( ‘New Level’ by A$AP Ferg plays as NEO’s opening video is aired. The camera zooms inside the arena where it’s greeted by hundreds of screaming fans, simultaneously chanting, “NEO WRESTLING!” The camera eventually settles on a smiling Masters and Killswitch )
Masters: THIS IS IT FOLKS!! THE FINAL NEO BEFORE CROWNED IN BLOOD!! I’M MASTERS ALONG WITH MY BROADCAST PARTNER KILLSWITCH AND KILLY… AS I MENTIONED IT’S THE LAST NEO BEFORE WE HIT CROWNED IN BLOOD… BUT THAT’S ALL WE REALLY KNOW!!
Killswitch: Absolutely wild times on NEO right now, it’s hard to keep up with it all! But HOPEFULLY we’ll be able to make sense of all of this and Crowned in Blood will take shape.
( ‘My Demons’ by Starset hits as Maddox Ayres storms down to the ring with a microphone in hand )
Masters: Well you mentioned crazy things happening on NEO, last week Madd–
( Ayres cuts Masters off as he enters the ring and lifts the microphone to speak, pacing around the ring )
Ayres: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no… NO! Absolutely not! I want a referee out here now, NO! I WANT ALLLLLLLLL OF THE REFEREE’S OUT HERE NOW!! Lioncross, Ashten Cross, y’all too! Get down here… NOW!!
( Maddox waits by leaning up against the ropes and keeping his eyes locked on the ramp. When nothing happens, he raises the mic up once again )
Ayres: Fair game… maybe I’m a little too hot headed right now, let me try to compose myself. *Maddox takes a few deep breaths*… I just wanna know what the rules are, what the precedent is for what happened last week? *Maddox heads out of the ring and approaches the commentary table*… Killswitch, you tried to explain it all last week, right? Totally unbaffled by what occurred in the ring… as if it’s so commonplace. Have you ever seen what happened last week?
( Killswitch holds up his hands and mouths to Ayres that he better watch out, Ayres holds the microphone up to him )
Killswitch: Well… I’m sur–
( Ayres pulls the microphone back and heads back into the ring )
Ayres: Killswitch so confident last week, and now dumbfounded. I had Osamu in the crossface, seconds away from tapping out, and look I’ll give credit where it’s due, Marr was able to position Osamu so that his shoulders were dug into the mat… LET’S GET THIS CLEAR… I’M NOT DEBATING OR DISCREDITING CHARLIE MARR’S VICTORY, I’M PROTESTING MY LOSS!! BECAUSE I HAD THE PIN TOO!! I STILL HAD THE HOLD APPLIED WHEN OSAMU’S SHOULDERS WERE ON THE MAT!! MY THEME SONG PLAYED!! It’s not just sour grapes… I HAVE A LEGITIMATE CLAIM TO VICTORY AND I WANT TO BE GIVEN THAT VICTORY!! YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE IT AWAY FROM CHARLIE BUT I REFUSE TO HAVE THAT MATCH TALLIED AS A LOSS!!
( Ayres again waits in the ring pacing around, but again nothing happens )
Ayres: FINE! HAVE IT YOUR WAY! YOU WON’T ADMIT YOUR MISTAKES? YOU WON’T COME OUT AND FACE ME LIKE A MAN? I’LL COME FIND YOU MYSELF!!
( Ayres feverishly heads out of the ring and stomps up the ramp as the camera fades into commercial )

(“Wild Boys” by Duran Duran plays as the Wild Boys make their way through the curtains)
Ring Announcer: This match is a scheduled tag-team contest and introducing first with a combined weight of 350 POUNNDSSS….. BILLY & JIMMY WILDE… THE WILD BOOOOOOOOOYYYYYYYSSSSSS!!!!
Masters: Are you ready for some tag team action, Killy? Billy and Jimmy Wilde, maybe one of the more superb tag teams on NEO are looking to gain a victory and maybe some high eye-brows from the upper classmen of EAW.
Killswitch: They have definitely stormed in here on a mission and their athletism is one of the major keys on how successful they may be.
(“King of the North” by Bugzy Malone plays as Kohop Kapah and Arselx make their way through the curtains with loud mixed reactions)
Ring Announcer: And their opponents with the combined weight of 355 POUNDS…. “THE CHAOS” ARSELX AND KKINGGGGG OOFF THE NOOORTHHH…. KOHOPPPP KAAPAAAHHHH!!!
(DING DING DING)
Masters: Alright, Killy this match is about underway as Arselx and Billy Wilde will start off this match! They are both centered ring with each—
(“Aces of Spades” by Motorhead plays as Death Spades make their way down the ramp)
Killswitch: Well what a late arrival by another glorious tag team, the Death Spades! I guess they wanted to watch this match closely!
Masters: Kohop, Arselx and the Wild Boys better have them on their radar because they are watching too closely for this match. I guess they didn’t feel like sitting beside us tonight.
Killswitch: Maybe they’re just anti-social?! Anyway, it looks as if Billy Wilde is focusing too much on the Death Spades entree because now here comes Arselx with a clothesline from behind on Billy Wilde!! Ouch!! And the Death Spades are loving it as they are seem laughing..
Masters: BUT LOOK AT JIMMY! HE COMES FROM ACROSS THE ROPES AND DROPKICKS ARSELX!!! THE REF BETTER GAIN CONTROL OF THIS MATCH!!
Killswitch: This just summons Kohop from his side and he CHARGES at Jimmy!! HE GOES FOR AN UPPERCUT BUT JIMMY DODGES IT AND SUPERKICK!! SUPERKICK JUST SMACKED THE JAW OF KOHOP AND HE FALLS OUTSIDE THE RING!!!
Masters: THIS CROWD IS PUMPED!! JIMMY JUST DROPPED THE OTHER TEAM AND HE POINTS HIS FINGER TOWARD THE DEATH SPADES DIRECTION!!! HOWEVER HE NEEDS TO TURN AROUND BECAUSE ARSELX IS BACK ON HIS FEET!!!
Killswitch: DDT!!! DDT ONTO JIMMY AND IT CONNECTS AND JIMMY ROLLS OUTSIDE THE RING ON THE DEATH SPADES SIDE!!!
Masters: Uh oh! This doesn’t look pleasant for the Wild Boys as the refs attention is turned back inside the ring on Billy and Arselx whom are going at it again!! NOW LOOK AT THE DEATH SPADES ON THE OUTSIDE THEY ARE STOMPING JIMMY OUT!!! THIS IS HARD TO WATCH!!
Killswitch: The ref is blinded but wait a second!! HERE COMES KOHOP AND HE WANTS A PIECE OF JIMMY!!
Masters: BUT THE DEATH SPADES CATCH HIM!! THIS WASN’T A GOOD MOVE ON KOHOP’S PART AND THE DUECE!! THEY HIT THE DUECE ONTO KOHOP!! AND HE IS OUT!!!
Killswitch: Now the ref has finally turned his attention on the outside but the damage has already been done. Both Jimmy Wilde and Kohop have been laid out on the outside and we just started this match!
Masters: Billy and Arselx have no idea that theit tag team partners have been dismembered by the Death Spades as they continue to trade punches!! BUT BILLY HAS THE UPPERHAND ON HIM!! HE CORNERS ARSELX WITH PUNCH AFTER PUNCH AND FINALLY A HUGE UPPERCUT THAT DROPS ARSELX ON THE GROUND!!!
Killswitch: BILLY IS REVVING UP!! HE CHARGES BACKWARDS THEN RUNS BACK UP WITH A HUGE ELBOW INTO THE MOUTH OF ARSELX!!! NO!! ARSELX IS ABLE TO DODGE OUT OF THE WAY!! AND HE BOUNCES OF THE ROPES FOR A RUNNING BULLDOG ONTO BILLY WILDE!! AND THE COVER!!
BUT A KICKOUT BY BILLY WILDE!!
Masters: Arselx has the advantage of this match now… He’s staying on top of Billy with haymakers and he’s not letting up! BUT BILLY IS FIGHTING BACK! HE’S NOT GOING TO BACK DOWN!!
Killswitch: KICK-OFF BY BILLY AS ARSELX FLIES BACK INTO THE RING ROPES!! NOW BILLY POPS UP WITH A HIP TOSS!! THEN ANOTHER HIP TOSS!! AND NOW A NECKBREAKER!!! IT CONNECTS ONTO ARSELX!!
Masters: Billy is about to finish this match right now! He’s climbing up the top turnbuckle! HE’S GOING FOR THE NOSEDIVE!!
Killswtich: NO!!! HERE COMES KOHOP FROM THE DEAD!! HE PUSHES BILLY OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND HE LANDS RIGHT INTO THE DEATH SPADES!!!
Masters: That might not have been a good idea!! JIMMY IS BACK INSIDE THE RING AND HE SEES ARSELX TRYING TO GET BACK ONTO HIS FEET AND HERE COMES THE SUPERMAN PUNCH!! BUT ARSELX DODGES THAT PUNCH AND JIMMY RUNS RIGHT INTO KOHOP FOR A HARD CLOTHESLINE!!
Killswitch: Jimmy just drops on the mat!!! Arselx has finally gathered himself and now they’re both on the attack on Jimmy! Meanwhile Billy is trying to get back inside the ring.. Death Spades are livid on the outside! They want a piece of Kohop but they just calm down instead as Billy CHARGES INSIDE THE RING AND GOES AT KOHOP BUT HE MISSES! AND NOW KOHOP AND ARSELX GRAB HIM INTO A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!! BILLY DROPS AS ARSELX COVERS HIM!!
BUT WAIT A SECOND!! THE DEATH SPADES JUST PULLED THE REF OUTSIDE THE RING!!
Masters: NOW THE REF IS GETTING IN THE FACE OF THE DEATH SPADES!! BUT WAM!!! DASH WILDER WITH A PUNCH INTO THE REF’S FACE AND HE IS OUT!!
Killswitch: This causes for Arselx and Kohop to slide outside the ring and confront the Death Spades but look at the Death Spades backing up the ramp like a bunch of cowards!!
Masters: A new ref has quickly ran down the ring and I think Jimmy and Billy Wilde are back on their feet as they bounce off the top ropes together and jump over the ropes with double moonsaults onto Kohop and Arselx!!! WHAT A TAG MOVE BY THE WILD BOYS!!!
Killswitch: HOLY SHIT!! THEY GOT UP SO HIGH!! AND NOW JIMMY AND BILLY GRAB THEM BACK INSIDE THE RING AND BILLY WITH AN INVERTED ATOMIC DROP ONTO KOHOPS AND HE DROPS HIM!!!
Masters: ARSELX NEEDS SAVIOR RIGHT NOW BECAUSE BILLY AND JIMMY ARE SIZING HIM UP FOR THE WILD SPLASH AS HE SITS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!! SUPERKICK BY BILLY ONTO ARSELX!!! AND HERE IT GOES!!! WILD SPLASH!!! IT CONNECTS!!! THE COVERR!!
(DING DING DING)
( The Wild Boys by Duran Duran plays )
Ring Announcer: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS VIA PIN-FALL… THE WILD BOOOOOYYYYSSSS!!!
Masters: This match was one chaotic match from the start. The Death Spades have pretty much caused trouble from the start to the end!
Killswitch: And from the outcome of it… The Wild Boys are able to prevail.
Masters: I’m sure this won’t sit well with Kohop and Arselx though, Killy.
Killswitch: Well we shall find out!
( The camera fades out to a poorly lit green screen, the same one from last week. Shark Man and Florida Man step into frame before the green screen has a chance to project its scenery. Florida Man is shown peering off into the distance with his hand above his eyebrows, as if he’s trying to see something very far away. Shark Man shakes his head. Finally the green screen lights up to show them… under water. The green screen quickly cuts back out then back on to show a fancy city… Paris perhaps?? Suddenly Florida Man’s eyes light up. Shark Man goes to speak but Florida Man cuts him off )
Florida Man: Of course… it was so obvious the whole time.
Shark Man: What was?
Florida Man: I know where we need to go…
( Without saying another word Florida Man runs off screen leaving only Shark Man in the frame. He looks directly into the camera and shrugs before running off to “catch up” with his friend )

(This Charming Man by The Smiths plays through the speakers as Charlie Marr walks through the curtains with a huge grin on his face)
Ring Announcer: The following match is scheduled for one fall! And Introducing first, from London United Kingdom and weighing in at 240 POUNNNDSSSSS… CHARRRRLIIIIEEEEE MAAARRRR!!!
Masters: Coming straight off a victory last week on NEO in a triple threat match, Charlie Marr is looking to prove himself yet again!
Killswitch: Charlie Marr used wisdom and excellent awareness to pull off last week’s win. Let’s see if he has what it takes to strike once again!
( ‘Jerusalem’ by Sir Willam Blake transitions through the speakers and Reginald Dampshaw II walks through the curtains in high fashion)
Killswitch: One of Dynasty’s finest has come a long way. I tell ya, Masters… Reginald is my favorite to win this match-up.
Masters: He’s definitely an opportunist, Killy but one of the smaller competitiors. It will be interesting to see how everything foreplays for this young talented man.
(“You Will Know Our Name” by ACE+ suddenly picks up as Moongoose McQueen makes his entrance with loud mixed reactions.)
Masters: Now here is truly a fan favorite. Moongoose McQueen is certainly a seasoned veteran compared to Charlie and Reginald. And I’m sure he plans on using his high prolific vision to dictate and come out on top of this match!
(DING DING DING)
Killswitch: And we are underway! All three competitiors are eyeing down each-other, looking to see who will make the first move…
Masters: Look at Charlie Marr, he’s making his way towards Reginald, trying to make peace with him. What is he doing?
Killswitch: Ha! I believe Charile is doing the same act as he did last week when Osamu helped him put a thrashing on young Maddox Ayres. This doesn’t look good for Mr. McQueen coming all the way from Voltage.
Masters: It certainly doesn’t! Reg is actually complying with Charlie and Moongoose is looking a bit confused. This isn’t supposed to be a handicap match! They’re cornering Moongoose and he doesn’t know what to do!
Killswitch: Just run, Moongoose! Run back to Voltage! That will save you from this pounding you’re about to embark on.
Masters: Charlie and Reginald are both from the same country so I can definitely see why they would form a sort of tag-team to take advantage of the most dangerous opponent in this match. They are standing side-by-side and Charlie is looking to attack first!
Killswitch: WAIT A SECOND MASTERS! REG SWINGS A SHOT TO CHARLIE MARR’S SKULL! I DON’T THINK HE TOOK TO KINDLY WITH CHARLIE TRYING TO LEAD HIM ON A 2-ON-1 ATTACK!
Masters: CHARLIE IS SHOOK! HE DIDN’T SEE THAT ONE COMING! AND NOW HERE COMES MOONGOOSE WITH A UPPERCUT INTO CHARLIE! CHARLIE IS ROCKED BACKWARDS RIGHT INTO REGINALDS ARMS!!!
Killswitch: HE GRABS MARR AND LIFTS HIM IN THE AIR FOR THE GOLDEN BUSTER!!! AND HE HITS IT!! HE DROPS CHARLIE ON HIS BACK! MAN YOU CAN HEAR THE SCREAMS OF THAT CANVAS!!!
Masters: THEY’RE NOT DONE YET! MOONGOOSE HAS CLIMBED UP THE TOP ROPES FOR WHAT IT SEEMS TO BE A FROG SPLASH!!! RAIGEKI!! AND MOONGOOSE DROPS ON TOP OF CHARLIE!
Killswitch: MARR IS SCREAMING IN PAIN AND HOLDING HIS STOMACH! HE HAS BEEN COMPETELY ABUSED FROM THIS MATCH AND WE JUST STARTED!
Masters: I hate to say it, Killy but that’s what Charlie gets for trying to cheat his way to victory. And being the bigger opponent in this match doesn’t make it any better.
Killswitch: MOONGOOSE IS GOING FOR THE COVER THOUGH!
TWOO— REGINALD BREAKS UP THE COUNT!
Killswitch: Looks like the partnership only lasted for a few minutes. Now Reginald drags Moongoose off Marr and goes for a cover!!
TWOOO!!!— MOONGOOSE BREAKS UP THE COUNT!!
Masters: WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? I don’t think it’s a good idea to cover Charlie right in front of each-other.
Killswitch: I think Moongoose heard you, Masters because Moongoose doesn’t waste time and clothesline’s Reginald outside of the ring!!
Masters: NOW MOONGOOSE HAS IT! ALL HE NEEDS TO DO IS COVER HIM!!!
Killswitch: AND HE HAS IT! MOONGOOSE IS ABOUT TO STEAL THIS VICTORY!!
THRE—CHARLIE MARR KICKS OUT JUST BEFORE THE FULL THREE COUNT!
Killswitch: They took too long because now Marr has finally recovered from those vicious offensive moves by his opponents. However, Moongoose is going to take advantage at the fallen Charlie Marr. He grabs Marr and hits a spinning backbreaker!! OUCH YOU CAN HEAR THAT ONE FROM A DISTANCE!!
Masters: HOLD ON!!! REGINALD IS BACK INSIDE THE RING AND HE DOESN’T LOOK TOO PLEASED!! HE SWIFTLY PICKS UP MOMENTUM AND FLIES STRAIGHT OVER AT MOONGOOSE! HE GRABS HIM INTO THE GERMAN SUPLEX AND IT CONNECTS!! MOONGOOSE’S BODY DROPS ON THE MAT!
Killswitch: Reg has taken the advantage now and he continues to go after Moongoose. He starts stomping on each body part to completely numb Moongoose out of this match! Reginald is breaking havoc!
Masters: BUT HERE COMES CHARLIE AGAIN! HE’S BACK UP WITH A BIG BOOT INTO THE FACE OF REGINALD! KNOCKING HIM BACK OUTSIDE THE RING!
Killswitch: Charlie turns his attention back to Moongoose and he lifts him up to his feet and hoists him into the falling powerbomb!! It connects!!!
Masters: CHARLIE GOES FOR THE QUICK COVER!!
KICKOUT BY MOONGOOSE!
Killswitch: You’re not going to put out a veteran with little effort. Moongoose is definitely in trouble though as Charlie goes back to man-handling him on the ground with punch after punch to the skull of McQueen!!
Masters: Now Marr drags McQueen up by his hair and throws him outside the ring right into Reginald! Moongoose falls right on top of Reginald though and picks himself back up immediately!
Killswitch: Marr is making his way onto the outside as the referee is trying to control this match but it isn’t working in his favor either! MARR CHARGES AT MCQUEEN! BUT MCQUEEN QUICKLY DODGES MARR AND HITS HIM WITH A LEG DROP! MARR STUMBLES AND FACE SMASHES AGAINST THE RING STEPS!!
Masters: I BET MARR IS BUSTED OPEN AFTER THAT HUGE FALL TO THE FACE ON THOSE STEEL STEPS! AND NOW MCQUEEN IS RUNNING TOWARD MARR AGAIN AND USES THE RING APRON TO COMPLETE A LEAPING KNEE SMASH INTO MARR’S FACE! CHARLIE DROPS ONTO THE FLOOR!
Killswitch: MCQUEEN NEEDS LOOK BEHIND HIM BECAUSE REGINALD IS BACK ON HIS FEET AND HE’S LOOKING TO GET SOME ACTION! REGINALD WITH AN EUROPEAN UPPERCUT INTO THE FACE OF MCQUEEN! MCQUEEN IS KNOCKED BACK INTO THE RING!
Masters: McQueen just rolls under the bottom ropes after that impact… He’s trying to recover from that massive uppercut! But Reg follows right behind him and he swings McQueen across the ropes and goes for a belly-to-belly suplex!!! IT CONNECT–NO!! MCQUEEN ROLLS REGINALD UP INTO A QUICK PIN!!!
ONE!! TWOO!! KICKOUT BY REGINALD!!
Killswitch: That was a quick call!! AND NOW MCQUEEN STRIKES BACK AT REGINALD AS THEY COME BACK AT EACHOTHER! THEY’RE TRADING SHOTS WITH ONE ANOTHER BUT MOONGOOSE IS GETTING THE BETTER END OF IT! HE IRISH WHIPS REGINALD THEN GOES FOR A WAIST-LIFT SLAM!!
Masters: IT’S COUNTERED BY REGINALD AND HE SPINS OUT OF IT AND PUSHES MCQUEEN BAC–SUPERKICK!!! MCQUEEN WITH A QUICK SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF REGINALD!! I THINK I SEE SOME TEETH FLYING OUT HERE TONIGHT KILLY!!
Killswitch: He should go ahead and cover Reginald but I don’t think Moongoose is finished just yet! He wants to place the nail in the coffin with this match. He’s climbing the turnbuckle for another Frog Splash!! This could be it for Reginald and Charlie’s hope of winning this match!!
Masters: HE’S ABOUT TO END IT HERE! MOONGOOSE IS ON TOP OF THE ROPE– BUT HERE COMES CHARLIE MARR… HE GRABS MOONGOOSE WITH BOTH HANDS AND TOSSES HIM ONTO THE MAT BACK FIRST!!
Killswitch: Charlie just threw Moongoose like he was a piece of paper! Charlie with the advantage now as Moongoose springs up but he’s caught with big boot to the jaw! Moongoose drops! And Charile is looking for the kill! HE’S GOING FOR THE IS DEAD AS MOONGOOSE IS SLOWLY MOVING BACK TO HIS FEET AFTER THAT BIG BOOT!
Masters: QUEEN IS DEAD!!! CHARLIE IS ABLE TO WAIT! NO!! MOONGOOSE IS ABLE TO COUNTER IT INTO THE BLACKOUT!! AND CHARLIE IS OUT! MOONGOOSE WITH THE COVER!! THIS IS IT!!
BUT REGINALD WITH THE SAVE AS HE GRABS MOONGOSE’S LEGS!!
Killswitch: REG DRAGS MCQUEEN INTO THE BOSTON CRAB!! HE HAS IT LOCKED IN– YET ANOTHER COUNTER BY MOONGOOSE AS HE KICKS REG OFF WITH HIS RIGHT LEG!!
Masters: MOONGOOSE POPS UP TO HIS FEET! AND HITS A SUPERKICK!!! AND IT CONNECTS!! REG IS DOWN!!!
Killswitch: BUT CHARLIE MARR IS BACK UP!! AND MOONGOOSE TURNS AROUND INTO THE QUEEN IS DEAD!! THE QUEEN IS DEAD!!!
Masters: MCQUEEN DROPS TO THE MAT!! THIS COULD BE OVER!! WILL CHARLIE MARR COVER HIM?! YES HE DOES!! ROLLING OVER AND HOOKING THE LEG!!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! HE’S DONE IT!!
(DING DING DING)
(This Charming Man hits as Charlie Marr gets to his feet to celebrate his victory)
Ring Announcer: Your winner… CHAAAAAARRRRRLLLLIEEEEEEEEE MAAAARRRRRRRRRRR!!
Masters: WHAT A HUGE WIN THIS IS!! CHARLIE MARR HAS JUST PINNED A MEMBER OF THE VOLTAGE ROSTER!!
Killswitch: AND THERE IS NO DEBATE ABOUT HIS VICTORY THIS WEEK, IT’S A CONVINCING ONE!! He must feel on top of the world right now!!
( Camera fades backstage to Maddox Ayres rushing through the main corridor of the arena, apparently still not finding what he wants. Finally he stops and sighs in relief before once again taking on an angry tone. The camera pans around to show Lioncross, Maddox steps up to him and gets right in his face )
Ayres: THERE YOU ARE, FINALLY!! Lo–
Lioncross: Here I am. And no, I know what you’re gonna ask me, but my answer is no. You lost, you were outsmarted, outplayed… out performed? Maybe. I will not expunge it from the record books, I will not force the referee to reverse the decision or to give you a victory along with Marr. His decision was final… and so is mine.
Ayres: Lioncross I swear–
Lioncross: Threats? Really?
Ayres: If you just let me get a word in I think you–
Lioncross: Mmmm… that’s not gonna happen. Look, I said my decision was final. And despite you threatening me, which should be a fireable offense… I’m gonna give you an opportunity. I don’t know… maybe because it’s the holiday’s. I’m organizing an elimination style match-up for Crowned in Blood between Florida Man, Shark Man, Kohop Kapah, Arselx, Osamu and your good friend Charlie Marr… originally I had intended to leave you out of it, especially with your behavior earlier tonight… but like I said it’s the holiday’s and I’m feeling generous so you’re in.
Ayres: That’s it?
Lioncross: THAT’S IT?! I’m giving you an opportunity to shine on a big stage like Crowned in Blood, a chance to prove yourself and your worth on NEO… and you say that’s it? Maybe I should reconsider firing you.
Ayres: No.. no sir, I just meant..
Lioncross: I’ll hear no more of this. Good luck.
( With that Lioncross walks off, the camera focuses in on Ayres looking visibly frustrated )

(Paint it Black by the Rolling Stones plays as Shackleford comes through the curtains with a mixed reaction)
Ring Announcer: This match is a triple threat match and it’s set for one fall! Introducing first from Fratton England and weighing in at 210 POUNDDSS….”THE PROPHET” SHACKLEFOOOORRRDDDD!!!
Masters: Shackleford is definitely a veteran in the lands of EAW. I’m pretty sure that his opponents have done their homework on him.
Killswitch: They better had because Shackleford’s experience might do enough for him to win this one.
(Eyes on Fire by Zed is dead plays as Osamu Arcichida comes to the stage)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent from Seattle Washington and weighing in at 223 POOUNDSSS… OSSSAAAMMMUUUU ARRRRCIIIICCCCHHHIIIIDDDAAA!!
Masters: Osamu is no stranger to triple threat matches. Last week, he put on an epic showing but let’s see if this time that he can pull over a win.
Killswitch: You might be right, Masters. Maybe we’re underestimated him. He could probably pull one over a veteran in Shackleford.
(“Switch” transitions in as James Ranger makes his way down the ramp)
Ring Announcer: And the final opponent… From London, England and weighing in at 243 POUNDS… JAMMMMEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS RANNNNNNNGGGGGEEEEEEEERRRRRRR!!!
(DING DING DING)
Masters: This match is underway between these tough competitors and it looks like Osamu isn’t wasting anytime as he attacks James Ranger! They both are trading shots after shots and now here comes Shackleford right behind Osamu and he pulls him off James hits a quick uppercut!
Killswitch: James stumbles back on his feet while Osamu CHARGES and hits a running dropkick to the face of Shackleford! But Ford pops right back up to his feet and he dives for a superkick on Osamu! BUT OSAMU DODGES IT AND WITH A CALF KICK STRAIGHT INTO SHACKLEFORD! THEN A RUNNING ENZIGURI!!! SHACKLEFORD DROPS!!
Masters: NOW HERE COMES JAMES RANGER AGAIN AND HE’S EYE-ING OSAMU!! HE COMES CHARGES IN AT HIM!! CLOTHESLINE!! NO!! OSAMU QUICKLY TURNS HIM WITH A SPINNING UPPERCUT!!
Killswitch: What dominance by Osamu early into this match! But Ranger isn’t knocked down… And Osamu is looking to take advantage after that vicious uppercut! He’s looking for the TIGER SUPLEX!!! HOWEVER SHACKLEFORD POPS BACK UP AND HE GRABS OSAMU AND WHIPS HIM OFF THE ROPES!! HE CATCHES OSAMU IN A SIDESLAM AND IT CONNECTS!!!
Masters: Big move by Shackleford as that may have slowed Osamu down… He’s holding his back after that hard slam. Ranger is looking for some offense now… FINALLY A CLOTHESLINE!! HE TAKES SHACKLEFORD’S HEAD OFF WITH THAT HARD CLOTHESLINE!!! AND HE COVERS HIM!
BUT KICKOUT BY SHACKLEFORD!
Killswitch: You’re definitely not going to put out a veteran like Shackleford out that easily. Ranger must be saving himself time after catching that spinning uppercut! Ranger now lifts Shackleford up to his feet and goes for the Jawbreaker!! SHACKLEFORD COUNTERS THOUGH AND WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX!! HE DROPS RANGER ON THE MAT!! WHAT STRENGTH BY SHACKLEFORD!!
Masters: He needs to turn his attention back to Osamu though, Killy!! BECAUSE OSAMU IS ON THE TOP ROPES AND HE’S GOING FOR THE KILL!! HE FLIES OFF FOR A DIVING CROSSBODY!!! AND HE LANDS RIGHT ON TOP OF SHACKLEFORD!! AND HE PROCEEDS IT WITH A COVER!!!
NO!! SHACKLEFORD IS ABLE TO KICK OUT!
Killswitch: I thought Osamu almost upset him right there! But Shackleford has kept this match alive!! And now Osamu is looking to seize up his opponent… Shackleford is using the rope for leverage!
Masters: And on the other side of the ring, Ranger is lifting himself back up!! It’s about to be a collision course right about now… OSAMU IS GOING FOR THE TRIPLE DROPKICK!!! HE LANDS ONE OF THEM!!! SHACKLEFORD DROPS!! AND HERE GOES ANOTHER!!! TWO DROPKICKS TO SHACKLEFORD!!!
Killswitch: NOW THE LAST O—NO!!! RANGER TURNS OSAMU AROUND AND HITS THE SUNRISE TRIPLE!! AND IT CONNECTS!!! NOW RANGER WITH THE COVER–SHACKLEFORD QUICKLY PULLS RANGER BY HIS HAIR BEFORE HE COULD COVER OSAMU!! HE KICKS HIM IN THE GROIN AND LIFTS HIM UP FOR A POWERBOMB!!!
Masters: BUT RANGER IS FIGHTING IT!! HE KNOWS HOW IMPORTANT THIS MOVE WILL IMPACT HIM! AND OSAMU POPS BACK UP AND RAMS THE KNEE OF SHACKLEFORD JUST AS HE WAS ABOUT TO FIGHT OFF RANGER!!
Killswitch: Shackleford has no choice but to drop Ranger… BUT WAIT!! WOW!! SHACKLEFORD IS STILL HOLDING ONTO RANGER AND DECIDES TO PLANT RANGER ON TOP OF OSAMU WITH THAT POWERBOMB!! WHAT A MOVE!!
Masters: NOW HE COVERS BOTH OF THEM AS THEY ARE STACKED ON TOP OF EACH-OTHER!! HERE GOES THE COUNT!!
BUT OSAMU PUSHES RANGER OFF HIM CAUSING THE COUNT TO BREAK!
Killswitch: I think the ending is near Masters as Shackleford runs off the ring ropes and goes for the CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!! OSAMU BETTER WATCH OUT!! BUT OSAMU DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE CLOTHESLINE AND OSAMU WITH A UUNDERHOOK DDT! SHACKLEFORD DROPS AGAIN ON THE CANVAS!!
Masters: Osamu is smelling victory after that move! However Ranger somehow has managed to get back on his feet quickly after that powerbomb! What great fighting spirit these competitiors are showing in this heavyweight match-up! Ranger with DEATHSTRIKE!!! DEATHSTRIKE CONNECTS ONTO OSAMU!! HIS LIGHTS ARE OUT!! AND HE COVERS HIM!!
ANDDD—SHACKLEFORD BREAKS THE COUNT JUST IN TIME!!1
Killswitch: Shackleford has come to save the day and I think he used a lot of energy just to break up that count!! What’s going to happen next? I wonder!
Masters: Shackleford rises to his feet as does Ranger… OH AND LOOK AT SHACKLEFORD THOUGH… OUT OF NOWHERE HE COMES CHARGING WITH THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!! IT CONNECTS!! FLIPPING JAMES RANGER INSIDE OUT IN THE PROCESS!! JUST LOOK LIKE THAT IT COULD BE OVER AS SHACKLEFORD HEADS INTO THE PIN!!
(DING DING DING)
(Paint It Black hits as Shackleford gets his hand raised)
Ring Announcer: Your winner… SHACCCKKKLLLEEEEEFORRRRDDD!!
Masters: Some things never change, huh?
Killswitch: Shackleford left NEO a few months back, but he comes back and it’s like he never missed a step! Congratulations to him!

Masters: Not even thirty seconds into the match and Lang pulls away with the victory. That’s impressive.
Killswitch: Absolute domination from Lang as he continues to impress us all.
( Lang grabs a microphone from ringside )
Lang: You know… I’m startin’ to get real tired of this shit. How many times is this now? Three? Four? I’ve only been here so long and it seems like every single time I come out here I leave without breakin’ a sweat. This ain’t what I came here for, I CAME HERE TO FIGHT! And I’m not gettin’ any fights from none of you sons of bitches in the back. So here’s what I’m gonna do… Chris Elite has been poking his head around backstage for a while now, we had a little bit of a run in last week. I told him if he wanted to fight me that he could come get me, but I said I wanted to take care of Daryl Kinkade first… well now I’ve changed my mind. I know if I fight Daryl Kinkade, or anybody else on this NEO roster, the result will be the same as the one you just saw… I want you Chris Elite, and I want you at Crowned in Blood.
( Lang tosses the microphone over his shoulder and heads out of the ring, up the ramp )
Masters: WOW!! WELL THE GAUNTLET HAS BEEN LAID BY LANG!! HE’S CHALLENGING CHRIS ELITE TO A MATCH AT CROWNED IN BLOOD!!
Killswitch: But will Elite accept the match?!

Shaker Jones: Aren’t we supposed to be in the ring.
Lioncross: I peg your pardon?
Shaker Jones: Well, I’ve never been a part of one of these championship contract signings but I sure as hell have seen my fair share of them… I KNOW we’re supposed to be in the ring in front of the crowd.
Lioncross: Yes, well… you see it’s…
( Woogieman cuts him off )
Woogieman: Yeah… come to think of it… and as much as I hate to admit it, he’s right! What the hell is this, Lioncross?! Are you saying my Bhampionship isn’t important?
Lioncross: No… no guys it’s not like that at all.
Shaker Jones: I think that is what he’s saying, Woogie. He doesn’t think we matter, he doesn’t think that Bhampionship matters, he’s trying to sweep us under the rug.
Lioncross: I ASSURE YOU that’s not what I’m–
Woogieman: Despicable, just despicable. You know Lioncross, there’s A LOT of people who want you gone around here, but I’ve always stuck up for you… but now I must say, I’ve NEVER been so disrespected in my life… I think I’m about to start siding with those folks that want you fired.
Woogieman: I don’t wanna hear it. If you have no faith in us then all we can do is prove you wrong at Crowned in Blood. Give me the contract.
( Lioncross thinks about speaking again but decides against it, he reluctantly hands the contract over to Woogieman who angrily signs it. He holds the Hermes… Big Bhris Bhampionship up towards Shaker Jones and nods before storming off )
Lioncross: Shaker, listen please… I–
Shaker Jones: CONTRACT!!!!
( Lioncross frowns as he gives the contract to Shaker Jones who signs it and throws it back in Lioncross’ face. He gets up, shakes his head and leaves as the camera zooms in on Lioncross’ dumbfounded face )
( Commercial Break )
( Camera fades to the ring )
Ring Announcer: This is a Non-Title Match scheduled for ONE FALL and is the MAIN EVENT of the evening! Introducing first…
( “My Demons” by Starset plays throughout the arena as Maddox Ayres steps out onto the stage. The crowd lets out a roar of cheers as he soaks it in, then makes his way to the ring. )
Ring Announcer: Weighing in at two hundred and twenty pounds… From Orlando, Florida… MADDOOXX AYYREESS!!
Killswitch: The rising star of NEO in his second Main Event in a month! Hopefully he can bounce back from his past two losses tonight!
Masters: Against the current New Breed Champion? He’s got his work cut out for him, but it’s not impossible.
( “Morning Glory” by Oasis begins to play through the speakers and the fans erupt even louder in cheers. Finnegan Wakefield steps out onto the stage, New Breed Championship around his waist, hands behind his head, popping his collar. He walks to the ring with confidence and care-free attitude, extending his hands for fans to touch. As he gets to ringside, climbs the steps, wipes his feet on the apron and mounts the second turnbuckle and the top turnbuckle and points to the sky. He proceeds to jump into the ring and walks to the middle with a finger to the sky. He backs off to his corner, doing wrist exercises. )
Ring Announcer: And his opponent… Weighing in at one hundred and eighty one pounds… From Bury St Edmunds, West Suffolk, England… He is the current EAW New Breed Champion… “The Wrestling Artist”… FINNEGANNN WAKEEFIIEELLDDD!!!
Killswitch: Maddox definitely has the size advantage, but with Finnegan’s history here and the fact that he’s the New Breed Champion, he’ll still have quite the fight on his hands.
Masters: Like I said, this isn’t impossible for Maddox, but he’s gonna have to fight like he’s never fought before. Finnegan looks ready and determined to get the victory, as he should.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Killswitch: Our Main Event is underway as both Maddox and Finnegan shake hands in the middle of the ring. A great sign of respect both ways as these two young men lock up! Finnegan gets early advantage with a headlock on Maddox. He’s fighting as he pushes Finnegan off and rebounding off of the ropes! A quick clothesline by Maddox, but Finnegan is immediately back to his feet! Another clothesline from Maddox, and again Finnegan is back up! He attempts yet another clothesline, but Finnegan evades this one which sends him into the ropes this time! Finnegan charges at Maddox, looking for a clothesline of his own! MADDOX THROWS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE AND OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Great look from him to counter that and give himself a few seconds. The ref starts the countout!
Masters: Maddox looks like he’s going outside himself… He backs up a little bit and then sprints for the ropes! MOONSAULT OFF THE ROPES! FINNEGAN NOTICES AND SLIDES BACK INSIDE QUICKLY! AND MADDOX LANDS ON HIS FEET! THESE TWO ARE PUTTING ON A SHOW AND IT’S JUST GETTING STARTED! Both of them smirk at each other and clap as the ref restarts the count.
Killswitch: Maddox slides back in with Finnegan letting him in. They both start to circle each other in the ring looking to lock up again. Both extend their hands out, but Finnegan rolls around to the back of Maddox, lifts him up and connects a quick back suplex! Not wasting anytime, Finnegan connects a quick elbow drop straight into the heart of Maddox! He goes for another, but Maddox rolls out of the way! Both me get back to their feet and Maddox is charging right to Finnegan! A HUGE forearm smash takes Finnegan to the mat and Maddox runs straight to the ropes! Finnegan is back to his feet… SPRINGBOARD TORNADO KICK!! FINNEGAN SLIDES OUT OF THE WAY! MADDOX COULD BE IN TROUBLE HERE!
Masters: ROUNDHOUSE KICK FROM FINNEGAN! Maddox falls to the mat now and Finnegan doesn’t waste anytime as he’s looking to lock in a Surfboard Stretch! He’s got him on his stomach and legs in position… He’s reaching for the arms… HE’S GOT IT LOCKED IN! MADDOX IS IN TROUBLE! Finnegan is pulling back pretty hard and Maddox is trying to find a way out of this! HE’S GOT A FOOT LOOSE! Using it as leverage now, he’s rolling Finnegan onto his stomach. He adjusts his position… BOSTON CRAB! HE’S GOT IT LOCKED IN! WE HAVE TWO SUBMISSIONISTS IN THIS RING AND IT’S SHOWING RIGHT NOW! Maddox is pulling back now, applying pressure to the legs and lower back of Finnegan! NOW FINNEGAN ROLLS MADDOX OVER, THIS TIME HE’S GOT HIS SHOULDERS ON THE MAT!
Killswitch: Maddox kicks out just in time! That was a beautiful counter from Finnegan and it’s going to take a lot more if Maddox expects to take him out with a submission like that. Finnegan grabs a hold of Maddox and sends him into the corner turnbuckle! He follows right behind him… NOBLE LANCER! HE CONNECTS THE SINGLE LEG DROPKICK TO THE SIDE OF HIS FACE! Maddox is groggy and is walking away from the corner… Finnegan is stalking him… HE’S GOING FOR THE ANDROMEDA! HE’S ALMOST GOT THE FULL NELSON IN… BUT MADDOX PULLS AWAY AND ROLLS BEHIND FINNEGAN QUICKLY TO CONNECT THE LOST IN THE ECHO! HE JUST AVOIDED THE POSSIBLE END AND GAVE HIMSELF SOME TIME WITH THE HALF NELSON LIFTED AND DROPPED INTO A BRIDGING OLYMPIC SLAM!
Masters: Finnegan is down! Maddox is down and looks like he needs a second, but the pin is there waiting for him! He’s slowly getting his arm on top of Finnegan… And he’s got it! The ref starts the count!
Masters: NO! FINNEGAN KICKS OUT! Maddox is pulling himself up on the ropes and Finnegan is getting back to his feet. He notices an opportunity and quickly charges at Maddox… INAZUMA LEG LARIAT! WAIT NO MADDOX JUST MOVED OUT OF THE WAY! FINNEGAN IS STUCK IN BETWEEN THE ROPES! MADDOX CHARGES BACK AT FINNEGAN WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP IN BETWEEN THE ROPES! FINNEGAN SLIDES THROUGH AND MADDOX STOMPS ON THE GROUND! He just evaded what could’ve been a serious injury if he had connected that! Finnegan is now outside and Maddox slides out with him.
Killswitch: The ref has started the counted! Finnegan has his back turned and Maddox grabs a hold of him from behind and throws him into the side of the ring and then unloads a fury of punches to his face!
Masters: He holds back on the punches, grabs a hold of him again and then whips him right into the barricade! Finnegan’s back just collided with that barricade and that couldn’t of felt good!
Killswitch: Maddox grabs a hold of him again and goes to throw him into the steel steps! BUT FINNEGAN SWITCHES IT UP AND THROWS HIM INTO THEM INSTEAD! MADDOX HITS HIS KNEE AND FALLS OVER THE TOP! Finnegan regathers himself for a split second then walks right back up to Maddox.
Masters: He pulls him up and OH MY GOD AN EXPLODER SUPLEX STRAIGHT INTO THE GROUND! MADDOX HAS GOT TO BE HURTING RIGHT NOW! Finnegan leans against the side of the ring now and the crowd seems to be enjoying this right now!
Killswitch: Why isn’t he trying to end the count by getting in the ring? Instead he’s going straight for Maddox again… He lifts him up, but Maddox shoves him off, giving a little space between them! Maddox charges and Finnegan evades with a baseball slide right between his legs. MADDOX WITH THE PELE KICK! FINNEGAN TRIED TO EVADE BUT MADDOX PULLED THROUGH! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN RIGHT NOW!
Masters: Maddox is back to his feet and so is Finnegan! Both men start trading right hooks! Maddox! Finnegan! Maddox! Finnegan! Maddox with an elbow to the jaw of Finnegan!
Killswitch: Finnegan responds with an elbow of his own AND THEN STARTS UNLOADING A FURY OF PUNCHES TO MADDOX’S FACE AS THEY BACK UP RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE! I DON’T THINK THEY CARE ABOUT THE COUNT AT THIS POINT AND THEY’RE JUST BATTLING IT OUT! MADDOX IS THROWING PUNCHES BACK! IT’S A BRAWL!
Masters: FINNEGAN TACKLES MADDOX AND THEY BOTH GO OVER THE BARRICADE! IT LOOKS LIKE THEY LAND ON EACH OTHER AND THEY’RE BARELY MOVING!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Ring Announcer: As a result of a double countout… This match ends in a no contest!
Killswitch: They were beating the absolute hell out of each other out there! What got into them? When the match started, they shook hands and the match ended with both of them outside just beating each other to death!
Masters: Maybe it makes sense. Neither man wanted to lose and they both were laying it to the other, so they just battled outside to avoid a loss on either side. Yeah, that makes sense.
Killswitch: Both men put on quite the display in this Main Event and I’m happy to have seen it. Maddox is proving himself to be quite the up and coming Elitist and I can’t wait to see more.
Masters: Our New Breed Champion has a busy week as he’s got a Triple Threat Match this Sunday on Voltage he’s competing in with his Title on the line! Avoiding a loss tonight was in his best interest!
( Camera fades backstage where Chris Elite is shown talking with Ashten Cross )

Killswitch: IT’S THE CONTRACT!! AND LOOK, OVER CHRIS ELITE’S NAME IS A SIGNATURE… DOES THAT MEAN WHAT I THINK IT MEANS?!
( Chris Elite and Ashten Cross shake hands before Chris Elite begins to walk off. Ashten Cross holds the contract up and begins smiling )
Masters: IT DOES!! CHRIS ELITE VS. LANG THE IRASCIBLE IS OFFICIAL FOR CROWNED IN BLOOD!! OH THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT!!
