DAY ONE (PRE-SHOW):

(Video package plays, highlighting the feud between Tarah Nova and Cleopatra)

RA: The following contest is a Barbed Wire death match! The match will end by either pinfall, submission, or knockout, and has a thirty minute time limit! There are no rope breaks, no count outs, and no disqualification!

(“ChiRaq” by Nicki Minaj plays as a procession of Egyptian garbed ‘priestesses’ begin to walk out, their heads bowed low. As the music continues, Cleopatra herself makes her appearance at the stage, her garb inlaid with gold and sparkling with ‘diamonds’ it appears. As she continues to walk down the entrance ramp she lets two of the bigger priests lift her up and set her onto the apron.)

RA: Introducing first, from Montreal, Canada! She is the Queen of the Nile and the Empire General Manager! None other than: CLEOPATRA!!!

Starr Stan: Save us from the reign of Tarah Nova Cleopatra! Only you can save us!

SG1: Would you stop that?! Look, I appreciate all that Cleopatra has done for Empire, but she’s also probably one of the most…sickening and abusive general managers we have had, using her power to pull strings and generally make life a living hell for everyone. I’m not a fan of her at all, but…well…that’s how it is.

Starr: Fake news, all of it. Cleopatra has been the least biased and most professional woman on our entire roster, and that’s the honest truth!

SG1: Right…

(“You think I’m just a doll. A doll that’s pink and light. A doll you can arrange anyway you like. You’re wrong. Very wrong. What you think of me is only a ghost of time. I am dangerous. And I will show you just how dark I can be.” rings out across the loudspeakers. As Harley Quinn’s voice fades out “Wreak Havoc” by Skylar Grey plays. Barking can be heard, followed by animalistic laughing before pyro goes off and Tarah Nova races forward, holding on a leash two spotted hyena’s. Their manes painted Green and Purple respectively.)

RA: And her opponent! From Detroit, Michigan! She is the Vixen Killer! Tarah Nova!!!

Starr: LET’S GO TARAH! KICK THAT DESPOT’S ASS BACK TO THE STONE AGE AND LEAD US TO GREATNESS!!!

SG1: Starr…Starr…are you cheering for both sides just in case one wins so you don’t get fired?

Starr: Exactly. I mean, what else would I do? Listen, this place is going to be in anarchy depending on who wins what right? Might as well make sure you are on the side of winning team no matter what.

SG1: Talking about this match in particular, this match honestly benefits Tarah Nova a bit more rather than Cleopatra. Tarah is willing to do anything and everything to win this matchup, and that also means facing her own fears.

Starr: That flicker of fear that showed on Tarah’s face when Cleopatra proclaimed that this would be a barbed wire death match. After her encounter with Eclipse, seemingly that’s the only thing she fears anymore. So maybe the advantage does actually go to Cleopatra.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

SG1: Well, we are about to find out. Tarah Nova glancing over at the barbed wire ropes and moving forward cautiously, hoping to not touch them. Cleopatra doing the same, trying to stay as close to the middle of the ring as possible. Cleopatra going for the right hand of Tarah but Tarah yanking her hand away, throwing a hard kick to the stomach of Cleopatra and now we have a fight! Cleopatra throwing a jaw jacking punch to Tarah’s jaw and now the slugfest happens! Forearms by Cleopatra trying to force Tarah into the barbs but Tarah throws some elbows of her own towards Cleopatra. Both girls going back and forth in these strikes and now Tarah wrapping her arm around the arm of Cleopatra! Irish whip and Cleo stops herself just short of the ropes!

Starr: But here comes Tarah! Tarah running right for her but Cleopatra scouts it and dodges to the side and Tarah goes leg first into the barbed wire! Tarah’s leg caught in the wire and she’s screaming in agony right now, and now here comes Cleopatra! Cleopatra with a devastating kick to the thigh of Tarah Nova! Tarah pulling her leg from the barbs but Cleopatra is already right on top of her, throwing more strikes to push her against the barbs. Tarah shoving Cleopatra off and here she comes again but this time Tarah responds, catching her with a big boot right to the skull!

SG1: Cleopatra stunned and rocking backwards but here comes Tarah again, delivering a knee to the stomach and now spinning around to deliver another boot to the top of the head! Cleopatra falling back and Tarah yanking her up to her feet by her hair, delivering a knee right into the nose of Cleopatra. And now Tarah is going all out, continuing to grab her by the hair and yank her up for another knee to the skull. And now Tarah is just drilling her with knees.

Starr: And check this out! Tarah dragging Cleopatra by the hair towards the barbs and now just digging her forehead into the barbs! Tarah finally getting a modicum of revenge on Cleopatra here as she drags her forehead across the barbs and yanks her from them throwing her straight to the ground and pinning her boot right onto the throat of Cleopatra. Cleopatra writhing away from her, and finally pushing herself away from Tarah, dragging herself to the middle of the ring as Tarah Nova follows after her. Tarah wants to end Cleopatra quickly. She wants her to suffer and drown in her own blood…which is honestly how I think this match is going to go. Because I don’t see Cleopatra just laying on her back and quitting. Tarah checking her knee, noting the blood that is flowing from it right now.

SG1: Yeah but that’s just giving Cleopatra time to get up, and she’s taking it. Cleopatra up to her feet and delivers a painful kick to the knee of Tarah which causes her to stumble back. Cleo following that up with a knife edge chop and forcing her into the barbs and now Cleo has Tarah where she wants her! Blood covered face and all, Cleopatra is throwing heavy strikes to the skull and body of Tarah Nova, lighting her up with these punches and finishing them off with a final kick to the chest forcing her entire back into the barbs!

Starr: Cleopatra walking away from Tarah to the chorus of boos from the crowd as she primes her fist. Tarah is stuck in the barbs! No way of getting out! CLE-O!!! KNOCKOUT PUNCH BY CLEOPATRA TO TARAH NOVA’S JAW AND TARAH DROPS STRAIGHT DOWN FROM THE BARBS, HER HANDS HANGING STRAIGHT UP! GOD! TARAH MIGHT JUST BE OUT! Cleopatra just staring down at her and ordering the ref to check her. Tarah has to be unconscious for a ten count! Cleopatra may have just won this one!!!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

FOUR!!

FIVE!!

SIX!

SEVEN!

SG1: Wait! Wait! Tarah is starting to stir! Cleopatra’s back is turned but Tarah is pulling herself up, the barbed wire still wrapped around her arms!!! Tarah struggling up and…TEARING THE BARBED WIRE OFF OF THE TURNBUCKLES!!! JESUS!!! TARAH ACTUALLY YANKING THE ENTIRE SHEET OF BARBED WIRE WITH HER! CLEOPATRA TURNING AROUND TO LOOK AT THE SIGHT, AS TARAH IS STANDING TALL AND LOOKING DIRECTLY AT HER!!! CLEOPATRA CHARGING RIGHT FOR HER AND TARAH CATCHING HER IN THE SKULL WITH A JUMPING KNEE TO THE FOREHEAD!!! AND THE BARBED WIRE CAUGHT HER THERE AS WELL!!! TARAH NOVA JUST DRILLED CLEOPATRA DIRECTLY IN THE SKULL WITH THAT MOVE!!!

Starr Stan: CLEO IS STAGGERED!!! AND TARAH HOOKING HER ARM AROUND THE THROAT OF CLEOPATRA, SPINNING HER AROUND! REVERSE DDT INCOMING MAYBE?! MAYBE?! NO!!! TARAH WITH A GTR!!! LARIAT TO THE CHEST OF CLEO WHO DROPS DIRECTLY INTO THE BARBED WIRE KNEE OF TARAH NOVA!!! HER WHOLE BODY ARCHING BACK, AND HER BLOOD JUST POOLING OUT OF HER SPINE!!! TARAH MAY HAVE JUST PUT THIS AWAY!!!

SG1: Not quite yet. Not quite yet! Tarah wants to destroy her. Tarah wants her to suffer. And Tarah is going to do just that. Tarah picking up the lifeless body of Cleopatra and setting her on her shoulders! Tarah Nova signaling for the end here!! MURDER! CITY! PLUNGE!!! TARAH NOVA DRILLING CLEOPATRA’S SKULL INTO HER KNEE AND CLEOPATRA SLUMPS TO THE GROUND WITH BLOOD JUST POOLING OUT OF HER BODY! TARAH NOVA HAS ALL BUT WON THIS, AND SHE HAS DONE IT WITH AN EMPHATIC STATEMENT!!!

Starr: Tarah now gingerly placing her body on top of Cleopatra, going for the cover!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

RA: Here is your winner, and the new Empire General Manager!!! TARAH!!! NOVA!!!

SG1: I can’t believe it! I honestly can’t! Tarah Nova said that she would make her pay! She said that she would put her away!!! And Tarah did not lie! She did not waver! Tarah Nova did indeed do the impossible! Tarah has beaten the woman that thought herself invincible! And Tarah has done it with an emphatic statement here tonight!

Starr: Tarah Nova told the world that she was going to beat Cleopatra to death, and that is what she did! She destroyed Cleopatra, and now it is undeniable what the plan is moving forward. For Tarah, whether she wins the EE or not, is going to take her place on Empire as its new General Manager! I’m Starr Stan, that’s SG1 and we will see you right back here LIVE for Pain for Pride!!!

(Video package plays, highlighting the feud between Stuffed Crust and The High Rollerz for the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships)

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen… this next TABLES, LADDERS AND CHAIRS TAG TEAM CONTEST IS FOR THE UNIFIED TAG CHAMPIONSHIPS!! THE ONLY WAY TO WIN IS TO CLIMB A LADDER AND RETRIEVE THE CHAMPIONSHIPS…

Pierre: They have one hell of a tall order to get past to do so. Both men look fired up and in a stipulation like this, anything and everything could happen.

(Both Lioncross and Nobi enter the ring and look up at the championships above before turning their attention back up to the stage waiting for the champions to make their arrival.)

(“I Get Money” – 50 Cent hits as The High Rollerz make their way through the curtain to a THUNDEROUS roar of boos.)

Cherish: Don’t count Stuffed Crust out before the match begins, Pierre. Pain for Pride is the event where miracles can happen.The High Rollerz look focused, but so do Stuffed Crust. This one is going to be a barnburner, I have no doubt about it!

(The High Rollerz stand before the ring and take a look at the Tables, Ladders and Chairs set up around the ring, before grabbing a chair each and making their way into the ring.)

Cherish: THE HIGH ROLLERZ AREN’T WAITING TO GET THIS ONE STARTED!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Cherish: BOTH DAVIDSON AND RIPLEY SWING THEIR CHAIRS WILDLY – BUT, BOTH LIONCROSS AND NOBI DUCK UNDERNEATH! RIGHT HAND FROM LIONCROSS TO RIPLEY!! A LEFT FROM NOBI TO DAVIDSON!!

LIONCROSS STANDING IN THEIR WAY AS NOBI QUICKLY CLIMBS UP — BUT THE HIGH ROLLERZ GRAB LIONCROSS BY THE ANKLES AND SLIDE HIM OUT OF THE RING!! RIPLEY SENDS HIM CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE AS DAVIDSON SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING AND RUSHES UP THE LADDER, GRABBING NOBI BY THE ANKLE BEFORE HE CAN UNHOOK THOSE CHAMPIONSHIPS!!

Pierre: Davidson yanking Nobi back down, but Nobi lands on his feet! Davidson with a stiff spinning back kick to the stomach, dropping Nobi down to a knee – BEFORE DAVIDSON GRABS HIM BACK THE HEAD AND DRIVES IT INTO THE LADDER!! Nobi grabbing at his head as he rolls out of the ring; Ripley driving his boot into the ribs of Lioncross as Davidson picks up a full head of steam AND FLIES OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH THE TOPE CON HILO TAKING OUT NOBI!! These men not looking to warm up in the slightest! Nobi is down; Lioncross is trying to get back to his feet, but Ripley maintains that pressure. Both High Rollerz locking eyes; they don’t need to say anything, they’re both completely on the same wavelength. Davidson rolling back into the ring and begins to climb that ladder already set up in the ring, but Nobi is already back up and clubs him in the back! But, there’s Ripley! RIPLEY WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF NOBI!! NOBI GOES DOWN!! THIS MATCH COULD BE OVER BEFORE IT REALLY EVEN BEGINS!! LIONCROSS!! LIONCROSS GRABBING RIPLEY AND SENDS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE!! DAVIDSON FROM BEHIND!! LIONCROSS TURNS INTO A ROUNDHOUSE!!

Cherish: THAT WAS BRUTAL, BUT LIONCROSS DOESN’T LOOK FINISHED IN THE SLIGHTEST!!

Nobi’s back into the ring and Lioncross instructs him to set that ladder up and start climbing. Lioncross said that he can take care of those two, and with that chair in his hand, he may just do so. Nobi grabbing that ladder and sets it up and begins to climb up high! Lioncross lifting that chair high into the air and DRIVES IT INTO THE SPINE OF JACK RIPLEY! NOBI INCHING CLOSER AS LIONCROSS DRIVES THAT CHAIR INTO THE SPINE OF RIPLEY AGAIN!!

Pierre: COME ON, GUYS!! Lioncross turning his attention to David Davidson – BUT DAVIDSON POPS BACK TO HIS FEET AND DRIVES HIM SHOULDER UNDER THE RIBS OF LIONCROSS AND SENDS HIM INTO THE LADDER!! THE LADDER GOES DOWN AS NOBI COMES CRASHING BACK DOWN WITH IT!! DAVID DAVIDSON TAKING CARE OF TWO PROBLEMS IN ONE SWIFT MOTION!!

Jack shakes his head as Nobi rolls onto the apron and drags himself back up with the help of the ropes; Nobi’s back up – BUT ONLY FOR JACK RIPLEY TO DRIVE BOTH FEET INTO HIS CHEST WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK, AND NOBI FLIES BACK OFF THE APRON AND CRASHES THROUGH A TABLE!! ONE MAN DOWN AND NOW THE HIGH ROLLERZ TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO LIONCROSS!! Lioncross getting back to his feet, but Davidson and Ripley stands on either side of the man! Lioncross back up, BUT IS SENT BACK DOWN AS DAVIDSON GOES LOW WITH A LEG SWEEP AND RIPLEY FIRES AT THE CHEST WITH A SHOOT KICK!! IT WAS A GALIANT FIGHT, CHERISH, BUT THE HIGH ROLLERZ ARE MOVING CLOSER TO RETAINING THEIR TITLES!!

Cherish: Davidson looking to grab that ladder, but Ripley cuts him off. He wants to make sure they’re going to stay down. Nobi is barely moving. Lioncross is defiantly getting back to his feet. Ripley pointing to another table to the outside as smiles cross the face of both of the High Rollerz. Lioncross is back to his feet, but Davidson meets him with a kick to the stomach and pulls him in! I have a bad, bad feeling Pierre! Davidson powering Lioncross up onto his shoulders with the help of Jack Ripley – NO!! NO!! OH MY GOD!! LYONCROSS SENT CRASHING FROM THE RING AND THROUGH A TABLE WITH A POWERBOMB!!

Pierre: HOLD YOUR HEADS HIGH, BOYS!! ANOTHER TEAM BITES THE DUST!! WHO CAN TAKE THESE CHAMPIONSHIPS OFF THEM?!

(The High Rollerz exit the ring as Nobi recovers on the outside; Lioncross still hasn’t moved. Both Davidson and Ripley walk past Lioncross and wave goodbye before arrogantly making their way back up the ramp, obviously in pain. The stand on the stage and raise their titles in the air before the camera cuts elsewhere.)

 

 

DAY ONE (Main Show):

( EAW Intro plays )

( The intro sounds of “I’ll Keep Coming” by Low Roar starts, with the original logo fluttering on the screen… the opening footage shows CM Banks – then known as CM Ronn, at a press conference with Mak and Evan, shaking hands with major execs from Yahoo!, and other well established billionaires such as John Conning, James Shields, and other members of the current EAW Board of Directors. )

( We get a collage of news stories reporting the first year of EAW’s existence. )

TV news host: Apparently a new show is in town in the land of the squared circle, they’re backed by major North American investors seeking to take a different approach at the resurgence of mainstream professional wrestling. This one calls themselves “Extreme Answers Wrestling.

Female TV news voice: An upstart by three professional wrestlers themselves – lead by CM Ronn! Who claims they want to offer the alternative to what the mainstream business has to offer now. This one looks like it might have potential.

( The intro of “I’ll Keep Coming” continues. We see the fluttering of the AWF: EAW logo and soon see newspaper and brief press coverage on EAW closing due to internal conflicts, with AWF quickly acquiring the company and turning it into a brand. )

( We see the reign of Mak as the EAW Champion with Jenny at his side in his legendary reign of complete dominance. We see CM Ronn in competition. The footage also airs the genesis of the careers of wrestling’s most influential figures who would change the course of history; such as Jaywalker, Killswitch, Master of Puppets, among others. )

Male news pundit # 2: The Answers Wrestling Federation which is the leading wrestling organization in the world, currently, seems to have a new flagship show: EAW!

Female ESPN anchor: EAW yet again drawing the highest ratings of the AWF wrestling league, perhaps solidifying themselves as the premiere brand after a month long streak of dominance!

( The intro of “I’ll Keep Coming” nears its end, with press coverage showing the collapse of AWF in Winter 2007, as well as the emergence of two different companies: Answers Championship Wrestling and Extreme Answers Wrestling. )

“Faintly I’ll go”
“To take this head on”

Sports Anchor: One can’t help but be pessimistic, I’m not liking EAW’s chances this time around. Could we see a repeat of before?

Sports co-Anchor: Given EAWs track record and ACWs dominance, I don’t see them lasting two months.

The EAW 08′ symbol flutters on the screen, and we see CM Banks at a press conference in January 2008 with EAWs mega-star acquisitions from AWF: HRDO and Mr. DEDEDE, who stand by posters of EAWs newest creations: “Showdown” and “Dynasty”. We also see a younger Jaywalker, Masters, CIC, and the rookie versions of Captain Charisma and Rated R Shaman in the background with ambitious looks on their faces.)

CM Ronn (overheard): EAW will go to the top and stay there forever! It’s time for a new era, and the time is now……..

Low Roar: “Soon I’ll come around
Lost and never found”

(We see the cult like following of EAW in the form of fans lined outside of venues, chanting vehemently in the crowds, and EAWs Extremists embracing the fan base while putting on the most brutal and hardcore matches on both Showdown and Dynasty.)

( We see press coverage, as well as EAW coverage of the growing popularity and sizes of the EAW fanbase in the heated ratings war between EAW and ACW… )

News anchor # 3: For decades it’s been a financial gamble to invest in United States pro-wrestling. Now with two giants running around in EAW and ACW, it’s kill or be killed for every wrestling company!

“Waiting for my words”
“Seen but never heard”

( The ratings war is continually covered…. until the announcement for the EAW extravaganza: Pain for Pride becomes publicized. )

Sports anchor (overheard): They’re billing this as the biggest show of the year.. but what happens if it flops?

“Buried underground.”
“But I’ll keep coming.”

( The music continues, and the video opens up to Madison Square Garden at Pain for Pride 1, with flashes of news coverage highlighting the records being broken.We see fans piling into the arena, as well as an EAW rally/viewing party taking place in Times Square. Visuals show highlights from some of the most iconic encounters: including Y2Impacts Pain for Pride debut, Captain Charisma’s instant classic match with Rated R Shaman, Jaywalker taking the World Heavyweight Championship into the Main Event of Pain for Pride, Sabina capturing the Vixens Championship, Masters holding up the EAW Championship after winning it in an epic battle, and the Match of the Year award winning contest between Mr. DEDEDE and HRDO with CM Ronn as the referee. )

News Anchor (overheard): The success of Pain for Pride has created a meteoric rise, pushing EAW far ahead of it’s competition!

( Press coverage shows EAW winning ratings battles, “EAW declares victory”, “Big time investment payoff for EAW”, “Pain for Pride: A box office genie in a bottle.”

News co-anchor (overheard): Pain for Pride in Madison Square Garden without question has changed the landscape of the entire sport, now the only question is; where does it go from here?

( A rapid flash of time and events pass…. until we see press coverage for Pain for Pride 2, being headlined by Mak, Captain Charisma, Mister K, Jaywalker and Mr. DEDEDE. It covers PFP 2 being sold out, with a newspaper front page story of EAW acquiring ACW, and coverage on the anticipation of CM Banks’ first Pain for Pride appearance as a performer, as well the up and coming team of RoViper set to make their Pain for Pride debut. )

Low Roar: “Wipe those tears off”

( We see Extreme Enigma ascending the ladder to win Cash In The Vault, and cut to a shot of him on the ramp holding the briefcase with tears running down his face. )

“And make your heart proud”

( We see Mr. DEDEDE and Jaywalker shaking hands following their iconic match, RoViper celebrating for the brief moment they could after winning their Tag Team Championship match, as well as Captain Charisma closing out the show as the new EAW Champion. Press coverage shows the success of Pain for Pride 2. )

“Soon I’ll come around”
“Lost and never found”

Sports radio host (overheard): EAW reaches uncharted territory now. They are the undisputed kings of their castle, they are up there with the top leagues regardless of sport – but are they prepared for the world stage that awaits?

( Press coverage at the time shows EAW entering the New York Stock Exchange in 2009, becoming a publicly traded company with it’s conglomerate of wealthy supporters who have backed it from the beginning. )

“Waiting for my words”

We all know what tonight and tomorrow are all about! We know we’ve got four World Championships on the line, careers on the line, pride on the line – EVERYTHING on the line!

Stew: No doubt about it, and I’ll try to restrain myself, but I make no promises! Let’s take you over to our fellow broadcasters here tonight: Empire’s own StarrStan and SG1!

(The camera cuts to StarrStan in a suit and SG1 in a dress at their position on Empire’s Announce Table)

Starr: It’s great to be back here, and it never ceases to amaze me how many people they’ve managed to pack into this place! Last year at Pain For Pride, I ended my career right there and that ring and tonight, we get to witness people spill blood, sweat, tears, and the remainder of THEIR careers in that very same ring!

SG1: Not only that, but tonight happens to be a historic night for the Womens Division as we witness the first Womens World Championship bout in Pain For Pride history!

Starr: That’s right, and you can be sure the new Empire General Manager, Tarah Nova, is gonna be watching that one closely! Now let’s take it away to our colleagues over on Voltage Commentary, WWEFan and Kawajai!

(The camera cuts to a smiling WWEFan alongside Kawajai as both men are dressed in suits, sitting at the Voltage Announce Table)

Kawajai: Why did Dynasty get the cool spot up near the stage again? We belong up there, Fan! They’re lucky it’s Pain For Pride or I wouldn’t let that slide so easily! This is a monumental weekend and not even they can bring it down for me!

WWEFan: Whatever you say, Kawa, but you’re absolutely right, this is a truly Legendary night just as tomorrow will be as we watch stars become superstars and superstars become Legends! I can’t wait! Let’s take you over to Showdown’s team of Pierre McGuire and Cherish!

(The camera cuts to Pierre McGuire in a suit, alongside Cherish in a dress at Showdown’s Announce Table)

Pierre: An incredible scene here at MetLife, Cherish, and I couldn’t think of a better person to spend it with than you!

Cherish: Aww, thanks, Pierre, you managed to not sound creepy about it for once!

Pierre: Why thank you, I’m usually very nervous, but that perfume you’ve got on tonight is keeping me at ease, or is that just your natural scent?

Cherish: Annndd you made it creepy. Nice try though! Nonetheless, I’ll try to overlook that and do my job because we’ve got an incredible night ahead of us filled with the absolute BEST you’re ever going to find in professional wrestling today!

Pierre: The stars have aligned, the Stadium is packed to capacity, the lights are bright, and the night is ready to get started off! What better way to do that than with a Showdowh contest? Let’s not hold it off any longer and get Day One of Pain For Pride 10 started off with our first match of the night!

( http://i.imgur.com/CdJ1Nfn.png appears on the titantron before the camera turns over to the ring announcer standing in the middle of the ring with the capacity crowd on their feet.)

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

(“Shock Me” by Baroness echoes throughout MetLife Stadium with the sea of people shooting up to their feet in response, cheering in excitement for Stark appearing on the stage, dressed in a custom vest and tights with psychedelic designs on them, taking in the adulation of the crowd to give him a dose of adrenaline while he walks down the ramp to the ring.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing the challenger, he is from New York City, New York… weighing in 210 pounds… “The Psychadelic Samurai” STTAAARRRRKKKKK!!!

Pierre McGuire: After years of being unable to claim the EAW National Elite Championship, Stark arrives into his second Pain for Pride match on the grandest stage that he could possibly be able to attempt to achieve this goal! Stark found a way to be able to win a Fatal Four-Way Contender’s Match to earn this opportunity with the pressure weighing down on his shoulder!

Cherish: Stark has been determined to dethrone the champion and tonight, he has the opportunity to do just that on such a prestigious event! This would be an amazing Pain for Pride moment in his career to be able to win the championship here tonight!

(“Burn In My Light” by Mercy Drive erupts from the speakers as the crowd goes ballistic for the EAW National Elite Champion Rex McAllister, walking out with the Championship on his shoulder, dressed in black and white tights with a custom hooded vest, before he holds it up high in the air in pride to walk down the ramp.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, he is from Sea Isle, New Jersey… he weighs in at 238 pounds… he is the EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION… “The Rex Master” REEEXXXXX MCCAAALLLLLLIIISSSTTTEEEERRRRR!!!

Cherish: The National Elite Champion makes his Pain for Pride debut in its tenth iteration! He has prevailed against every challenger that has stood against during his reign with the championship, making it known the world that tonight will be no different, even under the brightest spotlight in EAW!

Pierre McGuire: The confidence that Rex McAllister has in himself to walk out of here tonight with his National Elite Championship still in his possession has been displayed throughout the rivalry between these two men, but with merit. He’s been a phenomenal champion and a moment like this would only add to the prestige that he has given to the title already!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Pierre McGuire: The first match of the most monumental event of EAW history has been called to begin and it’s all for the EAW National Elite Championship! The champion Rex McAllister has already handed our referee the championship and jumping up and down with the adrenaline of the moment running through his veins while Stark looks to be calm and collected about this fight that he will take on with him! Both men walk around the ring with both men having a stand-off between each other WHEN STARK LOOKS FOR THE STRIKE TO HIS LEG ONLY FOR REX TO SHOOT BACK TO AVOID IT!

Cherish: Stark firing the first shot in this match to get under the skin of Rex McAllister as both men continue to walk around the ring BEFORE FINALLY GETTING IN WITH THE GRAPPLE TO WHERE STARK GRABS REX BY THE ARM AND TWISTS IT AROUND FOR THE ARM WRINGER ON HIM! Stark twists his arm as Rex winces in pain WITH STARK DRIVING HIS ELBOW TO THE BACK OF HIS ARM TO ADD ONTO THE DAMAGE! Rex seethes in pain when the blow strikes BUT IS ABLE TO FLIP FORWARD TO BE ABLE TO SPIN HIS ARM OUT OF THE CONTROL OF STARK AND GOES AROUND TO HOOKS HIS ARM ON THE WAIST OF STARK! COULD BE LOOKING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX RIGHT HERE!

Pierre McGuire: BACK ELBOW STRIKE! STARK RATTLES REX MCALLISTER WITH THAT SHOT AS HE SPRINTS INTO THE ROPES BEFORE HE RUSHES IN FOR THE EGO DEATH! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO HI– REX MCALLISTER SIDESTEPS AWAY FROM THE KNEE STRIKE AND DROPS HIM TO A KNEE WITH THE CHOP BLOCK TO THE KNEE! Stark is down as Rex grabs him from the back of his head to hoist him up on his feet WHEN REX FLIPS HIM BACK DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS WITH A SIDE-HEADLOCK TAKEOVER! REX KEEPS HIM LOCKED INTO THE GRAPPLE TO KEEP HIM GROUNDED, BUT YOU CAN SEE STARK START TO ROLL AROUND TO BE ABLE TO PICK HIMSELF UP! Stark stands on his two feet LIFTING HIM UP FOR THE BACKDROP SUPLEX… ONLY FOR REX TO USE HIS BODY WEIGHT TO DROP HIM BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS TO KEEP HIS ARM AROUND HIS THROAT!

Cherish: Stark isn’t going to allow this to continue for much longer as he powers his way straight back up to his feet and starts to force Rex McAllister into the ropes! Stark keeps the pressure onto him as Rex is forced to release him from his grasp, but what is Stark doing? He rises up from him and when Rex starts to walk away from the ropes WHEN STARK GOES FOR AN ELBOW STRIKE TO HIS FACE… ONLY TO SHOW IT WAS FEIGNED AS HE PATS REX ON THE CHEST! Rex McAllister grabs him by the neck and throws him into the ropes LOOKING TO STRIKE HIMSELF… BUT HE TREATS STARK IN THE SAME MANNER AS HE PATS HIM ON THE CHEEK! Stark chuckles and walks forward with that smile on his face ONLY FOR HIM TO GRAB REX BY THE NECK AND FIRE OFF INTO HIS CHEST WITH DEVASTATING KNEE STRIKES!

Pierre McGuire: STARK IS JUST BURYING THOSE KNEES INTO THE CHEST OF REX MCALLISTER BEFORE HE GRABS HIS HEAD TO SNAPMARE HIM DOWN TO THE FLOOR! Rex lies down the canvas WHEN STARK LOOKS TO DRIVE HIS BOOT DOWN TO STOMP HIS HEAD IN! NO! REX IS ABLE TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY AND GET TO HIS KNEES, BUT STARK CATCHES IT AND SWINGS FOR THE FENCES WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE HEAD! REX DUCKS UNDER THE ROUNDHOUSE KICK AND SHOOTS RIGHT UP TO HIS FEET! Stark faces the National Elite Champion MET WITH A COMBINATION OF ELBOW STRIKES BEFORE A SHOOT KICK BLASTS HIM IN HIS STOMACH! Stark hunches over from the pain when Rex rushes back into the ropes RETURNING WITH A LOW DROPKICK STRIKING STARK INTO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! REX MCALLISTER DROPS DOWN ONTO STARK AS HE HOOKS HIS LEG FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!…

Cherish: STARK ALMOST INSTANTLY THROWS HIS SHOULDER UP TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN AS REX QUICKLY RETURNS TO THE SIDE-HEADLOCK ONTO THE CHALLENGER! Rex is doing his best to try and keep the momentum swing of his opponent from getting to a fever pitch as that is where Stark is most dangerous, but Stark is definitely not going to allow himself to be ground for too much longer! He starts to bring himself back to his feet once again BUT REX TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO THE TURNBUCKLE AS HE LOOKS TO TOSS STARK INTO TO KEEP HIM ON THE DEFENSE!

Pierre McGuire: LOOK AT THIS! STARK SPINS OUT AND CHUNKS THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION INTO THE TURNBUCKLE BEFORE HE RESPONDS TO HIM WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW! Stark lifts Rex up and drapes him onto the top rope as he rolls backwards to take a moment to take in the electricity of the fans BEFORE HE RUSHES IN FOR THE CORNER KNEE STRIKE INTO HIS STOMACH! REX FALLS OUTSIDE TO THE APRON WITH STARK CATCHING HIMSELF ON THE VACANT TURNBUCKLE! STARK RUSHES IN FOR THE LARIAT ONTO REX, BUT REX BLOCKS THE LARIAT AND LEAPS IN THE AIR FOR THE ROPE-HUNG ENZIGURI! BLOCKED! REX DROPS ONTO THE APRON AS STARK RESPONDS WITH AN ENZIGURI OF HIS OWN TO SEND REX STRAIGHT DOWN ONTO THE RING APRON!

Cherish: Stark has dropped the EAW National Elite Champion with a crackling enziguri as he slides through the bottom rope to the outside while Rex McAllister lies on the ring apron! Stark grabs Rex by the head and drags him to where his top half hangs of it, walking back towards the fans in the front row, as he turns around and eyes his opponent! STARK SPRINTS IN AND BASHES REX WITH A STIFF KNEE SHOT TO FACE AS REX’S EYES MIGHT HAVE JUST GLAZED OVER FROM THAT IMPACT! Stark starts to take in the adulation of the crowd before he situates Rex back to where he was and climbs on the ring apron, looking towards straight to the fans as he starts to do his taunt for them, sprinting ahead BEFORE HE DROPS A KNEE STRAIGHT DOWN ONTO THE BACK OF HIS NECK THAT CAUSES BOTH MEN TO COLLAPSE TO THE FLOOR!

Pierre McGuire: Both men on down on the floor when Stark becomes the first to reach a vertical base, bending down to grab Rex McAllister by his head as he throws him back into the ring, climbing onto the ring apron as he holds onto the top rope! He starts to scream for Rex to stand back on his feet and you see the champion fight to get to a standing point WHEN STARK LEAPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND FLIES TOWARDS HIS OPPONENT! STARKNADO! SPRINGBOARD TORNADO DDT! STARK SPIKES THE CHAMPION ON HIS HEAD WITH THAT STUNNING MOTION RIGHT THERE! HE HOLDS DOWN HIS OPPONENT TO THE CANVAS TO HOPEFULLY GET A THREE-COUNT!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!

Cherish: REX MCALLISTER SHOOTS UP FROM THE CANVAS TO KICK OUT, HOLDING HIS NECK FROM THE ABUSE THAT HAS BEEN DELIVERED TO IT, AS STARK LOOKS TOWARDS HIM WITH A CUNNING SMILE TO HIS FACE! He notices that the knee strikes that he’s been delivering in combination with that Starknado is having an effect on the champion as he returns back to his feet! Stark grabs Rex by his neck and pulls him in THROWING KNEES STRAIGHT INTO HIS CHEST SIMILAR TO BEFORE TO FORCE HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER! Stark grabs Rex by the arm THROWING HIM CLEAR ACROSS THE RING INTO THE OPPOSITE TURNBUCKLE AS HE RU– REX EXPLODES OUT OF THE TURNBUCKLE AND STRIKES WITH A RUNNING LARIAT TO DROP HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS! HE JUST CAME OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THAT LARIAT AND HAS TURNED THIS MATCH AROUND!

Pierre McGuire: Rex McAllister has taken the high ground in his match with Stark lifting himself up to his feet WHEN REX RETURNS TO DRIVE HIS SHOULDER BEHIND HIS LEFT LEG WITH THE CHOP BLOCK! STARK DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE AND STARTS TO PICK HIMSELF UP AGAIN WHEN REX GRABS THE LEFT LEG AND LIFTS IT UP TO DO A DRAGON WHIP TO BRING HIM DOWN TO THE FLOOR WITH IT! IT SEEMS THAT REX HAS STARTED TO FOCUS ON THE LEFT LEG TO BE ABLE TO WEAKEN THOSE KNEE STRIKES OF HIS! Stark hits the canvas hard before he picks himself up holding his left leg as he turns around AND WHAM! HE’S STRUCK IN THE FACE WITH A HORRENDOUS YAKUZA KICK RIGHT IN HIS JAW! THIS COULD BE THE MOMENT THAT REX WAS LOOKING FOR AS HE DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS HIS LEFT LEG FOR THE PIN!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!

Cherish: STARK IS ABLE TO THROW HIS SHOULDER UP FOR THE KICK-OUT, BUT REX MCALLISTER HAS ALREADY STARTED TO DEBILITATION OF HIS LEFT LEG TO WEAKEN HIM! Rex McAllister goes over to the leg left and lifts it up STOMPING INTO THE BACK OF HIS KNEE TO DRIVE IT BACK DOWN INTO THE CANVAS! STARK CRADLES HIS KNEE FROM THE PUNISHMENT THAT HAS BEEN INFLICTED ONTO IT AS HE GRABS THE LEFT LEG AGAIN! HE DROPS HIMSELF DOWN AND WRAPS HIS OWN LEGS AROUND STARK’S LEFT LEG FOR THE GRAPEVINED ANKLE LOCK! HE HAS HIM IN THE ANKLE LOCK ON THAT DAMAGED LEFT LEG, HOPING TO GAIN THE SUBMISSION VICTORY TO RETAIN HIS CHAMPIONSHIP, WHILE STARK HOWLS IN AGONY AS HE STARTS TO CRAWL TOWARDS THE BOTTOM ROPE!

Pierre McGuire: Stark fights and crawls his way over towards the bottom rope, battling for the chance to escape this ankle lock submission from Rex McAllister, with Stark inches away from the bottom rope! CAN HE REACH IT TO BE ABLE TO CALL FOR THE ROPE BREAK? HE DOES! STARK REACHES THE BOTTOM ROPE AND FORCES REX TO RELEASE THE ANKLE LOCK! The referee forces Rex off of his leg as you can see Stark roll and sit up while holding his leg from the pain that he has been put through! Rex has been a pure strategist in this match, using precision on that left leg that he’s targeted, in order to weaken the knee-reliant offense that he has! Rex grabs Stark by his head and starts to hoist him up to his feet BUT STARK STRIKES WITH HARD SHOTS STRAIGHT INTO HIS ABDOMEN!

Cherish: STOMP TO THE LEFT LEG! REX STOMPS RIGHT INTO THE DAMAGED LEG OF STARK WHEN HE STUMBLES AND HOLDS ONTO TO IT IN PAIN! Rex McAllister rushes behind him to the ropes and rebounds RIGHT INTO A KNEE STRIKE INTO THE STOMACH FROM STARK WITH HIS DAMAGED LEG! Rex stands groggy as Stark holds his left leg USING THE RIGHT TO SWING HIS BOOT AROUND FOR THE SPINNING HEEL KICK! REX DROPS LIKE A TON OF BRICKS AS STARK GOES DOWN HIMSELF AND BOTH MEN ARE ON THE FLOOR AS STARK HOLDS HIS KNEE FROM USING HIS LEFT LEG! Stark and Rex McAllister both start to stand themselves up to their feet WHEN REX RUSHES IN FOR THE RUNNING LARIAT! STARK BLOCKS IT AND STRIKES WITH A FEW SLAPS BEFORE DROPPING REX WITH A HEAVY ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW! Rex almost collapses from the shot as Stark walks back to the turnbuckle RUSHING BACK TO REX WITH A SHOTGUN DROPKICK STRAIGHT TO THIS CHEST!

Pierre McGuire: BAM! REX MCALLISTER SLAMS RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE POST AS HE COLLAPSES TO DOWN TO THE CANVAS WHILE LYING ON THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE! Stark stands up in the center of the ring and starts to feel the vibration of the crowd as he stomps in the ring RUSHING TO THE TURNBUCKLE BEFORE RETURNING TO REX WITH A HESITATION DROPKICK! REX ROLLS OUT OF THE CORNER HOLDING HIS CHEST AS STARK ROLLS TOWARDS THE RING APRON TO STAND BACK TO HIS FEET! Stark grabs the top rope and leaps up in the air DROPPING DOWN WITH THE SPRINGBOARD ELBOW DROP ON THE HEART OF REX MCALLISTER! STARK HOOKS REX MCALLISTER BY THE LEG AND HOPES TO PUT HIM DOWN FOR THE COUNT!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Cherish: SHOULDER UP BY THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION! REX MCALLISTER HAS KICKED OUT OF THE PIN AND STARK CRADLES HIS LEFT LEG FROM THE DAMAGE IT HAS SUSTAINED! He starts to move it around to get the blood flowing into it as he stands up to his feet to try and walks near the ropes HOLDING HIS FIST IN THE AIR AND HE LOOKS TO STRIKE HIM WITH THE RAINBOW YAWNS! Rex McAllister stands on his feet and turns around RIGHT WHEN STARK LEAPS AND FIRES WITH THE SUPERMAN PUNCH! REX CATCHES STARK ON HIS SHOULDERS AS HE HOPES TO PUT HIM OUT WITH THE FIREMAN’S CARRY DRIVER! KNEE TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! ANOTHER KNEE! A THIRD KNEE STRIKE LANDS BEFORE HE DROPS BACK BEHIND AS HE STUMBLES BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER! Rex starts to turn around WHEN STARK RUSHES IN FOR THE EGO DEATH!

Cherish: NO! STARK KICKS OUT OF THE PIN AS REX MCALLISTER HAS BEEN LEFT STUNNED! ABSOLUTE DISBELIEF WASHED OVER THE FACE OF REX AS HE BELIEVED THAT HE HAD PUT AWAY HIS CHALLENGER RIGHT HERE!

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

Cherish: THIS IS JUST OUTRAGEOUS! STARK WAS ABLE TO GET HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE TO BE ABLE TO FORCE THE REFEREE TO CALL THE COUNT OFF! Rex McAllister is furious about this as he starts to get heated with the referee about it, but he starts to calm himself down. He grabs Stark by his head as he walks over to the turnbuckle corner CLIMBING ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE WITH HIS HEAD HOOKED IN! IS HE GOING TO DO IT? IS HE GOING TO DO A REX EFFECT FROM THE TOP ROPE?

Pierre McGuire: BAM! STARK STRIKES WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE TO THE FACE OF REX MCALLISTER AS HE SITS ON THE TOP ROPE WITH A GROGGY LOOK ON HIS FACE!

SUPER STARK SPECIAL! THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS CAPS OFF THE SUPER STARK SPECIAL AS HE HOOKS HIS LEG FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!

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

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Shock Me” by Baroness plays in the background as Stark rises up to his feet as the emotion is put on display of his face as the referee hands him the EAW National Elite Championship.)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… AND NNNNNEEEEEEEEWWWWWW EAW NAAATTTTTTIIIIIIOOOONNNNAAAALLLL EEEELLLLIIIITTTTEEEEE CHAMPION… STTAAARRRRKKKKK!!!

Pierre McGuire: STARK HAS DONE IT! HE HAS DONE IT! AFTER YEARS OF TRYING TO CLAIM THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP, HE’S FINALLY DONE IT ON THE BIGGEST PAIN FOR PRIDE STAGE IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF EAW! Stark can finally begin the chapter of being a National Elite Champion here tonight at Pain for Pride X!

Cherish: An impressive match that was able to leave me in awe, as Rex McAllister targeted the left leg of Stark to be able to try and take out his knee strikes, but Stark was able to be versatile enough to come out with his Super Stark Special to give him the victory and the National Elite Championship! Congratulations to him and to Rex McAllister for a phenomenal showing here tonight!

(An angry Rex McAllister rips the National Elite Championship from Stark’s grasp as both men get back up to their feet)

Pierre: Uh oh, hold on! We may not be done here if Rex has anything to say about it!

(An exhausted Stark stares down with Rex for several seconds as a visibly upset Rex turns his attention to the National Elite Championship, looking at it)

Cherish: Rex did absolutely everything in his power to keep that Championship around his waist tonight, but in the end, it wasn’t meant to be. He told Stark and the rest of the World he would never let it go, and I think the reality of it is hitting him, and hitting hard!

(Rex reluctantly throws the Championship over Stark’s shoulder and takes his leave, removing his wrist tape as Stark looks on)

Pierre: A surprising showing of respect from Rex after all he said about that man! I think both of these competitors have a newfound respect for one another after that contest! What a great way to start Pain For Pride!

(Stark stands on his feet as he starts to limp on his left leg to make his way to the turnbuckle, jumping up onto the turnbuckle, raising the EAW National Elite Championship high in the air in celebration to take in the moment.)

(The camera transitions backstage to Damien Murrow’s Office, where he’s joined by a confused CM Banks and Devan Dubian)

Devan: What the Hell is this, Murrow? Where is HBB?

(Murrow lets out a sigh)

Murrow: I’m afraid I’m going to have to inform the two of you that the Heart Break Boy… Will not be here tonight.

Banks: You really expect me to believe the Heart Break Boy just let you tell him he can’t wrestle tonight?

Murrow: He had no say in it whatsoever. His body is in absolutely no condition to compete, so we’ve made certain he will not be here. After the assaulted he endured at the hands of Jaywalker and Ares last week, I have officially pulled him from the match.

Banks: And what the Hell are we supposed to do?

(Murrow shrugs before Devan grabs him by his jacket)

Devan: You just don’t give a damn, do you? Since this means nothing to you, after all! You can’t just take him out of the match if he wants to compete!

Murrow: I can, and I have. He’s not here, and he won’t be either. The Heart Break Boy, as far as either of you are concerned, is gone indefinitely. If you want, you can find a partner to replace hm.

Banks: Where do you expect us to find somebody to replace him this late in the game? Are you an idiot?

Devan: I don’t care.

Banks: What?

Devan: I don’t care if we find a partner. I don’t care if it’s just the two of us out there against all of them. We’re gonna win this, or I’ll die trying. I’ve been waiting a year and a half to get redemption on Ares, and I’m gonna make Jay pay for what he did to my Hall of Fame Championship, so I don’t give a damn! I’m going out there whether we have a partner or not!

(Devan Dubian storms off as CM Banks looks on. Banks turns his attention to Murrow)

Banks: You’re kind of a shitty GM, you know that? He’s right. We’re not done. I’ll find somebody.

(Banks walks off as Damien Murrow sighs once more, going back to his desk as the camera transitions back to the stage at MetLife Stadium)

(The camera focuses back on the center of the ring where Erica Ford stands wearing a sleeveless satin emerald-colored dress holding a microphone.)

Erica Ford: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest at Pain for Pride X is the 24/7 Contract Battle Royal!

(The crowd lets off a massive ovation forcing Erica to wait until they finish cheering. Once the stadium calms down, Erica continues to speak.)

Erica Ford: The bell will sound once all competitors have entered and will continue until there is only one Elitist remains. There is no time limit. There are no pinfalls, submissions or disqualifications. The only way a competitor is eliminated by being thrown over the top rope and to the arena floor. When the winner is decided, they will receive the 24/7 Contract: a contract that can be used at any time by the holder for an immediate championship opportunity within one calendar year of winning it. So…. are you ready?

(The MetLife Stadium crowd rises to its feet as they cheer wildly.)

Erica: WITHOUT WAITING ANY LONGER, HERE THEY ARE, THE PARTICIPANTS…

(Plays as pyro goes off near the entrance ramp.)

Stew-O: A quick survey around on a winner, guys? We’ll start with you, WWEFan….

WWEFan: I’m gonna go with Sheridan Muller, she’s on a roll of late and despite any size disadvantage she may have she may be the best wrestler in this match.

Stew-O: Stan?

Starr Stan: Anybody but Haruna or Azumi…PLEASE.

WWEFan: Will you be serious? Pierre, prediction?

Pierre: I like Darkane here to pick up the win, a gut feeling if you will.

(The camera pans over the stage once more as the first entrant makes his way down the ramp followed by the others)

HARUNA SAKAZAKI!

JOHNNY NOVA!

(Erica is motioned quickly towards a group of officials, one of them getting word via headset about something.)

WWEFan: What’s going on?

Starr Stan: Not sure. There seems to be a hold up in the back….

Pierre: We’re getting word that there is a commotion backstage, we’re rushing to get a camera back there now!

(The camera pans over the ring full of competitors waiting for the match to begin. Seconds later, the picture moves to the backstage area. Jon McAdams and Mike Showman are assaulting ONI, slamming his head against a steel beam, busting him open and leaving him unconscious before backstage agents rush them away.)

Starr Stan: Well there’s one soldier who ain’t gonna make it home!

Stew-O: It was a cowardly assault but an effective one! Our thirty-four-elitist battle royal is down to thirty-three. Oni is being tended to and it’s not looking too good for him competing tonight I must say.

WWEFan: These two call themselves the People with Class and frankly this doesn’t display much class.

Starr Stan: Well it is smart, though. Why go it alone if you are already partners who can be an effective pairing against the rest of the field.

(Jon McAdams and Mike Showman make their way down to the ring to a chorus of boos, joining the already full ring of people as Erica raises the microphone to speak.)

Erica: Ladies and Gentlemen, it appears that ONI has been injured and will not be able to compete.

(The boos get even louder before the lead official, after conferring with the other referees, rings the bell)

DING DING DING!!!

WWEFan: AND HERE…. WE GO! The most massive battle royal in Pain for Pride’s history is underway with representatives from all four brands slugging it out. Scott Diamond…he’s already got Sheridan Muller in his sights as he goes charging in with a running big boot! Sheridan moves out of the way and Diamond crotches himself in the ropes….AND SHERIDAN KNOCKS HIM OUT OF THE RING WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE RIGHT TO THE FACE!

Starr Stan: WHAT!? WHAT!?

Pierre: I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I HAVE JUST SEEN! SHERIDAN MULLER JUST ELMINATED ONE OF THE MOST DECORATED PARTICIPANTS IN THIS MATCH! A FORMER WORLD CHAMPION!

Erica Ford: Scott Diamond is ELIMINATED!

 

(The fans cheer insanely loud as Diamond stands on his feet, eyes wide in absolute shock before snapping into a fit of rage, trying to get back into the ring, pushing and shoving referees as he is escorted away.)

 

Scott Diamond: I WASN’T READY! I WASN’T READY! DAMN IT! GET OUT OF MY WAY YOU DICKHEADS!

 

Stew-O: I have never seen anything quite like this!

 

(The replay on a split-screen shows Diamond looking to score with a big boot, missing and being eliminated.)

 

WWEFan: We can’t mourn forever though as the action begins to pick up inside the ring! Kaise Boetius and Johnny Nova trading punches! Shaker Jones and Harvey Yorke are laying into each other on one side. Saiko Hotaru, the smallest competitor in the match by quite a bit, is trying to fend off the attack of La Diva! La Diva has her on the ropes, trying to push her over, but Hotaru smashes a foot right to La Diva’s nose!

Pierre: Showman and McAdams continue their rampage, they immediately have Chris Bradshaw up on the turnbuckle, struggling to get him out! Bradshaw fighting for his life but he’s up, over and out to the floor, he’s done!

Erica Ford: Chris Bradshaw is Eliminated.

 

Stew-O: I know that neither of us picked him, but we all assumed Scott Diamond was going to go much further in this contest than he did and many considered him a favorite to win this match. Now that he’s out, who do you keep an eye on here?

Starr Stan: Sheridan obviously! She’s already taken one of the big dogs out and you notice that nobody has anything in mind for her. All the participants are keeping their distance and Sher is just standing there, waiting for someone to dare take the fight her and Shaker Jones does…. he whiffs on a LARIAT……GERMAN SUPLEX!

WWEFan: SHERPLEX CITY! GERMAN EFFICENCY ON FULL DISPLAY IN THE EARLY GOING!

Pierre: Meanwhile over there in the far corner you see Lethal Consequences laying into Mike Showman with some hard chops to the chest but Jon Adams is there to rake the eyes and ward him off. The People with Class working collectively here in the early going.

Stew-O: Over there in the corner! Haruna and Azumi have someone going out over the top rope…. it’s Ryan Lecavlier! She’s been eliminated by the Power Couple from Empire!

Erica Ford: Ryan Lecavlier has been eliminated!

(Ryan slaps her hands down on the apron in frustration as Haruna and Azumi share a hug in the ring.)

Starr Stan: I don’t know if I can take these two for a whole battle royal.

Pierre: But you’re used to it! You see them all the time on Empire.

Starr Stan: Wrestling again is sounding better by the day….

WWEFan: Focus here, guys! We’ve got Johnny Nova and Kaise Boetius still battling in the center of the ring! Kaise tries a high kick but Nova catches the leg, pulls him in and delivers a devastating spinning spinebuster! Haruna and Azumi have picked out their next target as they decide to double team another Empire elitist, the young Kimi Hendrix!

Pierre: Anthony Leonhart is working over Sir Killian Charlemagne in the corner with a vicious choke hold…. Killian manages to get a thumb to the eye and then scores a vicious European uppercut! Prince of Phenomenal showing a little fire here in this match suddenly attacking everything in sight! Running high knee to Mike Showman! A spinning back fist to Sheridan, stunning the German! Then a missed clothesline by Harvey Yorke…PELE KICK! THE PHENOMINAL PRINCE KICKING SOME MAJOR LEAGUE ASS RIGHT NOW!

Stew-O: WATCH OUT WATCHOUT! KAISE BOETIUS FROM BEHIND WITH A RUNNING KICK RIGHT TO THE BACK, STUNNING POP AS HE WAS TRYING TO GET UP FROM THAT PELE KICK…KAISE GRABS POP BY THE NECK AND NOW HE’S GONE!

Erica Ford: The Prince of Phenomenal has been eliminated!

Pierre: Wow. That is two former Answers World Champions eliminated now!

WWEFan: And only one remains now as Lethal Consequences is in bad shape, trying to get out of the grips of Jon McAdams and Mike Showman, they have him teetering on the verge of elimination here on the ropes, but Theron Nikolas, a man we hadn’t seen much of tonight, comes in and pulls at Mike Showman’s EYES from behind with fingers!

Starr Stan: AND LOOK AT THIS…La Diva is challenging Sheridan Muller to battle! I don’t think this is smart…

Pierre: I’m not sure anyone would mistake La Diva for a MENSA member, but she’s in the face of Sheridan who is just standing there stoically until La Diva tries an elbow strike…Sheridan counters with an elbow strike of her own to that same elbow! La Diva recoils in pain but Sher doesn’t relent, kick to the midsection…. Sheridan picks her up…. She’s looking towards Haruna, Azumi and Kimi Hendrix, who the married couple are trying to eliminate…. SHERIDAN THROWS LA DIVA TOWARDS THE THREE OF THEM FROM A POWER BOMB POSITION! DIVA CRASHES INTO KIMI AND BOTH TUMBLE OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE ARENA FLOOR!

Starr Stan: WOW.

Stew-O: I have seen it….and I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE IT!

Erica Ford: Both La Diva and Kimi Hendrix have been ELMINATED!

WWEFan: That’s definitely going in the highlight montage! We’re down to 28 people now as-

Starr Stan: 27, Fan. ONI is not here now and from the way the People with Class left him bloodied it doesn’t look like we’re going to be seeing him tonight.

Pierre: The action fast and furious though as Cody Marshall has both Kaise Boetius and Carson Ramsay, another great champion involved in this match, in a choke hold, one hand for each arm…Dakane and Carson look at each other…. DOUBLE KICK TO THE GROIN…DOUBLE DDT! They get up and celebrate a little bit, the crowd roaring in approval but they are attacked from behind! McAdams and Showman at it again as Showman knocks over Kaise and McAdams dumps Ramsay up over and out! CARSON RAMSAY IS OUT!

Erica Ford: Carson Ramsay is eliminated!

WWEFan: This is astonishing. We’ve already seen some highly decorated, well-respected veterans like Carson Ramsay, POP! This field is wide open right now and anyone can come up and take it!

Starr Stan: What about Lethal Consequences? Former World Champion on multiple occasions, back in the fray for his chance to return to previous glory! He’s not backing down from a fight! And Cody Marshall is trying to eliminate Darkane now, Darkane’s arms wrapped around the ropes, his body in an extremely dangerous position!

(Suddenly “She Looks Good” (Angry Kids Remix) By Jim Johnson plays and the picture switches to just behind an emerging figure walking to the entrance way with long legs taking a confident, model-like stride. Amy-Jayne emerges onto the stage holding a microphone to a chorus of boos as the action in the ring for the most part stops, everyone turning to see what’s going on. Anthony Leonhart smiles and points towards the stage.)

Starr Stan: We are in the presence of the IT Girl from Baton Rouge, the lovely and talented Amy-Jayne!

WWEFan: For those of you not familiar, she’s a competitor on Empire. Very talented and with a great upside but why is she out here in the middle of this battle royal!?

Amy-Jayne: Good evening, little people! It’s a pleasure to be here in America’s Used Enema, East Rutherford, New Jersey!

(The crowd boos a bit as the camera pans over the confused expressions of the battle royal participants, Haruna and Azumi sharing a word with each other.)

Haruna: She…. work here?

Azumi: (Shrugs)

Amy-Jayne: Now, I know you all see the wonderful muscles of my lovely beau and tag team partner, Anthony Leonhart in the ring!

(Anthony blows a kiss to Amy as the crowd continues to boo heavily.)

Amy-Jayne: I saw what happened to that ONI guy. It’s unfortunate. Howevah, since he is unable to compete, I guess I can fill his spot. Maybe I can show Sheridan there how to pick out better clothing. Basic black, it’s not really you, shug. Oh! It’s the married couple……and I’m not talking about the People with Class.

(The crowd laughs a bit as McAdams scoffs a bit, Showman much more furious, holds the ropes demanding for her to come into the ring.)

Amy-Jayne: Relax, my baby…. I’m talking about Haruna and Azumi. Don’t you already have a floating contract thing amajigger, Azumi? And Haruna, how many times are we going to see you get your ass beat in a title match, huh? I mean…. I see a lot of old guys like Lethal Consequences, nobodies like Kaise , guys who can’t hold a candle to my partner in sexy, Anthony……what?!

(The crowd cheers as several members of security come to the stage, surrounding Amy-Jayne.)

Amy-Jayne: WHAT IS THIS ABOUT!? CAN’T YALL SEE IM TALKING!?

Officer: Commissioner HRDO sent a message and requested that you be removed not only from the stage, but from the building. Your presence is considered an unnecessary disruption and you are not in this match. Please…this way.

(A furious Anthony Leonhart is screaming at the top of his lungs for them to let Amy go, but she is escorted from the stage area, microphone still in hand.)

Amy-Jayne: YOU CAN’T DO THIS TO THE IT GIRL! LET ME BACK OUT THERE!

WWEFan: Well that was ……unique.

Stew-O: Looks like she was trying to get involved in the Battle Royal but our Chairman Said no.

(Anthony turns around, still seething, pointing to random Elitists in the ring, shouting at them before shoving Sheridan and then Cody Marshall, Marshall responds with an uppercut and the resulting melee restarts the battle royal)

Pierre: After that self-advertisement from Amy-Jayne, we are back to the action in the ring as Sheridan, Lethal Consequences, Cody Marshall and others are all ganging up on Anthony Leonhart in the corner! His girlfriend’s mouth wrote checks that his ass will have to cash! But he’s holding his own! Headbutt sends Sheridan flying! A hard right hand takes down Cody Marshall! Darkane is taken down with a right elbow shot to the face! Haruna and Azumi of all people come at him and try to attack him and they get him in position for a vertical suplex….IT DOESN’T WORK, THEY GO UP AND DOWN AS ANTHONY SHOWS OFF HIS STRENGTH WITH A DOUBLE VERTICAL SUPLEX!

Starr Stan: That kid is a Hoss. He’s having his way……WAIT A SECOND!

WWEFan: DARKANE FROM BEHIND WITH A STEEL CHAIR RIGHT TO THE BACK! THAT SENT HIM RIGHT TO HIS KNEES! HOW DID HE GET THAT IN THERE!

Pierre: He slid out of the ring while everyone was distracted by Amy-Jayne a few moments ago and now he’s wearing out the back of Anthony Leonhart with vicious chair shots…. El Ironico tries to intervene and gets taken out with a chair shot straight to the head! MY GOD! Theron Nikolas feasting on the scraps, tossing a lifeless man over the top rope and to the floor!

Erica Ford: El Ironico has been eliminated!

Stew-O: Darkane laying waste to anything within chair’s length! A strike to the back of Kaise Boetius! A shot to the head of Marco Fedor……and….it appears that some of his “followers” are jumping over the barricade and pulling the White Wolf to safety on the outside! Darkane swinging wildly barely misses taking off the head of Jacob Moore, who wisely slides out to the floor as well!

Starr Stan: Looks like we have a chairman in case HRDO gets his clock cleaned by Eclipse.

WWEFan: Really, man?

Pierre: What is Saiko Hotaru doing? She’s sliding out of the ring and digging underneath the ring apron…. she’s pulling out a pair of wooden tonfa? What on earth!?

Starr Stan: WHY DOES EVERY ASIAN GIRL ON EMPIRE HAVE TO BE A NUTJOB OR LIKE TO USE WEAPONS!? CAN’T PEOPLE JUST WRESTLE ANYMORE!?

Pierre: Darkane has his back turned, looking for people to swing at with his chair but nothing but a sea of laid out Elitists is greeting him! He turns around and Hotaru strikes him with a quick pair of body blows with her tonfa, taking him down! Anthony tries to do something and he gets a shot right to the GROIN!

WWEFan: Amy-Jayne is not going to be pleased with that!

Stew-O: Leonhart, for obvious reasons, is on the ground and Saiko is standing tall in the ring, but JON MCADAMS AND MIKE SHOWMAN AGAIN WITH A DOUBLETEAM! THIS TIME A PAIR OF AXEHANDLE BLOWS FROM BEHIND! SHE’S BARELY HALF YOUR SIZE, GUYS! COME ON! AND THE TWO OF THEM TEAM UP TO TOSS HOTARU OUT!

Erica Ford: Saiko Hotaru has been eliminated.

Starr Stan: Another Empire representative gone….

WWEFan: 24 people remain here in this 24/7….

(“Breakdown” by Lady of Rage plays as La Diva returns to the stage with her signature glowing shoes, dancing on the stage before taking a huge sprint and sliding about halfway down the stage as the crowd cheers her on.)

WWEFan: Uhh?

Pierre: It’s time to FEEL LA GLOW apparently as La Diva returns to this match that she’s already eliminated from! What is she doing!? She’s going down and grabbing a ladder from underneath the ring. This is the second time in the match that we have had the entire ring stop and stare at someone from Empire. Stan, what on earth goes on over there?

Stew-O: I thought I saw weird every week…..

(La Diva sets up “La Ladder” in the ring, climbing it as everyone else looks around in confusion.)

Megan Raine: WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!?

La Diva: Where’s the briefcase!? Isn’t this Cash in the Vault Contract ladder match at Pain for Pride PPV 10!?

Megan Raine: No….this is the same match that you got eliminated from.

La Diva: Oh……

Pierre: Wait a second..DARKANE IS TIPPING THE LADDER OVER! LA DIVA CRASHES TO THE ARENA FLOOR FROM NEAR THE TOP OF THE LADDER! WHAT THE HELL!?

WWEFan: Well she did already get eliminated. She had no business in the ring.

Stew-O: Wait! Anthony Leonhart picks up the ladder, left behind by La Diva and is using it as a weapon, hammering people left and right with it. Mike Showman, Shaker Jones! Even takes a swing at Ryan Savage! He’s crushing everyone! He swings at Darkane and misses…and Darkane takes him down with a vicious chop block and Anthony’s own head bounces off of one of the rungs! MY GOD!

Pierre: Meanwhile, Haruna and Azumi are working together again, this time to throw out Arete Silverlance! Both of her feet touch the floor and she lands standing up, but the refs are telling her she’s outta here!

Erica Ford: Arete Silverlance has been eliminated!

Pierre: The field continues to whittle down here in Metlife Stadium as Marco Fedor is back in the ring and immediately gets taken down with a Superman punch from Ryan Savage! The former champion is asserting himself in this match, trying to work his way back into title contention…..SPEAR TAKES DOWN TIG KELLY! Savage is running wild here but Darkane is up and takes him down with a DDT RIGHT ONTO THAT SAME STEEL CHAIR HE WAS USING EARLIER!

Stew-O: And now Kaise Boetius, Lethal Consequences and Johnny Nova are all triple teaming Savage trying to take him out, but Theron Nikolas and Anthony Leonhart join in the battle and now we have a six man melee in the middle of the ring!

WWEFan: Sheridan Muller is in trouble on the ropes via Cody Marshall, who is trying to throw her out….Sherridan is so close to elimination but she manages to break free, CODY MARSHALL GOES OVER THE TOP AND HE’S ON THE APRON! HE’S HANGING ON TO THE ROPES TRYING TO KEEP HIMSELF IN BUT SHERIDAN IS ON THE ATTACK, MARSHALL USES ONE HAND TO PUSH THE MUCH SMALLER MULLER AWAY EFFORTLESSLY AND SCRAMBLES BACK INTO THE RING!

Starr Stan: Azumi and Haruna from behind, attacking Sheridan, trying to beat her up some more! But Megan Raine comes forward to even the odds….THERON NIKOLAS COMES IN FROM BEHIND AND USHERS HER OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE FLOOR!

Erica Ford: Megan Raine is Eliminated!

Stew-O: Another elimination for Nikolas, who has been picking off people and picking his spots, fighting a very intelligent battle royal so far…..Oh My God.

WWEFan: NO WAY…NO DAMN WAY!

(An obviously injured but smiling ONI staggers to the stage, a smile on his face as he makes his way to the ring, a still bloody bandage over his head and a chain wrapped around his arm.)

Pierre: One of the most dangerous people in EAW is walking down to the ring and Jon McAdams and Mike Showman are prepared for battle! They tried to take this man out and now they’re going to have to pay the piper! Oni slides into the ring as Showman charges forward….ONI IMMEDIATELY CLOTHESLINES HIM WITH THE STEEL CHAIN! MCADAMS COMES IN FOR THE SUPER KICK AND MISSES, ONI TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A HEADBUTT!

(The contact sends McAdams down and the camera zooms in on Oni’s bleeding face as blood starts to trickle down his forehead, the smile still there.)

Starr Stan: And now ONI turning his attention to the other participants in the match….SHAKER JOKES CLOTHESLINED OUT AND TO THE FLOOR, RIGHT AT THE FEET OF FEDOR, WHO IS STILL RECOVERING ON THE OUTSIDE!

Erica Ford: Shaker Jones has been eliminiated!

WWEFan: He’s not done, boys! He takes out Harvey Yorke with a sensational Busaiku running knee strike! He’s gone as well!

Erica Ford: Harvey Yorke is eliminated!

Pierre: The rampage of this monster, this Atrocity continues as Sheridan tries to assert herself and she gets taken down with a hiptoss. ONI turns around into a charging Sir Kilian Charlemagne…ONI BACKBODY DROPS HIM OUT TO THE ARENA FLOOR! OH MY GOD!

Erica Ford: Sir Killian Charlemagne has been eliminated!

Stew-O: Tig Kelly and Khamsin are trying to intervene now and stomp away at this house of fire now, they manage to get the chain off of him and Kelly takes him down with a snap suplex…but ONI SITS RIGHT UP AND THE TWO OF THEM FREEZE IN THEIR TRACKS! ONI is getting back up but Showman is now attacking him from behind! Showman in a frenzy tries to send him over and does, but ONI lands on the apron!

Starr Stan: And Tig and Khamsin try to take HIM OUT! Sending him over the ropes as Jon McAdams comes over to try to make the save! Showman is on his feet on the apron, as is ONI! Showman tries a super kick but ONI, even with the limited space, avoids it. ONI PUTS SHOWMAN ON HIS SHOULDERS…….DEATH VALLEY DRIVER ON THE APRON! OH MY GOD! SHOWMAN IS OUT AS HE FALLS THE FLOOR A CRUMPLED HEAP!

Erica Ford: Mike Showman has been eliminated!

WWEFan: Erica Ford getting busier with ONI here in this match! He has arrived and made a huge impact! He’s got to get back into the ring and he does, the crowd cheering on this monster of a human being! I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like what we’ve seen here in this battle royal!

Stew-O: That elimination got us down to 19 participants as the ring is starting to get a lot less full. We have heavy favorites, dark horses and long shots. Former champions and rookies! Marco Fedor goes straight after ONI, these two have had their battles in the past as members of the Sanatorium and Wolvesden, the fight continuing here! Hard rights and lefts from both men, slugging it out in the center of the ring. FEDOR getting the better of the exchange, rocking a seemingly exhausted ONI! BUT JUST AS FEDOR GAINS THE ADVANTAGE, THERON SWOOPS IN AND THROWS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!

Pierre: He grabs that top rope, catching himself on the apron! Incredible display of agility and improvisation…..but lookout….TIG KELLY WITH A SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK SENDS HIM FLYING AMONGST HIS FOLLOWERS, BOTH FEET TOUCHING THE FLOOR!

Erica Ford: Marco Fedor has been Eliminated!

Stew-O: Tig Kelly gets a nice elimination of the night with an assist from Theron Nikolas! The action continues in the ring as Cody Marshall and Anthony Leonhart hook up in the ring, doing battle like two giant battling bulls! Leonhart is getting the better of it and is trying to eliminate him but Cody responds with a thumb to the eye, managing to stay alive for now!

WWEFan: This has been some crazy fight and we’re still not even halfway through! Eighteen of our starting thirty four remain and the action is still just as intense. Khamsin and Jacob Moore are doubleteaming Ryan Savage though, trying to get him over the ropes….double team clothesline sends him reeling but he’s still alive…They go for another and this time Savage ducks underneath, Savage from behind slips between the two, picking up a leg of each man and dumping them both over and out to the floor! An incredible show of strength by Savage!

Erica Ford: Both Khamsin and Jacob Moore are Eliminated!

Starr Stan: Great display of strength by SAVAGE! Kaise Boëtius FROM BEHIND, CLOTHELINES SAVAGE OUT AND HE’S ELMINATED AS WELL, TO THE DISBELIEF OF THE CROWD!

(Ryan Savage has to be restrained as he tries to rush back into the ring after Kaise who waves goodbye with a smirk.)

Erica Ford: Ryan Savage has been eliminated!

Pierre: And isn’t that a shocker, gentlemen? The man returning to Dynasty to try and seize an opportunity at greatness denied. Meanwhile, Haruna and Azumi have now singled out Sheridan Muller for assault, clubbing her with elbows and knees in a corner as Sheridan tries to cover up! They have been Harassing that woman for a while!

WWEFan: Tig Kelly is attacking Mark Michaels in the corner trying to lift him out…DARKANE COMES CHARGING OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A RUNNING KNEE THAT DESTROYS TIG AND SENDS MICHAELS OUT!

Erica Ford: Mark Michaels has been eliminated!

Starr Stan: Look at this! Lethal Consequences and Johnny Nova working as a unit, attacking Anthony Leonhart and Tig Kelly! Theodore Hilfiger comes into the fray to help Eliminate Tig Kelly…they dump him out to the apron but he survives. BUT NOT FOR LONG! A SUPER KICK FROM KAISE BOETIUS SENDS THE FORMER NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION CRASHING TO THE ARENA FLOOR!

Erica Ford: Tig Kelly is eliminated!

Stew-O: We are getting down to some real serious business, boys! Just the lucky thirteen left! Sheridan is still here! Theron Nikolas, Cody Marshall….and look at this! Lethal Consequences and Johhny Nova are swarming over Theodore Hilfiger! The two of them work together and get him into the ropes!

Starr Stan: Look at this though, Azumi and Haruna have Sheridan in a similar situation! Darkane makes the save there, taking down Haruna with a leg sweep! That enables Sheridan enough to get free, driving her boot right into Azumi’s chest! Darkane being a good Samaritan and all but he better hope that move doesn’t come back to haunt him!

WWEFan: Meanwhile, Cody Marshall and Anthony Leonhart are still locked into a wild battle. Leonhart and him tie up but then break up. Anthony’s gesturing to his chin? Does he want Marshall to attack? He does…..MARSHALL WITH A FOREARM SHOT! I swear I saw a tooth fly out of Anthony’s mouth! But he is unfazed and responds with a vicious strike of his own! And now Marshall! And Anthony! And Marshall! AND ANTHONY! MARSHALL! ANTHONY! MARSHALL! ANTHONY! MARSHALL! ANTHONY! MARSHALL!

(The crowd cheers as the two men continue to hammer away at each other, both landing forearms to the face in succession, neither man falling down.)

Pierre: What’s a battle royal without some strong style action going on! The two of them are exchanging blows, toe to toe, face to face! Neither man backing down! MARSHALL LANDS A PAIR OF THEM! HE’S DARING MARSHALL TO RESPOND! MARSHALL DOES RESPOND WITH A VICIOUS FOREARM OF HIS OWN! AND THEN A SLAP TO THE FACE! ANTHONY LANDS ANOTHER SHOT RIGHT TO THE FACE….CODY GOES FOR ONE BUT ANTHONY BLOCKS IT….SLAP TO THE FACE….BIG TIME LARIAT THAT SENDS MARSHALL DOWN TO THE CANVAS!

Stew-O: Uh-oh, watch out! Kaise Boetius and Jon McAdams grab Anthony by the tights and are trying to force him over the top rope and out! Theodore Hilfiger comes to help out and together all of them take out Anthony Leonhart! He’s been eliminated!

Erica Ford: Anthony Leonhart has been eliminated!

WWEFan: ONI WITH ANOTHER KNEE STRIKE SENDS HILFIGER OUT AS MCADAMS AND KAISE GET OUT OF THE WAY! ANOTHER ELIMINATION!

Erica Ford: Theodore Hilfiger is elmimnated!

Pierre: Look here now, Cody Marshall has Kaise Boetius in a precarious position in one corner…..but he manages evade the attack and now it’s Kaise landing a lot of vicious, shoot kicks right to the chest and midsection of Marshall! He’s taking a beating right now! Theron tries to attack from behind but Lethal takes him down with a brilliant jumping roundhouse kick right to the chest! Darkane from behind though on the attack as Cody pulls him in by the arms, holding his ribs exposed as Darkane rams that damn steel chair of his right into the abdomen of Darkane!

WWEFan: Sheridan locks in a sleeper hold on the former World Champion Lethal Consequences, jumping on his back in attempt to put him to sleep! Lethal is struggling, he’s losing breath and bloodflow and he’s taking a knee! He could be on his way out!

Starr Stan: I don’t like this strategy though! Sheridan doesn’t have the power to just pick up Lethal Consequences and drag him to the elimination if-

Pierre: I’m not going to doubt that young lady’s ability after watching her lift another human being and throw her like a shotput into another human being. I’m not putting anything past her.

Stew-O: Doesn’t look like we’re going to have to worry about it though because Lethal Consequences manages to drive her back into the corner breaking the hold. Sheridan, fatigued and reeling, walks right into an Acid Reign diamond cutter! What a maneuver!

WWEFan: Johnny Nova is getting hit in the corner with some shoot kicks from Darkane and he gets hit with a vicious one that sends him doubling over, Darkane picks him up….He’s going for a tombstone!? NO! Nova overpowers him and takes him over into a tombstone position! Darkane is trying to escape but Nova transitions into a fireman’s Carry! Benadryller! And now Darkane is in trouble…..he’s fallen to the canvas but is picked up by Haruna and Azumi, two women trying to set themselves up as winners! Azumi lands a vicious kick right to Darkane’s face! Haruna follows up with palm thrusts to the body! Cody Marshall trying to eliminate Oni as Haruna and Azumi prepare to try to take out Darkane……Cody gets sent reeling into Haruna who bumps into Azumi, taking her down!

Starr-Stan: Azumi gets up and turns her attention to Haruna, giving her spouse a shove as she gets up?

Azumi: OI! WATCH WHERE YOU’RE GOING!

Haruna: Tranquilo, Azumi. I got bumped into by-

(Azumi pushes her again as the crowd stars to cheer a bit.)

Azumi: You watch yourself….I don’t care who bumped into you. You don’t TOUCH me when we’re in a wrestling ring!

(Haruna, getting a bit frustrated pushes back as the two square off face to face.)

Pierre: This is a bit surreal! Two women who have recently married square off in the ring, staring each other down, each one poised for combat…SHERIDAN FROM BEHIND ON HARUNA…REVERSE EXPLODER SUPLEX! AZUMI RUSHES IN…..EXPLODER SUPLEX RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES FOR AZUMI! Lethal Consequences behind Sheridan as she gets up to her feet….he misses on the Acid Reign this time as Sheridan makes him pay….GERMAN SUPLEX! Lethal Consequences trying to scramble to get to his feet but gets cut off by Theron ad gets thrown out! Lethal holds onto the ropes….but a SHOULDER BLOCK BY KAISE BOETIUS SENDS OUT THE FORMER WORLD CHAMP!

Erica Ford: Lethal Consequences has been eliminated!

WWEFan: We’re down to 10, guys! Who is going to walk away with the contract and an opportunity of a lifetime!? Cody Marshall just made Kaise Boetius do a 360 flip with a running big boot! He takes down Sheridan with the same! And another one to ONI THAT SENDS HIM OVER THE ROPES! ONI IS ON THE VERGE OF ELIMINATION BUT EVERYONE IS BEING TAKEN DOWN WITH RUNNING BIG BOOTS! SHERIDAN! AZUMI! JOHNNY! MCADAMS! DARKANE!

Starr Stan: Look at this though, ONI manages to skin the cat and pull himself back into the ring, Marshall looking for a discus clothesline…ONI ducks under it….ONI rises….AND SLAPS THE TASTE RIGHT OUT OF MARSHALL’S MOUTH!

Stew-O: I’m not sure that’s the wisest decision ONI has made as Cody is trying to track him down….but look at this! DARKANE! KAISE BOETIUS! JOHNNY NOVA! EVERYONE STILL IN THE MATCH IS HELPING ONI GET RID OF CODY MARSHALL INSTEAD! CODY MARSHALL IS OVER THE ROPES! CODY MARSHALL IS PUSHED TO THE FLOOR! CODY MARSHALL IS GONE!

Erica Ford: Cody Marshall has been Eliminated!

Pierre: We are down to 9 here in this match as 24 have gone by the wayside. Azumi, Haruna, Sheridan, ONI, Johnny Nova, Jon McAdams, Theron Nikolas, Kaise, and Darkane! One of them will be leaving here with a life and career-changing opportunity! It’s a chance to guarantee you’ll be millionaire overnight! Kaise is trying to battle with ONI, slugging it out!

WWEFan: This has to be the part of the match where those who are so accustomed to brawling and slugging it out have a distinct advantage over technical wrestlers. Pinfalls and submissions don’t count! Kaise getting the better of the exchange….or SO WE THOUGHT UNTIL ONI RESPONDS WITH ANOTHER VICIOUS HEADBUTT….Kaise turns right around into a doubleteam SUPERKIIIIIIIICK COURTESY OF Darkane and Johnny! ONI finishes him off with a clothesline sending him up over and out!

Erica Ford: Kaise Boëtius has been eliminated!

Starr Stan: JON MCADAMS! HE FINALLY CAUGHT ONI BY SURPRISE, ELMINATING HIM! ONI IS OUT AND AS HE GETS UP TO HIS FEET HE REALIZES IT’S OVER!

Erica Ford: ONI has been eliminated!

Stew-O: The numbers are getting thin here! Jon not wasting a second of his opportunity to gloat about eliminating ONI, the young man screaming in his loudest voice! He is screaming at the top of his lungs for ONI to leave but ONI is just casually walking around ringside!

Jon McAdams: YOU, ARE YOU DEAF! ITS TIME FOR YOU TO LEAVE! ITS TIME FOR YOU TO…OHHHH!

(The crowd erupts as ONI spits his dreaded black mist into the eyes of Jon McAdams, leaving him a blind, confused mess as ONI makes his way to the back after picking up his chain.)

Pierre: That black mist just made Jon a vulnerable target, a target that Darkane takes advantage of using his GraveDigger! Darkane pulls McAdams out and tosses him over and to the floor, ending his bid for the 24/7 contract!

Erica Ford: Jon McAdams is eliminated!

WWEfan: This match is getting more bizzare by the second! We’ve only got seven fighters left though now so the end is nigh! Azumi and Sheridan continue their battle, but here comes Darkane! He starts punching at both women indiscriminately! Haruna coming in to help her friend and one of her long-time rivals…

Starr Stan: In her imagination.

Stew-O: The shade! But Haruna does catch a vicious elbow to the face from Darkane before he starts working over both ladies again…..ARE YOU KIDDING ME! THERON NIKOLAS THROWS HARUNA OUT OF THE RING TO THE FLOOR! WHERE IS THE HONOR IN THAT!?

Erica Ford: Haruna Sakazaki is eliminated!

Pierre: The action continues as Azumi muscles her way out of the corner in a blind rage, kicking at everthing that moves! Sheridan, Darkane, Theron, and even Johnny are feeling her wrath! She is inscencesd that Haruna was eliminated!

Starr Stan: Why the hell would she care? This is why I find the two of them crazy! They spent all this time saying it was about themselves, that they would prove that they were number one, And she was all about how Haruna was holding her back or whatever!? Why be sad that she got dumped out! It wasn’t you!

WWEFan: Good points but right now it doesn’t matter as Azumi tries to eiminiate Darkane, Johnny Nova coming over to help out but runs into Darkane, the two of them exchanging punches! Sheridan watching all of this and trying to get a rest but decides to attack Azumi! She’s got Darkane almost out but now Sheridan has her…LIFTING HER UP AND OUT TO THE ARENA FLOOR BOTH AZUMI DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE WHILE DARKANE NARROWLY SAVES HIMSELF ON THE APRON, ROLLING BACK IN!

Erica Ford: Azumi Goto has been eliminated!

Pierre: And just like that we’re down to four! Theron Nikolas, Sheridan Mulller, Darkane and Johnny Nova! Who will survive!? Sheridan, Theron and Darkane all look at each other and then at Johnny Nova….and Johnny knows that they are all gunning for him, fatigued but defiant, he holds both hands up, telling them all to bring it! The heart and guts on display from this young man are extra ordinary!

Stew-O: Will guts be enough though? Looks like we’re going to find out as Sheridan makes a move first, Johnny parries her away with a forearm blow. Darkane goes for a strike but misses and Nova hits a standing dropkick! Johnny is on fire as he dodges an elbow from Theron and takes him down with a textbook belly to belly Suplex! This man is on fire as he gets to his feet, he knows that his time is close!

StarrSTan: He has to finish them off now! The time is now!

WWEFan: Nova pulls up Darkane by the hair, a vicious chest chop and he drives him into the ropes, trying to get him over! Sheridan is up and….so much for allinances, she comes to give Johnny a hand! How about that!

Pierre: Life comes at you fast, my friends! Sheridan Is pushing with all she’s worth, as is Nova, trying to save himself from Elimination, Darkane has a frenzied grip on those ropes…he’s got Johnny by the ear….pulling him over! That’s got to be excruciating but Johnny is holding on…now Sheridan is trying to eliminate both men…Johnny doesn’t have a good grip on the ropes….HE SLIPS TO THE FLOOR, HIS BACK SMACKING AGAINST THE APRON BEFORE HE FALLS HELPLESSLY TO THE FLOOR!

Erica Ford: Johnny Nova is eliminated!

Starr Stan: Darkane and Sheridan are battling as he manages to pull himself up and back into the match….here comes THERON, BUT DARKANE BACKDROPS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! ITS ALL OVER FOR THAT GUY!

WWEFan: LOOK AT THE AGILITY DISPLAYED BY THERON THOUGH! HE MANAGED TO LAND FEET FIRST ON THE APRON, HE JUMPS OFF THE ROPES…SPRINGBOARD EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! SHERIDAN LETS DARKANE FALL BACK INTO THE ROPES, SINGLE LEG…LIFTING UP….THERON COMES TO HELP HER AND DARKANE IS GONE! A MAN WHO HAS BEEN A SPECTRE ALL BATTLE ROYAL IS FINALLY ELMNATED AND WE ARE DOWN TO TWO!

Erica Ford: Darkane has been eliminated.

Starr Stan: You can hear this crowd, I think a lot more of them are leaning in Sheridan’s direction as the two of them stand poised to do battle in the center of the ring. Sheridan has beaten men much larger than Theron but I’m not sure if she can say she’s beaten someone this chaotic. The two of them tie up and Sheridan manages to slip behind, she goes for a German Suplex but Theron counters with a headbutt! Sheridan lets go…and Theron immediately pulls her in for a blue thunder bomb!

Stew-O: This is not good for Sheridan! She’s been fighting nearly the entire time while Theron has been able to pick his spots and make this look much easier than it is! He pulls a nearly limp Sheridan up from the mat, he should just throw her over and be done with it. He’s toying with her, and Sheridan is not someone you want to mess around with. A vicious uppercut and then a slap to the face REVIVES SHERIDAN AS SHE LANDS PUNCHES, ELBOWS, KNEES, ANYTHING AND EVERYTHIING SHE CAN MUSTER! SHE SLIPS BEHIND THERON, THE YOUNG MAN REALIZES HE IS IN TROULBE TRYING TO ESCAPE BUT CANNOT!

Pierre: GERMAN SUPLEX! SHERIDAN KEEPS HER GRIP AND PULLS HIM BACK UP….A SECOND GERMAN! SHE’S PULLING HIM UP FOR A THIRD!?

WWEFan: No way……IS SHE GOING TO TRY TO DUMP HIM OUT TO THE FLOOR!? SHERIDAN SETTING HIM UP TO BE TOSSED, GERMAN SUPLEX! ITS OVER!

Starr Stan: He landed on his feet! He landed right on his feet! HE PULLS SHERIDAN IN FROM BEHIND! THE WRISTLOCK…..TOUCH….OF HEROINE!

Stew-O: NO! SHERIDAN DODDGED IT AND LANDS A FOREARM….SHE STEPS BACK AND LANDS A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK! IS SHE GOING TO TRY TO SUPLEX HIM OUT OF……OH MY GOD! THERON BACKBODY DROPS SHERIDAN OUT OF THE RING!

(DING DING DING!!!)

(“I Hope You Suffer’ by AFI plays as Theron collaspses on the arena floor, screaming in exaltation as a referee enters the ring and gives him the 24/7 Contract certificate and trophy.)

Erica Ford: Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of the 2017 24/7 Battle Royal………..THERON NIKOLAAAAAAAAAASS!

Pierre: I have never seen anything quite like this battle royal! Theron played the game perfectly, avoiding all the extra curricular activities and focused on the basics, rest and eliminating people! He was by far the freshest of the four final participants and made good on that energy with what has to be considerd his biggest career win in EAW to date! He’s bringing the prize home to Showdown and has an extremely good chance of wearing gold.

Starr Stan: It’s truly incredible, absolutely incredible.

WWEFan: I can’t say I was a big fan of all his hiding from legitimate competition during this battle royal, but a win is a win and this is one of the biggest wins you can get in EAW.

Stew-O: it’s a career launcher. Sheridan almost had it but this isn’t horse shoes, you can’t get points for being close as she surely knows, getting up now in disappointment and heading to the back.

Pierre: Thirty-four people entered the fray and now only one remains…. THERON is that one!

( “Bloodlust” by contRoVersy plays as Ares Vendetta walks out from behind the curtain in a burgundy and black variation of his wrestling gear, with a white skull image on the front of his torso attire. )

Ring Announcer: Introducing first… from The Land of The Rising Sun, weighing in at 217 POOOUNNNDSS…. AREEEEEEEEEEESSS VEEENNNDETTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

( With every step Ares takes, it creates a ‘yellow brick road’ LED image beneath his feet on the floor panels, and he walks somewhat down the ramp before stopping and waiting…. soon after, “Play for Keeps” – B.o.B plays over the loud speakers as Jaywalker walks out in a bejeweled maroon and black robe with silver trim. )

Ring Announcer: His tag team partner… from Scarborough, Canada weighing in at 250 POOOOUNNNDS…. JAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYWALKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!!

( As Jay walks down the LED yellow brick road on the floor panels, his passing leaves a trail of blood and mangled images of broken limbs behind each foot step. He and Ares continue to the ring together. )

Pierre: Jaywalker makes his 8th Pain for Pride appearance, and Ares Vendetta makes his 3rd; these two men have become acquainted by their shared passion for bloodlust and unrelenting malice! They have shown zero regard for anyone in this world, and after using their strength in numbers for months against Devan Dubian and Heart Break Boy, they walk in tonight perhaps in confidence – knowing that they might that same kind of advantage tonight!

Cherish: You may unfortunately be right about that, especially with the news that broke about HBB earlier tonight.

(Lights in Metlife Stadium completely cut out….as sounds of thunder and showings of lightening are seen around the arena, Camera pans to Metallica next to the stage wearing mask resembling the face paint of Cage as Lead singer James Hetfield takes off his mask and the band begins to play “For Whom The Bell Tolls” )

James Hetfield:
Make his fight on the hill in the early day
Constant chill deep inside
Shouting gun, on they run through the endless grey
On they fight, for they’re right, yes, but who’s to say?
For a hill, men would kill, why? They do not know
Stiffened wounds test their pride
Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
Gone insane from the pain that they surely know.

FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS!!
TIME MARCHES ON!!!
FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLSS!!!!

(As Metallica keeps playing, Cage emerges from underneath the stage donning a trench-coat that has the japanese kanji symbol for “destruction” on the back as he walks down the ramp …as he gets half-way down, flames begin to shoot out of the side of the ramp as black pyro shoots up from the stage)

Ring Announcer: Introducing their partner, from Edmonton, Alberta Canada! Weighing in at 239 pounds…. THISSSS ISSSSSSS CAAAAAAAGGGGEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Pierre: Perhaps the X-factor of this entire match! Cage looks like he could be in the best condition of his entire career, but his mentality is something we’ve never seen before! It’s a level of focus that is unseen from a usually sadistic, unconvention, uncontrolled man. This is someone who’s been inducted into the Hall of Fame as of last night, yet that was based off of a career of Cage throwing caution to the wind. Now Cage is in COMPLETE control, which could make him more dangerous than he’s ever been before in his life!

( The three await in the ring as Ares Vendetta tries to encourage Cage into making a plan, but Cage gives him a deadpan stare and shakes his head. )

( “This Means War” by A7X hits as Devan Dubian walks out confidently, almost hiding a smile on his face while cracking his knuckles and slowly walking down the ramp. )

Ring Announcer: THEIR OPPONENTS…. First…. from Leicester, England, weighing in tonight at 230 POOOUNNDSSS….. DEEEEEEEEEVAAAAAAAAAAAN DUUUUUUUUBIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!

Cherish: If I didn’t know any better, I’d think Devan Dubian is actually happy to walk into a 2 on 3 handicap match! Have the overwhelming odds finally gotten to Dubian and put a crack in his interior??

( Dubian continues to ringside, and the music goes quiet…. the audience comes to a complete stand in anticipation. )

(“I really Mean It” by The Diplomats continues as CM Banks rushes out through the curtain in a vintage NJ Nets Jersey as the entire audience loses their minds collectively and jump in applause for their hometown hero. Banks stretches out both arms and screams into the crowd of 80+ thousand, soaking in the atmosphere. )

Ring Announcer: AND HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER… RETURNING HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOME, HE IS THE FOUNDER OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING, AND NEW JERSEY’S OWN, C!!!!!!!!!!!!!! M!!!!!!!!!!!! BAAAAAAAAAAAANKSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

( The jumbo screens say “Welcome Home”, the LED ramp reads “Jersey Strong” in big bold green and white lettering. As Banks walks down the ramp, we see fireworks blast of in the sky behind him and get an aerial view of Metlife Stadium. )

Pierre: AFTER 5 LOOOOONG YEARS, CM BANKS MAKES HIS RETURN TO THE EAW RING! THE REASON WHY WE ARE ALL HERE! THE ONE WHO HAD THE VISION, THE GOAL IN HIS HEAD TO SEE THIS DAY, AND HE GETS TO SEE HIS KINGDOM FLOURISH IN THE GARDEN WHERE IT ONCE BLOOMED – IN HIS HOMETOWN!

( CM Banks and Devan Dubian continue down to the ring, and Banks continues to soak in the atmosphere… after a moment of being embraced by “THANK YOU BANKS” chants and “HOLY SHIT” chants, Banks and Dubian are at the bottom of the ramp. The two of them gesture towards the stage. )

….

( “Nas Album Done” by Nas hits, and the stadium comes into a frenzy. )

Pierre: NO WAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!

( Mak walks out, dressed to compete and wearing a fitted cap that says “GOAT” on it, as the EAW Universe becomes unglued by his arrival. )

Ring Announcer: AND THEIR TAG TEAM PARTNER……… EAW’S # 1 LEGEND, MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cherish: I THINK I’M GOING TO CRY. THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!!!

Pierre: THIS ISN’T REAL! THIS IS NOT REAL! THERE’S NO WAY THIS IS POSSIBLY HAPPENING! CM BANKS AND MAK ARE JOINING FORCES FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THEY CREATED THIS COMPANY, AND WHAT A STAGE!!!! WHAT AN OCCASION!!!!

( After a moment of time, Mak steps into the ring and daps up CM Banks, daps up Devan Dubian and climbs up to the top turnbuckle to liven up the crowd as well as salute to the EAW Universe. )

Cherish: THIS IS ICONIC. LOOK AT JAY, LOOK AT ARES, THEY’RE FUMING INSIDE! FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS ENTIRE SAGA, THEY’VE BEEN TRULY ONE-UPPED!

Pierre: Well there’s still a long ways away from the end of this chapter, but holy HELL what a plot twist! Devan Dubian is in INCREDIBLE company, as he rubs shoulders with CM BANKS AND MAK! You couldn’t possibly ask for two better people to have on your side!

( Mak’s theme dies down as the song nears its close. Mak takes off all of his gold chains, his jewelry, his hat and his fur scarf and hands them all to a stage hand. The raucous crowd continues to buzz as the official calls for the bell. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Pierre: SIX EAW HALL OF FAMERS! SIX LEGENDS WHO HAVE CHANGED THE GAME! SIX OF THE VERY BEST WRESTLERS ON THE PLANET! THIS IS WHAT PAIN FOR PRIDE IS ALL ABOUT, CHERISH! BIG FIGHT FEEL MOMENTS SUCH AS THIS! BOTH TEAMS STAND IN THE RING, STARING EACH OTHER DOWN AND THIS CROWD IS ELECTRIC!

Cherish: I CAN BARELY HEAR MYSELF THINK RIGHT NOW. I CANNOT GET OVER THAT REACTION THAT MAK RECEIVED WHEN HE WALKED ONTO THAT RAMP EITHER, PIERRE! THESE TWO TEAMS ARE TAKING THIS ALL IN RIGHT NOW, AND YET THEIR EYES DO NOT BREAK THE STARING GAZE OF ONE ANOTHER!

Pierre: But now look at this, hold on Cherish. Ares chuckles to himself, before backing up towards the ropes. Is he leaving? — NO!! ARES FIRES THE FIRST SHOT, STEPPING BACK AND FIRING A VICIOUS RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE OF DEVAN DUBIAN! AND THIS BEGINS A BRAWL! A BIG BRAWL!! BACK AND FORTH AS THESE TWO TEAMS DELIVER LEFTS AND RIGHTS TO EACH OTHER. BANKS AND JAYWALKER, MAK AND CAGE, DUBIAN AND ARES!! Dubian begins to back Ares up into a corner after taking control of their own tussle here! Countless rights to the temple of Ares, and Dub backs off! Ares stumbles against the ropes, before Dub comes roaring in with AN UPPERCUT THAT SENDS ARES OVER THE TOP AND TO THE FLOOR!!

Cherish: BUT HOLD UP! JAYWALKER DELIVERS A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF DUBIAN, AND THE FORCE SENDS HIM THROUGH THE SECOND ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE AS WELL! HOLD UP! BEHIND YOU, JAY! BANKS IS LURKING, READY TO STRIKE! JAY TURNS AROUND AND BANKS WITH A HIGH KNEE RIGHT TO THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE! JAY LANDS HARD ON THE MAT, BEFORE ROLLING UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE! CM Banks now takes the time to pose in the middle of that ring, to a huge ovation from this hot crowd here in New Jersey! But look out, CAGE FROM BEHIND! He grabs Banks by the head and tights and throws him over the top rope as well!!! WHOA LOOK OUT! FROM BEHIND! ALMOST IMMEDIATELY, MAK COMES IN AND ROLLS CAGE UP! HERE’S A COVER!!

Referee: OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEE!! TTTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!

Pierre: AND A KICK OUT! Mak and Cage are starting this match off, but the brawling has ended. Both men allow each other to get back to their feet, and both teams climb the ring apron at their respective corners! The two begin to circle the ring, slowly moving towards each other, before the two engage in a collar-and-elbow lockup! It’s a power struggle between these two men, as they try their best to push each other to the ropes, almost like a tug of war action! Mak however, ROLLS around the body of Cage, and grabs the right arm for an armlock, but Cage REACHES around the neck of Mak and takes him down the mat! Headlock applied, but Mak with the quick thinking rises back to his feet, and forces Cage towards the ropes before pushing him forward! Cage rebounds off the opposite side, and Mak with a SHOULDER TAKEDOWN!!! Cage quickly rises to one knee, and the two stare down to claps from the fans.

Cherish: Cage, annoyed, rolls to his corner and tags in Jaywalker!

Referee: TAG!!!

Cherish: Jaywalker climbs into the ring, smirking. Mak nods to himself, welcoming this challenge from the former four time World Champion! The two begin to circle the ring …. BUT HOLD ON!!! CM BANKS HOLDS HIS HAND OUT. HE WANTS TO TAG INTO THIS MATCH! Mak looks at Banks hand, before looking back at Jaywalker. Mak smiles, before TAGGING IN CM BANKS!

Referee: TAG!!!

Cherish: AND LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THIS IS INDEED A MASSIVE MOMENT. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 5 YEARS, CM BANK ENTERS THE RING, READY TO WRESTLE!! Banks smiles at Jaywalker, as the fans are chanting, “THIS IS AWESOME!” and I cannot help but to agree with them, Pierre! This is INDEED awesome! Jaywalker looks ready for this challenge, and begins to hype himself up and….

Referee: TAG!!!

Pierre: Oh come on, are you serious? Ares Vendetta has just slapped his hand on the back of Jaywalker, tagging himself in!

Ares (climbing into the ring): Get outta here, Jay! This is MY ring, and CM Banks is gonna be the guy who I’m going to p-

Cherish: BANKS WITH THE ROLLUP!!!!

Referee: OOOOONNNNNNEEEEE!!! TTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOO!!!

Pierre: Ares kicks out, and is quick to his feet, but Banks IMMEDIATELY on the offensive! Banks with elbows and forearms to the head of Ares, backing him up into a corner! Banks doesn’t let up until the referee gets in between the two! Banks backs up, before running towards Ares with a STEP-UP HIGH KNEE RIGHT TO THE JAW!!! Banks climbs off, before pulling Ares into a short-armed clothesline, taking The Black Vulture down!! Ares, stunned, rolls out of the ring towards our announce table, and Cage and Jaywalker drop from the apron to check on him.

Cherish: PIERRE, LOOK!! CM BANKS HAS ASCENDED THE TOP ROPE. HAS HE STILL GOT THE HIGH-FLYING, RISK-TAKING MOVES IN HIM?! BANKS DIIIIIVES ……. AND HE LANDS RIGHT ON CAGE AND JAYWALKER, WITH ARES PULLING THEM INTO THE MOVE TO AVOID GETTING HIT!! SERIOUSLY?!

Pierre: Whether we condone it or not Cherish, I think that was smart, because now Ares lifts Banks to a vertical base and pushes him KNEE FIRST RIGHT INTO THE STEEL POST, and Banks falls to the ground, holding his left knee in agony! Ares with a huge smirk on his face, lifts Banks back to his feet again and rolls him into the ring, but drags him towards that same steel post in their corner. He grabs that leg with that injured knee, before wrapping it AROUND that ring post! He holds it there …BEFORE STARTING TO PULL ON THE LEG! BANKS SCREAMS IN PAIN, TRYING TO CRAWL AWAY BUT TO NO AVAIL! Ares releases and rolls into the ring. He ascends to the second rope, as Banks begins to slowly crawl away from the corner, but Ares jumps and delivers a FOOT STOMP to that bad knee! This is not looking great for Banks!

Cherish: Not at all, as Jaywalker climbs back up to the apron and him and Ares share a glance. Ares holds out his hand for a tag, and Jaywalker sighs, tags himself in and enters the fray!

Referee: TAG!!!

Cherish: And Jaywalker stands over the downed Banks, and poses to heavy boos from this massive crowd here at Metlife! Mak and Dubian look very concerned right now, as CM Banks early in this match up is already facing some serious trouble here. Jaywalker turns Banks over onto his back, before stomping Banks’s right hand …. And then stomping the right side of his ribs ….. And then the right knee ….. This is Jaywalking here, Pierre!

Pierre: That it is Cherish, and Jaywalker gets to that injured knee and decides against stomping it? Interesting tactic here. Jay stomps that left hand and follows up with the knee to the skull! Jay motions back towards that knee, and lifts his leg! He flips Banks over onto his stomach and APPLIES A KNEEBAR! HE LOCKS IN A KNEEBAR, CHERISH! BANKS SCREAMS IN PAIN ONCE MORE. Banks does all he can to try and crawl his way towards the bottom rope, but Jay continues to pull on that leg hard! He’s got it in tight! Jay is just close enough to his corner to tag Cage in now!

Referee: TAG!!!

Pierre: And in he comes. Jay keeps that kneebar applied, as Cage now delivers a falling elbow to the back of Banks’ neck! Jay leaves the ring from under the bottom rope, and Cage now is on the offensive! Cage lifts Banks to his feet by the waist, wrapping his arms around his stomach. He lifts for a GERMAN SUPLEX! He doesn’t let go though, as he lifts Banks back to his feet again for a SECOND GERMAN! AND ONE MORE FOR GOOD MEASURE! Cage now drags Banks in position as he exits to the ring apron and ascends to the top rope. Cage now leaps in the air AND CONNECTS WITH A DIVING HEADBUTT! Cage hooks the leg…

Referee: OOOOONNNNEEEEE!!! TTTTTTTTWWWWOOOOOOO!!!

Cherish: And another kickout. It’s going to take a hell of a lot more than that to put CM Banks down that’s for sure. Cage one one knee, grabs Banks by the neck and applies a headlock. Banks is reeeeeally struggling right now. He tries his best to swing at the face of Cage, but Cage is in a great position here to avoid that. Over in the corner now, Dub and Mak begin to slow clap for Banks and the crowd joins in! Banks slowly rises to one knee, and delivers a hard elbow to the gut of Cage. Cage releases, and Banks is back up! He hops one his healthy leg over to a corner to regain some strength, but Cage isn’t having it. He rushes at Banks for a- … ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY BANKS!! ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY BANKS!! BOTH MEN FALL TO THE MAT, AND UNFORTUNATELY BANKS USED THE LEG WITH THE BAD KNEE, AND HE IS HOLDING ONTO IT IN PAIN! Dub begins to stomp on the steel stairs, and the crowd begin a slow clap again!! Banks slowly crawls over to his team, who are both DESPERATE to get in there!! Cage now …

Referee: TAG!!!

Cherish: Jaywalker is in!! Banks on all fours now, slowly but surely RISES TO HIS FEET AND …….. OHHHH NO! JAYWALKER WITH A SHOULDER TACKLE TO THAT BAD KNEE OF BANKS!

Pierre: Jay lifts up Banks by the head and rushes him into his corner! Forearm after forearm to both sides of Banks’ head, and he asks his partners to stand clear as he backs up. He looks over at Mak and Devan Dubian with a cocky smirk on his face, before running towards CM Banks for a RUNNING UPPERCUT!!!

NO! NO! BANKS MOTIONS OUT OF THE WAY AND JAY’S UPPER RIGHT ARM HITS HARD ON THAT TOP TURNBUCKLE! BANKS WITH A FOREARM TO THE HEAD OF ARES, AND ONE TO CAGE AS WELL! THIS IS BANKS MOMENT TO CAPITALIZE, AND HE’S DOING JUST THAT! Banks limps towards the Jay, who’s right arm is in tremendous pain! Banks drags Jaywalker into the middle of the ring, and delivers a knee to the gut using his good knee! Banks now heads for the ropes! He rebounds back for a SWINGING NECKBREAKER! …NO! JAYWALKER REVERSES IT BY SPINNING AROUND AGAIN. THE TWO FACE EACH OTHER NOW, AND JAY GOES IN FOR A BIG BOOT!!! ….NO! BANKS DUCKS AND … SWINGING NECKBREAKER THIS TIME CONNECTS! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN, AND MAK AND DEVAN ARE REAAAALLY WANTING TO GET INTO THE MATCH! BANKS CRAWLING SLOWLY TOWARDS HIS TEAM, INCH BY INCH BUT HE’S THERE … AND JAY IS IN HIS CORNER NOW! JAY TAGS IN CAGE! …. AND BANKS TAGS IN DEVAN DUBIAN!

Referee: TAG!!!

Cherish: AND HERE WE GO! DEVAN DUBIAN THE FRESHEST MAN IN THIS MATCH UP EXPLODES OUT OF HIS CORNER FOR A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE TO CAGE. DUB RUNS FORWARD TO ARES AND HE RECEIVES AN UPPERCUT, SENDING HIM FLYING OFF THE APRON! CAGE IS BACK UP, BUT DUBIAN IMMEDIATELY COMES RUSHING AT HIM WITH COUNTLESS LEFTS AND RIGHTS TO THE TEMPLE. CAGE, IN A DAZE, STUMBLES BACK INTO THE ROPES, BEFORE STUMBLING FORWARD …. DUBIAN WITH A SCOOP SLAM!! THIS CROWD IS ELECTRIC RIGHT NOW FOR DEVAN DUBIAN! WHOA, LOOK OUT!

Pierre: ARES SLIDES INTO THE RING! …. JUMPING SUPERKICK TO DUBIAN!! …. NO! NO! DUB DUCKS UNDER THE MOVE! ARES RISES TO HIS FEET USING THE ROPES FOR LEVERAGE, AND DUBIAN WITH A PICTURE PERFECT DROPKICK, SENDING ARES OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE FLOOR! DUB IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW!! Dub now begins to rise Cage to his feet, but Jaywalker now climbs up onto the apron, and yells out at Dub! Dub drops Cage back to the ring mat, and slowly walks over and goes face to face with the man! They are exchanging words, most likely insults and things we’re probably not allowed to air on live TV here and- … HEY! HEY! ARES IS BACK IN! DUBIAN TURNS AROUND … FLYING FOREARM BY ARES TO DUBIAN— ….OH MY GOD! DUBIAN ONCE AGAIN DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY OF A MANEUVER, AND ARES CLOCKS JAY INSTEAD!! THE FORCE OF THE MOVE SENDS JAYWALKER CRASHING HEAD FIRST INTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! JAY TRIED TO PROVIDE A DISTRACTION, BUT ARES COULD NOT PROVIDE A RESULT!

Cherish: And Ares is in shock right now, almost frustrated with himself! Cage pulls Ares around towards him! What on earth?! Cage and Ares now exchanging words of discouragement! Dubian now GRABS CAGE AND PUSHES HIM RIGHT INTO ARES, BEFORE PULLING HIM BACK AND LIFTING HIM UP FOR A SIDEWALK SLAM!!

…………….

PEDIGREE DRIVER!!!!!!! PEDIGREE DRIVER BY ARES VENDETTA TO DUBIAN!!!! ARES IS NOT THE LEGAL MAN! MAK ATTEMPTS TO CLIMB INTO THE RING, BUT ARES SENDS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE RIBCAGE! BOOS ALL AROUND FOR ARES, AS HE LOOKS DOWN AT BOTH OF THE MEN LAID OUT IN THE RING! Ares grabs Cage by the legs and pulls him towards his team’s corner! Ares exits to the ring apron, before leaning over the ropes and tagging himself in once again!

Referee: TAG!!!

Pierre: And Cage has just now realized what Ares has done, and he is visibly on edge! Ares Vendetta now runs the ring apron, before quickly ascending to the top rope! Devan Dubian is laid out cold after that Pedigree Driver! Ares balances himself up … he jumps …. METEORA!!!!!!!!! THE FLYING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP CONNECTS! THIS ONE IS OVER!!!! ARES HOOKS THE LEG!

Referee: OOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOO!!! TTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!

Cherish: NOOOO! NOOOO! DEVIAN DUBIAN GETS A SHOULDER UP JUST IN TIME, AND ARES IS BEYOND ANGERED RIGHT NOW!!! Ares raises his frustrations with the referee, before slowly turning his head towards Cage. These two men are on the verge of SNAPPING on each other! Ares slowly walks over towards Cage, ready to throw hands … WAIT! BEHIND ARES!! IT’S MAK! …… THE ROYAL EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!! RUNNING DOUBLE KNEES TO THE BACK OF ARES!!! Mak rises back to a vertical base, and stares Cage down, and Cage does nothing! He’s just standing there!!! Mak dares him to step inside the ring, but Cage shakes his head slowly! WHOA! WHOA! JAYWALKER!!!! THE TRANSCENSION!!!!!!!!!! THE NORTHERN LARIAT FROM BEHIND TO MAK!!! MAK HITS THE DECK HARD!!!!

Pierre: HOLD ON!!!! IT’S NOT DONE!!!! CM BANKS IS BACK UP, AND DELIVERS A KICK TO THE HEAD OF JAYWALKER, BEFORE LIFTING HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS. THE CROWD ARE ON THEIR FEET ………. GO! TO! RETIREMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JAY IS KO’ED! BANKS, SLOWLY GETS BACK TO HIS FEET, HOLDING THAT BAD KNEE IN PAIN- …… CAGE! CAGE! WHAT?!?! THE C-TRIGGER!!! THE C-TRIGGER TO CM BANKS!!!! CM BANKS SLOWLY DROPS TO HIS KNEES, BEFORE LANDING FACE FIRST ON THE RING MAT! THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE ACTION RIGHT HERE AT PAIN FOR PRIDE TONIGHT!!!

Cherish: IT’S NOT OVER!!! DUBIAN IS BACK UP. CAGE IS UNAWARE THAT DUBIAN IS LURKING BEHIND HIM …. CAGE TURNS ……… BLEEDING EDGE!!! BLEEDING EDGE!!! …… NO! WAIT NO! CAGE REVERSE IT, AND PUSHES DEVAN DUBIAN FORWARD INTO A HIGH KNEE TO THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE FROM ARES VENDETTA! ARES SOMEHOW BACK UP AFTER RECEIVING THE ROYAL EXPERIENCE FROM MAK! DUB STUMBLES BACK INTO CAGE, AND CAGE WITH A LARIAT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF DUBIAN! Cage rises to his feet, and he and Ares AGAIN stare down!!! What the hell is going on between these two?!

Pierre: Wait a minute, Cherish …. CAGE IS LAUGHING! …AND NOW ARES IS LAUGHING TOO! Cage motioning towards Ares that they should finish this right now. Cage wants to be tagged in, and Ares looks like he’s ready to oblige! Cage leaves the ring, and meanwhile Ares starts dragging Dub over towards their corner. Cage has his hand out, and Ares goes for the tag! ……HOLD ON A MINUTE!!! CAGE LIFTS HIS HAND UP IN THE AIR INSTEAD!!! ARES IS IN SHOCK! WHAT THE HELL?! CAGE DROPS DOWN FROM THE APRON. CHERISH, WHERE IS HE GOING?!

Cherish: CAGE IS DOING A WALKOUT PIERRE! CAGE IS NOT ONLY LEAVING PAIN FOR PRIDE, BUT HE’S LEAVING THIS MATCH AND HIS PARTNERS HIGH AND DRY!

Ares (off-mic): CAGE, WHERE ARE YOU GOING?! CAGE ……… CAAAAAAAAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TAG!!!

Pierre: LOOK CHERISH, LOOK! WHILE ARES IS WATCHING CAGE FROM THE RAMP, DUBIAN CALLS CM BANKS IN!!! AND NOW, MAK, BANKS AND DUBIAN ALL STAND BEHIND ARES, WHO IS THE LAST MAN ON HIS TEAM STANDING! ARES BACKS UP, UPSET AT CAGE, BUT HE RUNS RIGHT INTO MAK! ARES SLOWLY TURNS HIS HEAD TOWARDS THE THREE …. THIS IS NOT GOING TO END WELL FOR MR. VENDETTA!!!

Referee: OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!! TTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!! TTHHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“I Really Mean It” by The Diplomats plays as CM Banks, Mak, and Devan Dubian all smile in the middle of the ring, before the referee raises their arms in victory…)

Ring Announcer: THE WINNERS OF THIS MATCH … THE TEAM OF MAK, DEVAN DUBIAN AND C … M … BAAAAAANKS!!!!

Pierre: What a match, oh boy, what a match! An unfortunate dysfunction causes the team of Cage, Jaywalker and Ares to lose this legendary six-man tag team affair!

Cherish: This was stacked with drama, hard-hitting action, big moments and one comeback story with that man there standing in between Mak and Dub … CM Banks!

(The music fades out while Banks, Mak and Dub all talk to each other. Mak and Banks exchange in a hug to a huge ovation…)

Pierre: And look at that! Two absolute, cornerstone legends of this company exchange in a hug. This scene right now is awesome! Take your photos!!

Cherish: But that’s not all, Pierre! Mak and Banks now grab an arm each of Dub’s, and raise his hands in the air to another big ovation from this sold-out crowd here in Metlife Stadium! Banks and Mak almost coronating Dubian in a way! What a match, moments like these are exemplary to what Pain for Pride is all about!!!!

(The camera pans backstage to where we see Michael Belfort standing with a microphone in his hand, dressed for the occasion of Pain for Pride, with a smile gleaming from his face.)

Michael Belfort: We’ve already witnessed some amazing action and new champions crowned already here tonight at Pain for Pride X, but right now I want to talk to one of the men that will be entering in one of the matches that has been a major tradition for EAW at Pain for Pride! Please help me welcome one of Dynasty’s men inside of the Cash in the Vault Ladder Match… TLA!

(The camera pans out to be able to capture TLA, who walks up with a couple of his most beautiful Poon Palace women in glittering dresses with shades on his face, as he wears a “La Pantera Sexual” shirt along with his ring gear for the night.)

Michael Belfort: TLA, tonight you compete in a match that could instantly make you a world champion, the main goal that you’ve had in your career here in EAW. Now, you’ve been able to face the world champion before with a lack of success, but this could be the opportunity you need to have yourself be champion. How do you feel coming into Pain for Pride X tonight?

TLA: PAIN FOR PRIDE X IS THE PLACE TO BE, HOLMES! THE METLIFE STADIUM, THE PEOPLE OF NEW JERSEY, THE MAGIC THAT THIS BUILDING HAS IN ON FIRE, ESE! As for my feelins ‘bout this CITV Match, I’m not gonna front… I’m nervous. Well, I was until a smoked me a nice one before I came into this interview with you get rid of ‘em, SO I’M ON TOP OF THE WORLD RIGHT NOW! YOU COULD THROW A HUNNIT OF THOSE LADDERS ON ME AND I WOULD STILL CLIMB UP THAT LADDER FASTER THAN ANY OF MY AMIGOS WOULD CLIMB OVER TRUMP’S WALL!
Michael Belfort: Well, you have plenty of stiff competition in this match with Nico Borg, Lars Grier, Scott Oasis, Keelan Cetinich, and Maero. Do you believe that you will be able to be called Mr. Cash in the Vault at the end of the night and have that world title shot in your possession?

TLA: Didn’t I say I was gonna climb that ladder? Listen, you can ask these two FINE-ASS women who won my Poon Palace raffle to come here with me tonight, there’s no STIFFER competition THAN LA PANTERA SEXUAL! I don’t matter who’s in the match, what happens in the match, because at the end of the night, I’m gonna be Mr. Cash in the Vault! After I’m done with that, you and whoever wants to show up, they can come on over to The Poon Palace AS WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A FIESTA OF CHAMPIONS! Only 18 and up, so you better keep the ninos at home, okay? Look, I’ll give you my card and you show up because when I win this match, we’re going at it ALL… NIGHT… LONG!

(TLA slides a card into his pocket and takes his shades down, revealing his red-eyes for a confident wink, pulling them back up and walking out of the interview with the ladies as he screams in excitement for the match to come.)

(Video package plays, recapping the feud between Y2Impact and the Heart Break Gal)

(The camera cuts back to the stage at MetLife Stadium)

(A lifesize Y2Impact cardboard cutout is seen in the middle of the ring facing the entrance way with a heart shape lazily spray painted on its chest. The crowd begins to give mixed reaction. Until the arena’s light turns off to pitch black. White and red flashes of light come from the ramp)

“Are you on the Square?”

“Are you on the level?”

“Are you ready to swear right here right now…

Before the devil?”

( “Square Hammer” – Ghost starts to play from the intro as intense purple mist fill the arena, and bright white lights flashes on the entrance way.)

(The Heart Break Gal comes out from the mist wearing a green camo shorts and a black unzipped jacket over her white top, with a smirk on her face. On her back hangs a bow, and a quiver containing a single arrow. She takes the bow, and pulls back the arrow through the string as it points to the cardboard. HBG effortlessly shoots and it directly hits the painted heart shape right on “Y2Impact’s” chest.)

(HBG flips her long blonde hair as she proceeds to walk down the ramp, still with a smirk on her face.)

Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is a LOSER LEAVES EAW MATCH!!…. First, making her way towards the ring…. She hails from Dallas, Texas!…. She weighed in tonight at 130 Pounds!…. SHE IS “THE CONSIGLIERE”…. THIS IS THE HEART! BREAK!! GAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!….

(Red and yellow fireworks on the side of the ramp go off, as did the arrow causing a small flame at the upper half of the cardboard.)

Pierre: A very symbolic entrance here from the Heart Break Gal! The stakes have absolutely never been higher for her than they are tonight. She’s not just fighting a man she considered her greatest ally at one point, but she’s fighting for her entire CAREER!

Cherish: Keep in mind she’s the one who asked for this to be “Loser Leaves EAW” Match, Stew – she WANTED this, and she knew there was just no way that she and Y2Impact could co-exist in this company anymore after all they’ve already done to one another!

(HBG slides in the ring as she poses on the corner. She turns and looks back to “Y2Impact” impaled by the flaming arrow. She takes off her jacket, revealing her white top that says “TIL DEATH DO US PART” HBG’s smile turns into a serious expression, as she blows a kiss to the burning “Y2Impact” and her theme fades)

Pierre: This is the biggest match of this woman’s career, and she shows no fear whatsoever, I just hope she knows what she’s getting into…

(“Twisted Transistor” by Korn plays all throughout MetLife Stadium as a scowling Y2Impact makes his way out to the stage, wearing only purple, black and silver attire with “GOATPACT” on the back of them)

Announcer: And her opponent!…. Now making his way towards the ring…. He hails from Seattle, Washington!…. He weighed in tonight at 226 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE QUINTESSENTIAL CHAMPION”…. Y! 2!! IMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPPAAAAAACCCCTTTTTT!!!….

Pierre: Wow, I don’t think I have ever in all my years imagined a man as eccentric as Y2Impact would come out here without some grand entrance, but it looks like he truly means business more than he ever has for this contest!

Cherish: You’re right, there’s no big fancy set up or pyro going off or even some fancy attire, Impact is walking into this with a much different mindset from the looks of things! He set out on a mission to punish the Heart Break Gal, and he’s managed to do that every opportunity he’s gotten.

Pierre: Absolutely, he’s gone out of his way to demean the Heart Break Gal at every turn, comparing her to a dog and telling the World he has no choice but to put her down. It might not be as easy as he thinks. Nonetheless, he’s still Y2Impact, a former SEVEN-TIME World Champion and one of the best to ever step foot in a ring, so the odds are still very much stacked in his favor.

(Y2Impact enters the ring, staring down with the Heart Break Gal as “Twisted Transistor” fades out. The Referee makes sure both competitors are ready before calling for the bell)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Cherish: Two people will put their careers in EAW on the line; one person will be left standing, and we find out who that will be… right now. Both HBG and Impact standing in their respective corner; Impact hurling abuse HBG’s way, but HBG seems to allow it to brush off her shoulders, taking a deep breath and keeping her composure. HBG is the first to step forward, walking to the middle of the ring; Impact scoffing before that arrogant smirk returns to his face. Impact stepping forward and getting into the face of HBG; he’s telling her she has one opportunity to lay down… but HBG defiantly shakes her head. She came for a war, and she’s certainly not going to throw all of it away – AND HBG STRIKES FIRST WITH AN OPEN HANDED SLAP TO THE FACE OF Y2IMPACT! THE SMIRK ON THE FACE OF IMPACT IS GONE; REPLACED BY PURE DISDAIN AS HE FIRES BACK WITH A CLOSED FIST! BUT, HBG DUCKS UNDERNEATH AND FOLLOWS WITH A SPINNING BACK TO KICK TO THE STOMACH! IMPACT DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE AND HBG DRIVES THE POINT OF HER KNEE INTO THE HEAD! Impact sent rolling back under the bottom rope, but HBG looks to maintain the early control. Impact shaking his head, trying to get rid of those cobwebs as HBG stalks from inside the ring – AND HBG VAULTS HERSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE! IMPACT MOVES OUT OF THE WAY… BUT HBG SEES IT COMING AND LANDS ON THE APRON! Impact thinks that he’s outsmarted his former partner as a smirk now crosses the face of HBG as he stands in wait! Impact turns around, BUT TURNS STRAIGHT INTO A PENALTY THAT CONNECTS FLUSH TO THE CHEST! THE IMPACT SWEEPING IMPACT’S LEGS FROM UNDER HIM AND HE CRASHES DOWN TO THE THIN PADDING THAT COVERS THE CONCRETE FLOORING!

Pierre: HBG has without question brought her absolute best tonight, but she can’t allow to give Impact an inch. HBG remains on the apron just watching as Impact pushes himself back to his feet; the referee already being lenient with his count seeing how much has been placed on the line between these two respectively. Impact’s back to his feet as HBG leaps off the apron with the Hurricanrana! NO, IMPACT CATCHES HER AND BLOCKS! HBG’S IN A BAD, BAD POSITION AS IMPACT SWINGS AND DRIVES HER HEAD AND NECK FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! HE’S NOT FINISHED! IMPACT SWINGS HER BACK THE OTHER WAY AND DOES IT AGAIN! BACK THE OTHER WAY! AND AGAIN! IMPACT RELENTLESSLY SWINGING HBG BACK AND FORTH INTO THE BARRICADE! HE FINALLY RELENTS AS HBG DROPS DOWN TO THE FLOOR, BUT THAT SAVAGE! IMPACT TOLD HER THAT SHE HAD ONE CHANCE! I SAID SHE COULDN’T GIVE THE MAN AN INCH AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED! THIS THING MAY HAVE ALREADY SLIPPED OUT OF THE HANDS OF THE HEART BREAK GAL BEFORE IT HAD EVEN STARTED! Impact dragging HBG back to her feet and rolls her back into the ring and quickly follows, scurrying into the cover….

ONE!!

Cherish: HBG POWERS OUT AT ONE!!

Pierre: It’s not surprising; HBG’s going to show that she’s not hurting, but there’s no way that she isn’t. She has a whole lot of guts, but if that was the beginning of what Impact is willing to do to the woman – I’d hate to see what’s going to come next. Look at Impact! The man’s smiling! It’s like he’s glad that she kicked out! Impact getting back to his feet as HBG rolls onto her stomach and defiantly pushes herself up to her hands and knees – but Impact fires with a vicious punt to the ribs! HBG screams in pain as she tries to roll away, but Impact grabs a handful of her hair and drags her back into the middle of the ring. The referee trying to pry Impact away as he releases his grip – only to drop into that mount AND BEGIN TO FIRE AWAY WITH THOSE CLOSE FISTED RIGHT HANDS TO THE HEAD! THE REFEREE IMMEDIATELY INTERJECTING HIMSELF, BUT IMPACT REFUSES TO STOP! THE REFEREE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO BEGIN THAT COUNT! IMPACT HAS TO FIVE BEFORE HE’S DISQUALIFIED!

ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!… FIV-

Pierre: IMPACT JUST, JUST STOPS BEFORE THAT COUNT REACHES FIVE!

Cherish: I think that it’s clear to see that Impact’s going to punish HBG tonight. He’s going to punish her for choosing that Answers World Championship over The Mercenaries; choosing that World Championship over him. Impact getting back to his feet as HBG still defiantly tries to push herself back up again. Impact dragging back up to get feet and sends her into the corner with the irish whip! HBG manages to stop herself as Impact looks to follow it up with something! HBG catches Impact with her legs and looks for the headscissors takedown, but Impact pushes her up and over the top rope! HBG lands on the apron as Impact swings with a wild right hand! HBG ducks underneath and drives her shoulder under the top rope and into the stomach of Y2Impact! Impact stumbles back as HBG slingshots her back up onto the top turnbuckle looking to fly – BUT IMPACT PUSHES HER LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HER! HBG falling back down to the apron, clutching onto the ropes; she pulls herself back to her feet – BUT THE MOMENT THAT SHE DOES, Y2IMPACT DRIVES HIS FEET INTO THE BACK OF HER HEAD WITH THE TRIANGLE DROPKICK! HBG SENT FLYING OFF THE APRON AND CRASHES TO THE FLOOR! HBG clutching back at her neck as Impact slides out of the ring like a shark that’s smelt blood! Impact quickly dragging HBG back to her feet, powers her up and drives her chest first into the barricade! HBG clutches at her chest, remaining on her feet, but Impact rolls her straight back into the ring and jumps up onto the apron! HBG taking in those deep breaths as Impact slingshots himself over the top rope and connects with the twisting splash! Impact hooks the leg!

ONE!!… TWO!!… KICKOUT!!

Cherish: HBG KICKS OUT AGAIN!

Pierre: But, this time it wasn’t so adamantly. The damage is adding up and it’s adding up fast. Other than that opening flurry from HBG – it’s been all Y2Impact. HBG needs to find her way back into this match, and I don’t believe that he’s going to give her the chance. Impact getting back to his feet and just stalks. I believe he may be ready to put HBG’s down and her career down with it. HBG slowly rising back to his feet as Impact stalks – TRAMP STAMP?! HBG POPPING TO HER FEET AND HITS THE TRAMP STAMP! NO, IMPACT CAUGHT THE BOOT – BUT, HBG FIRES WITH THE ENZIGURI TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! IMPACT IS STUNNED! HBG lays on the canvas stumbling back to her feet as Impact tries to regain his bearings! Impact shoot forward – BUT HBG DRIVES BOTH FEET INTO THE RIGHT KNEE OF IMPACT AND HE’S SENT CRASHING THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE! HBG getting back to her feet and Impact lands on his! Impact shoots back up onto the apron – BUT, THIS TIME THE TRAMP STAMP CONNECTS FLUSH! IMPACT FALLING BACK OFF THE APRON AS HBG STANDS THERE LOOKING DOWN AT HER FALLEN FOE!

Cherish: THAT KICK MAY HAVE JUST TURNED IMPACTS LIGHTS OUT! But, HBG doesn’t look finished, assessing the situation… before making her way up to the top rope! A stunned Y2Impact using the barricade to drag himself back to his feet as HBG steadies herself! HBG’S LOOKING TO FLY! GOOD GOD! THE HEART BREAK GAL LEAPING OFF THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE, TAKING OUT Y2IMPACT WITH A MOONSAULT!! BOTH ARE DOWN!! THE IMPACT MAY HAVE HAD THE SAME EFFECT ON BOTH OF THEM, BUT IT’S THE OPENING THAT HBG NEEDED! THE REFEREE BEGINNING TO COUNT AS BOTH HBG AND IMPACT TRY TO RECOVER!

ONE!!… TWO!!… THREE!!…

Cherish: You have to think that the first person back to their feet has the advantage. Impact was knocked into a daze as HBG drags herself back to her feet. Impact pushing himself back up too, but he’s not in the greatest condition. HBG rolling Impact back into the ring and climbs back up to apron and begins to ascend back up to the top rope. Impact slowly recovering as HBG sits perched in wait. Impact pushing himself onto his hands and knees AS HBG LEAPS… AND DRIVES BOTH FEET INTO THE LOWER SPINE OF Y2IMPACT WITH THAT VELOCITY 9!! IMPACT’S SPINE JARRING IN PAIN AS HBG SHOOTS BACK TO HER FEET! SHE ISN’T FINISHED! IMPACT DEFIANTLY PUSHING HIMSELF BACK UP – BUT RIGHT INTO POSITION FOR DEATH BY BANE! CURB STOMP TO THE SEVEN TIME WORLD CHAMPION! HAS HBG DONE IT?! HBG HOOKING BOTH LEGS!!

ONE!!… TWO!!… TH–KICKOUT!!

Cherish: NO!! IMPACT KICKS OUT!!

Pierre: You can see by the look in the eyes of the Heart Break Gal, Cherish! She knows that it may have been her one opportunity to put Impact away and it wasn’t enough! HBG getting back to her feet and takes a look out at the thousands in attendance! The hint of a smile crossing her face before she slowly backs into the corner and begins to tune up the band! She’s already nailed on Tramp Stamp tonight and she looks to knock out Impact with another! Impact slowly pushing his way back to his feet, but he may be better off staying down! IMPACT’S UP — THE TRAMP STAMP CONNECTS!! NO, IMPACT CAUGHT TO LEG AGAIN AND SWEEPS THE OTHER OUT FROM UNDER HER!! HE’S LOOKING TO LOCK IN THAT WALLS OF IMPACT – BUT HBG USES THE STRENGTH IN HER LEGS TO POWER OUT OF IT AND SEND IMPACT TUMBLING AWAY! Both rushing to their feet, Impact a second faster and charges forward! BUT, HBG USES THE MOMENT TO POWER HIM UP ONTO HER SHOULDER AND DROPS HIM HEAD FIRST AGAINST HER KNEE WITH THE FIREMAN’S CARRY NECKBREAKER! IMPACTS DOWN AS HBG SHOOTS BACK UP AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE! LIONSAULT! NO, IMPACT ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY, BUT HBG LANDS ON HER FEET! HBG CHARGING FORWARD — BUT IMPACT LAUNCHES HER UP INTO THE AIR AND DRIVES HER DOWN WITH THE POWERBOMB!! IMPACT HOLDS THE COVER!!

ONE!!… TWO!!… KICKOUT!!

Cherish: HBG KICKS OUT!!

Pierre: BUT, IMPACT USES THE MOMENTUM TO LOCK IN THE WALLS OF IMPACT!! A THING OF BEAUTIFUL FROM SEVEN REIGNS HIMSELF!!HBG MAY HAVE NOWHERE TO GO AS SHE SCREAMS IN PAIN!! THE TORQUE ON THE SPINE IS INCREDIBLE, BUT SHE REFUSES TO QUIT!! HBG DETERMINED TO GET TO THE ROPES!! IMPACT REARING BACK WITH EVERYTHING HE CAN PHYSICALLY MUSTER, BUT THE HEART BREAK GAL REFUSES TO GIVE UP!! IMPACT DRIVING THAT BOOT INTO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF HBG!! IF SHE ISN’T GOING TO SUBMIT, HE MAY JUST KNOCK HER OUT!! HBG IS FADING – SHE’S ALMOST THERE!! SHE’S… SHE’S… SHE’S OUT!! NO!! NO!! HBG GOT TO THE ROPES!! HBG JUST GOT TO THE BOTTOM ROPE, BUT THE DAMAGE HAS TO BE DONE!! IMPACT REFUSING TO RELEASE THE HOLD AS THE REFEREE TRIES TO PRY HIM OFF OF HER!! IMPACT FINALLY RELEASES THE WALLS OF IMPACT, BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH MORE THE WOMAN CAN TAKE!!

Cherish: YOU CAN TELL BY THE LOOK IN THE EYES OF Y2IMAPCT!! THE GAMES ARE OVER!! HE’S READY TO PUT AN END TO THE CAREER OF THE HEART BREAK GAL!! HBG CLUTCHING AT HER BACK, BUT SHE DEFIANTLY USES THE ROPES TO DRAG HERSELF BACK UP!! IMPACT’S SEEMS LIKE A MAN POSSESSED!! HE’S BEGGING, SCREAMING FOR HBG TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET!! HBG IS… SHE’S UP — EVISCERATION!! NO!! HBG CATCHES HIM!! WHAT POWER BY THE FOUR TIME VIXEN’S CHAMPION!! IMPACT SHAKING HIS HEAD AS HBG WALKS BACK – BEFORE DROPPING BACK AND SENDING IMPACT CRASHING HEAD FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! HBG NEEDS TO CAPITALIZE, BUT IMPACT ROLLS ONTO THE APRON!! HBG just sitting there, exhaustion beginning to see in as these two wage war to bring the other’s time in EAW to an end. Impact trying to shake out the cobwebs as HBG pushes herself back to her feet. You can see by the strain in her face, pain shooting through her body with every time she moves. But, she refuses to give up. She continues to fight, and shall while she has something left in the tank. Impact grabbing onto the middle rope and pulls himself up, but he’s still obviously stunned. HBG’s back to her feet and makes her way over to her former partner. Impact swings for a wild right, but HBG ducks underneath!

Pierre: HBG WITH A ROPE AIDED KICK TO THE HEAD! IMPACT GOES TO FALL BACK, BUT LATCHES ONTO THE TOP ROPE!! IMPACT PULLS HIMSELF BACK UP AND SWINGS FOR ANOTHER SHOT, BUT HBG DUCKS UNDERNEATH AGAIN, THIS TIME DRIVING HER SHOULDER INTO THE STOMACH OF IMPACT! NO, IMPACT DODGES — EVISCERATION!! Y2IMPACT WITH THE EVISCERATION OUT OF FREAKING NOWHERE!! HBG IS CAUGHT UP IN THE ROPES, BUT IMPACT GRABS HER BY THE ARM AND SENDS HER CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE AS HE ROLLS BACK FROM THE APRON BACK INTO THE RING!! LOOK!! LOOK!! IMPACT’S TELLING THE REFEREE TO COUNT!! HE’S HAPPY WITH THE COUNTOUT VICTORY!! THE REFEREE GRITS HIS TEETH AND BEGINS TO COUNT!!

ONE!!… TWO!!… THREE!!… FOUR!!…

Pierre: HBG IS BARELY MOVING!! SHE TRIES TO GRAB THE CURTAIN COVERING UNDERNEATH THE RING, BUT I DON’T THINK SHE HAS THE ENERGY TO DRAG HERSELF UP AND BACK INTO THE RING!!

FIVE!!… SIX!!… SEVEN!!… EIGHT!!…

Cherish: COME ON, HBG!! SHE’S REFUSING TO STAY DOWN!! IMPACT SCREAMING THAT IT’S ALL OVER, BUT PURE FIRE ENGULFS THE EYES OF THE HEART BREAK GAL AS SHE FORCES HERSELF BACK UP!!

NINE!!…

Cherish: SHE’S ALMOST THERE!!

TEN!!

Pierre: IT’S—

Cherish: SHE MADE IT!! HBG GOT BACK INTO THE RING!! THIS ONE CONTINUES!! IMPACT IS IN COMPLETE SHOCK!! COME ON, HBG!! HBG PUSHES HERSELF BACK UP AND IMPACT SHAKES HER HEAD!! HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! HBG GETS BACK TO HER FEET AS IMPACT CHARGES FORWARD — BUT HBG SWEEPS HIS LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM AND TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! HBG FIRING AWAY WITH THOSE RIGHTS TO THE HEAD, BUT IMPACT MANAGES TO SHOVE HER AWAY!! HBG SHOOTS BACK TO HER FEET, AS DOES IMPACT — HBG WITH A JUMPING KNEE TO THE JAW!! IMPACT DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE AS HBG HITS THE ROPES AND REBOUNDS WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! IMPACT DUCKS UNDERNEATH, CATCHES THE ARM AND HOOKS THE HEART BREAK GAL!! THE HAIL MARY!! FULL NELSON FACEBUSTER!! NO, HBG DROPS FORWARD AND Y2IMPACT IS SENT ROLLING OVERHEAD!! IMPACT SCRAMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET — TRAMP STAMP!! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY!! I DON’T BELIEVE I’VE EVER SEEN IT HIT SO CLEANLY!! IMPACT IS STILL STANDING, BUT THE IMPACT TURNS HIM AROUND!! HBG FOLLOWS IT WITH AN INVERTED HURRICANRANA!! IMPACT SPIKED ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD!!

Pierre: NO!! COME ON IMPACT!! IMPACT STUMBLES BACK UP TO HIS FEET, BUT BACK INTO THE ARMS OF HBG!! DRAGON SUPLEX!! IMPACT SNAPPED ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD AGAIN!! THAT SMILE CROSSING THE FACE OF HBG – SHE KNOWS SHE HAS HIM EXACTLY WHERE SHE WANTS HIM!! HBG BACKING INTO THE CORNER ONCE AGAIN!! SHE’S LOOKING FOR THAT FINAL BLOW!! HBG CALLING IMPACT BACK TO HIS FEET!! YOU CAN FEEL IT SLIPPING AWAY!! IMPACT SLOWLY PUSHING HIMSELF BACK UP!! HIS EYES ARE COMPLETELY GLAZED OVER!! HBG CLOSING HER EYES AND TAKES A DEEP BREATH; ALMOST A MOMENT OF CLARITY!! IMPACTS UP!! TRAMP STAMP!! TRAMP STAMP!! TRAMP STAMP!! Y2IMPACT’S TEETH ALMOST KICKED DOWN HIS THROAT!! HBG FALLS INTO THE COVER!!

ONE!! TWO!! KICKOUT!!

Cherish: WHAT?!

Pierre: IT’S NOT ENOUGH!! IT’S NOT ENOUGH!! HBG IS IN COMPLETE SHOCK!! SHE CAN’T BELIEVE!! WE CAN’T BELIEVE IT, AND I DON’T BELIEVE THE THOUSANDS IN ATTENDANCE CAN EITHER!! THIS IS PAIN FOR PRIDE!! THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT!! LEAVING EVERY FIBRE OF YOUR BEING IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT RING!! HBG’S HEAD IS IN HER HANDS; SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!! WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO KEEP THE SEVEN TIME WORLD CHAMPION DOWN?! HBG looking over at the corner; you can see the gears in her head ticking over, but I don’t know if she has the energy. Impact hasn’t moved since kicking out, it may have been nothing more than pure instinct; that was absolutely one hell of a Tramp Stamp from HBG. HBG grabbing an arm and a leg of Impact and drags him over into the corner before beginning to make that climb up top! If she want’s to keep Impact down, it’s going to have to take her absolute best shot! She hits this and it’s all over, but if she misses, she may be throwing her EAW career away! Impact is barely stirring as HBG steadies herself. HBG stands perched — EMPERIAL LANDING!! CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! IT,.. IT MISSES!! IMPACT ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!! HBG LANDS ON HER FEET, BUT SHE MAY BE RIGHT FOR THE PICKING!! IMPACT SHOOTS BACK TO HIS FEET!! HBG TURNS AROUND AND IMPACT SWEEPS HER LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HER!! HE’S TRYING TO TURN HER INTO THE WALLS OF IMPACT!! HBG POSSIBLY COULDN’T WITHSTAND THIS AGAIN!! IMPACT TRYING…

Cherish: WAIT!! WAIT!! HBG PULLS IN INTO THE ROLL UP!!

ONE!! TWO!! THR—KICKOUT!!

Cherish: IMPACT KICKS OUT AS BOTH SCRAMBLE BACK TO THEIR FEET!! WHO IS GOING TO BE THE FIRST UP — EVISCERATION!!… BY THE HEART BREAK GAL!! HBG WITH THE EVISCERATION TO IT’S INVENTOR!! IMPACT PLUMMETS BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS AS HBG CRAWLS INTO THE COVER AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!

ONE!!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!! THREEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Cherish: SHE DID IT!! THE HEART BREAK GAL DID IT!! SHE HAS BEATEN Y2IMPACT!! IMPACT MUST LEAVE EAW!!

(“King of the World” – Porcelain and the Tramps hits as HBG rolls off of Y2Impact and the two just lay on the canvas. HBG painfully sits up and just looks at Y2Impact who still remains unmoved. She pushes herself back to her feet and the referee raises her hand.)

RA: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… THE HEART!! BREAK!! GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!!!!

Cherish: THESE TWO PLACED EVERYTHING ON THE LINE TONIGHT; Y2IMPACT PLACED HBG THROUGH ABSOLUTE HELL LEADING INTO THIS EVENT, AND TONIGHT WAS NO DIFFERENT – BUT THE HEART BREAK GAL STANDS TALL!! THE HEART BREAK GAL VANQUISHES HER FORMER PARTNER!!

Pierre: I’m… speechless.

Cherish: IT WAS ABOUT WHO WAS GOING TO GET THEIR FIRST AND HBG WAS A STEP AHEAD!! THERE WERE SO MANY TIMES WE THOUGHT IT WAS IT!! THE WALLS OF IMPACT!! THE EVISCERATION FROM THE APRON SENDING HBG TO THE OUTSIDE!! THAT BRUTAL TRAMP STAMP!! BUT IT WAS AN EVISCERATION TO ITS CREATOR THAT SPELT HIS DOOM!! YOU SAID IT PERFECTLY, THIS IS WHAT PAIN FOR PRIDE IS ALL ABOUT; EVERYONE LEAVING THEIR SPIRIT IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT RING FOR THEIR MOMENT!! SOAK IT IN HBG, YOU DESERVE EVERY PIECE OF IT!!

(HBG backs up the ramp as she looks back at Y2Impact who’s beginning to sit up. “King of the World” fades out as looks around while a team of security surrounds the ring)

Pierre: Uh oh… I think Impact just realized what happens next! He agreed to this stipulation! He wanted this match, and now he’s gotta pay the price!

(Y2Impact slowly rises back to his feet, looking around, locking eyes with the Heart Break Gal as she watches from the stage)

Cherish: I’ve never seen such hate in this man’s eyes! HBG just got him removed from EAW and he knows it! He just lost everything! AND HERE HE GOES AS IMPACT GOES TO THE OUTSIDE, HEADING STRAIGHT FOR HBG!! SECURITY IMMEDIATELY STOPS HIM! IMPACT ISN’T STOPPING AS HE THROWS SHOTS AT THEM!! THERE’S TOO MANY! THE ENTIRE TEAM OF SECURITY OVERWHELMING Y2IMPACT AS HE STRUGGLES, CUSSING AT THE HEART BREAK GAL, DOING ALL HE CAN TO GET TO HER AND PAY HER BACK FOR THIS!! HE’S LOST IT!

Pierre: I never in all my years would have ever thought it would end like this between these two, but here it is, and what a sight it is!

(Security restrains a still struggling and yelling Y2Impact as they force him up the ramp, passed the Heart Break Gal as she looks on with a smirk on her face)

Cherish: After weeks of humiliation at the hands of this man, the Heart Break Gal just got redemption in one Hell of a way! He’s gone! Impact has been forced to Leave EAW and she’s free to pursue whatever she wants! She looks like she could not be happier! What a massive win tonight at Pain For Pride for the Heart Break Gal!

(The camera slowly fades elsewhere.)

(Ad for Territorial Invasion)

(The camera pans towards the CITV briefcase hanging above the ring where the crowd of Met-life Stadium explode in cheers and excitement for the upcoming match. A video package plays of the Cash in the Vailt participants and events leading up to the night)

RA: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS THE ANNUAL CASH IN THE VAULT LADDER MATCH!!!!

(“Ambitionz az a Ridah” – Tupac blasts around the arena as the video of TLA plays on the titranton before he comes out to the ring. The ramp was flashing green lights as six women on cat outfits comes out to the ramp first before TLA himself makes an entrance. The women make way for their king, as TLA comes out holding a leash where his black steroid dog is chained.)

RA: Introducing first… from The Poon Palace of Miami, Florida…. WEIGHING AT 220 POUNDS…. A former Interwire Champion… T!!!!!!!!!!!! L!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: And here comes the man who should be as motivated as ANY in this particular match-up. Just remember HOW close he was to having a GUARANTEED world title shot, on this very night – by finishing runner-up to the Pizza Boy at Grand Rampage. It was a bittersweet moment for TLA of course, for him to come so close to the pinnacle moment, but also the realization in hindsight that he’s just ON the cusp of solidifying his place as an elite talent. He should be one of the favorites going into this prestigious ladder match for this reason alone.

(TLA comes in the ring with a big smile on his face with the dog, who is staring directly and fiercely at Pierre McGuire.)

Pierre: I have a bad feeling about this… WAIT NO!!!!

(TLA unleashed his dog and it runs towards Pierre, getting on top of the announce table growling at him)

Pierre: G-good… Doggy… I still have the night to commentate! Please don’t kill me!

(TLA laughs and whistles, steriod dawg stops barking and goes back into the ring with TLA before the lights dim and an ominous music plays)

(A man lays down an all-black stretcher, being wheeled into the ramp by Madison Kaline who is wearing a white nurse outfit as they were guided by a red spotlight. He wears a blood-splattered strait jacket and a black mask that covers the lower part of his face. Madison stops mid-way and removes the mask, and it was seen Keelan Cetinich on the strecher as he sits straight, allowing Madison to remove his straitjacket. Madison points at the CITV briefcase, as she gently leads his face to the same direction. Different colors of lights then start to flash now as “Oblivion” – 30 Seconds to Mars starts to play)

RA: And introducing…. From Logan City, Australia…. weighing at 218 pounds… he is “The Hannibal Lecter of Hardcore”… KEEEEEEELLLLAAAAAAAANNNNNNN CETINNNIIIIICHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pierre: Quite an interesting nickname, but it fits the character on display, no? Keelan has risen up the Voltage ranks throughout the calendar year, forging himself an essence of unorthodox quality and style. Keelan hasn’t exactly been playing it nice since 2017 hit, so I wouldn’t expect tonight to serve as any different. He is an amazing, young talent – with loads of potential waiting to bust — this is sounding wrong isn’t it? Well, you get the point! Keelan has tormented the Voltage roster, and he hopes to do the same here tonight, while cementing himself as Mr. CITV!

(Keelan makes his way to the ring while hyping up the fans, as they respond with cheers. The camera pans to the CITV briefcase and a bird was spotted sitting on top of it… a Raven. Then the lights dim once more)

“This is survival of the fittest”

“This is do or die”

“This is winner takes it all”

“So take it all…”

(“Survival” – Eminem blasts all over the arena as flocks of raven by the hundreds come from behind the curtains, flying right up to the open arena and to the sky. Lars Grier comes out after the ravens as he makes his way to the ring with a determined look on his face.)

RA: Introducing…. From Cincinatti, Ohio… Weighing in at 291 pounds…. He is “The Raven”…. LAAAAARRRSSSSSSSSSS GRIEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(The crowd cheers as he checks the competition before entering the ring, as he stands on the ring apron outside mouthing “It’s my night” to his opponents. He jumps through the ropes and into the ring, and the pyro from all four corners of the ring go off, to TLA and Keelan’s surprise)

Stew-O: And here comes the heralded blue chip prospect of the Showdown roster, a much wanted asset to any of the three brands at the EAW Draft. He is competing in his first Pain For Pride, but let me tell you – NO STAGE is too big for this young man. He is a bullish competitor, one that all his peers must marvel at. Just the presence of him is enough to warrant a second and third look. I feel many are underestimating this man’s chances here tonight, but considering his track record on Showdown – I’d consider him a strong darkhorse candidate. He’s not here via luck or fortune, Lars Grier is representing Showdown in this CITV match because he’s on the cusp of truly maximizing his potential. Watch out for him, you might just be looking at a future world champion!

(“You Want it Darker” – Leonard Cohen blasts around the arena as Nico Borg enters in his black robe above his ring gear. He stops midway through the ramp, as he spreads his arms, getting negative reaction from the crowd)

RA: Making his way to the ring…. From Valetta, Malta… He is “The Maltese Falcon”… NICOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BORGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Nico continues to walk down the ramp and up the ring, as he takes off his robe. He wears an arrogant smirk on his face while he eyes on his opponents)

Pierre: One of the fiercest, convicted men to ever grace an EAW ring. Nico Borg listens to only one voice, and anybody that tread on Nico’s path or faith – will often meet his own version of a rapture consequence. Nico Borg, much like Keelan Cetinich, has risen through the ranks of Showdown, in a short period of time, to be quite frank. He SHOULDN’T be here, he SHOULDN’T be THIS good, already. But alas, here he is – as one of the more formidable, accomplished names in this match. Not only is he a former 24/7 Battle Royal winner, but he successfully cashed in such an opportunity for championship gold. Is Pain For Pride X going to have the same fate for Mr. Borg as the predecessor? Only time will tell, and luckily for us, we don’t have much longer to answer this question.

(“Twisted” by Missio hits. The lights go down and a spotlight hits the stage where Maero is standing in a dark robe looking at the floor. He looks up and cocks his head revealing a skull mask. He takes a step forward and he pulls his two pistols from beneath the rope. As Maero walks down the ramp the music cuts out and a sound clip of Reaper from Overwatch screaming “Die, die, die!” plays, as it does Maero spins and shoots blanks into the audience. As the sound clip ends Maero drops his guns and the music continues.)

RA: Hailing from Sydney, Australia…. Weighing in 175 pounds…. “The Priest of Life…. HE IS… MAEEEEEEEROOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Maero slides into the ring and climbs the ring post. He pulls his mask off and tosses it into the audience. He removes his robe and tosses it onto the floor revealing his ring gear. He makes a gun with his fingers and waves it around the room, it’s aim eventually falls on his own head. He waits for a swell in the music before pulling the trigger. He rolls his head on his shoulders before hopping down.)

Stew-O: And probably the most underrated talent in all of EAW, Voltage’s own – MAERO! You can’t exactly delve into this man’s history, without first mentioning the sheer menacing demeanor he carries into any arena he walks into. I won’t go as far to say that he’s a sickened individual, but yeah, he should probably be checked into a psyche ward, before checking into an opportunity to become only the 10th ever Mr. CITV! Anonymous undertones aside, he is a one-of-a-kind talent in EAW… and he truly, TRULY has what it takes to become world champion some day. Is tonight the night in which he gravitates towards such an ascension?

(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar hits as Scott Oasis comes to the ring with a fierce look on his face, wearing a trench coat over his ring gear. He stops at the entrance way and takes off his coat to show off his gear and physique to the audience who cheer his name.)

RA: And introducing… From Baltimore Maryland… weighing in 260 pounds and a former World Heavyweight Champion…. He is “The Ice Man”… SCOTTTTTTTTTTTT OAAASIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pierre: AND HERE COMES THE LATEST HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE, SCOTT OASIS. Just look at him, and you can see why he’s become a Hall of Famer in just a matter of years in EAW lore. He is a beast that was molded into a man’s body, and the end result ended up being tormenting any daring man that share the same path. He is a former world champion, rising through the EAW ranks in a short manner, and he wants to reach the top of the holy grail once more. He is easily the most dominant force in a physical standpoint, perhaps in ALL of EAW. But what about tonight? Ladder matches aren’t exactly a strength to men of his size and stature – but then again, it just adds to the potential mayhem and chaos that can be caused. Scott Oasis is overdue for some fortune… is tonight the night he makes his own?

(He runs towards the ropes to charge at his opponents, and all five of them bolted to the outside of the ring, looking at him intensely. He lets out a roar for the crowd and all were enthused, cheering to begin the match as all participants go back in the ring)

( The referee gives the signal — THE MATCH IS… )

Pierre: AND WE’RE OFFICIALLY UNDER WAY! 6 MEN, 1 OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME. THIS MATCH IS ALWAYS THE MOST UNPREDICTABLE COME PAIN FOR PRIDE SEASON. ALL SIX MEN, JUST LIE IN WAIT, NOT WANTING TO MAKE THE FIRST MOVE — SCOUTING UP THEIR OPPONENTS INTENTIONS — WELL THAT DIDN’T LAST! WE’RE OFF! SCOTT OASIS POWERS OUT OF HIS CORNER – WITH LARS GRIER IN SIGHT — SPINNING SIDE WALK SLAM RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE! MEANWHILE, it appears Nico Borg, TLA, and Keelan Cetinich find themselves in the midst of a three-way brawl!

Stew-O: NOT SO FAST! HERE COMES THAT WRECKING BALL AGAIN. SCOTT OASIS! HE HEADBUTTS TLA OUT OF THE WAY, KNOCKING HIM BACK… AND NICO BORG MEETS THE SAME FATE! KEELAN YOU BEST RU — NO! SCOTT PULLS HIM IN… BRAINBUSTAHHHHHHH!!!! Maero has just watched ALL of this unfold, as he stays put in his corner — but Scott Oasis finally looks up and LOCKS eyes! Maero realizing what that means, tries to book it — BUT NO GO! OASIS GETS A GRASP OF HIM… PSYCHO DRIVER! AND JUST… LIKE… THAT! SCOTT OASIS HAS CLEARED HOUSE. WE KNOW THE PHYSICAL PRESENCE MAY HAVE BEEN TOO MUCH TO HANDLE, BUT NOT IN MY WILDEST OF DREAMS DID I THINK IT’D BE THIS APPARENT. Just with LITTLE ounce of effort, after WEEKS, MONTHS even of game-planning – SCOTT OASIS PHYSICAL DOMINANCE AND COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE UN-DID ALL THAT MENTAL WORK OF FIVE MEN.

Pierre: Anytime Scott Oasis competes in an EAW ring, it’s a treat to watch – a rare specimen if EAW has ever seen one. And with all the bodies laid to waste, he turns his attention to the objective of this match — CLIMBING A LADDER. He quickly scoops one up from the outside, sliding it into the ring, ALONG with it he goes — BUT ONLY FOR LARS TO COME OUT SWINGING. AS HE STOMPS AWAY AT OASIS, BUT IT DOESN’T EVEN SEEM TO FAZE HIM! OASIS GETS TO HIS FEET — NO! CHOP BLOCK FROM BEHIND! I GUESS IF THERE’S ONE WAY TO SEND A MAN OF HIS STATURE DOWN, IT’S IN CHEAP MANNER! BUT ANYTHING GOES, ESPECIALLY IN A MATCH OF THIS MARQUEE OF STIPULATIONS. And Lars ISN’T finished with the assault, sending knees to the rib cage, TIME and TIME again. BUT HOLD UP — TLA WANTS TO GET IN ON THE ACTION, AS HE SENDS A BLUSTERING SHOT TO THE KIDNEY, LARS GRIMACES AS HE TURNS AROUND — TLA SWINGS OVER, BOOM! PELE KICK!!! NO! LARS GRIER DODGES THE ONSLAUGHT, RECOGNIZING THE MANEUVER, TLA TURNS AROUND… RIGHT INTO LARS HIMSELF! BAH GAWD, WHAT A PUMPHANDLE NECKBREAKER! TLA IS OUSTED, FOR THE TIME BEING!

Stew-O: BUT HOLD UP, HERE COMES NICO BORG BACK TO JOIN THE FOLD… THE MALTESE FALCON — IS IMMEDIATELY SENT BACK DOWN BY A POWERFUL LARIAT! MY GOODNESS, THIS MAN LARS IS ON FIRE! I KNOW HE HAS BEEN DEEMED AS ONE OF SHOWDOWN’S GREATER PROSPECTS, BUT HE’S BRINGING IT TO EXTRAORDINAIRE TALENT AT THE MOMENT. And THIS rookie has the right of it all – SETTING UP THE LADDER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! HE BEGINS THE CLIMB — NO, HOLD ON! OUR ATTENTION NEEDS TO DIVERT ELSEWHERE — MAERO BACK INTO THE FOLD — TURNS LARS AROUND, HOLY SMOKES, WHAT A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! I THINK LARS’ SKULL EVEN GOT PINNED AGAINST THE STEEL LADDER! BRUTAL LANDING. MAERO RESUMES CONTROL OF THE HIERARCHY — BUT WAIT!!! ONLY TO TURN RIGHT INTO KEELAN! TORNADO DDT, OFF THE DROP OF A HAT! OUT OF NOWHERE! IT SEEMS AS IF KEELAN HAS NO INTENTIONS OF WAITING FOR EVERYONE TO JOIN THE FRAY– AS HE MAKES THE FIRST CLIMB OF THE NIGHT!

Pierre: But HOLD on Stew! NICO! Nico shakes and shakes at the ladder, to the point Keelan can’t even get a grip of the briefcase! THE LADDER IS SWERVING… KEELAN, YOU BEST GET OFF — AS NICO TIPS OVER THE LADDER, AS IT SPRINGS AGAINST THE ROPES! BUT WATCH OUT, KEELAN LANDED ON HIS FEET — A SWIFT JAB TO THE TEMPLE OF NICO BORG! BUT NICO BORG RESPONDS WITH A THUNDEROUS BLOW OF HIS OWN, AND ANOTHER QUICK STRIKE AFTER IT… CRUCIFIX DRIVER!!! ONTO THE STEEL LADDER! THAT SERVES NO PROTECTION! MEANWHILE, TLA has found himself in a sole battle against Scott Oasis – NOBODY wishes to have that fate, as Nico makes a climb! HIS FIRST OF THE NIGHT! Last year’s 24/7 Winner knows what it takes to win on THIS stage, of a ring filled with participants, and he’s SO close to repeating history, just of a different shade! BUT HOLD UP – WHAT’S BREWING HERE? MAERO?

Stew-O: WE KNEW MAERO WAS ONE OF THE MORE MENACING PERSONALITIES TO EVER GRACE AN EAW RING — BUT IN A LADDER MATCH, HE’S BRINGING ALONG A BARBWIRED BASEBALL BAT! LOOKS LIKE HE DIDN’T WANT TO HANDLE SCOTT OASIS’ PHYSICAL NATURE FOR LONG. BUT NICO DOESN’T KNOW WHAT’S COMING, AS MAERO TAKES A HEFTY SWING!!! ONLY TO MEET STEEL, NICO DODGES THE ASSAULT! AGAIN MAERO WITH A SWING, ONLY AGAIN FOR THE ATHLETIC NICO BORG TO SHIFT HIS WAY OUT OF IT! AND INSTEAD KICKING IT OUT OF MAERO’S HANDS, AS IT SLIDES ALL THE WAY TO THE CORNER! MAERO STARTS CLIMBING UP THE LADDER, ON THE SAME TILT OF NICO HIMSELF, BRUSHING OFF ANY KICKS SENT HIS WAY, AND CRAWLS ALL OVER MR. BORG’S BACK, SENDING URGENT ELBOWS TO THE SPINE! Nico is in quite the predicament, as his back is turned towards Maero! MAERO gets parallel with Nico’s body, SENDING A FURIOUS HEADBUTT HIS WAY! BUT NICO FIRES BACK — WITH A HEADBUTT OF HIS OWN — AND HITTING MAERO’S FACE AGAINST A STEP OF THE LADDER! IT’S A LONG WAY DOWN FROM HERE, THAT’S THE EASIEST WAY TO WEAKEN YOURSELF FROM THIS MATCH. THIS ISN’T A GOOD SITUATION FOR ONE OF THESE MEN!

Pierre: WHAT A BLINDSIDING ELBOW FROM MAERO! COMPLETELY CATCHING NICO OFF GUARD! HE ALMOST FELL OFF THE LADDER, EVEN! OH, NO! TROUBLE HAS HEED ITS WAY, SCOTT OASIS STANDS BELOW THEM SURVEYING THE SCENE! THE TWO HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT IS COMING TO THEM! WHAT… WHAT IS HE DOING?! BAH GAWD!!! HE’S NOT EVEN SHAKING THE LADDER – HE’S LIFTING IT! HE’S LIFTING IT OFF THE CANVAS, THE STRENGTH OF THIS MAN… THE ICE MAN, THEY CALL HIM – IS LITERALLY LIFTING THE LADDER OF MORE THAN 400 POUNDS, AND TEETERING IT IN THE AIR! I KNOW EACH OF NICO BORG AND MAERO WEIGH UNDER 200, BUT THIS IS UNPARALLELED STRENGTH BEING WITNESSED RIGHT NOW — BAH GAWD!!! THE LADDER IS BEING TIPPED OVER!!! SCOTT OASIS IN A BACKBODY DROP MOTION — AS NICO AND MAERO CRASH AND BURN TO THE OUTSIDE! BAH GAWD, THE HUMANITY. LET’S GET A REPLAY OF THIS!

( EAW Replay: Scott Oasis lifts the ladder, which Maero and Nico Borg stand upon, up in the air and essentially causes them to crash to the outside. )

Stew-O: This man right here is proving to be the X-FACTOR! He’s a former world champion — walking into Pain For Pride 9 the World Heavyweight Champion — and he wants to make that climb again! BUT LOOK AT THIS — IF HE WANTS TO GET THERE, HE’S GOING TO HAVE TO CUT THROUGH LARS GRIER! WHO IS NO SLOUCH IN PHYSICAL PRESENCE EITHER. THEY STARE ONE ANOTHER DOWN… POWER VERSUS POWER. AND LARS CHARGES AT HIM — ONLY TO BE SENT DOWN WITH A SICKENING CLOTHESLINE! Oasis just LAUGHS him off, eager for him to get up again – Lars follows suit — RUNS AT HIM AGAIN! THIS TIME CONNECTING WITH A CLOTHESLINE OF HIS OWN — BUT WHAT THE HELL? IT DID NOTHING WHATSOEVER. SCOTT OASIS JUST STANDS THERE LIKE A BRICK WALL. LARS POWERS UP AGAIN — ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE — NO EFFECT! YOU CAN JUST SENSE THE ANGER BUILD UP FOR LARS, AS HE SMACKS HIS FIST AGAINST THE CANVAS AND RUNS ONCE MORE!!! SHOULDER BLOCK — NOTHING — BUT HOLD ON, SCOTT OASIS IN ONE MOTION PICKS HIM RIGHT UP — SCOOP POWERSLAM, AIMING FOR THAT LADDR — NO, HOLD ON!!! TLA HAS ENTERED THE FOLD! CUTS SCOTT OASIS DOWN FROM BEHIND, USING THAT BARBWIRED BASEBALL BAT THAT MAERO BROUGHT IN EARLIER! OASIS DROPS LARS BEFORE HE CAN EXECUTE — AND TOGETHER, TLA AND LARS MERGE — SANDWICHED CLOTHESLINE!!! BUT OASIS IS STILL ON HIS FEET, THE TWO IRISH WHIP HIM ACROSS THE RING — ONLY FOR HIM TO BOUNCE BACK — DUAL CLOTHESLINE — NO! DODGED, BUT ONLY FOR LARS TO RUN RIGHT INTO… A DISCUS LARIAT FROM KEELAN! KEELAN TURNS AROUND, AND TLA WHIPS HIM UP A GOOD ‘OL EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!

Pierre: BUT THE PROBLEM REMAINS, SCOTT OASIS IS STANDING. ALL MEN CONVERGE ON HIM AT ONCE. BUT IT ONLY SEEMS LIKE LARS CAN STAY ATTACHED TO HIM, AS HE FIGHTS THEM ALL OFF, AND SENDS A BECKONING BLOW TO LARS WITH A HEADBUTT. BUT HOLD ON, HERE COMES MAERO — WITH A SECOND LADDER INTO THE RING! HE HELICOPTERS IT OVER HIS HEAD!!! SPINS, SPINS, AND SPINS SOME MORE — WRECKING HAVOC ON ANYBODY WHO DARE STAY ON THEIR FEET! THIS MIGHT BE THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY YET TO DOWN OASIS – BUT TLA DUCKS OUT OF THE CARNAGE — AND HIS A BACK-HEEL KICK TO THE LEG OF MAERO! MAERO STOPS IN HIS TRACKS, SEEMINGLY DIZZY FROM THE SPINS AS WELL – AND TLA MARCHES RIGHT AFTER HIM! ONLY TO BE HIT IN THE STERNUM WITH THE LADDER, AND MAERO DOUBLES DOWN, HITS HIM AGAIN! Maero drops the ladder once and for all, and pins it against the turnbuckle! This man always has devious intentions – BUT LOOK, TLA fights back — sending a forearm smash to the temple of Maero! MAERO IS DAZED ONCE MORE — AS TLA SENDS HIM INTO THE CORNER WITH THE LADDER! WITH MAERO’S BACK SITTING AGAINST STEEL, TLA GRABS THE OTHER LADDER, AND CHARGES WITH IT!!! NO, MAERO ESCAPES THE CHAOS, TLA DROPS THE STEEL(E), TURNS… THE MAERO TRANSPLANT!!! RUNNING KNEE LIFT!!! BAH GAWD, MAERO HAS SEIZED CONTROL.

Stew-O: BUT NICO BORG WISHES TO CHANGE THAT FORTUNE — NO! HE’S MET WITH THE SAME FATE! THE MAERO TRANSPLANT! FOR SOMEBODY THAT WASN’T CONSIDERED A FAVORITE IN SOME CIRCLES, HE’S ABSOLUTELY TAKING IT TO THE COMPETITION. HE SHOULD HAVE ALWAYS BEEN CONSIDERED THE MOST DANGEROUS DARK HORSE — AND HE’S WELL ON HIS WAY TO BECOMING MR. CITV! AND HE SENSES THE BIGGEST THREAT – AS OASIS IS UP ON ONE KNEE… HE MEASURES HIM UP… AND CHARGES!!! THE MAERO TRANSPLANT… FOR A THIRD… YES!!! THIRD TIME! NO! SCOTT OASIS BLOCKED HIS MOMENTUM! THIS CAN’T BE GOOD! HE HAS A HOLD OF MAERO!

Pierre: BUT BAH GAWD!!!! THE RAVENBEAK!!! THE RAVENBEAK!!! THE RAVENBEAK!!! THAT DEADLY SPEAR OUT OF NOWHERE, FINALLY SENDING SCOTT OASIS TO THE CANVAS ONCE AGAIN! LARS JUST SAVED MAERO FROM A WORLD OF HURT, I’D SAY! And won’t you look at this – LARS is suggesting a partnership for the time being! AS MAERO AGREES – AND LOCKS IN THE MALPRACTISE, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE TRIANGLE CHOKE ON THE DOWNED ICE MAN! MEANWHILE LARS SENDS KICKS AND CHEAPSHOTS TO THE KIDNEY OF SCOTT OASIS, AS HE’S CAUGHT IN NO MAN’S LAND! HE’S STRUGGLING, BUT MAERO HAS THE HOLD PERFECTLY EXECUTED! HE’S SUCKING THE LIFE OUT OF SCOTT OASIS HIMSELF! SCOTT OASIS IS LITERALLY GASPING FOR AIR, HE’S FADING… AND I THINK MAERO FINALLY HAD ENOUGH OF OASIS TOSSING EVERYBODY AROUND! HE BREAKS THE HOLD, BUT OASIS SEEMS RATHER LIFELESS! BUT IT’S NOT OVER! NOW LARS LOCKS IN A HOLD OF HIS OWN — THE GARGA CROSS FACE — LARS PERSONALLY CALLS THIS THE PICK THE BONES! AND HE’S PICKING AT SCOTT OASIS ALRIGHT, OF WHATEVER REMAINS OF HIS SUBSTANCE IN THIS MATCH-UP. THERE IS NO SENSE OF LIFE IN THE BRUTE BEAST OF A MAN, FINALLY THIS PAIR HAS BROKEN HIM. BUT WHAT’S THIS???

Stew-O: I THINK THAT’S MAERO WITH EVEN WORSE INTENTIONS NOW! HE BRINGS IN A STEEL CHAIR — THIS ISN’T SPELLING WELL FOR OASIS! BAH GAWD, THEY’RE PUTTING IT AROUND HIS NECK — AND MAERO IS CLIMBING TO THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE, NOT THIS… NO, WHATEVER THIS IS… NO NO NO… BAH GAWD!!!! CLEAR!!! THE DIVING MOON STOMP, AS I THINK OASIS IS COUGHING UP BLOOD! AND WHO WOULDN’T, AFTER STEEL PINNED AGAINST YOUR NECK AT SUCH A FORCE OF MOMENTUM?! WE SERIOUSLY NEED SOME E.M.Ts out here, AND OUT HERE FAST! OASIS ISN’T COMPETING IN THIS ONE THE REST OF THE WAY, NO WAY. MAERO AND LARS OFFICIALLY ELIMINATED HIM FROM CONTENTION, AND THESE TWO WERE THOUGHT TO BE THE “THROW-IN”‘S OF THIS MATCH. BAH GAWD, THE CARNAGE WE JUST WITNESSED.

Pierre: BUT THE MATCH DOESN’T STOP — BANG!!! LARS WITH A SPEAR OUT OF NOWHERE TO MAERO. THAT PARTNERSHIP ENDED ABRUPTLY. MAERO ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, BUT WATCH OUT LARS — KEELAN! LIKE A SNAKE IN THE STRANDS OF GRASS — KILLER-KO!!! KILLER-KO! THAT JUMPING CUTTER JUST GAVE KEELAN THE OPENING HE’S BEEN LONGING FOR IN THIS MATCH. NOW ALL OF NICO, LARS, AND MAERO ARE GROUPED UP IN THE OUTSIDE, AS THE EMTs are in the process of putting Scott on a stretcher… BUT KEELAN HAS HIS LOCKED-IN LOCK. THE THREE MEN GET TO THEIR FEET — BAH GAWD!!! SUICIDE DIVE! SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE, COLLECTING ALL MEN, INCLUDING HIMSELF! KEELAN FINALLY MADE HIS PRESENCE KNOWN IN THIS CASH IN THE VAULT ENCOUNTER… BUT HOLD ON, SPEAKING OF GUYS NEEDING TO LEAVE THEIR MARK, WE HAVEN’T HEARD MUCH OF TLA’S NAME YET… AND HE’S ALL ALONE IN THE RING! COME ON, CLIMB THAT LADDER, NO BETTER OPPORTUNITY THAN THIS RIGHT NOW!

Stew-O: I BELIEVE TLA HAS OTHER INTENTIONS, PIERRE – HE’D RATHER IMPLEMENT THE ONGOING CHAOS, I FEEL – AS INSTEAD OF CLIMBING UP THE LADDER, HE CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE, AND SET HIS COLLISION COURSE FOR THE OUTSIDE! ALL FOUR MEN GET TO THEIR FEET… BAH GAWD!!! TLA LEAPS — BURNOUT!!!!! BURNOUT!!!! AND NO, HE DID NOT CRASH AND BURN – BUT RATHER JUST EXECUTED AN AMAZING CORKSCREW 360 SENTON THAT HAS THIS CROWD NUTS! JUST LISTEN TO THEM, PIERRE! THEY’RE ON THEIR FEET, TLA IS A MAD MAN IN WAYS MORE THAN ONE, BUT HE AIMED FOR IT AND HIT. WE MOST DEFINITELY NEED TO SEE A REPLAY TO THIS!

( EAW Replay: TLA LEAPS OFF THE TURNBUCKLE, CORKSCREWING IN THE AIR, DOWN TO ALL OF NICO BORG, MAERO, KEELAN CETINICH AND LARS GRIER. )

Pierre: EVERY MAN IS DOWN. EVERY MAN IS OUT. THIS IS LITERALLY ANYBODY’S BALL GAME, AND WE HAVEN’T EVEN REALLY SEEN MUCH LADDER WARFARE, EITHER. ALL IT TAKES IS ONE AMBITIOUS CLIMB, AND THE REST IS HISTORY. WHICH OF THESE MAN WILL CAPITALIZE ON THIS OPPORTUNITY? IT’S LITERALLY BEEN A MINUTE SINCE EVEN A LIMB WAS MOVED, I’M STARTING TO QUESTION HOW MUCH MORE THESE MEN CAN TAKE!

Stew-O: No… YOU CAN’T BE… YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS!

Pierre: WHAT? …BUT HOW? HOW IS HE MOVING? SCOTT OASIS IS LIMBERING OFF THE PARAMEDIC TABLE, REFUSING TO BE STRETCHERED OUT OF HERE! HE FALLS TO HIS HANDS AND KNEES OUTSIDE THE RING, BUT HE SEES A CLEAR PATH! ALL IT TAKES IS THIS ONE OPPORTUNE MOMENT! THIS MAN JUST HAS NO QUIT… HE CLIMBS TO THE APRON, MUSTERING EVERY OUNCE OF STRENGTH IN HIS BODY TO EVEN MOVE… BAH GAWD!!!! BAH GAWD!!! THE RAVENBEAK!!!!! THE RAVENBEAK!!!! THE RAVENBEAK SPEAR FROM LARS GRIER!!! SCOTT OASIS JUST GOT SPEARED OFF THE APRON, AS HE CRASHES DOWN TO THE UNFORGIVING CONCRETE AGAIN! PLEASE TAKE HIM OUT OF HERE BEFORE ANY FURTHER DAMAGE IS DONE! LARS GIVES HIM A LASTING SMIRK, BEFORE FINALLY TURNING HIS ATTENTION TOWARDS… A FLEEING NICO BORG!!! NICO IS CLIMBING THE LADDER, NOBODY ELSE IN THE RING WITH HIM, LARS MUST HURRY! NICO WAS TRYING TO PULL A QUICK ONE ON EVERYONE INVOLVED, AS LARS CLIMBS UP THE OTHER SIDE IN A HURRY, BUT NICO IS CLUTCHING AND GRABBING FOR THE BRIEFCASE! HE HAS IT IN HIS HAN — NO, LARS KNOCKS IT AWAY, AND THROWS A HAMMERHEAD OF A PUNCH RIGHT TO NICO’S TEMPLE! NICO STOPS HIS CONQUEST – AS LARS REIGNS HIM IN… HE HOOKS IT!!! HE HOOKS THE GARGA CROSSFACE ONTO THE TOP OF THE LADDER!!! NO! NICO FIGHTS HIS WAY OUT OF IT, AND TURNS THE TABLES… BUT KEEPS THE ARM LOCKED… BAH GAWD, BAH GAWD… THE LAST RITES!!! THE LAST RITES!!! OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER!!!

Pierre: THE LADDER PLOWS INTO THE CANVAS FROM THE COLLISION, BUT NICO IS SATISFIED WITH THE END RESULT ALL THE SAME, AS LARS LAYS THERE WITHOUT MOTION. NICO HAS GRASPED THE REIGNS OF CONTROL OUT FROM LARS FINGERTIPS — AND SETS THE LADDER UP ONE MORE TIME. HE IS ALL ALONE, THE CONTINUOUS CARNAGE HAS BODIES RESTING WHEN THEY SHOULD BE REACTING TO THE SIGHT WE SEE, NICO INCHES AWAY FROM THE BRIEFCASE! ALL HE HAS TO DO IS MAKE THE CLIMB… BUT HOLD ON, SPOKE TOO SOON – AS MAERO MAKES HIS WAY BACK INTO THE THICK OF THINGS! MAERO GRABS THE 2ND LADDER, AND SMASHES NICO ACROSS THE TEMPLE WITH IT! BAH GAWD, THAT BUSTED NICO OPEN, AS HE IS SQUIRMING AGAINST THE CANVAS, TRYING TO COLLECT HIS VISION AND THOUGHTS! I WOULDN’T DOUBT IF MAERO GAVE MR. BORG A CONCUSSION — BUT HOLD ON, MAERO TURN AROUND!!! TOO LATE — TLA DOES IT FOR HIM — PELE KICK!!! THE SECOND OF THIS MATCH — AS TLA SIMPLY KICKS HIM TO THE ROPES… HERE WE GO! THE INFAMOUS 305!!! TLA SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES — SPRINGBOARD DDT! MAERO DOESN’T KNOW WHAT JUST HIT HIM! BUT TLA IS FAR FROM DONE… AS HE SETS HIM UP — YES!! THE DEVASTATING MEXICAN DESTROYER! BAH GAWD, MAERO LEAVES THE RING, IT’S ALL TLA! THIS IS YOUR CHANCE, SON. YOU’VE BEEN SO CLOSE, SO MANY TIMES! MAKE THAT CLIMB!

Stew-O: MAKE THAT CLIMB, BRING THIS HOME FOR DYNASTY! BRING THIS HOME FOR THE ENTIRE CLAN! FINISHING RUNNER-UP TO THE PIZZA BOY AT THE GRAND RAMPAGE, FINALLY WITH THE STARS ALIGNING… TLA HAS MADE HIS WAY TO THE TOP OF THE LADDER! BAH GAWD, THIS IS IT, THIS IS WHAT MAKES ALL THAT ADVERSITY WORTH IT! TLA SNATCHES AND GRABS AT THE BRIEFCASE, AND HE HAS CLUTCHED IT IN HIS HANDS!!! A TIME WORTH REJOICING, A SIGNATURE MOMENT… YOU CAN FINALLY SAY — NO! WHO IS THIS?!? WHAT IS MADISON KALINE DOING HERE, SOMEBODY GET KEELAN’S DOG OUT OF THIS RING! SHE TRIES SHAKING THE LADDER, BUT TO NO AVAIL! BUT TLA WOULD RATHER UNHITCH THE BRIEFCASE THAN QUARREL WITH HER! HE’S ALMOST THERE, BUT IT’S JUST NOT COOPERATING! MADISON ALTERS THE PLAN — GRABS THAT BARBWIRE BASEBALL BAT FROM LONG AGO — AND SMASHES IT RIGHT AGAINST TLA’S SPINE!!! GOOD GOD, AND DOES SO… AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! UNTIL FINALLY HE GIVES UP THE QUEST AND SITS UPON THE TOP OF THE LADDER! BAH GAWD, MADISON KALINE JUST KEPT TLA FROM BECOMING MR. CITV! AND NOW SHE’S HELPING KEELAN TO HIS FEET – AND EASING HIM UP THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LADDER! NOT THIS WAY! KEELAN IS SLOWLY INCHING HIS WAY UP, AND HE MIGHT BE IN THE MOST OPPORTUNISTIC OF CIRCUMSTANCES RIGHT NOW!

Pierre: BUT HOLD ON — HERE COMES… LARS!!! BAH GAWD, ANOTHER RAVENBEAK, THIS TIME TO MADISON KALINE!!! JUSTICE HAS BEEN SERVED, AS IT IS RAVENBEAK-MANIA DOWN HERE TONIGHT! HOW MANY IS THAT?? EITHER WAY, DOESN’T MATTER – AS LARS SENDS A FEW SWIFT SHOTS TO THE BACK OF KEELAN, BUT HE’S NOT BUDGING! HE’S HANGING ON FOR DEAR LIFE, WHILE TLA IS STILL MOTIONLESS ON THE TOP! BAH GAWD, THIS IS ANYBODY’S TO WIN RIGHT NOW. BUT IT’S KEELAN AND TLA THAT ARE UP IN THE AIR! LOOKS LIKE LARS HAS GIVEN UP ON PUNISHING KEELAN FURTHER… HE HAS OTHER IDEAS!! HE SETS UP THE 2ND LADDER RIGHT NEXT TO THE ONE KEELAN AND TLA ARE STANDING ON! KEELAN HAS FINALLY MADE HIS WAY TO THE TOP, BUT HE’S STILL GRASPING FOR AIR! BUT LARS SWIFTLY MAKES HIS WAY UP HIS OWN LADDER, AND BEGINS TO GRAB FOR THE BRIEFCASE! WHAT A SPECTACLE THIS IS, TWO LADDERS THAT ARE PARALLEL TO ONE ANOTHER, LITERALLY IN DAB, CENTER OF THE RING. LARS HAS CLUTCHED THE BRIEFCASE IN HIS HAND, AS KEELAN TRIES TO PAW AT HIM, BUT HE JUST DOESN’T HAVE IT IN HIM! BUT HOLD ON, HOLD ON!!! MAERO HAS REJOINED THE FRAY! AND HE BEGINS AN ONSLAUGHT ASSAULT ON THE OHIO NATIVE, AS LARS HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO REVERT HIS ATTENTION BACK TO EXCHANGING FIST-A-CUPS!

Stew-O: THIS IS LITERAL MADNESS! FOUR MEN ON TWO LADDERS, ALL WITHIN AN ARM’S REACH AWAY FROM THE CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE! LARS AND MAERO CONTINUE TO EXCHANGE BLOWS ON TOP OF THE LADDER – AND NOW TLA REALIZES KEELAN IS SET ACROSS FROM HIM, AND SMASHES THE VOLTAGE ELITIST’S FACE AGAINST THE TOP OF THE LADDER! BAH GAWD, THIS IS JUST INSANE! EACH MAN IS IN A FIST FIGHT WITH THE MAN ACROSS FROM THEM, WHILE THERE ARE TWO MORE BODIES TO THE SIDE! LARS STARTS BASHING MAERO’S FACE AGAINST THE TOP STEP, ONLY FOR MAERO TO RETURN THE FAVOR BY PUSHING LARS RIGHT INTO HIS SIDE COUNTERPART — TLA! ALMOST TIPPING OVER THE LADDER THAT TLA AND KEELAN STAND UPON! AND NOW THEY FIRE BACK — TLA EXCHANGES PUNCHES WITH LARS, AND KEELAN EXCHANGES PUNCHES WITH MAERO! SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE, EVERYONE, THEY CAN’T KEEP GOING ON LIKE THIS! TLA SENDS AN ELBOW SHOT TO THE FACE OF LARS GRIER — AND TRIES PULLING HIM IN, BUT LARS IS TRYING TO HOLD ON FOR DEAR LIFE! AND KEELAN IS PULLED IN BY MAERO!!! BAH GAWD, THEY’RE TRYING TO PUSH OFF ONE ANOTHER, BUT THEY’RE ONLY MAKING EACH LADDER WOBBLY! THIS ISN’T GOOD – ALL FOUR MEN ARE DESTINED TO FALL! THE LADDERS HAVE MET THEIR TIPPING POINT, AS MAERO HAS TO RELEASE HIS HOLD TO KEEP HIS BALANCE — BAH GAWD!!!

Pierre: KEELAN PUSHES MAERO AWAY WITH HIS FOOT AGILITY, AND NO, NO NO NO!!!! THAT LADDER IS TIPPING OVER, BAH GAWD, THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO – THEY’RE IN NO MAN’S LAND — AS LARS GRIER AND MAERO COME TO THE INEVITABLE FATE OF CRASHING AND BURNING, BAH GAWD! NOW ONLY ONE LADDER REMAINS! AS TLA AND KEELAN JUST LOOK AT ONE ANOTHER, BOTH TRYING TO CLUTCH THE BRIEFCASE, ONLY TO COME TO THE QUICK REALIZATION THAT THE OTHER MAN NEEDS ELIMINATED FIRST! IT’S LITERALLY COMING DOWN TO THIS, WHO CAN BEST WHO – AS TLA SMACKS KEELAN’S FACE AGAINST THE BRIEFCASE, AS IT SWAYS IN THE AIR! TLA TRIES TO CLUTCH FOR IT, BUT KEELAN CATCHES HIM IN THE EYE! TLA PULLS AWAY, ONLY FOR KEELAN TO SEND A FOREARM SMASH TO HIS JAW! THAT KNOCKED TLA OFF HIS ALIGNMENT — AS HE’S SWAYING IN THE AIR, AND KEELAN IS TRYING TO JUST PUSH HIM OFF! KEELAN GRABS THE BRIEFCASE, WHILE HOLDING DOWN TLA’S HEAD WITH HIS KNEES! BAH GAWD, KEELAN HAS IT WITHIN HIS GRASP! KEELAN HAS IT WITHIN HIS GRASP! TLA IS TRYING WITH ALL HIS MIGHT TO POWER OUT OF IT, BUT KEELAN’S BODY WEIGHT LOCKING TLA AGAINST THE STEEL. I CAN’T BELIEVE IT, KEELAN CETINICH, THE MAN WHO MANY DOUBTED, IS THIS CLOSE TO UNHINGING THE BRIEFCASE AND PROCLAIMING HIMSELF MR. CITV!!! HE HAS IT, HE HAS IT!!! NO!!! TLA WITH ONE FINAL PUSH! AS HE SWAYS THE LADDER AWAY FROM THE CENTER, AND KEELAN HAS TO HOLD ON! BUT IN DOING SO, HE LIFTS UP FROM TLA, AND BAH GAWD, TLA HAS HIM!!! TLA HAS HIM!!!! TLA LIFTS HIM UP OVER HIS SHOULDERS, AND THROWS HIM OFF!!! KEELAN HAS BEEN TRUMPED. NO! HOLD ON, HE’S STILL TRYING TO HANG ON FROM THE OTHERSIDE OF THE LADDER! HIS LEG IS CAUGHT UPSIDE DOWN, BASICALLY IN A TREE OF WOE POSITION! THIS ISN’T GOOD, HE CAN TRY TO GRAB WITH ALL HIS MIGHT, BUT HE’S STUCK THERE! HE’S STUCK! GREEN LIGHT!

Stew-O: GREEN LIGHT FOR TLA! FOR THE SECOND TIME! COME ON THIS OPPORTUNITY IS YOURS! HE LOOKS DOWN AT KEELAN, AND SEES HE’S HOPELESS, THIS IS THE MOMENT YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR! WAIT, HOLD ON FOLKS! NICO BORG!!!

Pierre: WHAM! BAM! NICO BORG!!!! RUNNING UP THE INVERTED 2ND LADDER – WITH A HEAD OF STEAM, TOWARDS TLA… DISCUS LARIAT!!! DISCUS LARIAT!!! BAH GAWD, HE COMPLETELY BLINDSIDED TLA!!! TLA FALLS TO THE CANVAS WITHOUT EVER KNOWING WHAT WAS COMING FOR HIM!!! IS THIS IT?!? IS THIS IT? IS THIS NICO BORG’S CROWNING MOMENT?? NICO BORG IS ALL ALONE… NICO HAS NO CHALLENGERS UNDER HIM… NICO BORG HAS IT… YES HE DOES!!! NICO UNHOOKS THE BRIEFCASE ONCE AND FOR ALL, HE HAS IT! WOW, JUST LIKE THAT!!!… NICO BORG IS YOUR 2017 CASH IN THE VAULT WINNER!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( Nico Borg celebrates on top of the ladder, screaming on the top of his lungs in celebration as “You Want It Darker” echoes throughout Met-Life Stadium, as the crowd gives Nico a well-mixed reaction, recognizing the mayhem they just witnessed. )

Stew-O: WOW! I STILL can’t believe it – NICO BORG COMES OUT OF NOWHERE, AND CLUTCHES THE BRIEFCASE, AND THE CASH IN THE VAULT VICTORY AWAY FROM TLA’S GRASP! TLA WAS THIS CLOSE, SO CLOSE TO FINALLY GETTING HIS SIGNATURE WIN! TWICE, he had the briefcase in hand, TWICE only a few mere seconds away from coming away with the briefcase, BUT IT’S NOT TO BE! WOW, that has to be heart breaking, BUT CONGRATULATIONS TO NICO BORG… You can’t say he DOESN’T deserve to be here. He’s now won BOTH his Pain For Pride prizes, in the end at least, and TWICE has come away with a contract that binds him to a title shot! But there is just simply more esteem and prestige behind that briefcase. WELL DONE, Nico

Pierre: WHAT A MATCH. I honestly can’t believe what just transpired before our very eyes, it was surreal to have all six men come so close to the valor of victory. Any of these men you could have made an argument for, but it is NICO that has the briefcase in his hands! Just look at the sheer joy, parading himself with it as the likes of Lars Grier, TLA, Keelan Cetinich, and Maero finally have reality set in that this over. That all they’ve worked for the past month has come to a bitter result, but NO man should keep their head down after this one. It was anybody’s ball game, and just the luck of circumstance was on Nico Borg’s side this lonesome night. We couldn’t have asked for a better group of competitors.

Stew-O: And if my memory serves me, Pierre – Nico Borg successfully cashed in his 24/7 Contract from last year to capture the National Elite Championship from The Pizza Boy. He already has experience on these stipulations, as I wouldn’t put it past him to be well set on winning a world championship in the near future now! He has just become the most feared man among the elite… the rise of Nico Borg is here, and everyone best keep their eyes on this young man.

Pierre: Don’t forget, Lioncross walked out of Pain For Pride 9 as Mr. CITV – And never made it to the dance, or a championship opportunity. Lannister took it from him, and anything can happen in the Land of Elite. But regardless how it all pans out – TONIGHT is YOUR night Nico, CONGRATULATIONS ON THIS VICTORY.

( Camera catches one last sight of Nico Borg celebrating with the briefcase, before finally fading to the back… )

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

Max: What a show it has been, ladies and gentlemen! We’ve seen new Champions crowned and Legends return! My guest at this time is one who happens to be both Champion AND Legend. He’s the reigning EAW Champion, Drastik!

(Camera pans to the left to Drastik dressed a t-shirt and his ring gear, holding the EAW Championship on his right shoulder)

Max: Thank you for joining me, Drastik, it’s great to have you.

Drastik: I agree, it’s great to have me. Were you gonna ask me about Tiberius?

Max: Well, yeah, I–

Drastik: Don’t. I don’t want to talk about Tiberius IV. I don’t want to talk about Tiberius I, Tiberius II, or Tiberius III, because even only a year from now, nobody’s gonna remember that “lineage”. Nobody’s going to think about a King that fell flat on his face the moment he got off his throne. Let’s just let tonight be about me, shall we? Let’s just–

???: Well, well, well…

(Drake Jaeger – wearing a black suit with black sunglasses on enters view of the camera – smirking at Drastik)

Drake: We meet at last.

(Max looks on as Drastik stares down with Drake. Drastik squints at Drake)

Drastik: Who are you again? You don’t look familiar.

(Drake stands silent for a few seconds before bursting into loud, fake laughter, startling Max)

Drake: I always heard you were a funny guy, and you live up to your reputation! I’m sure you know who I am. Let’s get serious here, shall we?

Drastik: Yeah… I think I do recognize you… The facial hair, the clothes, the perm…

Drake: It’s not a perm.

Drastik: Wait, I know you… John Doe, right?

(Drake grows visibly annoyed)

Drake: Who? Shut up! You know exactly who I am! I’m the second in command of King Tiberius IV’s King’s Guard!

(A confused Drastik looks at Max before looking back at Drake)

Drastik: Are you sure you’re in the King’s Guard?

Drake: Of course I’m sure! TJ is my boy!

Drastik: Well, I’ve never heard of you. Don’t know you. Don’t care. I’m gonna go now.

Drake: No, no, no – you’re not about to make a fool out of me! See, you may not know me, or so you claim… But I know you quite well. That’s right, I’ve done my homework. You’re Drastik, one of the most controversial men in EAW History. Formerly known as the Rated R Shaman of Sexy. I can’t say I blame you for changing names. Your entire time in this company has been shrouded in controversy, hasn’t it? And now you intend to do it again when you steal the match against my good friend Tiberius, isn’t that right?

Drastik: Steal the match?

Drake: Oh yeah! You were definitely gonna stir up some controversy tonight, but you guess what.

(Drake pulls out handgun as a shocked Max looks from behind)

Drake: I beat you to it!

Max: Drake, what are you doing?! You can’t–

(Drake points the gun at Max)

Drake: Shut up! This is the Drake Jaeger Show now! Don’t look at me like I’m crazy, this is perfectly ordinary for EAW! Pain For Pride 1! Cuck U. Fena has Chainstein shot during their match! Nobody bats an eye! Every Pain For Pride has had controversy! Pain For Pride 2! Robbie V takes a literal fireball to the face! Banks screws over Mak in the headliner! Pain For Pride 3! Some asshole headlines and wins! Pain For Pride 4!… Well, nothing controversial happened at Pain For Pride 4 to the best of my memory… I don’t remember if anything controversial happened at Pain For Pride 5, but nobody remembers that show in general! Pain For Pride 6–

Drastik: Oh my God, wrap it up! Get on with it! I’ve got a match tonight, and I don’t feel like wasting my time with more of Tiberius’ lackeys. Shoot Max and let’s get this over with.

Max: What?! Why me?!

Drake: He’s right, if I were gonna shoot anyone, it would be you, Max, but how crazy do you think I am, guy? This isn’t a real gun.

(Drake tosses the fake gun over his shoulder)

Drake: Look, the point is, you’re absolutely full of shit, and if you think you’re gonna pull some kind of a stunt and screw over TJ, you’ve got another thing coming, because I’m BACK!

Drastik: I think if anyone is pulling anything out there, it’ll be Tiberius, but you know what? I’m not too worried about that. You’re right, I’ve always been controversial. I’ve done every trick in the book, and you know what that means? I’ll be ready for anything he tries to pull tonight. I’m glad you’re back, because you’re gonna be all your precious King has left after tonight.

Drake: Ha! Funny! You know, I hope once TJ beats your ass and takes your Title that you end up on Showdown with me, because nothing would please me more than to finish you off myself.

Drastik: Showdown?

(Drake pulls a contract out of his pocket)

Drake: That’s right! My old deal expired, so I just signed a new one today. I’m a member of the Showdown roster now, so you better start praying to whatever God you believe in or whatever celebrity you admire the most if you’re an atheist that you don’t end up on Showdown with me.

Drastik: Let me see that.

Drake: Read it and weep.

(Drake grins as he hands Drastik the contract. Drastik looks it over)

Drake: I’m surprised your jaw hasn’t dropped to the floor yet with how much they’re paying me. One MILLION, baby! Haha!

Drastik: Yeah, one million… yen.

Drake: They offered it to me in yen since they know how big of a fan I am of Japan, I can’t blame them.

Drastik: And you’ve been to Japan?

Drake: Yup.

Drastik: And you used their currency?

Drake: Of course not, I had people to buy shit for me while I was there. I don’t speak Japanese, idiot, how else was that gonna work out?

Drastik: Yeah, this is like… 9 thousand dollars.

Drake: Huh?

Drastik: And yeah, you’re on Showdown… On commentary.

Drake: Come again?

(Drake rips the contract from Drastik’s hands, frantically reading it over)

Drake: This can’t be right! Commentator?! I’m not sitting next to Pierre McGuire! No way in Hell!

Drastik: Looks like you don’t have a choice. That’s your signature, right?

Drake: Screw this! I’ll eat the contract! Let’s see how valid it is then!

Drastik: And you don’t think they have copies?

Drake: Damn it! Damn it to Hell! This changes nothing! I’m still kicking your ass!

Drastik: Sorry, I don’t wrestle commentators. By the way, I think Tiberius thinks you’re dead. Don’t worry though, he’ll be joining you soon enough.

(Drastik pats Jaeger on the shoulder takes his leave as Drake continues reading over the contract)

Drake: This can’t be right! THIS IS BULLSHIT! THIS–

(Drake stops himself)

Drake: Well I guess I shouldn’t wear out my voice if I’m going to be the greatest Goddamn commentator this company has ever seen. Max, where’s catering?

(Drake looks around, realizing Max is gone)

Drake: Max? Max? Max! Max, get back here! I swear to God, I’ll get a real gun! Max!

(Drake storms off out of view as the camera transitions back to the ring)

(A video recap of the feud between Mr. DEDEDE and Jacob Senn plays… )

(Highlights: Jacob Senn is announced as the first inductee into the 2017 EAW Hall of Fame and decides that the person to induct him would be the EAW Interwire Champion Mr. DEDEDE! Being met with denial and disrespect from Mr. DEDEDE, this would lead Jacob Senn to interfere in the match at Resurrection V between Mr. DEDEDE and Robbie V! Mr. DEDEDE would respond to this by costing Jacob Senn his match against Moongoose McQueen to decide the number one contender to the EAW Interwire Championship! After defending his championship against Moongoose McQueen on the following Dynasty, Jacob Senn would escalate things by assaulting the legend. This would lead to the introduction of the Equalizer put to use on Mr. DEDEDE, costing him a couple of weeks of action, until the two finally met one last time in the middle of the ring to end in a brawl.)

( Camera cuts back to Metlife Stadium, giving a panoramic view of the crowd as the ring announcer takes their place in the center of the ring. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Ring Announcer: This next contest is set for one fall… and it is for the EAW INTEEEEEERWIREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOONSHIP!!!!

(The arena begins to darken as a dark red hue of light takes hold of the arena with “For the sinful world” by Eternal Melody” fills the arena with an eerie tune of violins. Suddenly, we see smoke begin to fill the arena as the background of the stage.)

The grave cannot hold me…

(Finally, the song begins to pick up when we see a barrage of lights flash all around the arena as four men with Punisher masks and suits walk towards the ring with a coffin.)

I am the angel of death…

(The song starts to slow down and fade out once the men place the coffin down in the center of the ring, two kneeling in the front as the other two stand behind them, signalling for pillars of smoke to billow up before them.)

DIE!… DIE!… DIE!…

(“S.O.A.R.” by Devour The Day finally erupts from the speakers as the smoke dissipates to reveal a coffin with the Punisher logo on it for when the song picks up, the coffin door is forced open with a kick through it as we see Jacob Senn dressed as the Overwatch character, Reaper! Donning the signature skull mask and wielding a twin pair of shotguns, he turns around to reveal a white Punisher logo on the cloak he wears before turning around and using the shotguns for his taunt to lead to a massive amount of fireworks to follow before he tosses the shotguns to his side and walks down the ramp.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger… he is from Chicago, Illinois… weighing in at 218 pounds… “Indestructible”… “The Punisher”… JAACCCOOOOBBBBB SEENNNNNNNNNNN!!!

Stew-O: The time has come and Jacob Senn has brought an interesting style and flair to his entrance here tonight, looking forward to bringing the best fight that he can, as he has to in a match that he has personally considered the most important match in this entire history of EAW from his perspective!

Jake Mercer: Do you not agree with him? This is a battle of two generations of this company, colliding to see who will be the one to come out on top with the EAW Interwire Championship hanging in the balance, and I’m sure that one of my favorite stars in the modern era will be able to bring a fight like we’ve never seen him do before!

(Jacob Senn climbs up the steps and enters into the ring, holding the signature barn owl mask of his Reaper attire, when he removes it and the hood off of his head to reveal his face to the world. He continues to remove the gear to reveal a black attire with the white logos all over it, as he slinks into his corner, as the music dies down with the adrenaline pumping through his veins. He cracks a confident smile as he stands in the ring in front of more than 80,000 fans.)

Stew-O: Today Jacob Senn, who celebrates only his 30th birthday after such a storied career already behind him, stands at the base of the highest mountain he or any other man in this industry may ever hope to scale! Jacob Senn, in the prime of his ENTIRE LIFE, IS READY FOR THE MATCH OF HIS LIFE!

( “Feedback” by Kanye West hits as smoke billows up to the stage… Mr. DEDEDE rushes through the billowing smoke, eating up the excitement and electricity of the Pain for Pride X atmosphere. )

( Mr. DEDEDE comes out donning his signature tights but this time stitched with the acronyms “MGTOW”, “HOH”, “BBB” down one leg of his tights and on the other leg it shows a version of the Hamasa hand doing a corna taunt. He wears an ‘Onnit’ Swirl LS Compression Rashguard, and he wears the EAW Interwire Championship around his waist. )

Ring Announcer: AND HIS OPPONENT… RESIDING IN A HIDDEN HILLS/CALABASAS VILLA, WEIGHING IN AT 230 POOOOOOOUNNDSS…. HE IS THE REIGNING, DEFENDING, EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNN…. “THE GAWD”, MMMMMMISTEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRR DEEEEEEEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

( DDD stops at the center of the ramp. The LED ramp and stage turn a deep glow of red as the color rushes to the blue LED Nazar amulet symbol underneath his feet. The heat-activated color changing fabric of his attire turns the swirl design on the front of his rashguard from silver to red, and he throws up the double corna taunt which brings massive pyro up from the top of Metlife Stadium into the evening sky. Fireworks go off above the stadium, and DEDEDE marvels up at the sky before continuing to the ring. )

Stew-O: ENTERING HIS 10TH PAIN FOR PRIDE, AND HIS 4TH CONSECUTIVE/5TH OVERALL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH AT THIS HISTORIC EVENT! THE HALL OF FAMER, AND WITHOUT A DOUBT ONE OF THE GREATEST WRESTLERS TO EVER STEP FOOT IN A RING IN THE HISTORY OF THIS SPORT! I’ve called so many of his most brutal, some of his most gut wrenching, and some of his most dazzling performances of his career-

Jake Mercer: And you may be about to call the toughest of them all! There’s no doubt Mr. DEDEDE has what every wrestler in this industry could want, but Jacob Senn has been the ONLY one willing to step up to the plate and meet DEDEDE on the stage where he performs best!

( DDD continues his entrance, finally in the ring, and once he steps down from taunting on the top turnbuckle to the fans he turns around and stands face to face with Jacob Senn. DDD removes the belt from his waist and holds it up to the audience while leaning over the ropes. The lights return normal, and DDD hands his belt to the official as “Feedback” dies down. )

( The mic’d up official goes over the ground rules between both men, warning that he won’t hesitate to call a DQ or Count Out if necessary. The official holds up the Interwire Championship to the crowd, and he passes the title over to a stagehand who brings it to the time keeper. After this, the official calls for the bell. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Stew-O: One of the most anticipated matches on this entire Pain for Pride card is now underway between two of the greatest talents that the world has ever seen! Mr. DEDEDE defends his Interwire Championship in his 10th Pain for Pride appearance against “The Fabled Conqueror”, Jacob Senn! These two figurative GIANTS stare down, and Jacob Senn especially comes face to face with adversity, unafraid!

( Jacob Senn and Mr. DEDEDE, after circling the ring, come into a collar and elbow grapple. )

Jake Mercer: Well Senn, you could argue, has reached the same heights DEDEDE has in his past! He’s been the face of Dynasty, he’s had a historic World Heavyweight Title reign, he’s been the “Champion of Federations”, and as of yesterday he’s now an EAW Hall of Famer! DDD now has the newest edition into the Hall of Fame in a headlock, backing him into the turnbuckle with a tight grip around the head of his opponent. Senn pushes his foot off the middle turnbuckle to get momentum, taking both he and DDD out of the corner although the two take their momentum across the ropes and DDD now has Senn backed into the ropes with the headlock still applies. Senn fights his way out of the hold by snatching the wrist… and he fights his way away from the ropes and breaks DDD’s grip around his head to apply a wrist lock behind the back. DDD does his best to break out of the wrist lock using his other hand, but Senn hits a stomp to the back of the knee! DDD sends back a left elbow to the chest! Senn still has the rear wristlock applied, but DDD managers to turn his body enough — only for Senn to yank him into a doubled over position and hit a KICK TO THE CHEST! Senn re-wrenches the arm and yanks DDD in now to hit a FLOATOVER DDT! BUT DDD SPINS BEHIND SENN, EVADING THE FRONT FACELOCK AND STACKS SENN UP TO HIS SHOULDERS!

Stew-O: Not even a one count as Senn frantically kicks out just as the referee slides down to the mat. Senn jumps back up, and DDD’s caught Senn with a side headlock again! Senn tries hammering a couple of timely elbows to the side this time, creating space and separating their bodies, and Senn delivers with a big forearm shot to the jaw! But DDD comes right back with a LOUD European uppercut! Senn turns around, and DDD hooks the arms for the crucifix backslide pin! But Senn turns his body around after being hoisted off of his feet and Senn manages to slip his arms out in time …. AND GETS HIM WITH A REAR NAKED CHOKE! REAR NAKED CHOKE ALONG WITH THE BODY SCISSORS, USING HIS LEGS TO CREATE A VICE AROUND THE RIBS OF THE CHAMP! DDD does his best to keep his footing, in a move like that once you lose your balance the entire match is put in peril! DDD drags himself and his opponent across the ring, and runs Senn spine first into the turnbuckle! This breaks the vice around his ribs, the official gets in between and tries to create some space and DDD hits a BIG TIME ELBOW TO THE FACE! DDD FOLLOWS UP WITH A ROLLING FOREARM! AND DDD GOES FOR A SPINNING BACKFIST! Senn ducks underneath that one, and jumps right on DDD’s back again for the rear naked choke! But DDD charges out of the corner, snapmares Senn down to his bottom, sprints across the ring and rebounds off the ropes looking for a FEROCIOUS PENALTY KICK!!!

Jake Mercer: Nobody home! Senn combat rolls out of that one, and there’s an ONCOMING CLOTHESLINE FROM DEDEDE! SENN DUCKS UNDERNEATH! He chases DDD who’s running towards the ropes following the momentum of that clothesline, and he shoves DDD from behind into the ropes and hits a clubbing forearm to the spine! That sends DDD staggering into the ropes, just for Senn to apply yet another rear wristlock, wrenching the arm and trying to bring it back behind DDD’s back! DDD does his best to fight the contortion of the arm; look at this! He arches his back bringing himself down to the mat, forcing Senn to get down to a knee, and DDD turns – twists and shoulder rolls in an attempt to escape, and lifts a KICK TO THE FACE! DDD rises back up to his feet, and rushes at Senn for the right hand! But Senn catches him with a forearm! DDD fires back with a forearm of his own! And Senn this time hits a STIFF closed fist! So much snap behind the punches of Jacob Senn! Now Senn snatches the rear wristlock yet again — but DDD cartwheels down to the ground in attempt of escaping the hold! Senn however cartwheel shoulder rolls to the ground with him simultaneously in the same formation, hits a forearm to the back of the head with his free arm, and presses DDD to the canvas with the arm still trapped behind the back! DDD’s trying all he can to push himself back up, AND NOW SENN HANDSTANDS ON DDD’S ARM WITH HIS ARM PRESSED TO HIS BACK…. AND HITS A HANDSTAND KNEE DROP TO THE RIGHT ARM OF THE CHAMPION!!! A beautiful display! That forces a yell out of the Interwire Champion, and now Senn yanks DDD by the arm to turn him over to his back, and hits a stomp to the right pectoral! Senn drags DDD up by the right arm, and looks to put more torque on the wrist lock by wrenching the arm and re-wrenching it! But DDD fires back with a mule kick to the quadriceps! That evokes a yell from Senn this time, and DDD with another mule kick! This frees him from the arm submission and DDD runs to the ropes in front of him to hit a RUNNING BACK ELBOW TO THE FACE OF SENN!

Stew-O: SENN COUNTERS THE ONCOMING LEFT ELBOW BY GOING FOR AN ARM-TRAP NECKBREAKER! BUT INSTEAD OF THE NECKBREAKER HE BACKFLIPS AND LANDS ON DDD’S SHOULDERS, LOOKING FOR A STUNNING BACKFLIP FROM BEHIND INTO THE HURRICANRANA! GOT IT!!!! NO! DDD CATCHES HIMSELF WITH ONE ARM ON THE WAY DOWN AND HANDSPRINGS BACK TO HIS FEET! BUT BY THE TIME DDD RECOVERS, SENN’S SPRINGBOARDED OFF THE MIDDLE ROPES TO HIT THE PHENOMENON DDT!!!! SPRINGBOARD INVERTED DDT!!! AND HOOK OF THE LEG!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO-

Jake Mercer: DEDEDE GRABS A HOLD OF THE BOTTOM ROPE SHORTLY AFTER THE “ONE”! DEDEDE pulls himself to the apron and out of the ring following that incredible move! You can tell Senn is kicking himself a little bit after that one, he hit that Phenomenon DDT with amazing quickness and precision but he completely forgot about ring placement and DEDEDE used that to his advantage! Now Senn invites DDD back into the ring, while DDD’s at ringside rubbing the back of his head, looking up at Senn a little surprised. DDD steps back onto the apron and slowly re-enters the ring, circling the ring with Jacob Senn again but noticeably rubbing the back of his head… and the two of them close in, looking for a collar & elbow yet again! WAIT A SEC, SENN DOES A BODY-SCISSORS FRONT FACELOCK, AND ROLLS BACKWARDS DRAGGING HIS OPPONENT DOWN AND BRINGING DDD TO HIS BACK, ONLY TO SNAP IN A SOCKET-CRUSHING ARMBAR TO THE RIGHT ARM! AND SENN GOES EVEN FURTHER, YANKING AT THE WRIST AND YANKING BACK A PAIR OF FINGERS, INITIATING SMALL JOINT MANIPULATION! DDD CRIES OUT IN PAIN, AS SENN IS LEAVING NOTHING LEFT, AND THE OFFICIAL COUNTS UP TO FOUR TO GET SENN TO EASE UP ON THAT!

Stew-O: Small joint manipulation is something considered to be taboo in most combat sports, albeit not something that is necessarily outlawed in EAW. Most likely the official would have opted to break up the submission forcibly if Senn refused to comply to the five count, however Senn is still wrenching at that right arm as much as he can, even bending and contorting the wrist of Mr. DEDEDE! DEDEDE’s doing his best to battle back to a standing base, but the more DEDEDE struggles, the more Senn contorts the arm! He wants to rip it right out of it’s socket! DDD’s on both knees, still mustering up enough to fight out of the submissive body position that he’s in… he’s up to one knee! And Senn hits a stomp to the midsection, and a BRUTAL knee to the side of the mouth! Senn pulls DDD in now…. HE MAY BE LOOKING FOR THE JACOB’S LADDER!!!! HE MIGHT HAVE THE STYLES CLASH ALREADY!!!! BUT DDD USES EVERY FIBER IN HIS BEING TO FIGHT IT, IT’S A STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM… NOW DDD BACKS INTO THE ROPES AND SENDS SENN SOARING OVER RINGSIDE, ALMOST DOUBLE FLIPPING AND WIPING OUT CHEST FIRST ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!!

Jake Mercer: JEEZ, WHAT A FALL! SENN IS CRAWLING AROUND RINGSIDE WITH HIS BODY COMPLETELY RACKED WITH PAIN! DDD backs up to the ropes on the far side of the ring, and Senn does all he can to pull himself back up to his feet… AND DDD COMES CHARGING ACROSS THE RING!!!! “VINTAGE” DEDEDE!!!! CORKSCREW TOPE CON HILO TO THE OUTSIDE, TAKING SENN BACK DOWN!!!!

Stew-O: A dizzying display from the Interwire Champion, and it was as entertaining as it was effective! DEDEDE rolls back into the ring while Senn’s laid out in front of us, and he orders the referee to count! An unexpected tactic; considering DEDEDE’s taken Pain for Pride matches to the limit before, you wouldn’t expect him to want to settle for a count out win, but he might just get one!

Jake Mercer: I think it’s cowardice! How on Earth could you settle for a count out on this kind of stage!?

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

Jake Mercer: Senn’s done his due diligence of forcing himself back up to his feet after having the wind damn near knocked out of him. Senn is hovering over the apron and climbing onto it to return to the ring as the referee reaches the “eight” count… but DDD yanks the middle rope and pulls it back as much as he can… AND RELEASES, CAUSING THE MIDDLE ROPE TO SNAP BACK AND CLOCK JACOB SENN RIGHT IN HIS WINDPIPE! UGH GOD THAT COULD HAVE DONE SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE! Senn falls back down to the ringside on his feet, gasping for air, and now DDD rolls underneath the bottom rope to grab Senn by the back of his head and run him face first into the barricade! He turns Senn around, and unleashes some heavy body shots to any open part of the torso he can find! Senn swipes right, DDD ducks that, and hits a flurry of body shots to the torso! Now DDD brings Senn back over near the Voltage announce desk… and DEDEDE HOOKS SENN’S ARM OVER HIS SHOULDER PERHAPS LOOKING FOR A SUPLEX ONTO THE ANNOUNCE DESK! BUT SENN RAKES THE EYES OF THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION! DDD turns around temporarily blinded, and Senn hooks DDD from behind to hit a BACK SUPLEX INTO THE HOOD OF THAT ANNOUNCE DESK! SENN DROPPED HIM ON HIS RIGHT SIDE! DDD sits up holding his arm in sharp pain, and Senn holds DDD from behind to take him across ringside just to DRIVE HIM STERNUM FIRST INTO THE RING POST! The official starts back up his count! DDD clutches that right arm and stumbles away from the post, but Senn follows up by grabbing DDD by the right arm and HITTING AN EXPLODER SUPLEX, SPENDING DDD SPINE FIRST INTO THE RING APRON!!!! THAT LEAVES DDD SLUMPED BACK ON THE APRON, AND SENN PUSHES HIM INTO THE RING AND DRAGS HIMSELF BACK IN AS WELL! Senn follows up with the cover!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOO-

Stew-O: DEDEDE POPS THE SHOULDER UP! Senn didn’t get DDD on his weak side, which he seems to regret, because now Senn shifts sides and goes for the cover pressing his weight on DDD’s significantly weaker right half of the body!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOO-

Jake Mercer: Same result, DDD had too much time to recover, he kicks out yet again. When you talk about Mr. DEDEDE you’re talking about someone who’s endured more punishment than perhaps anyone else in EAW history, someone who’s resilience knows little to no bounds! Jacob Senn hits several precise stomps to the body, making it difficult for DDD to recover. DDD is back on all fours, but Senn hits a RIB CRUSHING PUNT KICK INTO THE RIBS, KICKING DDD ACROSS THE RING! DDD sits up holding his rib cage, prompting Senn to charge back over to DDD and hit a SLIDING LOW FOREARM!!! BUT DDD EVASIVELY DODGES THAT, RUSHES BACK UP, AND GOES FOR A ROLLING BIG BOOT! SENN SIDE STEPS IT, AND BLASTS HIM WITH A PICTURE PERFECT DROPKICK!!! ANOTHER COVER!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOO-

Jake Mercer: DDD shoots the shoulder up! DDD’s trying his best to create space, desperately clawing over to the corner…. But that’s probably not a safe place for DDD to be, because Senn follows up hitting a flurry of furious stomps into the corner with DDD desperately trying to defend himself against each blow! Senn backs away far across the ring at the other side… and comes CHARGING BACK, AND NAILS HIM WITH A HESITATION DROPKICK INTO THE CORNER!!!! THOSE BOOTS WERE DRIVEN DIRECTLY INTO HIS FACE, I’M SURPRISED IT DIDN’T SKIN HIS WHOLE FACE OFF! DDD rolls underneath the bottom turnbuckle, laying right next to the ring post in a world of hurt, and it looks like the wheels are turning in Senn’s head! Senn rolls under the ropes to the outside, and climbs up the steel steps directly behind the ring post Mr. DEDEDE’s laid by.. AND SENN DRAGS BOTH ENDS OF DDD’S BODY OUT OF THE RING WHILE THE RING POST IS WEDGED BETWEEN DDD’S SPINE AND SENN’S BODY! NOW JACOB SENN TAKES A SEAT ON THE STEEL STEPS AND REELS DDD’S HEAD BACK WITH A CORNER-EQUIPPED SURFBOARD DRAGON SLEEPER!!!!! SENN IS PRACTICALLY FOLDING DEDEDE’S BODY AROUND THE BOTTOM OF THE RING POST AND NEARLY SNAPPING HIM IN HALF!!! DDD HAS NO FORM OF ESCAPE LEFT!!! GENIUS!!! OH MY GOD THAT IS BRILLIANT, HE HAS NOWHERE TO GO!

Stew-O: MORE LIKE HEINOUS!!!! THE HUMAN BODY IS NOT MEANT TO BEND THAT WAY, NOT EVEN IN THE SLIGHTEST, BUT JACOB SENN IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO RIP DEDEDE APART LIMB FROM LIMB! THE OFFICIAL IS DEMANDING THAT SENN RELEASE THE UNIQUE CORNER VERSION OF THE GRIM MEMENTO, BUT SENN ISN’T LISTENING TO A DAMN WORD HE SAYS! DDD, IN ONE OF THE MORE RARE OCCASIONS OF HIS CAREER, HAS BEEN RENDERED COMPLETELY HELPLESS, THIS HAS GOT TO BE TORTUROUS FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION! NOW THE OFFICIAL, AFTER HAVING HIS DEMANDS IGNORED, IS INCLINED TO INTERVENE!

Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Jake Mercer: Senn FINALLY releases the Grim Memento after the official has to force him to do so! DEDEDE rolls away somewhat in relief, I don’t think he’s ever experienced this level of pain before! Jacob Senn has done everything in his power in this match to literally rip Mr. DEDEDE apart! DDD has crawled over to the apron, and is using the ropes to pull himself back up while sitting on the ring apron… but as DDD leans over the middle rope, SENN IS BACK IN THE RING, RUNNING TOWARDS DDD’S WAY AND HITS A TIGER FEINT KICK …… CONVERTED INTO THE REVERSE HURRICANRANA, SENDING DDD OFF THE APRON AND CRASHING DOWN TO RINGSIDE, FACE PLANTING THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!! WHAT A GODDAMN INCREDIBLE MOVE!!!! BUT SENN ISN’T DONE YET, SENN DASHES BACK INTO THE RING, RUNS THE ROPES, SPRINTS BACK TO RINGSIDE WHERE DDD IS SOMEHOW ALREADY RECOVERING………. AND HE SOOOOOARS OVER THE RING ROPES!!!!! THERE IT IS!!!!! FOSBURY FLOP TAKING DEDEDE BACK DOWN!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: OHOHOHHHH MY GOD!!! REMARKABLE! JACOB SENN HAS ENTERED INTO ANOTHER REALM OF GREATNESS, HE’S IN A ZONE IN WHICH VERY FEW OTHER HUMAN BEING WALKING THIS PLANET HAVE EVER DWELLED!!!! THIS IS THE PINNACLE OF WRESTLING PERFORMANCE, AT THE PINNACLE OF THE WRESTLING WORLD!!! SENN PULLS DDD UP AND ROLLS HIM INTO THE RING, RE-ENTERS IT HIMSELF AND THROWS UP THE X TO THE SELLOUT CROWD HERE IN EAST RUTHERFORD, NEW JERSEY!!!! MR. DEDEDE IS DOING HIS BEST TO RECOVER, BUT HE HAS ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE WHAT’S COMING NEXT! ……. ANNNND……. DDD’S UP!!! DDD TURNS AROUND!!! KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, WEAPON X!!!!!! NO, DDD CATCHES THE BOOT, SPINS HIM AROUND WITH THE BOOT, AND HITS A SPINNING BACKFIST TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!!!! SENN FALLS FORWARD, BUT DDD SNATCHES THE ARM AND YANKS HIM BACK — INTO A BRUTAL BICYCLE KNEE TO THE FACE! AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A CRESCENT KNEE! THAT’S KNOCKED SENN FOR A LOOP, SENDING HIM STAGGERING ACROSS THE RING, INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! Senn is now slumped over on the middle turnbuckle, trying his best to recover as quickly as he can and DDD collapses down to one knee, reeling from that unbelievable offense he just took only moments ago… AND A FIRE ERUPTS IN DDD’S COLD BLUE EYES, AS HE LOOKS UP TO HIS OPPONENT, SHOOTS TO HIS FEET AND SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING AT LIGHTNING SPEED! RRRRRRRAPTUUUUUUUUURE!!!!! HELLUVA KICK RIGHT ON THE BUTTON!!! IT WAS LIKE HE GLIDED ACROSS THE RING FOR THAT ONE! NOW HE TAKES A STEP BACK, DOES THE ‘COME HITHER’ MOTION TO A COMPLETELY OUT OF IT SENN, AND TAKES HIM BY THE WRIST TO THE CENTER OF THE RING… AND NAILS THE EGO DEATH DRIVER!!! NO, SENN LANDS ON HIS FEET TO COUNTER THE MICHINOKU DRIVER — BUT FROM BEHIND DDD HITS THE TRIPLE D DRIVER! REVERSE SIT OUT MAT SLAM! AND DDD FLOATS OVER, DEADLIFTS SENN UP FROM THE MAT, BUT BEFORE SENN LEAVES HIS BACK HE SENDS DESPERATE SHOTS INTO THE WEAKENED RIGHT ARM! SENN GOING FOR A BODY-SCISSORS ROLL-THROUGH, PERHAPS LOOKING FOR THE SMALL PACKAGE PIN… BUT DDD FOLLOWS THROUGH BACK TO HIS FEET AND DEADLIFTS SENN FROM THE GROUND TO HIT A RING RATTLING DEADLIFT EGO DEATH DRIVER!!!!!! THE BACK OF SENN’S SKULL JUST DRIVEN MERCILESSLY INTO THE MAT YET AGAIN! HOW THE HELL DID HE FIND THE STRENGTH!?!? A HOOK OF ONE LEG FROM THE GAWD!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Jake Mercer: KICK OUT BY SENN!!! I’ll admit, the fact that DEDEDE can come back with such emphatic offense after some of these moves Senn managed to deliver is mindblowing!

( Replays of the last sequence of events air. Return back to the ring. )

Stew-O: DEDEDE’s certainly come out of the last few minutes of this match worse for wear, but it’s going to take a lot more to vanquish that fighting spirit! DDD and Senn are recovering, for the most part, at the same rate. DDD’s actually taking a bit of his time, doing his best to regain feeling in his arm; Senn is now actually up to his feet first, and going for a right hand! But DDD blocks that and snaps hits a shot of his own! Senn comes firing back with a right of his own! DDD with a gruesome chop to the chest! And another! And a third, bringing Senn backed into the ropes, and DDD comes after him, but Senn nails him with a spin kick to the midsection! Senn stumbles over to another corner, and DDD shakes off the pain of that loud kick by coming after Senn — BUT SENN CATCHES DDD AND GOES FOR AN EXPLODER SUPLEX INTO THE CORNER!!! NOT A CHANCE, DDD FIRES OFF WITH A CHOP, SENDING A PRESSURE POINT SHOT TO THE NECK! SENN LOSES ALL EQUILIBRIUM AND COLLAPSES ONTO DDD’S SHOULDER, AND DDD TRADES PLACES AND SENDS SENN FACE FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE WITH A REVERSE STO!!! DDD drags Senn by the legs away from the corner, applies a kneeling modified leglock and YANKS SENN BY THE HAIR TO PULL HIM UP TO A VERTICAL KNEELING BASE….. AND DDD REARS BACK….. NECK CRANK ON SENN FROM BEHIND, THERE IT IS!!!!! THE METH LOCK!!!!!!! VERTICAL MUTA LOCK APPLIED!!!! THIS SUBMISSION MOVE HAS PUT SO MANY PEOPLE AWAY IN THE PAST, AND SENN MAY VERY WELL BE ANOTHER ADDITION ON THAT LIST!!!!

Jake Mercer: YOU HAVE TO GET OUT OF THAT SENN! THE LONGER THE METH LOCK IS APPLIED, THE MORE DEADLY IT BECOMES! SENN IS LOSING CONSCIOUSNESS BY THE SECOND, RAPIDLY SHOWING LESS AND LESS MOBILITY! DDD SCREAMING OUT “COME ON” AS EVERY VEIN IN HIS HEAD POPS OUT AND HE PUTS EVERYTHING HE’S GOT INTO THAT DEATH VICE! BUT SUBMISSIONS CAN BE DRAINING, THE MORE YOU PUT INTO THEM THE MORE IT TAKES OUT OF YOU, AND DDD’S PUTTING EVERYTHING INTO THIS METH LOCK AND IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE SENN IS FADING FAST ENOUGH!

Stew-O: DDD OPTS OUT OF THE METH LOCK, LETTING GO, AND NAILING A WICKED ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! THE ENTIRE CROWD COULD HEAR THAT SMACK AGAINST THE BACK OF SENN’S SKULL! Senn drops right on his face, almost lifelessly! DDD stands up and looks down at Senn who’s holding the back of his head in shock, and DDD brings down a fist drop to the spine! Now an elbow drop to the spine! Double axe handle! And several stomps to the back as well! Senn tries crawling away, but DDD hits a jumping elbow drop to the sore back of Senn yet again! Senn letting out a cry of pain, crawling aimlessly to find some sort of escape, and now DDD runs the ropes parallel to Senn and hits a jumping knee drop to the spine! He turns back to Senn, DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE SPINE! HE TURNS AROUND, STANDING SENTON INTO SENN’S SPINE! DDD SHOOTS BACK UP, TURNS AROUND YET AGAIN, AND HITS A STANDING NORTH STAR TO THE SPINE!!!!!!! BEAUTIFUL STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS, AND A HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Jake Mercer: BUT JACOB SENN MANAGES A KICK OUT SOMEHOW! Senn rolls away, clutching at his spine, but DDD gets up as quickly as he can and drags Senn back in front of the turnbuckle… now DEDEDE steps onto the apron and makes the climb all the way to the top! This epic showdown may be approaching it’s end, Mr. DEDEDE’s wasting zero time! HE’S ALREADY NEAR THE TOP!!! BUT JACOB SENN, PERHAPS IN DESPERATION, RUSHES UP TO HIS FEET! AND SENN HITS A RUNNING SHOT TO THE KIDNEY! DDD loses some height after a last gasp effort from Jacob Senn. After collapsing to a knee and holding the small of his back, Senn hits another right hand to the face before dropping back down to a knee yet again! After some room for reprieve, Senn comes right back up to the turnbuckle and climbing to the middle rope, and THE TWO ENGAGE IN A HIGH INTENSITY EXCHANGE OF FOREARMS UP AT THE TOP ROPE, SENDING BOMBS IN SUCCESSION!!! THESE TWO PRIME LEGENDS OF THIS INDUSTRY DUKING IT OUT… AND DDD CATCHES SENN WITH A HEART PUNCH! THAT STUNS HIM! AND A HEADBUTT FROM DDD KNOCKS SENN BACK DOWN TO THE MAT! Senn rolls around looking like his back has been broken! DDD leans forward, wiping away a trickle of blood from a cut above his eye, and DDD tries his best to get back up to a standing base at the top… BUT JACOB SHOOTS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND HITS A STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI, KNOCKING THE TASTE OUT OF DEDEDE’S MOUTH!!! DDD’S STILL HANGING ON, AND SENN RUSHES BACK UP IN A SURGE OF WHAT SHOULD BE CHALKED UP TO ADRENALINE, TO HIT THAT PATENTED PELE KICK!!!! SENN DROPS BACK TO THE MAT HOLDING HIS BACK WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN AGGRAVATED EVEN MORE AFTER THAT, BUT THAT KICK ALSO SENDS DDD COLLAPSING FROM THE TOP ROPE ONTO THE APRON! DDD BARELY CATCHES HIS FALL TO RINGSIDE BY CLUTCHING ON THE TOP ROPE! That land could have been a lot worse, but DDD still has some wherewithal to avoid crashing down to ringside! Now Senn psyches himself back up and rushes back at Mr. DEDEDE with a RUNNING FOREARM! Senn collapses, and DDD is inches from collapsing down to ringside! Now Senn rushes back up again, RUNS the ropes, AND FIRES BACK WITH ANOTHER HEINOUS SHOT!!! Blood comes flying out of DDD’s mouth and lands on the ringside floor after that one, yet he still manages to hang on! Senn gets up yet again, runs the ropes one more time, GOING FOR A LEAPING SUPERMAN FOREARM!!!!

Stew-O: BANG!!!!!! DEDEDE SLINGSHOTS THROUGH THE ROPES FROM THE APRON AND CONNECTS A SLINGSHOT SPEAR!!!!!!!! HE CAUGHT HIM IN MIDAIR!!!!!!! THE COVER AND THE HOOK OF THE LEGS!!!!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRRRRRR-

Jake Mercer: SENN KICKS OUT!!!! SENN SURVIVES!!!! DEDEDE SLAPS HIS HAND ON THE MAT OUT OF FRUSTRATION, HE HIT SENN AS HARD AS HE COULD WITH THAT SLINGSHOT SPEAR, BUT IT JUST WASN’T ENOUGH! NOT ON THIS NIGHT! NOT ON THIS SHOW!

Stew-O: And you can see his facial expression showing his unbridled rage! DDD SCOWLING, PULLING AT HIS HAIR, DRAGS HIMSELF TO THE CORNER LIKE A POSSESSED MADMAN, AND HE MUTTERS TO HIMSELF IN THE CORNER WITH HIS EYES WIDE OPEN… BEFORE TURNING HIS HEAD BACK TO SENN’S DIRECTION! AND DDD CROUCHES AT THE CORNER, BEGGING SENN TO GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET WITH HIS WAKE UP TAUNT! HE’S SALIVATING, WAITING, CLAWING AT HIS FACE AND MUSTERING EVERY BIG OF MOMENTUM HE CAN AS SENN STRUGGLES TO RETURN TO HIS FEET….. A MOMENT THAT FEELS LIKE AN ETERNITY PASSES, SENN IS BACK UP, HE TURNS AROUND!!!!! ………. AND DEDEDE CHARGES OUT OF THE GATE, SPEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!

Jake Mercer: SENN LEAPS OVER DEDEDE AND RIDES DDD’S BACK TO THE FLOOR, COMPLETELY AVOIDING THE MOMENTUM OF THE SPEAR!!!!! NO WAY!! HE’S CONVERTING IT INTO THE JACOB’S LADDER!!!!! HE’S POWWWWWWWERING DEDEDE UP FROM THE MAT!!!! INTO THE JACOB’S LADDER!!!!!!!!! HE NAILS THE STYLES CLASH!!!!!! JESUS CHRIST!!!! THIS IS IT!!! SENN ROLLS OVER, STACKING HIM ONTO THE SHOULDERS FOR THE PIN!!!! THIS IS OVER!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Stew-O: SENN ROLLS HIMSELF OUT OF HIS OWN PIN AND CHARGES TO THE ROPES NEARBY AS DDD IS DOWN AT ALL FOURS!!!!!!! SHADOW STEP!!!!! GOT HIM!!!!!! A VICIOUS CURB STOMP, IMPALING DDD’S FACE INTO THE MAT!!!!!! AND HE DESPERATELY ROLLS DDD OVER AND DROPS AN ARM OVER HIS OPPONENT!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

Jake Mercer: SHOULDER UP!!! HOW THE HELL!!!! HOW IN THE WORLD!?!? A BEWILDERED JACOB SENN HOLDS HIS HEAD AND ROLLS OVER IN AWE, MOUTH AGAPE, STARING AT HIS OPPONENT LIKE HE ISN’T HUMAN! AND MAYBE THAT’S THE CASE, MAYBE SENN IS IN THE RING WITH A ‘GAWD’, BUT JACOB SENN HAS COME SO FAR FOR ONE REASON, AND THAT’S TO TURN THE WHOLE WORLD INTO NON-BELIEVERS! Senn drags himself back up, nearly sapped of energy, not even able to keep a straight posture… he still can’t explain what the hell just happened, but now’s not the time to try and contemplate, now’s the time to capitalize! Senn drags himself over to where DDD lays and pulls his dead weight up…. Senn wants DDD up straight, but DDD collapses to his knees and is leaned over Senns waist looking completely a dazed…. and SENN WAKES HIM UP WITH A LOUD SLAP TO THE FACE! DDD’s entire face is glowing red, and he musters himself up to a knee just for Senn to hit ANOTHER HARDER, LOUDER SLAP ACROSS THE FACE! AND DDD, SNARLING, JUMPS UP AND HITS A HEADBUTT, CRACKING HIS SKULL AGAINST JACOB SENNS! Senn stands spaghetti legged, and DDD wipes his forehead using the sleeve of his rashguard, and hits a HAYMAKER TO THE JAW OF SENN! BUT SENN BATTLES BACK IN A FLURRY, HITTING TWO STIFF PUNCHES, A SHOOT KICK, SPINNING BACKFIST, AND COMPLETING THE SECOND CITY COMBINATION WITH A LARIAT! NO!!!!! DDD CATCHES THE ARM LOOKING FOR AN ARM TRAP NECKBREAKER, BUT INSTEAD OF HITTING A NECKBREAKER HE TURNS SENN AROUND! GRAND SLAM!!!!!!!!!! FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!!!!! HOOOOOOOOLY HELL WHAT AN EARTH SHATTERING MOVE! BUT DDD ROLLS AROUND HOLDING HIS RIGHT ARM IN PAIN, HE MAY HAVE WORSENED WHATEVER INJURY THAT MAY ALREADY BE SUSTAINED BY THAT POWERFUL ATTACK! DDD DRAGS HIMSELF DESPERATELY BACK OVER TO SENN, CLAWING HIMSELF ACROSS THE CANVAS AND FINALLY GETTING A HOOK OF THE LEG!!!!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Stew-O: ANOTHER KICK OUT FROM JACOB SENN!!! PERHAPS DDD TOOK TOO MUCH TIME, BUT FOR SENN THE EXTRA SECONDS WERE ALL HE NEEDED! IN A WAR BETWEEN TWO GENERATIONAL MEGASTARS, INCHES MAKE THE DIFFERENCE OF MILES!

Jake Mercer: I’m still baffled by how DDD summoned enough inside of him to deliver a Grand Slam of such magnitude! He very well have injured himself just by the velocity of the move itself! DDD uses the ropes to pull himself back to his feet…. and he and Senn are taking, again, roughly the same amount of time to recuperate! But DDD beats Senn on his race to recovery thanks to the aid of the ring ropes, and now he stands over Senn yet again and crouches down.. PERHAPS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER GRAND SLAM! IF DEDEDE CAN HIT YET ANOTHER GRAND SLAM, YOU CAN STICK A FORK IN THIS MATCH! Senn, racked with more pain and fatigue than ever before manages to reach a knee… and DDD PULLS SENN UP TO BOTH TWO AND REELS HIM IN!!!! GRAND SLAM, FROM THE LEFT SIDE THIS TIME! NO, SENN WITH YET ANOTHER RAKE TO THE EYES! SENN DOING WHATEVER HE HAS TO DO TO SUCCEED! THE OFFICIAL CHECKS ON DDD AFTER HAVING HIS EYES NEARLY CLAWED OUT! BUT SENN COMES BACK WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, STUNNER!!!!! WEAPON X!!!!!!! WEAPON X!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: HE DOESN’T GET IT, DDD AT THE LAST SPLIT SECOND SHOVES HIM INTO THE ROPES FROM BEHIND… BUT SENN SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES!! WHAT!?!?!?! SPRINGBOARD CORKSCREW WEAPON X!!!!!!!!!!

Jake Mercer: SENN CATCHES THE REFEREE!!!! DDD FRANTICALLY DRAGS THE REFEREE IN HIS WAY, AND JACOB SENN ACCIDENTLY NAILS THE OFFICIAL WITH THAT DEVASTATING SPRINGBOARD CORKSCREW STUNNER!!!! SENN LOOKS DOWN AT THE OFFICIAL IN SHOCK —

Stew-O: YAKUZA KICK!!!!!! MY GOD WHAT A SHOT!!! A SPIT KNOCKING YAKUZA KICK, TURNING SENN INSIDE OUT AND LANDING ON HIS FACE! SENN WAS TURNED INSIDE OUT BY THAT MERCILESS BLOW! DEDEDE, down on his side, pulls himself up to a seated position still in a world of pain, but he can assess the situation by a quick scope of the ring! He knows the incapacitated official adds a new element to this match, and it may be the one he needs! Mr. DEDEDE slowly drags himself out of the ring….. and he digs flips up the apron, digging underneath the ring …. OH NO!!!! OH GOD NO!!!!! HE’S GOT THE EQUALIZER!!!!!!!

( DEDEDE leans over the apron, sliding the guitar full of thumbtacks, glass shards and nails into the ring, and with a mad look in his eyes he creeps back in the ring and picks up the weapon. )

Jake Mercer: WHAT THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE’S DOING!?!?! THIS MANIAC, THIS PSYCHOTIC BASTARD! HE CAN’T!!!

Stew-O: MR. DEDEDE SEEKS TO EXACT REVENGE FOR WHAT JACOB SENN DID TO HIM SEVERAL WEEKS AGO ON DYNASTY! DDD LOOKING DOWN AT THE LOADED GUITAR LIKE A MAN POSSESSED, AND HE LOOKS BACK AT SENN… WHO HAS NO IDEA WHAT’S ABOUT TO HIT HIM! DDD COCKS BACK THE GUITAR, READYING A FULL STRENGTH SWING!!!!!! JACOB SENN RETURNS TO HIS FEET!!!! BANG!!!!!!!!!! A SHOT FROM THE EQUALIZER SENDING SENN’S HEAD THROUGH THE GUITAR, AS SHARDS OF GLASS, THUMBTACKS AND NAILS POUR TO THE GROUND!!!! MOTHER OF GOD!!!!

Jake Mercer: THAT IS JUST EVIL!

Stew-O: AND AFTER A MOMENT, SENN CRUMPLES DOWN TO HIS KNEES LIKE HIS SOUL JUST LEFT HIS BODY, WHILE DDD HOLDS SENN SLIGHTLY UP USING THE GUITAR…AND HE REMOVES IT, SHOWING SENN’S FACE DRENCHED WITH BLOOD! NOW DDD SLIDES THE EQUALIZER OUT OF THE RING JUST BEFORE WE CAN SPOT A NEW OFFICIAL ON HIS WAY DOWN THE RAMP! NOW DDD REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES! AND HE TORPEDOES DOWN TO A KNEELING JACOB SENN!!! DRILLING THROUGH HIM WITH AN EXECUTION STYLE SPEAR!!!!!!! THE BODY OF JACOB SENN HAS BEEN LEFT CONTORTED!!!!

Jake Mercer: THIS IS TOO MUCH!

Stew-O: MR. DEDEDE DRAGS JACOB SENN NEAR THE TURNBUCKLE AS THE NEW REFEREE SLIDES IN THE RING! AND MR. DEDEDE SPRINGS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, STANDING OVER HIS CHALLENGER! THE UNIVERSE BEARS WITNESS!!!!! CORKSCREW NORTH STAR!!!!!! HITS ITS MARK, THIS ONE IS OVER!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “Feedback” by Kanye West hits as Mr. DEDEDE is handed back his Interwire Championship. )

Ring Announcer: Your winner, and STILL EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIOOOOOOOON!!!! MMMMMMMMMMISTEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRR DEEEEEEEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Stew-O: ANOTHER BREATHTAKING PERFORMANCE FROM STATISTICALLY SPEAKING THE GREATEST PAIN FOR PRIDE PERFORMER OF ALL TIME! WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, THIS MATCH RANKS AMONG ALL OF HIS OTHER CLASSICS!

Jake Mercer: I’m still in shock! I’ll admit, I was rooting for Senn, but I’d be lying if I said this were anything less than a thriller! Everyone expected this match to stand out, but this may have turned out even better than what people had hoped for – which is goddamned hard to do considering it’s a bout between two Hall of Fames with 8 World Championships and 7 Match of the Year awards between them!

( DDD, with the title draped on a shoulder, holds up seven fingers to the crowd before dragging himself out of the ring to celebrate his victory. )

Stew-O: I don’t think the Interwire Championship could have ever looked better around the waists of either of these men, but DEDEDE emerging to an unprecedented SEVENTH Pain for Pride victory – and as you can see there, he’s proud of that fact!

(Recap of the 2017 EAW Hall of Fame Ceremony, featuring inductees Triple Crown Syndicate, RoViper, Scott Oasis, Diamond Cage, Tarah Nova, and Jacob Senn)

( http://i.imgur.com/uU23Ea8.png )

You said you’d never ever break…down…but here I am sweeping pieces off of the ground.

(The titantron shifts around displaying an image of the Women’s World title. As it shifts around it transforms into the Vixen’s Title for a moment as Aria Jaxon lifts it up holding it to the sky as “Fragile” by Tech Nine (Besnine Remix) begins. As the song strums along the video shows the final moments of Aria holding the title as HBG hits the Evisceration.)

You said you’d never ever play…to crowds. But I’ve seen you hoping, to play songs to them now.

(The title changes form, turning back into the Women’s title as Cailin Dillon lifts it into the air having won it from Sheridan, her smile wide and tears in her eyes as she stands triumphant. The scene seems to flicker, displaying her much more aggressive face as she delivers a superkick to the jaw of Alexis Diemos. The image falls away to reveal the sight of Cailin holding her head as her title is raised high by a shadowed figure.)

Fragile (Wish Id’ve known) I never thought I’d be so…fragile (You’re not alone).

(The camera sweeps up to take into view Cameron Ella Ava who raises the newly formed Women’s title, her eyes filled with a god like malice. The images splice in and out, showing her attack on other women in the locker room, and her eventually going face to face with Cailin Dillon and Aria Jaxon.)

(The scene transitions back to the ring as the Ring Announcer takes her position at the center of the ring.)

RA: The following contest is a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH!!! And it is for the EAW Women’s Championship!!!

(The scene moves to the titantron as a new scene begins to take shape. The scene opens in what can be only observed as the Hall of Justice. Seated is what can only be described as a “superman” like figure, except for having the hair and beard of a Norse God and a golden trim cape. He glances up as a shadowed figure steps into focus, carrying a sword and shield, and a whip strapped to her hips.)

???: Why did you summon me?

Superman-God figure: This is something that we think only you can take care of. A false goddess has taken the gold of the gods and wields its power for her own selfish gain.

(He raises his hand as an image flashes of Cameron Ella Ava, wielding the Women’s Title with a smirk on her face.)

Superman-God figure: And adding on to that, we also have a woman pretending to be a queen trying to stake a claim on that gold. And there is only one solution. We need a true warrior to take care of her.

(A second image shoots up displaying Aria Jaxon as she raises her arms in triumph, staring up at Cameron. The shadowed woman who walked in smiles, laughing to herself before turning and drawing her sword, leaping from the screen as the light shoots up, revealing Cailin Dillon. As the titantron backs away, the crowd looks up anxiously as a zipline trails towards the ramp. Triumphant music booms as CAILIN DILLON ziplines down to the ramp, using the shield as a guide until she lands in the middle of the ramp. “New Level” by A$ap Ferg plays as Cailin Dillon looks at the crowd, filled with a mixed reaction. She nods her head to the music, tapping her shield against the ground to the beat before heading to the ring.)

SG1: The former Women’s Champion. Some say an obsessive. Someone who is obsessed with the idea of taking back the Women’s title. She has staked everything on taking that belt back. Nothing is going to hold her back from it. And as she walks to the ring, you can see the determination in her eyes.

Starr: Dressed as Wonder Woman and just as unflinching in battle, Cailin Dillon has never looked more ready for something to happen then right now. It’s almost terrifying to think of just how much power she has. And she is no stranger to these type of situations either. She relishes the idea of a challenge. What makes this all the more horrifying, is the prospect that Cailin does not care at all about how Aria was a former friend, and that Cameron was a former teammate. Cailin just wants to win.

(Cailin slides under the bottom rope, handing the ref her shield as she turns her eyes to the ramp. The camera pans to the titantron as the lights go off around the arena. A few blips appear on the screen before a single red eye opens. As the scene pans out, the red eye is host of two shadowy figures, which look remarkably like Cailin and Cameron. As it sweeps around it transitions, displaying a moon in the background as a gloved hand reached out, clasping hold of a wand like object. Instead of Beyonce, a different instrumental begins to play…until.)

???: Fighting evil by moonlight!

Winning love by Daylight!

Never running from a real fight.

She is the one named Aria!

(The titantron comes alive with the name ARIA JAXON sparkling in and out of existence, the I replaced by a sailor moon inspired wand. As the remixed Sailor Moon theme continues to play, the camera sweeps down to the entrance ramp, where a group of Sailor Soldiers stands ready. At the lead is none other than Beyonce herself, wearing a Tuxedo Mask inspired garb. They each strike a pose before Beyonce pulls the mic close, and the start of “Formation” by Beyonce plays as she begins to sing along.

As the song reaches its crescendo Aria Jaxon herself makes an appearance rushing out from behind Beyonce and striking her signature pose, before switching to Sailor Moon’s classic pre fight taunting pose as the crowd lights up with excitement. She confidently strides down the ramp, nodding her head to the music.)

SG1: WHAT AN ENTRANCE BY THE QUEEN OF THE NEW BREED! ARIA JAXON COMING IN AS ONLY SHE CAN, WITH ENERGY AND HYPE!

Starr: She is the Queen of the New Breed and a former champion in her own right, and right now she is determined. That’s possibly the only thing I can say about her that is certain. She has said before that she is nervous about this matchup. She’s nervous because she knows that there is no certainty in a triple threat. The match can end in an instant. And it doesn’t need to be in the ring. And that has to be weighing heavily on her mind right now.

(Aria slides under the bottom rope, coming to a stand and instantly going nose to nose with Cailin who refuses to back away from her until the ref gets between the two, pushing them both away from each other. As they go to their corners the lights dim and the titantron and it’s decorations light up with starlight. ULTRAnumb (Exterminated Remix) by Blue Stahil plays as the crowd looks up. From the heavens Cameron Ella Ava descends down, her dress like bottom billowing in the wind.

As she descends the stage itself begins to catch with blue and orange flames, growing more intense as she finally lands at the stage, raising her head as she holds the title up high above her head. On closer inspection her attire is that of Queen Nehelenia from Sailor Moon Crystal. She takes a step back, as her servants move forward, lifting her and setting her onto a throne, carrying her down the ramp and towards the ring.)

Starr: If we are going to talk about amazing entrances, I’m not sure any entrance can top that one! Cameron showing why she is considered a goddess here tonight with that!

SG1: Former Hall of Fame Champion. Winner of the Empire Cup. Holder of the Women’s Title. Cameron Ella Ava is regarded as one of the best Women on the roster in recent memory. She has the distinction of being one of the greatest of her generation. She is THE OG of Empire. And tonight she has the chance to prove just that.

(Cameron stands, allowing her servants to take her from her throne and guide her to stand at the apron, and the lights shoot back up, as Aria and Caillin both glower over to her. She strips away the bottom of her attire, revealing her genuine wrestling gear, before stepping into the ring, handing the referee the belt.)

RA: INTRODUCING FIRST, THE CHALLENGERS! FIRST!

FROM LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA! SHE IS THE QUEEN OF THE NEW BREED!!! ARIA!!! JAXON!!!

AND! FROM DALLAS, TEXAS! SHE IS: CAILIN DILLON!!!!

AND!!! FROM LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA!!! SHE IS THE REIGNING WOMEN’S CHAMPION!!! THE GODDESS OF EAW!!! CAMERON!!!! ELLA!!! AVA!!!!

(The three stare at each other from their corners, the referee showing each of them the belt before…)

DING! DING! DING!

Starr: And this match is officially underway. All three women now, getting to the center of the ring as Cameron starts to circle. She wants to keep an eye out at all times, because there is the terrifying chance that she could lose that belt without being pinned at all! Cailin and Aria getting dangerously close to each other and…both stop?

SG1: Cailin and Aria exchanging looks and Cameron seems to realize what is going on. Cameron backing away but thinks better of it and charges forward!!! And now the double team!!! Caillin and Aria both now throwing heavy strikes at the skull of Cameron, staggering her. Cameron fighting out of it, AND SWINGS HER ARM FORWARD!! KNOCK BITCHES OUT, BUT ARIA WITH A MATRIX LIKE DODGE, AND CAILIN FIRES AT CAM WITH AN EYES OF TEXAS!!! CAM DUCKING THE SUPERKICK BUT CAILIN ISN’T STOPPING!! CAILIN PLANTING HER FOOT DOWN AND KNOCKING ARIA DOWN WITH A HARD SHOULDER BLOCK!

Starr: No alliance is going to last with these two. Aria learning that the hard way and now Cailin focusing her attention on Cameron. Cameron though ready for her and delivers a stiff jab to the jaw of Cailin. Cailin responding with a jab of her own. And another! And another! Cailin firing back with rapid fire punches but Cam cutting off the momentum with a european uppercut! Cameron whipping Cailin across the ring, and Cailin coming back, ducks the clothesline by Cameron, BUT GETS DROPPED BY ARIA’S DROPKICK FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!! Aria back in this contest and going right after Cailin, but Cameron turning around and swiftly kicking Aria away from her.

SG1: Cameron has to have eyes everywhere in this kind of environment! Aria scrabbling up to her feet and heading right for Cameron again, but Cameron, lifting her up and sending her crashing to the ground with a hard backbody drop! Cameron following that up with a leaping elbow drop and quickly into the cover!

OOOOOOOOOONNNNEEEE!!!

No dice at that, Aria swiftly kicking out of it there. Aria already trying to get to her feet, but Cameron right on her, wrapping an arm around the throat of Aria and holding her down with a choke! Cameron trying to put as much pressure as she can on Aria’s neck here, and Cam has gotten Aria laying down. Cameron stretching herself out and…LIFTS HER BODY ALL THE WAY UP, DOING A HANDSTAND WHILE HOLDING THIS HEADLOCK IN! CAMERON SHOWING OFF THE AUDIENCE HERE AS…CAILIN DILLON COMES IN WITH A LOW DROPKICK TO THE SKULL OF CAMERON!!!

Starr: Cameron showing off early, and paying the price for it. Cailin coming in to make the save and swiftly going to work on Cam, rapid kicks to the head and running the ropes now, delivering a huge leg drop right to the throat of Cameron! Cailin though, quickly getting back to her feet and looking to the fallen Aria with a smile on her face. Races the ropes again and A SECOND LEG DROP, THIS TIME TO ARIA! Cailin trying to get her energy back here, throwing a heavy handed strike to the base of Aria’s skull before dragging her across the ring by her hair towards the ropes. Cailin getting out of the ring and just dragging Aria’s head across the apron, her face masked with a scowl! Cailin yanking at the hair of Aria and dragging her body across the apron to the turnbuckle post.

SG1: Cailin may want that title, but I think more than anything else she wants to hurt her opponents here tonight. I don’t think she cares about the outcome quite as much as she does on hurting Aria and Cameron. Cailin setting Aria’s head up near that turnbuckle post and now just backing up, admiring her handiwork. Cailin tapping her foot against the ground and EYES OF TEXAS!!! NO!!! ARIA PULLING HER HEAD AWAY AND CAILIN’S HEEL CONNECTING STRAIGHT TO THE TURNBUCKLE POST!!! CAILIN CLUTCHING AT HER FOOT NOW IN AGONY AS ARIA GETS TO HER FEET, TURNING JUST IN TIME TO AVOID A CHARGE BY CAMERON, WHO GOES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE POST!!! CAMERON FALLING OUT OF THE RING ENTIRELY, HOLDING HER SHOULDER IN AGONY AS ARIA IS THE ONLY ONE STANDING IN THE RING!!!

Starr: Not for too much longer! Aria observing the outside before nodding her head, getting the crowd back on her side. Aria charging the ropes, and LEAPS OUT!!! SUICIDE DIVE AND CATCHING CAILIN WITH IT!!! ARIA SPINNING CAILIN AROUND…TORNADO DDT FROM THAT SUICIDE DIVE ON THE OUTSIDE BY ARIA!!!! AND ARIA KIPPING BACK UP TO A RAUCOUS CHEER BY THE CROWD WHO ARE POUNDING THEIR FEET IN EXCITEMENT! THIS MATCH HAS BARELY BEGUN AND ALREADY LOOK AT THESE MOMENTS!

SG1: This is all for the Women’s title! Aria still a bit staggered and now moving towards Cameron, who is still holding her shoulder in pain here. Aria grabbing Cam by that injured side, dragging her up to her feet and throwing her back into the ring. Aria sliding in herself and hooking onto the arm of Cameron, and spinning along her back! FUJIWARA ARMBAR!!! ARIA LOCKING IN A FUJIWARA ARMBAR!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN HER USE THIS MOVE BEFORE!!!

Starr: Neither have I! And Aria is trying to get it locked in as hard as she can on Cameron! Cameron trying to force the hold to break, but there is no dice here! Aria has that firmly locked in! Cameron trying to roll herself away from the hold and CAMERON ROLLS THROUGH IT!!! CAMERON PINNING ARIA USING HOW SHE HAD THAT FUJIWARA LOCKED IN TO HER ADVANTAGE!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

ARIA BREAKING THE HOLD AND THE PIN AS WELL! CAMERON NEARLY HAD IT OFF OF THAT ALONE!!! ARIA PANTING, SHAKING HER HEAD AS CAMERON GETS TO HER FEET FIRST, AND DELIVERS A SLAP TO THE FACE OF ARIA!!!

Cameron: WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?! I’M A GODDESS! YOU DON’T DO THAT TO ME!

SG1: Cameron exchanging words with Aria here, and Aria reciprocating with a forearm to the jaw, and now both Women exchanging forearms! Aria getting the advantage with the strikes now, forcing Cameron to fall back against the ropes and Aria keeping up the momentum on the strikes! Aria staggering Cameron against the ropes and now smiling to herself as she slaps Cameron hard across the face! Aria backing all the way to the other side of the ring and…STARTS THAT HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW SPLASH! SHE NORMALLY DOES THIS ON A CORNERED OPPONENT!!! ARIA FLYING BACKWARDS…RIGHT INTO THE WAITING ARMS OF CAMERON!!! CAMERON CATCHING HER IN A WAIST LOCK NEAR THOSE ROPES AND…GERMAN SUPLEX BY CAMERON, THROWING ARIA OVER THE ROPES AND RIGHT ONTO HER NECK ON THE OUTSIDE!!! JESUS!!!

Starr: That’s why Cameron is a Goddess! She knows just how to use the ring as her weapon, and she just took out a very dangerous part of the competition. Cameron checking on Aria on the outside who is barely moving, and Cailin sliding in just behind her. Cameron turning around and quickly stomping down on Cailin, keeping her on her stomach and not on her feet.

SG1: And this is where the experience game comes into play for Cameron. She has been in a lot more wars than either one of these girls. She knows what to do to pull off a victory. Cameron with another brutal stomp to the back of her neck, planting her foot down on Cailin’s throat and grinding it there before delivering a sharp strike to the base of the neck. Cailin defenseless on her stomach and now Cameron mockingly backing away from her and motioning for her to get up. Cailin groggily obliging, getting to her knees as Cameron charges, going for a punt kick! CAILIN SHOOTING UP AND TACKLING CAMERON TO THE GROUND, AND NOW CAILIN WITH SOME FURIOUS GROUND AND POUND HERE, THROWING STRIKES AND ELBOWS!!! CAMERON RAISING HER ARMS TO BLOCK THE SHOTS, BUT NO DICE, AND CAILIN IS JUST TEEING OFF ON HER SKULL HERE! Cailin sliding off of Cameron, getting to the turnbuckles to catch a breather as Cameron drags herself to the ropes, using the ropes to pull herself up as leverage!

Starr: And Cameron is in a bad way here. Cailin racing right for her now, and kicks her legs out from under her, dropping her onto her back! Cailin, using the ropes springboarding up for extra height and drops her knee right across the face of Cameron! And again the ropes coming into play, springboarding up and dropping that knee one more time! Cailin’s brutality on full display here. Cailin reaching down, grasping Cameron by the skull and dragging her up to her feet. Cailin just…patting her cheek, almost as if she’s saying that she’s being a ‘good girl’ and now whipping Cam across the ring by her hair, throwing her face first into the mat! AND THERE’S BLOOD! A GUSH OF BLOOD SPITTING OUT FROM CAMERON’S NOSE THERE AND CAILIN LOOKS A THOUSAND TIMES HAPPIER SEEING IT THEN I COULD EVER IMAGINE!!!

SG1: Cailin accomplishing something that she wanted. She wanted to make Cameron pay for taking her title. And she’s doing just that. She’s showing no remorse. And no mercy! Cailin tapping her feet waiting for Cameron to get up. Urging her to get up! Cameron struggling to her feet, too stunned to stand properly and Cailin rushing forward!!! TEXAS TWO STEP!!! JUMPING CUTTER BY CAILIN DILLON CONNECTS!!! COVER BY CAILIN!!! NEW CHAMP!!!

OOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

ARIA DIVING IN BREAKS UP THE COUNT!!! ARIA SHOOTING INTO THE RING AND MAKES IT IN TIME JUST BARELY TO BREAK THE COUNT! CAMERON WISELY ROLLING OUT OF THE RING, AND NOW IT’S JUST CAILIN AND ARIA!! Aria, holding her neck in agony as Cailin stares down where Cameron rolled away, just shaking her head in frustration. Cailin had that. She knew she was inches away from victory. It was right there. And it was ripped from her by Aria. Cailin and Aria going face to face and Cailin SPITTING RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF ARIA! UTTER! DISRESPECT!

Starr: And Aria does not like that! Aria responding with a tackle and now trying to throw strikes down at Cailin who rolls her off the mount, going into strikes of her own! Aria rolling through that one as well, both girls getting back to their feet! CAILIN WITH THE EYES OF TEXAS, BUT ARIA DUCKS AWAY FROM IT! ARIA RESPONDS WITH THE CONTRACT KILLER! ARIA WITH A SUPERKICK OF HER OWN RIGHT TO THE JAW OF CAILIN!! CAILIN’S EYES ROLLING INTO THE BACK OF HER HEAD AS SHE DROPS STRAIGHT DOWN!!!! AND ARIA SEES IT!!! ARIA SEES HER MOMENT! HER TIME MAY FINALLY BE NEARING!!! ARIA POINTING TO THE TOP ROPE AND SLOWLY STARTS TO CLIMB!!! ARIA SCALING ALL THE WAY UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS CAILIN BEGINS TO RISE UP, WIPING BLOOD FROM HER LIPS!

SG1: Cailin has no idea what is coming! BUT WE DO!!! ARIA HOLDING UP A MIDDLE FINGER TO CAILIN!!! DIVING CORKSCREW STUNNER!!! CAILIN CAUGHT HER!!! CAILIN CAUGHT HER PARTWAY DOWN AND NOW POWERING HER BACK UP!!! ARIA WENT FOR THE CALIFORNIA CRUSH BUT CAILIN POWERED HER WAY OUT OF IT!!! CAILIN GOING FOR AN OKLAHOMA SLAM HERE!!! THROWS ARIA UP AND…ARIA WITH THE STUNNER!!! ARIA REVERSING THE SLAM WITH THE STUNNER, FINISHING THE MOVE!!! COVER!!! COVER!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

KICKOUT BY CAILIN!!!!

Starr: WOW! WOW! I’ve never seen that kind of combination of reversals in my life!! I thought Aria was a goner there, and then Cailin kicking out of a move like that! Cailin though is fighting through the pain it looks like. Aria as well, both girls still laying down from the pin attempt! Aria giving the first signs of life, pounding the mat with her hands, trying to fight through some of the pain that she is feeling. Cailin isn’t stirring, just staring lifelessly up at the sky. Aria dragging herself to the ropes, using them to pull herself up, AND CAM!!! CAMERON IS ALIVE!! CAMERON WITH THAT HUGE FOREARM TO THE SKULL OF ARIA FROM THE OUTSIDE!!! KNOCK BITCHES OUT BY CAMERON CONNECTS ON ARIA FROM THE OUTSIDE AND NOW CAMERON ROLLING BACK INTO THE RING!!!

SG1: Cameron I had thought was out of this match at this point! Cameron spitting blood onto the body of Aria, glaring down at her before her eyes turn to Cailin. Cameron actually has options now! Cameron could conceivably beat both of them here, right now! It’s all a matter of who she doesn’t like more at this point. Cameron wiping the blood from her forehead and moving over to stand over Cailin’s body, slapping her in the face a few times before returning to her pose. And that sick grin on Cameron’s face widens as she grabs Cailin by the hair, just slowly dragging her up to her feet with some kind of sick satisfaction. Cameron throwing Cailin into the ropes, Cailin rebounding off, and Cameron catches her!!! SPINEBUSTER!!! SPINEBUSTER BY CAMERON TO CAILIN, AND CAILIN’S NECK SNAPPING BACK ON THE IMPACT!!! THAT COULD BE A CONCUSSION!!! THAT COULD BE ANYTHING!!! THAT WAS HORRIFIC WAS WHAT IT WAS!!!

Starr: Cailin clutching the back of her neck in severe agony here, and Cameron smelling blood in the water. Once again grinding her foot against the neck of Cailin. Aria stirring on the other side and Cameron moving away from her writhing prey to focus on the other animal in the ring. Aria trying to drag herself back to her feet, and Cameron responding with a punch to the jaw! Aria actually forced up from the impact and Cameron continues to unload on her! Flurry of punches connecting all at once right now, as can’t even get her hands up to defend herself! Another big shot by Cameron and now Cameron isn’t letting up on Aria. Cameron with another big right hand which sends Aria into the turnbuckles, and Cameron just shaking her head to her.

Cameron: Come on! You want to be a Queen right?! Act like it! Act like it Aria!

SG1: Again, Cameron talking trash to Aria! Irish whip…HARD IRISH WHIP SENDING ARIA REBOUNDING OFF THE TURNBUCKLES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING, AND HERE COMES CAMERON!!! GODDESS TOUCH BY CAMERON!!! RUNNING ENZIGURI!!! RUNNING ENZIGURI!!! CAMERON WITH THE COVER!!! FOR THE WIN!!! HOOKING THE LEG!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

CAILIN DILLON BREAKS UP THE COUNT!!! CAILIN THIS TIME SAVING ARIA, JUST BARELY, AND CAMERON LOOKS FURIOUS!!! CAMERON GLARING DOWN TOWARDS CAILIN WHO IS STRUGGLING TOWARDS THE ROPES, HOLDING HER NECK STILL AS SHE YANKS HERSELF BACK TO A STAND!

Cameron: ARE YOU AN IDIOT?! ARE YOU THAT DENSE?! STAY DOWN!

Starr: Harsh words by Cameron. Very harsh words by Cameron. Cameron advancing towards Cailin who hits her with a back elbow to keep her at bay. Cameron charging again, and another back elbow breaks up the charge. Cameron with one more charge and Cailin with a third back elbow, and now Cailin throwing elbows rapidly at Cameron, keeping her backed away! Cameron though, delivering an elbow of her own and now rebounding off the ropes!!! WHERE DID ARIA COME FROM?! ARIA CATCHING CAMERON ON THE REBOUND!!! FLAPJACK BY ARIA, AND TEXAS TWO STEP BY CAILIN!!!! K.K.B.S. KISS KISS BANG STAB!!! THAT LETHAL FINISHING MANEUVER FROM WHEN ARIA AND CAILIN TEAMED AS THE SIRENS!!! ARIA SOMEHOW FINDING HERSELF BACK INTO THIS CONTEST, THROUGH SHEER FORCE OF WILL!!! AND CAMERON IS COMPLETELY LAID OUT FROM THAT!!! CAILIN AND ARIA LOOKING OVER TO EACH OTHER WITH SHOCK ON THEIR FACES, BUT THAT IS QUICKLY WIPED AWAY AS BOTH OF THEM SCRAMBLE FOR THE COVER ON CAMERON!!!

SG1: Well…the ref can’t really call the pin on her with this! If both girls got the pin who would be the genuine winner of this contest? Aria is the first one to get off of Cameron, and Cailin following suit, both girls staring at each other as the crowd roars! This is what it has all come down to! The months of mind games, and backstabs, and here it finally is. What these two have wanted. And Cailin charges first, and Aria goes as well, both girls throwing heavy strikes at one another, rapid fists flying into each others skulls. And Cailin, the consummate brawler, gets the early advantage, forcing Aria to break from the strikes!!! Cailin with the distance! ARIA COMING BACK!!! EYES OF TEXAS!!! ARIA RAN DIRECTLY INTO THE SUPERKICK BY CAILIN DILLON! CAILIN FOR THE COVER! CAILIN FOR THE VICTORY!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE–

ARIA KICKED OUT!!! ARIA KICKED OUT!!! CAILIN JUST SAT UP IN STUNNED DISBELIEF, STARING DOWN AT ARIA IN SHOCK! ARIA FOUND THE ABILITY, THE WHEREWITHAL, TO ACTUALLY KICK OUT OF THAT DEVASTATING MOVE! Cailin shaking her head in stunned disbelief her, and grabbing the leg again, going for another cover!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

KICKOUT AGAIN!!! GRABS THE LEG FOR ANOTHER ONE!!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Starr: MUCH EARLIER KICKOUT AND NOW THE FRUSTRATION IS BUILDING FOR CAILIN! CAILIN GETTING TO HER FEET IN OUTRAGE RIGHT NOW, GLARING DOWN AT ARIA IN SHEER HATRED! Cailin turning around to find something else to use against her AND GETS CAUGHT BY CAMERON!!! CAMERON BACK UP FROM THE K.K.B.S. AND QUICKLY GETS CAILIN ONTO HER SHOULDERS!!! FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION!!! SWINGING CAILIN OUT!!! STUNNER!!! FIREMAN’S CARRY STUNNER!!! THE BREAKING BARRIERS 2.0 CONNECTS!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA WITH ONE OF HER BIGGEST MOVES, PULLING IT OUT AT THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL!!! CAM LOOKING BACK AT CAILIN, GO ON CAM!!! GO ON CHAMP! PIN HER!!! PIN HER AND WIN THIS THING!!!

SG1: She’s…not going for the pin at all Starr. She keeps looking between Aria and Cailin. I think that Cam wants to make a statement. She wants to prove that you don’t mess with the OG’s. She wants to prove that she truly is the Goddess of EAW!!! Cameron getting to her feet, still woozy from the K.K.B.S. and grabs Aria by the air. Dragging her to her feet…ARIA PLAYING POSSUM!!! ARIA WASN’T AS LIFELESS AS WE THOUGHT!!! ARIA HOOKING THE NECK OF CAMERON!!!! FLIP ALL THE WAY UP FOR THE SHIRANUI!!! BACKSTABBER AS THE FOLLOW THROUGH!!! ARIA WITH THE PINKPRINT!!! PINKPRINT OUT OF NOWHERE!!! THE COVER!!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Starr: NO WAY! NO!!!

SG1: I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS!

(“Formation” by Beyonce hits as Aria lays lifeless on the ground, tears coming to her eyes as she stares up at the ceiling, the crowd cheering her name as the referee grabs for the belt, draping it across her stomach.)

RA: The winner of this contest and the NEW EAW Women’s Champion!!! ARIA!!!! JAXON!!!

(Aria struggles to get to her feet, her hand immediately reaching down to hold the title close to her as the tears continue to well up, holding the title close to her as if it were a child before raising it high into the air with one hand.)

Starr: Finally! Aria Jaxon’s dreams are realized as she holds the Women’s Championship high above her head! SG1, what an amazing feeling that must be.

SG1: You just think about everything she’s gone through to get to this point. The disappointment at Pain for Pride 9 and the missed opportunities to become the champion earlier this year. Just an unreal moment for one of the best in this company.

(Cailin drops to the outside, unable to move as Aria celebrates her victory.)

Starr: What an absolutely monumental win here tonight, and I’m glad I was able to see it happen live! For an entire year, this woman has fought from the very bottom of the ladder after losing the Vixens Championship last year at Pain For Pride, and tonight she just rectified every loss! Every stumble she had along the way!

(A group appears, coming from the crowd as they surround a still downed Cailin Dillon on the outside)

Starr: THE COVEN!!! IT’S THE COVEN!!! WELL IT’S THREE OF THEM ANYWAY!! ALEXIS, MADISON, AND JOCELYN ARE SURROUNDING THE RING…AND THERE’S ALSO…

SG1: Eclipse is here. Eclipse is… he’s directing them!

SG1: Eclipse just gave a signal and they’re all in the ring closing in on Cailin!

(The Coven picks up a motionless Cailin Dillon, carrying her away as Aria Jaxon takes notice in the ring, looking on as they make their way up the ramp)

Starr: Oh my god. SG1? The Sanatorium… They’re taking her! They just took Cailin!

SG1: And Aria looks just as confused as the rest of us! A very ominous sight to behold here tonight!

(Aria goes back to her celebration, proudly holding up the Womens World Championship for the World to see as the crowd erupts with cheers. A damaged and frustrated Cameron Ella Ava is shown next to the steps on the outside as Aria continues to celebrate in the ring)

Starr: Well, nonetheless, a huge congratulations to our newly-crowned Womens World Champion! What a match!

[10 minute Intermission]

Ring Announcer: The following contest is YOUR PAIN FOR PRIDE DAY 1 MAIN EVENT!!…. It will be scheduled for one fall and is for….THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!

(With that announcement being made the lights in the building suddenly go dim for every part of the arena except the stage area, where a spotlight hangs over it. We begin to make out some movement going on in the shadows of the entrance way just a few feet away from the light. It appears to be two people, walking closer and closer until we finally end up seeing them fully as two men dressed as guards from Roman times step out into the spotlight, seemingly holding something. They walk even further into the light as we can soon see that there are more guards behind them, all carrying the object together. More and more of the object is shown revealing it to be a platform where the outline of a figure is being carried. The whole group enters the spotlight now as everything is on displaying, showing Tiberius IV to be sitting atop his throne, looking straight ahead at the ring with a cold demeanor. His gear is all black with the exception of a silver outline on his chest creating the shape of a panther. The guards ease up and gently lower the platform as Tiberius gets up and steps off of it, leaving the guards behind as the lights on the ramp light up while he walks down it.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger, from Gaia, weighing in at 213 pounds! He is “The King of Thieves”……..TIBEEEERRRRIIIIUUUUUUSSSS IVVVVVVVVV!!!!!!

WWEFan: This is the moment Tiberius IV has been waiting on for a long time and now he finally has it; a main event match for a world title and to make things even better it is right here on EAW’s biggest stage: Pain For Pride! Tiberius has felt entitled to this moment ever since he won the King of Elite crown back in January, this is something he feels was only a matter of time! He has made it known that he is not worried about failure, he sees Drastik as somebody that he can beat, he has already done it before so I can see why he is confident but at the same time he needs to think about the fact he did not do it one on one and he damn sure didn’t do it with stakes high like they are now. There was a lot on the line before, but this is career defining! This is for the EAW title! He better be ready to give it his all to beat this man!

(As Tiberius gets into the ring a video begins to appear on the titantron, showing footage of a young Drastik when he first entered EAW. The video progresses throughout the years running down all of his his career highlights from his Hardcore title and Interwire title wins, to his Tag Team title wins, to a huge portion going over all of his world title wins which culminates in his latest EAW Championship win from this year’s Grand Rampage. As the video finishes flashing through all of his history, it makes a sudden stop from there and the screen turns black.)

“SAIL.”

(“Adventures” by Kid Cudi hits the PA system following that as Drastik steps out of the curtain and makes his way onto the stage, unstrapping the EAW Championship from around his waist and raising it up. As he poses, banners shoot down with images of all of his Pain For Pride appearances on them. Drastik looks around at them, taking it all in before taking off his sunglasses and focusing on the ring, walking down the ramp to his opponent.)

Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Oakland, California, weighing in at 225 pounds……he is the EAW Champion……DRAAAAASSSSTTTTIIIKKKKKK!!!

Kawajai: This is honestly crazy to think about! Drastik is back on a Pain For Pride stage in the first time in years and he is doing so in our main event as EAW Champion. I never would have imagined this and for a while I do not think he imagined it either but Drastik has managed to prove everyone wrong and in a whole new landscape of EAW with so many fresh faces he has shown to be a constant in this company that will not be removed from his spot. Drastik has managed to keep up with all of the rising talent in EAW but now is his biggest test: Tiberius IV. The last time these two crossed paths Tiberius walked away with a W but tonight Drastik promises redemption. A win here tonight would be the icing on the cake for what has already been a great EAW season for this living legend. Can he cap it all off with a big victory?

(Drastik enters the ring and takes his jacket off, staring a hole into Tiberius IV as soon as they lock eyes. He hands over his EAW title to the referee who holds it up for both men to see and then passes it to a stage hand, signaling for the bell soon after.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: The bell has rung and our main event for night one of Pain For Pride is underway! The EAW Champion Drastik goes on the approach, making his way toward Tiberius IV as Tiberius is pacing around the ring, making the smart decision to keep his distance in the opening moments of this match up. Drastik is trying to make up for that separation as he moves faster so he can get close — Drastik with a charge straight at Tiberius! Tiberius swings and connects with a kick to the jaw which stuns him! Tiberius picks his spot as he now rushes at Drastik, hooking him by the throat with a clothesline which brings him all of the way into the turnbuckles! Drastik is cornered as Tiberius goes for stomps to the midsection, changing it up with punches to the face in between!

Kawajai: Tiberius is overwhelming Drastik with a series of strikes but hold on! Drastik is lucky enough to catch his hand there! He switches it up on Tiberius, getting him into the corner as he then springboards off the middle rope next to him AND CATCHES HIM IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH A HEEL KICK! Tiberius is in a bit of a daze as he walks out of the corner following that, Drastik is right there behind him stalking him…mowing him down with a forearm from behind! Drastik is standing over the downed Tiberius, digging the tip of his boot directly onto Tiberius’ spine! Drastik placing his boot more and more onto the back of the challenger, before he just jumps up AND DROPS A KNEE RIGHT DOWN ON HIM! Tiberius is trying to roll away and catch a breather but Drastik hops over his body and then blocks his path of exit; DROPKICK TO THE CHEST AS A FOLLOW UP!

WWEFan: Drastik is on top of Tiberius IV and is hitting him again and again! He has Tiberius at his mercy right now and is not stopping the onslaught! Drastik with shot after shot to Tiberius who is covering up! Tiberius is moving around while Drastik has got him in that mount, looking to turn over onto his stomach while Drastik remains positioned over him. I am not sure how much that repositioning helped as he is left open for elbow shots to the back of his skull! Tiberius is eating those hits one after another but hold on! Tiberius is sliding underneath Drastik! Tiberius has Drastik on his shoulders while he is attempting to stand up on his feet! Tiberius is onto a vertical base! Our EAW Champion is high up in the air in the electric chair! Tiberius is walking around with Drastik hanging onto him, perhaps looking for The Game Clincher, but Drastik keeps resisting it! Drastik fights Tiberius…and he lets go of him! OH! That might not be where Drastik wanted to be let go at! Drastik being left to bounce throat first off of the ring ropes! Drastik holding his throat as he goes flying back into the arms of Tiberius IV!

Kawajai: Tiberius is aiming for a German suplex here but Drastik still has the awareness to struggle against it! Drastik is keeping his feet planted on the ground, putting this at a stand still. He powers out of the waist lock and grabs Tiberius by the hand, irish whipping his challenger across the ring. Drastik taking those brief seconds to get some air back into his lungs and recover but Tiberius comes back around rather quickly. Drastik leapfrogs over him on the rebound! Tiberius hits the ropes again — hip toss by Drastik attempted….NO! As Drastik goes to toss Tiberius, he breaks free and transitions into a DDT, spiking Drastik right onto his head! The neck area of Drastik is taking a lot of damage here and it seems it won’t end as Tiberius picks Drastik up by his hair, wrenches his neck back and gets him in the dragon sleeper!

WWEFan: This is a very awkward position for Drastik as Tiberius is pulling back as hard as he can….and he is beating at Drastik’s chest to go along with the submission, clawing at it too for good measure! Drastik is gripping the arms of Tiberius, hoping to pry him off! Drastik is tearing that arm away with all of his might…..as he breaks free! Drastik twists out of it! Step up enzuigiri to the back of the head! Tiberius is out on his feet, most likely not even knowing where he is as Drastik brings him in! STANDING C4 CONNECTS BY DRASTIK! Drastik shoots up to his feet after that, turns his back to Tiberius AND CAPS IT OFF WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT! A hook of the leg by Drastik now, could this be it?

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE….TWOOOOOOOOOOO…..

Kawajai: Tiberius IV lifts his shoulder up, saving this EAW title match! Drastik sees that the match is not over and immediately starts planning out his next move. He grabs that shoulder of Tiberius’ and starts to wrestle him down face first onto the canvas! Drastik is forcing Tiberius into a front chancery and is using his feet and is kicking away for some friction while Tiberius tries his damndest to push him back! Drastik gets Tiberius back onto the ground and flips over! THE COGITO LOCK! DRASTIK GETTING THE COGITO LOCK APPLIED EARLY ON WITH TIBERIUS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! DRASTIK IS HOLDING THAT IN TIGHT! Tiberius is dragging himself over to the ropes as Drastik is wearing him out by the second, that effort it takes to bring him across the ring is taking away precious energy he might need for later in the contest! But wait, with all of that moving forward Tiberius is doing, that Cogito lock is starting to falter as Drastik can no longer balance on the top of his head! Drastik falls over but is fast with how he makes a recovery!

WWEFan: He maintains that front chancery, using it to guide Tiberius up onto his feet!….Swinging neckbreaker! Tiberius sits up in pain but Drastik puts him right onto his back. Drastik has him pinned down in a lateral press to try for another cover but of course Tiberius has too much fight in him to keep his shoulders put long enough for the referee to even count. Drastik is incredibly focused on match closers at the moment, it may not even be to get the win right off the bat persay, it seems he just wants to get Tiberius IV as tired as possible. Tiberius is hoping for a breather but there will be no rest for the weary! Drastik scoops up Tiberius in a gutwrench, tosses him up; AND THEN CATCHES HIM IN A GUTBUSTER! Tiberius is clutching his stomach in pain while taking a knee but soon he won’t even be upright entirely! SUPERKICK! Drastik catching Tiberius perfectly underneath the chin!

Kawajai: Tiberius has his hands out and is pushing up, the only thing currently keeping him from being flat on his face. Drastik grabs those hands though, it is time to hand out even more punishment I guess. HANG ON! Superman punch by Tiberius to catch Drastik off guard! Drastik got his jaw jacked and is hunched over favoring it meanwhile Tiberius is on the ground using this time that he had bought himself to gather his bearings. Tiberius is huddled up, his hands in a ball as he is amping himself up. He’s got his next move ready for Drastik who is still on shaky knees! Wait…what is Tiberius doing? Tiberius is prepping himself for —

Tiberius IV: Kaaaaaaaaaaa…..meeeee…..haaaaaaa…..mmeeeeeeeeee………HAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

WWEFan: THE DOUBLE PALM THRUST RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF DRASTIK AS YOU COULD HEAR A SHARP IMPACT UPON CONTACT! JESUS CHRIST, DRASTIK’S NOSE JUST EXPLODED FROM THAT HIT AS HE IS BLEEDING FROM IT AT A CRAZY RATE! Drastik is rushing on over to the turnbuckle for some safety, holding his nose while the referee runs to him for his status, hoping to help in cleaning up some of the bleeding. The match is taking a slight break here it seems but Tiberius does not want to wait AT ALL. Tiberius backs away to get some momentum and then he runs full speed ahead at Drastik at the corner! The referee gets the hell out of dodge just in the knick of time as there goes Tiberius crashing into the scene with a Shoryuken! THAT RUNNING UPPERCUT INTO DRASTIK WHO I DO NOT KNOW HOW IS STILL STANDING! Tiberius does not slow down his pace, he goes between the ropes next and gets on the apron.

Kawajai: Tiberius IV makes his way to the turnbuckles and climbs to the top! Tiberius is yelling for Drastik’s attention, he has him set up! FLYING CROSSBODY! TIBERIUS FALLING ON TOP OF DRASTIK AND THEN HOOKING BOTH OF HIS LEGS FOR A PINFALL!

Referee: OONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE…..TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO….TT —

Kawajai: NO! Drastik jerks his body out of the predicament! Drastik is heading to his feet and walking off with Tiberius IV hot on his tail. Drastik gets spun around. KOMODO BITE! TIBERIUS SINKING HIS TEETH INTO THE FOREHEAD OF THE EAW CHAMPION, LOOKING TO OPEN UP HIS FLESH AS DRASTIK IS FIGHTING HIM IN A PANIC! TIBERIUS IS LIKE A MADMAN! OUR OFFICIAL WANTS TO SEPARATE THEM BUT NO NEED! HARD SWING BY DRASTIK GETTING TIBERIUS IN THE RIBS! Both guys need a second to get over their injuries, Drastik getting over his before Tiberius it appears. Drastik sprints past Tiberius, hits the ropes and then grinds Tiberius’ face across the mat with the delivery of a one handed bulldog! Drastik taking just a split second to wipe away excess blood pouring from his nose, a reminder of what Tiberius did to him which angers him even more….DRASTIK DASHES BACK TO TIBERIUS WHEN HE LIFTS HIMSELF OFF THE MAT AND DOES A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO TIBERIUS’ HEAD! Tiberius putting his hands over his mouth, I would not be shocked if he lost a tooth from that!

WWEFan: Drastik watches Tiberius IV rise back up to a vertical base with nothing but evil intentions filling his head I am sure. Tiberius starts to regain his focus and sees Drastik from the corner of his eye, laying back, just stalking him. Tiberius has been tipped off and so with a burst of energy he speeds at Drastik, looking to strike first but Drastik still manages to beat him to the punch! Drastik goes flying off of his feet and damn near takes Tiberius’ head off with a lariat! Tiberius was turned inside out there as he lays folded up on the ground having landed on his NECK! The EAW Champion is looking pretty happy with himself and the good times are not stopping, Drastik leans in to grab the legs of Tiberius and DEADLIFTS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! The weakened Tiberius has been swung up into the air!

Kawajai: Tiberius IV delivers some hard punches to the face but Drastik takes the blows and carries on, DRASTIK GOES FULL SPEED AHEAD AS HE LAUNCHES TIBERIUS FOR A BUCKLE BOMB, SENDING HIM COLLIDING INTO THAT CORNER AT HIGH VELOCITY! TIBERIUS HITS TURNBUCKLE SO HARD THE PADDING JUST FELL OFF AT THE TOP ONE FROM THE SHEER FORCE! Tiberius’ back must be on fire at this point, he takes a knee in the corner as he can barely even stand it! He grits his teeth and bares through the pain, regaining his footing — BUT THERE GOES DRASTIK WITH A CORNER SPLASH! Drastik has just been on Tiberius from the moment he got back control of the match! Drastik is continuing that control by slinging Tiberius over his shoulder and then seating him on the top rope. Oh man, Drastik is climbing up there to join him! Something big is ahead!

WWEFan: Drastik is getting Tiberius set up just right; Drastik is stood up on the middle rope, gripping the side of Tiberius IV’s tights as hard as he can. The arm of Tiberius is draped over Drastik’s head, Drastik has his arm wrapped around Tiberius’, I know what is going on here! Drastik is looking to go for a SUPERPLEX! Drastik wishes to lift up Tiberius and deliver the maneuver but Tiberius is not budging! Tiberius has his legs locked around that corner, doing what he can to keep himself from being flung off! Drastik is pulling on him with all of his might but it seems like it will be no use! Tiberius gives some tough jabs to the abdomen, weakening the grip of Drastik! Tiberius then boxes Drastik’s ears! He has let go of any plans of that superplex attempt! Drastik is about to fall off but he grabs those ropes to keep himself from hitting the mat!

Kawajai: Drastik showing some great upper body strength as he yanks himself back up onto the middle rope — SLINGSHOTTING HIMSELF INTO A HEADBUTT FROM TIBERIUS! Tiberius was waiting for him and came prepared! Drastik’s eyes are glazed over, leaving him open for Tiberius to regain control! Tiberius IV grabs him and is now changing up Drastik’s position on the middle rope…..Tiberius has Drastik facing forward and is hovering behind him on the top rope! What is he thinking here? It can not be good! Tiberius holds onto Drastik’s shoulders and stands himself up onto the top rope — BEFORE TAKING AN INSANE LEAP OVER HIM! OOOHHH MY GOD!! THE S! O! M! THE STRIKE OF MIDNIGHT SOMERSAULT CUTTER CONNECTS FROM THE TOP ROPE! DRASTIK WAS JUST PLANTED, WHAT A DROP! A RING SHAKING S.O.M. THERE, I’VE NEVER SEEN SOMETHING LIKE THAT! DRASTIK IS OUT LIKE A LIGHT AS TIBERIUS TURNS DRASTIK OVER AND HOOKS THE LEG! WE MAY HAVE OURSELVES A NEW EAW CHAMPION!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE —

WWEFan:KICK OUT! DRASTIK SOMEHOW FOUND THE WHEREWITHAL TO KICK OUT AFTER THAT DEVASTATING MOVE! Tiberius rolls over onto his side and starts to think things over. What exactly does he need to do next to keep Drastik from getting up again? Drastik is already beginning to stir and so Tiberius IV kips up so that he can be there observing him. He does not want Drastik out of his sight! Drastik crawls over and puts his hand on the boot of Tiberius IV, holding onto it and then using him to stand himself up. Drastik is looking up at his opponent who is smiling ear to ear. Tiberius has Drastik where he wants him. Drastik still has enough sense to take a swipe at Tiberius but Tiberius is able to telegraph it and duck underneath it, picking Drastik up and sending him face first onto the canvas courtesy of a flapjack!

Kawajai: Drastik is bent up on the ground, his face buried in the canvas, breathing heavily from exhaustion. It’s crazy how quick the tables have turned for our champion, he is in a bad way. Drastik is scraped off the ground and then placed between the knees of Tiberius IV. Tiberius flips him up onto his back, binding back Drastik’s arms and legs in a gory bomb! Watch out for Drastik though! He is wriggling free! Tiberius is having issues in maintaining that gory bomb set up! Drastik gets his arms over and flips forward! SUNSET FLIP DROPPING TIBERIUS ON HIS HEAD! THE SHOULDERS ARE DOWN AND DRASTIK HAS BODY ON BODY, THIS QUALIFIES FOR A PIN ATTEMPT!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE….TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO…..

WWEFan: Drastik halts the pin! Huh!? Drastik keeps his arms around Tiberius’ waist and starts to stand up! Tiberius has his head between Drastik’s knees now, the shoe is on the other foot here! Drastik showing that he still has some strength left in him by powering Tiberius up…..AND BRINGING HIM BACK DOWN WITH A PILEDRIVER! DRASTIK JUMPED UP WITH IT TOO TO GIVE THAT MOVE THAT ADDED IMPACT! THE FORCE SHOOTING UP TIBERIUS NECK AND DOWN HIS SPINE AS HE SHIVERS WITH AGONY! Drastik is sat down looking at Tiberius convulse, admiring his work as you can make out a slight smirk starting to appear on his face. Drastik is turning over and pushing himself up to his feet. Kick to the laid out body of Tiberius! Drastik carries the body of Tiberius, ignoring the deadweight as he focuses on getting him up in the air AND HITTING HIM WITH A POWERSLAM! Drastik grabs Tiberius’ arm and inches him a bit to the right, making sure he is directly center in the ring. What for? I don’t know.

Kawajai: I know! Drastik is entering the high rent district! Drastik going up high as he has himself perched! Drastik looks down at Tiberius from above and then bounces on the top rope, turning himself over so that his back is facing Tiberius! We all can expect what is about to happen next! Drastik gives one last look over his shoulder to confirm that Tiberius IV is on his back and will not be getting up….AND THEN HE GOES OFF OF THE TOP ROPE! THE STIGMATA! STIGMATA FROM THE TOP ROPE! THAT CORKSCREW MOONSAULT HITTING TIBERIUS DIRECTLY IN THE RIBS, KNOCKING THE WIND OUT OF HIM! DRASTIK STAYS ON TIBERIUS AND PULLS BACK ON BOTH LEGS, FORCING HIS WEIGHT ONTO THE FACE OF TIBERIUS FOR AN EXTREMELY TIGHT COVER! THE REFEREE DROPS DOWN TO COUNT; COVER RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING, NOWHERE TO GO, WILL THIS BE THE LAST COVER OF THE MATCH?

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE….TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO……….THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…..

WWEFan: TIBERIUS IV MUSTERS UP THE ENERGY TO PUSH DRASTIK UP OFF OF HIM! Drastik lets out a huge shout of frustration before falling down onto his back! Tiberius may have got his shoulders off of the mat but he is still hurting, Drastik has a relatively good amount of time to rest and go over a new game plan. Drastik turns his head and just looks at Tiberius who is moving but obviously does not have a lot going on upstairs. Every movement by Tiberius almost feels like an act of defiance to Drastik, it angers him! Drastik gets to his feet, rips his elbow pad off AND DROPS THE ELBOW RIGHT TO THE HEART OF TIBERIUS IV! Tiberius has been coughing up a storm, that was brutal! Drastik wants to kill any fight inside of Tiberius! This is where we see Drastik start to be more methodical! Drastik gets up AND ANOTHER ELBOW LANDS TO THE HEART!

Kawajai: Tiberius is rolling around in pain and Drastik is watching with that cold demeanor. Neither of these guys cares for the other, there will be no pity on either side! Drastik picks Tiberius up and places him near the steel ring post. Tiberius is under that bottom turnbuckle, his body is almost limp! Drastik has got him in the crosshairs, it is time for him to take his shot! BASEMENT DROPKICK BY DRASTIK TO SEND TIBERIUS’ GUT INTO THAT POST!

WWEFan: NOT SO FAST! Tiberius slides out of position, slipping to the outside and leaving Drastik to hit that ring post on his own! Drastik is holding his ankle and I for one am surprised it did not shatter into pieces! Tiberius left Drastik to crash and burn on that move and is about to reap the benefits of it! Tiberius hops onto the apron while Drastik hobbles around. Tiberius firmly puts his hands on the ropes and then takes off via springboarding! THE HEADHUNTER! THAT MISSILE DROPKICK! WAIT! DRASTIK GETS OUT OF THE WAY!! TIBERIUS HITS THE CANVAS AND SO DRASTIK LOOKS TO CAPITALIZE AS HE RISKS IT ALL AGAIN! SPRINGBOARD BY DRASTIK! HE TWISTS IN MID-AIR TO DELIVER A SENTON! TIBERIUS AVOIDS THAT THOUGH! DRASTIK ROLLS THROUGH TO PROTECT HIMSELF AND IS SPRUNG UP ON HIS FEET! HE POUNCES AT TIBERIUS WHO WAS STARTING TO SHAKE OFF THE COBWEBS – BUT TIBERIUS SIDE STEPS HIM! TIBERIUS REDIRECTS DRASTIK AND SENDS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE AS HE GOES TUMBLING!

Kawajai: TIBERIUS IV IS QUICK TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HE MUST DO NEXT! FULL SPEED AHEAD! SUICIDE DIIIVEEEEEEE!!! TIBERIUS SHOOTS OUT WITH BULLET LIKE QUICKNESS DRIVING INTO DRASTIK AND LAYING HIM OUT! Drastik’s back skids off of the bottom of the ramp and his day is only going to get even worse, Tiberius has Drastik’s legs AND HE CATAPULTS HIM INTO THE CROWD RESTRAINT! DRASTIK SMASHING AGAINST THAT COLD HARD STEEL, PRESSING IN THE BARRICADE — AND THEN PUSHING IT IN EVEN FURTHER WHEN TIBERIUS COMES RUNNING INTO HIM LIKE A BATTERING RAM WITH A SPEAR! WHAT HAS GOTTEN INTO TIBERIUS!? Drastik drops into the arms of Tiberius as he can no longer take any more punishment, Drastik may just be done! Tiberius has him up…AND THEN SENDS HIM ONTO THE HARD FLOOR! SNAP SUPLEX! Those thin mats providing hardly any safety from the concrete under it!

WWEFan: That woke Drastik up for sure! He can’t keep taking hits like that! Drastik holds his spine and starts to rise up to a vertical base! Drastik is not giving up, he advances toward the challenger – who pops him up! Drastik leaps over his head though! Drastik is on the apron! SUPERKICK TO TIBERIUS! THEN A TORNADO PLANCHA TO BOOT! DRASTIK HAS GOT HIMSELF BACK IN THIS! Drastik lays there, trying to get back his senses. The crowd is divided for both men as the warring sides command their respective Elitist to return to their feet. Drastik may want to pick up a sense of urgency but I don’t think he really has enough in the tank to push himself like that. Drastik is using the barricade almost like a crutch to guide himself back up to his feet, waiting until he is no longer spaghetti-legged before he breaks away from it and goes back to Tiberius. The official has laid back so far, acting a bit lenient as he recognizes the stakes of this Pain For Pride main event!

Kawajai: Drastik has Tiberius IV in his clutches. He has a handful of hair in one hand and Tiberius’ tights in the other, winding him back BEFORE TOSSING HIM STRAIGHT AT US! HOLY HELL! WE NARROWLY AVOID GETTING CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE AS TIBERIUS CLEARS NEARLY EVERYTHING OFF OUR TABLE IN THE PROCESS! Tiberius is being held up by our announcers chairs, definitely an uncomfortable place to be as Drastik heads over and strips away what is left from our announce table! Notes, chords, our monitors, they all gotta go as he is tossing them to the floor to leave that table bare! Drastik reaches over and grabs Tiberius, having his body fully slung over the announce table, banging his head over that table again and again!

WWEFan: Drastik won’t stop! He is still going with those slams! One after the other! Drastik finally halts his assault and backs away to look at Tiberius, making sure that he is truly unresponsive! Drastik now turns Tiberius so he is laid on his back on that announce table! Drastik rolls back into the ring, moving a bit gingerly due to all of the abuse taken in this match. The referee is suggesting he think better of whatever he has in mind but Drastik just tells him to stay out of this! Drastik grabs those ropes and looks to launch himself, but OH! Drastik drops back into the ring, tripping on his ankle! He’s been pushing himself too hard, especially after that dropkick to the post! He might need to think of a new idea here!

Kawajai: No way, Drastik is dead set on this! He is willing himself through this. He takes a deep breath, grips those ropes again — AND HE SPRINGS UP TO THE TOP ROPE! DRASTIK FOR A SPLASH —

WWEFan: NO! TIBERIUS FALLS OFF THE TABLE! DRASTIK FLIPS BACK INTO THE RING! He grunts at the pain brought to his ankle because of it but brushes it off and rebounds off of the ropes! SUICIDE DIVE! AGAIN NO! Tiberius moves, forcing Drastik to once more think on his feet as he whips around onto the apron! Tiberius though grabs his legs! He yanks Drastik onto his shoulders to have him in the Electric Chair….OH MY…..THE GAME CLINCHER! GAME CLINCHER ONTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! THAT THING BARELY HAD GIVE EITHER! A DENT HAS BEEN FORMED IN THE TABLE FROM DRASTIK’S HEAD!

Kawajai: Tiberius knows that he has to wrap it up from here! He carries Drastik’s unconscious body, tossing him between the ropes and back into the ring. Tiberius rolls in for the cover, I think we might have to call it a match!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEOOOOOO!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Kawajai: That’s it! Wha– it’s not!? The referee is calling it, he’s pointing at the mat, Drastik lifted a shoulder up! Tiberius is looking like he is on the verge of a breakdown, this man almost caved Drastik’s skull in with the Game Clincher yet Drastik still will not say die. Tiberius has Drastik lifted again! Drastik is up in the electric chair for the THIRD time! Tiberius is shouting out to the world that this is it, he is finishing this once and for all with this move! Here we GO! OUCH! DRASTIK! DRASTIK LEANS BACK AND TIPS IT IN HIS FAVOR! THE REVERSE HURRICANRANA! WHERE DID HE GET THAT FROM! DRASTIK IS PULLING FROM HIS RESERVES IN A LAST DITCH EFFORT RIGHT NOW! Tiberius is looking up at the lights like he doesn’t know where he is after that! DRASTIK WITH A STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS TO KEEP HIM FROM GETTING UP! Drastik then rolls back to the corner, a place which has become his best friend in this match, and he gets himself up there as fast as his body can allow. Drastik climbing to the top and without so much as any hesitation this time JUMPS OFF! THE STIGMATA FOR A SECOND TIME AND IT ONCE AGAIN HITS TIBERIUS TO PERFECTION! DRASTIK WITH THE COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE……TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO………THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE —

WWEFan: TIBERIUS IV! I DON’T KNOW HOW! I DON’T KNOW WHY! BUT HE BREAKS THE PIN WITH AN AUTHORITATIVE KICKOUT! I CAN NOT BELIEVE THIS!

Kawajai: This is what the Pain For Pride stage will do to you, it takes you to another level of desire! Tiberius saving himself perhaps out of pure instinct, as soon as the match was officially he saved he turns over and rests, crawling for cover while he spits up blood. Drastik creeps up behind Tiberius and tries to carry on with the match but Tiberius won’t let Drastik move him! Tiberius is staying put, Drastik is playing a game of tug of war with the arm of the challenger but Tiberius uses the other to swing back and hit Drastik! Drastik falls back and in turn lands an elbow on the ref! Uh oh! The official walks around the ring holding his face as Tiberius sees his moment! Tiberius appears to have a mouthful of something, no, no, NOT THE MIST!

WWEFan: OH! SPINNING BACKFISSSTTTTT!!!! DRASTIK WITH THE SPINNING BACKFIST BEFORE TIBERIUS CAN SPIT IT OUT AT DRASTIK! TIBERIUS’ HEAD WHIPS BACK AND THAT MIST GOES FLYING IN THE AIR AS SOME OF IT FLIES IN TIBERIUS EYES! THAT MIST WAS RED TOO! THAT IS THE COLOR WHICH IS MEANT TO BURN HIS OPPONENTS AND IT IS FOR SURE SEARING TIBERIUS’ EYES! TIBERIUS TRIED TO BE SLICK AND SNEAK THE MIST WHILE HE WAS COVERED UP BUT IT BACKFIRED ON HIM! DRASTIK GETS BEHIND HIM! ROLL UP BY DRASTIK AS THE REFEREE RECOVERS AND DROPS FOR THE COUNT! TIBERIUS MAY HAVE COST HIMSELF THE EAW TITLE!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Kawajai: TIBERIUS PUSHES DRASTIK OFF! Drastik just got kicked off of Tiberius and he GOES INTO THAT TURNBUCKLE, THAT TURNBUCKLE WITH THE EXPOSED PADDING! HANG ON! DRASTIK PUTS HIS FOOT UP AND STOPS THE MOMENTUM, SAVING HIMSELF FROM HITTING IT! Drastik turns around….AND A LOW HANGING DROPKICK BY TIBERIUS, GETTING DRASTIK IN THE LEG HE WAS FAVORING! DRASTIK IS FORCED TO TAKE KNEE AS TIBERIUS IS WIPING THAT MIST OUT OF HIS EYES IN A HURRY! He sees that Drastik is stirring — TIBERIUS PUTS A STOP TO THAT WITH A SUPERKICK! TIBERIUS GETTING TO BE THE ONE WHO DELIVERS IT THIS TIME! DRASTIK IS OUT ON HIS KNEES, HIS HEAD SUNK OVER — TIBERIUS RUSHES UP BEHIND HIM!

WWEFan: STRIKE OF MIDNIGHT! TIBERIUS WITH THAT SOMERSAULT CUTTER YET AGAIN, DRIVING DRASTIK’S HEAD INTO THE MAT! TIBERIUS LAYS THERE, HARDLY ABLE TO BREATHE, COME ON! HE CAN CATCH HIS BREATH LATER, NOW HE MUST ACT! TIBERIUS TURNS DRASTIK OVER WITH EVERYTHING LEFT IN HIS BODY….AND DRAPES THE ARM OVER DRASTIK! THE REFEREE GOES OVER TO COUNT IT!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“The Mission” by Puscifer plays as Tiberius IV spends his first few moments motionless on top of Drastik, finally showing some sign of life soon after when he turns over and lays on his back, his eyes -which are still red from the burning mist- widening in disbelief. The referee leans over the ropes and reaches for the EAW Championship from the stagehand who hands it over and allows for him to drop into Tiberius’ lap.)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner….ANNNDDDDD NEEEEEWWWWWWW….EAW CHAMPIOOOOONNNNN……TIBEEEEEERRRRIIIIUUUUUUUUSSSS IVVVVVVVVVVV!!!!!

WWEFan: You know, I have had my doubts about Tiberius IV and have had spent many weeks sharing my opinion on what I think about the way he acts, but I must eat crow tonight. Tiberius IV is the EAW Champion! I have no problem admitting I was wrong, this guy is the real deal. We have watched Tiberius evolve from National Elite Champion, to tag team specialist to a bonafide headliner and top tier talent! Tiberius IV entered this main event against a Hall of Famer, a legend in Drastik, and he beat him on the grandest stage!

Kawajai: He did it in one hell of a match too! There was so many unbelievable moments in that match up! Those two showed almost superhuman determination! Drastik did not go down easy! He gave Tiberius IV arguably the match of his career in that contest. He almost had him there but that one hiccup, that one delay in reaction proved to be a match changing moment! A company changing moment at that! This win right here, this moment is a shift in the landscape of EAW!

WWEFan: It’s a new era , Kawa, and Tiberius IV is leading it! THIS is the night where the King has truly taken his place on the throne! Thank you guys for tuning in with us for this incredible night! We’ll see you here tomorrow for what is sure to be another spectacular show!

(Tiberius IV walks up the ramp with the EAW Championship in his hand as he lights the title up high for all to see. Fireworks shoot up behind him on the stage during his celebration as the screen fades to black.)

DAY TWO (PRE-SHOW):

(Pain For Pride Pre-Show Intro Plays)

(The camera cuts to the ring at MetLife Stadium where the Ring Announcer is shown standing in the center of the ring)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is a DIVIDE AND CONQUER MATCH! The rules are as follows: Each team made up of five participants will square off under normal rules until an entire team is eliminated. Eliminations can occur by pinfall, submission, countout and disqualification. Once one team remains, we proceed to phase two, an elimination match featuring the members of the surviving team. The match continues until there is ONE survivor!

(The crowd rises to its feet as “God of Waar” plays with Stephanie Matsuda sporting her trademark bandanna and hoodie combo leading her team to the ring.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing Team Number One…..JESSICA QUINN, MEI HATSUKYO, AMELIE LARRIEUX, JESSICA QUINN AND THE TEAM CAPTAIN….STEPHANIEEEEEEEEEEE MATSUUUUUDAAAAA!

StarrStan: Welcome back to Metlife Stadium fans, it’s DAY 2 of Pain for Pride and we have a barnburner here on the preshow as we have an Empire exclusive Divide and Conquer match and the stakes could not be higher, SG1!

SG1: That’s right, Stan. We crowned a new Women’s World Champion and Tarah Nova took the Empire General Manager position by force; the sole survivor here today will become the #1 Contender to the EAW Women’s World Championship that Aria Jaxon managed to win last night.

(As Matsuda and her team get situated on their half of the ring, “Pet” by A Perfect Circle plays as Alexis Diemos, Jocelyn Diemos, and Madison Kaline, sporting heavily taped ribs and a slight limp, come out, followed by a reluctant Savannah Sunshine and a nonchalant April Song.)

Ring Announcer: And their opponents…SAVANNAH SUNSHINE, APRIL SONG….And representing the Sanatorium: JOCELYN DEIMOS, MADISON KALINE…THE TEAM CAPTAIN ALEXIS DIEMOS….THE COOOOOOOOVENNNN!

SG1: Madison looks to be a bit worse for wear after last night.

StarrStan: Yup. For those of you who missed Day 1, Madison did her damnedest to try to help her beau Keelan Centrich win the Cash in the Vault match but her efforts were unsuccessful as Nico Borg picked up a win. Maybe she and the rest of the Coven will have better luck tonight.

SG1: I’m still disturbed by what happened last night. That bit with Cailin Dillon….I’m really concerned about the safety of everyone on Empire as long as these four sadistic women remain on the loose.

(The teams all square off in the center of the ring, the two team captains nose to nose before being ushered back into their respective corners. Stephanie points out Amelie Larrieux to start for her team while Savannah Sunshine volunteers to start the match for hers with neither the Coven or April objecting.)

(DING DING DING!!!)

SG1: And here we go. Amelie and Savannah start things off for their erspective teams and we get a collar and elbow tie up, Amelie manages a go behind but gets immediately caught with an elbow to the face! Savannah comes in with a clothesline and takes Amelie down! Amelie springs right back up but Savannah hits her with a dropkick! So far so good for Team Matsuda!
Starr Stan: Amelie goes up looking for a roundhouse that misses wildly and Savannah staggers her into a neutral corner with another dropkick! Irish whip into another corner and a STINGER SPLASH! Savannah looking pretty strong so far, much to the delight of Savannah’s friend Jocelyn! The other members of the team don’t look as enthusiastic though.

SG1: Amelie rolls outside of the ring and tries to collect herself, Stephanie and herself exchanging words. Matsuda imparting the sage-like wisdom of kick her ass…..SAVANNA USING THE DISTRACTION TO LAUNCH HERSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE! GERONIMOOOOOOO!

Starr Stan: DENIED! AMELIE COUNTERED WITH A GUTBUSTER! Jocelyn looking on concerned as the Frenchwoman ushers Savannah back into the ring. Grabbing her in a headlock she pulls the weakened young rookie into the corner and tags out with the team captain herself, Stephanie “Cloud” Matsuda. Matsuda wasting little time…..CLOUD CITY ALREADY AFTER AMELIE RELEASES THE HEAD LOCK!

ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

(The camera catches Jocelyn looking to intervene but being held back by Alexis.)

THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING DING DING!!!)

Ring Announcer: Savannah Sunshine is ELIMINATED!

StarrStan: Well damn, that didn’t take long.

(Savannah rolls out of the ring as Jocelyn jumps off the apron to take a look at her to see if she’s injured. Savannah nods her head and motions for Jocelyn to rejoin her team.)

SG1: You notice something there, right? The Coven and April Song let Savannah suffer her fate alone. There are teammates today here, but only to an extent! We’re already seeing some of the strategy of divide and conquer play out.

StarrStan: Matsuda is already jawing at her former “Sisters” turned rivals, but tags in an enthusiastic Revy who goes into the ring to meet April Song, replacing the eliminated Savannah.

(Before the two move any further, April and Revy quickly salute each other before tying up in the center of the ring.)

StarrStan: A little military appreciation here at Pain for Pride, the two of them former members of the US military. Revy a former US Army sniper as she revealed and April a former Air Force pilot. Song getting the better of the tie up and now has Revy face first in the mat…April looking to apply a crossface but Revy escapes and takes April down by the leg! Revy’s on top of April now, trying to land a few strikes but April not really bothered as she covers up and uses her feet to push Revy off before kipping up to her feet!

SG1: The two of them tie up again and now Revy has a wrist lock, pulling on it and causing April some pain and difficulty. April being the submissions whiz she is counters into a wristlock of her own, which Revy acrobatically escapes from and the two stand off in the center of the ring, a stalemate!

StarrStan: Both of these talented young ladies retreating and now we see them tag out. Alexis Diemos coming in for her team and Jessica Quinn coming out for hers! Quinn coming out and landing some hard forearms and kicks and chops, peppering the Mother of the Sanatorium and Team captain with blows that leave her staggering! Jocelyn is cheering Alexis on but everyone else seems a bit shocked!

SG1: Jessica Quinn looking pretty sharp here in the early going and Alexis looks like she may be in danger of an early exit! Irish whip by Quinn as she runs into the ropes, missing with a clothesline as Alexis stops and Quinn goes into the ropes again…MOTHERS WOMB! ALEXIS NAILS MOTHERS WOMB AS SHE HOOKS THE LEG, STARING MATSUDA DEAD IN THE EYES!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(DING DING DING!!)

Ring Announcer: Jessica Quinn is eliminated!

StarrStan: It’s team captains leading by example so far, eight women left to go and four apiece left for each after Alexis disposes of Jessica. Alexis is remaining in the ring, still having not taken her eyes off Matsuda, but it’s the Young Tigress, Mei Hatsukyo who comes in for Matsuda’s side!

SG1: Mei’s looking ready for a fight but Alexis looks like this is a joke to her. Amused, but the amusement doesn’t last long as she goes in for a clothesline, Mei rolls out of the way….SPRINGBOARDING OFF THE ROPES TO NAIL THE EASTERN STAR KICK! Mei looking to pull a monumental upset as she measures Alexis…Knee strike right to the gut and now Alexis is trapped in the corner…AND THAT’S A VERY BAD PLACE TO BE…MACHINE GUN CHOPS……ONE AFTER THE OTHER, REDDENING ANY EXPOSED SKIN AT THE CHEST OF ALEXIS! AND THEN SHE FINISHES WITH A FOREARM STRIKE RIGHT TO THE FACE!

StarrStan: Mei a house of fire here as she sprints into the ropes…but gets cut off with a vicious kick to the back by April Song! April came will out of her corner to land that well placed kick and the referee is admonishing her as she quickly makes her way back!

SG1: It seems like April really is a team player today with the coven. That moment in time bought by April for Alexis gives her plenty of time to nail the former JET star with a Samoan drop! Alexis gets up to her feet quickly and tags in Jocelyn. Probably the most unstable of the Coven members, just to me. She looks pretty happy that she’s got something nice to play with as she pulls Mei up by the hair….A VICIOUS TOSS…BY THE HAIR!

StarrStan: She’s literally trying to snatch edges in here today.

SG1: Leave jokes that were meant for a generation behind you in 2016. Jocelyn moving to the apron as Mei struggles mightily to get up to her feet. Jocelyn even pointing out Cloud and giving her a sarcastic little wave with a glare, Matsuda says some stuff that….is probably best left unrepeated.

StarrStan: SG1, it looks like she’s going to try to put away Mei with a move that Cloud taught her….the Straight to Heaven forearm! Jocelyn steadies herself as Mei makes it up to her feet! STRAIGHT TO HEAVEN THAT’S COUNTERED WITH A FLASH KICK! BEAUTIFUL!

SG1: Alexis and Madison are rushing into the ring to try to help their sister but Matsuda’s team bulrushes the ring, April Song watching as Matsuda takes down Madison and ushers her out and Revy and Amelie take down Alexis with a double-team dropkick! Mei up to her feet first, measuring Jocelyn…..EVEREST TIGER SUPLEX! JOCELYN TRYING TO KICK FREE BUT HER SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

(DING DING DING!!!)

Ring Announcer: Jocelyn Diemos is eliminated!

StarrStan: And now the first member of the Coven is eliminated and once again the advantage is squarely in the Matsuda camp! Only Alexis, April and Madison remain for their team, and now Madison and Alexis are dangerously close to taking out April themselves! They didn’t appreciate getting left out to dry there!

SG1: April is in the ring now with two angry Coven members in her corner. Mei remains in the match and is immediately greeted by a vicious forearm from April that sends her to a knee! Mei responds with a punch to the stomach but April is unrelenting as she nails her with a kick to the midsection in trade. Song showing a more pragmatic approach tonight, but her wrestling is still as dangerous as ever as she takes down Mei with a snap suplex! Quick lateral press looking to score a pinfall to even the match up again!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

StarrStan: Mei emphatically kicks out! Song not wasting any time though as she locks in a sleeper hold! Cloud trying to urge her friend up to a vertical face, the rest of her team, save for Amelie cheering her on while the blonde rolls her eyes in disgust! Mei is trying to get going, she’s feeling the energy as she rises to a vertical base despite how tightly April has the hold clenched in! An elbow to the midsection of Song, followed by a second and a third that was hard enough to break the hold! Mei goes sprinting into the ropes and takes down Song with a colossal lariat! April knocked for a loop but she’s back up to her feet as Mei goes for a Discus Lariat!
SG1: BUT SHE WHIFFS AND GETS CAUGHT IN THE REAR NAKED CHOKE! SONG LIKE A SHARK SMELLING BLOOD AS SHE LOCKS IN THE HOLD AND MEI IS JUST INCHES FROM THE ROPES! MAYBE AN ARM OR LEG TO REACH OUT AND SAVE HERSELF! THE CROWD IS URGING HER ON, TRYING TO GIVE HER THE STRENGTH TO REACH THOSE ROPES….BUT SHE CAN’T! SHE TAPS OUT AND APRIL SONG EVENS THE MATCH AGAIN!

(DING DING DING!)

Ring Announcer: Mei Hatsukyo is eliminated.
StarrStan: We are back even again as Mei rolls out of the ring to some applause from the fans at ringside. She showed some guts here but she’s heading to the back. April stands tall in the ring and Amelie comes in. These two have quite the history, having gone against each other in their debuts and during the first round of the Specialists number one contender tournament. Amelie won the first time but April has had the upper hand ever since.

SG1: April looks to try a takedown but Amelie is prepared and catches her with a KNEE RIGHT TO THE JAW! APRIL’S OWN MOMENTUM NEARLY KILLS HER THERE!

StarrStan: April’s in trouble…that was a mean shot….

(The replay shows April looking or a takedown but being hit in the face with a vicious knee strike from Amelie, nearly knocking her out cold.)

SG1: The referee checking on her to see if she’s okay and she nods her head, he’s going to let her continue and I have to say I’m concerned! Concussions are no joke! We’ve seen what they can do to the careers of elitists and athletes in general. April barely able to get up to her feet. AMELIE CONNECTS WITH BEND IT AS SOON AS SHE DOES! APRIL MAY BE OUT NOW AS AMELIE GOES FOR THE PINFALL!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

TWOOOOOOOOOOOO

StarrStan: NO! April was barely able to get a shoulder up, but she got it up and stays alive! Amelie not wasting any time as she looks for Not So Angelic, but April counters it with a back body drop! I really don’t think she knows where she is as she staggers into the wrong corner and eats a vicious elbow to the face from Cloud Matsuda herself! Amelie takes advantage and hits a beautiful bridging German Suplex!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
!
THRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE

SG1: NO! APRIL KICKED OUT AGAIN AND AMELIE IS UP AND INCENSED WITH THE REFEREE!

StarrStan: This is a rookie mistake! She’s got to stay focused here and take out April! Whoever gets the 3-2 advantage here will be in great shape to advance to the second phase! April is struggling to get to her feet but she does near her corner. Amelie grabs her, Irish whip!

(As Amelie whips April, Madison quickly taps her on the shoulder, indicating there was a tag.)

SG1: April sprints into the ropes and Amelie is preparing to attack…….Cloud trying to turn her attention to Madison from behind…ITS TOO LATE THOUGH! AFTERLIFE! THAT HELLACIOUS CLOTHESLINE SPINS AMELIE INSIDE OUT! Madison with the cover!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING DING DING!!)

Ring Announcer: Amelie Larrieux is Eliminated!

StarrStan: Now it’s getting to be dangerous for Matsuda’s team. Most of her unit is eliminated and she begins to step in, but Revy offers to go in, instead and she sprints to face Madison who tries a clothesline but Revy ducks and sprints into the ropes and lands a Thesz press! For good measure she grabs Madison by the throat and starts choking and choking, slamming her head against the mat before the referee can break it up!

SG1: That certainly won’t help Maddie’s ribcage, having a little nutcase drop her weight on it! Revy pulling Madison up by the hair and looking to nail a back suplex and she does! Masterfully done! She’s going up to the ropes and lands an elbow drop from the turnbuckles! She’s on fire here as she waits for Madison to get up….SHOOT KICKS TO THE CHEST AND LEG, PEPPERING THE FORMER VIXENS CHAMPION! Maddie composes herself and rises up to her feet, despite all those kicks! BUT REVY KICKS HER IN THE HEAD THIS TIME AND MADISON FALLS TO THE CANVAS! SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!

StarrStan: Madison kicks out! Barely! Revy a little irritated as she leans against the ropes, waiting for Madison to get up, measuring her…she goes in looking for the shooting peach as Madison gets up…but MADISON CATCHES HER IN MIDAIR, SHOWING OFF SOME OF THAT FAMOUS STRENGTH AND HITS A PERFECT GERMAN SUPLEX OUT OF IT! MY GOD!

SG1: That’s freakishly strong.

StarrStan: You’re damn right it is! And now Alexis in to pick off the scraps after Maddie was able to scramble for the tag, her ribs giving her a bit more trouble than she may be letting on! And now Alexis in the ring, taunting Matsuda by holding out Revy’s arm, teasing a tag. These two have had long, bloody wars but today it’s about the Women’s World Championship, but Alexis not forgetting to remind Cloud of all the suffering she’s inflicted….BUT REVY BREAKS AWAY, ROLLING OVER TO MATSUDA FOR THE TAG!

SG1: Alexis immediately regretting her hubris as she’s taken down by a lariat from Matsuda! April Song comes in and is the recipient of a belly to belly suplex! Executed crisply! Madison comes in but is dropkicked out of the ring by Matsuda. She turns her attention back to Alexis but Alexis is ready with a European uppercut that staggers Matsuda followed by a running big boot that takes her off her feet!

(On the outside, April goes over to help Madison up who pushes her away, April responds with a shove of her own and the two stand nose to nose, ready to fight.)

StarrStan: And now we’ve gotsome dissention in Camp Alexis as April and Madison are about ready to throw blows…REVY IS UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE THOUGH…REVY WITH A SENTON THAT WIPES OUT BOTH! Alexis is livid inside the ring, cursing at April and Madison with equal anger….CLOUD IS BEHIND HER AND ALEXIS IS COMPLETELY CAUGHT OFF GUARD! DRAGON SUPLEX!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING DING DING!!!)

Ring Announcer: Alexis Diemos is Eliminated!

SG1: Alexis can’t believe it, she’s beside herself but the referee is telling her it’s time to go! It will be two on two now as the team Captain Cloud Matsuda keeps her team alive! She takes out her long time nemesis and waves a very sarcastic goodbye, smiling and posing in the corner as Madison rolls in the ring!

StarrStan: The time for smiling and good feelings is over, I think. Madison is hurting…but she is not in the least happy with anyone left in this match. Madison charges over at Stephanie but Madison smartly targets the ribs, landing a few punches of her own! April not really in much better condition, staggering in the corner, eyes glossy but still reaching out for a tag if Madison can make it over! She can’t as Matsuda uses a smart take down and tags in Revy!

SG1: Revy stomping away at those injured ribs, sensing her chance to maybe score the biggest win of her career and leave April Song all alone on a very dangerous island! Revy pulls Madison up to her feet…looking for a gutbuster….BUT MADISON COUNTERS WITH A DDT!

StarrStan: That was another smooth move from the Mistress of death, Revy is helpless as……huh…Madison showing off her wrestling acumen with a La Magistral cradle!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING DING DING!!!!)

Ring Announcer: Revy has been eliminated!

SG1: A little surprising to see that move in Madison’s arsenal at all, a very graceful move from a more power-driven styled wrestler like herself. It’s impressive though and I guess that DDT rattled Revy enough for it to be effective.

StarrStan: Now it’s down to some serious business as Madison and April stand alone on their side of the ring, Cloud coming in as the last remaining member of her team. Madison is hurt, clutching her ribs a bit but Cloud shakes her head.

Stephanie: (No Mic, Pointing to April) Not yet……tag that bitch in first.

SG1: Uh-oh…April doesn’t look to be in any condition to be fighting to be honest but she’s standing, glaring daggers at Matsuda as Madison weighs her options. April has her hand out, screaming at Madison to tag her in!

(Madison shrugs, muttering “Suit yourself” to April and lightly tapping her outstretched hand.)

StarrStan: Cloud and April are going to get what they want as they go face to face. These two have met in singles competition before. Matsuda won easily you have to say, but April has improved rapidly the last few months. There’s a lot of smacktalking going on as their foreheads are pressed together. Matsuda’s had enough and now the both of them are exchanging punches in the center of the ring! Back and forth we go!

SG1: Matsuda is getting the better of it! I know April’s not in the best shape right now physically but there’s no way she can win a battle like this with the War Queen! She’s got to try to out wrestle her!

StarrStan: The blows are coming much faster and more frequent from Matsuda as April is starting to stagger Madison takes her down with a huge lariat that sends April crashing to the canvas! Song is in trouble! Matsuda with a throat slash motion as she lifts April
up….NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX…..AND NOW MATSUDA COMPLETES THE COMBINATION WITH A BRAINBUSTER! AURORA BOREALIS!

SG1: Matsuda is enjoying this…..OH COME ON…HOW IS THAT FOR A FLASH BACK…SHE ROLLS APRIL OUT OF THE RING WITH HER FOOT, JUST LIKE SHE DID AFTER SHE BEAT HER ON EMPIRE A FEW MONTHS AGO! The crowd loves it, but I think she should have finished off Song right then and there!

StarrStan: The lack of respeck……

SG1: Stop it.

StarrStan: Madison doesn’t seem all that surprised or enthused, just grateful to have a rest before the end of this match I suppose! Matsuda is propping herself on the ring ropes as well, yawning as the referee begins his count!

ONEEEEEEEEEEE

TWOOOOOOOOOOOO

THREEEEEEEEEE

SG1: April is barely moving. I don’t know if she can make it!

FOURRRRRRRRR

FIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

SIXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

SEVENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

Starr Stan: She’s pulling her up and Cloud instantly hops off her rope hammock, preparing for combat.

EEEIGGGGGGGGGHT

NINEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

SG1: APRIL BEAT THE COUNT! Matsuda marches over and immediately starts putting the boots to her! Demanding that Song get up! She’s screaming, Barking at her….She slaps her across the back of the head and April responds with a vicious slap right to the face! Cloud is completely losing her cool as she smashes a forearm shot to the face, slapping April again! April doesn’t back down, responding with an elbow shot of her own! The two of them just exchanging forearms wildly in the center of the ring! Matsuda, just like before, getting the better of it! April, just like before, starting to wobble! Matsuda comes looking for one final strike. APRIL DUCKS UNDERNEATH…..A SPINNING BACK ELBOW STRIKE STRAIGHT TO THE JAW!

Starr Stan: April stunned Matsuda with that, and now a kick to the midsection from
Song……SMALL PACKAGE DRIVER!!!!! SONG SHOWING OFF A NEW WEAPON HERE!
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING DING DING!!!!)

Ring Announcer: Cloud Matsuda is Eliminated! April Song and Madison Kaline move on to phase two!

(A picture of a woozy and completely stunned Cloud Matsuda is shown as the realization slowly dawns on her that it’s over. A furious scowl on her face, she turns to meet April. The two of them are both kneeling, catching their breath, Cloud reaches out to April with her hand, her face obviously disappointed and angry but nodding. April nods and shakes the outstretched hand.)

Stephanie: Next time……

(April remains expressionless for a moment before simply smiling as Stephanie takes her leave. Then, out of nowhere, Madison charges forward with a running big boot to the back of April’s head. The crowd boos heavily in disapproval as Matsuda checks on April. The referee almost having to push Madison back into her own corner.)

SG1: WHAT A CHEAP SHOT THAT WAS! APRIL WAS IN NO POSITION TO DEFEND HERSELF!

Starr Stan: That’s right, but Madison is pretty damn smart. She got her rest earlier and now April is easy pickings after having a damn brawl with Matsuda. She could win this by forfeit if April can’t get up. April is pulling herself up as Cloud vacates the ring, being waved off by Madison who…Cloud lets know She’s number one, if you will.

SG1: Madison and April are the last two left, April barely able to stand after that cheap shot, Madison still sporting some injured ribs but frankly in far better condition! Madison immediately charges over at April and starts laying into her with punches, but April grabs her by the head and forces her into a corner…SHOULDER CHARGES TO THOSE INJURED RIBS, MADISON SCREAMING OUT IN AGONY! APRIL FINDING ANOTHER GEAR AS SHE KEEPS GOING AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN! MADISON EVEN HAS A LIGHT BIT OF BLOOD COMING OUT OF HER MOUTH!

Starr Stan: April now pulling Madison up on the top turnbuckle. Madison trying to struggle but her ribs are causing her even more pain…….What is going on here? April lifting her up in a fireman’s carry position…and she’s slowly climbing the turnbuckles…

SG1: I don’t think this is going to do Madison’s ribs any favors if I think what is about to happen is.

Starr Stan: MADISON IS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE…APRIL HAS HER STANDING ON THE TOP ROPE IN A FIREMANS CARRY….FLYING…BUSTER…DROP! A TOP ROPE GUTBUSTER FROM THE TOP! MADISON SCREAMING IN AGONY AS THOSE RIBS MAY BE DAMAGED EVEN MORE THAN BEFORE!

SG1: Madison rolled a bit further away than April may have wanted afterwards! She’s struggling a bit herself to go over and make the pin.

StarrStan: April Song is trying to get the win to complete the unlikely ascention to top contender. SHE HOOKS THE LEG!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

SG1: NO! MADISON KICKED OUT AT TWO AND NINE TENTHS!? IT CANNOT GET ANY CLOSER! APRIL IS UP! APRIL IS UP QUICKLY LOOKING FOR MADISON TO GET UP! SHE’S LOOKING TO LOCK IN PROFESSIONAL DISPOSAL ON MADISON, WHO IS REALLY STRUGGLING TO GET UP! APRIL IS THERE….MADISON PULLS THE REFEREE RIGHT INTO SONG!

Starr Stan: NEITHER OF THEM IS DOWN BUT IT BUYS MADISON ENOUGH TIME TO GET TO HER FEET….APRIL AND THE REF SEPARATE AND MADISON CATCHES HER WITH THE AFTERLIFE! A VICIOUS LARIAT TAKES DOWN SONG! MADISON ALMOST WITH TEARS OF PAIN BRIMMING IN HER EYES FALLS ON TOP OF SONG, SPENT AS SHE TRIES TO PULL A LEG BACK!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING DING DING!!!!!)

RA: HERE’S YOUR WINNER, AND THE NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP!!! MADISON KALINE!!!

SG1: AFTER ALL THAT SHE WAS PUT THROUGH, MADISON KALINE COMES OUT ON TOP HERE TONIGHT, WHAT A MATCHUP!!!

Starr Stan: April Song is beside herself, but Madison besting her once and for all, and now Madison is on her way to becoming the new EAW Women’s Champion!

 

(Commercial Break)

(Camera transitions back to the ring with the Ring Announcer in the center of it)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for….THE EAWWW….HAARRDDDCOREE CHAAAMPIOONNSSSHHIPPPP!!!!!

(The lights in the arena go dim as a spotlight shoots up onto the stage. After a few moments of silence we hear the opening instrumental of “Four Seasons Summer Presto” by Vivaldi. As that happens a parade style float comes out on stage as we see Zack Crash leading in the front while behind him is a live band playing his song. Zack Crash swings his hand back and forth leading chants of Erase as the float stops at the side of the stage and allows him to get off. He noticeably has a bag in his free hand which he puts in the corner before rolling into the ring.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Charleston, West Virginia, weighing in at 225 pounds….he is “The Next Stage of Human Evolution”……ZAAAAACCCKKKK CRAAAASSSSHHHHHHH!!!!

WWEFan: Zack Crash makes his grand entrance to Pain For Pride as he heads toward the ring for what he considers to be his destiny! For months ever since Zack Crash has been enlightened he has talked about the figures in his life who are guiding him around in EAW, telling him that great things are ahead for him. He has claimed to have had visions about this very night and in fact as shown on Voltage, has already had a case in his house made for it should he win the belt!

(“Little Violence” by Waterparks plays as the camera cuts to ABOVE the stage area, showing Ahren Fournier flying in the air in a harness with “wings” attached to his back as he descends down upon the stage. Smoke fills the air as he touches the ground and takes off his safety gear, revealing the EAW Hardcore title around his waist.)

Ring Announcer: And his opponent, making his way to the ring from Planet Fournier, weighing in at 220 pounds…..he is the EAW Hardcore Champion…..”The Crown Jewel”……AHHHHREEEEEENNNN FOUUURRRNNIIIEEERRRRR!!!

Kawajai: The Trill Fairy literally flying into the arena tonight and gracing us with his presence! Calling him magical wouldn’t be a stretch as Ahren Fournier has pulled off miracle after miracle in his career here. Ahren Fournier has been the most dominant Hardcore Champion not just since it’s revival, but arguably since the belts inception! He has beaten opponents in convincing fashion to the point where people could say he is the face of Hardcore. The only thing in the way of him making that claim is the innovator of extreme Zack Crash. Ahren is a made man if he beats this legend on the Grand stage!

(Ahren Fournier kisses his belt before handing it off to the referee and allowing him to start the match.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: The bell rings and Zack Crash wastes no time, showing incredible agility as he BURSTS out of his corner and heads to Ahren’s for a splash, knocking the wind right out of the poor kid! Zack Crash is now punching away at him! Heavy strikes to Ahren as he is trying to cover up! Zack Crash came out of the gate with that attack and Ahren was not expecting it, he has no time to gather his bearings or figure out a way to react! Zack Crash switches it up with some stops to the midsection, there has been no chance for Ahren Fournier to get out of this predicament yet! Zack Crash finally takes a few steps back so he can go for something but we may never find out as Ahren Fournier rushes out of the corner to get a breather! Hold on though!

Kawajai: Zack Crash with some cat like reflexes! He sees Ahren Fournier try to get away and so he rushes toward him! Clothesline to Ahren Fournier sending him over the ropes! Ahren Fournier goes tumbling to the floor! Zack Crash smiles and claps at his own efforts as it has been all him so far! Zack Crash steps out on the apron looking to join Ahren Fournier out there but not before he turns to the crowd and leads some chants of “Erase”! EUGH! That might have been a bad idea! Our Hardcore Champion was creeping behind him and he strikes with the sweep of the legs!

WWEFan: Zack Crash fell hard onto the edge of the apron! What a nasty fall! Ahren Fournier stays on Zack Crash, seeing him stirring and grabbing his hand to help him to his feet. Wait, why is he doing that — OH! Ahren using that hand to Irish whip Zack Crash into the steel steps! Zack Crash hit the steps so hard that they turned over on their side, geez! Our ringside area is left looking like a car crash as Ahren Fournier continues his assault! He lifts Zack Crash up in fallaway slam position but is not throwing him up overhead! No, instead he is driving Zack Crash’s body into the steel ring post!

Kawajai: What a thud! Ahren Fournier backs away to gather some momentum…AND THEN JUST DOES IT AGAIN! Ahren Fournier now takes the body of Zack Crash and SWINGS it into the barricade! Ahren Fournier finally drops Zack Crash onto his own two feet but after all of that he damn sure can not stand on his own! Ahren Fournier grabs him by the abdomen! BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX ONTO THE FLOOR! Ahren showing some great strength by throwing around a guy of Crash’s size! That move has added damage, no pun intended, as it is being done on the outside! Zack Crash is just on the ground, writhing in pain as Ahren Fournier stands up, pats his elbow to tease him…AND THEN DROPS IT DOWN UPON HIM! AHREN STAYS ON TOP OF CRASH’S BODY! COVER BY AHREN FOURNIER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

WWEFan: Zack Crash gets the shoulder up and he saves this match! Ahren Fournier lets out a shout of frustration, delusionally telling the referee he had Crash down for a three. After all of the games Zack Crash has played on him Ahren Fournier just wants to beat him and be done with it! Ahren Fournier walks up to a fan who has been booing him and SNATCHES the drink right out of the guy’s hand! The fan has to be restrained as Ahren holds that cup up….AND POURS IT DOWN ONTO ZACK CRASH’S HEAD! The soda is all over Zack Crash as he is sputtering and also wiping away at his eyes!

Kawajai: A punch right between the eyes is done by Ahren Fournier for good measure! Zack Crash falls against the crowd restraint as the audience is patting him on the back and cheering him on! They are urging him to make a comeback as OH! RUNNING KNEE BY AHREN FOURNIER CATCHING HIM IN THE JAW WHILE HE WAS LEANED UP AGAINST THAT BARRICADE! The barrier almost fell over onto the fans from how hard Ahren ran and the champ doesn’t seem to care! Ahren Fournier now steps onto the apron and turns his back to Zack Crash. Ahren Fournier looks over his shoulders rather cautiously as he grips the ropes…aannnddd…..

WWEFan: AND A SPRINGBOARD BY AHREN, BOUNCING OFF OF THE TOP ROPE AND THEN FLYING ON TOP OF ZACK CRASH WHO WAS ON THE OUTSIDE WITH A MOONSAULT! Ahren Fournier is raining down punches now, shot after shot as he is on top of Zack Crash! Ahren Fournier is going and going until he finally gets up in a huff! Ahren Fournier is heading over to the time keeper’s area and going for a steel chair! He pushes the ring announcer to the ground and takes the one he was sitting on, folding it up and then heading back to Zack Crash! Ahren Fournier is testing his swing….BATTER UP!!!

Kawajai: A HARD SWING WITH THE CHAIR AS IT CRASHES INTO ZACK CRASH’S FLESH! Zack Crash falls over as Ahren Fournier hits him again! Zack Crash is trying to crawl away but Ahren Fournier steps on one of his hands to keep him from moving and then boots him in the face! Ahren Fournier heads over to the steel steps and starts to put them back to where they once were. Once he finishes re-placing them in their proper position he walks up them and stands over Zack Crash with the steel chair in hand! Oh no, do not tell me! AHREN FOURNIER JUMPS OFF OF THE STEEL STEPS FOR A MAJOR DOWN SWINGING CHAIR SHOT!

WWEFan: DROPKICK! ZACK CRASH DELIVERS A DROPKICK AT THE LAST SECOND TO STOP AHREN FOURNIER’S LEAP! AHREN FOURNIER DROPS THE STEEL CHAIR AND IS HOLDING HIS GUT! Zack Crash grabs the steel chair and tosses it away! He wants nothing to do with it as instead he’d like to deal with Ahren Fournier personally! He grabs Ahren Fournier…AND SLAMS HIM INTO THE STEEL STEPS WITH A SIDE EFFECT! MY GOD THAT WAS BRUTAL! AHREN FOURNIER FOLDING UP OVER THE STEEL STEPS AS HE ROLLS OVER AND FALLS OFF, CRINGING IN PAIN!

Kawajai: Zack Crash walks around the steel steps and again grabs Ahren Fournier, slamming his head into the steel steps again and again! Zack Crash chants every time Ahren Fournier’s head hits those steps!

Zack Crash: (w/o mic) ERASE! ERASE! ERASE! ERASE!

Kawajai: Ahren Fournier fights back and shoves his elbow directly into Zack Crash’s midsection! He turns to Zack Crash looking for a fight but before he can do anything ZACK CRASH STARTS BITING HIS FOREHEAD! ZACK CRASH IS SINKING HIS TEETH INTO FOURNIER AS FOURNIER DOES WHAT HE CAN TO PUSH HIM AWAY! AN ENZUIGIRI TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD STUNS CRASH! Ahren Fournier now rolls back into the ring to get some distance! He takes a walk around the perimeter, catching his breath while he watches Zack Crash recover from afar! Zack Crash finally tries to get into the ring but Ahren Fournier is there waiting for him! Crash was trying to get into the ring through the middle rope but Fournier kicked it and it hit Crash right in the throat! Ahren Fournier pulls Zack Crash in now….AND DELIVERS A ROPE HUNG DDT!

WWEFan: Ahren Fournier gets on top of Zack Crash for a cover but Zack Crash is already moving and can’t keep his shoulders placed on the mat. Ahren Fournier is getting frustrated here. He has Zack Crash up, looking to go for the brainbuster, but no! Zack Crash gets behind him and attempts to push him down for the Crash N Burn! Ahren Fournier flips him over onto his back though! Zack Crash rolls through and shoots to his feet! Ahren Fournier runs at him — but he takes him down with a spear, tearing right through him! Zack Crash heads over to a corner of the ring now and begins climbing! Zack Crash is at the top rope….AND THERE HE GOES WITH A MOONSAULT OF HIS OWN, FLYING RIGHT ON TOP OF AHREN FOURNIER! ZACK CRASH HOOKS THE LEG!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…..TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…..THRRRR —

Kawajai: NO! Ahren Fournier gets the shoulder up! Zack Crash does not seem too bothered by it though. He goes about his business and plots out his next move. He walks over to the corner where that little personal bag of his was placed! He takes the bag and empties it out into the ring….IT’S A MIXTURE OF GLASS AND BARBED WIRE! ZACK CRASH HAS THAT LAID OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS HE HEADS OVER TO AHREN FOURNIER TO FINISH HIM OFF!

WWEFan: HOLD ON THOUGH! LOW BLOW! A BLATANT LOW BLOW AT THAT BY AHREN FOURNIER AS THE REF CAN DO NOTHING TO STOP IT DUE TO HARDCORE RULES! Zack Crash is slumped over as Ahren Fournier places him between his knees and lifts him up in crucifix position…..CRUCIFIX POWERBOMB INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! A RING SHAKING MOVE DELIVERED BY FOURNIER! Zack Crash is on spaghetti legs as he walks right into Ahren Fournier! Kick to the leg, taking Zack Crash to a knee! A SUPERKICK BY FOURNIER!

Kawajai: Zack Crash is kneeling over in pain and at Ahren Fournier’s mercy! Ahren Fournier hits those ropes, he is going for the kill shot….THE STORY BOOK ENDING! STORY BOOK ENDING CURB STOMP BY FOURNIER!

WWEFan: ZACK CRASH MOVED! CRASH MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AND AHREN STEPS RIGHT INTO THE BARBED WIRE! HIS LEG IS CAUGHT IN THAT WIRING MAKING IT HARD FOR HIM TO MOVE AS ZACK CRASH IS USING THE ROPES TO PULL HIMSELF UP! ZACK HITS HIM IN THE FACE AND PULLS HIM IN!

Kawajai: CRAAAAASSSHHHHH COOUUUURSSSEEEE!!! ZACK WITH THE CRASH COURSE THROUGH THE GLASS AND BARBED WIRE, PLANTING AHREN FOURNIER! ZACK CRASH HOOKS BOTH LEGS AS THE REFEREE DROPS DOWN TO COUNT IT!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Four Seasons Summer Presto” plays as Zack Crash jumps up in disbelief, moving around the ring happily while he waits for the referee to walk toward him and hand him the title.)

Ring Announcer: The winner of this match….ANNNDDDD NEWWWW HARDCORE CHAMPION…..ZAAAAAAAAAAACCCCKKK CRASSSSHHHH!!!

WWEFan: Zack Crash did it! Nero Maxwell and the Gods above were right about this night! After a season full of troubles and rediscovery, the damaged one is a champion in EAW and has done so on the grandest stage of them all! He slayed the dragon and beat the unbeatable champion Ahren Fournier!

Kawajai: I am SHOCKED but excited at the same time! This has been a long time coming. Zack Crash has been through alot this year but through it all he remained confident in the powers that be, he believed in the visions told to him and just as he predicted, the belt returned to his hands! Zack Crash: Hardcore Champion. A fitting belt for one of the pioneers here in EAW!

(Zack Crash heads up the ramp celebrating with his band as he points up in the air, thanking “Nero Maxwell” for the victory.)

( http://imgur.com/Kr5Dz9Y )

(The camera cuts to ringside as the Ring Announcer looks over to the crowd, a wide smile on her face.)

RA: The following match is a SUBMISSION MATCH! And it is for the SPECIALIST CHAMPIONSHIP! In this match the winner of the match must force their opponent to pass out or tap out!

(The scene transitions to the titantron, as an image of a Spanish Villa can be seen. The camera moves inside the house, and the sight of Consuela, in a maid uniform, can be seen, scrubbing the ceramic tiling of the kitchen floor with a toothbrush. Pine Sol and a broom can be seen to her right as she continues to scrub, mumbling to herself in Spanish. She continues to scrub away as the clicking of heels can be heard, and the ‘Master’ of the house enters in, wearing a Cat-Woman esque leather suit. She smiles with a calm arrogance about her, and the music that picks up is a dead ringer for sappy Spanish Soap Operas. Cheesy, but just right.)

‘Master’ (In spanish): Oh Consuela, look at you. On the floor like a dog, scrubbing my floors like a good little maid. Which is where you belong. Not in a wrestling ring, spoiling the show with your pathetic performance.

(Consuela tries to ignore her, as she wets the toothbrush in the soap bucket before continuing to scrub the tile.)

‘Master’: After all, you’ve done nothing but prove that you are an embarrassment to the Ava name. Your sister Cameron is the best out of the family, and you, you barely play a role other than to be in her shadow. You’ll never be like her.

You have the weakest of moves, the worst of voices, the most pathetic looks, all in all you’re a flabby excuse for a Woman, let alone a wrestler.

(Consuela closes her eyes tight, trying to block out the words. Floating images of Brody Sparks trash talking her and beating her down float around her head (also in cheesy soap opera ways) before Consuela slams her fist on the ground, crying in an oh so dramatic fashion.)

‘Master’: Oh, did I hurt the little Ava’s feelings? You gonna cry?

(The Master kicks over the soap bucket, spilling the water all over the floor. The music swells as Consuela raises her head, grabbing at the master and throwing her against the wall. Consuela continues to throw her around, the master trying to get a hand raised for a strike, but is blocked at all times by Consuela, who eventually throws her through the glass door. As the master attempts to crawl away Consuela picks up the broom, walking behind her. The camera focuses on the wall as a loud thud is heard, followed by a snap of the broom.

A black screen appears before coming back on as Consuela can be seen stuffing the body of the ‘Master’ into a freezer. She turns around, wiping her hands as text appears just underneath her: CONSUELA ROSE AVA IS THE MAID!

The scene cuts back to the arena as “Exotic” by Priyanka Chopra ft. Pitbull plays. Consuela Rose Ava confidently walks out, looking at the crowd who are all chanting: MAID over and over as she smiles to them. She bobs her head to the music before raising her arms, yellow pyro going off…with a hint of the smell of Pine Sol wafting through the arena.)

RA: Introducing first!!! From Frias, Spain! She is The Maid! CONSUELA!!! ROSE!!! AVA!!!

SG1: And the winner of the Specialist Tournament, Consuela Rose Ava finally gets her shot at Brody Sparks here tonight! She has waited a long time for this moment, and now that it’s here, it all comes down to this moment. It’s all or nothing for her. Which is where we’ve seen her show her greatest moments.

Starr: Consuela has had her share of moments of glory, but this is her first real taste of greatness here at Pain for Pride. And that is possibly one of the scariest things to her. Imagine, for a moment, just what she is thinking of at this very moment. She saw her sister pinned here, yesterday! And now she has to fight against one of the best Specialist Champions in EAW history. But, if there is anyone that might be able to take that belt off of her, it’s Consuela.

SG1: Consuela has competed in her share of Submission matches, and with that knowledge comes its own share of danger. A submission match may seem like it benefits her, but it also heavily limits what kind of moves that you can perform. Starr, can you give us insight into what a submission match requires.

Starr: It requires a lot more direct targeting of a limb then normal matches. In regular matches, your moves can come from anywhere and can be any mix of maneuvers, but in a submission match everything has to be calculated. One wrong move and you could be countered into something that you can’t fight out of. It’s also about measuring your stamina, making sure that everything is going good and according to plan.

(The lights dim to a pale blue as Consuela slides into the ring. An icy wind seems to blow through the arena as a sheet of ice blocks the entrance way. “How did I survive the Apocalyptic fire? I chose not to feel the flames.” Is whispered through the speakers as the wall of ice bursts with pyro, Brody Sparks standing in the center of the ramp. She cracks her neck, staring straight at Consuela as “RX Queen” by Deftones plays. She strides down the ramp, the ramp itself chilling over with her every step as she holds up the Specialist title.)

RA: And her opponent! From Seattle, Washington! She is the Specialist Champion! BRODY! SPARKS!

SG1: Brody Sparks has held the Specialist Title, unquestioned, since Road to Redemption! This makes her the longest reigning Specialist Champion in EAW History! Brody Sparks has come to her own in EAW, and has been a threat since she challenged for the title. And Consuela knows this. Brody has showed zero signs of fear since she learned that Consuela was going to be her challenge, and has tormented the poor girl since she started.

Starr: Brody knows that her confidence is one of her biggest strengths. She has the ability to torture her opponents in ways that other people can’t. And Brody isn’t a stranger to submission moves herself. This is a fight between two kinds of locks. Consuela has her modified inverted STF, the Ava Lock. She needs to put as much pressure on the neck and back of Brody. Brody Sparks has the Illumination, that Rings of Saturn, which means her focus has to remain on the back and ribs of Consuela. But those are just their known moves. They could pull out something entirely new here.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

SG1: Well that’s the bell, and this match is officially underway. Brody giving up the height advantage here, which she’s used to, but don’t count her out due to her size. Brody circling Consuela here as Consuela tries to find her own opening. Consuela seems to find it and goes for the legs of Brody, but that’s a center of gravity advantage that she has. Brody scooting away from the dive and delivering a hard kick to the jaw of Consuela. Consuela falling to the ground and sliding back, as Brody quickly follows her, delivering another stiff kick to the chest of Consuela.

Starr: Brody throwing more kicks now, forcing Consuela into the turnbuckle! Brody with more rapid fire kicks and finishing off her routine with one final kick right to the jaw of Consuela before being forced to back up by the ref. Brody backing away before charging forward, racing straight in and delivering a knee to the jaw of Consuela, now stomping away at her as well, and the ref pulling her back again.

Brody: I HAVE TILL FIVE, (censored) OFF!!

SG1: Brody once again shoving the ref aside and stomping down at Consuela, doing as much damage to those ribs as possible. The ref getting to four and now Brody backing away with a shake of her head, staring down at Consuela as the ref checks on her. Brody is being smart here, trying to keep Consuela away from a vertical base, and doing damage to the ribs. Brody allowing Consuela some time to breath and charging right back at her, delivering a hard knee right to the ribs of Consuela. Consuela coughing again as Brody throws more painful knees, letting the ref get to 4 before again retreating away, raising her arms.

Starr: Brody using these 5 counts to her advantage with sickening results here. Brody backing up a few steps and returns for another knee but this time Consuela catches her, back elbow right to the jaw of Brody. Brody shaking her head and now Consuela has her chance in this match. Consuela racing forward, hooking the head and arm of Brody and twisting her around into a neckbreaker! And Cam quickly switching position, getting in a side headlock on the downed Brody. Brody though, quickly fighting her way out of it and diving in for a headlock of her own onto Consuela!!! Consuela trying to fight out of it, but Brody putting her legs onto the ropes, keeping the move locked in tight as the ref starts the count. Brody quickly pushing herself from the ropes, breaking the refs count!

SG1: This may be cheating, but Brody is doing what she can to retain her title. Her tactics won’t be well received, but they are fantastic. Brody twisting herself around in that headlock, now laying across the back of Consuela, and there is pressure on the ribs and spine! Like you said Starr, every move that Brody does is calculated to ensure maximum damage is done to the ribs and spine! Consuela finally peeling Brody’s arms off of her, and rolling her off of her back before rising to her feet, shaking the fatigue out of her system. Brody back to her feet as well, running towards her, and gets caught with a boot to the stomach! Consuela hooking the head! DDT RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING BY CONSUELA!!! AND CONSUELA KEEPING THAT HEAD HOOKED, DRAGGING BRODY BACK UP TO HER FEET AND THROWING HER ARM OVER HER SHOULDERS!!! CONSUELA, LIFTING BRODY UP AND…DROPS HER STRAIGHT DOWN IN A BRAINBUSTER!!!

Starr: Consuela not out of this match just yet! Consuela releasing her hold of Brody, getting back to her feet and going to the ropes to catch her breath. Brody though, not letting her rest for too long as she’s already starting to get to her feet, Brody up to her feet and sneaking behind Consuela, Consuela turning around into a swift knife edge chop by Brody, and Brody following it with a swift kick to the chest of Consuela, who fires back with a kick of her own to Brody’s legs! Consuela with another kick to the thigh of Brody, and this one breaks her away. Brody forced to back up and Consuela taking full advantage, charging right for her! Brody ducks the charge and leaps up, WITH A PELE KICK!!! BRODY SPARKS WITH A PELE KICK OUT OF NOWHERE, CATCHING CONSUELA RIGHT ON THE TOP OF THE SKULL! Consuela staggered and falling back against the ropes and Brody right up to her feet, running the ropes and leaping up, CROSSBODY RIGHT INTO THE RIBS OF CONSUELA WHO BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES!!! BRODY KEEPING UP HER INTENSITY WITH A DEVIOUS GLEE AS SHE RISES TO HER FEET HOLDING HER OWN RIBS!

SG1: Brody glaring down at Consuela before looking towards the turnbuckle post, a devious smile on her face! Brody sliding out of the ring, dragging Consuela across the mat towards the ring post. Wait…hold on. Brody setting up Consuela with her arms and legs hanging outside the ring lying on her side! Brody pulling the arms and legs of Consuela and…DROPS DOWN, DRIVING HER BODY INTO THE TURNBUCKLE POST RIB FIRST!!! AND BRODY HOLDING ONTO THE ARMS, JUST PRESSING HER AGAINST THE METAL POST!!! THE REF STARTING THE COUNT TO BREAK THIS HOLD UP AS BRODY SHAKES HER HEAD!

Starr: Consuela can be seen screaming in agony here, as she tries to break away from the hold. But she’s not in a good position to do much of anything about this. Brody pulling it with everything she has and now finally breaking the hold completely, dropping back as Consuela holds her ribs and back and agony. Brody shaking her head as she watches Consuela writhing on the ground as she walks around the ring, laughing to herself. Brody sliding into the ring slowly by herself as she drags Consuela back to her feet. Brody with an irish whip, sending Consuela into the corner and now Brody racing right after her, with a leaping dropkick, again targeting those ribs.

SG1: Brody maintaining her pressure on Consuela, rising slowly to her feet and throwing a slap to the face of Consuela before running her tongue along her cheek, giving her a swift kiss right after and dragging her slightly out of the corner! Brody holding her arm in a hammerlock and now lifting her up and SLAMMING HER BACK DOWN!!! GUILLOTINE HAMMERLOCK DROP!!!! BRODY DELIVERING MORE AND MORE PUNISHMENT TO THE BODY OF CONSUELA!!! BRODY HEADING OVER TO THE ROPES WITH A CONFIDENT WALK! SCALING UP TO THE TOP AND SHAKING HER HEAD AT THE FALLEN CONSUELA!!! BRODY OFF THE ROPES!!! ROUNDED MOONSAULT BY BRODY SPARKS!!!

Starr: CONSUELA MOVED OUT OF THE WAY!!! BRODY CRASHING AND BURNING ON THE MAT AS CONSUELA QUICKLY DIVES FORWARD, TRAPPING THE ARM IN A ARMBAR AND HOOKING THE HEAD!!! AVA LOCK!!! AVA LOCK!!! CONSUELA GETTING THE AVA LOCK LOCKED IN ON BRODY AND BRODY IS SCRABBLING TO GET TO THE ROPES!!! EXCELLENT AWARENESS BY CONSUELA, CALCULATING A TIME TO MOVE AND PUTTING HERSELF IN THE PERFECT POSITION TO LOCK THIS ONE IN!!! CONSUELA REARING BACK ON THE HOLD, PUTTING MORE PRESSURE ON THE BACK AND NECK OF BRODY, BUT BRODY USING IT TO HER ADVANTAGE, SIMPLY ROLLING ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE HOLD AND NOW SHE HAS A BASE TO MOVE!!!

SG1: BRODY STARTING TO GET TO HER FEET, FIGHTING OUT OF THE HOLD AS BEST SHE CAN! CONSUELA HAVING TO RELEASE THE ARM AND GET TO HER FEET HERSELF AS…BRODY IS BITING HER!!! BRODY SPARKS BITING THE HAND OF CONSUELA, AND CONSUELA RELEASING THE HOLD AS BRODY KEEPS THE BITE GOING!!! WAIT, BRODY TUGGING CONSUELA TOWARDS HER AND DROPPING DOWN!!! JAWBREAKER BY BRODY SPARKS AND HER AND CONSUELA DROP TO THE GROUND! Brody clutching at the top of her head as Consuela holds her jaw. Brody had been dominant up till now, but Consuela actually fighting Brody harder than I think Brody could have guessed. Brody starting to get to her feet, and Consuela rising up to her own feet, throwing a weak strike to the stomach of Brody. Brody responding with a strike of her own, and Consuela firing up to a fully stand, throwing heavy forearms into the jaw of Brody. Brody being rocked backwards into the ropes and whipping across the ring. Brody rebounding off and directly into an arm drag by Consuela! Brody wisely sliding out of the ring from the move, taking a breather on the outside, BUT NOT FOR LONG! CONSUELA CHARGING THE ROPES AND LEAPING OVER THE TOP ROPE!!! SUICIDE PLANCHA ONTO BRODY, SENDING HER INTO THE GROUND WITH A HARD THUD!

Starr: What a sequence of maneuvers here and Consuela rising to her feet as the audience cheers her on! Consuela shaking her head and grabbing hold of Brody, dragging her to her feet and throwing her SKULL FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE POST!! BRODY BOUNCING RIGHT OFF OF IT, BACK INTO THE ARMS OF CONSUELA WHO THROWS HER AGAINST THEM FOR A SECOND TIME!! BRODY DROPPING TO THE GROUND AND CONSUELA QUICK TO PICK HER UP AND THROW HER BACK INTO THE RING, SLIDING IN AFTER HER! Brody sporting blood currently, and that’s looking bad! There’s a cut just above her right eye, and already we can see some swelling form, but Brody still refusing to give up! Brody trying to get to her feet as Consuela races right behind her, hooking her waist and lifting her up to her feet before spinning her around, INTO A CLOTHESLINE-NO!!! BRODY DUCKING LEAPING UP AND DELIVERING A SLINGBLADE TO CONSUELA, DRIVING HER TO THE GROUND, AND NOW BOTH GIRLS HAVING A BIT OF A BREATHER HERE! The ref now moving to check on Brody’s eye, but Brody shoving his face aside, crawling over to the ropes and tugging on them, dragging herself up to a stand and shaking her head. Bleary eyed but ready. Consuela starting to get to her feet as well, but Brody is quicker! Brody running forward, and leaping right over the back of Consuela, FAMOUSER!!! FAMOUSER!!!! BRODY DRIVING CONSUELA SKULL FIRST TO THE MAT AND NOW QUICKLY LOCKING BOTH ARMS, ROLLING HER OVER AND TRAPPING THE HEAD IN A HEADLOCK! BRODY LOCKING IN THE ILLUMINATION!!! RINGS OF SATURN LOCKED IN TIGHT ON CONSUELA IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!!

SG1: BRODY FINALLY GETTING THAT MOVE LOCKED IN, AND REELING BACK AS HARD AS SHE CAN ON THE HOLD!!! CONSUELA STARTING TO FADE HERE AND THE REF DIVING IN TO CHECK ON HER! CONSUELA TRYING TO STAY CONSCIOUS, AND THE REF LIFTING THE ARM, BUT IT DROPS! SECOND RAISE AND ONCE AGAIN A DROP!!! BRODY MAY HAVE THIS WON!!! ONE MORE LIFT AND…NO!!! CONSUELA KEEPING HER ARM UP THIS TIME AS BRODY SHAKES HER HEAD, PULLING BACK HARDER NOW!!! CONSUELA THOUGH, EYES OPENED WIDE, TRYING TO FIGHT OUT AND MANAGES TO GET A KNEE ONTO THE MAT!!! CONSUELA STARTING TO GET TO HER FEET AND BRODY SHAKING HER HEAD IN FEAR, TRYING TO PUT MORE PRESSURE BUT THERE’S NO USE!!! CONSUELA IS UP TO HER FEET AND QUICKLY CHARGES TO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER!!! CONSUELA DRIVING BRODY SPINE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER AND DROPPING DOWN AS BRODY RELEASES THE HOLD!!!

Starr: Consuela starting to get to her feet again as Brody writhes on the mat, holding her spine. Consuela creating some separation between the two for now. Consuela getting her share of a breather, trying to breathe out the wear and tear on her muscles and shaking her body loose. Brody meanwhile clawing her way up to her feet, using the turnbuckle for leverage. Brody turning to face Consuela who charges right for her and flies in with a shoulder tackle, driving her shoulder right into Brody’s rib cage! Brody dropping down across the shoulder of Consuela, and Consuela rising to her feet, and carrying Brody’s draped body on her shoulders, climbing up to the second turnbuckle…Consuela what are you planning here?!

SG1: Consuela is a risk taker! Consuela likes to push the envelope! And she might be doing just that!!! Consuela letting out a long breath and NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!! NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX OFF THE SECOND ROPE TO BRODY!!! AND CONSUELA ROLLING THROUGH THE MOVE, LIFTING BRODY BACK UP AND DROPPING HER DOWN AGAIN IN A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!! WHAT A SEQUENCE OF MOVES BUT CONSUELA RISES TO A STAND AND INSTANTLY DROPS CLUTCHING THE TOP OF HER HEAD! If we can get a replay of that!

(EAW cuts to a replay of the middle rope northern lights suplex, and slowed down it becomes painfully visible that Consuela’s head hit the mat as she was on her way down.)

Starr: Oh lord! The ref checking up on her right now, and she looks pretty staggered, holding her head. Brody clutching at her ribs, and blood still coming from that cut just over her eye. Consuela nodding to the ref and the ref backing away, so I suppose she’s alright to continue this match, as Consuela rises up to her feet. Brody getting to her own feet as well, and Consuela throwing a strike right at that wound. Brody retorting with a strike of her own, and Consuela follows that with a strike! And now the two of them just trading blows back and forth, trying to outbox the other in this matchup!!! Brody getting the advantage and taking it, throwing harder and harder hits before Consuela gives a wild swing! Brody ducking under the hit and propping Consuela onto her shoulders!!! FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION!!! BRODY TOSSING HER INTO THE AIR AND DROPPING DOWN!!! DETONATION KICK!!! SEEING SPARKS CONNECTS!!!! CONSUELA THOUGH, DOESN’T GO DOWN!!! CONSUELA BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES AS BRODY STARTS TO RISE UP!!! CONSUELA FIRING OFF THE ROPES AT A HIGH SPEED!!! LA RODILLA DE LA MUERTE!!!! FLYING KNEE OF DEATH!!! BRODY’S HEAD SNAPPING BACK HARD AND HER HAND IMMEDIATELY CLASPS AT HER EYE! Hey, hey hold on! Referee has to dive in to check on her! That knee right went into that open wound on Brody’s eye and the way she’s writhing doesn’t look that good.

SG1: Brody shoving the referee away with one hand! She wants to continue this match! The ref forced to allow it, and Consuela dives right in! Consula trapping that arm of Brody’s and hooking in that STF!!! Consuela with the Ava lock, right in the middle of the ring! Consuela pulling as hard as she can and Brody is trying to crawl out of this!!! BRODY TRYING TO FIGHT THIS AS HARD AS SHE CAN! CRAWLING TO THE ROPES! CRAWLING TOWARDS WHAT SHE CAN ONLY ASSUME WOULD BE FREEDOM!! CRAWLING TOWARDS THE RETENTION OF HER TITLE!!! BRODY SCREAMING AND CRYING AS BLOOD POURS FROM THE OPEN WOUND OVER HER EYE!!! BRODY REACHING DESPERATELY FOR THE ROPES, AND CONSUELA PULLING HER AWAY FROM THEM, BENDING HER NEARLY IN HALF!!! BRODY REACHING A HAND OUT TO THE ROPES, JUST INCHES AWAY!!! HER FINGERS JUST BARELY MISSING IT!!! BRODY RAISING HER HAND HIGHER, JUST REACH A BIT FURTHER!!! JUST A BIT FURTHER!!! BRODY REACHING OUT FOR IT DESPERATELY, WANTING TO REACH IT SO BAD!!! AND CONSUELA RELEASES THE ARM AND DRAGS BRODY BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, LOCKING THE HOLD BACK IN!!! CONSUELA SAVING HERSELF IN THE MATCHUP AND BRODY SCREAMING IN AGONY ONCE AGAIN!!! BRODY RAISING HER ARM UP AND…SHE TAPS!!!! BRODY SPARKS JUST TAPPED OUT!!! IT’S OVER!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Exotic” by Priyanka Chopra ft. Pitbull plays as Consuela releases the hold, shooting up to a stand with elation as the crowd cheers for her loudly. The ref handing her the title which she clasps to herself, tears streaming down her face. The referee and other officials quickly go to check on Brody who is still holding her right eye in agony, and medical staff head to the ring.)

RA: HERE’S YOUR WINNER AND THE NEW SPECIALIST CHAMPION!!! CONSUELA ROSE AVA!!!

SG1: WHAT A WIN!!! THE REIGN OF BRODY SPARKS COMES TO AN END IN SPECTACULAR FASHION AS CONSUELA ROSE AVA RAISES THE TITLE HIGH ON THE GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL!!! BRODY SPARKS PUTTING UP A HELL OF A FIGHT BUT IN THE END, CONSUELA PULLED OUT THE WIN.

Starr: Medical staff checking in on Brody and it seems that they are going to walk with her to the back. The way she’s clutching at her face isn’t a good sign, but right now it is Consuela’s moment!!! Consuela having worked just as hard, if not harder, than everyone else to get this chance and she takes it by the horns! Consuela Rose Ava is the new Specialist Champion!!! Wow! What a moment for Empire!!!

(The camera focuses on Consuela who raises the title high, tears in her eyes as she mouths the words “I did it” to the camera.)

(The titantron flickers on as a red lit room can be seen. The swinging red lightbulb drifting side to side, slowly, following its own rhythm. As it continues to drift side to side a form becomes noticeable. The figure of Eclipse steps into focus, his eyes lowered to the ground before they lift up, a twisted smile on his face. He nods his head to the audience, respectfully noting that they are indeed listening before he looks around the room.)

Eclipse: This is my third Pain for Pride! I made my EAW Free Per View Debut at Pain for Pride, did you all know that? It was a moment that I will never forget. A moment that has been burned into my memories…and etched into my very being. I stepped onto that stage as an innocent to this company. I had done things to get into that match that people would view as unthinkable. I was considered a monster, at the early point of my career. I was an outcast. But the thing about outcasts like me is, we know and understand our positions in the world! We understand that we are never going to be looked at as anything other than what they have called us! We are outcasts! We are the forgotten children of EAW, and that is all that we will ever be! Nothing more. Nothing less. That is…until I arrived. When I arrived, the world of EAW had a mere glimpse into the abyss. And you know what people say about looking into the abyss. Sometimes…it looks back. And the abyss gazed back with a smile on its face. A smile made from the pain of this reality that we live in! A smile that echoed with the memories of children burned by their parents, scarred by knives, and torn apart by war and attrition! I become the embodiment of their suffering, and I told the world that those like me that have dealt with that their whole lives would have a voice! I told them that they would no longer have to hide their pain behind fake smiles! I told those that had their boots pressed to our necks that we weren’t going to be ignored any longer! That we were going to stand and take back what was rightfully ours! That this was our world now! And when those in power didn’t listen…I tore away what they value most, security.

(Eclipse smiles to himself as he leaned his head back, letting out a loud breath as mist seemed to leave his nose before he turned his gaze back to the camera.)

Eclipse: I took from them the thing that they value above all material possessions. I took the security that they had possessed, because people like me would always fade away. But I didn’t. I didn’t, and in fact I excelled. I welcomed the impossible challenges that were thrown at me. I welcomed every second of danger that was put in front of me. Every moment that they said: “You can’t overcome this.” I looked at with a smile and proved them wrong every time. Because they wanted to stop me. They wanted to stop the oncoming storm of those that they had pushed down for so long. I took the crown that was designed for Kings of choice. Kings that could represent them in the sense of marketing, not for what was right or wrong. I took that crown and they tried to stop me then! They thought that giving me a moniker: The Outcast King would make me fall, but it gave everyone else a name for the voice! They believed separating me from my family would stop the message but all it did was spread it! It spread my virus. It spread my brainwashing as they call it! The brainwashing! The brainwashing of the lies that had been drilled in your head for weeks on end! I took that from them! I took a title from a man who had proclaimed himself above humanity. And I took it from him, and I took from him his control over Voltage. My family ruled Voltage. My family ruled Empire. And, whether you believe me or not, my family rules EAW.

(Eclipse stretched his arms out, and from the shadows the shapes of the other members of the Sanatorium can be seen. Eclipse laughs to himself as he closes his eyes, feeling their presence around him before his gaze returns.)

Eclipse: I won’t be denied by anyone, for any reason at all. And neither shall my family. And if those in power think that I’m through. That my family has finished its growth, and that my teachings have ceased, I want them to pay close attention. Because this is only the start. Pain for Pride X, how far we have come along…but it’s just the beginning of the age of madness that will soon engulf EAW. And when I’m done. Their world will burn. And our world will rise from the ashes. And I know for a fact that they are afraid of this. Because they know that in the end…they did this to themselves. Outcasts. Rejoice. Your savior is here.

(He let out one more laugh, the sound echoing around the room as the red light flickered before shutting off fully, blacking out the screen entirely.)

(The camera transitions back to the stage)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is an Ultimate X match, and it is for the EAW New Breed Championship!!!

(The camera pans to the ring, doing a wide-angle 360 degree shot of the Ultimate X structure. The camera swivels around the ring and a bird’s eye view of the New Breed Championship hanging from above the ring closes out the shot. A video package then begins to play, showing highlights from the Ultimate X match at Pain for Pride 8; highlighting moments like Stark leaping off the cables for the Shooting Star Press down onto Charlie Scene and TLA, J.D. Damon with the top rope Death By Damon, and both TLA and Damon fighting in the middle only for the end result to happen with TLA unhooking the championship to become the new champion.)

(“Metal Who” by Exilea begins to play and the MetLife crowd rises to their feet. A TARDIS rises from underneath the stage, stopping flat at the platform. The TARDIS door opens, with a cloud of smoke seeping out, and Finnegan Wakefield steps out, wearing a custom-made suit reminiscent of and takes his stance, looking down while “Metal Who” continues to play. Finnegan picks his head up and takes a long look around the stadium. “Metal Who” dies out and the lights dim. The arena shakes with anticipation while “Morning Glory” by Oasis starts to play, and the lights come back to life, with the spotlight on Finnegan Wakefield who is now sporting his signature popped-up collar bomber jacket. Finnegan Wakefield walks down the ramp, taking in the cheers from the crowd as he approaches the ring.)

Stew-O: This match definitely has show-stealing potential, and what better way to kick off Ultimate X than with a spectacular entrance from Finnegan Wakefield! From the first day that Finnegan Wakefield arrived in this company, he’s made it abundantly clear that his one true goal was to win the New Breed Championship, and despite his fair share of obstacles, he’s made it to Pain for Pride X and that dream of competing for the New Breed Championship has been realized! However, he still has a long way to go before becoming champion… You can see Finnegan Wakefield looking up at the New Breed Championship hanging from above the ring, and that determination in his eyes says it all!

(“Victory 2004” by Diddy hits to a roaring pop from the crowd. Big Mike steps through the curtains, with Chris Elite sitting on his shoulders looking down. Big Mike pauses on the stage while Chris Elite stares down the ring, looking at the New Breed Championship. The song continues to play as Big Mike walks down the ramp with Chris Elite still on his shoulders. Big Mike stops right before the ring, and as The Notorious B.I.G’s verse starts, Chris Elite jumps off of Big Mike’s shoulders onto the apron, climbing up to the top turnbuckle and posing while the crowd continues to go wild.)

Pierre: Repping Showdown in this match, former New Breed Champion Chris Elite looks to join EAW legend Alexander Da Vinci on the list of TWO time champs! The “New” Chris Elite has a “by-any-means-necessary” attitude on things now, and given a volatile environment like Ultimate X, there’s definitely potential for that new attitude of his to shine. Not to mention, he may very well be the most agile, experienced participant in this match up, and if all else fails… Big Mike’s out here for a reason! Not to be biased, but I’m putting my money on Chris Elite!

(“You Will Know Our Name” by ACE+ hits to a chorus of cheers from the crowd. Moongoose McQueen comes running out, playing his air guitar while a colorful spectrum of pyro blows up behind him. Moongoose runs down to the ring and climbs up to the very top of the support pillar for the Ultimate X cables, posing at the top before climbing down and rolling into the center of the ring, posing in front of the hard cam.)

Stew-O: Here’s another man who’s quite the veteran in this industry; The Duke, Moongoose McQueen! Moongoose had a hell of a run in June, beating Jacob Senn at Burning Desire, then going toe-to-toe with Mr. DEDEDE on Dynasty the following week. Despite coming up short against GAWD himself, Moongoose cemented his spot at Pain for Pride, and now he aims to wrap up his rookie season in EAW with a monumental win in this Ultimate X match!

(“Pain” by CFO$ hits to a deafening rumble of boos. New Breed Champion Lucas Johnson walks out to the stage, his gaze firmly locked on his title hanging from the cables. Johnson walks down and enters the ring, staring down his three opponents.)

Stew-O: I think it’s a safe bet to say that Lucas Johnson may very well be one of the most dominant New Breed Champions of all time. He has decimated challenger after challenger, and when it seemed like there was nobody left to face him, Damien Murrow dropped this bombshell of a match on him! Still, Lucas Johnson is never lost for confidence, despite his opponents having gotten the better of him on the road to Pain for Pride. Lucas Johnson has months of pent up anger for these three men and it’s all ready to be let out on the biggest possible stage…

(The camera pans to the ring, going from competitor to competitor as they stand in their corners. The Ring Announcer steps to the center of the ring.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Planet Gallifrey by way of Bury St. Edmunds, West Suffolk, England, weighing in at 181 pounds… HE IS BRITISH WRESTLING TRUEBORN!!!… FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD!!!!!

(The crowd pops for Finnegan, as he pops his collar one last time before removing his jacket.)

Ring Announcer: Next, from Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 210 pounds… HE IS “SICKER THAN YA AVERAGE”!!!… CHRIS ELITE!!!!!

(Chris Elite gets a mixed reaction from the crowd as he leans back in his corner.)

Ring Announcer: Next, from Austin, Texas, weighing in at 236 pounds… THE DUKE!!!… MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN!!!!!

(The crowd pops for Moongoose and he strikes his air guitar.)

Ring Announcer: And finally, from Atlanta, Georgia, weighing in at 270 pounds… HE IS THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION!!!!… THE WRESTLING MACHINE, LUCAS JOHNSON!!!!

(Lucas Johnson holds his arm up while the crowd boos him. The referee checks on all four men and calls for the bell!)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: THE SECOND EVER ULTIMATE X MATCH AT PAIN FOR PRIDE IS UNDERWAY!!! All four men slowly approach the center of the ring – LUCAS JOHNSON WASTES NO MORE TIME GOING AT IT, LUNGING AT FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD WITH A BIG TAKEDOWN!!! JOHNSON LAYS INTO FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD WITH A BARRAGE OF FISTS!!!… CHRIS ELITE AND MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN JUMP LUCAS JOHNSON, EACH MAN GRABBING AN ARM OF THE CHAMPION AND PULLING HIM UP TO HIS FEET!!!

Pierre: Finnegan pushes himself off the mat while Johnson struggles to break free of Moongoose and Chris… FINNEGAN COMES FORWARD AND NAILS JOHNSON ON THE MOUTH WITH A BACKHAND SLAP!!! The champ is dazed and Moongoose pulls his arm back behind his back while Elite moves to the front, jabbing away at the face of the champion! Johnson swings with his free arm BUT FINNEGAN CATCHES IT FROM BEHIND AND PULLS JOHNSON DOWN TO HIS KNEES!!! Moongoose and Finnegan have Lucas Johnson trapped on the ground on his knees… It seems like the three challengers have formed somewhat of a tentative alliance to subdue the champion here early…

Stew-O: Chris Elite runs to the ropes… HERE HE COMES FOR WHAT MAY BE THE EXECUTING BLOW!!! PENALTY KICK!!! WHO SHOT YA!!! RIGHT TO THE — NO!!! LUCAS JOHNSON FALLS BACK AND PULLS FINNEGAN AND MOONGOOSE INTO EACH OTHER!!! CHRIS ELITE CONNECTS THE KICK TO FINNEGAN’S MIDSECTION, AND JOHNSON BREAKS FREE OF HIS GRIP, LOCKING HIS FREE ARM AROUND MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN… AND THROWS HIM BACK WITH THE RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!!! Chris Elite turns around – AND LUCAS JOHNSON DAMN NEAR TEARS HIS HEAD OFF WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE!!! JUST LIKE THAT, THE CHAMPION HAS CLEARED THE FIELD!!!

Pierre: WHAT A SHOW OF ABSOLUTE DOMINANCE FROM THE CHAMPION!!! It took the efforts of three men to bring the champion down to his knees and even then he outplayed them all! Finnegan Wakefield is back up to his feet, ready to square up against the champion who makes his way over to the British prodigy! Finnegan puts his arms up, ready to go toe to toe with the champion… LUCAS STRIKES FIRST!!! FINNEGAN DODGES THE SHOT AND DUCKS DOWN, TRYING TO TAKE JOHNSON DOWN WITH A DOUBLE LEGGED TAKEDOWN, BUT JOHNSON PLANTS HIS FEET, HOOKING FINNEGAN AROUND THE WAIST BEFORE LIFTING HIM HIGH UP FOR THE POWERBOMB!!!… WAIT!!! LOOK AT FINNEGAN!!! FINNEGAN THROWS AN ELBOW RIGHT TO THE DOME!!!

Stew-O: CHRIS ELITE COMES FROM BEHIND!!! DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF LUCAS JOHNSON!!! THE CHAMP STAGGERS FORWARD TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING BUT MAINTAINS HIS HOLD ON FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD WHO CONTINUES TO FIRE ELBOW AFTER SHARP ELBOW!!! CHRIS ELITE KEEPS ON LUCAS JOHNSON WITH QUICK KICKS TO THE LEG… LOOK OUT FOR MOONGOOSE!!! FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!! KNEE TO THE BACK OF LUCAS JOHNSON’S HEAD!!! LUCAS LOSES HIS GRIP ON FINNEGAN – FINNEGAN QUICKLY STEPS UP ON THE SHOULDERS OF LUCAS JOHNSON!!!! FINNEGAN LUNGES FOR THE CABLES ABOVE THE RING!!!… AND HE’S GOT THEM!!!!

LUCAS JOHNSON CRASHES INTO BIG MIKE AND CHRIS ELITE, AND ALL THREE MEN LAND IN A PILE OF FLESH AND BONE ON THE MAT!!!!

Pierre: LET’S GET A REPLAY OF THAT!!! I DIDN’T EVEN REALIZE LUCAS JOHNSON HAD FREED HIMSELF!!!

(The camera pans to a replay, showing Lucas Johnson unwrap himself from the cables before crawling back towards the steel pillars, climbing up to the very top and crawling towards the center where they meet above the championship, standing up over Chris Elite and Big Mike before hitting the moonsault.)

Pierre: My God… If you can sum up the intensity and desperation that a match at Pain for Pride invokes into one frame… That would be it. Lucas Johnson may have shattered his own bones, but he just saved his belt, if only for a few more moments.

Stew-O: Back up above the mat, Finnegan continues to drive that Wakefield Special II further in on Moongoose McQueen, and I don’t think he has any intention of breaking that hold until Moongoose’s limbs turn to dust… WAIT!!! MOONGOOSE IS USING HIS CORE STRENGTH TO PICK HIS LEGS UP AND PULL HIMSELF UP!!! WHAT IS HE THINKING HERE!!! IF FINNEGAN LOSES HIS SEATING ON THE CABLES THEY’RE BOTH GOING TO TAKE A NASTY FALL!!!… FINNEGAN IS TRYING HIS BEST TO PUSH MOONGOOSE BACK DOWN BUT MOONGOOSE TURNS SIDEWAYS… AND FINNEGAN BREAKS THE HOLD TO AVOID FALLING FROM THE CABLES!!!!

MOONGOOSE DROPS… BUT USES THE MOMENTUM IN HIS FAVOR… AND SHIFTS HIMSELF FORWARD!!!!! FROG SPLASH!!!!! RAIGEKI!!!!! MOONGOOSE LANDS FLAT ON FINNEGAN’S RIBS!!!! HOLY FUCKING HELL TALK ABOUT TURNING A BAD SITUATION IN YOUR FAVOR!!!!

Stew-O: Moongoose rolls over off of Finnegan, clutching his ribs as he spits out blood… This might not be good for The Duke… Medics are rolling in from ringside to check on Finnegan and Moongoose, pulling them outside of the ring. Let’s just hope they’re both good enough to continue this match, if they can make it back up by then…

Pierre: Lucas Johnson pulls himself up in the corner, while Big Mike helps Chris Elite up to his feet. Johnson sees the handicapped predicament he’s in… BUT THE FIGHTING CHAMPION RUNS FORWARD REGARDLESS!!!!

JOHNSON RECOILS BACK AND SOMEHOW STAYS UP ON HIS FEET WHILE ELITE RUNS TO THE ROPES… WHO SHOT YA!!!! PENALTY KICK TO THE CHEST!!!!

Ring Announcer: The following contest is a NO DISQUALIFICATION, THIRTY MINUTE IRON MAN MATCH!

(The arena lights shut down, leaving everyone in the darkness. After a few seconds the masses turn on their phone lights only to be surprised by a single flare pop on at the entrance. The man holding the flare puts a megaphone to his lips.)

There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious. Makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part. You can’t even passively take part

(Soon one by one hundreds of flares ignite, a sea of red on the entrance way. In the distance a siren from a cop car is heard.)

And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels. Upon the levers, upon all the apparatus. And you’ve got to make it stop

(The lights come back on a flood the arena with the anarchists on the stage as Wretches and Kings plays. They all soon are chased by security down the ramp. They jump through the crowd when of focus there’s a crash. A cop car hit the entrance ramp and out pops another anarchists. He shakes the cobwebs out and goes to the back of the car. Before he can open the door a volley of bullets shoots out the window. The person in the back climbs out of the window and smacks the anarchist in the temple with the butt of his gun. A hood conceals his face, and he looks up towards the crowd revealing a red helmet inspired by DC’s Jason Todd.)

(The man picks up the unconscious anarchist, and carries him over his soldier. He disposes the body by throwing it of the stage. He continues his walk with Wretches and Kings still playing in the background. He pulls out a automatic handgun from his leg holster and climbs in the ring. A target dummy is placed on the turnbuckle with a metal plate over it’s chest. The man fires his round into the dummy making an insignia. The man takes off the head piece revealing to be Aren Mstislav, as he pats the metal that bares his mark.)

Ring Announcer: INTRODUCING FIRST, FROM SAINT PETERSBURG, RUSSIA…WEIGHING IN AT 215 POUNDS….HE IS “THE RUSSIAN KING”…..AREEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNN MSSSTTTISSSSLLLLAAAAVVVV!!!!

WWEFan: The day is finally here! This is a match that has been three years in the making for Aren Mstislav and his opponent tonight, Nasir Moore. These guys have been fighting each other in matches since 2014 and now it finally ends here tonight with this final encounter! Aren Mstislav has made it known throughout the weeks that he is heading into this match feeling very confident with all due respect to Nasir Moore. It has always been a contest of who can top who between the two of them and in Aren’s mind he has been the clear winner so far.

Kawajai: Well stats do not lie if they are anything to go off of. Aren Mstislav has always been the person who can say he did it first when it comes to accomplishments. Singles titles, world championships and when it comes to overall exchanges between these two, Aren Mstislav edges Nasir off in victories. He won their last big encounter at Territorial Invasion last year, he knows he can beat Nasir Moore but at the same time with the roll Nas has been on and how much he has grown this is a whole different animal. Aren will have his work cut out for him in this thirty minute contest.

(Aren Mstislav steps into the ring, preparing himself for the contest while he looks out at the ramp.)

(The camera pans onto the stage as a group of seven men are stood each holding a single leaf in their hands. Each of them holds their leaf high in the air as you can hear the sound of a woman’s voice echoing throughout the arena.)

Voice: Will. Passion. Courage. Determination. Fire. Well all have it to varying degrees. Even a young seed being planted for after falling off of its parent, the great oak. It’s sole purpose in life to grow into a might tree of it’s own and continue its lineage.

(The first man blows his leaf and it flows on with the wind.)

Voice: Having the Courage to stand in the face of adversity. Even when the odds seem impossible and you wish to quit. Doing all in your power to press on and fight for what you believe in no matter what the cost may be.

(The second man blows his leaf and it flows on with the wind.)

Voice: Fighting not just for yourself, but putting others needs and wants before your own is what it fundamental in being not just a strong, but highly respected leader. Someone whom others can always depend on and lean to for guidance and support. More than a leader, a try ally and friend.

(The third man blows his leaf and it flows on with the wind. The voice steps out onto the stage to reveal Fortuneteller Hamasa even more bedazzled in jewelry than usual and wearing a white attire rather than the usual black, worn to symbolize the change in her demeanor since reuniting with Nasir.)

Fortuneteller Hamasa: Never carry the burden of all solely upon your shoulders. No matter how much power you may possess, There are battles out there even the single mightiest warrior alone cannot win. Teamwork is the key to the success that an individual could never achieve.

(The fourth man blows his leaf and it flows on with the wind.)

Fortuneteller Hamasa: Do not look back at past setbacks, as they only cloud your judgement for what is coming ahead. Who you were before and what you faced then should not be the deciding factor on how your future will play out or how it should be viewed. Do not let anyone else write your history for you.

(The fifth man blows his leaf and it flows on with the wind.)

Fortuneteller Hamasa: Also you must stay strong to be pure. Do not allow the wicked thoughts and dark temptations within you to manipulate your heart and seize control of you. You purpose is to be the shining light that engulfs others and purifies them.

(The sixth man blows his leaf and it flows on with the wind.)

Fortuneteller Hamasa: And finally you must always remember to keep smiling. Your gentle smile is your greatest weapon. It is one of a kind and depicts to all exactly who you are. A peaceful soul who is enraged and goes berserk when anyone you care for is trouble. Never forgot who you are…Young Master!

(The seventh man blows his lead and it flows on with the wind. Hamasa is standing right where the ramp begins with her arms clasped together and held to her chest. She has her head tilted down The seven men all leave the stage as a sole person steps onto the stage. His face is covered by a peculiar hate with the kanji for “Fire” on it. He is wearing a white cloak that reads “Sage of Light” in kanji. The man raises his hat up slightly to reveal himself as Nasir Moore wearing a cloak and hat patterned after Naruto as the Hokage with his own custom Kanji. He winks to the camera then gives the double peace sign as the fans erupt in a massive chant.)

Crowd: WE WANT MOORE! WE WANT MOORE! WE WANT MOORE! WE WANT MOORE! WE WANT MOORE! WE WANT MOORE! WE WANT MOORE!

Kawajai: AND THERE HE IS! Nasir Moore coming out looking quite a bit more extravagant than usual isn’t he Fan?

WWEFan: Well of course Kawa, this is Pain For Pride after all! Now is time to show out to the entire world and be remembered forever. And Nas is here to grab the bull by the horns so to speak.

Kawajai: Indeed, he’s been through wars with many men to make it here. Jamie O’Hara, Carlos Rosso, Y2Impact, Eclipse Diemos, Carson Ramsay, a Grand Rampage, an Extreme Elimination Chamber, and a previous encounter with his opponent here, Aren Mstislav.

WWEFan: That’s right, Nasir has made it emphatically clear he is here to prove one thing, and that is that he is NOT in Aren’s shadow any longer.

Nasir Moore (No Mic): You’re not the only one with an Army behind you Russian King!

(Hamasa stops at the ringside area and looks up into the sky as Nasir goes down onto a knee and does a plethora of hand motions. He stops after a while and smirks as a massive cloud of smoke covers the entire ramp including Nas. Once it clears it reveals many men dressed exactly like Nasir standing on each side of him all the way down the ramp. He simply stands up and continues walking to the ring as they all raise their hands for the peace sign.)

Ring Announcer: INTRODUCING…FROM NEWARK, NEW JERSEY…WEIGHING IN AT 212 POUNDS…BEING ESCORTED TO THE RING BY FORTUNETELLER HAMASA…HE IS THE “SAGE OF LIGHT” NAAAAAAASSSSSIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRR MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kawajai: Well that was certainly…unexpected don’t ya think?

WWEFan: Yeah…just how many Nasir’s do you think are out there?

Kawajai: I don’t think the world could handle that many of this guy now could they?

WWEFan: I’m sure Tarah Nova’s fainted backstage at the thought by now.

(Hamasa holds open the ropes and let’s Nas into the ring. He goes to the middle of the ring and does a three-sixty degree spin, observing the sea of people jam packed into the MetLife stadium.)

Fortunteller Hamasa (No mic): Are you ready for this?

Nasir Moore (No mic): I was born ready!

(The two embrace as Nasir hands her his cloak and hat as he goes down to his knees in the middle of the ring and looks up at the sky and the fans once again break out in the chant “WE WANT MOORE!”)

WWEFan: We are just only a matter of MOMENTS away from this match and I am at the edge of my seat! These two duking it out one more time….it’s going to be amazing.

Kawajai: Indeed it is. Look! Hamasa heading to the back now, leaving Nasir alone. This match is all up to him. It only makes sense as this is solely about these two and closing out their story. Aren Mstislav is standing by in his corner looking rather tense. Nasir Moore matches his gaze and the referee knows he can not have these two wait anymore. He’s signaling to the time keeper!

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: The bell has rung and the clock is now ticking! Aren Mstislav and Nasir Moore are standing by in their corners, slowly stepping out of them and meeting each other face to face. These two are staring a hole through each other, the tension in the ring is insane at the moment. Both men are taking this final counter seriously as, oh, hold on. Aren Mstislav is breaking the stand still, he is putting out his hand! Aren Mstislav looking to offer the handshake to start off this contest! At the end of the day these are two men who respect each other’s abilities. Nasir Moore goes to accept the handshake, some great sportsmanship here…but Aren Mstislav takes his hand back right away! Aren Mstislav showing a bit of arrogance much to the annoyance of Nasir. Aren messing with his friend there as now it is right back to business. Nasir initiates the lock up and both men are aggressively battling for control! Nasir is fighting extra hard for that dominant position, getting behind Aren Mstislav and placing him in a waist lock!

Kawajai: Aren Mstislav is holding onto those hands of Nasir Moore in an attempt of breaking his grip but Nasir keeps it firmly locked in and goes to lift him! Aren tries to block it, BUT NASIR YANKS AREN MSTISLAV UP AND SLAMS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS! WHAT A TAKEDOWN BY NASIR MOORE! Aren Mstislav rolls away in retreat before Nasir Moore can pounce on him for anything else as Nasir puts that hand up, showing Aren how close he was from getting at Aren there. It’s like a contest within a contest between these two, they want to put their skills on display and best each other in each exchange. Aren Mstislav is now the one who is annoyed as instead of going on the defensive he rushes at Nasir Moore, who is again one step ahead of him and gets him with an arm drag! Nasir holds on and twists Aren’s arm in an arm bar! Aren yelling out in pain as he rises up to his feet, Nasir maintaining that arm bar the whole time!

WWEFan: Nasir Moore binds that arm behind Aren Mstislav’s back! Aren reaches behind him to try and flip Nasir over in a snapmare but Nas uses his weight to keep himself grounded! Nasir grips Aren’s hair to pull his neck back….AND THEN NAILS HIM WITH A BEAUTIFUL DRAGON SUPLEX! Aren Mstislav holding his stomach as he gets to his feet and Nasir LIGHTS HIM UP with some knife edged chops! Aren loses his balance and staggers back into the ropes. Nasir approaches him and grabs him, pressing him up against those ropes and then whipping him across the ring! Aren rebounds…Nasir leapfrogs over him, Aren hits the ropes again — And Nasir is waiting for him with a shoulder block that drops him flat on his back. Aren Mstislav rolls under the legs of Nas as he goes running, Aren Mstislav shoots up to his feet and hits the ropes! Nasir bounces off of them at the same time! NAS STRIKES FIRST! THE JUMPMAN DROPKICK BY NAS!

Kawajai: Aren Mstislav scrambles to his feet as Nasir is there waiting for him, beckoning him to come close…and then side stepping him when Aren Mstislav goes charging at him to the corner! Aren stops himself from hitting the corner and changes direction! Nasir wasn’t expected that, he can’t react in time as Aren goes off running and mows him down with a lariat! Aren shaking his arm as even he was feeling the power of that hit! He rolls down his elbow pad slightly and turns back to his opponent. WOAH! Nas took the fall and then went ahead and kipped right back up to his feet! He will not let Aren keep him down for long! BUT AREN COMES AT NASIR AND SWEEPS THE LEG TO BRING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS! Nasir Moore rolls over onto side AND THERE’S A HARD KICK TO THE SPINE BY AREN MSTISLAV!

WWEFan: Nasir cringes in pain and continues to roll around the ring but Aren soon leans and picks him up! Aren DRIVES his knee into the sternum of Nasir Moore! Nasir is hunched over from that, sucking air! He notices Aren hovering over him and so he runs at him, grabbing him by the abdomen and hoping to bring him up for an overhead belly to belly but Aren with the double axe handle to his back! Nasir Moore drops to a knee and Aren takes a few steps back….THEN RUNS BACK TO HIM FOR A SHINING WIZARD! THE BOOT CATCHING NASIR IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD THERE AS HE FALLS TO THE GROUND! Nasir Moore goes to sit up, BUT AREN MSTISLAV LEAPS ON TOP OF HIM AND FORCES HIS SHOULDERS DOWN, AREN MSTISLAV HAS HIM IN A LATERAL PRESS, GOING FOR THAT EARLY FIRST FALL!

Referee: ONNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE……TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO….

Kawajai: A kickout with authority by Nasir Moore! Aren Mstislav wastes no time in slapping in a side headlock to make sure Nasir keeps himself from moving around too much. He must keep Nas close as he guides Nas up to his feet….AND PULLS HIM BACK FOR AN INVERTED BACKBREAKER! Nasir nearly falls over but Aren Mstislav keeps his hold over him and places Nasir between his knees….SITOUT POWERBOMB BY AREN! Aren again tries for a cover but before the referee can get to a one count Nasir swings his leg back and catches Aren in the bridge of his nose! Aren gets up while covering his face, he comes back around to Nas….AND DIVES FOR A KNEE TO THE BACK OF NASIR’S HEAD WHILE HE WAS ON HIS FOURS! Aren keeping Nasir on the ground and also stopping him from reaching out to those ropes to help him get up!

WWEFan: Nasir Moore struggles with Aren Mstislav on top of him, Aren is placing him in a painful variant of the camel clutch with that knee pointing into Nasir’s back! Nasir grabs Aren and pulls him forward, hoping for Aren to lose his balance and fall off of him! The hold begins to falter and so Nasir sees his opening, he manages to slip out from under Aren Mstislav, and then proceeds to take out Aren’s legs! Aren getting cut down and falling on his face there! Nasir Moore switches over to the top of Aren’s body and places him in a front facelock! Nasir is letting Aren Mstislav rise up to a vertical base with that facelock still intact and then he places Aren’s arm over his head! Nasir grips the side of Aren’s tights and is looking to pick him up — Nasir is making a try for a suplex but Aren Mstislav attempts to counter! Nasir is tripping up, he falls into the ropes with Aren still in his grasps! Nasir Moore gives it one last try…..AND HE SUPLEXES AREN MSTISLAV, SENDING THE BOTH OF THEM OVER THE ROPES AND ONTO THE OUTSIDE! A NASTY FALL FOR BOTH INDIVIDUALS AS THEY TUMBLE TO THE FLOOR!

Kawajai: Nasir Moore is definitely favoring himself after that move but Aren Mstislav still got it worse. Nasir Moore is the first up to his feet with Aren Mstislav starting to stir and pull himself up with the ring tarp. Aren Mstislav sees Nasir walking over to him and so he decides to strike first! Aren Mstislav swings for a punch but Nasir Moore ducks it and then walks with some urgency to get some separation. Aren Mstislav runs to him to close that distance from each other BUT NASIR MOORE CAME PREPARED! A TILT A WHIRL BY NASIR SENDING THE BACK OF AREN ONTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON! HOLY HELL LOOK AT THE WAY AREN’S BACK FOLDED UP AS SOON AS IT MADE CONTACT, WHAT AN IMPACT!

WWEFan: Aren Mstislav is on the ground still feeling the effects of that as Nasir Moore is looking down at him. The gears are turning, he’s thinking something out. He suddenly makes a sharp turn into the ring, leaving Aren behind. He seems to be confident in that Aren will stay put. Aren Mstislav is slowly but surely getting to his feet. One thing you have to notice is that Aren seems to have made the mistake of getting up with his back turned to the ring. He has Nasir out of sight and out of mind right now! As he shakes the cobwebs and turns around….NASIR MOORE SPEEDS OUT TOWARD HIM, SHOOTING BETWEEN THE ROPES WITH A SUICIDE DIVE — OH MY GOD! AREN MSTISLAV WITH INCREDIBLE REFLEXES! AREN MSTISLAV DROPS FLAT ONTO THE GROUND, LEAVING NASIR MOORE TO MISS HIS MARK! NASIR MOORE SKIDDING OFF THE FLOOR AND PLANTING ONTO THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP! Aren Mstislav is able to recover now and catch a bit of a breather!

Kawajai: Aren Mstislav is not taking any breaks though, he already is plotting his next course of action! Aren Mstislav is now the one who rolls into the ring and is observing Nasir who is taking his time after crashing and burning onto the ground. Aren Mstislav gathers up some momentum….and as soon as he sees that Nasir Moore is stood up he is OFF! AREN MSTISLAV GOES RUNNING AND CLEARS THE ROPES AS HE FLIES OUTSIDE FOR A PLANCHA ONTO NASIR MOORE! AREN MSTISLAV GOT ALL OF THAT! Aren clutches at his back though, it was not smart to strain himself like that! Aren Mstislav is getting up rather gingerly as he heads over to Nasir Moore and lifts him up to his feet. NASIR MOORE WITH A FOREARM SMASH! Aren Mstislav pushes him into the steel steps in response! Nasir Moore manages to save himself from the brunt of that force and runs back to Aren!

WWEFan: BACKDROP ONTO THE FLOOR BY AREN! Aren Mstislav drops to a knee after that, Aren forced himself to do that to save himself, he still could use some time to rest though. Aren gets in a few short breaths and then gets back to work. He sees Nasir Moore is coming to…and so he ROUNDHOUSE KICKS HIM IN THE CHEST! NASIR MOORE IS DETERMINED TO GET UP, BRUSHING IT OFF! AREN MSTISLAV GOES FOR A KENKA KICK THIS TIME TO SEND HIM RIGHT BACK ONTO HIS BACK FOR GOOD! Aren Mstislav walks around Nasir now, what is he doing here…OH! Aren Mstislav is going under the ring and is looking for some toys! Remember that this match is No Disqualification, these two have kept this match clean so far but now Aren Mstislav is going to introduce the element of extreme! Aren Mstislav appears to be grabbing things and then just letting them go! Aren is looking for the perfect item, digging further and further, until wait! I think he has what he wants! Aren Mstislav pulls out a kendo stick! Aren has that kendo stick in hand and he is practicing his swings as he taps it on the ground, waiting for Nasir to get up!

Kawajai: Nasir Moore turns around, unaware of what is about to come next AS AREN MSTISLAV HITS HIM WITH THAT KENDO STICK! AND AGAIN! AND A SHOT TO THE ARM! AND A SHOT TO THE LEG! NASIR MOORE BACKS OFF BUT AREN ADVANCES LOOKING FOR A SHOT TO THE RIBS AS HANG ON! NASIR MOORE WITH GREAT TIMING AS HE IS ABLE TO WRAP HIS ARM AROUND THE KENDO STICK! Nasir Moore yanks it out of Aren Mstislav’s hand as The Russian King’s eyes widen — NASIR MOORE WASTES NO TIME! HE BREAKS THE KENDO STICK OVER AREN’S HEAD IN ONE SWING AS AREN COLLAPSES, HITTING THE FLOOR LIKE A TON OF BRICKS! THE STICK WAS BROKEN INTO PIECES AS IT SPLINTERED OFF EVERYWHERE! NASIR MOORE NOW GETS ON TOP OF AREN MSTISLAV, PUMMELING HIM! THIS MATCH IS STARTING TO GET LESS AND LESS FRIENDLY BETWEEN THE TWO, NASIR IS GETTING INTO THIS WITH HARD PUNCHES, FOCUSING RIGHT ON WHERE AREN GOT HIT AS HE TURNS A SMALL SPOT OF BLOOD INTO A TRICKLE DOWN AREN MSTISLAV’S SKULL!

WWEFan: Nasir Moore is going in with the punches, finally stepping off when he feels that it is enough! Something has gotten into Nasir right now! Nasir Moore is now dropping down and grabbing the mats at ringside! NASIR MOORE IS TEARING AWAY THE RING MATS TO EXPOSE THE CONCRETE! Nasir Moore is taking this a few steps far don’t you think?

Kawajai: This is what they signed up for! They’re not friends tonight! You have to do what you have to do to get that first fall in this match and lead on the scoreboard! Nasir Moore is looking at Aren Mstislav right now as if he is his mortal enemy, a switch has been turned on as Nasir grabs Aren by the neck and forces him up! A kick to the gut by Nasir! He uses a handful of Aren’s hair to drag him over to where the concrete is and then picks him up…OH NO…NO…..BRAAAIINBBUSTEERRR ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOOR!!! AREN MSTISLAV GOT DROPPED RIGHT ON HIS HEAD AS YOU CAN HEAR THE SMACK! THAT MAN LOOKS LIKE HE IS OUT! Nasir Moore might have just secured himself a point with that! Nasir turns over to look at his work and sees that Aren Mstislav is barely moving. Nasir Moore reaches for him and is now looking to bring him into the ring! Nasir Moore with all of his strength is bringing him up but is becoming a bit difficult as Aren is now all deadweight! Nasir Moore is forcing Aren up, trying to bring him onto the apron so he can push him in. Nas has part of Aren near the apron, he then lifts Aren up by his legs — THERE WE GO! Nasir Moore pushes Aren Mstislav’s body into the ring and then rolls in! Nasir Moore going for a cover!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE……TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO……..THREEEEEEEEEEEEE…..

WWEFan: A KICKOUT!? AREN MSTISLAV GETS THE SHOULDER UP SOMEHOW! Nasir Moore can not believe it! Nasir Moore gets up and is yelling at Aren Mstislav to get back up! Nasir is watching Aren, Nasir does not know what to do with himself there, he can not wait to see him return to his feet! Aren Mstislav is starting to regain his senses, his eyes are glazed over but you can tell he is starting to think more clearly. Aren Mstislav is pushing himself up. He’s standing up! Nasir Moore is behind him though! Nasir sees his opportunity! THE PULSE BOMB! NASIR MOORE LOOKING TO LIFT AREN FOR THAT BLUE THUNDER BOMB BUT HEY! AREN MSTISLAV WITH A PALM THRUST TO THE FACE!

Kawajai: NASIR MOORE LOSES HIS GRIP AND AREN MSTISLAV FALLS ON HIM IN A CROSSBODY! AREN MSTISLAV ROLLS OFF OF HIM AND STARTS TO HEAD TO THE ROPES! HE NEEDS TO GET UP QUICK, HE CAN NOT AFFORD TO MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY! Aren Mstislav is rising to his feet but Nasir Moore is stirring at a fast rate — THE VENGEFUL UPBRINGING BY AREN! AREN BOUGHT HIMSELF SOME MORE TIME AS HE PULLS FROM HIS RESERVES! UGH! AREN MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CAPITALIZE, HE FALLS OVER FROM EXHAUSTION! HE GOT UP WAY TOO SOON AFTER THAT BRAINBUSTER!

WWEFan: Both men are down and the clock is still ticking in this Iron Man match! Neither man has a point on the board so they need to kick it into high gear! Aren Mstislav gets to the apron and then slides out of the ring, making sure to go feet first to better help stand himself up. He keeps his hands on the apron to make sure he can maintain his balance. Aren Mstislav is ready to carry on — BUT NASIR HAS AWOKEN! NASIR MOORE COMING OUT OF NOWHERE AS HE CRASHES INTO AREN MSTISLAV WITH THE BASEBALL SLIDE! Aren Mstislav getting sent into our announce table as Nasir sees he has a moment to go searching under the ring! Nasir pulling out one! Two! THREE chairs! Nasir has something special planned BUT AREN MSTISLAV PUTS A STOP TO IT! AREN PULLING A MONITOR AWAY FROM OUR TABLE AND BASHING IT DIRECTLY INTO NASIR MOORE’S SKULL! NASIR MOORE IS SLUMPED OVER ON THE GROUND! AREN GOT HIM RIGHT IN THE TEMPLE! AREN MSTISLAV NOW TOSSES THE MONITOR AWAY AND LOOKS AT THOSE CHAIRS NASIR MOORE TOOK OUT!

Kawajai: Aren Mstislav kicks them around so they are out in the open and then goes under the ring so that he can pull out more! Chair after chair getting thrown into that pile as Aren Mstislav keeps going! Aren Mstislav pulling out another as he goes right back to digging around! He seems to have taken out every chair from that side of the ring! Aren Mstislav looks at all of those chairs he has brought out…AND IS NOW THROWING THEM INTO THE RING! AREN MAKING SURE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM IS INSIDE OF THE SQUARED CIRCLE AS HE HEADS INTO THE RING! Aren Mstislav is unfolding those chairs and standing them up next to each other! He gets a good line up of chairs in the center of the ring — AND IS NOW STACKING SOME CHAIRS ON TOP OF THAT LINE UP! AREN IS MAKING ROW AFTER ROW, STACKING THEM ON TOP! HANG ON, WE’VE SEEN AREN DO THIS BEFORE! AREN MADE THIS BACK IN HIS VERY FIRST NO DQ MATCH WITH NASIR!

WWEFan: Aren Mstislav has created a pyramid like structure made out of those steel chairs! Aren Mstislav trying to get it right this time! Aren Mstislav has the evil contraption set up and is now looking back at Nasir who is bleeding out on the floor, looking up from over the apron, struggling to get up! Aren Mstislav stands back and watches Nasir climb up onto the apron. That is when he approaches Nas! Aren grabs the ropes AND SLINGSHOTS NAS OVER THE ROPES, JUMPING UP AND CATCHING HIM WITH A CUTTER! Aren watched Nasir get up just so he could deliver that move and keep Nasir from stopping his plans! Aren Mstislav is being really calculated. He scrapes Nasir Moore off of the mat and slings him over his shoulder, placing him onto the top rope and then climbing up there to join him!

Kawajai: What is Nasir Moore in for!? OH! Aren Mstislav is about to return the favor from earlier! AREN MSTISLAV HAS HIM UP IN THE AIR, PERHAPS GOING FOR THAT BRAINBUSTER HE CALLS THE RAGS TO RICHES! NASIR’S FEET DANGLING IN THE AIR AS HE TRIES TO BRING THEM BACK DOWN TO THE TURNBUCKLE! NASIR MOORE PLACING HIMSELF BACK DOWN AT THE TOP ROPE! AREN MSTISLAV GOES EVEN FURTHER UP, JOINING NASIR AT THE VERY TOP TO MAKE SURE HE GETS THIS MOVE DONE BUT NASIR IS FIGHTING HIM EVERY BIT OF THE WAY! Nasir with a HARD punch to the abdomen as Aren Mstislav buckles at the knees and lets go! Nasir Moore is managing to stand up at the top with Aren, both men are there! Nasir pulls Aren in! He has Aren’s arm over his shoulder! Wait, he’s not going to do…don’t tell me…..

WWEFan: THE GRAND SLAAAAAMMMMM! NASIR MOORE DUSTING OFF THE GRAND SLAM FOR OLD TIMES SAKE AS HE SENDS AREN MSTISLAV THROUGH THAT PYRAMID STRUCTURE! THE CHAIRS GO FLYING EVERYWHERE AS IT IS A NASTY LANDING FOR BOTH MEN! PIECES HAVE BROKE, THE STEEL HAS BENT AGAINST THEIR SKIN — WE SAW THIS SAME THING HAPPEN ALMOST THREE YEARS AGO AS ONCE AGAIN AREN IS A VICTIM TO HIS OWN CREATION! AFTER ALL OF THIS TIME I THOUGHT THAT WE’D NEVER SEE ANOTHER GRAND SLAM FROM NASIR BUT I GUESS THIS OCCASION CALLS FOR IT! NASIR, STILL HURT HIMSELF,PUSHES HIMSELF OUT OF THE MESS OF CHAIRS AND PULLS AREN’S BODY OUT OF THE WRECKAGE HE WAS BURIED IN! COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE……TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO……THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Ring Announcer: Nasir Moore has secured a fall! The score is ONE TO ZERO!

Kawajai: We FINALLY get our first fall after so much time having passed in this contest! If Nasir Moore could just chill out and lay low for a while he could take that one fall and run out the clock! Nasir Moore is tired out himself though. He damn near killed himself by going through those chairs with Aren! The two lay near each other, both unable to rise up! Nasir tries to move but it is very awkward to do so when he is surrounded by bent up chairs! I think that just gave Nasir any idea though! He takes a beat up steel chair leg and now brings it to the throat of Aren Mstislav! HE’S TRYING TO CHOKE HIM OUT! Aren Mstislav is putting his hands up, trying to keep that steel from getting so close to his throat! Nasir is determined to keep him down! If Aren passes out he can’t fight back and Nasir Moore can skate to the end of this!

WWEFan: Aren Mstislav puts one hand on the ground and scampers it around the wreckage of the chairs, looking for a life line! Aren Mstislav grabs a chair AND SWINGS IT INTO THE HEAD OF NASIR MOORE! THAT GOT NAS OFF OF HIM! NASIR MOORE DROPS! AREN GOT A GREAT SHOT IN! IMAGINE WHAT THAT DOES TO AN OPPONENT! ALL OF HIS SENSES HAVE GOT TO BE MESSED WITH THERE! YOU CAN’T THINK STRAIGHT, YOU’RE DAZED, THAT EAR OF HIS MUST BE BUSTED UP TOO! Look at it — OUCH! A nasty sight there as blood is all over the head of Nasir! Aren Mstislav is pushing himself through the wreckage and is starting to get himself back into the swing of things! A bad gash is on his back but he doesn’t seem to care, Aren is focused on what he must do!

Kawajai: Nasir Moore is stumbling around, not sure of where he is! The equilibrium of Nasir is badly impaired. He practically walks into the waiting arms of Aren Mstislav, who scoops him up AND PLANTS HIM WITH A SPINEBUSTER INTO THAT MESS OF STEEL CHAIRS! THOSE CHAIRS AGAIN BEING PUT TO USE AS IT SEEMS THEY ARE MORE DANGEROUS BENT UP THAN THEY WERE WHEN THEY WERE SET AS THAT PYRAMID! Aren Mstislav drops down and rolls out of the ring, looking for some more weapons to be used! Aren Mstislav grabs a trash can AND THROWS IT INTO THE RING AS IT FALLS DOWN ONTO NASIR MOORE! Not sure if that was a lucky throw or intentional but it works either way! Aren Mstislav has to move fast! We are in the final ten minutes, Aren has to put at least two falls together in order to win this match!

WWEFan: Aren Mstislav pulls out a bag! We have all seen this before, I am sure we know what to expect to come from that and it is no good! Aren Mstislav heads into the ring with that bag and is untying the string that is keeping the bag closed! He’s undone the knot and now holds the bag up….TURNING IT UPSIDE DOWN AND LETTING THE CONTENTS FALL OUT! THUMBTACKS! WE HAVE THUMBTACKS POURING OUT OF THE BAG AND DROPPING ONTO THE CANVAS! I HAVE CHILLS JUST SEEING THOSE HIT THE GROUND! Aren empties out the whole bag, shaking it to make sure he got every single tack before disposing of it! Aren Mstislav is making his way toward Nasir Moore, he has his hands out to grab him but Nasir smacks his hands away!

Kawajai: Aren Mstislav goes to grab Nasir Moore again BUT NASIR STUNS HIM WITH A SITOUT JAWBREAKER! Aren Mstislav staggers back but turns around and makes sure to move away from the tacks! Aren turns back to look at Nasir but Nasir is intent on knocking him down with a clothesline! Aren Mstislav makes sure to avoid it and now picks Nasir Moore up! A back suplex? Wait, no! Aren Mstislav is placing Nasir Moore in the corner for the tree of woe! A change in plans by Aren as he grabs that trash can and places it in front of Nasir Moore’s face! Aren Mstislav is backing away….AREN MSTISLAV LOOKING TO SHOOT THE TRASH CAN INTO NASIR’S FACE! BASEMENT DROPKICK!

WWEFan: Aren Mstislav stops and puts the brakes to it! Nasir Moore sat up and avoided the hit! He is sitting on the top turnbuckle and is looking to reposition himself! Hold up, Aren Mstislav makes his way to him – no! Elbow to the face! Nasir Moore has a second to climb up! Nasir Moore repositions himself so that he is facing Aren! NASIR MOORE DIVES FOR A DDT!

Kawajai: But Aren Mstislav shows some great strength by catching him! Aren Mstislav is grabbing those arms, changing how Nas is positioned, he uses his foot to roll that trash can back from the corner while he is bringing Nas up…..AREN JUMPS UP AND TWISTS IN THE AIR! THE CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT! THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT BY AREN INTO THE TRASH CAN! THOSE JAGGED EDGES CUTTING INTO THE TOP OF NAS’ HEAD! NAS IS TURNED OVER BY AREN AS AREN GETS ON TOP AND HOOKS THE LEG!

Referee: ONNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Ring Announcer: Aren Mstislav has secured a fall! The score is now ONE TO ONE!

WWEFan: We are tied with only five minutes left on the clock! Aren Mstislav can smell the blood in the water, if he hustles he might just clinch this! Aren Mstislav is peppering Nasir Moore with shots! Kicks to the side! To the chest! To the leg! Spinning backfist to the jaw! All through the beating though Nasir Moore has been rising to his feet, just eating these shots and asking for more! Nasir Moore is running on adrenaline at this point! He knows this is the last leg of the match! This is where you put it all out there! Nasir gets hit with a forearm! And he hits Aren back with one! Aren with a forearm again! Nasir with one! Aren with another! Nasir with another! Aren takes the shot and goes for his fourth! Nasir AGAIN! Nasir stands there and is actually waiting for Aren’s response! Aren hits his and waits for Nasir’ now! It’s almost like they’re psyching each other up! Nasir with his hardest forearm yet! Aren takes a step back, fully rolls that elbow pad off of his arm finally AND TEARS INTO NASIR BADLY ON HIS TURN! Nasir Moore is nearly OUT! He falls into the ropes.. AND WAKES UP TO JUMP AT AREN WITH THE RASENGAN! THE SUPERMAN PUNCH! Aren falls back, rebounds AND TAKES ANOTHER! Nasir is hyping up the fans, he’s cocking back his fist! It is time for the third one! A THIRD RASENGAN!

Kawajai: NO! AREN MSTISLAV JUMPS WITH NAS AND CATCHES THE FIST! AREN CROSSES HIS LEGS AROUND NASIR! AN ARMBAR! ARMBAR BY AREN MSTISLAV AS HE IS WRENCHING BACK ON THAT SUBMISSION! AREN IS GETTING DESPERATE HERE AS HE IS HOLDING ON WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT! NASIR IS IN A BAD WAY AS THE REFEREE IS ASKING HIM IF HE WILL SUBMIT! IF AREN GETS A TAPOUT HE’LL BE TWO TO ONE AND WITH LITTLE TIME LEFT ON THE CLOCK THIS WOULD BE HIS MATCH TO WIN! NASIR MOORE IS PULLING ON THOSE LEGS OF AREN, TRYING TO PRY HIM OFF BUT AREN SLAMS THOSE LEGS BACK DOWN! NASIR HAS NOWHERE TO GO! IF NAS WERE TO TOUCH THE ROPES AREN STILL WOULDN’T HAVE TO BREAK THIS HOLD! HE’S STUCK!

WWEFan: Two and a half minutes left in this match! Aren is twisting that armbar even more! He’s just watching that clock and with every second counting down he is getting more and more into that submission! OH! A STRONG PULL BY AREN! HE MIGHT POP THIS GUY’S ARM OUT!

Aren Mstislav: (w/o mic) Don’t think I won’t break it Nas! Tap! TAP!

WWEFan: Aren Mstislav is taking this match extremely seriously! This win means everything to him! It means everything to both men! That’s why Nasir Moore is having so much difficulty in giving up! Nasir Moore is starting to get drained, he is getting less aggressive with how he is attempting to break the hold. He might just pass out from the pain! Nasir Moore’s hand slips off of Aren Mstislav’s legs….and I think it’s over. The referee heads over to Nasir Moore as it is time to pick up the hand, if it drops down then we’ll have to call it a fall for Aren.

Kawajai: You gotta give it to Nasir, he gave it all he had there as….WOAH! WAIT! NASIR MOORE IS NOT DONE YET! NASIR MOORE SHOOTS UP OUT OF NOWHERE AND IS PUSHING OUT OF THE ARMBAR! NASIR PLAYING POSSUM TO GET AREN MSTISLAV TO RELAX ON THE HOLD! HE HAS AREN MSTISLAV ON HIS BACK! AREN IS STILL KEEPING THAT ARMBAR BUT SINCE HE CAN’T GET THAT EXTENSION ANYMORE IT’S NO USE! NASIR MOORE STANDS UP WITH AREN CLINGING ON TO HIM! Aren Mstislav FINALLY abandons the armbar and rolls off of his back! He is behind Nas and turns him around! BIG BOOT!

WWEFan: Nasir is still up to his feet but then Aren pulls him down in a hunched over position! He’s dragging him into place! Right to where those thumbtacks are! Oh man….KAISER’S CROWN! CURB STOMP INTO THE THUMBTACKS!

Kawajai: NASIR MOORE POPS HIM UP TO AVOID IT! Aren Mstislav falls straight down onto his feet as Nasir Moore gets behind him! PUUUUUULSSSSE BOOOMMMMB! THE BLUE THUNDER BOMB CONNECTS BY NASIR INTO THOSE THUMBTACKS! THOSE TACKS STICKING INTO AREN’S BACK AS HE IS SHAKING! NAS KEEPS AN ARM ON THE CHEST OF AREN AS THE SHOULDERS ARE DOWN! FORTY SECONDS TO GO! THE REFEREE GOES DOWN TO COUNT!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Ring Announcer: Nasir Moore has secured a fall! The score is now TWO TO ONE!

WWEFan: Nasir Moore got the second fall with a little over thirty seconds left on the clock! All he has to do is wait it out! Nasir Moore is leaning against the ropes, taking it all in! He is raising up his fist and pumping it up! He’s calling it a match! It’s not officially over yet though! There is still twenty eight seconds, twenty seven, twenty six — OH! Aren Mstislav has some wherewithal to move around! Aren is crawling over behind him, he rolls Nasir Moore up! NO WAY! NO WAY! NOT THIS CLOSE TO THE END!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Kawajai: NOPE! Nasir Moore powers out of that roll up! Nasir Moore is rising to his feet but then there is Aren! He takes a handful of tacks and throws them into Nas’ face! Aren doing whatever he can to salvage this match and force a tie! Kick the midsection! KAISER’S CROWN! KAISER’S CROWN! THE CURB STOMP CONNECTS THIS TIME WITH ONLY TEN SECONDS TO GO! AREN MSTISLAV WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS LEFT TURNS NASIR OVER! WE MAY SEE THIS GO TWO TO TWO BUT THERE IS ONLY FIVE SECONDS LEFT!

WWEFan: FOUR SECONDS NOW!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

(4………)

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

(3…………….)

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

(2…………….)

Kawajai: NO! NASIR MOORE KICKS OUT WITH ONLY ONE SECOND TO SPARE! BOTH MEN LAY DOWN, THEY’RE SPENT!

(1!)

WWEFan: AND TIME’S UP!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“I Am Electric” by Heaven’s Basement starts to play on the PA System as both men are tired, laid out on the ground and barely moving. The official checks on both men and helps them sit up, making sure they’re both ok before grabbing Nasir’s hand and raising it up high to signify his victory.)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner…..NAAAAAAAAAAASSSIRRRRR MOOOOOOOOOOOREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

WWEFan: It is over…the final chapter in the storied history of Nasir Moore and Aren Mstislav has come to a close and Nasir Moore walks away the victor. What a match…WHAT A WAR! That match took my expectations and blew them away. An Iron Man CLASSIC up there with some of the best I’ve ever seen. Neither man can even get up, the referee keeps walking over to keep them sat up and conscious! These guys tore the house down and damn near killed each other!

Kawajai: They fought until the very end — literally until the last second of the match. Look at the two of them! They’re on their fours and are crawling to each other! Aren takes a knee — I don’t know how he is even moving; and Nasir is picking himself up too! Aren Mstislav is calling Nas’ name to get his attention…and he’s offering his hand to Nasir Moore! Is this just a joke like the start of the match? Nasir is looking a bit hesitant!

WWEFan: Nasir Moore extends his hand to Aren Mstislav….AND THEY SHAKE HANDS FOR A SIGN OF RESPECT! Aren Mstislav and Nasir Moore are now using each other to get themselves up to a vertical base! Awesome sportsmanship here! And now that they’re able to stand straight a hug takes place between the two! Aren Mstislav holds up Nasir’s hand as the crowd is giving them a both a standing ovation! This just goes to show how no hard feelings are being taken away from the match. Things got tense there but it was just a match! That friendship is still there, that brotherly bond is still there! Nas and Aren have been in EAW together for three, going on four years, facing each other all throughout that time but now they can put that all behind them. The rivalry is over and it wrapped up in spectacular fashion!

Kawajai: Nasir Moore leading the way as the two of them are heading out of the ring and HEY! There goes Aria Jaxon and Tarah Nova to congratulate them up top. The Nas N Mstislav Connection just stole the show and now they can celebrate together on stage! This is what Pain For Pride is all about!

(Nasir Moore and Aren Mstislav remain on stage with their companions for a moment, waving to the crowd and talking amongst themselves as we fade away from the scene.)

(The camera transitions backstage to Max A. Million with a microphone in hand)

Max: Ladies and gentlemen, joining me at this time… EAW Hall of Fame Legend, Robbie V.

(The camera pans to the left where Robbie V is shown in his ring gear with a determined expression on his face)

Max: Needless to say this… Well, this is potentially the biggest match of your career. Everything on the line for you. There’s no going back. This will be your final match–

Robbie: I know, Max. I know.

Max: How do you prepare for something like this?

Robbie: The answer is… I really don’t. I just did what I always do. I trained the same way, and I… Well, now that I think about it, there was something I did that I’ve never done before.

Max: What’s that?

Robbie: I’m far from a religious man, Max. I spent a lot of my childhood surrounded by very religious people, and I guess it kind of turned me off to the whole thing, but… For the first time in a very, very long time… I prayed.

Max: Why?

Robbie: I don’t know if I really believe in God, but I prayed because… I can’t really explain it. Like I was hoping there’s really something out there – anything, really. Something that would stop me.

Max: Hold on, what do you mean? Stop you?

Robbie: Max, tonight isn’t just a match. I don’t really have anything to prove here. You ask anyone else and they’ll tell you they think Viper has this over and done with simply because he needs it more. Simply because he WANTS it more. I thought that was kind of funny, how people pretend any of that matters. How people genuinely grow up believing it’s about heart and determination. We’re all selfish here. Every single one of us. You think it matters to someone if the other guy wants it more or needs it more? None whatsoever. Never been about that, and it never will be. That’s why I prayed, because what I’m going to do to Viper… Brian… Whatever he wants to call himself. I’m going to do it to him because it’s what I do, and it’s what I’ve always done. I don’t pretend to be a good person. The World saw me for what I was a long time ago, so why bother? Why keep trying to cover it up? I hurt people, and I enjoy it. Every bit of it. Viper being who he is – that doesn’t change anything. I’m going to torture him out there in that ring, regardless of what we’ve been through, and regardless of how much he’s dying to beat me.

(Robbie takes a moment to think before continuing)

Robbie: So I really hope there’s some divine intervention out there, because if there’s not… I’m going to break him. I don’t need to, and I don’t want to. I have to. Because that’s who I am. I spent so long pretending. So long trying to be the hero, and the good guy. If this is it – if this is the end, then so be it. I’ll use everything. I would rather die being who I really am than live on for another 10 years pretending to be someone I’m not. I hope Viper doesn’t fault me for it. He wanted this… So he’s going to get it. Be careful what you wish for.

(Robbie takes his leave as a concerned Max looks on)

WWEFan: And now is something both you and I have been waiting for, Kawa. These two forces have been colliding for too long, and we both knew something had to give.

(The camera cuts to the Barbed Wire Steel Cage slowly descending from above as ominous music plays)

Kawajai: We’ve seen this sadistic structure before, and we know exactly what it’s capable of… And with two MONSTERS like HRDO and Eclipse? Forget about it! I’d be surprised if there’s anything left of them when this is all said and done.

(The camera shows the iron canvas in the ring)

WWEFan: A match specifically designed to punish the human body. As much as it’ll hurt to watch, I can’t think of a more appropriate contest for these two. Eclipse Diemos has spent so long unleashing his monstrous wrath, but he has NEVER been inside the ring with someone quite like HRDO. This one… This one isn’t going to be pretty, Kawa.

(The Barbed Wire Steel Cage stops just above the ring as the lights in MetLife Stadium return to normal)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Announcer: The following contest is a DEVIL’S PIT MATCH!!…. The two competitors will compete inside this Barbed Wire Steel Cage structure, complete with an iron canvas, and the only way to win is when one man is unable to continue!….

(A massive wall of fire explodes out from the stage)

(“Monster” by Skillet plays all throughout the arena as a monstrous HRDO slowly makes his way out to the stage in his familiar red and black attire and mask while the LED screens show the city of East Rutherford burning. HRDO makes his way down the ramp as walls of fire rise on each side as he walks)

Announcer: First, making his way towards the ring…. He hails from Parts Unknown!…. He weighed in tonight at 323 Pounds!…. HE IS THE CHAIRMAN OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING…. THIS IS H! R!! D!! O!!!…..

WWEFan: It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such determination on this man’s face, but it goes to show how truly determined he is that he’s even getting back inside a ring for this! He wants to punish Eclipse for everything, and in his mind, this is the only option he has left! This man dominated every single competitor that stepped in his way, and he aims to make good on that reputation once more!

Kawajai: I can feel the damn heat from those flames from here! Not only that, but I can see the fire in HRDO’s eyes just as well! There’s a scowl on his face underneath that creepy mask, I just know it! I hope Eclipse knows what he got himself into!

(The camera pans to the stage as the lights black out entirely around the arena. As the audience starts to turn on their phones a message appears on it with static that simply states “Scared Yet”. From the stage a soft hum sounds as a group of children walk out, each of them holding a lantern in their hands. They circle the stage, humming to one another. They set their lanterns down in a circle around the stage, continuing their humming which seems to increase in volume as they hold each others hands.)

Children: Ia Ia, Diemos, Phtagen! Ia Ia, Diemos, Phtagen! Ia Ia, Diemos, Phtagen! IA IA, DIEMOS, PHTAGEN!

(The chant grows louder and louder until the children stop in unison, their heads going down as smoke rises from the center. As the smoke continues to rise, tentacle like tendrils begin to rise from the hole in the center. The tendrils rise faster and eventually Eclipse rises up with them, his attire a patchwork array of leather and what seemed to be ‘tanned flesh’. Adorning his black shirt was an image of Cthulhu. As he lifted up his own lantern, blowing it out “Inside the Fire” by Disturbed began, playing only the vocal track of the song as he slowly made his way down to the stage. With every step the titantron flickered with static until it ‘burst’ with blood, the splatter forming the phrase “Scared Yet”.)

WWEFan: A very menacing, ominous arrival from Eclipse Diemos tonight… I can’t say I’m surprised, but I’ve still got a chill up my spine seeing it regardless. This man has proven time and time again why he is one of the most sadistic, maniacal personas to have ever haunted EAW. The path of destruction he’s been on since losing his EAW Championship at the Grand Rampage is only a fraction of what he’s done here.

Kawajai: HRDO shows no intimidation whatsoever, but I’m not entirely sure if that’s such a good idea! People NEED fear, but I don’t think HRDO was ever one to have such a thing! He’s spent all his life as a monstrous beast of a man, but now he finds himself up against a different kind of monster.

(Eclipse slides into the ring, leaving the lantern on the outside as his eyes never leave HRDO’s. He walks back and forth for a moment, pacing around him before coming to a full stop as the last lyrics fade in from the song. He raises his hand aiming his fingers like a gun towards HRDO’s skull as the song fades out, a smile carving its way across his face as the lights shoot on fully.)

(The Cage fully lowers around the ring as HRDO and Eclipse Diemos stand across from one another. The Referee calls for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: This Devil’s Pit Match is underway! Both men stare down, surrounded by that daunting barbed wire steel cage! There may be a door, but I guarantee you neither of these men are using it with all the barbed wire covering it! It’d be stunned if either could escape or WOULD escape! They didn’t step into this for any other reason!

Kawajai: And you can be damn sure HRDO made certain none of The Sanatorium will be able to get involved, especially inside this structure! Eclipse is mocking HRDO, looking absolutely out of his mind! HRDO remains stoic! ECLIPSE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER, LOOKING TO GET THINGS STARTED OFF! HE MISSES HIS TARGET AS HRDO ABRUPTLY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY WITH SOME SHOCKINGLY QUICK SPEED! HE’S GOT ECLIPSE TRAPPED IN THAT CORNER AS HE NAILS HIM WITH A HARD RIGHT HAND! ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! A ONE-HANDED UPPERCUT CONNECTS! THE LOOK OF ABJECT HATE IN THIS MAN, HRDO’S EYES! HE WRAPS A HAND AROUND THE THROAT OF ECLIPSE, TRYING TO CHOKE THE LIFE OUT OF HIM!!

WWEFan: And look at this! Eclipse is grinning! He’s got a sadistic smile on his face as Eclipse chokes him! HRDO SHAKES IT OFF AND LIFTS ECLIPSE UP!! CHOKESLAM!!!!

Kawajai: ECLIPSE WITH A KICK TO THE GROIN OF HRDO AS HE’S DROPPED DOWN TO HIS FEET! HE SLAPS THE HAND OF HRDO AWAY, MOCKING HIM! ECLIPSE GRABS HRDO AND SENDS HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE BARBED WIRE-COVERED CAGE WALL!! THE HAIR FROM THAT MASK IS CAUGHT IN THE BARBED WIRE AS ECLIPSE GRABS HIM ONCE MORE AND SENDS HRDO CRASHING HARD INTO THE WALL!! ECLIPSE WITH A SADISTIC SMILE ON HIS FACE AS HE PRESSES THE SKULL OF HRDO UP AGAINST THAT BARBED WIRE CAGE WALL!! HE’S BITING AT THE SKULL OF HRDO!! THIS GUY IS SICK!

WWEFan: You said it! Just when I think he’s gotten as depraved as he can be, he proves me wrong! ECLIPSE CAPS IT OFF WITH A VIOLENT HEADBUTT TO THE SKULL OF HRDO! Eclipse looks around at this crowd, laughing as he drops to his knees! The crowd here in East Rutherford looks none too happy about this as Eclipse rises back up to his feet… He turns his attention back to HRDO! ECLIPSE CHARGES FORWARD WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM!! ROOM 13!!!!

Kawajai: HRDO MANAGES TO DODGE OUT OF THE WAY AS THE BOOT OF ECLIPSE SLAMS HARD INTO THAT CAGE WALL!! ECLIPSE TURNS AROUND TO A ONE-HANDED UPPERCUT FROM HRDO! HRDO WRAPS A HAND AROUND THE THROAT OF ECLIPSE, LIFTING HIM UP!! HE SENDS ECLIPSE CRASHING HARD INTO THE CAGE WALL!!! THAT BARBED WIRE CLINGING TO THE ATTIRE AND FLESH ALIKE OF ECLIPSE DIEMOS!! HRDO STILL ISN’T DONE AS HE LIFTS ECLIPSE ONTO A SEATED POSITION ON THE TOP ROPE! ANOTHER UPPERCUT CONNECTS AS ECLIPSE DROPS DOWN BETWEEN THE ROPES AND THE CAGE!! HE’S TRAPPED UP AGAINST THAT BARBED WIRE STEEL!!

WWEFan: This crowd is on their feet! HRDO is in full control here! Things got off to a rocky start, but he’s in control and Eclipse is at his mercy! Eclipse is doing all he can to pull himself up, but that barbed wire continues to rip away at his flesh and clothes! HRDO CHARGES IN, BARRELING TOWARDS ECLIPSE!! RUNNING BIG BOOT!!! IT CONNECTS EMPHATICALLY AS ECLIPSE IS FORCED AGAINST THAT BARBED WIRE ONCE MORE!! HRDO DOESN’T STOP THERE AS HE TURNS ECLIPSE TOWARDS THE WALL, FORCING HIS FACE INTO IT!! ECLIPSE IS TRYING TO FIGHT BACK, BUT THIS MONSTER OF A MAN, HRDO, ISN’T GIVING UP!! HE’S GOT ECLIPSE’S FACE AGAINST THE BARBED WIRE, GRINDING IT!! MY GOD!!

Kawajai: BLOOD STARTS TO FLOW DOWN THE FACE OF ECLIPSE! HRDO IS ABSOLUTELY PUNISHING THIS MAN! MORE THAN I EXPECTED! HRDO WRAPS A HAND AROUND THE THROAT OF ECLIPSE, LIFTING HIM! Incredible strength from HRDO as he pulls Eclipse out from behind those ropes!! HE’S GOT ECLIPSE UP IN THE AIR AS HE TURNS AROUND… CHOKESLAM!!!! A MASSIVE CHOKESLAM CONNECTS AS ECLIPSE IS DRIVEN INTO THAT IRON CANVAS!!

WWEFan: ECLIPSE IMMEDIATELY SITS UP!?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! He’s showing HRDO that he’s far from dead! HE’S HURT, BUT HE SHOWS NO INTIMIDATION! He’s already covered in blood and his body has to be in agonizing pain from that chokeslam right onto that unforgiving iron, but he’s still alive in this! Unbelieveable! HRDO was hoping that would be all he needed to get rid of this man once and for all, but he’s gonna have to keep going! HRDO grasps at a handful of Eclipse’s hair, pulling him up! This crowd would love to see HRDO finish him off! Eclipse looks like he doesn’t have a prayer left in this! HRDO’s got him on his feet!

(HRDO does a cut-throat hand gesture in the face of Eclipse Diemos as the crowd loudly cheers)

Kawajai: AND THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE AS HRDO PICKS ECLIPSE UP!!! HE’S LOOKING FOR A TOMBSTONE RIGHT THERE ONTO THAT IRON CANVAS!!! ECLIPSE IS FIGHTING! HE’S FIGHTING WITH ALL HE’S GOT TO STOP IT! ECLIPSE ESCAPES OFF OF THE SHOULDER OF HRDO! HRDO QUICKLY TURNS AROUND! A ONE-HANDED UPPERCUT OF HIS OWN FROM ECLIPSE TO HRDO!! HE PICKS HRDO UP! SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS!! THE SPINE OF HRDO CRASHING HARD AGAINST THAT IRON CANVAS!! Eclipse doesn’t look done! HE KEEPS THE LEGS OF HRDO IN HIS GRASP AS HE STARTS SWINGING HIM! INCREDIBLE STRENGTH FROM ECLIPSE WITH INSANITY’S CRADLE – THIS GIANT SWING THAT SENDS THIS HUGE HRDO AROUND AND AROUND! ECLIPSE LETS IT GO AS HRDO GOES CRASHING INTO THE NEARBY BARBED WIRE COVERED WALL!! Just like that, Eclipse may have turned the tide! Eclipse is on his knees, wiping the blood from his face… And he tastes it! Eclipse with a sadistic smile as he tastes his own blood, staring at a defenseless HRDO against those ropes…

WWEFan: HRDO knows he has to keep the momentum going! He can’t let Eclipse take control! HRDO clutches those ropes, forcing himself up! LOOK OUT! A RUNNING ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL FROM ECLIPSE AS HRDO’S FACE SLAMS RIGHT INTO THE BARBED WIRE WALL!! Eclipse laughing once more! He looks like a kid on Christmas! He continues to mock HRDO, crawling on his knees to him! HRDO is hurt! There’s a good reason he stopped competing, and you’re seeing it! His body may be failing him as Eclipse drags him up, pushing him into the nearby corner!

Eclipse (no mic): COME ON, BIG MAN! PUNISH ME!

Kawajai: ECLIPSE WITH A BIG RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE OF HRDO AS HE MOCKS HIM! ECLIPSE TELLING HRDO TO PUNISH HIM! TELLING HIM TO SEND HIM TO THE PITS OF HELL! ECLIPSE STARTS UNLOADING INTO THE FACE OF HRDO WITH AN ONSLAUGHT OF SHOTS!! HE’S LAYING INTO HIM! Eclipse finally puts a stop to it as he casually walks out of the corner, laughing as the crowd boos! HRDO is struggling to keep himself up in the corner! ECLIPSE PROMPTLY GOES BACK TO IT, CHARGING IN!! A BIG RUNNING CROSSBODY CONNECTS IN THE CORNER!! HRDO NEARLY DROPS, BUT ECLIPSE DOESN’T LET HIM! HE’S NOT LETTING HIM GO ANYWHERE! ECLIPSE PULLS HRDO IN… SHOWING IMPRESSIVE STRENGTH AS HE PICKS HIM UP!! LOOKING FOR A BRAINBUSTER HERE!….

WWEFan: HRDO DROPS DOWN TO HIS FEET! HE’S GOT ECLIPSE, PICKING UP MOMENTUM! HE SENDS ECLIPSE CRASHING SKULL-FIRST INTO THE NEARBY CAGE WALL!! THE HAIR OF ECLIPSE CAUGHT BY THAT BARBED WIRE! HE PULLS HIMSELF OUT AND WOOZILY BACKS UP… HRDO’S GOT HIM!! GERMAN SUPLEX!!! HE’S NOT LETTING GO! HRDO ISN’T FINISHED WITH HIM AS HE DRAGS ECLIPSE BACK UP… AND A SECOND BRUTAL GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS AS THE SKULL OF ECLIPSE BOUNCES OFF THE IRON CANVAS!! HRDO DRAGS HIM BACK UP ONCE MORE, LOOKING FOR THE HAT TRICK! ECLIPSE FIGHTS BACK, THROWING AN ELBOW INTO THE FACE OF HRDO! ANOTHER ELBOW! He escapes the grasp of HRDO! Eclipse turns around as HRDO swings!

Kawajai: ECLIPSE NAILS HIM WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE! GLASGOW SMILE!!!! A VIOLENT DISCUS CLOTHESLINE NEARLY TAKES HRDO’S HEAD OFF OF HIS SHOULDERS AS HE DROPS TO THE CANVAS, LANDING HARD ON THE IRON!! The Referee checks on HRDO as Eclipse stumbles backwards, into the ropes! He’s covered in blood! If I didn’t know any better, I’d say it’s only fueled him! Eclipse with a sadistic look on his face! HRDO seems to still be able to keep going as Eclipse uses that as his chance to go for something even bigger here, making his way over to the corner… Eclipse is going up high! HE’S UP ON THE TOP!

(HRDO sits up as the crowd erupts with cheers)

WWEFan: HRDO IS UP! YOU CAN’T SEE HIS FACE, BUT YOU CAN FEEL THE COLD LOOK BEHIND THAT MASK! HE LOOKS STRAIGHT AT A SURPRISED ECLIPSE! HRDO’S QUICKLY RISING BACK TO HIS FEET! ECLIPSE NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING! HRDO WITH THAT SHOCKING AGILITY AS HE BURSTS FORWARD! HE NAILS ECLIPSE WITH A BIG RUNNING BOOT BEFORE ECLIPSE CAN PULL ANYTHING OFF!! HRDO WITH A SHOT TO ECLIPSE! ANOTHER SHOT! HE WRAPS A HAND AROUND HIS THROAT…. OH MY GOD–CHOKESLAM FROM HELL!!!!! A MASSIVE CHOKESLAM FROM HELL SENDS ECLIPSE DIEMOS FLYING OFF THE TOP AND CRASHING AND BURNING RIGHT INTO THAT IRON CANVAS!!

Kawajai: The Referee doesn’t hesitate to check on a lifeless Eclipse!! What a move that was! This has to be over!

WWEFan: Eclipse is somehow still moving! He can keep going! The Referee can’t call it over yet! HRDO’s second wind may have already come and gone! He’s looking hurt! He has no choice but to keep the attack going as he starts climbing up! Eclipse is a sitting duck here! HRDO wants to finish the job! He wants to get rid of this man once and for all! HRDO IS PERCHED!! DIVING HEADBUTT!!!!

Kawajai: IT MISSES AS ECLIPSE JUST BARELY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!! THE SKULL OF HRDO BOUNCES HARD OFF OF THAT IRON CANVAS UPON MISSING!! ECLIPSE MAY HAVE JUST COMPLETELY TURNED THE TIDE WITH THAT! HRDO LOOKS LIKE HE CAN BARELY MOVE! Eclipse forces himself to sit up! I can’t imagine how much blood this man has lost! He’s racing against the clock here! He has to capitalize on that dodge! He could pass out from bloodloss at any moment! Eclipse starts forcing himself to his feet… HRDO still barely able to move… Eclipse is on his feet as he reaches down, dragging HRDO up… Eclipse isn’t mocking him anymore! He’s not laughing! This man knows he has to end it! No more toying with him! ECLIPSE HAS HRDO UP!! HE PULLS HIM IN FOR MOTHER’S PRAYER–NO!! HRDO PUSHES ECLIPSE AWAY! GLASGLOW SMILE FROM ECLIPSE!!!!!

WWEFan: THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE IS NO GOOD AS HRDO CATCHES THE INCOMING ARM!! HE’S TRYING TO DRAG ECLIPSE DOWN!! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE SANDTRAP!!!! THAT CRIPPLER CROSSFACE IS ON THE HORIZON!! ECLIPSE IS FIGHTING IT!! HE BREAKS AWAY AND PICKS HRDO UP ON HIS SHOULDERS!! ECLIPSE CHARGES!! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER INTO THE BARBED WIRE CAGE WALL!!! BOTH MEN COLLAPSE TO THE CANVAS!! THEY’RE BEATEN AND THEY’RE BATTERED! ECLIPSE JUST WANTS TO PUT THIS MAN AWAY, AND THAT MIGHT HAVE DONE THE TRICK!

Kawajai: Eclipse sits up, utterly exhausted and bleeding profusely as the Referee tries to check on a motionless HRDO!

(HRDO abruptly sits up as a look of shock appears across the face of Eclipse while the fans erupt)

WWEFan: I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! HRDO SITS UP ONCE MORE! HOW?! ECLIPSE SLOWLY TURNS HIS HEAD TO LOCK EYES WITH HRDO! UNREAL! BOTH MEN SLOWLY RISE UP… ECLIPSE WITH A SHOT TO HRDO…. HRDO FIRES BACK WITH A RIGHT HAND OF HIS OWN! ECLIPSE WITH A HAYMAKER! HRDO RETURNS THE FAVOR! BOTH MEN EXCHANGING BLOWS HERE AS THEY CLIMB BACK TO THEIR FEET! ECLIPSE TAKES CONTROL, LAYING INTO HRDO WITH RAPID-FIRE SHOTS! ANOTHER AND ANOTHER! HE’S UNLOADING! ECLIPSE HITS THE ROPES AS HRDO BEGINS TO FALTER!! ROOM 13!!!!! THE RUNNING BIG BOOT CONNECTS!!!

Kawajai: HRDO DOESN’T GO DOWN!! HE ISN’T GOING DOWN AS HE WRAPS A HAND AROUND THE THROAT OF ECLIPSE!! HE PICKS HIM UP!!!

(The lights in MetLife Stadium go out)

WWEFan: Hold on! What’s going on?!

Kawajai: Is it The Sanatorium?! No way! They can’t possibly get in that ring!

(The lights come back on to a monstrous man standing just outside the ring, in front of the steps that lead to the Cage door as HRDO looks on from inside)

WWEFan: WHAT ON EARTH IS THAT?!

Kawajai: HE’S HUGE! WHO IS THAT?! HE’S GOT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH ECLIPSE FROM THE LOOKS OF HIM! HRDO ISN’T SURE WHAT TO MAKE OF THIS! HE’S NOBODY WE’VE SEEN BEFORE, BUT THIS MONSTER STARTS CLIMBING THE STEPS… HOW DOES HE EXPECT TO GET IN THERE?!

(The Monstrous Man grabs the barbed wire covering the cage door, pulling at it until it breaks)

WWEFan: MY GOD–HE’S JUST RIPPING OFF THE BARBED WIRE LIKE IT’S NOTHING! INCREDIBLE! HE JUST RIPPED OFF EVERY INCH OF BARBED WIRE!! THAT MONSTER’S YANKING AT THE DOOR NOW!! HE RIPS IT OFF ITS HINGES!! INSANE!! HOW DID HE DO THAT?! WHAT KIND OF STRENGTH DOES THIS GUY HAVE?! HRDO KNOWS WHAT’S ABOUT TO HAPPEN! THIS MONSTROUS MAN SLOWLY ENTERS THE RING AS HRDO LOOKS ON! HE’S EVEN BIGGER THAN HRDO! I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I’M SEEING!

Kawajai: ECLIPSE FROM BEHIND!! HE TURNS HRDO AROUND AND PULLS HIM IN!! MOTHER’S PRAYER!!!!!! HRDO IS DRIVEN FACE-FIRST INTO THE IRON CANVAS!! THE REFEREE TRIES TO CHECK ON HIM, BUT ECLIPSE PUSHES HIM AWAY! HE SAYS HE’S NOT DONE! ECLIPSE DRAGS HRDO BACK UP… HE SENDS HIM INTO THAT MONSTROUS MAN!! THAT MONSTER PULLS HRDO IN! PICKING HIM UP WITH EASE ON HIS SHOULDERS!!

(The Monstrous Man sends HRDO through the center of the ring with a Release Powerbomb as the crowd erupts)

WWEFan: JESUS CHRIST!!! HRDO HAS BEEN SWALLOWED BY THE DAMN RING!! WHAT POWER!! WHAT IS THIS MAN?!

Kawajai: HRDO HAS FALLEN THROUGH THE METAL FOLD IN THE RING! THE REFEREE IS CALLING IT! HRDO CAN’T CONTINUE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“You Are My Sunshine” by Alone plays all throughout MetLife Stadium as a maniacally-laughing Eclipse Diemos drops down to his knees with the Monstrous Man standing behind him)

Announcer: The Winner of this contest…. ECLIPSE DIIIIIIEEEEEMMMMOOOOSSSSS!!!!

WWEFan: I’m stunned, Kawa! What a turn of events! I never in my life would have expected Eclipse to pull out a weapon like this! I don’t know where he got him, but I don’t think I even want to know! That Monster just sent HRDO through the damn ring like it was nothing! Like it was NOTHING!

Kawajai: I’ve never seen Eclipse Diemos so damn elated! He’s loving it! He just conquered EAW’s most historic monster here at Pain For Pride, and what a way to do it! I can’t believe my eyes! That ace Eclipse had up his sleeve proved to be a crucial one!

WWEFan: I genuinely don’t know what becomes of HRDO now! He was straining his body as it was!

(Eclipse reaches into the hole within the ring for several moments before pulling out the mask of HRDO)

Kawajai: Eclipse rips off the mask of HRDO, holding it high up in the air like a trophy! As if it’s the actual head of HRDO, and it may as well be! Eclipse rises back to his feet as that Monster remains completely unmoving! I’ll be happy when these two are outta here!

WWEFan: A massive win for Eclipse tonight as he may have… Well, he may have just succeeded in his mission of destroying HRDO! I fear what this could mean moving on!

Eclipse Diemos: THE APOCALYPSE…. HAS ARRIVED!

(Eclipse proudly holds up the mask of HRDO for everyone to see as he and the Monstrous Man take their leave while the Barbed Wire Steel Cage is raised)

Kawajai: Well… Congratulations to Eclipse, I suppose… It was a massive victory, but… Yeah… I think we’re going to have to take a bit to fix the ring after what that Monster just did, so we will be back!

(The camera pans backstage to where we see Michael Belfort is standing backstage for an interview, as he has a smile on his face to show excitement, gripping onto his microphone tightly.)

Michael Belfort: Guys, I’ve landed a major interview for us here tonight, so I want everyone to welcome the man who looks to defend his world championship in one of tonight’s huge main events… THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… JAMIE O’HARA!

(The camera pans out to show Jamie O’Hara carrying the EAW World Heavyweight Championship on his shoulder, dressed in his ring attire for later tonight, as he has a determined look on his face.)

Michael Belfort: Well, you’ve made it, Jamie. After all of the struggle and setbacks that you’ve had to deal with over the years, you’ve finally made it here to Pain for Pride X as the EAW World Heavyweight Champion and have a match with Xavier Williams where it’s just you and him. Where is your mind at right now going into a match of this importance?

Jamie O’Hara: Michael, it’s been a long road to get where I’ve been here tonight. I’ve done some things that people might not have been proud of, had opportunities been ripped away from me because of it, but you’re looking at the EAW World Heavyweight Champion right now and I have to say that each and every decision I made… I would do it all again. I’ve done everything to make sure that I come into this match as the champion and the plan that I made to make it this far, it has been went through to completion. My mind is focused on doing one thing tonight and that’s leaving this place STILL your EAW World Heavyweight Champion.

 

Michael Belfort: What about your opponent, Xavier Williams? The both of you were tag team champions together, have dragged each other in a bitter war throughout for almost nine months, and now it comes to a conclusion here at Pain for Pride X. Anything you have to say to him here tonight before you meet in the ring?

Jamie O’Hara: That’s what this has all been about, hasn’t it? Xavier Williams. As things are concerned with him, I finally start to close the chapter of him tonight once and for all. Everything that has happened between us has led us to this point, the grand finale between us to see who is the best and deserves to hold this EAW World Heavyweight Championship, and that will be me. I don’t care how it happens, what I have to do to Xavier to make it that way, but I’m going to make sure that he remembers the four words that have brought this whole thing to fruition and why he won’t be able to dethrone me tonight.

The Mighty Don’t Kneel.

(Jamie O’Hara exits behind him as he leaves Michael Belfort to himself, as he looks over towards the camera, while it fades back to the arena.)

(The camera transitions back to the ring where the Extreme Enigma Elimination Trophy is shown just outside the ring)

Pierre: It’s time for a very highly-anticipated contest here tonight! A representative of each brand’s best has fought their way here, and not only are they competing for a chance to win the Extreme Enigma Elimination Match, but a mere two weeks ago, the stakes got even higher with the inclusion of the new EAW Openweight Championship!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, the following Four-Way Elimination Contest is the EXTREME ENIGMA ELIMINATION MATCH…. AND THE WINNER WILL BE CROWNED THE FIRST EVER EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!

(The crowd erupts with cheers)

(The camera cuts to four covered displays on the stage with a crew member standing next to them)

Announcer: And now introducing the Championship…. HERE THEY ARE…. THE VOLTAGE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

WWEFan: Wow! I’d love for Solomon to be able to take home that thing!

Announcer: THE SHOWDOWN OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

Pierre: You can be sure Ryan Marx is going to do absolutely everything he can to walk out of MetLife with that around his waist!

Announcer: THE EMPIRE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

StarrStan: I can’t wait to see Tarah bash each opponent’s brains in just like she did with Cleo – may she rest in peace.

Announcer: AND THE DYNASTY OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

Stew-O: I love it! A very unique Championship this is, and you can bet each of these competitors will do absolutely everything in their power to be the one to walk out of East Rutherford with it!

(“Heathens” by Twenty One Pilots plays all throughout the MetLife Stadium as a still visibly damaged Tarah Nova makes her way out to the stage dressed in attire similar to Harley Quinn as she makes her way out to the stage, looking at Empire’s Openweight Championship)

Announcer: Introducing first, making her way towards the ring, representing Empire!…… Hailing from Detroit, Michigan!…. She weighed in tonight at 119 Pounds!…. SHE IS THE NEW EMPIRE GENERAL MANAGER….. “THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE WOMEN’S DIVISION”…. TARAH NOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVAAAAAAAAA!!!….

Starr: She may be definitely in some pain after her Barbed Wire Death Match yesterday with Cleopatra, but you can be DAMN sure they hasn’t hindered someone like Tarah in the slightest! She came into Pain For Pride knowing perfectly well she would have to compete in two of the biggest matches of her life, and she shows no fear whatsoever!

(“Tempest” by Deftones plays all throughout MetLife Stadium as Ryan Marx makes his way out to the stage, dressed in black and white attire and a black leather jacket on with “MARX” written across the back and the Five Pillars symbol painted on the back in white underneath it. Marx looks at Showdown’s Openweight Championship for a few seconds before making his way towards the ring)

Announcer: Next, making his way towards the ring, representing Showdown!…. Hailing from London, England!…. He weighed in tonight at 260 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE ZEITGEIST”…. THIS IS RYAN MAAAAAAAARRRRRRRXXXXXXXXX!!!….

Pierre: Ryan Marx is an enigma of sorts all of his own – it’s hard to put a finger on him, but he’s proven time and time again why he’s a force to be reckoned with in EAW as one of the most promising young prospects this company has ever seen. He would love to make a name for himself and etch his name in the history books not only as the winner of the Extreme Enigma Elimination Match, but the first EVER Openweight Champion as well!

(“Heart Shaped Box” by Nirvana plays all throughout MetLife Stadium as the lights go out. A single dim spotlight illuminates the outline of Solomon Caine as he makes his way out to the stage, briefly glancing at the nearby Voltage Openweight Championship)

Announcer: Next, making his way towards the ring, representing Voltage!…. Hailing from Parts Unknown!…. He weighed in tonight at 240 Pounds!…. THIS IS SOLOMON CAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNEEEEEE!!!….

WWEFan: Now THIS is a guy that’s hard to put your finger on, Pierre! He’s one of the strangest competitors I’ve ever seen, but he’s proven to be very effective. He one of the most sadistic competitors you’ll come across, so in an environment like this, he could very well easily thrive.

(“i” by Kendrick Lamar plays all throughout MetLife Stadium as a fired up Target Smiles makes his way out to the stage in white, black, and red tights with a custom jacket on with a target on the back, making his way over to the Dynasty Openweight Championship, looking at it for several seconds before making his way down the ramp)

Announcer: And lastly, making his way towards the ring, representing Dynasty!…. Hailing from Parts Unknown!…. He weighed in tonight at 200 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE WANDERING WARRIOR”…. TARGET SMMMMMMMIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLEEEESSSSS!!!…..

Starr: Huh, we’ve got two people in this match from Parts Unknown? Think they’re neighbors?

Stew: Perhaps, but nonetheless, a very talented individual this man is, Target Smiles has absolutely dominated since arriving in EAW, quickly making a name for himself. The Openweight Championship has been his absolute focus as of late and all that stands in his way are the three competitors there in the ring with him.

(All four competitors stand in a corner of the ring before the Referee calls for the bell to begin the match)

(DING! DING! DING!)

WWEFan: AND THIS ONE IS UNDERWAY AS ALL FOUR COMPETITORS CHARGE RIGHT INTO ONE ANOTHER! TARGET AND RYAN CLASHING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH A STORM OF LEFTS AND RIGHTS WHILE SOLOMON CAINE GOES AT IT WITH TARAH NOVA!

Target with a stiff knee to the gut of Ryan! HE SENDS HIM STRAIGHT TO THE OUTSIDE! Target immediately changes his focus to Solomon and Tarah in the corner… HE CHARGES! TARGET ELEVATES HIMSELF OFF OF THE BACK OF SOLOMON FOR A LOUD KICK TO THE FACE OF TARAH!

Stew: What a move! Target’s back to his feet as Caine turns around! He swings with a big forearm, but nobody’s home as Target sidesteps it! A HIGH KICK CONNECTS OFF THE SKULL OF SOLOMON! Target now with a snapmare, placing Solomon in a seated position near the center of the ring! TARGET QUICKLY HITS THE ROPES! INCOMING!

Pierre: AND HE’S CUT OFF BY A BIG RUNNING DROPKICK FROM TARAH NOVA OUT OF THAT CORNER!! She was already looking for her receipt for that kick! Target is down as Tarah grabs a hold of him, pulling him back to his feet! She’s got Target trapped up against the ropes as she lays into him with rapid-fire forearms! She’s laying into him! HOLD ON–RYAN MARX FROM BEHIND WITH A CHAIR SHOT RIGHT TO THE SPINE OF TARAH!! RYAN WASTING NO TIME BRINGING WEAPONS INTO THIS CONTEST AS A DAMAGED TARAH TURNS AROUND!

RYAN PICKS HIM UP IN A SUPLEX POSITION!

Starr: TARGET’S FIGHTING IT! HE DRIVES A KNEE DOWN INTO THE SKULL OF RYAN! ANOTHER KNEE! Target escapes, landing on his feet behind Marx! He sends Marx forward! MARX JUMPS ONTO THAT CHAIR, USING IT TO LEAP OFF FOR–

HE COULD BE BUSTED OPEN! HOLD ON NOW–TARGET WITH A WAIST LOCK FROM BEHIND ON SOLOMON BEFORE HE CAN GET UP! TARGET SHOWING AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF STRENGTH AS HE DEADLIFTS SOLOMON UP! Solomon isn’t letting a potential suplex come to fruition as he throws an elbow back, right into the jaw of Target! Another elbow connects as Solomon breaks away from Target’s grasp! He turns around and swings! TARGET DUCKS, SENDING SOLOMON UP AND OVER, CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE! Target can smell blood in the water! Solomon struggles to get to his feet on the outside…

Pierre: TARGET HITS THE ROPES! INCOMING! A BIG BASEBALL SLIDE CONNECTS INTO SOLOMON, SENDING HIM CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE! Target doesn’t look finished just yet! He looks as fired up as he’s ever been as he focuses completely on Solomon Caine on the outside! HE’S READY FOR SOMETHING BIG AS HE HITS THE ROPES ONCE MORE!!

Stew: AND THE BARRELING TARGET IS CUT OFF OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A DRIVE-BY YAKUZA KICK FROM TARAH NOVA!! TARGET IS DAZED! TARAH GRABS TARGET AND SENDS HIM THROUGH THE ROPES, CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE, NEXT TO CAINE! Tarah looks around at the roaring fans here in MetLife Stadium before looking at the two men down on the outside! She nods, looking for something big as she immediately climbs up the nearby corner! I can’t imagine what she’s thinking – how often does she go up this high?! She’s not even looking at the two opponents below! Target and Caine rise to their feet! TARAH LEAPS!! MOONSAULT!!!

Starr: A BEAUTIFUL MOONSAULT CONNECTS ONTO SOLOMON AND TARGET ON THE OUTSIDE!! WHAT A MOVE! BUT HOLD ON! LOOK AT THIS! RYAN MARX IS BACK ON HIS FEET INSIDE THE RING, EYING ALL THREE OPPONENTS ON THE OUTSIDE! He still looks hurt after that DDT onto the seat of that chair, but he’s fired up! RYAN WANTS TO PUNISH ALL THREE OF HIS OPPOSITION AS HE HITS THE ROPES!! HERE HE COMES!

WWEFan: HE’S STOPPED DEAD IN HIS TRACKS AS TARAH NOVA RUSHES FORWARD TO CATCH HIM WITH A BIG FOREARM SMASH TO THE FACE JUST AS HE GOES THROUGH THE ROPES!! TARAH DOESN’T STOP THERE AS SHE NAILS RYAN WITH MULTIPLE FOREARMS TO THE FACE!! Tarah immediately searches underneath the ring apron as a damaged Ryan Marx drops back inside the ring, regretting that potential suicide dive attempt! TARAH PULLS OUT A TRASH CAN FULL OF WEAPONS AS SHE TOSSES IT INTO THE RING! She’s looking to torture her opponent here as Tarah rolls back in, laser-focused on a damaged Ryan! Tarah pulls a kendo stick out of the trash can, looking to make good use of it! Ryan struggles to get back up to his feet! TARAH SWINGS THAT KENDO STICK RIGHT INTO THE GUT OF RYAN!

Pierre: AND SHE DOESN’T STOP THERE AS SHE SWINGS NAILS RYAN IN THE FACE WITH ANOTHER VICIOUS SHOT WITH THAT KENDO STICK!! SHE SWINGS IT DOWN INTO THE SPINE OF RYAN NOW AS HE DROPS DOWN TO HIS KNEES IN PAIN! TARAH DROPS THAT KENDO STICK AND CONNECTS WITH A LOUD SUPERKICK TO THE FACE OF A KNEELING RYAN MARX!! SHE DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER, HOPING FOR THE FIRST ELIMINATION OF THIS MATCH!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!………. TWO!!!!!!!!

Stew: AND RYAN GETS A SHOULDER UP! He’s not done in this contest just yet! Tarah knows she’s gotta keep the momentum going! She could still be on the verge of a big elimination here as she pulls Ryan back up to his knees and nails him with a hard forearm to the face! She grabs that nearby trash can… Dumping out all of its contents! TARAH SLIDES THAT TRASH CAN AROUND THE UPPER BODY OF RYAN!!

Stew: AND TARAH GETS A SHOULDER UP! SHE’S STILL ALIVE AND KICKING! You’ve got to be wondering how much damage she’s taken, not only in this match, but her contest with Cleopatra only yesterday! Target looks to capitalize on the damage done to her as he clutches the hair of Tarah, dragging her up… HE PULLS HER IN! BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!!

Starr: SOLOMON CAINE OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A BLACK BAG THAT HE SWINGS RIGHT INTO THE SPINE OF TARGET!! A DAMAGED TARGET TURNS AROUND AS SOLOMON SWINGS THAT BLACK BACK RIGHT INTO HIS FACE!!

Stew: And we have our first elimination!

Announcer: TARAH NOVA HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!!

Starr: Aw damn it! This means Empire just fell to the back of the line for challenging for the Openweight Championship, but it wasn’t fair! She had to compete in two matches!

WWEFan: All’s fair in love and war, Starr! Tarah knew what she was getting into! It was just too much damage! And now look at the grin on the face of Solomon! He’s covered in those thumbtacks, but it looks like it doesn’t even faze him! Target’s still pulling those thumbtacks out on the outside as Ryan Marx rolls into the ring, behind Solomon! Ryan charges in! Solomon somehow has it scouted as he ducks under the incoming lariat of Ryan! Marx turns around! THERE’S A KICK TO THE GUT FROM SOLOMON!! HE PULLS MARX IN!! HE’S GOT HIM UP!

Pierre: NO–RYAN’S FIGHTING IT WITH EVERYTHING IN HIS BEING! HE DRIVES A KNEE DOWN INTO THE SKULL OF SOLOMON! SOLOMON WON’T LET HIM GO! ANOTHER KNEE DOWN INTO THE SKULL FROM RYAN! Ryan thankfully escapes, dropping down to his feet! A BLUNT ELBOW SMASH CONNECTS RIGHT INTO THE JAW OF SOLOMON FROM MARX! A SECOND ELBOW CONNECTS AS SOLOMON IS LOOKING DAZED!! A THIRD NAILS THE JAW OF SOLOMON AS HE WOOZILY BACKPEDALS INTO THE ROPES… SOLOMON BURSTS FORWARD WITH MALICIOUS INTENT IN HIS EYES!! RYAN SENDS HIM UP! POP-UP POWERBOMB!!! A VICIOUS POP-UP POWERBOMB SENDS SOLOMON CAINE CRASHING DOWN ONTO MORE OF THOSE THUMBTACKS!!

Starr: Target Smiles rolls back into the ring as the Referee desperately tries to kick those thumbtacks out of the ring! Ryan’s focused on Solomon, he has no idea Target is right behind him, waiting to strike! TARGET BARRELS STRAIGHT TOWARDS RYAN MARX!! RYAN TURNS AROUND AND JUST BARELY MANAGES TO SIDESTEP THE INCOMING YAKUZA KICK FROM TARGET!! TARGET TURNS AROUND TO EAT A BIG ELBOW SMASH TO THE FACE, COURTESY OF MARX!! TARGET IS FALTERING!

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

Stew: AND TARGET KICKS OUT THIS TIME! He’s still alive! Solomon hoped he had it there, but Target keeps going! Solomon looks more amused than anything as he makes his way back to his feet, keeping his focus on Target… Solomon looks towards the nearby corner… He’s making his way over to it, climbing up! How often do we see this?! SOLOMON ASCENDS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, LOOKING TO POTENTIALLY FINISH OFF TARGET, OR EVEN RYAN MARX!

WWEFan: Caine is in a bad spot here! He needs to do something! HE RISES TO HIS FEET AS TARGET LEAPS TO THE TOP!! INCOMING!!! SPRINGBOARD CORKSCREW ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!!!

Pierre: IT MISSES AS SOLOMON MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY IN TIME!! HE HAD IT SCOUTED! TARGET IS SCRAMBLING TO GET TO HIS FEET, BUT SOLOMON IS UP FIRST AS HE CATCHES TARGET WITH A KICK TO THE GUT!

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

Stew: TARGET WITH A SHOULDER UP! TARGET WITH A SHOULDER UP! HE’S STILL ALIVE AND SOLOMON CAN’T BELIEVE IT! He thought it was over!

Announcer: SOLOMON CAINE HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!!…..

Starr: And then there were two! Ryan Marx and Target Smiles are all that are left in this contest! Dynasty or Showdown will be leaving Pain For Pride with the Extreme Enigma Elimination Match under their belt and the Openweight Championship around their waist! Ryan Marx is back in this, and with another steel chair in hand as he slithers into the ring, sneaking up on an unsuspecting Target! Target struggles to get back to his feet, still feeling the effects of that End of Ages he took earlier! HE’S UP AS HE TURNS AROUND! RYAN DRIVES THE END OF THAT CHAIR INTO THE GUT OF TARGET! TARGET DOUBLES OVER IN PAIN! RYAN SWINGS THAT CHAIR LOUDLY OFF THE SPINE OF TARGET NOW!! RYAN SWINGS IT DOWN AGAIN! AND AGAIN!! RYAN UNFOLDS THE CHAIR, TAKING A SEAT AS HE LOOKS DOWN OVER TARGET! HE’S MOCKING THIS MAN! HE–

WWEFan: TARGET WITH A KICK TO THE HEAD OF AN UNSUSPECTING MARX FROM DOWN ON THE GROUND!! That got him right in the temple! Ryan is in pain here as he drops down, rolling to the outside! Target’s desperate to keep all of this going as he rolls out to a different corner of the ring! Both men now searching underneath the apron for a weapon! RYAN PULLS OUT A SLEDGEHAMMER FROM BENEATH THE RING! HE’S LOOKING TO DEAL SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE WITH THAT THING! RYAN SEES TARGET, MAKING HIS WAY TOWARDS HIM! HE PICKS UP SPEED!! INCOMING!

Stew: TARGET PULLS OUT A TABLE AND DRIVES IT RIGHT INTO THE GUT OF RYAN BEFORE HE COULD CONNECT WITH THAT SLEDGEHAMMER!! Target slides the table into the ring before grabbing Marx, sending him rolling back in! Marx struggles to get back to his feet as Target slides in! HE CATCHES MARX! BASEMENT DDT PLANTS MARX RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS!! MARX IS IN DIRE STRAITS HERE! HE NEEDS SOME SORT OF SAVING GRACE, BUT I DON’T THINK HE’S GONNA FIND IT! NOT TODAY! IT’S PAIN FOR PRIDE AND THIS MAN, TARGET SMILES, IS INTENT ON WALKING OUT OF HERE WITH THIS VICTORY! HE’S GOT THE WEIGHT OF DYNASTY ON HIS SHOULDERS! HE GRABS THE TABLE, SETTING IT UP! Ryan is stirring!

Starr: This crowd is on their feet! They’re ready! Target drags Ryan up! HE’S GOT HIM! SPINEBUSTER THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

TARGET DOING ALL HE CAN TO END THIS!! RYAN IS STRUGGLING!! HE FORCES HIS BODY FORWARD, SENDING TARGET CRASHING INTO THE RINGPOST IN THE CORNER!! Ryan barely saved himself there! That look of hate on his face for this man! That victory roll is exactly what cost him a match against Target back on Showdown! Ryan rises to his feet, making his way over to Target! He pulls Target out of the corner… Navigating him over to the corner closest to that table! He’s looking for the end here! HE SETS TARGET UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! MARX CLIMBS UP THERE! HE’S GOT HIM UP!!! NEW HEIGHTS II!!!!!

Stew: TARGET STOPS THE POTENTIAL VERTICAL SUPLEX DDT WITH A KNEE DOWN INTO THE SKULL OF MARX! ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER CONNECTS AS TARGET ESCAPES THROUGH THE LEGS OF MARX!

(A replay is shown of Target Smiles crashing to the apron from a One-Handed Chokeslam by Ryan Marx)

WWEFan: Both men are absolutely exhausted! Ryan can’t even follow it up! Look at this though! Target isn’t giving up! He’s still moving! He’s clutching the ropes, pulling himself up on the apron!

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

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Tempest” by Deftones plays all throughout MetLife Stadium as the Referee raises the hand of a downed Ryan Marx)

Pierre: He did it! Ryan Marx pulled it off! What an unbelievable match!

Announcer: The Winner of this contest…. AND NEEEEEEEEWWWWWWW EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION….. RYAN MAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRXXXXXX!!!!

Stew: I hate to see Dynasty lose it and Target lose it after all he’s done, but Ryan showed just as much talent in that contest! All four competitors tore one another apart! I would have been happy to see any of them walk out of here with this win!

(A damaged Ryan Marx is helped up as he’s handed the Extreme Enigma Elimination Match Trophy and Showdown’s EAW Openweight Championship)

Starr: Yeah, that’s great and all, but let’s not forget what a disadvantage Tarah was at out there! If she hadn’t just put her body through a brutal contest yesterday–

WWEFan: We get it, Starr!

Starr: I’m just saying!

Pierre: Well nonetheless, this is undoubtedly the biggest win of that young man’s career and a night he surely will never forget, and a fantastic effort by Tarah Nova, Solomon Caine, and Target Smiles! All four did everything they could to win out there and put on one Hell of a contest!

(Ryan Marx raises the Showdown Openweight Championship into the air with a smirk on his face, still cringing from the pain)

Stew: And now begins the defenses of that Openweight Championship, and by the eliminations in this contest, it’ll be Dynasty challenging first, Voltage challenging second, and Empire challenging third! Ryan Marx has a long road ahead of him if he wants to prove himself and take a step towards a World Championship! Nonetheless, congratulations to Ryan Marx!

(The camera transitions somewhere in the bowels of the building where a focused Brian Daniels is shown in his ring gear, shadow boxing)

Pierre: What a night it’s been so far, and still to come is that man’s match. The final time he will ever step inside an EAW ring to compete, Brian Daniels is more determined than he’s ever been to walk of East Rutherford victorious.

Cherish: This is something he’s been working towards for years, Pierre, and he’s readying himself for it up to the very end. He’s going all out, you can be sure about that!

(Brian Daniels continues to train as the camera fades to an ad)

(The lights dim in the stadium as a video package begins to play showing footage from the 2016 Showdown Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road to Redemption.)

(The Pizza Boy is shown pinning Ares Vendetta to win the Answer World Championship for the first time.)

“And who are you?, the Proud Lord said…”

(Lannister is shown the same night, raising the Cash In The Vault briefcase having just defeated Lioncross and Tiberius Jones for it.)

“That I must bow so low?”

(A still of an exasperated Pizza Boy cuts to Lannister racing down the ramp to cash in his contract just minutes after the Pizza Boy had claimed the Answers World Championship.)

“Only a cat of a different coat…”

(The film cuts to their first rematch. Both men square up in a triple threat with Tyler Parker.)

“That’s all the truth I know…”

(Lannister is shown once again holding the Answers World Championship, having retained and ended the career of Tyler Parker in the process.)

“In a coat of gold or a coat of red…”

(Lannister wearing the championship fades to the bloodied face of the Pizza Boy as he sits solemnly in the ring.)

“A lion still has claws…”

(Brian Daniels is shown falling to Feuer Frei, followed by a montage of the subsequent challengers – Ryan Marx, Nico Borġ, Y2impact and the Heart Break Gal meeting the same fate.)

“And mine are long and sharp, my lord…”

(A montage is shown of the Pizza Boy in the Grand Rampage eliminating Kelly Hackenschmidt, Lars Grier, Tiberius IV and Nasir Moore.)

“As long and sharp as yours…”

(It comes to its climax with a slow motion shot of the Pizza Boy hitting TLA with the Final Delivery on the apron to win the Grand Rampage and book his rematch here at Pain For Pride. As TLA’s feet hit the ground “The Cowboy Song” by Faith No More erupts from the speakers around the stadium. The Pizza Boy rides out through the curtain on a delivery scooter to rapturous applause from the fans.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Ring Announcer: The following contest is for one fall…and is for the ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! Introducing first, the challenger…from New York, New York…weighing in at 175 pounds…HE IS THE 2017 GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER…”THE SELF-PROCLAIMED NOBODY”… THE PIZZA BOOOOYYY!!!

(Despite the reception, he appears nonplussed and looks down away from the crowd as if unable to confront them. Sucking in a deep breath, he revs the little 50cc engine up ready to motor down the ramp. But fireworks and pyro erupt all around the stage, taking him aback and causing him to nearly tumble off the scooter. Running his hand over his scalp in nervous frustration, he looks up to deliver a weak smile before reverting back to sombre-faced focus. He finally rides his way down the ramp, looking ahead and refusing to acknowledge the fans. He circles halfway around the ring before hopping off and rolling in under the ropes.)

Cherish: Well it has been a long road, and a hell of a bumpy ride. But he has done it. Against all odds, the Pizza Boy outlasted 29 other men to earn his big Showdown for the Answers World Championship here at Pain For Pride. I can’t believe how far this guy has come.

Pierre: But some things will never change. In spite of everything, the one time nobody hasn’t forgotten where he has came from and that is reflected in his choice of transportation into the arena here tonight. He a has been a few things in the past. Once a Delivery Boy. Twice a cash-in victim. And often a punching bag. But he is also a former Answers World Champion who has defied the odds time after time. Tonight, he might just cement himself in history.

(The music and lights once again dims down. Streams of people dressed in rags and holding torches flood out from behind the curtain. They kneel, lining the ramp as they raise their torches above their heads. “Brave Soldat” composed by Sean Murray hits the speakers as something large appears to be being lowered down onto the stage.)

Cherish: What is that?

Pierre: Is it… oh my!

(As it nears the bottom, the object becomes clearer to see. It is Lannister sat upon the Iron Throne. He is dressed in what appears to be a cape woven from the hides of beasts; a patchwork of lions, tigers and wolves. On his head he wears a mantle shaped like the head of an eagle, and around his waist the Answers World Championship. He remains seated for a moment as the crowd lambast him with boos, glaring wildly at the Pizza Boy in the ring. Athena Vendetta, likewise crowned, steps out from the curtain and clutches his hand. Lannister rises shrugging off his cape to display his ripped physique before marching stalwartly down to the ring. )

Ring Announcer: And his opponent…from Dortmund, Germany…weighing in at 252 pounds…HE IS THE REIGNING, DEFENDING, ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION…”THE ELITE-LORD”… LAAANNNIISSTTEEEEERRR!!!

Pierre: Well, I guess you could say that the eagle has landed. Lannister descending onto the stage and making quite the entrance as we prepare for this title matchup. The message is clear. Showdown. EAW. The Answers World Championship. This is his empire, and he is going to defend that claim as jealously and savagely as needed here tonight.

Cherish: And what a claim he has. Forget the cash in, just look at the names that tried and failed to take that title off him since. From top prospects like Ryan Marx and the new Mr Cash In The Vault Nico Borġ. To Hall of famers like Brian Daniels, Mr. Seven Reigns Y2impact and Tyler Parker who hasn’t been seen nor heard from since. Lannister has to go down as one of the most dominant champions in EAW history.

Pierre: He makes his case for sure. It’s hard to overestimate how resilient the Pizza Boy is. We’ve learned that. But tonight he might just have bitten off more pizza than he can chew.

(Lannister hands off his Answers World Championship off to the referee, as the fans start a loud “PIZZA BOY!” chant, “Brave Soldat” fades away, leaving Lannister and The Pizza Boy with a cold stare at one another…)

Cherish: You could cut the tension in the air with a butter knife..

(The referee proceeds to present the Answers World Championship to The Pizza Boy, then centers himself to raise the title for the New Jersey crowd to see)

Pierre: You’ll only get this at the pinnacle of all wrestling, Pain for Pride! There’s no other event like it!

(The referee hands the Answers World Championship off to the timekeeper, before centering himself in the ring again, he calls for the bell)

Cherish: HERE WE GO!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Pierre: It’s finally time! I’ve been waiting for this match for far too long! The Pizza Boy versus Lannister has officially begun! The fans are on their feet as the two slowly approach one another from their respective corners. The Pizza Boy is staring blankly at Lannister, who appears to have a cocky grin upon his face! AND OH! THE PIZZA BOY WITH A RIGHT HAND SLAP RIGHT ACROSS LANNISTER’S CHEEK! Lannister grasps at his cheek, BUT CHARGES FORWARDS! HE BUTTS HEADS WITH THE PIZZA BOY! THE TWO ARE IN EACH OTHERS FACES SHOUTING! AND A STIFF FOREARM DELIVERED BY A PIZZA BOY! ANOTHER STIFF FOREARM TO FOLLOW THE FIRST! But Lannister has not moved an inch! Lannister is taking those forearms willingly! Is he… smiling? Lannister is seemingly begging for another! THE PIZZA BOY DOES NOT DISAPPOINT! THERE’S A THIRD STIFF RIGHT FOREARM ACROSS THE HEAD OF LANNISTER! BUT ONCE AGAIN IT HARDLY DOES ANYTHING! Lannister once again bursts forward in The Pizza Boy’s face! The Pizza Boy swings for another! Lannister throws his arm up in protection! GOOD GOD! A LOUD HEADBUTT CRACKING THE PIZZA BOY RIGHT IN THE SKULL! THAT HEADBUTT COULD BE HEARD ALL OVER THE METLIFE STADIUM!

Cherish: The Pizza Boy is left wobbling around in the ring! I don’t know if he’s going to keep his balance for much longer! Lannister takes this time to hit the ropes! He comes sprinting back at the sitting duck that is The Pizza Boy! The Pizza Boy steps forward… RIGHT INTO A RUNNING KNEE SMASH ACROSS THE GUT OF THE PIZZA BOY! The Pizza Boy is sent flipping over the knee! The Pizza Boy clutches his stomach, eyes widened after that devastating blow! Lannister goes ahead and drags The Pizza Boy back up onto his feet! He’s not letting any recovery time! He wants to make an example out of Lannister! Lannister this time whips The Pizza Boy into the ropes! Lannister awaits in the middle of the ring for the rebounding Pizza Boy! Lannister is right there to… TOSSES HIM UP HIGH INTO THE AIR! IS LANNISTER ALREADY THINKING OF FEUER FREI?! THE PIZZA BOY COMES CRASHING DOWN, BUT MANAGES TO GRAB A HOLD OF LANNISTER’S ARM?! HE’S GOT HIM TRAPPED IN AN ARM BAR! THE PIZZA BOY SOMEHOW MANAGED TO DRAG LANNISTER’S ARM INTO AN ARMBAR! BUT LANNISTER IS REFUSING TO COLLAPSE! I don’t know how in the world The Pizza Boy even pulled that off!

Pierre: Me either, but he’s refusing to let go! He’s trying to pull Lannister down in that arm bar! He’s hanging on like a spider monkey! But Lannister—LANNISTER IS LIFTING THE PIZZA BOY UP WITH ONE ARM?! LANNISTER… IS SPINNING THE PIZZA BOY AROUND WITH ONE ARM! A UNIQUE VERSION OF THE SWING? I can’t imagine that this is assisting the pain shooting up in Lannister’s arm right now! But he’s going around and around! You can see the pain that the arm is going through with Lannister’s facial expression! But he is able to toss The Pizza Boy off his arm! Or did The Pizza Boy release? I couldn’t really tell! Lannister steps away momentarily to aid his arm, while The Pizza Boy is dizzily arising onto both feet! He sets his sights on Lannister! The Pizza Boy runs toward him! HOWEVER, LANNISTER BURSTS FORWARD WITH A BIG BOOT! The Pizza Boy just narrowly ducking underneath and running to the ropes! THE PIZZA BOY SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES! Lannister spins around! SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY!!! NO!!! Lannister catches The Pizza Boy in his arms and shifts him up onto his shoulders in a fireman’s carry position!

Cherish: But The Pizza Boy wastes no time in driving those sharp elbow into the temple of Lannister! One elbow after another! Just enough to give him time to slide off and behind Lannister! STIFF FOREARM TO THE BACK OF LANNISTER’S SKULL! That was highly unexpected and a very strategic strike performed by The Pizza Boy! Strike when they can’t expect it! Lannister stumbles forward… The Pizza Boy follows in pursuit! The Pizza Boy pulls Lannister in! Is he potentially thinking of going for…? HE IS! GERMAN SUPLEX! A MOVE THAT LANNISTER USES QUITE OFTEN!!!… NOT TODAY THOUGH! Lannister throws back several elbows before The Pizza Boy could even lift him off the canvas! The Pizza Boy backs off for now—SPINNING CLOTHESLINE TO THE PIZZA BOY!!!… DUCKED! THE PIZZA BOY DUCKS! Lannister turns around RIGHT INTO A DROP TOE-HOLD! LANNISTER GOES FACE FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! His head bounces viciously off that! Lannister grasps his head, but The Pizza Boy is right there behind him! He knows he has to keep the offensive side of this match in his favor! And The Pizza Boy is stepping back? What’s he got up his sleeve?

Pierre: Surely nothing favorable for the Answers World Champion! The Pizza Boy measures him up! The Pizza Boy rapidly shaking his head! He sprints! RUNNING DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL! LANNISTER’S HEAD ONCE AGAIN COLLIDES WITH THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! Lannister collapses onto his stomach, but is rolling out of the ring! He’s playing this smart! The Pizza Boy back onto his feet, takes a look to the outside! And look at this unbreakable relationship! Athena is right there at Lannister’s aid as she should be! She’s assisting Lannister back onto his feet! Hey! WAIT! WHAT IS—THE PIZZA BOY HITS THE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE!!!! SUICIDE DIVE ONTO BOTH LANNISTER AND ATHENA! THAT’S UNCALLED FOR! THAT’S UNNECESSARY! THE PIZZA BOY TAKES OUT BOTH ATHENA AND LANNISTER IN ONE GO! He rolls back onto his feet, looking down with pleasure! I’m sure he’s happy to have Athena out of the picture! I’m not though! The referee is currently informing The Pizza Boy to bring the match back into the ring! But I think The Pizza Boy has something else planned for Lannister! The Pizza Boy is slowly dragging Lannister back to a vertical base! The referee has begun his count inside of the ring!

Cherish: THE PIZZA BOY SPEARS LANNISTER’S SPINE INTO THE APRON! LANNISTER’S SPINE BENDING IN NO NORMAL WAY THAT A SPINE SHOULD BEND! AND THEN THE PIZZA BOY PROCEEDS TO THROW LANNISTER SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! I can’t imagine how satisfying this is for him! He’s giving out the punishment that he’s taken time after time at the hands of his opponent! The referee has made it to a five count! The Pizza Boy cannot win the Answers World Championship off a count out! Oh–OH NO! The Pizza Boy takes Lannister by the wrist, setting his sights over at the steel steps! I don’t think he’s close to being through with Lannister! THE PIZZA BOY WHIPS LANNISTER SO VIOLENTLY WITH ALL HIS MIGHT TO THE STEELS STEPS! BUT LANNISTER CHANGES HIS COURSE?! LANNISTER CHARGES INTO THE RING INSTEAD! The Pizza Boy stunned by this also follows into the ring! He breaks the count at seven! Lannister is up! Pizza Boy is there too! BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX!!! LANNISTER TOSSES THE PIZZA BOY OVERHEAD ACROSS THE RING ALMOST INSTANTANEOUSLY UPON MEETING EACH OTHER ON THEIR FEET! The Pizza Boy clutches his lower back, wincing in pain! That sudden burst from Lannister surely put a stop to Pizza Boy’s momentum!

Pierre: Lannister still recovering from the ringside attack he endured! He slowly paces himself when approaching The Pizza Boy… The Pizza Boy slowly rising onto a knee! And Lannister with pure disrespect with a slap across the head! There’s a second disrespectful slap! BUT THE PIZZA BOY SHOOTS UP ONTO HIS FEET INTO LANNISTER’S FACE! HEADBUTT! HEADBUTT! THESE TWO ARE VICIOUSLY DRIVING EACH OTHER’S HEAD INTO THE OTHERS! I THINK I CAN SEE BLOOD TRICKLING FROM BOTH OF THEIR HEADS! EACH HEADBUTT VIOLENTLY CONNECTING! LANNISTER THOUGH! LANNISTER LIFTS PIZZA BOY UP! SPRINTS! AND SLAMS HIM SPINE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! The Pizza Boy woozily trying to step out, but Lannister tosses him right back in! Lannister connects with consecutive blows to the head of Pizza Boy! And oh great! Lannister is lifting The Pizza Boy in a seated position on that top rope! This spells awful news for The Pizza Boy! The Pizza Boy throws effortless punches into Lannister! Clearly not hard enough to do any damage whatsoever! Where is Lannister going though?! Lannister exits out onto the apron! He’s climbing up behind The Pizza Boy! I don’t even know—OH…

Cherish: NO LANNISTER! DON’T DO THIS! HE CLIMBS UP AND IS PULLING THE PIZZA BOY UP! I THINK HE’S GOING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX! GERMAN SUPLEX TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! COME ON! DON’T DO IT! OH! YES! THE PIZZA BOY IS FIGHTING BACK! HE’S FIGHTING WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS! HE DOES NOT WANT THIS TO GO THROUGH! BUT LANNISTER IS DRIVING HIS HEAD INTO THE THE BACK OF THE PIZZA BOY’S SKULL! HEADBUTTING THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! The Pizza Boy’s attempt to break this up ends up futile! NO! LANNISTER!!!… LANNISTER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX TO THE ARENA FLOOR! OH MY GOD!!! BOTH OF THESE MEN GO CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE! NEITHER MEN MOVING AN INCH! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS! I REALLY CAN’T! THEY’RE MOTIONLESS! THE REFEREE STARES SHOCKED AS HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO! I think he may have no choice but to once again start up the ten count! The fans here in New Jersey are on their feet with deafening cheers!

(Replays of the German Suplex to the outside are showed in many different angles)

Cherish: They can’t even believe what they just witnessed! This is absolute insanity! The referee slides out of the ring to check on them, but rolls back in! Here we go! The ten count begins!

Referee: ONE!!!… TWO!!!… THREE!!!…

Pierre: This surely can’t end in a draw! Can it?!

Referee: FOUR!!!…

Pierre: THAT’S TEN! THE REFEREE SIGNALS—AT ATHENA?! HE SPOTTED ATHENA! HE STOPPED THE COUNT! AND… HE’S THROWING ATHENA OUT! HE’S EXILED ATHENA FROM THE REST OF THIS MATCH! THAT MONSTER!

(The Pizza Boy smiles and waves back at Athena throwing a tantrum, as Lannister gets up on his knees, pleading to the referee for Athena…)

Cherish: There’s nothing you can do, Lannister! Athena has just been tossed out of this match! The playing field is even—ROLL UP!!! THE PIZZA BOY ROLLS UP LANNISTER WHILE HE WAS SPEAKING TO THE REFEREE! THAT SNEAKY PIZZA DEVIL!

Referee: ONEEE!!!… TWOO!!!…

Pierre: Lannister kicks out at two ever so quickly! The two find themselves rushing back to their feet once again! Lannister is met with a sluggish right hand! Pizza Boy is met with a stiff left! Pizza Boy with a right! Lannister with a left! They’re exchanging plentiful blows to the head! They’re not worrying about protecting themselves! They’re putting it all on the line for this one night! But Lannister is getting the better of The Pizza Boy right here! He’s catching him with several lefts! The Pizza Boy is becoming overwhelmed! Lannister has him where he wants him—SHOOT KICK ACROSS THE THIGH OF AN UNSUSPECTING LANNISTER! ANOTHER STIFF RIGHT KICK! A LEFT KICK! A RIGHT KICK! THE PIZZA BOY IS FIRING OFF WITH KICK AFTER KICK! HE WASN’T WINNING THE PUNCH EXCHANGE, SO HE CHANGES IT UP WITH HIS LEGS! He backs Lannister into the center of the ring! Lannister is taken down to one knee now! AND THE PIZZA BOY UNLOADS WITH SO MANY MORE KICKS TO THE CHEST OF LANNISTER! HE’S BRIGHTENING LANNISTER’S CHEST WITH EVERY KICK SWUNG! THEY’RE JUST RAPIDLY BEING FIRED OFF IN LANNISTER’S DIRECTION! HE CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT EITHER! AND THE PIZZA BOY STEPS OFF… LETTING OUT HIS BATTLE CRY MUCH LIKE HIS ALLY, BRIAN DANIELS! BUT WITH A TWIST?

The Pizza Boy: MAMA MIAAAAAAAAA!!!!…

Cherish: ROUNDHOUSE TO THE TEMPLE!!! CAUGHT BY LANNISTER! Lannister catches that swung foot of The Pizza Boy! He angrily steps back onto both feet with a fierce expression across his face! The Pizza Boy is hopping around on one leg—LEAPING ENZUIGIRI! THE PIZZA BOY GOT IT! HE NAILS LANNISTER IN THE HEAD WITH A PIERCING ENZUIGIRI! Lannister stumbles into the ropes, hung over the top one! The Pizza Boy comes rushing behind Lannister! RUNNING DOUBLE KNEE STRIKE TO THE SPINE!!! Lannister stumbles back into a seated position! The Pizza Boy kips up! He runs the ropes! RUNNING DROPKICK ACROSS THE CHEST OF LANNISTER! The Pizza Boys is picking up a whole lot of momentum here! The Pizza Boy drags Lannister up by his head, but keeps him on his knees! AND ALMOST IMMEDIATELY DRIVES HIM NOSE FIRST BACK INTO THE CANVAS WITH A KNEELING DDT! The Pizza Boy still not looking for a cover here! He knows it’s going to take a whole lot more to finish off Lannister! He stalks around Lannister, who’s crawling back to his feet…

Pierre: UH OH!!! LANNISTER BETTER HURRY UP! The Pizza Boy rushes into the corner and climbs up those ropes! He’s a little speed demon isn’t he?! The Pizza Boy is perched! AND LEAPS!!! FAZBEAR FLOP!!!! TOP ROPE BACK SENTON ONTO THE CRAWLING LANNISTER! HE PRACTICALLY CRAWLED RIGHT INTO IT! The Pizza Boy rolls Lannister over for the cover—but Lannister keeps rolling onto the apron! Yes! That’s how you do it! You avoid getting pinned! The Pizza Boy frustratingly glares at Lannister trying to pick himself up from the apron! The Pizza Boy crawls back onto his feet—SPRINTING FORWARD!!!! RUNNING DROPKICK TO THE KNEELING LANNISTER ON THE APRON! LANNISTER GOES FLYING OFF THE APRON INTO THE BARRICADE WITH SUCH FORCE! THE PIZZA BOY PUT EVERYTHING INTO THAT DROPKICK! LANNISTER MUST HAVE REALLY GOTTEN UNDER HIS SKIN! And oh—oh come on! The Pizza Boy is getting way too risky here! He’s climbing up the ropes! You don’t need to do this! You really don’t! Get down from there! He’s up! He’s waiting for Lannister Lannister is slowly making his way up onto his feet! THE PIZZA BOY IS PERCHED!!! LANNISTER SLOWLY STANDS!!! AND THE PIZZA BOY DIVES FOR HIS LIFE!!!

Cherish: FEUER FREIIIIIIII!!!!!!!! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TAKES THE PIZZA BOY RIGHT OUT OF MID-AIR! WHERE DID HE CHANNEL THAT ENERGY FROM?! HOW?! THE PIZZA BOY IS OUT! HE’S OUT!

(Lannister backs up into the barricade resting, staring down at lifeless Pizza Boy)

Pierre: Lannister could enter the ring right now and retain through count out—but he’s not! Lannister scoops The Pizza Boy up in his arms and slides him underneath the bottom rope! He wants to win this inside of the ring! His pride sometimes gets the better of him! Lannister reenters the ring as well, but wait! Huh? He’s not attempting the cover! What’s he—OH BOY! Lannister is towering over the Pizza Boy! Watching his every move! He wants perhaps another Feuer Frei?! The punishment these two have already gone through! It’s unreal! And it’s about to get even worse! Lannister is begging! Pleading! He wants The Pizza Boy back on his feet! The Pizza Boy is barely moving, but he’s stirring! Lannister is watching… waiting… The Pizza Boy is pushing himself up! He’s alive after all! Lannister is so eager! So hungry for this! The Pizza Boy… IS UP! LANNISTER CHARGES FORWARD!!!… AND…

Cherish: THE PIZZA BOY COLLAPSES TO HIS KNEES! Lannister looks in disgust! RUNNING KNEE SMASH ACROSS THE FACE OF THE PIZZA BOY! HE DIDN’T GET THE FEUER FREI, BUT SURELY HE GOT THE IMPACT OF THAT DEADLY KNEE! The Pizza Boy once again falls lifeless onto his spine! He stares at the ceiling as his Pain for Pride moment could be taken away from him at any given moment! Lannister quickly stays on top of him! Stomping at the mid-section, but quickly hurriedly drags The Pizza Boy up onto his feet! He shifts himself behind The Pizza Boy… BLOOD MONEY! THE BLOOD MONEY!!! THE FULL NELSON HAS BEEN APPLIED! LANNISTER HAD THE PIZZA BOY TRAPPED IN THE BLOOD MONEY! HE’S THROWING AND TOSSING THE PIZZA BOY! APPLYING SO MUCH PRESSURE! THE PIZZA BOY IS DOING WHATEVER HE CAN TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! HE’S TRYING EVERYTHING! BUT IT’S NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE! HE’S FADING! HE’S FADING, PIERRE! THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IS LITERALLY FADING RIGHT BEFORE HIM! THE REFEREE CONSTANTLY CHECKING ON HIM! LANNISTER IS SHOUTING AT HIM TO GIVE UP! BUT I DON’T EVEN KNOW IF THE PIZZA BOY CAN HEAR HIM! THE PIZZA BOY IS… IS HE OUT???… STUNNER!!! STUNNER!!! THE PIZZA BOY AT THE VERY LAST MILLISECOND PULLS LANNISTER DOWN INTO A STUNNER!

Pierre: WAS HE PLAYING POSSUM THAT ENTIRE TIME? WAS HE TRICKING LANNISTER INTO THINKING HE WAS OUT? I know The Pizza Boy has endured a lot of pain during his career, but I’m left in awe with such a strategic way of getting Lannister off him! The Pizza Boy appears to be so exhausted though! I imagine going this long in a match with Lannister does that to a person! LIKE I SAID, LANNISTER ALREADY ON THE PURSUIT OF THE PIZZA BOY! BUT THE PIZZA BOY SIDESTEPS WHATEVER LANNISTER WAS CHARGING IN BY! LANNISTER SPINS AROUND! SHOTEI RIGHT TO THE CHEST OF LANNISTER! MY GOODNESS! That brutal blow tosses Lannister back into the ropes! THE PIZZA BOY WITH A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE TO LANNISTER!!!… NO! LANNISTER DUCKS AND DUMPS THE PIZZA BOY OVER THE TOP ROPE! BUT THE PIZZA BOY LANDS ON THE APRON! Lannister turns around! BUT IS CLOCKED WITH A HARD RIGHT FOREARM! AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! Lannister is sent wobbling backward, I think he might have taken far too many blows to the head there! The Pizza Boy is sizing him up! AND HE SPRINGS OFF THAT TOP ROPE!!!

Cherish: SPRINGBOARD HURRICANRANA!!! WAIT, HOLD UP! HE’S CAUGHT! THE PIZZA BOY IS CAUGHT RIGHT ONTO LANNISTER’S SHOULDERS! HE’S HOLDING HIM UPRIGHT! AND HE RUNS TOWARD THE CORNER! A BUCKLE BOMB!!!!… HURRICANRANA!!! THE PIZZA BOY IS ABLE TO GET IT LAST SECOND ONCE AGAIN! HE SENDS LANNISTER FLYING INTO THE CORNER! The Pizza Boy rushes back to his feet! RUNNING DROPKICK TO LANNISTER! A HARD DROPKICK AT THAT! The Pizza Boy back up to his feet, BUT LANDS A RUNNING FOREARM ON THE CORNERED LANNISTER! For once, he has the lion cornered! He’s taking advantage of every second that he has! The Pizza Boy once again distances himself from his opposition, before soaring back in his direction! LANNISTER STEPS OUT OF THE CORNER! RED WEDDING!!!!!…. DISCUS LARIAT!!! IS DUCKED BY THE PIZZA BOY! THE PIZZA BOY RUNS UP THE CORNER AND DIVES BACK AT LANNISTER WITH A MOONSAULT!!!! The Pizza Boy quickly back up on his feet after that! He evades danger once again! Lannister really wants to put a stop to him before he gets going! Lannister is not far behind him! Lannister chases The Pizza Boy down! AND IS NAILED WITH A SPINNING KNEE STRIKE! Lannister bent over, grabbing his stomach! The Pizza Boy positions himself, facing away from Lannister, while wrapping an arm around his neck…

Pierre: THE PIZZA BOY PUSHES OFF THE MAT WITH BOTH FEET! THE LAST SLICE!!! STANDING ASAI DDT!!!… HUH?!?! LANNISTER KEEPS THE PIZZA BOY RISEN ON HIS SHOULDERS! THE PIZZA BOY DOESN’T FULLY MAKE IT THE ENTIRE WAY! LANNISTER SHOWCASING SUCH BEAUTIFUL STRENGTH HERE! AND LANNISTER RUNS FULL FORCE INTO THE CORNER WHILE HOLDING THE PIZZA BOY!!!… But The Pizza Boy is able to slide off his shoulders! Lannister hits the turnbuckles, but spins around! The Pizza Boy comes sprinting after! But Lannister sidesteps out of the corner! That sends The Pizza Boy into the corner! And Lannister grips a hold of The Pizza Boy’s wrist in attempt to whip him to the other corner! He’s successful! The Pizza Boy goes spine first into the opposite corner! LANNISTER COMES SPRINTING AFTER HIM LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN!!!!… RUNNING KNEE SMASH TO THE CORNERED PIZZA BOY!!!! The Pizza Boy has the wind taken out of him, walking forward, but Lannister keeps a strong hold on him! He positions himself nicely! KARELIN LIIIIFTTTTTT!!!! He tosses The Pizza Boy back like a rag doll with a well executed Karelin Lift!

Cherish: And Lannister is right there with The Pizza Boy! The Pizza Boy tries crawling to his feet! BUT LANNISTER IS DEADLIFTING HIM…. DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!!!! MY GOD! THE PIZZA BOY’S TORSO UPON IMPACT OF THE CANVAS MAKES THE RING SOUND LIKE THUNDER! AND LANNISTER ROLLS THROUGH! LANNISTER KEEPS THE PIZZA BOY HELD WITHIN HIS GRASP! AND LIFTS HIM UP! A SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX TO FOLLOW UP!!!! YET AGAIN! HE CONNECTS WITH A SECOND GERMAN! BUT THAT DOESN’T SEEM TO BE END!!! HE ROLLS THROUGH ONCE MORE! POSITIONING HIMSELF AGAIN!!!! GERMAN SUPLEXXXX!!! A THIRD GERMAN! AND HE’S NOT DONE?! WHAT?!!?! LANNISTER AGAIN ROLLS THROUGH!!! HE’S BACK UP WITH A DYING PIZZA BOY AT THIS POINT! AND TOSSES HIM OVER HEAD!!! OVERHEAD GERMAN SUPLEX INTO THE CORNER!!!! THE PIZZA BOY IS FOLDED IN HALF IN THE CORNER!!!! THE EAGLE HAS FLOWN OUT HIS NEST AND IS SOARING HIGH! The Pizza Boy is slouched neck first on the bottom rope, but Lannister is right behind him! Of course he is! He drags him up by the tights, pulling him over his shoulder! AND DROPS HIM VIOLENTLY DOWN ON HIS NECK FOR THE RAINS OF CASTAMERE!!! THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! LANNISTER IS DONE PLAYING AROUND! HE’S TAKEN FULL CONTROL OF THIS MATCH JUST LIKE THAT!

Pierre: Lannister lets out a roar to this booing crowd! He cracks his neck and circles around the grounded Pizza Boy… I don’t know if there’s much left in the tank for The Pizza Boy at this point! I’d be worried, but I’m rooting for Lannister! Lannister stops in front of The Pizza Boy, who’s using Lannister as a way means to climb up! He’s dragging himself up Lannister! He doesn’t want to give up! This match means everything to him! I don’t think anybody would want to give up in this situation! Lannister just shakes his head, pulling him up by his head! The Pizza Boy attempts to throw a few punches, but none end up connecting! And Lannister takes him effortlessly down with a fireman’s carry takeover! But once again, The Pizza Boy is fighting through all of the pain! He’s finding a way to slowly crawl back onto his feet! How is he pulling any of this off? How can he possibly want this match that bad? You’re going to sacrifice your life, Pizza Boy! Lannister isn’t your typical bedtime story monster!

Cherish: Pizza Boy doesn’t care! The Pizza Boy is up! His knees are trembling! He’s putting up his fists while Lannister looks on in disgust! The Pizza Boy moves forward toward Lannister, but Lannister shoves him back into the ropes! I don’t think this is the challenge that Lannister wanted! He wanted someone of his level! He never considered The Pizza Boy to be worthy of his title! The Pizza Boy bounces off those ropes at Lannister, but Lannister tosses him into the ropes again! The Pizza Boy at this point is just Lannister’s toy to play with! The Pizza Boy this time takes off in a sprint after Lannister! BUT LANNISTER CATCHES HIM WITH A SHARP ELBOW! The Pizza Boy stumbles backwards! BUT COMES BACK FOR MORE! ONCE AGAIN NAILED WITH AN ELBOW! HE’S TAKING SUCH A BEATING! THIS POOR MAN! The Pizza Boy falls to a knee, while Lannister stares down into his eyes… The Pizza Boy looks back up, pushing himself to his feet! He gets in Lannister’s face, not a care in the world! Lannister is stoic! He’s not moving an inch while The Pizza Boy is shouting in his face! What is he thinking?!

The Pizza Boy: (shouting) I… WILL… WIN….

Pierre: THE PIZZA BOY IS TOSSED INTO THE AIR BY LANNISTER!!! FEUER FREI!!!! FEUER FREI!!!! THE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT CONNECTS! IT CONNECTS! WHAT?!?! LANNISTER DROPS DOWN AND COVERS THE PIZZA BOY! IS THIS IT! THE DREAM IS SHATTERED!

I DON’T KNOW WHAT SORT OF STRENGTH OR ENERGY THE PIZZA BOY IS TAPPING INTO, BUT HE’S MANAGED TO KICK OUT OF NOT ONE, NOT TWO, BUT THREE FEUER FREIS!!! THAT’S RIDICULOUS!

(Lannister gets up in a rage, in the referee’s face…)

Cherish: LANNISTER IS LIVID! HE’S ABSOLUTELY LIVID! I DON’T THINK I’VE EVER SEEN LANNISTER SO FURIOUS IN HIS LIFE! HE THOUGHT THIS MATCH SHOULD HAVE ENDED! I THOUGHT IT WAS OVER!

(Lannister finishes arguing with the referee, turning back around….)

Pierre: SUPERKICK!!!! SUPERKICK!!!! THE PIZZA BOY OUT OF ABSOLUTE NOWHERE NAILS LANNISTER WITH ONE HELL OF A SUPERKICK!!! WHEN DID HE GET BACK UP?! I DON’T EVEN… BUT LANNISTER DOES NOT GO DOWN!

Lannister: (no mic) You’re… weak…

Cherish: SPINNING BACKFIST!!!! THE SPINNING BACKFIST!!! FROM THE LATE LIONCROSS WHO HAD HIS LAST MATCH YESTERDAY!!! HE’S USING EVERY MOVE OF HIS FRIEND’S ARSENAL!!!… AND LANNISTER IS DOWN TO A KNEE, BUT PUSHES HIMSELF BACK UP! RIGHT INTO THE PIZZA’S BOYS CLUTCHES! PIZZA BOY HOOKS HIM BY THE HEAD!

Referee: ONEEEEEEE!!!!….. TWOOOOOO!!!!!….

Pierre: LANNISTER KICKS OUT! LANNISTER KICKS OUT! HE’S NOT DOWN FOR THE COUNT YET! THE CHAMPION WILL NOT LOSE! THE CHAMPION WILL NOT GO DOWN TO A LOWLY PIZZA BOY! The Pizza Boy rolls back onto his feet, but he’s starting to look a lot more desperate now… There has to be a million things going on inside that head! He just pulled off some of the most classic moves his fallen comrades have mastered! And his own! He still didn’t put him away! The Pizza Boy rests against the ropes, panting, breathing heavily, before looking over to the inhumanly beast that is Lannister already making his way onto his feet! The Pizza Boy steps closer to Lannister, grabbing him by the arm—BUT LANNISTER SHOOTS UP WITH VERY EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! A STANDING FEUER FREI!!!!! The Pizza Boy flies back into the ropes, Lannister is up! Lannister once again somehow has energized himself in such a short time span!

Cherish: BUT THE PIZZA BOY USES THOSE ROPES TO BOUNCE BACK WITH ALL HIS MIGHT!!!! RED WEDDING!!!!!! THE RED WEDDING!!!!!!!!! DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!!!! LANNISTER TURNS THE PIZZA BOY OUT WITH THE RED WEDDING! AND LANNISTER SHUFFLES INTO THE COVER!!!..

Pierre: GET IT TOGETHER LANNISTER! COME ON! YOU CAN’T GO OUT LIKE THIS…

(The Pizza Boy looks down at Lannister, then turns his attention to the corner)

Cherish: UH… UH OH! The Pizza Boy is approaching the corner! He’s climbing those ropes! He wants to end all of this once for all!

Pierre: HE’S RISKING LOSING IT ALL! ONE WRONG MOVE! ONE WRONG STEP! LANNISTER TAKES THIS MATCH BY STORM!

(The Pizza Boy slowly climbs up the ropes, the New Jersey crowd going insane for him)

Cherish: The Pizza Boy has made it to the step! He’s taking a fine look around to all of the fans that are on their feet! Lannister is getting back onto his feet! Slowly but surely! The Pizza Boy is sizing him up! Lannister has his back turned against The Pizza Boy! BUT HE IS UP INDEED! THE PIZZA BOY LEAPS FORWARD!!!!… LANNISTER WITH THE FEUER FREI!!! NO!!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Cowboy Song” by Faith No More plays throughout the stadium, as the crowd bursts into ear deafening cheers, The Pizza Boy slowly gets to his knees, realizing that he’s just won the match)

Ring Announcer: HERE IS YOUR WINNNER… AND NEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW… ANSWERSSSSSS WORLDDDD CHAMPIOOOOOONNNNNNNN!!!!!…. THEEEE PIIIIIZZZZZAAAA BOOOOOYYYYYY!!!!

Cherish: HE’S DONE IT!!!! HE’S DONE IT!!!! THE PIZZA BOY HAS WON HIS ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BACK FROM LANNISTER AND HAS BECOME A TWO TIME ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION IN A MATTER OF HALF A YEAR ABOUT! THE IMPOSSIBLE BECAME POSSIBLE!!! EVERYONE IS GOING INSANE!!!!

(The referee walks up to The Pizza Boy still almost in disbelief, handing The Pizza Boy his newly won Answers World Championship, as he hesitates to take it, due to staring at it with tears filling his eyes… he accepts it, embracing it by holding it close to his chest, before getting onto his feet and raising it for the New Jersey crowd to bare witness)

Pierre: Fine… you deserve it, Pizza Boy. That’s all you’re getting out of me.

Cherish: FINE, MORE FOR ME TO GIVE TO HIM! HE’S DESERVED THIS MOMENT FOR A LONG TIME! AND I’M SO HAPPY HE’S FINALLY TAKEN IT FOR HIMSELF! LANNISTER GAVE HIM ONE OF THE GREATEST FIGHTS OF HIS LIFE AND HE OVERCAME THE ODDS! HE SLAYED THE BEAST! HE CONQUERED THAT MONSTER! AND HE HAS EVERY RIGHT TO CALL HIMSELF THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!!!

(The Pizza Boy slowly makes his way to the corner, still very exhausted and worn down from the match, he climbs to the second rope, raising the Answers World Championship high into the air, as the crowd explodes)

Cherish: TAKE IT IN, PIZZA BOY! YOU DESERVE IT!!!!

(… “You Want It Darker” by Leonard Cohen blares through the arena, as Nico Borg comes sprinting down the ramp with the Cash in the Vault briefcase at hand)

Cherish: WHAT?!?!?! WHAT?!?!?!! NO… NO!!!! YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!

(The Pizza Boy slowly turns his head backwards from celebrating on the second rope, toward Nico Borg rushing down the ramp)

Pierre: YES!!! YES!!!! GO NICO! GO NICO! CASH IT IN! BECOME WORLD CHAMPION! DO IT NICO! RELIVE HISTORY! TWO SUCCESSFUL CASH INS ON THE PIZZA BOY!!!

(The Pizza Boy descends from the rope, as Nico Borg enters the ring, staring across at The Pizza Boy who’s tightly grasping his Answers World Championship, as “You Want It Darker” fades…)

Cherish: NOT LIKE THIS….

(Nico Borg sadistically smirks at the vividly exhausted Pizza Boy, then Nico Borg walks over to the referee…)

Pierre: HEY!!! WHOA WHAT?!?! THE PIZZA BOY JUST CLOCKED NICO BORG OVER THE HEAD WITH THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! WHAT DOES HE THINK HE’S DOING!?!?!

(The Pizza Boy quickly slides out of the ring and walks backwards up the ramp in a hurry)

The Pizza Boy: (no mic) Not today, this is my moment.

Cherish: HAHA! THAT’S RIGHT! TAKE THAT! IT’S THE PIZZA BOY’S NIGHT! I COMMEND HIM FOR THIS!

Pierre: YOU COMMEND HIM FOR THIS?!?! AND SPITE LANNISTER FOR EVERYTHING HE DOES! HYPOCRISY AT IT’S FINEST!

(“Cowboy Song” picks back up, as Nico Borg slowly gets back up a knee, with grimace on his face, gripping the handle of his Cash in the Vault briefcase, he stares down The Pizza Boy walking back up the ramp…)

Cherish: AND THAT’S HOW YOU MAKE A STATEMENT! CONGRATULATIONS TO THE PIZZA BOY! YOU EARNED THIS VICTORY!

(… the two continues to stare one another down, as the camera fades elsewhere)

( 5 seconds of silence. )

( “The Moment” by Tame Impala hits, as the words ‘Pain for Pride’ show up in dancing colors; the black background turns into a psychedelic one, with trippy colors and images flashing. )

( We see on the screen: “The experience of a lifetime!” , “You’ll never be the same!” ,“It will change the culture as we know it!.” along with images of the past several EDC festivals and Pain for Pride events that have taken place worldwide. )

Tame Impala: “I want to be in the moment…Anticipation growing….. IT’S GETTING CLOSER!!!!”

( ON SCREEN WE SEE: “EAW and Electric Daisy Carnival proudly present its first ever mega collaboration: Pain for Pride Festival! )

( Pain for Pride Festival: June 27-July 1st! LIVE from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway! Partake in the greatest celebration the world has ever seen! )

(The lights throughout the stadium slowly cut out one by one until it’s completely shrouded in darkness, the only form of light shines down from the night sky above. The crowd quiet down to near silence as the familiar voice of a popular English vocalist begins to sing.)

“Oh, misty eye of the mountain below…”
“Keep careful watch of my brothers’ soul…”
“And should this sky be filled with fire and smoke…”
“Keep watching over Durin’s son…”

(His voice stops as a mixed reaction of cheers and boos echo throughout the darkness. Suddenly, the roar of a dragon blasts through the speakers as fire shoots from the back of the stadium over the head of Ed Sheeran who stands on the roof of the stadium with an acoustic guitar in hand to a explosion of cheers. The begins to play the guitar as embers from the pyro fall in front of him and burn out by the time the hit inside the stadium)

“If this is to end in fire, then we shall all burn together…”
“Watch the flames climb higher into the night…”
“Calling out for the rope, sent by and we will…”
“Watch the flames burn on and on the mountain side, hey…”

(The stadium EXPLODES as Xavier Williams slowly makes his way through the curtain and onto the stage in front of the 80,000 plus in the stadium. He closes his eyes and soak every piece of the atmosphere in before slowly making his way down to the ring. The commentators remain silent as Ed continues to sing.)

“And if we should die tonight…”
“Then we should all die together…”
“Raise a glass of wine for the last time…”
“Calling out for the rope…”
“Prepare as we will…”
“Watch the flames burn on and on the mountain side…”
“Desolation comes upon the sky…”

(Xavier stands at the bottom of the ramp as the hint of a smile crosses the face of Xavier as he turns his back towards the ring as Ed hits the chorus. Giant wooden pyres of both Xavier and Jamie stands on the stage…)

“Now I see fire…”

(Fire shoots up from the stage and back over the head of Ed as both pyres light immediately as the hint of a smile turns into a look of determination. Xavier cracks his neck before rolling under the bottom rope and into the ring.)

“Inside the mountain…”
“I see fire, burning the trees…”
“And I see fire, hollowing souls…”
“And I see fire, blood in the breeze…”
“And I hope that you’ll remember me…”

(Xavier stands in the middle of the ring and slowly turns as he looks out at the thousands upon thousands of people crowding the entire stadium.)

Stew: TWO YEARS! THIS MATCH AT PAIN OF PRIDE HAS BEEN BUILDING FOR TWO YEARS! TWO MEN THAT HAVE WAGED WAR OVER TWO SEPARATE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS; TWO MEN THAT HAVE HELD THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS TOGETHER! TWO MEN THAT WERE ONCE BEST FRIENDS, BUT NOW STAND AS BITTER ENEMIES! XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS SAID IN THE PAST THAT HE NEEDS TO WRESTLE THIS MATCH AS IF IT WERE HIS LAST; HE NEEDS TO FIND THE THINGS THAT ONCE MADE HIM THE SELF PROCLAIMED BEST IN THE WORLD IF HE WANTS TO WALK OUT OF THIS JAMPACKED STADIUM WITH THAT PRESTIGIOUS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP IN HIS POSSESSION! BUT, IT’S AGAINST A MAN THAT HE HAS NEVER BEATEN CLEAN; WILL HE BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THAT TONIGHT? WILL XAVIER WILLIAMS BE ABLE TO END JAMIE’S SECOND WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN AS QUICKLY AS HIS FIRST! I CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS THING TO START!

Mercer: You can feel it in the air, Stew; there are so many few times that the atmosphere has been this great. We felt it last year with Xavier Williams squaring off against Mr. DEDEDE and that spectacular Answers World Championship main event. There’s nothing short of electricity in the air for this contest; Xavier has placed a lot on the line to get this match – he put his career on the line against Tig Kelly at Burning Desire because that’s how much Xavier not only wanted, but needed to stand in the Dynasty Main Event of the biggest Pain of Pride of all time. Xavier has openly said that if he can’t win the World Heavyweight Championship tonight that he’s going to die trying. I think that tonight we’re going to see an Xavier Williams that we’ve never seen before. When we think this guy that hit his limit, he continues to blow people’s expectations out the water. He is arguably that greatest name to come out of his generation of talent. People once considered him the face of this company as a whole and tonight the man tries to regain every piece of it. I expect nothing short of fireworks tonight between these two men. I expect a war greater than our expectations could possibly reach. I expect something worthy enough to compete for that Championship at this biggest show in this company’s history.

(Xavier back into the corner and takes a seat as officials put out the pyres on the stage and Ed Sheeran finishes the song. The thousands in attendance chant Xavier’s name as…)

(The lights slowly dim around the stadium until it’s swept into darkness.)

(“Through The Fire and The Flames” by Dragonforce hits. The stadium lights back up in a sea of orange and cyan, flickering at the rapid pace of the song. A camera flies over the stage base revealing “The Mighty Don’t Kneel” splashed across the LED.)

“On a cold winter morning…In the time before the light…In flames of death’s eternal reign…We ride towards the fight…”

(The two large buildings over the back of the stage fade in to reveal various images of Jamie O’Hara and Xavier Williams; both in and away from the ring. As each image appears, it slides away and fills a window of the regular Pain For Pride X cityscape graphics.)

“When the darkness has fallen down…And the times are tough alright…The sound of evil laughter falls…Around the world tonight…”

(Slowly, the graphic along the ramp begins to burn. The fire simmers from the grates lining the ramp as the burning graphic creeps up the ramp. As it hits the top, the fire makes its way along the X shape edge of the stage before creeping towards the center of the stage, devouring the TMDK logo. The fire continues to creep up the stage, fire simmering along the edge of the various scaffolding structures and LEDS.)

“So now we fly ever free…We’re free before the thunderstorm…On towards the wilderness…Our quest carries on…”

(The windows of the the PFP graphics slowly start to burn as the fire creeps up the building. The final image of O’Hara and Williams as the EAW Unified Tag Team champions remains for a moment, burning slower than any of the previous graphics. A camera focuses on the emotionless gaze of Xavier Williams from the ring before cutting to another angle behind up with the stage completely set alight in the distance. Fire shoots from top of the structures as smoke begins to billow out from various places and into the night sky. “Through the Fire and the Flames” dies out sending the stadium into complete silence. Only the roaring of flames echo throughout)

(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin blasts throughout Metlife Stadium, disrupting the silence. A piece of the platform falls away for a moment as the fire and the burnt graphics remain lit across the stage.)

“Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face…And stars fill my dream…I’m a traveler of both time and space…To be where I have been…”

“To sit with elders of the gentle race…This world has seldom seen…They talk of days for which they sit and wait…All will be revealed…”

(The platform begins to rise back up with Jamie O’Hara standing in the center with the World Heavyweight Championship around his waist. Decked in complete white with gold trim, his eyes immediately become fixated on Xavier Williams. As the platform comes to a stop, O’Hara remains still, continuing to focus on the challenger in the ring.)

“Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace, like thoughts inside a dream…Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert stream…”

“My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon, I will return again…Sure as the dust that floats high in June, when movin’ through Kashmir…”

(Slowly, O’Hara begins to raise both arms and pyrotechnics begin to shoot off the rim of Metlife stadium, from the north end of the stadium, racing up both sides towards the south. A final burst flies over the crowd, bathing the stadium in a sea of orange. O’Hara lowers his arms with a smirk and begins to head to the ring)

Stew-O: HE IS THE REIGNING, DEFENDING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION. DEFEATING JACOB SENN AND HIS OPPONENT TONIGHT, XAVIER WILLIAMS, TO CAPTURE A TITLE THAT WAS SOME EIGHTEEN MONTHS IN THE MAKING. SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDED IT AGAINST A GALLANT TLA AT BURNING DESIRE AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS CAREER, STEPS ONTO THE GRANDEST STAGE AS A WORLD CHAMPION. HE HAS FOUGHT HARD TO GET HERE AND I HAVE SO LITTLE DOUBT IN MY MIND HE’S GOING TO FIGHT TOOTH AND NAIL TO WALK AWAY STILL THE CHAMPION. IN HIS MIND, THIS NIGHT CEMENTS HIS NAME, HIS PLACE AMONG THE MODERN DAY GREATS AND IT CAN ONLY BE OBTAINED THROUGH VICTORY! BUT HOW FITTING, TO FACE THE MAN THAT HAS BEEN TIED TO NEARLY EVERY MILESTONE OF THE LAST TWO YEARS, TWO THIRDS OF HIS ENTIRE CAREER, XAVIER WILLIAMS.

Jake Mercer: He’s wanted this match, this moment for months and he
can’t allow the emotion of the moment get the better of him. Champions have
fallen before when they needed to be at their absolute best. A stirring
entrance aimed to crawl under the skin of Xavier Williams like so many of his
words have done so for months but he can’t expect it to have done anything to
waiver the challenger. To say he deserves this would be an understatement but
he can’t allow it to be wasted; this is going to be one hell of a war between
two men that will simply refuse to allow the other to walk out of that ring victorious
here tonight!

(O’Hara slides into the ring and immediately confronts Xavier Williams in the center, ripping the World Heavyweight Championship from his waist and hoisting it up in the air. O’Hara hauls inaudible insults towards Williams before making his way to the corner. He hoists the World Heavyweight Championship up in the air again as the camera quickly zooms back out. O’Hara steps back down and settles in his designated corner, resting the World Heavyweight Championship over the turnbuckle before removing his entrance attire. “Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin dies down…)

 

(The camera cuts to the Ring Announcer standing in the middle of the ring as Xavier remains seated in the corner and Jamie stands eager and confident.)

Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, this contest is scheduled for one fall… AND IT IS FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!

(The crowd erupt as Jamie takes the World Heavyweight Championship from around his waist and it hangs from his hand.)

Ring Announcer: Introducing first, THE CHALLENGER, from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY NINE POUNDS!! HE IS “SHI NO TENSHI”… XAAAAAAAVVVVIIIEEEERRRR WIIIIIIIILLLLLIIIIIIAAAAMMMSSSSSS!!

(The hint of a smile crosses the face of Xavier as there’s a thunderous mixed reaction for his introduction. He reaches up to the top rope and pulls himself up to his feet as the camera cuts to O’Hara.)

Ring Announcer: And now Introducing THE CHAMPION, from Melbourne, Australia, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY ONE POUNDS!! HE IS “THE SAINT OF VALIANCE”… “ISSEKI NI ICHIDO”… HE IS THE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!! JAAAAAAMMMMMMIIIEEEEEEEEE OOOOOOOOO’HAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRAAAAAAA!!!

(The crowd ERUPTS as Jamie O’Hara raises the World Heavyweight Championship as he makes his way to the middle of the ring. Xavier meets him there as the two nose to nose and begin to speak, but the words can’t be heard. The referee gets between the two as they make their way into their respective corners as the referee takes the World Heavyweight Championship and takes it over to Xavier, who doesn’t bother looking at it, instead keeping his eyes locked on Jamie. The referee walks back to the middle of the ring and raises the championship high into the air…)

Stew: And that’s what it’s all about.

(The referee hands the championship to the one of the production personnel before calling for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: PEOPLE ALL ACROSS THE WORLD, THAT SOUND IS THE SIGNAL FOR THE BIGGEST WAR IN RECENT MEMORY TO BEGIN HERE TONIGHT! TWO BROTHERS TURNED RIVALS WILL FIGHT RIGHT HERE FOR THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! Xavier Williams stands in his corner with a fierce gaze in his eyes, filled to the brim with focus and determination, to let this match be the one to allow the world to recognize the man that he used to be in this business! This match on this stage of this magnitude is the one for Xavier to prove he’s still the man that was a two-time EAW Champion, a man that was Elitist of the Year, and a former EAW Hall of Fame Champion! Jamie O’Hara stands in the opposite corner with a look of brazen confidence over him, seeing the chance to finally drive the final nail into the coffin on the man that was once his tag team partner, a former friend that now stands in the path of his legacy to be one of the best World Heavyweight Champions since its creation. Both of these men are going to leave EVERYTHING IN THAT RING AND I CAN’T WAIT TO BE ABLE TO ENJOY THIS MATCH ALONGSIDE MY COMMENTARY PARTNER, JAKE MERCER! WE’VE BEEN WAITING ALMOST ALL YEAR TO SEE THIS MATCH GO DOWN AND TONIGHT, IT FINALLY HAPPENS! Both men finally exit from their corners, walking forward towards one another with purpose, meeting with their foreheads smashed against each other and eyes locked onto each other! Eye-to-eye, nose-to-nose, you can just feel the intensity radiating from the ring with these two men just going at it with the verbal dispute between the two, before Xavier Williams takes a step back? What’s he doing? He’s… extending his hand for the handshake?

Jake Mercer: I’m as shocked as you are, Stew! After all the bad blood that has shared between these two, the opportunities that were stripped away because of their blind hatred for one another, Xavier Williams has now offered his hand to Jamie O’Hara as a motion of respect? I don’t even think our World Heavyweight Champion saw this coming as he raises an eyebrow in reaction to it, but surely he isn’t going to actually shake his hand after what has happened these past nine months between these two. Xavier starts to sneer towards Jamie as he lowers his hand a– XAVIER WILLIAMS FIRES WITH A HUGE DISGUSTING GLOB OF SPIT IS FIRED FROM HIS MOUTH INTO THE FACE OF JAMIE O’HARA! THE BLATANT DISRESPECT SHOWN FROM THE CHALLENGER TOWARDS THE CHAMPION WITH A SCOWL FORMING ON THE FACE OF JAMIE! Jamie removes the spit from this face as he shakes his head up and down to signify that he now sees how this match will be between the two of them STRIKING WITH A HUGE JUMPING KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW OF XAVIER! XAVIER IS STUNNED AND STARTS TO SHAKE IT OFF AS JAMIE COMES IN WITH THE ELBOW STRIKE TO THE FACE ON HIM!

Stew-O: XAVIER WILLIAMS SHAKES HIS HEAD A BIT AND STARTS TO LAUGH A BIT BEFORE HE RESPONDS WITH AN ELBOW OF HIS OWN INTO JAMIE O’HARA! JAMIE STUMBLES A BIT, BUT TELLS HIM TO SEND HIM ANOTHER ONE WHEN HE LANDS ANOTHER ELBOW STRIKE INTO HIS JAW! XAVIER TEETERS BACK A BIT, BUT THEN STRIKES WITH A HEADBUTT INTO THE FOREHEAD OF JAMIE! YOU CAN TELL THAT AFFECTED JAMIE A BIT, BUT HE SHAKES IT OFF AND STRIKES WITH A HEADBUTT OF HIS OWN! A SICKENING THUD LIKE BEATING ON A HOLLOW LOG AS XAVIER ALMOST LOSES HIS FOOTING FROM IT! XAVIER SHRUGS IT OFF TO RETURN WITH ANOTHER HEADBUTT! JAMIE DOES THE SAME SHRUG HIMSELF AND STRIKES WITH AN ELBOW AND THEN A HEADBUTT TO HIS SKULL! Xavier stumbles around the center of the from the combination of the two when Jamie rushes back into the ropes to rebound back INTO THE END OF THE WORLD! XAVIER RESURRECTS FROM THE HEADBUTT AND ELBOW STRIKE TO THROW JAMIE IN THE AIR FOR THE POP-UP POWERBOMB!

Jake Mercer: NO! JAMIE O’HARA LEAPFROGS BEHIND XAVIER WILLIAMS TO AVOID THE PLUMMET OF THE END OF THE WORLD! Jamie is able to quickly turn around STRIKING WITH A SHOOT KICK INTO THE BACK OF HIS KNEECAP IN THE LEG THAT HE TARGETED TO REMOVE XAVIER FROM ACTION FOR FOUR ENTIRE MONTHS! Xavier drops down to a knee as we see Jamie rush to the ropes RETURNING TO MEET HIM ON THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! XAVIER JUST COLLAPSES ONTO THE CANVAS WITH JAMIE JUST SEETHING IN ANGER AS HE WALKS OVER TO THE TURNBUCKLE! THE SPIT TO THE FACE THAT HE WAS MET WITH FROM HIS FORMER TAG TEAM PARTNER HAS BROUGHT OUT THIS VICIOUS NATURE FROM THE CHAMPION AS HE STARTS TO DISPLAY A SMILE ACROSS HIS FACE TO SEE HIM IN THIS STATE! Xavier starts to push his way up to his feet BUT JAMIE RUSHES INTO IN EXCELSIS! THE RUNNING KNEE STRIKE RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF XAVIER! HOLD ON! XAVIER CATCHES THE LEG OF JAMIE AS HE STANDS UP TO HIS FEET, LOOKING TO HIM WITH A BIT OF CONFUSION WHILE SHAKING OFF THE BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE, EVENTUALLY GIVING HIM A BIT OF A SMILE ON HIS FACE! XAVIER PULLS HIM IN BY HIS LEG AND HOOKS IT OVER HIS SHOULDER, TURNING HIS ATTENTION AROUND TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE, THROWING HIM BACK INTO IT WITH A LEG-TRAP BELLY-TO-BACK SUPLEX RIGHT INTO IT!

Stew-O: JAMIE O’HARA COLLAPSES DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS FROM THAT VICIOUS SUPLEX FROM XAVIER WILLIAMS AS HE WALKS OVER TO THE TURNBUCKLE ACROSS FROM HIM! He starts to hear the fans and their chanting of Jamie O’Hara’s name and KILL XAV KILL as he starts to take a moment to correct the near 80,000 in attendance about this chant! He motions for them to stop chanting Jamie’s name and claps for them when they chant KILL XAV KILL before he turns around SPRINTING TOWARDS THE FALLEN CHAMPION TO NAIL THE CANNONBALL SENTON INTO THE CORNER! RUNNING LEG LARIAT! JAMIE DARTS FORWARD AND LANDS A LEG LARIAT INTO THROAT OF XAVIER AS HE DROPS HIM STRAIGHT DOWN INTO THE CANVAS! Both men are down on the ring and already are starting to feel the effects of this match as Xavier starts to pick himself up with Jamie not too far behind, but still cradling his lower spine due to the leg-trap suplex into the turnbuckle! Xavier pulls Jamie up by his chin STRIKING WITH A STIFF ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW BEFORE PULLING HIM UP AGAIN FOR THE CHOP TO THE CHEST! THE COMBINATION GIVES XAVIER ENOUGH TIME TO GRAB JAMIE BY THE ARM AND LAUNCH HIM INTO THE ROPES! WAIT! JAMIE SPINS OUT AND IS ABLE TO COUNTER BY SENDING XAVIER INTO THE ROPES! JAMIE SPRINTS BACK INTO THE ROPES WHILE XAVIER CATCHES HIMSELF ON THE TOP ROPE AS JAMIE LOOKS FOR A LARIAT TO THROW HIM OUT TO THE OUTSIDE! XAVIER GRABS JAMIE UNDER HIS LEGS TO LIFT HIM UP AND OVER THE TOP ROPE DOWN ONTO THE FLOOR! JAMIE LANDS ON THE FLOOR HARD ON HIS SPINE AS HE ROLLS AROUND IN PAIN!

Jake Mercer: Xavier Williams looks down to see the situation he has left Jamie O’Hara in, the cogs inside of the his brain visibly turning, as we see Xavier sprint into the ropes LOOKING TO COME BACK WITH THE SUICIDE DIVE INTO JAMIE WITH HIS FOREARM LOOKING TO BE DRIVEN IN HIS FACE! JAMIE SLIDES INTO THE RING WHILE XAVIER FLIES OUT AND SLAMS INTO THE BARRICADE ON THE OUTSIDE! A DEVASTATING MISCALCULATION ON THE PART OF XAVIER WILLIAMS AS THAT COULD VERY WELL COST HIM THE MATCH RIGHT HERE! Jamie makes a dash to the ropes to gain a bit of momentum under him as he bounces off the ropes, Xavier picking himself up off of the arena floor, WITH JAMIE FLYING THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE WITH HIS OWN SUICIDE DIVE! JAMIE NAILS IT ALL ONTO XAVIER AS HE IS FORCED RIGHT BACK INTO THE BARRICADE! Jamie lands on his feet and starts to get the crowd on fire with his taunts toward his opponent GRABBING HIM BY THE HEAD AND DASHING TOWARDS THE BARRICADE TO THROW HIM RIGHT INTO IT! XAVIER BOUNCES OFF THE BARRICADE, THE SHEER IMPACT ALMOST BREAKING THE BARRICADE IN FRONT OF THE FANS, AS HE STARTS TO RISE BACK TO HIS FEET! JAMIE NAILS HIM WITH A KNEE STRIKE TO HIS SPINE TO KEEP HIM DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE! The referee starts to call for Jamie O’Hara to get back into the ring, Jamie going ahead to roll into the ring, but rolling back outside so that he can return back to his rival! The referee starts to scream again for him to enter, making him begin his count against the champion, making it possible for a potential double count-out!

Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!

Stew-O: Jamie O’Hara walks over to the fallen challenger as he brings him up to his feet, BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS SHOVES JAMIE RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE POST, HITTING IT WITH HIS SPINE! Jamie arches in pain from the shot when Xavier grabs him by his neck SLAMMING HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE WITH AUTHORITY!

Referee: FOUR!… FIVE!… SIX!

Jake Mercer: XAVIER HAS TAKEN BACK CONTROL OF THIS MATCH WHEN HE GRABS THE BROKEN CHAMPION FROM THE FLOOR, SPRINTING WITH HIM IN HIS POSSESSION, SENDING HIM CRASHING INTO THE STEEL STEPS! THE STEPS EXPLODE FROM THE IMPACT OF JAMIE’S FLESH BEING RUN THROUGH THE STEEL!

Referee: EI–

Stew-O: Jamie curls up in pain from the destruction he has been put through, when Xavier grabs Jamie out of the carnage of the steel steps, rolling him back into the ring while sliding back into the ring himself! Jamie O’Hara starts to crawl around the ring to try and pick himself back to his feet, but Xavier already stands up and is in the prime position to do something devastating, walking over to him GRABBING THE LEG OF JAMIE AS HE LOCKS HIM INTO THE STF! HE PULLS ON THE FACE OF JAMIE AS HE HAS HIM LOCKED IN, HOPING TO FORCE HIM TAP OUT AS THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP HANGS IN THE BALANCE! COULD JAMIE TAP OUT TO THIS SUBMISSION AND ALLOW XAVIER TO WALK OUT OF THE BIGGEST PAIN FOR PRIDE IN HISTORY WITH THE CHAMPIONSHIP? THIS IS A SAFE BET FOR XAVIER TO DO HERE BECAUSE HE CAN BE ABLE TO SUBMIT HIM RIGHT HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, START TO PUT SOME OF THE ENERGY INTO THE RESERVES, AND USE THIS CHANCE TO POTENTIALLY END IT ALL! Xavier continues to apply the pressure onto the submission, but Jamie is starting to use his upper body strength to drag his body towards the bottom rope, hoping to clutch onto it to force a break in the match! Jamie is struggling, but is making headway towards the bottom rope! XAVIER PULLS BACK BY HIS FACE TO TRY AND KEEP HIM AWAY FROM THE BOTTOM ROPE… BUT JAMIE IS ABLE TO REACH IT! HE LATCHES ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE AND THE REFEREE WALKS OVER TOWARDS THEM TO BREAK THE SUBMISSION HOLD! XAVIER’S NOT RELEASING IT! HE’S KEEPING IT SYNCHED IN AND THE REFEREE HAS TO START THE COUNT? IS XAVIER GOING TO COST HIMSELF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BECAUSE HE WON’T KEEP HIS COOL AGAINST THE CHAMPION! NO! RIGHT BEFORE THE FIVE-COUNT IS MADE, XAVIER RELEASES THE HOLD AS THE REFEREE STARTS BARKING AT HIM TO FOLLOW HIS DIRECTION OR HE WILL DISQUALIFY HIM! I KNOW THAT XAVIER CERTAINLY DOESN’T WANT THIS MATCH TO END WITH A DISQUALIFICATION!

Jake Mercer: Xavier Williams stands up and holds his hands in the air to let the referee know that he has laid off of the champion as Jamie O’Hara starts to roll out onto the ring apron to get some room from his opponent, but Xavier goes through the referee PULLING XAVIER FROM OVER THE TOP ROPE TO BRING HIM BACK INTO TH– ARMBAR! JAMIE PULLS HIS ARM DOWN ONTO THE ROPE WITH THE ROPE-HUNG ARMBAR AS THE TOP ROPE IS PRESSED INSIDE OF THE SHOULDER OF XAVIER! XAVIER REACHES OUT AND TRIES TO ESCAPE, BUT JAMIE KEEP THE HOLD PRESSED ON THERE AS THE REFEREE SCRAMBLES IN AN ATTEMPT TO TRY AND FORCE THE RELEASE FROM JAMIE! JAMIE STILL HAS THE ARMBAR LOCKED IN AS THE REFEREE BEGINS HIS COUNT! IS JAMIE GOING TO BE THE ONE TO END UP DISQUALIFIED INSTEAD OF XAVIER? NO! JAMIE RELEASES RIGHT AT THE REFEREE’S FIVE-COUNT AS HE DROPS ONTO THE APRON WHILE XAVIER BACKPEDALS TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING! Xavier shakes the pain off of his arm as you can see the anger rise into his face as he turns around to face Jamie WHO DROPS HIM WITH THE SLINGBLADE! JAMIE DROPS XAVIER DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS AS HE DARTS HIS ATTENTION BACK TO HIS OPPONENT TRYING TO STAND, STOMPING HIM RIGHT IN THE HEAD TO KEEP HIM DOWN, RIGHT BEFORE HE PULLS HIM UP AND HOOKS HIS ARM AROUND HIS NECK! JAMIE’S LOOKING TO LIFT HIM UP FOR THE SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER! WAIT! XAVIER HOOKS JAMIE ONTO HIS SHOULDERS IN THE FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION, BUT JAMIE STARTS TO STRIKE WITH THE KNEES RIGHT INTO HIS JAW! JAMIE LEAPS DOWN ONTO THE FLOOR AND HOOKS HIM IN FROM THE ARMS FOR THE DRAGON SUPLEX! NO! XAVIER NAILS HIM WITH A BACK ELBOW INTO A DISCUS LARIAT! JAMIE DUCKS UNDER AND SPRINTS TOWARDS THE ROPES TO REBOUND BACK WITH A BICYCL– XAVIER CATCHES HIM ON THE REBOUND AND SPINS HIM AROUND FOR THE GO HOME DRIVER! THE SCOOP LIFT SPUN OUT INTO AN OVER THE SHOULDER BACK-TO-BELLY PILEDRIVER DROPS JAMIE RIGHT ON HIS NECK AND SHOULDERS! XAVIER ROLLS OVER ONTO JAMIE AND HOOKS HIS LEG IN AN ATTEMPT TO PUT HIM AWAY FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!

Stew-O: JAMIE O’HARA WITH THE SHOULDER THROWN UP IN THE AIR TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN AND KEEP THE CHAMPIONSHIP IN HIS POSSESSION! Xavier smiles and shakes his head up and down, having an idea that Jamie would probably be able to kick out of the pin, as he stands up and grabs the champion by his head to bring him up to his feet. Xavier has Jamie standing up BUT JAMIE STRIKES WITH A STIFF ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW TO RATTLE XAVIER WITH! Xavier stumbles back BUT RESPONDS WITH ONE OF HIS OWN TO GET JAMIE ALL FIRED UP! XAVIER AND JAMIE GET RIGHT INTO ONE ANOTHER’S FACE AND START SCREAMING VULGAR OBSCENITIES TO EACH OTHER! HERE IT GOES! BOTH MEN GOING TO TOWN ON ONE ANOTHER WITH ELBOW STRIKES AS THIS HAS BEEN A BATTLE OF ENDURANCE BETWEEN THESE TWO MEN! BOMBS ARE JUST BEING THROWN BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM WHEN FINALLY WE SEE XAVIER START TO GET A BIT OF A LEAD ON THE CHAMPION! A COUPLE OF CONCURRENT SHOTS TO THE JAW OF JAMIE FROM XAVIER BEFORE HE GOES TO HOOK HI– NOPE! ROLLING GAMENGIRI!

Jake Mercer: XAVIER IS RUBBER-LEGGED FROM THE STIFF KICK TO THE HEAD FROM JAMIE AS HE COLLAPSES BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLE WHEN JAMIE ROLLS TO HIS FEET AND SPRINTS WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT FOR THE CORNER DROPKICK! NO WAY! XAVIER THROWS JAMIE UP ON HIS SHOULDERS AND POINTS HIM TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE IN FRONT OF HIM! WHAT IS HE THINKING? XAVIER SPRINTS TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE WITH JAMIE ON HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB! JAMIE IS DRIVEN STRAIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE WITH THE POWERBOMB AND ALMOST COLLAPSES DOWN TO THE FLOOR, BUT XAVIER HAS SOMETHING BETTER IN MIND AS HE PULLS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AT THE CORNER OF THE RING! WHAT IS HE DOING, STEW?

Stew-O: HE CARRIES HIM BY HIS SHOULDERS TO THE CENTER OF THE RING WHEN XAVIER WILLIAMS ROLLS FORWARD FOR THE FIREMAN’S CARRY ROLLING SENTON! JAMIE O’HARA IS DROPPED TO THE CANVAS WITH AS XAVIER ROLLS BACK TO HIS FEET AND LEAPS ONTO THE ROPES OF THE TURNBUCKLE! DOUBLE JUMP MOONSAULT! THE MASTODON OF A MAN FLIES LIKE ONE OF THE HIGH-FLYERS OF THE BUSINESS HERE AS HE FLIPS BACK AND DROPS HIS MASSIVE FRAME ONTO THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION AS HE HOOKS HIM BY HIS LEGS TO GO FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT ONCE MORE!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!

Jake Mercer: JAMIE O’HARA WITH ANOTHER KICK OUT TO KEEP THIS FIGHT GOING BETWEEN BOTH HIM AND XAVIER WILLIAMS! These two men have just been going at it, fighting with one another for this chance to be the EAW World Heavyweight Champion, and neither man is going to relent from the chance to beat the rival that has been a thorn at their side for almost a year and become the world champion! Xavier Williams rises off of his opponent as Jamie O’Hara starts to crawl his way over towards the turnbuckle, with Xavier wondering what he will have to do next to put down the champion, as we see Jamie start to use the ropes to get back to a standing position! Xavier turns his head over to notice this RUSHING IN AS HE BURIES HIS FOREARM INTO HIS NECK WITH A RUNNING CORNER LARIAT! JAMIE ALMOST WAS FLIPPED OVER THE TURNBUCKLE WITH THE IMPACT OF THAT LARIAT! Xavier shoves Jamie, teetering and stumbling from exhaustion towards the next turnbuckle corner, as Xavier goes towards the center of the ring SPRINTING TOWARDS JAMIE WITH A SECOND RUNNING CORNER LARIAT! SERIOUSLY, STEW, THESE LARIATS ARE JUST WICKED AS JAMIE JUST COLLAPSES DOWN TO THE FLOOR FROM THE IMPACT THEY’VE CONNECTED TO HIM WITH! Jamie starts to crawl his way back over towards the corner as Xavier stands in the middle of the ring, stalking and waiting for him to reach his vertical base again, as Jamie finally does with assistance of the ropes WITH XAVIER SPRINTING IN FOR A THIRD RUNNING CORNER LA– BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE!

Stew-O: JAMIE O’HARA JUST EXPLODES OUT OF THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER WITH A DEVASTATING BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW OF XAVIER WILLIAMS CAUSING HIM TO COLLAPSE DOWN TO HIS HANDS AND KNEES! JAMIE CAN FEEL THE ENERGY OF THE METLIFE STADIUM FULLY BEHIND HIM AS HE GOES OVER TO THE ROPES, SHOWING THE SIGNALS TO THE CROWD TO GET BEHIND HIM, AS HE LINES XAVIER UP! IN EXCELSIS! THE RUNNING KNEE STR– NO! XAVIER ROLLS HIS WAY OUT OF HARM’S WAY TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, THE FANS SHOWING THEIR DISPLEASURE WITH THEIR CRIES OF HATRED, AS HE WALKS OUTSIDE TO TAKE A MOMENT TO BREATHE! Jamie looks a bit disappointed by the fact that he wasn’t able to land the In Excelsis, but he turns his attention over towards the turnbuckle, exiting through the middle rope AND MAKING HIS CLIMB TO THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE! WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE MIND OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION? JAMIE O’HARA IS ON THE TOP ROPE AS HE LOOKS TO MAKE A DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE TO HIS CHALLENGER!

Jake Mercer: XAVIER WILLIAMS RUSHES ONTO THE RING APRON AS HE GRABS JAMIE O’HARA FROM THE TOP ROPE TO BRING HIM DOWN ONTO HIS SHOULDERS BEFORE HE WAS ABLE TO DIVE OFF! Xavier has him there and still on the apron LOOKING FOR WHAT COULD BE A FIREMAN’S CARRY SLAM RIGHT ONTO THE RING APRON! NO! KNEE STRIKE! KNEE STRIKE! KNEE STRIKE! JAMIE IS ABLE TO DROP DOWN WITH THE HELP OF THE KNEE STRIKES AS HE HOOKS HIM UNDER HIS ARM AND BY ONE OF XAVIER’S ARMS! SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER! GOOD GRIEF! HE JUST LIFTS XAVIER UP IN THE AIR TO SPIKE HIM DOWN ON THE RING APRON WITH HIS HEAD FOR THE SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER! JAMIE O’HARA WAS ABLE TO FIND A WAY TO GET BACK INTO THIS MATCH, BUT WITH BOTH MEN DOWN ON THE OUTSIDE FROM THIS STUNNING MOVE, THE REFEREE IS FORCED TO MAKE THE COUNT!

Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!…

Stew-O: JAMIE O’HARA STARTS TO CRAWL HIS WAY OVER TO THE RING APRON WHILE XAVIER WILLIAMS IS STILL LYING ON THE FLOOR ON THE OUTSIDE! HE HASN’T MOVED A MUSCLE SINCE JAMIE LANDED THAT SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER ONTO THE RING APRON!

Referee: FOUR!… FIVE!… SIX!…

Jake Mercer: JAMIE O’HARA IS ABLE TO MAKE IT TO HIS FEET AND ROLLS RIGHT BACK INTO THE RING WHILE HE LETS THE REFEREE MAKE THE COUNT! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS STARTING TO STIR AS HE REACHES A HAND UP TO THE RING APRON!

Referee: SEVEN!… EIGHT!… NI–

Stew-O: XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS MADE IT BACK INTO THE RING AND BARELY BEATS THE COUNT BACK INTO THE RING! LOOK AT THE RING, JAKE, AS BOTH MEN ARE DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF IT AS IT TOOK EVERYTHING THEY HAD TO GET RIGHT BACK INTO THE RING! Both men have fought so hard for this chance to be known as the World Heavyweight Champion and now you can see them both start to rise up to their feet to keep this dogfight between the both of them moving forward! Jamie O’Hara is the first to stand on his feet as he grabs Xavier Williams by the head HOOKING HIM UNDER HIS ARM AS HE BENDS DOWN TO GO FOR HIS LEG! HE’S LOOKING TO HIT THE DEATH, DECAY, AND WINDY DAYS! JAMIE LIFTS HIM U– NO! XAVIER GRABS THE ARM THAT IS WRAPPED AROUND HIS OWN THROAT AND PRIES HIMSELF OUT, RUNNING BEHIND JAMIE AS HE STILL HAS POSSESSION OF HIS ARM, TWISTING HIM AROUND AND PULLING HIM IN FOR THE URANAGE! XAVIER DROPS JAMIE RIGHT DOWN ON HIS SPINE AS WE SEE HIM STAND BACK UP AND RUSH TOWARDS THE ROPES TO RETURN TO JAMIE WITH A RUNNING SENTON! ALL OF THE BODY WEIGHT OF XAVIER JUST DROPPED ONTO JAMIE, GASPING FOR AIR AS ALL OF IT ESCAPES HIS LUNGS, BUT WE SEE XAVIER ISN’T DONE YET AS HE LOOKS OVER TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE HIMSELF!

Jake Mercer: He stands up to his feet and walks over towards the ropes, exiting them as he makes his way over towards the turnbuckle, climbing his way up to the top of the turnbuckle as he looks down to his opponent. He holds onto the top ropes LOOKING TO BE GOING FOR A FROG SPLASH FROM THE TOP ROPE! CAN HE HI– I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! CALL IT A SECOND WIND, HITTING HIS RESERVES, WHATEVER YOU WANT, BUT JAMIE O’HARA JUST JUMPED UP LIKE GOD HAD AWOKEN HIM AS HE SPRINTS TO THE TURNBUCKLE AND JUMPS UP THERE WITH HIM! JAMIE IS ON THE MIDDLE ROPE AS WE SEE HIM LAYING INTO XAVIER WITH THE ELBOW STRIKES ON THE TOP ROPE BEFORE HOOKING HIM BY THE NECK! HAVE MERCY! JAMIE DROPS XAVIER ON HIS HEAD WITH THE SMALL PACKAGE DRIVER FROM THE TOP ROPE, BUT HE STILL HAS HIM BY HIS NECK AS HE ROLLS THEM BOTH ONTO HIS FEET! HE LIFTS XAVIER UP IN THE AIR AS HE DROPS HIM ONCE MORE WITH ANOTHER SINGLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER STRAIGHT DOWN INTO THE CANVAS! TWO BRAINBUSTERS FROM THE PRICE OF ONE, STEW! JAMIE COULD HAVE THIS MATCH OVER AND DONE WITH HERE TONIGHT! JAMIE ROLLS XAVIER ON HIS SHOULDERS AND HOOKS HIS LEG IN FOR THE PIN!

Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…

Stew-O: YOU’VE GOT TO BE JOKING? XAVIER WILLIAMS WAS ABLE TO LIFT HIS SHOULDER OFF OF THE CANVAS TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN! Jamie O’Hara starts to shake his head as he was hoping, no PRAYING, that Xavier Williams would stay down from that. However, it was to no avail as we saw that he would be able to survive in this match! Jamie stands back to his feet as we see Xavier start to roll onto his hands and knees to do the same WITH JAMIE DRIVING A KNEE STRAIGHT INTO THE SHOULDER OF XAVIER! ANOTHER KNEE! JAMIE JUST GOING TO TOWN ON THESE KNEE STRIKES, LETTING OUT ALL THE FRUSTRATION THAT HE HAS HAD FROM THE BITTER RIVALRY BETWEEN THESE TWO, OUT INTO THESE KNEES! FORCING HIM TO VACATE THE EAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS, COSTING HIM THE KING OF ELITE CROWN, HAVING TO GO THROUGH HIM ALONG WITH JACOB SENN TO BE THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION, ALL OF THIS BEING LET OUT RIGHT NOW AGAINST XAVIER! Jamie finally removes himself from Xavier and steps back, crouching down to line Xavier up, hoping to be able to hit this AS HE GOES FOR HIS THIRD ATTEMPT ON THE IN EXCELSIS! Xavier starts to get up to his feet WHEN JAMIE SPRINTS IN FOR THE ONE THAT COULD FINISH HIM OFF! IN EXCELSIS!

Jake Mercer: DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER! XAVIER WILLIAMS BURIES HIS KNEES RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF JAMIE O’HARA WHEN WE SEE THE CHAMPION START TO BECOME DAZED FROM THE SHOT! Xavier shoots up to his feet and grabs Jamie by the neck, screaming right into his face about how this is his moment, going to the point WHERE HE EVEN SLAPS HIM IN THE FACE TO TRY AND GET THE MESSAGE TO HIM WHEN HE TOSSES HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE ROPES WITH VENGEANCE IN MIND! JAMIE BOUNCES ON THE ROPES, BUT HE’S ABLE TO CATCH HIMSELF ON THE ROPE, CAUSING XAVIER TO MARCH TOWARDS HIM TO GRAB HIM OUT OF THE ROPES! KNEE LIFT! A KNEE STRIKE RIGHT INTO THE MOUTH OF XAVIER AS HE STUMBLES BACK, GIVING JAMIE AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO SOMETHING HE DIDN’T THINK HE WOULD BE ABLE TO DO, AS HE GOES BEHIND XAVIER TO GET HIM IN THE WRISTLOCK! COULD IT BE? ROMAN SKY! JAMIE SHOVES HIM FORWARD AND SPINS HIM AROU– END OF THE WORLD! XAVIER WAS ABLE TO HAVE THE WHEREWITHAL TO THROW JAMIE UP IN THE AIR AND DROP HIM DOWN WITH AUTHORITY FOR THE POP-UP POWERBOMB! XAVIER WILLIAMS COLLAPSES ONTO JAMIE O’HARA AND COVERS HIM FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!

Referee: ONNNEEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!

Stew-O: WAIT, LOOK AT JAMIE O’HARA! JAMIE JUST PUT HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE AND FORCED THE REFEREE TO CALL OFF THE PIN! XAVIER WILLIAMS MIGHT HAVE JUST BEEN WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION RIGHT THERE, BUT JAMIE O’HARA HAD THE RING AWARENESS OF A CHAMPION TO FIND A WAY TO CONTINUE THE MATCH! XAVIER WILLIAMS IS STUNNED, HIS MOUTH AND EYES WIDE OPEN IN SHOCK BEFORE IT QUICKLY TURNS INTO FRUSTRATION, REVEALING HIS TEMPER TO THE CROWD HERE TONIGHT! Xavier pulls himself together and rises up from the canvas as we can see Jamie, almost broken and defeated as he might barely even be conscious and running on pure instinct right now, starts to get up to his knees as he wobbles around. He almost looks barely coherent, Jake! Xavier walks over to Jamie and grabs him by the face, screaming into it about why he can’t stay down and why he won’t just give up, before he pulls him in GETTING HIM IN POSITION FOR THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER!

Jake Mercer: JAMIE O’HARA LIFTS UP WITH ALL OF HIS STRENGTH AND DROPS XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH THE BACK BODY DROP BEFORE HE COLLAPSES TO THE CANVAS ON HIS HANDS AND KNEES! As Xavier starts to roll around to try and get up, Jamie scrambles over to the turnbuckle corner so that he can get to his feet! Xavier is able now to pick himself up and stand on his as he turns around RIGHT INTO THE IN EXCELSIS! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE DRIVEN RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF XAVIER AS JAMIE JUST RUNS THROUGH HIM AT MACH SPEED! THE HEAD OF XAVIER WILLIAMS SNAPPING BACK FROM THE WICKED IMPACT AND O’HARA HAS DRAWN BLOOD! BEGINNING TO TRICKLE FROM THE MOUTH OF THE CHALLENGER! JAMIE ISN’T DONE! JAMIE PULLS XAVIER OFF OF THE CANVAS AND UP ON HIS FEET AS HE PULLS HIM IN FOR THE WRISTLOCK! ROMAN SKY! JAMIE NAILS ALL OF THE BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE RIGHT THERE, BUT STILL RETAINS POSSESSION OF XAVIER’S ARM AS YOU CAN SEE THE PASSION BURNING INSIDE THE EYES OF THE CHAMPION, AS HE LOOKS DOWN TO HIS OPPONENT! YOU CAN SEE XAVIER BARELY ABLE TO STAND BUT STILL HE FIGHTS ON; THE BLOOD, MORE AND MORE FLOWING FROM A CUT INSIDE. O’HARA SHAKING HIS HEAD AND DRAGS XAVIER BACK IN- A SECOND ROMAN SKY!! A SECOND CONNECTING FLUSH ON THE JAW, XAVIER DROPS TO A KNEE BUT HIS HATE-FILLED EYES STILL STARING A HOLE THROUGH O’HARA. O’HARA, WOBBLY FEET AS THE CONTEST TAKES ITS TOLL, STARING DOWN AT WILLIAMS.

Stew-O: MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS HAVE LED TO THIS MOMENT, THIS VERY MOMENT AND O’HARA CANNOT, SIMPLY CANNOT PUT XAVIER WILLIAMS AWAY. XAVIER WILLIAMS WILL NOT LET THIS SLIP, WILL NOT BE REMEMBERED ON THE LOSING SIDE OF THE WAR BETWEEN THESE TWO MEN. O’HARA’S BEST SHOT, WILLIAMS HAS SOAKED IT TWICE AND HAS REFUSED TO DIE. XAVIER TRYING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, O’HARA KEEPING A TIGHT GRIP ON THE WRIST AND SHAKING HIS HEAD. XAVIER AGAIN TRYING TO LAUNCH A COUNTER BUT HE DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH LEFT, FALLING BACK TO THE CANVAS ON HIS KNEES. O’HARA BENDING DOWN ON HIS HAUNCHES; UNBALANCED BUT IN THE FACE OF WILLIAMS. O’HARA LIFTING XAVIER’S HEAD UP, THEIR EYES MERE INCHES…

Jamie O’Hara (No Mic): THE MIGHTY. DO NOT. FUCKING. KNEEL!!!

Jake Mercer: JAMIE O’HARA RISES BACK TO HIS FEET, DRAGGING XAVIER BACK TO HIS AND LOCKS IN THE SLEEPER! SQUEEZING THE VERY LIFE FROM HIS BITTER RIVAL. PURE HATE IN HIS EYES AS THE BLOOD POURS FROM XAVIER’S MOUTH LIKE A DAM THAT HAS BROKEN IT’S LEVEES DOWN ONTO THE ARMS OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION; SCREAMING AT “THE MIGHTY DO NOT FUCKING KNEEL” INTO HIS EAR OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. XAVIER WILLIAMS’ LEGS BEGINNING TO BUCKLE UNDERNEATH HIM, TRYING DESPERATELY TO REACH THE ROPES BUT THERE’S SO LITTLE LIFE LEFT IN THOSE EYES, EVERY MOVEMENT INCREDIBLE SLOW, WASTING EVERY OUNCE OF PRECIOUS FUEL LEFT IN THE TANK. XAVIER’S EYES WIDENING AS HE REALISES THIS MIGHT JUST BE IT, IT ALL SLIPPING AWAY WITH EVERY BREATH HE TAKES AND EVERY OUNCE OF BLOOD THAT SPILLS FROM HIS MOUTH. O’HARA CINCHING THE SLEEPER IN MORE AND MORE; THE SLEW OF WORDS, A WAR CRY NOW PURELY A PRIMAL SCREAM AS HE DEMANDS XAVIER WILLIAMS TO LET GO, TO SIMPLY FADE AWAY.

Stew-O: BUT ONE LAST REACH FOR THE ROPES, THE EYES OF WILLIAMS AS OPEN AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE…AND THE ARM DROPS! THE ARM DROPS BY THE SIDE AND O’HARA’S SCREAMS COME TO A HALT. HE CLUTCHES THE WRIST AND SPINS WILLIAMS OUT WITH THE RIPCORD; THE FIGHTER WITH XAVIER REFUSING TO DIE, SPITTING BLOOD IN THE FACE OF O’HAR– ROMAN SKY!!! ONE FINAL, EMPHATIC BICYCLE KNEE TO THE JAW OF XAVIER WILLIAMS, AN ANSWER TO HIS FINAL MOMENT OF DEFIANCE; O’HARA REFUSING TO ALLOW THE EMOTION GET THE BEST OF HIM. XAVIER SLUMPS TO THE CANVAS AND O’HARA, AS IF EVERYTHING HE HAD LEFT WAS BEHIND THAT KNEE, CRUMBLES TO THE CANVAS DROPPING ACROSS THE CHEST OF HIS FALLEN FOE.

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

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin hits as both men remain motionless in the ring. O’Hara staring off to the distance as Xavier stares up into the night sky. Jamie O’Hara slowly pushes himself away from Xavier, fighting back tears as the referee steps over to hand him the World Heavyweight Championship. O’Hara remains on his knees, staring at Xavier with his championship in his hands)

Ring Announcer: Here is your winner AND STTTTTIIIIILLLLLLLL EAW WWWWOOOORRRRLLLLDDDD HEEEEAAAVVVYYYYYWEEEEIIIIIGGGGHHHHTTTT CCCHHHHAAAAAMMMPPPPIIIIOOONNNNN… JAAAMMMMIIIIIEEEEEE O’HHHHAAAARRRRRRAAAA!!!!

Stew-O: HE HAS DONE IT! AFTER ALL OF THESE MONTHS AND EVERYTHING THAT THESE MEN HAVE PUT THEMSELVES THROUGH – THE PAIN AND THE SUFFERING, THE REHABILITATION, THE AGONY OF COSTING ONE ANOTHER WHAT THEY CHERISHED MOST – THE WAR OF THE MIGHTY DON’T KNEEL HAS COME TO THE CONCLUSION IN THE ONLY MANNER POSSIBLE! VICIOUS, SPITEFUL, EXHAUSTING, BUT IT’S THE CHAMPION, JAMIE O’HARA WHO HAS RETAINED HIS EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP TONIGHT AT PAIN FOR PRIDE X AGAINST XAVIER WILLIAMS!

Jake Mercer: Both of them left it all in the ring and tonight, Jamie O’Hara can go home with the fact that he walked out of this war as the EAW World Heavyweight Champion! As for Xavier Williams, he had to suffer with the fate that he couldn’t capture the championship once again, but a glorious way for him to have to meet it! He gave it everything and tonight, he can be proud in that regard!

(Jamie rises to his feet and hoists the World Heavyweight Championship onto his shoulder as Xavier stirs on the canvas. Cameron Ella Ava makes her way into ring from beside the ramp and plants a kiss on O’Hara’s cheek that still doesn’t break his gaze on Williams. Xavier slowly pulls himself up to his feet with the help of the ropes. The two stare at one another for a moment as some pyrotechnics shoot from the top of the stadium; the crackle of fireworks can barely be heard as “Kashmir” continues to boom throughout the stadium.)

Stew-O: We’ve said it all this time, the final chapter in this rivalry and there was no better place to put this feud to rest…but perhaps…perhaps Jake this isn’t the last we’ve seen between these two.

(Xavier and O’Hara slightly nod at one another, neither cracking any semblance of a smile or grin as Xavier drops back to the canvas and rolls out of the ring. A ringside assistant passes him a towel to wipe the blood from his mouth as he backs up the ramp, still intently focused on the ring. O’Hara turns to Cameron and kisses her, finally breaking his stare on Xavier before making his way to the corner and holding the World Heavyweight Championship in the air with Cameron applauding in the ring. The camera focuses on Xavier, awashed with disappointment with the couple celebrating in the ring before fading to black.)

Pierre: What an absolutely incredible two days this has been, but Cherish, it’s not over yet. We’ve got one more match. One FINAL match, and it’s as “Final” as it gets. Two men clashing here on the biggest stage of them all. A mentor and his protege, two friends driven by very different ideals. After tonight, there will be no next chapter in the books of these two individuals. This is where it ends for both of them.

(A video package plays; recapping the story of Brian Daniels and Robbie V’s careers, from them coming together as a tag team eight years ago to their revival this year at King of Elite, before imploding after Brian Daniels sacrificed his career to allow Robbie to face him in one final match at Pain For Pride)

(The camera transitions back to MetLife Stadium where the entire Rutherford crowd is on their feet)

(The arena darkens as a video begins to play with the beginning of “The Dragonborn Comes” by Malukah starts in the background)

“Our Hero, our Hero, claims a warrior’s heart”…

(Brian Daniels is shown starting in EAW as Viper, teaming with Robbie V and battling in matches on his own)

“I tell you, I tell you, the Dragonborn comes”…

(Brian Daniels is shown returning to EAW without his mask under his new name, and competing against various other wrestlers)

“With a voice wielding power of the ancient Nord arts”…

(Brian Daniels is shown winning the World Heavyweight Championship, defending it again and again, proudly raising it up in the air)

“Believe, believe, the Dragonborn comes”…

(The video suddenly burns away and the song stops as the lights all throughout MetLife Stadium turn on, all brightly lit)

(“Paint It Black” by Ramin Djawadi plays all throughout MetLife Stadium as the crowd erupts with cheers)

Pierre: Here he comes.

(After several seconds, a stoic Brian Daniels slowly makes his way out onto the massive stage, dressed in all black attire with dragons embroidered on his onto the tights and kickpads, as well as a custom black motorcycle jacket with a dragon designed on the back of it that goes all the way to his right arm)

Cherish: Brian Daniels looks as focused as he has ever been in his entire career, and I’m not surprised, Pierre. This match… It means absolutely everything to him. To both of them.

(Brian Daniels begins to walk forward as an animated Black Dragon follows along him upon the LED ramp while Stadium goes pitch black behind every step he takes)

Pierre: And what a sight to behold this is! Brian Daniels – this Black Dragon – he’s literally painting MetLife Stadium black as he makes his way towards the ring! If you had told me this is the man we would be seeing eight years prior when he first stepped into a ring at Pain For Pride, I would have never believed you, not for a second!

Cherish: He’s got something to prove, Pierre. He said it himself – everything he’s done has been with the goal in mind of making this match come to fruition one day. He fought to be the best, but being the best was never good enough.

(Half of MetLife Stadium goes pitch black behind Brian Daniels as he makes it to the bottom of the ramp, making his way up the nearby stairs and into the ring as the crowd continues to cheer him on. The entire Stadium goes pitch black for a few seconds as he steps into the center of the ring, before the lights return and the EAW crowd fills the ring with black streamers)

Pierre: Well what an entrance this is! The fans are loving it just as much as I am! This is a man on a mission, and he refuses to walk out of Pain For Pride without accomplishing it!

(“Paint It Black” fades out as Brian Daniels backs into a nearby corner while the Referee and other crew members at ringside clear the ring of the black steamers)

(The entire Stadium’s LEDs become the image of a desert with with certain lighting throughout the rest of the Stadium going dark to emphasize it. Several items are shown lying in the sand of the desert: a Crown, the National Extreme Championship, the Unified Tag Team Championships, and various other relics of Robbie V’s past)

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said–Two vast and trunkless legs of stone stand in the desert…

(The sound of wind throughout the desert can be heard all throughout MetLife Stadium as more relics are shown, such as a mask replica of Robbie V’s facepaint as “The Legendary” Sekaiichi)

Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read…

(More and more relics of Robbie V’s past are shown barely visible in the sand: bloodied handcuffs, photographs of his days as a rookie, and various accolades he won before EAW)

Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:

(The lights in MetLife Stadium abruptly go out)

And on the pedestal these words appear:

(The lights in the Stadium return as the camera and everyone else’s attention is turned to the opposite side of the arena where a custom entrance is shown, designed to look like a desert)

“My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings!”

(Robbie V rises from the sand on a platform, dressed in a custom airbrushed singlet with black and gold dragons upon it, wearing a black trenchcoat and face paint of his days as “The Legendary” Sekaiichi, his World Heavyweight Championship Crown upon his head, and replicas of all the Championships he’s won hanging from him as the crowd erupts with cheers)

“Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”

(“Penance” by contRoVersy plays all throughout MetLife Stadium as all of the fans in front of Robbie suddenly part from both sides for him to walk through as he steps down from his custom stage and down to them, making his way towards the ring)

Pierre: And an equally telling entrance from Robbie V as he makes his way in Brian Daniels’ direction, parting the roaring fans like they were the Red Sea, covered head to toe in relics of is past!

Cherish: Not only that, Pierre, look!

(Robbie takes the World Heavyweight Championship Crown off of his head and throws it to the crowd)

Pierre: He’s throwing it all away?! Robbie’s getting rid of all of it!

(Robbie throws each Championship replica into the crowd, keeping the Unified Tag Team Championship with him as he next takes off his trench coat and throws it to the fans as well)

Cherish: Robbie V sending a message of his own to his opponent tonight – shedding absolutely everything he’s ever achieved and giving it all away to these fans here in Rutherford! Just as Brian Daniels has done, Robbie V too gives up everything he’s got for this!

(Robbie hops over the barricade, grabbing a nearby towel and wiping the face paint off of his face before making his way over to the steps and entering the ring)

Pierre: Daniels looks as ready as he’ll ever be for this! Eight years in the making it’s been for these two men, and he looks like he can hardly contain himself as he locks eyes with Robbie!

(Robbie looks at the Unified Tag Team Championship in his hands for several seconds before raising his head, looking at Brian Daniels once more. Robbie takes the Unified Tag Team Championship and throws it out into the sea of fans before turning back to Brian as both men get face to face)

Cherish: I think that says it all and more right there, Pierre! It’s all or nothing for these two! Nothing left to lose! Nothing left to give! The only thing anyone is walking out of here with is a win or a loss! No friendship is going to stop what these two are willing to do to one another!

(“Penance” fades out as the Referee makes sure both Robbie and Brian stand back in their respective corners while the Ring Announcer steps forth into the center of the ring)

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen… THIS IS YOUR PAIN FOR PRIDE X MAIN EVENT!!!!…..

(The crowd erupts with cheers as the Announcer continues)

Announcer: It will be scheduled for one fall, and IS THE FINAL MATCH OF BOTH COMPETITORS EVER!!….. Introducing first, to my right…. Hailing from New York City, New York…. He weighed in tonight at 210 Pounds…. HE IS “THE MAN IN BLACK”…. “DRAGONBORN”…. BRIAN DAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEELLLLSSSSSSS!!!!

(The crowd cheers Brian Daniels remains in his corner, not talking his eyes off of Robbie V)

Announcer: And to my left, his opponent…. Hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada…. He weighed in tonight at 237 Pounds…. HE IS “THE LEGENDARY SEKAIICHI”…. “THE ICONOCLAST”…. “THE EXTREME DREAM”…. “OZYMANDIAS”….. THIS IS ROB! BIE!! V!!!!!

(The crowd cheers as a smirking Robbie V stares down with Brian Daniels, visibly saying something across from the ring)

Pierre: I never would have imagined we would see such animosity from these two men, but here we are. What’s done is done, and there’s nothing left but this match, and if nothing else, they are ready.

(The Referee checks on both competitors. After several seconds, the Referee calls for the bell)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Pierre: Our Pain For Pride X main event is officially underway as Brian Daniels is the first to make a move of the two, cautiously inching his way towards Robbie V, who remains more calm and collected than I anticipated… Robbie nonchalantly stepping out of the corner now… And he tells Daniels to give him all he’s got! Robbie with a power play of sorts right off the bat as he throws the gauntlet down, telling Daniels to take a free shot! I’m not so sure it’s a wise strategy to ask for a kick from a man with legs as lethal as Brian Daniels, but Robbie doesn’t seem to care!

Cherish: Daniels senses a trap waiting for him, and he may be right, as he instead invites Robbie in for a collar and elbow tie up… Robbie shrugs it off and accepts it as both men aggressively lock up in the center of the ring! Daniels is quick to break through it, grabbing the arm and weaving under to wrench it! Robbie rolls through! He kips up back to his feet! Robbie swats the hand of Daniels away and catches him with a textbook dropkick! Daniels sees it coming a mile away as he dodges the dropkick and drops down for a lateral cover! Not even a one count before Robbie kicks out of it, but Daniels immediately catches him with a side headlock! ROBBIE PLANTS HIS FEET, DEADLIFTING DANIELS UP WITH HIM TO A VERTICAL BASE, LOOKING FOR A POTENTIAL BACK DROP DRIVER!

Pierre: Daniels is quick to break the headlock and rolls off the back of Robbie! HE LOCKS THE WAIST! Robbie immediately blocking any attempt at a suplex! He’s well aware of whatever this man, Brian Daniels, has up his sleeve! Robbie with a standing switch! Daniels throws an elbow back into the side of Robbie’s skull! Nobody’s home as Robbie ducks it! He catches Daniels as it misses! NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! Daniels is fighting back – he refuses to let it happen! Daniels manages to get himself back on his feet, but Robbie IMMEDIATELY drives both men into the nearest corner! Daniels with clubbing blows to the back of Robbie, but Robbie with a powerful shoulder thrust right into the mid-section! A second shoulder thrust! A third connects, accumulating visible damage to Brian Daniels! Robbie puts a stop to the assault–

(Robbie slaps Brian Daniels across the face in the corner before backing away as the crowd stirs)

Cherish: Robbie V with a showing of disrespect to Brian! Things have truly gotten to that level, and Robbie doesn’t seem to care at all! Daniels looks like he wasn’t expecting something like that as Robbie once again eggs him on! He’s asking for a kick once more! You can see the anger in the eyes of Brian Daniels as he walks out of the corner, butting heads with Robbie! Both men exchanging words Robbie pushes Daniels back! DANIELS SWINGS WITH A POWERFUL KICK!! IT LOUDLY CONNECTS RIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF ROBBIE! Robbie nearly faltered, but he pulls himself together! Robbie shaking his head now, telling Daniels that was nothing! If he’s hurting, he’s not showing it! DANIELS SWINGS WITH ANOTHER!

Pierre: ROBBIE CATCHES IT THIS TIME! DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP! Daniels immediately plants that captured foot down to the canvas and manages to spin out of the leg whip before it can connect! Robbie just goaded him into a trap, and it nearly worked! Look at the smile on the face of Robbie as he gets to one knee! Both men lock eyes! This crowd can already tell how hostile it’s getting!

Cherish: Did Robbie just tell Brian he wants his leg? Robbie outright telling his opponent what he’s aiming for as Brian doesn’t back down! He’s telling Robbie to come and get it as this Rutherford crowd rallies behind him! Robbie rises to his feet with that same sinister smile! HE BURSTS FORWARD, STRAIGHT FOR DANIELS AS HE LUNGES FOR THAT LEG! DANIELS LIFTS A KNEE FOR HIM! ROBBIE SEES IT COMING AS HE MANEUVERS AROUND IT AND CATCHES DANIELS WITH A SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP!!

Referee: ONE!

Pierre: Hardly even a one count before Daniels kicks out of it as both men scramble back to their feet! Robbie’s up first and NAILS Brian with a powerful kick of his own before he can get to a vertical base! Daniels tries to get up, only to take another kick right into the sternum! Brian Daniels can feel the control edging into Robbie’s favor here! He’s in pain! Daniels is unable to pull himself off of his knees as Robbie capitalizes with another vicious kick into the chest! Robbie’s grinning – he loves this! Robbie paces back and forth with a plan in mind! Daniels is at his mercy here as Robbie throws another kick to the chest! Another! AND ANOTHER CONNECTS! Robbie backs up, letting out a battle cry, ripping a page out of his opponent’s playbook! HE CAPS IT OFF WITH A FINAL KICK RIGHT TO THE SKULL!

Cherish: BUT IT’S MISSED AS DANIELS DUCKS HIS HEAD! HE SPRINGS TO HIS FEET AND CRASHES INTO THE GUT OF ROBBIE, DRIVING HIM INTO THE NEAREST CORNER! Daniels with a shoulder thrust of his own! Another shoulder thrust! Daniels breaks it and SLAPS ROBBIE RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE! Daniels returning the favor as–

Pierre: ROBBIE WITH AN OPEN-HAND CHOP TO THE FACE OF DANIELS! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ROBBIE’S UNLOADING OUT OF THAT CORNER WITH BOTH HANDS, SLAPPING BRIAN DANIELS BACK AND FORTH HERE! DANIELS PUTS HIS ARMS UP, TRYING TO DEFEND HIMSELF, BUT ROBBIE’S GOT A WILD LOOK IN HIS EYES AS HE LAYS INTO HIM! HE DRIVES A KNEE INTO THE GUT OF DANIELS! ANOTHER KNEE AS HE FORCES DANIELS DOWN! ROBBIE WITH CLUBBING BLOWS AND KNEES REPEATEDLY, OVER AND OVER AGAIN INTO HIS OPPONENT! DANIELS CAN’T DO A THING! ROBBIE’S GOT BRIAN DOWN ON HIS HANDS AND KNEES AS HE DRIVES REPEATED KNEES INTO THE RIBS FROM THE SIDE! Robbie gets right back up to his feet as he backs up! HE CHARGES FORWARD AND DRIVES A KNEE RIGHT INTO THOSE RIBS AGAIN! Robbie looks gone! Absolutely gone as he drags Daniels up…

Cherish: And Robbie with a stiff kick right into the leg of Brian as he gets him on his feet, dropping Daniels down to his knees! Just as he promised, he’s going right for that right leg of Brian Daniels! Robbie once again taunting Daniels, telling him to get up before clutching him by the hair and pulling him up… And Robbie with a boot right into the right knee of Daniels as he once again drops to his knees in pain! Robbie looks like he’s having the time of his life right now as he backs up into the corner, and like a shark that smells blood in the water, he’s coming to tear Brian Daniels apart! Brian struggles to pull himself up! That leg has to be killing him! His ribs too! ROBBIE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER, LUNGING RIGHT AT THAT LEG!

Pierre: DANIELS LIFTS HIS LEFT KNEE AND CATCHES THE INCOMING ROBBIE RIGHT IN THE DAMN MOUTH!! ROBBIE’S SCRAMBLING IN PAIN, FAVORING HIS MOUTH! I can’t even imagine how much that hurt! Daniels managed to ensnare his opponent this time around as Robbie manages to get back to his feet! DANIELS CHARGES IN AND NAILS ROBBIE BEFORE HE CAN EVEN ATTEMPT ANYTHING WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK!! Robbie is sent crashing hard into the nearby corner of the ring, struggling to pull himself up as Daniels rises back up, looking more fired up than ever! HE CHARGES IN ONCE MORE! A SECOND VIOLENT RUNNING DROPKICK CONNECTS!! DANIELS IS BACK ON HIS FEET AND WITH MOMENTUM AT HIS BACK HE RUSHES INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER!

Cherish: NO–ROBBIE BURSTS OUT OF THE CORNER, RIGHT ON BRIAN’S TAIL! DANIELS HITS THE CORNER AND IS MET WITH A LOUD YAKUZA KICK ACROSS THE FACE FROM ROBBIE!! Daniels is back on the defensive after eating that brutal kick! Robbie knows he just about let this contest slip through his fingers there! Daniels slumps down into the corner as Robbie stomps away at him! He gets in Brian’s face with a few choice words before looking to capitalize! Robbie’s got something in mind here as he backs up into the corner across the ring… HE’S LOOKING FOR A RUNNING DROPKICK OF HIS OWN PERHAPS AS HE EXPLODES OUT OF IT WITH DANIELS IN HIS SIGHTS! BRIAN EXPLODES OUT OF HIS CORNER AS WELL AS THESE TWO MEN MAKE THEIR WAY TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER! ROBBIE WITH ANOTHER YAKUZA!!

Pierre: DANIELS CATCHES IT AND VIOLENTLY DRIVES ROBBIE DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH A DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP OUT OF THE DAMN BLUE!! ROBBIE FAVORING THAT LEFT LEG DANIELS JUST PULLED HIM DOWN BY AS HE ESCAPES TO THE OUTSIDE! Robbie’s looking to recuperate, but Daniels has other plans in mind! He’s not having it as he rolls to the outside, running around to where Robbie is on his feet, damaged! DANIELS RUSHES IN FROM BEHIND AND NAILS ROBBIE WITH A LOUD RUNNING KICK RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF THAT LEFT LEG! Robbie drops down on the mat in pain, clutching at that leg! Daniels with a wild look of his own as he stomps away at that left leg on the outside! The Referee starts a count!

Referee: ONE!!…………… TWO!!…………

Cherish: Daniels puts a stop to the attack and drags Robbie V up, looking to bring it right back into the ring! Robbie is sent rolling back into the ring as Daniels looks to follow it up here, climbing up to the apron and making is ascent to the nearest top turnbuckle! Daniels could be looking for a Diving Headbutt! No–Robbie’s having none of it as he purposely rolls out of reach! Robbie crawls into the nearest corner, opposite of Daniels, still visibly hurt! Daniels drops down from the top with a look of determination and malicious intent on his face! HE PICKS UP MOMENTUM, BARRELING STRAIGHT FOR ROBBIE! INCOMING! RUNNING DROPKICK CONNECTS INTO ROBBIE IN THAT CORNER!! HE’S BACK AT IT ALREADY AS HE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AND GOES TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! INCOMING!! ANOTHER RUNNING DROPKICK CRASHES RIGHT INTO ROBBIE!!

Pierre: Robbie’s in trouble! Somehow, some way, the tide has completely turned! Brian’s back up to his feet and right back in that corner! DANIELS COMES TOWARDS HIM LIKE A LOCOMOTIVE LOOKING TO DESTROY ANYTHING IN ITS WAY! NO–ROBBIE MANAGES TO STOP DANIELS DEAD IN HIS TRACKS WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE! Daniels is sent dropping down to the canvas as Robbie immediately looks to seize this golden opportunity, pulling himself up on the second turnbuckle! DANIELS IS ALREADY BACK TO HIS FEET AND CHARGES FORWARD WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT! HE JUMPS FOR A FINAL RUNNING DROPKICK INTO ROBBIE ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! ROBBIE IS SENT CRASHING AND BURNING TO THE OUTSIDE!!

Cherish: Robbie didn’t take into account that no amount of strategy is gonna protect you against a wild card like Brian Daniels! As technically gifted as he is, he’s just as much headstrong and violent as they come! He’s like an animal that doesn’t know when to stop! Robbie’s paying for that crucial mistake right here on the outside, struggling to get back up! He crawls over to the timekeeper’s both, clutching the barricade to aid him as Daniels rolls to the outside, and he’s not finished by any stretch of the imagination! He’s got Robbie locked well in his sights! DANIELS CHARGES IN AS ROBBIE PULLS HIMSELF UP!! YET ANOTHER VIOLENT RUNNING DROPKICK CONNECTS INTO ROBBIE, SENDING HIM OVER THAT BARRICADE AND CRASHING INTO THE TIMEKEEPER’S BOOTH!!! This crowd is loving it! They’re on their feet for Daniels as he gets back up! He reaches over, grabbing Robbie by his hair and drags him right back over that barricade! Robbie looks like he’s seen better days! I think he may have made a big mistake and underestimated this man, Brian Daniels! He let Daniels take charge, and he’s been paying the price for it ever since! Daniels sends Robbie back into the ring before sliding in himself, rising back to his feet!

Pierre: Robbie’s in serious pain after taking all of this brutal dropkicks as he struggles to pull himself up to his knees! He’s not giving up! Robbie puts his hands up, still looking to fight! DANIELS BREAKS RIGHT THROUGH IT WITH A GUNSHOT-LOUD KICK TO THE CHEST! ANOTHER KICK BOUNCES OFF THE STERNUM OF ROBBIE V! ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER! BRIAN DANIELS IS UNLOADING WITH A MERCILESS ONSLAUGHT OF KICKS!! HE BACKS UP, LETTING OUT A BATTLE CRY FOR THE 80 THOUSAND PLUS IN ATTENDANCE TO JOIN IN WITH! HE SWINGS A FINAL KICK THAT CONNECTS LOUDLY OFF THE SKULL OF ROBBIE!!! Robbie drops down, barely able to move! Brian Daniels looks more fired up than ever before! He may want to end this one already! Robbie hasn’t been able to stop him whatsoever since letting Daniels get in the driver’s seat!

Cherish: This crowd is on their feet for it! They know what’s coming! Daniels drags an exhausted, battered Robbie up! Daniels showing absolutely no mercy for his friend and former partner as he clutches him by the face to drag him up! HE’S GOT HIM! CAUSTIC ECHO!!!!

Pierre: ROBBIE SWATS IT AWAY WITH A DOUBLE AXE HANDLE!! SPINNING BACKHAND TO THE FACE OF BRIAN DANIELS!! DANIELS REMAINS ON HIS FEET!

DANIELS LOOKS ABSOLUTELY LIVID, THINKING IT WAS OVER THERE! HE HITS THE ROPES! PENALTY KICK!!!

Cherish: ROBBIE CATCHES IT! HE CAUGHT THE INCOMING LEG OF DANIELS, TRAPPING IT!! DANIELS LOSES HIS BALANCE, FALLING DOWN INTO THIS ACHILLES LOCK FROM ROBBIE!! ROBBIE TOLD HIM HE WANTS THAT LEG, AND HE’S TAKING IT BY ANY MEANS AS HE PULLS FEROCIOUSLY AT THE ACHILLES TENDON OF DANIELS!! DANIELS IS STRUGGLING – DOING ALL HE CAN TO FIGHT OUT OF THIS SUBMISSION! DANIELS LIFTS HIS FREE LEG AND DRIVES THE HEEL OF IT DOWN INTO THE BODY OF ROBBIE!

HE’S GOT DANIELS IN A BOSTON CRAB, FURTHER EXPLOITING THAT RIGHT LEG!! DANIELS IS IN SERIOUS PAIN! LOOKING FOR THE ROPES! LOOKING FOR ANYTHING TO SAVE HIM! ROBBIE STOMPS HIS FOOT DOWN INTO THE BACK OF DANIELS’ SKULL NOW, KEEPING THAT BOSTON CRAB IN!!

Pierre: ABSOLUTELY PUNISHING DANIELS HERE AS HE STOMPS AWAY AT HIM! DANIELS IS DESPERATE, CLAWING HIS WAY TOWARDS THE ROPES!! I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE HOW MUCH PAIN HE’S IN RIGHT NOW! DANIELS CLUTCHES THE BOTTOM ROPE! HE MADE IT!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!

Cherish: Robbie breaks the hold, stumbling forward and down to his knees, exhausted! He’s still very much in pain, but he managed to turn the tide back into his favor, at least for the moment! He still needs to follow it up, and soon!

Pierre: And keep in mind, we really don’t often see Robbie go for a technical pursuit like working over a limb and exploiting it with holds – that’s more like something Brian Daniels is famous for, but that may be exactly what Robbie intended with it! He may have wanted to go with a strategy Daniels wasn’t prepared for, and it may save his hide the more he works over that right leg that Daniels NEEDS! Robbie looks like an animal stalking its prey as he pulls himself up with the ropes, opposite from a still hurt Daniels! Daniels pulls himself up against the second rope as Robbie gets to his feet… ROBBIE CHARGES FORWARD WITH DANIELS AGAINST THE SECOND ROPE! 619?!!! NO–ROBBIE FEIGNS A 619 AS HE STOPS HIMSELF ON THE APRON AND WIPES HIS BOOT ACROSS THE FACE OF DANIELS! Robbie once more choosing to get inside Daniels’ head, pretending to go for that old maneuver of his and instead disrespecting him with that boot across the face! Robbie casually enters the ring, still faintly stumbling on that hurt left leg as he makes his way over to his opponent…

Cherish: Robbie telling Daniels to get up… HE LIFTS A LEG AND SENDS IT DOWN ACROSS THE BACK OF BRIAN’S SKULL WITH AN AXE KICK!! DANIELS DROPS DOWN, LIFTING HIMSELF BACK UP WITH A GLAZED OVER LOOK IN HIS EYES! Robbie once again yells at Daniels to get up, toying with him some more! Daniels could very well be concussed! ROBBIE WITH ANOTHER MERCILESS AXE KICK INTO THE BACK OF DANIELS’ SKULL!! He immediately drags Daniels up! He’s got a handful of Brian’s hair as he pulls him to his feet! Robbie pushes Daniels, telling him to come at him once more here! I’ve never seen such a look in this man’s eyes! He wants it! He wants Brian to come at him with all he’s got! ROBBIE KICKS DANIELS INTO THE SIDE OF THAT INJURED LEG! Daniels drops to one knee in pain as Robbie continues to egg him on! He pulls Daniels back up, telling him to come at him once more!

Pierre: DANIELS SWINGS WITH A FOREARM! IT’S BLOCKED AND COUNTERED WITH A BRUTAL FOREARM OF HIS OWN BY ROBBIE!! He keeps Daniels on his feet, not letting him drop! He’s telling him to do it again! He slaps Daniels across the face, yelling at him! DANIELS THROWS A FASTER FOREARM TO THE FACE OF ROBBIE THIS TIME AROUND! ROBBIE DOESN’T LOOK FAZED IN THE SLIGHTEST! HE DEMANDS ANOTHER! DANIELS THROWS A LOUDER FOREARM INTO THE FACE! ROBBIE UNLOADS WITH RAPID-FIRE FOREARMS AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN INTO THE FACE OF BRIAN DANIELS!!! HE PICKS DANIELS UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! DANIELS REFUSES TO DIE AS HE DRIVES AN ELBOW DOWN INTO THE SIDE OF ROBBIE’S HEAD! DANIELS IS LETTING LOOSE WITH REPEATED ELBOWS!! ROBBIE REFUSES TO FALTER! HE GOES FOR IT! FIREMAN’S CARRY NECKBREAKER!!

Cherish: Daniels manages to land on his feet! I don’t know how he pulled that off, but he quickly hits the ropes–

Pierre: AND ROBBIE IS RIGHT THERE BEHIND HIM AS HE CONNECTS WITH A BOOT STRAIGHT TO THE FACE OF BRIAN!! HE PULLS HIM UP! FIREMAN’S CARRY NECKBREAKER CONNECTS!! DANIELS IS LEFT IN A SEATED POSITION AS ROBBIE RUNS ACROSS THE RING, HITTING THE ROPES! INCOMING!! PENALTY KICK CONNECTS LOUDLY OFF THE CHEST OF DANIELS!! ROBBIE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH AN IMMEDIATE STANDING DOUBLE KNEE MOONSAULT WITH ALL 237 POUNDS OF HIM COMING DOWN ONTO THE BODY OF BRIAN DANIELS!!! THE TRILOGY IS GOOD AS ROBBIE CHOOSES NOT TO COVER! He might regret that! He looks to have Daniels in position… ROBBIE CHARGES INTO THE ROPES ONCE MORE! HERE HE COMES! ROLLING THUNDER!

Cherish: DANIELS ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE!

Pierre: ROBBIE DOESN’T STOP AS HE KEEPS GOING AND CLEARS THE ROPES WITH A FLIP TO THE OUTSIDE RIGHT ONTO AN UNSUSPECTING DANIELS!!! Incredible! Brian Daniels has lost every last ounce of momentum he garnered earlier! Robbie V is in full control! That leg is still bothering him, but he’s been through far worse, and he knows it as he starts pulling himself back up there on the outside! Daniels is completely at his mercy! He drags Brian up… AND SENDS HIM CRASHING RIGHT INTO THE NEARBY BARRICADE! The Referee starts a count!

Referee: ONE!!…………….. TWO!!………………

Cherish: Robbie rolls back in and right back out to break the count as he climbs up to his feet on the apron… I don’t like the look in his eyes right now, Pierre… I don’t like how far away Daniels is either! ROBBIE PICKS UP SPEED!! HE LEAPS AS FAR AS HE CAN AND CONNECTS WITH A BIG RUNNING CANNONBALL SENTON RIGHT INTO DANIELS AGAINST THAT BARRICADE!! ROBBIE’S GOTTA BE RUNNING ON PURE ADRENALINE BY THIS POINT AS HE CLIMBS RIGHT BACK TO HIS FEET, NOT SHOWING ANY SIGNS OF DAMAGE ANYMORE! HE STOMPS AWAY AT BRIAN! THE REFEREE’S TRYING TO GET HIM TO TAKE IT BACK INTO THE RING, BUT I THINK ROBBIE MAY BE STUCK IN HIS OWN LITTLE WORLD RIGHT NOW! HE CLIMBS THE STAIRS, BACK ONTO THE APRON! THIS CROWD WANTS IT AND SO DOES HE! HE’S BACKING UP AS FAR AS HE CAN! ROBBIE CHARGES!! LOOK OUT!!

Pierre: A JUMPING LOW DROPKICK OFF THE APRON AS THE SHEER IMPACT OF IT BREAKS THE DAMN BARRICADE!!! UNBELIEVABLE!! BRIAN DANIELS IS MOTIONLESS! MY GOD WHAT A MOVE! THE REFEREE RUSHES OUT TO CHECK ON BOTH MEN!

(A replay is shown of Robbie V’s Low Dropkick off the apron into Brian Daniels, crashing through the barricade)

Cherish: As much as I hate to say it, Brian Daniels may very well be at his limit! He may have bit off too much to swallow! Even with everything he dealt to Robbie, it’s like none of it mattered! Robbie looks unfazed by this point! It feels like Daniels’ offense earlier was all for naught – he may just be outmatched here! Maybe he awoke something in Robbie V that he never expected to be up against, and now it may all come down to this! Robbie drags Daniels up with him, getting him to his feet… He sends him rolling back into the ring, not quite as fired up as he was moments ago! Robbie looks almost disappointed as he rolls back into the ring, eying his opponent! I think he expected more out of this! This crowd continues to cheer on Brian Daniels, but I’m honestly not so sure it’s gonna get to him by this point! Robbie pulls himself up, backing into the nearby corner, reluctantly telling Daniels to get up! I’m not used to seeing Daniels in a position quite like this! I don’t think I’ve ever seen him get manhandled like this, but Robbie V’s got him! Daniels struggles to get up with every ounce of energy left in him as Robbie stalks him from the corner! HE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER AS DANIELS IS UP! CONCUSSION!!!! IT CONNECTS!!

(Brian Daniels tries to force himself to remain on his feet as the crowd erupts with cheers)

Pierre: HE’S STILL ALIVE! HE DOESN’T WANT IT TO END LIKE THIS! DANIELS DROPS TO HIS KNEES, UNABLE TO STAY UP ANY LONGER! Unbelievable resilience here from the longest-reigning World Heavyweight Champion in EAW History, and for good reason! He just took the full impact of that kick! He’s on his knees, but these fans are on their feet! They’re stomping away loudly as Brian Daniels shakes his head! He can’t let it end like this! Anything but this! Robbie looks almost like he doesn’t know what to say or do! HE NAILS DANIELS IN THE BACK OF THE SKULL WITH A SUPERKICK!! Daniels is down, but Robbie doesn’t go for the cover! He casually drops back into that corner, looking around at the roaring EAW crowd! He looks up at that Pain For Pride sign looming overhead! Robbie turns his attention back to Brian Daniels as he… He’s mimicking Mr. DEDEDE’s mannerisms?! Is he setting up for a Spear?!

Cherish: I don’t know what to make of this! Maybe he’s looking to succeed where he failed three years ago?! He’s got Brian locked in his sights! Daniels drags himself up, unaware of what’s coming! HE’S UP! DANIELS TURNS AROUND AS ROBBIE CHARGES IN!! SPEAR!!!!!

Pierre: IT’S NO GOOD AS DANIELS SIDESTEPS IT AND SENDS ROBBIE CRASHING SHOULDER-FIRST RIGHT INTO THE RINGPOST IN THE CORNER!! DANIELS NEARLY DROPS ONCE MORE, BUT HE REFUSES! HE PLANTS HIS FEET DOWN, NOT LETTING GO! HE TURNS HIS ATTENTION BACK TO ROBBIE! ROBBIE PULLS HIMSELF OUT OF THE CORNER, BUT DANIELS RUSHES IN, DRIVING HIM RIGHT BACK INTO THAT RINGPOST!! HE PULLS ROBBIE OUT OF IT, LOOKING FOR A DRAGON SUPLEX!! ROBBIE WON’T LET IT HAPPEN AS HE GETS AN ARM FREE! DANIELS LETS GO! AN ELBOW TO THE BACK OF ROBBIE’S SKULL! A SPINNING ELBOW CONNECTS!! A SPINNING FOREARM TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL NOW! ANOTHER SPINNING ELBOW! A SPINNING BACKFIST CONNECTS FOR DIE! DIE! DIE! AS DANIELS IS UNLOADING!! AND A FURIOUS ROBBIE V TURNS AROUND, REFUSING TO GO DOWN!! DANIELS WITH A FINAL VIOLENT SPINNING ELBOW INTO THE FACE OF ROBBIE AS BOTH MEN COLLAPSE TO THE CANVAS!!!

Cherish: WHAT A MATCH THIS HAS BEEN, PIERRE! BOTH MEN HAVE GIVEN EVERYTHING AND MORE ALREADY, AND NEITHER ONE WILL STOP!

(A slow-motion replay is shown of Brian Daniels connecting with a final spinning elbow into the face of Robbie V before both men collapse)

Cherish: Brian Daniels even moreso here after taking such a beating! He’s gotta be running on fumes by this point, but he may have just found a silver lining! There may be a sliver up hope for him just yet, if he can capitalize! Robbie is barely stirring as Daniels slowly rises back up to his feet! He’s up as he immediately loses his balance and drops back into that corner! Look at this! Daniels now! He’s the one doing the stalking, mimicking DEDEDE’s mannerisms! Robbie clutches the ropes, climbing back up on his feet! HE’S UP AS HE TURNS HIMSELF AROUND! INCOMING!! SPEAR!!!! DANIELS LAYS OUT ROBBIE WITH A BIG SPEAR!!! DANIELS LOOKING TO GET INSIDE OF ROBBIE’S HEAD WITH THAT! HE’S NOT DONE YET! DANIELS IS ALIVE ONCE MORE AS HE STUMBLES OVER TO THE NEARBY CORNER, CLIMBING UP! HE MAKES HIS ASCENT TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! DANIELS IS PERCHED!!

Pierre: No–Robbie rolls away, dropping to the outside! Look at the terror in Robbie’s eyes! I think Daniels may have shook him! We saw it at Resurrection V when DEDEDE attempted that Zenith North Star! He’s reliving the last Pain For Pride he headlined! HOLD ON–DANIELS NOW!! HE’S TRYING TO WALK ALONG THE TOP ROPE?! HE LEAPS OFF AND CONNECTS WITH A KNEE TO ROBBIE ON THE OUTSIDE!! Daniels is feeling it! He pulls himself up, rolling back into the ring! Daniels on his knees, looking around at this capacity crowd! I thought he was done for in this, but look at him now! He absolutely does not die! He pulls himself to his feet, looking like a man possessed! He’s got Robbie in his sights! DANIELS HITS THE ROPES AS ROBBIE PULLS HIMSELF UP AGAINST THE BARRICADE! SUICIDE DIVE!!! IT CONNECTS PICTURE PERFECTLY AS DANIELS IMMEDIATELY FLIPS ROBBIE OVER THE BARRICADE AND RIGHT INTO THE FRONT ROW!! DANIELS ISN’T DONE! HE WANTS TO PAY ROBBIE V BACK FOR ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING! HE’S BACK ON HIS FEET AS HE ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING! THE REFEREE’S TRYING TO GET HIM TO STOP, BUT THERE’S SIMPLY NO STOPPING THIS MAN! DANIELS ISN’T LETTING ANYTHING GET IN HIS WAY!

Cherish: THINK ABOUT WHATEVER IT IS YOU’RE ABOUT TO DO, BRIAN! I GOT A BAD FEELING ABOUT THIS AS HE EYES ROBBIE FROM THE RING, STILL STRUGGLING IN THE EMPTY SEATS OUT THERE AS THE CROWD HAS DISPERSED! DANIELS GRABS THE TOP ROPE! HE LEAPS TO IT!! PLAAANNCCCHHHHAAAAA!!!!

Pierre: BRIAN DANIELS FROM THE TOP ROPE OVER THE DAMN BARRICADE AND RIGHT INTO ROBBIE V AND EVERY SINGLE CHAIR IN RANGE WITH A SENTON PLANCHA!!!! DANIELS THROWING EVERY BIT OF CAUTION TO THE WIND WITH THAT, THINKING ABOUT NOTHING BUT PUNISHING HIS OPPONENT!! HOW OFTEN DO WE SEE THIS MAN TRY SOMETHING LIKE THAT?!

Cherish: I WISH WE SAW IT LESS OFTEN THAN THIS, BECAUSE HE MAY HAVE JUST CRUCIALLY SACRIFICED HIS OWN BODY FOR IT!!

(A slow-motion replay is shown of Brian Daniels’ springboard senton plancha into the front row onto Robbie V)

Pierre: The Referee rushes to the outside now, just trying to see if both of these men are still breathing after that! I don’t blame him! Daniels looks like he’s the only one moving, to no surprise, as he pushes the chairs away from him, struggling to get up!

Cherish: There’s just no way he’s not at his limit by this point! He’s gotta be in agony right now! The Referee can only watch as Daniels gets back to his feet, dragging a battered and beaten Robbie up! HE SETS HIM UP! DON’T–DRAGON SUPLEX!!! A VIOLENT RELEASE DRAGON SUPLEX RIGHT ON THE CONCRETE IN THE FIRST FEW ROWS!! DANIELS IS ABSOLUTELY PUNISHING ROBBIE! IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THESE MEN ARE FRIENDS, IF THEY STILL EVEN ARE! I CAN’T TELL ANYMORE! NOT AFTER EVERYTHING WE’VE SEEN! Daniels drags Robbie up with him once more, sending him back over the barricade! The Referee is pleading with these two to take it back into the ring, not wanting to have to count them out in such a huge match! Daniels doesn’t even seem to notice the Official as he pulls Robbie up and sends him rolling back into the ring! Daniels has only one thing on his mind, and that’s ending this! He climbs up to the apron!

Pierre: Looking for the high rent district! Daniels is up there! HE’S PERCHED! A BIG DIVING HEADBUTT CONNECTS, AND RIGHT INTO THAT INJURED SHOULDER OF ROBBIE!! DANIELS DOESN’T LOOK FOR A COVER!! HE WANTS MORE THAN THAT! HE WANTS TO END THIS RIGHT HERE AND NOW AS HE GRABS ROBBIE, GOING FOR IT!! HE’S GOT IT!! THE FOURTH SEAL!!!! THE FOURTH SEAL IS LOCKED IN ON ROBBIE V!!! THAT TORTUROUS OMOPLATA CROSSFACE IS LOCKED IN TIGHT, AND ROBBIE CAN’T DO A DAMN THING ABOUT IT!! HE’S IN FULL-ON PANIC MODE! DANIELS IS DOING ALL HE CAN TO KEEP HIM FROM THOSE ROPES! ROBBIE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY DESPERATE! HE’S CLAWING AT THE CANVAS, HOPING TO GOD HE CAN MAKE IT TO THE ROPES! INCHING HIS WAY FORWARD! DANIELS PULLS EVEN FURTHER BACK!!

Cherish: DANIELS HAS PUT IT ALL ON THE LINE AND MORE! THE FIRE IN HIS EYES SAYS IT ALL! HE WANTS TO END IT HERE!! ROBBIE’S REACHING OUT!! HE NEEDS IT! ROBBIE GRABS AT THE BOTTOM ROPE!! HE’S GOT TWO FINGERTIPS ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!! HE’S CLUTCHING IT NOW, PULLING HIMSELF FORWARD!

Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!

Pierre: ROBBIE PULLS HIMSELF OUT OF THE HOLD AND TO THE OUTSIDE, BUT DANIELS ISN’T LETTING GO ALL THE WAY! HE’S STILL HANGING ON AS HE RIPS A STRAP OF ROBBIE’S SINGLET AS ROBBIE DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE!! I’ve never seen such an intimidated look in Robbie’s eyes before! He’s still feeling the effects of reliving that moment from Pain For Pride 7, if only for a moment! And after all the damage he just took, he’s gotta be panicking! LOOK OUT!! SUICIDE DIVE!!! BRIAN DANIELS OUT OF NOWHERE WITH ANOTHER SUICIDE DIVE!! HE’S BACK UP, PULLING ROBBIE UP, STILL DETERMINED TO FINISH THIS! Unbelievable endurance from this man! Daniels just will not give up! Not for a second! Not when he knows he’s so close to finishing it!

Cherish: Daniels sends Robbie back into the ring before climbing up to the apron! He climbs to the top turnbuckle! We know what’s coming! Robbie struggles, barely getting on his feet as he turns around! DANIELS LEAPS!! FRONT MISSILE DROPKICK!!!

Pierre: ROBBIE CATCHES DANIELS ON HIS SHOUDLERS WITH A HIGH SPEED RELEASE POWERBOMB!!! ROBBIE ISN’T DONE YET AS HE GRABS THAT INJURED RIGHT LEG OF DANIELS!! HE’S LOOKING FOR A FIGURE-FOUR!! DANIELS IS FIGHTING IT! HE WON’T LET IT HAPPEN! HE KICKS ROBBIE OFF AS HE DROPS DOWN TO THE CANVAS!

Cherish: NO–ROBBIE’S BACK UP, STILL CLUTCHING THE FOOT OF DANIELS!! HE ROLLS DANIELS OVER!! ANKLE LOCK!!! ROBBIE’S GOT AN ANKLE LOCK IN ON THAT INJURED LEG!! DANIELS IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO ESCAPE IT! IF ROBBIE CAN GET THE GRAPEVINE IN TO HYPEREXTEND THAT LEG, THIS COULD BE OVER! ROBBIE V JUST VIOLENTLY TWISTING AND CRANKING AT THAT ANKLE AS DANIELS WRITHES IN PAIN!! HE’S HOPING TO GET TO THOSE ROPES! ROBBIE CONTINUES TO TORTURE DANIELS IN THIS HOLD, REFUSING TO LET UP! DANIELS REACHES OUT! COME ON! HE’S GOT THE ROPES!!

Pierre: ROBBIE PULLS HIM AWAY FROM THE ROPES IMMEDIATELY!! THERE’S NOTHING DANIELS CAN DO!! DANIELS IS UP ON ONE FOOT, HOBBLING, LOOKING FOR ANYTHING TO SAVE HIM! ROBBIE PULLS HIM IN! LEG-TRAP SUPLEX CONNECTS!!! Daniels may not be stuck in that hold any longer, but he’s still in just as much trouble! Robbie sits up, still favoring that shoulder! He knows he’s gotta fight through the pain! He’s got no choice! He turns his attention back to Daniels, rising back up… Robbie with a stomp to that injured left leg of Daniels! Another stomp! Another! Robbie pulls Brian up… He backs him into the nearest corner… AND A BIG IRISH WHIP!

Cherish: DANIELS COLLAPSES IMMEDIATELY AS HIS LEG GIVES OUT! He can’t keep going! The Referee is trying to check on him! I think Robbie realizes the end is nigh for this man, Brian Daniels! Daniels clutches his leg, visibly in incredible pain! He’s telling the Ref he can keep going, but I’m not so sure! Robbie has done absolutely everything to dissect that leg! And Robbie now… Robbie with a familiar look in his eyes! He backs into the corner! Daniels clutches the shirt of the Official, still refusing to heed his warnings! He wants to keep going as he uses the Referee to help him up! HE’S UP AS HE PUSHES THE REF AWAY! ROBBIE CHARGES IN!! CONCUSSION!!!!

Pierre: DANIELS TELEGRAPHS IT?! HE DUCKS THE CONCUSSION AS A STUNNED ROBBIE TURNS AROUND! HIGH KICK TO THE SKULL FROM DANIELS OUT OF NOWHERE!!! ROBBIE DROPS TO HIS KNEES, DAZED AND SHOCKED!! CAUSTIC ECHO!!!!!! A CAUSTIC ECHO CONNECTS TO A KNEELING ROBBIE V AS DANIELS DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER!!!

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

Cherish: ROBBIE WITH A SHOULDER UP! HE’S STILL IN THIS! Daniels thought he had it there! He can’t do anything but keep going! He pushes himself back to his feet, trying to think of what else he can do to put this man away! He’s done everything! Everything in his power! What else is there?! Daniels now… He’s got something in mind as he stumbles over to the nearest corner! Filled with determination, Daniels wants to finish this! HE’S CLIMBING UP THERE ONCE MORE! DANIELS STANDS ON THAT TOP TURNBUCKLE AND… MIMICKING ROBBIE?!

Daniels (no mic): ROB! BIE!…. V!

Pierre: FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH?!!!!

Cherish: ROBBIE ROLLS AWAY BEFORE DANIELS CAN GO FOR IT! ROBBIE KNOWS IT’S COMING! HE REFUSES TO LET IT HAPPEN! Robbie’s desperate here! He struggles to get up, hoping for anything to save him! Daniels drops down to the apron… What’s he thinking?! Robbie’s too far away!

Pierre: DANIELS LEAPS TO THE TOP ROPE!! SINGLE-LEG DROPKICK ACROSS THE DAMN RING CONNECTS INTO THE BACK OF ROBBIE!!! THE SHEER FORCE OF IT SENDS ROBBIE CRASHING THROUGH THE ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE!!

THAT VOLTAGE ANNOUNCE TABLE IMPLODES IMMEDIATELY AS THE BODY OF BRIAN DANIELS COMES CRASHING THROUGH IT!! DANIELS IS MOTIONLESS! ROBBIE DROPS TO HIS KNEES, SURPRISED HE MANAGED TO STOP DANIELS’ MOMENTUM DEAD IN ITS TRACKS! The Referee rushes back out here once again, trying to get a response out of Daniels! I’m not so sure how much like he’ll have there! Let’s take a look at this again!

(A slow-motion replay is shown of Robbie V catching Brian Daniels on his shoulders and powerbombing him through the nearby Announce table)

Cherish: I’m genuinely in awe at what these two men have put one another through, Pierre! I’m convinced it’s not gonna end until one literally cannot move, and we may be what we’re seeing right now! Hold on! Robbie’s back up as he pushes the Referee out of the way! Daniels barely stirring before Robbie grabs a hold of him! He’s having a hard time trying to pull Daniels up… Robbie drops down… HE’S GOT DANIELS IN A FIREMAN’S CARRY!

Pierre: DANIELS LETS GO?! DANIELS BREAKS THE SUBMISSION! I think his body just gave out! He couldn’t keep it going as Robbie rolls out of Daniels’ grasp! Both of these men look absolutely exhausted! Daniels is stirring once more with a glazed over look in his eyes! He looks like he doesn’t have much left in him to keep going, but he’s moving! As long as he keeps moving, he still has a chance! Daniels rolls out to the apron as both men clutch the nearby ropes, pulling themselves up… Robbie makes it to his feet first as he sees Daniels out on the apron! HE CHARGES AHEAD!

(Robbie V slowly rises to his knees, laughing)

Cherish: He’s LAUGHING?! This guy has snapped! He’s lost it! Robbie may have just brutally injured a man he considers his friend, and he’s LAUGHING about it?! I don’t know what to say, Pierre!

(A slow-motion replay is shown of Robbie V headbutting Brian Daniels in the face after the missed Caustic Echo)

Pierre: We’ve seen this before, but not quite like this! Robbie may have just gone off the deep end! He suckered Daniels into that headbutt, and now he’s laughing like a madman over it! Robbie’s back on his feet! He pushes the Referee aside as he looks down at his fallen opponent… Robbie now… Reaching down… HE CLUTCHES THE WRIST OF DANIELS! I THINK WE KNOW WHAT’S COMING! WE’VE SEEN THIS BEFORE! ROBBIE’S DRAGGING DANIELS UP BY HIS WRIST, INTENT ON FINISHING THIS! DANIELS IS A BLOODY MESS! HE LOOKS TO BE GOING IN AND OUT OF CONSCIOUSNESS! HE’S GOT DANIELS UP!

(Brian Daniels barely gets a shoulder up as the crowd at MetLife Stadium erupts with deafening cheers)

Cherish: YOU’RE KIDDING ME! YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! HOW?! HOW DID HE… I’M IN DISBELIEF!! BRIAN DANIELS–NOBODY HAS EVER KICKED OUT OF KING’S LANDING!! ROBBIE V IS IN ABSOLUTE SHOCK! HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! HE THOUGHT HE HAD IT! I THOUGHT HE HAD IT! EVERYONE WATCHING THOUGHT IT WAS OVER! INHUMAN RESILIENCE FROM THIS MAN, BRIAN DANIELS! I CAN’T EVEN PUT IT INTO WORDS! SOMETHING KEEPS HIM GOING WELL BEYOND WHERE HE SHOULD HAVE STOPPED! I DON’T THINK ANY OF US CAN FULLY UNDERSTAND IT!

(Robbie V backs into a nearby corner, visibly frustrated with tears in his eyes)

Pierre: Unbelievable, Cherish! I can’t even describe it! The look on Robbie’s face says it all! He genuinely doesn’t know what else to do! That was it for him!

Cherish: Robbie with an absolute look of HATE in his eyes as he exits the corner… Robbie makes his way over to a still downed Daniels… Extending a hand? Robbie reaches a hand out for his fallen opponent! His former partner! The man he mentored! Daniels reaches out… ROBBIE CLUTCHES THE WRIST! HE STOMPS DOWN INTO THE FACE OF DANIELS!!! ROBBIE REPEATEDLY STOMPING INTO THE FACE OF BRIAN DANIELS, MERCILESSLY LAYING INTO HIM!! HE DRAGS DANIELS UP, LOOKING FOR ANOTHER–

Pierre: DANIELS PULLS HIM IN?!! TRIANGLE CHOKE!!!! BRIAN DANIELS SOMEHOW PULLS ROBBIE DOWN INTO A TRIANGLE CHOKE!! ROBBIE CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! DANIELS, WITH EVERYTHING LEFT IN HIM, TRIES TO CHOKE ROBBIE OUT!! ROBBIE’S FADING!! DANIELS LETS GO, LOOKING FOR THE FOURTH SEAL!!!! HE’S GOT IT!! NO–ROBBIE ROLLS OUT!!

Cherish: DANIELS STILL HAS THE WRIST CLUTCHED!! HE PULLS ROBBIE BACK INTO HIM, WRESTLING HIM TO THE CANVAS!! ROBBIE CAN’T GET HIM OFF!! DANIELS WON’T STOP!! HE WON’T STOP UNTIL HE’S FINISHED THIS!!

ROBBIE NOW–HE’S PLEADING WITH DANIELS!! HE’S BEGGING HIM TO LET GO?!!

Pierre: DANIELS LOOSENS UP THE HOLD… ROBBIE ESCAPES AS HE GOES FOR THE ROPES!!

Pierre: DANIELS STOPS HIM DEAD IN HIS TRACKS AS HE DRIVES AN ELBOW INTO THE SKULL OF ROBBIE! ANOTHER ELBOW! ANOTHER! ANOTHER!! HE PULLS ROBBIE BACK AND LOCKS THE FOURTH SEAL BACK IN!!!! ROBBIE’S FIGHTING IT WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS LEFT IN HIS BODY!! HE DOESN’T WANT TO END HIS CAREER LIKE THIS! HE DOESN’T WANT THIS TO BE THE HILL HE DIES ON!! ROBBIE’S FORCING HIMSELF AND DANIELS OVER… TRYING TO ROLL THEM BACK TO GET DANIELS’ SHOULDERS ON THE CANVAS FOR A PIN!! DANIELS WON’T LET IT HAPPEN!

Cherish: THE REFEREE IMMEDIATELY RAISES THE HAND OF ROBBIE… AND IT DROPS TO THE CANVAS!

IT’S NOT HAPPENING!! HE TAPS!!!!!!! ROBBIE V TAPS OUT!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(Brian Daniels immediately lets go of the Fourth Seal and lies motionless on the canvas with Robbie V as the Referee checks on both men, calling for medical attention)

Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS CONTEST BY SUBMISSION…… BRIAN DAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEELLLLLSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

(“Paint It Black” by Ramin Djawadi plays all throughout MetLife Stadium)

Pierre: I can’t believe it, Cherish! I absolutely cannot believe it! What a match! What an incredible match between these two men! They literally gave it everything they had! Everything their bodies would allow! Holy moly what a match!

Cherish: I can’t even put into words what an emotional rollercoaster that was for me, Pierre! It has all finally come to an end, and one man has managed to walk out of Pain For Pride X here in MetLife Stadium with the right to call himself the winner, and that man is Brian Daniels!

Pierre: We knew this was going to be a match for the ages, but I never expected them to go this far! Not in the slightest! It breaks my heart to know this is the last time we will ever see these two men – these two warriors – compete inside an EAW ring! They proved together beyond a shadow of a doubt why they are two of the absolute best to have ever stepped foot in this company!

(Medical Technicians attempt to check on Brian Daniels, only for him to push them away)

Cherish: Look at this guy! He’s an absolute mess! His nose has to be broken! I can’t even begin to imagine how much pain his body is in, but he’s still too proud to let them take him out of here on a stretcher!

Pierre: In a weird way, I understand it. Brian Daniels spent his entire career waiting for this moment, and he just achieved it in THE most grueling match he’s ever competed in, so I can’t say I blame him wanting to walk out of here on his own two feet, regardless of what condition he’s in!

(Highlights from the match are shown, featuring Robbie V hitting a low dropkick off the apron and through the barricade, Brian Daniels’ springboard somersault plancha onto Robbie in the crowd, Robbie V powerbombing Brian Daniels through an announce table, Robbie V headbutting Brian Daniels in the face, and Robbie V tapping out to the Fourth Seal)

Cherish: Absolute carnage these two men just delivered in that ring, and I’m certain it’s exactly everything they hoped for.

Pierre: Hold on now! Brian Daniels pushes the medical technicians away from Robbie too! He’s pulling Robbie up! Robbie looks just as out of it as Brian does as both men are on their feet, locking eyes!

(Robbie and Brian exchange inaudible words with one another before Brian extends a hand to Robbie)

Cherish: A showing of respect here from Brian Daniels! Robbie cautiously accepts is as the two men shake hands! A great moment between the two former partners!

Pierre: Hold on! Brian attempts to walk away, but Robbie’s not letting go! ROBBIE PULLS BRIAN BACK!

(Robbie V and Brian Daniels hug for a few moments as fireworks goes off all around MetLife Stadium. Robbie and Brian let go and exchange more words with smiles on their faces before Robbie pats Brian on the shoulder and talks his leave, still visibly in pain as he exits the ring)

Cherish: Now that’s what I like to see! It may be under very strange circumstances after these two just beat the absolute HELL out of one another, but a powerful moment between two friends! They went out exactly how they wanted, and I don’t think either one regrets it!

(Robbie makes his way back up the ramp, bowing towards Brian Daniels in the ring and nodding as he takes his leave)

Crowd: PLEASE DON’T GO! PLEASE DON’T GO! PLEASE DON’T GO!

Pierre: What a night it’s been, Cherish. What an incredible night. I wish it would never end. But if this is how it ends, I suppose I can’t complain too much. There was no gold on the line here, or two sworn enemies squaring off. These two men gave up everything they had for this match, and they left it all out there in the ring.

Cherish: I couldn’t agree more! These two nights are something I’ll never forget! We watched Legends return, Champions crowned, and careers come to an end, but more importantly, we saw the best wrestling on the planet! This show has lived up to its expectations in every way for me! It’s been a great 10 years for EAW!

Pierre: And here’s to 10 years more! Thank you to every single person who helped make this possible! Thank you to the fans that have supported us for an entire decade! Without you, there would be no EAW! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts! We hope we gave you something special tonight, and we hope to do it again, and again, and again! Thank you for joining us for an incredible, beautiful Pain For Pride X! From MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, I’m Pierre McGuire, signing off for Cherish, Stew-O, WWEFan, Jake Mercer, StarrStan, Kawajai, and SG1 – thank you and goodnight from Pain For Pride X!

(Robbie V is shown clapping from the stage while a bloodied and battered Brian Daniels looks around for one final time as the fans throw black streamers into the ring with fireworks continuing to go off while the camera slowly fades to black)
