Pain For Pride 9

[/vc_row]

 

DAY 1

( EAW Intro plays )

(The picture comes into focus of the scenic view of downtown Miami, colorful and vibrant, music playing as people converse in various restaurants, hotels and shops. All over Miami has propaganda and advertisements of PFP 9 in the form of posters, billboards, murals and etc. Suddenly everything stops and all that the viewer can see is the empty New Miami Stadium and the Pain for Pride IX set built onto its field.)

(Voice Over): Eight times before, warriors have gathered from around the world in the biggest gathering of stars the wrestling universe has ever known. Blood, sweat, tears, souls…everything has been given. Thousands arrive year after year, stadium after stadium to see the greatest in the professional wrestling world ply their trade.

“Announcer: Here is your Winner… and the NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEW EAW Hardcore Champiooon!!! The Rated R!!! SHAMANNN OOOF SEXYYYY!!!”

(Pictures from previous Pain for Pride decorate the screen in a collage of combatants. Legends, Hall of Famers, rising stars are all seen. Each time a commentator can be heard, a still photo of each victorious athlete comes into focus.)

(Voice Over): Do you hear the echo of the past? Have you learned from the eight previous trips to the Pinnacle of Professional Wrestling?

( Flash back to PFP 2 )

“AND BOBBY THROWS THE FINAL PUNCH, BRASS KNUCKLES RIGHT INTO EXTREME ENIGMA’S FA— NO!!! ENIGMA BLOCKS THE SHOT USING THE CITV BRIEFCASE!!!!! AND EXTREME ENIGMA WITH THE BRIEFCASE BASHES IT STRAIGHT INTO BOBBY’S SKULL, AS BOBBY CASH FALLS OFF OF THE LADDER!!!!”

“Deadprez: HE’S GOT IT! HE’S GOT IT!!!!! BAH GAWD ALMIGHTY HE’S GOT IT!!!!”

“Stew-O: AND EXTREME ENIGMA UNHOOKS THE CITV BRIEFCASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT’S OVER!!!!!”

“( DING! DING! DING! )”

“Announcer: The winner of this match…. AND THE 2009 MR.CASH IN THE VAULT…. EXTRRRRREEEEEEEEEEME…. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEENIGMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! ”

(Voice Over): They have learned. Whether experienced or young, they all know the lessons of this event’s legendary history. It’s not just a wrestling show spanning a weekend. It’s not just a series of the best matches EAW can produce for the entire universe to behold. It is a movement. It is a tradition. It is a chance to define a legacy. It has made men champions, champions legends, and legends immortals.

“(Ding! Ding! Ding!)”

Ring Announcer: The winner of this match… and NEWWWWWWWW… HEAVYWEIGHTTTT CHAMMMPIONNNN OF THE WORRRLLLLLLDDDDDDD…. ROBBBBBB-BIEEEEEE-V!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Deadprez: THE DREAM HAS COME TRUE!!!! ROBBIE V IS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!! HE DEFEATS RRS IN FRONT OF A CAPACITY CROWD HERE IN DALLAS!!!… THE FOURTH ANNIVERSARY OF PAIN FOR PRIDE! THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT TONIGHT AS ROBBIE V PICKS UP THE WIN!!!”

(Voice Over): Epic confrontations. Classic matches. Stunning victories, painful defeats. Everything that we see and feel and experience year after year at this incredible gathering has one lesson that above all must be remembered by those who dare to dream, dare to fight, and defy the odds. Even though the lesson may be bloody, painful, hard, you best pay attention! Because you never know when things may end and the chance to apply its knowledge lost forever…

“(Scott Diamond exits the ring and yanks the apron off of the ring with the “EAW Pain for Pride” logo and rips through it. He’s surrounded by security as he’s screaming)”

“Scott: IT’S!!!!! OVER!!!!!!!!! IT’S!!!!!!!! OVER!!!!!!!! IT’S!!!!!!! OVER!!!!!!”

“(Camera pans over the shocked and dismayed fans in the audience as people are filing out of the arena)”

“(Scott Diamond goes to the side of the ramp and picks up a cable and pulls the plug as the camera cuts to nothing.)”

(Voice Over): What is that lesson? It’s simple: The pain that one feels will eventually heal. It is merely temporary, and unfortunate affirmation of the human condition. Pride is forever. One thing, pain, must be given up in order to obtain something else of value. Everyone talks of glory. What are you willing to give up to attain it?

(“Better Hide, Better Run” by The Glitch Mob ft./Mark Johns plays as a fast-forwarded video of Elitists and Vixens arriving and the beautiful New Miami Stadium quickly fills with fans from all over the world. Highlights of all the buildup leading into the show from Dynasty, Showdown, Battleground, Voltage and the revamped Turbo are shown.)

(The music continues as dimly lit rooms are shown with various elitists and vixens standing face to face with one another.)

(Voice Over): One of the greatest women to ever wrestle will stare at the Future….and look to prove that her time is still now.

(Cameron Ella Ava and Jamie O’Hara face off, Cameron sporting a little smirk.)

(Voice Over): Old scores between bitter foes are settled as Elite, for one brutal moment, will go Extreme once more.

(Scott Diamond and Diamond Cage stare each other down intensely, Scott beating at his own chest wildly.)

(Voice Over): Men made of iron will clash to prove once and for all whose mettle is stronger.

(Jaywalker and Lannister, draped in the German flag, stare into each other’s eyes, fists clenched.)

(Voice Over): Latin Pride will not be the only thing on the line as Champion Faces Challenger for the EAW Interwire Championship.

(Mexican Samurai holds up the Interwire Championship in the face of an unbowed TLA, his face covered with a bandanna.)

(Voice Over): A legend takes his final bow on the greatest stage to do so. One man looks to make sure that he meets his retirement in defeat….and in the process retain his Pure Championship.

(A grinning Carson Ramsey, wearing his Pure Championship stands face to face with Starr Stan, wearing his Olympic medal.)

(Voice Over): Two former World Champions collide to finally conclude a rivalry that the genesis of can be traced over three years ago at this very event. In the end, one must say “I Quit.”

(Jacob Senn and Zach Crash stare each other down, nearly coming to blows.)

(Voice Over): Unlikely partners unite to face a common, twisted enemy hell-bent on conquest and expanding their sadistic reach.

(Hades and Kevin Devastation stand shoulder to shoulder to stare down a laughing Eclipse Diemos and a silent Erebos.)

(Voice Over): Men and women clash in a unique battle of traitors and partners, Champions and Challengers, relative unknowns and future legends. Who will keep their friends close…and their enemies closer?

(The Vixens Team of Cailin Dillon, Tarah Nova, Stephanie Matsuda, Erica Ford and Azumi Goto stand shoulder to shoulder to meet the New Breed Team of JJ Silva, Haruna Sakazaki, Lucas Johnson, Piff Fumador and Venom. On either side, teammates glance uncomfortably at each other, Tarah and JJ both clutching their championship belts.)

(Voice Over): A model of new-era efficiency will face off with one of the standard bearers of the Vixens Division with the Vixens Cup becoming the undisputed property of the winner.

(Sheridan Muller and Kendra Shamez face off, the Vixens Cup trophy on a glass platform standing in-between them.)

(Voice Over): Winner. Take. All. With the men involved, there is no more need for words…. besides perhaps Tables, Ladders and Chairs.

(Drake, Jones, Judas sit across from Pizza Boy, Cyclone, and Brian Daniels in steel chairs, a table separating them….and a ladder leading to both the Unified World Tag Team Championships and National Elite Championships in the background.)

(Voice Over): An Empress on the way to becoming a legend. A ferocious dragon whose greed for gold knows no limits. One looks to further their Hall of Fame Legacy; the other looks to surely cement her status as the leader of the New Generation of Vixens.

(Aria Jaxon and Heart Break Gal face off, the EAW Vixens Championship on her shoulder of Jaxon.)

(Voice Over): A field of hungry participants look to attain a golden ticket to ensure them the fast-track to EAW Superstardom…. while one warrior looks to swoop in and take their shining moment for himself.

(Liam Catterson is shown in a suit, an arrogant grin on his face as he holds the 24/7 contract in his hands.)

(Voice Over): One of the most dangerous matches in EAW history. Eight men daring to dream. Who will claim the right to call himself Mr. Cash in the Vault? The veteran Lioncross? The ruthless Rex McAllister? The brash Angelo? The resilient Tig Kelly? The hard-working Nick Angel? The Sensational Phoenix Winterborn? The Prince of Showdown, Chris Elite? Or The Nas?

(None of the participants are shown. Only a room chock full of ladders, the CITV briefcase resting at the top of the tallest one.)

(Voice Over): Omerta’s Dragon faces its latest challenge to the crown: a beast of a human being looking to finally claim the elusive World Championship he has been so tantalizingly close to before.

(Scott Oasis stands wearing the World Heavyweight Championship in front of Lucian Black, who simply smirks and signals at his waist.)

(Voice Over): A brilliant Prince of a Champion looks to claim the moment that proves he is here to stay amongst EAW’s elite: his coronation to become King. Will he overcome the former ruler of Showdown and another Champion who also wishes to cement his legacy and end eight years of frustration?

(Carlos Rosso, wearing the CWF Championship belt faces off with Aren Mstislav, wearing the EAW Championship, as Victor Vendetta stands in the background, his eyes giving a cold stare straight into the camera.)

(Voice Over): An fanatical Champion must overcome three challengers, three former World Champions, three of the greatest of all time to retain his stranglehold on gold.

(Ares Vendetta is shown standing in the center of a room, dim lighting picking up the features of Y2Impact, Devan Dubian and Tyler Parker surrounding him.)

(Voice Over): The Best in the World. The Best Ever. Two EAW Icons meet in one of the most anticipated clashes in EAW history.

(Xavier Williams and DEDEDE face off in a room much more brightly lit than all the others, golden hues all around as Williams holds up the Hall of Fame championship in the face of his challenger, who angrily slaps it away.)

(Voice Over): Pride has its price. It’s paid for in Pain. Who will be the teachers and who will the students? Tonight we find out! THE TIME IS NOW!

Narrator: AND NOW…. Elite Answers Wrestling proudly presents to you…. THE NINTH EDITION OF PAIN FOR PRIDE, LIVE FROM NEW MIAMI STADIUM!!!!!

( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGmofIZ4vPk )

(The full New Miami Stadium comes into view now, thousands of standing, screaming fans waving flags from countries all over the world and holding signs as pyrotechnics explode from the enormous stage area as well as in the sky above the stadium. )

( Fighter jets piloted by the Blue Angels fly overhead as well, delighting the fans as the fireworks finally cease. As the jets depart, a massive blimp also comes into focus for a moment featuring the EAW and Pain for Pride logos with the banner reading “Time of Your Life” whipping behind it. )

Stew: WE ARE LIVE!!!! WELCOME, PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, TO THE STAGE OF ALL STAGES!!! WELCOME TO THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE!!! WELCOME TO PAIN FOR PRIDE NIIIIINEEEE!!!!!

( MASSIVE red and white pyro and fireworks blast everywhere on this cloudy late afternoon, as the newly renovated New Miami Stadium. )

Jake Mercer: UNBELIEVABLE! UN-BELIEVABLE! THIS IS WHAT WE ALL WORKED HARD FOR FOR SO LONG, THIS IS MAGNIFICENT, THIS IS ILLUSTRIOUS, THIS IS PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

Ring Announcer: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED OR ONE FALL…. AND IS THE MATCH DUBBED “THE BEST IN THE WORLD VS. THE BEST EVER”, TO BE CONTESTED FOR THE HAAALLLLL OFFF FAAAAAAAME CHAMPIOOONNNSHIIIPPPPP!!!

( “Feedback” by Kanye West hits. )

( Smoke gathers at the top of the stage, and Mr. DEDEDE rushes through the smoke wearing his signature trenchcoat over his ring gear as he takes in the energy of the stadium. Tarah Nova walks out alongside him. )

Ring Announcer: INTRODUCING FIRST… ACCOMPANIED BY TARAH NOVA; FROM DENVER, COLORADO, WEIGHING IN TONIGHT AT 224 POOOOOOUUNNNNNDS….. “THE GAWD”, MMMMISSTEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRR DEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

( DDD stops at the center of the ramp and throws up his double corna taunt as pyro rockets up from the stage, and fireworks shoot up from the top of the stadium and into the sky. Following this, DDD and Tarah continue their way to the ring. )

Kawajai: BY MANY ACCOUNTS, HE IS THE BEST EVER. MAKING HIS NINTH STRAIGHT PAIN FOR PRIDE APPEARANCE, A 6 TIME WORLD CHAMPION, 6 TIME MATCH OF THE YEAR AWARD WINNER, TWO TIME ELITIST OF THE YEAR, AND POSSIBLY THE BIGGEST REASON THERE IS A PAIN FOR PRIDE 9! I COULDN’T IMAGINE ANY BETTER WAY TO START THIS TREMENDOUS SPECTACLE, THAN WITH THE GAWD!

Mercer: He’s said he’s more prepared for this match than he’s been for any other match in his career! The accolades cannot be ignored, the greatness cannot be denied, but it is a steep, steep hill for this man to climb tonight. How deep into the will is Mr. DEDEDE going to have to go in order to leave Pain for Pride as Hall of Fame Champion, and better than the Best in the World???

(DEDEDE stands in the ring with his eyes locked up the ramp as the lights slowly shut down throughout the arena as a single spotlight shines down onto the center of the stage. A shroud of white smoke begins to cover the stage and the ramp as a piano with Steven Tyler seated in front of it begins to rise through the stage. He begins to play as the lights throughout the arena suddenly turn back on, revealing glass statues of HRDO, Jaywalker, CM Banks, Lethal Consequences, Y2Impact and the Heart Break Gal.)

“Everytime that I look in the mirror…”

“All these lines in the face a getting clearer…”

“The past is gone….”

“It went back like, dust to dawn…”

(“Dream On” continues to play as Xavier Williams slowly makes his way through the curtain to a THUNDEROUS amount of both cheers and jeers with a sledgehammer in hand.)

“Isn’t that the way…”

“Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay…”

(Xavier Williams stands next to the first statue: HRDO before smashing the sledgehammer through it and it shatters.)

“I know, nobody knows, where it comes and where it goes…”

“I know, everybody sins, you got to lose to know how to win…”

(Xavier Williams slowly makes his way down to the next statue: Jaywalker, and once again it shatters. Xavier continues to makes his way through the statues, smashing through Banks, Lethal Consequences, Impact and HBG, before standing at the bottom of the ramp and dropping the hammer.)

Kawajai: All of the people that DDD has faced at past Pain for Pride’s…

Mercer: XAVIER WILLIAMS SENDING THE MESSAGE THAT THERE IS NO ONE FROM DEDEDE’S PAST THAT COMPARED TO WHAT STANDS BEFORE THE MAN NOW! THE BEST IN THE WORLD! THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION! THE ALPHA! THE OMEGA! AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IF YOU DIDN’T HEAR ME THE FIRST TIME LET ME SAY IT AGAIN!! THE BEST!! BEST!! BEST!! BEST IN THE WORLD!!

Ring Announcer: AND INTRODUCING THE CHAMPION FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN, WEIGHING IN TONIGHT AT 215 POUNDS!!!! HE IS THE SELF PROFESSED “BEST IN THE WORLD!!”… HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!!!!!! XAAAAAVVVVIIIEEEEEEERRRR WIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLIIIIAAAMMSSSSSS!!!!!

(Xavier stands on the apron, both DEDEDE’s and the Hall of Fame Champion’s eyes locked on each other. Xavier Williams makes his way into the ring and slowly backs into his corner as “Dream On” cuts, leaving only the crowd’s atmosphere to be heard. Xavier Williams gives the Hall of Fame Championship one last kiss before handing it to the referee. The referee shows the championship to Mr. DEDEDE before making his way back to the middle of the ring and raising it high into the air. The referee hands the championship to the time keeper before calling for the bell.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Kawajai: The atmosphere I feel right now… it’s something that you only feel a few times in your life if you’re lucky. The first Elitist of the Year against the last Extremist of the Year. The Best in the World against The greatest performer that this business has ever known to lace up a pair of wrestling boots. Xavier Williams against Mr. DEDEDE… both men just standing in their respective corners, soaking every piece of this in. Both the Hall of Fame Champion and the six time World Champion slowly making their way to the middle of the ring, nose to nose; eye to eye. The two exchanging words, but I have no idea what they’re saying. Which man is going to throw the first punch… big smile crosses the face of Xavier Williams as Mr. DEDEDE as they take a step back and slowly begin to circle around the ring; I’ve been waiting for this from the moment that the match was announced. HERE WE GO! The two locking up and Mr. DEDEDE takes the advantage, twisting and wrenches the arm. Xavier dropping down to a knee as DEDEDE applies more pressure, but Xavier beautifully transitions into a hammerlock! DEDEDE wasting no time, firing back with an elbow to the side of the head, stunning the Hall of Fame Champion. DEDEDE with enough time to break free from the grip of Xavier Williams and transitions behind the champion. DEDEDE looking to take the Hall of Fame Champion down with a belly to back suplex, but Xavier’s able to land of his feet. DEDEDE turns around – STRAIGHT INTO A ROUNDHOUSE TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! No, DEDEDE just able to duck underneath and locks the waist! German Suplex! No, Xavier Williams uses his leg to block! Xavier swings back for an elbow of his own, but DEDEDE ducks underneath and tries to take the champion overhead with a Northern Lights Suplex, but Xavier hits him in the chest with a hard knee! Xavier able to fight his way back down to his feet and drives the point of his knee into the stomach of Mr. DEDEDE; Xavier looking to take DEDEDE down with a neckbreaker, but DEDEDE counters with a backslide!

ONE!!…

Mercer: Xavier using the momentum to roll through and takes control with a front facelock! DEDEDE trying to fight his way back to his feet, but Xavier drives the point of the knee into the top of the head. DEDEDE’s stunned as Xavier’s able to transitions around to the back of the former World Champion and isolates the right arm, driving his elbow into the top of the shoulder. DEDEDE trying to work his way into a seated position, but Xavier transitions back around into the front facelock and once again drives the point of the knee into the top of the head. Neither of these men seem to be willing to give their opponent and inch in this match. DEDEDE able to break the grip of Xavier Williams and twists out and applies a front facelock of his own. Xavier able to quickly fight his way up to a knee, but DEDEDE takes him down with a snap suplex! DEDEDE not releasing his grip, dragging a stunned Xavier Williams back up to his feet and transitions behind the champion! DEDEDE looking to send Xavier overhead with a German Suplex, but Xavier uses the leg to block again. DEDEDE driving Xavier chest first into the ropes and looks to roll back into a pin, but Xavier latches onto the top rope! The momentum sends DEDEDE back and he rolls through – STRAIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK! DEDEDE catches the leg and sweep the free one from under the champion! Dragon Screw! DEDEDE keeping a hold of that leg – SHARPSHOOTER!! DEDEDE LOOKING FOR A SHARPSHOOTER, BUT XAVIER QUICKLY DRAG HIMSELF TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! That devious hint of a smile crossing the face of the challenger as Xavier Williams rolls over to the corner. Xavier getting back to a knee as DEDEDE tells him he was that close to submitting the champion on the grandest stage of them all in the opening moments of this match.

Kawajai: I think that the champion is beginning to understand what he’s facing tonight; it’s nothing like anything he’s faced in the past. Xavier getting back to his feet and the two waste little time, locking up once more. This time it’s Xavier Williams who gains the advantage with a side headlock. DEDEDE quickly pushes Xavier into the ropes, gaining momentum and is able to free himself. Xavier hitting the ropes on the opposite side of the ring – and rebounds straight into back body drop! Xavier lands on his feet AND LIFTS DEDEDE UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS THE MOMENT THAT HE TURNS AROUND!! GO TO SLEEP!! NO, DEDEDE JUST ABLE TO PUSH HIMSELF OFF THE BACK OF THE SHOULDERS OF THE CHAMPION!! A smile crossing the face of the champion as he’s more than willing to let the challenger know how close he was to putting that nail into the coffin. Neither Xavier Williams and Mr. DEDEDE able to gain complete control over the other. DEDEDE getting back to his feet and offers the Hall of Fame Champion a test of strength, which Xavier hesitantly accepts. The Hall of Fame Champion’s hand meeting DEDEDE’S, but DEDEDE cuts him off with a kick to the stomach! Xavier caught the leg! Xavier spins DEDEDE around AND CATCHES HIM FLUSH ON THE JAW WITH A BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK! DEDEDE rolling over to the corner, holding his jaw as Xavier Williams backs into the opposite. DEDEDE stumbles back to his feet AND XAVIER WILLIAMS CRUSHES HIM INTO THE CORNER WITH A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! DEDEDE trying to shake out of the cobwebs as he clutches onto the top ropes with both hands, obviously stunned. Xavier Williams with a standing European Uppercut to the cornered DEDEDE! Another! Another! Another! Four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten! Xavier Williams relentlessly fires away at the challenger before dragging him out of the corner and taking him down with a neckbreaker! Xavier Williams getting back to his feet as the arrogant smile returns to his face.

Mercer: Xavier Williams knows how good the man is and he’s not afraid to show it in the slightest! Xavier dropping an elbow to the heart of DEDEDE – it’s been awhile since we’ve seen the man do this! Repeated Elbow drops to the heart of the challenger! Xavier running his fingers through his hair as he takes a deep breathe, soaking in the atmosphere before leaping high into the air and dropping one last big time elbow straight to the chest of the six time World Champion! Xavier Williams holds his elbow across the chest for a pin, but DEDEDE gets the shoulder up before one. Perhaps the arrogance came to hurt the champion there. Xavier laughing as he gets back to his feet, shaking his head; DEDEDE pushing himself back to a vertical base as the Hall of Fame Champion stalks. DEDEDE’s up and he’s met by a stiff spinning back kick to the stomach! DEDEDE dropping back down to a knee and Xavier drives the bottom of his boot into the back of the head of the challenger with a Scissors Stomp! DEDEDE stumbling back to his feet – WHAT A DISCUS FOREARM TO THE JAW! DEDEDE stumbling back into the ropes as Xavier Williams looks to send him up and over with a clothesline! BUT DEDEDE PULLS DOWN THE TOP ROPE AND XAVIER IS SENT OVER AND TO THE OUTSIDE! Xavier landing on his feet – BUT LOOK OUT! VINTAGE DEDEDE! XAVIER WILLIAMS TAKEN DOWN BY A FLYING DEDEDE AS THE REFEREE BEGINS TO COUNT!

ONE!!… TWO!!… THREE!!…

(The camera cuts to a slow motion replay as Mr. DEDEDE leaping over the top rope and connecting with that Vintage DEDEDE.)

Kawajai: Both men are down; DEDEDE still obviously feeling the effects of the opening minutes of this matchup, but wastes as little time as he can, dragging the Hall of Fame Champion back up and rolls him back into the ring. DEDEDE shooting the half, but this time it’s Xavier Williams who gets the shoulder up before one. DEDEDE looking a little shocked, possibly believing that he was going to get a little more out of that pinning predicament. Xavier sitting up and DEDEDE applies a chinlock! Xavier trying to quickly push himself back to his feet and is able to do so. Xavier able to position himself behind the challenger and looks to take him down with a Back Suplex! DEDEDE flipping back and lands on his feet! DEDEDE falling back into the ropes as Xavier turns around – AND ALMOST HAS HIS TAKEN OFF FROM A BICYCLE KICK FROM THE CHALLENGER! Xavier falling down into a heap as Mr. DEDEDE slowly begins to circle the champion. DEDEDE driving the boot into the right arm of the Hall of Fame Champion. A boot to the right knee! A boot the left knee! Now one to the left arm! The hint of a smile returning the face of DEDEDE before he drops the knee across the bridge of the nose! DEDEDE looking to pick the champion apart! Xavier shaking his head as he rolls onto his stomach and pushes himself back onto his hands and knees. DEDEDE dragging Xavier Williams back up to a vertical base; Xavier trying to fight back with a forearm, but DEDEDE cuts him off with a knee to the stomach! DEDEDE grabbing the arm of the Hall of Fame Champion and whips Xavier Williams into the corner! DEDEDE lining up the champion and connects with a running forearm! Xavier Williams stumbles out of the corner as DEDEDE hits the ropes and takes him down with a spinning heel kick! Both Xavier Williams and DEDEDE thus far have been wrestling risk free; doing whatever they can to make sure that they don’t make the first mistake. Xavier Williams holding his jaw as DEDEDE shoots the half!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!… TWOOOOOOO-KICKOUT!!

Mercer: Xavier Williams able to get the shoulder up just before two! The counter wrestling in this match has been nothing but outstanding, but DEDEDE has taken complete control. Xavier slowly rolling across the ring into the corner as DEDEDE stalks. Xavier pushes himself back to his feet and DEDEDE meets him with a stiff chop of the chest! DEDEDE grabbing the arm of the champion and whips him across the ring AND DRIVES THE SHOULDER INTO THE STOMACH OF THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION LIKE AN ABSOLUTE FREIGHT TRAIN! NO, XAVIER JUST USES THE TOP ROPE TO PULL HIMSELF OUT OF THE WAY AND DEDEDE CRASHES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE CORNER POST! DEDEDE caught in the corner before finally dropping to the outside; you can see by the look in the eyes of Xavier Williams, he’s found his opening. Xavier slowly rolling under the bottom rope as DEDEDE drags himself up as he clutches at that arm! DEDEDE’s back to a knee and Xavier Williams hits him with the shoulder with what may have been one of the hardest kicks I’ve seen in years!

ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!…

Kawajai: DEDEDE almost curling over in pain, defiantly pushing himself back up, but Xavier with another unforgiving kick to that injured arm! DEDEDE almost curls over again, but still defiantly pushes himself back up – BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS GRABS HIM AND SENDS HIM CRASHING SHOULDER FIRST INTO THOSE STEEL STEPS! DEDEDE BOUNCES AWAY CLUTCHING AT THAT SHOULDER AS XAVIER WILLIAMS SLOWLY STALKS! Xavier dragging the steel steps out as DEDEDE uses that one good arm to pull himself back to his feet with the help of the barricade. Xavier Williams grabbing a handful of the challenger’s hair and pulls him up the steps! DEDEDE trying to fight away with a right hand to the midsection of the champion, but Xavier cuts him off with a European Uppercut which connects flush on the jaw. Xavier Williams pulls DEDEDE in and traps the arm in that inverted hammerlock BEFORE TAKING DEDEDE OVERHEAD WITH AN ARM TRAP SNAP SUPLEX OFF THE STEEL STEPS! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS FOUND HIS OPENING AND LIKE A SHARK THAT SMELLS BLOOD, ATTACKS IT UNRELENTINGLY!

FIVE!… SIX!…

Mercer: Xavier Williams getting back to a knee as DEDEDE rolls away while clutching onto that shoulder; Xavier rolls into the ring and back out, breaking the referee’s count.

ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!…

Mercer: DEDEDE pushing himself back to a knee AND XAVIER WILLIAMS DRIVES BOTH FEET INTO THE SIDE OF MR. DEDEDE SENDING HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE WITH A RUNNING FRONT DROPKICK! DEDEDE GRITTING HIS TEETH AS HE CONTINUES TO CLUTCH AT THAT SHOULDER; THERE HAS TO BE SERIOUS DAMAGE DONE! A DISLOCATED SHOULDER; A BROKEN ARM – XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS SEEMED TO COMPLETELY TAKE THAT RIGHT ARM OUT OF PLAY!

FIVE!… SIX!… SEVEN!…

Kawajai: That sick smile crossing the face of the champion as he watches his challenger struggle in front of thousands. Xavier Williams grabbing the steel steps and slightly drags them out; DEDEDE using that one good arm to pull himself back up, but Xavier with another brutal kick to that right arm. Xavier grabbing the arm of DEDEDE and grabs him over to the steel steps… you can’t think he’s going to do what I think he is. NO – NO, DON’T DO IT XAVIER! WE SEEN HIM DO THIS TO JAMIE O’HARA BACK IN NOVEMBER! XAVIER TRAPPING THE ARM OF DEDEDE IN BETWEEN THE STEEL STEPS AND THAT STEEL RINGPOST! IF THERE ISN’T SERIOUS DAMAGE DONE TO THE ARM OF DEDEDE NOW, IT’S CERTAINLY GOING TO BE DONE IF XAVIER DOES THIS! THE REFEREE TRYING TO STOP XAVIER, BUT XAVIER PUSHES HIM ASIDE – AND DRIVES BOTH FEET INTO THE STEEL STEPS! DEDEDE’S ARM HAS TO BE BROKEN! NO! DEDEDE JUST, JUST ABLE TO PULL HIS ARM FREE! THERE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN INCHES IN IT!

(The camera cuts to a replay of Xavier Williams trying to crush the arm of Mr. DEDEDE between the steel steps and the ringpost, and DEDEDE freeing himself just in time.)

Kawajai: You can see how close Xavier Williams was from doing some SERIOUS damage to the arm of the former six time World Champion! A scowl crossing the face of Xavier Williams as DEDEDE tries to get the blood flowing to that arm. Xavier Williams with ANOTHER kick to that arm, but this time DEDEDE fights through what has to be excruciating pain AND FIRES BACK WITH A STRAIGHT SLAP TO THE CHEST! MY GOD, I ALMOST FELT THAT ONE MYSELF! Xavier fires back with another kick BUT DEDEDE WITH ANOTHER STRAIGHT SLAP TO THE CHEST – YOU CAN ALREADY SEE SOME OF THE BLOOD VESSELS IN THE CHEST OF XAVIER WILLIAMS HAVE BROKEN! DEDEDE POPS UP WITH A HEADBUTT TO THE JAW! Xavier’s stunned and stumbles back into the steel steps – AND DEDEDE WITH A ROLLING BIG BOOT SENDING XAVIER CRASHING BACK OVER THE STEPS!

EIGHT!… NINE!…

Mercer: DEDEDE just breaking the referee’s count and rolls back into the bottom rope to the outside.

ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!…

Mercer: The back of Xavier Williams caught the edge of the steel steps as he fell backward; blood beginning to flow from a NASTY gash on his back. DEDEDE desperately trying to get that arm back to a point where it’s usable. That right arm just hangs – that shoulder has to be dislocated. DEDEDE hitting his own arm, trying to get some feeling back as Xavier Williams drags himself back up! BUT LOOK AT DEDEDE! DEDEDE CHARGES AND LEAPS OFF THE STEEL STEPS, TAKING THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION WITH A CLOTHESLINE! NO! XAVIER CUTS HIM OFF WITH A DROPKICK STRAIGHT TO THAT ARM! DEDEDE LANDING BADLY; NO MATTER WHAT HE TRIES TO DO, XAVIER CUTS HIM STRAIGHT OFF! DEDEDE clutching straight back at the arm, slamming that good arm on that thin padding that covers the concrete flooring out of pure frustration.

FIVE!… SIX!… SEVEN!… EIGHT!…

Kawajai: Xavier Williams making his way up onto the apron, the face that once carried that arrogant smirk as turned to a look of nothing less than pure focus and determination. DEDEDE uses that good arm to push himself back up to his feet AND THE MOMENT HE DOES, XAVIER WILLIAMS MEETS HIM WITH A SICKENING PENALTY KICK THAT CONNECTS DIRECTLY TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF THE CHALLENGER! THE PURE VELOCITY BEHIND THAT KICK ALMOST CAUSING MR. DEDEDE TO LAND ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! Xavier breaking that count again, there’s absolutely no chance of the man taking a countout victory tonight. The hint of a smile crossing the face of Xavier Williams as he takes a look out at the thousands and thousands in attendance – AND XAVIER WILLIAMS CHARGES AND LEAPS OFF THE APRON, DRIVING BOTH FEET INTO THE CHEST OF THE CHALLENGER WITH A DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP!

ONE!… TWO!… THREE!…

Mercer: Xavier Williams dragging Mr. DEDEDE back to his feet and rolls him under the bottom rope; DEDEDE trying to push himself back up, BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS SLINGSHOTS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND BRINGS ALL THAT BODY WEIGHT DOES ACROSS THE CHEST WITH A HILO! All in the one motion shoots back back to his feet and hits the ropes AND DROPS A JUMPING ELBOW STRAIGHT TO THE HEART OF MR. DEDEDE!

DEDEDE LOCKS THE HANDS, BUT YOU HAVE TO WONDER HOW MUCH STRENGTH HE HAS LEFT IN THAT ARM! DEDEDE pushing Xavier Williams back up onto his shoulders!

ONEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOO!!!

Kawajai: NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS IS ABLE TO BREAK THE GRIP OF DEDEDE AND USES HIS LEGS TO FORCE DEDEDE BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS! DEDEDE IS TRAPPED! HE’S TRYING TO REACH OUT TO THE ROPES; COULD YOU IMAGINE IF MR. DEDEDE WAS FORCED TO SUBMIT AT PAIN FOR PRIDE! DEDEDE ROLLING BACK, BUT HE MAY HAVE JUST GIVEN XAVIER WILLIAMS EVEN MORE ROOM TO PULL THAT ARM BACK! THAT ARM COULD BREAK AT ANY MOMENT! DEDEDE ROLLS BACK FORWARD AND IS ABLE TO LOCK THE HANDS! DEDEDE PUSHING XAVIER BACK ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AGAIN!

ONEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOO!!!!

Kawajai: OH MY!!! DEDEDE POWERS XAVIER WILLIAMS UP AND DRIVES HIM BACK DOWN INTO THE CANVAS!! THAT LOOKS TO HAVE HURT THAT HALL OF FAME CHAMPION, BUT HE REFUSES TO RELEASE THE ARM! DEDEDE POWERS XAVIER WILLIAMS BACK UP; YOU CAN SEE BY THE FACE OF DEDEDE, HE’S IN ABSOLUTE EXCRUCIATING PAIN – AND DEDEDE DRIVES THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION BACK DOWN AND NOW XAVIER WILLIAMS RELEASES THE ARM! DEDEDE just rolling away clutching at that shoulder, finally given some breathing room and the chance to recover. Xavier already rolling onto his hands and knees and begins to push himself back to his feet. DEDEDE trying to do the same, but seems to be struggling. Xavier’s the first back to his feet as DEDEDE makes his way back to a knee AND AGAIN XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH ANOTHER VICIOUS KICK TO THE RIGHT ARM OF MR. DEDEDE! DEDEDE slamming his fist into the canvas as Xavier looks on shaking his head. DEDEDE defiantly pushing himself back up AND XAVIER WILLIAMS ALMOST SLAPS THE TASTE OUT OF HIS MOUTH! Xavier Williams hitting the ropes AND MR. DEDEDE ALMOST TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A CLOTHESLINE! Xavier Williams stumbles back to his feet and DEDEDE meets him with a STIFF, STIFF chop to the chest! Another! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER!

Mercer: DEDEDE backing Xavier Williams into the corner and hits him in the jaw with a straight right hand! DEDEDE grabbing the arm of Xavier Williams and sends him across the ring into the opposite corner AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH AN ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF THE JAW! A stunned Xavier Williams woozily stumbles out of the corner AND DEDEDE TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A RUNNING BIG BOOT! DEDEDE giving the Hall of Fame Champion no room to recover AND DROPS THE LEG ACROSS THE HEAD AND NECK OF XAVIER WILLIAMS! DEDEDE shooting the half!

ONEEEEE!!! TWOO–KICKOUT!

Mercer: Xavier Williams quickly getting the shoulder up BUT DEDEDE GRABS THE ARM AND USES IT TO TURN XAVIER ONTO HIS STOMACH! DEDEDE LOOKING FOR A CROSSFACE, BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO BLOCK IT! DEDEDE HAS THE ARM TRAPS AND IS TRYING TO LOCK THOSE HANDS… AND DOES! CRIPPLER CROSSFACE IS LOCKED IN! MR. DEDEDE REARING BACK AT THE HEAD WITH THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION, WHO’S FORCED TO ATTEMPT TO INCH HIMSELF CLOSER TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! XAVIER WILLIAMS TRYING TO DRAG HIMSELF ACROSS THE RING, INCH BY INCH AS DEDEDE APPLIES AS MUCH PRESSURE AS HE PHYSICALLY CAN! OH MY!! XAVIER WILLIAMS’ SPINE IS ALMOST BENDING LIKE A FREAKING ACCORDION! XAVIER WILLIAMS ROLLING DEDEDE OVER ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!

Kawajai: DEDEDE RELEASES THE HOLD AND THE TWO SCRAMBLE BACK TO THEIR FEET, BUT DEDEDE IS A STEP AHEAD! XAVIER WILLIAMS SWINGS FOR A WILD CLOTHESLINE, BUT DEDEDE DUCKS UNDERNEATH AND HITS THE BACK ROPE! XAVIER SWINGS WITH A BACK ELBOW BUT DEDEDE DUCKS UNDER AGAIN – AND DEDEDE TAKES THE CHAMPION DOWN WITH A VICIOUS LARIAT! NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS USES THE BOOT TO BLOCK THE LARIAT!

Mercer: DID HE GET HIM?!

Kawajai: WOOOOW!!!! DEDEDE JUST KICKED OUT OF THE SURPRISE PIN FROM THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN, BUT EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS ARENA ARE ON THEIR FEET FOR THESE TWO MEN! Both men sitting up and take a look at each other; never man letting the other getting best of each other, and the scary part is that I don’t think this thing is even close to being finished, not while the two of them can still physically breathe. Both men dragging themselves back to their feet; Xavier’s up first and hits DEDEDE in the jaw with a forearm! DEDEDE fires back with one of his own! Xavier with another! DEDEDE fires back! Xavier! DEDEDE! Xavier! DEDEDE! XAVIER! DEDEDE! XAVIER! DEDEDE! THESE TWO MEN JUST FIRING AWAY; NEITHER MEN GOING TO STOP UNTIL THE OTHER FALLS! XAVIER! DEDEDE! XAVIER! XAVIER! XAVIER! XAVIER!

XAVIER WILLIAMS IMMEDIATELY ROLLS DEDEDE OVER ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, AND DEDEDE RELEASES THE HOLD! Both men scrambling back up to their feet, Xavier’s a step ahead of DEDEDE!

Xavier: SUPERKICK!!!!!!

Kawajai: DEDEDE COVERS UP!

Xavier: Just kidding.

Kawajai: XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH A KICK TO THE TOP OF THE KNEE OF DEDEDE, AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Xavier Williams doing look finished as he springboards off the middle rope! LIONSAULT! DEDEDE GETS THE KNEES UP! Xavier Williams clutching at his ribs as DEDEDE gets back to his feet; Xavier stumbles back and DEDEDE lifting him up onto his shoulders, into that Electric Chair position! Xavier Williams with elbows to the top of the head of the challenger, but DEDEDE DROPS XAVIER WILLIAMS THROAT FIRST ACROSS THE TOP ROPE! Xavier Williams grabbing at his throat AND DEDEDE DRIVES BOTH KNEES INTO THE BACK AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A BACKSTABBER! The momentum flipping Xavier back over as DEDEDE kips up back to his feet! DEDEDE making his way onto the apron and begins to make his way up to the top rope. DEDEDE makes his way up top, but somehow Xavier’s there to meet him! Xavier with a forearm, and then a headbutt! DEDEDE fires back with a headbutt! Another! ANOTHER! XAVIER’S STUNNED, ONLY ONE HAND KEEPS HIM ON THE THAT MIDDLE ROPE! DEDEDE WITH A FOREARM AND XAVIER STUMBLES BACK, BUT LANDS ON HIS FEET! DEDEDE trying to steady himself – BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS USES THE TOP ROPE FOR LEVERAGE AND ALMOST TURNS DEDEDE’S LIGHTS OUT WITH AN ENZIGURI! DEDEDE’s hung up on the top rope as Xavier Williams regains his bearings; these two men going at one hundred miles an hour!

Mercer: Xavier making his way back up to the middle rope as DEDEDE tries to push himself up, shaking his head, obviously dazed. Xavier Williams lifting DEDEDE back up and hits him with a forearm, and then a European uppercut. Xavier Williams takes a look out at the thousands in attendance as the hint of a smile crosses his face. DEDEDE seated up on the top as Xavier moves up one more step! Xavier’s looking to send DEDEDE crashing back down with something huge! SUPER HURRICANRANA! DEDEDE SENT CRASHING FROM THE TOP DOWN TO THE CANVAS! NO!! DEDEDE BLOCKING IT!! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS IN A BAD, BAD POSITION!! DEDEDE POWERING XAVIERBACK UP— OH MY GOODNESS!! SITOUT POWERBOMB OFF THE TOP ROPE!! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS IN A BAD WAY AFTER THAT RING RATTLING POWERBOMB! DEDEDE HOLDS THE PIN!

ONEEEEEEE!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEE—KICKOUT!!!

Mercer: NO, XAVIER KICKS OUT! XAVIER WILLIAMS JUST GETS THE SHOULDER UP BEFORE THREE!!

(A replay of a birdseye view of the Sitout Powerbomb and kickout is shown. DEDEDE just lies back as Xavier rolls onto his stomach.)

Mercer: What is willing these two men on; it doesn’t seem to matter what the other does, they continue to dig deeper and deeper. DEDEDE pushing himself back to his feet as Xavier Williams slowly, gingerly pushes himself back to his hands and knees. DEDEDE making his way into the corner, that arm doesn’t seem to be giving him the same trouble that it once did. DEDEDE stalks, we all know what he has in mind, but this time it seems different. There are few times throughout his entire career that I’ve seen Mr. DEDEDE THIS focused. He man staring a hole through the Hall of Fame Champion as he wills himself back to his feet. Stay down, Xavier! You’re not going to like what’s waiting for you! XAVIER’S UP! SPEEEEAAARRRR!!!!! NO, XAVIER CAUGHT HIM IN THAT FRONT FACELOCK AGAIN!! BUT THIS TIME DEDEDE SAW IT COMING AND TWISTS OUT OF IT BEFORE THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION CAN TAKE HIM DOWN! DIAMOND CUTTER!! NO!! XAVIER WILLIAMS CUTS HIM OFF– SLEEPER HOLD! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS THAT SLEEPER LOCKED IN AND WRAPS HIM LEGS AROUND THE WAIST OF THE CHALLENGER! AFTER WHAT THESE TWO MEN HAVE GONE THROUGH TONIGHT, WHAT COULD DEDEDE HAVE LEFT IN THE TANK! DEDEDE QUICKLY BEGINNING TO FADE, TRYING TO REACH OUT OF THE ROPES! DEDEDE DROPPING DOWN TO A KNEE AS XAVIER WILLIAMS SCREAMS FOR THE CHALLENGER TO GIVE UP!

Kawajai: DEDEDE REFUSES TO GIVE UP, SHOOTING BACK TO HIS FEET AND DRIVES XAVIER WILLIAMS BACK FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES, POSSIBLY ONLY PURE INSTINCT! DEDEDE shaking his head as he stumbles forward and Xavier Williams bursts out of the corner! WHAT A LARIAT! NO, DEDEDE DUCKS AND CATCHES THE ARM!! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS SWUNG AROUND – DIAMOND CUTTER! THIS TIME IT CONNECTS! DEDEDE FLOATING BACK OVER AND HOOKS THE LEGS OF XAVIER WILLIAMS! DEDEDE ARCHING BACK… METH LOCK! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS TRAPPED IN THAT METH LOCK! DEDEDE PULLING BACK AT THE HEAD OF XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS! XAVIER WILLIAMS REFUSING TO QUIT; THE MAN SAID IT HIMSELF! XAVIER WILLIAMS WOULD RATHER DIE THAN LOSE TO DEDEDE TONIGHT! BUT XAVIER HAS A LONG WAY TO GO AND I DON’T KNOW TOO MANY MEN THAT COULD ENDURE THIS MOVE FOR TOO LONG! XAVIER WILLIAMS INCHES HIMSELF CLOSER TO THE ROPES; EACH SCRATCH, EACH CLAW GETTING SMALLER AND SMALLER! XAVIER’S STARTING TO FADE; THE PAIN MAY BE TOO MUCH!

Mercer: COME ON, XAVIER!! YOU CAN’T LOSE LIKE THIS!! YOU’RE THE BEST IN THE WORLD!! THE BEST IN THE WORLD DOESN’T GIVE UP!! FIGHT!!

Kawajai: XAVIER WILLIAMS LOOKS TO BE OUT!! WE COULD BE ABOUT TO CROWN A NEW CHAMPION! DEDEDE APPLYING EVEN MORE PRESSURE AS THE REFEREE RAISES THE ARM OF XAVIER WILLIAMS!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: IT DROPS!! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS LIFELESS!! THE REFEREE RAISING THE ARM OF XAVIER WILLIAMS AGAIN!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: IT DROPS AGAIN!! ONE MORE TIME AND WE HAVE A NEW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: IT DROPS!! WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION!!!!!

Mercer: NO!! NO, XAVIER JUST, JUST KEEPS THE ARM UP!! THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION IS STILL IN IT!! XAVIER WILLIAMS DEFIANTLY CONTINUES TO FIGHT ON!! XAVIER WILLIAMS DRAGGING HIMSELF CLOSER THE ROPES!! HE’S SO CLOSE… HE GETS THERE!! HE GETS ONE FREAKING FINGER ON THE BOTTOM ROPE AND DEDEDE IS FORCED TO RELEASE THAT METH LOCK!!

Kawajai: How much did that just take out of the champion; the man COULDN’T have any more in the tank, and I think that Mr. DEDEDE knows that. DEDEDE pushing himself back up onto his knees as the arm of Xavier Williams drops back down to the canvas, both men absolutely exhausted. Xavier Williams slowly, slowly pushing himself back up onto his hands and knees as DEDEDE just stands over the champion. DEDEDE telling the champion to stay down, that this fight is over, but I can’t see Xavier Williams waving up the white flag, not after what the two of these men have been through tonight. One man is walking out of this. Xavier Williams grabbing the tights of DEDEDE, using them to drag himself back up. DEDEDE grabbing a handful of the hair of the Hall of Fame Champion, lifting Xavier Williams back up – WAIT A MINUTE, XAVIER WILLIAMS PUSHES DEDEDE AWAY! SUPERKICK?! NO, DEDEDE SEEN IT COMING, CATCHING THE BOOT OF THE CHAMPION AND SWINGS HIM AROUND! SPINNING BACKFIST! DEDEDE CONNECTS FLUSH WITH A SPINNING BACKFIST TO THE JAW; XAVIER FALLING BACK INTO THE ROPES, THE ONLY THING KEEPING THE MAN STANDING, BUT HE REBOUNDS STRAIGHT INTO A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! NO, XAVIER WILLIAMS DUCKS UNDERNEATH— ROLLING ELBOW!!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH A ROLLING ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL – THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION PUT EVERYTHING HE HAD INTO THAT ONE!

Mercer: XAVIER WILLIAMS DOESN’T ALLOW THE CHALLENGER TO FALL, PULLING HIM IN! REGALPLEX! MR. DEDEDE DROPPED RIGHT ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! XAVIER WILLIAMS PUSHING HIMSELF BACK TO HIS FEET AND LOOK AT THE EYES OF THE CHAMPION! THEY’RE THE EYES OF A MAD MAN! SOMEHOW DEDEDE PUSHES HIMSELF BACK UP ONTO HIS HANDS AND KNEES – AND XAVIER WILLIAMS PUNTS HIM RIGHT ON THE TOP OF THE HEAD WITH THAT HEADSHOT! THE FORCE PUSHES DEDEDE BACK UP ONTO HIS KNEES, BUT HE LOOKS STUNNED, POSSIBLE OUT OF IT! XAVIER WILLIAMS POWERS DEDEDE UP AND TAKES HIM OVER WITH THAT NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! XAVIER FLOATS BACK OVER AND… THE STRENGTH OF THIS MAN SHOCKS ME EVERY TIME I SEE HIM DO THIS!! XAVIER WILLIAMS DEADLIFTING MR. DEDEDE BACK UP INTO THE AIR AND DRIVES HIM BACK DOWN WITH THAT SHEERDROP BRAINBUSTER! BOTH MEN JUST LYING THERE… AND XAVIER WILLIAMS KIPS BACK UP TO HIS FEET!! XAVIER WILLIAMS DEMANDING, SCREAMING, BEGGING DEDEDE TO GET BACK UP, BUT I DON’T KNOW IF THE MAN PHYSICALLY CAN! DEDEDE TRYING TO SIT UP, BUT HE JUST FALLS BACK DOWN ON HIS SIDE, THE MAN IS ABSOLUTELY SPENT!! XAVIER WILLIAMS SPACES BACK AND FORTH, HE CAN TASTE IT!! HE KNOWS THAT HE HAS DEDEDE ON THE EDGE!! DEDEDE SLOWLY, SLOWLY, SLOWLY PUSHING HIMSELF UP ONTO HIS HANDS AND KNEES!!

Kawajai: XAVIER WILLIAMS GRABBING DEDEDE AND DRAGS HIM BACK UP ONTO HIS KNEES!!

Xavier: That’s God.

Kawajai: KING’S FALL!!!!!!! WHAT A SUPERKICK TO THE FORMER SIX TIME WORLD CHAMPION!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

KICKOUT!!!!!!

Kawajai: WHAT?! DEDEDE KICKED OUT?!

(The crowd roars as Xavier Williams stares at DEDEDE in complete disbelief as he slowly pushes himself back and sits in the corner.)

Kawajai: THE FACIAL EXPRESSION ACROSS THE FACE OF THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION TELLS THE ENTIRE STORY!! XAVIER WILLIAMS HIT DEDEDE WITH HIS BEST SHOT AND IT WASN’T ENOUGH TO KEEP THE MAN DOWN!! DEDEDE SAID THAT WE WERE GOING TO GET MORE THAN WE THOUGHT POSSIBLE TONIGHT – HE SAID THAT HE WAS GOING TO BE SUPERHUMAN AND I DO NOT DOUBT IT IN THE SLIGHTEST!! Xavier just shakes his head, I think what the man faces tonight has just finally began to set in. Xavier Williams is going to have to go above and beyond to walk out with that Hall of Fame Champion; to walk out as undoubtedly, the Best in the World. DEDEDE slowly rolling onto his stomach and tries to push himself back up onto his hands and knees. I don’t know what’s keeping this man going, but at this point I don’t know what’s going to keep this man down. Blood dripping from the mouth of the challenger… and he’s laughing? DEDEDE turning his head towards the champion and laughs through that bloodstained smile. It’s as if he’s asking the champion if that’s the best he’s got. Xavier reaches up and grabs the top rope, pulling himself back up to his feet as DEDEDE forces himself back to a knee. Xavier Williams slowly walking towards the champion.

Xavier: Stay down.

Kawajai: Xavier Williams places his boot across the side of the head of DEDEDE and pushes him back down. DEDEDE defiantly pushing himself back up to his hands and knees again, but again Xavier Williams uses the boot to push himself back down.

Xavier: Stay down.

Kawajai: Xavier Williams shaking his head, DEDEDE refuses to stay down as Xavier reaches down and grabs a handful of the challenger’s hair and pulls him up to his feet – AND DEDEDE WITH AN OPEN HANDED SLAP TO THE FACE OF THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!

Mercer: HE MAY HAVE JUST MADE THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF THE MAN’S STORIED CAREER! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS SNAPPED; XAVIER DRAGGED DEDEDE BACK TO HIS FEET AND BEGINS TO DRIVES THAT KNEE INTO THE STOMACH OF THE CHALLENGER! XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH A SPINNING BACKHAND WITH THE LEFT AND SWINGS HIS RIGHT ELBOW BACK, CONNECTING FLUSH TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!! XAVIER FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A STIFF KICK TO THE STOMACH – AND THEN ALMOST TAKES DEDEDE’S HEAD OFF WITH A SWINGING ENZIGURI! DEDEDE DUCKS AND XAVIER WILLIAMS HITS THE CANVAS; XAVIER SCRAMBLING BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT THE MOMENT HE DOES DEDEDE SWEEPS HIS LEGS FROM UNDER HIM!! DEDEDE LOOKING FOR THAT INVERTED SHARPSHOOTER, BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS IS FIGHTING IT! BOOT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF THE CHALLENGER! ANOTHER! DEDEDE STUMBLING BACK INTO THE ROPES, THEY KEEP HIM STANDING AS XAVIER SHOOTS BACK UP! DEDEDE SWINGS FOR A WILD CLOTHESLINE, BUT XAVIER DUCKS UNDERNEATH AND CATCHES THE ARM, SWINGING HIM AROUND!! XAVIER LIFTING DEDEDE UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!!!! HE HAS HIM SET!!! GO TO SLEEP!!!!! NO, DEDEDE FIGHTING IT!! ELBOW! ELBOW! ELBOW! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! DEDEDE FIGHTING IT WITH EVERYTHING HE CAN PHYSICALLY MUSTER! XAVIER DROPPING DOWN TO A KNEE AS DEDEDE SLIDING BACK DOWN ONTO HIS FEET! XAVIER WILLIAMS STUMBLES BACK UP TO A VERTICAL BASE! THE CHAMPION IS STUNNED – AND DEDEDE DRIVES THE BACK OF HIS KNEE INTO THE BACK OF THE SKULL OF THE HALL OF CHAMPION!!

Kawajai: THIS IS DEDEDE’S OPENING!! XAVIER WILLIAMS COULD BE OUT ON HIS FEET!! OH MY GOD!! SPEAR!! SPEAR!! SPEEEEAAAARRRR!!!!!!! DEDEDE LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN, ALMOST BREAKING THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION IN HALF! I DON’T THINK THAT I’VE SEEN DEDEDE HIT THAT SPEAR AS IMPACTFULLY IN MY LIFE!! DEDEDE NEEDS TO COVER, BUT THAT LOOKS TO HAVE BEEN THE LAST THING IN THE TANK!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN; NEITHER MAN HAS MOVED AN INCH!! THE REFEREE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!! BOTH THESE MEN HAVE LEFT ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING OUT THERE TONIGHT AND GOD KNOWS WE DON’T WHAT TO SEE THIS THING END BY A COUNTOUT!! THE REFEREE FORCED TO BEGIN THE COUNT!!

ONE!!…. TWO!!… THREE!!…

Kawajai: DEDEDE SLOWLY, SLOWLY BEGINNING TO STIR; THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION HASN’T MOVED A MUSCLE SINCE THAT SPEAR!! DEDEDE ROLLING ONTO HIS STOMACH, TRYING TO DRAG HIMSELF INTO THE COVER, BUT HE DOESN’T SEEM TO HAVE THE STRENGTH LEFT!

FOUR!!… FIVE!!…

Mercer: XAVIER WILLIAMS FINALLY BEGINNING TO STIR AS DEDEDE REACH OUT, BUT HE’S STILL TOO FAR AWAY TO DRAG HIMSELF INTO THE COVER!! I can’t believe this… Xavier Williams rolls onto his stomach; whether he still has enough wherewithal, or whether it was just instinct, it’s stopped the challenger from capitalizing on one hell of a spear! DEDEDE trying to pushes himself up to his hands and knees as the Hall of Fame Champion pushes himself onto his own. DEDEDE forcing himself onto his knees as Xavier tries to do the same, but clutches down at his ribs. What damage did that spear do? Xavier finally getting back to his feet and DEDEDE meets him with a forearm! Xavier with one of his own! DEDEDE with another! Xavier with another! DEDEDE! Xavier! DEDEDE! Xavier! DEDEDE! Xavier! These two men firing away again! Both men fighting back to their feet as this war for control continues! No matter what they’re going through; no matter the pain, neither man willing to back down or surrender! DEDEDE with a HUGE shot that rocks the champion! Xavier falling back into the ropes and fires back with a STIFF shot of his own! DEDEDE falling back into the ropes and fires back with another! The ropes the only thing seemingly keeping both men upright! Xavier looks to fire back with another – BUT DEDEDE CUTS HIM OFF WITH ANOTHER FOREARM! ANOTHER FOREARM! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN!

Kawajai: DEDEDE JUST FIRING AWAY AT THE DEFENSELESS CHAMPION! Xavier Williams is on jelly legs as DEDEDE lines him in up AND ALMOST KNOCKS THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONS TEETH DOWN HIS THROAT WITH A ROARING ELBOW! SUPERKICK?! XAVIER WILLIAMS CUT HIM OFF WITH A SUPERKICK! SOMEHOW DEDEDE REMAINS ON HIS FEET— END OF HEARTACHE!! ZIG ZAG TO MR. DEDEDE!! DEDEDE BLOCKS IT!! DEDEDE CLUTCHING ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND XAVIER WILLIAMS IS SENT CRASHING BACK DOWN TO THE MAT!! XAVIER STUMBLES BACK UP…. DEDEDE HAS HIM SET!!! BAH GAWD ALMIGHTY!!!!! GRAND SLAM!!! WHAT A RING RATTLING GRAND SLAM TO THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!! THIS HAS TO BE OVER!!! DEDEDE ROLLS ONTO HIS BACK… AND KIPS BACK UP TO HIS FEET!!! YOU COULDN’T THINK…

Mercer: HOLY (CENSORED)!!!! HOLY (CENSORED)!!!!! HOLY (CENSORED)!!!!! ARE YOU READY, KAWAJAI!!! WE HAVEN’T SEEN THIS IN YEARS!!!!! I THINK… I THINK IT’S TIME!!! THESE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE HAVE EXPLODED!! DEDEDE STANDS OVER THE MOTIONLESS BODY OF XAVIER WILLIAMS AND SLOWLY BEGINS TO PULL DOWN THAT ELBOW PAD AND THROWS IT INTO THE CROWD!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT, KAWAJAI!!! THE GAWD HAS RETURNED ON THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL!!!!!! HERE IT IS!! THE MOST ELECTRIFYING MOVE IN SPORTS AND FEDERATIONS!! THE BOTTOMLESS… ELBOW!!! OH MY GOD, IT CONNECTS!! DEDEDE HOOKS THE LEG!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! KICKOUT!!!!!!

Kawajai: I… CAN’T BELIEVE IT! XAVIER WILLIAMS GOT HIS SHOULDER ABOUT HALF AN INCH OFF THE CANVAS, JUST, JUST ENOUGH TO BREAK THE COUNT! DEDEDE IS ALMOST PULLING HIS HAIR OUT; HE THOUGHT IT WAS THREE, I THOUGHT IT WAS THREE, BUT THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION MANAGED TO FIND SOMETHING TO WILL THAT SHOULDER UP!! DEDEDE just sitting there; he reached deep down into his bag of tricks with that Bottomless Elbow, what more is the man going to have to do. DEDEDE looking over at the corner, possible thinking of the one of the few things that has brought him so much justice in the past. Xavier Williams’ eyes completely glazed over as he slowly begins to stir; DEDEDE making his way back to his feet and calls the champion back to his feet.

Mercer: I never once thought that I would say it, but you can feel the Hall of Fame Championship slipping from the hands of Xavier Williams. You can feel that claim of being the Best in the World being ripped away. Both men have left absolutely EVERYTHING out there tonight and they both have to be one big move away from this thing being over. DEDEDE almost stoic; the man is completely focused, blocking out everything around him. This is what the man has made a career out of – moments like this, matches like this. Heart, determination, everything that has made DEDEDE great throughout his entire career showcased on the biggest stage of them all. Xavier Williams gingerly making his way back to a knee as DEDEDE drags him back to his feet AND DROPS HIM BACK DOWN WITH ANOTHER GRAND SLAM!!! THIS HAS TO BE OVER, BUT DEDEDE DOESN’T GO FOR THE PIN, INSTEAD SLOWLY ROLLING UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE ONTO THE APRON!! DEDEDE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE MAN STAYS DOWN; DEDEDE WANTS TO PUT THAT FINAL NAIL INTO THE CASKET!! DEDEDE DRAGGING HIMSELF BACK UP AND NOW HAS TO MAKE THAT LONG CLIMB TO THE TOP!! DEDEDE FORCING HIMSELF UP, EACH STEP MORE DIFFICULT THAN THE LAST!! DEDEDE FINALLY GETS TO THE TOP AND GAINS HIS BALANCE!! THE CHALLENGER HUFFING, PUFFING, WHEEZING AS THE HINT OF A SMILE CROSSES HIS FACE!! HE CAN TASTE IT!! THE CHAMPION HASN’T MOVED AN INCH!! OH MY GOD!! OH MY GOD!! OH MY GOOOOOODDDD!!!! CORKSCREW!!! NORTH!!! STAR!!!!! CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!

Kawajai: XAVIER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, BUT DEDEDE LANDS ON HIS FEET!! XAVIER WILLIAMS SHOOTING BACK UP AS DEDEDE TURNS AROUND — WIDOWMAKER!!!!!! DEDEDE DODGES!! XAVIER TURNING AROUND AS DEDEDE HITS THE ROPES… SPEAR!! SPEAR!! SPEAR!! DEDEDE ALMOST CUTTING XAVIER WILLIAMS IN HALF WITH EVERYTHING HE CAN STILL PHYSICALLY MUSTER!! DEDEDE HOOKS THE LEG!!

ONEEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Feedback” – Kanye West hits as Mr. DEDEDE slowly rolls off of Xavier Williams and is handed the Hall of Fame Championship.)

Kawajai: HE DID IT!!!! HE DID IT!! MR. DEDEDE IS THE NEW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!!

Ring Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…. AND THE NEWWWWWWWWW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!!!!!!!! MISTER… DE… DE… DE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

( Tarah Nova rushes into the ring to hug and kiss a weary, barely conscious Mr. DEDEDE. DDD does all he can to struggle to his feet, and the ref raises his arm as he raises the HOF title with his other arm. )

Mercer: NO!! HOW?! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS THE BEST IN THE… HE COULDN’T HAVE LOST!!

Kawajai: NOT ANYMORE, MERCER!! YOUR MAN – YOUR GUY, THE SELF PROFESSED “BEST IN THE WORLD” HAS FALLEN AGAINST THE GAWD ON THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL!! XAVIER HAS LOST THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY THE THING HE SAID HE CHERISHED MORE THAN ANYTHING!! THAT TITLE – THE RIGHT TO CALL HIMSELF THE BEST IN THE WORLD HAS DIED TONIGHT IN FRONT OF MILLIONS!!

(DEDEDE stands on the turnbuckle as Xavier Williams painfully pushes himself back into the corner, physically frustrated as he drops his head.)

Kawajai: You can see in the face of the former champion of how much this actually meant to the man; a year of preparation leading to the man falling inches short.

(Xavier drags himself under the bottom rope and begins to limp back up the ramp as DEDEDE looks on. Xavier looks back over his shoulder as DEDEDE raises the Hall of Fame Championship before continuing to make his leave with Tarah.)

Mercer: I can’t believe this…

Kawajai: WHAT AN OPENING TO THE FIRST DAY OF PAIN FOR PRIDE, AS WE OPEN THE SHOW WITH THIS INSTANT CLASSIC, AND A VICTORY FROM THE BEST EVER! AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IF THAT WAS ANYTHING TO GO BY, THIS EVENT MAY GO DOWN AS THE GREATEST EVER!!

(DEDEDE continues to celebrate as Xavier Williams walks backstage before cutting away.)

(The camera transitions backstage to an uncomfortable-looking Max A. Million, dressed in a suit with a microphone in hand as he stands in front of a large Pain For Pride background)

Max: Welcome, everyone, to Pain For Pride 9… I’m… I’m here with…

(The camera slowly zooms out to reveal Drake Jaeger and Tiberius Jones – both wearing bath robes – standing on both sides of Max as they impatiently stare at him)

Max: I’m standing here with–

(Drake quickly snatches the microphone from Max’s hand, staring at him intently)

Drake: You need to work on your introductions, Max. I recommend not looking like you’re one bad break-up away from offing yourself. It’s Pain For Pride! TJ, how are YOU feeling?

(Drake thrusts the microphone back into Max’s hand and moves the microphone-in-hand over to Tiberius)

Tiberius: I’m feeling extremely sweaty, thank you for asking.

Drake: Right? This town is Goddamn BROILING, I swear.

Max: Well… You’re both wearing bath robes, so–

Drake: So what? You think we’re wearing these to start a new fashion trend?

(Drake and Tiberius look at each other for a moment before looking back at Max)

Drake: That’s not actually a bad idea, but that’s NOT why we’re wearing them tonight. Max, I don’t know if you know this, but we’ve got an entire fanbase that relishes the thought of what we might show up in at a show this big. We wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise, now would we?

Max: Uh huh… And what about Judas?

Drake: I don’t think I understand the question.

Max: Where’s Judas?

(Drake’s begins to look confused)

Drake: Where’s Judas? How the Hell should I know? He’s probably in the bowels of the building, watching The Crow on blu-ray.

Tiberius: Or listening to My Chemical Romance CDs.

Drake: I bet he only plays Reaper in Overwatch too. You know, Judas is doing whatever people like Judas do.

Max: And you’re fine just talking about him like that?

Drake: What, it’s not like he’s here.

(Drake starts to cautiously look around)

Drake: He’s NOT here though, right? You said he wouldn’t be here, T-Dogg.

Tiberius: Relax, relax, Judas isn’t here, but I’m sure wherever he is, he’s getting ready. He’s every bit as prepared as we are. He’s got a National Elite Championship to defend and we’ve got Tag Team Titles to take back.

Max: So you’re both ready for what’s to come tonight? There’s a lot of people who would find a match like this daunting.

Drake: And that’s why I don’t like a lot of people, Max.

Max: And seeing how all of this began when you two retired the Heart Break Boy, and then you both got involved in The Pizza Boy’s National Elite Title match at Triple Threat, causing him to lose – you can only imagine how much he wants to get his hands on you.

Tiberius: And you know what? We WELCOME it. We weren’t afraid of the Pizza Boy then, and we aren’t afraid of The Pizza Boy now. You think a looking a little banged up and attacking people with weapons is gonna change anything? You know what it certainly won’t change? His size. It won’t change the fact that he’s still a scrawny, hundred-pound little pissant that doesn’t belong in the same ring as us.

Drake: Yeah, besides… We’ve got a secret weapon.

Max: … You do?

Drake: Yeah, yeah…

(Drake leans in)

Drake: What if I told you… The Heart Break Boy himself… Is on OUR side?

(Max’s eyes widen)

Max: No way…

Drake: Yes way… You want proof?

Max: Sure, I guess.

(Drake smiles and nods as he goes off-camera for a moment. Max looks off to the side with an exasperated look)

Max: … Seriously?

(A proud Drake Jaeger steps back into view of the camera, holding up a table with a crudely-painted caricature of the Heart Break Boy on the surface of it)

Drake: Here he is! Feast your eyes!

Tiberius: But wait! There’s more!

(Max sighs as Tiberius goes off-camera and quickly returns with a thick table that has a painting of Judas, Drake Jaeger, and Tiberius Jones murdering Brian Daniels, Cyclone, and The Pizza Boy)

Drake: The Sistine Chapel, the Mona Lisa, and now this! You’re a master of your craft, Ti!

(Tiberius proudly looks at the painting on the surface of the table, knocking hard on it)

Tiberius: And that’s oak, baby! Thick as a Goddamn milkshake! Anyone that goes through this won’t be going through it alive!

Drake: I love it!

Max: Isn’t this a bit much, guys?

Drake: A bit much? A bit MUCH? Max, I don’t think it’s enough! Don’t go doubting us now! Don’t kill our buzz! We–

(A curious Drake puts his ear up to to the caricature of the Heart Break Boy on his table)

Drake: What’s that, HBB? Wha–ohh boy! Oh boy!

(Drake starts to overdramatically shake the table)

Drake: He’s feeling it, Max! He’s feeling the power of the LAWD! The voice of God himself is speaking through him, Max! He’s telling me we’ve got to prove our loyalty! We’ve got to show that we too are good, honest, God-fearing Christian boys! We’ve got to put someone through these tables tonight and help send them on their way to meet the big ghost man in the sky himself! Oh laaawd! I’m feeling it, Max!

Tiberius: Praise Jeebus! Praise the Holy Poltergeist! And we’ve even got a Judas with us! It’s all coming together, Max! You’re witnessing the start of a new book of Genesis!

Drake: And God said “Let their be asskicking, and it was GOOD!” Let’s show them our newfound faith! For our own dearly departed Heart Break Boy!

Tiberius: For the Heart Break Boy!

Drake & Jones: Amen!

(Drake and Tiberius rush off, leaving a confused Max A. Million behind as he looks on)

(The camera transitions back to the packed New Miami Stadium)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is a tag team match and it is scheduled for one fall!

(The lights in the arena shift off as a hush falls upon the crowd. As the lights begin to blink, a sickly yellow color fills the arena and the sound of children laughing can be heard. The titantron flickers for an instant before cutting on as a swing set can be seen, a child wearing a porcelain doll mask is on it swinging.)

Child: Are you afraid?

(Her voice echoes into the night as the camera seems to glitch, when the screen reappears there is nothing left but a tattered cloth hanging on the swing itself. The image transitions to a crossroads for a split second before cutting to the playground once more, as two children play on a seesaw, both faces obscured by the porcelain doll mask, though these are decidedly more blood covered.)

Child: Are you afraid?

Child: Are you afraid?

(They look at the camera and once more the camera itself seems to glitch before the image reappears, cloth draped across the seesaw itself. The crossroads image appears once more, a rocking chair rocking back and forth on it as lightning cracks across the sky. The image cuts out again, this time replaced with a familiar sight. The stage ramp itself. A red light picks up, illuminating not only Jocelyn in a blood soaked porcelain mask, but Oz in a Plague Doctor’s mask, Elise in a broken Queen’s Crown and helm, and Toby in deep red face paint. The group of children all lift up a vial that they hold, roiling with sickly yellow liquid. The titantron cuts to the crossroad image one last time, as lightning cracks across it, illuminating Eclipse. He leans forward in the chair, grinning at the camera.)

Eclipse: Everyone…scared yet?

(Lightning cracks again and the children throw the vials to the ground, the entire stage filling with the roiling yellow smoke as the lights switch off. There is nothing but silence, until…)

Tech N9ne: I’M HELLA MIXED UP YES I KNOW, A LOT OF GOOD AND BAD STUFF AS I GROW, SO NOW THAT I GOTTA LIVE LIFE WITH BOTH ALL I CAN SAY

(The lights quickly switch over to a bright red as Tech N9ne races out from the yellow smoke, looking out as the crowd goes ballistic.)

Tech N9ne: WHAT’S MY NAME?!

Crowd: EBAH!

(EBAH by Tech N9ne plays)

(As Tech begins to perform EBAH for the crowd, Eclipse’s figure steps out from the back, his body garbed in tattered robes and a crown of skulls and barbed wire fitted upon his head. His face is marked with facepaint, spelling out the word: FEAR in bold letters, which seem to resemble a true skull. In all accounts, he appears to the world as the primordial god of fear in every sense. He steps out onto the stage, bowing his head to the audience before slamming his fists into the ground, pyro erupting all around the arena as he rears his head back, roaring up at the sky.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first from Prescott Hills Sanitarium, Arizona! Weighing in at 286 pounds! He is the EAW 2016 King of Elite….”The Bleeding Smile”…….ECLIPSEEEEE DIEMMMOOOSSS!!!

WWEFan: What a crazy entrance from an even more crazy individual. Since this feud began, Eclipse Diemos has made it his mission to rehabilitate Hades The Hellraiser and turn him into what he believes he once was. His way of doing so is by breaking him down both physically and mentally so that he may pick up the pieces and rebuild him in a way he sees fit.

Kawajai: That approach sounds outright psychotic but it seems that there might be a method to his madness as we have slowly seen Hades return to his old ways. Tonight might be the breaking point, right here at Pain For Pride where the pressure is on for every Elitist. When put up against a competitor like Eclipse, that pressure will definitely weigh even heavier. We could finally see a breakthrough on the grandest stage of them all!

(Eclipse slides into the ring towards the corner, removing the tattered cloak and setting the crown aside as he sits down in the corner.)

(The lights in the arena go dim once more and eventually go completely black. A spotlight hits the stage and begins to slowly move up the tron. The spotlight continues its way up to the rafters, where a large, black Crow rests on the safety rail.)

(A shadowy figure emerges behind the crow. The figure wears a black, expressionless mask and black hooded cloak.)

(The man points off into the distance, and the crow flies away. The man slowly removes his hood, revealing the face of Erebos!! The fans erupt, but those cheers turn to boos rather quickly. Erebos sheds the jacket and pulls himself up onto the safety rail. He looks around…and takes a step off…)

(The spotlight follows Erebos as he descends from the rafters. He lands in the middle of the ramp. The second his feet touch, bright red lights fill the arena, and “Nightmare” by Avenged Sevenfold plays over the P.A.)

Announcer: Aaaaand his partner…from TARTARUS….weighing in at two hundred and forty pounds….THE PRIMORDIAL GOD OF DARKNESS…..ERRRRRRRRRRRRREBOOOOOOOOOOOS!!!

WWEFan: Erebos is coming from above in fantastic and perhaps to some, even frightening fashion. This may be Erebos’ first Pain For Pride but it’s no different to him, this is just another opportunity for him to allow the darkness to spread and infect EAW – this time infecting two men he considers relics who once carried his very message of darkness.

Kawajai: We have seen a much darker side from Erebos in recent weeks and it turned even worse last week when he exploded like never before and ended up trying to choke the life out of Hades the Hellraiser! This match is personal! He may not be with Eclipse on bringing these two back to top form, but he is definitely with the idea of breaking them down!

(Erebos slowly stalks to the ring and climbs the steps. In one fluid motion, Erebos steps through the ropes and up onto the second turnbuckle. Erebos raises his arm…and the Crow lands on it. The music fades out as Erebos steps down into the ring and stands beside Eclipse Diemos.)

(The arena goes to complete blackness, as three spotlights are seen around the arena, all shining down on a small stage. On each stage there is a large box sitting on it, as the music starts.)

“What of the dollar you murdered for…”

“Is that the one fighting for your soul…”

“Or your brother’s the one that you’re running from…”

“But if you got money, fuck it, because I want some”

(The boxes all lower into there respective stages as Big Sean, Jay Z and Kanye West are all shown on their individual stages, as www.youtube.com/watch?v=h19x8Wqpkq8 plays throughout the arena.)

(The entire stage, along with most of the arena begins to have smaller spotlights everywhere, showing men dressed like KD, women dressed like Amie Devastation, older men dressed in suits like Gio, and some dressed like Dark Emperor.)

(More spotlights show around the arena as men dressed like Ricky Razor, Adrian Christ, Mr. Blood and other underlings Kevin Devastation has used over the years. 1000’s of smaller spotlights surround a dark arena show them all.)

(One final giant spotlight appears center stage as Kevin Devastation is shown standing next to the real Amie, Gio, DE, Ricky, Adrian, Blood. All throw up a Kliq symbol as Kevin Devastation smirks, and begins to make his long walk to the ring with Amie by his side.)

Ring Announcer: And their opponents, introducing first from Paradise Island, by way of Charlotte, North Carolina! He weighed in at 285 pounds! He is “The Lone Legend”…..KEEEEEVVVIINNNN….DEVASSTAAAATTTIOOONNNNNNN!!!!

WWEFan: Well at least we know it’s the same old KD. The guy may be cocky but don’t let this entrance fool you, he’s an amazing competitor, a former World Champion and a Hall of Famer! The guy has it all, definitely one of the most complete Elitists out there.

Kawajai: It’s great to have him back honestly, he definitely shocked the world when he came out of retirement to aid Hades but it was certainly needed to even the odds. Kevin is all about respect and that lack of it toward a fellow Hall of Famer set him off for sure. He’s out here with a purpose and that’s to show that the old guard isn’t going to fall behind and take crap from the new breed!

(All the spot lights begin to converge from the people around the arena to just KD, as he walks to the ring as pyro goes off all around this open arena. The word Kliq posted everywhere, and above the ring a giant Kevin Devastation banner unfolds above.)

(Kevin Devastation enters the ring, and shows off the HOF Ring he has one last time before taking it off, kissing his wife Amie and handing it to her. Kevin throws up one last Kliq sign as all the 1000’s of the Kliq also does around the arena.)

(The fans begin to murmur…Kevin Devastation just smirks…)

(The lights go off.)

(Every member of the audience is on the edge of their seats, not daring to make a sound.)

(A motorcycle revs, and the tron illuminates in a blinding flash. The fans lose their minds. After the revving dies down, a line of SWAT members exit through the curtain. One by one, they file out and line the entrance ramp. By the end, twenty SWAT members line the ramp. They stand on opposite sides and turn to face each other, hitting their batons rhythmically against their riot shields. Bam Bam Bam Bam BAM…)

(With one final hit, the lights go out and “Wanted Man (Acoustic)” hits the P.A.)

(The curtain flies open, and out rides HALL OF FAMER HADES THE HELLRAISER! The fans are on their feet as Hades revs his custom Harley Davidson a few more times. He smirks and raises a fist…then begins his ride down the ramp.)

Announcer: AND HIS PARTNER!! FROM DEVIL TOWN, NORTH CAROLINA…..HE IS A 2016 EAW HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE….LADIES AND GENTLEMEN….HAAAAAAAAAADES….THE……HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLRAIIIIIIIIISERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

WWEFan: The big dog is here and he is ready to defend his yard from those who dare to step upon it! He’s coming down to the ring with fire in his eyes ; fire that I have never even seen from Hades. These two have made Hades put up with so much BS but tonight he has the chance to do away with them and do it on the platform that he’s always been known to perform greatly at: Pain For Pride!

Kawajai: You have to think that Hades is riding high right now, he has so much momentum and is making his way to that ring with an expectation to meet! Last night he got inducted into the HALL OF FAME, joining his partner Kevin Devastation in the prestigious group! These two are proven to be students of the game, they love a good brawl, and are very bad men when it comes to being inside that ring. We’re looking at a dream team right now and if I were The Sanatorium even I would be worried!

(Hades rides around the ring, past the on-looking Sanatorium, and back to the ramp. He stops the bike and swings his tree-trunk leg over. Hades effortlessly climbs into the ring and steps over the top rope. He throws his right fist into the air, which prompts fireworks and pyro to go off around the ramp and rafters. Hades removes his Hall of Fame shirt and throws it into the audience as the music fades out…)

Kawajai: Here we go, all four men are finally in the ring as this match is ready to begin!

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: The bell has rung and this match is underway! The atmosphere right now is intense, Hades has been tormented by these guys for months and is obviously heated as Kevin Devastation remains calm and tries to restrain him! Hades listens but Eclipse Diemos is doing no favors for him. Look at him just staring across from Hades sporting that grin of his, chuckling at him right now! The teams need to decide who is starting, the referee is growing impatient and is beginning a count. Kev does not want to risk Hades coming in angry so he convinces him to head to the sidelines while Eclipse puts out his arm and motions for Erebos to let him have this! KD and Eclipse Diemos are face to face in the middle of the ring as Kevin mocks him and — OH! Eclipse slaps Kevin Devastation right in the face and things turn serious! He grabs Kev by the hair and SLAMS his face directly into his knee! Kevin Devastation falls back in a daze but makes a recovery on his feet!

Kawajai: Not for long though as Eclipse backs into the ropes and comes back with a running shoulder block that sends Kevin falling into the ropes himself, grabbing onto the middle one to keep himself from hitting the mat! Eclipse Diemos barrels into him with a battering ram like dash to the chest! He backs away again, this time even farther and comes in like a bull! DIRECTLY INTO A BOOT! ECLIPSE’S BATTERING RAM ATTACK CAUSES HIM TO GO HEAD FIRST INTO KEV’S BOOT AS YOU CAN HEAR HIS SKULL CRACK! Eclipse Diemos falls down and is met with a roundhouse that catches him in the mouth! Kevin Devastation follows it up with a leaping elbow drop to the sternum!

WWEFan: Eclipse Diemos rolls over and then pushes himself up to his feet as Big Kev cocks back his fist and pops him in the face! Eclipse Diemos winds back and responds with a throat thrust that leaves Kevin gasping for air! Eclipse comes dashing for him but with Kevin’s one free arm he shows some surprising agility for a guy his size with an arm drag as the crowd gives him props! He raises up his fist and he is feeling the ovation as he turns back around! Watch out! Running crossbody by Eclipse Diemos that takes him down as he heads over to the corner and tags in Erebos who jumps over the ropes and drops his knee across Kevin’s face! Kevin sits up and is hit in the spine and then dragged up! Erebos has the hair and drags Kev with him as he runs! RUNNING BULLDOG! Kevin Devastation gets up and puts his fists up to get back to fighting but Erebos evades him and pushes him into the corner of his partner!

Kawajai: Erebos WANTS Kevin to tag in Hades!? Erebos, stone faced as ever looks on as Kevin gives the go-ahead to Hades and tags him in! The two are face to face! Hades and Erebos have their gazes fixed upon one another as — HADES PUTS HIS HAND AROUND EREBOS’ THROAT AND EREBOS DOESN’T EVEN FLINCH AS HADES GRIPS HIM! CHOKESLAM! EREBOS LOOKS LIKE HE WAS DAMN NEAR DRIVEN THROUGH THE MAT WITH THAT CHOKESLAM AS HADES GETS UP AND LETS OUT A SHOUT! Hades laid him out just like that and — WHAT IN THE HELL!? Erebos is already getting up! Erebos stands up straight and looks at Hades, barely even hurting!? We’ve seen Erebos do things like this before but not in a long time! Hades is at first unsure of himself but now we’re starting to see a smirk from him, I think he likes this challenge!

WWEFan: Erebos has no urgency as he slowly walks to Hades! Hades is in a stance ready to fight! RIGHT FROM HADES! A LEFT! EREBOS LEANS BACK AND THEN SHUFFLES TO THE SIDE TO GET OUT OF DODGE FOR BOTH BLOWS! HE TAKES HIS HAND AND PLACES IT AROUND HADES’ FACE, SHOVING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! Erebos backs away! BIG SPLASH INTO THE CORNER AS HE BACKS AWAY FOR A SECOND SPLASH! BUT WAIT! HADES FOLLOWS HIM AND DELIVERS A CORNER ATTACK OF HIS OWN! CLOTHESLINE! Erebos goes out of the corner and walks right into a sidewalk slam! Hades gets up but already Erebos is rising to his feet too! Hades is up first and clubs him in the back but Erebos just catches him with an uppercut to keep him at bay!

Kawajai: That blow might have woke Hades up as he cracks his neck and goes back to work! A fake out as he forces Erebos to retreat from a shot to the face and instead catches him with a body shot! Multiple body shots now as Erebos is pressed into the ropes and is now taking shots after shot! Eclipse Diemos goes to intervene but takes an elbow shot to the face which nearly knocks him off of the apron! Hades goes back to Erebos and catches him running toward him! BACKBODY DROP! NO! EREBOS LANDS DIRECTLY ON HIS FEET! NECKBREAKER! Erebos is stalking Hades now, watching and waiting for his next move while he gets to his feet! Hades gets up and Erebos goes behind him as he is looking to deliver that Scorpion Death Drop of his ; the move he calls The Pitch Black! Hades struggles though as he twists Erebos’ around and pulls him in by the wrist into the spinebuster!

WWEFan: Hades is back in this as this move seems to have done the trick! Erebos is hurting and there is a delay in his step while he attempts to return to a vertical base! Hades does a cut throat motion and yells at him to get up, egging him on as he is closer and closer! Hades sees Erebos fully get up and heads to him, but then hang on! Eclipse Diemos has him by the singlet and reels him in, dragging him over the top rope and then tumbling into the floor! Come on! Hades is caught completely by surprise as Eclipse kicks him while he’s down and bumps him into the steel steps! Eclipse Diemos brings the dazed Hades up to his feet now as Erebos hauls it up to the top rope! HE GOES FLYING ON TOP OF HADES, HADES IS DOWN!

Kawajai: Eclipse Diemos and Erebos celebrate with one another but there will be no time as Kevin has moved around the ring and is now behind them on the apron! NO WAY! Kevin leaps off of the apron and pulls both of them down by the head for a DUAL DDT ONTO THE HARD ARENA FLOOR! Those floor mats are paper thin almost and that fact is evident from the splat we heard upon impact as their craniums hit the ground! Kevin goes to help Hades up but there is no need as Hades is already moving and giving out instructions! He’s telling Kevin to hold them while he rolls back into the ring! KD listens and pulls them both up, letting them have a quick meeting of the minds to keep them stunned before having his arm around both of them to keep them together!

WWEFan: I’m wondering what Hades has in mind here! Hades looks around at this sold out crowd, doing a scan of the audience as he hears them roar! He hits the ropes! OH MY GOD! HADES THE HELLRAISER GOES OVER THE ROPES AND DELIVERS A SUICIDE DIVE STRAIGHT FROM THE HEAVENS!

Kawajai: Heavens? That seemed more like hell for his opponents! Kevin Devastation seems to have got caught in the crossfire there and even Hades is in pain! Then again who can blame him as he fell like a meteor at incredible velocity through those three! This is what Hades is willing to risk for his pride, for his reputation, for immortality! He can barely stand as he gets up with assist from the barricade and approaches a downed Eclipse as — OUCH! SPEAR FROM ECLIPSE DIEMOS DRIVING HIM DEEPER INTO THAT CROWD RESTRAINT! Hades falls forward at the bottom of the ramp and Eclipse Diemos does a quick roll into the ring as he appears to be threatening the referee to slow down his count before getting back out and revisiting Kevin! Kevin is looking to fight back but Erebos from behind grabs him and delivers a Russian leg sweep, sacrificing himself as the back of his head bounces off of the floor as well! Eclipse Diemos looks down at the three fallen men and abruptly turns his back on them, walking up the stairs and hitting the apron! You don’t think….

WWEFan: Nah, nah, not happening! He goes into the ring and backs into the corner opposite to where all of the carnage is to watch them get up. I thought he was about to go high risk for a moment but it seems that won’t be the case as…..wait a minute! YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!? ECLIPSE DIEMOS RUNS ACROSS THE RING, USES THE ROPES TO SCALE UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND HITS A SENTON INTO THE THREE OPPONENTS! A BIG DIVE DELIVERED TO PERFECTION! HE CAUGHT THEM OFF GUARD THERE WITH HIS HESITATION! ECLIPSE DIEMOS LOOKING TO TOP HADES THERE AS EVERYONE HAS BEEN WIPED OUT! I NEVER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT ECLIPSE WOULD HAVE HAD IT IN HIM BUT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN SOMETHING HE WAS SAVING JUST FOR TONIGHT! JUST LOOK AT HIS FACE! HE IS FLAT ON HIS BACK, NOT GETTING UP, YET IS STILL LAUGHING!

Kawajai: He is feeling confident after that! He gets up and brings Hades to his feet so that he can toss him into the ring! Erebos follows suit upon Eclipse’s instruction and grabs him by the hair as he gets in the ring, pulling him in! NO! HADES WITH A BACKFIST! Hades turns around for a follow up — INTO A SPINNING SIDE SLAM! THE GATES OF TARTARUS! EREBOS IS BACK IN CONTROL NOW! He stands over Hades as he takes his two thumbs and goes to DRIVE them into HADES EYEBALLS! HADES HAS TO STOP HIM AS EREBOS LEANS IN FOR A HEADBUTT AND THEN BITES AT THE FOREHEAD! THE REFEREE IS WARNING HIM AS HE BEGINS A FIVE COUNT!

Referee: Enough Erebos! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Kawajai: Erebos finally backs off and leaves Hades be but keeps him in his sight while he gets back up! SCORPION DEATH DROP! THE PITCH BLACK AND THIS TIME IT CONNECTS! EREBOS HOOKS BOTH LEGS OF THE BIG MAN AS HE GOES FOR A COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEE…….TWOOOOOOOO………THRRRRR —

WWEFan: KEVIN DEVASTATION BREAKS IT UP WITH A LEG DROP TO THE NECK OF EREBOS! Eclipse Diemos runs in to help out but then there is Kevin with a Thesz Press as he leans in with heavy rights! Hades feebly takes his hand and grabs Kev’s foot, yanking at it for his attention as he tells him to put Eclipse on the apron! Kevin pushes Eclipse onto the apron with his foot and grabs the hand of Erebos, dragging him off and leaving him to make a tag as the referee tells him to go to the corner himself! Hades can barely stand as he gets up on wobbly legs and motions for Eclipse to get up and head to him!

Hades: (without mic) This is what you wanted Eclipse! You and me! Get up and fight me like a man!

WWEFan: Eclipse Diemos is doing just that as he crawls into the ring, still a bit disoriented but not bothered as he looks upon Hades and is now happier than ever! This is what he wanted! He gets up and gets settled in as now both men have recovered and stand across from one another! Finally after all of this time they are face to face in a match! They don’t even wait, they just run up and lock horns in a mess of rights and lefts! The two wind up falling against the ropes! Eclipse digs his knee into Hades’ gut with major force but Hades pushes him off onto the mat in response! Eclipse quickly gets up! LARIAT BY HADES,TURNING THE BIG MAN INSIDE OUT! Hades drags Eclipse up! He has him slung over his shoulder and heads to the corner! SNAKE EYES BY HADES! ECLIPSE’S HEAD BOUNCES OFF OF THE TURNBUCKLE AND HE IS RUN DOWN BY HADES’ BIG BOOT SOON AFTER! HADES GOING FOR A QUICK COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEE….TWOOOOO…….KICKOUT!!!

Kawajai: Eclipse Diemos gets the shoulder up just in the knick of time! Eclipse Diemos is now going to roll off for some distance but Hades follows him and grabs him by the shirt! OH! Eclipse suckers him in with a drop toe hold that leads to Hades falling throat first into the ropes! He staggers into Eclipse’s grasp! RUNNING STO! Hades is down on his back as Eclipse stands himself up on the middle rope! FLYING AXEHANDLE AS HADES GETS UP ONTO HIS FEET! Hades manages to stay on a vertical base but soon his legs are taken out from under him and he is spun around in a giant swing! Round and round Hades goes as WOAH! Hades pulls Eclipse in mid-swing! HE’S GOT HIM IN THAT TRIANGLE CHOKE OF HIS! HE’S YANKED ECLIPSE DOWN AND GROUNDED HIM IN THAT SUBMISSION! HADES IS SQUEEZING WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT! ECLIPSE DIEMOS IS LOOKING FOR A MEANS OF ESCAPE AS HE GRABS HADES BY THE PANT LEG AND PULLS HIM UP! BUCKLE BOMB WITH AN ASSISTED KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD BY EREBOS!

WWEFan: Eclipse Diemos then goes for a Samoan drop attempt but Hades floats over! OH! HE’S LOOKING TO GO FOR A BRIMSTONE PILEDRIVER HERE! ECLIPSE DIEMOS SLIDES OFF! GLASGOW SMILE! NO! HADES CATCHES HIM WITH A CHOKESLAM! Hades rolls over and tags in Kevin Devastation who comes in with his hands ready! He’s behind Eclipse! THE FINAL ATONEMENT! THE FINAL ATONEMENT CONNECTS HERE! KEVIN DEVASTATION HOOKS BOTH LEGS TO WRAP THIS UP FOR HIS TEAM!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEE……TWOOOOO……THRRRRR —

Kawajai: Erebos dropped off of the apron and socks KD in the face from the outside to stop it! That was a hard right! Erebos hops back onto the apron and Eclipse tags him in! Kev is on his knees and that makes the playing field even for Erebos who nails him with a picture perfect dropkick! Erebos showing some incredible strength here! SNAP SUPLEX ON BIG KEV! Kev’s legs are still up in the air as Erebos goes by and grabs them! HE’S TURNING KEVIN OVER! THE DARKNESS WRATH! THE DARKNESS WRATH IS LOCKED IN AND TEARING AT THE LEGS OF KEVIN! YOU TAKE AWAY THE LEGS FROM A GUY LIKE HIM AND YOU TAKE OUT EVERYTHING! EREBOS PULLING BACK WITH ALL HIS MIGHT — AS HE STOMPS ON THE BACK OF KEVIN’S HEAD SIMULTANEOUSLY! OH MY GOD THAT IS BRUTAL! ENOUGH! HADES DECIDES TO GO THROUGH THE ROPES BUT THE REFEREE IS TELLING HIM NO!

WWEFan: Hades doesn’t care, he has to help and so he pushes the referee to the side and mows Erebos down to stop it! Erebos falls forward and tags back in Eclipse Diemos who shoots through the ropes and this time his Glasgow Smile connects on Hades as he attempted to duck underneath it! Hades goes to the outside as it is now Eclipse Diemos and Kevin Devastation left as the two legal men! Kevin could be concussed after those brutal stomps by Erebos but no matter as he still has his fighting spirit left within! Kevin gets up and is asking Eclipse Diemos to bring it on! Eclipse has no problem doing that! AVALANCHE IN THE CORNER! BACK SUPLEX AS A FOLLOW UP! Kevin Devastation is down as Eclipse awaits his return to his feet!

Kawajai: That one tag has been a game changer as now things are falling into place for The Sanatorium! Eclipse Diemos is pacing himself in the corner ; absolutely losing his mind as he chomps at the bit to see Kevin get up so that he may finish this! Kevin Devastation is making the slow climb to his feet and with each agonizing second Eclipse is growing more and more impatient! Kevin is finally up but not much is going on upstairs! All he needs to do is turn around!

Eclipse Diemos: You should have never got involved Kevin!

Kawajai: ROOM 13 BOOT BY ECLIPSE! WHAT!? IT’S CAUGHT! EXPLODER SUPLEX BY KEVIN! THAT MUST HAVE BEEN INSTINCT, IT HAD TO BE! KEVIN DEVASTATION CAN BARELY EVEN GET UP FOLLOWING THAT, HITTING THE MOVE WAS EVEN MORE STRENUOUS! Kevin turns over and forces himself up but Eclipse is getting up too! WOAH! Kevin puts his hands under Eclipse and lifts him up! HE GOES UP HIGH FOR A GORILLA PRESS SLAM! Kevin may have a chance to finish this here but EREBOS! EREBOS REACHES OVER AND WITH HELP FROM THE ROPES, HITS A MODIFIED VARIATION OF THAT SCORPION DEATH DROP! Erebos now heads to the corner and is looking to climb up for a high risk entrance into the ring but wait just a minute! HADES IS THERE TO STOP HIM!

WWEFan: Hades with a hit to the back that takes Erebos off balance as he goes under and grabs him by the legs in powerbomb position! No! No, NO! THE LAST CALL! THE LAST CALL AS HE LOOKS TO SEND EREBOS FLYING TO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE — NO! EREBOS IS CLINGING ON! HE’S FIGHTING IT! EREBOS GETS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND GETS ON THE APRON TO SAVE HIMSELF! HE SWINGS AT HADES BUT HADES CATCHES THE HAND! OH! THEN THERE’S KEVIN WHO PUSHES ECLIPSE INTO EREBOS! HADES PUT EREBOS’ HAND UP AND IT MAKES CONNECT WITH ECLIPSE!

Kawajai: We got a tag there as Kevin Devastation grabs the ropes and slingshots Erebos into the ring while Hades goes around the ring to his corner! Kevin Devastation heads to him! A TAG IS MADE ON THEIR SIDE! Hades is in the ring and waits for Erebos to get up! CHOKESLAM TO EREBOS AND HE STAYS DOWN FROM THIS ONE! Hades isn’t even done either! He scrapes Erebos off of the canvas and then turns him over onto his shoulders! HE DROPS HIM ON HIS HEAD WITH A BRIMSTONE PILEDRIVER! COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Wanted Man” by Rev Theory plays as Hades gets up and stands over the body of Erebos. Kevin Devastation gets back into the ring and pats him on the back, offering for a handshake and raising Hades hand soon after.)

Ring Announcer: Here are your winners………HAAAAAADES THE HELLRAISEEEERRRRR AND KEEEEVIN DEVASTAAATTTIONNNNNN!!!!

WWEFan: They did it! The Hall of Fame duo has managed to put away The Sanatorium! There was a lot of doubts ; these two have been going at it for a while and many thought they might not have it in them, but when the lights shined bright and the grand stage of Pain For Pride presented itself these two proved that they had another battle in them.

Kawajai: More than another battle in them, these two still got it! The last two outlaws in town entered a duel with the Devil and the God of Darkness and walked away victorious. That tells you something! These guys didn’t need any rehabilitation, they were more than ready to show their dark sides and get their hands dirty.

WWEFan: Indeed! What a moment this is! Two titans standing in the ring after a hard fought match! That’s Pain For Pride for you folks! Kudos to not just them but The Sanatorium as it seems even Eclipse right now is watching on!

Kawajai: Eclipse may have lost but in a way he won at the end! Hades returned to top form tonight and that’s what he wanted! It took a lot to do so but he got it! Not just Hades, but KD did awesome!

(Hades does a cut throat motion as he looks outside of the ring at Eclipse Diemos and Kevin Devastation taunts him from behind before pumping up his fist and drawing excitement from the crowd as he calls for Hades’ attention and suddenly his mood changes.)

WWEFan: WOAH! WHAT THE HELL!? KEVIN DEVASTATION JUST SWUNG AT HADES WITH HIS FIST AND KNOCKED HIM DOWN! WHAT IN THE WORLD!? KEVIN DEVASTATION IN STOMPING ON HIM, NOT LETTING HADES GET UP! HADES HAS A LOOK OF CONFUSION IN HIS EYES AS KEVIN JUST CONTINUES WITH THIS BEATING! BOOT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD BY KEVIN! HADES TRIES TO GET UP BUT THEN THERE’S A PENALTY KICK TO THE STOMACH!

Kawajai: Why is he doing this? Why after such a great match these two had? Kevin Devastation backs away for a moment and leans in, watching Hades get up! Hades is trying to drag himself up using Hades as he looks up at him! Staring into his eyes as Kevin coldly looks on! HADES REACHES OUT HIS HAND FOR KEVIN DEVASTATION’S THROAT! NO! KEVIN PUSHES HIM AWAY! KICK TO THE STERNUM! FINAL ATONEMENT! THE FINAL ATONEMENT TO HADES! KEVIN GETS UP TO HIS FEET AND STARES OVER THE BODY OF ONE OF OUR LATEST HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES! HADES HAS BEEN LAID OUT BY HIS PARTNER KD AFTER ALL THEY’VE BEEN THROUGH! WHAT WAS THE MEANING OF THIS!?

(Kevin Devastation stands over the body of Hades, sarcastically clapping as he says something inaudible)

WWEFan: He’s lost it! Kevin Devastation has just HUMILIATED Hades – what reason could he possibly have for this?!

Kawajai: He should have known better than to trust Kevin Devastation, Fan! I knew from the get-go that Kevin wouldn’t offer his help if he didn’t want something in return! Looks like he got what he REALLY came for!

(Kevin begins to take his leave as Hades struggles to get up, still in pain. Kevin stops himself at the ropes and turns back to look at Hades once more)

WWEFan: No… Hey, come on! You got what you wanted, leave it at that!

(Kevin goes back to Hades, reaching down and grabbing him by the throat as he drags him back up to his feet)

Kawajai: That look of HATE in the eyes of Kevin! He loathes this man! KEVIN PICKS HIM UP NOW! BRIMSTONE PILEDRIVER!!!! KEVIN DEVASTATION LAYS OUT HADES THE HELLRAISER WITH A BRIMSTONE PILEDRIVER OF HIS OWN, MOCKING THE MANNERISMS OF HIS FALLEN PARTNER!!

WWEFan: Absolutely disgusting.

(Kevin kicks Hades to the side and goes through the ropes, walking down the ramp as he passes Eclipse and Erebos who even seem to be shocked as he carries on and tries to regain his composure. A chorus of boos come his way as we fade elsewhere.)

(The camera pans backstage… where The Pizza Boy is seen preparing for his match, he tapes up his wrist, then puts on his black leather jacket, before the door behind him is heard opening.)

???: You don’t know how proud I am of you.

(The Pizza Boy eyes widen, his face seems a little bit shocked, as he turns around to hear a familiar voice, the camera revealing… The Heart Break Boy grinning at The Pizza Boy.)

The Pizza Boy: Holy overpriced delivery fee’s… it can’t be, it really can’t…

Heart Break Boy: I had to stop by just to see my protege compete at the pinnacle of all wrestling; Pain for Pride.

(The Pizza Boy’s face turns from very excited, to a straight face…)

The Pizza Boy: … you left me, HBB. Do you know how painful that has been? It’s changed me as a person, and Drake and Jones taunts me, mocks me, because they want to believe they retired you.

Heart Break Boy: Retire me? That was a decision I made a long time back. It’s only ironic that we lost to them, but doesn’t mean they retired me.

The Pizza Boy: That’s besides the point. I’m trying to sum this up as… why? Why then?

Heart Break Boy: Because I wrestled in this industry for far too long, it was my time to go. I had done everything I possibly could, and elevating your career was one of those important things. I think you and I knew that I wouldn’t be here for much longer, and it was a tough pill to swallow. But look at you, you’ve done completely fine without me at your side. You don’t need me anymore, Pizza Boy, trust me.

The Pizza Boy: … I guess, but still, you didn’t even let me throw you a goodbye pizza party! Do you know how disappointing that was?!

Heart Break Boy: Heh, same ol’ Pizza Boy, they haven’t broken your spirit, your humor stays the same.

(The Heart Break Boy pulls The Pizza Boy in for a hug, and The Pizza Boy receives it.)

Heart Break Boy: Good luck out there, I know you won’t disappoint.

(The Heart Break Boy pulls back, smiling at The Pizza Boy, he nods, HBB nods back… before exiting the locker room, leaving a rather cheerful Pizza Boy to finish gearing up for his match, and the camera transitions elsewhere.)

( The camera fades to the ring )

Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall… AND IT IS FOR THE VIXEEEEEEENNNNSSSSSS CUP!!

( ‘We Hate Everyone’ by K. Flay hits as the lights in the stadium begin to flash purple and white. Kendra Shamez emerges and steps onto the stage. She surveys the crowd before making her way to the ring with a smile on her face )

Ring Announcer: Approaching the ring first, the challenger… from Buffalo, New York… KEEENNNDRRAAAAAAA SHAMMMEEEEEEZZZZZZZ!!

Masters: KENDRA SHAMEZ IN HER FIRST PAIN FOR PRIDE MATCH IN HALF A DECADE!! Mercer… do you think she has any butterflies?

Mercer: Of course she has butterflies… IT’S PAIN FOR PRIDE!! Everyone gets them whether they want to admit it or not, if you’re asking if she has any additional butterflies considering it’s been awhile since she competed here, the answer is no. She’s done almost everything you can in this company and she has a chance to add to her illustrious career here tonight.

( ‘Surfacing’ by Slipknot hits as Sheridan Muller hits the ramp carrying her Vixens Cup with a stone faced expression on her face. She stops mid-way down the ramp and locks eyes with Kendra. She raises the Cup up high and continues to make her way to the ring )

Ring Announcer: And her opponent, from Munich Germany… SHE IS THE CURRENT HOLDER OF THE VIXENS CUP!!… SHEEERRRRRRRIIIIIIIDDDANNNNNNNN MUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLERRRRRRR!!

Masters: Kendra all smiles tonight, Sheridan all business. German efficiency at it’s finest is Sheridan Muller. She’s tough, always well trained and judging by the Cup she’s carrying to the ring with her… obviously very talented, defeating fifteen other Vixens to become the very first holder of it.

Mercer: We very well could be looking at the next Vixens or Specialists Champion! Or… it could be Kendra Shamez! And don’t let that smile fool you Masters, underneath it, she’s all business just like Sheridan. This is gonna be good.

( Sheridan hands the Vixens Cup over to the referee who raises it, both Kendra and Sheridan look up as the camera zooms out and the Vixens Cup graphic flashes across the screen )

( Ding! Ding! Ding! )

Masters: Both women are set in their corners and the referee calls for the bell. Kendra glances over again at the Vixens Cup, that’s what this one’s about, that… and for Kendra revenge for what Sheridan did to Rey Shamez. A quick circle around the ring before they meet in the middle and lock-up! Classic collar-and-elbow! Not much of a size difference between the two but Sheridan clearly comes out on top with the strength advantage and is getting the best of Kendra here! Sheridan pushes her back into the ropes… the referee tries to make some space between the two… BUT SHERIDAN THROWS A RIGHT HAND AT KENDRA… KENDRA BLOCKS IT!! THE REFEREE TRYING TO SEPARATE THEM… KENDRA PUSHES THE REFEREE OUT OF THE WAY AND TACKLES SHERIDAN DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! SHE BEGINS PUMMELING INTO HER WITH HARD RIGHTS AND LEFTS!! SHERIDAN GETS HER ARMS UP TO BLOCK BUT THEY’RE COMING IN TOO FAST!!
Mercer: Kendra lets up on the punches… BUT NOW SHE FIRES A HARD FOREARM RIGHT TO THE NOSE OF SHERIDAN MULLER!! AND SHE KEEPS IT THERE!!… PUSHING HER FOREARM DEEPER INTO THE FACE OF SHERIDAN, PUTTING ALL HER WEIGHT INTO IT!! She finally releases, Sheridan rolls over onto her stomach and pushes herself to her feet… KENDRA COMES CHARGING WITH A CLOTHESLINE BUT SHERIDAN DUCKS UNDER IT… SHE TRAPS THE ARM OF KENDRA AND HITS A NECKBREAKER!! Sheridan gets to a seated position, she takes her arm and wipes her nose, a bit of blood tattooing itself on her forearm… AND NOW SHE’S RETURNING THE FAVOR!!

Masters: SHE MOUNTS HERSELF ON TOP OF KENDRA AND PUSHES HER FOREARM DEEP INTO THE FACE OF KENDRA!! KENDRA STRUGGLING TO KEEP HER SHOULDERS UP SO THIS DOESN’T TURN INTO A PIN ATTEMPT!! SHERIDAN SCREAMING AT KENDRA, “HOW DO YOU LIKE IT?!” AND NOW SHE SWITCHES FROM HER FOREARM TO HER ELBOW!! DIGGING IT INTO THE EYE SOCKET OF KENDRA… CONTINUING TO SCREAM AND YELL AT HER!! KENDRA TRYING TO PUSH SHERIDAN OFF OF HER… THROWING WILD SHOTS INTO THE RIBS!! SHE MIGHT BE TRYING TO MAKE KENDRA BLIND HERE!! SHERIDAN FINALLY LIFTS HER ELBOW UP… AND DRIVES IT DOWN ONCE MORE HARD!! She finally gets off… AND FOR GOOD MEASURE DELIVERS A STIFF KICK TO THE SIDE!!

Mercer: Kendra crawls over to the ropes and uses them to pull herself up to her feet… SHERIDAN COMES CHARGING WITH A CLOTHESLINE SENDING KENDRA OVER THE ROPES, BUT SHE’S ABLE TO CATCH HERSELF ON THE APRON!! Sheridan reaches over the ropes and grabs a handful of Kendra’s hair, pulling her back to her feet. She hooks her, looking for a suplex to get her back into the ring… BUT KENDRA BLOCKS IT!! WRAPPING HER FEET AROUND THE BOTTOM ROPE, NOT ALLOWING SHERIDAN TO LIFT HER!! AND NOW KENDRA WITH HER FREE ARM SENDING PUNCHES INTO THE MID-SECTION OF SHERIDAN MULLER!!

Masters: Sheridan let’s go of Kendra… KENDRA FOLLOWS UP WITH A HARD SHOULDER THRUST… SHERIDAN FORCED TO BEND FORWARD AND CLUTCH HER STOMACH… KENDRA TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK ON THE APRON BACK AND RUNS… A KNEE RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!! SHER DROPS LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES TO THE CANVAS AND KENDRA GLANCES OVER TO THE TOP ROPE AND BEGINS TO CLIMB!! SHERIDAN STUMBLES BACK TO HER FEET AS KENDRA TAKES FLIGHT AND LEAPS OFF… SHE SPREADS HER ARMS OUT WIDE AND LANDS THE CROSSBODY!! SHE GOT IT!! AND NOW THE COVER!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!! SHERIDAN POWERS OUT!!

Mercer: Sheridan and Kendra both back to their feet… Sher still a little wobbly from that knee to the head misses WILDLY with a right hand, she’s met with a kick to the gut by the former two time Vixens Champion… KENDRA LIFTS HER UP LOOKING TO POWERBOMB HER!! SHE RUSHES FORWARD AND OH MY!! SHE THROWS SHERIDAN RIGHT INTO THE CORNER!! She hits the into it hard, takes a few steps out before dropping to her knees… KENDRA COMES CHARGING… BUT SHERIDAN GRABS ONTO THE LEG, SHE GRABS ONTO THE LEG OF KENDRA WHO TRIPS AND FALLS AND BOUNCES HEAD FIRST OFF OF THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE… AND NOW FROM BEHIND SHERIDAN WITH THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK WRESTLES KENDRA BACK TO HER FEET… TIGER SUPLEX!!

Masters: Two consecutive BRUTAL moves delivered straight to the neck and head of Kendra Shamez, and it still doesn’t appear that Sheridan is done! Grabbing a fistful of hair again she gets Kendra back to her feet and whips her HARD into the opposite turnbuckle! SHE COMES CHARGING… LIFTS UP HER BOOT AND PLANTS IT RIGHT INTO THE SKULL OF KENDRA!! Sheridan throws her out of the corner and heads up to the top rope… the knee to the head from earlier STILL looks to be affecting Sheridan, she may be concussed and it’s hindering her from reaching the top rope! She rests herself on the second rope and takes a deep breath before continuing her climb! She sets herself up at the top!

Mercer: SHERIDAN JUMPS… DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!! NO!! IT DOESN’T CONNECT!! KENDRA ROLLED TO HER LEFT ONTO HER STOMACH AND SHERIDAN CAUGHT NOTHING BUT CANVAS!!… AND NOW KENDRA FROM BEHIND… ROLLING SHERIDAN UP!! BUT SHE GOT OUT OF IT BEFORE THE REFEREE COULD EVEN GET DOWN FOR THE PIN… NO SHE REVERSED IT!! CROSS ARMBAR!! SHE’S TRYING TO APPLY IT BUT KENDRA IS PUTTING UP A GREAT FIGHT HERE… KENDRA GETS HERSELF TO A VERTICAL BASE AND SHERIDAN HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO GIVE UP ON THE HOLD!!

Masters: Sheridan quickly back to her feet… BOTH WOMEN THROW A SHOT BUT SHERIDAN LANDS HERS FIRST, DAZING KENDRA!! SHE LIFTS HER UP LOOKING FOR A SIDEWALK SLAM… BUT KENDRA!! KENDRA!! SUNSET PEAK!! KENDRA HAS THE SUNSET PEAK LOCKED IN ON SHERIDAN!! SHE’S GONNA TAP!! SHE HAS TO TAP!! I DON’T THINK THERE’S A WAY TO GET OUT OF THIS MOVE!! KENDRA HAS IT LOCKED IN PERFECTLY AND SHERIDAN IS DOING ANYTHING SHE CAN!! SHE TRIES REACHING OUT TOWARDS THE ROPES BUT THEY’RE TOO FAR AWAY AND IN THE POSITION SHE’S IN SHE CAN’T DRAG HERSELF ANY CLOSER TO THEM!! IT’S DESPERATION TIME FOR SHERIDAN… IF SHE DOESN’T ACT QUICK SHE’S GONNA START TO FADE, AND THEN IT’LL BE ALL OVER, WE’LL HAVE A NEW HOLDER OF THE VIXEN’S CUP!!

Mercer: THIS IS WHERE WE SEE WHAT SHERIDAN IS REALLY MADE OF, IN FRONT OF 80,000 PEOPLE, ON THE BIGGEST STAGE… WILL SHERIDAN MULLER FALL VICTIM TO THE SUNSET PEAK?!?! WITH ONE LAST EFFORT… SHE TRIES TO PULL HERSELF TO THE LEFT, PUTTING ALL HER FORCE INTO IT… IT’S NOT GOOD FOR HER TO PUT ALL THIS PRESSURE AND STRAIN ON HER ARM BUT IF SHE WANTS TO RETAIN HER VIXEN’S CUP IT’S HER ONLY CHOICE!! SHE CONTINUES TO PUSH DOWN, AGAINST KENDRA WHO LETS OUT A SCREAM POSSIBLY REALIZING THAT SHE’S LOSING HER GRIP ON THE HOLD… AND SHERIDAN’S OUT!! SHE’S BROKEN OUT OF THE SUNSET PEAK!!

Masters: OH BUT NOW LOOK AT THIS!! WHEN SHERIDAN BROKE OUT OF THE HOLD KENDRA’S LEGS SWUNG AROUND AND NOW SHE HAS KENDRA PERFECTLY POSITIONED FOR A TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!! AND BEFORE KENDRA COULD EVEN REACT SHE HITS IT!! KENDRA’S SKULL BOUNCING OFF THE CANVAS…SHER NEEDS TO COVER HER RIGHT NWO, SHE’S TAKING TOO MUCH TIME! INTO THE COVER GOES SHERIDAN!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THRR– NO!! IT’S NOT ENOUGH!! KENDRA KICKS OUT!!

Mercer: IF SHERIDAN JUST GOT THE COVER SECONDS EARLIER, THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN OVER! Sheridan comes out of the pin and gets to her feet, her arm is in bad shape, she tries to shake some feeling back into it as Kendra remains down, maybe only being able to kick out on instinct! I know Sheridan’s hurt but this is an opportunity that she doesn’t want to miss! Kendra starting to stir, she crawls over to the nearest corner and grabs onto the middle rope and pulls herself to her feet. Both women hesitant to rush towards the other… SHERIDAN LUNGES but thinks twice about it and steps back… KENDRA RUSHES FORWARD AT SHERIDAN AND SHE DUCKS… BUT KENDRA STOPS SHORT AND SHE SLAPS SHERIDAN RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE!!

Masters: THAT ONE WAS FOR REY!! The force of the slap knocked Sheridan off her feet momentarily but she’s back up… AND A SPINEBUSTER FROM KENDRA SHAMEZ!! SHERIDAN IS REELING HERE!!… KENDRA BACK TO HER FEET RUNS AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE… LIONSAULT!! NO!! SHERIDAN GOT HER KNEES UP AND DROVE THEM INTO THE CHEST OF KENDRA!! Kendra in a kneeling position, clutching her chest, Sheridan gets to the same position… AND A HARD EUROPEAN UPPERCUT THAT FORCES KENDRA TO HER FEET AND NOW SHE STUMBLES BACK INTO THE CORNER!! Sheridan now to her feet follows Kendra into the corner!
Mercer: She props Kendra up on the top turnbuckle and fires a right hand! Sheridan now beginning to climb herself… she fires a second right hand and begins to turn Kendra around… SHE LOCKS HER ARMS AROUND HER WAIST… LOOKING FOR THE SHERPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE!! KENDRA KNOWS SHE CAN’T ALLOW THIS AND SHE’S NOT GOING TO!! SHE QUICKLY ACTS BYS FIRING ELBOWS INTO THE HEAD OF THE SHERIDAN, GETTING HER TO UNLOCK HER WAIST… SHE FIRES A LAST ELBOW THAT ALMOST KNOCKS SHERIDAN OFF THE TOP BUT SHE’S ABLE TO CATCH HERSELF BY HOLDING ON TO THE TOP ROPE!!

Masters: AND NOW KENDRA!! LOOK MERCER!! IS SHE… I THINK SHE’S SETTING UP FOR THE ENUCLEATION FROM THE TOP ROPE!! IF SHE HITS THIS FOLKS I GUARANTEE YOU SHE WILL BE THE NEW HOLDER OF THE VIXEN’S CUP!! KENDRA DOING A GREAT JOB OF BALANCING HERSELF HERE AS SHE PULLS SHERIDAN UP WITH HER… SHE REACHES BACK WITH HER ARMS AND LOCKS THEM AROUND THE JAW OF SHERIDAN… AND SHE LEAPS OFF… OH MY GOD!! SHE GOT IT!! SHE GOT IT!! KENDRA SHAMEZ WITH THE ENUCLEATION FROM THE TOP ROPE!! THIS IS WHAT PAIN FOR PRIDE IS ABOUT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!

*A slow motion replay is shown of Kendra delivering the Enucleation from the top rope. It shows Sheridan hitting the canvas, bouncing up and then hitting a second time and laying motionless on the mat*

Mercer: BUT THEY’RE BOTH DOWN!! BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN!! THAT MAY HAVE TAKEN JUST AS MUCH OUT OF KENDRA AS IT DID SHERIDAN!! THERE MAY BE DAMAGE TO HER TAILBONE!! KENDRA NEEDS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE HERE, SHE NEEDS TO PIN!! THE VICTORY AND THE VIXEN’S CUP IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER!! THE REFEREE GOES TO CHECK ON BOTH WOMEN… BUT I DON’T THINK HE’S GETTING A RESPONSE FROM EITHER, CERTAINLY HE WON’T COUNT THEM BOTH OUT WILL HE?! WAIT!! KENDRA IS BEGINNING TO STIR!! SHE’S SHOWING LIFE!! SHE CRAWLS SLOWLY BUT SURELY OVER TO SHERIDAN AND HOOKS THE LEG, HERE’S THE PIN BUT DID SHE TAKE TOO MUCH TIME?!?!

ONEEE!!… TWOOOO!!… AND…. NO!! NO!! I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT SHERIDAN KICKS OUT!!

Masters: SHERIDAN KICKED OUT, I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! KENDRA CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!

*The camera zooms in on Kendra in obvious pain and with a look of despair on her face*

Sheridan’s spine RATTLED against the unforgiving ring mat, there’s no telling the damage that was done but somehow… someway she was able to kick out! Kendra has set up camp momentarily at the edge of the ring in a seated position, no doubt trying to regain her stamina and get her thoughts in check. She was CERTAIN she had it there! She raises her head and nods, perhaps a moment of clarity for the legendary Vixen. She rolls back into the ring under the bottom rope… meanwhile Sheridan is JUST NOW beginning to stir!

Mercer: Kendra gets to her feet and follows Sheridan as she crawls towards the ropes. Kendra the predator, Sheridan the prey. Sheridan is spent, NEEDING the ropes to get back to her feet and to hold her up… BUT KENDRA’S HAD ENOUGH WAITING… SHE PULLS HER AWAY FROM THE ROPES AND SPINS HER AROUND… BITCH TREATMENT!! NO!! SHERIDAN LOCKS HER HANDS AROUND THE WAIST OF KENDRA WHILE IN MIDAIR… SHERPLEX!! SHERPLEX!! AND NOW SHE BRIDGES THE PIN!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THREEE!!

( Ding! Ding! Ding! )

( ‘Surfacing’ blasts throughout New Miami Stadium as the referee exits the ring to fetch the Vixens Cup. He brings it into the ring and hands it to Sheridan Muller who gets to her feet and raises it high )

Ring Announcer: Your winner… AND STILL HOLDER OF THE VIXENS CUP… SHERRRRIIIIDDDAAANNNNNNNNNNN MUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLLERRRRRRRRR!!

Masters: WHAT A PAIN FOR PRIDE DEBUT FOR SHERIDAN MULLER!! RETAINING HER VIXENS CUP BY DEFEATING… MAYBE THE GREATEST VIXEN IN THE HISTORY OF THIS COMPANY!! INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE!!

Mercer: An incredible performance by BOTH of these women Masters, not just Sheridan. Kendra proved tonight that she can still go at an incredibly high level, despite not getting the victory.

( Sheridan is shown at the top of the ramp raising the Cup up high once more before pulling it down and kissing it before the camera fades )

(The camera pans backstage to where we are met with Scott Oasis cradling the World Heavyweight Championship on his shoulder as he is joined by The Kingpin himself, Zack Crash in their private backstage locker room.)

Zack Crash: It’s the big time, Scott. You have the opportunity to destroy Lucian Black once and for all and crush his dreams of becoming World Heavyweight Champion. This is what you’re destined to do and I’m proud that you will represent Omerta in this glorious moment of your career.

Scott Oasis: Even though I find it insulting that they have banned my friends from joining me in what will be my greatest conquest, I’m happy to know that tonight will be a grand night for Omerta. After I massacre The Mastodon tonight, I’m going to be watching very closely to you finish Jacob Senn once and for all! These men will be left with nothing and Omerta will finally stand on the top of Dynasty with no one able to stop us!

Zack Crash: Trust me, Scott. There’s nothing to worry about. I can handle Jacob, just like I did at the End of the Year Awards Show, and I promise that this time he won’t be able to get up from this one. He will stay down, he will be out of our lives for good, and we will just have to worry about whatever sad soul tries to take that championship away from you and Omerta, Scott.

Scott Oasis: Good. Now, I need to get ready, boss. I want to be at my best going into this title defense. I know I’m better than him, but I want to be prepared for whatever that choke artist Lucian Black has to offer.

(Scott Oasis stands up and Zack Crash stands with him as both men shake hands and embrace before Scott walks out of the locker room with an intense glare on Zack’s face as he departs.)

(A video package plays recapping the feud between Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava. The words “Bitter”, “Spite”, “Hatred” are sprawled over the screen but it finishes with “Glory”. The camera swaps back to the stadium as the lights begin to slowly fade until the crowd is covered in darkness. Slowly, five of the large lights hanging over the stage turn on to shine down on several violinists who begin to play a smooth melody)

Narrator: I will rise. After every fall, I will rise and stand even more tall.

Narrator: I will rise over the wall; I will rise above them all.

(The two large screens on the stage turn on to show still images of Jamie O’Hara making his debut and several matches afterwards, culminating in winning the New Breed title)

Narrator: Like the sun which never dies, though sets every night; every day it does rise.

Narrator: Like the ocean whose tides many times they are down but invariably they rise.

(Waterfall pyrotechnics rain down from the roof of the stadium and falling behind the stage; the lights turn on and bath the stadium in gold. The images change to O’Hara winning Cash In The Vault and becoming the EAW Champion, including retaining at Road To Redemption)

Narrator: Like the trees from seeds they arise and heights great they rise and rise.

(The melody softens as the pyro turns from a waterfall into a trickle and only the large lights hanging over the stadium remain on, still fixated on the violinists. The images change to the defeats O’Hara suffered throughout 2016)

Narrator: After falling once, twice and thrice. Again and again, I will rise and rise.

(The violinists end their melody as the five thinner screens show O’Hara throughout the years.Two from his time prior to EAW, one as he was the New Breed champion, another with the EAW Championship and a worn down, beaten O’Hara in the middle)

Narrator: I will rise after every fall.

(The images begin to fade until the middle one, the worn down and beaten O’Hara remains)

O’Hara: After every fall. I will rise.

(“The Awakening” by COPIA hits as several concussion blasts echo throughout the stadium, smoke plumes rise through the grates of the stage and ramp as Jamie O’Hara rises on a lift in the middle of the stage wearing a white, bullet ripped leather. O’Hara surveys the stadium as flames shoot up around the rim of the stage before making his way down the ring as more plumes of smoke shoot up from the grates on the ramp behind him)

Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Sydney Australia! Weighing in at two hundred and fifteen pounds! JAMIE OOOOOOOOOOOO’HHHHAAAARRRAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

Mercer: November 7th 2015. It will be a night Jamie O’Hara will never forget as he became the EAW Champion. Fast forward to January 30th 2016 and ever since it’s been a downward Spiral. He says it’s impossible to fill the void created by the loss but he felt some comfort in putting Dark Demon into retirement. It’s been a dark, lonely journey for O’Hara but he’s convinced tonight is the start of a new chapter, one that destined to end much like that cold November night.

Masters: And he knows standing in his way is an opponent hellbent on creating history, adding perhaps the greatest accomplishment to already one of the greatest legacies this company has seen. They met earlier in the year and it was a dead heat, a set time limit halting an exciting match but this feud began the moment Cameron turned and assisted Dark Demon in eliminating O’Hara from the Grand Rampage match. It was then at Triple Threat where she played a crucial role in eliminating him from a the Brand Warfare match.

Mercer: Ever since, it’s been a heated war of words. Finally tonight, it ends.

(“The Awakening” by COPIA fades and O’Hara removes his jacket. He signs to the fans as a faint chant starts. “Sellouts” by Breathe Carolina hits drowning out the chant. The rattle of chains can be heard as four horses, covered in gold and silver lined plates make their way up the ramp on the left hand stage. Behind them they pull a chariot with Cameron Ella Ava standing in the back. Leather straps at the end of the chains wrap around her left wrist and stretches her right arm out, soaking in the heavily mixed reaction as the horses drag the chariot across the stage)

Mercer: WOW!!!

Masters: Nothing but absolute royalty for the Goddess.

(The horses stop in the middle of the stage and she exits the back of the chariot. Gold strips run up along the side of the silver coat and wrap around in an intricate pattern at the shoulder and wraps around to the back. Every step she takes the screen on the stage turns gold, leaving golden footprints behind her. She stops at the top of the ramp and the lights beneath the grates bask her in gold, it continues as she makes her way down to the ring. Comets fly a the arches of the stadium over the fans below, the stadium slowly fades from the silver of the lights to the gold of the pyrotechnics)

Announcer: And his opponent, from Los Angeles, California, weighing one hundred and twenty five pounds. THE QUEEN OF THE VIXENS, THE GODDESS OF EAW. CAMERON. ELLA. AAAAAVVVVVVVAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

Mercer: She is beyond a shadow of a doubt the greatest Vixen to ever grace EAW. The horses, the chariot, the gold is so symbolic of her status in this company, how grand her career has been. She has broken free from the division and it has become a desire greater than anything many can imagine, becoming the first Vixen to win a world championship. She’s a former Hall of Fame champion, a former Interwire champion but none of that compares to the prestige of being the best of the best, standing tall as a world champion.

Masters: Cameron believes wholeheartedly if she can defeat Jamie O’Hara tonight, then the path is finally open in front of her, there isn’t any reason, isn’t any excuse in the world to not give her the opportunity to compete for such a title. It’s become an obsession for her; she’s become far more aggressive, far more determined since Grand Rampage.

(Cameron enters the ring and removes the robe before immediately confronting O’Hara in the middle of the ring)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Mercer: The competitive nature within both of these competitors is undeniable. They’ve promised to leave every drop of blood, every bead of sweat and every bitter tear in the ring tonight with world title aspirations on the line. Both Cameron Ella Ava and Jamie O’Hara standing toe to toe in the middle of the ring, eyes locked and you can just feel the hatred seething from one another; weeks of back and forth, of tricks, of mind games, of brutal assaults stemming from way back at Grand Rampage. Both step backwards to opposite corners and begin to pace around the ring, keeping their eyes locked on one another waiting for an opening — and O’Hara steps in for a collar and elbow tie up. O’Hara overpowering Cameron onto the ropes and the referee is forced to intervene to break it up. O’Hara obliges and steps back with his hands raised! Cameron braces herself for an attack but instead O’Hara turns his back and makes his way to the opposite side of the ring. Cameron charges towards O’Hara BUT O’HARA TURNS AND DELIVERS A STIFF KNEE TO THE RIBS. A KICK TO THE BACK OF THE KNEE, A SECOND KNEE TO THE MID SECTION AND AN AXE KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD; THE COMBO BRINGS CAMERON ELLA AVA TO HER KNEES! O’HARA STEPS BACK AND RACES BACK TOWARDS HIS OPPONENT! FAITH’S MALADY!!! RIGHT OFF THE BAT! NO! IT MISSES AS CAMERON SLIDES OUT OF THE RING TO AVOID THE RUNNING KNEE. O’Hara rolls backwards in the ring and sits in the middle with his legs crossed and his arms stretched out wide; simply mocking Cameron who slams both hands on the ring apron out of frustration. O’Hara just toying with his opponent which has been rather regular in his matches for the last month.

Masters: He does it to get under the skin of his opponents, to frustrate them so they make a mistake just like then. Showing a complete lack of respect to Cameron Ella Ava who says that’s one of the many reasons why she chose this match, why she wanted to face Jamie O’Hara tonight at Pain For Pride.

Mercer: O’Hara still sitting in the ring taunting Cameron to enter the ring and she does so, slowly sliding into the ring and immediately races towards O’Hara and swings for a kick but O’Hara drops to his back. Cameron attempts a stomp but O’Hara rolls to the side and kips back up to his feet. Cameron steps in but O’Hara grabs her by the arm and delivers an armdrag. Both competitors get back to their feet but O’Hara with a cocky grin across his face. Back again to the collar and elbow tie up — CAMERON WITH A SLAP! The slap echoes throughout the New Miami Stadium and Cameron immediately starts laying into O’Hara with left and right fists! Unrelentless in her assault and she connects with a forearm smash! Knock Bitches Out rocks O’Hara and sends him reeling onto the ropes. Cameron follows it up with an Irish Whip, sending O’Hara into the opposite ropes and she floors him with a roundhouse kick! Immediately sliding into the pin.

ONEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Masters: O’Hara powers out at one. Cameron drops down and applies a headlock! O’Hara trying to fight back to a vertical base but Cameron rolls through and puts O’Hara back onto his back as O’Hara starts to press both hands against Cameron’s head to break the hold but Cameron traps the arm! No longer able to push his way out of the hold, O’Hara again trying to get back to a vertical base and this time drives his opponent onto the ropes. Cameron pushes O’Hara across to the other side of the ring, O’Hara bounces of the ropes and Cameron swings for a lariat but O’Hara ducks. Bouncing off the other side O’Hara swings himself but Cameron drops to the canvas and quickly races back to her feet for a dropkick but it misses! O’Hara saw it coming and held onto the ropes as Cameron again races back to her feet and the two again stand toe to toe in the middle of the ring, this time exchanging words.

Mercer: Cameron charges back towards O’Hara but O’Hara counters with an armdrag followed by a transition straight into an armbar, with the knee squishing Cameron Ella Ava’s head between it and the canvas. Jamie O’Hara focusing on keeping the knee firmly pressed on Cameron’s skull as he turns the hold into a wristlock, pulling the wrist back and applying immense pressure! The crowd well behind O’Hara in this contest as Cameron tries to find a way out of the hold as O’Hara switches from the wrist to the fingers, pulling them back, pull them apart and trying to tear the webbing. He’s just toying with her, dissecting the arm, the wrist and the fingers as he pleases. O’Hara releases the hold but delivers a swift kick to the back. Cameron seated in the middle of the ring, O’Hara hits the ropes to the left of her and delivers a dropkick to the left temple! We saw this two weeks ago, O’Hara just getting started as he races to the right hand side, hits the ropes and connects with another dropkick this time to the right temple! O’Hara races back to his feet and hits the ropes behind Cameron but passes by, hitting the ropes in front of her and connecting with both boots smashing Cameron in the face! Her head whips back onto the canvas and O’Hara slowly gets back to his feet, knowing full well he’s in complete control of this contest and has complete control of Cameron Ella Ava. He drops to a knee and grabs the left arm, twisting it once again before pulling Cameron to her feet. Center of the ring, O’HARA WITH ALL HIS STRENGTH VIOLENTLY WHIPS CAMERON INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! Cameron pulls herself up by the ropes and O’Hara charges towards her but she gets the boot up! The boot connects to the jaw and O’Hara comes out reeling but regains his composure and charges again. Cameron again getting the boot up but O’Hara slides under and out of the ring, pulling her legs out from under her before dragging her back to the ring post. O’Hara keeps hold of the left leg and wraps it around the ringpost! The knee cracking against the unforgiving steel as Cameron writhes in pain! He’s not done yet! O’Hara again grabbing the left leg of Cameron Ella Ava and again wraps it around the ringpost! Cameron falls out of the ring clutching at her knee as O’Hara walks around the ring, too sweeting fans at ringside!

Masters: The referee ordering O’Hara to enter the ring and he does so as Cameron slowly gets back to her feet and rolls back into the ring. O’Hara going back to work and drags Cameron to the middle of the ring by the beaten leg before dropping an elbow! A second and third! Followed by a splash on the knee! O’Hara immediately goes for the pin.

ONEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Masters: Cameron gets the shoulder up. A “O’Hara” chant reverberating around the stadium as O’Hara allows Cameron to get back to her feet. O’Hara follows up with a stiff elbow to the jaw followed by a knee to the mid section. O’Hara hits the ropes and comes rushing back but Cameron steps out of the way and throws O’Hara over the top rope! But he holds on! O’Hara pulling himself back over the top — SUPERKICK! Cameron with the superkick as O’Hara was pulling himself back over the top rope and he he crashes shoulder first on the ring apron and falls to the ringside area. A desperation move giving her some valuable time to regain her breath and composure but her knee buckles under her and she collapses back to the canvas. The referee begins his count.

Ref: ONE!!!! TWO!!! THREE!!!! FOUR!!! FIVE!!!

Masters: O’Hara has barely moved but Cameron decides to leave the ring anyway. She pulls O’Hara back to his feet and drives the shoulder into the corner post! The same steel colliding with the shoulder of Jamie O’Hara who falls to the floor holding his shoulder in pain. The smile has vanished, replaced with pure agony as Cameron Ella Ava slowly but confidently makes her way back into the ring and the referee starts his count again.

Ref: ONE!!!! TWO!!! THREE!!!

Masters: O’Hara hasn’t moved an inch.

Ref: FOUR!!! FIVE!!! SIX!!!

Mercer: Just starting to stir a little as he tries to use the ring steps to pull himself back into the ring as Cameron screams at the referee to count faster.

Ref: SEVEN!!! EIGHT!!!

Mercer: O’Hara crawling along the steel steps, clawing his way with his fingertips just barely on the bottom rope; Cameron again screaming at the referee.

Ref: NINE!!!! TEN!!!!

Mercer: NO! O’HARA JUST MAKES IT BACK INTO THE RING! O’HARA JUST BARELY KEEPS HIMSELF ALIVE IN THIS CONTEST, STILL FEELING THE EFFECTS OF LANDING ON THE RING APRON MOMENTS AGO. And now Cameron stomping away at the injured shoulder before standing on it, pushing down on the top rope to amplify the pressure as O’Hara clutches the bottom rope to force a reprieve.

Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!!

Mercer: Cameron steps away at the command of the referee and O’Hara pulls himself back to his feet using the ropes. O’Hara steps forward but Cameron quickly races up and wraps her arms around the waist of O’Hara and lifts him up and over! The belly to belly suplex connects! O’Hara quickly back to his feet on the opposite side of the ring as Cameron comes charging back towards him. O’Hara throws a left fist out but it’s caught by Cameron and she delivers a kick to the inside of the arm, jolting the shoulder and O’Hara again falls to the canvas in a seated position clutching it. The tide has certainly turned in favour of the the Hall of Famer as she delivers a free kick to the back of the shoulder. The referee trying to check on O’Hara but Cameron refuses to allow him to with repeated stomps! Now pulling O’Hara away from the ropes and standing on the hand, Cameron jumps and comes down with the knee being driven into the shoulder. O’Hara writhes in pain but Cameron makes it impossible for him to protect the shoulder. Cameron turns to pulling O’Hara to his feet, yanking the injured shoulder. O’Hara back to his feet as Cameron starts to unload with several high kicks and boots to the shoulder — BUT O’HARA CATCHES ONE! DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP! TWISTING THE LEG AND THE KNEE OF CAMERON ELLA AVA. A DESPERATION MOVE OF HIS OWN TO BUY HIM SOME TIME TO RECOVER AS CAMERON THRASHES IN THE RING CLUTCHING THE KNEE IN PAIN. Both competitors stumbling back to their feet, Cameron limping as O’Hara tries take her back down to the canvas with a headlock but Cameron easily escapes it and locks him in for a suplex. O’Hara fights back with several body shots and a knee to the skull as Cameron tries to lift him up. O’Hara manages to escape and delivers a palm strike to the jaw that rocks Cameron back onto the ropes. She steps forward and O’Hara delivers a kick to the mid section and pulls her in for a suplex of his own! O’Hara lifts Cameron up but she manages to deliver a knee of her own! A second attempt and again Cameron fights it off with a knee to the head! O’Hara releases but keeps a hold the left arm and pulls Cameron in for a vicious uppercut! O’Hara keeps hold of Cameron’s arm and pulls her back to her feet, looking to attempt a suplex for a third time and he lifts her up success! Wait, O’Hara drops Cameron on the top rope and wraps his arms around her neck. OH NO. DRAGON SCREW NECK WHIP! O’HARA TWISTS THE BODY OF CAMERON ELLA AVA AND SHE COMES CRASHING DOWN ON THE BACK OF HER NECK, TURNED UPSIDE DOWN AND INSIDE OUT. O’HARA CRAWLS INTO THE PIN.

ONEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOO!!! THREEEE–

Masters: CAMERON GETS HER FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE. O’HARA ROLLS OFF AND SMASHES HIS FIST INTO THE CANVAS IN DISBELIEF, HE THOUGHT HE HAD HER. O’Hara staggers back up to his feet and grabs the battered leg of Cameron and delivers a kick to the back of the knee. Now twisting the leg between his and dropping to the canvas; Cameron sits up in pain and connects with a closed fist trying to force O’Hara to alleviate pressure on the knee. O’Hara rolls out of the position back to a vertical base but quickly delivers an elbow drop right on the knee. More pain, more torment. O’Hara rolls Cameron onto her stomach and stands on the back of the injured knee and she starts scratching and clawing to get to the bottom rope but the full weight on the back of the knee makes it impossible. O’Hara stands on the other knee, twisting the lower half around his own and reaches down, grabbing Cameron by the arms and begins to rock back and forth! He falls onto his back and lifts the legs and now has the Romero Special locked in! Cameron in excruciating pain as the pressure is applied to the knees but O’Hara isn’t finished! HE TRANSITIONS INTO THE DRAGON SLEEPER VARIANT. CAMERON’S BODY BEING BENT, O’HARA DETERMINED TO BREAK HER INTO TWO. THE DRAGON SLEEPER LOCKED IN TIGHT WITH O’HARA’S BOOTS STILL PUSHING AGAINST THE BACK OF HER KNEES. CAMERON DESPERATELY TRYING TO ESCAPE, CLAWING AT THE EYES OF O’HARA, TRYING TO FORCE HIM TO BREAK THE HOLD BUT O’HARA ISN’T QUITTING. YOU CAN SEE THE FIRE, THE HATRED IN HIS EYES; HE DOESN’T CARE FOR THE HEALTH AND WELLBEING OF CAMERON ELLA AVA. O’HARA CONTINUES TO CINCH THE HOLD IN MORE AND MORE AS CAMERON STARTS TO FADE.

Mercer: And O’Hara drops Cameron back to the canvas but keeps the Dragon Sleeper locked in as he releases the pressure on the back of her knees. Cameron trying to roll out of the submission hold but she only makes it worse! She rolls onto her stomach and It allows O’Hara to convert the sleeper into a clutch! His Southern Crucifixion locked it but Cameron is close enough to the ropes and barely, just barely gets the fingertips wrapped around it to break the hold! A very lucky escape.

Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREE!! FOUR!!!

Mercer: O’Hara releases the Dragon Clutch and pulls Cameron back into the middle of the ring, rolling her onto her stomach and going for a pin!

ONEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOO!!!!! THREEEEE– KICKOUT!!

Mercer: Cameron manages to get the shoulder up before the third count. And I think O’Hara has had enough! He pulls Cameron Ella Ava back to her feet and simply tosses her out of the ring right before our table and exits the ring. Watch out, we better move as O’Hara starts ripping apart the announce table, removing the cover, the monitors, lights and papers. He rolls Cameron onto the table and delivers several forearm shots to make sure she doesn’t get back up; he points the gun at Cameron’s head and fires as the fans roar in excitement. You can feel he wants to end it here, end it now. O’Hara rolls back into the ring and LAUNCHES HIMSELF ONTO THE TOP ROPE. HE FLIES THROUGH THE AIR! SERENADE OF ECSTASY! THE FROG SPLASH BUT CAMERON ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND O’HARA GOES CRASHING THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE. HOLY SHIT. THE HEIGHT FROM THE ROPES, HE HIT THE TABLE HARD AND IT BREAKS UNDERNEATH HIM. CAMERON BARELY ABLE TO ROLL AWAY IN TIME. THE REFEREE IMMEDIATELY EXITS THE RING AND CHECKS ON BOTH COMPETITORS.

(A replay shows O’Hara missing with the frog splash from various angles)

Masters: Cameron is too exhausted to capitalise immediately as she’s slumped against the Voltage table and Jamie O’Hara hasn’t moved at all; lying face down at our feet, his eyes are glazed over. The referee continuing to the check on O’Hara as Cameron uses the table to get back to her feet. She shoves the referee aside and pulls O’Hara up by the hair but he’s dead weight. Cameron trying to drag O’Hara’s lifeless body to the ring, she wants to make a statement and prove to the world she’s more than ready to do what no Vixen has ever done before and that’s hold a world championship. Slowly but surely she does, and O’Hara is starting to come to his senses as he drags himself to a corner — CAMERON WITH KNEE TO THE SKULL! O’HARA’S SKULL BOUNCES OFF THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE AS CAMERON STEPS AWAY BEFORE CHARGING BACK AND CONNECTING WITH THE KNEE AGAIN. She pulls O’Hara back to his feet but O’Hara with enough strength to fire a slap across the face, Cameron fires back with right hook that spins O’Hara around — REVESE FRANKENSTEIN! CAMERON SPIKES O’HARA ON THE TOP OF HIS SKULL AND ROLLS HIM OVER INTO THE COVER.

ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! TWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! THREEEE—

Mercer: O’Hara gets the shoulder up! His eyes staring deep into the crowd, barely able to focus on the match at hand. Cameron immediately gets back to her feet and orders O’Hara to get to his; slapping the back of his hand. Finally O’Hara does so and Cameron hits the ropes but races up and cuts her off, lifts her into the air and catches her before driving her spine first into the canvas! O’Hara depleting the tank, everything he had left put right into the spinebuster! But he’s not done! Jamie O’Hara yanks Cameron to her feet and looks to connect with Dust to Dust! Cameron spins out of the move, twisting the shoulder of O’Hara and floating around to his back! GERMAN! Cameron with a fist full of tights to assist in getting O’Hara up and over. O’Hara crashes hard on the back of his neck and the injured shoulder and he promptly reaches for the ropes. The two lay in the ring catching their breath momentarily as they begin to get to their feet, O’Hara using the turnbuckle to get to his with his back turned to Cameron Ella Ava. GODDDEEESSSS’ TOOOUUCCCHHHH!!! WITH HIS BACK TURNED THE BOOT OF CAMERON SMASHES INTO O’HARA’S FACE AS HE COLLAPSES TO THE MAT. SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

OOOONNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!! TTTWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!! TTTTHHHHHREEEEEEE!!!!!!

Masters: KICKOUT!! KICKOUTT!! JAMIE O’HARA JUST GETS THE SHOULDER UP, JUST, JUST SAVES HIS OWN ASS IN THIS MATCH. Cameron Ella Ava confronts the referee in the corner, arguing that it was three. O’Hara trying to get back to his feet but he collapses back to the canvas. Cameron now standing over him, mocking O’Hara as he reaches for a hand but she kicks it away and gives O’Hara an almighty spray but he shuts her up with a slap that rocks her! Cameron staggers back as a weak grin appears on the face of O’Hara; showing no sign of respect! And it’s just pissed her right off! Cameron pulls O’Hara to his feet before flooring him with a forearm smash! Knock Bitches Out sends O’Hara back to the canvas as blood begins to trickle from the mouth, sitting back up in complete disarray. Cameron rolls him onto his back and traps the arm, rolling him over and applying the armbar to the opposite arm! SHE LOCKS IN BITCH’S WAY OUT! THE SCISSORED ARMBAR AND NOW BEGINS TO KICK REPEATEDLY AT THE HEAD OF O’HARA! THE BACK OF THE HEAD, THE TEMPLE, THE MOUTH. O’HARA GRITTING HIS TEETH, REFUSING TO GIVE UP, REFUSING TO QUIT. EVERY KICK DOING MORE AND MORE DAMAGE, BECOMING HARDER AND HARDER TO REMAIN CONSCIOUS AS CAMERON CONTINUES TO PULL ON THE ARM, APPLYING MORE PRESSURE TO THE BATTERED SHOULDER. CAMERON CONTINUES TO AT THE KICK OF O’HARA’S HEAD, MORE BLOOD SPILLING FROM O’HARA’S MOUTH. THE REFEREE ASKING IF HE WANTS TO QUIT BUT HE SCREAMS NO, ALMOST SPITTING SPIT AND BLOOD IN HIS FACE. NOW CAMERON SIMPLY DRIVING THE HEEL INTO THE BACK OF THE HEAD, PULLING THE ARM BACK EVEN FURTHER AND O’HARA’S SCREAMS OF DEFIANCE TURN TO SCREAMS OF PURE PAIN AND AGONY.

Mercer: And Cameron releases, giving O’Hara a moment of reprieve as he rolls onto the ring apron clutching the shoulder, wiping blood from his mouth.

Cameron: Where’s that fucking smile now, huh!? Not so cocky now…

Masters: Cameron making her way over to the ropes and leans over the second to pull O’Hara to his feet but O’Hara fights back with a closed fist but Cameron simply shakes it off and pulls O’Hara to a vertical base, leaning over the second rope. O’Hara again trying to push Cameron away and give himself more time to breath, more time to recover and follows it up with a shoulder to the mid section. Cameron responds by pulling O’Hara by his hair and drags O’Hara back into the ring; stopping now with O’Hara’s feet resting on the bottom rope! Rope assisted DDT! O’Hara planted as Cameron rolls him over and goes for a cover.

ONEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! TWWOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEE–

Mercer: O’Hara gets the foot on the bottom rope himself! Great ring awareness and he immediately rolls back out onto the ring apron to recover. O’Hara quickly using the ropes to pull himself back to his feet as Cameron gets back to hers and tries to pull grab the head of O’Hara but O’Hara grabs hers and drops to the apron, bringing Cameron’s throat down on the rope and she falls to the canvas. O’Hara quickly back into the ring but stumbles and Cameron is quick to act. SHE PULLS O’HARA IN FOR THE BITCH CAMP BUT O’HARA KICKS AT THE BACK OF THE KNEE, STUNNING HER MOMENTARILY BUT ENOUGH TO SWEEP AROUND. O’HARA PUTS HER ARM AROUND HIS NECK AND HOOKS THE LEG, LOOKING DEATH DECAY AND WINDY DAYS BUT CAMERON FIGHTS OUT OF IT BY FALLING TO THE CANVAS. O’HARA AGAIN TRYING TO LIFT HER UP BUT IT’S TOO MUCH STRAIN ON THE SHOULDER AND O’HARA RELEASES HIS GRIP, CLUTCHING AT IT. GODDESSSSS’ TOUCH!!! NO!! O’HARA STEPS OUT OF THE WAY AND PULLS CAMERON TO HER FEET INTO A HALF NELSON AND CONNECTS WITH THE SUPLEX VARIANT. O’HARA TOO EXHAUSTED TO CAPITALISE.

Masters: Both competitors have given it their absolute all. Desperation move after desperation move, doing everything they can to keep themselves in the match, leaving not a single drop of gas in the tank. Back in the ring, both Cameron and O’Hara crawl to the middle of the ring and rise to a single knee. Cameron rocks O’Hara with a slap! And O’Hara responds with one of his own! Firing slaps back and forth, the slaps becoming fists and they start to rise to a vertical base still throwing punches, sweat flying off one another with each and every shot! Cameron changes to a chop right across the chest and O’Hara fires with a forearm shot to the neck. Back and forth once again. O’Hara with the Irish Whip onto the ropes and he leaps over Cameron who continues to run the ropes. She rebounds and slides through the legs of O’Hara, rolling him up into a small package.

ONEEEEE!!!!

Mercer: And O’Hara rolls out of it! Pulling Cameron to her feet and he floats around the back, pushing her up against the ropes and rolling backwards into a pin of his own!

ONEEEE!!!!

Mercer: Cameron kicks out likewise, the two race back to their feet and Cameron connects with an armdrag, O’Hara charges towards her but Cameron ducks. She turns around but O’Hara was waiting and delivers a kick to the mid section. O’Hara charges towards the ropes and Cameron hits the ones closer to her. They come back racing at one another and both connect with a forearm smash! Colliding in the middle of the ring and they go spinning into opposite corners! Again, both competitors forced to crawl across the middle of the ring but O’Hara quickly staggers back to his. And Cameron does likewise! O’Hara swings but Cameron blocks it and drops to the canvas, yanking it down! O’Hara clutches it but Cameron won’t let go! Cameron pulls O’Hara back to his feet twisting the arm! She floats around the back of O’Hara and drives him shoulder first into the turnbuckle! O’Hara comes out of the corner reeling and falls to his knees but quickly gets back to his feet and Cameron cuts him off with a forearm smash! Knocking O’Hara back into the corner and his head bounces off the top turnbuckle; however he lands on his knees and begins to crawl to the middle of the ring. Cameron follows it up with a swift kick to the ribs! The same ribs that copped a fair beating against Vic Vendetta on Showdown. Complete and control in the match, Cameron goes back to focusing on the shoulder of O’Hara, stomping on it several times until the referee is forced to intervene. She backs off as O’Hara tries to get back to his feet but she immediately rolls him up! LOOKING FOR A PIN? NO! SHE ROLLS INTO THE GODDESS’ GRASP! ANOTHER SUBMISSION MOVE AND PUTS O’HARA IN A SIMILAR POSITION TO EARLIER BEFORE! THIS TIME WITH O’HARA TRAPPED IN THE DRAGON SLEEPER! CAMERON WITH THE RIGHT ARM WRAPPED AROUND THE THROAT DRAINING THE LIFE FROM O’HARA AND USING HER LEFT ARM TRYING TO PULL THE INJURED SHOULDER OUT OF IT’S SOCKET! O’HARA FALLS BACK TRYING TO BREAK THE HOLD BUT CAMERON TRANSITIONS INTO THE BODY SCISSORS! O’HARA TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT BUT CAMERON CONTINUES TO CINCH THE LOCK IN. O’HARA SHOWING SIGNS HE’S FADING AS THE RIGHT ARM DROPS TO THE CANVAS. THE REFEREE QUICKLY MOVES INTO POSITION TO CHECK ON O’HARA. HE PICKS HIS ARM UP AND HOLDS IT UP BEFORE DROPPING IT.

Masters: NOT EVEN ONCE! O’HARA KEEPS THE ARM UP ON THE FIRST TRY AND CONTINUES TO TRY TO FIGHT OUT OF IT, TRYING TO ROLLS CAMERON ONTO HER SHOULDERS. HE’S ONCE AGAIN SHOWING SIGNS OF FADING BUT HE KEEPS THE ARM UP, DEFIANT TO REMAIN IN THE MATCH.

Cameron: QUIT! QUIT JUST LIKE YOU HAVE FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS.

O’Hara: FUCK……………..YOU….

Mercer: O’HARA TRIES ONCE AGAIN TO ROLL OUT OF THE POSITION AND THIS TIME MANAGES TO ROLL ONTO HIS STOMACH. CAMERON CONTINUES TO PULL ON THE ARM AND CINCH THE LOCK IN BUT O’HARA IS STILL ABLE TO CRAWL TO THE BOTTOM ROPE. HE’S ALMOST THERE! CAMERON RELEASES THE BODY SCISSORS TO PULL O’HARA BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING BUT HE MANAGES TO GET TO THE SECOND ROPE. O’HARA WITH HIS RIGHT HAND TIGHTLY GRIPPING THE BOTTOM ROPE, CAMERON WRAPS BOTH ARMS AROUND THE THROAT OF O’HARA TRYING TO CHOKE HIM OUT AND IT’S WORKING BUT THE REFEREE BREAKS IT UP.

ONEEEE!!! TTWOOO!!!! THREEEEE!!!! FOUUUURRRR!!!!

Masters: Cameron finally releases the hold as O’Hara coughs, trying to get some oxygen back into the lungs! O’Hara quickly staggers but to his feet but Cameron grabs him by the head AND DRIVES HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS! BITCH CAMP! BITCH CAMP! BITCH CAMP CONNECTS! SHE ROLLS HIM OVER INTO THE PIN!

ONNEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! THREEEEEEE!!!!!!! KICKOOOUUUTTTT!!!!

Masters: O’HARA JUST ABLE TO KICK OUT. O’Hara barely getting the shoulder up but Cameron remains calm and collected, she knows full well Jamie O’Hara on the verge of defeat, she cannot make one mistake. At this point, one mistake could spell doom, could turn the tide of the match and it may be the final chance she gets. But she has thrown everything at O’Hara. Absolutely everything in her arsenal and O’Hara has refused to quit, has refused to die. He has put EVERYTHING on the line tonight and he’s fighting until his spirit is gone. Cameron hits the ropes and comes crashing down on O’Hara shoulder with the knee! O’Hara winches on contact and tries to roll out of the ring once again but Cameron stops him by holding onto the top of his tights and pulls him to his feet. Cameron spins O’Hara around, pulls him in and drives her head into the shoulder! Once again O’Hara winches in pain and collapses to his knees. Cameron releases the hold and charges towards the ropes…PENALTY KICK! Cameron connects with a penalty kick focused right on the shoulder and O’Hara falls back into the corner clutching it. Cameron stands proudly over O’Hara with a grin across her face and her arms raised; O’Hara remaining rested in the corner as she begins to spew inaudible insults at him, right in his face! Cameron backs away before darting back towards the corner and drives both feet right into the shoulder and O’Hara immediately grimaced, once again clutching it. She pulls O’Hara to his feet and drags him to the middle of the ring but O’Hara collapses to his knees as Cameron keeps hold of the arm. O’Hara drops his head, reaching and clutching onto Cameron’s knee pad. He shakes in head, is he admitting defeat? We can’t hear what he’s saying, but O’Hara mumbles in the ring, shaking his head; he looks completely shattered.

O’Hara: I’m sorry…just do it…just end it all.

Mercer: A somber tone, Jamie O’Hara says he cannot fight anymore. Cameron wanted to destroy his career, prove he was just a one hit wonder, that he was never deserving of becoming a world champion. This sorry sight, to her this is exactly the man she’s seen for these past six months. No pride, no fight, no fire. Just a broken man. Cameron Ella Ava has finally done what many haven’t been able to do, what Dark Demon couldn’t do, she has broken the spirit of Jamie O’Hara! And now she’s just standing over him with a smile across the face as she releases her grasp. A “NO!” chant begins to resonate inside the stadium, the fans at ringside trying to will O’Hara on. She backs up looking to end it all with one last Goddess’ Touch! And she screams at O’Hara to get to his feet several times as O’Hara continues to show signs of giving up. Jamie O’Hara, still with his head dropped slightly nods and slowly rises to his feet as Cameron runs in — SHE STEPS UP FOR THE ENZIGURI BUT O’HARA STEPS FORWARD, JUMPS AND SWINGS THE KNEE! FFFAAAIIIITTTTTHHHHH’SSSSS MALADDDDAAAAYYYY!!! THE BOMA YE CONNECTS MID AIR! O’HARA COMPLETELY FOOLED CAMERON, A SPLIT SECOND OF ABSOLUTE BRILLIANCE TO COUNTER THE GODDESS’ TOUCH. BUT O’HARA IS TOO EXHAUSTED TO CAPITALISE. BLOOD BEGINS TO TRICKLE DOWN FROM THE MOUTH OF CAMERON ELLA AVA.

Masters: O’HARA PULLS HIMSELF TO HIS FEET USING THE TURNBUCKLE AS CAMERON USES THE ROPES IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER. O’HARA’S CHEST SLUMPED AGAINST THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND HE’S GONE, HE’S STRUGGLING TO BREATHE. HE TURNS AS CAMERON RUSHES TOWARDS HIM BUT O’HARA RACES OUT OF THE CORNER AND CUTS HER OFF, LIFTING HER INTO THE AIR, UP AND OVER HIS HEAD AND SENDS HER CRASHING INTO THE TURNBUCKLE. CAMERON FOLDS OVER AS SHE FALLS INTO THE CANVAS. SHE ROLLS ONTO HER KNEES — FFFAAAIIIITTTTTHHHHH’SSSSS MALADDDDAAAAYYYY!!! A SECOND KNEE CONNECTS AND O’HARA STAGGERS BACK TO HIS FEET, WITH A GUN GESTURE POINTED AT CAMERON. HE FIRES AND PULLS HER BACK TO HER FEET BY THE TIGHTS AND INTO A WRISTLOCK. HE SPINS HER AROUND! DREAM FOREVER! A HIGH KNEE CONNECTS TO THE JAW, SENDING SPIT AND BLOOD FLYING FROM THE MOUTH OF CAMERON ELLA AVA AND HER HEAD SNAPS BACK VIOLENTLY. BOTH COMPETITORS FALL TO THE CANVAS BUT O’HARA MANAGES TO GET THE ARM ACROSS HER STOMACH.

ONEEEEEEEE!!!!! TTTTWWWWOOOOOO!!!! TTTHHHRREEEEEEE!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“The Awakening” by COPIA hits and Jamie O’Hara rolls off Cameron Ella
Ava, crawling into the corner with his left arm resting against his stomach.The referee assists O’Hara to his feet and raises his hand in victory but O’Hara falls back to the canvas)

Announcer: Here is your winner, JAMIE OOOOOO’HAAAARRRRAAAAA!!!!!

Mercer: What a match. What a win. Jamie O’Hara finally puts a painful six months behind him, he merges victorious tonight bloodied, battered and bruised. He promised for weeks the fire, the hunger, the determination was back and I think tonight he has proven anyone who doubted him wrong.

Masters: What a contest. Back and forth, near falls and desperation moves. These two threw everything at one another, they were determined to break one another in half, crush each other to complete dust. As you said at the start, they promised to leave every drop of blood, every bead of sweat, every bitter tear and damn it they did just that! But O’Hara found the one move, the move he teased weeks ago, something completely new to get the victory. No shame, absolutely no shame in defeat tonight.

Mercer: Jamie O’Hara may have a shoulder injury but that’s not the reason he’s holding back the tears. This night, this match, this moment means so much to him, he put it all on the line mentally; defeat may have spelt the end of his career, his time in EAW being done. The doubts, the constant voices in his head tell him to quit, to leave it all behind have been put to rest.

(O’Hara pulls himself to his knees as does Cameron in the middle of the ring, the two stare at one another with O’Hara showing a grin)

Masters: Are we going to see a part two?

(O’Hara extends his hand as his music dies, Cameron looks down at his offer to broker peace. O’Hara remains on his knees and keeps the hand extended, simply shrugging as Cameron looks around the stadium contemplating. The crowd begins to applaud and it gets louder, trying to convince Cameron to shake his hand. Eventually she shakes O’Hara’s hand and both rise back to their feet and the crowd continues to applause)

Mercer: A show of class and respect from both competitors. Two of the most talented performers on the Showdown roster, EAW entirely even, showed you why tonight. That was simply one hell of a fight but O’Hara tonight, has risen once again.

(O’Hara nods, slightly bows before rolling out of the ring and makes his way up the ramp as his music returns. He turns back to the ring at the middle of the stage and looks back directly at Cameron Ella Ava. He points to head to say he outsmarted her and throws the wolfpack gesture up in the air before exiting through the curtain. Back in the ring, the crowd applauses Cameron as she drops under the bottom rope and rests on the ring apron as the camera fades to black)

(EARLIER TODAY: The camera transitions backstage — where Matt Ryder is pacing back and forth in the hallway. on the phone with someone.)

Matt Ryder: Bro, can you believe it?! I got the job! Yeah, no, I even got to host the Hall of Fame! This is going to be a HUGE turnaround for me! I swear to it, this is going to the Year of the Broskis! Uh huh… yeah, of course—

(His phone suddenly vibrates, as he receives a text message.)

Matt Ryder: Okay, dude, I gotta go… but talk to me later, okay? Alright, see you then.

(He hangs up the phone to check the text message, and his eyes are that of shock.)

Matt Ryder: WHOA WHOA WHOA… IS THIS EVEN LEGAL?! HOW DID THIS WILDERBEAST GET MY NUMBER?!

(He proceeds to scroll through the text…)

Matt Ryder: BRO! NO! I’M NOT GETTING EDEN’D… NOT TODAY!

(Matt Ryder lays down his phone on a table next to him, walking off with a disgusting look on his face — when suddenly El Landerson comes walking up to a random backstage manager.)

El Landerson: I won’t to fight you at Day 2 EAW PPV.

(The manager looks at him weirdly, and walks away to leave a disappointed El Landerson, until all of a sudden he sees Matt Ryder’s phone vibrate, he walks over to it… seeing something interesting to him on the phone, he smiles widely, eyes widened.)

El Landerson: Hot tamale, amigo!

(He proceeds to text the person back, walking off with the phone, as the camera fades elsewhere.)

(A video package plays; highlighting the feud between Cerberus, The Pizza Boy, and Drake & Jones, and Judas – beginning from Drake & Jones defeating Stand & Deliver, the Heart Break Boy’s retirement, the formation of Cerberus, Cerberus’ upset defeat over Drake & Jones for the Tag Team Championships at the Grand Rampage, and Drake & Jones’ interference in the Pizza Boy’s National Elite Title defense against Judas at Triple Threat, costing him the match and his Championship)

(Camera transitions back to the capacity crowd in New Miami Stadium, chanting for The Pizza Boy as the camera focuses on the sight of several Ladders strategically places upon the stage and down the ramp, several tables laid about around the ring, and several chairs within the ring itself. The camera finally focuses upon the National Elite Championship and EAW Tag Team Championships hanging above the ring together)

Announcer: The following contest will be contested for the National Elite Championship and the EAW Tag Team Championships… AND IT IS A TABLES! LADDERS!! AND CHAIRS MATCH!!!…..

(The Miami crowd erupts with cheers)

(The lights in the stadium go out for several seconds before a wall of white flames across the stage illuminates it)

(The wall of flames dies down to reveal Judas crouched down upon the stage, staring at the floor silently as “Ten Tonne Skeleton” by Royal Blood plays all throughout New Miami Stadium)

Ryder: I’m getting goosebumps, Stew, can you feel it?!

( As the audience simmers down, the arena lights fade to black until there is nothing but darkness. After a few moments, a single spotlight shines down on the center of the stage as Judas steps out, kneels on the ground in a stance of meditation as he brandishes a sword sheathed on his back. )

“Even here I feel an outcast.”

“I will not falter.”

“I will not waste this chance.”

“I am ready.”

( A single, constant siren begins to rise on the P.A. System as Judas rises from his kneeling position, slowly unsheathing his sword, waiting. )

“Ryūjin no ken o kurae!”

( “Ten Tonne Skeleton” by Royal Blood hits at full blast as green smoke rises, green flames shoot up from the stage and green lights flash around the arena. Judas fully unsheathes his dragonblade and spins it around, causing two green dragons to enter from the side entrances to ramp. Judas stalks the dragons as they make their way to ringside and circle the ring. Judas leaps up on to the turnbuckle and flips over before rolling to the center of the ring and spinning his sword around one final time. )

“Mizu no yō ni nagare.”

( Judas sheathes his sword once more as the music begins to die down. )

Announcer: Introducing Team Number One…. First, making his way towards the ring…. He hails from The Dark Zone…. He weighed in tonight at 218 Pounds… HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION…. HE IS “THE AGENT OF CHAOS”, JUUUUUUUDDDDDDDDAAAAASSSSSSSSS!!!….

Stew: Oh, I can feel it, alright, I can feel heat of those flames all the way from over here! This man, Judas, has proven to be a force to be reckoned with since he first stepped inside an EAW ring not too long ago. His alliance with Drake & Jones that’s come about seems like an unlikely one, but ANYONE is a suitable alliance when there’s gold to be had, and there’s certainly plenty of that in this contest!

(Judas gets in the ring and paces around as his theme fades out… After a moment, the lights in New Miami Stadium once again go out… A spotlight shines down upon a group of band player with trumpets. One line of trumpets sound, followed by the next, and followed by the third set as they all sound their instruments together loudly before the spotlight on them goes out)

(The sound of a keyboard being played is heard in the arena before several more spotlights appear upon other band players, one with a microphone in hand as smoke fills the Stadium)

“The winner takes all…..”

“It’s the thrill of one more kill!”

“The LAST one to fall….”

“Will never sacrifice their will!”

(A quick drum solo plays before two bright spotlights appear on Drake Jaeger – dressed in pink and black attire and carrying his wooden table with a caricature of the Heart Break Boy painted on it – and Tiberius Jones – dressed in yellow and black attire and carrying his thick wooden table with a painting of his team killing their opponents on it – as they both stand on each side of the stage while the rest of the arena is filled with laser lights and smoke bursting up from the stage and ramp)

Stew: Oh dear Lord…

“Don’t ever look back on the World closing in!”

“Be on the attack with your wings on the wind!”

“Ohhh, the games will beginnn!”

(Drake & Jones enthusiastically start to taunt and celebrate as pyro explodes all around the stage with the chorus of the song)

“AND IT’S SWEEEEET, SWEEEEET, SWEET VICTORY, YEAH!”

(Drake & Jones start making their way down towards the ring together while an unamused Judas looks on)

“AND IT’S OUR’S FOR THE TAKING!”

“IT’S OUR’S FOR THE FIGHT!”

Announcer: AND HIS PARTNERS… THEY WEIGHED IN TONIGHT AT A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 408 POUNDS…. THEY ARE THE TEAM OF DRAKE “THE TERMINATOR” JAEGER…. “THE BRAZEN BEAST”, TIBERIUS JONES….

“AND IT’S SWEEEEET, SWEEEET, SWEET VICTORY, YEAH!”

Announcer: THEY ARE DRAKE! AND!! JOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEESSSSS!!!….

“AND THE ONE WHO’S LAST TO FALL….”

(Drake & Jones each stand up on the turnbuckles of the ring, proudly holding up their tables while Judas continues to pace)

“THE WINNER TAKES ALL!!”

Ryder: You gotta give it to these guys, if nothing else, they know how to put on a show! They’re one of the most prolific tag teams in the game for a reason, and you can guarantee that confidence doesn’t come from nowhere! They’re every bit as good as they say they are, and they aim to prove that tonight by becoming two-time Tag Team Champions!

(Drake & Jones & Judas eye the Championships above the ring as the song fades away as several seconds pass)

(The several men suddenly start marching down the ramp, dressed in armor and carrying large shields with a Cerberus upon them while Drake & Jones and Judas look on)

(The several men completely surround three sides of the ring, slam their large shields down, and draw long spears out, pointing at the ring)

(Another group of men dressed in grey and white armor and carrying the same Cerberus sigil march down the ramp, stretching out down both sides of it, all standing stoically next to one another)

(One more group of men make their way out, filling the left and right side of the stage, all equipped with bows and arrows)

(The Game of Thrones Main Title Theme plays all throughout New Miami Stadium as Brian Daniels and Cyclone make their way out to the stage, dressed in grey and white Game of Thrones-inspired attire)

(Several banners drop from above with a Pizza Slice sigil upon them as The Pizza Boy rides out on a white horse behind Cyclone and Brian Daniels, with a fierce look upon his face and dressed in his own Game of Thrones-inspired attire)

“Nock!”

(The archers upon the stage get ready)

“Draw!”

(The archers lift their arrows, ready to launch them)

“LOOSE!”

(Pyro that looks like dozen arrows flies across New Miami Stadium as the crowd erupts with cheers)

(The Game of Thrones Main Title theme comes to a halt as “Dragonrider” by Motoi Sakuraba plays all throughout New Miami Stadium while The Pizza Boy gets down from his horse and joins Cerberus as they make their way down the ramp while the soldiers on both sides of it lift their swords high up as each man walks past them)

Announcer: And their opponents!…. First, making his way towards the ring…. Hailing from New York City, New York!…. He weighed in tonight at 175 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE HEARTBURN KID”…. THE PIZZA BOOOOOOOOYYYY!!!….. And his partners…. They are the team of “WHITE RIDER”, CYCLONE…. “DRAGONBORN”, BRIAN DANIELS…. THEY ARE THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…. THEY ARE CEEERRRRRRRBBBBEEEEERRRRUUUUSSSSSS!!!…..

Stew: And just like that, this unlikely trio matches or perhaps trumps their opponents in the eccentricity of their entrances here at Pain For Pride! What a display!

Ryder: That doesn’t mean anything when it comes down to it, Stew! All that matters in this is who can climb up and pull down those Titles!

Stew: And I can only imagine what kind of demolition derby awaits us for the sake of those Championships…

Ryder: I can’t wait! AND NEITHER CAN DRAKE & JONES AND JUDAS EITHER AS THEY RUSH IN AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE AS THEIR OPPONENTS ENTER THE RING! BOTH SIDES COLLIDE WITH ONE ANOTHER AS FISTS AND WEAPONS GO FLYING ALL OVER THE PLACE!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: THE FIRST EVER TABLES, LADDERS, AND CHAIRS MATCH IN PAIN FOR PRIDE HISTORY IS UNDERWAY AS BOTH SIDES LAY INTO ONE ANOTHER! THE PIZZA BOY GOING AT IT WITH JUDAS AS CYCLONE AND TIBERIUS JONES LAY INTO ONE ANOTHER WHILE BRIAN DANIELS AND DRAKE JAEGER CLASH!! TIBERIUS PUTTING THAT THICK TABLE HE BROUGHT WITH HIM TO GOOD USE ON CYCLONE AS HE DRIVES IT STRAIGHT INTO HIS GUT! AND TIBERIUS DRIVES THE EDGE OF THAT TABLE INTO THE FACE OF CYCLONE NOW! CYCLONE DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE AS TIBERIUS SEIZES THE OPPORTUNITY TO OVERWHELM BRIAN DANIELS WITH DRAKE AS THEY BOTH LAY INTO HIM! Daniels is held back by Tiberius as Drake uses the chance to send closed-fist shots right into the face of Daniels! Absolutely holding nothing back here, this is an environment where former Hexa-gun members THRIVE! The Pizza Boy sends Judas to the outside with a big clothesline, but Judas catches himself on the apron! Daniels has already been busted open as a result of the multiple closed-fist shots he just took from Jaeger as Tiberius drops him on the canvas!

Ryder: The Pizza Boy’s got Drake & Jones in his sights! HE RUSHES–NO! Judas is back up on the apron as he pulls Pizza Boy right back, choking the life out of him! DRAKE & JONES WITH SIMULTANEOUS SUPERKICKS TO THE JAW OF PIZZA BOY!! The Pizza Boy drops down to the canvas and he could be OUT! Just like that, the team of Drake & Jones and Judas has taken control here! Drake glances up at those Championships hanging high above the ring! He can taste victory! Drake quickly exits to the outside, seeking out a Ladder! CYCLONE SPRINGS UP OUT OF NOWHERE AND NEARLY TAKES DRAKE’S HEAD OFF WITH A BIG LARIAT! Cyclone’s looking for a chance to turn this around for his team as he drags Drake up! TIBERIUS RUSHES IN WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE TO THE BACK OF CYCLONE! Drake’s dazed, but he takes advantage with a spinning mule kick to the gut of Cyclone! Judas goes for a ladder now as Drake & Jones look to finish off Cyclone! Drake pulls Cyclone up, getting him in a full nelson! We know what’s coming as Tiberius gets ready! HE STARTS CHARGING INTO THE ROPES! HERE HE COMES! SPECIAL BEAM CANNON!!!

Stew: NO–CYCLONE BREAKS FROM THAT FULL NELSON AND SENDS DRAKE JAEGER INTO THE INCOMING TIBERIUS JONES AS BOTH MEN CRACK SKULLS!! JUDAS HAS A LADDER IN HIS CONTROL AS HE DRIVES THE END OF IT INTO THE SPINE OF AN UNSUSPECTING CYCLONE ON THE OUTSIDE!! A DAZED AND CONFUSED TIBERIUS BACKS UP RIGHT INTO BRIAN DANIELS AS HE PULLS HIM IN! A HEINOUS GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS AS TIBERIUS IS DROPPED RIGHT ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! Daniels looks like a madman! He’s right back up as a stream of blood runs down his forehead as a result of the assault from Drake & Jones earlier! He turns his attention to Judas on the outside! DANIELS DOESN’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT A SECOND LONGER AS HE COMES BARRELING FORWARD! JUDAS STANDS HIS GROUND WITH THAT LADDER!! DANIELS LEAPS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND JUST NARROWLY CATCHES THE EXPOSED HEAD OF JUDAS ON THE WAY DOWN AS BOTH MEN GO CRASHING TO THE MAT ON THE OUTSIDE!!

Ryder: The Pizza Boy seems to be the only man left here as he rises back up to his feet with a scowl across his face! He’s not looking up at those Championships! Those can wait as far as he’s concerned! The only thing on his mind is punishing the men that made his life a living Hell for these past several months! Judas and Drake Jaeger are sitting ducks there on the outside and the Pizza Boy knows it! He immediately starts ascending to the nearest corner of the ring! He’s looking to fly! THE PIZZA BOY IS PERCHED! TIBERIUS JONES RUSHES IN OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THAT THICK OAK TABLE OF HIS AS HE DRIVES IT INTO THE RIBS OF THE PIZZA BOY!! THE PIZZA BOY DROPS DOWN ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, LOSING EVERY OUNCE OF MOMENTUM HE WAS LOOKING TO TAKE AS TIBERIUS IS BACK IN THIS! Oh boy, and Tiberius is looking to make further use of that table of his! He starts setting it up! Tiberius has that table set up, looking to emphatically put his opponent through it! I can’t imagine the force it would take to break a table like that, but he’s gonna damn well try! Tiberius nails the Pizza Boy with a few hard shots to the skull before climbing up there with him! HE SETS HIM UP! NO–DANIELS ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING!

Stew: BRIAN DANIELS IS BACK IN THIS AS HE RUSHES UP BEHIND, CLUBBING THE SPINE OF TIBERIUS WITH FOREARMS! DANIELS NOW! HE’S LOOKING FOR A POTENTIAL POWERBOMB ONTO THAT TABLE, BUT TIBERIUS ABSOLUTELY REFUSES!! TIBERIUS IS HOLDING ONTO THE TOP ROPE FOR DEAR LIFE! THE PIZZA BOY–HE BITES HIM!! THE PIZZA BOY BITES THE FOREHEAD OF TIBERIUS JONES AS JONES IMMEDIATELY LOSES HIS GRIP ON THE ROPE AS BRIAN DANIELS SENDS HIM CRASHING DOWN HARD ONTO THAT OAK TABLE WITH A VICIOUS POWERBOMB!! IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO BREAK IT! THE PIZZA BOY LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE! HE’S GOT HIMSELF UP ON THE TOP! FLYING CROSSBODY!!! A FLYING CROSSBODY CONNECTS AS THE BODIES OF TIBERIUS AND THE PIZZA BOY ONLY BOUNCE OFF OF THAT THICK TABLE!!

Ryder: Cyclone is back up on the outside and with a ladder in hand as he seeks to win this match! His entire team is left standing amongst all of this chaos! Now’s as good a time as any! Cerberus and The Pizza Boy set up that ladder as Brian Daniels starts to ascend! DRAKE JAEGER SLIDES INTO THE RING, TRYING DESPERATELY TO STOP THEIR OPPONENT’S ATTEMPT TO WIN THIS, BUT HE’S IMMEDIATELY OUTNUMBERED BY THE PIZZA BOY AND CYCLONE! BOTH MEN LAYING INTO DRAKE! DANIELS IS CLOSE! LOOK OUT!! JUDAS SPRINGBOARDS IN FROM OUT OF NOWHERE, NAILING THE LADDER WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK AS BRIAN DANIELS IS SENT TOPPLING OVER WITH THE LADDER, LANDING RIBS-FIRST UPON THE TOP ROPE AND DROPPING TO THE OUTSIDE!

Stew: THE PIZZA BOY IS BLINDED AS JUDAS PULLS HIM IN!! LOOKING FOR A FALCON ARROW! NO–THE PIZZA BOY ESCAPES IT, STILL BLINDED! JUDAS GOES STRAIGHT FOR HIM!! CHAIR SHOT!! THE PIZZA BOY MANAGES TO STUMBLE ONTO A CHAIR, SWINGING IT STRAIGHT INTO THE SKULL OF JUDAS!! THE PIZZA BOY IS BLIND, SWINGING FOR THE FENCES WITH THAT CHAIR AS HE CRACKS IT OFF THE SKULL OF JUDAS ONCE MORE! HE SWINGS IT INTO THE SHOULDER OF JUDAS NOW! ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT TO THE SKULL!! LOOK AT THE DENTS IN THAT CHAIR! JESUS CHRIST! DRAKE JAEGER AND CYCLONE CONTINUE TO GO AT IT AS CYCLONE SENDS DRAKE FLYING STRAIGHT INTO THE SIDE OF THE TIMEKEEPER’S BOOTH WITH A BIG HIP TOSS! JUDAS DROPS TO HIS KNEES AS THE PIZZA BOY FINALLY GETS SOME SIGHT BACK, LOOKING DOWN ON HIS RIVAL! HE SWINGS ONCE MORE!

Ryder: LOWBLOW!! TIBERIUS JONES CATCHES THE PIZZA BOY WITH A LOWBLOW FROM BEHIND!! Tiberius is back in this with a look of absolute HATE for his opponent as he grabs a nearby chair! AND TIBERIUS JUST VICIOUSLY SWINGS THE CHAIR OFF OF THE BACK OF THE PIZZA BOY’S SKULL! Tiberius tosses the chair, berating his opponent! Hold on! I think Tiberius is looking for some payback as he eyes that oak table of his still set up in the ring! He immediately pulls The Pizza Boy in! PICKING HIM UP!! POWERBOMB–JESUS!!! A POWERBOMB CONNECTS AS THE BACK OF THE PIZZA BOY’S HEAD NAILS THE EDGE OF THAT OAK TABLE!! TIBERIUS DIDN’T EVEN ATTEMPT TO SEND HIM ONTO THE TABLE!! THE PIZZA BOY COULD BE OUT! Tiberius looks to win this now as he grabs that ladder and sets it back up in the center of the ring! He starts to climb!

Stew: Brian Daniels favors his ribs as he struggles to get back into the ring, looking to stop Tiberius! Drake Jaeger meanwhile has taken back control of the brawl between he and Cyclone on the outside as he drives a table down into the body of Cyclone again and again and again! This guy’s lost it! He starts setting that table up on the outside, looking to put Cyclone through it! Tiberius is quickly on his way to the top as Daniels manages to get back to his feet and stumble over to the ladder! He starts climbing! Tiberius is determined to end this right here and now! He’s inches away! TIBERIUS GRABS THE CHAMPIONSHIPS! THERE’S A SHOT TO THE GUT FROM DANIELS! ANOTHER SHOT! TIBERIUS FIRES BACK WITH A STRIKE OF HIS OWN! DANIELS WITH A MERCILESS HEADBUTT NOW! TIBERIUS WITH A HEADBUTT OF HIS OWN! DANIELS IMMEDIATELY FIRES BACK WITH ANOTHER HEADBUTT! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! TIBERIUS IS ABOUT TO DROP! Cyclone fights his way off of the table on the outside! HE GRABS DRAKE AND LITERALLY SENDS HIM GLIDING ACROSS THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE! WHAT POWER! JUDAS IS BACK UP, NIPPING AT THE HEELS OF DANIELS! DANIELS CAN’T FIGHT OFF BOTH OF THESE MEN! JUDAS SUCCESSFULLY PULLS DANIELS BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS AS DANIELS LANDS FLAT ON HIS FEET!

THE LADDER GOES TOPPLING OVER AS TIBERIUS JONES GOES FLYING OFF AND CRASHING STRAIGHT THROUGH THAT TABLE ON THE OUTSIDE–MY GOD!!! TIBERIUS JONES MAY BE THE FIRST CASUALTY OF THIS CONTEST!! HE’S NOT MOVING! A battered and beaten Drake Jaeger is sent rolling back into the ring by Cyclone as Daniels looks on… Both of these men look like hungry carnivores ready to tear into a piece of meat as they eye Drake Jaeger… I think Drake is realizing what kind of dire situation he’s in as he starts to rise back to his feet! HE IMMEDIATELY BOLTS TO THE OUTSIDE! CYCLONE FOLLOWS RIGHT AFTER HIM AND TAKES DRAKE OUT WITH A BIG LARIAT ON THE OUTSIDE! HE’S GOT NOWHERE TO GO! Cyclone absolutely has his number in this contest as he sends Drake rolling right back into the ring while Daniels grabs that thick oak table Tiberius brought in, setting it up in the corner… This may be all she wrote for Drake Jaeger!

Stew: Tiberius Jones is out of the picture and his partner is just about to join him! Cyclone sends Drake right into that table with a big irish whip! Drake’s doing all he possibly can to get back in this, but he’s overpowered and outnumbered! CERBERUS LOOKS TO FINISH THIS! DRAKE RISES BACK UP! DANIELS AND CYCLONE CHARGE!! VICTORY OR DEATH!!!! NO–JUDAS MANAGES TO THROW A STEEL CHAIR STRAIGHT INTO THE FACE OF AN ONCOMING BRIAN DANIELS AS CYCLONE SUCCESSFULLY CONNECTS WITH THE DARK FLOW INTO DRAKE JAEGER AS BOTH MEN GO CRASHING HARD INTO THAT THICK TABLE!!!! That table STILL unable to break as Judas struggles to get back up! Daniels is battered, but not far behind him! Judas with a superkick to the knee of Daniels, dropping him right back down! WAGES OF SIN!!! THAT SPIKE RANA DRIVES THE SKULL OF DANIELS HARD INTO THE CANVAS AS JUDAS MAY HAVE A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO SEIZE! Judas is back on his feet, eying those Championships overhead! He grabs that ladder in the ring and sets it back up, looking to climb! It doesn’t look so far away, but when you’re battered and beaten and under pressure, those Titles must feel miles away! Cyclone is back up to a vertical base as he starts his ascent up the other side of that ladder! I don’t think Judas even notices! JUDAS WITH FINGERTIPS ON THE GOLD!! HE’S STOPPED!

Ryder: Cyclone with a shot to the face of Judas! Another hard shot! Judas replies by driving the face of Cyclone into the top of the ladder! Judas now with clubbing blows to the back of Cyclone! CYCLONE POWERS THROUGH WITH A SERIES OF SHOTS INTO JUDAS! He refuses to let this slip through his fingers! He wants his team to prevail more than anything! Judas is looking dazed! The willpower and sheer strength of Cyclone may be too much for him to handle! Cyclone just doesn’t let up! Another right! Another! ANOTHER! JUDAS DROPS DOWN!

Ryder: The only two competitors left in the ring are Drake Jaeger and Brian Daniels as both beaten and battered men struggle to push themselves back up to a vertical base! Their bodies have to be in excruciating pain, but so long as there’s breath left in the other, they have to keep going! Both men are up! CAUSTIC ECHO!!!! DANIELS SOUGHT TO END THAT EXCHANGE BEFORE IT HAPPENED, BUT DRAKE HAD IT SCOUTED AS HE CATCHES DANIELS FROM BEHIND!! A BIG ROCK THE DRAGON SUPLEX CONNECTS! DANIELS IS BACK UP!! HE’S ALREADY BACK UP ON HIS FEET BEFORE DRAKE EVEN KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED AS HE GETS BACK UP TO MEET A SICKENINGLY LOUD KNIFE-EDGE CHOP TO THE CHEST!!

AN ELBOW TO THE FACE! ANOTHER ELBOW! A KNEE TO THE GUT! AND DANIELS TOPS IT ALL OFF WITH A HIGH KICK OFF THE SKULL AS DRAKE IS LEFT LAID UP AGAINST THAT OAK TABLE, FREE FOR DANIELS TO DO WHATEVER HE’D LIKE!

WHAT A BRUTAL CONTEST THIS HAS BEEN!

Ryder: That may have been enough for Daniels to take back control of this contest! All he has to do is pull those Championships down! That’s all! That very same ladder remains in there as Daniels starts to work his way back up to a vertical base… Hold on… Daniels doesn’t look like he’s focused on any ladder! He’s got his eye on Drake Jaeger! He’s stalking his opponent! Hold on! Tiberius Jones manages to roll back into the ring! He’s not finished in this contest just yet! Daniels has switched targets, but the song remains the same!

A LEAPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP CONNECTS ONTO CYCLONE THROUGH THE TABLE!!

Stew: Tiberius grabs another table on the outside and sends it sliding back into the ring as both he and Judas slide in!

Cyclone goes to the outside, dragging Judas with him! Judas tries to fight back with an elbow! A second elbow connects, but Cyclone completely shuts it down with a Superman Punch!! Cyclone quickly makes his way back over towards the ramp, grabbing the first ladder he sees before he makes his way back over to a downed Judas! He’s got something sadistic in mind, I have no doubt! Cyclone bridges that ladder between the barricade and the ring apron, looking to take Judas completely out of the equation here! Cyclone grabs Judas, pulling him up with him on the apron! Judas fights from Cyclone’s grasp and connects with a Slingblade that takes Cyclone down hard onto that unforgiving apron!! Judas doesn’t look satisfied just yet!

TIBERIUS AND DANIELS LAYING INTO ONE ANOTHER WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS!! Drake throws ladders and chairs alike onto those tables before he rolls back into the ring, still feeling the affects of the assault he took from The Pizza Boy earlier!

Hold on… Drake looks like he has something in mind as he searches for something in his boot… He… HE PULLS OUT A PAIR OF HANDCUFFS! What the Hell could he have in mind with those?!

(“Chic n’ Stu” by System of a Down plays all throughout the arena as The Pizza Boy drops down to the canvas, landing on his feet and dropping to his knees as he holds up both the National Elite Championship and the EAW Tag Team Championships while the Miami crowd erupts with cheers)

Announcer: THE WINNERS OF THIS CONTEST…. AND STILLLLLL YOUR EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…. BRIAN DANIELS AND CYCLONE…. CEEERRRRRBBEEEERRRUUUSSSS!!!!…..

Stew: THE PIZZA BOY HAS DONE IT! HE’S FINALLY BEATEN DRAKE & JONES! HE’S BEATEN JUDAS!

Announcer: AND YOUR NEEEEEEWWWWWW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION….. THE PIZZA BBBBBBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYYYYY!!!!

(A battered and beaten Brian Daniels and Cyclone are handed the EAW Tag Team Championships while The Pizza Boy holds up the National Elite Championship)

Ryder: One of the most brutal, back and forth contests I’ve ever seen, Stew! These six men just shortened their careers, and shortened their lives before our eyes just for the right to walk out with those Championships!

Stew: Every single one of these men put their livelihood on the line to walk out of Pain For Pride with the gold, but only one side could prevail! Drake & Jones and Judas put on a career-making performance tonight, but it just wasn’t enough in the end!

(A livid Drake Jaeger demands for somebody to uncuff him from the top of the ladder as The Pizza Boy and Cerberus look on)

Drake (no mic): YOU F*CKING IDIOTS! GET ME DOWN! GET ME THE F*CK DOWN! I HATE YOU PEOPLE! I HATE THIS STUPID CITY! I–

Ryder: THE PIZZA BOY GRABS THE LADDER?! HE’S TIPPING IT OVER!!! LOOK OUT!!!

(Drake Jaeger goes crashing through the pile of tables, ladders and chairs on the side of the ring as the ladder he’s handcuffed to goes with him)

Stew: JESUS CHRIST!!!

Ryder: THE PIZZA BOY JUST PUT THE FINAL NAIL IN HIS COFFIN! MONTHS OF PAIN AND AGONY JUST GOT UNLOADED!! DRAKE JAEGER HAS BEEN SWALLOWED WHOLE BY THE EVERY TABLE, EVERY LADDER, AND EVERY CHAIR HE SET UP THERE ON THE OUTSIDE!! HE’S NOT MOVING AN INCH!!

Stew: I can’t condone what The Pizza Boy just did, but I don’t think I’m shedding a tear either! Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy!

Ryder: Someone get a medic out here for Drake for christsakes!

(The Pizza Boy and Cerberus celebrate in the ring with their Championships as the crowd cheers them on while EMTs rush out to check on Drake Jaeger and Judas)

( Pain for Pride 10 LIVE! June 24th and 25th, 2017 at Met Life Stadium! )

(A video package plays showcasing the formation of Omerta, Scott Oasis claiming the World Heavyweight Championship against Brian Daniels, his victories over Tig Kelly, Zack Crash, and Jacob Senn, Lucian Black’s struggle to claim the World Heavyweight Championship, Lucian Black announcing his entry in the title match at Pain for Pride, and the recent weeks of showdowns between the two men.)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall… AND IS FOR THE EAW WOOORRRRLLLLDDDDD HEEAAAVVVYYYWWWEEIIIGGGHHTTTT CHHAAAMMPPIOONNNSSHHHIIIPPPPP!!!

(The camera spins over to the titantron as we see a barrel of a gun displayed on the titantron. A bullet begins to enter the chamber, with a name scratched into the bullet, as this repeats with the following names.)

“BRIAN DANIELS”

“TIG KELLY”

“JACOB SENN”

“LUCIAN BLACK”

(The final round locks into place as the gun points directly towards an image of Lucian Black as it begins to aim down the sight and the shot fires.)

“It’s High Noon!”

(“Bad Guy” by Eminem hits the speakers as The New Miami Stadium jumps up in anger as Scott Oasis walks out to the stage as smoke begins to float on the stage. Scott is seen wearing a McCree-esque attire with a long version of the signature jacket and taped-up fists.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from Baltimore, Maryland… weighing in at 260 pounds… he is THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW WOOOORRRRLLLLDDDDD HEEEAVVYYYWEEIIIGGHHTTT CHHHAAMMMPPPIOOONNNNN… “THE ICEMAN”… “THE CODE OF STRENGTH”… SCCOOOTTTTTTTTT OAASSSIIIISSSSS!!!

(Scott Oasis walks to the ring as he removes the jacket before walking up the steel steps and goes over to the turnbuckle. He climbs on top of the turnbuckle as he removes the World Heavyweight Championship from his waist and holds it high in the air before jumping down in the ring.)

Stew-O: This is the big time, boys! The World Heavyweight Champion is here and he’s ready to defend his championship at the biggest stage possible in the biggest match of his career! This war has been all about the control Omerta has over the World Heavyweight Championship and tonight, it could very well end!

Matt Ryder: Stew-Bro, Scott Oasis has went through the best that Dynasty has been able to throw towards him. When Brian Daniels thought he could end him, he was defeated. Tig Kelly thought he could do it, he was swatted away! Jacob Senn was sure he could do it, but he failed like the rest of them! I highly doubt that my boy Scott Oasis is going to fail on a stage like Pain for Pride!

(“Locked and Loaded” by Godsmack echoes throughout the arena as the Miami crowd bursts out in thundering cheers that surround the arena as Lucian Black steps out in a special gold-and-black variant of his usual attire as he walks to the stage.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing the challenger, he is from San Francisco, California… he weighs in at 265 pounds… “The Unsung Hero”… “The Mastodon”… LUUCCCIIIIAAAANNNNN BLLAAACCCCKKKKK!!!

(Lucian Black stands on the stage as he makes notice of the fan reaction by taunting towards them before roaring like an unleashed animal in the air as red pyrotechnics fly throughout the air and around the arena as Lucian makes his way to the ring.)

Matt Ryder: Lucian Black thinks he might be intimidating the World Heavyweight Champion with something like that, but he can’t get inside the head of Scott Oasis! Scott’s going to show him that all of this is just for show and when you step up against The Code of Strength, there’s simply nothing you can do about his power, bro!

Stew-O: Lucian Black has struggled to gain the World Heavyweight Championship, years he has devoted to attaining this one goal, but this could be the one! He’s looking to end the war between Omerta and Dynasty for the championship and getting the victory on the grandest stage of them all will certainly play a massive role in that! It’s also going to help that in this match, Omerta is banned from ringside to help Scott in any way, shape, or form!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: Scott Oasis hands the referee the championship as Lucian Black stands across the ring from him! Scott walks up towards Lucian BUT LUCIAN SPRINTS WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM RIGHT TOWARDS HIM… SPEAR! SPEAR! OH MY! LUCIAN HAS ALREADY DROPPED SCOTT WITH THE SPEAR! HE JUST TORE RIGHT THROUGH SCOTT WITH THAT MOVE! UNBELIEVABLE! COULD WE ALREADY HAVE A NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION RIGHT HERE? LUCIAN BLACK SCRAMBLES FOR THE COVER AS HE HOOKS OASIS BY THE LEG!

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

Matt Ryder: NO WAY BRO! SCOTT OASIS JUST GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE AS HE PULLS HIMSELF OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND AWAY FROM LUCIAN BLACK! WHAT A START TO WHAT’S BOUND TO BE AN EXPLOSIVE CONTEST BETWEEN THESE TWO! Scott scrambles to the barricade as he tries to create separation between the two, but Lucian isn’t going to let him go far! He slides outside AND MEETS OASIS WITH A MASSIVE UPPERCUT TO THE JAW BEFORE TOSSING HIM RIGHT BACK INTO THE RING! Lucian slides back into the ring as Scott’s trying to recover from that spear, but Lucian is just on him and relentless about it!

Stew-O: Lucian Black shoves Scott Oasis back into the corner DRIVING THAT FOREARM INTO HIS NECK WITH THE CORNER LARIATS! ANOTHER ONE! A THIRD! AGAIN! AGAIN! Lucian stops as he runs the ropes as Scott Oasis teeters out of the corner WITH LUCIAN RUNNING BACK IN WITH THE BIG BOOT! NO! SCOTT CATCHES HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS AS HE THROWS HIM BACK WITH THE SAMOAN DROP! SCOTT HAS COME BACK FROM THAT RAGING ONSLAUGHT FROM THE MASTODON! Lucian rolls onto the apron from the impact AND SCOTT RUSHES IN AND BASEBALL SLIDES LUCIAN ONTO THE FLOOR!

Matt Ryder: THAT’S RIGHT! MY BOY SCOTT OASIS IS SHOWING UP THIS CHUMP TONIGHT! WE ALL KNOW THAT LUCIAN BLACK ALWAYS CHOKES IN THESE BIG MATCH SITUATIONS AND EVEN THOUGH HE CAME IN STRONG WITH THAT SPEAR, SCOTT HAS JUST TURNED THE TIDE OF THIS MATCH! Scott stands back up, still holding his stomach from the spear he suffered at the start of the match, as he makes his way to the outside! Scott grabs Lucian by the head DRIVING HIM RIGHT INTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE BY THE FACE! LUCIAN STEPS BACK FROM THE BLOW BUT SCOTT GRABS HIM AS HE DRIVES HIS FACE RIGHT BACK INTO THE TABLE! THAT’S RIGHT! GIVE IT TO HIM, SCOTT!

Stew-O: WAIT A SECOND! LUCIAN BLACK STOPS HIMSELF AND STRIKES WITH AN ELBOW INTO THE CHEST OF SCOTT OASIS! Scott stumbles back AS LUCIAN GRABS SCOTT AND DRIVES HIS FACE RIGHT INTO THE RING APRON! THE THUD FROM THAT WAS JUST SICKENING TO HEAR! Scott simply lies on the apron as Lucian grabs his head DRIVING IT BACK INTO THE APRON! NO! SCOTT SHOVES LUCIAN FACE-FIRST INTO THE METAL RING POST! THAT MUST HAVE RUNG LUCIAN’S BELL BIG TIME!

Matt Ryder: SCOTT OASIS IS BACK AT IT AGAIN AS HE REGAINED CONTROL OF THIS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH AGAINST LUCIAN BLACK! Scott takes advantage of that shot as he grabs Lucian by his hair and takes him back over to our announce table AS HE LIFTS HIM HIGH IN THE AIR AND THROWS HIM RIGHT ON TOP OF IT WITH THE FRONT SUPLEX! THE REFEREE IS CONTINUING HIS COUNT AS BOTH MEN NEED TO GET BACK INTO THE RING! Scott drags Lucian off of the announce table as he throws him back into the ring! Scott returns back into the ring as grabs Lucian by the neck while bring him up to his feet LIFTING THE MASSIVE MAN HIGH IN THE AIR! THE STRENGTH AND POWER OF SCOTT OASIS ON FULL DISPLAY RIGHT HERE AS HE HAS HIM DANGLING HIGH IN THE AIR WITH THE BLOOD RUSHING TO HIS HEAD! Scott marches towards the center of the ring DROPPING LUCIAN RIGHT ON HIS HEAD WITH THE BRAINBUSTER! LIGHTS OUT FOR LUCIAN! SCOTT ROLLS LUCIAN ON HIS SHOULDERS AS HE COVERS HIM FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!

Stew-O: LUCIAN BLACK DOESN’T LET THAT TAKE HIM DOWN AS HE KICKS OUT OF THE PIN! Scott Oasis jumps up to his feet RIGHT AS HE BEGINS FURIOUSLY STOMPING ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD OUT OF FRUSTRATION! REPEATED STOMPS ARE JUST POUNDING HIS HEAD LIKE A HAMMER RIGHT NOW! Oasis moves from the stomps as Lucian tries to get back to his feet STRIKING WITH A MASSIVE KICK INTO THE STOMACH THAT FLOORS LUCIAN ONCE MORE AS THE ABUSE HE’S ENDURING RIGHT NOW IS STRAIGHT TORTURE! Scott Oasis takes a moment to let the fans hear about it as he starts mocking Lucian Black, letting them know he’s disappointed in the man he’s facing, as he just continues to stomp away!

Matt Ryder: I told you this was going to happen, Stew! Lucian Black stands no chance against Scott Oasis in a big match environment and he’s going to choke again tonight like every other opportunity he’s had for the World Heavyweight Championship before! Scott grabs Lucian by the head and he drags him up to his feet MET WITH A SICK UPPERCUT BY LUCIAN AS HE NAILED HIM RIGHT IN THE JAW! SCOTT WAS CAUGHT OFF-GUARD AS LUCIAN WRAPS HIM AROUND BY THE WAIST! BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX! LUCIAN SLAMS SCOTT DOWN ON THE CANVAS AS BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!

Stew-O: This is the perfect opportunity for Lucian Black to catch a breath from the attack that Scott Oasis had on him as Scott starts stirring to try and get back to his feet! Lucian begins getting to his feet as both men stand WITH SCOTT LANDING A STIFF JAW-JACKING PUNCH ON LUCIAN! Lucian steps back BUT RETURNS A PUNCH DELIVERED STRAIGHT TO SCOTT’S MOUTH! SCOTT FIRES BACK! LUCIAN STRIKES IN RETURN! SCOTT! LUCIAN! SCOTT! LUCIAN! THE SLUGFEST IS GOING DOWN BETWEEN THESE TWO MONSTERS OF THE RING!

Matt Ryder: SCOTT OASIS LANDS A MASSIVE RIGHT HAND ON LUCIAN BLACK AS HE FALTERS BACK INTO THE ROPES! WAIT! NO! LUCIAN USES THE ROPES TO HIS ADVANTAGE AS HE BOUNCES BACK TO OASIS WITH THE JUMPING LARIAT! SCOTT WAS DROPPED TO THE FLOOR WITH THAT LARIAT AS LUCIAN GETS FIRED UP WITH THE RISE IN MOMENTUM! Scott rolls over to the turnbuckle corner to try and get away from Lucian as he uses the ropes to pick himself up BUT LUCIAN DARTS AHEAD COMING IN WITH A CORNER LARIAT WITH HIS NAME WRITTEN ON IT! TOO BAD HE DOESN’T GET IT! SCOTT THROWS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE AS HE LANDS OUTSIDE ON THE FLOOR LIKE HE WAS JUST THROWN IN A CAR ACCIDENT!

Stew-O: Lucian Black is rolling around on the floor in pain, but he knows he has to fight it as he starts to get to his feet while Scott Oasis is recovering for a moment! Scott turns to see Lucian trying to get to his feet as he walks over to the ropes to go outside BUT LUCIAN CATCHES HIS FOOT AND TRIPS HIM UP AS HE LANDS RIGHT ON HIS BACK ON THE RING APRON! YOU ALWAYS TRY TO AVOID GETTING DROPPED ON THAT BECAUSE THAT’S THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING RIGHT THERE! Lucian returns back to Scott HAMMERING AWAY WITH THE PUNCHES RIGHT TO HIS FACE BEFORE SETTING HIM ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! IS HE DOING WHAT I THINK HE’S DOING?

Matt Ryder: I don’t know what goes on in that mind of yours, Stew-Bro, but I do think he’s walking to the other side of the ring MEANING HE COULD BE GOING FOR THE POINT BLANK DROPKICK! DON’T DO IT! NOT ON SCOTTY! LUCIAN MAKES A BREAK FOR IT! POINT BLANK! RUNNING BOTTOM-ROPE HUNG DROPKICK RIGHT INTO THE JAW OF SCOTT AS HE LANDS RIGHT ON THE APRON! SCOTT FLIES BACK INTO THE RING AS LUCIAN RETURNS INTO THE RING AS HE GOES TO MAKE THE PIN ON HIM!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!

Stew-O: NO! THIS MATCH IS STILL GOING STRONG AS SCOTT OASIS IS ABLE TO GET HIS SHOULDER UP BEFORE THE THREE-COUNT! Lucian Black stands up and starts to wonder what he needs to do to put the World Heavyweight Champion away, though he needs to act fast before Scott starts to make his way back to his feet! Lucian looks to have an idea as he grabs him from behind and lifts him to his feet HOOKING HIM IN FOR THE DEAD END! HE LOOKS FOR ANOTHER CLASSIC MOVE FROM THE SAMOAN VANQUISHER’S PLAYBOOK! BACK ELBOW! ANOTHER BACK ELBOW! SCOTT ISN’T HAVING ANY OF THAT AS HE STARTS FIGHTING HIS WAY OUT OF THE GRASP OF LUCIAN!

Matt Ryder: I DON’T THINK SO, LUCIAN! SCOTT OASIS IS GOING TO TAKE YOU ALL AROUND THIS RING BEFORE YOU CAN GET SOMETHING LIKE THAT IN ON HIM! Scott runs to the ropes as he bounces off NAILING LUCIAN WITH THE BIG BOOT AS HE IS DRIVEN ONTO THE CANVAS! Scott has him where he wants him as he starts to make his way to the corner CALLING FOR A SPEAR OF HIS OWN! HE WANTS TO DRIVE LUCIAN THROUGH THE RING JUST LIKE HE DID TO HIM IN THE BEGINNING OF THIS MATCH! Lucian is trying to shake off that boot that just struck him in the mouth as he tries to stand on his feet AS SCOTT RUSHES IN FOR THE SPEAR! SUPERMAN PUNCH! LUCIAN JUST LAID OUT SCOTT WITH THAT BLOW! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS! NO! HE’S GOING FOR THE PIN! COME ON, SCOTT! KICK OUT OF IT!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Stew-O: CLOSE CALL THERE FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! HE WAS ABLE TO KICK OUT BEFORE THE THREE! Lucian Black grabs Scott Oasis by the hair as he needs to think of something to put this man away BUT WAIT! SCOTT HOOKS UNDER LUCIAN AS HE LOOKS FOR THE ROLL-UP PIN! DAMN IT! HE HAS A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS TOO AS HE LOOKS TO WIN THIS WAY THROUGH UNDERHANDED METHODS! NOT THIS WAY, SCOTT!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Stew-O: YES! LUCIAN BLACK KICKED OUT OF THE PIN, BUT SCOTT OASIS PULLED A FAST ONE ON THAT ROLL-UP! Scott pulls Lucian back up to his feet as he tosses him into the ropes! Lucian rebounds off the ropes RIGHT INTO A SWINGING SIDE SLAM BY OASIS! THE RING JUST RATTLED FROM THAT MASSIVE SLAM BY THE ICEMAN! SCOTT LOOKS TO PUT HIM AWAY AS HE LOOKS TO END IT HERE!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Matt Ryder: WHAT? AGAIN? LUCIAN BLACK KICKED OUT AGAIN? HOW COULD YOU LET THAT MAN KICK OUT, SCOTT? Scott Oasis is getting a bit frustrated that he hasn’t been able to put down The Mastodon, but he stands up CALLING FOR THE SEEK AND DESTROY! YES! HAHA! THAT’S GOING TO END IT ALL RIGHT HERE, STEW! ALL OF LUCIAN’S HOPES AND DREAMS WILL BE GONE WITH THIS MOVE! SCOTT HOISTS LUCIAN UP ON HIS SHOULDERS AS HE LOOKS TO END IT ALL HERE! SEEK AND DESTROY!

Stew-O: LOOK AT THIS! LUCIAN BLACK STARTS STRIKING HARD WITH THE PUNCHES RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF SCOTT OASIS! HE FLOATS DOWN AS HE ROLLS OASIS UP BEFORE HOISTING HIM IN THE AIR WITH ONE ARM! JESUS, LUCIAN! THAT’S AN ALMOST 300-POUND MAN THAT YOU’RE LIFTING ON YOUR SHOULDERS! YOU TALK ABOUT SCOTT BEING A CODE OF STRENGTH, BUT THIS POWER IS NOTHING TO SHRUG AT! SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! SCOTT HAS BEEN DRIVEN RIGHT INTO THE MAT AS LUCIAN HOLDS HIM THERE FOR THE PIN!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Matt Ryder: YEAH BABY! SCOTT OASIS KICKS OUT OF THE PIN! THAT’S RIGHT, LUCIAN! YOU CAN’T PUT THE ICEMAN DOWN! THIS ISN’T YOUR NIGHT! Lucian Black starts to look as if there’s nothing he can do to put him away, but starts backing into the turnbuckle corner AS HE ROARS WITH THE ENTIRE NEW MIAMI STADIUM ROARING WITH HIM AS HE LOOKS TO GET A SECOND SPEAR IN ON THE CHAMPION! DON’T LET HIM HIT IT, SCOTT! GET OUT OF THE WAY! SCOTT’S UP TO HIS FEET! WATCH OUT! HE’S COMING FOR YOU! OH MY! SCOTT THROWS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS! HE HAS HIM CAUGHT! SEEK AND DESTROY! SCOTT JUST DUMPED LUCIAN ON HIS HEAD WITH THE PSYCHO DRIVER AS HE HOOKS HIS LEG FOR THE PIN! YOU CAN CALL IT RIGHT HERE, STEW! HE’S DONE!

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

Stew-O: I CAN’T BELIEVE! I SERIOUSLY CAN’T! I’M IN UTTER SHOCK! LUCIAN BLACK HAS JUST KICKED OUT OF THE SEEK AND DESTROY! EVER SINCE SCOTT OASIS HAS BECOME WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO KICK OUT OF THAT MOVE! WHAT’S SCOTT GONNA DO NOW? HE’S JUST USED HIS TRUMP CARD AND HE STILL COULDN’T PUT LUCIAN BLACK AWAY!

Matt Ryder: I CALL SHENANIGANS HERE! THAT REFEREE MUST BE PAID OFF BY OUR GENERAL MANAGER AND HRDO! SOMEONE GET OUT HERE AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS INJUSTICE! THERE’S NO WAY THAT LUCIAN BLACK JUST KICKED OUT OF THAT! Scott Oasis jumps to his feet in anger as he marches his way to the turnbuckle corner LINING LUCIAN UP AS HE WANTS TO PUNT HIS SKULL RIGHT OFF HIS SHOULDERS! I SEE! HE MAY BE ABLE TO KICK OUT OF THE SEEK AND DESTROY, BUT THERE’S NO WAY HE’S SURVIVING THE RELAPSE!

Stew-O: Lucian Black is stirring as he crawls on the canvas before pushing his way back up to his hands and knees! Scott Oasis sees this as the perfect way to strike AS HE RUSHES IN FOR THE KILL! THE RELAPSE! SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! LUCIAN BLACK JUST NAILED SCOTT OASIS WITH A SECOND SPEAR! WE GOT TO HAVE A NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION AFTER THAT! LUCIAN LAYS ON SCOTT AS HE HOPES THAT THIS WILL BE WHAT PUTS HIM AWAY FOR GOOD!

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

Matt Ryder: HE DID IT! HE HAS DONE IT! SCOTT OASIS HAS JUST ESCAPED WHAT SEEMED LIKE CERTAIN DEFEAT FOR A SECOND TIME IN THIS MATCH! LUCIAN BLACK IS JUST STUNNED AND I DON’T UNDERSTAND! YOU’RE NOT GOING AGAINST JUST A MAN, LUCIAN, YOU’RE GOING AGAINST THE ICEMAN AND HE’S TAKING YOU TO YOUR LIMIT RIGHT NOW! WHAT YOU GONNA DO? HUH, LUCIAN? HUH?

Stew-O: Lucian Black looks around the ring as the Miami crowd is just as stunned as he is! He has to figure out how he can put away Scott Oasis right at this moment before he’s able to combat whatever he wants to throw his way! Lucian grabs Oasis by the hair and brings him up to his feet TOSSING SCOTT RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! Lucian sprints forward NAILING SCOTT WITH A CORNER LARIAT BEFORE THROWING HIM UP ON THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE! WHAT IS LUCIAN THINKING?

Matt Ryder: Lucian Black climbs to the middle rope as he grabs Scott Oasis on his shoulders! OH MY! NO! HE WANTS THAT SAMOAN DRIVER THAT HE USED AT KING OF ELITE TO FACE SCOTT OASIS IN THE FINALS! SCOTT OASIS IS STRIKING WITH ELBOWS IN THE SIDE OF LUCIAN’S HEAD! HE’S NOT GOING TO BE DONE DIRTY LIKE THIS WITHOUT A FIGHT! LUCIAN’S HANGING ONTO HIS OPPONENT FOR DEAR LIFE!

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

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Locked and Loaded plays in the background as Lucian Black jumps up with emotion running over his face as it hits him like a bus with New Miami Stadium becoming unglued with him unable to believe this is actually happening to him.)

Ring Announcer: This following match… IS A THIRTY MINUTE IRON MAN MATCH!!! The elitist with the most points by the end of the thirty minute mark will be declared victor of this match!

(The sound of an owl can be heard somewhere throughout New Miami Stadium before the lights in the Stadium go out)

(The lights come back on to several owls perched all around the Pain For Pride stage)

“How much must I repeat?”

“We only play for keeps”

(Some owls fly away to opposite sides of the stage as the lights dim while a figure begins to slowly rise from below the stage as the crowd begins to stir)

“No time-outs, no free throws”

“No refs, no penalties”

(The figure remains with its back turned towards the camera and an owl upon its shoulder as a spotlight shines upon it to reveal an intricately-designed icy blue and ghost white robe with “EPICENTER” embedded on the back with diamonds)

“No handouts, no pit stops”

“No cheat codes, no sleep”

(Jaywalker slowly turns around towards the ring upon the stage, revealing an owl-designed hood covering his face as a snow owl sits upon his shoulder while the other)

“But the drinks are on us”

“If you with it, then pull up a seat”

(The entire Stadium is suddenly illuminated with gold lighting as Jaywalker pulls down the hood while the snow owl flies away as “Play For Keeps” by BoB continues to play all throughout New Miami Stadium)

Announcer: Making his way towards the ring!….

(Fire rises from both sides of the Pain For Pride ramp with each step Jaywalker takes down it)

Announcer: Hailing from Scarborough, Canada!…. He weighed in tonight at 250 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE WINTER OWL”, “THE TRAILBLAZER”, “THE EPICENTER OF THE WORLD”…. THIS IS JAAAAYYYYYYYWWWWWWWWAAAAAALLLLKKKKEEEERRRR!!!….

Matt Ryder: He’s LITERALLY blazing a trail as he makes his way down the ramp, Stew!

Stew-O: The eccentricity of this man, Jaywalker, is second to none, Matt. He may not be the most moral individual – far from it, but he’s proven time and time again since he first stepped into an EAW ring in this company’s infancy, that he is one of, if not THE greatest performer of all time. I may not condone his actions most of the time, but you can’t deny the sheer talent of this man.

(The lights go out in the arena, as it quiets down)

“And who are you, the proud lord said, that I must bow so low…”

(When suddenly a spotlight shines down on the stage, an iron throne arises from it.)

“Only a cat from a different coat, that’s all the truth I know.”

(Then a red banner with a golden lion on it falls from the titantron.)

“In a coat of gold, or a coat of red, a lion still has claws.”

(A loud lion roaring in the background is heard, as the focus of the camera stays on the banner and throne.)

“And mine are long, and sharp my Lord, as long and sharp as yours.”

(Mist fills the stage area, as two soldiers enter onto the stage – both with lion symbols upon their chests, and helmets covering their face, and swords at the ready.)

“And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere.”

(The two soldiers turn to one another, raising their swords up in a battle stance.)

“Yes, now the rains weep o’er hall, and not a soul to hear.”

(The two soldiers go to collide swords with one another, but the lights shut instantly off, as all you hear is metal clashing with metal.)

Matt Ryder: This is really bone chilling, unnerving really…

(… the clashing metal comes to an end, and it sounds as if one of the soldiers have fallen. The lights come back on, and you see a soldier collapsed, another soldier with a bloody sword, and a man sitting in the iron throne with a German flag draped over his head.)

Stew-O: IS THAT HIM?! IS IT FINALLY THE ARRIVAL?!

Matt Ryder: IT HAS TO BE! WHO ELSE WOULD IT BE?!

(The man picks up his head, revealing himself to be “The One True King” Lannister, as “Shepherd of Fire” by Avenged Sevenfold blasts throughout the arena, the fans jolt up on their feet, roaring in cheers for him, as he stands up and makes his way down to the ring.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, from Dortmund, Germany, weighing in at 252 POOOOOOOOOOOOOOUNDSSSS!!!!… HE IS “THE ANGEL OF DEBT”, “THE STAR OF THE MOURNING”, “KING OF ELITE”, THIS IS LANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIISTEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

Matt Ryder: WHAT A HUGE OVATION FOR THIS MAN! HE DESERVES! OUR KING HAS FINALLY COME HOME! MONTHS AFTER MONTHS OF WAITING, WE’RE GETTING OUR ONE TRUE KING FINALLY BACK WHERE HE BELONGS!

Stew-O: It’s been a bumpy ride of these last few months of Dynasty… I was unsure of what Killswitch’s intentions are to begin with, but once he revealed his one purpose in representing this monster of a man – I knew Jaywalker was in trouble. This is really going to be a nasty iron man match, I think Jaywalker wants to rip the head off Lannister’s shoulder, and put it up on a mantle for everyone to see.

(Lannister gets into the ring, raising his German flag into the air, as he hands it to the referee.)

Matt Ryder: IF YOU’RE NOT HYPED, YOU SHOULD BE! WE’RE ABOUT TO GET ONE HELL OF AN OPENER BETWEEN THESE TWO GLADIATORS!

(Jaywalker continues to watch Lannister’s movements, as “Shepherd Fire” fades out, the referee proceeds to check on the two, as they stare each other down from separate corners, and once finished, he calls for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Matt Ryder: I can’t believe the history we’re making here tonight… Jaywalker stands across the ring from the “One True King” Lannister! They both come nose-to-nose, AND HERE WE GO WITH THE DEADLY UPPERCUTS FROM LANNISTER ALREADY! ONE UPPERCUT AFTER ANOTHER!!! SMASHING OFF THE JAW OF JAYWALKER, BUT JAYWALKER FIRES BACK WITH AN UPPERCUT OF HIS OWN!!! Lannister getting a taste of his own medicine, BUT CONNECTS WITH A LEAPING KNEE STRIKE TO JAYWALKER’S STERNUM!!! I think we’re going to see a whole lot of resiliency and strength from these two outstanding wrestlers! Jaywalker steps backwards, and Lannister pulls him in by the wrist, whipping him to the ropes…

Stew-O: Jaywalker comes rebounding back… AND GOES FLIPPING OVER A RUNNING KNEE SMASH!!! LANNISTER DRIVES A SHARP KNEE RIGHT INTO HIS STOMACH! Jaywalker refuses to stay grounded for long, as he scurries back to his feet… Lannister immediately whips Jaywalker into the corner! HE FOLLOWS IN A CHARGE OF PURSUIT AFTER HIM!!!… JAYWALKER SIDESTEPS OUT OF THE CORNER! LANNISTER GOES BELLY FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE, BUT JAYWALKER PROMPTLY PULLS HIM IN!!! AND RELEASES LANNISTER FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX!!! Lannister is literally flown across the ring! Jaywalker showcasing an astounding amount of strength right there!

Matt Ryder: I don’t think Lannister has ever come across a foe that equals in strength before! Jaywalker takes his time walking over to Lannister, and Lannister pulls himself back to his feet! JAYWALKER HOISTS LANNISTER ONTO HIS SHOULDERS IN A REVERSE FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION… TORTURE RACK!!! HE’S GOT HIM UP IN THE TORTURE RACK WHERE LANNISTER HAS NOWHERE TO GO!!! Jaywalker walking slowly around the ring, punishing Lannister in such a cruel way! Lannister is attempting his very best to escape, BUT JAYWALKER SHIFTS LANNISTER POSITION ON HIS SHOULDERS…

Stew-O: OH MY GOD!!! JAYWALKER DROPS LANNISTER ON HIS HEAD FOR THE PSYCHO DRIVER I!!! LANNISTER IS DRIVEN HEAD FIRST INTO THE CANVAS!!! JAYWALKER COULD HAVE BROKEN HIS NECK RIGHT THERE!!! THAT’S INSANE! AND JAYWALKER PULLS BACK ON HIS LEFT LEG FOR THE FIRST PIN ATTEMPT IN THIS IRON MAN MATCH!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!….

Matt Ryder: THAT’S NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP LANNISTER DOWN!! HE KICKS OUT!!! Jaywalker is seemingly not impressed with this, and pulls Lannister back onto his feet with him… and Jaywalker tries to hook him in again! BUT AT THE LAST SECOND, LANNISTER MANAGES TO GET A FIRM GRIP AROUND JAYWALKER’S WAIST! BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX CONNECTS OUT OF COMPLETELY NOWHERE!!! JAYWALKER IS FLIPPED OVERHEAD, AND LANDS VIOLENTLY DOWN ON HIS UPPER BACK!!! And I don’t think Lannister is through here… oh no! He is not! Lannister pushes himself back up, and grabs Jaywalker instantly by the legs! WE ALL KNOW WHAT’S COMING NEXT!!!…

Stew-O: THE SWING!!! LANNISTER STARTS TO TWIRL JAYWALKER AROUND IN A FULL CIRCLE FOR THE SWING!!! ONE TIME AROUND, TWO TIMES AROUND, THREE TIMES AROUND! I JUST CAN’T KEEP UP! AND LANNISTER SUDDENLY SEEMS TO SHIFT HIS POSITION CLOSER TO THE TURNBUCKLE… OH WOW! LANNISTER STRATEGICALLY POSITIONS HIMSELF TO WHERE JAYWALKER’S SKULL IS BASHED RIGHT OFF THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE EVERY TIME!! OUCH!!!

Matt Ryder: Lannister finishes it off by tossing Jaywalker in the center of the ring, and the clock keeps on ticking! But now, Lannister is calling for Jaywalker to stand up! Lannister shouting, SCREAMING! Jaywalker doing his best to get back to a vertical base, but he’s easily dizzy as ever right now! But he manages to get up, on spaghetti legs here… AND LANNISTER LIFTS JAYWALKER UP INTO THE FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION!! HE’S GOT HIM HOISTED UP!!! BUT JAYWALKER DRIVES ELBOW AFTER ELBOW INTO HIS HEAD!!! FIRING OFF WITH RAPID ELBOWS!!!

Stew-O: BUT LANNISTER ISN’T EVEN PHASED!!! HE STANDS TALL WITH JAYWALKER STILL UP! THE RAINS OF CASTAMERE!!! HE GOT HIM WITH THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!!! WOW!!!! THE FORTITUDE OF THIS THIS MAN IS INHUMAN!

Matt Ryder: ARE YOU IMPRESSED WITH OUR ONE TRUE KING NOW, STEW??? THERE’S NO WAY JAYWALKER KICKS OUT AFTER THAT! AND LANNISTER QUICKLY JUMPS FOR THE COVER!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…..

Stew-O: SURE, BUT JAYWALKER KICKS OUT OF YOUR “ONE TRUE KING’S” FIRST ATTEMPT TO GET A PIN IN THIS IRON MAN MATCH!!! Lannister isn’t too pleased, but more or so… enraged! He BEATS his fists into the vulnerable head of Jaywalker, and the referee already trying to pry Lannister off Jaywalker! Lannister luckily obliges, but pulls Jaywalker back up! STIFF KNEE TO THE GUT! AND LANNISTER… LANNISTER BENCH PRESSES JAYWALKER!!! HE LIFTS HIM UP!!! MY LORD!!! LANNISTER!!! HE DROPS JAYWALKER, AND JAYWALKER PLUMMETS TO THE MAT AS LANNISTER CONNECTS WITH A BEAUTIFUL MICHINOKU DRIVER!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN LANNISTER PERFORM THAT BEFORE!

Matt Ryder: LANNISTER IS ALWAYS KNOWN TO ADAPT, IMPROVISE, AND INNOVATE FRESH AND NEW THINGS, STEW! Lannister craves that first ever Pain for Pride victory! And what a victory it would be to beat the legendary, Jaywalker! I think Lannister is going through a thought process, conjuring up vicious ideas on how to get the first win on the board… and HE DRAGS JAYWALKER BACK TO BOTH FEET IN A FULL NELSON POSITION… BLOOD MONEY!!! THE BLOOD MONEY!!! LANNISTER HAS JAYWALKER LOCKED IN THE EVER SO DANGEROUS FULL NELSON LOCK!!! JAYWALKER HAS ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE TO GO AS HE STRUGGLES IN THIS HOLD!!! THE REFEREE STAYS CLOSE BY, CHECKING ON JAYWALKER TIME TO TIME…

Stew-O: JAYWALKER IS DOING HIS BEST TO ESCAPE, BUT TO NO PREVAIL! LANNISTER JUST TIGHTENS THE HOLD EVEN MORE! RAGGING JAYWALKER ALL AROUND THE PLACE! LANNISTER DOES NOT CARE! AND JAYWALKER… I THINK HE MIGHT BE FADING! NO, NO HE’S NOT! JAYWALKER IS FIGHTING THROUGH THIS! HE’S DOING WHAT HE CAN WITHIN HIS POWER, TO POWER OUT… BUT LANNISTER IS NOT BUDGING! HE’S NOT BUDGING AT ALL! LANNISTER REFUSES— WHAT??? JAYWALKER BREAKS OUT!!! JAYWALKER BREAKS OUT OF THE BLOOD MONEY FULL NELSON HOLD ON A DIME! SPINS AROUND— LANNISTER POPS HIM INTO THE AIR!!! FEUER FREIIIIIIII!!!! POP UP EUROPEAN UPPERCUT… CONNECTS! HE GOT HIM! HE GOT HIM!!! LANNISTER COULD VERY WELL GET THE FIRST FALL IN THIS MATCH!!! HE HOOKS THE LEG OF JAYWALKER!!!

ONEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Ring Announcer: The winner of the first fall via pinfall, Lannister!

(Lannister: 1 / Jaywalker: 0)

(Timer: 11:28…)

Matt Ryder: HA! I KNEW THAT WOULD HAPPEN! With only a little bit over ten minutes remaining in this match, my boy Lannister has gotten the first fall! Lannister pulls Jaywalker back up once again, he’s not going to give him any breathing room! Jaywalker is dazed, he’s on wobbly legs… AND LANNISTER CHARGES AT HIM!!! ANOTHER FEUER FREI??? JAYWALKER JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY!!! HE DODGES IT!!! JAYWALKER SPINS ON A DIME— THE TRANSCENSION!!!! THE TRANSCENSION NORTHERN LARIAT NEARLY BEHEADS THE ONE TRUE KING FROM BEHIND!!! WHERE THE HELL DID THAT COME FROM??? LANNISTER DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HIT HIM!!! JAYWALKER TURNS LANNISTER ONTO HIS BACK, AND COVERS!!!!

ONEEEEEEEEE!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Ring Announcer: The winner of the second fall via pinfall, Jaywalker!

(Lannister: 1 / Jaywalker: 1)

(Timer: 10:07…)

Stew-O: Nearly a minute after, Jaywalker picks up his first point, and the second fall of this match! He’s tied things up within a blink of an eye! Jaywalker pushes himself to a knee, gasping his neck while he looks down at Lannister… and Jaywalker rises back to his feet! AND STOMPS ON LANNISTER’S LEFT ARM! AND THEN HIS ELBOW AFTER THAT! THEN PROCEEDS TO STOMP ON HIS KNEECAP! THEN HIS ANKLE!!! AND FORCEFULLY STOMPS ON THE OTHER LEG AND ANKLE!!! AND THEN HIS LEFT WRIST!!! HE’S STOMPING ALL OVER LANNISTER!!! LANNISTER IS FEELING THE WRATH OF JAYWALKING! AND JAYWALKER COMES FULL CIRCLE… A VICIOUS KNEE DROP CONNECTS TO THE HEAD!!!

Matt Ryder: Jaywalker is very much alike Lannister… he enjoys every second of punishment that he deals out! Jaywalker drags Lannister back to his feet, AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER!!! JAYWALKER CHASES AFTER HIM— CORNER CLOTHESLINE RIGHT AFTER LANNISTER HITS SPINE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!! Jaywalker distances himself again, backing away into the opposite corner, SOARING OUT AGAIN!!! AND THIS TIME DRIVES HIS RIGHT ARM INTO LANNISTER’S THROAT WITH A RUNNING UPPERCUT TO THE CORNERED LION!!! Lannister woozily steps out of the corner… Jaywalker runs off the ropes!

Stew-O: AND LANNISTER IS HIT BY A FORCE OF A TRAIN WITH AN INCAPACITATING BIG BOOT!!! JAYWALKER PUTTING SO MUCH FORCE INTO THAT LANNISTER WENT FLIPPING! But do you expect mercy to be shown from Jaywalker? NOPE! Jaywalker leans down to lift Lannister up again! BUT LANNISTER PULLS JAYWALKER DOWN… INSIDE CRADLE PIN!!! WHAT??? WAS LANNISTER PLAYING POSSUM?

ONEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOO!!!!…

Matt Ryder: JAYWALKER SHIFTS IT INTO HIS OWN PIN!!!

ONEEEE!!!… TWOOOOOO!!!!….

Stew-O: AND LANNISTER DOES THE SAME!

ONEEEEEEEE!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…

Matt Ryder: NOPE, JAYWALKER ONCE AGAINST SHIFTS IT INTO HIS OWN PIN!

ONEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…

Stew-O: LANNISTER COMPLETELY ROLLS OUT OF IT THIS TIME!!! He leans against the ropes, resting… Jaywalker pounces back to his feet! He wants Lannister’s head! AND LANNISTER TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THIS! BURSTING OUT IN A SPRINT AGAINST JAYWALKER!!! BUT JAYWALKER TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A JAPANESE ARM DRAG! BUT LANNISTER DOESN’T STAY DOWN FOR LONG! THE FRENZIED LANNISTER BACK TO HIS FEET, CHARGES AT JAYWALKER AGAIN! AND THIS TIME LANNISTER TAKES JAYWALKER DOWN WITH A DROPKICK!!! AND JAYWALKER FINDS HIMSELF HURRYING TO HIS FEET! Jaywalker comes face-to-face with Lannister, BUT TAKES A FEROCIOUS FOREARM TO THE HEAD!

Matt Ryder: BUT JAYWALKER RETALIATES WITH A CHEST REDDENING KNIFE EDGE CHOP!!! Lannister felt the sting of that one for sure— LANNISTER SWINGS FOR ANOTHER STIFF FOREARM TO THE TRAILBLAZER! AND ANOTHER ONE! ANOTHER ONE! SO MANY FOREARMS!!!!… BUT JAYWALKER BLOCKS AN INCOMING FOREARM! AND THERE’S A PIERCING KNEE TO THE ABDOMEN! Jaywalker speedily dashes off the ropes!!! AND MEETS LANNISTER WITH A SCISSORS KICK!!! NO!!! LANNISTER MOVES AWAY!!! AND LANNISTER COMES UP FROM BEHIND JAYWALKER… GERMAN SUPLEX?? JAYWALKER SHIFTS BEHIND LANNISTER!!! I THINK JAYWALKER WANTS ONE OF HIS OWN— NO!!! NOW LANNISTER SHIFTS BACK TO HIS ORIGINAL POSITION!

Stew-O: This time around, Jaywalker sends back rapid elbows! BUT LANNISTER GOES TO LIFT HIM UP!!! JAYWALKER DOES NOT MOVE! Jaywalker throws some more elbows back, AND LANNISTER HEADBUTTS THE BACK OF JAYWALKER’S HEAD REPEATEDLY!!! But at the same time he’s doing damage to his own self! I don’t think he cares too much, I’d like to believe he has bones made of literal steel! He’s appearing to be the man of steel as we speak! Jaywalker is in a stunned state, Lannister… GOES FOR ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!!! HUH??? JAYWALKER ONCE AGAIN CLINGS ONTO LANNISTER! HIS FEET NOT LEAVING THE MAT!!! JAYWALKER TWISTS AROUND, SHIFTING HIMSELF BEHIND LANNISTER… BRIDGING DRAGON SUPLEX!!! JAYWALKER GOING FOR ANOTHER POINT!!

ONEEEEEEEEE!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…..

Matt Ryder: LANNISTER POWERS OUT OF IT!!! LANNISTER SAVES HIMSELF FROM HAVING THE POINT DISADVANTAGE HERE! Jaywalker shaking his head, he’s displeased with how much Lannister is resisting, but we all know the type of warrior Lannister is… Jaywalker stands back up, pulling Lannister up along with him— AND DECIDES TO SUDDENLY LIFT HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!!! OH MY… HE’S SETTING UP THAT DEADLY MUSCLE BUSTER!!! THE MUSCLE BUSTER!!! LANNISTER HAS NO TIME TO STRUGGLE, BECAUSE JAYWALKER DROPS HIM FIERCELY DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS FOR A MUSCLE BUSTER! Jaywalker sits up in a seated position, looking back at Lannister… and the look in his eyes is unbelievable! Lannister is ALREADY recovering, trying to pull himself together!

Stew-O: It’s because, Lannister is no human… he’s a MONSTER, even a BEAST really! OH BOY… JAYWALKER SUDDENLY SEEMS TO HAVE SNAPPED! HE’S ANGRY LANNISTER DOES NOT GO DOWN AS EASILY AS SOME OTHER FOES OF HIS WOULD! JAYWALKER SMASHES HIS FIST INTO THE MAT, RISING BACK UP TO HIS FEET… AND RAGS LANNISTER TO HIS FEET BY HIS HEAD!!! DOUBLE A SPINEBUSTER!!! DOUBLE A SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS! LANNISTER IS DRILLED SPINE FIRST INTO THE MAT! AND JAYWALKER ISN’T THROUGH! JAYWALKER LIFTS LANNISTER BACK TO HIS FEET ONCE AGAIN… HE’S SNAPPED! Lannister woozily stutters around the ring dazed… AND MUH GAWD!!!! JAYWALKER LEAPS UP!!! JUMPING HOOK KICK!!! A STRONG RIGHT RIGHT FOOT PIERCES THE BACK OF LANNISTER’S SKULL!!!

Matt Ryder: … BUT LANNISTER DOESN’T FALL??? LANNISTER IS STUNNED! JAYWALKER LOOKS BACK WITH A COLD STARE… ANOTHER LEAP!!! AND ANOTHER JUMPING HOOK KICK TO THE BACK OF HIS SKULL! LANNISTER IS THRUSTED FORWARD!!! DOWN ONTO A KNEE THIS TIME!!! THIS INHUMAN BEING REFUSES TO GO DOWN! HE WILL NOT GO DOWN FOR JAYWALKER!!! AND JAYWALKER IS IRATE! JAYWALKER TAKES OF A BURST OF RAGE OFF THE ROPES!!!… POSSIBLE HEAD SCISSORS KICK AGAIN? WHAT?!?!?! LANNISTER BURSTS UP OUT OF NOWHERE!!! CHARGING FEUER FREI!!! FEUER FREI CONNECTS!!! LANNISTER OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A SECOND WIND!!! THIS GODLY MAN MUSTERS UP ENOUGH ENERGY TO CONNECT WITH THAT EUROPEAN UPPERCUT… BUT JAYWALKER IS ONLY FORCED INTO THE ROPES!

(Timer: 5:37…)

Stew-O: Lannister gazes up at the timer set up on the titantron… and he walks toward Jaywalker, gripping him by the arm, and throwing him to the ropes! Jaywalker sprints back toward him— ANOTHER FEUER FREI EUROPEAN UPPERCUT CONNECTS!!! BUT MUCH LIKE LANNISTER, JAYWALKER IS TAKEN DOWN TO A KNEE! MUCH LIKE HE’S KNEELING TO WHAT RYDER KEEPS CALLING “THE ONE TRUE KING”… Lannister wants to nail the final coffin! He pulls him between his legs! AND HE CRACKS HIS NECK!!!… HERE WE GO!!! LANNISTER LIFTS JAYWALKER’S PRETTY MUCH LIFELESS BODY!!! LIFTING THAT DEAD WEIGHT…. THE BROKEN CROWN!!!! THE BROKEN CROWN!!!! HE GOT IT!!! THE BROKEN CROWN CONNECTS!!! LANNISTER GETS HIM WITH SUCH AN EMPATHETIC BORDER TOSS!!! AND HE IMMEDIATELY FALLS OVER JAYWALKER FOR THE PIN!!! WILL HE BE GOING TWO-AND-ONE HERE??? IS THIS ENOUGH???

ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Matt Ryder: JAYWALKER THROWS THE SHOULDER UP!!! JAYWALKER BREAKS UP THE PIN!!! HOW??? HOW DOES THIS MAN CONTINUE TO FIGHT AGAINST THE ANGEL OF DEBT??? WHERE IS THIS ENERGY COMING FROM? THESE TWO MEN ARE AT IT NONSTOP, AND THERE’S NO GIVING UP IN THEM!!! THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE TO LITERALLY KILL ONE ANOTHER TO KEEP EACH OTHER DOWN!

(Lannister rests his head down on the mat, looking back up to the timer…)

(Timer: 4:19…)

Stew-O: Lannister takes another good look up at the clock, the time is going down… and this could very well go down as a draw at the pace they’re going in! Lannister crawls toward the ropes, pulling himself back up, while Jaywalker is barely moving an inch, and Lannister looks backwards at Jaywalker… and walks closer toward him, cracking his neck again! Lannister slowly lifts Jaywalker’s lifeless self back up! Using all the strength of ten men to pick him up— JAYWALKER WITH AN UNDER HANDED UPPERCUT TO THE THROAT OF LANNISTER!!! LANNISTER IS SENT BACK ASTONISHED!!! Jaywalker woozily stands on two feet, shaking the cobwebs… AND LANNISTER OUT OF ANGER COMES FIRING BACK WITH A CLOTHESLINE!!! BUT JAYWALKER DUCKS UNDER IT!! AND JAYWALKER ROLLS HIS ELBOW BACK TO STAB HIS ELBOW OFF LANNISTER’S HEAD!

Matt Ryder: Lannister groggily steps forward, his back turned against Jaywalker— AND JAYWALKER IS SETTING LANNISTER UP FOR THE 2ND SACRIFICE!!! JAYWALKER RAISES LANNISTER P BY THE GRIP UNDER LANNISTER ARMS… AND SPRINTS FORWARD!!! LANNISTER LEAPS OUT OF JAYWALKER’S GRIP AT THE LAST SECOND!!! AND OH!!!! LANNISTER INSTANTLY HOOKS JAYWALKER’S ARMS ABOVE HIS HEAD!!! BLOOD MONEY!!! LANNISTER LOOKING FOR THE BLOOD MONEY ONCE AGAIN IN THIS MATCH!!! NOPE, JAYWALKER ISN’T HAVING IT!!! JAYWALKER BREAKS OUT OF THE HOLD BEFORE LANNISTER COULD LOCK IT IN!!!

(Timer: 3:21…)

Stew-O: Time is of the essence right about now… these two are fighting till the last second! Jaywalker spins and swings A HUGE right fist to Lannister’s head! AND ANOTHER HUGE RIGHT HOOK! AND A LEFT HOOK! Lannister is teetering! He’s not looking too good right now, and Jaywalker desperately whips Lannister into the ropes! Lannister looking like he could trip mid-way any step he takes— BUT SUDDENLY REGAINS HIS BALANCE!!! HE GOES FOR A TACKLE TAKE DOWN ATTEMPT!!! BUT JAYWALKER LEAPS OVER HIS HEAD!!! DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE BACK OF LANNISTER’S SKULL! SENDING HIM NOSE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS!!! JAYWALKER FLIPS HIM OVER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!!

ONEEEEEEEEE!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!… THRRRRRRR—

Matt Ryder: LANNISTER JUST BARELY THROWS THE SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST SPLIT SECOND!!! THIS IS INSANITY! WHAT’S IT GOING TO TAKE? THIS MATCH MIGHT AS WELL END AS A DRAW!

(Timer: 2:45…)

Stew-O: Jaywalker with sweat dripping down his face, eyes frantically staring at the clock… pulls himself back to his feet, picking Lannister up slowly by his head— LANNISTER THROWS AN ELBOW TO JAYWALKER’S STOMACH! HE LIVES! Jaywalker jumps backwards, AND ANOTHER ELBOW IS DRIVEN IN JAY’S CHEST THIS TIME!!! IT’S NOW OR NEVER, LANNISTER! HE THROWS A RIGHT HOOK! AND A LEFT HOOK! HE’S FIRING BACK AT JAYWALKER!

Matt Ryder: AND RETURNS TO A BRUTAL PIERCING KNEE TO LANNISTER’S STOMACH! TAKING HIM DOWN TO A KNEE! KNOCKING THE WIND RIGHT OUT OF HIM!!!… And Jaywalker is distancing himself, pacing back and forth, measuring Lannister up! HE SPRINTS! CATACLYSMIA!!! TIGER UPPERCUT KNEE LIFT— LANNISTER BURSTS UP IN A SPRINT AT JAYWALKER MID-WAY!!! FEUER FREI!!!! THE FEUER FREI CONNECTS!!! WAIT, NO! JAYWALKER GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD, THROWING HIM BELLY FIRST INTO THE ROPES! JAYWALKER LOOKS UP TO THE CLOCK AGAIN, EYEING THE TIME…

(Timer: 1:13…)

Stew-O: Lannister stumbles backwards… RIGHT INTO ANOTHER TRANSCENSION! NORTHERN LARIAT TO THE BACK OF LANNISTER’S HEAD!!! AND THIS COULD BE ALL SHE WROTE!!! BUT LANNISTER ROLLS OUT ONTO THE APRON LIKE A GENIUS! JAYWALKER ON HIS KNEES FORCEFULLY DRAGS LANNISTER BACK UNDERNEATH THE ROPES, INTO THE RING… AND HE PINS HIM SHOULDERS TO THE MAT! THIS MAY BE IT!!!…

ONEEEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOOO!!!!…. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Ring Announcer: The winner of the third fall via pinfall, Jaywalker!

(Lannister: 1 / Jaywalker: 2)

(Timer: 0:35…)

Matt Ryder: OH NO!!! IT’S GOING TO TAKE A MIRACLE NOW FOR LANNISTER TO TIE THIS UP!!! AND EVEN GET A THIRD FALL!!!!… Jaywalker rises to his feet, with a devilish smile on his face! He’s pleased, as he watches the time count down… Lannister is motionless in the ring! He’s not moving a single inch! No! Come on, Lannister!

(Timer: 0:15…)

Stew-O: All Jaywalker has to do now is run out the clock— LANNISTER!!! LANNISTER PULLS JAYWALKER DOWN!!! ROLL UP!!! WHAT?!?! HOW!?!?! WITH ELEVEN SECONDS LEFT ON THE CLOCK!!!!

ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!…. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Matt Ryder: JAYWALKER KICKS OUT! HE KICKS OUT!!!! NO, WHY???!!!! RIGHT AT THE LAST SECOND!!! THERE’S NO TIME… JAYWALKER JUMPS TO HIS FEET, AND REPEATEDLY STOMPS ON THE HEAD OF THE DOWNED LANNISTER! LANNISTER TRIED AT ONE LAST DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO TAKE JAYWALKER DOWN WITH HIM, BUT TO NO PREVAIL!

(Timer: 5… 4… 3… 2.. 1…)

Stew-O: JAYWALKER’S DONE IT! JAYWALKER HAS DETHRONED THE KING OF ELITE AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Play For Keeps” by B.o.B immediately plays after the bell rings, the referee wedging himself between Jaywalker and Lannister…)

Ring Announcer: The winner of this iron man match at a score of two to one!!!… JAYYYYYYYYYYYYYWAAAAAAAAAAALKERRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: NOW THIS IS THE JAYWALKER WE ALL GREW UP WITH! A VERY DOMINANT JAYWALKER! THIS SHOULD’VE BEEN THE JAYWALKER WE SAW IN EVERY OTHER MATCH HE’S COMPETED IN… AGAINST JACOB SENN, AGAINST TYLER PARKER, THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER, XAVIER WILLIAMS… AND THAT PESKY CLOWN KILLSWITCH WILL BE SPEECHLESS NOW! HE’S BEEN ROBBED VICTORY AFTER VICTORY, AND EVERYTHING HAS FINALLY WENT HIS WAY TONIGHT!

Matt Ryder: … pfft, whatever, I guess I can’t deny that he fought hard for this victory. I still wish that Lannister would have won… but fair is fair, Jaywalker has impressed the EAW crowd once again. This was a classic match that nobody will ever forget! Back and forth they went, and I was really expecting Lannister to take Jaywalker down with him in the end! Imagine how angry these people would of been if this ended as a draw! Lannister would of loved nothing more than to deliver that…

Stew-O: But I’m afraid he didn’t! Lannister fought tooth and nail, but in the end, Jaywalker stands on top! What an astounding way to start off day two of Pain For Pride 9! I wouldn’t have it any other way, these two put on a clinic! It looks like the “Angel of Debt” will have to leave this debt unpaid for now…

(Jaywalker walks to the corner, to a mixed reaction from the crowd – and climbs to the second rope, spreading his arms apart, taunting to the Miami crowd who continues to react down the middle, as the camera fades elsewhere.)

(The camera transitions somewhere backstage as Carson Ramsay is shown pacing back and forth with his Pure Championship hanging off his shoulder, murmuring to himself)

???: You, young man, look like you’ve got a lot on your mind.

(Albert Hitchman steps into camera-view with a smug look on his face as Carson Ramsay pays him no mind)

Albert: Pacing back and forth, talking to yourself, and you look like you haven’t even slept in days. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you’re feeling a certain pressure. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you look like a man that’s bound to lose the biggest match of his career.

(Carson stops pacing as he turns his focus towards Albert)

Carson: What’d you just say?

(Albert puts up his hands and chuckles)

Albert: My apologies, I can’t help calling but calling them like I see them. I don’t mean any harm, it’s just with everything so chaotic and it being the biggest show of the year, I couldn’t help but notice you over here. You’re defending that Title against StarrStan, aren’t you? Well… With all due respect, you don’t look like a man that even belongs in the same league as someone like him.

(Carson’s unamused look slowly turns to a slight smile)

Carson: Is that right? You call them like you see them, huh?

Albert: That’s right.

Carson: That’s funny, cause just now, before my very eyes, I see a very fat, very balding, very stupid guy that looks like he’s been waiting his whole life for an asskicking to put him in his place. Don’t worry about me. You see this?

(Carson pats the Pure Championship on his shoulder)

Carson: I didn’t get this by trying to be something I’m not, guy. Cause you know what? I’m NOT someone in Starr’s league. I’m in one of my own. I didn’t have to wrestle in the Olympics, I don’t need to look pretty for the cameras, and I don’t need a stick up my ass to call myself the Pure Champion. All I need is to be the Pure Champion. I’m not gonna compromise that for the sake of some asshole like you, like any of the people out there that have a problem with me, or for StarrStan himself. Got it? You catch all that?

(Albert laughs)

Albert: You’re a funny guy.

Carson: Yeah, just wait till I get to the punchline.

Albert: Now, now, now – no need to threaten anyone. I come peacefully. You just, well, remind me so much of another… Degenerate. I wasn’t sure, but getting a good look at you now, the resemblance is striking. My client and I were curious, and well…

(Scott Diamond steps up behind Carson as Carson quickly turns around, both men locking eyes)

Albert: Now we know. I can see how you prepare yourself for a big match, but would you like to know how my client prefers to prepare HIMSELF? By making an example out of someone. Someone who’s almost identical to Diamond Cage. Like an appetizer before the meal.

(Carson and Scott continue to stare down, getting nose to nose)

Carson: Go for it.

(Albert laughs)

Albert: You really are a funny guy. Relax, we don’t mean any harm. We’ve got bigger fish to fry, as they say. I just thought we’d come by and say hi since we were in the neighborhood. Maybe get a good look at that Title of your’s. It is pretty, isn’t it?

(Albert tries to touch the Title, only for Carson to swat his hand away)

Albert: Best of luck in your match tonight. If it’s any consolation, I sure hope you win. Maybe we’ll pay you and that pretty Title a visit when we’re through with Diamond Cage. You have a good day.

(Albert walks off as Scott and Carson continue to stare down for several moments)

(Scott’s scowl slowly turns into a smirk before he takes his leave as well while Carson looks on, and going back to pacing after several more seconds)

(The camera pans to the ring where the ring announcer is standing.)

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen…the following contest is the 24/7 CONTRACT BATTLE ROYAL!

(The crowd stands and cheers in anticipation of the match, the announcer cut off for a moment and waits for the applause to die down.)

Ring Announcer: A brief reminder of the rules of this battle royal: There are no time limits. There are no pinfalls, submissions, on disqualifications. The only way that a participant can be eliminated is that they are thrown over the top rope with both feet touching the floor. The Elitist or Vixen that stands victorious will be presented with the 24/7 Contract and with it the right to challenge for ANY EAW Championship at ANY time for a calendar year!

(The camera cheers as a quick shot of the 24/7 Contract, covered in a beautiful crystal veneer attached to a trophy mount of wood and bronze, and Corporate HRDO sitting at ringside dutifully watching.)

Ring Announcer: It is now time to bring the participants to the ring!

(“Victorious” by Panic! At the Disco plays as pyro goes off at the stage and entrance ramp, the wrestlers making their way down to the ring to cheers and occasional boos, depending on the person.)

The “Killer of Saints” ……. KENNY DRAKE!
The “One Man Genocide” …. DARIO SHAW!

(Liam makes his way slowly up the ramp as the ring begins to fill, various Elitists jawing back and forth with one another before a white mist surrounds the ring. Once it disperses, Maero is found perched atop one of the turnbuckles, Elise standing at ringside dressed in military fatigues and holding a sabre. Several of the Elitists look noticeably wary of him while Autumn Raven leans in the corner opposite of him with a small smile tugging at her lips.)

MAERO!

(Before the Ring announcer exits the ring, HRDO walks up to the ring and requests the microphone from the Ring Announcer, who gives it to him before exiting the ring.)

HRDO: Pain for Pride is always a time for surprises, isn’t it? I have one for all of you standing in the ring at this very moment. You see, there has been something that I neglected to mention to any of you. There is still one more participant left to enter the contest.

(The crowd erupts in applause as HRDO points to the entrance way.)

HRDO: He should be arriving shortly. Enjoy…and may the odds forever be in your favor.

(HRDO jumps down as Liam and Terry Chambers in particular jaw at him, the other Elitists and Vixens look towards the entrance stage as the crowd murmurs. Then, “I Got the Keys” by DJ Khaled ft. Future and Jay-Z plays as Hurricane Hawk makes his way onto the stage with a smile on his face and the crowd explodes.)

Rex: OH MY LORD! HURRICANE HAWK! A FORMER WORLD CHAMPION, A FORMER CASH IN THE VAULT WINNER! ONE OF THE MOST DECORATED ELITISTS IN EAW’S HISTORY IS HERE AND HE IS READY TO FIGHT! MY GOD!

HYC: I can’t believe this! This was totally unexpected, mang! COMPLETELY OUT OF LEFT FIELD! I CAN BARELY HEAR MYSELF TALK RIGHT NOW THE OVATION IS SO LOUD! AND LOOK AT THE MEN AND WOMEN IN THE RING! THEY HAVE ALMOST FROZEN IN PLACE WITH THIS NEWS!

Rex: The complexion of this match has completely changed! Hurricane Hawk looks in incredible shape as he slides into the ring to do battle!

(DING DING DING!!!)

HYC: NOT A SINGLE PERSON IS MOVING! THEY HAVE IDEA WHAT TO DO! THIS IS INCREDIBLE!

Rex: Look at Butcher though! He looks like he will be the first person to step up to Hawk to test himself. Butcher is a huge individual in comparison, but size of his opposition is not something that Hawk has ever let deter him. Butcher just stares at him for a moment and…. he starts laughing!?

Butcher: Heheheheh……some runt like you is what they’re all scared of?

HYC: Butcher just slapped Hawk in the face! HE JUST PAINTBRUSHED HIM! THE LEVEL OF DISRESPECK IS UNBELIEVABLE! BUT HAWK IMMEDIATELY STARTS PEPPERING HIM WITH ELBOWS TO THE FACE, STAGGERING THE BIGGER MAN! THE REST OF THE ELITISTS ARE JUST WATCHING! BUTCHER IS WOBBLING AS HAWK HITS AN ENZUGIRI! HAWK ON THE MOVE…. A BACKSPRING INTO THE ROPES……. LEGACY CUTTER! LEGACY CUTTER TO BUTCHER! Hawk picks him up by the hair…THROWS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE AND WE ALREADY HAVE OUR FIRST ELIMINATION AS BUTCHER HITS THE ARENA FLOOR!

Ring Announcer: Butcher has been eliminated!

Rex: Hawk is looking around at who will be the next person to throw a challenge his way. Nobody seems particularly up to it…. but TERRY CHAMBERS JUST BLINDSIDES NATHAN FIORA! WE HAVE A MELEE UNDERWAY NOW AS EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO FIGHT! ANGELA SALVETTI AND SCARLET ARE BATTLING IN ONE CORNER!

HYC: Nico Borg and Kevin Hunter are exchanging chops! Dario Shaw is looking around for someone to fight and Nobi obliges him happily with a right hand connecting straight to the jaw! Check this out though! Mareo and Autumn Raven have not moved since this bell sounded! It’s like they have some sort of plan to get things done here.

Rex: Liam Catterson seeks out Hawk and the two of them get face to face now! A lot of tradition, lot of accolades between the two of them and here they are facing off in this 24/7 Battle Royal! Both of them swing at each other and land blows at the same time! Hawk taking the worse of it though and is reeling against the ropes!

HYC: Terry Chambers has somebody by the hair. I think that’s poor Beretta! Chambers lifts him up like a small child over his shoulders…. T-5! THE RING RATTLED ON THAT ONE, BROTHER!

Rex: I think many a person is making a point of it to stay away from Terry after that one. Everyone’s fighting and battling but they are making it a point to stay out of this man’s way. Chambers picks up Beretta and its easy pickings for him as he goes over the top rope to the arena floor with a thud.

Ring Announcer: Beretta is ELIMINATED!

Rex: Liam Catterson is still trying to Eliminate Hawk, he’s got him up on those ropes and is desperate to get rid of what, in all due respect to everyone else, may be his most dangerous competition in this battle royal! He’s almost got him over……HAWK’s legs are fluttering, kicking desperately as he tries to stay alive…. CHRISTIAN LOCKE WITH A CLUBBING FOREARM FROM BEHIND STUNS LIAM AND HAWK GOES OVER THE ROPES! He lands on the apron though and is safe for now!

HYC: Nobi and Nico Borg are trying to get Kevin Hunter out of the match but he’s fighting, throwing punches at both men to keep himself alive. Dario Shaw sees Hawk down and immediately hops onto him like a Pitbull, throwing punches hard on him to try to soften him up some more….

Rex: Terry Chambers is looking around and poor Raymundo Rhyse was the first thing that he came into contact with…. BIG KNEE TO THE STOMACH! Terry lifts him up……look at the strength of this man! All the power on display here from Chambers…. BIG TIME JACKHAMMER!! Chambers is absolutely laying waste to folks! I mean for goodness sake; Berretta is just now getting up to his feet!

HYC: Uh-oh…. Terry has Raymundo up in a gorilla press position…. LIFTING HIM UP! Several people are fighting near the ropes…. BUT TERRY CHAMBERS THROWS HIM OVER THEIR HEADS AND ONTO THE ARENA FLOOR RIGHT ONTO BERRETTA, WHO HAD JUST GOTTEN UP TO HIS FEET! RAYMUNDO IS GONE! JEEZ LOUISE!

Ring Announcer: Raymundo Rhyse has been Eliminated!

Rex: We were supposed to start with seventeen, but that number ticked up one with a surprise addition of Hurricane Hawk and now the action shifts back to Christian Locke being pounded on by Liam Catterson. The veteran having his way with one of EAW’s most sensational recent arrivals, picking him up and landing a picture perfect spinebuster in the center of the ring! Angela and Scarlet are continuing to do battle, Scarlet trying to get her….

(“Spice up Your Life” by the Spice Girls suddenly hits in the arena as Kora Kosgrove makes her way down to the ring, not dressed in wrestling attire but instead a beautiful backless white sequined mini dress with matching heels.)

HYC: Uh………. what?

Rex: Um, Ladies and Gentlemen, if you’re not aware, that’s Kora Kosgrove, one of the friendliest people in EAW and a gifted athlete. I don’t understand why she’s out here, dressed like that….

HYC: I think we’ll find out pretty soon, though. She’s not a shock addition to the match, I don’t think. I know for sure she’s an idiot though.

(HRDO looks on absolutely perplexed from ringside as Kora slides into the ring, barely avoiding the various moving bodies as she steps to the center, beginning to dance.)

Rex: Dario Shaw is distracted a little bit. He looks like he likes what he sees as Kora makes the ring her personal dance hall. Autumn Raven moves away from her corner, finally as Dario walks up to Kora…AUTUMN RUNS UP AND KICKS HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE! SHE NEARLY TOOK HIS HEAD OFF WITH THAT RUNNING BOOT!

HYC: Kora is still dancing around, oblivious to the stares of some of the people in the ring! Some of them are just confused to why she’s here…others are….um……you figure it out at home, kids.

Rex: It looks like the party may be over though as both Autumn and Scarlet walk over to her and Scarlet grabs her by the shoulder to turn her around! Kora looks perplexed!

Scarlet: THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HERE!? ARE YOU TRYING TO HOG OUR SPOTLIGHT!

Kora: I was invited! I was told there was gonna be a big party here tonight with fireworks and free food and everything!

(Scarlet looks over at Autumn with a confused look before looking back at Kora)

Scarlet: Huh?

Kora: One of the other girls sent me a text saying that there was going to be a big 24/7 party here! I got here a little late but it’s going to go on for 24 hours anyway, right? Wait….so this isn’t an actual party!?

Scarlet: No.

Kora: You guys are having a match right now?

Scarlet: Yes.

Kora:there isn’t any free food here?

Scarlet: NO!

(Annoyed, Autumn grabs Kora by the hair to throw her out of the ring but before she can make a move towards the ropes, Angela Salvetti comes and grabs both Autumn and Scarlet by the hair and knocks their heads together.)

Rex: Angela with the save as both Autumn and Scarlet are dizzied! Angela throws Scarlet up over and out! Dario throws out Autumn, getting a little payback for that boot he took to the face, two eliminations in rapid fire order!

Ring Announcer: Both Autumn Raven and Scarlet have been eliminated!

HYC: After that miniature episode of Total Vixens, we’ve only got one officially left in the match as Angela is trying to get Kora out of the ring, but Terry Chambers stands in the way of the two of them. What the hell is his problem!? Neither one of these two are a threat to him really….

Rex: Dario comes running up with a big forearm to the face…but Terry brushes it off and throws a right hand that hits flush before clotheslining Dario down! But here comes Christian Locke, JD Damon, Nobi…. TRIPLE TEAM SUPERKICK! TERRY FALLS DOWN FLAT ON HIS BACK!

HYC: And now Kora is able to scamper to safety, Angela holding the ropes for her and helping her out! Thank goodness!

Rex: We’re getting down to some serious business now though. Liam Catterson has Hurricane Hawk AGAIN on the ropes. Nathan Fiore coming over to lend a hand as they try to eliminate the hall of famer! Kevin Hunter trying to pick off the bones so to speak, targeting a downed Terry Chambers, putting the boots to him! And now he pulls him up off the canvas to try to eliminate him but Terry breaks free of his grasp…BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!

HYC: MAERO FINALLY MOVING FROM HIS PERCH ON THE TOP ROPE! HE FINALLY JOINS IN THE ACTION OF THIS MATCH AND LANDS A VICIOUS DIVING DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP TO THE DOWNED KEVIN HUNTER!

Rex: Terry looks on a bit amused, as if that was just a gift that made his task that much easier. He scoops up Hunter and dumps him over the top rope! Another elimination for Chambers!

Ring Announcer: Kevin Hunter has been eliminated!

Rex: We’re down to twelve as this battle royal continues! Dario Shaw is back up to his feet and is met with a LOBOTOMY BY MAERO! My God this is turning into some display from this cold-hearted individual. Terry Chambers again there to pick on the bones…but here comes Christian Locke, Nico Borg, JD Damon, Nathan Fiora, Kenny Drake! Anyone and everyone with a pulse left attacking Chambers, but he’s fighting back! Head-butting everyone who gets in his way!

HYC: Dario Shaw is up on his feet somehow, barely, but he’s trying to find his way to his feet. Liam and Hawk are STILL FIGHTING each other, trying to see the other off but Dario comes in and swings and hits Liam wildly. And then he nails Hawk!? Hawk doesn’t appreciate it much and responds with a European uppercut…LIAM WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE OF DARIO….AND THE TWO OF THEM UNITE, FOR ONCE, AND THROW DARIO OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE FLOOR! ANOTHER ELIMINATION!

Ring Announcer: Dario Shaw has been eliminated!

Rex: Back over by Terry Chambers, Angela Salvetti has perched herself on the top rope and tries to jump onto his back from behind as he fights off some of the other people involved in the battle royal! She’s got a sleeper hold on him! She’s trying to choke the life out of him! Terry is able to get over to the ropes…. but there is no rope break that does him no good here…but he grabs Angela by the hair…. Kenny Drake joining in to help…pushing Angela by the rear end!

HYC: Are you kidding me!? He’s copping a feel!? THAT is his big plan on how to win this match!?

Rex: Well it is every man and woman for themselves as Angela is pushed over and onto the ring apron! Drake tries a spinning backfist but Angela ducks and slaps him HARD across the face as he turns around…. but LIAM CATTERSON! LIAM CATTERSON CHARGES INTO THE ROPES AND PUSHES HER ONTO THE FLOOR! HER NIGHT IS DONE!

Ring Announcer: Angela Salvetti is eliminated!

Rex: The Vixens contingent is completely gone now and 10 Elitists remain with the opportunity to hold the 24/7 contract!

HYC: Maero is now making his move attacking Christian Locke, now, landing kicks and punches and forcing him into a corner! Maero took his sweet time getting involved in this match, but once he found his footing he’s in full tilt!

Rex: Nathan Fiora exchanging kicks with JD Damon right now, the two of them battling. And once again, Hurricane Hawk and Liam are battling and now Liam is brought down with a kick to the jaw! HAWK HOLDING UP THE HAND…HE GOES IN…. TELLS HIM ABOUT THOSE DEAD PRESIDENTS…THEN LANDS THE BIG FIST RIGHT TO THE HEAD!

HYC: Kenny Drake is trying to sneak up on Terry Chambers but Terry turns around and immediately squares up. Drake realizes that he’s in serious trouble here and turns right around…but lands in embrace of Nobi who hits him with a Lariat! Nathan Fiora waiting as he struggles up to his feet, a dazzling array of Fury kicks stuns Drake….and Hurricane Hawk sees Drake out of the ring with a dropkick that sends him up over and out to the arena floor!

Ring Announcer: Kenny Drake is Eliminated!

Rex: Maero and Christian Locke are exchanging punches in the center of the ring as Terry Chambers and Liam Catterson immediately double team Nathan Fiora! The youngster is in trouble as the two bigger, stronger veterans have him in trouble on the ropes! He’s kicking desperately at the two of them trying to fight back! They get him over but he lands on his feet! Terry Chambers tries to clothesline him down but he misses… ENZUGIRI FROM NATHAN AS HE REMAINS ALIVE! LIAM TRIES A SNEAK ATTACK…BUT HE MISSES AS WELL! PELE KICK FROM NATHAN! WHAT AGILITY ON DISPLAY…. BUT NICO BORG! NICO BORG OUT OF NOWHERE TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A RUNNING FOREARM AND KNOCKS HIM INTO THE SECURITY BARRICADE!

Ring Announcer: Nathan Fiora is Eliminated!

HYC: And now look at this! JD Damon, Maero, Christian Locke and Terry Chambers are all circling around Nobi, who realizes he’s in a bind and says bring it on to all of them! He throws up his hands ready for a fight and here they come! He takes Locke down with a right hand! Damon comes at him and a kick to the chest from Nobi sends Damon into the ropes…. Nobi jumps up and hits him with a Thesz press! Terry Chambers tries to intervene but he’s cut off with a flying forearm from Hurricane Hawk! Hawk trying to lend a hand to the Indonesian but Liam again attacking him from behind and those two are back to fighting!

Rex: Nobi is holding his own though as Maero is hit with a vicious chop to the chest, but JD Damon and Locke are both back up and they are beating the holy hell out of him, clobbering him with forearms and elbows and knees. Nobi is trying to fight back and he does…he’s hitting both men with everything he’s got, punches to the midsection first before punches to the head, but again Nico Borg comes in and lands a forearm to the back…and now Locke, Damon and Borg both have Nobi on the ropes…. He’s trying to cling to the bottom one and keep his dream alive…keep his hopes for the contract alive…. but JD AND LOCKE PRY HIS FINGERS ALOOSE AS BORG TOSSES HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE ARENA FLOOR!

Ring Announcer: Nobi has been eliminated!

HYC: That’s unfortunate! He wasn’t scared to take anybody on. Gotta give him respect for that.

Rex: Anyway, we’re down to seven men now as JD celebrates a little, taunting some of the fans at ringside for eliminating Nobi. AND LOOK AT THIS THOUGH…. CHRISTIAN AND NICO WORK TOGETHER AND THROW JD OUT AND HE CANT BELIEVE IT! HE SPRINGS UP TO HIS FEET AND NEARLY JUMPS THE BARRICADE TRYING TO GET AT A FAN! HE IS LIKE A MAN POSSESSED!

Ring Announcer: JD DAMON HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!

Rex: We are down to six men now as Hawk and Liam continue the battle that’s basically gone on the entire evening with those two! Such great legends. AND CHRISTIAN AND NICO BORG COME IN ATTACKING THEM BOTH! NICO BORG ASSAULTING CATTERSON! CHRISTIAN TAKING HIS SHOTS AT HAWK! BUT HAWK IS BATTLING BACK…HAWK LANDING SOME HARD RIGHT HANDS TO THE JAW OF LOCKE AND HE TAKES HIM DOWN!

HYC: Maero comes flying in out of nowhere again but this time Hawk is ready! THIS HAWK IS READY! HE AVOIDS MAERO AND LANDS A SUPER KICK! TERRY CHAMBERS OF ALL PEOPLE GIVES HIM A HAND, CLOTHESLINING MAERO OUT OF THE RING AND OUT OF THIS BATTLE ROYAL!

Ring Announcer: Maero has been eliminated!

Rex: We’re now down to four as Nico Borg continues to battle Liam Catterson, Liam now getting the upper hand with some vicious punches but Nico with a knee to the midsection…. he tries to lift Liam up……. Terry Chambers watching…. waiting…. BRAINBUSTER BY BORG ONTO LIAM! CATTERSON PLANTED ONTO HIS SKULL!

HYC: AND BORG PLANTED WITH A SPEAR ALMOST IMMEDIATELY BY CHAMBERS! CHAMBERS IS UP ON HIS FEET CELEBRATING! COULD THIS FINALLY BE HIS MOMENT IN THE 24/7 Battle Royal!? Chambers waiting for Borg to get back up…. CHAMBERS GOES FOR ANOTHER SPEAR……. BUT BORG COUNTERS WITH A DDT THIS TIME! AN INCREDIBLE SNAP DDT OUT OF THE SPEAR, USING TERRY’S OWN MOMENTUM AGAINST HIM!

Rex: Borg is up to his feet after that…but Christian comes from behind and tries to toss him over! NO! Borg responds with an elbow to the face! Borg comes in looking for a discus lariat, but Christian ducks…. CORKSCREW PELE KICK!!!! WHAT A MOVE THAT WAS. Borg is almost out on his feet…. SPINNING HEEL KICK BY CHRISTIAN WHO QUICKLY GETS UP TO HIS FEET NOW! HE IS OUT NOW!

Ring Announcer: Nico Borg is eliminated!

Rex: WE ARE DOWN TO FOUR NOW! CHRISTIAN LOCKE, TERRY CHAMBERS, LIAM CATTERSON AND HURRICANE HAWK! A HALL OF FAMER, A FORMER WORLD CHAMPION, ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL MEN IN WRESTLING LOOKING TO FINALLY WIN THIS EVENT AND ONE OF EAW’S PREMIER HIGH FLYERS! WHO WILL LEAVE WITH THE CONTRACT!?

HYC: Liam and Hawk have been at each other this entire time, continuing to pound away even as both continue to struggle to get to their feet…. look at this though! TERRY CHAMBERS FROM BEHIND GRABS BOTH MEN UP AND HE’S TRYING TO DUMP THEM OUT! HE DOES SO! LOOK AT THE STRENGTH! HAWK IS TRYING TO HANG ON! LIAM MANAGES TO SLIP BACK INTO THE RING AFTER ONLY LANDING ON THE APRON SOMEHOW! LOCKE JUMPS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE…. SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK FINALLY SENDS HURRICANE HAWK TO THE ARENA FLOOR! THE HALL OF FAMER IS ELIMINATED!

Ring Announcer: Hurricane Hawk is eliminated!

Rex: Hawk managed to battle and battle and battle, remaining in this match for as long as he could but the great competitor’s end to this match is the same disappointment all those before him faced.

(The fans near ringside stand and clap in appreciation as Hawk, disappointed and holding his shoulder, nods in thanks to them, heading back up the ramp. A quick look out into the crowd shows many others through the stadium doing the same.)

HYC: Nevermind that now, though! We’ve still got a winner here to decide!

Rex: Christian, Liam and Terry Chambers are all that’s left of the eighteen we started with! And now the three of them stand in the center of the ring, circling around each other.

Terry: YOU TWO THINK YOU CAN STOP ME! YOU TWO THINK YOU CAN BEAT ME!? THIS IS MY MOMENT AND I DON’T HAVE TO SHARE IT WITH EITHER OF YOU! ITS ALL! ABOUT! ME!

HYC: Apparently Liam has enough of the talking as he hits him with a right hand! Christian Locke standing aside for a moment, looking to see how this plays out. Terry Chambers responding with hard right hands of his own, fighting furiously to claim what he thinks is rightfully his. Christian finally breaks into the fray and starts kicking at the legs of both men, but Liam Catterson cuts him off with a head-butt…and Terry Chambers catches HIM with a head-butt and now he heads to the ropes and tries to dump Liam out…. Liam hanging on for dear life! He’s worked hard to get to this position and he is teetering on the brink of Elimination!

Rex: Terry Chambers using a lot of leverage here as he’s trying to get Liam out, the two of them are both leaning over the ropes, battering! Liam is almost out but he’s scratching, clawing, EVEN BITING AT TERRY’S FOREHEAD NOW! ANYTHING TO STAY ALIVE! THE TWO ARE EXCHANGING PUNCHES…. BUT LOOK OUT…CHRISTIAN LOCKE GRABS THE LEGS OF BOTH MEN! HE HOISTS THEM BOTH UP WITH ONE FINAL SURGE OF ENERGY, SENDING BOTH TO THE ARENA FLOOR! TERRY IS OUT! LIAM IS OUT! GUESS WHAT!? CHRISTIAN LOCKE IS THE 2016 24/7 CONTRACT WINNER!

(DING DING DING!!)

(“Enemy” by Blue Stahli plays as Christian Locke gets up in total disbelief, running up to one of the turnbuckles and celebrating. A dejected Liam Catterson sits near the barricade, watching the celebration in the ring while a furious Terry Chambers has to be escorted from ringside.)

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of this contest and the 24/7 CONTRACT……CHRSTIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN LOCKE!

(Christian Locke is handed the contract and attached trophy by Corporate HRDO, and Locke holds it up in the air as confetti rains down over him.)

Rex: Locke was in the right place, right time and picks up the signature moment of his career, at Pain for Pride. This capacity filled stadium stands and applauds! Even though many of them may not like him or his tactics, he put on a show with timely eliminations and dazzling kicks and survived a Hall of Famer in the process!

HYC: This battle royal had a little bit of everything to it, but it’s Locke’s perseverance that wins out. Unbelievable!

(We see Flannery McCoy on set at the interview area as she smiles at the camera.)

Flannery McCoy: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time…..Lucas Johnson!

(The angle widens as Lucas Johnson enters the picture, greeting Flannery.)

Flannery McCoy: Thank you for joining me. Now, Lucas you’re entering into your first Pain For Pride and you will be competing alongside four fellow New Breed competitors. How are you feeling about your side? You have to rely on them for the entirety of the match’s first phase so it could very well factor into your own success in the match.

Lucas: Honestly, I am feeling very good about Team New Breed, even though I haven’t really crossed paths with most of them I’ve seen what they can do. While I may not believe in some of my team’s beliefs or agree with their current actions I have to brush that aside and focus on the main task at hand.

Flannery McCoy: But are you at all worried about what may happen since you are all looking to fight for the same prize at the end? This is a Divide and Conquer match after all.

Lucas: I would say a little bit. When a group of people have to work together and they’re all after the same thing, it can get intense. It’s a bit scary, really. I know that our team is bound to fight with each other but like I said before I am going to focus on the positive and focus on defeating on the Vixens Division. I will not allow anyone to ruin this for me.

Flannery McCoy: Focusing on yourself and the task at hand is definitely a good idea. I must ask though, how confident are YOU that you’ll be able to walk away with the New Breed title?

Lucas: I must say, I am very confident in myself walking away with the New Breed Championship. I’ve been on a roll lately. I know it might be hard to accept for some, in fact everyone has been asking me why I’m here. They say “Lucas, you have the Young Lions Cup why are you going for the title? Wait your chance in line to get it.” Well let me tell you: Championship gold drives me every single day, and while I do have the Cup in my possession, I’ve worked as hard as just about everyone else in this match, I’m more than ready for this! This year has been tough for me but this last month or two has been my redemption and my redemption will finally be complete once I capture the New Breed Championship at my first Pain for Pride. I REFUSE to leave Miami without the New Breed title around my waist! This is my moment! This is my time! This is my opportunity….. And I won’t let it go to waste, that’s for damn sure.

(Lucas Johnson’s demeanor turns serious as he looks into the camera and then walks off as we fade away.)

(The camera cuts to the stadium as “Better Run, Better Hide” by Glitch Mob slowly dies down. The camera pans to one of the stadium’s jumbotron as http://i.imgur.com/MxANe90.png is displayed)

(“Put You On Game” by Lupe Fiasco hits as Scott Diamond emerges onto the stage with Albert Hitchman close behind. A single spotlight shines down but a thin blanket of smoke covers the stage floor and ramp. Lights under the stage flash randomly, simulating lightning as he makes he way to the ring)

Announcer: The following contest is a NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH! Introducing first, from Long Island, New York. Weighing in at two hundred and seventy five pounds! HE IS THE COLD. BLOODED. KILLER. SCOTTT……DDDDDIIIIIIAAAAAAAMMMMMMOOOOONNNNNDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!

Mercer: The decorated career of Scott Diamond writes another chapter tonight. It all started several weeks ago on Showdown in a tag team main event, a brawl breaking out between these two ended up deep into the crowd and into the halls of the arena. The following week both seemed destined to kill one another, with both men falling off the stage and through electrical equipment. James Shields feared they would continue to create such havoc week in and week out. Tonight they settle it, it ends here in a match where there is no absolutely no rules and bounds.

Masters: I have a sinking feeling this won’t be for the faint-hearted. Two weeks they’ve had to savour this, to build to this and prepare for a bloody war. As Scott Diamond picks up a steel chair situated at ringside, he’s ready to break Diamond Cage.

(“Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana hits and Scott Diamond grips the steel chair and faces towards the entrance ramp, anticipating his adversary. Moments pass as his music continues to play but no sign of Cage. Suddenly the fans explodes in applause as Cage emerges from stadium entry tunnel amongst the fans. He lifts a trash can filled with signs, bats, kendo sticks and various other weapons high in the air with a steel chair gripped in his other hand by his side. The camera pans to behind him to reveal the symbol for “Fighting Spirit” displayed across the back of his jacket. The fans swarm him as he makes his way down to the ring)

Announcer: And his opponent! From Las Vegas Nevada! Weighing in at two hundred and twenty six pounds! EVIL. DIAMOND. CAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

Mercer: Indestructible is perhaps the best word to describe this man. Throughout his career he has withstood so much pain, so much punishment but here he stands, still lacking any ounce of fear. He feasts on these matches. Anything goes, the weapons, the pure brutality to not just his opponents, but his own health and wellbeing creates an environment he THRIVES in.

(Cage continues to make his way through the crowd, constantly being swarmed by fans who slap him on the back and shoulder. Scott slams his chair against the ropes, the canvas and turnbuckles, eager for Cage to step into the ring)

Masters: We’re in for a war, an absolute bloodbath. Diamond Cage has come well and truly prepared here tonight. IF YOU WANTED TECHNICAL WRESTLING, THEN YOU WON’T FIND IT HERE.

(Cage hops the barricade and places his trash can next to the Showdown announce table. Scott Diamond steps back and allows Cage to enter the ring. Cage cautiously makes his way up the steps and enters the ropes)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Mercer: You wanted a fight? We’re going to see one! They’re wasting no time, absolutely no time and immediately both men race towards the middle of the ring with chairs and swing at one another. The clashing of the chairs echo throughout the stadium and both men reel from the collision. They charge back towards one another with the chairs and swing once again, the chairs again clash, echoing throughout the stadium and this time both men drop their weapons. Cage the first to charge towards his opponent but Scott cuts him off with a big boot. Immediately clutching the jaw, Cage rushes back to his feet, resting against the turnbuckle as Scott charges towards him but Cage manages to get the elbow up! It connects to the jaw and Scott comes reeling out of the collision. Cage pulls himself to the second rope and turns around; Scott trying to pull him back down to the canvas but Cage manages to use enough force to push Scott away. MISSILE DROPKICK! NO. SCOTT MOVES AWAY AND DROPS DOWN WITH A STANDING ELBOW DROP! JAGGED EDGE? CAGE SLIPS OUT OF THE WAY AND PICKS UP THE CHAIR HE DROPPED JUST MOMENTS AGO; HITCHMAN HANDS SCOTT ONE FROM THE OUTSIDE. Scott turns and swings but Cage ducks; Scott stumbles and Cage quickly turns around and swings, connecting with the chair shot to the spine! It brings Scott to his knees as he drops the chair. Cage quickly follows it up with a second chair shot to the arm and Scott immediately rolls out of the ring — CAGE THROWS THE CHAIR OUT OF THE RING RIGHT AT SCOTT DIAMOND! THE CHAIR BOUNCES OFF THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!

Masters: AND CAGE QUICKLY HITS THE ROPES AND DIVES ABOVE THE MIDDLE ROPE! SUICIDE DIVE! IT CONNECTS AND BOTH MEN TUMBLE INTO THE BARRICADE. Cage races back to his feet and raises his hands wide, staring at hole right at Albert Hitchman, sending the message that his client is in the palm of his hand so early in this contest. Cage makes it way back over to his trash can and pulls out a kendo stick! He holds it high in the end and becomes encouraged by the fans to use it! He makes his way back around to Scott Diamond but Scott cuts him off with a shoulder block that sends Cage crashing back and head first into the steel steps! Immediately erasing Cage’s momentum. Scott dusts the cobwebs off before picking up Cage’s kendo stick and whacks it across his back! Repeated kendo shots, the stick bends more and more, the cracking sound becoming dimmer and dimmer. Eventually the stick breaks in two! Scott discards the useless kendo sticks and orders Hitchman to grab another! Hitchman does just that, pulls one from Cage’s trash can and tosses it to Scott. AGAIN, cracking the stick over the spine of Diamond Cage who withers in pain on the floor. Cage uses the steel steps to get back to his feet and Scott stalks, waiting for him to do so. Finally back to his feet but Scott wraps his arms around his waist and pulls him towards the ramp! Cage trying to fight with all his might but Scott manages to lift him up and over for the German suplex! Cage coming down hard on the steel of the stage ramp! Scott pulls Cage back to his feet immediately and throws him back into the ring before sliding into the cover.

ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Mercer: Diamond Cage powers out of the pin! Scott resting on his knees begins to deliver several forearm shots, trying to bust Cage open! But Cage is covering up! Protecting his face, protecting his forehead. Albert Hitchman strolls over to the trash can and removes one of the few signs and slides it into the ring; Scott picks it up and begins to smack it across the forearms, the head, the face of Diamond Cage! He’s bending the damn sign in half! Hitchman begins to fill the ring with the remaining signs; he looks under the ring and slides in several steel chairs as Scott gets to his feet, pulling Cage with him. Cage trying to fight back and successfully pushes Scott onto the ropes. Scott hits them and darts back for a clothesline but Cage ducks. Scott rebounds off the opposite ropes but Cage cuts him off with a spinning backfist! The fist rocks Scott but he simply shakes it off; he swings again for a lariat but Cage again ducks and floats around to the back into the full nelson! DRAGON SUPLEX! THE DRAGON SUPLEX CONNECTS WITH THE BACK OF SCOTT’S HEAD COLLIDING WITH SEVERAL SIGNS. HE HOLDS THE BRIDGE FOR THE PIN.

ONNEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Masters: SCOTT KICKS OUT! Cage realises he can’t waste much time but still slowly rises back to his feet, pulling Scott Diamond by the arm — SCOTT CRACKS A STEEL CHAIR OVER THE SKULL OF DIAMOND CAGE!!! A CRACKING SHOT ECHOES THROUGHOUT THE STADIUM. CAGE STUMBLES BACKWARDS AS BLOOD BEGINS TO TRICKLE FROM THE FOREHEAD. HE STUMBLES INTO THE ROPES AND COLLAPSES THROUGH THE MIDDLE AND ONTO THE RING APRON. MY GOODNESS HIS BRAINS MUST HAVE BEEN SCRAMBLED! Scott rises back to a vertical base and makes his way over to the ropes as Cage slowly uses them to get back to his feet. Scott stands on the bottom rope and wraps his arms around Cage! BELLY TO BELLY! WHAT STRENGTH BY SCOTT DIAMOND HAS HE FLINGS CAGE OVER THE TOP ROPE AND SENDS HIM CRASHING INTO THE PILE OF SIGNS AND CHAIRS! CAGE CLUTCHES HIS BACK IN PAIN BUT SCOTT SHOWS NO SIGNS OF SLOWING DOWN.

Mercer: Hitchman barking orders to destroy, annihilate Diamond Cage to his client. Cage rolls onto his hands and knees as Scott picks up one of the steel chairs! He drives the rim of the chair into the lower back, the kidneys of Cage! Not once, but twice, three times before simply smacking it in the dead middle! Cage continues to clutch at his back as Scott rolls him over, driving the forearm across the face and hooking the leg!

ONEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEE—

Masters: KICKOUT! CAGE GETS THE SHOULDER UP BEFORE THE THREE. Hitchman against sending out orders, directing Scott to remain calm and collected. Repeating that he has him, he’s in control. Scott rolls out of the ring, the opposite side of the announce table and it seems he’s after something under the ring. Meanwhile, Cage rolls out in front of us and slowly crawls to his trash can in front of us. Scott rises from the other side of the ring — oh no! Lead pipe in hand! A smug expression casts across the face of Hitchman and Scott Diamond arrogantly makes his way to the other side of the ring. Scott lining Cage up….Cage with his arm still inside the can turns around. A VICIOUS SHOT WITH THE LEAD PIPE — NO! CAGE WITH A GLASS BOTTLE! SHARDS OF GLASS GO FLYING AS IT SHATTERS ON IMPACT. NOW SCOTT HAS BEEN BUSTED OPEN. The ringside area is covered in pieces of broken glass and drops of blood but Cage manages to remain upright as a stunned Albert Hitchman looks on, in complete shock. Cage slowly pulls Scott to the ring and rolls him inside.

Mercer: He rolls in himself but doesn’t opt for a pin! Instead he starts organising the steel chairs and signs, placing them on top of and under Scott Diamond! He keeps a chair for himself and climbs to the top rope! CAGE HOLDS THE CHAIR TO HIS CHEST! MOONSAULT! IT CONNECTS AS THE WEIGHT OF CAGE COMES CRASHING DOWN! A RARE MOVE FROM DIAMOND CAGE BUT HE REALISES HE MUST DO EVERYTHING HE CAN TO WIN HERE TONIGHT. HE DRAGS SCOTT AWAY FROM THE PILE OF METAL AND ROLLS INTO THE COVER!

ONNEEEEEE!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEE—

Masters: SCOTT DIAMOND POWERS OUT! HOW ON EARTH DID HE? CAGE SLIPS OFF SCOTT, PUSHING HIS WAY TO THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE AND HE PUNCHES IT OUT OF FRUSTRATION. He risked his own health and it didn’t come off! Hitchman climbs onto the ring apron and starts begging, pleading for Scott to get back to his feet and continue fighting. Cage pulls himself back to his feet and makes his way over to Hitchman. Hitchman tries to get back down but Cage pulls him by the collar of his suit! Albert Hitchman again begs but this time, begging for Cage to let go… and he agrees? NOPE. SUPERKICK! A SUPERKICK FLOORS HITCHMAN WHO BOUNCES OFF THE APRON AND ONTO THE RINGSIDE AREA, BARELY AVOIDING SHARDS OF GLASS. WATCH OUT! CAGE STEPS BACK BUT INTO THE GRASP OF SCOTT DIAMOND WHO LOOKS FOR A GERMAN — CAGE REVERSES AND SPINS HIM AROUND, HE SPINS AROUND HIMSELF AND CONNECTS WITH A ROLLING ELBOW! SCOTT BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND DELIVERS A KNEE TO A MIDSECTION, FOLLOWED UP IMMEDIATELY BY A FACEBREAKER KNEE SMASH. Both men collapse to the canvas out of exhaustion.

Mercer: Both men with blood trickling down their foreheads, busted open by the chair shots and glass bottles. Slowly climbing back to a vertical base, rocking one another with stiff punches aimed directly at each other’s wounds! Scott blocks a right swing from Cage and throws him out of the ring to buy him some time. Cage lands hard on the outside and Scott slowly exits. Methodically stalking Cage as he rises back to his feet; THE POINT BLANK BICYCLE KICK! NO IT MISSES AND SCOTT GETS CAUGHT UP ON THE BARRICADE! Cage quickly responds with a double axehandle to the back of the head, knocking Scott over the barricade and into the seats at ringside. Cage tries to pull Scott to his feet but Scott simply drags him down by the hair! Cage’s face bouncing off a chair at ringside but he quickly staggers back to his feet, trying to catch his breath, moving further and further into the crowd but Scott Diamond is hot of his trail. Cage rests against a steel barrier separating the fans from the tech area and kicks at Scott’s knee cap! Scott stumbles towards the barricade but manages to get his hands up. Cage tries to smash his head into the steel but Scott counters with an elbow right to the ribs. Scott back in control as he again grabs Cage by the back of the head and throws him into a row of photographers situated at the base of the scaffolding that houses the cameras! Cage trying to again fight back with lefts and rights but Scott simply shrugs them off and continues his assault! Left and right forearm shots to the back, sending Cage reeling into the camera situation on a dolly. CAGE SWINGS THE CAMERA AROUND AND COLLECTS SCOTT IN THE FACE! SCOTT STUMBLES BACK ONTO THE SCAFFOLDING AND CAGE IS QUICK TO REACT! GERMAN SUPLEX! ALL HIS STRENGTH AND MIGHT, HE HITS THE GERMAN ON THE DOLLY TRACKS!

Masters: Cage grabs the various steel bars holding up the tech area to pull himself to his feet as he moves around to the small staircase but Scott is in hot pursuit! Personnel operating the computers quickly scatter, to get out of the way of this war. Cage trying to fend off Scott throwing water bottles and then papers. HE CRACKS HIM OVER THE HEAD WITH A LAPTOP! SCOTT FALLS TO A KNEE AS CAGE QUICKLY CLIMBS A SECOND SET OF STAIRS. HE REACHES THE SECOND PLATFORM AND QUICKLY DIVES OFF IT INTO SCOTT DIAMOND! BUT SCOTT CATCHES HIM – DDT! CAGE CONNECTS WITH THE DDT RIGHT ONTO THE STEEL STEPS. Scott quickly bounces to his feet but collapses onto one of the desks, sending a computer monitor tumbling over the edge; still so much life left in him as Albert Hitchman watches from the entry point, watching from afar but trying to will his client on! Cage pulls Scott to his feet but Scott counters with a knee to the mid section before driving the head of Diamond Cage into scaffolding! The highest platform shakes and the cameraman bails immediately! He stumbles past these two absolute warriors as Scott begins to lay in repeated boots; stomping away at Cage who has slumped up against the steel. Cage kicks out of the knee and pulls Scott down, face first into the steel by his beard! Cage quickly crawls away but Scott grabs him by the ankle! Quickly, desperately, Cage kicks back; driving his boot back into Scott’s face. Cage quickly gets back to his feet but realises he has nowhere to go as Scott rises to his. He’s corned and Scott Diamond has realised it. BUT CAGE LAUNCHES HIMSELF CATCHING SCOTT OFF GUARD WITH A FOREARM SHOT. SCOTT FALLS TO THE PLATFORM AND CAGE BEGINS TO SCALE THE LADDER TO THE HIGHEST PLATFORM.

Mercer: NOW AT THE HIGHEST PEAK OF THE TECH AREA! SCOTT CLIMBS AFTER HIM BUT CAGE STOMPS ON HIS FINGERS AT HE REACHES THE FINAL RUNG. CAGE TRYING TO KEEP SCOTT DIAMOND AWAY FROM HIM BUT SCOTT IS DETERMINED TO PUT AN END TO THIS AND CAGE HAS NOWHERE, ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE TO GO. CAGE TRIES TO STOP ON THE FINGERS OF SCOTT DIAMOND ONCE AGAIN BUT SCOTT GRABS HIM BY THE ANKLE AND SWEEPS HIM OFF HIS FEET, ALLOWING HIM TO FINALLY REACH THE PLATFORM. ONCE AGAIN, TRADING LEFTS AND RIGHTS, TEETERING OVER THE EDGE, A THIRTY FOOT DROP TO THE GROUND BELOW. CAGE GETTING THE UPPER HAND WITH HIS FISTS MAKING THE GASH ACROSS THE SCOTT’S FOREHEAD GREATER. HE PROCEEDS TO RIP THE CAMERA FROM IT’S STAND AND DRIVES IT INTO THE SKULL OF SCOTT DIAMOND! CAGE DROPS THE CAMERA TO THE FLOOR AND TURNS BACK AROUND — LOW BLOW! CAGE IMMEDIATELY STUMBLES BACK AND SCOTT IS QUICK TO REACT, HE GRABS CAGE BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD.

Masters: OH NO. NO. NO PLEASE DON’T DO THIS! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON’T! SCOTT DIAMOND THROWS DIAMOND CAGE FROM THE TOP OF THE TECH AR–

(The microphones cut out temporarily as the lighting and screens in the stadium go haywire. The stage turns black before appearing in its reset mode. Emergency lights on the stadium kick in to provide some light as various staff members, medics to check on Cage and technicians to restore power to the various lights and screens. The middle rung of lights over the ring return to provide some light to ringside and manual spotlights below the stadium’s Jumbotrons become fixated on the carnage beside the tech area. Replays show Cage being thrown from the tech area from different angles before panning to Jake Mercer and Masters at ringside)

Mercer: Ladies and gentlemen, we apologise for these technical difficulties. Scott Diamond has thrown Diamond Cage off the top of the tech area, the production area where all the cameras, all the wires operating the overhead, the screens, the stage etc all run to. Cage, thankfully, crashed into a box that connects most of, almost all the lights and screens instead of the concrete. Medical personal are quick on the scene but this stadium has fallen to a hush. You could almost hear a pin drop.

(More lights return to their normal self around the stadium a the emergency lights fade back out. Aside from large lights hanging from the overhead and the stage once again blacks out, everything returns to normal)

Masters: And look up there, Scott Diamond is slowly making his way down the various levels, laughing at himself, proud of what he’s accomplished. Shields said they can do whatever they please, tear this stadium apart but it must end tonight. They almost ended this show, but surely Diamond Cage is done. He’s barely moved since making contact. Medics trying to evaluate Cage but…hold on…Scott just turned the corner and he sees blood. He licks his lips, Cage is there for him to be picked at. COME ON LEAVE THE POOR GUY ALONE, HAVEN’T YOU DONE ENOUGH? Scott shoves the medics out of the way and drags the lifeless Diamond Cage to his feet. CAGE TRYING TO FIGHT BACK BUT SCOTT FLINGS HIM INTO A GROUP OF SEATS! Steel chairs collapsing around Cage as he tries to get back to his feet but Scott pulls him back to his feet and throws him into ANOTHER group of seats, this time closer to the ringside area! Cage stumbles to his feet and collapses against the ringside barricade trying to pull himself up and Scott Diamond delivers a wicked clothesline sending Cage up and over! Crashing hard on the back of his neck. Scott slowly steps over the barricade with a sick grin still displayed across his face. He grabs Cage by his hair and drags him towards the ring but Cage tries to fight free with several elbow shots to the ribs. Scott fires back with an uppercut before a kick to a mid section. Scott pulls Cage in and lifts him up onto his shoulders, DRIVING CAGE SPINE FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST AND THEN AN APRON POWERBOMB!!! Cage folds on the floor but Scott quickly pulls him by his hair again and rolls him into the ring.

Mercer: Now Scott Diamond makes his way around to our announce table. He tips Cage’s trash can over before kicking the pile of contents away; a leather sack grabs his attention and he opens it up. The grin across his face grows wider and wider as he clutches it in his hand, not allowing the camera to peak in. Scott now rolls back into the ring and stands over Cage who is still recovering in the middle of the ring. Scott with a swift kick to the ribs rolls Cage onto his back and now Scott uses his boot to hold open his jaw! Scott is simply chuckling to himself as he begins to slowly tip the bag upside down. THUMBTACKS! THUMBTACKS RAIN DOWN ONTO THE FACE AND INTO THE MOUTH OF DIAMOND CAGE! THEY SPILL ONTO HIS CHEST AND ONTO THE CANVAS. SCOTT HAS EMPTIED THE BAG COMPLETE AND TOSSES IT OUT OF THE RING. SHAKES THE TACKS OFF HIS BOOT AND STOPS ONTO THE CHEST OF CAGE! DRIVING SEVERAL TACKS INTO HIS CHEST AND CAGE SIMPLY WINCHES IN PAIN. Scott pulls Cage to his feet by his hair once again AND CONNECTS WITH THE UPPERCUT! THE TACKS IN THE MOUTH OF CAGE RATTLE ABOUT AND IMMEDIATELY CAGE SPITS MANY OF THEM OUT, MANY COVERED IN BLOOD. ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR STUCK IN HIS MOUTH, PUNCTURING THE TONGUE, THE ROOF AND INNER LINING OF HIS MOUTH. CAGE REELS ONTO THE ROPES AND BEGINS TO PAINFULLY PICK THE REMAIN TACKS FROM HIS MOUTH.

Masters: But look at his eyes! The taste of his own blood seems to have inspired Cage. Scott moves in but Cage quickly spins around and delivers a knife edge chop! It echoes throughout the stadium before Cage follows it up with a punch to the jaw! Another chop and another punch! Back and forth, Diamond Cage firing away with the combo as Scott stumbles back. Scott responds with a desperation knee but it barely phases Cage as he fires immediately with a dropkick! Scott drops to the canvas and several tacks puncture his arm. He quickly starts to pick them out but Cage delivers a stiff kick, driving them further into the skin! Diamond Cage is wearing a crimson mask as blood flows from the cut across his forehead and the damage the tacks did to his mouth! He stumbles a bit from exhaustion — SUPERKICK! The Superkick connects to the seated Scott Diamond who falls back to the canvas. Cage exits under the bottom rope and looks under the ring, searching for a new weapon. He peaks his head back out from under the apron and the look of pure joy is dashed across his face! Slowly he pulls out a barbed wire baseball bat! A sick grin comes over his face as he rolls back into the ring. Scott turns around AND CAGE SWINGS FOR THE FENCES! THE BARBED WIRE CONNECTS TO THE GUT OF SCOTT DIAMOND WHO DROPS TO HIS KNEES. CAGE SWINGS THE BAT AROUND AS HE MOVES BEHIND SCOTT. HE RAISES THE BAT BEFORE BRINGING IT DOWN ON HIS BACK! THE BARBED WIRE RIPPING AND TEARING THE FLESH OFF OF SCOTT’S BACK. Scott squirms on the canvas as Albert Hitchman tries to encourage Scott to leave the ring.

Mercer: But Cage won’t allow it! He pulls Scott back to his feet by his tights and delivers a kick to the mid section! He pulls him in for a suplex; HE’S LOOKING FOR MERCY RULE! THE BRAINBUSTER! BUT SCOTT DIAMOND FALLS TO THE CANVAS AND SCOOPS UP A NUMBER OF THUMBTACKS UNBEKNOWINGLY TO DIAMOND CAGE. CAGE PULLS SCOTT BACK UP AND LIFTS HIM UP FOR MERCY RULE! LOOKING TO DROP HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE THUMBTACKS BUT SCOTT DRIVES THE THUMBTACKS IN HIS HAND INTO THE FOREHEAD, INTO THE OPEN WOUND OF DIAMOND CAGE! CAGE IMMEDIATELY RELEASES HIS HOLD, CLUTCHING HIS FOREHEAD IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN! SCOTT FALLS TO THE CANVAS, AVOIDING THE TACKS AS CAGE TRIES TO REMOVE THE TACKS. HE TURNS AND SCOTT PULLS HIM IN FOR A POWERBOMB. HE LIFTS HIM UP AND OVER HIS HEAD, CAGE IS LOCKED IN COLD HARD JUSTICE AS SCOTT DIAMOND AIMS FOR THE PILE OF TACKS. IT CONNECTS!!! NO!!! CAGE MANAGES TO BREAK FREE; HE COLLAPSES TO THE CANVAS BUT HE GRABS THE BARBED WIRE BAT. BOTH MEN TURN. CAGE SWINGS AND THE BARBED WIRE CONNECTS WITH THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF SCOTT!!! THE WIRE DIGS INTO THE CHEEK AND TEARS AT THE FLESH. SCOTT STUMBLES AROUND AS CAGE TRIES TO FIND HIS COMPOSURE. HE SWEEPS BEHIND SCOTT INTO A WRIST LOCK! THE TRANSITION AND HE CONNECTS WITH A SHORT ARM LARIAT! SCOTT FALLS INTO THE PILE OF THUMBTACKS BUT CAGE ISN’T DONE. HE PULLS HIM BACK TO HIS FEET AND LIFTS HIM ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! GO TO SLEEP! MURDER. DEATH. KILL. THE COMBINATION KNOCKS SCOTT’S LIGHTS OUT AS SCOTT DIAMOND COLLAPSES BACK INTO THE TACKS ONCE AGAIN. CAGE DROPS TO HIS KNEES BEFORE FALLING OVER SCOTT.

ONNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana hits and Diamond Cage, with the assist of the referee stumbles to his feet with his hand raised in victory)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner via pinfall… DIAMONDDDDDDDDD CAGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Mercer: Bloodied beyond belief, a crimson mask painting his face. Surviving an incredible fall. Diamond Cage ladies and gentlemen. To withstand so much pain, so much punishment and to be able to walk away is an incredible feat. Glass, thumbtacks, steel chairs, kendo sticks, signs, a barbed wire bat, a laptop, an expensive camera; everything they could get their hands on they used on one another.

Masters: We’re still seeing the effects of the power going out to much of the staging and lighting. The stage just coming back on now. Shields said they were free to tear this stadium down, legitimately and they almost did that tonight. Just look at this mess.

(The camera pans to the glass, the thumbtacks and the blood stains in the ring before cutting back to Diamond Cage who stands on the top rope with one hand clutching his lower back and the other slightly raised over his head. Scott Diamond and Albert Hitchman exit the ring and make their way up the ramp while Cage continues to celebrate in the ring as the scene fades to black)

(The camera transitions backstage, showing Aren Mstislav in his locker room laying down and napping before his match slated for later on. Pierre McGuire stealthily walks into his room and admires the sight)

Pierre (whispering to himself): Ooooh, look at those rock-hard abs! Look at that beautiful EAW Championship! Those eyebrows, myyyy god! Aria Jaxon got himself a good one!

(Pierre McGuire catches his breath, stepping back for a moment before staring inquisitively at the middle of Aren Mstislav’s trunks)

Pierre: Maybe just one little touch…

(Pierre stops for a moment)

Pierre: I really shouldn’t, but wow, what a fine young man. Nice clean body. Such a stud. Oh, screw it! It’s times like these where I could really use the consultation of my BFF Angelo… If only he were here.

(Pierre McGuire quickly lunges in and attempts to touch the champ, but he recoils back as Aren yawns and wakes up, first checking out his title before looking back and staring at Pierre)

Aren: …

Pierre: Hiiiii.

(Pierre winks at Aren)

Aren: How long have you been here?

Pierre: Long enough.

Aren: What the hell did I tell you the last time you entered my locker room without asking?!

Pierre: I know, I know. Don’t come in without knocking. But there was a crack in your door, I wouldn’t want that nasty hooligan Carlos Rosso or that blubbery rotund Vic Vendetta coming in your locker room and attacking you while you were taking a much-needed rest before your Triple Threat later on… I was just trying to do you a favor.

Aren: Well, when you put it that way, I guess you have a point. Maybe I should reward you. Do you wanna touch…

(Pierre McGuire’s eyes widen in suspense, almost as if a little twinkle sparkled in them)

Aren: … My EAW Championship?

(Pierre has to adjust his suit and tie after getting overly excited. His expression transitioned after being on what felt like cloud nine before being brought back down to Earth)

Pierre: Ooooh… Yes, of course. Your EAW Championship. Why, I would love to.

(Aren scans Pierre suspiciously)

Aren: What were you expecting?!

Pierre: Nothing, nothing! I would love to touch your EAW Championship.

(Pierre attempts to cop a feel of the EAW Championship. He overzealously swoops in to hug it before Aren pulls it back and snaps at Pierre)

Aren: I didn’t say you could pretend you WERE the EAW Champion! I said you could touch it, not hug it and get all of your germs all over my title. It looked like you were sweating on it. Ugh, I’m gonna have to spend WEEKS cleaning this thing after I dominate Carlos Rosso and Vic Vendetta tonight. Just LOOK at what you did, Pierre. Get the hell out of my locker room.

(Aren pushes Pierre out of his locker room, slams the door, and locks it. Pierre remains right outside of his door…)

Pierre: One day, I’ll be able to touch it. He’ll be mine, i swear. I mean, it’ll be mine. Yes, yes… Of course. The EAW Title. That’s right.

(Pierre walks off disappointedly as the camera pans out to New Miami Stadium)

( The EAW Specialists Championship and EAW New Breed Championship graphic both appear on the screen as we get a high shot of the 81,000+ packed crowd of New Miami Stadium. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

RA: This following contest is a DIVIDE & CONQUER MATCH, FEATURING THE SPECIALISTS DIVISION AGAINST THE NEW BREED TITLE DIVISION!!! This contest will begin as an elimination style 5 on 5 match, and the remaining members of the winning division will battle in a multi-person ONE FALL match to decide the champion of their respective division!

(The stadium lights cut off, leaving a white screen on the titantrons, mini-trons and all LED screens as it the LED stage set up becomes like a movie screen. The following text begins to appear. )

“In the City of Glass, the conglomerate rules supreme. All regular citizens have been made willing slaves, lured into an endless race for status and wealth. But some choose to live off the grid. Runners work as couriers and cat burglars. The rooftops belong to them, as long as they don’t openly challenge the authorities, they turn a blind eye. For a long time, the status quo has held.”

“TIMES ARE ABOUT TO CHANGE!”

( In the form of animation, we see an animation of Haruna Sakazaki being chased by two men in lab outfits from the left side of the stage. Haruna is dressed in a black sleeveless shirt, short leather vest and white track pants, and she runs across the stage/screen until she’s chased to the other side of the set. The Haruna animation is backed into the corner, with the only way to go is off the top of the titantron edge. )

Haruna animation (Voice-over): I’d rather die standing than live on my knees.

(Haruna’s animation looks left and right. )

Haruna animation (Voice-over): You are wrong….. I’m not broken!

( Haruna dives from the top, and all of the arena lights are set on a pile of rubble at the far right side of the stage. Haruna Sakazaki, wearing similar attire as her animation with her “Enemy of the Vixens Division” shirt over it, crawls from out of the rubble as “Must Be Now” by NMB48 plays through the arena, and Haruna makes her entrance to the ring. )

RA: Introducing first… FROM AKIHABARA, JAPAAAAN… HAARRUUUUNAAAA SAAAKAAAAZAKIIIIII!!!

Masters: An interesting display the former Specialists Champion and self proclaimed “Enemy of the Vixens Division!”

Mercer: Haruna Sakazaki has pretty much alienated herself from the entire EAW Vixens division, proclaiming herself as its enemy, and she’s walking into this match at her second Pain for Pride appearance knowing that if she can lead her team to victory, it will have dealt a major blow in her fight against the division!

( “I Think Bad Thoughts” by Danko Jones hits as Venom rides out to the ring on an ATV, knocking back a bottle of guinness wearing dark shades and a cowboy hat on with his hair flowing in the wind. )

RA: HER TAG TEAM PARTNERS… FIRST, FROM ATLANTA, GEORGIA WEIGHING 225 POOUUNNNDSS…. VEEENOOOOOOOOM!!!!

Masters: Venom making his fourth Pain for Pride appearance, and boy has he become a public enemy of sorts??

Mercer: People can’t stand him Masters, he’s been pretty much ruthlessly trolling the Vixens division for the last number of weeks and it’s all for a shot at the New Breed title! If his team can work as a unit, and if his drunk ass manages not to get himself eliminated, he’ll get everything he wanted!

( A cloud of green smoke rises from the stage, and “Insane in the Brain” by Cypress Hill hit as Piff Fumador comes out and makes his entrance to the ring. )

RA: FROM TIJUANA, MEXICO WEIGHING IN AT 220 POOOOUNNDSS… PIIIIFF FFFUUUMAADDOOOOORRRR!!!

Masters: Another man who wants a New Breed title shot and makes a fairly decent case for it, being how he is the former NB Champion and has yet to get his rematch! And for all intents and purposes, Piff Fumador, Venom and Haruna all seem to be on pretty good terms.

Mercer: The chemistry’s definitely there, Masters.

( We see the camera zoom in on the titantron and you see a Lion open its mouth, you hear a big roar as the camera goes down the lion’s mouth and highlights begin to play of Lucas Johnson’s career so far…)

( Highlights of his NCAA career play, followed by Fighting Spirit 2 when Lucas was eliminated in the Open Fight Gauntlet, followed by the Pure Open Challenge against Carson then finally getting rewarded the Young Lions Cup and getting victories under his belt then finally getting the New Breed Championship match at Pain for Pride 9 and the camera rolls back out of the lions mouth and the titantron reads redemption… )

(“El Chapo” by The Game and Skrillex plays over the loudspeaker as Lucas Johnson is standing on a custom lion statue that is worth $15,000 and is also wearing a new wrestling tights that has LJ written on it and a breast cancer ribbon on both sides)

RA: HAILING FROM ATLANTA, GEORGIA AND WEIGHING 215 POOOUNNNDS, HE IS THE CURRENT YOUNG LIONS CUP HOLDER… LUUUUCAAAAAASS JOHHHNNSOOOOOOONNNN!!!

Mercer: The Young Lions Cup holder makes his Pain for Pride debut, and you can just tell he’s star struck, this has to be the biggest sea of humanity he’s ever personally witnessed! DRINK IT IN KID! THIS IS WHAT THE BRIGHT LIGHTS OF PAIN FOR PRIDE ARE ALL ABOUT!

( “Long Forgotten Sons” by Rise Against hits, and JJ Silva walks out to the ring with the New Breed Championship proudly around his waist as he raises both fists to the sky. )

RA: AND FROM LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY WEIGHING IN AT 245 POOOOUNNNDSSS… HE IS THE REIGNING EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIOOOOOONNN… JJJJJJJ!!! JJJJJJJJ!!! SIIIIILLLLVAAAAAAAAA!!!

( JJ Silva makes his way into the ring, and he stands with all four of his team mates, and gives them all weary looks. )

Mercer: Standing in this ring is a former Young Lions Cup holder, former Tag Team champion, former New Breed Champion, former Specialists Champion, CURRENT Young Lions cup holder, CURRENT New Breed Champion! This team is absolutely nothing to sneeze at folks! This could be a ROUGH NIGHT for the Vixens division!

( “Spinning Wheel” by Ryoma Takeuchi, Yu Inaba Aand Taiko Katono hits as Shinsei Domi walk out in matching robes and ring attire. )

RA: THEIR OPPONENTS… WEIGHING AT A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 256 POOOUNNDSS… THE TEAM OF “THE THUNDERING HEROINE” ERICA FORD, AND “THE QUEEN OF SUBMISSION” AZUMI GOTO.. SHHIIINNNNSEEEIIIIIIIIII DOOOOOMIIIIIIII!!!!

( As Shinsei Domi continue their way down the ramp, “Sick Like Me” by In This Moment hits as Stephanie Matsuda rushes out to the stage, soaking in the atmosphere of her first Pain for Pride, looking out into the crowd in shock and awe before continuing down the ramp. )

RA: THEIR PARTNERS, FIRST, FROM BROOKLYN, NEW YORK…. STEEEPHANIEEEEEEEE MMMMATSUDAAAAAAA!!!!

( Stephanie Matsuda continues her way down the ramp, and “Confident” by Demi Lovato comes on the loudspeakers. Cailin Dillon comes out through the curtain wearing her green, Ivy-theme attire. )

RA: NEXT UP, HAILING FROM DALLAS, TEXAS… CAAAAAIIILLLIIIIIIN DIILLLOOOOOOOONNNN!!!

( Cailin Dillon walks down the ramp, getting a look for herself at the massive crowd. )

( “Boss’ Daughter” by Pop Evil plays, and Tarah Nova proudly walks through the curtain holding up her EAW Specialists Championship while in Harley Quinn attire. )

RA: AND FINALLY, FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN….. SHE IS THE REIGNING EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPIOOOOOONNNN… TAARRRAAAAAAHHHHHH NOOOOVVAAAAAAA!!!

( Tarah and Cailin walk with arms linked, and the Specialists division team all make their way down to the ring, and enter the ring, take up the turnbuckles including Tarah who climbs to a turnbuckle and raises her EAW Specialists Championship to the audience. )

( “Boss’ Daughter” dies down, and all ten individuals in this match are in the ring as the referee sends the teams out to their respective corners, and they talk amongst themselves as to who will remain in the ring. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Masters: And so to begin this match it’ll be Cailin Dillon in the ring with Venom. Obviously it’s safe to say there’s no love loss between these two, not after every attempt Venom’s made to insult the Vixens division and the Vixens in it, including Cailin.

Venom (off-mic): HEY BLONDIE, WHY DON’T YOU GIVE OLE VENOM A KISS??

Mercer: It looks like Venom is trying to flirt with the former EAW Specialists Champion! But wait a minute, is she actually responding to it!?

( Venom continues to flirt with Cailin, and Cailin has a smile on her face. )

( Cailin makes the come hither motion, and a seduced Venom is drawn in as he walks over to her and puts an arm around Cailin’s waist. )

Mercer: VENOM IS HOLDING CAILIN IN HIS ARMS! TARAH AND THE REST OF HER TEAM ARE LOOKING ON IN SHOCK! VENOM AND CAILIN ARE ABOUT TO LOCK LIPS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!

Masters: BUT AT THE LAST SECOND, CAILIN GETS BEHIND VENOM AND ROLLS HIM UP BY THE TIGHTS!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Masters: ALMOST A THREE! VENOM KICKS OUT AND SCRAMBLES UP, BUT HE MEETS A FIELD GOAL KICK TO THE ARM BY CAILIN! A KICK TO THE CHEST! AND CAILIN DILLON FIRING OFF WITH KICKS INTO THE BODY OF VENOM AFTER SEDUCTIVELY LURING HIM INTO HER TRAP! Venom retreats over to the ropes, and Cailin comes firing off with a running knee to the chest! Venom stumbles away, Cailin reels him in, ATOMIC DROP! She turns Venom around, REVERSE ATOMIC DROP! LEG SWEEP FOLLOWING THAT, CAILIN OPENS THE LEGS OF HER OPPONENT AND HITS A DOUBLE LEG-DROP INTO THE GROIN! That sends Venom squealing and hollering, he sits up, CAILIN WITH THE ROUNDHOUSE TO THE FACE! That sends Venom rolling away desperately to his corner to tag in Piff Fumador!

Mercer: Piff enters the ring and charges at Cailin! DEEP ARMDRAG BY CAILIN DILLON, BUT PIFF CARTWHEELS OUT OF IT! CAILIN RUSHES UP, DROPKICK BY FUMADOR! Cailin recovers, ANOTHER DROPKICK! Now Piff runs the ropes and comes back with a RUNNING SWANTON! BUT THAT JUST HITS THE KNEES OF CAILIN DILLON, WHO’S REALLY STARTING THIS MATCH OFF WELL! Before Piff can even recover, Cailin sprints at him, hops over him and rushes to her team’s corner to tag in Stephanie Matsuda, and Cailin sprints back at Piff Fumador for the RUNNING DROPKICK! Piff’s rolling away, but as he scrambles back to a vertical base Cailin drops to her knees and STEPHANIE PROPELS OFF CAILINS BACK FOR THE STEP-OFF LEG LARIAT ONTO PIFF FUMADOR! And Matsuda with a cover!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!

Masters: Piff with the kick out this time, and Stephanie Matsuda who’s the legal woman clamps in a side headlock to wear Piff Fumador down before he has the chance to fully recover. Unfortunately for Steph Piff isn’t having too much trouble getting back to his feet, so Steph does an arm-trap twirl behind him and is going PERHAPS FOR THE CLOUD CITY!!! STRAIGHT JACKET GERMAN MIGHT BE ON IT’S WAY! NO PIFF COUNTERS WITH A FRONT WHEELBARROW PIN!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWWWWWWO-

Masters: Stephanie with the kick out. Both competitors racing to their feet, but this time Stephanie cuts Piff off with a spin kick to the midsection, and takes him by the arm over to her corner — but Piff yanks Stephanie back to the mat and hits a HEAD-SCISSORS DRIVER! And that sends Matsuda rolling out of the ring, just for Piff to spring up to his feet and wait for her to recover… and PIFF FUMADOR HITS A SPRINGBOARD CORKSCREW CROSSBODY TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!! Matsuda’s teammates will her on, and the official orders Piff to get Steph back into the ring as Piff hi-fives Venom at ringside! Piff and Venom drag Steph Matsuda back in, and Piff immediately climbs to the top turnbuckle and stands over his opponent, Steph, who’s barely responsive following that hurricanrana… and PIFF LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOING FOR THE 420 SPLASH!!!! ANDDDDDDDD GOT IT!!!

Mercer: NO, MATSUDA EVASIVELY DODGES IT, AND PIFF LANDS ON HIS FEET AS MATSUDA RUSHES TO THE CORNER TO TAG IN AZUMI! AZUMI SPRINGS OVER THE ROPES, INTO THE RING, PIFF GRABS HER AND GOES FOR THE SIDEWALK SLAM! BUT AZUMI COUNTERS WITH A CRUCIFIX BODY-SCISSORS INTO THE SUNDAY LOCK V2!!! SEATED FUJIWARA ARMBAR!!!! THE QUEEN OF SUBMISSION HAS THAT PERFECTLY APPLIED! PIFF IS DEAD IN THE WATER! AND PIFF TAPS OUT!

( DING! DING! DING! )

RA: Piff Fumador is eliminated!

Masters: AZUMI GOTO’S TAKEN PIFF OUT OF THE MATCH UP, AND SHE’S NOT LETTING GO… BUT IN COMES HARUNA SAKAZAKI WITH A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Haruna will be the legal woman in this match, and Haruna’s dragging Azumi off of her opponent now and hovering over her to deliver a flurry of forearms to the face! Haruna’s up to her feet, and she’s just stomping all over her opponent with those vicious boots right into any open part of the body! Haruna pulls Azumi up by an arm and takes her over to the corner, and tags in the EAW New Breed Champion JJ Silva! Haruna feeds Azumi into Silva, and Silva hits the BACK SUPLEX INTO THE BACKBREAKER! AZUMI LAID OUT OVER THE KNEE OF SILVA, AND HARUNA COMES FIRING OFF THE ROPES WITH A SPRINGBOARD KNEE DROP FROM THE APRON! THAT PUTS AZUMI DOWN! Silva with the lateral press!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWW-

Mercer: Kick out by Azumi Goto! That’s a tough young woman that Azumi, but she’s in the ring with the EAW New Breed Champion! Silva’s not giving Azumi much room to breathe, he hits a precise elbow drop to the back of the head, and follows up with a an elbow to the spine! Another elbow drop! A THIRD! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! AND THERE’S A KNEE TO THE RIBS, SENDING AZUMI ROLLING AWAY! Azumi looks to make the tag out to her corner, but JJ Silva grabs ahold of the boot of Azumi to pull her back in — ENZUIGURI! NO, SILVA CATCHES THAT ONCOMING LEG, AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE MIGHT BE GOING FOR A SHARPSHOOTER! BUT AZUMI MANAGES TO REEL HIM IN FOR A SMALL PACKAGE CRADLE!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWOOOOOOOOO–

Masters: Kick out by Silva! The two scramble up, but IT’S SILVA WHO TAKES AZUMI DOWN WITH A SINGLE-LEGGED DROPKICK! Azumi’s not in the best spot right now, and Silva drags Azumi Goto over to his corner by a boot, and tags Haruna Sakazaki back in! Now it’s Haruna who climbs up to the top turnbuckle while JJ lifts Azumi up on his shoulders in an electric chair drop position… and HARUNA FLIES OFF THE TOP WITH A CORKSCREW DROPKICK, KNOCKING AZUMI OFF SILVA’S SHOULDERS AND CRASHING INTO THE CANVAS ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD! HARUNA WITH THE COVER!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Mercer: KICK OUT by Azumi Goto! Haruna hit a brilliant corkscrew missile dropkick, you actually don’t see too many of those, especially from the top rope! Haruna’s looking out at the crowd of 80,000 people and screams something in Japanese, but whatever it is these fans aren’t liking it! Haruna walks back over to Azumi and literally STEPS ON AZUMIS FACE, AND STANDS ON HER HEAD, FORCING A REF COUNT! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! AND HARUNA JUMPS UP AND DOWN ON AZUMI’S HEAD MY GOODNESS!!! Haruna drags Goto back up and is going over to the corner with a vertical suplex in mind… but AZUMI CUTS HER OFF WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! SPIN KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! VENOM’S COMING OVER TO ASSIST ON THE APRON, BUT AZUMI HITS A SPRINGBOARD TRIANGLE DROPKICK TO KNOCK VENOM OFF! Haruna’s coming right back at Azumi, but AZUMI REDIRECTS HARUNA’S MOMENTUM TO THE ROPES AS AZUMI SENDS HER OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND CRASHING DOWN AT RINGSIDE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP!

Masters: AND AZUMI GETS THE TAG TO ERICA FORD! ERICA FORD STEPS ON THE APRON RIGHT WHERE HARUNA IS RECOVERING, AND AZUMI GOTO RUNS THE RING ROPES AND SPRINTS TOWARDS ERICA FORD… BUT VENOM IS CHASING AFTER HER!

FORD SPRINGS BACK UP, AZUMI AND HARUNA BOTH RECOVER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP, AND FORD RUNS THE ROPES NOW AND SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING TO GO UP AND OVER AND TAKE HARUNA BACK DOWN WITH THE CORKSCREW MOONSAULT OVER THE ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE!!! SHINSEI DOMI BRINGING THE PAIN TO HARUNA!

( Replay shows the simultaneous suicide dive to the outside from Azumi and the springboard hurricanrana from Erica Ford, as well as the corkscrew moonsault to the outside by Erica. )

Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Mercer: Azumi and Erica both bring Haruna back into the ring, and while both ladies hype up this crowd, Haruna desperately scrambles over to the corner! Shinsei Domi enter the ring, but Haruna makes the hot tag to Lucas Johnson and rolls out of the ring! The Young Lions Cup holder enters the match, AZUMI COMES AFTER HIM! GERMAN SUPLEX BY LUCAS!!! ERICA FORD COMES AFTER LUCAS FOR A RUNNING HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN, BUT LUCAS MUSCLES HER UP AND TWISTS HER AROUND INTO A WAIST LOCK, JUST TO HIT A BELLY TO BELLY OVERHEAD RELEASE SUPLEX!!! AZUMI BACK UP! ANOTHER BELLY TO BELLY, THIS TIME SENDING AZUMI GOTO ROLLING OUT OF THE RING!!! Lucas Johnson coming in like a house of fire, and Ford recovers as Lucas grabs her from behind and goes for ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! NOT THIS TIME! FORD LANDS ON HER FEET FROM BEHIND, AND GOES FOR THE ROLL UP! BUT NOT EVEN A ONE COUNT, LUCAS ROLLS BACKWARDS OUT OF IT, SPINNERS AROUND THE BACK AND GATOR ROLLS UP TO HIS FEET TO PLANT A VERTICAL SUPLEX! SICK COUNTER BY LUCAS, WHO ROLLS THROUGH THE SUPLEX AND HITS A SECOND VERTICAL IN SUCCESSION! Lucas rolls through that vertical as well and right back up to his feet… and he rushes to the ropes and HITS A REVERSE SUPLEX, DROPPING ERICA RIBS FIRST OVER THAT STIFF TOP RING ROPE, HANGING HER UP TO DRY!

Masters: Lucas Johnson is striking a pose to the sea of humanity before him, not sure if that’s smart, especially since he’s hung Erica to dry near her partners! And look at this, Tarah Nova makes the tag! The Specialists Champion enters the match, and she rushes at Lucas Johnson as LUCAS GOES FOR A LARIAT! TARAH CUTS HIM OFF WITH A JUMPING KNEE TO THE CHEST! SIDE KICK TO THE KNEE, BRINGING HIM DOWN TO A KNEE, AND FINISHES HIM WITH THE CRAZED DAZE SUPERKICK!!! BOOT SMACKS RIGHT ONTO THE JAW, AND A COVER!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Mercer: Lucas Johnson powers out of it! Tarah Nova is soaking in the energy of New Miami Stadium as she waits for Lucas to pull himself up — A RUNNING EPIC KICK!!! EPIC BIG BOOT TO THE FACE SENDS LUCAS ROLLING AWAY, AND HE TAGS VENOM INTO THE MATCH! Venom comes in the ring, and he circles the ring with Tarah Nova with a shit eating grin on his face before going for the collar & elbow tie up! The two of them jock for position, but Venom gets behind her with the standing switch and does a waistlock bodyslam bringing Tarah down to the mat… and VENOM BLATANTLY STARTS DRY HUMPING TARAH!! WHAT THE HELL???

Masters: Tarah scrambles to the corner terrified, and Venom starts shaking his crotch at her screaming “WHO’S YOUR DADDY!?” before rushing back over to the corner and hitting a CORNER SPEAR INTO HER MIDSECTION! Tarah’s doubled over in pain, and VENOM PUTS TARAH’S FACE IN HIS CROTCH! WHAT A DISRESPECTFUL, DISGUSTING ACT FROM VENOM! HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN THIS!

Mercer: Venom straightens Tarah up and leans her back on the corner before climbing that corner, mounted over Tarah… AND IT LOOKS LIKE VENOM IS TEABAGGING TARAH WHILE STANDING ON THE TURNBUCKLE! AND HARUNA FETCHES VENOM A BEER, AS VENOM TEABAGS TARAH AT THE CORNER WHILE KNOCKING BACK A COLD ONE! VENOM IS LIVING THE AMERICAN DREAM! — BUT OH! DREAM TURNS INTO A NIGHTMARE AS TARAH COUNTERS, POPPING VENOM UP AND VENOM LANDS GROIN FIRST ON THE STEEL RINGPOST!!! VENOM’S GRAPEFRUITS CRASH RIGHT INTO THE COLD, ROLLED STEEL!

RA: Venom has been eliminated!

Masters: GOOD. RIDDANCE.

Mercer: Poor Venom! Not only did his jewels get jacked, but his chances at a New Breed title shot as well! All he wanted was a title shot!

Masters: Tarah Nova walks over to Cailin Dillon as the two smile and share some dialogue, but as Tarah turns around STEPH MATSUDA TAGS HERSELF IN. Steph with an aggressive smack on Tarah’s arm tags herself into this match and enters the ring, while Haruna Sakazaki returns to the ring as well… but Tarah turns Steph around and gets into her face! These two are screaming at each other, and if you’ve been following EAW programming you know there is no love loss between Tarah Nova and Stephanie Matsuda! Cailin Dillon enters the ring to try to break the two up, and the referee gets in between the heated confrontation as well… And now it looks like CAILIN AND STEPHANIE ARE ARGUING NOW!

Stephanie Matsuda (off-mic): YOU’RE GONNA TAKE HER SIDE JUST LIKE YOU ALWAYS DO RIGHT!?

Masters: This spat is starting to get out of control! All the while, Haruna Sakazaki is in the ring as their legal opponent! Stephanie has no idea, Stephanie turns around and SHE’S MET WITH A LAPIS LAZULI!!! JUMPING CORKSCREW ROUNDHOUSE!!!! THAT TAKES MATSUDA DOWN, AND HARUNA WITH THE HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Mercer: STEPH MATSUDA MANAGES A KICK OUT! DAMN! Matsuda showing a lot of willpower to kick out of that… it looks like she’s been busted open too! Some blood goes trickling down her forehead, and Haruna’s busy complaining to the official about the lack of a three count. She must have thought it were three, and quite frankly it’s not surprising, that was a hard shot! Nonetheless Matsuda is starting to come-to, and she’s wiping blood from her forehead and is looking at it on her hands… and what?? Something… something’s changed! Something’s changed in Matsuda’s eyes! She looks… bitter! Haruna comes right back at Steph and hits a BRUTAL FOREARM.. BUT STEPH FIRES BACK WITH A STRAIGHT UP PUNCH! STIFF SHOT! HARUNA COMES RIGHT BACK WITH A HEADBUTT! BUT MATSUDA’S HARDLY RATTLED, SHE CONNECTS ANOTHER RIGHT HAND! AND ANOTHER! HARUNA WITH A RIGHT! MATSUDA! HARUNA! THESE TWO VIXENS WITH A STORIED PAST, STORIED RIVALRY ARE JUST THROWING BOMBS AT EACH OTHER! BUT OH!!! STEPH TAGS HER ON THE JAW, THAT KNOCKED HARUNA SILLY! AND STEPH FOLLOWS UP WITH A SPINNING BACKHAND, AND TWISTS BACK INTO A STIFF ARMED LARIAT DROPPING HARUNA ONTO THE BACK OF HER HEAD! STEPH HOOKS HARUNA’S LEGS IN THE AIR!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Masters: ONLY A TWO COUNT! Haruna with the shoulder up! I can’t believe Steph was able to come back from a move like the Lapis Lazuli and deliver this kind of offense! Steph is still bleeding following that shot, and she’s bleeding more and more profusely after that back and forth with Haruna. Haruna rolls out of the ring right near us, and Matsuda exits the ring with a straight up scowl on her face! Matsuda drags Haruna up… and BOUNCES HER FACE OFF OF THE HOOD OF OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE, BEFORE SENDING HER BACK IN THE RING! AND MATSUDA GOES OVER TO THE TIMEKEEPER AND IS GRABBING AHOLD OF A STEEL CHAIR! FOLKS, THERE IS DISQUALIFICATION AND COUNT OUTS SET IN THIS MATCH, SO I’M NOT SURE WHY CLOUD WOULD DO THIS?

Mercer: Lucas Johnson and JJ Silva are looking on, but they don’t even know whether to intervene or not! That is an armed and deadly woman they’re eyeballing, and that woman’s just re-entered the ring and is HOVERING OVER HARUNA WITH A CHAIR! CAILIN ENTERS THE RING AND IS PLEADING TO STEPH NOT TO DO THIS! — WHAT!?!? STEPHANIE CRACKS THE CHAIR OVER CAILIN’S SKULL!!!!!

( The official calls for the bell. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

RA: Stephanie Matsuda has been disqualified and eliminated!

Mercer: TARAH NOVA CHARGES INTO THE RING — CHAIR SHOT TO THE MIDSECTION, AND ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT OVER THE SPINE!! TARAH AND CAILIN ARE DOWN! JJ SILVA AND LUCAS JOHNSON ARE LAUGHING THEIR ASSES OFF ON THE APRON! AND STEPHANIE MATSUDA IS CONFRONTED BY SHINSEI DOMI! SHE SPIKES THE CHAIR INTO FORD’S MIDESCTION, AND SWINGS THE CHAIR INTO THE SIDE OF AZUMI GOTO’S HEAD!!! THEYRE BOTH OUT!!!

Masters: WHAT THE HELL HAS GOTTEN INTO HER!?

( Azumi, Tarah and Cailin roll out of the ring and Erica Ford is still stunned in the ring. )

Mercer: THE REF TRIES TO INTERVENE, BUT HE JUST NARROWLY MISSES A CHAIRSHOT FROM STEPHANIE MATSUDA! STEPH TURNS BACK TO HARUNA, WHO’S JUST GETTING UP TO HER FEET, AND STEPH THROWS THE CHAIR AT HER! HARUNA CATCHES IT — ROOM 13 INTO THE CHAIR!!!! ROOM 13 INTO THE CHAIR BY STEPHANIE MATSUDA!!!! STEPH HITS THE VICIOUS RUNNING BIG BOOT!!! STEPHANIE DRAGS ERICA FORD, THE ONLY VIXEN AVAILABLE IN THE RING, OVER HARUNA’S BODY, AND MORE OFFICIALS ENTER THE RING AND FORCIBLY ESCORT STEPHANIE MATSUDA OUT!

( Stephanie Matsuda tries wrestling out of the grasp of the officials, but they manage to drag her out of the ring and escort her up the ramp )

Masters: STEPHANIE MATSUDA HAS JUST BETRAYED HER TEAM!! BUT THE OFFICIAL MAKES THE PIN, ERICA IS STILL LAID OUT OVER HARUNA, SO HE’LL HAVE TO COUNT IT!

JJ Silva and Lucas Johnson, though potential future opponents, are both in high spirits and on good terms knowing that they’ve got a team win practically in the bag! Cailin, Tarah and Azumi are still recovering at ringside, but Lucas Johnson runs over to Azumi Goto to send her back in the ring. JJ Silva circles Azumi like a predator, knowing Azumi’s far from 100% and he drags her up from behind and is GOING FOR THE CODE OF SILVA AGAIN!!!! PLANTED!!! AND NOW LUCAS JOHNSON GETS TAGGED IN, AND LUCAS DRAGS AZUMI UP FROM THE MAT AND HITS THE PUMPHANDLE POWERBOMB!!! THERE’S THE PIN!

IN MIDAIR, CAILIN COUNTERS WITH THE ARM-SCISSORS TAKEDOWN AND APPLIES THE LONGHORN LOCK!!!! OMOPLATA SHOULDER LOCK APPLIED, AND LUCAS JOHNSON’S BEEN CAUGHT IN A STICKY SITUATION!

JJ SILVA IS SAVING HIS PARTNER’S SKIN, AND THE OFFICIAL IS GETTING INTO A SPAT WITH JJ SILVA, THREATENING DISQUALIFICATION! CAILIN DILLON RELEASES THE HOLD, AND YOU CAN TELL SHE PUT ALL SHE HAD INTO IT, BUT THE REFEREE WASN’T EVEN THERE TO SEE THE SUBMISSION! Cailin isn’t sure what’s going on, but she looks over and see’s JJ complaining to the referee, and the official re-enters the ring. Cailin is protesting, telling the referee how she had Lucas beat, OH!!! FROM RINGSIDE!!! TARAH HITS AN UPPERCUT TO THE GROIN FROM BEHIND, BRINGING JJ SILVA COLLAPSING TO THE FLOOR IN SHOCK AND PAIN! THE REF DIDN’T SEE IT!

Mercer: THAT SHOULD BE A DISQUALIFICATION!!!

Masters: THE REF HAD NO IDEA — OH MY GOODNESS, LUCAS SNATCHES CAILIN BY THE ARM AND IS GOING FOR THE KIMURA LOCK!! BUT CAILIN HOLDS HER GROUND, AND SHE MANAGES TO HIT A FLURRY OF KNEES TO THE MIDS BEFORE PULLING HIM IN AND HITTING THE TEXAS TWISTER!!!!!! THERE’S THE COVER!

The caveat? if he can survive this, the match is over for him, and he leaves smelling like roses without even having to defend his title! Unfortunately for him, he’s got two of the best competitors in EAW to go through, and he’s currently on the ring apron barely functional! Tarah Nova enters the ring and she and Cailin exchange looks before going over to JJ Silva’s corner… Tarah and Cailin climb both sides of that top turnbuckle, and THEY DEADLIFT JJ UP! WHAT ARE THEY THINKING???? OHHHHHH!!! TAG TEAM DEADLIFT SUPERPLEX FROM CAILIN AND TARAH!!! A THUNDEROUS WORK OF DOUBLETEAM, AND LOOK AT THAT, THEY ROLL RIGHT BACK TO THEIR FEET WITH JJ STILL HOOKED!

( Cailin and Tarah exchange looks )

Mercer: These two ladies are weary and battle tested, but they have one thing standing in their way of victory — and that’s each other! Cailin and Tarah give a quick hand shake and now slowly circle the ring, and they close in and immediately Cailin gets Tarah in a headlock! It’s been a long night for the both of them, and it’s not going to take much from one perspective to finish this match, but when you’re as battle tested and weary as these two even a few minutes are an eternity! Tarah sends a few shots into the spine of Cailin before pushing her out from behind! Cailin turns around and rushes back at Tarah — DROPKICK! Cailin recovers, ANOTHER DROPKICK BY TARAH! Tarah races to her feet before Cailin and she goes for a running neckbreaker! But Cailin catches her with the roll up from behind!

Cailin’s head bounces off the turnbuckle, she turns around, and SHE’S MET WITH A CORNER CROSSBODY BY TARAH NOVA! Cailin crawls over to the center of the ring holding her aching ribs after that move, and Tarah seamlessly glides to the apron and rushes to the top rope… and THERE’S A HILO FROM THE TOP BY TARAH NOVA TO TAKE CAILIN DOWN!!! A COVER!

ReF: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOO–

Tarah immediately scrambles to the ropes, and drops to one knee, waiting for Cailin to get in the right position… AND TARAH TAKES OFF WITH ANOTHER RUDE AWAKENING CURB STOMP!!!! NO, IT’S DODGED BY CAILIN, AND CAILIN HITS A FRONT-ROLLING RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP, CAILIN SPRINTS TO THE ROPES IN FRONT OF HER AND COMES BACK WITH A VICIOUS LOW DROPKICK ON A SEATED TARAH NOVA! AND NOW CAILIN ROLLS TO THE RING APRON AND HAS A FIRM GRASP ON THE RING ROPES, WAITING, STALKING…. SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH BY CAILIN DILLON!!!! OHHHH BRILLIANTLY EXECUTED!!!

Masters: IN A BRILLIANT SHOWING, TARAH NOVA MANAGES TO SECURE THE LAST DITCH VICTORY AND RETAIN THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION!

( Replays of the events that took place in the match are shown )

Mercer: I’ve really got to hand it to both these two ladies! They endured so much in this match! First they were just brutally assaulted by Stephanie Matsuda who absolutely snapped and assaulted her own team with a steel chair! Then they basically had to battle back from JJ Silva and Lucas Johnson’s onslaught, and finally Tarah Nova was able to just get the edge on Cailin and retain her Specialists Championship!

( Replays end, and back in the ring Cailin Dillon and Tarah Nova share a hug while Tarah Nova holds up the Specialists Championship in celebration, despite both ladies being exhausted )

Masters: A feel good moment between two friends who put all they had into this match! And once again we find Tarah Nova beating the odds on the grandest stage of them all!

(The camera pans backstage, where an Max A. Million is rushing down a hall.)

Max. A Million: Guys, I’m going to attempt to get a word with Jaywalker!

(He rushes down the hall some more, seeing Jaywalker standing there, drinking a bottle of water, he walks up to him.)

Max A. Million: Jay! Jaywalker!

(Jaywalker gives Max A. Million a very cold stare, swiping the microphone from his hands.)

Jaywalker: What, Max, WHAT?! You want my intellect input on how I EASILY defeated that false king out there? No, Max, I have only these words to share with you. That should have been the Jaywalker at Pain for Pride 8, that should have been the Jaywalker at House of Glass, that should have been the Jaywalker that competed in the Elimination Chamber, that should have been the Jaywalker competing for the Hall of Fame Championship but noooo! “Jaywalker, you have to make this talent look good! Jaywalker you have to make everyone look good!” It’s always this, that, and another. “Jay, lose to him! Jay lose to that guy!” WELL YOU KNOW WHAT? I’M TIRED OF LOSING. AND I’M DONE WITH HAVING TO PUT UP WITH THESE SELFISH EMPLOYEES AND THIS GOOD FOR NOTHING BOARD. Everyone wants something big, right? Some greasy spaghetti hair chump, who couldn’t even hang with Mr. DEDEDE like I did at Pain for Pride 2, only wanted to involve himself, because he thought it was so great getting a fast one over me! Or that Marvel wannabe punk, who dreamed of defeating the almighty Jaywalker! Or maybe that ignorant scumbag, who only wanted a best of three with me to get ANOTHER win! He really wanted that Hall of Fame Championship, didn’t he? But I heard there were riots when I DESTROYED him in the chamber! I scared him right out of “his woods”! Have you caught my drift, Max? I’m betting right now, as I speak these dangerous words, people are talking behind my back, trying to defend themselves, giving me snarky comments. “Oh, Jaywalker, you’ve been here for years, it’s their turn to shine!”, “This didn’t happen!”, “Is he really saying this?!” WANT, WANT WANT, BUT NEVER GIVE, GIVE GIVE… that’s the status of Elite Answers Wrestling. And yeah, I’m saying this, because this is all me. Not some script, all improvised words spoken from the heart. SO MARK. MY. WORDS. I will NEVER, EVER, lose another match from here on out. EVER. Not to some up and coming fresh talent, not to some selfish veteran, not to ANYONE. IF YOU WANT TO BEAT ME, YOU’RE BETTER OFF KILLING ME… SO, GOOD LUCK DOING THAT.

(Jaywalker throws the microphone violently to the ground, shoving Max away — leaving him speechless, as the camera fades elsewhere.)

(Camera transitions back into the arena, panning around thousands of screaming fans.)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! And is for….THE EAW PURE CHAMPIONSHIIIPPPPPPP!!!!!!!

(The entire arena suddenly turns dark except for a single spotlight shining on the stage. As we get close to that spotlight, we see that next to it is the band A Day to Remember, ready to play as they prep themselves.)

(Suddenly the part of the stage underneath the spotlight begins to open up, leaving a hole in the center. An ominous sound is heard and smoke begins to fill the arena as we begin to notice something rising. A figure is starting to show and his head is down. The platform raises fully and we see it it Starr Stan dressed in a Cyborg suit with mechanical armor and an electronic eye.)

“FIGHT!”

(With that word from the band’, “2nd Sucks” by A Day to Remember begins to play and Starr looks up with red white and blue pyro blasting beside him. As it finishes, he heads down the ramp and once he reaches the bottom he is met by a crew of people who run out and quickly disassemble the suit. With it gone, his American themed singlet is revealed and he slides in the ring, gritting his teeth to show his mouthpiece which reads the word “Elite.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Weighing in at 240 pounds! He is Professional Wrestling’s ONLY Olympic Gold Medalist…….STAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRR STANNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!

WWEFan: Starr Stan with an emphatic entrance tonight as he gets ready for his last match EVER. I never thought I would see the day honestly. We’ve watched this man entertain us since the very first Pain For Pride. We’ve been with him from tag titles to the Elite title, to the Answers World Championship! From teams like Starrpact to Team Starr to Team Elite! This guy has done everything there is to do in this business and has given us so many incredible moments, it’s insane!

Kawajai: The moments he’s best known for giving us have been the ones at this very event! Every match on the grand stage of Pain For Pride featuring this man has been nothing less than classic! This time he has more reason than ever to deliver, this is his final chance to do so after all and it even means that much more with how personal it has gotten with Carson! This is his chance to show him how it is done!

(Starr Stan looks around the arena, soaking it all in as he gets ready to wrestle for the final time. He stares down at the ramp, prepared for anything.)

“I. Am. Ironman.”

(The intro to “Iron Man” by Black Sabbath plays as 4 black Iron suit crops are seen standing on the stage – a space separating the two pairs – and each one having a scribbled letter on them from the word “pure” from left to right respectively.)

(A helicopter can be seen flying in the sky, bearing a moderately large crate with Stark Industries imprinted on it. The helicopter ceases movement right above the center space between the crops.)

“Nobody wants him. He just stares at the world.”

(The helicopter then proceeds to lower the crate slowly down the space on the stage, fitting it perfectly in the middle of the iron suits.)

“Planning his vengeance that he will soon unfold….”

(On cue, a man in the iron man suit emerges from the crate with force; blue light radiating from his mask and all the iron man goodies. The man in the Iron Suit would then walk a couple of feet down the ramp.)

“Now the time is here for Iron Man to spread fear…”

(The man stops as smoke fills the ramp, tapping the lit fuse in his chest to pop open the suit in half.)

“I can almost taste it….”

(“Almost Famous” by Eminem starts playing instead as out emerges Carson Ramsay with his title around his waist as he continues his way to the ring.)

Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Batman, Turkey, now residing in Boulder City, Nevada! Weighing in at 230 pounds! HE IS THE EAW PURE CHAMPIIIOOONNNNN……”THE MAN WITH THE SILVER SWING”……..CARSONNNNNNNN RAMSAAAAAYYYYY!!!!

WWEFan: That was definitely one of the most unique entrances I have seen at ANY Pain For Pride in our nine years of the event and it’s only fitting for not just one of our most unique Champions, but most unique Elitists in the company! Perhaps that wasn’t the only reason why it fit honestly, he certainly could be considered the Iron Man of EAW and I’m not talking the superhero, I mean the guy can go for as long as need be! That tank of his is almost never on empty and that type of energy is what he’ll need in order to combat Starr!

Kawajai: I don’t think that’s what Starr is expecting though! The way he sees it, ever since Carson Ramsay won the Pure Championship he has gotten lazy in that ring! Carson will disagree with that hugely as he himself believes that he has been nothing but a fighting champion, something I agree with honestly. I think we found another way for how these spectacles have been both fitting. Starr Stan a cyborg, Carson Ramsay as Iron Man…both of these men are wrestling machines and tonight they shall clash for the first time and the ONLY time.

(Carson Ramsay is hesitant as he hands over the Pure Championship to the referee and watches it be raised up high in the air. Starr Stan is pacing himself as his demeanor appears to be restrained, perhaps even nervous. Meanwhile Carson is banging those taped fists of his together as the official passes the belt over to the timekeeper’s area and signals for the bell.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: Here we go, the bell has rung and thus…Starr Stan’s final match has officially begun. Starr Stan is staring a hole into Carson Ramsay right now as Carson Ramsay remains nonchalant, being the first to go on the approach. He has his hands balled up in fists but the referee right away stops him and reminds him that this is a Pure contest! Ramsay eases up now as Starr Stan raises his hand high up into the air, looking for a test of strength! Carson accepts it and soon the other hand goes up as the two are now engaged in a knuckle lock! Carson appears to be struggling at first but then goes for a knee to the abdomen while Starr is open! Starr blocks it as he tenses up but now that sets him up for a transition by Carson into a head lock! Carson seems to be rather smug right now as he feels as if he has outwrestled Starr so far!

Kawajai: That might not be the case though as Starr Stan gets him in a waist lock and then shoves him into the corner as hard as he possibly can! He lifts Carson up and Carson goes down into the mat hard as he is feeling his ribs from that overhead takedown! Starr keeps his grip on Carson and uses it to force him up! The two are engaged in a struggle now as Carson is fighting back and trying to pull up on Starr’s arms to break it but Starr keeps pushing him across the ring; forcing him up against the ropes as now the official must call for a rope break! One! Two! Three! Four! Starr Stan backs away before the count of five but not before giving Carson a quick smack across the face and a smirk! OH! CARSON SPITS HIS GUM RIGHT IN STARR’S FACE AS RESPONSE AND STARR GOES TO CHARGE HIM!

WWEFan: The referee holds Starr Stan back as Carson is egging him on from behind! The referee remains between the two but it only ends up hindering Starr as Carson goes on the approach and delivers a knife edge chop while he is held back! Starr Stan backs away and the referee gets the hell out of dodge as Carson continues with the series of chops until Starr Stan finally catches one and has him by the wrist! He pulls him in! Short arm clothesline! He maintains his grip on Carson’s wrist and pulls him up to his feet so he can grab him for a belly to belly suplex! Carson shoots up from the whiplash before going back down on the ground in a daze! Starr Stan dives on top of him, crushing his chest as he then hooks the leg for a cover!

Referee: ONEEEEEEE…..TWOOOOOOOOOOO……KICKOUT!!!!!!!

Kawajai: Carson has enough awareness to take his hand and literally push Starr up off of him as Starr Stan looks down on him amused! He roughly jerks Carson up by the neck and then SLAMS his head into the turnbuckle! Starr Stan backs away and goes to charge but Carson moves out of the way, leaving him to crash and burn! Starr Stan is momentarily stunned in the corner as Carson turns around and runs to the corner opposite of him….before making a mad dash right out of it and aiming for a forearm! NO! Starr gets the foot up and nails Carson in the jaw! Carson backs up and Starr climbs up the ropes! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT DELIVERED!

WWEFan: Starr Stan leans in and starts to shake Carson about, shouting at him! He still is looking for retaliation over that disrespectful tactic by Carson as he drags him off by the shirt to the point that I think it is going to be torn off! The referee admonishes him for it and Starr Stan leaves him on the mat. JUST TO DEADLIFT HIM UP! AMERICAN SUPLEX AS CARSON GOES FLYING ACROSS THE RING AND SKIDS RIGHT ON HIS NECK! GOD! Carson Ramsay is huddled up in the corner, his arms and legs hanging over the apron — as Starr Stan hits him with a dropkick that shoots his stomach right into the steel ring post! Carson falls out of the ring and is gasping for air, the guy can’t even breathe after that!

Kawajai: Starr Stan rolls out with him onto the apron as he watches over Carson, seeing him rise to his feet while he’s hurting! Starr Stan sees him get on all fours and goes to grab him but wait! Carson sees it as his chance and sweeps the legs! The lower back of Starr goes right across the hard part of the apron! Carson then yanks him in! SCOOP SLAM DIRECTLY INTO THAT STEEL BARRICADE AS IT GETS PUSHED IN FROM THE IMPACT! Carson rolls onto his back and looks up into the sky, finally able to breathe thanks to this break that move has given him! Carson can not afford to rest though and he knows that as he quickly gets back up onto his feet and picks Starr up! Back into the ring he goes!

WWEFan: Yeah, he’s rolled Starr in but he seems to be waiting a bit himself! He’s going around ringside in fact and is walking up the steel steps! He’s scaling up to the top rope as he perches himself up there! He’s angled behind Starr as he is none the wiser of where he is! Carson calls for his attention! Starr Stan turns around and is greeted by Carson! He doesn’t have time to react as CARSON RAMSAY DELIVERS AN ELBOW DROP TO A STANDING STARR STAN! As Carson goes down and is on top of him, he places his forearm across Starr’s face and then hooks the leg for a pin attempt!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEE…..TWOOOOOOOOO……..

Kawajai: HEY! STARR STAN PULLS HIM IN FOR A CRUCIFIX PIN BY SURPRISE!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE….TWOOOOOOOO……THRRRRR —

WWEFan: Carson Ramsay powered out, he almost lost there due to that pin and it was because of him letting up on that cover, he got to confident around the two count and it almost cost him! Starr is a veteran of the game, you can’t give him a break like that! The two scramble to their feet as they meet up in the center of the ring! Starr Stan goes on the offensive but Carson Ramsay just pushes him away! Starr Stan comes back to him and leaps up onto his shoulders! FRANKENSTEINER! Starr Stan is now on top of Carson and rains down on him with forearm shots to the face! Starr Stan is just pulverising Carson right now as there are visible marks beginning to show on the kid’s face! Carson starts to kick up and soon is able to dismount Starr Stan off of him! It’s a race to their feet again!

Kawajai: Carson Ramsay wins the race and delivers a high knee! Starr is at first taken aback but it seems the move served to wake him up as he responds with a heel kick to the abs, kneeling him over! Carson is stunned and backs away but gets back to a vertical base and nails Starr with a big boot! Starr is still on his feet, looking to respond somehow but he can’t as Carson pulls him in! WOAH! Starr Stan surprises him as he counters by turning him over for a snapmare and then putting him in a side headlock! Carson immediately starts squirming around as he wants no part of this, getting to a knee as Starr rises with him and keeps up the hold! Finally Carson manages to slide out as he is behind Starr! He’s looking to push him into the ropes and fall back for a roll up!

WWEFan: Starr Stan switches it around on him though! AMERICAN SUPLEX! Starr Stan didn’t release though, he’s holding his grip this time! He brings Carson up with him… ANOTHER American! Starr Stan STILL keeps it! It seems he is building to the Elite Four as he brings Carson up once again and delivers his third American suplex in a row! He’s not done either, he still needs to complete the series! Starr Stan brings him up with all of his might as Starr is trying to weigh himself down to stay grounded! Starr Stan finally brings him up! ELITE FOUR ATTEMPTED BUT CARSON ESCAPES IT RIGHT BEFORE HE IS DROPPED DOWN! Carson is back on his feet and turns to face Starr!

Kawajai: A SUPLEX OF HIS OWN! Carson Ramsay is keeping his grip now! A second vertical suplex! Carson rolls over with Starr! A THIRD! THE THREE AMIGOS DELIVERED BY CARSON RAMSAY! Hang on though, that final suplex was a jackhammer of sorts it seems! Carson using that as a way to transition into his next cover as he pins down the shoulders of Starr Stan!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE…..TWOOOOOOOO……THREEEEEEEE!!! HEY, IT’S NO GOOD!

Kawajai: The referee is pointing over to the rope as he notices that Starr Stan managed to position his foot on the rope right before the count of three! Carson Ramsay thought he had it there and is arguing for that pin but it will be no use! He needs to stay on Starr Stan because he is already starting to stir in front of him! Carson Ramsay runs up to him while he’s on his hands and knees and knocks the wind out of him with a soccer kick! Starr Stan is favoring his gut and Carson Ramsay pulls him up by the singlet! NO! NO! CARSON RAMSAY ISN’T LOOKING TO GO FOR A PILEDRIVER IS HE!? HE IS! HE’S GOT STARR STAN UP! PILEDRIVEEEERRRRR!!!

WWEFan: NO!!! Starr Stan escapes it with a back body drop and gains some space! Starr Stan waits for Carson to get up and peppers him with uppercuts as he is rising to his feet! He then brings Carson in and lifts him up in the air! Carson gets behind him though! Dragon sleeper! Dragon sleeper being applied as Starr tries to fight it! He’s twisting around as he manages to stop his head from being pulled back! He’s still in a front facelock though — but not for long as Starr nails him in the gut! Carson’s hold weaken as Starr puts his arm around his head and lifts him up! THE STOCK DROP! CARSON RAMSAY IS DUMPED ON HIS HEAD WITH THAT VERTICAL SUPLEX DRIVER AND STARR STAN HOVERS OVER HIS FALLEN BODY! THE STRAPS OF HIS SINGLET GOES DOWN AND STARR STAN LETS OUT A ROAR! HE IS IN THE ZONE RIGHT NOW! HE’S ON TOP OF CARSON AND GOES DOWN HIS BODY, REACHING FOR THE LEG! STARR STAN IS NOW PICKING THE ANKLE OF CARSON!

Kawajai: ANKLE LOCK! THE ANKLE LOCK IS LOCKED IN ON CARSON RAMSAY! CARSON IS SCRATCHING AND CLAWING BUT STARR STAN BRINGS HIM BACK! ANKLE LOCK DEAD CENTER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS CARSON HAS NOWHERE TO GO! Carson Ramsay is scrambling but Starr Stan is pulling back with all of his strength! Carson is hurting as Starr twists that ankle more and more! Carson Ramsay has to get out of this! He’s turning over and kicking but Starr Stan gains control again and just turns him right back over!

WWEFan: Carson Ramsay is contemplating tapping! He has his hand up! He drops it down! Not for a submission though! He claws at the mat again and is fighting with every fiber of his being as he is pulling towards the ropes with Starr Stan lagging behind him! Starr refuses to let go of the ankle lock and Carson is willing to literally bring him with him to the ropes! He needs that break! Carson is struggling but with the strain of that ankle lock combined with exhaustion he might just pass out from the pain! He’s about three feet away from the ropes and is breathing at an alarming rate! He reaches out but then falls over on his face! He’s out like a light! He’s too exhausted!

Kawajai: No, no he’s not! He won’t give up, he’s still going! He surprises Starr Stan with his persistence as he literally walks with his hands to that rope! He reaches out once more! He’s grabbed the rope! He’s got it – what in the world!? Carson Ramsay’s hand is torn away from the rope as Starr Stan pulls him off right as he grabs it and grapevines the submission! And like that Carson’s glimmer of hope was put out as you can see his expression change! The pain on his face is INSANE! Carson’s ankle has to be killing him right now! Look at him! Carson puts one arm underneath his body and is literally biting down on the other, trying to remove any option of submission, verbal or tap out and cancel out the pain! Carson’s hand is actually BLEEDING from how hard he has been biting down on it! He will not say die and Starr Stan is in awe! Carson has guts, perhaps more than sense as Starr Stan is telling him to quit or he’ll break his ankle!

Starr Stan: (without mic) What’s the point of this? IT’S OVER! TAP! DON’T MAKE ME DO THIS!

Carson Ramsay: (without mic) NEVER!

WWEFan: Hold on, Carson Ramsay is repositioning himself! He has managed to get onto his side! He is now taking that free leg of his and slamming it onto Starr Stan repeatedly, over and over as he is not letting up! Starr Stan is in an awkward position as he is still has the ankle lock locked in, but with him being on his side as well it’s much harder to fully twist Carson’s leg! Starr Stan’s grip is starting to loosen as Carson keeps kicking! Carson is starting to crawl away as Starr keeps clinging on! Another kick! Carson is out of the ankle lock! FINALLY! The damage may have been done though as Carson can’t even stand up! That leg of his is as good as worthless it seems! Starr Stan clubs him in the back as he goes to get up! Starr has him in the air! THE OLYMPIC SLAM CONNECTS! THAT HAD TO HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE MOST VIOLENT OLYMPIC SLAMS I’VE SEEN! CARSON GOT RAGDOLLED! Starr Stan covers as the referee is in position! IS STARR STAN ABOUT TO GO OUT CHAMPION!?

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE…..TWOOOOOOOOOO……THRRRRRRR — KICKOUT!!!!!!

Kawajai: Unbelievable! Carson Ramsay got the shoulder up right as the referee went to call for the three. Starr Stan is frozen in a state of shock! He nearly killed Carson with that Olympic Slam and he still did not get a three! Carson Ramsay is barely even conscious, I don’t know how he kicked out of that but it seems Starr wants to correct it right away! Starr Stan walks over to the corner, turns to see that Carson is still down, and then scales to the top rope! He gives one final look at Carson and then he dives! STARRSAULT! STARR STAN WITH THE STARRSAULT AS IT CONNECTS RIGHT ON TOP OF CARSON, BULLSEYE! Starr Stan hooks both legs, this will have to be it!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE……TWOOOOOOOOOO……..THREEEEEEEEEEEE…..

WWEFan: AND CARSON STILL GETS THE SHOULDER UP! SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, HE WAS ABLE TO KICK OUT! WHAT WILL KEEP THIS KID DOWN!? Starr Stan is losing his mind right now! He heads over to Carson and takes his limp body in a face lock! He PLUNGES his knee into Carson’s face!

Starr Stan: (without mic) What is wrong with you? You can’t win! Just…..

WWEFan: ANOTHER KNEE!

“STAY!”

WWEFan: And he busts him in the face again!

“DOWN!”

WWEFan: AND NOW A BARRAGE OF KNEES! OVER AND OVER INTO CARSON’S BODY WITHOUT A RESPONSE! THIS IS GETTING INHUMANE! WE MAY NEED A REFEREE STOPPAGE AT THIS POINT! The referee is checking up on Carson but he still has enough energy to put up his hand and wave him off! Starr Stan picks him up and goes for even more brutal knees but Carson is throwing jabs to the ribs! Starr pushes him away into the ropes! BIG MISTAKE! Carson goes between the ropes and comes back like a pendulum! WICKED CHARMS LARIAT! Carson is too delayed from the beating though as Starr is able to block it! OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY!

Kawajai: CARSON RAMSAY LANDS ON HIS FEET! He saved himself but that wasn’t the best idea! That ankle of his! He almost collapses but thankfully there are the ropes to keep him up! Starr Stan is still on his back and Carson gingerly flips him over in a wheelbarrow position, rolling him onto his feet! Carson has him set up! FATEFUL EIGHTY NINE! THE HEADLOCK DRIVER! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL TRANSITION! CARSON USES WHAT HE HAS LEFT TO TURN STARR OVER AND COVER! HE CAN BARELY EVEN PICK UP THE LEG AS HE ATTEMPTS TO HOOK IT!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE…….TWOOOOOOOO……THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…….

WWEFan: Starr Stan kicked out! Carson Ramsay doesn’t even know where he is, he passed out momentarily on top of Starr during that cover! He’s got to close this match while he still has the advantage but he may be too disoriented! He puts his hand up in the air and the crowd is cheering him on, it’s almost like he is relying on their energy to mentally keep him in this match, to keep him awake! Carson Ramsay manages to get to his feet and the crowd is going nuts! Carson is not done yet! He tears off the remnants of his tattered shirt and drops down to SMASH his forearm into Starr’s face! He gets up! AND THEN HE DROPS DOWN AGAIN! AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AS HE TRIES TO KEEP STARR DOWN WITH THOSE FOREARMS! Starr Stan is looking lost as Carson drops down one more time, this time on his knees as he grabs Starr by the singlet! He’s got him up! THE PILEDRIVER! PILEDRIVER CONNECTS, DROPPING STARR ON HIS NECK! HE GOT IT THIS TIME AND HE COVERS!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE……..TWOOOOOOOOO……THRRRRRRRRR —

WWEFan: NO! STARR GOT THE SHOULDER UP! STARR KICKED OUT OF THAT PILEDRIVER! CARSON IS LOSING IT AS HE FOCUSES ON THE NOW HURTING NECK! ELBOWS TO THE BACK OF THE NECK AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL THE REFEREE ASKS FOR SOME SPACE! Carson has to pick himself back up as he then points to the top rope! He’s getting desperate here! We’re about to see Carson fly! Carson Ramsay heads onto the apron and then perches himself high! He turns his back to Carson and leaps! MOONSAULT!? HE LOOKS TO MOCK STARR AS HE STEALS HIS MOVE! OH! Starr Stan goes to move out of the way at the last second though!

Kawajai: No! Carson still got it! He clipped him pretty good there but it still seems but he did not get all of it! Starr was too hurt from that piledriver to fully move away! It was still effective with both men now being down from that maneuver! This is about wills now! Starr Stan is able to take his head off of the canvas and looks over at Carson who also picks up his head and locks eyes with him! These two are crawling to each other and exchanging forearms from that level! They’re getting to their knees now! Now they’re on their feet! THESE TWO DON’T CARE ABOUT PAIN, THEY’RE JUST SLUGGING IT OUT! CARSON HITS STARR SO BAD THE ELITE MOUTHPIECE GOES FLYING ALONG WITH A MIX OF SPIT AND BLOOD! STARR RESPONDS AND BUSTS HIS LIP! THESE SHOTS ARE GETTING HEAVIER AND HEAVIER AS IT GOES! THESE TWO ARE MOVING AS THEY DO SO, LEAVING THE CENTER OF THE RING AS — OH! Carson misses the forearm on his turn! Starr Stan headbutts him and slumps over in the corner! That’s the only thing keeping him up! A light bulb is beginning to form over Starr’s head as he seats Carson on the top rope! He now climbs up to the top rope to join him!

WWEFan: Starr Stan is looking to finally end this! This is him in last resort mode! He drapes Carson’s arm over his head and is bringing him up off of the turnbuckle! HE’S LOOKING FOR A SUPERSIZED VERSION OF HIS FINISHER HERE! OLYMPIC SLAM FROM THE TOP ROPE AS OH MY GOD! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING! CARSON MANAGES TO CHANGE THE DIRECTION AS HE ATTEMPTS THE MOVE AND TURN IT INTO A HEADLOCK DRIVER! NO! STARR STAN PUSHES HIM OFF AS HE GOES FOR IT! THE SUPER FATEFUL EIGHT NINE IS STOPPED AS THEY BOTH FALL FORWARD FROM THE TOP ROPE! STARR STAN WAS SLAMMED ONTO HIS HEAD FROM THE FALL AS CARSON GOES SKIDDING ON THE MAT AND DAMAGES THAT ANKLE EVEN MORE AS HE ATTEMPTED TO END UP ON HIS FEET THERE! THE TOP OF STARR’S HEAD IS BLEEDING AS HE FORCES HIMSELF UP! CARSON FORCES HIMSELF UP TOO! SPINNING BACKFIST BY CARSON AS HE SEES STARR CHARGE FOR HIM! STARR FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES AND REBOUNDS! CARSON DOES THE SAME AS THEY MEET IN THE MIDDLE! WICKED CHARMS AGAIN AS IT CONNECTS! COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE……..TWOOOOOOOOOOO……..THRRRRRRR —

Kawajai: NO! NO! STARR KICKED OUT! I DON’T KNOW HOW BUT HE DID IT! CARSON LOOKS ALMOST HYSTERICAL AS HE JUST LOOKS AT STARR! HE GETS UP AND IS PACING HIMSELF, BEGGING HIM TO GET UP! CARSON STALKS HIM AS HE GOES AND GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD! FATEFUL EIGHT NINE AGAIN ATTEMPTED! STARR SLIDES OUT OF IT THOUGH AS HE GETS BEHIND CARSON NOW! FOREARM TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! CARSON FALLS INTO HIS GRASP AS STARR GOES FOR THE OLYMPIC SLAM! CARSON IS DOING HIS BEST TO FIGHT IT BUT STARR WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT LIFTS HIM UP IN THE AIR! CARSON IS STILL STRUGGLING AS STARR’S KNEES BEGIN TO BUCKLE! HE NEEDS TO FOLLOW THROUGH! OLYMPIC SLAM! MY GOD! HE MANAGED TO HIT IT! STARR JUST PUTS HIS ARM OVER CARSON FOR A COVER AS THE REFEREE GETS IN POSITION!

Referee: ONEEEEEEE……TWOOOOOOOOO…….THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Kawajai: HE ACTUALLY DID IT!

WWEFan: OH MY GOD!

(“2nd Sucks” by A Day To Remember plays as Starr Stan rolls off of Carson Ramsay and crawls to the ropes, pulling himself up as the referee approaches him and raises his hand up in victory.)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner and NEEEEEEWWWWWW EAW PURE CHAMPION…….STARRRRRRRRRRRR STAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!

WWEFan: I truly cannot believe it. After nine years of busting his ass for EAW, Starr announced this Retirement tour and to many it was considered a long time coming. Several people didn’t think Starr had it in him anymore and the tour had plenty of bumps in the road but tonight he gave us another Pain For Pride classic like only he can! Tonight he kept up with the best top prospect in the business and perhaps the most fighting champion EAW has had in years!

Kawajai: He’s walking out of here with the belt tonight, the belt that represents the title he made famous! Talk about going out on top! This match was as close as they come and I’ll be honest, when I saw Carson change the direction of that Olympic Slam I thought it was over. Then that veteran instinct of Starr’s came in and surprised me. He pulled off the unthinkable! Starr Stan is ending his career as Pure Champion!

(Carson Ramsay begins to come to and watches Starr Stan celebrating. He puts his head down and begins to walk away, heading down the ramp in disappointment.)

WWEFan: And there’s the former champion as this loss is not sitting well for him. He had so much to prove tonight….

Kawajai: This is hitting him hard but it shouldn’t, he has nothing to be ashamed of.

WWEFan: I think Starr Stan recognizes that, he’s watching him go away and he’s asking for a microphone!

(Starr Stan heads to the time keeper’s area, quickly snatches away a microphone and rolls into the ring.)

Starr Stan: Carson…….CARSON! Listen, tonight you gave me the fight of my life. The Olympic Slam, the Starrsault, the Stock Drop, the ankle lock ; I emptied out my whole arsenal just for this one win! I didn’t expect this match to turn out the way it did. I thought you went lazy and lost focus…but I was wrong. You are honestly one of the best damn wrestlers I’ve seen in nine years of EAW. You were a great champion and I shouldn’t have doubted you. You did the Pure Championship proud and I’m sure that soon enough that you will do the very same with a World Championship! DON’T YOU AGREE WITH ME, PEOPLE?

(The crowd lets out a cheer in agreement!)

Starr Stan: See? These people still believe in you! They still love you! You have nothing to be ashamed of, you’re amazing kid. I guess all I really want to say is….I’m sorry. Win or lose, it doesn’t matter because after a match like that I must say that the torch is definitely in your hands now after tonight. Thank you for allowing an old dog to have one more night under the stars. I know some might not agree with me but you my friend…are Elite.

(Carson looks at him, uncertain of what to say, instead only giving a nod and backing away as the fans encourage him with chants of “Carson Ramsay”. He stops at the stage looking on as Starr Stan holds up the Pure Championship in his hands.)

WWEFan: Starr Stan is right, Carson is the man as far as I’m concerned! If that’s the kind of effort needed to beat him, by Pain For Pride 10 I feel like we’ll be seeing him doing much bigger things.

Kawajai: A huge seal of approval delivered tonight by Starr in his final match. It’s finally over guys. The nine year EAW career of Starr Stan is over as his last time in the ring has just been witnessed before our very eyes. All I can say is Thank you Starr.

(Starr Stan is overcome with emotion as he drops to his knees and looks around the entire stadium while holding the Pure Championship in his hands. Kawajai appears to have picked up on them early as the small chants of “Thank You Starr” soon grow into a thunderous, arena wide shout. Starr acknowledges them as he gets up with a smile on his face, holding the belt up and then doing a lap around ringside, letting fans touch it and high five him before he begins to make his way up the stage. Delivering a bow before we fade away.)

(The camera pans to the backstage where JJ Silva, Zack Crash, and Brody Sparks are talking amongst each other right before we see a livid Scott Oasis furiously join in as he locks eyes with Zack.)

Scott Oasis: You and I need to talk.

Zack Crash: Listen, I know last night wasn’t the bes…

Scott Oasis: NO! YOU LISTEN, YOU POOR MAN’S DARK DEMON! I’ve deserve better than what happened last night against that worthless excuse of a World Heavyweight Champion, Lucian Black! I’m miles above and beyond his ring skills and for SOME REASON, I can’t get something off on him!

Zack Crash: It was just a bad night, Scott. You can get that title back! He just got in your head is all!

Scott Oasis: NO! The problem isn’t me… THE PROBLEM IS YOU AND OMERTA! All of you made me soft, reliant on someone to come running down that ring to help me, BUT I SHOULDN’T NEED YOUR HELP! I’M THE ICEMAN! I’M THE MAN WHO SLAYED BRIAN DANIELS, ENDED TIG KELLY, AND PUNISHED JACOB SENN! I DON’T NEED ANY OF YOUR PEOPLE’S HELP! Now, I know why you wanted me in this organization of yours, Zack. You wanted to weaken me to the point where you could take advantage like every other ally you had that went on to become world champion! It’s too late, though, Zack! You weren’t able to do so because now you got Lucian Black walking around with the belt!

Zack Crash: I tried to do what was best for you, Oasis. I did what I could make sure that you represented Omerta with great prestige and honor as our World Heavyweight Champion. If it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t even be World Heavyweight Champion to begin with!

Scott Oasis: That’s where you’re wrong, Zack. I could’ve have done it without you, but I was willing to accept because I thought Omerta would make me more powerful than ever, when in reality, you just was weakening me until you can prey on me yourself. Well, guess what, Zack? I’m not giving you the chance… BECAUSE I’M DONE! YOU AND OMERTA CAN GO FIND SOME OTHER PAWN TO USE! HEY, MAYBE WHEN YOU BEAT JACOB, HE CAN HELP YOU OUT! BUT I’M DONE WITH THIS! I’ve already wasted enough time with you anyway…

Zack Crash: Scott! Don’t you dare! Don’t you dare leave! I MADE YOU!

(Zack Crash reaches out and grabs Scott Oasis by the shoulder… only for Scott to grab Crash and throw him up against the wall as you can see the rage building inside him with him almost wanting to rip his head off right before the rest of Omerta.)

Scott Oasis: Don’t you even THINK about laying another finger on me, Zack! You didn’t make anything but a poor excuse of an organization that hinges on making you relevant. With that being said, the next time I see your face, I’m going to dump you on your head and make sure that you aren’t able to walk again. Do you understand me?

(Zack nods silently as Scott release him and marches out of the locker room before slamming the door while JJ Silva and Brody Sparks console Zack to the best of their abilities.)

(A video package plays showcasing Vic Vendetta’s reign as the EAW Champion, his intentional disqualification against Mexican Samurai at the Grand Rampage to retain his title, and his loss to current EAW Champion Aren Mstislav. The video segues into Aren Mstislav’s reign as champion thus far before turning to Carlos Rosso speaking about the list of CWF World Champions that proudly held the title before he brought over to EAW. It shows the heated war of of words between the three over the past several weeks, Vic’s desire to reclaim his throne, Rosso’s to defend the CWF World Championship and fulfill his ambition to finally win a World Title in EAW, and Aren’s to protect what is his)

Ring Announcer: The following match is schedule for one fall… AND WILL BE CONTESTED FOR THE CWF AND E! A! W! WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS…

(The camera pans over to the titantron where Carlos Rosso’s theme “Money, Power, Respect” by The L.O.X. reverberates through the speakers as he walks down the aisle wearing gear emblazoned with the letters “CWF,” the names and reign lengths of several former CWF World Champions listed on his jacket, including his own current reign uniquely dated “THEN, NOW, FOREVER” as Carlos Rosso walks down to the ring with his CWF World Championship draped over his shoulder)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, hailing from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, weighing in earlier today at 211 pounds… He is the C! W! F! WOOOORLDDDDD CHAMPION… “THE RED ANGEL” … CARLOSSSSSS ROSSSOOOOO!!!!

Mercer: You can tell Carlos is entering the ring with a whole head of steam going into this clash. He, Aren Mstislav, and Vic Vendetta have been at odds for weeks, and it all culminates here at the pinnacle of wrestling — where stars are born and legends are created.

Masters: Wasn’t it hardcore legends?

Mercer: It’s just legends now!

(Vic Vendetta’s theme “Stroke God, Millionaire” by Dance Gavin Dance hits as he makes his way down to the ring with a more casual entrance. He appears to be all business, intently focused on the match at hand and completely unconcerned of the extravagance and pageantry associated with Pain for Pride. He’s waving his arms around his waist, as if to say “I’m the real EAW Champion”)

Ring Announcer: Also from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, weighing in earlier today at 256 pounds… He is the challenger of both titles… “YOUR WRESTLING GOD!” … VICTORRRRR VENDETTTAAAA!!!!

Mercer: You can tell Vic Vendetta has a huge chip on his shoulder ever since he lost that EAW Championship! You started getting the feeling during his reign that he was a wrestler who was more about the thrill of the chase than the catch, but he’s here to reclaim what he lost and prove that his first go-around as champion won’t be his last!

(The lights in the arena go dark. Videos of an asylum corridor fill the trons as faint footsteps echo. The screams and yells of the other inmates fill the arena as the footsteps stop in front of a door. The door opens with light blinding the camera and lighting the arena floor, which shows a glass case sitting atop the ramp face hidden from the crowd)

(The glass case fills with smoke hiding the occupant inside as “Heathens” starts to play)

“All my friends are heathens, take it slow…. Wait for them to ask you who you know.”

(A small red light the size of an eye illuminates inside the case piercing through the smoke)

“Please don’t make any sudden moves… you don’t know the half the abuse.”

(Gun fire is heard and the flash is seen in the case. The bullets weaken the glass case allowing the occupant to kick it open. He stands there waiting for the smoke to seep out)

“Welcome to the rooms of people who have rooms people that they loved one day, Docked away.”

(The figure steps out of the case and is revealed to be Aren, wearing Deadshot inspired garb complete with the red eye scope that is still illuminated, a pistol by his side and a rifle in hand. He has wrist mounted guns on him as well, and he just stands)

(A sound of stomping footsteps begins to be heard, and an assortment of Police Officers come marching out. They all stop at where Aren stands, and as he steps forward the marching continues as Aren makes his way down the ramp. He hands off the rifle and pistol to the nearest police officer at ringside and enters the ring. The officers make their way to the back)

“Why’d you come, you knew you should have stayed…. I tried to warn you just to stay away.”

(He raises his arms in the air and the arena goes dark again. Gun shot flashes light up the darkness as Aren fires off the whole clip of the wrist mounted guns)

“And now they’re outside ready to bust.”

(A sickly lone red light shines on Aren, and his gear has been taken off, but the light reveals his body painted to look like Deadshot’s suit)

“It looks like you might be one of us.”

Ring Announcer: Making his way down the ring… Hailing from Saint Petersburg, Russia, weighing in earlier today at 215 pounds… HE IS THE E! A! W! CHAMPION OF THE WORLDDDDD!!!!!! “THE RUSSIAN KING” … ARENNNNNN MSTISLAVVVV!!!!!

Mercer: Aren’s entering that ring after that garish entrance and has the look of a man with all the confidence in the world. He wants tonight to be his night. He’s walking down to the ring and staring at both Carlos Rosso and Vic Vendetta who without hesitation return the favor. These guys wear the expressions of men that have never failed.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Mercer: The triple threat for the EAW Championship and CWF Championship is underway! Both Vic Vendetta and Carlos Rosso have their eyes locked on the champion Aren Mstislav, is it possible they could forge an alliance to try and take down the champion early? All three of them are circling each other in the ring, the crowd is absolutely ELECTRIC. Vic Vendetta gestures to Carlos Rosso, he’s gonna let Rosso and Mstislav start this match with a tie-up! And they do! Mstislav and Rosso are tying up in front of a capacity crowd, and now Rosso quickly maneuvers behind him with a waist lock! AND VIC VENDETTA WITH THE FOREARM SMASH FROM BEHIND ROSSO! So much for that short-lived alliance! Aren and Carlos knotted up thinking Vic would leave them alone, but there’s no love lost and no love found in this match. Now Aren and Vic Vendetta are working on Carlos, showing the fragility of alliances in a triple threat, and they whip Carlos off the ropes! CARLOS COMES SLINGSHOTTING BACK WITH A FLYING DOUBLE SHOULDER BLOCK! Did you see the air he got on that one, Masters? Carlos has amazing vertical leaping ability!

Masters: Only at Pain for Pride! Carlos is sizing up both of his opponents now, turning his sights to Aren Mstislav as Vic Vendetta recovers in the corner. Carlos is bashing Mstislav over the head with closed fists, I’m getting the sense early on the referee is going to let this be as physical a match as possible! And would you believe it? Aren just keeps getting back up to his feet, Carlos is delivering an insane amount of punishment to the champion with these closed fists to the back of his head, but Aren’s just revving his engine! Aren’s getting back up to his feet despite everything is Carlos is throwing at him! HE’S UP! And now the two champions are trading blows with Aren appearing to get the upper-hand early, sending Rosso staggering back! He’s got the pride of CWF on his shoulders, what’s he doing?! NOW CARLOS RIFLES BACK WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION OF MSTISLAV FOLLOWED BY A THUNDEROUS CLOTHESLINE! AND HERE’S VIC VENDETTA FROM BEHIND TAKING OUT THE BACK OF ROSSO’S LEG, SWEEPING HIM STRAIGHT OFF HIS FEET! Carlos is immediately back up to his feet but hobbling, and now Vic takes him by the hand and whips him off the ropes! CLOTHESLINE FROM CARLOS ON THE REBOUND! NO! VIC SIDESTEPS IT AND THROWS CARLOS OVER THE ROPES AFTER TAKING HIM BY THE BACK OF THE HEAD!

Mercer: I think Vic landed squarely on his head on the outside of the ring! He might need medical attention after taking a nasty fall like that! Aren Mstislav is back up to his feet once again exchanging blows with the CWF World Champion, this is a battle of the crown right here! AREN WITH A RIGHT! CARLOS WITH A LEFT! BOTH COMPETITORS DEMONSTRATING THE ZEAL OF CHAMPIONS! CARLOS WITH A BACKFIST BUT STEALTHY AREN MSTISLAV DUCKS UNDER IT AND SPRINGS HIS BODY OFF THE ROPES! LOU THESZ PRESS! AREN RAN STRAIGHT INTO THE LOU THESZ PRESS FROM CARLOS ROSSO, AND NOW THE CWF WORLD CHAMPION IS PUMMELING HIM! CLOSED FISTS STRAIGHT INTO THE MOUTH OF AREN MSTISLAV, FOREARMS GALORE ALL OVER THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! AT THIS RATE, AREN MSTISLAV WILL BE BUSTED OPEN EARLY ON!

Masters: AREN POWERS OUT OF IT! AREN ROLLS CARLOS OVER AND HAS HIM IN THE SAME POSITION HE WAS ON THE GROUND, AND NOW MSTISLAV IS PUNISHING ROSSO’S FACE WITH A FLURRY OF CLOSED FISTS OF HIS OWN!!! WHAT’S THIS?! AREN ADJUSTS HIS POSITION, HE’S STARTED KNEEING CARLOS STRAIGHT IN THE MOUTH! HE’S TRYING TO KNOCK ROSSO UNCONSCIOUS! WHAT?! SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK OUT OF NOWHERE BY VIC VENDETTA RIGHT INTO THE TEETH OF THE GROUNDED AREN MSTISLAV! DID YOU SEE A TOOTH FLY OUT, MERCER?! I THINK I DID!

Mercer: VIC IS IN CHARGE RIGHT NOW! Carlos crawled over to the corner near the turnbuckle, but I’m not sure that’s such a good idea, Masters! RIGHT ON CUE VIC CHARGES AND CONNECTS WITH THE CANNONBALL SENTON! Carlos is seeing little birds right now, he has absolutely no idea where he is, and what is this?! AREN MSTISLAV IS ALREADY RECOVERED, HE ROLLS VIC VENDETTA UP FROM BEHIND!

Ref: ONEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOO….

Masters: A KICKOFF BY VIC VENDETTA! VIC IS SHOCKED AREN WAS ABLE TO RECOVER THAT QUICKLY AFTER TAKING THE SUPERKICK STRAIGHT TO THE JAW! BOTH MEN ARE UP TO THEIR FEET ATTEMPTS AN ELBOW TO THE FACE OF VIC VENDETTA! VIC REVERSES INTO A BACKSLIDE PIN!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOO

Mercer: MSTISLAV WITH THE KICKOUT! Vic tried to sneak away with the EAW and CWF World Championships, but that’s not gonna be enough to put away the Russian Prince tonight! Mstislav quickly strikes back with a knife-edge chop to the chest of Vic Vendetta, and Vic retaliates with a punch right in the noggin of Aren Mstislav! All three competitors have been evenly matched thus far, but only one escape with the championships! Carlos Rosso is slowly getting back up to his feet in the corner, Aren and Vic are going at in the center of the ring with neither able to get a clear advantage over the other. But here’s a knee to the gut of Vic by Aren Mstislav! AREN SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES! KAISER’S CROWN! KAISER’S CROWN! NO! NO! AREN’S BOOT MISSED VIC VENDETTA’S HEAD! VIC IS UP AND HAS AREN FROM BEHIND WITH A WAIST LOCK! RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! VIC VENDETTA ABSOLUTELY LAUNCHES AREN MSTISLAV WITH THAT RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX. AREN LANDED AWKWARDLY, I’M NOT SURE IF HE’S GONNA BE ABLE TO GET UP TO HIS FEET ANY TIME SOON! AND NOW RIGHT AS VIC VENDETTA RISES TO HIS FEET, CARLOS COMES DASHING IN WITH A HEADBUTT! ANOTHER HEADBUTT TO THE SKULL OF VIC VENDETTA AND HE’S STAGGERING BACK, HIS BODY IS BACKED UP AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE, AND NOW CARLOS DELIVERS SOME VICIOUS HEADBUTTS TO THE MIDSECTION OF VIC VENDETTA! ONE AFTER THE OTHER, YOU CAN HEAR FORMER EAW CHAMPION VIC VENDETTA SCREAMING IN AGONY! CARLOS LIFTS VIC VENDETTA UP ON THE ROPES, HE’S GOT BOTH OF HIS LEGS POSITIONED ON THE SECOND RUNG OF THE ROPES. CAN HE GET THEM TO THE THIRD?! YES! CARLOS HAS BOTH OF VIC VENDETTA’S LEGS HOISTED ON THE TOP ROPE, IS HE GOING FOR THE SUPERPLEX?! CARLOS HAS VIC UP, BUT WHAT’S THIS?! HERE’S AREN FROM BEHIND! AREN MSTISLAV HOOKS BOTH OF CARLOS ROSSO’S LEGS IN THAT POWERBOMB POSITION!

Masters: AND THEY ALL COME CRASHING ON THE MAT WITH THE TOWER OF DOOM! I THINK CARLOS ROSSO MAY HAVE TAKEN THE WORST OF IT, BUT IT’S EXACTLY LIKE I ALWAYS SAID — WHAT GOES UP, MUST COME DOWN! YOU COULD HEAR THE THUD AS THEIR BODIES LANDED AGAINST THE MAT! NONE OF THEM HAVE MOVED YET, AREN MSTISLAV APPEARS TO HAVE NICKED HIS EYE ON ROSSO’S BOOT AS HE RECOILED! None of them have lifted a muscle yet, the crowd is in shock, but the show must go on no matter what! The referee is asking Mstislav if he wants to continue, his eye is closed shut right now, but it seems the EAW Champion is certain he wants to continue! Vic Vendetta has wisely rolled out of the ring to regroup while Aren and Carlos are both tugging on the ropes to try and leverage themselves back to their feet. Aren gets up to his feet first, but he’s still nursing that injured eye he took from that fall! AND NOW CARLOS IS UP! Carlos seems to have immediately noticed Aren’s eye injury as he tweaks him right in that hurt eye, and now he’s taunting Aren! Oh my god, what was that?! CARLOS JUST SAID “I’M GOING TO CHERNOBYL YOUR ASS!” TO AREN MSTISLAV! HE JUST INVOKED ONE OF THE GREATEST DISASTERS OF THE LAST THIRTY YEARS TO THE RUSSIAN PRINCE! MUAY THAI KICK! MUAY THAI KICK DIRECTLY INTO THE CRANIUM OF AREN MSTISLAV AND IT’S LIGHTS OUT FOR THE EAW CHAMPION RIGHT NOW! CARLOS IS TRYING TO GO FOR THE COVER, AND HERE IT IS!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEE… TWOOOOOOOO… THRRRR—

Mercer: SENTON BOMB FROM OUT OF NOWHERE BY VIC VENDETTA! SENTON BOMB ONTO CARLOS ROSSO BREAKING THE PIN ON AREN MSTISLAV! VIC VENDETTA IS THE WILD CARD IN THIS MATCHUP, THE FORMER EAW CHAMPION, AND HE KNOWS IT! He was playing possum while on the outside of the ring and he returned in the nick of time, that’s a man of great resources right there! Vic Vendetta stands Carlos Rosso back up on his feet while Aren Mstislav is still laid out cold on the mat. Vic hooks his arm over Carlos Rosso’s head and he lifts him up in the air! Impressive strength, he’s lifting up the CWF World Champion like a child’s plaything! He lifts him over the top ropes, he’s just hanging there, Vic definitely has some cruel intentions in mind and I ain’t talkin’ about a Ryan Phillippe movie! DRAGON SCREW NECK WHIP! DRAGON SCREW NECK WHIP, OH MY GOD! IF I DIDN’T KNOW BETTER, I’D SAY VIC VENDETTA JUST BROKE CARLOS ROSSO’S NECK! BUT HE’S NOT IMMEDIATELY GOING FOR THE COVER, WHAT COULD BE THE MEANING OF THIS? VIC IS POINTING TO THE CHAMPIONSHIPS AND SAYING THEY BELONG TO HIM, HE’S SAYING “I’M THE REAL CHAMPION” WHILE LEISURELY WALKING AROUND THE RING AS IF HE WERE STROLLING THROUGH THE PARK! I’M NOT SURE LALLYGAGGING IS SUCH A GREAT IDEA ON VIC’S PART, BUT NOW HE’S GOING BACK TO CARLOS ROSSO, HE’S STOMPING A MUDHOLE IN THE STERNUM OF THE CWF WORLD CHAMPION! VIC’S JUST HAVING FUN OUT HERE, HE’S TOYING WITH CARLOS ROSSO! AREN MSTISLAV IS STIRRING OVER IN THE OTHER CORNER, CAN GET UP IN ENOUGH TIME TO STIFLE VIC VENDETTA?!

Masters: VIC’S CHARGING AT AREN NOW! SENTON CANNONBALL! SENTON CANNONBALL! IT CONN—AREN ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! AREN ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND AND VIC CAUGHT NOTHING BUT TURNBUCKLE AS HE STAGGERS BACK! AREN SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES! KAISER’S CROWN! KAISER’S CROWN CONNECTS ON VIC VENDETTA! OH MY GOD, AREN IS GOING TO BE BOTH EAW AND CWF WORLD CHAMPION!

Mercer: AREN’S GASSED, HE’S TOO EXHAUSTED TO GET THE COVER! NO, NO—HIS EYE INJURY FLARED UP! HE’S HOLDING THAT EYE HE INJURED EARLIER ON IN THIS MATCHUP! THIS COULD LOOM LARGE IN DECIDING WHETHER OR NOT HE RETAINS HIS CHAMPIONSHIP AND WINS A NEW ONE! AREN IS UNABLE TO GET A COVER OVER VIC VENDETTA, BUT CARLOS IS STARTING TO RISE BACK UP TO HIS FEET! COULD CARLOS REAP THE BENEFITS OF AREN’S DIRTY WORK? CARLOS ROSSO HAS THE PINFALL ON VIC VENDETTA! I’M GONNA BE SICK, MASTERS!

Ref: ONEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOO…. THRRRR—

Masters: KICKOUT AT TWO AND A HALF! VIC HAD JUST ENOUGH TIME TO RECOVER ENOUGH TO KICK OUT AFTER TAKING THAT KAISER’S CROWN! CARLOS ROSSO WANTED TO TAKE CREDIT FOR AREN’S WORK, BUT HE’S JUST GONNA HAVE TO DO IT THE HARD WAY! CARLOS IS FURIOUS, HE’S GOING BACK TO WORK ON AREN MSTISLAV AND TAUNTING HIM SOME MORE!

CARLOS: “TELL YOUR GIRL DADDY’S COMING HOME WITH THE TITLES TONIGHT!”

Mercer: JESUS CHRIST, CARLOS JUST UTTERED SOMETHING UNREPEATABLE ABOUT THE CURRENT VIXENS CHAMPION AND AREN MSTISLAV’S PARAMOUR, ARIA JAXON! CARLOS IS WORKING ON AREN’S INJURED EYE RIGHT NOW, HE’S SMACKING HIM AROUND, AND THIS JUST ISN’T FAIR! THE EAW CHAMPION DOESN’T EVEN KNOW WHERE HE IS RIGHT NOW FOR GOD’S SAKE! CARLOS DRAGS AREN MSTISLAV BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND CONNECTS A QUICK ATOMIC DROP FOLLOWED BY A SNAP DDT THAT POUNDS AREN’S FACE INTO THE MAT AND CAN’T BE ANY GOOD FOR HIS AILING EYE! CARLOS IS SUCH A SHOWBOAT, HE’S POINTING AND LAUGHING AT THE CROWD SHOWING THEM WHAT HE’S DONE TO THEIR CHAMPION! THEY’VE ACTUALLY TURNED TO AREN’S SIDE! CARLOS IS NOW TURNING AREN OVER, HE HAS SOME SORT OF SUBMISSION IN MIND, WHAT COULD HE BE? HE’S TRYING TO PUT AREN MSTISLAV, WHO IS STILL HOLDING THAT EYE, OUT OF COMMISSION HERE! TORRE PENDENTE! TORRE PENDENTE! THE KNEELING CROSS-LEGGED STF HE CALLS THE TORRE PENDENTE IS LOCKED IN AND AREN IS WRITHING IN AGONY ON THE GROUND! I TRULY DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH MORE PUNISHMENT AREN MSTISLAV CAN TAKE, BUT THIS IS PAIN FOR PRIDE, THE PINNACLE OF WRESTLING, WHERE STARS ARE BORN AND LEGENDS CREATED! CARLOS IS REARING BACK AND AREN HAS NOWHERE TO GO! AREN’S ARMS ARE FLAILING IN THE AIR, HE’S TRYING NOT TO TAP BUT YOU CAN SEE WITH EVERY SECOND THAT HE’S GETTING CLOSER TO SUBMITTING! HIS WHOLE FACE IS SWOLLEN RED LIKE A WATERMELON, MASTERS! AREN WAVES HIS ARM DOWN, HE JUST TAPPED DIDN’T HE?!?!

Masters: NO! IT WAS JUST THE NATURAL MOTION OF HIS ARM GOING DOWN, THE REFEREE ISN’T SIGNALING FOR THE BELL! THIS IS STILL A MATCH, BUT HOW MUCH LONGER CAN AREN ENDURE THIS KIND OF PAIN? VIC IS GETTING UP! CARLOS HAS NO IDEA VIC IS GETTING UP, BUT HOW FAST HE CAN GET UP WILL BE THE DETERMINING FACTOR HERE! AREN COULD STILL TAP! CARLOS IS REARING THAT TORRE PENDENTE BACK AGAIN, AREN’S ARM IS UP IN THE AIR, THE REFEREE IS ASKING HIM IF HE’S FINISHED, AND NOW VIC FROM BEHIND! VIC FROM BEHIND USES CARLOS ROSSO’S OWN MOVE ON HIM! THE RAINMAKER! THE RAINMAKER! THAT RAINMAKER CONNECTS ON CARLOS ROSSO FROM BEHIND AND NOW VIC ONCE AGAIN CONTROLS THIS NECK OF THE WOODS! VIC’S GOING FOR THE PIN ON CARLOS! HE HOOKS THE LEG! TWO-TIME CHAMP!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEE… TWOOOOOOO… THRRRRR—

Mercer: KICKOUT BY THE CWF WORLD CHAMPION! THAT MUST’VE BEEN PURE INSTINCT RIGHT THERE, MASTERS, IT’S THE HEAT OF THE MOMENT, IT’S PAIN FOR PRIDE, AND CARLOS JUST USED THE ADRENALINE TO KICK OUT OF THE RAINMAKER! VIC VENDETTA IS IN DISBELIEF, HE’S THINKING “WHAT MORE DO I HAVE TO DO?” AND THE EXPRESSION ON HIS FACE TELLS THE WHOLE STORY! VIC WANTS TO PROVE HIS CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN WASN’T A FLUKE, BUT AREN AND CARLOS ARE TOUGH COMPANY, HE’S GOT HIS WORK CUT OUT FOR HIM! VIC DOESN’T HAVE ANY TIME TO WASTE, BUT WHAT’S THIS?! INSTEAD OF GOING BACK ON THE OFFENSIVE AND ATTACKING CARLOS ROSSO, HE’S TARGETING AREN MSTISLAV! HE’S TARGETING THE WOUNDED EYE OF AREN MSTISLAV, PUMMELING HIS BOOT IN THAT EYE REPEATEDLY! THIS IS VICIOUS! THIS IS INHUMANE! BOTH CARLOS AND VIC HAVE NOW RESORTED TO CHEAPSHOTTING AREN MSTISLAV!

Masters: Like you wouldn’t do the same thing. That’s the thing about these matches, you have to exploit anything you possibly can to get an advantage. Carlos and Vic have done exactly that. It’s up to the EAW Champion to prove he can withstand it all and walk out the winner!

Mercer: Aren is inching toward the ropes while Vic continues his onslaught, stomping that boot into the side of Aren’s head near his eye! Aren has the ropes, he’s protecting himself, and the referee is forcing a rope break! The referee is separating Vic Vendetta and Aren Mstislav, and now Vic turns his attention back over to Carlos Rosso! I’m not sure that’s such a good idea, you don’t give a talent the caliber of Aren Mstislav any time to recover because he will make you regret it. Nonetheless, Vic Vendetta is pounding away at Carlos Rosso who is still recovering from that Rainmaker! Vic now has Carlos in a grounded headlock, but can you believe the strength of this man Carlos Rosso? He’s already rising to his feet, he’s outmuscling Vic Vendetta! Maybe his physical conditioning heading into this match was just a little better? Whatever the case, both of these elitists are up to their feet while Aren Mstislav is still recovering in the corner! CARLOS WITH AN ELBOW TO THE CHEST OF VIC VENDETTA! AND NOW A KNEE TO THE GUT! CARLOS WITH THE ONE HIT KILL! ONE HIT KILL STRAIGHT IN THE FACE OF VIC VENDETTA, AND VENDETTA HASN’T RETALIATED AT ALL! NOW CARLOS HAS VIC UP! HE’S GONNA GO FOR THE DREADED RED SPIKE PILEDRIVER! THIS IS A MOVE THAT HAS SHORTENED CAREERS! VIC IS UP, BUT HE’S SWINGING THAT RIGHT LEG BACK INTO CARLOS ROSSO’S HEAD, HE’S FLAILING ALL OF HIS EXTREMITIES AWAY AND TRYING TO GET OUT OF THIS PILEDRIVER! CARLOS IS STAGGERING BACK AGAINST THE ROPES, HE MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH STRENGTH TO PUT VIC AWAY, BUT NOW CARLOS HAS REGAINED HIS BALANCE! RED SPIKE! RED SPIKE PILEDRIVER! VIC VENDETTA’S SKULL HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY PLANTED INTO THAT COLD MAT! CARLOS HOOKS THE LEG! NEW CHAMPION! NEW CHAMPION!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOO…. THRRRRRRRR—

Masters: AREN MSTISLAV WITH THE FOREARM SMASH OUT OF NOWHERE TO BREAK UP THE PIN! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE COMPETITIVE SPIRIT! AREN’S INJURED EYE STILL LOOMS LARGE BUT FOR NOW HE HAS MANAGED TO STAY AFLOAT! AND CARLOS ROSSO IS FURIOUS, CARLOS ROSSO IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND HE DRAGS AREN BACK UP ALONG WITH HIM! WHAT’S THIS?! CARLOS ROSSO IS YELLING AT AREN MSTISLAV YET AGAIN!

Carlos: I’M TAKING YOUR TITLE THEN I’M GONNA WIFE UP YOUR GIRL!

Mercer: AND AREN MSTISLAV HAS GONE ABSOLUTELY BALLISTIC! HE MAY NOT KNOW WHERE HE IS RIGHT NOW, BUT HE’S CHARGING AROUND AIMLESSLY! AND HE HITS ROSSO IN THE MIDSECTION WITH A HEADBUTT! HE’S CHANNELING VOIN RIGHT NOW, HE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT WHAT’S IN FRONT OF HIM BECAUSE HE’S CLEARING A PATH OF DESTRUCTION! AREN SEEMS TO HAVE REGAINED SOME VISION, CARLOS IS TRYING TO FEND HIM OFF BUT CARLOS ROSSO’S PUNCHES AREN’T AFFECTING HIM WHATSOEVER! CARLOS IS PUMMELING HIS HEAD WITH LEFT AND RIGHTS, FOREARMS, HEADBUTTS, EVERYTHING, BUT AREN — VOIN — IS HOLDING HIS GROUND! I HAVE NEVER SEEN AREN MSTISLAV SUMMON SUCH INTENSITY IN A MATCH BEFORE! IT’S PERSONAL NOW! CARLOS IS PUNISHING AREN MSTISLAV WITH HITS THAT WOULD ABSOLUTELY LEVEL ANY NORMAL MAN, BUT NOT THIS MAN, NOT VOIN! AREN MSTISLAV IS ABSORBING PUNISHMENT LIKE I’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE AND YET HE’S COMPLETELY UNFAZED! AREN CHARGES AT CARLOS ROSSO, BUT RIGHT INTO A TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER BY THE CWF WORLD CHAMPION! WHAT THE HELL?! AREN’S BACK UP TO HIS FEET! VOIN IS COMPLETELY UNFAZED, HE’S UP TO HIS FEET LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED, AND CARLOS ROSSO CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT HE JUST SAW! CARLOS IS MOUTHING SOMETHING THAT CAN’T BE OVERHEARD AT HIM, AND NOW HE KNEES AREN IN THE GUT! HE HOISTS HIM UP! RED SPIKE! RED SPIKE! IT CONNECTS! OH MY GOD, VOIN HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY LAID OUT! THERE’S NO GETTING UP FROM THAT ONE!

Masters: Carlos turns his back on Aren Mstislav and now he’s taunting the crowd, Vic hasn’t moved a muscle, Carlos is gesturing that he’s about to become the EAW Champion and fulfill a lifelong dream in the CWF style! Carlos has been a major instigator in this match thus far, but his tricks and mind games may have finally paid off! He’s yelling again!

Carlos: THAT’S MY BITCH! THAT’S MY BITCH!

Mercer: Carlos is pointing to Aren Mstislav, but given his previous comments maybe he’s referring to Aria Jaxon as well? BUT WHAT’S THIS?! CARLOS HASN’T LOOKED BEHIND HIM, IT’S VOIN! IT’S VOIN! AREN MSTISLAV IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AGAIN APPEARING UNHARMED AND UNAFFECTED BY THE RED SPIKE PILEDRIVER. I’VE GOT TO THINK CARLOS ROSSO WAITED JUST A LITTLE TOO LONG TO CAPITALIZE, SURELY SOMEONE WITH HIS CWF PEDIGREE KNOWS HE SHOULDN’T BE GLOATING UNTIL AFTER THE MATCH! CARLOS ROSSO HAS NO IDEA, AND NOW HE TURNS AROUND! AREN MSTISLAV IS TAKING THE FIGHT TO CARLOS ROSSO, SLINGING RIGHTS AND LEFTS STRAIGHT INTO HIS FACE! ROSSO STAGGERS BACK AGAINST THE ROPES AND AREN IRISH WHIPS HIM OFF OF THEM… KNEE TO THE GUT ON THE REBOUND BY AREN MSTISLAV! CARLOS WAS SWEPT OFF HIS FEET BY THAT RUNNING KNEE TO THE GUT, AND NOW HERE’S VIC VENDETTA RIGHT BEHIND AREN MSTISLAV! SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK SQUARE IN THE JAW OF AREN MSTISLAV AND HE’S LURCHING BACKWARD, BUT HE’S ABLE TO KEEP HIS BALANCE! I DON’T BELIEVE IT! NEITHER DOES VIC! VIC DOES THE ONLY THING HE CAN DO, HE HITS ANOTHER SUPERKICK! AND CARLOS FROM BEHIND, CARLOS GRABBED SOMETHING FROM INSIDE HIS TIGHTS! A LOW BLOW! A LOW BLOW WITH BRASS KNUCKLES! THIS ISN’T VERY CWF-LIKE! CARLOS TOSSES THE BRASS KNUCKLES OUT OF THE RING BEFORE THE REFEREE CAN SEE. THE REFEREE WAS DISTRACTED AS VIC VENDETTA TOOK HIS ATTENTION AWAY!

Masters: Both Vic and Carlos knew Aren was the hot hand in this match as soon as he began channeling Voin! They downsized the EAW Champion a few pegs and now we’ll get to see Vic Vendetta and Carlos Rosso square off right here head to head! Carlos takes Aren Mstislav by the back of the head and throws him over the top rope and out of the ring, it’s just these two now! Mano a mano! They’re circling each other in the ring, both of them thinking this is going to be their Pain for Pride moment! The two tie up in the middle of the ring, but Vic Vendetta isn’t having any of that, he quickly executes a knife-edge chop and a leg kick to the sternum off Rosso! VIC SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES! CLOTHESLINE, BUT IT DOESN’T APPEAR TO HAVE HAD MUCH OF AN EFFECT, CARLOS ROSSO IS STILL ON HIS FEET AND TELLING VIC TO BRING IT! HE WANTS MORE! VIC VENDETTA SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES AGAIN, BUT CARLOS SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES ON THE OTHER SIDE, MEETING VIC VENDETTA RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING FOR A SCISSORS KICK! SCISSORS KICK ON VIC VENDETTA CONNECTS AND CARLOS ROSSO IMMEDIATELY GOES FOR THE PIN! HE HOOKS THE LEG!

AREN IS STIRRING ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, BUT HE DOESN’T QUITE HAVE THE ENERGY TO GET BACK IN. CARLOS CAN’T BELIEVE IT, BUT HE’S NOT WASTING ANY TIME TO GO BACK ON THE OFFENSIVE, STRIKING VIC IN THE HEAD REPEATEDLY, SMACKING HIM, DOING WHATEVER HE CAN TO PUT THIS MAN AWAY SO HE CAN BECOME EAW CHAMP AND PROUDLY DEFEND THAT CWF TITLE! CARLOS STANDS VIC VENDETTA BACK UP TO HIS FEET, VIC IS GROGGY, HE’S JOSTLING TO GET CONTROL OF HIS EQUILIBRIUM, AND NOW CARLOS PULLS HIM BETWEEN HIS LEGS! HE HOISTS HIM UP IN THE AIR!

HE’S PUMMELING HIS HEAD REPEATEDLY INTO THE TURNBUCKLE, HE’S TRYING TO GIVE ROSSO A CONCUSSION! HE’S GOT IT SEATED THERE NOW, HANGING AGAINST THE TOP CORNER CUSHION ON THE TURNBUCKLE, AND NOW AREN’S TAKING AN UNORTHODOX CLIMB UP THE ROPE AS CARLOS ROSSO’S HEAD IS RIGHT UNDER HIM! I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE, MERCER! WHAT IS AREN THINKING? HAS VOIN GOTTEN TO HIM?! AREN’S NOW WALKING THE ROPES, HE’S TEETERING ACROSS THEM AND BALANCING HIMSELF PERFECTLY! AND HERE’S AREN! AREN JUMPS OFF THOSE ROPES AND CONNECTS THE MOST VICIOUS KAISER’S CROWN I HAVE EVER SEEN DIRECTLY INTO ROSSO’S HEAD AS IT WAS POSITIONED ON THAT TURNBUCKLE CUSHION!

Ring Announcer: The winner of this match by pinfall, STILL your EAW Champion and the NEWWWWW CWF WORLD CHAMPIONNNNN….. ARENNNNNN MSTISLAVVVVV!!!!!!!!!

Masters: IN A DAY WHERE SO MUCH IMPROBABLE HAS OCCURRED, THE IMPOSSIBLE HAS HAPPENED! TWO FOES, ONE HELL-BENT ON RETRIEVING THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP, THE OTHER TRYING TO FULL A LIFELONG DREAM TO BECOME EAW CHAMPION AND UPHOLD THE HONOR OF A FALLEN COMPANY HE ONCE STARRED IN, AND AREN MSTISLAV STANDS ON TOP OF IT ALL!

(Aren Mstislav and Aria Jaxon share a passionate kiss as both of them now walk up the ramp. By the time they’re at the top of it, they both stop with their backs turned to the crowd. Aria Jaxon holds up her Vixens Championship while Aren Mstislav holds up his EAW Championship and his newly won CWF World Championship at the same time as the picture is still for a moment before the camera fades to black)

( The song skips to the heavier guitar-backed chorus, as the Pain for Pride 9 graphic comes up on the screen. )

Narrator: AND NOW… ELITE ANSWERS BRINGS TO YOU THE FINALE OF OUR FEATURE PRESENTATION… PAAAAIN FOOOR PRIIIDE DAAAY 3!!!!!

(The camera cuts to New Miami Stadium as pyro explodes all across the Pain For Pride stage as “Feeling Good” by Muse blares over the loudspeakers. The fans are jumping up and down, giving their loudest ovation of the 3 days so far. The crowd roars with cheers all throughout the entire Stadium – seas of signs all in sight as the camera cuts to different panning shots)

Stew-O: ONCE MORE, WELCOME TO PAIN FOR PRIDE! WELCOME TO THE MECCA! WELCOME TO THE FINAL DAY OF THE BIGGEST EVENT IN SPORTS TODAY!

(Camera cuts to Stew-O and an excited Matt Ryder at the Dynasty Announce Table)

Matt: I HOPE IT NEVER ENDS, BRO! I’M HAVING A BLAST! I LOVE THIS CITY, AND I LOVE THIS SHOW! IT’S BEEN JUST AWESOME SO FAR!

Stew: AND IT’S ABOUT TO GET THAT MUCH BIGGER, MATT! WE’VE GOT OUR FINAL MATCHES ON THEIR WAY! WE’VE GOT CHAMPIONSHIP GOLD ON THE LINE! WE’VE GOT SCORES TO BE SETTLED! IT’S NOT OVER UNTIL IT’S OVER! THIS IS THE FINAL DAY OF PAIN FOR PRIDE 9 AND THIS MIAMI CROWD HAS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT NEW MIAMI STADIUM WITHIN THE BLINK OF AN EYE! THEY’RE RABID! THEY’RE PUMPED! THEY WANT TO SEE ACTION FROM THE BEST COMPETITORS IN THE WORLD TODAY, SO LET’S NOT KEEP THEM WAITING ANY LONGER!

( The ending part to “Feeling Good” by Muse dies down and leaves behind a RAUCOUS massive crowd. )

(A video package plays showcasing Pain for Pride 6 when Zack Crash became the winner of Cash in the Vault and World Heavyweight Champion, the beginning of the rivalry between Zack Crash and Jacob Senn, The Ambulance Match between the two, the rise to power as EAW Chairman by Zack Crash, the Elimination Chamber Match where he was ousted, The Glass Crypt Match to where Jacob Senn would be injured, and the recent events and developments with Omerta and Dynasty.)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is AN “I QUIT” MATCH!!! The only way to win this match is to force your opponent to say the words “I Quit” by any means necessary!

(“Mafioso” by Mac Dre blasts all around The New Miami Stadium as a 1940 Lincoln Coupe rides out from beside the main stage and makes its way towards the ramp. Hanging outside of the vehicle are Omerta thugs with Tommy guns in their hands, until they park by the ramp and open the door for the stunning Brody Sparks! She walks around the vehicle and opens the door with Zack Crash, donning a long jacket with an Omerta sigil on the shoulders, exiting out of the vehicle to make his entrance.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from Charleston, West Virginia… weighing in at 225 pounds… “The Kingpin” ZAAACCCCKKKKK CRRAAASSSSHHHHH!!!

(Zack Crash walks up on the ramp and kisses the hand of Brody Sparks before she is led back to the vehicle right as he stands and taunts to the vicious Miami crowd that is disgusted with simply the sight of him, let alone him being bold and letting them know he’s ready for this.)

Stew-O: This is what we’ve been waiting for, folks! The end of a three-year saga is about to unfold right before our eyes! This is going to be brutal, savage, and a match that you will definitely not want to miss!

Matt Ryder: Not only that, bro, but think of the stakes that are on the line for this match! If Zack Crash is somehow able to make Jacob Senn be able to say “I Quit” in this match, Jacob is forced to be a member of Omerta! That would be a living nightmare for Jacob Senn and you know that he will not want to be a part of that!

( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmYtkbfrIUw echoes throughout The New Miami Stadium with black smoke pillars rising from the stage only for at the apex of the song for Jacob Senn to rise out of the smoke donning black-on-white attire with a Punisher skull mask on as he points a gun taunt towards the ring and to Zack Crash. )

Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, he is from Chicago, Illinois… he weighs in at 218 pounds… “The Punisher” JAACCCOOOOBBBBB SEEENNNNNNNNN!!!

(Jacob Senn motions like he’s holding a machine gun and starts moving back-and-forth as white pyrotechnics fire all around the stage before it stops with him as he simply walks down the ramp and starts entertaining the crowd as they give him a massive applause coming into this match.)

Matt Ryder: After all of this, Jacob Senn has finally reached the point where he can gain redemption and destroy Omerta right from the head, while attaining something in return for what he’s about to put himself through in this match!

Stew-O: That’s right because on the flip side of this coin, Jacob Senn will earn “The Godfather’s Gift”, where Zack Crash will have to do everything in his power to secure whatever he desires and knowing how resourceful Zack Crash can be!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: The bell has rung and I believe Jacob Senn and Zack Crash are just taking a moment to drink this all in as they circle around the ring! Think about it, Matt! Who would’ve thought back in 2013 that these two men would be opening up the first-ever third day of Pain for Pride in a heated blood rivalry that has lasted three years on a stage such as this? The jealousy and anger that came from Jacob Senn back in the day, the hatred for Dynasty and the corrupt nature of Zack Crash, both men have done vile things to one another, but tonight is where we are going to see the climax and the finale of this war once and for all! Jacob and Zack are already starting to argue against one another about the situation RIGHT BEFORE JACOB FIRES THE FIRST SHOT WITH A HUGE ELBOW STRIKE TO THE FACE! ZACK REELS BACK AS HE HOLDS HIS JAW FROM THE SHOT… BUT HE FIRES BACK WITH A PUNCH STRAIGHT TO THE FACE! THEY ARE OFF! THESE TWO BITTER RIVALS ARE SLUGGING IT OUT RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS THE FINAL BATTLE HAS JUST BEGUN!

Matt Ryder: LOOK AT THIS BROS! JACOB SENN HAS GAINED THE UPPER HAND AS HE JUST STARTS FIRING OFF WITH THE PUNCHES AND ELBOWS ONTO ZACK CRASH! HE’S CAUGHT IN THE STORM OF STRIKES AS HE’S PUSHED BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLE WHERE HE’S CORNERED! ZACK HAS NOWHERE TO GO AND JACOB KNOWS THIS! HE WANTS TO TAKE THIS CHANCE AS HE JUST STARTS STOMPING A MUDHOLE RIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF ZACK! WITH EACH AND EVERY STOMP, ZACK JUST SLUMPS DOWN INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE TURNBUCKLE AS JACOB IS JUST GOING TO TOWN WITH THESE STOMPS AS IF THE RAGE HAS JUST TAKEN OVER RIGHT NOW!

Stew-O: Jacob Senn finally is able to settle down for a moment as Zack Crash is just unable to stand, left wondering where he’s even at, AS JACOB SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING WHILE THE DAZED ZACK LIES IN THE CORNER! HE RUNS OVER THE THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE RING AS HE RETURNS BACK TO ZACK CRASH! HESITATION DROPKICK! RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF ZACK CRASH AS JACOB SENN ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! Zack Crash’s head hit the turnbuckle before he fell down and rolled to the outside! Jacob Senn is on his feet and he taunts to the ecstatic Miami crowd right as he turns over to see Zack starting to get his head back on straight! Jacob pumps himself up while Zack starts to get to his feet AS HE RUNS THE ROPES TOWARDS ZACK CRASH ON THE OUTSIDE!

Matt Ryder: HOLY COW! FOSBURY FLOP! A STUNNING FOSBURY FLOP BY JACOB SENN RIGHT ONTO ZACK CRASH ON THE OUTSIDE! JACOB FLUNG HIS BODY LIKE A CATAPULT TO THE OUTSIDE WITH NO REGARD TO HIS OWN HEALTH! Jacob stands on his feet and starts taunting with the excitement palpable as he turns around to grab Zack and pull him up to his feet RIGHT WHEN ZACK CRACKS A METAL COOKIE SHEET INTO HIS FACE! ZACK MUST HAVE PULLED THAT OUT FROM UNDER THE RING WHILE HE WAS DOWN! Jacob is teetering from the shot as Zack returns under the ring GRABBING A YIELD ROAD SIGN AS HE SMASHES IT RIGHT INTO HIS FACE! THE DENT IN THE METAL IS ALREADY VISIBLE FROM THAT SHOT AS JACOB SENN COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR!

Stew-O: MAN, YOU CAN ALMOST SEE JACOB SENN’S HEAD START TO SWELL FROM THAT HARD SHOT FROM THE ROAD SIGN AS ZACK CRASH IS JUST REVELING IN THIS RIGHT NOW! HE HAS THE UPPER HAND AND HE’S GOING TO DO WHAT HE NEEDS TO DO TO WIN! Zack walks over Jacob AS HE SMASHES THE ROAD SIGN ACROSS THE BODY OF JACOB REPEATEDLY! HE’S PUNISHING THIS MAN WITH THE HARSH STEEL! HOWEVER, IT’S NOT TAKING LONG FOR CRASH TO STOP AS HE LOOKS TO HAVE SOMETHING SINISTER IN MIND! Zack Crash grabs Jacob Senn by the hair as he drags him up to his feet HOOKING HIM BY HIS ARM AND LEG RIGHT AS HE LIFTS HIM IN THE AIR! OH MY LORD! FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX RIGHT ON THE TOP OF THE BARRICADE!

Matt Ryder: GREAT BROSKI! HE PUT ENOUGH FORCE IN THAT TO BREAK SOMEONE’S BACK! I DON’T EVEN KNOW IF JACOB’S GOING TO BE ABLE TO STAND AFTER THAT! Zack Crash rushes over to the referee and snatches the microphone from him! He returns back to Jacob Senn PULLING HIM BACK DOWN THE FLOOR BEFORE CRACKING THE MICROPHONE RIGHT IN HIS FACE! ZACK CRASH IS SHOWING THE VIOLENCE THAT HE CAN BRING INTO A MATCH OF THIS NATURE! HE PULLS JACOB’S FACE UP AS HE MAY BE LOOKING TO HEAR THOSE WORDS!

Zack Crash: Jacob, let’s make this easy on ourselves. Go ahead and say those two sweet words and all of this will be over with.

Jacob Senn: … How about FUCK YOU?

Stew-O: THE DEFIANT JACOB SENN SAYS NO AS ZACK CRASH SEEMS FRUSTRATED ABOUT THIS! Zack grabs Jacob by the head as he pulls him up to his feet ONLY FOR JACOB TO STRIKE BELOW THE BELT WITH THE LOW BLOW! REMEMBER, EVERYTHING IS LEGAL, INCLUDING LOW BLOWS LIKE THIS AS CRASH DROPS DOWN TO HIS KNEES FROM THE EXCRUCIATING PAIN OF THAT ONE! Jacob stands on his feet as he holds his back from that suplex earlier as he makes his way towards the ring PULLING OUT HIS SIGNATURE WEAPON! HE HAS A BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR IN HIS POSSESSION! Zack Crash is lying on his stomach on the floor, trying to get himself back to his feet, BUT JACOB SENN CRACKS THE BARBED WIRE STEEL CHAIR ON HIS SPINE! HE STRIKES IT AGAINST HIS BACK ONCE MORE! ANOTHER ONE! AGAIN! AGAIN! JACOB IS LACERATING THE FLESH RIGHT OFF THE BONE OF ZACK WITH THAT BARBED-WIRE BEING DRIVEN INTO HIM!

Matt Ryder: WE KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE NASTY COMING INTO IT, BRO! This is something that has been building for years! Jacob Senn moves Zack Crash into the steel steps as he walks across to the other side of the ring LOOKING TO STRIKE WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK INTO HIM! WAIT! ZACK JUMPS UP AND GRABS SENN AS HE THROWS HIM RIGHT AGAINST THE UNFORGIVING STEEL STEPS! JACOB IS TAKING THE MOST HELLACIOUS BEATING OF HIS CAREER RIGHT NOW!

Stew-O: JACOB SENN SCREAMS IN AGONY AS ZACK CRASH GRABS HIM AND THROWS HIM IN THE RING! Zack goes under the ring as he starts clearing stuff out BEFORE DRAGGING OUT A GLASS TABLE FROM THERE! NO WAY! WHAT DEVIOUS PLANS DOES THE KINGPIN OF OMERTA HAVE IN STORE FOR JACOB? Zack slides the glass table into the ring right before he slides back into the ring himself to join his rival while placing the table into the turnbuckle corner! Zack calls for the microphone with the referee handing it to him with him once again clutching Jacob’s head in his hands!

Zack Crash: What do you say, Senn? You want to give up?

Jacob Senn: … YOU CAN KISS MY ASS!

Matt Ryder: Zack Crash slams the fallen Jacob Senn’s head back into the canvas as Zack walks over to the other side of the ring LOOKING FOR THE SPEAR AS HE LOOKS TO SEND HIM STRAIGHT THROUGH THE GLASS TABLE! Jacob starts to fight with the canvas and is able to pull himself to his feet AS ZACK SPRINTS FULL-SPEED TO JACOB! JACOB CATCHES HIM! ZACK’S IN TROUBLE AS HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! EXPLODER SUPLEX RIGHT INTO THE GLASS TABLE AS THE TABLE EXPLODES WITH THE SHARDS FLYING ALL AROUND THE RING AND OUTSIDE ON THE FLOOR! GLASS IS ALL OVER THIS CORNER OF THE RING AS YOU CAN ALREADY SEE THE BLOOD START TO PAINT THE CANVAS FROM THE BACK REGION OF ZACK CRASH!

Stew-O: ZACK CRASH WAS JUST SENT THROUGH DESTRUCTION TO A HUGE DEGREE WITH THAT TABLE AS JACOB SENN JUST RISES TO HIS FEET TO LOOK AT THE CARNAGE THAT HAS UNFOLDED! YOU CAN SEE ZACK LITERALLY SHAKING FROM THE PAIN THAT HE HAS JUST BEEN PUT THROUGH BY GOING THROUGH THAT WRETCHED TABLE! Jacob Senn orders the referee to ask Zack Crash if he wants to quit the match while he still clutches his back from the abuse he has already been put through!

Referee: Do you want to quit, Mr. Crash?

Zack Crash: … NO! I WON’T!

Matt Ryder: ZACK CRASH HAS DENIED JACOB SENN FROM THE VICTORY! HE SAID THAT HE’S NOT GOING TO GIVE UP FROM THAT! Jacob Senn rolls out of the ring GRABBING THE BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR BEFORE MAKING HIS WAY BACK TO HIS RIVAL! WAIT! ZACK ROLLS OUT OF THE RING WHERE YOU CAN GET A CLOSER LOOK AT THE WOUNDS THAT HAVE BEEN MADE INTO HIS BACK! SMART MOVE BY THE FORMER CHAIRMAN OF EAW TO TRY AND KEEP THE SEPARATION BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM! Jacob starts to make his way to go after Zack BUT IS NAILED RIGHT IN THE STOMACH WITH A BARBED-WIRE BAT! ANOTHER INTELLECTUAL MOVE OF PULLING SOMETHING OUT FROM UNDER THE RING WHILE BAITING YOUR OPPONENT! JACOB COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR AS HE JUST TOOK A MASSIVE SHOT TO THE GUT FROM THAT BAT!

Stew-O: ZACK CRASH THROWS THE BASEBALL BAT INTO THE RING AS HE GRABS ANOTHER OBJECT FROM UNDER THE RING! WHAT’S HE PLANNING ON GRABBING RIGHT NOW? NO! NOT THIS! HE HAS ONE OF THOSE FLUORESCENT LIGHT BULB POLES! NO WAY! YOU CAN’T USE THAT IN THIS MATCH! ZACK SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING WITH THE BULB IN HIS HAND WHILE HE AIMS FOR THE HEAD OF JACOB SENN! DON’T DO IT, ZACK! THIS MAN HAS A WHOLE CAREER AHEAD OF HIM!

Matt Ryder: IS HE? WILL HE? GOOD GRACIOUS! ZACK CRASH JUST SHATTERED THAT FLUORESCENT LIGHT BULB RIGHT ON THE FACE OF JACOB SENN! THAT BULB HAS NOW TURNED INTO BITS OF GLASS THAT HAVE RIPPED HIS FLESH APART! LOOK AT THAT, STEW! BLOOD IS BEGINNING TO GUSH OUT OF JACOB’S FACE WHILE HIS FACE IS BEING DRENCHED IN THAT BLOOD! ZACK IS JUST LOVING EVERY SECOND OF THIS AS HE HAS FINALLY BROUGHT SENN TO THE POINT OF BLEEDING! HE GRABS THE MICROPHONE AND STANDS ABOVE JACOB AS HE LOOKS TO ASK HIM AGAIN!

Zack Crash: Come on now, Jacob! You’re losing a lot of blood already! Why don’t we end this already?

Jacob Senn: …. No… NO!

Stew-O: JACOB SENN STARTS SPITTING BLOOD OFF OF HIS LIPS AS HE TRIES TO MAKE OUT HIS CRIES OF DENIAL AS ZACK CRASH SLAMS THE REMAINDER OF THAT LIGHT BULB DOWN! He looks around the ring and sees his old friend in the barbed-wire baseball bat PICKING IT UP AS THE WILD EYES OF CRASH TURN TO HIS ENEMY! He stands over Jacob as he places the bat around his head AS HE REARS BACK FOR A VARIATION OF THE CRASH N’ BURN! JACOB IS HOWLING IN ANGUISH AS HE REACHES OUT TO TRY AND FIND A WAY OF ESCAPE! CRASH IS SCREAMING FOR THE REFEREE TO ASK HIM WHILE HE CONTINUES TO SCRAPE THAT BARBED-WIRE ACROSS THE ALREADY TORN FACE OF SENN!

Referee: Do you want to quit, Senn? Do you want to quit this match?

Jacob Senn: AAAAHHHH! NO! I WON’T DO IT! AAAAHHHH!

Matt Ryder: JACOB SENN WILL NOT DIE, BUT ZACK CRASH WILL NOT RELENT FROM THE HOLD! HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT HIS OPPONENT HAS NO CHOICE IN THIS MATTER! JACOB’S FADING! HE CAN’T STAY CONSCIOUS FOR MUCH LONGER WITH THE AMOUNT OF BLOOD HE’S ALREADY LOST! BUT CRASH RELEASES HIM! HE KNOWS THAT IF SENN PASSES OUT, THIS MATCH WILL CONTINUE AS HE NEEDS TO SAY HE QUITS TO END IT! He grabs Jacob by the head as he drags him over to the ropes TYING HIS ARMS INTO THE ROPES AS HE HAS SOMETHING IN MIND!

Stew-O: Zack Crash walks out of the ring while Jacob Senn tries to escape the ropes to failure as Zack goes towards his jacket PULLING OUT HIS HALL OF FAME RING! ZACK CRASH WAS INDUCTED INTO THE HALL OF FAME THIS PAST THURSDAY! WHAT THE HELL DOES ZACK CRASH PLAN TO DO WITH THAT? He slides it on his finger before returning back into the ring to his bitter rival POUNDING HIS FIST THE LACERATIONS ON JACOB’S FACE WITH THAT HALL OF FAME RIGHT BEING THE FOCAL POINT OF THE PUNCH! REPEATED STRIKES TO THE SKULL AS ZACK CALLS FOR THE REFEREE!

Zack Crash: THIS IS THE CLOSEST YOU WILL EVER GET TO A HALL OF FAME RING, JACOB! YOU WILL NEVER REACH THE LEVEL I HAVE! NOW… DO… YOU… QUIT???

Jacob Senn: I… I… — FUCK YOU, YOU DISGRACE!

Matt Ryder: OH GOSH! I’M ABOUT TO HURL! JACOB SENN JUST SPIT A HUGE AMOUNT OF BLOOD INTO THE FACE OF ZACK CRASH! ZACK’S ABOUT TO GO IN… BUT HE JUST LAUGHS? HE WIPES THE BLOOD OFF OF HIS FACE WHILE HE IS JUST CACKLING A STORM AS HE GOES BACK TO HIS BARBED-WIRE BAT! HE STRIKES JACOB IN THE STOMACH WITH THE BAT! AGAIN! ANOTHER ONE! HE CONTINUES TORTURING THE PUNISHER AS HE WANTS HIM TO SIMPLY BEG HIM TO STOP THIS! THE NEW MIAMI STADIUM IS LOOKING IN JUST SHEER HORROR AT THIS DISPLAY! ZACK CALLS THE REFEREE OVER WITH THE MICROPHONE AGAIN!

Zack Crash: GIVE IT UP, JACOB! YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BEAT ME TONIGHT! QUIT!

Jacob Senn: NO! I’M… NOT… GIVING… YOU… THE SATISFACTION!

Stew-O: ZACK CRASH IS LIVID AS HE CHUNKS THE BARBED-WIRE BASEBALL BAT AWAY AS HE IS JUST FURIOUS THAT JACOB SENN WILL NOT GO DOWN! HE HAS TRIED ALMOST EVERYTHING I COULD THINK OF TO MAKE HIM QUIT! Zack stomps towards the ropes as he goes to the outside and walks over to the steel steps FLIPPING THE TOP PART OF THE STEPS OVER TO REVEAL A CLOTH BAG THAT WAS SITTING UNDER IT! OH GOD! WHAT IS THIS? WHAT DOES ZACK CRASH HAVE PLANNED RIGHT NOW? Zack enters back into the ring as he walks to the center of the ring POURING THE CONTENTS OF THE BAG ONTO THE FLOOR!

Matt Ryder: IT’S THUMBTACKS! THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF THUMBTACKS HAVE NOW COVERED THE CENTER OF THE RING! ZACK CRASH CALL SCHEDULED SOME EXTREME ACUPUNCTURE FOR JACOB SENN TONIGHT! Zack returns over to Jacob LAYING INTO HIM WITH MORE SHOTS TO THE HEAD WITH HIS FIST WHILE THE HALL OF FAME RING IS ON IT BEFORE RELEASING HIM FROM THE ROPES! Zack drags Jacob towards the center of the ring HOOKING HIS ARMS FROM BEHIND! HE’S GOING TO CHAOS REIGNS HIM INTO THE THUMBTACKS! THIS IS THE MOVE THAT PUT JACOB SENN ON THE SHELF FOR FOUR MONTHS LAST TIME!

Stew-O: CHAOS REIGNS! HE JUST PLANTED JACOB’S FACE RIGHT INTO THOSE THUMBTACKS! HE HAS JUST MUTILATED JACOB’S FACE WITH THAT FULL NELSON FACEBUSTER RIGHT INTO THE THUMBTACKS! THERE HAS TO BE COUNTLESS THUMBTACKS NOW IN JACOB’S FACE! Zack Crash stands back to his feet as he grabs the microphone back from the referee!

Zack Crash: I don’t know if you can hear me Jacob, and quite frankly, I don’t care! If you want me to stop, tell me you quit this match!

Jacob Senn: …

Matt Ryder: JACOB SENN IS SILENT! I DON’T THINK HE CAN HEAR WHAT ZACK CRASH IS SAYING! WE MIGHT NEED TO GET A MEDIC OUT HERE! Zack throws the microphone back to the referee as he goes to the outside! He goes over to the timekeeper’s area, grabbing a couple bottles of water while returning to the ring! He drops one as he pops the other one open and starts pouring it over Jacob! HE MIGHT BE TRYING TO BRING JACOB BACK FROM THE DEAD!

Stew-O: You can see Jacob Senn shuffling around while trying to gasp for air AS ZACK CRASH NOTICE THIS AND THROWS THE BOTTLE ASIDE AS HE PULLS HIM BACK UP! WAIT! WAIT! JACOB SENN IS SHOWING SOME FIGHT AGAINST ZACK CRASH! HE COULD ESCAPE FROM WHAT COULD TRULY BE THE END! PELÉ KICK! JACOB FOUGHT HIS WAY OUT OF HIS GRASP AND STRUCK HIM WITH THE PELÉ KICK! CRASH IS DAZED WHILE JACOB ROLLS UP TO HIS FEET AS HE STARES AT HIM! HE LIFTS HIS ARMS UP IN AN X-SHAPE! HE’S THROWING UP THE X AS THE MIAMI FANS ARE CLAMORING FOR IT! WEAPON X!

Matt Ryder: NO! NO! NO! STUNNER! STUNNER! JACOB SENN HAS JUST STUNNED THE BOOTS OFF OF ZACK CRASH! HE JUST LAID HIM OUT WITH THAT WEAPON X! ZACK HAS TO BE OUT COLD, BUT HOW’S HE GOING TO ANSWER THE REFEREE WHEN SENN CALLS FOR HIM? Jacob hobbles over to the ropes before stepping outside the ring to go under the ring GRABBING HIS OWN LIGHT POLE! HE INTENDS TO GET SOME RETRIBUTION FOR WHAT ZACK CRASH DID TO HIM EARLIER!

Stew-O: Jacob Senn rolls back into the ring as he uses the light pole to pull himself back to his feet right before he calls for Zack Crash to get to his feet! Zack starts crawling his way up to his feet while feeling the effects of Weapon X RIGHT AS JACOB BUSTS THE LIGHT BULB POLE RIGHT IN HIS FACE! JACOB HAS REPAID ZACK IN FULL FROM EARLIER WITH BLOOD GUSHING FROM HEAD AS THE CRIMSON MASK IS BEING DONNED BY HIM! IT’S JUST FLOWING RIGHT OUT OF ZACK LIKE A WATERFALL! JACOB DROPS THE REMAINS OF THE LIGHT POLE AS HE SLAPS HIM IN THE FACE TO KEEP AWAKE AND CALLS FOR THE REFEREE TO ASK HIM IF HE WANTS TO QUIT!

Referee: Do you want to quit, Mr. Crash?

Zack Crash: GET AWAY FOR ME, YOU PEASANT! I’M NOT GOING OUT LIKE THIS!

Matt Ryder: THAT A MAN, ZACK CRASH! JACOB SENN ISN’T GOING TO TAKE YOU DOWN! Zack starts to try and power his way back to his feet, stumbling a bit with each stride, as Jacob turns him around JUMPING ON HIS SHOULDERS TO THROW HIM BACKWARDS INTO THE THUMBTACKS WITH THE REVERSE HURRICANRANA! OH NO! ALL OF THOSE THUMBTACKS DRIVEN INTO THE SKIN OF ZACK! IT’S BARBARIC! IT’S SAVAGE! Jacob isn’t going to end it that easily while he goes out to the apron and climbs up the turnbuckle! What’s he up to?

Stew-O: ZACK CRASH IS TRYING TO PICK HIMSELF UP FROM THE THUMBTACKS, BUT JACOB SENN IS ALREADY LINING HIM UP FOR THE FINISHING BLOW! HE DOES THE GUN POINT AS HIS EYES ARE STARTING TO LOOK LIKE THE DRIED BLOOD THAT STAINS HIS FACE! Zack starts push his way to his feet AS JACOB LEAPS FROM THE TOP ROPE! NO WAY! NO WAY IS HE DOING THIS! DIVING HARMONIC DIVERGENCE INTO THE THUMBTACKS! HE JUST DID A DIVING CURB STOMP FORCING ZACK’S FACE STRAIGHT INTO THOSE THUMBTACKS EVEN FURTHER! THE REFEREE STARTS MAKING HIS WAY TOWARDS ZACK TO ASK IF HE GIVES UP!

Matt Ryder: WHAT THE HELL? JACOB SENN STOPS THE REFEREE AS HE ISN’T READY BEFORE HE DRAGS HIM OUT OF THE THUMBTACKS! WHAT’S HE GOING TO DO TO THIS POOR MAN? Jacob walks over and grabs the barbed-wire steel chair and the bottle of water Zack dropped before returning to him! He pours the bottle of water of Zack to wake him up before standing on his legs as he places the chair on his back PULLING ZACK BACK AS HE LOCKS HIM INTO THE GRIM MEMENTO! HE HAS THE SURFBOARD DRAGON SLEEPER APPLIED ON ZACK WITH JACOB BENDING HIM ON THE BARBED-WIRE AND THE STEEL OF THE CHAIR! THIS HAS TO BE AN EXCRUCIATINGLY PAINFUL PLACE TO BE IN AND I’M PRAYING FOR MY BOY ZACK TO GET OUT OF THIS PREDICAMENT!

Stew-O: YOU MIGHT, BUT THE RAGE THAT HAS BEEN BUILDING INSIDE JACOB SENN WILL MOST LIKELY NOT ALLOW THAT! HE’S GOING TO KEEP THIS IN NO MATTER IF ZACK PASSES OUT OF THE HOLD! HE’S GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT HE CAN TAKE HIM OUT OF THIS MATCH FOR GOOD! HE’S WRENCHING BACK ON THE HOLD AS THE REFEREE IS STANDING NEAR THEM BOTH AS HE HOLDS THE MICROPHONE NEAR THEM!

Jacob Senn: GIVE UP, YOU BASTARD! QUIT THIS MATCH RIGHT NOW!

Referee: Do you want to quit, Mr. Crash?

Zack Crash: I… I… I… I QUIT! I QUIT!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Punisher” by Fire and Blood plays in the background as Jacob Senn collapses to the floor while Zack Crash falls to his side as Jacob rolls over and tries to crawl up to his feet.)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… JAACCCOOOOBBBBB SEEENNNNNNNNN!!!

Stew-O: THERE IT IS! THE THREE-YEAR SAGA BETWEEN JACOB SENN AND ZACK CRASH HAS FINALLY COME TO AN VIOLENT END! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU HAVE WATCHED ONE OF THE MOST BRUTAL MATCHES THAT WE’VE EVER BEEN A PART OF! I THINK THIS VICTORY HAS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST SATISFYING VICTORIES IN JACOB SENN’S CAREER!

Matt Ryder: I do have to admit that it took a lot of resilience and willpower from Jacob Senn tonight to survive the destruction and chaos that Zack Crash had put him through! Poor Crash… he lost Scott Oasis, The World Heavyweight Championship, and now he was forced to say “I Quit” in this match! I have to feel for him tonight, Stew!

Stew-O: Zack Crash has gotten what he deserved, in my personal opinion. He took out my commentary colleague, Deadprez, he has made those who weren’t a part of Omerta go through torturous ordeals, but tonight we got justice thanks to Jacob Senn! Congratulations, Jacob!

(Jacob Senn is barely able to stand while lumbering back-and-forth on the ring as he raises his arms with the New Miami Stadium exploding in ovation. He collapses to the floor as he rolls out to make his departure while Zack Crash squirms around the ring in pure agony from the brutal match that we have just witnessed.)

(We cut to the backstage area as Flannery McCoy is seen on set with a microphone hand and a smile on her face.)

Flannery McCoy: Wow! Pain For Pride has been absolutely AMAZING so far and we are currently going strong into the final day of this three day event! We’ve seen many great matches and there are still a few more to go, all of them highly anticipated ; perhaps one of the most anticipated of all being The Vixens Championship match. The ongoing feud between Aria Jaxon and The Heart Break Gal appears to be reaching it’s final stop and right now I have the pleasure of interviewing the champion herself: Aria!

(Aria Jaxon enters the scene to a huge pop from the crowd in the background as they watch from the titantron.)

Flannery McCoy: Now Aria, you are just a little bit away from your very first Pain For Pride match and the stakes are high as your newly won Vixens title is on the line. Are there any nerves as you head into this contest?

Aria: No nerves, just a really insane desire to prove myself. This is my first championship defense, and it’ll be the first in a long line of successful defenses. The stakes are high, but high stakes are what make champions. The fact that I’m about to go out there and thrive under pressure will tell any doubters everything they need to know about me. I went through hell and high water to become Vixens Champion, and anyone standing in front of me is just begging to get turned into a statistic.

Flannery McCoy: Well, speaking of people standing in front of you, while you are entering a Pain For Pride ring for the first time, your opponent Heart Break Gal is a person who as she said “knows Pain For Pride like the back of her hand”. Do you at all believe experience matters in a contest like this? How confident are you in getting the job done here tonight against a game veteran like HBG?

Aria: Am I unfamiliar with Pain for Pride? Yes. Am I unfamiliar with what it feels like to beat HBG? No. Not at all. I don’t care how many trips she’s made to the Show of Shows. If that’s what she wants to lean on to try and widen this supposed gap between the two of us, then so be it, but she’s focusing on trivial shit. She’s looking back at her storied past thinking she can use it to trump my bright future, but nah. HBG might’ve made history last year, becoming one-half of the Tag Team Champions, but she won’t have the same luck this time around. She’s challenging for the wrong gold this year. I’ve got a death grip on it, and she’s not woman enough to take it from me.

Flannery McCoy: Alright, with all of that said, any last words for HBG before your match?

Aria: HBG, the truth of the matter is, you had your chance to keep this belt outta my grasp, and you didn’t. You did everything you could to stack the deck against me. You gave it your best shot. For days, you talked about how you were gonna break me and become a four-time Vixens Champion, and you failed. There’s no gray area there. It’s very cut and dry. I beat you when it mattered, and I’m gonna do the same tonight. You’ve called me a lotta things: lucky, a flash in the pain, favored, fast-tracked. It’s all speculation on your part. You better get used to calling me champion, because that’s gonna ring true for a LONG time.

(With those words, Aria goes to take her leave.)

Flannery McCoy: Thank you for your time.

(A video package appears on the screen highlighting the verbal and physical clashes by TLA and Samurai over the past several weeks on Showdown, including Samurai initially refusing to accept a match for the Interwire Championship, finally accepting it before blindsiding TLA and attacking him backstage, TLA playing a pre-taped recording of himself on the Showdown before PFP before returning the favor and attacking Samurai from behind himself)

Ring Announcer: The following match is scheduled for one fall… And is for the INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIPPPP…

(The camera pans to the titantron where TLA’s theme “Ambitionz Az A Ridah” by Tupac blares over the speakers as highlights of TLA are shown. He then makes his entrance to a huge crowd reaction as fans have come out in droves to show their support for TLA. Camera pans to “Sexual Panther” and “TLA FOR NEW INTERWIRE CHAMPION” signs in the audience as TLA is shown wearing ring gear sporting the words “SEXUAL PANTHER 2016” on it)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Miami, Florida… Weighing in earlier today at 205 pounds… “THE SEXUAL PANTHER” T! L! A!

Mercer: You can see the confidence in TLA’s walk as he strolls on into the ring with the heart of a champion. TLA is looking to claim that Interwire Championship and finally drag Samurai off of his back. TLA’s getting that homeboy hookup in Miami tonight!

Masters: He’s a scrub! Samurai has been the rightful owner of that title for some time now… Truthfully, I don’t even know how TLA got a match! He goaded Samurai into it! Disgraceful.

(Camera pans back to the titantron where “Generator” by Doomtree plays as The Mexican Samurai walks down the ring to deafening boos from the capacity crowd in New Miami Stadium. Samurai is in absolutely no hurry at all while cockily strutting down the ring wearing trunks that say “CALIFORNIA MADE” with no hint of his hispanic heritage displayed anywhere. TLA and Samurai stare each other down as Samurai hands his Interwire Championship over and walks into the ring)

Masters: And here’s Samurai now, my personal pick to win this match, a guy that has broken barriers and shattered ceilings and done pretty much all you can ask of him throughout his championship reign!

Mercer: Of course, who can forget Samurai going on national television and remarking that “his” Mexican is different from TLA’s Mexican? Samurai might as well be the hispanic equivalent of an Uncle Tom.

Masters: Umm…

Mercer: What? I just heard his Uncle was named Tom. Got it confused.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Masters: The Interwire showdown is underway as TLA and Samurai both stare in each others’ eyes ready to clash! Samurai starts off the match by charging at TLA with a running big boot, but TLA sidesteps the boot attempt and connects with a quick neckbreaker on the rebound! TLA has the hot hand in this match early, and he’s not wasting any time, he’s pounding his boot into the chest of Mexican Samurai, he’s giving him the business! TLA stomps over Mexican Samurai as if he were garbage! These two have been heated in recent weeks, both of them blindsiding each other! That just goes to show how much the Interwire Championship means to these two. TLA quickly stands Samurai up to his feet, but Samurai powers out of the hold, pummeling lefts and rights into the jaw of TLA that send him staggering back against the ropes. Samurai charges against the ropes and attempts to clothesline TLA over, but TLA pulls the top rope down in the nick of time and sends Samurai flying over the top rope! I guess it’s a good thing Samurai didn’t compete in the Grand Rampage this year if that was going to be the result. TLA dashes off the other end of the ropes and he’s thinking big, he throws caution to the wind and goes for the suicide dive straight into the middle rope! BUT SAMURAI CAUGHT HIM AND THREW TLA BACK-FIRST INTO THE ANNOUNCER’S TABLE! LOOK AT THE HIS BACK, I THINK I SEE A GASH! TLA IS HOLDING HIS BACK IN PAIN. EARLY ON, SAMURAI HAS AN ADVANTAGE BUT THERE’S NO TELLING HOW QUICKLY TLA COULD GET BACK IN THIS IF AT ALL!

Mercer: No gash after all, but you can see a welt on TLA’s back! Samurai regroups and regains some of his breath and now he takes the cover off the table, he’s got something big in mind, Masters! Samurai takes the top off the table, now he’s taking the monitors off, and he’s slamming TLA’s head into the announcer’s table repeatedly! This is how you chop an opponent down. You take the willpower out of them with those head shots, those types of injures you don’t want to mess with. Samurai is showing no remorse, pounding TLA’s skull into the announce table, but what’s this?! Samurai just dragged TLA and threw him back inside the ring! I guess Samurai debated the high-risk, high-reward nature of that maneuver he may have been thinking about executing on the outside of the ring and thought better of it. TLA is trying to get back up to his feet before Samurai enters the ring again, but Samurai’s back in first! TLA is groggy, his back is turned on Samurai, and now Samurai comes rifling behind him with a bulldog that appeared to choke TLA out a little as he landed against the ropes instead of face-first on the mat! Perhaps some innovation by Samurai, or maybe just luck?

Masters: It doesn’t matter, it happened! Samurai is yelling at TLA to get up after executing that inverted bulldog maneuver, and now he’s doing the dirty work himself, dragging TLA to his feet, smacking him silly! Samurai is laying in the slaps like TLA’s face is a magnet for his hand right now!

Mercer: Of course Samurai is slapping TLA. Have you seen the way he walks to the ring? Guy is fruity as all hell.

Masters: I don’t know, I guess I haven’t been quite as observant as you, but all I’ve seen is a champion who has protected his Interwire Title at any costs and looks to do the same here and now in the spotlight of Pain for Pride! Right on cue, Samurai with a vicious punch to the side of TLA’s head and now he demonstrates some amazing power and drags TLA back up to his feet! Samurai with another slap to the chest of TLA! Samurai whips TLA off the ropes and sets him for a back body drop, but Samurai telegraphed it! TLA with a kick to the face of Mexican Samurai on the rebound! And now TLA springs off the ropes, attempting a diving crossbody on Samurai! NO! SAMURAI CATCHES HIM IN MID-AIR! FALLING POWERSLAM BY MEXICAN SAMURAI CONNECTS AS I JUST HEARD ONE OF THE LOUDEST THUDS THROUGHOUT ALL OF PFP AS TLA HIT THAT MAT! SAMURAI WITH THE COVER!

Ref: ONEEEEEE….. TWOOOOOOO…

Mercer: KICKOUT BY TLA AT TWO! That’s a move that could have ended so many other elitists, but TLA is sticking this one out! Samurai’s smacking his hands together demanding a quicker count from the referee, but that’s not going to do anything, he’s got to keep pounding away at TLA! Samurai now positions TLA and has wrenched in a grounded headlock! TLA could pass out any moment from that headlock, but the crowd is hyping him up! The crowd is ROARING for TLA as he tries with all his might to rise to his feet! Samurai’s rearing back on that headlock, but TLA’s fighting, TLA’s squirming around and now he has risen to his feet! TLA WITH REPEATED ELBOWS TO THE GUT OF MEXICAN SAMURAI, FORCING HIM TO BREAK THE HEADLOCK AS THEY’RE BOTH ON THEIR FEET! TLA KICKS SAMURAI IN THE GROIN, HE CHARGES OFF THE ROPES! RUNNING SPINNING WHEEL KICK ON SAMURAI! NO! SAMURAI DUCKS UNDER THE KICK AND CONNECTS WITH AN ENZUIGIRI RIGHT AS TLA TURNS AROUND! SAMURAI HAS REGAINED CONTROL IN THIS MATCH, BUT TLA IS PUSHING THE ENVELOPE RIGHT NOW! HOW MUCH LONGER CAN SAMURAI CONTAIN THIS MAN?!

Masters: Samurai is honing in on him right now as he unloads with a flurry of elbow drops to the chest of TLA! He’s trying to weaken this man! Samurai drags TLA’s body in the middle of the ring and now he’s staring at the turnbuckle and walking over and out on the ring apron! He’s climbing up to the top rope! Could Samurai be trying to end this match early?! Samurai is on the third rung of the ropes, you know what that means! SAMURAI LEAPS! SAMURAI STAB! SAMURAI STAB!

Mercer: NO!!! NO!!! TLA GOT OUT OF THE WAY WITH LITTLE TO NO TIME TO SPARE, BUT SAMURAI JUST LANDED ON HIS FEET! TLA FROM BEHIND SAMURAI WITH THE ROLL-UP, HE’S GOT THE TIGHTS!

Ref: ONEEEEEEE… TWOOOOOO…. THRRRRR——

——

Masters: SAMURAI WITH THE KICKOUT! AN EXTREMELY CLOSE NEAR-FALL RIGHT THERE FOR TLA! HE ALMOST BECAME THE NEW INTERWIRE CHAMPION, BUT SAMURAI DID JUST ENOUGH TO POWER OUT OF IT AND THIS IS STILL A MATCH YET! TLA AND SAMURAI BOTH RISE TO THEIR FEET AT THE SAME TIME! TWEAK TO THE EYE OF SAMURAI AND NOW SAMURAI FALLS BACK! TLA FROM BEHIND! YOU’RE DONE! YOU’RE DONE! THE YOU’RE DONE CONNECTS ON MEXICAN SAMURAI AND TLA IS GAINING SOME TRACTION RIGHT NOW! TLA IS FIRED UP AND NOW HE’S TAKING A CLIMB UP TO THE ROPES OF HIS OWN! WHAT COULD HE BE THINKING RIGHT HERE?!

Mercer: TLA IS ON THE SECOND RUNG OF THE ROPES, HE’S MEASURING THE FALL FROM THE TOP TO THE GROUND, AND NOW HE’S ON THE TOP ROPE! WHAT THE HELL?! TLA IS HESITATING, HE’S NOT LEAPING YET! COULD IT BE HE WANTS TO GO BACK IN THE RING AND DO MORE DAMAGE TO THE MEXICAN SAMURAI?! NO MORE TIME! NO MORE TIME! HERE COMES SAMURAI CHARGING UP THE ROPES LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL! SUPERPLEX! SUPERPLEX! NO! NO! SAMURAI IS ON THE SECOND RUNG OF THE ROPES, TLA IS ON THE THIRD, BUT NEITHER IS ABLE TO OUTMUSCLE THE OTHER AND THEY’RE HEADBUTTING EACH OTHER! A HEADBUTT FROM TLA! A HEADBUTT FROM SAMURAI! HEADBUTT FROM TLA! HEADBUTT FROM SAMURAI! THEY’RE EXCHANGING HEADBUTTS WITH NEITHER ELITIST WILLING TO RELENT THEIR POSITION! SAMURAI HOOKS HIS ARM OVER TLA, AND HE’S GOING FOR THAT SUPLEX, BUT TLA JUST ISN’T BUDGING, MASTERS! HE’S GOING NOWHERE! AND NOW TLA’S TRYING TO TAKE SAMURAI UP! JESUS CHRIST, HE’S TRYING TO SUPERPLEX HIM ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! IT CAN’T BE! IT CAN’T BE! SUPERPLEX ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! SAMURAI IS BROKEN IN HALF!

Mercer: A DEVASTATING, CRUSHING MOVE SENDS SAMURAI CRASHING THROUGH TABLE ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT TLA TOOK A PRETTY NASTY FALL HIMSELF! THE CROWD CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT THEY JUST SAW. IT LOOKED LIKE SAMURAI WAS GAINING THE UPPER-HAND AFTER HE PROPELLED HIMSELF UP THE ROPES TO CATCH TLA BEFORE HE LEAPT DOWNWARD, BUT TLA PULLED OFF ONE OF THE CRAFTIEST, MOST CUTTING-EDGE REVERSALS I’VE EVER SEEN JUST NOW! IT’S RUBBLE DOWN THERE, THE WIRES ARE KNOTTED UP, THE CAMERAS ARE BROKEN, AND NEITHER SAMURAI NOR TLA HAS MOVED! THE REFEREE BEGINS HIS COUNT…

Masters: NOT LIKE THIS! NOT LIKE THIS! THE MATCH JUST CAN’T END THIS WAY, THEY’VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING!

SEVENNNNNNNN

Mercer: TLA IS STIRRING, TLA’S GETTING BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND HE KNOWS HE CAN’T WIN THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP BY COUNTOUT! TLA DRAGS HIMSELF UP USING THE NEARBY BARRICADE AS LEVERAGE, SAMURAI STILL HASN’T MOVED A MUSCLE AND ONE HAS TO WONDER IF THAT’S STRATEGIC ON HIS PART?! SAMURAI KNOWS THE IMPLICATIONS!

EIIIIIIIIIGHTTTTTTTTTTTT

Masters: TLA DRAGS SAMURAI UP TO HIS FEET, BUT THEY’RE A LITTLE FURTHER FROM THE RING THAN YOU’D LIKE THEM TO BE TO SECURE THIS MATCH!

NINEEEEEEEEEEEEE

TTTTTTT——

Mercer: DID THEY GET INTO THE RING IN TIME?!

Masters: THE REFEREE IS SAYING THEY DID! THE REFEREE IS SAYING THEY GOT INTO THE RING IN TIME AS TLA THREW SAMURAI’S LIFELESS BODY INTO THE RING WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY SLIDING BACK IN THE RING! THIS IS STILL A MATCH! THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

Mercer: AND NOW TLA COVERS SAMURAI! TLA WITH THE QUICK COVER!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Masters: NO! NO! ROPE BREAK! THE REFEREE COUNTED TO THREE, BUT HE WAVED IT OFF AFTER SEEING SAMURAI’S FOOT UNDER THE ROPE! THIS MATCH IS STILL ON. I’M ASTOUNDED AT HOW SAMURAI HAS BEEN ABLE TO SURVIVE SO MUCH PUNISHMENT THROUGHOUT HIS INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN AND IT JUST CONTINUES, MAN! TLA IS IN UTTER DISBELIEF RIGHT NOW, ASKING THE REFEREE IF THE COUNT WAS THREE! GET YOUR HEAD OUTTA YOUR ASS AND GO BACK ON THE OFFENSIVE!

Mercer: Whoa, Masters. Vulgar language.

Masters: Don’t act like you haven’t done it before! TLA and Samurai are both rising to their feet now, but Samurai is clearly not in any kind of condition to compete! Any other man would give up right now, but he’s got the heart of a champion and it’s showing in spades right now. TLA whips Samurai off the ropes and he’s attempting a back body drop of his own, but SAMURAI ON PURE INSTINCT ALONE SLINGSHOTS INTO TLA AND CONNECTS WITH THE FLYING FOREARM INTO THE SKULL OF THE SEXUAL PANTHER! THEY’RE BOTH DOWN ON THE GROUND NOW, AND IT’S TURNED INTO ANYONE’S BALLGAME?! WHOEVER GETS UP FIRST MAY ULTIMATELY DECIDE THE OUTCOME OF THE MATCH! TLA IS STIRRING, HE’S USING THE ROPES TO GET UP TO HIS FEET… SAMURAI WITH A KIP-UP! SAMURAI WITH A BEAUTIFUL KIP-UP AND TLA HAS NO IDEA AS HE TURNS AROUND AND IS MET BY A BOOT INTO HIS CHEST! SAMURAI HOOKS HIS ARM AROUND TLA’S HEAD! MEXICAN MAELSTROM! THE 360 SPINNING BRAINBUSTER HE CALLS THE MEXICAN MAELSTROM! TLA IS UP AND HE JUST GOT PLANTED ON HIS HEAD! SAMURAI ABSOLUTELY FINISHED HIM RIGHT THERE! TLA HAS TO BE DONE!

Mercer: SAMURAI CAN’T QUITE GET THE COVER! THAT MEXICAN MAELSTROM BRAINBUSTER TOOK ALMOST ALL OF THE ENERGY OUT OF HIM, HE’S TAKING HIS SWEET TIME TO CRAWL OVER TO TLA AND PIN HIM… AND SAMURAI WITH A SHOULDER OVER TLA! THIS IS IT!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOOO…. THRRRRRRR——

Masters: TLA WITH AN AMAZING KICKOUT! TLA WITH A KICKOUT AFTER THAT MEXICAN MAELSTROM! I DON’T KNOW HOW HE DID IT, MERCER, BUT TLA DID IT! TLA WITH THE KICKOUT AND YOU CAN TELL FROM THE FLABBERGASTED EXPRESSION ON SAMURAI’S FACE THAT HE DIDN’T EXPECT THAT AT ALL! HE THOUGHT THIS MATCH WAS OVER AND DONE WITH, BUT IT CONTINUES! SAMURAI THROUGH SHEER WILLPOWER FORCES HIS WAY BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AND NOW HE’S GOING TO THE ROPES FOR A SECOND TIME! COULD SAMURAI HAVE THE DREADED SAMURAI STAB IN MIND FOR A SECOND TIME?!

Mercer: SAMURAI CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPES AND TLA IS PERFECTLY POSITIONED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING TO TAKE THE SAMURAI STAB! AND THE MEXICAN SAMURAI LEAPS!!!

Masters: TLA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! NO, NO! WHAT?! TLA JUST SLIGHTLY ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY AND MANEUVERED THE SAMURAI STAB INTO AN ANKLE LOCK! ANKLE LOCK SUBMISSION APPLIED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, BUT TLA IS STILL TOO WEAK AFTER TAKING THAT MEXICAN MAELSTROM TO REAR BACK HIS GRIP ON THE SUBMISSION MANEUVER! SAMURAI CONTORTS HIS BODY OVER AND USES HIS LEG STRENGTH TO SEND TLA BACK AGAINST THE ROPES! TLA DARTS OFF OF THEM AS SAMURAI IS UP TO HIS FEET… CLOTHESLINE ON TLA! NOBODY’S HOME!

INCREDIBLE KICKOUT BY THE CURRENT EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION, AND I GOTTA TELL YA, WITH THE PERFORMANCE HE’S PUT ON TONIGHT YOU CAN TELL HE DOESN’T WANT TO BECOME THE FORMER INTERWIRE CHAMPION ANY TIME SOON! TLA AND SAMURAI ARE BOTH SLOWLY BACK UP TO THEIR FEET, AND NOW THEY’RE EXCHANGING PUNCHES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! THESE TWO MEN AREN’T WRESTLERS — THEY’RE GLADIATORS! SAMURAI HAS GAINED THE ADVANTAGE, HE’S EXECUTING PUNCH AFTER PUNCH, KNIFE EDGE CHOP AFTER CHOP! TLA IS BACKED UP AGAINST THE ROPES AND NOW SAMURAI WHIPS HIM OFF THEM AGAIN!

THREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Ambitionz Az A Ridah” blares over the speakers as TLA is handed the Interwire Championship and his hand raised by the referee. Samurai lays motionless in the ring, regaining his senses after TLA leaves the ring with his newly won title and in disbelief, demanding the match be restarted and kicking chairs)

Ring Announcer: The winner of this match and NEWWWWWWWWWWWW… EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!!!!!!!!… TTTTTTT!!!…. LLLLLLLLL!!!… AAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

Mercer: TLA’S DONE IT! TLA’S WON THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP AND CONQUERED THE MEXICAN SAMURAI! WHAT A STAR-STUDDED PERFORMANCE FROM TLA TONIGHT, HE GOES HOME WITH THE GOLD AND SAMURAI IS LEFT KICKING CHAIRS AND CRYING FOUL ABOUT THE MATCH! AN INCREDIBLE SHOWING BY THESE TWO SAVE FOR SAMURAI’S HISSY FIT. HATS OFF TO TLA! HOW’D YOUR “PERSONAL PICK TO WIN THE MATCH” GO, MASTERS?!

Masters: Don’t remind me.

(Several scantily clad thirsty-looking women appear at the side of the stage in a lowrider as TLA is walking up it celebrating and high-fiving fans. TLA gets in the vehicle as they drive out of the picture with him in the vehicle celebrating with them and his newly won Interwire Championship. Samurai is kicking the steel steps and yelling unintelligible words)

Mercer: THEY ALL WANT A PIECE OF SEXUAL PANTHER! YES THEY DO! TLA WINS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP AND HE HAS A LOT TO BE HAPPY ABOUT AS HE RIDES HOME TONIGHT!

(The camera pans towards the backstage area as Padrone Orthaeus makes his grand appearance, having a clear smile on his face while having his arms behind his back. He begins to whistle some classic Greek “tunes” from under his breath, while taking a couple of glances at the locker room door of the Spartan Assailant himself, Rhaegar.)

Padrone: What is this aura….

(Padrone turns his head multiple times, looking around as he starts to feel a bit nervous. All that he sees are several EAW employees attending to their duties. Padrone lets off a gentle sigh, as he resumes back to whistling.)

Padrone: ♫ The light….of….the…

(The lights immediately burn off across the backstage area.)

???: Oh no! The backstage light of tonight’s Pain For Pride event have died, LIVE here on the EAW Network, the biggest night ever…

(The voice is identified to be El Landerson over in the darkness.)

Padrone: TURN ON THE (CENSORED) LIGHTS!

El Landerson: But old man, it is way past my—

Padrone: PUT THEM ON NOW……

El Landerson: Sir, yes sir.

(Several switching noises can be heard as El Landerson randomly flips on the backstage buttons, trying to turn back the lights on. Suddenly, several sprinkling noises start to make way.)

Padrone: What the…….TURN OFF THE WATER SPRINK…..LERS, YOU IDIOT!

El Landerson: RUN…..OFF……AND GET A QUARTER? OKAY MISTER PADRONE ORTHAEUS…

(El Landerson can be heard running off across the backstage area, screaming “QUARTER” up and down and around. Padrone Orthaeus is still getting soaked in water, as he screams in agony over what is taking place.)

???: There…there….

(A small, golden beam of light can be seen within the distance, as it slowly approaches the half-terrified Padrone Orthaeus.)

Padrone: Who the hell are you……

(The light continues to be approaching towards Padrone, as the light reveals his scared-to-death face of Padrone’s face, trying to see clearly though the light.)

Padrone: RHAEGAR…….OPEN THE DOOR! OPEN THE DOOR!

(Padrone takes one huge gulp, as he throws away his walking stick and switches his pose to a fighting position. He takes one menacing look at the light, before it reveals Ventura, alongside a dozen members of the Holy Brigade surrounding him.)

Padrone: You…..

Ventura -with the most nonchalant voice ever-: Hello, Padrone.

(Ventura is shown lifting up his golden lantern, as the light reveals his attire from back in his wrestling days, the white and golden long tunic, sandals, while holding his signature symbolic item…an hourglass.)

Padrone: You have no business being here. You are not going to be the one to put Rhaegar into another losing—

The Holy Brigade: Caster Oh Caster, deliver this dream…

(Padrone makes a disgusted look, as he gazes over the Holy Brigade chanting towards Ventura. He continues to keep his gentle smile upon his face, as he slowly and steadily begins to fade away.)

Ventura: Be wary of yourself, Padrone. Don’t make the wrong decision here tonight. Let my brother handle out his own resolve. If you even think about trying to mess something up for him here tonight, well, you will truly be set upon an infinite dream…

The Holy Brigade: Caster Oh Caster, deliver this dream upon me….

(HAAAA……….….HUUU)

(The golden lantern is immediately dimmed off, as the entire backstage area resumes to being quiet. The water sprinklers that were running on start to seize, as several trickles can be heard falling onto the floor. Lastly, the lights resume back on, as Ventura, alongside the Holy Brigade look to have disappeared instantly. Padrone Orthaeus is left standing, stunned and motionless, with the EAW employees in the distance converse while pin-pointing at the wet, and scared-to-death Padrone Orthaeus.)

(The camera pans backstage to the interviewing area — where we’re joined by Pierre McGuire.)

Pierre McGuire: Hello ladies and gentlemen, I hope you’re all enjoying this fantastically scheduled Pain for Pride 9! Tonight, I have a very special guest, he’s one of the nine competitors that will be competing in the Cash in the Vault ladder match!!!… THE NAAAAAAASSSSSSSS!!!

(The Nas steps onto the set, wearing workout pants, and “IF YOU SMELL… WHAT THE NAS IS COOKING!” t-shirt, he grins widely at the camera.)

Pierre McGuire: First off, I’d like to thank you for being here tonight! It took me quite some time to find someone to interview… I think people don’t like me.

(The Nas takes the microphone right out of his hand.)

The Nas: Listen here, jabroni, the only reason I’m here tonight, is the layeth the smack down all over my Cash in the Vault opposition’s candy ass! Do you think I give a flying two shits about you?! Nah, nah, nah, get this right, Pierre. I’m here for self-promotion, you see, I’m giving the people what they WANT… THE NAS. And when The Nas appears across millions… AND MILLIONS, of television sets. Do you know what happens? IT DRAWS RATINGS. Do you honestly expect that anyone would tune in for Rhaegar?! He’s too busy finding out if he’s a product of incest still… I mean, do you people read that medieval book? He’s a blatant rip off of that guy that birthed the bastard. But Tig? What are we now? We’re kids naming ourselves after Pooh Bear characters? He needs to grow up, much like Chris Elite… who walks around, with a giant mamba, making himself look two feet short next to him! And don’t forget Lioncross… who is he even? Shouldn’t he be competing against Carlos for that fake title he prides himself so much on? ANYWAY… we move onto this awkward looking fellow, Angelo Brando! Have you seen this guy talk? He’s more flamboyant than Caitlyn Jenner! AND THAT’S SAYING SOMETHING! Don’t be amazed if we find him on the box of your Wheaties cereal, but we all know that’s not the cereal of champions anymore— because all enjoy ourselves a nice bowl of Fruity Loops right? You know what I think about when I think of that delicious, yet ever so rainbow cereal… NICK ANGEL! That fruity loop looking, can’t string a sentence, needs to go back to English class, won’t win the big one anytime soon, type of person. That’s just enough to sum him up, but then you got this supermodel looking guy; Rex McAllister! How’s he even competing this match?! Xavier seriously took this GUY under his wing?! He looks like he should be starring on an episode of House Wives, but instead he’s playin’ the stay home dad, because there’s no way this man makes three comma number paychecks, like myself… but last, but certainly, actually yeah, least… PHOENIX WINTERBORN! THE MAN WHO STEPPED INSIDE THE SQUARED CIRCLE WITH THE DADDY ISSUES VENDETTA HIMSELF… BUSTING A NUT TO SERENA JI! HE WENT TOE-TO-TOE WITH ARES, AND COULDN’T FINISH HIM OFF! MUCH LIKE HIS WOMEN! But nah, nah… let’s get serious here for a second. There’s only ONE man that’s walking out with that covenant briefcase, AND THAT’S THE NAS! IF YOU SMELL… WHAT THE NAS… IS COOKING.

(The Nas throws the microphone behind him, Pierre McGuire standing there with his mouth wide open, eyes widened, astounded by everything The Nas just said… The Nas returns, psyching Pierre out with a fake backhand, but walks off instead, as the camera pans elsewhere.)

(A video package of the Cash in the Vault Ladder Match is played…)

(The camera pans back to the arena, where thousands of fans anticipate the Cash in the Vault ladder match – the camera pans up and down the ramp at several ladders set up, and then back to the ring announcer.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: Nine men, one aspiration; to be Mr. Cash in the Vault — AND HERE WE GO! Rhaegar finds a foe with Chris Elite, both laying into each other with multiple closed fists! Angelo proceeds to swing kicks at The Nas! Winterborn already sliding out of the ring, eyeing down a few ladders… BUT LIONCROSS PURSUES WINTERBORN, AND GOES SOARING OUT OF THE RING! NAILING WINTERBORN WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! Winterborn and Lioncross already grounded, and Angelo is climbing up the ropes near the two of them! What’s he thinking of here?! Angelo measures them both up! TIG KELLY SHOVES ANGELO OFF THE ROPES!!! ANGELO LANDS DOWN ON LIONCROSS AND WINTERBORN!!!

Matt Ryder: Tig Kelly spins around RIGHT INTO A RUNNING LARIAT FROM REX MCALLISTER! Tig was NOT expecting that! But Rex is immediately spun around by… Nick Angel! NICK ANGELO WITH THE GROUND ZERO!!! GROUND ZERO ALREADY!!! NO! REX SHOVES NICK ANGEL OFF BEFORE HE COULD EXECUTE IT PROPERLY! Meanwhile, Rhaegar whips Chris Elite into the ropes! BUT CHRIS ELITE USES THAT FORCE TO DIVE OVER THE TOP ROPE!!! RUNNING LEAPING MOONSAULT OVER THE TOP ROPE DOWN ONTO LIONCROSS, ANGELO, AND WINTERBORN!!! TAKING ALL FOUR MEN DOWN!!! This is outright insanity to begin with! Everyone wants to take the greatest risks in this match!

Stew-O: The Nas slides playing this very intelligently, sliding out on the opposite end where everyone else is… folding up a placed ladder, and sliding it into the ring! The Nas attempts to slide in, BUT IS DRIVEN RIGHT BACK OUT WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE FROM NICK ANGEL! The Nas falls backwards into the barricade, and Nick Angel picks up the ladder, setting it up in the middle of the ring! BUT FROM BEHIND, TIG KELLY THROWS NICK BY THE HEAD RIGHT INTO THE LADDER! Nick Angel stumbles backwards on wobbly legs, AND TIG DRIVES BOTH KNEES INTO NICK ANGEL’S SPINE WITH A DEADLY BACKSTABBER!!! MY LAWD!!!

Matt Ryder: Tig takes advantage of his situation and decides to climb the ladder rather quickly! But Lioncross sneakily slides into the ring, seeing this… and he runs up behind Tig! Throwing multiple forearms into his spine! And on the other end, Rhaegar is climbing up the ladder! This is becoming a race to the top! Tig is being pulled down, but Rhaegar is at the top! AND LIONCROSS GRIPS TIG FIRMLY AROUND THE WAIST… GERMAN SUPLEX RIGHT OFF THE SIDE OF THE LADDER!!! TIG TAKES A VIOLENT FALL FROM THAT! BUT RHAEGAR HAS HIS HANDS ON THE BRIEFCASE!!!

Stew-O: BUT LOOK!!! NAS SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING WITH STEEL CHAIR AT HAND!!! THE NAS INSTANTLY CHUCKS IT AT THE BACK OF RHAEGAR WITH ALL OF HIS STRENGTH!

Phoenix Winterborn on the other hand slides in with a second ladder now! He rests it in the corner, but Chris Elite pulls himself back onto the apron… AND SPRINGS OFF THE TOP ROPE!!!…

AND HAMMERS DOWN ON THE NAS’ KNEECAP WITH SEVERAL SHARP ELBOWS! AND THEN SWEEPS HIM OFF HIS FEET WITH A DRAGON SCREW!

Stew-O: OUCH!!! THE NAS LANDS ON THE LADDER HE PUSHED DOWN!!! Rex is back to his feet, BUT IS TAKEN DOWN BY A DESTRUCTO DISC SLINGBLADE FROM ANGELO!!! Angelo takes Rex off his feet, and Rhaegar once again pulling the ladder back up, positioning it perfectly under the briefcase… but is met with a wicked spin kick to the stomach from Nick Angel! And there’s another stiff spin kick landing on the chest this time! AND NICK RAPIDLY DRILLS HIS BOOTS OVER AND OVER INTO RHAEGAR’S STOMACH AND CHEST AREA! Rhaegar stumbles backwards…

Matt Ryder: AND ANGEL NAILS HIM IN THE HEAD WITH A VERY LOUD LEAPING ENZUIGIRI! Rhaegar is taken down to a knee! Nick Angel distances himself away from Rhaegar, possibly setting something up here? NICK CHARGES… RIGHT INTO A NASTY PELE KICK FROM LIONCROSS!!! NICK COLLAPSES OFF HIS FEET! Lioncross goes to climb up the ladder now, but this time is stopped by Winterborn! Winterborn lands some vicious shots with his forearms! But Lioncross smashes his elbows into Winterborn’s temple multiple times! AND THERE’S TIG KELLY WITH A SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE BACK OF LIONCROSS’ HEAD!!!

Stew-O: OH! THE STRIKE OF ZEUS!!! THE STRIKE OF ZEUS FROM RHAEGAR! RHAEGAR SPEARS TIG KELLY RIGHT THROUGH THE CORNERED LADDER!!! THEY JUST BROKE THAT LADDER IN HALF!!! TIG KELLY MIGHT BE BROKEN IN HALF AS WELL! Rhaegar is not messing around, this win could mean turning his career around within a blink of an eye! Rhaegar turns around, walks to the ladder still set up in the ring… and begins to climb! UNTIL CHRIS ELITE LIMPS TOWARD HIM! CHRIS ELITE PULLS HIM DOWN… AND THERE’S A JUMPING ELITE CUTTER TO RHAEGAR!!! Rhaegar is driven nose first into the white canvas!

Matt Ryder: Chris Elite now rushes up the ladder, climbing as quickly as he can! I’m amazed he’s still walking after that suplex onto the ladder… BUT ON THE OTHER SIDE! WINTERBORN IS CLIMBING THE LADDER! Both men racing to the tap, who’s going to get there first? IT’S WINTERBORN! But Elite CONNECTS WITH A VICIOUS EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Winterborn woozily falls back, but catches himself! THERE’S A FOREARM TO ELITE’S HEAD! AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! Elite is wobbling around, I don’t think he’s going to last much longer up there! Winterborn reaches up for the case… but Elite pushes it away!

Stew-O: Winterborn rams another forearm into Elite’s face! BUT ELITE CATCHES THE BRIEFCASE ON THE WAY BACK, AND CLOCKS IT UPSIDE WINTERBORN’S HEAD!!! WINTERBORN LOOKS LIKE HE’S ABOUT TO FALL! BUT ELITE RUNS UP THE LADDER… AND HE FLIPS OVERHEAD WINTERBORN!!! OH MY GOD!!! SOMERSAULT POWERBOMB RIGHT OFF THE LADDER!!! WINTERBORN LANDS BRUTALLY BACK DOWN ONTO THE MAT!!! AND THE NAS COMES ALONG SHOVES THE LADDER DOWN INTO THE BACK OF CHRIS ELITE’S SKULL! THE NAS USED THE LADDER TO BURY CHRIS ELITE AND WINTERBORN UNDERNEATH IT!!! The Nas ensuring that nobody can pull a quick one in this match!

Matt Ryder: HERE COMES NICK RUSHING OFF THE ROPES!!! NICK CHARGES AT THE NAS— THE NAS CATCHES HIM MID-WAY! THE NAS GOT HIM! THE GRAND SLAM! THE GRAND SLAM RIGHT ONTO THE LADDER THAT’S COVERING WINTERBORN AND ELITE! MY LORD! And oh no… The Nas looks all around the arena! He’s feeling it! The fans are on their feet, he waves his arms, AND THROWS HIS ELBOW PAD TO THE CROWD!!! HERE WE GO, THE SET UP TO THE SPECTACULAR ELBOW!!! HE SPRINTS OFF THE ROPES… FALL AWAY SLAM!!! REX CATCHES HIM MID-WAY, CONNECTING WITH A BEAUTIFUL FALL AWAY SLAM!!!

Stew-O: Nick rolls off the ladder, and both Winterborn and Elite slide out of the ring… Rex back to his feet, RIPCORD ELBOW!!! RIPCORD ELBOW FROM TIG KELLY YO REX!!! TIG’S BACK IN THIS… AND REX DUCKS UNDERNEATH! REX GOES CHARGING OFF THE ROPES! RUNNING LARIAT— NO! TIG SIDESTEPS IT, SHIFTING BEHIND REX! GERMAN SUPLEX! REX THROWS HIS ELBOWS BACK! REX WITH ONE ELBOW AFTER ANOTHER! NOT LETTING IT GO THROUGH! He’s fighting out of it! Rex escapes his grip, spinning around on a dime… AND ANGELO COMES SPRINTING AT THEM MID-WAY! ANGELO WITH A DOUBLE DROPKICK! KNOCKING THEM BOTH BACK INTO THE ROPES!

Matt Ryder: AND ANGELO TAKES OFF IN A SPRINT AT BOTH OF THEM… HOLD ON! THEY BOTH DUMP HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE FOR A DOUBLE BACK BODY DROP! Angelo luckily lands on his feet! TIG SPINS AROUND FOR A SPINNING ELBOW! BUT ANGELO SPRINGS BACKWARDS OFF THE ROPES BEFORE IT CONNECTS! SPRINGBOARD FOREARM SMASH ONTO WINTERBORN WHO JUST GOT BACK TO HIS FEET!!! Angelo is then met by A FALCON KICK ROUNDHOUSE TO HIS TEMPLE! DEAR LORD! But Tig and Rex go back at it again in the ring, exchanging blows once more!

Stew-O: Lioncross now back up in the ring, lifting the ladder back up! And Chris Elite takes a ladder leaned against the barricade, and slides in the ring with it… oh boy, Tig Kelly and Rex find themselves wedged between Lioncross and Elite with ladders! Elite looks across to Lioncross… AND BOTH RUN AT TIG AND REX!!! TIG AND REX ARE DOOMED! THEY GET SANDWICHED— NO! THEY BOTH DROP TO THEIR BACKS, AND ELITE AND LIONCROSS COLLIDE WITH LADDERS! Both stumble backwards, BUT THEN CHARGE AT ONE ANOTHER! COLLIDING ONCE MORE! AND THEY’RE BATTLING IT OUT AS IF THE LADDERS WERE SWORDS!

Matt Ryder: Who’s going to win?! Who’s going to be left standing?! AND ELITE CHUCKS HIS LADDER AT LIONCROSS… SO DOES LIONCROSS! THE LADDERS JUST HIT EACH OTHER MID-AIR, BUT LIONCROSS CATCHES ELITE OFF GUARD WITH A SPRINTING SPINNING BACKFIST!!! ELITE IS TAKEN DOWN! And Rex now grabs one of those ladders they were using, setting it up! He’s trying to hurry himself, as he proceeds to climb! But Nick Angel is right there behind him! Nick Angel throws a couple of fists to his spine, and climbs up with him! Nick grips around his head— AND DROPS HIM TO THE CANVAS ONCE MORE WITH A REVERSE DDT OFF THE SIDE OF THE LADDER!!!

Stew-O: Nick kips back to his feet! He’s on fire here! And on the outside… Winterborn is back to his feet! He lifts up a ladder, wedging it between the lower rope on the apron…. and on the barricade??? This isn’t spelling good news for someone! Angel desperately climbs up the ladder! He’s making his way up quickly! And he’s on the top! HE REACHES FOR THE CASE! IS THIS IT??? WINTERBORN SLIDES INTO THE RING! NICK IS FINGERTIPS AWAY… AND WINTERBORN SETS UP THE SECOND LADDER NEXT TO HIM! WINTERBORN CLIMBS UP THAT! BUT NICK AS HIS HANDS ON THE BRIEFCASE, AND WINTERBORN THROWS KICKS TO HIS RIBS!

Matt Ryder: KICK AFTER KICK! FEARFULLY DRIVING HIS BOOT INTO HIS RIBS IN HOPES TO KEEP THE CASE OUT OF ANGEL’S HANDS! AND TIG CLIMBS UP THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF NICK! BUT THERE’S RHAEGAR TOO! RHAEGAR CLIMBS UP THE LADDER THAT WINTERBORN IS ON! Angel is forced to release the case, and it swings in Winterborn’s direction! But Rhaegar drives a fist into Winterborn’s face! Two punches! Three punches! Winterborn teetering off the ladder, lets go of the case, and this time Tig grabs onto it! AND TIG SMASHES IT INTO NICK’S HEAD FORCEFULLY OVER AND OVER! NICK FALLS BACKWARDS OFF THE LADDER! TIG IS TRYING TO UNHOOK THE CASE!

Stew-O: BUT RHAEGAR EXTENDS HIS ARMS OVER, RIPPING IT OUT OF TIG’S GRIP! AND DELIVERING MULTIPLE HEADBUTTS! TIG CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE! HE FALLS OFF THE LADDER! THEN RHAEGAR SLAMS THE BRIEFCASE RIGHT INTO WINTERBORN’S HEAD OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! ONE VICIOUS SHOT AFTER THE OTHER! WINTERBORN HANGING ON BY A HAND… WINTERBORN FALLS!!! HE RELEASES HIS GRIP ON THE LADDER AND FALLS SPINE FIRST TO THE MAT!!! RHAEGAR HAS IT! RHAEGAR GOT IT! HE UNHOOKS…

Matt Ryder: REX! REX! REX! REX CLIMBS UP UNDERNEATH RHAEGAR’S LEGS! AND HE’S GOT HIM HOISTED UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!!! IN THE ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION! RHAEGAR IS STRUGGLING TO UNHOOK THE BRIEFCASE… BUT HIS GRIP FAILS ON HIM! HE RELEASES HIS HOLD ON IT!!! AND OH MY GOD!!! ELECTRIC CHAIR DRIVER!!! REX TAKES RHAEGAR DOWN WITH A DEADLY ELECTRIC CHAIR DRIVER!!! MY LORD!!! Rex just saves himself and literally everyone else from defeat, but he should take this time to climb back up the ladder!

Stew-O: I think Rex is going to do it! Rex is slowly getting back up… and he’s climbing back up the ladder! He’s going to do it! Rex is going to take this match right here right now! He’s almost there— THE NAS! THE NAS DRAGS THE LADDER WITH REX ON IT AWAY FROM THE CENTER!!! RIGHT UP AGAINST THE ROPES!!! AND NAS CLIMBS UP THE LADDER! WHY??? IT’S NOWHERE NEAR THE BRIEFCASE! Oh… wait, that ladder is oddly close toward the wedged ladder Winterborn set up not so long ago! I don’t think I like the looks of this… But Nas is met by a huge right from Rex! But Nas retaliates with a huge left!

Matt Ryder: There’s a right hook from Rex, but another left from The Nas! These two are going at it! BUT NAS IS NOW UNLEASHING WITH RAPID LEFT AND RIGHT HOOKS! OVERWHELMING REX, BUT REX THROWS ONE MORE RIGHT!!! NO!!! THE NAS CATCHES HIS ARM, AND HOOKS IT OVER HIS SHOULDER!!! OH NO!!! OH NO!!! HE CLIMBS UP THE LADDER FURTHER… STANDING STRAIGHT UP ON THE SECOND STEP FROM THE TOP—- HE HAS HIM IN THE GRAND SLAM POSITION! REX IS FIRING OFF ELBOWS! BUT THE NAS FLIES OFF THE LADDER TO THE OUTSIDE!!!

Stew-O: GRAND SLAM TO THE OUTSIDE RIGHT THROUGH THE LADDER THAT’S WEDGED BETWEEN THE APRON AND BARRICADE!!! OH MY GOD!!!! THEY BREAK THE LADDER IN HALF! AND I THINK THEY BROKE EACH OTHER IN HALF! NEITHER MEN ARE MOVING AN INCH! WE NEED A REPLAY OF THAT!!!

(Replays with different angles of The Nas performing The Grand Slam to Rex McAllister from the top of the ladder to ladder wedged outside is shown…)

Stew-O: THIS IS INSANE! THE RISKS THEY’RE TAKING TO KEEP EACH OTHER DOWN AND OUT!!! AND LOOK!!! CHRIS ELITE SETS THE SECOND LADDER THAT WAS ALREADY UP CLOSER TO THE BRIEFCASE!!! HE’S THE ONLY ONE LEFT STANDING!!! CHRIS ELITE CLIMBS! CLIMB ELITE, CLIMB FASTER!!!

Matt Ryder: HE’S SO CLOSE!!! REACH ELITE, MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE, BROSKI! HE REACHES FOR HIS LIFE!!! HE’S SO CLOSE…. NO!!! TIG KELLY SHOVES THE LADDER DOWN! HE SHOVES IT DOWN!!! CHRIS ELITE FALLS NECK FIRST ONTO THE RING ROPES! AND FLIES BACKWARDS! RIGHT INTO TIG’S GRIP… What’s he thinking??? KILL CONFIRMED!!! THE KILL CONFIRMED!!! HE GOT HIM!!! THE CUTTER CONNECTS… TRANSITIONED INTO A DRAGON SLEEPER!!! He’s wrenching his neck backwards, but he can’t win this by submission! I think he knows that! Tig pulls Elite back to his feet, still pulling him backwards in that awful painful dragon sleeper!

Stew-O: REVERSE DDT, BUT TO TIG’S KNELT KNEE! AND A SECOND REVERSE DDT ONTO HIS KNEE AGAIN! Tig pulls Chris Elite back up in the dragon sleeper position! And he starts to walk backwards to the ladder… REVERSE SUPLEX!!! REVERSE SUPLEX INTO THE THE MIDDLE OF THE LADDER!!! CHRIS ELITE LANDS STOMACH FIRST, HUNG FROM THE SPREADER OF THE LADDER!!! AND NICK ANGEL!!! ANGEL ANGEL WITH A SPRINTING GROUND ZERO, PULLING ELITE DOWN HEAD FIRST ONTO THE CANVAS! SCRAPING ELITE’S STOMACH FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE LADDER DOWNWARD TO THE MAT! HE DRAGS THE LADDER DOWN WITH HIM!!

Matt Ryder: Nick back to his feet, as well Tig! TIG THROWS A WICKED SPINNING KNEE STRIKE TO NICK’S LEG! ONE MORE! TIG VICIOUSLY STRIKING NICK WITH HIS KNEES! BUT LIONCROSS!!! LIONCROSS RUSHES OFF THE ROPES BEHIND TIG, AND CATCHES HIM OFF GUARD WITH A CRAZY BULLDOG FROM NOWHERE! Nick shakes off his legs, but he’s met face-to-face with Lioncross! And Lioncross throws wild hand thrusts to his neck and head! And Lioncross tosses Nick into the corner, and pierces him in the abdomen with a knee! Lioncross hoists Nick onto the top rope… this isn’t good! Nick sits there, as Lioncross climbs!

Stew-O: Lioncross is setting up for one hell of a superplex! He hooks Nick’s arm over his neck… and LIFTS HIM UP! NICK TRIES FIGHTING LIONCROSS OFF! BUT IT’S TOO LATE! LIONCROSS LIFTS HIM UP!!! AND DROPS BACKWARDS… SUPERPLEX!!! SUPERPLEX CONNECTS! LIONCROSS CONNECTS WITH AN EMPATHETIC SUPERLEX… AND NICK LANDS SPINE FIRST ON THE LADDER THAT WAS DRAGGED DOWN WHEN HE GROUND ZERO’D CHRIS ELITE! HIS SPINE GOES RIGHT THROUGH THE SPREADER OF THE LADDER!!! RENDERING THAT LADDER USELESS IF THEY WISH TO CLIMB IT!!! HE MIGHT HAVE BROKEN NICK’S BACK THERE!

Matt Ryder: Lioncross rolls back to his feet, scanning the area of where everyone is positioned… and the first person he see’s is Winterborn! Winterborn resting against the ropes, but Lioncross is about to change that! Lioncross walks toward Winterborn, but Winterborn with a forearm to the head! Lioncross with a closed fist shot to Phoenix’s head! But Winterborn blocks it! Winterborn with a stiff pop up kick to the stomach of Lioncross— AND HE’S SETTING UP THE BOW BEFORE ME! THE HEADLOCK DRIVER COMBO!!! CAN HE??? HE DOES! HE GOT HIM! THE BOW BEFORE ME CONNECTS! HE GOT HIM! LIONCROSS IS DOWN! HE’S OUT! WINTERBORN IS THE LAST ONE STANDING IN THE RING…

Stew-O: Phoenix takes one good look at the briefcase, and everyone around who’s attempting to recover… Phoenix drags the ladder that Nas and Rex went flying off back toward the middle! I think we may crown a new Mr. Cash in the Vault right here! This could be it… Phoenix slowly climbs up the ladder! Each step taken is a step toward fulfilling his dream! One step after the other… he’s at the top! He’s reached the top! He looks up to the briefcase, and he takes another step up? He’s looking all around to the wild fans cheering him on! Lioncross rests below him still… AND HE’S STANDING TALL?! HE’S NOT REACHING FOR THE BRIEFCASE?! WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?! WINTERBORN RAISES A FIST TO THE FANS… THEY’RE CHEERING CRAZILY! OH MY GOD!!! PHOENIX LEAPS OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER!!!

Matt Ryder: FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX!!!!!!!!!! TWISTING 630 MOONSAULT OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER!! HE CONNECTS!!! LIONCROSS LOOKS LIKE THE WIND WAS TAKEN RIGHT OUT OF HIM!!! HOW MUCH FURTHER WILL THEY GO?

(Replays of Phoenix Winterborn’s Flight of the Phoenix is shown in various camera angles.)

Stew-O: THIS IS ANYONE’S BALL GAME NOW! Who’s going to take advantage now? Anyone can climb that ladder, anyone can win this match… and it looks to be Rhaegar recovering first! He’s using the ladder to pull himself upwards… but he takes the ladder down?! What’s he thinking of?! This is outrageous! HE NEEDS TO CLIMB IT! NOT TAKE IT DOWN… he places the ladder flat on top of his shoulders, his head wedged between the middle steps??? AND TIG IS UP… AND CHARGES AT RHAEGAR!!! NO!!! RHAEGAR WITH THE AIRPLANE SPIN WITH THE LADDER!!! HE NAILS TIG IN THE HEAD— TIG DUCKS UNDER IT! TIG CONTINUES TO PURSUE HIM, BUT IT KNOCKED IN THE HEAD WITH THE LADDER AS HE DOES! AND ANGELO IS THERE!! ANGELO TRIES BLINDSIDING RHAEGAR, BUT HE’S ROCKED IN THE HEAD WITH THE LADDER!!! ANGELO IS DOWN… AND NICK IS BACK!!! NICK SLOWLY LEAPS AT RHAEGAR… ONLY TO BE TAKEN DOWN BY THIS WILD MAN’S AIRPLANE SPIN WITH THE LADDER!!! HE’S NOT STOPPING! ROUND AND AROUND HE GOES! WHEN WILL HE STOP? NOBODY KNOWS!

Matt Ryder: WAIT, LOOK! CHRIS ELITE IS BACK IN THIS! CHRIS ELITE HAS HIMSELF MEASURING RHAEGAR ON THE APRON… AND HE SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES! AND HE LANDS ON THE LADDER RHAEGAR IS HAULING AROUND! AND CHRIS ELITE BALANCING HIMSELF… LEAPS UP!!! AND HE GRABS THE CASE!!! HE’S GOT THE BRIEFCASE!!! UNHOOK IT ELITE!!! BUT RHAEGAR RUSHES FORWARD, MOVING ELITE OUT OF PLACE! BUT ELITE HANGS ON! ELITE HANGS ON! HE’S DANGLING FROM THE HOOK THAT HAS THE BRIEFCASE HUNG HIGH!!! HE’S NOT LETTING GO! CHRIS ELITE WANTS THIS MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE!

Stew-O: Rhaegar drops the ladder off of his shoulders, against the ropes… and re-positions himself right underneath Chris Elite! Chris Elite is trying to keep himself up, but it’s becoming more difficult… AND RHAEGAR JUMPS UP FOR HIM! BUT CAN’T SEEM TO CATCH HIM! ELITE SWINGS BACK AND FORTH… AND SEEMS TO BE LOSING HIS GRIP! NO! ELITE COME ON! SO MANY YEARS HE’S SPENT WORKING IN THIS COMPANY! ELITE… FALLS!!! NO!!! RIGHT ONTO RHAEGAR’S SHOULDERS! HURRICANRANA!!! CHRIS ELITE HURRICANRANA’S RHAEGAR FACE FIRST INTO THE LADDER SET AGAINST THE ROPES!!! AND I THINK THAT MIGHT OF BUSTED RHAEGAR OPEN!!!

Matt Ryder: Rhaegar groggily stumbles backwards, barely able to stand… AND CHRIS ELITE DROPKICKS HIM RIGHT BACK INTO THE LADDER! RHAEGAR IS THROWN INTO THE LADDER ONCE AGAIN! Rhaegar is teetering, but the man will NOT fall! Chris Elite is getting frustrated with this Greek man! Rhaegar backs away from the ladder again… BOX OFFICE SMASH TO THE BACK OF RHAEGAR’S HEAD!!! CHRIS ELITE NAILS RHAEGAR WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND RHAEGAR COLLAPSES STOMACH FIRST ON THE LADDER!!!! Chris Elite is frenzied, a fire has been lit underneath him!

Stew-O: SPINEBUSTER!!! SPINEBUSTER!!! SPINEBUSTER ONTO THE LADDER! WHERE IN THE WORLD DID THE NAS COME FROM? BUT ANGELO RAINS ON THE NAS PARADE, WITH A RUNNING KISHIN DANCE KNEE STRIKE TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD!!! Angelo jumps back up, The Nas on his knee… AND A RUNNING DRIVE BY KNEE TO NAS!!! NO!!! THE NAS SWIFTLY JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY! AND THE NAS SPINS ANGELO AROUND… KICK TO THE GUT! HE PULLS HIM IN! DDT!!— ANGELO SHOVES HIMSELF! CRIMSON LOTUS! THE SUPERKICK… NO! THE NAS CATCHES THE LEG! REVERSE STO!!! NAS PLANTS HIM WITH THE REVERSE STO!!! Nas hurries to his feet, BUT IS MET WITH A MAFIA KICK!!! MAFIA KICK FROM TIG KELLY!!!

Matt Ryder: NOT TODAY, THE NAS MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! AND WHAT?! HERE COMES REX MCALLISTER! REX PULLS THE NAS IN, BUT NICK ANGEL FROM BEHIND REX! NICK TURNS REX AROUND! GROUND ZERO!!! NO!! REX THROWS HIM AWAY! NICK’S BACK UP! BUT TIG PULLS THE LADDER ON THE ROPES BACKWARDS, AND SMACKS NICK IN THE HEAD WITH IT! AND TIG SETS THE LADDER UP!!! BUT REX PULLS TIG AWAY FROM THE LADDER… TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A QUICK RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Angelo slides underneath the bottom rope, and he grabs another ladder! Sliding back into the ring— Nick lifts Angelo up! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT FROM NICK ANGEL!

Stew-O: Nick swipes up the ladder off the ground, Rex charges at him! AND NICK NAILS HIM IN THE HEAD WITH THE LADDER! AND NICK TURNS THE LADDER UPSIDE DOWN… AND STARTS BEATING THE LADDER INTO REX’S RIBS!! ONE SHOT AFTER ANOTHER!!! BUT THERE’S A PEOPLE’S PUNCH TO THE BACK OF NICK’S HEAD FROM THE NAS!! Rex slides out of the ring, as medical personnel check on him… Nick drops the ladder, Nas spins him around… DELIVERANCE TO THE NAS!!! SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!!! WINTERBORN IS UP AND IN THIS!

Matt Ryder: AND NICK SLOWLY IS CLIMBING UP THE LADDER!!! NICK IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF EVERYONE’S SITUATION! AS THEY’RE ALL BRAWLING IN THE RING! AND WINTERBORN!!! WINTERBORN BREAKS AWAY FROM TIG AND CLIMBS THE LADDER IN A RUSH! WINTERBORN IS ASCENDING THE LADDER! NICK IS UP! TIG SPRINTS AFTER WINTERBORN, BUT IS STOPPED BY LIONCROSS WITH A DOUBLE KNEE FACEBUSTER!! AND NOW NICK AND WINTERBORN ARE WAGING WAR ON THE TOP OF THE LADDER!!! FISTS, KICKS, FOREARMS! THEY’RE TRYING TO KNOCK EACH OTHER OFF THE LADDER!!! AND NICK WITH A SPIN KICK TO THE RIBS! ONE MORE SPIN KICK!

Stew-O: Nick lifts Phoenix up… stepping up with him! OH… MY… GOOOOOOOOD!!!! GROUND ZERO OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER! NICK ANGEL EXECUTED SUCH A VIOLENT GROUND ZERO FROM THE VERY TOP OF THE LADDER! NEITHER OF THOSE MEN ARE MOVING!!! But look at this! Chris Elite is on the apron, I think he’s going to spring off the ropes onto the ladder! He’s sizing it up— THE STRIKE OF ZEUS! SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! RHAEGAR SPEARS CHRIS ELITE THROUGH THE ROPES AND ONTO THE ALREADY BROKEN LADDER! MY GOODNESS! THIS IS A MASSACRE!

Matt Ryder: Angelo pulls himself back using the ropes, knelt down with widen eyes staring at the table… Lioncross laying into The Nas in the corner— MAFIA KICK! MAFIA KICK SENDING ANGELO RIGHT OUT OF THE RING TO THE ARENA FLOOR! ANGELO APPEARS TO BE KNOCKED OUT COLD OUTSIDE THE RING!!! AND TIG KELLY REDIRECTS HIMSELF TO THE SET UP LADDER!!! TIG ASCENDS AS QUICK AS HE CAN UP THE LADDER! BUT THE NAS SHOVES LIONCROSS AWAY, AND CHARGES AFTER TIG! TIG IS MID-WAY, AND THE NAS IS CLIMBING! TIG IS AT THE TOP!

ONE MORE PEOPLE’S PUNCH DOES THE TRICK! TIG FALLS OFF THE LADDER, BUT HE LANDS ON HIS FEET! SPINNING BACKFIST FROM LIONCROSS! THE SPINNING BACKFIST CONNECTS! TIG IS DRILLED IN THE HEAD WITH A CLOSED FIST! AND HE’S OUT! NO WAY HE’S GETTING UP… AND LIONCROSS CLIMBS THE LADDER!

Matt Ryder: THE NAS REACHES UP FOR THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE! HE’S SO CLOSE… LIONCROSS DESPERATELY CLIMBS UP THE LADDER!! AND THE NAS HAS IT! THE NAS HAS THE BRIEFCASE! BUT LIONCROSS IS UP ON THE TOP!!! HEADBUTT TO THE NAS FROM LIONCROSS! THERE’S A SECOND HEADBUTT! THE NAS LOSES THE GRIP ON THE BRIEFCASE, BUT SWINGS IT AWAY FROM THEM!!! AND THE NAS RETURNS WITH A PEOPLE’S PUNCH! AND WOW! HE’S FIRING OFF WITH A WHOLE LOAD OF PEOPLE’S PUNCHES!!! I THINK LIONCROSS IS ABOUT LOSE HIS GRIP…. HE TEETERS BACKWARDS!!!…

Stew-O: BUT LIONCROSS CATCHES THE BRIEFCASE ON THE WAY BACK!!! AND SMASHES IT INTO THE NAS’ HEAD!!! OVER AND OVER!! HOW MUCH MORE PUNISHMENT WILL HE TAKE?! THE NAS TRIES TO BLOCK THE BRIEFCASE, BUT RELEASED ONE HAND OFF THE LADDER… AND LIONCROSS DRILLS HIM IN THE HEAD ONE MORE TIME WITH THE BRIEFCASE! THE NAS FALLS OFF! HE FALLS OFF!

CASH IN THE VAULT WINNER!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Higher Ground” by Red Hot Chili Peppers (Cover) plays loudly, as Lioncross eyes widened, stares down at the Cash in the Vault briefcase in his hand, while The Nas sits back in the corner… appearing very disappointed.)

Ring Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH!!!… AND NEW 2016 MR. CASH IN THE VAUUUUUUUUUUUULTTTT!!!!!… LIIIIIIIIIONNNNNNNNNNCROSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

Matt Ryder: WHAT?! LIONCROSS DID IT! I DID NOT… I REPEAT I DID NOT EXPECT LIONCROSS OF ALL PEOPLE TO WIN THIS MATCH! I’M ASTOUNDED BY THIS VICTORY! HE JUST WON HIMSELF A POSSIBLE ONE WAY TICKET TO BECOMING WORLD CHAMPION IN EAW!!! WE MIGHT SEE THE QUICKEST SUCCESS STORY SINCE XAVIER WILLIAMS!

Stew-O: THE NAS CAN’T BELIEVE IT EITHER… HE WAS SO CLOSE, HE DIDN’T EVEN SEE LIONCROSS DANGLING ABOVE HIM! This was such a hard fought match, all nine men gave it their all! I was expecting some favorites like The Nas, or even Tig Kelly… veterans like Nick Angel, Chris Elite, it’s crazy to think a wildcard underdog won this match!

Matt Ryder: I don’t know if I would call him an underdog, but he’s definitely proven his worth tonight! This also makes me wonder… will he make history and cash in on the same night? All three World Champions have a reason to fret now, they have a NEW Mr. Cash in the Vault to fear!

(Lioncross pulls the ladder back up, while The Nas rolls out of the ring, shoving people out of the way… walking back up the ramp, and Lioncross climbs up the ladder, sitting on the top, raising his briefcase high into the air with both hands.)

Stew-O: There’s a sight worth seeing! It happens once a year, and it’s always worth waiting that entire year to witness such a chaotic much like this one. Congratulations, Lioncross… you earned in!

(… Lioncross shouts to the fans, as they roar in cheers, raising the Cash in the Vault briefcase by the handle with his right hand, and pointing at it with his newly won briefcase, as the camera fades elsewhere.)

( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GK4n1b70unA … )

( ‘Stranger in Moscow’ by Michael Jackson plays as a black and white video package airs highlighting the match for the Vixens World Championship at Triple Threat )

HOW DOES IT FEEL?

( The camera shows the pinfall of the match, focusing in on Aria Jaxon. The ring bell and roar of the crowd can be heard. It transitions to a slow moving video of Aria, jumping up and down holding the Vixens World Championship. She brings it down to hug and kiss the championship, a look of extreme elation on her face )

HOW DOES IT FEEL?

( The package once again highlights the pinfall, this time focusing in on The Heart Break Gal. The ring bell again can be heard but there’s no roar of the crowd. ‘Stranger in Moscow’ cuts and the music changes to take a dark and dreary turn. The camera shows HBG on the outside, sitting up against the barricade with her face buried against her knees before fading out )

“HBG: You’re not going to walk out of Pain for Pride as the Vixens World Champion.”

( ‘I’ll Take Everything’ by James Blunt plays as the package switches to the brawl between HBG and Aria Jaxon from last week’s Voltage. It shows the slap from HBG to Aria as well as Aria applying the 187 on HBG and her tapping out. The package ends with both women standing toe to toe and an image of the Vixens World Championship fading into the picture in the background )

( Camera fades to the ring )

“Cause I’m the FUCKING KING OF THE WORLD…”

“GET ON YOUR KNEES!”

(And then there was silence.)

(The loud sound of a continuing heartbeat begin to vibrate the entire arena, as red and yellow lights start to flash everywhere. The audience let out a huge roar, for they knew what was coming next.)

“SO GET UP AND GET OUT AND ILL SHOW YOU”

“WHAT IT TAKES FOR ME TO CONTROL YOU”

“‘CAUSE I’M THE FUCKING KING OF THE WORLD”

(An instrumental version of “King of the World” – Porcelain and the Tramps plays in the background, as white smoke effect almost cover up the whole entrance way)

(But a loud glass shattering sound cuts the music, and the spotlight immediately falls on the left side of the entrance ramp, where we now see a woman wearing couture dress, jewelry, and showered pieces of bills from the ceiling as confetti. “The Billion Dollar Psycho” Heart Break Gal, with a wicked smile on her face, is showing off a replica of the Vixens Championship belt around her waist)

(Once again, a glass shattering sound blasts from the speakers. Another spotlight on the right side of the entrance ramp shows a woman wearing a purple wrestling gear under a white coat, matched with a white breton cap and sunglasses. “It’s Okay to Stare” Heart Break Gal stands on a red carpet as Paparazzi’s from left and right snap pictures of her. She waves her hand at them while displaying a replica of the Vixens Championship belt on her shoulder)

(One more time, the glass shattering audio plays again, and one more spotlight shines upon the last clone who clearly mimicking “The Lovely” Heart Break Gal’s pose. She wears a black full-body gear, and black boots, with matching dark make-up and her brunette hair down. She gazes seriously at the audience, proudly showcasing a replica of the Vixens Championship on the palm of her hands)

(Large fireworks then go off on the entrance ramp, and lines of fire started to ignite at the side of the walkway. “King of the World” – Porcelain and the Tramps loudly plays in the arena, as the audience react with a combination of loud cheers and boos.)

(The Heart Break Gal emerges from the smokes and walks down between the firey pathway with a confident smirk on her face, and wearing a red cape over her sliver top and dark red shorts. Her black boots and fishnet stockings almost touch the fire one step at a time, but she walks with poise completely unaffected. The spotlight follows her where she goes and all her clones simultaneously raise their Vixens Championships in the air. HBG then slides in the ring and does her signature pose. She looks up at the Pain for Pride 9 logo before taking off her cape)

Kawajai: And here she is, the THREE time Vixens World Champion who hopes to make it a fourth tonight. I’m not a betting man Fan but I like her chances. HBG IS the Vixen’s Division. She almost singlehandedly kept it alive at one point and as a result, is responsible for the flourishing division that we have today…

WWEFan: She’s proved to be the truly dominant Vixen in every era EAW’s had, it only seems right that she gets to prove her dominance in this era on The Greatest Stage of Them All.
(The huge titantron looming over the ramp and all of the smaller LED screens throughout the stadium are overcome with static for a second before going completely black. The titantron itself allows the skyline of a city to come into view: Gotham City. Hot pink lights dot the skyline. A sultry woman’s voice echoing over the PA system cuts through the buzz of the crowd.)

Halle Berry V.O.: What’s the matter, cat got your tongue?

(The voiceover fades out, the tail end of the phrase echoing for a few moments. Flashes of hot pink momentarily wash over the screens before abruptly cutting to black again.

Anne Hathaway V.O.: I take what I need.

(It happens once more, and still, the crowd buzzes.)

Michelle Pfeiffer V.O.: You’re catnip to a girl like me.

(A circular platform rises from a hole in the stage, a black-clad female silhouette standing upon it, her back to the audience. The sound of a wildcat’s roar followed closely thereafter by the cracking of a whip abruptly cuts through the air. “Formation” — Beyonce tears over the speaker system, and the crowd comes unglued as Aria Jaxon turns around to face them. Her black attire is the same top/shorts combo she normally wears, but it’s all black and modeled after the costume of Catwoman. The Vixens Championship encircles her waist and she unclasps it and holds it high in the air as she descends the ramp.)

Kawajai: The champion… Not only is it her first defense, not only is it against the greatest Vixen of all-time, but it’s at Pain For Pride!… AND IT’S HER FIRST PAIN FOR PRIDE!! Imagine the pressure she’s feeling tonight?

WWEFan: Well if there’s any pressure she’s doing a good job of not showing it. She looks confident, maybe more confident than I’ve ever seen her. She’s ready for tonight, she’s been planning it for a long time.

( Ding! Ding! Ding! )

Ring Announcer: The following contest scheduled for one fall… IS FOR THE VIXENS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!! Introducing first, the challenger… from Dallas, Texas… ‘THE GREAT RED DRAGON’… THEEEEEEEE HEARRTTTTT BREEEEAAAAKKKKK GAAAAAALLLLLLL!!

( There’s a loud split reaction from the crowd, HBG doesn’t acknowledge it. She keeps her eyes locked on the championship )

Ring Announcer: And her opponent, from Los Angeles, California… SHE IS THE REIGNING EAW VIXENS WORLD CHAMPION!!… ARRRRRRRRIIIIIIAAAAAAA JAAAAAXXXXXXXXXOOONNNN!!

( Aria removes the championship from her waist. She hands it over to the referee who holds it high into the air. Both women glance at it as he hands it over to the timekeeper at ringside and calls for the bell )

( Ding! Ding! Ding! )

Kawajai: AND HERE. WE. GO! No circle around the ring, no lock up… both women step out from their respective corners and lock eyes with each other. A look of self assurance on the champion and a very cold, almost expressionless look from the challenger, there’s certainly no love lost. For HBG it’s been nearly FOUR years since she last reached the top of the Vixens division… but if you were to ask her, she’d tell you she’s always been there… For Aria it’s about proving the doubters wrong, proving that she deserves to be here, deserves to have this spot… and there’s no bigger stage than THE STAGE to do it.

WWEFan: AND THERE’S THE FIRST SHOT!! HBG BALLS HER RIGHT HAND INTO A FIST AND SENDS IT FLYING, CATCHING THE CHAMPION IN THE JAW!! ARIA STUMBLES BACK A BIT, SHE DIDN’T EXPECT THAT BUT SHE CATCHES HERSELF AND IS ABLE TO DELIVER A RIGHT HAND OF HER OWN TO HBG!! HBG FIRES BACK, NOW ARIA, BACK AND FORTH THEY GO!! THEY NOW COME TOGETHER AND LOCK ARMS, GRABBING EACH OTHER BY THE HAIR… CONTINUING TO SEND RIGHT HANDS INTO ONE ANOTHER, ALMOST SIMULTANEOUSLY NOW!! HBG RAMPS UP THE ATTACK, LANDING HER PUNCHES AT A MUCH FASTER RATE, THE CHALLENGER SEEMING TO GET THE BETTER OF THE CHAMPION HERE… SHE REARS BACK AND DELIVERS ONE MORE THAT FORCES ARIA TO BACK AWAY!!

Kawajai: ARIA GETS HER FOOTING BACK AND CHARGES BUT HBG IS ABLE TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY, AVOIDING THE ATTACK!! ARIA DIGS HER FEET HARD INTO THE MAT, STOPPING HERSELF BEFORE MEETING WITH THE TURNBUCKLE BUT BEFORE SHE COULD REACT SHE’S TAKEN DOWN WITH A RUNNING FOREARM TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!! HBG LAUGHS AT THE FALLEN CHAMPION, “CHILD’S PLAY” SHE YELLS AT HER!! As she waits for Aria to make it back to her feet she glances over at the table at ringside where the Vixens World Championship sits… her expression suddenly calms and she whispers to herself, “That’s mine.”

WWEFan: Aria gets back to her feet, HBG spins her around and delivers a shot to the face and now takes her by the arm and whips her into the ropes! HBG EXPECTING A REBOUND DUCKS HER HEAD BUT ARIA STOPS HERSELF BY WRAPPING HER ARMS AROUND THE TOP ROPE!! SHE CHARGES AT THE UNSUSPECTING HBG, LIFTS HER LEG UP AND SLAPS HER BOOT RIGHT ACROSS HBG’S CHEST!! THE BLOW BRINGS HBG BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE, AND STUMBLING BACK… THE CHAMPION DARTS AT HER ONCE AGAIN… SHE LEAPS HIGH INTO THE AIR AND BOOM!! AN ELBOW RIGHT ACROSS THE SKULL!! HBG FALLS TO THE MAT AND NOW OUT OF THE RING!!

Kawajai: HBG on the outside, her left hand rubbing her forehead, checking for blood, checking to see if Aria busted her skull open with that elbow! Aria in the ring glances at HBG on the outside… SHE’S LOOKING FOR SOMETHING BIG!! HBG MAKES IT BACK TO HER FEET… JUST AS ARIA DIVES THROUGH THE ROPES!!… AND OH NO SHE’S CAUGHT!! HBG CAUGHT HER, FREE TO DO WHAT SHE WANTS WITH HER!! FALLAWAY SLAM INTO THE BARRICADE, GOOD GOD ARIA’S SPINE!! Aria twisted up like a pretzel on the outside, her torso going one way, her legs going another… HBG gets her back to her feet and throws her into the ring!

WWEFan: The champion crawls to the opposite side of the ring, trying to gain some distance… but HBG grabs her by the legs and pulls her back into the center of the ring… she holds her legs up… NOW LEAPING IN THE AIR AND DROPPING A LEG ACROSS THE THROAT OF ARIA!! Aria down momentarily but makes it back to her feet only to be met by HBG who lands a backhand slap across the face! HBG LIFTS ARIA UP LOOKING FOR A BACK SUPLEX BUT ARIA IS ABLE TO LAND ON HER FEET!! FROM BEHIND SHE HOISTS HBG ONTO HER SHOULDERS… AND DROPS HER DOWN WITH THE ELECTRIC CHAIR!!

Kawajai: Aria needs a breather, she hasn’t had one since she was thrown spine first against the barricade, she’s going to feel the effects of that for the remainder of this match. She gets back to her feet wanting to stay on the attack… she gets a fistful of hair and that gets HBG back to her feet. She applies a front facelock and drags her over into the center of the ring… SHE LIFTS HER UP… LOOKING FOR A VERTICAL SUPLEX!! BUT HBG IS ABLE TO REVERSE!! SHE SHIFTS HER WEIGHT AND TURNS IT INTO A TORNADO DDT!! ARIA’S SKULL BOUNCING OFF THE CANVAS HERE… SHE STUMBLES BACK TO HER FEET AND BACKS INTO THE CORNER!! HBG HAS SET HERSELF UP IN THE OPPOSITE CORNER… SHE COMES STAMPEDING AT ARIA WITH A CLOTHESLINE!!

WWEFan: BUT ARIA WITH A SHOOT KICK TO THE CHEST OF HBG THAT SENDS HER STAGGERING BACK!! HBG AGAIN CHARGES… THIS TIME ARIA SWINGS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK AND IT CONNECTS TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!! HBG IS FORCED TO GO DOWN TO ONE KNEE BUT SHE REGAINS HER COMPOSURE AND COMES RUNNING YET AGAIN… THIS TIME ARIA MEETS HER WITH A REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE!! HBG AGAIN TEETER’S BACKWARDS AND DROPS TO A KNEE… BUT SHE WON’T BE STOPPED!! THREE STRAIGHT KICKS AND SHE’S STILL UP!! RUNNING ON THAT PAIN FOR PRIDE ADRENALINE SHE RUNS AT ARIA AGAIN FULL SPEED!!… BUT ARIA PUSHES HERSELF OUT OF THE CORNER… THE CONTRACT KILLER!! RIGHT TO THE JAW SHE GOT IT!! THAT’LL STOP HBG!! ARIA INTO THE COVER!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO A KICK OUT!!

Kawajai: HBG able to get the shoulder up, the first cover of the match is unsuccessful. Aria back to her feet, as is the challenger… Aria throws a right hand, trying to get something going, she’s in a good spot here and needs to keep the momentum on her side! She fires away, catching HBG with a second right hand! Aria takes a few steps back to get some space between her opponent… SPRINTING AT HBG SHE COMES WITH A HIGH KNEE… BUT SHE’S CAUGHT!! HBG CATCHES THE KNEE… SHE LOOKS TO THROW HER OUT OF THE RING BUT ARIA’S PUTTING UP A FIGHT!! SHE LANDS A FEW FISTS TO THE TOP OF THE HEAD AND HBG HAS TO DROP HER OVER THE ROPES ONTO THE APRON!!

WWEFan: HBG FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A KNEE STRIKE OF HER OWN… THIS ONE CONNECTING RIGHT INTO ARIA’S GUT!! HBG DELIVERS A HARD BLOW OVER THE BACK, TRYING TO GET ARIA BACK INTO THE RING… OH BUT LOOK AT THIS!! ARIA DIPPED HER HEAD DOWN IN-BETWEEN HBG AND SENDS HER FLYING ONTO THE OUTSIDE WITH A BACK BODY DROP!! WAIT!! HBG ON HER WAY DOWN GRABS THE THIGHS OF ARIA… SHE PULLS HER DOWN OFF THE APRON AND ONTO THE OUTSIDE WITH A POWERBOMB!! WHAT A REVERSAL!! BUT HBG TOOK AN AWKWARD LANDING AND NOW BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN!!

Kawajai: That’s two VERY hard moves Aria’s taken on the outside… both affecting the spine! HBG pulls herself to her feet and now gets Aria up as well… she looks to throw her back into the ring… NO!! SHE PULLS BACK ON HER HAIR AND THAT WHIPS ARIA BACK INTO THE BARRICADE HARD… AND IN THE PROCESS IT LOOKS AS IF HBG PULLED OUT SOME HAIR!! SHE SHAKES THE LOCKS IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA BEFORE TOSSING THEM INTO THE CROWD!! She gets the champ back to her feet again… BUT ARIA!! ARIA WITH A BACK SUPLEX AND HBG IS SPRAWLED OUT ON THE TOP OF A BARRICADE LIKE A STAR!! PAYBACK FROM EARLIER!!

WWEFan: Aria reaches to feel the back of her head, she notices the bald spot in the middle of it and pats it a few times… SHE WANTS REVENGE!! SHE HOPS UP ONTO THE RING APRON… AND NOW CLIMBING ONTO THE TOP ROPE!!… HBG STILL SPRAWLED OUT ACROSS THE BARRICADE… ARIA SETS HERSELF AT THE TOP, LOOKING DOWN AT HBG!! THIS COULD BE DISASTROUS!! SHE LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE WITH A FROG SPLASH!! IT CONNECTS!! ARIA RISKED IT ALL THERE AND IT PAID OFF, ALL FOR THE VIXENS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!! BOTH WOMEN GO TUMBLING INTO THE CROWD AS SECURITY COMES IN TO SEPARATE THE CROWD FROM THE COMPETITORS!!

Kawajai: Aria to her feet, she throws HBG over the barricade and back to the ringside area. Aria slides over the barricade and gets HBG back to her feet and props her onto the apron before nudging her into the ring… Aria rolls in behind her. Aria waiting over near the ropes as HBG tries to make it back to her feet. HBG digs her hands into the mat to pull herself up… ARIA SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE, LOOKING FOR THE ONE NIGHT STAND… NO HBG LOCKS HER WAIST FROM BEHIND, PULLING HER OFF THE SECOND ROPE AND ROLLING HER UP!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO… ARIA PUSHES HER OFF!!

WWEFan: BOTH WOMEN JUMP TO THEIR FEET… THE TRAMP STAMP!! HBG CONNECTS OUTTA NOWHERE!! AGAIN THE COVER!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… ARIA AGAIN ABLE TO KICK OUT!!

Kawajai: HBG sits up… perhaps a bit of frustration starting to settle in, she makes it back to her feet and heads out to the apron… NOW BEGINNING TO CLIMB THE TURNBUCKLE!! HBG MAKES IT TO THE TOP BUT ARIA SPRINGS TO HER FEET, SHE RUSHES OVER TO THE CORNER, LEAPS UP AND HITS A DROPKICK CATCHING HBG IN THE LEFT KNEE!! HBG FALLS BACK OFF THE TURNBUCKLE, SHE TRIES TO CATCH HERSELF BY HANGING ON TO THE TOP ROPE BUT SHE DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH STRENGTH AND SHE GOES TUMBLING TO THE OUTSIDE… AND SHE CRASHES RIGHT ON TOP OF THE STEEL STEPS!!

WWEFan: HBG JUST TOOK A NEARLY TEN FOOT FALL ONTO THE STEEL STEPS, LANDING SHOULDER FIRST, ALMOST ON HER NECK!! ARIA REALIZING THE END MAY BE NEAR, SHE RUSHES OUT OF THE RING! SHE PULLS HBG BACK TO HER FEET AND PUSHES HER INTO THE RING, ROLLING HER INTO THE MIDDLE! ARIA FOLLOWS AND HOOKS THE LEG!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… BUT NO!! THIS TIME HBG IS THE ONE TO KICK OUT!!

Kawajai: Aria scoots back into the corner, the action has been lightning quick from the get go, but now she might look to slow the pace down! She gets to her feet… walks over to HBG and KICKS her right in the ribs! She does it a second time…. SHE SWINGS BACK FOR A THIRD BUT THIS TIME HBG CATCHES HER LEG!!… HBG KEEPING A HOLD OF IT AS SHE MAKES IT BACK TO HER FEET… SHE THRUSTS ARIA’S LEG UP, CAUSING ARIA TO FALL BACKWARDS!! HBG GRABS THE OTHER LEG… LOOKING TO LOCK IN THE DRAGON CHAIN!! ATTEMPTING TO TURN ARIAN OVER… AND SHE GOT IT!! DRAGON CHAIN!! THE DRAGON CHAIN, HBG HAS IT LOCKED IN!!

WWEFan: WILL THE CHAMPION TAP OUT!?!?! SHE TRIES TO PUSH HER ARMS UP, TO RELIEVE SOME PRESSURE BUT HBG SQUATS DOWN LOWER, SITTING ON ARIA’S BACK!! SHE CONTINUES TO REAR BACK, ARIA CRIES OUT IN PAIN… TRYING TO REACH THE ROPES BUT SHE CAN’T DRAG HERSELF AND HBG TO GET TO THEM!! NOT ONLY THAT BUT SHE CAN’T REVERSE IT… SHE CAN’T SLIP OUT OF IT!! HBG HAS MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR ARIA TO GET OUT OF THE DRAGON CHAIN!! ARIA’S GONNA HAVE TO TAP, THIS TYPE OF HOLD WON’T MAKE ARIA PASS OUT… SO IT’S A MATTER OF HOW LONG ARIA CAN WITHSTAND THE PAIN!!

Kawajai: IT’S PANIC MODE FOR THE CHAMPION HERE… SHE REACHES BACK, DIGGING HER FINGERNAILS INTO THE BACK OF HBG, CLAWING AWAY AT HER SKIN!! IT’S THE ONLY PART OF HER BODY SHE CAN REACH BUT IT’S NOT GONNA BE ENOUGH TO GET HBG TO BREAK THE HOLD!! SHE CONTINUES TO REAR BACK… PUTTING AS MUCH PRESSURE AS SHE CAN INTO IT… ARIA’S LEGS ARE ALMOST TOUCHING HER OWN BACK!! ARIA REACHES OUT FOR THE ROPES, DESPERATELY STRETCHING AS MUCH AS SHE CAN BUT SHE’S STILL A GOOD FIVE OR SIX FEET AWAY… SHE– SHE’S OUT?!?!

WWEFan: ARIA’S RIGHT BOOT SLIPPED OFF!! HBG HAD SO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE HOLD THAT ARIA’S BOOT SLIPPED OFF!! SHE MANAGES TO FREE THE ONE FOOT!! HBG STILL HAS A HOLD OF THE LEFT… BUT ARIA HOPS UP TO HER FEET… SHE SWINGS AROUND WITH HER FREE FOOT WITH AN ENZIGURI!! IT’S DUCKED!! HBG DUCKED IT AND SHE GOES FOR THE DRAGON CHAIN AGAIN!!… BUT THIS TIME ARIA WON’T ALLOW IT… SHE KICKS HBG OFF OF HER… HBG COMES REBOUNDING OFF THE ROPES AND RUNNING AGAIN, THIS TIME SHE’S MET WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE GUT FROM ARIA!! SHE STRUGGLES BACK TO HER FEET… THE PINKPRINT!! THE PINKPRINT CONNECTS!! HBG IS OUT, BUT ARIA’S DOWN AS WELL!!

Kawajai: THAT DRAGON CHAIN TOOK SO MUCH OUT OF ARIA, SHE’S SPENT!! WHO KNOWS WHAT TYPE OF DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE TO HER LEGS, SHE WAS IN THAT HOLD FOR SO LONG!! COUPLE THAT WITH THE DAMAGE TO HER SPINE SHE TOOK EARLIER IN THE MATCH AND THERE’S NO TELLING WHAT KIND OF INJURIES SHE MAY HAVE!! HBG is starting to stir, Aria is pulling herself to her feet… she missed her opportunity to pin, that might just come back and bite her! Aria still with only the one boot makes it back to her feet, as is HBG on the opposite side of the ring!

WWEFan: AND WE’RE BACK TO SQUARE ONE!! Both women meet in the center of the ring… just like at the start… THIS TIME ARIA THROWS THE FIRST SHOT, A HARD UPPERCUT THAT SENDS HBG BACK UNSTEADY!! SHE LANDS A KICK TO THE MID-SECTION AND HOOKS HBG… LIFTING HER UP… RAGS TO RICHES!! NO!! HBG KNEES ARIA ON THE TOP OF THE HEAD AND LANDS BEHIND ARIA, SHE SPINS HER AROUND… THE EVISCERATION!! THE DOUBLE KNEE FACEBUSTER THAT HBG ADAPTED FROM Y2IMPACT… IT CONNECTS!! ARIA’S DOWN, SHE’S OUT… HBG ROLLS OVER ONTO HER STOMACH… YOU CAN SEE A FAINT SMILE ON HER FACE AS SHE CRAWLS INTO THE COVER… HOOKING THE LEGS, HERE IT IS, WE’RE ABOUT TO CROWN A NEW VIXENS WORLD CHAMPION AT PAIN FOR PRIDE!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THRRRRR— KICK OUT!! NO!! IT’S NOT OVER!! ARIA KICKED OUT!! SHE WILL NOT GIVE UP, SHE KEEPS FIGHTING!!

Kawajai: AND THAT SMILE ON THE FACE OF HBG HAS COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED, SHE’S ENRAGED… I’M NOT SURE AT HERSELF OR AT ARIA!! SHE THROWS HERSELF ON TOP OF THE CHAMPION AND BEGINS PUMMELING INTO HER… RIGHTS, LEFTS, FOREARMS, ELBOWS, HEADBUTTS… HER FRUSTRATION HAS BOILED OVER ALL MATCH FROM NOT BEING ABLE TO PUT ARIA AWAY, AND IT’S POURING OUT NOW IN FRONT OF 81,000 PEOPLE IN NEW MIAMI STADIUM!! THESE BLOWS CONTINUE TO SURGE IN… THEY’VE BUSTED THE CHAMPION OPEN PROFUSELY… HBG WILL NOT STOP!! SHE SLOWS DOWN THE PUNCHES, DELIVERING THEM SYSTEMATICALLY AND LETTING OUT A BLOOD-CURDLING SCREAM WITH EACH ONE!!… AND FINALLY A LAST LEFT HAND, THE MOST VICIOUS ONE SO FAR… AND WITH IT, ONE LAST HAUNTING SCREAM!! SHE’S LEFT THE CHAMPION A BROKEN, BATTERED, BLOODIED MESS!! HBG ON THE VERGE OF TEARS AS SHE TAKES HER HAND AND SLAPS IT ACROSS THE FACE OF ARIA… FORCING HER SHOULDERS INTO THE MAT… THE REFEREE DROPS TO COUNT THE PIN!!…

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!!

( The commentary goes quiet as the stadium erupts into cheers at the kick out. HBG is seen rolling off of Aria, a look of absolute bewilderment on her face. She collapses on her stomach and the camera zooms back out to show both women down in the center of the ring )

WWEFan: The champion has heart and guts, regardless of the result tonight, there is NO ONE, ABSOLUTELY NO ONE that can say she doesn’t belong here or that she doesn’t deserve to be where she is. SHE’S THE CHAMPION FOR A REASON AND SHE’S SHOWING WHY TONIGHT!! Aria raises her arm up into the air and tries to drag herself over to the ropes… meanwhile HBG is pushing herself up… whoever can get to their feet first will have the advantage… HBG’s up… on the far end Aria uses the ropes to pull herself to her feet… SHE TURNS AROUND… HBG ROCKETS UP AGAIN… A SECOND EVISCERATION!!… NO!!! SHE CATCHERS HER MID-AIR!!! PACKAGE DDT!!! WAIT… WHAT?!?! HBG SHOVES HER OFF LAST SECOND!!! BOTH LADIES JOLT TO THEIR FEET TO MEET ONE ANOTHER!!!!… EVISCERATION!!!! IT CONNECTS!!! THE HEART BREAK GAL DRILLS ARIA JAXON IN THE FACE WITH A DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER!!! THE HEART BREAK GAL LOOKS SHOCKED!! SHE CAN’T BELIEVE SHE HIT IT!!! SHE CRAWLS TO COVER ARIA JAXON!!! THIS COULD BE IT!!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOOOO!!!!…. THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

( Ding! Ding! Ding! )

(“King of the World” by Porcelain and the Tramps hits loudly, as The Heart break Gal gets to her knees in amazement, the referee hands her the EAW Vixens Championship.)
Ring Announcer: The winner of this match via pinfall… AND NEWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!…. EAW VIXENS CHAMPIONNNNNNNNNNNNN OF THE WORLDDDDDDDDD!!!!… THEEEEEEEEE HEARTTTTTTTT BREEEEEEEEEAKKKK GALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!

Kawajai: SHE DID IT!!! SHE DID IT!!! THE HEART BREAK GAL DID!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!! THE FOUR YEAR DROUGHT IS OVER!!! SHE’S A FOUR-TIME VIXENS WORLD CHAMPION!!!!

(The Heart Break Gal gets to her feet, with tears in her eyes, Eris LeCava slides into the ring celebrating with her…)

WWEFan: Not only does she win the title… she gets to celebrate the win with one of her closest friends! This is a victory I don’t think HBG will SOON forget! Long may she reign!

(Eris LeCava gets through hugging her — as Aria Jaxon is back on her feet, holding her head, staring at The Heart Break Gal holding the Vixens Championship.)

Kawajai: OH BOY…. THINGS ARE ABOUT TO GET HEATED.

(“King of this World” fades down, as Aria stares down Eris and HBG… she looks around to the silent fans, all curious as to what’s going on — until Aria Jaxon extends her hand.)

WWEFan: It looks like Aria Jaxon is giving her a sign of respect!

(The Heart Break Gal turns to Eris LeCava who repeatedly shakes her head, suggesting she shouldn’t do it… but HBG walks forward, and shakes Aria’s hand.)

Kawajai: SHE SHOOK HER HAND! RIVALRIES ARE PUT ASIDE TO SHOWCASE REAL SPORTSMANSHIP TONIGHT!

Aria Jaxon: (without a mic) You were the better woman tonight, but mark my words… that title will be mine again.

(Aria Jaxon releases her grip, and exits the ring as “King of this World” picks back up, HBG proceeds to celebrate in the ring, while Eris LeCava glares back at Aria… then glares at The Heart Break Gal on the second rope.)

WWEFan: What a beautiful way to end the match! They really put on a classic match, and ended it showing mutual respect for one another! But it doesn’t seem Eris LeCava isn’t thrilled about it…

(The Heart Break Gal switches corner, while Eris LeCava stays in the middle, muttering stuff inaudible words to herself, twitching her head, but smiles widely, as HBG comes back down to hug her, and the camera fades elsewhere.)

( 15 minute intermission )

( During the intermission, Drake takes the stage to perform his song “9” off his album “Views”. )

( Also during the intermission, Kanye West and affiliates take the stage to perform the songs “Champions” and “Fade” to the 81,000 fans in attendance.)

( “Fade” by Kanye West is finishing up in the background and http://i.imgur.com/Yf3Lw8c.png is shown on the screen as the Miami crowd can be heard erupting with cheers)

WWEFan: Kawa… The time has come. This has been, without a doubt, the biggest show we’ve ever witnessed and we’ve had the chance to experience it within the span of this entire weekend, but it all ends here with this match, as we bear witness to the first EVER Fatal 4-Way match for a World Championship in the history of Pain For Pride.

Kawajai: Hey, you don’t have to remind me! I’m still every bit as furious now as I was then when Ares Vendetta and Y2Impact were FORCED to share their Championship bout with Devan Dubian and Tyler Parker! I don’t like it, but you can’t deny the sheer amount of talent amongst all four of these guys.

WWEFan: No you cannot, and you can only imagine what’s going through their heads mere moments away from the biggest match of their careers – no – the biggest match of their LIVES. The final match of the final day of the most historic Pain For Pride in the history of this company for the Answers World Championship.

Kawajai: It’s a match they’re all equally willing to put their lives on the line for!

WWEFan: That’s right, and it’s likewise a match none of them can afford to lose.

(The camera transitions back to New Miami Stadium as the lights in the Stadium go out while the titantron shows clips of Devan Dubian as a child)

“It’s amazing”

“I’m the reason”

“Everybody fired up this evening”

(The Miami crowd roars with cheers as a spotlight appears on Kanye West on the Pain For Pride stage as the entire stage begins to illuminate with footage of Devan Dubian’s life, showing pictures of him as a pre-teen to pictures of him as a teenager training to become a professional wrestler to videos of matches in his early wrestling career)

Kanye: IT’S AMAZIN! SO AMAZIN! SO AMAZIN! SO AMAZIN! IT’S AMAZIN! SO AMAZIN! SO AMAZIN! SO AMAZIN! IT’S AMAZIN!

(The music cuts as Devan Dubian enters the ring while the crowd applaudes both he and Kanye West)

Kawajai: Jesus, what an entrance!

(The lights in New Miami Stadium start to dim down as Devan Dubian paces in the ring)

“Everything starts from now.”

(The faint sound of shifting gears can be heard in the darkness)

“You’re crazy, man.”

(The sounds of gears grows louder)

“You know what? When you said that last time, I was kinda trippin’, right?”

(The sound of gears becomes louder and louder)

“But now… You’re right. I am crazy.”

(The faint figure of a man is shown from up high, wearing a jacket lit up with rapid flashing lights upon it in the shape of gears)

“But you know what else? I don’t give a f*ck.”

(The lights come back on to reveal the entire Pain For Pride stage shifting around like a machine, the screens all around it and titantron alike all camouflaged to look like a machine, and Y2Impact with a light-up jacket standing on a platform at the top of the titantron, posing with his arms out and back turned)

“I don’t give a f*ck about myself.”

(The stage continues to shift as Y2Impact remains unmoving in his pose while the platform he’s on slowly descends)

“You remember that, motherf*cker, cause I’m the one y’all need to be worried about.”

(The platform reaches the stage as the lights go out for a few seconds before they all suddenly come back on with a pyro going off around it and a smug Y2Impact standing amongst it all while the stage continues to shift around like a machine; all while “Goodbye” by Kid Cudi plays loudly throughout the Stadium)

Kawajai: Another absolutely brilliant entrance from this brilliant, brilliant man! Y2Impact truly HAS become The Machine tonight! He knows it just as well as I do and the rest of the World should know!

(Y2Impact makes his way down towards the ring, ignoring the loud boos from the crowd while Devan Dubian looks on)

WWEFan: Definitely an elaborate entrance from the six-time World Champion, as he seeks to make it seven-time here tonight!

(Impact enters the ring and starts taking of his jacket as footsteps can be heard loudly throughout the Stadium)

Kawajai: Now what?

(A huge glass Triforce is shown sitting upon the stage with the loud sound of footsteps)

(The crowd erupts with cheers as “Never Catch Me” by Travis Scott begins to play while Tyler Parker steps out onto the stage, dressed in all green attire – green trunks, kneepads, boots, and wearing a long green robe with a hood that covers his face)

WWEFan: There he is!

(Tyler Parker walks up to the massive glass Triforce upon the stage and stands behind the left piece of it before more footsteps are heard throughout New Miami Stadium)

Kawajai: Hold on, what?

(“Never Catch Me” as the crowd stirs at the sight of a second Tyler Parker making his way out to the stage – this one dressed in blue boots, blue kneepads, blue trunks, and a long blue robe with a hood that covers his face… After a few moments, the second Tyler Parker steps over to the right side of Triforce)

Kawajai: How?! How can there be two?!

(More footsteps are heard as a third Tyler Parker steps out onto the stage – dressed in red boots, red kneepads, red trunks, and a long red robe with a hood covering his face)

Kawajai & WWEFan: THREE?!

(The third Tyler Parker begins to rise until he reaches the top piece of the Triforce as the beginning instrumental of “Never Catch Me” stops)….

(The massive glass Triforce completely shatters as the three Tyler Parkers disappear with it to reveal another Tyler Parker standing amongst the shattered remains – dressed in gold boots, gold kneepads, gold trunks, and a long gold robe with a hood covering his face with a Triforce symbol upon it)

…..

(“Never Catch Me” continues to play as a lit up Tyler Parker removes the hood to reveal himself while the crowd erupts with cheers)

Kawajai: There’s the real thing! What a symbolic intro that was! The real Tyler Parker has stood up and he’s looking better than ever tonight as he makes his way down towards the ring!

WWEFan: Tyler looks as alive as I’ve ever seen him tonight! Just like Impact, this will be the first time he’s ever stood on the final contest at Pain For Pride, and he wants to make the most of it! He wants to taste the Answers World Championship for the first time in his esteemed career!

(Tyler enters the ring and takes off his robe when the entire New Miami Stadium is filled with the deafening sound of a roar heard all throughout it, echoing off of every wall)

(The roar finally stops as the lights in the Stadium fade with it)

(The lights come back on to reveal a stoic Ares Vendetta upon the stage – dressed in all white gear with gold lining throughout it and the Answers World Championship wrapped around his waist – as “Bloodlust” by contRoVersy plays all throughout New Miami Stadium)

(Ares Vendetta stares down with all three opponents standing in the ring as he steps forward, kicking away the remaining glass upon the stage as he makes his way towards the ring, not acknowledging the crowd erupting with a symphony of boos all around him as his eyes remain locked upon his opponents)

Kawajai: Now THIS is what I like to see, Fan! Ares Vendetta didn’t need any fancy, elaborate entrance, and he knows it! All he needs is that Answers World Championship around his waist to prove he’s the best! He aims to keep it that way by the end of this!

WWEFan: I have no doubt about it that he intends to do so, Kawa, but from the look in his eyes, he’s well aware that he’s not the only one determined to walk out of here with that Championship – elaborate entrance or not!

Kawajai: Just look at the expressions on their faces as they eye him! He’s well aware that they’re thinking he believes he’s above each one of them with this simple walk to the ring! He’s trying to get into their heads before this match has even started!

WWEFan: You might be reading a bit too much into it, Kawa, but who knows…

(Ares crouches in the last unoccupied corner of the ring as he, Y2Impact, Devan Dubian, and Tyler Parker all stare down while the Ring Announcer steps into the center of the ring)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall…. AND IT IS A FATAL FOUR-WAY CONTEST FOR THE EAW ANSWERS! WORLD!! CHAMPIOOONNSSHHIIPP!!!…..

(The crowd claps and cheers as the Announcer continues)

Announcer: Introducing the challengers…. First, hailing from San Diego, California!…. He weighed in tonight at 213 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE FACE OF EAW”…. THIS IS TYLER PAAAARRRRRRRRRKKKKKKEEEEEEERRRRRRR!!!…..

(The crowd cheers as Tyler Parker holds up a clenched fist in the air)

Announcer: Secondly, hailing from Seattle, Washington!…. He weighed in tonight at 226 Pounds!…. HE IS THE 2016 GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER…. “THE MACHINE”, Y! TWO!! IMMMMMMPPPPPPPPAAAAAAACCCCCCTTTT!!!….

(Impact smugly poses once more as the crowd erupts with boos)

Announcer: Lastly, hailing from Leicester, England, United Kingdom!…. He weighed in tonight at 230 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE AMAZING EMIR”…. HE IS DEVAN DUUUUUUUBBBBBBBIIIIIIIAAAAANNNN!!!….

(Devan Dubian stares directly at Ares Vendetta, unmoving as the crowd erupts with cheers for him)

Announcer: And now, hailing from the Land of the Rising Sun!…. He weighed in tonight at 217 Pounds!…. HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING ANSWERS CHAMPION OF THE WORLD….. “THE BLACK VULTURE”, ARES VEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDEEEEEEETTTTTAAAAA!!!…..

(Ares takes off the Answers World Championship and steps forward into the center of the ring for all three of his opponents to see as he holds it up)

( We get a birds eye view of New Miami Stadium, showing the packed audience cheering, showing all four men in the ring, as fireworks shoot up from the roof of the stadium into the reddish-colored sky )

Kawajai: I’m getting goosebumps, Fan!

(Ares takes one more look at the Answers World Championship before handing it off to the Referee, who holds it up for each competitor to see, the crowd to see, and then for the hard camera to see while Ares steps back into his unoccupied corner)

WWEFan: It’s zero hour!

(The Referee waits a moment… And calls for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: After all of the hate, after all of the mental anguish – the betrayal, the injuries, the blood spilled, and so much more, nothing else matters but these four men and the Answers World Championship that hangs in the balance as this contest is OFFICIALLY underway as each of the four stare down from their respective corners! Each–

Kawajai: DEVAN DUBIAN CAN’T HOLD BACK FOR EVEN A MOMENT LONGER AS HE EXPLODES OUT OF HIS CORNER AND DIRECTLY TOWARDS THE OPPOSITE SIDE AT ARES!! ARES SEES IT COMING AS HE DUCKS THE INCOMING CORNER LARIAT! An enraged Dubian quickly turns around to see Ares Vendetta not going anywhere! He stands his ground in the center of the ring! ARES EGGS DUBIAN ON TO COME GET SOME! TYLER PARKER BLINDSIDES ARES IMMEDIATELY, LAYING INTO HIM WITH HARD SHOTS! ARES DOING ALL HE CAN TO FIGHT BACK, BUT HE’S COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED RIGHT OFF THE BAT AS DUBIAN COMES CRASHING INTO HIM TO JOIN IN ON THE ASSAULT! Both Tyler Parker and Devan Dubian are absolutely MERCILESSLY laying into Ares Vendetta while Impact looks on, and there’s not a single thing the Official can do about it! It’s all a legal in a fatal four-way!

WWEFan: This is something you know Ares feared, and it’s come to fruition so early on! Ares is still doing all he possibly can to potentially escape this as he’s brought down to his knees as Dubian and Tyler continue to throw shot after shot after shot into him! Impact’s using a smart strategy – letting the two men in this contest with an axe to grind with Ares let out their aggressions on the World Champion here in the early going! He intently watches from the corner as Tyler and Dubian drag Ares into the nearby corner of the ring! They’re just MANHANDLING the Answers World Champion and there’s just nothing he can even do about it! He has no allies in this contest, only enemies, and two of them want to see his head on a spike! HOLD ON, LOOK AT THIS!

(Blood starts to run down the forehead of Ares in the corner of the ring as he gestures towards both Tyler Parker and Devan Dubian for more)

Kawajai: This is unlike Ares! He’s lost it! Ares has usually always come in with some sort of plan to keep himself out of harm’s way, but he seems to be digging his own grave here by asking for more from these two hungry individuals as a furious Devan rushes in with a BIG knee into the face of Ares in that corner! Devan with another knee into Ares! ANOTHER! HE GRABS THE ROPES, USING IT TO HELP HIM APPLY PRESSURE AS HE WASHES THE FACE OF ARES WITH A KNEE! Tyler’s trying to get a piece of Ares, but Devan Dubian looks like a man possessed! He’s been waiting so many months – half a YEAR – to maim this man! All he can see is Ares as Tyler attempts to pull him away! TYLER LOCKS THE WAIST OF DEVAN AND FORCES HIM OFF! Uh oh!

WWEFan: Uh oh is right, that’s the start of something there’s no going back to as Tyler doesn’t even think twice about it before crashing into a battered and bloodied Ares with a boot in the corner! Devan Dubian slowly rises back to his feet.. HE PULLS TYLER OUT OF THE CORNER! DEVAN THROWS A HARD SHOT INTO DEVAN! TYLER FIRES BACK WITH A SHOT OF HIS OWN! JUST LIKE THAT, BOTH MEN ARE EXCHANGING BLOWS AS Y2IMPACT LOOKS ON FROM A NEARBY CORNER!! TYLER CATCHES DEVAN IN THE MID-SECTION WITH A BIG KNEE! THERE’S A SHOT TO THE FACE! ANOTHER! TYLER LOOKING TO FINISH HIM OFF AS HE LEAPS TO THE NEARBY MIDDLE ROPE!! FINAL CHAPTER!!!

Kawajai: HE’S CAUGHT! DEVAN’S CAUGHT TYLER, TRAPPING THE LEG! A MASSIVE EXPLODER SUPLEX SENDS TYLER PARKER FLYING DAMN NEAR ACROSS THE RING AND DROPPING TO THE OUTSIDE!! WHAT A MOVE! Devan just got rid of the only man standing in his way as a still bleeding and still very much hurt Ares Vendetta struggles to pull himself up in the corner of the ring! Devan’s as wild-eyed as ever as he turns his focus back on the World Champion!

WWEFan: EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!! IMPACT BLINDSIDES DEVAN DUBIAN OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A DEVASTATING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT, AND IMMEDIATELY PULLS HIM IN FOR ANOTHER! A THIRD LOUD UPPERCUT CONNECTS AS IMPACT GRABS A HOLD OF DEVAN… AND SENDS HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE NEARBY CORNER OF THE RING AS DEVAN GOES SHOULDER-FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!! The look of satisfaction upon the face of Y2Impact says it all! He could end this right now! Impact turns his attention towards the hurt Ares in the corner! AND HE STARTS PICKING UP STEAM AS IMPACT CHARGES STRAIGHT FOR ARES IN THE CORNER! ARES GETS A BOOT UP FOR THE JAW OF IMPACT!! ARES MAY HAVE A SAVING GRACE IN THIS CONTEST JUST YET, IF ONLY FOR A MOMENT AS IMPACT GOES REELING! ARES STARTS PULLING HIMSELF UP ONTO THE TOP ROPE, LOOKING–

Kawajai: IT’S IMMEDIATELY CUT OFF BY IMPACT WITH A STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI!! Ares has taken one HELL of a beating in the early going of this contest! We’ve seen that the man has an inhuman amount of pain tolerance, but you have to think he’ll be hitting his limit before soon! He’s dazed and confused up on that top turnbuckle as Impact’s back on his feet, throwing a big right hand into the forehead of Ares! There’s a forearm off the face of Ares! Impact verbally berating the World Champion before making his ascent up the corner! He wants to end this! His seventh World Championship is JUST in reach! TOP ROPE EVISCERATION!!!!

WWEFan: NO – JESUS CHRIST – ARES SENDS IMPACT FLIPPING OFF AND TO THE OUTSIDE AS “THE MACHINE” VIOLENTLY CRASHES AND BURNS ON THE OUTSIDE!!! WHERE DID ARES SUMMON THE STRENGTH TO PULL THAT OFF?! I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE THE PAIN THAT JUST SHOT THROUGH IMPACT’S BODY AS HE LANDED FROM THE TOP DOWN TO THE MAT! THAT’LL POP YOUR KIDNEYS LIKE WATER BALLOONS!

(A replay is shown of Ares Vendetta flipping Impact off of him from the Evisceration attempt and crashing to the outside)

Kawajai: Impact should count his lucky stars he missed the steel steps on his way down! I think the bleeding has finally stopped for Ares as he tries to shake the cobwebs out before he makes his next move… Ares may be looking to take a big risk here as he starts to climb up on that top turnbuckle! I don’t know what in the Hell he could possibly be thinking, but he’s got Impact in his sights! Maybe a little payback in a big way! HOLD ON–

WWEFan: TYLER PARKER RUSHES IN, CHARGING UP THE CORNER!! HE’S GOT ARES–BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!!! TYLER PARKER SENDS ARES FLYING ACROSS THE RING WITH A MASSIVE SUPLEX OUT OF THE BLUE!! ARES IS SENT CRASHING LIKE A METEOR DOWN TO EARTH AS HE WRITHES IN PAIN ON THE CANVAS!! TYLER IS BACK IN THIS CONTEST WITH A VENGEANCE AS HE CRAWLS TOWARDS ARES, LOOKING TO END IT! HE MAKES IT – HOOKING THE LEG OF ARES!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: THE COVER IS BROKEN UP AS TYLER IS DRAGGED TO THE OUTSIDE! DEVAN IMMEDIATELY CATCHES TYLER WITH A CLOSED-FIST SHOT TO THE JAW! ANOTHER BIG RIGHT HAND CONNECTS! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! HE GRABS A HOLD OF TYLER AND SENDS HIM CRASHING STRAIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE ON THE–NO! TYLER TURNS IT AROUND, REVERSING IT INTO AN IRISH WHIP OF HIS OWN AS DEVAN IS SENT CRASHING SPINE-FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! Tyler considers getting back into the ring and ending this here and now, but he knows he hasn’t done enough! HE CHARGES AT DUBIAN WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM! DEVAN SEES IT COMING AS HE SENDS THE INCOMING TYLER UP AND OVER INTO THE FRONT ROW! TYLER LANDS ON HIS FEET! He’s not letting his control over this match slip away that easily! He’s hungry! He wants the Answers World Championship and he’ll be DAMNED if he lets anyone get in his way as he stalks Devan from behind that barricade! An unsuspecting Devan turns around as Tyler leaps to the barricade! DEVAN IMMEDIATELY CATCHES TYLER PARKER WITH A GORGEOUS POWERSLAM ONTO THE MAT!!

WWEFan: Devan Dubian is every bit as determined as Tyler Parker – BOTH men want redemption tonight, and only one can take it! Devan hopes to be that man as he drags a battered Tyler back up… He sends him rolling back into the ring and slithers in after him! The look in Devan’s eyes says it all! That malicious intent we’ve come to see time and time again! He eyes both Tyler Parker and Ares Vendetta, waiting for either man to get to their feet! Ares attempts to, but quickly collapses as Tyler rises up! DEVAN STRIKES! BLEEDING EDGE!!!!

Kawajai: It’s no good as Tyler forces Devan off, sending him into the ropes! TYLER CHARGES AFTER DEVAN WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT AND CATCHES HIM AGAINST THE ROPES WITH A BIG HIGH KNEE TO THE FACE! WHAT A SOUND THAT MADE! TYLER MAY HAVE TURNED THINGS AROUND! Tyler’s looking to keep the momentum going while he still can! He charges into the adjacent ropes! DEVAN COMES BARRELING RIGHT AFTER HIM! AN UNSUSPECTING TYLER ATTEMPTS TO COME OFF THE ROPES, ONLY TO BE MET WITH A SICKENINGLY LOUD DISCUS ELBOW SMASH FROM DEVAN DUBIAN!! Devan now looks to follow it up as he goes charging into the opposite side of the ring! TYLER BURSTS FORWARD, COMING FOR HIM! Devan sees it coming this time as he ducks the incoming lariat from Tyler! DEVAN QUICKLY TURNS AROUND AS TYLER LEAPS TO THE MIDDLE ROPE! FINAL CHAPTER!!! AN EMPHATIC FINAL CHAPTER CONNECTS ACROSS THE FACE OF DEVAN DUBIAN OUT OF NOWHERE!! TYLER HAS A CHANCE TO END THIS! TYLER HAS A CHANCE TO PUT DEVAN DUBIAN AWAY AND WALK OUT OF MIAMI AS THE NEW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION IF HE CAN JUST CAPITALIZE!!

WWEFan: THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET! TYLER’S FEELING THE ELECTRICITY COURSING THROUGH THE THOUSANDS IN ATTENDANCE AS HE SEEKS TO PUT THE FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN, GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET AND GRABBING A HOLD OF DEVAN!

Kawajai: NO–TYLER’S TRIPPED UP!! HE’S DRAGGED TO THE OUTSIDE! IMPACT IMMEDIATELY BOMBARDS TYLER PARKER WITH A SERIES OF SHOTS! HE SENDS TYLER PARKER SKULL-FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE ON THE OUTSIDE!! Impact looks absolutely enraged! He’s not finished just yet as he grabs Tyler Parker, dragging him up! Navigating him over to those steel steps… HE PICKS TYLER UP! A MODIFIED BELLY TO BACK DROP AS THE BACK OF TYLER’S SKULL BOUNCES OFF OF THE STEPS!! TYLER MAY BE OUT! That’s a good way to crack your skull! Impact couldn’t give less a damn! He didn’t become a Hall of Famer by giving his opponents any hope of getting back up! He’s as ruthless as they come, and we’re seeing that right now as he rolls back into the ring, eying a still damaged Devan Dubian! Devan’s doing all he can to get back up – I don’t think he even knows Tyler got taken out! HE’S UP AS IMPACT CHARGES! EVISCERATION!!!! HE GOT IT!! THE EVISCERATION CONNECTS AS IMPACT COVERS!! WE HAVE A NEW WORLD CHAMPION!!!

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

WWEFan: THE COVER IS BROKEN UP AS ARES INTERVENES, PUSHING IMPACT OFF! IMPACT LOOKS ABSOLUTELY INSULTED! HE LOOKS DISGUSTED THAT ARES WOULD STOP HIM FROM TAKING HIS SEVENTH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! IMPACT HAS SNAPPED AS HE NAILS ARES WITH A STIFF RIGHT HAND! ARES CAN BARELY DO ANYTHING AFTER THE BEATING HE’S TAKEN AS IMPACT LAYS INTO HIM WITH A FLURRY OF HARD LEFTS AND RIGHTS! Impact starts dragging the World Champion back up, getting in his face! Impact has the hair of Ares clutched tightly in his grasp! The HATE in the eyes of Impact as he pulls Ares up! EVISCERATION!!!! A SECOND EMPHATIC EVISCERATION IN THIS MATCH AS ARES IS LAID OUT!! Y2IMPACT WASTES NO TIME COVERING HIM AS HE TAKES BACK HIS THRONE!!

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

Kawajai: DEVAN BREAKS IT UP!! DEVAN DUBIAN SUCCESSFULLY BREAKS UP THE COVER!! Impact almost looks godsmacked! He looks baffled! He KNOWS he should have finished this contest right then and there! Impact looks absolutely livid – shaking his head as he grabs a hold of a battered Devan Dubian! Dragging him up once more! Impact with a few choice words for Devan as he’s got him up! AND AN EMPHATIC IRISH WHIP SENDS DEVAN CRASHING STERNUM-FIRST INTO THE NEARBY CORNER! Impact is back up on his feet, charging into Devan with a big forearm to the back of the skull! Impact’s had enough of all of this as he just mercilessly lays into the back of Devan’s head with clubbing forearms!! Impact’s got something big in mind as he lifts Devan up, onto the top turnbuckle! He makes his way back over to Ares, dragging him in place for… I don’t know what the Hell he’s thinking… Impact makes his way back over to a set-up Devan, climbing up there! DEVAN THROWS A BIG ELBOW BACK INTO THE MOUTH OF IMPACT! ANOTHER ELBOW CONNECTS! IMPACT DRIVES AN ELBOW OF HIS OWN DOWN INTO THE BACK OF DEVAN’S SKULL! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! IMPACT WITH MORE CLUBBING SHOTS INTO DEVAN BEFORE HE FINISHES THIS! SHARPSHOT FLIP SIDE!!!

WWEFan: TOP ROPE FRANKENSTEINER ONTO DEVAN DUBIAN AS ARES VENDETTA JUST NARROWLY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!!! MY GOD!! ARES IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET UP AS IMPACT REALIZES THE WORLD CHAMPION DODGED WHAT HE INTENDED TO COME DOWN ON HIM WITH! IMPACT–ARES SPRINGS TO HIS FEET AND CHARGES INTO IMPACT WITH A HEINOUS RUNNING KNEE TO THE SIDE OF THE SKULL!!! WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?! ARES MAY NOT HAVE TAKEN CONTROL, BUT HE SAVED HIS ASS WITH THAT AS ALL THREE MEN IN THE RING ARE LAID OUT!!

Kawajai: What a match this has been, Fan – what an absolute WAR it has been! And it shows no signs of stopping just yet as a damaged Tyler Parker looks to get back into the fray as he pulls himself back into the ring, looking to capitalize on the damage dealt to all three men! Ares Vendetta seems to be the only man moving of the three as Tyler rises up to his feet! He pulls Ares in from behind! LOCKING THE WAIST! A BIG GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS! A textbook German Suplex from Tyler Parker, and he’s looking for more as he drags Ares back up! THE WORLD CHAMPION CAN’T DO A THING AS HE’S BROUGHT CRASHING ONTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH A SECOND BRUTAL GERMAN SUPLEX! Tyler’s STILL not finished! He wants the Hat Trick! He wants to punish Ares! He came SO close – so very close – to taking the Answers World Championship from him at Triple Threat, and Tyler looks to rectify that tonight! HE’S GOT ARES BACK UP ON HIS FEET!

IMPACT ESCAPES IT AS HE DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE! Impact may have saved himself there! That could have been the end of the match! Impact has found an opportunity to–LOOK OUT!!

Kawajai: TYLER PARKER CRASHES INTO Y2IMPACT WITH A SUICIDE DIVE WITH SUCH FORCE THAT THE WALL OF THE BARRICADE COMPLETELY COMES DOWN AS THEY’RE BOTH SENT ROLLING INTO THE FRONT ROW OF THIS HOT MIAMI CROWD!! TYLER PARKER IS RUNNING ON PURE ADRENALINE BY THIS POINT AS HE’S ALREADY BACK ON HIS FEET!! HE GRABS IMPACT, PULLING HIM UP!! HE PICKS IMPACT UP ON HIS SHOULDERS!! A POWERBOMB CONNECTS THROUGH THE SEAT OF A NEARBY FAN’S CHAIR!!! TYLER ISN’T STOPPING!! HE’S USING SHEER STRENGTH TO PULL IMPACT BACK UP!! A SECOND POWERBOMB CONNECTS ONTO THE SEAT OF ANOTHER CHAIR IN THE FRONT ROW AS THIS CROWD SURROUNDS THEM!! TYLER STILL – STILL – NOT STOPPING AS HE PUTS EVERY OUNCE OF ENERGY HE HAS INTO PULLING IMPACT BACK UP!! HE’S GOT HIM!! A THIRD CONSECUTIVE POWERBOMB THROUGH THE SEAT OF ANOTHER STEEL CHAIR AS THIS CROWD EATS UP EVERY SECOND OF IT!!

WWEFan: Impact may be OUT- COMPLETELY OUT OF THIS MATCH! We may need a Doctor out here for Impact! Tyler Parker drags himself out of the carnage he left Impact within as he stumbles through the broken barricade and towards the ring! Both Dubian and Ares stir inside the ring, hoping to get back to their feet, but Tyler looks to be the one in control as he eyes the last two men left moving for him to finish off in this contest! Tyler gets back into the ring, rising to his feet with a look–

Kawajai: BLEEDING EDGE?!!!! DEVAN DUBIAN WITH A BLEEDING EDGE?!!!! WHERE IN THE HELL DID HE PULL THAT OUT FROM?! WAS HE PLAYING POSSUM?! TYLER PARKER IS LAID OUT!! DEVAN HAS A CHANCE TO WIN THIS! HIS GOAL IS WITHIN REACH IF HE CAN JUST COVER TYLER!!

WWEFan: I… I don’t think Devan Dubian intends to cover Tyler, Kawa! He looks like he’s got something more in mind as his eyes shift over to the battered, bloodied, Ares Vendetta! Devan looks like a man possessed as he eyes the World Champion! Ares’ luck may have finally ran out as Dubian tastes blood in the water! There’s nobody left to stop him! Impact is out! Tyler is out! They’re all that’s left moving! Ares struggles to get back to a vertical base! HE’S UP! DEVAN TURNS HIM AROUND!! BLEEDING EDGE!!!! IT’S NO GOOD AS ARES FORCES DEVAN OFF AND LANDING ON THE CANVAS!!

Kawajai: DEVAN KICKS OUT! HE’S NOT FINISHED YET! Ares looks absolutely exhausted! HE GOES FOR THE COVER ON A STILL LAID OUT TYLER PARKER AS HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!

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

WWEFan: AND IT’S ONCE AGAIN NOT ENOUGH AS TYLER KICKS OUT! IT’S JUST NOT ENOUGH! THESE MEN ARE FORMER WORLD CHAMPIONS FOR A REASON! THEY’VE FOUGHT TOOTH AND NAIL TO BE THE ABSOLUTE BEST THIS COMPANY HAS TO OFFER, BUT ARES IS DESPERATE TO END IT! HE JUST WANTS THIS NIGHTMARE OVER! HE WANTS TO WALK OUT OF HERE STILL WORLD CHAMPION, NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES! He HAS to keep going! Ares eyes the nearby corner as he forces himself back to his feet! He glances down at the still downed Tyler Parker and Devan Dubian, seeking the end to this once and for all! He stumbles over to the nearest corner of the ring and starts his ascent! If he can capitalize on the damage done to both men, that has to be it! Ares gets to the top! HE’S PERCHED! METEORA!!!!!

Kawajai: TYLER PARKER MOVES OUT THE WAY BEFORE THE METEORA COULD CONNECT AS ARES BARELY CATCHES HIMSELF, ROLLING BACK TO HIS FEET! Look at the eyes of this man! That’s an apex predator if I’ve ever seen one, Fan! He’s not letting this opportunity slide! He eyes Tyler Parker as Tyler struggles to get back up in the nearby corner! Devan is nearly back up!

WWEFan: Tyler and Ares begin to slowly start making their way back to their feet… They lock eyes! If looks could kill, we’d have a double murder on our hands! ARES WITH A LOUD OPEN-HAND CHOP TO TYLER FROM ARES!… ARES WITH A BLUNT RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE OF TYLER THIS TIME!….

THESE MEN ARE FILLED WITH A HATE FOR EACH OTHER! A LUST FOR GOLD, BUT THEY WANT TO HURT EACH OTHER JUST AS MUCH!!

Kawajai: Ares finally puts a stop to the exchange as he crushes into the mid-section of Tyler Parker and drives him into the nearest corner of the ring! A shoulder thrust connects! Ares now with more rapid-fire shots to the face of Tyler! ARES GETS TYLER UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! Devan rushes in with a forearm to the back of Ares’ skull! Ares throws an elbow back into the mouth of Devan! Devan swings as Ares turns around! He ducks the shot from Devan! European uppercut! Another uppercut! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! A FIFTH! SIXTH! SEVENTH!! ARES LOOKING TO FOLLOW IT UP WITH SOMETHING BIG AS HE BURSTS FORWARD INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! HE COMES CHARGING BACK AS DEVAN EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER!! THE LARIAT FROM DEVAN MISSES ITS TARGET AS ARES DUCKS AND RUSHES UP THE CORNER BEHIND HIM WITH A AN EMPHATIC FLASH KICK TO TYLER PARKER!! TYLER NEARLY COMPLETELY DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE FROM THE TOP AFTER THAT KICK, BUT HIS LEG JUST BARELY SAVES HIS HIDE AS HE’S HUNG UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!

WWEFan: ARES STUCK THE LANDING, BUT IMMEDIATELY TURNS AROUND INTO A THESZ PRESS FROM DEVAN DUBIAN!! DEVAN LAYING INTO ARES WITH A SERIES OF SHOTS! THE WORLD CHAMPION CAN HARDLY DEFEND HIMSELF! DEVAN DUBIAN IS LETTING OUT EVERY OUNCE OF FRUSTRATION HE SPENT STUCK ON THE SIDELINES WITH AN INJURY FROM THIS VERY MAN! HE’S GOT A CHIP ON HIS SHOULDER! HE’S GOT DEMONS THAT HE WANTS TO EXORCISE WITH THIS ASSAULT AS HE PUTS A STOP TO THE ATTACK AND DRAGS ARES UP!

He’s got the blood-stained hair of Ares in his grasp as he drags him up! HE PULLS HIM IN! PICKING HIM UP!! FOXES ACE!!!!

Kawajai: NO–THE OVER THE SHOULDER BACK-TO-BACK PILEDRIVER IS NO GOOD AS ARES MANAGES TO ESCAPE, LANDING ON HIS FEET BEHIND DEVAN! HE PULLS DEVAN IN!! DUBIAN IS FIGHTING LIKE A TRAPPED ANIMAL HERE AS HE SWINGS WITH ELBOWS INTO ARES, FORCING HIM INTO THE ROPES!! A MODIFIED BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX SENDS DEVAN DUBIAN UP AND OVER TO THE OUTSIDE, HITTING THE APRON ON HIS WAY DOWN AS HE CRASHES AND BURNS!! Ares somehow just BARELY saving himself there! Tyler Parker is doing all he can to pull himself back up on that top turnbuckle as Ares slowly rises back to his feet… HE CHARGES FORWARD WITHOUT WASTING A SECOND AS TYLER PULLS HIMSELF UP!!

WWEFan: A BUTTERFLY SUPERPLEX FLOATED OVER INTO A CROSS ARMBREAKER!!! A STUNNING MOVE FROM THE WORLD CHAMPION AS ARES EMPHATICALLY APPLIES PRESSURE TO THE RIGHT ARM OF TYLER PARKER!! TYLER HAS BECOME A MAN DESPERATE FOR SOMETHING – ANYTHING – TO SAVE HIM FROM THIS DIRE POSITION! HE’S DOING ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING HE CAN TO GET AWAY FROM THIS, BUT HIS BODY IS WORN, ESPECIALLY AFTER THAT SUPERPLEX! I DON’T THINK HE CAN GO MUCH LONGER!

Kawajai: IMPACT ROLLS BACK IN WITH A CHAIR IN HAND AS HE IMMEDIATELY STRIKES THE SKULL OF ARES VENDETTA WITH IT!! IMPACT IS BACK IN THIS!! THE SCOWL ON HIS FACE AS HE SWINGS THAT CHAIR INTO ARES ONCE MORE AFTER THE VDP WAS BROKEN UP!!

WWEFan: You can tell he’s still in a great deal of agony, but I don’t think he cares anymore! He’s not walking out of here without the Answers World Championship! Impact eyes the laid out Tyler Parker and Ares Vendetta in the ring, possibly thinking over which one he wants to capitalize on… Tyler Parker seems to be the first to show signs of life as Impact wastes no more time and goes straight for him! He drags Tyler up! HE PULLS HIM IN!! FLASHPOINT!!!! THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK GOURDBUSTER CONNECTS ONTO THE KNEES OF IMPACT AS HE GOES FOR THE COVER TO FINISH THIS CONTEST!!

(“Bloodlust” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as Ares, Impact, and Devan Dubian all lie motionless in the ring while EMTs check on Tyler Parker on the outside of the ring)

Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS CONTEST BY PINFALL….. AND SSSSSTTTTTTTTTTIIIIIILLLLLL ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!……… ARES VEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDDDEEEEEETTTTTTTTAAAAAAAA!!!!!

WWEFan: ONE OF THE MOST BRUTAL, BACK AND FORTH CONTESTS I’VE EVER WITNESSED! THESE FOUR MEN ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED ONE ANOTHER FOR THE RIGHT TO WALK OUT OF NEW MIAMI STADIUM AS THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION, AND ARES VENDETTA, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, HAS DONE IT!

(The Referee lays the Answers World Championship down across the chest of a still unmoving Ares Vendetta)
( An overhead shot shows fireworks blasting in the Miami night sky all around the arena and all around the city, and we see the carnage and laid out Answers World Champion from a birds eye view. )

Kawajai: AN UNBELIEVABLE CONTEST! ABSOLUTELY INSANE! THESE FOUR GUYS LITERALLY LAID IT ALL ON THE LINE: THEIR HEART, THEIR DETERMINATION, THEIR BLOOD, THEIR SWEAT, THEIR TEARS, THEIR CAREERS, AND THEIR LIVES! THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING YOU CAN TAKE AWAY FROM ANY ONE OF THESE COMPETITORS!

(Tyler Parker is shown refusing a stretcher, stumbling upon his feet as he grabs a nearby table to keep himself up)

WWEFan: Two years ago, that man’s father attempted this same feat and failed. Ares Vendetta may not look like he’s won anything, he may not even feel like he’s won anything, but if there’s any sort of redemption to be had out of this contest, it would be that!

(Y2Impact is shown yelling at the EMTs attempting to take a look at the laceration on the back of his head as he rips and tears up everything around him out of anger and frustration)

Kawajai: I have no doubt any one of these men could be a World Champion at any possible time, and they proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt! Just, what a match, seriously! Crazy!

WWEFan: Not just what a match, but what a NIGHT! All THREE nights! This has, without a doubt, been the biggest Pain For Pride in the history of EAW, and I’m grateful that I got the opportunity to be a part of it!

(A blood-covered Ares Vendetta sits in the corner of the ring while Devan Dubian, with a glazed over look in his eyes, tries to drag himself to the opposite corner, realizing he lost)

Kawajai: Oh without a doubt! Without a doubt! It’s been an incredible Pain For Pride! INCREDIBLE! I can’t even put it into words! In this one weekend, we’ve witnessed the greatest professional wrestling the World has to offer, and I can’t think of a better way to end it than this!

WWEFan: I want to personally thank you all for joining us here tonight at the ninth annual Pain For Pride, ladies and gentlemen! I want to thank all of the men and women that put their bodies on the line this weekend for a shot at glory! I want say simply THANK YOU!

Kawajai: That’s right, thank you all for this incredible weekend! From Miami, Florida, signing off for WWEFan, I’m Kawajai, and we’ll see you in Season 10! What a show!

(Fireworks and pyro go off all across New Miami Stadium as Ares Vendetta and Devan Dubian sit in opposite corners of the ring, staring down while the camera slowly fades to black)

( “The Fire” by The Roots plays as the Pain for Pride closing credits roll, with pictures, footage and highlights from the last 3 days of Pain for Pride playing on the screen. The names of the Elitists, Vixens, booking agents, ring crew roll down the screen.

And finally a thank you to the EAW Universe, the legends, Hall of Famers, wrestlers of the past and present as well as everybody else who’ve made this Pain for Pride possible! We couldn’t have done it without you! We’ll see you next year. )
