( EAW Intro plays )
( “Phenomenal” by Eminem plays… Recap video of the various rivalries is aired, featuring the Heart Break Boy vs. Lioncross feud, Dark Demon vs. Diamond Cage, Mexican Samurai vs. Pizza Boy and the main event triple threat contest for the EAW Championship between King Lannister, Jamie O’Hara and the champion Xavier Williams )
( Camera cuts to the PNC Park where the event is LIVE! It is packed with many, many fans as “Phenomenal” by Eminem is playing over the loudspeakers and pyro shoots up from the stage to the roar of the crowd )
Mercer: IT IS A GORGEOUS NOVEMBER EVENING IN THE STEEL CITY! WE ARE COMING TO YOU LIVE FROM THE PNC PARK IN PITTSBURGH, WELCOME TO THE LONGEST RUNNING WEEKLY EPISODIC SHOW IN EAW HISTORY, SHOWDOWN!
Ryder: WOO WOO WOO, YOU KNOW IT BRO! IT IS HOT TONIGHT IN THE STEEL CITY WITH A HYPED UP CROWD OF OVER 38,000 AND COUNTING THUS FAR! THIS IS SHAPING UP TO BE THE BIGGES T TURNOUT IN SHOWDOWN HISTORY AND WE ARE NEAR CAPACITY FOR TONIGHT’S EVENT, THAT’S BECAUSE OF THE INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF HYPE SURROUNDING TONIGHT’S SHOW!
Mercer: We have many big matches set to take place but most importantly… the EAW CHAMPIONSHIP is on the line, folks! Xavier Williams defends his title against Jamie O’Hara and the KING of all of EAW, King Lannister in what should be a triple threat bout for the ages!
Ryder: The Hall of Fame title, Interwire title and the brand new Specialists title are also up for grabs this evening… this is gonna be such a big show, so let’s get things off to a BIG start!
( Heart Break Boy vs. Lioncross match pic appears on screen )
Mercer: THIS IS AS BIG OF A START AS IT GETS! TWO MASSIVE LEGENDS IN THE LORE OF ALL OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING COLLIDE IN WHAT HAS QUICKLY BECOME A HEATED NEW SAGA OF AN EPIC, STORIED RIVALRY!
( Hype video plays for the Lioncross vs. Heart Break Boy, highlighting their matches outside of EAW and the stories behind the rivalries they’ve had elsewhere. It shows the promotion spreading and rumor mills flowing of news of Lioncross’ interest in joining EAW, until the announcement of a “major signing” is announced by James Shields. We then cut to the contract signing itself where Heart Break Boy made his return to introduce Lioncross, and the two of them exchange words of respect until Lioncross finally signs his contract and shakes hands with HBB… It is then that HBB floors him with the Goldprint, and LC and HBB’s exchange of words the following week are shown including HBB calling for Lioncross to bring “his best” and the package finally ends with a zoom in of a look of intensity in the eyes of Lioncross. )
( Cut back to the arena… )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Ring Announcer: This following match… is scheduled FOOOR ONE FALLLL!!!
( “Higher Ground” by Red Hot Chilli Peppers plays as the PNC Park gives a massive ovation for Lioncross as he’s walking backstage dressed in his wrestling gear with a look of conviction. A moment then passes as he steps out through the curtain and walks out to the stage, beholding the massive audience before continuing down the ramp. )
Ryder: THERE HE IS! For some members of the EAW Universe who may not be aware, that man is none other than pro-wrestling legend, Lioncross; and for those who are aware don’t adjust your television sets because you ARE seeing Lioncross in an EAW arena, set to compete in an EAW ring tonight!
Mercer: Lioncross laces his boots for the first time since December 2013, roughly TWO YEARS AGO! And you see that? ! That is a look of CONVICTION, ANGER, perhaps ADRENALINE filling the body of that man right there!
Ryder: And rightfully so, broski, because this guy’s got every reason to be angry! You can just tell that Lioncross is fired up this evening…. usually you see a much more happy go lucky LC, many who know this guy knows he’s more prone to addressing the fans, but that’s not the story tonight. Tonight he means business as he takes on a familiar rival in a not-too familiar setting.
( Lioncross is in the ring pacing as he’s getting an ovation and respect from the crowd… his music dies down )
( After a bit of a wait, “Fear” by Lecrae hits and Heart Break Boy makes his entrance wearing ring gear, and halfway to the ramp he drops to his knees and spreads his arms as his signature pyro goes off. Soon after HBB gets back up and continues his way to the ring )
Ring Announcer: His opponent…. from Ferguson, Missouri weighing 220 POOOOOOOUNNDS… “THE GOLDEN BOY” … HEEEEEEEEARTTT.. BREEEEEEEEEEEAK BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYY!!!
Mercer: The last time we saw HBB in action was at Midsummer Massacre when he had to be stretchered out by EMT’s after being dealt another serious concussion to the head! However the one difference between HBB and Lioncross through all of their similarities is that we know HBB can still go, and HBB perhaps used the uncertainty in Lioncross’ abilities to his advantage–
Ryder: Well I don’t know if that matters, broski! Lioncross isn’t thinking about his uncertainties, he isn’t thinking about how long he’s been out, he’s thinking about getting even with HBB!
Mercer: I’m just saying Heart Break Boy has got a psychological advantage if anything! HBB is in HIS element, Lioncross has never wrestled inside of an EAW ring on the EAW stage, but HBB has practically made this stage his home!
( HBB and Lioncross are across the ring from each other, Lioncross in particular is glaring at his opponent as HBB’s theme music dies down… the referee briefs both men and soon after he calls for the bell )
Mercer: This is a rivalry that has spanned through companies such as CWF, LEGION and now it reaches the Land of Elite! The last time these two men faced off was in July of 2011 at LEGION: Best In The World! Now they meet again four and 1/2 years later at Showdown: REDEMPTION!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Ryder: IT’S GO TIME! LIONCROSS SPEEDS ACROSS THE RING AND HBB STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES AS THE REFEREE GETS RIGHT IN BETWEEN THE TWO BEFORE LIONCROSS CAN DO ANY DAMAGE! The ref backs LC away, warning him not to lose his temper! The official’s going to be very strict in this match, he knows just as well as we know about the heat between these two men.. Heart Break Boy steps away from the ropes and the ref steps out of the way again… this time HBB and Lioncross circle the ring and close in on each other.. LIONCROSS GOES FOR A FEW SHOTS, HBB backs away however …. HBB holds out his hands going for a greco roman lock up and Lioncross inches closer… but LC HITS A FEW BODY SHOTS INSTEAD, SENDING HBB BACK.. HBB leans back on the ropes holding his midsection and LC HITS A LOOOOUDDD RUNNING PALM CHOP TO THE CHEST!
Mercer: HBB walks away holding his chest in pain and Lioncross turns him around — HBB CUTS HIM OFF WITH A KNIFE EDGED CHOP TO THE CHEST OF LIONCROSS! AND HE HITS ANOTHER! HBB ADJUSTS HIS OPPONENT, A THIRD CHOP! BUT LIONCROSS RESPONDS WITH A ROLLING BACKHAND! NOW A LEFT PUNCH STRAIGHT TO THE TEMPLE! HBB HOLDS HIS FACE AS HE BACKS INTO THE CORNER, LIONCROSS MEETS UP WITH HIM, AND HE HITS SEVERAL RIGHT HANDS TO THE FACE! A LEFT TO THE RIBS, A RIGHT TO THE MIDSECTION NOW! Lioncross whips HBB across the ring… but HBB reverses the whip, but follows him up from behind with a rear waistlock! Lioncross hits a back elbow but HBB ducks that and HBB hits an ATOMIC DROP and follows up with a roll up!
Ref: OOOOOOOOONEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO-
Ryder: KICK OUT by LC! They both return to their feet… LC TAKES HBB DOWN WITH SUCH A HARD KNIFE EDGED CHOP TO THE CHEST, AND HOVERS OVER HIM TO HIT SOME GROUND AND POUND RIGHTS AND LEFTS INCLUDING A CLEAN SHOT THAT HITS HBB’S HEAD! HBB IS COVERING UP AS WELL AS HE CAN, AND THE REF PULLS LIONCROSS OFF HIS OPPONENT! HBB is recovering and LIONCROSS RUSHES ACROSS THE RING AND HITS A KICK TO THE RIBS! HBB rolls away in pain as he rolls to the apron in retreat… and LC SPRINTS across the ring and hits a BASEBALL SLIDE sending HBB tumbling to ringside! HBB’s down on the ground but not for long, he’s trying to rush to his feet and Lioncross takes the opportunity to run the ropes behind him and sprint across the ring again…. BUT BEFORE HE CAN DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE HBB RUSHES UP THE APRON AND FACEPLANTS HIM TO THE ROPE! Now HBB drags Lioncross out of the ring by his legs, adjusts him… and IRISH WHIPS HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE RINGPOST! LIONCROSS’ TORSO HITS THE RINGPOST, AND HE COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR! THAT DID NOT LOOK GOOD, BRO!
Mercer: Lioncross is rolling around holding his — it looks like his right pec which seems to have taken most of the hit! It was that right pec that was one of the nagging injuries throughout LC’s career that he required surgery for after he left the business in 2013! HBB may or may not have that scouted… meanwhile Lioncross is doing his best to rush up to his feet, but HBB charges in the ring and the ref begins his count.
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Mercer: Lioncross reaches the apron and HBB HITS A CANNON-BALL LOW DROPKICK TO LIONCROSS SENDING HIM COLLAPSING BACK TO THE FLOOR! AND LIONCROSS BANGS HIS HAND ON THE RINGSIDE FLOOR IN PAIN AND FRUSTRATION WHILE HOLDING HIS RIGHT PEC! He might be hurt! Lioncross gets back up and HBB springs over the ropes to the apron and hits the SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE!!! This is NOT looking good for Lioncross! HBB eventually drags LC back up to his feet and rolls him in the ring as he goes for the lateral press!
Ref: OOOOOOONEEEEEE!!! TWWWWW-
Ryder: Kick out by Lioncross! But just notice how HBB did the lateral press from the right side… now HBB gets up and STOMPS RIGHT ONTO THAT RIGHT PECTORAL MUSCLE! OH YEAH, HBB’S DEFINITELY GOT THAT AREA SCOUTED, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! Lioncross is rolling around the ring and the referee’s asking if he wants to continue, but it doesn’t look like even the thought of quitting has entered his mind… now HBB helps Lioncross up to his feet and LIONCROSS RAKES THE EYE OF HBB!!! HBB HAS HAD EYE TROUBLES THAT HAVE PUT A MASSIVE STRAIN ON HIS CAREER, AND LIONCROSS DESPERATELY ATTACKS THAT AREA — BUT HBB FIRES BACK WITH A NUMBER OF FEROCIOUS KNIFE EDGED CHOPS TO THE CHEST! Lioncross turns around holding his chest, but HBB snatches the right arm from behind for the key lock! That right pec is being worn out by the key lock as LC lets out a yell just when it’s applied… and LC CARTWHEEL ROLLS THROUGH THE MOVE, BUT HBB ROLLS THROUGH WITH HIM TO THE MAT AND TURNS THE KEY LOCK INTO A CROSS ARMBAR! HBB’S YANKING BACK THAT ARM!!!!! BUT LIONCROSS ROLLED THE RIGHT WAY AND HE MANAGES TO GET HIS LEFT HAND FIRMLY WRAPPED AROUND THE RING ROPE! HBB IS REFUSING TO LET GO HOWEVER, INSTEAD HE’S REARING BACK EVEN FURTHER!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Mercer: HBB releases the hold and Lioncross gets to the apron grimacing in pain! There’s definitely some serious, serious issues as a ringside doctor is checking on LC… but now HBB leans over the ropes nearby and hits a ROPE-AIDED CANONBALL LEGDROP OVER THE ROPES AND INTO THE CHEST OF THE SEATED LIONCROSS! HBB AND LC COLLAPSE TO RINGSIDE! LC is squirming in pain following that innovative move and HBB drags LC back up to his feet again — ANOTHER KNIFE EDGED CHOP TO THE CHEST! LC STUMBLES AWAY AND LEANS OVER THE RING STEPS… NOW HBB COMES AFTER HIM FROM BEHIND AND HOISTS HIM UP JUST TO DROP HIM CHEST FIRST — no, Lioncross lands behind him and rolls back in the ring… now HBB enters the ring and comes after LC– BUT LIONCROSS GETS HIM WITH THE DROP TOE HOLD!!! LION’S CLAW!!!!! LC’S APPLYING THE CROSSFACE!! BUT HBB SEEMED TO HAVE HAD THAT MOVE SCOUTED FROM THE BEGINNING, BECAUSE LC DOESNT HAVE NEARLY ENOUGH UPPERBODY STRENGTH TO FULLY GET IN THAT MOVE! IN FACT LOOK! HBB ROLLS THROUGH IT… AND HE LOCKS IN HIS OWN CROSSFACE, TRAPPING LC’S RIGHT ARM WITH THE LEGS AND APPLYING THE OMOPLATA CROSSFACE! LIONCROSS IS MUSTERING UP SOME LEG STRENGTH HOWEVER…. AND HE MANAGES TO FRONT ROLL INTO A PINNING COUNTER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOONEE!!! TWWW-
Ryder: KICK OUT. The two legends rush up to their feet — GOLDPRINT!!!!!! NO, LIONCROSS SIDESTEPS IT, SNATCHES HIM FROM BEHIND, REVERSE DDT! HIT FLUIDLY AND FLAWLESSLY! HOOK OF THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWWOOOOOO-
Ryder: KICK OUT again! Lioncross is trying to muster up some momentum now and some of the audience is being won over by his tenacity! Lioncross wills himself to his feet and rushes over to the corner while Heart Break Boy is recovering from that nice reverse DDT that could have taken any normal man out… now HBB is up to his feet and Lioncross is standing on the second turnbuckle as HBB turns around — DIVING TORNADO DDT!!!! NO, HBB COUNTERS IT IN MID AIR AS LIONCROSS LANDS ON HIS STERNUM, AND THAT INJURED RIGHT PEC HITS THE GROUND HARD AS LIONCROSS IS ROLLING AROUND HOLDING IT IN PAIN! THE MOMENTUM OF PAIN TAKES LC BACK UP TO HIS FEET — GOLDPRINT!!!!! LIONCROSS CRUMPLES TO HIS KNEES AND IS LAID OUT NOW, COMPLETELY CRUSHED BY THAT GOLDPRINT AS HBB JUMPS OVER HIM FOR THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRRR-
Mercer: KICK OUT BY LIONCROSS!!! LIONCROSS CAME PREPARED, AND HE’S JUST KICKED OUT OF THAT LEGENDARY FINISHING MANEUVER OF THE HEART BREAK BOY’S! HBB sits up in utter shock! Lioncross’ HEART is taking him places perhaps where his body cannot afford to be!
Ryder: Well HBB may have finally met someone with just as much heart as him! Or maybe it’s just the wars over the years that have readied these men for what they’ve got pLanned for each other! Heart Break Boy gets up and turns a hurt, possibly stunned Lioncross over… and STOMPS REPEATEDLY INTO HIS RIGHT PEC OVER AND OVER AGAIN!
( HBB leans over to LC )
HBB: WHY DON’T YOU JUST GIVE IT UP!?
Ryder: LIONCROSS SLAPS HBB ACROSS THE FACE!!! A GESTURE OF DEFIANCE FROM THE VETERAN! HBB HOLDS HIS FACE IN SHOCK… BUT HBB HITS A RUNNING STOMP INTO THE HEAD OF LIONCROSS! Now LC rolls to the center of the ring certainly in a world of hurt. HBB takes his time to gather his thoughts and Heart Break Boy makes his way to the apron and climbs up to the top rope… now HBB climbs up the turnbuckle slowly, showing off to the crowd because he’s setting up for the end! Imagine if HBB were able to plant that elbow straight into the RIGHT PEC OF LIONCROSS?–
Mercer: WE’RE NOT GONNA SEE IT, BECAUSE LC SHOOTS UP TO HIS FEET IN PERHAPS A BURST OF ADRENALINE AND JOGS ACROSS THE RING TO HIT A RUNNING PELE KICK!!! HBB COLLAPSES ON THE TOP ROPE, BUT LIONCROSS TOOK A HARD LANDING AFTER THAT PELE KICK, PERHAPS AGGRAVATING THAT PECTORAL INJURY EVEN FURTHER! On the bright side for LC, that pele kick appears to have knocked HBB for a loop because he’s not very responsive up there in the high rent district… but LIONCROSS RUSHES UP TO HIS FEET YET AGAIN, SPRINTS UP THE CORNER AND HITS…. OH MY!!!! AN INVERTED ATOMIC DROP ALL THE WAY FROM THE TOP ROPE!!! HBB HOPS AROUND HOLDING HIS GROIN AND LIONCROSS TURNS HIM AROUND — MASSIVE LARIAT! LC STUMBLES TO HIS KNEES AFTER HITTING A LARIAT SO HARD! HBB quickly gets back up however and the two of them face off! LIONCROSS SWINGS FOR A RIGHT, HBB DUCKS, DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN AND HBB HITS THE CATAPULT SENDING LC STRAIGHT INTO THE CORNER PEC FIRST!!! — NO, LC CATCHES HIMSELF SOME HOW ON THE MIDDLE ROPE AS HBB RETURNS TO HIS FEET STILL HOLDING HIS GROIN, AND LC LEAPS OFF THE CORNER WITH A SPRINGBOARD WHEELBARROW FRONT-ROLL PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Ryder: HBB ROLLS BACK AND SPINS LIKE A TOP, COUNTERING WITH A PINNING BRIDGE!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Mercer: SOMEHOW LIONCROSS IS ABLE TO ARCH THAT BRIDGE! INCREDIBLE, EVEN WITH A HURT PEC, HE’S ABLE TO SAVE THIS MATCH UP… AND HE GETS UP TO HIS FEET WITH THE BRIDGE STILL ARCHED, HE WORKS HIMSELF AND HIS OPPONENT OVER AND IS GOING FOR A BACKSLIDE REVERSAL… BUT HIS UPPER BODY STRENGTH ISN’T ENOUGH, HBB IS STRUGGLING WITH THE BACKSLIDE AS HE AND LIONCROSS SPIN TO EACH OTHER — HEADBUTT BY LIONCROSS! … KNIFE EDGED CHOP BY HBB! LIONCROSS STUMBLES AWAY, HBB COMES AT HIM WITH ANOTHER KNIFE EDGED — RIGHT HOOK CRACKS THE JAW OF HBB!! LIONCROSS GOT HIM WITH A CLEAN SHOT, BLOOD GOES SPILLING OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE GOLDEN BOY! Lioncross has found his opening and he grabs HBB and hits a KNEE RIGHT TO THE BODY! HBB collapses to a seated position, Lioncross backs into the ropes still favoring the right pec and hits a RUNNING FIELD GOAL KICK STRAIGHT TO THE FACE!!! OH WHAT A HORRENDOUS SHOT, THAT SOUNDED LIKE A FREAKING GUNSHOT!
Ryder: HBB rolls around holding his face and takes solace in the corner slowly getting back up… and LIONCROSS IS BACKED INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER FAR WAY AT THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING… THE INTENSITY IS WRITTEN ALL OVER HIS FACE!!! LIONCROSS CHARGES ACROSS THE RING!!! LEFT ARM CORNER CLOTHESLINE!!! LIONCROSS WHIPS HBB TO THE OTHER SIDE, AND LIONCROSS FOLLWS HBB… ANOTHER MASSIVE CLOTHESLINE!!!! LC WHIPS HBB AGAIN TO THE OTHERSIDE ….. ANOTHER RUNNING LEFT-ARM CLOTHESLINE!!! LC WHIPS HBB ACROSS THE RING AGAIN ….. FOURTH LOUD, POWERFUL, ANGRY CLOTHESLINE!!!! HE’S LETTING EVERYTHING GO INTO THOSE FEROCIOUS CLOTHESLINES, USING HIS LEFT ARM AND FAVORING HIS RIGHT PEC! LC CONTINUES WITH ANOTHER WHIP ACROSS THE RING…. AND LC FOLLOWS UP WITH A FIFTH ONE!!! HBB CAN BARELY KEEP HIS FOOTING, AND LC STRAIGHTENS UP HIS OPPONENT AND WHIPS HIM ACROSS THE RING AGAIN, SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING, AND THIS TIME HITS A JUMPING THUMB TO THE EYE!!! MY GOODNESS! HBB IS SQUIRMING AROUND HOLDING HIS FACE IN SHEER PAIN! LIONCROSS STANDS OVER HBB WITH A FLURRY OF LEFTS AND FAINT RIGHTS, GROUND AND POUNDING ON HIM BEFORE DRAGGING HBB UP AGAIN AND WHIPPING HIM ACROSS THE RING AGAIN — BUT HBB COLLAPSES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, HE CAN’T EVEN CONTINUE! BUT LC FOLLOWS HBB UP AND DRAGS HIM TO HIS FEET TO SEND HIM INTO THAT CORNER… LC FOLLOWS THROUGH — NOOOO, SECOND GOLDPRINT BY HBB!!!!!!!!!
Mercer: NO, LC DUCKS IT! NOW LIONCROSS FROM BEHIND!!!!!! SPINNING BACKFIST TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!!! EXECUTION STYLE!!!!! HBB DROPS TO THE MAT, LIONCROSS COLLAPSES OVER HIM FOR THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Mercer: LIONCROSS GETS UP FROM THE PIN! HE DRAGS HBB UP TO HIS KNEES BY HIS HAIR! LIONCROSS RUNS THE ROPES……. BANG!!!!!!! ANOTHER RUNNING SPINNING BACKFIST WITH ALL HE’S GOT!!!!!! HBB IS TURNED INSIDE OUT BY THIS! COVER AGAIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
( “Higher Ground” by RHCP hits and the crowd gives a big ovation as Lioncross is overcome with pain, barely able to get up from the ground, but has his arm raised in victory )
Ring Announcer: HERE IS YOUR WINNERRR…. LLLLLLLLLLIOOOOOOONCRROOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSS!!!!
Mercer: LIONCROSS WINS! WHAT A BARN BURNER!
Ryder: Lioncross fought back from EVERYTHING, literally EVERYTHING to get to this point! A two year hiatus from wrestling, personal troubles, family issues, deceit from the hands of Heart Break Boy and an injured pectoral muscle and willed himself on to an INCREDIBLE victory to kick off Showdown’s supershow! WOW!
( Replays of the match are shown )
Ryder: Heart Break Boy without a doubt had his opponent well scouted! He knew everything it took to put LC down and keep him down, but Lioncross just had so much invested into this contest and he REFUSED to be a victim! Not again, not after everything he’s been through already!
Mercer: A hell of a way to kick off the supershow! Two wrestling legends colliding and Lioncross makes his EAW debut defeating one of EAW’s greatest and most accomplished legends! You’ve got to hand it to the man.
( Lioncross is standing over the ring with a hold of his right bicep, and is looking down at HBB in disgust before gingerly exiting the ring and celebrating with those who are holding up Lioncross signs or wearing Lioncross shirts )
( “Phenomenal” by Eminem plays in the background of the broadcast as the match card appears on the screen showing the main event of tonight’s show: Xavier Williams vs. Jamie O’Hara vs. King Lannister – EAW Championship )
Ryder: Well while LC and HBB put on a hard act to follow, tonight in our main event the EAW Championship is on the line as Xavier Williams defends his gold in a match against Jamie O’Hara and the King of EAW cashing in his crown, KING LANNISTER!
( Camera shows Xavier Williams entering the arena with Albert Hitchman; the both of them wearing dark shades and dark clothing while Xav is dragging behind his luggage and holding his EAW Championship over his street clothes )
Mercer: And speak of the champ, here he comes now with his manager Hitchman! But it’s worth pointing out that in tonight’s match if Albert Hitchman interferes in any way, Xav is STRIPPED of the EAW Championship!
Ryder: Xav’s going to have to rely on his abilities and a little bit of luck to get the job done, it’s three of the best in the world in the prime of their lives going at it for the greatest prize in the whole daggone business, Jake! Stay tuned!
( Shock Value commercial: Shock Value takes place LIVE! from the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 14th, 2015! )
( Camera cuts backstage to Eve as she’s at the interview area standing by Team DCW: Maxwell Dachs, El Landerson and Kerry Keller all dressed in DCW shirts, with Dachs carrying a DCW flag, Landerson with DCW war paint on and Keller wearing camo pants as they’re all dressed for “war” )
Eve: Tonight’s the big night for Team DCW and standing backstage with me live are none other than the brave soldiers who will be doing battle with the Hexa-Gun in just a moment.
( Maxwell Dachs fumbles the microphone from Eve’s hand )
Maxwell Dachs: THAT’S RIGHT HEXA-TWATS, WE’RE COMING FOR YOU!
( Eve snatches the mic back )
Eve: Mr. Dachs if I might ask, what might be your war tactics heading into this match against the seemingly unbeatable forces of Hexa-gun?
( Maxwell fumbles the microphone from Eve’s hand again )
Dachs: STUPID SKAG, YOU DON’T KNOW JACK (CENSORED) ABOUT WAR DO YA’? WOMEN (NO). WE’RE NOT TELLIN’ YOU WHAT WE’VE GOT PLANNED BECAUSE WE DON’T ANNOUNCE OUR PLANS BEFORE THEY HAPPEN, DUMB SKAG! WE AT TEAM DCW HAVE BROUGHT OUR GUNS TO EAW TO PROVE THAT WE CAN OUT GUN EVEN THE ‘MIGHTY’ HEXA-GUN. NOW SINCE YOU OBVIOUSLY AREN’T THE ONES WITH THE COMPETENT QUESTIONS AROUND HERE EVE, HOW ABOUT I ASK YOU A QUESTION? WHAT’S A HEXA-GUN… TO A TANK!?
( Dachs puts the mic up to Eve’s face, but Keller answers before she can answer )
Kerry Keller: The answer is NOTHING, Eve.
Dachs: (screaming in Eve’s face) NOTHING!!! THE HEXA-GUN ARE NOTHING TO US YOU FILTHY, DIRTY, DISEASE RIDDEN SKAG!!! NOW GET LOST! MAKE US A (CENSORED) SANDWICH OR SOMETHIN’!
( An offended Eve quickly exits the scene )
Dachs: NOW THERE’S A REASON I’M RAISING MY VOICE LIKE THIS, AND IT’S BECAUSE I AM (CENSORED) PUMPED! WANNA KNOW WHY? BECAUSE TODAY IS THE DAY THAT HEXA-GUN DIES! WE ARE THE TANKS TO THEIR PUNY LITTLE GUNS, AND DACHSLEMANIA AND ALL OF HIS LITTLE DACHSLMANIACS ARE GONNA RUN WILD IN THE PNC PARK, IF YOU SMELL WHAT THE DACHS IS COOKING!
El Landerson: DCW! DCW!
Kerry Keller: (joining in) DCW! DCW!
All three men: DCW! DCW! DCW! DCW! DCW! DCW! DCW!
( Team DCW wave their flags and exit the scene chanting “DCW’ until the camera cuts back to the arena )
( Cut back to the PNC Park where the fans are enjoying themselves and waiting for the next match )
(“YMCA” by Village People hits as the crowd cheers. A large, green tank then comes out with Maxwell Dachs, El Landerson, and Kerry Keller all standing on it. Maxwell Dachs is waving a Team DCW flag with a look of determination. The three men then hop off the tank on the ramp and enter the ring as Maxwell Dachs continues to wave the flag.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is a 3 on 3 tag team match. Introducing first… EL LANDERSON… KERRY KELLER… AND MAXWELL DACHS! TEAM DCW!
Mercer: They brought a tank…..
Ryder: Team DCW looks fired up BRO! They came out here on a freaking tank, bro! Now that’s RAD!
Mercer: They look as if they’re trying to send a message.
(Marilyn Mansion – “Killing Strangers” begins to play as the crowd boos heavily. Tiberious Jones and Drake Jaeger walks onto the stage. Both men stand there for a moment as Luzmala walks out behind them. Drake runs into the ring, followed by Tiberius and Luzmala as all three men stand across from their opponents.)
Ring Announcer: And their opponents… TIBERIUS JONES… DRAKE JAEGER… AND LUZMALA…. HEXA-GUN!
Ryder: Here is the seemingly invincible Hexa-Gun. They have been quite the force since arriving in EAW.
Mercer: That’s because they haven’t faced at team quite like Team DCW, Ryder! Team DCW could change the complexion of EAW forever with this victory, just wait and see!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Ryder: We’re underway. Tiberius Jones and Maxwell Dachs we’ll start things off for their teams. Tiberius makes the first move as he charges at Maxwell Dachs who cuts him off with a fierce elbow! Dachs keeps going with a leg lariat that takes down Tiberius Jones! Dachs followed up with a leg drop across the throat of Tiberius Jones and he goes for a quick cover!
Ref: ONEEE! TWOOO!
Mercer: Jones manages to kick out. Dachs lifts him up and seems to be attempting a german suplex but Tiberius isn’t having that! He elbows Dachs in the jaw and grabs his head… SPRING BOARD DDT! WHAT A MOVE! Jones now climbs to the top rope! SWANTON BOMB!… DACHS ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! JONES GETS TO HIS FEET… SWINGING NECK BREAKER! Dachs has gotten some momentum going for his team as he tags in El Landerson!
Ryder: El Landerson comes in and goes to work. He delivers several stomps to Jones and goes for a standing moonsault! JONES HIS KNEES UP! Jones gets to his feet and pulls him Landerson! He tags in Drake Jaeger and the two men hit a double suplex on Landerson! Drake seems to not be limping as he was last week, which means he’s ready to go! He picks up Landerson and delivers several knees to the gut. He picks him up and drops him neck first onto the top rope and follows it up with a viscous drop kick to the jaw! Drake sets up Landerson in the corner and charges for a running drop kick!
Mercer: HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A SECOND RUNNING DROP KICK! HE GETS BACK UP AND HITS A THIRD ON EL LANDERSON! NOW A FOURTH RUNNING DROP KICK! HE GETS UP AGAIN AND HITS A FIFTH! COULD HE BE GOING FOR THE GOLGO 13? HE CONTINUES WITH A SIXTH! HE PREPARES FOR A SEVENTH BUT HE’S SLOWING DOWN AND EL LANDERSON FALLS TO THE GROUND BEFORE HE CAN HIT ANOTHER ONE!
Ryder: Drake jumps on Landerson for the cover!
Ref: ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOO!
Ryder: AND KELLER LEAPS TO BREAK IT UP! Keller quickly retreats by rolling out of the ring as both El Landerson and Drake Jaeger return to their feet! Drake is up and El Landerson hits a running drop kick that catches him off guard! Jaeger is knocked back against the turnbuckle… GAE BOLG! DRAKE JAEGER CHARGES FORWARD FOR A BIG SPEAR ON EL LANDERSON! BUT NOW MAXWELL DACHS ENTERS THE RING AND HITS AN ENZUIGIRI TO THE BACK OF DRAKE’S HEAD WHILE HE ISN’T LOOKING!
Mercer: Dachs leaves the ring as Drake stumbles… AND LUZMALA TAGS HIMSELF IN! Luzmala slowly approaches El Landerson! El Landerson gets up and stares directly at Luzmala!
Landerson (Without a mic.): I won’t to face you right now at Showdown Redemption Show FPV Show in a prove my love match at Showdown Redemption Show in a steel cage so I can prove my love to Maria Gonzales by beating you in a steel cage match at Showdown Redemption FPV Show.
Mercer: Landerson is fueled by his burning love for Maria Gonzales… HE STEPS BACK AND CHARGES AT LUZMALA! SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR HER LANDERSON!
Ryder: LANDERSON BRAVELY CHARGES FORWARD… CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL! MY GOD! LUZMALA NEARLY TEARS LANDERSON’S HEAD OFF! HE PICKS UP LANDERSON LIKE A RAG DOLL AND THROWS HIM BACK FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER OF TEAM DCW! Landerson reaches for the tag to Maxwell Dachs… who backs away! He tags in Keller instead and Keller is in disbelief that Landerson did that!
Mercer: Keller enters the ring! HE RUNS AT LUZMALA! SINGLE LEG DROPKICK! LUZMALA STAGGERS BACKWARDS! KELLER HITS ANOTHER SINGLE LEG DROP KICK! KELLER GETS TO HIS FEET… PELE KICK! BUT LUZMALA IS STILL STANDING! KELLER IS IN SHOCK BUT HE GOES FOR THE FLAT LINE! A SIT OUT SPINEBUSTER… AND LUZMALA ELBOWS HIM RIGHT IN THE HEAD! HE PICKS UP KELLER… POWER BOMB! HE PICKS HIM UP AGAIN… ANOTHER POWERBOMB…. AND HE HITS A THIRD POWERBOMB! LUZMALA NOW GOES TO HIS CORNER AND TAGS IN TIBERIUS JONES AS MAXWELL DACHS ENTERS THE RING AND DRAGS KELLER TO HIS CORNER WHERE DACHS HAS LANDERSON TAG HIMSELF IN!
Ryder: Landerson stumbles towards Tiberius and throws several right punches! EL LANDERSON STEPS BACK TO CHARGE AT TIBERIUS JONES! BUT JONES CHARGES AT LANDERSON AND HITS A RUNNING ENZUIGIRI! DACHS IS IN DISBELIEF AS RINGSIDE! NOTHING TEAM DCW IS DOING SEEMS TO BE WORKING! Tiberius picks up Landerson… BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! TIBERIUS IS NOW GETTING READY TO FINISH OFF EL LANDERSON! WAIT! SOMEBODY JUST JUMPED THE BARRICADE!
Mercer: THEY ENTER THE RING BEHIND TIBERIUS JONES! IS THAT VENOM?! JONES TURNS AROUND… A SUPERKICK! THE INJECTION HITS! VENOM NOW RUNS OUT OF THE RING AND JUMPS THE BARRICADE AS DRAKE JAEGER TRIES TO CHASE HIM DOWN BUT DACHS CUTS HIM OFF! THE TWO THROW PUNCHES AS ONE ANOTHER AS THE BELL RINGS! TEAM DCW WAS DISQUALIFIED FOR THAT INTERFERENCE!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Ring Announcer: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS BY DISQUALIFICATION… TIBERIUS JONES, LUZMALA, AND DRAKE JAEGER… HEXA-GUN!
Ryder: HEXA-GUN WINS! LOOK IN THE RING! LUZMALA ENTERS IT! HE WALKS TOWARDS LANDERSON AS KELLER BEGINS TO ATTACK DRAKE AT RINGSIDE AS DACHS ENTERS THE RING! KELLER HITS A ELBOW ON DRAKE AND ROLLS HIM INTO THE RING! LANDERSON NOW GETS UP AND ALL OF TEAM DCW TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO LUZMALA! LANDERSON AND KELLER CHARGE AT LUZMALA… DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE! LUZMALA TAKES BOTH MEN DOWN AT ONCE! DACHS LOOKS ON SHOCKED AS HE BACKS AWAY! LUZMALA STEPS TOWARDS HIM AND DACHS SLIDES OUT OF THE RING AND RUNS INTO THE CROWD JUST AS VENOM DID!
Mercer: DACHS CONTINUES TO RUN BUT HE LOOKS BACK! LUZMALA GRABS LANDERSON… NO DIOS! LUZMALA NOW PICKS UP KELLER… ANOTHER NO DIOS! LUZMALA IS DECIMATING TEAM DCW AS MAXWELL DACHS LOOKS ON IN FEAR!
Ryder: Dachs continues to look at the ring in horror as that little trick of his with Venom interfering backfired as the rest of Team DCW lay in the ring destroyed by Luzmala! Tiberius Jones and Drake Jaeger join Luzmala as they stand in the ring triumphant! If Team DCW couldn’t stop these guys, then who will?
( Camera cuts backstage to Corporate HRDO standing backstage in his office with a pleasant grin on his face )
HRDO: Good evening ladies and gentlemen, it is I, your Vice President of Elite Answers Wrestling, HRDO. I hope you’re all enjoying the show so far, and I can’t wait for you to see what we’ve got ahead. Now as you all know we at EAW have put forth effort in incentivizing higher levels of competition through out every division in EAW. Therefore I have got a very special announcement regarding the tag team division!
We are in search of new number one contenders to the EAW Tag Team Championships… and instead of taking the traditional route of appointing contenders… INSTEAD in two weeks time EAW will be hosting an interbranded, interpromotional TAG TEAM TOURNAMENT to decide which team will vie for the EAW Tag Team Championships! Teams from any brand, of any division, of any brand and from any company will be able to insert themselves into this tournament. The brackets will be filled up to any team in a first come, first serve basis. Tournament matches will take place on Showdown, Voltage and Battleground, and the finals will take place at Road To Redemption NINE!
Good luck to all the tag teams getting involved in this tournament, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
( HRDO flashes a wicked grin to the camera and the screen returns to the ringside area )
(“I Don’t Care” begins to play as the crowd begins to cheer. The lights in the arena darken and slowly brighten back up as Brett Kennedy appears on the stage with Aria Jaxon. Brett Kennedy looks around the arena confidently before he walks down the ramp and into the ring. Aria Jaxon follows him but stops at ringside as both turn their attention towards the stage.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, weighing 267 pounds… accompanied to the ring by Aria Jaxon…. BRETTTTTT KENNNEEEEDDYYYYYYY!!
Ryder: After several weeks of rising tension between Bretty Kennedy and Thomas Minns, these two men will finally meet here at Showdown Redemption.
(Legend by Drake plays throughout the arena as the crowd begins to give a mixed reaction. Thomas Minns walks onto the stage while smirking. He laughs at the fans booing him before turning his attention to Brett Kennedy. He walks down the ramp and into the ring while continuing to stare down his opponent.)
Ryder: You know bro Thomas Minns kind of called this beef upon himself, all he had to do was shake BK’s hand last week instead of being such an immature girl about it!
Mercer: Why should Minns have to shake hands with a LOSER like Brett Kennedy? Until Kennedy starts winning his own matches he’s going to have to show some more respect to his superiors, and that includes Minns who’s been on a heck of a run!
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, from Seattle, Washington, weighing 220 pounds…. THOMMMMASSSS MINNNSSSSS!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Mercer: Here we go. Brett Kennedy and Thomas Minns are ready to decide which one of them is the best among them. Aria Jaxon cheers on Brett from ringside as both men lock up in the middle of the ring! Thomas Minns pushes Brett Kennedy back into the referee! The referee has to get out from behind the two men.. RAKE TO THE EYES! Thomas Minns is already playing dirty and the ref didn’t see it! Brett grabs for his eyes while Thomas leans his head down and delivers a knee right to the jaw! Thomas Minns now delivers a big blow to the gut! Thomas continues to go to work as he delivers several punches to Brett Kennedy who’s still shaken! Thomas now grabs Brett and hits a Shoulder Jawbreaker! Thomas goes for the early pin!
Ref: ONEEEEE! KICKOUT!
Ryder: A quick kick out by Brett! Thomas goes to lift up Brett but Brett responds with several punches to the midsection that catch Minns off guard! Brett now straights up and hits a punch to the jaw of Thomas Minns! Brett steps back and goes for a forearm smash! THOMAS DUCKS AND KNEES HIM IN THE STOMACH! HE PULLS HIM IN AND HITS A SNAP DDT! THOMAS GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOO!
Ryder: Kick out! Thomas will have to do a lot more than that if he is to defeat Brett Kennedy. Brett gets to his feet and Thomas grabs him behind! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE! BRETT DELIVERS AN ELBOW! BRETT NOW BREAKS FREE OF THE HOLD! HE STEPS BACK AND HITS A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE ON THOMAS MINNS THAT SENDS BOTH MEN TUMBLING OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Mercer: The referee begins to count. Brett Kennedy stumbles to his feet as he regains himself. Thomas gets up as well. THE BUCK STOPS HERE! BRETT KENNEDY RUNS THROUGH HIM WITH A BIG BOOT AS SOON AS HE GOT UP! THOMAS IS KNOCKED OVER THE STEEL STEPS! Thomas begins to crawl and it looks like he slipped his hand under the ring. The referee is focusing on Brett Kennedy as he reaches a count of 5!
Mercer: Brett now goes around the steel steps and lifts up Thomas… BUT THOMAS HITS A HUGE RIGHT PUNCH THAT KNOCKS BRETT KENNEDY COMPLETELY DOWN! Thomas immediately dives back down and it looks like threw…. SOME BRASS KNUCKLES BACK UNDER THE RING! I don’t even believe the referee saw it. All he could see from the ring was Thomas punching Brett.
Ref: SEVEN! EIGHT!
Ryder: Thomas Minns rolls Brett into the ring. Brett stumbles to his feet… A HUGE BIG BOOT PLANTS BRETT! I THINK THOMAS WAS TRYING TO MIMIC WHAT BRETT DID TO HIM MOMENTS AGO! HE NOW HOOKS A LEG AND HE’S GOING TO STEAL ANOTHER WIN THANKS TO HIS TRICKS!
Ref: ONEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO! THR-
Mercer: KICKOUT! BRETT KICKS OUT AGAIN! THOMAS MINNS JUMPS UP IN A RAGE! He pleads with the referee but to no avail! He decides to wait for Brett to return to his feet. Brett does that with help from the ropes and Thomas hits a knife edge chop! He hits another one! HE PULLS HIM IN! GOD OF IMMORTALITY! A DOUBLE UNDER HOOK BACKBREAKER! THOMAS COVERS BRETT! THIS COULD BE IT RIGHT HERE!
Ref: ONEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!
Ryder: BRETT KICKS OUT! THOMAS PICKS HIM UP AND GOES FOR THE CREDIBILITY STATEMENT! NO! BRETT FIGHTS HIM OFF WITH SEVERAL ELBOWS! BRETT NOW QUICKLY PICKS HIM UP FOR A SCOOP SLAM! BRETT NOW PULLS THOMAS BACK TO HIS FEET! HE BRINGS TO HIS SHOULDERS… SCOOP SLAM! BRETT NOW PICKS UP THOMAS AND TAUNTS HIM! MOVE THEFT! HE PULLS IN THOMAS FOR HIS OWN MOVE… CREDIBILITY STATEMENT! THE HANGMAN’S DDT HITS! BRETT COVERS!
Ref: ONEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Mercer: KICKOUT! Brett looks on with discontent and he lifts up Thomas. A smirk crosses his face… HE SETS HIM UP FOR BK’S SEAL OF APPROVAL! HE PATS THOMAS ON THE BACK AND PETS HIS HAIR AS ANOTHER GRIN CROSSES HIS FACE! BK’S SEAL OF APPROVAL— THOMAS FIGHTS HIM OFF WITH SEVERAL ELBOWS… AND THOMAS SHOVES BRETT INTO THE REFEREE! THAT LOOKED DELIBERATE! Thomas rolls out of the ring and digs under the ring… he has those brass knuckles again!
Ryder: This isn’t good. The ref is down! Brett stumbles to his feet. Thomas is in the ring with the brass knuckles… HE SWINGS AT BRETT! BRETT DUCKS! HE GRABS THOMAS FROM BEHIND AND HITS A BACKSTABBER! THE REF GRABS THE BRASS KNUCKLES AND THROWS THEM OUT SIDE! HE BEGINS TO PULL THOMAS TO HIS FEET…. LOW BLOW! BEHIND THE REFEREES BACK! THOMAS MINNS HITS BRETT RIGHT IN THE GROIN! THOMAS WILL DO ANYTHING FOR THE WIN… AND HE ROLLS BRETT UP FOR THE SMALL PACKAGE! THE REFEREE IS UP AND HE COUNTS!
Ref: ONEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Mercer: THE THREE COUNT!… BRETT REVERSES IT INTO A SMALL PACKAGE OF HIS OWN RIGHT BEFORE THE THREE! THE REFEREE STARTS TO COUNT AGAIN!
Reg: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Mercer: BRETT DOES IT! HE BEAT THOMAS MINNS AT HIS OWN GAME!
(“I Don’t Care” begins to play as the crowd jumps to their feet. Brett Kennedy rolls out of the ring where he begins to celebrate with Aria Jaxon. Thomas Minns looks on shocked at Brett Kennedy as anger befalls him.)
Ring Announcer: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. BRETTTTTT KENNNEEEDDYYYY!
Ryder: One dirty trick after another leading up to that low blow to the end made me think Thomas had this won.
Mercer: I thought so too, but Brett kept fighting and when Thomas thought he stole the match for the win, Brett steals it back. I guess I’ll have to give Brett credit where it’s due!
(A replay airs of Brett reversing the small package into one of his own for the win.)
Ryder: Congratulations to Brett Kennedy for a great win here at Showdown Redemption.
Mercer: Thomas looked great in this match, and he’s furious that through all of those dirty tricks to win, he still came up short after a nice run he was on in the weks heading into this thing! But the momentum switched on a dime for these competitors as Kennedy pulls off his first Showdown win in a while and Minns in return takes his first loss in a while.
Ryder: Whelp, that’s what happens when you try to be a homewrecking douche like Minns! Maybe you’ll learn better next time, broski.
( Specialists Scramble match pic appears on screen )
Mercer: Still to come later tonight folks, we will find our first EVER EAW Specialists Championship! Cailin Dillon, Eris LeCava, Maria Gonzales, Haruna Sakazaki, Raven Lee, Cloud Matsuda and Lumen Gray will compete in a match that will now doubt come to the wire for that gold right there! Vixens history will be in the making!
( Cameron Ella Ava vs. Chuck Scene match pic appears on screen )
Ryder: Speaking of Vixens history — coming up right after our break is our first of four title matches set for this evening as we see if Cameron Ella Ava can make Vixens history, or if Chuck Scene makes her become history! The Interwire Championship is on the line, and that’s NEXT!
( COMMERCIAL BREAK )
(Camera transitions backstage to a determined-looking Ares Vendetta, dressed in his ring gear, as he sits upon a chair in his locker room)
Ares: Is he here?
(Bishop – dressed in her usual blood-red clothes – steps into view of the camera, behind Ares with a look of contempt on her face)
Bishop: …. He is.
(Ares stands up and doesn’t bother turning to Bishop)
Ares: I want him to see it. I want him out there to see what I’ve built for him: a World where the people who wronged him are punished. I want him to see what I do to Vic tonight, and I want him out there as soon as possible.
(Ares and Bishop say nothing more as Ares walks off, leaving the locker room while Bishop looks on)
( We return to the arena… and the Interwire Championship graphic appears on the screen. The RA is at the center of the ring to announce the next match )
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall… AND IS FOR THE INTEEERRRWIRE CHAMPIONSHIIIIP!
(‘Sellouts’ by Breathe Carolina hits as the crowd begins to cheer. Cameron Ella Ava walks out onto the stage as the crowd explodes. Cameron holds up her hands in the air as she walks down the ramp and into the ring. She walks on the top rope and holds one arm up as she turns her attention to the ramp.)
Ring Announcer:Introducing the challenger, from Los Angeles, California… CAMMERRROOONNN ELLLLAAA AVVVAAAA!
Ryder: Here she is! Cameron Ella Ava! The former Vixen and Hall of Fame champion. She isn’t only one of the successful vixens in EAW history but one of the most successful of male and female. Tonight she looks to add the Interwire Championship to her list of accolades, and what an amazing list that would be broski!
(AWOLNATION – Run plays as the crowd lets loose deafening boos. Chuck Scene walks out onto the stage with the Interwire Championship Belt over his shoulder. He ignores the crowd as he enters the ring and looks on disgusted at Cameron Ella Ava.)
Ring Announcer: And her opponent, form Toledo Ohio, weighing 230 pounds… HE IS THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION…. CHUUUUCKKKKKK SCEEENNNEEEEEE!
Ryder: Chuck Scene is ready to defend his title, but I don’t think he even truly views Cameron as a worthy opponent, to tell you the truth bro!.
Mercer: That may be true, but with the way things have gone between these two recently, Chuck just might be proven right! He looks ready to take someone’s head off, and Chuck Scene isn’t the type to hesitate decapitating any man, woman or child on earth! That is a BAD man approaching that ring, and he’s set to defend everything he’s worked for!
( Chuck Scene enters the ring and hands the referee his Interwire Championship before giving a deathly stare to Cameron Ella Ava. The official raises the belt in the air, hands it to a ringside worker and calls for the bell )
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Mercer: This Interwire Championship match is now underway! Chuck Scene makes the first move as he goes for a running clothesline! Cameron ducks! Chuck recovers and runs at Cameron again and goes for an enzuigiri… CAMERON DUCKS AGAIN! CHUCK TURNS BACK TO CAMERON WHO RUNS AND JUMPS OFF THE SECOND ROPE FOR A SPRING BOARD BODY SPLASH! CHUCK GETS TO HIS FEET AND CAMERON GETS HIM AGAIN WITH A RUNNING HEAD SCIZZORS!
Ryder: Cam is SO FAST, bro! Her speed is up there with some of the fastest to ever step foot in the ring! I’m talking about the Viper’s and young Robbie V level of speed! Chuck gets to his feet as he stumbles into the corner. CAMERON NOW CHARGES AT CHUCK AND HITS A RUNNING THRUST KICK RIGHT TO THE JAW! SHE NOW GETS UP AND HITS A RUNNING HIGH KNEE TO CHUCK! SHE BACKS UP AND HITS ANOTHER ONE FOR GOOD MEASURE! SHE PULLS CHUCK IN AND HITS A BRIDGING NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!
Mercer: Chuck kicks out FEROCIOUSLY! Cameron waits for him to get up. She goes for an elbow but Chuck blocks it and responds with a european uppercut! CHUCK NOW CHARGES FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT CAMERON DUCKS AND DODGES AGAIN! CHUCK SPINS AROUND AND CAMERON JUMPS ON THE ROPE FOR A RUNNING SPRINGBOARD MOON SAULT ON CHUCK SCENE! CHUCK GETS TO HIS KNEES AND CAMERON GRABS HIM AND HITS A SNAP DDT!
Ryder: Cameron goes to the top rope again! JESUS SHE’S GOING ALL OUT! NOT EVEN GIVING ROOM TO BREATHE! This time she goes for a moonsault.. CONNECTS!!!. CHUCK GETS HIS KNEES UP! CHUCK FINALLY GETS A HIT IN AFTER CAMERON ELUDED HIM FOR SO LONG! CAMERON GETS UP AND GETS RUN OVER WITH A BICYCLE KICK! CAMERON IS STUNNED AND BEGINS TO FALL BUT CHUCK CATCHES HER! BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! CHUCK SENDS CAM FLYING! CAM ROLLS OUT OF THE RING FROM THE FORCE OF THE SUPLEX! She slowly starts to rise…. AND CHUCK FOLLOWS UP WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE THAT SENDS CAM BACK FIRST INTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE!
Mercer: Chuck follows her out of the ring, picks her up and Cameron and slides her into the ring where he goes for the cover!
Ref: ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Ryder: CAMERON ELLA AVA KICKS OUT! Chuck picks up Cam and throws her into the corner! RUNNING CLOTHESLINE INTO HIS CORNERED OPPONENT! NOBODY HOME, CAM DODGES AND CHUCK HITS THE CORNER HARD! Chuck comes right back after her though and grabs her by the hair and LIFTS HER UP FOR A POWER BOMB… HURRICANRANA! CAMERON COUNTERED IT INSTANTLY! CAMERON NOW SLOWLY MAKES HER WAY TO THE TOP ROPE! CHUCK SCENE IS ON HIS FEET AND CAMERON JUMPS! FLYING CROSSBODY! CAMERON TURNS IT INTO A COVER! WE COULD HAVE A NEW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!
Ref: OENEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO! THR-
Mercer: SO CLOSE! CHUCK KICKS OUT JUST BEFORE THE COUNT OF THREE! Cameron plots what she is going to do next! Chuck is getting up and Cameron is ready… GODDESS TOUCH! NO! CHUCK DUCKS! HE NOW GRABS CAMERON FROM BEHIND AND HITS A GERMAN SUPLEX! CHUCK IS GETTING FRUSTRATED! Cameron begins to make it back to her feet as Chuck is ready to attack. Cam’s up… BICYCLE KICK! OH NO!… CAM DUCKS! CHUCK HITS THE REFEREE WITH THE BICYCLE KICK! THE REF IS DOWN! CHUCK TURNS AROUND AS CAM GOES FOR THE GODDESS TOUCH AGAIN! CHUCK DUCKS AND HITS A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE TO TAKE DOWN CAMERON!
Mercer: Chuck is shocked, he just took out the referee… but that shock Turns into a sinister grin that’s just crossed his face! What is he thinking? He leaves the ring and digs underneath the apron facing the ramp… AND PULLS OUT HIS SIGNATURE LOCK IN A SOCK! HE ENTERS THE RING READY TO USE IT! CAMERON STUMBLES TO HER FEET! HE SWINGS! OH GOD NO!… CAM DUCKS! THANK GOD! SHE DUCKED AT THE LAST SECOND! CHUCK TURNS AROUND IN A PANIC… CAM KICKS THE LOCK OUT OF HIS HANDS AND HITS A SPIN KICK BELOW THE BELT!

Ref: ONEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Ryder: CAMERON DOES IT!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Mercer: CAMERON ELLA AVA HAS WON THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!
(‘Sellouts’ by Breathe Carolina hits as the crowd explodes in applause and cheers as they jump to their feet. Cameron gets up as he turns to see the referee handing her the Interwire Championship Belt. She looks at it shocked as she finally grabs it. She climbs to the top rope as he holds up the title. She then clutches it tightly as he continues to celebrate.)
Mercer: I can’t believe what I’ve just witnessed! Cameron Ella Ava has made HISTORY! SHE IS THE NEW EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!!!
Ryder: Cameron Ella Ava pulled out all the stops and in the end won by using Chuck Scene’s own weapon against him! What an AMAZING feat, Cameron Ella Ava is now the first Vixen ever to hold a male singles title, barring the Hall of Fame title, in EAW HISTORY!
Mercer: Cameron continues to make history and I’m sure as usual she’ll be the standard bearer for all women who come into this business. I can’t even be mad at how she won it, she played Chuck’s game and beat him at it! She gets my props!
Ryder: HANG ON A MINUTE! WE HAVE A REPORT COMING FROM BACKSTAGE!
( Camera cuts backstage to King Lannister’s personal lockerroom … where he is laid out on the ground in a pool of his own blood with medical staff surrounding him, rushing to his aid )
Mercer: WHAT THE HELL??? KING LANNISTER’S DRENCHED IN A POOL OF HIS OWN BLOOD!!! WHAT HAPPENED!?!?
Ryder: YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING, BRO…
Mercer: WHO COULD HAVE DONE THIS!?
Ryder: WHO DO YOU THINK!? IT HAD TO BE XAV! WHO ELSE WOULD STOOP TO THESE LENGTHS!?
( Lannister is being worked on by frantic medical workers and the camera cuts back to the commentators )
Mercer: That looked AWFUL… how the hell is Lannister gonna make it for the main event!?
Ryder: Simple, he’s not! There’s NO WAY King Lannister can compete tonight, the man’s in severely bad shape, like he was just hit by a bus!
Mercer: We’ll keep you folks updated with the developments as we get them… I just really didn’t see that coming. I don’t even know what to think!
( Mexican Samurai vs. Pizza Boy feud video package plays, showing clips of Samurai speaking out against Pizza Boy’s booking and him being chosen to be involved in FPV matches while he sits on the sidelines. It shows Samurai “befriending” Pizza Boy without PB’s knowledge of his ulterior motives, until Samurai turns on Pizza Boy in a tag team match. Pizza Boy’s challenge to a fight to Samurai is shown, and it transitions to Pizza Boy’s search for Samurai leading into a brawl spanning the arena and the crowd area. It finally ends with their final altercation being announced for tonight’s show, and the stipulation is the biggest highlight: an I Quit match. )
( Camera heads up to the Ring Announcer standing in the middle of the ring )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Ring Announcer: This following match ISSS ANNNN IIII QUIT MATCH!!! The only way to win is to for one of the competitors to be forced into uttering the words “I QUIT”!
( Mattias IA Eklundh – “That’s Amore” hits as The Pizza Boy comes out to the ring, but not in his usual attire, rather in tattered jeans and a shirt saying “Special Delivery, Motherf*cker” as he’s wielding a kendo stick and walks down to the ring )
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from New York City, New York weighing 175 POOOOUNNDSSS… THEEEEEEEEEE PIZZAAAAAA BOOOOOOOOOYYY!!!
Ryder: Whoa! This looks like a brand new, more rugged Pizza Boy!
Mercer: This rivalry between this young man and The Mexican Samurai has caused Pizza Boy to revert to actions I’m sure most of us didn’t think he’d be capable of! Pizza Boy’s definitely been pushed to the brink by Samurai, and I’ve got a feeling things may only get worse before they get better!
Ryder: You’ve gotta admire Pizza Boy, he’s fighting for respect! He’s got a fire in his eyes that frankly I couldn’t have imagined him having! He’s come such a long way from being that scared, cowardly little rascal… but his biggest test may just be tonight! This match will test your character more than any other match in EAW, because there’s only one way out!
( Pizza Boy is circling the ring wielding his weapon … soon after, “Forever and a Day” by High Contrast hits and Mexican Samurai walks out through the curtain with a stoic look on his face before he cracks his neck, cracks his knuckles and approaches the ring )
Ring Announcer: His opponent… from San Jose, California weighing 210 POOOOOOOOUNDS… “THE UNWRESTLER” .. THEEEE MEXICAAAAAAAAAAN SAMURAAAAAAAAAAIIIIII!!!
Mercer: Samurai’s definitely been pushed as well when you think about it, this was a man who seemed to have every bit of drive zapped out of him and now suddenly he’s got some incentive dragged out of him by the most unlikely of foils–
Ryder: HOLD THAT THOUGHT BROSKI! PIZZA BOY RUSHES OUT OF THE RING AND CHARGES UP THE RAMP WITH THE KENDO STICK, AND HE GOES TO WORK ON SAMURAI SWATTING THAT KENDO STICK INTO SAMURAI OVER AND OVER AGAIN! THE FIGHT IS ON!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Mercer: SAMURAI IS EATING THOSE KENDO STICK SHOTS ON HIS ARMS AND HIS TORSO, DESPERATELY TRYING TO BLOCK SHOTS! PIZZA BOY SWINGS A SHOT FOR THE SIDE OF THE HEAD — But Samurai CATCHES the Kendo stick with his hand and hits a BIG KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION OF PIZZA BOY! Pizza Boy collapses momentarily and Samurai shakes off all of the pain he’s been inflicted by those swats, no doubt those shots will leaves marks! Samurai has a hold of that cane and SWATS IT OVER THE BACK OF PIZZA BOY! Pizza Boy retreats and Samurai comes after him as they come right back to ringside… but Pizza Boy nails an elbow to the midsection of Samurai! Samurai backs away, and Pizza Boy charges at him and leaps on him hitting a flurry of rights and lefts while Samurai’s still standing!
Ryder: Samurai SHOVES Pizza Boy off of him and retreats! Pizza Boy digs under the ring apron and pulls out another Kendo stick and HE GOES AFTER SAMURAI! PB CHARGES AT SAMURAI — BUT SAMURAI CUTS HIM OFF WITH A SPIN KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! Pizza Boy’s stunned by that kick and Samurai grabs him by the head… RUNS ACROSS RINGSIDE, AND SENDS PIZZA BOY FLINGING INTO THE BARRICADE SPINE FIRST!!! NOW SAMURAI SCRAPES HIM UP FROM THE GROUND, JOGS ACROSS RINGSIDE WITH PIZZA BOY, AND FLINGS HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE OTHER BARRICADE! Pizza Boy collapses and rolls around with searing pain shooting up his spine, and Samurai hovers over him sending a flurry of shots down at his opponent!
Mexican Samurai: QUIT!-QUIT!-QUIT!-QUIT!-QUIT!
Mercer: Those punches are hammered down with each word! Pizza Boy is trying to protect himself, but Samurai’s such a skilled striker that Pizza Boy’s really got no proper defense for those blows! The referee is sticking nearby to make sure he’s within earshot of both competitors for obvious reasons. Samurai scrapes Pizza Boy up from the ground now and rolls him into the ring… Samurai follows through while PB does his best to quickly recover, but Samurai DRILLS HIM with some muay thai knees! Pizza Boy is WRITHING in pain, it’s easy to forget sometimes that this young man hasn’t even been in the business for too long, and he’s going up against essentially a veteran in the world of wrestling! There’s a massive gap in experience between the two of them, and that will come to Samurai’s favor!
Ryder: Samurai drags Pizza Boy up and PLANTS HIM WITH A BACK SUPLEX! Pizza Boy’s back seems to be a weak area this far, and Pizza Boy’s rolling around holding that back until Samurai STOMPS onto PB’s spine, steps over him disrespectfully, runs the ropes and hits a PUNT KICK STRAIGHT TO THE RIBS!!!! Pizza Boy rolls away holding the bottom rope, wheezing and writhing from the sharp sting of those kicks… Samurai rolls out of the ring now right in front of us and digs underneath the ring… IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GOT HIMSELF A METAL TRASHCAN! Samurai’s got some dirty thoughts going into this match bro!
Mercer: Only you would go for that joke.
Ryder: Well dirty? trash? Trashcan? Give me a break, man.
Mercer: Pizza Boy’s recovering here and Samurai’s back in the ring with the trashcan which he drops to rush up to PB from behind… HE GOES FOR ANOTHER BACK SUPLEX, BUT PIZZA BOY SWINGS BACK ELBOWS INTO THE HEAD! ONE ELBOW MAY HAVE JUST BUSTED SAMURAI’S LEFT EYE OPEN! NOW PIZZA BOY MIGHT BE GOING FOR THE PIZZA CUTTER!!!!! HE GOT IT! KNEELING ACE CRUSHER! AND NOW PIZZA BOY BRIDGES HIMSELF BACK UP AND RUNS TO THE CORNER TO GO FOR THE PIZZA 2 GO — BUT SAMURAI COUNTERS, SHOVING PIZZA BOY OFF AT THE TOP CORNER FOR PIZZA BOY TO LAND SEATED AT THE TOP ROPE… AND SAMURAI LEAPS AND YANKS THE BACK OF PIZZA BOY’S HEAD AS IT GOES BUMPING INTO THE 2ND TURNBUCKLE! Pizza Boy is hung in the tree of woe and could potentially have his bell rung by that collision with the back of his head meeting the turnbuckle!… and now Samurai grabs that trashcan and COVERS HIS TORSO WITH IT! NOW SAMURAI’S CALLING FOR PIZZA BOY TO QUIT! PIZZA BOY WON’T DO IT! SAMURAI RUSHES ACROSS THE RING AND SPRINTS BACK FOR THE JUMPING DROPKICK INTO THE TRASHCAN!!!
Ryder: OHHH that one HAD to hurt! Pizza Boy rolls out of the ring in a heap after taking that STIFF dropkick… he might just be busted open! Pizza Boy removes his torso from the trashcan and reveals a cut on his forehead… now the referee approaches him with a mic.
Ref: Pizza Boy, do you quit!?
Ryder: …. Pizza Boy shakes his head, he’s REFUSING to quit! Samurai is on one knee witnessing PB’s defiance and now he springs over the ropes down to ringside…. he approaches Pizza Boy, looking down at him as Pizza Boy is using Samurai’s ring trunks to help himself back up. Now Samurai yanks PB up and hits a RIGHT HAND right into that cut, busting him open even more! Pizza Boy stumbles over to the ramp and Samurai comes back after him and goes for a SCOOP SLAM …. BUT PIZZA BOY SLIDES DOWN THE BACK AND SHOVES SAMURAI, SENDING SAMURAI HEAD FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST! OH! THAT SKULL BOUNCES RIGHT OFF THE METAL RINGPOST! Samurai is knocked for a loop, and Pizza Boy buys himself some time after that one! Samurai rolls in the ring holding his head, completely dazed after that THUD that sent Samurai crashing into the post!
Mercer: Pizza Boy’s digging deep within himself to even continue and he’s now digging under the ring apron slowly but surely while Samurai recovers, and after a moment Samurai exits the ring just to meet — A FIRE EXTINGUISHER SHOT TO THE GUT!!!! AND PIZZA BOY SPRAYS THE CONTENTS OF THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER RIGHT INTO SAMURAI’S FACE!!! SAMURAI’S KNOCKED BACKWARDS AS A THICK CLOUD OF FOG SEPARATES SAMURAI FROM PIZZA BOY! Samurai gets back up, still holding his ribs… AND PIZZA BOY RUNS THROUGH THE SMOKE WITH A PIZZA SLICER IN HAND THAT HE GOT FROM UNDER THE RING!!! PIZZA BOY SWINGS THE SLICER AT SAMURAI! SAMURAI BLOCKS IT WITH HIS GLOVED HAND, BUT SAMURAI TURNS AROUND AND PIZZA BOY SLICES RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE OF SAMURAI’S BACK! HOOOOOLY CRAP! SAMURAI’S IN A WORLD OF HURT FOLLOWING THOSE ATTACKS, AND THE REFEREE COMES UP TO HIM!
Ref: SAMURAI, DO YOU QUIT!?
Ryder: SAMURAI SHOVES THE OFFICIAL AWAY AND RUSHES TO THE APRON … BUT SOMEHOW PIZZA BOY HAS BEAT HIM INTO THE RING, AND AS SAMURAI ENTERS THE RING PIZZA BOY HITS A RUNNING DROPKICK SENDING SAMURAI UP AND OVER THE ROPES — BUT SAMURAI’S ARMS GET CAUGHT IN THE RING ROPES! THE ROPES SEEM TO HAVE MALFUNCTIONED AND THE TOP AND MIDDLE ROPE HAVE GOT SAMURAI’S ARMS TIED UP AS HE’S HANGING AT RINGSIDE IN A CRUCIFIX POSITION!
Mercer: Pizza Boy smells blood in the water!
Ryder: Damn right he does! Pizza Boy gingerly exits the ring, but look what he’s got with him… it’s the Kendo stick from earlier!!!! AND NOW PIZZA BOY SWINGS THE STICK AS HARD AS HE CAN INTO SAMURAI’S RIBS!!! HE’S YELLING “QUIT” BETWEEN EACH SWAT! SAMURAI IS SHAKING, TRYING TO ESCAPE THE ROPES AT ALL COSTS, BUT PIZZA BOY SWINGS STRAIGHT INTO HIS RIBS, HIS CHEST, SCREAMING AND DEMANDING FOR SAMURAI TO QUIT! PIZZA BOY SWINGS HIS FOURTH SHOT! NOW HIS FIFTH! …. HIS SIXTH! …. SEVENTH! SAMURAI IS REFUSING TO QUIT HOWEVER, SO PIZZA BOY BACKS AWAY…. OHHHHHHHHHHH CHRIST!!! PIZZA BOY STABS SAMURAI’S GROIN WITH THE KENDO STICK! HE SPIKES THE HEAD OF THE STICK INTO SAMURAI’S GROIN, AND HITS IT SO HARD THE WEAKENED KENDO STICK SNAPS IN HALF! SAMURAI’S EYES ARE PRACTICALLY BUGGING OUT OF HIS SKULL!
( The referee frees Samurai from the ropes )
Mercer: SICKENING! That was just nasty! Samurai drops from the ropes to his knees at ringside just in a world of hurt! Pizza Boy himself is pretty fatigued, collapsing to a knee with the remnants of the kendo stick in hand. These two have taken each other to places they’ve never been before and who knows where else they’re willing to go!?
Ryder: Pizza Boy limps over to the apron in front of the ramp and flips it up…. and PIZZA BOY PULLS OUT A TABLE! LOOKS LIKE HE’S PULLING OUT THE STOPS NOW! OHHHH!!! OH!!!! HE’S GOT A GALLON OF LIGHTER FLUID OUT AS WELL!!!!!
Mercer: WHAT!? HE’S NOT REALLY……..
Ryder: OH, HE IS! PIZZA BOY’S SETTING UP THAT TABLE PARALLEL TO THE APRON, RIGHT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP….. AND HE DUMPS THE FLUID OVER IT!!!! PIZZA BOY SETS THE TABLE ON FIRE!!!!!
Mercer: THIS CROWD IS LOVING IT, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? SO AM I! I NEVER THOUGHT THE KID HAD THE BALLS, BUT FOR THE UPTEENTH TIME HE’S PROVING ME WRONG!
Ryder: Pizza Boy drags Samurai into the ring with all his might, and Pizza Boy charges into the ring, runs the ropes and hits a BASEBALL SLIDE SENDING SAMURAI ROLLING TO THE APRON! SAMURAI NEARLY ROLLED OUT OF THE RING INTO THE FLAMING TABLE!!! SAMURAI NARROWLY CATCHES HIMSELF BEFORE LANDING ON THAT FLAMING TABLE! NOW PIZZA BOY COMES AFTER HIM ON THE APRON………. PIZZA BOY DRAGS SAMURAI UP TO HIS FEET AND HAS A HOOK OF HIS HEAD!!!!!!! HE’S GOING FOR THE PIZZA 2 GO OFF THE APRON!!!!!!! PIZZA 2 GO OFF THE APRON INTO THE FLAMING TABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mercer: NO!!!!!!!!!!! SAMURAI HOISTS PIZZA BOY IN MID AIR AND COUNTERS WITH THE MEXICAN MAELSTROM!!!!!!! 360 SPINNING BRAINBUSTER OFF THE APRON THROUGH THE FLAMING TABLE!!!!!!!! MY GODDDDDDDDDDD!!!!
Ryder: JESUS CHRIST IN HEAVEN, WHAT THE HELL, MAN! PIZZA BOY IS DEAD! HELL, THE BOTH OF THEM MIGHT BE DEAD! THAT WAS UNREAL!!!!
( EMT’s rush to the scene to spray down the flames, and Samurai sits up trembling as Pizza Boy rolls to the bottom of the ramp sheerly out of momentum, but is out of commission )
Mercer: WE NEED A REPLAY OF THAT IMPACT! THAT WAS ONE OF THE MOST BRUTAL COUNTER-ATTACKS I HAVE EVER SEEN!
( REPLAY: The Pizza Boy attempts the Pizza 2 Go dudley dog off the apron, but Samurai counters it in midair with the 360 Brainbuster through the flaming table )
( A moment passes by where medics are surrounding Pizza Boy, who is drenched in blood and barely stirring with his eyes finally open. Mexican Samurai drags himself up to his feet with the support of the apron. )
Ryder: I’ve got to give even Samurai props for reaching his feet after that attack… I really don’t know how this match can continue! Pizza Boy’s pretty much stunned! He’s not able to move a muscle, the lights are on but who knows if anyone’s home! Pizza Boy is on all fours just completely grimacing in pain, holding his head as blood continues to pump out of the top of his skull…. BUT LOOK AT SAMURAI! SAMURAI DIGS UNDER THE APRON AND PULLS OUT A STEEL CHAIR!!!! NOW SAMURAI GOES OVER TO PIZZA BOY, EMT’S ARE BEGGING HIM NOT TO CONTINUE, BUT SAMURAI BRINGS THE STEEL CHAIR DOWN INTO THE SPINE OF PIZZA BOY!!!!
Ryder: ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT INTO THE SPINE!!!! PIZZA BOY ROLLS UP THE RAMP, THE POOR KID IS SOAKED IN BLOOD AND IS CLAMPING HIS TEETH IN AGONY! SAMURAI BRINGS A THIRD CHAIRSHOT DOWN INTO THE TORSO!!!
Ryder: FOURTH CHAIRSHOT INTO THE SPINE!!! PIZZA BOY IS TRYING TO CRAWL UP THE RAMP DESPERATELY, NOT EVEN MOVING, JUST MAKING A CRAWLING MOTION TRYING TO ESCAPE, BUT SAMURAI IS RIGHT ON HIS TAIL!
Ryder: FIFTH CHAIRSHOT!!! … AND A SIXTH ONE!!! ……….. AND NOW A SEVENTH CHAIRSHOT!!! ….. EIGTH SHOT TO THE SPINE!!!! THIS IS MORE THAN ENOUGH, THE REFEREE GETS IN BETWEEN, AND PIZZA BOY IS SHAKING HIS HEAD THE ENTIRE TIME AS THE REFEREE IS BEGGING HIM TO SAY HE QUITS — SAMURAI SHOVES THE REF OUT OF THE WAY, NINTH CHAIRSHOT!!! TENTH!!!! ELEVENTH!!!! MORE!!!! AND MORE!!! AND MORE!!!!! THE CHAIR HAS BEEN BENT OUT OF SHAPE, AND THE REFEREE GETS IN BETWEEN THEM BOTH AGAIN!
( Another moment goes by and Samurai stands over Pizza Boy, waiting for Pizza Boy to react )
( Pizza Boy is on the ground soaked in blood, bruised, burned and dry heaving… Samurai stands over a defeated Pizza Boy with blood dripping off his black steel chair in his hand. )
( Samurai turns to the referee with a menacing grin on his face before handing the referee his bloody chair )
Samurai: I quit.
Mercer & Ryder: WHAT!?
( Samurai turns away from his bloodied, flattened, bruised and burned opponent and starts limping up the ramp as the referee calls for the bell )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Ryder: Did he just……….
Ring Announcer: The winner of this match… THE PIZZA BOY.
Ryder: HE REALLY DID… I… I DON’T UNDERSTAND!
Mercer: I think I do. Look at Pizza Boy, just look at him. What was the point? He had nothing left to begin with…
( Samurai gingerly walks through the curtain without looking back )
Ryder: But why would Samurai show Pizza Boy any mercy!?
Mercer: I don’t think this was even an act of mercy to be honest with you, I think Samurai knew the battle was already won. Pizza Boy was NOT going to quit, but Samurai knew he settled the score. Then again, who knows what’s really going on in the mind of “The Unwrestler”.
( Pizza Boy collapses on his face after attempting to walk, and medics come to his aid yet again )
Ryder: That was definitely unlike any I Quit match ending I have ever seen! I’m just glad it’s over.
( Match pic shows up on screen for the Specialists Championship Scramble match )
Mercer: Well this rivalry may have come to an end but this show DEFINITELY hasn’t! Coming up we get the debut of the brand new EAW Specialists Championship as seven hopeful Vixens look to come away with the unique and distinct piece of gold! Showdown: Redemption continues after the break!
( COMMERCIAL BREAK )
( Camera returns to the arena… as the Ring Announcer is standing at the center of the ring )
Ring Announcer: The Following contest is a Specialist Scramble Match for the EAW Specialists Championship! The rules of the match occur as follows: The match begins with all seven participants in the ring competing under a 20-minute time limit. There are no disqualifications, no count outs; the only ways to record a fall are by pinfall and submission. When a competitor has scored the opening fall in the contest, she will be declared the interim champion. After this point, the “interim champion” MUST be pinned or made to submit in order for the title to change hands during the match. The Vixen in possession of the “interim championship” once the time limit expires will be the Inaugural EAW Specialists Champion!
(The crowd cheers in approval as the new belt is shown encased in a glass display near ringside.)
Ring Announcer: And now, it is time to introduce the participants!
(The lights in the arena go completely dark)
Haruna: (off camera) . “Minna-san, Moriagatteru ha yo~! (Everybody, Put your hands up!)”
(The crowd does as she says, all of them holding red glowsticks, lighting the arena as “Dream Trigger” by Tokyo Performance Doll blasts through the venue, Haruna marching down to the ring to a huge cheer from the crowd)
Ring Announcer: Introducing First, From Tokyo, Japan…………HARUNA SAKAAAAAAAAZAKIIIIIIIIII!!!!
Ryder: This young woman, the “Pride of the Vixens Division” has come so close to capturing glory. Can she finally pull off a huge win when she needs it most and capture the EAW Specialists Championship?
Mercer: Haruna has been seen by many as being driven to the point of madness during her quest to become a champion. If she pulls it off here tonight, there’s going to be a huge party in Tokyo over the weekend….
(The lighting returns to normal as “Had Enough” by Breaking Benjamin plays through the arena, Raven Lee walking down to the ring with her eyes focused on Haruna.)
Ring Announcer: Next, from Detroit, Michigan……RAAAAAAAAAAAAAVENNNNNNNNNN LEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Ryder: The last chance qualifier.
Mercer: Raven Lee had to take the scenic route and qualify for this match by winning the Last Chance Battle Royal on Dynasty Wrestling last Friday.
Ryder: The damn sad thing is that she didn’t need Erica Ford’s help to get that done. She can win matches on her own. Keep in mind she pinned Madison during the Empress of Elite tournament.
Mercer: Another Vixen chasing her first championship in EAW. Can she follow in the footsteps of fellow Detroit native Tarah Nova and capture gold?
(Haruna and Raven face off in the center of the ring, having to be separated by a nervous referee as “Can’t Be Tamed” by Miley Cyrus plays through the arena. The Lights go out and a single beam of light appears at the entrance to reveal Lumen Gray. the light now becomes a pathway of light showing her entrance to the ring.)
Ring Announcer: From London, England………LUMEN GRAY!
Ryder: Another debutant from the summer who asserted herself during the Empress of Elite, another young woman hungry for gold!
Mercer: Lumen may seem like a bit of a joke to most of the people around her in this match with her oddball personality, but she has proven herself to be a pretty vicious and dangerous competitor..
(“Bet That I Will” by Snow Tha Product plays as Maria Gonzales makes her way down to the ring accompanied by Madison Kaline, holding up the EAW Vixens Champion as she flanks her partner, the crowd booing heavily.)
Ring Announcer: Accompanied by the EAW Vixens Champion Madison Kaline……….MARIA GONZALES!
Mercer: One of the angriest, feistiest and toughest Vixens in EAW today. Maria and Madison have been terrorizing the division ever since they formed the Dollhouse Killers and they have a chance tonight to sweep all the Vixens gold.
Ryder: I don’t think Madison is out here for “moral support” either. I think the Vixens Champion may be heard from before this match is over.
(The crowd’s cheers turn into huge cheers as “Call Me” by Blondie plays as Eris skips her way down to the ring, making sure to make her way past Madison and bumping into her as she passes by.)
Ring Announcer: Next, from Tampa, Florida….The Anti-Vixen………ERIIIIIIIISSSSSS LECAAAAAAAAAVAAAAA!!!
Ryder: Speaking of clean sweeps for championships, Eris has an opportunity to make herself a double champion in less than two weeks! She has this match tonight and has a match with Madison at Shock Value for the Vixens Championship as well!
Mercer: Madison out here to scout her opponent I’m sure.
Ryder:…..You serious right now? Really? You think Madison is out here just to scout!?
(A tornado quickly spins around on the tron, twirling around letters as it moves through. The letters blow into place to spell Cailin Dillon as the song “Tornado” by Little Big Town starts and Cailin comes strutting out, reacting to the crowd with a smirk as she sticks one finger in the air before placing them on her hips and starting down the ramp. She walks up the ring steps and looks out to the crowd, scanning it with a smirk before she blows a kiss and then bends over to move through the middle rope. In the ring she’ll pump a fist in the air for crowd reaction before the music fades off.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing next, From Dallas, Texas……..CAIIIIIIIILIN…….DILLLLLLLLLON!
Ryder: She’s been having disputes with both the Iconomy and HexaGun of late. Can she set aside these and focus on the match at hand?
Mercer: Cailin has all the things that Vixens champions need. The technical ability, the desire, the willingness to work. Can she capitalize on the opportunity afforded her and step totally out of the shadows of the factions she has had issues with?
(The opening riffs of “Kickstart My Heart” echo through the arena as the crowd gets up to its feet, cheering on the final participant as Cloud Matsuda makes her way down to the ring.)
Ring Announcer: And the final participant…from Tokyo, Japan………..CLOUUUUUUUUUUD MATSUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDA!!!!
Mercer: The fast rising newcomer perhaps in the entire company has a huge opportunity to snatch EAW gold here in this match. Cloud has set the ring on fire since her debut and has endeared herself to many fans!
Ryder: Having someone like her in a match like this is a huge deal I think. Stars like her and Serena Ji, who just missed out on qualifying for this match, are the future and need chances like this to learn and grow, even in a losing effort. Not saying that she can’t win it go, this little lady can wrestle!
(With all the women finally assembled in the ring, the referee calls for the bell)
(DING DING DING!!!)
Mercer: The seven women all converge on each other now and we have a wild brawl in the ring! Eris grabbing Maria Gonzales by the hair and slamming her to the mat, paint brushing her and driving her down headfirst into the canvas! Haruna and Cloud exchanging some hard strong-style elbow shots in the center of the ring! Back and forth with one another! Cailin Dillon and Raven Lee are tied up. Everyone’s engaged in something…..except for Lumen Gray! She’s perched up on one of the turnbuckles, using the ring ropes like a hammock!
Ryder: This is actually a pretty smart battle plan if you ask me. You can’t win the title within the first minute anyway, why expend all of your energy!?
Mercer: Haruna forcing Cloud back with those elbows, Cloud just taking them and demanding more though, Haruna goes for one but misses, she whirls around quickly only to eat a spinning backhand from Cloud that stops her in her tracks! And now it’s Cloud’s turn to hammer Haruna with kicks to the midsection, Haruna daring her to continue, acting as if they have little effect, but a jumping kick to the head sends Haruna staggering into the ropes and outside the ring! Cloud not wasting any time as she gets up to the top rope..Haruna staggering up to her feet…….CORKSCREW MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE ONTO HARUNA! OH MY GOD!
Ryder: Meanwhile back in the ring Raven Lee executes a perfect belly to belly suplex on Cailin Dillon. Lumen applauding as Raven darts up to her feet and locks eyes. Lumen realizes the vulnerable position she’s in and tries to reason with her. Raven Lee not having it as she runs in for a punt kick at the prone Lumen…BUT Lumen manages to land a kick of her own right to the skull of Raven Lee, stunning her momentarily! Lumen quickly gets up to her feet on the top turnbuckle! She leaps from the top turnbuckle and goes for a sunset flip but Raven manages to keep her balance and break the hold……VICIOUS CURB STOMP RIGHT TO THE CHEST OF LUMEN! MY GOD!
Mercer: All the action we’re experiencing and we’re just getting started in this match! Haruna and Cloud are back up to their feet on the outside continuing to battle! I don’t think either of them dislike one another, but there can only be one champion! Eris has Maria up to her feet, The Anti-Vixen taunting her opponent at Shock Value, Madison, but Maria manages a cheap shot to the gut and pulls in Eris for a quick Snap DDT! She goes for the cover!
Ref: ONE!! TWOOOOOOOO!! KICKOUT!
Ryder: Madison shouting encouragement at her partner, trying to cheer Maria on to an early advantage. Maria pulling up Eris to her feet…Maria looking for a side headlock…but ERIS COUNTERS INTO THE ON’NA! BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! Eris hooks the leg as Madison slides into the ring!
Ref: ONEEEEE!!! TWO!!!!
CAILIN JUST LEVELED MADISON WITH THE EYES OF TEXAS!
Ring Announcer: The interim Specialists Champion is now Eris LeCava!
Mercer: Cailin just laid out the Vixens Champion with that Superkick! I guess that negates the Advantage that Maria enjoyed, at least while Madison is out cold. Back to the action though as Raven Lee clubs both Eris and Cailin from behind! Maria and Madison roll out of the ring in retreat as Raven tries to hit Eris with a suplex! But Eris blocks it…Cailin Comes over to help…Doubleteam Vertical Suplex from the two of them on Raven Lee!
Ryder: And now both Eris and Cailin are back on their feet fighting one another! Eris throws a hard right hand but Cailin counters with one of her own! Eris looking for that belly to belly again but Cailin matches to get out of the way……..TEXAS TWO STEP! OUTTA NOWHERE! That Ace Cutter, RKO, whatever the hell you want to call it caught Eris slipping and now she’s flat out on her face in the center of the ring…HERE COMES LUMEN GRAY THOUGH, CLUBBING CAILIN FROM BEHIND WITH A DOUBLE AXEHANDLE SMASH!
Mercer: Lumen not wasting any time as she lifts up Eris from the Canvas……LIGHTBOMB! That powerbomb transitioned from a suplex and now she goes for a quick cover!
Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!!
Ryder: Haruna and Cloud in the ring for a save! Both of them pulling Lumen off…AROUND THE WORLD FROM HARUNA! Lumen groggy and stun….CLOUD KICKER FROM MATSUDA! Raven Lee back up to her feet and going at Haruna….Cloud up and turning her attention back to a prone Eris but Maria Gonzales rolls back into the ring first and goes for the pinfall…and look at this, Madison holding onto Cloud’s ankle to prevent her from making the save!
Ref: ONE!! TWO!!
ERIS GETS THE SHOULDER UP JUST IN TIME!
Mercer: Cloud finally kicks her way free of the grip of Madison and runs right into a spinning heel kick from Maria Gonzales! Haruna and Raven Lee battling, taking hard shots at each other as Lumen slips outside the ring, she seems to be digging for something?
Ryder: Meanwhile back in the ring Raven Lee is hoisting Haruna up onto the top turnbuckle but Haruna rakes the eyes, desperately trying to drive Raven back. Raven staggers back and gets a boot to the face as she comes in charging again! Raven stumbles forward as Haruna prepares a flying body press from the top rope…AND IT CONNECTS…NO! RAVEN CAUGHT HER IN MIDAIR AND COUNTERED WITH A GUTBUSTER! MY GOD! Haruna may have a cracked rib or two after that, she’s writhing around on the mat in unadulterated pain!
Ring Announcer: Fifteen Minutes remaining! Fifteen minutes!
Mercer: We’ve only seen five minutes of action and it’s turning into absolute carnage here in the ring. Raven Lee assaulting anything that moves as she stands tall in in the ring! Haruna getting stomped on those apparently injured ribs! Maria Gonzales gets taken down with a big boot, Cloud Matsuda taken off her feet with a vicious clothesline! Cailin Dillon caught with a German Suplex! Eris getting up to her feet as Raven tries another clothesline but she misses and Eris counters with a Samoan Drop! Eris back up on her feet…she gets turned around and punched! SHE FALLS TO THE MAT HARD! LUMEN GRAY PULLING OFF HER BRASS KNUCKLES! SHE MAY HAVE KNOCKED OUT ERIS AS SHE SWOOPS DOWN!
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the Interim Champion is now Lumen Gray!
Ryder: Lumen taking any advantage that she can at this point! She keeps the brass knuckles on as she waits for other competitors to get up! All she has to do is bash anyone that moves and she could be walking out here the Specialists Champion!
Mercer: Madison trying to climb into the ring, but Lumen is ready and the Vixens Champion backs off! Lumen is within less than fifteen minutes of claiming the gold! Cloud Matsuda, Haruna and Cailin all stirring as Lumen is cocking that hand like a trip hammer ready to strike….Raven Lee up to her feet first but Lumen catches her flush in the jaw! Down she goes! WAIT A MINUTE! CLOUD MATSUDA FROM BEHIND WRAPS UP LUMEN FROM BEHIND! STRAIGHT JACKET GERMAN SUPLEX! BRIDGE IS UP!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the Interim Champion is now CLOUD MATSUDA!
Mercer: Cloud waited until she caught Lumen off guard at the right time and took advantage of the opportunity! Now The Sky Princess is less than fifteen minutes away from winning her first EAW Championship and shocking the wrestling world! Lumen is up on her feet almost stunned as she looks at the referee and shouts a protest!
Ryder: Matsuda not hearing it as she dropkicks Lumen out of the ring! Haruna back up to her feet, waiting on her fellow Japanese Vixen to turn around! Matsuda sees her and tries for a jumping roundhouse kick that Haurna sidesteps! A fierce palm strike to the face! A kick to the leg that sends Cloud down to one knee…Haruna takes a few steps back and comes sprinting in…SHINING WIZARD CONNECTS!
Mercer: Matsuda falls down to the mat as Haruna is back to her feet. She’s now stalking and waiting for a chance to finish off Matsuda and take over control in this matchup! Cailin Dillon is back into this match as she takes a flying forearm straight to Haruna’s face!

Ryder: Madison gesturing at Cloud to Maria and Maria nods, handing off the kendo stick to Madison as she hoists a nearly unconscious Cloud up off the mat…SOUTHERN STRIVE CONNECTS! THAT VERTEBREAKER LIKE MANEUVER MAY HAVE JUST ENDED MATSUDA’S HOPES HERE! SHE HOOKS THE LEG!
Ryder: Damn it!
Ring Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, the interim champion is now Maria Gonzales!
Mercer: The Dollhouse Killers are making their presence felt as Madison tosses Maria’s Singapore Cane back to her and the two of them are dishing out some major punishment!

( Recap from earlier in the evening highlights several big moments including Lioncross making his EAW debut, King Lannister being taken out and Cameron Ella Ava capturing the Interwire Championship. )
( Camera cuts backstage to Pierre McGuire who is standing by at the interview section with a microphone in hand and is standing between Lioncross and the new Interwire Champion, Cameron Ella Ava. Cameron is emotional, holding the title close to her with a big smile on her face. )
Pierre McGuire: Ladies and gentlemen it is I, the one and only Pierre McGuire backstage with two legendary individuals in our sport who have had a TREMENDOUS night tonight capturing career-highlight victories on this evening. Let’s start with you, Cam! You are now the first woman to ever hold a males singles title in EAW history barring the Hall of Fame title! How good does this feel??
( Cam wipes away tears from her eyes and holds up her title proudly )
Cameron Ella Ava: It’s the highlight of my career, Pierre, plain and simple. I, haha, I didn’t want to come on here like a crying little bitch but … but the fact is I EARNED this, I don’t give a (CENSORED) what Chuck says, I EARNED this! This title is MINE! I AM THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION!
Pierre: It’s a whole ‘nother ballgame holding that championship, Cam. What do you have to say to the vast amount of competition coming your way?
Cameron: Competition? What competition? I know my worth, Pierre, I know nobody can hold a candle to me because I am the CHAMP! I’m the best, and as far as I’m concerned I won’t acknowledge my “competition” until they prove they’re worthy of even being in the same ring with me.
Pierre: Lioncross, it was your first match in nearly TWO YEARS and your first match ever in Elite Answers Wrestling and you come away with a victory over none other than the Heart Break Boy! Where does this win stack up to other feats in your career?
Lioncross: It’s certainly up there. I’ll never forget this night, I’ll never forget these fans! You’ll have to excuse me, Pierre, the adrenaline still hasn’t worn off yet. On paper, sure, I beat the Heart Break Boy and that’s big enough by itself. But when you take into account everything I’ve been through, everything my family’s been through these last few years and… and I feel like this win becomes so much more important. It’s the start to a brilliant chapter in my professional life and let’s face it, my personal life. It’s nice to have my life back in harmony again, and I honestly couldn’t have done it without everyone’s support.
Pierre: Well LC this begs the question, what’s next?
Lioncross: Good question Pierre, and that’s for EAW to decide because I’m ready for every bit of competition EAW’s got for me! As far as I’m concerned, I’m here to stay, and whether I’m challenging for the World title, tag titles, heck even Cam’s Interwire title, I’m willing to go wherever the current takes me. At this point it doesn’t really matter, I’m just doing what I love.
Pierre: Thank you both.
( Lioncross and Cameron exit the scene … return to ringside )
(Camera transitions back to PNC Park as the lights go out and the cellphones of the fans take their place, illuminating Park enough to see smoke billowing down the stage and ramp as “Nothing Left to Fear” by Slash plays all throughout the Park)
Mercer: A very eerie vibe here in Pittsburgh as it seems as though it’s now time for a grudge match that’s been a year in the making!
(Vic Vendetta appears on the stage – dressed in dark pants, a sleeveless t-shirt with Satanic imagery on it, a brown leather trenchcoat, a black fedora, and a lantern in his right hand that illuminates the devious look on his face)
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall in which the loser of the bout will be forced to leave the Showdown Brand!!…. First, making his way towards the ring…. From New Orleans, Louisiana!…. Weighing in at 266 Pounds!… HE IS THE “SAVIOR OF MANKIND”…. VIC VEEEENNNNNNNDDDDEEEETTTTAAAAAAA!!!….
Ryder: You heard right: whoever loses this match is GONE from Showdown! No coming back! This is the end for someone here tonight, whether they like it or not, and you can bet Vic Vendetta would love nothing more than to get the better of his cousin, Ares, tonight! For nearly a year, he was Ares’ soldier and did everything he had to do to show his loyalty and Ares threw him out like he was nothing, but he might have also woken up a sleeping beast within him! Vic looks as confident as someone possibly can as he makes his way down here.
(“God of War” by contRoVersy plays all throughout PNC Park as Ares Vendetta, still slightly limping, makes his way out to the stage by himself and a cold, determined look upon his face as he stares down with Vic while making his way towards the ring)
Announcer: And his opponent!…. Making his way towards the ring…. From the Land of the Rising Sun!…. Weighing in at 217 Pounds!…. ARES VEEEENNNNNNNDDDDDEEEETTTTTTAAAAAAA!!!….
Mercer: Don’t let that that still-visibly injured body of his fool you, because the look on the face of Ares Vendetta is ALL you need to know that he’s gonna win this match even if it kills him! He proved his determination in a massive way only a couple weeks ago when he captured a shocking upset over the reigning EAW Champion, Xavier Williams, so if there were any doubt that he’s capable of winning this match, you better think again!
(Ares enters the ring as both men stare down for several seconds until the Referee finally calls for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Ryder: This match is officially underway, and if he were at 100%, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ares were already coming at Vic with everything he’s got, but the remaining injuries he suffered at the hands of his battles with Lannister have made him much more cautious as he and Vic continue stare down… Vic’s grin is getting wider and wider as he starts making his way towards Ares… Ares seems to have no other choice than to oblige and step forward himself as both men circle one another.. Vic visibly toying with Ares, taunting him verbally, but I can’t really hear what he’s saying… Ares swings a powerful kick towards Vic using his good leg! Nobody’s home as Vic dodges it and laughs! Ares looks to silence him with an immediate forearm! VIC CATCHES ARES INSTEAD AND DRIVES HIM VICIOUSLY DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH A URANAGE! Right out of the gate, Vic is easily overpowering his cousin! A damaged Ares tries to get back up, but Vic doesn’t look like he’s done toying with him as he hits Ares with a boot to the head and then presses his foot harshly against the skull of Ares on the canvas! Ares is struggling as Vic keeps him pinned down, still mocking him!
Vic (without a microphone): WHERE’S DADDY, ARES? WHERE IS HE?
Mercer: Absolutely appalling! You can’t treat someone like Ares like this! VIC WITH ANOTHER VICIOUS STOMP ONTO THE SKULL OF ARES! Ares manages to roll out of the way and scramble towards the ropes! That injured foot of Ares is still keeping him at a disadvantage as he tries to climb back up to a vertical base using the ropes! VIC RUSHES IN WITH A POWERFUL KNEE TO THE MID-SECTION! And now a closed-fist shot to the body of Ares! Another! ANOTHER! VIC GRABS ARES BY HIS HEAD AND JUST TOSSES HIM LIKE HE’S NOTHING HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING! WHAT POWER! Ares needs to do something here or he may never be able to turn this match around! Vic comes barreling straight towards him, but Ares manages to grab the ropes and pull himself to the outside before Vic can strike him! Ares is doing all he can to recuperate as that foot is acting up, along with the rest of his damaged body… Vic goes to the apron… HE RUSHES IN WITH A BOOT TO THE BACK OF AN UNSUSPECTING ARES’ SKULL! Ares is still just barely on his feet as he turns around while Vic backs up on the apron… HE COMES CHARGING!
Ryder: CANNONBALL SENTON STRAIGHT INTO ARES!! What a move from a big guy like Vic Vendetta! The end may be coming soon for the former Pure Champion! Vic rises back to his feet, maniacally laughing as he drops to his knees and taunts Ares once more… Ares looks absolutely infuriated by the pain inflicted on him and the fact that his body is anchoring him from pulling out all the stops to take on someone like Vic! Vic grabs a hold of Ares and drags him up! He slams Ares spine-first into the apron! A LOUD SLAP STRIKES THE FACE OF ARES AND ECHOES THROUGHOUT PNC PARK! Ares is absolutely powerless.. VIC GRABS HIM AND SENDS ARES FLYING INTO THE FRONT SIDE OF THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE! He’s not finished yet though!
Mercer: No he isn’t as he grabs a hold of Ares… AND IRISH WHIPS HIM WITH SUCH FEROCITY THAT ARES CRASHES INTO AND COMPLETELY FLIPS OVER THE NEARBY STEEL STEPS!! The Referee’s at a count of 6!
Referee: SEVEN!!…… EIGHT!………
Ryder: Vic grabs Ares, drags him back up, and sends him rolling back into the ring before rolling back in himself to break the count… Vic’s grin still glued to his face as he now hovers right over his opponent…
Vic (without a microphone): You think he wants to see you, huh? YOU THINK HE WANTS TO SEE SUCH A PATHETIC LITTLE BOY, HUH?!
Mercer: AND NOW VIC JUST PUMMELS A DOWNED ARES WITH FOREARMS AND FISTS! HE’S NOT LETTING UP AS HE LAYS INTO ARES! THE REFEREE’S TRYING TO PUT A STOP TO THE ONSLAUGHT!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Ryder: Vic puts a stop to the attack and smiles at the Referee while he slowly rises back up to his feet… Vic now stomping a downed Ares! Just end it!
Vic (without a microphone): PATHETIC! YOU’RE PATHETIC!
Mercer: Vic with a merciless boot to the skull of a dazed-looking Ares before he turns his attention to the nearby corner… He looks back at Ares…
Vic (without a microphone): On wrongs swift vengeance waits, Ares! I’VE WAITED LONG ENOUGH!
Ryder: Vic with ANOTHER boot to Ares before he makes his way towards the corner! He starts ascending it! What’s he thinking?! I don’t think we’ve EVER seen this dude go up there! He’s perched and has Ares locked in his sights! I think it’s clear what he’s looking to do now! METEORA!!!! ARES PUTS A FOOT UP AS VIC COMES DOWN FOR THE METEORA!! NO–VIC MANAGES TO LAND ON HIS FEET AND GRABS THE FOOT OF ARES! ARES PULLS VIC DOWN?! HE’S PULLED HIS FOOT DOWN AND SENT VIC TOWARDS HIM AS HE STRUGGLES FOR SOMETHING! VIC’S FIGHTING IT! GOGOPLATA!!! HE’S GOT A GOGOPLATA LOCKED IN ON VIC IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!! WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?! VIC’S STRUGGLING WITH ALL HIS MIGHT TO GET OUT OF THIS HOLD! THIS MATCH COULD VERY WELL END RIGHT HERE AND NOW!
Mercer: ARES HAS A LOOK OF PURE HATRED ON HIS FACE AS HE TRIES TO DRAIN THE LIFE FROM VIC’S PANICKING EYES!! ARES TIGHTENS THAT GOGOPLATA AS MUCH AS HE POSSIBLY CAN AS VIC CONTINUES TO FIGHT FOR A WAY OUT! VIC NOW… HE’S SLOWLY BUT SURELY OVERPOWERING HIS OPPONENT! THE STRENGTH OF VIC DISPLAYED HERE AS HE SLOWLY LIFTS ARES OFF OF THE CANVAS! VIC’S RAISING HIM UP, LOOKING FOR A POTENTIAL POWERBOMB TO BREAK THROUGH THE HOLD! ARES WITH A HARD SHOT TO THE SKULL OF VIC WHILE STILL KEEPING IN THAT HOLD! ANOTHER HARD SHOT! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ARES JUST LAYING INTO VIC! THE STRENGTH DRAINS FROM HIM AND VIC’S LEGS COLLAPSE OUT FROM UNDER HIM AS HE DROPS ARES BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS, UNABLE TO ESCAPE THE GOGOPLATA!! Ares immediately rolls over so that Vic is on his back and breaks the hold, but grabs both wrists of Vic!
Ryder: Vic’s still gasping for air, but fighting back nonetheless as a callous Ares rises up with both wrists of his opponent clutched in his hands! HE SENDS A FOOT DOWN PAINFULLY INTO THE UNPROTECTED FACE OF VIC! ANOTHER STOMP TO THE FACE! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ARES JUST MALICIOUSLY, BLUNTLY STOMPING ONTO VIC’S FACE AS THE REFEREE COUNTS!!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! BREAK IT UP!
Mercer: Ares finally breaks it up just before the Referee was about to call for the bell! It looks like this match will continue, and somehow, someway, it’s turned around in the favor of Ares Vendetta after that miraculous, heinous sequence! Ares needs to end this NOW if he has any hope of winning! He needs to strike while the iron is hot! If Vic catches even a slight opportunity to take control back using Ares’ injuries, you can guarantee he will! Ares seems to be thinking the same thing as he actually makes his way over to the corner! He starts climbing up! Is he thinking Meteora? I’d switch to something else if I were him, with that bad foot! Nonetheless, however slowly, he’s ascending up there! Vic seems to be making his way back up too! Ares needs to hurry! VIC SPRINGS UP! HE STARTS COMING AT ARES LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN! ARES TAKES HIM HEAD ON AS HE LUNGES OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND STRAIGHT INTO AN ONCOMING VIC VENDETTA WITH A RECKLESS FLYING FOREARM STRAIGHT INTO HIS FACE AS VIC IS TAKEN DOWN!! ADRENALINE SEEMS TO HAVE NUMBED THE PAIN ARES IS IN AS HE MAKES HIS WAY BACK UP TO HIS FEET QUICKER THAN BEFORE WHILE VIC SCRAMBLES TO GET UP TOO!
Ryder: VIC’S REFUSES TO LOSE THIS AS HE FRANTICALLY BARRELS TOWARDS ARES AGAIN! HE’S MET WITH A LOUD KNEE TO THE GUT! He’s still up! ARES FOLLOWS UP WITH A GUNSHOT-LIKE KICK TO THE CHEST OF VIC! ANOTHER LOUD KICK THAT ALL OF PITTSBURGH COULD HEAR! THERE’S A FOREARM TO THE FACE! ANOTHER FOREARM SENDS VIC REELING INTO THE ROPES! ARES CHARGES WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM!! HE SENDS VIC STRAIGHT OVER THE ROPES AND CRASHING TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A BIG CLOTHESLINE! VIC’S NOW THE ONE TRYING TO REGAIN HIMSELF ON THE OUTSIDE WHILE ARES IS ON THE PROWL! HE’S GOT SOMETHING BIG IN STORE AS VIC MAKES IT BACK UP! ARES HITS THE ROPES AND COMES CHARGING… HE LEAPS AND MIRACULOUSLY CLEARS THE TOP ROPE AS HE COMES AT VIC WITH A PLANCHA TO THE OUTSIDE!! NO–HE’S CAUGHT! VIC MANAGES TO CATCH HIM!
Mercer: Vic staggers on his feet with Ares caught in his arms as he tries to shift him onto his shoulders! ARES DRIVES AN ELBOW INTO THE SIDE OF VIC’S SKULL! ANOTHER ELBOW! ARES ESCAPES! He escapes onto the top of the barricade and quickly tries to stand up as Vic turns! PENALTY KICK!! VIC’S NOT DOWN, BUT HE GOES REELING BACK A FEW FEET WITH A LOOK OF PAINFUL SHOCK ON HIS FACE! ARES RUSHES FORWARD ON THAT BARRICADE! A SECOND PENALTY KICK!! NO–VIC CATCHES THE LEG THIS TIME AND PULLS ARES ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!! POWERBOMB LUNGBLOWER!!! A HEINOUS POWERBOMB LUNGBLOWER CONNECTS ON THE OUTSIDE AS ARES’ LUCK MAY HAVE FINALLY RAN OUT! Ares writhes in pain as a still battered Vic struggles to grab a hold of him and pull both men up… He sends Ares rolling back into the ring before rolling in himself to break the Referee’s count… Vic’s hurting, but he’s still got confidence in his eyes as he slowly rises up… The end may be nigh as he pulls Ares up! HE PULLS HIM IN! FINAL ATONEMENT!!!! NO–THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK PILEDRIVER IS SOMEHOW REVERSED AS ARES PICKS VIC UP?! HE SHIFTS HIM ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! HIS FOOT MAY GIVE OUT!
Ryder: FIREMAN’S CARRY NECKBREAKER CONNECTS AS THE BACK OF VIC’S NECK LANDS HARD ON THE KNEE OF ARES!! ARES COMES CHARGING INTO THE ROPES AND BACK! PENALTY KICK LOUDLY OFF THE TORSO OF VIC VENDETTA!! ARES WITH AN IMMEDIATE STANDING MOONSAULT DOUBLE KNEE DROP TO COMPLETE THE VICIOUS TRIFECTA BEFORE HOOKING THE LEG OF VIC!!
Mercer: HE KICKS OUT! VIC SOMEHOW KICKS OUT AT JUST ONE! Ares can’t believe it! He looks frustrated to no end as he looks to finally end this… He grabs the wrist of Vic… Slowly… Hold on… What in the….
(Bishop makes her way out to the stage as Ares slowly takes notice… After a few moments, Rook wheels out a filthy looking, unresponsive man in a wheelchair)
Ryder: What’s going on?
Mercer: Is that… ?….. No way…. Ares looks as dumbfounded as everyone else… He–VIC PICKS HIM UP?!! OMEGA DRIVER!!!! A SICKENING OMEGA DRIVER CONNECTS AS VIC HOOKS THE LEG OF ARES!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……. TWO!!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Nothing Left to Fear” by Slash plays all throughout the arena as a battered and beaten Vic Vendetta rolls to the outside and looks at the man Bishop and Rook brought out)
Announcer: The Winner of this contest by pinfall!!…… VIC VEEENNNNNNNNDDDDDEEEETTTTTAAAAAAA!!!!
Ryder: Well, a HUGE win out of nowhere for Vic, but…. I’m still confused as to what it is we’re seeing… Vic looks just as confused as everyone else as he slowly makes his way up the ramp… Rook steps up as Vic nears…
(“Nothing Left to Fear” fades out as Vic eyes the man in the wheelchair… After a few moments, Vic begins to loudly laugh… Vic continues to laugh as he makes his way backstage, not taking his eyes off the man while Bishop looks towards a damaged and defeated Ares in the ring)
Mercer: Could that really be… Robbie V?
(Ares slowly, painfully pulls himself up in the ring as Bishop and Rook bring the man down to the bottom of the ramp… Ares stares at them through the ropes for several seconds before slowly exiting the ring… Ares grabs a microphone from a nearby crew worker and pushes him down before limping his way over to Rook, Bishop, and the man in the wheelchair)
Ares: What…. Is this?
(Ares leans in to look at the man in the wheelchair)
Bishop: You wanted him so badly. Here he is. Two-time King of Extreme. Former Heavyweight Champion of the World. Two-time–
Ares: SHUT UP!
(A livid Ares gets face to face with Bishop before Rook finally steps in between them)
Ares: I SAID TO BRING ME MY FATHER! IS THIS SOME KIND OF JOKE?
Bishop: I’m afraid Mikado Sekaiichi… Robbie V… That man is no more. All that’s left of him sits there in front of you, boy. I told you that you weren’t ready to see him, but I suppose it was for the better to get it out of the way sooner than later. The man you idolized left a long time ago, I’m afraid. This thing here? This thing is the result of a man with far too much pride this is the result of having it all taken away. Years of torture to his body, years of psychological scars, years of battling with his demons, and falling from grace has left him nothing more than a waste of flesh and bone.
(Ares looks into the empty eyes of Robbie V as Bishop continues)
Bishop: The path you were walking down when we came to you is one that would have left you just like him, boy. He’s lost everything that matters to him, but you were never one of those things. You don’t see even a glimmer of emotion while looking into your father’s eyes as he sees his own flesh and blood before him, do you? He never cared about you, boy, and the sooner you accept that, the sooner you can get on with your life and the sooner I can take my leave. Your father isn’t gone, Ares. He was never here. Not in your World. Your mind made him up to be a hero, and a Legend, but do you see a hero in that chair? Do you see a Legend? Do you see a father that raised you? Stop wasting my time and accept it.
(Ares finally stops looking into the lifeless eyes of Robbie and lowers his head…)
Bishop: ACCEPT. IT.
(Ares quickly raises his head, laughing)
Ryder: This guy’s lost it…
(Ares laughs loud and hard as he squats down and gets in Robbie’s face)
Ares: I can’t believe I wasted so much time! I can’t believe I’ve wasted so much! These names on my body! They don’t mean anything, do they?!
(Ares continues laughing as he speaks)
Ares: The-these names! I’ve been pursuing these people for so-so long! What a waste of time! Hahahahahaha! What a waste! I’ve been hunting these people down, thinking they were what did this to you! Thinking THEY harmed you! THEY DIDN’T HARM YOU! THEY DIDN’T WRONG YOU!
(Ares’ maniacal laughter stops suddenly as a serious, cold, emotionless expression sweeps across his face)
Ares: This whole cancerous company did this to you.
(Ares slowly stands up, looking away from Robbie and ignoring Bishop and Rook as he starts making his way up the ramp, dropping the microphone from his hand as he goes)
(Ares keeps walking up the ramp, still slightly limping and still visibly in pain)
(Ares leaves through to the backstage area as the camera fades to commercial)
( COMMERCIAL BREAK )
( Return to ringside… the camera pans around ringside as the Cage of Death is set up outside the ring, separating the crowd from the ringside area. Outside the ring is covered entirely with weapons, ranging from glass, thumbtacks, baseball bats, trash cans, barbed wire, tables, cacti, light tubes, and dozens of other materials. The referee stands all the way at the corner of the ring, remaining calm as he waits the inevitable storm that will lay to waste inside the cage.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is being scheduled for one fall……..AND IT IS A CAGE OF DEATH MATCH FOR THE EAW HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONSHIP! The competitors must either pin and/or submit their opponent to win the cage match with all the weapons and objects littered inside the cage.
(“Mercy Rule” by Cage Theory blasts throughout the speakers, as Diamond Cage slowly makes his appearance in front of a roaring and buzzing crowd.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, weighing in at 230 pounds……….DDDDIIIIAAAAMMMOOONNNDDDDDD CCCAAAGGGGEEEEEEEEE!!
Ryder: Words cannot simply describe the catastrophic, the diabolical and the hideous paths that both Diamond Cage and Dark Demon have been through all these past couple of weeks. Just when we thought things were picking up in a business sense, initially, it would soon rise up to a personal state of interest as Demon would bring Cage’s own wife into the fray. From that moment on, things didn’t remain the same for either of these two men.
(The music slowly dies down, as Diamond Cage is shown standing right in front of the entrance of the cage. The crowd are undyingly cheering him on, as Cage continues to examine the massive steel structure by placing his palms all around.)
(“Foggy Dew” by Sinead O’Connor blasts through the speakers, as the crowd immediately transitions into a deafening chorus of boos. )
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, the Champion, from Galway, Ireland…….HE IS “THE NOTORIOUS”……….DDDDAAAARRRRKKKKKKK DDDDEEEEMMMMOOOONNNNN!!
Ryder: But as for this man, I simply have no comment whatsoever. Why did he have to make things TOO personal with Diamond Cage? I understand that Demon has had countless of doubters telling him that he isn’t fit to continue being a wrestler and that he should simply retire, but this is possibly showing a bit TOO much. I get that he is also the EAW Hall Of Fame Champion, and that he is willing to do anything in his power to keep that belt attached under his waist, but just like Cage, he is going to sacrifice every ounce of his soul in order to come out as the winner. I can tell you that if Dark Demon does prevail victorious, this win will be echoed for months, maybe even years to come.
(Cage anxiously waits for Demon who’s yet to come out… however Bryce Dean, Demon’s personal agent, makes his appearance down the ramp.)
Ryder: Why on Earth is Bryce Dean descending down that ramp? He has NO part in this match whatsoever. He ha—wait….it looks like he has a piece of paper in his possession alongside a pen! What is he…
(Bryce Dean stands a few inches apart from Diamond Cage, who still doesn’t turn around whatsoever. Bryce, who starts to laugh it off, places the mic closer to his mouth.)
Bryce: Excuse me, Mr. Diamond Cage, but allow for me to fill you in to something very important. Even though that you will be living the END of your life here tonight in this world, I can tell you right now that ALL’s not lost! What I have here right now….
(Bryce places the mic lower, as he unfolds the piece of paper and takes out a pen.)
Bryce: ….is a LIFE insurance form. You may not physically, emotionally and spiritually walk out of this arena as the same person ever again, but your wretched wife and children can receive an abundant amount of bene—
Mercer: OH LOOK! DIAMOND CAGE WITH A STIFF RIGHT HAND ACROSS THE FACE OF BRYCE DEAN! BRYCE IS KNOCKED AWAY, AS CAGE LOWERS HIS ELBOW PAD DOWN…….ROLLING ELBOW TO THE SKULL OF DEAN! DEAN FALLS LIFELESSLY TO THE GROUND, AND….BUT….WHERE IS DARK DEMON?!
Ryder: CAGE IS BREATHING LIKE A BULL AS HE SCANS ALL AROUND FOR DEMON, BUT HE CAN’T SEEM TO FIND HIM! WAIT! DEMON JUMPS FROM THE BARRICADE AND RUNS IN BEHIND ON DIAMOND CAGE……AND HE HAS THE RAILROAD SPIKE IN HIS HAND! THE SAME WEAPON THAT HE USED ON CAGE’S WIFE NOT TOO LONG AGO! CAGE TURNS AROUND…….DEMON WITH THE RAILROAD SPIKE TO THE HEAD!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Mercer: NO! CAGE DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN TIME……..AND HE NAILS A THUNDEROUS THRUST KICK TO THE CHEST OF DEMON! DEMON ISN’T FALLING, AS HE JUST DANGLES ON BOTH TWO FEET! CAGE TAKES A FEW SPACES BACK, AS HE TAKES A LOOK AT THE ROARING AND BUZZING CROWD! HE RUSHES FORWARD………..CAGE WITH A SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR! SPEAR THROUGH THE CAGE DOOR! DEMON IS ROCKETED DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING WITH THE THUMBTACKS, GLASS SHARDS, AND CACTI ALL LAID ALL AROUND! DEMON SHOUTS OUT IN TERRIBLE PAIN!
Ryder: CAGE HOWEVER, ISN’T EVEN SHOUTING OR SCREAMING! HE IS LAUGHING LIKE BLOODY MANIAC! HIS RIGHT ARM IS CUT BADLY, BUT HE DOESN’T MIND AS HE JUST LAUGHS IT OFF! WHAT THE HELL? CAGE LIFTS DEMON UP ON HIS FEET, WITH THE BLOODY THUMBTACKS DROPPING OFF FROM THE BACK OF DEMON! HE PUSHES HIM INSIDE OF THE RING, AS CAGE FOLLOWS AND IMMEDIATELY GOES FOR THE PIN! NEW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION!
Ryder: AND DEMON MANAGES TO KICK OUT OF IT! DEAR GOD, JUST LOOK AT DEMON’S ENTIRE BACK, AS GLASS FRAGMENTS AND THUMBTACKS ARE JUST GLUED ALL UPON HIM! SAME THING CAN BE SAID FOR CAGE, BUT HE ISN’T SHOWING ANY SIGNS OF PAIN AT THE MOMENT!
Mercer: Diamond Cage is on both of his knees, as he just looks through the variety of weapons that he can use for his benefit! Demon is rolling all around the ring in tremendous pain, as he tries to pluck the fragments of glass from his back area……BUT CAGE HAS NONE OF IT AS HE VICIOUSLY KICKS DEMON’S BACK WITH FORCE, WITH THE FRAGMENTS GOING IN DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO DEMON’S SKIN! DEMON IS SCREAMING OUT WITH SO MUCH PAIN, AND THE CROWD ARE ENJOYING THIS LEVEL OF TORTURE AND RUTHLESSNESS THAT CAGE IS SHOWCASING HERE TONIGHT!
Ryder: Cage still doesn’t seem satisfied, as he rolls out of the ring and immediately goes through the endless stash of weapons piled all around him. Demon slowly tries to get up on his feet, and Cage checks under the ring for anything else that he could use! He picks out…..A HUGE STEEL TRASH CAN! BUT LOOK OVER AT DEMON! DEMON RUSHES TOWARDS THE ROPES AND OUT……AND HE LUNGES TOWARDS CAGE……….BUT CAGE THROWS THE TRASH CAN STRAIGHT TO DEMON’S HEAD! DEMON FALLS LIFELESS DOWN TO THE CANVAS, AND HIS ENTIRE BODY SPASMS ONCE MORE AS THE THUMBTACKS AND GLASS FRAGMENTS TAKES A TOLL OF HIS ENTIRE BACK! CAGE IS ENJOYING EVERY SECOND OF THIS!
Mercer: Cage rolls out of the ring YET AGAIN, AS HE TOSSES A TABLE INTO THE RING, CACTI AS WELL, MORE TRASH CANS, LIGHT TUBES, BASEBALL BATS, BARBED WIRE, ANYTHING THAT YOU CAN NAME! DEMON IS SURROUNDED IN A POOL OF DESTRUCTION, AND HE HASN’T EVEN REALIZED IT YET!
Ryder: Cage enters back inside the ring, and lifts Demon up once more—BUT DEMON FLINGS HIS HANDS DOWN AND WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND CAGE’S WAIST…….GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS ONTO CAGE…..AND CAGE LANDS ON A PILE OF BARBED WIRE! CAGE FINALLY SHRIEKS IN PAIN AS THE RAZORS PIERCES INTO HIS SKIN!
Mercer: Dark Demon is still feeling the pain, as he clutches on his lower back while ascending up on his feet. He limps off towards the downed Cage, as he uses his boot to roll him over across the ring. Several moaning sounds can be heard from Demon, as his back is literally covered with blood and fragments that has been deeply penetrated into his back. Cage looks onto the ropes, as he tries to get himself back in this Cage of Death contest….BUT DEMON SKIPS TOWARDS THE ROPES, AND SPRINGS UP………..THE DEMON STOMP ONTO CAGE’S HEAD! THE DOUBLE FOOT STOMP LANDS STRAIGHT INTO THE FACE OF DIAMOND CAGE! WAIT! WAIT A DAMN MINUTE! CAGE IS BLEEDING ALL OVER HIS FACE!
Ryder: DIAMOND CAGE IS SCREAMING AND FLAPPING HIS ARMS OUT LIKE A BIRD AS BLOOD GUSHES ALL OVER HIS FACE! OH MY GOD! THIS IS HORRID, COMPLETELY HORRID! DEMON CONTINUES TO DEMONICALLY LAUGH, AS HE TAKES A VICIOUS STARE AT THE BOOING CROWD!
Mercer: This doesn’t seem to be all……AS DEMON JUMPS UP TOWARDS THE ROPES, LOOKING FOR ANOTHER DEMON STOMP! IT CONNECTS! NO! CAGE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY MIRACULOUSLY! DEMON LANDS SAFELY ON HIS FEET….BUT IS MET WITH A SURPRISE MISSILE DROPKICK FROM CAGE! CAGE QUICKLY GETS BACK UP ON HIS FEET, AS DEMON RICOCHETS OFF THE ROPES…….AND IS MET AGAIN WITH A BACKHAND CHOP STRAIGHT TO THE CHEST OF DEMON! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! CAGE NOW SPRINGS OFF TOWARDS THE OPPOSITE ROPES, AND HE BOUNCES OFF WITH VELOCITY….AND CAGE WITH A DECAPITATING LARIAT! AND THAT IS THAT OF THE DIAMOND SAINT SPECIAL!
Ryder: Cage has been WAITING for this moment to come down for him for such a long time, and he finally gets the chance in a stipulation in which he thrives on! He wants to be the EAW Hall Of Fame Champion, to add himself into the fray at POSSIBLY being included into the EAW Hall Of Fame!
Mercer: Cage groggily walks towards Demon, and he steps between Demon’s legs, AND HE GRABS BOTH OF DEMON’S LEGS AND TWISTS THEM AROUND AND SITS! THE SHARPSHOOTER IS LOCKED ON! A SUBMISSION IS ALSO GOOD ENOUGH FOR CAGE TO COME OUT AS CHAMPION! DEMON SHOUTS OUT IN PAIN AS HE FLAPS HIS HANDS UP AND ABOUT, BUT HE IS NOWHERE NEAR THE ROPES! THE FANS ARE SCREAMING AT HIM TO TAP OUT, AS CAGE SLOWLY BENDS THE LEGS OF DEMON EVEN FURTHER!
Ryder: DEMON IS IN DEEP, DEEP TROUBLE AS HE NOW HAS HIS HAND UP IN THE AIR, AS HE LOOKS UP AT IT KNOWING THAT IT WILL COST HIM THE HALL OF FAME TITLE! HE IS TRYING TO KEEP IT DOWN, BUT HE JUST CAN’T! CAGE IS USING EVERY BIT OF MUSCLE IN HIS ARMS TO KEEP THIS SUBMISSION LOCKED IN! DEMON CAN’T KEEP ON ANYMORE!
Mercer: DEMON IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO GET OUT OF THIS! DEMON USES HIS HAND……AND HE REACHES TOWARDS A BASEBALL BAT! DEMON TRIES TO PUSH HIS BODY FORWARD TOWARDS THE BAT, AND EXTENDS HIS FINGERS OUT WIDE! HE GRABS IT! HE HAS THE BAT IN HIS HAND! CAGE CONTINUES TO BEND DEMON’S LEG DOWN, WITH CAGE’S HEAD LOWERING DOWN AS WELL! DEMON GRABS THE BAT TIGHTLY…….AND HE SWINGS IT STRAIGHT ACROSS CAGE’S SKULL! CAGE FINALLY FALLS OFF FROM DEMON, AND DEMON CRAWLS OUT OF THE RING FOR A LONG BREATHER!
Ryder: Dark Demon has been put through HELL in this match, just look at his ENTIRE back side all covered with glass fragments and thumbtacks! Plus, his legs may have been disabled for the remainder of this entire match!
Mercer: Bryce Dean is shown outside of the cage, encouraging Dark Demon to get back up on his feet, AND DEMON IS SURPRISINGLY RISING BACK UP ON HIS FEET! YOU MAY HATE DARK DEMON OR NOT, BUT YOU HAVE TO ADMIRE THIS SPIRIT COMING FROM HIM! Cage groggily gets back up on his feet, as he looks at Dark Demon progressing from the outside. He takes a long stare at the fans, as they are telling him to “DO IT!” Do what? OH OH! LOOK ON! CAGE RUSHES TOWARDS THE ROPES, AND HE RICOCHETS OFF AS HE BURSTS TOWARDS THROUGH THE ROPES!!! SUICIDE DIVE!
Ryder: NO! DARK DEMON WITH THE RAILROAD SPIKE STRAIGHT INTO THE SKULL OF DIAMOND CAGE IN MID AIR!!!!!! CAGE DROPS FLAT DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE, AS HE CRASHES FACE FIRST INTO THE THUMBTACKS AND GLASS FRAGMENTS LAID SCATTERED ALL AROUND! WHERE DID DEMON GET THE EXTRA RAILROAD SPIKE FROM?! I THOUGHT HE DROPPED IT OUTSIDE OF THE CAGE! HIT THE REPLAY!
(Replay plays over as Cage is shown sprinting towards the ropes, and reveals Dark Demon pulling off another railroad spike from the ground, and levelling it onto Cage.)
Ryder: ….WHAT?! THAT THING WAS ON THE GROUND ALL THIS TIME?!?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! WHAT KIND OF A SICK PERSON WOULD DO SUCH A THING!?!
Mercer: CAGE IS SIMPLY KNOCKED OUT COLD, AS HIS FACE CONTINUES TO POUR OUT MORE AND MORE, BLOOD CONTINUES TO GUSH OUT UNCONTROLLABLY DOWN THE SIDE OF CAGE’S FACE! THIS IS DISGUSTING! VERY, VERY DISGUSTING!
Ryder: DEMON DRAGS CAGE BACK IN THE RING AND CLIMBS BACK INTO THE RING, AS HE QUICKLY PICKS UP THE HEAVY DIAMOND CAGE BACK UP ON HIS FEET……AND HE RAISES HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! OH NO! THE G.T.R! THE GO TO RETIREMENT! THE FIREMAN’S CARRY AND THE KNEE LIFT RETIRES CAGE OUT OF THIS MATCH-UP! DEMON GOES FOR THE PIN!
Ref: ONNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!………TWWOOOOOOOOOOO!! THRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Foggy Dew” by Sinead O’Connor blasts through the speakers as the ENTIRE arena can be heard booing with so much detest and hatred, as Dark Demon collapses down onto the ring alongside the pool of weapons.)
Ring Announcer: And here is your winner……………………….AND STILL YOUR EAW HALL OF FAME CHAMPION………………..DARK DEMON!
Ryder: SOMEONE OPEN UP THE DAMN CAGE! DIAMOND CAGE IS GOING UNCONSCIOUS! LOOK AT THAT AMOUNT OF BLOOD GUSHING OUT OF HIS FACE! MEDICAL TEAM, HURRY!
(The paramedic team immediately rushes down the ramp and dash inside the cage, as they tend to the severe wounds of Diamond Cage.)
Mercer: THIS WAS TRULY DISGUSTING FROM DARK DEMON, WHO KNOWS IF CAGE IS CURRENTLY BLIND RIGHT NOW! FORGET TRYING TO WIN THIS MATCH, DEMON WAS TRYING TO DISTORT CAGE’S ENTIRE FACE, AND THAT CLEAN SHOT WAS LIKE A FREAKING GUNSHOT TO THE HEAD! THAT WAS JUST A GRUESOME DISPLAY FROM HIM!
( Dark Demon and Bryce Dean are smirking as they make their way towards the back, laughing and smiling in the process.)
Mercer: Ladies and gentlemen, we are sorry, but we are not allowed to go view any more further of Diamond Cage’s injuries in the ring. All we can say is that it is truly saddening and sickening at the same time, as several more staff members rush down the ramp from the back with worried faces all across them. Unbelievable..
Dark Demon (without a mic): DO….NOT…..(CENSORED)……..WITH ME! YOU PIECES OF (CENSORED)! DON’T (CENSORED) WITH ME!
(Demon raises his hands up in the air, as several fans start to throw food and bottles all across the general direction of Bryce Dean and Dark Demon, as the camera slowly transitions.)

( Camera cuts backstage …where Pizza Boy is sitting alone with dried blood staining his body, bruises all over him with a visible swollen eye. He sits solemnly on a bench, alone with his thoughts ….. )
( Soon after, Heart Break Boy enters the scene, still in his ring gear, and he sits down on the bench next to Pizza Boy. )
Heart Break Boy & Pizza Boy: … *sigh*

Pizza Boy: You lost tonight?
HBB: Yeah. You too?
Pizza Boy: Yes. Well, sort of. Technically no. I might as well have, though.
( They sit together in silence )
Pizza Boy: Man…. sometimes it’s hard being a boy.
HBB: I guess.
Pizza Boy: I know you can relate to this. Don’t you ever wish you weren’t a boy sometimes?
Pizza Boy: No, not like that, I mean’t dont you ever wish you were treated more like a “man”. You know, Heart Break “Man” … Pizza “Man”. Hell, Pizza “Guy” would be nice. But Pizza “Boy”… ehh..
HBB: I admire your ability to maintain a sense of humor even in defeat.
Pizza Boy: Yeah, well I guess I was just raised that way. When things go wrong you either learn to cry about it or laugh at it.
HBB: … You know, I like your attitude kid. What’d you say your name was?
Pizza Boy: … Pizza Boy.
HBB: Sorry, it’s the concussions. Well Pizza Boy, you seem like a pretty cool guy, how would you and I like to hang out sometime? I think we do relate on a lot of levels… and I’ve been looking for somebody to team with me to join this tag team tournament I’ve been hearing about.
Pizza Boy: Really? You’d want to team with me?? I mean — Yeah, I’d be glad to!
HBB: Sounds good, kid. By the way, I’m Mike.
( HBB sticks out his hand )
Pizza Boy: Pizza Boy.
( Pizza Boy shakes his hand and HBB gets up and walks away as the scene comes to an end )
( FINAL COMMERCIAL BREAK )
(The camera fades to black before cutting back to Reckless Wiring as Diamond Cage and Heart Break Boy battle for the EAW Championship before “House of the Rising Sun” – Five Finger Death Punch hits and Xavier Williams makes his way through the curtain with the Cash in the Vault briefcase in hand.)
Mercer & Kawajai: WHAT?!
(The camera cuts to Xavier Williams deadlifting Diamond Cage into the air and dropping him on the top of his head with Sin’s End and covering as the sound of the crowd is the only thing that can be heard as they count “One… Two… Three.”)
Mercer: WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION!!
(The camera slowly fades to black as Xavier Williams is seen raising the EAW Championship into the air, before Xavier Williams’ voice can be heard.)
Xavier: It boils your blood, doesn’t it; the fact that for Two Hundred and Fourteen days of this year, that I have stood at the very top of this company as the EAW Champion. I see the look in all of their eyes, they believe if given the opportunity that they’re the man that would rip this championship off of my shoulder, but I ask just one simple question: why haven’t you?
(The camera suddenly flashes between shots of Xavier Williams making his entrances at Voltage, Grand Rampage, Showdown, Pain for Pride, Midsummer Massacre and Territorial Invasion: Civil War.)
Xavier: I don’t deserve to hold the EAW Championship; that’s the opinion of the many… but no matter how hard the world tries, no man has been able to take it from me.
(The camera flashes to Xavier Williams pinning Chuck Scene at Grand Rampage.)
Xavier: Chuck Scene… fallen.
(The camera cuts to Xavier Williams pinning Zack Crash at Pain for Pride.)
Xavier: The Chairman of this company… fallen.
(The camera cuts to Xavier Williams pinning Hades at Midsummer Massacre.)
Xavier: Hades The Hellraiser… fallen.
(The camera cuts to Xavier Williams pinning Jamie O’Hara at Territorial Invasion.)
Xavier: Mr. Cash in the Vault… fallen.
(The camera cuts to Xavier Williams standing in the middle of an emptied PNC Park with the EAW Championship over his shoulder.)
Xavier: You’ve been handed a second chance at greatness, what are going to do when it slips through your fingers and I crush the remnants under the sole of my boot again?
(The screen slowly fades to black before we’re met by the final moments of the EAW Championship match at Territorial Invasion between Xavier Williams and Jamie O’Hara.)
Ryder: XAVIER REBOUNDS STRAIGHT BACK INTO THE SCARLETT DAWN!!!!!!! THAT SUPERKICK ALMOST TOOK THE HEAD OFF OF THE SHOULDERS OF THE CHAMPION!!!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS MAY BE UNCONSCIOUS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!!! XAVIER MAKING HIS WAY TO THE TOP ROPE, LOOKING TO PLACE THE FINAL NAIL INTO THE COFFIN OF THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN OF XAVIER WILLIAMS!!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS HASN’T MOVED!!!! SERENADE OF ESCTASY!!!!!! FROGSLPASH TO THE CHAMPION!!!!!! JAMIE HOOKS THE LEG!!!!!
(The camera cuts to a panning shot over the crowd as they count “One, Two, Thr—“, before cutting back to Albert Hitchman pulling the referee out of the ring.)
Mercer: ALBERT HITCHMAN?!
(The camera cuts to Xavier Williams hitting Jamie O’Hara from behind with a low blow and then King’s Fall and getting the ring. The camera cuts to Xavier Williams and Albert Hitchman standing over Jamie O’Hara as the voice of Hitchman echoes in the background.)
Hitchman: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH AND STILL THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING CHAMPION OF THE WOOOORRRLLDDD!!!! THE BEST WRESTLER IN THE WORLD!!!!! XAAAVVVIEEEEEERR WILLLLLLIIAAMMSSSS!!!!!!
(The camera shows Jamie O’Hara slowly trying to sit up after the match as Xavier Williams and Albert Hitchman take their leave.)
O’Hara: It was meant to be my moment. Fifteen months I scratched and clawed my way to that match; for fifteen months of fought every single thing, whether man or monster for that one opportunity to grasp onto greatness… only to have it all ripped away in a single moment.
(The camera cuts to Xavier Williams championship celebration where Jamie O’Hara interrupted, sending Xavier Williams off the stage with a Back Body Drop and delivering an elbow drop off the scaffold from 40ft in the air.)
O’Hara: Nothing has felt sweeting than that moment, but it was nothing more than a mere taste to what I’m willing to do to get my hands on that championship. I stick by my words; Xavier Williams doesn’t deserve the right to call himself the EAW Champion. He doesn’t deserve to stand at the top of the mountain with the crown jewel of this company over his shoulder and tonight… tonight I give Showdown – I give the world a champion deserving of the right.
(The camera cuts to Albert Hitchman and James Shields where the match of announced.)
Shields: You see, Albert, on November 7th, Showdown will present its annual Supershow: Redemption, and at Redemption whether either you or Xavier likes it, Jamie O’Hara will get a rematch for the championship that you screwed him out of. But, I’m going to make sure that we don’t face the same tainted finished that we saw at Territorial Invasion. I’m going make sure that the man who leaves with the championship, deserves to be the EAW Champion, because at Redemption, if Xavier Williams gets counted out, gets himself disqualified OR you manage to get your grimy little hands involved… Xavier Williams isn’t only going to be stripped of the championship and it be given to Jamie O’Hara – Xavier Williams will be fired!
(The camera cuts back to Jamie O’Hara training throughout the week leading into Showdown: Redemption.)
O’Hara; You have nowhere to run and you have nowhere to hide. You want everyone to truly believe that you’re the “Best in the World” – prove it. Give them the man that we once thought that you were, rather than the bitch that you’ve become. The name couldn’t be any more fitting… Redemption. I’m taking what’s mine. I’m taking the EAW Championship.
(The camera fades to black before cutting back to the ring where the ring announcer stands by ready.)
(“The Darkness Of My Mind” – Trivium hits as Jamie O’Hara makes his way through the curtain and down to the ring.)
Ryder: Ladies and Gentlemen this match was scheduled to be a Triple Threat where King Lannister would be cashing in his crown to enter this match, but due to the man being attacked earlier in the evening, this match has returned back to the match we originally had a few weeks ago.
Mercer: If you’re Jamie O’Hara a whole lot of pressure has been taken off your shoulders; you no longer have to worry about the man I considered the X-Factor in this match. The Champion doesn’t have the Hitchman card to pull tonight and Lannister is no longer a worry; if things go like we thought they were at Territorial Invasion, it’s extremely likely that we’re going to see a new Champion crowned.
Ryder: If their match at Territorial Invasion is anything to go by, this match is going to be nothing short of amazing. I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks and can feel the electricity in the air. It feels like we’re going to see something huge happen, whether it be Xavier Williams retaining or Jamie O’Hara being crowned the new EAW Champion. I can’t wait for this to get started.
(“Never Giving Up” – Of Mice & Men hits as Xavier Williams walks through the curtain with Albert Hitchman who is holding the EAW Championship. Xavier stands on the stage before turning back to Hitchman, taking the EAW Championship before Albert Hitchman makes his leave.)
Mercer: I’m glad to see that. Xavier Williams showing that this match is going to be the Champion against Challenger alone, without any controversy. I applaud James Shield on the stipulation that he gave this match; it’s no secret that I’m not the biggest fan of the champion, but the kid is a freak, quite possibly the best thing to come out of the new generation in a while. But with that being said, the challenger isn’t too far behind, if not on the same level.
Ryder: We don’t see eye to eye too often, Jake, but I completely agree. We’ve seen Xavier Williams conquer these challenges in the past. The man has walked through the fires of war against Hades and Zack Crash at Midsummer Massacre and Pain for Pride Eight respectively and successfully walk back out with the EAW Championship over his shoulder. This man has everything to lose tonight, while Jamie O’Hara has nothing to lose; an interesting situation.
Mercer: That it is, indeed.
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen this next match IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING… AND IT IS FOR THE EAW CHAAAAAAMMMPPPIOOOONNSHIP!!!! Introducing first from Sydney, Australia, weighing in tonight at 215 POOOUUUNNDSSS!!!! HE IS “TOMORROW’S LEGEND!!!!”…. JAAAAAAAAMMMIIEEEEE OOOOOOOOO’HAAAAARRRRAAAAA!!!!!!

Ring Announcer: And introducing the Champion from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in tonight at 226 POOOOOUUNNNDSSSS!!!!! HE IS THE SELF PROFESSED “BEST IN THE WORLD”… HE IS THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING CHAMPION OF THE WOOOOOORRRLDDDDD!!!!! XAAAAAVVVVVIIIEEEERR RR WIIIIIIIILLLLLIIIAAAAAAAAMMMMSSS!!!!!!
(Xavier Williams raises the EAW Championship in the air before giving it a kiss and handing it to the referee. The referee walks over and shows the championship to Jamie O’Hara before making his way to the middle of the ring, raising the championship into the air, handing it to the time keeper and calling for the bell until….
( “The Red” – Chevelle hits…)
(Matt Miles slowly makes his way through the curtain with the 24/7 contract in his hand with a big smile across his face. Miles begins to make his way down to the ring as both Xavier Williams and Jamie O’Hara look on.)
Mercer: We haven’t seen Matt Miles since Ares Vendetta took him out months ago! I heard a few things surfacing about this man’s return, but I never thought it would be tonight!
Ryder: I think that this things about to get a whole lot more interesting.
(Miles whispers something into the ear of the announcer before handing the contract to the referee.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen… MATT MILES IS CASHING IN HIS 24/7 CONTRACT NOW MAKING THIS MATCH A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH!!!!!!!
(Ding, Ding, Ding!)
Ryder: The bell rings and this match is now underway; the EAW Championship on the line in the main event of this blockbuster Supershow, Redemption. Xavier Williams, Jamie O’Hara and the man you can say is replacing King Lannister here tonight, the returning Matt Miles facing off with this illustrious World Championship on the line. Which man is going to leave with it over their shoulder; which man is going to make the first move? But look at Miles, leaving the ring and telling both Xavier and Jamie that the stage is theirs the settle everything out. The hint of a smile crossing the face of Jamie as Xavier slowly circles the ring. Both Jamie and Xavier locking up and it’s Xavier who gains the advantage, able to transition his way behind O’Hara before sweeping his legs from under him sending his down stomach first to the canvas. O’Hara quickly rolling onto his stomach, but Xavier catches him, dropping down and locks in the side headlock. You can see the way that Xavier has the arm trapped of Jamie, making it harder for the man to fight his way back to a vertical base. Jamie firing at the back of Xavier with a kick, knowing he needs to get out of this position quickly. Jamie with another, this time it connects to the back of the head and Xavier releases the hold. Xavier shaking his head, trying to get rid of the cobwebs as Jamie shoots to his feet. Jamie fires away at the chest of Xavier with a stiff shoot kick which knocks the champion back into the corner. Jamie fires with another kick to the chest of Xavier before following it up with a hard European Uppercut! Xavier immediately placed on the back foot as Jamie drags the champion out of the corner and takes him down with a neckbreaker.
Mercer: Jamie quickly gaining control over the champion as Miles continues to stand back and watch as this unfolds. Xavier quickly rolling under the bottom rope trying to gain a little bit of room between the two, but Jamie doesn’t look like he’s willing the give Xavier that chance. Jamie making his way onto the apron as Xavier tries the regain his composure AND AS XAVIER TURNS AROUND JAMIE O’HARA ALMOST TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH AN ALMOST PUNT LIKE KICK! XAVIER ALMOST TURNED INSIDE OUT AS JAMIE UNLEASHES WEEKS OF PENT UP ANGER AFTER WHAT HAPPENED AT TERRITORIAL INVASION! Jamie’s eyes quickly shooting towards Miles who ensures that the champion is all Jamie’s; Xavier trying to sit up as Jamie lines the man up. What could be going through the mind of one of the challengers to the EAW Champion. Xavier sitting up AS JAMIE O’HARA CHARGES AND LEAPS OFF OF THE APRON AND DRIVES XAVIER BACK DOWN WITH A DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP DIRECTLY TO THE CHEST!! THAT MAY HAVE BROKEN SOME OF THE RIBS OF THE EAW CHAMPION— BUT AS SOON AS JAMIE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET MATT MILES ALMOSTcTAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A WICKED LARIAT!! Miles letting Jamie take out the champion before interjecting himself back into his match. Jamie’s momentum quickly stopped to a halt as Miles drags him back to his feet and rolls him under the rope and into the ring.
Ryder: Smart move from the returning Miles as he quickly follows O’Hara and shoots the half!
Ref: ONEEEEEEE!…. KICKOUT!!
Ryder: But certainly not enough has been done to O’Hara and he gets the shoulder up after one. Miles looking back at Xavier Williams who’s still down on the outside before turning his attention back to O’Hara and dragging the man back to his feet. Miles whipping Jamie into the corner and follows it up with a running knee into the sternum! Miles drags Jamie out of the corner and pulls him in, taking him down with a snap suplex! The plan of Matt Miles seems to be going to perfection. Jamie clutching at his stomach as Miles hits the ropes before dropping a knee across the bridge of the nose of O’Hara. Xavier’s slowly getting back to a knee, but still seems to be in quite a bit of pain, grabbing at those ribs. Miles hooking the leg of O’Hara, but this time O’Hara kicks out before one. Frustration crossing the face of Miles as he drags O’Hara back up to his feet again, hitting him with a European Uppercut, but O’Hara fires back with a sick right hand! Miles a little stunned as O’Hara hits him with another, but Miles cutting him back down with a kick just about the left kneecap! O’Hara dropping down to a knee and Miles lifts him up into a fireman’s carry position, but Jamie’s trying to fight out of it with elbows to the side of the head of Miles! Jamie able to fight his way behind Miles and locks the waist! German Suplex! Miles dropped on the back of his head as Jamie holds the bridge!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEE!….. KICKOUT!!
Mercer: And this time it’s Miles who gets the shoulder up after one! Miles grabbing at the back of his neck as Jamie rolls under the bottom rope onto the apron and begins to look to make his way to the top rope. Miles shaking his head, still a little stunned after that German Suplex as Jamie waits perched… Miles is up! And Jamie takes him back down with a Missile Dropkick! O’Hara bursting back to his feet, looking to waste no time, springboarding off the middle rope! Lionsault! Lionsault to Matt Miles! Jamie O’Hara hooking the leg!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEE!…… TWOOOOOOO!…… KICKOUT!!
Mercer: Miles getting the shoulder up once more as Jamie looks at the referee, telling him that he thought that it shoulder have been three. Miles beginning to sit up and O’Hara drags him back to his feet. O’Hara sending Miles back into the corner AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A DROPKICK CONNECTING FLUSH ON THE JAW OF MILES!! Miles stumbling back out of the corner and falls back down to the canvas; O’Hara looking to make his way up to the top again, it looks like he’s looking for a Moonsault— BUT AS SOON AS HE GETS TO THE TOP ROPE, XAVIER WILLIAMS BURSTS UP AND SENDS HIM CRASHING BACK DOWN WITH AN AVALANCHE GERMAN SUPLEX!! Miles getting himself out of dodge, rolling under the bottom rope to the outside as Xavier Williams pushes himself back to his feet. The momentum of that suplex sending Jamie back into the corner; Jamie using the turnbuckles to drag himself back up to his feet, but Xavier has him directly in his sights. Jamie’s up AND THE EAW CHAMPION HITS HIM WITH A VICIOUS RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!! JAMIE USING THE TOP ROPE TO BARELY KEEP A VERTICAL BASE AS XAVIER BEGINS TO FIRE AWAY WITH THESE REPEATED EUROPEAN UPPERCUTS!!
Ryder: XAVIER WILLIAMS MAY HAVE JUST SNAPPED, GRABBING JAMIE WITH A FRONT FACELOCK AND DRAGS HIM OUT OF THE CORNER AND BEGINS TO HIT HIM IN THE MIDSECTION WITH REPEATED KNEES!! JAMIE O’HARA MAY BE OUT ON HIS FEET AS XAVIER PULLS HIM IN AND LIFTS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!! XAVIER CHARGING ACROSS THE RING AND SENDS O’HARA CRASHING BACK INTO THE CORNER WITH THE TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB!! JAMIE STUMBLING OUT OF THE CORNER AND XAVIER PULLS HIM IN AND SENDS HIM OVER WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX, LOOKING TO FLOAT OVER, WHICH HE DOES!! WE’VE SEEN XAVIER DO THIS IN THE PAST!! XAVIER DEADLIFTING JAMIE O’HARA HIGH INTO THE AIR!! DEADLIFT BRAINBUSTER!! BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS ISN’T LOOKING FOR THE PIN, INSTEAD SHOOTING BACK TO HIS FEET, HITTING THE ROPES AND BURSTING BACK ACROSS THE RING— SUICIDE DIVE!! XAVIER WILLIAMS SENDING MATT MILES CRASHING BACK INTO THE BARRICADE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!! THE EAW CHAMPION IS ON FIRE!! I don’t think that we’ve ever seen the EAW Champion this intense! Xavier Williams beginning to search under the ring; he pulls out two chairs and throws them both into the ring, before reaching back under and pulls out a Kendo Stick! Matt Miles pushing himself back to his feet as Xavier Williams swings the Kendo Stick and hits him in the ribs! You can hear the sound of that stick crack as it hits skin! Xavier swings again, and again! Miles dropping down to his hands and knees, trying to crawl away but Xavier Williams cracks it across the back of Miles!
Mercer: The EAW Champion taking full control of this match; I don’t think that I’ve seen Jamie O’Hara move after that onslaught just moments ago, and now Matt Miles seems to be on the chopping board! Xavier stalking Miles, allowing him to get back to his feet; you can see the welts starting to form across the body of Miles. Miles is back up and XAVIER CRACKS THAT KENDO STICK INTO THE SKULL OF MILES!! NO, MILES DUCKING UNDERNEATH AND DRIVES HIS SHOULDER INTO THE RIBS OF XAVIER WILLIAMS, SENDING HIM SPINE FIRST INTO THE STEEL POST!! And now it’s Miles who picks up the Kendo stick with revenge on his mind. Miles driving the point of the stick into the spine of Xavier!! Xavier pushing his way back onto his hands and knees, BUT MILES WITH A SICKENING SHOT TO THE SPINE OF THE EAW CHAMPION! AGAIN AND AGAIN; XAVIER WILLIAMS SCREAMING IN PAIN AS THE BROKEN SPLINTERS OF THE KENDO STICK SLICE AWAY AT THE SKIN OF THE EAW CHAMPION!! BLOOD BEGINNING TO TRICKLE FROM THE BACK OF XAVIER WILLIAMS AS MILES THROWS AWAY THE KENDO STICK AND BEGINS TO TEAR APART THE ANNOUNCERS TABLE OF OUR COLLEAGUES BESIDE US!! MILES LOOKING TO DRAG XAVIER BACK UP— BUT XAVIER GRABBING THE TIGHTS OF MILES AND SENDS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE EDGE OF THE RING APRON!! Xavier Williams pushing his way back to his feet and rolls back into the ring; Jamie O’Hara beginning to stir, one hand on one of the steel chairs in the ring. Xavier getting back to his feet and makes his way over to the downed O’Hara, beginning to drag him to his feet…

Mercer: These men are all throwing everything at each other, all of them refusing to budge; refusing to stay down! Miles slowly pushing his way onto his hands and knees as a bloody and wounded Xavier Williams drags himself into the corner. Xavier using the corner to help himself get back to his feet, but Miles is up first! Miles bursting across the ring as Xavier reaches a vertical base and hits him with a clothesline, crushing him back into the corner.

William fires back with a wild right of his own! This is what this match has come down to; which man is going to take control? Miles swings for another, but Xavier ducks underneath!

O’Hara pops up and connects with a forearm to the jaw, but Miles immediately fires back with a knee to the midsection! Miles looking back at the EAW Champion who seems completely out of it, it’s surprising that he’s still conscious after the amount of blood he must have lost tonight. Miles with another knee to O’Hara dropping O’Hara back down to his hands and knees!! Miles with a kick to the side of the head of O’Hara which sends O’Hara rolling under the bottom rope onto the apron. I think that Miles is trying to make sure that O’Hara is going to stay down for good, because you have to think that if he can the EAW Champion is easy pickings.

Ryder: HE DID IT!! JAMIE O’HARA DID IT!!! JAMIE O’HARA IS THE NEW EAW CHAMPION!!!!!
(The referee grabs the EAW Championship and hands it the Jamie O’Hara who hugs it before getting back to his feet and making his way over the corner, raising the title high into the air as confetti begins to fall.)
Mercer: Ladies and Gentlemen, I do not like the former Champion, but I had to admit that Xavier Williams went out like a fighting champion. Xavier Williams shed everything he could; he gave everything he had tonight, but tonight wasn’t his night. Tonight is the night of that man. The NEW EAW Champion, Jamie O’Hara! Congratulations kid, you definitely earned it.
(Jamie jumps back down to the canvas and turns around… met by Xavier Williams who barely stands in the middle of the ring. Xavier slightly nods his head before taking his leave, leaving Jamie O’Hara to celebrate his victory.)
Ryder: I never in a million years would have thought that we would see that. I doubt that anything may have changed personally between the two of these men, but it certainly shows that Jamie O’Hara earned Xavier’s respect tonight.
Mercer: Class act from Xavier. But, ladies and gentlemen that’s all the time we have for you tonight. This is been an incredible supershow tonight! Jamie O’Hara got exactly what he came for tonight! The EAW Championship – his redemption! This is Jake Mercer signing off down Showdown! Good night everybody!
(Jamie O’Hara stands in the middle of the ring with the EAW Championship over his shoulder, watching Xavier Williams take his leave. Jamie takes a look out to the crowd as a big smile crosses his face before the camera fades to black.)
