King Of Elite 8

 

 

 

(“Kings Never Die” by Eminem plays as the King Of Elite pre-show graphic shows up on the screen. It cuts to the arena, and the camera circles around the Allstate Arena, the place filling up at a fast rate as fans try to get in before the show. After the shot of the crowd, we turn it over to the Battleground/Pre-Show announce team: HYC and Rex Mcintyre.)

HYC: Hey yo! Hello EAW faithful, we are LIVE from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois and in just a little under an hour this place will hold what is already looking to be one of our biggest shows of the year: King of Elite!

Rex: Indeed, this is a card that has been stacked top to bottom, there are loads of great matches and if the matches themselves don’t already make it must see, keep in mind a king will be crowned tonight!

HYC: After a month of some of the toughest competition out there, The King of Elite tournament is finally coming to a close! But before we can hold the King of Elite finals though, we must find a new Voltage representative following Gabriel Eden’s suspension.

Rex: Unfortunately that is the case but when it comes to EAW, when one person falls off there will always be others waiting in the wings and tonight proves that! We have four hungry competitors ready for a second chance in a four way qualifier that decides the Voltage King of Elite spot and it is happening right now!

(We head over to ringside as the Ring Announcer has a mic in his hand, ready to call the upcoming match.)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is a FATAL FOUR WAY and it is scheduled for one fall! The winner of this match will move on as the Voltage representative in the EAW King of Elite Finals!

(“Fire It Up” by Thousand Foot Krutch plays as Nick Angel slowly makes his way down the ramp, focused on the ring and blocking out the chorus of boos he receives.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Dallas, Texas…….weighing in at 185 pounds…..he is “The Silent Assassin”…….NICK ANGEEEEELLLL!!!!!!

HYC: This is a guy right here who many have been sleeping on. For the past few weeks Nick has seemed to have gone under the radar, not many expect him to win but the thing about Nick is he tends to use people’s underestimation and turn it into an advantage. Last time he did that he got an Answers World Championship match, tonight it may get him the King of Elite crown if he plays his cards right!

(“The Man Who Sold the World” by Midge Ure plays as Liam Catterson comes bursting out of the entrance way. He enters the ring as Nick slides under the ropes and walks around ringside to avoid being around him for the time being.)

Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Shildon, United Kingdom…….weighing in at 225 pounds…………he is “The Oncoming Storm”……..LIAMMM CATTERSOOOONNNN!!!!!

Rex: Liam Catterson is someone I would watch out for, not only is he one of the best all around wrestlers on Voltage, he was a former King himself, having won the King of Extreme crown in 2013! That experience may come in handy, he’s done it before and he can very well do it again!

(The lights go dim and “Schism” by Tool starts to play to the entrance of Eclipse Diemos, who comes out alone this time around.)

Ring Announcer: And their opponent, from Prescott Hills Sanitarium, Arizona……weighing in at 286 pounds……he is “The Bleeding Smile”……ECLIPSE DIEMOOOOS!!!!!

HYC: Eclipse Diemos is showing up surprisingly without any backup, I guess he plans on doing it on his own tonight! Even on his own he has the potential to cause mayhem! The deranged mastermind knows how to manipulate situations in favor, he’s an incredible strategist and you know that coming into a match like this he has a game plan set!

(The lights turn from dim to pitch black as the music abruptly cuts. All that can be heard is the sounds of the audience, which become louder once the spotlight hits the stage and “Indestructible” by Disturbed plays. The announcer waits for Erebus but after a while opts, to carry on with the introduction.)

Ring Announcer: And lastly, from Parts Unknown……weighing in at 240 pounds…..he is “The Mercenary of Darkness”………EREBUSS JENNNNNNINGGGSSS —

Rex: WOAH! Erebus comes from the crowd and pushes past the ring announcer, looking to get his hands on Eclipse Diemos after everything he has put him through! The referee gets in between them before any contact can be made and forces Erebus into the corner opposite to defuse the situation until the match starts! With Erebus in the corner, he begins to calm down, the heat of the moment has passed as now everyone gets settled in the ring!

(DING! DING! DING!)

HYC: The bell rings and all four men are looking around amongst themselves. They’re waiting in their respective corners, watching for who will strike first. This qualifier has started off with a four way staredown and — OH! Nick Angel puts that idea to rest right away with a missile dropkick to Liam Catterson before he can even react, firing him right into the corner! Nick Angel gets up and admires his work, but Eclipse won’t let him celebrate thanks to a lariat that turns him inside out! Now that Eclipse has finally left his corner, Erebus goes in for the attack! He’s out for revenge ; Shot after shot being sent Diemos’ way!

Rex: Eclipse Diemos is being rocked backward, staggering into the ropes as Erebus grabs him by the hand and whips him across the ring! Back body drop on the big man! Erebus scrambles to his feet and heads to the turnbuckle, Erebus follows him and starts knocking the wind out of his opponent with shoulder thrusts! Eclipse is starting to sink down in the corner, becoming seated against the turnbuckles as Erebus Jennings attacks him with repeated stomps! Erebus continues his assault — until Liam Catterson pulls him away and throws him down onto the canvas! Erebus gets up and is met with a hard right to the face, and then a high knee!

HYC: Erebus gets up and is pulled in by Liam Catterson for a backbreaker! With Liam dropped to a knee, Nick finally re-enters the match and jumps at the opportunity! Shining wizard to the side of the head! Shoot kick to to Erebus as he tries to get back up! Eclipse Diemos is pulling himself up in the corner, recovering from what Erebus did to him but not for long! Running forearm shot to the face by Nick! He is then placed in a sidelock, being guided out of the corner….running bulldog with Nick catching Liam with a clothesline on the way down! Nick rolls Eclipse Diemos over onto his back and hooks the leg, the referee gets in position!

Referee: ONEEEEEE!!!!…..TWOOOOOOOO!!!!…..

Rex: Eclipse Diemos gets the shoulder up! Nick gets up and observes his surroundings, all three guys are down thanks to him picking his spots! Erebus Jennings is starting to stir so Nick Angel walks over toward him and picks him up by the hair! OH! Erebus with the jawbreaker! Nick is holding his jaw and turns away from, ending up in front of Liam who is getting back up to his feet! Liam pops up for a European uppercut, sending Nick back to Erebus who brings him in for an atomic drop! Liam has Nick now once again, looking to send him over the top rope, but Nick grabs ahold of the ropes so he can remain on the apron!

HYC: Nick smiles slyly as he looks to slingshot himself back into the ring! Eclipse Diemos though, he runs up to him and sends him flying off the apron and onto the floor! The three of them have ousted the vulture of their group and it has now been turned into a three way! Liam tries to attack Eclipse from behind but he turns around just in time to hit with a boot to the gut and then flip him over onto his shoulders! Powerslam! Erebus chimes in with a leg drop afterward! As he gets up Eclipse comes for him but Erebus sees it coming! Eclipse runs into him like a battering ram!

Rex: Eclipse holds his sternum as he returns to his feet and is left open to a back elbow right in the mouth! A snap suplex serves as a follow up and then Erebus flips over onto the body of Eclipse, grounding him in a Lou Thesz press! Mounted punches to the face! Eclipse starts to kick up his feet as Erebus, pushing him away for the time being while Liam crawls behind Erebus so he can take him off of his feet with a chop block! Liam pulls Erebus off of his knees and hooks back his arms — IS HE LOOKING TO GO FOR THE CATTERSON IMPACT!?

HYC: Indeed, he has him set up for it! But hang on, Erebus is fighting it! Erebus gets his hands out of that double underhook, grabs Liam’s legs and causes him to fall to the canvas! Erebus is now looking to go for a bridging pin!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEE!!!!……TWOOOOOOO!!!!!……THRRR —

Rex: Nick Angel intervenes as he slides back into the ring for a double foot stomp to the exposed abdomen of Erebus! Nick grabs a vulnerable Erebus by the singlet and sends him shoulder first right into the steel post! Nick Angel needs to watch out for what’s behind him though ; ROOM 13 BY ECLIPSE, CAUSING NICK TO ROLL OVER ONTO THE APRON AND THEN FALL TO THE MATS BELOW! Every time Nick gains momentum Eclipse has been there to cut him off! Eclipse Diemos turns around as now he and Liam Catterson are face to face, it has now become a one on one match for the moment!

HYC: Liam Catterson and Eclipse Diemos waste no time going at it, rights and lefts are being exchanged! Eclipse Diemos seems to be getting the better of Liam — oh, until Liam jams his thumb into the eye of Eclipse! Liam has Eclipse by the arm and is pulling as hard as he can, trying to move Eclipse but he won’t budge! Liam with a kick to the stomach which softens Eclipse up so he can pull him in! SPINEBUSTER! NO! Eclipse Diemos wraps his arm around the head of Liam and turned the situation in his favor via DDT!

Rex: Eclipse stands over the body of the downed Liam and comes raining down on him with elbow drops! He completes the sequence as he backs away and hits the ropes! Splash to Liam! Eclipse tries to force Liam’s shoulders down onto the mat but Liam shifts his body out of the pin attempt before the referee can even get down and begin to count it! Eclipse guides Liam up to his feet, but only so he can drag his face across the ring ropes, slowly and methodically tearing away at his flesh! Eclipse maintains his hold over Liam and delivers a Russian legsweep!

HYC: Liam escapes the move with elbows to the side of the head! He pushes Eclipse out of the way and then charges toward him but Eclipse side steps his attack! STO to Liam Catterson! Liam shoots out of the maneuver, sending Eclipse right into Erebus — who nails him with a hard right!! Erebus swinging for the fences as he hits Eclipse with another shot to the temple before pressing his hands against his throat to choke him! That tunnel vision may cost him though, Liam turns him around!

Rex: Chop to the chest of Liam! A chop to Eclipse as he stumbles toward him! Chop to Liam! Chop to Eclipse! Erebus switching back and forth between the two of them to keep them at bay! Liam breaks out of the pattern as he goes for a left but Erebus ducks under it and he hits Eclipse instead! He turns back to face Erebus! Flapjack! Eclipse runs at Erebus looking to catch him off guard but is hit with a scoop slam! Hard shots to Eclipse, again bringing their heated rivalry up to the surface! Eclipse tries to crawl away but Erebus grabs him by the legs!

HYC: Erebus is dragging Eclipse very close to that corner….Catapult, sending the big man into a collision with a resting Liam! Eclipse falls back directly into a Scorpion Death Drop! THE PITCH BLACK CONNECTS! Erebus drags him away once more and then turns him over ; INTO THE ABYSS! The submission is now applied as wait — hold on! That’s ONI on the stage! ONI is there and he has that cage with Nightmare inside of it! They stole Erebus’ crow, Nightmare from Erebus a few weeks ago and have not returned him since! ONI has a bat in his hand and taps the cage with it harder and harder, teasing Nightmare and angering Erebus! Erebus has had enough as he rolls out of the ring and runs down to ONI — but ONI steps out of the way and allows Maero to mow him down with a clothesline! They suckered him in!

Rex: Erebus’ head hit hard against the steel ramp as Liam Catterson is now stirring inside of the ring! He is the last man standing it seems as — NICK ANGEL! Nick Angel rolls in the ring behind Liam Catterson! He turns him around ; GROUND ZERO! JUMPING CUTTER CONNECTS ON LIAM CATTERSON! Nick Angel leans in to go for the cover, but wait a second! Eclipse grabs Nick by the tights and sends him SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! AND NOW ECLIPSE TOSSES HIM THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING, AS HE GOES OVER TO CATTERSON TO STEAL THE COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEE!!!!……TWOOOOOOOO!!!!…….THREEEEEEE!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Schism” by Tool plays once more as Eclipse Diemos rolls out of the ring and steps over the body of Erebus as he walks up the ramp.)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner and moving on to the King of Elite finals……ECLIPSE DIEMOOOOOSSSS!!!!!

HYC: Now I see why Eclipse came out alone tonight! Once again his master strategy gets him the win as he cheats Erebus out of a spot in the finals, using his fellow Sanatorium members!

Rex: Like it or not, this guy is now our Voltage representative for King of Elite! Can you imagine this guy winning the thing?

HYC: I sure can but he’ll have some stiff competition on the way to the throne. It’s official: Eclipse….Lucian…Aren, what a triple threat that will be! Thank you for tuning in to the King of Elite Pre-Show, we’ll see you for the event in a little over half an hour!

(Commercials and advertisements play for King Of Elite, hyping each match and storyline until the event begins.)

( EAW Intro plays )

“Here to stay… even when I’m gone.

When I close my eyes, through the passage of time…

Kings never –”

( The lyrics cut off and the instrumental to “Kings Never Die” by Eminem can be heard in the background from a distance… the camera begins at the summit of a mountain, the same summit where Zack Crash was seen in the RTR 9 video package. The camera slowly moves down the mountain, through the clouds, giving a bird’s eye view of the scene taking place below as following: )

( We enter a medieval city, where the masses are gathered on the streets on what is a dark and stormy day. The instrumental to “Kings Never Die” can no longer be heard. We get a closer shot of the town square, and the masses are gathered around by the thousands as large men wearing iron armour are clearing the way, and can be seen escorting a man bearing a crown on his head. )

( The man wearing the crown is brought to the gallows… he is presumed to be the king. However he is placed in the gallows, and a Chancellor wearing dark clothing stands before the soon-to-be-fallen King. )

Chancellor: What are your last words?

( The king laughs )

King: My demise will not end your burden. So long as there are riches in this land, chaos will always be a constant. And you know what they say about chaos… Chaos is not a pit–

Chancellor: That’s enough. Execute him.

( The Chancellor walks away, and the armed guards lift the heavy blade, place the Kings head in the gallows and subsequently drop the blade, executing the king. )

( As the Kings head rolls, the crown goes flying off his head and can be seen stained with the King’s blood. The people of the town, still in shock, are directed to leave and the busy town center empties out. The camera focuses back on the crown, and the words engraved on the side of the crown read “Heavy Is The Head; That Bears The Crown” )

( “Heavy Is The Head” by the Zac Brown Band begins to play as a hand can be seen picking up the crown… the person who picks it up is none other than HRDO, and he walks off into the distance until his figure can no longer be seen. A video package begins to play. )

Narrator: As the guard changes, one thing remains the same.

( Highlight shows King Lannister destroying Matt Miles at RTR 9, and also shows Jamie O’Hara celebrating with his EAW Championship after retaining. )

Narrator: Man’s lust for glory, and drive for power.

( Highlight shows King Lannister challenge Jamie O’Hara for the EAW Championship )

Narrator: Conflict ensues so long as there are riches in this world.

( Highlight shows Mr. DEDEDE and Ryan Savage brawling with each other )

Narrator: And evil does not leave all men’s heart.

( Highlight shows Dark Demon attacking Mexican Samurai’s father )

Narrator: So long as there is something to take from other men…

( Highlight shows Rhaegar in his conquest to become National Elite Champion )

Narrator: There will continue to be those who live, merely to take. )

( Highlight shows Ares Vendetta injuring Devan Dubian, and attacking Tyler Parker )

Narrator: So long as spite still exists as a concept.

( Highlight shows Madison Kaline and Tarah Nova brawling, as well as Tarah attacking Madison Kaline upon her return, as well as Madison’s blindside attack on Tarah. )

Narrator: We will forever be at war with ourselves… but deep inside every human being comes a desire to rule.

( Highlights show Lucian Black and Aren Mstislav cutting through the King Of Elite competition. )

Narrator: It is a desire that never subsides.

( Highlight shows Heart Break Boy challenging Brian Daniels for the World Heavyweight Championship. )

Narrator: But for those who wish to rule…

( Highlight shows Hexa-Gun staring down with HRDO )

Narrator: Comes a vital lesson to be learned.

( Screen quickly fades to black and the King Of Elite logo appears on the screen with a dark background, and the KOE logo is chopped in half by gallows. )

“Heavy is the head that wears the crown…”

( The song fades out. )

Narrator: AND NOW.. ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING PRESENTS, THE EIGHTH EVER…. KIIIIIINGGGGGG OOOOF EEEELIITEEEEEEEEE!!!

( Camera cuts out to the Allstate Arena where “Heavy Is The Head” is jamming over the loudspeakers. Pyro blasts from the stage and from the set, with a brilliant light display following the pyrotechnics. The camera pans through the entire audience as they are jumping, cheering and waving their signs. )

Stew: CHICAGO IS ON THEIR FEET! WE COME TO YOU LIVE FROM THE ALLSTATE ARENA WITH 18,251 FANS SELLING OUT THIS ARENA IN RECORD TIMING! THIS IS SHAPING UP TO BE ARGUABLY THE BIGGEST KING OF ELITE OF ALL TIME. ON THIS NIGHT, WE FIND MANY ANSWERS, THE MOST IMPORTANT BEING WHO MAKES THE ASCENSION!? WHO WILL FULFILL THEIR DESTINY AND BECOME THE KING OF ELITE?? I’m Stew-O, alongside Deadprez calling Dynasty’s end of the action! Showdown and Voltage representing as well!

( Cut to Showdown table )

Matt Ryder: WOO WOO WOO, YOU KNOW IT BROGOD! Matt Ryder along with my lovely sidekick Jake Mercer!

Mercer: Ryder’s idiocy aside, It’s shaping up to be a huge night for Showdown! So many important matches, but none perhaps more important than the EAW Championship match scheduled for tonight as THE KING faces THE CHAMP for all the marbles! King Lannister, the longest reigning King Of Elite of all time puts his crown on the line against the reigning and defending EAW Champion, Jamie O’Hara in what will be a Last Man Standing match for the ages!

( Cut to Voltage table )

Eddie Mack: And on our end just a PLETHORA of major matches coming your way from Voltage! This is going to be a night of surprises, a night to showcase the ability or Voltage talents have, and a night where one of our very own fight from the bottom and could very well become King Of Elite!

Kawajai: And Eddie, I can’t think of any better way to get King Of Elite started…. than THIS.

(Promo video plays capturing the story between Mr. DEDEDE and Ryan Savage. It starts documentary-style, showing DDD and Ryan speak on their alliance when the two of them first teamed up to form the Savage Ryans. It highlights the major matches that The Savage Ryans have competed in, the feats they have accomplished, bouncing back from failures together and eventually winning the EAW Tag Team Championships from RAGNAROK. Their reign is highlighted, with DDD and Ryan giving positive accounts on their time as tag team champion. However, the video package takes a dark turn after the Savage Ryans lose their tag team championships, and Mr. DEDEDE is seen losing several different matches, prompting Ryan to comment on “something missing” in Mr. DEDEDE. The several losses The Savage Ryans took against Hexa-Gun, The Mercenaries and etc are highlighted, with frustration growing in Ryan Savage captured on his face with each loss. Finally, the betrayal after the loss at House Of Glass is shown with Ryan Savage Package Piledriving Mr. DEDEDE and betraying him. The rivalry between DEDEDE and Savage is captured soon after, with various vicious, brutal attacks and statements made from both of them, including Ryan warning DEDEDE to pick wisely which hill to die on, and DEDEDE threatening Ryan Savage’s life. Statements made by Ryan’s new spokesman, Pegasus, also come with highlights of the sentiments he made on Voltage of Ryan wanting to snap Mr. DEDEDE’s neck and make him suffer. The video package of their feud comes to an end with Ryan managing to steal a win from Mr. DEDEDE, and DDD bouncing back from it the next week defeating Rokuro Masuda and staring down with Ryan Savage with the Answers World Championship in between then.)

( Return to ringside. Camera shows the ringside area and arena scattered with Tables, Ladders and Chairs. A plethora of tables, ladders and chairs are set up at the stage. Tables are set up lining down both sides of the ramp with chairs set up on them, and at ringside tables are both set up with chairs on them, as well as leaned on the barricade. Ladders are also set up at ringside, and two extremely long ladders are laying down against the ramp-sides. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Ring Announcer: The following match… is a TAAABBLEESSS LADDERS AND CHAIRS MATCH… AND IS FOR THE ANSWERRRS WOOOOOOOORLDDDDD CHAMPIOOOONSHIIIIPPPPPPPPPP!!!! The only way for this match to end is when one of the competitors climb the ladder and retrieve the Answers World Championship hanging 15 feet above the ring!

( “The Embrace” by AFI hits … Ryan’s manager, Pegasus walks out to the stage at first, but soon after Ryan Savage walks out from the back wearing his ring gear and warming up in place on the stage. After receiving instruction from Pegasus, Pegasus exits back through the curtain and Savage walks directly to the ring, loosening himself up and cracking his knuckles. )

RA: Introducing first… from Cleveland, Ohio… weighing 230 POOOOOOOOONNNNNDSSSSSSS…. “THE INFAMOUS” RRRRRYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNN SSSSSAVAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGEEEEEE!!!

Eddie Mack: The ruthless, merciless, sadistic, bloodthirsty, psychotic sociopath, better known as Ryan Savage. You look into the man’s eyes folks and there’s not an ounce of love or compassion for anybody, especially not his opponent tonight. Especially not his long time tag team partner of 18 months, Mr. DEDEDE. A man who noticed him when he was just a rookie a few months in, took him under his ring, but Ryan doesn’t care about any of that. He doesn’t care about what anyone has ever done for him. He only cares about what you can do for him right now, and if you are of no use for him he won’t hesitate to exterminate you.

Kawajai: I can’t say I’m the most innocent man, I can’t say I haven’t done things in the past that I regret. But you look at Ryan Savage and you see a man who regrets nothing. Absolutely nothing. You see him in this environment and he does not seem intimidated whatsoever, not one bit. He looks… dare I say, at home. Almost uncaring. Almost like he’s been here a million times. What in God’s name does he have running through his head…

( Ryan paces around the ring and “The Embrace” dies down … Ryan Savage is screaming at the stage, begging his opponent to hurry up, demanding DDD makes his arrival as soon as possible. )

( “Right For Me” by Eminem hits… smoke billows from the stage, and soon after that Mr. DEDEDE makes his entrance wearing a “Take Flight” shirt with the Answers World Championship around his waist. His eyes don’t leave Ryan’s eyes from the moment he steps through the curtain. )

RA: His opponent…. from Denver, Colorado, weighing in tonight at 230 POOOOOOOUNNNDSSSSS… HEEEEE IS THE ANSWERRRRRRRRRRRS WOOOOOOOORLD CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNN….. MMMMMMMMMMISSSSTEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRR DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

( DDD stops at the middle of the ramp and does his signature corna taunt as pyro shoots off from the sides and the top of the stage. DDD continues his way into the ring, and as soon as he slides in the ring Ryan Savage exits. )

Eddie Mack: You can just see the death glare from the Answers World Champion. When we see DDD like this, it’s resemblant of “The Monster”, the personality inside we know as “Methuselah”. You can see just how badly he wants revenge! He has been waiting for this for so long, and now is his chance to get out every ounce of hatred he has for his former partner and best friend!

( DDD hands the official his title and it is raised 15 feet above the ring. DDD’s music dies down after a while, and Ryan Savage slowly re enters the ring. Both men are separated by the referee, getting into each others faces… after a moment, the official calls for the bell. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Kawajai: MR. DEDEDE AND RYAN SAVAGE CHARGE AT EACH OTHER! AND WE GET A HOCKEY FIGHT TO START THE SHOW!!! AN OVERFLOW OF PENT UP RAGE AND AGGRESSION COMES POURING THROUGH THOSE PUNCHES! HATE AND RESENTMENT — THAT IS THE EMOTION IN THIS MATCH! THAT’S THE STORY GOING INTO THIS AT IT’S CORE! THEY ARE JUST LAYING INTO EACH OTHER WITH THESE PUNCHES, BUT DDD TURNS IT INTO A MORE COMPLEX FIST FIGHT AS HE GOES FOR BODY SHOTS! RYAN CAUGHT HIM WITH A BIG TIME RIGHT HAND!! DID YOU HEAR THAT? DDD is sent backing away and Ryan Savage DRIVES HIM into the corner and hits an onslaught of shoulders straight into the midsection!

Eddie Mack: DDD’s beating down his fists over the back of Ryan Savage trying to fight him off and fight his way out of the corner! Savage grabs DDD by the head to whip him into the ropes, DDD rebounds – OOHHHH!!! BRUUUUTAL RUNNING HEADBUTT CRASHING HIS SKULL STRAIGHT INTO HIS ONCOMING OPPONENT’S! DDD’S GROUNDED, AND RYAN HOVERS OVER HIM DELIVERING SHOTS TO THE HEAD! DDD’S JUST TRYING TO PROTECT HIMSELF FROM THOSE PUNCHES AFTER EATING THAT NASTY HEADBUTT! YOU CAN EVEN SEE A LITTLE BIT OF BLOOD TRICKLING DOWN THE SIDE OF DDD’S HEAD AFTER EATING THAT SHOT!

Kawajai: Ryan Savage rolls out of the ring now as you can see the gears turning in his head … and swipes off chairs from the nearest set up table as the chairs all clatter to the ground! Ryan moves the setup table right next to the ring apron while DDD’s quickly recovering… he runs the ropes and DDD HITS RUNNING BASEBALL SLIDE UNDER THE ROPE, THOSE LONG LEGS KNOCKING RYAN INTO THE BARRICADE! DDD after that kick has slid out of the ring, and is sitting on that table while Ryan is leaned on the barricade! DDD gets off the table, grabs his former best friend by the head and BASHES HIS FACE STRAIGHT INTO THE TABLE, AND HAS HIS HEAD BOUNCING OFF OF THE WOOD LIKE A BASKETBALL! NOW DDD GRABS RYAN BY THE NECK AND BACKS HIM INTO THE RINGPOST! HE IS STRANGLING HIS FORMER TAG TEAM PARTNER, AND CHEWING HIM OUT!

Mr. DEDEDE: (off-mic) I’LL MAKE YOU (CENSORED) RUE THE DAY YOU MET ME YOU SON OF BITCH!!

Eddie Mack: RYAN SAVAGE RESPONDS WITH SEVERAL BODY SHOTS!! DDD backs away, HEADBUTT BY RYAN! That sends DDD staggering back into a ladder leaned on the barricade and Ryan backs away before going for a JUMPING CLOTHESLINE ONTO THE LADDER!!! NOOO, DDD MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS RYANS BODY SMACKS AGAINST THE STEEL!!! Ryan’s leaned back on the ladder in a lot of pain while the fans in the front row react in shock to that impact! DDD’s grabbed another ladder laying down on the floor and HOISTS OVER HIS HEAD…. AND CHUCKS IT RIGHT AT SAVAGE!!! THE LADDER SMACKS INTO RYAN SAVAGE’S BODY!! RYAN IS MOMENTARILY PANCAKED BY LADDERS, BUT NOW HE COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND OVER THE LADDER THAT JUST HIT HIM! I THINK THAT MIGHT HAVE GOT HIM IN THE FACE! Ryan’s on one knee, grimacing in pain and DDD grabs Ryan by the roots of his hair with a mad look on his face… AND DDD DRAGS RYAN UP, TAKES HIM ACROSS RINGSIDE AND SENDS RYAN CRASHING THROUGH A TABLE LEANED ON THE BARRICADE!!!! RYAN SAVAGE ROLLS AROUND CURSING IN PAIN AFTER THAT TABLE CRASH, AND THE BACK OF HIS LEFT ARM AS YOU CAN SEE HAS BEEN SEVERELY CUT OPEN!

Kawajai: You’re right, Mack! That arm is leaking badly! Ryan’s trying to get up but is holding that left arm in a lot of pain, and Mr. DEDEDE isn’t even stopping for a second! He’s going at another table that’s got four or five chairs stacked onto it… and he’s grabbing the chairs and chucking them into the ring! DDD grabs another chair leaned on the barricade… and THROWS IT AT THE BACK OF RYAN SAVAGE’S HEAD TAKING HIM DOWN AGAIN!

DDD: (off-mic) FUCK YOU.

Kawajai: Our censors not able to catch that. The emotions are at an all time high, folks. This is a very real situation we have in front of you. This is aggression pent up for months and months and all of it is being released through this match! DDD’s dug under the ring and has tossed even more steel chairs in the ring, creating a pile of about seven chairs or so in the ring! DDD goes back over to Ryan Savage, rolls him in and takes that chair back in the ring with him… as soon as Ryan Savage gets to his feet, DDD WHACKS THAT STEEL CHAIR OVER THE SPINE OF SAVAGE!!! SAVAGE COLLAPSES OVER THE PILE OF CHAIRS, AND DDD BRINGS THE HAMMER DOWN AGAIN SMACKING THAT CHAIR FEROCIOUSLY OVER RYAN SAVAGE’S SPINE!!! Now DDD goes over to one of the turnbuckles with the chair in his hand… and it looks like DDD’s climbing up that turnbuckle! Look at that berzerk look on his face! I think I know damn well what he’s going for!!! Ryan Savage lays on that pile of chairs unsuspecting, but DDD IS PERCHED AT THE TOP ROPE!!! DDD’S GOT THE CHAIR TUCKED UNDER HIS ARM, AND IS GOING FOR THE WINGS OF HELL!!!! ….. HE LEAPS OFF!!!! NOOOOO, RYAN LIFTS BOTH BOOTS RIGHT INTO THE CHAIR, KNOCKING DDD COMPLETELY OUT OF LOOP! And Ryan drags DDD up, whips him to the nearest ropes and RYAN CATCHES DDD WITH A FLAPJACK SENDING DDD’S BODY SMACKING INTO THAT PILE OF STEEL CHAIRS!!! DDD rolls around bracing his left pec, and Ryan Savage grabs one of the steel chairs to use for his own leverage…. he sets the chair up right in front of Mr. DEDEDE, grabs another chair from the pile…. RYAN RUNS THE ROPES BEHIND HIM, RICOCHETS OFF THEM AND BOUNCES OFF THE SET UP STEEL CHAIR TO HIT A SPRING-OFF CHAIR-AIDED JUMPING CLOTHESLINE, KNOCKING HIMSELF AND MR. DEDEDE OUT OF THE RING!!!

Eddie Mack: MAAAAN THAT CHAIR JUST KNOCKED DDD RIGHT OVER HIS HEAD! ONE HELL of an innovative attack by Savage! DDD’s definitely been taken out of the driver’s seat, but I don’t know if Ryan Savage is necessarily in it yet. There is just so much energy behind this match, you can tell this match has started with the foot on the gas and neither of these two are going to stop until someone hits a wall! We haven’t reached that point yet! DDD and Ryan are taking about the same time to recover… just so much emotion has been vested into this rivalry already… and DDD, on spaghetti legs, manages to hit a LOUD PUNCH TO THE HEART!! CRIPPLING BODY SHOT, BUT SAVAGE RESPONDS WITH A KICK TO THE FACE! NOW SAVAGE GRABS DDD BY THE HEAD AND FLINGS HIM OVER THE BARRICADE, SENDING DDD CRASHING INTO FANS IN THE FRONT ROW! THE MAN DOESN’T CARE, HE DOESN’T CARE AT ALL ABOUT ANYONE’S HEALTH, NOT EVEN THE FANS! DDD falls right into the lap of the fans and security instructs people to clear the scene, leaving behind empty chairs as they watch from a semi-distant huddle… and SAVAGE HITS A CHAIR AIDED DROPKICK JUST AS DDD PULLS HIMSELF BACK UP WITH THE BARRICADE! Now Ryan Savage grabs one of the ladders set up at ringside and closes it up, tucks it under his arm and climbs up to the apron via steel steps… and now Ryan… oh my gosh… HE HAS THE LADDER HOISTED OVER HIS HEAD……… DDD’S PULLING HIMSELF BACK UP WITH THE EMPTY STEEL CHAIRS BEHIND HIM, AND TURNS AROUND!!! LOOK OUT!!!! RYAN SAVAGE CHUCKS THE LADDER AT MR. DEDEDE! BUT WOW! DDD CATCHES IT!!! DDD CATCHES THE LADDER — RYAN SPRINGS FROM THE APRON AND OVER THE BARRICADE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!!!! RYAN FLIES OVER THE BARRICADE CRASHES INTO THE LADDER, WHICH CRASHES INTO DEDEDE’S UPPER TORSO AND DEDEDE GOES CRASHING INTO A SEA OF EMPTY CHAIRS AS THE LADDER!!! THESE FANS AT RINGSIDE ARE STUNNED, AND RYAN ISN’T EVEN FINISHED, RYAN SPRINGS BACK UP AND HOPS ON TOP OF THE BARRICADE… DOUBLE FOOT STOMP OFF THE BARRICADE INTO THE LADDER-COVERED MR. DEDEDE!!! THAT FOOT STOMP PANCAKES DDD BETWEEN THE LADDER AND THOSE CHAIRS!!!!!!

Kawajai: Goodness gracious! DDD’s just buried by those chairs and that ladder! Ryan Savage sits there panting with a mean, dog-like mug on his face! It’s almost like a form of gratification to see his former mentor, former partner and ally suffer! There are evil people in this world folks, and make no mistake about it, Ryan Savage is an evil man! Savage gets up, climbs over the barricade… you notice how neither of these men have even gone for the victory despite the numerous opportunities they had. That’s because they’re not here for the title match! In the words of Ryan’s manager Pegasus from last week on Voltage, “this is not a title match, this is a DEATH MATCH”. They’re here to main first and attain glory later! Savage after a moment of scouring has another ladder in his hands and is… is BRIDGING the ladder from our announce desk to the ring apron! There’s just a plethora of atrocities that can be committed with the ladder in this position! But Ryan’s not done yet, Ryan digs underneath the ring to pull out another ladder, and he bridges that ladder right next to the other! Now Ryan goes over to our right-hand side and is looking for another weapon… meanwhile Mr. DEDEDE is back up on his feet, and I give him all the credit in the world for that. I don’t think Ryan’s aware of DEDEDE’s recovery time, but that’s arguably the most durable man in the history of this business and RYAN’S APPARENTLY GOT NO CLUE… RYAN’S COMING BACK OUR WAY WITH A TABLE IN HAND, AND DEDEDE JOGS OVER, LEAPS ON TO THOSE BRIDGE LADDERS AND GOES FOR THE “VINTAGE DEDEDE” HILO OFF THOSE LADDERS!!! NO, RYAN DROPS THE TABLE, DUCKS DOWN AND RUNS UNDERNEATH THE BRIDGED LADDERS! DDD STICKS THE LANDING, STUMBLES FORWARD… AND SAVAGE SPRINGS OFF THOSE BRIDGE LADDERS AND HITS A BRILLIANT MISSILE DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD, SENDING DDD CRASHING INTO A STOOD-UP LADDER IN FRONT OF HIM! Now that stood-up ladder falls and leans over the barricade, and Ryan Savage goes after his partner who’s on one knee, dazed and confused…. and RYAN SAVAGE HITS A RELEASE TIGER SUPLEX!!!!!!! SENDING DDD SNAPPING THROUGH THE METAL HINGES OF THE LADDER!!! OH MY GOD THOSE SHARP HINGES THAT KEEP THE LADDER TOGETHER HAVE SNAPPED, AND HAVE PIERCED THE BACK AND THE SIDES OF DDD’S BODY, HE’S BLEEDING FROM HIS THE SIDE OF HIS BODY!!! THAT WAS ABOUT THE WORST LANDING I COULD IMAGINE!!!

Eddie Mack: That was NASTY, Kawa! And honestly, I think now it’s safe to say Ryan Savage is in the drivers seat! DDD’s just sitting on the floor, having to deal with the anguish he’s being put through as replays of that tiger suplex go up on the left hand corner of the screen. Now Savage drags DDD up from the ground and Savage smiles in DDD’s face… DEDEDE GIVES A NASTY SLAP TO THE FACE!!! AND SAVAGE GRABS HIM BY THE HAIR AND BEATS HIM IN THE FACE WITH PUNCHES REPEATEDLY! SAVAGE TAKES DDD OVER TO THE LADDERS, AND BASHES HIS FACE INTO IT! DDD’s laid out on the bridged ladders right in front of us and Ryan Savage climbs onto it… and RYAN GOES FOR THE PUMPHANDLE DRIVER!!!!! OH MY GOSH!!!!! PUMPHANDLE DRIVER TRYING TO SEND DDD HEADFIRST THROUGH THESE LADDERS!!!! OH MY GOD!!!! …….. NO!!!! DDD LANDS BEHIND SAVAGE, AND COUNTERS WITH THE TRIPLE D DRIVER!! DDD-O-MATIC SENDS THE BACK OF SAVAGE’S HEAD INTO THE LADDER! MAAAAAN THE BACK OF HIS SKULL JUST SMACKED RIGHT ONTO THE STEEL!

Kawajai: This was a crucial counter honestly, because had Savage hit that this match damn sure would have been over! Now DEDEDE rolls off of the bridged ladder and onto the apron, while Savage plops down to the ringside floor rolling off of the ladders… Ryan’s dazed, and is trying to grab a hold of that wooden table on the ground to use it as some sort of way to build leverage. After a moment DDD’s in the ring and DDD musters up the strength to get back to his feet despite all he’s been put through…. and DDD PICKS HIS SPOT, RUNS THE ROPES AND SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING….. HE LEAPS OVER!!!! “VINTAGE” DEDEDE!!!!!!!!!!! RYAN SAVAGE HOISTS THE TABLE OVER HIS HEAD!!!!! AND DEDEDE COMES CRASHING THROUGH IT, AND CRASHING THROUGH SAVAGE WITH THE SOMERSAULT SENTON TO THE OUTSIDE!!! AND DDD’S LEG SEEMS TO BE BANGED UP, HE’S CLUTCHING AT HIS LEG, BUT RYAN SAVAGE JUST HAD AN ENTIRE HUMAN BEING SMASH A TABLE THROUGH HIS HEAD, AND SUBSEQUENTLY HE IS LAID OUT AT RINGSIDE, BUSTED OPEN!!!

Eddie Mack: A taxing move by the Answers World Champion, but it was the necessary risk he had to take! In a match like this, high impact must be fought with high impact! DDD’s up, barely, trying to shake some of the pain off of his leg that was no doubt sliced open by that wooden table… now DDD drags Ryan Savage up from the floor.. look at this, while DDD’s picking his opponent up, Ryan is just reaching for his neck! Just lunging for it, trying to strangle him! THAT’S how much they hate each other! Enough to strangle each other at any point possible, but DDD hits a big time uppercut! Now DDD sends Savage into the ring, but as DDD follows him in, a weary and perhaps gassed out Ryan Savage rolls out from the other side and is retreating on the ramp it seems…. DDD rolls out with him, and Savage is limping up the ramp and DDD’s coming after him, and SAVAGE GRABS A CHAIR AND FLINGS IT AT DDD, BUT DDD KNOCKS IT AWAY WITH HIS ARM! Savage is going up the stage where you can see two extremely tall ladders, surrounded by pyramids of tables stacked on top of set up chairs that are stacked on top of pyramids… now DDD RUNS AFTER SAVAGE, AND GETS HIM WITH A RIGHT HAND! SAVAGE STRIKES BACK! These two are on the stage now, going back and forth in an all out fist fight! It seems like Savage was just trying to buy some time and create enough space to even function, but DDD’S COMING AT HIS OPPONENT WITH A HELLACIOUS ARRAY OF STRIKES, KIDNEY SHOTS, RIB SHOTS, PUNCHES TO THE JAW! SAVAGE REPLIES WITH A CLOTHESLINE, DDD DUCKS, SPINNING BACKFIST!! SAVAGE GOES STUMBLING BACK INTO THE MINITRON…. DEDEDE COMES BACK AT HIM WITH THE BIG BOOT!!! SAVAGE BACKPEDALS INTO THE ELECTRONIC MINITRON, AND DEDEDE TAKES OFF!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!!! DEDEDE WITH THE SPEEARRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEER!!!! SPEEEEEEEEEEEEARRRR!!!!! THROUGH THE MINITRON!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!! SPEAR INTO THE MINITRON!!!! HOOOLY SMOKES!!! RYAN SAVAGE HAS BEEN SENT THROUGH THE FREAKING ELECTRONIC DISPLAY OF THE MINITRON!!!!!

Kawajai: CHRIST ALMIGHTY!!! THAT COULD HAVE FREAKING ELECTROCUTED BOTH OF THESE MEN!!!

( DEDEDE and Savage are both on the ground, covered in glass, sweat and blood. DDD is on his knees, panting and scowling while Savage is writhing in pain. Replay airs of DEDEDE spearing Savage into the electronic minitron, damaging it in the process. Cut back to the live feed. )

Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE’s back up to his feet!… Ryan Savage is on his knees, looking completely out of it, and DDD doesn’t even look finished yet! DDD drags Savage up to his feet, RUNS ACROSS THE STAGE…. NO WAY! NO WAY! DDD FLINGS RYAN INTO THE PYRAMID OF TABLES STACKED ON CHAIRS STACKED ON TABLES!!! RYAN SAVAGE’S BODY CRASHES INTO THOSE CHAIRS, AND THROUGH THOSE TABLES!!! MY GOODNESS WHAT A MESS THAT’S MADE! Ryan Savage rolls around in just complete agony and DEDEDE doesn’t give him an inch! Not even an inch! DDD drags Savage up and takes him over to the ramp… and DDD goes halfway down the ramp before BASHING RYANS FACE INTO ONE OF THE SET UP TABLES ON THE RAMP, SNATCHING ONE OF THE STEEL CHAIRS LEANING ON THE RAMP, AND HITS A CONCHAIRTO!!!! THE CHAIR GOES BOUNCING OFF THE BACK OF RYAN SAVAGE’S SKULL!!! DEDEDE GOES FOR ANOTHER CONCHAIRTO, BUT HE MISSES! ONLY BECAUSE SAVAGE COLLAPSES AND ROLLS ALL THE WAY DOWN THE RAMP! SAVAGE IS DOWN AT RINGSIDE HOLDING HIS HEAD AND TOSSING AND TURNING, HOPING FOR THE PAIN TO GO AWAY, BUT IT WON’T! DEDEDE FOLLOWS HIM WITH THE CHAIR AND BRINGS THE CHAIR DOWN OVER THE BACK AGAIN!!! AND BRINGS IT DOWN AGAIN!!!!! AND A THIRD CHAIRSHOT!!!! FOURTH CHAIRSHOT INTO THE ARMS!!! FIFTH CHAIRSHOT INTO THE CHEST!!!! AS RYAN SQUIRMS, DEDEDE BRINGS IT DOWN ON ANY OPEN SPACE HE SEES FIT!!! SIXTH CHAIRSHOT!!!! SEVENTH!!!! AND DEDEDE TOSSES THE CHAIR AWAY IN EXCITED RAGE!

Eddie Mack: DEDEDE goes to the side of the ramp and grabs one of the ladders off the floor leaning on the ramp-side barricade… and look at that — that SADISTIC look in the eyes! DDD’s got a sadistic, almost sarcastic “gasp” look about him while Ryan Savage is pulling himself up with the apron… SAVAGE TURNS AROUND, AND DEDEDE RUNS FULL-SPEED!!!!! OH!!!!!!!! OH!!!!!!!!! DEDEDE DRIVES THE LADDER STRAIGHT INTO THE GROIN OF RYAN SAVAGE!!!!!! UGHHHHHHHH, THE HEAD OF THAT LADDER BATTERING-RAMMED STRAIGHT INTO RYAN’S YAM BAG! AND DEDEDE MOCKS A SURPRISED LOOK ON HIS FACE AS THE WHOLE CROWD RESPONDS TO THAT FREAKING DISGUSTING SHOT! DEDEDE SLIDES THE LADDER INTO THE RING, AND GETS DOWN TO RYAN SAVAGE’S LEVEL! WHAT A MESSED UP MOVE, MAN! OUCH!

Kawajai: Ryan Savage is on his knees holding his groin! And DDD is just in his face trash talking, and slapping his face! And Ryan Savage STICKS A MIDDLE FINGER INTO DEDEDE’S FACE!!! DEDEDE STICKS A MIDDLE FINGER BACK INTO RYAN’S FACE!!! DEDEDE SNATCHES RYAN’S MIDDLE FINGER AND BENDS IT ALL THE WAY BACK!!!! DID YOU HEAR THAT CRACK?!?! HOLY SHIT, DID YOU HEAR THAT CRACK?!!? DEDEDE’S SNAPPED RYAN’S MIDDLE FINGER, AND HE SADISTICALLY STOMPS ON THAT HAND!!! HE STOMPS ON THAT HAND LIKE A MADMAN OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!! SCREAMING EXPLETIVES WITH EACH STOMP, AS RYAN ROLLS AROUND GRABBING THAT HAND OF HIS! AND MR. DEDEDE SCRAPES RYAN UP FROM THE GROUND AND ROLLS HIM INTO THE RING!

Eddie Mack: Ryan Savage is in unimaginable pain right now! And DEDEDE appears to have caught a second wind, in a sense, as he gets back in the ring and crouches to the corner……. Ryan Savage is just in a world of hurt, there’s no way he could even prepare for what’s about to come…….. Savage is somehow just trying to muster up enough to get back up, but that groin is just killing him! He can barely even move without holding his groin after that violent freaking ladder shot to the groin, but somehow Savage is up to his feet! Doubled over, yes! Drained, yes! But he’s up! He turns around! DEDEDE TAKES OFF!!!!!!!!! ANOTHER SPEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO!!!! SAVAGE SNATCHES A CHAIR FROM THE PILE IN THE RING, AND WITH ONE HAND HITS A MAJOR LEAGUE PITCH FLINGING THE CHAIR INTO DEDEDE’S FACE!!! THE CHAIR HITS DEDEDE’S HEAD SO HARD, HIS HEAD IS CAUGHT IN THE FLAPS!!! SAVAGE DROPS TO HIS KNEES, AND DEDEDE IS STILL ON HIS FEET, BUT UTTERLY DAZED…… WHAT THE HELL????? DEDEDE PULLS OFF THE CHAIR FROM HIS HEAD WITH BLOOD TRICKLING DOWN HIS FOREHEAD……… AND HAS AN EVEN MORE PSYCHOTIC LOOK ON HIS FACE! IT’S LIKE IT STUNNED HIM FOR A MINUTE, BUT BARELY EVEN FAZED HIM!

Kawajai: Rage can make you do incredible things, Eddie! The adrenaline level is off the charts, you can feel it! DDD’s unfolds the chair, and sits on the chair casually with blood trickling down his head while he watches his former partner struggle to get up per use of the ring ropes. DEDEDE’s just seeping it now, he’s seeping in the pain his former partner is in and utterly basking in it as if it were glory…. and DEDEDE GETS UP, GRABS THE CHAIR AND WHAAAAAAAM!!! HEADSHOT!!!! UNPROTECTED HEADSHOT!!! THE STEEL CHAIR SMACKS RIGHT OVER THE HEAD AND RYAN SAVAGE IS SENT THROUGH THE ROPES, COLLAPSING RIGHT IN FRONT OF US! LOOK AT THAT CHAIR FOR GOD’S SAKES, IT’S FREAKING DENTED! THERE IS A MASSIVE DENT IN THE FORM OF RYAN SAVAGE’S SKULL PRACTICALLY PROTRUDING THROUGH THE SEAT OF THE CHAIR! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, THIS CAN’T GO MUCH LONGER!

Eddie Mack: …… AND I DON’T THINK IT WILL! DEDEDE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING PERPENDICULAR SIDES TO SAVAGE, AND GRABS ANOTHER LADDER! DEDEDE’S LOOKING DOWN AT THIS LADDER WITH EVIL INTENTIONS, AND LOOKS BACK AT HIS OPPONENT FROM AFAR…. AND DEDEDE COMES AROUND THE CORNER WITH A WICKED GRIN, LIMPING WHILE HOLDING THAT LADDER, DRAGGING HIMSELF CLOSER BEING MOVED ONLY BY HIS HATRED! SAVAGE IS USING THE LADDERS BRIDGED BETWEEN OUR TABLE AND THE RING APRON AS A MEANS TO GET TO HIS FEET WHILE BLOOD JUST COMES POURING OUT OF HIS HEAD… HE TURNS AROUND…. AGAIN!?!?!? SON OF A BITCH!!!!!! DEDEDE DRIVES THE LADDER INTO RYAN SAVAGE’S GROIN AGAIN!!!!! MOTHER OF…. UGHHH, JEEZ MAN!!! WHAT THE HELL KIND OF TWISTED SON OF A BITCH ARE WE SEEING!?!? WAIT, HE’S NOT FINISHED! DDD HOISTS THE LADDER OVER HIS HEAD…… OHHHH!!! HE BRINGS IT DOWN!!! CON-LADDER-TO OVER THE BACK OF RYAN SAVAGE’S HEAD!!!! HOW THE HELL IS SAVAGE EVEN GOING TO COME BACK FROM THIS!? THIS IS BRUTAL, THIS IS… THIS IS UNFAIR!!

Kawajai: THIS IS EVERYTHING RYAN SAVAGE WOULD HAVE DONE HAD THE TABLES BEEN TURNED, MACK! FAIRNESS HAS BEEN THROWN OUT THE WINDOW! EVIL REIGNS HERE!

( DEDEDE drags Ryan Savage up and rolls him onto the two stacked ladders bridged between the announce table and ring apron, and DDD sets up the 15 foot ladder he previously wielded nearby. )

Kawajai: OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD… DEDEDE MAKES THE CLIMB, BUT NOT ANYWHERE NEAR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, THAT HAS BECOME AN AFTERTHOUGHT. NO FOLKS, DEDEDE’S CLIMBING UP THE LADDER ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP OF IT HERE AT RINGSIDE… HIS EYES BULGING OUT OF HIS SOCKET, BITING HIS LIP, DOING HIS BEST TO GET TO THE TOP AS FAST AS HE CAN!!! HE COULD HAVE ENDED IT LONG AGO, BUT INSTEAD HE STANDS AT THE TOP OF THE LADDER LOOKING DOWN AT THE FALLEN RYAN SAVAGE!!!!!

Eddie Mack: NO!!!!!!!! NO!!!!!! DON’T DO THIS!!!

Kawajai: CORKSCREW NORTH STAR!!!!!!!!!! MY GOD!!!!!!!! MY GOD!!!!!!!!! CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM THE LADDER!!!! CORKSCREW NORTH STAR FROM 15 FEET, SENDING RYAN SAVAGE THROUGH THE LADDERS!!!!!!!!!!!! THOSE LADDERS ARE SNAPPED IN HALF!!!!! AND GOD AS MY WITNESS, RYAN SAVAGE IS DEAD!!!! HE HAS BEEN BROKEN IN HALF!!!!!!!

( Various replays show the Corkscrew North Star, amounting up to 30 seconds worth of replays )

Eddie Mack: THE DEMONIC POSSESSED MR. DEDEDE HAS JUST OBLITERATED HIS OPPONENT!!! AND NOW HE MAKES THE TREK BACK INTO THE RING, DRAGGING HIMSELF IN! THE WIND HAS BEEN KNOCKED FROM HIM, YOU CAN SEE IT! HE’S COMPLETELY GASSED, CLUTCHING THOSE RIBS, BLEEDING FROM VARIOUS PARTS OF HIS BODY, BUSTED UP LEG, BUT HE’S FINISHED THE DAMNED JOB! NOW DEDEDE SETS UP A LADDER IN THE RING AND SLOWLY CLIMBS! THE FIRST ATTEMPT AT GRABBING THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP ALL MATCH, BUT AFTER THAT ALL-OUT WAR, I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT WILL BE THE LAST! DDD SLOWLY CLIMBS THE LADDER, COMPLETELY WINDED, UTTERLY SPENT, DAMAGED, BRUISED, BANGED UP…. AND HE’S AT THE TOP. DEDEDE REACHES UP FOR HIS PRIZED POSSESSION, AND UNHOOKS THE BELT! THIS MATCH IS OVER!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “Right For Me” by Eminem hits as DEDEDE rests on the top of the ladder, hugging the Answers World Championship )

RA: Here is your winner AND STILL THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIOOOOOOOONNNNNNN… MMMMMISTTEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRR DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Kawajai: WOW.

Eddie Mack: -shudders- I FEEL LIKE I GOT OFF OF A DAMNED ROLLERCOASTER.

( The cameras capture the wreckage at ringside, in the crowd, on the ramp and on the stage of broken tables, disfigured chairs, damaged ladders, trails of blood, pools of sweat. Ryan Savage is seen unconscious, lying in a wreckage of two snapped ladders, and Mr. DEDEDE is on top of the ladder lifting up a corna with one hand. )

( Replays from the various moments, brutal crashes and high risk spots in the match are shown. )

Kawajai: And thus ends the story of Mr. DEDEDE and Ryan Savage. It all started from when Ryan Savage was nothing more than an upstart, still a mainstay on EAW’s developmental territory NEO. DEDEDE took Ryan in with outstretched arms, treated him as a brother, the two of them were considered as brothers. Flash forward, and after enduring failure, dealing with pain, heartache, deceit, betrayal and hatred, it all finally comes to an end.

( Cut back to the live feed, and DEDEDE’s off the ladder, rolls out of the ring and slowly drags himself up the ramp. )

Eddie Mack: This match may very well have cut Ryan Savage’s career in half. I couldn’t imagine coming back from all of that… lord have mercy on this man’s soul, because Mr. DEDEDE sure won’t.

( Ryan Savage is dragged out of the wreckage of ladders with blood dripping like a faucet out of his back, and DEDEDE drags himself up the ramp, dragging the AWC behind with him, not turning back until the camera transitions elsewhere. )

( Reasonable Doubt 2016: The Monster That You Made Ad plays. Showdown Presents: the EIGHTH ANNUAL REASONABLE DOUBT! LIVE! From the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland on Saturday, February 27th! Doors open at 5PM, show begins at 6. )

(Camera transitions backstage to a smiling Max A. Million with a microphone in hand)

Max: Many people are calling this the biggest King of Elite ever witnessed, and it certainly seems that way after a massive start between Mr. DEDEDE and Ryan Savage in that hellacious Tables, Ladders, and Chairs Match! And there’s still PLENTY more to come! Here with me at this time, I have THREE Champions that will be defending their Titles here tonight. Please welcome, three members of Hexa-gun: Eris LeCava, Y2Impact, and the Heart Break Gal.

(Camera pans to the right to reveal Eris, Impact, and HBG in their ring gear with their Championships)

Max: Now, I think it goes without saying, that Hexa-gun has been a very dominant force since they arrived on the scene back at Mid-Summer Massacre. However, tonight, you face a HUGE challenge as Eris must defend her Vixens Championship against–

???: Well, well, well….

(Max and the others look over to the left as Drake Jaeger, Tiberius Jones, and Luzmala walk into frame)

Drake: What do we have here? If it isn’t The Mercenaries and little Eris LeCava. Is that how it is now? Are we no longer good enough to be interviewed with the rest of Hexa-gun? What, cause we’re not Champions? Well, that changes TONIGHT.

Impact: Drake.

Drake: Impact. HBG.

HBG: Drake. Tiberius.

Tiberius: HBG. Eris.

Eris: Drake. Tiberius. Luzmala.

(Everyone looks at Luzmala, who says nothing)

Impact: I see you still have a perm.

Drake: I see you still have the nipples of a Chinese man.

(Drake and Impact get nose to nose… Before smiling and shaking hands. The rest of Hexa-gun except Luzmala greet one another as a confused Max looks on)

Drake: I bet HRDO specifically asked that you three be the only ones interviewed, didn’t he?

HBG: I wouldn’t doubt it. If I had a hairline like his, I’d always be taking my aggression out on others too.

Drake: Right, right. Well there you have it, Max. As you can see, Hexa-gun is doing just fine, regardless of HRDO’s absolutely ridiculous Goddamn attempts to drive a wedge between us!

Max: I… That wasn’t even what I was talking about when you–

(Drake puts his hand in front of Max’s mouth)

Drake: Hush now. Also, leave now. Hexa-gun wishes to be alone. Except for you, cameraman. You stay.

Max: Well… It’s kind of a whole interview kind of thing, and I–

Drake: Max, have you ever been beaten to death on worldwide Television?

Max: Gotcha.

(Max quickly scurries away as Hexa-gun unites, speaking to one another)

Tiberius: Hey, I’ve got an idea. How about, instead of wasting EVERYONE’s time like HRDO is trying to do by bullying Hexa-gun and attempting to break us up, we instead take this valuable television time to take a family photo. How’s that sound?

Drake: TJ, you’re like the brother I never wanted. I would be honored to take a family photo with all of you.

Eris: Let’s do it!

(Hexa-gun comes together in front of the camera as Drake gets hesitant around Luzmala)

Drake: Should I… Can I put my hand on his shoulder?

Impact: I wouldn’t.

Drake: I’ll hover-hand it. Cameraman, get to taking that picture!

Cameraman: This… It’s a video camera.

Drake: I didn’t say IF you can do it, I said to do it! You–

???: Might if I ask what you think you’re doing?

(Hexa-gun looks off to the side as an annoyed Drake steps forward and yanks the camera away from the cameraman)

Drake: And now I shall make an asshole magically appear!

(Drake moves the camera over to where an unamused HRDO is standing)

HRDO: I believe this interview was meant only for the Champions in Hexa-gun.

Tiberius: And I believe EAW is meant for people that started wrestling AFTER the Stone Age, and yet, here you are.

Impact: Your little tricks aren’t worth our time, HRDO. The song remains the same every time: Hexa-gun will walk out victorious, regardless of who’s the Tag Team Champions. We also have no doubt that Eris will retain her Vixens Championship.

HRDO: So, you’re saying that you won’t mind at all if you and HBG lose? You won’t mind being beaten? You’re right, you guys must be a tight-knit group.

HBG: We don’t plan on losing.

Tiberius: And neither do we.

Drake: Goddamn it! He’s doing it again! He’s doing it again! I’ve had it with your B.S., HRDO! You and me, HRDO! One one one! You bring the ass, I’ll bring the foot!

HRDO: Relax, relax, I’m not here to start a fight or anything. I don’t even really mind how you just ruined this interview. I just happened to be looking for you four: HBG, Impact, Drake, and Tiberius.

HBG: What do you want?

HRDO: Well, it’s mainly for Drake & Jones, but I figured you guys would like to know too. See, I can’t have ANY funny busy going on out there between you two teams, right?

Impact: We never planned on it. You can go now, if that’s all you’ve got to say.

HRDO: Not quite. You see, I can’t just take that chance of simply trusting you to not try anything, so I decided to add a little something to the match.

Tiberius: …. What?

HRDO: Well, I’ll be watching very closely, and it it seems like something is off and you guys may be pulling anything… Well, there’s no easy way to put this: You will be fired.

Drake: You don’t have the balls to fire all four of us!

HRDO: No, no – not The Mercenaries. They’re too valuable as the EAW Unified Tag Team Champions. I mean, if there’s anything funny going on, you, Drake Jaeger, and you, Tiberius Jones, will be fired. And you won’t be coming back. Alright? Alright. You all have a good match now. Good luck to you too, Eris, your match is up next. I suggest you stop wasting your time here and go get ready.

(HRDO smiles and walks off as Hexa-gun glares at him)

( Camera goes back out to the arena, and the ring crew is still working on fixing the minitron while the cleaning crew are hurriedly cleaning the ringside environment following the Tables, Ladders and Chairs match… the Ring Announcer then enters the ring. )

RA: This next match… IS FOR THE EAW VIXEEEENSSS CHAMPIONSHIPPPPPP!!!

(“Robot Bosses” by Devastus blasts over the speakers to a rousing ovation as Cloud Matsuda walks out. She walks down the ramp and high fives all of her fans who are chanting her name)

RA: Introducing first, the challenger, hailing from Tokyo, Japan, weighing in at 130 pounds….CLOUDDDDD MATSUDAAAAAAAA!

Stew: Cloud has made a real name for herself since stepping into EAW in August, she’s developed a real relationship with the fans and has a loyal fanbase as you can all see. She has deserved this shot at the title and she will be dying to grab this opportunity.

Deadprez: But Cloud Matsuda’s essentially had a bit of a dark cloud hanging over her head since getting this opportunity, as Eris LeCava and Luzmala have been hard at work for weeks trying to play mind games with our number one contender.

( Recap video package plays of the story between Cloud Matsuda and Eris LeCava. It starts off at the EAW Awards Show showing the tag team match between Sexy Curry and Eris LeCava & Luzmala, which resulted in Luzmala hitting the No Dios on Haruna, taking her out of EAW while Cloud Matsuda retreats from the match, frozen in fear. It then shows Luzmala haunting Cloud Matsuda, reminding her of her betrayal and looking about like a dark shadow, watching Cloud’s every turn. She’s shown winning the Vixens Championship # 1 Contendership Beat The Clock Challenge on Battleground, and is then seen facing off with Eris LeCava as the two exchange words. Finally, Luzmala’s haunting sentiments on Battleground are shown, offering Cloud one more chance at running away while she still can. )

( Cut back to the ring, and Cloud’s music dies down as she is warming up in the ring, waiting for her opponent. )

Deadprez: It will certainly be an up-hill battle for Ms. Matsuda, but an up-hill battle is nothing foreign to this young woman. She’s fought long and hard to get here already, and I don’t count on her stopping now.

(“Call Me By Blondie” plays over the speakers… soon after, Eris LeCava walks out followed by Luzmala, she slowly walks down the ramp as Luzmala trails behind, she climbs into the ring and lifts the Vixens Championship in front of Cloud.)

RA: And her opponent… accompanied by Luzmala… hailing from Tampa, Florida, weighing in at 129 pounds…THE VIXENS CHAMPION OF THE WORLD…ERISSSSS LECAVAAAAAAA!!

Deadprez: Here comes our Vixens Champion! She is followed in tow by the looming presence of Luzmala, Cloud looks frozen in fear as she clearly remembers the events of the the Awards Show when Luzmala ripped Haruna apart and put her out of action.

Stew: And you can’t really blame Cloud for having Luzmala in the back of her mind, knowing that any point he could lay her to waste the same way he did Haruna. But this is EXACTLY what Eris wants, she wants Cloud to be as distracted and unfocused as she can so she can capitalize. I really hope Cloud can see through Hexa-Gun’s plan.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: This Vixens Championship contest is underway! Both Cloud and Eris move into the centre of the ring, they then go straight into a Collar-and-elbow tie up. Cloud manages to back Eris back into the corner. Cloud breaks away from the tie up and quickly hits a chop on Eris! You could hear that chop from here! Cloud with a second chop and now a third! She’s going to light up Eris’ chest to a different colour at this rate! Eris pushes Cloud away and holds her chest, Cloud straight away fires back with a forearm which connects right into Eris’ jaw! Eris wobbles backwards and Cloud with a high rise dropkick! Cloud straight into the cover…

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE

Deadprez: KICKOUT BY ERIS! Eris wasn’t messing about there, she got the shoulder up straight away! Cloud wasn’t even able to get a two count, Eris just got her shoulder up. Surely Cloud didn’t think that she could get a three count there?

Stew: Of course, not, Prez, but kicking out of a pin takes effort and energy which Cloud does know. She just wants to wear Eris down and forcing her to kick out of pinfalls will slowly but surely wear Eris down.

Deadprez: Cloud has grabbed Eris back to her feet and hits a snap suplex! Cloud without any hesitation picks Eris back up again.. EXPLODER SUPLEX! Cloud really showing her technically wrestling ability right now. Eris has just rolled out of the ring here before Cloud could pick her back up again, this is a smart move by our Vixens Champion. Cloud can’t pin her out here! However, Cloud has slid out the ring and is now approaching Eris.

Stew: Cloud walks towards Eris…but Luzmala has just stood right up front of Eris! Cloud’s face suddenly just drops and she takes a big gulp. After what Luzmala did to Haruna, Cloud really doesn’t want to suffer the same fate. Cloud slowly backs away from Luzmala in complete fear..Eris quickly runs from behind Luzmala and catches Cloud with a DOUBLE AXE HANDLE! Cloud gets taken to the floor off the Luzmala distraction! You can’t say this is a shock, Luzmala’s presence there, as you can tell, is solely to intimidate!

Deadprez: He’s intimidated some of the biggest names in all of EAW by his ability to lay waste to multiple men in an instant, you can’t tell me you wouldn’t at least be taken off course by seeing that monster out there for YOUR match! Eris now picks Cloud back to her feet and rolls her back into the ring. I feel sorry for Cloud having to do with Luzmala’s presence looming over here during this match, how is she supposed to concentrate with him around? Eris climbs back into the ring and puts Cloud’s neck right under those ropes. Eris then grabs Cloud’s legs…catapult right into the bottom rope! Cloud’s neck just smashed into that bottom rope and she is coughing in pain! Eris has now dragged Cloud back into the middle of the ring and is smashing away at Cloud with forearm after forearm! Cloud is trying to protect herself from these clubbing blows but Eris is not letting up!

Stew: Eris gets back to her feet and pulls Cloud up so that she is sat up. Eris bounces off the ropes, boot right to Cloud’s face! Eris now bounces off the ropes again and hits a leg drop on Cloud! Eris in firm control of this match now… Eris once again picks Cloud back to her feet, she then irish whips her into the corner. Eris runs straight at Cloud, she goes for a splash…but CLOUD DODGES OUT OF THE WAY! Eris smashes into that turnbuckle! Eris wobbles backwards, Cloud grabs him by the waist… GERMAN SUPLEX! BEAUTIFUL GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE BRIDGE!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…

Deadprez: KICKOUT BY ERIS! Eris just managed to get her shoulder up there, Cloud was milliseconds away from capturing the Vixens Championship! Cloud realises just how close she was as a look of frustration takes over her face. Eris was just dumped right on her head from that suplex!

Stew: Cloud isn’t going to mess about though, she gets back to her feet straight away. She then runs against the ropes…but Cloud stops dead in her tracks before she even reaches the ropes. Luzmala is staring right at her! Cloud has just frozen in fear looking at Luzmala, Cloud is having to battle both Eris and her own fear tonight! LUZMALA GETS UP TO THE APRON, IS HE GOING TO ATTACK!? Cloud is still just stood still…Eris is back to her feet and has noticed this. She grabs Cloud and hits a BACK BODY DROP! Once again, the presence of Luzmala has put Eris back in control of this match. It really pays to have someone as intimidating as Luzmala by your side. Eris now just gives Cloud a slight kick to her jaw while she is down.

Deadprez: Cloud has rolled onto her back, Eris stands faces away from Cloud…Standing Moonsault from Eris! Eris showing absolutely incredible athleticism, how did she get so much height from a standing start? Eris into the cover!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Stew: KICKOUT BY CLOUD! Cloud just manages to get a shoulder up before it’s too late! Eris runs her fingers through her hair in frustration that she didn’t get the three count. Eris now gets back to her feet and is screaming at Cloud to get back up. Cloud is gingerly making her way back to her feet, she is clearly struggling a little bit. Eris has grown inpatient and has just grabbed Cloud..ERIS IS GOING FOR THE ON’NA, SHE’S TRYING TO HIT THAT BELLY TO BELLY TO SUPLEX!! … CLOUD IS FIGHTING OUT THOUGH, SHE CONNECTS WITH A HEADBUTT WHICH SENDS ERIS REELING…CLOUD WITH THE SUPERKICK!…BUT ERIS DUCKS AND CLOUDS SUPERKICKS THE REFEREE! OH MAN WHAT A SHOT! Matsuda looks absolutely mortified by what she has done, Eris with a superkick to Cloud as Cloud was distracted looking at the ref! Cloud is down..but more importantly, so is the referee! Eris can’t pin Cloud here.

Deadprez: Eris is now shouting to Luzmala, what does she want from him?! Luzmala walks across to the timekeepers area and is demanding a chair. He just throws a man off a chair like a freaking disposable item and grabs it! He then walks over and hands it to Eris… Eris is going to do some real bad stuff with that chair! She is just waiting for Cloud to get back to her feet here. She wants Cloud up so she can wrap it around her head…………….. WAIT…WHO THE HELL IS THAT RUNNING DOWN THE RAMP?!!

Stew: IT’S HARUNA!!! HARUNA SPRINTS DOWN THE RAMP AND SLIDES IN, SHE TACKLES ERIS DOWN STRAIGHT AWAY AND IS JUST UNLEASHING LEFTS AND RIGHTS INTO ERIS’ FACE!

Deadprez: I CAN’T BELIEVE HARUNA IS BACK! THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE’VE SEEN HERE SINCE THE AWARDS SHOW! WE THOUGHT SHE’D BE OUT WAY LONGER THAN THIS, BUT SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY SHE’S BACK AND SHE’S HERE TO HELP HER FRIEND!

Stew: HARUNA NOW GETS UP FROM ERIS AND SHE HAS GRABBED THAT CHAIR THAT ERIS GOT LUZMALA TO GIVE HER! HARUNA SCREAMS AT ERIS TO GET BACK TO HER FEET NOW! ERIS HAS STUMBLED BACK TO HER FEET…HARUNA CRACKS THE CHAIR OVER THE HEAD OF ERIS! ERIS JUST COLLAPSES BACKWARDS ONTO THE CANVAS! HARUNA IS SAVING THE DAY!!!

Stew: Cloud has now made it back to her feet and she straight away hugs Haruna for what she has done here! A beautiful moment between two friends. Haruna is now telling Cloud to get Eris and finish her off here. Cloud lets go of Haruna from the hug now… WHAT!?!? NO WAY!!! HARUNA KICKS CLOUD IN THE STOMACH! WHAT THE HELL? HARUNA SPINS AND CONNECTS WITH THE LAPIS LAZULI!!!! SHE HITS THAT SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK ON HER ALLY!!! CLOUD HAS BEEN COMPLETELY KNOCKED OUT HERE BY HER OWN FRIEND, HARUNA HAS NOW EXITED THE RING AND IS WALKING BACK UP THE RAMP WITH A LOOK OF SCORN ON HER DAMNED FACE! WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT ALL ABOUT!?

Deadprez: DO YOU SEE THAT LOOK ON HER FACE, STEW? THAT’S A GRATIFIED LOOK, THAT’S WHAT LUZMALA WAS WARNING ABOUT THIS ENTIRE TIME! HARUNA SAKAZAKI HAS COME BACK WITH BITTER SCORN TO ASSAULT HER I GUESS NOW FORMER ALLY!

Deadprez: THE REF IS NOW BACK UP, ERIS HAS ALSO MANAGED TO REGAIN CONSCIOUS! ERIS CRAWLS OVER AND DRAPES AN ARM ONTO CLOUD! NOT LIKE THIS!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Stew: CLOUD KICKS OUT! CLOUD KICKS OUT OF TWO, BUT JUST BARELY!! UNBELIEVABLE FORTITUDE FROM CLOUD MATSUDA!! AND ERIS DRAGS CLOUD UP FROM THE GROUND, KNOWING DAMN WELL CLOUD HAS NOTHING LEFT, AND ERIS HITS THE ON’NA!!! HIGH IMPACT BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX! AND ANOTHER COVER!

Ref: OOONEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEE!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Call Me” by Blondie hits. Eris slowly makes her way back to her feet as Luzmala enters the ring to help her, Eris then is handed her Vixens Championship and has her arm raised in victory. )

RA: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…AND STILL THE VIXENS CHAMPION OF THE WORLD…ERISSSSS LECAVAAAAAAA!!!

Stew: By hook or by crook, folks, Eris LeCava has retained her title.

Deadprez: What a match though! A fantastic back and forth match between two brilliant vixens. Cloud showcased her ability to the world tonight but it was Eris who walked away with the Vixens Championship still around her waist.

Stew: Yeah, but I can’t get my mind of off what Haruna’s done… I definitely need an answer for that one. Has Haruna perhaps sided with Hexa-Gun? Is this just out of pure jealousy and spite for the fact that Cloud can get a title match while Haruna has to sit on the shelf? I just don’t understand…

( Camera fades backstage, as the screen fills with Cailin Dillon, the EAW Specialist Champion, looking on in disgust from a TV monitor backstage. )

Cailin: They dare call… THAT, a worthy champion? Pfft… Hexa-Gun for ya. (no)

???: I’m rather inclined, to agree.

( Cailin seems startled, as she turns around, and to her surprise… Face to face with Showdown General Manager James Shields! )

Shields: What can I say, I call them like I see them. And that, whatever THAT was, wasn’t the finish we wanted. But then again, it is tough company, when compared to a champion that is forced to defend her championship on a regular basis. And just had a spectacular match against Aria this past week.

Cailin: Am I supposed to be flattered?

Shields: Perhaps, but take it as you may. I do… have a rather liking to that Specialist Championship hovering around your waist. Perhaps even take a bit of onus to it, a bit of pride. It has produced great matches, and great competition.

Cailin: This isn’t anything new to me.

Shields: Precisely. Reasonable Doubt is around the corner, after all. And if you are fortunate enough to be holding it by then, I might be interested in booking Champion vs Champion… That way we can see just who the dominant champion in our elite women’s division truly is. Just something to ponder about. Enjoy the show, Ms. Dillon.

( Shields walks off, as Cailin looks on surprised, not sure on how to react before the camera fades… )

(A promo package plays, recapping Hexa-gun’s dominance since their inception at Mid-Summer Massacre, beating teams opposing them at Territorial Invasion and Shock Value, and reigning with multiple Championships. The recap then shows Drake & Jones winning the first ever EAW Tag Team Grand Prix while The Mercenaries are defeated in a Elimination Chamber for the fate of the company at Road To Redemption. HRDO is shown playing Hexa-gun members against each other before forcing Drake & Jones to challenge for the Unified Tag Team Championships against their own Hexa-gun comrades at King of Elite)

(The camera transitions back to the Allstate Arena where the Ring Announcer stands in the middle of the ring with a microphone in hand)

Announcer: The following Tag Team contest is scheduled for ONE fall… AND IS FOR THE E-A-W UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIIIIIPPPPPPSSS!!!……..

Mack: Definitely a unique match tonight at King of Elite and I can’t wait to see how Hexa-gun fairs! Let’s get to it!

(The stage has been darkened with only a spotlight on the center of it where a microphone stands as an unknown man in a suit walks out with a note in his hand)

Man: This, uh, next Tag Team asked me not to read this… But Goddamn it, I’m going to read it anyway, because I WROTE it, and it’s the TRUTH…. I FREAKING LOVE THIS TAG TEAM.

(The unknown man stops reading off the card and puts it away in his jacket as he continues to speak)

Man: THEY ARE THE BEST TAG TEAM IN THE WORLD, PERIOD. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…. DRAKE AND JONES!!!!!!

(The unknown Man leaves as Drake Jaeger – dressed in black trunks and a black, leather, studded trenchcoat and mesh shirt on – nonchalantly makes his way out to the stage with Tiberius Jones – dressed in black trunks, a studded Drake & Jones t-shirt, and a black bandana with skulls on it on his head)

Drake: Hey, what’s up. Me and TJ made up this entrance five minutes ago.

(The beginning of Tenacious D’s “Master Exploder” begins to play all throughout the arena as Tiberius and Drake stay still)

“AaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH – AGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!”

(Pyro explodes across the stage as Drake & Jones come alive and make their way down the ramp)

“YEAH!!!”

(A mash-up of “Master Exploder” by Tenacious D and and “Bite the Bullet” by contRoVersy continues to play as Drake & Jones make their way towards the ring)

Kawajai: What the Hell am I looking at?

Mack: Didn’t you hear the man, Kawa? They’re the Best Tag Team in the World, PERIOD! Don’t go questioning their methods of making an entrance!

Kawajai: Well, they may consider themselves the best, but I’d think this next team would disagree, comrades or not.

(A mash-up of the theme song of The Flash and “Would” by Alice in Chains plays all throughout the arena as Y2Impact and the Heart Break Gal make their way out to the stage dressed in similar Flash-inspired red and yellow gear and the Unified Tag Team Championships around their waists)

Announcer: And their opponents…. Making their way towards the ring…. Weighing in at a combined weight of 361 pounds!…. Representing Hexa-gun…. THEY ARE THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING E-A-W UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!……. THE HEART BREAK GAL AND Y2IMPACT…. THE MEEEEERRRRCCCCEEENNNAAARRIIIEESSSS!!!……

Mack: I want you to think about this – these two individuals right here come THIS close to taking control of this entire company at Road To Redemption, Kawa! Y2Impact and the Heart Break Gal have easily proven themselves to be one of – if not THE most dominant Tag Team to have ever stepped into EAW and you can see it on their faces! Even up against their own friends and comrades, these two look as ready for battle as ever! For over six months they’ve reigned and beaten the best in the game, so let’s see if they can do it again here tonight! I’m ready! Let’s get it started!

(The Referee is handed the Unified Tag Team Championships and holds them up for everyone to see while both teams discuss who starts the match. The Referee hands off the Titles and calls for the bell as Tiberius and HBG get onto the apron while Drake and Impact remain in the ring)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Kawajai: This Tag Team Championship contest is officially underway as it looks like we’re gonna be starting this off with Drake Jaeger and Y2Impact. You’ve got to be wondering what’s going through the head of Drake, having to take on the two people that brought him IN to EAW.

Mack: I don’t think I want to know what’s going on in Drake’s head period, Kawa.

Kawajai: Fair enough, but it looks like the two men are gonna start this one off with a test of strength… No–Impact instead pulls Drake straight into a side headlock! Drake’s struggling… He slips out of the side headlock and immediately applies one of his own to Impact… Impact swings an elbow into the mid-section of Drake! Another elbow connects as Drake breads the headlock and Impact quickly follows it up with a big forearm! Nobody’s home as Drake ducks it! Impact quickly turns around! YAMCHA’D!!!

Mack: No–not so fast! Drake hesitates to go through with it! Drake Jaeger showing perhaps a little too much emotion here! BUT IMPACT CERTAINLY ISN’T GOING THROUGH THE SAME DILEMMA AS HE GRABS THAT EXTENDED LEG OF DRAKE AND DROPS HIM FLAT ON HIS BACK! HE’S FIGHTING TO GET THE OTHER LEG! AND HE GETS IT! DRAKE’S DOING ALL HE POSSIBLY CAN TO PREVENT THE WALLS OF IMPACT THIS EARLY ON IN THE MATCH! DRAKE MANAGES TO ESCAPE IT AS HE USES HIS LEGS TO TOSS IMPACT OFF! Both men scramble back to their feet and stare down! These fans are loving seeing these members of Hexa-gun come at one another like this, but you can tell they’re not too thrilled themselves… Drake now backing away into his team’s corner, and there’s a tag to Tiberius Jones. It looks like Drake isn’t quite prepared for all this quite yet as Tiberius enters the ring, ready and raring to go…

Kawajai: Tiberius had been in EAW for nearly a year by the time he joined forces with Hexa-gun, so it seems as though he isn’t having quite as much trouble as he and Impact lock up in the center of the ring… Tiberius catches Impact in a front chancery! Impact immediately navigates both men into the ropes before Tiberius can apply further pressure.

Referee: ONE! TWO!

Mack: Tiberius breaks the hold–AND IMPACT SEIZES THE CHANCE TO CATCH HIM WITH A KNIFE-EDGE CHOP! You could hear that up in the cheap seats! The seasoned veteran Y2Impact has Tiberius Jones exactly where he wants him as he sets him up.. And connects with a second echoing knife-edge chop to the sternum, lighting Jones up! AND A THIRD CHOP–NO! Tiberius has that last one scouted as he ducks it and catches Impact with a big forearm as the former World Champion turns around! Tiberius unloading with a flurry of forearms into Impact before he sends him off, into the ropes with a big irish whip! Impact comes back with momentum as TIBERIUS CHARGES WITH A BIG DROPKICK! IMPACT STOPS HIMSELF AND CATCHES THE LEGS OF TIBERIUS! IMPACT IS ONCE AGAIN ON THE VERGE OF LOCKING IN THE WALLS OF IMPACT AS TIBERIUS FIGHTS IT! TIBERIUS CONTORTS HIS LEGS AND PULLS IMPACT IN FOR A MODIFIED VICTORY ROLL OUT OF NOWHERE!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!

Kawajai: And Impact kicks out of it at one as both men scramble to get to their feet! Impact is up first as he charges! Tiberius catches him with a beautiful hip toss! Before Impact can get back up, Tiberius catches him in another headlock! Impact can’t seem to escape it as they both climb back to their feet… Tiberius navigates he and Impact to Drake & Jones’ corner… There’s a tag back to Drake Jaeger.. Hopefully Drake’s got his head back in the game as he hops into the ring and takes the headlock from Tiberius… IMPACT IMMEDIATELY PICKS JAEGER UP–LOOKING FOR A BACKDROP DRIVER PERHAPS! But Drake manages to roll off the shoulder of Impact and catches him with a waist lock! PICKING HIM UP FOR A POTENTIAL GERMAN SUPLEX! Impact fights it, blocking the attempt and swinging an elbow into the side of Drake’s head! DRAKE QUICKLY CHANGES COURSE AND TAKES IMPACT DOWN WITH A SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! He doesn’t look finished yet as he drags Impact back to his feet with that full-nelson still in on him! AND A SECOND, MORE DEVASTATING DRAGON SUPLEX CONNECTS ON IMPACT!! Drake Jaeger could be looking for the full hat trick with Rock The Dragon as he brings his mentor back to his feet..

Mack: Impact isn’t giving up as he swings his head back into the face of Drake! One arm of Impact escapes the full-nelson as he uses it to nail Drake with another elbow to the side of the skull! IMPACT CHARGES FORWARD WITH DRAKE STILL ON HIM–HE MANAGES TO THROW DRAKE OFF AND SENDS HIM CRASHING INTO THE MERCENARIES’ CORNER! Impact makes the tag to the Heart Break Gal for the first time in this contest, and she’s wasting no time getting to work as she climbs up to the top turnbuckle with Drake still trapped in that corner, potentially injured… AND HBG DROPS A DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP STRAIGHT INTO THE KIDNEYS OF JAEGER! Drake slips out of the corner and falls on his rear end as HBG follows it up with a boot straight to the face! Drake is hurt and cornered here by The Mercenaries as HBG charges into the ropes from the opposite side of the ring now… AND COMES IN FULL FORCE WITH A BOOT THAT SWIPES ACROSS THE FACE OF DRAKE! There’s a tag back to Impact as he gets back in and goes to work with some vicious stomps of his own into Drake!

Kawajai: Absolutely no holding back from the Tag Team Champions in this match! They want to WIN! That’s all there is to it! Impact puts a stop to the assault and tags HBG back into the match as she jumps over the ropes and SWINGS HERSELF INTO A STILL DOWNED DRAKE JAEGER FOR A UNIQUE DROPKICK! The end may be nigh for Drake as HBG grabs a hold of him and drags him into a propped up position in the corner… She’s got a look of full confidence here as she backs up… AND COMES BARRELING TOWARDS DRAKE! HOLD ON–DRAKE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER WITH A BIG LARIAT! NOBODY’S HOME AS HBG DUCKS IT! DRAKE QUICKLY TURNS AROUND TO–PELE KICK!! A BIG PELE KICK CONNECTS BY HBG AS DRAKE IS LAID OUT! DRAKE MANAGED TO CAPTURE A WIN OVER HER THE OTHER WEEK AND THAT MAY HAVE BEEN SOME PAYBACK AS SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!…….. TWO!!

Mack: It’s broken up by Tiberius Jones! He’s not taking any chances here as the Referee tells him to get out of here! Impact tries to get himself involved as well, but the Referee gets in his way and scolds him to get back to his team’s corner as well! That interference from his partner may have been exactly what Drake Jaeger needed as he starts crawling his way towards Tiberius Jones, looking for a much-needed tag! HE’S ALMOST THERE! NO–HBG LATCHES ONTO HIS FOOT! SHE’S NOT LETTING HIM TAG OUT OF THIS! Drake’s desperate to get to Tiberius as he slowly makes it up to his feet, hobbling on one leg! HE PULLS HIMSELF FORWARD, SENDING HBG WITH HIM AND INTO THE OPPOSING TEAM’S CORNER AS TIBERIUS PUTS A KNEE UP THAT CATCHES AN INCOMING HBG RIGHT IN THE JAW! A damaged HBG tries to get back to her feet as quickly as she can, she–DRAKE RUSHES IN FROM BEHIND WITH A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL! There’s the tag to Tiberius as Drake grabs a hold of HBG! Tiberius climbs up! DRAKE RUNS UP THEIR TEAM’S CORNER FOR AN ASSISTED DEVASTATING SHIRANUI!! TIBERIUS IMMEDIATELY LEAPS OFF THE TOP FOR A BIG FLYING ELBOW DROP!! NO–HBG IS PULLED OUT OF HARM’S WAY BY Y2IMPACT ON THE OUTSIDE!

Kawajai: It may be a bit underhanded to do that, but it was effective nonetheless as that could have been the turning point in this match that Drake & Jones needed… HOLD ON–LOOK OUT!! DRAKE JAEGER COMES CHARGING OUT OF NOWHERE WITH GODSPEED!!! A DAMAGED HEART BREAK GAL STOPS JAEGER’S MOMENTUM DEAD IN ITS TRACKS WITH A SUPERKICK!! THAT TRAMP STAMP OUT OF NOWHERE AS DRAKE IS LIMP ON THE MIDDLE ROPE! BOTH HBG AND IMPACT PULL DRAKE OUT, LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG AS THEY’VE GOT HIM UP IN A SUPLEX POSITION!!

Mack: TIBERIUS RUSHES IN AND CATCHES BOTH HBG AND IMPACT WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE! He’s back in this already! You can tell those ribs are nagging him now, but he’s not one to stay down that easily as he looks to follow it up with something big here! TIBERIUS IS ENERGIZED! ADRENALINE’S RUSHING THROUGH HIS VEINS AS HE LOCKS HBG AND IMPACT IN HIS SIGHTS WHILE THEY AND DRAKE JAEGER RISE TO THEIR FEET! TIBERIUS CHARGES INTO THE ADJACENT ROPES… INCOMING!! SUICIDE DIVE!!! IMPACT AND HBG BOTH MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AS JONES CRASHES STRAIGHT INTO DRAKE JAEGER!! A POTENTIALLY FATAL MISCOMMUNICATION HAS POSSIBLY TAKEN DRAKE JAEGER OUT OF EQUATION HERE AS HBG AND IMPACT GRAB TIBERIUS AND SEND HIM ROLLING BACK INTO THE RING! I got a feeling Drake & Jones’ luck may have finally ran out here! They may have went through fifteen other teams, but none of those teams were The Mercenaries! The Heart Break Gal ascends to the top rope as Y2Impact rolls back into the ring and drags Tiberius slowly back to his feet… He–TIBERIUS ESCAPES FROM IMPACT’S GRIP AND SENDS HIM FORWARD INTO THE CORNER, KNOCKING HBG DOWN ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!

Kawajai: An annoyed Impact quickly turns around and charges! KAMEHAMEHA!!! THAT DOUBLE PALM-THRUST TO THE CHEST OF IMPACT! TIBERIUS FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A JUMPING ENZUIGIRI AS IMPACT IS DOWN!! IMPACT DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE AS TIBERIUS SEES A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY!! HE’S REVVED UP! THE HEART BREAK GAL IS DOING HER DAMNDEST TO GET BACK UP ON THE TOP AS TIBERIUS GETS TO HIS FEET! HE STARTS CHARGING WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM–RUSHING UP THE CORNER! HE’S GOT HER!! SEISMIC TOSS!!! A VIOLENT BACKFLIP BELLY TO BELLY OFF THE TOP ROPE CONNECTS FROM TIBERIUS JONES!! HE’S GOT IT HE HOOKS THE LEG OF THE HEART BREAK GAL!!

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

Mack: HBG KICKS OUT! SHE’S STILL SOMEHOW IN THIS! THAT MANEUVER MAY HAVE TAKEN A LOT OUT OF HER, BUT SHE’S BEEN THROUGH HELL AS IT IS JUST TO RETAIN THOSE CHAMPIONSHIPS! IT’S GONNA TAKE A LOT MORE TO PUT HER DOWN! Tiberius knows that now! He’s got to keep the damage coming! He’s got to put her down with everything he’s got! Tiberius rolls out, onto the apron as the damaged Heart Break Gal struggles to climb back to a vertical base! Look at the fire in Tiberius Jones’ eyes as he stalks the Heart Break Gal here! He’s clinching the top rope so tightly, waiting for the perfect moment to strike! HBG’s rising… TIBERIUS LEAPS TO THE TOP–IMPACT OUT OF NOWHERE RUSHES UP AND PUSHES HIM OFF THE TOP ROPE!! THE EVISCERATION!!!! HBG CATCHES AN INCOMING TIBERIUS JONES WITH A CRITICAL EVISCERATION IN MID-AIR OUT OF NOWHERE!! THAT’S IT! HBG STRUGGLES… BUT SHE MANAGES TO COVER JONES!!

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

Kawajai: IT’S BROKEN UP AS HBG IS DRAGGED TO THE OUTSIDE BY HER FOOT! YAMCHA’D!!! DRAKE JAEGER IS BACK TO LIFE AND IN A BIG BAD WAY AS HE LAYS THE HEART BREAK GAL OUT!! Drake is battered as he grabs a hold of a limp HBG and drags her back to her feet… He sends HBG rolling back into the ring in hopes that Tiberius Jones can capitalize and take the Tag Team Championships once and for all! HBG is struggling with everything she has left in her after taking that harsh superkick… Tiberius seems to be up first on his feet! THE STRIKE OF MIDNIGHT!!!! HE CATCHES HBG WITH THAT FORWARD SOMERSAULT CUTTER!!! THAT COULD BE IT!! HE SLOWLY ROLLS HER OVER–NO!! IMPACT IS NOW!! HE DRAGS TIBERIUS UP!! EVISCERATION!!!! A SECOND EVISCERATION ON TIBERIUS JONES IN THIS CONTEST!! IMPACT GRABS A HOLD OF HBG, LOOKING TO DRAG HER ONTO JONES FOR THE COVER!! LOOK OUT!! GALICK GUN!!!! DRAKE JAEGER TAKES Y2IMPACT OUT WITH THAT BUSAIKU OUT OF NOWHERE!!! DRAKE’S THE LAST ONE STANDING AMONG THESE MEMBERS OF HEXA-GUN AS HE STRUGGLES TO STAY ON HIS FEET! HE REACHES DOWN AND CLUTCHES THE HAIR OF THE HEART BREAK GAL–DRAGGING HER UP TO FINISH THE JOB!

Mack: SHE BREAKS FROM HIS GRIP–EVISCERATION!!!! JESUS–THEY’RE ALL OUT!! EVERY MEMBER OF HEXA-GUN IN THIS MATCH JUST LAID EACH OTHER OUT!! KEEP IN MIND THAT THE HEART BREAK GAL AND TIBERIUS JONES ARE THE LEGAL COMPETITORS IN THIS CONTEST! The Referee is barely maintaining order here! These two teams have gone all out on one another for the right to walk out of here as Unified Tag Team Champions! All four competitors are slowly fighting back to their feet here in the center of the ring… All four looking dazed and confused… They’re up! Tiberius nails Impact with a big forearm! Impact fires back with a knife-edge chop to the chest of Tiberius! HBG nails Tiberius with a boot to the face! Drake with an elbow to the face of HBG! Tiberius with a headbutt to Impact! Impact with a big right hand back to Tiberius! DRAKE CHARGES! HBG sidesteps it and manages to send him through the ropes and to the outside! HBG with an enzuigiri to Tiberius now! Impact grabs a hold of Jones! POSSIBLY SETTING HIM UP FOR THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS!! JONES FIGHTS IT WITH AN ELBOW TO THE FACE OF IMPACT! ANOTHER! IMPACT GIVES UP AND JUST SENDS TIBERIUS CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE THROUGH THE ROPES, NEXT TO JAEGER!

Kawajai: The Mercenaries aren’t finished just yet! Impact cups his hands! Looking for something as HBG gets ready… IMPACT SLINGSHOTS HBG OVER THE TOP WITH GREAT HANG TIME AS DRAKE & JONES ARE UP!! PROJECTILE MOTION!!! BOTH DRAKE AND JONES MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AS HBG CRASHES AND BURNS ON THE MAT WITH THAT FIVE-STAR FROGSPLASH!! A DAMAGED DRAKE AND JONES HAVE HBG LOCKED IN THEIR SIGHTS HERE ON THE OUTSIDE AS SHE PAINFULLY STRUGGLES TO GET UP TO HER FEET! THEY CHARGE!! SIMULTANEOUSLY ROLLING ELBOWS FROM BOTH SIDES!! NO–THEY’RE STOPPED BY IMPACT WITH A FLYING CROSSBODY TO THE OUTSIDE ONTO ALL THREE!! WHAT A SAVE THERE BY IMPACT! Impact seems to be the only one with life left in them in this grueling bout as he rises back to his feet and helps his partner up… He helps HBG back into the ring before grabbing a hold of Tiberius and sending him rolling back into the ring… Impact seems to be looking for finality here as he climbs up to his team’s corner, reaches in, and tags HBG to make him the legal man! Impact quickly enters the ring! HE CHARGES TO THE ROPES!! LIONSAULT!!! IT CONNECTS!! IMPACT LOOKS HURT, BUT HE SLOWLY MANAGES TO MAKE THE COVER!

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

Mack: TIBERIUS GETS A SHOULDER UP! SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, HE’S STILL IN THIS! IMPACT LOOKS LIKE HE’S HAD ENOUGH! Impact is yelling something to HBG! This may be all she wrote! Drake & Jones have put up a hell of a fight, but this seems to be about it! HBG slowly rises back to her feet as Impact drags Tiberius up… Hold on! Drake Jaeger looking to get back in this as he climbs up on the apron! HBG SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE! SHE NAILS DRAKE WITH A DROPKICK AS HE’S KNOCKED BACK DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE! THANKS FOR COMING! Tiberius just lost his last saving grace! IMPACT LOCKS IN A FULL-NELSON FOR THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS!! NO–TIBERIUS SLIDES OUT OF IT AND DROPS DOWN!!

I DON’T SEE HBG IN SIGHT!!

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

Mack: WE HAVE NEW CHAMPIONS!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Bite The Bullet” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as an exhausted Drake Jaeger and Tiberius Jones lay nearly motionless in the ring while the Referee grabs the Unified Tag Team Championships)

Announcer: The Winners of this contest by pinfall…. AND NNNNNEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWW E-A-W UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!!!…. THE TEAM OF DRAKE JAEGER AND TIBERIUS JONES…. DRAKE! AND!! JOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEESSSSS!!!!

Mack: WHAT A MATCH! WHAT A MATCH! HEXA-GUN JUST TOOK ONE ANOTHER TO THE ABSOLUTE LIMIT AND AS A RESULT, WE SHOCKINGLY HAVE NEW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS CROWNED!

Kawajai: I’m honestly shocked to see it, Eddie! I didn’t think we’d see these two teams even REALLY go at it with one another, let alone something like a Title change, but here we are! Tiberius Jones and Drake Jaeger pulled out a miracle and somehow, someway dethroned their mentors, their bosses, the Heart Break Gal and Y2Impact tonight!

Mack: And you can’t deny that was one HELL of a bout, Kawa! These two teams may be partners and loyal to one another, but tonight was all about walking out Tag Team Champions! They just gave it their absolute ALL in that ring!

Kawajai: Hold on…

(Tiberius Jones and Drake Jaeger slowly make it back up to their feet as Impact does the same while the Heart Break Gal rolls back into the ring and helps herself up using the ropes)

Kawajai: We may have a problem here between the two sides…. Impact just took that Tag Team Championship from Tiberius’ hand! HBG doesn’t look too pleased either!

Mack: Come on! Not like this!

Kawajai: We’ve seen how Impact acts towards those he took under his wing that try to upstage him, and I got a feeling we’re about to see history repeat itself…

(Impact looks at the Unified Tag Team Championship for several seconds)

Mack: Is that… A smirk on his face?

(Impact puts the Championship on Tiberius’ shoulder and pats it, exchanging words with him as Drake Jaeger and the Heart Break Gal do the same while shaking hands)

Mack: And would you look at that! See, Kawa, I told you! Nothing’s breaking this team up! Y2Impact, the Heart Break Gal, Tiberius Jones, Drake Jaeger, Eris LeCava, and Luzmala are the most dominant thing in wrestling today! You think they’d let something like this destroy them? They didn’t beat one another tonight! They beat that tyrant, HRDO! Hexa-gun is alive and kicking!

(Luzmala and Eris join Drake, HBG, Tiberius, and Impact in the ring as they celebrate with one another while HRDO is shown watching on a monitor backstage with a smirk on his face)

( Camera fades backstage, where EAW’s own Pierre McGuire is seen standing by… )

Pierre: Ladies and gentlemen, my guest at this time… THE EAW CHAMPION… JAMIEEEEEEEEEEEE O’HARAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

( Camera shifts, picturing O’Hara into the screen, as Pierre fires away. )

Pierre: This is the night, the event, Jamie. That you can erase ALL doubts, that you’re the best wrestler Showdown has to offer. Perhaps even to yourself, you can erase those doubts. Any words for King Lannister?

Jamie: Nothing… nothing but that Lannister should consider what he accomplished last year at this event, as nothing more but Fool’s Gold. He was able to parade himself in a robe, and call himself a king for a year. He should be satisfied with that feat, and proud of the opportunity. Because you see THIS, on my shoulder? The EAW Championship? He’s not worthy to wear it, to hold it, in my eyes.

But alas, my approval never meant a damn thing. But I will showcase to him, the world… that #AndStill is not a promise. It’s a fact. There is nothing more dangerous than a man who has something to prove… and be damned, I’m going to prove it.

( Jamie bolts off, as we head back to ringside at The Allstate Arena as the announcer is ready to call the next match.)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!

(“Sail” by AWOLnation plays as Drastik steps out of the curtain to a reaction of heavy boos from the crowd.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Oakland, California……weighing in at 225 pounds……DRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAASSTTTIIIKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!

Deadprez: Since returning, Drastik has become the talk of the wrestling world, controversial as always, he’s picked up right where he started as one of this company’s most polarising Elitists!!
It’s only been a month and already he has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, especially his opponent!

Stew-O: Drastik’s lack of a filter has gotten him in trouble plenty of times already, but If there’s one thing everyone knows about Drastik, it’s that no matter how big of a game he talks he almost always found a way to back it up! This right here is one of those situations, the first one he’s been in since coming back and it should be a hell of a test ; a test that he is no doubt prepared for!

(“Money Power Respect” by The LOX (Ft. Lil Kim and DMX) blasts out of the speakers as Carlos Rosso comes down the ramp with Mao by his side. He is in an all blue ensemble to celebrate his Dynasty leave. He slides into the ring, locking eyes with Drastik.)

Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Baton Rogue, Louisiana……….weighing in at 211 pounds…..he is “The Red Angel”…….CARLOOOOSSSS ROSSSOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Deadprez: Carlos Rosso has no love lost when it comes to Drastik as you can tell! In fact, you can say Carlos flat out hates the man’s guts! Following Drastik announcing his intentions of becoming World Champion, Carlos absolutely lost it and they have been at each other’s throats since!

Stew-O: Whether you like him or not, you can’t deny Carlos Rosso’s work ethic over the past year, he has busted his ass and from the way he sees it he has gotten nothing in return. Meanwhile Drastik returns and thinks he can become a champion right away, something the Red Angel won’t just let slide. Carlos sees Drastik as someone who represents entitlement and by defeating him here tonight, he would make a major statement, he’s not playing games anymore.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Deadprez: This match begins and — OH, RIGHT AWAY DRASTIK AND CARLOS ARE CHARGING EACH OTHER! RIGHTS AND LEFTS ARE BEING EXCHANGED, SHOT AFTER SHOT, THESE TWO ARE NOT LETTING UP! Carlos blocks a punch and then responds with one of his own that sends Drastik staggering back! Carlos uses the distance between them as he backs up and then sprints toward Drastik, charging him straight into the turnbuckle and going wild with those body shots! The referee now intervenes, trying to contain Carlos Rosso but Carlos is having none of that! He’s demanding the referee get his hands off him and in that brief moment of recovery, Drastik is able to burst out of the corner, drop under Carlos’ guard and hit him with a double leg takedown!

Stew-O: And now Drastik is turning it around on him! Carlos is putting his hands up to try and block it but Drastik is getting past them, he gets a clean shot straight to the face and Carlos has been stunned! Drastik is taking advantage now and starts hammering away at him, getting several more clean shots to the face while Carlos can’t fight back! Drastik is rearing back, his strikes getting slower but also heavier in impact with each forearm shot across the face, Carlos may be out in the opening moments here! Drastik rears back once more but WOAH! CARLOS SITS UP AND CATCHES HIM IN A GUILLOTINE CHOKE! THE CHOKE IS APPLIED AND CARLOS IS SQUEEZING AS HARD AS HE CAN TO DRAW EVERY LAST BREATH OUT OF DRASTIK!

Deadprez: Drastik is freaking out right now, Carlos is locking his legs around the waist of Drastik as Drastik is now kicking up a storm, trying to get traction to push himself out of the hold but Carlos has a tight grip! Drastik is now grabbing the tights of Carlos, pulling onto them as he goes to lift up Carlos while he maintains the guillotine! Drastik has him…and then slams him right into the turnbuckle! And then again! And one more time for good measure! Carlos lets go and is now sat up against the middle turnbuckle! SUPERKICK BY DRASTIK! Carlos’ head sinks down and Drastik pulls him in following that! Vertical suplex! Carlos is clutching his back in pain and trying to get back up but Drastik is watching him! He hits the ropes and comes back for a roundhouse kick! Carlos is down and Drastik drops to his level, hooking the leg for the first cover of the match! Could it be over already?

Referee: ONEEEEEEEE!!!…….TWOOOOOO!!!!……KICKOUT!!!!!!

Stew-O: Carlos Rosso pushes Drastik off of him and gets the shoulder up! This match is off to a wild start! Drastik is of course the first to get up to his feet though, watching Carlos as he gets to his before picking up momentum and running toward him while he gets to a knee! OH! Carlos cuts it close as he pops up and nails Drastik with the back elbow! Drastik scrambles back up to his feet but is then met with a clothesline! Carlos has a hold of his hair now as he guides Drastik face first into a turnbuckle! Drastik rests against it as Carlos attempts to shake the cobwebs, he is still a bit dazed from that opening flurry! He gathers his bearings and revisits Drastik! Corner clothesline this time and then he follows that up with an arm drag!

Deadprez: Drastik shows signs of life as he lifts his head up to look at his opponent but Carlos sees to it that he doesn’t get up, thanks to a boot to the temple! Drastik is on his back but rolls over onto his hands and knees. He’s starting to rise and again Carlos goes on the attack! Drastik sees it coming though and catches him in the abdomen with a few quick jabs and then a chop to the chest for good measure! Drastik uses the space given to him to return to a vertical base and hunch Carlos over with a spinning heel kick when he again sprints at him! He goes for another shoot kick but Carlos catches it! Enzuigiri to the back of the head! Carlos drops to the canvas as Drastik stands over him!

Stew-O: Drastik turns his back to Carlos and a smirk appears on his face! STANDING MOONSAULT! OH, BUT CARLOS GETS THE KNEES UP! Carlos tilts Drastik’s shoulders down to the mat in a small package, he’s looking to pull a fast one!

Referee: ONEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOO!!!!! THRRR — KICKOUT!!!!!

Deadprez: Drastik powers out of the small package and both rush to get up to their feet! Drastik ducks a swing from Carlos, floats over and has his body wrapped around Carlos in crucifix position! He pulls himself down, forcing Carlos to be dropped on his head and neck! Carlos is favoring that area as he moves over onto his knees and Drastik kips up! Carlos needs to think fast, Drastik is winding up for another roundhouse! Carlos evades it and with Drastik spun around, Carlos gets him in a waist lock! He’s moving Drastik around the ring, bringing him closer and closer to the ropes — BEFORE TOSSING HIM OVER THEM AND TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!

Stew-O: My god and did you see how Drastik fell!? Carlos just straight up threw Drastik over and sent him tumbling all the way down, his head bumped against the apron pretty bad! Carlos sure does look happy with himself about that, he’s walking around with confidence and pointing at what he has done as the referee is beginning to count Drastik out of the match!

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

Deadprez: Drastik is stirring on the outside as Carlos Rosso is gesturing for him to get back into the ring, he welcomes the fight, he’s testing Drastik, he wants him to prove himself! That was a real stinger of a fall though, Drastik can barely focus as he tries to stand back up, dropping back down to a knee every time he does so! Things are not looking good here for Drastik!

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

Stew-O: It seems that if Drastik isn’t going to bring the fight to Carlos, Carlos will bring the fight to Drastik! Carlos with a baseball slide right into the jaw of Drastik and sends him shooting backward into the steel barricade! The referee wishes to continue his count but Carlos threatens him to stop, he wants this fight to be decisive! Carlos steps between the ropes and steps onto the apron now as — DRASTIK TAKES HIS ARM AND SWEEPS THE LEG OF CARLOS, CAUSING HIS LOWER BACK TO HIT THE EDGE OF THE RING!

Deadprez: Drastik is quick to follow that up! He grabs Carlos and gives him a taste of his own medicine by sending him careening into the steel barricade himself! The referee being very lenient here as Drastik rolls back into the ring and watches Carlos slouched over on the ground! Drastik is just waiting for him to stand up and re-enter the ring! Carlos finally does get up and decides to take a walk to regain his composure but Drastik will be having none of that! Drastik hits the ropes……….TORNADO PLANCHA STRAIGHT OVER THE ROPES AND ONTO CARLOS!!! Drastik is showing that he hasn’t missed a beat in his absence as he displays great stamina by staying on Carlos, not letting him get a chance to breathe before bringing him to his feet so he can toss him back into the ring!

Stew-O: Drastik is not too far behind as he rolls into the ring himself and catches Carlos with a dropkick to the side of the head when he tries to crawl off! Drastik looks over the now down Carlos, checking for any signs of motion before turning around and once again going for a standing moonsault, which this time connects! Drastik presses his forearm down against the face of Carlos and hooks both of his legs, a very aggressive pin attempt here!

Referee: ONEEEEEE!!!!…..TWOOOOOOO!!!!…..THRRRR — KICKOUT!!!!

Deadprez: Carlos finds the wherewithal to get the shoulder up! Drastik gets up and grabs him by the arm. He uses his grip to drag Carlos up and into his clutches! Drastik has him set up, looking to go for the standing C4! Carlos is struggling though, jerking his head to crack skulls with Drastik and get his hold over him to loosen! Drastik lets go and wobbles into a spinning backfist! Carlos is going for a combination, rapid shots to the sternum, shoot kicks to the side — THE ONE HIT KILL! AN OVERHAND RIGHT TO THE JAW DROPS DRASTIK, HE’S OUT! Carlos isn’t covering, what’s he thinking?

Stew-O: He’s probably a bit suspicious of if Drastik is really down for the count, the guy is persistent! Carlos would rather be safe than sorry! He leans in and picks Drastik up out of the heap that he was in and sends him almost halfway across the ring with a T-Bone suplex! Drastik rolls over to a corner and brings himself up thanks to the ropes! He rests in that corner and while he does that, he is left defenseless as Carlos comes right at him with the Red Dynamic! Running double high knees straight to the face! Carlos backs off so that Drastik can fall straight down before pulling him away from the ropes, turning him over and covering!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!!……TWOOOOOOO!!!!!……THRRRRRRRRREEEEE —

Deadprez: Drastik kicks out only a split second before the ref’s hand hit the mat a third time, unbelievably close! Carlos Rosso can’t even believe it himself, he’s starting to pick up a sense of urgency. He knows that he needs to put Drastik away! Carlos Rosso is pulling off his gloves and hovers over Drastik, Carlos is going for a good old fashioned, bare knuckle beating on Drastik! This match is back to where it started ; something straight out of a street brawl! You can hear the smacking sound with each uppercut of Carlos’ that lands flush!

Stew-O: The eyes of Drastik are beginning to turn glazed over, if Carlos keeps up the pace of those hits the referee might need to stop the match! In fact, the official is getting himself involved right now, asking Carlos to stop so he can get an update on Drastik! Drastik is struggling to get back up to his feet, he’s pushing himself up but right now is kneeled over, trying to regain his focus! The official wants to call for the bell but Drastik pushes him away so he can run up to Carlos and sock him in the face! That was a HUGE right! Carlos almost fell there, he barely got back his footing! Now that he’s still, he adjusts his jaw and gets back in this!

Deadprez: The fight is back on, Stew! Carlos is ready to respond as he literally leaps right for Drastik to land that hit! Drastik puts his hands up before he can fall on his face and makes a recovery! Drastik with another blow! Carlos goes to swing again but Drastik stops him with a second right! A flurry now! He pushes Carlos into the ropes and bounces him off them with an Irish whip! Drastik is prepared to hit him with a back body drop on his return but Carlos puts the brakes on his momentum and gets Drastik a double underhook! Double Arm DDT! Drastik was spiked right on his head!

Stew-O: Carlos Rosso grabs Drastik by the legs and lifts him up in wheelbarrow position! He walks around the ring with Drastik’s upper body hanging in the air, and then drops him throat first onto the ring ropes! Drastik gasps for air and is then grabbed from behind! Dragon Suplex from Carlos and he bridges the pin!!

Referee: ONEEEEE!!!!…..TWOOOO!!!!……THRRRRRRRR —

Deadprez: Drastik was able to move his shoulders off of the mat! Drastik managing to save himself from defeat! Carlos is losing it right now! Drastik is immediately met with a Penalty kick to the gut! Carlos is looking to finish this once and for all! He places Drastik between his knees and has him in position for The Red Spike! HE HAS HIM UP AND GOES FOR IT! OH! Drastik makes sure his feet touch the mat once again and then maneuvers out of the move! STANDING C4 CONNECTS! Carlos is down but so is Drastik! Drastik is dragging himself onto the apron, slowly climbing up to the top rope! He can hardly keep his footing, his knees are buckling from exhaustion! He’s on spaghetti legs as he perches himself on the top, if he’s going to jump he needs to do it now before he falls…..STIGMATA!!!!!!! WHAT AN IMPACT, DRASTIK IS HOLDING HIS RIBS FROM THAT! HE CRAWLS BACK OVER ONTO CARLOS, COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!……..TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!……..THREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Sail” by AWOLnation plays as a still punch drunk Drastik wobbles around the ring, needing assistance from the referee as he raises his hand.)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner……..DRAAAAASSSSSTIIIIIIKKKKKKK!!!!

Deadprez: That wasn’t a match, that was an all out slugfest. Those two pushed each other to their limits physically, the punishment they took was crazy! Carlos put up a hell of a fight but at the end of the day, Drastik proved what he wanted to prove!

Stew: With that match I think it’s safe to say that Drastik isn’t just entitled, but that he really is just that damn good! He went out there and he put on a performance that was as good as the ones he had years back. Both of these men surprised us and gave us a hell of a match, kudos to both!

(Drastik shoves the referee off of his hand and away from him as he looks down at the disheveled husk of Carlos Rosso. Drastik laughs at the work that he has created before he takes his leave from the ring and waves sarcastically to Carlos.)

(The show returns back to the ring area with the captivated crowd of Illinois as the camera turns over to the ring announcer in the squared.)

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

(“Cosmic Sea” by DEATH blasts from the speakers as a very intimidating Rhaegar stepping out onto the stage with a sea of hatred from the crowd and spotlight on him, donning war paint of his face similar to Kratos, as he descends down the ramp with the lighting turning blood red.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first… he is from Sparta, Greece… weighing in at 220 pounds… “The Spartan Assailant” RHHAAAEEEEGGAAARRRRR!!!

Stew-O: Rhaegar has prepared for war tonight, Prez! He has called for this match against Tig Kelly, desiring to take his championship from him since House of Glass, and tonight he gets the chance to do just that!

Deadprez: It’s more than just that championship now, Stew! It’s about beating the champion into submission, making him recognize where he stands against Rhaegar, and nothing else! The championship is simply an additional prize for him to take!

(“Step Up (I’m On It)” by Maylene and the Sons of Disaster fills the arena as Tig Kelly walks out with a black leather jacket with the Irish flag stitched on his shoulders and back, raising the National Elite Championship high in the air as the crowd cheers.)

Ring Announcer: Making his way to the ring, he is from Galway, Ireland.. he weighs in at 212 pounds… he is the EAW NAATTTIIIIOOOOONNAAALLLLLL ELLIIITTTTEEEEE CHHAAAMMMMPPPPPIIOOONNNNNN… “The Ender” TIIIGGGGG KEELLLLLLLYYYYY!!!

Stew-O: Tig Kelly comes out tonight representing the Irish nation as he holds that National Elite Championship up for all to see! Tonight, Tig looks to make an example of Rhaegar as to why he’s The Ender!

Deadprez: That’s going to be a tall order, but Tig Kelly will do whatever he must to make it a reality! He’s the champion for a reason and will defend that title at all costs!

(The referee is handed the championship as he holds it up in the air before he takes it to the ring announcer and calls for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: This title bout has begun with Tig Kelly and Rhaegar staring down one another with hatred boiling in their eyes! Both men circle around the ring like wolves stalking their prey in the middle of the hunt! They rush towards one another and lock horns RIGHT BEFORE RHAEGAR INSTANTLY TOSSES TIG KELLY OFF OF HIM LIKE A FLY! WHAT STRENGTH FROM RHAEGAR AS HE SMIRKS TO THE CHAMPION THAT’S AT A KNEE! Tig Kelly looks with a grimace of his own as he nods his head!

Deadprez: This is a competition and Rhaegar just showed how Tig Kelly doesn’t have a chance at beating the strength of a “god”! It doesn’t take long before Tig and Rhaegar test each other with a lock-up THIS TIME WITH TIG SPINNING AROUND AND HOOKING THE WAISTLOCK ON RHAEGAR! Tig struggles to pick up Rhaegar with Rhaegar standing his ground AS RHAEGAR THROWS THE BACK ELBOW AND TURNS AROUND TO LOCK HIM IN THE SIDE-HEADLOCK!

Stew: Rhaegar wrenches down on the hold, wearing down his opponent, as Tig wills his way to forcing Rhaegar into the ropes and throwing him off with the momentum! Rhaegar bounces off the ropes COMING IN WITH THE LARIAT ON TIG KELLY! TIG DUCKS UNDER HIS LEGS AS RHAEGAR MISSES WILDLY! Rhaegar rebounds off the ropes again RETURNING TO A DROPKICK BY TIG KELLY THAT FLOORS THE SPARTAN!

Deadprez: Tig Kelly has Rhaegar downed and he intends to take advantage FIRING AWAY WITH STOMPS INTO THE FACE OF RHAEGAR BEFORE ALLOWING HIM TO EVEN REACH A KNEE! Tig picks him back to his feet as he grabs him by the head DRIVING HIM FACE-FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE AS RHAEGAR SPINS AROUND TO LEAN ON THE TURNBUCKLE!

Stew: Tig Kelly has gotten the challenger right where he wants him TEEING OFF WITH THOSE STIFF KICKS INTO THE CHEST OF RHAEGAR AS HE RUNS BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! TIG RETURNS WITH A CORNER DROPKICK RIGHT INTO HIS FACE AS RHAEGAR COLLAPSES DOWN TO THE MAT! Tig Kelly isn’t going for the cover yet! He intends to punish Rhaegar! Tig drags Rhaegar out of the corner towards the center of the ring SITTING RHAEGAR UP AS HE LOCKS HIM IN THE CHINLOCK AS HE DRIVES HIS KNEE INTO HIS SPINE WHILE PULLING HIS HEAD BACK BY THE CHIN!

Deadprez: Tig Kelly continues wrenching on the chin BUT THAT’S NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP RHAEGAR DOWN AS HE FLIPS TIG OFF OF HIM AS HE STARTS TO RISE BACK TO HIS FEET! Both men stand back up BUT TIG GETS THE UPPER HAND WITH THE ELBOW STRIKES! TIG FIGHTS BACK THE SPARTAN ASSAILANT WITH HIS ELBOWS TO FORCE HIM INTO THE ROPES! Tig whips Rhaegar across the ring BUT RHAEGAR SPINS OUT AND DOES HIS OWN!

Stew: Rhaegar bends down to try and catch Tig BUT TIG STRIKES WITH A PUNT KICK INTO THE FACE OF RHAEGAR! Tig runs back into the ropes to come back with a leg lariat BUT RHAEGAR CATCHES HIM WITH THE LARIAT THAT DECAPITATES TIG KELLY! ALL THE MOMENTUM THAT TIG HAD BUILT HAS JUST TURNED TO A SCREECHING HALT! Rhaegar starts holding his head from the offense that Tig Kelly has thrown on him as he starts to walk towards the fallen Ender!

Deadprez: Rhaegar pulls Tig Kelly up to his feet SLAPPING HIM IN THE FACE WITH THE DISRESPECT BEING BLATANT BEFORE DRIVING HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH THE SCOOP POWERSLAM! Tig Kelly rolls to the outside of the ring from the impact as Rhaegar steps out to follow! He grabs Tig by the head and pulls him up to his feet HOOKING HIM BY THE WAIST AS HE DRIVES HIM RIGHT INTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON! YOU COULD BREAK SOMEONE’S BACK DOING A MOVE SUCH AS THAT!

Stew: Rhaegar throws him back into the ring with Tig holding his back as he must be in excruciating pain! Rhaegar uses this opportunity to force Tig’s shoulders down to the mat LOOKING FOR THE PIN AGAINST HIS OPPONENT! COULD WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION?

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!

Deadprez: TIG KELLY GETS THE SHOULDER UP! That had to be hard to do though, considering his damage taken from that charge into the apron! Each time he kicks out, it makes it severely worse! Rhaegar grabs Tig by the head and brings the champion back to his feet STRIKING WITH A KNEE INTO HIS STOMACH BEFORE TOSSING HIM BACK INTO THE CORNER! Rhaegar strikes with a couple of punches to keep him in the corner AS HE THROWS TIG KELLY INTO THE TURNBUCKLE ACROSS THE RING!

Stew-O: WAIT! TIG KELLY FLIPS OVER THE TURNBUCKLE AS RHAEGAR LOSES HIS TARGET! TIG HOOKS HIM FROM BEHIND AS HE USES ALL OF HIS MIGHT TO GET RHAEGAR OFF OF HIS FEET! RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! HE JUST SUPLEXED RHAEGAR ACROSS THE RING INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING! WHAT A MOVE BY THE ENDER TO COME BACK INTO THE FRAY!

Deadprez: Rhaegar rolls to the outside to prevent Tig Kelly from getting the pinfall over him, but Tig Kelly isn’t disheartened by this as he gets pumped in the middle of the ring! Tig bounces off the ropes RUSHING BACK TO FLY THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE! IT CONNECTS AS RHAEGAR FLIES RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE! THE FANS ARE GOING CRAZY FOR THE ENDER AS HE LOOKS ON WITH MALICIOUS INTENT!

Stew-O: Tig Kelly picks up Rhaegar and throws him back into the ring as Rhaegar starts to try and pick himself up BUT HE’S MET WITH A STIFF KICK INTO THE CHEST AS HE IS FORCED TO HIS KNEES! TIG JUST STARTS WAILING THOSE STIFF KICKS INTO THE CHEST OF RHAEGAR! HE’S TAKING IT RIGHT TO HIM RIGHT NOW! Tig finally stops and takes a step back BEFORE RUNNING BACK WITH THE SHINING WIZARD RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF RHAEGAR! TIG KELLY FLOATS OVER ONTO RHAEGAR AS HE HOOKS THE LEG!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!

Deadprez: RHAEGAR KICKS OUT WITH POWERFUL FURY! Tig Kelly pushes his way back to his feet as he paces his way back to the corner of the ring CALLING FOR RHAEGAR TO STAND AS HE LOOKS FOR THE MAFIA KICK! Rhaegar is pushing on the canvas! He’s trying to get back to a vertical base to continue this fight for the National Elite Championship! Rhaegar stands! He turns WITH TIG SPRINTING TOWARDS HIM! MAFIA KICK!

Stew-O: SPARTAN UPPERCUT! A DEVASTATING RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT STRIKES FLUSH ON THE CHIN OF THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! TIG KELLY HAS TO BE KNOCKED OUT FROM THAT BLOW! YOU COULD HEAR IT FROM THE CHEAP SEATS! RHAEGAR DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE VICTORY! NEW CHAMPION, FOLKS!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Deadprez: NO! TIG KELLY GETS THE SHOULDER UP BEFORE THE THREE-COUNT! Rhaegar starts to get frustrated as he lifts Tig Kelly to scream right in his face BEFORE DUMPING HIM OUT BACK ONTO THE FLOOR! Rhaegar goes through the ropes to go back to the outside to pick Tig Kelly back up! RHAEGAR TOSSES TIG KELLY INTO THE STEEL STEPS AS TIG LANDS ON HIS BACK! WHAT A SICKENING CRASH! STEEL AND FLESH ISN’T SUPPOSED TO MESH LIKE THAT!

Stew-O: Rhaegar isn’t finished as the referee continues his count to three! He might want to be mindful as he cannot win the National Elite Championship by count-out! Rhaegar picks up Tig Kelly TOSSING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE! Rhaegar taunts towards Tig Kelly DRIVING TIG KELLY THROUGH THE BARRICADE WITH THE SPEAR! HOLY JESUS! HE HAS OBLITERATED THAT BARRICADE! THAT COULD BE IT! The referee continues his count!

Referee: FIVE! SIX!

Deadprez: Rhaegar crawls out of the wreckage as he starts to make his way towards the ring, trying to get there before the count ends!

Referee: SEVEN! EIGHT!

Stew-O: Rhaegar crawls on the steel steps, getting to his feet as he enters back into the ring by the count of nine before rolling back out of the ring to cause the restart! Rhaegar limps over to the broken Tig Kelly that still lies within! Rhaegar hoists him back to his feet as he drags him over to the ring to throw him back in!

Deadprez: Rhaegar slides back in as the beaten Tig Kelly starts to try and push his way back to his feet! Tig Kelly is hardly able to do so, with so much damage he has taken in his match, as Rhaegar simply walks over to the corner STALKING HIM FOR THE STRIKE OF ZEUS! Tig Kelly reaches his feet as he turns around STRUCK BY THE SECOND SPEAR FROM RHAEGAR!

Stew-O: NO! OH MY GOD! TIG KELLY WAS ABLE TO LEAPFROG TO AVOID THE SPEAR AS HE ALMOST COLLAPSED BACK DOWN TO THE MAT WHEN HE LANDED! Rhaegar can’t believed he missed as he turns around RIGHT INTO THE MAFIA KICK BY TIG KELLY! RHAEGAR ISN’T HIT! HE CATCHES TIG KELLY AS HE THROWS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS! THE SILENCE OF HYPNOS!

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

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Step Up (I’m On It)” by Maylene and the Sons of Disaster plays in the background as the referee takes the National Elite Championship and returns it back to the battered Tig Kelly.)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… AND STTTIIIILLLLLLLLLLL EAW NAATTTIIIIOOOOONNAAALLLLLL ELLIIITTTTEEEEE CHHAAAMMMMPPPPPIIOOONNNNNN… TIIIGGGGG KEELLLLLLLYYYYY!!!

Stew-O: TIG KELLY HAS DONE IT!! HE RETAINS THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP AGAINST A STRONG CONTENDER SUCH AS RHAEGAR! That spear into the barricade made me think that this match was going to go to Rhaegar!

Deadprez: Yeah, I assumed that Rhaegar had this match won at the moment! If he had hit that last spear, I promise it would’ve been over! However, the ring awareness and sheer ability of Tig Kelly to fight on is what kept him alive long enough to retain the EAW National Elite Championship! Congratulations to Tig Kelly!

(Tig Kelly exits the ring with the National Elite Championship on his shoulders with the crowd fully behind him as Rhaegar sits in the corner with a scowl on his face, pissed about the defeat.)

( Brief advertiser break )

( Return to the Allstate Arena. ‘’Sellouts’’ by Breathe Carolina plays as Cameron Ella Ava makes her way out to the ring in her ring attire with the Interwire Championship around her shoulder )

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome at this time …..THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION ….CAMMMMERRROOONNNNNN ELLLAAAAAAAAAA AVAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

Matt Ryder: Well this is most certainly unexpected! Last week, we saw TLA call out Cameron Ella Ava for an Interwire title shot, Cameron DIDN’T answer the challenge but it appears that we’re going to hear from the Vixen of the Year award winner right now!

Jake Mercer: If TLA wants a shot, he should push her down the stairs, I hear that’s how you get her attention and respect.

( Cameron enters the ring and takes the microphone from the ring announcer )

Cameron Ella Ava: Thank you.

Cameron Ella Ava: So, I hear that TLA called me out and wanted to challenge me for my title last week and seemed to be a bit upset that I didn’t answer his challenge …Look, I’m a fighting champion, I hold this championship with pride like I have held all my other titles with pride. I don’t back down from ANY challenge, I don’t back down from ANYBODY and I will put my title on the line against ALL challengers, no matter who they are and you know something? I prevail. I prevailed when Chuck Scene wanted to put up his career on the line in an Anything Goes Match, I put my title on the line against Jason Cage in a Two out of Three falls match so trust me, TLA …I’m not afraid of some Dynasty reject. I wasn’t there at Showdown, I had important business to tend too so that is why I’m out here tonight, with the blessing of James Shields, because TLA, if you think you haven’t reached your ‘’glass ceiling’’ and you want to prove that you can break out further than facing the likes of Clark Duncan…

Cameron Ella Ava: You said you don’t want to repeat history and sit around doing nothing like you did on Dynasty for months, how long did it take you to actually win a championship or get on an FPV again? How long did it you to actually get noticed in EAW again? I can appreciate the fact that you want to get noticed on Showdown and considering how stacked the roster on Showdown is, it can get really hard to get noticed around here. I appreciate the fact that you want to come for the baddest bitch in EAW but you don’t have to worry; I know you’re not playing games but don’t you worry, you don’t need to come and ‘find me’ because I’m right here so the question is ….what are you gonna do about it?

Cameron Ella Ava: Why wait for Showdown? ME. YOU. INTERWIRE TITLE. RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.

Jake Mercer: WHAT?! CAMERON ELLA AVA IS ISSUING AN OPEN CHALLENGE TO TLA FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP RIGHT NOW!

Matt Ryder: IS TLA EVEN HERE?!

Jake Mercer: Well Donald Trump hasn’t been elected as President yet so I think it’s safe to assume he is…

( ‘’Intro’’ by DMX plays as TLA makes his way down to the ramp as he does the ‘Cero Miedo’ hand gesture )

Matt Ryder: ……WAIT A MINUTE BRO! SOMEBODY JUST HOPPED THE BARRICADE AND BLINDSIDED CAMERON FROM BEHIND! IS THAT ….OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! THAT’S …. THAT’S CHUCK SCENE! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING HERE?! HE WAS BANISHED FROM EAW AFTER HE LOST TO CAMERON ELLA AVA TWO MONTHS AGO ON SHOWDOWN! CHUCK IS STOMPING ON CAMERON WHO IS COVERING HERSELF UP ON THE MAT AS CHUCK GRABS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP AND BEGINS WHIPPING CAMERON WITH THE CHAMPIONSHIP! OH MY GOD! CHUCK IS WHIPPING THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP ACROSS THE BODY OF CAMERON ELLA AVA! HARD, VICIOUS SHOTS WITH THAT GOLD BELT ACROSS HER BODY! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING HERE?!

Jake Mercer: TLA IS STANDING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP, WATCHING ON AS CHUCK SCENE IS DESTROYING CAMERON ELLA AVA HERE! SECURITY IS RUNNING INTO THE RING BUT CHUCK WIPES THEM OUT WITH THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP! CHUCK IS LAYING OUT OUR SECURITY HERE AS HE GOES BACK TO WHIPPING CAMERON! JAMES SHIELDS IS OUT HERE, BRINGING OUT MORE SECURITY WHO TAKE DOWN CHUCK AND DRAG HIM OUT OF THE RING!

James Shield: GET HIM OUT OF HERE! HE DOESN’T WORK HERE ANYMORE!

( Security drags Chuck up the side of the ramp )

Chuck Scene: I’M GONNA (CENSORED) KILL THIS BITCH! SHE’S DEAD! SHE’S DEAD!

( TLA shoves James Shields, wanting a referee down to the ring )

Matt Ryder: Oh c’mon! We can’t have a match now! Cameron is in NO condition to compete here …

( Shields shakes his head and orders EMTs down to the ring to check on Cameron )

James Shield: She can’t compete, you’ll have to wait.

( TLA shakes his head in anger as he grabs James Shields by the throat but security grabs TLA and drags him away from Shields who looks furious )

Jake Mercer: TLA is furious! TLA wants his shot and he doesn’t care about the condition that Cameron is in …

( Cameron Ella Ava is carried up the ramp )

( AD: Chris Elite comes to Showdown – NEXT WEEK! )

(The camera pans back into the Allstate Arena — where it scans over thousands, and thousands of fans on their feet; cheering and holding their signs up high, before refocusing on the ring announcer in the middle of the ring.)

Ring Announcer: This following match is set for ONE FAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLL!!!!… AND IT IS FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!

(“That’s Amore” by Mattias IA Eklundh plays, as The Pizza Boy enters the Allstate Arena wearing the classic black and white striped referee shirt.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing your special guest referee for this match!!!… THEEEEEEEEEE PIZZZZZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYY!!!!

Stew: The Pizza Boy has a LOT of pressure going into the match — I might even say, almost equal to that of the competitor’s! He’s playing referee in a match where his best friend, The Heart Break Boy… is competing to reclaim the World Heavyweight Championship. The Pizza Boy HAS to call this down the middle, it all depends on whether or not he’s honorable enough to do it! He has a LOT of decisions to make ahead of him, and we’re all hoping they’re rational ones.

(The Pizza Boy enters the ring through the middle rope, as he stands next to the ring announcer — jumping up and down, pacing back and forth, appearing to be very nervous while he looks up to the stage.)

(“Fear” by Lecrae plays, and the entire arena jumps to their feet, loudly cheering The Heart Break Boy as he enters through the backstage curtain… HBB makes his way mid-way down the ramp, and gets to his knees, and prays — before he throws his arms into the air and pyrotechnics would explode in a straight line in a loop behind him.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Ferguson, Missouri! Weighing in at 220 POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUNNNNNNNDDSSSSS!!!!!…. “THE PRODIGAL SON”, “THE GOLDEN BOY”, THE HEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARTTTTTTTT BREEEEEEEEAKKKKKKKKKKKK BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYYY!!!!

Stew: WOW! These fans have come to life for The Heart Break Boy, as he makes his way down to the ring! He’s looking very confident, but there has to be a ton of things going through his mind right now… I mean think about it, he hasn’t been a World Champion for how long now? Five years? Maybe even six? It’s hard to think of the last time he reigned supreme over this company. He’s come back to EAW with a whole new personality, he’s given himself to the Lord, and he’s not afraid to admit it. I respect him for that, but can God guide him to a victory? Will The Heart Break Boy end his drought and become our NEW World Heavyweight Champion? I wouldn’t put it past him if he pulls off the victory here tonight!

(“Dragonborn” by Jeremy Soule plays loudly throughout the arena as the fans explode in cheers once again… as Brian Daniels comes walking out onto the stage, with the World Heavyweight Championship strapped around his waist, wearing red and black themed attire — he comes marching down the ring, and doesn’t take an eye of off The Heart Break Boy.)

Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from New York City, New York! Weighing in at 215 POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUNDSSSSS!!!!… HE IS THE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONNNNN OF THE WOOOOOOOOOOORLDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!… “THE DRAGONBORN”…. BRIANNNNNNNNN DANNNNNNNNNNNNIEEEEEEEEEELSSSSSSSSSS!!!

Stew: What’s left to say about Brian Daniels? He’s nearly done it all, while reigning as your World Heavyweight Champion. He’s gotten through Glass Walls, High Voltage, Elimination Chamber… he even handpicked The Heart Break Boy as his King of Elite opponent, even when he admitted that if there was one person in this entire company that has the capability to dethroned him — it’s The Heart Break Boy. I know as much as anyone else does here, Daniels doesn’t intend to lay over for him, but I can tell this is going to be a battle of respect. We’re about to witness a match for the ages with this one.

(The camera fixates itself on The Heart Break Boy, and Brian Daniels… as they both stare each other down, with The Pizza Boy looking on from the middle.)

The Crowd: H-B-B! BRIAN DANIELS! H-B-B! BRIAN DANIELS! H-B-B! BRIAN DANIELS!

Stew: THIS CROWD IS SPLIT DOWN THE MIDDLE! I haven’t seen two equally loved elitist share the same ring, and get this type of reception in a LONG TIME! The Pizza Boy is calling for the bell, HERE WE GO!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Deadprez: There are chills going down my spine, as the bell rings and this World Heavyweight Championship bout is officially underway! We have “The Golden Boy” the Heart Break Boy… up against “The Dragonborn” Brian Daniels! And here we go, both competitors shuffle their feet as they circle around the ring, with their eyes locked on one another… and Brian Daniels extends his right hand out for a test of strength between the two, and HBB wastes no time in intertwining and gripping Brian Daniels’ hand! BUT HBB WITH HIS FREE HAND, BEGINS TO RAPIDLY WHIP HIS HAND AGAINST BRIAN DANIELS’ CHEST FOR THOSE CHEST REDDENING KNIFE EDGED CHOPS! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN! ELEVEN! TWELVE! But The Pizza Boy is trying to pry Heart Break Boy off of Brian Daniels to get him out of the corner! He’s calling it down the middle, ALREADY!

Stew: BUT HBB! HE’S STILL GOING… HE HAS BRIAN DANIELS CORNERED AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE! BUT BRIAN DANIELS, HE SHIFTS OUT OF THE CORNER AND IMMEDIATELY TOSSES HBB IN IT! AND OH BOY, HERE WE GO! BRIAN DANIELS UNLEASHES ON HBB WITH THOSE RAPID KICKS TO THE CHEST! THE FANS COUNT ALONG, ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! And Pizza Boy forced to get involved once again, trying to get Daniels out of the corner… BUT DANIELS REFUSES! CONTINUING THOSE DEADLY AMOUNT OF KICKS! EIGHT! NINE! TEN! ELEVEN! TWELVE! THIRTEEN! Brian Daniels giving HBB a little bit of his medicine, AND HBB! He manages to catch one of the oncoming kicks from Daniels… HBB STARTS BEATING IN DANIELS’ THIGH WITH HIS ELBOW!

Deadprez: HOWEVER, DANIELS RETALIATES WITH A HEADBUTT IN RETURN! WITH PLENTY OF THEM! That gives Brian Daniels enough time to pull his leg out of HBB’s grasp, and SHOVES HBB away from him using his opposite boot! AND DANIELS! DANIELS WASTING NO TIME, IN CLIMBING BACKWARDS UP TO THE TOP ROPE… HBB GOES RUSHING IN! AND DANIELS LEAPS FOR HIS LIFE— FRONT MISSILE DROPKICK! IT LOOKS LIKE IT CONNECTS, WAIT! WHAT? HBB… HBB MANAGES TO SIDESTEP AND GRAB A HOLD OF DANIELS’ LEG IN THE PROCESS! Daniels just went crashing down spine first onto the canvas!

Stew: And HBB! HBB with his grip still on Daniels’ leg that he targeted previously with his elbows… TURNS Brian Daniels onto his stomach! AND HBB HAS A FIRM GRIP ON DANIELS’ ANKLE! DANIELS IS LOCKED IN THE ANKLE-LOCK! HBB HAS IT LOCKED IN! THIS ISN’T THE FIRST TIME DANIELS HAS BEEN CAUGHT IN THIS SITUATION, A BIT OF A THROWBACK TO ELITE! AND DANIELS IS SQUIRMING AND STRUGGLING TO ESCAPE, AND CRAWL TO THE ROPES! BUT THE FURTHER HE GETS, THE MORE HBB TWISTS AND TURNS THAT ANKLE! I think HBB is more than ready to break some bones in order to capture the World Heavyweight Championship! Brian… he’s still fighting! But HBB IS NOT, IS NOT LETTING GO!

Deadprez: The Pizza Boy continuously checks on Brian Daniels, ensuring that Brian Daniels doesn’t want to quit and watching his hands in case this ends in a submission victory right here! AND DANIELS MANAGES TO ROLL ON HIS BACK! HBB STILL WITH A TIGHT GRIP ON THE ANKLE, BUT PROCEEDS TO GRAB BOTH OF HIS LEGS AND HOOKS THEM UNDERNEATH HIS ARMS! AND FALLS BACKWARDS SLINGING BRIAN DANIELS FACE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! WHAT???… DANIELS SOMEHOW MANAGES TO DIRECT HIMSELF TO LAND PERFECTLY ON THE SECOND ROPE! HBB easily notices this as soon as he gets back to his feet— AND RUSHES DANIELS!

Stew: DANIELS FLIPS BACKWARDS OUT OF THE CORNER, AS HBB RUSHES AT HIM! And Daniels goes running off the ropes, AND HBB DOES THE SAME! They both come rebounding back at one another, FULL FORCE! AND OH MY GOD! THEY BOTH TAKE EACH OTHER OUT WITH EACH OF THEM DELIVERING ONTO ONE ANOTHER; FLYING FOREARM SMASHES! The Heart Break Boy and Brian Daniels are now both LAID OUT in the middle of the ring, and The Pizza Boy proceeds to check on the both of them… before starting a ten count!

The Pizza Boy: ONE!!!…

Deadprez: AND IT DOESN’T MAKE IT PAST THE ONE COUNT, AS BOTH MEN KIP UP AT THE VERY SAME TIME! SHEESH! Brian Daniels locks his eyes on the Heart Break Boy’s— AND HBB CHARGES! THE GOLDPRINT! THE GOLDPRINT! HBB WITH THE SUPERKICK TO THE JAW— NO! NO! DANIELS DUCKS UNDERNEATH! AND DANIELS SWINGS HIS LEG AROUND, THE CAUSTIC ECHO! THE CAUSTIC ECHO! THE SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE TEMPLE CONNECT— NO! NO! HBB! HBB GRABS A HOLD OF THE INCOMING BOOT, AND KICKS DANIELS OUT FROM UNDER HIS ONLY FOOT KEEPING HIM BALANCED! AND HBB! HE’S SETTING UP THE FIGURE-FOUR LEGLOCK! CAN HE GET IT… HE’S ALMOST THERE! DANIELS STRUGGLING! AND HE GOT IT! FIGURE-FOUR LOCKED IN! ANOTHER SUBMISSION HOLD, AND DANIELS IS IN FOR IT AGAIN!

Stew: HBB is putting his ALL into this submission move, The Pizza Boy observing Daniels closely! He’s once again watching out for the possibility of a submission victory! BUT DANIELS ISN’T WASTING HIS TIME! HE’S FIGHTING OUT OF THIS ONE! HE’S SHIFTING AND TURNING HIS BODY WEIGHT… AND SPINS OVER! HE’S REVERSED THE FIGURE-FOUR NEARLY AS SOON AS IT’S APPLIED! AND THIS TIME, THE PRESSURE IS ON HBB! PIZZA BOY REVERTING HIS ATTENTION TO HIM… AND HBB HOLLERS OUT IN PAIN! AND HE’S SLOWLY CRAWLING TO THE ROPES, WHICH AREN’T THAT FAR AWAY THIS TIME AROUND! HE’S ABOUT THERE… AND HE HAS IT! HIS RIGHT HAND IS ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!

Deadprez: Brian Daniels respects the rope break and lets go of the submission hold! HBB slowly begins to pull himself up using the ropes, but Daniels who’s already up comes up behind HBB… AND WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND HIS WAIST! THERE’S A BEAUTIFUL GERMAN SUPLEX, HBB’S UPPER BACK AND NECK MAKES A SICKENING THUD AS IT COLLIDES WITH THE MAT, AND DANIELS BRIDGES IT FOR THE FIRST PIN ATTEMPT OF THIS MATCH! AND PIZZA BOY DROPS TO THE CANVAS FOR THE PIN!

The Pizza Boy: ONEEEEE!!!… TWW—

Stew: THERE’S A NEAR TWO COUNT, AS HBB MANAGES TO KICK OUT! It’s going to take a lot more to keep The Prodigal Son down for a three count, and I’m sure Daniels knows it! And so far, The Pizza Boy has called this one right down the middle! As Daniels pushes himself back to a vertical base, HE RUNS AT HBB WHO’S ON HIS HANDS AND KNEES— PUNT KICKING HIM IN THE STOMACH! HBB goes FLIPPING onto his spine! AND DANIELS DROPS A KNEE ON HIS HEAD! Daniels now positioning himself behind HBB’s body… lifting him up by his neck! AND DANIELS BOOSTS HBB’S BODY UPWARDS! AND DROPS HIM NECK FIRST ON THE RING MAT FOR A REVERSE IMPLANT DDT AND DANIELS GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER! PIZZA BOY RESPONDS TO THE PIN ATTEMPT IMMEDIATELY!

The Pizza Boy: ONEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOO!!!!…

Deadprez: AND ONCE AGAIN, HBB IS ABLE TO KICK OUT OF IT! Daniels takes one glance at The Pizza Boy once finding himself back on both feet, The Pizza Boy telling him it was a two count, and Daniels easily shrugging it off – pulling HBB back up to his feet! AND HBB WITH A KICK TO THE GUT SEEMINGLY OUT OF NOWHERE! Daniels is bent, AND HBB JUMPS! HE DRIVES HIS BOOT IN THE BACK OF DANIELS SKULL, FORCING DANIELS TO GO NOSE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS! HBB CONNECTS WITH THE CURSE OF LEGION CURBSTOMP! And this is what I expected from the Heart Break Boy from the BEGINNING of this match! He entertains, and by doing so… he can find himself fighting back out of nowhere when it’s apparent that he’s on the receiving end of the beating!

Stew: HBB runs his right hand through his hair, glaring down at Brian Daniels… before shifting his body behind that of Daniels’, and lifts him up by his waist! AND PULLS BRIAN DANIELS DEADWEIGHT OFF THE MAT— AND SLAMS HIS UPPER BACK INTO THE CANVAS! WITH AN AMAZINGLY EXECUTED GERMAN SUPLEX! AND HBB KEEPS A HOLD OF BRIAN DANIELS’ WAIST, SPINS OVER, AND PULLS HIM BACK UP… AND SENDS NECK BACK CRASHING INTO THE CANVAS AGAIN! I THINK HE’S GOING FOR THE THREE AMIGOS! HBB IS WASTING NO TIME, I REPEAT… NO TIME! HE GETS DANIELS BACK TO HIS FEET! AND HE GOES FOR THE THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX TO COMPLETE THE TRIFECTA! AND HE GOT IT! HE GOT IT! DANIELS GOES CRASHING INTO THE MAT FOR A THIRD TIME, AND HBB IS LIVID! HE’S ON HIS FEET TAUNTING TO THE CROWD!

Deadprez: AND HBB… HE’S SETTING HIS SIGHTS FOR THE CORNER! DANIELS IS LAID OUT! IT’S THE PERFECT TIME! HE RUSHES INTO THE CORNER, EXITS ONTO THE APRON, AND CLIMBS THE ROPES! DANIELS IS MOVING A BIT, BUT HBB IS PICKING UP THE PACE! HE’S ON THE TOP ROPE, AND HE STANDS STRAIGHT UP! The Pizza Boy is watching on, and he even looks a bit excited himself! I think he’s absolutely thrilled just to be apart of this! AND HBB GIVES DANIELS A CROTCH CHOP WHILE UP THERE— AND HBB DIVES! HE DIVES OFF THE TOP ROPE! THERE IT IS EVERYBODY!!! THE HEART BREAK ELBOW!!! AND IT CONNECTS, AS HBB DRIVES HIS ELBOW THROUGH DANIELS’ HEART! AND HBB GRABS AND HOOKS THE LEG, LOOKING FOR THE VICTORY! THE PIZZA BOY DROPS AND COUNTS!

The Pizza Boy: ONEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!… THHH—

Stew: DANIELS KICKS OUT! DANIELS KICKS OUT! HE KICKS OUT JUST AS THE PIZZA BOY NEARLY SLAPS THE MAT FOR A THREE COUNT! HBB gets to his knees, and looks absolutely astonished when looking down at Brian Daniels’ who’s holding his chest… HBB shakes his head, and jumps to his feet! He looks toward The Pizza Boy and smiles! What’s he have planned— oh! Now I know! HBB backs himself to a corner, staring down at Brian Daniels who’s now just turning over onto his belly… AND HBB IS TUNING UP THE BAND! HE’S STOMPING THAT RIGHT FOOT OF HIS REPEATEDLY ON THE MAT! HE’S CALLING FOR THE GOLDPRINT! THIS COULD BE IT IF HE CONNECTS WITH IT! ONE STOMP AFTER ANOTHER, HE’S MEASURING DANIELS UP…

Deadprez: DANIELS IS TO A KNEE! HE’S ON A KNEE! STRUGGLING TO GET TO HIS FEET! HBB IS WAITING, BUT YOU CAN THE HOW DESPERATELY HE WANTS THIS… HBB IS CALLING FOR IT! DANIELS! DANIELS IS UP! AND HE’S TURNING AROUND— HBB CHARGES! HE CHARGES DOWN AT DANIELS! THERE IT IS! THE GOLDPRINT! THE GOLDPRINT CONNECTS! NO! NO! NO! DANIELS JUST ROUNDHOUSE KICKED HBB’S BOOT AWAY, BEFORE IT COULD MAKE IMPACT WITH HIS JAW! WHAT AGILITY FROM DANIELS! AND DANIELS SWINGS HIS FOOT AT HBB’S HEAD! HE’S GOING FOR THAT DEADLY CAUSTIC ECHO SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK! BUT HBB! HBB DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT! NEITHER MEN ABLE TO CONNECT WITH THEIR FINISHERS— BUT HBB! HBB WITH THE GOLDPRINT SUPERKICK OUT OF NOWHERE!!!

Stew: WHAT?! HBB CONNECTS WITH IT! BUT HE CONNECTS WITH IT ON THE SPECIAL GUEST REFEREE… THE PIZZA BOY ON ACCIDENT, AS BRIAN DANIELS SPUN OUT OF THE WAY AND THE PIZZA BOY WAS MET WITH THE CROSSFIRE! The Pizza Boy is OUT COLD! And HBB looks extremely upset with himself, and walks toward The Pizza Boy to check up on him— BUT BRIAN DANIELS! BRIAN DANIELS SPRINTS OFF THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A VALAR MORGHULIS ONTO THE HEART BREAK BOY! BRIAN DANIELS DROPS DOWN ONTO HBB FOR THE COVER, BUT DOESN’T REALIZE THE PIZZA BOY IS OUT! AND THE FANS ARE SHOUTING THE NUMBERS OF THE PIN AS IF THEY’RE CALLING THE MATCH THEMSELVES!

Crowd: ONEEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…..

Deadprez: HBB SLUGGISHLY TURNS THE SHOULDER UP, BUT DANIELS LOOKS WILDLY AROUND NOT SEEING THE PIZZA BOY ANYWHERE! But now he does, Daniels jumps back to his feet and rushes to The Pizza Boy! He’s shaking him and lightly slapping him on the cheek to try and awaken him, and I think Daniels knocked a little sense into him! The Pizza Boy is stirring, his eyes are opened and Daniels helps him to a seated position! BUT DANIELS TAKES ONE GOOD LOOK BACK AT THE HEART BREAK BOY, WHO’S STILL DOWN AFTER THAT VICIOUS KNEE CLASHED WITH HBB’S HEAD! DANIELS RUNS TO THE NEARBY CORNER NEAR THE HEART BREAK BOY… AND HE BEGINS TO CLIMB!

Stew: DANIELS IS HURRYING HIMSELF UP TO THE TOP ROPE, AND THE HEART BREAK BOY ISN’T AWARE! DANIELS IS UP THERE, MUCH LIKE HBB WAS BEFORE! AND DANIELS TAKES ONE GOOD LOOK AT HBB— AND HE LEAPS! HE LEAPS HIGH INTO THE AIR, AND COMES CRASHING DOWN ON THE HEART BREAK BOY’S SKULL WITH A DIVING HEADBUTT FROM THE TOP ROPE! GOOD LORD! AND DANIELS GOES FOR THE COVER… AND THE PIZZA BOY IS STILL A BIT DIZZY! AND PIZZA BOY FINALLY… FINALLY! NOTICES THE PIN ATTEMPT, AS DANIELS IS SHOUTING OVER AT HIM! AND HE CRAWLS OVER AND STARTS THE COUNT!

The Pizza Boy: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!…. THRRRR——

Deadprez: THE HEART BREAK BOY GETS A SHOULDER UP! HE GETS A SHOULDER UP, AND THIS MATCH CONTINUES! The Heart Break Boy continues to fight on, but for how much longer? Brian Daniels presses his hand against his forehead, wiping the sweat off of him… and grabs The Heart Break Boy by his head and lifts him to a vertical stance! Brian Daniels then goes off on HBB with multiple forearm shots to the head, BEFORE VIOLENTLY WHIPPING HBB INTO THE CORNER! AND HBB GOES STOMACH FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE, FLIPPING OVER IT WITH THAT CRAZY IMPACT! AND COMES LANDING BACK DOWN ON HIS FEET! BUT BRIAN DANIELS SPRINTS BEHIND HIM— RUNNING DROPKICK TO HBB’S SPINE! HBB IS SENT STOMACH FIRST ONE MORE TIME INTO THE CORNER! HBB turns around in the corner, holding his stomach — trying to rest, and heal up! But I don’t think Daniels is going to ALLOW THAT!!!!…

Stew: DANIELS COMES CHARGING BACK AT HBB IN THE CORNER, AFTER TAKING THE TIME TO MAKE ENOUGH ROOM TO SPRINT! AND THERE’S ANOTHER DROPKICK! A DROPKICK TO THE CHEST THIS TIME! AND DANIELS IMMEDIATELY GETS BACK UP, MAKES ENOUGH ROOM AGAIN! AND ANOTHER DROPKICK! DANIELS BACK UP! AND HE’S REPEATING THE SAME ROTATION— HE BACKS HIMSELF INTO THE CORNER! AND THERE’S ANOTHER DROPKICK! THE LOUD SOUND COMING OFF THE BOOTS COLLIDING WITH HBB’S CHEST… IT’S MAKING ME WONDER HOW THAT’S NOT ENOUGH PAIN TO PUT HIM DOWN? DANIELS BACK INTO THE CORNER, AND RUNS AT HBB CONNECTING WITH HIS SIXTH DROPKICK TO HBB’S CHEST! DANIELS LOOKS CRAZED, HE LOOKS ENRAGED! LIKE THE DRAGON HAS BEEN UNLEASHED!

Deadprez: AND DANIELS ISN’T THROUGH! HE’S NOT FINISHED! HE’S GOING FOR THE SEVENTH DROPKICK! AND ANOTHER DROPKICK SMASHES HBB IN THE CHEST! AND DANIELS JUMPS BACK UP, WHERE DID THIS SUDDEN BURST OF ENERGY COME FROM? HE RUNS BACK TO THE CORNER… AND SPRINTS BACK DOWN AT HBB! THERE’S THE EIGHTH DROPKICK! THAT ONE TAKES HBB TO A SEATED POSITION IN THE CORNER! The Pizza Boy is trying to intervene here, he’s trying to get his friend and mentor out of the corner, but there’s no stopping Brian Daniels right now! The Pizza Boy attempts to address Brian Daniels who looks at him with crazy eyes! AND DANIELS ISN’T THROUGH, HE BLATANTLY IGNORES THE PIZZA BOY, RUSHING BACK TO THE CORNER! AND THEN REBOUNDS BACK TO THE HEART BREAK BOY, AND CONNECTS WITH THE NINTH DROPKICK, BUT THIS TIME TO THE SKULL! HOW MANY OF THESE DROPKICKS DOES HE HAVE IN HIM?

Stew: HBB LOOKS DAZED! HE LOOKS ALMOST OUT OF IT! AND DANIELS ALREADY IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER, COMES RUNNING BACK— COMING BACK AROUND TO CONNECT WITH THE TENTH DROPKICK TO HBB’S SKULL! AND HBB DROPS TO THE MAT, APPEARING TO BE KNOCKED OUT COLD! THIS IS THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION WE’VE KNOWN TO COME! WE’VE SEEN HOW DANGEROUS HE CAN BE! Daniels, now on his knees… with his hair covering the face of our champion; looks around at the crowd who are on their feet and CHEERING! The Pizza Boy takes this time of momentary peace, to check on The Heart Break Boy to see if he’s capable of going on!— BUT DANIELS WON’T LET HIM!

Deadprez: DANIELS, NOW BACK ON HIS FEET! WALKS OVER TO HBB, LIFTING HIS LITERAL DEADWEIGHT UP! AND HE PLACES HIM IN THE CORNER AGAIN! HBB CAN HARDLY STAND… Daniels stretches both of HBB’s arms out, and places them behind the ropes to keep his body up for leverage! And Daniels this time around, he’s walking back into the opposite corner… are we about to see ANOTHER dropkick? I surely hope not— AND DANIELS IS NODDING HIS HEAD WILDLY, HIS HAIR GOING ALL OVER THE PLACE! HE ONCE AGAIN BURST OUT OF THE CORNER! I THINK— YES! THE STARKILLER! THE STARKILLER! RUNNING BIG BOOT— WHAT?! WHAT?! THE GOLDPRINT! THE GOLDPRINT! HBB SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY… MUSTERED UP THE ENERGY TO BURST OUT OF HIS CORNER AND SUPERKICKS BRIAN DANIELS RIGHT IN THE JAW! HOW DID HE FIND IT WITHIN HIM TO PULL THAT OFF?

Stew: BUT PREZ… BOTH MEN COLLAPSE! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN! AND THE PIZZA BOY HAS NO IDEA WHAT TO DO! Firstly, he checks on his partner, and then Daniels right after! BUT HBB! HBB IS STIRRING… HBB! HE’S CRAWLING TO DANIELS WHO’S LAID OUT ON HIS BACK! HE’S ABOUT THERE— HBB DRAPES THE ARM OVER DANIELS FOR THE COVER! AFTER ALL THE ENERGY DANIELS SPENT INTO THOSE DROPKICKS, I PERSONALLY DOUBT HE’S KICKING OUT! NO DAMN WAY! WE HAVE A NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION ON THE HORIZON AS THE PIZZA BOY COUNTS!

The Pizza Boy: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!….. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Deadprez: DANIELS… DANIELS GETS THE SHOULDER UP! WHAT? HOW? HOW DID HE MANAGE THAT? THE PIZZA BOY LOOKS AMAZED, HE LOOKS STARTLED HIMSELF! AND HE TELLS THE BELL KEEPER THAT IT WAS A TWO COUNT! VERY WELL CLOSE THREE AT THAT! HBB LOOKS SLIGHTLY UP AT THE PIZZA BOY.. DANIELS HAS A HEART OF A CHAMPION! HE’S FIGHTING THROUGH THICK AND THIN TO RETAIN HIS CHAMPIONSHIP, AND HBB’S FACE TELLS A THOUSANDS STORIES! HIS HEAD NOW PRESSED AGAINST DANIELS’ CHEST, WITH THE EXPRESSION OF “WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO WIN THIS?” — HBB crawls toward the bottom rope, and uses the ropes one by one to lift himself back up to both feet! Daniels, now rolling over onto his side… HBB stares down at him, while leaning against the ring ropes, pushing himself off toward Brian Daniels! And Daniels now on his hands and knees; HBB pulls him up by his neck! AND BRIAN FIRES OFF WITH A FIST! BRIAN WITH ANOTHER FIST! BUT HBB RETALIATES WITH A KNIFE EDGED CHOP! AND DANIELS WITH A SNAP KICK TO HBB’S LEFT LEG!

Stew: THERE’S A FEW MORE KICKS FROM BRIAN! BUT HBB WITH A KNEE TO THE ABDOMEN! AND HBB SWINGS HIS KNEE BACK AROUND TO CONNECT WITH DANIELS’ ABDOMEN! Daniels is sent staggering backwards— AND OH NO! HBB WINDS UP THE LEG, AND THERE IT IS! ANOTHER GOLDPRINT SUPERKICK! WAIT, NO! DANIELS DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE LEG! IT’S LOOKING A LOT LIKE EARLIER, AND DANIELS! DANIELS CATCHES HBB OFF GUARD WITH THE CAUSTIC ECHO! THIS TIME IT CONNECTS! IT DOES CONNECT! AND DANIELS GOT IT! AND DANIELS DROPS DOWN OVER THE HEART BREAK BOY FOR THE PIN! THIS IS IT! DANIELS STAYS THE CHAMPION— IF PIZZA BOY HAS IT WITHIN HIM TO COUNT TO THREE!

The Pizza Boy: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Deadprez: WHA— HBB! THE HEART BREAK BOY THROWS THE SHOULDER UP JUST BEFORE THE PIZZA BOY COULD CALL FOR THE THREE COUNT! I HONESTLY THOUGHT DANIELS HAD RETAINED HIS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP RIGHT THERE! Brian Daniels and The Heart Break Boy have been going at it, back and forth with everything they have within them. How much will it take to finally finish this match? Daniels pushes himself off the mat, back to his feet… leaning in the corner, watching The Heart Break Boy stir in the middle of the ring— Daniels pushes himself out of the corner, and makes his way over to the Heart Break Boy! AND THE HEART BREAK BOY APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN PLAYING POSSUM THIS ENTIRE TIME! HE TRIPS DANIELS UP, AND GRABS A HOLD OF HIS ARM! THE HEART BREAK BOY IS TRYING TO LOCK IN THE CROSSFACE!

Stew: HBB IS TRYING TO ENTRAP THE ARM BETWEEN HIS LEGS, BUT DANIELS IS REFUSING! DANIELS IS USING EVERY OUNCE OF STRENGTH HE HAS LEFT IN HIM TO FIGHT IT OFF, BUT FOR HOW LONG? HBB STILL ATTEMPTING, TRYING TO GET THE CROSSFACE LOCKED IN! BUT DANIELS IS REFUSING! AND HBB JUST GIVES UP! HE GIVES UP THE HOLD! HBB seeming to be upset with himself there, as he gets back to his feet— Daniels on all fours, trying to get himself together! BUT THERE’S ANOTHER CURSE OF LEGION, THE SECOND CURBSTOMP IN THIS MATCH! HBB OUT OF DESPERATION HAD TO DO SOMETHING TO GET DANIELS BACK DOWN! DANIELS APPEARS AS IF HIS HEAD JUST COLLIDED WITH A CEMENT WALL! HE LOOKS COMPLETELY OUT! BUT… HBB? WHY ISN’T HE GOING FOR A PIN?

Deadprez: I don’t even know, wait— HBB! HBB HAS HIS EYES ONCE AGAIN LOCKED ON THE TOP ROPE! HE’S ALREADY SUCCESSFULLY HIT THE HEART BREAK ELBOW ONCE IN THIS MATCH! HE’S GOING TO GO FOR IT AGAIN! HE DRAGS DANIELS BY HIS ARM CLOSER TO THE CORNER, TURNING HIM ON HIS SPINE! And HBB SLOWLY climbs up the ropes! He’s taking his time, he’s drained himself of so much energy in this match I’m astounded that he’s even able to stand! And HBB has made it to the second— NOW THE TOP! HE’S KNELT DOWN ON THE TOP ROPE, THE PIZZA BOY LOOKING ON IN AWE! NOT EVEN BOTHERING TO TELL HIM TO GET DOWN! HBB STANDS UP, AND POINTS UP TO THE CEILING WITH HIS RIGHT POINTER FINGER— MOUTHING “THANK YOU, GOD, AMEN.”— AND THE HEART BREAK LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE! THE HEART! BREAK! ELBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!

Stew: WAIT A SECOND, DANIELS CAUGHT HIM! DANIELS… DANIELS PUSHED HIMSELF UP BACK ONTO HIS FEET, AND CAUGHT HBB BY HIS ARM IN MID-AIR! AND HBB FALLS STOMACH FLAT ON THE MAT, AND DANIELS IS LOOKING FOR THE FOURTH SEAL! HE’S GOT THE ARM TRAPPED! AND HE’S GOT IT! IT’S LOCKED IN! THE FOURTH SEAL IS LOCKED IN! AND DANIELS PULLS BACK ON HBB’S HEAD PUTTING A WHOLE TON OF PRESSURE ONTO HIS NECK! AND THE PIZZA BOY SLIDES DOWN TO WATCH THE HEART BREAK BOY! THE HEART BREAK BOY IS STRUGGLING, TRYING TO CRAWL TO THE ROPES! GETTING A LITTLE BIT CLOSER, BUT EVERY TIME HE CRAWLS! DANIELS WRENCHES BACK ON THE HEAD EVEN MORE! HE’S GOT A TIGHT HOLD ON THAT FOURTH SEAL! AND THE PIZZA BOY IS LOOKING HEART BREAK BOY IN HIS EYES, SORT OF PANICKING IN A WAY! THE PIZZA BOY WATCHING HIS FRIEND, HIS PARTNER, HIS MENTOR STRUGGLE IN AGONIZING PAIN! AND THERE’S ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HE CAN DO ABOUT IT, BUT WATCH AND CALL THIS MATCH FAIRLY! THE HEART BREAK BOY CRAWLS A BIT FURTHER… HE’S TRYING TO GET CLOSER! HE’S DESPERATELY REACHING HIS ARM OUT TO THE ROPES, HE’S ALMOST THERE! KEEP GOING HBB! THE WORLD TITLE IS ON THE LINE! THIS IS YOUR CHANCE… HE NEARS THE ROPES! SO CLOSE… BUT HE CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE! THE HEART BREAK BOY TAPS OUT! HE TAPS OUT! BRIAN DANIELS IS STILL OUR WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! AND THE PIZZA BOY HAS NO OTHER CHOICE, BUT TO CALL FOR THE BELL!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner by submission… AND STILL EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONNNNNNNN!!!!… BRIAAAAAAAAANNNN DANIELSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

(“Dragonborn” by Jeremy Soule plays, as The Pizza Boy is handed the World Heavyweight Championship, he looks down at it… and then looks at The Heart Break Boy who’s on the mat, still recovering — and then hands it to Brian Daniels, who’s now on his knees, Daniels nods at The Pizza Boy before taking the championship, and The Pizza Boy goes off to check on The Heart Break Boy… Daniels immediately pops up and runs to the corner, climbing the rope, and raises the World Heavyweight Championship in celebration.)

Deadprez: DANIELS DID IT! DANIELS RETAINS THE CHAMPIONSHIP! WHAT A MATCH, WHAT A HUGE VICTORY FOR BRIAN DANIELS! HE’S PROVEN TIME AFTER TIME, WHY HE’S YOUR WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! AND HE’S DONE IT AGAIN TONIGHT!

Stew: WHAT A MATCH BETWEEN THESE TWO! BACK AND FORTH, LIKE NO OTHER! This one was really one for the ages! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, I couldn’t decide who was going to come out as the winner! Congratulations to Brian Daniels, but The Heart Break Boy MADE him work for that victory!

Deadprez: We cannot take anything away from The Heart Break Boy, he put on ONE HELL OF A SHOW! There’s a reason why he calls himself THE MAIN EVENT! THE SHOW STEALER! He stole the show, but sadly did not come out on top!

Stew: Hey, let’s not forget The Pizza Boy… he also stuck to his word, he called this match down the middle. I can admit there was some doubt in me, some doubt that he’d be able to do so. But hey, he proved me wrong…

(The camera follows The Pizza Boy, who’s now assisting The Heart Break Boy back onto his feet… and The Heart Break Boy slowly walks over to Brian Daniels, who’s getting through with celebrating his victory on the second rope. Brian Daniels and The Heart Break Boy stare each other down, and HBB shakes his head… looking all around the arena, with a look of disappointment on his face — and Brian Daniels extends the hand to The Heart Break Boy as “Dragonborn” slowly dies out.)

Deadprez: Look at this, our World Champion showing a huge sign of respect toward our veteran and legend in The Heart Break Boy!

Stew: Yeah, but will HBB accept it? I’m curious…

(The Heart Break Boy looks down at the hand… and respectfully grips Daniels’ hand and shakes it, pulling him in for a hug afterward, shortly after leaving both HBB and Pizza Boy leave Brian Daniels to celebrate more in the ring as “Dragonborn” by Jeremy Soule continues to play.)

Deadprez: That’s real sportsmanship right there, honestly. I didn’t expect anything less from two beloved individuals, who wrestled their best tonight. But ladies and gentlemen, there’s so much more to come! We still have to crown our NEW King of Elite, Lannister’s time as king might be ending… but he’s also going to test Jamie O’Hara, and his will to be EAW Champion later tonight!

Stew: There’s so much more to come, so stay tuned as King Of Elite rolls on after the intermission!

( 15 MINUTE INTERMISSION )

( A video package plays of the journey of Lucian Black, Aren Mstislav and Eclipse Diemos to the King Of Elite Finals match featuring the song “Kings Never Die” by Eminem. It highlights their tournament victories, their promos and vows to become King Of Elite, and we see Diemos’ victory from the Pre-Show earlier tonight to make his way to the finals. The video hypes the training undertaken by Lucian Black, the endorsement King Lannister has given to Aren Mstislav, and the ominous messages left to the EAW Universe by Eclipse Diemos. Video package then comes to an end… )

( END OF INTERMISSION )

( Camera returns to the stage following the intermission, and the instrumental to “Kings Never Die” by Eminem is playing on the overhead speakers as the camera fixates on the luxurious throne sitting on the side of the stage. We also get a shot of the King Of Elite crown, sitting in a crystal glass display at the timekeeper area. Finally, the Ring Announcer climbs the ring steps and enters the ring and the music comes to a halt. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

RA: The following contest … is THE TRIPLE THREAT FINALS MATCH OF THE KING OF ELITE TOURNAMEEEENTTTTT!!!

….

( “Locked And Loaded” by Godsmack hits, and Lucian Black emerges from a set of double doors in the depths of the crowd as the fans nearby embrace him. Lucian Black makes his way down the arena steps with a look of focus and determination on his face. )

RA: Introducing first… from San Francisco, California… weighing in at 265 POOOUNNNNDSSSSS… LLLLLLUUUUCCIAAAAAAAAANNNN BLAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCKKKKKK!!

Stew: After battling through a star-studded bracket filled with EAW Hall Of Famers, former World Champions and icons in this business, Lucian Black has carved his place in this match from stone! He’s been given no second chances, he hasn’t had it easy, he’s fought just as hard to get to the finals of this match as he has for just about everything else in his career! Years and years and making mistakes, learning from them, overcoming obstacles, fighting and clawing and now everything he’s ever wanted is just one win away! Will he capture this, or will he let it slip?

( Lucian Black enters the ring and paces around the ring with an intense mug on his face as his music dies down… )

( “Emperor’s New Clothes” by Panic! At The Disco hits… Aren Mstislav makes his way out wearing golden body-paint, with the words “King Of Elite” written on his back in paint and the royal colors of dark purple and burgandy on his boots and tights. )

RA: HIS OPPONENTS… First coming down the aisle, from St. Petersburg, Russia, weighing in tonight at 220 POOOOUNNNNDSSSSS…. ARRRREEEEEEEEENNNNNNN MSSSSSSSTISSSSSSLAAAAAAAVVVVVVVVV!!!!

Mercer: It’s been no cake walk for this young man either! He’s competed in battles just as much as Lucian Black has, including an EPIC semi-finals match up against Vic Vendetta where, honest to God, it could have gone either way! But Aren has worked up the ladder nonstop without ever taking so much as a break to get to this point! He is primed for a meteoric rise, and it would be well suited for a generational talent like him! REPRESENT OUR BRAND PROUD, BOY!!! DO IT FOR SHOWDOWN!!

( Aren enters the ring and keeps an eye on Lucian Black while he warms up for the match. Aren’s music dies down. )

( “Sound Of Silence” by Disturbed hits, and Eclipse Diemos walks through the curtain and down to the ring accompanied by Jocelyn… he holds his fedora in his hand and removes his coat halfway down the ramp, and as he approaches the ring he holds an intimidating gaze on his opponents in the ring. )

RA: And from the Prescott Hills Sanitarium, weighing in at 286 POOOOUNNNNDSSS…. EEEEECCLLIPPPPPPPSEEEEEEEE DIIIIIIIEEEEEEMOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSS!!!

Kawajai: Say what you will about “second chances”, but when an opportunity arrives you don’t dwell on anything other than the task at hand, and Eclipse Diemos has made it abundantly clear already in this night that he has come to WIN! He is a dark, brooding man who considers himself an outsider. But anything can happen in the Land of Elite, and the outsider could very well become king!

( All three men are in the ring, and “Sound Of Silence” slowly dies down.. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Stew: THE BELL HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN RUNG! The three most qualified men in all of the Land of Elite have risen through the ranks and have fought, scratched and clawed to make it here! Diemos, Mstislav, Black! They all remain at their corners, staring each other down… I think these three men truly understand the gravity behind such a monumental accomplishment like King Of Elite! This can cement the names of mere mortal men into the lore of EAW forever! These three combatants know it, and they’re primed and ready to put everything on the line to obtain such glory! Such honor! Such prestige! The three of them close in…. and AREN GOES INTO LUCIAN STRAIGHT AWAY DIGGING THE SHOULDERBLADE INTO THE MIDSECTION SENDING HIM TO THE CORNER, AND AREN FIRES OFF WITH A PALM CHOP AND BACKHAND CHOP TO THE CHEST! AREN SENDS CHOPS TO THE CHEST IN A FRENZY! But Lucian Black turns the tables and switches positions with Aren and himself, having Aren backed into the corner as Lucian delivers a headbutt followed by repeated short-arm corner clotheslines!

Kawajai: Lucian attempts to Irish whip Aren out of the corner… but AREN LOOKS TO REVERSE THE WHIP! Lucian stands his ground, and the two of them have a bit of a tug of war struggling for the Irish whip until Lucian Black MUSCLES AREN BACK IN AND SENDS AREN WITH A HARD WHIP INTO THE CORNER! NO, AREN RUNS UP THE CORNER AND BACKFLIPS OVER AND BEHIND LUCIAN BLACK, RUNS THE NEAREST ROPES, AND RICOCHETS OFF THE ROPES AS LUCIAN COMES AFTER AREN WITH A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE TAKING HIM DOWN! Diemos goes after Lucian — JUMPING CLOTHESLINE BY LUCIAN BLACK! Diemos and Mstislav are both back up and Lucian Black grabs both of them and does his best to Irish whip them both into the ropes… but they stand their ground! Lucian quickly hits a MEAN UPPERCUT TO THE JAW OF AREN! HEADBUTT TO DIEMOS! HEADBUTT TO AREN! RIGHT HANDS NOW FOCUSED ON DIEMOS AS DIEMOS IS BACKED INTO A CORNER! Lucian Black is coming at Diemos with everything he has in the form of punches! Those strikes of Lucian Black have a snap to them like no other competitor in this company!

Mercer: BUT WATCH OUT, IN COMES AREN FROM BEHIND FOR THE ROLL UP!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!!

Mercer: BARELY a one count as Lucian Black gets up… and meets Aren Mstislav as both men are on their knees with a MASSIVE UPPERCUT!! Aren rolls underneath the ropes and out of the ring and Lucian Black, just as he tries getting up to his feet gets met with a RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE BY DIEMOS! Lucian shoots up holding his face in pain and Diemos YANKS LUCIAN BLACK IN FOR THE CLOTHESLINE!! but Lucian Black’s not knocked off his feet by that! Instead he’s sent staggering back into the ropes and that prompts Diemos to get up and run the ropes behind him, come back and hit a CROSSBODY ON LUCIAN BLACK!!! …. BUT NO!!! LUCIAN CATCHES DIEMOS IN HIS ARMS!! HE CATCHES THE 286 POUND FRAME OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS, WITH THE ONLY SUPPORT BEING HIS OWN STRENGTH AND THE ROPES BEHIND HIM! HE’S LOOKING TO HIT A FALLAWAY SLAM OVER THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE…… BUT AREN ON THE APRON HITS A STEP-UP ENZIGURI INTO THE BACK OF LUCIAN BLACK’S HEAD!! Lucian stumbles forward just trying to stay on his feet, but he can’t! He collapses on his back as Eclipse Diemos crushes his torso! Lateral press!

Ref: OOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOO-

Stew: SPRINGBOARD FROGSPLASH BY AREN FROM THE APRON TO BREAK THE PIN!!! BUT DIEMOS QUICKLY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS AREN HITS LUCIAN BLACK WITH ALL OF THAT! The ref goes for the pin, but Diemos immediately grabs Aren up from Lucian’s chest with a DEADLIFT, LOOKING FOR A DEADLIFT FISHERMANS SUPLEX ON AREN!! BUT AREN’S FIGHTING IT! Aren’s hitting punches to the midsection, to the sides, and Diemos has no choice but to release as Aren hits several more right hands! Diemos backs into the ropes and Aren goes after him to Irish whip him, but Diemos counters the whip yanking Aren STRAIGHT INTO HIS KNEE WHICH IS BURIED IN THE GUT OF MSTISLAV, AND DIEMOS FOLLOWS IT UP WITH SEVERAL EUROPEAN UPPERCUTS! Aren stumbles away and drops to all fours, and Diemos jogs towards Aren, hops over him, runs the ropes near him and hits a BACK SENTON!!! NO, AREN FRONT-ROLLS OUT OF IT AND UP TO HIS FEET, RUNS THE ROPES, BUT LUCIAN BLACK COMES AFTER HIM! AREN RUSHES TO THE TURNBUCKLE INSTEAD AND HITS A TRIANGLE DROPKICK ON LUCIAN BLACK TAKING HIM DOWN TO A SEATED POSITION! AND DIEMOS RUSHES AT LUCIAN BLACK, SITTING UP ON THE CANVAS AND HITS A LOW RUNNING ELBOW TO THE FACE!! Lateral press!

Ref: OOOOOOOOONEE!!!

Kawajai: AND NOW IT’S AREN WHO JUMPS ONTO THE FRAY AND DEADLIFTS THE NEAR 300 POUND ECLIPSE DIEMOS WITH A FISHERMAN SUPLEX LEFT!!! MY GOODNESS, AREN SHOWING AN IMPRESSIVE DISPLAY OF STRENGTH FOR HIS SMALLER SIZE…. AND HITS THE THREE HANDLE MOSS COVERED FAMILY GREDUNZLE!!! AND HOOKS THE LEG AFTER THE MOVE CONNECTS!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE!! TWWWWO-

Kawajai: Kick out of two for Eclipse Diemos! Diemos is already stirring, and Aren gets back up as quickly as he can as he pulls Diemos off of the canvas again…. hooks him again… BUT THIS TIME HE’S LOOKING FOR THE RAGS TO RICHES!!! THIS TIME HE WANTS THE BRAINBUSTER!!! IS HE EVEN GOING TO GET IT???? … This time Eclipse Diemos is fighting whatever Aren’s trying to throw at him with punches… AREN LIFTS DIEMOS OFF HIS FEET, BUT HE JUST DOESN’T HAVE IT IN HIM TO LIFT THE 286 POUNDER ABOVE HIS HEAD! Diemos hits ANOTHER rib crushing shot! Aren backs away and Diemos takes Aren into the corner and hits a big time lunge straight into the ribs of the Russian Prince with the shoulderblade! Diemos backs away now… and he CHARGES BACK AT AREN COMING AT HIM LIKE A TRAIN!!! AREN LIFTS THE BOOT TO THE FACE AT THE LAST SECOND!!! Diemos drops to all fours while Aren is laying back in the corner — LOOK OUT!! LUCIAN BLACK RUSHES AT THEM, STEPS OFF ECLIPSE’S BACK AND HITS A LAUNCHING PAD ROLLING FOREARM INTO THE CORNERED AREN MSTISLAV!!! Aren collapses at the corner.. and Lucian Black brings Diemos back to his feet, waits for Aren to pull himself up to his feet at the corner… and LUCIAN WHIPS DIEMOS AS HARD AS HE CAN TO THE CORNERED AREN!!! DIEMOS COLLIDES WITH MSTISLAV!!! NO, AREN, USING THE CORNER FOR HELP JUMPS OVER THE ONCOMING ECLIPSE!! DIEMOS HITS THE CORNER HARD, AND NOW AREN CHARGES AT LUCIAN BLACK WITH THE ROLLING BIG BOOT!!! NOOPE!! LUCIAN DUCKS IT, AND GOES FOR THE ROLL UP!

Ref: OOOOOOOOONEE!!!! TW–

Mercer: LUCIAN WITH ALL THE POWER AND STRENGTH HE’S GOT HOISTS AREN UP FROM THAT ROLL UP, AND LIFTS THE ROLL UP INTO A POWERBOMB…. BUT WAIT, JUST AS AREN IS SENT DOWN TO THE MAT, AREN COUNTERS IT INTO A TRIANGLE CHOKE!!! LUCIAN BLACK’S CAUGHT IN THAT TRIANGLE CHOKE HOLD BY AREN MSTISLAV! A FANTASTIC COUNTER FROM SHOWDOWN’S VERY OWN RUSSIAN PRINCE, AND IT’S STRATEGY LIKE THAT THAT’LL BRING THE CROWN HOME IN A MATCH LIKE THIS! THE ABILITY TO THINK ON YOUR FEET, THE RECEPTIVENESS TO YOUR SURROUNDINGS, YOU’VE GOTTA APPLAUD IT! THAT LUCIAN BLACK IS IN A BAD WAY, I’LL TELL YOU THAT!

Stew: BUT LUCIAN BLACK ISN’T GOING TO LET A TRIANGLE CHOKE FINISH HIM… HE’S USING HIS STRENGTH TO MUSCLE AREN UP YET AGAIN!!! CAN HE DO IT?? Lucian…. LUCIAN…. HE’S GOT HIS FEET PLANTED, AND HE LIFTS AREN MSTISLAV UP…. AND BREAKS OUT OF THE TRIANGLE CHOKEHOLD WITH ANOTHER SITOUT POWERBOMB!!! THE WILL OF DYNASTY’S CHAMPION HELPS HIM ESCAPE FROM THAT PREDICAMENT, AND HE HOLDS IN THE PIN!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOO-

Stew: KICK OUT! Aren rolls away from Lucian Black now, and goes to the apron, and drops himself out of the ring to recover which albeit is a wise strategy if you’re in as vulnerable a position as he is. Lucian Black gets back up — BUT DIEMOS RUSHES AT HIM WITH A BLISTERING ASSAULT OF SLAPS, HEADBUTTS, AND NOW PUNCHES! HE’S JUST BEATING LUCIAN BLACK OVER THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND OVER THE SPINE WITH PUNCHES, REFUSING TO LET HIM RISE! AND DIEMOS YANKS HIM IN AND HITS A JACKKNIFE POWERBOMB ON LUCIAN BLACK!!! But Diemos didn’t get all of that jackknife! Diemos isn’t satisfied with the execution of that move, so Diemos scrapes Lucian up from the mat and PULLS HIM IN AGAIN, GOING FOR ANOTHER JACKKNIFE! BUT LUCIAN BLACK HAS HIS ARMS LOCKED AROUND THE LEGS, AND IS CENTERING HIS GRAVITY AND USING HIS WEIGHT TO HIS ADVANTAGE… LUCIAN BLACK COUNTERS IT WITH A BACK BODY DROP! That’s 286 pounds crashing right onto the canvas, and the bigger they are, the harder they fall!!! Eclipse Diemos rolls over holding his spine now and Lucian Black slides over his opponent for the cover…

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEE!!

Kawajai: LUCIAN JUMPS OFF OF HIS OPPONENT… AND AS AREN MSTISLAV GETS BACK ON THE APRON, LUCIAN BLACK HITS A RUNNING HIGH KNEE, KNOCKING AREN BACK DOWN TO RINGSIDE!! Lucian had that potential pin break well scouted, and he assesses the situation at ringside and can be a bit more at ease knowing that Aren’s down — BUT MAYBE I SPOKE TOO SOON! LUCIAN TURNS AROUND AND DIEMOS IS ALREADY BACK UP! DIEMOS COMES CHARGING AT LUCIAN BLACK FOR THE ROOM 13!!!! NO!!!! LUCIAN YANKS DOWN THE ROPES, AND DIEMOS IS CAUGHT STRADDLING THE RING ROPES WHILE GASPING IN PAIN!! That’s about the least comfortable ride a man can ever take! Diemos drops to the apron holding his groin after his Diemos Family Jewels meet that top rope — which does not have much give whatsoever! Maybe a common misconception is that those ring ropes don’t hurt, but even getting thrown into them can do some damage! Diemos is on the apron now trying to recover and Lucian Black steps out on the ring apron too… Black is clear across the apron from Diemos… AND HE COCKS HIS FIST…… CHARGES ACROSS THE RING APRON GOING FOR THE SUPERMAN PUNCH!!!!! NO!!!! DIEMOS CATCHES LUCIAN BLACK AND COUNTERS WITH THE URA NAGE RIGHT ONTO THE RING APRON!!! LUCIAN BLACK COLLAPSES TO RINGSIDE AFTER HIS BACK HITS THE SHARPEST, HARDEST PART OF THE RING!!!!

Murcer: That sure as hell didn’t look pretty! Myyy goodness! Lucian Black’s on his side, holding his back in just a world of hurt after that collision with the spine into the edge of the ring! Now Diemos hops off the apron and comes after Aren Mstislav… AND THE TWO OF THEM ENGAGE IN AN ALL OUT FIST FIGHT! AREN UNLEASHING ON DIEMOS, DIEMOS UNLEASHING ON AREN! THESE TWO MEN HARDLY HAVE ANY HISTORY TOGETHER, BUT THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR THAT CROWN LOOMING IN THE BACKGROUND! THEY ARE IN THIS FOR ALL THE RICHES OF THE WORLD, AND THEY WILL FIGHT LIKE DOGS TO OBTAIN IT! OH NOW DIEMOS DUCKS DOWN AND DRIVES AREN SPINE-FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE TO BREAK UP THE FIST FIGHT! Diemos grabs the left arm of Aren Mstislav now, takes it over to the steel steps and BRINGS THE ARM DOWN INTO THE STEPS!!! Aren limps away holding his arm and Diemos has found himself an opening, and perhaps has found himself in the drivers seat now as he gets behind Aren and hits a HAMMER-LOCK BACK SUPLEX RIGHT ONTO THE HOOD OF THE EMPTY VOLTAGE ANNOUNCE DESK TO OUR LEFT!!! AREN DROPS TO HIS KNEES HOLDING HIS LEFT ARM, AND DIEMOS TOPS IT OFF WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE TEMPLE!!! DIEMOS HAS GOT THIS MATCH IN HIS FAVOR AND ROLLS THE RUSSIAN PRINCE INTO THE RING, AND HE FOLLOWS HIM IN AND GETS THE LATERAL PRESS!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO-

Stew: KICK OUT BY MSTISLAV! The intelligent, the ever calculating and observant Eclipse Diemos placed all of his lower body weight on the left arm side by design! Diemos has already had to battle three other men earlier tonight in the King Of Elite Pre-Show to determine who would replace Gabriel Eden and represent Voltage in these KOE Finals. Diemos is calculating his next move, but that’s when Lucian Black re-enters the ring, and Diemos gets up as Lucian Black comes after Eclipse Diemos! Lucian goes for a right hand — OOHHHH! DIEMOS CAUGHT HIM WITH A SHOT TO THE THROAT!!! VICIOUS PUNCH TO THE THROAT, AND DIEMOS TAKES HIM ACROSS THE RING AND TOSSES HIM THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE! Lucian Black lands outside safely and charges back in the ring, but DIEMOS CATCHES LUCIAN WITH A KNEE TO THE HEAD JUST AS HE STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES! LUCIAN BLACK’S DRAPED OVER THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND DIEMOS HAS A DOUBLE UNDERHOOK AND HITS A PLETHORA OF KNEES STRAIGHT INTO THE STERNUM OF DYNASTY’S MASTODON! HE HITS FIVE STRAIGHT KNEES! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! And Lucian Black is left at a seated position on the apron…. Black drops off the apron onto his feet at ringside, spaghetti legged and Eclipse Diemos turns around and AREN MSTISLAV CHARGES AT DIEMOS!!!! BUT DIEMOS POPS UP AREN OVER THE ROPES WITH A FLAPJACK TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!! AREN IS SENT OVER THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE, AND CATCHES LUCIAN BLACK IN MIDAIR WITH THE TORNADO DDT!!!!!!!!! HOOOOOOOOOOOOLYYYYY……. WHAT A SEQUENCE THAT WAS!

Mercer: THAT WAS FANTASTIC!! WOW!! AREN TURNED THAT AROUND WITHIN SECONDS!!

Kawajai: DON’T SPEAK SO SOON FOR AREN, BUDDY. ECLIPSE DIEMOS IS COMING AFTER AREN AND PULLS HIM UP ALL THE WAY, AND DRIVES HIM ACROSS RINGSIDE SENDING HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!!! OH HE’S TURNED ABSOLUTELY INSIDE OUT BY THAT! AREN GOES FLIPPING OVER THE STEPS, AND IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP HOLDING HIS LEFT SHOULDER IN PAIN! You Showdown guys are an overzealous bunch, Diemos is still very much in the driver’s seat right now! Diemos has made sure to target that body part of Aren’s, and it’s a sound, sound strategy by the looks of it! And now Eclipse Diemos digs into the crowd and it appears he’s grabbing a steel chair from the audience, and goes over to Aren who’s just summoning up enough will to get to his feet… and DIEMOS WHACKS THE CHAIR INTO THE LEFT ARM OF AREN MSTISLAV!!! Aren collapses to his knees yelling in pain after that sadistic chair shot! Aren rushes to his feet…. ANOTHER CHAIRSHOT INTO THE SPINE!! That causes Aren to stumble to the apron and lean back on it for support while holding his left arm in a world of hurt… AND DIEMOS COMES BACK AFTER HIM WITH THE CHAIR FOR A THIRD CHAIRSHOT!!!! — NOOOOO!!! AREN COUNTERS WITH A BOOT TO THE CHAIR, SENDING THE CHAIR SMACKING INTO DIEMOS’ FACE!!!! DIEMOS GETS CUT DOWN TO SIZE WITH THAT LAST DITCH BOOT, AND AREN PULLS HIMSELF UP ONTO THE APRON WITH HIS ONE GOOD ARM WHILE DIEMOS IS DOUBLED OVER……

Mercer: KAISER’S CROWN!!!!!! KAISER’S CROOOOWWNNNN!!!! DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!! DIEMOS IS PLANTED FACE FIRST INTO HIS OWN CHAIR, AND SUBSEQUENTLY LAID OUT!! WHAT A PERFECT SPOT AREN HAS CHOSEN TO LAY DIEMOS OUT! Aren’s still suffering, especially with the damage he’s taken to the left arm, but he sure as hell is in this and might have even taken Diemos out of it! Aren rolls back into the ring…. Lucian Black is also in the ring kneeling on one knee… Aren comes at Lucian — BUT LUCIAN TAKES OFF FROM THE CROUCHED POSITION!!!!! SUPERMAN PUNCH!!!!!! DAMN IT! THAT GOT HIM!!!!!!!!! AREN CRUMPLES TO THE GROUND FROM THAT SUPERMAN PUNCH, AND LUCIAN BLACK HOOKS THE LEG!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Mercer: KICK OUT OF TWO! THANK GOD, A KICK OUT OF TWO! YEESH, did you guys SEE how goddamned hard Lucian hit him!!!

Stew: See it!? I HEARD it! I FELT it! That was a nasty shot, but it wasn’t enough…. but Lucian Black’s back up to his feet and you can just tell where his mind’s at… Lucian’s at the corner and he lets out a big time howl before the Mastadon takes his stance and waits for the prey to get into position! Aren’s dazed and groggy, trying to shake life back into him and shake off the cobwebs following that Superman Punch… Aren pulls himself back up to his feet…. LUCIAN TAKES OFFF!!!!!!!! SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEARRRRRRRRRR!!!! NO, AREN COUNTERS WITH A FLAPJACK INTO THE PUNT KICK TO THE TORSO!!! Lucian’s on his knees, Aren’s still bracing his arm — VENGEFUL UPBRINGING!!!! LOW SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF LUCIAN BLACK BY AREN! THAT JUST MAY BE IT!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Kawajai: KICK OUT OF TWO. An intuitive counter from the spear by Mstislav followed by a move that very well could have put his opponent away… Aren’s back up and is waiting and stalking Lucian Black from the far corner… Lucian’s using the ropes to pull himself up and is spitting out blood from his mouth. A tooth may have been knocked out by that gruesome kick! Lucian’s up, and AREN SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING LOOKING FOR SOMETHING, BUT LUCIAN COUNTERS WITH ANOTHER SUPERMAN PUNCH!!!! NO, AREN DUCKS IT! LUCIAN TURNS AROUND — PELE KICK!!! GOT HIM! LUCIAN’S SENT STAGGERING BACK INTO THE ROPES, AND AREN GETS UP AND GOES AFTER LUCIAN FOR HIS NEXT MOVE ……. LUCIAN RUSHES BACK AT AREN WITH A SPEEEEEEARRRRRRR!!! NOBODY HOME! AREN JUMPS OVER LUCIAN, ENDS UP BEHIND HIM AND GOES FOR THE GERMAN SUPLEX!! LUCIAN TURNS THE GERMAN SUPLEX INTO A STRUGGLE, IS CENTERING HIS GRAVITY, REFUSING TO BE LIFTED…. AND LUCIAN FRONT-ROLLS THROUGH THE GERMAN SUPLEX….. BUT AREN ROLLS THROUGH WITH HIM, SPINNERS DOWN HIS BACK AND CATCHES LUCIAN BLACK IN A GUILLOTINE CHOKE!!!! LUCIAN BLACK IS CAUGHT IN A GUILLOTINE CHOKE, WITH AREN’S LEGS WRAPPED AROUND HIS TORSO!! AREN’S REEEEEEEEARING BACK ON THAT CHOKE! NOBODY LASTS TOO LONG IN A MOVE LIKE THAT!

Stew: WAIT A MINUTE…. LUCIAN… LUCIAN’S GOT LEVERAGE! LUCIAN’S GOT LEVERAGE, HE’S GOT HIS FEET PLANTED ON THE GROUND AND OH MY GOODNESS, HE’S MANAGING TO PICK AREN MSTISLAV UP FROM THE GROUNDED GUILLOTINE CHOKE……… AND LUCIAN BLACK COUNTERS WITH A BACKFLIP NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX ON AREN!!!! AND LOOK!!! NOW HE DEADLIFTS AREN OFF THE GROUND TO CONNECT A DEADLIFT MICHINOKU DRIVER!! AMAZING, AMAZING BACKFLIP NORTHERN LIGHTS ROLLED INTO THE DEADLIFT MICHINOKU DRIVER BY LUCIAN, AND LUCIAN ISN’T DONE!!! LUCIAN GETS THE REVERSE FACELOCK ON THE GROUNDED AREN…. AND HITS THE MICHINOKU DRIVER II-B!!! AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS AFTER!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOONEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Stew: KICK OUT BY AREN! A whole lot of resilience shown by Mstislav after having that guillotine choke backfire on him. Lucian Black’s a bit worn down right now, but he’s been able to thrive in pretty much impossible scenarios before! He knows a lot about working against the odds because he’s been at war with the odds his entire career, and now he’s just a step away from —

Mercer: WAIT A MINUTE, STEW!!!! LOOK WHO COME CHARGING INTO THE RING!! IT’S ONI!!!! ONI AND VICTOR MAERO ARE IN THE RING, AND ARE DOUBLETEAMING LUCIAN BLACK!! LUCIAN’S TRYING TO FIGHT BOTH OF THESE MEN OFF, BUT THE SANATORIUM HAVE DOUBLETEAMED LUCIAN BLACK!!! AND ECLIPSE DIEMOS CREEPS BACK INTO THE RING, LAUGHING HIS HEAD OFF WHILE WATCHING THIS TWO ON ONE MUGGING! LUCIAN’S BARELY SURVIVING, THEY’VE GOT HIM ALL TIED UP NOW! Maero grabs Lucian Black and WHIPS HIM INTO DIEMOS AS DIEMOS AND ONI HIT THE GRAVEDIGGER!!!!!! SPINEBUSTER BY DIEMOS, JUMPING NECKBREAKER BY ONI!!! THE GRAVEDIGGER HAS LUCIAN BLACK PLANTED! And now the three are coming after Aren Mstislav… Aren’s just really been able to shake off those suplexes by Lucian Black, and MAERO COMES AT AREN WITH A CLUBBING BLOW TO THE MIDSECTION, AND AREN AND MAERO GET INTO A FIST FIGHT, BUT IT’S DOMINATED BY THE FRESH VICTOR MAERO WHO HITS REPEATED SHOTS TO THE HEAD! Aren collapses to the ground and Maero yanks him back up holding him by the arms from behind… and ECLIPSE DIEMOS HITS THE ROOM 13!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: NO!!!! NO!!!!! AREN JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND, AND ECLIPSE NAILS MAERO WITH THE ROOM 13 BY MISTAKE SENDING HIM FLYING THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING!! AND AREN GRABS ECLIPSE DIEMOS AND SENDS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!! BAD ARM AND ALL, AREN’S GETTING IT DONE! AREN CHARGES AT ONI — JUMPING FOREARM BY AREN!!! BUT ONI COUNTERS WITH A LOOOOOOOUD CHOP TO THE CHEST IN MIDAIR! AREN CLUTCHES HIS CHEST IN PAIN, AND ONI PLANTS AREN INTO THE CANVAS WITH THE THRUST SPINEBUSTER!!! ONI LETS OUT A ROAR TO THE CROWD AFTER THAT RING RATTLING SPINE BUSTER, AND HE TURNS TO LUCIAN BLACK WHO’S RECOVERING USING THE ROPES, AND WHIPS LUCIAN TO THE ROPES ONLY TO CATCH AN ONCOMING LUCIAN BACK WITH A THRUST SPINEBUSTE—- NOOOOOOOOOO!!! LUCIAN COUNTERS WITH THE SPEEEEEEARRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! ONI’S TURNED INSIDE OUT FROM THE SPEAR!!! HE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, AND THE SANATORIUM ARE BOTH DOWN AT RINGSIDE!! A BIG MOVE BY LUCIAN BLACK WHO’S STILL REELING FROM THAT GRAVEDIGG– ROOM 13!!!!!!!!! ROOM 13 BY ECLIPSE DIEMOS!!!!!!!!!! DIEMOS HAS TAKEN LUCIAN BLACK OUT!!!! OH MY GOD!!!! OH MY GOD!!! DIEMOS ROLLS AREN OUT OF THE RING, AND JUMPS OVER TO COVER LUCIAN!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

Stew: KICK OUT AT THE LAST INCH!!! THE LAST SECOND!!! LUCIAN BLACK IS STILL IN THIS!!! Eclipse Diemos is SHOCKED by that display of will and fortitude from Lucian Black! But at this point, you can’t be shocked! Lucian has fought, scratched and clawed from the bottom! The absolute BOTTOM! He’s no stranger to adversity, and when you meet a man like him who’s been through so much, you find quickly that it’ll take so much more to keep him down! Eclipse Diemos drags Lucian Black up from the ground while having him in a firm headlock… and he takes Lucian over to the turnbuckle… AND LIFTS HIS DEAD WEIGHT UP AND SITS HIM ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! ECLIPSE DIEMOS CLIMBS UP THE CORNER NOW, AND HAS MATCH ENDING INTENTIONS IN MIND!! DIEMOS IS PERCHED UP, STANDING ON THE SECOND ROPE, AND HAS LUCIAN BLACK IN A DOUBLE UNDERHOOK!!! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK SUPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE!!! BUT INCOMING FROM THE APRON, AREN MSTISLAV IS BACK IN THE MIX, AND HE CLIMBS UP THE TURNBUCKLE FROM THE APRON, AND HITS A FLURRY OF EUROPEAN UPPERCUTS ON ECLIPSE DIEMOS! Diemos hops off the turnbuckle now dazed from those uppercuts, and Lucian Black hits an elbow to the side of the head knocking Aren back down to the apron! Now Lucian Black gets up to a standing position on the top rope…. OHHHH MY LORD!! LUCIAN BLACK JUMPS OFF THE TOP ROPE FOR THE SUPERMAN PUNCH!!!! THAT HAD TO BE THE BIGGEST SUPERMAN PUNCH I’VE EVER SEEN!!! DIEMOS HAS BEEN TURNED INSIDE OUT!!! AND LUCIAN BLACK JOGS, VICTOR MAERO GETS UP ON THE APRON — SUPERMAN PUNCH!!!!!

Mercer: LUCIAN BLACK PUT LIFE AND LIMB ON THE LINE, AND QUITE FRANKLY THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO DO IN A MATCH LIKE THIS! Lucian drags himself back up to the apron……….. AND AREN CUTS LUCIAN OFF WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK ON THE APRON, SENDING LUCIAN FLYING AND HITTING THE RINGPOST HEADFIRST! LUCIAN BLACK’S SKULL JUST CONKED ONTO THE RINGPOST, AND SOMEHOW HE’S HOLDING HIMSELF ON THE APRON USING THE ROPES! SOMEHOW HE’S NOT KNOCKED OUT….

( “Sound Of Silence” by Disturbed hits )

RA: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND THE 2016 KING OF ELITE…. EEECCLLLIIPPPPPSEEEEEEEE DIIIIIEEEEEEMOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSS!!!!

Mercer: I DON’T BELIEVE IT.

Kawajai: ECLIPSE DIEMOS HAS UTTERLY SMASHED THROUGH THE GLASS CEILING, AND HAS SNATCHED THE CROWN FOR HIS TAKING!!! AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING VICTORY FOR A MAN WHO, FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES, SHOULDN’T HAVE EVEN BEEN IN THIS MATCH TO BEGIN WITH!

( ONI limps over to the timekeeper and smashes through the Crystal Glass display where the King Of Elite crown sit. ONI takes the crown, goes into the ring while Victor “Maero” places a dark velvet King’s robe over Diemos’ shoulders. )

Stew: Ladies and Gentlemen, the betting odds have been completely flipped on their head with this result! I don’t think I could have even DREAMED of this being the turn out! It’s not a knock on Diemos, but he fought literally from the absolute bottom, from the pre-show, and has now solidified himself in the lore of EAW for years and years to come!

( Diemos drops to his knees and holds his arms out… ONI raises the crown high over his head and the arena lights begin glowing red from above… ONI places the crown on Eclipse Diemos’ head, and Diemos laughs like a madman )

Stew: Eclipse Diemos has made the ULTIMATE ASCENSION! Darkness falls on the Land Of Elite! The Underworld has risen to the surface, and the outsider in one foul swoop has now come to power!

( Replays air of the events that took place in the match )

( Camera goes back to the live feed, and The Sanatorium all walk up the ramp including Eclipse Diemos, sporting the robe and crown on his head. Aren Mstislav and Lucian Black are seen recovering at ringside, exhausted and battle damaged while they lie in defeat. The lights remain red, and Diemos reaches the stage where his throne awaits. Eclipse Diemos takes a seat on the throne, and laughs his head off while ONI and Victor Maero stand by… Diemos is seen celebrating his victory until the camera fades away. )

Mack: Ohh man, I’ve been waiting for this match all night! We’ve seen all kinds of Championship gold defended, we just saw a new King CROWNED, but a match like this is for nothing but sending a message to one another! These two men clashed the very moment Tyler Parker made his presence known on Voltage, and I can’t wait to see what they’re capable of against each other in that ring!

(A video package plays, highlighting the feud between Tyler Parker and Ares Vendetta)

(Camera transitions back to the Allstate Arena as “Never Catch Me” by Travis Scott plays all throughout the arena to a chorus of cheers)

Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall….

(A determined Tyler Parker makes his way out to the stage in a custom hooded jacket with red and gold trunks)

Announcer: First, making his way towards the ring… From San Diego, California!…. Weighing in at 213 pounds!… HE IS THE “FACE OF EAW”…. TYLER PAAAAARRRRRRRRRRKKKKEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRR!!!….

Kawajai: This may be Tyler Parker’s first big match on Voltage, but we’ve been sitting here at this table and seen THAT look in his eyes many times in the past. THAT fiery look of determination that brings out a monster in Tyler whenever he steps into the ring, and that’s exactly what’s made him a two-time World Heavyweight Champion. He’s got a point to prove to Ares Vendetta tonight, and he’s gonna do whatever it takes to make it happen.

(“Monster” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the Allstate Arena as the crowd erupts with boos)

Mack: You’re right, Kawa, we’ve seen Tyler like this many times in the past, and it’s brought him victory, but not one of those times was he facing an opponent quite like this!

(Ares Vendetta makes his way out to the stage in red and black tights with a steel chair in hand, staring down with Tyler Parker)

Announcer: And his opponent!…. Making his way towards the ring…. From Tokyo, Japan!…. Weighing in at 217 pounds!…. HE IS “THE OMEN”…. ARES VEEEEENNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDEEETTTTTAAAAAAAA!!!….

Kawajai: Hold on… What’s this?

(Ares remains on the stage as Rook and Bishop roll someone out on a wheelchair)

Kawajai: We’ve seen him before! They’ve got Robbie V with them! He’s practically catatonic – what could Ares possibly mean to do by bringing him out here?

(Ares has Rook pull Robbie out of the wheelchair and unfolds the steel chair in hand)

Mack: I… I’m not particularly sure myself…

(Ares unfolds the chair as Rook places Robbie in it… Ares leans down and gets in Robbie’s face)

Ares (no microphone): I want you to see THIS! I’m gonna do what you never could!

(Ares grabs the wheelchair and throws it off the stage before finally making his way towards the ring, leaving Rook, Bishop, and Robbie V on the stage)

Mack: I guess there’s your answer, Kawa! You heard it yourself! Ares Vendetta has said multiple times that when his father beat Tyler Parker two years ago around this time, he needed a handicap! He needed an advantage to win! We’ve seen what Ares is capable of after what he did to Hades and Devan Dubian, and I’ve got a feeling he’ll not only outshine his father by winning this match – he’s gonna put Tyler Parker out of commission too!

(Ares Vendetta and Tyler Parker stare down from opposite corners of the ring as the Referee calls for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Kawajai: This contest is officially underway – Tyler Parker versus Ares Vendetta – as both men take no caution towards one another as they step into the center of the ring, face to face! You can just FEEL the animosity radiating off these two athletes! AND ARES IS THE FIRST TO MAKE A MOVE AS HE LOUDLY CATCHES TYLER WITH AN OPEN-PALM CHOP TO THE FACE! Ares doesn’t even follow it up with anything, that was nothing more than a showing of disrespect to Tyler! Ares is–TYLER FIRES BACK WITH AN EVEN LOUDER SLAP TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF ARES! THE SOUND OF THAT ONE! That smile on Ares’ face went away real fast after that! Look at the stream of blood running down Ares’ right ear – I think Tyler may have bursted Ares’ eardrum with that slap! Ares almost–TYLER STRIKES HIM WITH A ANOTHER OPEN-PALM STRIKE! ANOTHER! ANOTHER!

Mack: HE’S GOT ARES BACKING INTO THE NEAREST CORNER AS HE MERCILESSLY CHOPS HIM ACROSS THE FACE, AGAIN AND AGAIN!! ARES ISN’T EVEN TRYING TO DEFEND HIMSELF! HE’S EGGING TYLER ON! TYLER’S NOT EVEN SLAPPING HIM ACROSS THE FACE ANYMORE – HE’S JUST THROWING STRAIGHT PUNCHES TO THE FACE OF ARES VENDETTA NOW! THE REFEREE’S TRYING TO GET HIM TO PUT A STOP TO THE ASSAULT!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! BREAK IT UP, TYLER!

Kawajai: AND ARES EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER WITH A HEADBUTT RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES OF TYLER PARKER JUST AS HE PUTS A STOP TO THE ASSAULT!! TYLER FIRES BACK WITH ANOTHER RIGHT HAND! THE ENTIRE ARM OF TYLER IS CAUGHT WITH A TAKEDOWN!! LOOKING FOR A CROSS ARMBREAKER!! TYLER CLUTCHES THE BOTTOM ROPE IMMEDIATELY!

Referee: ONE! TWO!

Mack: Ares breaks the hold, but immediately kicks Tyler out of the ring, under the bottom rope! Ares rolls to the outside as Tyler tries to get back to a vertical base–ARES GRABS HIM AND SENDS HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS! ARES LUNGES INTO A NOW DOWNED TYLER AGAINST THOSE STEPS! HE’S UNLOADING WITH FOREARMS STRAIGHT INTO TYLER AS THE BACK OF TYLER’S SKULL BOUNCES AGAINST THE TOP OF THOSE STEEL STEPS!! HE PULLS TYLER UP WITH HIM NOW… AND LITERALLY THROWS TYLER INTO THE NEARBY BARRICADE! ARES VENDETTA SHOWING SOME IMPRESSIVE STRENGTH HERE AS TYLER PARKER STRUGGLES TO PULL HIMSELF UP AGAINST THE BARRICADE! ARES RUSHES IN WITH A HEINOUS BOOT OFF THE SIDE OF TYLER’S FACE! A SHOOT KICK TO THE STERNUM OF TYLER, TRAPPED AGAINST THE BARRICADE!

Referee: FIVE!!………… SIX!!…………..

Kawajai: ARES VENDETTA ABSOLUTELY UNLOADING THOSE SHOOT KICKS AGAIN AND AGAIN INTO TYLER’S CHEST! BLOOD IS TRICKLING DOWN THE CHEST OF TYLER HERE AS ARES FINALLY PUTS A STOP TO THE ASSAULT! Ares quickly rolls back into the ring, and back out to break the Referee’s count! He makes his way over to Tyler and pulls him in! PICKING HIM UP!! POWERBOMB!!! HE JUST POWERBOMBS TYLER PARKER SPINE-FIRST ONTO THE TOP OF THE BARRICADE!!! WHAT A SADIST THIS GUY IS! Ares promptly makes his way back to the ring and rolls in – telling the Referee to start counting Tyler out! He can’t possibly be just looking for some countout win, can he?!

Referee: ONE!!……………

Mack: I’m not even gonna attempt to get into the mind of a guy like Ares Vendetta, Kawa! The only thing that’s for sure is Tyler is laid out here on the outside and he NEEDS to get back in!

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

Kawajai: This match hasn’t even been going on for that long and Tyler Parker could very well already be injured as he struggles to move…

Referee: FIVE!!……… SIX!!!………….

Mack: As much as I’d love to see Ares take the win here, I got a feeling Tyler’s gonna push through – we’ve seen him go through worse than that!

Referee: SEVEN!!!……….

Kawajai: Hold on! Ares seems to have something in mind as Tyler rises to his feet… Ares gets out onto the apron, breaking the Official’s count! He’s stalking Tyler! TYLER TURNS AROUND AS ARES CHARGES! A HUGE RUNNING KICK TO THE CHEST OF TYLER!! NO–TYLER’S CAUGHT THE LEG OF ARES! ARES IS TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF AWAY, BUT TYLER DRAGS HIM DOWN, ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!! POWERBOMB!!! A BIG POWERBOMB CONNECTS ONTO THE RING APRON BY TYLER PARKER!! HE’S NOT FINISHED YET–HE GRABS A HOLD OF ARES AND CHARGES WITH FULL HEAD OF STEAM!! HE SENDS ARES CRASHING STRAIGHT THROUGH THE TIMEKEEPER’S BOOTH!!!

Mack: Crazy! What a display of strength from both of these guys! Look at the carnage they’ve already caused in such a short amount of time!

Referee: ONE!!!……….. TWO!!…………..

Kawajai: They’ve taken it to one another in spades tonight, but they’ve got to remember that this isn’t no holds barred or extreme rules! They need to take it back into the ring!

Referee: THREE!!!……… FOUR!!…………. FIVE!!…….

Mack: Both men showing signs of life, but it looks like Tyler Parker’s in the lead as he climbs back up to his feet, using the ring apron…

Referee: SIX!!!……….. SEVEN!!!…….

Kawajai: Tyler’s back in! Ares still needs to get there! He’s still trying to pull himself up!

Referee: EIGHT!!!………..

Kawajai: Ares stumbles towards the apron, climbing up! Tyler’s up in the ring as he charges into Ares with a knee to the gut, breaking the count! Ares tries to fire back with a forearm, but he’s met with a right hand from Tyler! Another shot! Another! ANOTHER FIST CONNECTS! TYLER SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE NEARBY MIDDLE ROPE! FINAL CHAPTER!!! NOBODY’S HOME AS ARES SMARTLY DROPS OFF THE APRON! Hold on–Tyler immediately rolling out to the apron, climbing back to his feet as Ares tries to recuperate! ARES TURNS AROUND AS TYLER SPRINGBOARDS!! FINAL CHAPTER TO THE OUTSIDE!!! THE FOOT OF TYLER CONNECTS WITH THE FACE OF ARES VENDETTA AS HE’S SENT FLYING OVER THE DYNASTY ANNOUNCE TABLE!! TYLER ISN’T HESITATING OR ANYTHING! HE MAY WANT TO END THIS RIGHT HERE AND NOW AS HE GRABS A HOLD OF ARES! Tyler drags his opponent back up to his feet and navigates him back to the ring! Ares is sent rolling back into the ring as Tyler slides in–No! Ares immediately manages to drop out of the ring to avoid any potential pinning attempt!

Mack: A brilliant strategy! He knew the end may have been on the horizon for him if he stayed in that ring! Tyler’s not letting him off the hook that easy though as he rolls to the outside with him and grabs a hold of Ares! ARES WITH A STIFF ELBOW THROWN BACK INTO THE FACE OF TYLER! Tyler just forces Ares to roll back into the ring, still hoping to finish the job! Tyler slides back in as Ares now struggles to get back to a vertical base! Both men up in the ring! ARES SWINGS AND CONNECTS WITH AN OPEN-PALM STRIKE OFF THE FACE OF TYLER! TYLER TRIES TO RETURN THE FAVOR, BUT IT’S BLOCKED! ARES WITH ANOTHER STRIKE! A THIRD! A FOURTH! TYLER GRABS A HOLD OF ARES BY HIS FACE WITH BOTH HANDS–HE LITERALLY LAUNCHES HIM WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX-LIKE MANEUVER AS ARES IS SENT CRASHING INTO THE CORNER OF THE RING!! A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF STRENGTH THIS MAN, TYLER PARKER, HAS! Unbelievable! I got a bad feeling about this!

Kawajai: This Rosemont Crowd is rallying loudly behind the former two-time World Champion as he grabs a hold of Ares and pulls him into the center of the ring! HE PULLS HIM IN! PICKING HIM UP!! DEPRAVITY!!!! KNEE TO THE SKULL OF TYLER FROM ARES! ARES REFUSES TO LET THE DEPRAVITY CONNECT AS HE DRIVES ANOTHER KNEE INTO THE SKULL OF TYLER! A THIRD SUCCESSFUL KNEE AS ARES DROPS DOWN! TYLER TRIES TO TAKE BACK CONTROL, BUT ARES CATCHES HIM WITH A DOUBLE UNDERHOOK! HE SENDS A KNEE INTO THE BODY OF TYLER WITH THAT DOUBLE UNDERHOOK IN! ARES VENDETTA JUST UNLEASHING A FLURRY OF KNEES STRAIGHT INTO THE BODY OF HIS OPPONENT NOW!! TYLER IS POWERLESS! NO–THE POWER OF TYLER PARKER NOW! THAT STRENGTH HE’S DISPLAYING AS HE STARTS TO LIFT ARES VENDETTA UP FROM THIS DOUBLE UNDERHOOK POSITION!! ARES CAN’T BELIEVE IT AS TYLER TAKES HIM OVER WITH A MODIFIED NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!! BUT ARES VENDETTA LETS GO OF THE UNDERHOOK AND DROPS DOWN INTO A ROLL-UP ON TYLER!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!…….

Mack: TYLER COUNTERS IT INTO A PINNING ATTEMPT OF HIS OWN AS HE’S GOT BOTH LEGS OF ARES TRAPPED!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……. TWO!!!!

Kawajai: ARES REVERSES IT BACK INTO A PINNING ATTEMPT OF HIS OWN!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……

Mack: TYLER KICKS OUT OF IT AS BOTH MEN SCRAMBLE BACK TO THEIR FEET AS QUICKLY AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE! THEY BOTH THINK THE SAME THING ON AS THEY SEND HEADBUTTS INTO EACH OTHER THE MOMENT THEY BOTH MAKE IT BACK UP! SKULL MEETS SKULL A SECOND TIME AS THEY COLLIDE WITH INDIVIDUAL HEADBUTTS! A THIRD EXCHANGE OF HEADBUTTS CONNECTS AS YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUND OF IT FROM HERE! ARES WITH A LEFT HAND! TYLER WITH A RIGHT HAND! BOTH MEN THROW A SERIES OF FOREARMS INTO ONE ANOTHER, JOCKING FOR POSITION OF THIS MATCH!! BOTH MEN MERCILESSLY COMING TO BLOWS IN THE CENTER OF THIS RING AS THE REFEREE CAN DO NOTHING BUT SIMPLY WATCH! THEY BREAK UP THE EXCHANGE AND CRACK SKULLS FOR A FOURTH TIME!! TYLER PARKER MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A ROLLING ELBOW TO THE FACE OF ARES!! AND A ROLLING BACKHAND CRASHES INTO THE FACE OF TYLER FROM ARES AS BOTH MEN COMPLETELY CRUMBLE!! THEY’RE BOTH DOWN!! THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET AS BOTH OF THESE COMPETITORS HAVE TAKEN ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING OUT OF ONE ANOTHER!

Kawajai: Thus far an unbelievable contest between these two vicious competitors in Tyler Parker and Ares Vendetta! They’ve taken it to one another with everything in their arsenal and it seems as though they may have nothing left to give! The Referee has no choice but to start a count as these two men may not even be able to physically continue after exhausting themselves!

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

Mack: Both of these guys are stirring, but you can see how much they’re struggling to get up before the count of ten! Rook and Bishop remain up on the stage, watching along with Robbie V as he motionlessly sits in that chair… And you can guarantee that’s what’s pushing Ares to keep going!

Referee: SIX!!!…….. SEVEN!!!………..

Kawajai: Tyler and Ares seem to have clung to one another, using the other to help themselves up as the Referee counts away!

Referee: EIGHT!!………. NINE!!!………

Mack: And they both just barely manage to make it back up! They push away from one another as Tyler’s the first to swing! SAIKA KICK!!! ARES WITH THAT DEVASTATING BRAZILIAN KICK RIGHT OFF THE SIDE OF TYLER’S SKULL! TYLER DROPS DOWN AS ARES GOES STUMBLING BACKWARDS, CATCHING THE ROPES TO KEEP HIMSELF UP! He may be feeling it! The time is ripe! It’s his golden opportunity to finish this match once and for all as Tyler is laid out before him! Ares seems to be thinking the same thing as he slowly makes his way towards a nearby corner! He and Tyler have been unleashing absolutely EVERY ounce of power onto one another and you can see the effects of it right now as Ares struggles through the pain to make it to the corner and start ascending! Tyler doesn’t seem close enough to go for that Five Star Phoenix Splash we’ve seen as of late! It looks like Ares is going back to the basics as he–TYLER RUSHES BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND MANAGES TO STOP ARES IN TIME WITH A CLUBBING BLOW TO THE FACE! ARES DROPS DOWN ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS TYLER LOOKS TO TAKE BACK CONTROL! HE NAILS ARES WITH ANOTHER VICIOUSLY-LOUD FOREARM OFF THE FACE! TYLER’S CLIMBING UP THERE WITH HIM!

Kawajai: Ares is doing his damndest to fight back with shots to the body of Tyler, but Tyler just deals him more clubbing shots, this time to the spine! TYLER’S SETTING ARES UP!! DEADLIFTING ARES UP…. ARES ISN’T HAVING IT AS HE CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE AS IF HIS LIFE DEPENDS ON IT! AND IT JUST MIGHT IF TYLER HAS ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT! Ares is fighting back with all that he’s got left in the tank! Tyler fires back as well as both men come to blows on the top turnbuckle! BOTH MEN LAYING INTO ONE ANOTHER WITH THOSE EXCRUCIATING HARD SHOTS! HOLD ON–ARES PULLS TYLER IN!! HE’S BITING HIM!! HE’S LITERALLY BITING TYLER PARKER!! ARES STOPS BITING TYLER AND MANAGES TO PICK HIM UP!! FRONT SUPLEX SENDS TYLER CRASHING DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! HE’S GOT A CHANCE TO END IT HERE AS ARES REGAINS HIS BALANCE!! HE’S GOT IT! METEORA!!! NO–TYLER PULLS HIMSELF OUT OF THE WAY USING THE NEARBY BOTTOM ROPE!! ARES MANAGES TO LAND AND ROLL BACK UP TO HIS FEET TO AVOID CRASHING AND BURNING! ARES IS UP AND WITH A LOOK OF TOTAL DISDAIN FOR TYLER PARKER, STALKS HIM FROM ACROSS THE RING!

Mack: THE HATE BURNING IN THIS MAN’S EYES! TYLER STRUGGLES TO PULL HIMSELF UP! ARES COMES CHARGING WITH MOMENTUM AT HIS BACK! WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT LEFT! TYLER SENDS HIM UP?! POWERBOMB!!! A POP-UP POWERBOMB CONNECTS ON ARES VENDETTA!! TYLER’S NOT FINISHED YET! LOOK AT THIS! HE STARTS LIFTING ARES’ BODY BACK UP!! INCREDIBLE! THE SHEER STRENGTH IT TAKES TO PULL THIS OFF AS TYLER DEADLIFTS ARES BACK UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!! A SECOND POWERBOMB CONNECTS!!! HE’S GOING FOR A THIRD!! HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE ARES STAYS DOWN WHEN HE GOES FOR THE COVER AS HE STARTS LIFTING HIM BACK UP ONCE AGAIN!! NO–ARES COUNTERS THE THIRD ATTEMPT INTO A TRIANGLE CHOKE!! TYLER LOSES CONTROL AND DROPS DOWN TO THE CANVAS, LOCKED IN THIS SUBMISSION!! ARES RAPIDLY DRAINING THE LIFE OUT OF TYLER PARKER!! TYLER’S DOING ALL HE CAN, BUT IT’S NOT MUCH!! ARES SWITCHES IT INTO A GOGOPLATA NOW!!! THIS IS IT! THIS HAS GOTTA BE IT!

Kawajai: THE LOOK IN ARES’ EYES SAYS IT ALL! HE’LL KILL TYLER PARKER RIGHT HERE IN THIS RING IF IT MEANS WALKING OUT OF HERE WITH A VICTORY THAT HIS FATHER COULD NEVER PULL OFF! HE’S SQUEEZING EVERY OUNCE OF OXYGEN OUT FROM THE BODY OF TYLER PARKER! HOLD ON–TYLER’S NOT FINISHED QUITE YET! HE’S STILL PUSHING! HE’S STILL FIGHTING! HE CAN’T GET TO THE ROPES, BUT HE’S TRYING TO THROW SHOTS INTO ARES ALL THEY HE CAN! I DON’T THINK IT’S DOING HIM ANY GOOD! HOLD ON! TYLER’S TRYING TO LIFT HIM! HE’S OUT OF HIS MIND! TYLER’S HEAVING WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT LEFT IN HIM! THIS MAY BE ALL OR NOTHING FOR TYLER PARKER!!

Mack: I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I’M SEEING! TYLER’S LITERALLY LIFTING ALL 217 POUNDS OF ARES VENDETTA OFF THE CANVAS AND UP IN THE AIR!! HE–POWERBOMB!!! HE POWERBOMBS ARES VENDETTA DOWN TO THE CANVAS, BREAKING THE GOGOPLATA!! TYLER FRANTICALLY GASPS FOR AIR AS THE GOGOPLATA IS BROKEN! HE NEEDS TO COVER! TYLER MANAGES TO JUST HOOK THE LEG OF ARES!!

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

Kawajai: ARES GETS A SHOULDER UP!! This match will continue! Tyler Parker was wishing that would be the end, but unfortunately, I think he’s dealing with an opponent that’s every bit as resilient as himself! Tyler still feels the effects from that Gogoplata as he continues to frantically inhale and exhale, but he needs to focus on ending this! He’s RIGHT there! He’s one move away from ending this once and for all! ONE move from proving his dominance now that he’s arrived here on Voltage! A victory tonight over Ares could easily get him a World Championship shot at Mr. DEDEDE! Tyler clutches the hair of Ares in his hands and slowly drags him up with him… The look on Tyler’s face says it all! He wants to finish this! He’s–Ares manages to push him away! Ares on spaghetti legs here! Tyler tries to–Ares catches him with a clubbing shot to the ear of Tyler! DISCUS CLOTHESLINE FROM ARES!! TYLER DUCKS AS THE REFEREE GETS CAUGHT WITH THAT VICIOUS CLOTHESLINE!! TYLER FROM BEHIND!! HE’S GOT HIM!! ACROSS THE PARK!!!! TYLER PARKER DRILLS ARES INTO THE CANVAS WITH THE ACROSS THE PARK!! HE ROLLS HIM OVER WITH ALL THAT HE’S GOT LEFT AND HOOKS THE LEG OF ARES, BUT IT’S NO GOOD! THE REFEREE IS OUT! I DON’T KNOW IF HE’LL EVER BE GETTING BACK UP!

Mack: Tyler realizes that the Official is out, crawling over to him, hoping to revive him, but he just took one HELL of a shot from Ares! Tyler’s become a desperate man as he furiously tries to shake the Referee back to life! He drops the Official and looks back at his opponent… Tyler glances over at Ares’ father, Robbie V, still on the stage with Rook and Bishop.. Tyler looks like he’s got something in mind here as he grabs a hold of Ares! His only resort now may be to just make sure Ares stays down! He drags him up with all he’s got left! LOWBLOW!!! ARES VENDETTA LOWBLOWS TYLER!! ARES SPRINGS UP AND CONNECTS WITH THE HEAVENS FALL ON TYLER!!! BOTH MEN LAID OUT! A BRILLIANT MOVE FROM ARES! HE TOOK THIS CONTEST FROM THE ODDS BEING AGAINST HIM TO LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD ENTIRELY! Ares slowly rolling to the outside now.. Where does he think he’s going? He’s stumbling his way up the ramp!

Kawajai: I don’t know what the Hell he’s thinking… His opponent’s in the ring! He could be looking for a new Official to come out here, but something tells me that’s not the case… Ares makes his way up to the stage, bruised and battered! Looking down at his father… HE PUSHES ROBBIE V OUT OF THE CHAIR!! WHAT THE HELL IS HE THINKING?! COME ON, ARES! HE TAKES THAT CHAIR HIS FATHER WAS SITTING ON AND FOLDS IT UP! A COLD AND CALLOUS LOOK ON ARES’ FACE AS HE LOOKS AT HIS DOWNED FATHER BEFORE TURNING BACK TOWARDS THE RING! Tyler Parker is struggling to get back up as Ares begins to pick up momentum! Tyler’s almost up! Ares slides back into the ring with that chair in hand! TYLER’S UP! ARES RUSHES IN AND CRACKS THAT STEEL CHAIR ACROSS TYLER PARKER’S SKULL–MY GOD WHAT A SICKENING SOUND!!! LOOK AT THE DENT IN THAT STEEL CHAIR! THIS GUY IS DISGUSTING! ARES NOW SMACKS THE CHAIR OFF THE SPINE OF A DOWNED TYLER PARKER! AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!! ARES UNLOADING WITH AN ONSLAUGHT OF UNFORGIVING CHAIR SHOTS INTO TYLER!! HE THROWS THE CHAIR OUT OF THE RING AND… Oh boy… He backs into the nearby corner… I think I know what he’s planning… The tenacious Tyler Parker, STILL trying to keep himself in this match as he grasps the nearby ropes and desperately tries to pull himself up! Blood running down Tyler’s face from that chair shot!

Mack: He needs to just give up! Just give up already, Tyler! Ares looks like a mad dog, practically foaming at the mouth as he stalks Tyler from the corner! Shades of how Robbie V defeated Tyler for the World Championship two years ago! TYLER’S UP AS ARES COMES CHARGING!! SPEAR!!!! A SPEAR NEARLY BREAKS TYLER PARKER IN HALF AS ARES SHAKES THE NEARBY REFEREE TO LIFE!! HE HOOKS THE LEG OF TYLER AS THE REFEREE TRIES TO GET BACK IN THIS!! I LOVE THIS!

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

Kawajai: TYLER KICKS OUT!! TYLER PARKER JUST KICKED OUT BEFORE THE REF’S HAND COULD COME DOWN FOR A THIRD TIME! HE’S STILL ALIVE! HE’S STILL FIGHTING! ARES’ CAN’T BELIEVE IT! ARES IS ABSOLUTELY LIVID!! HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT, AND HONESTLY, NEITHER CAN I! Ares grabs a hold of Tyler and starts dragging him back up! Both of these men look like they’re half-dead here as they rise up to their feet! Ares with a few choice words for Tyler to his face as he gets him up! ARES CHARGES INTO THE ROPES! COMING BACK! A SECOND SPEAR!!!! TYLER DOESN’T GO DOWN!! HE’S CAUGHT ARES!! ARES IS FIGHTING! TYLER DEADLIFTS HIM UP!! DEPRAVITY!!!! A HUGE DEPRAVITY OUT OF COMPLETE DESPERATION FROM TYLER PARKER!! HE NEEDS TO COVER HIM! COVER HIM AND THIS IS OVER, TYLER!! HE’S STRUGGLING! HE’S PUSHING EVERYTHING HE’S GOT TO MAKE THIS COVER!! HE’S INCHES AWAY! NO–ARES SOMEHOW MANAGES TO ROLL HIMSELF TO THE OUTSIDE BEFORE TYLER CAN MAKE THE COVER!!

Mack: AGAIN, A BRILLIANT STRATEGY! THAT was gonna be it! I guarantee it! Ares Vendetta just saved himself from defeat! Tyler still trying to pursue him as he clutches the ropes and slowly drags himself up!

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

Kawajai: Tyler… Hold on… He’s up, but he starts making his way towards the corner? He’s climbing up! Ares uses the apron on the outside to aid him as Tyler ascends to the top turnbuckle! He’s perched! ARES IS UP! LOOK OUT!! MOONSAULT!!! A HUGE MOONSAULT CONNECTS TO THE OUTSIDE ONTO ARES VENDETTA!!! WHAT A MOVE! TYLER PARKER’S GOT HIS THIRD OR FOURTH WIND IN THIS CONTEST, IT SEEMS! ADRENALINE FLOWING THROUGH HIS BODY, HE’S PUSHING HIMSELF BACK UP! HE DRAGS ARES BACK UP… AND SENDS HIM ROLLING BACK INTO THE RING! TYLER’S COMING TO FINISH THIS ONCE AND FOR ALL AS HE ROLLS BACK IN WITH ARES LOCKED IN HIS SIGHTS! HE GRABS A HOLD OF ARES AND PULLS HIM UP WITH HIM!! HE–ARES TURNS TYLER AROUND–KATAHAJIME!!! HE’S GOT THE KATAHAJIME SUBMISSION IN ON TYLER PARKER!!! HOW THE HELL IS HE DOING THIS?! TYLER REFUSES TO LET ARES BRING HIM DOWN AND LOCK IN THE BANSHEE CLUTCH!! HE BURSTS FORWARD AND MANAGES TO BREAK THE HOLD AS ARES IS SENT TOPPLING TO THE OUTSIDE OVER THE TOP ROPE!!

Mack: Tyler just BARELY saving his hide there as he drops down against the ropes, exhausted! These two men have absolutely–ARES IS BACK UP ON THE OUTSIDE!! HE REACHES IN FOR THE KATAHAJIME ONCE MORE FROM THE OUTSIDE!! HE’S GOT IT AS HE DRAGS TYLER HALF-WAY OUT OF THE RING!! THE REFEREE STARTS A COUNT WITH TYLER DIRECTLY UNDER THE ROPES!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Kawajai: ARES BREAKS THE HOLD, BUT THROWS A FLURRY OF CLUBBING BLOWS INTO THE STERNUM OF TYLER AS HE HANGS HALF-WAY OUT THE RING ON THE APRON! ARES FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A BOOT TO THE SIDE OF TYLER’S SKULL! ARES CLIMBS UP ON THE APRON, POTENTIALLY LOOKING TO END THIS! HE STARTS ASCENDING UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE? WHAT’S HE THINKING NOW? Tyler’s stuck limply hanging off the apron as Ares is up… It doesn’t look like he’s in position for a Meteora… HE–JESUS CHRIST!! FIVE STAR PHOENIX SPLASH!!!!

(“Monster” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as Ares Vendetta fully drops down on the canvas, exhausted and hurt)

Announcer: The Winner of this contest by pinfall!!…… ARES VEEEENNNNNNDDDDDDEEEETTTTTTTAAAAAAAAA!!!!

Mack: I DON’T KNOW WHAT KIND OF COMBINATION THAT WAS HE JUST ENDED THIS WITH, BUT IT WORKED! ARES VENDETTA DID IT! ARES VENDETTA JUST TOPPLED TYLER PARKER HERE TONIGHT AT KING OF ELITE! I KNEW HE COULD DO IT!

Kawajai: An absolutely EXHAUSTING and violent, vicious bout we have just witnessed here tonight! These two men took one another to their limits and beyond! What a showcase of athleticism and pure, gritty, fighting spirit that Ares Vendetta seems to bring out in his opponents! Tyler Parker may have been defeated tonight, but he went out fighting until the bitter end! You can’t take that from him!

Mack: No you can’t, and you can’t take this massive victory away from Ares Vendetta! So many doubted him after he walked out without the Answers World Championship at Road To Redemption, but look at him now! He just beat a former two-time World Heavyweight Champion! I think he should be the next man in line to for a World Title shot, if you ask me!

Kawajai: I suppose we’ll have to wait and see on Voltage, but for now, I’ve got to give a huge ovation to these two competitors, and congratulations tonight to Ares Vendetta!

(Rook is shown dragging an unmoving Ares Vendetta from the ring and taking him away on his shoulder while Bishop stands by on the stage with Robbie V, placed back in his wheelchair)

Mack: I hope that man right there was watching closely too, because his son just outshined him in a big, bad way! And I’m sure there’s more outshining to come! Just you wait!

( Camera goes backstage and we see Tarah Nova, dressed in her ring gear, performing basic stretches to prepare herself for her match later on. She stretches both arms behind her back, but her attention is diverted off camera as a less-than-pleased look enters her face.. )

( Camera shifts a little, and Zach Genesis is seen standing in front of Tarah Nova. )

Zach Genesis: Hey, Tarah.

Tarah Nova: Zach.

Genesis: I, uhh… I just wanted to say good luck in your match tonight.

Tarah: You did?

Genesis: Yeah… I was also wondering.. well, me and The Iconomy were going to the KOE after party. Maybe you wanted to come along? If you weren’t doing anything, that is.

Tarah: Oh Zach… you’re going to just pretend everything’s fine between us and invite me to your little party?

Genesis: You’re still upset? Look I know we’re not together but we don’t need to pretend we’re mad at each other forever.

Tarah: Come on Zach, I could never be mad at anyone for so long. Eventually you just stop caring. But I can see that makes two of us. 🙂

Genesis: I still care.

Tarah: Well now THAT makes one of us.

Genesis: I know I made it seem like I didn’t before. But now that I’m back why can’t we just look past what happened and maybe give things another chance?

Tarah: I’m sorry Zach. I’m afraid I’m off the market.

Genesis: … Oh ….. (pause) … who is it?

( Tarah looks off-screen and smiles, and Genesis looks off-screen as well. )

( Mr. DEDEDE gingerly walks up to Tarah and kisses her while Zack Genesis looks on from the background in shock. )

Tarah: You okay babe?

DDD: I’ll live. I’m going to wash up and get out of here. I’ll probably be back at the hotel.

Tarah: Okay, see you there.

DDD: Alright. Good luck out there.

( DDD gives Tarah another kiss and gives Zach Genesis a nod and a slick grin before he gingerly walks off. Tarah gives Zach a look. )

Tarah: Well… good seeing you I guess.

( Tarah walks off, leaving Zach Genesis behind dumbfounded as the camera goes back to ringside. )

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen… this next match IS SCHEDULED FOR ONEE FALL!!!!!

(“Legend” – Drake hits as Thomas Minns makes his way through the curtain to a chorus of boos. The hint of a smile crosses his face as he stands on the ramp, soaking in everything around him before beginning to make his way down to the ring.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first from Seattle, Washington, weighing in tonight at 220 POOUUNNDSS!!! HE IS THE SELF PROFESSED “JAMES DEAN OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING”… THOOOOOOMMAAASSS MIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNSSSSSS!!!!!!

Mercer: Without question, tonight is the biggest night in the career of Thomas Minns. In the span of a few months, this man is gone from being at the bottom of the card; another name looking for an opportunity to make a name for himself, to a man that is squaring off against a former EAW Champion, in the form of Xavier Williams. If the man is able to walk out of tonight with another notch in the win column, a world of opportunities begin to fall at the feet of Thomas Minns.

Ryder: If there was any pressure on the shoulders of Thomas Minns coming into this match tonight, he’s not showing any signs of it in the slightest. Arrogance, confidence and bravado are the things that make this young man what he is today. You said it best, if he can win tonight, anything is possible for this young man. In an instant, Thomas Minns becomes one of the fastest rising stars in this company’s history.

(“House of Dreams” – Bliss N Eso hits as the crowd explodes with an explosive reaction as Xavier Williams makes his way through the curtain. Xavier stands on the stage and drops his head and begins to speak to himself, his words can’t be heard. Suddenly Xavier lets out a roar of emotion as he makes way down the ramp and to the ring.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing next from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in tonight at 216 POOOOUUNDSSS!!!! THE SELF PROFESSED “BEST WRESTLER IN THE WORLD”… XAAAAAVVVIIEEEERRR WILLLLLIIIIAAMMSSSS!!!!

Mercer: I said it a few weeks ago; I don’t believe I’ve ever seen Xavier Williams in the mindset he is now. We’ve seen this man go to war with the likes of Dark Demon, Zack Crash and Lucian Black in the past – times where Xavier Williams has shown more heart than some have given the man credit for, but this isn’t the same Xavier Williams that we’re used to seeing. Losing the EAW Championship in November; this whole ordeal with Thomas Minns – it’s done something to the man that I can’t explain.

Ryder: Through the things that we’ve seen the man do in the past, it’s a scary thought to think about the things that must be running through the mind of Xavier Williams, broski. The real question is that is this mindset going to cost Xavier Williams? Is the man going to be so focused on revenge that it going to cost him in the long run? This match is just a crucial for his career, as it is for Thomas Minns. This has been building for months; let’s get this thing started!

(Ding, Ding, Ding!)

Mercer: The bell rings and this match is now underway; the hint of a smile crossing the face of Xavier Williams as he takes a step forward. Thomas Minns remains unmoved in his corner, what has to be going through his mind now. Xavier Williams making his way to the middle of the ring as Thomas Minns finally takes a few steps forward and the two men come face to face – AND THOMAS MINNS HITS XAVIER WILLIAMS ACROSS THE FACE WITH AN OPEN HAND SLAP! If Xavier Williams wasn’t in a bad enough mood as it is… AND XAVIER WILLIAMS SWEEPS THE LEGS FROM UNDER THOMAS MINNS AND BEGINS TO FIRE AWAY AT THE HEAD AND FACE!! XAVIER WILLIAMS FIRING AWAY WITH THOSE CLOSE FISTED SHOTS AS THOMAS MINNS ATTEMPTS TO COVER UP!! THE REFEREE ATTEMPTS TO DRAG HIM AWAY, BUT XAVIER JUST PUSHES THE REFEREE AWAY!! XAVIER IS LUCKY THAT HE HASN’T GOTTEN HIMSELF DISQUALIFIED AS THE REFEREE TRIES TO DRAG HIM AWAY AGAIN AND THIS TIME XAVIER WILLIAMS RELENTS!! Xavier Williams rolling away as Thomas Minns tries the scramble back to his feet—BUT AS HE DOES XAVIER WILLIAMS HITS HIM STRAIGHT IN THE FACE AND CHEST WITH A VICIOUS KICK THAT ECHOES AROUND THE ARENA!! Thomas Minns stumbles back into the ropes as Xavier Williams bursts across the ring, looking to send Minns over the top! But, Minns drops the shoulder and sends Xavier Williams to the outside! Xavier’s able to catch himself on the apron as Thomas Minns shakes his head trying to shake out of the cobwebs.

Ryder: Thomas Minns doesn’t have the slightest clue that Xavier’s standing in wait. Minns finally turns around AS XAVIER WILLIAMS SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND HITS THOMAS MINNS IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH A KNEELIFT!! THOMAS MINNS JUST MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, CATCHING THE ARM OF XAVIER WILLIAMS!! THOMAS MINNS MANAGES THE GET BEHIND XAVIER WILLIAMS!! HE HAS HIM SET!! OH MY GOD!! SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE!! HE GOT HIM!! NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS BREAKS FREE AND SWITCHES IT ON THOMAS MINNS, LOCKING THE WAIST AND DRIVES HIM INTO THE CORNER!! XAVIER WILLIAMS ROLLING THROUGH, THE WAIST OF THOMAS MINNS STILL LOCKED!! CHAOS THEORY GERMAN SUPLEX!! XAVIER WILLIAMS HOLDING THE BRIDGE!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!… KICKOUT!!

Ryder: Minns kicks out, but Xavier Williams grip around the waist of Thomas Minns remains unbroken. Xavier Williams dragging Thomas Minns back up to his feet, looking to take him over for another German Suplex, but Thomas Minns fires back with an elbow to the side of the head!! And another!! Xavier Williams stunned, but his grip is still unbroken! Minns is able to turn it around, this time locking the waist of Xavier Williams! Xavier swings with an elbow of his own, but Minns ducks underneath AND CATCHES XAVIER WITH THE NORTHERN LIGHT SUPLEX!! Thomas Minns doesn’t hold the bridge, instead getting back to his feet! The hint of a smile crosses the face of Minns before he drops the knee across the bridge of the nose of Xavier Williams! Xavier Williams rolling under the bottom rope as Minns slowly stalks his prey. Xavier dragging himself back up as Minns lines him up! Xavier’s up as Minns charges forward AND DRIVES HIS FOREARM INTO THE HEAD OF XAVIER WILLIAMS!! NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS DROPS THE TOP ROPE SENDING THOMAS MINNS OVER THE TOP AND TO THE OUTSIDE!! MINNS SOMEHOW LANDS IN HIS FEET, BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE WITH THE ASAI MOONSAULT!! MINNS GETS OUT OF THE WAY, BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS’ IS NOW THE ONE WHO’S ABLE TO LAND OF HIS FEET!! Thomas Minns catches Xavier Williams with a stiff forearm as the referee begins to count!

ONE!!… TWO!!… THREE!!…

Mercer: Xavier Williams dropping down to a knee, but Thomas Minns quickly dragging Xavier back up, drives that shoulder under the ribs and sends him back into the edge of that ring apron! Xavier Williams screams out in pain as he clutches at his back; Xavier dropping down to his knees, but Thomas Minns doesn’t look to be interesting in giving the man any room to breathe. Minns dragging Xavier back up, drives the shoulder under the ribs of Xavier and drives him back into the ring apron again!

FOUR!!… FIVE!!…

Mercer: Xavier drops down to his hands and knees as Minns stalks before following it up with a hard kick to the ribs of the former EAW Champion. Thomas Minns taking complete control now; Minns dragging Xavier Williams back to his feet and rolls him back into the ring before getting back up onto the apron and beginning to make his way up top. Xavier pushes his way back to his feet – and Thomas Minns leaps from the top and connects with the Double Axe Handle! Xavier Williams drops back down to the canvas as Minns places the boot over the chest!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!… KICKOUT!!

Ryder: Xavier gets the shoulder up! You have to think that the arrogance of Thomas Minns may have just hurt him there, we’ve seen in the past, when you have a guy like Xavier Williams down you need to do whatever you can to put him away. Thomas Minns allowing Xavier Williams to push himself back to his feet; Xavier’s back up and is met by a stiff chop to the chest! Minns hits another as Xavier stumbles back into the corner – the chest of Xavier already beginning to welt. Minns holding nothing back with those chops! Another chop and another! Minns with a forearm to the jaw as Xavier Williams holds onto the top rope, quite possibly the one thing keeping the man upright. A huge smile crossing the face of Minns as he hits another forearm before nonchalantly walking away; it’s like the man doesn’t have a care in the world – AND MINNS CHARGES BACK AND CONNECTS WITH THAT JUMPING RUNNING CLOTHESLINE!! NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS BURSTS OUT OF THE CORNER AND ALMOST TAKES THOMAS MINNS’ HEAD OFF WITH A RUNNING SINGLE LEG DROPKICK!! THOMAS MINNS WAS TURNED INSIDE OUT!! Both men are down, a blank stare in the eyes of Minns as Xavier Williams drags himself back to a vertical base! Thomas Minns, stunned, stumbling back to his feet AND IS IMMEDIATELY HIT IN THE STOMACH WITH A SPINNING BACK KICK! SCISSORS STOMP! JUMPING KNEE TO THE JAW! AND FINALLY TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A WICKED LARIAT! A flurry of offense from the former EAW Champion; Thomas Minns may be out of it as Xavier Williams hits the ropes and drops the knee right across the bridge of the nose!

Mercer: Xavier hitting a second wind as Thomas Minns rolls into the corner; Xavier stalking at Minns uses the corner to pull himself back to his feet – AND THE MOMENT THAT HE GETS BACK TO VERTICAL BASE XAVIER WILLIAMS HITS HIM WITH A SICK YAKUZA KICK!! MINNS STUMBLING OUT OF THE CORNER, BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS DOESN’T ALLOW HIM TO FALL DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! XAVIER WILLIAMS PULLS HIM IN AND TAKES HIM OVER WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!! XAVIER WILLIAMS FLOATING BACK OVER; WE’VE SEEN HIM DO THIS A MILLION TIMES IN THE PAST!! XAVIER WILLIAMS DEADLIFTING THOMAS MINNS BACK INTO THE AIR!! SHEERDROP BRAINBUSTER!! NO, MINNS IS FIGHTING HIM – KNEES TO THE TOP OF THE HEAD OF XAVIER WILLIAMS!! THOMAS MINNS IS ABLE TO DROP BEHIND XAVIER WILLIAMS AND LOCKS THE WAIST!! GERMAN SUPLEX!! NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS USES HIS LEG TO BLOCK IT!! XAVIER DROPPING FORWARD SENDING MINNS OVERHEAD!! BOTH THOMAS MINNS AND XAVIER WILLIAMS SCRAMBLE BACK TO THEIR FEET!!

OH – OH MY GOD!! SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE!! MINNS HIT IT!! MINNS ROLLING XAVIER WILLIAMS OVER AND HOOKS THE LEG!!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!…. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mercer: HE GOT HIM!!

Ryder: NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS JUST GOT THE SHOULDER UP!! THOMAS MINNS IS IN COMPLETE DISBELIEF!! THAT HAD TO BE NOTHING BUT INSTINCT FROM THE FORMER EAW CHAMPION!! Minns getting back to his feet; that look of arrogance and confidence has been changed to one of determination. Minns may have just hit Xavier Williams with his best shot and it wasn’t enough to keep the man down; what has to be going through his mind at the moment? What does the man have to do to keep the man down? Minns demanding that the referee counts faster, almost adamant that it should have been three, but he needs to keep on top of Xavier; give him no room to breathe. Xavier Williams slowly pushing himself back to a vertical base, but I don’t think that he’s going to like what’s waiting for him. Minns has him locked completely in his sights; Xavier’s back to a knee AND THOMAS MINNS DRAGS HIM BACK TO HIS FEET, LOOKING FOR ANOTHER SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE!! IT CONNECTS!! ANOTHER SKULL CRUSHING FINAL— NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS FIGHTING IT!! XAVIER WILLIAMS SWINGS HIS HEAD BACK AND HITS A HEADBUTT STRAIGHT TO THE NOSE!! Minns releasing his grip and stumbles back into the ropes; Xavier Williams trying to shake out of the cobwebs, still obviously feeling the effects of that Sleepless in Seattle moments ago BUT AS SOON AS XAVIER TURNS BACK AROUND THOMAS MINNS ALMOST TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A LARIAT!! NO, XAVIER CAUGHT THE ARM AND USES THE MOMENTUM TO TAKE HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! MINNS IS TRAPPED!! FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! IT’S LOCKED IN – THE SAME MOVE THAT XAVIER WILLIAMS USED TO ELIMINATE THE HEART BREAK BOY INSIDE THAT ELIMINATION CHAMBER!!

Mercer: TAP OR HAVE YOUR ARM BROKEN; I THINK THAT MAY BE THE ONLY TWO OPTIONS FOR THOMAS MINNS AT THE MOMENT!! MINNS TRYING TO USE HIS FEET TO GET TO THE BOTTOM ROPE, BUT HE SEEMS TO BE A LITTLE TOO FAR AWAY!! MINNS TAPS!! NO, THOMAS MINNS JUST, JUST ABLE TO STOP HIMSELF!! MINNS IS… HE DID IT, MINNS JUST GETS THE TIP OF HIS BOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE AND XAVIER WILLIAMS IS FORCED TO RELEASE THE HOLD!! A HUGE AMOUNT OF HEART AND RESILIENCE SHOWN FROM THOMAS MINNS THERE AS XAVIER WILLIAMS LOOKS TO HAVE LOST IT!! XAVIER WILLIAMS DRAGGING THOMAS MINNS BACK OUT TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, LOOKING TO LOCK THAT FUJIWARA ARMBAR BACK IN, BUT MINNS IS FIGHTING IT – NOT ALLOWING XAVIER WILLIAMS TO HYPEREXTEND THAT ELBOW!! MINNS ABLE TO ROLL XAVIER BACK ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!!

XAVIER FIGHTS THROUGH IT POPPING MINNS OFF HIS SHOULDERS— OH MY GOD!! HANGMAN’S ELBOW!! XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH THAT VICIOUS HANGMAN’S ELBOW AS SOON AS MINNS LANDED ON HIS FEET!! MINNS HAS TO BE UNCONSCIOUS; XAVIER WILLIAMS PULLS ONE HELL OF A SHOT OUT OF DARK DEMON’S PLAYBOOK!!

THAT GROUNDED SUPERKICK CONNECTING FLUSH ON THE JAW OF THOMAS MINNS!! XAVIER WILLIAMS HOOKING BOTH LEGS!!!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!… THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Ding, Ding, Ding!)

(“House of Dreams” – Bliss N Eso hits as Xavier Williams rolls off Thomas Minns and slowly sits up.)

Ring Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…. XAAAAAAVVVIIIEEERRRR WILLIIIIAAAAMMMMMSSSS!!!!!

Mercer: It’s over! These two men have been at war for months and tonight, Xavier Williams ends it!

(Xavier Williams gets back to his feet before making his way over to the corner and making his way up to the middle rope.)

Ryder: Credit has to go to Thomas Minns, the man gave Xavier Williams more than I’m sure more people thought he would. Even in defeat, tonight, Thomas Minns proved that his future is in fact a bright one.

Mercer: Without question, but as one door closes, another one is sure to open. What’s next for these two men? To answer that question, we must wait until Showdown.

(Xavier Williams stands on the middle rope looking out at the thousands in attendance as the hint of a smile crosses his face before the camera fades backstage.)

( Camera pans backstage where Pierre McGuire is seen standing by… )

Pierre: Ladies and gentlemen… my Guest… at THIS time… the 2015 King of Elite Winner, the man who will be challenging Jamie O’Hara later tonight… I guess with King Diemos, we call you… Just Lannister?

( Lannister and Athena appear into the screen. )

Lannister: This “King Diemos” is a false identity, and a poor man to fit such an honorable crown. Lannister will not call him King… For he is nothing. At least Lucian Black or Aren Mstislav have earned that right to be Lannister’s heir. And he’ll continue to be nothing.

Pierre: Are you suggesting–

Lannister: Lannister is suggesting, that there will not be another reign, like that of Lannister’s. But how fortunate of Lannister, to turn his reign, into another. Lannister faces Jamie O tonight, and he’ll conquer another world. He ruled EAW as a monarch, and now he’ll rule as a champion. This is not —

( Lannister stops in his tracks, as a mysterious, unfamiliar man approaches the scene. )

???: A gift. From afar. Use it wisely.

( The man bows, extending his hands out, as Athena hesitantly accepts, looking at Lannister, as the “gift” appears to be lighter fluid. )

Lannister: And who does Lannister owe the honor or thanking?

???: I’m just the messenger. And have been told to tell you, let’s just say, an old “friend”.

( The man walks off, as Athena and Lannister look on confused, before fading back to the screen. )

( The camera pans to ringside where we see ring-crew workers unscrewing the ring ropes as a steel cage is lowered down to the ring )

( A promo video plays on the screen: first documenting Triple Threat with the return of Dark Demon destroying Scott Diamond to help Cameron Ella Ava, flashing to Pain for Pride with Demon capturing the Hall of Fame title in dominant fashion by pinning HBB, along with the debut of Mexican Samurai on Showdown and putting in impressive performances. The video now flashes to Dark Demon brutally injuring HBB at Mid-Summer Massacre and taking out Diamond Cages wife, Brittany Cage, at Territorial Invasion along with the start of the Mexican Samurai/Pizza Boy feud. The camera flashes to Showdown: Redemption with Dark Demon retaining his HOF title against Diamond Cage in a Cage of Death along with Mexican Samurai ‘quitting’ against Pizza Boy after brutally destroying Pizza Boy. The video now fades to the next Showdown with Mexican Samurai challenging Dark Demon to a match and wanting the fame that comes with being the first to defeat Dark Demon since 2014, showing Demon and Samurai being forced to team by James Shields and beating MX-13 and Stand & Deliver despite Demon walking out, Demon elbowing Samurai to cost them the semi-finals and then to Road to Redemption with Samurai being the first to start to dominant Demon but Demon taking him out with a Railroad Spike. The video shows Demon mocking Samurai and starting the HOF title open challenges against the most ridiculous of opponents, with Samurai returning and injuring Bryce Dean and the debut of Mexican Samurai’s father, Goro, who pleads with Demon to end the war but Demon wiping out Goro. Samurai’s sit-down interview with Matt Ryder and Bryce Dean’s restraining order against Samurai to James Shield wanting to ‘end the conflict’ by announcing an MMA match )

( ‘’Long Distance’’ by Sam Gallaitry plays throughout the arena as the camera pans backstage to see Mexican Samurai walking through the backstage area, wearing MMA attire with blue gloves, shadow-punching as he makes his way past the curtain with Goro by his side )

Matt Ryder: Here we go …Mexican Samurai is walking into easily the biggest match of his career right here. This young man has wanted Dark Demon since November, two and a half months ago. He’s gone through a lot to get to this point, he had to spend Christmas, New Year, in the hospital and then to see his father, a retired wrestler, get beaten to a pulp by Dark Demon. This feud has turned from one where Mexican Samurai was focused on getting enough money so he could leave this business without any major injuries like many veterans of the game do to entering a blood feud with the Hall of Fame Champion.

Jake Mercer: Mexican Samurai is well versed in Mixed-Martial Arts though, he’s got a good ground game, good striking, the only problem is …so does Dark Demon. He needs to stay focused here and stay disciplined if he wants to win this fight, he can’t let his emotions get the best of him.

( ‘’Foggy Dew’’ by Sinead O’Conor plays as Dark Demon can be seen walking through the backstage area wearing green and gold trunks with the Hall of Fame title around his waist and an Irish flag over his shoulders )

Matt Ryder: And arguably right now, the most dominant star in EAW. Dark Demon has OFFICIALLY tied Cameron Ella Ava for longest Hall of Fame title reign, which regardless of tonight’s result WILL be broken. Demon seems to be looking past Mexican Samurai already, as next month Reasonable Doubt will be hosted in Dublin, Ireland and Demon has already began calling out the EAW Champion, Jamie O’Hara.

Jake Mercer: Can you blame him?! He’s gonna defeat this bum tonight, than he’s heading into his home country and he’s going to win the EAW Championship. It doesn’t matter who wins tonight, whether it’s Jamie O’Hara or Lannister, they’re going to have to face the Greatest of All Time for their championship. Personally, I cannot wait to see Demon holding TWO titles at the same time! What an amazing, fighting champion he’d be …

Matt Ryder: Tell me you’re joking …

Jake Mercer: Name one other champion in EAW today that puts his title on the line every week like Dark Demon does? He defeated Jesus and ISIS, for Christ sakes!

Matt Ryder: And now for the introductions, we take it to MMA announcing legend, Bruce Buffer!

( Camera pans to Bruce Buffer standing inside the cage )

Bruce Buffer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following is a cage match contested under MMA rules as this fight will have three ‘five minute rounds’. The official rules for this match are as follows: You can only win by Knockout, Submission or Judges decision. In the event of a Judge’s decision if there is no winner by the end of three rounds, the judges will use the 10 POINT MUST SYSTEM. The Judges will score the winner of each round 10 points and the loser 9 points or fewer, winners will based on cage control, aggression and effective striking and grappling.

Bruce Buffer: AND NOW! The moment fight fans around the world have been waiting for …IT’SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! In this corner, he is fighting out of San Jose, CA, he is weighing in at 210 pounds and standing in at 5 feet, 10 inches tall He is ‘’THE NEO SCAVENGER’ MEXIIICAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNN SAMMMMMURAIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bruce Buffer: AND IN THIS CORNER …He is fighting out of Galway, Ireland, he weighs in at 177 pounds and standing in at 5 feet, 11 inches tall …HE IS THE REIGNING! UNDISPUTED! EAW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION ….’ THE NOTORIOUS’ ……DAAAAAAAARKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK DEMOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!

( The referee brings Demon and Mexican Samurai to the middle of the ring to go over the rules and offering them to touch gloves in respect but Demon flips off Samurai while getting right in his face trash talking him before they are separated to their corners )

( Ding! Ding! Ding! )

Matt Ryder: AND DEMON IMMEDIATELY CHARGES OUT OF HIS CORNER TOWARDS SAMURAI! SPINNING HEEL HOOK BY DEMON! BUT SAMARUI EVADES IT! Samurai stepping backwards as Demon is quickly putting pressure on him by cutting off the cage and forcing Samurai into a corner and throws a jab at Samurai but Samurai ducks it and SAMURAI SHOOTS FOR THE TAKEDOWN! SAMURAI LIFTS DEMON UP INTO THE AIR AND SLAMS HIM DOWN! HUGE TAKEDOWN BY SAMURAI! Samurai is now in Demon’s guard as Demon is throwing jabs right at Samurai! BUT SAMURAI RESPONDS WITH A HUGE ELBOW ACROSS THE FACE OF DEMON! AND HUGE ELBOW BY MEXICAN SAMURAI ACROSS DEMONS FACE! BUT DEMON THROWS ANOTHER PUNCH AT MEXICAN SAMURAI’S FACE! SAMURAI HAS THE ADVANTAGE ON TOP OF DEMON BUT DEMON HAS HIS LEGS AROUND HIS WAIST IN THE GUARD …Mexican Samurai though moves out of Demon’s guard and into a side guard as he’s looking for a submi —no! Demon spins out of it and gets back to his feet as does Mexican Samurai but Demon is hurt by those elbows to the face, he has cut right above his eye here …

Jake Mercer: But Samurai isn’t letting up! Samurai marching forward on Mexican Samurai but Demon with another jab at Samurai! But Samurai responds with a leg kick to Demon, Demon keeps moving around and trying to create distance from Samurai who isn’t letting him as he’s essentially cut the ring in half, putting pressure on Demon but Demon THROWS A HUGE LEFT HOOK TOWARDS SAMURAI! HE TAGGED HIM! SAMURAI GOES DOWN! SAMURAI GOES DOWN AS DEMON QUICKLY FOLLOWS AND POUNCES, THROWING ANOTHER PUNCH AT THE FALLEN SAMURAI! SAMURAI IS DOWN AND DEMON IS THROWING MORE PUNCHES AS SAMURAI IS COVERING HIMSELF, SAMURAI NEEDS TO INTELLIGENTLY DEFEND HIMSELF HERE OR THE REFEREE COULD END THIS! Samurai is trying to lift himself up as Demon is throwing fists at him but Samurai is half-way up and GETS A SECOND TAKEDOWN ON DARK DEMON! SAMURAI OUT OF DESPERATION GETS A SECOND TAKEDOWN ON DARK DEMON! But Samurai isn’t able to capitalize on it as Demon gets right back to his feet as Mexican Samurai is lifting himself up to his feet as well …

Matt Ryder: Samurai is clearly rattled by that huge haymaker by Dark Demon as Samurai still has his hands up in a southpaw stance as does Demon, both men waiting for an opening here as Demon throws another jab but Mexican Samurai avoids it …and Samurai CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING HEEL HOOK TO THE STOMACH OF DEMON! Demon stumbles and drops to a knee as Samurai charges looking for a RUNNING KNEE TO THE HEAD OF DEMON! Demon ducks out of the way! Demon gets to his feet but he’s breathing heavy here, that took the wind right out of him and Samurai knows it …Samurai throws another leg kick and connects with a jab to the mid-section of Demon who’s backed up by that cage! Demon is trapped and breathing heavy as Samurai KNEE TO THE CHEST! NO! DEMON SIDE-STEPS IT AND ROCKS SAMURAI WITH A JAB TO THE HEAD! SAMURAI REPLIES WITH A JAB OF HIS OWN TO THE HEAD OF DEMON! BOTH MEN EXCHANGING JABS HERE BY THE CORNER OF THE CAGE! BOTH MEN UNLOADING ON EACH OTHER!

Jake Mercer: SAMURAI GRABS DEMON INTO A CLUTCH AND THROWS HIM RIGHT DOWN ONTO THE MAT! A THIRD SUCCESSIVE TAKEDOWN FOR MEXICAN SAMURAI IN THE FIRST ROUND!

{{ BUZZ ]]

Jake Mercer: AND HERE WE GO! Both men a little more sluggish to begin this round than the first one, they’re clearly hurt here ….And Demon throws the first jab at Samurai!

Jake Mercer: SAMURAI HAS DONE IT! BAH GAWD ALMIGHTY! WHAT A WAR!

Matt Ryder: I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! MEXICAN SAMURAI HAS DEFEATED DARK DEMON!!

( Samurai rolls out of the ring as the cage is risen. Replays of crucial moments from the match are shown, including heavy strikes, near submissions and avoided kicks. It highlights the finish of the match, showing again Demon succumbing to the choke. )

( Commercial break – REASONABLE DOUBT: THE MONSTER THAT YOU MADE NEXT MONTH )

( Camera pans backstage to Dark Demon in his locker room as Bryce Dean is wiping the blood from him )

Bryce Dean: You’ll be fine.

Dark Demon: …

Bryce Dean: You still have the title.

Dark Demon: ….

Bryce Dean: You’re still next in line to face Jamie.

Dark Demon: …

( Xavier Williams walks into the room, smirking )

Xavier Williams: What did you say last month? I failed you for the final time? Looks like YOU failed me, again.

( Dark Demon stands up, still bloody as Xavier smirks )

Xavier Williams: Don’t worry, I don’t need to beat you again, but that title shot? It’s mine.

( Xavier Williams walks off as Demon looks angry )

( The camera cuts to the ring where the Ring Announcer is standing by with a mic in hand. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Ring Announcer: This match is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first…

( “Trap Queen” by Fetty Wap blasts through the speakers. The crowd immediately lets out a roar of boos echoing throughout the entire arena. Madison Kaline steps out onto the stage and walks down the ramp. She slides into the ring and climbs to the top of a turnbuckle. Madison holds her arm up with her fist clenched as the boos continue. )

Ring Announcer: Weighing in at one hundred and twenty five pounds… From Tampa Bay, Florida… “The Mistress of Death”… MADDIIIISSONNNNNNN KALLLLINNNNEEEEEEEE!!!!

Matt Ryder: Last week Madison made an example of Tarah after what she had done to her the week before. She not only got the confidence boost she needed coming into this match, but she made it quite clear what she plans on doing to her tonight, broski!

Jake Mercer: If you believe Tarah is just going to LET Madison do her like she did last week tonight then you are highly mistaken. Tarah Nova is a fighting Vixen and she will do anything to make sure her opponent stays down. These two have been feuding for quite some time now and I’m sure Tarah knows what’s at stake here.

( Madison jumps off the turnbuckle and stands in the ring, keeping her eyes locked on the stage as “Trap Queen” fades out… )

Ring Announcer: And her opponent…

( “Boss’s Daughter” by Pop Evil blasts through the speakers and fills the arena. Boo’s echo all throughout the arena. Tarah Nova runs out to the stage when she stops at the top of the ramp. She bends back and screams then runs down to the ring. Tarah slides into the ring and stares at Maddie. She gets in her face then bends back and screams again. )

Jake Mercer: HOLY CRAP MADDIE JUST TACKLES TARAH TO THE FLOOR AND NOW SHE’S UNLOADING STRIKES AFTER MOUNTING ON TOP OF HER! THIS MATCH HAS STARTED!

( DING! DING! DING! )

Matt Ryder: Bro, you can tell these two have bad blood and Tarah just completely pushes Maddie off of her! Maddie jumps right back on her and starts unloading again! Tarah blocks a punch and rolls Maddie over! Now Tarah is on top of her! Tarah grabs Maddie’s head and slams it on the mat! And again! Tarah is just repeatedly slamming her head into the mat! Tarah unmounts and pulls Maddie to her feet, then whips her into the ropes. Maddie rebounds and is coming back to Tarah… TARAH WITH A FRONT DROPKICK TO MADDIE’S GUT! MADDIE’S BODY JUST FOLDED FORWARD WITH THAT DROPKICK! Maddie is now laid out next to the ropes as Tarah bounces off the ropes and charges right to Maddie! SHE JUST USED EVERYTHING SHE HAD TO DROPKICK MADDIE OUT OF THE RING! MADDIE GETS SENT RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR TABLE!

Jake Mercer: This match is getting taken out of the ring! Tarah looks at Maddie who is hurting, but slowly getting to her feet.

MADDIE ROLLS OFF THE TABLE AND TARAH IS SENT STRAIGHT THROUGH THE TABLE! Dear God what a bad crash! Maddie needs to get back in the ring before they both get counted out! She’s getting back to her feet while Tarah is still laid out in the broken Dynasty table! Maddie gets to her feet and stumbles to the ring! She slides in, but slides back out! IS SHE OUT OF HER MIND SHE COULD’VE HAD THIS ENDED! The ref restarts the count again!

Ref: ONEEE!!

Jake Mercer: Maddie grabs a hold of Tarah and throws her against the ring on the outside! She bends her body back and connects a back body chop and you could hear that throughout the entire arena!

Ref: TWO!!

Matt Ryder: She picks Tarah up with both hands pressed against her chest and stomach… AND SHE TOSSES HER STRAIGHT ONTO THE STEEL STEPS! Tarah’s body is just laid out on the steel steps now!

SHE PULLS TARAH’S BODY BACK AND SHE’S GOT THE DRAGON SLEEPER LOCKED IN! TARAH IS SCREAMING RIGHT NOW TRYING TO GET OUT OF THIS! SHE HITS AN ELBOW ON MADDIE! AND ANOTHER ONE! ANOTHER ONE! MADDIE FALLS OFF OF TARAH’S BACK AND HOLDS HER JAW! Tarah climbs to the ropes, giving herself leverage. Maddie gets back to her feet and charges right at Tarah! TARAH PULLS THE ROPE DOWN AND MADDIE IS SENT OUT OF THE RING! WAIT NO SHE HOLDS ON TO THE ROPES TO PREVENt FROM LANDING OUTSIDE! Tarah turns around and Maddie throws a shot at her! TARAH BLOCKS IT AND WHOA! SHE JUST HIT THE LUCKY 13 ON MADDIE! THE SUPERKICK SENDS MADDIE COLLAPSING OUTSIDE THE RING!

Jake Mercer: Tarah after a moment of gloating rolls out of the ring and goes right after Maddie! She grabs her hair and pulls her up! ….

What is Maddie doing now… She’s crawling under the ring… Tarah is still knocked out and… WHAT IS THAT?! MADDIE CRAWLS BACK OUT OF THE RING… SHE’S GOT STRANDS OF BARBED WIRE!

( AD: Commercial for the upcoming VIXENS-EXCLUSIVE SUPERSHOW rolls as “Diamonds” by Our Last Night plays on the commercial. )

Narrator: For the first time ever, EAW presents a TWO DAY VIXENS-EXCLUSIVE SUPERSHOW! Witness the EAW Vixens do battle in a two day long tournament for the fist ever EAW VIXENS CUP! LIVE on Saturday March 12th, and Sunday March 13th, from the EAW Network! Details and location coming soon…

( AD CLOSES )

( The lights in the arena dim, as focus is turned to the titantron. The song “Broken Crown” begins, as highlights of Lannister winning the 2015 King of Elite, and Jamie O’Hara winning the 2015 Cash in the Vault commences. Eventually those highlights turn into matches amongst themselves, from 2014, then fast forwards to O’Hara winning the EAW Championship at the SD Supershow. The last highlight showcases Lannister and O’Hara brawling from this past week… before finally fading back to the arena… )

Ryder: IS IT TIME?! EAW CHAMPIONSHIP TIME?!

Ring Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS YOUR MAINEVENT! AND IT IS FOR… THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP!!! AND IT IS… A LAST… MAN… STANDING!!!

( “Lydia” by Highly Suspect echoes around the arena… As Lannister and Athena emerge from the curtain. No robes, no crown, just lighter fluid in Athena’s hand. Lannister, in a more serious state than usual, no spectacle, no showcasing… just simply marches to the ring, as his new theme music plays. )

RA: Introducing first… from Dortmund, Germany… weighing in at 251 pounds… he is the ANGEL of DEBT… The STAR of the MOURNING… and OFFICIALLY cashing in his championship opportunity from winning the 2015 King of Elite Tournament… DASSSSSSSSSSS LANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIIISSSSSSTTTTTTEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!

Mercer: The official end of King Lannister, it seems. New theme, new attitude. I might be more inclined to cheer on this Lannister tonight, now that he doesn’t go around parading himself about the dramatics of being King. But he sure as hell has a lot to lose here tonight, all the same. Tonight is the night, that makes his year-long reign as King of Elite worth it or not. But can he do it? Is Jamie O’Hara a name he can conquer, like he has done with Norman Hellion, Ares Vendetta, Matt Miles? Will O’Hara become just another name on Lannister’s list, on his quest to EAW Champion?

Ryder: And that’s STILL King Lannister, in my eyes! Who are you to deny the importance of his reign? And who are you, to say it is Lannister that has everything to lose. He has only to gain. Lannister has made reference to it all week long, in all of their matches against one another, that Lannister has won them ALL. In O’Hara’s debut match. Eliminating O’Hara in the Elimination Chamber in 2014 Road to Redemption. Eliminating Jamie O’Hara in the Voltage Finals for the 2015 King of Elite tournament. Even in tag team action, Lannister has reigned supreme. And tonight will be different, why? That is question to be answered tonight, not the other way around.

Mercer: I am rather suspicious of who “gifted” that lighter fluid to House Lannister. Whoever it was, obviously has no good intentions at all. For the sake of these men’s bodies… it better not be used. A Last Man Standing match is hellacious enough…

( Trivium – “The Darkness of My Mind” echoes, as the crowd JUMPS to their feet at the sight of Jamie O’Hara, with the EAW Championship on his waists. He awaits on top of the entrance ramp, as he unstraps the EAW Championship, kissing the center of the belt, and holding it over his head as he walks down the ramp, not losing sight of Lannister every step of the way… )

RA: And his opponent… from Sydney, Australia… weighing in at 215 pounds… he is TOMORROW’S LEGEND… The LIGHT in the DARKNESS… THE REIGNING EAW CHAMPION… JAMIE O’HARA!!!!!!!!

Mercer: NOW this is the sight of a champion, the sight of will and determination. Jamie O’Hara is the epitome of all that. People will be quick to point out the size difference, the 0-for record against Lannister. But you don’t think this man is aware of those shortcomings, and that it doesn’t drive him even further? I am willing to bet, that Jamie O’Hara is the only man in a long time, to look FORWARD to facing the German brute. Jamie has something to prove to HIMSELF, to Lannister, to ALL of EAW here tonight, and that my friends, is a dangerous recipe for the challenger.

Ryder: It might be so, motivation is a quality that cannot be accessed or accounted for when predicting the finish. But at the end of the day, as the old adage goes, be careful what you wish for. If he wanted Lannister… HE HAS HIM. But you knock on the devil’s door, eventually somebody’s going to answer you. We’ll see if O’Hara is ready to meet who is on the otherside of that door. And we shall see… if he can be… THE LAST… MAN… STANDING from it all. HERE WE GO! BOTH MEN ARE IN THE RING! THE REFEREE HAS DONE HIS DUE DILIGENCE… AND WE’RE OFF!

( DING! DING! DING! )

Jake Mercer: LANNISTER WASTING NO TIME— BURSTING STRAIGHT OUT OF HIS CORNER AT JAMIE O’HARA! O’HARA COMES SPRINTING AT LANNISTER AS WELL, BUT LANNISTER TAKES JAMIE DOWN WITH A DECAPITATING CLOTHESLINE! JAMIE PUSHES HIMSELF BACK TO HIS FEET, ONLY TO BE TAKEN DOWN BY ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE! JAMIE SENT FLYING BACK DOWN TO THE MAT, BUT HE’S NOT STAYING DOWN! HE PUSHES HIMSELF BACK UP, AND LANNISTER RUNS OFF THE ROPES… JAMIE RUNNING FULL SPEED AT HIM AGAIN! AND JAMIE EATS THE BOTTOM OF LANNISTER’S BOOT, AS LANNISTER NEARLY TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A HUGE BIG BOOT! Lannister is coming into this match STRONGLY, I may have never seen him so DETERMINED TO WIN!

Matt Ryder: Jamie didn’t know what he got himself into with this match… LANNISTER IS A BEAST! HE’S A MONSTER! HE’S AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE THAT WILL NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY! AND LANNISTER GO STRAIGHT BACK INTO THE ATTACK, DRIVING HIS KNEES REPEATEDLY INTO THE SPINE OF O’HARA! AND LANNISTER… EFFORTLESSLY LIFTS O’HARA BY THE WAIST, AND SENDS JAMIE O’HARA FLYING BACKWARDS WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! Lannister is not messing around, he’s not toying with O’Hara, he knows what’s up for grabs in this match! He knows he has to be at his best to become the EAW Champion!

Jake Mercer: Don’t underestimate O’Hara quite yet, Ryder… Lannister stalks down O’Hara, as O’Hara is leaned against the ropes, using his right hand to pull himself up using the middle rope, to a knee— AND LANNISTER SPRINTS AT HIM! AND LANNISTER KNEE COLLIDES WITH THE TEMPLE OF JAMIE O’HARA, AND O’HARA FALLS THROUGH THE BOTTOM ROPE AND ONTO THE ARENA FLOOR! Lannister quickly follows him to the outside, by sliding underneath the ropes! And Lannister is now looking underneath the ring for some sort of object to use at his advantage! HERE WE GO! SHIELD YOUR KID’S EYES, WE’RE ABOUT TO RELIVE THE DAYS OF EXTREME!

Matt Ryder: And what is Lannister searching for? What is going to satisfy our king’s needs— HE PULLS OUT A GLASS TABLE! BUT O’HARA MEETS LANNISTER WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK TO THE SHOULDER AFTER LANNISTER GETS THE GLASS TABLE OUTSIDE FROM UNDER THE RING! Lannister goes shoulder first onto the floor, and now Jamie sets his eyes upon the glass table! Don’t you dare touch that table! That’s Lannister’s table, NOT YOURS YOU THIEF! AND JAMIE PICKS UP THE TABLE AND SETS IT UP ON THE OUTSIDE! And Jamie O’Hara turns around immediately to a Lannister who’s already on his feet! AND JAMIE DELIVERS A STRONG SNAP KICK TO THE CHEST!

Jake Mercer: THERE’S ANOTHER SNAP KICK! AND ANOTHER! THOSE SNAP KICKS SLAMMING OFF THE FLESH OF LANNISTER’S CHEST! HE’S REDDENING LANNISTER’S CHEST WITH THOSE WILD KICKS! AND JAMIE PULLS LANNISTER IN, LOOKING FOR A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX— BUT LANNISTER RESPONDS WITH MULTIPLE HEADBUTTS TO THE FOREHEAD! REFUSING TO BE LIFTED, BUT JAMIE! JAMIE STARTS RETALIATING WITH HEADBUTTS OF HIS OWN! ONE! TWO! THERE’S ONE FROM LANNISTER! AND ANOTHER! WHICH ONE IS GOING TO CAVE?

Matt Ryder: These two are literally butting heads, broski! Get it?! And Jamie seems to be getting the upperhand here, AND HE’S SETTING HIMSELF UP TO WHERE HE’S POSITIONED BEHIND THE GLASS TABLE! THIS ISN’T GOING TO BE GOOD! OH MY GOOOOOOD! JAMIE… JAMIE JUST FLIPPED LANNISTER OVERHEAD, PERFORMING A VIOLENT RELEASE BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX THROUGH THAT GLASS TABLE! HOLY SHIT, MOTHER MERCY LANNISTER’S BODY IS FILLED WITH SHARDS OF GLASS, PEELING AWAY THE DAMNED SKIN!! AND JAMIE ISN’T FINISHED, HE’S FAR FROM BEING DONE! AND JAMIE JUMPS TO HIS FEET, SPRINTING AT LANNISTER WHO’S LYING IN SHARDS OF GLASS— AND KICKS HIS THE SIDE OF HIS RIB SO VICIOUSLY, THAT LANNISTER FLIPS TO HIS STOMACH, ROLLING IN THE SHARDS OF GLASS! CUTTING INTO HIS FLESH EVEN MORE!

Jake Mercer: JAMIE THEN KNEELS NEXT TO LANNISTER… GRIPPING THE BACK OF HIS SKULL! FORCING HIS FACE INTO THE GLASS SHARDS, DEAR GOODNESS THE INHUMANITY! AND JAMIE PUTS A WHOLE LOT OF PRESSURE ON THE BACK OF LANNISTER’S HEAD, AND STARTS RUBBING HIS FACE INTO THE GLASS SHARDS! THE SKIN CONTINUES TO PEEL, AND BLOOD IS TRICKLING FROM DIFFERENT PLACES OF LANNISTER’S FACE! I’VE NEVER SEEN LANNISTER THIS DOMINATED BEFORE! Jamie finally let’s up, but he’s left behind a whole lot of damage to Lannister’s face! Athena looks on frantically, looking worried as ever for her beloved Lannister!

Matt Ryder: And if I were her, I wouldn’t get anywhere near Jamie O’Hara right now! That’s unless she’s signing her own personal death note! The referee, who’s now made his way to the outside area, begins to start the count on Lannister— BUT JAMIE STOPS HIM?

Jamie O’Hara: (shouting at the referee) I’M NOT DONE WITH HIM!

Matt Ryder: Jamie’s looking more sadistic than I’ve ever seen him be! He sets his sights on the Voltage announce table! Jamie marches over to the announce table, and RIPS THE PADDING RIGHT OFF! MY GOODNESS, THIS ISN’T SPELLING GOOD NEWS FOR THE CHALLENGER. And one by one, he pulls out the monitors, throwing them to the side! Jamie then turns himself back to Lannister, who’s on his hands and knees, and little trickles of blood dripping down his face! Jamie grabs him firmly by the head, lifting his body back to a vertical stance! And drags him over to the announce table— SMASHING HIS HEAD RIGHT INTO IT! OVER! AND OVER! AND OVER! HE’S ABSOLUTELY RELENTLESS!

Jake Mercer: I don’t like where this is heading, Jamie now lifting and rolling Lannister onto the announce table! And Jamie hops up onto the table alongside him, and begins to lift his weight up — bringing Lannister back to his feet! OH NO! OH DEAR… JAMIE SHIFTS HIMSELF BEHIND LANNISTER, POSITIONING HIMSELF TO SET UP THE DRAGON SUPLEX! HE HAS THE ARMS LOCKED! AND HE LIFTS— NO! NO! LANNISTER STARTS RAMMING THE BACK OF HIS HEAD INTO JAMIE’S FACE! ONE SHOT AFTER ANOTHER! THE BACK OF LANNISTER’S SKULL COLLIDES WITH THE NOSE, FOREHEAD, EVERYTHING VULNERABLE ON JAMIE’S FACE!

Matt Ryder: And Jamie is FORCED to release the grip he has on Lannister— AND LANNISTER TURNS AROUND! AND LANNISTER DRIVES HIS KNEE INTO JAMIE’S STOMACH! THEN LIFTING HIS BODY ONTO HIS SHOULDERS INTO THE FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION! CAN HE BE THINKING? IS HE THINKING? HE IS! HE IS! HE IS! AND WHO ARE YOU, JAMIE? THE RAINS OF CASTAMERE! THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER OFF OF THE ANNOUNCE TABLE, AND JAMIE’S BODY SLAMS SO HARD INTO THE GROUND! I BET YOU COULD HEAR THE THUD OFF THAT IMPACT EVEN IN THE CHEAP SEATS! Lannister pushes himself back to his feet, but you can see the anger in his scraped face! He’s pulling the shards out of his skin, shouting at Jamie as he’s squirming in pain below him!

Jake Mercer: Lannister looks down at Jamie, wiping the blood off of his face… AND IT ONLY SEEMS TO DRIVE LANNISTER MORE MAD! HE TOWERS OVER JAMIE, CRACKING HIS NECK TO THE LEFT! THEN TO THE RIGHT! AND HE GRIPS HIM BY BOTH LEGS! OH, I KNOW WHAT WE’RE ABOUT TO WITNESS! THE SWING! THE SWING! LANNISTER STARTS SWIRLING AROUND IN CIRCLES— BUT DEAR DOG! O’HARA’S HEAD SMASHES OFF OF THE BARRICADE THE FIRST TIME AROUND! AND THEN COLLIDES OFF THE APRON! HIS HEAD MAKING HUGE THUD NOISES AS THEY BOB OFF SAID OBJECTS! AND LANNISTER SWINGS HIM RIGHT INTO THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! O’HARA IS GOING TO HAVE HEADACHES FOR DAYS! AND LANNISTER SWINGS HIM INTO THE RING POST! MY GOODNESS! JAMIE’S HEAD, THE DAMNED TRAUMA, MY GOODNESS, AS HE LANDS ON THE STEEL STEPS! LANNISTER HAS HAD ENOUGH, AND HE SEEMS QUITE SATISFIED WITH THE RESULTS! AS JAMIE JUST LAYS THERE, UNCONSCIOUS-LIKE! AND LANNISTER SCREAMS AT THE REFEREE, TO COUNT! HE WANTS THIS MATCH OVER WITH!

Referee: ONEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOO!!!… THREEEEEE!!!!… JAMIE IS SLOWLY SHOWING MOVEMENT… FOUR!!!! FIV—

Matt Ryder: AND JAMIE LEAPS TO MEET LANNISTER! BUT HE SEEMS QUITE DAZED, SWINGING AND MISSING, AS LANNISTER JUST LETS HIM FALL TO HIS KNEES! LANNISTER PROMPTLY RIPS JAMIE FROM HIS POSITIONING, SENDING HIM INTO THE RING APRON! JAMIE GOES SPINE FIRST INTO THE RING APRON! AND LANNISTER TOSSED HIM SO HARD, IT LOOKS LIKE JAMIE BROKE HIS DAMN BACK! AND LANNISTER GRABS HIM AGAIN— TOSSING HIM INTO THE RING APRON ONCE MORE! AND THEN LANNISTER BEGINS THRUSTING HIS SHOULDER REPEATEDLY INTO HIS RIBS! AND GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD, TOSSING HIM INTO THE RING! BUT LANNISTER… LANNISTER ISN’T COMING ALONE! LANNISTER LOOKS UNDERNEATH THE RING— AND PULLS OUT WHAT SEEMS TO BE A TWELVE FOOT LADDER! HE SLIDES ONE EDGE ONTO THE BARRICADE… AND THE OTHER BELOW THE BOTTOM ROPE ONTO THE APRON! LANNISTER WITH EVIL INTENTIONS HERE, HE ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING! TOWERING OVER JAMIE O’HARA, WHO’S BARELY EVEN MADE TO HIS ONE KNEE! BUT JAMIE, WHAT? JAMIE… JAMIE PUSHES HIMSELF OFF THE CANVAS, AND MEETS LANNISTER WITH A PELE KICK TO THE HEAD! THAT ONE IS JUST ENOUGH TO SEND LANNISTER BACKWARDS! Jamie slowly pushes himself back to his feet, and Lannister rushes at him! AND LANNISTER IS MET WITH A DROPKICK TO THE CHEST! AND HE’S SENT TO THE ROPES WHERE THE LADDER IS SET UP ONTO THE OUTSIDE!

Jake Mercer: AND JAMIE IS UP ONCE MORE— HE GOES RUNNING AT LANNISTER FULL SPEED! AND JAMIE SPINS MID-WAY, DISCUS ELBOW SMASH CONNECTS WITH LANNISTER! MY GOODNESS, THE VICIOUS INTENTS WITH THAT! THAT SENDS LANNISTER FLIPPING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND LANDING SPINE FIRST ONTO THE LADDER! AND JAMIE DOESN’T TAKE A BREAK, JAMIE IS PROVING WHY HE’S THE EAW CHAMPION! HE’S LOOKING TO LANNISTER… THEN HE’S LOOKING BACK AT THE ROPES! JAMIE GOES RUNNING OFF THE ROPES! HE COMES REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES! AND HE LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE, SPRINGBOARD SERENADE OF ECSTASY! THE SPRINGBOARD FROG SPLASH CONNECTS, AND IT SENDS BOTH LANNISTER AND JAMIE O’HARA THROUGH THE LADDER! IT BREAKS THE LADDER IN HALF! AND NEITHER OF THEM ARE MOVING AN INCH! NEITHER OF THEM APPEAR TO BE SHOWING LIFE! LANNISTER HAS BEEN BROKEN IN HALF! AND THE REFEREE BEGINS THE TEN COUNT…

Lannister lies on the steel steps, holding his ribs from that devastating Serenade of Ecstasy onto the ladder, as Jamie rises from the barricade and walks over to the timekeeper’s booth! He motions to the ring announcer and timekeeper to move out of the way! What’s he thinking… HE GRABS A STEEL CHAIR FROM THE BOOTH AS HE LOOKS BACK TOWARDS HIM!

Matt Ryder: That broski has got bad intentions with that chair! Jamie makes his way towards Lannister as he stumbles up to his feet as he walks around AS O’HARA CRACKS THAT CHAIR ACROSS HIS SKULL AS LANNISTER FALTERS BACK INTO THE BARRICADE! JAMIE DRIVES THE EDGE OF THE CHAIR INTO THE ABDOMEN OF LANNISTER TO HAVE HIM COLLAPSE TO HIS KNEES ONTO THE FLOOR!

Jake Mercer: Jamie stands behind him as he opens the steel chair CROWNING THE KING HIMSELF WITH A STEEL CROWN! A STEEL CHAIR WEDGED IN BETWEEN THE HEAD OF LANNISTER! WHAT IS HE DOING? WHAT IS JAMIE O’HARA PLANNING TO DO TO THIS MAN? Jamie O’Hara stands in front of Lannister as the crowd is riled up for what’s to come from him!

Matt Ryder: Jaime looks to his opponent CALLING FOR THE SCARLET DAWN! JAMIE RUSHES! SCARLET DAWN RIGHT INTO THAT STEEL CHAIR AS IT CRUSHES HIS HEAD IN! THAT COULD BE IT, BRO! JAMIE O’HARA HAS THIS WON RIGHT HERE AGAINST LANNISTER! THE REFEREE STANDS BESIDE THESE TWO WARRIORS FOR THE COUNT!

LANNISTER FLINGS THE CHAIR OFF OF HIS FACE AS HE LOOKS UP TO O’HARA! LANNISTER STARTS COUGHING UP BLOOD AS YOU CAN SEE HIS BLOOD DRIPPING DOWN ONTO THE FLOOR OFF HIS CHIN!

Matt Ryder: Jamie can’t believe it AS HE MEETS LANNISTER WITH THE CORNER DROPKICK ON THE BARRICADE TO CAUSE LANNISTER TO SLUMP DOWN BACK TO THE FLOOR! Jamie rolls back to his feet and grabs Lannister by the head to escort him over to near the announce table THROWING HIM ONTO THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! JAMIE STARTS LANDING BLOW AFTER BLOW INTO THE FACE OF LANNISTER! HE INTENDS TO KEEP HIM RIGHT THERE ON THAT ANNOUNCE TABLE FOR SOMETHING SINISTER!

Jake Mercer: Jamie stares at Lannister carcass on the announce table as he turns his gaze towards the turnbuckle post that is right beside him! Is he? HE IS! JAMIE CLIMBS UP ONTO APRON TO MAKE HIS WAY TO THE TURNBUCKLE! HE STRUGGLES TO CLIMB ONTO THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE AS HE TURNS AROUND TO FACE HIM LANNISTER! LANNISTER STILL OUT!

LANNISTER SPRINTS TO THE APRON AS HE DRIVES JAMIE INTO ONTO THAT BACK BEFORE TOSSING HIM BACK INTO THE RING! Lannister doesn’t enter the ring himself though! Lannister turns over to the steel steps that he drove Jamie’s face into earlier…. THROWING THE TOP OF THE STEPS OFF AND ONTO THE FLOOR!

Jake Mercer: HE WANTS THOSE GIANT BOTTOM STEPS, MATT! LANNISTER HEAVES THE STEPS UP AS HE WALKS OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE RING! WHAT STRENGTH! HE SIMPLY TOSSES THOSE BOTTOM STEPS LIKE THEY WEIGH NOTHING INTO THE RING AS HE ROLLS INTO THE RING! Lannister stands back to his feet as he walks over Jamie WHO STRIKES HIM WITH THE ROUNDHOUSE KICK OUT OF NOWHERE! LANNISTER FALLS DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS WITH HIS EYES ROLLED TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!

Matt Ryder: LANNISTER HAS JUST TAKEN A ONE-NIGHT TRIP TO DREAMLAND! Jamie O’Hara stomps onto the chest of Lannister to keep him down onto the mat as he makes his way out to the ring apron! Jamie grabs the ropes AS HE LOOKS TO SPRINGBOARD BACK INTO THE RING WITH LANNISTER! HE LEAPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE FOR THE SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH!

Jake Mercer: LANNISTER JUMPS UP AS JAMIE HITS THE TOP ROPE! HE FALLS ONTO THE TOP ROPE AS JAMIE FALLS OVER THE APRON AND ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR! THAT WAS A NASTY SPILL THAT JAMIE TOOK RIGHT THERE!

HE HAS PULLED A MASSIVE CHAIN OUT FROM THE RING! WHAT SADISTIC THOUGHTS MUST BE RUNNING THROUGH THE MIND OF LANNISTER RIGHT NOW?

Ryder:LANNISTER IS THE EAW CHAMPION, LANNISTER IS THE NEW EAW CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

(“Lydia” by Highly Suspect plays loudly throughout the Allstate Arena — and Lannister is on his knees, when the referee hands him the EAW Championship.)

Matt Ryder: BROSKIS, HE DID! MY BO LANNISTER DID IT! HE WON THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP FROM JAMIE O’HARA! I CAN’T BELIEVE HE FINALLY DID IT! I KNEW FROM DAY ONE, DAY ONE… MERCER, THAT THIS MAN WOULD ONE DAY HOLD THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP! THAT HE WOULD BE ON TOP OF THIS COMPANY, RULING IT WITH AN IRON FIST! THIS IS A MEMORABLE DAY TO REMEMBER FOREVER IN E-A-W!

Jake Mercer: Yeah, but I can’t help to acknowledge the outside interference that Lannister had to begin with… you have to take a moment to wonder if he would of won without it. I’m not pleased, but congratulations to you, Lannister.

Matt Ryder: NOT PLEASED? THIS IS THE BIGGEST MOMENT IN LANNISTER’S CAREER! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, MERCER?

(Lannister gets up to a vertical stance, holding onto the EAW Championship with his left hand… raising it high into the air, as pyrotechnics explodes around the arena, as red and gold confetti would drop down from the ceiling — as Lannister climbs up to the top rope, holding the EAW Championship pridefully high into the air.)

Matt Ryder: WE WILL NEVER FORGET THIS NIGHT! EVER! THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF THE BEST KING OF ELITES THAT WE’VE SEEN IS RECENT YEARS! IT WAS ONLY A YEAR AGO THAT LANNISTER WON THE CROWN THAT GAVE HIM THIS OPPORTUNITY! THIS IS AMAZING, I’M LEFT IN AWE! WHAT A WAY TO CLOSE OFF THE NIGHT! WE HAVE A NEW KING OF ELITE, WE HAVE A NEW EAW CHAMPION… AND THE REIGN OF LANNISTER ONLY CONTINUES.

(The pyrotechnics would continue to explode around him, the confetti drowning Lannister in the ring whose proudly boasting his EAW Championship victory by raising the title and pointing at the camera, and then pointing at himself mouthing “I AM YOUR KING, I AM YOUR EAW CHAMPION.” — and the camera would slowly fade to black.)
