(The camera fades to an empty Madison Square Garden, as a Hell in a Cell descends onto the ring…)
Narrator: Morning has broken, and today the arrows of war set as the collision course.
(The High Rollerz are seen walking down the ramp, looking at Nobi and Lioncross, standing with Lyuncrust inside of the ring, then their image fades…)
Narrator: And the battle cries commence, echoing in the distance.
(Multiple battle royal participants are are seen shaking the cell structure, trying to get in, before their image fades…)
Narrator: Apprehension and doubt flows through the veins of the combatants But the deafening beat remains.
(Tiberius Jones is seen seated on top of the Hell in a Cell on his throne…)
Narrator: For the cost of war – will always remain unforgiving, with no trace of discrimination.
(Then The Pizza Boy is seen climbing up that same very Hell in a Cell after Tiberius Jones, before that image fades…)
Narrator: Some that roam these halls have been shaped with the hands of legacy.
(Robbie V is seen within the ring, sitting in the wheelchair, then Jaywalker approaches him from the corner, and Robbie V proceeds to stand up and stare Jaywalker down, as the clip fades)
Narrator: Others, forged in the fires and tribulations of struggle.
(Half of Matt Ryder’s face is seen facing the camera, as he stares down…)
Narrator: Battle-tested in the shadows of greatness.
(… Rex McAllister, who’s preparing to march toward Ryder, but then is interrupted by…)
Narrator: But the unknown future rolls in.
(Nico Borg who charges down the middle of the two, with his National Elite Championship, before fading away…)
Narrator: These are uncharted waters, territory of no domain. Sense of hope is usurped by the necessity of urgency.
(The Heart Break Boy is then seen walking onto the stage, boos can be heard, but no fans are around…)
Narrator: For man is only man. At the expense of physical nature – destined to succumb to the will of his surroundings.
(And then Devan Dubian walks up from behind him, The Heart Break Boy turns around as if he’s going for a Goldprint, and Dubian appears like he’s going for a Bleeding Edge, but their image fades…)
(The camera then shows Ryan Marx opening the Hell in a Cell’s door, but only for Cody Marshall to rush out with an American Flag, and their image fades…)

Narrator: IN A CELL…
(Brian Daniels and Lannister near each other in a hurry, fists held out in a battle stance…)
Narrator: Serves as today….
(Lannister shouts loudly, Brian Daniels shakes his head, and the two collide…)
Narrator: …Judgement Day!
(As their image fades, the camera cuts to black…)
Narrator: Elite Answers Wrestling presents… REASONABLE DOUBT!
(The camera pans inside the sold out Madison Square Garden, where thousands of fans are on their feet cheering, pyrotechnics explode on the stage, around the ring, and on the ramp, before panning down to Cherish and Pierre McGuire on the commentating table)
Cherish: WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN TO THE SHOWDOWN EXCLUSIVE… REASONABLE DOUBT: JUDGMENT DAY! I’M JOINED BY PIERRE MCGUIRE AND WE’RE READY FOR SUCH AN INSANE NIGHT!
Pierre: THERE’S SO MUCH THAT’S GOING TO GO DOWN TONIGHT! I DON’T KNOW HOW THIS ARENA HAS PREPARED THEMSELVES, BUT THEY BEST BE READY… REASONABLE DOUBT IS SOMETHING NOBODY WANTS TO MISS!!!… NOW LET’S GET THIS SHOW ON A ROLL!
(Video package plays recapping the 7 ½ year feud between Robbie V and Jaywalker)
(The camera transitions back to Madison Square Garden as the sold out crowd stomps their feet in unison in anticipation)
Cherish: What an incredible way to kick off this show, Pierre. Can you feel the electricity in the air right now?
Pierre: Without a doubt! We’re about to go to war, and it won’t be the first time tonight, I’m sure!
(The lights in Madison Square Garden go out as a spotlight appears on the Hell In A Cell structure, descending while ominous music plays)
Cherish: They’ve battled upon cities, countries, and continents alike, and tonight – this may be the last time we ever see them face to face. A rivalry unlike any other, one that’s stretched on for nearly a decade!
Pierre: It’s a match both men need to win, and one nobody can afford to lose. I can’t even begin to imagine what these two are willing to do to one another.
(The Hell In A Cell structure finally reaches the ground as the lights in the arena come back on. The crowd cheers as a few moments of silence pass)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall….
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Announcer: AND IT IS A HELL IN A CELL MAAATTTCCCHH!!!
(The crowd erupts with cheers)
Announcer: Introducing the first competitor…
( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbrZkzrJzHM plays all throughout Madison Square Garden)
Pierre: HERE HE COMES! THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET!
(Robbie V makes his way out to the stage in a red and black gi, red and black attire, and a facemask resembling the facepaint of “The Legendary” Sekaiichi as he takes it off to reveal a determined expression upon his face)
Announcer: First, making his way towards the ring…. From Las Vegas, Nevada!…. He weighed in tonight at 237 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE LEGENDARY SEKAIICHI”…. ROB! BIE!! V!!!….
Pierre: What a response from this crowd here in New York City! I never thought we’d see this day come! I really didn’t! Robbie V is back, and despite everything he’s gone through, he looks just as good as he ever has! Unbelievable!
Cherish: He may look good, but make no mistake, he hasn’t spent three years training for anything like this match. He’s at a very clear disadvantage, but nonetheless, he DOES look like he stands a chance. I certainly hope so.
(Robbie takes off his gi and steps inside the Cell, rolling into the ring and taking in the roaring New York Crowd before “Penance” fades out. Robbie warms up in a nearby corner of the ring as the sound of Owls can be heard throughout Madison Square Garden while the lights go dark)
Announcer: And his opponent…
(A spotlight appears upon the stage as the silhouette of Jaywalker can be seen rising up upon a platform with his arms folded and back turned. After the platform stops, raised just above the stage, Jaywalker slowly turns his head towards Robbie with a look of disgust. Jaywalker turns to towards the ring and steps off the platform, dressed in a white and blue diamond-encrusted robe as the lights return and “Play For Keeps” by BoB plays all throughout the arena)
Announcer: Making his way towards the ring… From Scarborough, Canada!…. Weighing in at 250 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE TRAILBLAZER”…. JAAAAAYYYYYYYWWWWWAAALLLLLKKKEEEERRRRR!!!….
Pierre: A very eccentric entrance from the one and only Jaywalker as usual, but you can just see it in his eyes – none of this pageantry means nearly as much as beating that man, Robbie V. He’s got his eyes locked on his opponent as Robbie returns the favor, looking on from the ring.
(Jaywalker keeps his eyes on Robbie as he takes off his robe and enters the Cell. The Referee outside the Cell locks it up as Jaywalker slowly enters the ring to join Robbie)
Cherish: He’s one of – no – THE most ruthless man this company has ever seen, and to him, Robbie V represents everything he isn’t. There’s no doubt in my mind he intends to get rid of Robbie once and for all tonight after everything he’s said, and Hell, everything he’s done for as long as we’ve known him.
(“Play For Keeps” fades out as Jaywalker and Robbie V stand across the ring from one another. After several moments of the staring down and the crowd cheering them both on, the Referee calls for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre: The bell has rung and our Reasonable Doubt opening contest and one of two huge main event contests is OFFICIALLY underway as both Robbie V and Jaywalker circle the ring… I can’t even begin to wonder what could be racing through both individual’s minds here as they each look for a first move to make. Robbie obviously has a lot of reason to be cautious about whatever he does, because if Jaywalker smells blood in the water for even a moment, it could be all over.
Cherish: You could even say the same for Jaywalker – he knows not to underestimate Robbie. One wrong move or even underestimating his opponent and this could completely turn around… Is that a hint of a smile on Robbie’s face?
Pierre: Both men go straight in for an aggressive collar and elbow tie up in the center of the ring! These two men latched onto one another like two crocodiles at each other’s throats! Both competitors jocking for position! Robbie seems to be faltering! Jaywalker overpowers his opponent as he sends Robbie down to the canvas, but Robbie rolls right back up to his feet! Jaywalker with a smirk on his face as he and Robbie stare down once more… Robbie doesn’t look like he’s gonna let that get to him as he looks to get back into this as they go in for another collar and elbow tie up! Robbie goes right under it! He catches Jaywalker from behind with a waist lock! Jay now blocking the potential German Suplex attempt! He’s got his feet firmly planted! An elbow comes flying back into the skull of Robbie! Jaywalker with a standing switch! HE OVERPOWERS ROBBIE! Robbie comes slamming down hard on the canvas face-first as Jaywalker looks to follow up! JAYWALKER WRAPS AN ARM AROUND THE THROAT OF ROBBIE, POSSIBLY LOOKING FOR A BULLY CHOKE!
Cherish: Robbie’s quick enough to slip out of it before it’s entirely locked in and roll out of Jaywalker’s grasp! Both men race back to their feet! They’re up as Robbie charges in! He’s caught with a stiff knee to the mid-section from Jaywalker! Jaywalker grabs a hold of Robbie, pulling him in for another heinous knee into the gut! A LOUD CLOSED-FIST SHOT TO THE FACE OF ROBBIE! ANOTHER HARD SHOT! Robbie’s dazed as Jaywalker grabs a hold of him, sending him into the ropes with an Irish whip! Jaywalker’s trailing after him! And in comes another agonizing knee to the body of Robbie against those ropes!
Pierre: I think this is exactly what we were all worried about – Jaywalker’s got the clear advantage over Robbie, and he knows it. Robbie can’t seem to get any offense in just yet… Jaywalker now, toying with his opponent as he’s got Robbie against the ropes, at his disposal… And Jaywalker with a LOUD knife-edge chop off the chest of Robbie! Another knife-edge chop echoes throughout Madison Square Garden as these worried New York fans cheer Robbie on! AND JAYWALKER NOW KEEPS ROBBIE PRESSED AGAINST THOSE ROPES AS HE JUST UNLOADS WITH RAPID-FIRE SHOTS! Jaywalker showing absolutely no regard for his opponent! He’s laying into Robbie! HE CAPS IT OFF WITH A CLOSE-RANGE LARIAT THAT SENDS ROBBIE OVER AND TO THE OUTSIDE! Hold on! Robbie doesn’t allow himself to go dropping entirely out! He’s got the ropes as he catches himself on the apron! Jaywalker looks more amused than anything…
Cherish: I’m not liking this look of this at all, Pierre… Jaywalker with a delighted look on his face as Robbie struggles to pull himself up… JAYWALKER PICKS UP MOMENTUM! A BIG BOOT CONNECTS TO ROBBIE AS HE’S SENT OFF THE APRON AND CRASHING INTO THE CELL WALL! Jaywalker’s enjoying every moment of this as he rolls to the outside, gazing down at his fallen prey… Robbie clutches the wall of the Cell, trying to use it to aid him, but Jaywalker’s there to drag him up… JAYWALKER DRIVES THE FACE OF ROBBIE INTO THE CELL WALL! HE SLAMS ROBBIE’S FACE INTO THE WALL A SECOND TIME! JAYWALKER JUST TORTURING ROBBIE AS HE GRINDS ROBBIE’S FACE AGAINST THAT STEEL MESH!! HE’S STILL NOT DONE AS HE SENDS ROBBIE OFF WITH A BIG IRISH WHIP! ROBBIE GOES CRASHING HARD INTO THE CELL WALL NEAR THE CORNER OF THIS DEMONIC STRUCTURE!
Pierre: Robbie has been entirely at the mercy of his opponent so far! He needs something! Anything! Some sort of saving grace here! Jaywalker has been absolutely unrelenting, and he can practically do as he pleases with virtually no rules to stop him! He casually makes his way over to Robbie, clutching him by the hair as he drags him up… Jaywalker wraps a hand around Robbie’s throat, choking the life out of him! I’ve never seen Jaywalker so damn happy to hurt someone! Not like this! HE PICKS ROBBIE UP IN A SPINEBUSTER POSITION AND DRIVES HIM SPINE-FIRST INTO THE CELL WALL! HE IMMEDIATELY TURNS AND DRIVES ROBBIE INTO THE RINGPOST!! Robbie drops to his knees in agony, but Jaywalker isn’t letting it end there as he pulls him right back up! He sends Robbie rolling back into the ring! Jaywalker… Oh no… Jaywalker searching underneath the ring now! He drags out a steel chair! There’s a table! Jaywalker’s got a trashcan filled with several weapons as he dumps it out there on the mat! Jaywalker reaches down… Is that a pair of handcuffs?! No, come on!
Cherish: I hate it as much as you do, Pierre, but we know exactly what Jaywalker’s got in mind… Jaywalker rolls back into the ring as Robbie desperately attempts to climb back to his feet… Jaywalker with those handcuffs as he grabs a hold of Robbie! Jaywalker handcuffs his opponent!
Pierre: NO–ROBBIE FIRES AT JAYWALKER WITH A LOUD ELBOW TO THE SKULL! I THINK THAT MAY HAVE CAUGHT JAYWALKER IN THE TEMPLE! HE’S LOOKING DAZED AS ROBBIE THROWS ANOTHER ELBOW INTO THE FACE OF JAYWALKER! A THIRD ELBOW CONNECTS AS ROBBIE ATTEMPTS TO ESCAPE THE GRIP OF JAYWALKER BEFORE HE CAN HANDCUFF HIM! A furious Jaywalker drags Robbie back towards him! Jaywalker shakes out the cobwebs as he lays into Robbie once more! He’s got Robbie on his knees, at his mercy here! Jaywalker with crossface blows from behind to Robbie now, just mercilessly laying into him! He drags Robbie up! JAYWALKER HITS THE ROPES, LOOKING TO PUT HIS OPPONENT DOWN!! THE TRANSCENSION!!!! NO–THE LARIAT FROM BEHIND IS NO GOOD AS ROBBIE DUCKS! HE PULLS JAYWALKER IN JUST AS IT MISSES! BACKDROP DRIVER!! A DEVASTATING BACKDROP DRIVER SENDS JAYWALKER LANDING RIGHT ON THE BACK OF HIS SKULL!!
Cherish: I can’t believe it! Robbie is still alive in this! He’s got a fighting chance! All he has to do is keep the momentum in his favor, if his body will last long enough after all the damage he’s taken! Robbie seems to have found his second wind here as he starts forcing himself to get up! Jaywalker knows he needs to get back in this! He can’t let control slip from his grasp, but it’s slipping quickly! JAYWALKER REACHES FOR THOSE HANDCUFFS! ROBBIE’S TO HIS FEET AS HE DROPS A STOMP DOWN ON THE HAND OF JAYWALKER BEFORE HE CAN GET THE HANDCUFFS! The anguish on the face of Jaywalker as he realizes Robbie just stole control of this bout! Jaywalker’s on his knees as Robbie crushes his hand with a boot! ROBBIE LETS GO AND IMMEDIATELY CONNECTS WITH A LOUD KICK OFF THE STERNUM OF JAYWALKER! Robbie starts to falter, still struggling with all the damage he took here, but he knows he’s gotta keep it together if he has any hope of winning this! ANOTHER KICK SWINGS INTO THE BODY OF JAYWALKER! A THIRD LOUD KICK BOUNCES OFF THE STERNUM OF JAYWALKER! ROBBIE V TAKING A PAGE FROM BRIAN DANIELS’ BOOK HERE AS HE UNLOADS WITH THESE HEINOUS KICKS TO THE BODY OF HIS OPPONENT AS THIS CROWD CHEERS ON EACH ONE!!
Pierre: Robbie puts a stop to it as he backs up! HE GRABS THE HANDCUFFS?! ROBBIE IMMEDIATELY HANDCUFFS THE RIGHT HAND OF JAYWALKER! JAYWALKER WITH A SHOT TO THE FACE OF ROBBIE FOR HIS TROUBLES! A SECOND HARD HIT CONNECTS! Robbie swings with another kick to put Jaywalker down, but it’s caught! Jaywalker rises back to his feet with the foot of Robbie on his grasp! ROBBIE SWINGS WITH A KICK USING HIS FREE LEG! Jaywalker has it scouted as he moves out of the way, keeping the foot of Robbie in his grasp! ROBBIE SWINGS BACK AROUND WITH A HEEL KICK AS IT ROCKS JAYWALKER IN THE JAW! ROBBIE’S DOWN AS JAYWALKER GOES STUMBLING BACKWARDS INTO THE ROPES! I can’t tell if there’s more pain or loathing on the face of Jaywalker as he uses the ropes as a crutch!
Cherish: I think he was expecting this to go more smoothly for him after being so firmly in control in the early going! He needs to get back on the attack as soon as possible! Jaywalker–
Pierre: ROBBIE WITH A ROLLING KIP UP–INTO A FLYING FOREARM AS HE SENDS HIMSELF AND JAYWALKER OVER THE ROPES AND CRASHING STRAIGHT TO THE OUTSIDE?!!! WHERE ON EARTH DID HE PULL THAT OUT?! Both men now racing to get back to their feet, but both in a great deal of pain as they do it! Robbie’s got the Cell to help him up while Jaywalker clutches the ring apron… Both men up on their feet! Jaywalker rushes in! Nobody’s home as Robbie ducks the incoming forearm attempt! Jaywalker quickly turns around to eat a kick to the chest! Robbie grabs a hold of Jaywalker by the head and sends him slamming hard with the back of his head bouncing off the Cell wall! Robbie’s got Jaywalker trapped against the wall! A KICK TO THE BODY OF JAYWALKER! ANOTHER! A THIRD! A FOURTH! ROBBIE UNLOADING WITH RAPID KICKS INTO HIS OPPONENT WITHOUT MERCY! HE GRABS THE OTHER END OF THOSE HANDCUFFS HE ATTACHED TO JAYWALKER! MY GOD – HE HANDCUFFS JAYWALKER TO THE CELL WALL?! HE JUST HANDCUFFED JAYWALKER TO THE STEEL MESH!
Cherish: And he’s not letting up on the attack after doing so! Robbie lays into Jaywalker with kicks and forearms galore! Jaywalker literally cannot go anywhere! He’s cuffed to the Cell wall as Robbie relentlessly fires away! Robbie finally puts a stop to the attack as he rolls back into the ring! This New York crowd is on their feet for this man! Robbie somehow, someway has turned this contest around! He’s miraculously turned the tables on his sadistic opponent and he knows it as he gets to his feet! Robbie turns his focus back towards a handcuffed Jaywalker! HE’S GOT A FAMILIAR LOOK ON HIS FACE AS ROBBIE CHARGES INTO THE ROPES! HE COMES BACK WITH MOMENTUM!! LOOK OUT! SUICIDE DIVE!!! A MASSIVE SUICIDE DIVE CONNECTS INTO THE HANDCUFFED JAYWALKER!!
Pierre: And look at this! Robbie’s not done! He’s not done yet as he rolls back into the ring! HE CHARGES INTO THE ROPES ONCE MORE! JAYWALKER’S GOT NOWHERE TO RUN AS ROBBIE BARRELS TOWARDS HIM!! A SECOND DEVASTATING SUICIDE DIVE RIGHT INTO THE DEFENSELESS JAYWALKER!!! UNBELIEVABLE! ROBBIE HAS JAYWALKER AT HIS MERCY AND HE’S MAKING USE OF EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF IT! Robbie’s back up, climbing the apron! He’s not stopping there – he looks to go up to the high rent district! Robbie climbs to the top turnbuckle as this sold out crowd is on their feet! Jaywalker’s too hurt to do anything, and couldn’t even if he was able to move! LOOK OUT!!
Cherish: FIVE-STAR FROGSPLASH!!!! A MODIFIED FIVE-STAR FROGSPLASH CONNECTS AS ROBBIE GOES SAILING THROUGH THE AIR AND CRASHING INTO A BARELY STANDING JAYWALKER WITH SUCH IMPACT AGAINST THE CELL WALL!! I THINK THE HANDCUFFS JUST SNAPPED FROM THAT MANEUVER!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!! An incredible contest this has been thus far! Robbie has been able to maintain control as he pulls himself back up to his feet here on the outside! He grabs a hold of Jaywalker, pulling him up and sending him rolling back into the ring! Robbie rolls back in after him! HE HOOKS THE LEG, HOPING TO END THIS!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!!!
Pierre: It’s not enough to put Jaywalker away as he kicks out at two! Robbie’s looking a little bit flustered after that, but you can tell he desperately wants to end this as soon as he can – he may be running on nothing but pure adrenaline by this point! Robbie’s got this crowd firmly at his back as he struggles to pull himself up! He’s got his eyes pointed back at the corner of the ring as he makes his way over there! ROBBIE LEAPS UP TO THE TOP ROPE AS THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET! HE’S PERCHED! ROBBIE LEAPS!! FIVE-STAR FROGSPLASH!!!!
Cherish: BUT NOBODY’S HOME AS JAYWALKER NARROWLY MANAGES TO ROLL HIMSELF OUT OF THE WAY!! ROBBIE COMES CRASHING DOWN HARD ON THE CANVAS, WRITHING IN PAIN! Both men are down! That may have been exactly what Jaywalker needed to take back control! Robbie’s favoring his ribs as he struggles to get back to the nearest corner of the ring… Jaywalker’s got the ropes to help him up… HE BURSTS FORWARD WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM! ROBBIE’S UP IN THE CORNER AS JAYWALKER COLLIDES WITH HIM FOR A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!! JAYWALKER’S BACK IN THIS! HE’S A PREDATOR BACK ON THE HUNT AS HE NAILS ROBBIE WITH A CORNER CLOTHESLINE NOW!

ROBBIE’S CAUGHT IN THAT TREE OF WOE AS JAYWALKER LAYS INTO HIM WITH VICIOUS STOMPS TO THE JAW! ROBBIE’S GOT NOWHERE TO GO AS JAYWALKER TORTURES HIM!! Jaywalker backs up with a look of malicious intent in his eyes… HE BURSTS FORWARD! A RUNNING KNEE CONNECTS STRAIGHT TO THE THROAT OF ROBBIE V!! ROBBIE DROPS DOWN FROM THE TREE OF WOE, GASPING FOR AIR!! Jaywalker isn’t letting it end there! He grabs the struggling Robbie and nails him with forearms into the throat! This guy is despicable! Just despicable! Robbie barely manages to force Jaywalker off of him as he continues to struggle for air! He clutches the ropes, forcing himself up!
Cherish: Jaywalker’s up as he rushes in with a boot into the skull of a damaged Robbie V! JAYWALKER WRAPS BOTH HANDS AROUND THE THROAT OF ROBBIE, CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF HIM AGAINST THE ROPES! He lets go, picking Robbie up in a gorilla press position! HE DROPS ROBBIE THROAT-FIRST ACROSS THE TOP ROPE!! Robbie clutches his throat, gasping for air! Jaywalker shows absolutely NO mercy! He goes out of his way to target the throat of Robbie, and out of what? Just disrespect?! He’s doing it for no other reason than to remind Robbie that he slit his throat years ago and that he’d happily do it again! He wants to assert his dominance over his opponent and he’s doing it effectively! The sadistic gleam in the eyes of Jaywalker says it all! He stalks a struggling Robbie from behind… HE PULLS ROBBIE UP! HE’S GOT HIM! THAT CROSSFACE CHICKENWING!! LOOKING TO LOCK IT IN AS HE WRAPS THE ARM AROUND THE DAMAGED THROAT OF ROBBIE!

ROBBIE LANDS DAMN-NEAR ON HIS HEAD FROM THAT! Jaywalker nowhere close to finishing off his opponent just yet as he drags Robbie up, navigating him over towards that pile of weapons he left laying there at ringside… Jaywalker sends Robbie face-first into the Cell wall! He’s got something big in mind as Jaywalker grabs that table, picking it up and setting it up there at ringside! I can’t even imagine what he thinks he’s gonna do with that!
Cherish: We’re about to find out as Jaywalker turns his attention back to Robbie, grabbing him by his hair, pulling him up! Jaywalker with a few choice words to Robbie… And a slap across the face of Robbie now! Absolutely no respect whatsoever from this man! He hates Robbie V to his very core!

It’s been three years since he last stepped into an EAW ring and there would be no bigger way to step back into one than beating the man that’s made his life a living Hell practically since the moment he signed his name on the dotted line to compete here! These two men have been a thorn in each other’s sides for years and years and Robbie seeks to put it to an end as he climbs to the top! HE’S PERCHED AS THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET!

HE’S GOT NOWHERE TO GO!! HE’S DESPERATELY CLAWING AT THE CANVAS, DESPERATELY SWINGING – NONE OF IT DOING HIM ANY GOOD HERE! HE MAY HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO TAP OUT!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!…….. TWO!!!!!!!!!!……….
Pierre: IT’S NO GOOD AS JAYWALKER KICKS OUT JUST BEFORE THREE! These two men will continue! Robbie climbs back to his feet, using the ropes to aid him as a furious, damaged Jaywalker rises back up! He’s got Robbie locked in his sights! JAYWALKER SPRINGS TO HIS FEET, BARRELING TOWARDS HIS OPPONENT WITH MOMENTUM AT HIS BACK!!
Cherish: BACK BODY DROP!!!!

IT’S A MIRACLE HE’S LASTED THIS LONG! I wasn’t expecting a performance like this, but he’s gone beyond all of his limits! He’s got Jaywalker in his sights! He may be looking to finish this once and for all! ROBBIE CHARGES INTO THE ROPES! HE ROLLS! ROBBIE LEAPS THE TOP ROPE FOR A MASSIVE ROLLING THUNDER TO THE OUTSIDE ONTO JAYWALKER!!! HE’S STILL GOING! HE’S STILL ALIVE AND KICKING AS ROBBIE RISES BACK UP WITH JAYWALKER IN HIS GRASP! HE SENDS JAYWALKER ROLLING BACK INTO THE RING! HE WANTS TO FINISH THIS! SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!…….. TWO!!!!!!!!!!………. THREE!!!
Pierre: MY GOD – JAYWALKER WITH A SHOULDER UP!!! JAYWALKER KICKS OUT! THIS CROWD IS IN DISBELIEF AND SO AM I! ROBBIE THOUGHT THAT WAS THREE! HE HOPED THAT WAS IT! WHAT ELSE DOES HE HAVE TO DO TO PUT JAYWALKER AWAY?! Robbie knows he has to keep going! He has to! If he wants to win this, he has to keep going! He’s got no other choice as he climbs back to his feet, limping back to the corner! Is he looking for another? ROBBIE LEAPS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! Hold on! Jaywalker rolls away this time, dropping to the outside! Probably a smart strategy on his part!
Cherish: Hold on, Pierre… I don’t think that’s stopping Robbie! Jaywalker’s still in his sights! He’s not giving up! ROBBIE LEAPS AT JAYWALKER! FIVE-STAR FROGSPLASH!!!!
Pierre: JAYWALKER MEETS IT WITH A CHAIR SHOT?!!! JAYWALKER NAILED THE INCOMING ROBBIE V WITH A CHAIRSHOT OUT OF NOWHERE!! DID HE JUST PULL THAT FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING?!
Cherish: A BATTERED JAYWALKER – HE MAY HAVE JUST SAVED HIMSELF WITH THAT – AS HE STRUGGLES TO KEEP ON HIS FEET! HE SWINGS THE CHAIR DOWN INTO THE BODY OF ROBBIE! ANOTHER HARD SHOT WITH THAT CHAIR! Jaywalker immediately drags Robbie up! Blood running down the skull of Robbie V as Jaywalker wraps that chair around his head… LOOK OUT!!
Pierre: JAYWALKER DRIVES ROBBIE INTO THE NEARBY RINGPOST WITH THAT CHAIR AROUND HIS THROAT – MY GOD!!! ROBBIE DROPS DOWN, WRITHING IN PAIN, BLOOD RUNNING DOWN HIS FACE! JAYWALKER IS BACK IN THIS IT SEEMS AS HE PULLS ROBBIE BACK UP ONCE MORE! THE SADISTIC LOOK ON HIS FACE AS HE SENDS ROBBIE ROLLING BACK INTO THE RING! Jaywalker slides in, stalking his prey! He pulls Robbie up! HE’S GOT HIM!! CROSSFACE CHICKENWING!!! JAYWALKER TARGETING THAT THROAT OF ROBBIE WITH THIS CROSSFACE CHICKENWING, BUT ROBBIE’S STILL FIGHTING! HE REFUSES TO LET JAYWALKER BRING HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS FOR IT!! HE REFUSES TO DIE HERE!! JAYWALKER’S DOING ALL HE CAN, BUT ROBBIE JUST WON’T DROP!! ROBBIE STRUGGLES TO FIGHT HIS WAY TOWARDS THE NEARBY CORNER! JAYWALKER STILL TRYING TO BRING HIM DOWN!
Cherish: Look at this now! Robbie’s climbing! JAYWALKER REMAINS LATCHED ON WITH THAT CROSSFACE CHICKENWING! ROBBIE MAY NOT BE DOING HIMSELF ANY FAVORS AS HE APPLIES GRAVITY TO THIS HOLD!! HE’S PULLING BOTH HIMSELF AND JAYWALKER UP TO THE TOP!! LOOK OUT!!!
Pierre: ROBBIE SENDS BOTH HE AND JAYWALKER CRASHING DOWN TO THE CANVAS VIOLENTLY, USING HIS ENTIRE WEIGHT TO COME DOWN ON HIS OPPONENT!!! THE HOLD HAS BEEN BROKEN!! ROBBIE JUST SAVED HIMSELF IN THIS CONTEST! Unbelievable! What an unbelieveable contest this has been! These two men have absolutely destroyed one another! All for the right to simply be better than the other! There’s far more than that, but that’s what it boils down to! Both men roll to the outside! Jaywalker lands near that table he set up as Robbie falls the nearby side of the ring…
Cherish: Blood continues to run down the face of Robbie as he… He picks up that chair Jaywalker used on him! He’s got something in mind for it as he lumbers his way towards his opponent! Jaywalker’s hurt, struggling to get back to his feet! ROBBIE’S PICKING UP MOMENTUM! JAYWALKER TURNS TO MEET A STIFF CHAIRSHOT TO THE SKULL!! ANOTHER SHOT! ANOTHER! ROBBIE V IS UNLOADING WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR! HE THROWS IT AWAY AS HE PULLS JAYWALKER UP! ROBBIE’S GOT JAYWALKER IN HIS CLUTCHES, PULLING HIM IN!! HE PICKS JAYWALKER UP!!! HOLD ON – ROBBIE’S GOT JAYWALKER IN POSITION FOR THE 2ND SACRIFICE?! HE’S LOOKING TO PUT JAYWALKER THROUGH THAT TABLE WITH HIS OWN MOVE!! JAYWALKER’S FIGHTING! HE’S FIGHTING WITH ALL HE’S GOT LEFT! JAYWALKER ESCAPES AS HE GRABS THE CELL WALL, PULLING HIMSELF AWAY FROM ROBBIE!
Pierre: Jaywalker starts climbing to escape the grasp of Robbie! That may not have been a smart idea! ROBBIE’S CLIMBING UP THERE BEHIND HIM! HE’S NOT FAR BEHIND!! JAYWALKER SWINGS AT HIM! ROBBIE’S RIGHT THERE WITH HIM AS HE NAILS JAYWALKER WITH A HARD SHOT! JAYWALKER WITH A SHOT RIGHT BACK AT HIM! ROBBIE WITH A KICK INTO THE KIDNEY OF JAYWALKER! ANOTHER KICK! LOOK OUT–
Cherish: SUNSET FLIP!!!! ROBBIE V WITH A SUNSET FLIP ONTO JAYWALKER OFF THE CELL WALL!!! JESUS CHRIST!!! JAYWALKER IS SENT CRASHING DOWN TO THE MAT VIOLENTLY!! HE MAY BE OUT OF THIS ENTIRELY! The concerned Official rushes to the outside, trying to check on Jaywalker, but Robbie isn’t having it! He’s not having any of it as he pulls himself and Jaywalker back up! He places Jaywalker on top of that set up table, looking to put an emphatic end to this contest! Robbie ignores the Referee’s pleas as he climbs to the apron! He’s climbing to the top turnbuckle as this crowd is on their feet! Hold on… Robbie’s shaking his head? ROBBIE LEAPS!
Pierre: HE LEAPS TO THE CELL WALL?! ROBBIE’S CLIMBING THE WALL! WHAT THE HELL IS HE THINKING?! JAYWALKER REMAINS MOTIONLESS ON THAT TABLE AS ROBBIE CONTINUES TO CLIMB ABOVE HIM ON THE CELL WALL! HE’S MAKING HIS WAY TO THE HIGHEST POINT HE CAN GET TO!! IS HE OUT OF HIS MIND?! DON’T DO THIS, ROBBIE! THERE’S NO WAY THIS CAN BE WORTH IT! LOOK HOW HIGH UP HE IS! DON’T–
Cherish: FROGSPLASH FROM THE TOP!!!!!!
(Robbie V goes crashing through the set-up table as Jaywalker moves out of the way)
Pierre: JESUS CHRIST!!! HE MAY BE – I HOPE – I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, GET SOME EMT’S OUT HERE! ROBBIE JUST SENT HIMSELF CRASHING THROUGH THE TABLE FROM AS HIGH AS HE COULD POSSIBLY REACH!! JAYWALKER NARROWLY ESCAPED BEING THE VICTIM OF THAT ATTEMPTED KAMIKAZE FROGSPLASH AS ROBBIE REMAINS MOTIONLESS AMONG THE SHATTERED REMAINS OF THAT TABLE!
Cherish: The Referee’s calling for someone to check on Robbie! He may have to end this! He–
Pierre: JAYWALKER RUSHES IN?! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING?! HE PULLS ROBBIE UP AND SENDS HIM ROLLING BACK INTO THE RING! JAYWALKER SLIDES IN AS THE CONFUSED REFEREE LOOKS ON! JAYWALKER’S HOOKING THE LEG OF ROBBIE! COME ON! THIS MATCH IS OVER AS IT IS! GIVE IT UP!
Jaywalker (no microphone): COUNT IT! COUNT IT, DAMN IT!
Cherish: The Official doesn’t have much of a choice as he reluctantly slides in to count it!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!………. TWO!!!!!!!!!!………. THREE!!!!
(Robbie V barely gets a shoulder up as the crowd erupts)
Pierre: NO WAY! ABSOLUTELY NO WAY! HOW IS HE STILL ALIVE, LET ALONE STILL ABLE TO CONTINUE?! JAYWALKER IS BAFFLED! HE’S ABSOLUTELY BAFFLED! I CAN’T BLAME HIM! Jaywalker shakes his head, refusing to believe this as he drags the bloodied and battered Robbie V up… He’s got Robbie on his feet… JAYWALKER CHARGES INTO THE ROPES! COMING BACK!! THE TRANSCENSION!!!!!
Cherish: ROBBIE DOESN’T GO DOWN!! ROBBIE DOESN’T GO DOWN!! HE JUST ABSORBED THE FULL IMPACT OF THAT LARIAT AS JAYWALKER HASN’T A CLUE!! CONCUSSION!!!!
Pierre: ROBBIE HITS JAYWALKER IN THE BACK OF THE SKULL WITH THAT JUMPING SPINNING HEEL KICK AS JAYWALKER GOES FALLING INTO THE ROPES!!! I DON’T THINK THERE WAS ENOUGH FORCE TO BRING HIM DOWN!
(A stunned Jaywalker turns to see Robbie V on his knees, laughing)
Pierre: ROBBIE V IS COVERED IN BLOOD, ABSOLUTELY BATTERED ON HIS KNEES AS HE LAUGHS!
Cherish: THIS GUY’S LOST IT! HE’S ABSOLUTELY LOST IT!
Pierre: I DON’T THINK HE HAS ANYTHING LEFT IN HIM! THAT CONCUSSION DIDN’T HAVE NEARLY ENOUGH FORCE TO FINISH THIS! JAYWALKER BURSTS FORWARD!!! CATACLYSMIA!!!! AN ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING TIGER UPPERCUT KNEE LIFT CONNECTS TO THE FACE OF ROBBIE V!!!!
Cherish: HE’S NOT FINISHED!! HE DRAGS ROBBIE BACK UP WITH HIM!! HE DRAGS HIM UP AND PULLS HIM IN!! JAYWALKER’S GOT HIM UP!! 2ND SACRIFICE!!!!! THE MOST VIOLENT 2ND SACRIFICE I’VE EVER SEEN AS JAYWALKER BORDER TOSSES ROBBIE RIGHT ONTO HIS DAMN HEAD!!! JAYWALKER COLLAPSES ACROSS THE CHEST OF ROBBIE, HOPING TO GOD THERE’S NOTHING LEFT IN THIS MAN TO KICK OUT!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!…….. TWO!!!!!!!!!!……….. THREE!!!!!!!!!!
Pierre: JAYWALKER HAS FINISHED IT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Play For Keeps” by BoB plays all throughout Madison Square Garden as the Hell In A Cell structure begins to lift)
Announcer: The Winner of this contest by pinfall….. JAAAAAAYYYYYYYYWWWWWAAAAALLLLLKKKKKEEEERRR!!!!!!
Cherish: My GOD what a contest! What a brutal back and forth contest between the two best this company has ever seen! They delivered on every level! I take back everything I said about Robbie V being at a disadvantage! He gave the performance of his life out here tonight for the sake of beating his greatest rival! He did everything he could and more!
Pierre: An indescribable contest that we just witnessed, Cherish! And it’s only the first bout of the night! These two men have done absolutely everything two enemies could do to one another, and I don’t think I have any argument regardless of who would have walked out victorious – they both put everything on the line!
(Medical technicians and Doctors check on both Robbie V and Jaywalker as the Hell In A Cell structure fully lifts)
Cherish: One thing is for certain – these two men will never be the same again! Not after tonight! They may have just laid their 7 and ½ year history to rest here at Reasonable Doubt, and if this is truly the last we see of these two in the ring, I’m certainly not complaining! What a match!
Pierre: These two warriors gave everything they had, and this crowd is showing their appreciation for it – whether you hate them or love it, you’ve gotta hand it to BOTH Robbie V and Jaywalker – they gave each other the fight of their lives! Congratulations to Jaywalker on a massive victory!

(The camera transitions back into the arena, where the ring announcer is standing in the center of the ring, and the referee in the corner)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!.. AND IT’S FOR THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(“That Ain’t My America” by Lynyrd Skynyrd plays as Cody Marshall casually walks out onto the stage. He looks around at the crowd, and tries to get a USA chant going, which is met enthusiastically much to his surprise as he quickly heads to the ring.)
RA: Introducing first, from Austin, Texas, weighing in at 305 POOOOOOOOOOOOOOUNNNNNDSSSSSS!!!!… “AMERICAN MADE” CODDDDDDDYYYYYYYYYY MARSHAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!
Cherish: A man that time forgot. A patriot in and out of the ring, and despite me not agreeing with some of his words or some of his actions, he’s proved that he can stand toe to toe with anyone in the ring. He holds a huge amount of strength in his body and in comparison to Ryan, relies on that powerhouse level of strength, and less on technical ability.
Pierre: I agree with you wholeheartedly. American Made means American Toughness. He can take a massive amount of punishment in the ring. And he can dish out just as painful of punishment. He’s used to dominating people that are a good few inches smaller than him though, I wonder how he is going to deal with Ryan.
(“Arguing with Themometers” by Enter Shikari plays as Ryan Marx casually walks out to the entrance ramp. He hoists the title over his head, staring down at Cody Marshall before draping the title over his shoulder. He strides to the ring, leaping up to the ring and refusing to wipe his feet as he steps into the ring, going nose to nose with Marshall as the ref tries to break them apart.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from London, England, weighing in at 260 POOOOOOOOOUNNNDSSSSSSSS!!!!… HE IS THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOONNNNN!!!!… “THE PHILOSOPHER” RYAAAAAAAAANNNNNNN MAAAAAAAAAAAAAARXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX!!!!
Pierre: The epitome of the new breed. A man that has held the New Breed Championship proudly and has destroyed all comers for the title, but now he’s faced with a foe of big enough height and weight that he might put up a challenge.
Cherish: I wouldn’t call this match too soon Pierre. Ryan has a lot of tricks up his sleeves, and you can never count the Philosopher out of a match by any stretch of the imagination. He has a lot of power, a ton of endurance, and a lot of technical acumen. And, champion’s advantage as well, let’s not forget that little detail.
Pierre: Yeah, but are you sure that Ryan will resort to cheating? In a match like this?
(DING! DING! DING!)
Cherish: Well, we’ll find out. Cody Marshall immediately charging at Ryan who was dealing with the ref, and squashing him into the corner! Cody rebounding off and once again charging at Ryan, with another corner body splash! And rebounding off again! Number three incoming! No! Ryan lifting his body up and planting his legs into the chest of Cody! Cody getting the wind knocked out of him, and Ryan flying out of the corner with a hard european uppercut! That knocks Cody down!
Pierre: Ryan didn’t get a good start here! But he has to find a way to fight out of the haze he might be in from those body splashes. Ryan planting his boot onto the throat of Cody, choking him out on the ground as the ref begins a count. Ryan wisely getting his boot up at the four, and then plants it down on Cody’s throat once again.
Cherish: Wise. Keep Cody from getting any breath or momentum and you’re looking at an easy victory by Ryan. The ref once again starting the count and Ryan pulling his foot away, almost calming down the ref with that approach, and then quickly moving to a mount on top of Cody, throwing heavy handed strikes at the top of his head.
Pierre: Cody is on the defensive right now. The ref pulling Ryan away once again, and Cody gets the moment to get to his knees, drawing up to his feet. Ryan shoving the ref aside and now taking the fight to Cody again with a huge forearm. Knocking the big guy back! Cody rebounding off the ropes AND KNOCKS RYAN FOR A LOOP WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE OFF THE REBOUND!!!
Cherish: Ryan just got taken straight down and now it’s Cody’s turn for some offense. Cody racing off the ropes, leaping up into the air and dropping down with a hard leg-drop, quickly going for a cover!
Referee: ONE!!!.. TWO!!!—
Cherish: KICKOUT! Hard kick out by Ryan! Ryan getting his shoulder up and now Cody grabbing him by the throat, choking him out on the ground. The ref admonishing Cody but Cody ignoring him and ACTUALLY LIFTING CODY UP INTO THE AIR! GOING FOR THAT CHOKEBOMB! CODY WRIGGLING OUT AND GETTING TO HIS FEET!!!!
Pierre: That could have been it right there. But Ryan throwing heavy forearms into the head of Cody, backing him up. Another huge forearm and Cody looks like he’s out on his feet. Cody bouncing off the ropes now and going for another Clothesline! ELBOW SMASH BY RYAN! CODY DEAD ON HIS FEET, AND HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! WAIT! WAIT! THAT’S THE “I THINK”! AND WE KNOW WHAT HE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH! SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK! “THEREFORE I AM” CONNECTS! AND CODY IS STILL ON HIS FEET!
Cherish: Not for long I don’t think! Ryan grabbing a hold of Cody, setting up for the New Heights! Vertical Suplex DDT incoming! And…LIFTING HIM ALL THE WAY UP FOR THAT! THAT IS 13 FEET OF HUMANITY RIGHT NOW! NEW HEIGHT’S COMING?! NO! RELEASING THE DDT HOLD AND DROPPING HIM DOWN IN A VERTICAL SUPLEX! THE FAKEOUT!
Pierre: That was anticlimactic.
Referee: ONE!!!… TWO!!!…
Cherish: KICKOUT AT TWO! CODY SITTING HIS BODY UP FOR THE KICK OUT! AND RYAN LOOKS SHOCKED!
Pierre: Yeah but he also looks ready for something special. Ryan immediately going to a stand and hooking the body of Cody…in a suplex hold…ok but Cody weighs a good 45 pounds more than him, you really think that Ryan is going to deadlift him up for a suplex?
Cherish: YES! RYAN ACTUALLY LIFTING UP ALL 305 POUNDS OF CODY MARSHALL!!! VERTICAL SUPLEX DDT HOLD! AND DROPPING HIM ONTO HIS HEAD! NEW HEIGHTS CONNECTS! ALL 305 POUNDS CRASHING ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD AND NECK! IT’S OVER! IT’S OVER!
Referee: ONE!!!… TWO!!!… THREE—
Cherish: KICKOUT?! KICKOUT?!
Pierre: WHAT?! HOW?!
Cherish: Ryan now has a look of shock and surprise on his face. That was an aggressive kick out, Cody is stirring on the ground, almost unable to move anymore. And Ryan is looking really frustrated. He was so close to taking his title home again. Slamming his fists against the mat right now as well. I’ve never seen Ryan get this frustrated in a matchup.
Pierre: Ryan with another aggressive strike to the side Cody’s head, trying his hardest to keep him down on the ground. Another punch to the skull of Cody. Ryan either trying to bust him open or give him a concussion, but either way it’s pretty bad news for him.
Cherish: Ryan now, dragging Cody’s lifeless body back up to his feet…or not as lifeless as I thought! Cody pushing Ryan away, and Ryan popping back up, right into the waiting arms of Cody! How is Cody still moving?!
Pierre: Well he isn’t just moving! One-armed SPINEBUSTER! SPINEBUSTER! CODY WITH THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!!! But a bit late. Looks like Cody is still struggling with trying to move around. He can’t even muster up the effort to try and pin Ryan.
Cherish: Ryan is stirring though, and immediately kipping up! What is this guy made of?! He is holding his back in a lot of agony though, seemingly pissed off that Cody has survived up till this point. Not only surviving, but actually dealing quite a bit of punishment to Ryan.
Pierre: Ryan glaring down at him but…setting his eyes on the…turnbuckles. Ummm…what is going through his head right now?
Cherish: I don’t want to hazard a guess right now. I’ve never seen Ryan use the top rope for much of anything. But he’s dragging Cody’s lifeless body to the turnbuckles…and setting him up on the top turnbuckle.
Pierre: HE’S GOING TO TRY AND HIT THE NEW HEIGHTS FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Cherish: Oh this isn’t going to be good. And Cody looks completely lifeless! Ryan just toying with him. Giving him a few slaps to the face before ascending to the top turnbuckle himself. Hooking the right arm! Starting to lift and CODY IS ALIVE! CODY GRABBING HOLD OF RYAN’S THROAT WITH HIS LEFT HAND! CODY FREEING HIS RIGHT ARM AND GRASPING ONTO HIS THROAT WITH BOTH HANDS NOW! RYAN IS NOT IN A GOOD PLACE!!
Pierre: RAPTURE! RAPTURE! CHOKEBOMB FROM THE TOP ROPE! COVER! COVER!
Referee: ONE!!!.. TWO!!!… THREE!!!
Cherish: HOW? HOW DID HE KICK OUT?! WHAT IS RYAN MADE OF?!
Pierre: Well apparently, made of enough endurance to survive that choke bomb from the top rope! And Cody is struggling to get to his feet. Cody reaching down, grasping the throat of Ryan again and lifting him high into the air!
Cherish: RAPTURE AGAIN! CHOKEBOMB!!! AND CODY HEADING TO THE SECOND ROPE NOW! MAYBE LOOKING TO FINISH RYAN OFF COMPLETELY HERE!
Pierre: Cody could be looking to completely crush the larynx of Ryan Marx here. He’s pretty wobbly though, and it’s taking him some time to get up there. And RYAN KIPPING UP AGAIN! RYAN RACING FORWARD AND THROWING A STRIKE AT THE SKULL OF CODY! A HARD FOREARM! CODY STILL RESTING UP THERE AND RYAN TURNING AROUND…PELE KICK! AND THAT STUNS CODY!!
Cherish: Ryan now getting up to the second rope, throwing a punch to the skull of Cody again and again. Well if a top rope New Heights won’t connect. Trying it from the second ro-NO! CODY AGAIN HOOKING UP FOR THE RAPTURE!!! AND RYAN DOESN’T EVEN HAVE TIME TO PREPARE!!! LEAPING OFF THE SECOND ROPE!!! RAPTURE! CHOKEBOMB CONNECTING FOR THE THIRD TIME TONIGHT!!! THE COVER!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!… TWO!!!… THREE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ring Announcer: Here’s your winner and NEWWWWWWWWW!!!!… EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIOOOOOONNNN!!!.. COOOOOOODYYYYYYYY MAAAAAAAAARSHHHHHHAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!
Pierre: What a maneuver to steal the victory! We thought that Cody Marshall would put away Ryan Marx with a devastating Chokebomb from the top rope, yet Ryan showed just how powerful he is with a kick out. However, he couldn’t outlast through three chokebomb’s, including that last one from the middle rope, and the Epitome of the New Breed has been dethroned!
Cherish: And that’s no joke, he was put away with some force too! Ryan is still devastated on the ground, but Cody is pretty lifeless as well. The ref just draping the title across his chest, but we may need to get some medical attention out here for these two. What a match!

(The camera cuts back into the sold out Madison Square Garden, where thousands upon thousands of fans are cheering, the camera pans around to the ring announcer..)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall, and it is for the EAW TAG TEAMMMMM CHAMPIONSHIPPPPPPPPPPPPP!
(“Devastate” by Heroes Lie hits the speakers as Nobi and Lioncross makes his way through the curtain, flanked by Lyuncrust as chants of “NO BEEF” fill the stadium. Lyuncrust tries to force a slice of chicken into Nobi’s mouth, but is ignored as the Indonesian makes his determined march to the ring.)
Cherish: Well here come the number one contenders Nobi and former Cash in the Vault winner Lioncross, they are looking to win Tag Team gold tonight at Reasonable Doubt in the city that never sleeps!
Pierre: The city that never sleeps indeed, listen to this crowd at Madison Square Garden as the “NO BEEF” chants are getting louder and louder each moment! Let me say Lyuncrust is the X-Factor is this match-up because he was the one responsible for Nobi’s victory after squirting mustard in Jack Ripley’s last week on Showdown!
Cherish: Oh come on, it was on accident! That wasn’t the only factor of Nobi winning last week and you know it!
(‘I Get Money’ by 50 Cent erupts from the speakers as The High Rollerz make their way down the ramp to a chorus of boos. Jack talks with David about his eye from last week as both men look pissed off after being embarrassed last week on Showdown…)
Pierre: What did I say? Jack is embarrassed! Just look at the way they are walking down the ramp, they are walking with a purpose, they’ve been childhood friends and tonight they look to not only get revenge on Stuffed Crust but also retain the Tag Team Titles!
Cherish: Look at the cockiness of The High Rollerz pushing Nobi and Lioncross as they showboat with their Tag Team Championships, but the referee quickly takes care of the situation and shows to the crowd both title belts are on the line…
(DING, DING, DING!)
Pierre: Nobi will start off in this match-up against David Davidson, this should be a great match as DAVID POKES NOBI RIGHT IN THE EYE EARLY ON AS HE GOES BACK TO HIS CORNER AND IS CRACKING UP WITH JACK! I guess you can say The High Rollerz got their payback early on in this match?
Cherish: Look at Lyuncrust complaining with the referee as he has his mouth full of a hot dog, don’t choke on your food now! LOOK OUT! Nobi recovers from the eye poke and rushes towards the turnbuckle and gives David a huge clothesline and punches Jack as he falls to the floor, QUICK ROLL UP, the referee goes for the count!
Referee: ONE!!!.. TWO!!!.. THREE!!!
Pierre: Did you really think it would be that quick? Come on The High Rollerz are THE best Tag Team in EAW right now, they won these titles at King of the Elite for a reason!
Cherish: Both men get back up quickly as Nobi goes for a drop kick MISSES and LOOK OUT, NOBI’S GOING FOR A RIDE! GERMAN SUPLEX BY DAVIDSON BUT WAIT! NOBI LANDS ON HIS FEET, DAVID TURNS AROUND AND OH MAN WHAT A KICK AS NOBI FALLS TO THE GROUND! HERE’S THE QUICK COVER!
Referee: ONE!!!.. TWO!!!!…
Pierre: David thought he could have ended it there as that loud kick was heard in the rafters here at Madison Square Garden but he wastes little time as he drags Nobi to the corner and tags Jack Ripley into the ring and continues to hold his leg as Jacks drops an elbow onto Nobi’s back as he screams in pain! Jack turns Nobi around and begins to deliver punches….MORE AND MORE PUNCHES AS THE REFEREE BEGINS TO COUNT TO FIVE! STOP IT JACK, PLEASE!
Cherish: Jack let’s go as the referee warns him about the five count but yet AGAIN JACK GOES TO THE GROUND AND CONTINUES TO PUNCH NOBI TO A PULP AND LADIES AND GENTLEMAN WE HAVE BLOOD SHED ALREADY AS JACK TAUNTS TO THE CROWD!
Pierre: Jack was embarrassed last week on Showdown and he’s just letting his frustrations out plain and simple, fun fact mustard can blind you Cherish….
Cherish: Anyway…..arm lock applied on Nobi as he tries to reach for the ropes and he gets it! Jack let’s go as he tags David back in and stomps onto the back of Nobi, he really needs a tag here Pierre as Lioncross tries to scream at Nobi to crawl over to the opposite corner…
Lioncross: (no mic) COME ON NOBI, WE GOT TO GET BACK IN THIS! “NO BEEF, NO BEEF, NO BEEF!”
Pierre: Look at Lyuncrust cheering on Nobi as he tries to crawl to his corner but David tries to grab his leg and stop his momentum but Nobi tries to punch David and gets back up on one leg! OH MAN WHAT A SHINING WIZARD BY NOBI! BOTH MEN FALL TO THE GROUND, LIONCROSS BEGINS TO CLAP AS THE CROWD BEGINS TO ROAR IN STUFFED CRUST’S FAVOR AS NOBI TRIES TO CRAWL TO HIS CORNER! DAVID TRYING TO STOP NOBI BUT IT’S TOO LATE, TAG! AND HERE COMES LIONCROSS!
Cherish: Lioncross getting into this match for the first time tonight and delivers a huge clothesline as Nobi falls to the floor and Lyuncrust rushes to check on him! But back in the ring David Davidson is slow to get up but Lioncross is a measuring one half of the Tag Team Champions and hits him with a vertical suplex! Lioncross quickly takes advantage of this opportunity and goes to the top rope! High risk for Lioncross as David is slow to get up and gets back to his feet and look out! CROSS BODY CONNECTS! NO! DAVID ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AS CROSS CRASH AND BURNS!
Pierre: David is quick to his corner and tags in Jack Ripley! Lioncross is laying on his back as now Jack is rushing to the top rope and now he’s trying to go for a high risk move! THE TOP SHELF IS AT THE TOP ROPE AND LOOK OUT MOONSAULT FROM THE TOP ROPE CONNECTS! COVER!
Referee: ONE!!!… TWO!!!… THHHH—
Pierre: SHOULDER UP!!!
Cherish: JACK CANNOT BELIEVE IT! HE IS PLEADING WITH THE REFEREE THAT WAS THREE BUT NOPE JACK IT WAS ONLY TWO! MADISON SQUARE GARDEN HAS EXPLODED AS LIONCROSS IS BACK TO HIS FEET!
Pierre: Lioncross is quickly back to a vertical base as Jack turns around done arguing with the referee as both men go back and forth with hard punches to the skull! A RIGHT TO JACK, NOW ONE TO CROSS! LISTEN TO THE GARDEN WITH THESE BOO AND YEAH CHANTS BETWEEN CROSS AND JACK!
Crowd: BOOOOOOO! ….OHHHHHHH YEAH! BOOOOOOOO…………YEAH! …..OHHHHHHH BOOOOOO! …….YEAHHHHHHHHHH!
Cherish: Look at Lioncross, you can tell he is running on adrenaline at the moment as he runs towards the ropes and a lands a hurricanrana! Jack can’t handle the cross, as he gets back up and Cross comes rushing towards the corner and lands a big clothesline as Jack falls to the floor! BUT LOOK FROM BEHIND, DAVID DAVIDSON COMES INTO THE RING AND DROPKICKS LIONCROSS TO THE FLOOR! ….WAIT LOOK IT’S NOBI! NOBI IS BACK IN THE RING AS HE WIPES THE BLOOD OFF HIS FOREHEAD AND BEGINS TO THROW PUNCHES AT DAVID! IRISH WHIP INCOMING AS DAVID GOES OVER THE ROPE NEAR THE ENTRANCE WAY BUT LANDS ON THE APRON BUT LOOK OUT NOBI TAKES HIMSELF OUT AS HE HITS HIM OFF THE APRON AND HE FLINGS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND FALLS TO THE FLOOR WITH HIM!
Pierre: Look back in the ring! LIONCROSS OUT OF NOWHERE LOCKS IN THE CROSSFACE, JACK IS IN DEEP DEEP TROUBLE AS HE IS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! HE IS TRYING TO CRAWL TO THE BOTTOM ROPE BUT HE CAN’T AS THE CROSSFACE IS LOCKED IN DEEP WHAT IS JACK GONNA DO?!?
Cherish: HE’S GONNA TAP, HE’S GONNA TAP! ….WAIT NO! JACK REVERSES IT AND TRIES TO LOCK IN THE CROSSFACE BUT QUICKLY LIONCROSS CRAWLS TO THE BOTTOM ROPE AND DOESN’T ALLOW IT AS JACK QUICKLY RELEASES!
Pierre: What a match here inside the world’s famous arena, it’s all about the Tag Team Championships! If The High Rollerz retain the titles tonight they will reach there one month reign as champions this coming Tuesday!
Cherish: Forget the one month reign, The High Rollerz almost lost the titles plus the match isn’t even over yet! We are still far from over! Look at this all four men are brawling outside the ring and the referee is trying to bring the two legal men back into the ring which is Jack and Lioncross but they aren’t listening to him!
Pierre: They are all brawling out in-front of us but look the referee climbs outside the ring trying to get both men in the ring but LOOK OUT! Lyuncrust was trying to squirt ketchup on his hot dog but squirts some all over his shirt AND OUCH INTO HIS EYES! KETCHUP IN HIS EYES AS HE FALLS TO THE GROUND IN PAIN!
Lyuncrust: (No mic) Dammit! Not again!
Cherish: In the meantime Lioncross and Nobi are in control of this brawl outside the ring and watch out they are taking apart our announce table and taking a table out under the ring of there own! What are they thinking!?! Stuffed Crust has placed The High Rollerz onto both tables, no wait where are they going? GET DOWN FROM THERE! THIS SOLD OUT CROWD AT THE GARDEN ARE TAKING OUT THEIR PHONES AS STUFFED CRUST IS CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE RIGHT IN-FRONT OF US! GET DOWN FROM THERE THIS IS AN ALL IN MOVE! OH MY GOD! DOUBLE FROG SPLASH BY STUFFED CRUST ONTO THE HIGH ROLLERZ CONNECTS THROUGH BOTH TABLES! ALL FOUR MEN ARE OUT COLD!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
(The broadcast shows a replay of the double frog splash from multiple angles…..)
Pierre: How is Lioncross even up right now? Slowly but surely gets back up to a vertical base tries to pick up the dead body weight of Jack and slowly drags him into the ring and crawls back into the ring himself.
Cherish: The huge problem with this situation is that there is no referee, thanks to Lyuncrust another victim was made today thanks to his squirting problem….
Pierre: Look at ringside! David is crawling and grabs one of the EAW Tag Title belts and throws it into the ring near Jack Ripley! There is no referee around, not this way! Jack grabs the belt and as Lioncross tries to grab the back of the head of Jack, he turns around and BAM the title belt across the skull of Lioncross! Cross has officially drawn blood as he a little dazed!
Cherish: JACK IS SIGNALING THE END RIGHT NOW, LOOK OUT LIONCROSS! …..RIPPLE EFFECT WHAT A VERTEBREAKER BY JACK RIPLEY! Lyuncrust continues to check on the downed referee a new one comes rushing down the ramp here at Madison Square Garden as the crowd fills the arena with boo’s……KICKOUT PLEASE!
Referee: ONE!!!… TWO!!!!… THREE!!!
(DING, DING, DING!)
(“I Get Money” by 50 Cent erupts from the speakers as David Davidson climbs into the ring with both EAW Tag Team belts and jumps on Jack Ripley as the crowd fills the Garden with boo’s)
Pierre: They get money! They get the big matches! They get the titles!
Cherish: What a match tonight at Reasonable Doubt but not this way!
Pierre: Whatever it takes to win Cherish, that’s how you become a champion in this industry! Congrats to The High Rollerz but nothing to be ashamed of for Stuffed Crust! It just wasn’t there night tonight at Reasonable Doubt….
(The camera fixates itself on The High Rollerz celebrating in the ring with their EAW Tag Team Championships, the crowd still loudly boos, as the camera pans elsewhere…)
(The camera transitions into a forest, where it pans over the beautiful greenery…)
“I don’t ever care to rise to power… I would rather be with you an hour.”
(It scans across the forest, showing several animals drinking from a stream, when suddenly a deer pops it’s head up)
“For the things that one can buy… Are not worth a lover’s sigh.”
(When suddenly smoke is seen rising from the trees, the animals scurry away, as the screen starts to become orange and red…)
“I don’t want to set the world on fire… I just want to start a flame in your heart”
(The camera pulls out of the forest, showing a wildfire spreading across the greenery…)
“In my heart I have but one desire… And that one is you, no other will do”
(A time lapse occurs, revealing the now burnt down forest, and a dark shadowed figure in the remains…)
???: (Disfigured VO) Everything… burns.
(The camera zooms in on the darkened face, but the camera cuts to black before anything is seen)
(The camera transitions back into the cheering Madison Square Garden, where thousands of fans are cheering, then pans down to the ring…)

(Chris Elite enters the ring, looking around to everyone else who has already entered, and the referee calls for the bell…)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre: THE CARNAGE BEGINS! Already we see eager competitors pick their marks. In one corner, the two powerhouses, Grier and Kruger, test each other’s strength with the collar and elbow tie up. In the other, familiar veteran Chris Elite welcomes debuting newcomer Danny Stone with a friendly shove into the turnbuckles. In the centre we have Scott Rosario goading on Darkane. Hollering at him. Waving him over across the battlefield.
Cherish: But how about that look on Darkane face? He has that 1000 yard stare, as if he’s just looking straight past him. ROSARIO BURSTS FORWARDS FOR THE CLOTHESLINE. But Darkane ducks it, continues on…RUNNING KNEE!!! JACKSON BLACK TRIES TO AVOID IT BUT HE SAW IT TOO LATE, HE FLIPS HEAD OVER HEELS FROM THE SHEER FORCE OF THAT BLOW!
Pierre: Darkane never had eyes for Rosario at all, he honed in on Black like a guided missile AND NOW HE GOES TO WORK! VICIOUS STOMPS RAINING DOWN ON JACKSON BLACK’S EXTREMITIES! We knew Darkane was angry at Monroe for placing Black in the Gold Rush ahead of him, and now we see him taking out his frustration with single minded malice.
Cherish: He needs to pay more attention around him, here comes Rosario again, BEATING DARKANE INTO THE CORNER WITH THOSE CLUBBING FOREARMS FROM BEHIND. HE GRABS DARKANE BY THE HEAD AND DRIVES THE SKULL REPEATEDLY INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Pierre: LOOK! Kotaro Gin finds himself free of attention…LEAPING INTO A FLYING FRONT KICK! ROSARIO SPINS OUT OF THE WAY AND DARKANE GETS ALL OF IT! Wiping his brow with a grin, the Jokster Rosario happily backs off, allowing Gin to unload with those Kung Fu kicks. Meanwhile, Las and Jason remain at a stalemate, trading punches but neither man really looking phased by the other’s offence. ROSARIO MOVES IN TO TIP THE SCALES! HE’S GOTTEN GRIER BY THE LEG! ROSARIO WORKING WITH KRUGER TO FORCE GRIER OVER THE ROPES AND NOW THIS IS A PRECARIOUS SITUATION!!! BUT WAIT…LARS HOLDS FIRM. LARS IS FIGHTING BACK AND USING ALL OF HIS STRENGTH TO RETURN HIS FEET TO SOLID GROUND. HEADBUTT! DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPERATE MEASURES AS GRIER CLASHES SKULLS WITH KRUGER TO BREAK THE HOLD ON HIM. NOW THE ELBOWS! ROSARIO ALSO FORCED TO STUMBLE BACK. AND NOW GRIER IS UNLEASHED!!! HE DUCKS TANDEM CLOTHESLINES AND REBOUNDS OFF THE BACK ROPES…DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!!!
Ring Anouncer: Scott Rosario and Jason Kruger have been eliminated!
Cherish: Grier is on fire. What is it about this guy and Battle Royales? OH! DARKANE FIGHTING DIRTY AS HE RAKES THE EYES OF GIN! A blinded Kotaro founders backwards. OH GOD! LARS LIFTS HIM STRAIGHT UP. DEMOLITION DROP!!! GRIER JUST DEMOLISHES KOTARO GIN. AND THOSE TREMORS HAVE GAINED SOME ATTENTION. DARKANE TARGETS LARS WITH THE BICYCLE KNEE. EVADED-BUT NOT BY CHRIS ELITE. CHRIS TAKES IT FLUSH ON THE CHIN AS DARKANE REBOUNDS…SPEAR! LAWS ALMOST SPEARS HIM OUT OF HIS BOOTS! LAWS IS DROPPING BODIES LEFT AND RIGHT.
Pierre: Now he just needs to get them over the ropes. But Danny Stone seems to have noticed the danger. He grips Theron Nikolas tight by the shoulders , talking into his ear as he points at the manifestation of destruction. Theron nods…I THINK WE HAVE AN ALLIANCE, FOLKS. NIKOLAS DARTS AT GRIEF, DUCKING A CLOTHESLINE ENROUTE TO APPLYING THE REAR WAISTLOCK. GRIEF AGITATES BUT NIKOLAS IS HOLDING HIM IN PLACE ADMIRABLY. HERE’S STONE…ST DISMAS! STONE PUNISHES GRIEF WITH THE DISCUS YAKUZA KICK, AND NIKOLAS CHASES IT UP WITH AN INCH PERFECT GERMAN SUPLEX.
Cherish: And with that the whole complexion of this match has changed. It could be anyone’s game right now-KOTARO GIN WITH THE DROP KICK! DANNY STONE IS SENT TUMBLING THROUGH THE ROPES! That’s through the middle rope, he is still in this match. AND THERON ACTS SWIFTLY, GRABBING UP KOTARO AND TIPPING HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!!! BUT GIN LANDS ON THE APRON. ENZIGUIRI!!! THERON GETS HIS CLOCK CLEANED AND COLLAPSES TO THE MAT. GIN SAVES HIMSEL-ELITE!!! BOX OFFICE SMASH!
Ring Anouncer: Kotaro Gin has been eliminated!
Pierre: WOW! Spoke too soon. Elite pops up out of nowhere to super kick Gin clear off that apron. But here comes Darkane. BIG ELBOW SHOT CRACKS ELITE ABOUT THE JAW! CHRIS STUMBLES AND DARKANE FOLLOWS WITH THE KNEE LIFT! BUT CHRIS CATCHES THE LEG!!! ELITE COUNTERS AND TOSSES DARKANE OUT ONTO THE APRON! AND NOW BOTH COMPETITORS THROWING WILD FISTS. ELITE LOOKING FOR THE ELIMINATION, AND DARKANE JUST LOOKING TO SURVIVE.
Cherish: HOLD ON? THAT’S JACKSON BLACK! I FORGOT HE WAS EVEN STILL IN THIS MATCH, BUT HE’S IN THE RING AND EYEING DARKANE WITH BAD INTENTIONS FOLLOWING HIS EARLIER ACTIONS. HE SPRINTS IN TO FINISH HIM…BUT DARKANE PULLS DOWN THE ROPES. BLACK TUMBLES OVER!!!
Ring Announcer: Jackson Black has been eliminated!
Pierre: Well that didn’t go as planned. Black was looking for revenge and got an early bath for his troubles. But that’s what happen when you start getting distracted instead of thinking about survival first in this match. Darkane rolls back into the ring, AND CHRIST ELITE IS IMMEDIATELY ON HIM! CHRIS DRIVES HIM INTO THE CORNER, HOOKING THE LEG AS HE TRIES JUST TO HEAVE HIM OVER! UGH-OH…LARS IS BACK! GRIER GETS RIGHT BEHIND ELITE AND DUMPS THE BOTH OF THEM OVER THE ROPES LIKE ITS NOTHING! BUT BOTH MEN SURVIVE. DARKANE JABS GRIER IN THE EYES IN DESPERATION. LARS REELS, SWINGING IN BLIND RAGE AND ACTUALLY CATCHING DARKANE RIGHT ACROSS THE CHEEK. HE FALLS! BUT DARKANE SKINS THE CAT, HE SAVES HIMSELF BY THE SLIMMEST MARGINS AND SLIDES BACK UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE. MEANWHILE CHRIS STILL BRAVELY BATTLES WITH LARS, MANAGING TO WHACK HIM AWAY WITH A STIFF ELBOW…WHAT!?!?!? ELITE IS GOING TO THE TOP ROPE. IS HE CRAZY? THE LOOK ON HIS FACE SAYS SO AS HE PREPARES TO LAUNCH HIMSELF AT GRIER… BUT THERON! THERON NIKOLAS SHAKES THE ROPE FROM UNDER HIM. ELITE LOSES HIS BALANCE!
Ring Announcer: Chris Elite has been eliminated!
Cherish: And that is over half the competitors out of this match. One of these four men will be the new National Elite Championship Contender. DARKANE FANCIES HIS CHANCES, SWINGING AT GRIER WITH THE DISCUS LARIAT! BUT GRIER BOBS UNDER IT, PULLING DARKANE BACK IN. BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! DARKANE IS LAUNCHED HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING BY THE STRENGTH OF LARS GRIE- METEORA! THERON NIKOLAS DRIVES HIM DOWN HARD WITH THE RUNNING METEORA! LARS LEFT WITH A GLAZED LOOK IN HIS EYES AS THE WOLVES CIRCLE. HE WOBBLES SHAKILY TO HIS FEET AS DANNY STONE APPROACHES…BIG BOOT! THE BIG BOOT ALMOST TAKES GRIER’S HEAD OFF. Nikolas and Stone are jubilant. They shake hands after a job well done…
Pierre: DEAD MAN’S HAND! NIKOLAS LURED STONE INTO THE SHORT ARM LARIAT AND ABSOLUTELY LEVELS HIM. THERON HAULS UP THE LIMP BODY AND DUMPS IT UNCEREMONIOUSLY OVER THE TOP ROPE.
Ring Announcer: Danny Stone has been eliminated.
Cherish: And then there were three. Theron Nikolas’ deception claims another hopeful.
Pierre: He was always just another useful idiot, this is where the real contest begins. Theron chuckles to himself as he watches the other two fight back to their feet. He heads for Lars, AND ALMOST GETS DECAPITATED BY A BIG LARIAT ON THE TURN! BACK SENTON! LARS DELIVERING MORE TO THE GROUNDED NIKOLAS. BUT DARKANE SPRINTS BEHIND HIM. DEVIL MAY CRY!!! THE SPEAR TO THE SPINE CONNECTS AND DARKANE IS THE LAST MAN STANDING IN THE RING!
Cherish: THEN WHO JUST SLID IN? IT’S JACKSON BLACK! BUT…BUT HE’S ALREADY ELIMINATED?!?! HE SPRINTS BEHIND DARKANE AND AND FORCES HIM OVER THE ROPES BEFORE HE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED.
Ring Announcer: Darkane has been eliminated.
Pierre: I don’t like it, but those are the rules. Darkane is out of the match. This heated rivalry has spilled out of control and has just cost two men a real chance at the National Elite Championship. I hope they’re happy.
Cherish: Well that leaves us to our final two. Lars Grier and Theron Nikolas each just realising the situation they are in. Each with two eliminations thus far and knowing that a third will mean an automatic championship opportunity. Theron, still looking slightly winded from Grier’s earlier senton, he leans on the rope for support, BUT LARS GOES IN IN FOR THE KILL. BUTCHER’S KNEE! THERON EVADES IT! THERON SKIPS OUT OF THE WAY AND LARS FALLS RIGHT OUT ONTO THE APRON BY HIS OWN MOMENTUM. THERON TRYING TO HAMMER HIM AWAY WITH HARD CLUBBING FOREARMS. BUT LARS ENDURES. LARS TIES HIM UP IN THE FRONT FACELOCK AND PULLS HIM UP…VERTICAL SUPLEX!!!
Pierre: BUT THERON ESCAPES. HE BRINGS THE KNEE HARD INTO GRIER’S SKULL AND SLIDES FREE BESIDE HIM ON THE APRON. AND NOW EACH MaN DESPERATELY TRADING PUNCHES! EACH WANING WITH EACH SUCCESSIVE BLOW SUFFERED. UPPERCUT!!! THERON HITS A PERFECT UPPERCUT AND LARS IS ROCKED. HE SLUMPS, BARELY HANGING ON WITH JUST ONE FOOT ON THE APRON, AND ONE HAND CLUTCHING FOR DEAR LIFE TO THE ROPE! THERON TRIES TO PRY LARS’ HAND LOOSE BEFORE HE SNAPS BACK. BUT LARS IS ALIVE. HE TRAPS THERON’S ARM UNDER THE ROPE, TWISTING IT BACK AS THERON HOWLS IN BURNING AGONY! LARS FORCES HIS HEAD DOWN THE WITH THE FREE ARM. KNEE LIFT! AND ANOTHER! AGAIN! GRIER HITTING HIM AGAIN AND AGAIN WITH UNRELENTING AGGRESSION.
Cherish: I’M NOT EVEN SURE THERON IS STILL AWAKE. THAT ARMLOCK IS IS THE ONLY THING KEEPING HIM UP RIGHT NOW. OH GOD HAVE MERCY! BUT LARS RELEASES, HE LET’S HIM GO AND THERON FALLS LIMP TO THE OUTSIDE.
Ring Announcer: Theron Nikolas has been eliminated!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ring Announcer: Your winner and new number one contender for the National Elite Championship….LARS GRRRIIIIIIIEEEEEEERRR!!!
(“Right Between The Eyes” by Crobot hits the speakers as Lars hops off the apron and beats his chest in celebration)
Pierre: Unbelievable. This is the second battle royal in short succession that Lars has demolished. Another well earned title opportunity, but I really don’t think it’s fair that he keeps being put in these sorts of matches. He’s clearly a Battle Royal specialist.
Cherish: It’s hard to argue with you right now, Pierre. But it wasn’t made easy for him. We saw a lot of really solid new talent turn up today. Including that Theron Nikolas, who really was *this* close to earning a title shot On His Debut. The future is bright.
(The camera focuses on Lars Grier celebrating, raising his fists in the air, while Theron Nikolas looks angered ringside, the camera fades elsewhere…)
(Camera transitions back to Max A. Million with a microphone in hand)
Max: I think it’s safe to say Reasonable Doubt: Judgement Day has lived up to its name in many ways already tonight, and I’m here now with the man behind all of it: Showdown General Manager, Damien Murrow.
(The camera pans to the right to reveal a smiling Damien Murrow in a black suit)
Max: Mr. Murrow–
Murrow: Max, please…
(Murrow puts a hand on the shoulder of Max)
Murrow: My father was Mr. Murrow. You can call me Damien.
Max: Really? You seem to be in a pretty good mood.
Murrow: Oh, do I?
Max: I think so. What are your thoughts on the Hell In A Cell contest between Robbie V and Jaywalker?
(Murrow’s wicked smile grows wider)
Murrow: I’m happy you asked, Max. Personally, I thought it was one of the best Hell In A Cell contests EAW has ever seen, and certainly worthy of the final encounter between two high profile stars the caliber of Jaywalker and Robbie V.
Max: Any update on the condition of Robbie?
Murrow: Not so good, hopefully.
Max: …. “Hopefully”?
(Murrow’s expression turns more serious)
Murrow: I may be the General Manager of this brand, but I’m not going to pretend I don’t loathe Robbie V. I hate him with every fiber of my being. I hate everything about him. I hate everything I did for him as he wasted MY time. He ASSAULTED me! He deserved everything he got! He–
(Max becomes visibly uncomfortable, making Damien Murrow stop what he’s saying. Max backs away as a confused Murrow turns around to lock eyes with… Ares Vendetta)
Ares: I couldn’t agree more. He deserved everything he got. Absolutely everything.
Murrow: Can I help you?
Ares: I believe you can. I’m glad you and I are on the same page when it comes to Robbie. However, I think you may be underestimating him.
Ares: He’s not through. Not as long as he’s alive. If he can still move – he’ll fight. He won’t say no. He’s an idiot. I know him better than anyone, I know how he works. This… This isn’t over. But it will be.
Murrow: Is that so? What are you suggesting?
Ares: I want him in the ring.
Murrow: You want a match with your own father? Your arm–
Ares: I’m perfectly aware of the condition of my arm. I’m also perfectly aware of the condition he’s in right now. We should be on equal footing, don’t you think?
Murrow: Well… I mean, I suppose–
Ares: So give him to me. He’ll fight. Let me finish this.
(Murrow takes a moment to think it over before slowly nodding his head)
Murrow: … Alright. Alright, fine. You got your match. At Gold Mine, it’ll be Robbie V against Ares Vendetta… If he’s able to compete again, despite what you say. Though after what Jaywalker did to him, I wouldn’t get my hopes up. If he IS foolish enough to fight again, do whatever it is you feel the need to do. I want him off my show. No, I want him dead.
(Murrow takes his leave as Ares looks on)

(Recap video plays showcasing the feud between The Heart Break Boy and Devan Dubian…)
(Camera fades to the center of the ring where the ring announcer is standing)
Ring Announcer: This following match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!… AND IT’S FOR THE EAW HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONSHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!
(“Dark Fantasy” by Kanye West blares throughout the arena, as the fans react down the middle, The Heart Break comes walking out behind the curtain in pure white attire, he looks toward the Madison Square Garden crowd, before falling to his knees, praying, then raising his his hands in the air as pyrotechnics explode behind him, he jumps up and makes his way down to the ring)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Ferguson, Missouri, weighing in at 220 POOOOOOOOOOUNDDDDDSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!… “THE GOLDEN BOY” THE HEARTTTTTTTT BREAAAAAAKKK BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYYY!!!!
Pierre: ONCE AGAIN! SCUM FROM ANOTHER BRAND SOMEHOW FINDS ITS WAY OVER HERE ON SHOWDOWN! AND OUR EXCLUSIVE PAY-PER-VIEW TO BE EXACT!
Cherish: Ugh, anyway. I’m really amped for this match! I’ve been wanting to see Devan Dubian and The Heart Break Boy go at it again for quite some time! And there’s a huge reward at the end of this bout: The EAW Hall of Fame Championship! The Heart Break Boy has desperately been trying to find his place in EAW, but this could be it! If he can win the Hall of Fame title, who knows? The World Heavyweight Championship might not be too far behind!
(The Heart Break Boy enters the ring, taking off his white vest, as he looks down to the stage…)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent…
(“This Means War” by Avenged Sevenfold hits as the fans immediately explode into cheers, Devan Dubian enters the Madison Square Garden wearing black and gold attire, and the EAW Hall of Fame Championship draped on his shoulder… he pauses a few moments midway down the stage, before raising the Hall of Fame Championship into the air, golden pyro explodes from the stage, as he proceeds to walk down to the ring)
Ring Announcer: From Leicester, England, United Kingdom, weighing in at 230 POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUNNNNNNNNDSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!… HE IS THE EAW HALL OF FAME CHAMPPPPPPPIOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNN!!!!… “THE AMAZING EMIR” DEEEEVANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN DUUUUUUUUBBBBBBBIAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNN!!!!
Cherish: WOW! THIS CROWD IS POURING OUT IT’S LOVE FOR DEVAN DUBIAN! THEY’RE LETTING THEIR VOICES BE HEARD! You can certainly see with the smile on Dubian’s face, he’s embracing it all! He’s always been quite the fan favorite as of late! And ever since winning the Hall of Fame Championship, he’s been on one up and down rollercoaster journey! He’s managed to retain his title against Crash, but sadly was unable to win the Extreme Elimination Chamber!
Pierre: There’s a lot riding on Devan Dubian tonight! He a lot on his shoulders, but I think that makes him even MORE dangerous! When put into a pressured position like this, he’s like a cornered animal! He’s just waiting to viciously strike!
Cherish: I agree! But The Heart Break Boy is just as cornered! So, we’ll see who desires this victory even more!
(Devan Dubian hands his Hall of Fame Championship over to the referee, the referee walks over to The Heart Break Boy and shows it to him, and then raises it for the crowd to see…)
Pierre: This is going to be one hell of a match!
Cherish: I’m just waiting for that bell!
(The referee hands the title over to the timekeeper, then calls for the bell…)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Pierre: AND DEVAN DUBIAN CHARGES AT THE HEART BREAK BOY AND HE STARTS UNLOADING! RIGHT HAND AFTER RIGHT HAND SENT TO THE VISAGE OF THE HEART BREAK BOY, BUT THE HEART BREAK BOY FINALLY SHOVES HIM OFF! Devan Dubian has a little smirk as he looks across the ring as The Heart Break Boy… AND DUBIAN CHARGES FOR A CLOTHESLINE! BUT THE HEART BREAK BOY DUCKS UNDERNEATH AND BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES! Dubian turns arou—FLYING FOREARM SMASH FROM THE HEART BREAK BOY CONNECTS! Devan is staggering now, taking a few steps backwards… AND THE HEART BREAK BOY CHARGES AGAIN! AND THIS TIME HE GOES FOR A PICTURE PERFECT DROPKICK! BUT DEVAN PUSHES HIS FEET AWAY AND DODGES THE MANEUVER! The Heart Break Boy, on one knee, looks up at Devan and smirks now. These two are just playing games with one another at this point!
Cherish: That may be true, but they are both up now… AND THEY LOCK UP! Devan Dubian uses a strength advantage to muscle The Heart Break Boy into a side headlock, but he shoves Dubian out and into the ropes! Devan bounces back… AND THE HEART BREAK BOY WITH A HIP TOSS! BUT DEVAN DUBIAN STAYS GROUNDED! HE PULLS THE HEART BREAK BOY IN! BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX CONNECTS AND THE HEART BREAK BOY FLIES INTO THE CORNER! Devan Dubian quickly rolls over onto his feet, staring at the seated Heart Break Boy… AND DEVAN CHARGES! RUNNING LOW DROPKICK TO THE FACE OF THE HEART BREAK BOY! BUT THE HEART BREAK BOY PULLS HIMSELF OUT OF THE RING AND DEVAN SLIDES BETWEEN THE ROPES AS WELL! The referee begins to cou—HEART BREAK BOY WITH A LARIAT TO THE BACK OF DUBIAN’S HEAD OUT OF NOWHERE! HE JUST ABSOLUTELY ANNIHILATED THE AMAZING EMIR!
Pierre: YES! HE! DID! The Heart Break Boy pulls Devan Dubian up, and the referee is at a two count as he drags Dubian over towards the apron, leaning him against it… AND ECHOING CHEST CHOP! ANOTHER! A THIRD! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! And…. FOR THE TENTH HE LAYS A HEADBUTT INTO THE SKULL OF DEVAN DUBIAN! The Heart Break Boy rolls Dubian in the ring, and enters himself, ending the referee’s count. The Heart Break Boy is standing over the dazed and weakened Dubian, and he reaches down and lifts his legs up… HE IS LOOKING FOR THAT SIGNATURE SHARPSHOOTER SUBMISSION! BUT DEVAN DUBIAN IS DOING EVERYTHING IN HIS WILLPOWER TO AVOID IT! HE IS SHOVING KICKS INTO THE GUT OF THE HEART BREAK BOY, HE IS DRIVING PUNCHES INTO THE CALVES OF THE GOLDEN BOY, AND HE FINALLY SHOVES THE HEART BREAK BOY AWAY WITH A DEFIANT DOUBLE KICK!
Cherish: Devan Dubian is trying to get to his fee–BUT THE HEART BREAK BOY DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE LETTING HIM! HE CHARGES AFTER HIM! BUT OUT OF NOWHERE, DUBIAN SENDS THE GOLDEN BOY INTO THE MAT WITH AN ARM DRAG! Devan runs off the ropes… AND RUNNING KNEE TO THE SIDE OF THE HEART BREAK BOY’S HEAD CONNECTS! Devan leans over, pulling The Heart Break Boy up to his feet, and he goes underneath his arm, reaching up behind him… INVERTED HEADLOCK BACKBREAKER CONNECTS FROM DEVAN DUBIAN! AND HE IMMEDIATELY TRANSITIONS THAT INTO A SNAP DDT! COVER FROM THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!
Pierre: BUT KICKOUT FROM THE HEART BREAK BOY! Devan Dubian is not pleased to see that, and he pulls The Heart Break Boy up, and he hooks him in… DUBIAN IS LOOKING FOR A SWINGING NECKBREAKER! BUT THE HEART BREAK BOY SPINS OUT OF IT! HE IS BEHIND THE AMAZING EMIR! AND HE HOOKS HIM IN… THE HEART BREAK BOY WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX TO DEVAN DUBIAN! The Heart Break Boy rolls over to his feet, maintaining that grip… ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! He gets to his feet once more, balancing himself out… AND A THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS! THE THREE AMIGOS EXECUTED FLAWLESSLY! Devan is laying out on his back, visibly shaken and groggy, and The Heart Break Boy looks up at the corner nearby… AND HE STARTS ASCENDING UP THE TURNBUCKLES!
Cherish: The Heart Break Boy is at the top turnbuckle now, standing and keeping his balance… He looks down at the champion… AND THE HEART BREAK BOY LEAPS! HEART! BREAK! ELBOW! THE SIGNATURE DIVING ELBOW DROP FROM THE TOP ROPE! BUT DEVAN DUBIAN ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND THE HEART BREAK BOY CRASHES INTO THE MAT! HIS ELBOW JUST ATE THE CANVAS RAW! WAIT! WAIT! DEVAN DUBIAN HURRIES OVER TO THE ACHING HEART BREAK BOY! AND HE GRABS THAT ARM! AND LOOK AT THIS! DEVAN DUBIAN LOCKS IN A CROSSFACE SUBMISSION! HE IS PULLING BACK ON THAT FACE AND ARM, SENDING SHOCKS OF PAIN ALL OVER THE HEART BREAK BOY! DEVAN DUBIAN HAS HIM LOCKED IN THIS SUBMISSION HOLD COMPLETELY!
Pierre: BUT THE HEART BREAK BOY STARTS CRAWLING! HE DOES NOT HAVE TO GO TOO FAR TO REACH THE ROPES… Pain is an issue, as every time he extends his free arm to advance towards the ropes, that leaves his other arm and neck to be stretched by Dubian’s submission… He only has a few more inches to go… AND DUBIAN STANDS UP AND PULLS HIM BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! BUT WAIT! HE LET GO OF HIS GRIP TOO MUCH AS THE HEART BREAK BOY PULLS BACK AND KIPS UP TO HIS FEET! AND THE HEART BREAK BOY WITH A GOLDPRINT! GOLDPRINT! A SUPERKICK RIGHTO THE FACE OF DEVAN DUBIAN! BUT DEVAN CATCHES HIS FOOT! Devan spins him around…. AND DUBIAN LAYS HIM INTO THE MAT WITH A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! HE COVERS THE HEART BREAK BOY!
Cherish: STILL NOT ENOUGH TO TAKE DOWN THE GOLDEN BOY! Devan Dubian’s frustration is increasing, I am sure, but he is not giving in yet. He starts driving right and left hands into the face of The Heart Break Boy over and over again, connecting with various elbow smashes and forearm smashes occasionally… Dubian pulls the challenger up to his feet, leaning him against the ropes… AND DEVAN DUBIAN GOES FOR ANOTHER DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! BUT THE HEART BREAK BOY DUCKS UNDERNEATH! HE HOOKS HIM IN AND HOISTS HIM UP! URANAGE BACKBREAKER FROM THE GOLDEN BOY! THIS IS WHAT THE HEART BREAK BOY NEEDED! SOME MOMENTUM! He whips Devan Dubian into the ropes… AND HIP TOSS CONNECTS! He runs off the ropes, bouncing back towards the prone Dubian… AND HIGH KNEE DROP TO THE FACE CONNECTS! Devan Dubian is struggling to get to his feet, and is on all fours right now….
Pierre: AND THE HEART BREAK BOY WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! I AM PRETTY SURE I JUST SAW A TOOTH FLY! The Heart Break pulls up Devan, leaning him in the corner as he moves over towards him… CHEST CHOP! ANOTHER! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! The Heart Break Boy takes a step back… AND HE FINISHES OFF THE SEQUENCE WITH A PICTURE PERFECT DROPKICK! Devan Dubian comes stumbling out of the corner as The Heart Break Boy stands and waits.. AND HE SENDS A KICK TO THE FACE OF DUBIAN! GOLDPRINT! GOLDPRINT SUPERKICK CONNECTS AND DUBIAN FALLS DOWN INTO THE MAT! THE HEART BREAK BOY COVERS!
ONE!……….. TWO!…………. T—
Cherish: BUT THE CHAMPION KICKS OUT! HE GETS A SHOULDER UP AND THE HEART BREAK BOY CANNOT BELIEVE IT! The Heart Break Boy immediately rolls over on top of Dubian and starts driving more of those right hands into his face, definitely irritated with the resiliency of our champion! The Heart Break Boy pulls Devan Dubian up to his feet, and whips him into the ropes… AND THE HEART BREAK BOY WITH A BACK BODY DROP THAT SENDS HIM RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS! Devan is trying to use the ropes to help assist himself in getting back to his fee—AND THE HEART BREAK BOY WITH A KNEE RIGHT TO THE MIDSECTION OF THE CHAMPION! The Heart Break Boy hooks him in… AND HE SNAPS BACK WITH A PICTURE PERFECT SNAP SUPLEX! Dubian is struggling to chain together any trace of momentum, and The Heart Break Boy saunters over top of him, pulling him up to his feet in an instance… HE HOOKS HIM IN! AND HE HOISTS HIM UP…. THE HEART BREAK BOY IS LOOKING FOR THAT BRAINBUSTER! BRAINBUSTER!
Pierre: WAIT! NO! DEVAN DUBIAN SLIPS OUT! AND HOOKS HIS HEAD UNDERNEATH THE ARM OF THE HEART BREAK BOY AND PULLS BACK! OLYMPIC SLAM! OLYMPIC SLAM CONNECTS AS BOTH MEN ARE LYING ON THE MAT, COMPLETELY OUT OF IT! WHAT A MATCH BETWEEN THESE TWO, JUST TRADING BLOWS IN HOPES OF SECURING MOMENTUM FOR THEMSELVES! Devan Dubian looks to finally be getting to his feet, slowly but surely he is making his way up using the ropes for assistance… The Heart Break Boy can barely manage to roll over onto his stomach at this point… Devan Dubian is now up, staring down at the grounded Heart Break Boy… AND HE MARCHES OVER! HE PULLS HIM UP TO HIS FEET, AND HOOKS HIM INTO A SIDE HEADLOCK… SNAP DDT CONNECTS!
Cherish: AND DEVAN PULLS HIM UP ONCE AGAIN… AND EUROPEAN UPPERCUT CONNECTS AS HE STAGGERS BACK, BARELY STANDING! Dubian runs off the ropes… AND THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPION CONNECTS WITH A LEAPING BULLDOG! HE SIMPLY DRIVES HIS FACE INTO THE MAT WITHOUT ANY CARE! Dubian rolls out of the ring, yanking the Heart Break Boy out as well, and he grabs his arm… AND HE IRISH WHIPS HIM RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS AS HE FLIES OVER THEM, DISASSEMBLING THEM IN THE PROCESS! DUBIAN HAS SNAPPED AND HE IS SHOWING IT! Devan makes his way to The Heart Break Boy and begins unloading stomps all over the gut and torso of him, and he pulls him up to his feet, leaning him against the apron… AND HE KICKS HIM IN THE GUT, AND HE HOOKS HIM IN! HE IS LOOKING FOR A SNAP DDT ONTO THE BROKEN STEEL STEPS!
Pierre: BUT THE HEART BREAK BOY WITH A SENSE OF URGENCY! HE HOISTS UP DEVAN DUBIAN… AND DROPS HIM ON HIS KNEE WITH AN ATOMIC DROP! The referee is at a five count, and The Heart Break Boy lifts up Devan Dubian, holding him over his shoulder… AND HE BODYSLAMS HIM RIGHT ONTO THE APRON! THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING, THAT HAS TO ABSOLUTELY KILL! The Heart Break Boy shoves Devan Dubian farther into the ring, and he hops up on the apron and begins to ascend to the top rope… Dubian is laying down below him, not showing much movement at all… AND THE HEART BREAK BOY DROPS AND LEAPS! SPLIT LEGGED MOONSAULT FROM THE GOLDEN BOY CONNECTS AS HE HOOKS THE LEGS!
ONE!……….. TWO!………. THR—-
Cherish: BUT DEVAN DUBIAN KICKS OUT AGAIN! THE HEART BREAK BOY CANNOT BELIEVE IT! Devan Dubian is using the middle ropes to pull himself up to his feet, and The Heart Break Boy takes a few steps back… He begins warming up that leg and stomping on the mat, wanting to desperately imprint some gold onto the champion… Dubian is pulling himself to his feet using the top rope now… AND THE HEART BREAK BOY STEPS OVER! HE KICKS! GOLDPRINT! GOLDPRINT! BUT DEVAN DUBIAN BAITED HIM PERFECTLY! HE TAKES A STEP BACK AND THE HEART BREAK BOY HAS HIS LEG CAUGHT ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! HE IS TRYING TO GET IT OFF, BUT DEVAN DUBIAN IS TOO QUICK! HE LEAPS! BLEEDING EDGE CUTTER CONNECTS! BLEEDING EDGE CUTTER CONNECTS PERFECTLY AS THE HEART BREAK BOY DROPS AND DEVAN DUBIAN HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
ONE!………… TWO!…………. THREE!………..
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“This Means War” by Avenged Sevenfold hits as Devan Dubian rolls out of the ring, grabbing his championship from a referee and holding it up in the air as he begins to backtrack up the ramp.)
RIng Announcer: And your winner, via pinfall… and STILL EAW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION… DEVANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN DUBIIIIIIIIIANNNNNNNNNN!!!!
Pierre: AND DEVAN DUBIAN RETAINS! HE RETAINS THE CHAMPIONSHIP AFTER GOING TO WAR WITH THE HEART BREAK BOY! There were SO many moments in this match that I thought that either man had won it, but the other kicked out or escaped submission! I want to congratulate Dubian, but the real winner here is the great brand of SHOWDOWN! DEFEATING THE DISGUSTING DYNASTY SCUM ONCE AGAIN!
(The camera fixates itself on Devan Dubian posing with the EAW Hall of Fame Championship in the corner, while it then pans out to HBB leaned against the apron, clearly looking frustrated with himself, as the camera fades elsewhere…)
(The camera fades backstage to Max A. Million who’s standing in the interviewing section…)
Max A. Million: I hope you’re all enjoying your night thus far! We’ve had some pretty explosive matches tonight! But I’m joined here by—
(Cody Marshall steps into the scene, with the EAW New Breed Championship draped over his shoulder, he rips the microphone out of Max’s hand…)
Cody Marshall: Thank you, Brother Max! But that will be enough of your shenanigans!
(The New York crowd is loudly heard chanting “USA! USA! USA!” in the background, Marshall smiles as he goes to speak…)
Cody Marshall: This is only the FIRST step to a better EAW! Did any of you doubt me?! Did you look at the numbers for the poll? EVERYONE EXPECTED RYAN MARX… BUT THEY GOT THEIR AMERICAN HERO, CODY MARSHALL! I am your NEW BREED CHAMPION! But what? That’s not the end of my campaign? YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT IT AIN’T! NO! I ain’t goin’ to change this world by becoming a champion! I need to further my progress by becoming the SHOWDOWN GENERAL MANAGER! That’s when I can give my brother and sisters equal opportunities! I will raise the pay wage! I will bring justice to those who need it! Who are we when we let these foreigners reign over our company?! WE HAVE A GERMAN… YES, THAT’S RIGHT! A NAZI AS YOUR ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! DO YOU SENSE THE RISE OF HITLER? BECAUSE I DO!
(The crowd begins to chant “FUCK LANNISTER!” loudly, Cody pausing and raising the microphone in the air, before lowering the microphone down to his mouth)
Cody Marshall: DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE, MURROW? If Daniels doesn’t win that Answers World Championship! You best bet your damn ass that I’m going to! If Nico Borg doesn’t lose his title! MY BALD HEAD WILL OUTSHINE HIS! You have nowhere to hide, Murrow! Nowhere to run! You’re backed in a corner and “The Cody Campaign” will continue marching at your door front! This is only the BEGINNING of my ascension!
(Cody Marshall hands the microphone back to the interviewer, before walking off, and the camera transitions back into the Madison Square Garden…)

(A video recapping the rivalry between Nico Borg, Matt Ryder, and Rex McAllister plays…)
(Camera fades to the center of the ring where the ring announcer is standing, thousands of fans cheering on their feet)
Ring Announcer: This following match is a triple threat match scheduled for ONE FALL!!!… AND IT’S FOR THE EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPP!!!!…
(“You Are The Wilderness” by Voxhaul Broadcast plays throughout the arena, as a loud New York crowd explodes into cheers for a familiar face, Matt Ryder jogs onto the stage, raising his fist in the air, smiling, as the crowd chants “WOO! WOO! WOO!”, he makes his way down to the ring)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from LOOOOONG ISLAND, NEW YOOOOOOORKKKKK!!!!… WEIGHING IN AT 225 POOOOOOOOOOOUNDDSSSSS!!!… MAAAATTTTTTTTTTT RYYYYYYYYYDDDDDEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Cherish: AND HERE’S ONE OF THE FEW HOMETOWN BOYS THAT ARE RECEIVING SUCH A WARM WELCOME TO HIS NEW YORK CROWD! Matt Ryder literally craves this title more than anything right now! It could help jumpstart the redemption era of his career! He’s been doing quite well since cutting his ties with former friend, Matt Miles, but this could really prove that he was the better of the two!
Pierre: I think these fans would break the Madison Square Garden down with their thunder-like cheers if he won! I don’t think anything will keep them from showing their love and support for Matt Ryder tonight! It could honestly assist him in winning this match!
(Matt Ryder slides into the ring, taunting toward the crowd, as “You Are The Wilderness” cuts, the crowd continues with a loud “WOO WOO WARRIOR!” chant)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent…
(“Burn In My Light” by Mercy Drive blares throughout the arena, as Rex McAllister pushes himself through the curtains, as the fans give him a rather loud reaction as well, he focuses on the ring as he makes his way down to it…)
Ring Announcer: From Sea Isle, New Jersey, weighing in 238 POOOOOOOOUNNNNNDSSSSS!!!… “THE REX MASTER” REEEEEEEEEEEEXXXXXX MCCCCCCAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSTEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
Pierre: AND HERE COMES MY PERSONAL FAVORITE FOR THE MATCH! Rex McAllister having a fairly short reign with the New Breed Champion, seeks out to redeem that short reign by winning the National Elite Championship! But he has a long road ahead of him! He’s up against two of some of the most driven wrestlers on Showdown today! Picking up this win would surely impress everyone watching all around!
Cherish: He wasn’t going to let Matt Ryder straight up challenge for the National Elite Championship either! He’s wedged himself into this match and that could play an important factor in this triple threat! It could also be his utter demise, having to be aware of where two opponents are the entire match! We’ll see though!
(“Mercy Drive” fades, as Rex McAllister enters the ring through the middle rope, watching Matt Ryder’s every movement, as he backs into his own corner…)
Ring Announcer: And introducing last…
(“You Want It Darker” by Leonard Cohen plays, as Nico Borg steps onto the stage wearing black and white attire, the fans explode with loud boos, as he only smiles, gripping onto his EAW National Elite Championship as he makes his way down to the ring)
Ring Announcer: From Valetta, Malta, weighing in at 196 POOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUNNNNNDSSSS!!!… HE IS THE REIGNING EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOONNNN!!!!… “THE MALTESE FALCON” NICOOOOOOOOOOO BOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!
Pierre: AND THE FINAL MAN TO ENTER THIS TRIPLE THREAT! THE CHAMPION HIMSELF, NICO BORG! And he’s been by far one of the most dominant National Elite Champions since cashing in his 24/7 Contract in on The Pizza Boy! Not to mention that each of these men might just meet each other again in the Gold Rush Tournament… Nico Borg could retain his title, win Gold Rush, and become dual champion! Wouldn’t that be something?
Cherish: He has a windy road to get there though! The odds are certainly not in his favor to win tonight, BUT he could do the impossible! It hasn’t stopped anyone before! Nico Borg has certainly turned several heads, but we’ll see if he can keep all eyes on him…
(“You Want It Darker” cuts out, as Nico Borg raises his EAW National Elite Championship, but then hands it over to the referee, who shows it to the other two competitors, then to the crowd, and hands it to the timekeeper, checks on all three, then calls for the bell…)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Pierre: AND REX MCALLISTER RUNS! DOUBLE DROPKICK TO BOTH NICO BORĠ AND MATT RYDER! THE MOMENTUM FROM LAST WEEK IS ROLLING RIGHT INTO THIS MATCH! Rex pulls Ryder up and leans him in the corner… AND CHEST CHOP! ANOTHER! A THIRD! He takes a step back… AND REX WITH A LEAPING BUZZSAW KICK TO THE JAW OF MATT RYDER! Ryder stumbles out of the corner, and Rex turns his attention over to Nico Borġ… AND HE CHARGES AT THE CHAMPION WHO IS LEANING IN THE CORNER! CARTWHEEL CORNER SPLASH! BUT NICO BORĠ STEPS AWAY AND REX MCALLISTER CRASHES INTO THE CORNER! He stumbles back as Nico waits behind him… AND NICO BORĠ WITH A BACK SUPLEX! Nico rolls over onto his feet, shaking his head in shame at Rex McAllis–MATT RYDER WITH A RUNNING FOREARM SMASH TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! AND NOW RYDER IS DRIVING RIGHT HANDS INTO NICO BORĠ, FORCING HIM INTO THE CORNER! Ryder is now driving knees into the gut of Borġ over and over, weakening that midsection as he takes a step back, and he pulls Nico into a side headlock… RYDER IS LOOKING FOR A SNAP DDT! WAIT! REX MCALLISTER LEAPS UP BEHIND HIM! AND REX MCALLISTER WITH A LEAPING NECKBREAKER TO RYDER AND RYDER PULLS NICO DOWN WITH HIM! THE DDT CONNECTS AS WELL! WHAT A COMBINATION FROM REX MCALLISTER!
Cherish: INDEED! Rex McAllister gets up and charges at the ropes… AND HE LEAPS! LIONSAULT OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE! AND REX LANDS ON MATT RYD–NO! MATT RYDER WITH THE DOUBLE KNEES! Rex McAllister is leaning over, holding his gut as Ryder pulls himself up using the ropes… AND RYDER CHARGES! RUNNING KNEE TO THE SIDE OF REX MCALLISTER’S HEAD! AND HE SENDS A STOMP ONTO THE BACK OF NICO BORĠ’S HEAD IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS! Ryder hooks Rex McAllister in… AND MATT RYDER IS LOOKING FOR THAT DOUBLE UNDERHOOK SITOUT FACEBUSTER! BUT REX MCALLISTER SPINS BEHIND HIM! AND REX IS LOOKING FOR THE FALLAWAY SLAM! BUT RYDER SPINS OUT! AND RYDER WITH A LEAPING DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER! WHAT AN EXCHANGE BETWEEN THESE TWO! Rex McAllister stumbles forward, leaning against the ropes… AND RYDER CHARGES! BUT NICO BORĠ WITH A DROP TOE HOLD AND RYDER FALLS FORWARD! HE FALLS RIGHT INTO A DROPKICK FROM REX MCALLISTER! RYDER JUST GOT NAILED, AND NOT IN THE GOOD WAY! Ryder rolls over towards the apron as Rex McAllister stares at Nico Borġ, who gets to his feet…
Pierre: AND THEY LOCK UP! Nico transitions into a rear waist lock, but Rex throws enough elbows at the side of his head to loosen that grip, and now he spins behind him, applying a rear waist lock of his own… AND MCALLISTER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! BEAUTIFULLY EXECUTED BY THE REX MASTER! McAllister gets to his feet, moving over towards Nico, and he pulls him u—NICO BORĠ SUDDENLY CHARGES AND TACKLES MCALLISTER INTO THE CORNER! AND NOW HE IS STARTING TO UNLOAD SHOULDER THRUST AFTER SHOULDER THRUST INTO HIS MIDSECTION! Nico Borġ takes a step back, waiting for Rex McAllister to stumble out… AND NICO BORĠ WITH A THUNDEROUS UPPERCUT! He pulls Rex in, hooking that arm… AND NICO BORĠ WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! He rolls over onto his knees, and begins driving right hands into the face of McAll–MATT RYDER WITH A RUNNING KICK TO THE SIDE OF HIS FACE! DRIVEBY, HOMIE! Ryder pulls Nico Borġ up, and hooks him in… AND RYDER BODYSLAMS NICO BORĠ RIGHT INTO THE GUT OF REX MCALLISTER! TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE!
Cherish: Ryder lifts up Nico Borġ, leaning him in the corner, and now he turns his attention to McAllister… AND HE PULLS MCALLISTER UP, AND HE WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER VICIOUSLY! AND MCALLISTER AND BORĠ COLLIDE IN ABSOLUTE AGONY! Rex bounces back, but right into the arms of Ryder who connects with a picture perfect reverse atomic drop! Ryder takes a step back, looking at his two enemies… AND HE CHARGES! RYDER WITH A RUNNING KNEE IN THE CORNER! He grabs ahold of Nico’s head… AND HE RUNS OUT OF THE CORNER! AND HE LEAPS FOR A BULLDOG! BUT DURING HIS LEAP HE CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK TO THE FACE OF REX MCALLISTER AS WELL! WHAT VETERAN SKILL FROM RYDER HERE, PIERRE! RYDER HOOKS THE LEG OF NICO BORĠ, LOOKING TO SECURE THE VICTORY!
Pierre: BUT THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION IS NOT GOING DOWN THAT EASILY! Ryder rolls out of the ring, and he yanks Nico Borġ out as well by his arm… Ryder leans Nico Borġ against the barricade, and he takes a step back… AND MATT RYDER IS LOOKING FOR A LEAPING LEG LARIAT! A LEAPING LEG LARIAT THAT WOULD SEND BORĠ OVER THE BARRICADE AND BOTH OF THEM INTO THE CROWD! HE GOES! HE LEAPS! AND… AND NICO BORĠ CATCHES HIM! NICO BORĠ HAS MATT RYDER ON HIS SHOULDERS, DISPLAYING THAT UNDERVALUED STRENGTH HE POSSESSES… AND HE MARCHES FORWARD! AND HE POWERBOMBS MATT RYDER RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS! OH MY LORD! THE WAY THAT MATT RYDER’S SPINE FOLDED OVER THE TOP OF THOSE STEPS WAS GRUESOME! SICKENING! I CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT I JUST S—REX MCALLISTER RUNS OFF THE ROPES! AND MCALLISTER TAKES NICO BORĠ OUT WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! THIS MATCH IS INSANE! McAllister flips up the apron, and he reaches down… AND THE REX MASTER HAS A KENDO STICK! THIS IS NO DISQUALIFICATION FOLKS! Rex is staring at his two opponents…
Cherish: AND REX MCALLISTER CONNECTS WITH A SWING TO THE BACK OF RYDER! AND NOW ONE TO THE BACK OF NICO! AND ANOTHER TO RYDER! ONE MORE FOR BORĠ! RYDER! BORĠ! RYDER! BORĠ! AND HE SWINGS AGAIN AT RY–RYDER CATCHES THE STICK! BUT HE IS TOO WEAK AT THE MOMENT AND REX JUST KICKS HIM IN THE GUT! McAllister pulls Ryder in, hooking him in… AND MCALLISTER LEVELS MATT RYDER WITH A SNAP DDT! PERFECTLY EXECUTED! McAllister gets up, turning his attention to Nico Bo–NICO WITH A SUPERKICK! THE ECHO OF THAT KICK BOOMED THROUGHOUT THE ARENA, I SWEAR! Nico pulls McAllister in closer, and he is smashing his face into the apron over and over! The champion just pushes McAllister’s face into the apron… AND HE TAKES OFF! HE RUNS DOWN THE SIDE OF THE RING WITH REX’S FACE PINNED AGAINST THE APRON! THAT HAS TO BURN SO HORRIDLY BAD! I CANNOT IMAGIN—REX MCALLISTER PUTS HIS FOOT OUT TO STOP HIMSELF FROM BEING DRIVEN INTO THE CORNER POST! AND NOW AN ELBOW TO NICO’S GUT! ANOTHER! A THIRD! BUT IT IS NO GOOD AS NICO BORĠ HEADBUTTS REX MCALLISTER AND SENDS HIM REELING… AND NOW HE DRIVES HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE CORNER POST! HERE COMES THE BLOOD FROM REX’S NOSE!
Pierre: NICO BORĠ IS ON A ROLL! Nico pulls Rex McAllister back, and he pulls him between his legs… NICO BORĠ IS LOOKING FOR THAT LAST RITES! THE LAST RITES FINISHIN–MATT RYDER SWINGS THAT KENDO STICK UP BETWEEN NICO BORĠ’S LEGS! AND MATT RYDER SPRINGS UP AND GRABS NICO FROM BEHIND…. Borġ drops Rex McAllister as Ryder pulls him back… AND MATT RYDER WITH AN EXPLODER GERMAN SUPLEX THAT SENDS NICO BORĠ CRASHING THROUGH THE BARRICADE! OH MY LORD, CHERISH! THAT WAS KILLER LIKE MY SEX GAME, GIRL! Ryder moves over towards Rex McAllister and he drags him over towards our announcer table… AND HE STARTS SLAMMING MCALLISTER’S FACE INTO THE MONITORS OVER AND OVER AGAIN! THAT IS BROKEN GLASS GOING INTO THE FACE OF REX MCALLISTER POTENTIALLY! Ryder takes a step back, and he drops McAllister to the ground… AND RYDER IS TAKING APART THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! HE IS LEAVING THE BASE OF THE TABLE EXPOSED, AND I BET YOU ANYTHING THAT HE PLANS ON PUTTING A CERTAIN REX MASTER THROUGH IT!
Cherish: I BET YOU ARE RIGHT, PIERRE! Matt Ryder takes a step back, and he pulls up the body of Rex McAllis—AND REX MCALLISTER HEADBUTTS HIS GROIN! THAT SIGNATURE HEADBUTT TO THE GROIN! AND MATT RYDER ANGRILY SWINGS A WINDED RIGHT HAND! AND REX MCALLISTER DUCKS RIGHT UNDERNEATH IT! AND HE HOOKS RYDER IN FROM BEHIND! OH MY GOD! FALLAWAY SLAM! FALLAWAY SLAM THROUGH OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! AND IT CONNECTS! IT CONNECTS AS REX AND RYDER FALL THROUGH THE TABLE AND NEITHER MAN IS MOVING! THIS IS WHAT EAW LIVES FOR! THIS BEAUTIFUL EXTREME DETERMINATION! I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT REX MCALLISTER CAPITALIZED ON SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY! Speaking of capitalizing, Nico Borġ is stumbling over towards the mess… WHAT? HE LIFTS UP RYDER AND LAYS HIM ACROSS THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE! HE IS NOT EVEN TAKING OFF THE MONITORS OR COVER! AND NICO BORĠ LOOKS OVER TOWARDS THE RING… AND HE SLIDES IN AND STARTS CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE! THIS MAN IS A MADMAN! NICO BORĠ, OUR MALTESE FALCON IS PERCHING HIMSELF UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE… REX IS DOWN ON THE GROUND, RYDER LAID ACROSS THE ANNOUNCE TABLE… AND THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION LEAPS FOR THE HEAVENS! LEAP OF FAITH! LEAP OF FAITH! FROG SPLASH ONTO RYDER AND THROUGH THE TABLE CONNECTS! OH MY GOD! MATT RYDER HAS GONE THROUGH TWO TABLES AND ALL THREE MEN ARE LAYING ON THE GROUND, ABSOLUTELY DEAD INSIDE! THEY ARE GIVING THIS THEIR ALL!
Pierre: Nico Borġ lifts his arm up, and he starts to push himself off of the ground and out of the debris… Meanwhile, Rex McAllister is slowly but surely getting to his feet as well… Nico Borġ and Rex McAllister are both standing, and they stare at each other on either side of Ryder’s prone, near-lifeless body… AND THEY SLOWLY MOVE TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER! AND REX WITH A RIGHT HAND! NICO WITH A RIGHT HAND! MCALLISTER WITH A LEFT! BORĠ WITH A LEFT! MCALLISTER WITH AN UP–NICO BORĠ KICKS HIM IN THE GUT! AND NOW HE IS LAYING IN THOSE OVERHAND STRIKES TO THE BACK OF REX MCALLISTER’S HEAD! Rex is starting to get worn down, and Nico Borġ pulls him up and rolls him into the ring, and he climbs up on the apron… Nico Borġ is gripping that top rope… AND BORĠ IS LOOKING TO LAUNCH HIMSELF INTO THE RING! AND HE DOES! NICO BORĠ WITH A SPRINGBOARD LEAP OF FAITH! A FROGSPLASH TO THE MIDSECTION OF MCALLISTER CONNECTS! IT CONNECTS AND BORĠ HOOKS BOTH THE LEGS!
Cherish: BUT REX MCALLISTER FORCES A SHOULDER UP! AND NICO BORĠ WASTES NO TIME AS HE ROLLS ON TOP OF HIM AND BEGINS DRIVING RIGHT AND LEFT HANDS INTO HIS FACE OVER AND OVER! Borġ steps back and gets to his feet… AND HE STARTS STOMPING ALL OVER THE GUT AND STERNUM OF REX MCALLISTER! NICO BORĠ IS TRYING TO LEVEL REX MCALLISTER LIKE A FLY UNDER A FLYSWATTER IF I WERE TO GUESS! Borġ pulls Rex up, leaning him in the corner as he takes a step back… AND NICO STEPS FORWARD! AND UP! STEP UP ENZUIGIRI! BUT REX MCALLISTER DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE KICK! AND HE PULLS NICO BORĠ IN… LIFTING WHEELBARROW SITOUT FACEBUSTER CONNECTS FROM REX MCALLISTER! AND MCALLISTER JUST PUT HIMSELF BACK IN THIS MATCH AGAIN! Ryder is still barely moving on the outside, and McAllister is looking to take advantage of this one-on-one time with Borġ! He drops an elbow into his sternum, and he gets up…. AND ANOTHER ELBOW DROP!… He gets up once more… ELBOW DROP ONCE AGAIN! AND MCALLISTER GETS TO HIS FEET AND HE TURNS AROUND… STANDING MOONSAULT CONNECTS AS HE DRIVES HIMSELF INTO THE MIDSECTION OF THE CHAMPION!
Pierre: McAllister pulls Nico Borġ up, and he positions him on his shoulders… AND REX MCALLISTER WITH A DROPPING FIREMAN’S CARRY KNEE FACEBUSTER! AND NOW HE PULLS NICO BORĠ IN AGAIN, GRABBING AROUND HIS WAIST… HE IS LOOKING FOR THAT SIGNATURE BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT NICO BORĠ THROWS AN ELBOW BACK! AND ANOTHER! A THIRD! AND REX MCALLISTER LOSES HIS GRIP AS NICO BORĠ PULLS AWAY FREE! Borġ bounces off the ropes… AND NICO GOES FOR A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! BUT REX MCALLISTER DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT! Nico Borġ turns arou—HE TURNS RIGHT INTO A PELE KICK FROM THE REX MCALLISTER! AND REX MCALLISTER GRABS AHOLD OF HIS HEAD, PULLING HIM INTO A HEADLOCK… AND REX MCALLISTER IS LOOKING TO USE THE ROPES FOR ASSISTANCE IN CATALYZING HIS REX EFFECT FINISHER! AND HE RUNS TOWARDS THE ROPES! HE LEAPS UP ON THE SECOND ROP—MATT RYDER SWINGS A STEEL CHAIR RIGHT INTO HIS FACE! WHERE DID RYDER COME FROM! WHAT IN THE WORLD! REX MCALLISTER STUMBLES BACK AND HE DROPS NICO BORĠ! Ryder grabs ahold of that top rope after sliding that chair into the ring… AND RYDER GOES SPRINGBOARD! LEAPING LEG LARIAT CONNECTS ON REX MCALLISTER AND HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS! RYDER GOING FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP!
ONE!……….. TWO!……….. TH—-
Cherish: BUT REX MCALLISTER KICKS OUT! HE MANAGES TO KICKOUT! MATT RYDER IS LOOKING TO THE HEAVENS FOR SOME SORT OF SIGN, BECAUSE HE CANNOT BELIEVE THAT REX MCALLISTER KICKED OUT! AND SPEAKING OF THE HEAVENS, NICO BORĠ IS ON HIS FEET AND HE FLIES AT RYDER WITH A LOW DROPKICK THAT CONNECTS RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! Ryder and Rex are both very weak on the ground, and Nico Borġ pulls both of them up…. AND NICO BORĠ HOOKS BOTH OF THEIR ARMS! AND NICO BORĠ PULLS BACK! HE IS TRYING TO SUPLEX BOTH OF THEM! THAT IS OVER 450 POUNDS AND HE DOES NOT EVEN WEIGH 200! BUT NICO BORĠ PULLS BACK… AND OH MY GOD! HE DOES IT! NICO BORĠ SUPLEXES BOTH RYDER AND MCALLISTER! I CANNOT BELIEVE THE STRENGTH THAT OUR NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION IS DISPLAYING TONIGHT! THIS IS SURREAL! AND NICO BORĠ RUNS! HE LEAPS OFF THE SECOND ROPE! AND NICO BORĠ GOES FOR A LIONSAULT OF HIS OWN!

Rex McAllister rolls over towards the apron, and Nico Borġ pulls Ryder up, leaning him against the ropes… AND NICO BORĠ CONNECTS WITH A STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI THAT ECHOES THROUGHOUT THE ARENA! Matt Ryder stumbles forwad… AND NICO BORĠ IS LEANED OVER FOR A BACK BODY DROP! BUT MATT RYDER KICKS HIM SQUARE IN THE FACE! AND MATT RYDER HOOKS NICO BORĠ IN! HE IS LOOKING FOR A LONG ISLAND LIFETIME! THE FINISHING REVERSE SWINGING STO! BUT NICO BORĠ SPINS OUT BEHIND RYDER! AND HE LIFTS RYDER UP! REVERSE ATOMIC DROP CONNECTS! Borġ runs off the ropes… AND HE GOES FOR THE MALTESE CROSS! THE AIR RAID CRASH! BUT RYDER STAYS ON HIS FEET! HE DOES NOT FALL BACK! AND HE CHUCKS NICO UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS… AND HE FLIPS HIM OVER ONTO HIS KNEE FOR AN ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL BACKBREAKER! Ryder now pulls Nico in… AND MATT RYDER IS LOOKING FOR THE LONG ISLAND LIFETIME NOW! THE LONG ISLAND LIFETIME, AND HE IS LINED UP TO DRIVE NICO RIGHT INTO THE STEEL CHAIR! I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS! RYDER SWIN—NO! REX MCALLISTER! REX MCALLISTER LAUNCHES INTO THE RING FROM THE APRON! SPRINGBOARD TORNADO DDT ONTO RYDER! HE CONNECTS WITH A REX EFFECT THAT DRIVES RYDER’S SKULL INTO THE STEEL CHAIR! AND RYDER MANAGED TO CONNECT WITH THE LONG ISLAND LIFETIME AT THE SAME TIME ONTO NICO BORĠ, BUT HE JUST ATE THAT CHAIR! RYDER AND NICO ARE BOTH NOT MOVING AND REX MCALLISTER HOOKS THE LEG OF RYDER!
ONE!………… TWO!…………. THREE!……
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Burn in my Light” by Mercy Drive plays as Rex McAllister lays back on the mat, having the EAW National Elite Championship laid across his chest and he lifts his fist into the air, emotional and exhausted.)
RIng Announcer: And your winner, via pinfall… AND NEW! EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION… REXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX MCALLLLLLLLLLISTERRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Cherish: REX MCALLISTER DID IT! HE JUST WON THE EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIP FROM NICO BORG! I CERTAINLY CANNOT BELIEVE IT! I DON’T THINK THE CROWD IS TOO PLEASED WITH HIM PINNING THEIR HOMETOWN BOY! BUT STILL! HE’S EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION!
Pierre: WOW! SO THAT’S THE SECOND TITLE TO CHANGE HANDS TONIGHT! Well, it looks like Lars Grier has found himself an opponent for Showdown: Gold Mine…
(Rex McAllister stands up from the canvas, raising the EAW National Elite Championship into the air with his left hand, and then proceeds to stand on the second rope, taunting toward the crowd with the title)
Cherish: He’s earned this moment! Nico Borg and Matt Ryder did EVERYTHING they possible could do to win this, but the sheer determination of Rex McAllister was far greater!
(Rex continues to pose with the title on the second rope, as the camera pans down to a recovering Nico Borg and Matt Ryder for a few moments, then back to the celebrating Rex McAllister, as the camera fades elsewhere…)
(The camera fades back to Ryan Marx backstage, tossing a chair across the room, he angrily looks around for more stuff to throw around in the hallway…)
Ryan Marx: How could I LOSE? To HIM… of all people.
(Cody tosses some papers off the desk, then runs his hands through his hair, before being approached by someone…)
???: Tsk, tsk, you will NEVER get your way like this.
(Ryan Marx raises his eyebrow, but his angered demeanor does not change)
Ryan Marx: What do YOU want?
(The camera pans over to reveal Athena Vendetta in a red dress, hair in a bun, and a smile on her face)
Athena Vendetta: Don’t mind me, Marx. I’m just doing Lannister’s work while he’s busy preparing for his match.
(Ryan Marx confusingly steps forward, looking at Athena very oddly)
Ryan Marx: Lannister’s work? What work does he have other than retaining his title?
Athena Vendetta: To scout, to scan, to find the threats — and eliminate them, or even recruit them. You seem like a promising young man, so don’t let one loss get you down.
(Athena nods her head, before walking away, Ryan Marx raises his eyebrows, rubbing his chin as he watches her walk away…)
Ryan Marx: This day couldn’t get any worse…
(Ryan Marx still a bit angered, walks off in the opposite direction, as the camera transitions back to the New York City crowd)
(The camera pans over the arena before switching to a shot focused on the titantron. https://i.imgur.com/viMlJu5.png appears on the screen and the fans rise out of their seats and applaud. A video package plays, recapping the history between Tiberius IV and The Pizza Boy as well as their respective matches at King of Elite and the recent few weeks. Video ends and the camera fades back to an overview of as the crowd grows in their cheers.)
Crowd: PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY!
Pierre: I’ve got goosebumps Cherish. This is something special.
(“Cowboy Story” by Faith No More hits and the unified chant turns to a cacophony of cheers as The Pizza Boy steps onto the stage focused but the focus gives way to a smile to the reaction from the crowd. He pauses and soaks in the atmosphere of Madison Square Garden before making his way to the ring)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first…FROM NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK!
(The crowd grows louder, nearly drowning out the music)
Ring Announcer: Weighing in at one hundred and seventy five pounds!! TTTTHHHEEEE PPPIIIIIIIIZZZZZZZAAAAAA BBBBOOOOYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cherish: WHAT AN INCREDIBLE RESPONSE. WHAT AN AMAZING ATMOSPHERE FOR THIS MAN. FOUGHT SO VALIANTLY AND OVERCAME ARES VENDETTA AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION. ECSTASY TURNED TO MISERY AND HE DESPERATELY TRIED TO RECAPTURE THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPSHIP AT KING OF ELITE. NOW TIBERIUS IV, THE KING OF ELITE WISHES TO STAND BETWEEN HIM AND HIS OWN SLICE OF REDEMPTION.
Pierre: The Pizza Boy has so much on the line tonight; victory MUST be his at any cost. His pride, his world title aspirations hang in the balance; you know without any doubt that our King will not allow him to get anywhere close to the champion.
(The Pizza Boy ascends to the second rope as “Cowboy Song” by Faith No More dies down. The roaring crowd remains as they continue to chant his name)
Cherish: The hometown boy; near every soul in the crowd behind The Pizza Boy…
(“The Mission” by Puscifer ft. Milla Jovovich hits but it’s immediately drowned out by a roar of boos and jeers. Tiberius IV steps out onto the stage decked in a golden attire with the King of Elite crown on his head. He arrogantly raises his arms and soaks in the negative reaction; he slowly walks down the ramp towards the ring)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, from Gaia! Weighing in at two hundred and thirteen pounds!!! THE 2017 KING OF ELITE!!!! THE KING!!!! OF!!!! THIEVES!!!!… TTTTIIIBBBBEEEEERRRRRRIIIIIUUUUUSSSSS IIIIIIIIVVVVVVVV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pierre: HAIL TO THE KING! The man that conquered the best that Dynasty and Voltage had to offer, the man who claimed the King of Elite crown! Tonight he wishes to add a jester to his court; The Pizza Boy has always been a pain in the man’s neck and the King desires to crush his hopes and dreams before his own fans!
Cherish: I can’t deny this man’s talent. He did the one thing nobody else in J-Dynasty has ever been able to do; he overcome two phenomenal, top tier talents here in EAW to become the King of Elite. He’s earned every right to carry that crown but to do this, to try and humiliate The Pizza Boy is going too far. But don’t think for a second that The Pizza Boy won’t fight until he’s got nothing left – not a drop, not even fumes left – to ensure he doesn’t become a jester to this man.
(Tiberius IV passes the ring and makes his way towards the timekeeper’s area. He removes the crown from his head and places it on a gold trim, velvet cushion on the table. Tiberius turns his attention back to the ring, slowly makes his way up the steps and steps through the ropes. The official pats both men down before making his way into the middle of the ring and calling for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Cherish: Ladies and gentlemen, what is most likely the final chapter between these two men is underway! Both remaining firmly in their respective corners as a “PIZZA BOY” chant continues to fill The Garden; the crowd well and truly behind their hometown hero. Tiberius shaking off the resounding chant as both men slowly approach the center of the ring; inaudible words being traded back and forth. For Tiberius, he wishes to make The Pizza Boy his jester; force him to kneel, to kiss his feet and swear fealty. For The Pizza Boy, he simply wishes to put Tiberius IV in the rear view mirror and turn his attention back to recapturing the Answers World Championship.
(The camera pans back to an overview shot of the arena with the crowd rising and their chanting getting louder)
Crowd: PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY!
Cherish: Listen to this crowd Pierre! Eighteen and a half thousand on their feet cheering on the Pizza Boy! It is THUNDEROUS in the world’s most famous arena!
Pierre: How dare they show such disrespect to the King! I always knew New Yorkers were low-born scum!
Cherish: And I think it’s finally starting to get under the skin of Tiberius IV. Frustration starting to set in, staring into the crowd and shaking his head! The Pizza Boy simply smirking — AND TIBERIUS FIRES AWAY WITH A STIFF RIGHT HOOK! NOW PIZZA BOY FIRES BACK! TIBERIUS RETALIATES! BOTH MEN TRADING SHOTS TO OPEN THIS CONTEST BACK AND FORTH! TIBERIUS! PIZZA BOY! TIBERIUS! PIZZA BOY! THE CROWD JEERING EVERY SHOT THAT TIBERIUS LANDS, ERUPTING IN CHEERS FOR EVERY PUNCH THE PIZZA BOY THROWS. AND IT’S THE PIZZA BOY WITH THE UPPER HAND! HE BLOCKS A WILD ATTEMPT BY THE KING OF ELITE AND ROCKS HIM WITH ANOTHER RIGHT FIST. A SECOND AND A THIRD! Pizza Boy backs Tiberius back onto the ropes; Tiberius ducks under the top rope to demands the official to step in and intervene!
Pierre: This crowd simply won’t die down! The Pizza Boy is feeding off their energy; he has so much at stake in this contest. His pride, his freedom is at stake as Tiberius pulls away from the ropes and Pizza Boy backs off to the other side of the ring. Slowly they begin to pace around the squared circle, their eyes fixated on one another waiting for the other to make the first move! PIzza Boy begins to pick up the pace and move closer to Tiberius! Tiberius steps away from the ropes and both men lock up dead center of the ring in a collar and elbow tie up! Tiberius quickly drops to a knee and shoots back up, floating around the back The Pizza Boy; waist lock go behind locked in. Pizza Boy immediately acts to break the lock, clutching the left wrist of Tiberius IV and pushing it away! He creates separation and manages to apply a wristlock! Twisting the arm into an uncomfortable position for Tiberius; Pizza Boy sweeps behind and transitions into a hammerlock! The pressure shooting from the wrist up to the shoulder as Tiberius begins to fight out of it!
Cherish: The Pizza Boy pulling the pace of the contest to his desired speed. Tiberius fighting out of it, fires away with a stiff elbow to the jaw! Pizza Boy’s grip loosens and Tiberius transitions into a wrist lock of his own! Pizza Boy rolls through however and shoots back to his feet! He whips Tiberius across the ring and swings for a Lariat! But it misses as Tiberius ducks and rebounds; Pizza Boy turns and Tiberius connects with a running enzugri! Tiberius quickly crawls into the cover!
Pierre: The crowd has certainly settled down. Tiberius rises back to his feet, Pizza Boy tries to scramble to his but Tiberius clutches a handful of hair! He drags him in and connects with a knee to the mid section and fires away with multiple forearms to the upper back of The Pizza Boy! Tiberius drags Pizza Boy towards the ropes; he Irish whips him across to the other side but Pizza Boy pumps the breaks and wraps his arms around the top rope! Tiberius charges and Pizza Boy with the high elevation lift over the top rope! But Tiberius manages to clutch the top rope and land on the ring apron! Pizza Boy turns and Tiberius connects with a forearm strike! PIZZA BOY FIRES AWAY WITH ONE OF HIS OWN, JARRING SHOT THAT KNOCKS TIBERIUS OFF THE APRON! PIZZA BOY DARTS ACROSS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING, TIBERIUS IS RISING TO HIS FEET ON THE OUTSIDE UNAWARE! SUICIDE DIVE BY THE PIZZA BOY! NO! HE PULLS UP SHORT AS TIBERIUS READIES HIMSELF FOR A COLLISION! TAUNTING THE KING OF ELITE TO RE-ENTER THE RING AND THAT HAS SENT THE CROWD BACK UP IN A ROAR OF CHEERS!
Cherish: And that’s exactly what Tiberius does! He races back into the ring and charges towards The Pizza Boy! But The Pizza Boy uses Tiberius’ speed against him and dumps him through the ropes back to the outside of the ring! Tiberius hit the ring apron hard and crashed on the floor in front of us– PIZZA BOY AGAIN REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE! THIS TIME IT CONNECTS AND BOTH MEN COLLIDE WITH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! The Pizza Boy rises back to his feet first, clutching his lower back with one arm and raises his other into the air as again, the ruckus crowd roars in approval! As you said Pierre, this man is feeding off the energy of the crowd! Pulling out all the stops, throwing caution to the wind! I don’t think Tiberius IV was expecting this at all from his opponent here tonight! Pizza Boy drags Tiberius back to his feet and rolls him back inside the ring before the official can start the ten count! Tiberius immediately rolls away and tries to climb back to his feet but Pizza Boy is there to cut him off and take him back down with a snapmare. BASEMENT DROPKICK! Pizza Boy immediately follow it up with a low dropkick to the back of the head to the seated opponent and he makes the cover!
Pierre: Tiberius manages to get the shoulder up just before the count of two and his first instinct is to roll back outside the ring; create some separation between him and The Pizza Boy, to weather this incredible storm here tonight at Reasonable Doubt. Tiberius, clearly frustrated on the outside; almost a sense of pure hate as he stares into the crowd that has once again come back to life in favour of their hometown man. Tiberius pulls himself back onto the ring apron and slowly steps through the ropes, pleading for the official to hold Pizza Boy back and the official does just that! Tiberius renters the ring – Pizza Boy brushes past the referee AND TIBERIUS RAKES THE EYES! HE SUCKERED THE PIZZA BOY IN AND DUG THE NAILS INTO THE EYES. The crowd’s cheers have turned to absolute jeers as in a split second, Tiberius has turned the tide of the contest in his favour and gained the upperhand! The Pizza Boy backs himself into the corner and Tiberius quickly acts, connecting with the Shoryuken! The running uppercut connects and The Pizza Boy comes reeling out of the corner, stumbling down to a knee; still clearly bothered by the rake. Pizza Boy tries to scramble back to his feet but Tiberius cuts him back down with a low dropkick to the back of the knee! The Pizza Boy wails in pain as he clutches the knee almost instantly!
Cherish: The cocky and arrogant grin returns to the face of Tiberius IV as the crowd makes their displeasures well known. Pizza Boy quickly rolls away to the ropes and begins to try and pull himself back to a vertical base but Tiberius swoops in and assists him – only to launch him back towards the corner and immediately follows it up with a second Shoryuken! Again Pizza Boy comes stumbling out of the corner, he’s out on his feet as Tiberius spins him back around — FLAPJACK! GOOD LORD THE FLAPJACK ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE CONNECTS! THE WHIPLASH AS THE PIZZA BOY’S SKULL BOUNCED OFF THE PADDING! But The Pizza Boy remains on his feet and staggers back towards the center of the ring! Tiberius darts across the ring and races back to connect with a stiff Lariat! Tiberius IV licking his lips as he watches The Pizza Boy stir on the canvas, trying to will himself on and fight back into the contest. Tiberius drags The Pizza Boy back to his feet and swiftly connects with a knee to the mid section! The Pizza Boy tries to fire back with an open palm strike the chest but it does little to phase the Komodo Dragon. Tiberius again with the knee to the ribs and pulls him in with the double underhook! Tiberius twists and hoists The Pizza Boy onto his back upside down! LOOKING FOR THE BACK TO BACK UNDERHOOK PILEDRIVER! AND PIZZA BOY QUICKLY BEGINS TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! TRYING TO DRIVE THE HEEL OF HIS BOOT INTO THE FACE OF TIBERIUS IV! TIBERIUS STRUGGLING TO HOLD PIZZA BOY UP AND THE PIZZA BOY MANAGES TO SHIFT HIS WEIGHT AND GET BOTH FEET ON THE GROUND. TIBERIUS TRIES TO LIFT PIZZA BOY BACK UP ONTO HIS BACK BUT THE PIZZA BOY SHIFTS HIS WEIGHT AND TWISTS OUT OF IT! BATTERING RAM! THE PIZZA BOY DRIVES HIS SKULL INTO THE CHEST OF TIBERIUS IV!
Pierre: Tiberius falters backwards as The Pizza Boy desperately tries to shake the cobwebs and regain his focus. Tiberius races back and tries to connect with a low dropkick! But Pizza Boy steps out of the way and drops the knee across the chest! But Tiberius manages to telegraph it and roll away; the knee crashing into the canvas. Both men shoot back to their feet, The Pizza Boy slightly on his haunches. Tiberius darts towards The Pizza Boy but Pizza Boy counters with an armdrag! BUT HE KEEPS HOLD OF THE WRIST! PIZZA BOY RISES BACK TO HIS FEET AND WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND THE WAIST OF TIBERIUS LOOKING FOR A GERMAN! BUT TIBERIUS BLOCKS IT AND FIRES AWAY WITH AN ELBOW FLUSH ON THE JAW. THE PIZZA BOY REFUSING TO RELEASE, TIBERIUS AGAIN FIRES AWAY AND CONNECTS. TIBERIUS BREAKS THE WAIST LOCK AND FLOATS BEHIND; TIBERIUS LOCKS IN THE FULL NELSON AND SWIFTLY CONNECTS WITH A HIGH ANGLE DRAGON SUPLEX! SPIKING THE PIZZA BOY ON HIS SKULL; PIZZA BOY’S SHOULDERS SLUMP TO THE CANVAS AND TIBERIUS HOLDS THE BRIDGE FOR THE PIN!
Cherish: Incredible that The Pizza Boy wasn’t concussed! But he gets the shoulder up and Tiberius gives him zero reprieve. Tiberius clutches the left leg of The Pizza Boy, twisting it around and wrapping it around his own; driving the full weight of his body down on the knee and The Pizza Boy immediately shows discomfort. Twisting the leg further around, more uncomfortable pressure being applied. Tiberius systematically picking apart The Pizza Boy, rising back to his feet and driving the battered knee back to the canvas! He’s in complete control of this contest and he absolutely knows it. Tiberius drags The Pizza Boy to his feet and towards the ropes. Tiberius once again clutches the left leg and steps through the ropes; The Pizza Boy pleading AND TIBERIUS CONNECTS WITH THE DRAGON SCREW! THE KNEE BEING TWISTED IN AN UNGODLY FASHION! THE PIZZA BOY COLLAPSES BACK TO THE CANVAS – TIBERIUS WASTES NO TIME AND SWIFTLY CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE! SWANTON BOMB! TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTEEN POUNDS CRASHING DOWN UPON THE PIZZA BOY! The Pizza Boy squirms on the canvas as Tiberius slowly rises back to his feet.
(Tiberius drives his boot across the face of The Pizza Boy and holds it down to the canvas)
Tiberius IV (No Mic): You will certainly make a fine Jester…
Pierre: You can’t wipe the smile from the face of our King! The Pizza Boy’s fire has been extinguished – for now at least – and this crowd can’t stand it! Tiberius just soaking in the negative reaction as he fires away with shoot kicks to various limbs of The Pizza Boy! The arms, the ribs, the stomach, the legs, the back. Whatever is exposed, Tiberius is simply connecting with kicks and stomps. The Pizza Boy tries to sit back up and Tiberius connects with a standing penalty kick! Pizza Boy’s chest turning a light shade of red after the contact and Tiberius drops to the canvas to apply a head scissors! The legs of the King crossed together as he applies a fundamental, basic wrestling hold that’s doing it’s job and keeping The Pizza Boy grounded on the canvas. The Pizza Boy trying to fight out of it, trying to dislodge the leg across the throat but he’s unsuccessful. Thrashing his legs out to try and create some separation yielding nothing as Tiberius rolls onto his stomach and forms a bridge! Increasing pressure being applied to the head and neck of The Pizza Boy. The official asking Pizza Boy if he wishes to quit and the underdog waves him away. Tiberius rolls back to the canvas, shifting the pressure back to the throat but The Pizza Boy manages to pull himself across the canvas and get his foot on the bottom rope! The official steps in and calls for Tiberius to break the hold!
ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Cherish: And Tiberius complies! The Pizza Boy quickly tries to roll away and drags himself a corner of the ring. Tiberius IV just exuding confidence right now as he slowly approaches the battered hometown hero and begins to stomp away at the mid section! The ball is firmly in his court; he’s forced The Pizza Boy to wrestle his match at his pace. Tiberius drags Pizza Boy to his feet and fires away with a forearm shot to the jaw! He follows it up with a second and a third! The Pizza Boy slumps into the corner, barely able to keep himself up without the assistance of the second rope. The official ordering Tiberius to step away from the corner and does for just a second. TIBERIUS CHARGES BACK BUT PIZZA BOY WITH ENOUGH WHEREWITHAL TO STEP OUT AND CONNECT WITH A DROP TOE HOLD INTO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE! NO! TIBERIUS MANAGES TO GET HIS ARMS OUT IN TIME TO STOP HIMSELF FROM COLLIDING WITH THE TURNBUCKLE! PIZZA BOY TRIES TO CLIMB BACK TO HIS FEET BUT TIBERIUS CONNECTS WITH A KICK TO THE JAW WITH HIS BACK TURNED! INCREDIBLE ACCURACY! PIZZA BOY STUMBLES AWAY BUT COMES CHARGING BAC– KAMEHAMEHA!!! TIBERIUS EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER AND CONNECTS WITH THE DOUBLE PALM THRUST CONNECTING TO THE CHEST OF THE PIZZA BOY! TIBERIUS SCRAMBLES INTO THE COVER HOOKING BOTH LEGS!!
OOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWOOO!!! KICKOUT!!!
Pierre: Pizza Boy shoots the shoulder up off the canvas before the two count! Tiberius rolls away from the cover in a calm manner; he has The Pizza Boy right where he wants him. Once again The Pizza Boy has to scratch and claw his way across the canvas to pull himself by his feet. Tiberius slowly rises to his feet, his eyes fixated on The Pizza Boy who barely manages to stand with the assistance of the ropes… AND TIBERIUS CUTS HIM BACK DOWN WITH ANOTHER LOW DROPKICK TO THE KNEE. THE LEFT KNEE BEING KICKED OUT FROM UNDER HIM; PIZZA BOY COLLAPSES BACK TO THE CANVAS. Tiberius arrogantly rolls back away and kips back up to his feet as The Pizza Boy clutches the knee and drives his free hand onto the canvas. Tiberius with his eyes remaining fixated on The Pizza Boy who AGAIN tries to climb back to his feet; the man simply refuses to lay down! Tiberius backs himself onto the ropes and lines Pizza Boy up…TIBERIUS CHARGES IN…SHOTEI!!! THE PALM STRIKE TO THE CHEST FROM THE PIZZA BOY! THE PIZZA BOY LAUNCHES OFF THE RIGHT LEG TO STUN TIBERIUS! PIZZA BOY RISES BACK TO HIS FEET, SHAKING SOME FEELING BACK INTO THE LEFT LEG! TIBERIUS TURNS TO CONNECT WITH THE STANDING LARIAT! BUT PIZZA BOY DUCKS; HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING FOREARM!
Cherish: YES! THIS CROWD IS COMING BACK TO LIFE. THE PIZZA BOY RALLYING OFF THE BACK OF THIS VOCAL CROWD. TIBERIUS STAGGERS BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE’S MET IMMEDIATELY BY A KNIFE EDGE CHOP BY THE PIZZA BOY! HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION AND THEN A SECOND CHOP. A THIRD AND A FOURTH BACKING TIBERIUS INTO THE CORNER! TIBERIUS TRYING TO TANGLE HIMSELF IN THE ROPES BUT THE PIZZA BOY ISN’T ALLOWING IT! HE DRAGS TIBERIUS BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! BUT TIBERIUS LAUNCHES A ELBOW AND IT CONNECTS TO THE JAW AND THE PIZZA BOY BACKS OFF REELING! TIBERIUS TURNS BACK AROUND– JAWBREAKER! THE PIZZA BOY WITH A JAW BREAKER! TIBERIUS IS OUT ON HIS FEET AND THE PIZZA BOY ROLLS HIM UP FOR A COVER!!
OOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWOOO!!! KICKOUT!!!
Pierre: NO TIBERIUS POWERS OUT OF THE PIN AND AGAIN SLIDES BACK OUT OF THE RING! The only way Tiberius has been able to create distance and kill the momentum of The Pizza Boy whenever it seemed he was gaining it; Tiberius has been nothing short of smart in this contest!
Cherish: Smart perhaps but look out! The Pizza Boy isn’t allowing him to breath! He slides out of the opposite side of the ring and blindsides Tiberius with a forearm shot! Tiberius remains on his feet but barely does so; he pushes the steel steps between himself and The Pizza Boy, the official slides out of the ring and Tiberius even uses him to create separation! But The Pizza Boy isn’t having any of it! He charges towards Tiberius AND TIBERIUS USES HIS MOMENTUM AGAINST HIM, TOSSING THE PIZZA BOY INTO BARRICADE! NO!! THE PIZZA BOY MANAGES TO GET BOTH HANDS UP IN TIME! HE COUNTERS WITH AN ELBOW TO THE RIB CAGE! HE CONNECTS WITH A SECOND AND TIBERIUS IS STUNNED! THE PIZZA BOY GRABS HIM BY THE HAIR AND DRIVES THE FACE OF TIBERIUS INTO THE TOP OF THE BARRICADE! THE PADDING PROVIDING LITTLE COMFORT AS PIZZA BOY REPEATS! AGAIN AND AGAIN THE SKULL OF TIBERIUS IV BOUNCING OFF THE RINGSIDE BARRICADE! HE STUMBLES AWAY BUT THE PIZZA BOY PULLS HIM BACK IN!! SNAP SUPLEX ACROSS THE TOP OF THE BARRICADE! TIBERIUS CRUMBLES INTO THE CROWD AS THEY ERUPT IN CHEERS.
Pierre: THE SPINE OF OUR KING COULD HAVE BEEN GRAVELY DAMAGED CHERISH! BUT THE PIZZA BOY ISN’T GOING TO SHOW ANY PAUSE UNTIL HE CAN PUT THIS MAN AWAY FOR GOOD; MAKE HIM A MEMORY OF THE PAST! THE REFEREE SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING TO START THE TEN COUNT AND I THINK THE PIZZA BOY COULD WIN BY COUNTOUT! TIBERIUS HASN’T MOVED AN INCH!
ONE! TWO! THREE!
Pierre: Finally Tiberius is starting to crawl back to his feet…what on earth is The Pizza Boy doing? He’s signalling to the crowd to move out of the way! GET UP TIBERIUS!
FOUR! FIVE! SIX!
Pierre: The Pizza Boy rolls back into the ring and back out to restart the count but he’s lining Tiberius up! Ringside patrons are scattering as Tiberius rises to his feet! THE PIZZA BOY CHARGES AND LEAPS OVER THE BARRICADE TO CONNECT WITH THE CROSSBODY! BOTH MEN GO TUMBLING INTO SEVERAL ROWS OF CHAIRS! CHAIRS SCATTERED EVERYWHERE, THE CROWD GREATLY DISPERSED! THE PIZZA BOY RISES BACK TO HIS FEET AND STUMBLES INTO THE ARMS OF FANS WHO HOLD HIM BACK UP, CHEERING HIM ON!
ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Cherish: The Pizza Boy using his body as an absolute weapon! He drags Tiberius out of the rubble of steel and tosses him back over the barricade! Tiberius clutches to the steel steps and tries to pull himself up but The Pizza Boy launches himself off the top of the barricade and drops the knee across the back!
FIVE! SIX! SEVEN!
Cherish: Pizza Boy pulls Tiberius back to his feet and rolls him inside the ring and slides in himself. Now it’s The Pizza Boy with all the confidence in the world! Buoyed by the vocal response of The Garden, muttering to himself for Tiberius to rise to his feet! And now it’s Tiberius using the ropes to pull himself back to a vertical base! Tiberius reaches a knee and The Pizza Boy swoops in to drag him to his feet; a wicked smile across the face of The Pizza Boy! HE DELIVERS A KICK TO THE RIBS AND PULLS TIBERIUS IN! HE HOISTS HIM UP AND OVER HIS SHOULDERS! GORY NECKBREAKER!!!! YES IT CONNECTS! THE PIZZA BOY TRANSITIONS IT INTO A BACKSLIDE!
OOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWOOO!!! TTTHHHRRRE– KICKOUT!!!
Pierre: NO!! TIBERIUS WITH ENOUGH TO LIFT HIS SHOULDER UP OFF THE MAT. The Pizza Boy quickly rises to his feet and backs himself into the corner! He feels he has Tiberius right where he wants him! The Pizza Boy cautious watches Tiberius slowly rise back to his feet; clutching his back with one hand and his neck with the other! Pizza Boy exits the ring and makes his way to the top rope! HE’S PERCHED UP HIGH CHERISH AND LISTEN TO THIS OVATION FROM THE CROWD! HE TURNS HIS BACK ON HIS OPPONENT AS TIBERIUS REACHES HIS FEET! TIBERIUS TURNS AND THE PIZZA BOY LEAPS! THE FINAL DELIVERY!!! THE FINAL DELIVERY!!! THE FINAL DELIVERY!!!!!!!!
Cherish: NO! NO! TIBERIUS DRAGS THE OFFICIAL IN HIS PLACE AND THE PIZZA BOY CONNECTS WITH A NEAR PERFECT THE FINAL DELIVERY…BUT TO THE REFEREE!! THE PIZZA BOY RACES BACK TO HIS FEE– LOW BLOW! TIBERIUS WITH A STRAIGHT KICK TO THE GROIN AS THE PIZZA BOY FALLS TO THE CANVAS IN PAIN! TIBERIUS FALLS BACK INTO THE CORNER WITH A DAMN SMILE AND A LAUGH. THE REFEREE DROPS OUT OF THE RING. WE NEED ANOTHER ONE DOWN HERE. BUT TIBERIUS ISN’T DONE, HE DRAGS THE PIZZA BOY BACK TO HIS FEET AND HOISTS HIM UP INTO THE ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION! THE GAME CLINCHER! THE ELECTRIC CHAIR DRIVER PLANTING THE PIZZA BOY ON THE BACK OF HIS NECK. TIBERIUS GOES TO COVER BUT REALISES THE REFEREE IS OUT. CONSEQUENCES OF HIS DESPERATION.
(A slow motion replay shows The Pizza Boy connecting with The Final Delivery to the official)
Pierre: The heat coming from these fans is absolutely nuclear for Tiberius IV. The Pizza Boy had this match won if he connected with The Final Delivery…and Tiberius…well he went to extreme lengths. And I think he’s about to go even further Cherish! Tiberius rolls back out of the ring and makes his way to the timekeeper area next to us!
Cherish: Oh come on! You don’t need a damn chair Tiberius!
Pierre: I don’t think he’s listening to you Cherish.Tiberius slides the chair back into the ring and rolls under the bottom rope. The Pizza Boy just starting to stir and the official hasn’t moved at all. The Pizza Boy reaches a knee…AND TIBERIUS SWINGS THE CHAIR AND CONNECTS WITH A SICKENING THUD OVER THE SKULL OF THE PIZZA BOY! IMMEDIATELY BLOOD BEGINS TO TRICKLE FROM THE FOREHEAD OF THE PIZZA BOY BUT HE’S REFUSING TO LAY DOWN! HE DESPERATELY TRIES TO FIGHT BACK TO HIS FEET…HE DOESN’T HAVE THE BALANCE BUT HE’S BACK UP AND STARING A HOLE RIGHT THROUGH TIBERIUS IV! HIS FISTS RAISED AND LOOKING FOR A DAMN FIGHT! THIS CROWD TRYING TO WILL HIM ON AN– TIBERIUS WITH ANOTHER SICKENING SHOT TO THE SKULL BUT I CANNOT BELIEVE IT, THE PIZZA BOY IS STILL ON HIS FEET. TIBERIUS…TIBERIUS IS LAUGHING??
Tiberius IV (No Mic): You will kneel to your King….
Cherish: TIBERIUS SWINGS THE CHAIR FOR A THIRD TIME BUT THIS TIME CONNECTS WITH THE LEFT KNEE OF THE PIZZA BOY! THE PIZZA BOY’S KNEE BUCKLES UNDERNEATH HIM AND HE’S FORCED TO REST ON ONE; KNEELING BEFORE THE KING OF ELITE! COME ON. THIS IS SICKENING. THE PIZZA BOY STILL WITH HIS EYES LOCKED ON TIBERIUS’ AND YOU CAN SEE PURE FURY IN THEM; HE’S GRITTING HIS TEETH, CLENCHING BOTH FISTS TIGHTE– AND TIBERIUS WITH A FOURTH CHAIR SHOT AND THIS TIME THE PIZZA BOY COLLAPSES AT HIS FEET. THE FIRE IS WELL AND TRULY OUT FOR THE PIZZA BOY AND THIS CROWD CANNOT BELIEVE IT. HIS FACE BECOMING THAT OF A CRIMSON MASK, THE SEAT OF THE CHAIR COVERED IN HIS BLOOD. Now what is he doing?!?
(Tiberius shifts his boot under the face of The Pizza Boy)
Tiberius IV: And you will kiss my feet…
Pierre: TIBERIUS DRIVES THE EDGE OF THE CHAIR INTO THE BACK OF THE NECK OF THE PIZZA BOY! THE BLOOD AND SWEAT OF THE PIZZA BOY SPILLING ONTO THE BOOT OF TIBERIUS! HE’S SQUIRMING ON THE CANVAS BUT CAN’T FIGHT HIS WAY OUT OF IT AS TIBERIUS DRIVES THE CHAIR INTO HIS NECK MORE AND MORE, APPLYING MORE PRESSURE. SOMEONE STOP THIS. GET ANOTHER OFFICIAL DOWN HERE AND PUT AN END TO THIS.
(Tiberius pulls the chair away. The Pizza Boy tries to roll away but Tiberius drives his boot into his abdomen. He stomps on his chest and holds him down)
Tiberius IV: Good. Now…YOU WILL SWEAR…YOUR…FEALTY!!
Cherish: I- I- I CAN’T WATCH THIS. TIBERIUS DRIVES THE CHAIR DOWN ACROSS THE THROAT OF THE PIZZA BOY AND IMMEDIATELY HIS EYES TURN FROM FURY TO FEAR. THE PIZZA BOY SCRATCHING AND CLAWING AT THE CHAIR, TRYING TO ALLEVIATE THE PRESSURE BUT TIBERIUS AGAIN APPLIES MORE PRESSURE, MAKING IT NEAR DAMN IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE PIZZA BOY TO BREATH; EVERY BREATH HE TAKES HE’S GASPING DESPERATELY. TIBERIUS IS [CENSORED]! THIS IS SADISTIC! WHAT KIND OF KING WOULD DO THIS? IS THIS THE KING HE WANTED TO REPRESENT? PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PLEASE STOP THIS!!
(As The Pizza Boy begins to fade, Tiberius releases the pressure. The Pizza Boy rolls away gasping for air and Tiberius this time allows him to do so as the canvas becomes blood soaked.)
Pierre: This is…this needs to end. He’s proved his point and this rate…he isn’t going to have a jester, he isn’t going to have his chance to humiliate The Pizza Boy. We still have no replacement official out here and I guess at this point there isn’t going to be one. The crowd has gone absolutely silent. Tiberius raises the bloodied chair in the air and they barely manage to boo him. They’re stunned. They’re absolutely stunned and I can’t say I blame them. The Pizza Boy…still trying to fight back to his feet. He all know just how much of an underdog he is not just on Showdown but perhaps the greatest in this entire company…but this might be the time he stops…and he lays down. He isn’t going to fight another day if he continues. He isn’t going to be able to fight at all.
Cherish: If he could hear you Pierre, I don’t think he would have listened to a damn word. He’s back up to his feet and this crowd is starting to find their voice again! Tiberius slowly approaches him as The Pizza Boy, a bloodied mess, stumbles towards the middle of the ring but he collapses again. He’s got nothing left at this point; surely he’s just running on pure fumes. NO COME ON. DON’T RAISE THE CHAIR AGAIN; NOT ANOTHER SHOT! AND TIBERIUS HOLDS THE CHAIR BY THE FRAME AT THE BOTTOM AND STICKS THE CHAIR INTO THE THROAT OF THE PIZZA BOY! HE RAISES HIS HEAD AND THE PIZZA BOY STARES RIGHT BACK AT HIM.
Tiberius IV: Truly defiant as ever. NOW SUBMIT TO YOUR KI–
Cherish: THE PIZZA BOY SPITS AT THE EYES OF TIBERIUS IV! THE STUBBORN MAN, HE’S ASKING FOR DEATH BUT HE DOESN’T HAVE A CARE IN THE WORLD. TIBERIUS PULLS THE CHAIR AWAY FROM THE THROAT OF THE PIZZA BOY AND HE’S LIVID. SEETHING AS HE WIPES THE SPIT AWAY FROM HIS FACE AND THE PIZZA BOY GRINS BACK AT HIM. TIBERIUS SLOWLY TURNS, BOILING AT THE PIZZA BOY’S REFUSAL TO SUBMIT. HE SWINGS THE CHAIR FOR A FIFTH TIME BUT THE PIZZA BOY SHOOTS UP OFF THE CANVAS AND TACKLES TIBERIUS TO THE CANVAS! THE CHAIR GOES FLYING AND THE PIZZA BOY BEGINS TO FIRE AWAY WITH LEFT AND RIGHT SHOTS! CLOSED FIST SHOTS, BRUTALLY DRIVING THEM INTO THE SKULL OF TIBERIUS! TIBERIUS TRYING TO COVER UP THE BEST HE CAN BUT TO LITTLE AVAIL. THE PIZZA BOY DRAGS HIM UP TO HIS KNEES AND PLANTS HIM WITH A KNEELING DDT!
Crowd: PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY! PIZZA BOY!
Pierre: LISTEN TO THIS PLACE! THEY’VE FOUND THEIR VOICE ONCE AGAIN AS THE PIZZA BOY RISES BACK TO HIS FEET. THE BLOOD CONTINUING TO FLOW FROM HIS FOREHEAD DOWN TO HIS CHEST, HE SHOULDN’T BE STANDING AFTER THE BEATING HE TOOK! TIBERIUS STUMBLES TO A VERTICAL BASE. OH YES! THE PIZZA BOY PICKS UP THE STEEL CHAIR AND NOW IT’S TIBERIUS WITH FEAR SHOOTING THROUGH HIS EYES; THE PIZZA BOY GRIPS THE CHAIR AND CLOSES IN. TIBERIUS PLEADING FOR MERCY BUT THE PIZZA BOY WITH A GRIN ON HIS FACE ISN’T STOPPING. TIBERIUS KICKS OUT AT THE PIZZA BOY, CONNECTING TO THE KNEE. THE PIZZA BOY STUMBLES BACK, TIBERIUS CHARGES OUT OF THE CORNER AND PIZZA BOY DRIVES THE EDGE OF THE CHAIR INTO THE RIB CAGE! TIBERIUS FOLDS IMMEDIATELY AND THE PIZZA BOY CRACKS THE CHAIR ACROSS THE BACK! TIBERIUS ARCHES BACKWARDS INSTANTLY. THE PIZZA BOY DROPS THE CHAIR AND PULLS TIBERIUS IN, LOOKING FOR THE FINAL SLICE!!
Pierre: NO! TIBERIUS MANAGES TO FREE HIMSELF… KOMODO BITE!!! TIBERIUS DESPERATELY BITING DOWN ON THE SHOULDER OF THE PIZZA BOY; THE PIZZA BOY RELEASES HIS GRIP BUT TURNS, AS DOES TIBERIUS! BOTH MEN CONNECT WITH STIFF FOREARM SHOTS TO THE JAW! SWEAT GOES FLYING FROM TIBERIUS, BLOOD FROM THE PIZZA BOY. BOTH MEN COME REELING FROM THE COLLISION BUT CHARGEBACK AND AGAIN CONNECT WITH FOREARM SHOTS! THE CROWD TRYING TO RALLY THE PIZZA BOY ON! TIBERIUS FOR A THIRD TIME LOOKS FOR THE FOREARM BUT THE PIZZA BOY DUCKS! HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES LOOKING FOR A RUNNING FOREARM AND HE CONNECTS! BUT TIBERIUS SWINGS AROUND CONNECTS WITH ONE OF HIS OWN! BOTH MEN STUMBLE FROM THE COLLISION. THE PIZZA BOY HASTILY REACHES FOR THE CHAIR. TIBERIUS HAS NOTHING. THE REFEREE IS FINALLY STARTING TO PULL HIMSELF TO HIS FEET BY THE RING APRON…
Cherish: BOTH MEN TURN…TIBERIUS SPRAYS THE GREEN MIST AT THE PIZZA BOY!!!! BUT THE PIZZA BOY SWINGS WILDLY WITH THE CHAIR AND CONNECTS TO SKULL; THE MIST MISSES AND TIBERIUS COLLAPSES TO THE CANVAS! THE PIZZA BOY STAGGERS BACKWARDS AND DROPS THE CHAIR! HE DRAGS TIBERIUS BACK TO HIS FEET AND PULLS TIBERIUS IN! THE LAST SLICE!!!! THE STANDING ASAI DDT DRIVING THE BACK OF TIBERIUS IV’S HEAD INTO THE BLOODIED CHAIR! THE PIZZA BOY PULLS IT OUT FROM UNDER TIBERIUS AND SLIDES IT OUT OF THE RING AND MAKES THE COVER; THE REFEREE SLOWLY CRAWLS BACK INTO THE RING!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Cowboy Song” by Faith No More hits as The Pizza Boy rolls off Tiberius IV. He lies motionless in the ring as the crowd erupts in applause)
Ring Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH….TTTTHHHEEEE PPPIIIIIIIIZZZZZZZAAAAAA BBBBOOOOYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cherish: HE DID IT! I CAN’T BELIEVE HE DID IT! THE PIZZA BOY HAS CONQUERED THE KING OF ELITE; TIBERIUS MUST LEAVE HIM ALONE FOR GOOD. WHEN IT SEEMED LIKE THE MATCH WAS LOST, HE DUG DEEPER THAN MOST CONSIDER UNIMAGINABLE AND HAS PULL OF AN INCREDIBLE VICTORY.
Pierre: I CAN BARELY HEAR YOU CHERISH BUT THE MAN HAS A HEART OF GOLD. NOBODY CAN TEST HIM ON THAT. NOBODY CAN EVEN TOUCH HIM WHEN IT COMES TO PERFORMANCES LIKE THESE. A GREAT DISPLAY OF COURAGE AND DETERMINATION. TIBERIUS IV, THE KING OF ELITE, IS GOING TO HAVE TO FIND ANOTHER MAN TO PLAY THE ROLE OF HIS JESTER.
(The Pizza Boy manages to pull himself up to his feet. His face stained with his blood, he stumbles towards the corner and slowly ascends to the second rope where the crowd grows louder. Tiberius rolls out of the ring and snatches his crown from the timekeeper’s area staggers below The Pizza Boy. The two lock eyes for a moment, a grin washes over The Pizza Boy as Tiberius makes his way towards the ramp)
Cherish: This chapter of The Pizza Boy’s career, perhaps, has closed for good and it must feel like a considerable amount of weight has been dropped from his shoulders. Congratulations to The Pizza Boy, EAW’s top underdog.
(The Pizza Boy continues to celebrate his victory as the camera fades to black)
(The camera fades backstage, where HRDO is seen speaking to backstage management…)
???: HRDO, we need to talk!
(HRDO picks his head up from the clipboard, forming a smile across his face)
HRDO: Well if it isn’t The Heart Break Boy…
(HBB steps onto the scene, some cheers can be heard in the background, mixed with boos)
HRDO: What can I do for you?
HBB: I want a rematch, with Dubian, for the Hall of Fame Championship.
(HRDO pauses for a moment, tilting his head)
HRDO: A rematch? Didn’t you just get your title match tonight? And If I remember correctly, you lost.
HBB: I KNOW…
(Then calms down)
HBB: I know, sorry… I just, I know I can beat him! I know I can get that title! But you know what?! I want to take that title on my TURF…
HRDO: Go on.
HBB: I want a best of three series with Devan Dubian! And I don’t want any “if, ands, or buts” about it! I’ve worked my ass off in this company and I believe I’m owed a rematch!
HBB: And I want him at Reckless Wiring! Like I said, MY TURF. Let him walk into the enemy’s playground and see what it’s like.
(The Madison Square Garden can be heard booing…)
HRDO: Quite a bold thing to ask, but I enjoyed your showing against Devan Dubian. I respect that. So, you know what? Fine. But remember, you lose this one, the series of three is done. And you manage to win, Dubian gets a rematch. You lose the rematch, well I’m afraid you’re tough out of luck. You’ve had multiple chances, HBB. You need to take advantage of at least one of them. I can’t just hand you rematch after rematch. If you can’t defeat Devan Dubian at Reckless Wiring, then don’t bother ever coming back to me, Murrow, or Monroe for rematches. Understood?
(HRDO cocks a smile)
HBB: Oh, I’ll make sure to win BOTH times. I am THE GOLDEN BOY. And I will be your EAW Hall of Fame Champion.
(HBB pats HRDO’s back, before walking off, leaving HRDO once again with the backstage management, as the camera fades back into the Madison Square Garden…)

(Recap video of moments between Brian Daniels and Lannister play…)
(The camera transitions back into the cheering Madison Square Garden crowd, where thousands of fans begin a “BRIAN DANIELS! BRIAN DANIELS! BRIAN DANIELS!” chant, the camera moves past the loud crowd, to above the ring — showcasing the 20ft tall Hell in a Cell slowly descends upon the ring…)
Cherish: There it is folks, for a second time tonight! We’re going to see the SECOND Hell in a Cell match take place tonight! I’m so pumped and by the sound of this crowd, they’re pumped as well!
(The Hell in a Cell structure fully surrounds around the ring, as the camera pans into the ring announcer and referee inside of the ring…)
Ring Announcer: This following main event match is for THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIOOOOONSHIPPPP!!!… AND IT WILL TAKE PLACE INSIDE HELL IN A CELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!
(The crowd erupts in cheers)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first…
Crowd: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
(“Paint it, Black” by Ramin Djawadi blares throughout the arena, as the crowd become unglued, the cheers echoing through the arena, and after a few moments, Brian Daniels steps out of the curtains, the cheers become even louder, wearing red and black attire, he pauses on the stage, to embrace his hometown crowd, before marching down to the ring, the crowd follow in a huge “YES!” chant)
Ring Announcer: FROM NEW YORK CIIIIIIIIITYYY, NEW YOOOOOOOOOOORK!!!!!!… WEIGHING IN AT 210 POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONDSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!…… “THE MAN IN BLACK” BRIAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNN DANNNNNNNIEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
Cherish: CAN YOU HEAR THE THUNDERING CHEERS TONIGHT? IF NOT, YOU SERIOUSLY HAVE A HEARING PROBLEM! THIS NEW YORK CITY CROWD HAS COME ALIVE FOR ANOTHER ONE OF THEIR HOMETOWN BOYS, BRIAN DANIELS! I DON’T THINK I’VE SEEN A WILD REACTION LIKE THIS IN A LONG TIME!
Pierre: Brian Daniels is certainly competing with the hometown advantage at his side! I wonder how much that will affect Lannister’s performance tonight! Brian Daniels is walking out here, without a care in the world, because that’s just it — he doesn’t care about Lannister! He’s already expressed how he doesn’t obsess over World Title reigns anymore! He doesn’t need a third to redeem himself anymore! He was at one point the longest reigning World Champion, but still the longest reigning World Heavyweight Champion!
Cherish: That always makes me wonder, if he doesn’t care, how much effort will he put toward winning? I imagine he would like to get that title to defend it against Robbie V! I’m sure his hometown crowd would love it as well! There’s so many questions to be answered tonight!
(Brian Daniels enters through the Hell in a Cell door, sliding into the ring, as “Paint It Black” slowly fades away, the crowd continues a loud “BRIAN DANIELS!” chant, as Daniels awaits Lannister…)
Ring Announcer: And introducing next….
(“The Eagle Has Landed” by Avatar hits as the crowd pours in the loud boos, Lannister pushes through the curtains, with the Answers World Championship strapped around the waist, he pays little to no attention to the crowd, bringing them into a “FUCK LANNISTER! FUCK LANNISTER! FUCK LANNISTER!” chant, as he makes his way into the cell…)
Ring Announcer: FROM DORTMUND, GERMANY, WEIGHING IN AT 252 POOOOOOOOOOOOOUNNNNNDSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!… HE IS THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!… “THE ANGEL OF DEBT” LANNNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIIIISSSSSSTTTTTTERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Pierre: BOO HIM ALL YOU WANT, NEW YORK! YOU WILL NOT PHASE SUCH A BEASTLY MAN! AS MUCH AS I RESPECT DANIELS, YOU CANNOT COMPETE WITH PERFECTION AS LANNISTER!
Cherish: While you’re busy gawking at Lannister, I’ve even noticed the lack of Athena at his side! I guess even he decided that this match would be too dangerous for her involvement! I guess Lannister actually does have an emotional side somewhere deep down inside him! But nonetheless, Lannister is truly going to be tested tonight! Despite Daniels not caring, these two might know each other more than they think! Daniels has changed, Lannister seemingly staying the same… but for some reason, they always find a way to adapt to their unique styles in the ring!
Pierre: I expect nothing less than the same man we’ve seen for the past years tonight! He’s conquered Daniels and his bandits known as ELITE before! Last week was a fluke, we all know it! I don’t see Lannister walking out WITHOUT his title… those are straight facts, Cherish!
Cherish: I guess we’ll see.
(Lannister enters the ring, Daniels relaxing in his corner, laughing at the negative response that Lannister is getting from the crowd, Lannister goes to his corner, as “The Eagle Has Landed” cuts off, the referee walks over to Lannister, taking the Answers World Championship from him, then going over to Daniels to show him the title, he returns to to the middle to show the Answers World Championship off to the crowd…)
Cherish: And at the end of the day, that’s really what it’s all about… being Answers World Champion.
(The referee hands the Answers World Championship to the ring announcer, as he makes his exit, the ringside management lock the cell door as soon as it shuts, leaving Daniels and Lannister to stay each other down from the inside…)
Crowd: YOU’RE GONNA GET YOUR FUCKING HEAD KICKED IN!
(The crowd once again erupts into another chant, this time “YOU’RE GONNA GET YOUR FUCKING HEAD KICKED IN!” as Daniels once again smiles at Lannister, looking around everywhere, seeing the structure they’re locked in, as the referee calls for the bell…)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Cherish: What I expect to be one insane Hell in a Cell match is officially underway! Lannister and Brian Daniels takes this one peaceful moment to glance around them at the cell locking them inside! Daniels and Lannister then lock eyes, as they proceed to circle around the ring… Lannister attempts to move forwards in on Daniels! BUT DANIELS WITH A LOUD SHOOT KICK TO LANNISTER’S LEG! Lannister backs off, but they continue the same rotation! Lannister charges in for a second time! BUT IS ONCE AGAIN REJECTED BY ANOTHER CARELESS SHOOT KICK TO THE LEG! Lannister is furious! He shakes his leg—DANIELS PURSUES AND UNLEASHES A PLENTIFUL AMOUNT OF CRAZY LOUD SHOOT KICKS TO LANNISTER’S LEGS! DANIELS HAS HIM DOWN TO A KNEE NOW! AND HE CONTINUES BY DRIVING KNEE AFTER KNEE INTO LANNISTER’S CHEST! JUST SO MANY KICKS BEING DRIVEN INTO LANNISTER—AND LANNISTER IS STANDING UP?! WHAT?! Lannister slowly rises to his feet! AND ANOTHER LOUD KICK! Lannister is embracing each incoming kick with such resilience! AND ANOTHER KICK WITH SUCH FORCE BEHIND IT! IT STAGGERS LANNISTER ONLY FOR A MOMENT, BEFORE HE CHARGES HEAD FIRST INTO DANIELS WITH A VICIOUS HEADBUTT! AND A SECOND ONE! A THIRD!
Pierre: AND MUCH LIKE DANIELS WAS WITH HIS KICKS… LANNISTER IS RELENTLESSLY SMASHING HEADS WITH DANIELS! He has Daniels wobbling around! I don’t think he’s going to be standing much longer if he takes anymore of those headbutts! Lannister moves in! A HEADBUTT WITH SHEER FORCE! Daniels falls backwards into the turnbuckle, but pushes himself outwards! He’s egging Lannister on for another! Lannister takes the bait! MY GOODNESS! WHAT A STIFF FOREARM FROM DANIELS! GOOD GOD! THESE FEROCIOUS STRIKES BEING DELIVERED FROM LANNISTER AND DANIELS ARE DOING SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE! Lannister shakes his head—BUT ANOTHER STIFF FOREARM CLASHES WITH LANNISTER’S HEAD! And this is leaving Lannister in a very vulnerable state in the early going! Lannister trying to keep his balance! DANIELS SPRINTS OFF THE ROPES AND COMES REBOUNDING BACKWARDS AT LANNISTER!!!… BUT LANNISTER CATCHES HIM MID-WAY!!! OVERHEAD BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX SENDING DANIELS FLYING HALF-WAY ACROSS THE RING! Lannister showcasing such brilliant in-ring awareness! Daniels grasps at his lower back, but tries to make it quickly back to his feet! However, Lannister is right there to drag him up like a rag doll! And Lannister THROWS him into the corner like it’s nothing! Daniels attempts to charge out of the corner…
Cherish: AND LANNISTER SENDS HIM FLYING OVERHEAD WITH A BEAUTIFUL OVERHEAD BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX AGAIN!!!! Daniels takes a nasty landing in the ring, Lannister making quick work to get back to his feet! Daniels gets to his hands and knees, BUT LANNISTER ONCE AGAIN SHOWCASING HIS SHEER STRENGTH!!!… LIFTS DANIELS UP INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION!!! FIREMAN’S CARRY TAKEOVER!!!! Lannister staying on top of Daniels like a predator stalking its prey! Lannister slaps Daniels’ head as he tries to get back onto his feet, laughing as he reaches down to lift him up—BUT DANIELS PULLS LANNISTER IN BY THE ARM!!! AND HE’S TRYING TO TRAP THE ARM FOR THE FOURTH SEAL! THE FOURTH SEAL! HE’S DRAGGED LANNISTER DOWN TO HIS STOMACH! BUT LANNISTER IS FIGHTING OUT! HE DOESN’T WANT TO ALLOW THIS! HE’S DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO PREVENT IT, BUT DANIELS IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO LOCK IT IN! DANIELS ALMOST HAS IT… NO! LANNISTER BREAKS HIS ARM FREE FROM FURTHER HARM! Lannister stumbles backwards into the corner, BUT DANIELS KIPS UP!!! AND HE CHARGES AT THE CORNERED LANNISTER!!! STARKILLER!!!! THE RUNNING BIG BOOT TO THE CORNERED LANNISTER!!!!… MISSES! LANNISTER SPINS OUT OF THE CORNER AT THE LAST SECOND! Daniels with his boot caught up on the top rope! BUT LANNISTER RUSHES DANIELS FROM BEHIND AND GETS HIM IN THE FULL NELSON POSITION…
Pierre: HALF AND HALF SUPLEX!!!! LANNISTER SWEEPS DANIELS OFF HIS FEET WITH ANOTHER SUPLEX VARIATION! Any time Daniels tries to get to slightest bit of offense, Lannister says no! He’s not going to let Daniels see the light of day if he has it his way! He just has to go at the right pace, wear Daniels down, and get him where he needs to finish this! Daniels tries to distance himself away from Lannister, but of course he’s all over him! AND LANNISTER POUNCES ON HIS BACK!!!… HE WRAPS DANIELS ARMS ROUND HIS LEGS AND LOCKS HIM IN THE CAMEL CLUTCH!!! THE CAMEL CLUTCH SUBMISSION IS COMPLETELY LOCKED IN! AND DANIELS HAS NOWHERE TO GO! THERE’S NO ROPE BREAKS IN THE HELL IN A CELL! THERE’S EITHER ESCAPING IT SOMEHOW, OR TAPPING… OR LANNISTER SNAPS YOU! THE CROWD IS LOUDLY BOOING AS DANIELS SHOUTS IN AGONY! HE’S TRYING TO CRAWL FORWARD FOR WHATEVER REASON! BUT LANNISTER WRENCHES BACKWARDS ON THAT NECK! HE IS PULLING BACK WITH ALL HIS MIGHT! HE’S GOING TO BREAK DANIELS IN HALF! DANIELS… DANIELS IS TO A KNEE?! WHERE IS THIS POWER COMING FROM? DANIELS IS SLOWLY LIFTING LANNISTER UP! BUT LANNISTER STAYS CLUNG ONTO DANIELS!
Cherish: AND DANIELS IS UP ON BOTH FEET! HE’S STANDING! LANNISTER JUMPS OFF HIS BACK AND TRANSITIONS IT INTO A STANDING SLEEPER! NOW HE’S CAUGHT DANIELS IN A STANDING SLEEPER! THIS IS SURELY NOT GOOD FOR DANIELS! BUT DANIELS WITH ALL HIS MIGHT SWINGS BACKWARDS AT LANNISTER’S SKULL WITH VICIOUS ELBOW STRIKES! MULTIPLE ELBOW STRIKES! HE’S JUST RAPIDLY FIRING BACK!!! FORCING LANNISTER TO RELEASE! Daniels finally able to escape that sleeper hold, Lannister stumbles back—BUT THERE’S A SPINNING ELBOW SMASH FROM DANIELS! FOLLOWING WITH A SPINNING FOREARM! AND A SPINNING KICK TO THE CHEST! AND A SPINNING BACKFIST! DIE! DIE! DIE! DANIELS WITH ANOTHER SPINNING FOREARM! LANNISTER IS TAKING THE BRUTE FORCE OF THESE SPINNING STRIKES! AND TO FINISH IT OFF… A SPINNING KNEE DIRECTLY TO THE GUT OF LANNISTER! Lannister grabs at his gut, BUT DANIELS RUSHES OFF THE ROPES! HE COMES FLYING BACK AT LANNISTER!!!… LANNISTER STANDS UP ONLY TO BE NAILED WITH A DEVASTATING SINGLE RUNNING HIGH KNEE!!! VALAR MORGHULIS!!! LANNISTER IS TAKEN OFF HIS FEET JUST LIKE THAT! Daniels making a HUGE comeback here! He’s shaking his head, as the New York crowd loudly cheers him on! Daniels slowly rises back to his feet and immediately charges the corner!
Pierre: DANIELS IS CLIMBING UP THE ROPES!!!!… WHAT’S HE THINKING??? HE’S MADE IT TO THE TOP AND HE LOOKS AHEAD AND LANNISTER STRUGGLING TO HIS FEET! Brian Daniels is sizing him up, I don’t think Lannister is even aware of where he is right now! Lannister steps closer to the corner! DANIELS LEAPS!!!! FRONT MISSILE DROPKICK!!!! HE GOT—NO!!! LANNISTER CATCHES HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS!!! BUCKLE BOMB!!!! LANNISTER TOSSING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE WITH FORCE!!!! Daniels hits those padded turnbuckles like no man ever should! This giving Lannister enough time to catch his breath, but he’s staying all over Daniels! Daniels staggers out of the corner… RIGHT INTO THE RED WEDDING!!! RED REDDING!!! DISCUS LARIAT CLOTHESLINE!!! NO!!! DANIELS DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE ARM! AND HE HOOKS LANNISTER IN!!! BACK SUPLEX!!! LANNISTER FLIPS AND LANDS ON HIS FEET! WHAT PURE ATHLETICISM AND AGILITY! DANIELS LEAPS BACK TO HIS FEET! LANNISTER RUSHES IN! HE’S GOT DANIELS POSITIONED FOR A GERMAN! GERMAN SUPLEX!!!! BUT DANIELS FLIPS OVER HEAD AND LANDS ON HIS FEET! Lannister pushes himself back to a vertical stance, BUT IS MET WITH A LOUD SNAP KICK TO THE CHEST! BUT LANNISTER TAKES IT! DANIELS WITH ANOTHER VERY LOUD SNAP KICK! AND LANNISTER EMBRACES THAT ONE AS WELL!
Cherish: LANNISTER IS JUST EATING THOSE KICKS FOR DINNER! AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER! DANIELS GOING ALL OUT! AND LANNISTER IS STANDING THERE LIKE THE MONSTROUS BEING HE IS! Lannister catches one of the incoming kicks! DRAGON SCREW! LANNISTER WITH THE DRAGON SCREW! But both men race each other back to their feet! AND LANNISTER IS THERE TO CLOBBER DANIELS IN THE HEAD WITH A NASTY FOREARM! Lannister then proceeds to whips Daniels into the ropes! Daniels comes soaring back at Lannister! RUNNING KNEE SMASH RIGHT IN THE GUT!!!! SENDING DANIELS FLIPPING HIGH OVER HIS KNEE! HE JUST TURNED DANIELS INSIDE OUT! Daniels holding his stomach, but Lannister of course is towering over him! Lannister scoops him up! He whips him to the ropes one more time! ANOTHER RUNNING KNEE SMASH INTO THE STOMACH OF DANIELS!!!! ANOTHER WILD KNEE!!! DANIELS WINCES IN PAIN! He’s curled up in a ball, grasping at his gut, while Lannister walks around proud of what he’s done! He drags Daniels back up by his hair and WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER!!! LANNISTER FOLLOWS IN PURSUIT! RUNNING CLOTHESLINE TO THE CORNERED DANIELS!!! NO!!! DANIELS WITH A STIFF FOREARM TO LANNISTER’S HEAD! Daniels attempts to step out of the corner…
Cherish: BUT LANNISTER TOSSES HIM RIGHT BACK INTO IT! FOLLOWING UP WITH A PIERCING KNEE TO THE STOMACH! No way was Lannister going to allow that one to fly by! Pun intended! Lannister delivers a couple of clubbing blows to the head, before slowly hoisting Daniels up onto a seated position on the third rope! Daniels tries fighting back again! Able to land a couple of quick strikes to Lannister’s head! But none that seem to phase Lannister ever so much! But the question remains, what’s he thinking here? Lannister exits out onto the apron, once again striking Daniels in the back! And Lannister… IS CLIMBING UP BEHIND DANIELS?! HUH?! HE LIFTS DANIELS UP! AND HE’S GOT HIM UP… DANIELS STRIKING BACK WITH FURIOUS ELBOWS! HE’S ATTEMPTING TO PREVENT WHATEVER SADISTIC THOUGHT CAME CROSS LANNISTER’S HEAD! BUT ONCE AGAIN, THOSE BLOWS TO THE HEAD ARE HARDLY MESSING WITH THE FLOW! LANNISTER HAS DANIELS EXACTLY WHERE HE WANTS HIM! OH… MY… GOD!!!!!!!! GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!!! GOOD HEAVENS!!! LANNISTER WITH JUST A MIND BLOWING GERMAN SUPLEX FROM THE TOP TO THE OUTSIDE!!!! AND DANIELS JUST GRAZES THAT UNFORGIVING STEEL! LANDING IN SUCH AN AWKWARD POSITION! BENT LIKE AN ACCORDION!
Pierre: JESUS!!!! DANIELS IS BARELY MOVING! Lannister has to be feeling the aftermath of that as well! He hit that ringside floor HARD! The referee rushes to check on Daniels and being the inhuman that Lannister is, he’s pulling himself up using the apron! Daniels is trying to shove the referee away! And Lannister does just that! He pushes through the referee, dragging Daniels up to a vertical base by his hair! AND HE DRAGS DANIELS FACE ACROSS THAT STEEL! DRAGGING IT ALL THE WAY ACROSS… AND TOSSES HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE HELL IN A CELL STRUCTURE! Daniels hits that cell with force, leaned against it! LANNISTER CHARGES FORWARD AT HIM! RUNNING JUMPING KNEE TO THE ABDOMEN! THE FORCE OF THE KNEE PRESSING DANIELS SPINE FIRST AGAINST THE CELL AGAIN! Daniels collapses to a seated position in the corner of the cell! Lannister ascends back to his feet once more! Looking down at the wounded Daniels! He distances himself away from Daniels, BUT TURNS AROUND ON A DIME AND CHARGES AT HIM AGAIN! GOODNESS GRACIOUS! THIS TIME WITH A LOW DROPKICK SENDING THE BACK OF DANIELS’ SKULL COLLIDING WITH THAT CELL STRUCTURE! LANNISTER IS ON A VICIOUS ASSAULT!
Cherish: This is certainly spelling “BAD NEWS” all over it for Brian Daniels! Lannister, with a smile on his face, glances down at Daniels, but then looks over to… the steel steps? What could he possibly wa—oh! OH! Lannister using all of his strength lifts the upper part of those steel steps right off the bottom half! THIS ISN’T GOOD! Daniels is trying to drag himself, using the cell to climb! AND LANNISTER HAS HIS SIGHTS SET DEAD ON DANIELS!!!… AND LANNISTER THROWS THE STEEL STEPS RIGHT IN DANIELS’ DIRECTION! ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?! DANIELS JUST NARROWLY AVOIDS WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN A CAREER ENDING BLOW! Lannister is ENRAGED! Daniels takes a moment to breathe, but he doesn’t have very long! LANNISTER IS PURSUING HIM FROM BEHIND—ELBOW SMASH! DANIELS WITH A PERFECTLY TIME ELBOW! Lannister jumps back, giving Daniels enough time to turn around! AND LANNISTER WASTES NO TIME! HE SPRINTS FORWARD! BUT RIGHT INTO A JUMPING CORKSCREW ROUNDHOUSE KICK THAT NAILS HIM IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! Lannister collapses onto one knee! Daniels making quick time to rise back to his feet! AND MY GOODNESS! DANIELS WITH A SICK ROUNDHOUSE KICK DIRECTLY CATCHING LANNISTER IN THE THROAT!!!
Pierre: LANNISTER IS GASPING FOR AIR! CHOKING ON HIS OWN SPIT! Daniels with an absolutely savage blow! He backs away from Lannister, while the referee ensures Lannister is okay! Lannister points at his throat, BUT DANIELS COMES RUSHING IN! KINGSLAYER! THE KINGSLAYER!!!! AN AXE KICK IN THE SHINING WIZARD FORM! LANNISTER DROPS STOMACH FIRST TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! DANIELS HAS SLAIN THE FORMER KING! I’m still amazed Daniels has the capability to even walk after the severe punishment he’s already taken at the hands of Lannister! Daniels getting back into the swing of things, but curiously looking underneath the ring, only to find… OH… OH BOY! A SMILE FORMS ACROSS DANIELS FACE AS HE PULLS OUT LUCILLE FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING! HIS BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT! That’s the same exact bat that broke the arm of Ares Vendetta! Daniels whistles, as the crowd goes along with it, swinging the bat back and forth as he walks over to Lannister who’s struggling to get back to his feet! Daniels crouches down, flaunted the bat in Lannister’s face, while Lannister angrily stares up at Daniels! Daniels laughs and stands back up… HE WINDS UP THE BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT!!!…
Cherish: SWINGING IT DIRECTLY DOWN UPON LANNISTER’S SPINE WHILE HE WAS PUSHING HIMSELF TO HIS HANDS AND KNEES! AND DANIELS RIPS THAT BAT RIGHT OFF HIS SPINE! YOU CAN SEE THE CUTS LEFT IN LANNISTER’S FLESH! THAT BARED WIRE SUNK INTO HIS SKIN LIKE NO OTHER! I DON’T THINK I’VE HEARD LANNISTER SHOUT IN SUCH AGONY! AND DANIELS WINDS THE BAT UP AGAIN! AND SMASHES IT OVER LANNISTER’S SPINE A SECOND TIME!!!! GOODNESS GRACIOUS! HE’S GOING TO BREAK LANNISTER’S SPINE IN HALF! HE’S GOING TO PERMANENTLY PUT LANNISTER IN A WHEELCHAIR! LANNISTER IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO CRAWL AWAY… Daniels drops the bat and grabs Lannister by the tights! He pulls Lannister back onto his feet! He’s not done with him yet! DRAGON SUPLEX!!! THE DRAGON SUPLEX RIGHT INTO THE WALL OF THAT CELL!!!! LANNISTER GOES NECK FIRST INTO THAT CELL WALL!!! HE’S GOT TO HAVE A BROKEN NECK! Daniels tilts his head, smiling at Lannister suffering, but shrugs his shoulders! You can tell Daniels really doesn’t care what happens to Lannister! He’s said it himself! He pulls Lannister up by his arm, refusing Lannister any time to recover from any injury sustained! AND WHIPS HIM RIGHT BACK INTO THE CAGE WALL!!!
Pierre: LANNISTER GOES SPINE FIRST INTO THE STRUCTURE! AND DANIELS SOARS AFTER HIM!!!… DROPKICK!!! RUNNING DROPKICK PLANTING BOTH BOOTHS INTO LANNISTER’S CHEST! SHOVING HIM BACK INTO THE CELL! Both of these men have found unique ways to use this cell as a weapon! I’m not surprised either! They’re savages battling for the Answers World Championship! Lannister once again finding himself in a horrible predicament! Daniels ripping Lannister up to his feet by his head! AND STRIKES HIM WITH AN OPEN PALM! AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER! HE’S SLAPPING LANNISTER AROUND LIKE IT’S NOTHING! And then proceeds to slide him back into the ring! But Lannister keeps rolling across the ring, while Daniels enters the ring! Lannister slides right out the other side! Smart thinking! Preventing anything else from happening! But I think Daniels sees that as a challenge! Lannister pulls himself up using the apron! Daniels takes one look to Lannister and then the ropes! AND DANIELS HITS THOSE ROPES LIKE A MADMAN! REBOUNDING ACROSS THE RING AND HE DIVES ONTO THE OUTSIDE!!!… SUICIDE DIVE ONTO LANNISTER THAT DRIVES HIM INTO THE CELL DOOR!!! AND THE FORCE OF THAT SUICIDE DIVE SENDS LANNISTER RIGHT THROUGH THE HELL IN A CELL DOOR!!! LANNISTER GOES CRASHING OUTSIDE OF THE CELL!
Cherish: THINGS HAVE SPILLED RIGHT OUTSIDE THE CELL STRUCTURE NOW! This structure was meant to lock them in, but for whatever reason throughout the years, they’ve always found their way out! Lannister is out of it! And Daniels crawls back to his feet, realizing his whereabouts! I don’t know if he looks pleased or not! The only way you’re winning this is in the ring! Daniels looks around to the crowd, then lifts Lannister up to his feet—AND LAWN DARTS HIM RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE!!! LANNISTER BEING THROWN AROUND FOR ONCE IS A CHANGE UP! AND DANIELS PER USUAL… TAKES OFF IN A SPRINT OF HIS OWN AFTER LANNISTER! BUT MY GOD! LANNISTER IS THERE TO STOP DANIELS IN HIS TRACKS! DANIELS IS CAUGHT BY LANNISTER! AND HOISTED UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS IN A FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION! THE RAINS OF CASTAMERE!!!! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER RIGHT OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE FRONT ROW SECTION OF THE CROWD! WHERE ON EARTH DID THAT SUDDEN WIND OF ENERGY COME FROM? LANNISTER COMING OUT OF NOWHERE! He drops back onto the barricade, looking back while heavily breathing… and Daniels is being assisted by his hometown crowd! They’re aiding him to his feet!
Pierre: THESE NEW YORK CHEATERS! THEY’RE WORSE THAN THEIR BASEBALL PLAYERS WHEN IT COMES TO CHEATING! LET THE MAN STAND ON HIS OWN!!!… That’s RIGHT! Lannister hops over the barricade and pushes through the crowd! Security there to keep the crowd away! Lannister pulls Daniels up himself AND DELIVERS A NASTY HEADBUTT! Daniels reels backwards, stumbling on spaghetti legs! These two have now taken this fight into the crowd! AND LANNISTER WITH A STIFF FOREARM TO THE BACK OF DANIELS HEAD! THERE’S ONE MORE FOREARM! Daniels tries to escape forward, but drops to a single knee! Lannister pursues! RUNNING KNEE SMASH TO THE BACK OF DANIELS HEAD!!! THAT SHARP KNEE JUST PIERCING THE BACK OF HIS SKULL! Lannister is surely not allowing Daniels any breathing room! Lannister is now tossing chairs aside? He’s making a lot of room, the security still there to ensure that… and he flips Daniels onto his spine! And scoops his legs up—OH I KNOW! THE SWING! THE SWING IN THE CROWD! AND LANNISTER BEGINS TO TWIRL DANIEL AROUND AND AROUND! BUT OH! HE’S SWINGING HIS HEAD INTO THE BARRICADE! DANIELS HEAD MAKING LOUD THUD OFF THE METAL BARS INSIDE KEEPING THAT BARRICADE STANDING!
Cherish: THE SWING MAY LOOK FUN, BUT IT CAN BE USED FOR DEADLY SITUATIONS LIKE THIS… And Lannister releases Daniels, tossing him into the fan’s chairs! Lannister barely needing any time to catch his balance from spinning! Daniels grasps his head, his eyes just revealing the amount of pain he’s in! Daniels crawls to his hand and feet, BUT LANNISTER IS RIGHT THERE TO LIFT HIM UP BY HIS GUT!!!… AND THE STRENGTH OF THIS MAN! IT’S INHUMAN! LANNISTER POSITIONS HIMSELF… GUTWRENCH SUPLEX RIGHT OVER THE BARRICADE!!!! OR KNOWN AS THE KARELIN LIFT!!! DANIELS IS THROWN OVER THAT BARRICADE AND BACK RINGSIDE! Lannister follows after, hopping over the barricade, as Daniels continues to crawl away from him… Daniels gets to his feet, just slowly walking around the cell! BUT LANNISTER RUSHES AFTER HIM! LANNISTER CATCHES HIM! GERMAN SUPLEX!!!! GERMAN SUPLEX LAYING DANIELS OUT RIGHT IN FRONT OF US! EVEN WHEN OUTSIDE THE CELL THERE’S NO ESCAPING LANNISTER! Lannister towers over Daniels, who’s squirming on the ground… dragging him back up by his hair! Daniels tries swinging at Lannister! BUT LANNISTER… LANNISTER WITH THE BLOODMONEY!!!!… NO! DANIELS OUT OF PURE DESPERATION, THROWS HIS HEAD BACKWARDS AT LANNISTER! THE BACK OF HIS SKULL CRACKING OFF LANNISTER’S FACE!
Pierre: Lannister with no other options left, releases Daniels before taking a face full of Daniel’s skull! Daniels falls forward, but catches himself on the cell—AND DANIELS IS CLIMBING! DANIELS IS CLIMBING UP THE CELL! I KNEW IT WOULD COME TO THIS EVENTUALLY! HE’S SLOWLY CLIMBING! AND LANNISTER HAS BECOME AWARE! LANNISTER IN A RUSH FOLLOWS UP BEHIND DANIELS! CLIMBING AT A QUICKER PACE! HE MEETS DANIELS! BUT DANIELS SWINGS A FOREARM! AND ANOTHER FOREARM! LANNISTER WOBBLES BACKWARDS, BUT KEEPS HIMSELF ON THE CELL! AND THERE’S A HEADBUTT FROM LANNISTER! HEADBUTT FROM DANIELS! HEADBUTT FROM LANNISTER! DANIELS! LANNISTER! DANIELS! LANNISTER! AND I THINK I SEE SOME BLOOD TRICKLING DOWN LANNISTER’S HEAD! BUT HE USES THAT TOUGH HEAD OFF HIS FOR ANOTHER HEADBUTT! DANIELS LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOING TO FALL!!! BUT INSTEAD THROWS A WILD STIFF FOREARM AT LANNISTER’S HEAD! AND ANOTHER! IS LANNISTER GOING TO FALL???… HE KEEPS A FIRM GRIP ON THE CELL STRUCTURE! NEITHER MAN GIVING UP! AND LOOK! THEY’RE BACK AT IT AGAIN! EXCHANGING HARD HEADBUTTS ONCE MORE! THESE TWO ARE RELENTLESS! THEY’RE GOING TO GIVE EACH OTHER CONCUSSIONS—OH MY GOD!!!!!… DANIELS AND LANNISTER BOTH COLLAPSE OFF THE CELL AND RIGHT THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!!!!!!! MY GOD!!!!!!!!!
(The referee and medical personnel rush toward them both, as they check on their health condition…)
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Cherish: CAN WE GET A REPLAY OF THAT?
(Replays of Lannister and Brian Daniels collapsing off the side of the Hell a the Cell through the Spanish announce table are shown from various angles…)
Cherish: I don’t think either of them are moving an inch! How could they? After that fall I’d be amazed if they continue this match! But knowing them, they’re not even halfway done! The medical personnel have seem to clear the way, the referee unable to do anything in this situation! He can stop the match—OH! Daniels is stirring! Daniels is moving! He’s shown life! Daniels is rolling out of the rubble and back onto the ringside floor! He’s struggling to get back to his feet! Slowly, but surely! He leans against the cage, looking over to Lannister who’s just now managing to show some life himself! He sluggishly makes his way over to the timekeeper… swiping a steel chair away from him! I think Daniels is wanting to do some more damage to Lannister!
Pierre: AND HE DOES! DANIELS SWINGS THAT STEEL CHAIR VIOLENTLY DOWN ACROSS LANNISTER’S SPINE! AND AGAIN! HE SWINGS IT DOWN! A THIRD TIME! HE’S BEATING THE LIVING LIFE OUT OF HIM! AND ONE MORE TIME… BAM! HE CATCHES HIM ACROSS THE CHEST AS LANNISTER SPINS OVER IN PAIN! Lannister trying to evade any further shots, but Daniels unfolds the chair and places it down? What? Daniels then stomps away at Lannister’s gut, dragging him up… positioning himself near the unfolded chair! OH! OH NO! DANIELS HAS LANNISTER SET UP—TIGER SUPLEX!!!! TIGER SUPLEX ONTO THE UNFOLDED FLAT PART OF THE STEEL CHAIR! AND LANNISTER GOES RIGHT THROUGH THE CHAIR!!! LANNISTER EATING THAT COLD STEEL!!! DANIELS IS GIVING IT HIS ALL! I DON’T THINK I’VE SEEN LANNISTER PUSHED THIS MUCH IN HIS ENTIRE REIGN AS ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION SO FAR! THE CARNAGE THESE TWO ARE LEAVING BEHIND! Daniels rips Lannister off the chair, driving him spine first into the structure once more! AND NOW DANIELS IS UNLOADING WITH HIS SIGNATURE KICKS! ONE KICK AFTER THE OTHER! DANIELS HAS THE WOUNDED LION EXACTLY WHERE HE WANTS HIM! THE ENDLESS AMOUNT OF KICKS THAT DANIELS IS UNLEASHING UPON LANNISTER! HIS CHEST IS REDDENING LIKE A SUNBURN!
Cherish: Daniels letting off the kicks, but does he have something else in mind? He’s wearing down the Answers World Champion, surely he’s got a strategy going here! AND HE DOES! HE RUSHES AT LANNISTER WHO’S STILL LEANED AGAINST THE CELL! DROPKICK! A DROPKICK SENDS HIM FLYING INTO THE CELL! AND DANIELS PUSHES HIMSELF UP DISTANCES HIMSELF! A SECOND DROPKICK THRUSTING LANNISTER BACK INTO THE CELL! AND DANIELS UP AGAIN! A THIRD DROPKICK SENDING LANNISTER INTO THE CELL! UP AGAIN!!!… RINSE AND REPEAT! THERE’S ANOTHER DEADLY DROPKICK! LANNISTER IS BRUTALLY BEING ASSAULTED BY THOSE ROUGH ENDS OF DANIELS’ BOOT! Daniels up one more time! Lannister stumbles forward, barely able to stay on his feet! AND DANIELS SIZES HIM UP… CAUSTIC ECHO!!!! THE CAUSTIC ECHO—NO!!! LANNISTER KICKS DANIELS INNER THIGH INTERRUPTING THE SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK! SMART THINKING BY LANNISTER! AS SURELY THAT SAVED HIM FROM A WORLD OF HURT! Daniels drops down onto his knee, aiding the other one! This is not where you want to be right now! Lannister is recovering and he’s RIGHT THERE! LANNISTER GETS HIS HEAD BETWEEN DANIELS LEGS… AND LITERALLY LIFTS HIM UP IN A VERY ODD POSITION! DANIELS TRYING TO SWING AND FIGHT TO GET OUT OF IT! BUT TO NO PREVAIL!
Pierre: WHAT IS LANNISTER GOING FOR—OH!!! GOODNESS! WHAT?!?! INVERTED SITOUT WATERWHEEL SLAM ONTO THAT ALREADY BROKEN STEEL CHAIR FROM EARLIER! LANNISTER SEEKING OUT SOME VENGEANCE RIGHT THERE!!! WHAT A UNIQUE AND DEADLY MOVE THAT WAS! DANIELS GOING STOMACH AND HEAD FIRST INTO THAT STEEL CHAIR AND CATCHING SOME OF THE ARENA FLOOR! Lannister rolls and pushes himself back to his feet! He best be thinking about taking this bout back inside the ring! I think enough damage has been done to put Daniels away! Daniels face could be shattered! As Lannister drags him by the arm around the cell! He’s dragging him back to the door! It’s taking little to no effort to do so—BUT WHAT IS LANNISTER THINKING??? LANNISTER PLACES DANIELS ARM BETWEEN THE DOOR!!!… HE’S GOING TO BREAK DANIELS’ ARM! LIKE DANIELS BROKE ARES’ ARM! LANNISTER WALKS TO THE DOOR!!!… AND SLAMS IT SHUT ON DANIELS’ ARM!!! WAIT, DANIELS PULLED HIS OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! GOOD GOD WHAT A SAVE THAT WAS! DANIELS JUST SAVING A TRIP TO THE HOSPITAL THERE! And a furious Lannister isn’t pleased with the result! He drags Daniels up by the arm, BUT DANIELS KICKS HIM AWAY!
Cherish: Lannister tries to come back at Daniels again, BUT IS ONCE AGAIN KICKED AWAY! Daniels using the cell structure for support to get back onto his feet! Lannister charges in again! BUT DANIELS SWINGS THE CELL DOOR OPEN!!! RIGHT INTO LANNISTER’S HEAD!!! LANNISTER FALLS BACKWARDS OFF THAT NASTY HIT! Daniels shuts the door once more, the lock on it busted from the previous suicide dive! I don’t see what else these men can do! Daniels grabs Lannister up by the head AND THROWS HIM INTO THE CORNER OF THE HELL IN A CELL! BASHING HIS HEAD OVER AND OVER ACROSS THAT SHARP CORNER! AND I JUST SEE THE BLOOD POURING DOWN! THE CUT THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY THERE HAS NOW WORSENED! DANIELS IS BASHING LANNISTER’S SKULL IN! ONE MORE TIME…. DANIELS BACKS OFF! Lannister is teetering! CAUSTIC ECHO!!!!… LANNISTER COLLAPSES BEFORE DANIELS COULD EVEN SWING THE BOOT! LANNISTER EVADING THE CAUSTIC ECHO A SECOND TIME! THIS TIME BY LUCK! Daniels frustratingly approaches Lannister, BUT LANNISTER TRIPS DANIELS UP! AND DANIELS FALLS FACE FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! AND LANNISTER KEEPS FULL CONTROL OF THAT LEG AS HE STANDS BACK UP! AND PULLS DANIELS LEG OUT FROM UNDER HIM!!!!
Pierre: DANIELS LANDS FLAT ON HIS STOMACH! Lannister was playing possum this entire time! AND LANNISTER DRAGS DANIELS UP!!!… TOSSING HIM INTO THE AIR!!!! FEUER FREI!!!!… NO!!! DANIELS NAVIGATES THROUGH THE AIR AND LANDS DOWN ON THE SIDE OF THE CELL! HE CATCHES HIMSELF ON THE SIDE OF THE CELL AS HE ASCENDS UP IT!!!! LANNISTER WITH FURY IN HIS EYES CHASES AFTER HIM!!! LANNISTER IS CRAWLING UP! AND DANIELS IS AS WELL! DANIELS HAS REACHED THE TOP! He rolls to the side, getting to his feet! LANNISTER IS THERE! Lannister is up, BUT IS MET WITH A FOREARM! DANIELS ALREADY BEATING INTO LANNISTER ON THE SIDE OF THE CELL! LANNISTER IS DANGEROUSLY TOO CLOSE TO THE EDGE… AND DANIELS DELIVERS ANOTHER CLUBBING FOREARM ACROSS THE HEAD! LANNISTER TEETERS BACKWARDS, BUT HE CATCHES HIMSELF! SNAP KICK TO THE LEG! ANOTHER SNAP KICK FROM DANIELS! Lannister needs to get himself away from the edge! He’s facing a career ending fall if he ends up falling off that cell! AND LANNISTER DOES JUST THAT! LANNISTER FIGHTS BACK WITH HUGE RIGHT HANDS TO DANIELS HEAD! An overwhelming amount just enough to keep Daniels vicious striking tactics at bay for now!
Cherish: I mean it’s still considered dangerous! These men are all the way on the top of that Hell in a Cell structure! Absolutely anything and everything could happen! Daniels charges in at Lannister! But Lannister stops him with a left hand! AND another one! AND another one! A fourth! Lannister proving he can be quite the tactical brawler! AND THERE’S A STIFF KICK TO DANIELS’ STOMACH!!! AND LANNISTER PULLS DANIELS IN… HOISTING HIM UP AND BEHIND HIS HEAD! HOLDING HIM HIGH ABOVE HIS HEAD VIA HIS ARMS!!!… THE BROKEN CROWN!!!! GANSO BOOOOOOOMBBBBBBB!!!!… WAIT, DANIELS SLIDES OUT OF LANNISTER’S GRIP!!!! AND HE LANDS BEHIND LANNISTER!!!! LANNISTER SPINS AROUND!!! CAUSTIC ECHO!!! THE CAUSTIC ECHO!!!! HE GOT—LANNISTER DUCKS! LANNISTER AVOIDS IT! AND LANNISTER SPINS DANIELS AROUND! TOSSING HIM INTO THE AIR!!!! FEUER FREI!!!!!! THE FEUER FREI!!!!… BUT DANIELS LANDS ON LANNISTER’S SHOULDERS IN A SEATED POSITION! HE’S TRYING FOR A FRANKENSTEINER!!!! BUT LANNISTER HOLDS HIM TIGHT ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! HE’S NOT RELEASING DANIELS!!! AND LANNISTER MARCHES FORWARD!!! POWERBOMB!!!!! HE POWERBOMBS DANIELS RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE CELL!!! AND THE CELL LOOKS LIKE IT’S GOING TO GIVE! AND LANNISTER LITERALLY HOISTS DANIELS BACK UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!!!! A SECOND POWERBOMB!!!!! THIS ONE FORCING THE MIDDLE TO BREAK!!!! DANIELS IS HANGING IN LANNISTER’S GRIP! HE’S GOING TO FALL!!!!…
Pierre: BUT LANNISTER ONCE AGAIN WITH ALL HIS FREAKISH STRENGTH HOLDS ONTO DANIELS!!!! HE DRAGS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS THE PLATFORM ON TOP OF THE CELL HAS BROKEN!!! YET SOMEHOW LANNISTER KEEPS DANIELS ON HIS SHOULDERS! HE STANDS RIGHT OVER THE BROKEN FLAP IN THE TOP OF THE CELL! I GUESS HE WANTS THE FULL IMPACT! HE WANTS TO END DANIELS CAREER! LANNISTER LIFTS DANIELS UP… BUT DANIELS IS BEATING INTO LANNISTER’S FACE! HE’S NOT GOING DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT! DANIELS IS BATTERING DOWN ON LANNISTER’S FACE WITH SO MANY CLOSED FISTS! SO MANY VIOLENT FISTS—BUT LANNISTER TOSSES!!!… NO! DANIELS HOPS DOWN BEHIND LANNISTER! LANNISTER CATCHES HIMSELF BEFORE FALLING! AND DANIELS FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX!!!! THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX ONTO THE TOP OF THAT STEEL STRUCTURE! DANIELS JUST ABLE TO SAVE HIMSELF FROM A CERTAIN DEMISE! Daniels rolls back to his feet, looking down at Lannister… he has to be thinking “What’s going to give first? His body or this cell?”—DANIELS PULLS LANNISTER UP ONTO HIS FEET! WRAPPING HIS ARM AROUND LANNISTER’S HEAD!… SKYWALKER!!!! THE SKYWALKER!!!! STANDING SHIRANUI!!! HE DRIVES LANNISTER INTO THE TOP OF THE CELL ONCE MORE!
Cherish: Daniels stands back up to his feet, looking around at the jam packed hometown crowd! They’re on their feet… and he glances down to Lannister, who’s pushing himself back up?! Daniels shakes his head, he really cannot put this guy away! Lannister is slowly crawling to his feet, but Daniels slowly kicks away at him as he crawls! Driving multiple boots! He’s directing him toward the square opening on top of the cell! Lannister is being lead to his death! But he still continues to try and get back to his feet! For once, Lannister is being put through hell! And Lannister slowly, steadily, rises up to his feet… his back against that opening, he looks back, then to Daniels…
Brian Daniels: You’re going to get… YOU’RE FUCKING HEAD KICKED IN!
Pierre: CAUSTIC ECHO!!!! SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE TEMPLE!!!! GOT GOT HIM!!!! AND LANNISTER COLLAPSES INTO THE OPENING AND DOWN 20 FEET INTO THE RING!!!! HE LANDS SO HARD WITH A THUD THAT ECHOES ACROSS THE MADISON SQUARE GARDEN!!!! DANIELS FALLS BACK INTO A SEATED POSITION! HE’S PUT SO MUCH ENERGY INTO THIS MATCH IT’S UNREAL! BUT HE JUST NEEDS TO GET INTO THE CELL!!!!
(Replays of Brian Daniels connecting with the Caustic Echo are played, followed by Lannister’s 20ft fall…)
Cherish: I AM IN AWE! THESE FANS ARE IN AWE!
(Daniels sluggishly pushes himself back onto his feet, looking down at the referee and medical personnel checking on Lannister…)
Pierre: IS LANNISTER EVEN ALIVE? I DON’T… WAIT, WHAT IS DANIELS DOING?
(Daniels looks all around the cheering Madison Square Garden)
Cherish: WHAT ARE YOU DOING DANIELS? GET DOWN THERE AND PIN HIM!
(Daniels starts shaking his head rapidly, his hair getting messy…)
Pierre: GO DANIELS! WAIT… DANIELS PERCHES HIMSELF ON THE EDGE!!! THE MEDICAL PERSONNEL AND REFEREE ARE SHOUTING AT HIM! DANIELS DOESN’T CARE!!!! HE DIVES THROUGH THE OPENING 20FT IN THE AIR!!!! DIVING HEADBUTT!!!! IT’S OVER!!!!… FEUER FREI!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE FEUER FREIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!! WHAT?!?!?! WHAT?!?!?! LANNISTER POPPED HIMSELF UP AND CONNECTS WITH THE VERY EUROPEAN UPPERCUT ONTO THE DIVING BRIAN DANIELS! I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I JUST WITNESSED!!!! THIS IS MADNESS!!! LANNISTER COLLAPSES OVER DANIELS FOR THE COVER!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!… TWO!!!!… THREE!!!!!!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“The Eagle Has Landed” by Avatar hits, as Lannister pushes Daniels away, he lays back on the canvas, lifting a fist in the air, as the New York City crowd pour in with loud boos with the defeat of their hometown hero…)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner and STILL the Answers World Champion… LANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
Pierre: HE DID IT!!! THIS TIME AROUND… I DON’T KNOW HOW, BUT LANNISTER MANAGES TO PICK UP YET ANOTHER VICTORY! HIS SECOND TITLE DEFENSE SINCE CASHING IN ON THE PIZZA BOY! HE’S NOW GONE THROUGH TYLER PARKER, THE PIZZA BOY… AND THE NEW YORK HOMETOWN HERO, BRIAN DANIELS! THIS IS QUITE A SIGHT TO SEE!
(The Hell in a Cell structure begins to ascend, as Athena Vendetta comes running out to the ring, she swipes the Answers World Championship away from the referee, as Daniels slides out of the ring, Athena slides in…)
Cherish: THIS WAS TRULY A HORRIFIC YET SATISFYING MATCH TO WITNESS FIRST HAND! If you weren’t here live or watching this live at home! You don’t know the excitement you just missed! As much as I would have loved for Daniels to walk out of this arena with Lannister’s Answers World Championship… it didn’t happen.
(Lannister slowly pushes himself up, as Athena hands him his Answers World Championship, he embraces her with a hug before lifting her hand and the Answers World Championship up into the air)
Pierre: Brian Daniels pushed Lannister in a way that I don’t think I’ve ever seen before! Maybe he lost, because he didn’t use the signature roll up? WHO KNOWS! He put Lannister to the test and I don’t think Lannister can even say he’s walking out of this war 100%… I’m just as curious to see what Murrow’s response to RoViper’s individual losses are next week on Showdown!
(The Hell in a Cell is fully raise and Lannister climbs onto the second rope, as the crowd erupts in “FUCK LANNISTER! FUCK LANNISTER! FUCK LANNISTER!” chants, he puts his Answers World Championship in front of him and shouts “A LANNISTER ALWAYS PAYS HIS DEBTS…” before smiling and climbing off the ropes…)
Cherish: The fans hate it, but they have to respect it… Lannister is their Answers World Champion. But with that being said, this is all the time we have for you tonight! We hope you enjoyed tonight’s broadcasting and insist that you tune in next week… as the Gold Rush Tournament begins! I’m Cherish, that’s my creepy co-commentator, Pierre—
Pierre: Hey! Not cool.
Cherish: SIGNING OFF!
(The camera pans down to several doctors checking on Brian Daniels, seated ringside against the barricade, they put an ice pack over his neck, as the camera then transitions back to Lannister, who’s still celebrating his huge victory with Athena, as the camera goes black…)
