUT HE’S NOT GETTING THE DOUBLE WHAMMY WITH GRAND RAMPAGE!

(“The Good Life” by Three Days Grace plays, and Rex McAllister sprints out from the curtains, wearing yellow and white attire, and wastes no time entering the ring.)

Mercer: One is gone from the match, and Rex finds himself in the match! He wasted no time getting down to the ring, and he’s now taking advantage of a resting Tyler Parker in the corner! Rex targets him fire of all, out of everyone! There’s a jab to the THROAT from Rex! AND A RIGHT TO THE HEAD! Tyler pushes Rex back lightly, BUT REX CORNERS TYLER! AND LIFTS HIM ONTO HIS SHOULDER!!! FALLAWAY SLAM!!! HE CONNECTS WITH THE FALLAWAY SLAM ON TYLER! This rookie with an impressive first go at this match, already taking down a Hall of Famer, and there’s Y2IMPACT! Impact HOOKS REX ARMS FROM BEHIND! I BELIEVE HE’S GOING TO TRY AND TIGER SUPLEX HIM… BUT IMPACT IS SETTING IT UP SO THAT THE FALLOUT ENDS UP WITH REX OUTSIDE THE RING! THAT’S DANGEROUS! THAT’S IMPACT SHOWING NO MERCY! But Rex is not ALLOWING IT! Rex throws his head back into Impact’s nose, and face! Trying to get Impact off of him, doing everything he can! And that he does, Impact releases Rex!

Kawajai: AND REX HOOKS IMPACT IN! THERE IT IS! HIS SIGNATURE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP CONNECTS! Rex is fending off Tyler, now Impact! This kid has guts, as he makes his way back to his feet, BUT NOW COMES FACE-TO-FACE WITH HADES! Rex backs away, BUT HE DASHES AT HADES! THROWING FISTS GALORE! BUT HADES SHOVES HIM AWAY LIKE HE’S A RAG DOLL! BUT REX BACK ON THE ATTACK, AND HADES ISN’T PHASE! HADES IS NOT PHASED WHATSOEVER! AND HADES WITH A KICK TO THE GUT! AND HE PULLS REX IN! OH HERE WE GO! HADES IS CALLING FOR IT! WE HAVEN’T SEEN THIS IN A WHILE! THE LAST CALL! HE LIFTS REX EIGHT FEET INTO THE AIR— AND DROPS HIM ON THE CANVAS FOR THE LAST CALL! HE GOT HIM! And Hades has no time to utilize this opportunity— BECAUSE JJ SILVA COMES AT HADES WITH A RUNNING ELBOW!

Stew: AND THERE’S CAM! CAM WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE BACK OF HADES LEG! THAT KICK BRINGING HADES DOWN TO A KNEE! AND JJ WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO HIS CHEST! AND CAM FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A CAM KICK TO THE HEAD! BUT HADES ISN’T GOING DOWN! HE’S DAZED, AND HE’S SWINGING AROUND… BUT THERE’S DARK DEMON! DARK DEMON FLIES OFF THE ROPES, AND COMES FULL FORCE AT HADES— MAFIA KICK! MAFIAAAAAAAA KICK! HE CAUGHT HIM! AND HADES IS DOWN! HADES IS DOWN! BUT NOW THEY’RE GOING TO DEAL WITH THE STRUGGLE OF GETTING HIM BACK UP! Hades laid out on his back, and all three look down at him pridefully— AND HADES SITS UP! HADES CHILLINGLY SITS UP! AS IF EVERYTHING THEY JUST DID WAS FOR NOTHING… AND HADES GETS UP! HADES IS UP! HE LOOKS TO ALL THREE, BUT JJ CHARGES AT HIM FIRST! DEMON AND CAM BAIL ON HIM!

(“It’s Our Time” by Rapheal Lake hits, and Phoenix Winterborn walks out into the Notre Dame Stadium, to an exciting pop from the fans.)

Kawajai: IT’S WINTERBORN! Winterborn is the twenty eighth entry into this chaotic match! He’s coming into this match fresh off the bat, and we’re already past the halfway point! Phoenix enters the ring, and he comes immediately to JJ Silva’s aid! PHOENIX WITH A KNEE TO HADES RIBS! AND ANOTHER UPLIFT KNEE TO HIS RIBS! AND JJ BACKS AWAY FROM HADES… AND A SPINNING BACKFIST FROM PHOENIX TO HADES! AND ANOTHER SPINNING BACKFIST! PHOENIX IS GOING CRAZY ON HADES! HE KNOWS HOW MUCH OF A MONSTER HE IS! AND THERE’S A SPINNING HEEL KICK! FOLLOWING UP WITH A SECOND SPINNING HEEL KICK! AND ONE MORE… THE FINAL SPINNING HEEL KICK TO EXECUTE THE PERFECT REIGN OF FIRE!!! That actually gets Hades to stagger back against the ropes!

Mercer: And NOW HADES IS BEING TRIPLE TEAMED! JUDAS IS ON THE ATTACK!!! JUDAS DARTS AT HADES, AND JJ DARTS AT HADES, AND SO DOES PHOENIX!!! BUT HADES DROPS DOWN, PULLING THE ROPES DOWN! AND ALL THREE MEN GO OVER THE TOP ROPE!!! BUT JUDAS CATCHES HIMSELF, AS DOES JJ! PHOENIX SEEMS TO HAVE SLIPPED, BUT CATCHES HIMSELF LAST SECOND! AND HADES IS UP, THROWING STRONG FISTS AT EACH OF THEM! AND EACH ARE HANGING ON! IT’S ONE MAN VERSUS THREE! AND THEY’RE TRYING TO FIGHT BACK! BUT HADES WITH A OVERHAND RIGHT TO PHOENIX! PHOENIX FALLS BACK, BUT HANGS ON… JUDAS WITH A KICK BETWEEN THE ROPES! AND JUDAS! JUDAS MAKES ENOUGH ROOM TO LEAP ON THE TOP ROPE, BUT JJ SWIPES HIS LEG! JJ SWIPES JUDAS LEG AS HE GOES TO SPRING OFF THE TOP ROPE, AND JUDAS LANDS GROIN FIRST ONTO THE TOP ROPE! JJ BETRAYING A TEMPORARY ALLY FOR AN ELIMINATION ATTEMPT!

Stew: JJ quickly shuffles back into the ring, while Hades is distracted! And Hades GRABS Judas by the throat! THIS ISN’T GOING TO BE GOOD FOR JUDAS! OH NO! HADES LIFTS JUDAS UP! JUDAS TRIES FIGHTING OUT— PHOENIX SHOULDER THRUSTS HADES ABDOMEN BETWEEN THE ROPES! AND DOES IT A SECOND TIME! THIS ENABLES JUDAS TO ESCAPE HIS GRASP! AND JUMP DOWN BEHIND HADES! AND PHOENIX PULLS HADES OVER THE ROPES!!! HE’S PULLING, AND JUDAS IS PUSHING!!! THEY’RE TRYING TO RID THE GRAND RAMPAGE OF THIS MONSTER! THEY HAVE HADES UPPER TORSO OVER THE TOP— HADES IS STILL HANGING ON! BUT JJ SILVA! JJ SILVA SHOVES JUDAS OUT OF THE WAY! AND FLIPS HADES OVER THE TOP ROPE ENTIRELY! AND HADES LANDS OUTSIDE ON THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! HADES IS GONE! BUT HADES GRABS PHOENIX WINTERBORN’S LEG ON THE WAY DOWN! TRIPS HIM UP! AND PULLS HIM DOWN ALONGSIDE WITH HIM!

And it seems to be that Tony Rolland, the once was Gendry of this match… has surfed his way all back to the front row! And he leaps onto the barricade, in a very Spider-Man esque stance, pretending to shoot off webs? This guy is nuts… and Tony is now balancing himself on the barricade, walking across it like a tightrope! This is just insane! AND TONY RUNS… I CAN’T WATCH! HE… HE LEAPS ONTO THE STEEL STEPS!

Ring Announcer: Lucian Black has been eliminated!

Stew: Y2IMPACT HAS DONE IT! Y2IMPACT HAS WON THE NINTH ANNUAL FIRST EVER FORTY MAN GRAND RAMPAGE MATCH! MY GOD!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Most Kingz (no intro)” by Jay-Z ft. Chris Martin plays loudly throughout the Notre Dame Stadium, as Y2Impact drops to his knees on the apron in disbelief…)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner of the ninth annual, forty man Grand Rampage match… YYYYYYYYYYY222222222222222IIIIIIMPAAAAAAAACTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!

Mercer: IMPACT DID IT! IMPACT WON IT ALL! HE ENTERED AT NUMBER THREE, OUTLASTED LITERALLY THIRTY NINE OTHER MEN IN THIS MATCH! AND HAS WON THE GRAND RAMPAGE! HE DID EVERYTHING HE COULD TO STAY ALIVE! HE DID EVERYTHING HE COULD TO KEEP HIMSELF IN THIS MATCH! AND HE SUCCEEDED! THIRTY NINE OTHER MEN WALK AWAY DISAPPOINTED, BUT THIS ONE MAN GETS TO SOAK IN THIS VICTORY, AND MARK THIS DATE IN HISTORY AS THE GRAND RAMPAGE HE WON!

(Y2Impact reenters the ring, the crowd pouring the arena with loud boo’s…. Y2Impact just smirks, and has his hand raised by the referee, as gold, red, and white confetti drop from the ceiling.)

Kawajai: I must admit, THAT WAS ONE HELL OF A MATCH! It had me on the edge of my seat the ENTIRE time! And I was not expecting Y2Impact of all people to take this victory home, not when there were fan favorites like Aren Mstislav, Lucian Black, or even when you had guys like Carlos and Demon performing at their peak tonight! This is an outstanding win in his book, and Y2Impact goes onto Pain for Pride 9 to compete for whatever World Championship he desires! We may very well be seeing the future seven reigns in motion!

Stew: You can’t take anything away from ANY competitor that competed out here tonight… THEY ALL GAVE IT THEIR ALL! And they go home empty handed, but none of them should be disheartened by this loss! They all performed fantastically, and I expect greater things to come!

(Y2Impact proceeds to celebrate in the confetti filled ring, then climbs his way up to the second rope… taking his time to soak in the reaction, and looks up to the Pain for Pride 9 sign — then points at it, as pyrotechnics explode all throughout the Notre Dame Stadium.)

Kawajai: After months, and months, taking loss after loss… after losing everything Hexa-gun worked so hard for, Y2Impact brings home the bacon! He proves it wasn’t all for nothing, and he surely will never let this image be forgotten if we know him as well as we think we do. We will NEVER hear the end of this…

(… the pyrotechnics continue to explode around the arena, and the confetti continues to fall as The Heart Break Gal joins Y2Impact in celebrating his victory in the ring, the camera focuses on them hugging, and giving each other a passionate kiss… before fading to black.)
