(EAW Intro plays…)
(Dynasty Intro plays…)
(“Rise” by Sixx A.M. plays in the background with the camera fading into the Barclays Center, the Brooklyn crowd shooting up to their feet in adulation for the beginning of the show, as the camera turns over towards the stage to showcase the pyrotechnics blasting all across it before it finally pans down to our resident commentators.)
Stew-O: WELCOME EVERYONE TO A NIGHT WHERE DYNASTY HAS TAKEN OVER A SOLD-OUT BARCLAYS CENTER IN BROOKLYN, PACKED WITH 15,671 RABID DYNASTY FANS, READY TO SEE THE ACTION THAT WE HAVE IN STORE TONIGHT! WELCOME TO BURNING DESIRE AND OUR MAIN EVENT TONIGHT, IT’S ALL ABOUT THAT FROM THE CITY THAT REPRESENTS IT!
Jake Mercer: I can’t help but agree with you on that statement, Stew, because our main event tonight will host the EAW World Heavyweight Champion Jamie O’Hara defending his title against a man that has the full support of the fans all across the globe, TLA! Both of these men showcase that passion and drive to be the very best on Dynasty and the winner of tonight will not only do that, but will make their path to Pain for Pride X recognized as such!
Stew-O: Speaking of Pain for Pride X moments however, Jake, let’s not forget that we have multiple matches that hold the same thread on tonight’s card! The Extreme Enigma Elimination Qualifying Match that has a plethora of elitists that would represent Dynasty with prestige, Jacob Senn and Moongoose McQueen fighting among one another for who will earn a title match against Mr. DEDEDE, and the EAW New Breed Championship Match for who will represent the New Breed into Pain for Pride X!
Jake Mercer: Absolutely right, Stew! However, our first match might be the most important of those matches because it could very well decide what will be the main attraction for Dynasty at Pain for Pride X! Instead of us speaking all about it, let’s just take it to the ring AND GET THE ACTION STARTED!
(The camera cuts to the ring announcer and referee standing inside of the ring together, prepared for the upcoming match.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, this first contest is scheduled for ONE FALL… AND IT IS FOR THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDERSHIP MATCH FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!
(“Root of all Evil” by CFO$ hits as Tig Kelly makes his way through the curtain to a THUNDEROUS pop.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first from Galway, Ireland, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND TWELVE POUNDS!! TIIIIIIIIIIIIG KEEEELLLLLLLLYYYYYY!!!
Mercer: AND WHAT A WAY TO KICK THIS SHOW OFF! XAVIER WILLIAMS AGAINST THIS MAN, TIG KELLY WITH AN OPPORTUNITY AT THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE!
Stew: The man made his return a few weeks ago at the expense of the man that he’s going to face tonight. This is his opportunity to reaffirm his position at the top of the roster; he’s kicked the door down with an impressive victory over Diamond Cage in his return match, but tonight he’s in the ring with a different kind of monster.
(Tig enters the ring and makes his way to the middle of the ring, taking a seat cross legged with his eyes locked up the ramp waiting for Xavier to make his entrance.)
(“Last Kings” by Tupac ft. Eminem hits as Xavier Williams slowly makes his way through the curtain; he stands on the stage looking straight down at Tig who still sits in the ring as the hint of a smile crosses his face.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in tonight at TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY NINE POUNDS!! XAAAAVVIEEEERRR WIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLIIIIIAAAAAMMMMSSSSS!!!
Stew: From the words of Sebastian Monroe; this is Xavier’s last opportunity to earn one last chance at the World Heavyweight Championship. Twice the man has fallen short throughout the last few months. Jamie O’Hara interfering in that Barbed Wire Steel Cage match to cost the man the title when he had it won; he wasn’t pinned at Grand Rampage in the Triple Threat also involving the former champion, Jacob Senn.
Mercer: None of those things matter because the man isn’t the World Heavyweight Champion. Would have, could have and should have means nothing in this business. This business is about results, and when it has mattered the most, Xavier hasn’t been able to provide those results — WAIT A MINUTE!! TIG KELLY!!
Stew: TIG KELLY SHOOTING BACK TO HIS FEET AND FLIES THROUGH THE ROPES WITH A TOPE SUICIDA THE MOMENT THAT XAVIER WILLIAMS REACHED THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP! TIG ISN’T WAITING FOR THE REFEREE TO START THE MATCH! XAVIER STUMBLING BACK TO HIS FEET AND TIG FIRES WITH A VICIOUS EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! A SHOOT KICK TO THE CHEST! A JUMPING KNEE! XAVIER DROPPING DOWN TO A KNEE — AND TIG KELLY ALMOST TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH A STANDING BICYCLE KICK! XAVIER SENT DOWN TO THE GROUND, BUT IS ALREADY PUSHING HIMSELF BACK TO HIS FEET! TIG LIKE A SHARK THAT SMELLS BLOOD, STALKING XAVIER! XAVIER’S UP! AND – AND TIG KELLY DRIVES BOTH FEET INTO THE CHEST OF XAVIER WILLIAMS AND SENDS HIS CRASHING BACK SPINE FIRST INTO THOSE UNFORGIVING STEEL STEPS! THE BACK OF THE HEAD CRACKING BACK AGAINST THE STEEL!
Mercer: XAVIER CLUTCHING AT THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AS THE REFEREE PUSHES TIG BACK AND CHECKS ON THE DOWNED XAVIER! TIG DOESN’T WANT TO STAY BACK, HE HAS XAVIER WHERE HE WANTS HIM AND THE MATCH HASN’T EVEN STARTED YET! TIG PUSHES THE REFEREE AWAY AND DRAGS XAVIER BACK TO HIS FEET AND ROLLS HIM BACK INTO THE RING! MEET THE ENDER, XAVIER! MEET YOUR ENDER! TIG ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING AND DEMANDS THAT THE REFEREE CALLS FOR THE BELL! XAVIER WILLIAMS STRUGGLING TO PUSH HIMSELF BACK TO HIS FEET! THE REFEREE DOESN’T WANT TO DO IT AS TIG COCKS HIS FIST! THE REFEREE DOESN’T WANT TO DO IT…
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: THE REFEREE CALLS FOR THE BELL AS TIG GRABS XAVIER AND LOCKS THE WRIST! TIG’S ABOUT TO KNOCK HIS TEETH DOWN HIS THROAT! TIG DRAGGING XAVIER BACK TO HIS FEET! RIPCORD BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE!! NO!! NO!! XAVIER — END OF THE WORLD?! XAVIER COUNTERED WITH THAT POP UP POWERBOMB!! TIG KELLY DRIVEN EMPHATICALLY INTO THE CANVAS!! XAVIER JUST STANDING OVER TIG KELLY, BUT DOESN’T GO FOR THE COVER! XAVIER MAKING HIS WAY ONTO THE APRON AND MAKES HIS WAY UP TO THE TOP ROPE! TIG HASN’T MOVED SINCE THAT END OF THE WORLD!! XAVIER STEADYING HIMSELF… FROGSPLASH! XAVIER WILLIAMS CRUSHING TIG KELLY INTO THE CANVAS WITH A FROGSPLASH! XAVIER WILLIAMS HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!
ONE!! TWO!! THREE-KICKOUT!!
Mercer: TIG KICKS OUT! TIG KICKS OUT! THE END OF THE WORLD AND THE FROGSPLASH WASN’T ENOUGH TO KEEP THE ENDER DOWN! XAVIER JUST SITTING THERE!! THIS MATCH IS STILL IN THE OPENING MOMENTS, BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS IS IN COMPLETE SHOCK!! XAVIER GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET AND POWERS TIG BACK UP TO HIS OWN! XAVIER’S PULLS HIM IN… AND HE’S LOOKING TO PUT THE FINAL NAIL INTO THE COFFIN! XAVIER HOOKING THE ARMS OF TIG! XAVIER’S LOOKING TO END TIG’S NIGHT WITH THAT PACKAGE PILEDRIVER! BUT, TIG HOOKS HIS LEGS AROUND THE HEAD OF XAVIER AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A FRANKENSTEINER! XAVIER ROLLING THROUGH AND SHOOTS BACK TO HIS FEET! TIG’S BACK TO HIS, BUT HE’S A STEP BEHIND! XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH A LARIAT! NO, TIG DUCKS UNDERNEATH AND HOOKS THE WRIST AGAIN! RIPCORD BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! THIS TIME IT CONNECTS! XAVIER DROPS DOWN TO A KNEE AS TIG KEEPS A HOLD OF THAT WRIST! TIG HOOKS HIM AGAIN! ANOTHER RIPCORD BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE! XAVIER FALLS INTO THE ARM OF TIG, BUT TIG STILL ISN’T FINISHED! TIG STILL HAS THAT WRIST LOCKED! TIG HOOKS HIM FOR A THIRD TIME! TIG PUSHES HIM AWAY — AND CONNECTS FLUSH WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE HEAD! THE POWER BEHIND THE BLOW SWINGING XAVIER AROUND!
Stew: BACKSTABBER! OH MY GOD!! OH MY GOD!! THE IRISH GOODBYE!! REAR NAKED CHOKE!! REAR NAKED CHOKE!! XAVIER’S TRAPPED ON HIS STOMACH AND TIG REARS BACK ON THE THROAT!! YOU DON’T LAST LONG IN A CHOKE WITH THAT MUCH PRESSURE!! XAVIER NEEDS TO FIND A WAY OUT AND FIND A WAY OUT OF IT QUICK!! XAVIER POWERS HIMSELF BACK UP TO HIS HANDS AND KNEES AS TIG WRAPS HIS LEGS AROUND THE WAIST!! THE ARMS OF XAVIER ARE GROWER WEAKER AND WEAKER BY THE SECOND!! TIG KELLY MAY BE ABOUT TO SET A DATE WITH THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!! NO!! NO!! XAVIER POWERS HIMSELF BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND SENDS BOTH HIM AND TIG INTO THE CORNER WITH THE CANNONBALL SENTON!! THAT’S THE SAME COUNTER THAT XAVIER USED ON METHUSELAH AT KING OF ELITE!! TIG’S SPINE JARRING IN PAIN AS XAVIER STUMBLES BACK TO HIS FEET!! TIG’S BACK TO HIS OWN — SUPERKICK!! XAVIER CONNECTS FLUSH OF THE JAW WITH A SUPERKICK!! TIG FALLING INTO THE ROPES AND STUMBLES BACK FORWARD!! ANOTHER SUPERKICK!! TIG FALLS BACK, BUT XAVIER LATCHES ONTO THE ARM AND KEEPS HIM STANDING!! XAVIER LAUNCHES HIM INTO THE ROPES!! END OF THE WORLD!! NO!! JESUS CHRIST!! TIG COUNTERED WITH A FLIP PILEDRIVER!! XAVIER WILLIAMS SPIKED ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD!!
Mercer: THAT WAS SICK!! THE MOMENTUM WHIPPING XAVIER BACK TO HIS FEET AS TIG SHOOT BACK TO HIS OWN!! XAVIER SWINGS FOR A WILD CLOTHESLINE, BUT TIG DUCKS UNDERNEATH AND LOCKS THE WAIST! SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX!! XAVIER DROPPED ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD AGAIN!! XAVIER STUMBLING BACK TO HIS FEET AGAIN, LATCHING ONTO THE TOP ROPE!! TIG LOOKING TO SEND HIM OVER THE TOP, BUT XAVIER DROPS DOWN AND USES THE MOMENTUM TO SEND TIG UP AND OVER!! TIG CATCHES HIMSELF ON THE APRON!! XAVIER TURNS… STRAIGHT INTO A ROUNDHOUSE!!

ONE!! TWO!! THREE!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: XAVIER WILLIAMS HAS BOOKED HIMSELF A DATE WITH THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!
(“Last Kings” by Tupac ft. Eminem hits as Xavier just rolls of Tig and painfully sits up.)
Mercer: It was action packed for the get go; they beat the absolute living hell out of each other for the time that it lasted, but Xavier Williams with a magnificent counter into that Package Piledriver put an end to the night of The Ender.
Stew: Xavier’s going to be watching intently during out main event tonight between Jamie O’Hara and TLA for the World Heavyweight Championship! What a start to Burning Desire tonight, folks! We have plenty more on the way!
(Xavier rolls under the bottom rope and begins to make his way back up the ramp without celebrating. Xavier stands on the stage and looks back down to the ring as Tig slowly recovers before heading to the back.)
(A loud roar is heard all throughout the arena)
(“Bloodlust” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as Ares Vendetta drags a trashcan out to the stage, flanked by Jaywalker in a hooded blue and white robe)
Stew: What on Earth? What are these two doing here?
Mercer: Who cares, Stew? We should just be thankful they’ve decided to make an appearance! This show just got THAT much better.
Stew: Ares and Jaywalker have always been shrouded in controversy, but even moreso lately after their brutal assault on Devan Dubian and the Heart Break Boy at the Grand Rampage, and just last week at Resurrection V, they were confronted by not only a returning Heart Break Boy, but a returning CM Banks as well.
Mercer: And what a despicable thing that was too! A three on two assault? That’s not even fair.
Stew: I don’t think these two men even have “fair” in their vocabularies…
(Ares places the trashcan in the center of the ring as Jaywalker enters before both men are handed microphones while “Bloodlust” fades out)
Jaywalker: It’s been too long, Dynasty, but tonight, the original Dynast has returned.
(The crowd boos)
Jaywalker: I have no doubt that many of you are confused as to why Ares and I are here tonight, but it’ll be made crystal clear for you soon enough.
Ares: We could make it simple and say that there happens to be a war going on, and in a war, there is no place truly off limits. Everywhere is a battlefield. It’s not a war Jaywalker and I asked for – we’re more accustomed to simply conquering and taking what we want, but there’s certain mongrels out there that don’t know when to stay down. The ones that cling to pride more than sense. Even when they’ve been beaten down and broken, they absolutely refuse to let it end there and they let you people’s cheering fuel them to get back up and continue fighting, and for what? What’s the point? What value is there in starting a war with the likes of us? They don’t seem to comprehend what a war entails. People like us thrive in a war. We thrive on a battlefield, where anything and everything goes. Where playing by the rules come second to doing whatever it takes to hurt those that oppose you. It’s so futile, but that’s the path they chose.
Stew: These guys are so full of it…
Mercer: Shh, Stew!
Jaywalker: And to top it off, now they’ve gotten a man involved that I foolishly once looked up to. Moments like that last week are prime examples as to why I chose to be better than those I looked up to ever were, and in every way. While Banks was rotting away in a retirement home for five years, I continued to thrive and and blaze a trail for people in not just this company, but this entire industry. And he decides to just show up on a whim and get in MY way? During those five years he was long gone, I breathed life into something you all came to know as the Hall of Fame Championship – a belt created to showcase everything Jaywalker is about. I’m not just some mere agent of chaos. I haven’t done anything without a reason for it, and what I’ve done was to take back what belongs to me. I wanted the Championship I created. Right now, I would be the official EAW Hall of Fame Champion once more if the Heart Break Boy had been smart enough to stay home and let his injuries fully heal, but he just couldn’t do that. Instead he stuck his nose back into my business and caused a No Contest that should have been a Disqualification on his part the moment he attacked me.
Ares: And so here we are. As expected, Dubian and his friends are looking for us in the wrong place. I’m sure they thought we’d sit around and wait for them to call us out and we’d all clash and they’d overcome us in a two on three battle and finally take back the precious Hall of Fame Championship, but much like all heroic stories, it’s just a fairy tale. The moment Jaywalker and I allied together, I told him what seeking out vengeance could give him, and I was proven right the moment we punished the Heart Break Boy and Devan Dubian for making a mockery of his Hall of Fame Championship. If either of those mongrels believed for even one second that this would play out the way they hoped, they were sorely mistaken. Like we said, anything and everything goes in a war, and last week, they made this a war. There isn’t going to come a day when they prevail and take the Hall of Fame Championship back.
(Jaywalker opens his robe to reveal the Hall of Fame Championship around his waist before he takes it off, looking at it)
Ares: They showed how dedicated they are to their cause. I believe it’s time to show them how dedicated we are. Besides, what’s a show named “Burning Desire” without a fire?
(Ares Vendetta pulls a can of gasoline out of the trashcan before Jaywalker tosses the Hall of Fame Championship into the trashcan)
Stew: Hold on! What are they doing?! You can’t be serious! No!
(Ares starts pouring gasoline into the trashcan as the shocked crowd begins to stir and boo)
Mercer: I can’t believe it! These guys know no limits!
Stew: This is disgusting! Somebody stop this!
(Ares drops the can of gasoline before pulling out matches)
Jaywalker: Banks, Devan, and HBB all seem to not understand. If I can’t be the Hall of Fame Champion, nobody can. I created it, and I will kill it.
(Ares lights a match and drops it into the trashcan as it ignites with flames)
Stew: THEY JUST SET THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONSHIP ABLAZE! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! THEY CAN’T DO THIS!
Mercer: THEY JUST DID, STEW! THESE GUYS ABSOLUTELY DO NOT CARE! NOT ONE BIT!
Stew: THEY’RE WILLING TO GO THIS FAR?! THEY’RE WILLING TO DESTROY THE HALL OF FAME CHAMPIONSHIP ITSELF JUST TO AVOID HAVING TO GIVE IT BACK UP TO DEVAN DUBIAN?! THESE GUYS ARE OUT OF THEIR DAMN MINDS!
Mercer: I think they just declared war of their own on Banks, Dubian, and HBB! They just made a HELL of a statement here tonight at Burning Desire, and a perfect place to do it as well with no sign of the people in pursuit of them in sight! They know exactly what they’re doing!
(“Play For Keeps” by BoB plays all throughout the arena as Jaywalker and Ares take their leave while the trashcan continues to burn)
Stew: An absolutely disgusting display from these two men, and I can’t even imagine what’s going through the mind of the Hall of Fame Champion himself, Devan Dubian!
Mercer: I’m not so sure he’s even the Hall of Fame Champion anymore, Stew! I think they just eradicated the damn thing entirely!
Jake Mercer: Well, we’re going to have to break away from that as the referees and in-ring staff try to get rid of this trashcan and the ashes of the EAW Hall of Fame Championship that reside inside of it, because I’ve just been told by the crew backstage that we have a match coming up RIGHT NOW!
Ring Announcer: The following contest is set for one fall… AND IT IS FOR THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!
(“Voltage” by Yonosuke Kitamura hits to a huge pop from the crowd, as Anthony Leonhart steps out to the stage, looking up with focus and determination, before walking down to the ring. Leonhart gestures a title belt around his waist, signalling that the title will be his.)
Stew-O: The New Breed division may arguably be at a new peak! Leonhart, Lucas Johnson, and Mark Michaels have all been here for more than a year now, vying at a chance for the New Breed Championship throughout their tenure; then in March, Lucas Johnson finally conquered this division and won the championship, holding it since then; he’s had some impressive defenses with that title!
Mercer: Yup! That’s my boy, Lucas Johnson, the obvious favorite to win this match. Let’s be real, just who exactly do Anthony Leonhart and Mark Michaels think they are stepping up to the EAW New Breed Champion like that? They’re outclassed! They’re outpowered! They’re nothing compared to the champion. Anthony Leonhart is going to realize that his excursion to Japan and his “triumphant” return to the EAW are going to be cut short by the king of the New Breed, Lucas Johnson!
(“Despacito” by Luis Fonsi hits to a mixed, mostly negative crowd reaction. Mark Michaels saunters out to the stage with gold and black zebra striped attire, his phone held high in the air. Michaels walks by the barricade, turning to take a selfie with the crowd which gets him a pop, only to turn and snap one of himself, flipping the crowd off! Michaels soaks in the heat as he enters the ring and sits himself on the turnbuckles.)
Stew-O: I’m sure you have some more partisanship towards Mark Michaels, despite your disdain for Anthony Leonhart and clear love for the champ!
Mercer: Well, I guess Mark Michaels winning wouldn’t be as bad as Anthony Leonhart… Still. I respect Mark for stepping up to Lucas Johnson after picking up an impressive streak of wins, but I will say this; Mark Michaels is a top class talent in the New Breed division, but I just don’t think he has what it takes to end Lucas Johnson’s reign here tonight!
(“Pain” by CFO$ echoes throughout the arena and a lone spotlight shines on the stage. Lucas Johnson steps out, roaring as he holds up the championship while the crowd showers him with boos. Johnson walks down to the ring and walks up to Mark Michaels, who retreats into the turnbuckles. Leonhart steps up to Johnson but Johnson walks up to him and holds up the title to his face.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from the New Japan Wrestling Academy, weighing in at 215 pounds, he is the RAGING ROARING LION… ANTHONY LEONHART!!!! Introducing next, from Beverly Hills, California, weighing in at 240 pounds, he is the SELF PROCLAIMED SOCIAL MEDIA CHAMPION… MARK MICHAELS!!! And finally, the champion; from Atlanta, Georgia, weighing in at 270 pounds… HE IS THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION, LUCAS “THE WRESTLING MACHINE” JOHNSON!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: THIS CHAMPIONSHIP CONTEST IS UNDERWAY!!! The champion holds his ground in the center of the ring, while Mark Michaels and Anthony Leonhart hold adjacent corners, staring each other down! Johnson has his eye on both of them, waiting for one to make the unwise decision to attack! Michaels seems to be signalling for some sort of alliance with Leonhart, but after how Mark cheated to win last week on Dynasty, I don’t think Leonhart is going to want to work with him!
Mercer: Oh boohoo! He cheated in a singles match! If you really want to win this title, you’re going
to have to put that stupid ego aside — JOHNSON’S TIRED OF WAITING!!! HE GOES RIGHT FOR MARK MICHAELS, NAILING HIM IN THE CHEST WITH A BIG BOOT!!! MICHAELS FALLS BACK INTO THE CORNER AND JOHNSON’S ON HIM!!!! BODY BLOWS!!! JOHNSON IS USING MMA STYLE STRIKES TO KEEP MICHAELS IN THE CORNER!!!

LEONHART PUTS JOHNSON IN A WAISTLOCK AND STARTS TO PULL HIM OUT OF THE CORNER… JOHNSON SWINGS HIM TO THE MAT WITH A HIP TOSS!!! MARK MICHAELS SWINGS OUT OF THE CORNER WITH THE DISCUS PUNCH, LANDING IT SQUARE ON THE TEMPLE OF THE CHAMPION!!!
Mercer: Johnson goes down to his knees! Michaels takes to the corner, Johnson’s getting up to his feet… MICHAELS PUSHES HIMSELF UP TO THE SECOND ROPE AND JUMPS!!!… KNEE DROP!!! NO!!! JOHNSON ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND PUSHES HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET!!! MICHAELS LANDS AWKWARDLY ON HIS KNEE!!!! JOHNSON SEES THE EASY TARGET… BUT LEONHART SNEAKS UP BEHIND HIM!!! LEONHART HOOKS BOTH OF LUCAS JOHNSON’S ARMS BEHIND HIS HEAD…
Stew-O: LEONHART’S TRYING TO LOCK IN THE HOLD BY CLASPING HIS HANDS, COMPLETING THE DRAGON SLEEPER!!! JOHNSON’S PUTTING UP TOO MUCH RESISTANCE THOUGH, OVERPOWERING LEONHART’S GRIP… JOHNSON BREAKS FREE… BACK ELBOW TO THE FACE!!!! LEONHART STAGGERS BACK… JOHNSON PUTS HIM IN A WAISTLOCK!!! LEONHART IS FLAILING, TRYING TO FREE HIMSELF!!!… BUT JOHNSON LIFTS HIM IN THE AIR!!! JOHNSON HAS LEONHART UP FOR THE GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!…. TWO!!! —
Mercer: KICK OUT!!! LEONHART KICKS OUT RIGHT BEFORE THE REF BRINGS HIS ARM DOWN FOR TWO!!! What a fast paced start to this match! I gotta admit; Lucas Johnson may be the ace of this division, but Leonhart and Michaels are showing that they can keep up with the champ… for now at least!
Stew-O: Michaels is the only man up, rolling Leonhart away. Lucas Johnson is on his knees, and Michaels makes his way over to him… MICHAELS TOOK THE BAIT!!! JOHNSON HAD HIM SCOUTED AND HOPS UP WITH AN UPPERCUT!!! JOHNSON GRABS MICHAELS BY THE HEAD AND PULLS HIM IN FOR A HEADBUTT!!!! Johnson whips Michaels into the ropes now… HE SPINS HIM UP OFF OF HIS FEET ON THE RETURN!!! BUT MICHAELS SPINS HIS WAY BEHIND LUCAS JOHNSON AND LANDS ON HIS FEET!!! MICHAELS GRABS A HOLD OF JOHNSON AROUND HIS NECK AND PULLS HIM DOWN!!!… REVERSE DDT NECKBREAKER!!! MARK MICHAELS PUTS DOWN THE CHAMPION AND DROPS FOR THE COVER!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!…. TWO!!!…. —
Mercer: LEONHART DROPS DOWN WITH A LOW DROPKICK TO MARK MICHAELS, SENDING HIM ROLLING OFF OF LUCAS JOHNSON TO BREAK THE PIN!!! Mark Michaels scurries up to his feet but Anthony Leonhart lunges after him… KNIFE EDGE CHOP!!! MY GOD WHAT A STIFF SHOT!!!! I CAN SEE THE REDNESS SWELLING UP ON MICHAELS’ CHEST ALREADY; LOOK AT HIM STAGGER BACK IN AGONY!!! THAT WAS JUST ONE CHOP — AND LEONHART HITS ANOTHER!!! RIGHT ON THE SAME SENSITIVE SPOT!!!
Stew-O: MICHAELS FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES AND LEONHART COMES AT HIM ONE MORE TIME… THIS TIME MICHAELS GRABS THE ARM!!! MICHAELS KICKS LEONHART IN THE GUT AND RUNS TO THE ROPES!!!… MICHAELS MAKES HIS WAY BACK — OH!!! LOOK AT ANTHONY LEONHART!!!! SPRINGBOARD FROM THE SECOND ROPE… ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!!! ROUNDHOUSE TO THE SIDE OF MARK MICHAELS’ FACE!!!! MICHAELS GETS KNOCKED FOR A LOOP AND DROPS DOWN TO HIS KNEES, HIS HEAD ROCKING BACK AND FORTH, JUST BARELY STAYING ON A SEMI-VERTICAL BASE!!!

HE POPS ANTHONY LEONHART UP!!! WAIT WHAT THE HELL?!!! LEONHART GETS POPPED UP BUT JUMPS OVER LUCAS JOHNSON’S HEAD!!!! HE DROPS DOWN TO HIS FEET AND WHIPS JOHNSON INTO THE ROPES, RUNNING TO THE OPPOSITE PAIR HIMSELF!!!!
Stew-O: Johnson catches himself on the ropes and holds on… BUT LEONHART CHARGES TOWARDS MARK MICHAELS!!!…. KING LION!!!! MY GOD!!!!! THAT’S THE FIRST TIME I’VE SEE HIM USE THAT MOVE!!!! KNEE TO THE SIDE OF MARK MICHAELS’ HEAD!!! HE’S DOWN AND OUT!!!! JOHNSON RUNS TOWARDS ANTHONY LEONHART BEFORE HE CAN MAKE THE PIN… BUT LEONHART SEES HIM COMING!!!! HE JUMPS UP FOR THE ENZUI — NO!!! JOHNSON LUNGES HIS ARM FORWARD AND CATCHES LEONHART AROUND THE NECK IN MID AIR, USING HIS OWN MOMENTUM AGAINST HIM… TO PLANT HIM ON THE MAT WITH THE CHOKESLAM!!!! JOHNSON DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!…. TWO!!!…. —
Mercer: MARK MICHAELS BREAKS UP THE PINFALL!!!! JOHNSON STANDS UP, LOOKING LIVID, BUT MARK MICHAELS JUST SAVED THE MATCH IF ONLY FOR A FEW MORE MINUTES!!!! JOHNSON GRABS MICHAELS AROUND THE NECK AND PULLS HIM UP TO HIS FEET, SCREAMING IN HIS FACE — MARK MICHAELS SPITS IN JOHNSON’S FACE!!!… BAD IDEA!!!!

(“i” by Kendrick Lamar hits as Target Smiles has his hand raised)
Ring Announcer: Here is your WINNNERRRR AND THE DYNASTY REPRESENTATIVE FOR THE EXTREME ENIGMA ELIMINATION MATCH…TAARRRGETTTTT SMILLEEESSSSS!!!
Stew-O: THE UNDERDOG OF THIS ENTIRE MATCH, THE MAN THAT NO ONE THOUGHT WOULD BE ABLE TO GO UNTIL THE END, HE HAS JUST WON THE QUALIFYING MATCH AND HAS PUNCHED HIS TICKET IN FOR PAIN FOR PRIDE X! What a steal from this young kid here tonight in as he has beaten two former world champions and another promising talent for this opportunity!
Jake Mercer: You know what? I’m proud of this kid and even though he beat one of my favorite elitists to get here, think about this for a second. This is a perfect match and result to have for the Extreme Enigma Elimination match because he has captured the spirit of Extreme Enigma with his underdog victory! What a match!
(Target Smiles jumps to his feet and climbs to the top turnbuckle, cheering and celebrating the fact that he had been placed into the Extreme Enigma Elimination Match, as Scott Oasis stays laid out in the middle of the ring.)
(The greatest spectacle of all time, the night that will be historic, and a day that you’ll never forget in EAW history… PAIN FOR PRIDE X… ONLY 36 DAYS AWAY!)
(The camera fades back into the Barclays Center with the intense fans shooting up in cheers and insanity when the focus is placed entirely on the ring announcer standing in the middle of the ring.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for one fall where the winner of this match will be declared THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER TO THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!
(“You Will Know Our Name” by ACE+ fills the entire arena as Moongoose McQueen walks out with a amazing red-and-silver anime-style jacket, holding his arms out in pride for the apparel that he has on, as he raises his hand in the air while he walks down the ramp towards the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, he is from Austin, Texas… weighing in at 236 pounds… he is “The Duke” MOOOOONNNGGGOOOOOOSSSSEEEEE MCCQQQUUUEEEEEEENNNNN!!!
Stew-O: Moongoose McQueen makes his first-appearance into the Barclays Center, his first-ever supershow representing the Dynasty brand, and what a match that he has in store for him tonight! He made a demand towards the General Manager that he wanted to be next in line for the EAW Interwire Championship, he wanted the chance to take on one of the best men that this place has ever produced, and he could have gotten here tonight as Monroe was so close to handing it to him!
Jake Mercer: Yeah, but he now has to EARN that opportunity like everyone else here on the roster! Moongoose has to have one of the biggest tests in his career in this match tonight to see if he can get that opportunity to compete for the EAW Interwire Championship once again!
(“S.O.A.R.” by Devour The Day echoes throughout the Barclays Center when Jacob Senn steps out to stage with his red-and-black variation of his attire with his steel-plated jacket on, holding his gun taunt towards his opponent in the ring when he simulates firing and raises his hands beside him in confidence with the fireworks shooting up in the air.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing his opponent, he is from Chicago, Illinois… weighing in at 218 pounds… he is “The Punisher”… JAACCCOOOOBBBBB SEENNNNNNNN!!!!
Jake Mercer: THE PUNISHER IS HERE! Jacob Senn has made it to Brooklyn and he’s here to get what he wants! After weeks of meeting humiliation at the hands of Mr. DEDEDE from his denial to take part in Jacob’s well-deserved induction into the EAW Hall of Fame, Jacob has now desired to take retribution against him not only through costing him his match against Robbie V!
Stew-O: Yeah, he did that and it was disgusting to see one of our stars invade onto Showdown’s supershow to do something like that, but that’s not his only motivation. He wants a match against him to not only give him the humiliation that he gave unto him, but he wants to show the world that he will usurp Mr. DEDEDE as the face of this company. However, if he wants to do that, he needs to get through his opponent tonight to be named number one contender to face him!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: The match has been called to start with the sound of the bell and both men are in their respective corners, Jacob Senn removing his jacket and throwing it down while Moongoose McQueen jumps up and down in his corner, before both men start to circle around the ring to try and get bearings on their opponent. After a few moments, we see both men lunge at one another LOCKING HORNS FOR A TEST OF STRENGTH BETWEEN THE TWO MEN TO SEE WHICH MAN WILL GET THE UPPER HAND IN THIS FIGHT! BOTH OF THEM ARE PUSHING AND JOCKEYING FOR POSITION HERE IN THIS MATCH, BUT ONLY ONE CAN BE ABLE TO GET STARTED IN THIS!
Jake Mercer: JACOB SENN TAKES ADVANTAGE WITH A STIFF ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW BEFORE PULLS HIM IN FOR THE SIDE-HEADLOCK! Jacob wrenches down on the neck of Moongoose in an attempt to force him down to the canvas BUT MOONGOOSE STRIKES WITH AN ELBOW TO THE RIBS OF SENN! Senn hunches over from the pain as Moongoose rushes to the ropes LOOKING TO COME BACK WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK TO THE SIDE O–
Stew-O: JACOB SENN JUMPS IN THE AIR TO AVOID GETTING HIT WITH THIS MOVE AS MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN RUSHES IN AND HITS THE ROPES! Moongoose bounces off and returns to Jacob WHO DUCKS UNDER AS MOONGOOSE RUNS OVER HIM TO MEET THE ROPES ONCE MORE! Moongoose rebounds once more before he returns to his opponent BLASTED IN THE FACE WITH A MAJOR DROPKICK THAT SENDS MOONGOOSE STRAIGHT TO THE FLOOR! JACOB KIPS RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND RAISES HIS HANDS TO HIS SIDE AS A SIGN OF CONFIDENCE IN THIS MATCH!
Jake Mercer: Do you blame him, Stew? The man’s going into the Hall of Fame and is going up against a man that he considers to not even be close to his league! Moongoose McQueen starts to roll outside of the ring from the impact of that dropkick, holding his jaw as he stumbles around the outside, as Jacob Senn finishes his gloating and looks outside to see his opponent! Jacob looks over towards him as he sprints towards the rope for a bunch of speed RUSHING TO LAUNCH HIMSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO MOONGOOSE WITH THE FOSBURY FLOP!
Stew-O: SWEET SISTER MARY! JACOB SENN HAS MADE A BEAUTIFUL DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE AS HE HITS ALL OF THAT FOSBURY FLOP TO DROP MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN TO THE FLOOR! The fans aren’t totally behind the former world champion and start to turn against him for that when he leans on the barricade and starts talking trash to an audience member before telling them to suck it! He grabs Moongoose and tosses him right back into the ring! He rolls back into the ring himself and stands up STOMPING RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF MOONGOOSE! JACOB HAS JUST BEEN DOMINANT SINCE THE START OF THIS MATCH AND SHOWING NO SIGNS OF LETTING UP!
Jake Mercer: Jacob Senn grabs Moongoose McQueen by his hair and starts to lift him up to his feet HOOKING HIM IN BY HIS NECK TO POSSIBLY GO FOR A BRAINBUSTER RIGHT HERE! NO! MOONGOOSE USES ALL THE STRENGTH HE HAS TO FORCE JACOB INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER WITH A SHOULDER THRUST! YOU CAN SEE A MAJOR GASP OF AIR COME OUT OF SENN WHEN THAT HAPPENS! MOONGOOSE DRIVE ANOTHER SHOULDER INTO HIS STOMACH BEFORE HE LETS UP AND STARES WITH INTENSITY AT HIM!
Stew-O: Moongoose McQueen starts to talk smack to his opponent about how this is his chance to shine STRIKING HIM IN THE FACE WITH AN OPEN-PALM SLAP TO THE FACE BEFORE HE SPRINTS BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLE CORNER ACROSS FROM HIM! He hits the turnbuckle before he runs back to his opponent STRIKING HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE WITH A FULL-SPEED RUNNING CORNER DROPKICK! JACOB ALMOST FALLS OUT OF THE CORNER BUT MOONGOOSE ROLLS UP AND GRABS HIM BEFORE HE PULLS HIM OUT OF THE CORNER! WHAT’S HE ABOUT TO DO, JAKE?
Jake Mercer: Right now, Moongoose McQueen has him from behind in the waistlock as he takes him to the center of the ring LIFTING HIM UP IN THE AIR FOR THE GERMAN SUPLEX! HOLD UP! JACOB FLIPS OVER AND LANDS STRAIGHT DOWN TO HIS FEET BEFORE HE SHOVES MOONGOOSE AWAY FROM HIM! Jacob gets his balance back when he rushes to Moongoose CAUGHT BY HIM WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! JACOB IS DAZED AS YOU CAN SEE HIM START TO SHAKE HIS HEAD TO KNOCK THOSE COBWEBS OUT, BUT MOONGOOSE GRABS HIM BY THE ARM AND PULLS HIM IN! BLACKOUT! THE INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER FROM MOONGOOSE AS HE DROPS HIM TO THE CANVAS TO DRIVE HIS BOOT RIGHT INTO THE JAW OF SENN! Jacob collapses to the canvas LEAVING MOONGOOSE WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO SCRAMBLE IN FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Stew-O: JACOB SENN THROWS HIS SHOULDER UP WITH PLENTY OF TIME TO SPARE AS MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN WASN’T ABLE TO TAKE THE PUNISHER DOWN WITH THAT SHOT! You can see the irritation start to arise on the face of Moongoose, but he can’t let that irritation get the best of him as he stands back up to his feet, as he stands over him STRIKING WITH A BIG STOMP TO THE CHEST OF SENN BEFORE HE PULLS HIM UP TO HIS FEET! Moongoose starts to hook Senn by his arms LOOKING TO PUT HIM OUT WITH TH–
Jake Mercer: WITH NOTHING! JACOB SENN LIFTS MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN UP AND TOSSING HIM BACK WITH A BACK BODY DROP! He stumbles over to the ropes as you see Moongoose arch with his back in pain before he starts to sit up in a seated position! Jacob turns around to see this AS HE RUSHES IN FOR THE SLIDING FOREARM SHOT RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN! NO ONE HOME! MOONGOOSE DUCKS DOWN WHEN HE SEES THAT ELBOW COMING AT HIM AS SENN LANDED NOTHING WHEN MOONGOOSE KIPS UP TO HIS FEET IN STYLES TO WHERE HE STARTS TO TAUNT TO THE CROWD ABOUT HIS ATHLETICISM! He turns around to see Senn up to his feet LOOKING TO NAIL HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE WITH THE SUPERKICK!
Stew-O: JACOB SENN CATCHES THE BOOT OF MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN BEFORE HE COULD CONNECT WITH THE SUPERKICK! HE THROWS HIS LEG TO THE SIDE TO SPIN HIM AROUND AS HE MAKES A COMPLETE 360° BEFORE HE IS MET BY SENN WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE TO THE JAW! HE STRIKES WITH A PUNCH AND A SHOOT KICK TO THE STOMACH OF MOONGOOSE BEFORE HE SPINS BACK WITH A SPIT-FLYING SPINNING BACKFIST BEFORE HE ROLLS AROUND FOR THE ROLLING LARIAT! HE COULD COMPLETE THAT SECOND CITY COMBINATION!
Jake Mercer: SUPERKICK! MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN IS ABLE TO BLAST JACOB SENN IN THE FACE WITH THE SUPERKICK WITH JACOB BARELY ABLE TO STAND, STUMBLING ALL AROUND THE RING WITH HIS KNEES WEAK! Moongoose McQueen takes this moment to rush back into the ropes and return TO DROP HIS OPPONENT WITH THE SLINGBLADE! WHAT? THE SHEER INSTINCT OF THE VETERAN AS JACOB DUCKED UNDER THE ARMS OF MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN AND RUSHED TO THE ROPES FOR THE SPRINGBOARD! PHENOMENON DDT!
Stew-O: HOLD UP! MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN STANDS HIS GROUND WITH JACOB SENN UNABLE TO BRING HIM DOWN FOR THE SPRINGBOARD REVERSE DDT! KICK RIGHT IN THE FACE! MOONGOOSE JUST ROSE HIS LEG UP TO KICK JACOB TO WHERE HE MIGHT HAVE JUST SEEN A TOOTH FLY OUT! NO? WELL, THAT’S STILL QUITE A KICK! JACOB IS STUNNED AS MOONGOOSE SPINS AROUND AND HOOKS HIM IN! AMAZING IMPACT! REVERSE OLYMPIC SLAM RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS WITH SENN NAILING THE CANVAS FACE-FIRST BEFORE HE TURNS IT AROUND INTO A BREAKING POINT SUBMISSION! HE HAS HIM LOCKED INTO THAT CRIPPLER CROSSFACE OF HIS!
Jake Mercer: JACOB SENN REACHES OUT FOR THE BOTTOM ROPE AS HE STARTS TO CRAWL HIS WAY TOWARDS IT! MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN WRENCHES HARD ON THE SUBMISSION AS A VICTORY IN A MANNER LIKE THIS WOULD RAISE HIS STOCK TREMENDOUSLY HERE! MOONGOOSE DESPERATELY WANTS TO PUT HIM AWAY WITH THIS SUBMISSION AND IT COULD VERY WELL BE IT AS SENN IS HAVING TROUBLE BEING ABLE TO GET HIMSELF OVER TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! WHAT IS HE GOING TO DO TO BE ABLE TO– LOOK AT THIS! SENN HOOKS HIS ARM AROUND THE LEGS OF MOONGOOSE THAT USED THEM TO TRAP HIS ARMS AS HE HOOKS HIM IN FOR THE PIN!
Stew-O: MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN IS BEING SMART ABOUT THIS AS HE SWITCHES THINGS UP AND KEEPS HIS SHOULDERS UP, TRANSITIONING INTO AN ARM TRIANGLE CHOKE, KEEPING THE PRESSURE ON HIS OPPONENT! HOWEVER, THAT MIGHT HAVE JUST HELP JACOB SENN INSTEAD OF DETERRING HIM! JACOB USES THIS TO LIFT MOONGOOSE OFF OF THE CANVAS AND UP IN THE AIR IN A POWERBOMB POSITION! MOONGOOSE STILL HAS IT APPLIED, BUT NOT FOR VERY LONG WHEN SENN STRIKES HIM IN THE FACE WITH A STIFF BLOW! MOONGOOSE’S BODY AND HEAD DROP DOWN WITH JACOB STILL HOLDING HIS LEGS AND HOOKS HIS ARMS! HE HAS HIM IN FOR IT! JACOB’S LADDER! THE STYLES CLASH RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS BEFORE HE ROLLS HIM AROUND ON HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE PIN!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!…
Jake Mercer: A KICKOUT? MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN WAS ABLE TO KICK OUT OF THAT PIN ATTEMPT SOMEHOW! Jacob Senn gets to his feet and shakes his head, not letting it end like this, as he points towards the head of Moongoose CALLING HIS SHOT RIGHT HERE FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD TO SEE AS HE STEPS BACK INTO THE ROPES! MOONGOOSE IS CLIMBING AND GETTING ON HIS HANDS AND KNEES! JACOB SPRINTS IN TO PUT HIM BACK DOWN WITH THE SHADOW STEP! CURB STO–
“AYYYYYY, Y’ALL HEARD ABOUT THE GOOD NEWS?”
“Y’ALL SLEEPING ON ME, HUH? HAD A GOOD SNOOZE?”
“WAKE UP, N***A, WAKE UP!”
“WE BOUT TO GET THIS PAPER!”
(“Feedback” by Kanye West interrupts the match with Jacob Senn stopping right before he gets to Moongoose McQueen when he snaps around towards the stage to see the music coming on.)
Stew-O: ARE WE GOING TO SEE A BIT OF JUSTICE FROM MR. DEDEDE HERE TONIGHT? JACOB SENN DID THE SAME THING TO MR. DEDEDE AT RESURRECTION V, COULD HE GET THE SAME EFFECT HERE TONIGHT? Jacob starts to snarl a bit and call for DEDEDE to get out here and face him, but no one is appearing! Jacob starts to scoff and wave his hands towards the stage as the song fades out, he turns around to go back to his opponent, but his eyes widen WHEN HE’S MET WITH A RUNNING HIGH KNEE STRIKE TO THE FACE BY MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN!
Jake Mercer: THE TIME THAT JACOB SENN TOOK TO NOTICE THE THEME OF MR. DEDEDE GAVE MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO STRIKE RIGHT THERE! Moongoose sprints into the ropes and comes from behind Jacob LEAPING UP IN THE AIR FOR THE KNEE DROP BULLDOG! YATA-GARASU! A NEW MOVE DEBUTED HERE TONIGHT IN THE BARCLAYS CENTER WHEN MOONGOOSE ROLLS HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE PIN ATTEMPT!
Referee: ONNNEEE!!!… TWWWOOO!!!… THHHRRREEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“You Will Know Our Name” by ACE+ plays in the background with a look of shock and surprise coming from Moongoose McQueen as he places his hands to his face in disbelief when his hand is raised high in the air.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner… AND THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER TO THE EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP… MOOOOONNNGGGOOOOOOSSSSEEEEE MCCQQQUUUEEEEEEENNNNN!!!
Stew-O: CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS, MERCER? I ALMOST CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT WE ARE SEEING RIGHT NOW! MOONGOOSE MCQUEEN HAS JUST WON AGAINST A FORMER WORLD CHAMPION AND AN UPCOMING HALL OF FAMER RIGHT HERE AT BURNING DESIRE! Not only that, but he gets an EAW Interwire Championship Match against Mr. DEDEDE in the VERY near future!
Jake Mercer: THAT’S AN INJUSTICE RIGHT THERE, STEW! One of those production crew members in the back hit the theme of Mr. DEDEDE and it caused Jacob Senn to be distracted! I mean, he had him right here on the ground for the Shadow Step and what happened? He was interrupted by it and caused Moongoose McQueen to have enough time to recover! Such a tragedy right here tonight, Stew!
Stew-O: Well, we have our new number one contender to the EAW Interwire Championship and that man’s name is Moongoose McQueen! Everyone has to believe that he will be looking to make this his Pain for Pride X match, but then again, we also thought that Jacob would have won this match! We’ll have to see next week what happens and when Moongoose McQueen is going to get this championship opportunity!
(Moongoose McQueen jumps to his feet and rushes over to the turnbuckle climbing to the top and celebrating his victory here tonight, earning an EAW Interwire Championship Match, as Jacob Senn rolls and writhes around in pain.)
(The camera cuts backstage to a visibly frustrated Cage making his way through a hallway with Judas Lemeul attempting to calm him down.)
???: It’s been a long time.
(Cage stops and turns to lock eyes with Jaywalker and Ares Vendetta when Judas stands between the three men.)
Judas: … What do you want?
Jaywalker: What do we want? Come on now, Cage and I are friends, aren’t we? I wanted to congratulate you on the effort you put out there tonight, Cage.
Judas: Well, we appreciate the congratulations that you have graced us with, but we have a future to consider on the path to Pain for Pride X.
(Judas and Cage begin to take their leave)
(Both men reluctantly stop with Cage still visibly exhausted from his match as they turn back to Jaywalker and Ares)
Jaywalker: As they say, when one door closes, another opens.
Judas: What’s that supposed to mean?
Ares: It means that Cage has got an opportunity to do more than compete in some memorial match.
(An annoyed Cage gets in Ares’ face before Judas shoves him back and calms him down.)
Judas: Ares, we weren’t asking you. Cage has never liked your father, and he sure as Hell don’t like you.
Jaywalker: Hey, hey, let’s relax. Let’s just calm down. Ares has no ill will towards you or Cage. In fact, he’s the one who suggested we come to the both of you.
Judas: As kind as that is, why don’t we go ahead and get to the point, boys? What do you want from us?
Jaywalker: You’re well aware what Ares and I are in the midst of right now. We’ve got Devan Dubian, the Heart Break Boy, and now CM Banks of all people trying to pursue us. We need a third man.
Judas: So, you want my son to be able to help you fight a war that the both of you started?
Jaywalker: Of course not. I want Cage to do something great. Like it or not, like Ares said, he’s better than some Extreme Enigma Elimination Match. Last week when Banks returned and didn’t even hesitate to assault me despite being my mentor at one time, I realized that I would never do the same to a man I consider my protege of sorts. I have never betrayed Cage, and vise versa. You are loyal, Cage, and that’s hard to come by. I want you at my side because you deserve better than what you’ve gotten. What do you say?
(Cage takes several seconds to think about it before he looks over to Judas and nods in acceptance.)
Judas: …. Fine, we’ll take your offer. Cage will do whatever is necessary to make sure that this war is won. Now if you will excuse us, we need to recollect ourselves.
(Judas and Cage walk off as Ares and a pleased Jaywalker look on.)
(The camera fades back into the Barclays Center with the intense fans shooting up in cheers and insanity when the focus is placed entirely on the ring announcer standing in the middle of the ring.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Ring Announcer: The following contest scheduled for one fall… IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING AND IS FOR THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
Stew-O: This hot Brooklyn crowd are on their feet as they await our main event of the evening! This one is bound to be good!!
(“Ambitionz Az A Ridah” by Tupac blasts through the speakers to a huge ovation as TLA drives out in a hot pink and black lowrider! Two beautiful blonde women in tight, red dresses sit on top of the backseat as TLA gets to the bottom of the ramp before fiddling around with the car hydraulics as the crowd begin to chant, “T-L-A!” over and over…)
Stew-O: Jake Mercer, this man has had one incredible 2017 thus far. He’s come up short in a lot of instances, but he knows how much his career needs this win tonight to add a world championship to his resume!
Jake: And TLA is looking fly alongside two Poon Palace amigas – this man is about to have himself a fiesta in the ring! Look, I even brought along a sombrero!
Stew-O: Sigh…do you have to be racist on our biggest show so far this year?
(The two women escort TLA up the steel stairs and onto the ring apron where pull up the top rope as he enters and poses to the crowd…)
Jake: We now await the arrival of our champion … THE SAINT OF VALIANCE, JAMIE O’HARA!!!
(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin plays to a big ovation, as Jamie O’Hara enters through the curtains with his title around his waist. He poses to the crowd on the stage before confidently making his way down the aisle, staring TLA down…)
Stew-O: YOU CAN FEEL THE ENERGY IN THIS ARENA TONIGHT FOR THE BURNING DESIRE MAIN EVENT! THIS IS GOING TO BE ONE YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS!
Jake: Two incredibly talented men are about to go one on one for the first time ever, and it just so happens to be for the EAW World Championship! Who will be the EAW World Heavyweight Champion going into Pain For Pride X?!
(The two stand in their respective corners as the ring announcer takes the center of the ring…)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, the challenger … residing from The Poon Palace in Miami, Florida! Weighing in at 220 pounds …… he is La Pantera Sexual …….. TTT-LLL-AAA!!!!!!!!!!
(Cheers from the crowd as TLA begins to jump up and down in the ring, staring down Jamie O’Hara with a smug look on his face…)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent … from Melbourne, Australia! Weighing in at 241 pounds … HE IS THE SAINT OF VALIANCE AND YOOOOOUR EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION … JJJAAAAAMMMIIIEEEE OOOOO’HAAAARRRAAAAA!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: LISTEN TO THE OVATION OF BOTH THESE MEN! THE TWO CROWD FAVORITES OF DYNASTY ARE ABOUT TO DO BATTLE! THE ATMOSPHERE HERE IN BARCLAYS CENTER IS SOMETHING I CAN ONLY TRY TO DESCRIBE! THE ROOF IS ABOUT TO BECOME UNGLUED AS THIS CROWD CANNOT DECIDE WHO TO CHANT FOR!
Jake: IT IS DEAFENING IN HERE, AS THE TWO MEN WALK INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND STARE EACH OTHER DOWN! The referee however gets in between the two and they both quickly back up to their corners once more … AND HE CALLS FOR THE BELL!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding)
Stew-O: AND WE ARE OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY! JAMIE O’HARA … TLA … EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE LINE IN OUR BURNING DESIRE MAIN EVENT! The two begin to circle the ring, but the two get sidetracked because THIS CROWD WILL NOT STOP CHANTING FOR BOTH MEN!
Crowd: LET’S GO JAMIE! T-L-A! LET’S GO JAMIE! T-L-A! LET’S GO JAMIE! T-L-A!
Jake: TLA takes a moment to look around at the endless sea of EAW fans in attendance, BUT IT MIGHT HAVE JUST COSTED HIM AS JAMIE O’HARA COMES IN WITH A KNEE RIGHT TO THE RIBS! A forearm to the jaw followed by an elbow to the temple, and TLA stumbles back into the ropes! Jamie attempts to reach out for him but TLA uses the ropes as cover as the referee steps in between them, and Jamie obliges and backs up.
Stew-O: That’s one thing you must know about Jamie O’Hara. He is as smart as he is talented! TLA and Jamie begin to circle the ring again, and they lockup in the middle! It’s a power struggle right now, but it looks like the champion gets the upper hand as he locks TLA in a headlock! TLA attempts to get out of his predicament, but it’s all the champion now as Jamie pushes TLA to the ropes! TLA comes running back and he receives a CLOTHESLINE! Jamie now runs the ropes himself now! He comes back but TLA rolls over onto his stomach and Jamie runs over the top of the contender! TLA jumps back to his feet and attempts A CLOTHESLINE OF HIS OWN!! BUT JAMIE DUCKS UNDER IT! BACK TO THE ROPES AGAIN AND HE REBOUNDS! TLA ATTEMPTS A BACKHAND! JAMIE DUCKS UNDER IT AGAIN! REBOUNDING FROM THE ROPES AND JAMIE WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE NOSE, AND TLA ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, HOLDING THE BRIDGE OF HIS NOSE IN PAIN!
Jake: Great sequence there by both men! But uh-oh Stew – WE HAVE GOT BLOOD! TLA is bleeding from his nose! That knee connected hard right to the bridge of his nose, but TLA does his best to shrug it off. He climbs up onto the ring apron as the referee tells him to get back inside. TLA climbs back into the ring and Jamie and TLA go face to face again! The two are just shouting insults and profanity at each other. They know that this championship is bigger than both of them, and respect for each other has gone out the window!
Stew-O: TLA HAS HAD ENOUGH! TLA WITH A MULTIPLE FOREARMS TO THE HEAD OF JAMIE AND JAMIE STUMBLES BACK INTO THE ROPES! TLA with an irish whip to the opposite side of the ropes and TLA TAKES DOWN JAMIE WITH A LARIAT! Jamie is back up and TLA now with ANOTHER LARIAT! And one more for good measure!! And just like that, TLA has taken over with a series of moves, and he decides to take the time to pose for this hot Brooklyn crowd here tonight!
Jake: And Jamie O’Hara on his knees, with a bit of a smile there. TLA allows Jamie to get back to his feet.
TLA: What’s wrong amigo? Can’t handle a bit of lucha áspero?
Jamie: Why don’t you speak English you son of a bitch?
Jake: More smart-mouthing! This is becoming a personal affair ladies and gentleman! Jamie now with a shove to TLA, pushing him back. TLA smirks and shakes his head, and looks up at Jamie before SHOVING HIM RIGHT BACK! Things are getting a little heated now, as Jamie attempts to shove TLA even harder, and the force pushes TLA right back into the ropes, but TLA comes roaring back with an even HARDER shove!! This time Jamie goes into the ropes BUT HE COMES ROARING BACK WITH A RIGHT FOREARM, BUT NOW TLA WITH A FOREARM NOW… THIS IS A FOREARM BRAWL! BOTH MEN TRADING SHOTS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AND THE CROWD POPS FOR IT!
Stew-O: TLA with one huge elbow to the temple of Jamie and Jamie stumbles back into the ropes. Jamie shakes it off and rushes toward TLA, but TLA now throws Jamie outside of the ring and to the floor right in front of our table!! Jamie gets up almost immediately and turns towards the ring but … LOOK OUT!! TLA WITH A SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES, FORCING JAMIE OVER OUR TABLE AND HE LANDS HARD RIGHT AT OUR FEET!! TLA is fired up here tonight!
Jake: You’re not wrong Stew! TLA has climbed up onto our announce table and tries to get this crowd behind him even more, but honestly that’s going to be hard to do! Judging by this hot Brooklyn crowd, the majority of them are already behind him! They want TLA to win the World Heavyweight Title here tonight! TLA grabs Jamie by his bald head and lifts him up onto the table with him now. What has TLA got in mind here?! TLA spins Jamie around so he’s facing the crowd and wraps his arms around his stomach! OH GOD! HE’S LOOKING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX!!! TLA LIFTS ……. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD IT CONNECTS! TLA DELIVERS A DEVASTATING GERMAN SUPLEX OFF OF OUR TABLE HERE STRAIGHT TO THE FLOOR, AND OUR CHAMPION LANDS ON HIS NECK!!!!
Stew-O: MY GOD!! THAT LOOKED VICIOUS! The referee has climbed to the outside and is over to check on Jamie, as TLA slides back into the ring and poses once again! Jamie is really struggling down there at ringside, trying his best to sit up-
Referee: Are you okay, Jamie? Can you continue this?
Jamie: YES! JUST- YES, I’M GOOD!
Stew-O: The referee now rolls back into the ring and begins his count…
Referee: ONE!!! … TWO!!! … THREE!!! … FOUR!!! …
Jake: Jamie is to his feet now, but Stew he does not look good at all. This is the time for TLA to take advantage over the champion! Jamie slowly rolls into the ring, BUT LOOK OUT NOW! WASTING NO TIME, TLA DELIVERS MULTIPLE FOOT STOMPS TO THE RIBCAGE OF JAMIE. TLA drags Jamie into the center of the ring away from the ropes, so a rope break will not stop this assault! TLA gets down onto his knees and delivers a few fists to the temple of Jamie! This is relentless! This is what the number one contender has to do though in order to achieve a victory over Jamie here tonight! Some people may not like it, but it’s a legit strategy!
Stew-O: I will have to agree with you there, Jake! TLA now lifts Jamie to his feet, and Jamie is teetering. He is out of it!! TLA …. OH MY THE SWAG SHOT!!! WHAT A PIMP SLAP! YOU COULD HEAR THAT ONE UP IN THE CHEAP SEATS LADIES AND GENTLEMAN! THAT SWAG SHOT SPUN JAMIE INTO A 360! JAMIE FALLS FORWARD INTO TLA’S ARMS. TLA smiles at the fans, before pushing him off and DELIVERING A DEVASTATING UPPERCUT!!! GOOD GOD! HERE’S A COVER!
Referee: OOOONNNNEEEEE!!! TTTTWWWOOOOOOO!!!
Stew-O: And a kickout by the champion!
Jake: This is unbelievable that TLA has taken control of this match. Almost with ease, Stew! Jamie is the toughest champion here in EAW, and TLA is playing around with him like he’s a bully stealing some little kid’s lunch money! TLA back to his feet now as Jamie slowly rises to his knees. TLA begins to slap around the temple of Jamie. TLA runs for the ropes … HE COMES BACK AND DELIVERS A SHINING WIZARD!!!
Stew-O: NO!! JAMIE RISES TO HIS FEET AND LIFTS TLA UP … SIT OUT POWERBOMB!!!! A MOVE THAT CAME FROM NOTHING! THAT WAS A MOVE THAT JAMIE NEEDED TO HIT IN ORDER TO EVEN ATTEMPT TO GET BACK INTO THIS MATCHUP! JAMIE IS STILL FEELING THE EFFECTS FROM THAT CRAZY GERMAN SUPLEX EARLIER, BUT THIS IS A FIGHTING CHAMPION RIGHT HERE!
Jake: But can you believe it? While Jamie crawls to a corner, TLA is already back on his feet, however he is holding the back of his neck in pain. TLA eyes the champion. TLA tries to get the crowd behind him again, and they comply! TLA sprints towards Jamie– JAMIE WITH ANOTHER KNEE TO THE FACE! A MOVE THAT SENT TLA FLIPPING INSIDE OUT!! JAMIE KNOWS NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE CONTROL! HE BEGINS TO STOMP AWAY AT THE DOWNED TLA NOW! Any offence right now is good offence!
Stew-O: Jamie still looking woozy though, but he has taken over! Jamie lifts TLA to his feet and knees him in the gut! TLA is bent over now, holding his sternum. Jamie takes a step back before connecting with ANOTHER KNEE TO THE FACE! Jamie O’Hara is trying to destroy the face of this man!
Jake: A beautiful man at that! The Poon Palace bitches better hope he recovers because he now has a swollen left eye! Damn! Jamie now grabs TLA and sends him over the top rope, but TLA lands on the apron! Jamie sighs, before running the ropes and rebounding and DELIVERING ANOTHER DEADLY KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE OF TLA AND TLA FALLS OFF THE APRON AND TO THE FLOOR!
Stew-O: Jamie lets out a ROAR before rolling under the bottom rope. He stands over the downed TLA and shakes his head, before slowly lifting him to his feet. Jamie now, he attempts an irish whip into THOSE STEEL STAIRS! …NO! TLA REVERSES IT FOR AN IRISH WHIP OF HIS OWN AND INSTEAD JAMIE CONNECTS INTO THOSE STEPS WITH FORCE! Both men are down, and the referee begins another count!
Referee: ONE! … TWO! … THREE! …
Jake: TLA is up, but he isn’t planning on getting back into the ring! He knows if he wants this title, a countout victory will not suffice! He must pin the champ or make him tap!
Referee: FOUR! … FIVE!
Jake: And TLA lifts Jamie to his feet, before pushing him INTO THE BARRICADE KIDNEY FIRST!!
Referee: SIX! …
Stew-O: TLA grabs Jamie by the head and rolls him into the ring and slides in soon after! A cover!!!
Referee: OOONNNEEE!!! TTTWWWOOOOO!!!
Stew-O: Another kickout! It’s going to take a lot more than that to put our champion away! TLA shakes his head, before getting Jamie into a headlock! TLA looks like he’s trying to out-psyche the champion here; toying with him almost. But the fans are beginning a slow clap now, and Jamie is sloooowwlly rising back to his feet! Jamie begins to elbow TLA in the gut, but TLA with an elbow right to the back of the neck of Jamie!
TLA: It’s over, amigo!
Jake: TLA with some choice words there, and he once again runs the ropes and comes roaring back with a knee of his own!!- …NO!!! NO!!! OH MY GOD!! IN EXCELSIS! IN EXCELSIS! YOU’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!! THE RUNNING KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS AND TLA IS OUT COLD! THE FANS ARE ON THERE FEET! WHAT A COUNTER! JAMIE SLOWLY CRAWLS TO THE COVER. THIS ONE IS ALL OVER!…
Referee: OOOONNNEEEEE!!!! TTTWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!! TTTHRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEE–
Stew-O: NO!!! TLA JUST GETS A SHOULDER UP! IF IT WERE ANY CLOSER, THIS MATCH WOULD HAVE BEEN OVER, BUT TLA IS STILL ALIVE IN THIS CONTEST! Not a lot of people have kicked out of the In Excelsis, but TLA did, and that just proves that this man has heart, and knows that you must not give up easily if you want to be a main champion here in EAW! And for the first time in a while, Jamie is the first man back to his feet! TLA is crawling towards the ropes, but Jamie grabs him by the tights and lifts him up! OH!! TLA WITH A BACK ELBOW THAT ROCKS JAMIE! Jamie stumbles back, but shakes it off and tries to grab TLA again–
Jake: CARTEL KICK!!! CARTEL KICK BY TLA!! THAT PELE SENT JAMIE STRAIGHT TO THE MAT! TLA rolls out onto the ring apron and slowly uses the ropes to lift himself back to his feet! He slowly climbs up to the top rope… I THINK HE’S THINKING A BURNOUT HERE STEW!
Stew-O: I think you’re right, partner! TLA balances himself on the top rope before pointing both fingers to the sky!!! …BUT JAMIE IS UP! JAMIE JUMPS AT THE ROPES AND TLA LOSES HIS BALANCE! TLA falls, but is sitting upright on the turnbuckle!! Jamie now … what has this man got in mind?! He is slowly climbing that top rope! You can visibly see it in his face that he is in a lot of pain, but he’s trying to push through it! Jamie lifts a shoulder over his head … I THINK HE’S THINKING A SUPERPLEX!
Jake: I think so too! Jamie leans down and grabs TLA by the tights. HE LIFTS —- FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!! KINGS REGNUM FROM THE TOP ROPE ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!-
Stew-O: NO!! HOLD ON WHAT?!?! HOW IN THE- … TLA REVERSES IT MID AIR AND GRABS JAMIE BY THE RIGHT ARM! JAMIE LANDS ON HIS BACK … THE CROSSED PATHS IS LOCKED IN ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, TLA REVERSED A KINGS REGNUM FROM THE TOP ROPE INTO A CROSS ARMBREAKER, AND JAMIE O’HARA LOOKS LIKE HE’S READY TO TAP OUT!
Jake: IF TLA MAKES OUR CHAMPION TAP OUT TONIGHT, WHAT A STORY THAT WOULD BE FOR THIS MAN! CHASING HIS FIRST WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP HERE IN EAW! IMAGINE IF HE GOES INTO PAIN FOR PRIDE X AS DYNASTY’S MAIN CHAMP! JAMIE TRYING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO REACH FOR THOSE ROPES! HE ISN’T FAR FROM THEM AT ALL, BUT TLA IS REAAAALLY PULLING AT THE ARM!
TLA: TAP! I WILL PULL YOUR ARM OUT OF IT’S SOCKET, CABRON!
Jake: Jamie is not listening! He’s stopped reaching out for the ropes and is attempting to use that free arm to attack the knee of TLA, but it’s no good as TLA pulls EVEN HARDER!!! JAMIE SLAMS HIS HAND DOWN!!! BUT ONLY ONCE! HE’S NOT WILLING TO TAP BUT HE IS SO VERY CLOSE TO IT!
Stew-O: Jamie trying to position his legs closer towards the bottom rope, but TLA is not allowing Jamie to get ANYWHERE! Jamie has no choice … HE GOES TO TAP!!!!!!… NO! NO HE’S NOT! Jamie slowly rolls towards TLA and leans over his knees! IT’S A PIN ATTEMPT!!
Referee: OOOONNNEEEEE!! TTTTWWWWOOOOOOOO!! TTTHHRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Jake: TLA has to release the hold to avoid the pinfall! The match is still on and both men are still alive … somehow. TLA talking to the referee trying to make sure he definitely kicked out before the three count, and the referee tells him he did. TLA releases a sigh of relief before turning around … SUPPPERRRRKIIICCCKKK!!! SUPERKICK BY JAMIE O’HARA!! …OH MY GOD, WAIT!
Jake: IT CONNECTED WITH THE REFEREE!!! THE REFEREE IS OUT COLD! TLA managed to get out of the way in the knick of time! The champion can’t believe it, and screams angrily! Jamie turns around towards TLA- …OH MY! TLA GETTING JAMIE IN POSITION!!! THE MEXICAN DESTROYER CONNECTS! THE MEXICAN DESTROYER CONNECTS!!! TLA GOES FOR THE COVER…
Audience: OOONNEEE!! TTTWWOOO!! TTHRRREEEEE!! …… FFFOOOOUURRR??? FIIIIIVVEEE?!?!?!
Stew-O: And TLA has now realised that the referee is out! TLA pushes Jamie away and TLA gets up and kicks the bottom rope out of anger! He had this match won, folks! TLA right now should be the new World Heavyweight Champion! TLA puts his hands on his hips and begins to think. The champion is down, the referee is down … and it looks like TLA has come up with some sort of idea. TLA climbs to the outside and begins to pace around the ring … OH NO!! TLA IS LOOKING UNDER THE RING NOW. WHAT HAS HE GOT IN MIND?!
Jake: MY GOD!!! ………… IT’S A SLEDGEHAMMER! THIS IS JAMIE O’HARA’S SIGNATURE WEAPON!! THE REFEREE IS OUT, STEW! ANY MEANS NECESSARY RIGHT?!
Stew-O: I guess but why ruin a perfectly good match by winning dirty?!
Jake: BY ANY. MEANS. NECESSARY!! TLA slides into the ring, and Jamie is using the ropes to get back to his feet on the opposite side. TLA is readying up with that sledgehammer. Jamie turns around … AND TLA CONNECTS RIGHT TO THE JAW!!! —
Stew-O: NO!!! JAMIE DUCKS UNDER IT, AND TLA LOSES GRIP OF THE SLEDGEHAMMER AND IT FALLS TO THE OUTSIDE! Jamie stands behind TLA before he turns around RIGHT INTO A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE STRAIGHT INTO THE FACE OF THE CHALLENGER! TLA STUMBLES DOWN TO HIS KNEES AS HE LEANS ON THE ROPES FROM THE SHOT WHEN JAMIE STEPS BACK AND LINES TLA UP FOR IT! HE RUSHES IN! IN EXCELSIS! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE RIGHT INTO THE SIDE OF TLA’S HEAD AS THE COMBINATION OF KNEES JUST LAID INTO THE KING OF THE POON PALACE WAS DEVASTATING! JAMIE THROWS TLA AND ROLLS HIM TOWARD THE CENTER OF THE RING WHILE A NEW REFEREE IS OUT! HE SLIDES INTO THE RING AS JAMIE HOOKS THE LEG! COVER! COVER!
Referee: OOOONNNEEEE!!! TTTTWWWWOOOOOO!!! TTTHHHRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin plays to a big ovation as Jamie O’Hara rises to his feet and holds his arms in the air. The referee hands him the World Championship…)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner … AND STILL … THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION … JAAAAMMIIIEEEE OOOOO’HAAAARRRRAAAA!!!
Stew-O: What an incredible affair between these two men! They both came out here tonight in Brooklyn and put their hearts on the line! All to be named the EAW World Champion, but tonight, Jamie O’Hara retains his belt and is going into Pain For Pride X YOUR champion!
Jake: What a performance! I am a pretty narcissistic man but I will come out and say that both men put on an amazing match, but in the end, the man standing tall is THE SAINT OF VALIANCE … JAMIE O’HARAAAA!!!!
(“Last Kings” by Tupac interrupts when we see Xavier Williams walks out with a smile on his face as he claps nonchalantly as he stops to the stage.)
Stew-O: THERE’S HIS OPPONENT! THE MAN THAT WON THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP CONTENDERSHIP MATCH HAS APPEARED TO CONGRATULATE HIS FUTURE OPPONENT! XAVIER WILLIAMS AND JAMIE O’HARA HAS FINALLY BEEN SET AND IT WILL HAPPEN AT PAIN FOR PRIDE X!
Jake Mercer: However, that’s all the time we have for you here at Burning Desire! I know that this is going to be an intense match, but you’ll have to wait until next week to see more! Until then… sayonara, chumps!
(Xavier Williams looks down and signals to his opponent that he will take the championship away from Jamie, who stands there with the championship on his shoulder exhausted from the match he has just put on, but still able to hold it high in the air in pride and the camera fades to black… )
