(The crowd for KOE is filling up the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark with “Kings” by Tribe Society plays in the background)
Narrator: Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the King Of Elite Pre-Show.
(Camera pans to a table set overlooking the ring and stage for this year’s KOE. At the table are Rex McIntyre, Sabina, Hey Yo Chico, Deadprez.)
Rex: Hello there, I’m Rex McIntyre and welcome to the return of the EAW Pre-Show Panel. And what a night we have in store for you, including the finals of the prestigious KOE tournament where we will definitely see a new ruler of EAW. Let’s introduce the roundtable here, first is my long time commentary partner and former EAW Elitist, Hey Yo Chico!
HYC: Hey Yo! And what a night we do have including a blockbuster main event. The tournament that can change any of those three men’s lives and give them a guaranteed title shot is ending tonight!
Rex: Definitely, also along for the show former 3x Vixens Champ, Sabina!
Sabina: Thank you and don’t forget as well that I’m an EAW Hall of Famer. The Original Female Hall Of Famer and Chico don’t forget about the ladies, Empire may have only two matches to represent the show but the four women involved in them have all the talent to steal the show!
Rex: And finally, last but certainly not least, AWF Legend, Deadprez.
Deadprez: Chico and Sabina have their points but don’t forget the four major world title matches, all four of them have major impacts on the future of EAW and the respective brands.
Rex: You are all correct and speaking about a world title match, how about we start our discussion with the World Heavyweight Title match between “The Punisher” Jacob Senn and “The Golden Boy” Heart Break Boy.
(Match pic for HBB vs Senn for the World Title appears on screen)
Rex: How can this match be more hyped up? HBB has been nothing short of great since returning at HOG.
HYC: Don’t forget Senn’s dominance over Dynasty, his reign has gotten all the momentum from retaining at Road To Redemption, let’s take a look at all the competition he defeated at RTR. Lucian Black, Methuselah, Scott Oasis, Jamie O’Hara and the man he faces tonight, HBB.
Sabina: Yes BUT remember that he defeated them all inside that demonic, Elimination Chamber with the added rule of it being an Extreme Chamber match. Senn is going up against HBB in a 1v1 match, no added rules that we know of right now. Senn’s title victory was also inside an Extreme type of match, which was inside of the Glass Walls, you could make the argument that Senn is taking advantage of his environment.
Deadprez: OF COURSE HE IS! The rules of the matches made it that Jacob Senn was allowed to use weapons to his advantage, The World Champ of Dynasty is going up against a man whose body is probably at its limit since he’s been competing for so long. I say Senn is retaining and convincingly as well!
Rex: Well I guess, we’ve got Prez’s vote. Sabina, what about you?
Sabina: HBB, the Golden Boy finds that second wind in his legendary career.
HYC: I say Senn, no offense to HBB here but this is Jacob Senn, one of the men that help end the reign of Zack Crash as Chairman and the reason that most of us still have a job in EAW.
Rex: Speaking of Zack Crash, let’s now move on to the HOF Title match between “Damaged” Zack Crash and Devan Dubian. Two Hall Of Famers from last year’s class, both of them are former world champs but personality wise, the complete opposite. Sabina, we’ll start with you for this match, any thoughts?
Sabina: Of course, I don’t like Crash, doesn’t matter if he’s damaged or not, but you can’t underestimate this new side of him. Even with him in this whatever it is, he’s still Zack Crash, a talented in-ring competitor but he’s going up against Devan Dubian, some equally talented in the ring and just as dangerous in my opinion, it’s going to really come down to who can take control early on.
Rex: Thank you, Sabina and Chico what about you?
HYC: Erased! Erased! ERASED!!!
(Sighs from Rex, Sabina, Deadprez are heard.)
Deadprez: Someone please knock him out, well let’s just talk about Zack Crash for a minute. The man is a two time World Champ and in many, including myself’s that he could be in the running for the Greatest Of All Time here in EAW. Yes, that term is used by everyone here but you can’t disagree that’s he’s been a part of some great moments in EAW, ranging from his cash-in PFP, from his creation of Elite over Extreme. Doesn’t matter if he’s Damaged or not, this man is still ZACK CRASH! My pick is Crash for this one.
Rex: Considering Chico is saying “Erased”, I’m guessing you’re with Crash as well. Sabina, your pick?
Sabina: Devan. I’ve got to support the man that made his career in this very same event 2 years ago and showed that he was Main Event quality talent.
Rex: With that, I believe it will be a great time to take a commercial break, we’ll be right back with more of the Pre-Show Panel.
(Commercial break featuring Lannister, [REDACTED] and VisitGermany.Com!)
(ANOTHER Commercial break featuring “Welcome Home” by Heaven’s Basement to hype up Reasonable Doubt LIVE from the spiritual home of EAW, Madison Square Garden! Get your tickets NOW!)
(Camera returns to the panel getting their notes in check)
Rex: Ladies and Gentlemen welcome back and as you saw, EAW returns home to MSG for what is considered one of the most dangerous nights of the calendar, Reasonable Doubt returns! And since we’re on the topic of Showdown, let’s talk about the National Elite Championship match, The Maltese Falcon vs. The Gentlemen. Do you think we’ll get to see a new champ in Mortimer Gotch or will Nico Borg retain?
Deadprez: EASY! Borg retains his title, I can easily say that Nico retains and continues his great run as National Elite Champion. It’s not to say that Gotch is bad talent but you have to go with experience with this one. Borg has been in big time matches since arriving in EAW, let’s list them down. Grand Rampage, 24/7 Battle Royale, National Elite title match against Pizza Boy, War Games, first blood match against Tyler Parker, Extreme Elimination Chamber. This is a game of big matches experience and the obvious choice is Nico Borg.
Sabina: Unfortunately, I have to agree with Deadprez on this one and say that experience counts, it’s not to say that Gotch won’t put up a great fight. This match may be a sleeper for the fans tonight.
HYC: Borg is taking a clean sweep from us, my vote also goes to Borg, he’s been one of the best rising stars we’ve gotten from last year.
Rex: Well let’s switch it up from the Flagship show to the show rising in popularity, Thursday Night Empire and the bloodiest we’ll have to see in EAW to date with the first ever Blood Bucket Match between Haruna Sakazaki and Brody Sparks. Will The Pride Of The Women’s Division be able to gain the Specialist Title for the second time or The Spark hold on to her precious? For someone who doesn’t know the rules of this match, you need to beat up your opposition so badly and mercilessly that they get busted open to fill up two buckets worth of blood.
Sabina: Firstly, has someone check Brody’s mind out. Whenever I see her backstage, the thoughts about getting cut open by her run in my mind. To come up with something like this for a match, it can only come from her mind.
HYC: Yes but she’s going up against someone who his all heart when thrown into matches like this, Haruna has been busting her ass off for this match, people can say all they want that Azumi Goto helped her get the title match but she would have earned one sooner or later for either the Specialist title or Women’s World Title. I guess it’s sooner rather than later, let’s not just think about her work in the ring, remember that she was a part of the Vixens revival alongside Maddison, Tarah, and few others.
Deadprez: Yes BUT Haruna is a complete and utter choke artist. HYC, she’s only one major match win and it was at a Supershow. You have to remember that people like her are just simply forgotten in time and competitors like Brody are remember because she’s pretty much accomplished more things in a year then Haruna has done in two.
Sabina: Of course, but for her 2016 might be a dark cave and 2017 is the end that dark place, I believe that now is the moment for her to rise to the occasion and become the first 2x Specialist Champion.
Deadprez: Well I still believe she’s going to choke again when given this spotlight, I’m willing to put money on the line. Brody Sparks retain!
HYC: Well my money is Haruna, she finally breaks from the shackles of losing and gains back the title that was once hers.
Rex: Keeping the trend of Hardcore and violent matches, let’s go to Maero vs McAdams II. Two rising stars of Voltage, one man getting the biggest win of his career after paying his dues for an entire year in Maero or the man that used the Hardcore Title’s old 24/7 rules to his reign, John McAdams?
Deadprez: Well that depends on who’s skillset works for the Hardcore Title, and I have to stick with the Sanatorium members for this and give it to Maero. It’s just that when it comes down to basic abilities that suit this match, Maero is the obvious pick.
HYC: Like Prez said, I have to go with Maero. He just won his title a couple of weeks ago and I don’t think he’s letting it get taken away by Jon McAdams.
Sabina: My pick is also on Maero, the man worked hard for a year to get a title win. I can’t see him being beaten right now.
Rex: Well another sweep in the title picture wise. We’ll be right back later on after the pre-show matches, to talk about the last half of the card!
(Commercial break about PFPX tickets for the HOF, Axxess and the main show itself.)
(The camera transitions into the arena, where the Ring Announcer is standing in the center of the ring)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the EAW Tag Team Championships!
(‘I Get Money’ by 50 Cent blasts throughout the stadium as The High Rollerz step out onto the stage wearing tights with King playing card designs plastered all over them. They mock bowing to each other a couple of times before finally making their way down to the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first…Both from Las Vegas, Nevada…Weighing in at a combined 412 pounds…the team of Jack Ripley and David Davidson…They Are THE HIIIIIIIIGGGGHHH ROOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEERRRRRZZZZZZ!!!
Cherish: God…What even are those tights?
Pierre: What are you talking about? They’re fabulous!
Cherish: I think we are going to have to agree to disagree, Pierre. I mean, they sure are a fashion statement, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen more garish tights in my life.
Pierre: Nonsense! You just don’t get the subtle message in them. This is King of Elite. These two are looking to become KINGS right here tonight.They’ve been on something of a hot streak as a team since their return to EAW, and now they are looking to draw a royal flush and cash in on the biggest win of their career by becoming tag team champions.
(‘Gold Digger’ by Kanye West begins to play as as Matt Squared step out from behind the curtain to a raucous crowd reaction. They tap the plates of their tag team championships together, then proudly raise them in the air as they descend down the ramp.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing their opponents…Weighing in at a combined 443 pounds…the team of Matt Miles and Matt Ryder…They are your EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…MATT SQUUUUUUAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRREEEEDDD!!!
Cherish: See that’s what a pair of tag team champions really looks like. A couple of cool yet classy guys who don’t need ugly tights nor bad gambling puns to stick out. Are you really that confident they can be beat?
Pierre: Listen Cherish, Matt Squared make fantastic champs. They earned those belts by outlasting any and all who even had pretentions of being in the tag team division when they won the Grand Prix. All I’m saying is that The High Rollerz have been in the tag team game a long time. They are a well oiled machine and together can cause just about anyone problems. Either way I’m sure we’re in for a great contest.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Cherish: That’s the bell and it looks like we’re kicking off with Matt Ryder and Jack Ripley in between the ropes. Both men immediately lock up in the center of the ring, no time wasted there as each man hurries to find an advantageous position in the grapple. A brief tussle ends with Ryder outmaneuvering and ultimately overpowering Ripley. Armdrag! Ryder looks straight to locking the arm but Ripley fights it every step of the way. He powers back to his feet. Ripley with his head down and just ramming Ryder with all his strength, right into the High Rollerz’ corner.
Pierre: Tag made. Ripley lingers for a few moments, holding Ryder against the turnbuckle as his team mate steps through the ropes. DAVIDSON CLUBS RYDER WITH A HUGE ELBOW STRIKE! Ryder’s head whipped back painfully by that blow. But Davidson isn’t about to relent. He fires off, unleashing elbow after elbow to the cranium as Ryder recoils helplessly in the corner. The referee finally intervenes and Davidson backs off a few steps…JUST FAR ENOUGH AWAY FOR A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE! Davidson hurtled in with such an impact that Ryder himself is sent bouncing out of the corner. Davidson follows closely behind, grabbing the head FOR A BULLDOG!
Cherish: BUT RYDER COUNTERS! Ryder spins out behind him and deftly applies the half nelson. HE LIFTS DAVIDSON UP FOR THE ONE NIGHT STAND!!! THIS COULD END IT…BUT NO! DAVIDSON REVERSES IT INTO A VICTORY ROLL. HE’S GOT THE SHOULDERS DOWN!
Pierre: Kickout by Ryder and both men scramble back to their feet. Shoulder Block. Davidson a step ahead of time as he levels Ryder back down to the canvas. He sprints off towards the far end of the ring, hitting the ropes and rebounding-RIGHT INTO A HIP TOSS! COUNTER HIP TOSS BACKBREAKER BY RYDER AND HE MAKES THE COVER.
Referee: OONNEEE!… TWWWOOO!…
Cherish: Davidson EXPLODES upright to beat the three count. He’s just sat bolt upright AND RYDER NAILS HIM BACK DOWN WITH THE DROPKICK! David Davidson laid flat out on the canvas once again, much to the chagrin of Ripley who’s hollering hysterically in the corner. Ryder looks over at Jack then shakes his head with a smirk. He’s exuding confidence but he doesn’t look for another premature pin on this occasion. Instead dragging a limp legged Davidson back to his feet. And Matt Ryder reaches down for the pumphandle. PUMPHANDLE NECKBREAKER CONNECTS! AND THAT COULD HAVE DONE SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE! DAVIDSON ISN’T MOVING AS RYDER HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: OONNEEE!… TWWWOOO!…
Pierre: Jack Ripley barrels in, just about breaking up the pin in time. Miles, taking exception, steps into the ring to confront him but the official quickly intervenes, sending the illegal Matt back to his corner before having a word with RIpley. Jack, for his part, raises his hands as if to say “ok, I’m going” but he’s dragging his feet. The official steps in to assert himself, but as he’s delivering the warning there is movement stirring behin-LOWBLOW! THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT. HE WAS TOO DISTRACTED DEALING WITH RIPLEY TO CATCH DAVIDSON STRIKE RYDER BELOW THE BELT. MILES IS GOING BALLISTIC ON THE APRON BUT IT IS NO USE! THE REFEREE TURNS TO SEE DAVIDSON FORCING RYDER’S HEAD BETWEEN HIS LEGS. HE’S GOING FOR THE CHALK OUTLINE DRIVER!!!
Cherish: BUT RYDER BLOCKS IT! Matt Ryder keeps his feet firmly planted on the canvas as he pulls it up into a back body drop. But wait? WHAT?!?! DAVIDSON LANDS CLEAN ON HIS FEET! Ryder turns to face him AND EATS A WELL TIMED SUPERKICK! THE SHEER POWER OF THAT KICK SENDS RYDER SPINNING ROUND, STUMBLING BACK TO THE CENTRE OF THE RING! And here comes Davidson…REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER!!! RYDER DROPPED HEADFIRST ONTO MAT. DAVIDSON CRAWLS OVER TO DRAPE AN ARM OVER HIM!
Referee: OONNEEE!… TWWWOOO!…
Pierre: Another chance to end things but Ryder shows his resilience, popping his shoulder up with no need for assistance. Davidson is pulling his hair in frustration! It’s been a punishing back and forth between these two and now both men are still down and looking in need of the tag. They’re crawling, hauling themselves in opposite directions towards their own respective corners. Ripley has his arm outstretched, he’s shouting desperately for Davidson to hurry up. Miles in the opposite corner drums the steel steps with his boot, just trying to rally Ryder on. Which man will make the tag first? They are both getting there…TAGS MADE! SIMULTANEOUS TAGS AND MILES AND RIPLEY BURST OUT OF THEIR CORNERS TOWARDS EACH OTHER! RUNNING BACK ELBOW! BUT RIPLEY EVADES IT AND KEEPS RUNNIN-SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK!!! JACK RIPLEY DROPKICKS MATT RYDER RIGHT OFF THE APRON AND SENDS HIM TUMBLING INTO THE BARRIER ON THE OUTSIDE!
Cherish: Here comes the other, angrier Matt now. Charging in for the uppercut. BUT RIPLEY LIFTS HIMSELF IN THE CORNER AND RAISES THE KNEES TO BLOCK IT! MILES IS DAZED. RIPLEY ON THE SECOND ROPE AND WITH BAD INTENTIONS IN HIS EYES…TORNADO DDT! MATT MILES’ SKULL SLAMMED INTO THE CANVAS AND THE MOMENTUM SENDS HIM HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING! IT’S LOOKING BLEAK FOR THE DEFENDING CHAMPIONS!
Pierre: Give him his due. Miles is still fighting back to his feet. But there’s a glazed look in his eye, I don’t think he’s quite shaken off the cobwebs as he teeters, just unable to fully find his balance. Ripley turns to Davidson and they both let out a hearty laugh. Tag is made. THE HIGH ROLLERZ RUSHING UP BEHIND MILES WITH A TANDEM CLOTHESLINE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD LAYS HIM OUT PRONE! But they aren’t done yet. The challengers line themselves up…DAVIDSON HITS THE ROPES, REBOUNDING BACK TO TEE OFF A BRUTAL HEAD KICK AT HIGH VELOCITY! MILES IS SEEING STARS. BUT HERE COMES RIPLEY WITH WITH ANOTHER SICKENING PUNT!
Cherish: God, where’s Ryder? This is turning into a demolition job. Ripley continues up to the top rope. Meanwhile, Davidson hoists a dubiously conscious Matt Miles to his feet. This isn’t how it ends, is it? WAIT! RYDER IS STIRRING ON THE OUTSIDE! HE’S JUST NOTICING WHAT’S GOING ON, BUT IT’S TOO LATE! JACKPOT!!! THE FALLING NECKBREAKER AND DIVING CROSSBODY COMBO! RIPLEY BLOCKS RYDER OFF AT THE ROPES AS DAVIDSON MAKES THE COVER!
Referee: OONNEEE!… TWWWOOO!… THHRRREEEEEEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“I Get Money” by 50 Cent hits as the jubilant High Rollerz rush to collect the Tag Team Championships and make their way up the ramp)
Ring Announcer: Here are your winners… AND NEW EAW TAG TEAM CHAAAAAAMPIIOOOOONSSS! THE HIIIIGGGHHH ROOOOOOOOOLLLLLLEEEEEEERRRRRZZZZ!!!
Pierre: WHAT DID I SAY?!? THEY DID IT! KINGS! OF HEARTS! OF MY HEART!
Cherish: OK Pierre, now tone down the creep.
Pierre: ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED!?!? WE HAVE NEW EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! The High Rollerz come out with all the chips tonight, and look, Ryder’s calling for a mic, he about to tell you again what just went down.
(Matt Ryder collects a mic from an official and steps towards Matt Miles, holding the mic between them.)
Matt Miles: I’m sorry, Bro.
Matt Ryder: You’re… sorry?
Matt Miles: Yeah they got lucky, that’s all. We’ll get our rematch and we’ll win it back, Bro, we’ll win it back.
Matt Ryder: I’M NOT YOUR BRO, FAM!
Matt Miles: What? What do you mean?!?
Matt Ryder: I WORKED SO GODDAMN HARD TO GET HERE, TO GET MY HANDS ON THE CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE FIRST PLACE! I BUSTED MY ASS OFF OUT THERE AND CARRIED THE TORCH FOR THE GREATER PART OF THE MATCH. AND YOU KNOW? I REALLY DIDN’T MIND, BUT THEN WHEN I NEEDED YOU TO STEP UP, I EXPECTED YOU TO AT LEAST TRY. AFTER ALL, YOU’RE ‘MIDAS TOUCH’ MATT! YOUR TOUCH TURNS THINGS GOLD. SURELY YOU COULD HOLD ONTO THAT GOLD FOR TWO MINUTES. BUT YOU LET ME DOWN.
Matt Miles: Bro…
Matt Ryder: DON’T ‘BRO’ ME!!! I SEE WHAT YOU ARE NOW! YOU’RE A LIABILITY! YOU HAD TO HANG ON TO MY COATTAILS TO GET A TASTE OF GOLD AND NOW YOU’VE BLOWN IT! NEVER. AGAIN!
Cherish: RYDER JUST KICKED MILES IN THE GUT! WHAT’S GOING ON!?!? WHAT IS HE DOING!?!? LONG ISLAND LIFETIME!!! LONG ISLAND LIFETIME!!! MATT RYDER JUST SPIKED MATT MILES HEAD FIRST INTO THE CANVAS WITH THAT SWINGING REVERSE STO!!!
Pierre: MATT RYDER’S GONE CRAZY! Something tells me Matt Squared will not be cashing in their rematch clause…
(Matt Ryder storms off backstage, leaving Matt Miles unconscious in the ring.)
(Reasonable Doubt Commercial)
(Back from Commercial break as the match pic for Nasir Moore vs Carson Ramsay is on screen)
Rex: Two of Voltage’s top young stars go at it, Carson Ramsay that got a seal of approval from StarrStan at PFP after a Match Of The Year candidate. On the other hand, Nasir has the fans’ approval as the next top EAW star but really who do you guys think is the real future of Voltage and EAW in general?
Deadprez: It has to be Carson Ramsay, remember this man has one thing Nasir doesn’t. A proper title reign as EAW Pure Champion. The man was a fighting champ for his entire reign and you can definitely put his title reign at the top of the list in EAW for that title. If a legend like Starr, believes in him then you have to believe that this man is the future of Voltage and even EAW.
Sabina: But don’t count out Nasir Moore, this man almost won the EAW Title on multiple occasions and we’ve all said this in the past that this man as all the tools, all the gifts to be EAW Champ. My pick is Nasir for this one.
HYC: Carson’s got this… there’s something about being picked by a Hall Of Famer to be the future of this company and you have to realize that. In the end, not a lot of the fan favorites understand the ins and outs of this business as well as some like Starr knows. It’s easier to see why StarrStan picked when if Nasir has those tools but Carson is just the same but maybe Ramsay might be a little more dangerous now.
Rex: Now would be the best time to move to the last Voltage brand match on the show with last year’s King Of Elite, “Fear Incarnate” Eclipse Diemos vs. “The Machine”, current EAW Champion, Y2Impact! This is really a match where whoever gets the win could change the landscape of Voltage and EAW in-general.
(The match pic of Eclipse vs Impact is shown)
Rex: If Diemos wins then The Sanatorium will have three titles in their possesion, that’s to say that Brody Sparks and Maero will retain and win their respective matches. But if Y2Impact wins then the title stays with him and keeps EAW seventh title reign going till his next defense. Do you think Eclipse has it in him to beat Y2Impact in this EAW?
Sabina: Yes, Absolutely! Eclipse Diemos has all the destructive capabilities in the world to beat down Imp and we have to see if that will happen.
HYC: Like Sabina said, Diemos has all the talent in the world needed to be a destructive Heavyweight wrestler but the big match presence of Impact might be the deciding factor.
Deadprez: It’s a simple pick for with Impact. If you aren’t picking Impact, you’re simply stupid and that’s it!
Rex: Well from one world title to another, Lannister vs Tyler Parker vs The Pizza Boy. Let’s just talk about Lannister’s current run of dominant form. Ever since Territorial Invasion, the man seems unstoppable. Like the Panzer Tank that he is, he’s just steamrolled through the competition. The WarGames match, Lioncross at ROP, the Tag Tournament with HBG, the Triple Threat match for the CITV briefcase. Is there any way in hell that, Pizza Boy and Tyler can stop this man?
(Match for Lannister vs Tyler vs PB appears on screen)
HYC: Nope! Definitely not, as great as both of them are, this is Lannister. This man is right now is just a pure monster. Lannister for this match.
Sabina: but remember how two years ago, Tyler Parker did something that I think may thought wouldn’t happened. He beat DDD, not only that but in the most convincing fashion, we’ve ever seen in EAW. Tyler on this one, another reign as World Champ is in his career
Deadprez: That’s old news, really. Tyler has changed into something else, it seems he can barely pick up a win now. I have to give it Lannister for this match. Size, Weight and even just recent run of form. He’s been untouchable!
(The match pic for Ares/Brian II replaces the AWC pic)
Rex: Onwards to the last Showdown match of the evening, Ares Vendetta with Jaywalker in his corner faces off against Brian Daniels with long time tag partner, Robbie V in his corner. Brian Daniels that was responsible for being there to end Ares’ title reign as Answers World Champion at Road To Redemption. Now Ares wanted this match at the Award show for KOE and it was the first of many matches announced for this stacked event, will Ares get his revenge in this brutal Trial By Combat match or will Brian get to put away “The Omen” for good? Prez, your thoughts?
Deadprez: Firstly! I’m actually glad that Brian injured and costed him his title Ares Vendetta, it was getting unbearable to see him as a world champ for this company and I have to say it that I HOPE and pray to god, that Brian Daniels puts him away for good.
Sabina: A little surprising answer from you, Prez but I have to agree. Ares will be stuck in a TBC match with Brian, who’s to say that Jaywalker will even think about throwing in the towel for him. Even if that man is hurt, this is still Jaywalker. Brian for me on this match.
HYC: Don’t get me wrong you two, I despise Ares like most of EAW but who’s too say that Brian hasn’t loosen a few screws inside of Ares Vendetta and brought a new side to the man. Remember this man is the son of Brian’s Corner man, Robbie V. RoV himself was mental at times, remember Sekaiichi. Who’s to say that Ares has something like that in him as well. My pick with Ares Vendetta.
Rex: With that, now would be the best time to take one last break, we’ve got another title match still to come in the pre-show alone. We’ll be right back with the last two matches of the main show.
(Commercial: WATCH KOE LIVE!!! We want moar EAWNetwork subcribers)
( Cut to the ring… the National Elite title graphic shows up on the screen. )
RA: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the National Elite Championship!!!
(“Guns and Roses” by Paradise Lunch plays as Mortimer Gotch steadily walks out, reaching up and twirling his mustache before heading down to the ring in a sophisticated manner. He leaps up to the apron, wiping his feet as the crowd chants his name.)
RA: Introducing first, the challenger! Hailing from Manhattan, New York! The Gentleman’s Gentleman! Mortimer Gotch!!
Pierre: The gentleman that many believe could be the one to dethrone the Iconoclast. Mortimer Gotch has been a fantastic superstar. And, I wouldn’t mind seeing him compete at a higher level. I think that a win over Nico would be excellent.
Cherish: How do you figure that he’s a high level performer? Especially in comparison to this athlete that is Nico Borġ. The superior athlete to this…this…fonz with a porn mustache.
Pierre: It is a well groomed mustache, as only gentlemen can grow facial hair of that caliber.
(“You Want it Darker” by Leonard Cohen plays as Nico Borg slowly strides to the ring, his championship hung over his shoulders. He continues to eye Gotch as he gets into the ring, shoving his title into the ref’s hands.)
RA: And his opponent, from Valetta, Malta!!! The National Elite Champion! The Iconoclast! Nico Borġ!!
Cherish: This man, is a champion. This Gotch fellow might be good in the ring, but he’s not threat. Not to the master of the ring like Nico.
Pierre: Nico has proven over a few matches that he is an in ring technician. And his mindstate of being this religious…fanatic for lack of a better term is frightening to say the least. He devotes every bit of his energy into trying to break his opponent.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Cherish: That’s the way it should be. Keep in mind this match is for the National Elite title. Mortimer Gotch and Nico Borg, circling the ring. Gotch, moving first, walking right to the center and offering out his hand?
Pierre: Start the match like a gentleman. Shake hands. Well…Gotch wanting to, but Nico just looks down at his hand with confusion. And a huge slap in the face as well to Gotch which shoots him to a knee. Gotch back up to his feet, and immediately throwing forearms over at Nico, who retaliates with some his own and now we are officially underway!!!
Cherish: Yeah, all that stupid gentleman stuff aside and we are into the action! Gotch, taking advantage early on. Throwing a few more fiery forearms into the chest of Nico, now off the ropes. Nico going for a lariat but Gotch ducks it. Rebounding off the ropes again, and delivering a hard dropkick to the left leg of Nico.
Pierre: Gotch will no doubt be looking for that Latchkey submission hold. Nico for The Crucible, but he may want to finish things with the Last Rites. Gotch, punch to the head and wrapping Nico in a front facelock. Nico though, playing the power game, back up to both feet, but Gotch kicking out his leg again, and right into a DDT!
Cherish: Gotch with some technical ability here, switching around and going to the leg, giving it a hard stomp. So Gotch is very much looking for that Latchkey. Also, taking out the legs is a good strategy in any match. Gotch with another stomp, and now grabbing the leg, picking it up. Leg DDT now!
Pierre: Nico’s left leg has to be screaming in pain right now. Gotch transitioning out, wrenching the leg hard against his knee, but Nico kicking him off with his right leg. Nico with another shot with that right leg and Gotch backs off. Nico, getting back to a vertical base, but here comes Gotch, going for that low dropkick!
Cherish: Nico moving out of the way. Gotch back to his feet, and right into a lariat by Nico!! Nico with an impressive move, and now Gotch back to his feet. Gotch stumbling about and right into Nico, lifting him up into the air, and driving him down right on the back of his neck with an Uranage.
Pierre: Yeah, but you can see Nico stumbling there as well. Trying to get some sense knocked back into that leg. Gotch writhing on the ground and Nico wisely going for a cover!!
Good kickout by Gotch.
Cherish: Smart cover by Nico, gives him time to rest that leg. Gotch rolling onto his back and Nico giving it a hard stomp with his right leg. You can see the strategies forming in the mind of Nico as he gives his back another stomp. Nico backing up, going for a punt kick and GOTCH GRABBING THE LEG!!! GOTCH TRIPPING UP NICO!!! ROLLING THROUGH AND THERE IT IS!!! INVERTED FIGURE FOUR ANKLE LOCK! LATCHKEY LOCKED IN!!!
Pierre: Not tight though! It’s not fully cinched in! Nico trying to fight out as Gotch tries to get in a better position! Nico looking like he may be stuck but…there we go! Nico getting his right leg free enough to deliver some hard kicks to the face of Gotch and that breaks him away.
Cherish: I thought Gotch had it there. Gotch so very close to taking it away. Nico though, drawing back to his feet, as Gotch struggles to his own feet. Gotch up to a stand and charging in, going for Nico again!!!
Pierre: CRUCIFIX DRIVER!!! CRUCIFIX DRIVER BY NICO!!! WHAT A MOVE!!! Nico cutting off Gotch with a devastating move!!! That looked excruciatingly painful as well, what a crash. Gotch clutching his stomach and back in pain right now. Nico yelling to the audience that it’s done. I think Nico going to end it here, once and for all. Nico grabbing Gotch and…yep. Powerbomb position.
Cherish: Gotch is in no man’s land. Better start praying to god for salvation! LAST RITES!!! POWERBOMB LUNGBLOWER!!! What a maneuver!!! And quickly going for the cover!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
RA: Here’s your winner, and still National Elite Champion!!! Nico Borg!!!!
Cherish: A dominant performance by Nico!!! And rightfully holding on to his title. The world is right.
Pierre: Gotch put up an impressive fight here tonight, but Nico brushing him aside and keeping hold of that title. I think that Gotch however still has Nico’s number, what with that Latchkey early in the match. We will just have to see!
(Another Commercial: Come to the Poon Palace in Miami and get a chance to meet TLA.)
Rex: Ladies and gentlemen, we’re back and let’s now talk about the match built from one betrayal of a long time friendship. Aria Jaxon vs Cailin Dillon for the Women’s World Title. How did we get to this point, well it’s pretty simple. Cailin would defeat Sheridan Muller for the Women’s Title as the old Vixens Championship was retired at RTR. Aria would earn this shot at 2016 Awards Show defeating Sheridan to receive a title shot for any title she wanted and she happened to select Cailin’s Women’s World Title. Now the former members of The Sirens face off to see who will rule Empire. “The Empress vs The Queen”, Sabina for someone like you who’s a legend in the old Vixens Division, did you think you ever saw a resurrection and even evolution of the old division?
Sabina: Yes, definitely! When women like Eris, Cailin, Aria and among others will arriving in this company and were helping the rebuild that was getting momentum thanks to Tarah, Haruna and Maddison. I thought that this division would be far greater than the old one, and matches like HBG vs Aria, Madison vs Eris, and Sheridan vs Cailin are there to prove my point on how far the women of this promotion have come. Aria and Cailin were at the forefront along with a few others like Eris, Tarah and even the OGs. But I have to give it Cailin on this one, as great as Aria is, we all remember what happened last time she was in a big time event for a title. Yes that Aria Jaxon is different but so is Cailin Dillon. The confidence levels for the champ is sky high right now, and that could be the deciding factor.
Deadprez: Exactly! Let’s remind you about Dillon’s first title reign here in EAW. THE longest reigning Specialist Title back when the title was at it’s most dangerous for the champ. Two week defenses and fought in multiple different stipulations, it shows her adaptability. While when Jaxon held a title, just a simple one month reign. She got outclassed and it shows in her PFP match with HBG. Cailin for me in this one.
HYC: Well looks like I’m against both of you on this one, Aria Jaxon is hungry for another title, and I feel like she could take herself to the very limit, if it meant to get another title reign. Cailin is a quite cocky as well as confident, and it definitely will be her downfall. The Queen Of The New Guard is taking her crown above the Empress. Let’s also remember that this is Cailin’s first defense, the nervousness is probably hitting her as she gets prepared for this match.
Rex: Well with that Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time we get into talking about our MAIN EVENT! The finals of King Of Elite.
(Video recapping the KOE tourney with Jamie O’Hara, Tiberius Jones and Drastik’s victories in their respective block for the tournament. Afterwards giving clips of each KOE winners notably both of Robbie V’s wins, Liam Catterson, Lannister, and Eclipse Diemos and all of the winners’ cash-in.)
Rex: What a long tournament we’ve had for KOE. Jamie, Tiberius, or Drastik? One of these men will become the 2017 King Of Elite. With the power of kingship, comes the power of getting a title shot at any point. Jamie has felt that effect because of Lannister’s Cash-in. What a change Jamie has made and it’s not just him going bald. Will Tiberius Jones went from tag team competition to Singles. And Drastik made a triumphant return at Shock Value after leaving at last year’s Reckless Wiring. Who do you believe will win the 2017 KOE finals?
Deadprez: A Dynasty guy in Jamie O’Hara. It’s about time this man returns to being a permanent man in the World Heavyweight Title scene.He defeated three of Dynasty’s top stars in Lucian Black, Drake Jagear and TLA. It’s going to take exactly, one knee strike to end and to make the King Of Bullets into the King Of Elite.
Sabina: I have to give it to Tiberius Jones for this one. It isn’t hard to see to make a case for this man, it’s been a steady rise since his last year. Never was there a point in time where I thought he wouldn’t be a main eventer or not be a main event quality elitist. If Jamie defeated three top stars, Jones defeated a HOFer in KD, and two New Breed Champs respectively in Chris Elite and Rex McAllister.I believe the Komodo Dragon takes his rightful place at the top as King.
HYC: And what about the Best In the World? Drastik can still go and proof of that was his return to the ring and victory over Nathan Fiora. He may have lost the Hardcore Title but now is just one step close to receiving. He defeated a mix of talent unlike your picks. Ahren Fourier and Jakob DeLion in round one, Solomon Caine in round two, and Mike Showman in round three. Drastik has to be in the best shape of his life and the proof of it will be in his eventual victory in King Of Elite.
Rex: With that ladies and gentlemen that is all the time we have for this edition of the Pre-Show Panel. My name is Rex McIntyre and for the rest of the team here, goodbye and remember to watch KOE live TONIGHT!
(The camera zooms out as we get a shot of the arena filling up and “Kings” by Tribe Society playing with commercial for the event taking up the rest of the time left)
( EAW Intro plays )
Narrator: What do we desire most?
(A massive Throne room is shown; empty and desolate. The loud footsteps of a lone person can be heard in the distance.)
Narrator: Is it redemption we seek for our past defeats?
(The figure, shrouded in darkness, walks past a large painting depicting a battle between two medieval soldiers that resemble Xavier Williams and Methuselah)
Narrator: Mere supremacy?
(The figure walks past a statue depicting a battle between two men that resemble Nasir Moore and Carson Ramsay)
Narrator: To indulge in our animalistic instincts?
(The figure walks past a large pool of coagulated blood with a barbed wire baseball bat lying in the center of it)
Narrator: Do we desire gold?
(The feet of the figure walk past the Hardcore Championship, Specialist Championship, Hall of Fame Championship, New Breed Championship, and National Elite Championship; all strewn about upon the floor)
Narrator: A right to call ourselves the best?
(The figure walks past the World Heavyweight Championship, EAW Championship, Answers World Championship, and Womens World Championship hanging above)
(A close-up is shown of a large Throne)
Narrator: Perhaps we desire more. Perhaps we desire to rule.
(The color of everything around the Throne becomes yellow as the ripped banners next to it become banners depicting a man resembling Drastik)
Narrator: To rise from the ashes of our past and rule.
(The color of everything around the Throne suddenly turns blue as the banners now depict a man resembling Tiberius Jones)
Narrator: To go further than we’ve ever come and rule.
(The color of everything around the Throne suddenly turns to red as the banners now depict a man resembling Jamie O’Hara)
Narrator: To take back all that we’ve lost and rule.
(The camera abruptly cuts to the Throne, desolate once more as the man in darkness sits upon it)
Narrator: Redemption, supremacy, gold, being the best, and indulging in our animalistic instincts… All come with sovereignty. All come with power. Tonight, a new man comes into power. One that will rise above the many that have failed. One that will take their place in line with all those that have come before them. One that will sacrifice everything and more for the right to sit upon this Throne with a Crown upon their head.
(Close-ups are shown of the faces of Drastik, Tiberius Jones, and Jamie O’Hara)

Stew-O: WELCOME, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO THE NIGHT WHERE WE WILL CROWN A BRAND NEW KING AMONG THE ABSOLUTE BEST EAW HAS TO OFFER! WELCOME TO KING OF ELITE!
(The Royal Arena is filled with smoke from the pyrotechnics, the deafening cheers of the fans and “Kings” by Tribe Society as the camera cuts to the Dynasty Commentary table where Stew-O and Jake Mercer are shown)
Jake: What a night! What an ARENA! This Denmark crowd is packed at the ABSOLUTE capacity and they’re ready to see one HELL of a show! I know I am!
Stew: Oh I don’t doubt it! We’re gonna witness undoubtedly the most competitive bout to crown a new King of Elite, but that’s not all by ANY means! We’ve got what is sure to be a barbaric Trial By Combat coming between Brian Daniels and Ares Vendetta! A huge Pain For Pride rematch on the way between Xavier Williams and Methuselah!
Jake: TONS of Championships on the line! It’s overwhelming! These people are ready for it! Look at them!
Stew: That’s right, every World Championship on the line! The World Heavyweight Championship, EAW Championship, Womens World Championship, and right now we’re going to get this show started off in a BIG way with a huge triple threat contest for the Answers World Championship as we give it away to Pierre McGuire and Cherish on Showdown Commentary!
(Camera cuts to Pierre and Cherish on Showdown Commentary)
Pierre: I’m elated to be here, alongside my beautiful, gorgeous, amazing-smelling broadcast partner, Cherish!
Cherish: Uh… Can we just get this underway?
Pierre: That’s right, we’re kicking things off with the Showdown main event, so let’s not waste anymore time!
(Camera fades to the center of the ring where the ring announcer is standing.)
(“T-Shirt” by Migos hits as Tyler Parker takes one step out on the stage, extending his arms to the side as silver sparklers go off. He makes his way down the ramp, smirking in arrogance as he ignores the fans and slides into the ring.)
Ring Announcer: The following match is a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, from his Penthouse in Monaco, weighing in at 220 pounds… HE IS TYLERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR PARKERRRRRRRR!!!
Cherish: NOW THIS IS HOW YOU START A SHOW OFF! WITH A MATCH WITH ONE OF THE BIGGEST STAKES! Why don’t we start with the challenger right before us? Tyler Parker has definitely amped up the arrogance and ignorance of fans as of late, and if anything has occupied his conscience, it is the hope of success. He has found himself in an opportunity that he is familiar to, but he is definitely taking up arms against two of the strongest competitors here in Elite Answers Wrestling!
(“Cowboy Song” by Faith No More hits as The Pizza Boy steps out. Fans cheer erratically and hold up slices of pizza, but The Pizza Boy has an emotion of no-nonsense plastered upon his visage. He walks down the ramp determined and focused solely on the ring, ignoring fans next to him.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent! From New York City, New York, weighing in at 175 pounds… HE IS “THE SELF-PROCLAIMED NOBODY…” THE PIZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BOY!!!
Pierre: Usually, I would proclaim loudly something corny and fun, but tonight… It feels different, at least right now! The Pizza Boy is not The Pizza Boy we are used to seeing week in and week out. This Pizza Boy… Is more determined. Less nonsense. Self driven. Ever since the unfortunate events at Road to Redemption, The Pizza Boy has been on a whole nother’ level! The fun has died out, but the victories have ramped up, and this match may be the pinnacle of seriousness for The Pizza Boy.
(“The Eagle Has Landed” by Avatar hits as Lannister steps out onto the stage with Athena Vendetta. He has the Answers World Championship around his waist, and as he walks down the ramp, red and yellow pyrotechnics shoot out in synchrony with his footsteps.)
Ring Announcer: AND THEIR OPPONENT! From Dortmund, Germany, weighing in at 252 pounds…. HE IS THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… DARTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH LANNNISTERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Cherish: Dominance. Lannister has epitomized that word in regard to his physical, verbal, and mental domination of the game. He has been on TOP of his game, putting out his best work over the past few weeks, and it has shown in all facets of his aura. His first title defense went well as he retired Nick Angel and retained his championship. Last week, he proved that he works for no one except himself, leaving Tyler Parker in the ring alone to face off against Brian Daniels and The Pizza Boy. Tonight, all three men are in the ring, and all the build up has culminated in this moment, right here, right now.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Pierre: THE TENSION COULD BE LACERATED WITH A BUTTERKNIFE, CHERISH! I do not think I have witnessed such intimidation between the darting eyes of three men as I am right now… Lannister looking at Pizza Boy, Pizza Boy glaring at Lannister, Tyler Parker changing glances between both men… AND TYLER PARKER CHARGES AT LANNISTER! FEUER FREI! FEUER FREI! LANNISTER LAUNCHES PARKER IN THE AIR AND LEVELS HIM WITH AN UPPERCUT FOR THE AGES! BUT THE PIZZA BOY RUNS UP BEHIND LANNISTER AND BASEBALL SLIDES INTO THE BACK OF HIS LEGS! LANNISTER DROPS TO HIS KNEES AND PIZZA BOY SCURRIES OVER PARKER AND COVERS!
Cherish: BUT LANNISTER GRABS THE PIZZA BOY BY HIS SHOULDERS AND PULLS HIM TO HIS FEET! He locks a grip around Pizza Boys waist… EXPLODING GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT THE PIZZA BOY LANDS ON HIS FEET! Lannister turns over onto one kne–PIZZA BOY WITH A RUNNING KNEE! BUT LANNISTER CATCHES HIS LEG, AND NOW HE STANDS UP AS THE PIZZA BOY IS TRYING TO BREAK FREE… BUT LANNISTER WITH AN EXPLODER BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX THAT ABSOLUTELY ANNIHILATES THE PIZZA BOY! Lannister moves over and lifts Tyler Parker up, shoving his groggy, lifeless body into the corner…. AND LANNISTER CHARGES! RUNNING DOUBLE KNEES TO HIS FEET! Lannister takes a step back as Tyler Parker stumbles out… AND LANNISTER HOISTS HIM UP! TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER CONNECTS AS PARKER IS LAID ACROSS LANNISTER’S KNEE LIKE A BLADE FORGED IN FIRE!
Pierre: BUT NOT SO FAST! The Pizza Boy is lurking behind Lannister… AND THE PIZZA BOY CHARGES! HE LEAPS! SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE FACE OF LANNISTER! HE USES TYLER PARKER’S SIGNATURE MOVE TO KNOCK LANNISTER A FEW FEET BACK, AND NOW HE HAS EYES SET ON VICTORY! The Pizza Boy hooks Tyler Parker in…. THE! LAST! SLICE! THE STANDING ASAI DDT CONNECTS AS TYLER PARKER’S SKULL IS DRIVEN INTO THE CANVAS! THIS IS JUST HOW THE PIZZA BOY CLINCHED VICTORY LAST WEEK AGAINST PARKER! The Pizza Boy drops down to co—LANNISTER IS BEHIND HIM AND HE PULLS HIM BACK! LANNISTER SWINGS WITH A RIGHT HAND! BUT THE PIZZA BOY DUCKS UNDERNEATH! AND THE PIZZA BOY WITH A JAB TO HIS FACE! ANOTHER! A THIRD! FOURTH! FIFTH! The Pizza Boy is ROLLING as he takes a step back…
Cherish: AND THE PIZZA BOY WITH A LEAPING DISCUS ELBOW SMASH TO THE SIDE OF LANNISTER’S HEAD! Lannister is now the one dazed and trying to recover as The Pizza Boy stands in the corner, taunting Lannister to come after him… AND LANNISTER CHARGES! HE GOES FOR A CLOTHESLIN—THE PIZZA BOY WITH A DROP TOE-HOLD INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! LANNISTER’S HEAD JUST COLLIDED WITH THAT TURNBUCKLE LIKE A TRAIN INTO A WALL! Lannister is bent over, leaning over the middle turnbuckle as The Pizza Boy takes a step back…. AND HE POINTS TO THE SKY AND YELLS AS HE CHARGES! DROPKICK TO THE BOTTOM OF LANNISTER! AND THE CHAMPION IS DRIVEN FURTHER INTO THE CORNER AS HE SHOULDER COLLIDES WITH THE CORNER POST! ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL!
Pierre: INDEED, CHERISH! The Pizza Boy is putting in the most work he can to wear down the blatantly heavier, taller, and stronger Lannister, and I think he is making efficient progress! The Pizza Boy takes a step back as Lannister stumbles out of the corner…. AND THE PIZZA BOY TURNS HIM AROUND! RIGHT HAND! LEFT HAND! WHAM! BAM! KABAM! UPPERCUT TO END THE SEQUENCE AND THE PIZZA BOY IS HAS LANNISTER SHOOK! The Pizza Boy bounces off the ropes as Lannister leans ove—LANNISTER HOISTS HIM UP AND DROPS HIM! SITOUT SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS! Lannister grabs both of his legs… LANNISTER IS LOOKING TO APPLY A BOSTON CRAB TO THE PIZZA BOY! BUT LOOK! TYLER PARKER HAS PULLED HIMSELF UP USING THE ROPES, AND HE IS CHARGING AT LANNISTER WITH HIS FIST UP! BUT LANNISTER WITH A KICK TO HIS GUT THAT SENDS SPIT AND AIR FLYING! The Champion pulls Tyler Parker in, hooking him precisely… AND HE HOISTS HIM UP! AND THE IMPERIUM! GANSO BOMB CONNECTS AS PARKER IS DROPPED ON HIS SKULL AND HE CANNOT FIND A LICK OF OFFENSE IN THIS MATCH!
Cherish: Lannister stands up and looks around himself, certainly pleased with his obliteration of his opposition, and he marches back over to The Pizza Boy, who has surely given a better fight than Tyler Parker. He pulls The Pizza Boy up and whips him into the ropes… AND LANNISTER SPINS! DISCUS ELBOW! BUT THE PIZZA BOY DUCKS UNDERNEATH AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES! Lannister turns around… THE PIZZA BOY CHARGES! BUT LANNISTER SWINGS HIM UP INTO A SIDEWALK SLA–NO! THE PIZZA BOY KEEPS THE MOMENTUM AND SPINS UP AND INTO LANNISTER’S TORSO! TILT-A-WHIRL DDT FROM THE PIZZA BOY! BUT LANNISTER DOES NOT FALL! He remains on his feet as The Pizza Boy has found himself in a pretty precarious situation… AND LANNISTER SNAPS BACK! NORTHERN LIGHTS BRIDGING SUPLEX CONNECTS AS THE PIZZA BOY IS DRIVEN INTO THE CANVAS!
Pierre: NO! THE PIZZA BOY IRKS A SHOULDER UP AFTER TWO! Lannister rolls over on top of him and is now dishing out a deal of right and left hands, and The Pizza Boy is doing all he can to block the strikes, but Lannister’s strength may be too much! Lannister stands up as The Pizza Boy is covering his face… Lannister leans over and pulls him u—THE PIZZA BOY WITH A THUNDEROUS UPPERCUT! THAT LOUD STRIKE ECHOES THROUGHOUT THE ARENA AS LANNISTER HOLDS HIS CHIN! Lannister is rubbing his chin and looking down at The Pizza Boy… AND HE SNAPS! LANNISTER TOSSES A RIGHT HAND BUT THE PIZZA BOY DUCKS UNDERNEATH! AND THE PIZZA BOY IS BEHIND LANNISTER AS HE LEAPS DOWNWARDS! DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF LANNISTER’S KNEE CONNECTS! The champion is on one knee as The Pizza Boy bounces off the ropes….
Cherish: ENZUIGIRI CONNECTS AS LANNISTER HAS HIS SKULL ROCKED QUITE A BIT! The Pizza Boy quickly jerks him into a side headlock and has it tightly applied…. AND HE SNAPS DOWN! SNAP DDT CONNECTS AND LANNISTER MAY BE OUT ON THE MAT! The Pizza Boy exits to the apron as he begins to ascend up the top rope, and he is trying to balance himself as Lannister gets onto his hands and knees, barely able to hold himself up… AND THE PIZZA BOY LEAPS! THE FAZBEAR FLOP! BACK SENTON TO LANNISTER CONNECTS AS HE IS DRIVEN BACK INTO THE MAT, FACE FIRST! The Champion is trying to use the ropes to pull himself to safety, but The Pizza Boy kicks his arm away and drags him to the center of the ring! He covers as Tyler Parker lies lifelessly on the apron!
Pierre: A FAZBEAR FLOP WILL NOT KEEP OUR CHAMPION DOWN! EMPHATIC SHOULDER UP AS THE PIZZA BOY NEARLY GOT LAUNCHED THREE FEET IN THE AIR! The Pizza Boy finds himself on his feet again as Lannister is trying to use the ropes as leverage in aid to getting to his feet… BUT THE PIZZA BOY DRIVES A KICK INTO HIS RIBS! THAT SOUND TRAVELED THROUGH THE ARENA LIKE A GUNSHOT! The Pizza Boy lifts up on Lannister’s chin… AND HE PUNCHES HIM RIGHT IN THE NOSE AS BLOOD IMMEDIATELY BEGINS TO TRICKLE DOWN LIKE WATER FROM A LEAKY FAUCET! The Pizza Boy pulls his arm back again… AND ANOTHER PUNCH POUNDS INTO LANNISTER’S NOSE AS THE BLOOD SPREADS ACROSS HIS FACE LIKE PAINT ON A CANVAS! AND NOW THE PIZZA BOY IS UNLOADING, AND HIS FIST IS BECOMING BLOODIER AND BLOODIER AS LANNISTER IS TAKING THESE HITS LIKE A CHAMP! THE CHAMP THAT HE IS!
Cherish: The Pizza Boy takes a step back as he wipes his hand on his plain, white trunks and takes a step back…. AND HE LEAPS! SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE FACE OF LANNISTER CONNECTS! The champion is finding himself in a pretty unfortunate situation as The Pizza Boy reaches up around his neck, locking him in… AND HE LEAPS UP! DOWN! SITOUT JAWBREAKER CONNECTS AS LANNISTER FLAILS BACKWARDS INTO THE CORNER IN SHEER AND UTTER PAIN! The Pizza Boy now rolls onto his feet as he looks onward, staring at Lannister who is struggling to maintain his balance… AND THE PIZZA BOY RUNS! RUNNING CORNER KNEE CONNECTS AS LANNISTER’S HEAD IS KNOCKED UPWARDS! Pizza Boy locks in a vise on the neck of Lannister as he runs out of the corner…
Pierre: AND THE PIZZA BOY GOES FOR A BULLDOG INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING! BUT LANNISTER SHOVES HIM AWAY! The Pizza Boy bounces off the opposite corner and he stumbles backwards… LANNISTER WITH A REVERSE ATOMIC DROP! Lannister runs towards the ropes… AND HE LEAPS!… SPRINGBOARD SPINNING FEUER FREI! FEUER FREI FROM THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION CONNECTS AS HE PULLS BACK ON THE LEG OF THE PIZZA BOY!
Cherish: BUT THE PIZZA BOY KICKS OUT! HE KICKS OUT OF THAT FEUER FREI OUT OF NOWHERE! THE RESISTANCE OF THIS MAN IS OUT OF THIS WORLD! Lannister is clearly not very happy as he stands up and leans over, pulling The Pizza Boy to his feet… Meanwhile, Tyler Parker is looking underneath the ring and he reaches down… AND TYLER PARKER HAS A KENDO STICK AS HE SLIDES IN THE RING BEHIND LANNISTER! Lannister has The Pizza Boy between his legs… AND HE IS LOOKING FOR A P—NO! TYLER PARKER SWINGS THAT KENDO STICK AND IT WISPS INTO THE SPINE OF LANNISTER! Lannister drops The Pizza Boy and turns around, staring at Tyler Parker with the utmost expression of anger… AND TYLER PARKER SWINGS AT HIS HEAD! BUT LANNISTER CATCHES THE KENDO STICK! AND HE YANKS IT OUT OF TYLER’S HANDS… AND HE JABS IT INTO THE GUT OF PARKER AS HE LEANS OVER! AND LANNISTER SNAPS THE KENDO STICK OVER HIS KNEE! AND NOW HE IS USING THE EXPOSED SPLINTERS AS HE SLASHES INTO THE SPINE OF TYLER PARKER, OCCASIONALLY STABBING AT HIM WITH IT! PARKER’S BACK IS A STORM OF BLOODY LACERATIONS, AND LANNISTER CONNECTS WITH A HEADBUTT THAT SENDS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT IN AN INSTANT!
Pierre: NOT JUST ANY INSTANT! A BLOODY INSTANT, I TELL YA! Lannister looks down at Tyler Parker, shaking his head in shame at the events that have unfolded… WAIT! THE PIZZA BOY ROLLED OUT OF THE RING AND HE HAS A STEEL CHAIR! HE SLIDES IN BEHIND LANNISTER… AND HE JABS THAT CHAIR INTO THE BACK OF BOTH OF HIS KNEES! AND LANNISTER DROPS IN AN INSTANT! The Pizza Boy turns him around… AND HE IS UTILIZING TRIPLE THREAT NO DISQUALIFICATION LIKE A COMPLETE NATURAL! HE SWINGS THAT STEEL CHAIR RIGHT OVER THE CRANIUM OF LANNISTER! AND LANNISTER DROPS INTO THE CANVAS LIKE A CORPSE! The Pizza Boy pulls Tyler Parker towards the center of the ring, and he drops the steel chair into the mat… He is looking to end it all right here…
Cherish: AND HE HAS HIM IN POSITION! HE LEAPS UP! THE LAST SLICE! STANDING ASAI DDT INTO THE STEEL CHAIR CONNECTS AS TYLER PARKER’S SKULL IS DRIVEN DEEP INTO THAT STEEL CHAIR! THE PIZZA BOY HAS THIS MATCH COMPLETELY SECURED AS HE LEA—LANNISTER GETS TO HIS FEET WITH A SENSE OF URGENCY BEHIND HIM! AND HE TURNS THE PIZZA BOY AROUND! AND HE JABS HIM IN THE GUT WITH THE SHARP END OF THAT KENDO STICK! Lannister now grips his hand around his throat… AND HE TOSSES HIM INTO THE AIR IN CHOKESLAM FORMATION! BUT TURNS SUDDENLY INTO A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! FEUER FREI! FEUER FREI CONNECTS AS THE PIZZA BOY IS DOWN AT OUT! LANNISTER KICKS HIM OUT OF THE RING! He now turns over towards Tyler Parker and is staring him down…
Pierre: AND THE VICIOUS STAR OF MOURNING HAS TAKEN AIM AT TYLER PARKER! HE REACHES DOWN AND PULLS HIS DEADWEIGHT, LIFELESS BODY UP AND HOOKS HIM BETWEEN HIS LEGS… AND HE HOISTS HIM UP! THE IMPERIUM! IMPERIUM! THE GANSO BOMB INTO THAT STEEL CHAIR CONNECTS AS TYLER PARKER HAS TO BE ABSOLUTELY CONCUSSED AT THIS POINT! AND LANNISTER HOOKS THE LEG AS PIZZA BOY IS NOT MOVING ON THE OUTSIDE!
ONE!………… TWO!……….. THREE!……….
(Ding! Ding! Ding)
(“The Eagle Has Landed” by Avatar hits as Lannister is handed his championship, and Athena hands him a towel in which he dabs at the blood on his face with. He rolls out of the ring, putting his arm around Athena as he retreats backwards up the ramp, holding his championship high.)
Ring Announcer: And your winner, via pinfall… AND STILL! EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… LANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNISTER!!!
Cherish: AND LANNISTER RETAINS! LANNISTER HAS FOUGHT OFF TWO MEN AND THAT CHAMPIONSHIP REMAINS IN HIS HANDS! Lannister fought a winning, valiant fight today, and the casualties of war need to be mentioned. The Pizza Boy used every ounce of fight and resistance in him to secure the championship that he had so briefly held before, and he got so close every time… But Lannister found a way to keep the odds in his favor.
Pierre: Not just that, but Tyler Parker may have put out a showing that goes down in infamy. He just absolutely COULD NOT get on ANY sort of roll! Every attempt of offense he put forth got side stepped and reversed. He took many BRUTAL hits tonight, and I am INTIMATELY concerned for his health after the The Last Slice and The Imperium into that steel chair. He cannot be in a good state… BUT LANNISTER SURE IS! The champion PREVAILS over the challengers, and tonight’s defense was the second in what looks to be a bloody, strong reign.
(The camera transitions to the backstage locker room, where Eclipse is tugging on his gloves. He runs his hands against his wrists before turning around, spying Maero, Brody, and the rest of the Sanatorium. He smiles to them, before opening his arms as they all rush in holding him in a hug.)
Eclipse: Not a day passes that I’m not thankful for every single one of you. Let’s make this King of Elite a night to remember…forever.
(The group continues to embrace before the sound of clapping can be heard. The group break apart and stare as Y2Impact walks in, shaking his head at the group.)
Y2Impact: Isn’t that just adorable? The little clan of freaks trying to be a family.
Brody Sparks: More of a family than your limp dick ass will ever have?
Y2Impact: Speak when spoken too.
Eclipse: Fine. Then, I’ll do the talking. What do you want Machine?
(The two lock eyes, and Eclipse pushes past his family, getting into the face of Impact. As the two stare down Eclipse smiles, laughing to himself.)
Y2Impact: I hope you know that regardless of me losing my title by DQ, I can still keep it if your family disqualifies you.
Eclipse: I don’t need them to fight my wars for me Impact.
Y2Impact: That might be the biggest mistake of your career. Because you, will never. Ever. Beat me.
(As the two lock horns the rest of the Sanatorium gathers behind Eclipse as he spreads his arms out. Impact eyes them all before backing away, adjusting the title on his shoulder as he walks out of the locker room, the camera fading to black.)
(We return to ringside as “I Am Electric” by Heaven’s Basement starts to play, drawing the excitement of the crowd as they see Nasir Moore make his way to the ring, rushing down the ramp with high energy.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Newark, New Jersey, weighing in at 212 pounds, he is “The Agent of Change”…..NAAAASSSIIIIRRRRR MOOOOOREEEEE!!!!
WWEFan: Tonight Nasir Moore is competing in his first match since he announced his new plan of action in regards to becoming EAW Champion. For those who don’t know, Nas has grown tired of being looked at as someone who people think of as being mid tier or out of place in the main event scene, he wants all doubts of his ability to be gone and so he is looking to run through the best Elitists there are so that he can’t be denied any longer. He’ll be able to start off right if he can get a win here at KOE.
(“My Own Summer (Shove It)” by The Deftones plays as Carson Ramsay slowly makes his way toward the ring, deliberately dragging his feet as he looks on at the thousands of booing fans. He stops at ringside and spots a fan holding a Nas sign, walking up to them and ripping it up into pieces the same way he did last week. He tosses the pieces back at the crowd member before entering the ring.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Batman, Turkey, now residing in Boulder City, Nevada, weighing in at 230 pounds! He is “The Defiler of Elite”……CAAAARRRRSSOOONNNN RAMSSSAAYYY!!!
Kawajai: Carson Ramsay is entering this match with a new plan of action too. One that is more in your face and violent. Carson Ramsay is a very angry and frustrated man who sees Nasir Moore as someone taking up a spot that should belong to him. He too is looking to forge a path to the EAW Championship and will do whatever it takes to get there. Both men could use this win to get their 2017 rolling.
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan:The bell has rung as Nasir Moore and Carson Ramsay step out of their corners and meet up face to face in the middle of the ring. Carson Ramsay is talking all kinds of trash right now, egging Nasir Moore on to make the first move. Nasir takes the bait and swings at Carson as Carson falls back to avoid it. Carson is now mocking Nas even more as Nasir Moore rushes in for a second attack! He swings and he swings as Carson backs up each time, feeling for the ropes as he goes between them to force the referee to break this up! Nasir is backed away as Carson gets out of those ropes and chooses then to pick his spot. Hard right to the jaw! Nas just got rocked! Nasir was nearly knocked off of his feet as he kneels over, covering his mouth, probably feeling around for any missing teeth there as Carson carries on with a knee lift to the side of the head! That forced Nas to shoot up real quick!
Kawajai: With Nas standing up on wobbly legs, Carson sees his opening to nail him with a series of body shots! Carson showing off here with his striking ability, he taped up his fists tonight for a reason as he is delivering those shots as hard as he can! Nasir walks off, wanting some distance but Carson leaps toward him and catches him in the back with an elbow which drops him to his knees! Then a double axe handle to the top of the skull! Carson stands over him, reaching down to grab him by the waist and lift him up in a gutwrench but hold on! Nasir is showing some resistance on his end! He’s fighting it!
WWEFan: Nasir is firing off hits to the rib cage, weakening Carson’s grip as he is now able to slide through his clutches and transition to the legs! Nasir attempting to turn this into a sunset flip — but no! Carson Ramsay stands firm! Carson is not letting himself get stacked up, blocking the sunset flip and then leaning in to lift up Nasir! Carson is going to deadlift him into the air as he is looking for a suplex! He has him up….but down he goes! Nasir weighing himself down and countering it! INSIDE CRADLE! THE REFEREE DROPS DOWN TO COUNT, IT’S A COVER!
Kawajai: Kickout! Carson Ramsay forces himself out of it! Carson angrily scrambles back up to his feet so he can get back into control, only for a still downed Nasir to sweep the leg and jump on him in a lateral press! A second cover by Nasir but the referee can’t even get into position to count for this one as Carson Ramsay IMMEDIATELY pushes him off! Nasir Moore is now the first to return to a vertical base! What is he — Nasir tears at the shirt of Carson Ramsay, exposing his chest so he can deliver an absolutely NASTY chop to the chest! Carson wants to respond with a chop of his own but Nasir catches the hand and traps him in a wrist lock, twisting the arm of Carson and binding it behind his back!
WWEFan: Nasir has Carson wincing in pain…and then he presses Carson down into the canvas and turns that wrist lock into a Fujiwara Armbar! Carson looking around to see which set of ropes he is nearest to but that might be a bit futile, Nasir is laying right on his back to keep him from moving! Carson recognizes this and so he takes his hand….AND FISH HOOKS NASIR OFF OF HIM! Carson is now getting himself in a dominant position here, placing Nasir between his knees and tossing him right into the turnbuckle with a powerbomb! Nasir bounces out of that corner, heading right into a scoop slam from Carson who follows that up with a hook of the leg and a cover of his own!
Referee: ONEEEEE…..TWWWW —
Kawajai: Nasir Moore gets the shoulder up! It will take more than that to keep him down! Carson Ramsay takes both hands and brings them down right on the body of Nas, letting out his frustrations! Carson walks away so that he can cool it down on the instructions of our official, but he simply comes back around shortly after, using that separation as momentum for a baseball slide, shooting Nasir stomach first into the steel ring post! Nasir had the wind knocked right out of him! Nasir falls over onto the outside clutching at his stomach as he can barely even breathe!
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay is watching Nasir get up from inside of the ring. He gets close to the ropes, leans down…AND THEN SPITS RIGHT ON NAS! Disgusting! The disrespect being shown right there as the fans are letting him hear it! That loogie just woke Nas right up though as he is fuming, pushing himself up as fast as he can! The camera is getting a good look at the face of Nasir as he is using the tarp to pull him up to a vertical base and he is SEETHING right now and Carson likes it! He rebounds off of the ropes and comes running across the ring, shooting through the ropes like a bullet ripping through Nas’ chest with that suicide dive!
Kawajai: Carson Ramsay came at Nasir Moore, smashing him into the steel barricade at high velocity! Nasir nearly falls over until Carson catches him and picks him up over his shoulder and delivers a flapjack, leaving Nasir hung up over that crowd restraint! Carson pulls Nas in by the trunks soon after, tearing Nas away from the fans trying to cheer him on. Waist lock by Carson Ramsay…..GERMAN SUPLEX AGAINST THE APRON, SENDING THE SPINE OF NAS ONTO THAT HARD EDGE OF THE RING! Nasir is looking lifeless like a rag doll, the kid doesn’t look like he even knows where he is!
WWEFan: Nasir Moore is being grabbed by the hair now as Carson drags him to his feet, and hits him with a head butt! Carson reared back so far you could hear their skulls crack upon contact! Carson does it again! And a third time! The hard headed lunatic Carson now has made both of their skulls start to bloody! Nasir shoves Carson away, sending him into the ring post! Carson puts his hands up and stops himself. He goes running back to Nasir — and eats an enzuigiri to the side of the head! Nasir made a desperation move there as he now has to regain his balance and his composure!
Kawajai: Carson won’t let him though! He stays on him, running toward him with a clothesline! But Nasir ducks it…SUPERKICK! Carson Ramsay just got stunned by that! Nasir rolls in and out of the ring to break the count and then gets on the apron, looking back at Carson who is still not all of their mentally from that kick! He jumps on the middle rope, then bounces his way to the top….SPLIT LEGGED MOONSAULT OFF OF THE THIRD ROPE ONTO CARSON ON THE FLOOR! Nasir making a comeback! He rises to his feet with his second wind having returned as Carson Ramsay is crawling away! He does not want anything to do with that! Ohhhh, but Nasir sees him and is hot on his tail though!
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay is resting near our announce table! No, no, don’t get us involved in this! We might need to get the hell out of the way Kawa —
Kawajai: THERE GOES NASIR MOORE AS HE TAKES OFF WITH A JUMPMAN DROPKICK, SENDING CARSON FLIPPING OVER THE ANNOUNCE TABLE AND ONTO OUR SIDE OF THINGS! YOU ALRIGHT, FAN?
WWEFan: I am :whew: but I don’t think Carson Ramsay is going to be! He’s looking very confused and disoriented as he digs himself out of all of the wires and other technical equipment, meanwhile there is Nasir Moore standing over him on our table! Shoot kick to the jaw! Carson Ramsay falls over, landing into my chair as his eyes are glazed over! Nasir jumps off that table and heads over to him, pushing that chair around ringside with Carson still in it! He looks Carson dead in the face to see that he’s still having trouble responding and now the gears are turning in his mind for what he should do next! Again he heads into the ring to stop the count, but as he slides back out he’s not looking at Carson, he has his eyes on something else!
Kawajai: Nasir Moore is looking at the steel ring steps! He pulls them out of position and has them placed on the middle of the floor! Nasir slams them to test the give on those things as there is NONE! That right there is solid! Nasir turns back around to Carson Ramsay and gets behind the chair, pulling it back and then pushing it, releasing it from his grips as those wheels go rolling — AND THE CHAIR GOES SPEEDING DOWN RINGSIDE WITH CARSON ON IT, CRASHING RIGHT INTO THOSE STEEL STEPS! Carson had no way of protecting himself! Carson is getting out of that wreckage looking banged up!
WWEFan: Our ringside area is looking like a scene from a car crash as Nasir Moore tosses Carson Ramsay back into the ring and again gets on the apron, looking to climb up the ropes and enter the high rent district once more! Carson Ramsay is starting to gather his senses and get up to his feet…his back is turned to Nasir who is up top, he is none the wiser to him being perched there…..Nasir gets his attention….AND COMES FLYING FROM ABOVE WITH A HIGH CROSS BODY! NASIR STAYS ON TOP FOR A LATERAL PRESS, IT’S A COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEE….TWOOOOOOO….THR —
Kawajai: Carson Ramsay kicks out! That was a close call but he got the shoulder up! Nasir Moore is looking to bring him back up to his feet so that he can deliver more punishment. Carson Ramsay saves himself though with a jawbreaker to keep Nasir at bay! Nasir recovers quickly and comes correct with a right hand! Carson Ramsay falls back, hits the ropes, uh oh!
WWEFan: Carson comes back like a pendulum! WICKED CHARM LARIAT! NASIR MOORE JUST GOT SUCKERED IN AND NOW HAS BEEN TURNED INSIDE OUT! CARSON DELIVERING ONE OF THE BEST LARIATS I’VE EVER SEEN, HE DAMN NEAR TOOK NAS’ HEAD OFF!
Kawajai: Carson Ramsay is looking really happy with himself! He motions to the referee before he drops down, hooks both leg and locks Nasir Moore in tight for a pin attempt! This could be it!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THRRRRRRR —
Kawajai: NASIR MOORE BARELY KICKS OUT! THAT WAS JUST IN THE KNICK OF TIME! Carson Ramsay keeps Nasir in his clutches, carrying Nas as he gets up to his feet himself and then delivers an inverted backbreaker! Carson maintains his grip still….STO FOR A FOLLOW UP! Carson is playing with Nas now, watching him get up, measuring him! He sees Nas and then runs up the ropes, shooting to the top rope and going flying himself! FLYING ELBOW TO A STANDING NASIR MOORE, TAKING HIM DOWN! CARSON HOOKS THE LEG AGAIN, LOOKING TO FINALLY SEAL THE DEAL THIS TIME!
WWEFan: CRUCIFIX PIN! CRUCIFIX PIN! NASIR MOORE SWITCHING IT ON CARSON RAMSAY INTO AN ATTEMPT OF HIS OWN!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE….TWOOOOOOO…. THRRR —
WWEFan: Carson Ramsay is forced to let go of Nasir in order to escape that pin! Both men scramble to their feet, Carson swipes at Nas — Nas ducks! THE BRICK CITY BOMB! NASIR WITH THE BLUE THUNDER BOMB AS, WAIT, NO! CARSON SPINS OUT OF IT! CARSON RETREATING TO THE CORNER AS NASIR RUNS AT CARSON! A SECOND JUMPMAN DROPKICK! OH! WHAT THE!? CARSON USING THE REFEREE AS A SHIELD AS HE EATS THE DROPKICK! THAT WAS BLATANTLY INTENTIONAL!
Kawajai: The referee drops to the ground looking out of it as Nasir is shocked! He turns around! Kick to the midsection! Carson then pulls him in….FATEFUL 89! CARSON DROPPING NASIR ON HIS HEAD AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER BUT SOON REALIZES HE CAN’T AS THE REF IS STILL DOWN! That move was not too wise by Carson, we need an official for the pin to be counted! Carson Ramsay heads to the referee and grabs him by the collar as he starts to shake him and slap him around, doing whatever it takes to bring him back to his senses!
Carson Ramsay: Come on! Wake up! WAKE UP!
WWEFan: Carson is dragging the referee all around the ring as the referee is just now starting to come to! Carson sees this and lifts him up, standing him up against the corner as he instructs him to count the pin! All Carson has to do is turn back around and go for that cover — or so he thinks! Nasir Moore is up and he is signaling to the referee to get out of the way! The ref’s eyes widen as he scampers off, meanwhile the confused Carson turns around….RIGHT INTO AN ETHER! THE HELLUVA KICK SMACKING CARSON AGAINST THE TEMPLE AND DOWN HE GOES! NASIR DROPS DOWN TO HOOK THE LEG, THE REF GETS IN POSITION!
Referee: ONEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEE!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“I Am Electric” by Heaven’s Basement plays as Nasir Moore shoots up to his feet and runs to the outside, celebrating with fans as the referee follows him to raise his hand.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner…….NAAAAAASSSSIIIRRRR MOOOOOOREEEEEEE!!!!
Kawajai: Nasir Moore coming through with a big win here against a very game, very aggressive Carson Ramsay. That was a tough one, Carson beat Nasir Moore down badly at the start, the guy is one of the best brawlers in pro wrestling with those devastating strikes of his and his ability to wear out his opponents. He really had Nasir’s back up against the wall which in turn forced Nas to get creative and risky. That split legged moonsault, that idea with the steel steps, the last ditch effort Ether, Nasir returned the favor to Carson hard.
WWEFan: Karma seemed to have returned the favor to Carson too, using that referee might not have helped him in the long term at all, once he had Nas ready for a pin there was nobody there to count it and that gave Nas time to recover! Carson will be walking away tonight with a huge “what if” as Nasir gets to walk away this victory, congrats to him.
(Nasir Moore runs up the ramp and poses on stage as we fade away from ringside.)
(Camera transitions backstage to a stoic Ares Vendetta taping up his wrists as a seated Jaywalker looks on from behind)
(Ares nods as he continues to tape up his wrist. A visibly annoyed Jaywalker gets on his feet, stepping closer)
(Ares turns to Jaywalker)
Jaywalker: Are you ready?
(Jaywalker says nothing for a few seconds as he eyes the right arm of Ares in a cast)
Jaywalker: You don’t look ready. This isn’t just some Title match. This isn’t one of your little quests for vengeance. Do you know what kind of match this is, Ares?
Ares: I was there for the first Trial By Combat. I’m well aware–
Jaywalker: You were there, and you failed if I remember correctly. You failed to win. You failed to accomplish your goal. I’m well aware of all your work, Ares. You’re impressive, there’s no doubt about that. You’re one of the best this company has ever had, better than your father ever was. Your only problem is that you make the mistake of letting things go on far longer than needed. This isn’t Lannister or Vic Vendetta or Devan Dubian or anyone else you’ve got tattooed on your back. This isn’t going on any longer, do you understand? I want this ended tonight. TONIGHT. Not tomorrow, not next week, not a month from now, TONIGHT. Got it?
(Ares starts to smile as Jaywalker shakes his head)
Jaywalker: Don’t smile.
Ares: I have a reason to.
Jaywalker: You seem confident about a win for a man with a broken arm.
Ares: No… I don’t intend to win.
Jaywalker: Is that right?
(Ares slowly shakes his head as he looks at the cast on his right arm)
Ares: Why do you think I chose my father to be in Brian Daniels’ corner for this? Why do you think I made a catatonic, broken down, shell of a man like Robbie V the only one capable of ending this match for Daniels?
(Ares looks Jaywalker dead in the eyes)
Ares: He’s not going to throw in a towel. He’s not going to surrender for anyone. He’s going to sit there, and he’s going to watch. He’s going to watch everything I do to his friend. He’s going to watch me maim Brian Daniels. Everything I do to him tonight… I want my father to watch every second of it. There may not be an ounce of life left in him, but I hope that, deep down, there’s a little piece of Robbie V cheering on his former partner. Nothing would please me more than to take that last piece away from him, because tonight… I’m not intending to win. I’m gonna kill him. I’m going to kill Brian Daniels in that ring tonight. I’m going to end his life… And then, who knows, maybe when I’m done with Daniels, I’ll put my father out of his misery and do the World a favor. This will end tonight.
(The camera cuts backstage to Empire’s special interviewer… SCARLET!)
Scarlet: Welcome all you cis morons! As I wait to be booked against some actual worthy competition… I am here to interview other idiots who actually have matches. Not that they deserve them! Anyway… here’s Haruna!!!!
(Haruna Sakazaki comes in wearing a pink colored kimono as she bows respectfully to Scarlet.)
Scarlet: Yeah if you bow any lower you gonna find what the doctor left lying around down there.
Haruna: Umm okay? I just wanted to come out here to announce that my cornerwoman for this match.
Scarlet: I see… That seems like an incomplete sentence but you are Asian so we will allow it. I mean I am an incomplete woman and I think that is perfectly allowed!
Haruna: I will allow it. But please also allow my cornerwoman at this time… AZUMI GOTO!!!
(Azumi Goto comes into the picture carrying her Control in the Vault briefcase.)
Haruna: Azumi is one of my closest friends here in EAW so I know she will have my back. Tonight you are going to witness a new EAW Specialists Champion! I am doing it for all my friends and everyone who ever believed in me! I can’t let them down! I won’t!
Azumi: That’s right. I will personally guarantee that anyone who fucks with Harubae gets these fists. Let’s go Haruna.
(Azumi storms off with Haruna following her after bowing respectfully to Scarlet.)
Scarlet: Well that was really exciting. I should have been booked instead of this interview. I’m the best Biden on this roster after all! Anyway… here comes Brody Sparks!!!
(Brody Sparks enters twirling her hair and holding the EAW Specialists Championship in one hand and a spiked dildo in the other.)
Scarlet: So Brody… when am I going to finally get booked?
Brody: Awww you think I care you little freak?
Brody: You disgusting freak get the fuck outta my sight!
(Brody swings her spiked dildo at Scarlet who runs away screaming in a very deep manly tone.)
Brody: Well now that’s better! Let’s talk real now. Haruna you have no chance against me. I am the EAW Specialists Champion and I will probably hold this title forever because I have no real competition. You just aren’t good enough sweetie! I’ve been slitting my wrists all week waiting for this match so sadly for you I probably don’t have a lot of blood left to go into your bucket!!! But what I do have is a blood bond… which is more than I can say for your pathetic choice in Azumi!!!
(Cloud Matsuda enters as she smiles for the camera and shows off a moss covered wooden blood bucket that looks like it has had blood in it recently.)
Brody: That’s right. My cornerwoman will be my own Sanatorium Sister… Cloud! Cloud knows all about blood… In fact she has been on her period recently so you could say she is completely ready for this match. Isn’t that right Cloud?
Cloud: Yah that’s right Brody! If Azumi even tries to mess with me she’s gonna regret it! Any funny business and she can cash me outside how bow dah?
(Brody and Cloud leave as the camera cuts to a video package for the upcoming Blood Bucket Match between Brody and Haruna.)
(Video Package airs followed by an advertisement for the hottest fast food restaurant out in Arby’s. Just like the girls on Empire we have the meats!)
(The camera cuts to Empire’s morally progressive female ring announcer standing in the ring and holding an “Equality” sign and wearing a pussy hat.)
MPFRA: LADIES and “gentlemen” the following contest is the first ever Blood Bucket Match! As a disclaimer I would advise all the haters out there who think women can’t do hardcore matches to check their privilege and get out of the arena. The male ego is far more fragile than the female body as you will all soon find out! I would like you all now to stand silent and respectful as these women march to the ring as an expression of their long denied rights.
(The light turns black as the crowd turns on red lightsticks and make Xs with them. “Junai Chaos” by Tokyo Performance Doll begins to play. A massive red X appears on the titantron as two spotlights go up and Haruna appears on the entranceway.)
MPFRA: Introducing first the challenger… from Akihabara, Japan… she is “The Vixen of A Thousand Dreams” HARRRRRRRRRRRUNA SAKAZAKIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!
(The crowd goes wild as Haruna comes down the ramp accompanied by her second Azumi Goto. Azumi is shown carrying a bucket in one arm and her Control in the Vault briefcase in the other. Haruna stands up on one corner of the ring as she plays to the crowd.)
MPFRA: Also her cornerwoman AZUMI GOTO!!!! I feel that it is important that Azumi receive her own introduction. Many here in attendance may not be able to tell these two Asian women apart but that is simply due to your own cultural prejudices. Please take care in noting that these are two fiercely independent women who deserve your respect.
SG1: Well as our ring announcer continues to rant let’s actually talk about this match… Haruna Sakazaki is the first ever EAW Specialists Champion. Her reign was not very long however and she is looking to redeem herself tonight against the champion Brody Sparks.
Starr: Well I do say son I am mighty surprised to see a spitfire young lass like Azumi out here with Haruna. My that Azumi girl is somethin’ fine as we say ‘round my parts she is tasty like fried rice.
SG1: Starr please… comments like that are why HR forced this ring announcer on us…
MPFRA: Ahem… listen! I know you would all prefer a male ring announcer out here to mansplain the names and locations of the Vixens entering in this match. But too damn bad! You all have no choice but to listen to me because I am going to shut you down everytime you try to disrespect these fine women!!!
(The crowd boos as the beginning chords of “RX Queen” are heard. The arena goes pitch black as purple fog erupts from the top of the ramp.)
MPFRA: And her opponent…
(“RX Queen” by Deftones hits!!!)
MPFRA: HER opponent from Brockton, Massachusetts… SHE is the EAW Specialists Champion… BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRODY SPARKSSSSSSSSSSSSSs!!!
(Brody Sparks comes crawling through the purple fog slowly as the camera zooms in on her face. Brody is shown with dark black eyes due to her contact lenses as she slowly stands up just outside the ring. Brody crawls into the ring before slithering into a corner and twirling her hair. Stephanie Matsuda appears carrying a bucket as she smiles sinisterly over at Haruna and Azumi.)
SG1: Brody Sparks one of the most intimidating presences on Empire is out here tonight along with Cloud Matsuda to represent The Sanatorium Sisters. Brody has made a dominant rise to the top of Empire as she looks to possibly do more than just defeat Haruna here tonight.
Starr: My oh lawd almighty! I oughtta tip my ten gallon hat to these lasses but this Brody Sparks female just gets that blood pumpin’! She got me sweatin’ like a hog on a hot summer’s day down on my ranch! Good show my lady!
MPFRA: At this time I will now explain the rules to you all. Please show the proper respect as you should to the other female members of your family.
(The crowd boos loudly as Empire’s morally progressive female ring announcer steps into the center of the ring. She gestures to both corners where on both sides a bucket is shown sitting on top of a large metal chest.)
MPFRA: First off… I would like to instruct Brody Sparks to check her privilege. She is entering into a match with an oppressed woman of Asian descent. In fact Haruna has been so oppressed that her treatment has become known as “the Haruna treatment”. We as a society have a responsibility to put an end to this unjust treatment. So now Brody I ask you… will you please acknowledge how much of a social advantage you have going into this match?
(Empire’s morally progressive female ring announcer holds the microphone up to Brody Sparks who just laughs.)
MPFRA: Well then… I guess we can’t have this match since it’s clear Brody intends to oppress…
SG1: WAIT FROM BEHIND!!!
Starr: BAH GAWD ALMIGHTY!
SG1: Cloud Matsuda from behind driving Brody’s spiked dildo into the skull of Empire’s morally progressive female ring announcer!
Starr: Now that is just uncalled for! Cloud needs to check her privilege!!
SG1: Finally we are free! Brody now kicking the announcer out of the ring as the referee calls for the bell!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Starr: We are underway here as Haruna Sakazaki shoves Brody and angrily points to Empire’s morally progressive female ring announcer lying outside the ring and bleeding. I can tell ya this woman would surely get a beatin’ back on the farm!
SG1: Haruna slaps Brody across the face! Haruna is not happy with the disrespect shown towards officials here tonight by Brody!!!
Starr: But Brody justs laughs! Again! Brody grabs Haruna by the hair as she wrestles her to the ground! Now this is the catfight I was waitin’ for! These girls got the sun in them! They have gone wild!
SG1: Cloud Matsuda steps in as she tries to break up Brody and Haruna who are rolling around on the mat trying to rip each others’ hair out. But Azumi Goto tackles Cloud to the ground! Now they are tearing at each other clawing at each other’s eyes as well!!
Starr: You may say it ain’t pretty! I’d say it’s beautiful! Oh lawd!
SG1: Brody and Haruna rolling out of the ring. Haruna on her feet now as she spears Haruna into the ring barrier! What impact! Brody screams as she grabs her back! Haruna just laughs as she whips Haruna back towards the ring… but Brody stops herself…
Starr: Haruna with one hell of a dropkick from the side! Haruna dropkicking Brody face first into a steel ring pole! Brody keels over onto the steel ring steps as Haruna charges in and bashes her head off the stairs! And again!!
SG1: NO! Brody resisting it as she elbows Haruna hard in the gut. Haruna falls back as Brody stalks after her up towards the entrance ramp. Brody charges in going low as she grabs the leg of Haruna taking her down. Haruna screams as Brody wrenches the ankle of Haruna twisting away at it hard!
Starr: Brody drags Haruna back down the aisle as Cloud and Azumi are now fighting it out in the ring. Cloud and Azumi are out here for the sole purpose of collecting blood in those buckets. However we should have known that all hell would have broken loose out here!!!
SG1: Cloud picks up Azumi and slams her down hard on the mat! Cloud now going into the corner as she picks up her bucket! Could Cloud be planning to collect some blood already here in this match?!?!?
Starr: No SG1 nobody is bleeding yet dumbass… Cloud setting the bucket down as she goes in to open Brody’s chest! Bah gawd almighty what could be locked inside there!!!
SG1: According to the very intricate rules of his match, each participant was allowed to put whatever they liked inside their chests. Anything could be inside!!!
Starr: Cloud opens up the chest… to reveal…
SG1: THUMBTACKS!!! That chest is filled with thousands of thumbtacks! Brody looking to puncture her opponent tonight and make her bleed out of every pore in her body!!!
Starr: Brody choking out Haruna outside the ring as Cloud grabs Azumi on the inside. Cloud going to force Azumi face first into the chest of thumbtacks!!!
SG1: Cloud getting savage here as Azumi struggles and tries to pull herself back from her fate… But Azumi can’t resist! Cloud kicks Azumi hard in the gut. Cloud picks Azumi up upside down…
Starr: SPECIAL DELIVERY CONNECTS!!!! CLOUD DEVASTATING AZUMI WITH THAT PACKAGE PILEDRIVER!!!!
SG1: Brody now tossing Haruna back into the ring. The Sanatorium Sisters have this match well in their control now as Cloud stomps away at Haruna the moment she re-enters the ring. Brody slithers back into the ring as well as she signals over to her chest.
Starr: Haruna looks groggy from being choked out as Brody and Cloud lift her up. THEY THROW HER HEAD FIRST INTO THE CHEST OF TACKS!!!
SG1: HARUNA’S SCREAMS CAN BE HEARD MUFFLED FROM INSIDE THE CHEST AS HER LEGS KICK! BUT BRODY AND CLOUD ARE HOLDING HER DOWN INSIDE THE CHEST! THEY ARE DROWNING HER IN THUMBTACKS!!!
Starr: BAH GAWD SG1! I CAN’T IMAGINE THE PAIN! EVERY TIME HARUNA OPENS HER MOUTH TO SCREAM IT MUST BE FILLED WITH THUMBTACKS! THUMBTACKS FALLING DOWN HER THROAT AND PIERCING INTO HER LUNGS!!!
SG1: WAIT AZUMI WITH A FOREARM SHOT FROM BEHIND TO BRODY!!! Azumi back up and making the save! Brody falls back and Cloud knocks Azumi back down with a hard right. Azumi back up now as she trades blows with Cloud!
Starr: Haruna finally pulls herself out of the thumbtacks… and she is covered with them! Her hair and face are completely pierced with tacks as she screams in agony! Haruna begins to pull the tacks out of her face… WAIT!
SG1: Brody Sparks grabs Haruna’s skull as she claws her face! Brody ripping the thumbtacks out in the most painful way possible! Brody notices blood on her hands as she grabs her bucket…
Starr: BUT HARUNA KICKS IT AWAY! Azumi tackles Cloud over the top rope with a running clothesline as both women fall to the outside! Haruna with a series of kicks to the legs of Brody as she drops Brody down to her knees.
SG1: And a spinning roundhouse kick to the side of Brody’s head by Haruna! Did you hear that thud Starr! Brody may be out cold from that strike!
Starr: Haruna now coughing up blood and thumbtacks as she stumbles and crawls over towards her corner and her chest… Wait she isn’t coughing at all… SHE’S LAUGHING!!!
SG1: Haruna has gone completely insane as she opens her chest… OH GOD WHAT THE HELL?!?!?
Starr: My god that smell what the hell is that?!?!?
SG1: Haruna opens her chest as murky water spills out. Haruna giggles as she puts on gloves and reaches into the chest…
Starr: Good god SG1! Haruna brought some of her freaky ass Japanese tentacle porn shit with her…
SG1: Haruna reaches in deep before pulling out…
Starr: BAH GAWD THOSE ARE LEECHES!!! HARUNA PULLING OUT A HANDFUL OF LEECHES!!! WHAT THE HELL!?!?!
SG1: HARUNA LAUGHS AS SHE WALKS OVER TO BRODY AND SHOVES A LEECH INTO HER TIGHTS!!! HARUNA ATTACHING THEM LEECHES ALL OVER BRODY’S BODY!!!
Starr: Brody is just coming to as she realizes what is going on. Haruna kicks her hard in the face as she falls back over… As Haruna attaches even more leeches to the face of Brody!!!! Brody is having her blood sucked out of her body by these fucking leeches!!
SG1: If that wasn’t enough insanity what the hell is going on outside the ring Starr?!?!? AZUMI HAS A FUCKING LADDER!!!
Starr: HOLY SHIT AZUMI CHARGING RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR COMMENTARY TABLE WITH A LADDER IMPALING THE FUCK OUT OF CLOUD!!! CLOUD SENT THROUGH THE BARRICADE INTO THE AUDIENCE WITH THAT LADDER SHOT!
SG1: All hell is breaking loose out here as Azumi stands up the ladder and jumps into the crowd to attack Cloud! Azumi beating the holy hell out of Cloud Matsuda here tonight with those fists!!!
Starr: I doubt this is the first time that Cloud has been fisted SG1!!! But look what’s going on in the ring! Haruna pulling out a switchblade!! NO HARUNA! THIS IS TOO FAR! YOU’RE GOING TO KILL HER!!!
SG1: The Sanatorium has gone so far in the past with bringing the pain to their opponents… It’s like tonight they finally decided to one up them on just how freaky they willing to go!
Starr: HARUNA WITH A PSYCHOTIC SMILE AS SHE GOES IN ON BRODY WITH THE SWITCHBLADE!!!
SG1: Wait… She’s not cutting her… SHE’S CUTTING INTO THE LEECHES!!!
Starr: Haruna puncturing the leeches as blood leaks out… Haruna grabs her bucket as she lets the blood slowly drip out of the leech into the bucket.
SG1: Haruna popping all those leeches and filling up her bucket! She needs to get two pints of blood. She’s quickly going to get that with how fat those leeches are getting!
Starr: Damn those things work fast. These must be some crazy ass Japanese breed of leeches that sucks all yo blood out in like five minutes or some shit!
SG1: That makes complete sense Starr and I will no longer question it because of how right you are.
Starr: Haruna filling up the bucket as Brody looks to be in trouble… COULD THIS BE THE END OF HER TITLE REIGN!!! BRODY LOSING FIRST HER BLOOD… THEN HER TITLE! IT’S ALL ABOUT TO END!!!
SG1: Wait I can’t see anything…
Starr: That’s because fucking Azumi and Cloud are in front of us SG1! Use your fucking monitor to see what’s happening in the ring!
SG1: I’m old fashioned Starr… I prefer squinting and relying on my eyes to get a clear picture of the action!
Starr: Well if you want action look no further than what’s going on right in front of us!!! Cloud just nailed Azumi in the skull with Azumi’s Control in the Vault briefcase!!! Azumi stumbling backwards as Cloud connects with a superkick out of nowhere!!!!
SG1: Azumi falling over right in front of us onto our commentary table as I need to get the hell out of here!
Starr: MOVE THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY WOMAN! LET A MAN THROUGH! FUCK THIS WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST BULLSHIT!!!
SG1: STARR WHAT THE FUCK!?!?! DID YOU JUST PUSH ME? GET THE FUCK BACK HERE YOU PIECE OF SHIT!!!
Starr: SCREW YOU SG1! I’M OUTTA HERE! AIN’T BOUT TO STICK AROUND NO MORE!!!
SG1: Wait Cloud is climbing up to the clouds… Cloud climbing up the ladder! I’m back on my feet now no thanks to Starr… But what the hell is Cloud thinking!!! Azumi rolls out of the way… Cloud possibly thinking of jumping off the ladder but Azumi back up…
Starr: Azumi now climbing up the ladder as she meets Cloud up on the top!!! Azumi and Cloud trading punches up on top of the ladder! This is a dangerous position for them to be in! Someone’s about to fall! Cloud losing her footing!!!
SG1: NO! Cloud held on somehow… AZUMI GRABS HER AND LIFTS HER UP IN THE AIR! HOLY SHIT AZUMI PULLING CLOUD OFF THE LADDER…
Starr: AKI TO OBERAMASU (idk the translation) OFF THE LADDER!!! AZUMI LEAPING OFF THE LADDER WITH A BRAINBUSTER CRASHING THROUGH OUR COMMENTARY TABLE! HOLY SHIT! SHE KILLED HER! SHE BROKE HER FUCKING NECK!!!
SG1: THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET HERE AS CLOUD AND AZUMI SURE AS HELL AIN’T! LET’S GET A REPLAY OF THAT SHIT OH LAWD!!!
(An instant replay is shown of Azumi Goto connecting with Aki to Oberamasu off the ladder and through the commentary table.)
Starr: GOD DAMN IT! SHE SPILLED MY FANTA!
SG1: Use the fucking monitors now Starr! How about you USE THE FUCKING MONITORS NOW!!!
Starr: Okay I will. I’m tired of these dirty Mexicans like TLA stealing our jobs. I’m taking over the Spanish commentary table.
SG1: Wait Starr we can’t do that…
Starr: What you expect me to stand for the rest of this match? Oh hell no.
Miguel: Solo estoy haciendo mi trabajo señor… Por favor… No quiero pelear contigo… ¡No me lastimes!
Starr: We are back now and living in style as it turns out Miguel also had a Fanta. It’s open but I plan to drink it anyway just as those leeches are drinking all the blood out of Brody Sparks!!!
SG1: That was a good segway Starr. I applaud you. As Miguel is being dragged away by Donald Trump supporters right here in Copenhagen Denmark! The action has all but ended in the ring. Fans are actually leaving the arena because of how little is happening.
Starr: Well leeches take time SG1… Haruna has literally just been sitting there draining the blood out of Brody for like ten minutes.
SG1: WAIT! IS SOMETHING ACTUALLY HAPPENING?!?!?! HOLY SHIT!!!
Starr: IT’S MADISON KALINE! MADDIE INTERFERING IN THIS MATCH AS SHE SLAMS DOWN BRODY’S SPIKED DILDO ACROSS THE THUMBTACK COVERED BACK OF HARUNA!!!
SG1: Maddie laying out Haruna as she goes to help Brody. Maddie grabs Haruna’s switchblade as she begins cutting the leeches off Brody!!! Maddie may have saved Brody’s life as well as her title!!!
Starr: Wait who is this…. IT’S JOCELYN DIEMOS!!! THE NEWEST MEMBER OF THE SANATORIUM HAS ARRIVED!!!
SG1: Jocelyn does not look happy as she pleads with Maddie to come backstage with her.
Jocelyn: Come on y’all… This ain’t right! We can’t just gang up on this poor girl! It’s just not fair!
Starr: Maddie does not look impressed… But wait Brody is regaining consciousness! Brody freed from the leeches at long last as she whispers up at her sisters.
Brody: GET THE FUCK OUT!
SG1: Well that was pretty clear orders from the EAW Specialists Champion as Jocelyn quickly ushers Maddie out of the ring and backstage. It looks like Brody wants to win this thing all by herself as Haruna has rolled out of the ring.
Starr: Haruna bleeding out of her back from where that barbed wire dildo made it’s impact. Haruna shoving EAW’s Russian commentator Aren Mt- Vladimir aside as she grabs a steel chair!!!
SG1: Good god Haruna do you really want to fuck with the Russians?
Starr: Haruna about to bring the Iron Curtain down on Brody with that iron chair!
SG1: I think it’s actually just a normal steel chair but still Brody may be in trouble! Haruna charges in with the steel chair to batter the hell out of Brody!!!!
Starr: BAH GAWD NO! BRODY COUNTERS THE STEEL CHAIR SHOT WITH THE BARBED WIRE DILDO! BRODY FIGHTING BACK UP TO HER FEET REPELLING SHOTS FROM THE CHAIR WITH LA DILDO! SHE IS THE ULTIMATE MAD WOMAN!!!
SG1: We got a sword duel of sorts going here now as Brody deflects all of Haruna’s chair shots with that massive purple spiked dildo. Both women bleeding here as Haruna has suffered those tacks and Brody has taken on those disgusting leeches.
Starr: Brody deflects another hard chair shot from Haruna! Wait Haruna dropped the chair!
SG1: BRODY LEVELS HARUNA WITH A DILDO SHOT TO THE FACE!
Starr: HARUNA’S SKULL IS BUSTED WIDE OPEN! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! BRODY MAY BE MAKING A COMEBACK HERE!!!
SG1: Brody laughing now as she drops the dildo and shoves a hand down deep into her tights!!!
Starr: THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET AS BRODY PULLS HARD DOWN INSIDE HER TIGHTS! WHAT IS SHE DOING?!?!?! THIS IS A PG SHOW!
SG1: Brody pulls her hand back out ripping out a massive leech! HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THE SIZE OF IT! IT MUST BE AT LEAST PACKING TWELVE INCHES!!!
Starr: BRODY NOW LICKING THE MASSIVE LEECH! THIS WOMAN IS TRULY PSYCHOTIC!
SG1: Brody laughs as she drops the leech and ends its life swiftly with the drop of her boot. Blood sprays everywhere across the ring as Haruna looks down and notices Haruna’s bucket filled with her blood.
Starr: Haruna must have collected at least a pint of blood from those leeches… Brody must be realizing just how close she came to losing her title… WAIT!!
SG1: BRODY JUST KICKED THE BUCKET!!!
Starr: BAH GAWD! BRODY KICKING THE BUCKET DIRECTLY INTO HARUNA’S FACE!
SG1: HOLY SHIT! BRODY’S BLOOD COVERING HARUNA’S ENTIRE BODY HERE AS HARUNA TRIES TO WIPE IT OUT OF HER EYES BUT HER HANDS ARE COVERED TOO!
Starr: Haruna tries to get up but she slips in the pool of blood and falls back down on her ass!!! Brody laughing now as she turns back towards her corner towards the chest of thumbtacks!!!
SG1: Brody reaching into the chest of tacks… What is she doing?!?!? Is there something else in there?!?!
Starr: BRODY PULLS OUT A HYPODERMIC NEEDLE! HOLY SHIT IT’S MASSIVE! IT MUST BE PACKING AT LEAST TWELVE INCHES!!!
SG1: Haruna shaking her head no as Brody slowly descends on her with the needle! BRODY GOES IN WITH THE NEEDLE AS SHE STABS HARUNA IN THE JUGULAR!!!
Starr: HARUNA SCREAMING IN PAIN NOW AS BRODY EXTRACTS BLOOD FROM HARUNA’S NECK!! THAT CHAMBER IS MASSIVE! BRODY TAKING ALL OF HARUNA’S BLOOD! SHE DEFINITELY HAS AT LEAST 2 PINTS IN THERE!!!
SG1: Haruna looks like she is fading from the massive blood loss as the crowd begins to chant for her.
Crowd: HARUNA! HARUNA! HARUNA!
Starr: The crowd on their feet here willing on the Japanese sensation and first ever EAW Specialist’s Champion to make some kind of comeback! But she has taken far too much punishment!
SG1: WAIT! HARUNA JUST SWATTED THE NEEDLE AWAY!
Starr: Brody looks appalled as the needle with Haruna’s blood in the syringe rolls slowly away from her. Haruna with a punch to Brody… but it has little effect… Haruna is simply too weak! Brody laughs as she pulls Haruna up in the corner…
SG1: WAIT HARUNA CHARGES OUT WITH THE LAPIS LAZULI!!! IT CONNECTS!!!
Starr: NO! BRODY SPARKS DUCKED THE JUMPING CORKSCREW ROUNDHOUSE KICK THAT HAS CLAIMED SO MANY OF HARUNA’S OPPONENTS!!! HARUNA TURNS AROUND…
SG1: BRODY PICKS UP HARUNA OVER HER HEAD… SEEING SPARKS CONNECTS!!
Starr: BAH GAWD SG1! THE DETONATION KICK COMPLETELY DETONATING ON HARUNA AS IF CARSON RAMSAY JUST COMMITTED A SUICIDE BOMBING IN THIS ARENA!!!
SG1: Haruna is completely out cold as Brody Sparks smiles and rolls slowly over to grab the syringe filled with Haruna’s blood. Brody grabs her bucket and as she slowly begins draining the blood into the bucket…
Starr: Brody laughing maniacally as she drains the syringe of blood into the bucket… Looks like Brody’s got enough of it… Wait… hold up…
SG1: SHE DIDN’T MAKE IT! BRODY JUST NEEDED A LITTLE MORE BLOOD TO GET TO 2 PINTS! SHE DIDN’T GET THE BUCKET FILLED!11
Starr: Brody desperately trying to squeeze every last bit of blood out of the syringe as she just can’t quite make it!! Brody looking pissed off… This match ain’t over yet!!!
SG1: Brody looks around the ring for Haruna as she crawls over to her and drags her over to the bucket. Brody grabs Haruna’s hair as she begins to wring it out into the bucket.
Starr: SHE DID IT! SHE’S GOT THE 2 PINTS! THIS MATCH IS OVER!!!
SG1: Wait hold up…
(DING! DING! DING!)
MPFRA: Here is your winner… and STILL EAW Specialists Champion of the World… BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRODY SPARKS!!! However, I feel it is my duty to announce the losers of this match. That would be the disgusting pigs on social media who I have seen making period jokes during this match since the bell rang. Please be ashamed of yourselves now.
(“RX Queen” by Deftones hits as Empire’s morally progressive female ring announcer takes the title from the male referee to personally present to Brody Sparks herself.)
Starr: BRODY SPARKS DID IT! BRODY SPARKS HAS BECOME THE WINNER OF THE FIRST EVER BLOOD BUCKET MATCH IN EAW HISTORY!! BAH GAWD ALMIGHTY!!!
SG1: Wait… I have a question tho… Did she really win?
Starr: WHAT DO YOU MEAN SG1? YOU HEARD THE MORALLY PROGRESSIVE FEMALE RING ANNOUNCER! OF COURSE SHE DID!!!
(The Sanatorium Sisters including Madison Kaline and Jocelyn Diemos come out to help Brody Sparks backstage as they celebrate the win. Medical officials come rushing out with stretchers as they look to extract out Azumi Goto and Cloud Matsuda from the wreckage at ringside.)
SG1: Well… the rules of the match stated that you had to put two pints of your opponent’s blood into the bucket to win… I’m not so sure that’s what actually happened…
Starr: What do you mean? She filled the bucket!
SG1: Yeah and most of that blood probably was Haruna’s… but remember earlier in the match Brody kicked the bucket of HER OWN blood into Haruna’s face… So Haruna was covered with Brody’s blood… So when she went to ring out Haruna’s hair into the bucket… How do we know that was actually Haruna’s blood? It could have easily been Brody’s!
Starr: Hmmm… I guess who gives a damn!!!
(SG1 gets up from the Spanish commentary table as she rolls into the ring to collect the bucket that Brody used to win as she walks backstage with it being careful not to spill any blood.)
Starr: Well it looks like SG1 has abandoned me just like every woman in my life. Bah gawd I am so depressed.
(Starr cries at the Spanish commentary table as the camera cuts to a commercial for The Bachelorette: EAW Edition starring La Diva! Tune in as La Diva turns down eligible bachelors who want to be her tag team partner on Empire show!)
(The camera pans to the backstage as Sebastian Monroe walks with his cell phone in his hand, texting on it, before he’s rushed up by Michael Belfort for what seems to be an interview as they are stopped outside his office door.)
Michael Belfort: Mr. Monroe, tonight, we are going to find out who will be heading to Dynasty as your EAW World Heavyweight Champion. Who is your favorite going into the match and what do you think the outcome will be?
Sebastian Monroe: Honestly, I’m hoping that The Heart Break Boy wins this match. There’s no secret that Jacob Senn and I aren’t fans of one another, especially due to his actions to take that championship away from my personal favorite elitist. Plus, HBB should be able to represent this brand with more class and higher standards than the current champion has been. I mean, have you seen the person he’s been hanging around?
Michael Belfort: Well, whoever wins from what I hear, will be coming to the first show of Dynasty in Japan! Is this true? Has Dynasty been scheduled to appear in Japan once again?
Sebastian Monroe: Wait… how did you get that information? WHO LEAKED THAT OUT? XAVIER?Great… thanks for ruining it. Yes, Dynasty will be going on tour after King of Elite in Japan and I would love for HBB to win that championship so that we can have a real champion be there for that Japan audience. Now if you excuse me, I have some preparations to make for that tour that you so rudely spoiled for everyone!
(Sebastian Monroe opens the door to his office… to find it completely trashed and destroyed as Monroe drops his phone with a dropped jaw in response.)
Sebastian Monroe: I don’t know who did this… but they will pay. THEY WILL PAY! I’m calling HRDO right now to find out the culprit and whoever it is, they will wish that they never got on the wrong side of Sebastian Monroe.
(Sebastian Monroe starts furious typing on his phone as Michael Belfort starts to say something, only for the door to be slammed in his face to keep him out, as both him and the cameraman make their exit.)
( Cut back to the arena… )
(DING! DING! DING)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL! And it is for the EAW Hall Of Fame Championship!
(“This Means War” by Avenged Sevenfold hits as the fans rise to their feet in anticipation of the arrival of the Hall Of Fame Champion. After some moments of waiting, Devan Dubian steps onto the stage and surveys the arena. He looks down at his Hall Of Fame Championship then calmly walks his way down the ramp and enters the ring. Devan climbs up onto one of the turnbuckles and raises his title high into the sky as the fans cheer on.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing FIRST! From Leicester, England, United Kingdom…weighing in at 230 pounds…He is the EAW Hall Of Fame Champion! AND BOYFRIEND OF THE WORLD’S MOST EFFICIENT WOMAN! “The Amazing Emir”…DEEEVAAAAAN DUUUUUUBIIIIIIAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pierre McGuire: Alright folks I hope you’re ready for an all out war between two very hungry men, because that’s what you’re about to get. This one won’t be pretty.
Cherish: No it won’t Pierre, with two of the, well I guess you would say younger veterans competing with the Hall Of Fame Title on the line!
Pierre McGuire: Now Cherish, if you’re the champion right now what exactly is going through your mind?
Cherish: How the hell did this nutjob out of all people earn this title shot?
(“Four Seasons Summer Presto” by Vivaldi plays as the camera pans over to the stage as Zack Crash walks out from the back. He looks on at his adversary in the ring with that crazed look in his eyes and then begins walking down the ramp. He slides into the ring and walks up to Devan. The referee steps between them as Crash points to Dubian and shouts “ERASE!”)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent! From Charleston, West Virginia…weighing in at 225 pounds…he is “Damaged”…ZAAAAAAAACK CRAAAAAAAAASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pierre McGuire: And here is the aforementioned “nutjob” as you put it Cherish.
Cherish: I don’t know what happened to Crash since he left Showdown, but I’d rather we not have to deal with him anymore with the way he is now.
Pierre McGuire: He’s come back to the show that shunned him away for one reason and one reason only, and that is to become the next EAW Hall Of Fame Champion! And he’s getting his shot right here right now.
Cherish: Well, Showdown’s own Devan Dubian has something to say about that, and if things end up the same as they did on Showdown last week, Devan and by virtue, Showdown will have the last laugh!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre McGuire: Okay everyone the bell has been rung (no shit) and the these two are ready to go just as all of us are! The EAW Hall Of Fame Championship matchup has now officially started and these two veterans immediately go in for a collar and elbow tie up! Dubian getting the upper hand in this test of strength as he catches Crash in a side headlock. The challenger shoving The Amazing One off. Devan bounces off the ropes as Zack Crash ducks down and The Champ continues moving, bouncing off the ropes for a second time. Crash now awaiting the oncoming Devan Dubian looks to grapple him, but Devan showing off his athleticism by leapfrogging over Crash! Zack turning around right into a dropkick from Dubian, right in the chin!
Cherish: That was a crisp dropkick from The defending champ as Crash is climbing back to his feet as Dubian begins to throw punches his way. But after a few blows Zack Crash catches one of Devan’s blows and delivers a hard kick to the gut! And then hits a punch of his own on The Young Fox! And now The Man of Broken Brilliance leaping and driving his knee down onto the temple of Devan. And then Crash begins delivering knee strikes to the midsection of the downed Devan Dubian. The referee being forced to step in and separate the two. And we can see Crash now is just ignoring the ref’s statements, the only thing on his warped mind is the Hall Of Fame Championship and the man keeping him from it. Crash goes down to lift up Dubian back to his feet BUT THE CHAMP OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A SMALL PACKAGE!
Pierre McGuire: OH MAN! THAT COULD HAVE BEEN A VERY ANTI CLIMACTIC ENDING TO THIS CONTEST RIGHT THEN AND THERE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Devan Dubian just nearly stole one basically from the get go. If Crash really does intend to leave tonight as the EAW Hall Of Fame Champion he is going to have to be more careful than that! And now Showdown’s Hall Of Fame Champion is back in control as Crash is getting up to meet him. The Shattered One is back up to a vertical base as Devan Dubian spins and clocks him with a Discus Elbow Smash! Crash staggers back now as Devan runs and rebounds off the ropes. And now he catches Zack with a swinging neckbreaker!
Cherish: NO! HE DOESN’T PIERRE! Crash shoves Dubian off of him and then grabs him from behind! Russian Leg Sweep! The Champ being slammed back first into the mat, having the wind knocked out of him. Crash now climbs over him and hooks the leg, shouting for the referee to hurry up and begin the count.
Cherish: Devan kicks out! Zack Crash just staring down at the Champion, I don’t like that look in his eyes! Dubian’s gonna have to get back up and fight now before Zack is able to grind him down!
Pierre McGuire: Crash now picking up Devan and wrapping his arms around his waist. He runs and rams The Champ back first into turnbuckle! You can see and hear the sheer amount of pain Devan Dubian is in after that one! And now Voltage’s number one contender just repeatedly driving his shoulder into the gut of our Hall Of Fame Champion! Softening up that midsection for who knows what? Zack is a very unpredictable man and is capable of doing a plethora of things. The one common trend among them is that they are no good for Devan here. Dub now trying to fight back here! Showing signs of life as he begins to club the back of Zack Crash to try and free himself! Crash steps back here…AND THEN SLAPS DEVAN DUBIAN! OH AND SHOWDOWN’S CHAMP FIRES BACK WITH A SOLID HEADBUT!
Cherish: Crash is back down and The Champion has created separation to regain his composure from that assault in the corner. Zack is climbing back to his feet as Dubian hits him with a European Uppercut! And another one! And Another One! ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER! HE GOES FOR A SIXTH! OH NO! ZACK CRASH CATCHES HIS ARM AND FOREARM SMASHES HIM RIGHT IN THE NOSE! AND NOW CRASH GRABS HIM! SIDE EFFECT! CRASH FOR HIS SECOND PIN ATTEMPT OF THE NIGHT THUS FAR!
Pierre McGuire: Zack Crash just can’t seem to break past the two count range at this point! Now we all are very aware of the fact that the Hall Of Fame Champion is an incredibly tenacious and durable man, but I for one am afraid of what kind of twisted things Zack Crash might think of doing to Devan as this match continues and his anger continues to build up from not securing the victory sooner! And now The Damaged One lifting up Dubian and hooking his arm into what looks to be a Suplex Clutch. Crash now hoists him up into the air, but Devan floats over and lands flat on his feet! What an incredible display of balance there from him! And now Devan with a kick to the stomach of his challenger!
Cherish: Dub shoves Crash out of the ring onto the apron, but pulls him back in hanging from the middle rope. We know what this is the setup for! Rope Hung DDT Incoming! NO WAIT! Crash frees himself and sets his feet back inside of the ring. And then he back body drops Devan Dubian outside onto that apron! His back has to be in such pain! I don’t envy his position whatsoever right now! Or ever really at this rate seeing as who his opponent is tonight. Either way now Zack Crash can afford to take a moment to catch his breath in the ring, just as long as he doesn’t for too long, because Dubian can slither his way back into the driver’s seat at a moment’s notice here.
Pierre McGuire: Indeed Cherish! Crash seems to be heeding those words because he’s walking over to the apron right now. But not so fast! Dub grabs him and pulls him over! Now both men are out on the apron in the precarious position! One wrong step and one of if not both of them could be seriously hurt for much longer than just this contest! And now Zack Crash goes for a right hand, but Devan ducks and kicks him in the gut! SNAP DDT ON THE APRON! DEVAN GOT THE DDT AFTER ALL, NOT QUITE THE ONE HE WAS LOOKING FOR THOUGH! BUT THEN AGAIN I SUPPOSE IT ENDED UP BEING EVEN MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE ONE HE ORIGINALLY PLANNED OUT!
Cherish: I guess it was out of desperation at this rate because Devan seems to be gasping for air on the outside as Crash is down and seemingly out! The referee trying to talk to both men, I assume ordering Dub to get up and toss Crash back in the ring before reentering himself. Unfortunately The Champ just doesn’t have it in him to make that happen. So it looks the the ref is going to begin the ten count. For the match to continue on both men must reenter the ring by the ten count or this match is ending in a countout or maybe even a double countout. Devan is picking himself up using the barricade as a support, meanwhile Crash is still out leaning back against the apron in a seated position. The Amazing One now walks over to his challenger and lifts him up by his hair. And now he slams Crash face first into the apron!
Pierre McGuire: Dubian with another face smash into that apron! Looking for a third, but Crash showing signs of life once more. Delivers an elbow to the stomach and then irish whips him right into the metal post! Devan’s head just smacked against that post and then he fell like a sack of bricks! The Man of Broken Brilliance now stomping away at his adversary, the Hall Of Fame Champion. He now grabs Dubian and smashes his face into our announce table! Watch out Cherish!
Cherish: I actually agree with you Pierre. Plus Crash better recognize that the ref’s count is getting rather close to ten! If he hopes to leave here with the championship then he’s going to have to finish things inside of the ring!
Cherish: And Crash tosses Dubian into the ring before sliding in himself and now he’s just stalking the champion with those crazed eyes of his. Whatever Crash is about to do to Showdown’s Hall Of Fame Champ, I don’t like it!
Pierre McGuire: Devan amazingly able to still pull himself together! At this moment he’s hunched over as Crash rushes in and knees him in the side of the head, and then quickly neckbreakers him! Driving the back of his head right into the canvas! That’s the Reality Check, and Crash is gonna look to capture Hall Of Fame gold off of it!
Pierre McGuire: NOT QUITE ENOUGH! DEVAN POWERING OUT THERE! HOW DUBIAN DID IT I COULDN’T TELL YOU, BUT HE DID!
Cherish: It all comes down to pure veteran instincts at this point, both men have them. That would explain all the back and forth action here. But Now Crash looks seriously ready to finish things off. This is the part where he goes for either The Crash Course or The Damage Control. And after what Dub just took, I don’t think he could handle either of those moves right after! And now Crash lifting up the limp and lifeless Devan Dubian, he can really take his time and pick out whatever he pleases to do to BLEEDING EDGE!
Pierre McGuire: DEVAN DUBIAN SNAPPING BACK TO LIFE FOR A SPLIT SECOND TO HIT A BLEEDING EDGE! THAT JUMPING CUTTER IS TYPICALLY THE EXCLAMATION POINT TO THINGS FOR A DEVAN DUBIAN MATCH! WILL TONIGHT FOLLOW WITH THAT TREND?!
Cherish: ZACK CRASH KICKS OUT!
Pierre McGuire: THE KICKOUT BY ZACK CRASH AND I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! CHERISH CAN’T BELIEVE IT! NONE OF THESE FANS CAN BELIEVE IT EITHER! AND I’M SURE DEVAN DUBIAN CAN’T BELIEVE IT!
Cherish: Devan Dubian going to go pick up Zack Crash. I’m sure at this rate these two men could blow on each other and the match would end. Crash shoves Dub away and he bumps into the referee! THE REF IS DOWN! AND NOW CRASH GETTING UP AND RAKING THE EYES OF DEVAN DUBIAN! DON’T TELL ME THIS IS HAPPENING! NOT LIKE THIS CRASH! COME ON!
Pierre McGuire: Oh man it’s over here. Zack Crash is poised to become the new EAW Hall Of Fame Champion!
Cherish: He’s gonna take the gold here and now and Devan doesn’t even know it! Crash grabs him from behind…DAMAGE CONTROL! THE LUMBAR CHECK!
Pierre McGuire: NO HOLD ON! DEVAN DUBIAN FLIPPED BEHIND CRASH WHEN HE HOOKED HIM IN THAT BACK SUPLEX POSITION! CRASH TURNS AROUND AND BLEEDING EDGE! THAT’S THE SECOND ONE OF THIS MATCHUP! THE JUMPING CUTTER PULLED OUT OF THIN AIR AS IT USUALLY SEEMS TO BE! DEVAN DUBIAN FALLS ONTO HIS SEEMINGLY LIFELESS CHALLENGER FOR THE COVER NOW!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ring Announcer: Ladies And Gentlemen…here is your winner AND STIIIIIIIIIIIILL EAW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION! DEEEEEEVAAAAAAAAN DUUUUUUUUBIIIIIIIAAAAAAAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“This Means War” by Avenged Sevenfold once again blasts throughout the arena as the fans are cheering wildly in support of The Amazing One. Devan picks himself up utilizing the ring ropes for support then turns around to see the referee handing him his Hall Of Fame Title. The Young Fox takes the belt and climbs up the turnbuckle raising it high into the sky as the fans once again rejoice in his successful defense.)
Pierre McGuire: What a showcase we just saw between both of these two seasoned vets! Zack Crash gave it his absolute all and almost stole away the Hall Of Fame Title from Showdown, but Devan Dubian prevails at the very last second in a fashion that none of us could possibly comprehend, just how does he pull of those comebacks?!
Cherish: They both were members of this last year’s Hall Of Fame class and now we saw the both of them wage war over the Hall Of Fame title itself.
Pierre McGuire: Who’ll we see oppose Devan Dubian next? Will He set his sights on becoming Answers World Champion as well instead? What will Zack Crash go on to do on Voltage?
Cherish: No matter what, this match was certainly a fun detour for both men to take as they go through their first year here in the land of the elites as bonafide Hall Of Famers!
( Commercial break )
(Camera transitions back to the ring)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, this next match is scheduled for ONE FALL!
(“Lydia” – Highly Suspect hits as Xavier Williams slowly makes his way through the curtain to a THUNDEROUS mixed ovation. He stands on the stage and takes a look out to the thousands in attendance before beginning to make his way down to the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in tonight AT 259 POUNDS!!… HE IS… XAAAAAAAAAVVVIIIEEEEERRRR WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLIIAAAAMMSSSSS!!!!!!!!
Stew: A man that spent four months on the sideline after a vicious attack at the hands on Jamie O’Hara, making his return at Road to Redemption with his sights completely set on the man he faced at Pain for Pride seven months ago, Methuselah. Xavier gave his reasoning behind his actions; he felt like Methuselah was a downgrade from the man that walked into Pain for Pride and wants to “erase one of the few wrongs of his career”. But, quickly things got EXTREMELY personal between the two.
Mercer: I don’t think many people are surprised that it did, Stew. We both know these men well and the lengths they’re willing to go to get a step ahead from any other. Methuselah attempted to sacrifice this man’s daughter and in return, Xavier Williams BRUTALLY DESTROYED Methuselah’s niece Veena Adams, in one of the more disturbing things that I’ve seen in my time in this business. Things are going to kick off big in a few moments and I’ll warn all of the family watching at home… this may be the time that you put your children to bed. This one is not going to be pretty.
(Xavier enters the ring, making his way across the ring and takes a seat in the corner as “Lydia” slowly fades out.)
“I SHOOT THE LIGHTS OUT…”
“HIDE TIL’ IT’S BRIGHT OUT…”
“WOAH, JUST ANOTHER LONELY NIGHT…”
“ARE YOU WILLING TO SACRIFICE YA LIFE…”
(“Monster” – Kanye West hits as smoke billows from the stage to almost completely enshroud it in smoke. Soon after, Soothsayer Hamasa walks through the smoke holding up a staff with the Evil Eye symbol shining through the dark arena. Soon after that, Methuselah walks through the smoke dressing in his ring gear ready for battle; his eyes completely locked on the Xavier who still sits back against the turnbuckles with the hint of a smile across his face.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, first accompanied to the ring by Soothsayer Hamasa, from The Solitary Candle in the Village of Ormen, weighing in tonight at 16 AND A HALF STONE!! HE IS “THE MONSTER”!! THE “THANE OF EAW”!! HE IS…. MEEEEEEEETTTTTTHHHUUUUUUUSEEEEEEELLLAAAAAAAHH!!!!!
Stew: You take two combustible elements like these two men and things are bound to explode. You can see in the eyes of Methuselah of what his mindset is. He’s in the place that he’s most comfortable – the man is completely unhinged. This man was the victor of this contest so he knows that he’s going to need to do to put him away. This is the fourth time that Xavier Williams and Methuselah or DEDEDE have been in the ring against each other. The first was a tag match between the Savage Ryans against Xavier and Brian Daniels, in which Xavier scored the deciding fall over Methuselah’s former partner, Ryan Savage. The second was inside the first War Games where Xavier won the man for Team Crash, and the third was obviously a few months ago at Pain for Pride in which DEDEDE was victorious.
Mercer: I’ll guarantee you that it’s something that Xavier’s thought about. The man has never successfully been able to keep him down. He was SO close at Pain for Pride falling inches short in what the greatest opener to a FPV that I have ever seen. That’s the big question, Stew; what will Xavier Williams need to do keep Methuselah down? CAN Xavier Williams keep Methuselah down? Many men have tried, and many men have failed – but can the man sitting in the ring do what so many couldn’t?
(Methuselah enters the ring as Xavier shoots back up to his feet and the two men come nose to nose; the referee quickly getting between the two as the both slowly make their way back into their respective corners.)
Mercer: Everything has reached its boiling point.
(Methuselah takes off his trenchcoat and hands it to Hamasa as Xavier looks over to his daughter who sits in the front row.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Mercer: The bell rings and this war finally begins. This one isn’t going to be for the light-hearted, ladies and gentlemen. Both men making their way back to the middle of the ring, coming nose to nose once more. You can see in the eyes of both men how focused they are. Xavier Williams wanted this match, and while it may not be on a stage as grand as Pain for Pride, this match means more to the man than any other. I would have see to what would happen to the man’s psyche if he were to lose here tonight. Both men exchanging words and I’ll guarantee you that they’re not too pretty in the slightest. These two combustible elements are bound to explode at any moment – and Xavier Williams just SPITS in the face of Methuselah. METHUSELAH IMMEDIATELY FIRES WITH A HARD OPEN HANDED SLAP TO THE FACE OF XAVIER WILLIAMS! HE SLAPPED THE TASTE OUT OF THE MAN’S MOUTH! Xavier fires with a wild right, but Methuselah ducks underneath and fires back with a standing bicycle kick! Xavier stumbles back into the ropes as Methuselah looks to waste little time, hitting the ropes AND BURST BACK – RAPTURE!! YAKUZA KICK CONNECTS FLUSH ON THE JAW OF XAVIER WILLIAMS, SENDING HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE! Xavier stumbles back to his feet as Methuselah continues to move at a million miles an hour AND FLIES OVER THE TOP ROPE, TAKING OUT XAVIER WITH THAT TOPE CON HILO! VINTAGE METHUSELAH!
ONE!!… TWO!!… THREE!!…FOUR!!…
Stew: Methuselah shooting back up to his feet as Xavier pushes himself up to his hands and knees, shaking his head trying to shake out the cobwebs. Methuselah drags Xavier back up to his feet AND LOOKS TO LAUNCH HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE – BUT XAVIER TURNS IT AROUND! NO, METHUSELAH STOPS HIMSELF, SLIDING ACROSS THAT THIN PADDING THAT COVERS THE CONCRETE FLOORING AS XAVIER TRIES TO REGAIN HIS BEARINGS! Methuselah shoots back up to his feet AND CHARGES BACK! SPEAR — SUPERKICK! A SUPERKICK CONNECTS FLUSH ON THE JAW OF METHUSELAH! Xavier doesn’t allow Meth to fall backwards, instead pulls him in! NO! XAVIER’S LOOKING TO DO TO METHUSELAH WHAT HE DID TO VEENA A FEW WEEKS AGO! XAVIER POWERING METHUSELAH UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, BUT METHUSELAH IMMEDIATELY BEGINS TO FIGHT BACK WITH CLOSED FISTED SHOTS TO THE TOP OF THE FOREHEAD! Methuselah’s able to slip off the shoulders of Xavier and transition behind the man. Methuselah locks the waist and looks to send Xavier back overhead with a German Suplex , but Xavier uses the leg to block AND CONNECTS WITH A BRUTAL ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!
FIVE!!… SIX!!… SEVEN!!… EIGHT!!….
Mercer: Xavier’s able to complete the standing switch and powers Methuselah up for a back suplex! Methuselah grabs onto the ropes and twists himself onto the apron and out of the grasp of Xavier Williams; Xavier looks to give Methuselah as little room as possible – BUT TURNS STRAIGHT INTO A WICKED KICK TO THE HEAD FROM METHUSELAH! Xavier’s stunned as he drops down to a knee and Methuselah pulls himself back up to his feet still on the apron! Xavier getting back to his feet AND THE MOMENT THAT HE DOES, METHUSELAH LEAPS OFF OF THE APRON AND DRIVES BOTH FEET INTO THE CHEST TAKING XAVIER WILLIAMS DOWN WITH A DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP!
Stew: Methuselah shooting back to his feet and breaks the referee’s count; you’d hate to see it end that early like that.
Stew: Xavier’s taking in those deep breaths, all of the air being driven out of the lungs by that Double Footstomp. Methuselah lifts Xavier back to his feet and rolls him back into the ring, but keeps a hold of the right arm. Methuselah drags him facedown back onto the apron and makes his way up. Xavier trying to push his way back up to his hands and knees – METHUSELAH LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND DRIVES HIS KNEE INTO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND NECK WITH THE KNEE DROP! The arms of Xavier buckle and he drops back down to the apron, but Methuselah doesn’t look finished AND IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A RUNNING KNEELIFT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! A stunned Xavier Williams falls back out onto that thin padding that cover that unforgiving concrete flooring as Methuselah looks at Hamasa who nods her head in approval. Xavier grabs the apron to drag himself back up, but Methuselah’s there to power him back up and rolls him into the ring. This has been all Methuselah in the beginning moments of this contest; Xavier needs to try to find a way to fight back. Xavier rolls over into the corner, trying to gain some form of breathing room, and by the looks of things, Methuselah seems content of allowing Xavier to drag himself back up as he stalks. Xavier pushes himself back to his feet using those turnbuckles, but the moment he does, Methuselah meets him with a running forearm that connects flush!
Mercer: Xavier stumbles out of the corner as Methuselah hits the ropes – and rebounds with a Bicycle Kick! Xavier ducks underneath and locks the waist of Methuselah AND SENDS HIM FLYING OVERHEAD WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! METHUSELAH DROPPED ON THE BACK OF HIS NECK! It doesn’t keeps Methuselah down for long, but Xavier isn’t too far behind him! Methuselah swings for a wild roundhouse kick, but Xavier ducks underneath and traps Methuselah again! DRAGON SUPLEX! METHUSELAH SPIKED ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD AGAIN AS THE MOMENTUM SENDS HIM INTO THE CORNER! Xavier shoots back to his feet as Methuselah tries to drag himself back up – AND THE MOMENT HE DOES XAVIER CRUSHES HIM INTO THE CORNER WITH A BODY AVALANCHE c! METHUSELAH DROPS BACK DOWN AS XAVIER CONTINUES TO MOVE AT A MILLION MILES AN HOUR – CANNONBALL INTO THE CORNER! XAVIER GAVE HIMSELF AN INCH AND IS TURNING IT INTO A MILE! Xavier rolls away as Methuselah sits there in a daze; Xavier gets back to his feet as Methuselah reaches up to the top rope and forces himself back up, but Xavier meets him with a STIFF chop to the chest! Xavier takes a few steps back as Methuselah stumbles back before firing away with another! The brute force dropping Methuselah down to the canvas. Xavier immediately calls Methuselah back up, which Methuselah defiantly begins to do. Methuselah gets to back to a vertical base and Xavier drives in the knee straight into the midsection before pulling him in – and drops him stomach first across the top rope with the front suplex! Methuselah rebounds and plummets back down to the canvas!
Stew: Xavier wants to break down Methuselah slowly and it seems that he’s starting to do so. Methuselah forces himself to sit back up, but Xavier immediately drives his boot and shin into the chest with a vicious Penalty Kick! Methuselah goes back down AND XAVIER FOLLOWS STRAIGHT WITH A RUNNING SENTON! Xavier just sitting there as he turns his head towards Hamasa and the hint of a smile crosses his face – BUT METHUSELAH WITH THE CRUCIFIX!
ONE!! TWO!! KICKOUT!!
Stew: ONE LAPSE OF CONCENTRATION ALMOST COST XAVIER AS BOTH SCRAMBLE BACK TO THEIR FEET! Xavier’s the first up and charges forward – BUT METHUSELAH SWEEPS HIM UP AND DRIVES HIM DOWN WITH A MICHINOKU DRIVER! THAT – THAT IS HOW QUICK METHUSELAH CAN CUT YOU DOWN! THAT WAS A NASTY LANDING FOR XAVIER, DROPPED ALMOST ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! But, Methuselah doesn’t go for the cover, instead opting to roll under the bottom rope and begins to make his way up top. A stunned Xavier pushes himself up as Methuselah steadies himself up top – MISSILE DROPKICK! METHUSELAH FLYING THROUGH THE AIR AND CONNECTS WITH THE MISSILE DROPKICK! Xavier’s sent rolling under the bottom rope and to the outside, but quickly stumbles back up to his feet as Methuselah hits the ropes and begins to pick up speed – AND METHUSELAH SHOOTS THROUGH THE ROPES – HEAT! SEEKING! SPEAR! WHAT AN UPPERCUT! METHUSELAH WAS CUT OFF BY A WICKED EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! METHUSELAH’S CAUGHT UP IN THE ROPES AS XAVIER RUSHES UP ONTO THE APRON AND CONNECTS FLUSH WITH A SIDE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! METHUSELAH FALLS BACK IN A HEAP IN THE RING AS XAVIER WILLIAMS MAKES HIS WAY UP TOP! XAVIER’S LOOKING TO FLY! SWANTON BOMB! XAVIER BRINGS ALL OF THAT TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY NINE POUND FRAME ACROSS THE CHEST OF METHUSELAH WITH A HUGE SWANTON BOMB! XAVIER WILLIAMS HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
ONEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!! KICKOUT!!
Stew: METHUSELAH POWERS OUT AFTER TWO!
Mercer: Xavier gritting his teeth as his eyes shoot towards the referee; Xavier needs to maintain control, he can’t give Methuselah the chance to recover – and that looks to be what Xavier’s looking to do! Xavier stalks as he allows Methuselah exert more energy by dragging himself back up. Methuselah gets back to a knee as Xavier grabs a handful of his hair AND LAUNCHES HIM INTO THE ROPES! END OF THE WORLD! NO, METHUSELAH USES THE MOMENTUM TO POP OVER THE SHOULDERS OF XAVIER AND FIRES BACK WITH A SPINNING BACK KICK, AND THEN A VICIOUS KICK TO THE FACE AND CHEST! SPINNING BACKFIST! STANDING BICYCLE KICK! UNRELENTING STRIKES FROM METHUSELAH AS XAVIER FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES, REBOUNDING BACK AND UP ONTO THE SHOULDERS OF METHUSELAH – FIREMAN’S CARRY NECKBREAKER! BUT, XAVIER ISN’T DOWN FOR LONG AND SWINGS FOR A WILD CLOTHESLINE – BUT METHUSELAH DUCKS UNDERNEATH, LOCKS THE WAIST AND SENDS XAVIER OVERHEAD WITH A SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX! AND AGAIN, XAVIER REFUSES TO STAY DOWN, BUT HE’S VISIBLY STUNNED! METHUSELAH WITH A KICK TO THE STOMACH AND PULLS HIM IN! XAVIER TRYING TO FIGHT HIS WAY OUT OF IT, BUT METHUSELAH POWERS HIM UP INTO THE AIR – METH DRIVER! FALCON ARROW TO XAVIER WILLIAMS! METHUSELAH SHOOTS THE HALF!
ONEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOO!! KICKOUT!!
Stew: XAVIER KICKS OUT, BUT METHUSELAH IMMEDIATELY TRANSITIONS INTO THE CROSS ARMBREAKER! WE SAW XAVIER USE THIS BEFORE HIS INJURY AND NOW HE’S DEALT THE SAME FATE! METHUSELAH TRYING TO HYPEREXTEND THE ELBOW, BUT XAVIER’S ABLE TO LOCK HIS HANDS! METHUSELAH TRYING TO BREAK THE GRIP, BUT XAVIER’S ABLE TO TWIST HIMSELF BACK GET BACK TO HIS FEET – AND METHUSELAH TRANSITIONS INTO A TRIANGLE CHOKE! METHUSELAH’S TRYING TO CUT OFF THE BLOOD TO THE BRAIN, BUT XAVIER POWERS HIM UP AND DRIVES HIM BACK DOWN! Xavier’s manages the break free – WAIT, METHUSELAH GRABS HIM AND LOCKS IT BACK IN AND BEGINS TO DRIVE THE ELBOW INTO THE TOP OF THE HEAD, BUT XAVIER POWERS HIM BACK UP AND DRIVES HIM BACK DOWN AGAIN! THE HOLD IS BROKEN AGAIN, BUT XAVIER DOESN’T RELENT! XAVIER POWERING METHUSELAH BACK UP – AND LAUNCHES HIM INTO THE CORNER WITH A TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB! METHUSELAH DOESN’T GO DOWN, BUT STUMBLES STRAIGHT BACK INTO THE HANDS OF XAVIER! XAVIER PULLS HIM IN AND POWERS HIM UP! PUMPHANDLE NECKBREAKER! Xavier has the chance to cover, but decides against it. Xavier makes his way onto the apron and takes a look at his daughter who cheers him on before heading up to the top rope.
Mercer: Methuselah’s there to meet him though; that momentary distraction gave Methuselah enough time to recover. Methuselah with a headbutt, and follows with a stiff right hand. Xavier rocks back, but forces him back up and fires back with a headbutt of his own! That rocked Methuselah, who latches onto the top rope! Methuselah with a forearm, but Xavier with another headbutt! Xavier slips back down to the canvas and looks to carry Methuselah back out to the middle of the ring, but Meth still has a hold of the top rope! Xavier forced to think of his feet as Methuselah pulls his way back into the corner and the middle rope; Xavier grabs the arm of Methuselah down and traps the back of his head against the top turnbuckle! WHAT A SUPERKICK! THE HEAD OF METHUSELAH CRUSHED BETWEEN BOOT AND TURNBUCKLE! Methuselah falls back in a heap, but Xavier catches him AND POWERS HIM HIGH INTO THE AIR! MORNINGSTAR! HIGH ANGLE REVERSE DDT! THE IMPACT FOLDING METHUSELAH IN HALF! XAVIER HOOKS THE BOTH LEGS, COULD THIS BE IT? COULD XAVIER WILLIAMS BE ABOUT TO BEAT METHUSELAH?
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREE-KICKOUT!!
Stew: NO! NO! IT’S STILL NOT ENOUGH! XAVIER’S ALMOST PULLING HIS HAIR OUT AS METHUSELAH LAYS THERE! IT EVEN LOOKS LIKE HAMASA WAS ON THE EDGE THERE! COULD XAVIER BE BEGINNING TO BREAK THROUGH? HOW MANY MORE BIG MOVES CAN METHUSELAH WITHSTAND? Xavier gets back to his feet; what’s going through the man’s mind at the moment. That Morningstar has brought Xavier success in the past, but tonight it wasn’t enough. Xavier just mounting Methuselah and begins to fire away with those closed fisted shots; the referee trying to pull Xavier away, but Xavier refuses to relent! Frustration starting to set in, but Xavier can’t allow himself to lose control. He needs to stay focused. The referee begins to count as Xavier continues to rain down those hard strikes.
ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Stew: Xavier finally stops a second before disqualification – look at Methuselah! The man’s laughing! I never would have thought I would see the man in that position laughing, Jake.
Mercer: I think that Methuselah knows that Xavier’s starting to feel the pressure. There’s a reason to why Methuselah is one of the more respected names in the business. It’s his ability to take so much punishment and still find a way to continue. The man’s definitely feeling it and right now, I think the man’s doing nothing more than playing with the mind of Xavier Williams – and think that it worked! Xavier powering Methuselah back to his feet and launches Methuselah back into the corner! Methuselah turns it around! Methuselah fires at the chest with a hard chop, but Xavier grabs him in throws him into the corner before firing with a chop of his own! Methuselah brushes it off and throws Xavier back into the corner – AND BEGINS TO FIRE AWAY WITH THOSE BOXING LIKE STRIKES! XAVIER TRYING TO COVER UP, BUT THOSE STRIKES SEEM TO BE BREAKING THROUGH THE GUARD OF THE MAN! XAVIER STARTS TO FIRE BACK WITH SHOTS OF HIS OWN! BOTH MEN SLUGGING IT OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! XAV! METH! XAV! METH! XAV! METH! XAV! METH! METHUSELAH DUCKS AND CONNECTS WITH A JUMPING KNEE! XAVIER FIRES BACK WITH A SUPERKICK! THE IMPACT SWINGS METHUSELAH AROUND – BUT METHUSELAH LEAPS BACK AND CONNECTS WITH THE SWINGING ENZIGURI! XAVIER FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES – AND REBOUNDS WITH A DEVASTATING LARIAT! METHUSELAH WAS TURNED INSIDE OUT! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN! WHAT A SEQUENCE!
Stew: You have the think that the first man back to their feet will be in the driver’s seat. These two men have punished each other; this is their will to win! This is their will to succeed! This is everything that has brought them this far! Xavier slowly sitting up as Methuselah crawls over to the ropes. Xavier pushes himself back to a knee as Methuselah drags himself back up; both men are spent. Methuselah’s the first back to his feet, but Xavier’s not too far behind. Methuselah knows he only has seconds to capitalise as Xavier gets back to his feet and stumbles back into the corner! RAPTURE! HELLUVA KICK CONNECTS FLUSH! XAVIER GRABBING ONTO THAT TOP ROPE, REFUSING TO GO DOWN AS METHUSELAH CHARGES ACROSS THE RING, HITTING THE OPPOSITE CORNER AND BURST’S BACK! ANOTHER RAPTURE! NO! NO! END OF THE WORLD! POP UP POWERBOMB! METHUSELAH POPS OVER THE HEAD OF XAVIER AND LANDS ON THE MIDDLE ROPE! METHUSELAH LEAPS BACK FOR THE TORNADO DDT, BUT XAVIER CATCHES HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS IN THAT FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION! BUT – LOOK- LOOK AT HAMASA! SHE THROWS UP THAT AMULET AND IT FULLY DISPLAYS THAT EVIL EYE AS METHUSELAH SLIPS OFF THE SHOULDERS AND BEHIND XAVIER! KRISHNA LOCK! KRISHNA LOCK! KATAHAJIME! METHUSELAH LOCKS IN THAT GRAPEVINE, FORCING XAVIER TO BARE HIS FULL WEIGHT AS HE TRIES TO SURVIVE! ALL THE BLOOD FLOW TO THE BRAIN IS BEING CUT OFF AND UNLESS XAVIER MANAGES TO FIND A WAY OUT, THIS ONE IS MOMENTS FROM BEING OVER! METHUSELAH HAS IT LOCKED IN TIGHT! THERE’S NOWHERE TO GO! THOSE ROPES ARE A MILLION MILES AWAY AT THIS POINT AS XAVIER DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE! COULD YOU IMAGINE IF XAVIER WAS CHOKED OUT IN FRONT OF HIS DAUGHTER!
Mercer: HAMASA STILL HOLDS THAT AMULET HIGH AS METHUSELAH TIGHTENS THE GRIP! XAVIER – WAIT A MINUTE! XAVIER SHOOTS BACK TO HIS FEET AND LAUNCHES HIMSELF INTO THE CORNER WITH THE CANNONBALL! METHUSELAH’S SPINE CRUSHED INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AND BREAKS THE HOLD! XAVIER FOUND ONE HELL OF A WAY OUT OF THE KRISHNA LOCK! HAMASA LOOKS TO BE IN COMPLETE SHOCK, AS DOES METHUSELAH! XAVIER REFUSES TO STAY DOWN! XAVIER REFUSES TO GIVE UP! LIKE WE SAID; THIS IS THE FIGHT THAT XAVIER WANTED AND THE MAN MAY NOT STAY DOWN UNTIL BLOOD STILL PUMPS THROUGH HIS VEINS! XAVIER’S BACK UP AS METHUSELAH CLUTCHES AT THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! METHUSELAH’S STUMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET! SUPERKICK! XAVIER DOESN’T LET HIM FALL BACK! XAVIER GRABS METHUSELAH BY THE HEAD AND DRIVES HIS KNEE STRAIGHT INTO THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE! YOU CAN FEEL THIS MATCH SLIPPING OUT OF THE GRASP OF METHUSELAH! XAVIER WITH ANOTHER KNEE! METHUSELAH’S OUT ON A KNEE! XAVIER LIFTS METHUSELAH BACK UP AND TOSSES HIM INTO THE ROPES! OH MY GOD! END OF THE WORLD! END OF THE WORLD! THIS TIME IT CONNECTS! METHUSELAH WAS ALMOST BROKEN IN HALF BY THAT POP UP POWERBOMB! YOU NEED TO PIN HIM, XAVIER! REDEEM YOURSELF FOR PAIN FOR PRIDE!
Stew: XAVIER ISN’T SATISFIED, JAKE! XAVIER’S EYES SHOOT STRAIGHT TOWARDS HAMASA AS THAT VILE SMILE RETURNS TO HIS FACE! XAVIER POWERS METHUSELAH BACK UP TO HIS FEET – WAIT – OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! LOOK AT HAMASA! HAMASA GRABS XAVIER’S DAUGHTER WHO SITS RINGSIDE! SHE’S TERRIFIED! XAVIER’S LETS GO OF METHUSELAH AND SHOOTS OUT OF THE RING AS HAMASA THREATENS HIM! HAMASA HOLDS HIS DAUGHTER – COWARD! XAVIER’S BROKEN, HE HAS TO FEEL UTTERLY HELPLESS! HE CAN’T DO ANYTHING WITHOUT HURTING HIS DAUGHTER! WAIT – LOOK! MCKENZIE BITES THE FINGERS OF HAMASA AND SLIPS OUT OF HER GRASP! YES! YES! HAMASA CLUTCHES AT HER HAND AS SHE TRIES TO FLEE, BUT XAVIER CATCHES HER! HAMASA SCREAMS AS XAVIER DRAGS HER ACROSS AND PULLS HER IN! I WOULD USUALLY BE AGAINST THIS, BUT DO IT! DO IT FOR YOUR DAUGHTER, XAVIER! XAVIER POWERS HAMASA UP! END OF THE WORLD TO THE APRON! POWERBOMB TO THE APRON! THE UPPER BACK AND NECK CRASHING INTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING! XAVIER STILL HAS A JOB TO DO IN THE RING, BUT HE’S MAY HAVE JUST TAKEN OUT A MAJOR FACTOR! XAVIER ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING — SPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRR! XAVIER ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING AND WALKS STRAIGHT INTO A BONE SHATTERING SPEAR FROM METHUSELAH! HAMASA MAY HAVE VERY WELL SACRIFICED HERSELF FOR THE GOOD OF METHUSELAH! METHUSELAH CRAWLS INTO THE COVER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
Stew: NOT THIS WAY!
Stew: XAVIER WILLIAMS KICKS OUT! XAVIER WILLIAMS KICKS OUT! METHUSELAH’S IN SHOCK! I’M IN SHOCK! EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS ARENA ARE ON THEIR FEET AS THIS WAR CONTINUES! WHAT DOES EITHER MAN HAVE TO DO?
Mercer: I don’t know, but I don’t think that they do either, Stew. Methuselah slowly pushes himself back and sits in the corner just staring at Xavier. What’s going through that twisted mind of the man. Methuselah grabbing onto the top rope and pulls him back to his feet and begins to stalk as Xavier pushes himself up to his hands and knees! There’s one thing on the mind of Methuselah and I think he’s willing to do it over and over again until the man cannot and will not get back up! We usually watch as Methuselah loses himself in that frenzy, but right now he’s completely done with focused. Xavier grabbing onto the ropes and forces himself back to a vertical base. Xavier’s is not going to like what’s waiting for him! SPEAR! WwwSwPEAR! SPEEEEEEEAAAAAAARRRRRR! WIDOWMAKER!! XAVIER WILLIAMS CUTS HIM OFF OUT OF FREAKING NOWHERE WITH THE WIDOWMAKER! XAVIER FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES, QUITE POSSIBLY THE ONLY THING THAT’S KEEPING THE MAN STANDING AS METHUSELAH SOMEHOW STUMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET – BUT RIGHT INTO THE HANDS OF XAVIER!
Xavier: STAY DOWN.
Stew: XAVIER LAUNCHES METHUSELAH INTO THE ROPES! END! OF! THE! WORLD! METHUSELAH WAS DRILLED WITH THAT EMPHATIC POP UP POWERBOMB! XAVIER FALLS INTO THE COVER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
Stew: XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS BEATEN METHUSELAH!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Lydia” – Highly Suspect blasts through the speaker as Xavier slowly rolls off of Methuselah.)
Ring Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH VIA PINFALL… XAVIER WIIIIILLLLLIIIAAMMSSSS!!
Stew: XAVIER WILLIAMS HAD EARNED HIS REDEMPTION FOR THE LOSS AT PAIN FOR PRIDE! WHAT A MATCH! WHAT A WAR!
Mercer: It’s the same story as Pain for Pride, Stew; Methuselah fell JUST short of taking Xavier down. Xavier wanted this match tonight and he cashed in at it’s fullest!
(Both men remain down as Xavier slowly sits up; exhaustion has completely set it as both men recover.)
Stew: Both men left absolutely everything out there tonight; Hamasa is still down on the outside after that BRUTAL powerbomb onto the apron. What’s going to be the fallout from this? Where do either man go from here?
(Xavier rolls out of the ring and begins to limp his way up the ramp as Methuselah gingerly pushes himself up and staggers back into the ropes. Xavier looks back over his shoulder as the hint of a smile crosses his face before making his way through the curtain. The camera cuts backstage as “Lydia” continues to play.)
(The camera transitions to a locker room where Brian Daniels, dressed in his ring attire and sitting on a bench, sits across from a catatonic Robbie V in a wheelchair)
Brian: Almost time.
(Brian looks at Robbie’s emotionless expression for several seconds before chuckling)
Brian: I’ll admit, this show brings back some memories. Maybe even the most significant memories of your life. Seven years ago, you and I defended our Tag Titles for the last time. You remember? Killswitch said that if you got pinned, you would lose your spot in the King of Extreme Finals. I knew I was almost out the door at the time. I had nothing to lose, and you had everything to gain. But beyond that… Beyond just whatever we had on the line… I made certain I took the fall, because you’re my friend. You brought me here, and if it weren’t for you giving me a kick in the ass every single time I needed it, I wouldn’t have gotten this far. I’d be a nobody in a nothing company.
(Brian stops as he finishes tying his right boot before he looks back at Robbie)
Brian: I took the bullet for us, not just you. Our time together was over, I knew that. Deep down, you knew that. I wanted to see you do something great, and I needed to go. When I came back, I saw things differently. I betrayed everything we worked towards, I know that. I regret it. More than anything, I regret taking so long to get here. I regret not being there when you were fighting Project E.G.O. on your own. I regret not being there when Jaywalker slit your throat just for the sake of keeping the World Title around his waist. I regret not being there to talk some sense into you when you had gone too far. Most of all, I regret taking so long to help you. I’m gonna help you now, Robbie. Whatever Ares says, it’s a lie. He thinks someone like you is beyond redemption.
(Brian shakes his head)
Brian: You’re not beyond redemption. It’s not too late to turn back. I’m gonna make you see that. I’m gonna make you remember that all of the wrongs you committed pale in comparison to all of the rights. I know Ares is your son, but tonight… Tonight, I’m going to beat him. I’m going to beat him within an inch of his life and make him regret everything he’s done that’s brought us here. I know what it’s like to feel like you’ve lost everything, and that the only thing left is violence. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to go back to. We can still fight for the right side. Ares wants you to be the man you were when you were destroying a World Title and torturing others. I want Robbie V back. I know you’re still there, somewhere. I’ve taken what I wanted from your son, but if I have to go further – if I have to go through him to get you, then so be it. I’ll take that bullet again. I’ll sacrifice whatever I’ve got left, because I want this more than anything Ares could ever imagine. I did what I did seven years ago for RoViper. Tonight, I’m going to do what I do for RoViper. I hope you know that.
(Brian gets on his feet, walking off to finish getting ready as the camera remains on a catatonic Robbie V before transitioning back to the ring)

(Promo video plays capturing the rivalry between Jacob Senn and Heart Break Boy. It details the events of House of Glass, where Jacob Senn had became EAW World Heavyweight Champion, only to be nailed with HBB by a Goldprint. The heated rivalry continued on the road to the Elimination Chamber, where Jacob Senn would strike HBB with a low blow, before eliminating him from the match. Moments are shown to the revitalization of HBB and the change towards his moral character coming into this match, the relationship between Jacob Senn and Brody Sparks at his expense, and finally the sight of HBB holding the World Heavyweight Championship over Jacob Senn. It ends with Jacob Senn and Heart Break Boy in an intense staredown to cap the video off.)
(The camera pans back into The Royal Arena as it scans around the arena to thousands of faces with signs high in the air, the sounds of cheers filling up the building, and swinging over to the ring announcer that stands dead center in the ring.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest IS YOUR DAY ONE MAIN EVENT… AND IS FOR THE EAW WORLD HEAAAVVVYYYWEEEIIIGGHHTT CHHHHAAAMMMPIIIONNNSSHHHIIPPP!!!
(“Dark Fantasy” by Kanye West starts to play when the white light and smoke begins to fill the arena as The Heart Break Boy slowly steps out to the stage, met with a uproar of cheers from the crowd. Suddenly when the beat drops, he rips the white suit off of him into the bright lights before he jumps up and down in excitement to walk down the ramp before he kneels down in prayer, lifting his arms up to his sides, as the pyrotechnics fire off all around the stage. He jumps to his feet as he’s grown intoxicated with the fans and their reaction, entering the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger… he is from Ferguson, Missouri… weighing at 220 pounds… “The Headliner”… “The Golden Boy”… THHHEEEEE HEEAAARRRRTTTT BRREEEAAAAKKKKK BOOOYYYYY!!!
Stew-O: This is it! This is the moment that all of us here have all been waiting for! The Heart Break Boy has finally gotten the match that he has wanted since returning to Dynasty! He walks in this match confident, borderline arrogant, as he looks to finally grab the one thing that has eluded him for so long: The EAW World Heavyweight Championship. The only question that is left to ask, is what lengths will he go to in order to take it?
(The Heart Break Boy enters the ring and walks around taunting to the crowd, before he drops down and flexes with his signature lean, fireworks shooting behind him from the ring as he talks about being ready for this match. He shoots up and nods to the ring announcer before he walks over to the turnbuckle.)
(“Punisher” by Fire and Blood echoes throughout the arena with the crowd turned from joyous cheers to angered rage, with Jacob Senn stepping out of the curtain to the stage with a smirk on his face, as he wears the EAW World Heavyweight Championship around his waist. He does a gun point towards Heart Break Boy in the ring, fires it off with fireworks going off along with it, before he walks down the ramp with taunts to the crowd to mock them.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, he is from Chicago, Illinois… he weighs in at 218 pounds… he is the EAW HEEAAVVVYYYWWEEIIIGGHHHTTT CHHAAAMMMPPPIIIOONNN OF THE WOOORRRRLLLDDDDD… “Indestructible”… “The Punisher”… JAACCCOOOOBBBBB SEENNNNNNNN!!!
Jake Mercer: HERE HE IS! THE FACE OF DYNASTY AND SOON TO BE THE FACE OF THE ENTIRE COMPANY! The World Heavyweight Champion has made his arrival to Denmark to defend his championship against one of the greatest talents to ever lace on a pair of boots! This is a huge match for Jacob Senn to be a part in and I have faith that he will do what he has done since being the champion, and that’s be victorious!
(Jacob Senn climbs up the steps and walks into the ring as he raises his hand with the gun point again, aiming towards Heart Break Boy once more, before he jumps on the turnbuckle to raise his hands to his sides in spite of the crowd and hops down to remove the championship for his waist to hand to the referee.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: Can you feel the electricity? The excitement? THE ENERGY OF THE CROWD? THIS IS WHAT FANS ALL AROUND HAVE COME TO SEE! The World Heavyweight Champion going head-to-head against The Golden Boy in a match that is sure to impress! Both men are very cautious to start things off, viewing the other knowing the skill that rests between the both of them, BEFORE JACOB SENN IS THE ONE TO RUN IN AND START THINGS OFF! HBB OBLIGES AND BOTH MEN HAVE NOW LOCKED HORNS IN A GRAPPLE AS THEY FIGHT FOR THE ADVANTAGE IN THIS MATCH! Both of these men using their strength to see who will stand tall first BUT IT SEEMS DEAD EVEN FROM MY SIDE OF THINGS, WHAT ABOUT YOU, MERCER?
Jake Mercer: It’s very close, Stew! Both men are placing everything into this match and have made statements that they will do whatever it takes to be the EAW World Heavyweight Champion BUT JACOB FINALLY TURNS IT ALL AROUND AND FORCES HBB INTO THE ROPES! WAIT NO! HBB ROLLS AROUND AND FORCES SENN INTO THE ROPES! HOLD ON! SENN HAS ROLLED BACK! BOTH MEN ROLLING OVER ONE ANOTHER TO GET THE ADVANTAGE UNTIL… SENN FINALLY CORNERS HBB IN THE TURNBUCKLE! The referee walks over to separate the two of them as Jacob nods his head and holds his hands up before patting HBB on the cheek and motioning for him to bring it as he steps back! THERE IT IS! THE CONFIDENCE OF A CHAMPION BEING SHOWN RIGHT THERE BY JACOB SENN! INCREDIBLE!
Stew-O: Both men walk around the ring to size one another up again WITH HBB BEING THE AGGRESSOR THIS TIME AS THEY GO FOR THE GRAPPLE BETWEEN THE TWO! JACOB EASILY SWITCHES IT UP THIS TIME INTO A SIDE-HEADLOCK AS HE WRENCHES DOWN ON THE NECK TO WEAR HIS OPPONENT DOWN! HBB uses this to find a way out BY SHOVING SENN RIGHT INTO THE ROPES TO ESCAPE… BUT SENN SPINS OUT AND PULLS HBB BACK IN WITH HIS ARM TO THE SIDE-HEADLOCK! JACOB WILL NOT BE LETTING HIM GO ANYWHERE AND THAT’S A SMART TACTICAL MOVE BY HIM IN THIS MATCH!
Jake Mercer: The Heart Break Boy starts push on the canvas to try and pick himself up to attempt another escape BUT JACOB SENN DROPS HIM DOWN ON HIS SPINE WITH THE SNAPMARE AND KEEPS HIM THERE WITH THE HEADLOCK! WAIT! HBB TRANSITIONS THIS INTO A LEG SCISSORS ON THE HEAD TO BEGIN TO KEEP HIM DOWN IN HIS OWN MANNER! SENN ALMOST INSTANTLY KIPS UP OUT OF THE LEGS SCISSORS ONTO HIS FEET AS HBB ROLLS UP TO HIS! Jacob grabs HBB AND PUTS HIM BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH THE SNAPMARE AND INTENDS TO KEEP HIM THERE DOWN ON THE CANVAS! Jacob keeps him down to the floor as he wraps his legs around HBB’s arm with the leg scissors to do his best to keep him down on the canvas! HBB starts to show some signs of life as he starts to make his way up to his feet WITH JACOB STILL KEEPING A FIRM GRIP ON THE SIDE-HEADLOCK!
Stew-O: The Heart Break Boy continues to fight his way out of the side-headlock, doing everything in his power to do so, BUT JACOB SENN JUST WRENCHES DOWN HARD ON THE SIDE-HEADLOCK TO KEEP HIM IN CHECK! HBB JUMPS UP AND TRIES TO BREAK OUT OF IT ONCE MORE… AS HE FINALLY SPINS IT AROUND AND WRAPS HIS ARM AROUND SENN IN HIS OWN SIDE-HEADLOCK! Jacob won’t let this last as he shoves HBB into the turnbuckle JUMPING OVER HIM FOR THE LEAPFROG ON THE RETURN TRIP TO KEEP HIM MOVING AS HE DUCKS UNDER THE NEXT TIME HE PASSES! JACOB JUMPS FOR THE DROPKICK… BUT LANDS ON HIS FEET WHEN HBB CATCHES HIMSELF ON THE ROPES!
Jake Mercer: Jacob rushes in FOR THE LARIAT TO DIP HIM OVER TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! BIG BOOT! HBB NAILS HIM WITH THE BIG BOOT AS HE STUMBLES BACK INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING! HBB runs in WHEN SENN LOOKS FOR THE SNAPMARE AGAIN… BUT HBB ROLLS THROUGH AND WHEN BOTH MEN STAND ON THEIR FEET! Man, the start of this match has been nothing but excellent! Jacob stands on his feet as he holds his jaw from that big boot with HBB holding his head from the series of moves he had to fight through! Jacob start to trash talk and run his mouth as both men walk up WHEN HBB PATS SENN ON THE CHEEK THIS TIME AND DEMANDS HIM TO BRING IT! TURNABOUT IS FAIR PLAY AND YOU CAN TELL THIS IS JUST EATING SENN ALIVE!
Stew-O: Jacob Senn starts to make a face of visible irritation to that BEFORE HE LUNGES WITH THE ELBOW STRIKE TO THE FACE! HEART BREAK BOY CATCHES IT AND DROPS SENN WITH THE ARM DRAG AS HE HOLDS HIM THERE WITH AN ARMBAR! HBB starts to press his knee against the face of Senn as he continues to work the arm BEFORE SENN STARTS TO FIND HIS FOOTING AND FIGHT HIS WAY UP TO HIS FEET! HBB FORCES HIM BACK DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS AND LOCKS HIM INTO THE FUJIWARA ARMBAR WITH JACOB GROANING IN AGONY FROM THE SUBMISSION! JACOB STARTS TO REACH AROUND TO TRY AND GET A GOOD PUSH ON THE CANVAS BEFORE HE ATTEMPTS TO PULL HIMSELF UP! JACOB GETS ON HIS FEET AND STRIKES WITH AN ELBOW TO THE FACE!
Jake Mercer: Jacob has an opening as HBB stumbles back into the ropes WITH SENN GRABBING HIM FOR THE WHIP ACROSS THE RING! HBB rebounds off the ropes with Senn bending over ONLY FOR HBB TO GRAB HIM AND TOSS HIM INTO THE ROPES! Senn rebounds off the ropes this time RIGHT INTO A DROPKICK TO THE FACE! HBB stands up and taunts to the cheering crowd while Jacob rolls over to the turnbuckle corner! HBB walks over STRIKING WITH A CHOP TO THE CHEST OF SENN BEFORE LAUNCHING HIM ACROSS THE RING TO HIT THE TURNBUCKLE SO HARD HE FALLS TO THE CANVAS! Jacob starts to use the ropes to try and pick himself back up, holding his back from the sheer force of that throw, with HBB SPRINTING IN FOR THE CORNER SPLASH!
Stew-O: ELBOW STRIKE! JACOB NAILS HBB WITH THE ELBOW STRIKE AS HE STUMBLES BACK TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING! Jacob is still in the turnbuckle with HBB shaking it off RUSHING IN TO ATTEMPT FOR IT ONCE MORE! BIG BOOT! NO! HBB SLIDES UNDER THE BOOT AND ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE TO AVOID THE SHOT! HE GRABS SENN’S OTHER LEG AND PULLS HIM DOWN TO THE FLOOR BEFORE HE PULLS HIM OUT AND SLAMS IT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE POST! JACOB HOWLS IN AGONY FROM THAT WHEN HBB DOES IT AGAIN! The Heart Break Boy is dismantling the leg of Jacob Senn to give him a bit of trouble to move around the ring! HBB finally relents from driving Senn’s leg into the ring post as he rolls back into the ring to continue his assault, grabbing the injured leg, as he drags him away from the turnbuckle!
Jake Mercer: Heart Break Boy gets him to the center of the ring STOMPING AWAY AT THE THIGH OF JACOB SENN’S LEG, JUST GOING TO TOWN ON IT, AS SENN CRIES OUT IN PAIN FROM THE BLOWS! HBB adds even more suffering DROPPING A MASSIVE ELBOW DROP ON THE LEG BEFORE HE SHOVES JACOB DOWN ON THE CANVAS! HE HOOKS THE INJURED LEG AS HE HOLDS HIM DOWN FOR THE PIN!
Stew-O: THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IS QUICK TO GET THE SHOULDER UP AND HEART BREAK BOY MUST CONTINUE TO FIGHT TO MAKE THAT HIM! HBB grabs Jacob by the roots of his hair to bring him up to his feet STRIKING WITH A CRACKLING CHOP TO THE CHEST TO PAINT IT RED! Jacob with a face of sheer pain holds his chest from that BUT RESPONDS WITH A STIFF ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW THAT COULD HAVE RATTLED HIS SKULL! HBB stutters back a bit as he holds his jaw from the shot BUT HE FIRES BACK WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT RIGHT ON HIS CHIN! JACOB IS A BIT DAZED FROM THE SHOT AND HBB USES THE OPPORTUNITY TO RUN BACK INTO THE ROPES TO GAIN MOMENTUM! HBB LOOKS FOR THAT FLYING ELBOW STRIKE! SENN GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD AND THROWS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE FLOOR! HE WIPES HIS HANDS OFF AS HE MAKES IT SEEM TO BE EASILY DONE!
Jake Mercer: WHOA, LOOK AT THIS! HBB HOLDS ON TO THE TOP ROPE TO MUCH SURPRISE TO THE FANS AS HE STARTS TO SKIN THE CAT! HESITATION DROPKICK! JACOB SPRINTS IN WITH A LIMP TO LAND A HESITATION DROPKICK RIGHT ON THE BUTTON TO HBB AS HE COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR! I think HBB hit that ring apron on the way down as Jacob Senn starts to give that signature smirk of his when he does something like that! He starts to mock the fans once again before he starts to get himself fired up, waiting for HBB to stand on his feet, before he rushes to the ropes RETURNING WITH A FOSBURY FLOP RIGHT ONTO THE GOLDEN BOY ON THE OUTSIDE! STUNNING MOVE FROM THE PUNISHER AS HE JUMPS UP IN LAUGHTER AS HE RAISES HIS HANDS TO HIS SIDES IN ADORATION OF HIMSELF!
Stew-O: Of course, he would be the guy to do something like that. Jacob hasn’t had enough of HBB, however, as he grabs him and lifts him to his feet while screaming in his ear BEFORE TOSSING HIM RIGHT INTO THE RING POST THAT HBB DESTROYED HIS LEG WITH! YOU CAN HEAR THE DING OF HIS SKULL BOUNCING OFF OF THE POST! Jacob rolls right back into the ring as he allows the referee to make the count for him to get back into the ring! I have to give him credit, winning by count-out would not only give him the win, but he would still retain his championship this way!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!… FIVE!…
Jake Mercer: Heart Break Boy crawls around the floor, holding his head from the shot he had to take, as the fans try to rally him up back to his feet! HBB nods to let them know that he hears them as he powers himself up THROWING HIMSELF BACK INTO THE RING BEFORE THE COUNT WAS UP! HE’S MET WITH THE STOMPS OF THE PUNISHER RIGHT INTO HIS FACE WHEN HE ROLLS INTO THE RING, HOWEVER! Jacob is looking to take HBB apart piece by piece before he grabs him and brings him up to his feet TAKING HIM OVER TO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER AND DRIVING HIS HEAD RIGHT AGAINST THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! HBB is still dazed from the ring post shot, this just compounding it, AS HE LIMPS ACROSS THE RING TO RETURN WITH A RUNNING HIGH KNEE INTO HBB!
Stew-O: JACOB HITS IT ALL RIGHT ON THE CHIN! HE NAILED IT RIGHT INTO HBB’S FACE AS HE CONTINUES TO LAUGH AT THE GLUM LOOK ON THE FANS! He spins around and wraps his arm around the neck of HBB LIMPING FORWARD AND DROPPING HIM ON HIS HEAD WITH THE RUNNING BULLDOG! SENN PLANTS HBB RIGHT DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS, PLACING HIS KNEE RIGHT ON THE BACK OF HIS NECK, AS HE RAISES HIS HAND IN ARROGANCE MUCH TO THE DISMAY OF THE CROWD! Jacob toys around with HBB by slapping him across the back of the head before he finally stands up and brings HBB up with him STRIKING WITH A STIFF ELBOW STRIKE BEFORE TOSSING HIM INTO THE ROPES! The dazed HBB rebounds off the ropes RIGHT INTO A STANDING DROPKICK FROM JACOB AS HE STANDS UP AND SCREAMS IN PRIDE, MAKING THE CROWD KNOW WHY HE’S THE FACE OF DYNASTY, AS HE KEEPS SCREAMING AT THEM ABOUT IT!
Jake Mercer: That’s because he is, Stew, and these fans ought to be lectured by him about it! Jacob Senn shakes the pain out of his leg before he turns over and notices that Heart Break Boy is at the side of the ring, using the ropes to bring himself back to his feet, something that he doesn’t want to happen. He starts to make his way to his opponent WITH HBB DRIVING A BIG BOOT INTO THE FACE OF SENN TO HOLD HIM BACK! WAIT! SENN GRABS THE LEG AND LIFTS IT ON HIS SHOULDER AS HE DROPS IT DOWN IN A LEG VERSION OF A SHOULDER BREAKER! HBB WRITHES AROUND THE RING IN PAIN AS JACOB CONTINUES TO GIVE THAT SINISTER SMILE! Jacob stands back up STOMPING ON HIS THIGH WITH FURY IN HIS EYES AND DROPPING A KNEE DOWN ON IT, WHILE HE SCREAMS AT HIM, ASKING HIM HOW IT FEELS! Jacob is giving HBB some retribution from doing this to him earlier on in the match!
Stew-O: Jacob Senn crouches down and wraps Heart Break Boy’s leg around the bottom rope PLACING HIS BOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE AS HE PULLS BY THE ANKLE TO CAUSE HBB EVEN MORE PUNISHMENT ONTO THAT LEG! THE REFEREE IS GOING OVER TO HIM TO TRY AND REMOVE HIM FROM HBB, AS HE JUST TARGETS THAT LEG THAT’S KNOWN TO BE USED FOR THE GOLDPRINT, AS HE WANTS TO NEUTRALIZE THAT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! Jacob finally releases the hold before the count is made as he grabs HBB and pulls him up to his feet, shoving him into the turnbuckle, RIGHT WHEN HE NAILS HIM ACROSS THE FACE WITH THE ELBOW STRIKE! WHOA! THERE IS STILL SOME FIGHT LEFT IN THE GOLDEN BOY AS HE RESPONDS RIGHT BACK WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE OF HIS OWN! Senn stumbles back a bit from the shot BUT QUICKLY SNAPS BACK WITH A CHOP TO HIS CHEST BEFORE HE RUNS BACK TO THE TURNBUCKLE TO MEET HBB WITH A SECOND RUNNING KNEE INTO THE CORNER!
Jake Mercer: WHAT IS THIS? HBB ROLLS THROUGH AND OUT OF THE WAY AS JACOB LANDS RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE AS HE DROPS DOWN AND HOLDS HIS KNEE! THAT WAS THE KNEE THAT HBB HAD INJURED WITH THAT RING POST! Jacob turns around MET WITH A CHOP TO THE CHEST BY HBB AS HE CONTINUES TO CRACKLE THOSE CHOPS UNTIL HE FORCES JACOB BACK INTO THE ROPES! HBB grabs the arm of Senn as he launches him across the ring BUT JACOB SPINS OUT AND SENDS HBB RIGHT INTO THOSE ROPES! HBB rebounds off the ropes as Jacob looks t– FLYING ELBOW STRIKE! HBB FLIES ACROSS THE RING AND DROPS JACOB DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH THAT MOVE! Both men are down UNTIL HBB INSTANTLY KIPS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND STARTS TO FEEL THE ENERGY THAT THE ROARING CROWD IS GIVING UNTO HIM! HBB turns to Jacob, who starts to push his way up to his feet from that elbow strike while holding his chin, LOOKING TO PUT HIM OUT OF THIS MATCH RIGHT HERE! Jacob rises up to his feet and turns around RIGHT INTO HIS CLUTCHES FOR THE FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX! HBB DROPS JACOB DOWN ON HIS SPINE AS HE HOOKS HIS LEG IN FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT RIGHT HERE!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!
Stew-O: HOW? JACOB SENN THROWS HIS SHOULDER UP TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN ONCE AGAIN! Heart Break Boy is starting to get a bit agitated by the resolve of the World Heavyweight Champion as he stands on his feet, looking down to the fallen champion, turning his attention over to the turnbuckle nearest to them! The fans start to stand on their feet and cheer as they know what’s coming, with HBB walking out to the apron towards the turnbuckle, climbing up to the top rope AS HE COULD BE HOPING TO PUT SENN AWAY WITH THE HEART BREAK ELBOW! HBB makes it to the top as he looks down to his opponent LEAPING FOR THE ELBOW DROP RIGHT INTO THE HEART OF JACOB!
Jake Mercer: NO ONE’S HOME ON THAT ONE! JACOB SENN ROLLS AWAY TO THE APRON WHEN HEART BREAK BOY LANDS THE ELBOW RIGHT INTO THE RING! Jacob stands up to his feet on the apron with HBB picking himself up and holding his elbow from the missed Heart Break Elbow, with HBB turning RIGHT INTO A SPRINGBOA– DROPKICK! HBB JUST NAILED JACOB WITH THE DROPKICK WHEN HE HIT THE TOP ROPE AS SENN COLLAPSES TO THE OUTSIDE! Jacob has taken a mighty tumble to the outside BUT HBB ISN’T WASTING ANY TIME AS HE STARTS TO CLIMB THE TOP ROPE! HE ISN’T! HE WON’T! HBB stands on the top rope as he does the sign of the cross RIGHT BEFORE LEAPING OFF THE TOP ROPE FOR THE HEART BREAK ELBOW TO THE OUTSIDE! HE DRIVES HIS ELBOW STRAIGHT INTO THE HEART OF JACOB AS HE ALMOST COUGHS OUT A LUNG FROM THE HEIGHT OF THAT ELBOW DROP!
Stew-O: These men said they were going to leave it all on the line and tonight, they aren’t disappointing in that regard! The crowd is on their feet chanting for The Heart Break Boy, both men are down from the stunning feat that has just been achieved, and the referee is on the outside to start the count to count them out!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!…
Jake Mercer: THE ONLY THING IS THAT HBB CAN’T WIN THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP IF HE’S ON THE OUTSIDE! Both men are showing signs of life when HBB is the first man to his feet STRIKING AGAINST THE BACK OF JACOB BEFORE THROWING HIM ON THE APRON!
Referee: FIVE!… SIX!…
Stew-O: HEART BREAK BOY STRIKES WITH AN ELBOW TO THE BACK OF JACOB SENN’S HEAD BEFORE HE ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING! He stands back to his feet before he reaches over the top rope to pull Jacob up to his feet ONLY TO BE MET WITH A BACK ELBOW BY HIM! HBB reels back a bit from the blow when Jacob turns around SPRINGBOARDING OFF THE TOP ROPE TO THE ROPE ON THE SIDE OF HIM TO BOUNCE BACK FOR THE TRIANGLE PHENOMENON DDT! A TRIANGLE VARIATION OF THE SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT INTO AN INVERTED DDT! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN AS JACOB IS UNABLE TO SECURE A PIN ATTEMPT ON THE CHALLENGER, DUE TO THE PUNISHMENT HE ENDURED FROM THAT HEART BREAK ELBOW!
Jake Mercer: Hey, this just means that our World Heavyweight Champion is still in this match! I was with most of the people in this arena who thought that Heart Break Elbow spelt the end for him! The endurance of these men, the fight that they have brought in this match to determine who will be the World Heavyweight Champion, it’s just astounding! Back to the match, when we see Jacob start to roll to the apron using the ropes to hoist himself back up to his feet, as HBB is still pushing on the canvas to get to his! Jacob starts to feel like he wants to put this man away AS HE LEAPS ON THE TOP ROPE FOR THE SPRINGBOARD HIGH KNEE STRIKE! NO! HBB CATCHES SENN ON HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE FIREMAN’S CARRY! HOLD UP! JACOB STARTS TO STRIKE WITH ELBOWS TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! HE SLIDES DOWN BEHIND HBB AND HOOKS HIM BY THE WAIST FOR THE GERMAN SUPLEX! BACK ELBOW BY HBB! HE TURNS IT ALL AROUND AND HOOKS JACOB IN ONCE MORE FOR THE BRAINBUSTER! HBB SPIKES JACOB RIGHT ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD AS HE ROLLS SENN ON HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE PIN ONCE AGAIN!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!
Stew-O: JACOB SENN KICKS OUT OF THE PIN AS HEART BREAK BOY IS BEGINNING TO WONDER ABOUT WHAT HE NEEDS TO DO TO PIN THIS MAN! HBB pushes himself back to his feet as he walks back into the turnbuckle corner STOMPING ON THE CANVAS AS HE CALLS FOR THE GOLDPRINT ON JACOB! Jacob pushes on the canvas and starts to hoist himself up to his feet, weary from all he has endured in this match, turning around RIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK! OH MY GOODNESS! HBB NAILED THE GOLDPRINT… BUT ON THE REFEREE AS JACOB ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! HBB looks down in horror to see what he has done to the poor referee before he turns around MET WITH A LOW BLOW FROM JACOB! I KNEW THIS MAN WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS IF GIVEN THE CHANCE!
Jake Mercer: He’s the World Heavyweight Champion for a reason, Stew! He already told the world he would do whatever it took to retain tonight, and that’s what he’s doing right now! Jacob starts to smile with devious intent as he points down to the head of HBB with the gun point CALLING FOR GRAVITY FALLS TO END THIS MATCH! THIS IS HOW HE BEAT HIM IN THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER, NOW HE LOOKS TO REPEAT HISTORY! Jacob sprints to the ropes TO COME BACK TO FOR THE CURB STOMP! LOW BLOW! WHAT IS THIS? HBB JUST STRUCK LOW WITH AN UPPERCUT RIGHT IN THE GROIN OF SENN! THIS IS A TRAGEDY! How could this be done to a national treasure such as Jacob Senn?
Stew-O: Oh, stop it, Mercer! This is just retribution for what happened in the Elimination Chamber and don’t forget, HBB said he would also do whatever it took to walk out with the championship himself! All three men are down with the referee holding his jaw from that superkick along with the two fighters down, holding their groin from the low blows, before they finally start to roll up to their feet! HBB is the first up AS HE NAILS SENN WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE! Jacob leans back BUT RETURNS WITH HIS OWN ELBOW STRIKE! HBB feels the effects of that one BUT HE LANDS ANOTHER ELBOW STRIKE! SENN WITH THE ELBOW! HBB WITH THE ELBOW! SENN! HBB! SENN! HBB! SENN! HBB! JUST MASSIVE BOMBS BEING THROWN INTO ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE STRIKES!
Jake Mercer: The referee finally gets back up from that Goldprint, wondering what just happened, WHEN JACOB LANDS A STIFF ELBOW SHOT BEFORE TURNING IT INTO A SHOOT KICK TO THE STOMACH! SENN SPINS BACK TO LAND A SPINNING BACKFIST INTO THE JAW OF HBB BEFORE HE LOOKS TO COMPLETE THE SECOND CITY COMBINATION! BIG BOOT TO THE FOREARM! HBB NAILS HIS FOREARM AS HE SHAKES IT IN PAIN BEFORE HE FLIPS BACK FOR THE PELÉ KICK! NO ONE HOME! HBB STEPS OUT OF THE WAY AS HE FIRES WITH THE GOLDPRINT! THE SUPERKICK RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF SENN! NO WAY! THIS CAN’T BE HOW IT ENDS! JACOB SENN COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR WHEN HBB SCRAMBLES FOR THE PIN THAT COULD WIN HIM THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP RIGHT HERE! THE CROWD HAS ERUPTED WITH SUPPORT AS THEY RALLY FOR HIM TO GET THE PIN WHILE THE REFEREE SLIDES IN FOR THE COUNT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!
Stew-O: IMPOSSIBLE! IT CAN’T BE! JACOB SENN WAS ABLE TO LIFT HIS SHOULDER UP JUST IN THE NICK OF THE TIME TO STOP THE COUNT! HEART BREAK BOY IS SHOOK! SHOCK IS JUST ALL THAT YOU CAN MAKE OUT ON HIS FACE AS HE CAN’T BELIEVE THIS HAS HAPPENED AS THE GOLDPRINT HAS BEEN THE KRYPTONITE FOR SENN FOR THIS ENTIRE WAR! HBB stands on his feet as he rubs his hands over his face, contemplating what he has to do, before he turns around and brings Senn up ONLY FOR HIM TO ROLL THROUGH AND CATCH HBB BY HIS LEG! HE DRAGS HBB TO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND HOOKS HIS LEGS BEFORE HE REACHES DOWN AND PULLS HIS HEAD BACK UNDER HIS ARM! GRIM MEMENTO! JACOB SENN HAS LOCKED IN THE SURFBOARD DRAGON SLEEPER ON THE GOLDEN BOY!
Jake Mercer: YES! YES! THIS COULD BE IT! JACOB COULD CALL THIS MATCH RIGHT NOW WITH THE SUBMISSION, BUT THEY ARE DANGEROUSLY CLOSE TO THE ROPES! JACOB REARS BACK ON THE SUBMISSION AS FAR AS HE POSSIBLY CAN, BENDING HIS BACK AND NECK IN THE PROCESS, AS HBB IS JUST REACHING AROUND TO TRY AND GRAB A ROPE! HBB CONTINUES TO DO SO… WHEN HE FINALLY GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE RIGHT BESIDE THEM! THE REFEREE STARTS TO TRY AND GET JACOB OFF OF HBB, BUT SENN WILL NOT RELEASE HIM FROM THE GRIM MEMENTO!
Stew-O: JACOB SENN CONTINUES TO WRENCH BACK ON THE HOLD AS THE REFEREE COUNTS HIM DOWN BEFORE HE FINALLY LETS GO OF HEART BREAK BOY AND SHOOTS UP TO HIS FEET! Jacob begins to argue with referee about him not understanding the stakes in this match, but I believe the referee does, as these two continue to argue about it! Jacob will not let this be BUT HBB JUMPS FROM BEHIND AND HOOKS HIM BY THE WAIST BEFORE HE TURNS AROUND AND THROWS HIM BACK WITH THE GERMAN SUPLEX! JACOB IS THROWN TO THE CENTER OF THE RING WHEN HBB STANDS TO HIS FEET! HE SEEMS TO WANT A SECOND GOLDPRINT ON THE CHAMPION! Jacob rolls up to his feet as he turns around RIGHT INTO THE GOLDPRINT! NO! JACOB CATCHES HIS BOOT BEFORE HE SPINS HIM AROUND INTO THE WEAPON X! STUNNER! JACOB JUST STUNNED HBB OUT OF HIS BOOTS WITH THAT RIGHT THERE AS HE SCRAMBLES OVER TO PIN HBB IN THIS MATCH!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!
Jake Mercer: WHAT? SERIOUSLY, HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? HEART BREAK BOY KICKED OUT OF WEAPON X AND JACOB SENN THOUGHT HE HAD IT RIGHT THERE! Jacob slams the ring in frustration about this as he climbs to his feet and looked to the ring apron as he exits the ring to the apron! Jacob hopes that this will be the one as he springs up on the top rope LOOKING FOR THE SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH! HE LEAPS OFF THE ROPE AND FLIPS IN THE AIR… ONLY TO BE MET WITH THE KNEES OF HBB AS HE TURNS IT ALL AROUND INTO THE CROSSFACE! HBB HAS THE CROSSFACE APPLIED AS REARS BACK ON THE NECK WITH HIS ARM TRAPPED BETWEEN HIS LEGS IN THE LEG SCISSORS!
Stew-O: JACOB SENN IS SCRAMBLING FOR THE BOTTOM ROPE, AS HE NEEDS TO REACH IT FOR THE SAKE OF HIS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP, DESPERATELY TRYING TO GAIN IT! HOWEVER, WITH EVERY INCH HE GAINS, HBB PULLS BACK HARDER ON THE SUBMISSION TO KEEP HIM THERE LONGER! HE’S IN SOME REAL TROUBLE IF HE DOESN’T FIND HIS WAY OUT! HE… HE… HE REACHES THE BOTTOM ROPE! JACOB HAS FOUND HIS WAY OUT OF THE CROSSFACE AS HBB DOES THE HONORABLE THING AND RELEASES HIM, WITH SENN ROLLING OUT TO THE APRON CLUTCHING THE BOTTOM ROPE!
Jake Mercer: HBB is starting to get like Senn was with his submission, frustrated that he didn’t get him to submit as he stands on his feet and talks to the referee about if he saw him submit before then! HBB finally accepts it and turns around RIGHT INTO A SPRINGBOARD HIGH KNEE STRIKE FROM JACOB! STUNNER! HBB JUST TOOK A PAGE OUT OF THE JACOB SENN PLAYBOOK AND DROPPED SENN ON HIS CHIN WITH A STUNNER OF HIS OWN! HOW CAN YOU BE SO HEARTLESS TO USE ANOTHER MAN’S FINISHER AGAINST HIM? HBB ROLLS OVER AND COVERS JACOB SENN AS HE HOOKS HIS LEG IN FOR THE PIN! CAN HE DO IT? CAN HBB BECOME A TWO-TIME WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION? I CAN’T WATCH!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!
Stew-O: I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS! I JUST CAN’T! JACOB SENN WAS PROP HIS SHOULDER UP ONCE MORE AND ENDURE EVEN LONGER IN THIS MATCH! HBB HAS TURNED FROM SHOCK TO FURY AS YOU CAN ALMOST SEE A VEIN POPPING OUT OF HIS FOREHEAD! HBB grabs Senn by the head and pulls him up to his feet STRIKING HIM ACROSS THE FACE WITH SLAPS AS HE SCREAMS FOR HIM TO STAY DOWN! HE STRIKES AGAIN AND AGAIN BEFORE JACOB SHOVES HIM OFF! SUPERKICK! JACOB SENN NAILS HIM IN THE CHIN WITH THE SUPERKICK OF HIS OWN ONTO HBB AS HE COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR! JACOB DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS HBB BY THE LEG TO PUT HIM AWAY TO RETAIN HIS CHAMPIONSHIP! THE PUNISHER COULD ADD ANOTHER NAME TO HIS LIST!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!
Jake Mercer: THE REFEREE SIGNALS THAT THE COUNT WAS NOT ABLE TO BE COMPLETED AS HBB LIFTED HIS SHOULDER OFF THE GROUND FOR THE KICKOUT! JACOB SHOOTS UP TO HIS FEET AND GOES OVER TO THE REFEREE, GRABBING HIS SHIRT COLLAR AS HE IS ENRAGED, ORDERING HIM TO COUNT FASTER! The referee shows a moment of fear, but Jacob quickly releases him as he knows he might allow HBB to stand back up if he does! Jacob goes out of the ring and onto the apron, hoping this will land as he waits for HBB to stand on his feet, as he rolls around the ring and pushes himself up to his feet! JACOB JUMPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE AS HE LEAPS OFF FOR THE SPRINGBOARD HIGH KNEE STRIKE! HE HITS IT! JACOB FINALLY BURIES THE KNEE RIGHT INTO THE JAW OF HBB AS HE COLLAPSES DOWN TO HIS HAND AND KNEES! Jacob rolls towards the ropes, giving no time to taunt to the crowd, as he bounces off the ropes TO RETURN WITH GRAVITY FALLS! JACOB MAKES HBB EAT THE CANVAS WITH THAT DEVASTATING CURB STOMP OF HIS! SENN ROLLS HBB ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AS HE HOOKS HIS LEG TO HOPEFULLY PUT HIM AWAY FOR GOOD RIGHT HERE! WILL THE CHAMPION FINALLY BE ABLE TO RETAIN WITH THIS RIGHT HERE?
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Punisher” by Fire and Blood plays in the background as Jacob Senn starts to stand on his feet, but stumbles onto the ropes, before dragging himself up to his feet when the referee hands him the EAW World Heavyweight Championship.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… AND STTTTIIIIILLLLLLLL EAW WOOORRRRLLLDDDDD HEEAAVVVYYYWWEEIIIGGHHHTTT CHHAAAMMMPPPIIIOONNN… JAACCCOOOOBBBBB SEENNNNNNNN!!!
Stew-O: Wow, I’m amazed! This match was an intense, enduring and sheer captivating match to witness! Two amazing talents here in EAW have finally fought it out and finished a war that has lasted for months, in the middle of this ring, and I’m sad to have to say that it was Jacob Senn that walked out with the EAW World Heavyweight Championship at the end of the night!
Jake Mercer: YEAH, HE DID! HE JUST LEFT IT ALL IN THE RING AGAINST ONE OF THE GREATEST IN-RING PERFORMERS THAT HE COULD POSSIBLY GO AGAINST AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED? HE WON! HE RETAINED! JUST LIKE HE SAID! I can’t wait for Dynasty next week to see this amazing man arrive to tell us all about this experience of his!
Stew-O: Well, one can only wait, Mercer. However, this is a match that I have to say will be a major classic at when everything’s said and done! I just hope that this is not the final night that we’ve seen HBB compete in a match such as this!
(Jacob Senn stands on his feet with the EAW World Heavyweight Championship draped on his shoulder, with him raising it high above his head with that arrogant smile of his, before he goes up the turnbuckle and mocks the crowd as he points straight to the camera with the gun point.)
( https://i2.wp.com/i.imgur.com/Fam1SHP.png?w=1200 appears on the screen)
Cherish: It looks like it’s about time…
Pierre: An extremely personal contest between two man that truly despise one another. Some say this all began back at Territorial Invasion, but with the elements involved here, you could argue this is something that’s been coming for SEVEN years following the break up of RoViper and Robbie V’s following involvement with Jaywalker.
Cherish: Whatever the case, Pierre, there’s no doubt in my mind that this is gonna get violent… I can’t help but wonder what these two men are willing to do just to win.
(Camera transitions to a video package following the history between Jaywalker and Robbie V up to the feud between Ares Vendetta and Brian Daniels; Daniels’ desire to face Robbie V, their Answers World Championship contest at Territorial Invasion, Ares nearly ending the career of Daniels, Brian Daniels’ return at Road To Redemption, Daniels breaking Ares’ arm to help cost him the Answers World Championship, and everything else in the following weeks)
(Camera cuts back to the Royal Arena where the Ring Announcer stands in the center of the ring)
Announcer: The following contest is a TRIAL BY COMBAT!!!…..
(The crowd erupts with cheers)
Announcer: The rules are as follows… Anything goes… There are no pinfalls, and there are no submissions. The only way to win is by the person or persons designated to be in the corner of a competitor throws in the towel or verbally surrenders for their competitor.
(A loud whistling can be heard throughout the Royal Arena as the lights dim and the crowd gets on their feet, joining in)
(“Paint it Black” by Ramin Djawadi plays all throughout the Royal Arena as the entire Copenhagen crowd begins to clap and cheer along with it)
Pierre: And here comes the first competitor in this contest!
(Brian Daniels makes his way out to the stage with a determined expression, dressed in all black attire with a black barbed wire baseball bat resting upon his shoulder while he rolls out a catatonic Robbie V with his other hand)
Announcer: First, making his way towards the ring, accompanied by Robbie V…. He hails from New York City, New York!…. He weighed in tonight at 210 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE MAN IN BLACK”…. BRIAN DAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIEEEEELLLLLSSSSSSSSS!!!
Cherish: I don’t even really need to point this out, but we’ve been seeing a whole new side of Brian Daniels since he made his sudden return to the ring at Road To Redemption. We’ve ALWAYS known him to be a man of honor and clean, competitive battles, but what we saw in that Extreme Elimination Chamber… Safe to say, that was something new from him.
Pierre: He’s a man on a mission, Cherish, that much can’t be denied. He’s felt firsthand how Ares does things and he knew the only way to compete with that is to get JUST as dirty, JUST as violent. He did just that when he broke Ares’ arm with that barbed wire baseball bat of his.
Cherish: I’m just worried about whatever it is Ares is willing to do to get him back…
(Daniels leaves Robbie down by the corner of the ring before entering, getting in a corner and preparing himself as “Paint It Black” slowly fades out)
(A thunderous roar is heard all throughout the Royal Arena as the crowd greets it with loud boos)
(“Bloodlust” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as Ares Vendetta makes his way out to the stage in black and grey attire with barbed wire visibly wrapped around his left kickpad and a cast on his right arm)
Announcer: And his opponent…. Making his way towards the ring….
Pierre: SOMEONE–JAYWALKER! JAYWALKER SLIDES IN FROM BEHIND IN THE RING!! TRANSCENSION!!!! JAYWALKER WITH A VIOLENT LARIAT TO THE BACK OF BRIAN DANIELS’ NECK OUT OF NOWHERE?! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!!
(The crowd erupts with deafening boos as Jaywalker lays into Brian Daniels in the ring while a smiling Ares Vendetta continues to slowly make his way towards the ring as “Bloodlust” fades out)
Cherish: WE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WOULDN’T BE EVEN REMOTELY A FAIR FIGHT! JAYWALKER AND ARES HAVE TURNED THIS INTO A BORDERLINE HANDICAP MATCH AND IT’S ALL COMPLETELY LEGAL AS JAYWALKER PICKS DANIELS UP AND SENDS HIM SHOULDER-FIRST INTO THE NEAREST RINGPOST!!
Pierre: Sickening! Absolutely disgusting! Do these guys have NO sense of honor?! None in the slightest that they can’t even fight this even relatively fairly?! Jaywalker rolls to the outside as he reaches up, grabbing the right arm of Daniels! HE SWINGS THAT ARM HARD INTO THE RINGPOST! HE SWINGS THAT ARM OF DANIELS INTO THE POST EVEN HARDER! Jaywalker now just attacking the very arm Ares shattered back at Territorial Invasion! They may be looking to break Brian Daniels’ damn arm here!
Cherish: Ares casually rolls into the ring and watches from the corner, crouching down as Jaywalker pushes the Timekeeper over, grabbing his chair! COME ON! Somebody stop this guy! He’s not in the match! JAYWALKER WASTES NO TIME RUSHING OVER TO DANIELS AND SWINGING THAT CHAIR AS HARD AS HE CAN INTO THAT RIGHT ARM, SANDWICHING IT AGAINST THE RINGPOST!!! JAYWALKER SWINGS THE CHAIR INTO THE ARM OF DANIELS AGAIN!! AGAIN!! HE CONNECTS WITH ONE MORE VICIOUS SHOT INTO THE NOW POTENTIALLY INJURED ARM OF BRIAN DANIELS ONE MORE TIME BEFORE THROWING THAT CHAIR TO THE SIDE!
Pierre: The Referee’s scolding Jaywalker, but there’s absolutely nothing he can do about it, and both Jaywalker and Ares know it! They had this in mind from the very beginning, I’m sure! They never intended for this to be simple!
(Brian Daniels falls seated in the corner, clutching his right arm as an amused Ares crouches in the opposite corner while the concerned Referee has no choice but to call for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre: As much as we hate it, as much as it makes us sick, there’s absolutely nothing we can do about this… The ONLY way to put an end to this match is by Jaywalker or Robbie V surrendering for the man they represent, and Robbie V is just as emotionless-looking as he’s ever been! The Referee may have to make an exception and end this himself if things get as bad as it seems they will! ARES VENDETTA EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER! HE BARRELS TOWARDS DANIELS WITH MOMENTUM AT HIS BACK! BRIAN DANIELS IS COMPLETELY DEFENSELESS AS ARES CRASHES INTO HIM WITH VIOLENT DOUBLE KNEES!!! ARES DROPS DOWN, NAILING DANIELS RIGHT IN THE FACE WITH RAPID-FIRE FOREARMS!! ARES NOT GIVING HIS OPPONENT EVEN AN INCH! NOT A SINGLE INCH! THE LOOK OF SADISTIC DELIGHT ON HIS FACE SAYS IT ALL!
Cherish: YOU’RE NOT KIDDING, PIERRE, ARES LOOKS LIKE A CHILD ON CHRISTMAS MORNING AS HE LAYS INTO AN INJURED DANIELS! Jaywalker looks on, now thankfully back in Ares’ corner, but with an equally twisted smile on his face! Jaywalker may have intended to level the playing field between these two men, but all he did was stack the odds AGAINST Daniels! ARES JUST REFUSING TO RELENT WITH THIS ONSLAUGHT TO DANIELS! DANIELS HAS A BUSTED LIP FROM THE LOOKS OF IT AS ARES GETS UP, SENDING A BOOT TO THE BODY OF HIS OPPONENT! ARES STOMPING AWAY AT BRIAN DANIELS WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT! ARES WITH AN ANIMALISTIC LOOK GLEAMING IN HIS EYES!! THIS COPENHAGEN CROWD IS LIVID!
Pierre: And just LOOK at the determination of Brian Daniels! Attempting to pull himself up in the corner through sheer WILL as Ares continues the attack! ARES NOW WITH A VIOLENT KICK TO THE BODY OF DANIELS! ANOTHER KICK WITH THAT BARBED WIRE-WRAPPED KICKPAD AS IT SHREDS THE FLESH OF DANIELS! ANOTHER BIG SHOOT KICK AS DANIELS DROPS BACK DOWN! HE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE MUCH MORE! ARES IS LOOKING TO BREAK A RIB OR TWO! ARES DROPS BACK DOWN, THROWING MORE BLUNT FOREARMS TO THE FACE OF DANIELS!! HE YELLS IN DANIELS’ FACE AS HE PUTS A STOP TO IT ALL! HE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY ELATED! WHAT A DEPRAVED GUY THIS IS! He tooks no greater satisfaction in anything than torturing whoever’s in front of him! Ares backs away, but he doesn’t take his eyes off of Daniels for even a moment… Ares now… Oh no… Oh no, come on, Ares…
(Ares slowly picks up the barbed baseball bat on the canvas while the crowd’s booing grows louder)
Cherish: Brian Daniels’ arm may be rendered completely useless, he’s busted open, and he’s been absolutely laid into with everything Ares has! There’s no reason for this! Ares said himself he doesn’t want to win any match! He wants to kill this man in front of him! The Referee would be smart to end this regardless of what the rules are! Despite all of the pain he’s in, Brian Daniels continues to force himself up, clutching the ropes to aid him! Ares has that bat in hand, looking all too joyful with it! HE CHARGES IN! ARES SWINGS THE BAT INTO DANIELS!!!!
Pierre: NO–DANIELS MOVES!! HE GETS OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME AS THAT BAT NAILS THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, RIPPING INTO IT AND GETTING STUCK AS ARES IMMEDIATELY TURNS AROUND! DANIELS WITH A SICKENING HEADBUTT STRAIGHT INTO THE BRIDGE OF ARES’ NOSE!!! HE’S ALIVE! BRIAN DANIELS IS STILL ALIVE IN THIS! THE ABSOLUTE HATE WRITTEN ON THE FACE OF THIS MAN AS HE THROWS MERCILESS LEFT HANDS INTO THE FACE OF ARES!! ARES PUTS UP AN ARM TO ATTEMPT TO BLOCK THEM, BUT THAT’S ALL HE’S GOT AND IT’S JUST NOT ENOUGH AS BRIAN BREAKS THROUGH IT WITH HIS ASSAULT!! FOREARMS NOW TO ARES AS ARES IS BACKED UP AGAINST THAT BARBED WIRE BAT HANGING FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!
Cherish: KICKS TO THE BODY FROM DANIELS NOW!! DANIELS WITH LEFT AND RIGHT KICKS SO HARD YOU CAN HEAR THEM IN THE DAMN CHEAPSEATS! THE SKIN OF ARES IS TURNING BRIGHT RED FROM THE SHEER IMPACT OF THOSE KICKS! DANIELS WITH AN OPEN-HAND CHOP TO THE FACE OF ARES! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! I CAN’T BELIEVE DANIELS HAS TURNED THIS AROUND AS HE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER! SPINNING BACKFIST INTO THE FACE OF ARES VENDETTA!!! ARES IS DAZED AND CONFUSED AS DANIELS LOOKS TO FOLLOW IT UP, CHARGING INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER OF THE RING! HE’S GOT MUCH-NEEDED MOMENTUM AS HE BURSTS OUT OF THE CORNER! LOOK OUT! RUNNING DROPKICK CONNECTS INTO ARES!!!
Pierre: And the BACK of Ares Vendetta nails that barbed wire baseball bat he’s pressed against! The barbed wire ripping at the back of Ares!! Daniels isn’t done! HE CHARGES BACK INTO THAT CORNER! NO–ARES EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER TO FOLLOW HIS OPPONENT! DANIELS MAKES IT TO THE CORNER AS ARES RUSHES IN WITH A MASSIVE YAKUZA KICK TO THE FACE!! Ares immediately grabs a hold of Daniels, sending him through the ropes and crashing to the outside! I’ve never seen two men visibly despise one another quite as much as these two do! Ares drops to the outside, looking to follow up the momentum that’s shifted back into his favor! ARES WITH A BRUTAL KICK TO THE BODY OF A DOWNED DANIELS WITH THAT BARBED WIRE KICKPAD!! THE FLESH OF DANIELS RIPPED ONCE MORE! ANOTHER KICK WITH THAT BARBED WIRE KICKPAD!! Ares turns his attention to the mats here on the outside, wasting no time tearing them apart! Ares exposes the concrete underneath, looking to make good use of it…
Cherish: Brian Daniels is doing his damndest to stay alive in this contest, but I truly don’t know how much he has left in him! Ares is looking to snuff out whatever flames remain in his opponent as he drags Daniels up by his hair with one hand… HE PULLS DANIELS IN, STANDING OVER THAT EXPOSED CONCRETE! HE HOOKS THE ARMS OF DANIELS!! DON’T!! PEDIGREE DRIVER!!!! BACK BODY DROP?!! BRIAN DANIELS WITH A BACK BODY DROP TO ESCAPE IT AS ARES VENDETTA GOES CRASHING SPINE-FIRST ONTO THE EXPOSED CONCRETE!! Ares is WRITHING in pain as Daniels has a golden opportunity to take complete control of this bout! Jaywalker’s looking concerned here as he watches! Daniels has to do something! ANYTHING!
Pierre: Daniels drags himself back to his feet, clutching the ring apron! He’s snarling as he gets up! This crowd is firmly behind him! They’d love nothing more than to see him turn this around and make an example out of the former Answers World Champion! Ares still favoring his back as he struggles to get up! DANIELS BURSTS FORWARD AS ARES IS UP! A VIOLENT LARIAT TURNS ARES INSIDE OUT!! HE LANDS RIGHT BACK ON THAT CONCRETE AS A DEPRAVED BRIAN DANIELS WASTES NO TIME FOLLOWING IT UP! HE’S GRABBING THAT LEFT LEG OF ARES, PULLING AT THE BARBED WIRE WRAPPED AROUND ARES’ KICKPAD!! HE’S RIPPING OFF THE BARBED WIRE, TAKING THAT WEAPON AWAY FROM ARES!
Cherish: He’s not JUST taking the weapon from Ares, Pierre! He’s making it his OWN! Brian Daniels just pulled off that barbed wire! HE SWINGS IT DOWN INTO THE BODY OF ARES!! THE BARBED WIRE CATCHES THE SKIN OF ARES AS DANIELS PULLS IT BACK UP AND WHIPS IT DOWN INTO THE BODY OF HIS OPPONENT AGAIN!! ARES IS IN PANIC MODE! HE’S IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN AS DANIELS DOESN’T RELENT WITH THAT NEW BARBED WIRE WHIP OF HIS FOR EVEN A SECOND!

ARES IS SENT REELING INTO THE NEARBY BARRICADE! DANIELS IS RIGHT THERE WITH HIM!
Pierre: DANIELS TAKING GREAT PLEASURE IN MAIMING THIS MAN WITH HIS OWN BARBED WIRE AS HE SWINGS IT INTO ARES ONCE MORE! DANIELS MAY BE AS ONE-ARMED AS ARES IN THIS CONTEST, BUT HE MAY BE EVEN SMARTER ABOUT ADAPTING TO HIS OFFENSE! DANIELS NOW – HE’S WRAPPING THAT BARBED WIRE AROUND HIS KNUCKLES?! This guy is showing just how dirty he can get! DANIELS WITH A SICKENING SHOT TO THE SKULL OF ARES WITH THAT BARBED WIRE AROUND HIS KNUCKLES! ARES IS BUSTED OPEN! ANOTHER SHOT FROM DANIELS! ANOTHER! Daniels thankfully gets rid of the barbed wire as he charges away from Ares! What’s he thinking?! DANIELS COMES RUSHING BACK!! LOOK OUT!

Pierre: BRIAN DANIELS RUNS AS FAST AS HE CAN WITH ARES IN HIS SIGHTS!! RUNNING DROPKICK!!!! THEY BREAK THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!! THAT SECTION OF BARRICADE GIVES OUT AS DANIELS CONNECTS INTO ARES VENDETTA FOR THAT THIRD CONSECUTIVE RUNNING DROPKICK!!! SOMEHOW! SOMEWAY! BRIAN DANIELS HAS TURNED THIS CONTEST AROUND! He’s managed to completely turn this whole thing around as Ares Vendetta has found himself at his opponent’s mercy! The first few rows of this Copenhagen crowd get as close as they can around these two men as Daniels slowly rises back to his feet! The FIRE in Daniels’ eyes right now! He’s in a place we never got to see at Territorial Invasion! A place that makes him every bit as dangerous as the man he’s up against here tonight!
Cherish: Daniels reaches down, clutching Ares by his hair as he drags him up! He’s got Ares set up on his knees as this crowd cheers Daniels on! DANIELS SWINGS WITH A LOUD KICK TO THE BODY OF ARES! ANOTHER GUNSHOT-LIKE KICK TO THE STERNUM OF ARES! ANOTHER KICK! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! DANIELS DOESN’T WANT TO FINISH IT WITH THAT! HE CLUTCHES THE HAIR OF ARES AND DRAGS HIM ALL THE WAY UP TO HIS KNEES!

ARES VENDETTA DROPS DOWN, COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED AS BRIAN DANIELS HAS BEEN LAID OUT IN THE SHATTERED REMAINS OF THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE, LANDING HARD ON THE MONITORS AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT SAT ON TOP OF IT!!
Cherish: I’m stunned! I’m legitimately stunned Ares was able to pull that out after the beating he just took!
Pierre: It may have been all Ares had left in him, no more than desperation on his part, but we’ve seen just how resilient he is despite how sick and twisted he may be! He’s willing to fight through any pain he endures just to hurt whoever’s in front of him! The Official now on the outside, trying to check on Daniels, but it’s not gonna do him much good! This match has to keep going until someone’s representative surrenders! Jaywalker looks pleased with Ares while Robbie V remains completely unmoved in the slightest… Ares slowly climbing his way back up to his feet, clutching the barricade in front of him… That… That unflinching HATE in his eyes as he looks down at the battered Brian Daniels! I’ve never seen a man loathe someone quite as much as he loathes Daniels! Ares still visibly in a lot of pain, but it looks like he’s willing to keep going as he starts climbing up the barricade! Daniels is stirring, trying to get a grasp on where he is as Ares ascends to the top of the barricade! HE’S UP! DANIELS NEEDS TO MOVE!! METEORA!!!! A VIOLENT METEORA CONNECTS OFF OF THE BARRICADE AND DOWN INTO THE ALREADY BEATEN AND BATTERED BRIAN DANIELS!!!
Cherish: Ares put every ounce of his weight into that as he came CRASHING down into the sternum of Daniels! He looks pleased with himself after that as he rises back up, glaring at his opponent… ARES PUSHES THE REFEREE AWAY AND GOES INTO DANIELS, LAYING IN WITH HARD SHOTS! ARES HAS BECOME A DEPRAVED ANIMAL JUST WANTING TO MAIM THE PREY IN FRONT OF HIM! HE WANTS TO MAKE BRIAN DANIELS SUFFER! DANIELS ISN’T DEAD YET! HE THROWS A SHOT BACK AT ARES! HE REFUSES TO DO! DANIELS DOESN’T WANT HIS ROAD TO END HERE! HE WANTS HIS REDEMPTION! DANIELS WITH ANOTHER SHOT! ARES GRABS A NEARBY MONITOR AND CRACKS IT OFF THE SKULL OF DANIELS!! Daniels just cannot take back his momentum! Ares isn’t letting it happen! Daniels put up one HELL of a fight, but I think it may be all for naught at this point… Ares may have something bigger in store for his opponent here as he forces himself back up, stumbling over to the ring!
Pierre: I don’t like the looks of this one bit! None whatsoever! Ares climbs up to the apron, but he doesn’t look like he’s done there! He uses the ropes to help him up as he lumbers his way over to the corner! He’s going higher! He wants to FINISH Daniels! He wants to end him, not just in this match, but end his entire career! Ares ascends to the top! HE’S LOOKING FOR A SECOND METEORA!! HOLD ON–DANIELS IS CLIMBING BACK UP TO HIS FEET?! HE’S GETTING UP?! DANIELS IS UP!! ARES REALIZES IT TOO LATE AS DANIELS GRABS THAT SAME MONITOR ARES USED ON HIM AND CHUCKS IT!!

DANIELS NEEDS TO FOLLOW IT UP! HE NEEDS TO! EVERYTHING IN THIS CONTEST COULD HINGE ON WHAT HE DOES NEXT!
Cherish: Daniels climbs up to the apron, forcing himself up! Ares is doing all he can to shake out the cobwebs, but that monitor rocked him! Daniels rushes in with a BLUNT forearm off the face of Ares! Ares still on the top as Daniels lays into him with a second big forearm! DANIELS LOOKING TO CLIMB! Ares fights back with a big left hand to Daniels! Another shot! Daniels is back down on the apron as Ares catches him with a boot! Ares opts to climb down to the apron to avoid whatever Daniels could be looking for as he swings again! DANIELS CATCHES ARES FIRST WITH A LOUD SHOT TO THE FACE! ARES WITH A SHOT RIGHT BACK INTO DANIELS! DANIELS WITH A LEFT HAND! ARES WITH A LEFT! BOTH MEN ERUPT INTO A COLLISION OF LEFTS AS HARD AS THEY POSSIBLY CAN! BOTH MEN COMPLETELY UNABLE TO USE THEIR RIGHT ARMS! BOTH MEN ABSOLUTELY BATTERED! ABSOLUTELY BEATEN! THEY WON’T QUIT! THEY JUST WON’T QUIT AS THEY LAY INTO ONE ANOTHER WITH EVERYTHING THEY’VE GOT LEFT! THOSE SICKENING LOUD SHOTS OFF ONE ANOTHER’S FLESH!! DANIELS IS TAKING CONTROL! HE’S TURNING THE TIDE! ARES CAN’T DO ANYTHING!
Pierre: YOU MAY HAVE SPOKEN TOO SOON AS ARES SWINGS A KICK INTO THAT RIGHT ARM OF DANIELS!! DANIELS CRINGING IN PAIN!! DANIELS WITH A HEADBUTT OUT OF DESPERATION RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES OF ARES!! ARES IS DAZED! HE’S OUT OF IT!! HE’S BARELY HOLDING ON TO THE TOP ROPE!! DANIELS CHARGES ON THE APRON!! ARES CATCHES DANIELS ON HIS SHOULDERS?!! ARES CHARGES?! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!!!

JESUS CHRIST, HE MAY BE PARALYZED AFTER THAT!
(A slow-motion replay shows of Ares Vendetta hitting a running Death Valley Driver on Brian Daniels into the ringpost)
Cherish: Absolutely devastating… Brian Daniels isn’t even moving… Ares struggles to pull himself up as the Referee desperately try to check on the status of Daniels… Ares pushes the Referee away! He grabs a hold of Daniels, dragging him up… He sends Daniels rolling back into the ring! Daniels still showing no signs of life, but Ares couldn’t give a damn! He doesn’t care about anyone but himself! All he wants to do is punish Daniels! Ares searches underneath the ring! HE PULLS OUT A TABLE?! Ares sends the table sliding into the ring, but still isn’t finished looking! He’s got a trashcan filled with more instruments of torture, I’m sure! He sends it flying over the top and crashing into the ring! He’s STILL not finished! Ares pulls out a chair and throws it into the ring! A second chair he sends flying into the ring! A third chair goes in! Another! A fifth! A SIXTH chair goes crashing into the ring and… Oh no… Ares now with a black bag of some sort as he gives that sadistic smile! Ares looks at his catatonic father, smiling! He loves this! Ares loves every second of this!
Pierre: Ares slithers into the ring, eying the still battered and beaten Brian Daniels with that black bag in hand… Daniels still somehow able to move, but not a whole lot – he’s a wounded animal and Ares knows it! Ares is up with that bag in hand! HE SWINGS IT DOWN INTO THE BODY OF DANIELS! HE SWINGS IT DOWN INTO HIM AGAIN! AGAIN! ARES TORTURING DANIELS WITH WHATEVER’S IN THAT BAG! Ares opens the bag… SPILLING OUT HUNDREDS OF THUMBTACKS!! Ares wants to finish this! He pulls Daniels up! HE’S GOT HIM! HOOKING BOTH ARMS! PEDIGREE DRIVER RIGHT ONTO THOSE THUMBTACKS!!!!

DANIELS IS BITING HIM!! HE’S BITING THE SKULL OF ARES – JESUS CHRIST!! BRIAN DANIELS HAS BECOME A VICIOUS ANIMAL IN THIS CONTEST! DANIELS FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A THUNDEROUS EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO ARES!! A SECOND BIG EUROPEAN UPPERCUT CONNECTS BEFORE DANIELS CLIMBS UP THERE!! ARES STILL WON’T GIVE UP! HE’S FIGHTING BACK! BOTH MEN EXCHANGING BLOWS!

ARES IS CLAWING AT THE EYES OF DANIELS!! HE NAILS HIM WITH SHOTS OF HIS OWN! DANIELS IS STRUGGLING TO STAY UP THERE!
Pierre: ARES WITH A VICIOUS ELBOW TO THE FACE OF DANIELS! ANOTHER ELBOW STRAIGHT TO THE NOSE! BLOOD RUNNING FROM THE NOSE OF DANIELS AS ARES CONNECTS WITH A THIRD ELBOW! A FOURTH ELBOW SENDS DANIELS FALLING AND CRASHING DOWN STRAIGHT INTO THE THUMBTACKS BELOW!!! ARES NEEDS TO FOLLOW IT UP!! HE’S GOTTA DO SOMETHING!
Cherish: NO–LOOK!! BRIAN DANIELS IS BACK UP?! HE’S BACK UP!! HE’S COVERED IN THUMBTACKS, LOOKING LIKE A MAN POSSESSED AS HE CHARGES UP TO THE TOP!! ARES IS TRYING TO FIGHT IT! HE THROWS AN ELBOW, BUT IT’S CAUGHT BY DANIELS! ARES WITH AN ELBOW WITH HIS FREE ARM, BUT DANIELS CATCHES IT AS WELL!! HE’S GOT HIM!! TIGER SUPLERPLEX!!!!!!

ARES MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CONTINUE!! HE MAY BE VERY CRITICALLY HURT!! THE REFEREE NEEDS TO PUT A STOP TO THIS CONTEST REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE RULES MAY BE!! ARES’ DAMN LIFE COULD BE ON THE LINE!
(Slow-motion replay of Brian Daniels sending Ares Vendetta and himself crashing into the thumbtacks below with a Tiger Superplex)
Cherish: The Referee’s trying to get a response out of Ares! NO WAY! Ares is somehow moving! He’s got a glazed over look in his eyes as he clutches the shirt of the Official! Unbelievable! How is he still able to move! He’s gotta be going on pure adrenaline by now! The Referee visibly wants to end this, but Ares shakes his head “no”! He’s desperately clinging to the shirt of the Referee as the Official gets back up! Ares is using the Referee to help himself up! Daniels is rising back up! ARES PUSHES THE OFFICIAL OUT OF THE WAY, GOING FOR DANIELS!! CAUSTIC ECHO!!!!! BRIAN DANIELS WITH A CAUSTIC ECHO LOUDLY CONNECTING OFF THE SKULL OF ARES VENDETTA RIGHT OUT OF THE BLUE!!! ARES IS DOWN!! HE’S DOWN! JAYWALKER LOOKS ON, REALIZING THE END MAY BE NEIGH!! BOTH OF THESE MEN HAVE GONE OUT OF THEIR WAY TO DESTROY ONE ANOTHER! THEY’RE INJURED, IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN, COVERED IN THUMBTACKS, AND THEY JUST DON’T CARE! DANIELS IS SNARLING AS HE GETS BACK UP! THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET! HE DRAGS ARES UP TO HIS KNEES! ARES LOOKS ABOUT AS LIFELESS AS HIS FATHER RIGHT NOW!
Pierre: Daniels makes his way over to that corner where that barbed wire baseball bat remains hanging from the top turnbuckle! He RIPS it out, sending the stuffing from the turnbuckle going everywhere! I can’t even imagine what’s about to come next… Daniels limps towards Ares with that baseball bat in hand… Come on, Brian… You can’t do this! DON’T DO IT! DANIELS SWINGS THE BAT INTO THE SKULL OF ARES!!!
Cherish: ARES GRABS THE NEARBY TRASHCAN, USING IT AS A SHIELD AS THE BAT SLAMS INTO IT!! DANIELS SWINGS AGAIN AS ARES BLOCKS IT WITH THE TRASHCAN!!! HE SWINGS IT AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AS ARES DESPERATELY TRIES TO PROTECT HIMSELF FROM A POTENTIALLY FATAL SHOT!! THE BARBED WIRE BAT RIPS THROUGH THE TRASHCAN, WRAPPING AROUND IT AS DANIELS TRIES TO GET IT OFF!! ARES SEIZES THE OPPORTUNITY TO CATCH DANIELS WITH A VICIOUS LOWBLOW!!

THAT KNEE UPPERCUT ELEVATED OFF THE KNEE OF DANIELS CONNECTS!!! DANIELS IS DOWN!! HE MAY HAVE LOST WHATEVER MOMENTUM HE HAD!! Ares is alive once more! He knows he has to end it! Jaywalker’s shouting orders from the outside, telling Ares to finish it! Telling Ares to end Daniels! Ares grabs that nearby table as he rises back to his feet! He takes it to the nearest corner, setting it up there before making his way back to Daniels! Ares has that look in his eyes once more as he drags Daniels up!

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, REF, RING THE BELL OR SOMETHING!
Pierre: Hold on… Ares now telling Jaywalker… Oh no…
Ares (no mic): GET HIM IN THE RING!
Pierre: Oh come on! Ares is pointing to his lifeless father at ringside as Jaywalker smiles! These two sadists are on the same page as Jaywalker makes his way over to the catatonic Robbie V! He pulls Robbie out of the chair, verbally taunting him as he kicks the wheelchair over! Jaywalker rolls Robbie into the ring as Ares makes his way over to his father!

Cherish: Ares picks up Daniels’ barbed wire baseball bat, admiring it… I… I don’t want to watch this! Ares–
(The crowd begins to loudly cheer)
Pierre: ARES SWINGS!!!!
(The barbed wire baseball bat is pulled from Ares Vendetta’s hands as he immediately turns around to lock eyes with Robbie V)
Cherish: Oh my God… Robbie V… ROBBIE V IS STANDING! HE’S STANDING! ROBBIE V IS ACTUALLY MOVING! HE’S THERE! HE TOOK THE BAT FROM HIS SON’S HANDS! ARES IS AT A LOSS FOR WORDS! HE’S STUNNED! I’M STUNNED! Ares backs away… Hold on, Ares is… Smiling? What on Earth… Ares is offering Robbie Brian Daniels! He wants his father to be the one to finish this! Robbie isn’t disagreeing whatsoever?!

(DING! DING! DING!)
Cherish: JAYWALKER THREW IN THE TOWEL FOR ARES! HE SURRENDERED FOR HIM! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! Brian Daniels looks shocked as well!
(A visibly disappointed Jaywalker walks off without looking back, shaking his head)
Pierre: I think Jaywalker just realized Ares lost this match! There was no way he would be able to turn that around! Daniels was moments from breaking his other arm!
Announcer: The Winner of this contest…. BRIAN DAAAAANNNNNNNNNIIIIIEEEEELLLLSSSSS!!!!
(“Paint It Black” by Ramin Djawadi plays all throughout the Royal Arena as a bloody and battered Brian Daniels drops to his knees, exhausted, locking eyes with Robbie V)
Pierre: Brian Daniels has done it! Somehow, some way, he did it! He beat Ares Vendetta once and for all, despite the odds stacked against him!
Cherish: And even more important than that, he got Robbie V back! ROBBIE V IS BACK! I can’t believe I’m saying that! After two and a half YEARS, Robbie V is back!
(Robbie and Brian Daniels exchange inaudible words with one another before Robbie gets back to his feet, helping Daniels back to his feet)
Pierre: For several months, Brian Daniels has been fighting to get his friend back! He put his career in jeopardy, he put his body on the line! He did absolutely everything in his power to make this happen, and here it is! Daniels has beaten Ares Vendetta, and Robbie V has FINALLY come back!
(A concerned Bishop rushes down to the ring to check on Ares as Robbie helps Brian Daniels out of the ring)
Cherish: A HUGE congratulations to Brian Daniels tonight! A HUGE welcome back for Robbie V! This really puts a smile on my face! What a moment! Through all of the pain and suffering these two men have endured, they’ve finally reunited here tonight at King of Elite!
(The crowd continues to cheer on Robbie and Brian as they take their leave while Bishop struggles to help Ares up)
Pierre: Ares looking worse for wear here, visibly in pain… Bishop trying–
Cherish: ARES GRABS A HOLD OF HER?! HE PULLS HER IN!!! PEDIGREE DRIVER?!!!! ARES VENDETTA HITS BISHOP WITH A PEDIGREE DRIVER OUT OF NOWHERE, IMMEDIATELY WRITHING IN PAIN ONCE MORE, BUT WITH A LOOK OF ABSOLUTE HATE!!
(Ares rolls out of the ring, struggling to stay on his feet as he limps away while the crowd loudly boo)
Pierre: This guy’s lost it…
(Camera fades backstage where Eve is seen walking down quickly down the hallway, chasing after someone.)
Eve: Hey! Hey! Matt! Can you just give me a second for a few words!
(Matt Ryder turns around and rips the microphone out of Eve’s hand.)
Matt Ryder: Stop, just stop. You will not be asking me anything and if you want a few words, they are going to be delivered by me, on my own accord, nothing less or more. You can essentially leave, I am sure your presence would be more appreciated elsewhere at this very moment.
(Eve stands frozen, not moving as Ryder shrugs.)
Matt Ryder: Whatever. You can stay, but stay quiet.
(Eve nods as Ryder turns his attention to the camera.)
Matt Ryder: Here is all you need to know. What happened earlier tonight on the pre-show, which I do not blame you for not watching, was embarrassing. Who for? You would expect me to say myself, saying I went from defeating the likes of Lannister and The Heart Break Gal to losing to the likes of David Davidson and Jack Ripley. Trust me, I can identify rock bottom when I am there. I digress, because the embarrassment does not go on me, or the High Rollerz, but instead on Matt Miles. If the brakes are applied to one wheel on a bike, it will still screech to a halt. That is what Matt Miles was to Matt Squared, the brake that would not release. The gas pedal that would not accelerate. He held me back; I send him back. He will not dare show his smug, disappointing countenance on Showdown no more. I ended him just like he ended our reign. He can stay on Voltage where he will continue to climb five steps, just to fall ten more down. I do not need an imbecile with a similar name to find success. I will find it on my own, and I am more than happy to say that I will never, EVER, see Matt Miles again. I do not have time for anymore jokes.
(Matt Ryder shoves the microphone into Eve’s chest before storming away.)
(King of Elite comes back from commercial as it focuses on StarrStan and SG1.)
SG1: Welcome everyone back to King of Elite! I’m SG1 and here’s my commentating partner StarrStan!
Starr: Tonight we have two of the most prominent figures of Empire go head-to-head for the Women’s World Championship, one of the most prolific rivalries to date and that’s starting RIGHT NOW!
(The lights in the arena begin to glow a bright shade of hot pink as “Formation” by Beyonce begins to play. Those in attendance rise to their feet as Aria Jaxon emerges from backstage. She extends her hands outwards and shows off her ring gear to the fans. Aria then begins to strut down the ramp and towards the ring.)
SG1: The Vixen of the Year, the number one contender and the FUTURE Women’s World Champion!
Starr: Are you blind? You think this little troll is going to beat our Empress of Elite? Give me a break.
SG1: The only thing that’s going to break is your neck! Aria is one, if not the MOST iconic woman to ever step foot in that squared circle. She has the athleticism, she has the charisma, she has the talent to be the face of Empire.
(Aria is on the ring apron as she blows a kiss to the cheering fans. Suddenly, the lights dim. Red lights begin to flash as “Confident” by Demi Lovato begins to play throughout the arena to the dismay of the fans. Red and green pyros shoot off from the stage as a smug Cailin Dillon emerges with her Women’s World Championship strapped around her waist. Cailin unhooks her title and raises it the air. She then places it on her shoulder and walks towards the ring ignoring the booing fans.)
Starr: What an entrance! These ungrateful Danish immigrants! How dare they boo the woman who single handedly built up the Women’s title to what it is today?
SG1: I think both Aria and Cailin have collectively done that such thing, Starr.
Starr: HA! What illogical thinking process you have. Cailin has worked her ass off to put some prestige to that title. If it wasn’t for her, we would’ve had [REDACTED] as champion, do you realize how terrible that would’ve been?! Cailin Dillon is our champ and she’s going to be treated like the queen she is.
(Both Aria and Cailin stand on the opposite side of the ring as a female ring announcer stands in the middle.)
RA: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL! And it is for the EAW Women’s World Championship! Introducing first the challenger – Hailing from Los Angeles, California. She is the 2016 Vixen of the Year… ARIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAXOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Aria extends her arms outwards as the audience cheers. She looks back at Cailin who is standing with her championship tightly pressed against her chest and smiles.)
RA: And the champion… Hailing from Dallas, Texas.. She is your EAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION… CAAAIILINNNNNN DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Cailin steps forward and carefully raises her Women’s Championship high in the air as she doesn’t break eye contact with Aria.)
Starr: The intensity of this matchup is certainly one that you can just cut with a knife. These two women went from being close friends to bitter enemies.
SG1: They were both witnessed first-hand the betrayal of Stephanie Matsuda during their Formation days, however, we ALL witnessed Cailin’s infamous betrayal at Shock Value where she turned on her Siren teammates to join the OG Vixens.
(The ref asks for Cailin’s Championship and after a few seconds, she complies. The referee shows both competitors the title then holds it high for the audience. He signals for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: Ladies and gentlemen, this match is underway! Dueling chants from the crowd echoing throughout the Royal Arena as both Aria and Cailin approach the middle of the ring, inaudible words being spoken back and forth; a storied history with these two women, cementing their place as arguably the faces of this new era for women in EAW. Can only imagine the words being spoken right now. Both women step back and begin to circle the ring, their eyes locked on one another but it doesn’t last long, both women step back into the middle of the ring and lock up with a collar and elbow tie up! Cailin manages to get the advantage as Aria drops to a knee but almost immediately she shoots back up! Still tied up, both women fighting for an advantage in the opening minutes of this contest as Aria manages to force Cailin back a step and then another! Aria forcing Cailin onto the ropes forcing a break as Cailin covers up; Aria raises her fist but proceeds to tap Cailin on the shoulders as she backs away.
Starr: Aria Jaxon playing mind games but Cailin immediately responds with a knee to the midsection! She raises Aria’s had back up and fires away with the a knife edge chop before sliding into a side headlock! Cailin drives Aria down to the canvas but Aria manages to only fall to a knee as Cailin Dillon cinches the headlock in more and more. Aria tries to push back to her feet and push Cailin off but Cailin grips both hands tighter and keeps the headlock in, taking Aria back down to a knee and applying more pressure. Trying to wear down her opponent as Aria attempts to squeeze her head out of the submission hold! She manages to fight back to a vertical base as Cailin refuses to let go of the hold! Cailin connects with a quick kick to the back of the knee and Aria AGAIN is forced back to a knee but this time she wastes zero time and fights back to her feet! AND ARIA IS FREE! SHE FLOATS AROUND THE BACK AND TRIES TO APPLY A HEADLOCK OF HER OWN BUT CAILIN DIPS TO THE CANVAS, ARIA COLLECTS NOTHING BUT AIR AND CAILIN AGAIN SWOOPS BACK INTO THE HEADLOCK!
SG1: But Aria is well aware of her surroundings, she forces Cailin onto the ropes and this time successfully pushes her away. Cailin darts across the ring as Aria steps forward shaking out the cobwebs and Cailin connects with a lariat! Cailin wasting little time bounces back off the ropes but Aria rolls away, Cailin steps over and rebounds off the otherside! Aria shoots back to her feet and leaps over Cailin as she comes charging back! But Cailin pauses and locks both arms around Aria’s waist! German Suplex! NO! Aria blocks and fires away with a stiff elbow to the jaw! A second and a third! Cailin releases her grip and Aria floats around the back! NO WAY! ARIA LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH THE PINKPRINT! BUT CAILIN MANAGES TO CATCH HER AND TOSSES HER ONTO THE CANVAS. ARIA SCRAMBLES BACK TO HER FEET AND TURNS–
Starr: EYES OF TEXAS! NO! ARIA DUCKS UNDER AND CAILIN MISSES AND THE CROWD COMES TO LIFE WITH A ROAR OF APPROVAL! So evenly matched, these two know one another like the back of their hands. Both women turn back to one another, both wearing grins as they again approach the center of the ring, once again engaging in a war of words– AND CAILIN CONNECTS WITH A SLAP THAT ECHOES THROUGHOUT THE ARENA! Immediately Cailin bounces back onto the offensive with repeated forearm shots! Aria desperately tries to cover up as she’s forced onto the ropes! Cailin Irish whips Aria across the ring and connects with a dropkick! Both boots being driven into the face of Aria Jaxon as Cailin slides into the cover.
SG1: NO! Aria manages to power out shortly after the second count. Cailin with all the momentum early in this contest and she looks to waste zero time, sitting Aria up and drives the knee into the spine! Aria arches on impact but again Cailin raises her and drives the knee again, this time holding it in place and clutching both hands under Aria’s jaw! Cailin yanking Aria’s head back, the knee planted firmly into her spine but Aria quickly begins to fight back to a vertical base! Repeated elbows into the ribs; now stiff fists! Cailin backs into the corner trying to cover up and Aria fires away with a clubbing forearm to the back. STIFF FOREARM TO THE JAW! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! STIFF FOREARM TO THE JAW! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Back and forth Aria wearing down Cailin! She pulls her out of the corner and whips her across to the opposite corner but Cailin reverses it and sends Aria crashing into the corner! Both women stumble towards the middle of the ring BUT ARIA CHARGES AND CONNECTS WITH A SLING BLADE!
Starr: Cailin races back to her feet and comes off the ropes but Aria connects with a low dropkick to the right knee! Cailin collapses to the canvas and clutches it right away!
(A slow motion replay shows both boots of Aria Jaxon colliding with Cailin’s right knee)
Starr: Cailin doing everything she can to create some breath rooming as she uses her left leg to kick out at Aria! Cailin slides under the bottom rope and uses the ropes to pulls herself back to her feet AND ARIA AGAIN CONNECTS WITH A LOW DROPKICK! AGAIN TARGETING THE RIGHT KNEE AS CAILIN’S FACE BOUNCES OFF THE RING APRON! Aria drops to her haunches to catch her breath as the referee begins to make the count!
ONE!! TWO!! THREE!!
SG1: Aria rises back to her feet and approaches the ropes. Cailin taking her time on the outside, driving her own fist into the knee to get some sense of feeling into it and knowing Aria can’t win the title via countout. And Aria realises this! She steps over the second rope and onto the ring apron– CAILIN JUMPS BACK TO HER FEET AND SWEEPS ARIA OFF HER’S!!! SHE CRASHES ONTO THE RING APRON AND COLLAPSES TO THE OUTSIDE! A WICKED SMILE ACROSS THE FACE OF CAILIN DILLON AS THE REFEREE RESTARTS HIS COUNT!
ONE!! TWO!! THREE!!
Starr: Cailin pulls Aria to her feet by her hair; she drops the shoulder into her mid-section and drives Aria spine first into the ring apron!
FOUR!! FIVE!! SIX!!
Starr: Cailin drags Aria back to her feet and tosses her into the steel ring steps! NO! Aria with enough wherewithal to step over and prevent a collision.
Starr: AND NOW BOTH WOMEN COME TO BLOWS! LEFTS AND RIGHTS BEING THROWN AS BOTH WOMEN DISREGARD THE REFEREE’S COUNT! ARIA! CAILIN! ARIA! CAILIN!
Starr: STILL SHOWING NO CARE FOR THE COUNT. ARIA TRIES TO BOUNCE CAILIN’S HEAD OFF THE STEPS BUT CAILIN CONNECTS WITH AN ELBOW. BOTH WOMEN AGAIN TRADING BLOWS.
SG1: BOTH CAILIN AND ARIA RACES BACK INTO THE RING FROM DIFFERENT SIDES TO BEAT THE 10 COUNT! BUT IMMEDIATELY RISE BACK TO THEIR FEET AND AGAIN BEGIN TO THROW WILD FISTS. ARIA! CAILIN! ARIA! CAILIN!
ARIA! CAILIN! ARIA! CAILIN! ARIA! CAILIN! NO! ARIA DUCKS AND FLOATS AROUND THE BACK! SHE LOCKS IN THE FULL NELSON; CAILIN IMMEDIATELY BREAKS IT BUT ARIA CLUTCHES BOTH WRISTS! STRAIGHT JACKET GERMAN! ARIA HOLDS THE BRIDGE!
Starr: CAILIN POWERS OUT! Momentum in this match swaying back and forth as Cailin rolls away from the pin and Aria rises to her knees. Cailin uses the turnbuckle to drag herself back to her feet as Aria rises back to hers. She approaches the defending Women’s Champion but Cailin fires away with a forearm to the jaw! Aria stumbles backwards shaken by the shot but connects with a shoot kick back to the knee. Cailin falls back into the corner and Aria quickly follows it up with a knife-edge chop! Aria lifts the right leg of Cailin Dillon up onto the second rope and immediately connects with a kick under the knee! Cailin drops to the canvas and immediately rolls away clutching her knee. A meticulous approach by; without the knee it’s hard for Cailin to connect with the superkick. Cailin again trying to create some separation between her and Aria Jaxon but Aria repeatedly fires away with stomps and kicks, switching back and forth from targeting the knee to targeting the ribs. Cailin desperately trying to cover up, crawling into the ropes and clutching the bottom rope forcing the referee to intervene.
SG1: Aria is forced away from the ropes as Cailin slowly uses them to get back to a vertical base! Aria brushes past the referee AND CAILIN CONNECTS WITH A THUMB TO THE EYE! Out of pure desperation; Aria desperately tries to shake it off and charges back but Cailin scoops her up and drives her back first across the knee! The spinning backbreaker connects! Cailin shaking some feeling back into the knee as she drags Aria by her hair. Aria reluctantly climbs back to her feet before Cailin drives the knee into the ribs and connects with a snap DDT! Planting Aria on her skull and rolls her onto her back for a pin!
OOONNEEEE!!!! TTTWWWWOOOO!!!!! TTTHHHRRREEE–KICKOUT!
Starr: Aria gets her shoulder off the canvas well before the three count. Cailin falls back away from the pin, a sense of frustration falling over as Aria sits back up, immediately clutching the back of her neck. Cailin bounces back to her feet and connects with a shoot kick to the spine. Cailin grits her teeth as she drags Aria to her feet and drives her into the corner. Again she drives the shoulder into the mid section and almost folds Aria in half. Cailin relentless with each drive, trying to suck the wind, the life out of Aria Jaxon. Cailin follows it up with a stiff fist forearm shot to the jaw and Aria sinks to the canvas! Absolutely no reprieve as she begins to stomp away, Aria covers himself up and turns to her side; Cailin drives the boot into the back of the head forcing the referee to step in!
ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
SG1: Cailin backs away from the corner with both hands raised but only for a moment! She grips the top rope, steps off the back of the challenger AND COMES CRASHING DOWN WITH BOTH KNEES BEING DRIVEN RIGHT IN THE SPINE WITH AS MUCH FORCE AS SHE COULD POSSIBLY MUSTER! AN INVERTED MODIFIED SHINKANSEN ATTACK! ARIA ROLLS AWAY AND NOW IT’S CAILIN STOMPING AND KICKING AWAY AND ARIA NOW TRYING TO CREATE ROOM BETWEEN HERSELF AND CAILIN! Cailin Dillon with a grin of arrogance, she’s turned the tide of this contest back in her favour as she watches Aria scratch and claw across the canvas. Cailin tries to roll Aria onto her stomach but Aria kicks out at the knee. Aria tries to kick out once again but Cailin clutches the leg, drags her in and stomps away at the mid section! Cailin retains her hold on one leg and lifts the other! But Aria continues to fight away, kicking at the shoulder but once again Cailin catches it and steps through looking for the sharpshooter! She crosses the legs yet aria is refusing to turn onto her stomach, doing everything she can to fight out of it but it’s folly! THE SHARPSHOOTER IS LOCKED IN! Cailin drags Aria to the center of the ring and begins to apply pressure to the beaten spine as Aria begins her desperate attempt to reach the bottom of the ropes! Aria pushes herself up off the canvas but Cailin sinks further into the hold, further applying pressure to the back! She has no choice but to drag the weight of Cailin on her back! Aria stretching out as far as she can, digging her nails into the canvas deeper each time to pull herself closer and closer to the bottom rope! She’s inches away but Cailin pulls her back to the center of the ring. Beads of sweat falling to the canvas as Aria again tries to drag herself towards the ropes but Cailin swiftly drags her back to the middle, almost completely sitting on her back, applying immense pressure.
Starr: The toll of the beating shes taken starting to mount up, each attempt to reach the bottom rope leaving less and less in the tank. But she’s refusing to tap! Aria again pushes herself off the canvas and again Cailin sinks in further but this time Aria doesn’t fall back to the canva; BUT SHE ROLLS THROUGH INSTEAD! CAILIN REFUSES TO LET GO AND ARIA ROLLS HER ONTO HER BACK. ARIA RISES BACK TO HER FEET, CAILIN TRIES TO RELEASE THE HOLD BUT INSTEAD ARIA TRANSITIONS INTO THE FIGURE FOUR! NOW IT’S CAILIN STRUGGLING TO GET TO THE ROPES, DESPERATELY TO FORCE A BREAK BUT ARIA ISN’T GIVING HER AN INCH; SHE DROPS DOWN AND FIRES AWAY WITH CLUBBING ELBOWS; CAILIN TRIES TO COVER UP THE BEST SHE CAN. CAILIN DRAGS ARIA BY THE HAIR TO THE CANVAS, ARIA CONTINUES TO DRIVE THE POINT OF THE ELBOW BUT CAILIN MANAGES TO ROLL HER ONTO HER BACK, PINNING HER SHOULDERS TO THE CANVAS.
OOONNEEEE!!!! TTTWWWWOOOO!!!!! TTTHHHRRREEE–
SG1: Aria manages to powers out but she’s met immediately by a forearm to the jaw! Aria reaches up and connects with a forearm shot of her own and Cailin untangles herself from Aria’s legs, backing away immediately.
(The camera shoots to an overview of the arena as both women slowly rise back to their feet)
SG1: More words beings exchanged as they reach the middle of the ring. Exhaustion setting in, both women struggling to catch their breath as Cailin pulls Aria in and connects with an uppercut! Aria stumbles back but steps forward again, pulls Cailin and connects with an uppercut of her own! Aria swings wildly for a standing lariat yet misses as Cailin ducks and charges towards the ropes; Cailin turns and is immediately met with a knee to the midsection by Aria! Aria turns and tries to run the ropes on the opposite but Cailin at the last second grabs a fist full of her hair and drags her down to the canvas! Cailin connects with the leaping knee drop! NO! Aria moves and Cailin comes crashing down! This time Aria has no problem charging onto the ropes — CAILIN POPS TO HER FEET! DROPKICK! NO! ARIA HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES! CAILIN SIT BACK UP IMMEDIATELY BUT ARIA CONNECTS WITH A SLIDING KNEE! NO! CAILIN FALLS BACK TO THE CANVAS AND ROLLS AWAY; ARIA SWINGS THE KNEE AND ONLY COLLECTS AIR. ARIA SCRAMBLES TO HER FEET– TEXAS TWO-STEP! THE CUTTER FROM CAILIN DILLON CONNECTS! CAILIN FLOORS ARIA WITH THE CUTTER! Cailin isn’t wasting any time, quickly rises back to her feet and exits the ring, ascending to the top turnbuckle! OH MY GOD! ARIA RACES BACK TO HER FEET AND CONNECTS WITH A BRILLIANT DROPKICK JUST AS CAILIN REACHES THE TOP ROPE! CAILIN TUMBLES AND CRASHES AND BURNS ON THE OUTSIDE! A SICKENING THUD ON IMPACT!
Starr: And Aria takes the opportunity to catch her breath. Cailin landed awkwardly on the outside, a fair amount of the impact being felt on the knee Aria has targeted throughout the match. The referee slides out of the ring to check on the champion as Aria slowly rises to her feet and surveys the damage outside. Neither women has been able to remain in control but SG1, that might just have been the moment the pendulum swung back in Aria’s favour for good as Cailin uses the referee to get back to her feet – WATCH OUT! WATCH OUT! CAILIN SHOVES THE REFEREE AWAY AS ARIA JAXON FLIES OVER THE SECOND ROPE! TOPE SUICIDA! TORNADO DDT! ARIA PLANTS CAILIN ON THE OUTSIDE WITH A WICKED SUICIDE DIVE, DDT COMBINATION!!! ARIA IS DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN, LEAVING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LEFT TO WIN THIS MATCH! TO BECOME THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION!
(A replay shows Cailin crashing on the outside before cutting to the suicide dive and tornado DDT combination. Back live, the official slides back into the ring and Aria stirs on the outside)
ONE!! TWO!! THREE!! FOUR!!
SG1: Aria is the first back to her feet and rolls into the ring but rolls back out to restart the count while Cailin uses the steel steps to drag herself to her feet. Aria clutches a fist full of hair and drives the face of Cailin Dillon onto the steel steps! Cailin reels from the collision and slides into the ring; but she doesn’t have a moment to breath! Aria immediately follows her back in, almost methodically stalking her as Cailin struggles to get back to her feet. Cailin rises to a vertical base AND ARIA CHARGES PAST HER! ONE NIGHT STAND!!! YES IT CONNECTS! THE SPRINGBOARD STUNNER CONNECTS AND ARIA HOOKS BOTH LEGS! EVERYONE IS ON THE EDGE OF THEIR SEATS!
OOONNEEEE!!!! TTTWWWWOOOO!!!!! TTTHHHRRREEEEEEE
Starr: NO! IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO PUT THE CHAMPION AWAY! Aria runs her hands through her hair as she rises back to her feet but isn’t allowing the frustration to get the best of her as she screams at Cailin to get to her feet! Slapping the champion across the back of the head as she rises back to a single knee! ARIA DRAGS CAILIN THE REST OF THE WAY AND LIFTS HER UP FOR A SUPLEX! RAGS TO RICHES! THE BRAINBUSTER! NO! CAILIN FLIPS OUT OF IT! ARIA TURNS– EYES OF TEXAS!!!! OH MY GOD, OUT OF PURE DESPERATION IT CONNECTS! BOTH WOMEN COLLAPSE TO THE CANVAS BUT CAILIN CAN’T MAKE THE COVER! GOOD LORD, HOW DID SHE MANAGE TO PULL THAT OUT?!? CAILIN NOW MAKING THE SLOW, SLOW CRAWL TOWARDS ARIA AND HE CAN ONLY DROP THE ARM ACROSS THE CHEST!! SHE’S DONE IT! SURELY SHE’S RETAINED!
OOONNEEEE!!!! TTTWWWWOOOO!!!!! TTTHHHRRREEEEEEE!!!!
SG1: NO! NO! NO! NO! ARIA GETS THE SHOULDER UP AND THE CROWD ERUPTS IN A CACOPHONY OF CHEERS! YOU CAN SEE THE DISDAIN ACROSS THE FACE OF CAILIN DILLON AS SHE REALISES SHE KICKED OUT. CAILIN STUMBLES BACK TO HER FEET AND DRAGS ARIA INTO POSITION NEAR THE CLOSEST CORNER. SHE EXISTS THE RING ONCE AGAIN AND HESITATES BUT ARIA HASN’T MOVED A BIT. CAILIN PERCHES HERSELF ON THE TOP ROPE, HER BACK TURNED AS SHE RISES BACK UP AND CONNECTS WITH A MOONSAULT! YES! IT CONNECTS BUT THE IMPACT TOOK THE WIND OUT OF HER AND SHE CAN’T MAKE THE COVER. Cailin takes her time slowly rising back to her feet as Aria remains on the canvas clutching her ribs, coughing and gasping for air. And now it’s perhaps the champion Starr who feels as if victory is within her reach as Cailin Dillon slowly makes her way towards Aria. Almost screaming at her to rise back to her feet. Aria pulls herself to a knee; Cailin delivers a swift kick to the back but Aria doesn’t drop back down, instead she fires away with an elbow to the ribs!
Starr: And quickly Cailin fires back driving the boot across the side of Aria’s head, driving her back to the canvas and keeping it there, squashing her skull between it and the canvas! But Aria is near the ropes and manages to force a break and the referee intervenes to pull Cailin off. Aria tries to pull herself to her feet with the ropes as Cailin swoops in to pick her up and connect with a knife edge chop! Aria rolls across the ropes into the corner and Cailin swiftly follows it up with another chop that echoes throughout the arena! Aria drops her head but Cailin follows it up with a European uppercut and wastes no time! She Irish whips Aria across the ring into the opposite corner of the ring and follows it up with a running big boot! Aria slumps onto the second turnbuckle but Cailin drags her back out to the middle of the ring! CAILIN SIGNALS FOR THE END AS SHE LOCKS ARIA UNDER THE ARM; LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH THE TEXAS TWISTER!!!! SHE TURNS BUT ARIA BLOCKS IT AND WRAPS THE ARM UNDER THE THROAT! ARIA PULLS HERSELF UP AND AROUND!! THE PINKPRINT! YES SHE CONNECTS WITH THE BACKBREAKER! THE PINKPRINT CONNECTS! WHAT A REVERSAL, NOW IT’S THE CHALLENGER DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO STAY ALIVE IN THIS CONTEST AS ARIA WILLS HERSELF TO MAKE THE PIN BUT LIKEWISE SHE CAN ONLY DROP THE ARM ACROSS THE CHEST!
OOONNEEEE!!!! TTTWWWWOOOO!!!!! TTTHHHRRREEEEEEE!!!!
SG1: I CAN’T BELIEVE IT, THE CHAMPION KICKS OUT! ARIA ROLLS AWAY WONDERING WHAT SHE MUST DO TO PUT CAILIN DILLON DOWN FOR GOOD. CAILIN TRIES TO PULL HERSELF UP BUT CAN’T, SHE FALLS BACK TO THE CANVAS AND WE HAVE TO ASK, WHO HAS ENOUGH GAS LEFT IN THE TANK? WHO HAS ENOUGH DROPS LEFT TO GET THEM JUST ONE MORE MILE? SO EVENLY MATCHED, BOTH WOMEN REFUSING TO LEAVE COPENHAGEN DEFEATED. IT’S ABOUT PRIDE, IT’S BRAGGING RIGHTS; WHO IS THE BETTER WOMAN? BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, IT’S ALL FOR THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!! CAILIN MANAGES TO PULL HERSELF BACK TO HER KNEES AND ARIA SWIFTLY SWOOPS IN AND CONNECTS WITH THE HURRICANRANA DRIVER! CAILIN ROLLS AWAY REELING FROM THE IMPACT AND DESPERATELY TRIES TO CLIMB BACK TO HER FEET! CAILIN COMES FLYING BACK LOOKING FOR A LARIAT BUT ARIA DUCKS AND HITS THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH THE SLING BLADE!! PLANTING CAILIN BACK ONTO THE CANVAS! BUT CAILIN IS REFUSING TO STAY DOWN, SHE STAGGERS BACK TO HER FEET ALMOST DISORIENTED, STRUGGLING TO FIND HER BALANCE BUT DROPS BACK TO A KNEE AND ARIA WASTES ZERO TIME, CONNECTING WITH THE SLIDING KNEE!
Starr: THE EYES OF CAILIN DILLON PAINT A PICTURE WORDS A THOUSAND WORDS. SHE FEELS THE TITLE SLIPPING AWAY AS ARIA GIVES HER NO REPRIEVE! SHE DRAGS CAILIN BACK TO HER FEET BY THE TIGHTS AND LOCKS HER IN FOR THE BRAINBUSTER! ARIA LIFTS CAILIN UP BUT CAILIN FIRES AWAY WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE! ARIA DROPS CAILIN BACK TO THE CANVAS BUT KEEPS THE SUPLEX POSITION LOCKED IN! SHE TRIES A SECOND TIME BUT AGAIN CAILIN CONNECTS WITH A KNEE! ARIA TRIES FOR A THIRD TIME BUT INSTEAD SHOVES CAILIN OFF LOOKING FOR A FACEBUSTER! BUT CAILIN LANDS ON HER FEET… CONTRACT KILLER! THE SUPERKICK FROM ARIA JAXON CONNECTS AND AGAIN SHE PULLS CAILIN IN FOR THE BRAINBUSTER! SHE LIFTS HER UP AND SPIKES HER ON THE HEAD! RAGS TO RICHES CONNECTS! ARIA RISES BACK TO HER FEET, HER FISTS CLENCHED AS SHE FEELS THIS IS IT! ARIA EXITS THE RING AND SLOWLY MAKES HER WAY UP TO THE TOP.
SG1: I CAN FEEL IT STARR! THIS CROWD CAN FEEL IT! EVERYONE IS ON THEIR FEET!
Starr: ARIA STANDS ON THE TOP ROPE, CALM AND COLLECTED AS CAILIN STRUGGLES TO GET TO HER FEET; SHE HAS NO IDEA. ARIA FLIES THROUGH THE AIR, TWISTING AND TURNING!!! CALIFORNIA CRUSH!!!! BUT NOBODY IS HOME AS CAILIN TELEGRAPHED THE STUNNER AND STEPPED OUT OF THE WAY. ARIA CRASHES ON THE CANVAS BUT RACES BACK TO HER FEET….
SG1: EYES OF TEXAS!!!!!!!!!!! BUT THE SUPERKICK IS BLOCKED! FEAR SHOOTS THROUGH THE EYES OF CAILIN DILLON AS ARIA CATCHES THE BOOT AND SPINS CAILIN RIGHT AROUND! SHE CONNECTS WITH THE REVERSE STO! PLANTING CAILIN FAST FIRST ONTO THE CANVAS AND SHE IMMEDIATELY ROLLS INTO THE KOJI CLUTCH! DEAD CENTER OF THE RING AND CAILIN HAS NOWHERE TO GO.

CAILIN DOING ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING TO REACH IT; SHE MUST IF SHE WANTS TO RETAIN, HER TITLE HANGS IN THE BALANCE! SHE REACHES OUT……..BUT ARIA CINCHES THE HOLD IN MORE AND MORE! CAILIN CAN’T REACH THE BOTTOM ROPE!!
Starr: WAIT A SECOND! THE REFEREE WAS JUST PULLED FROM THE RING. CAILIN CAN’T TAKE IT AND SHE TAPS BUT THERE’S NO REFEREE! NO NOT LIKE THIS COME ON!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: WHO THE–
Starr: OH MY GOD, IT’S STEPHANIE MATSUDA! SHE WAS THE THIRD MEMBER OF FORMATION….BUT…WHY?
(Aria releases the hold and quickly realises what’s happened. Joy turns to anger as she stares down Cloud)
Starr: WAIT FROM BEHIND! IT’S MAO ICHIMICHI! MAO WITH A CLUBBING BLOW TO THE BACK OF ARIA’S HEAD AND NOW SHE’S JUST STOMPING AWAY AT THE MIDSECTION OF ARIA JAXON! STEPHANIE SLOWLY ENTERS THE RING AND BEGINS TO JOIN HER! ARIA TRIES TO DO HER BEST TO COVER UP BUT STEPHANIE DROPS TO A KNEE AND CHANGES TO STIFF RIGHT SHOTS. STEPHANIE CLIMBS BACK TO HER FEET AND DRAGS ARIA WITH HER BUT ARIA COLLAPSES TO A KNEE.
(Stephanie Matsuda drops to her haunches to be at eye level with Aria with a grin across her face)
SG1: Aria Jaxon just went through an absolute war with Cailin Dillon, she can barely stand at this point. This entire arena has been brought to silence BUT STEPHANIE DRAGS ARIA BACK TO HER FEET AGAIN; STEPHANIE RAISES HER FIST BUT ARIA CAN’T EVEN PULL IT TOGETHER TO DEFEND HERSELF AND STEPHANIE JUST TOSSES HER THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE! ARIA COLLAPSES ON THE OUTSIDE AS REFEREES AND THE RINGSIDE MEDIC CHECK ON HER.
(Cailin slides back into the ring with her Women’s World Championship in hand and cautiously approaches Stephanie)
Starr: Cailin Dillon offers her hand with a smile across her face, I guess there’s still a bond left from the Formation days– STEPHANIE DECKS CAILIN WITH A STIFF FOREARM AND DRAGS HER BACK TO HER FEET! SHE HOOKS BOTH ARMS! OH MY GOD! SPECIAL DELIVERY! PACKAGE PILEDRIVER SPIKING CAILIN ON THE BACK OF HER NECK, ALMOST FOLDING HER IN HALF! WHAT A STATEMENT STEPHANIE MATSUDA HAS MADE TONIGHT! FORGOTTEN PERHAPS? FORGOTTEN NO MORE, SHE’S JUST LAID OUT HER FORMER STABLEMATES!
(Mao proceeds to hand Stephanie the Women’s World Championship. She holds it into her palms for a moment and her grin grows wider as she raises it above her head. She stares down at Cailin who clutches at the back of neck before focusing on the title above her head as the camera fades to commercial)
( Reasonable Doubt Commercial )
(Our break ends as we return to ringside.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the EAW Hardcore Championship!
(Iron (Mystery Jets Remix) by Woodkid plays as Jon McAdams makes his way to the ring with Mike Showman by his side. The two stop at the stage and begin to conversate while the crowd boo.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger! From London, England, weighing in at 199 pounds…..JOOOONNNN MCAAAADDAAAAMMMSS!!!
WWEFan: Woah! Jon McAdams is asking for Mike Showman to head to the back! This is serious business for him. McAdams has been known to proudly use the number’s game to his advantage but it seems he has had a change of heart after thinking it over this week. Jon McAdams is more than capable of holding his own in the ring, he may be one of the people with class but what he does in that ring is not classy at all, it is ugly, it is physical and it is relentless. All of that will be taken to another level I’m sure with the chance to regain the title he believes should still be in his camp!
(IBenji – Hellraiser. As soon as that theme plays the lights in the arena go out and a red spotlight hits the stage. Maero steps out onto it and holds up his Hardcore Championship while he takes off his mask.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, the champion! Making his way to the ring from Sydney Australia, weighing in at 175 pounds, he is the EAW Hardcore Champion……MAAAAERRROOOO!!!
Kawajai: Watching the evolution of our champion Victor Maero has been a thing of beauty and a proud moment for me as an announcer. We’ve watched this guy go from the new kid on the block, to hard on his luck Elitist, to top prospect and Hardcore title holder. Season 10 has been a season of rebuilding for Maero, after paying his dues he he has now laid the foundation for a successful career here, but that could be ruined as he is threatened with former champion McAdams who is looking to do whatever it takes to destroy that foundation!
(Victor Maero hands off the Hardcore title to the referee as he puts it away and then signals for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: Jon McAdams RUSHES Maero, attacking him before he can even put away his entrance attire! Heavy handed blows to the back of the head as Maero is covering up to defend himself…..Jon McAdams with a hip toss to get Maero out of that corner and then getting in a mounted position for even more shots to the face. Maero is turning over but Jon McAdams is still on him, getting him in a waist lock and lifting him up! Maero reaches back with his hand and grabs McAdams by the head….flipping McAdams over with a snapmare! Jon McAdams is quick to return to his feet where Victor Maero is waiting for him to take him back down with a back elbow to the face! Jon McAdams can’t even get to a knee now before Maero comes at him with a clothesline! Jon McAdams now rolls out of the ring to get away, landing on his feet as he falls out but before he can walk off for some distance, Maero grabs the ropes and goes flying with a pescado to the floor!
Kawajai: Victor Maero is taking the fight to Jon McAdams on the floor here but hey! Jon McAdams manages to get past the guard of Maero and bring him off of his feet with a takedown as his head bounces off of the ground! McAdams keeps a hold of those legs of Maero’s and then falls back, catapulting Maero into the steel ring post! Maero is left in a daze now as McAdams kicks him in the gut and delivers a snap suplex! With Maero temporarily out of commission McAdams can now flip over the ring tarp and search under the ring for some toys! He digs his hand around and pulls out….
WWEFan: A trash can! He lifts it up and over Maero’s head it goes! McAdams then presses it up against his face as he sits Maero up on the steel barricade….he walks away to gather momentum, breaks out into a sprint….RUNNING KNEE INTO THE TRASH CAN, SMASHING IT UP AGAINST MAERO’S FACE! Those jagged edges stabbing Maero all over! McAdams then motions for the referee to come outside as he pulls Maero out from behind that trash can and covers him! McAdams looking to take advantage of the falls count anywhere rules that come with the Hardcore title!
Kawajai: KICKOUT BY MAERO! McAdams doesn’t even wait for him to get up before catching him with a penalty kick to the rib cage! Maero is then picked up and powerbombed onto the ring apron! Man, what an impact! Maero clutches at his back as he tries to stand himself up. Meanwhile McAdams is hovering over him with his arms open, ready for Maero to get up so he can deliver his next move! Maero starts to rise and so McAdams clocks him with a heavy european uppercut to the jaw! McAdams winds up for a second which makes an even nastier sound upon impact, glazing over the eyes of our Hardcore Champion!
WWEFan: Maero drops to his knees as McAdams places him in a cravat and cranks that neck of his, twisting it as Maero has to push him away! But McAdams runs back to him! OH! MAERO SPEARS HIM! DOWN MCADAMS GOES AS HE BUMPS INTO THAT TRASH CAN ON THE WAY TO GROUND! Maero grabs the retreating McAdams by the tights and reels him back in! He has him in his clutches, looking for what appears to be a back suplex! Wait, no, Maero has McAdams up and drops him crotch first onto the crowd restraint! McAdams shouting in pain as Maero is looking pretty amused with himself! Maero grabs a drink from a fan and pours it over the head of the defenseless McAdams! Maero is starting to have fun here!
Kawajai: He grabs the lid from that trash can McAdams introduced into the match and tosses it right at him! BUT JON MCADAMS CAUGHT IT! Hang on! Maero jumps up onto the apron, springs off of the middle rope and LAUNCHES HIMSELF AT MCADAMS WITH A DROPKICK, PUSHING THAT LID INTO MCADAMS FACE AND KNOCKING HIM OFF OF THE GUARD RAIL! Maero then picks up Jon McAdams and Irish whips him into the time keeper’s area, crashing into the equipment! Our ring announcer moves out of his seat as fast as he can and Maero takes that chair and folds it up, cracking it over the back of McAdams! He is letting it into him! McAdams is getting away from there with Maero hot on his tail throwing shots his way!
WWEFan: McAdams hops onto the apron and crawls into the ring! Maero tosses that steel chair into the ring and looks to get in himself to continue his assault against McAdams! He steps through the ropes — AND OUCH! MCADAMS KICKS UP AT THE ROPES, GETTING MAERO BELOW THE BELT, RETURNING THE FAVOR FROM EARLIER! MAERO FALLS INTO THE RING FAVORING HIS GROIN AS MCADAMS GOES ON THE ATTACK, TAKING HIS HANDS AND BEGINNING TO CHOKE THE LIFE OUT OF MAERO! He bangs the head of Maero against the mat as he does so and then forces him up, throwing in a slap to the face for good measure! And then a knee to the midsection!
Kawajai: Maero is kneeled over as McAdams pulls him in by the hand! BRAAAAAIIIINNNNNBBUUUUSTEEERRRR!!! McAdams wastes no time in getting on him and hooking the leg!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEE….TWOOOOOOOOO…TH —
Kawajai: Maero kicked out! Maero is rolling over toward the ropes to use them to bring himself up to his feet, Maero sees McAdams from the corner of his eye and so he charges at him — but McAdams telegraphs it and delivers a drop toe hold to Maero, leaving him to go crashing into that steel chair! McAdams then hits a leg drop to the back of the head to keep him down before rolling out of the ring, heading to the time keeper’s area and grabbing ANOTHER steel chair which he tosses into the ring! He now goes underneath the ring and starts digging around for even more weapons while Maero is still stirring! A singapore cane! A bag of what we can only presume to be thumbtacks! And uh oh, here we go — A ROLL OF BARBED WIRE! Things are about to get bad!!
WWEFan: Jon McAdams pushes all of these objects in as he gets ready to come in himself. Jon McAdams looks to enter the ring — but Maero kips up and kicks him in the jaw, stunning him while he is halfway into the ring! Maero has McAdams hung over the rope as he places him between his knees, lifts him up….AND THEN SPIKES HIM RIGHT ON THE CROWN OF HIS HEAD WITH A PILEDRIVER! That was a terrible landing, look at the way McAdams turned over and clutched at his neck! Maero isn’t even done either! He takes that chair McAdams put him on top of and places it under McAdams’ head!
Kawajai: Maero then grabs that second chair McAdams just introduced to the ring and clutches it to his chest as he heads to the apron and climbs up to the top rope! Maero has perched himself up there….AND GOES FLYING WITH A SPLASH RIGHT DOWN ON THE HEAD OF MCADAMS! MCADAMS SANDWICHED BETWEEN THE STEEL CHAIRS! MAERO HOLDS THOSE CHAIRS DOWN ON JON MCADAMS, THE SHOULDERS ARE DOWN, IT’S A COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEE….TWOOOOOO…….THRRRRR —
WWEFan: Kickout by Jon McAdams! Jon McAdams turns over to catch his breathe and regain his composure as WOAH! The side of McAdams’ head is leaking pretty bad! His head was smashed in hard with that chair! Maero stands over him, watching his opponent freak out while he calmly stares and thinks about his next move. He holds the chair upside down and drives the edge of the it right into McAdams’ chest! He is now going back to that frenzy of steel chair shots he rained down on McAdams’ before! McAdams covering up for dear life! Oh! A kick to the shin of Maero, forcing him to take a knee! McAdams then rolls over to that singapore cane as he reaches for it! McAdams jumped onto that as if it was his lifeline, smiling as he has it in his hands and then SWINGS FOR THE FENCES WITH A SHOT TO THE HEAD! HE JUST BROKE IT OVER MAERO’S SKULL!
Kawajai: McAdams takes the split in half cane, places it on the mat, and then performs a sidewalk slam on Maero onto it, those splintered, broken up pieces of cane are jabbing Maero in the back! Maero lifts himself off of the mat as we see that it has torn away at the back of his shirt and was breaking skin! Maero pushes himself up to his feet and Jon McAdams backs away into the ropes, bouncing off of them to perform a spinning neckbreaker! McAdams then gets on top of him, shoving his forearm into Maero’s face and forcing the lateral press ; cover here!
Referee: ONEEEE… TWOOOO……
WWEFan: Maero lifts the shoulder up! McAdams gets up and stomps down on him while feeling at that wound on his head! He looks at his hand and it is covered in blood! McAdams shouts at the crew at ringside to get him a rag so he can wipe away the blood as they provide him with it! He cleans his face and then throws it down on Maero! That cut has made McAdams even more pissed! He turns to look at that roll of barbed wire and he walks up and grabs it with his bare hands, not even worrying about being gentle this time around as he angrily walks back toward Victor Maero with gritted teeth! He is standing behind Maero as he takes that roll of barbed wire….AND PLACES IT OVER THE HEAD OF MAERO! IT’S WRAPPED AROUND HIS HEAD AS MAERO IS STILL TOO GROGGY TO REACT STRONGLY ENOUGH!
Kawajai: Indeed, Maero is trying to fight it but in his state Jon McAdams overpowers our Hardcore Champion, delivers some forearms to the back, grips his waist, and MCADAMS SHOWING SOME INCREDIBLE STRENGTH AS HE LIFTS HIM UP IN ONE QUICK MOTION…..GERMAN SUPLEX! VICTOR MAERO WAS JUST DROPPED ON HIS HEAD WHILE THAT ROLL OF BARBED WIRE WAS WRAPPED AROUND HIS FACE! THE BARBED WIRE STABBING HIM IN THE HEAD WHILE MCADAMS KEEPS HIM DOWN AND BRIDGES THE ‘PLEX FOR A COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE….TWOOOOOOOOO…….THRRRRR —
WWEFan: VICTOR MAERO MANAGES TO SHIFT HIS BODY OUT OF THAT BRIDGE! Maero saving his reign for the moment but he is still in some serious trouble here though! That barbed wire is stuck in his hair and cutting at his face as he tries to pull it off, he is attempting to tear it away but it’s so dangerous to take off — there goes McAdams WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE TO THE FACE! Maero starts to shake in pain, rolling around with that barbed wire still on him! He finally gets it off of his head, slicing up his forehead in the process. McAdams is smiling with glee! He sees Maero on the ground struggling and motions to the crowd that this is about to be over! He’s calling for it! He rushes to that bag of thumbtacks, unties it and then empties it out onto the center of the ring!
Kawajai: McAdams picks Maero up as he is practically dead weight at this point, hardly knowing where he is! McAdams has him on his shoulders, looking to go for the — OH! Elbow to the head, catching McAdams right in the eye! Maero with a lucky shot there as it causes McAdams knees to shake! Maero with a second! McAdams loses his grip and drops Maero! Maero lands behind him and then backs away into the ropes to gather momentum so that he can charge at him — but McAdams scoops him right back onto his shoulders and THROWS HIM INTO THE TACKS!
WWEFan: NO! Maero lands on his feet! Maero jumps up! Enzuigiri to the back of the head! McAdams takes a knee and Maero grabs him! He drags McAdams toward the center of the ring and then walks off for momentum! MAERO TRANSPLANT! THE MAERO TRANSPLANT DELIVERED RIGHT ONTO THE THUMBTACKS! MCADAMS HAS DOZENS AND DOZENS OF STACKS POKING INTO HIS BODY AS HE IS IN SHOCK, HE IS NOW THE ONE SHIVERING! MAERO GETS ON TOP OF HIM AND HOOKS THE LEG! THE REFEREE GOES TO COUNT!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEE!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(IBenji – Hellraiser plays as Victor Maero gets off of Jon McAdams and remains resting on the ground, letting the referee place the belt on his chest as he holds it tightly.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner……AAANNNNDDDDDDD….STILL EAW HARDCORE CHAMPION……..MAAAAAERRROOOOOO!!!
Kawajai: A brutal end to a very brutal match! Jon McAdams may be a gentlemen but he sure was able to keep up with Victor Maero in the violence department, he really had our champion on the ropes there! That German suplex with the barbed wire — Gosh! Victor Maero surviving this by the skin of his teeth.
WWEFan: Victor is just coming to and is getting to his feet as he clutches at that Hardcore title, looking down on it like it’s his pride and joy…meanwhile someone is looking down on him from the rafters in our skybox! Ahren Fournier steps out and is looking from the audience as he was watching this match from there that whole time! He’s shouting for the attention of Maero as Maero is looking on, he is READY! These two seem to want this fight badly and I must say, I want it too! Maero and Ahren staring each other down! We’re going to have to take a break from ringside to clean this mess up but we’ll be back in a moment.
(The camera transitions backstage where Max A. Million is standing next to the medical room…)
Max A. Million: Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been waiting outside this door for hours now! Trying to get any information on the current condition of Tyler Parker! Latest news says Tyler Parker has been forced to retire due to a severe career ending concussion!
(Max A. Million knocks on the door several times… until an EAW official doctor opens the door and steps out)
Max A. Million: Oh, finally! Can we get an update on Tyler Parker?
EAW Doctor: I’m afraid I can’t give any further details opposed to what’s already known right now. Tyler Parker suffered a horrible concussion after receiving The Imperium onto the steel chair.
Max A. Million: Alright, well can we get any word from Tyler himself?
EAW Doctor: Tyler is not taking visitors at the moment. I’m sorry.
Max A. Million: Well… thank you for your time, I guess.
(The doctor nods, going back into to the room, leaving Max A. Million alone in the hallway, as the camera fades elsewhere…)
(Camera fades to the center of the ring where the ring announcer is standing.)
(“Right Between the Eyes” by Crobot hits as Lars Grier steps out on stage, donning a blue, black and white attire while looking downwards, water dripping from his head and shoulders. He looks up and utters “DESTROY” before walking down the ramp and sliding into the ring.)
Ring Announcer: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, from Cincinnati, Ohio, weighing in at 291 pounds… HE IS THE “MANIFESTATION OF DESTRUCTION…” LARSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS GRIIIIIIIIIERRRRR!!!
Pierre: DOMINANCE! Lars Grier is one of those guys who just straight up dominates! Lars earned this match here by defeating over a dozen other men in a match to determine the number one contender, and since then, he has been even more dominant in his approach to matches on Showdown. Tonight, weeks of build and hype culminates for Grier, and for…
(The lights go out as “Arguing with Thermometers” by Enter Shikari hits. Two beams of light strike on each side of the stage, and a final fifth one beams down in the center, revealing Ryan Marx. The beams of light alternate colors as he walks down the ramp, holding his championship over his shoulder.)
Ring Announcer: AND HIS OPPONENT! From London, England, weighing in at 260 pounds… HE IS THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION… RYANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN MARXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX!!!!
Cherish: And the hype also culminates for Ryan Marx. After defeating Rex McAllister for the New Breed Championship, Ryan Marx has what some may argue is an easy run. He has still continued to dominate opponents, which is to be expected, but it definitely seems that Lars Grier has struck more of a nerve with Marx as of late than other opponent before. I think that this match be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to exciting, and even I am excited to see how it unfolds!

GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS!
Cherish: Lars Grier rolls over on top of Marx and is hammering away with those right hands, and he quickly steps up as he runs off the ropes… AND LARS GRIER GOES FOR A BACK SENTON INTO THE MIDSECTION OF RYAN MARX!

Lars pulls him back towards the center of the the ring… AND RUNNING POWERSLAM CONNECTS AS MARX IS DRIVEN INTO THE CANVAS LIKE A NAIL INTO WOOD! LARS HOOKS A LEG!
Cherish: BUT MARX WITH AN EARLY KICKOUT! IT IS GOING TO TAKE MUCH MORE THAN THAT! Lars Grier is especially angered after such an early kickout, and he gets to his feet. Lars pulls Marx up and leans him against the ropes… AND OPEN PALM STRIKE TO THE CENTER OF HIS CHEST THAT ECHOES THROUGHOUT THE ARENA! THAT IS A CLEARLY VISIBLE HANDPRINT IN RED ON MARX’S CHEST! Lars takes a step back as Marx stumbles forwards… AND LARS WITH A BACK BODY DROP! AND THAT CONNECTS AS WELL AS MARX IS DOWN ON THE MAT IN SHEER AGONY!

HE DROPS AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
Cherish: BUT RYAN MARX WITH A SHOULDER UP YET AGAIN! WHAT RESILIENCE FROM THE CHAMPION! Lars Grier’s face says it all, he is frustrated and wants that championship DESPERATELY! Lars pulls Marx up and whips him into the ropes… AND LARS LEVELS HIM WITH A SHOULDER BLOCK! Marx is trying to get to his feet as quickly as possible… AND LARS RUNS OFF THE ROPES AGAIN! ANOTHER SHOULDER BLOCK CONNECTS AS RYAN MARX IS DRIVEN INTO THE MAT, STUNNED! Lars tosses Marx into the corner, and he takes a step back… AND LARS CHARGES!

BUT THIS TIME LARS SIDESTEPS AND MARX COLLIDES IN THE CORNER! Ryan stumbles backwards… RIGHT ONTO LARS SHOULDERS!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Arguing with Thermometers” by Enter Shikari hits as Marx is handed his New Breed Championship. He holds it tightly against his chest as the referee elevates his hand in victory.)
Ring Announcer: And your winner… AND STILL! EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION…. RYANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN MARXXX!
Cherish: AND THE TITLE DEFENSE GOES SWIMMINGLY! Ryan Marx had a pretty long time before he had to fight with that championship on the line, and he came out here and did more of what he does perfectly: Kick ass. Lars Grier definitely gave him a run for his money, and definitely displayed more resistance than many of Marx’s opponents prior, but in the end. The Philosopher found victory in his mind, and in reality.
(Camera transitions to backstage where crew workers, Officials, and other personnel are seen walking around, conversing and working on their jobs for the show)
???: Well, well, well…
(The camera pans to the left reveal an a smiling Drake Jaeger – dressed in his usual dark boots, dark tights, dark jacket, and with dark highlights in his hair – as he’s flanked by the women of The Harem)
Drake: Drake Jaeger has finally arrived at King of Extreme.
(An unsure Drake looks back at The Harem)
Drake: Extreme, right? Is it still Extreme? Elite? That sounds gay.
(Drake looks off into the distance again, shrugging)
Drake: Whatever, it’s one of the two. It’s got King sh*t. Anywho… You there!
(Drake dramatically points at a random crew worker, who takes notice, unsure if Drake is speaking to him)
Drake: Yes, you… Come.
(Drake dramatically gestures for the crew worker to come to him)
Crew Worker: I’m… I’m really busy–
Drake: Busy? Busy doing what? Fetching coffee? Making sure a bunch of needless crap is plugged in right? Sexual favors? Do I look like a give a sh*t what you’re busy doing? I’m the Inter–
(Drake looks back at The Harem)
(The girls of The Harem look at each other, confused. Drake sighs and looks back at the Crew Worker)
Drake: Well, I may not have the Title on me, but I’m the InterWire Champion.
(Several seconds of awkward silence pass as the Crew Worker says nothing)
Drake: InterWire Champion? Dynasty? Drake Jaeger? WRESTLER? ENGLISH? DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH?
Crew Worker: I’m sorry, I… I don’t really watch wrestling. I just work here as a–
Drake: You just work here as a Goddamn grunt! Who doesn’t watch wrestling?! Are you kidding me? Why are you even here?
Crew Worker: You said you wanted me to–
Drake: Begone! Get out of my sight, you underpaid piece of sh*t!
(The Crew Worker attempts to leave, only for Drake to rush up and stop him)
Drake: Wait, wait, wait! I… I’m sorry for what I said to you. You know, about you being an underpaid piece of sh*t. I was angry. Listen, I want this friendship to work out between us.
Crew Worker: Friendship?
Drake: You mean a lot to me. Now that we’ve settled our differences, I just want to know, man… Who am I facing tonight?
Crew Worker: Huh?
Drake: Who do I have a match with tonight? It’s not Moongoose again, is it? Not the golden tranny he hangs out with? I don’t remember who it is, but I’m here now, and I’m ready to beat their ass… Or ASSES. I’ll take em all. I’m the InterWire Champion, even if I don’t know where my Title is.
(The Crew Worker taps a passerby on the shoulder)
Crew Worker: Hey, who’s Drake Jaeger facing tonight?
Passerby: Doesn’t have a match.
(The Passerby walks off as the Crew Worker shrugs at a confused Drake)
Crew Worker: Sorry, dude, I don’t think you have a match.
(The Crew Worker walks off as Drake looks confused and disgusted)
Drake: Don’t have a match? DON’T HAVE A MATCH? I’m the InterWire Champion! I retired the Heart Break Boy! For a while! I retired the Heart Break Boy for a while! I was in Hexa-gun! Who the Hell do you think you are?! The Heart Break Boy gets a Goddamn match?! He lost! I read the results online! He lost! I should have been in the World Title match! Yeah, keep walking! This friendship is over! All I need is TJ! He’s gonna kick Jamie O’Hara’s ass tonight for cheating me out of the King of Elite Tournament! I don’t need you! I don’t need ANY of you!
(A livid Drake Jaeger tries to regain his composure, visibly deep in thought as the concerned Harem looks on)
Drake: … F*ck it, let’s hit up catering.
The Harem: YAY!!! DRAKE-SAMA! DRAKE-SAMA!
(Drake smiles and nods as he and The Harem walk off)
(A video package of Eclipse and Y2Impact’s war of words over the past few weeks appear. The video first shows Eclipse Diemos defeating Nasir Capitani to earn number one contendership, then seguing into Eclipse asserting that he will instill fear into The Machine and humanize Y2Impact once more. The clips then show Impact’s verbal blowback to Eclipse’s claims, his insinuation that he never “sold out” but instead “bought in” before last playing Eclipse whispering “Are you…. scared yet?” as the camera then pans to ringside)
Ring Announcer: The following match is scheduled for one fall and is for the E! A! W! CHAMPIONSHIPPPPP! Per Lance Hart’s orders, if EAW Champion Y2Impact gets disqualified in this matchup through any means, he will lose the EAW Championship!
Kawajai: This is put up or shut up for Y2Impact. No more snake in the grass.
(“You Are My Sunshine” by Alone hits as the entire arena is dim-lit on his walk down the ramp. He stares at no one in the crowd, his gaze fixed on the four-sided ring ahead of him. The crowd is completely silent and in awe)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from the Prescott Hills Sanatorium, Arizona… weighing in at 286 pounds… “THE FEAR INCARNATE” ECLIPSEEEEE DIEMOSSSSS!!!!!
Kawajai: Eclipse truly believes he can make The Machine fear again! And tonight he just may get the chance to show that.
WWEFan: Y2Impact didn’t get this far by listening to anybody else, let alone playing by their rules or standards, and that isn’t going to change here tonight. The question is if Eclipse can impose his will through force upon Y2Impact.
(The music dies down, then cutting into the middle of “Immortal” by Kid Cudi as Y2Impact walks down the ring with the EAW Championship to thunderous boos from the capacity crowd)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Seattle, Washington, weighing in at 226 pounds… HE IS THE E! A! W! CHAMPIONNN….”THE MACHINE” Y! 2! IMPACTTTTTTTT!!!!!!
Kawajai: Impact has a real brazen expression on his face. He is determined, and he claims to be fearless. Eclipse will put him to the test.
WWEFan: But it will be Eclipse Diemos who Y2Impact puts to the test? Look at these two staring at each other. You can’t sense anything from them. They’re completely at ease – the mark of great opponents.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Kawajai: This much-anticipated clash between juggernauts is underway! The EAW Champion Y2Impact and his opponent Eclipse meet in the middle of the ring, but it seems the two of them aren’t in any kind of rush to get things started, just kind of circling around one another and sizing each other up. Eclipse just menacingly stands in the same spot with that cold, callous look in his eyes while Impact circles around him. I’m not sure Impact is someone you want to turn your back on, but could it be that Eclipse Diemos is imposing his will on Y2Impact just by standing there? Has he gotten into Impact’s head? Certainly a mental advantage against The Quintessential Champion will be major in this matchup, but could that be what Impact wants Eclipse to think? There are so many moving pieces right here, it’s like a game of chess!
WWEFan: And now Impact finally stops circling Eclipse and meets him in the center of the ring head-on with a blank, bold expression written all over his face! Eclipse looks back at The Machine and laughs, neither of the two having thrown a punch or even locked horns yet! AND NOW IMPACT MAKES THE FIRST MOVE, A SLAP TO THE FACE OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS! IMPACT JUST SLAPPED THE TASTE OUT OF ECLIPSE’S MOUTH, BUT ECLIPSE POPS HIS HEAD RIGHT BACK UP, JUST LAUGHING AT IMPACT!
Kawajai: Impact then charges Eclipse into the corner, backing him against the turnbuckles and following through with headbutts to the midsection, but Eclipse appears totally unfazed! AND NOW ECLIPSE WITH AN ABSOLUTELY, DEVASTATING CRUSHING FOREARM SMASH TO THE BACK OF THE MACHINE! IMPACT THOUGHT HE HAD ECLIPSE PLASTERED IN THE CORNER, BUT THOSE MIDSECTION HEADBUTTS APPEAR TO HAVE LITTLE EFFECT AS ECLIPSE COMES DOWN ON IMPACT LIKE A BATTING RAM, SENDING THE EAW CHAMPION CRASHING TO HIS KNEES! WOW!
WWEFan: Impact immediately tries to draw himself back up to his feet, showing the strength and force of a machine – because he is THE Machine – but Eclipse Diemos is having none of it, pummeling his knees into the side of Impact’s head and his shoulder! Eclipse Diemos is connecting with stiff knee after stiff knee, and pretty soon Impact just isn’t going to be able to take anymore! Impact has to do something about his predicament immediately if he hopes to stand a fighting chance in this matchup! Eclipse is pulling The Machine back up to his feet, undoubtedly with wicked intentions in mind, and maybe he’s going for some type of powerbomb here as he forcibly lifts Impact back up to a vertical base – NO! MOTHER’S PRAYER! THIS EARLY?! THE SWINGING REVERSE STO CONNECTS! THE MOTHER’S PRAYER CONNECTS ON Y2IMPACT AND THE MACHINE IS IN A WHOLE WORLD OF TROUBLE RIGHT NOW AS ECLIPSE HOOKS IMPACT’S LEG FOR THE COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE….. TWOOOOOOOOOOO….. THRRR—–
Kawajai: AND IMPACT WITH A THUNDEROUS KICKOUT AT TWO-AND-A-HALF! WOW! ECLIPSE DIEMOS JUST USED A MOVE ON Y2IMPACT THAT FINISHES ANY OTHER WRESTLER, ANY OTHER MAN, BUT EVIDENTLY NOT THIS MACHINE! I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT WE’RE SEEING, FAN! FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS MATCHUP, YOU CAN SEE THE FAINTEST HINT OF EMOTION ON THE FACE OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS AS HE GAZES BACK AT THE REFEREE WHO SAYS THAT, YES, IT WAS A TWO COUNT! WOW!
WWEFan: Eclipse has hardly broken a sweat thus far in this matchup, so you better believe he’s still in the driver’s seat, but that kickout right there after what would have been a sure pinfall over virtually any other wrestler just attests to the physical AND mental fortitude out of EAW Champion! Eclipse apparently has no concerns about what Impact might do once he rises to his feet, aggressively yanking and manhandling the champion back up to his feet by the arm. Impact can barely think straight right now, but he’s defiantly looking into the eyes of Eclipse Diemos mouthing with all of his remaining energy that he is the champion! Eclipse is just holding him for amusement, exposing Impact to the audience as if the champion himself were a trophy! BUT IMPACT FINDS HIS FOOTING, AND A SMALL PACKAGE OUT OF NOWHERE!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOO… THRRRR—-
Kawajai: AND A KICKOUT BY ECLIPSE DIEMOS! THE ENTIRE CAPACITY CROWD JUST GASPED IN UNISON AS ECLIPSE NEARLY FOUND A WAY TO SNATCH DEFEAT FROM THE JAWS OF VICTORY, OR WAS THIS IMPACT PLAYING ROPE-A-DOPE ALL ALONG?
WWEFan: Nobody draws it up to get laid out by a guy’s finishing move early on! Use your head, Kawajai! Eclipse is immediately back up to his feet, but Impact meets him with a chop block to the back of the leg to sweep Eclipse off of his feet! Eclipse, the monster that he is, just seems to be casually rising back to his feet, totally unaffected by that chop block to the back of his leg, and The Machine is in utter disbelief right now! Eclipse Diemos seems to have an answer for virtually everything Y2Impact does, whereas Impact obviously had to change his plays and call an audible at the line after Eclipse completely tore apart his game plan from the get-go of this matchup!
Kawajai: AND NOW IMPACT MEETS ECLIPSE DIEMOS WITH A DROPKICK THAT SENDS ECLIPSE STAGGERING BACK AGAINST THE ROPES! IMPACT JUST CAN’T GET ECLIPSE DOWN THUS FAR! ECLIPSE BRIEFLY CLINGS TO THE ROPES AS IMPACT REGAINS HIS BREATH, BUT NOW ECLIPSE FINDS HIS FOOTING, CHARGING IMPACT OFF THE ROPES! ROOM 13! ROOM 13 TO A STANDING IMPACT – BUT NO, IMPACT SIDESTEPS THE ROOM 13 AT THE LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT, AND NOW ECLIPSE TURNS AROUND! EVISCERATION! EVISCERATION! THE EVISCERATION CONNECTS ON ECLIPSE DIEMOS, BUT ECLIPSE IS STILL ON HIS FEET! HIS ARMS ARE FLAILING BACKWARD AND IMPACT, NOR ANYONE IN THE CROWD RIGHT NOW, CAN BELIEVE THE SUPERHUMAN STRENGTH THEY’RE SEEING FROM DIEMOS RIGHT NOW! ECLIPSE’S ARMS ARE FLAILING BACKWARD, HIS EYES ARE GLAZED OVER! IMPACT SEES AN OPPORTUNITY AND NOW HE CHARGES DIEMOS! AND ANOTHER EVISCERATION TO ECLIPSE DIEMOS FINALLY SENDS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT, BUT DID IMPACT PERHAPS USE TOO MUCH OF HIS ENERGY? IMPACT COLLAPSES, UNABLE TO COVER ECLIPSE DIEMOS!
WWEFAN: DO IT, IMPACT! DO IT! IMPACT IS SCRATCHING AND CLAWING, MOUNTING EVERY BIT OF STRENGTH HE HAS AS HE INCHES NEAR ECLIPSE… AND IMPACT HOOKS THE LEG!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOO…. THRRRRR—-
Kawajai: AND A KICKOUT! A POWERFUL KICKOUT BY ECLIPSE DIEMOS JUST BEFORE THE COUNT OF THREE, AND IMPACT IS ABSOLUTELY LIVID RIGHT NOW, SMACKING HIS HANDS TOGETHER IN FRUSTRATION AS HE LOUDLY EXCORIATES THE REFEREE!
Impact (to referee): I’M THE CHAMPION, YOU UNDERSTAND ME? YOU GIVE ME THOSE COUNTS! I WILL BE SPEAKING TO YOUR MANAGER!
WWEFan: BUT IT’S ECLIPSE SNEAKING UP ON IMPACT FROM BEHIND TO WRENCH HIM IN A WAIST LOCK, AND IT’S IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! IMPACT LANDED BACK-FIRST ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, INCREDIBLE STRENGTH FROM ECLIPSE DIEMOS! IMPACT ONCE AGAIN COLLAPSES TO THE MAT AS HE CLUTCHES HIS LOWER BACK. JUST LOOK AT THE SINISTER SMILE ON ECLIPSE DIEMOS’ FACE RIGHT NOW! HE’S ENJOYING EVERY LITTLE BIT OF THIS, DOING ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING HE CAN NOT TO JUST BEAT IMPACT, BUT TO INSTILL FEAR INTO THE EMOTIONLESS MACHINE!
Kawajai: Eclipse forcefully drags Impact back into the middle of the ring to prevent any chance at a rope break, mockingly going for the pin on Impact with just a shoulder draped over his chest as Eclipse grins! The cover!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE… TWOOOOOOOOOOO
WWEFan: AND A KICKOUT BEFORE THE THREE COUNT BY IMPACT! This is where the unparalleled resiliency of Y2Impact shines through! Just last year he broke an endurance record in the Grand Rampage match he went on to win, and Impact is certainly showing his teeth again right here at King of Elite! Eclipse has obviously gained the upper-hand early on in this matchup with a series of possible near-falls over Impact and some shocking moves connected early on to prove that he’s not easily dealt with, but through everything, Impact endures! The question is whether he can keep it up as Eclipse now drags Impact by the arm, forcing him to get back to a vertical base once more! Man, it almost seems like Eclipse is intentionally playing with fire here!
Kawajai: Eclipse is deploying a “punch ’em in the mouth” strategy thus far. He’ll take his licks, but he’s gonna dish out punishment harder than he takes it! Eclipse now just absolutely DECKS Impact in the schnoz, and Impact just falls back in pain clutching his nose. Eclipse now tightly wrenches in a side headlock on the EAW Champion, not wanting to give him any breathing room, and now Impact tries to push Eclipse forward and up into the ropes, but to no avail as Eclipse has the headlock wrenched in too tightly, bring Impact down to his knees as Eclipse twists the champion like a pretzel! BUT IMPACT WITH A DESPERATION TAKEOVER SOMEHOW GRABS ECLIPSE BY THE NECK AND SENDS HIM COLLIDING BACK-FIRST WITH THE MAT! ECLIPSE IS STILL BARELY FAZED, ALMOST SEEMINGLY ENJOYING THE PAIN AS A TWINKLE SPARKLES IN HIS SADISTIC EYES! HE WANTS TO SHOW IMPACT FEAR!
WWEFan: Eclipse and Impact are both back to a vertical base simultaneously, the two locking eyes with one another, neither wanting to give way, and they’re getting into a good old-fashioned sparring match! A RIGHT FROM ECLIPSE DIEMOS SENDS IMPACT STAGGERING BACK AGAINST THE ROPES, BUT HE PUSHES FORWARD USING THE MOMENTUM FROM THE ROPES TO DELIVER A POWERFUL RIGHT TO ECLIPSE DIEMOS IN RETALIATION! ECLIPSE WITH A LEFT TO THE TEMPLE OF Y2IMPACT THAT SENDS HIM LURCHING BACK AGAINST THE ROPES WITH FORCE, AND NOW IMPACT CHARGES ECLIPSE WITH A LITTLE EXTRA SOMETHING IN HIS STEP! NO! NO! ECLIPSE SCOOPS IMPACT UP AS HE CHARGES AND JUST HOLDS HIM IN THE AIR, LOOKING AT THE CROWD WITH THAT MANIACAL EXPRESSION ALL OVER HIS FACE, NOW DROPPING IMPACT WITH THE FALLAWAY SLAM! AND A PINFALL ON THE FOLLOW-THROUGH! NEW CHAMPION!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOOOO….THRRRRR—-
Kawajai: AND IMPACT WITH THE KICKOUT!!! NO MATTER WHAT ECLIPSE BRINGS, NO MATTER HOW VICIOUS AND AGGRESSIVE AND PHYSICALLY IMPOSING THE SANATORIUM PATRIARCH IS, LIKE A LOYAL DOG, IMPACT JUST KEEPS COMING BACK FOR MORE!
WWEFan: And what’s this?! Now Eclipse is looking over… Looking over to the ropes?! Is Eclipse going to airborne? An unextremely uncommon sight to see a man of Eclipse’s size attempt ANY aerial attack, but if there was any one match to pull out all of the stops, this would be it! Eclipse cavalierly walks on over toward the ropes, now slowly climbing to the second rung after which he stares back at the fallen EAW Champion laid out in the middle of the ring. Eclipse isn’t going to risk it by going up to the top rope, and to be honest I think that’s smart, Kawa – men of that size were simply not born to fly!
Kawajai: AND NOW ECLIPSE LEAPS FROM THE SECOND ROPE FOR A LEGDROP ON Y2IMPACT! AND IT CONNECTS! NO! NO! IMPACT MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! AT THE VERY LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT, WITH NOT A SECOND TO SPARE, IMPACT ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND I CAN TELL FROM THE GRIMACE ON ECLIPSE’S FACE THAT HE MAY HAVE JUST TWEAKED SOMETHING IN HIS CALF AREA! ECLIPSE CATCHES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BUT MAT AS IMPACT MAKES POSSIBLY THE SAVE OF THIS ENTIRE MATCH!
WWEFan: The stipulation that Impact will lose the title if he is disqualified hasn’t played a big factor thus far, but you have to wonder at what point Impact will dive into his bag of tricks? Impact now is slowly making his way back up to his feet, struggling for breath after just narrowly managing to avoid that colossal second-rope Leg Drop from Eclipse Diemos. Impact wraps his arm around the ropes for leverage to yank himself back up to his feet, but meanwhile you see Eclipse Diemos kind of holding his calf in pain – but you never know with a competitor like that. Could he be playing possum? Impact now feasts his eyes on Eclipse and he immediately attacks that injury as Eclipse wobbles back up to his feet, striking Eclipse in the calf repeatedly with closed fists! Impact is now being warned by the referee of a potential disqualification, causing him to become a little bit more reserved as he worries about a disqualification costing him his most prized possession for maybe the very first time.
Kawajai: Eclipse is gritting his teeth! He really doesn’t care in the slightest about the pain that he’s experiencing right now, all he wants is that championship! All he wants is to create The Outcast Voltage and he’s going to have to take Y2Impact’s mantle to do it! That’s the biggest task in the business, but NO ONE is more well-equipped than Eclipse Diemos right now on Voltage, and he’s absolutely laying everything on the line right here! Impact is throwing everything at Eclipse, punching and kicking his injured calf repeatedly, trying to gain any form of an advantage that he possibly can!
WWEFan: And now Impact has wrenched Eclipse’s arms back while pressing his knee against Eclipse’s back, applying a world of pressure, but Eclipse isn’t even screaming! Impact is pulling out everything in his arsenal to defeat Eclipse Diemos, every little trick that he’s learned over the years, and STILL Eclipse Diemos keeps fighting! Impact releases the hold and quickly follows it up with a stiff kick to the back of Eclipse Diemos! Diemos is slowly making his way up to his feet whilst still holding that injured calf, but he’s nonetheless wearing a confident expression on his face! You can see from the look in his eyes that he really believes he can pull this out! Eclipse is up, and Impact is just waiting for him like a predator as Eclipse turns around… EVISCERATION!!! IMPACT GOES FOR THE EVISCERATION AND IT CONNE-NO!!! NO!!! ECLIPSE THROWS IMPACT OFF OF HIM RIGHT AS IMPACT WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF HITTING HIM WITH HIS SIGNATURE EVISCERATION DOUBLE KNEE FACEBUSTER, AND NOW ECLIPSE CHARGES AFTER IMPACT! ROOM 13! ROOM 13!
Kawajai: THE ROOM 13 CONNECTS ON Y2IMPACT AND I THINK THE EAW CHAMPION MAY BE UNCONSCIOUS! THAT MAY BE THE BALLGAME… BUT ECLIPSE IS STILL STRUGGLING TO GET THE COVER ON IMPACT, STILL HOLDING HIS CALF, AND THAT MAY BE IMPACT’S SAVING GRACE IF HE SOMEHOW, SOME WAY MANAGES TO KICK OUT AFTER THAT DEVASTATING ROOM 13 KICK FROM ECLIPSE DIEMOS! IT’S TAKING ECLIPSE TOO LONG TO COVER IMPACT, IT’S BEEN JUST A MATTER OF SECONDS BUT FIVE TO SIX SECONDS MAY BE TOO LONG TO CONQUER THE MACHINE… AND ECLIPSE HAS A SHOULDER DRAPED OVER IMPACT! IS THERE GONNA BE A NEW CHAMPION?!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO…. THRRRRRRR—–
WWEFan: AND A KICKOUT BY Y2IMPACT!!!!!!! THAT IS THE EAW CHAMPION, FOLKS! THAT IS THE HEART OF A CHAMPION BEING SHOWN IN REAL LIFE, AND THIS CAPACITY CROWD IS ALL BEARING WITNESS TO LEGEND IN THE FLESH!
Kawajai: Kiss his ass some more, why don’t you?
WWEFan: Gladly! That is the CHAMPION, Kawajai, and you will treat him with some respect! Look at the sheer disbelief on the face of The Fear Incarnate Eclipse Diemos as he is just repeatedly unable to put Y2Impact away! Eclipse Diemos, the man who holds fear near and dear to him, may now be drowning in its depths as he tries to topple over the deadliest prey that he has encountered in his career in EAW!
Kawajai: Listen up, Impact is on life support here and, barring a miracle, Eclipse has a clear path! Eclipse now beats the side of Impact’s head, just pummeling him relentlessly all the while showing zero remorse whatsoever for his actions, and now Eclipse whips Impact off the ropes, setting up something major! Impact rebounds off the ropes and Eclipse catches hi-NO! IMPACT WITH THE FLYING FOREARM SMASH, BUT WHAT’S THIS?! ECLIPSE STAGGERS BACK AND HIS MOMENTUM RESULTED IN HIM COLLIDING WITH THE REFEREE! THE REFEREE IS NOW INCAPACITATED! THIS IS GOING TO BE ALL-OUT WARFARE AND IF IMPACT CAN LEVEL ANY SORT OF OFFENSE, AS MUCH AS I HATE TO SAY IT, THIS IS HIS EXTREME DOMAIN RIGHT NOW! ECLIPSE’S HEAD SNAPPED BACK INTO THE REFEREE IN A WHIPLASH-LIKE SEQUENCE, AND HIS EQUILIBRIUM IS FRAYED RIGHT NOW! IMPACT HAS JUST ENOUGH ENERGY TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING, AND HE’S GRABBING A STEEL CHAIR… HE’S GRABBING A CHAIR FROM UNDER THE RING AND IMPACT THEN PROCEEDS TO BRING IT BACK IN THE RING WITH THE MOST SMUG GRIN THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN! SON OF A BITCH! IMPACT IS SIZING ECLIPSE UP, HAS THE CHAIR, AND HE REARS IT BACK… A CHAIRSHOT TO THE HEA-ECLIPSE! ECLIPSE HAS THE CHAIR IN HIS HAND! ECLIPSE THROWS THE CHAIR DOWN AND CONNECTS ON THE FOLLOW THROUGH! MOTHER’S PRAYER! ANOTHER MOTHER’S PRAYER CONNECTS OUT OF NOWHERE AND IMPACT IS ABSOLUTELY LAID OUT, AND ECLIPSE WITH THE COVER! NEW CHAMPION!
WWEFan: There’s no referee! There’s no referee! The refere is incapacitated and the crowd is now all counting in unison as Eclipse covers Impact….
Crowd: ONEEEE…. TWOOOO… THREEE…. FOURRRR… FIVEE… SIXXX…. SEVENN…. EIGHT….NINEEEEE
Kawajai: ECLIPSE WOULD HAVE IMPACT PINNED THREE TIMES OVER IF THE REFEREE WASN’T KNOCKED OUT! WHAT A PREDICAMENT HE HAS FOUND HIMSELF IN! ECLIPSE NOW PUSHES HIMSELF UP AND OFF IMPACT, SHAKING THE REFEREE BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AND NOW ECLIPSE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, SIGNALING FOR ANOTHER REFEREE TO COME BACK INTO THE RING. ECLIPSE IS WALKING UP THE RAMP… AND THERE’S THE REFEREE! THE REFEREE AND ECLIPSE DIEMOS BOTH RUN DOWN TO THE RING AT WHAT LOOKS LIKE 4.3 SPEED FROM MY VANTAGE POINT, AND ECLIPSE IS NOW ROLLING BACK IN THE RING, STANDING UP TO HIS FEET! BUT IMPACT IS STIRRING! ECLIPSE TURNS AROUND, SEES IMPACT, AND NOW IMPACT WITH A KICK TO THE FACE TO DIEMOS OUT OF PURE DESPERATION THAT SENDS ECLIPSE COLLIDING INTO THE SECOND REFEREE, BACKING HIM INTO THE CORNER! THAT’S 286 POUNDS OF MAN MEAT RIGHT THERE, FAN! COME ON!
WWEFan: AND IMPACT WITH THE KIP-UP!!! IMPACT KIPS UP, BUT THERE’S ECLIPSE! HOLY HELL! THERE’S ECLIPSE MEETING IMPACT RIGHT AS HE KIPS UP! MOTHER’S PRAYER! AND A GAZE INTO THE EYES OF Y2IMPACT BEFORE HE EXECUTES HIS FINISHING MO-NO! IMPACT REVERSES IT, AND ECLIPSE IS GROGGY! IMPACT PICKS UP THE CHAIR AND THE REFEREE CAN’T SEE IT! NO! NO! IMPACT WITH A STEEL CHAIR SHOT OVER THE HEAD OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS, BUT DIEMOS IS STILL STANDING! IMPACT THROWS THE CHAIR TO THE OUTSIDE, THE SECOND REFEREE IS JUST REGAINING BALANCE… AND WHAT’S THIS?!?! IS THAT? COULD IT BE?!! IT IS!!!! ACROSS THE PARK! IMPACT CONNECTS WITH THE ROLLING CUTTER ON ECLIPSE DIEMOS, STRAIGHT OUT OF THE PLAYBOOK OF TYLER PARKER, THE ACROSS THE PARK!!! AND ECLIPSE IS ABSOLUTELY LEVELED AFTER THAT CHAIRSHOT ACROSS THE PARK COMBINATION! IMPACT WITH HIS FEET ON THE ROPES FOR LEVERAGE, THE REFEREE DOESN’T NOTICE, AND THE COUNT AS IMP HOOKS THE LEG!!!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE….. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…. THRRRRR—-
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Immortal” by Kid Cudi hits as Impact’s hand is raised in victory by the referee, but he is unable to get up of his own power, using the ropes for assistance before collapsing back to the mat again)
Ring Announcer: The winner of this match… and STILLLLL EAW CHAMPIONN…. Y!!! 2!! IMPAAAA—-
Kawajai: AND ECLIPSE IS UP! ECLIPSE IS UP BEFORE IMPACT, THIS MAN JUST WON’T QUIT! THE MATCH IS OVER BUT YOU CAN SEE THE HELL IN HIS EYES AS HE STARES BACK INTO IMPACT’S WITH A TERRIFYING INSCRUTABLE EXPRESSION! IMPACT IS STILL ON THE GROUND, JUST SMILING AT ECLIPSE AS HE POINTS TO THE TITLE HE WAS HANDED. ECLIPSE IS SUCKING AIR, BUT HE SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES… ROOM 13! THE ROOM 13 BOOT CONNECTS ON Y2IMPACT AND IMPACT IS JUST ABSOLUTELY LEVELED!
WWEFan: Eclipse didn’t need anybody’s assistance tonight and this match proved exactly that, but through being smiled upon by some deity no doubt, Impact walks away with the winner – but at what cost? He does not appear conscious as Eclipse stands over his body!
Kawajai: Eclipse Diemos will undoubtedly have another shot at this championship as Lance Hart is probably looking on in the back right now in disgust!
(“You Are My Sunshine” by Alone hits as an angry, furious Eclipse Diemos walks to the back, screaming “I WILL GET MY TITLE! I SAW FEAR! I SAW FEAR!)
(The camera transitions back into the arena, where it fixates itself on the throne, crown, and robe set up on the side of the ramp, then pans it way down past cheering fans, into the ring where the ring announcer and a referee stands)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, the following match is your main event match for the evening! AND IT IS FOR THE 2017 KING OF ELITE CROWN!!!…
(“SAIL” by AWOLnation blares throughout the arena, as Drastik enters the arena, wearing purple attire, to the crowd chanting “SAIL” — he takes a moment to gaze upon the throne and crown, before turning to make his way down to the ring)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Oakland, California, weighing in at 225 POOOOOOOOOOOOUNDSSSSSSS!!!!… DRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTIIIIIIIIIIKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!
Fan: HERE WE GO LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! THE MATCH YOU’VE ALL BEEN WAITING TO SEE IS ABOUT TO FINALLY HAPPEN! WE’RE HOPED YOU’RE AS EAGER AS US TO SEE THIS! Drastik is certainly is a threat to both O’Hara and Jones! He’s a veteran to this game and he knows what lengths he’ll have to go in order to be crowned king! It’s just the matter of timing everything correctly and ringing that crown home to Voltage!
Pierre: Pease, Fan! Stop trying to represent your Voltage scum talent! We all know that your management nearly forgot about Drastik to begin with! Some threat he is!
Stew: Am I going to be forced to listen to Pierre all night…?
(“The Mission” by Puscifer ft. Milla Jovovich hits as Tiberius Jones enters the booing arena, wearing Aladdin-esque attire, he also pauses on the stage to look at the throne, pointing at it, then makes his way down the ramp)
Ring Announcer: Introducing next, from Gaia, weighing in at 213 POOOOOOOOOOOUNNNNNNNDSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!… “THE KOMODO DRAGON” TIBERIUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSSSSSSS JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNESSSSSSS!!!!!
Pierre: YES! YES! YES! SHOWDOWN TALENT REPRESENT! THIS IS THE MAN THAT YOU’LL KISS THE FEET OF SOON ENOUGH! KING TIBERIUS! HE’LL MAKE YOU RUE THE DAY YOU DOUBTED HIM!
Stew: Did you just seriously say rue?
Fan: I don’t know why I bother… but Tiberius Jones has taken quite a few falls before getting here! He’s had multiple chances at becoming Answers World Champion, but this could very well be his way! He’s the youngest in this match, so I imagine his desire to succeed is surreal! I can surely say the fans do not agree with it though!
(“The Stage” by Avenged Sevenfold lares throughout the entire arena, and Jamie O’Hara walks out to deafening cheers, sporting black and white skull attire, he makes the “too sweet” taunt when looking at the throne, then doesn’t waste his time making his way down to the ring)
Ring Announcer: Introducing last, from Melbourne, Australia, weighing in at 241 POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUNNNNNNNDSSSSSSSSSS!!!… JAMIEEEEEEEEEEEEE O’HARAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew: YOU WANT TO SEE A REAL FAN FAVORITE, PIERRE? YOU’RE LOOKING RIGHT AT HIM! THIS MAN IS GOING TO BE THE KING OF ELITE! THE KING OF BULLETS! HE’S THE MAN THAT’S GOING TO BEAT YOUR MAN! AND VOLTAGE’S MAN! YOU WANT TO BE BIAS? I’LL BE BIAS!
Pierre: Pfft… we’ll see about that.
Fan: For once, I agree, let the events play out before we go all in!
(The referee checks on all three individuals in their corners, before calling for the bell…)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew: This highly anticipated King of Elite triple threat has finally begun! Drastik cockily approaches Jamie O’Hara and Tiberius Jones who are staring each other with such intensity behind the huge roar of the crowd! AND TIBERIUS JONES DARTS AT JAMIE O’HARA RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE! O’HARA MEETS HIM MIDWAY AND THE TWO EXCHANGE CLOSED FISTS WITH ONE ANOTHER! TARGETING EACH OTHER, BUT DRASTIK AMBUSHES TIBERIUS JONES FROM BEHIND WITH A STIFF RUNNING FOREARM TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! Tiberius Jones stumbles right into O’Hara’s clutches! And O’Hara reddens Tiberius’ chest with a stinging knife edge chop to the chest! Following it up with a stiff forearm! O’Hara pursues Tiberius, and Tiberius Jones turns and walks RIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK FROM DRASTIK! TIBERIUS JONES SIDESTEPS THE INCOMING SUPERKICK! AND THAT SUPERKICK LANDS RIGHT ACROSS THE JAW OF JAMIE O’HARA! O’Hara collapses to just one knee! AND DRASTIK GOES CHARGING AFTER O’HARA FOR A RUNNING KNEE TO THE SKULL! BUT TIBERIUS JONES CATCHES HIM MID-SPRINT FROM BEHIND… AND DROPS HIM WITH A SAVAGE OVERHEAD RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! SENDING DRASTIK BACKWARDS ACROSS THE RING! Tiberius Jones pushes himself back up to a vertical stance, BUT FROM BEHIND THERE’S O’HARA JUST WAITING FOR TIBERIUS!
Fan: O’HARA TAKES OFF IN A SPRINT AFTER TIBERIUS JONES! JONES TURNS AROUND! RUNNING DROPKICK! O’HARA HITS THAT SICK DROPKICK WITH THE FORCE OF A FREIGHT TRAIN! Tiberius Jones drops back into the ropes! O’Hara sizing him up for the perfect opportunity to hit something big here! Tiberius Jones bounces himself off the ropes, BUT O’HARA DARTS FULL FORCE STRAIGHT AT HIM! RIGHT INTO A SPINNING WHEEL KICK DELIVERED BY AN UNSUSPECTING DRASTIK! O’HARA EATS A MOUTHFUL OF DRASTIK’S BOOT! O’Hara looks dazed as ever! Tiberius Jones making a quick recovery, targeting Drastik as quickly as he rises back to both feet! Drastik eats a couple of clubbing blows right into Drastik’s head, but Drastik just manages to catch Tiberius by the arm! AND DRASTIK PULLS HIM RIGHT INTO AN UPLIFT KNEE! Jones groggily staggers backwards as he attempts to maintain his own balance! Drastik takes off against the ropes closely behind him! AND DRASTIK FLOORS JONES FROM BEHIND WITH A FALLING LARIAT TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! Tiberius head taking a huge blow there! Drastik keeping the pace in his favor, as he quickly glances over at O’Hara pulling himself back up using the ropes! Drastik gives O’Hara his immediate attention…
Pierre: Drastik approaches O’Hara and literally pulls him up by his beard! BUT O’HARA THRUSTS HIS HEAD FORWARD! BATTERING HIS FOREHEAD RIGHT INTO DRASTIK’S WITH A HEADBUTT! TWO HEADS COLLIDING MAKING A NOISE NO MAN OR WOMAN SHOULD EVER HEAR! Drastik releases the beard, but O’HARA WITH A SECOND VICIOUS HEADBUTT! That one powerful enough to send Drastik backwards a bit! O’Hara able to create enough room between the two! But not for long! Drastik rushes back at O’Hara! BUT O’HARA GRABS AND WHIPS DRASTIK BY THE ARM RIGHT INTO THE NEAREST CORNER! Drastik hits the turnbuckle with a thud! O’HARA GOES CHASING AFTER HIM! DRASTIK TRIES TO PREVENT WHATEVER IS COMING BY THROWING HIMSELF TO THE SIDE! BUT O’HARA REDIRECTS HIMSELF AND DROPKICKS DRASTIK RIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! Drastik takes a nasty fall to the outside! That could have seriously irritated the shoulder some! And it appears O’Hara is far from through here! He’s looking down at Drastik then directs himself over to the corner… O’Hara begins to climb up the ropes! TIBERIUS JONES FROM BEHIND! RUNNING ENZUIGIRI TO THE BACK OF O’HARA’S SKULL! THAT SENDS O’HARA HIMSELF TOPPLING OFF THE ROPES AND RIGHT ONTO DRASTIK WHO WAS JUST MANAGING TO GET BACK ONTO HIS FEET!
Stew: Tiberius Jones finds himself to be the only man left standing inside the ring! Both O’Hara and Drastik on the outside are struggling to get back to their feet! But Tiberius Jones cocks a grin on his face, looking down at the two slowly rising to their feet! AND TIBERIUS JONES HITS THE ROPE JUST LIKE THAT! HE FLIES ACROSS THE RING AND THROUGH THE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE RIGHT ONTO O’HARA! DRASTIK JUST BARELY ABLE TO AVOID TAKING THE FORCE OF THAT AMAZING SUICIDE DIVE! Tiberius Jones gets only to a knee, taking his time to recover from the damage he had to have taken also when executing such a move – but look! Drastik eyes Tiberius up and down, Tiberius completely unaware of Drastik’s whereabouts! DRASTIK TAKES OFF IN A HURRY! SPRINGING OFF THE APRON WITH ONE FOOT! HE NAILS TIBERIUS JONES WITH A SPECTACULAR CORKSCREW APRON ROUNDHOUSE KICK! JONES COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR! HE COULD VERY WELL BE OUT COLD! Drastik showcasing pure agility and speed! He desperately needs to get this match back inside the ring though! This would be the most opportune time to attempt a pin!
Fan: Drastik appearing very confident in himself as he lifts Tiberius Jones back up! BUT DRASTIK WASN’T EXPECTING O’HARA QUITE YET! O’HARA FROM BEHIND HOISTS DRASTIK UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS IN AN INVERTED FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION! AND DRASTIK IS STRUGGLING AND FIGHTING TO GET OFF HIS SHOULDERS! O’HARA GOING FOR SOMETHING TRULY SADISTIC HERE… AS HE ALIGNS HIMSELF WITH THE STEEL STEPS! O’HARA GOES RUNNING! OH MY GOD! INVERTED DEATH VALLEY DRIVER RIGHT ON TOP OF THE STEEL STEPS! DRASTIK’S HEAD LANDS VIOLENTLY DOWN ON TOP OF THE STEEL STEPS! O’HARA MAKING GREAT USE OF THE ENVIRONMENT AROUND HIM! O’Hara standing up with a wide smile across his face! You can see he enjoys all the advantages he’s just opened up for himself! He lifts Drastik up by the head and tosses him back into the ring! O’Hara slides into the ring alongside with Drastik! Drastik grabbing the back of his head in what I believe has to be excruciating pain! O’Hara scoops him up by his hair, dragging him slowly up to his feet! Drastik tries to fire off some sluggish like fists! BUT O’HARA WITH A SWIFT KNEE TO THE STOMACH!
Pierre: O’HARA TUGS AND PULLS DRASTIK IN! LIFTING HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! O’HARA TAKES OFF IN A HURRY! AND O’HARA DROPS DRASTIK ONTO THE COLD HARD CANVAS WITH A RUNNING SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! PUTTING SO MUCH STRENGTH INTO THE LANDING! O’Hara doesn’t bother going for a pin attempt, but instead maneuvers his way around to Drastik’s leg… POSITIONING HIMSELF, FOR YES… KNEE BAR! HE WRAPS HIS LEGS TIGHTLY AROUND HIS UPPER LEG AND STRETCHES THAT LEG AS FAR AS HE CAN GO! DRASTIK IS IN A HORRIBLE PREDICAMENT! O’HARA WRENCHES AND PULLS ON THAT LEG! DRASTIK SHOUTING IN PAIN! HE HAS LITERALLY NOWHERE TO GO! HE TRIES TO REACH OUT FOR THE ROPES, BUT THEY’RE TOO FAR AWAY! DRASTIK IS BEATING HIS FISTS INTO O’HARA, BUT BARELY PHASING HIM! AND WHAT?! O’Hara momentarily releases the hold, BUT FLIPS DRASTIK ONTO HIS STOMACH! GRABBING A FIRM TIGHT HOLD ON HIS RIGHT LEG! AND OH! REVERSE BOSTON CRAB! O’HARA TRANSITIONS THE KNEE BAR FOR THE SOUTHERN CRUCIFIXION! A QUITE BRILLIANT STRING OF SUBMISSION HOLDS BY O’HARA! DRASTIK FLAT ON HIS STOMACH, JUST SHAKING HIS HEAD LIKE A MADMAN! HE’S DEAD CENTER IN THE RING!
Stew: BUT HE’S ATTEMPTING TO DO EVERYTHING HE CAN TO BREAK OUT OF IT! HE’S USING THE PURE STRENGTH IN HIS ARMS TO PRY O’HARA OFF OF HIM! BUT O’HARA DOES NOT GIVE IN… HE’S USING UP PRECIOUS ENERGY! O’HARA IS JUST BENDING THAT LEG LIKE IT SHOULD NOT BE BENT! AND IF DRASTIK IS UNFORTUNATE ENOUGH, IT COULD VERY WELL SNAP! AND OH…? DRASTIK! DRASTIK LIFTS HIS HAND INTO THE AIR! COULD THIS BE THE END?! JONES! JONES! JONES!!! JONES SPRINGS OFF THE TOP ROPE! AND O’HARA TAKES THE BLATANT FORCE OF JONES BOOTS IN HIS FACE! JONES EXECUTING A MATCH SAVING SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK TO BREAK THE SOUTHERN CRUCIFIXION! JONES ENSURING THIS MATCH GOES ON JUST THAT MUCH LONGER! Drastik rolls onto the apron, grasping at his right leg! While O’Hara woozily attempts to stand back up! Oh, but… Jones?! Jones stands straight in front of O’Hara, cupping his hands backwards…
Tiberius Jones: KAMEEEE!!!!…
Stew: UH OH! THIS ISN’T GOOD! O’HARA STILL TRYING TO SHAKE THE COBWEBS!
Tiberius Jones: HAMEEEEEEE!!!….
Stew: O’HARA NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING FAST! OTHERWISE, HE’S IN A WORLD OF TROUBLE!
Tiberius Jones: HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
Stew: DOUBLE PALM THRUST, WHEN USUALLY TO THE CHEST, THIS TIME HE JABS O’HARA RIGHT IN THE FACE! THAT COULD HAVE BROKE O’HARA’S NOSE!
Fan: O’HARA DROPS LIKE A DIME! GRABBING AT HIS FACE! This gives Jones just enough time to… oh he can’t be! He is! Jones hops outside onto the apron and slowly ascends up the ropes! He’s taking a HUGE risk right here! I don’t know if this is the type of risk you’d want to take in a match like this! Jones makes it to the very top! And he’s standing tall and proud! O’Hara still aiding his face! JONES LEAPS HIGH INTO THE AIR OFF THE TOP ROPE! THE SWANTON BOMB! SWANTON BOMB… CONNECTS! HE LANDS THE SWANTON BOMB RIGHT ONTO THE AWAITING JAMIE O’HARA! THERE WAS NO AVOIDING THAT! Jones takes high risks and succeeds doing so! And Jones promptly kips back up onto both feet! He’s seriously feeling the momentum build right now! He viciously stomps away at O’Hara’s ribs! O’Hara taking one hell of a beating! Jones lifts him up, but whips him into the opposite corner! JONES SPINS RIGHT AROUND AND CHARGES AFTER HIM! O’HARA UNABLE TO DO ANYTHING, BUT TAKE A WILD RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT INTO THE CORNER! JONES CALLS THAT ONE THE SHORYUKEN!
Pierre: O’Hara groggily stumbles out of the corner, collapsing to a knee! JONES SPRINTS OFF THE ROPES ONCE AGAIN! BUT LOOK! DRASTIK, WITH A LIMP, CATCHES JONES IN THE MIDST OF RUNNING! JONES DRIVES A COUPLE OF ELBOWS INTO THE SIDE OF DRASTIK’S SKULL! BUT THAT DOES LITTLE TO NO GOOD! DRASTIK LEAPS OFF THE MAT! STANDING C4! THE STANDING C4 DRIVES JONES SPINE FIRST INTO THE MAT! Drastik rolls backwards right onto his feet! Joes lifts up into a seated position! BUT DRASTIK NAILS HIM IN THE HEAD WITH A NICE SPIN KICK!

Drastik forces himself back to a vertical base! AND DRASTIK TAKES OFF IN A SPRINT AGAINST THE ROPES AGAIN! PICKING UP ENOUGH MOMENTUM! FIGHTING THROUGH THE PAIN! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE – JONES BARELY AVOIDS IT! JUST BARELY! AND JONES KICKS BACK UP TO HIS FEET! Drastik spins around, BUT RIGHT INTO A SPINNING STIFF FOREARM FROM JONES! NO! DRASTIK DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE ARM! AND GRABS JAY FROM BEHIND…
Stew: ATTEMPTING A POSSIBLE URANAGE? JONES CATCHES HIM BY THE HEAD ON THE WAY DOWN! DDT? NO! GUILLOTINE CHOKE! JONES HAS DRASTIK TRAPPED IN A GUILLOTINE CHOKE! WITH HIS LEGS WRAPPED TIGHTLY WRAPPED AROUND DRASTIK’S WAISTLINE! BUT DRASTIK INSTINCTIVELY THROWS HIM BACKWARDS! AND OH! BRIDGING NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX TO COUNTER THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE! JONES WASTING NO TIME IN ARCHING HIS BACK TO PREVENT EVEN THE ONE COUNT FROM GOING THROUGH! He gets back up to his feet, both men wildly spin around to each other! AND DRASTIK CATCHES JONES WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SKULL! BUT JONES REFUSES TO FALL! JONES WOBBLES AROUND ON SPAGHETTI LEGS! AND THERE’S A SECOND ROUNDHOUSE KICK BRUTALLY CONNECTING OFF THE TEMPLE THIS TIME AROUND! JONES DROPS TO JUST A KNEE NOW! STILL FIGHTING THROUGH IT! Drastik is measuring Jones up! He’s got him exactly where he wants him! This is going to seriously hurt! A THIRD SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK – DISCUS ELBOW SMASH! O’HARA PIERCES DRASTIK IN THE HEAD WITH SUCH A SKULL SHATTERING DISCUS ELBOW OUT OF NOWHERE! And he immediately takes advantage of Jones current position! O’HARA SENDS JONES NOSE FIRST INTO THE RING MAT WITH A DOUBLE ARM DDT! O’Hara just willingly finds himself back in this match again!
Fan: These three men are giving it their absolute all to win this match! I don’t know what it’s exactly going to take to keep one down for a three count! Better yet make them submit! O’Hara’s exhaustively stands back to his feet, looking between the pair of Jones and Drastik! O’Hara trying to make a wise decision here! Notice how there’s been no falls in this match! They’re seriously waiting for the perfect time to end this match! And this could be it! O’Hara knows he has them in his clutches! He could do almost anything he wants now! He directs himself back over to Drastik! Drastik crawling on his hands and knees! O’Hara pulls him up! BUT DRASTIK TAKES NO TIME IN SWINGING A SHARP KNEE – O’HARA CATCHES IT! DRAGON SCREW! SWEEPING DRASTIK RIGHT OFF HIS FEET! O’Hara staying well aware of every movement of his opposition! Drastik scrambles back to his feet! BUT GOOD LORD!

O’Hara pulling out every single trick in his book to secure this victory!
Pierre: O’Hara rapidly turns his head back and forth between Drastik and Jones! He’s searching for an opportunity here! He decides to target — Jones! Jones who’s just made it back to his feet! O’Hara dictating exactly every single moment of this match right now! He lifts Jones up onto his shoulders! What’s he thinking?! Jones is fighting! Jones wants off his shoulders!

BUT IS FORCED TO WIPE AND RUB HIS EYES! JONES PROCEEDS TO RUN OFF THE ROPES, WHILE O’HARA IS FRANTICALLY TRYING TO AVOID WHATEVER HE EXPECTS NEXT! AND JONES REBOUNDS RIGHT BACK OFF! LOW DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF O’HARA’S LEGS! O’Hara falls back onto his knees! He’s still wiping away the green mist obscuring his vision! This is seriously not good! Jones back up! He’s right behind O’Hara and he’s distancing himself! JONES SOARS FORWARD AT O’HARA!!!!… STRIKE OF MIDNIGHT! THE STRIKE OF MIDNIGHT!

Jones kicks Drastik backwards! And Jones shuffles back to his feet! He’s furious! He almost had that crown in the palm of his hands! O’Hara rolls to the outside, demanding a bottle of water! As the ringside management only obliges! The two in the rig both throw themselves at one another AND THEY’RE EXCHANGING HARD BLOWS!

DRASTIK PULLS HIMSELF BACK UP! AND JONES SPINS AROUND… STIFF FOREARM FROM DRASTIK!
Fan: AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER! DRASTIK FIGHTING OFF JONES! BUT DRASTIK PULLS HIM IN…? WHAT?! NO… NO! NO DRASTIK! NO! OH… OH MY GOD!!! BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX ONTO THE ARENA FLOOR!!! HOLY SHIT!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! WHAT DID I JUST WITNESS?! BOTH MEN CRASH INTO THE ARENA FLOOR! DRASTIK SACRIFICING HIMSELF FOR THE GREATER GOOD, I SUPPOSE? BUT NEITHER MEN ARE MOVING AN INCH! JONES LITERALLY FOLDED IN HALF AGAINST THE BARRICADE! DRASTIK WINCING IN PAIN AS THAT FALL HAD TO SEVERELY INJURE HIS COLLARBONE OR SOMETHING! I can’t believe all the fight these men have in them! But it has to be pure endurance driving them to go this far! Their motivation to become King of Elite is aspiring! The referee and medical personnel are checking on both Drastik and Tiberius Jones ringside! Drastik is shoving the doctors and referee away from him! He grips on top of the barricade, pulling himself barely up with it!
Pierre: I literally cannot believe this man is even walking still! He took a whole lot out of him taking that huge fall from the apron! Something has to eventually give here! Drastik shoves a doctor checking on Jones away – CHAIR SHOT! DRASTIK TAKING THE FULL BRUNT OF A CHAIR SWING FROM O’HARA! AND O’HARA TURNS ON A DIME AND SLAMS THAT SAME CHAIR RIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF JONES! OVER! AND OVER! AND OVER! HE PREVENTED DRASTIK FROM INVOLVING HIMSELF! JUST SO HE COULD GET A TASTE OF VENGEANCE FOR HIMSELF! AND HE DRIVES THAT EDGE OF THE CHAIR RIGHT INTO JONES NECK! AND HE’S PRESSING HARD INTO THE NECK! HE’S CHOKING JONES OUT WITH THE STEEL CHAIR! HE’S REMORSELESS! AN EYE FOR AN EYE SOME WOULD CALL THIS! JONES IS GASPING, THROWING HIS ARMS UP! TRYING TO REMOVE THE CHAIR! HE’S GOING TO KILL THIS DEGENERATE! THE REFEREE PULLING O’HARA OFF OF JONES FOR JONES ON WELL BEING! O’HARA ONCE AGAIN SHOVES THE REFEREE OUT OF THE WAY! GOING RIGHT BACK TO JONES! SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK!!!! THE END OF DRASTIK’S BOOT SAYS HELLO TO O’HARA’S JAW! THE CHAIR GOING FLYING OUT OF HIS HANDS AS HE FALLS BACKWARDS INTO THE BARRICADE!
Stew: Oh no… Drastik’s eyes glaze over as he looks down to that same very chair! He leans down and lifts it with only malicious intent behind whatever he’s about to do! He takes one glance at the chair he’s holding, lifts his head up, then stares down O’Hara against the barricade! DRASTIK TAKES OFF IN A SPRINT WITH THE CHAIR! AND CLOCKS THAT CHAIR RIGHT OVER O’HARA’S SKULL!!! O’HARA COLLAPSES BACKWARDS AND RIGHT INTO THE CROWD! Drastik throws down the chair, looking to O’Hara who’s dazed on the ground! Several fans surrounding him as security is forced to make room around him! Drastik… is climbing on top of the barricade?! What’s Drastik thinking?! He’s seriously lost a few brain cells after that chair collided with his head! O’Hara using the security to lift himself back up, but he’s seriously dazed! I don’t think he knows where he is! AND DRASTIK STANDING TALL ON THE BARRICADE WITH HIS BACK TURNED ON O’HARA! THIS INSANE MAN TAKES ONE GOOD LOOK BACK… MOONSAULT RIGHT OFF THE BARRICADE ONTO O’HARA!!! TAKING SEVERAL SECURITY GUARDS DOWN WITH THEM! GOODNESS GRACIOUS! DRASTIK PULLING OUT THE MOST UNIQUE TECHNIQUES FROM HIS ARSENAL FOR THIS VERY IMPORTANT MATCH!
Fan: But we have to fully realize that this match is NOT going to end on the outside of the ring! They’re doing additional damage to one another by utilizing their surroundings, but it only matters if they can get back into that ring to finish it all! And I’ve noticed Drastik enjoys taking huge risks like this to manipulate a possible favorable outcome! But he’s doing as much damage to himself as he is to O’Hara or Jones! Drastik ascends back to a vertical posture, climbing over the barricade! O’Hara is left in the fans, security still tightly surrounding the area! Drastik sets his eyes dead ahead at Jones! Jones is back up on his feet! AND THE TWO HAVE SPOTTED ONE ANOTHER… THEY TAKE OFF IN A CHARGE AT EACH OTHER! RUNNING DOUBLE LARIATS TAKES THEM BOTH DOWN ONTO THE GROUND! THEY’RE BOTH LAID OUTSIDE THE RING! But they waste no time in getting up! They meet each other again! BUT DRASTIK LEAPS FOR THE ENZUIGIRI! JONES AVOIDS IT! DRASTIK BACK UP TO HIS FEET! AND JONES THIS TIME AROUND LEAPS FOR THE ENZUIGIRI! BUT DRASTIK NARROWLY AVOIDS THE BOOT! AND HE’S BACK TO HIS FEET! MY GOODNESS!
Pierre: AND JONES MEETS DRASTIK WITH A ROLLING ELBOW! ROLLING ELBOW SENDS DRASTIK BACKWARDS! JONES PURSUES HIM! BUT DRASTIK THROWS A WILD FOREARM! JONES DUCKS IT! AND SHOVES DRASTIK SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! OUCH! DRASTIK’S SHOULDER SOUNDS LIKE IT SHATTERS ACROSS THAT RING POST! AND JONES PROCEEDS TO SMASH DRASTIK’S HEAD INTO IT AS WELL! BEFORE TOSSING DRASTIK BACK UNDERNEATH THE ROPES! This match has finally found its way back inside the ring at last! But they’re leaving O’Hara on the outside! Jones follows Drastik, who’s crawling away from him! Jones pulls Drastik up by his tights! Drastik tries throwing an elbow back at him! But Jones avoids it! And Jones forces Drastik stomach first into the turnbuckle with a charge! Jones desperately trying to lift Drastik onto the top rope! Drastik struggles, but there’s not much he can do! He’s placed onto the top rope in a seated position, back facing Jones! Jones climbs up the ropes with him, BUT DRASTIK THIS TIME CONNECTING WITH SEVERAL ELBOWS ACROSS JONES’ EAR! RAPID ELBOWS FLYING BACK AND HITTING JONES IN THE HEAD! HE’S PUTTING HIS ABSOLUTE ALL INTO PREVENTING WHATEVER JONES HAS IN MIND!
Stew: Jones wavers backwards off the ropes, giving Drastik just enough time to spin around! AND DRASTIK FLIES OFF THE ROPES AT JONES WITHIN A BLINK OF AN EYE! HEAD SCISSORS – JONES CAUGHT HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS! AND JONES SPRINTS FORWARD! POWERBOMB RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!!! THE BUCKLE BOMB IS PERFECTLY EXECUTED! WHAT A GREAT COUNTER! JONES REACTING ON PURE INSTINCT AND IN-RING AWARENESS! He proceeds to once again lift Drastik back onto a seated position! He crawls up the ropes with him! He has a tight grip around his waist! Drastik is out of it! Jones has them both standing on the top rope now! DRASTIK THROWING HEADBUTTS! IF HE’S NOT CAREFUL THEY’RE BOTH GOING TO FALL!!!… OH MY GOD!!! SEISMIC TOSS! THE BACKFLIP BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX RIGHT OFF THE TOP ROPE!!!! AND JONES SENDS DRASTIK FLYING OVERHEAD ACROSS THE RING!!! DRASTIK LANDS WITH A LOUD THUD AND THERE’S NO TELLING THE AMOUNT OF PAIN BOTH MEN FELT OFF THAT! JONES MUSTERING UP JUST ENOUGH ENERGY FOR THAT… BUT NOW HE NEEDS TO GET TO THE COVER! JONES IS SLOWLY, BUT SURELY CRAWLING TOWARD DRASTIK! I THINK THIS COULD BE IT! HE’S ABOUT THERE! HE’S AN ARM’S LENGTH AWAY…
Fan: BUT LOOK!!! O’HARA PULLS DRASTIK RIGHT OUTSIDE THE RING BY HIS LEG!!! WHAT A SAVE! O’HARA ENSURING THAT TIBERIUS JONES IS UNABLE TO GET THE PIN! AND O’HARA ROLLS RIGHT INTO THE RING! JONES AT A KNEE! AND OH!!!… IN EXCELIS CONNECTS! THE BOMA YE! THE BOMA YE! O’HARA DRIVES THAT KNEE OF HIS INTO JONES’ SKULL WITH SUCH EMPHASIS BEHIND IT! AND HE COLLAPSES OVER JONES AND HOOKS THE LEG! THIS IS UNDOUBTEDLY IT!!!…
Referee: ONE!!!… TWO!!!!… THR—
Pierre: JONES GETS A SHOULDER UP! JONES GETS A SHOULDER UP! I HAVE NO IDEA HOW! BUT JONES LEAVES O’HARA IN A MOMENT OF SHOCK AND AWE! O’HARA BLANKLY STARING AT THE REFEREE SIGNALING FOR THE TWO COUNT! I THOUGHT HE HAD IT! I THOUGHT THAT WAS FOR SURE THE THREE COUNT WE NEEDED TO END THIS MATCH! O’HARA IS LEFT IN A STATE OF DISTRAUGHT! ARE YOU SERIOUS RIGHT NOW?!… O’Hara breathing heavily, looking down at Jones just in complete disbelief… O’Hara’s eyes widen and is that? That’s a rather sadistic looking smirk he has on his face… O’Hara backs into a corner, shaking his head, looking intensely down at Tiberius Jones! He’s lost his damn mind! This match is affecting him more than he thinks!
Stew: Obsession for a mere object does wonders, Pierre! And I think O’Hara is setting up yet another In Excelsis! Tiberius Jones is struggling just to get back up to his feet! He’s just as tired as the rest of them! And he’s just barely up, but falls to a knee! THAT DOESN’T STOP O’HARA!!!!… HE SOARS ACROSS THE RING LIKE A BIRD TAKING FLIGHT!!!! IN EXCELSIS!!!! BOMA YEE!!! A SECOND BOMA YE!!!!… CONNECTS?!?! OH MY GOODNESS! HE GOT HIM A SECOND TIME WITH THE RUNNING KNEE! AND ONCE AGAIN O’HARA COVERS! HOOKING BOTH LEGS!!! HE’S DONE IT! I’M CALLING IT! HE’S THE KING OF ELITE!!!
Referee: ONE!!!… TWO!!!!… THREE…
Fan: WHAT IN THE WORLD?!?! DRASTIK JUST PULLED THE REFEREE OUTSIDE THE RING AND THREW HIM SPINE FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! THAT REFEREE WAS JUST GOING TO COUNT FOR THE THREE! DRASTIK WITH A DEVILISH SMILE! HE JUST PULLED A RABBIT OUT OF HIS HAT! DOING ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING HE CAN TO SAVE THIS MATCH! O’Hara’s eyes become that of fire, you can see how cocky Drastik appears when smiling at O’Hara inside the ring! Drastik gestures for O’Hara to join him outside the ring! AND O’HARA IN A FLUSTER OF RAGE EXITS THE RING!
Pierre: AND DRASTIK HIGH TAILS IT OUT OF THERE! HE’S RUNNING AWAY FROM O’HARA! AROUND THE RING! DRASTIK SLIDES IN THE RING! O’HARA SLIDES IN THE RING! DRASTIK SLIDES OUT OF THE RING! BUT O’HARA FLIES OUT OF THE RING! TOPE SUICIDE DIVE!!!!!… DRASTIK SIDESTEPS IT AND SENDS O’HARA SHOULDER FIRST RIGHT INTO THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE!!! O’Hara winces in pain as Drastik barely escaping the rage behind that charging bull! He should consider himself nothing, BUT LUCKY! And what is Drastik doing now?! Drastik… is ripping off the padding from the Spanish announce table? He rips the monitors out as well! He’s setting up something vicious! Something cruel! I just don’t know how far these men will go! Drastik redirects his attention down at O’Hara, who’s still recovering from that nasty fall he just suffered! And Drastik lifts him up AND SLAMS HIM SPINE FIRST INTO THE EDGE OF THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! AGAIN! AND THEN BACKS AWAY… SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE TEMPLE! AND O’HARA COLLAPSES BACKWARDS ONTO THAT ANNOUNCE TABLE! HE’S SURELY KNOCKED OUT COLD! Drastik assists O’Hara up spine flat onto the announce table! Come on, just stop this madness!
Stew: Madness? This is the lengths they’ll go to WIN, Pierre! You surely must know this by now! Drastik then makes his way over to the apron, looking back repeatedly at O’Hara, while climbing up! He makes his way up the ropes now! High risks is what Drastik has been ALL ABOUT this entire match! And Drastik is perched, spine once again faced O’Hara! Drastik takes in a deep breath… AND FLIPS BACKWARDS!!!! STIGMATA!!!! THE STIGMATA!!!! THE CORKSCREW MOONSAULT SENDING BOTH MEN CRASHING THROUGH THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE! THAT ANNOUNCE TABLE SHATTERS AND BREAKS! AS WELL AS THEIR BODIES AS THEY GO THROUGH IT! THIS IS UNREAL! THE FANS ARE GOING INSANE FOR THIS CRAZY MATCH! Drastik rolling out of the rubble in order to regain his composure! He rolls onto the mat covering the arena floor, rushing to his feet at all costs! He’s struggling to stay afloat, but he breaks through the medical personnel checking on O’Hara’s condition! He picks him up like a rag doll, guiding him over to the ring, and slides him in! The referee now back in the ring! DRASTIK SLIDES IN AND CRAWLS INTO THE COVER! THIS IS IT! THIS HAS TO BE IT!!!…
Referee: ONE!!!… TWO!!!!… THREE!!!
Fan: TWO AND THREE QUARTERS MORE LIKE IT! JONES WAS RIGHT THERE TO BREAK THE PIN UP! HE THROWS HIMSELF INTO DRASTIK! THEY FORGOT ALL ABOUT JONES INSIDE THE RING! I ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT JONES! This match is far from over if Jones has anything to do with it! Drastik angrily rises back to his feet! Jones meets him with a swift kick to the right leg! The right leg that was trapped in a sequence of submissions earlier! Jones trying to reopen a wound, per say! He swings again another kick to the right leg! Drastik attempts striking back, but Jones avoids every strike! Jones throws an open palmed strike, BUT DRASTIK RAGS HIM IN AND WHIPS HIM – BUT MID-WAY JONES TRANSITIONS IT INTO HIS OWN WHIP! DRASTIK IS SENT SPRINTING INTO THE ROPES! And he rebounds back at the awaiting Jones! FLAPJACK! JONES LIFTS HIM BY THE LEG AND DROPS HIM ON HIS STOMACH FOR A FLAPJACK! Drastik is floored with every last attempt these men pull out to just further set up the inevitable end! Drastik crawls to the ropes, pulling himself up! AND JONES RIGHT BEHIND HIM!
Pierre: JONES LIFTS HIS HEAD BETWEEN DRASTIK’S LEGS AND HOISTS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS IN AN ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION!!!!… BUT DRASTIK IS BEATING HIS FISTS VIOLENTLY DOWN INTO JONES HEAD! BUT JONES!!!! JONES PULLS DRASTIK’S HEAD DOWN WITH BOTH HANDS!!!! ELECTRIC CHAIR DRIVER!!! JONES DROPS HIM FOR WHAT HE CALLS THE GAME CLINCHER!!!!!

THE STRIKE OF MIDNIGHT!!!!… THE FORWARD SOMERSAULT CUTTER COULDN’T HAVE CONNECTED AT A PERFECT TIME! JONES ROLLS DRASTIK OVER FOR THE PIN ONCE MORE!

Fan: O’HARA CRAWLS TO BREAK IT UP!!!… BUT!!!…
Pierre: BUT DRASTIK GETS THE SHOULDER UP! DRASTIK GETS THE SHOULDER UP! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! I SERIOUSLY CANNOT BELIEVE IT! THESE THREE HAVE HIT EACH OTHER WITH EVERY SINGLE THING THEY HAVE! THEY’VE TAKEN CHAIRS SHOTS, BEEN PUT THROUGH TABLES, AND HAVE TAKEN SOME HIGH RISKY MOVES IN THIS MATCH! BUT THERE NEVER SEEMS TO BE ENOUGH TO KEEP THEM DOWN!
Stew: Tiberius Jones slowly kneels before the referee, shouting at him in frustration as well! BUT HE FORGETS ABOUT O’HARA! O’HARA USING EVERY PRECIOUS MOMENT TO DO SOMETHING! HE PULLS TIBERIUS IN FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX!!! HE FOLDS TIBERIUS JONES IN HALF WITH A DEADLY GERMAN SUPLEX! AND HE ROLLS THROUGH! AND LIFTS JONES BACK UP! AND THIS TIME!! HE LIFTS HIM UP FOR THE TIGER SUPLEX!!!!… AND GETS HIM! TIGER SUPLEX CONNECTS, BUT ONCE AGAIN O’HARA ROLLS THROUGH AND MANEUVERS HIS WAY AROUND TO SET UP A DRAGON SUPLEX! BUT JONES! JONES IS FIGHTING THROUGH! JONES SLIPS THROUGH O’HARA GRIPS AND TURNS AROUND… SPINNING FOREARM SMASHES O’HARA RIGHT IN THE FACE! AND ANOTHER STIFF FOREARM SMASH RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF O’HARA! AND A THIRD! A FOURTH! A FIFTH! JONES CORNERS O’HARA AND RELENTLESSLY FIRES OFF WITH SO MANY STIFF FOREARMS! AND I THINK… YES! JONES HAS MANAGED TO BUST O’HARA OPEN WITH THOSE FOREARMS! HE’S JUST NOT STOPPING! UNTIL O’HARA PICKS HIS MOMENT RIGHT AND TOSSES JONES AWAY FROM HIM!!! BUT JONES DOESN’T STAY AWAY FOR LONG!
Fan: BUT JAMIE RUSHES FORWARD! CATCHES JONES! AND GOOD LORD! EXPLODER SUPLEX RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!!! O’HARA WITH THE EXPLODER SUPLEX SAVING HIM FROM WHATEVER JONES HAD LEFT FOR HIM! HE’S SPRAYED MIST INTO HIS EYES! HE’S BLOODIED HIM! O’Hara collapses to a knee, panting, heavily breathing, just now seeing Drastik on his feet! O’Hara pushes himself up!

AND THIS TIME O’HARA IS TRAPPED WITHIN DRASTIK’S SIGNATURE SUBMISSION! THERE’S NO SAVING O’HARA NOW! HE’S SCREAMING! SHOUTING AT THE REFEREE THAT HE DOESN’T SUBMIT! HE TRIES CRAWLING, BUT DRASTIK JUST PULLS BACK FURTHER! IF O’HARA CRAWLS TOO FAR, HE’S GOING TO BREAK HIS SPINE! HE’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO WRESTLE AGAIN! AND I PERSONALLY THINK DRASTIK HAS FOUND HIS WAY TO VICTORY!
Pierre: I’VE NEVER SEEN O’HARA STRUGGLE SO MUCH IN HIS CAREER! HE’S SERIOUSLY DOING ANYTHING HE CAN TO STAY ALIVE! BUT THIS SUBMISSION IS JUST TOO PAINFUL! I WOULDN’T BLAME O’HARA IF HE TAPPED RIGHT NOW! HE LOOKS VERY CLOSE TO! DRASTIK WRENCHES BACKWARDS EVEN FURTHER! AND THAT ROAR OF PAIN FROM O’HARA! I THINK HE’S… O’HARA… IS HE… SPRINGBOARD ELBOW DROP!!!! SPRINGBOARD ELBOW DROPS RIGHT ONTO THE STOMACH OF DRASTIK! TIBERIUS JONES INTERRUPTS THE SUBMISSION ABRUPTLY! I THINK HE JUST SAVED THE MATCH ALTOGETHER! O’Hara rolls to the apron, BUT JONES SPRINTS AND DROPKICKS O’HARA RIGHT OFF THE APRON TO THE OUTSIDE! HE’S CLEARING THE RING NOW! AND JONES RUSHES UP THE ROPES! JONES WITH A SUDDEN BURST OF ENERGY! DRASTIK SCRAMBLING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! JONES IS JUST THERE AS DRASTIK IS UP! AND JONES MEASURES DRASTIK UP SO NICELY… THE HEADHUNTER MISSILE DROPKICK!!!! HE.. GOT IT!!! THE THE FLAT BOTTOMS OF HIS WRESTLING BOOTS LAND NICELY ACROSS DRASTIK’S FACE!

AND JONES CRAWLS BACK INTO THE RING, BUT O’HARA GRABS HIM AGAIN! O’HARA FIGHTING THROUGH THE PAIN! JONES JUST WANTS TO COVER DRASTIK! AND NOW JONES IS REPEATEDLY STOMPING HIS FREE BOOT INTO O’HARA SKULL! HE MUST HAVE THE THICKEST SKULL YET! HE’S BARELY PHASED! I THINK HE’S ENTERED A STATE OF BERSERK! PAIN IS NULL TO HIM RIGHT NOW! JONES CAN’T BELIEVE IT! O’HARA PULLS HIM COMPLETELY OUT OF THE RING! BUT JONES SLAPS O’HARA OVER THE HEAD WITH HIS PALM! AGAIN AND AGAIN! AND O’HARA IS NOT PHASED! HE’S NOT MOVING AN INCH! HE JUST LOOKS UP LIKE A SAVAGE EAST AT JONES… AND TACKLES HIM RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! THE STEEL STEPS GO FLYING AS O’HARA LITERALLY SPEARS JONES RIGHT THROUGH THEM! BUT O’HARA IS NOT DONE! O’HARA BACK UP, DRAGS JONES BACK TO HIS FEET DESPITE EVERYTHING! AND O’HARA HOISTS HIM UP!!! FOR DEATH, DECAY, AND WINDY DAYS???… NO!!! JONES IS ABLE TO JUST SLIP OUT OF O’HARA’S CLUTCHES! JONES PERFECTLY BEHIND O’HARA! HE PULLS HIM IN FOR THE DRAGON SUPLEX!!!!…
Fan: But O’Hara isn’t having any of that! O’Hara with everything he has left, tosses elbows back at Jones! Jones refusing to lose his grip, but clearly has no choice! Jones instead smartly decides to slide into the ring to avoid any further wrath of O’Hara! O’Hara follows in pursuit after Jones, BUT JONES IS TRIPPED UP BY DRASTIK! Drastik using cheap tactics!

(“The Mission” by Puscifer ft. Milla Jovovich plays throughout the arena, as thousands of fans are booing loudly, Jones tiredly gets back to his feet in shock, as the referee raises his hand in victory)

Fan: Well, regardless you two – this match ended, and we have now crowned a new king to rule! This is a dawn of a new era, but I almost fear what kind of ruler this man is going to be…
(Tiberius Jones exits the ring, walking up the ramp with the assistance of the referee, he steps over to the throne smirking, he grabs the crown, and demand the referee to put it on his head, as the referee does…)
Pierre: THIS WAS GLORIOUS! TIBERIUS JONES DOES WHAT NO OTHER MEMBER OF THE J-DYNASTY HAS DONE BEFORE! HE’S BECOME KING OF EAW! LONG MAY HE REIGN!

(The camera fixates Tiberius Jones forcing the referee to robe him, as Jones takes a seat in his throne, he smiles and grabs the staff next to him, while looking up at Drastik and O’Hara recovering in the ring, the camera fades to black…)
