Fitzpatrick: Introducing first, From Sea Isle, New Jersey! Weighing in at 238 Pounds!! “The Rex Master” REEXXXX MCCCALLISSTTTERRRRR…!!!
Pierre: This has been an interesting feud as of late but nobody knows why Devan Dubian has set his sights on Rex but Rex certainly isn’t one to back down!
Deadprez: Which is why he is an idiot, Dubian has been in a different state of mind recently and if you get in his way he’ll more than likely run you down, I see Dubian getting the victory no sweat!
(“The Sky Is A Neighbourhood” by Foo Fighters hits the speakers as Devan Dubian makes his way to the ring, ignoring Rex and climbs up the corner of the ring raising his arms and showing off to the crowd who gives him a mixed reaction)

Pierre: Rex quickly grabbing Dubian by the waist blocking the Bleeding Edge attempt, AND HE PLANTS DUBIAN ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!! Dubian landing hard after that but he is getting to his feet as Rex quickly hooks him, AND HE SENDS DUBIAN OVER HEAD WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!! Dubian getting suplexed out of his boots here as Rex is gaining momentum, Dubian making his way to a corner to create distance, Rex runs AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING SHOULDER THRUST!! Dubian side-steps AND RUNS REX CRASHING SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!

Rex rolling around the canvas as Dubian is now firmly in control of this matchup, Rex on all floors as Dubian begins putting boots to him kicking him on the top of his shoulder blade as Rex falls right back down onto the canvas! Dubian stepping outside of the ring and pulls Rex who is still in the ring by his arm dragging him underneath the third turnbuckle and he SWINGS REX’S ARM INTO THE POST!!
Deadprez: Dubian is getting more bloodthirsty here as he grabs that arm again, AND HE SWINGS IT ONCE MORE! Dubian quickly getting inside the ring breaking the referee’s count as Rex is in dire strengths, but he’s determined to get up to his feet as Dubian is sizing him up, and he quickly hooks him by the head before delivering a BRUTAL EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!

He knocks Dubian off the top rope, Rex is a one armed man in an ass kicking contest and I do not like his chances against someone as calculating as Dubian! Dubian is stirring to his feet as Rex looks around the Dome of Doom, before setting himself up FLYING HIGH CROSSBODY CRASHING INTO DEVAN DUBIAN!!
Pierre: NO!! DUBIAN COUNTERS IT INTO A SNAP SCOOP SLAM!!! AND HE HOOKS THE LEG!!!
Pierre: Rex manages to get the leg out as Dubian quickly mounts Rex and begins delivering swift rights hands over the top of his head, Dubian stopping this onslaught before grabbing Rex by his hair and up to his feet, SENDING HIM FLYING ONTO THE APRON BEFORE CATCHING HIM!!! HE’S GOING FOR THE ROPE HUNG DDT!! Rex fighting… and he makes his way inside the ring, AND HE BACK BODY DROPS DUBIAN OUTSIDE ONTO THE FLOOR!! Dubian crashing hard to the outside as Rex has him in his sights, as he makes his way to the apron, Dubian leaning on the barricade, Rex slapping that injured shoulder as he SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES FOR A SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY INTO DEVAN DUBIAN ONTO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR!!! Both men crashing and that high risk paid off for Rex here! Rex pulling himself up with use from the barricade as he grabs Dubian and smashes his head off the ring apron before sending him back inside the ring, Rex follows stopping the referee’s count and enters the ring as Dubian fires a big right hand to the incoming Rex, and Rex comes back with a big right hand of his own, Dubian comes back with another right hand, AND THEN FIRES A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT KNOCKING REX INTO THE ROPES!!

This is looking like the end for Rex, Dubian drops down and begins banging his fist into the canvas, he wants to put the final nail in his coffin, he’s challenging Rex to rise up to his feet and Rex is trying to get up, he’s pulling himself up with what he has left, as he’s up and Dubian is up as well, BLEEDING EDGE!!!!
Pierre: REX SOMEHOW, COUNTERS IT INTO A BACKSLIDE!!! Dubian quickly rolls out before the ref can count, but as he tries getting up to his feet, REX GOES FOR ANOTHER YAKUZA KICK!!!

Pierre: Rex has a bad shoulder so his offense seems limited but he rises to his feet, he’s awaiting Dubian to get up to his feet, Dubian is feeling the effects from that backstabber but he’s up, REX RUNS WITH MOMENTUM FROM THE ROPES, HE HAS DUBIAN HOOKED BY THE NECK!! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE REX EFFECT!!! JUMPING EVENFLOW DDT!!! DUBIAN COUNTERS IT INTO THE OLYMPIC SLAM!!! HE PLANTS REX RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS!!! Dubian manages to fight himself out of a disaster situation that could have resulted in his defeat, Dubian making his way over to Rex who is, REX TRIPS UP DUBIAN AS HE GOES DOWN..

(“It’s My Life” By Bon Jovi plays as Rex has his hand raised in the air as he begins to celebrate)
Fitzpatrick: HEREEEE IS YOUR WINNERRR….. REXXX MCALLISTERRRR….!!
Deadprez: BULLSHIT!! DUBIAN GOT HIS FOOT ON THE ROPE!!! INSTANT REPLAY?
Pierre: Bad call by the referee but it was an honest mistake and one that resulted in a victory for Rex McAllister in a fantastic opening contest tonig-
Deadprez: Pierre shut the fuck up. We can not have referees ruining matches like this, I’m pissed off, fire this sumbitch.
(“It’s My Life” begins to fade out as Dubian begins rising up to his feet and locks eyes with Rex)
Deadprez: I hope Dubian kicks his ass.
Pierre: He’s doing the opposite! DUBIAN IS OFFERING A HANDSHAKE!!!! Rex looks hesitant but he shakes his hand! Dubian raising the hand of Rex tonight,
Deadprez: Now Dubian is losing brain cells? I’ve had it with this show and it’s just started.

Deadprez: It’s so beautiful when guys finally do the right thing, justice has been served Pierre!
(Dubian continues walking up the ramp not looking back as Rex and the referee are laying in the ring as the camera focuses elsewhere)
(EAW 2018 Hall of Fame Ad Plays)
(The camera cuts back to the ring as “My Name is Human” by Highly Suspect plays all throughout the arena)
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome…. THE REIGNING EAW CHAMPION, THE REIGNING OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION, AND THE REIGNING EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…. CAMERON ELLA VA AND THE HEART BREAK GAL…. DI COOOOONNNNSSSSEEEENNNTTTEEESSS!!!
(Heart Break Gal and Cameron Ella Ava make their way out to the stage and towards the ring, both dressed in street clothes and carrying the EAW Championship, Openweight Championship, and Unified Tag Team Championships)
Pierre: Many believed we’d never see a sight like this, but here we are! Two of the most dominant women to have ever stepped inside an EAW ring and they have truly taken 2018 by storm, being the first team to ever be double Champions together in nearly 10 years!
Deadprez: Yeah, yeah, yeah, we get it, Pierre, they’re amazing and everything they touch turns to gold. All that I’m wondering is why the Hell they’re out here right now…
Pierre: Oh, well, I’m not particularly sure, but we have heard all throughout the week that Sydney St. Clair – Cameron’s next opponent for the Openweight Championship – would be coming here tonight.
(“My Name is Human” fades out as Heart Break Gal and Cameron enter the ring with microphones in hand. The crowd cheers as Cameron looks around with a smile on her face)
Cameron: …. L–
(“Came Out Swinging” by The Wonder Years plays all throughout the arena as Sydney St. Clair makes her way out to the stage in street clothes while Cameron and HBG look on)
Pierre: I’m not so sure how wise it is to just interrupt Di Consentes like that, but it looks like Sydney isn’t too concerned about it based on how confident she looks.
Deadprez: Is that confidence or maybe stupidity? She’s aware there’s two of them and only one of her, right? I hope she didn’t come here tonight looking to pick a fight, for her sake…
(“Came Out Swinging” fades out as Sydney enters the ring after being handed a microphone)
HBG: … I do not know this person.
Cameron: Yeah, we were kind of in the middle of something.
(Sydney grins and nods her head)
Sydney: You sure were! But you know, I figured I’d go on right ahead and make things… Well, move a little faster. I think that would be best for all of us. For instance, you decided to just come on out here instead of me having to call you out.
(Cameron looks at HBG before looking back at Sydney)
Cameron: Is that so? Yeah, I’m aware you’re the next person to challenge me. What more do we have to say to each other?
Sydney: Oh I think there’s plenty that could be said! For instance, I look at the two of you…
(Sydney takes a moment to look at Di Consentes, her eyes focused on their gold)
HBG: Is she checking us out? I’m married, sweetheart, sorry.
Sydney: Yeah, and I see you two have done pretty well for yourselves. You’ve reached barriers a lot of people thought women never would in this company, or even professional wrestling in general. I’m proud to have competed where you two compete. I’m even more proud that I’m the one who’s gonna be challenging you for the Openweight Championship. BUT…
(Sydney starts pacing around, looking conflicted)
Sydney: If I’m being honest, I don’t know if I can respect somebody like you two who threw everything the both of you worked towards along with every other woman in this company’s history. Empire is everything you both put your blood, sweat, and tears into and you… You just abandon it? Just like that? Because you feel inadequate? Because you think it’s below you now? I don’t like that. It rubs me the wrong way, and in a way, I’m putting a whole lot more into this Championship match than just winning a Title for myself. I’m winning it for Empire, and I’m gonna make you realize that there’s still plenty you have yet to do there when you see someone like me was able to take that Openweight Championship from around your waist.
(HBG laughs as Cameron nods)
Cameron: That’s a bold thing to say. Are you sure you can back it up?
Sydney: I know I can.
HBG: You’re sure about that? Because based on the fact that you just showed up here on your own to say something so disrespectful kind of shows to me that you’re not the sharpest tool in the shed…
Sydney: On the contrary, Champ. I didn’t come here alone. Someone who feels the same way I do decided to tag along, just in case things got a bit hostile. So without further adieu, a teacher and very good friend of mine…
(Sydney points towards the stage as “Outta My Mind” by BoB plays all throughout the arena while Tarah Nova makes her way out and towards the ring)
Pierre: It looks like Sydney brought some back up!
Deadprez: Maybe she’s not quite as dumb as I expected, but I hope she came into this preparing for one Hell of a fight if she intends to go at it with a group like Di Consentes!
(“Outta My Mind” fades out as Tarah enters the ring, standing beside Sydney as they stare down with HBG and Cameron)
Pierre: You could cut the tension with a knife…
(Cameron and HBG burst out laughing as Sydney and Tarah look on)
Sydney: Something funny?
(Cameron tries to stop her laughter)
Cameron: Yeah… Yeah, something funny… Sydney, we didn’t come out here to have this little meeting with you. We came out here tonight to introduce everyone to the newest member of Di Consentes… Tarah Nova.
(Sydney looks on in surprise as Tarah laughs and hugs both HBG and Cameron, joining them as all three of them stare down with Sydney. Tarah is handed a mic)
Tarah: Sorry, Syd. I thought I taught you better than to trust people so carelessly, even me. They say blood is thicker than water, and I to think of you as a sister, but unfortunately gold is thicker than blood.
(Tarah hands the microphone back to Cameron as she and Sydney stare down)
Cameron: If this was your first shot, you just missed. I love Empire, and I love the time I spent competing against the other women in the Vixens Division, but I moved on. We moved on. We wanted more, and we got it. You’re right. We do think we’re better, and we’ve proved it again, and again, and again. Got a problem with it? Show up at the Grand Rampage, and prove us wrong.
(Cameron throws the microphone down as she and Sydney stare down. Sydney scowls at Di Consentes as she exits the ring)
Deadprez: Now THAT’S how you make a statement! I think Sydney came into this feeling a little too confident and she just paid for it by the veterans that have long since been here and done that!
Pierre: What a confrontation that was, and it looks as though things have certainly changed! Sydney now has something even more threatening to think about as she heads towards the Grand Rampage while Di Consentes has grown even stronger with the shocking addition of Tarah Nova!
(Cameron and HBG hand Tarah both of the Unified Tag Titles as she holds them up while HBG holds up the EAW Championship and Cameron holds up the Openweight Championship before the camera fades elsewhere)
(The camera cuts back to the ring where Aaron Fitzpatrick is shown with a microphone in hand)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Fitzpatrick: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall… AND IS FOR THE EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPIONSHIIIIPPPPP!!!….
(The crowd cheers as a National Elite Championship graphic appears across the screen)
(“New Leaf” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as Drake Jaeger makes his way out to the stage in black boots, black tights, a black motorcycle jacket, and black sunglasses with a smile on his face)
Deadprez: Now THIS is what I’ve been waiting for! As of late we’ve seen the birth of a new and improved Drake Jaeger, and I personally can’t wait to see it on full display here tonight, Pierre!
(Drake smiles as he displays his new “JUST GIVE UP” motivational towel)
Pierre: I don’t know, are you so sure he’s really turned a new leaf?
Deadprez: Why do you have to be so pessimistic all the time, Pierre? All that stress is what made you bald, you know. Just give this poor man the benefit of the doubt! Drake has been through so much and all he wants to do now is be one of the “good guys”.
(Drake puts on a glove and starts shaking the hands of the fans along the ramp, before taking it off and telling a worker at ringside to burn it)
Pierre: I have a feeling putting “good guys” in quotations is more appropriate than ever when it comes to him…
(“Till I Collapse” by Eminem plays all throughout the arena as Nobi makes his way out to the stage in blue an orange and blue-colored t-shirt, along with a hat and wristbands of the same color with the National Elite Championship around his waist)
Deadprez: Ugh, now this guy…
Pierre: Let’s not forget that Drake even has a bit of history with Nobi as he was very vocal about Nobi being a constant “failure” while he was here on commentary with me…
Deadprez: Can you blame Drake for that? I mean, come on, there was plenty of evidence at the time. Nobi constantly struggled to prove he was worthy of being Champion and it took him months and months to finally pull anything off. If anything, Drake intends to prove all of that was nothing short of a fluke!
Pierre: Well he’d be smart to not go underestimating Nobi, we both know he’s one of the most resilient competitors in EAW, and he certainly doesn’t aim to go down without a fight.
(“Till I Collapse” fades out as Nobi throws his shirt and hat to the crowd before the lights dim while two spotlights appear on he and Drake)
Fitzpatrick: First, in my corner to the left, the challenger…. From Japantown, Vancouver, British Columbia!…. He weighed in tonight at 203 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE CHANGED MAN”…. “NICE GUY” DRAKE JAAAAAAEEEEEGGGGGEEEERRRRR!!!….
(Drake points a gun hand gesture at Nobi before pretending to put the gun away and apologize)
Fitzpatrick: And his opponent, in the corner to my right…. From Indonesia!…. He weighed in tonight at 251 Pounds!…. HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION…. “THE WHITE KNIGHT”, NOOOOOOOOBBBBBBBBIIIIIIII!!!….
(Nobi shows off the National Elite Championship around his waist as the crowd cheers)
Deadprez: Hope he’s cherishing his last moments with it…
(Nobi takes off the National Elite Title and hands it over to the Official, who shows it to him, shows it to Drake, and finally holds it up for the crowd and hard camera to see. The Referee hands off the National Elite Title to a worker at ringside before calling for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre: This National Elite Championship contest is underway as Drake continues to smile… Making his way towards Nobi… As he extends a hand, of course. Nobi seems cautious about it, to no surprise. I would be too…
Deadprez: What? Why? It’s a handshake! Doesn’t anyone have some honor in them like Drake does?!
Pierre: Nobi looks like he’s not very interested knowing how Drake has history of trickery, but… Well, it seems his honor may get the better of him here as he extends his hand to accept the invitation… Both men shake hands as Drake continues to smile and compliment Nobi.
Deadprez: DRAKE PULLS NOBI IN! HE MISSES A LARIAT!
Pierre: NOBI’S STILL GOT DRAKE’S HAND AS HE PULLS NOW! HE’S GOT DRAKE ON HIS SHOULDERS!! ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT!!!!
Deadprez: No–Drake fights it and escapes off the back of Nobi! He sends him into the ropes! DRAKE FOLLOWS BEHIND!! DEVIL TRIGGER!!!! HE CAUGHT NOBI WITH THE DEVIL TRIGGER AGAINST THE ROPES AS NOBI DROPS TO THE CANVAS!!! DRAKE GOES FOR THE IMMEDIATE COVER!!
Referee: ONE!!!!……. TWO!!!!!!!
Pierre: AND NOBI KICKS OUT! It just wasn’t enough! Drake’s face says it all! He was hoping he had it finished there in record time! It’ll take more than that to put Nobi away, I’m afraid! Drake will have to keep the momentum going! He’s telling the Referee to get out of his way as he drags Nobi up! HE PULLS NOBI IN FROM BEHIND! NOBLE PHANTAAASSSMMMM!!!!
Deadprez: Nobi counters it with a side headlock takedown! Drake forces Nobi off of him as the two men scramble back to their feet! Nobi is still dazed from that Devil Trigger as he gets up! He drops to one knee! DRAKE IS UP AND RUSHES IN!! DEVIL TRIGGGGEERRRR!!!!

He realizes he’s in trouble! HE’S UP AS NOBI COMES FOR A SECOND LEAPING SHOULDER BLOCK!! Drake scrambles to the outside this time around! He’s damaged as he taunts Nobi, telling him to come for him if he wants to keep his momentum going! Nobi does exactly that was he goes to the outside! He’s quick about it too as Nobi quickly catches up to Drake! Drake slides back into the ring! He’s already on his feet as Nobi slides in behind him! Drake with a series of clubbing blows to the spine of Nobi just as he gets on the ring! Drake now stomping away at Nobi!
Pierre: He’s doing all he can! Nobi’s rising back to his feet despite Drake’s onslaught! He’s laying into the Champion with all he has!

(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Till I Collapse” by Eminem plays all throughout the arena as the Referee raises the right hand of a still downed Nobi)
Announcer: The Winner of this contest by pinfall…. AND STTTIIIIIIILLLLLL EAW NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION….. NOOOOOOOOBBBBBBBBIIIIIIIII!!!!
Deadprez: ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! HOW DID HE PULL THAT OFF?! DRAKE HAD HIM! HE HAD HIM PERFECTLY!
Pierre: I don’t know how Nobi pulled it off, but he did! He got the better of Drake Jaeger here tonight and managed to once more retain his National Elite Championship! What a match that was!
Deadprez: Unreal! That was a fluke as far as I’m concerned, damn it! Drake had him! He was THIS close!
(A damaged Nobi rises back to his feet as the Referee hands him the National Elite Championship)
Pierre: Well whatever the case, Nobi pulled off the huge victory! He remains as National Elite Champion and will continue to reign on his way to the Grand Rampage! What a match that was! Drake Jaeger gave his all, but it just wasn’t enough tonight!
(Drake Jaeger looks on from the nearby corner as Nobi extends a hand)
Pierre: And now it looks like the Champ wants to show Drake how it’s REALLY done!
(An angry Drake Jaeger declines the handshake as he rolls to the outside, still damaged as he leaves)
Deadprez: I don’t blame him one bit, Pierre, he’s a competitor and this is just what happens!
Pierre: Not very “Good” of Drake, but nonetheless, congratulations to Nobi!
(Drake Jaeger storms off as Nobi celebrates with the National Elite Championship in the ring before the camera fades elsewhere)
(Grand Rampage Ad Plays)
(A video recap plays of David Davidson and Jack Ripley’s rebellion against EAW Management as of late since losing the EAW Unified Tag Team Championships, leading to them helping take out Brian Daniels, before Robbie V returned as the new Vice President of EAW, forcing them into a match with one another)
(The camera cuts back to the ring where Aaron Fitzpatrick is shown with a microphone in hand)
Fitzpatrick: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall… And if either man refuses to compete, they will be FIRED!….
(“Becoming The Bull” by Atreyu plays all throughout the arena as David Davidson makes his way out to the stage, looking reluctant)
Announcer: First, making his way towards the ring…. From Las Vegas, Nevada!…. Weighing in at 215 Pounds!…. HE IS “THE SIN CITY SCRAPPER”…. DAVID DAAAAAVVVIIIIIDDDSSSSOOOOONNNNN!!!….
Deadprez: I have never been so disgusted with Management’s decision as I am with this one! It absolutely astounds me how you would go so far as to force the best tag team in EAW History to compete against one another!
Pierre: Well it wouldn’t be happening if they hadn’t helped in the brutal assault on the previous General Manager of Showdown, Brian Daniels – they should be grateful they weren’t fired or suspended!
(“Becoming The Bull” by Atreyu plays all throughout the arena as an angry Jack Ripley makes his way out to the stage)
Announcer: And his opponent!…. Making his way out to the ring…. From Las Vegas, Nevada!…. Weighing in at 202 Pounds!…. THIS IS…. “TOP SHELF” JACK RIPLEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!….
Deadprez: You can see it in the eyes of The High Rollerz how much they absolutely hate this – this is all just going way too far, MOST of the attack was Tiberius Jones’ doing anyway!
Pierre: I feel as though that doesn’t make any difference, and The High Rollerz themselves have shown no remorse for the attack whatsoever, so it’s probably best that they just accept their punishment.
Deadprez: A small part of their punishment, you mean! Robbie himself said this is the rest of their lives now! Who knows where it ends, if ever!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre: This contest is officially underway as both men step forth into the middle of the ring… It’s clear neither of them want to go through with this, but unfortunately it’s either this or they lose their jobs… Both men staring down… Davidson doesn’t want to do this at all… RIPLEY PUSHES HIM?! What’s going on? Is there some kind of dissension here?
Deadprez: I don’t know! Davidson seems as surprised as we are! Ripley is telling him to fight him! He doesn’t want them to lose their jobs! Davidson is shaking his head! He doesn’t want to do this! RIPLEY SHOVES HIM AGAIN! Davidson isn’t looking too happy about that! Davidson still shaking his head “no”!
Pierre: RIPLEY SMACKS DAVIDSON ACROSS THE FACE! HE GETS IN DAVIDSON’S FACE HE’S TELLING DAVIDSON TO COME AT HIM! HE’S READY TO FIGHT! DAVIDSON IS LOSING IT! HE’S STOMPING AROUND THE RING! I THINK RIPLEY MAY HAVE LIT A FIRE IN HIS PARTNER! RIPLEY TELLING HIM TO GIVE HIM ALL HE’S GOT! HE’S EGGING DAVIDSON ON! DAVIDSON CHARGES!!!
Deadprez: RIPLEY SIDESTEPS IT! RIPLEY CHARGES INTO THE ROPES!! DAVIDSON INTO THE ROPES!!
Pierre: …. Both of them into the ropes? What on Earth is… Oh boy… Both men now with simultaneous criss-crosses… Both of The High Rollerz literally just running back and forth in the ring between each other!
Deadprez: Hold on, Pierre! It looks like Ripley ran out of breath! Davidson stops as well to check on his partner! Davidson is yelling at the Referee to check on Ripley and make sure he’s still able to compete!
Pierre: Yeah… And it seems like Ripley is nodding and saying he can keep going… And now he’s…. Asking for water… Davidson exits to the outside, grabbing a bottle of water from a fan…
Deadprez: Davidson rushes back into the ring! He’s got the water to Ripley, who takes his time drinking it! This is intense! HOLD ON–DAVIDSON ROLLS RIPLEY UP FROM BEHIND WITH A SCHOOLBOY PIN!!!
Pierre: RIPLEY KICKS OUT!
Deadprez: BOTH MEN RUSH BACK TO THEIR FEET AND STARE DOWN! RIPLEY TELLS DAVIDSON TO LOOK IN THE DIRECTION HE’S POINTING! DAVIDSON OBLIGES AS RIPLEY ROLLS HIM UP FROM BEHIND!!
Deadprez: DAVIDSON KICKS OUT AS THEY BOTH GET BACK ON THEIR FEET! DAVIDSON PULLS RIPLEY IN FOR AN INSIDE CRADLE!!
Deadprez: RIPLEY ROLLS IT OVER INTO AN INSIDE CRADLE ON DAVIDSON!!!
Deadprez: DAVIDSON ROLLS IT INTO AN INSIDE CRADLE ON RIPLEY!!!!
Deadprez: RIPLEY ROLLS IT OVER INTO AN INSIDE CRADLE ON DAVIDSON!!!
Deadprez: DAVIDSON KICKS OUT AS THEY BOTH SCRAMBLE BACK TO THEIR FEET! DAVIDSON PUTS A HAND OUT AND SEEMS TO…
Pierre: Davidson isn’t even near Ripley as he pretends to choke him while Ripley pretends to be choked! Come on!
Deadprez: HE’S USING THE FORCE, PIERRE! HE’S GOT RIPLEY RIGHT WHERE HE WANTS HIM! HE SETS RIPLEY UP!! A CHOKESLAM CONNECTS USING THE FORCE AS RIPLEY IS DOWN!!! DAVIDSON RUSHES OVER FOR THE COVER AS HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!…….. TWO!!!!!!!!!…….. THREE!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Becoming The Bull” by Atreyu plays all throughout the arena as David Davidson celebrates loudly in the ring while Jack Ripley remains motionless on the canvas)
Deadprez: WHAT A MATCH! FIVE STARS, PIERRE! I NEVER THOUGHT I’D SEE THE DAY!
Announcer: The Winner of this contest by pinfall!!……. DAVID DAVIIIDDDDDSSSOOOOONNNNNN!!!!
Pierre: I… I don’t even know what to say…. What did we even just watch?
Deadprez: A fiercely competitive match between two partners, Pierre! Are you blind?!
Pierre: They can’t be serious….
(Jack Ripley suddenly comes back to life and rolls out of the ring, grabbing Aaron Fitzpatrick’s microphone, testing it as he smacks it several times before rolling back into the ring and going over to David Davidson while “Becoming The Bull” fades out)
Jack: David Davidson, you have just pulled off the upset of the century in what is sure to be remembered as a five-star classic, how do you feel?
(David Davidson pretends to have tears in his eyes, acting choked up before he replies)
David: You know… This is one of those moments that you work your entire life towards, and you’re not sure it’ll ever really happen, but… I just want everyone to know that dreams DO come true! They DO come true!
Jack: How did you find the will to pull off such an amazing victory?
David: Well I just won the coin toss backstage and I let nature take its course after that. It was easily the toughest match of my life and I can’t thank our dear lord Robbie V for giving us such a great opportunity.
(David Davidson and Jack Ripley simultaneously do a Nazi salute)
David & Jack: HEIL SEKAIICHI!
Pierre: Oh no…
(Robbie V makes his way out to the stage as security follows him. As Robbie looks on, he shakes his head and tells security to leave as he makes his way down to the ring)
Deadprez: At least he has the guts to stand in the ring by himself with these two… Can’t say it’s too wise, but still…
Pierre: I really don’t like where this is going…
(Robbie enters the ring, pacing around The High Rollerz look on)
David: WE ARE BLESSED WITH THE PRESENCE OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR–
(Robbie slaps David Davidson across the face)
Pierre: Oh dear…
Deadprez: Not a smart move…
(Davidson grins as he and Ripley stare down with Robbie)
Deadprez: Ripley and Davidson surrounding the Vice President! We’ve seen this before!
Pierre: HOLD ON! THERON NIKOLAS IS RUSHING OUT HERE!! THE HIGH ROLLERZ TAKE NOTICE AS THEY BOLT OUT OF THE RING JUST AS THERON SLIDES IN!! A smirk on the face of Robbie V as Davidson and Ripley look on from the outside! They should have seen this coming! They wanted to threaten Theron for not joining them and karma just got them back for it!
(Robbie steps towards the ropes, egging on The High Rollerz to get in the ring as he and Theron stare down with Ripley and Davidson)
Deadprez: HOLD ON–THERON FROM BEHIND!! HE’S GOT ROBBIE?!! TOUCH OF HEROINE!!!!! HE JUST LAID OUT ROBBIE WITH THE TOUCH OF HEROINE!!!
Pierre: WHAT?! WHAT THE HELL?! HAS HE LOST HIS DAMN MIND?! HE JUST LAID OUT THE VICE PRESIDENT! THERON NIKOLAS LOOKS DOWN AT ROBBIE AS THE HIGH ROLLERZ LOOK ON IN SHOCK! THEY CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE IT!
Deadprez: Theron with a stoic expression as he exits the ring… AND NOW A SMILE ON HIS FACE AS HE HUGS DAVIDSON AND RIPLEY! THEY’VE BANDED TOGETHER AFTER ALL! THERON NIKOLAS HAS TURNED HIS BACK ON ROBBIE V AND EAW!
Pierre: I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I’M SEEING! WHAT IS HE THINKING?!
(Theron and The High Rollerz make their way up to the stage as Robbie recovers in the ring; Theron demands a microphone as a smirk crosses his face.)
Theron: I… Robbie, I didn’t want to do this. I told David. I told Jack; I had no interest in getting involved in their business against you and Brian – but, as I thought about it… I thought about it and saw that I had no choice in the matter. I thought about it; I questioned it. I spent two weeks trying to reason not to put you down, but the truth is… I have a lot that I have to get off my chest.
(Theron sits down on the stage, resting both forearms on his knees.)
Theron: Ten months. It’s been ten months since I walked into Pain for Pride and made EVERYONE take notice of who I was. People laughed when I was given time to announce my participation in the 24/7 Battle Royal – they… instead they wanted you, Robbie. They wanted DEDEDE. The Battle of the Gods II! Get rid of Theron – give us what we want! Give us one of the most over-fucking-hyped jerkfests that I’ve seen in my entire fucking life. Get rid of the kid who had been running through every single fucking name that this company had thrown in his way, so we can see two men that were over the hill could try to have another “Match of the Year”, that never really lived up to the hype.
(Theron drops his head as he grits his teeth.)
Theron: But… but, I let it roll off my shoulders. I looked onto Pain for Pride and what was important. I walked out in front of thousands upon thousands and overcome thirty three other people to win that contract. They weren’t talking about the people that were showcased at that event, but the fact that I overshadowed every single fucking person in this company about how I “wouldn’t let up”. I was on top of the world. I announced that I would cash in against the man that I called a king for the grandest prize in this entire industry. I gave a performance of a fucking lifetime – I was blatantly fucking screwed out of the EAW World Championship; Tiberius Jones, Ares Vendetta and Lannister had to hit me with their best fucking shot to do enough to keep me down. But, what happened after that? I wasn’t given a chance to claim what I had been screwed out of. I had to earn another opportunity. I had to compete against Diamond Cage for the chance to face Tiberius again – which wasn’t a hard task – and when I did so successfully, what happened then? Ares Vendetta and Lannister were rewarded. They screwed me out of the EAW World Championship and they’re not punished. They’re given a shot at The High Rollerz Tag Team Championships, and Brian’s grand idea was to throw all six of us in the No Way Out structure. Instead of giving me what I deserved; instead of punishing those who had done so wrong – this company throws the odds completely against US. Not once, but twice I was screwed. Twice I had to watch as the thing I should have at a month prior left on the wrong shoulder. I tried my hardest to look past it. I tried my hardest to do what I could to get back into the fold, and boy did I fucking do it, Robbie. I beat Tiberius. I did what I always knew that I would when there wasn’t anyone there to intervene. That was to qualify to the chamber, and I was grateful. But, I wasn’t grateful for long. That’s when this company started to hold her hand, Robbie. That’s when people like you, Robbie, pushed her into the spotlight. The GREAT Heart Break Gal.
(Theron chuckles as Robbie pushes himself back up to his feet.)
Theron: That’s when people like you starting doing everything you could to make sure she succeeded. She doesn’t beat the champion and what is she given? We’ll give her a shot at the title before the Elimination Chamber! Oh, she failed there… but, she might still succeed in the chamber! Damn, she couldn’t continue because of her own fucking stupidity – BUT, DON’T WORRY, WE’LL JUST ADD HER TO THE KING OF ELITE EAW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH! WE’LL CONTINUE TO HOLD HER FUCKING HAND UNTIL SHE SUCCEEDS! While I, I… while what was I given? I was forced to fight continuously for every fucking inch I’ve moved forward, while our GREAT champion… Claudia Jain VENDETTA was given chance after chance. Do you think it’s a coincidence that the woman who has personal relations with the Vice President of the company has that championship over her shoulder? Of course not, but they’re hoping their hardest that everyone believes wholeheartedly that she actually earned it. If you want to call this sour grapes; look back at the King of Elite tournament. I was the only person on Showdown that had to fucking qualify for the thing. Not even Ares Vendetta after putting Lannister and his pregnant sister in the hospital had to do that. This company has had an agenda against me from day one. Day fucking one. From hiding Rex McAllister’s National Elite Championship, giving the opportunity to fucking Stark of all people; to doing everything you fucking can to make sure that I don’t take that crown jewel.
(Theron looks down at Robbie who clutches as the back of his head.)
Theron: People like you are the reason I stand with these two men. The best Tag Team this company has ever fucking had. Fuck RoViper. Fuck Dynamite Rain. These two men stand above both of them. But, this company has been built on fucking popularity contests for years. This belief that because someone has struggled to get anywhere in their fucking career that they suddenly deserve to be in the World Championship conversation because they’ve been in the company for a couple of years; yeah, I’m looking at you, Voltage. It makes me sick. People in the back; they’ll preach about appreciation. They preach about how much people deserve what they get. But, they’re the same people that sit there telling themselves they’re better than they are. They’re the same people that grit their teeth and tell themselves that it should be them in their position, but lie because they’d rather be a fake than say what’s really on their mind.
(The hint of a smirk crosses the face of Theron as he looks at Robbie.)
Theron: You’re the man that’s going to pay so fucking dearly, Robbie. You’re the man that’s going to be left with absolutely nothing fucking left. We’re going to strip away every single thing you hold dear. We’re going leave everything you’ve built as more than rubble crushed by boots. Everything that makes you “Legendary”.
(Theron drops the microphone as “I Hope You Suffer” picks up as the three stand on the stage looking down at Robbie who stands in the ring with a nasty scowl on his face. The camera fades elsewhere as Theron and The High Rollerz make their leave.)

(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre: Well there’s the bell and – SUPERKICK! DESMOND HELMS WASTES NO TIME AND SHOOTS STRAIGHT IN WITH A SUPERKICK ON SUN JIAO-LONG!
Desmond: THAT’S FOR MY FUCKING OAKLEYS, YOU CUNT!
Deadprez: HELMS IS LETTING OUT A TON OF AGGRESSION ON SUN. AND DESMOND TACKLES HIM THROUGH THE ROPES! Both men spill to the outside but it was not over the top so they are still technically in this. That leaves four in the ring. Florida Man attempts to broker an alliance with his fellow Floridian in Ashaad Johnson. Ashaad nods in agreement, and Daryl Kinkade and Shane Gates appear to band together to meet the other duo head on. ONLY ONE! ASHAAD JOHNSON BLINDSIDES FLORIDA MAN WITH THE SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!
Ashaad: I AIN’T HERE TO CARRY DEADWEIGHT, INSHALLAH!
Pierre: Kinkade is the first to rush Johnson. BUT ASHAAD CATCHES HIM UP IN THE URANAGE! Kinkade is slammed down on the canvas and Ashaad moves on to Shane Gates… DROPKICK clatters the big man. Gates sends Johnson stumbling backwards but he doesn’t go down. Ashaad rebounds off the ropes… RUNNING SHOULDER BLOCK KNOCKS GATES CLEAN OFF HIS FEET! Johnson comes back around again… AND BULLDOZES THROUGH GATES WITH ANOTHER! Shane Gates attempts to stagger back to his feet BUT ASHAAD JOHNSON HOISTS HIM UP INTO THE FIREMAN’S CARRY! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE!!! BUT LOOK! JOHNSON MARCHES TO THE EDGE OF THE RING! HE LAUNCHES GATES OVER THE ROPES!!!
Deadprez: BUT SHANE LANDS ON THE APRON! It is an excellent save but he is still in a precarious situation as Ashaad pulls him in… INVERTED STOMP FACEBUSTER BY GATES! He drops onto his back and rolls safely back in under the bottom rope. Meanwhile Ashaad sways away rubbing his jaw. AND HE TURNS RIGHT INTO A BICYCLE KICK FROM DARYL KINKADE! IT LANDS FLUSH AND ASHAAD DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE FOR THE FIRST TIME!
Pierre: Kinkade hooks Johnson from the front and drags him back to his feet. AND GATES MOVES IN TO HELP OUT! GATES AND KINKADE EACH THROW AN ARM OVER THEIR RESPECTIVE SHOULDERS AND THEY HEAVE TOGETHER TO LIFT JOHNSON FOR A TANDEM VERTICAL SUPLEX! NO!!! ASHAAD DROPS BACK TO HIS FEET! HE IS KEEPING HIS CENTRE OF GRAVITY LOW AND JUST WON’T BUDGE… DOUBLE VERTICAL SUPLEX!!! IT’S AN INSANE DISPLAY OF PHYSICAL STRENGTH FROM ASHAAD JOHNSON AS HE MANAGES TO LIFT BOTH MEN AT ONCE! HERISES BACK TO HIS FEET, POUNDING HIS CHEST WITH ADRENALINE BECAUSE HE KNOWS IT! ASHAAD JOHNSON IS ON FIR-ENZUIGIRI!!! FLORIDA MAN GETS HIS REVENGE, CATCHING ASHAAD JOHNSON OFF-GUARD AND KNOCKING HIM AND LAYING HIM OUT ON THE CANVAS!
Deadprez: Hell hath no fury like a drunk Floridian scorned. Florida Man finds himself the last man standing in the ring and… What is he doing? Oh… FLORIDA MAN IS CLIMBING UP THE CORNER TURNBUCKLE! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS NOT ADVISED – PARTICULARLY IN A BATTLE ROYAL. HE SHOULD JUST GO AHEAD AND ELIMINATE ASHAAD WHILE HE HAS THE CHANCE, BUT HIS MIND IS MADE UP! FLORIDA MAN IS DETERMINED TO RAIN PAIN DOWN ON THE 250 POUND HAMMER OF ALLAH! HE’S PERCHED… STUPIDITY IN MOTION! BUT HELMS!!! DESMOND HELMS, WHERE DID HE COME FROM!?!? HE’S UP ON THE APRON BESIDE FLORIDA MAN!!!
Desmond: AYE! GET FUCKED, YOU GARBOLOGIST CUNT!
Pierre: MY WORD! DESMOND HELMS JUST SLAPPED FLORIDA MAN ACROSS THE FACE! HE’S FALLING…
Fitzpatrick: Florida Man has been eliminated.
Deadprez: Now that is what I call Stupidity In Motion. Florida Man took a needless risk and Desmond Helms made him pay for it. Kinkade is just starting to find his feet again back in the ring. Helms springboards off the ropes FOR A METEORA! He lands it, driving Kinkade back down into the canvas BUT HERE IS GATES FROM BEHIND! SHANE GRABS DESMOND BY THE TIGHTS AND ATTEMPTS TO TOSS HIM OVER THE ROPES BUT HELMS IS HOLDING ON… WAIT! SUN JIAO-LONG IS BACK IN THE MIX HERE! HE IS UP ON THE APRON TRYING TO HELP ELIMINATE HELMS FROM THE OUTSIDE! TWO ON ONE HERE IN THIS CRITICAL POSITION AND PROSPECTS ARE REALLY LOOKING BLEAK FOR THIS CUN-
Pierre: CONSUMMATE COMPETITOR! I agree, Desmond Helms has done exceptionally well to hold on here for as long as he has, but with each moment his chances of staying in this match are dwindling away. Sun and Gates continue to push Helms closer and closer to the brink. Meanwhile, Ashaad is climbing back to his feet. HE RUSHES IN TOWARDS THE COMMOTION… KNEE TATTOO! BOTH KNEES DRIVEN PAINFULLY INTO THE SPINE OF SHANE GATES FOR THE LUNGBLOWER! Ashaad may have just saved Desmond there but, regardless, that does not appear to be his priority as he drags Shane Gates to the center of the ring… T-BONE SUPLEX CONNECTS! GATES IS GROUNDED AGAIN BY THE POWERFUL SLAM AND JOHNSON SLIDES INTO THE MOUNT FOR THE GROUND AND POUND!
Deadprez: Ashaad is really HAMMERING away with some really vicious strikes there but turning our attention back to the more immediate chance of an elimination with Helms and Sun, we see what is still a very tentative situation. Helms, pushing against the strength of the lighter man, manages to plant his feet back down on the canvas.
Desmond: YEAH NAH! YOU FUCKED IT, JACKIE CHONG!!!
Pierre: DESMOND HELMS DELIVERS A LOUD, ECHOING OPEN PALM STRIKE ACROSS THE CHEEK OF SUN JIAO-LONG! JIAO-LONG’S EYELIDS FLUTTER A MOMENT AS HE TRIES TO REFOCUS HIS VISION, BUT HIS HEAD IS SPINNING! HE LOOKS ABOUT TO FALL… NO!!! SUN RELIATES WITH A HUGE ELBOW STRIKE THAT RATTLES THE SIDE OF DESMOND’S HEAD! HELMS FALLS BACKWARDS A TRYING TO KEEP HIS FOOTING – BUT HERE’S JIAO-LONG… SPRINGBOARD MISSILE DROPKICK! THE IMPACT SENDS DESMOND HELMS ROLLING ACROSS THE RING!!!
Deadprez: Nicely done by Sun Jiao-Long. I don’t usually suggest you hop about on the ropes in this sort of match, but he made it work this time. He cannot let up now though and he knows it. Jiao-Long races after Helms… V-TRIGGER! DARYL KINKADE INTERCEPTS AND KNOCKS SUN JIAO-LONG’S LIGHTS OUT WITH THE KNEE! RACING IMMEDIATELY OFF THE ROPES AGAIN, HE SPEEDS AT ASHAAD – AND PENALTY KICKS HIM SQUARE IN THE RIBS! JOHNSON RECOILS FROM THE IMPACT, AND KINKADE GOES IN FOR THE KILL, CHOPPING ASHAAD DOWN WITH A RAPID FIRE SUCCESSION OF PUNCHES, KICKS AND ELBOWS!
Pierre: Shane Gates kips back up to a vertical base and assists Kinkade in beating down Ashaad Johnson. Together they pull him up and lace his arms over the top rope to steady him. KINKADE RACES OFF THE ROPES… BUT JOHNSON POWERS FREE AND ERUPTS TOWARDS HIM! TRAIN OF CHANGE!!! ASHAAD JOHNSON CRUSHES DARYL KINKADE WITH A MASSIVE CROSSBODY! THAT BLOW SURE DID HIT WITH THE WEIGHT OF A FREIGHT TRAIN BUT HERE IS GATES… RUNNING SENTON TO THE SPINE OF ASHAAD JOHNSON! GATES ROLLS SWIFTLY TO HIS FEET AND SPRINTS OFF THE ROPES… AND THAT IS A LOW DROPKICK DRILLED INTO THE SIDE OF ASHAAD’S HEAD BEFORE HE COULD EVEN PROPERLY PULL HIMSELF UP OFF THE CANVAS!
Deadprez: This is Gates’ chance to take the powerhouse out of this match. He drags Ashaad up and taxis him over to the edge of the ring… BUT ASHAAD STILL HAS SOME FIGHT IN HIM! GATES AND JOHNSON ARE LOCKED IN A DESPERATE STRUGGLE TO TIP THE OTHER OVER THE ROPES! ASHAAD AND HIS HERCULEAN PHYSIQUE ARE GETTING THE BETTER OF IT… BUT HERE IS KINKADE! HE CLEANS JOHNSON’S CLOCK WITH A RUNNING FOREARM SMASH BEFORE REACHING DOWN TO GRAB A LEG! SHANE GATES AND DARYL KINKADE BOTH WORK TOGETHER TO LIFT ASHAAD JOHNSON… AND THEY’VE DONE IT! THE MIGHT OF ALLAH TUMBLES OUT OF THE RING!
Fitzpatrick: Ashaad Johnson has been eliminated.
Pierre: Kinkade and Gates both take a moment to breath and enjoy that elimination. Gates points over at Sun Jiao-Long identifying their next targe-DARYL JUST CAUGHT SHANE BY THE WRIST! THE ALLIANCE PROVES SHORT-LIVED AS KINKADE SPINS HIM OUT… UNHINGED MELODY! DARYL GOES FOR THE SHORT-ARM FOREARM SMASH BUT SHANE DIPS UNDERNEATH IT AND APPLIES THE FULL-NELSON! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE SHATTERED MIND NORTHERN LIGHTS BUSTER!!!
Deadprez: JUST HOLD ON A MOMENT! DESMOND HELMS! DESMOND HELMS PULLS UP BEHIND GATES APPLIES A REAR WAISTLOCK OF HIS OWN… HOLY MOLY!!! HELMS HITS GATES WITH THE GERMAN WHILE GATES IN TURN PULLS DARYL KINKADE OVER HIS HEAD FOR A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! THAT IS TWO MEN FOR THE PRICE OF ONE DROPPED ONTO THE BACKS OF THEIR HEADS!!! BUT DESMOND CANNOT KEEP THEM TOGETHER! BOTH VICTIMS SHOW EXCELLENT RING AWARENESS TO ROLL IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS AND EXIT THE RING SAFELY UNDERNEATH THE BOTTOM ROPE!
Desmond: FOR FUCK’S SAKE… FUCKING CUNTS!
Pierre: Desmond Helms is quite visibly irate that both men have rolled to where he cannot eliminate them. But now a devious grin creeps across his face as Helms turns his attention to Sun Jiao-Long. Desmond swaggers over Jiao-Long who is just now shaking off the cobwebs from that knee he sustained from Daryl Kinkade. Helms makes a show of flipping him off before hauling up the Chinese from behind… HE’S LOOKING FOR THE KEW DRIVER! THIS COULD END JIAO-LONG’S NIGHT ONCE AND FOR ALL AS DESMOND HOISTS HIM UP… BUT SUN FLOATS OVER! SUN JIAO-LONG SOMEHOW MANAGES TO SLIP FREE DOWN THE BACK OF DESMOND HELMS AND HE CATCHES THE WRIST… THE BLACK SPOT! THE WRIST-CLUTCH OPEN PALM STRIKE TO THE CHEEK CONNECTS AND THE LOOK ON DESMOND HELMS’ FACE SAYS IT ALL! HE JUST SUFFERED A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE AND HE IS SHELLSHOCKED!!!
Deadprez: DESMOND HELMS FLIES INTO A RAGE, REPLYING WITH AN OPEN PALM STRIKE OF HIS OWN TO SUN JIAO-LONG’S CHEEK! BAH GAWD!!! THESE TWO ARE JUST TRADING OPEN PALM STRIKES ONE AFTER THE OTHER! FLESH IS TURNING RED! THE AIR IS FILLED WITH THE ECHOING SOUNDS OF THESE STRIKES BUT NEITHER MAN IS FLINCHING! JIAO-LONG DUCKS THE SLAP FROM HELMS! SUN UNLOADS A HIGH-SPEED COMBINATION OF OPEN PALM STRIKES CONNECTING AT ALL ANGLES WITH DESMOND’S HEAD AND TORSO! HE CALLS THIS THE THOUSAND ARMED BUDDHA BECAUSE THIS IS SOME ASCENDED LEVEL ULTRA-INSTINCT PALM STRIKING TECHNIQUE!!!
Pierre: Helms doesn’t look like he’s able to defend himself from any of these strikes. Jiao-Long blasts him backwards into the ropes with a double palm thrust to the midsection. HELMS REBOUNDS BACK WITH AN OVERHAND BOWL – THE YORKER!!! IT CONNECTS SWEETLY AND BOTH MEN COLLAPSE DOWN TO A KNEE… BUT SUN JIAO-LONG HOPS BACK TO HIS FEET! SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK!!! JIAO-LONG PUTTING THOSE EDUCATED FEET TO WORK BY STAMPING ONE INTO THE SIDE OF DESMOND HELMS’ TEMPLE! THE AUSTRALIAN DROPS LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES AND AN EXHAUSTED SUN HIMSELF DROPS BACK DOWN TO A KNEE!
Deadprez: Not the right time to rest, if he doesn’t put Helms away now, it will only bite him again later. Jiao-Long needs to find-OHOHOHOO! It’s Kinkade climbing back into the ring. Sun spots him and forces himself up to a vertical base. BUT KINKADE CHARGES AND SPRINGS OFF HELMS’ BACK – AFTER MIDNIGHT!!! SUN JIAO-LONG EATS THE SHINING WIZARD AND GETS PUT TO SLEEP! DARYL KINKADE WASTES NO TIME IN PICKING HIS BODY UP AND DUMPING HIM OVER THE ROPES!
Fitzpatrick: Sun Jiao-Long has been eliminated.
Pierre: And then there were three. Kinkade on his second elimination now looking for a third as he marches over to the prone Desmond Helms. He locks him into a front facelock and drags him up to his feet. BUT HELMS FIGHTS BACK WITH A PALM TO THE MIDSECTION! AND ANOTHER! ANOTHER! Those liver shots are doing the damage and Kinkade is forced to release his grip. This gives Helms an opening, to maneuver and find Daryl’s back. GERMAN SUPLEX! But it is blocked. Kinkade tosses Helms over his head with a snapmare and runs straight off the ropes… IT’S A LOW BASEBALL SLIDE CLOTHESLINE! BUT DESMOND ROLLS ALONG WITH THE MOMENTUM! HE’S UP IN A FLASH AND ALREADY ISOLATING LIMBS AND TWISTING THEM WHERE HE WANTS THEM – THE PARADISE LOCK!!!
Deadprez: It is a trapping hold. Not a submission. It’s not painful, not physically anyway though you may call it painfully humiliating. Desmond Helms has just tied Daryl Kinkade up into a pretty bow AND HE DELIVERS A DROPKICK RIGHT TO THE TAILBONE! HIT IT RIGHT, MISS THE FAT AND THAT’S A REALLY EXCRUCIATING SHOT AS WE SEE HERE! Kinkade scrambles away to the ropes and uses them as leverage to haul himself back up. But that isn’t a safe place to be in this match. DESMOND SPRINTS IN FOR THE CLOTHESLINE! BUT KINKADE DUCKS IT! HE SPRINTS PAST HIM AND SPRINGBOARDS ONTO THE ROPES – DROPKICK!!! SHANE GATES COMES OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A DROPKICK THAT SENDS KINKADE SPILLING OUT TO RINGSIDE!!!
Fitzpatrick: Daryl Kinkade has been eliminated.
Pierre: I feel for Daryl. Looked like he was going for a tornado ddt or some other big move and he probably could have hit Desmond Helms with it if not for the surprise interception of Shane Gates. In any case, WE ARE DOWN TO OUR FINAL TWO! One of these men will enter the Grand Rampage match at number 20 and so have a fine chance of going all the way on the night. BOTH MEN CHARGE TOGETHER AT ONCE! Helms drops Gates with a leg lariat then swiftly rolls to his feet. BIG KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION BY HELMS! He drives it again and again into the side of Gates’ ribs, trying to batter down his gas tank and inflict some pain in the process.
Desmond: I’M A FULL FUCKING LEDGE!!!
Deadprez: Desmond backs up into the corner, lining up it seems for the Full Ledge Shining Wizard. HELMS BLITZES TOWARD GATES – AND HE’S POPPED UP! DESMOND HELMS FREEFALLS INTO A GUTBUSTER DROP THAT KNOCKS THE WIND FROM OUT OF HIM! SHANE GATES RISES UP WITH HIS ARMS HELD HIGH!!!
Shane: I’M A NATURAL-BORN KILLER, MUTHAFUCKER!!!
Pierre: Shane Gates cradles Desmond’s head and places it between his legs. AND GATES THROWS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS IN THE POWERBOMB POSITION! AND HE STARTS WALKING TOWARDS THE EDGE OF THE RING! SHANE GATES IS LEGITIMATELY LOOKING TO POWERBOMB DESMOND HELMS OUT OF THE RING! HE COULD BREAK HIS NECK! HE COULD PARALYSE HIM FOR LIFE! GATES TRIES TO LAUNCH HIM OVER, BUT DESMOND WILL NOT LET GO OF THIS CHANCE SO EASILY! HE REACHES BACK WITH HIS ARMS AND CLUTCHES THE ROPES! HE TIGHTENS HIS LEGS INTO A HEADSCISSORS AND NOW IT IS DESMOND HELMS TRYING TO USE HIS ENTIRE BODY TO DRAG GATES OUT OVER THE ROPES!!!
Deadprez: OH MY WORD, HE’S DONE IT! Both men fall over the ropes and land upon the apron. One small mistake either way and it is all over… AND GATES CLOCKS HELMS WITH A PUNCH TO THE SKULL! HELMS STRIKES BACK WITH A PALM ACROSS THE CHEEK! GATES WITH THE PUNCH AGAIN! HELMS WITH THE PALM! THESE TWO ARE JUST SLUGGING IT OUT HERE BUT WHO IS GOING TO BREAK THE DEADLOCK AND HOW?!?!?
Pierre: DESMOND HELMS WITH THE KNEE LIFT! GATES WAS LEANING TOO FAR IN AND HELMS MADE HIM PAY FOR IT WITH A KNEE RIGHT ACROSS THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE! SHANE GATES IS OFF BALANCE WITH ONLY FINGERTIPS HOLDING ONTO THE ROPES… PELÉ KICK! A DESPERATION STRIKE BY GATES BUT IT HOOKS RIGHT AROUND THE BACK OF DESMOND’S HEAD AND SHANE MANAGES NOT TO FALL OFF! DESMOND HELM’S LEGS ARE NOODLES RIGHT NOW… SUPERKICK! DESMOND CONNECTS WITH THE SUPERKICK AND GATES FALLS… NO! HE MANAGES TO STEADY HIMSELF AT THE VERY LAST MOMENT, BUT HE IS ROCKED! HE IS VERY VERY HURT AS HELMS PULLS HIM IN… THE KEW DRIVER!!! GATES’ HEAD IS SPIKED INTO THE APRON AND HE BOUNCES OFF IT TO RINGSIDE!!!
Fitzpatrick: Shane Gates has been eliminated.
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Fever” by Deaf Havana erupts from the speakers as Desmond Helms starts to celebrate at ringside, shuffling to his theme and the rhythmic chants of “YOU’RE A CUNT”.)
Fitzpatrick: Ladies and gentlemen, your winner… DESMOND HELMS!!!
Deadprez: No… This guy? Really? I just… I… Just not this cun-
Pierre: RIGHT! I “can’t” believe his performance tonight either. Desmond Helms really pulled out all of the stops though and I suppose he’s earned a fine spot in the 2018 Grand Ramage match.
(Desmond Helms shimmies over to the announcer’s table, snatching Pierre’s mic.)
Desmond: YOU SEE THAT, CUNTS?!?! I’M A FUCKING LEDGE! CALL ME LEDGEMOND HELMS BECAUSE I’M ABOUT TO WIN THE LEDGE RAMPAGE AND NONE OF THESE BOGANS ARE EVER GONNA STOP ME! FUCK UP, MATE!!!
Deadprez: What just happened, Pierre?
Pierre: Well um… We’ve just decided our… colourful… number 20 entrant to the Grand Rampage. I’m sure he’ll make us here on Showdown proud…
(“Fever” by Deaf Havana fades out as slow clapping can be heard)
Pierre: Hold on a second… What’s that?
(A confused Desmond Helms looks on as a smiling Damien Murrow slowly makes his way out to the stage in a black suit and a microphone under his left arm as he continues to slowly clap)
Demond (no mic): WHAT DO YA WANT, CUNT?
(Damien chuckles as he grabs his microphone)
Damien: Oh, me? I just wanted to be the first to congratulate you, Mr. Helms! What a victory for you! You managed to overcome all those other competitors and earned yourself the prestigious number 20 spot in the Grand Rampage Match! What an achievement!
(Damien continues to smile as he looks to the fans)
Damien: Give Desmond Helms a big round of applause, everyone! You overcame all of those men and those odds stacked against you and now you’ve got a chance at doing it all over again in bigger and badder way! All of those people! All of those names! Just… Names.
(Damien’s smile slowly shifts into a serious expression)
Damien: They’re all just names.
Desmond (no mic): YOU’RE BORIN THE PISS OUTTA ME!
(Damien smiles once more)
Damien: My apologies. You’re right, where are my manners? You want to be entertained, right? All of you? You want a show?
Pierre: HOLD ON–DESMOND IS TURNED AROUND–ARES VENDETTA WITH A KNEE TO THE GUT!! HE PULLS HIM IN!! PEDIGREE DRIVER!!!! ARES VENDETTA–WHERE THE HELL DID HE JUST COME FROM?! HE JUST LAID OUT DESMOND HELMS!!
(Ares Vendetta stands over a downed Desmond Helms)
Damien: And you’re just another name too, Mr. Helms. Just another mongrel. And you, just like the rest, will fall at the Grand Rampage to Ares Vendetta. Again, congratulations on your victory. You’ve got what you’ve earned tonight. At the Grand Rampage, you – just like every other competitor in the Grand Rampage Match – will get what you deserve. On wrongs swift vengeance waits.
(Ares Vendetta smiles as the lights in the arena go out)[INTERMISSION]
Deadprez: The time has come, Pierre! We’re moments away from our main event and what a match it’s gonna be! Two of the most fierce competitors in EAW duking it out in an Extreme Rules Match of all things! I can’t wait to watch these two rip each other apart!
Pierre: It’s a match both need to win and neither can afford to lose! They’ve got so much to prove here against one another and only through sheer will and endurance will one be able to walk out of this inevitable war with the EAW Championship around their waist!
(A video package plays, recapping the rivalry between Diamond Cage and Heart Break Gal over the EAW Championship)
(A video package plays with prestigious music, showing all the EAW Champions of the past: CM Banks, Mak, Masters, Mr. DEDEDE, Captain Charisma, WWEFan, Lethal Consequences, StarrStan, Extreme Enigma, Kevin Devastation, Alexander Da Vinci, Heart Break Boy, John Alloy, Superior Quality 85, Kawajai, Jacob Senn, Diamond Cage, Xavier Williams, Zack Crash, Jamie O’Hara, Lannister, Vic Vendetta, Aren Mstislav, Y2Impact, Drastik, Tiberius Jones, and finally, The Heart Break Gal)
(The camera cuts to the Aaron Fitzpatrick in the ring with a microphone in hand as “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana plays all throughout the arena)
Deadprez: And here he comes! HBG is gonna regret ever accepting a match like this, I guarantee it! One of the most sadistic, vicious, hungry competitors we have EVER witnessed in this company’s history!
(Diamond Cage makes his way out to the stage, dressed in jeans, a sleeveless Diamond Cage “Explicit Content” t-shirt, and a dark leather jacket on, as he carries a barbed wire baseball bat)
Pierre: Unfortunately you’re right about that, and you can see just by the presence of that instrument of torture he’s bringing along with him that Cage has every intention of putting his opponent through absolute Hell in order to win tonight!
Deadprez: It’s what you gotta do! I’m not the biggest fan of the guy, but we all know you have to do what needs to be done to win, and that’s exactly his mindset! This is an Extreme Rules Match and he’s making great use out of that stipulation right off the bat! Pun intended!
(Diamond Cage enters the ring and practices swinging the barbed wire baseball bat as Fitzpatrick and the Referee back away from him. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” fades out)
Pierre: He was gifted that sadistic baseball bat by Brian Daniels months ago – we’ve seen it break bones and nearly end careers, and tonight may very well be no different if he has anything to say about it…
(“Square Hammer” by Ghost plays all throughout the arena as the Heart Break Gal makes her way out to the stage with a stoic expression behind her aviator sunglasses, wearing black attire along with a long black trench coat, with the EAW Championship around her waist)
Deadprez: The EAW Champ herself looks to have come prepared as well! Look at that, Pierre!
(The camera focuses on the right boot of the Heart Break Gal – wrapped in barbed wire)
Deadprez: Looks like Diamond Cage isn’t the only one coming into this looking to rip and tear apart their opponent! BOTH of them look to make good use out of that sharp barbed wire in their own ways!
Pierre: Heart Break Gal has never once made any qualms about doing whatever it is she has to do to win – to keep the EAW Championship around her waist! She’s been through Hell and back and she looks more then prepared to use any weapon to her advantage if that’s what it takes to walk out of tonight still Champion! She’s made believers out of everyone who’s crossed her path, and she aims for tonight to be absolutely no different!
(Heart Break Gal enters the ring, immediately taking off the EAW Championship and holding it up for Diamond Cage to see as they get face to face in the center of the ring)
Deadprez: Already a lot of hostility between these two! Better get some order here, Ref!
(The Referee steps in between both competitors, having them back into their respective corners as the lights dim while two spotlights appear on Heart Break Gal and Diamond Cage. Aaron Fitzpatrick steps into the center of the ring)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Fitzpatrick: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING… IT IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL… IT WILL BE CONTESTED UNDER EXTREME RULES…. AND IT IS FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING CHAMPIIIOOONNNSSHHHIIIPPP!!!….
(The crowd cheers as both competitors remain in their corners, staring down)
Fitzpatrick: First, in the corner to my left…. The challenger…. From Edmonton, Alberta, Canada!…. He weighed in tonight at 225 Pounds!…. THIS IS “EXPLICIT CONTENT” DIAMOND CAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEE!!!…..
(Diamond Cage holds up the barbed wire baseball bat in front of his face as the crowd cheers)
Fitzpatrick: And his opponent…. In the corner to my right…. From Dallas, Texas!…. She weighed in tonight at 135 Pounds!…. SHE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING ELITE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION…. SHE IS “THE CONSIGLIERE”….. THIS IS THE HEART! BREAK!! GAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!…..
(Heart Break Gal holds up the EAW Championship with both hands, keeping her eyes on Diamond Cage as the crowd cheers)
Pierre: A raging fire in the eyes of both competitors, I fear what these two are capable of doing in an environment like this!
(The lights return to normal as the Heart Break Gal hands the EAW Championship over to the Referee. The Referee shows HBG the EAW Championship, shows it to Diamond Cage, and finally holds it up for the crowd and hard camera to see. The Referee finally hands the Championship off to a worker at ringside before calling for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Pierre: This Extreme Rules content for the right to be EAW Champion is officially underway here, but neither competitor getting right to it just yet as they start off by circling the ring… Cage with a look of sadistic delight on his face, he doesn’t look intimidated in the slightest at that lethal weapon HBG has with that barbed wire around her right boot… Cage pointing at it with his barbed wire baseball bat, even laughing! Both competitors exchanging words with one another… HBG not backing down for even a second either! She knows exactly what Cage is capable of, but I don’t think she gives a damn!
Deadprez: Well I could step in front of a bus and show no fear, but that isn’t gonna change the result! That’s a bad example, actually, how about YOU step in front of a bus instead, Pierre…
Pierre: Cage looks absolutely thrilled to be here, or perhaps he’s thrilled at what he intends to do to HBG in this contest… Either way, he’s got a devilish grin on his face as he has his arms wide open, telling HBG to swing! He’s giving her a free shot! HBG’S NOT WASTING THE OPPORTUNITY AS SHE GOES FOR IT!
Deadprez: CAGE SWINGS QUICKER WITH HIS BARBED WIRE BAT!!
Pierre: HBG SAW IT COMING AS SHE DUCKS THAT BASEBALL BAT! CAGE TURNS AROUND! HBG SWINGS A RIGHT LEG INTO THE CHEST OF CAGE AS THE BARBED WIRE AROUND HER BOOT RIPS AT HIS T-SHIRT!! ANOTHER KICK CONNECTS! ANOTHER!! BLOOD SHOWING BEHIND THE TORN SHIRT OF CAGE ALREADY! CAGE DROPS HIS BAT AND DROPS TO HIS KNEES! HE’S IN PAIN! HBG SWINGS AGAIN WITH THAT BARBED WIRE-WRAPPED LEG!!
Deadprez: IT’S CAUGHT! CAGE CATCHES THE LEG! HE’S GOT IT TRAPPED UNDER HIS LEFT ARM AND JUST LOOK AT THE SADISTIC LOOK IN HIS EYES AS HE RISES BACK TO HIS FEET! THE BARBED WIRE AGAINST HIS FLESH AS HE HOLDS HBG’S LEG! DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP CONNECTS AS HBG IS DRIVEN INTO THE CANVAS! Cage is already bleeding in this content and it’s like it hasn’t even fazed him! Not in the slightest! This man’s pain threshold is boundless after all the wars he’s been through in EAW! However, HBG is far from being a stranger to these kind of environments as well! She’s scrambling to get back to her feet as Cage grabs that barbed wire baseball bat! THEY’RE BOTH UP! HBG SWINGS WITH A KICK TO THE SKULL WITH THAT RIGHT LEG AGAIN!!!
Pierre: NOBODY’S HOME AS CAGE DUCKS IT! HBG TURNS AROUND! HE DRIVES THAT BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT INTO THE MID-SECTION OF HBG!! HE GOT HER! HBG DOUBLES OVER IN PAIN! HE SWINGS THE BAT DOWN INTO THE SPINE OF HBG IMMEDIATELY!! IT GOT HER GOOD AS BLOOD STARTS TRICKLING DOWN THE BACK OF HBG AS SHE DROPS TO HER KNEES! HE’S NOT DONE! THIS SADISTIC MAN ISN’T FINISHED YET AS HE MOCKS HBG! HE PUTS THE BAT NEXT TO HER HEAD! DON’T DO IT! COME ON, CAGE!
Deadprez: HE SWINGS FOR THE FENCES, TARGETING THE HEAD OF HBG!!!!
Pierre: THE HEART BREAK GAL MANAGES TO DODGE IT AS SHE DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE UNDER THE ROPES! HBG just barely manages to save herself there! Diamond Cage didn’t even HESITATE to try to end her career there! Maybe even her life if that connected! He’s been scratching and clawing at chance to be EAW Champion again for four years now since it was taken away from him and we’re seeing just how desperate he is to make it his own again! HBG struggles to pull herself up! CAGE RUSHES IN! BASEBALL SLIDE CONNECT! HBG is sent crashing hard into the barricade on the outside! Blood still trickling down her back after taking that shot to the spine from that barbed wire bat! Cage doesn’t look like he’s done! Not by a long shot! HBG is doing her best to hold herself up against the barricade as Cage casually exits out to the apron… He’s still got that baseball bat in hand! HE LOOKS TO MAKE GOOD USE OF IT AS HE LEAPS OFF THE APRON!!
Deadprez: HBG dodges it! She rushes underneath the apron before Cage could catch her again with that baseball bat! Cage is having none of it as he pursues the Champion! HE CATCHES THE FOOT OF HBG! CAGE DRAGS HER OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE APRON! SHE’S GOT A FIRE EXTINGUISHER–HBG IMMEDIATELY SPRAYS THAT FIRE EXTINGUISHER IN THE FACE OF DIAMOND CAGE!! CAGE IS TEMPORARILY BLINDED AS HBG FORCES HERSELF TO GET BACK UP! Cage looks more pissed off than anything! HE’S GOT HIS BAT AS HE SWINGS! HE’S CAUGHT IN THE GUT WITH THAT FIRE EXTINGUISHER BY HBG! HBG NAILS HIM WITH THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER IN THE FACE AS CAGE DROPS THE BAT AND GOES REELING INTO THE STEEL STEPS! The Heart Break Gal looks every bit as sadistic as her opponent! She throws down the fire extinguisher and sizes up Cage! HBG STARTS PICKING UP MOMENTUM AS SHE CHARGES!! RUNNING LEG LARIAT!!!
Pierre: A DEVASTATING LEG LARIAT CONNECTS TO CAGE AS HE’S SENT FLIPPING OVER THE STEEL STEPS!!! HBG ONCE AGAIN UTILIZING THAT BARBED WIRE-WRAPPED BOOT OF HERS! Just like that – the blink of an eye – HBG has managed to turn this match around into her favor! Cage is the one being pursued! A lot of people believed she wouldn’t stand a chance in an environment like this where Diamond Cage thrives, but she’s more than accustomed to Extreme Rules as she now takes control of that baseball bat! She’s got a glimmer in her eyes! HBG loudly swings the barbed wire baseball bat into the steel steps as she prepares to use it on a more lively target! Diamond Cage is hurt! He’s doing all he can to get back up here! HE’S UP AS HBG RUSHES IN! SHE CONNECTS WITH THAT BASEBALL BAT AS SHE COLLIDES WITH IT TO THE FACE OF CAGE!! CAGE IS WRITHING IN PAIN ON THE MAT!! HE HAS TO BE BUSTED OPEN! HE HAS TO BE!
Deadprez: You can already see the blood dripping down his face as HBG looks to capitalize! She grabs a hold of Cage, dragging him up! HBG sends Cage rolling back into the ring! She’s abandoned that baseball bat and could be looking to simply end this right here and now! She would be wise to! Cage is hurt and hurt BAD! Take your opportunity and finish this! HBG slides back into the ring, stalking her opponent! Cage is busted open! He tried to block what he could of that incoming baseball bat, but it still got more than enough! HE’S UP! CAGE WOOZILY TURNS AROUND AS HBG RUSHES IN FOR THE KILL!! EVISCERATTIIIOONNN!!!!!!
Pierre: NO–HE IMMEDIATELY BRINGS HBG DOWN WITH A MODIFIED POWERBOMB AS HE’S GOT THE RIGHT LEG OF HER’S!! HE’S GOT THE LEG OF HBG AS SHE PANICS, TRYING TO ESCAPE!! DIAMOND CAGE–HE’S GOT IT!! FIGURE FOUR!!! DIAMOND CAGE WITH A FIGURE-FOUR LEG LOCK IN ON THE HEART BREAK GAL OUT OF NOWHERE!!! THE BARBED WIRE-WRAPPED RIGHT LEG OF HBG JUST BECAME A WEAPON AGAINST HER AS IT’S PRESSED AGAINST HER LEFT LEG IN THIS FIGURE FOUR!! SHE’S GOTTA DEAL WITH THE PRESSURE OF THE SUBMISSION AND THAT BARBED WIRE RIPPING AT HER LEFT LEG!! I CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO WONDER HOW MUCH PAIN SHE’S IN RIGHT NOW! CAGE HAS BLOOD RUNNING DOWN HIS FACE AND HE COULDN’T CARE LESS! HE’S FOCUSED ON NOTHING BUT PUTTING HIS OPPONENT THROUGH HELL! HBG IS WRITHING IN PAIN! SHE’S TRAPPED IN THIS HOLD! THE ROPES CAN’T EVEN SAVE HER HERE! SHE’S GOTTA THINK OF SOMETHING!
Deadprez: ALL IT TOOK WAS ONE MOMENT FOR CAGE TO TURN THIS WHOLE THING AROUND, AND WHAT A BRILLIANT COUNTER IT WAS! HBG IS IN AN UNFATHOMABLE AMOUNT OF PAIN! SHE’S PULLING AND CLAWING AT THE CANVAS, ATTEMPTING TO GET OUT OF THIS ANY WAY SHE CAN! SHE DOESN’T HAVE THE POWER TO FLIP IT OVER AND TURN THE FIGURE-FOUR AGAINST CAGE! HE WON’T LET HER! BLOOD RUNNING DOWN THE LEG OF HBG AS THE BARBED WIRE ON HER RIGHT BOOT SHREDS HER FLESH! BOTH SHOULDERS OF HBG DOWN AS THE REFEREE GOES IN TO COUNT IT!
Pierre: IT ONLY GARNERS A ONE COUNT AS THE EAW CHAMPION GETS A SHOULDER UP! SHE’S DESPERATE TO GET OUT OF THIS, BUT I DON’T SEE AN ENDING IN SIGHT! CAGE LITERALLY WILL NOT LET IT GO! NOT FOR ANYTHING! HBG IS USING EVERY OUNCE OF STRENGTH SHE HAS IN HER TO PULL HERSELF TOWARDS THE ROPES! CAGE DOES NOTHING BUT INCREASE THE PRESSURE ON THIS HOLD! THE TIDE HAS ENTIRELY TURNED AND WE MAY VERY WELL SEE THE END HERE! EVERYTHING HBG HAS WORKED TOWARDS SINCE COMING TO SHOWDOWN IS IN DANGER OF BEING TAKEN AWAY! YOU CAN JUST READ THE PAIN ON HER FACE! SHE NEEDS TO GET OUT OF THIS! HBG CLUTCHES THE BOTTOM ROPE!
Deadprez: IT’S NOT GONNA DO HER ANY GOOD! THERE’S NO ROPE BREAKS HERE! SHE’S SCREWED, PIERRE!
Pierre: HOLD ON–HBG’S USING THE ROPES TO DRAG HERSELF OUT OF THE RING! SHE’S USING EVERYTHING SHE HAS LEFT IN HER! CAGE CAN’T WIN THIS OUTSIDE THE RING AND SHE KNOWS IT! CAGE IS TRYING TO PULL HER BACK, BUT SHE’S NOT HAVING IT! THEY BOTH DROP TO THE OUTSIDE AS CAGE KEEPS THIS HOLD LOCKED IN! HE’S NOT STOPPING, EVEN IF HE CAN’T WIN WITH IT ON THE OUTSIDE! HBG REACHES OVER, GRABBING THAT BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT! SHE’S GOT IT! HBG DRIVES THAT BASEBALL BAT INTO THE FACE OF CAGE!!
Deadprez: NO–IT’S CAUGHT! Cage catches it! He won’t let her nail him with it a second time! Cage breaks the Figure-Four as both competitors are jockeying for control! The left leg of HBG bleeding as she struggles to fight for control of this baseball bat against Cage! Both competitors looking to make it their own! Both of them rising to their feet! HBG is too damaged from that submission! She’s quickly losing control! CAGE IS GONNA GRIND THAT BARBED WIRE AGAINST THE FACE OF HBG!!
Pierre: THE HEART BREAK GAL WITH A KICK TO THE GROIN OF DIAMOND CAGE!!! OUT OF DESPERATION HBG DOES WHAT SHE HAD TO DO TO STOP CAGE AS HE DROPS DOWN TO HIS KNEES IN PAIN! SHE SAID SHE WOULD DO ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING IT TOOK TO WIN THIS EXTREME RULES MATCH, AND SHE’S DOING JUST THAT! SHE’S GOT CONTROL OF THAT BASEBALL BAT! SHE LOOKS TO PUT IT TO GOOD USE! THE HEART BREAK GAL–
Deadprez: DIAMOND CAGE FORCES HIMSELF UP BEFORE SHE CAN USE IT AS HE SLAMS INTO HER, PICKING HER UP!! MORE MOMENTUM–THEY CRASH THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!!! DIAMOND CAGE SENDS HIMSELF AND HBG CRASHING THROUGH A PART OF THE BARRICADE OUT OF THE DAMN BLUE!!! DIAMOND CAGE WITH A MOVE OUT OF DESPERATION OF HIS OWN!! Both competitors are laid out as the crowd surrounds them! What an absolute WAR this has been! More than I ever expected! These two are just destroying one another every single opportunity they get, and this crowd is loving every second of it! Many thought HBG wouldn’t be able to keep up with someone as sadistic as Diamond Cage, but she’s managed to hold her own! Cage now showing signs of life here as he grabs a nearby fan to help himself up! Blood still running down his face after taking that hit from that baseball bat earlier!
Pierre: Diamond Cage stumbles to his feet, almost looking more happy than anything! I think he’s actually enjoying this, especially when he’s the one in control! He’s had an answer for everything HBG has been able to throw at him, and then some! He turns his attention back to HBG, saying something as he makes his way over to her! HBG doing all she can to get back up, but she’ll have some help from Cage as he clutches her hair! Cage dragging her up! He’s got a hold of her face, looking down at her, berating the Champion! CAGE WITH A SLAP ACROSS THE FACE OF HBG! ANOTHER HARD SLAP TO THE FACE OF HBG, JUST DISRESPECTING THE CHAMPION!
Cage (no mic): LOOK AT ME! YOU DON’T BELONG HERE! MY CHAMPIONSHIP! IT’S MINE!
Deadprez: Cage pushes HBG away as she struggles to stay on her feet! HE GRABS A NEARBY CHAIR!! CAGE–
Pierre: TRAMP STAMP!!! HBG CATCHES HIM WITH THAT SUPERKICK OUT OF NOWHERE AS CAGE GOES STUMBLING INTO A NEARBY UNOCCUPIED CHAIR! HE LOOKS OUT OF IT! HBG COMES CHARGING WITH ALL SHE’S GOT!! FLYING FOREARM TO A SEATED CAGE!!! WHAT A TURNAROUND FOR THE HEART BREAK GAL! THE CHAMPION IS STILL ALIVE AND KICKING HERE! THIS CROWD IS FIRMLY AT HER BACK EVERY STEP OF THE WAY! SHE’S TAKING THOSE WORDS OF CAGE TO HEART AS SHE FORCES HERSELF BACK UP! This capacity EAW crowd is loving every damn second of it as she grabs a nearby chair, folding it up! Diamond Cage is doing everything he can to get back up! He didn’t anticipate she still had anything left! CAGE IS UP! HBG THROWS THAT CHAIR STRAIGHT INTO THE FACE OF HER OPPONENT! CAGE IS WOOZY!

HBG is in an insurmountable amount of pain here as Cage chokes her with that shirt, pulling her up!! She’s clawing at his eyes, doing anything she can to get away! CAGE SENDS HBG FLYING FORWARD AND INTO SEVERAL MORE CHAIRS IN THE CROWD!! HE IS ABSOLUTELY PUNISHING THE HEART BREAK GAL!! HBG is barely able to move! Cage looks like he’d love to end this right here and now! He grabs a chair, unfolding it and setting it up! He’s got the hair of HBG, pulling her up once more, and navigating her over to that chair! I don’t like the looks of this! Not one bit! CAGE IS SETTING HER UP!! HE’S GOT HER OVER THE CHAIR!! HE’S LOOKING FOR A PILEDRIVER RIGHT THROUGH THE SEAT!! HBG IS FIGHTING IT! SHE’S FIGHTING WITH ALL SHE’S GOT LEFT! HBG GETS AWAY FROM HIS GRASP, REELING INTO THE BARRICADE! CAGE LEAPS FROM THE SEAT OF THAT CHAIR FOR DIVING ELBOW TO HBG AS THEY BOTH GO BACK OVER THE BARRICADE!!!
Deadprez: Diamond Cage looks that much more like a lunatic with that crimson mask he’s wearing! He’s lost his damn mind as he looks more than delighted at what he’s done to his opponent in this contest! HBG is at his mercy here and he knows it! He thrives off of this! Cage starts pulling himself back up on the mat as this crowd looks on! He’s lost his shirt and he’s been busted open and all it’s done is make him look that much more psychotic! He grabs HBG, dragging her up again! HBG’s still trying to fight back! SHE NAILS CAGE WITH A FOREARM! ANOTHER FOREARM! CAGE STOPS HER WITH A BACKHAND SLAP TO THE FACE! ANOTHER! ANOTHER!

HE’S TRYING TO KEEP HER IN THIS VERTICAL SUPLEX POSITION! A THIRD KNEE DOWN INTO THE SKULL OF CAGE! HBG ESCAPES IT AS SHE DROPS BACK DOWN TO HER FEET! NO–CAGE HAS A GRASP ON HER WRIST AS HE PULLS HER IN FOR ANOTHER DECAPITATING LARIAT!!! HE’S NOT LETTING HER GET AWAY! HE’S NOT LETTING THIS CHANCE TO BE EAW CHAMPION AGAIN SLIP AWAY! HE REFUSES! HE’S STILL CLUTCHING THE WRIST OF HBG AS HE DRAGS HER BACK UP!! HE PULLS HER IN FOR ANOTHER DEVASTATING LARIAT!!! HBG LOOKS OUT OF IT! SHE CAN BARELY MOVE BY THIS POINT! DIAMOND CAGE ISN’T FINISHED! NOT YET! He goes straight to that barbed wire-wrapped boot of HBG! He’s ripping at it!
Pierre: Cage is actually pulling off the barbed wire from that boot! I don’t like this! He could have just ended it there, but he looks more angry than anything! He looks like he wants to punish HBG for trying to stop him! HE’S GOT THAT BARBED WIRE OFF THE BOOT OF HBG! AND HE JUST WHIPS HER WITH IT!! THIS SICK, SADISTIC HUMAN BEING JUST TAKING GREAT PLEASURE IN TORTURING THE EAW CHAMPION AS HE WHIPS HBG WITH THAT BARBED WIRE A SECOND TIME!! HBG IS DOING LITERALLY ANYTHING SHE CAN TO ESCAPE THIS ASSAULT, BUT HE’S NOT GONNA LET IT HAPPEN! CAGE WHIPS THE BACK OF HBG WITH THAT BARBED WIRE THIS TIME! HE WHIPS HER WITH IT AGAIN!!!

CAGE CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! HE ABSOLUTELY CAN’T BELIEVE IT AS HE WRITHES IN PAIN, TRYING EVERYTHING TO GET OUT OF THIS!! CAGE LOOKS LIKE A COYOTE TRYING TO GNAW HIS OWN ARM OFF HERE, HE’S LITERALLY DOING ANYTHING HE CAN TO GET OUT OF THIS ARMBAR!! HBG LOOKS LIKE SHE’S WILLING TO SNAP HIS ARM IF THAT’S WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN THIS! CAGE CAN’T DO ANYTHING! HBG REFUSES TO LET HIM TAKE BACK CONTROL! SHE FOUND A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY HERE AND SHE’S MAKING USE OF EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF IT!! CAGE IS IN AN EXCRUCIATING AMOUNT OF PAIN!!
Pierre: CAGE IS USING EVERY OUNCE OF STRENGTH HE HAS LEFT IN HIM HERE! HE’S TRYING TO PICK HER UP! HE’S LOST A GREAT DEAL OF BLOOD AND TAKEN A LOT OF DAMAGE, BUT HE REFUSES TO STOP HERE! HE’S COME SO FAR AND ABSOLUTELY REFUSES TO LET IT END LIKE THIS! DIAMOND CAGE FORCES HIMSELF UP, PICKING UP THE ENTIRE 135 POUNDS OF THE HEART BREAK GAL WITH HIM! HE’S LIFTING HER UP WITH ALL HE’S GOT… HE’S GOT HER!! CAGE STARTS CHARGING FORWARD!!! TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB!!!!
Deadprez: HEART BREAK GAL TURNS IT INTO A HURRICANRANA!!! CAGE GOES CRASHING STRAIGHT INTO THE RINGPOST WITH GREAT VELOCITY BEFORE DROPPING TO THE OUTSIDE!! I can’t believe HBG managed to turn this around the way she has! Diamond Cage has lost his momentum entirely here! I have to give credit where it’s due – HBG has managed to keep up with him every step of the way thus far! She had a greater tolerance to this punishment than I could have ever imagined, but she hasn’t won this yet! She still has something to prove as HBG forces herself back up in the ring! She’s got her sights locked in on Cage as he struggles to pull himself up! Cage clutches the apron, pulling himself up… HBG COMES CHARGING IN! Baseball slide connects!! Cage is sent crashing hard into the edge of our table! Watch it! Go over to the Spanish one, damn it!
Pierre: HBG exits out to the apron! She sees a perfect chance to capitalize! Cage is hurt! He’s in pain! All the damage he’s taken may have finally caught up to him! HBG PICKS UP THE PACE AS SHE RUSHES AND LEAPS OFF THE APRON!! ARROWVERSE!!!
Deadprez: SHE’S CAUGHT! CAGE STOPS IT AS HE CATCHES HBG!! THAT DIVING HURRICANRANA IS NO GOOD AS HE STOPS HBG’S BODY AND NOW USING HIS STRENGTH TO PULL HER BACK UP! HE’S GOT HER ON HIS SHOULDERS!! POWERBOMB TO OUR TABLE!!!!
Pierre: HBG’S FIGHTING IT WITH MULTIPLE CLOSED-FIST SHOTS! HBG IS UNLOADING WITH THOSE HARD RIGHT HANDS TO THE SKULL OF CAGE!! CAGE IS STARTING TO FALTER! HE’S BACKING UP TO THE APRON!! HBG LAYS INTO HIM! She escapes from his grasp and gets onto the apron! CAGE WON’T LET HER GO JUST YET AS HE GRABS HER FOOT!! HBG TRYING TO GET HIM AWAY! SHE FORCES HIM OFF! CAGE IS RIGHT BACK AT IT AS HE COMES BACK IN WHILE HBG TURNS AROUND! A LOUD KICK TO THE FACE OF CAGE FROM HBG!! CAGE IS SENT REELING INTO OUR TABLE!! HBG TURNS AROUND! SHE LEAPS TO THE SECOND ROPE–LOOK OUT!!!
(The Heart Break Gal connects with a Springboard Moonsault onto Diamond Cage through the Showdown Announce Table as Pierre McGuire and Deadprez scramble out of the way)
Deadprez: JESUS–OUR TABLE HAS BEEN SHATTERED AS HBG JUST CAME CRASHING DOWN ONTO CAGE!!! THEY’VE ABSOLUTELY TORN EACH OTHER APART! I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW FAR THEY’VE BEEN WILLING TO GO!! THE REFEREE RUSHES OUT, CHECKING ON BOTH COMPETITORS! HBG seems to be the only one showing any signs of life here! HBG with a look of fierce determination in her eyes! She keeps going! She won’t stop here! She wants to walk out of this contest STILL EAW Champion by any means necessary! She has a perfect chance to finish this if she can just keep it up!

HBG sits up visibly thinking of what else she could do to put him away! HBG immediately rolls to the outside… She’s looking under the apron! She’s looking for more instruments of torture to use here! She throws a chair into the ring! Another chair! A THIRD chair goes sailing into the ring! She throws in a trashcan filled with weapons now! HOLD ON! SHE’S GOT A TABLE IN HAND! SHE SLIDES THAT IN AS WELL!! Wait… SHE’S NOT DONE YET! HBG PULLS OUT A BAG OF WHO KNOWS WHAT! SHE’S GOT SOMETHING BAD IN MIND HERE!

(“Square Hammer” by Ghost plays all throughout the arena as both the Heart Break Gal and Diamond Cage remain motionless on the canvas)
Fitzpatrick: THE WINNER OF THIS CONTEST BY PINFALL….. AND STTTTTTIIIIIIIILLLLLLLL ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WORLD CHAMPIOOONNNN….. THE HEART! BREAK!! GAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL!!!!
Pierre: I don’t know what the Hell Devan Dubian thought he was doing by intervening in this match, but he may have just cost Diamond Cage the EAW Championship tonight! These two competitors just went through an absolute WAR and he spat on all of it!
(Devan Dubian looks on from the outside with a smirk on his face)
Deadprez: Hey, it wasn’t illegal! Cage is the one who wanted this to be Extreme Rules, and he just paid for it! The Heart Break Gal benefited from it, sure, but she also did everything needed to win when it comes down to it! She capitalized while Cage was focused on getting revenge, and THAT is why she’s still EAW Champion!
(Cameron Ella Ava and Tarah Nova make their way down to the ring as the Referee checks on the Heart Break Gal and Diamond Cage)
Pierre: Well despite Dubian’s interference, you can’t take away the blood, sweat, and tears these two just left in the ring! “Battle Without Honor or Humanity” doesn’t even begin to describe the war HBG and Diamond Cage just went through! They left it all on the line just for the chance to be EAW Champion!
(A battered, bloody, and thumbtack-covered Heart Break Gal is helped up by Cameron Ella Ava and Tarah Nova as the Referee hands her the EAW Championship)
Deadprez: What a night it’s been, especially for the even stronger Di Consentes! Diamond Cage gave it his absolute ALL tonight, but just came up short in the end, regardless of any interference that may have occurred!
Pierre: MAY have occurred?
Deadprez: The point is, Heart Break Gal is still EAW Champion and still your Queen! She pulls it off once again in another classic, proving yet again why she’s the absolute best in EAW! As for Cage, I can’t even begin to imagine what he’s gonna do after what just happened out there!
Pierre: It’s been a monumental night, and I can’t think of a better way to cap it off than with a bloody, brutal, hellacious battle unlike any other between two of the best in EAW! Diamond Cage certainly isn’t finished here, but tonight belongs to the Heart Break Gal as she still reigns as EAW Champion! Thank you for joining us on this wonderful night as we head our way towards the Grand Rampage! I can’t even imagine what lies in store! Signing off for Deadprez, I’m Pierre McGuire, and we’ll see you next week on Showdown! Thank you and goodnight!
(The Heart Break Gal holds up the EAW Championship as she celebrates with Cameron Ella Ava and Tarah Nova while a furious and damaged Diamond Cage sits outside the ring before the camera fades to black)
