( EAW Intro plays )
( There is no fanfare, no video, no pyro – instead the show opens up to the U.S. Bank Stadium with a building completely packed full of fans, the Extreme Elimination Chamber hanging in the rafters and we see the Road to Redemption set up with the EAW main roster and some staff standing together on the stage. The LED ramp, ring posts and mini-trons all read the words “Thank You Brody”, and a portrait of Brody Sparks is on the titantron as well. )
( The building is mostly quiet, and the fans stay stood with the roster for a 10-bell salute.)
( Following the salute, the crowd starts a “THANK YOU BRODY” chant and begins a massive round of applause, with the EAW roster clapping along and some individuals with a face full of tears showing their emotion. The camera soon fades to black. )
( A video package plays featuring the song “Legends Never Die” by Against The Current to hype up the major matches of Road To Redemption – most notably the four Extreme Elimination Chamber matches. We get a video package displaying the build to each major story, and ending with the four World Champions holding up their titles. )
Narrator: And now… Elite Answers Wrestling proudly presents, the 11TH ANNUAL ROAD TO REDEMPTION 11!!!!!!
( Cut back to the U.S. Bank Stadium where “Legends Never Die” blares over the sound system, and the entire stadium of fans jump to their feet in celebration while pyro shoots up from the massive stage, the ramp, and turnbuckles. )
Stew-O: IT IS ON THIS NIGHT WHERE WE CELEBRATE LEGENDS, AND ESTABLISH NEW ICONS! WITH AN ATTENDANCE RECORD OF 68,000 MEMBERS OF THE EAW UNIVERSE FILLED INTO THE BRAND NEW, STATE OF THE ART U.S. BANK STADIUM, WELCOME EVERYONE TO THE ELEVENTH ANNUAL ROAD!!! TO!!!! REDEMPTION!!!!!!!
( Above the U. S. Bank Stadium fireworks are set off over the Minneapolis sky as the day becomes dusk. A dazzling display of multi-colored fireworks continue to go off in rapid succession, illuminating the city in a magnificent blaze. )
(The camera shows the Elimination Chamber slowly descending upon the ring. Jasmine Payton stands ringside with microphone in hand. In one of the pods, there’s a blue light shining)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jasmine Peyton: The following match is an Extreme Elimination Chamber match and it’s for the EAW Women’s Championship! First, making their way to the ring!
(A special cover of ‘RX Queen’ sung by Beyonce plays as Aria Jaxon walks out with blue hair, wearing blue and white ring gear. She’s wearing a black leather jacket with ‘SoCal Pro 4 Life’ on the back and her signature shades at the top of her head. She has the EAW Women’s Championship over her shoulder. In her hands are two neon blue light tubes)
Jasmine: From Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 116 lbs, she is YOUR EAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION! “The California Dream” ARIA! JAX-ON!
SG-1: Starting things off is the EAW Women’s Champion herself! Aria will not be one of the first two, which will be revealed after the other competitors!
Gia: The Face of Empire is walking into RTR with all the momentum in the world! Haruna and Azumi has wormed their way into the match but I have no doubt my homegirl’s going to hold it down!
SG-1: Aria’s doing a little tribute to the Iconic Brody Sparks with a new hair color and theme to match!
Gia: They may not have been the best of friends, but Aria respects what Brody Sparks has accomplished! As The Queen of the New Guard, it’s her duty to recognize those who have contributed to Empire!
(Aria walks into the chamber looking confident. She hands the belt to the ref and walks into her pod.)
Jasmine: And her opponents! Next…
(“River Blood” by Nature Of The Beast plays as Azumi walks out wearing a short blue and white kimono. She has a barbed wire kendo stick over her shoulders as she slowly saunters down the ramp)
Jasmine: From Yonabaru, Okinawa, Japan! Weighing in at 127 lbs…”The Unsung” AZUMI! GOTO!
SG-1: Azumi has made it her personal mission to take on Aria Jaxon and those she associates herself with.
Gia: She claims to be the face of Empire and will stop at nothing to accomplish those goals. She has two advantages currently: Not being one of the first two starters and having Haruna Sakazaki in her pocket! She managed to squeeze both of them in this match! Hopefully Aria doesn’t regret making her decision!
(Azumi walks into the chamber, glaring at Aria. She enters her assigned chamber and patiently waits)
Jasmine: Their next opponent! From Candyland, USA! Weighing in at 140lbs! SAVANNAH! SUNSHINE!
(“I Can’t Wait to Be King” plays as Savannah Sunshine comes out in a blue ‘Iconic Sparks’ t-shirt, skipping with her signature gummy bear baseball bat)
SG-1: Certainly an underdog favorite to take the whole thing!
Gia: Savannah Sunshine has proven herself more than capable to take on Empire’s best for the past couple of months! I would be a bit surprised – but not completely chocked if she comes out of this the new EAW Women’s Champion!
(Savannah skips her way into the chamber and salutes to Aria. She walks over to the empty blue pod and touches it with a warm smile on her face. She then walks over to her assigned pod)
Jasmine: Now! The first two starting competitors for this match! First, making her to the ring…
(“Red Fraction” by Mell plays as Revy walks out with her hands in her pockets. She pulls out a white box for a moment and grins. She has a blue ‘Thank You Brody’ shirt under her jacket)
Jasmine: From Houston, Texas and weighing in at 126 lbs…REVY!
SG-1: Revy has shown some improvements as of late. This is probably the biggest opportunity of her career!
Gia: With Savannah and Aria as allies and the Azuna partnership, Revy is the odd woman out!
SG-1: I doubt she cares about that though. All I want to know is – what’s in the box?
Gia: I think we all want to know that SG.
(Revy calmly walks inside the chamber and takes a corner)
Jasmine: And finally, from Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan weighing in at 116 lbs…HARUNA! SAKAZAKI!
(Haruna walks out in blue and white attire, wearing a blue feather boa as “Rosenkrautz “ by Ayasa plays. Haruna makes her way down the ramp with a red oak bokken sword)
SG-1: Haruna Sakazaki has one more shot at the one title that has eluded her throughout her career!
Gia: I’m curious what’s going to happen if her and Azumi are the last two remaining.
SG-1: I’d like to say that it’s every woman for herself. Haruna and Azumi had the advantage right now. Haruna can weaken the early entrees while Azumi can finish off the rest.
(Haruna walks into the chamber, taking off her boa. She walks into a corner, smiling at an unarmed Revy)
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG-1: And here we go! Haruna Sakazaki and Revy are set to start things off! Unlike last year’s Specialist chamber match, each woman is starting this match with a weapon in hand! Haruna has that bokken sword in hand, circling around Revy who tucked away that mystery box in her pocket! How does she expect to fight an armed person barehanded?
Gia: Revy doesn’t seem too bothered by this as she watches Haruna with interest. Sakazaki reaches back and swings her sword! Revy dodges the attack in time! Wow! You can hear the sound of a whistling echo through the air! The fans are losing their minds as they’re witnessing a prelude to a beatdown! Haruna gets into a sword stance and sidesteps Revy who attempts to close in from her blindside! Haruna counters and it connects! Ouch! Revy got caught in the thigh! The Brilliant Brawler is rolling around in agony, but she manages to avoid a second attack! Haruna’s yelling at her to stay still, but that’d be suicide in my opinion!
SG-1: Revy’s lucky to be wearing pants, though I doubt that makes a difference! Revy’s trying to reach the ropes as Haruna saunters over, licking her tongue across her sword! She’s in a playful mood, knowing full well that she’s in complete control of this match at the moment! She’s standing behind Revy, who’s clinging on to the second rope! Sakazaki places the wooden sword around Revy’s throat and pulls back! Revy’s kicking and screaming, trying to break free! Haruna put a knee to the back of Revy to keep her in place against the ropes! She’s choking the life out her opponent! You can see Revy’s face going pale as she’s trying to fight out of this strangulation! She turns at an angle and elbows Haruna in the gut! Sakazaki stumbles back but gets her- DDT! Revy drives Haruna’s face into the mat!
Gia: Revy managed to ground Sakazaki, but she’s still feeling the ramifications of that assault! The important thing is that Haruna no longer has the whip in her possession! Revy’s once again using the ropes to get to her feet, kicking away the whip in the process! Haruna’s sitting up – THREE COUNT!! Running knee to the face! Revy lifts the leg up for the cover!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWWWWO-
SG-1: Kick out at two! Revy looked to eliminate Haruna as soon as possible! I don’t blame her either – Sakazaki is a master swordswoman and the first ever Specialist champion! Revy attempts a grounded hammerlock but like a cat Haruna quickly ducks under Revy’s arm and reverses with one of her own! She picks Revy up by the hair and applies the arm wringer! Kick to the thigh! Another one! A third! A fourth! She pulls Revy in from behind and PLANTS her head into the mat with an inverted DDT! She doesn’t let up as she smoothly transitions into a headlock, applying that pressure on such a vulnerable area!
Gia: Haruna’s been very calm this entire time. I spoke with her and Azumi before the match and they both said their strategy for this match was to ‘assen na yo!’ Where I come from we refer to that as ‘tranquilo’. This is reminiscent of the Haruna prior to Pain for Pride 8! A focused tactician wearing down her opponent with rest holds and strikes!
SG-1: Azumi’s taken notice of this as she’s cheering on her partner in crime! Haruna’s standing up with the headlock still applied. Revy pushes her to the ropes and backs up, waiting on the rebound- STUN GUN FLAPJACK! Haruna’s neck bounces off the ropes and now she’s holding her neck, choking from the impact!
Revy: (off mic) Assen na yo HOE!
Gia: Revy’s repeatedly stomping at Haruna’s midsection, taking the air out of her stomach as she’s losing air from her lungs! This could take Haruna out for good!
(The arena grows dim as a spotlight begins to shine, rotating around the chamber)
Gia: We’re about to have another competitor enter the fray, turning this into a triple threat! The light lands on SAVANNAH SUNSHINE! The Candyland Princess has bolted out her pod with her gummy bear baseball bat and springboards from the top rope! FRONT DROPKICK TO THE FACE OF REVY! The Ace of Spades finds herself rolling along the mat, stunned from the surprise attack! Savannah picks up Haruna by the hair! SUNSET PARADISE! She hits that rolling cutter with perfection! She goes for the cover!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOO! THRRRREEEEEEEE
SG-1: HARUNA KICKSOUT! The Silver Lining sits up as if she was shocked back to life! Savannah can only stare in awe, wondering why she wasn’t able to secure the elimination! Haruna’s trying to catch her breath as she slowly looks at Savannah, giving her signature ‘death gaze’. I don’t like the look of this…
Gia: Haruna slowly stands up and grabs her wooden sword. Savannah slowly stands up, gummy bat in hand, trying to muster as much confidence as she can! The two circle each other, looking for an opening!
SG-1: Savannah swings the bat but Haruna easily parries and counters! Savannah surprisingly blocks the attack and swings wildly! The batter-batter-swing misses as Haruna ducks and easily disarms Lil’ Miss Sunshine! Thrust to Savannah’s stomach! She drops her bat and doubles over! Haruna aims for the head and swings but Savannah rolls away, sweeping Sakazaki mid-roll! She pounces atop her and starts raining down a series of punches to the forehead! Haruna pushes Savannah off and gets to her feet! Revy grabs her and applies the facelock! FALCON ARROW! Savannah’s back bounces off the mat! She pulls the legs back for the pin!
Ref: OOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO-
Gia: Savannah kicks out at two! Revy’s on her knees, realizing that it’ll take more than that to get rid of Sunshine! She stands up and delivers a lightning-fast kick to the lower back of Savannah! She’s crying out in pain, reaching out to Aria, who’s looking concerned for her number one fan! Revy sees this and grins at the champ as she sits Savannah up! She picks up the gummy bat, twirling it while laughing at her victim’s misfortune! She gets into a batting stance, her eyes focused on Aria!
Revy: (off mic) BATTER UP!
SG-1: SAVANNAH DODGES THE SWING! SHE PLANTS HER FEET TO THE MAT AS SHE TWIRLS AROUND WITH A DOUBLE LEG SWEEP! She catches the bat and jumps to her feet in one swift motion! What agility! She plucks a gummy bear from the bat and pops it in her mouth!
Savannah: (smiles) MMmm!
SG-1: SHE SLAMS THE BAT RIGHT INTO THE MID-SECTION OF REVY! OH MY GOD! Revy’s in so much pain, she can’t even scream out in pain! Savannah’s twirling the bat, her eyes wide with glee! I never seen this side of her before! Then again, you know what they say about the sweet ones! Savannah walks over Revy as Haruna sits in the corner, watching with interest!
Savannah: (off mic) You tried to aim for my head!? NOT COOL Revy! NOT COOL! You are so going to regret that in a few moments, heck yeah you are!
Gia: Uh this sounds familiar…
SG-1: SAVANNAH SLAMS HER BAT ONTO THE LEGS OF REVY! Trigger Happy is in pain beyond belief, while holding her leg! This is the most savage I’ve ever seen Savannah Sunshine! She looks like a total opposite of who we know her as!
(The arena dims as the spotlight turns on again. It lands on Azumi as she quietly walks out the pod with her barbed-wire kendo stick and heads inside towards Haruna)
Savannah: (angry) You are screwed Revy! SCREWED!
Gia: Oh god.
(Azumi whispers in Haruna’s ear, who nods)
SG-1: Savannah pops gummy bear in her mouth and raises her bat above her head, aimed for Revy’s face!
Savannah: (yells) IT’S ABOUT TO BE PEE-PEE PANTS CITY!
Gia: Haruna and Azumi rush forward! Haruna hits Savannah in the back with a running dropkick! Azumi rolls Revy up for the pin!
Ref: OOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEE!
Gia: REVY KICKSOUT! SOMEHOW REVY KICKS OUT! She’s barely conscious, but somehow she’s still in this! The physically fresh Azumi Goto can’t believe her eyes! Haruna throws Savannah between the ropes, holding her in place with a knee to the back of the neck! She motions for Azumi to go over to her. Azumi walks over and presses the barbed wire into the back of Savannah’s neck! I can barely watch this! You can see the barbed wire sticking in her neck as she’s screaming in agony! Haruna walks to the opposite side and raises her finger in the air! We know what this is! Haruna charges forward and swings in between the ropes! PRESTISSIMO! Tiger feint kick to the face of Savannah! Her skin almost rips from the barbed wire! Azumi goes for the cover!
Ref: OOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THRRREEEEEEEEEEE!
SG-1: SAVANNAH KICKSOUT JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME! Azumi is FUMING! She wants to take out Savannah for good and is in prime position to lock in the Shoryu Kekkai inverted STF, but Haruna stops her! She points at Revy, who’s leaning against the ropes! She whispers in Azumi’s ear, who responds with a nod. Haruna walks over to Revy, pointing at Savannah! She’s saying something to Revy and points at Aria, who’s banging on the pod, begging to be let out! Revy nods and SHAKES HARUNA’S HAND! There’s an alliance between the three of them! Things do not look good for Savannah Sunshine and Aria Jaxon!
Gia: This is unique considering that this match is supposed to be every woman for herself. I take it Azumi and Haruna want the champ and her biggest fan out of the way before they decide who will guide Empire’s future! Azumi’s laughing at Aria, who’s silently glaring at the joshi, cracking her knuckles. Azumi whips Savannah to Revy who back body drops her out of the ring! Savannah’s back crashes onto the steel floor! I don’t know how much more punishment her back could take! Azumi’s laughing at Savannah and makes a cut throat gesture to Revy! Revy nods and climbs out the ring to deal with Sunshine! Azumi gestures for Haruna to grab her weapon and the two approaches Aria’s pod, waiting for it to open.
SG-1: This is bad news for Ms. Jaxon if she to deal with two armed competitors at the same time! She has her light tubes, but they’re one use only! She has two chances to make this count!
Gia: Meanwhile, Revy picks up Savannah and tosses her head first into the steel cage! She’s almost down for the count, but Revy’s having fun taking her time! Aria has her blue light tubes raised as she readies herself for battle! The arena grows dim as the spotlight comes on, centered on the Women’s Champion! Aria slides on her knees under Haruna and Azumi’s swings and turns around! A LIGHTTUBE SHATTERS UPON IMPACT AS ARIA STRIKES AZUMI’S SHOULDER! Goto is down! Haruna takes advantage and strikes Aria across the face with the bokken sword! The champ is knocked into the ring as she falls through between the ropes!
SG-1: The odds are just too much for Aria and Savannah! Azumi’s nursing her shoulder, but Haruna is focused on the stunned women’s champ as she climbs into the ring. She lifts the leg for the cover!
Ref: OOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Gia: Aria kicks out at two!? That was a clear shot to the face!
SG-1: Yes and no. I just realized that Aria turned her face away at the last moment to rolls with the impact to soften the blow, though with a wooden sword like Haruna’s would still leave a person stunned for quite some time. Aria’s instincts have saved her once again!
Gia: Meanwhile Revy has Savannah in the corner between the cage and Brody’s pod, and unleashing the mother of all mud stomps! It’s too much for Savannah who can only raise her arms in protest! The crowd is trying to get on her side! Haruna picks up Aria and whips her to the corner! Haruna aims for the midsection, but Aria pulls herself up and wraps her legs around Haruna’s neck! Rope-assisted Hurricanrana! Haruna’s flipped halfway across the ring as Aria lands on her back, already exhausted! Azumi is holding her shoulder as she grabs Aria’s lighttube and climbs into the ring. She places her foot on Aria’s neck, forcing causing to choke! The champ is kicking wildly, but she’s still under Azumi’s heel!
Azumi: (off mic) Assen na yo Aria-san!
SG-1: Aria turns to the side, avoiding the lighttube which smashes against the mat! Pieces of the tube is sticking on her face, as the champ is trying to fight off Azumi, who backs away from her kicking and screaming opponent! Aria gathers her composure and trips Azumi! She’s on top of her as she’s raining down hell with fist after fist! She grabs Azumi’s head and starts smashing it into the pieces of the light tube! Azumi’s wiggling around while crying out in pain! Aria has her hair in her hands, yelling things I don’t think I’m allowed to repeat! What was supposed to be a tribute to the late, great, and iconic Brody Sparks as turned into a warzone!
Gia: Savannah is picked up by Revy who presses her face against the steel frame of the chamber! Kick to the back of Savannah’s surgically repaired neck! Before Sunshine has a chance to take in the impact, Revy lifts her to her feet! Savannah’s standing on wobbly legs! Revy wraps her arms around Savannah’s waist, lifting her in the gutwrench position! She’s preparing her for the Arawashi Driver- FRANKENSTEINER COUNTER BY SAVANNAH! Revy just crashed through the nearest pod! Good thing the glass was replaced with hard plastic! The same pod Savannah came out of! Savannah’s lying prone while Revy’s in the supine position! The fans are on their feet, trying to get Savannah back into the fight!
SG-1: One thing about Empire Gia, is that these girls don’t let up! Speaking of which, Aria’s been trashing talking Azumi in the mount position while slapping her across the face! Haruna’s back on her feet! Curved roundhouse kick to the back of Aria’s head! Lapis Lazuli 1.0! Azumi seizes the opportunity and goes for the SHORYU KEKKAI! She has the inverted STF locked onto Aria! Look at that arch! Azumi is in perfect formation, pulling back at Aria’s neck! The champ is in a bad spot! Even if she can escape it, Haruna is lying in wait with her bokken sword AND Azumi’s barbed wire kendo stick in both hands!
Gia: Aria’s fighting to stay in this, but who knows for how long! The ref is checking on her, but the champ refuses to give up! Savannah is climbing to her feet against the cage, her arm outstretched to the fans, begging for their support! One fan in a Candyland World Champion shirt is raising their slurpee! The crowd is pointing at the fan, trying to get the referee’s attention! I remember this guy from Savannah’s last video! It’s her friend, Andy! Savanah’s friend Andy is trying to get an outside referee’s attention, but is being ignored!
SG-1: The ref has to focus on the match why would he- DID HE JUST JUMP THE BARRICADE! Savannah’s friend jumped the barricade and is running towards the chamber, officials and security hot on his heels! He has the slurpee in hand, putting it against the chamber! Savannah grabs it just in time as he’s tackled! Savannah takes a sip from the drink! She’s takes another one! She’s drinking as much as she can! She pulls the slurpee through the chamber before the refs could reach it and removes the straw! She’s on her feet, downing the whole thing as it spills over her face! Her body’s shaking violently as her eyes widen with intensity! She throws her hands in the air!
Savannah/Crowd: (yells) SUGAR RUUUUUUUUSH!
SG-1: Savannah’s back in the match! Revy’s getting to her feet! Hard right from Savannah! Now a left! Another right! She whips Revy into the steel frame of the chamber! She head towards the ring, climbing inside! Haruna sees this and head straights for Savannah who picks up the gummy bear baseball bat! She parries Haruna’s attack with the bokken sword! She dodges the kendo stick! Kick to the gut! She puts the baseball bat under Sakazaki’s neck and plants a DDT!
Gia: Aria’s hand is raised! The champ looks like she’s about to- BAT TO THE ARCHED STOMACH OF AZUMI! Goto’s reeling and rolls off Aria! Savannah picks up Haruna and whips her to the corner! STINGER SPLASH! Revy’s trying to come back into the ring! Savannah grabs her and whips her to the corner! A SECOND STINGER SPLASH! Azumi’s doubled over but Savannah whips her to a corner as well! THIRD STINGER SPLASH! Savannah’s on fire tonight at the US Bank Stadium! The crowd is on their feet, stomping their feet to the rhythm of the ‘Terminator’ theme! Savannah “The Machine” Sunshine is in kill mode!
SG-1: Aria is barely getting up, but is helped up by her friend! Jaxon is shocked that Savannah’s not using this as an opportunity to get the pin!
Aria: (off mic) What are you doing?
Savannah: (off mic) I won’t take advantage of you like this! Let’s take them out together first! Let’s do it for Brody!
Aria: (nods) For Brody!
SG-1: Savannah’s turned around, bat raised! Aria taps her on the shoulder and tells her to hold up for a moment. She watches Aria walk over to the empty pod reserved for Brody Sparks! She opens the pod and takes out a leather whip! That was the whip Brody Sparks was going to use for this match! She raises it for the fans to see! The camera is zooming in on the handle, and there’s a button there next to the words ‘End It’. Savannah nods and points at their three antagonists who are crawling along the mat, trying to come together! Aria calmly climbs into the ring, ready to unleash her full wrath upon them! Revy moves to the corner, fumbling with something in her pocket as Aria walks towards her, dragging the whip. She takes out that white mystery box, desperately trying to open it! Aria’s shaking her head, ready to go full Django! Savannah is holding Haruna and Azumi at bay, threatening them with her bat!
Gia: Revy opens the box, but drops it! Some kind of dark object falls from her hands and rolls under Aria. What the hell is that!?
(Aria looks down as Revy stares in fear, trying to scramble away)
SG-1: Is that a ger-
Aria: WHAT THE FU-
(Aria dives away just as the object explodes in a flash of bright light. The entire arena dives in cover. Security surround the chamber as all five competitors are laid out inside. Gia and SG-1 are huddled together behind their desk, peeking out every so often. Savannah is the first to get up as she stumbles about, blinking her eyes rapidly. Revy gets up, holding her head, but climbs back into the ring. Gia and SG-1 gets back in their seats)
Gia: Is it just me or was a flashbang ger-
SG-1: RECOIL! REVY JUST GAVE SAVANNAH THE STUNNER! Savannah bounces across the ring like a kickball! REVY GOES FOR THE PIN!
Ref: OOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Jasmine Peyton: Savannah Sunshine have just been eliminated!
SG-1: The fans are retaliating in full force as the worse case scenario for Aria has just happened! She wants to yell at the ref about Revy’s ‘surprise’, but realizes there’s no time! She has to act fast! Aria steps forward, but she’s disoriented as well! Haruna and Azumi were further from the blast, but they’re still down! Aria stumbles towards Revy, whip in hand! OUCH! The sound of the sonic boom crack! She just lashed her whip across Revy’s leg! Pants or not, she’s in serious trouble! Meanwhile officials are leading Savannah out of the chamber!! Aria screams in anger and WHIPS REVY AGAIN! This time across the small of her back! Wow I could hear the crack of the whip as she hits Revy for good measure! Revy’s worn out, rolling around in agony! She wraps the whip around Revy’s neck and presses the button!
SG-1: Is that smoke? It looks like the whip is generating heat as small trails of smoke is seen! Revy’s howling at the moon, trying to pull away, but the heat is hurting her hands! Revy’s totally helpless at Aria’s mercy! The champion is no longer having it! She’s in control of this match now! She hoists Revy in the air with the whip still around her neck! RAGS TO RICHES! She delivers a mean brainbuster, driving Revy’s head straight into the mat! She covers Revy!
Ref: OOOOONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWWWWWWWWOOOOOOO-
Gia: Haruna breaks the count! She starts stomping at Aria’s face, yelling at her in Japanese! Azumi is up and orders Aria to be tied up! Haruna strikes with a vicious roundhouse! Aria falls back, but is caught up Revy who drags her to the ropes! Haruna and Revy uses the ropes to bind Aria’s arms! The champ is on her knees, facing an amused Azumi! This isn’t right! This is a massacre!
SG-1: I doubt any of these three women even care what we think at this moment, or anyone’s opinion for that matter. Azumi picks up the whip and admires it for a second.
Azumi: (off mic) You thought you could use this to help you?
Gia: Azumi just LASHED the whip across the chest of Aria, who’s screaming in agony! Luckily, it made contact with her outfit and not her skin! Security needs to get into there now and end this!
SG-1: This is the Extreme Elimination Chamber Gia. Anything goes.
Azumi: (laughs) There’s nobody left to save you ‘CHAMP’!
SG-1: Azumi just struck Aria across the face with the whip’s handle!
Azumi: NOT Savannah!
SG-1: Whiplash across the left leg!
Azumi: NOT Aren!
Gia: She just slapped Aria across the face!
Azumi: NOT Cloud!
Gia: That cowhide leather just cracked against Aria’s exposed shoulder! I don’t know how much longer she can hold out!
Azumi: Definitely NOT Tarah!
SG-1: Boot to the midsection! Aria’s leaning forward, only supported by the ropes that have her tied up!
Gia: Azumi’s walking up to Aria with nothing but hate in her eyes!
Azumi: Certainly NOT Brody.
SG-1: Azumi just spat in Aria’s face.
Gia: Azumi is completely disrespecting the champion! Aria’s helpless at this point! She’s out numbered and barely hanging on! I would be surprised if she’s already out cold! Her is hair covering her face! Azumi orders Haruna and Revy to untie her and to drag Aria to the center of the ring!
Azumi: You see Aria, SHE never liked you and yet you represent her! You’re a fake, just like everyone else!
SG-1: Revy and Haruna are both holding Aria up as Azumi readies for her Kamigoye bicycle knee!
Azumi: (yells) Tonight, I surpass you!
SG-1: Azumi charges forward- ARIA PUSHES HARUNA IN FRONT OF HER! HARUNA GETS CAUGHT WITH THE KAMIGOYE! Revy tries to react- 187!!! STO with the Koji Clutch follow-up! Aria’s not letting go! The Champ desperately holds on, looking for the submission! Revy’s trying to escape, but Aria’s biting her arm! Revy’s screaming out in pain! THE CHAMP TIGHTENS HER GRIP! REVY TAPS! REVY TAPS!
Jasmine Peyton: Revy has just been eliminated!
Gia: The fans are back on their feet, cheering on the true ace of Empire! Aria is lying on the mat, trying to muster as much strength as possible to stay in this! Azumi’s is irate! She grabs Aria by the hair! She wants to end- ARIA JUST PUNCHED AZUMI RIGHT BETWEEN THE LEGS!
SG-1: That was unexpected! I don’t care what anyone says, it hurts for us girls too- Aria just rolled up Azumi!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEE! TWWWWWWWWOOOOOOO! THRRRRREEEEE-
SG-1: Azumi kicks out! Aria’s doing everything in her power to get through this! She has to find something that will get her past Azuna! Haruna’s holding her head, stirring- Aria covers her!
Ref: OOOONEEEE! TWOOOOO!
Gia: Haruna kicks out! Aria wanted to capitalize on the bicycle knee mishap, but it’s too late! You can see the tears of frustration go down the face of the champ! She’s looking up at the sky, just asking God- or maybe even a more familiar face for the strength to keep fighting! She stares at Azumi and Haruna who’s both trying to get up! Aria’s hitting the mat! She’s psyching herself up! A bent over Haruna stumbles right in between Aria’s legs who just stood up at the right moment! She gives a helpless Azumi the finger! She flips over Haruna….CANDYLAND DESTROYER! SHE HITS SAVANNAH’S FRONT FLIP PILEDRIVER ON HARUNA SAKAZAKI!!! She covers for the pin!
Ref/Crowd: OOOONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEE!
Jasmine Peyton: Haruna Sakazaki has just been eliminated!
SG-1: OH MY GOD! WHAT A REVERSAL OF FORTUNE! IN MERE MINUTES ARIA JAXON JUST EVENED THE ODDS! This is why she’s heralded as one of the greatest women wrestlers in the history of EAW! How can she keep going like this after all suffering through the beatings she’s taken! She even survived a flashbang grenade! Is there anything that can take this woman out!?
Gia: Azumi is getting back to her feet, screaming for Aria to stand up! Aria’s eyes is filled with vengeance as she moves towards Azumi! FOREARM TO THE FACE OF GOTO!
SG-1: Azumi answers back with one of her own!
Gia: Aria strikes back!
SG-1: Azumi hesitates, pulls back, and lands a stiff forearm!
Gia: Aria headbutts Azumi!
SG-1: Azumi SMACKS Aria across the face!
Gia: Aria returns the gesture!
Gia: Aria delivers another one!
Gia: Aria’s going on an onslaught of forearms and slaps!!
Crowd: YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!
SG-1: Aria whips Azumi to the corner, who rebounds from the ropes! Aria ducks the clothesline counter as she runs to the ropes! SLINGBLADE! Shades of Aren Mstislav and Stephanie Matsuda! Aria is back in the groove, fighting the pain at the same time! Azumi’s crawling on all fours! SPLIT-LEGGED YAKUZA KICK to side of Azumi’s face! Azumi has to find a way to fight back if she wants the Women’s Championship! Aria walks over- DROP TOEHOLD! Aria falls to the mat! JUJI-GATAME! Azumi has the cross armbar as she reaches out for the ropes! There’s no rope breaks in the match! Aria’s hitting Azumi with her free arm and manages to escape!
Gia: But at what cost, SG? Her arm is almost gone, and her energy’s almost depleted! At this point, she’s risking her career!
SG-1: She has to do what she can to keep the title! This is Empire! She’s the champ! Aria grabs Azumi’s hair with her good arm! Azumi punches Aria in the gut! She has the champ in the clinch! She’s firing off rapid-fire knee strikes! 1! 2! 3! 4! 5! 6! 7! Aria staggers back in the corner! She doesn’t want to be there! Azumi jogs to the other side of the corner! She makes a gun gesture at Aria’s head!
Azumi: (off mic) END. IT.
Gia: AZUMI CHARGES TOWARDS ARIA! THE CHAMP SLIPS BETWEEN THE ROPES AND AZUMI CRASHES AND BURNS! Azumi bounces off the turnbuckle, hitting the mat! Aria’s standing on the second rope with a wild look in her eyes! It looks like she wants to do a springboard maneuver, but she may have other things in mind! Aria climbs to the top turnbuckle! She’s not done there! She’s climbing to the top of the nearest pod! She’s atop the empty pod, the one reserved for Brody Sparks! She’s using every ounce of energy to do what she’s doing! She’s squats down, gauging the movement of her opponent! She’s in the high rent district! It’s high-risk even greater reward for her! She looks to be going for the California Crush! She hits this and it’s over! If she misses, she can kiss her reign goodbye!
SG-1: I don’t think Azumi realizes what’s going on at the moment! One California Crush could seal the deal! Azumi’s dizzy and she looks up ARIA TAKES FLIGHT! DIVING SOMERSAULT NECKBREAKER! SPARKS FLY! SPARKS FLY! AZUMI’S DOWN! ARIA LIFTS BOTH LEGS FOR THE COVER!!!!!

Jasmine Peyton: Your winner and STIIIILLLLLLL YOUR EAW WOMEN’S CHAMPION…ARIAAAA JAX-ON!

(The ‘Thank You Brody’ image appears in the tron again as Aria blows a heartfelt kiss towards it)
(We cut back to ringside where Rebecca Sawyer is standing by, looking somewhat nervous as she reads over her notecard. We can see her practicing quite a few times until she suddenly gains certainty.)
Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall….and is GAWD VS. GOD GIVEN GREATNESS: MR. DEDEDE VS. CHRIS ELITE! Should Chris Elite win then he inherits his own version of “The Gawd Contract”!
(The camera switches over to the stage where at first, nothing is going on. The area is dimmed and not a sound is coming from it until “Victory 2004” by 50 Cent, LLoyd Banks and The Notorious B.I.G. kicks in. As soon as it does, out steps Chris Elite who is jumping up and down and making the crowd go nuts! Chris Elite has a special diamond encrusted crown over his head and is wearing bright pink mink with a set of gucci designer entrance attire underneath it. With Chris Elite is a group of his close friends and family who see him off as he runs down the ramp.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, from Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 200 pounds! He is “God Given Greatness”……”Mr. TWO HUNDRED PERCENT”…..THE “NEW”….CHHHRIIIIISSSSSSSSSSS ELLLLLLLIIIITTTTEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Nick Angel: GOOSEBUMPS, KAWAJAI. I GOT GOOSEBUMPS WATCHING THIS MAN HEAD OUT TO THE RING. For years I have known Chris Elite and have seen him grow. Having hung out with him in the locker room several times when he initially returned for this comeback I knew that this run in EAW would be his most successful yet but even I didn’t expect this. Chris Elite didn’t follow the rules of corporate, he made a lane all on his own and set himself up for success! He promoted himself, he created this movement and now he has made his way to the biggest match of his career, a match with Mr. DEDEDE to lay claim to his own Gawd Contract. Chris Elite didn’t want anything of DEDEDE’s after thinking it through, he wanted something for him, he wanted something that would put him on the level of the greats and that contract will do just that! Chris has had months to prepare, he is looking good and feeling good. Specially made entrance attire – a pink mink over his shoulders which he showed off on social media earlier today that was apparently given to him by Killa Cam himself! Chris has support from all around the globe and in this arena with not just the people put his personal team who escorted him out, though he is missing one man in particular. Big Mike is not out to carry him to the ring but Chris can’t fret about it because here comes his opponent!
(The arena turns dark. The crowd murmurs wondering what is about to happen when suddenly image is shown on the titantron. It’s a young Mr. DEDEDE, making his debut on his first EAW show. He walks down the ramp, the video switching over to him making his entrance a year later as a champion. Different clips are spliced in of him heading to the ring, showing his evolution as he changes looks and accomplishments before we finally get a clip of him entering the ring. A montage of spears, con-chair-tos, Wings of Hell’s and title victories are shown rapidly before it suddenly stops at a scene in the present. Mr. DEDEDE is seen in a custom decorated office; A table of food to his side, a fountain behind him, and several beautiful women in front of him with his secretary Megan Raine leading the pack as he sits upon a throne. He gets up and steps down, walking to the camera with a smirk on his face as if he is personally heading to the ring in that moment. We get one last shot of his devious smile before the titantron flashes and we’re back to a dark arena. )
( More murmuring from the crowd starts up as the neon red kanji symbol for “God” blinks in and out on the minitron while the beginning sounds of “Dopamine Lit” by Lupe echoes throughout the arena on a loop. We then hear the beginning lyrics sound through the arena from a microphone.)
“Blood rushin’ to my head like coal
Plains on my mind like shade
Planes on my mind like stage”
(Lupe Fiasco himself shows up on a rising platform, rapping the lyrics to his song as the lights turn on and Mr. DEDEDE’s entrance video shows up, followed by the actual Mr. DEDEDE, heading over and dapping up Lupe as he performs before taking his spot on the stage. Mr. DEDEDE has on a skull cap with the neon red kanji symbol for “God” and is decked out in a brand new jacket laced with many of his different sponsors for this match on it. He takes a deep breath and then strikes a pose, raising up his hands as an extended pyro sequence begins, closing with a big finale of fireworks that leaves smoke on the stage before he heads down.)
Rebecca Sawyer: And his opponent, from Bridgeport Connecticut, currently residing in Calabasas, California! He weighed in at 230 pounds! He is “THE GAWD”…… “The Eye In The Sky”……The SIX Time World Champion…..ladies and gentleman the CHAIRMAN OF EAW…..MRRRRRRRRRRRR DEEEEEEEEEE….DEEEEEEEEEE…..DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE has arrived and right away this has turned into something special! The big match vibe is really kicking in! This man is making his way to the ring to compete for the first time since Pain For Pride Ten. Since being Chairman Mr. DEDEDE has tried to stay away from wrestling but just when he thought he was out this hotshot in Chris Elite pulled him back in. Mr. DEDEDE has been put into question and that’s something won’t stand for! As we saw in the video, Mr. DEDEDE has decided to step down from the throne, turn himself from chairman to Elitist this ONE TIME…and silence one of his employees. I for one couldn’t be more happy, it wouldn’t be Road to Redemption without Mr. DEDEDE, a guy who has built the foundation for shows like these off the performances he has given. The most decorated man in EAW history and arguably – nah, nah, the undisputed greatest of all time is back in the ring and he’s looking cool, calm and collected. Another night at the office, only figuratively for him this time as opposed to literal. We are in for a treat folks. This is the match being thought of the match of the century with all of the build up it’s had and it’s just moments away.
(Mr. DEDEDE gets into the ring and takes off his jacket as Chris Elite hands off his pink mink, gucci attire, crown and gold chains over to Rebecca Sawyer to take away, having now down to his ring gear. With everything removed and the two being checked for foreign objects, the referee signals for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Nick Angel: And so the bell rings, making this match official. After almost three months of build and anticipation, Mr. DEDEDE versus Chris Elite; The Gawd versus God Given Greatness is upon us!….It’s surreal almost. Not even the fans can believe it, they’re losing their minds out there in the crowd already getting things going with a dual chant for both competitors. They know this is going to be something special and so do the men in the ring as they stand there in their corners, taking it all, just soaking up this moment as they are not even sure how to start with all of the expectations that are being placed on their performances. They remain in their corners still, Chris Elite takes the moment to turn his head and raise his fist to get a greater rise out of the crowd. The “Fuck Ryan Adams” chants is starting to ring throughout the arena, being paced almost like a battle cry to pump up Chris as he is feeling it! He turns away from the fans, puts his focus back on a flustered Mr. DEDEDE and lets out a laugh as he finally steps out of the corner –AND MR. DEDEDE SEES THAT AS HIS CUE! HE FULL ON GOES RUNNING OUT OF HIS CORNER AT TOP SPEED! NO WAY, NOT AT THE START! MR.DEDEDE GOING WITH THE SPEEEAARRR!!!!!
Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE took off with that spear — BUT CHRIS ELITE TELEGRAPHED IT! ROUNNNDDDDHHHOOUUSSSEEEE KICCKKK!!! CHRIS ELITE STEPPED TO THE SIDE AT THE LAST SECOND AND LIFTED THAT LEG UP AS MR. DEDEDE WAS UNABLE TO STOP HIMSELF, RUNNING INTO THAT BLOW AT HIGH VELOCITY! THE KICKPAD OF CHRIS ELITE CRASHES RIGHT INTO MR. DEDEDE’S FACE POINT BLANK, THE SOUND OF THAT BOOT HITTING THE BRIDGE OF MR. DEDEDE’S NOSE MAKING A NOISE THAT IS SICKENING TO HEAR! EVEN I FELT THAT! MR. DEDEDE WAS MORE THAN ROCKED JUST ROCKED THERE, HE FELL FLAT ON HIS BACK FROM THAT KICK! Chris Elite is now standing over Mr. DEDEDE……HE’S STOMPING OUT! THE HEAVY BOOTS OF CHRIS ELITE LANDING ON MR. DEDEDE’S CHEST, ON HIS RIBS, ON HIS LEGS – OW! CHRIS ELITE GOT HIM IN THE JAW! Mr. DEDEDE was in a daze but now he is woken up and he is RATTLED, he doesn’t know what to do other than to get away! He’s rolling onto his stomach and is now crawling away in a retreat!
Nick Angel: Chris Elite chases after Mr. DEDEDE! He leaps toward our chairman as he is crawling…AND THEN LANDS ON TOP OF HIM WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRAIGHT TO THE SPINE AS MR. DEDEDE’S FACE GOES SKIDDING OVER THE CANVAS! Chris Elite is back to being over Mr. DEDEDE and is now teeing off on him with left and right hands, this is nuts! He won’t let up no matter how much Mr. DEDEDE needs a reprieve! Mr. DEDEDE slides out from under Chris Elite’s mount and then finally escapes out of the ring through the bottom rope! Mr. DEDEDE has to take a breather from that surprise flurry, WOW! Mr. DEDEDE is wondering what the hell just happened, he was so riled up and so ready to end this quickly that the moment Chris Elite got out of the corner he was lining him up; big mistake!
Kawajai: It was also a big mistake to not continue being a moving target just then, Chris Elite has him in his sights now as he runs to the ropes, rebounds off of them and then races back to the side of the ring where DEDEDE is as he SHOOTS OUT OF THE RING WITH SUICIDE DIVE THAT SENDS MR. DEDEDE CAREENING INTO THE STEEL BARRICADE! CHRIS ELITE DRIVING HIMSELF INTO DEDEDE’S MIDSECTION LIKE A BULLET FIRING OUT OF THE BARREL OF A GUN AND HE IS NOT STOPPING AS HE GATHERS HIS FOOTING AND CARRIES ON WITH SHOULDER THRUSTS PRESSING HIM FURTHER INTO THAT CROWD RESTRAINT! He continues with that barrage of attacks before standing up straight, grabbing Mr. DEDEDE by the hair…AND THEN THROWING HIM INTO THE STEEL RING POST!
Nick Angel: Mr. DEDEDE’s head goes bouncing off of the post and he is spun around upon impact, moving on spaghetti legs! He’s helpless as Chris Elite follows him, grabs him by the tights and then hauls him right back into the ring! Mr. DEDEDE rolls around before settling into the middle of the ring, not bothering to move due to needing a break but it might prove to be costly! Chris Elite hops up onto the apron, gripping the ropes tightly and bending his knees as he preps himself! Look at the confidence in his eyes, he really thinks he can close the deal this early on, and it’s not too hard to believe! He leverages himself into a standing position on the ropes! SPRINGBOARD 450 ONTO MR. DEDEDE! WAIT! NO! Mr. DEDEDE comes to just in time to get out of dodge! Chris Elite luckily lands on his feet, saving himself from a bad fall! Mr. DEDEDE heads to the corner to help himself up, unaware that Chris Elite avoided any injury — AS GOD GIVEN GREATNESS RACES BEHIND HIM LOOKING FOR A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!
Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE’s senses kick in as he expects Chris Elite coming and he again moves out of the way, letting Chris Elite hit those turnbuckles! Chris Elite staggers back after inadvertently hurting himself and walks right into the clutches of DEDEDE! Mr. DEDEDE hooks him by the jaw; sitout rear mat slam! TRIPLE D DRIVER DELIVERED AS MR. DEDEDE FLIPS ONTO HIS FEET AS SOON AS IT CONNECTS AND LETS OUT A SIGH OF RELIEF! Mr. DEDEDE was finally able to kill the roll that Chris Elite was on, thank God for him! He’s not even celebrating it, he’s just standing around and licking his wounds, just relieved he was able to cut Chris off….but now that relief turns to anger as he gives Chris a shoot kick to the stomach while he’s down! Time to get to plotting his next move! Mr. DEDEDE has vengeance on the mind and in his eyes as he makes his way over to Chris Elite, grabbing him by the throat, practically strangling him as he lifts him up off of the mat!
Nick Angel: Mr. DEDEDE is ringing Chris Elite’s neck and smacking him around! Blatant backhand to the face out of disrespect! He rears back with that same hand with another open hand slap! OH AND WHEN IT COMES BACK IT TURNS INTO A CLOSED FIST! Mr. DEDEDE’s anger has been upped with each strike as he turns to straight up punches that are going unblocked from Chris! OH! Then he continues the series with an uppercut straight to the gut! Double axehandle to the back while Chris Elite is kneeled over! And Mr. DEDEDE takes a step back into the ropes so he can come back over and hit Chris in the face with a boot! Chris Elite was on his knees and almost fell over but put his hands out and pushed himself off of the mat to keep himself upward — LAUNCHING HIMSELF RIGHT INTO DEDEDE’S CLUTCHES AS DEDEDE SEES THAT AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO CATCH HIM ON THE CHIN WITH A KNEE! Chris Elite is on his fours, trying to shake the cobwebs while Mr. DEDEDE brings him up to his feet! He drapes Chris’ arm over him, grabs the side of his trunks…HEEEEAAAVVESSS HIM UP — BUT NO! Chris Elite weighs himself back down and switches it up on DEDEDE! Vertical suplex by Chris! OH! Mr. DEDEDE floats over and lands on his feet behind the young man!
Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE has Chris Elite by the waist! Release German suplex INTO THE CORNER! The back of Chris’ head hitting the turnbuckles as he steps out of that situation feeling major effects of whiplash! Even then though Chris is still willing to come out as Mr. DEDEDE swinging! Mr. DEDEDE avoids the hit and then grasps Chris’ arm! Chris Elite struggles with him but Mr. DEDEDE bears down on that arm until he no longer resists! Mr. DEDEDE is getting into position as he has Chris in a half nelson…AND THEN PLANTS HIM WITH THAT VARIATION OF THE BULLDOG! Chris Elite hits that mat and is hurting but he does not allow himself to stay on the ground for long, ruining any hopes DEDEDE had in attempting a cover! Chris Elite starts to rise up…AND GO BARRELING INTO MR. DEDEDE AS MR. DEDEDE HAS TO RESTRAIN HIM WITH A FRONT FACELOCK! Chris Elite grabs the hand of DEDEDE to pry at his grip and then twists out of it!
Nick Angel: Enzuigiri to the side of the head by Chris Elite! Mr. DEDEDE is momentarily stunned giving Chris Elite some much needed recovery time! He is stood up in front of the dazed Mr. DEDEDE and looks to run off but Mr. DEDEDE keeps him from getting too far thanks to a handful of Chris’ faux hawk! He pulls him in; dragon sleeper position! Inverted facelock backbreaker! Chris Elite shoots up from the force of that and is then turned around to face Mr. DEDEDE! Reverse irish whip set up…AND THEN A REVERSE STO TO COMPLETE THE COMBINATION! Mr. DEDEDE turns Chris Elite over and gets on top of him with a hook of the leg! We have ourselves the first cover of the match, could it be the only one needed?
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWWWWWWW —
Kawajai: Kickout by Chris Elite! Mr. DEDEDE shakes his head in disapproval, almost like he’s saying that Chris Elite made the wrong choice by not staying down! Mr. DEDEDE is getting back to business as he goes to pick up Chris Elite once again — but Chris Elite with the jawbreaker! Chris Elite is getting off of his knees and onto a vertical base BUT MR. DEDEDE JUMPS UP IN THE AIR LOOKING FOR THE CUTTER! WOAH! CHRIS ELITE PUSHES DEDEDE OFF OF HIM BEFORE MR. DEDEDE COULD BRING HIM DOWN, LEAVING HIM TO FALL ONTO THE CANVAS! Mr. DEDEDE is laid on the ground as Chris has his back to him AND DELIVERS A STANDING MOONSAULT, WHICH CHRIS DUBS “THE PEOPLE’S MOONSAULT” IN MOCKERY TO DEDEDE! Mr. DEDEDE is covering himself up after that and looking to get some space but Chris Elite is there with him the whole way! No chance of leaving the ring this time! LARIAT right as Mr. DEDEDE was getting back the strength to move about! Mr. DEDEDE does not let himself remain on the ground for long! He’s back at it, running at Chris Elite, ANOTHER LARIAT, THIS TIME A JUMPING VARIATION, BY CHRIS ELITE TO STOP HIM IN HIS TRACKS!
Nick Angel: Chris Elite is building some serious momentum here, he doesn’t even want to wait for Mr. DEDEDE to be fully up this time before he goes at him! DROPKICK BY CHRIS! Those feet of Chris’ hit DEDEDE and he gets sent out of the middle rope and tumbling back to the outside of the ring! The light bulb is going off in Chris Elite’s head, he wants to do it again! He’s chomping at the bit to see Mr. DEDEDE standing at ringside again! Chris Elite is calling to the fans, telling them to get ready to watch this! Mr. DEDEDE is up from his terrifying fall to the floor and is unaware of Chris Elite as he takes a full head of steam! Chris goes running as Mr. DEDEDE now sees what is going on! ANOTHER SUICIDE DIVE BY CHRIS ELITE! WAIT! NO! Chris Elite has to put the brakes on it as Mr. DEDEDE literally mows down the camera man right next to him in order to get out of the way! Chris Elite was only able to stick his head out of the ropes before catching on thankfully. He steps up onto the apron and is daring Mr. DEDEDE to come to him! Chris Elite suckers him in and runs down the apron looking for a drive by kick to the skull!
Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE drops and then kips up once Chris Elite passes him! A sweep of the legs, tripping him up on that apron! Chris Elite has lost his balance on the edge of the ring, leaving him open for Mr. DEDEDE to yank him off of the apron by the foot and place him on his shoulders! Mr. DEDEDE has Chris Elite up in the air in Electric Chair position! Mr. DEDEDE is walking around with him, ignoring the pain of Chris Elite attacking him to get out of this as he makes his way to the guard rail AND DELIVERS A FACEBUSTER ONTO THE CROWD RESTRAINT, GETTING A SCARE OUT OF THE FANS IN THE FRONT ROW AS THEY ARE UP CLOSE WITH THEIR BUDDY CHRIS! Chris Elite being forced to kiss the steel as his mouth is now bloodied! The fans are backed away at the sight and are cheering him on, sending jeers Mr. DEDEDE’s away as he pulls Chris apart from that barricade! Mr. DEDEDE flips Chris over onto his shoulder AND A SLAM ONTO THE APRON NEXT! Chris is laid up on that apron which appears to be the placing Mr. DEDEDE was wanting! He spins Chris around so that his legs are now in the ring while his upper body is left hanging out! He gets his arm underneath the jaw of Chris….
Nick Angel: He starts to pull Chris out in hangman position….AND THEN DRIVES HIM INTO THE FLOOR WITH THE DEDEDE DDT! MR. DEDEDE USING THE ENVIRONMENT TO LIFT CHRIS UP FARTHER THAN HE COULD HAVE ON HIS OWN, SPIKING HIM ON HIS NECK! Mr. DEDEDE with some attempted murder in the form of that DDT! The referee leans over the ropes and looks on in concern as he raises his hands up to begin a count!
Referee: ONNEEEE —
Mr. DEDEDE: (w/o mic) Continue that count and it’ll be the last call you make in this company. You better step the fuck back.
Nick Angel: Mr. DEDEDE just gave that official a look of absolute death as the referee immediately listened to his demands and walked away. Mr. DEDEDE doesn’t want someone breathing down his neck with restrictions, he left the desk of the chairman position for the night to deal with Chris Elite the way that he has wanted to, he’s looking for that straight up win AND TO DISH OUT PAIN AS HE HITS CHRIS ELITE WITH ANOTHER DEDEDE DDT ONTO THAT HARD FLOOR, JESUS H. CHRIST! Chris Elite’s head made a “SPLAT” on the floor when that was hit! His face is pushed up against that dirty floor as he is shaking! Chris Elite might be seriously hurt…or psyching himself up! He’s willing himself up after two DEDEDE DDT’’s! He’s not even going to miss a beat! Mr. DEDEDE is looking at this right in front of him and it still seems that he can’t believe it!
Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE lets out a big amount of air and decompresses for a second in deep thought. Our Chairman is calming his nerves and then getting back onto that grind! He slides back into the ring and then watches Chris Elite as he stands himself up! We can see now that Chris Elite is no longer just lightly bloodied in the mouth but his head has been busted open hard way from the DDTs as a trickle of blood is going down his forehead and streaming across his nose. Nothing that Chris Elite can’t wipe away though as it is flowing lightly; he’s getting up and getting back into match ready condition! Mr. DEDEDE is going to change that! Mr. DEDEDE rebound off of the ropes opposite to Chris! A FOOT OFF OF THE MIDDLE ROPE FOR A LAUNCHING PAD AND THEN HE GOES FLIPPING ALL OF THE WAY OVER WITH THE TOPE CON HILLLLOOOOOOO!!!!! VINTAGE MR. DEDEDE ONTO CHRIS ELITE! MR. DEDEDE CRASHES ON CHRIS AND IS STOOD UP AFTER, HE DIDN’T EVEN FALL WITH CHRIS UPON CONTACT!
Nick Angel: Mr. DEDEDE deciding to top Chris’ suicide dive with something much more grand and it paid off! He grabs Chris Elite and guides him back up to his feet, taking him back into the ring! Mr. DEDEDE walks up the ring steps and now climbs up to the top rope……360 DIVING CROSSBODY ONTO CHRIS ELITE BEFORE HE EVEN HAS A MOMENT TO BREATHE! HE STAYS ON TOP OF HIM IN A LATERAL PRESS! The referee checks to see if the shoulders are down….IT’S A GO! WE HAVE GOT A COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO—
Nick Angel: Chris Elite again gets that shoulder up! Chris Elite turns over as he shoots that arm up, something I’m thinking is a strategically move to keep Mr. DEDEDE from thinking he’s available for another pin! Chris Elite is pulling himself up using the pant legs of Mr. DEDEDE. Mr. DEDEDE pie faces him as Chris is forced to find his footing on his own! Chris Elite WITH THE PELE! HEAD SHOT! HE GOT MR. DEDEDE THERE! Chris Elite is preparing a comeback! He springboards off of the ropes! Spinning back elbow on return! NO! CAUGHT! Mr. DEDEDE showing some serious strength as he POPS CHRIS ELITE UP INTO THE SKY AND CATCHES HIM ON THE WAY DOWN WITH THAT CUTTER HE WAS LOOKING FOR! Mr. DEDEDE hits that move and immediately slithers over into the corner, grabbing those ropes at the turnbuckle and grinning as he gets into position! Mr. DEDEDE has taken a knee in that corner, is pulling back tightly on the rope with one hand and is beckoning for Chris to get up with the other! He’s bouncing around, he’s yelling, he’s hyped up for this, ready to take off like a runner at the starting line, waiting to hear the sounds of that pistol, that signal for the fun to begin! Chris Elite is almost up and DEDEDE’s excitement is on the verge of bursting! The crowd is watching with baited breath as they are unsure of how this will go!
Kawajai: We can all see what is next….SPEEEEEEAAAAAAAAARRRRRRR!!!!
Nick Angel: Hang on, what? LEAP FROG BY CHRIS ELITE!
Kawajai: HUH? Chris Elite jumped over the spear as Mr. DEDEDE was forced to stop and switch directions as he does a U-turn…INTO THE BOX OFFICE SMASH! THE BOX OFFICE SMASH LANDS FLUSH ON MR. DEDEDE AS OUR CHAIRMAN JUST DROPPED LIKE A TON OF BRICKS! THE SUPERKICK BEING DRAWN FROM OUT OF NOWHERE AND TAKING DEDEDE OFF OF HIS FEET AS THE CROWD IS UNGLUED! THEY’RE TELLING CHRIS ELITE TO GO ON AHEAD! HE CAN’T STEW ON THIS, HE’S GOT TO CAPITALIZE IMMEDIATELY! CHRIS ELITE DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS OF MR. DEDEDE, MAKING SURE TO SINK THAT PIN IN TIGHT AS HE URGES TO REFEREE TO COUNT!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRRRRR —
Kawajai: NO! EVEN WITH HOW LOCKED IN THAT PIN WAS, MR. DEDEDE WAS STILL ABLE TO SHIFT HIS BODY AROUND AND GET A SHOULDER OFF OF THE MAT! Chris Elite is frustrated but knows that he must not let up, not after he is just now truly getting an opening! Mr. DEDEDE kicks his feet at him to try and keep him at bay but Chris Elite grips the ankles, drags Mr. DEDEDE around, AND THERE HE GOES BRIEFLY PULLING MR. DEDEDE UP TO BRING HIM BACK DOWN WITH THAT SITOUT POWERBOMB! Chris Elite then turns over so that Mr. DEDEDE is underneath his body while he holds his legs. Our Chairman is in a bad way, Chris Elite is looking to apply the Boston crab! Chris Elite is wrenching that in as Mr. DEDEDE cries out in pain! Chris is rocking back and forth, falling back deeper and deeper each time he does so to bend up Mr. DEDEDE’s body! Mr. DEDEDE is biting his fists, punching the mat, doing everything to keep his mind off of that draining submission hold but is starting to cave! He has that hand up, all he’s got to do is drop it down and submit! Ah! He’s digging his nails into the canvas and has begun literally clawing his way across the ring! The meddle of Mr. DEDEDE is being tested and I have to give it to him, he’s making some good progress, he’s starting to move over to those ropes and getting ready to set up some sort of break hopefully!
Nick Angel: Chris Elite is catching on and figures out he has to switch it up! He turns his head and sees Mr. DEDEDE getting fiery! He’s gotta cool that by changing it up! He drops the boston crab and then gets on Mr. DEDEDE’s back and applies an STF! Chris Elite is sinking that in, getting his forearm against DEDEDE’s throat and then grinding his knuckles into the top of DEDEDE’s skull! PUNCH TO THE CROWN OF THE HEAD! Chris Elite calls off the submission after that and stands up while DEDEDE is lying face first on the canvas. He binds back the arms….AND DEADLIFTS DEDEDE IN A STRAIGHT JACKET SUPLEX! CHRIS ELITE BRIDGES IT!
Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE with the shoulder up, breaking the bridge! Chris Elite still has the arms binded back as he gets up from that failed pin attempt! Chris Elite is standing, the hell is he trying to do….HE’S GOT MR. DEDEDE UP IN AN ELEVATED DOUBLE CHICKENWING, CHRIS IS POWERING THROUGH, FIGHTING DEDEDE’S WEIGHT ADVANTAGE AND HOLDING HIM UP! An unusual move by Chris here! He uses the elevated chickenwing to TRANSITION AS HE TURNS DEDEDE UPSIDE DOWN IN A CRADLE POSITION! DEDEDE’S LEGS ARE TUCKED UNDER CHRIS’ ARMS NOW — KNEELING REVERSE PILEDRIVER! CHRIS ELITE WITH A TWIST ON THE TOMBSTONE I DON’T THINK WE’VE SEEN IN EAW AS MR. DEDEDE HAS BEEN STACKED UP IN THAT CRADLE! THIS IS A MOVE THAT CAN INSTANTLY COUNT FOR A PIN ATTEMPT, THE REF WITH THE COUNT!
Nick Angel: Another shift of the shoulder off of the mat! Chris has been going for pin after pin since the match turned back into his favor and has done pinning combinations that are complicated and hard to get out of. There is this sense of urgency with Chris that is making him do everything he can to get a three count. Mr. DEDEDE legs are still up in the air from him being squished up in that cradle. Chris grabs DEDEDE’s foot and flips DEDEDE forward, rotating Mr. DEDEDE back up onto his feet, AND THEN BUCKS UP WITH A HEADBUTT AS SOON AS HE’S STANDING! Mr. DEDEDE already had to feel off from being made to stand up so fast, that certainly added to his confusion. Mr. DEDEDE falls back, about to rebound into Chris’ clutches, but saving himself with an evasive combat roll! Mr. DEDEDE ducked his advance but he won’t get too far! Chris Elite makes DEDEDE get back over to him! BACKSTABBER! Mr. DEDEDE folds up after that move as Chris Elite leans in to place him a cravat; he is not done! He’s nudging DEDEDE up to his feet, sprinkles him with some knees A BICYCLE KNEE FOR GOOD MEASURE, AND THEN RUNS UP THE ROPES WITH DEDEDE’S HEAD IN THAT HOLD, FLIPPING IN THE AIR FOR THE SLICED BREAD NUMBER TWO, MAKING SURE TO LAND ON HIS FEET ON THE WAY DOWN TO NOT MISS ANY PRECIOUS SECONDS! CHRIS ELITE IS BEING QUICK AND INNOVATIVE WITH HIS OFFENSE!
Kawajai : Chris Elite steps between the ropes and is on the apron! He’s climbing up the turnbuckles to the top rope! He’s got himself perched and is standing up straight, his balancing is absolutely perfect, this is where Chris is at home, he’s at the top like being there is second nature to him. The crowd is at a fever pitch but Chris Elite is not paying them any mind as he has a razor sharp focus on the body of Mr. DEDEDE! Chris is in the zone and he is calling his shot! A leap of faith by Chris….BIOOONNNNIIIICCCC STTOOOMMMMPPPPPPPP!!!!
Nick Angel: OH NO! MR. DEDEDE! MR. DEDEDE WAKES UP AND JUST LIKE WITH THE 450, DEDEDE MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY!
Kawajai: Chris Elite didn’t have to worry about saving himself due to how the move is performed but it’s still not the best landing. Chris jumped about seven or eight feet just to hit nothing, no cushioning from the body of Mr. DEDEDE, only hard canvas. Chris Elite definitely hurt his leg, you can tell by how he’s favoring it! Chris winces as he touches it but sucks it up and turns around as he realizes Mr. DEDEDE needs to still be checked on….AND OH MY GOD! MR. DEDEDE GOES RUNNING AT CHRIS! SPEAR — SPEAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! MR. DEDEDE TEARS INTO CHRIS ELITE WITH THAT SPEAR AS IT FINALLY CONNECTS! MR. DEDEDE PUT HIS EVERYTHING INTO THAT TO MAKE UP FOR HIS OPPONENT’S DOMINANCE; CHRIS ELITE WENT INSIDE OUT! WHERE DID THAT SPEAR COME FROM? A SWITCH TURNED ON AND MR. DEDEDE ROSE UP TO DELIVER IT! THAT ADRENALINE! THAT INSTINCT! ONE SHOT WAS ALL DEDEDE NEEDED IN THAT MOMENT! MR. DEDEDE LOOKS UP FROM WHAT HE DID AND HIS MOUTH IS OPEN IN AMAZEMENT OF HIMSELF! CHRIS ELITE LETS OUT A GROAN AND HOLDS HIS STOMACH! THAT DOES NOT SOUND GOOD! MR. DEDEDE WITH A SPLASH ONTO CHRIS TO PILE ON! COVER! THIS CAN’T BE IT, NO WAY!
(Members of the audience look on at the cover in shock, holding their heads and covering their mouths while they watch the pin intently.)
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Nick Angel: It’s over- WHAT, NO! CHRIS ELITE KICKED OUT! CHRIS ELITE KEEPS THE MATCH IN PROGRESS AFTER WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A KILLING BLOW! THE CROWD WENT FROM LOOKING LIKE THEY WERE ATTENDING A FUNERAL TO BE OUT OF THEIR SEATS IN EXCITEMENT! MR. DEDEDE IS BEING EGGED ON AND SPITED WITH CHANTS OF “FUCK RYAN ADAMS” HAVING PICKED UP ONCE AGAIN IN SUPPORT OF CHRIS ELITE – OR WHAT’S LEFT OF CHRIS ELITE! CHRIS KICKED OUT BUT HE IS NOT IN GOOD SHAPE FROM THAT SPEAR! HE’S COUGHING AND WHEEZING, THE WIND IS TAKEN OUT OF HIM AS HE IS SPITTING UP, HE CAN BARELY EVEN BREATHE! HE’S STILL FIGHTING THAT AS HE GOES TO STAND UP! HE’S A SITTING DUCK! MR. DEDEDE IS AIMING FOR A FOLLOW UP! Mr. DEDEDE goes to grab Chris….CHRIS WITH THE PUSH! SPAGHETTI LEGGED AND ALL CHRIS IS BEING DEFIANT
Chris Elite: (w/o mic) FUCK YOU RYAN!
Kawajai: CHRIST! MR. DEDEDE WITH A BOOT – AND IT CATCHES CHRIS ELITE IN THE NECK! CHRIS ELITE DROPS DOWN HOLDING HIS THROAT AS HE IS COUGHING AND LETTING OUT GROANS FROM HIS ACHES OF PAIN! He’s still able to get on his knees and then get up fully but it doesn’t last! There goes Mr. DEDEDE with a neckbreaker to take advantage following that hit! Chris Elite is getting up after that with no hesitation! He is eating these attacks like they are nothing, willing himself through everything! Chris Elite feels up his head which has started to open up once again and start up a stream of blood due to him not tending to it. He looks at the blood stains now on his hands, just staring at that palm in deep thought…and then he goes and balls that palm up into a fist! Chris Elite’s hand is shaking, his anger building up! He puts that fist in the air to capture the admiration of the audience! He’s using his anger, his adrenaline and the people behind him to charge himself up to continue this fight and – OH! Mr. DEDEDE with a back elbow and gut punch combo! Chris Elite doubles over as Mr. DEDEDE gains control of him, grabbing him by the arm and then pressing him against the ropes so he can fling him with an irish whip! Chris Elite can not stop the momentum DEDEDE forced upon him as he hits the ropes! Mr. DEDEDE preps for a back body drop in anticipation…BUT CHRIS ELITE DOES A FLIP OVER MR. DEDEDE’S BODY, ROLLING OFF OF HIS BACK AND THEN LANDING ON HIS FEET BEHIND HIM! Mr. DEDEDE is looking up wondering what is going on AND THERE GOES CHRIS ELITE JUMPING ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! REVERSE HURRICANRANA, SPIKING MR. DEDEDE!.
Nick Angel: Chris Elite is starting to pick up some confidence once again! Mr. DEDEDE’s head bounces up off of the mat after that reverse hurricanrana! A second variation – THE MINI-RANA IS DELIVERED AT EXTREMELY CLOSE DISTANCE, A MOVE THAT TAKES DEDEDE’S FACE STRAIGHT TO THE MAT ONCE MORE! CHRIS SHOOTS RIGHT BACK UP TO A VERTICAL BASE FOR MORE! SHINING WIZARD TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Mr. DEDEDE can’t even begin to fall over before Chris Elite rushes to shove him back into place! Chris Elite backs away in order to pick up speed for his next plan of attack, but while he runs back to Mr. DEDEDE, DEDEDE catches him off guard with an combat roll evasion to get by, POPPING UP OUT OF IT FOR A SPEEEAAARRRRRR! UGH! STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS WITH THE WHO SHOT YA NUMBER TWO!!! THAT CLOSE RANGE DROPKICK HITTING DEDEDE LIKE A SHOTGUN BLAST! MR. DEDEDE BATTLES ON, BUT OOUUCCHHH!!! CHRIS! CHRIS ELITE LEAPS UP! BIONIC STOMP ONTO THE STANDING DEDEDE RIGHT AFTERWARD! CHRIS MADE UP FOR EARLIER BY SUCCEEDING THIS TIME! WITH NO TOP ROPE, NO LAID OUT OPPONENT, JUST THE VERTICAL LEAP OF CHRIS! CHRIS STEPS OFF OF THE CHEST OF MR DEDEDE, GOES TO SPRINGBOARD….AND CHANGES DIRECTION AFTER HE DROPS OFF FOR A FROG SPLASH! WHERE ARE THESE MOVES COMING FROM!?
Kawajai: I don’t know but they may be what Chris needed to get that pin! Chris looks to cover DEDEDE — BUT DEDEDE WITH A LAST RESORT SWING INTO THE SHIN OF CHRIS! Chris Elite removes himself so that he may favor that for a moment! He turns back around for revenge on Mr. DEDEDE but that few second breather was all Mrr. DEDEDE needed to start to stir! Chris Elite gets close to him while he is kneeling and so our Chairman reacts by hitting him with a spinebuster! A move that was done moreso because he HAD to do it than him actually having the energy for it, Mr. DEDEDE nearly crashes from exhaustion after giving it. Mr. DEDEDE remains on top of Chris, taking a couple of deep breathes, getting back his strength, and then without any warning he gets his wind back and starts pulling Chris from off of the mat to into the air with his feet wiggling around above him! Chris is in a vertical position — SITOUT SUPLEX SLAM! THE EGO DEATH DRIVER! Mr. DEDEDE with an emphatic delivery of that move and while he’s sat down on the canvas following it, with the top of Chris Elite’s head in front of him, he seizes the opportunity and wraps his legs around Chris in a headscissors before turning over AND LIFTING HIS LEGS UP AND DOWN OFF THE GROUND TO SMASH CHRIS INTO THE MAT! AGAIN AND AGAIN, REARRANGING THE FACIAL FEATURES OF ELITE! MR. DEDEDE CHIMES IN WITH CHANTS OF “DIE! DIE! DIE!” TO GO WITH EACH BRUTAL MAT SLAM! MR. DEDEDE IS HAVING THE TIME OF HIS LIFE WITH THIS AND WHEN HE’S DONE, HE CAPS IT OFF WITH A LEG DROP TO THE SKULL! MR. DEDEDE DUSTING OFF THE PEOPLE’S LEG DROP AND IT GOT ONE HELL OF A REACTION OUT OF CHRIS ELITE!
Nick Angel: Mr. DEDEDE stands up places his foot on Chris Elite’s chest for a nonchalant cover…..
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWW —
Nick Angel: Chris Elite of course gets his shoulder up. I don’t think Mr. DEDEDE was even looking for a win there, that was more out of boredom and playing games with Chris to get him motivated. Chris Elite found some from the reserves quite a few times but right now he appears lifeless. Wait, no! He’s scraping from them again! Chris Elite using yet another one of his nine lives as he is getting up, punch drunk yet resilient! Mr. DEDEDE is rolling his eyes as Chris advances to him. Mr.DEDEDE sees it coming from a mile away and gets to the side before stepping back into view to grasp at Chris, what is he – THE GRAND SLAM! MR. DEDEDE BRINGING BACK THE FALLING SIDE SLAM FOR THIS SPECIAL OCCASION AND IT LOOKED BETTER THAN EVER! CHRIS’ BODY VISIBLY BENT AS THE FORCE OF THAT MOVE MUST HAVE RATTLED HIS SPINE!
Kawajai: What I am wondering is why Mr. DEDEDE isn’t covering….oh. He wants to carry on with some more offense, he doesn’t want to just leave well enough alone and see if he can get a three! He drags up the half conscious carcass of Chris Elite and gives out a SECOND GRAND SLAM! This one contorts Chris Elite’s body even more than the last now! And NOOWWW, he settles for that cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Kawajai: Chris Elite gets his shoulder up, BUT AS HIS BODY SHIFTS SO DOES MR. DEDEDE’S! Mr. DEDEDE moves around and tangles his body with Chris’, not allowing him any movement! A KICK OUT RIGHT INTO THAT KOJI CLUTCH! The Koji Clutch is being applied in textbook fashion! Chris is put into that submission and he instantly breaks into a panic upon realization of what’s happening! That will wake you up for sure! He’s freaking out! Yelling, kicking, jerking himself about, but with how constricting the submission is, struggling might be making things worse for him! He’s simply tiring himself out and lessening his breathing!
Nick Angel: You’re right. Every attempt made at breaking through leads Chris right into DEDEDE’s iron grip and hurting him as a result. DEDEDE is having those hands LOCKED. His legs is tied into it as well! Chris Elite has been firmly taken to the ground to die and it’s looking like it could be the end! He wants to fight but he is starting to fade! All that he has in his repertoire are some feeble hits to Mr. DEDEDE’ hands and some light tugs hoping to break apart the submission. DEDEDE pushes that leg of his up into Chris’ face and bares down on Chris’ neck with his arm strength at the same time! Chris’ head is caught in between the pressure of both of DEDEDE’s limbs and his face is turning red because of it! Mr. DEDEDE is squeezing Chris’ head! His blood is pouring down wore now too! Chris’ head looks like it’s on the verge of popping off of his shoulders! You can see it in Chris Elite’s eyes just how much he is suffering right now. His eyes may bulge out of their sockets! His hands are shivering and he can’t close his mouth or swallow as he holds onto that one breath he still has! He is choking up and he is probably about a few seconds away from a pass out!
Kawajai: The referee is suggesting that he tap out but Chris is blocking out his instruction and just focusing on his situation. He is forcing himself to stay awake! He should have blacked out by now. His body is telling him to shut down to avoid permanent damage to his head but Chris’ attitude is that he’d literally rather die than give Mr. DEDEDE that satisfaction. This is the mach that Chris had asked for all season, he made this match for himself; he set the stage! This is the match of Chris Elite’s career and he’s here to lay it all out, he’ll be damned if Mr. DEDEDE gets any bragging rights! Half of his face is unrecognizable by the blood painting his face, the other is red like a tomato on its own from a lack of oxygen. Chris can’t even get up off the ground as DEDEDE plays the role of a human anchor that is holding Chris down. Chris’ current condition looks like that of a literal murder victim – this whole thing seems without hope and pointless to continue with at this stage!
Nick Angel: Well Chris must still see something salvageable. Chris is one prideful, hard headed son of a bitch but he is still a smart guy and is all about self preseveration. That blood flow of his is still going so it is not completely cut off. Mr. DEDEDE’s submission can’t be as airtight as it appears and that’s enough for me to bet on Chris. Mr. DEDEDE himself is starting to falter. His muscles must be tiring out from doing this submission too. He couldn’t have expected the Koji Clutch to need to last this long and he’s slipping. He is still in the driver’s seat but I don’t see him keeping this up! At the same time the crowd is literally BEGGING Chris Elite to get past this! Chris touches the grip of Mr. DEDEDE and they perk up! Chris Elite is grabbing the leg that’s in his face and is pinning it back! Mr. DEDEDE is seeing Chris Elite take action and it’s like he has seen a ghost! Chris Elite takes his fist and is BATTERING Mr. DEDEDE as Mr. DEDEDE is doing his best to weather the storm the same way that Chris was! Chris is fighting for his life, this is his last stand! The crowd is yelling for Chris Elite to give this guy hell!
Kawajai: Look what’s going on behind the submission! Chris’ legs are moving around, building up traction, He’s scaling up to his feet…..and he’s pulling DEDEDE, who has him in the Koji Clutch still, with him? DEDEDE just yelled an adamant “NO!” His plan is falling apart and there’s no explanation! How is this happening? Chris Elite is pushing his body beyond its limitations! This is the definition of being Mr. 200 %! The look on Chris’ face…this is desire; he wants this more than anything. His face is that of a strained expression, he has a fiery stare, his cheeks are puffed out as if he’s exhausting all the air left in his lungs! Chris Elite has risen! He is up! He has survived two Grand Slams, almost FIVE MINUTES in that unbearable Koji Clutch and he is looking like he’s going through war! DEDEDE is left helpless, hanging upside down off of him as Chris leverages him up further. Chris paces over to the corner! BUUUUCCCCKKLLEEEEBBBOOOMMMBBBBB!!!! DEDEDE is leaning up into that corner as Chris leans over and breathes in relief! He is free! He can rest! Chris lets out an assuring “WOO!” to the audience – BUT OH MY GOD!
Nick Angel: SPEAAAAARRRRRR!!! Mr. DEDEDE sprinted out of that corner for the spear, nailing the unsuspecting Chris Elite who was distracted with his celebration and just happy to finally be standing! This crowd at the moment….MMYYYYYY LOOORRDDD! This crowd was so excited and then at the drop of a dime….DIED! It’s like they’re at a funeral! They were thrown a bone but then had the rug pulled out from under them! Damn it, even I’M upset! And look at that grin on DEDEDE’s face! He brought his head up from that spear and came up looking like he’s walking on air with how elated he is! He’s eating this up! Chris may have finally….been beaten. Chris went out fighting and that makes DEDEDE even more proud that he systematically stomped the fight out of him and ripped the heart out of these fans! He is basking in the moment, savoring it….before dropping back down and hooking the leg!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Kawajai: It can’t be….
Nick Angel: Wow….INDEED, HOW DID CHRIS ELITE KICK OUT OF THAT? This – this is not human. This is insanity for ME even. Mr. DEDEDE’s face is blank as he looks around at the thousands of fans cheering the decision and the referee who is wagging two fingers in his face and telling him that it was not a three count. Mr. DEDEDE is slowly processing this, taking it all in and is now shaking his head in disbelief. You can see the veins forming on his forehead, his eye is twitching. He lets out an almost ear splitting shout and pulls at his hair! “How is this happening!?” he is questioning! DEDEDE’s world is falling apart it is like, he’s having a mini breakdown just looking at Chri Elite’s body and knowing that this beaten up, bloodied SHELL kicked out from his spear! DEDEDE did not plan, he did not expect for this match to go this long and it’s bruising his ego and really psyching him out!
Kawajai: Foaming at the mouth and shaking in anger, Mr. DEDEDE picks up Chris Elite while shouting out venom laced, expletive filled insults at his opponent. He roughly forces Chris Elite to stand up straight so that he can see his face, AND CHRIS ELITE SOUNDS OFF ON THAT! CHRIS HAS WOKEN UP OUT OF NOWHERE AND DELIVERS A BOX OFFICE SMASH SUPERKICK! THE SMACKING SOUND OF BOOT MEETING JAW CAN BE HEARD AT RINGSIDE! Mr. DEDEDE just got slumped badly and his fight or flight kicks in; he’s choosing to fly away from the danger! He scrambles to get out of the ring and protect himself from a cover, meanwhile Chris Elite falls out dead center in the middle of the ring! That superkick was pure instinct! Pure WILL! How many miracles can Chris Elite create for himself? Just how many more tricks does this mat based magician have up his sleeve!?
Nick Angel: Hopefully one more because if he could just get up he may have Mr. DEDEDE! But with every second Chris lays down and rests, DEDEDE is resetting from that unexpected Box Office Smash. He’s starting to come to mentally and is feeling up that jaw, moving it like he’s seeing if it needs to be realigned with how serious Chris got him!
Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE is more than stirring, he’s nearly fully up and with revenge in mind! The window is about to be shut for Chris Elite being able to capitalize! Hold on! Chris Elite is showing life. He knows in the back of his mind he can’t stay down. Chris kips up! He almost loses balance but falls into the ropes, lucky enough for him, as a crutch. That works out well as he can look down at Mr. DEDEDE. DEDEDE is at first startled by Chris’ sudden appearance and takes a step back, but his face turns sour afterward. DEDEDE grimaces and lets out a loud exhale. He knows something is coming!
Kawajai: …Chris Elite places his hands on those ropes….AND STANDS ON THEM LIKE A TIGHT ROPE! Springboard off the rope — OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!!!! NO WAY!!!!
Nick Angel: CORKSCREW!!!! SHOOTING STAR SPEAR!!!!! CHRIS ELITE CAME DOWN FROM THE HEAVENS AND CRASHED INTO THE EARTH LIKE A METEOR AT HIGH VELOCITY, WITH A CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR SPEAR SHOOTING INTO DEDEDE’S CHEST!!!!!! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME! THE AUDIENCE IS ON THEIR FEET, SCREAMING! That was, that was INCREDIBLE! Never in my LIFE have I seen that, a CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR SPEAR; THIS IS A GAME CHANGER! I am in awe trying to calm myself! Tell me, how did Chris do that, a move with even MORE precision and timing than Mr. DEDEDE’s legendary Shooting Star Spear. The ultimate move in the entire arsenal of wrestling has been topped with something more extravagant!
Kawajai: Chris Elite just out DEDEDE’d…DEDEDE there. It might be telling that that was the step he needed to take. A downright scary, life risking move. Chris Elite almost killed himself completing that and he doesn’t even scare. I guess it’s screw his well being, it’ll all e worth it if he gets that cover! He lifts Mr. DEDEDE up and he throws him back into the ring! Chris Elite slides through after him and then crawls on top of him, not even hooking the legs but resting himself onto DEDEDE for that pinfall; LATERAL PRESS!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
Nick Angel: I just can not be surprised anymore. Mr. DEDEDE, the man that fell victim to a springboard, Corkscrew Spear, kicked out. I am convinced this match won’t ever end. The Gawd can’t be killed and Chris Elite cares too much to let this go! These two may do this forever! I wouldn’t mind it if they stay competing at this level! Something feels like they were DESTINED to go at it! These two lay next to each other, looking up at the lights, eyes nearly closed from the heaviness of their tiredness and all the while the crowd is giving them an ovation. Not a single fan in the building isn’t clapping over what they are witnessing. This match has lived up to the hype, if not exceeded it. Both guys have shown that they deserve a win, but only one can get it. Only one of these two men will get the last laugh after over three months of trash talk, humilation, lying, backstabbing and hatred!
Kawajai: Chris Elite is knackered from that spear, he might have rendered himself immobile! Mr. DEDEDE sits up next to Chris and you can tell his back must be killing him! His stomach too! DEDEDE is feeling a sudden, sharp pain that he clutches at in reaction! Mr. DEDEDE looks like he’s going to vomit. Chris Elite’s falling corkscrew spear had to have hurt something internally. Busted up some ribs, rocked his insides around, who knows. DEDEDE knows something though. He can’t keep going like this! He scoots off as a light bulb is turning on in his head! He faces the ramp and gives off a signal to the stage! I think the spear knocked a few screws loose, the hell is the matter with him motioning to the ramp like a lunatic?
Kawajai: What is he, OH! Now I get it. Big Mike is walking down the ramp and Mr. DEDEDE’s face just lit up like he’s seen his best friend! Big Mike was offered payment by Mr. DEDEDE last week on Voltage to join his side over Chris’ at Road to Redemption and though Big Mike was apprehensive, he was noticeably absent from Chris’ entrance and has been Missing In Action in general. The referee wants Big Mike to stay back but Mr. DEDEDE pulls him to the side and lays down HIS law. DEDEDE is running this match and he’s throwing out the rulebook, the referee is only necessary to count the pin. As Mr. DEDEDE tells the referee how it is, Chris Elite moves on all fours and sticks his head out to talk to Big Mike after spotting him.
(Chris Elite trails off as Big Mike captures his attention when he digs into his jacket pocket. He pulls out a paper in puts it in front of Chris Elite’s face. A five hundred thousand dollar check. Chris looks it over, reading the name of who wrote it and then turning around to the standing Mr. DEDEDE who smirks and nods his head. Chris Elite looks back at Big Mike who remains stern, silently looking away and not keeping eye contact with Chris. Chris can’t help but to let out an amused laugh as he puts two and two together.)
Chris Elite: (w/o mic) SHIT B, RYAN ADAMS DONE SCREWED ME AGAIN!
Nick Angel: Big Mike pulls Chris Elite out from between the ropes by his THROAT and then slings him over his shoulder! No, no, no, it can’t be! Big Mike caved in!? Big Mike has bought into Mr. DEDEDE’s camp! Big Mike carries Chris Elite off and with one hand he swats at our table and cleans everything off of it! Mike then tosses Chris Elite onto that bare table! That’s how he’s gonna do his best friend! He then heads to the time keeper’s area and doesn’t even need to say a word before poor Rebecca Sawyer runs off! Mike takes the chair she was sitting in and throws it into the ring for Mr. DEDEDE to catch! Mr. DEDEDE weighs the chair in his hand, raises it up and then steps onto the apron with it! Mr. DEDEDE is on the same side of the ring that Chris Elite and our announce table is located!
Kawajai: Mr. DEDEDE is mouthing instructions and Big Mike follows them without question. They must have talked this out before! He goes back to Chris Elite on that table and pushes down on his chest and holds down his ankles. He’s keeping Chris Elite held onto that announce table for Mr. DEDEDE to guarantee that Chris won’t roll off and leave him hung out to dry! Mr. DEDEDE sits on that top turnbuckle with the chair tucked underneath his arm! We have seen this countless times before! Mr. DEDEDE has destroyed many with this and there’s no way Chris Elite can avoid it because of that damn Mike! He SEES Chris Elite up there on the top and is just stuck, too weak to get out of Mike’s holding of him! This is it. Done in by his biggest rival and his best friend to twist that knife even deeper! What a messed up end. Mr. DEDEDE chuckles….AND HE JUMPS OFF! WINGSS OOFFFF HEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!
Nick Angel: NOBODY IS HOME!? CHRIS FALLS OUT OF VIEW FOR DEDEDE AT THE LAST SECOND AS HE GOES THROUGH THAT TABLE ON HIS OWN WITH A CHAIR PRESSED TO HIS RIBS! I THOUGHT BIG MIKE HELD CHRIS DOWN, WHAT HAPPENED! WHAT IS BIG MIKE DOING!?
Kawajai: Right before Mr. DEDEDE reached his target, Big Mike pulled Chris off and left Mr. DEDEDE to fall on his own! Big Mike has that paycheck in his hands! He tears it up into dozens of little pieces and throws the shreds on Mr. DEDEDE! He’s not buying in! Big Mike is pointing at Mr. DEDEDE and is telling Chris Elite to get him as he shakes him around to get sense back into “God Given Greatness”! Big Mike played DEDEDE! He went against the plan and Chris Elite might have been on it! He looks at Mike and is dapping him up! They fooled us! Chris even and Mike putting on a convincing act so he’d have Mr. DEDEDE at his mercy in the end!
Kawajai: We talked earlier about how Chris Elite “out DEDEDE’d Mr. DEDEDE”, but really this is a true example of that, scheming his way into an advantage! Mr. DEDEDE imploded that table for an awful fall as he is now left in the wreckage of that backfired plan! Chris Elite pulls him out of that mess, lifting that broken table top off of DEDEDE’s body and then rolls him into the ring as Big Mike coaches him, telling him to hustle! Chris Elite puts DEDEDE back into the ring and then quickly joins him soon after. The two of them are together in that squared circle once again and there is nowhere to run for DEDEDE! Big Mike was his last big plan I bet! Mr. DEDEDE is on the ground, looking defeated! He tries to get up but ends up right back on the canvas! His back has given up! Everything hurts for him as he can’t even move! Chris Elite has to be hurting just as much but he’s gutting it out. He was lucky enough to avoid that Wings of Hell and is now looking at DEDEDE as a sitting duck! The tables have turned from before! Chris is now the one feeling like he is going through a “king me” moment! HE is the one basking in victory! HE is the one savoring everything right now! Chris Elite’s arms are outstretched and his head is held up high! He’s posing, showing off as the fans are celebrating with him! All he’s gotta do is wrap this up! Chris Elite takes his hand, dragging it down over his face to wipe away the blood from that gash on his skull and when it finally goes all of the way down his face he has a complete smile on his face! That hand then turns into a gun! We might be looking at the Who Shot Ya either number two again or the variation known as number three! Chris Elite has DEDEDE in the crosshairs! Mr. DEDEDE, holding his ribs and tasting blood takes a knee! There Chris goes with the takeoff! WHO SHOT YA NUMBER THREE! SINGLE LEGGED DROPKICK!
Nick Angel: DAMN IT, NO, MR. DEDEDE DUCKS IT! He sneaks up behind Chris Elite and scoops him by the leg! A ROLL UP! MR. DEDEDE IS TAKING DESPERATE MEASURES AS HE STAKES CHRIS ELITE UP AND HOOKS THE TIGHTS ALONG WITH IT! THERE’S NO WAY THIS WILL END OFF OF SOMETHING SO CHEAP, CHECK IT OUT REF!
Referee: ONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THRRRRRRR —
Kawajai: Chris Elite forces Mr. DEDEDE up off of him! Mr. DEDEDE nearly fell on his back but avoids it by catching himself! He gathers his bearings yet again and then pushes himself up as Chris Elite gets up at the same time! Chris spots DEDEDE and angry over him trying to pull a fast one with those tights, runs at him! Mr. DEDEDE does the same! AGAIN WITH THE SPEAR! THE SPEAR CONNECTS AND IT LOOKED VERY HEAVY IN DELIVERY! That one wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t sharp, it was a straight up running tackle by a basically dead weighted Mr. DEDEDE! He dragged Chris Elite down more than he knocked him down. Mr. DEDEDE looks frazzled, he hit the move himself and he still doesn’t know if he’s out of the woods yet! He lays on top of Chris, hooking back both legs while demanding the referee hit the scene! That’s about the fifth signature move of DEDEDE’s thrown Chris’ way, I am calling it here as much as I wanna root for this kid. It’s donezo.
Referee: ONNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
Nick Angel: NOOOOOOO!!!!! CHRIS ELITE KICKS OUT! BIG MIKE JUMPED FOR JOY AT THE SIGHT OF HIS BEST FRIEND GETTING THAT KICK OUT! MR. DEDEDE COULD PROBABLY RIP OUT HIS WHOLE HEAD OF HAIR RIGHT NOW! HE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO SOLDIER ON THOUGH, HE HAS NO TIME TO COMPLAIN! THIS MATCH HAS WENT TOO LONG FOR HIM TO BE COMPLACENT! MR. DEDEDE IS STEPPING OUT ONTO THE APRON ONCE AGAIN AND HE IS HEADING TO THE TOP ROPE, STEPPING PAST BIG MIKE ON THE WAY!
Kawajai: That hit Big Mike HARD! Big Mike is shouting at Mr. DEDEDE, he wants to get at him but the referee is gesturing at him and keeping him in his place! Mr. DEDEDE is all the way up on that top rope! People tend to forget how good Mr. DEDEDE is as a high flyer, he’s at home there even after three months of being away from the ring! Mr. DEDEDE is perched up there as Chris Elite is down! Big Mike is being forced to watch as Chris Elite might just finally meet the end of his seemingly nine lives in this match! Mr. DEDEDE smugly looks at the crowd..AND FLIPS THEM OFF! WITH THAT, THERE HE GOES! THE NOOOOORRRRTTTHHHHHH STTTTTAARRRRRRRRRR!!!! NOBODY KICKS OUT OF THAT, WOAAAHHHH!!! CHRIS ELITEEEEEEE!! CHRIS ELITE NARROWLY ESCAPES THAT! MR. DEDEDE HITS NOTHING BUT MAT ON THE WAY DOWN FROM THAT SHOOTING STAR PRESS! CRAP! MR. DEDEDE HOLDS HIS EVEN WORSENED RIBS AND GETS UP FROM THAT GINGERLY — STEPPING INTO THE SIGHT OF CHRIS ELITE WHO IS NOW UP IN WAITING! TIME TO PULL THE TRIGGER! THE BOX OFFICE SMASH SUPERKICK ONCE AGAIN!! RIGHT ON THE BUTTON!
Nick Angel: Chris Elite has had himself at the edge of abyss and at the last second pulled himself away from utter doom! This match has been a rollercoaster with loads of twist and turns and hopefully the ride is reaching its end with what Chris has in store! He’s the one going to the top rope now! Hold your horses dude, is this worth it?
Kawajai: It’s worth it with the admiration he’s getting! You can’t knock the balls this kid has! He’s at the top rope and is standing himself up on the top rope! No wait, no showboating, HE JUST DIVES! ROTATING IN THE AIR AND LANDING ON DEDEDE WITH THE SIX THIRRTTY SEEENNTTTOOONNNN!!! HE FALLS BACK AFTER HITTING IT AND HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
Kawajai:.MR. DEDEDE GOT THE SHOULDER UP! THIS IS MADNESS! THIS IS INHUMANE! THIS HAS TO BE DEMORALIZING TO CHRIS ELITE, NOTHING HE IS DOING IS WORKING! CHRIS IS SHAKING, ANXIETY AND DEJECTION MUST BE TEARING HIM APART AND….HUH? CHRIS ELITE IS LAUGHING! CHRIS ELITE IS DYING LAUGHING FROM THAT KICKOUT? IS HE OFF HIS ROCKER!
Nick Angel: Chris Elite is getting up and is strutting around the ring! He’s crossing his arms and telling everyone it’s over! Chris might be going crazy! That or he has something that might prove to be the true exclamation point to this match! He stands behind Mr. DEDEDE, observing him, watching, waiting! He’s got his hands and out just unable to contain himself! Mr. DEDEDE is on all fours and that’s when Chris Elite sees the sign that tells him to “GO”! He grabs Mr. DEDEDE by the waist….AND DEADLIFTS HIM IN A GERMAN SUPLEX POSITION! UP MR. DEDEDE GOES! BUT CHRIS ISN’T GOING TO CALL IT A QUITS THERE! HE’S TRANSITIONING INTO A ONE WINGED ANGEL! MR. DEDEDE IS BEING BALANCED ON THE BACK OF CHRIS AND IS GETTING SPUN AROUND! CHRIS CONTINUES TO HAVE HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS A HE WALKS AROUND WITH HIS BODY….BATTERING RAM INTO THE CORNER! HEAD FIRST INTO THOSE TURNBUCKLES! MR. DEDEDE’S EYES ARE GLAZED OVER FROM THAT SHOT – BUT IT’S NOT THE ONLY ONE HE’S TAKING! INTO THE OPPOSITE TURNBUCKLE HE GOES! THEN A BATTERING RAM INTO THAT THIRD TURNBUCKLE! MR. DEDEDE IS BEING TAKEN FOR A RIDE…AND HE’S IN FOR ONE LAST STOP! THAT FINAL CORNER! CHRIS ELITE CHARGED MR. DEDEDE INTO THAT CORNER SO HARD THE SIDE OF THE RING SHOOK! THE WHOLE STRUCTURE OF THE RING WAS COMPROMISED WITH HOW HARD CHRIS WAS THROWING DEDEDE INTO THAT TURNBUCKLE! GOODNESS, AFTER THAT MR. DEDEDE LOOKS LIKE HE’S WAVING THAT WHITE FLAG OF SURRENDER! HE’S DONE, HE’S SPENT FROM THAT! NO MORE, NO MORE!
Kawajai: CHRIS ELITE RUNS OFF WITH MR. DEDEDE STILL SET UP FOR THE ONE WINGED ANGEL, HE LITERALLY RUNS TO THE MIDDLE ROPE AND STEPS UP OFF OF IT FOR A BOOST, FLYING INTO THE AIR AND THEN FALLING DOWN! THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT WITH SPRINGBOARD ACTION ADDED ON! CHRIS ELITE WITH THE MOST INNOVATIVE MOVE IN HIS ARSENAL, GIVING IT AN EXTRA TWIST TO MAKE IT EVEN MORE POWERFUL! MR. DEDEDE JUST GOT DROVE INTO THE MAT WITH THAT ONE WINGED ANGEL THANKS TO THE BOOST FROM THOSE ROPES! STRAIGHT ON HIS HEAD DEDEDE GOES AND HIS NECK IS BENT IN WHAT IS SURELY NOT A COMFORTABLE POSITION! HE COLLAPSES OUT OF HIS AWKWARD LANDING AND LAYS ON HIS BACK MOTIONLESS! CHRIS ELITE STANDS UP AFTER THAT AND LOOKS UP AT THE SKY….HE FALLS TO HIS KNEES….AND FALLS FORWARD ON TOP OF MR. DEDEDE WITH HIS JOB NOW COMPLETE! CHRIS ELITE JUST PASSED OUT ON TOP OF MR. DEDEDE, MAKING SURE TO LAND ON HIM TO SECURE HIS VICTORY! THE REFEREE WANTS TO CHECK ON HIS STATUS BUT HE KNOWS THAT PINFALL IS IN PLAY AND SO HE DROPS DOWN TO COUNT IT! CAN THIS BE? IS THIS REALLY ABOUT TO BE IT!?
Referee: ONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Victory 2004” by 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks and Notorious B.I.G. plays for the second time this evening as the crowd breaks out into celebration. Jumping, dancing, cheering, high fiving each other and rapping along with the verse as they show their happiness for Chris Elite who rolls off of Mr. DEDEDE, looks at the referee and covers his mouth in shock, overcome with emotion as his hand is raised to signify his victory.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Here is your winner of Gawd vs God Given Greatness….the now holder of his OWN Gawd Contract…….CHHHHRRIIIIIISSSSS EELLLIITTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
(Clapping can be heard over the headsets of Kawajai and Nick Angel.)
Nick Angel: DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES, KAWA? BECAUSE WE HAVE JUST WITNESSED ONE! CHRIS ELITE, UNDERRATED, JOURNEYMAN CHRIS ELITE, A KID FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, WHO GRINDED AND BUSTED HIS ASS SINCE PAIN FOR PRIDE FREAKIN’ TWO HAS JUST BEATEN THE GREATEST MAN TO EVER LACE UP A PAIR OF BOOTS! CHRIS ELITE JUST DID THIS FOR EVERY PERSON WHO HAS BEEN LOOKED DOWN UPON! THE WORKER, THE UNDERAPPRECIATED, THE LITTLE GUY FINALLY HAS ITS MOMENT IN THE SUN AND IT’S AT THE EXPENSE OF EVERYONE WHO SAID HE COULDN’T DO IT!
Kawajai: I AM FLOORED! CHRIS ELITE ACTUALLY DID IT! HE BEAT OUR CHAIRMAN! FOR SO LONG PEOPLE HAVE LOOKED DOWN ON CHRIS, HE WAS THOUGHT OF AS SOMEONE WHO COULDN’T STICK AROUND IN EAW’S CLIMATE, BUT HERE HE IS, ON TOP OF THE WORLD! CHRIS ELITE HAS ROSE AS A STAR AND NOW IS “1B” WHEN IT COMES TO THE MOST POWERFUL CONTRACTS IN SPORTS! I GOTTA SAY, I’M HAPPY FOR HIM! THIS IS HIS BREAKOUT MOMENT!
Nick Angel: Big Mike has STORMED THE RING and these two are losing their mind! Never would they have thought this could happen! This is something everyone can look back on forever! The night Chris broke the glass ceiling after ten years, the night Chris spit in the face of those who called him hopeless. The night than an ordinary man beat GAWD!
Kawajai: Chris Elite has shown that he is far from ordinary! Chris Elite is a league of his own! Chris Elite walks past the recovering Mr. DEDEDE and DEDEDE is telling him to stop! Mr. DEDEDE approaches Chris…..and DEDEDE extends the hand!
( Chris stands there and watches a still weakened Mr. DEDEDE extend his hand )
Kawajai: And Chris accepts it! The two bitter rivals put their differences and egos aside, and Mr. DEDEDE raises the hand of Chris Elite before collapsing back to a knee and holding a rib! Now Chris relies on Big Mike to help him out of the ring. Chris Elite has earned EVERYBODY’s respect after tonight! An emotional, unforgettable evening for Mr. 200%!
(Chris Elite collects all of the attire he had from his entrance, putting on the crown and the pink mink as Big Mike then puts him on his shoulders, carrying him up the ramp to the stage where his team is waiting to greet him before we fade away from ringside.)
(The camera pans backstage to reveal The Pizza Boy lacing up his boots in the locker room with the EAW Answers World Championship rested beside him. The door is heard to open and shut and once he’s finished putting his boots on, he stands up and grabs the world championship to place on his shoulder, as he finally looks to see who has entered the locker room with him. The reaction on his face tells the whole story as it seems to be one of a pleasant surprise and shock.)
The Pizza Boy: I have to say, I almost didn’t expect you to make it.
(The camera zooms out to where the person can be introduced… revealing The Heart Break Boy to have made his way backstage with a smile on his face as he pats his former protege on the shoulder.)
The Heart Break Boy: Of course, I would be here! How else would I be able to show my support for you in the biggest match of your reign as EAW Answers World Champion? I wouldn’t be a good mentor to you if I didn’t do so!
The Pizza Boy: I appreciate it. It’s almost surreal that tonight I could walk into this match as EAW Answers World Champion and leave as the champion, like I was meant to do last year. It’s like my career has turned a complete full circle from where I was at that time.
The Heart Break Boy: Yes, but don’t forget about those struggles that you had to endure, as it will assist you in this Elimination Chamber Match. You don’t want to have to taste that bitter defeat once again, do you?
The Pizza Boy: Of course not! This is my night, just like it should have been last year! However, I need to be prepared for what could come tonight.
The Heart Break Boy: I know what you mean and let me give you a bit of reassurance, kid. If it happens tonight and something happens to where your night gets ruined, know that I’ll be there to have your back. I doubt that anyone would want to take on the both of us!
The Pizza Boy: Thanks, HBB! Now, I hate to have to leave you like this, but I have to get ready for The Elimination Chamber. We can catch up more when tonight is over? Maybe grab a slice and talk about what has been up with you since Pain for Pride?
The Heart Break Boy: Sounds good to me, just… be careful.
The Pizza Boy: In an Elimination Chamber? Not a chance.
(The Pizza Boy clutches onto the EAW Answers World Championship and shakes hands with The Heart Break Boy to where he walks out of the locker room, as HBB looks behind him with a look of concern on his face, potentially towards the state his friend would be in after the match.)
Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is the final match in the Tag Team Grand Prix Tournament!
( “My Name is Human” by Highly Suspect blares through the arena’s PA system to signify the entrance of Di Consentes. Cameron Ella Ava and Heart Break Gal walk down the ramp in unison with one another, exuding confidence while they make their way to the ring.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first… They are the tag team of Cameron Ella Ava and The Heart Break Gal! DIIII CONSENTEEEEEEEESSSSSSS
Kawajai: Here are the Goddesses! YES! They’ve managed to get under the skin of their normally jovial opponents last week with Cameron picking up the win! This crowd is booing them? Do these two are legends in this business! What nerve these people-
Nick Angel: That’s right Kawajai! These two veterans making their way down to the ring, ready to stack one more accolade to their impressive resumes! They have broken many barriers in their careers, becoming two of the most decorated women in EAW history, but also two of the most decorated wrestlers PERIOD. From upstarts like Ryan Wilson and Trickster, to amazing athletes like Rex McAllister and Chris Elite, Di Consentes has went against all different levels of people to get to here and they don’t plan on falling short at the end.
(“Let’s Dance to Joy Division” by The Wombats hits the PA system as the crowd pops huge for the appearance of Finnegan Wakefield and El Ironico! The pair are out in matching red and black gear with Finnegan sporting a special entrance mask to go along with his partner.)
Rebecca Sawyer: And their opponents! The team of of Finnegan Wakefield and El Ironico………WEEEEEE AAAAARRRREEEE THHHEEEE BOOOOLLLLLOOOCKKKKS!!!!!!!
Nick Angel: And the crowd favorites step out from behind the curtains tonight! Something is different about the two tonight. They aren’t looking quite as…
Kawajai: Drunk? No I don’t think so, they’ve stumbled their way here but showed last Voltage that they mean business. They know enough to show Consentes some respect!
Nick Angel: Finnegan is looking determined. Cameron tried to humiliate him last week in their match, and even though she picked up the victory, We Are The Bollocks made their presence known. It doesn’t look these two are going to be playing around!
Kawajai: Of course not! This is the TAG TEAM GRAND PRIX AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION! They are going to bring everything they have tonight! We Are The Bollocks may get some laughs but they are not a joke team, they got here off the merit of their skills and now is the time for them to show out! This is a match that could create tag team LEGENDS. Pride is on the line, glory is on the line and most importantly a tag team title shot is up for grabs!
(We Are The Bollocks get settled into the ring as they take off their entrance attire, not breaking their gaze from Di Consentes as they do so. The referee picks up on the tension quickly and makes the wise choice to call for the bell and start things off.)
(DING DING DING)
Nick Angel: It looks like El Ironico is starting against HBG. El Ironico is saying something and pointing at her face.
Kawajai: HBG looking back at Cameron, whatever Ironico said must have been disgusting and childish. These two punks are truly beneath Consentes, or at least they’d like to be. Actually, I don’t think Ironico is actually saying anything. I think he’s just mouthing words… strange.
Nick Angel: El Ironico signaling to the crowd and nodding. He points back to HBG and shakes his head. HBG approaching him. Ironico still talking. HBG pushes him to the ground with all her force! Ironico hits the mat hard but kips back to his feet! He hooks her arm! Arm drag! She rolls off her back and hits the ropes! Ironico drops to the mat in anticipation of her approach as she bounds overhead. She realizes what Ironico just did as she continues running to the ropes on the opposite side of the ring. She comes back around to Ironico as Ironico rolls off his hands and throws his legs up on her shoulders! HURRICANRANA!
Kawajai: NO! HBG counters and throws off the legs, flipping Ironico over! Heart Break Gal has him by the hands now –
Nick Angel: Hold on! Ironico is clinging on to her! He hits a second armdrag! She’s rolling off her back. She slides to her feet and goes running at him! Clothesline by HBG! Wait, no! Ironico ducks the shot! She keeps going! She hits the ropes and leaps up catching him in a HURRICANRANA OF HER OWN ATTEMPTED! She delivers it but Ironico answers by landing on his hands and somersaulting to his feet! Amazing!
Kawajai: Even he looks shocked that he landed! These two have an answer for every move so far, and their tag team partners are getting antsy.
Nick Angel: The two circle each other trying to think up a new plan of attack. HBG is making her move! Ironico stops her as he answers with a drop kick! Ironico shoots upon delivery and hits the ropes but Heart Break Gal is already back to her feet! Baseball slide between the legs of Ironico and OH! A HARD KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! Ironico staggers! HBG leaps to her feet and then into the air! IRONICO GETTING SPIKED WITH THE JUMPING DDT! HBG just made herself an opening and she tags in Cam!
Kawajai: The Goddess of Voltage is in and it’s a downward spiral from here! The veterans are going to be taking their turns tearing Ironico apart here tonight.
Nick Angel: The hell is the matter with you tonight? Anywho, Heart Break Gal stays in the ring after tagging in Cameron as the two are making good use of that five count! HBG and Cam link arms and take a couple steps back. Full head of steam! Consentes combine their strikes a double forearm into Ironico and drops him onto his face. HBG and Cam smirk as HBG finally steps out onto the apron to let Cameron handle this on her own! Cameron is digging her boot into Ironico’s spine before stepping behind him! Finnegan Wakefield is yelling out at the pair and encouraging Ironico to get away from their side of the ring! I think he’s doing well in getting Cam’s attention!
Kawajai: Cam leans in and is grabbing Ironico by the horns! She’s looking at Finn with such rage!
Cameron Ella Ava (Without Mic): Fuck you! You skinny-fat piece of shit!
Nick Angel: Cam drives her elbow into the back of Ironico’s head! She picks him up off of the canvas. Ah! She slaps him right in the face! That was more about disrespect than getting in offense! She’s laughing as she goes for a second one but Ironico comes to life! He ducks her swipe at him and then he grabs the back of her head! JAWBREAKER!
Kawajai: OH! Ironico scuttling away after that! Cameron Ella Ava realizes what’s going on scurries after him! She’s got him by the foot! He was inches away from getting to Finnegan Wakefield and getting the tag! That coward! Hits her with a cheap shot and tries to bolt!
Nick Angel: Ironico is flipping on his back as Cameron keeps ahold of his foot! He tries to kick her off but Cam doesn’t let go. She pulls him back! Woah! KNEE DROP! Ironico rolls out of the way! He’s on his feet! He leaps for Finn but Cam catches his arm and pulls him back! Ironico was looking to lunge but got restrained as he is stuck on his knee with Cameron having him in a wristlock! Hmm? Ironico is on his feet! He spins into her! He hooks his arm around! RUSSIAN LEGSWE- NO! Cam twists out of it! She hooks his arm! SNAP SUPLEX!
Kawajai: Cam hops on top of him! Cover – wait! She is bearing down on him with strikes to the head!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! –
Nick Angel: She goes to get off of him, but Ironico rolls her onto her back! He’s throwing lefts and rights like a madman! She kicks him off, right into his turnbuckle! Finnegan tags himself in to the excitement of the crowd! Finn giving a nod to Ironico as I’m not even sure he knows Finn is in yet, he’s stumbling forward! Cam catches Ironico’s head! She pushes him away in frustration!
Cameron Ella Ava (Without Mic): What the fuck?!
Nick Angel: A GRAVE MISKEW BY CAM! FINNEGAN JUMPS INTO THE RING AND SLAMS HER WITH THE INAZUMA LEG LARIAT! Finn keeps moving! She hits the ropes and comes back! KNIGHTS LANCER RIGHT TO THE HEAD! THE PIN!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! TH —
Nick Angel: HBG breaks a pin with a dropkick to Finnegan’s face! She grabs Cam and drags her to the turnbuckle! The referee is admonishing her and telling her to get out! HBG gets to the outside and just tags herself back in! Finnegan with a basement dropkick that sends Cam out of the ring as HBG meets him at the center of the ring, she gives him a hard right hook! He returns with a hook of his own, not even bothering to hold back! She goes for a second one but Finn ducks the punch and HITS A PELE KICK!
Kawajai: HBG goes down! She’s going to –
Nick Angel: Shut the fuck up, Kawajai. She falls forward! Finnegan grabs her arm as he stands himself up! He’s going for the armbar! She rolls off of him! She’s attempting her own armbar! Finnegan twists out of it! He gets to his knees but HBG throws her legs up and wraps them around Finn’s head! She brings it down to the mat, slamming Finnegan’s head against the floor with a mini-rana!
Kawajai: HBG on her feet! She dusts herself off! HAH! Show this kid who’s in charge!
Nick Angel: HBG following up with several hard kicks to Finnegan’s chest. She picks him up, irish whips him into the turnbuckle far from either tag partner. She hops onto the second turnbuckle and is laying into Finn with some hard rights! The referee is asking for a break!
Referee: Come on! One! Two! Three! –
Kawajai: Ironico is getting frustrated watching this. He tries to get into the ring but the ref stops him. HBG is laughing at him and egging him on as the referee restrains Ironico. OH! HBG turns and hits Finnegan with a hard slap! BUT FINN CATCHES HER HAND!
Nick Angel: Finnegan kicks out her knee! She drops down! BUT THERE GOES CAMERON ELLA AVA FROM BEHIND WITH A KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! Cameron decides to intervene while the ref’s back is turned! THEN HBG DUCKS BEHIND HIM AND HITS A NECKBREAKER! Cameron Ella Ava returns to her spot on the apron like nothing happened much to Ironico’s chagrin! HERE IS THE PIN BY HEART BREAK GAL AS THE REF FINALLY RETURNS TO THE ACTION!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THRRR —
Nick Angel: Finnegan Wakefield kicks out! Di Consentes almost stole one there and – Ooohh, watch the apron! Ironico drops out of his corner and is making his way around the outside to Cameron! Ironico grabs Cam’s foot and pulls it!
Cameron Ella Ava (Without a mic): What are you doing you idiot —
Nick Angel: Cameron trips up as she hits her face on the edge of the ring. Ironico hooks her head and delivers a sick DDT on the outside!!! Back in the ring, HBG has Finnegan Wakefield up on his feet. She is holding Finn up by the face, his jaw held at the end of her fingers as she is smiling at him, measuring him for a right! Finnegan mushes HBG in the face before she can do! She strikes him back! Finn starting to gain ground with another strike!
Kawajai: These two are going back and forth! But Finn is getting the upperhand with his advantage in strength!
Nick Angel: Finn with a hard right hook! He grabs her and irish whips her into the ropes! Finn runs at her but she answers with a dropkick! Finn is back to his feet in seconds, HBG responds with another drop kick! Finn gets to his feet again! A third drop kick! HBG looks wiped out! She goes to tag Cam but she’s still not there! Cam is doing her best to dispose of Ironico – running him into the ringpost AND THEN NAILING HIM WITH THE GODDESS’ TOUCH! BUT IN THE RING FINN COMES OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE NOBLE LANCER ON HEART BREAK GAL THIS TIME! HE HAS THE PIN!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE —
Kawajai: CAM BREAKS THE PIN! RIGHT IN THE NICK OF TIME!
Nick Angel: Finnegan gets up onto his feet and thrust kicks Cam back against the turnbuckle! He’s about to give her more punishment but a grounded HBG ROLLS HIM UP!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…..
Nick Angel: FINN TURNS OVER OVER AND COUNTERS WITH A ROLL UP OF HIS OWN!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRR —
Nick Angel: HBG pushes him over and hooks his legs for another roll up! She will not quit!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Nick Angel: FINNEGAN WAKEFIELD TWISTS OUT AND PULLS HBG INTO THE WAKEFIELD SPECIAL I! THIS IS IT! HBG IS SCREAMING IN PAIN! THIS MUST BE THE END!

Ironico (no mic):I BELIEVE I CAN FLY!
Nick Angel: Ironico is now hopping off the turnbuckle… He leaps up and hits a standing splash!
Kawajai: Finn is looking a little frustrated at the move. This is not the time for Ironico to be playing games. Here’s the pin.
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOO —
Nick Angel: Damn it….no. Ironico gets back to his feet quickly and hits the ropes! He comes back and hits THE IRONIC LEG DROP!
Nick Angel: KICK OUT!
Kawajai: Ironico looks really confused and hurt about that kick out. Ironico is arguing with the ref right now.
Nick Angel: HBG uses the ropes to get to her feet! Ironico turns around RIGHT INTO THE TRAMP STAMP! DOWN GOES IRONICO! HBG PULLING THE TRAMP STAMP OUT OF NOWHERE, IRONICO WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT! A HOOK OF THE LEG BY HEART BREAK GAL!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
(DING DING DING)
( “My Name is Human” by Highly Suspect blasts through the PA as Cameron Ella Ava and Heart Break Gal run to each other for a hug, jumping around as they each offer a hand to the referee to raise in victory.)
Rebecca Sawyer: AND YOUR WINNERS OF THE TAG TEAM GRAND PRIX TOURNAMENT! CAMERON ELLA AVA AND THE HEARTBREAK GIRL! DI CONSENTEEEESSSS!!!!!
Kawajai: YES! THE VETERANS TAKE THE TOURNAMENT! What do you mean not like this? These two outsmarted and outwrestled those buffoons in there! Di Consentes! The next Tag Team Champions!!
Nick Angel: They were definitely on their game but if it weren’t for some of those tactics this could have easily been WATB’s night! One hell of a fight from these two! It wouldn’t surprise me if they don’t make their way back to the top soon! But for now! Di Consentes is going for the gold! They have won the tournament, adding another tremendous accolade to their legendary careers! They are tag title bound but the Bollocks have nothing to be ashamed of as their team has only just begun!
(Showdown Presents Its First Supershow of the Season: Kingsroad – coming soon!)
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is an UNSANCTIONED MATCH.
(“The Killing Joke” by Captain Murphy as John Doe enters the stage and makes his slow march down to the ring.)
Announcer: Introducing first, from parts unknown…weighing in at 203 pounds…He is “The Man With no Name”. JOHN DOE!!!
Pierre: And here he comes. The enigmatic John Doe carries himself with a cool swagger. He’s calm. Almost too calm given the gravity of this upcoming confrontation. It feels like something sinister is in the air tonight.
Drake: Right? I know exactly what you mean, Pierre. From where i am sitting the US Bank Stadium has turned into the uncanny valley because something is definitely off about this guy…Lordy is he handsome though.
(“This Means War” by Avenged Sevenfold hits the speakers as a stoic Devan Dubian makes his way down the ramp, with hemostatic tape drawing visible attention to one of his shoulders.)
Announcer: And his opponent, from Leicester, Leicestershire, England…Weighing in at 230 pounds…He is “The Amazing Emir”. DEVAN DUBIAN!!!
Pierre: Well it is easier to put your finger on what is off about Dubian. That hemostatic tape on his shoulder may prove to do more harm than good as it draws a big bullseye right on where he is hurting. He probably shouldn’t been competing at all tonight. In fact, EAW management have washed their hands of this contest. As far as they are concerned , what we are witnessing right now isn’t even happening.
Drake: But it IS happening. And with none of the usual restraints. Nobody is going to stop these two maiming each other. The official is only here to call the pin or *gulp*…the stoppage. You wanna know far Daniels is distancing himself from this? We’re not even being paid for this. I’M NOT EVEN BEING PAID to sit next to a creep like Pierre right now. I am reporting what I see here not as Drake “The Commentator” Jaeger, but as Drake “The Bystander” Jaeger out of a pure sense of duty to you at home.
Pierre: Dubian finally reaches the bottom of the ramp. He pauses, staring down John Doe with intensity before sliding in under the ropes. BUT DOE! DOE WASTES NO TIME IN CLOSING THE DISTANCE TO STOMP DOWN ON DUBIAN JUST AS HE IS ENTERING THE RING!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre: Ruthless aggression on display here by John Doe and he didn’t even wait for the bell. He saw the opening and he put the boot right into Dubian’s injured shoulder without a second thought. Dubian grimaces in pain but fights back up through the assault. Devan lands a solid hook the midsection. And another shunting Doe back. But John retaliates with a sharp kick to the abdomen. He muscles Dubian up against the ropes, bouncing him off for an irish whip which Devan deftly turns into a whip of his own…DOE WITH THE SHOULDER BLOCK ON THE REBOUND! Dubian drops hard, clutching that shoulder as he lands while Doe backs into the ropes again. A SECOND SHOULDER BLOCK KNOCKS DUBIAN OFF HIS FEET JUST AS HE RECOVERS!
Drake: Doe prepares to strike again as Dubian begins to right himself. THIS TIME THE CLOTHESLINE! BUT DUBIAN DUCKS IT! HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES, TAKING DOE DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH THE LOU THESZ PRESS! And now Dubian is enjoying his first bit of offense this fight. He pummels away at John Doe’s face with a wild flurry of punches. He then springs back up to return the favor in full by stomping at the projecting appendages of John Doe. The limbs are pulled inward with urgency and Doe will battle up and away from Dubian. NO! DEVAN’S GOT HIM! DEVAN GET’S A FISTFULL OF DOE’S HAIR AND YANKS HIM DOWN HARD ONTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH THE HAIR-PULLED SLAM! John Doe is shaken. Stumbling up unsteadily…BLEEDING EDGE!!!
Pierre: Doe saw it coming. An astute block and he goes back to punishing Dubian with an overhand landing right across the shoulder blades. Doe next pulls him in, wrenching the wrist and locking all the joints along the arm as he guides his adversary around…AND DUBIAN IS SENT FLYING INTO THE RINGPOST! DOE DRIVES HIM SHOULDER FIRST AGAINST THE STEEL AND THIS IS ALREADY LOOKING LIKE IT IS GOING IN THE WORST POSSIBLE WAY FOR DEVAN DUBIAN! John Doe drags him back out of the corner and continues to hammer down on the shoulder. Dubian drops to his knees in excruciating pain. He leans on the second rope to keep himself from falling completely down. Meanwhile, John Doe stalks over to the opposite side of the ring…HE BLITZES BACK. YAKUZA KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!
Drake: Hold it. Dubian sees it coming and intercepts, using Doe’s momentum against him to him clear to the outside. John lands hard with a thud as Devan steps out onto the apron in pursuit. DOUBLE AXE HANDLE! Dubian sledges the spine of John Doe before dragging him back up and bouncing Doe’s skull off the corner of our announcer’s table. EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Doe is sent reeling across the ringside area and he trips haphazardly over the ring steps. Dubian continues after him, but John cups Devan behind the head AND DIRECTS HIM AT THE RING POST! DUBIAN LIFTS A BOOT AGAINST THE POST TO BLOCK IT. AND INSTEAD IT’S JOHN DOE’S HEAD THAT CLATTERS WITH THE STEEL! A DIZZIED JOHN DOE IS NOW IN FULL RETREAT AROUND THE RING! Dubian turns the corner but Doe hurries under the ropes. Devan follows him into the ring but John is already back outside. The chase continues as Dubian exits the far side of the ring and he sprints around ringside…LARIAT! DEVAN DUBIAN TURNS JOHN DOE INSIDE OUT!!!
Pierre: Some great aggression there from Devan Dubian. He knows that he cannot afford a war of attrition while he still nurses and injury. He knows that his best chance is by finishing this as soon as possible and he has been going in with that intent. But now I think he is ready to take thing upt to the next level.
Drake: What do you even mean?
Pierre: Dubian bends down and lifts the overhanging skirting to look underneath the ring for some toys. He reaches in and pulls out…some kind of power tool? A staple gun? In any case, he tilts his head inquisitively before tossing it into the ring and looking underneath again to this time uncover a Singapore Cane. Dubian strikes his best Last Samurai pose before turning his attention back to John Doe…THWACK! DUBIAN LEAVES A SEARING RED MARK ACROSS THE CHEST OF JOHN DOE! DEVAN RAISES THE CANE ABOVE HIS HEAD A SECOND TIME AS DOE WINCES. HE BRINGS IT DOWN!!!
Drake: DOE STOPS IT! DOE CATCHES DUBIAN BY THE WRISTS AND GUIDES IT ASIDE BEFORE SQUARING A HOOK RIGHT THROUGH DUBIAN’S JAW! DEVAN IS ROCKED AS JOHN PULLS AWAY! DUBIAN SWINGS THE CANE AGAIN BUT ONLY CLAPS THE APRON AS DOE SLIPS CLEAR INTO THE RING! Dubian follows suit only for Doe to catch him again on entry. BUT DUBIAN’S PREPARED! DEVAN DUBIAN PULLS THE LEGS OUT FROM UNDER JOHN DOE AND RISES ABOVE HIM…DUBIAN CONNECTS WITH THE CANE! JOHN DOE TRIED DESPERATELY TO BLOCK IT WITH HIS ARMS BUT THAT IS NO DEFENCE FROM THE PAIN. DUBIAN LASHES HIM AGAIN AND AGAIN , LETTING OUT ALL OF THAT PENT UP FURY IN A WILD A SADISTIC FRENZY!
Pierre: Dubian tosses aside the cane which is now itself broken and bent far beyond it’s original shape. Beneath him, a John Doe who you might just describe in the same manner, hunched on his hands and knees. DUBIAN DRILLS HIM IN THE RIBS WITH A SOCCER PUNT! Shades of that other Leicester sporting legend, Jamie Vardy. John Doe evidently felt that blow. The sense of control he entered this match with has quickly evaporated, but you know this guy still has guts. He is forcing himself back up to a knee. Dragging himself up the frame of an unamused Devan Dubian…DUBIAN CLOCKS HIM IN THE HEAD WITH A VICIOUS STRIKE! But Doe doesn’t budge. He continues to pull upwards. DUBIAN STRIKES AGAIN! BUT THIS TIME DOE REPLIES! DOE FIRES OFF WITH PUNCHES TO THE MIDSECTION GIVING DUBIAN REASON TO BACK OFF.
Drake: That is not all. Doe isolates the injured arm. ARMBREAKER! He snaps the arm down over his own shoulder. It’s a simple manoeuvre but one that’s been known to pop the shoulder out of it’s socket. Doe wisely goes back to target the known weakness as he looks to get back in the match as he continues to work that shoulder joint. John now torques that injured arm behind Devan’s back for the hammerlock. Doe lifts him up…BACK SUPLEX! A modified variation anyway. Dubian’s shoulder “shouldering” the weight of that blow with a concerning crunch. And now John Doe looks to slow this match right down. Keeping it close down to the mat. Continuing to work Devan’s shoulder with great technique and purpose. He attempts to yank both arms back into a kind of surfboard. Dubian is NOT liking this at all, he is shaking his head. BUT HE’S FIGHTING IT! He’s fighting to get his hands back together and get them clasped so he can force a way out of this hold…Nearly…HE’S GOT IT!!!
Pierre: Doe is forced to try something else, but just a she transitions Dubian turns the tables with a snapmare. Dubian assumes the rear waist lock as he powers back up to a vertical base. WHEELBARROW SUPLEX! NO!!! DOE COUNTERS INTO AN ARMDRAG AND BOTH MEN SCRAMBLE UP… BICYCLE KNEE!!! JOHN DOE CONNECTS STOPPING DUBIAN IN HIS TRACKS…BUT DUBIAN! DUBIAN HITS BACK, TAKING JOHN DOE OFF HIS FEET WITH A DISCUS ELBOW!!! Dubian collapses onto his knees, head still spinning but there is no time here to rest. He forces his way back up, determined to keep it going until it is over. Doe likewise is stirring as Dubian moves in…AND HE EATS AN ENZUIGIRI! JOHN DOE CONNECTS WITH A LAST DITCH STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI WHICH LEAVES DUBIAN IN A DAZE. John Doe pulls up behind…RELEASE DRAGON SUPLEX! FORGET THE SHOULDER! HE JUST LANDED ON HIS NECK! HE COULD BE PARALYSED!
Drake: I am not sure about paralysed but i think he really is in trouble. Dubian rolls all the way to the outside. Perhaps to catch a breather. Perhaps out of sheer instinct because he is hurt right now. But it is John “The Impersonator” Doe who is finding his feet, psyched up and bursting with adrenaline in the centre of the ring. Doe peers down at Dubian in front of him. And back at the ropes behind himself. And right back down to Dubian. I think I see a topé coming…JOHN DOE HITS THE BACK ROPES…AND THE FRONT ROPES…JOHN DOE IS REBOUNDING BACK AND FORTH ACROSS THE RING, PICKING UP A SIMPLY INSANE AMOUNT OF SPEED AND…
Drake: HE STOPPED TO PICK UP THE STAPLE GUN!!! HE CLUTCHES IT IN HIS HANDS AND STEPS OUT ONTO THE APRON. DUBIAN LOOKS UP – BANG! HE GETS A STAPLE IN THE HEAD! JOHN DOE BRINGS THE PAIN WITH THE TOPÉ CON STAPLE! A BEAUTIFUL TOPÉ CON STAPLE! IS THERE ANYTHING THAT THIS MAN CANNOT DO!?!?!?
Pierre: Um…Unique…offense there by John Doe. And he follows that up with a much more conservative crossbody to bring Dubian off his feet. But funnily enough, now that he has got him down on the floor, Doe is manhandling Dubian straight back up to a vertical base. He props Devan’s weight against the apron, laying his head carefully next to the right post…Oh God…John Doe looks for a run up…YAKUZA KICK! THE YAKUZA KICK AGAINST THE RINGPOST, HE MUST LITERALLY BE TRYING TO KILL DUBIAN OUT HERE! BLOOD IS JUST POURING DOWN THE FACE OF DEVAN DUBIAN. HE LOOKS COMPLETELY UNRESPONSIVE AND I DARE SAY THAT JOHN DOE MAY HAVE PUT THIS ONE BEYOND DOUBT. Doe rolls Dubian back into the ring AND CLIMBS UP TO THE HIGH RENT DISTRICT!
John Doe (Off Mic): DON’T DISAPPOINT ME, DEVAN!
Drake: John doe is just standing up on the top turnbuckle, howling and goading Devan Dubian to get back to his feet. I guess he has some sort of aerial manoeuvre planned but he probably should have thought this through before kicking Dubian’s head against a steel post.
Pierre: Wait…DRAKE ARE YOU SEEING THIS!?
Drake: What?…WHAT!?!? DUBIAN…DUBIAN’S GETTING BACK UP, I DON’T BELIEVE IT! HE SHOULDN’T BE CONSCIOUS RIGHT NOW! BUT LOOK AT THE WICKED SMILE ON JOHN DOE’S FACE! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTS…STAY DOWN, DEVAN. STAY DOWN…JOHN DOE LEAPS…………BLEEDING EDGE!!! OUT OF NOWHERE! ONE MOMENT HE IS STRUGGLING TO FIND HIS BEARINGS, THE NEXT HE IS PLUCKING JOHN DOE OUT OF THE AIR WITH THE BLEEDING EDGE! IT LOOKS LIKE THE AMAZING EMIR HAS DONE IT ONCE AGAIN. HE HOOKS THE LEG…
Pierre: HE KICKED OUT! WHAT ON EARTH IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO STOP EITHER OF THESE MEN!?!?
Drake: I just have no idea at this point. These two are just so intent on harming each other in the worst possible way and there’s nobody here who can put a stop to this except they themselves. Dubian beats the canvas in frustration but he know he cannot dwell upon it. He wastes precious little time in standing back up and hauling John Doe along with him. DUBIAN CONNECTS WITH A MASSIVE PUNCH IN THE CHEEK! BUT DOE! HE IS JUST LAUGHING! HE’S SMILING FROM EAR TO EAR LIKE A LUNATIC AND LAUGHING RIGHT IN DUBIAN’S FACE. DUBIAN DELIVER ANOTHER BLOW BUT IT FAILS TO SILENCE HIM! DOE HITS BACK WITH A HOOK OF HIS OWN. AND NOW THE TWO OF THEM ARE JUST GOING AT IT LIKE A PAIR OF RAGING BULLS. NO REGARD FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL HEALTH. JUST TRADING BIG SLUGGING BLOWS TO SEE WHO GOES DOWN FIRST…UPPERCUT ON THE BUTTON BY DUBIAN!!! DOE STUMBLES RIGHT BACK INTO THE ROPES, BUT REBOUNDS WITH SPEED, TAKING OUT ONE OF DUBIAN’S LEGS WITH A LOW DROPKICK. AND NOW DOE TURNS ON A DIME! HE HITS ANOTHER SET OF ROPES AND RETURNS WITH A YAKUZA KICK!!!
Pierre: BUT DUBIAN NARROWLY AVOIDS IT! HE GETS BEHIND DOE AND CATCHES HIM WITH THE INVERTED HEADLOCK BACKBREAKER! There’s a bit of hesitation after that move as Dubian appears to have aggravated his own shoulder. But he grits his teeth and fight through the pain. Dubian pulls Doe in, looking for a swinging neckbreaker – BUT IT’S COUNTERED! DOE SPINS IT INTO AN ARM WRINGER, DRIVING DUBIAN SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE CANVAS! Dubian writhes on the mat clutching at his shoulder. No doubt cursing it for jeopardising this contest. But this is what he signed up for. Doe hefts the battered frame of Devan Dubian vertically again and lines him up. AND SENDS DUBIAN CAREENING INTO THE CORNER WITH A FORCEFUL WHIP! DEVAN BOUNCES TO THE GROUND AS HIS SHOULDER COLLIDES HARD WITH THE TURNBUCKLE.
Drake: Doe is really beginning to turn the screw now. Both of these men have dealt and taken a fair bit of damage this match. By I think it is fair to say that the longer this stretches on, the easier it is for John Doe in particular to cause and leverage pain to his advantage. Dubian continues to be ever more hamstrung by his worsening injury. Meanwhile, Doe leaves for ringside. He reaches underneath the ring…and pulls out a couple of steel chairs, tossing them over the ropes before sliding in after them.
Pierre: This is not looking good for Devan. He has still hardly moved as Doe approaches, steal chair in hand and wicked intentions in his eyes…JOHN DOE GIVES HIM ALL OF IT! HE IS SWINGING LIKE THIS IS BASEBALL AND THE COLD STEEL IS LEAVING LARGE RED WELTS AND THE BEGINNINGS OF BRUISES ALL OVER DUBIAN’S BACK. THIS IS GRATUITIOUS! THIS IS SAVAGE! DOE CONTINUES TO SWING AWAY WITH THE CHAIR AS DUBIAN HOWLS IN AGONY BUT THERE IS NO HELP COMING!
Drake: Wait. He’s stopping. Doe whisks the chair away, standing it aside in the centre of the ring. Yet, I doubt that now would be the time to be relieved for anybody who cares about Devan Dubian’s wellbeing. Doe reels Dubian up in front of the chair…AND HOISTS HIM FOR A BRAINBUSTER! BUT DEVAN BLOCKS! DEVAN DUBIAN MIRACULOUSLY FINDS THE ESCAPE BUTTON BY LIFTING THE KNEE TO MEET THE TOP OF DOE’S HEAD. OLYMPIC SLAM!!! THERE’S A BIG MOVE OF DUBIAN’S OWN AND JOHN DOE IS SENT FOR A LOOP!
Pierre: A timely counter and now Dubian is back on the offensive. Doe tries to collect himself but is too unsteady, instead finding a tenacious Devan Dubian corralling him into the corner. Doe now with his back quite literally against the ropes as Dubian begins to find rhythm in putting together some powerful combinations. With Doe failing to protect himself, Dubian sprints out to the opposite corner…AND HE SPRINTS STRAIGHT BACK, SNAPPING DOE’S HEAD BACK WITH ONE HELL OF AN UPPERCUT! John looks just about ready to slump but Dubian gets underneath him and lifts Doe to the top turnbuckle with himself following to the second rope. This is a dangerous position for both men, we’ve certainly seen Dubian go for the superplex here before and that seems to be the ideas now. ONE ARM UNDER HOOKED BY DUBIAN…BUT THE SECOND EVADES HIM! DO UNDERSTANDS THE DANGER HE IS IN AND HE IS STRUGGLING AND SQUIRMING AND PUNCHING AWAY WITH THE FREE HAND TO DESPERATELY FORCE THE BREAK!
Drake: DUBIAN JUST REFUSES TO GIVE IT UP, THOUGH! HE IS TAKING PUNCH AFTER PUNCH DIRECTLY INTO THE LIVER BUT WON’T BACK DOWN! CAN HE REALLY JUST SOAK THESE UP?…NO!!! DUBIAN FLINCHES! JOHN DOE SEIZES THE OPPORTUNITY TO KICK HIM DOWN FROM ON HIGH AND NOW WE HAVE A VERY DIFFERENT PICTURE HERE! DOE STANDS UP ON THE TOP ROPE READY TO POUNCE…BUT WHAT THE HELL!?!? DUBIAN!!! DUBIAN JUST SHOVED THE OFFICIAL INTO THE ROPES SENDING DOE SLIPPING CROTCH FIRST ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Pierre: that wasn’t nice. That wasn’ sportsmanly but it is all fair here. And once again the balance of power switches so fast that this one is nigh on impossible to call with any certainty. Dubian turns away, lifting a chair into his hands…AND THERE IS THE CHAIR SHOT! DEVAN DUBIAN BEGINS REPAYING THE FAVOR AS HE PUNISHES DOE’S SPINE WITH THE STEAL CHAIR THE SAME WAY THAT DOE DID TO HIM! AND THAT IS THE STORY OF THIS MATCH IN A NUTSHELL…TIT FOR TAT…EYE FOR AN EYE…ONE BITTER REPRISAL FOR ANOTHER, BUT JUST WHO WILL BE STANDING WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND DONE!?!?!?
Drake: Judging from what we have seen so far, this means very, very little but it is Devan Dubian who stands firmly in control. While Doe crumbles to the mat, Devan erects the chair again. Perhaps continuing a theme here of giving back to John Doe exactly what the man sought to deal out. Bending over, Dubian raises Doe up, cradling him up in his arms…AND DRIVING HIM BACK DOWN TO HELL! DEVAN DUBIAN LANDS THE SIDEWALK SLAM ON THE STEEL CHAIR AND DAMN NEAR SNAPS JOHN DOE IN HALF IN THE PROCESS. COVER IS MADE!
Pierre: IT’S NOT ENOUGH! Doe pops a shoulder up. Feebly, perhaps. But regardless, the match continues. Dubian has tried just about everything but it just never seems like enough. Just what does it take?
Drake: You’re asking me? I thought that bleeding edge was it, but we have seen a lot of action since then and still have no decisive victor. Back to the ring, Dubian gives a determined rap of the canvas before shooting back to his feet. John Doe remains a crumpled heap on the mat, but Dubian keeps his eyes trained upon Doe as he positions himself in the corner.
Pierre: He looks like he’s lining up to kickoff. Are you thinking what I am thinking?
Drake: I don’t know, Pierre. I’m not a mind reader. But if I had to guess probably not because you are a weir-
Pierre: DUBIAN HITS HIS LAST RESORT!!!
Drake: WAIT! WHAT?!? DOE EVADES IT BY CENTIMETERS! ROLL UP!
Pierre: EARLY KICK OUT AND EACH MAN RACES UP. DROPKICK!!! Doe connects well and Dubian is sent falling through the ro-NO!!! DUBIAN RECOVERS AND COMES FLYING BACK TO LEVEL JOHN DOE WITH THE REBOUND LARIAT! BOTH MEN ARE GROUNDED NOW BUT NEITHER ARE INCAPACITATED AS THEY CONTINUE TO BRAWL AS THEY CRAWL. NOW UP TO A KNEE TOGETHER BUT THE FISTS ARE STILL FLYING. INCH BY INCH THEY RISE BUT ONLY THROUGH A HAIL OF STRIKES BECAUSE NEITHER MAN HERE IS WILLING TO GO DOWN WHILE THE OTHER STILL STANDS!
Drake: DOE’S THE FIRST TO BREAK THE RHYTHM, CATCHING THE WRIST AND SLIPPING BEHIND DUBIAN TO OUT MANEUVER HIM…OWW!!! TECHNICALLY SPEAKING, DOE JUST HIT DUBIAN WITH A SHORT ARM OPEN PALM TO THE CHEEK, BUT I CALL IT HOW IT IS, A BITCH SLAP!!! AND AN UPPERCUT CONNECTS FROM DUBIAN! Heavy retaliation for that disrespect and now Doe really is looking light-headed. Dubian slings him over his shoulders…LOOKING FOR THE FOXES ACE!!! BUT DOE FLIPS OVER ONTO HIS FEET BEHIND HIM! SPINNING HEEL KICK CONNECTS TO THE BACK OF DUBIAN’S HEAD AND HE DROPS DOWN TO HIS HANDS AND KNEES!
Pierre: Dubian bravely postures up to keep going. AND GET A SOCCER KICK ACROSS HIS EXCRUCIATING SHOULDERS FOR TRYING…AND ANOTHER ONE ACROSS THE CHEST JUST FOR GOOD MEASURE! Dubian falls prone as John Doe backs to the far end of the ring, pointing a gun gesture in Dubian’s direction…
John Doe (off mic): Bang
Drake: WHAT IN THE HELL?!?
Pierre: LAST RESORT! LAST RESORT!!! JOHN DOE JUST DROVE THROUGH DEVAN DUBIAN’S HEAD WITH THE LAST RESORT PUNT KICK! DUBIAN FALLS VICTIM TO HIS OWN GREATEST WEAPON!
Drake: WHO IS THIS GUY?!?!? FIRST MY LOOKS AND NOW DEVAN DUBIAN’S LAST RESORT! IS THERE NOTHING SO SACRED THAT THIS MAN WILL NOT STEAL IT!?!?
Pierre: FORGET ABOUT THAT! THIS IS OVER, SOMEBODY GET THE EMT’S IN BECAUSE DEVAN DUBIAN IS SERIOUSLY HURT OUT THERE!
Devan Dubian: *strained grunt*
Drake: DUBIAN!…HE’S…HE’S STILL MOVING!!!
Pierre: DUBIAN IS STILL COGNIZANT, HE’S STILL PULLING HIMSELF UP OFF THE CANVAS…
John Doe (off mic): Bang
Drake: HOLY SON OF GRAPE-KUN AND HIS CARDBOARD WAIFU!!! DOE HIT A SECOND LAST RESORT! DUBIAN JUST HIT THE DECK LIKE A CORPSE…HE’S DEAD, ISN’T HE?!? WE JUST WATCHED A HALL OF FAMER DIE IN THE RING!!!
Pierre: Even the official is in shock, he doesn’t know what to do. After a brief hesitation he pulls himself together. He strides over to the edge of the ring to confer with the timekeeper. This horror show is finally coming to an end.
Drake: PIERRE WAIT!!!
Pierre: What? NO WAY! THAT JUST ISN’T POSSIBLE! DUBIAN JUST GRABBED THE OFFICIAL BY THE ANKLE! HE ISN’T LETTING HIM END THIS MATCH! DEVAN…DEVAN’S GETTING UP! HE’S TAKEN TWO LAST RESORT PUNT KICKS. HE’S COUGHING UP BLOOD. HE CANNOT STAND BY HIS OWN POWER BUT HE IS DRAGGING HIMSELF BY THE ROPES AND PULLING HIMSELF UP IN THE CORNER! DOES ANY OTHER HUMAN HAVE THE FORTITUDE OF DEVAN DUBIAN?!?!?
John Doe (off mic): Bang
Drake: THAT’S IT, STOP SPEAKING PIERRE!!! DOE CAME IN WITH ANOTHER KIND OF BICYCLE PUNT. I THINK HE CALLS IT THE KILLING JOKE AND SURELY THAT IS ALL SHE WROTE NOW!?!? DUBIAN IS OUT OF IT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“The Killing Joke” by Captain Murphy hits as EMTS storm the ring to check on Devan Dubian. John Doe makes his quiet leave.)
Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, your winner by stoppage…JOHN DOE!!!
Pierre: What an absolute WAR. Unsanctioned sounds about right for the carnage whe just witnessed here. Looking at the results, i can tell this is going to be a controversial subject with many people wondering why this was allowed to go ahead at all.
Drake: This would have happened one way or the other anyway, Pierre. Devan Dubian didn’t care about the consequences, he wanted this match and I guess he got it.
Pierre: I suppose you are right. What I will say is that this was an absolute herculean effort on both men’s parts and they have to be praised for their fortitude and spirit if nothing else. Hopefully we’ll be receiving good news about Devan Dubian soon.

( The camera cuts to the ring where the Elimination Chamber descends from above around the ring. The lights dim in the arena as the ring announcer gets into the ring with a mic in hand. )
Ring Announcer: This match is an EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH… AND IT IS FOR THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!! The first four elitists to enter the chamber will be placed into their respective pods, while the last two to enter the chamber will begin the match! After every time interval, a random pod will open and that elitist will join the match! The only ways to win this match are by pinfall or submission! The last man standing will be declared the winner AND YOUR EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!
(“Crippled By Pizza” by Horse the Band echoes throughout the arena when the crowd jumps onto their feet in adulation to where The Pizza Boy walks out with his pizza trolley in his hands. Wearing a blue version of his jacket to where a Brody Sparks logo has been stitched onto the pocket, he pushes the trolley down the ramp before stopping at the Elimination Chamber. He bends down to open the trolley to bring out a pizza box, opening the box to reveal the EAW Answers World Championship to where he holds it high in the air, right before he dives his hand back in where he can retrieve his weapon for the night in his signature pizza cutter.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from New York City, New York… weighing in at 175 pounds… he is THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… “THE PIZZA BOY THAT DELIVERED”… “THE SOMEBODY”… THHHEEEE PIIZZZAAAAA BOOOYYYYY!!!
Stew-O: This is the moment that The Pizza Boy has been awaiting, a true night of redemption that could await him on this night, as this is the night where his entire path towards the championship that he held had all started! A victory inside of the Elimination Chamber Match tonight would prove to be the ultimate catharsis for him in realizing what should have happened to him a year ago!
Jake Mercer: He has proven himself time and time again by making me eat my words against every challenge that has been presented to him. Scott Oasis, Eclipse Diemos, Nasir Moore, the Red Wallz Match, but the greatest challenge awaits him inside of the graven image of disappointment that has haunted him for an entire year!
(“Reminder” by Jay-Z blasts from the speakers to where the crowd istart to be left with a sour taste in their mouths when Scott Diamond walks out to the stage, holding a lead pipe in his right hand before roaring in pride, while a spotlight cascades down upon him. He lowers his arms to reveal and “Thank You Brody Sparks” armband as he stares of the Elimination Chamber with intimidation while marching down the ramp to the match that he must endure in to become world champion.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, he is from Long Island, New York… weighing in at 265 pounds… “THE NOBLE TRUTH”… “BRAVEHEART”… SCCOOOTTTTTTTTT DIIAAAMMMOOONNNNDDDDD!!!
Jake Mercer: The revival of Scott Diamond in EAW has been quite a miraculous turn of events for us here in EAW! Scott was able to be crowned the EAW Hardcore Champion to win his first championship in a number of years, failed to defend it against a man that has become the epitome of Hardcore in Darkane, but was redeemed when he qualified into the Elimination Chamber Match!
Stew-O: Simply being able to compete in a high profile match like the Elimination Chamber for the EAW Answers World Championship, Scott Diamond has already made strides towards being the same man that his Hall of Fame reputation has been founded upon! All I know that inside of that structure, he can be quite dangerous!
(“No Regrets” by Pusha T hits on the sound system to where the reaction of the crowd livens up to where we see Hurricane Hawk sprinting out onto the stage with a massive amount of electricity coursing through him. In his hands, he holds a pair of steel chains wrapped around his hands to where he also dons the “Thank You Brody Sparks” armband on him while walking towards the ring as he takes in the reaction of the crowd.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing their opponent, he is from Jacksonville, Florida… he weighs in at 225 pounds… “THE SHOW OFF”… “THE SHOWSLAYER” HUURRRIIICCCAAANNNNEEEEE HAAWWWKKKKK!!!
Stew-O: The energy that is being emanated from Hurricane Hawk, the absolute adulation from the crowd on his arrival, Hawk walks into one of the best opportunities that have been gifted to him in nearly five years! Hurricane Hawk is walking into a match to where we could see him as potentially our next EAW Answers World Champion!
Jake Mercer: Hurricane Hawk isn’t going to be walking out with anything because he’s the same man that has walked through these doors countless times, Stew! He’s a failure that he’s about to show that fact to the world when we fails to be able to capture the one thing that could redeem him from years of ineptitude!
(“Bad Guy” by Eminem echoes throughout The US Bank Stadium with the crowd met with disapproval upon the arrival of Sebastian Monroe at the stage, with Scott Oasis marching out onto the stage with a blue-variant to his trenchcoat, holding a wooden club in his hand as he looks across the sea of people. He bounces around the stage, exploding out onto the ramp with fireworks blasting all over the stage, before he walks down the ramp towards the Elimination Chamber.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from Baltimore, Maryland… weighing in at 260 pounds… he is accompanied to the ring by Sebastian Monroe… “THE COLD-BLOODED KILLER”… “DYNASTY’S GREATEST SON”… “THE ICE MAN”… SCOOOTTTTTTTTT OAASSSIIIISSSSS!!!
Stew-O: The Ice Man has made his arrival here in Minneapolis on his path of destruction to reclaim what has been called his “frozen throne” in the EAW Answers World Championship! To be crowned in this position, he will have to endure one of the most punishing and sadistic matches of all time in the Elimination Chamber Match!
Jake Mercer: A match that he has PLENTY of experience in, Stew! This is by far the first Elimination Chamber Match that he has been placed in and that experience that he has been a part of, that will take him far in this match and towards the championship trophy that he seeks! Sebastian Monroe, however, will be forced to remain backstage during this match per the orders of StarrStan behind the scenes.
(“I Am Electric” by Heaven’s Basement hits on the speakers with blue and white spotlights circling around the stage to where we see Nasir Moore skip out onto the stage with a smile on his face, wearing a blue “Thank You Brody Sparks” shirt along with his signature jacket. The crowd is on their feet to celebrate his arrival into the match as he just shines that winning smile of his, making his way towards The Elimination Chamber while carrying a pair of kendo shinais with him to potentially use as weapons in this match!)
Ring Announcer: Entering the match at number one, he is from Newark, New Jersey… weighing in at 212 pounds… “THE SAGE OF LIGHT”… “THE CHILD OF PROPHECY”… “THE MAN OF MIRACLES” NAASSSIIIIRRRRR MOOOOORRRREEEEE!!!
Stew-O: Nasir Moore enters first in this Elimination Chamber Match for the EAW Answers World Championship and as one of the perennial underdogs of this brand, this is a scenario that he has known too well! The odds being placed against him on his path towards achieving the dream of being known as the EAW Answers World Champion, this is where a man like Nasir can thrive!
Jake Mercer: Nasir Moore might be entering at the first entry, but we’ve seen so much improvement and advancement in the career of Nasir, that this could be his night! Just think about all the mountains that he has climbed over these past few months! He beat his best friend at Pain for Pride X, an idol in CM Bank$ in singles competition, won a Divide and Conquer Match and finally, he’s been inches away from being crowned champion! All in all, this could be the night we see him finally win the big one!
(“Black Gives Way To Blue” by Alice in Chains creeps through the sound system with a montage of moments from the times of Jacob Senn and Brody Sparks on the titantron. The moment when they first met, the moments where they were EAW World Heavyweight Champion and EAW Specialists Champion together, their first on-screen appearance during Jacob’s feud with The Heart Break Boy, the moments shared between them throughout before her untimely passing.)
“I don’t wanna feel no more… “
“It’s easier to keep falling… “
“Imitations are pale… “
“Emptiness all tomorrows, haunted by your ghost… “
“Lay down, black gives way to blue… “
“Lay down, I’ll remember you… “
(The song finally fades out on a final picture between the two lovers as finally a “Thank You Brody Sparks” tribute banner was shown at the end of it.)
(“S.O.A.R.” by Devour The Day blasts from the speakers when the music finally picks up to where Jacob Senn marches out with a solemn look on his face, wearing a Punisher themed attire inspired from Brody Sparks to where he starts to hunch over, as a barbed-wire steel chair is in his hand. Jacob Senn throws his hood off of his face, visibly quelling tears back within his face at the moment, leaning up and kissing the solitary finger before firing a gun point to the air before walking down the ramp with his focus on those in the ring. As he walks down the ramp, a “Thank You Brody Sparks” logo is stitched onto the back of his leather jacket before he reaches the bottom of the ramp, holding his leather gloves up to show the Brody Sparks logo made on them.)
Ring Announcer: Entering this match at number two, he is from Chicago, Illinois… weighing in at 218 pounds… “THE PUNISHER”… JAACCCOOOOBBBBB SEENNNNNNNN!!!
Stew-O: This season has turned into what can only be described as the worst season start in his entire career! Not only did he fail to defeat one of the biggest names in this business at Pain for Pride X, not only was he struggling with one of the longest losing streaks of the season, but he had lost someone that was a tremendous person to him! To be honest with you, Jacob Senn has lost everything in his life except the obsession that drives him in this moment.
Jake Mercer: I can’t comprehend the pain and anguish that must be going through not only this man’s mind and body, but his heart at this moment. What this man has been going through, it would shatter most men under the weight of the loss, but he’s devoted to one thing in this world. One thing drives him through all of this and that one thing will be what he intends to get in his vengeance against Mr. DEDEDE! Hopefully for his sake, this match will be the key to realizing and ending his obsessed desires!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: The bell has rung and the moment that ALL of Dynasty has been waiting for is about to begin with Jacob Senn and Nasir Moore set to start this match between one another! Jacob with this solemn look on his face still after that emotion introduction into this contest as we walks up towards Nasir, but with a bit of anger set towards him! I don’t believe Jacob has forgotten about the Divide and Conquer Match where Nasir cost him an opportunity at the EAW Answers World Championship, but Nasir isn’t backing down! He’s standing his ground and sharing in the screaming match between these two BEFORE FINALLY NASIR HAS HAD ENOUGH AND SMACKS HIM ACROSS THE FACE WITH ONE OF THOSE KENDO SHINAIS! A BAMBOO SWORD SMACKED RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE OF JACOB ALMOST LIKE A STIFF SLAP OF DISRESPECT SENT TOWARDS HIM!
Jake Mercer: Matches like these are where the emotions will run at an all-time high and Nasir Moore is showing just that with that shot from the weapon he has chosen to bring into this contest BUT JACOB SENN POPS UP WITH A FURY STRAIGHT FROM THE PITS OF HELL GLARED RIGHT TOWARDS HIM! JACOB LUNGES STRAIGHT FOR HIM WHILE SWINGING WILDLY WITH THE BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR TOWARDS NASIR’S FACE! NASIR AVOIDS IT AND SMACKS JACOB RIGHT IN THE BACK WITH ANOTHER SHOT FROM HIS KENDO SHINAI! THE SHOT FROM THAT BAMBOO SWORD CAUSES JACOB TO DROP HIS BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR FROM HIS HANDS FOR NASIR TAKES THE OPENING TO START SWARMING JACOB WITH SHOTS! The crackling from these shots can be heard around the entire US Bank Stadium AS YOU CAN SEE WELTS START TO FORM ACROSS THE BACK AND ARMS OF JACOB! Jacob has been forced down to a knee as we see Nasir use the kendo shinai to place under his chin FORCING HIM TO STAND BACK ON HIS FEET TO ENDURE THE PUNISHMENT HE HAS FOR HIM!
Stew-O: ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW! JACOB SENN RUSHED BACK TO HIS FEET TO NOT BE HUMILIATED IN SUCH A MANNER AND STRUCK WITH A DEVASTATING ELBOW TO NASIR MOORE! This forces Nasir himself to drop the kendo shinais TO WHERE JACOB STARTS TO LAND RAPID-FIRE STRIKES INTO HIM PRIOR TO A SHOOT KICK RIGHT INTO HIS STOMACH! Nasir is on the ropes on the moment and could be in a serious amount of trouble BUT JACOB CONTINUES AS HE SPINS FOR THE SPINNING BACKFIST RIGHT INTO HIS JAW! WHAT A SHOT! NASIR COULD HAVE BEEN KNOCKED OUT WITH SUCH A BLOW RIGHT THERE WHEN JACOB FINALLY ROLLS BACK TOWARDS HIS OPPONENT TO TAKE HIM OFF OF HIS FEET WITH A DISCUS LARIAT! SECOND CITY COMBINATION!
Jake Mercer: NASIR MOORE DROPS DOWN TO DUCK UNDER THE LARIAT WITH JACOB SENN MISSING WILDLY THERE WHEN NASIR CATCHES HIM IN TO SPIN HIM AROUND IN THE AIR! COULD WE SEE AN EARLY PULSE BOMB RIGHT HERE BEFORE OUR VERY EYES FOR THE FIRST ELIMINATION OF THE NIGHT? LOOK AT THAT! THE VETERAN EXPERIENCE THAT JACOB SENN HAS PLAYS INTO THIS MATCH AS HE FLIPS OUT OF THE PULSE BOMB BEFORE ANYTHING COULD COME OF IT! Jacob hooks Nasir by the waist as he sprints into the ropes LOOKING TO DO A REBOUND O’CONNOR ROLL TO PUT THIS MAN AWAY FOR THE EARLY PIN RIGHT HERE! NO! NASIR CATCHES HIMSELF ON THE TOP ROPE WHILE JACOB ROLLS BEHIND HIM WITH NO ONE IN HIS POSSESSION! However, Jacob is able to recover quickly from this by immediately standing on his feet SPRINTING IN FOR THE LARIAT OVER THE TOP ROPE ONTO THE STEEL GRATE FLOOR!
Stew-O: NASIR MOORE BENDS DOWN AND LIFTS JACOB SENN UP IN THE AIR TO THROW HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE STEEL GRATE FLOOR HIMSELF! NOT SO FAST! JACOB SENN LANDS ON HIS FEET TO WHERE HIS BODY IS ABLE TO AVOID THE SUFFERING THAT THE STEEL WILL GIVE HIM AS NASIR PACES TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING! Jacob notices an opportunity already in this match as he walks towards the ropes and grabs the top rope EYING NASIR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING BEFORE HE LEAPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE! SPRINGBOARD HIGH KNEE STRIKE! DROPKICK! JACOB SENN EATS A DROPKICK FROM NASIR MOORE TO WHERE HE SHOOTS UP TO HIS FEET AND STARTS TO FEEL THE ENERGY OF THE CROWD WITH THE OVATION THAT THEY GIVE HIM FOR THAT! Nasir watches Jacob fight his way back to his to where he rushes forward LEAPING ON SENN FOR THE SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB RIGHT DEAD CENTER IN THE RING! NASIR HOLDS HIS SHOULDERS DOWN ONTO THE MAT FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Jake Mercer: JACOB SENN ALMOST IMMEDIATELY TOSSES HIS SHOULDER OFF OF THE CANVAS AS HE HAS PREPARED TO GO THE DISTANCE IN THIS MATCH! If something like this was to put him away in this match, there would be no way he could show his face in a Dynasty locker room again! Nasir Moore lifts himself back to his feet with ease as his opponent is able to the same thing WHEN NASIR DRIVES A STIFF ELBOW STRAIGHT INTO HIS FACE! Jacob stumbles back a tad BEFORE FIRING WITH HIS OWN ELBOW SHOT INTO NASIR! NASIR WITH ANOTHER SHOT! JACOB WITH ONE OF HIS OWN! NASIR! JACOB! NASIR! JACOB! NASIR! NASIR! HE’S JUST FIRING WITH RIGHTS STRAIGHT INTO HIM BEFORE CHUNKING HIM CLEAR ACROSS THE RING INTO THE ROPES! Jacob rebounds off the ropes and returns RIGHT INTO A LEG LARIAT FROM THE MAN OF MIRACLES! THIS COULD BE AN AMAZING MIRACLE IN THE MIND OF NASIR MOORE AS HE PERKS RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET TO PACE BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! He starts signalling to the crowd and screaming for Jacob to get his feet LOOKING TO PUT HIM AWAY WITH THE RASENGAN PU–
Stew-O: HOLD UP, LOOK AT THE TITANTRON! THE CLOCK IS STARTING TO COUNTDOWN FOR THE NEXT ENTRANT INTO THE MATCH! Nasir Moore can hear the crowd counting down as he looks all around the ring while Jacob Senn pushes on the canvas to pick himself up WITH THE CLOCK TICKING DOWN!
10… 9… 8… 7…. 6…. 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… BUUUZZZZZ!!!
(The spotlight for the pods start to flicker randomly around the pods before it finally stops… AT THE PIZZA BOY!)
Stew-O: THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION HAS BEEN CALLED UPON TO ENTER INTO THE MATCH! The Pizza Boy’s pod opens up for him as he rushes out to join the fight between these men for the right to be called the champion in what has to be his biggest defense as the champion! He walks to the ropes and catches the attention of Nasir Moore standing in the ring where Pizza Boy simply shrugs RIGHT BEFORE RUSHING INTO THE RING TO MEET HIS CHALLENGER! NASIR THROWS A LARIAT BUT PIZZA BOY INSTANTLY DUCKS UNDER IT AND BOUNCES INTO THE ROPES TO GAIN SOME MOMENTUM BEHIND HIM! Nasir turns around ONLY TO BE MET WITH A PIZZA CUTTER SMASHED INTO HIS FACE IN THE FASHION OF A FLYING ELBOW SMASH! NASIR CLUTCHES ONTO HIS FACE WHILE HE ROLLS OUTSIDE OF THE RING WHILE THE PIZZA BOY STANDS ON HIS FEET AND SPINS HIS PIZZA CUTTER AROUND IN HIS HAND!
Jake Mercer: The pizza cutter of our EAW Answer World Champion is quite the violent weapon in this match and as much as a saint that he is loved to be painted as, he might as well be one of violence in these scenarios, because the darkest demons of The Pizza Boy will be revealed in this match! Jacob Senn starts to push himself up onto his knees when he gains the attention of the champion to where he walks towards him STRIKING HIM IN THE FACE WITH A RIGHT HAND BEFORE GRABBING HIS HEAD! What’s he– THE PIZZA BOY IS SLICING JACOB ON HIS FOREHEAD WITH THE PIZZA CUTTER! JACOB QUICKLY GETS OUT OF HIS HANDS AND ROLLS AWAY FROM HIM, BUT NOT WITHOUT WRITHING IN PAIN FROM THAT PIZZA CUTTER! The Pizza Boy smirks at the display that he has made to where he turns around to see Nasir Moore crawling up to his feet to where the champion drops his pizza cutter willingly while looking to meet this challenger of his on the steel grate floor! Nasir stands up to his feet BUT NOT BEFORE THE PIZZA BOY SHOVES HIS HEAD RIGHT INTO THE CHAIN WALL OF THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER! BRUTAL!
Stew-O: This side of The Pizza Boy is rarely seen to where it almost changes who he is, but he knows what he must do in this match to be victorious once more, and it’s not being a man of honor and virtue like we know him to be! Nasir Moore’s head continues to bounce off of the Elimination Chamber wall before he finally allows him to collapse down to the floor BUT JACOB SENN COMES IN FROM BEHIND TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF AN OPPORTUNITY STARING HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE! BACK ELBOW STRIKE! THE PIZZA BOY COUNTERS HIS OPPONENT AND GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD TO TOSS HIM STRAIGHT BACK INTO THE RING! How on Earth did Jacob Senn find the wherewithal to come right back into the fight after dealing with that pizza cutter from Pizza Boy?
Jake Mercer: Jacob Senn stumbles in the ring to get back to his feet THROWING AN ELBOW STRIKE RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF PIZZA BOY TO ATTEMPT FIGHT BACK! PIZZA BOY DUCKS UNDER THE SHOT AND SMACKS HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE BEFORE HOOKING HIM IN BY THE NECK! HE COULD BE GOING FOR A BRAINBUSTER RIGHT HERE! NO! JACOB SLIDES OUT OF THE BRAINBUSTER AND ROLLS OUTSIDE OF THE RING TOWARDS THE STEEL GRATE AREA WHERE HE CAN THRIVE, BUT PIZZA BOY QUICKLY FOLLOWS BEHIND HIM TO NOT GIVE HIM MUCH BREATHING ROOM! The Pizza Boy enters the outside to join Jacob MET WITH A HARD KICK TO THE STOMACH FROM THE PUNISHER ON THE OUTSIDE! Jacob’s begun to fight his way back into this match as he starts laying into Pizza Boy with his strikes RIGHT BEFORE TOSSING HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE CHAIN WALL OF THIS STRUCTURE! The Pizza Boy lands SMACK ONTO THE WALL BY HIS FACE AND TURNS AROUND INTO THE GRASP OF JACOB SENN! JACOB HOOKS PIZZA BOY BY THE NECK AS HE STARTS TO HOIST HIM UP IN THE AIR FOR HIS OWN BRAINBUSTER ON THE STEEL GRATE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
Stew-O: STRIKE THAT! THE PIZZA BOY DROPS RIGHT BACK DOWN TO HIS FEET AND STARTS LANDING ELBOWS INTO THE STOMACH OF JACOB SENN BEFORE HE SWITCHES CONTROL OF THE NECK TO WHERE HE HAS HIM HOOKED IN! BRAINBUSTER! PIZZA BOY JUST SPIKES JACOB RIGHT ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD WITH THE BRAINBUSTER ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE STEEL GRATE! This doesn’t go without a cost to his own body as Pizza Boy arches his back in agony from the landing before he looks to get back to his feet BUT SUDDENLY SEES THAT NASIR MOORE IS CLIMBING HIS WAY ONTO THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE TO TRY AND DIVE HIS WAY IN! PIZZA BOY RUSHES IN AND JOINS HIM AT THE TOP WHERE HE STRIKES WITH A FLURRY OF ELBOW STRIKES BEFORE HE FINALLY DROPS TO THE STEEL GRATE FLOOR WITH A STIFF HEADBUTT FROM PIZZA BOY! The Pizza Boy climbs on the top of the turnbuckle and looks down at Nasir Moore while he writhes around in pain from landing on that steel grate, but he looks up onto the pod that’s beside him, DOING SOMETHING INSANE AS HE STARTS TO MAKE THE CLIMB ON TOP OF THE CHAMBER POD!
Jake Mercer: THE PIZZA BOY IS GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND TO SECURE HIS EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP INSIDE OF THIS MATCH AND HE’S TAKING THIS MATCH ALREADY TO A WHOLE DIFFERENT LEVEL! The Pizza Boy has climbed his way on top of the chamber pod to where he looks down to see Nasir Moore fighting his way up to his feet ONLY FOR HIM TO TAKE THE LEAP OF FAITH FROM THE POD FOR A DIVING MISSILE DROPKICK! HE NAILS IT AS BOTH HIM AND NASIR LAND ON THAT STEEL GRATE FLOORING AS YOU SEE BOTH MEN WRITHING AROUND IN AGONY FROM THAT BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK! The Pizza Boy rolls over onto Nasir Moore DRAPING HIS ARM OVER THE CHEST OF NASIR FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!
Stew-O: NASIR MOORE THROWS HIS SHOULDER STRAIGHT OFF OF THE GRATE FLOOR TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN! The Pizza Boy starts to show signs of frustration as he picks himself up off of the floor AS THE TIMER TICKS DOWN FOR THE NEXT ENTRY INTO THE MATCH!
10… 9… 8… 7… 6… 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… BUUUZZZZZ!!!
(The spotlight for the pods start to flicker randomly around the pods before it finally stops… AT SCOTT OASIS!)
Jake Mercer: THE FUN IS ABOUT TO BEGIN BECAUSE THE ICE MAN HIMSELF HAS BEEN INTRODUCED INTO THE MIX! SCOTT OASIS INSTANTLY SPRINTS OUT OF HIS POD WITH HIS WOODEN CLUB IN HIS HAND AT THE READY TO BE USED, AS HE MAKES HIS WAY OVER TOWARDS A RISING PIZZA BOY! The Pizza Boy stands on his feet and turns out CRACKED RIGHT ON THE TOP OF HIS SKULL WITH THE CLUB BEFORE HE CHUNKS HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE RING! Scott goes through the middle rope as Pizza Boy attempts to stand on his feet MET WITH ANOTHER STIFF SHOT FROM THE CLUB STRAIGHT INTO HIS SPINE! This is straight punishment from Scott Oasis here for the humiliation he endured in the last time these two met in the ring and let me tell you, Oasis is not a man that is known for his forgiveness! SCOTT IS JUST BLUDGEONING PIZZA BOY WITH THAT CLUB ON HIS SPINE, BUT WE SUDDENLY SEE NASIR MOORE RUSH INTO THE RING FOR A LARIAT ON THE COLD-BLOODED KILLER!
Stew-O: NO ONE’S HOME! SCOTT OASIS DUCKED THE LARIAT AND ALLOWS NASIR MOORE TO KEEP UP HIS MOMENTUM TO BE SENT STRAIGHT INTO THE ROPES! Nasir rebounds off the ropes RIGHT INTO A HEAVY SHOT ACROSS THE NECK FROM SCOTT BY THAT CLUB OF HIS THAT HE’S BEEN USING AT HIS DISPOSAL! Scott Oasis starts to brutalize his opponent once again, this time onto Nasir Moore, demolishing his spine with the club! HARD STIFF SHOTS BEING DROPPED INTO HIM AT THIS MOMENT BEFORE HE FINALLY RELENTS WHEN HE NOTICES NOT A SINGLE MOVEMENT BEING MADE FROM NASIR ONCE HE HAD BEEN FELLED! Scott finally turns his attention over to see Jacob Senn entering back into the ring, showcasing a little trickle of blood on his forehead from the pizza cutter incident with Pizza Boy that the brainbuster had opened up, with Scott rushing in LOOKING TO TAKE ANOTHER PERSON OUT WITH THE CLUB!
Jake Mercer: NOT THIS TIME! JACOB SENN DUCKS DOWN AND LATCHES ONTO THE TOP ROPE TO CAUSE SCOTT OASIS TO TUMBLE ONTO THE STEEL GRATE FLOOR ON THE OUTSIDE! SCOTT JUST ROLLS UP ONTO HIS FEET LIKE THAT DIDN’T EVEN FAZE HIM, BUT JACOB STANDS ON HIS FEET WITH THE TOP ROPE IN HIS HAND! HE LEAPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND LAUNCHES HIMSELF TOWARDS SCOTT FOR THE SPRINGBOARD HIGH KNEE STRIKE ATTEMPT ONCE AGAIN! NO! SCOTT CATCHES HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS AND YOU CAN SEE ON THE FACE OF JACOB THAT HE KNOWS HE’S IN A WORLD OF TROUBLE! POWERBOMB ONTO THE STEEL GRATE FLOOR FROM SCOTT OASIS! Jacob is all too familiar with the strength that his behind those powerbombs, but you add the steel flooring into the mix, and it’s definitely a violent combination! Scott isn’t finished yet AS HE THROWS JACOB RIGHT BACK ON HIS SHOULDERS BEFORE POINTING HIM TOWARDS THE CHAIN WALL! HE FLINGS JACOB INTO THE CHAIN WALL WITH A POWERBOMB AS HE CRUMBLES DOWN ONTO THE FLOOR! SCOTT ROLLS JACOB ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AND HOOKS HIS LEG IN FOR THE PIN!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!
Stew-O: SHOULDER UP! JACOB SENN HAS JUST SAVED HIMSELF FROM ELIMINATION RIGHT HERE TO WHERE SCOTT OASIS IS JUST BESIDE HIMSELF WHILE HE STANDS UP ON HIS FEET! Scott stands on his feet and stomps onto the stomach of Jacob before dragging him up to his feet HOOKING HIM BETWEEN HIS LEGS TO DROP HIM ON HIS HEAD FOR THE PILEDRIVER! HOLD ON A SECOND! JACOB SLIDES THROUGH HIS LEGS AND SHOVES HIM FOR BEHIND RIGHT INTO THE CHAIN LINK WALL! SCOTT’S HEAD BOUNCES OFF THE WALL WHILE JACOB CAN BARELY EVEN STAND AT THIS MOMENT FROM THE PUNISHMENT HE HAS ENDURED ALREADY! Scott trails back off the chain wall WHEN JACOB LEAPS IN THE AIR BEHIND HIM FOR THE REVERSE HURRICANRANA! JACOB DUMPS SCOTT ON HIS HEAD INTO THE STEEL GRATE FLOOR WITH THAT MANEUVER AND STANDS RIGHT BACK ONTO HIS FEET!
Jake Mercer: YES, BUT LOOK AT THIS! NASIR MOORE SHOOTS IN FROM BEHIND AND STARTS FIRING SHOTS INTO JACOB SENN! Strikes left and right into him before Jacob Senn starts teetering towards the chain wall, looking up towards the ceiling as he tries to fend for himself, FIRING BACK WITH A STIFF SHOOT KICK INTO HIS CHEST! Nasir stumbles back to give Jacob enough of a opening to start making his climb onto the chain wall to escape him BUT NASIR QUICKLY STARTS TO MAKE HIS WAY ONTO THE CHAIN WALL BEHIND HIM! Both men start to make their climb up to the chain wall BEFORE A BRAWL BETWEEN THEM STARTS TO GO DOWN! PUNCHES SHARED BETWEEN THE BOTH OF THEM BEFORE WE FINALLY SEE NASIR START TO GAIN THE ADVANTAGE! NO! JACOB SMASHES NASIR’S HEAD INTO THE CHAIN WALL REPEATEDLY UNTIL NASIR FINALLY COLLAPSES OFF OF THE WALL! NASIR LANDS ON THE GRATE FLOOR HARD WHEN JACOB TURNS HIS ATTENTION OVER TOWARDS THE POD TO WHERE HE CAN GET HIS FOOTING! Jacob makes his onto the pod before he turns TO FIND PIZZA BOY UP THERE WITH HIM WHO BASHES HIS HEAD RIGHT INTO THE CHAIN WALL BEHIND THEM!
Stew-O: THE PIZZA BOY MUST HAVE NOTICED WHAT WAS HAPPENING AND CLIMBED UP THERE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WHOEVER WAS THE ONE LEFT STANDING! The Pizza Boy just continues to bash his head into the chain wall until he is the one standing above him ONLY SCOTT OASIS HAS MADE HIS WAY BACK INTO THE RING AND ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE WHERE HE DRAGS PIZZA BOY DOWN TO THE TO THE TURNBUCKLE WITH HIM LIKE A DEMON OUT OF HELL! Pizza Boy does what he can to cling onto the pod, but the strength of Scott Oasis is too much for him to handle AS HE NAILS WITH HIM A HEADBUTT TO SEND HIM FALLING DOWN ONTO THE FLOOR! This gives Scott Oasis just what he wants in being able to pound Pizza Boy’s face in without anyone getting involved BUT SCOTT EATS A BOOT FROM JACOB FROM THE TOP OF THE CHAMBER! THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THIS MATCH JUST SHOWS THE CHAOS THAT IT CAN ENSUE WITH ENEMIES AT EVERY TURN! Jacob starts to climb down to meet Scott on the turnbuckle BUT SCOTT NAILS HIM WITH A RIGHT HAND BEFORE SPINNING HIM AROUND TO HOOK HIM IN FOR A SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! LOOK BELOW! THE PIZZA BOY HOOKS UNDER SCOTT OASIS FOR WHAT COULD BE A POWERBOMB! IT’S… IT’S… A TOWER OF DOOM! A CAR CRASH HAS JUST WENT DOWN TO WHERE WE SEE JACOB FLUNG IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX WHILE SCOTT IS DROPPED NEAR THE CORNER WITH A POWERBOMB FROM PIZZA BOY!
Jake Mercer: BODIES HAVE BEEN SPLAYED ALL ACROSS THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER, BUT NOW WE LOOK TO THE CLOCK ON THE TITANTRON, WHO WILL ADD ANOTHER SOUL TO FIGHT INSIDE OF THIS HOUSE OF PAIN!
10… 9… 8… 7… 6… 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… BUUUZZZZZ!!!
(The spotlight for the pods start to flicker randomly around the pods before it finally stops… AT SCOTT DIAMOND!)
Stew-O: THE FIFTH ENTRANT INTO THE MATCH IS NONE OTHER THAN SCOTT DIAMOND AND WITH THAT LEAD PIPE OF HIS IN HAND, WITH HIS FOCUS PLACED ENTIRELY ON THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION THAT HAS BEEN THE MAN LEFT STANDING! Scott sprints in LOOKING TO BASH THAT LEAD PIPE OF HIS RIGHT INTO THE STOMACH OF THE CHAMPION! THE PIZZA BOY AVOIDS IT! HE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND SPRINTS INTO THE ROPES TO WHERE HE GAIN ENOUGH SPEED FOR A FLYING ELBOW STRIKE RIGHT INTO HIS OPPONENT! PIZZA BOY IS STOPPED DEAD IN HIS TRACKS WITH SCOTT DIAMOND BASHING HIM RIGHT IN HIS SKULL WITH THE LEAD PIPE! Pizza Boy collapses to the floor from that shot to the face with Scott Diamond discarding the weapon to the side as it has served the purpose of him getting an initial advantage into this match! Scott lifts Pizza Boy up to his feet SLAPPING HIM ACROSS THE FACE BEFORE HOISTING HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! HE DIRECTS PIZZA BOY TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER TO WHERE HE LAUNCHES HIM INTO IT WITH THE TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB!
Jake Mercer: THE PIZZA BOY HAS BEEN DROPPED INTO THE TURNBUCKLE BEFORE SCOTT DIAMOND SPRINTS BACK INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER! Scott sprints back in LOOKING TO LAND HIM WITH THE CORNER LARIAT! BIG BOOT! PIZZA BOY LANDS WITH A BIG BOOT ON THE FACE OF DIAMOND TO SEND HIM TEETERING BACK TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE! The Pizza Boy sees the opening that has been presented towards him RUSHING IN TO HOOK HIM BY THE NECK FOR THE LAST SLICE! NO! SCOTT DIAMOND THROWS PIZZA BOY INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! PIZZA BOY LANDS INTO THE TURNBUCKLE AND STUMBLES OUT TOWARDS SCOTT WHO SPRINTS IN FOR THE POINT BLANK BICYCLE KICK! SCOTT DIAMOND JUST RUNS RIGHT THROUGH THE CHAMPION WITH THE BICYCLE KICK AND HE COULD GO AHEAD AND ELIMINATE HIM FROM THIS MATCH RIGHT HERE! WE COULD HAVE A NE– REVERSE EXPLODER SUPLEX! NASIR MOORE HAS JUST CAUGHT SCOTT DIAMOND FROM BEHIND AND TOSSED HIM TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH THE REVERSE EXPLODER SUPLEX!
Stew-O: Scott Diamond lies on his chest before he pushes himself onto his knees TO WHERE NASIR MOORE SPRINTS IN FOR THE SHINING WIZARD RIGHT INTO HIS OPPONENT! SCOTT CATCHES HIM BY THE LEG AND THROWS HIM ACROSS THE RING! Scott stands back up to his feet while Nasir rolls back to his SPRINTING IN FOR A SECOND POINT BLANK BICYCLE KICK! ANOTHER VICTIM MADE FROM THE BICYCLE KICK AS NASIR HAS BEEN TURNED INSIDE OUT! Scott Diamond roars out in pride with his arms displayed at his side, showing the confidence that he has inside of The Elimination Chamber, only for that confidence to be diluted when he’s met in the ring WITH THE FACE OF SCOTT OASIS! BOTH OF THE BIG BEASTS THAT WERE ENLISTED INTO THIS MATCH HAS FINALLY BEEN INTRODUCED! Both men stare right into each other’s eyes with blazing intensity BEFORE SCOTT DIAMOND SHOWS HIS COURAGE AND JUST FIRES A SHOT RIGHT INTO HIS CHIN! A HARD RIGHT INTO THE FACE FROM DIAMOND, FOLLOWED BY A RIGHT HAND FROM OASIS, AS A BRAWL HAS BROKEN OUT BETWEEN THEM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! WHO WILL GET THE UPPER HAND FROM THIS?
Jake Mercer: SCOTT DIAMOND STARTS TO THROW SOME MAJOR HAYMAKERS INTO SCOTT OASIS BEFORE HE SPRINTS BACK INTO THE ROPES TO GAIN SOME SPEED! COULD HE BE LOOKING FOR A THIRD POINT BLANK BICYCLE KICK TO REMOVE OASIS FROM THE EQUATION? POP-UP POWERBOMB! OASIS HAS JUST DROPPED DIAMOND TO THE CANVAS WITH THE POP-UP POWERBOMB TO WHERE WE SEE HIM STANDING TALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! Diamond starts to bring himself back up to his feet BUT OASIS PULLS HIM IN AND BURIES A SHARP KNEE RIGHT INTO HIS STOMACH! YOU CAN SEE ALL OF THE AIR ESCAPING HIS LUNGS FROM THAT SHOT FROM HIM! Oasis finally lifts Diamond in the air SPINNING HIM BACK BEFORE DROPPING HIM ON HIS SPINE WITH THE PRELUDE TO DESTRUCTION! THE REVERSE-SPIN POWERSLAM DRIVES DIAMOND STRAIGHT INTO THE CANVAS AS THE AMOUNT OF BODIES LYING THROUGHOUT THE CHAMBER IS MASSIVE!
Stew-O: Scott Oasis is now the last man standing in this match, just taking in the pride of being the one left standing, but he looks over towards the titantron SEEING THAT THE CLOCK IS STRIKING DOWN TO WHERE THE FINAL ENTRANT IS ABOUT TO BE PLACED INTO THE MATCH! Scott turns his attention over towards the final pod inside of the chamber, looking at Hurricane Hawk we see him frantically start to wrap those steel chains around his hands, as the crowd follows behind with the count!
10… 9… 8… 7… 6… 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… BUUUZZZZZZZZZ!!!
(Right when the buzzer sounds, there is no spotlight that randomly starts to the pick the chambers, as simply the final chamber pod opens to bring in HURRICANE HAWK!)
Jake Mercer: THE POD HAS OPENED FOR HURRICANE HAWK TO BE INTRODUCED INTO THE MATCH AND SCOTT OASIS IS BEGGING AND PLEADING FOR HIM TO JOIN HIM IN THE RING! With his fists wrapped with steel chains, Hurricane Hawk takes advantage of the opportunity and exits his pod, showing no fear or intimidation on his face as he displays only brazen confidence! Scott Oasis rushes in to try and tackle him to the ground BUT HE’S INTERRUPTED BY A DEVASTATING UPPERCUT FROM THE STEEL CHAIN FIST! SCOTT STUMBLES BACK FROM THE BLOW AS THE MIGHTY BEAST HAS BEEN RATTLED! THIS IS ON PAR WITH DAVID VS. GOLIATH RIGHT HERE, STEW! Hurricane Hawk is teeing away at Scott Oasis right now with those custom steel chain gauntlets of his, felling The Ice Man right before our very eyes, as he’s using the weapons that he brought into this match to his advantage! Hurricane Hawk continues to pummel him to where he forces Scott down to his knees FIRING WITH THESE SHOTS REPEATEDLY BEFORE FINALLY UNRAVELING THE CHAINS FROM HIS HANDS!
Stew-O: Hurricane Hawk paces behind Scott Oasis CRACKING HIS SPINE WITH THE CHAIN IN THE MANNER OF A WHIP AS YOU SEE OASIS CRUMBLE DOWN TO THE CANVAS! HAWK CONTINUES TO DELIVER THE PUNISHMENT ONTO HIM AS HE JUST SWINGS THAT CHAIN ONTO HIS SPINE! Satisfied with the way that he has inflicted pain onto his opponent, he walks in front of him and drops down TO WRAP THE CHAIN AROUND HIS NECK BEFORE HE FLIPS FORWARD FOR THE LAST CHANCERY! HAWK IS CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF OASIS RIGHT NOW AS HE REACHES AROUND THE RING TO ATTEMPT TO GRAB SOMETHING TO GET OUT OF THIS SUBMISSION! THE WEAPONS OF PAST COMPETITORS LITTER THE CANVAS FLOOR, BUT NONE OF THEM ARE CLOSE ENOUGH FOR HIM TO REACH! HAWK COULD EARN THE FIRST ELIMINATION WITH THIS CHAIN-ASSISTED LAST CHANCERY HE HAS APPLIED ONTO OASIS!
Jake Mercer: SCOTT OASIS HAS NOWHERE TO RUN, NOTHING TO TURN TO, AND HE’S GOING TO HAVE TO RESIGN TO DOING THE UNTHINKABLE! HIS HAND IS UP AS HE’S ABOUT TO– ELBOW DROP! SCOTT DIAMOND SAVES IT FOR SCOTT OASIS AS HE LANDS AN ELBOW DROP INTO HURRICANE HAWK, BUT WHY WOULD HE DO THAT? ESPECIALLY WHEN HE WAS ABOUT TO SUBMIT? Scott Diamond shakes his head and drags Hawk to his feet, arguing with him before he starts stomping onto the spine of Oasis, looking as if he wants to be the one to eliminate him from this match! However, Hawk spins Diamond around STRIKING WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE OUT OF FRUSTRATION AS HE JUST COST HIM AN ELIMINATION IN THIS MATCH! He could have put The Ice Man away with that Last Chancery, and he just cost him that, so he’s about to make sure that Diamond doesn’t walk out here with the championship! Hawk grabs Scott by the arm as he looks to toss him into the ropes BUT DIAMOND USES HIS STRENGTH TO HIS ADVANTAGE AND SPINS IT AROUND ON HIM!
Stew-O: HURRICANE HAWK REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND BOUNCES BACK TOWARDS SCOTT DIAMOND, WHO THROWS A WILD LARIAT TOWARDS HIM, BUT HAWK DUCKS UNDER IT AND LEAPS ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE! SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK! DIAMOND CATCHES HIM! SCOTT CAUGHT HIM IN MID-AIR BEFORE HE LIFTS HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! HERE HE GOES! COLD HARD JUSTICE! WAIT A MINUTE! HAWK NAILS DIAMOND WITH A KICK IN THE SPINE BEFORE HE DROPS DOWN ON HIS FEET WHILE SCOTT IS SEND TO THE ROPES! Hawk turns around from escaping certain disaster WHEN DIAMOND RUSHES IN FOR THE POINT BLANK BICYCLE KICK! KINGSLAYER! A SUPERKICK STRAIGHT INTO THE CHIN OF SCOTT DIAMOND BY HURRICANE HAWK! SCOTT DIAMOND COLLAPSES ONTO THE CANVAS WHILE HAWK ROLLS HIS LEG IN FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT TO MARK THE FIRST ELIMINATION IN THIS CHAMBER MATCH!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Jake Mercer: STILL NOTHING! SCOTT DIAMOND IS STILL ABLE TO THROW HIS SHOULDER STRAIGHT OFF OF THE CANVAS AS HURRICANE HAWK SHAKES HIS HEAD IN DISAPPOINTMENT! This match has been so violent, so chaotic, and we still have yet to be able to have one elimination in this Elimination Chamber Match! Hawk stands back to his feet and grabs Diamond by his head CHUNKING HIM RIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE BEFORE SPRINTING IN FOR THE CORNER SPLASH! BIG BOOT! HAWK EATS THE MASSIVE BOOT OF DIAMOND BEFORE HE CLIMBS HIS WAY TO THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE AS HE GRABS HAWK’S HEAD TO DRAG HIM UP THERE WITH HIM! What could possibly be running through the former EAW Hall of Fame Champion’s mind right now? Scott Diamond lands a heavy elbow strike to his face before hooking him around his neck LOOKING FOR WHAT COULD BE A TOP ROPE DEAD LEVEL DDT? NO! HAWK FINDS A WAY TO WRIGGLE HIS WAY OUT OF HIS GRASP AND SLAMS HIS HEAD WITH A HEADBUTT RIGHT INTO DIAMOND!
Stew-O: A SECOND HEADBUTT! A THIRD! AND A FOURTH BEHIND THAT! HURRICANE HAWK IS DOING EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO SECURE HIS PLACE IN THIS ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH AGAINST ALL THE ODDS! Hawk is teetering on the turnbuckle with Scott Diamond before he stares up at the chamber pod that is in front of him, jumping up on the ledge and hoisting himself up, afterwards bending over to grab Scott by his head to drag him up there with him! Hawk uses what strength he has left to be able to bring Diamond onto the top of the chamber pod with him as he stands back onto his feet, teetering a bit up there, from the toll that this match has already costed him! Hawk grabs Diamond by the head SMASHING IT INTO THE CHAIN LINK WALL BEHIND THEM! WHAT’S HE DOING? WHAT COULD THIS BE? HAWK HOOKS HIM BY THE NECK AS HE LOOKS DOWN FROM ABOVE! DON’T DO IT, HAWK! IT’S NOT WORTH IT! BY ALL THAT’S SACRED! HE JUST LEAPT OFF OF THE CHAMBER POD TOWARDS THE RING WITH SCOTT DIAMOND FOR A LEGACY CUTTER OFF OF IT!
Jake Mercer: THE LENGTHS THAT HURRICANE HAWK JUST TOOK FROM THAT MOVE RIGHT THERE WAS IMMENSE! HE COULD HAVE JUST PUT HIMSELF IN DANGER OF ELIMINATION JUST FOR THE ATTEMPT, BUT IT HAS PAID OFF AS THE DIVING CUTTER WITH SCOTT DIAMOND WAS ABLE TO CONNECT TREMENDOUSLY! However, it has taken a toll on both men as they are just lying down on the canvas from the exhaustion this match has given them, but LOOK AT THIS! HAWK SHOWS SOME SORT OF MOVEMENT AS HE STARTS TO CRAWL HIS WAY OVER TOWARDS SCOTT DIAMOND! HE SCRATCHES AND CLAWS HIS WAY TO HIM TO WHERE HE ROLLS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS AND DRAPES HIS BODY OVER HIM TO COVER HIM! COULD THIS BE THE FIRST ELIMINATION OF THE NIGHT?
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
Ring Announcer: Scott Diamond has been eliminated by Hurricane Hawk!
Stew-O: SCOTT DIAMOND IS THE FIRST MAN ELIMINATED IN THIS MATCH, BUT CAN YOU BLAME HIM? AFTER A DIVING LEGACY CUTTER FROM THE TOP OF THE CHAMBER POD, I DON’T THINK ANY MAN WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CONTINUE IN THIS MATCH! LOOK! HURRICANE HAWK IS WOBBLING HIMSELF EVEN JUST FROM DELIVERING THE AMAZING MOVE! Hawk pushes and fights his way back to his feet BUT WE CAN SEE SCOTT OASIS NOW SPRINTING IN FOR THE DISCUS LARIAT ONTO HAWK! HAWK DUCKS UNDER THE LARIAT AND PULLS OASIS IN FOR A NECKBREAKER RIGHT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! LOOK AT THIS! A SECOND RUSH OF ADRENALINE HAS JUST KICKED IN FOR THE SHOWSLAYER WITH HIM KIPPING RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND FEELING THE TREMENDOUS ENERGY OF THE CROWD! He looks over to see Scott Oasis picking himself up to his feet as he starts to stomp his foot on the canvas LOOKING FOR WHAT COULD BE A KINGSLAYER SUPERKICK TO START THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF THE ICE MAN’S DREAM OF RECLAIMING HIS FROZEN THRONE!
Jake Mercer: Scott Oasis is on his feet and turns around to try and fight with Hurricane Hawk WHO COMES IN QUICK WITH THE KINGSLAYER! WHAT? HE’S CAUGHT HIS LEG! SCOTT HAS HIM BY THE LEG AND WE SEE HAWK JUST HOPPING ALONG ON THE LEG HIMSELF! SCOTT PULLS HIM IN AND GRABS HIM BY THE THROAT BEFORE HOISTING HIM HIGH IN THE AIR! HE GRABS HIM BY THE THROAT AND THROWS HIM UP IN THE AIR FOR THE SPINEBUSTER! ALL THAT MOMENTUM THAT WAS SURGING THROUGH HAWK HAS JUST BEEN EXTINGUISHED WITH THIS ONE SPINEBUSTER FROM SCOTT! Scott stands up to his feet and roars with a passion to be the next EAW Answers World Champion as he marches towards the turnbuckle STRETCHING HIMSELF OUT AS HE SEETHES IN ANTICIPATION FOR THE RELAPSE PUNT KICK RIGHT HERE! HE WANTS TO JUST RATTLE THE SKULL OF HAWK TO PUT HIM OUT OF COMMISSION IN THIS MATCH! Hawk starts to pick himself up to his feet BUT NOT BEFORE SCOTT SPRINTS IN WITH EVERYTHING FOR THE RELAPSE PUNT KICK!
Stew-O: HURRICANE HAWK ISN’T DONE AS HE SHOOTS UP TO HIS FEET WITH LIFE! HE CATCHES SCOTT OASIS UNDER HIS LEGS AND LIFTS HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! HAWK COULD PUT ANOTHER BEAST OUT OF THE EQUATION HERE IN THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER WITH THIS ONE! HAWK LIFTS HIM UP FROM HIS SHOULDERS TO DROP HIM DOWN ON HIS KNEE FOR THE GO… TO… RETIREMENT! WHAT? SCOTT IS ABLE TO BLOCK THE KNEE WITH HIS HANDS BEFORE HE STRIKES WITH A DEVASTATING KNEE STRIKE TO HIS STOMACH! A SECOND KNEE STRIKE TO THE STOMACH! A THIRD KNEE STRIKE TO THE STOMACH! SCOTT IS JUST PUNISHING HAWK FOR ALMOST COSTING HIM HIS DREAM OF BEING EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! This opens it up to where Scott throws Hawk on his shoulders and carries him back to the center of the ring DROPPING HIM ON HIS HEAD WITH THE SEEK AND DESTROY! PSYCHO DRIVER! SCOTT HAS JUST SPIKED HAWK ON HIS HEAD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND FOLLOWS THAT UP BY ROLLING HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS TO HOOK HIS LEG IN FOR THE PIN! COULD WE SEE ANOTHER ELIMINATION IN THIS MATCH?
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
Ring Announcer: Hurricane Hawk has been eliminated by Scott Oasis!
Jake Mercer: ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST AS WE SAY SO LONG TO HURRICANE HAWK IN THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER! Scott Oasis stands on his feet with a sinister smile on his face as he scans the entire Elimination Chamber to find The Pizza Boy himself! Scott seems to be far from done with the man that beat him for that title in such a humiliating fashion before and to him, this match will serve as his penance! Scott starts to march his way over towards the rising EAW Answers World Champion BUT HE’S INTERRUPTED BY A REVERSE HURRICANRANA FROM JACOB SENN! JACOB IS STILL STANDING IN THIS MATCH AS WE SEE HIM ARISE FROM THE CANVAS WITH THAT DRIED BLOOD ON HIS FACE FROM THE PIZZA CUTTER AS HE HAS THROWN SCOTT STRAIGHT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! Jacob starts to look over towards the standing Scott into the corner SPRINTING IN AS HE THROWS A RUNNING CORNER HIGH KNEE RIGHT INTO HIS JAW! THE BIG MAN IS DAZED! SCOTT IS GROGGY IN THE CORNER WITH JACOB RUNNING BACK TO THE OPPOSITE CORNER TO RETURN WITH A SECOND RUNNING CORNER KNEE LIFT ONTO THE CHIN OF SCOTT! THIS MAN IS BARELY ABLE TO STAND, BUT IS CLINGING ONTO THE TOP ROPE TO WHERE DOESN’T CAVE INTO THE DAZED STATE THAT HE’S IN! JACOB RUSHES BACK INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER AND RETURNS ONCE MORE TO TRY AND MAKE THE ICE MAN FALL WITH ONE LAST RUNNING KNEE INTO HIM!
Stew-O: HE HITS IT ALL! WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS PUT INTO THAT FINAL KNEE, JACOB SENN FORCES SCOTT OASIS TO BE COMPLETELY OUT OF IT IN THE CORNER! Jacob climbs his way onto the top of the turnbuckle with Scott in his possession as he starts to lift the enormous frame of his opponent up there with him LOOKING FOR WHAT SEEMS TO BE A JACOB’S LADDER FROM THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE! TOP ROPE STYLES CLASH! HE NAILS ALL OF IT AS HE LAUNCHED HIMSELF OFF THE TURNBUCKLE TO LAND A BEAUTIFUL JACOB’S LADDER FROM THE TOP ROPE! THE BLOODIED JACOB SENN ROLLS SCOTT OASIS ONTO HIS SHOULDERS AND STARTS TO GO FOR THE ELIMINATION! WE COULD BE DOWN TO THE FINAL THREE MEN RIGHT HERE BEFORE OUR VERY EYES!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Jake Mercer: UNBELIEVABLE! SCOTT OASIS THROWS HIS SHOULDER UP OFF THE CANVAS TO PREVENT HIS OWN ELIMINATION AS JACOB SENN IS BESIDE HIMSELF FOR WHAT JUST HAPPENED! Jacob starts to shake his head in anger as he is not going to let this match get the better of him tonight as he marches towards the turnbuckle LOOKING STRAIGHT TOWARDS HIS OPPONENT WITH VEHEMENT ANGER AS HE SCREAMS FOR HIM TO START TO GET TO HIS FEET! COULD WE SEE IT? COULD JACOB BE LOOKING TO END OASIS RIGHT HERE WITH THE SHADOW STEP? Oasis starts to show some sign of motion as Jacob is anticipating it in the corner LOOKING LIKE HE’S ABOUT TO PUT HIM AWAY! THIS COULD B– ETHER!
Stew-O: OUT OF NOWHERE! NASIR MOORE HAS JUST BLINDSIDED JACOB SENN FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TURNBUCKLE WITH AN ETHER KICK RIGHT INTO HIS JAW! NASIR THROWS JACOB DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS AS THIS COULD BE WHERE HE GAINS THE ELIMINATION AS HE HOOKS JACOB IN FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT! WILL HE SEE JACOB’S DESIRE TO BE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION IN HOPES OF GAINING A REDEMPTION MATCH WITH MR. DEDEDE PUT TO AN END?
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
Ring Announcer: Jacob Senn has been eliminated by Nasir Moore!
Jake Mercer: I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! NASIR MOORE HAS ONCE AGAIN COST JACOB SENN AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! NOT ONLY THAT, BUT HE JUST COST HIM ANY HOPE OF GAINING A POTENTIAL REMATCH WITH MR. DEDEDE IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE! AT THE END OF THE NIGHT, JACOB SENN HAS BEEN ELIMINATED FROM THE MATCH AS HE IS ROLLING INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER AS WE SPEAK! Nasir Moore has the match in his control right now as he turns around to see Scott Oasis has crawled his way over to the ropes to where he can pick himself up! Nasir sprints towards his opponent TIPPING SCOTT OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE GRATE FLOOR WITH A LARIAT! Nasir has firm control of the ring before he turns around AS HE’S MET WITH THE SIGHT OF THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION ENTERING THE RING! THE PIZZA BOY HAS MADE HIS WAY INTO THE RING AND IS RIGHT NOW STARING A HOLE INTO THE FACE OF NASIR! Both men are viewed as heroes to the audience here tonight, but inside of this ring, they are about to go to war to see who will walk out of this match with the EAW Answers World Championship in their possession! Both men get into each other’s face about who will be walking out with the championship BEFORE THE PASSIONATE CHAMPION ROCKS THE CHALLENGER WITH A STIFF SLAP TO THE FACE! THIS CAUSES NASIR TO STUMBLE FOR A SLIGHT MOMENT, BUT NOT BEFORE NASIR RESPONDS IN TURN WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE OF HIS OWN!
Stew-O: BOTH MEN ARE FIGHTING OUT BETWEEN EACH OTHER WITH THE PIZZA BOY STRIKING WITH A SHOOT KICK TO THE STOMACH OF NASIR MOORE BEFORE HE SPRINTS BACK INTO THE ROPES! Pizza Boy rebounds off the ropes and returns with a running palm strike BUT NASIR CATCHES HIM BY THE ARM AS HE HOPES TO SPIN HIM AROUND FOR THE FOURTH SEAL! WAIT! WAIT! WAIT! PIZZA BOY THROWS NASIR AWAY FROM HIM WITH THE ARM DRAG AS NASIR ROLLS TO HIS FEET TO WHERE HE TURNS AROUND RIGHT INTO A JUMPING ENZIGURI FROM THE CHAMPION! Nasir is stunned as he drops to one knee to where we see Pizza Boy rush back into the ropes to RETURN INTO A KITCHEN SINK BY NASIR HIMSELF! A KNEE STRAIGHT INTO THE STOMACH THAT SENDS PIZZA BOY FLYING ACROSS THE RING! NASIR SPRINTS STRAIGHT INTO THE ROPES BEFORE WE SEE HIM RETURN TO A STANDING PIZZA BOY WITH A SECOND KITCHEN SINK RIGHT INTO HIM! Nasir continues to rush into the ropes as he rebounds off of them SPRINTING BACK TO PIZZA BOY THAT GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO HIS FACE!
Jake Mercer: NASIR MOORE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY OF THE ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO CONTINUE TO MAKE HIS WAY TO THE ROPES! HE LEAPS ON THE MIDDLE ROPE TO SPRINGBOARD BACK TO THE PIZZA BOY WITH A LEAPING CLOTHESLINE! NASIR SHOOTS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS HE CAN FEEL THE ADRENALINE RUSHING THROUGH HIS VEINS TO WHERE HE MAKES HIS WAY BEHIND PIZZA BOY! He starts to feel the electricity and calls for the crowd to continue to rally behind him as he hooks Pizza Boy in TOSSING HIM BACK TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE WITH THE ANGELIC FURY! HALF AND HALF SUPLEX! NASIR THROWS PIZZA BOY HARD ON THE CANVAS TO WHERE THE CHAMPION ROLLS BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER! Nasir marches his way across the ring to the opposite corner from Pizza Boy RALLYING FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE CROWD AS HE AIMS FOR THE ETHER INTO THE CHAMPION! WE COULD SEE THE ELIMINATION OF THE CHAMPION RIGHT HERE BEFORE OUR EYES! NASIR SPRINTS WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS FOR THE ETHER KICK!
Stew-O: OH MY GOODNESS! A BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR SHOT STRAIGHT INTO NASIR MOORE… BY JACOB SENN?! THIS MAN HAS ALREADY BEEN ELIMINATED! WHAT ON EARTH IS HE STILL DOING IN THIS ELIMINATION CHAMBER? JACOB IS JUST SMASHING THE BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR INTO THE SPINE OF NASIR RELENTLESSLY! YOU CAN SEE NASIR WRITHING AROUND IN AGONY FROM HAVING HIS FLESH TORN FROM HIS BODY FROM THE BARBED-WIRE, AS HE ATTEMPTS TO ESCAPE JACOB BY ROLLING OUT ONTO THE STEEL GRATE FLOOR ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT JACOB JUST CONTINUES TO FOLLOW HIM TO THE OUTSIDE! Nasir starts to crawl his way to the chain link wall to try and pick himself up to his feet BUT JACOB COMES FROM BEHIND AND SMASHES HIS FACE INTO THE CHAIN LINK! AGAIN! A THIRD! FOURTH! FIFTH! SIXTH! FINALLY, A SEVENTH TIME THAT HE DRIVES HIS FACE RIGHT INTO THE CHAIN LINK WALL BEFORE HE FINALLY DRAGS HIM OUT OF IT! THE PUNISHMENT THAT JACOB SENN IS DELIVERING UNTO NASIR MOORE IS JUST INSANE RIGHT NOW! The referee is trying to do his best to get Jacob out of here, but each time he tries to get involved, Jacob just shoves him away from him! Jacob bends over to grab barbed-wire steel chair again and places the edge of the chair on the throat of Nasir as he turns him around towards the chamber pod RUSHING TOWARDS IT AS HE THROWS HIM RIGHT INTO THE CHAMBER POD!
Jake Mercer: NASIR MOORE’S THROAT HAS JUST BEEN CRUSHED FROM THAT BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR BEING DRIVEN INTO IT AS JACOB SENN JUST WATCHES HIM ROLL AROUND IN AGONY WHILE HOLDING HIS THROAT! More referees are entering the Elimination Chamber BUT JACOB IS FAR FROM DONE WITH NASIR AS HE HOISTS HIM OFF OF THE GRATE FLOOR! He motions him in front of the chamber pod as he hooks him in THROWING HIM BACK WITH THE EXPLODER SUPLEX INTO THE LEXAN GLASS! THE CHAMBER POD SHATTERS WITH NASIR’S BODY BEING FLUNG RIGHT INTO IT AS HE CRUMBLES INTO THE DESTROYED CHAMBER POD! Jacob arises from the wreckage to see multiple referees walking towards him to try and get him out BUT JACOB GRABS THE BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR AND STARTS THREATENING TO USE IT ON THEM IF THEY DON’T LEAVE HIM BE! HE EVEN SWINGS AT ONE OF THE REFEREES BEFORE WALKING OVER TO NASIR TO DRAG HIM OUT OF THE CARNAGE! The frustration of failing to win this match, the feeling of loss that has to be going through this man’s mind through the trials of this season, Jacob has seemed to have lost it here tonight! Jacob finally drags him out of the chamber pod, slamming his head into the steel grate floor before dropping down LOCKING HIS ARMS AND GRABBING HIS NECK FOR THE ILLUMINATION! THE SCISSORED ARMBAR CROSSFACE IN TRIBUTE OF BRODY SPARKS! HE HOLDS HIM DOWN AND STARTS WRENCHING HIM ON THE NECK AS YOU CAN ALREADY SEE NASIR START TO TURN PURPLE FROM THE CHOKE! THE REFEREES ARE DOING THEIR BEST TO PULL HIM OFF OF NASIR, BUT THE SCREAMS OF DESPAIR AND RAGE ON SENN’S FACE AS TEARS DESCEND FROM HIS EYES TELL THE ENTIRE STORY!
Stew-O: Eventually, the referees are able to strip Jacob Senn away from Nasir Moore BUT JACOB LEAPS OUT OF THE REFEREES AND PICKS HIS BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR BACK UP! He places the barbed-wire steel chair under Nasir, as he steps back LOOKING FOR WHAT COULD BE A SHADOW STEP! Nasir starts to try to stand on his feet, though he can barely be able to do that, as we see Jacob run through the referees GOING FOR THE SHADOW STEP INTO THE BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR! THE CURB STOMP! JACOB SENN JUST MADE NASIR MOORE EAT THE BARBED-WIRE STEEL CHAIR AS YOU CAN ALREADY SEE THE BLOOD START TO SEEP OUT OF THE FACE OF NASIR! Pleased with the job that he has done right here and swarmed by the sheer amount of referees that have entered the structure, Jacob raises his hands and leaves the Elimination Chamber finally while screaming to Nasir about how he deserved this! Jacob has exited the chamber and Nasir has just been decimated to be left broken on the floor BUT WE SEE SCOTT OASIS STANDING ON HIS FEET ON THE ROPES AS HE LOOKS DOWN TO SEE THE DILAPIDATED STATE THAT NASIR WAS LEFT IN! With no hesitation, Scott Oasis exits the ring AND ROLLS NASIR ON HIS SHOULDERS FOR HIM TO PIN HIM FOR THE ELIMINATION!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
Ring Announcer: Nasir Moore has been eliminated by Scott Oasis!
Jake Mercer: AS UNFAIR AND ABHORRENT THAT IT MIGHT BE, NASIR MOORE HAS BEEN ELIMINATED FROM THIS MATCH AND WILL NOT BE THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! If Jacob Senn wasn’t going to walk out with the championship himself because of him, he was taking Nasir Moore along with him is what I got out of this! However, WE ARE DOWN TO OUR FINAL TWO IN THIS MATCH TO AS SCOTT OASIS STANDS ON HIS FEET AND TURNS AROUND TO ENTER THE RING WHERE WE SEE THE PIZZA BOY START TO SHOW SIGNS OF LIFE! Pizza Boy starts to move his way out of the corner, looking across the ring to see Scott Oasis standing before him, as this is the last challenge for him to go through if he wants to retain the EAW Answers World Championship! The hunger that Scott Oasis has for the championship forces him to wait no longer TO WHERE HE RUSHES STRAIGHT TOWARDS THE CHAMPION TO MAKE SURE THAT HE CAN GET THIS OVER WITH! ELBOW STRIKE! PIZZA BOY WITH A CRUSHING FOREARM STRIKE RIGHT THERE BEFORE HE SPRINTS IN LOOKING TO CONTINUE THE ASSAULT WI– HEADBUTT! SCOTT DROPS PIZZA BOY WITH A BRUTAL HEADBUTT TO WHERE HE DROPS DOWN AND MOUNTS HIM ON THE GROUND! SCOTT STARTS DRIVING DOWN ON HIS FACE WITH AN ARRAY OF ELBOW STRIKES INTO HIS FACE! OASIS IS BRUTALIZING THE CHAMPION TO WHERE HE KNOWS THAT HE HAS FIRM CONTROL IN THIS MATCH!
Stew-O: Scott Oasis stands on his feet and starts screaming to the fans in attendance that he’s about to reclaim his frozen throne tonight while he drags The Pizza Boy up to his feet LAUNCHING HIM INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER WHILE HE STRUTS WITH CONFIDENCE TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! Scott growls in fury as he turns to sprint into the corner BUT PIZZA BOY JUST FLIES OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A LOW DROPKICK TO THE LEG OF OASIS TO WHERE HE IS FLOORED! PIZZA BOY WON’T BE LEAVING THIS ELIMINATION CHAMBER WITHOUT A FIGHT ON HIS HANDS! Pizza Boy stands on his feet and looks to see Scott starting to get back to his BUT THIS LEAVES AN OPENING TO WHERE THE CHAMPION RUSHES IN TO SEND HIM BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A BASEMENT DROPKICK! PIZZA BOY LANDS IT ALL ONTO THE JAW OF OASIS TO WHERE HE’S FLOORED WHILE PIZZA BOY ROLLS UP TO HIS FEET TO TAKE IN THE ADULATION OF THE CROWD RALLYING BEHIND HIM! THEY WANT TO SEE PIZZA BOY GET HIS REDEMPTION, THEY WANT TO SEE HIM WIN THIS MATCH IN A MOMENT THAT WAS ROBBED FROM HIM LAST YEAR, AND HE NODS HIS HEAD AS A PROMISE THAT HE WILL DELIVER! The Pizza Boy marches his way to the turnbuckle to where he makes the climb to the top as we see Scott Oasis attempt to stand back to his feet AS PIZZA BOY LOOKS TO MAKE THE LEAP TOWARDS HIM! PIZZA BOY LAUNCHES HIMSELF OFF THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE AND FLIES TOWARDS SCOTT WITH THE FAZBEAR FLOP! THE TOP ROPE BACK SENTON!
Jake Mercer: SCOTT OASIS ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY TO AVOID THE FAZBEAR FLOP FROM THE PIZZA BOY! Scott starts to rise to his feet while Pizza Boy is feeling the effects of that missed senton, but he starts to make his way up to his feet, as he has to keep up with his opponent to make sure that he doesn’t become unseated as champion here tonight! Pizza Boy makes it up to his feet BUT JUST IN TIME FOR HIM TO RETURN RIGHT BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH DISCUS LARIAT FROM SCOTT THAT TURNS HIM INSIDE OUT! Pizza Boy rolls his way over towards the turnbuckle while Scott follows him over and lifts him up to his feet THROWING HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS TO WHERE HE LOOKS TO CARRY HIM OVER TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING FOR THE SEEK AND DESTROY! HOLD UP! PIZZA BOY HAS HIS LEGS CURLED ONTO THE TOP ROPE NEAR THE TURNBUCKLE AS HE’S FIGHTING TO KEEP HIMSELF FROM BEING DROPPED ON HIS HEAD FROM THIS PSYCHO DRIVER! SCOTT STARTS TO PULL AND SNATCH THE PIZZA BOY TO TRY AND GET HIM OUT, BUT THE HEART THAT HE HAS MAKES IT TO WHERE PIZZA BOY WILL NOT RELEASE! Scott decides that the struggle isn’t worth it as he returns Pizza Boy over to the turnbuckle where he sits him on it BUT BASHES HIS HEAD UP AGAINST THE CHAMBER POD BEHIND HIM TO WHERE HE’S STUNNED ON THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE!
Stew-O: The Pizza Boy is in a precarious position right now as he sits atop of the turnbuckle, but something seems to have caught the corner of Scott Oasis’ eye, as he turns his head over towards the wall that has an array of weapons hanging on them! No one in this match has even touched these weapons as the chaotic nature of the match seemed to have distracted them from this! Scott exits the ring and walks over to where he reaches up GRABBING A TABLE FROM THE WALL OF THE CHAMBER AND HOISTS IT DOWN TO WHERE HE STARTS TO DRAG IT BACK INTO THE RING WITH HIM! Scott takes it over towards the turnbuckle BUT SLAMS PIZZA BOY’S HEAD BACK INTO THE CHAMBER POD TO KEEP HIM STUNNED FOR THE MOMENT TO WHERE HE STARTS TO SET THE TABLE UP IN FRONT OF HIM! Scott has finished putting the table up and turns around to climb on the top of the turnbuckle with Pizza Boy WHO RESPONDS WITH A BRUTAL ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW OF HIS OPPONENT TO FIGHT BACK WITH! PIZZA BOY CONTINUES TO FIGHT WITH THE ELBOW STRIKES TO TRY AND GAIN AN ADVANTAGE, BUT SCOTT JUST STOPS HIM DEAD IN HIS TRACKS WITH A HEADBUTT STRAIGHT INTO HIM! ANOTHER HEADBUTT! A THIRD HEADBUTT THAT ALMOST SENDS PIZZA BOY CAREENING OFF THE TURNBUCKLE! SCOTT OASIS PULLS THE PIZZA BOY IN BETWEEN HIS LEGS AS WE SEE HIM LOOKING TO HIT A TOP ROPE PILEDRIVER INTO THAT TABLE THAT HE’S SET UP BEHIND HIM!
Jake Mercer: AWESOME! SCOTT OASIS IS GOING TO BE OUR NE– WHAT? THE PIZZA BOY IS ABLE TO WRIGGLE HIS WAY OUT OF THE PILEDRIVER AND RETURNS TO JUST BATTERING OASIS WITH FOREARMS! HE’S JUST GOING TO TOWN AS HE’S BEING RELENTLESS WITH THESE ELBOW STRIKES! SCOTT TRIES TO FIGHT BACK, BUT THE PASSIONATE CHAMPION WILL NOT ALLOW HIM TO DO SO AS HE STARTS TO STAND ON THE TURNBUCKLE! Pizza Boy is firing on all cylinders right now LANDING ONE FINAL STIFF FOREARM SHOT TO HIS FACE AS SCOTT TEETERS ON THE TURNBUCKLE AS IF HE’S ABOUT TO FALL OFF THROUGH THE TABLE, BUT PIZZA BOY CATCHES HIM AND PULLS HIM UP! Pizza Boy spins around to where he’s facing the chamber pod that his head was bashed into and hooks Scott by the neck RUNNING ON THE CHAMBER POD AS HE FLIPS BACK FOR THE LAST SLICE FROM THE TOP ROPE INTO THE TABLE!
Stew-O: THE STANDING ASAI DDT HAS JUST SENT SCOTT OASIS FALLING OFF THE TURNBUCKLE INTO THE TABLE THAT HE INTRODUCED INTO THIS MATCH WITH THE PIZZA BOY LEAPING OFF THE TURNBUCKLE DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS WITH HIM! THAT TABLE HAS JUST BEEN SHATTERED INTO A MILLION PIECES AND THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET! BOTH OF THESE MEN HAVE JUST SOARED THROUGH THE AIR DOWN INTO THE TABLE AND ALL OUR CHAMPION NEEDS TO DO IS DRAPE HIS ARM ONTO SCOTT TO RETAIN HIS CHAMPIONSHIP! Scott Oasis hasn’t shown a single sign of life in this match BUT THE PIZZA BOY STARTS TO ROLL HIS WAY OVER TOWARDS SCOTT HAS HE DRAPES HIS ARM ON TOP OF HIM FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Crippled By Pizza” by Horse the Band plays in the background as the crowd shoots up to their feet in excitement as we see The Pizza Boy roll off of Scott Oasis with a sigh of relief shooting through him. He stands up to a knee to where he’s handed his EAW Answers World Championship before he shoots up to his feet to celebrate the occasion.)
Ring Announcer: Ring Announcer: Here is your winner AND SSSSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTTIIIIIILLLLLLLLLLLL EAW AAAAAANNNNSSSSSSWWWEEEERRRRRSSSSS WWWWWWOOOOOORRRRRRLLLLLLDDDDDDDDD CCCCCCHHHHAAAAAAMMMMMMMMPPPPPIIIIIIOOOOOONNNNNN… THHHHHEEEEEEE PIIIIIIZZZZZZZZAAAAAAAA BOOOOOOOYYYYYYYYYY!!!
Stew-O: UNBELIEVABLE! THE PIZZA BOY HAS OBTAINED THE REDEMPTION THAT HE SOUGHT, ATONING FOR THE ACTIONS OF THE LAST YEAR’S ELIMINATION CHAMBER, AND WILL BE WALKING OUT OF HERE TONIGHT STILL OUR EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! This has to be a major weight lifted off of his shoulders as he can now move forward to being known as the best champion that this brand has ever been able to witness!
Jake Mercer: This was definitely an impressive feat to where there has to be no doubt in anyone’s mind to where we see The Pizza Boy prove to the entire world that this man has to be one of the best to hold the EAW Answers World Champion! However, I would hate to be backstage now to listen to Sebastian Monroe after the way that Sco–
(“The Best It’s Gonna Get” by Celldweller interrupts the celebration of The Pizza Boy to where he looks over towards the stage to see a livid Sebastian Monroe marching out onto the stage with a microphone in his hand, furious about what has happened.)
Sebastian Monroe: NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! SCOTT OASIS SHOULD HAVE WON THIS MATCH! SCOTT OASIS WAS SUPPOSED TO WIN THIS MATCH AND BE CROWNED EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION TO SIT UPON HIS FROZEN THRONE ON THIS BRAND! YOU… YOU… YOU PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR A WORLD CHAMPION! Do you honestly think that I should be like all of these sheep and congratulate you for surviving the Elimination Chamber Match? I DON’T CARE! This was his moment and you ripped it away from him!
(The furious look on his face quickly turns into a sinister smile to where it confuses The Pizza Boy.)
Sebastian Monroe: However, when one door closes, another opens. Scott Oasis might have not been able to claim the EAW Answers World Championship, but Sebastian Monroe will take that world championship away from you! That’s why I have a SPECIAL announcement to make! Monroe Enterprises has decided to sign a NEW client under his umbrella to retain his services and that new client is this man!
(Sebastian Monroe motions to the stage to introduce his new client… ONLY FOR THE PIZZA BOY TO BE DROPPED FROM BEHIND BY NICO BORG SMASHING HIS BRIEFCASE RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF HIS SKULL!)
Stew-O: IT’S NICO BORG! NICO BORG IS HERE! HE HAS JUST ASSAULTED THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION AND… HE’S SHOVING THE BRIEFCASE INTO THE REFEREE AS HE’S SCREAMING RIGHT IN HIS FACE! HE’S CASHING IT IN! NICO BORG IS CASHING IN HIS CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE RIGHT NOW! THE REFEREE SCRAMBLES BACK TOWARDS THE RING ANNOUNCER WHILE NICO GOES TO HIS CORNER AND PIZZA BOY STARTS TO CRAWL TO HIS TO TRY AND PICK HIMSELF BACK TO HIS FEET!
Ring Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen… NICO BORG HAS CHOSEN TO CASH IN HIS CASH IN THE VAULT BRIEFCASE… THEREFORE THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL AND IS FOR THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
Jake Mercer: THE PIZZA BOY IS PULLING HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET AS THE EXHAUSTED CHAMPION LEANS BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLE, MOUTHING TO HIMSELF IN DISBELIEF ABOUT THIS, AS THE REFEREE TAKES THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND HOISTS IT HIGH IN THE AIR! COULD LIGHTNING STRIKE TWICE HERE TONIGHT FOR NICO BORG OR WILL PIZZA BOY BE ABLE TO ESCAPE THIS HEIST?
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: THE MATCH HAS BEEN CALLED TO START AND NICO BORG WASTES LITTLE TIME TO JUST RUSH STRAIGHT AFTER THE PIZZA BOY WITH A RUNNING CORNER DROPKICK! HOLD UP A SECOND! THE PIZZA BOY DUCKS DOWN AND HOOKS NICO BORG UNDER HIS LEG FOR A ROLL-UP PIN! THE CHAMPION COULD RETAIN HIS CHAMPIONSHIP RIGHT HERE AS THE REFEREE SLIDES IN FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Jake Mercer: NICO BORG THROWS HIS SHOULDER UP TO KICK OUT OF THE PIN AS HE ROLLS UP TO HIS FEET, SHOCKED THAT THE PIZZA BOY WAS ABLE TO EVEN MAKE A PIN ATTEMPT ON HIM, BUT HE HAS THE EXPERIENCE EDGE OF BEING A VICTIM OF BEING CASHED IN ON IN THIS SCENARIO BEFORE! Pizza Boy stands on his feet and he’s barely able to stand on his feet to where we see Nico starting to think twice about this cash-in! Both men circle around the ring as they hope to find someway t–
(“Deadz” by Migos interrupts the match as we see The Heart Break Boy rush out from the backstage area towards the ring to where he can help out his protege in this match.)
Stew-O: THE HEART BREAK BOY HAS MADE HIS WAY OUT HERE TO WHERE HE CAN HELP HIS FRIEND OUT, BUT NICO BORG RUSHES IN TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS WHILE THE PIZZA BOY IS DISTRACTED BY THIS! RUNNING SINGLE LEG DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! PIZZA BOY COLLAPSES FROM THE KICK AS NICO SMILES IN JOY RIGHT AT HBB, MOCKING HIM AS HE TELLS HIM THAT HE CAN WATCH HIS FRIEND BURN, WITH NICO HOOKING PIZZA BOY BETWEEN HIS LEGS AND THROWING HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! THE LAST RITES!
Jake Mercer: WHOA! THE PIZZA BOY LEAPFROGS DOWN TO THE FLOOR TO THE SURPRISE OF EVERYONE IN ATTENDANCE, BUT DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE WHEN HE DOES IT, AS THE TOLL OF THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER IS PLAYING INTO EFFECT! Pizza Boy starts to stand back to his feet when Nico turns around MET WITH THE SUPERKICK TO THE FACE OF NICO BORG! NICO IS STUNNED AS PIZZA BOY HOOKS HIM BY THE NECK FOR THE LAST SLICE! SEBASTIAN MONROE JUMPS UP ON THE RING APRON! HE’S MADE HIS WAY OUT HERE AND STARTS SCREAMING FOR NICO TO GET OUT OF IT!
Stew-O: THE PIZZA BOY LEAPS UP AND HITS ALL OF THE STANDING ASAI DDT! THE LAST SLICE HAS BEEN CONNECTED AS HE HOOKS NICO BY THE LEG FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT! HOWEVER, THE REFEREE HAS TO DEAL WITH SEBASTIAN MONROE AT RINGSIDE! The referee starts to tell Sebastian Monroe that he needs to be off of the ring apron as a furious Pizza Boy stands up and walks over towards him! The two of them begin arguing between each other BUT THE HEART BREAK BOY PULLS SEBASTIAN MONROE DOWN AND BLASTS MONROE WITH A GOLDPRINT AT RINGSIDE! MONROE IS OUT! MONROE HAS JUST BEEN KNOCKED OUT WITH THE SUPERKICK!
Jake Mercer: The Pizza Boy thanks him as The Heart Break Boy jumps up onto the apron, talking to him about what he needs to do, as we see the two men share an embrace between one another. Pizza Boy moves away from the ropes JUST TO GIVE NICO BORG ENOUGH OF A CHANCE TO LIFT HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS FROM BEHIND! NICO GRABS THE ARMS OF PIZZA BOY TO GET HIM IN THE STRAIGHTJACKET AS HBB IS HELPLESS BUT TO WATCH! MILVIAN BRIDGE! THE STRAIGHTJACKET ELECTRIC CHAIR DROPS PIZZA BOY ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD, NECK, AND BACK AS NICO HOLDS HIM DOWN FOR THE BRIDGE! THE REFEREE SLIDES IN FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“You Want It Darker” by Leonard Cohen plays in the background as we see Nico Borg roll out of the ring as The Heart Break Boy sprints in with anger towards him, as we see a joyous Nico celebrating as he’s handed the EAW Answers World Championship.)
Ring Announcer: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND NNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWW EAW ANSWERS HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WOOOORRLLLDD….. NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICCCCCCCCCCCOOOOOOOOOOOO BOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!
Jake Mercer: YES! YES! YES! PREPARE FOR THE ERA OF INVICTUS BECAUSE A NEW EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION HAS BEEN CROWNED AND IT BELONGS NOW TO NONE OTHER THAN NICO BORG! He picked his spot, he chose the precise moment that he would cash that case in and even though The Pizza Boy but up the best fight for a cash-in that I have seen in a long time, the toll of the Elimination Chamber paid its cost!
Stew-O: Not only that, but you can’t help but to say that the ringside influence of The Heart Break Boy and Sebastian Monroe played a part in this cash-in! I mean, both of them might have just cost Pizza Boy in retaining his championship here tonight, but Nico Borg used that to his advantage and became the new EAW Answers World Champion! Congratulations are in order for him and whenever Sebastian Monroe wakes up, I’m sure that celebration will begin!
(Nico Borg drapes the EAW Answers World Championship on his shoulder as he walks over to Sebastian Monroe, picking him up and he can’t even stand on his own, carrying him out with him as he hoists the EAW Answers World Championship high! The Heart Break Boy tries his best to console The Pizza Boy in his defeat, but Pizza Boy shoves him away as he holds his back in pain.)
(We cut over to ringside as the Elimination Chamber is lowering down onto the ring. Rebecca Sawyer is at ringside, doing her introductions from her seat in the timekeeper’s area.)
Rebecca Sawyer: The following contest is an EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH…..AND IT IS FOR….THHHEEEEE EAWWWWWW WOOORRRRLLLLDDDDD HHEEEEEEAAAAVVVVYYYYYYWEEEIIGGGGHHHHTTTT CHAAAAAMMMPPPPIIONNNNSHIPPP!!!!
(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin plays as Jamie O’Hara steps out onto the scene with a sledgehammer in his hand to a mixed reaction from the crowd. He holds the hammer up in one hand and uses the free hand to tap the World Heavyweight Championship that is around his waist before strutting down the ramp. Upon a close up from the camera we see that Jamie has an armband with a blue heart stitched on it which he gives a quick pat as well before walking up the steps and entering the chamber, handing off his title and removing his shirt as he goes into his pod. With everything removed, bandages wrapped around his body are revealed, showing that he’s still not fully healed from his fall on Voltage.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Introducing first, from Melbourne, Australia, weighing in at 190 pounds…..he is the reigning, defending EAW World Heavyweight Champion……”The Saint of Valiance”……JAAAAAAAAAMMMIIIEEEEE O’HARA.
Nick Angel: The big day has finally arrived for Jamie O’Hara. He must fight with five other men to keep ahold of that title of his and he’ll be doing so with an injury! Jamie is a crafty individual but we shall see if he can overcome these odds.
(“Ambitionz Az A Ridah” by Tupac plays as TLA capturing the adoration of the audience as they explode for him before he even steps out. TLA looks to be in a good mood and is waving his hands about, guiding the flow of the crowd’s chants.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Up next, making his way to the ring from The Poon Palace in Miami, Florida! Weighing in at 220 pounds! TTTTTTTTT….LLLLLLLLLL……AAAAAAAAAAA!!
Kawajai: TLA is out to the ring! TLA with his usual calm demeanor and swagger to him but do not think he will be playing games tonight! TLA is still a man on the mission like he always is. TLA has gone through more than any other challenger and this match and woahhh….what is that in his hands?
TLA: (no mic) I GOT THE CHANCLAS FOR YOU MOTHAFUCKAS!
Kawajai: Chanclas. Nail covered chanclas. I have seen it all.
(TLA heads into his pod and suddenly the picture shifts to the “Gorilla Position” as Carlos, dressed in all black ring gear and sporting a special wrist band with the initials “B.S.”, stands ready as “Problem” By Webbie/Boosie Badazz starts to play through the stadium. The camera fixes in on Carlos’s expression, he walks up to one of the cameras, holding up the wristband with Brody’s initials on it.)
Rebecca Sawyer: From Baton Rouge, Louisiana, currently residing in New Orleans! Weighing in at 225 pounds! He is “The Red Storm”……CAAAAARRRRLLLLOOOSSSS ROSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Nick Angel: Carlos Rosso is clearly entering this match with a purpose as he steps out like a WARRIOR wearing specially made gauntlets wrapped around his hands and metal shin guards at his legs! That’s more than a weapon, that’s practically armor! Carlos Rosso isn’t going to be messing around, this is prime, focused Carlos ready to give it his all!
(Carlos Rosso gets into his pod as “30 Seconds to Mars” by Oblivion starts to play and Keelan Cetinich makes his way to the stage in special blue striped tights and a boomerang in his hands.)
Rebecca Sawyer: From Gold Coast, Australia, currently residing in Los Angeles, California! Weighing in at 218 pounds! He is “The Killer”…..KEEEEEEEEELLLLAAANNNN CEEEETTTTIINNNICCCHHHH!!!
Keelan Cetinich: (no mic) All of these months of grinding! All of the work I’ve put in! I’M WHERE I BELONG NOW!
(Keelan Cetinich rushes into the ring and gets into his pod, teasing throwing his boomerang at Carlos’ pod to annoy him on his way. We switch back to the stage and “Lies” by Evanescence is playing while Amadeus makes his entrance, draped in a long chain which he swings around in his hand. He walks down the ramp, heading toward a ring crew member and handing over his IW title before stepping into the ring.)
Rebecca Sawyer: From Naha, Okinawa, Japan! Weighing in at 210 pounds! He is the EAW Interwire Champion……”The Radical Dreamer”……AMMMMMAAAADDDDEUUUUUSSSSSS!!!
Nick Angel: The man of few words, our Interwire Champion Amadeus gets an unlucky draw in this match as he is one of two people to start this off! This is is a difficult position but not impossible and if anyone would be up to the task it’s The Radical Dreamer….especially with those chains!
(“FEEL.” by Kendrick Lamar starts to play as Lars Grier comes out, swinging around a crowbar while he menaces his way to the ring. Lars has on new blue and gold facepaint but brushes past the camera man trying to get a close up, focusing on getting into the ring.)
Rebecca Sawyer: And lastly, from Cincinnati, Ohio, now residing in Las Vegas, Nevada! Weighing in at 275 pounds! He is “The Raven”…..LLLLLAAAARRRRSSSS GRIIIEEEERRRRR!!!
Kawajai: Our second starter is out and our Chamber is complete. Rumor has it this is the position in the match Lars Grier ASKED Kenny Drake for as a favor. Lars Grier is going to prove himself by running through every person in this chamber. He wants an indisputable victory should he win and to really shove it to his doubters! Amadeus and Lars are getting settled in for the long haul as the referee rings the bell!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Nick Angel: Our Chamber match is underway. The four men in their pods are watching intently as Lars Grier and Amadeus step out of the corners they’re standing in in the ring. These two are being cautious as they get to moving, keeping their eyes on the weapon in their opponent’s hands. Amadeus is perhaps the more confident of the two as they circle each other. He’s swinging a portion of that chain around and around above his head. The full length of that chain is crazy, Lars Grier is definitely at a disadvantage due to how much of a long distance weapon Amadeus’ is, meanwhile Lars Grier has to get in close and be right in front of Amadeus to nail him with that crowbar. It’s going to be incredibly difficult to get into that range with that chain swinging in front of Amadeus, keeping Lars at bay. This is a sticky situation to be in for the opening moments of this match, but Lars Grier looks ready for it! Lars sees his opening and times his advance just right to get at Amadeus before he swung his chain again! Lars goes to bash Amadeus’ head in with the crowbar!
Kawajai: Oh, Amadeus takes a step back to avoid that blunt shot to the face! His chain is no longer swinging as the end he wasn’t holding just dropped down to the canvas! Lars steps on it so that Amadeus can’t hold it up! Hang on, it may have worked out in the end for Amadeus as he pulls on it, the chain slipping out from under Lars’ boot and making him lose balance! Lars almost falls over but catches himself! He lifts up his crowbar to bring it down for a strike but there goes Amadeus with a whip of the chain! Ouch! Right to Lars Grier’s side! The steel chain links meeting flesh is sure to hurt! Lars Grier staggers back and uses his free hand to clutch at his ribs. Lars Grier is in a huff and appears to be very angry! He knows that it’s time to kick it up a notch! Lars Grier runs at Amadeus again, Amadeus anticipates it and whips the chain down aiming for Lars Grier’s shoulder blade!
Nick Angel: Lars Grier sashays to the side and then gets back to it with attempting that crowbar shot! Amadeus stalls his efforts by swinging the chain and aiming low at the legs this time! Lars Grier is quick enough to jump just in time – BUT OH NO! Amadeus takes the hand that was gripping the chain and swings it upward as Lars was landing down, rocking him with a steel chain wrapped uppercut to the jaw! Lars Grier has got to be dazed! Only momentarily though! He was knocked loopy for just a second but then suddenly snapped out of it and then charged Amadeus; blasting him with a superman punch to the face! Amadeus is the one dazed here! He swings his chain again in desperation, catching Lars in the ribs once more! But the lightning quick reflexes of Lars Grier thwart it this time! He tucks his arm under the chains at the last second and is now in possession of the other end! Amadeus tries to pull back the chains and retrieve both ends of the weapon but Lars is pulling on it too! A tug of war is taking place over that chain and Lars Grier is winning! He yanks it hard, forcing Amadeus to lunge forward — AND RUN RIGHT INTO A SHOT FROM THAT CROWBAR OF LARS’! LARS GOT HIM RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES WITH THE SHAFT OF THE CROWBAR, DROPPING AMADEUS IMMEDIATELY.
Kawajai: That will get the blood flowing! Amadeus got busted open right away from that crowbar and Lars Grier is not stopping! It is payback time! He is beating Amadeus down with that crowbar, getting him in the arms, the legs and the chest as Amadeus is forced to cover up! Amadeus puts his foot up at swipes at the air, hoping to knock that crowbar out of Lars Grier’s hand but Lars avoids him, then holds the crowbar in both hands horizontally, walking around the body of Amadeus…AND THEN LEAPING DOWN ONTO HIM, DRIVING THE FLAT SIDE OF THE CROWBAR INTO AMADEUS’ THROAT! Brutal! Lars stays on top of Amadeus, keeping the crowbar pressed into his face while he holds him down for a pinfall! The referee goes to count:
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE……TWWWWWW —
Nick Angel: Kickout! Lars Grier gets up looking very frustrated! He stands up from that pin, TOSSING the crowbar into Amadeus’ face – I think that curved end nearly got him in the eye – and then he turns his sight to the titantron where the timer is going down! Lars is looking at the clock and is talking to himself, thinking up a plan and going over numbers. He’s figuring out how long it might take him to wrap this up! Lars is entering this match with a clear strategy, he’s trying to take these guys out one by one, he doesn’t want multiple bodies in the chamber at once for him to deal with. Knowing one of the men in the pods will be joining him soon is making him pick up the pace! He turns back to Amadeus to deal with him! Watch out! Amadeus again with use of that chain! Amadeus hit Lars in the face with a shotei and the chain was placed around his palm at the same time! Lars Grier falls back into the ropes following that, the bounce of the ropes making him rebound toward Amadeus…LARS GRIER INTERCEPTS AMADEUS’ SECOND SHOTEI ATTEMPT WITH A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE! Lars Grier gets up from that and lets out a roar! Amadeus gets to a vertical base rather gingerly and walks into his clutches! Flapjack by Lars Grier! Amadeus’ face goes up off of the canvas and as he favors his stomach Lars gets behind him for a pumphandle!
Kawajai: And he beautifully transitions it into a neckbreaker! Amadeus can’t even sit up in pain from being planted like that because Lars Grier immediately pushes him down for a lateral press and demands a count! He can’t even get a count of one from the referee before Amadeus moves out of place! Elbow to the side of the head by Lars! Lars keeps his arm near Amadeus’ head, placing his arm around Amadeus’ neck and then forcing him up! Lars is lifting Amadeus is up, having him upside down while keeping a perfect vertical stance AND THEN DROPPING HIM WITH A SUPLEX! Lars Grier maintains a hold over Amadeus and rolls over onto his feet with Amadeus still in his clutches…he places him between his knees and then throws him up into the air to hit him with a powerbomb! Lars Grier sit out as he did it, placing his hands on Amadeus’ chest after it was delivered to secure a pin once more!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Nick Angel: OH! Amadeus puts his legs up and claps them together while Lars’ head is in the way, boxing the ears of The Raven and making him break the pin! Lars Grier’s equilibrium is all off as he gets up with Amadeus rising up at the same time! Amadeus lackadaisically follows behind Lars Grier, somehow managing to keep his focus on the man as he goes and tackles him! Lars and Amadeus wrestle with each other on the mat for dominance as Amadeus hopes to gain control much to Lars’ annoyance! His plan to take out his opponent has been ruined as the five minutes for our two starting competitors is now almost expired! Six seconds remain as the crowd is counting down! Five now!
Crowd: FIVE! FOUR! THREE! TWO! ONE!
(BUZZ!: A spotlight shines down on one of the pods before flickering back and forth on all four of them, shifting to each pod more and more rapidly, and then abruptly stopping on….Keelan Cetinich!)
Kawajai: Keelan Cetinich is officially in play for this match and he is chomping at the bit to get out, tapping his feet frantically and holding the door as he waits for the crew on the outside to unlock his pod…AND HE’S OUT! The crowd cheers him on as he truly steps out into the Chamber environment with that boomerang in his hand! He wastes no time in climbing to the top rope, striking a quick pose before settling his focus on his opponents! Lars Grier and Amadeus finally have separated from one another and see him on that top rope! Lars and Amadeus are literally stepping over each other to get at the new addition to this match and knock him off! Lars is ahead of Amadeus in that race but Keelan makes him stop with a toss of his boomerang! Lars Grier ducks as it goes whizzing past him AND FLIES RIGHT INTO AMADEUS’ FACE! THE BOOMERANG DEFINITELY WON’T BE TURNING BACK TO KEELAN’S POSSESSION AFTER RUNNING INTO AMADEUS’ FACE LIKE THAT! THE SOUND IT MADE, THAT WAS SUCH A HARD HIT! THAT BOOMERANG SLASHED ACROSS HIS FACE AS YOU CAN SEE THAT BLOOD FROM HIS ALREADY OPENED WOUND SPATTERED A BIT ON THE CANVAS! Lars Grier stands up, takes a look at the scene behind him and thanks his lucky stars that he didn’t fall victim to that, but there is still paining went for him from up above! MISSILE DROPKICK BY KEELAN CETINICH TO TAKE HIM DOWN!
Nick Angel: Keelan Cetinich falls flat on his back and kips up! Lars Grier does his best to get onto his level once more after that surprising attack, running to him with a lariat but Keelan does a combat roll under it and then turns to face the back of Lars, pushing him into the ropes, using the momentum he just gave Lars to his favor as Lars bounces back into a waist lock and IS FLUNG ACROSS THE RING WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! Lars Grier went skidding across the canvas on his NECK! He turns over and starts to absent mindedly crawl into the same corner that a beaten up Amadeus has retreated into! MAN! Amadeus’ face is looking nasty right now, the gash just got opened up further as there is a huge patch of torn skin dead center in the face with blooding pouring down the bridge of his nose! Lars Grier realizes that Amadeus is behind him and decides to get away but the flustered Amadeus wants payback! He’s got Lars Grier stuck in that corner as he pulls him in for a rear naked choke! Amadeus has it locked in deep, he is trying to kill this man for what he has done to him! Lars Grier takes his fingers…HE’S PUSHING HIS FINGER NAILS INTO AMADEUS’ CUT AND IS DIGGING INTO IT! OH MY GOD THIS IS GRUESOME! AMADEUS YELLS IN PAIN BUT THE DAMAGE LARS HAS DONE TO HIM IS ENCOURAGEMENT FOR HIM TO GO DEEPER WITH THAT CHOKE! LARS GRIER STARTS THROWING HIS HEAD BACK, HEADBUTTING AMADEUS AS HARD AS HE CAN WITH THE BACK OF HIS SKULL AND GETTING THE BLOOD FLOWING EVEN WORSE! AMADEUS SHOUTS OUT OBSCENITIES LARS’ WAY AND REFUSES TO LET GO! THESE TWO ARE GOING AT IT IN THE CORNER AS KEELAN HAS AN IDEA FORMING!
Kawajai: Keelan Cetinich backs off into the corner opposite to them, builds up a full head of steam…AND THEN RUNS AT THEM, HOPPING OFF OF HIS FEET AND FLIPPING FORWARD FOR A SENTON ONTO BOTH MEN, CRASHING INTO LARS GRIER, PUSHING LARS RIGHT INTO AMADEUS WHO WAS SANDWICHED BETWEEN HIM AND THE TURNBUCKLES! Keelan Cetinich drags Lars Grier off AND OH, LOOK AT THE SIGHT OF AMADEUS! WE HAVE A CLEAR SHOT OF HIM NOT IN ACTION AS HIS FACE IS LOOKING LIKE A HORROR MOVE IN ONLY THE FIRST SEVEN MINUTES OF OUR MATCH UP! THOSE WEAPONS HAVE TAKEN A TOLL AND HE’S DEFINITELY NOT GOING TO BE MOBILE FOR A BIT! I don’t know if Lars will be as stationary as Amadeus is but Keelan is chancing that with a pin on Lars!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Nick Angel: Lars Grier kicks out, mushing Keelan’s face as he was getting his shoulder up! Keelan wipes his face after that and turns back to Lars who is looking for some space! Keelan chases after him but when he finally catches up to Lars and makes him face him – HE GETS A CROWBAR TO THE STOMACH FOR HIS TROUBLES! Keelan Cetinich doubles over in pain from that, dropping to his knees! He tries to compose himself and push himself back to his feet, but there goes Lars coming at him from his blindside with a knee lift! Keelan is spun around from the force and is then taken to the ground with a Russian legsweep by Lars – with assist from that crowbar …AND DIRECTED FOR A LANDING ONTO THAT STEEL CHAIN! LARS GRIER IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ALL OF THE WEAPONS NOW! He gets the chains from under Keelan’s body and places them on his face, BURYING KEELAN IN THOSE HEAVY STEEL CHAINS AS HE PRESSES ON TOP OF HIM FOR A COVER! KEELAN IS KICKING HIS FEET AND FIDGETING ABOUT TRYING TO GET OUT OF THIS UNCOMFORTABLE POSITION! KEELAN IS BEING PINNED WHILE SMOTHERED IN THOSE CHAINS TO THE DELIGHT OF LARS! LARS IS GOING TO WEAR KEELAN OUT AND EXHAUST HIM TO MAKE THE COVER EASIER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Kawajai: Keelan Cetinich powers out of it! Keelan pushes those rusty chains off of him and rolls onto his side! Lars Grier gets him a headlock! Lars Grier is jerking Keelan about like a ragdoll and trying to keep him contained with his one forearm while using the other arm to reach behind him! Uh oh! He’s got that crowbar behind his back! He’s putting the sharp, curved end of that crowbar up to Keelan Cetinich’s FACE! That’s the part used to jimmy open crates, metal doors – AND IS NOW BEING USED TO FISH HOOK THE MOUTH OF KEELAN CETINICH! THE CURVED END OF THE CROWBAR IS IN KEELAN’S MOUTH AND IS BEING USED TO PULL AT HIS CHEEK! LARS IS LOOKING TO TEAR UP KEELAN CETINICH’S FACE WITH THAT CROWBAR! KEELAN IS PUTTING HIS HANDS UP AND IS PRYING THAT CROWBAR AWAY BUT HE’S GOTTA BE CAREFUL NOT TO SLICE UP HIS MOUTH WHILE THE CROWBAR IS IN SUCH A SENSITIVE PLACE! THIS IS A NIGHTMARE!
Lars Grier: (w/o mic) I’m not such a joke now, am I? Huh, AM I? SPEAK UP KEELAN, YOU HAD SO MUCH SHIT TO SAY LAST WEEK! WHAT’S ALL OF THAT EXPERIENCE DOING FOR YOU NOW?
Nick Angel: Lars Grier is referencing the comments Keelan and others in the Chamber made to him earlier last week, treating him like the inexperienced one in their match up. Lars lashed out on that before on Voltage with what he did to Jamie O’Hara in that skybox and he’s stepping up to the plate show them again right now as he is PUNISHING Keelan! Keelan’s looking up into the eyes of a killer in Lars Grier and fear is showing in Keelan’s in response! Keelan’s eyes are turning elsewhere now and a puzzled Lars follows where they’re going! Lars drops the crowbar in realization! Amadeus, spaghetti legs and all has stood up and turns back to the corner he was resting at, springboarding off of the middle ropes! AMADEUS DIVES WITH A MOONSAULT ONTO BOTH LARS GRIER AND KEELAN CETINICH WHILE THEY’RE STILL GROUNDED! AMADEUS MAKES HIS PRESENCE FELT IN THIS MATCH ONCE MORE AND IS PUMMELING BOTH MEN WHILE THEY’RE DOWN! Lars has had enough of that and finds a way to shove him off! Amadeus is still too out of it from earlier to follow up on that moment of brilliance with the moonsault! He looks up at Lars Grier as he rises to his feet..DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO AMADEUS! Lars steps off of Amadeus and is met with a waiting Keelan who was finally given a reprieve and scrambled to capitalize; happening upon his boomerang! Keelan throws it, but again Lars evades it!
Kawajai: Lars Grier is really going to show him now! He’s got Keelan Cetinich by the arm, looking to go for a URANAGE ONTO HIS KNEE! AN EMPHATIC URANAGE ONTO KEELAN! Lars Grier remains in position with Keelan laid up over his knee, just savoring the delivery of the move…BUT THERE GOES THAT BOOMERANG SWISHING BACK TO WHERE IT CAME FROM, FLYING INTO THE CRANIUM OF THE UNSUSPECTING LARS! KEELAN’S WEAPON WORKING OUT FOR HIM EVEN WHEN HE IS NOT DIRECTLY USING IT! LARS GRIER IS STUNNED FROM THE BLOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD — BUT THEN FALLS OVER, ENDING UP FLAT ON HIS FACE AS HE LETS GO OF KEELAN WHO IS LEFT ON HIS OWN, BALLED UP AND HURTING! AMADEUS TRIES TO GET TO THEM SO HE CAN GO FOR A COVER BUT HE CAN’T EVEN BOTHER MOVING! THE MEN IN PODS ARE ALL WANTING TO GET IN AT THIS POINT, ALL THREE MEN ARE DOWN AND THE TIMER IS BACK TO BEING AT THE FIVE SECOND MARK!
Crowd: FIVE! FOUR! THREE! TWO! ONE!
(BUZZ!: The spotlight goes from pod to pod excluding the previous one that Keelan Cetinich was in, switching back and forth and speeding up after each cycle before reaching its climax and stopping on the pod of TLA! The selection ends up popping the crowd as chants of “Sexual Panther” start up amongst the audience.)
Nick Angel: TLA IS IN THIS MATCH! TLA struts out of that pod with confidence, holding up the chanclas for all eyes to see! Look at that grin on his face! He’s walking into the situation with all three men pretty much having destroyed each other already! This is looking like easy pickings for him as he slingshots himself over the ropes and gets into the ring! Keelan Cetinich is the first of the three to notice TLA while he stirs. Determination is on Keelan’s face! He stands up…AND HE MAKES HIMSELF INTO A BATTERING RAM TO GORE TLA, CHARGING HIM INTO A CORNER AND LAYING INTO HIM WITH FISTS! KEELAN WASN’T SUCH A SITTING DUCK AFTER ALL, HE’S WANTING TO CONTINUE WHERE HE AND TLA LEFT OFF ON VOLTAGE! Keelan is teeing off with those body shots! He looks for a straight right to the face BUT TLA WITH THOSE CHANCLAS, OH MY LORD! TLA SMACKED KEELAN ACROSS THE FACE WITH A NAIL EMBEDDED CHANCLA! TLA ATTEMPTING TO DISFIGURE KEELAN WITH THAT SHOT AS HE FALLS OVER AND CHECKS HIS OWN STATUS, HOLDING HIS FACE! Lars Grier is next up at bat! TLA and Lars Grier meet up in the center of the ring! TLA is hoping to hit him with the chanclas but Lars Grier blocks it! A chop to the chest by Grier! TLA chops him back, BUT WITH THAT CHANCLA AT HIS HAND, SNAGGING THE NAILS OF HIS WEAPON ON THE CHEST OF LARS BEFORE RIPPING IT AWAY! LARS VISIBLY CRINGED WHEN TLA PULLED THOSE CHANCLAS AWAY! BLOODIED MARKS ARE ON LARS’ CHEST AND LARS IS LOOKING TO GIVE HIM A RECEIPT FOR THAT! He’s got TLA by the throat! TLA IS THROWN AWAY WITH A CHOKESLAM! LARS GRIER BORROWING FROM THE ARSENAL OF THE MAN HE ONCE SLAYED IN APOCALYPSE!
Kawajai: AND A SPLASH AGAINST THE ROPES AFTER THAT AS TLA WAS BACK UP! TLA got greeted with heavy opposition early on and he’s met his heaviness in the big man of our match; Lars! Lars Grier looks to keep dishing it out on TLA but is distracted by Amadeus! Amadeus was being warned by doctors to head out of that chamber and get treatment but he’s opting to continue, barreling into Keelan with a shoulder block and now making his way to the two of them fighting at the ropes! Full speed ahead! WOAAAHHHH!!! Lars Grier steps to the side leaving Amadeus to collide with TLA, but even TLA keeps himself safe by having the awareness to bring Amadeus over his head with a back body drop to the outside! AMADEUS JUST HIT THE STEEL FLOOR OF OUR ELIMINATION CHAMBER AND IS SQUIRMING AS HIS BACK CONTORTS AGAINST IT! Lars Grier can’t help but to laugh at the sight but this match is no laughing matter! TLA with an enzuigiri to Lars Grier! Lars Grier hopes to shake that one off but is having trouble. TLA scales to the middle rope in the meantime and calls for his attention! TLA JUMPS OFF AND LANDS ON LARS’ SHOULDERS!
Nick Angel: TLA WITH A TORNADO DDT! TLA gets up after hitting that and beats his chest, capturing the excitement of the fans! TLA turns his attention to Keelan who is gathering his bearings! TLA makes a pass at Keelan and Keelan leapfrogs over him! TLA won’t be played though! PELE! THE CARTEL KICK TO KEELAN’S SPINE! Keelan holds in a yelp and sucks it up, HITTING TLA WITH A SUPERKICK IN RESPONSE! Keelan Cetinich leaves TLA checking his chin on the canvas as he walks over to the ropes, the ropes on the same side of the ring where Amadeus is at! Keelan Cetinich grips those ropes and launches himself onto the top rope, balancing on it and then diving off! THE DEATH DROP SENTON ONTO AMADEUS ON THAT STEEL FLOOR! KEELAN RISKING IT ALL FOR A BIG TIME MATCH JUST LIKE HE LOVES TO DO! If that pele hurt his back this aggravated it more for sure but no matter, Keelan Cetinich goes ahead and covers as the referee slides to the outside to count it!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRRR —
Kawajai: NO! AMADEUS SOMEHOW KICKS OUT! AMADEUS JUST DOES NOT KNOW WHEN TO QUIT! The man has not been well this whole match, his mind was more or less taken out of commission the moment Lars got him the way that he did with that crowbar. He’s been on autopilot ever since but is still willing to chug along. Keelan bangs his fist on that cold hard steel but something is calling for him!
Carlos Rosso: (w/o mic) HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! Not working out so well for you, isn’t it, Ostrich!? Guy’s got a mile wide and you still can’t send him out with one of your best moves? I’d have that whole chamber cleared by now! You hear me —
Nick Angel: OOOOHHHHH!!! KEELAN THROWS AMADEUS INTO CARLOS’ POD TO SEND A MESSAGE, STARTLING CARLOS! KEELAN IS MOUTHING OFF AT CARLOS NOW!
Keelan Cetinich: (w/o mic) Keep chatting shit, Carlos. You’re looking pretty scared right now even from the comfort of your pod. Why don’t you show me otherwise big man?
Carlos Rosso: (w/o mic) Scared? You’re saying that I’m SCARED? Oh hell no —
Kawajai: That set him off! Carlos Rosso is messing with the chains of the pod trying to get out early as the officials on the outside are doing what they can to keep him inside! Amadeus is fighting with Keelan! Amadeus just pushed Keelan into the Chamber wall! Keelan uses that to his advantage! He climbs up to the wall as Amadeus wants to chase after him! Keelan kicks him away though! Amadeus is standing on the chamber floor while Keelan is high up on the wall! Keelan falls off onto Amadeus! HURRICANRANA OFF OF THE WALL, THROWING AMADEUS INTO THE RING ROPES WITH INCREDIBLE VELOCITY! Amadeus can’t even breathe after meeting those ropes, and look at what’s going on in the ring! Swag shot by TLA! Lars’ head is on a swivel! He takes Lars by the head and goes to fling him out of the ring with them! Lars Grier goes running — BUT THEN CHANGES HIS FATE AS HE SHOOTS OUT OF THE MIDDLE ROPE LIKE A DART, RUNNING INTO THE CHOKED UP AMADEUS WITH THE RAVENBEAK SPEAR! LARS GRIER JUST CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY FOR HIMSELF AND IT PAYS OFF AS HE MOWS DOWN AMADEUS, RIPPING INTO HIM WITH ONE OF THE MOST SHARP LOOKING SPEARS I HAVE WITNESSED! AMADEUS GROANS FROM THE ACHES OF HIS FALL AS LARS HOOKS BOTH OF HIS LEGS! THE REF IS STILL OUTSIDE TOO! HE TAKES A BREAK FROM ADMONISHING CARLOS WHO IS STILL TRYING TO GET OUT BY COUNTING THE PIN!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Rebecca Sawyer: Amadeus has been eliminated!
Nick Angel: Our Interwire Champion is the first man out of the match! Amadeus is probably going to have to be ESCORTED out of the Extreme Elimination Chamber! It was only a matter of time after he got hit with that crowbar and got his face pushed in! Amadeus might be out of the match but he will remain in spirit due to his weapon still being apart of the match! TLA reaches over the ropes and wraps that chain around Lars’ neck, pulling back on it while at the same time putting his boot to Lars’ back! Stretching and choking him out! At the same time look at Carlos! Carlos is in a shouting match with Keelan! Keelan is egging him on to come out! Carlos puts a finger up to tell Keelan to halt and then starts examining the pod! The heck is he doing….he’s rubbing this one spot of the chamber in particular and rears back his fist…..CARLOS PUNCHES THE TARGETED SPOT OF THE POD AS THE GLASS BREAKS APART IN ONE BLOW! CARLOS JUST BROKE FREE OFF A SINGLE FIST! CARLOS IS OUT OF HIS POD AND THE TIME FOR HIS ENTRANCE HASN’T EVEN ARRIVED YET! HE’S LOOKING AT THAT GAUNTLET ON HIS HAND, SQUEEZING HIS HAND, MAKING A FIST AGAIN AND AGAIN AND HE’S SMILING AT THE SIGHT! THE POWER THOSE THINGS PUT BEHIND HIS PUNCHES ARE TREMENDOUS!
Carlos Rosso: (w/o mic) Fucking love this! Let’s see how scared I look now —
Kawajai: CARLOS JUST DECKED KEELAN AND KEELAN DAMN NEAR WENT FLYING BACK! Carlos turns to Lars who is being choked out…THERE GOES SOMETHING FOR HIM! LARS GRIER MAY HAVE BEEN KNOCKED OUT THERE! TLA HAS TO LET GO OF THE CHAIN BECAUSE OF LARS SUDDENLY TURNING TO DEADWEIGHT! Carlos kicks both of their bodies for good measure and then looks into the ring at the only man besides himself still standing: TLA! Carlos has literally broke into this match and is trying to take over AND TLA IS THE LAST LINE OF DEFENSE! The referee is looking at Carlos Rosso during this staredown and is in awe! He shouldn’t even be here! The balls of this grizzled veteran! Officials around ringside know they can’t get Carlos back into that pod and so the timer is simply resetting! Carlos is the fifth and our World Heavyweight Champion has just been made the last entrant by default. Carlos Rosso gets into the ring — TLA AMBUSHES HIM WITH THE CHANCLAS! NAILS TO THE FACE!
Nick Angel: CARLOS ROSSO PUTS HIS GAUNTLET UP TO PROTECT HIMSELF! WOAHHH!!! LOOK AT THE NAILS EMBEDDED IN THE CHANCLAS! THEY BENT UP FROM THE HARD EXTERIOR OF THOSE GAUNTLETS! The nails are no longer of use to TLA as Carlos Rosso then hits him with a spinning backfist! TLA’s head whipped back violently from that hit! A JAB TO THE FACE BY CARLOS FOLLOWS! CARLOS IS PIECING HIM UP WITH THOSE GAUNTLETS! YOU CAN FEEL THE HEAVINESS OF THE BLOWS! I have not seen strikes like this in my life! Who gave a maniac like Carlos those things!? His already dangerous strikes are now deathly! Carlos is having fun with those gauntlets. He’s dancing around, shuffling between hits, experimenting with some southpaw shots now! He winds back for one more big punch but it doesn’t land on TLA! Carlos doesn’t know what’s coming! PANTHERPLEX! TLA looks to turn Carlos Rosso over for a quick cover!
Referee: ONNNN —
Kawajai: Nope! Not even close! It’s no big deal to TLA though! Carlos Rosso kicks out and TLA immediately goes to grab him by the tights, picking him up off of the canvas and then throwing him SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! TLA OVERSHOT THE THROW TOO AND THE CROWN OF CARLOS’ HEAD HIT THE POD THAT WAS BEHIND IT! CARLOS THANKFULLY HAD THE GAUNTLET PROTECTING THE TOP OF HIS HEAD AT THE LAST SECOND, CRACKING THE POD WITH THEIR IMPACT! Carlos gets out of that predicament and walks back into TLA, who puts him on his shoulders and DRILLS HIM WITH A PANTERA DRIVER SIXTY NINE! TLA plans on following that up! He’s pointing at the top turnbuckle! He just mouthed something…I think he was saying he was “feeling froggy”. We all know what the means. TLA is aiming for that frog splash variation known as the “Sexual Splash”! He’s on the top rope for it…BUT OOOHHH MAAANNN!!! TLA TASTES THAT BOOMERANG NOW! IT JUST BOPPED HIM IN THE FACE, VEERING RIGHT PAST HIM AFTERWARD AND RETURNING TO THE MAN WHO THREW IT: KEELAN! KEELAN CETINICH IS UP AND IS CRACKING HIS NECK, PREPPING FOR WHAT IS NEXT! Keelan throws that boomerang down and gets ready to get to business!
Nick Angel: Keelan Cetinich sprintS off and then HOPS ONTO THE TOP ROPE WITH NO CLIMBING NEEDED, JUST PURE VERTICAL LEAP NEEDED TO JOIN TLA THERE! AMAZING! Keelan is duking it out with TLA and is getting the better of him! He puts his hands at TLA’s sides and is getting him adjusted….HOLD ON! LARS GRIER LEAPS UP ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE RIGHT BEHIND KEELAN CETINICH, WHERE DID HE COME FROM!? He clubs Keelan in the back and then has him by the waist! No, no, don’t tell me! LARS GRIER IS LOOKING TO MAKE THINGS INTERESTING! HE FALLS BACK! GERMAN SUPLEX ONTO KEELAN WHO TAKES TLA WITH HIM WITH A RELEASE BELLY TO BELLY! TOWER OF DOOM OFF OF THE TOP ROPE WITH A JUST AWOKEN CARLOS ROSSO GETTING CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE WITH THE THREE OF THEM! THAT WHOLE CHAIN REACTION WAS JUST CREATED BY LARS, TAKING OUT EVERY ACTIVE MEMBER IN THE MATCH! THE RING HAS TURNED INTO A CAR CRASH WITH TWISTED UP BODIES ALL AROUND! JAMIE O’HARA IS LOOKING AT THAT CLOCK, BEGGING FOR IT TO GO FASTER!
Kawajai: The four of them won’t be down for long, they’re all starting to pick up the pieces from that moment and are getting up. Carlos Rosso and Lars Grier bump into each other while picking themselves and immediately snap out of their hazes to react! Carlos is the quicker of the two, simply sticking out two fingers and poking Lars Grier in the eyes! Those aren’t even Carlos’ fingers that is steel mesh, scraping, pushing into Lars’ eyes! The Raven was weakened and that gives Carloss all he needs for a fast one! BRRRRAAAAAAAIIIIINNNBBBBBBUSSSSTTTTTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! THE BRAINBUSTER DELIVERED BY CARLOS!!! CARLOS ROSSO IS GOING FOR THE COVER!
Referee: ONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE —
Kawajai: Lars Grier kicks out! BUT OH MY GOD! TLA DOG PILES ONTO CARLOS ROSSO’S BACK! HE’S GOT THE CHANCLA! TLA IS GRINDING THE BENT UP NAILS OF THAT CHANCLA ON CARLOS’ HEAD, GOING AGAINST HIS SCALP! TLA IS NOT DONE WITH CARLOS AFTER HE TRIED TO STEP TO HIM! TLA CAPS IT OFF BY BEATING CARLOS UPSIDE THE HEAD WITH ONE MORE CHANCLA SHOT! We can see blood dripping out of Carlos’ hair and going down his forehead, he got messed up there! It’s only fair though as the side of TLA’s face is cut up from those punches with the gauntlets! These two are on their knees and are boxing with one another! TLA takes those punches from the gauntlets having learned to brace himself, and returns the favor with some bare knuckle punches of his own! Keelan Cetinich joins them! Coming into the frame with roundhouses to both men! Shoot, he got greedy! He goes for a second round of that but TLA dropped and rolled out of the way! Keelan is facing his old enemy Carlos! EXPLODEEERRRRRRRRR!!!! CARLOS IS TOSSING PEOPLE LEFT AND RIGHT! Carlos is laying on his back and smiling, relishing in what he just did…then the moment of “I just messed up” sets in! TLA made his way back to the top rope! SEXXXXUAAAAALLL SPPPLLASSSSHHHH!!! SEXUAL SPLASH ON CARLOS ROSSO! YOU CAN SEE THE WIND GETTING KNOCKED OUT OF CARLOS AS HE GASPS AND LETS OUT OF ALL OF THE AIR IN HIS LUNGS!
Nick Angel: TLA got himself with that too but it comes with the territory of going high risk! TLA gets up off of the body of Carlos and is limping away for some distance. He sees Carlos is willing himself up to his feet from that and is coughing and sucking air. The two are moving in unison with one another, a bit too worn out too turn to each other – BUT ALSO TOO TIRED TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY! HERE. COMES. LAAAARRRRRSSSSSSSSS!!!! RAVEEEEENNNBEEEEAAAAKKKKK!!! LARS WITH THE DOUBLE SPEAR, SCOOPING UP BOTH CARLOS AND TLA IN ONE GO!!!! A TWO FOR ONE SPECIAL AND HE DIDN’T MISS A BEAT, HE EXECUTED THE MANEUVER JUST AS WELL HE WOULD ON A SINGLE MAN! LARS GRIER SHOULD CAPITALIZE BUT HE CAN’T AS HE ENDS UP BECOMING COMPLACENT IN RESTING ON THE MAT AFTERWARD! This Chamber is beating people down and making every move draining! Keelan is another one who is an example of that but he musters up enough to crawl onto Carlos Rosso! We’ve got a cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Kawajai:…CARLOS ROSSO KICKS OUT! THE FOUR MEN HAVE WEATHERED THE STORM AND HAVE MADE IT THROUGH THIS PHASE TO GET TO OUR FINAL ENTRANT! WE ARE COUNTING DOWN UNTIL THE LAST POD IS GOING TO OPEN, AND WE ALL KNOW WHO IT IS!
(BUZZ!: No spectacle is needed, the lights dim and the spotlight shines down upon Jamie O’Hara’s pod straight away to indicate his addition into the match. The officials on the outside get to work on unchaining his door while he slings the sledgehammer over his shoulder.)
Kawajai: Jamie O’Hara, our World Heavyweight Champion, may finally defend his title! Jamie O’Hara steps out of the pod with his sledgehammer and slowly walks around the Chamber floor, surveying the carnage in the ring. It’s very fitting that Jamie be the final entrant. These men endured so many trials to make it to this point and now we have the man they’ve been gunning after, Jamie, coming in fresh and having plotted out a gameplan while watching them this whole time! Jame O’Hara steps into the ring, oh Jamie is about to enjoy this…..SLEDGEHAMMER SHOT TO LARS GRIER! JAMIE O’HARA PUTTING HIS ALL BEHIND THAT SLEDGEHAMMER AS RETRIBUTION FOR THAT SPEAR IN THE SKYBOX! Lars putting his hands up to prepare himself but there wasn’t much of a way to block a shot like that to the face! And right after him is Keelan Cetinich who is LEVELED with a sledgehammer shot to the midsection! He didn’t even stand a chance there! He convulses on the mat, experiencing the awful sensation of that sledgehammer….AND CARLOS ROSSO IS LINED UP NEXT! SLEDGEHAMMER HIT TO THE CHEST! They’re all just unknowingly setting themselves up! TLA is next, having just gotten up from that Ravenbeak and Jamie’s whole face lit up! His biggest enemy in this match is in front of him! TLA stands up and sees Jamie, knowing what is next!
Nick Angel: Jamie O’Hara stands in the center of the ring, holding the base of that sledgehammer with both hands and begins spinning around and around with it, picking up speed with each rotation, not letting up for a second! That sledgehammer is slowly slipping out of his hands each time he circles around, he still decides to spin once more — BEFORE LETTING IT GO AND HAVING THAT HAMMER FLY! THE SLEDGEHAMMER JUST WHIRLED IN THE AIR AND CRACKED TLA IN THE RIBS, OH MY GOD! TLA spits up, everything just got knocked out of him! If it wasn’t for the set of ropes behind him I don’t even think he would be standing! Jamie O’Hara rushes him after that! CLOTHESLINE OVER THE ROPES, TAKING THEM TO THE OUTSIDE WITH THE STEEL! Jamie bumped against that hard grating and is feeling it himself, that had to have hurt the still sensitive injuries hidden under those bandages! It’s nothing more than a passing flinch to him though as he’s got TLA in a thesz press and is going to work! TLA gets him a body scissors though and switches it up on him, now he’s the one throwing punches! They’re trading off between each other, rolling around on the chamber floor until they end up running into the wall and knocking their heads up against it!
Kawajai: The two of them hold their heads and race to their feet! DROPKICKS IN STEREO, CANCELLING EACH OTHER OUT! Neither man got to hit each other and so they fall onto the ground with no reward for their pain! As this is going on Lars is the first to get up from the three still in the ring! His blue face paint has become chipped and faded, giving way to the red that almost everyone else has started to wear in this match! He’s walking around the ring and what does he see? His weapon of choice: the crowbar! It was kicked around into the corner from all of the action going on but with things more at ease he can finally reach for it! Lars Grier holds that crowbar with evil intentions, seeing Carlos Rosso and restraining him with that crowbar in his hand! Carlos struggles but it will be no good! Lars Grier is scratching his head with that crowbar, trying to pry open the SKULL of Carlos Rosso! CARLOS ROSSO IS IN A PANIC AS HE SHOUTS IN AGONY, MOVING AROUND TO TRY AND MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR LARS!
Nick Angel: Wha…WHAT, IT’S KEELAN CETINICH! And he’s got his weapon back too! Lars Grier lets go of the task at hand and watches as Keelan Cetinich throws that boomerang his way, a weapon which he has grown to hate throughout this match! Lars Grier dodges it but he is not out of the woods yet, here it comes back around…AND LARS GRIER CATCHES IT IN HIS HAND! Lars Grier learned from last time and knew to keep eyes in the back of his head! Lars Grier has that boomerang of Keelan’s….AND HE SNAPS IT IN HALF WITH HIS HANDS! THAT BOOMERANG JUST GOT BROKEN OUT OF PURE STRENGTH FROM LARS! That boomerang was broken in two and then got thrown into Keelan’s face! Lars Grier looks real happy with himself, he has wanted to do that all match! It’s rare to see Lars laugh like this! Keelan is not having that disrespect though! FLYING FOREARM INTO LARS GRIER!
Kawajai: Back to the outside of the ring TLA is being lifted up for a powerbomb…hang on! TLA ROLLS DOWN JAMIE’S BACK AND COUNTERS WITH A YOSHI TONIC! He wants to stack Jamie up for a pin but before the referee heads out, Jamie kicks out! As Jamie shifts out of that, TLA GOES TO GET HIM IN THE CROSSED PATHS! THE CROSS ARMBREAKER IS BEING APPLIED ON THE OUTSIDE! Jamie is smart to turn over and fold TLA up, ruining the submission as TLA can no longer extend the arm! Jamie O’Hara is deadlifting TLA on the outside….AND THEN POWERBOMBING HIM INTO THE CHAMBER WALL, OUCH! TLA bounces off of that wall and runs directly into a slingblade! In the ring Keelan Cetinich has Lars Grier in a crossface and he’s bridging it, applying the move that he calls the Death Sentence! Lars Grier’s neck is being cranked back but IT IS BROKEN UP BY CARLOS ROSSO COMING IN AND SMASHING HIS SHINGUARD INTO KEELAN’S FACE! JESUS! CARLOS COMING IN JUST TO SPITE KEELAN!
Nick Angel: Back on the outside, Jamie O’Hara just went and hit TLA with a bicycle knee! TLA going through a seesaw battle to keep himself up, leaning forward on his feet…Jamie decides to leave him be and go back into the ring, but TLA grabs his arm! YOU’RE DONE! THE REVERSE BULLDOG ONTO THE OUTSIDE! Jamie is grabbing at those bandages! He gets up gingerly with TLA on his nail — AND THEN TLA GOES COMING AT JAMIE O’HARA WITH A VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT THAT TAKES BOTH OF THEM OVER THE ROPES AND BACK INTO THE RING! All five competitors have made it in! And Carlos slides into view to plant TLA with a DDT! He gets at Jamie O’Hara next while he’s still shaking off that uppercut! A T-BONE! Carlos sits up after that and claps his hands….SNAPMARE BY LARS GRIER! Carlos Rosso falls back and Keelan Cetinich jumps to the outside, BEFORE SPRINGBOARDING BACK INTO THE INSIDE WITH A 450 SPLASH ONTO CARLOS ROSSO! KEELAN CETINICH HOOKS THE LEGS!
Refere: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE —
Kawajai: Carlos bonks Keelan on the head with his gauntlets to create a break for that pinfall! Keelan feels that lump on his head and it’s not stopping there! Lars Grier walks over Carlos’ body, not caring if he’d break any ribs as he heads over to Keelan! BODYSLAM! Lars Grier then sees Jamie O’Hara…POWERSLAMING JAMIE ONTO KEELAN! We got a stack of Aussies in the center of the ring as Lars Grier steps onto the middle rope!
Nick Angel: Just….why, Kawa?
Kawajai: What else would you call it, Nick? Forget it, focus on Lars! WOAH! TLA THROWS THE CHANCLA AT LARS’ FACE TO STUN HIM! THE BENDED UP NAILS GOT LARS IN THE FACE! Lars Grier covers his head as TLA springboards off of the ropes next to Lars’ turnbuckle, changes directions…HURRICANRANA, FLINGING LARS GRIER ONTO THE PILED UP KEELAN AND JAMIE! Wait, Jamie had enough wherewithal to get out of dodge! KEELAN IS LEFT TO EXPERIENCE THAT ON HIS OWN! Lars Grier gets up with a jolt from that fall and walks into Jamie! TLA spots Carlos sitting up and goes after him! Carlos catching him with a front facelock to stop his plans! Lars Grier and Jamie O’Hara revisiting their beef from Voltage! Jamie O’Hara with an enzuigiri! Lars Grier drops his fist over Jamie’s head before he falls over! SWIPE TO THE FACE BY JAMIE IN RESPONSE! This is getting heated!
Nick Angel: AND LOOK WHAT’S BEHIND THEM! TLA IS LIFTING CARLOS OFF OF THE MAT WHILE CARLOS HAS THAT GRAPEVINED FACELOCK! Two separate fights are going down and all of the while Keelan Cetinich is sneaking by, climbing on the top rope; chain wrapped around his arm incase someone tries to stop him! Oh..OH, HE’S CLIMBING TO THE TOP OF THE POD BEHIND IT, KEELAN CETINICH HAS MADE IT ALL OF THE WAY TO THE TOP OF POD AND IS RESTING THERE WATCHING ALL OF THIS GO DOWN! HE’S GOT A FRONT ROW SEAT FOR THE ACTION! TLA is walking around with Carlos latched onto him! Carlos lets go of the grapevine and is walking around….TLA PUSHES HIM INTO LARS AS LARS AND JAMIE WERE IN MID LOCK UP! Lars Grier and Carlos now just broke off and are going at it! TLA and Jamie are duking it out yet again, unable to stay away from each other! TLA GETS THROWN ACROSS THE RING WITH THE HIGH ANGLE GERMAN! TLA rolls off of his shoulder and springs to his feet, gutting it out and reaching for that sledgehammer Jamie left on the ground! SHOT TO THE FACE OF JAMIE AS PAYBACK! LARS GRIER WITH THE RAVENBEAK TO CARLOS ROSSO….. TO THE OUTSIDE! LARS WASN’T EXPECTING FOR CARLOS TO SPILL OUTSIDE FROM THAT SO HE GOT IT JUST AS BAD!
Kawajai: Keelan Cetinich is up there cringing as he shouts at the victims of both scenes! TLA simply flips Keelan the bird and then goes back to Jamie O’Hara, who headbutts him with his bloodied skull as their war rages on, but Lars Grier brings his head up from that spear and looks up at Keelan steaming mad! Lars Grier can not stand being mocked anymore, he has made that blatantly clear! Lars rises to his feet, keeping his eyes glued onto the seated Keelan on top of that pod. Keelan now lifts himself up, using the cage wall behind him to assist him in that effort, and he is now standing on top of that pod looking down at Lars below! Keelan looks at his chain, before telling Lars to BRING IT!! AND HERE WE GO, NICK! LARS IS BEGINNING TO CLIMB UP THE CORNER! Lars is… no, WAIT!! CARLOS PULLS LARS BACK BEFORE HE COULD MAKE ANY FURTHER ATTEMPT AT CLIMBING UP! Carlos with a kick to the sternum to The Raven… WHAT’S HE GOT IN MIND HERE?! OH MY GOD, KAWA! HE’S GOT LARS’ HEAD BETWEEN HIS LEGS! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE RED SPIKE ON THE METAL FLOORING THERE! OH NO! THIS MIGHT BREAK LARS’ NECK! CARLOS LIIIIFTS THE BIG MAN UP AND……….. OHHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYY GOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!
Nick Angel: JESUS CHRIST!!!!! SOMEBODY GET SOME DOCTORS OUT HERE RIGHT NOW! CARLOS ROSSO WITH THE RED SPIKE THROUGH THAT STEEL GRATING AND BOTH MEN FALL THROUGH THE FLOOR!!!! THE GRATING LITERALLY JUST CAVED IN AS CARLOS AND LARS WENT CRASHING DOWN BELOW! THEY PRACTICALLY FELL OUT OF THE CHAMBER AND FELL INTO THE RINGSIDE AREA! AFTER ALL OF THE ABUSE THAT GRATING TOOK THROUGHOUT THIS EVENT, I DON’T KNOW IF SOME SCREWS WENT LOOSE, I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS THE LITERAL FORCE OF THE RED SPIKE, BUT IT GAVE IN AND LARS JUST WENT HEAD FIRST ALL THE WAY DOWN WITH CARLOS BEHIND HIM! KEELAN SITS UP ON TOP OF THAT POD IN PURE SHOCK, WHILE TLA AND JAMIE AREN’T EVEN PAYING IT ANY MIND! TLA IS TOO BUSY TRYING TO GOUGE JAMIE’S EYES OUT WHILE JAMIE BITES AT HIS HANDS! THESE TWO ARE IN THE ZONE AS THEY ARE OBSESSED WITH NOTHING BUT EACH OTHER! SOMEONE NEEDS TO CARE ABOUT LARS AND CARLOS THOUGH! WE MIGHT NEED SOME EMT’S IN THAT CHAMBER – OR UNDER IT – ARE LARS AND CARLOS EVEN ALIVE?
Kawajai: Something is MOVING! The steel grating that fell down has just been pushed up! One of them is up….AND IT’S CARLOS! CARLOS ROSSO POKES HIS HEAD OUT AS HE IS DRAGGING HIMSELF BACK INTO THE CHAMBER, WITH LARS IN HIS HANDS AS HE BRINGS THE UNCONSCIOUS BODY WITH HIM! LARS’ EYES ARE COMPLETELY SHUT AND HE’S ENTIRELY DEADWEIGHT! CARLOS HEEEEAAAAAVVVEESSSS HIM BACK INTO THE CHAMBER AND TURNS HIM OVER! THE ARM IS DRAPED OVER THE CHEST! THE REFEREE GOES OUT TO COUNT FOR A COVER, NARROWLY AVOIDING THAT HOLE IN THE FLOOR AS HE GETS HIMSELF IN A DECENT POSITION!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Rebecca Sawyer: Lars Grier has been eliminated!
Kawajai: And The Raven is GONE!!! That’s going to be a tough pill to swallow for Lars, but he put on one HELL of a performance! Carlos Rosso is sitting up next to the downed body of Lars, still reeling from falling through the steel flooring just a few moments ago! He is… HEY WAIT A MINUTE! KEELAN HAS DROPPED DOWN FROM THE POD… RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE OF CARLOS! KEELAN STILL WITH THAT CHAIN WRAPPED AROUND HIS ARM, BUT WHAT’S HE GOT IN MIND NOW?!
Nick Angel: Keelan unwraps the chain from around his arm and begins to tie a double knot in it… wait he’s… WAIT! HE’S MAKING A NOOSE?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! HE PUTS CARLOS’ HEAD INTO THE OPENING OF THAT CHAIN. HIS HEAD ALMOST PERFECTLY FITS THROUGH THE HOLE! Keelan makes a beeline back up the corner to the pod. Meanwhile, TLA and Jamie are still going at it in the opposite corner trading continuous blows. I don’t even think they’re aware that Lars is eliminated… I DON’T EVEN THINK THEY’RE AWARE OF WHAT’S GOING ON BEHIND THEM RIGHT NOW!! KEELAN HAS THE OTHER END OF THAT CHAIN TIED UP TO THE WALL BEHIND HIM, AND WITH THE LOOSE BITS HE BEGINS TO PULL CARLOS UP. JESUS I CANNOT WATCH THIS!!!
Kawajai: THIS IS LIKE WHEN KENNY DRAKE HUNG KEELAN AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION 10! CARLOS IS BEING PULLED UP INTO THE AIR AND TOWARDS THE POD, AND HE IS WRIGGLING IN MID-AIR TRYING TO GRASP FOR AIR! KEELAN PULLS CARLOS ON TOP OF THE POD, AND HE LOOKS LIFELESS RIGHT NOW! KEELAN RELIEVES THE NOOSE FROM AROUND CARLO’S HEAD BEFORE WRAPPING HIS ARM UNDER HIS NECK. KEELAN SLOWLY LIFTS CARLOS UP… OH NO… OH NO!!!!! KEELAN LEAPS OFF THE POD……………. KILLER-KO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE JUMPING CUTTER OFF THE POD AND BOTH MEN GO CRASHING DOWN INTO THE RING BELOW! KEELAN ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE AND CARLOS IS DONE, BUT NOBODY IS THERE FOR THE COVER!
Nick Angel: Hold up, Kawa! Back on the other side of the ring now… TLA WITH A STIFF ELBOW TO THE SIDE OF JAMIE’S HEAD, FOLLOWED BY A KNEE TO THE GUT… OH MY GOD TLA IS SETTING THE CHAMPION UP FOR WHAT MIGHT BE THE END! TLA IS GOING FOR IT… MEEEEXXXXIICCCAAANN DDEEESSSTTRRROOOYYYERRRR!!!! IT CONNECTS! TLA SLOWLY CRAWLS TO THE COVER… BUT HOLD ON! JAMIE IS SLOWLY ROLLING TOWARDS CARLOS BEFORE GOING UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE! TLA COULDN’T GET TO JAMIE IN TIME! JAMIE IS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, AVOIDING WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A BIG LOSS! TLA sits up on his knees, before slamming his hands down on the mat. He looks down at the comatose state of Carlos, before double-taking… WAIT, HE’S PINNING CARLOS INSTEAD?! HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Rebecca Sawyer: Carlos Rosso has been eliminated!
Nick Angel: We are down to THREE MEN NOW! TLA stands up in the center of the ring, while Keelan and Jamie stand up at the ropes on the outside. LADIES AND GENTLEMAN WE GOT A MEXICAN STAND OFF RIGHT NOW AND THE CROWD HERE ARE LOVING IT! Jamie and Keelan enter the ring at the same time, and all three men are now going face to face! This is going to be AMAZING!
Kawajai: These might be the three best Voltage has to offer, and… HOLD ON A MINUTE! JAMIE AND KEELAN SHARE A GLANCE, BEFORE BOTH STANDING TOGETHER?! WHAT THE HELL?!
Nick Angel: An Australian alliance. Can’t trust ‘em.
Kawajai: AND KEELAN AND JAMIE BEGIN TO PUMMEL LEFTS AND RIGHTS INTO TLA AND TLA IS FORCED BACK AGAINST THE ROPES! Both men back off and the crowd react in a mixed response. Jamie looks towards Keelan for an idea and–
Nick Angel: SUUUUUUPERKICK BY KEELAN TO JAMIE!!! THE CHAMPION IS FLOORED! KEELAN TURNS TO TLA AND… SWAG SHOT!!! SWAG SHOT!!! THE PIMP SLAP BY KEELAN SENDS THE MAN COLLAPSING INTO THE SECOND ROPE! TLA wasting no time as he runs the ropes and comes rebounding back towards Keelan for the 305!!!
Kawajai: WAIT, NO!!! JAMIE WITH A RUNNING HIGH KNEE TO THE SIDE OF TLA’S HEAD ON HIS WAY TOWARDS KEELAN! JAMIE DOESN’T EVEN MISS A BEAT AS HE SHIFTS HIS LEG UP FOR A BICYCLE KNEE! KEELAN STAGGERS AROUND AFTER THAT AS WITH WHAT LITTLE SENSE HE HAS LEFT HE LOOKS AROUND FOR ANY WEAPON ON STANDBY – CROWBAR! WE’RE BACK IN ACTION! Keelan rushes forward towards Jamie and SWINGS THAT CROWBAR RIGHT BESIDE JAMIE’S HEAD! JESUS, HE… NO, WAIT! JAMIE DUCKS THE SWING! JAMIE SPINS KEELAN BACK AROUND AND LIFTS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! FIREMAN’S CARRY POSITION! JAMIE SPINS HIM OFF… DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER!! KING’S REGNUM!! IT’S OVER FOR KEELAN AS JAMIE ROLLS HIM OFF OF HIS KNEES AND TO A COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Nick Angel: It’s… it’s… KEELAN KICKS OUT?! Jamie is in shock, but he’s not going to let the kickout get into his head! Jamie rolls to his feet and turns to pick up that crowbar in the middle of the ring.
Kawajai: OH JESUS!!! TLA OUT OF NOWHERE!! HE KNOCKS JAMIE IN THE HEAD WITH THAT SLEDGEHAMMER! TLA ONCE AGAIN JUST USED JAMIE’S OWN WEAPON AGAINST HIM, AND JAMIE COLLAPSES! SHOULDERS ARE ON THE MAT, AND HE IS OUT! TLA DROPS TO A COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Kawajai: SHOULDER OFF THE MAT, JAMIE O’HARA KICKS OUT AGAIN! TLA sits up in pain, but he knows he must continue to keep digging in order to FINALLY become what every single EAW fan has wanted TLA to become ALL YEAR! TLA rises to his feet… KEELAN DROPS TLA WITH A DDT!! WHERE’D HE COME FROM?! TLA IS DOWN, AND KEELAN ROLLS UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE BEFORE CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE! Keelan slowly balances himself up… but he slowly turns around?! HE’S GOING UP TO THE TOP OF THE POD AGAIN?! HOLD UP! THE CHAMPION IS STRUGGLING BACK TO HIS FEET AND HE RUNS TOWARDS THE CORNER! He grabs Keelan around his ankles to prevent him from jumping up onto the pod, before climbing to the second rope to try and pull him down to the canvas! AND TLA IS BACK UP NOW! TLA PLACES HIS HEAD IN BETWEEN JAMIE’S LEGS!! HE’S GOT JAMIE IN THE ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION! KEELAN INSTANTLY JUMPS ON TOP OF THE POD, FACING AWAY FROM THE RING! HE CORKSCREWS IN MID-AIR… DEATH FROM ABOVE ON TOP OF JAMIE AND TLA FALLS BACK FOR THE ELECTRIC CHAIR!! WHAT A GOD DAMNED SEQUENCE!!!
Nick Angel: LOOK AT THIS… TLA IS STILL ON HIS FEET!! BOTH AUSTRALIANS ARE DOWN AND TLA BACKS HIMSELF INTO A CORNER, READY TO STRIKE THE FIRST MAN THAT GETS TO THEIR FEET! IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S GOING TO BE KEELAN! KEELAN IS SLOWLY LIFTING HIMSELF UP TO A VERTICAL BASE. TLA MOTIONS FORWARD TO GRAB KEELAN FROM AROUND HIS NECK— …….CROWBAR TO THE CHEST OF TLA!!! THE HOOKED PART OF THAT CROWBAR JUST STABBED TLA RIGHT IN THE CHEST! BLOOD BEGINS TO DRIP FROM A COUPLE OF OPEN CUTS! KEELAN LIFTS TLA UP ONTO HIS SHOULDER. THIS IS IT… DEEEEAADDD BYYYYYY DAAAAAYLLLIIIGGGHHTTT!!! THE FIREMAN’S CARRY STUNNER TO TLA AND THIS ONE IS ALL OVER FOR TLA!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Rebecca Sawyer: TLA has been eliminated!
Kawajai: YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME! TLA HAS BEEN ELIMINATED?!
Nick Angel: WE’RE DOWN TO TWO MEN – THE TWO AUSTRALIANS! KEELAN CETINICH, JAMIE O’HARA! KEELAN IS TAKING DEEP BREATHS RIGHT NOW AS HE SITS UP BESIDES THE DOWNED TLA. KEELAN SEES JAMIE BEGINNING TO STIR ON THE FLOOR. LOOK AT THE LOOK ON KEELAN’S FACE… HE IS DETERMINED! READY! HE WANTS TO BE THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! Keelan Cetinich jumps to his feet and quickly moves over towards the champion! Keelan lifts him up by his head and—
Kawajai: JAMIE!!! JAMIE!!! HE’S GOT THE WRISTLOCK! SPINS KEELAN AROUND… KIIIIINGGGSSLLLAAAAYYYERRRR!!!!
Nick Angel: NOOOOOOOO!! KEELAN DUCKS! JAMIE STUMBLES INTO THE ROPES AND SPINS AROUND TOWARDS KEELAN……. KILLER-KO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOOOOOOOOO!!! JAMIE PUSHES KEELAN AWAY IN MID AIR BUT KEELAN LANDS ON HIS FEET! KEELAN RUNS BACK TOWARDS JAMIE… HOOOOOOOLY SHIT! IN EXCELSIS! IN EXCELSIS! IT’S OVER!!! JAMIE ROLLS ONTO THE SLUMPED BODY OF KEELAN AND WE HAVE A COVER DEAD CENTER IN THE RING!
Kawajai: JAMIE RETAINS! HE… NO!!!!!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! KEELAN GETS HIS SHOULDER UP JUST IN TIME!!! THIS IS UNREAL! JAMIE KEEPS HIMSELF FROM EXPLODING IN RAGE, AND AFTER A FEW MOMENTS HE GETS TO HIS FEET AND LIFTS KEELAN UP TO HIS! OH?! KEELAN WITH A JAWBREAKER!! HOW IS HE STILL CONSCIOUS?! KEELAN GRABS JAMIE BY THE THROAT. HE LIFTS JAMIE IN THE AIR… END IT!!! END IT!!! THE CHOKEHOLD STO ADOPTED FROM BRODY SPARKS!!! KEELAN DOESN’T RELEASE FROM THE THROAT THOUGH, AND INSTEAD LIFTS JAMIE UP ONCE MORE ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! IT’S OVER IF HE HITS THIS! KEELAN FLIPS JAMIE OFF…. DEAAAAAAAAAAAAAADDD BYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY DDDAAAAAAAAAAAYYLLIIIIIGGGHHTTT!!! LADIES AND GENTLEMAN WE HAVE A NEW EAW WORLD CHAMPION!!!!
Nick Angel: ….YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!!! JAMIE KICKS OUT WITH AUTHORITY! WE’RE NOT FINISHED HERE YET LADIES AND GENTS! KEELAN SLAMS HIS HANDS DOWN ON THE CANVAS ENRAGED! WHAT’S IT GOING TO TAKE TO HAVE KEELAN WALK OUT VICTORIOUS?! Keelan slowly lifts himself up and he limps over to the ropes. He’s exiting the ring? Where’s he going? He’s picking something up on the ground… it’s half of his boomerang?! Why would he want to use half of it?
Kawajai: I think Keelan must have forgotten it snapped in two earlier in the match! Keelan tosses the boomerang away in frustration before kicking the pod next to him. He shakes his head before entering the ring again and walking over to Jamie. OHHHHH!!! COME ON!! THAT WAS DIRTY! JAMIE O’HARA WITH A LOW BLOW RIGHT TO THE KILLER! JAMIE IS BACK ON HIS FEET NOW. HE TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE RUNNING FORWARD… IN EXCELSIS AGAIN!!!!!! COME ON! NOT LIKE THIS! JAMIE, LAYING ON HIS BACK, FORCES HIMSELF UP TO ROLL OVER ONTO KEELAN! HE HOOKS THE FAR LEG! IT’S OVER!
Kawajai: NO! FREAKING! WAY! COME ON!!! KEELAN HAS KICKED OUT AND THIS MATCH IS STILL GOING! THIS HAS BEEN ONE HELL OF A MAIN EVENT TO ROAD TO REDEMPTION, NICK! WE MIGHT BE HERE ALL NIGHT!!!
Nick Angel: Jamie has rolled to the outside of the ring to where Carlos Rosso’s body is being attended to by an EMT by the door of the chamber! Jamie PULLS the EMT away and begins to pillage his body. He’s yanking at his leg? What is he… HEY, THAT’S CARLOS’ METAL SHINGUARD! He unstraps it from Carlos’ leg and puts it on just below his kneecap! What the hell has the champion got in mind?! Jamie enters the ring again, before slapping at that shinguard! Keelan is stirring, but Jamie is looking to end it! Jamie lifts Keelan up and pulls him into the center of the ring. Jamie steps back… IN EXCELSIS!!!!
Kawajai: NOOOO!! KEELAN DUCKS! KEELAN DUCKS! KEELAN LIFTS JAMIE ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! THE FANS RISE TO THEIR FEET TO A HUGE CHEER! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!!! KEELAN SPINS JAMIE AROUND FOR THE DEAD!!! BY!!! DAYLIGHT!!!
NOOOOOOOO!!! OH MY GOD!!! IN MID AIR, JAMIE KNEES KEELAN IN THE BACK OF THE NECK WITH THAT METAL SHINGUARD!!! KEELAN DROPS TO HIS KNEES! OH NO! JAMIE LANDS ON HIS FEET! HE GRABS KEELAN BY THE WRIST AND SPINS HIM… KIIIIIIIIINNGGSSLLLAAAAAAAAYYERRR!!!!!!!!!! WITH THE METAL SHINGUARD BELOW THE KNEE!! KEELAN IS KNOCKED OUT COLD! JAMIE DROPS TO THE COVER. GOOD NIGHT… THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin plays as Jamie O’Hara rolls off of Keelan Cetinich and nearly passes out, having to be shaken awake by the referee who gets his attention and raises his almost limp hand.)
Rebecca Sawyer: Here is your winner… AAAAAAAAAAAAAANNDDD STILL!!! EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… JAAAAAAAAAAMIIIEEE O’HAAAAAAAAAARRRAAAAAA!!!!!
Nick Angel: Phenomenal. One of the most brutal, most taxing, most creative and most breathtaking Extreme Elimination Chamber matches I have ever seen. The anarchy of those last ten minutes or so were just non-stop, bloody action! Almost none of the members in the chamber were even able to get up out of the chamber after their elimination! Jamie O’Hara came in last but looks like he went through an iron man match! He is SPENT! He’s getting up and the first thing he is asking for is his World Heavyweight Championship! The referee heads over to the steel floor of the chamber and reaches out, pulling the title through the chains and presenting it to Jamie!
Kawajai: The reward for his effort, for his blood, for EVERYTHING! Jamie fought to the death to win that title! He had to upgrade his best move in his arsenal with a metal SHINGUARD to put out his final opponent, Keelan Cetinich! Let’s not forget the final three with TLA in that equation. That series between all three was classic and TLA! TLA is at the bottom of the ramp! He finally walked down the steps and is sat against the barricade watching this all going on, distraught! You can hear him saying it under all of those crowd reactions – “not again, not like this!” He was forced to watch that final two without him that whole time because of some unexpected events…and there goes Jamie O’Hara limping down the steel steps to leave and passing him with that World Heavyweight Championship over his shoulder, teasing him! Jamie O’Hara is the one man walking out of that Chamber under his own power AND with his head held high! Jamie extends his reign once more, inching closer to the longest of all time!

Ring Announcer: The following contest is set for one fall, and it is for the EAW HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(“Love, Sex, Riot” by Issues hits to a huge pop from the crowd as Ahren Fournier steps out to the stage. Fournier takes in the love and walks down the ramp. Several women in the front row pass out from the raw sexiness exuded by Fournier as he steps onto the apron and poses before entering the ring.)
Stew-O: Ahren Fournier secured this opportunity at one of the biggest EAW events of the year for himself by going through SEVEN other Dynasty talent at House of Glass, winning bigly in the Glass Gauntlet! Ahren is heavily determined to regain the Hardcore Championship! House of Glass was the same event where the current champion Darkane picked up the title after a hellacious Glass Rules match against Scott Diamond, so this is a match that’s more than a month and a half in the making!
(“Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus hits to roaring boos from all around the arena. Darkane walks down to the ring with the Hardcore Championship dragging behind him and his gravedigger’s shovel in the other hand. Darkane enters the ring staring daggers through Fournier.)
Mercer: Now THIS is a champion! Darkane was made for that Hardcore title and the Hardcore title was made for Darkane! He put down a Hall of Famer like a stray dog and wears that title like a badge of honor, as he should! I’m saying it now, Fournier isn’t cut out to be Hardcore Champion again with this man as champion! This should be an easy defense for the champ!
Stew-O: Trust me, Ahren’s itching to prove you wrong!
(Darkane and Ahren Fournier take their corners as the announcer gets ready for introductions.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger, from Planet Fournier, weighing in at 220 pounds… THE TRILL FAIRY!!!!… AHREN FOURNIER!!!!!
(The crowd pops for Ahren and he gyrates his hips in response, causing further bodily harm to the desperate women in the front row.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from New Orleans, Louisiana, weighing in at 240 pounds…. HE IS THE EAW HARDCORE CHAMPION!!!!… THE GRAVEWORM!!!!… DARK —
Stew-O: DARKANE’S DONE WAITING!!!! DARKANE DRIVES THE HILT OF HIS SHOVEL INTO FOURNIER’S MIDSECTION AND KICKS HIM STRAIGHT IN THE CHEST SENDING HIM INTO THE ROPES!!! DARKANE RUNS AT FOURNIER WITH A BIG CLOTHESLINE TAKING HIM OUT OF THE RING!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: THE REF JUST CALLED FOR THE BELL, THIS ONE’S OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY!!!! Darkane rolls out of the ring and picks Fournier up by the tights, whipping him hard into the barricade! Darkane’s a dirty bastard for this!
Mercer: NO HE’S NOT! HE’S ABUSING THE SYSTEM LIKE ALL SMART CAPITALISTS SHOULD DO! DID YOU FORGET WHAT COUNTRY WE’RE IN STEW?
Stew-O: GOD DAMN IT!
Mercer: Darkane reaches under the ring and pulls out a steel chair – FOURNIER POUNCES ON DARKANE KNOCKING HIM FLAT ON HIS BACK ON THE CONCRETE!!! FOURNIER UNLOADS WITH HARD SHOTS TO DARKANE’S FACE TRYING HIS BEST TO SUBDUE THE CHAMP – DARKANE FIRES BACK WITH A STIFF HEADBUTT!!!! Darkane pushes Fournier over onto his back and reverses the tide now, wrapping one hand tight around his throat while he bashes his nose with stiff elbows!
Stew-O: Fournier isn’t giving up on the effort just yet, blocking what he can while he fires back with long reaching left hooks, that grip on his neck is going to mess him up if he doesn’t break free of it soon – OH!!! FOURNIER HOOKS DARKANE BY THE NOSTRILS AND REARS HIS HEAD BACK!!!! Darkane releases his grip and Fournier shoves him away before reaching for the chair Darkane had! Darkane wastes no time coming right back – AND FOURNIER NAILS DARKANE OVER THE HEAD WITH THE CHAIR!!!! THE SOUND OF THAT IMPACT WAS DISGUSTING!!!!
Mercer: Darkane’s down on his knees, dazed and confused, and Fournier picks up the top half of the steel steps now, making his way over to Darkane… AND FOURNIER SWINGS WITH THE STEPS!!!! FOURNIER CATCHES DARKANE ON THE HEAD AND SENDS HIM TUMBLING BACK INTO THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!! Darkane leans against the announce table, trying to pull himself up… AND HERE COMES FOURNIER AGAIN, DRIVING THE STEPS INTO DARKANE, SANDWICHING HIM AGAINST THE TABLE WITH ALMOST A HUNDRED POUNDS OF STEEL!!!
Stew-O: Fournier quickly climbs up to the apron, looking down at Darkane who still has the steps pinning him against the table… AND FOURNIER FLIES WITH THE MISSILE DROPKICK FROM THE APRON!!!! FOURNIER DROPKICKS THE STEPS INTO DARKANE AND THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET FOR THE TRILL FAIRY!!!! Fournier quickly picks Darkane off of the ground and rolls him into the ring, before grabbing the chair and rolling into the ring himself! Darkane is already on the up and up trying to push himself to his feet BUT FOURNIER SLAMS THE CHAIR OVER DARKANE’S BACK, PUTTING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE MAT!!!
Mercer: I’ll concede, Fournier is showing a killer instinct I haven’t seen from him yet on Dynasty, nobody has kept Darkane down like this so far! Darkane took advantage of that surprise start at House of Glass and maintained it throughout the match to beat Scott Diamond but it seems like Ahren Fournier had it scouted, and Darkane’s paying for it now!
Stew-O: Fournier stands near Darkane armed with the chair, waiting for him to get back up… Darkane’s crawling away trying to get up to his knees… AND HERE COMES FOURNIER WITH THE CHAIR WITH THE TRAJECTORY POINTING TOWARDS DARKANE’S HEAD — DARKANE TURNS OVER AND KICKS FOURNIER’S KNEE OUT!!! FOURNIER FALLS STRAIGHT TO THE MAT NEXT TO DARKANE – AND DARKANE REACHES OVER GRABBING FOURNIER BY THE NECK, WHAT’S HE THINKING OF?… CROSSFACE!!!! DARKANE LOCKS FOURNIER INTO THE CROSSFACE!!!!
Mercer: FOURNIER IS IN A WORLD OF TROUBLE!!!! FOURNIER IS DESPERATELY CRAWLING FOR THE ROPES BEFORE DARKANE CUTS OFF THE BLOODSTREAM TO HIS HEAD BUT IT’S NOT GOING TO SAVE HIM HERE, HE’S RUNNING PURELY ON INSTINCT!!!!
Stew-O: Getting to the ropes might not award him a rope break but it’ll definitely give him some leverage in breaking free!
Mercer: Darkane’s trying to put himself entirely on Fournier’s back but Fournier smartly keeps himself angled a little to the side as he continues to scratch and claw his way to the ropes… DARKANE IS PULLING FOURNIER’S HEAD BACK IN THE CROSSFACE… DARKANE MOUNTS HIMSELF ON FOURNIER’S BACK!!!! DARKANE’S TRYING TO REAR HIM BACK FOR THE CAMEL CLUTCH CROSSFACE — FOURNIER CHOMPS DARKANE’S HAND!!!! JESUS CHRIST HE DREW BLOOD ON THAT!!!! WHAT A LOW, DIRTY MOVE!!! AHREN SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF!!!
Stew-O: LET’S NOT PRETEND DARKANE HASN’T USED THE SAME TACTICS HIMSELF!!!! THAT’S WHAT DARKANE DOES TO PEOPLE, HE BRINGS OUT THE WORST PRIMITIVE INSTINCTS OF SURVIVAL OUT OF MEN, AND THIS IS HOW HE PAYS FOR IT!!!! Darkane flails off of Ahren, screaming in pain as he tries to nurse his hand, while Fournier rolls out to the apron and picks himself up… FOURNIER SLINGSHOTS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND LANDS ON DARKANE WITH THE SOMERSAULT SENTON!!!! Fournier quickly picks the chair back up and runs to the ropes while Darkane starts to stir… Fournier comes back on the return – AND WHAT??!!!! DARKANE IS UP ON HIS FEET!!!! DARKANE TURNS FOURNIER INSIDE OUT WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE BEFORE COLLAPSING TO THE MAT!!!!
Mercer: DARKANE IS A MONSTER, I KEEP TELLING YOU AND YOU DON’T WANT TO BELIEVE ME!!!! THAT’S THE RESILIENCY OF A CHAMPION!!!! THAT’S THE RESILIENCY OF A MAN WHO HAD TO FIGHT FOR HIS SURVIVAL EVERY DAY GOING UP, NOT SOME PAMPERED METROSEXUAL HEATHEN WHO BUILT HIS CAREER ON LIBERAL SEXUAL AMBIGUITY!!!! GET WITH IT STEW!!!!
Stew-O: Fournier rolls away from Darkane, reaching for the chair – DARKANE’S GOT HIS HAND ON IT TOO!!!! WHAT IS WITH THIS MAN?!!! Darkane wipes the blood from his hand off on his face and slowly begins to pull himself up to his feet while Fournier tries his best to pull the chair away, but Darkane isn’t having it! Darkane yanks the chair out of Fournier’s hand AND SWINGS!!!! FOURNIER DUCKS IT AND JUMPS HIGH INTO THE AIR… PERFECT DROPKICK!!!! DARKANE GETS SENT INTO THE CORNER, DROPPING THE CHAIR, AND FOURNIER QUICKLY PICKS IT UP BEFORE CHARGING AT THE CHAMP IN THE CORNER, DRIVING THE EDGE OF THE CHAIR INTO HIS MIDSECTION!!!!
Mercer: Darkane staggers out of the corner – AND FOURNIER QUICKLY PLANTS HIM ON THE MAT WITH THE SNAP SUPLEX!!!! Fournier looks at the chair then up to the top rope… Fournier drops the chair over Darkane’s midsection… HE’S CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP ROPE!!!! WHAT THE HELL IS HE THINKING — NO!!!! FOURNIER FLIES!!!! FROG SPLASH!!!!! FROG SPLASH INTO THE CHAIR SET UP OVER DARKANE’S MIDSECTION!!!!! FOURNIER RECOILS BACK, DOUBLING OVER!!!! HE’S JUST AS HURT AS DARKANE BUT FOURNIER CRAWLS HIS WAY OVER AND HOOKS A LEG!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!…… TWO!!!!!….. THREE —
Stew-O: DARKANE KICKS OUT!!!!! FOURNIER PUT HIS BODY ON THE LINE AND FOR WHAT? I have to agree with you there, that was a very last ditch kind of move for Fournier to use at this point in the match, and considering it didn’t put Darkane away, Fournier’s going to have to deal with the damage he just inflicted on himself here too! Fournier clutches his midsection sitting against the corner while Darkane lays slumped in the center of the ring. Fournier rolls out of the ring and falls to the floor, reaching under the ring, pulling out a kendo stick and a table! Fournier rolls the table into the ring and picks the kendo stick up, looking at it for a moment before SNAPPING IT OVER HIS KNEE INTO TWO PIECES, AND FOURNIER ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING WIELDING ONE HALF OF THE KENDO STICK IN EACH HAND!!!!
Mercer: Darkane coughs up blood and pushes himself up to his knees looking up at Fournier – AND FOURNIER SWINGS THE STICK INTO THE SIDE OF DARKANE’S FACE, OPENING A BLOOD VESSEL NEXT TO HIS EYE!!! Fournier swings with the other stick now – DARKANE CATCHES THE HAND!!!! BUT FOURNIER SWINGS THE OTHER ONE BACK AT THE OPEN WOUND — DARKANE CATCHES THAT HAND TOO!!!! I SERIOUSLY QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT THIS MAN IS ENTIRELY HUMAN… AND IT LOOKS LIKE AHREN IS THINKING THE SAME!!!! DARKANE PULLS AHREN DOWN TO HIS KNEES AND DRIVES HIS HEAD INTO HIS FACE!!!! THAT SICK HEADBUTT REVERBERATED AROUND THE ARENA AND DARKANE FIRES WITH ANOTHER ONE, DROPPING AHREN TO THE MAT!!!!
Stew-O: Darkane picks up what’s left of himself and limps his way towards the corner, picking up the table and setting it up against the corner. Darkane drops to his knees, heaving, but he picks himself up back up and steps out of the ring. Fournier starts to make his way back to his feet but Darkane reaches into his coat at ringside and pulls out a black pouch… That doesn’t look so good. Darkane reaches down for his shovel and makes his way back into the ring while Fournier is up on wobbly legs… DARKANE SWINGS AT FOURNIER – FOURNIER JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY!!! BUT DARKANE FEIGNED THE SHOT!!!! DARKANE MUSTERS UP SOME ENERGY AND RUNS AT FOURNIER KNOCKING HIM TO THE MAT WITH A SHINING WIZARD TO THE HEAD!!!!
Mercer: Fournier nearly rolls out of the ring after the impact of that move but Darkane pulls him back in and picks up the black pouch off the mat… HE’S EMPTYING IT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!!! What is… ARE THOSE THUMB TACKS?!!!! THOSE ARE FREAKING THUMB TACKS!!!! DARKANE ISN’T LOOKING TO JUST END THIS MATCH, HE’S LOOKING TO END FOURNIER’S CAREER!!!! Darkane grabs Fournier and slowly pulls him up, first to his knees, looking down on him… AND DARKANE SPITS IN FOURNIER’S FACE!!!! VINTAGE DARKANE!!!!
Stew-O: I don’t understand how you can be so jovial right now, this is a disgusting affair and the quicker this match ends, the better.
Mercer: LIGHTEN UP STEW!!! YOU’RE LOOKING AT A HARDCORE LEGEND IN THE MAKING!!!
Stew-O: Shut the hell up.
Mercer: Darkane’s got Fournier up to his feet now… AND DARKANE SPINS FOURNIER AROUND!!!! HE’S GOING FOR THE STROKE, TRYING TO DRIVE FOURNIER INTO THE TACKS WITH THE FORWARD FALLING STO!!!! DARKANE GETS FOURNIER IN POSITION FOR THE GRAVEDIGGER — NO!!!! HOW?!!!! FOURNIER BREAKS FREE AND STUNS DARKANE IN PLACE WITH AN ELBOW SMASH!!!! FOURNIER HOOKS DARKANE BY THE ARMS… NO!!!! NOT ON THE THUMBTACKS!!! THINK ABOUT THIS MAN’S FAMILY AHREN YOU INHUMANE MONSTER!!!!
Stew-O: NOT SO FUNNY WHEN THE SHOE’S ON THE OTHER FOOT RIGHT?!!!! FOURNIER SCOOPS DARKANE UP!!!… DOUBLE UNDERHOOK POWERBOMB!!!! OH MY GOD!!!! FOURNIER PLANTS DARKANE RIGHT INTO THE THUMBTACKS AND DARKANE’S VISCERAL SCREAMS PAINT THE ENTIRE TALE!!!! Darkane rolls over… LOOK AT THE BLOOD POURING OUT OF THOSE TACK WOUNDS!!!! HE DID THIS TO HIMSELF!!!!
Mercer: Fournier looks down and starts to kick some tacks under Darkane’s face… Oh no… FOURNIER TAKES TO THE ROPES!!! NO!!! NO!!! NO!!! FOURNIER JUMPS UP!!!! CURB STOMP!!!! STORYBOOK ENDING — YES!!!!! DARKANE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!!!! FOURNIER STOMPS THE TACKS AND DARKANE PULLS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT, ATTEMPTING TO LOCK IN ANOTHER CROSSFACE!!!!
Stew-O: NO!!! FOURNIER FIGHTS HIS WAY OUT OF IT AND PULLS HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET!!! BOTH MEN ARE RUNNING ON FUMES AT THIS POINT!!! FOURNIER STAGGERS AWAY BUT DARKANE GRABS THE SHOVEL AND RISES TO HIS FEET, SWINGING AT FOURNIER… FOURNIER DODGES IT!!!! FOURNIER JUMPS WITH THE ENZUIGURI STUNNING DARKANE, BEFORE WHIPPING HIM INTO THE CORNER WHERE THE TABLE IS SET UP!!!! Darkane crashes into the table and Fournier picks up the rusty, bloody shovel, looking down the ring at Darkane… FOURNIER CHARGES AT DARKANE WITH THE SHOVEL!!!!
Mercer: DARKANE COMES OUT OF THE CORNER WITH THE YAKUZA KICK!!!! FOURNIER GETS SENT STUMBLING BACK INTO THE ROPES BUT COMES BACK FULL STEAM AHEAD!!! CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!!! PROTECT YA NECK!!!! DARKANE DUCKS IT AND GRABS THE SHOVEL!!!! AHREN TURNS AROUND AND DARKANE BASHES THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD WITH THE SHOVEL!!!! AHREN’S BRAIN MUST FEEL LIKE MUSH!!!! DARKANE BACKHANDS HIM IN THE SIDE OF THE FACE!!!! AHREN TURNS TO THE SIDE AND DARKANE KICKS HIM IN THE TAILBONE SENDING HIM STUMBLING TOWARDS THE TABLE — OH MY GOD!!!! DARKANE WITH THE DEVIL MAY CRY!!!!! DARKANE HITS THE SPEAR TO THE SPINE SENDING HIMSELF AND AHREN BOTH INTO THE TABLE, CRASHING INTO AN EXPLODING PILE OF WOOD AND DUST!!!! BOTH MEN FALL BACK INTO THE MAT AND DARKANE USES EVERYTHING HE HAS LEFT TO DRAPE AN ARM OVER AHREN FOURNIER!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!…. TWO!!!!!!…. THREE!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(““Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus hits to thundering boos from the crowd.)
Ring Announcer: HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY WAY OF PINFALL!!!!… AND STILL EAW HARDCORE CHAMPION!!!!… DARKANE!!!!!
Mercer: ONCE AGAIN, DARKANE PROVES WHY HE IS THE NEW FACE OF HARDCORE!!!! ISIS IS JEALOUS OF EXTREME THIS MAN CAN GET, AND THAT’S SAYING SOMETHING!!!!
Stew-O: Jake, I’m two minutes away from standing up and kicking your ass. I’ll admit, Darkane does his job very well, but you can’t deny that he might have taken things too far here. He doesn’t even have the strength left to pick himself back up, so what did he accomplish?
Mercer: He’s still champion Stew, and that’s what counts. I’ll be the first to say it – Ahren Fournier blew every expectation I had tonight, and he definitely had Darkane’s number at times. Darkane had a better mind for this and more of a killer instinct, but with the performance Ahren put up, he’ll definitely remain one of the biggest threats to Darkane’s title.
(The camera pans back to medical staff attending to both men in the ring before panning to the back.)
(Camera transitions backstage to the Heart Break Gal talking to Brian Daniels in his office)
Brian: You’re sure? You’re absolutely sure you can handle this tonight? You’ve got to be banged up after the Grand Prix Finals.
HBG: I’m fine. I’m a big girl, I can take it. Even if I were injured in that match or something, you think that would stop me? No way. I’m not stopping until I become EAW Champion. Not for a second.
Brian: Well, as long as you’re certain. Not much I can do anyway. You chose to be in both.
HBG: And I’m gonna win both.
???: Is that right?
(HBG and Daniels turn to Tiberius IV, stepping into the Office with a smirk on his face, holding the EAW Championship on his shoulder)
Tiberius: Let’s not get in over our heads, HBG. Yeah, you won your little Grand Prix Match, good for you. Hell, I’ve won a Grand Prix Match. Winning a tag team match is one thing, but winning a World Championship, I’m sure even you know, is another thing entirely. How many times have you failed already? Twice? Three times? You’ve probably lost count.
(HBG gets in the face of Tiberius as Brian Daniels attempts to step between them)
Brian: Now, now… Tiberius, if you’d be so kind as to get the Hell out of my Office, that would be great. Go play play grab ass with your Triumvirate friends or something. Trying to get under everyone’s skin right now isn’t gonna do much, especially considering the circumstances.
Brian: Think about it. HBG isn’t the only one who’s been waiting to rip you apart. Pretty much everyone in that Chamber wants a piece of you. In fact, you might be the most hated defending Champion I’ve ever seen step inside a Chamber. Now think about that… Five people who want your head on a pike, locked inside a structure like that, with all the weapons they could ask for… Kind of scary, isn’t it?
(Tiberius slightly smirks and then laughs)
Tiberius: Is that honestly supposed to scare me? They don’t scare me. You especially don’t scare me, Brian. You–
(HBG gets in Tiberius’ face again as they stare down)
HBG: All you’ve done is talk since the day I first told you I was coming for your Title, TJ. I’m tired of talking. I won one match tonight, and I’m gonna win another. I’m walking out of here either with the EAW Championship. Maybe even more. Who knows.
(HBG and Tiberius continue to stare down as she takes her leave)
Brian: Good luck, buddy.
(An annoyed Tiberius looks at Daniels for a second before storming off out of the Office. Daniels smiles as the camera transitions back to the ring)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, this next contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Ring Announcer: AND IS FOR THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!!
(“I Get Money” – 50 Cent hits as The High Rollerz make their way out through the curtain to a CHORUS of cheers from the thousands in attendance.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challengers, weighing in at a combined weight of FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVEN POUNDS!!… THEY ARE THE TEAM OF DAVID DAVIDSON AND JACK RIPLEY!!… THE!! HIGH!! ROOOOOOLLLLLEEEERRRZZZZZ!!!!
Drake: ARE YOU READY FOR A SLAUGHTER, PIERRE? WE HAVE THAT ELIMINATION CHAMBER HANGING ABOVE THE RING; NOTHING THAT WE HAVE SEEN, NOTHING THAT WE WILL SEE LATER ON TONIGHT CAN PHYSICALLY COMPARE TO WHAT THESE TWO MEN ARE GOING TO BE FORCED TO GO THROUGH TONIGHT AT THE HANDS OF LANNISTER AND ARES VENDETTA!
Pierre: If there are two names that I would hate standing against, Ares and Lannister may be at the top, but remember – this is the first time that The High Rollerz have the chance to face the two men that took their titles at Territorial Invasion inside that No Way Out main event, in a traditional tag match. Tonight isn’t clear cut; the real question is how will Lannister and Ares Vendetta react if things begin to go sour? How will they react if the High Rollerz manage to pull things into their favour?
Drake: We won’t get that answer tonight.
(“I Get Money” fades out as the lights throughout the arena slowly cut off until the arena is shrouded in a complete darkness.)
(Two single spotlights cut down onto the stage revealing two empty thrones sitting side by side. The spotlights shut back off before one shoots back on revealing Ares Vendetta sitting in the once empty throne with one half of the Unified Tag Championships around his waist; the second shoots on revealing Lannister sitting on the other throne with his half of the Unified Tag Championships hanging from his shoulder.)
(“Veni, Vidi, Vici” – ContRoVersy hits as both Ares and Lannister rise to their feet and slowly begin to make their way down to the ring. Neither team’s eyes leaving their opponents.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing next, the CHAMPIONS, weighing in tonight at a combined weight of FOUR HUNDRED AND SIXTY NINE POUNDS!!… THE ARE THE TEAM OF ARES VENDETTA AND DARTH LANNISTER!!… THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!! THE TRIIIIIUUUUMMMMVVVVIIRRRAAATTTEEE!!!
Drake: Here they are, Pierre! The CHAMPIONS! The two men that stand alongside the Champion of EAW! The men that will hold those championships FOREVER! After tonight, there is going to be nothing left for The High Rollerz – hell, there’s not going to be a High Rollerz after tonight. It’s just unfortunate that HBG is one of the two people to be forced to stand against Ares Vendetta and Lannister after tonight.
Pierre: I’m sure that HBG and Cameron Ella Ava are more than capable with keeping up with either of these teams, Drake.
Drake: HBG – of course – she’s the Legend among Legends! But one piece of greatness isn’t going to overcome two! Especially when she has those shackles locked around her ankles, in the form of her tag team partner.
Pierre: The former multiple time Vixen’s Champion; former Women’s World Champion; Hall of Famer —
Drake: Multiple time loser, over the hill, Voltage scum… I’ve got things to say too, Pierre.
(Ares Vendetta and Lannister enter the ring and meet both Davidson and Ripley in the middle. The referee tries to get between the two teams, but neither budge an inch.)
Pierre: You could cut the tension with a knife.
(Ares and Lannister raise their championships high into the air before they’re handed to the referee, still neither team step back.)
Pierre: The referee telling both teams that one person from each team needs to make their way onto the apron before he’s going to call for the bell. Reluctantly, Ares Vendetta and David Davidson comply and it seems like Lannister and Jack Ripley will be the two names to start us off here!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Drake: The bell rings and this Tag Team Championship contest is officially underway; Ripley and Lannister coming together – look at this size difference between both men. I’d love to see what could potentially happen if Lannister’s able to truly take control. Ripley turning his head and looks back at Davidson – BEFORE SLAPPING LANNISTER RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE! LOOK AT THE EYES OF LANNISTER; COMPLETELY ENGULFED BY PURE FURY AS RIPLEY TURNS AND SHOOTS OUT OF THE RING! LANNISTER IS GIVING CHASE; THE SPEED OF A MAN HIS SIZE IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! LANNISTER ALMOST CATCHING HIM AS RIPLEY SLIDES INTO THE RING! LANNISTER FOLLOWS AS RIPLEY MEETS HIM WITH A LOW DROPKICK TO THE KNEE! Lannister dropping down to one knee as Ripley hits the ropes and DRIVES BOTH FEET INTO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH A SECOND DROPKICK! Lannister sent rolling under the bottom rope as Ripley doesn’t look to the slowdown in the slightest! Ripley hitting the ropes before charging back across the ring – AND THROUGH THE ROPES WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! NO, LANNISTER CAUGHT HIM —
Pierre: I don’t think Lannister saw Davidson tag himself in – AND DAVIDSON FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND INTO LANNISTER WITH THE TOPE CON HILO!! Lannister is down as both Ripley and Davidson shoot to their feet and turn their attention straight towards Ares Vendetta; this may have been their game plan all along! Take out Lannister before moving onto Ares; force these two to fight on their own rather than as a team. Ares enters the ring as both Davidson and Ripley slowly make their way around either side. Ares stands in the middle of the ring as Davidson and Ripley make their way up onto the apron; Lannister is still down clutching at the back of his neck as Ares invites them in. Ares inviting them for a fight as Ripley and Davidson don’t hesitate in the slightest! Ripley slightshots over the top rope and into the ring – BUT ARES VENDETTA MEETS HIM WITH A JUMPING KNEE! SUPERKICK!! DAVIDSON WITH A SUPERKICK TO ARES VENDETTA!! ARES DOESN’T GO DOWN, BUT HE’S DEFINITELY STUNNED!! DAVIDSON PULLS HIM IN!! CHA-CHING!! IMPALER DDT!! I DON’T BELIEVE IT!! I NEVER EXPECTED THIS MATCH TO BEGIN LIKE THIS!! Ripley and Davidson looking at each other; Ares is down in the ring, Lannister is pushing himself back up to his feet on the outside. This gang mentality has worked perfectly so far for the High Rollerz! Ripley and Davidson dragging Ares back up and throw him out of the ring before turning their attention back to Lannister! The referee being extremely lenient right now. Lannister’s back to his feet and realises the position he’s in. Both Davidson and Ripley standing either side of the man!
Drake: Come on, Lannister! RIPLEY STRIKES! DAVIDSON FOLLOWS! BOTH MEN WITH THESE CLUBBING BLOWS TO LANNISTER! LANNISTER DROPPING DOWN TO A KNEE AS DAVIDSON FIRES WITH A SHOOT KICK TO THE CHEST! RIPLEY WITH ONE OF HIS OWN! DAVIDSON! RIPLEY! DAVIDSON! RIPLEY! DAVIDSON! RIPLEY! RELENTLESS SHOTS BY THE FORMER TAG CHAMPIONS! Both men dragging Lannister up and roll him into the ring. Davidson screams for Ripley to head for the top rope… you can’t tell me they’re going to look to finish this already. Lannister, get up! Ares, get back into the ring! This can’t be happening! Lannister is dazed as Davidson tags Ripley back in before latching onto Lannister and forces him into that neckbreaker position as Ripley climbs up top! NO! COME ON, LANNISTER! THE HIGH ROLLERZ HAVE JUST HIT THE JACKPOT!! LANNISTER IS DOWN; DAVIDSON BLOCKING ARES FROM GETTING BACK INTO THE RING! RIPLEY INTO THE COVER!
Drake: HAHAHAHA!! LANNISTER POWERED OUT AT ONE!! RIPLEY SENT FLYING THROUGH THE ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE AS LANNISTER JUST SITS THERE, EYES LOCKED ON DAVIDSON!! THE MAN IS IN SHOCK!! THEY HAD THEIR PLAN, PIERRE!! SEPARATE AND DESTROY; THE HIT LANNISTER WITH THEIR BEST SHOT AND LANNISTER JUST POWERS OUT AT ONE!! NOT TWO – ONE!! Davidson shaking his head – but Ares! Ares from behind, grabs him by the leg and drags him out of the ring, and Ares sends David Davidson crashing back into the barricade! Ares isn’t finished there, beginning to repeatedly drive the boot into the face and chest of Davidson! Things are about to get ugly, Pierre. Lannister’s back to his feet; Ripley is in the same kind of shock that Davidson was in. Imagine what those two men have to be thinking; they’ve won titles with that move, they’ve retained those titles with that Jackpot – Lannister shrugged it off. Ripley standing on the outside, but you need to get back into the ring! There’s a man that’s just waiting to pay a debt with your name on it, Jack! Ripley shooting up onto the apron as Lannister charges forward! Lannister looks to drive his shoulder into the stomach of Ripley, but Ripley manages to dodge! Ripley drives his boot into the chest of Lannister and sends him back reeling! Ripley wasting no time, springboarding off the top rope – BUT LAUNCHES HIMSELF STRAIGHT INTO THAT VICIOUS FEUER FREI!! JACK RIPLEY CRUMBLES IN A HEAP, BUT LANNISTER DOESN’T COVER – HE WANTS TO HURT THE MAN! HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE TRIUMVIRATE NEVER HAVE TO DEAL WITH THESE TWO SCUMS AGAIN! Lannister dragging Ripley back up and ragdolls him into the corner!
Pierre: I hate to think about where this match is about to go… Lannister stalks Ripley who grabs at his back; you could hear the sound of flesh hitting that corner echo around the arena. Ripley trying to fight out of the corner with shots to Lannister, but the man just brushes them off. It’s been months since we’ve really seen this look in Lannister’s eyes. Ripley fires with a shot to the side of the face of Lannister – but Lannister caught the hand! AND LANNISTER FIRES WITH A BRUTAL EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! SHOT AFTER SHOT; EACH GETTING MORE VICIOUS THAN THE LAST! LOOK AT ARES ON THE OUTSIDE; HE HAS DAVIDSON TRAPPED, FORCING THE MAN TO WATCH LANNISTER MAUL HIS PARTNER! He finally relents as Ripley falls forward… straight into the arms of Lannister! Lannister locks the waist of Jack Ripley AND SENDS HIM CRASHING ACROSS THE RING WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! Ripley landing on the back of his head, but the kid somehow forces himself back up – but Lannister’s there again and locks the waist! German Suplex! Ripley sent crashing back across the ring again. This time Ripley isn’t too quick to get back up – he’s reaching out his hand towards his corner, but no one is there. Davidson is still down on the outside as Ares finally makes his way back up onto the apron. Ares wants into this match. Lannister deadlifting Ripley up off the canvas and sends him back into his corner! Ares extends him hand and Lannister tags the man in.
Drake: This is a beautiful sight, isn’t it, Pierre? Ripley taking in those deep breaths, struggling to breath after that assault from Lannister, but this is all only the beginning. Ares applying the front facelock and drags Ripley back out of the corner; Ripley defiantly trying to fight away, but he doesn’t have the energy left! Ares fires with a knee to the midsection of Ripley! A second! A Third! Fourth! Fifth! Each shot forcing less air to get back into the lungs; this doesn’t just hurt the man momentarily, this severely lowers their chances of getting back into it in the later stages. Ares stops as Ripley’s legs fall out from under him; Davidson using the apron to drag himself back up, but Ripley must seem a million miles away right now. Ares scoops Jack up off his shoulders as that vile smile crosses his face – AND ARES SENDS JACK RIPLEY CRASHING INTO THE CORNER WITH A RUNNING DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!! RIPLEY LAUNCHED SPINE FIRST INTO THE CORNER AND DROPS BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!! Davidson is back up on the apron – BUT ARES SENDS HIM CRASHING BACK OFF WITH A SUPERKICK!! Ares shaking his head; there’s no way that he’s going allow Davidson to come close to getting back into this contest – he’d rather just play with the wounded animal that he has laying at his feet. Ripley, though, still trying to get back to his feet; Ripley crawling and grabs onto the tights of Ares Vendetta and begins to drag himself up. Ares just watching as Ripley pushes himself back to a knee – BUT ARES SUDDENLY SHOOTS INTO THE CORNER AND REBOUNDS BACK WITH THAT DARKSTAR!! A BLOOD SPITTING DARKSTAR TO THE JAW OF JACK RIPLEY!! RIPLEY IS OUT!! ARES DROPS DOWN INTO THE COVER!!
ONE!!… TWO!!… THRE-KICKOUT!!!!!
Pierre: NO!! RIPLEY KICKS OUT!! IT’S NOT OVER; AFTER ALL THE PUNISHMENT, RIPLEY STILL FINDS ENOUGH TO GET THAT SHOULDER OFF THE CANVAS!! Ares isn’t happy! Ares was methodical; blood pouring from the mouth of Ripley after that knee, but it wasn’t enough to keep him down. Ares mounting Ripley and begins to fire away with those closed fisted shots, but the referee quickly tries to interject! ARES PUSHES HIM AWAY! ARES RUNNING A FINE LINE AS HE CONTINUES TO RAIN DOWN THOSE STRIKES! THE REFEREE GRABS ONTO ARES AND DRAGS HIM BACK, FORCING HIM TO RELENT! THIS IS WHAT ARES DOESN’T NEED TO DO; HE DOESN’T NEED TO LOSE HIS TEMPER! Ares grabbing onto Ripley and drags him over to the corner before beginning to make his way up to the top rope! Ripley is stirring, but Ares already stands up top stalking. METEORA!! DIVING DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP!! NO, RIPLEY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!! ARES LANDS ON HIS FEET AND TURNS — YOU’LL FLOAT TOO!! SUPERKICK CONNECTS FLUSH ON THE JAW!! ARES GOES DOWN AS RIPLEY LATCHES ONTO THE TOP ROPE TO KEEP HIS FOOTING! WHAT’S KEEPING THE MAN GOING?! DAVIDSON’S BACK UP ON THE APRON! COME ON, JACK! MAKE THE TAG!! HE DOES!! RIPLEY TAGS IN DAVID DAVIDSON!! ARES STUMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET AS DAVIDSON SHOOTS INTO THE RING!! DAVIDSON HAS ARES LOCKED IN HIS SIGHTS!! ARES IS UP – AND DAVIDSON DRIVES BOTH FEET INTO THE CHEST OF ARES VENDETTA, SENDING HIM CRASHING INTO THE CORNER!! ARES GOES DOWN AND DAVID BEGINS TO MAKE HIS WAY UP TOP!! DAVIDSON IS LOOKING TO FLY–
Drake: LANNISTER!! LANNISTER CUTS HIM OFF, GRABBING ONTO THE LEG OF DAVIDSON AND YANKS HIM OFF THE TOP ROPE!!
Pierre: BUT, DAVIDSON’S ABLE TO CATCH HIMSELF ON LANNISTER’S SHOULDERS AND SENDS HIM CRASHING OFF THE APRON AND TO THE THIN PADDING THAT COVERS THE CONCRETE FLOORING WITH A HURRICANRANA!! DAVIDSON SHOOTS BACK TO HIS FEET AND LETS OUT OF YELL OF PURE EMOTION BEFORE SHOOTING BACK UP ONTO THE APRON!!
Drake: ARES!! ARES CUTS HIM OFF —
Pierre: BUT, NO!! DAVIDSON CATCHES HIM WITH A KICK THAT CONNECTS FLUSH TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!! ARES GOES DOWN AS DAVIDSON MAKES HIS WAY BACK UP TOP!! ARES ISN’T MOVING!! KOOOOOOOBBBBBEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! DIVING HEADBUTT TO THE BLACK HEART OF ARES VENDETTA!! WE’RE ABOUT TO CROWN NEW CHAMPIONS!! DAVIDSON SHOOTS INTO THE COVER!!
ONEEEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOOOO!!!!!…. THREEEEEEEE— KICKOUT!!
Drake: NO!! THANK GOD!! ARES KICKS OUT!! DAVIDSON ATTENTION SHOOTS STRAIGHT TOWARDS THE REFEREE, HE’S SCREAMING IT WAS THREE!!
Pierre: Davidson needs to not lose his focus! Ares is struggling and Davidson knows it! Davidson is calling for the end; he wants the High Rollerz championships back. Ares is gingerly pushing himself back up and stumbles back into the hands of David Davidson! DAVIDSON PULLS HIM IN!! OH MY!! THE 86 DRIVER!! OMEGA DRIVER!! NO, ARES COUNTERS WITH THE HURRICANRANA!! ARES HOLDS THE PIN!!
Pierre: DAVIDSON KICKS OUT AND TRIES TO SHOOT BACK TO HIS FEET — WHAT A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! ARES WAS A STEP FASTER AND BELTS DAVIDSON IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! DAVIDSON ONLY FALLS TO A KNEE AS ARES HITS THE ROPES!! DARKSTAR!! ANOTHER KNEE UPPERCUT!! NO!! DAVIDSON CUTS HIM OFF WITH A STANDING BICYCLE KICK!! HIGH IMPACT ELBOW SMASH!! DAVIDSON HITTING ARES VENDETTA WITH EVERY SINGLE THING HE CAN PHYSICALLY MUSTER!! ARES IS OUT ON HIS FEET AS DAVIDSON PULLS HIM IN AGAIN!! THE 86 DRIVER!! ARES SPIKED ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD WITH THAT OMEGA DRIVER!! DAVIDSON SCRAMBLES INTO THE COVER!! WE HAVE NEW CHAMPIONS!!
ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!….. TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!….. THREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
Pierre: THEY DID IT!! THE HIGH ROLLERZ ARE THREE TIME CHAMPIONS!!
Drake: NO!! NO!! ARES VENDETTA KICKED OUT!! DAVID DAVIDSON IS IN ABSOLUTE SHOCK!! DAVIDSON JUST LOOKING AT RIPLEY WHO’S STILL RECOVERING ON THE APRON!! THE 86 DRIVER TO ARES; THE JACKPOT TO LANNISTER – NEITHER MOVE BEING ABLE TO KEEP ONE OF THEM DOWN!! Davidson calling for Ripley! He’s calling for another Jackpot! If it didn’t work the first time, what makes you think it’ll work the second! Fools!
Pierre: Davidson dragging Ares back to his feet as Ripley forces himself to climb to the top rope; you can see the pain crossing his face with each form of movement he makes. Davidson grabbing the head of Ares and turns him over into that neckbreaker position! HERE IT COMES!! NO, LANNISTER!! LANNISTER REACHING UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND GRABS ONTO THE FOOT OF HIS PARTNER!! LANNISTER DRAGS ARES OUT OF THE RING; HE KNOWS THE DANGER!! BUT RIPLEY!! RIPLEY!! RIPLEY LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE — STRAIGHT INTO A FEUER FREI!! RIPLEY CRASHES AND BURNS BIG TIME!!

(The High Rollerz continue to celebrate in the ring as the camera cuts backstage.)

Ring Announcer: The following contest scheduled for one fall…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ring Announcer: …IS FOR THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
(“You Say Run” by Yuki Hayashi plays to a huge ovation as Stephanie Matsuda makes her way onto the stage in a black hoodie. She sports a blue and white bandana on her face which says, “Brody Sparks” on it. She pulls the hoodie and bandana down before posing with both fists in the air to another positive reaction from the crowd, before putting her hands together out in front of her to showcase her “C9” symbol. She begins to make her descent down to the ring…)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger! Making her way to the ring, from Brooklyn, New York! She is the BLASIAN SENSATION, STTTTEEEEPHHHAAAANIIIIEEE “CLOUD” MAAAAAAAATTSSSUUUUUUUUDDAAAAAAAAA!!
AND WHAT AN OVATION FOR CLOUD HERE TONIGHT AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION! There’s a lot of positive energy behind her from not only this crowd here but also all the EAW fans watching around the world. So many fans have stated that they want to see Cloud end this Openweight Championship reign of Ryan Marx, and tonight she might do just that!
I cannot think of another woman on the Empire roster that could bring the fight to Marx tonight more than Cloud! She has proven time and time again how far she is willing to dig down deep inside herself in order to pull out all the stops. More recently her showing in the Empress of Elite tournament this year! Cloud tonight wants to prove that THIS is HER time! She might be the toughest opponent Marx has had to defend the title against, so we’ll see how he fares in this match!
(The lights dim down almost leaving the arena in darkness. “Tempest” by Deftones plays to boos. After a few moments, five blue stage spotlights shine down and we see Ryan Marx standing in the middle with his back to the crowd, showing off the jacket he’s wearing – a black and blue jacket with Brody Sparks on the back of it and in big, bold letters underneath her it says, “ICONIC.” Ryan Marx turns around to glance out at the endless sea of fans before showing off his championship which is strapped tightly around his waist, before he makes his way down to the ring.)
Ring Announcer: And her opponent, from London, England! Weighing in at 260 pounds… HE IS THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION! THE ZEITGEIST, RYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNN MAAAAAAAAAAARRXXXXXXX!!
And this man has been on an absolute TEAR since Pain For Pride X. One more victory can give him a future world heavyweight championship match, and if I know Ryan Marx which I unfortunately do, I feel like he’ll be ready to relinquish that belt almost immediately should he come out victorious tonight.
Unfortunately I feel as if though Cloud is going to give Ryan Marx one tough time. Cloud’s been on quite the run the last couple of months herself so let’s see if she’ll be able to continue that momentum with a huge victory here over Ryan Marx tonight!
(The two opponents stand in their respective corners as the referee takes the Openweight Title off of Marx before raising it in the air in the center of the ring. He hands the belt to the timekeeper at ringside before calling for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
The bell rings, and we are underway! The Openweight Championship match between Empire’s Stephanie Matsuda and Showdown’s Ryan Marx has begun! The two meet in the middle with a collar and elbow lockup. It doesn’t take long for the strength to come into play for The Zeitgeist though as he begins to push Cloud into the ropes. The referee gets in between the two and Marx breaks up the tussle. The official begins to push Marx back away from the challenger, and Marx just has a big smirk on his face. The arrogant attitude is sure in display tonight, as he begins to flex his muscles directly at Cloud.
Cloud smiles a little bit. She’s almost impressed by the fitness level of her opponent! Oh wait! It doesn’t take long though before responding with a hard elbow strike straight to the side of the head of Ryan Marx! There’s another! And another! And one more for good measure! Cloud now running the ropes, and rebounding back but MARX WITH A SHOULDER TAKEDOWN, FLOORING CLOUD!! Marx himself now runs the ropes, and comes running back but Cloud flips onto her stomach, forcing Marx to leap over his grounded opponent. Cloud rises up as Marx reaches the other side of the ropes, and he comes back… OH CLOUD WITH A JAPANESE ARMDRAG!! OH HOLD UP! MARX IMMEDIATELY GETS BACK UP ONTO HIS FEET, AND CLOUD DOESN’T REALIZE! OHHHHH!!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! RYAN MARX JUST BACK HANDS STEPHANIE MATSUDA RIGHT IN THE FACE, ALMOST TREATING HER LIKE SHE IS HIS BITCH! Ohhh, but this has just angered The War Queen! Look at her facial reaction right now! AND NOW CLOUD UNLEASHES A SERIES OF LEFTS AND RIGHTS TO THE HEAD OF MARX, FOLLOWED BY A SERIES OF ELBOW AND FOREARM STRIKES TOO! OHHH! A ROUNDHOUSE KICK STRAIGHT TO THE CHAMPION THAT SENDS MARX THROUGH THE SECOND ROPE AND OUTSIDE TO THE FLOOR! That’s how you take control of a match early! Ryan Marx is by our announce table here, using it as assistance to help lift himself back to a vertical base. But what’s Cloud got in mind now? She’s exiting out to the ring apron, and sees Marx in a certain position… what’s going through her head?! The champion is dazed and confused after that roundhouse kick that connected perfectly. Ryan Marx slowly turns back towards the ring… oh my god, CLOUD… HOOOOLY SHIT!!! WHAT A MANEUVER! STEPHANIE MATSUDA JUST DELIVERED A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT FROM THE APRON TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND LANDS ON TOP OF RYAN MARX!!! GOOD GOD WHAT A MOVE!
That was INCREDIBLE! Cloud showcasing her high flying skills with that incredible springboard moonsault to the outside! It just shows how deep she is willing to dig to successfully defeat the Openweight Champion here tonight! Cloud lifts the champion up to his feet before rolling him into the ring, before sliding in and hooking the leg for a cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!
And a kick out at two by the champion! Cloud rolls up to her feet and now attempts to rise Ryan Marx to his feet. OH! A JAWBREAKER BY MARX! Cloud is taken back with that vicious jawbreaker, and all of a sudden the challenger’s in trouble! Marx grabs Cloud by her hair and PULLS HER DOWN HARD ONTO THE MAT, BEFORE FOLLOWING IT UP WITH A KNEE DROP RIGHT TO THE TEMPLE!! Marx now lifting Cloud up to her feet, and grabs her by the back of her neck… he’s looking to throw her out! OH WAIT! CLOUD COUNTERS AND GRABS MARX BY THE BACK AND PUSHES HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE AND INSTEAD HE GOES TUMBLING OVER! Oh hold up, Ryan Marx lands on his feet though! Marx, with anger on his face, turns around to go back in… but CLOUD IS RUNNING THE ROPES! SHE’S RUNNING WITH FULL FORCE… TOPE SUICIDA!!!!!!!
OHHHH MY GOD!!!!!! RYAN MARX MANAGES TO DODGE THE COLLISION AND PUSHES CLOUD RIGHT INTO THE SECURITY BARRICADE!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SHE MIGHT BE OUT AND OUT EARLY!! BUT RYAN MARX ISN’T ALLOWING ANY LEEWAY AS HE IMMEDIATELY LIFTS CLOUD UP TO HER FEET, BEFORE PUSHING HER KNEE FIRST RIGHT INTO THE STEEL POST!! GOOD LORD, MARX IS WANTING TO SERIOUSLY INJURE THIS WOMAN TONIGHT! Ryan Marx picks Cloud up and then lifts her to her feet. Marx lifts Cloud up from behind… THE STRENGTH FROM MARX AS HE CARRIE CLOUD OVER TO THE BARRICADE… AND THEN DROPS HER KNEE RIGHT ONTO THE TOP OF THE BARRICADE, AND CLOUD FALLS DOWN IN AGONY! The referee is on the outside to check on Cloud, as Marx poses over the downed Cloud to boos from the fans! Marx lifts up Cloud one more time and rolls her into the ring, before rolling in and going for a pin!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!
And while the champion wasn’t expecting anything less from that kickout, he still rises to his feet in a rage and begins to stomp endlessly at that injured right knee of Cloud! Ryan Marx now slowly sits Cloud up. What’s he got in mind now? He… OH NOW THAT’S JUST UNCOOL! RYAN MARX JUST SPAT RIGHT IN CLOUD’S FACE! THE DISRESPECT HERE IS UNCANNY! WAIT, OH MY!!! STEPHANIE RESPONDS WITH A LOUD SLAP THAT YOU COULD HEAR UP IN THE NOSEBLEEDS! Cloud showing exactly how to respond with the opprobrium right there! OH BUT MARX WITH A RUNNING BOOT THAT SENDS CLOUD BACK DOWN! Marx hurries to a corner with anger in his face, as well as a pink mark on his right cheek. He is not happy right now! He turns to face the downed Cloud and begins to stalk at his prey, as he awaits for Cloud to rise to her feet and get in position. Cloud turns around, unaware of her surroundings, AND MARX RUNS FORWARD WITH IMMENSE SPEED FOR A HUUUUUGE CLOTHESLINE THAT TURNS THE CHALLENGER INSIDE OUT!! And now that Cloud is down once again, Marx begins to work on that injured knee once more, dropping his own knee into it a few times, followed by a few elbow drops. Marx really wants to punish Cloud here tonight at Road to Redemption!
Indeed, and what’s he got in mind here now? Marx drags Cloud by that injured knee over to a corner before rolling out of the ring to the outside. The champion looks out at the crowd who begin to boo him loudly but he just snickers, as he grabs that injured leg again. OH NO… OHHHH! RYAN MARX SLAMS THAT KNEE RIGHT AGAINST THE STEEL POST! THAT COULD HAVE SHATTERED A KNEECAP DAMN IT! CLOUD IS SCREAMING IN PAIN AS MARX ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING AND GOES FOR A COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!
And another kick out, but Marx instantly jumps back into the action as he rolls around Cloud and LOCKS IN A KNEEBAR! Cloud begins SCREAMING in pain once more, trying to roll herself out of the predicament she’s in but to no avail! Cloud tries to drag herself towards the bottom rope but every time she attempts, Ryan Marx pulls on that injured knee more and more to prevent it! Cloud might have to tap out here! OH WAIT! Cloud gets her other leg free! She begins to kick Marx in the face over and over with that free leg until he releases the hold! But how much did that hold take out of Cloud?! Regardless of this fact, both competitors are back to their feet! Cloud limps forward for a spinning backhand!! It connects! Cloud takes a moment, shakes that injured leg of hers, before running the ropes! …..aaaand she drops to the mat. That knee has definitely given out. This one is just about over you’d think.
And now Ryan Marx has recovered from that spinning backhand, and he begins to stomp at that knee again! Marx can end this at anytime but I think he wants to punish Cloud, and send the entire Empire brand a MESSAGE! Marx lifts that injured leg of Cloud’s up in the air, and IS LOCKING IN THE FIGURE-FOUR LEGLOCK! THE FIGURE-FOUR LEGLOCK IS IN AND CLOUD ONCE AGAIN IS FACING DEFEAT! IS THIS THE END OF STEPHANIE MATSUDA, AND EMPIRE’S HOPES AND DREAMS OF GAINING THE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP?! Cloud however is recognizing this situation she’s in and is quickly pulling herself to the bottom rope to prevent any further damage to that already busted knee! SHE REACHES THE BOTTOM ROPE! The referee begins the count but Marx releases the hold but he is, however, incredibly frustrated right now. All Marx needs to do to end this match up is successfully hit one big move and that’ll be all she wrote! Cloud’s body is dangling over the apron as Marx sits in the middle of the ring trying to plot his next move. Marx slowly rises back to his feet and grabs Cloud by both feet. But what’s this now?! He’s making attempts to pull Cloud back into the center of the ring, but is struggling. It seems like Cloud is holding on to something. With each pull, there is no effect. Finally, Marx with one HUGE tug brings Cloud back under the ropes and in the ring and… WAIT WHAT?!
CLOUD HAS A MIRROR! CLOUD PUTS THE MIRROR RIGHT INTO MARX’S FACE AND RYAN MARX JUMPS IN FEAR! Ryan Marx falls to the mat and begins to quickly back himself into a corner as Cloud crawls on her knees towards Marx, trying to get the champion to look at his own reflection! Ryan Marx HATES mirrors, hence why he’s doing his best to avoid eye contact with it! Cloud continues to move the mirror in the direction Marx’s head is going, and the champion is losing it! Ryan Marx manages to kick the mirror out of Cloud’s grip and it falls to the outside of the ring, AND CLOUD NAILS THE CHAMPION WITH A STIFF ELBOW RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD! THAT OUGHTA MAKE HIM DROWSY FOR A FEW MOMENTS WHILE CLOUD TAKES A LITTLE TIME TO RECOVER! Cloud gets to her feet and limps to the opposite corner. She lets out a huge roar as the crowd gets behind her, before slowly running forward for a CANNONBALL!!! IT CONNECTS! Ryan Marx rolls forward onto his back as Cloud hooks the leg for a cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!
And Ryan Marx gets a shoulder up at two!
Honestly, smart strategy by Stephanie before with that mirror. Did she strategically place it under the ring for this match? She must have, right? If she did, it really turned this match around for her, but she is still favoring that injured knee of hers. Both competitors now slowly get back up to a vertical base. The two have really brought the fight to each other so far – Marx maybe a little more than Cloud – but the challenger is looking to take control right now despite have the odds against her! Cloud with a kick to the gut of Marx, before setting the champion up for a NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! SHE LIFTS… BUT MARX WITH A COUNTER AS HE DELIVERS A HARD FOREARM STRIKE IN MID AIR! WOW! Marx drops back to his feet and… OH NO… FALL OF MAN!!! FALL OF MAN!!! THE FALLAWAY SLAM TO CLOUD, AND CLOUD IS SENT THROUGH THE SECOND AND THIRD ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! My lord! Just when we think Cloud is about to take control, Ryan Marx proves once again why he has been the guy to beat since Pain For Pride X with an excellent reversal in a not so excellent predicament! Cloud is ONCE AGAIN clutching at her knee, as Ryan Marx begins to tell the referee to count her out! And so the count begins now…
Referee: ONE!!! … TWO!!! … THREE!!! …
Cloud is beginning to reel, but it’s not looking good. She continues to lift her head up but the wind has been taken out of her from that fall to the outside!
Referee: FOUR!!! … FIVE!!!
Cloud slowly rolls over onto her stomach…
Referee: …SIX!!! …
Cloud begins to crawl towards the ring now, grabbing a hold of the steel ring post in an attempt to aid her into getting her back to her feet!
Referee: SEVEN!!! … EIGHT!!!
Cloud is back to her feet now and… WAIT SHE DROPS DOWN TO ONE KNEE!
Referee: NINE!!! ……………… AAAAAAND
Cloud is back up and—
AND JUST IN THE KNICK OF TIME, CLOUD MANAGES TO DIVE UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND BACK INTO THE RING, SAVING HERSELF AND HER CHANCES OF WINNING THE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! RYAN MARX IS BEYOND PISSED RIGHT NOW! HE’S READY TO EXPLODE! Marx begins to take some deep breaths to calm himself down, before beginning to stalk the downed Cloud once again. Cloud slowly gets back to her feet as Marx rushes forward for the I THINK…! The elbow smash followed by the european uppercut, that sends Cloud in a daze. Is Marx going to follow it up?! …THEREFORE I AM!!! THE SUPERKICK IS… WAIT… NO!!! CLOUD DUCKS UNDER THE ATTEMPTED SUPERKICK… CLOUD O’CLOCK!!!!! THE DISCUS FOREARM CONNECTS PERFECTLY ON RYAN MARX! MARX DROPS TO THE MAT IN A HEAP, AND CLOUD COLLAPSES ON TOP OF HIM! OH WAIT, IT’S A PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!–
AND RYAN MARX JUST GETS HIS SHOULDER UP IN TIME! OH MAN! THIS MATCH IS BEGINNING TO COME TO THE FRUITION OF ITS HYPE A BIT LATER THAN EXPECTED! IS STEPHANIE MATSUDA ABOUT TO OVERCOME SOME CRAZY ODDS RIGHT NOW?! Cloud, bad knee and all, rolls out to the apron while Marx remains motionless in the ring! Cloud begins to crawl herself towards the corner before lifting herself up to the top rope on her one good leg! Cloud slowly rises as she struggles to balance on the top rope, but still with the skill manages to do so anyway! What’s she got in mind right now?! For Cloud’s sake, I hope whatever she is about to do works, otherwise it’s going to spell trouble for her! Cloud dives… CLOUD 9!!! THE CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR AND… OH MY GOD NO! RYAN MARX ROLLS OUT OF HARM’S WAY! LOOK OUT!
HOLD ON!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! CLOUD LANDS ON HER FEET AMAZINGLY IN MID-AIR AND… OOP, NOPE!! THAT INJURED KNEE GIVES OUT AS SHE LANDS ON HER FEET AND SHE DROPS TO THE MAT ONCE AGAIN! Cloud is SCREAMING in pain, almost being brought to tears, but the effort she is putting into this match right now is A1. However, that might have just spelled the beginning of the end, as Marx is sitting up against the bottom rope with a smirk on his face. Ryan Marx uses the ropes to help him get back to his feet, before limping over to Cloud and lifting her up to her feet too. Marx lifts Cloud up into a vertical suplex position. I think we all know what’s about to happen now. The STRENGTH of Ryan Marx as he holds her up in the air for an extended period of time. Ryan drops her into NEW HEIGHTS—
NO!!!! WHAT IN THE WORLD?! CLOUD WITH HER GOOD LEG KNEES MARX RIGHT INTO THE TEMPLE AND CLOUD DROPS BEHIND THE CHAMPION! THE CROWD REACT POSITIVELY TO THAT! CLOUD WRAPS RYAN MARX INTO A STRAIGHTJACKET POSITION… CLOUD CITY!!! CLOUD CITY!!! THE STRAIGHTJACKET GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!! HOW IN GOD’S NAME DID STEPHANIE MANAGE TO PULL THAT OFF?! CLOUD DOES NOT RELEASE THE HOLD THOUGH AS SHE BRIDGES FOR A PIN!! OH MY LORD!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!–
NOOOO!! RYAN MARX GETS HIS SHOULDERS OFF THE MAT AND FLIPS BACK ONTO HIS STOMACH, SUCCESSFULLY BREAKING FROM THAT BRIDGE! THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN CLOUD’S ONLY HOPE AND CHANCE OF WINNING THAT CHAMPIONSHIP HERE TONIGHT AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION! I don’t think Ryan Marx knows where he is right now, but Cloud certainly does! She’s back out onto the apron, and is hurrying back up to the top rope with her one good leg! The crowd are on their feet! What a scene! Cloud is looking to waste no time now like she did earlier! Cloud jumps… twists… turns… CLOUD 9!!!! SHE HITS IT THIS TIME!!! WAIT… CLOUD IS HURT?! OHHHH RYAN MARX GOT HIS KNEES UP JUST IN TIME!! RYAN MARX GOT HIS KNEES UP JUST IN TIME!! EVERY SINGLE TIME CLOUD HAS GOTTEN OFFENCE IN, THE CHAMPION HAS FIGURED OUT HOW TO COUNTER IT INTO HIS OWN FAVOR! Cloud has flipped forward off of those knees of Marx, and Marx rolls forward… INVERSE THEORY!!! THE INVERSE THEORY IS LOCKED IN BY RYAN MARX! MARX HAS THE STRETCH MUFFLER IN ON THAT INJURED KNEE OF CLOUD AND SHE IS SCREAAAAAMING IN ANGUISH!! IT’S ALMOST LIKE SHE’S BEING TORTURED RIGHT NOW, AS TEARS BEGIN TO FILL HER EYES FROM THE INTENSE PAIN! RYAN MARX RISES TO HIS FEET TO ADD MORE PRESSURE TO THE MOVE. OH MY LORD!! HOLY SHIT!! RYAN MARX BEGINS TO STOMP AWAY AT THE FACE OF CLOUD REPEATEDLY! JESUS THOSE STOMPS ARE DEADLY!!! THIS ONE IS OVER! CALL IT A MATCH! RYAN MARX IS WINNING!
HOLD ON!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! CLOUD SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, ROLLS HERSELF FORWARD AND SEND RYAN MARX CHEST FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! HOW IN GOD’S GREEN EARTH IS SHE STILL IN THIS?! MARX COMES STUMBLING BACK AND CLOUD PULLS HIM DOWN FOR A ROLL UP ATTEMPT! IT’S A PIN!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!
MARX KICKS OUT! BOTH INDIVIDUALS ARE BACK TO THEIR FEET! CLOUD RUNS AT MARX FOR ANOTHER CLOUD O’CLOCK!!! OHHHHHHH NO! RYAN MARX CATCHES CLOUD IN MID AIR… FALL OF MAN!!! THE FALL OF MAN CONNECTS AGAIN BUT THIS TIME CLOUD LANDS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! THERE’S NO ESCAPE NOW! THERE’S NO SILVER LINING! RYAN MARX IS ABOUT TO RETAIN THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP AS HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR A COVER!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
IT’S OVER! RYAN MARX IS STILL … THE … NOOOO!!!! YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW! CLOUD LIFTS THAT RIGHT SHOULDER OFF OF THE CANVAS AND IT ENRAGES RYAN MARX TO NO END! RYAN MARX KICKS THE BOTTOM ROPE OUT OF FRUSTRATION, BUT I THINK EVEN HE KNOWS HE CAN’T LET THIS ONE GET OUT OF CONTROL! RYAN MARX IMMEDIATELY LIFTS CLOUD BACK UP BEFORE SITTING HER UP ONTO THE TOP ROPE IN THE CORNER THERE! HE LIFTS CLOUD ONTO HER SHOULDERS. OH NO HE’S LOOKING FOR THE IVORY TOWER ISN’T HE?! MARX IS LOOKING FOR THAT ELECTRIC CHAIR DRIVER THAT HAS PUT AWAY SO MANY OPPONENTS IN THE PAST! …OH HOLD ON!!! WHAT ON EARTH!? CLOUD SOMEHOW MANAGES TO GRAB MARX’S LEFT LEG JUST AS HE TRIES TO SLAM HER DOWN AND TRIPS HIM FORWARD! OHHHH!!! OHHHH!!! CLOUD IS LOOKING TO LOCK IN BLASIAN SUNRISE!! BLASIAN SUNRISE!!! SHE’S GOT IT IN NOW! SHE HAS IT LOCKED IN! CLOUD PULLS AT THAT LEG LEFT WITH ALL HER MIGHT! MARX TRIES AS HARD AS HE CAN TO DRAG HIMSELF TOWARDS THE ROPES BUT CLOUD HAS THAT MOVE LOCKED IN AND LOCKED IN TIGHT! MARX MIGHT HAVE TO TAP… MARX… MAAAAAARX! HE SLAMS HIS HAND DOWN ON THE MAT, BUT NOOOO! HE LIFTS HIMSELF UP BY HIS HANDS TO TRY AND RELIEVE PRESSURE, BUT CLOUD GROUNDS HIM ONCE MORE AND KEEPS THE MOVE LOCKED IN!
I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS! CLOUD IS ABOUT TO DO WHAT VOLTAGE AND DYNASTY COULD NOT! CLOUD IS ABOUT TO BRING THE OPENWEIGHT TITLE HOME TO EMPIRE! SHE… WAIT A MINUTE! WHAT IS MARX DOING?! HE’S GOT THE REFEREE BY THE SHIRT! WHAT THE HELL?! HE PULLS THE REFEREE FORWARD INTO CLOUD! OH MY GOD! THE FORCE MADE CLOUD RELEASE THE HOLD! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! MARX SURVIVED THE FACE OF DEFEAT JUST THEN, AS HE CRAWLS TO ONE OF THE CORNERS HOLDING THAT LEFT LEG IN PAIN!
Cloud is down but she’s not out! Cloud goes towards Marx and…
Referee (off-mic): NOPE, I’M ENDING THIS! RYAN MARX HAS BEEN DISQUALIFIED!
Cloud (off-mic): NO! WAIT NO, NO! DON’T CALL FOR THE BELL!
Referee (off-mic): I’m sorry, Steph. It’s over.
Cloud (off-mic): Ref… this is the last time anybody’s ever gonna get a chance at that belt as long as he’s the champion. Do NOT end this! I can finish this off!
Referee (off-mic): …Well, I-
Cloud (off-mic): Seriously! Do NOT end it!
Referee (off-mic): …….alright, CONTINUE!
AND THE MATCH IS STILL ON! THE REFEREE WAS ABOUT TO DISQUALIFY THE CHAMPION AFTER WHAT HE DID. Cloud pushes the referee out of the way after begging him not to end it and makes his way back over to Marx! WAIT!!! MARX GRABS CLOUD BY THAT INJURED LEG AND LOCKS IN THE INVERSE THEORY ONCE AGAIN!! HE WALKS CLOUD INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING! SHE HAS NOWHERE TO GO, BUT CLOUD IS REFUSING TO TAP! CLOUD DOES HER BEST TO ROLL OUT OF IT BUT RYAN MARX HAS IT HELD IN TIGHT! OHHH NO NOT AGAIN! NOT AGAIN! MARX STOMPS ON CLOUD’S HEAD REPEATEDLY AND HE DOESN’T STOP! HE DOES NOT STOP! SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, TEN, ELEVEN… TWELVE?! I’M STARTING TO LOSE COUNT! OH MY GOD STOP THIS NOW REF! STOP IT! WE CAN SEE SOME BLOOD ON THE CANVAS RIGHT UNDER CLOUD’S FACE!! IT’S DONE! THE REFEREE IS CALLING FOR THE BELL! IT’S OVER! MARX RETAINS!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Tempest” by Deftones plays to a disappointed reaction from the crowd as the referee hands Ryan Marx the Openweight Title.)
Ring Announcer: The winner of the match via knockout… AAAAAAAAAAAND STILL! THE EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION… RYYYAAAAAAANNN MAAAAAAAAARRXX!!!
Do I approve of the way Ryan Marx won this match? No, not at all, but there’s no denying he put on one HELL of a performance. And now, Ryan Marx now has the option to relinquish his belt and challenge the EAW Champion!
And we got to give credit to Stephanie Matsuda for probably the best performance out of any of Marx’s challengers for that Openweight Title! She ALMOST had it so many times, and she never once gave up! In fact, it took a knockout victory from Marx to put Cloud away in the end! As the referee and a couple of ringside doctors check on Cloud, we have to say a big congratulations to Ryan Marx! STILL the Openweight Champion!
(Ryan Marx holds his title over the downed Cloud who is just starting to come to as we fade to black.)

(The crowd erupts with cheers in the background)
Drake: It’s about that time! I literally cannot contain myself, Pierre! TJ and HBG in the SAME match in the main event! Take me away! I can die happily!
Pierre: Well, under these circumstances, I wouldn’t be quite so happy, because there’s no doubt they, along with four other hungry competitors, are going to be out for blood in the most demonic structure in EAW History. All six athletes have their reasons – they have their individual roads that brought them here, and it all culminates tonight!

(Ominous music begins to play as the camera transitions to the Extreme Elimination Chamber structure slowly descending, while the lights in US Bank Stadium dim)
Pierre: Only a couple months ago, we witnessed six men absolutely demolish one another within the confines of a No Way Out structure, but this… This contest happens to be the original, known for shortening careers and lives alike. We’ve witnessed three Extreme Elimination Chambers here tonight, and each and every one has left us all in shock and awe, as it does virtually every single time we see it.
Drake: I love it! I regret not being able to compete inside one of these things! Looks like a good time! Hexa-gun thrives inside of these things! We’re as Extreme as it gets, Pierre!
Pierre: Regardless, you can only imagine what’s going through the minds of each competitor as they await for their time to come in this hellacious match.
(The camera cuts to the Ring Announcer standing in the center of the ring as the Chamber structure finishes its descent. All of the lights return to normal as the crowd once again cheers)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Announcer: The following contest…. IS AN EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER…. AND IT IS FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING CHAMPIIIIOOOONNNSSSHHHHIIIPPPP!!!!…..
(“Veni Vidi Vici” by contRoVersy plays all throughout US Bank Stadium as a shower of sparks rains down upon the stage before Tiberius IV slowly makes his way through them, dressed up in a Komodo Dragon headdress, black and gold attire, the EAW Championship around his waist, and a golden quarterstaff in his right hand as he makes his way towards the ring)
Announcer: First, making his way towards the ring, representing The Triumvirate!…. Hailing from Gaia!….. He weighed in tonight at 213 Pounds!…. HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW CHAMPION…. “THE KOMODO DRAGON”, TIIIIIIIIIBBBBBBEEEEERRRRRRRRIIIIIIUUUUUUSSSSSS IV!!!…..
Drake: PRAISE BE! THE KING HAS RETURNED! NOBODY IN THIS ENTIRE GODDAMN STADIUM, IN THIS CITY, IN THIS STATE, COUNTRY, CONTINENT, OR WORLD HAVE ANY RIGHT TO DISRESPECT THIS MAN! HE HAS PROVEN FOR MONTHS THAT HE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST MAN TO HAVE EVER GRACED THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP! THROUGH EVERYTHING HE HAS OVERCOME! HE REIGNS OVER SHOWDOWN WITH AN IRON FIST, AND TONIGHT MAY BE NO DIFFERENT! HE’S NOT BACKING DOWN! HE’S GOING TO TAKE THAT QUARTERSTAFF AND COLLECTIVELY SHOVE IT UP THE ASSES OF FOUR OTHER COMPETITORS WHILE HBG CONTINUES TO BE GREAT!
(“Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana plays all throughout US Bank Stadium as Diamond Cage slowly makes his way out to the stage, dressed in torn jeans and a zipped up black leather jacket, raising the barbed wire baseball bat in his hand up in the air before making his way towards the ring)
Announcer: Next, making his way towards the ring!…. Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!…. He weighed in tonight at 225 Pounds!…. THIS IS “EXPLICIT CONTENT”, DIAMOND CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGEEEEEE!!!….
Pierre: Well, despite how confident you may be in the Champion, it’s men like Diamond Cage that truly beg to differ. He’s been fighting tooth and nail with The Triumvirate since Pain For Pride, and it doesn’t seem like he intends to stop until he completely eradicates them, at whatever cost. Not only is he armed with that terrifying barbed wire baseball bat gifted to him by Brian Daniels, but he’s got plenty of experience as well, having WON an Extreme Elimination Chamber for the EAW Championship no less a few years ago.
(“Crown of Thorns” by Rakaa plays all throughout US Bank Stadium as Prince of Phenomenal confidently makes his way out to the stage in silver and blue attire with a hooded jacket on and the National Elite Championship around his waist, carrying a 10 foot ladder his way towards the ring)
Announcer: Next, making his way towards the ring!…. Hailing from Miami Beach, Florida!…. He weighed in tonight at 215 Pounds!…. HE IS THE REIGNING NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION…. THIS IS THE PRINCE! OF!! PHHHHHEEEEEENNNNNNNOOOOOMMMMEEENNNAAALLLLL!!!…..
Drake: Can that Goddamn ladder even fit on a pod? Whatever, he’s no Tiberius or HBG, but I’ve gotta give him credit where credit is due. All of his flippy shit has done him a lot of good, because not only is he the reigning National Elite Champ, but he EARNED a shot at the EAW Championship by retaining that very Title in an Elimination Chamber a few weeks back! He’s more recently experienced in this kind of match than anyone else, not to mention he’s been here before at Road To Redemption, so I suppose that could go a long way. If he manages to not kill himself during a 1080 corkscrew triple moonsault or something, I think he might do pretty well!
(“I Hope You Suffer” by AFI plays all throughout US Bank Stadium as Theron Nikolas makes his way out to the stage in black attire, a fur coat, and sunglasses on as he carries along an umbrella customized and covered in shards of glass and thumbtacks, making his way towards the ring)
Announcer: Next, making his way towards the ring!…. Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!…. He weighed in tonight at 195 Pounds!…. THIS IS “NO LOVE”, THERON NIIIIIIIIIIKKKKKKKKKOOOOOOOLLLLLAAAAASSSSSS!!!….
Pierre: Of all the people in this contest, this man, Theron Nikolas, may have been dealt the most difficult hand of them all since riding high at Pain For Pride, winning the 24/7 Contract Battle Royal. Since then, he’s been betrayed by his former King, Tiberius IV, and sought redemption, looking to finally dethrone Tiberius and take the EAW Championship he’s been fighting towards for months. He may very well make that dream a reality tonight.
(Tiberius, Theron, POP, and Diamond Cage are all secured in the Chamber pods)
Drake: Looks like we’ve got those four taken care of, so unless you’re a little slow, it’s safe to say who the two starting this contest is gonna be…
(“Rise Up” by Drowning Pool plays all throughout US Bank Stadium as a determined Rex McAllister makes his way out to the stage, dressed in black and white attire, making his way towards the ring)
Announcer: Next, making his way towards the ring!…. Hailing from Sea Isle, New Jersey!…. He weighed in tonight at 238 Pounds!…. THIS IS REX MCAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIISSSSSTTTTTTEEEERRRRR!!!….
Drake: Uhhhh, I’m confused, is the weapon he’s carrying just REALLY small, or what? I don’t see anything…
Pierre: From the looks of it, unless he’s hiding something, it doesn’t appear that Rex McAllister is coming in with a weapon! That could very well be a bad idea, but I’m not sure…
Drake: Is he retarded? Like come on! You don’t walk into a war with just your fists because you want people to know you’ve got guts! Does he want people to just assume his only weapons are his balls of steel? Jesus Christ!
Pierre: Well he looks as determined as ever, and he’s worked his way towards another opportunity at the EAW Championship for months now, so if this is how he chooses to compete in this, so be it.
(“Square Hammer” by Ghost plays all throughout US Bank Stadium as a focused Heart Break Gal makes her way out to the stage, dressed in red and white attire with a black trench coat on, carrying along a trashcan filled with a variety of weapons as she makes her way towards the ring)
Drake: YES! HERE SHE COMES, PIERRE!
Announcer: Lastly, making her way towards the ring!…. Hailing from Dallas, Texas!…. She weighed in at 135 Pounds!…. SHE IS “THE CONSIGLIERE”….. THIS IS THE HEART! BREAK!! GAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!…..
Drake: SHUT THE HELL UP, PIERRE, JUST SHUT THE HELL UP! DON’T RUIN THIS FOR ME! THE SECOND MEMBER OF HEXA-GUN IN THIS CONTEST! I CAN’T FREAKIN WAIT! SHE’S BEEN FIGHTING AN UPHILL BATTLE EVER SINCE HER GLORIOUS RETURN AND SHE’S PROVEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN WHY SHE’S THE ABSOLUTE BEST! WE ALREADY SAW HER CARRY CAMERON ELLA AVA TO WINNING THE EAW TAG TEAM GRAND PRIX! SHE MIGHT BE ABLE TO PULL OFF SOMETHING MASSIVE TONIGHT! SHE AND TIBERIUS COULD WALK OUT OF HERE AS CO-EAW CHAMPIONS, PIERRE!
Pierre: I… I’m not so sure about that…
Drake: DON’T RUIN THIS FOR ME!
(The Heart Break Gal takes off her trench coat and enters the Chamber and ring with her trashcan full of weapons, staring down with Rex McAllister from across the ring)
Drake: The time has finally come! I’m almost there!
Pierre: And plenty of history between these two that will be starting it out, you can’t help but wonder if HBG is still hurting from that battle she went through in the Grand Prix Finals, but we’re about to find out! Tiberius, Theron, Cage, and POP all looking on from their respective Chambers while the outside Officials lock up the structure!
(HBG and Rex stare down as the Referee finally calls for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre: This EAW Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber is finally underway here and this Minneapolis crowd is every bit as ready for it as we are! They’re on their feet as Rex and the Heart Break Gal stare down! Rex showing he doesn’t have any weapons – I think he’s hoping HBG humors him… She’s on the opposite side of the spectrum here with several weapons at her disposal as she looks them over… Rex visibly wanting to do this the old fashioned way… HBG PULLS OUT A KENDO STICK! I DON’T THINK SHE’S INTERESTED! Rex should have known that wasn’t happening! HBG pointing that kendo stick right at him! She wants payback for Dia Del Diablo and Territorial Invasion! HOLD ON–HBG THROWS THE KENDO STICK TO REX?!
Drake: REX CATCHES IT AS HBG RUSHES IN WITH A BIG RUNNING DROPKICK!! BRILLIANT! REX GOES CRASHING INTO THE NEARBY CORNER OF THE RING! SHE’S BACK ON HER FEET AS REX STRUGGLES TO PULL HIMSELF TOGETHER IN TIME BEFORE HE’S MET WITH A FLURRY OF SHOTS FROM AN ANGRY HEART BREAK GAL! SHE’S LAYING INTO HIM WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS, TRAPPED IN THAT CORNER! REX IS DOING ALL HE CAN TO DEFEND HIMSELF HERE! HE MANAGES TO OVERPOWER HBG, FORCING HER OUT OF THE CORNER! HBG wastes no time charging back in! She’s met with a boot to the mouth from Rex! Rex has a chance to turn things around! He climbs up on the middle rope, looking for something big! HBG BARRELS TOWARDS HIM ONCE MORE AND CONNECTS WITH A LOUD JUMPING ENZUIGIRI!! Rex is dazed! He’s out of it!
Pierre: I got a feeling she has something big in mind! HBG’s got a devilish look on her face as she gets back up! She charges in! Running forearm connects square to the face of Rex! Another shot from HBG! And another! HBG’s climbing! Rex is in a bad, bad way! LOOKING FOR A SUPERPLEX!! SHE’S GOT HIM! NO–Rex is fighting! He’s not letting it go through! Rex with a hard shot to the ribs of HBG! Another shot connects! HBG is doing all she can to overpower him, but it’s not enough! Rex escapes from her grasp! He nails HBG with a forearm! REX SLIPS THROUGH THE LEGS OF HBG, PULLING HER ONTO HIS SHOULDERS?! HE’S CHARGING OUT OF THE CORNER WITH HBG IN HIS GRASP! LOOK OUT!! HE LAUNCHES THE HEART BREAK GAL INTO HER TRASHCAN FULL OF WEAPONS WITH A RUNNING SHEER DROP POWERBOMB!!! HBG COULD BE INJURED AFTER THAT! SHE LANDED HARD, AND THE SHEER SPEED SHE WAS LAUNCHED AT!
Drake: I don’t like this, Pierre! Whatever the Hell Rex just did, he cheated! Come on, HBG! Rex realizes he’s in control! HBG needs to do something, damn it! Look at the sick expression on Rex’s face as he gets back to his feet! Oh no… No, he’s looking at those weapons that spilled out! He grabs a cooking sheet! Damn it! Someone stop him! Do something, TJ! So much for no weapons! Rex, you Goddamn hypocrite! He’s mocking HBG with the cooking sheet in hand! HBG’s doing all she can to get back up… REX SWINGS THE COOKING SHEET DOWN ONTO HER SKULL AS SHE GETS TO HER KNEES! DAMN IT! HE SWINGS THAT COOKING SHEET INTO HER AGAIN! AND AGAIN! Rex finally, mercifully, throws the cooking sheet aside! Rex is signaling for something! Come on, HBG, you gotta get up!
Pierre: She’s in a bad way here! Rex clutches HBG by her hair, dragging her up! You can see the hate in his eyes that he has for this woman! He’s got her! HBG’s fighting it! She nails Rex with a knee to the mid-section! Another knee! She escapes his grasp and nails him with a big forearm! Rex is backpedaling! HBG CHARGES! SHE’S CAUGHT–BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX SENDS HBG CRASHING HARD INTO THE NEARBY CORNER!! HBG IS IN TROUBLE HERE! She’s already been exhausted from a whole different match she had to go through and Rex knows it! Everyone has their limit! Rex is back up, dragging HBG to her feet by her hair once again! He pulls her in… HE’S LOOKING TO FINISH THE JOB!! REX RUNS OFF THE ROPES–THE REX EFFECT!!!!
Drake: NO–HBG HAD IT SCOUTED AS SHE FORCED REX OFF, SENDING HIM CRASHING DOWN TO THE STEEL FLOOR ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!! HBG SAVES HERSELF THERE! Rex doesn’t look finished just yet! HBG is still hurting, trying to recuperate for a moment, but Rex isn’t giving her a chance to breathe! He’s already back on his feet as he makes his way over to the nearby corner! HBG has no idea! Turn around! REX IS CLIMBING UP! HE’S PERCHED–HBG GRABS THAT TRASHCAN!! SHE LAUNCHES IT RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF REX MCALLISTER ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS HE GOES CRASHING BACK DOWN TO THE STEEL PANELING FLOOR!!
(The camera cuts to an overhead view of the Elimination Chamber as a light sporadically jumps between the occupied pods before finally stopping)
Pierre: AND IT LANDS ON THERON NIKOLAS! HE’S THE FIRST MAN OF THE FOUR TO JOIN IN THIS CONTEST AS HIS POD OPENS UP! HE’S GOT THAT SADISTIC UMBRELLA IN HIS HANDS AS HE GOES OUT! The Heart Break Gal is completely focused on Rex McAllister right now! She’s climbing up to the top turnbuckle with him in his sights! Hold on! She changes her focus as a determined Theron enters the ring! HBG LEAPS STRAIGHT TOWARDS THERON!! SHE’S MET WITH THAT LETHAL UMBRELLA TO THE GUT IN MID-AIR!! THE GLASS AND THUMBTACKS AND SHEER FORCE OF THE UMBRELLA NAILING HER IN THE MID-SECTION AS SHE CRASHES HARD ON THE CANVAS!! THERON IMMEDIATELY SWINGS THAT UMBRELLA DOWN INTO THE SPINE OF HBG NOW!! SHE’S IN PAIN! SHE’S IN SERIOUS PAIN!
Drake: I CAN’T TAKE THIS, PIERRE! THIS IS SICK! NO–HOLD ON! HE THROWS THE UMBRELLA ASIDE? NO, DON’T YOU DO IT! THERON GRABS THE WRIST OF HBG, DRAGGING HER UP!! HE’S GOT HER IN HIS GRASP! DAMN IT, NO! WRIST LOCK TRANSITIONED–
Pierre: TOUCH OF HEROOOOINNNNEEEE!!!!
Drake: SHE DUCKS IT!! HBG DUCKS THE TOUCH OF HEROINE AND CATCHES THERON FROM BEHIND WITH A WAIST LOCK! GERMAN SUPLEX!!! A BEAUTIFUL BRIDGING GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING AS HBG SEEKS A PIN WITH IT!

HESITATION DROPKICK INTO THAT TRASHCAN AND INTO THE FACE OF THE HEART BREAK GAL!!!
Drake: NOOOOOO!! DAMN IT, NO! SOMEONE CHECK ON HBG! THERON MAY BE LOOKING TO FINISH HER OFF! HE–REX WITH A KENDO STICK TO THE SPINE OF THERON FROM BEHIND! Yes! Oh thank God! A damaged Theron turns around! AND HE EATS A SHOT TO THE FACE WITH THAT KENDO STICK!! A THIRD CONSECUTIVE SHOT TO THE FACE OF THERON NIKOLAS FROM REX WITH THAT STICK! REX THROWS THE KENDO STICK ASIDE AS THERON BACKPEDALS INTO THE ROPES! REX CHARGES! A BIG LARIAT CONNECTS, SENDING THERON OVER AND CRASHING ONTO THE STEEL ON THE OUTSIDE!!
Pierre: Rex doesn’t even look like he has any intention of pursuing Theron after that! I think he just wanted him out of the ring! Rex’s focus is RIGHT back on the damaged Heart Break Gal in the corner! He kicks away that trashcan and wastes no time stomping away into the trapped HBG! Rex looks like he would love nothing more than to get rid of her in this contest! HBG can barely even defend herself here! Rex drags her up! Rex just laying into HBG with rapid lefts and rights! A BIG elbow smash connects to HBG! She’s in a bad, bad way right now! Rex could be looking for something big of his own as he drags her up, placing HBG on the top turnbuckle… Rex is climbing! He may be looking for some payback from earlier as HBG tried this on him! HE’S GOT HER! HBG IS FIGHTING! SHE’S GOT LIFE LEFT IN HER! REX ISN’T HAVING IT AS HE NAILS HER WITH CLUBBING BLOWS! HOLD ON!

Drake: Rex with shots down into the skull of Theron! Theron’s losing his balance! They’ve go their backs turned to HBG as she gets some balance on the top…. HBG LEAPS!!! SHE LANDS ON THE SHOULDERS OF REX–REVERSE HURRICANRANA SENDS REX DOWN AND INTO A REVERSE HURRICANRANA OF HIS OWN ON THERON NIKOLAS SIMULTANEOUSLY!!!! HOLY HELL! WHAT A COMBINATION! ALL THREE OF THEM ARE DOWN! NOBODY’S LEFT STANDING AFTER THAT! BOTH REX AND THERON LANDED SQUARE ON THEIR HEADS WITH THAT! THIS COULD BE ANYONE’S GAME! HBG IS STILL IN A LOT OF PAIN FROM EARLIER, BUT SHE’S THE ONLY ONE SHOWING ANY SIGNS OF LIFE HERE! SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE! Some–
(The camera cuts to an overhead view of the Elimination Chamber as a light sporadically jumps between the occupied pods before finally stopping)
Pierre: AND IT’S TIBERIUS IV!! THE EAW CHAMPION HIMSELF HAS ENTERED THE CONTEST AS HIS POD IS OPENED! He looks hesitant to join in, but I think he just realized what kind of opportunity he has with Theron, Rex, and HBG all down and hurt in the ring! Tiberius all of a sudden looking as nonchalant as ever as he exits his pod! He’s got that quarterstaff of his in hand as he casually makes his way inside the ring, fresh as a daisy! He’s got his pick of literally any one of these competitors! It looks as though his eyes are laser focused on the Heart Break Gal as she’s the first to potentially get back up! TIBERIUS RUSHES IN! HE DRIVES THE END OF THAT QUARTERSTAFF INTO THE BACK OF HBG!! SHE’S DOWN AS TIBERIUS SWINGS THE QUARTERSTAFF INTO HER SPINE! HE’S NOT DONE AS HE TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO REX, SWINGING THE STAFF DOWN INTO HIS BODY! HE SWINGS IT DOWN INTO THE BODY OF THERON NOW! Tiberius looks like a kid on Christmas right now! He’s having the time of his life punishing all three of these competitors! I think he believes this is just gonna be a walk in the park for him!
Drake: And it could be! Theron and Rex are weak links! I’m sure him going after HBG is just a friendly thing! TJ drops the quarterstaff and grabs a hold of Rex, dragging him up… HE SENDS REX FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND CRASHING TO THE STEEL ON THE OUTSIDE! He’s outta here! TJ turns his attention to Theron and HBG now… He looks like he can’t decide… Theron seems to be the first getting up, so he goes for him! He drags Theron up… AND SENDS HIM OVER THE ROPES NEXT! THERON CRASHES TO THE OUTSIDE! It’s just Tiberius and HBG left in the ring! Nothing like a little bit of friendly competition! I’m sure they’ll turn things around and win this together! I have no doubt, Pierre! No doubt in my mind! It has to happen!
Pierre: Tiberius grabs that quarterstaff again as he makes his way over to HBG… He rolls her onto her back, looking down on her… HE PRESSES THE END OF THAT QUARTERSTAFF INTO HER THROAT! TIBERIUS IS CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF HIS FORMER ALLY IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! HE WANTS PAYBACK FOR THAT FALL HE TOOK TO HER LAST WEEK ON SHOWDOWN! HE’S OUT FOR HER BLOOD! HBG IS DOING ALL SHE CAN TO FIGHT IT, BUT TIBERIUS IS TOO FRESH IN THIS CONTEST WHILE SHE’S TOO EXHAUSTED! TIBERIUS DRIVES THE END OF THAT QUARTERSTAFF INTO THE GUT OF HBG NOW! HE SWINGS IT DOWN INTO HER! AGAIN! AND AGAIN! ABSOLUTELY VICIOUS FROM THE EAW CHAMPION AS HE THROWS THE STAFF ASIDE, GRABBING A HOLD OF HBG! HE’S LOOKING FOR OUR FIRST ELIMINATION IN THIS CONTEST! HE PULLS HER UP FROM BEHIND!! TIBERIUS HAS HER IN AN ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION!! GAME CLINCHER!!!!!
Drake: NO–TIBERIUS STOPS AS HE LOCKS EYES WITH THERON NIKOLAS ON THE OUTSIDE! THERON IS BACK ON HIS FEET AND HE LOOKS NONE TOO HAPPY! YOU BETTER DO SOMETHING, TJ! HBG SPINS HERSELF AROUND–HURRICANRANA AS THERON PULLS THE TOP ROPE DOWN, SENDING TIBERIUS FLYING OVER AND CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE!! HBG MANAGES TO ONCE MORE SAVE HERSELF IN THIS MATCH! TJ is in pain as he struggles to pull himself up! He locks eyes with Theron there on the outside of the ring! Come on! This isn’t right! Tiberius showed him mercy by not immediately eliminating him! THERON IMMEDIATELY NAILS TJ WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE, SENDING TIBERIUS INTO THE CHAMBER WALL!! HE CHARGES! EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! NO! TIBERIUS DUCKS IT! HE ESCAPES AS HE GOES THROUGH THE ROPES AND BACK INTO THE RING! Haha! Too slow, Theron!
Pierre: Tiberius stares down with Theron once more, telling him that isn’t happening! He refuses to let that man get the better of him! THE HEART BREAK GAL FROM BEHIND AS SHE’S GOT THAT QUARTERSTAFF–RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP WITH IT!! HBG HAS COME BACK TO LIFE HERE! SHE’S IN VISIBLE PAIN, BUT SHE DOESN’T CARE! THERON LOOKS ON IN AMUSEMENT AS HBG HAS THAT QUARTERSTAFF IN HAND, SHE’S ON HER KNEES SWINGING AWAY AT TIBERIUS!!! THE EAW CHAMPION IS DOING ALL HE CAN TO GET AWAY! HE ROLLS UNDER THE ROPES TO ESCAPE!! TIBERIUS IS DESPERATE HERE! HE RISES BACK UP… HOLD ON! REX MCALLISTER IS BACK ON HIS FEET, STALKING TIBERIUS! TIBERIUS REALIZES SOMETHING IS WRONG AS HE TURNS AROUND TO EAT AN ELBOW SMASH FROM REX!! TIBERIUS STUMBLES INTO THE ROPES AS REX COMES IN WITH A BIG LARIAT, SENDING HIM BACK INTO THE RING!!! THE EAW CHAMPION IS BACK IN THE RING AS REX AND THERON ENTER IT! THE HEART BREAK GAL, THERON NIKOLAS, AND REX MCALLISTER ALL STAND OVER TIBERIUS IV AS THE CHAMPION REALIZES WHAT KIND OF TROUBLE HE’S IN! HE’S TRYING TO TALK THINGS OVER WITH THEM! I DON’T THINK IT’S GONNA WORK! THEY ALL GO INTO HIM!!!
(The camera cuts to an overhead view of the Elimination Chamber as a light sporadically jumps between the occupied pods before finally stopping)
Drake: THE PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL IS IN! THE POD OPENS UP AS HE JOINS THIS CONTEST WITH THAT GODDAMN 10 FOOT LADDER IN HIS POSSESSION! REX, THERON, AND HBG ARE ALL STILL LAYING INTO TIBERIUS! THEY DON’T EVEN GIVE A DAMN ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE! POP HAS SOMETHING BIG IN MIND AS HE STARTS CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WITH THAT LADDER IN HIS CONTROL! HE AIMS TO TAKEOVER THIS MATCH, AND HE JUST MAY! HE’S PERCHED! POP COMES FLYING IN WITH THAT LADDER!!!
Pierre: REX, HBG, AND THERON ALL SIMULTANEOUSLY MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AS POP COMES CRASHING DOWN INTO TIBERIUS IV WITH THAT LADDER!!!
Drake: NOOOOO!!! YOU IDIOT!
Pierre: POP REALIZES HE JUST COMPLETELY MISSED HIS INTENDED TARGETS AS HE TURNS AROUND!! TRAMP STAMP!!!! POP FALLS THROUGH THE ROPES AND OT THE OUTSIDE AFTER THAT SUPERKICK FROM THE HEART BREAK GAL! SHE’S NOT FINISHED WITH HIM AS SHE PURSUES HIM TO THE OUTSIDE WHILE THERON LOOKS TO FINISH OFF TIBERIUS! NO–REX TURNS HIM AROUND WITH A KICK TO THE GUT! HE PULLS THERON IN!! REX EFFECT!!!! Theron’s able to get out of it, forcing Rex off! Rex charges in! BICYCLE KNEE TO THE INCOMING REX!! REX IS DAZED, BUT HE’S STILL ON HIS FEET! HE SWINGS! THERON WITH A POWERFUL EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! REX GOES REELING INTO THE ROPES! THERON COMES CHARGING! A SECOND EUROPEAN UPPERCUT SENDS REX OVER AND CRASHING HARD TO THE OUTSIDE!! Theron may have gotten rid of Rex in this contest for now as he turns his attention back to Tiberius! Tiberius remains down in the center of the ring after taking that ladder straight to the skull from POP! He’s a sitting duck here! Rex is already stirring! He’s making his way back up as Theron takes notice! It looks like Theron’s gonna try to finish Rex off as he exits to the outside!
Drake: HBG is laying into POP here on the outside, sending him into the chains of the Chamber wall! She’s beating the Hell out of the National Elite Champion! Rex is struggling to get back up! Theron’s ready to pounce… HE CHARGES! ANOTHER RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT CONNECTS AGAINST THAT CHAMBER WALL ON REX!!! HE’S DAZED AND CONFUSED HERE! REX IS DOING LITERALLY ALL HE CAN DO TO STAY UP ON HIS FEET! THERON SENDS HIM INTO THE GLASS OF THE NEARBY EMPTY POD! HE’S GOT A SINISTER LOOK ON HIS FACE! THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET! HE’S BEEN WANTING SOME PAYBACK ON REX FOR A WHILE! THERON MIGHT GET IT AS HE CHARGES WITH ALL HE’S GOT!!!
Pierre: REX SIDESTEPS IT AND SENDS THERON CRASHING THROUGH THE GLASS OF THE POD!!!!! JESUS CHRIST–THERON IS DOWN IN THE SHATTERED REMAINS OF THAT POD!!! HE’S NOT MOVING! TIBERIUS IS STIRRING INSIDE THE RING AS HBG CONTINUES TO LAY INTO POP! SHE PULLS HIM IN! Swinging neckbreaker connects right on that unforgiving steel paneling!! HBG may have some bad intentions here for the National Elite Champion! This crowd is loving every single second of it! She would love to get the first elimination of this contest! HBG sees an opportunity and she aims to seize it as she starts making her way up to the top turnbuckle! She’s climbing up! HBG IS PERCHED AND READY TO FLY! TIBERIUS RUSHES IN! HE’S LAYING INTO HBG! HBG’S DOING ALL SHE CAN TO FIGHT IT! TIBERIUS IS CLIMBING UP THERE WITH HER! THIS IS LOOKING BAD! POP is slowly rising back to his feet! He stumbles over to the corner as HBG and Tiberius continue to go at it up top!
Drake: POP climbing up there now! HBG’s in a bad spot, trying to fight off both of these men! SHE THROWS AN ELBOW BACK INTO THE FACE OF TIBERIUS! A FOREARM TO POP! SHE THROWS ANOTHER ELBOW BACK AS TIBERIUS FALLS OFF!! POP LEAPS OVER HER–SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB TO THE STEEL PANELING ON THE OUTSIDE!!! THE BACK OF HBG’S SKULL BOUNCING OFF OF THE STEEL!! SHE COULD BE OUT! I’M GONNA CRY, PIERRE! THIS ISN’T RIGHT! THIS IS TOO BARBARIC! HBG AND TJ SHOULDN’T HAVE TO DO THIS!
Pierre: Weren’t you the one saying Hexa-gun is as extreme as it gets? POP now climbing back up to the top, looking for something else! Tiberius is back on his feet as he rushes in, nailing POP! HE’S PULLING POP INTO A SUPLEX POSITION! POP is fighting it! Tiberius turns around with POP in his grasp as Rex climbs to the top! POP drives a knee down into the skull of Tiberius! The EAW Champion is doing all he can to keep POP from turning this around as Rex is climbing even HIGHER! He’s going as high as he possibly can! HE’S UP THERE AS TIBERIUS CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE WITH POP! REX LEAPS!!! DIVING CROSSBODY FROM THE TOP OF THE POD CONNECTS INTO POP AND TIBERIUS DOWN BELOW!!!! ALL THREE MEN GO DOWN HARD IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE DOWN!

Drake: I THINK THAT’S ILLEGAL! DISQUALIFY THIS MAN! WHERE THE HELL IS THAT BUM OF A GENERAL MANAGER?! THIS ISN’T RIGHT!
Pierre: I DON’T THINK CAGE GIVES A DAMN AS HE BREAKS HIS WAY OUT OF THE POD WITH THAT TERRIFYING BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT IN HAND! HE IMMEDIATELY GOES TO THE RING, ENTERING IT AS HE STANDS OVER THE DAMAGED TIBERIUS, REX, AND POP! THIS IS BAD! POP IS TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF UP, USING THE ROPES TO AID HIM!

HE’S GOT THAT BARBED WIRE AS POP CONTINUES TO WRITHE IN PAIN! CAGE IS DRAGGING HIMSELF BACK UP! HE SWINGS THE BARBED WIRE DOWN INTO THE BODY OF POP! HE WHIPS POP WITH IT AGAIN! AND AGAIN! CAGE GRABS POP! HE’S GOT HIM IN A CRIPPLER CROSSFACE!!! HE’S WRAPPING THAT BARBED WIRE AROUND THE FACE OF PRINCE OF PHENOMENAL!!!

Announcer: Prince of Phenomenal has been ELIMINATED!!
Drake: Jesus Christ almighty… This guy… Words can’t even describe… He literally… I don’t even know what to say! To make things even worse, Diamond Cage is the only competitor in this match left standing right now! The Heart Break Gal rolls back into the ring, potentially looking for a weapon here… But she’s immediately become the focus of Cage! Get out of there, HBG! Run!
Pierre: WHAT THE HELL?!

JAYWALKER HAS RETURNED AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOT NOTHING SHORT OF REVENGE ON HIS MIND HERE AS HE LAYS INTO DIAMOND CAGE WITH THAT BAT!! SECURITY NOW RUSHING IN HERE TO STOP HIM! JUST LET HIM KILL HIM!
Pierre: We haven’t seen any sight of Jaywalker since Diamond Cage sent him off the stage at Territorial Invasion, but it looks like he’s back and wanted some payback! He may have very well just cost Cage this match! Security now trying to get Jaywalker out of here! He spits at Cage as he’s escorted out! Cage is struggling to get back up… HOLD ON! HE’S PULLING SOMETHING OUT OF HIS BOOT–IS THAT A FORK?! HE’S GOT A FORK HIDDEN IN HIS BOOT AS HE LUNGES TOWARDS JAYWALKER, TRYING TO HIT HIM WITH IT!! HE’S TRYING TO SKEWER JAYWALKER WITH THAT FORK! HOW MANY WEAPONS DOES THIS MAN HAVE ON HIM?! THE HEART BREAK GAL AND TIBERIUS IV BOTH COME IN FROM BEHIND, LAYING INTO CAGE! CAGE IS FIGHTING BACK WITH ALL HE’S GOT!

Announcer: Diamond Cage has been ELIMINATED!!
Pierre: Shocking team work from the former allies of HBG and Tiberius there, working together as a unit to get rid of Diamond Cage in this contest! We are down to four competitors: Tiberius IV, the Heart Break Gal, Rex McAllister, and Theron Nikolas! One of these four will walk out of Minneapolis as the EAW Champion! HBG and Tiberius now – both absolutely exhausted and battered – HBG has taken far more damage than any other competitors, competing in not one but TWO matches here at Road To Redemption and having been through this entire match from the very beginning along with Rex McAllister! Tiberius has taken a good deal of damage as well, having been busted open and still bleeding after taking that barbed wire baseball bat across his face… These two know one another better than anyone else here as they rise back up to their feet, staring down… THEY BOTH MAKE IT ON THEIR FEET!
Drake: DAMN IT–REX MCALLISTER RUSHES IN WITH A RUNNING ELBOW SMASH TO TIBERIUS!! A SUPERKICK FROM THERON NIKOLAS OUT OF NOWHERE CATCHES THE HEART BREAK GAL OFF GUARD! REX GOING IN ON TIBERIUS AS THERON LAYS INTO HBG! THERON STOMPING AWAY AT A DOWNED HBG! Rex grabs that nearby quarterstaff of Tiberius’, looking to put it to use as Tiberius crawls back into the nearest corner! Rex drives it into the throat of Tiberius, looking to choke him out! Theron’s got HBG in the opposite corner now, still stomping away! He grabs her by the hair, dragging her up! HBG’s fighting with all she’s got left, but it doesn’t look to be much! She’s far beyond her limits by this point! Theron and Rex not letting up whatsoever! Come on, HBG! Come on, TJ! THEY SEND TJ AND HBG OUT OF THE CORNERS AND INTO ONE ANOTHER WITH SIMULTANEOUS IRISH WHIPS!
Pierre: THEY MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AND CHARGE INTO THE CORNERS! THEY BOTH CONNECT WITH RUNNING YAKUZA KICKS – TIBERIUS TO THERON AND HBG TO REX!! HEXA-GUN POTENTIALLY ONCE MORE CLICKING IN THIS MATCH AS THEY SEND REX AND THERON OUT OF THE CORNERS THIS TIME! REX AND THERON CRASH INTO ONE ANOTHER! THEY’RE STILL ON THEIR FEET AS TIBERIUS AND HBG COME CHARGING IN! SIMULTANEOUS DROPKICKS CONNECT FROM TIBERIUS AND HBG!! THEY’RE ON A ROLL! I can’t believe what I’m seeing! HBG and Tiberius are legitimately on the same page!
Drake: I’m gonna cry! I’m gonna cry!
Pierre: They lock eyes as HBG and Tiberius get back up to a vertical base… AND THEY NOD TO ONE ANOTHER AS THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET! HEXA-GUN MAY BE ALIVE HERE TONIGHT, IF ONLY FOR A MOMENT AS THEY GET TO WORK! BOTH HBG AND TIBERIUS STOMPING AWAY AT THERON AND REX! THEY GRAB A HOLD OF REX, DRAGGING HIM UP! HBG’S GOT REX IN A DRAGON SUPLEX POSITION! TIBERIUS WITH THE KAMEHAMEHA!!! DOUBLE PALM THRUST TO REX BEFORE HBG HITS A DRAGON SUPLEX ON REX!! WHAT A COMBINATION!! REX ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE AS HBG AND TIBERIUS LOCK EYES ONCE MORE! THEY NOD AGAIN AS THEY TURN THEIR FOCUS BACK TO THERON! THIS IS BAD!
Drake: THIS IS AMAZING, PIERRE! I’VE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY IN MY LIFE! I CAN DIE HAPPILY!
Pierre: TIBERIUS IS SIGNALING FOR SOMETHING! HBG SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND AS SHE GOES TO THE OUTSIDE WHILE REX REMAINS DOWN OUT THERE! SHE’S CLUTCHING THE TOP ROPE! TIBERIUS PULLS THERON UP… HE PICKS HIM UP IN AN ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION!!!
Drake: THEY’RE GOING FOR DRAKE & JONES’ KILLSHOT, PIERRE!!! I CAN’T TAKE IT! DO IT!
Pierre: THERON IS FIGHTING! THERON WITH SHOTS TO THE SKULL OF TIBERIUS!! HBG LEAPS TO THE TOP!!! NO–SHE’S PULLED DOWN BY REX!! HE GRABS HBG AND SENDS HER CRASHING INTO THE CHAMBER WALL!! THERON COUNTERS INTO A REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER ON TIBERIUS IV!!!
Drake: NOOOOO! DAMN IT! NO! THEY WERE SO CLOSE! TJ IS IN TROUBLE! HE’S OUT OF IT! I DON’T LIKE THE LOOK IN THERON’S EYES! I DON’T LIKE IT!
Pierre: THERON NODDING HIS HEAD–HE LOOKS MORE READY THAN EVER FOR THIS! HE’S FINALLY GOT TIBERIUS WHERE HE WANTS HIM! HE’S FINALLY GOT HIM AT HIS MERCY IN AN EAW CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH! HE’S GOT HIM! THERON GRABS TIBERIUS, DRAGGING HIM UP! HE’S CLUTCHING THE WRIST! THERON SENDS HIM OUT… AND PULLS HIM IN!! TOUCH OF HEEEERRRRROOOOOOOOIIIIINNNNNNNN!!!!!! IT CONNECTS!!!! TIBERIUS IS OUT OF IT!! HE’S DONE! THERON HAS TO COVER HIM! HE’S GOING FOR THE COVER!!
Drake: NO–HE’S PULLED AWAY?! REX MCALLISTER PULLS THERON AWAY FROM TIBERIUS, DRAGGING HIM UP WITH CLUBBING BLOWS! HE SENDS THERON CRASHING HARD INTO THE NEARBY RINGPOST IN THE CORNER!! WHAT’S HE DOING?! REX GOES FOR THE PIN ON TIBERIUS! NO!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!!………… TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!………….. THREE!!!
Pierre: TIBERIUS WITH A SHOULDER UP! HE GOT A SHOULDER UP! TIBERIUS IS STILL IN THIS MATCH AND REX CANNOT BELIEVE IT! HE THOUGHT HE HAD THE ELIMINATION! HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO GUARANTEE WE CROWN A NEW EAW CHAMPION!
Drake: He got selfish and tried to steal the pin for himself! He has nobody to blame but himself there! And now you can see that frustration getting to him!
Pierre: Rex is LIVID! He was certain that would be it for Tiberius! He’s driving his fists into the canvas out of sheer frustration, but he’s got to get it together! He needs to focus! He’s got no choice but to keep it going and he looks to do just that as he clutches the hair of Tiberius, trying to drag him up! Tiberius is nothing but dead weight here! He’s looking bad! He’s barely been able to stay alive in this! Rex with as much focus as I’ve ever seen in his eyes! For months he’s began doubting whether or not he can truly get the job done without John Doe! He came here tonight to prove that wrong! He’s got to keep going to do just that! HE PULLS TIBERIUS IN!
Drake: THERON NIKOLAS FROM BEHIND! HE’S BACK IN THIS, LAYING INTO REX WITH ALL HE’S GOT! REX AND THERON BRAWL INTO THE CORNER! THEY’RE COMING AT ONE ANOTHER WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS! REX TAKES ADVANTAGE WITH A KNEE TO THE GUT OF THERON! HE TURNS IT AROUND, PULLING THERON UP ON THE CORNER! HE’S CLIMBING UP THERE! REX HAS A HOLD OF THERON!! SUPERPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE AND ONTO THAT STEEL PANELING!!! JESUS! THE SPINE OF THERON CLASHING WITH THE UNFORGIVING STEEL! REX DEFINITELY TOOK SOME DAMAGE TOO, BUT HE’S STILL MOVING! He’s forcing himself up! He’s got malicious intent on his face right now, I like it! REX WANTS AN ELIMINATION HERE AS HE DRAGS THERON UP! HE PULLS HIM IN!! REX RUNS OFF THE WALL OF THE CHAMBER FOR THE REX EFFECT!!!!
Pierre: THERON SENDS REX OFF AND CRASHING THROUGH THE GLASS OF THE NEARBY POD INSTEAD!!!! THERON NIKOLAS COUNTERS THE REX EFFECT IN A BIG BAD WAY, GIVING REX HIS RECEIPT FROM EARLIER!! THERON DRAGS REX OUT FROM THE SHATTERED REMAINS OF THAT POD! HE’S GOT TO FINISH THIS! THERON STUMBLES OVER TO THE NEARBY CORNER, CLIMBING UP! HE’S UP THERE! THERON IS PERCHED!! HAIL TO THE KING!!!!!! THE DIVING DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP CONNECTS EMPHATICALLY INTO THE BODY OF REX!! THERON GOES FOR THE COVER!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!………. TWO!!!!!!!!!!………. THREE!!!!!!!!!!
Announcer: Rex McAllister has been ELIMINATED!!
Drake: And then there were three! I’m loving this, Pierre! HBG, Tiberius… And Theron, I guess. They need to get rid of him! They need to get him the Hell out of here!
Pierre: Easier said than done, because it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere at the moment – he may be cut up and beaten and bruised, but Theron Nikolas is one of the most resilient men we’ve ever seen in this company, and he aims to prove that here tonight beyond all doubt! Theron’s got his eyes focused back in the ring on a still down Tiberius IV! He aims to finish what he started earlier before Rex interrupted as he enters the ring! Theron favoring that back after taking a superplex down to the outside floor, but he knows he has to work through it!
Drake: Right now Tiberius is doing all he can to recuperate – a brilliant strategy! But unfortunately it may not last long… Theron grabs a hold of him! COME ON, TJ! TJ THROWS AN ELBOW BACK INTO THE MOUTH OF THERON! THERON IMMEDIATELY WITH CLUBBING BLOWS TO THE SPINE OF TIBERIUS! BOTH MEN JOCKEYING FOR POSITION HERE! LOOK OUT!
Pierre: HBG COMES IN OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THAT LADDER POP BROUGHT INTO THIS MATCH AS SHE DRIVES THE END OF IT RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF THERON NIKOLAS! Tiberius struggling to get up as Theron is down! HBG and Tiberius lock eyes once more… They both turn their attention to Theron! THIS IS LOOKING BAD FOR HIM – NO REX LEFT TO AID HIM IN THIS TWO ON ONE ASSAULT! HEXA-GUN LOOKING ALIVE ONCE MORE HERE! THEY MAKE THEIR WAY TOWARDS THERON! NO–TIBERIUS NAILS HBG FROM BEHIND WITH A BIG FOREARM!! HE’S LAYING INTO HER WITH CLUBBING BLOWS! TIBERIUS SEVERING WHATEVER TIES LEFT BETWEEN THE TWO! HE DOESN’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT TEAMING UP! HE WANTS TO GET HER OUT OF THIS AND HE’S WILLING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES! HBG CAN BARELY DEFEND HERSELF AS TIBERIUS STOMPS AWAY! HE GRABS THAT LADDER, PICKING IT UP! HE DRIVES THAT LADDER DOWN INTO THE SPINE OF HBG! ABSOLUTELY NO MERCY FROM THE EAW CHAMPION!
Drake: I HATE TO SEE THEM FIGHTING, PIERRE! I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! SOMEONE HAS TO WIN THOUGH! TJ DROPS THE LADDER, DRAGGING HBG BACK UP! HE’S GOT HER! SUPLEX FROM TIBERIUS ONTO HBG RIGHT ONTO THAT LADDER! HBG WRITHING IN PAIN ON THE CANVAS! Tiberius turns his attention to Theron, dragging him up! Theron’s fighting back! Theron with shots to the body of Tiberius! Tiberius with a knee to Theron! A SUPLEX TO THERON ON THE LADDER THIS TIME!! The sadistic delight on the face of the EAW Champion! He’s in full control here!
Pierre: He almost looks like he isn’t sure what to do! He wants to get rid of one of them! He wants to finish someone off here! He wants to be that much closer to walking out of here still the EAW Champion! Tiberius rises back to his feet, looking towards the corner! He’s got something in mind here as he makes his way over to the corner! Tiberius climbs to the top! This crowd booing as loud as they possibly can! He’s watching over both opponents! HBG’S THE FIRST TO RISE UP! TIBERIUS HAS HER IN HIS SIGHTS! HE LEAPS!!! HEADHUNTER!!!!!!!
Drake: HBG GRABBED THAT LADDER AND DROVE IT INTO TIBERIUS IN MID AIR!!! SHE PUTS A STOP TO THE INCOMING HEADHUNTER EMPHATICALLY AS TIBERIUS IS ROLLING AROUND ON THE CANVAS, CLUTCHING HIS MID-SECTION!! TIBERIUS IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO GET BACK UP! THERON ISN’T FAR BEHIND! HBG PUTS THAT LADDER AROUND HER HEAD AS SHE STARTS SWINGING IT AROUND! SHE’S SWINGING FOR THE FENCES WITH THAT LADDER IN HER CONTROL! THERON IS UP AS HE GETS NAILED IN THE FACE WITH IT! TIBERIUS FORCES HIMSELF UP AND TAKES A SHOT TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL FROM THAT LADDER!! HBG FINALLY STOPS HERSELF AND DRIVES THAT LADDER INTO TIBERIUS! Tiberius rolls under the ropes to the outside, possibly looking to escape and evade elimination, but HBG isn’t stopping, I’m afraid! She’s pursuing him! Get rid of Theron first, damn it! Come on!
Pierre: She only has eyes for Tiberius in this! Tiberius pulls himself up! HBG’S STILL GOT THAT LADDER AS SHE’S ON THE OUTSIDE, CHARGING FOR TIBERIUS! SHE DRIVES IT INTO THE GUT OF THE EAW CHAMPION!! THE OFFICIALS ARE DOING ALL THEY CAN TO KEEP THOSE BROKEN CHAMBER DOORS SHUT! HBG CHARGES INTO TIBERIUS WITH THAT LADDER AGAIN AS TIBERIUS GOES CRASHING THROUGH THE DOORS AND TO THE OUTSIDE!!! SHE’S OUT FOR TIBERIUS’ BLOOD! SHE WANTS TO TAKE HIM OUT OF THIS! SHE PURSUES TIBERIUS ON THE OUTSIDE AS OFFICIALS ARE DOING ALL THEY CAN TO STOP HER! THEY WANT TO GET THIS BACK IN THE CHAMBER, BUT SHE DOESN’T CARE! HBG DRIVES THAT LADDER INTO THE SPINE OF TIBERIUS! TIBERIUS TRYING TO ESCAPE UP THE RAMP! SHE NAILS HIM WITH THE LADDER AGAIN! THEY’RE UP AT THE TOP OF THE RAMP AS HBG THROWS THE LADDER DOWN! A DAMAGED TIBERIUS TURNS AROUND! HBG CHARGES IN!! EVISCERATION!!!!!! SHE NAILS TIBERIUS WITH IT!! HE’S OUT!
Drake: I… Hold on… I don’t think she’s done yet? I…. HBG now just staring down at Tiberius… SHE’S SHAKING HER HEAD “NO”?! WHAT ARE YOU DOING, HBG?! SHE’S GRABBING THAT LADDER! HBG’S SETTING THE LADDER UP AT THE TOP OF THE RAMP! THEY’RE PRACTICALLY ON THE STAGE THERE! THIS IS BAD! WHATEVER YOU’RE THINKING, DON’T DO IT, HBG! COME ON! HEXA-GUN! YOU’RE FRIENDS! DON’T! SHE’S GOT THAT LADDER SET UP! SHE’S CLIMBING IT! COME ON, HBG!
Pierre: She doesn’t care about that anymore! She’s put herself through absolute Hell to get here and she’s not stopping until she dethrones Tiberius! She wants this more than anything! SHE’S CLIMBING TO THE TOP OF THAT LADDER! SHE COULD BE LOOKING FOR THE FALL OF EMPIRE!!!!
Drake: HOLD ON–TIBERIUS IS STIRRING! HE’S ROLLING OUT OF THE WAY! HE MAY BE TOO FAR AWAY! HBG NEEDS TO GET DOWN! SHE–TIBERIUS IS FORCING HIMSELF UP!! DON’T–
(Tiberius IV rushes into the ladder, sending it tipping over and the Heart Break Gal flying off the side of the ramp)
Pierre: MY GOD–TIBERIUS–HE JUST SENT HER FLYING OFF OF THE STAGE!!! THE HEART BREAK GAL IS MOTIONLESS ON THE FLOOR BELOW!!! SHE’S NOT MOVING WHATSOEVER!
(Officials yell for help as a Doctor and other backstage workers rush out to check on the motionless Heart Break Gal)
Drake: I… I don’t know what to say….
Pierre: What a sick, sick thing to do! Of all things to do! He could have just ran back to the Chamber! He could have just gotten out of the way! Instead he sent HBG flying off that ladder and he could have just ended her damn career with that! Absolutely disgusting!
Drake: Oh come on, Pierre! Come on! Look, I know it’s bad, but this is HBG! I have no doubt she’ll be okay!
Doctor (no mic): NO, SHE CANNOT CONTINUE! SHE CAN’T CONTINUE!
Drake: You cowards! Damn it! Damn it to Hell!
Pierre: HBG still not moving whatsoever as she may be finished in this match after taking that fall… Tiberius trying to get back to the Chamber, hoping to finish off Theron Nikolas… Tiberius looks absolutely out of it… His face covered in blood from earlier on, just doing literally everything he can to end this… He crawls back into the Chamber as they shut the doors behind him. It looks as though HBG will definitely not be able to continue… Tiberius with Theron in his sights as he stumbles onto his feet and into the ropes! He could be looking to end this!
Drake: COME ON, TJ! DO IT FOR HBG! FINISH THIS! HE’S PERCHED! THERON IS BARELY ABLE TO STAND! THERON’S UP AS HE TURNS AROUND! HEADHUNNNNTTTTEEEERRRR!!!
Pierre: POWERBOMB–THERON CATCHES THE INCOMING TIBERIUS WITH A VICIOUS POWERBOMB!!! HE MAY HAVE BEEN PLAYING A BIT OF POSSUM THERE! HE’S GOT TO KEEP IT GOING! THERON NOT GOING FOR THE COVER HERE! HE MAY HAVE SOMETHING IN MIND! Tiberius looks completely out of it by this point! He may have taken too much damage in this contest! Both men stirring now, trying to get back to their feet… Theron clutching the ropes to drag himself up… Tiberius favoring his back now after that powerbomb… A look of absolute HATE for this man on the face of Tiberius as he looks across the ring at Theron Nikolas! TIBERIUS FORCES HIMSELF UP, PICKING UP SPEED! INCOMING! THERON HAS IT SCOUTED AS HE SENDS TIBERIUS UP AND OVER! TIBERIUS LANDS ON HIS FEET ON THE OUTSIDE! HE NAILS THERON WITH A BIG FOREARM! THERON BARELY ABLE TO KEEP HIMSELF UP AS HE BACKPEDALS!
Drake: TIBERIUS LEAPS TO THE TOP!! THERON RUSHES IN AND FORCES HIM OFF, SENDING TIBERIUS CRASHING HARD ON THE STEEL ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!! Tiberius knows he can’t let Theron have the momentum! He can’t! Come on, TJ! He’s forcing himself up! TJ GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AND RUSHES IN, BUT THERON COMES IN AND NAILS HIM WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE OVER THE TOP ROPE! TJ GOES CRASHING HARD INTO THE CHAMBER WALL! Theron now… PICKING UP SPEED AS HE HITS THE ROPES! LOOK OUT!
Pierre: TOPE SUICIDA–HE TURNS IT INTO A TORNADO DDT, VIOLENTLY CONNECTING ONTO THAT UNFORGIVING STEEL PANELING!!! TIBERIUS IV IS MOTIONLESS! HIS CHEST HEAVING RAPIDLY, BARELY ABLE TO KEEP GOING! Theron has found himself in the driver’s seat here, he needs to take control! He’s been waiting this long for this moment! He’s been looking for this chance to prove he can beat Tiberius once and for all and it’s put up or shut up time! Theron clutches the ropes once more, pulling himself up! The fire in his eyes! He nods before grabbing a hold of Tiberius, dragging him up… HE CLUTCHES THAT WRIST! THIS CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET HERE IN MINNEAPOLIS!!! WE KNOW WHAT’S COMING AS HE DRAGS TIBERIUS UP! TIBERIUS STILL WITH LIFE LEFT IN HIM! HE THROWS AN ELBOW INTO THE MOUTH OF THERON! THERON WITH A HEADBUTT TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL! HE KEEPS THAT WRIST CLUTCHED! THERON SENDS TIBERIUS OUT… AND IN!!!!

HE PULLS TIBERIUS IN AGAIN! TIBERIUS WITH A LOUD FOREARM TO THE FACE THIS TIME! HE STILL CAN’T GET THERON TO LET GO! TIBERIUS PULLS THERON IN THIS TIME WITH AN IRISH WHIP STRAIGHT INTO THE CHAMBER WALL AS THERON CRASHES INTO IT!!! Tiberius saves himself! Theron is in a LOT of pain, Pierre! He may as well quit while he’s ahead! This is over! He can’t do it!
Pierre: I wouldn’t be so sure, you never know with this man! Tiberius aims to make sure he doesn’t pull it off as he stomps away at the downed Theron! Tiberius yelling for him to stay down! Theron refuses to listen! The tenacity of this man!
Drake: Tenacity only prolongs the inevitable, Pierre! Only idiots keep going beyond their limits!
Pierre: Well he’s still alive regardless, but perhaps not for long as Tiberius starts to stalk his opponent… Tiberius wipes the blood away from his eyes, staring down at a struggling Theron Nikolas… THERON TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF UP AS TIBERIUS RUSHES IN!! STRIKE OF MIIIIDDDDDNNNNNNIIIIGGGHTTT!!! NO–THERON DOESN’T LET IT HAPPEN AS HE CATCHES TIBERIUS, WRESTLING HIM TO THE GROUND!! TIBERIUS IS PANICKING! HE CAN’T GET HIM OFF! THERON WON’T LET GO!

He knows Theron is right there behind him! Theron grabs the foot of TJ! Tiberius tries to kick him away! Doing literally all he can to get away from this psycho!
Pierre: Theron now forcing himself back up to a vertical base! Tiberius doesn’t look to have it in him to do the same! He’s still at the mercy of his challenger!

Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS CONTEST…. AND STTTTTTTTIIIIIILLLLLLLLL EAW CHAMPION…… TIIIIIIBBBBBBBBEEEEEEERRRRRIIIIIUUUUUSSSS IV!!!!!!
Drake: OH MY GOD YES! ALL OF MY YES! HE DID IT! HOLY HELL HE DID IT! TIBERIUS JUST OVERCOME ALL FIVE OF THEM! STILL EAW CHAMPION, PIERRE! STILL EAW CHAMPION! YES!
Pierre: An unbelievable match! One of the most hellacious contests I’ve ever seen in all of my time here on commentary! All six men in this match gave it their absolute all to walk out of here as EAW Champion, and in the end, by hook or by crook, Tiberius IV pulls it off!
Drake: I DON’T CARE WHO YOU ARE! I DON’T CARE! YOU CAN NO LONGER DOUBT THIS MAN! HE JUST PROVED THEM ALL WRONG! STILL EAW CHAMPION! HE DID IT! I KNEW HE COULD DO IT! I BELIEVED, PIERRE!
(The Referee hands Tiberius IV the EAW Championship as a medical team checks on both he and Theron Nikolas)
Pierre: An absolutely brutal, savage bout between six athletes that wanted to prove they are the very best EAW has to offer, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more than what we got! They laid it all on the line and then some! Not just them, but every person who stepped inside of a Chamber here at Road To Redemption! They all went through Hell and they all proved beyond a shadow of a doubt what warriors they are!
Drake: I’M HONESTLY NOT EVEN LISTENING TO WHAT YOU’RE SAYING ANYMORE, PIERRE! I CAN’T HEAR YOU OVER THIS HIGH I’M ON! THESE PEOPLE MAY NOT LIKE IT, BUT THEY BETTER LEARN TO LOVE IT, BECAUSE TIBERIUS IS THE BEST THING GOING TODAY! NO DOUBT IN MY MIND!
Pierre: He absolutely proved he’s the best tonight, I won’t take that away from you! An incredible contest that was and an incredible show it’s been! I want to thank each and every one of you for giving us 11 wonderful Road To Redemptions to enjoy, and I hope we have many more to come! Thank you for 100 incredible events that culminated here tonight in such an amazing way! Thank you!
Drake: HEXA-GUN! HEXA-GUN! HEXA-GUN! I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!
(Drake Jaeger is heard taking off his headset and rushing over to where Tiberius is to celebrate with him as the camera shows Theron Nikolas struggling to get up on the outside, pushing away medical officials)
Pierre: And that man there gave it his absolute all tonight, doing all he could to attempt to dethrone the man he once considered a friend and ally and mentor, and he has absolutely nothing to be ashamed about. None of the competitors in this contest do!
(Theron rips off his wrist tape, dropping to one knee on the outside before the camera cuts back to Tiberius in the ring)
Pierre: It’s been an unforgettable show, ladies and gentlemen, so thank you all for joining us here tonight for it, from all of those in attendance and those watching at home! We will see you soon as we near the end of this spectacular year in EAW! Signing off for Drake Jaeger, Voltage commentary, Empire commentary, and Dynasty commentary, I am Pierre McGuire, and thank you for being here with us for Road To Redemption! Thank you and goodnight!
(Tiberius IV remains in the corner of the ring, barely able to hold up the EAW Championship as Drake Jaeger, Jaywalker, Ares Vendetta, and Lannister celebrate with him before the camera fades to black)
