Mak: WHAT BETTER WAY TO INTRODUCE YOU TO SHOWDOWN’S HOMECOMING TO AMERICA THAN BY HAVING TWO FOREIGNERS DO IT?! WELCOME TO ANOTHER EXCITING EPISODE OF EAW’S LONGEST-RUNNING WEEKLY EPISODIC SERIES! THIS IS SHOWDOWN!
(Camera cuts to the sold out show as the fans erupt with cheers while “Let Em Know” continues to play… The camera pans all around the updated Showdown setting before transitioning to Mak and Masters sitting at their newly-placed table near the stage)
Masters: You can feel the electricity! Showdown is back and better than ever right here in the United States! What better place to have our Homecoming than the most famous arena in the country: MADISON SQUARE GARDEN!
Mak: Yeah, yeah, yeah, we’re all aware America is the be all end all. Just like so many stories I’ve heard about Masters, we’ve gone off prematurely and decided to celebrate America BEFORE we get to blow shit up with M-80’s! But it’s alright, we’ll make up for that by showcasing the greatest sport this nation has ever thought of: People kicking the shit out of each other with blunt objects! Tonight, there will be blood! There better! Championships on the line, rivalries coming to a close, and a shit ton of filler! I’m hyped!
Masters: I wish I could share your enthusiasm, Mak, but I’m afraid I can’t take enough coke to kill a small horse like you… Nonetheless, I’m very excited and that’s good enough! You said it best – We’ve got some prime matches that are ready to take place tonight and I absolutely cannot wait! Let’s start this Homecoming off the RIGHT way by crowning NEW EAW Unified Tag Team Champions!
Mak: Fuck yeah!

Vanessa swings again, this time connecting with a kick to the ribs! The InterWire Champion seems to have found himself more of a fight than he believed he would get here… Another kick to the ribs!

(“Subconscious” by The Score plays all throughout the arena as the Referee hands Dynamite Rain the Unified Tag Team Championships)
Announcer: The Winners of this contest by pinfall and NNNNNEEEEEEWWWWWW E-A-W UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…. DYNAMITE RAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNN!!!!
Masters: What a match! What a way to start off the night! These two teams just brought the heat and though the Lyndivias put up one HELL of a fight tonight, it was Dynamite Rain who were the ones that sealed the deal and captured the Unified Tag Team Championships for a second time here tonight!
Mak: Bullshit! Neither of these guys have the balls that the Lyndivias do! They should have been walking away with their tails firmly tucked between their legs instead of the Tag Team Championships just like we saw at No Regards! The Lyndivias should have won this, damn it!
Masters: Well they certainly put up a valiant effort for the Belts. Dynamite Rain were able to get the win and go down in history as only the SECOND team to ever win the Unified Tag Team Championships together twice! Congratulations to Dynamite Rain!
(Camera cuts to Mr. DEDEDE, having just arrived at the arena as he makes his way down a hallway and to his locker room)
DDD: What in the Hell…
(DEDEDE stops as he runs into a depressed Tomi Venus staring at a wall; dressed as Uncle Sam and holding a microphone in his hand)
DDD: You alive?
DDD: Well, uh, that costume suits you…. You.
(Tomi sighs and rolls his eyes)
DDD: Right, right… I knew that. Wait, Tomi Venus? I had no idea you were still hired here! You’re STILL under contract?
DDD: Well, at least you’re still getting paid though.
Tomi: They reduced my paychecks to the equivalent of a slow kid working for minimum wage at McDonalds…
DDD: Oh… Well, you’ve still got your family.
Tomi: Divorced after I tried to quit. She even got full custody of the kids…
Tomi: Ran away…
(DDD stands in silence, looking uncomfortable for several seconds as Tomi sighs again)
DDD: I see…
Tomi: Just go.
DDD: Yeah, I’m gonna go. But hey, chin up. Flashback’s been an Interviewer for YEARS now and he’s become essential to EAW.
(DDD walks away to his locker room as Tomi looks over to see Flashback in American-themed drag, singing into a mirror)
Flashback: I feel pretty! Oh so pretty! I feel pretty and witty and gaaayyyyyyyy–
(Flashback looks over to Tomi)
Flashback: UGH. In your dreams, loser!
(Flashback flips his hair and storms off as a depressed Tomi goes back to staring at a wall)
(Camera cuts backstage to Hades The Hellraiser, Nick Angel, and Venom preparing for their match later on tonight in their locker room)
Venom: I’m gonna take great satisfaction in putting the final nail in that old man’s coffin. He doesn’t know who the Hell he screwed with! Stripping the both of you of your Championships! I knew we should have kept going! I knew I should have nailed him with that chair again and again and again until he was nothing but a broken piece of what he once was, drowning in a pool of his own blood!
(Venom punches the wall)
Nick: Woah, woah, woah… Save all of that anger for tonight. DEDEDE’s gone and given us exactly what we need to finally keep his ass in the grave where he belongs. He’s pissed us off one too many times and he’s put himself in a match he has no chance in. Who’s gonna help him? WWEFan? Security?
Hades: Don’t expect to see any of them out there tonight.
(Nick and Venom turn to Hades)
Venom: What do you mean? DEDEDE’s as opportunistic as they come… He’ll definitely try to sneak his way out of this match by using his lowly followers to save his ass.
(Hades shakes his head as he shadow boxes)
Hades: I don’t see it happening. DEDEDE’s scum that need to be removed from the boot of the Renegades, but he’s got more pride than anyone I’ve ever seen. He doesn’t have anyone saving him tonight and I honestly think he’s stupid enough to come at the three of us, guns blazin’. It doesn’t matter. DEDEDE lived by his ways and if there’s ANY damn favor the Renegades will do for him now, it’s make sure he DIES by his ways! Tonight, we close the book on this! I’m tired of seeing Mr. DEDEDE’s face! I’m tired of listening to him ramble about the bullshit he put us through! The Renegades declared war on him a long, LONG time ago… And tonight, it ends.
Venom: Better send his boyfriend some flowers. I don’t think dear old Mr. DEDEDE’s gonna make it to Reckless Wiring.
(Venom laughs to himself before taking a swig of his beer)
(Camera cuts to highlights of the first ever Gold Rush Tournament with Lethal Consequences coming out victorious… The second annual Gold Rush Tournament with Y2Impact winning in the end…. And the third and previous Gold Rush Tournament with Hades The Hellraiser defeating Johnny Ventura to win)
(Camera cuts to Max A. Million at ringside)
Max: It’s that time again! The Finals of the prestigious Gold Rush Tournament is upon us! Here I have with me some of the men that were unable to make it to the end as they watch from the front row tonight.
(Max goes over to Christopher Corrupt, who stands up)
Max: Mr. Corrupt, is there any–
Corrupt: For the love of God, shut the Hell up. Do you honestly think I like this? Do you think I enjoy being forced to sit back and watch other, less-talented men fight in MY place? In case you’re forgetting, I was SCREWED out of my Gold Rush Tournament match. What happened? Did EAW Management take notice and say “Here Chris, we’ll put you back in the Tournament right where you belong! Keep the good work!”? What I got was a bunch of assholes looking the other way because when it all came down to it, they didn’t want someone like me making it this far. Right now, I’d be winning the Finals and I’d go on to be the very first man to actually WIN a World Championship after winning this Tournament and become one of the youngest to do just that. But I understand. EAW Management wants to push down out throats guys who’ve spent years and years in this company and just don’t have what it takes to be on top and STAY on top. Last week, I took matters into my own hands and I beat Wraith’s ass. Why? Because I’m the best young lion to ever step foot into this company and I’ll keep eating the competition until I get what I deserve! That’s what I think of all this!
(Corrupt pushes a startled Max away and sits back down)
Max: I see… Well, what are your thoughts on the Finals of this Tournament between Cy Henderson and Devan Dubian, Mr….
(Nemesis stands up, dressed in his usual attire as Max makes his way over to him in the front row)
Max: Do you ever change out of that?
Nemesis: Change? Change what? My skin? You want me to change my skin? This, Max… THIS is who-I-AM! I do not rely on making up little tricks and traits to a fictional character much like the rest of these fools, Max. This is one-hundred percent… Nemesis. What do I think of this Tournament? I believe it should be me where the broken down old horse known as Devan Dubian happens to be right now. I believe Devan Dubian’s victory last week can ONLY be chalked up to an anomaly… A phenomenon that only occurs every great once in a while. Devan Dubian’s win over Nemesis was a lightning strike… And lightning does not strike twice in the same place. I have chosen to watch him and I will take a great pleasure in watching him fail. The ride won’t stop there. I’ll continue to point and laugh as the look of disappointment fills his face and he comes to the grim realization that all of his efforts have been nothing but futile! I will find so much amusement in watching Devan find out that he’s a failure and will always be a failure! He will regret ever pinning me!
Max: Alright, alright… How about you?
(The crowd erupts with cheers as Max steps over to a sitting Heart Break Boy next to Cameron Ella Ava as they both stand up)
Max: I see The American Dream is here in attendance tonight. Any thoughts on the upcoming Gold Rush Tournament Finals?
HBB: Max… You sound surprised! Are you surprised The American Dream is here? We’re THE American Dream and Max, THIS is Showdown’s Homecoming to the United States of America!
HBB: We wouldn’t miss this for the World!
Max: Well, it’s just, I know you’ve been in the middle of some conflicts as of late.
HBB: Who, me? Cam? Hey, don’t you worry about it. Cameron and myself are two of the most gifted athletes on the face of the planet! The Heart Break Boy, Cameron Ella Ava, The American Dream lay down for absolutely NOBODY! Cyril Punnoose is just a tiny angry man that wants to take out all of his frustrations for being such a… Well, let’s face it, a mediocre General Manager. He’s become more of a babysitter by this point and I would say the kids are winning if he’s getting hung upside and set on fire like he’s in a real life Home Alone movie! Forget Cyril. He may be the reason I wasn’t able to advance to the Finals, but we’re here to have a good time and we’re excited to see how it goes down between Cy and Devan. As for who wins… It’s a tough call, but I think I’ve gotta give it to my guy, Devan.
Max: Thank you for joining me tonight and there you have it, straight from the mouths of the men who’ve competed in this hard-fought Tournament. Now it’s time to see who it is that has their hand raised in victory as the 2014 Gold Rush Tournament Winner!

(“Beware” by Death Grips plays all throughout the arena as the Referee raises Cy Henderson’s right hand in victory)
Announcer: The Winner of this contest by submission and winner of the 2014 Gold Rush Tournament!!…. CY HEEEEENNNNNDDDEERRRSSOONNNN!!!!
Mak: I’d be lying if I said I wanted either of them to win, but I guess congratulations to Cy…
Masters: Who are you kidding? Cy worked hard for this huge win tonight! Some of his wins were controversial, yes, but you know those were out of his hands and he still managed to get a good, clean win tonight over the very talented Devan Dubian. Cy Henderson has just punched his ticket to the Grand Rampage as he’ll be challenging either Jacob Senn, Tyler Parker, or Mikado Sekaiichi! We’ll find out at the end of the night! Congratulations to Cy Henderson!
(Camera cuts backstage to Mr. DEDEDE taping up his wrists in his locker room with a look of determination on his face… DDD finishes taping and tests it out before he takes his leave through the locker room door)
???: I’ve got something I wanna say to you.
(DEDEDE stops dead in his tracks as he exits the locker room to see Tyler Parker leaning against a wall; dressed in street clothes and his National Extreme Championship on his right shoulder)
DDD: Been a while.
Tyler: I don’t wanna look at you any longer than I have to, so I’ll get to the point: I want to know what it is you plan to do about what Sekaiichi did to the World Heavyweight Championship.
Tyler: Now stop what you’re doing there. Take what it is you were about to say and forget about it. I don’t want you interfering anymore than you already have. This is MY business. You know why he destroyed that Championship? You know why he took it that far and destroyed the thing that meant the most to me? He did it all because you stuck your nose where it didn’t belong! I could have handled it! I don’t give a damn if you’re thinking of stripping him of the Titles like you did to the Renegades or what it is you plan on doing, but I don’t care. I can beat him. I WILL beat him. Tonight, I’m gonna become the National Extreme Champion and World Heavyweight Champion again and you aren’t gonna stop me. If you’ve got a problem with that… Well, we can pick up where we left off at Shock Value.
(Tyler steps forward to get face to face with DEDEDE… DEDEDE chuckles as he and Tyler stare down)
DDD: I put you through a lot of shit, Tyler. You think I’d throw all that hard work away just like that? He’s obsessed with ending me and you beat my ass at Shock Value. I’ve got all the confidence in the World that you’ll win tonight. As hard as it’ll be for you to believe it, I believe in you. You go settle YOUR business… And I’ll settle mine.
(DEDEDE and Tyler continue to stare down for a few moments before DEDEDE takes his leave)
(Camera cuts backstage to Tomi Venus dressed as Uncle Sam with a mic in his hand as Showdown returns from commercial)
Tomi: And so Dynamite Rain are two-time Unified Tag Team Champions… Cy Henderson is the 2014 Gold Rush Tournament winner, I guess… My guest–
???: Your guest…
(Camera pans over to Jacob Senn in his ring attire)
Jacob: Your guest is the next Heavyweight Champion of the World. Something someone like you shouldn’t even be allowed to utter. I’ve spent too damn long wasting away; playing games with the likes of jokes such as Zack Crash, Brian Daniels, and Tyler Parker. I’m tired of this round about bullshit. Tonight, I put an end to every single person that has doubted Jacob Senn and everything he stands for. Tonight, I beat Tyler Parker AGAIN and I put Sekaiichi back into irrelevancy where he belongs. I’m going to make Sekaiichi regret deforming MY World’s Championship! I’m going to make Tyler wish he had never stuck his nose into my business and slithered his way into what should have been MY World Championship match and mine alone! I hate having to waste time by standing here with the likes of some neverwas like Tomi Venus when I would be making history! I’ll bite the bullet and I’ll continue to wait until the bell has finally rung and I can unleash ALL of this pent up aggression I’ve accumulated over the course of these past few weeks… Just biding my time until I’m able to hurt these two men and finally… FINALLY… Take what belongs to me. After tonight, all of the screwjobs… The anger… The frustration… All of the being forced to the back of the line and the people I’ve went through just to get here… It’s going to be worth it. Tonight isn’t just a match. It isn’t just the match of my career. Tonight is the match of my life! MY LIFE! If I don’t win tonight, I might as well be dead! I refuse to walk out of this arena without that World Championship around my waist! Nobody’s stopping me! Tonight marks the beginning of the Era of Liberation… The Reign of Vengeance… The crowning of Jacob Senn: World… Heavyweight… Champion.
(Jacob takes his leave as Tomi looks on)

Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall and is a three-on-one HANDICAP MATCH!…. First, making their way to the ring…. They are the team of…. HADES THE HELLRAISER…. VENOM…. AND NICK ANGEL…. THE HOUSE! OF!! REEEEEENNNNNNEEEEEGGGGGAAADDDEEESSS!!!….
Masters: These three men don’t look like they came here to wrestle by any means! They look like they’re here for war and that might be EXACTLY what they’ll get! This association with Mr. DEDEDE has come full circle from the night after Mid-Summer Massacre, where the Renegades attempted to end the career of Methuselah and it’s been one heck of a roller coaster ever since…
(“Till I Collapse” by Eminem plays all throughout the arena as Mr. DEDEDE makes his way out to the stage in a sleeveless vest, a beanie, and red and black tights with “He who laughs last” on one leg and “… Laughs best” on the other leg; as well as a guitar in hand with barbed wire strings)
Announcer: And their opponent!…. Making his way to the ring…. From Fort Lauderdale, Florida!…. Weighing in at 240 pounds!…. “THE MASTER MANIPULATOR”…. MISTER DE! DE!! DDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!….
Mak: I don’t know if that’s DEDEDE, Methuselah, or Elmer-fucking-Fudd! All I know is that he’s wielding that ridiculous weapon he calls the Equalizer and it doesn’t look friendly in the least bit! DEDEDE’s in as he and the Renegades stare down! It’s come to this! Months upon months of betrayals, brawls, and alliances and it’s time for it to end in a river of blood! My body is ready!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Masters: DEDEDE WASTES NO TIME AS HE SWINGS AT THE RENEGADES WITH THAT EQUALIZER!! All three men bolt from the ring as that vicious weapon nearly connects! Hades, Venom, and Nick now surrounding DDD in the ring… DDD’s got that Equalizer in hand, but I’m not sure it amounts to much against three individuals who want to end his career… Hold on now.. Venom, Hades, and Nick all slowly closing in as they each take one side of the ring… All three get to the apron! DDD SWINGS FOR THE FENCES AT ALL THREE!

VENOM CHARGES FOR A BOOT TO THE SKULL! IT MISSES AS DDD CATCHES VENOM FROM BEHIND–SPILLING HIM OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE FRONT ROW WITH NICK! DDD turns his focus back to the now standing Hades The Hellraiser as both men stare down…
Masters: These two men have a vendetta unlike any other! They’ve been out for each other’s blood for quite some time and it looks like it’s about to finally culminate here tonight! HADES AND DDD CHARGE AT ONE ANOTHER!! BOTH MEN MEET EACH OTHER WITH AN ONSLAUGHT OF LEFTS AND RIGHTS!! BOTH MEN TRADING BLOWS! THEY’RE GOING AT IT! NEITHER MAN WANTING TO GIVE THE OTHER EVEN AN INCH!! HADES STOPS IT WITH A KNEE INTO THE GUT OF DDD! ANOTHER KNEE TO THE MID-SECTION! HADES SENDS DDD INTO THE STEPS!

VENOM GOES FLYING INTO BOTH HADES AND NICK!! ALL THREE RENEGADES DOWN!! DDD may have just saved himself! DDD’s back has to be killing him after taking that devastating spinebuster from Venom! DDD’s visibly in pain, but he knows he can’t let up on the attack! He knows he’s gotta keep going and completely forget trying to recuperate at all in this!

NOBODY MAY BE GETTING UP AFTER THAT ONE!
(Replay is shown in slow motion of Mr. DEDEDE’s plancha over the guardrail off the balcony and onto The House of Renegades)
Masters: Somehow, some way, Mr. DEDEDE finds a way to make my jaw fall to the floor! I don’t know if ANYONE in this match can continue after that! It looks like the only man showing life here is DEDEDE himself by some grace of God… The Referee trying to check on all four men and it looks like DDD’s gonna use that to his advantage by pulling himself up, clutching the clothes of the Official!

DDD’s speared his last spear! The Renegades are about to end him once and for all as Venom picks DDD up for a suplex… Nick catches the legs of DDD… NECKBREAKER/POWERBOMB COMBINATION!!!!

Referee: ONE!!!!!!!……. TWO!!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Till I Collapse” by Eminem plays all throughout the arena as the Referee raises the hand of Mr. DEDEDE)
Announcer: The Winner of this contest by pinfall!!…. MISTER DE! DE!! DDDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
Mak: What was that?! DEDEDE’s ass was saved at the end!
(The man in the motorcycle helmet makes his way up the ramp and quickly takes off the helmet to reveal Drastik with a smirk across his face)
Masters: I can’t believe what I’m seeing! Drastik helped DEDEDE? Why on Earth would he want to do that? These two men are sworn enemies!
Mak: You know what I think? I think Drastik wants to be the one who ends DEDEDE, NOT The House of Renegades! I hate to see the House of Renegades screwed over like they were, but I’ve gotta give props to Drastik for thinking that way. Had he allowed them to connect with that spike piledriver, there WOULD be no Reckless Wiring match nor would there be anymore Mr. DEDEDE!
Masters: I suppose that makes sense… Drastik better be careful who he crosses though. The House of Renegades aren’t ones to just take stuff like this sitting down… Nonetheless, congratulations to DEDEDE.
(Camera cuts backstage to Cy Henderson making his way through the backstage area following his Gold Rush Tournament victory)
Crew Member _#1: Congratulations, Cy!
Crew Member _#2: Hey, you deserve it, man.
???: That you do.
(Cy runs into a smiling Wraith)
Wraith: What did I tell you? You went and you conquered the Gold Rush Tournament. Cy, you’ve punched your ticket. You’re on your way to becoming the new World Heavyweight Champion at the Grand Rampage… And whether it be Jacob Senn… Tyler Parker… Or Mikado Sekaiichi, it doesn’t matter. It’s YOUR time. I told you that with me in your corner, you would get your Kingdom back and all you have to do by this point is take it. It’s all coming together. We’re coming up on the SEVENTH Pain For Pride event… And it’s not about any Cash In The Vault Ladder match… It’s not about an Answers World Championship match and it sure is NOT about Mr. DEDEDE versus Sekaiichi… Cy, it’s about you and I for the World Heavyweight Championship. Headlining Pain For Pride as we were meant to… You’re on your way to making it happen on your side and I plan on delivering as well. I’ve just been informed that I have officially qualified for the 2014 Grand Rampage match. I’ll see you at Pain For Pride.
(Wraith smiles and begins to take his leave, only to be stopped by Cy)
Cy: You know… I’m completely fine with that. You and me at Pain For Pride? World Heavyweight Championship? I welcome it. I don’t plan on losing at the Grand Rampage, but you… Don’t get cocky. I think we know how that worked out for Kevin.
(Cy walks off as Wraith looks on)
(Camera cuts to the feet of an unknown man… The camera pans up further and further until it stops on the face of Mikado Sekaiichi with a snide grin)
Mikado: Seven days ago, I told the World that I am no World Champion… But a King. I believe it’s time that I breathe life into those words. There are two men knocking upon my door; looking to usurp their way to my Throne. Two men that are filled to the brim with hatred for what I’ve gone and done to their prized crown jewel. Like everyone else, they will fall before their Mikado. They will bow at my feet and they will WORSHIP me… And eventually, come to thank me for throwing that trinket to the fire. Though, it’s not as if all of that gold went to waste. After all… Every King needs a crown.
(Mikado Sekaiichi raises his right hand to reveal a crown clutched in it; visibly made from the melted-down gold of the World Heavyweight Championship)
(Camera cuts back to Masters and Mak at ringside)
Masters: I… I’m genuinely appalled at this man, Mikado Sekaiichi. He’s taken hostage the most prestigious Championship in this company and melted it down into a crown?!
Mak: Well, it’s not like he was just gonna throw the gold away! He’s far more reasonable than that! You need to look at it this way: Sekaiichi is completely right about how much the term “World Champion” has been whored out; used and abused! He did everyone a favor by destroying that Belt and turning it into a beautiful crown… Not like I ever held the stupid Title anyway. Not my problem.
Masters: Well I hope Sekaiichi knows he’s made an enemy out of EVERYONE. Coming up next is his chance to put up or shut up. No Agents of Extreme can help him here. Sekaiichi has to put his World Championship… Crown.. On the line against Jacob Senn and Tyler Parker and you can guarantee they’ll put everything on the line to take what they both believe belongs to them!
(“The Pride” by Five Finger Death Punch plays all throughout the arena as Jacob Senn makes his way out to the stage in a custom black and purple hooded jacket with “VENGEANCE IS MINE” on the back as purple pyro explodes across the stage)
Announcer: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL AND IS FOR THE E-A-W HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WOOORRLLDD!!…. First, making his way to the ring…. From Chicago, Illinois!…. HE IS “THE VENGEFUL VANQUISHER”…. JACOB SEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNN!!!….
Mak: A former Elite Champion! Unified Tag Team Champion! Jacob Senn has a golden opportunity to walk out tonight as a full-fledged Triple Crown Champion if he can finally go the distance and capture the World Heavyweight Championship! Senn has a unequaled determination, but I don’t know if it’s enough to overcome a man such as Mikado Sekaiichi.
(“Lies” by Evanescence plays all throughout the arena as Tyler Parker makes his way out to the stage in a white and gold trench coat and the National Extreme Championship around his waist)
Announcer: Next, making his way to the ring…. From Syracuse, New York!…. Weighing in at 223 pounds!…. HE IS THE REIGNING E-A-W NATIONAL EXTREME CHAMPION…. “THE LIEGE OF LIGHT”, TYLER PAAAAARRRRRRKKKKKKEEEERRRRRR!!!….
Masters: Tyler Parker has been thirst for his own vengeance here tonight after Mikado Sekaiichi cashed in his King of Extreme World Title shot at Reasonable Doubt. Tyler was added to this contest tonight and he’s taken it as if it’s life or death. He feels he MUST get back his World Championship tonight and put this reign of Sekaiichi to death before it gets any bigger.
“ALL HAIL THE KING!”
(“Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold plays all throughout the arena as a litter vehicle – golden-colored and labeled with the Japanese symbol for King – is carried out by the Agents of Extreme)
Announcer: And lastly, making his way to the ring…. From Las Vegas, Nevada!…. Weighing in at 237 pounds!…. HE IS THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING E-A-W WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!…. THE UNDISPUTED KING OF EXTREME, MIKADO SEK-AI-IIIIIIIICCCCCCCHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIII!!!….
(Mikado Sekaiichi steps out from the litter; dressed in golden attire and carrying his new World Heavyweight Championship-made Crown as he places it on his head and commands the Agents of Extreme to leave)
Mak: If anyone had two braincells to rub together, they would be standing on their feet right now and giving this man an ovation unlike any other! How can you not get behind someone so merciless and yet so confident? There’s a reason this man is the Undisputed King of Extreme! A reason why he’s the World Heavyweight Champion! There a reason why his name translates to “King Best in the World”!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Masters: The bell has officially rung; this triple threat match to determine the World Heavyweight Champion is underway as all three men stare down with one another… Hold on… Jacob and Tyler seem to both have a common enemy here and it’s Sekaiichi! Sekaiichi’s having none of it as he backs up.. Tyler and Jacob make a move, but Sekaiichi immediately bolts to the outside! The LAST thing you want is to be double-teamed in a triple threat contest! Nobody wants to be the odd man out! Hold on–Tyler and Jacob drop down and roll to the outside to surround Sekaiichi! Sekaiichi looks like he wasn’t expecting that! SEKAIICHI MAKES A BREAK FOR THE CROWD!! TYLER AND JACOB RUSH IN AND IMMEDIATELY PULL SEKAIICHI AWAY FROM THE BARRICADE AND BOMBARD HIM WITH A STORM OF SHOTS!! TYLER AND JACOB THROW SEKAIICHI BACK, SPINE-FIRST INTO THE RING APRON! You can read the pain across the face of Sekaiichi as both men have him exactly where they want him… KICK OFF THE CHEST FROM JACOB! Gun-shot like kick connecting! Tyler Parker now with a knife-edge chop to the chest of Sekaiichi! Kick to the chest from Jacob! Knife-edge chop from Tyler! KICK! CHOP! KICK! CHOP!! SEKAIICHI HAS BECOME A HUMAN VIDEO GAME HERE AND I DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH MORE HE CAN WITHSTAND!! Jacob finally puts a stop to that lethal onslaught as he grabs Sekaiichi… LOOK OUT! SEKAIICHI SENT SKULL-FIRST INTO THE SIDE OF THOSE STEEL STEPS!! I never would have thought I’d see the day in which Tyler Parker and Jacob Senn are united, but they’ve been brought together tonight to punish Sekaiichi!
Mak: Shut up! Quit talking like this is some fucking comeuppance for Mikado Sekaiichi! This man is being brutally assaulted out here by two incredibly bitter men! Look at this.. Sekaiichi doing all he can to pull himself up to his feet using the steps.. TYLER CHARGES IN–NO! TYLER NAILS SEKAIICHI WITH A BOOT TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL AS SEKAIICHI IS SENT FLIPPING OVER THE STEPS!! RING THE BELL ALREADY! END THIS MATCH! SEKAIICHI CAN’T DEFEND HIS CROWN UNDER THESE CONDITIONS! THIS IS MORE OF A GODDAMN HANDICAP MATCH THAN THE MATCH WAS SAW BEFORE THIS! Jacob Senn now… Oh no, Jacob dragging Sekaiichi up and he sends the World Champion hard into the edge of the Spanish announce table! Sekaiichi being rammed gut-first into that table! Jacob immediately drives Sekaiichi’s skull into the cover of the table! This is sickening! If there’s anything you should be getting over-dramatic about, Masters, it’s the absolutely disgusting two-on-one we’re watching! Tyler grabs Sekaiichi and whips him off and into the edge of the apron once again while Senn rips off the cover to that table… I don’t like this… I don’t like this one bit… Senn grabs a monitor… Tyler Irish whips Sekaiichi over to Senn–SENN NAILS SEKAIICHI WITH THAT MONITOR!! MONITOR OFF THE FACE OF MIKADO SEKAIICHI!! THEY CAN’T TREAT THEIR KING LIKE THIS! Sekaiichi still somehow on his feet, but he looks out of it as all Hell! TYLER GRABS THE OTHER MONITOR AND CRACKS IT ACROSS THE SKULL OF SEKAIICHI NOW!! DAMN IT!
Masters: Sekaiichi’s been reduced to a mess thus far in this triple threat bout! Tyler Parker and Jacob Senn have almost all but guaranteed the World Title is coming home with one of them… Look at this–Blood now pouring down the face of Sekaiichi! That shot from the monitor busted the Champion open! Tyler and Senn making eye contact with one another… Oh boy, they seem to truly be on the same page here as both men drag a now bloodied Sekaiichi up.. Both men pulling him in! THEY’VE GOT HIM UP!! THEY’VE GOT HIM UP!! THROUGH THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE!!! DOUBLE-TEAM SUPLEX SENDS MIKADO SEKAIICHI THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE AND THERE IS NOTHING LEFT OF HIM! MIKADO SEKAIICHI HAS BEEN METICULOUSLY DESTROYED IN THIS CONTEST! THIS HAS QUICKLY BECOME A GLORIFIED ONE ON ONE MATCH AS THE WORLD CHAMPION IS RULED OUT OF THE EQUATION! Senn now… Oh no… It seems like they’re STILL not finished with the World Champion! Mikado Sekaiichi’s about to take even more punishment as Senn tells Tyler Parker something and Tyler now reaching down to pick up Sekaiichi from the shattered remains of that Spanish announce table! SENN DRIVES TYLER INTO THE BARRICADE! TYLER HEAD-FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! SENN GOING TO WORK ON TYLER PARKER NOW! LAYING INTO TYLER WITH SEVERAL MERCILESS STOMPS TO THE BODY AND SKULL!! SENN HAS TURNED ON HIS TEMPORARY PARTNER IN CRIME AND HE HAS NO REMORSE WHATSOEVER! SENN CAME HERE TO WIN THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
Mak: That’s the right attitude, but what he and Tyler have gone and down to poor Sekaiichi cannot be forgiven! Senn looking to cap it all off as he makes his way over to the Timekeeper’s booth and grabs a steel chair! Senn looking like he knows exactly what he’s doing as he sets his sights on the damaged Tyler Parker… This is gonna end badly for someone as Senn smacks the chair on the mat like he’s about to swing for a Goddamn Homerun! TYLER UP! SENN SWINGS WITH A SHOT TO THE SKULL!!! KICK TO THE GROIN!! TYLER PARKER JUST LEVELED JACOB SENN WITH A KICK TO THE GROIN TO STOP THAT ONCOMING CHAIR SHOT! TYLER GRABS SENN NOW! BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX AS SENN GOES OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE FRONT ROW!!! SENN MOMENTARILY TAKEN OUT OF THE EQUATION!! TYLER PARKER HAS A CHANCE TO WIN THIS, BUT DAMN IT! C’MON, SEKAIICHI! YOU’VE STILL GOT LIFE LEFT IN YOU! Tyler reaching down and dragging a bloodied Sekaiichi.. Oh boy… Sekaiichi looks like he just crawled out of a car crash! Sekaiichi’s a bloody mess! Tyler manages to lift Sekaiichi up to his feet and navigates him to the ring… Sekaiichi’s sent rolling in! TYLER PARKER SLIDES IN! LOOKING TO END IT HERE! NO–SEKAIICHI MANAGES TO ROLL HIMSELF BACK TO THE OUTSIDE! Tyler Parker looking visibly frustrated, but the good news is Sekaiichi’s still alive in this! He’s able to move! Tyler’s coming for him though as he rolls back to the outside… Poor Sekaiichi doing everything he possibly can to reach some sort of refuge here.. SEKAIICHI LOOKING TO JUMP THE BARRICADE! TYLER GRABS A HOLD OF HIM!
Masters: Sekaiichi being once again dragged back into this! Tyler Parker laying into Sekaiichi with unforgiving shots all over the body! Tyler sends Sekaiichi crashing into the apron! RUNNING DROPKICK OFF THE FACE OF SEKAIICHI FROM TYLER!! Sekaiichi has taken a great deal of punishment in this contest! He’s become a damn punching bag for his opponents! Tyler looking to end this as he sends Sekaiichi rolling back into the ring… Sekaiichi still moving; still trying to escape as he woozily tries to pull himself back up… Tyler’s in and he’s not letting the Champion go anywhere this time!

“ALL HAIL THE KING”
(“Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold plays all throughout the arena as the Referee hands Mikado Sekaiichi his World Heavyweight Championship crown)
Announcer: THE WINNER OF THIS CONTEST BY PINFALL AND STTTTTTTTIIIIIIIILLLLLLL E-A-W HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WOOORRLLDD….. MIKADO SEEEEKKKKKKAAAAAAAIIIIICCCCHHHHIIIIII!!!!
Mak: I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! THIS IS THE HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE! FINALLY, THERE IS JUSTICE IN THE WORLD! MIKADO SEKAIICHI PREVAILS! HE PREVAILS BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT! MIKADO SEKAIICHI OVERCOMES TWO OF THE TOUGHEST MEN TO HAVE EVER STEPPED INTO AN EAW RING AND HE IS STILL YOUR KING! STILL YOUR WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!! HAIL TO THE KIIIINNNNGGG! HAIL TO THE OOONNNEEEEEE! KNEEL TO THE CRROOOWWNNN!!
Masters: Alright, alright, alright… Sekaiichi DID actually manage to win this bout tonight on his own and what a heck of a bout it was! These men just left it all on the line! They pulled out all the stops! These three men just showed to everybody in the locker room why that World Heavyweight Championship IS the most important thing.. Even if it’s been reduced to a headpiece for Mikado Sekaiichi. I’m willing to give credit where credit is due: Sekaiichi proved a lot of people wrong tonight. Congratulations on his successful defense tonight.
Mak: You’re damn right he proved them wrong! Nobody’s stopping this King! NOBODY!
(“Beware” by Death Grips plays all throughout the arena as the crowd erupts with cheers)
Masters: Oh boy… As cliched as it is, I gotta say it: Business is about to pick up!
(Cy Henderson makes his way out to the stage and down to the ring as a bloody Mikado Sekaiichi tightly clutches his World Heavyweight Championship Crown in his hands in the nearest corner of the ring)
Mak: Get this asshole out of Sekaiichi’s ring! This is Sekaiichi’s night!
Masters: Cy Henderson is just sending Sekaiichi a clear and powerful message… He MAY have survived tonight… But it could very well be a different story come the Grand Rampage when Sekaiichi puts that Crown on the line against this man! The man he’s rivaled with off and on since he became this Sekaiichi persona! It may very well all come to a head at the 2014 Grand Rampage when Mikado Sekaiichi defends his World Heavyweight Championship against the Gold Rush Tournament winner: Cy Henderson! That’s all for tonight, ladies and gentlemen, but thank you for joining us for Showdown’s Homecoming event! Signing off for Mak, I’m Masters, and we’ll see YOU next week on Showdown!
