(The camera fades inside the arena as “”Rainmaker” (Dominion 2017 Mix) by Yonosuke Kitamura hits to a huge eruption from the crowd. Carlos Rosso steps onto the stage in a suit. He looks down at his waist and acknowledges the absence of the Answers World Championship. He continues down the ramp, a mean, angry look on his face.
Stew: AND HERE HE IS, THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION CARLOS ROSSO MAKING HIS RETURN TO DYNASTY AFTER THE HEINOUS BEATDOWN FROM DARKANE A FEW WEEKS BACK!!
(He snatches a microphone from ringside and walks with purpose into the ring.)
Carlos Rosso: Cut the damn music.
(The music abruptly stops as Carlos firmly plants himself in the center of the ring.)
Carlos Rosso: First off, let me make one thing very clear. I don’t give a damn if you cheer me, and I don’t give a damn if you boo me, I don’t want your pity or your sympathy. When I re-entered the locker room earlier today, I saw people clapping. Stagehands, members of the roster, people I didn’t even know, cheering and applauding as if it was some miracle that I’m able to walk… but let me ask you all something, really, truthfully… and people in the production trucks, get the censors ready… WHAT THE FUCK is applause gonna do? Clapping ain’t gonna fix things, it ain’t gonna get my title back, and apparently neither is our General Manager.
Carlos Rosso: StarrStan after I won the Answers World Championship, I met you in your office and you made one promise to me… things were gonna be better here on Dynasty than they ever were on Voltage. Let’s look into that claim… I was never beaten within an inch of my life on Voltage, I never had a championship stolen from me on Voltage, nope… only here on Dynasty. AND that all happened my first week on the job.
Carlos Rosso: You lack the ability to create order.
Carlos Rosso: Don’t believe me? What did our General Manager say when he opened up the show last week? He wants people to impress him, how?… *shrugging his shoulders*… no one knows. So you wanna be impressed but you don’t tell people how to impress, you know what that leads to? Chaos, dysfunction… anarchy. You live and breathe for it EVEN IF IT MEANS putting your entire roster at risk. I’m gonna need more than empty threats thrown from you Starr, you created this environment that Darkane is allowed to thrive in. For that reason Starr, I partially blame you for what happened to me earlier this month. YOU created this, so YOU fix it.
Carlos Rosso: Get my title back. Get Darkane back so I can kick his ass. FIX YOUR GODDAMN SHOW or I promise you I’ll pack my bags and head right back to where I came from.
(Carlos Rosso slams the microphone into mat as the music picks back up and he angrily exits the ring, the camera pans over to the ringside area where we’re met with a close-up of Stew-O)
Stew: A very powerful and ominous message delivered from Carlos Rosso to our General Manager StarrStan. “Fix things or I’m outta here”. Well folks, welcome to another edition of Friday Night Dynasty… you know the deal, Stew-O here joined by my broadcast partner…
(The camera zooms out to show not Jake Mercer but instead Talib Bari)
Stew: THE FORMER PROMOTER OF REVOLT PRO COMBAT, TALIB BARI!!
Talib Bari: EAW… DYNASTY… we bout to do it big. You know Stew you said it yourself, my whole career has been about promoting the PRODUCT, I’m alllllll about the product and right here on Friday Night Dynasty is where you’re gonna find the best PRODUCT in professional wrestling.
Stew: Jake Mercer was relieved of his duties last week after his verbal tirade on our General Manager, and I gotta say Talib, I’m already liking you a little bit better. NOW… TO THE ACTION!!
(“Filthy” by Justin Timberlake blast from the speakers, as the entire arena blacks out. Dollar shaped lights appear all over the arena and a spotlight hovers over the entrance stage. Garrison Cooper Jr. then walks through the curtains wearing his usual entrance gear and a Gucci scarf, he walks down the ramp and scoffs at fans before rolling into the ring. Once he reaches the ring he poses around and then waits for his opponent.)
Stephie Love: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! Introducing first, from all over the World! Weighing in at 216 POOUNDSS!!!!……HE IS “GREATNESS GALORE” GARRISOOOONN COOOOPPEERR JUNNIIOOORRRR!!!!!!
Stew-O: Up next we have a Triple Threat contest between three of Dynasty’s rising stars, as here comes the unmistakable Garrison Cooper Jr, CEO of The Cooper Corporation and now in EAW. Talib, how in the hell do you get all of these businessmen to wrestle here?
Talib Bari: WE GET MONEY! Word to Wayne.
(The opening words of the chorus belonging to Of Mice and Men’s “Unbreakable” rip through the sound system, with the instrumentation kicking in almost immediately after the vocalist begins his words. All attention focuses on the stage and it wasn’t but seconds later before Noah Reigner pushed through the curtain and walked onto the stage. Evelyn Ridley would soon join, stopping just behind him and standing to his right side.)
Stephie Love: AND HIS OPPONENTS, FIRST! From Seattle, Washington! Weighing in at 184 POOOUNDSS!!!!!……HE IS “THE ASSAULT RIFLE” NOOOAAHHHHH REIIIIIGNNNEEEEERRR!!!!!!
Talib Bari: This man has gotta be one of my favorite new debutants from last week, Noah Reigner is a vicious dude who takes no prisoners and wants nothing more than to win and be recognized, which is all you could really ask for, right? He made his mission clear last Dynasty when he grabbed that mic and talked about how he would take it all, and right now I can’t wait to see him in action!
Stew-O: Why are you always yelling?
Talib Bari: WHAT?!
(“Who I Am” by Avery Watts plays from the arena speakers as Nate Faber steps out from the backstage area, raising his arm up before heading down to the ring with purpose.)
Stephie Love: rom Chicago, Illinois! Weighing in at 265 POOUNDSSS!!!!!……HE IS “THE MAN OF 1,000 STRIKES” NAAAATTEEEEEE FAAAAAABBBBEEEEERRRR!!!
Stew-O: A seasoned and well-experienced veteran who probably knows this ring like the back of his hand, and is cleary the more experienced of the three in the ring. However, past successes does not equate to new glory, so we’ll see if he’s still got some juice left in the tank.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: The bell has rung and we see the three men in the ring ready to duke it out to see who will come out on top! Garrison Cooper Jr., Nate Faber, and Noah Reigner in Triple Threat action tonight, as we see all three men staring at each other, waiting for one of them to make the first move…..AND HERE’S NATE FABER FIRING OFF WITH THE FIRST SHOT! HEADBUTT TO GARRISON! NO! Cooper Jr. blocks the headbutt, then throws a right hand straight into the jaw of Faber! Nate reels backwards slightly from that hit, and Garrison shoots another right hand! But Nate blocks that shot this time, holding Cooper Jr.’s arm in the air…..AND HE SENDS THE YOUNG TYCOON DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A LOUD KNIFE-EDGED CHOP STRAIGHT INTO HIS CHEST! JEEZ! That sound echoed throughout the room as Garrison lets out a groan of pain from that shot! There won’t be any technical moves being used in this match, that’s for sure! Nate steps forward to Garrison who’s trying to recover – BUT FROM BEHIND! NOAH REIGNER CONNECTS WITH A VIOLENT SHOOT KICK TO THE SPINE OF FABER! Noah using a great strategy here tonight as he comes in at the best moment to seize the opportunity and attack Faber.
Talib Bari: Yeah boiii!!!! Faber down on to one knee now, but Noah still isn’t done with his attack! ANOTHER SHOOT KICK TO THE CHEST SENDS NATE DOWN TO THE MAT, BUT FABER’S STILL TRYING TO FIGHT BACK AS HE SITS BACK UP! Reigner sees this and rebounds off the ropes…..AND FLIES BACK WITH A SLIDING FOREARM SMASH TO NATE’S JAW! FABER GOT KNOCKED THE HELL OUT WITH THAT FOREARM AND NOAH TAKES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE FIRST COVER IN THE MATCH!
Talib Bari: AND A KICK OUT BY FABER! He ain’t done yet Noah, you still have a lot of work before you can put him down. Nate’s a veteran in this business and has won many titles over the course of his career, so you can expect that a couple shots like that aren’t going to be enough to put him down for the three count. Noah rises back to his feet while Nate grabs his chest in pain from the earlier shoot kicks. Reigner moves forward to the downed Nate, grabbing him by his hair and lifting him back up to a vertical base….NOAH QUICKLY HOOKS THE ARMS OF FABER IN A FULL NELSON POSITION! QUICK RELEASE DRAGON SUPLEX – NOPE! Nate blocks the feet of Noah before he could send him down with what could have been a devastating dragon suplex, as Faber sends a stiff elbow to the side of Noah’s face! A second elbow! A third elbow! A fourth, and Noah lets go of the waistlock and moves backward, stunned from the elbows by Faber! FABER RUSHES TOWARDS NOAH! BUT WAIT! GARRISON COOPER JR.! GARRISON OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK STRAIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF NATE FABER, SENDING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! HELL YEAH!
Stew-O: Garrison appears to have fully recovered from Nate’s earlier assault, and is now taking the time to strike once more as he grabs the stunned Noah by the head…..AND BRINGS HIM DOWN WITH A VICIOUS SNAP SUPLEX, RATTLING THE SPINE OF REIGNER! Garrison is back in this match but he is not done with his assault, as he places Noah’s head against the turnbuckle, and runs back to the opposite one! He comes back….AND OH MY GOD HE CONNECTS WITH A BRUTAL FACEWASH TO THE SIDE OF NOAH’S FACE! HE RUBBED HIS BOOT AGAINST HIS SKIN, BUT HE ISN’T DONE AS HE RUNS BACK AND COMES BACK WITH YET ANOTHER FACEWASH! HE RUNS BACK AGAIN! A THIRD FACEWASH! ANOTHER REBOUND! A FOURTH FACEWASH! ANOTHER ONE! A FIFTH FACEWASH, and now I think Garrison is done with his assault! That’s the series of numerous facewashes he calls Facewash Galore! Clearly a despised and dirty move but he wants to win, and he doesn’t care how he does it along as he manages to walk out tonight the victor! OH! AND TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY, HE’S STEPPING HIS FOOT ACROSS THE THROAT OF NOAH, CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF HIM! The referee can’t break him off because it’s a triple threat match, so Garrison can do this for as long as he wants! This is sick!
Talib Bari: Nah, it’s smart! He’s using everything to gain him the advantage tonight and while I may not agree with his methods, you gotta respect a man who’s willing to do anything to take the victory. Garrison finally steps back from Noah, letting his foot drop and giving Reigner some breathing room, but it looks like that that assault was just a warm-up for the end! Garrison picks Noah by the head, lifting him back up to a standing position! Oh boy, this could spell disaster for Noah if he doesn’t find a way out of this! COOPER JR. GRABS REIGNER BY THE WRIST, OH BOY I THINK I KNOW WHERE THIS COULD GO! HE’S LOOKING FOR THAT GIP: GREATNESS IN PROGRESS LARIAT TO FINISH OFF NOAH AND SEAL THE DEAL FOR THIS MATCH! HE SPINS REIGNER AROUND……GREATNESS IN PROGRESS!!!!
Stew-O: NOAH REIGNER DUCKS THE LARIAT BEFORE IT COULD CONNECT, BUT GARRISON’S MOMENTUM PROPELS HIM FORWARD – INTO A RECOVERING NATE FABER! OH MY! GARRISON COOPER JR. INADVERTENTLY TOOK OUT AN UNEXPECTED TARGET WITH HIS GIP LARIAT, BUT I DON’T THINK FABER IS GONNA WAKE UP FROM THAT HIT! Garrison looking bewildered at Faber, seeing that wasn’t his intended target as he turns around – ROGUE CUTTER! ROGUE CUTTER BY NOAH REIGNER SENDING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! That jumping Ace Crusher by Noah Reigner taking Garrison down, as The Assault Rifle looks to end it right here and right now by lifting Garrison back up….HE HOOKS HIS ARMS AND LEGS! HERE WE GO! THIS MIGHT BE IT AS NOAH FINISHES GARRISON WITH THE HARD GOODBYE! YES! THE SWINGING LEG HOOK FIREMAN’S CARRY SLAM SENDS GARRISON DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A THUD AND REASSERTION THAT NOAH IS THE WINNER! AND REIGNER GOES FOR THE PIN!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Unbreakable” by Of Mice and Men plays all throughout the arena to a warm reaction from the crowd as Noah Reigner rises back up to his feet and raises his arms in victory.)
Stephie Love: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER…….NOOAAAHHHHH REIIIIGNNEEEEEEERRRRRR!!!!!
Talib Bari: HE DONE IT! HE DONE IT BOYS! MY BOY NOAH REIGNER GOT THE W AND NOW HE’S GONNA TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL! WHAT A GREAT MATCH!
Stew-O: I guess your enthusiasm right now is definitely earned, because Noah just picked up a huge debut victory tonight over two other prospects in Dynasty! If he keeps up work like what we saw tonight, then maybe Noah’s words last week may eventually become true for all of EAW! Deathmatch Noah Reigner is the victor tonight, despite a commendable effort from everyone else in the match, it was him who managed to stand tall after the dust settled.
Stephie Love: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL!
( ‘Timebomb’ by Blackfoot and Racid starts playing as the crowd gets up on their feet, cheering the Big Baker Bhampion, who looks happy after the victory last week.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, from Inglis, Manitoba, Canada, weighing in at 250 pounds, “The Hardcore Hero”, Shakeeeer Joneeesssss.
Talib: The Big Baker Bhampion, I’ve been waiting for so long to finally be on the commentary on one of his matches, it’s a dream come true.
Mercer: I’m sure you have partner, I’m sure you have. Shaker got an impressive victory last week, but can he do it again?
( ‘No scared’ by One OK Rock starts playing and Yusuke Yamashita gets on the stage with a guitar on his hands, with Shaker Jones’ Big Baker Bhampionship painted on it. He walks down the stage, climbs the steel steps and smashes the guitar against the ring post looking at Shaker with full confidence.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Tokyo, Japan, weighing in at 231 pounds, “The Headliner” Yusuke Yamashitaaaaaa.
Talib: What a genius, taunting Shaker like that, this man must be really smart and confident.
Mercer: Yusuke is a veteran in this business, a rockstar from Japan, he is looking to make waves in the US.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Talib: The match has started, with both Yusuke and Shaker making circles around eachother, not rushing the offense. Shaker makes the first step trying to hit Yusuke with a shot to the face, but Yusuke is too quick and manages to get out, Yusuke turns around and now unloading with forearms to the face of Shaker. This guy is a quick, strong and smart. Yusuke now setting him up for a DDT, but Shaker is able to get out of that.
Mercer: Shaker pushes Yusuke away, leaning on the ropes, looking surprised from the abilities of Yusuke and Yusuke taunting Shaker. Shaker has seen enough and CONNECTS WITH A CLOTHESLINE ON YUSUKE DROPING HIM DOWN. SHAKER NOW GOES FOR THE QUICK PIN.
Mercer: Kickout by Yusuke, but now Yusuke rolls Shaker and goes for the pin.
Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!!
Mercer: And another kickout by Shaker this time.
Talib: Look at the face of Shaker, he looks really impressed by Yusuke, and the Japanese man remains cold like ice. I think he has a lot of potential to become one of the bests in the business. Shaker gets on his feet and Yusuke with a chop to the chest. Again, again, again. ANOTHER ONE! Shaker is now on the corner as Yusuke goes to the opposite corner charging towards Shaker and there is the knee to the jaw. But Yamashita is not done yet AS HE CONNECTS WITH A DDT PLANTING SHAKER DOWN. YUSUKE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREEE-
Mercer: Oh wow, Shaker managed to get his shoulder up someway somehow. I though Yusuke got the win but no, Shaker still in this match. Yusuke gets up trying to get the crowd pumped up as the fans cheer him, but at the same time Shaker is up, Yusuke now charging towards Shaker looking for that flying forearm, BUT SHAKER WITH AN ELBOW TO THE FACE OF YUSUKE. MY GOD THAT MUST HURT. SHAKER NOW WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE OF YUSUKE AND YUSUKE IS DOWN. Look at Shaker’s face he looks ready to finish this match. Shaker now grabbing Yusuke looking for the SHAKER MAKER! IT CONNECTS! THE SHAKER MAKER CONNECTS AND NOW SHAKER GOES FOR THE COVER!
Ref: ONE!!! TWOO!!! THREE-
Talib: YAMASHITA GOT THE FOOT TO THE ROPE! HE GOT THE FOOT TO THE ROPE! HE IS STILL IN THIS MATCH! Shaker now looking pissed and amazed at the same time. What does it take to put Yusuke down?! Shaker sends Yusuke to the corner, runs towards him for that forearm splash, but Yusuke gets out of the way causing Shaker to hit hard on the post. YUSUKE NOW WITH A SNAPMARE FLIPPING SHAKER, CHARGING WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE! SHAKER IS DOWN MOTIONLESS! YAMASHITA GETS SHAKER UP! ONE HIT WONDER! THE ONE HIT WONDER CONNECTS! SHAKER IS DOWN! SHAKER IS DOWN! THE COVER!
ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THREEEE!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘‘No Scared’ by One OK Rock plays again, getting mixed reactions from the crowd and the referee putting his hand up.)
Stephie Love: Your winner… YUSSSSUUUKKEEEEE YAAAAMMMAAAASHHHIIITTTAA!!
Mercer: Yamashita picks up the victory, his first here on Dynasty!
Talib: This kid… excuse me, far from a kid really but still new to us, he’s even more impressive in person. He’s gonna be BIG TIME!
(Culture Crisis advertisement is aired)
(The camera fades backstage to The Dragon Slayers talking to each other in their locker room)
Mike: We beat a Hall of Famer.
Sam: And a former Grand Rampage winner.
Mike: In… about a minute.
Sam: Less than a minute.
Mike: But who cares?
Sam: Certainly not StarrStan.
Sam: “Impress me.”
Mike: DID WE NOT IMPRESS LAST WEEK?
Sam: We did more than that, we shocked.
Mike: Shocked? I wasn’t shocked.
Sam: I wasn’t shocked either.
Mike: BUT WE SHOCKED EVERYONE ELSE! WE, THE DRAGON SLAYERS DEFEATED TYLER PARKER AND JOHNNY VENTURA IN LESS THAN A MINUTE, AND WHAT DO WE GET FOR IT?
Sam: Not a damn thing.
Mike: You know what StarrStan? Fuc–
Sam: :whoa:!!! Chill, you’re not Carlos Rosso, he can get away with it, if you say it they’re just gonna fire your ass… maybe mine too.
Mike: … STARRSTAN… SCREW YOU!!
Sam: He doesn’t even have anything for us tonight, let’s get outta here.
(Both men grab their bags and head for the door as the camera fades out)
(Camera fades to the ring)
(“California Love” by Tupac feat. Dr. Dre hits as Cody Marshall approaches the stage. He unstraps the Hardcore Champion and lifts it high above his head before continuing down the ramp)
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Approaching the ring first, from Hollywood, California… weighing in at 305 pounds… HE IS THE EAW HARDCORE CHAMPION… COOODDDDDYYYYYYYY MAAARRRRRRRSSSHHHAAAALLL!!
Stew: It’s been a bit rough for Cody Marshall since he captured the Hardcore Championship at The Grand Rampage. But tonight he has an opportunity to make things right again, although I must say… it will be a tall task as he takes on the incomparable Woogieman!
(“If Ya Smell” by Adam Massacre hits as the crowd explodes. Woogieman steps onto the stage, taking in the energy radiating off the crowd. He then makes his way down to the ring)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Jacksonville, Florida… weighing in at 260 pounds… WOOOOGGGGIEEEEEEMMMMAAANNNN!!
Bari: THE MAN… THE MYTH… THE LEGEND… WOOGIEMAN!! WOW!! THIS IS MY FIRST TIME EXPERIENCING THIS LIFE AND UP CLOSE, IT’S UNBELIEVABLE!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew: Here we go! CODY MARSHALL OUT OF THE GATE QUICK TAKING WOOGIEMAN DOWN WITH A BIG BOOT! Woogieman scrambles to his feet, backing himself up into the corner… BUT HERE COMES CODY MARSHALL CHARGING TOWARDS HIM, LOOKING FOR A SPLASH, THROWING HIS ENTIRE 305 POUND BODYWEIGHT AT THE FORMER BIG BHRIS BHAMPION… BUT IT’S AVOIDED!! WOOGIEMAN STEPS ASIDE AND MARSHALL CONNECTS WITH NOTHING BUT TURNBUCKLE!! AND NOW WOOGIEMAN BEGINS FIRING WITH RIGHTS AND LEFTS, A RAPID PACE… CODY MARSHALL SWINGS WITH ONE OF HIS OWN BUT IT MISSES WILDLY!! WOOGIEMAN COCKS HIS FIST BACK AND DELIVERS A HAYMAKER TO THE JAW OF CODY MARSHALL, ALMOST CAUSING HIM TO FLY OUT OF THE RING, AND LEMME TELL YOU… IF CODY MARSHALL WAS ANY LESSER OF A MAN, HE WOULD HAVE DONE JUST THAT, THAT BIG FRAME THE ONLY THING KEEPING HIM IN!!
Bari: Woogieman grabs Marshall by the arm, pulling him into the center of the ring and whipping him into the ropes… WOOGIEMAN DUCKS HIS HEAD… BUT CODY MARSHALL SENDS HIS KNEE RIGHT INTO THE HEAD, KNOCKING WOOGIE RIGHT OFF HIS FEET… JESUS CHRIST WHAT AN IMPACT THAT WAS!!
Stew: Woogieman is slow to his feet, that knee absolutely ROCKED him and you can tell he’s struggling to regain his bearings, he reaches out towards the ropes to pull himself up but Cody Marshall is right there, aiding him up… pulling him into the center of the ring… AND LIFTING HIM UP FOR A VERTICAL SUPLEX… AND IT CONNECTS!! MARSHALL INTO THE PIN!!
ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!! WOOGIEMAN KICKS OUT!!
Bari: No time wasted here, Marshall gets back to his feet and brings Woogieman with him… HE HOOKS HIM LOOKING FOR A SECOND SUPLEX BUT WOOGIEMAN ISN’T GONNA LET THE SECOND ONE CONNECT!! SHOTS, RIGHT INTO THE RIBS OF THE HARDCORE CHAMPION WHO HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO RELEASE WOOGIEMAN… BACKING UP NOW… AND WOOGIEMAN COMES CHARGING… A CLOTHESLINE THAT TAKES MARSHALL OVER THE ROPES AND ONTO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR!! Woogieman follows, grabbing Marshall… AND A KICK TO THE MID-SECTION… YOU WONDER IF THIS IS GONNA BE AN AREA THAT WOOGIEMAN STARTS TO TARGET HERE!! You’d know better than I do Stew, does Marshall have a rib injury?
Stew: Not to my knowledge but maybe Woogieman is aware of something that we aren’t… A SECOND KICK TO THE MID-SECTION… NOW WHIPPING HIM INTO THE STAIRS… NO!! CODY MARSHALL REVERSES IT!! AND INSTEAD WOOGIEMAN GOES CAREENING INTO THOSE STEEL STEPS!! FLIPPING OVER THEM AND LANDING ON THE OTHER SIDE, MY GOD THE POWER OF CODY MARSHALL!! Woogieman’s head popping up over the ring steps here as he tries to make it back to his feet… he rolls himself into the ring, Cody Marshall on the other end does the same thing and he’s the first to his feet… MEANING BAD NEWS FOR WOOGIEMAN AS HE STRUGGLES TO MAKE IT BACK TO HIS!! CODY MARSHALL RUSHES TOWARDS HIM… AGAIN THROWING HIS BODY TOWARDS WOOGIEMAN, THIS TIME IT CONNECTS AND IT SANDWICHES HIM IN THE CORNER!!
Bari: BUT LOOK AT MARSHALL!! HE COMES OUT OF THE CORNER GRABBING HIS MID-SECTION, HE’S DEFINITELY HAVING PROBLEMS HERE AND IF WOOGIEMAN CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT, HE HAS A REAL SHOT AT THROWING OFF THE HARDCORE CHAMPION HERE!!
Stew: BUT I DON’T THINK HE’S GONNA GET THAT CHANCE!! CODY MARSHALL PULLS HIM OUT OF THE CORNER AND THROWS HIM HIGH OVER HIS SHOULDERS!!… GOING FOR THE DIRECTOR’S CUT!!

(“California Love” hits as Cody Marshall rolls out of the ring)
Stephie Love: Your winner… CODDDDYYYYY MARRRRRRSSSSSHHHAAAALLL!!
(Cody Marshall grabs a steel chair from ringside and brings it into the ring with him, smacking it into the canvas, waiting for Woogieman to make it back to his feet)
Stew: CODY MARSHALL WITH THE VICTORY TONIGHT BUT IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE’S DONE YET!! A VICTORY ISN’T GONNA BE ENOUGH FOR HIM, HE WANTS TO MAKE A STATEMENT!! WOOGIEMAN IS BACK TO HIS FEET… HE TURNS AROUND…
Bari: WOOGIE WATCH OUT BROTHER!!
(“Timebomb” by Black & Rancid hits as Shaker Jones runs down the ramp)
Stew: WHAT THE HELL?! THAT’S SHAKER JONES… AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S COMING OUT TO HELP WOOGIEMAN!!
Bari: THE DREAM TEAM!!
(Shaker Jones slides into the ring and stands next to Woogieman, both men now staring down Cody Marshall)
Bari: SHAKER JONES VS. WOOGIEMAN IS ONE OF THE MOST HISTORIC, ICONIC RIVALRIES IN THE HISTORY OF EAW… AND NOW THEY STAND SIDE BY SIDE AS A UNIT… THIS IS INCREDIBLE STEW!!… A MOMENT FOR THE AGES!!
(After a few seconds, Cody Marshall backs down. Rolling out of the ring and demanding his Hardcore Championship. He grabs it and takes it up the ramp with him as he keeps his eyes locked on Woogieman and Shaker Jones)
(We fade backstage and see Sebastian Monroe walking with purpose down a hallway)
Stew: What an odd couple of weeks it’s been for this man, Sebastian Monroe. Two weeks in a row, two attempts at a handshake with Tyler Parker, two failures. What’s it all about? We find out NEXT!
(The camera returns and we see Sebastian Monroe standing in the ring as Dynasty’s theme song is played in the background. He’s pacing around the ring with a microphone in his hand and being met with a negative response from the crowd. He brings the microphone up to his mouth as the music starts to die down)
Sebastian Monroe: Tyler Parker, oh boy, Tyler Parker.
Sebastian Monroe: Tyler, this new incarnation of you… you pride yourself on being a man of respect no? Of honor and integrity? At least that’s what it seemed like to me a couple of weeks back when you returned on Dynasty. This was a different Tyler Parker, a more humbled Tyler Parker… a Tyler Parker who wanted to do right. But I was sadly proven wrong. You’re still as arrogant and narcissistic as you’ve always been. So stuck up that you couldn’t even reply to a handshake. So self-important you didn’t even have the common courtesy to say no. You just looked at me, as if I was some sort of freakish alien.
Sebastian Monroe: I could understand your hesitation, I could understand denial… but flat out ignoring me? That I don’t understand, Tyler. What are you really here for? What’s your deal? Your end game huh? It’s clear that this diffident, modest Tyler Parker is nothing but a front, you want something, more than the Answers World Championship, more than a match at Pain For Pride, no, no, no… I KNOW Tyler Parker.
Sebastian Monroe: You’re searching for something bigger, you’re looking for a purpose, a place in this new EAW. You won’t settle for just good, you you’re not gonna be satisfied with just great… YOU WANT TO BE THE BEST, YOU WANT YOUR NAME MENTIONED WITH THE LIKES OF DEDEDE AND IMPACT… WELL TYLER PARKER… THROUGH ME, YOU CAN ACHIEVE THAT LEVEL OF MASTERY THAT YOU’VE ALWAYS SO CRAVED. I CAN TURN YOU INTO THE GREATEST ELITIST THIS COMPANY HAS EVER SEEN! YOU WILL PROSPER LIKE NEVER BEFORE!
Sebastian Monroe: SO DESPITE YOUR RUDENESS TYLER, I’M GONNA SWALLOW MY PRIDE AND GIVE YOU ONE MORE CHANCE… JOIN ME!!
(Sebastian Monroe turns towards the entrance ramp and emphatically sticks out his hand looking for a handshake)
Sebastian Monroe: C’MON TYLER!! DON’T BE LIKE THIS, I CAN GET YOU EVERYTHING YOU’VE EVER WANTED!!
(More time passes and nothing happens, the grin on Monroe’s face slowly starts to fade)
(Monroe pulls his hand back. His eyes grow beaty, his face red, embarrassed, angry, he begins to shake, bringing the microphone back up)
Monroe: TYLER!! TYLER!!!!!!!
(But then the anger fades away, replaced with euphoria, the grin returns)
Monroe: Have it your way.
(Sebastian Monroe leaves the microphone in the ring and heads up the ramp, an unsettling smile on his face as the camera fades into a commercial)
(Camera fades back to the ring as we see Stephie Love standing with a microphone in hand)
Stephie: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for one fall!
(“Rise Up” by Saliva hits as Damon Diesel enters)
Stephie: Introducing first, from Orlando, Florida, weighing in at 202 pounds… DAAAAAMOOOOOONNNN DIEEEEEEEESSSSSELLLLLL!!!
(Damon Diesel walks out and stands still looking at the arena. He makes his way down to the ring high-fiving fans, enters the ring and climbs the top rope rising his hands up and pointing at random people in the crowd.)
Stew: here’s a young man looking to impress after taking a close loss last week. He showed how high his ring IQ is—
Bari: But that’s not enough when your opponent is better!
Stew: Well having watched that match live, I’d say on any given day it could’ve—
Bari: but it didn’t.
(“Kill Your Masters” by Run The Jewels hits as Shackleford makes his entrance)
Stephie: And his opponent, from Fratton Portsmouth in Hampshire, England, weighing in at 240 pounds… SHAAAAACKLLLLLEFOOOORRRRRD!!!
(Shackleford makes his way to the ring, pausing briefly to flip off a fan wearing a Damon Diesel shirt)
Bari: and here’s my pick to win tonight.
Stew: Shackleford is a true powerhouse. Physically dominating, he poses a real threat to Diesel here tonight. The referee looks ready to go!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew: Here we go. Shackleford wants to lock up, but Diesel wants to play it smart. He’s circling around, looking for his opening, hoping to chop the larger man down.
Bari: Looks like he’s scared to me. I recommend he go hard and fast and try to get the big guy off his game.
Stew: Damon looking to do just that as he shoots for the low takedown, trying to take the knees of Shackleford out, but the big man shoved him down and drops on top of him. Shackleford looking to beat on Diesel from the top, drops a few punches before lifting his opponent to his feet.
Bari: OHMYGOD! Shack Daddy just heaved Diesel up and onto his shoulders!!
Stew: Could be looking for that twisting Samoan drop, but the crafty Damon slips off in time, gaining some distance.
Bari: not for long! The big man rushes him!
Stew: but Damon slips out of the way as Shackleford runs abdomen first into the turnbuckle. Now—
Bari: DIESEL WITH A ROLL UP FROM BEHIND!!!
ONEEEE!!! No the big man kicks out!
Stew: Shackleford is rising to his feet, but Diesel sees an opportunity! Chop block to the back of the knee of Shackleford! Diesel looking to cut the big mans base away!
Bari: Smart strategy! Just like I recommended!
Stew: I don’t think he was listen—
Bari: Diesel is getting on the offense! He’s locking up the shoulder! Trying to take the big guys power away!
Stew: But Shackleford powers out! And now he’s lifting Diesel up… OOH!! THE POWER IN THAT SIDEWALK SLAM!!!
Bari: He’s not done yet! Pulling Diesel up… throws him into the ropes!
Stew: Shackleford is looking for the Clothesline from Hell! Lined up!
Bari: Damon ducks under it though, bounding off the other ropes!
Stew: BIG DROPKICK TO SHACKLEFORD’S FACE!! DIESEL LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE! HE BOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AGAIN… ANOTHER BIG DROPKICK! THE BIG MAN IS DOWN!!
Bari: DIESEL IS TRYING TO LOCK IN THE “LEG LOCK” ON SHACK DADDY’S ANKLE!!
Stew: HE LOCKS IT IN! SHACKLEFORD IS IN MAJOR PAIN!! CAN HE HOLD OUT?!?
Bari: He’s not far from the ropes… the big man has to use that upper body strength!
Stew: That he does! He’s dragging himself! BUT DIESEL GRAPEVINES HIS LEGS AROUND SHACKLEFORDS MASSIVE LEG!!! The big man has to drag all that dead weight! He’s in real pain!
Bari: He’s moving…. almost there…
Stew: And Shackleford forces the rope break, but has the damage been done? He’s holding his ankle, clearly in serious pain.
Bari: Diesel is getting out of the ring… what’s he doing?
Stew: he reaches in and grabs Shackleford’s injured leg… OHHH!! HE SMASHES IT HARD AGAINST THE RING POST!!! He doesn’t want Shackleford to be able to get back to his feet! He’s back in the ring now, looking to make quick work of Shackleford. Reaches down to lock the submission back in—
Bari: Shack hits him with his good leg! He sends Diesel stumbling halfway across the ring with the force of that kick! Diesel looks stunned that Shack has this much left in him!
Stew: Shackleford is not an easy man to keep down! He’s showing his strength and resilience here tonight! Diesel charges! Gunning for the leg!
Bari: WHAT THE HELL?!? SHACKLEFORD SCOOPS DIESEL MID CHARGE AND UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!!! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE SHACK DADDY DRIVER!!! THIS IS IT!!!
Stew: He lifts Damon for the slam! NO! The injured leg gave out and Shackleford collapses to one knee! Diesel lands hard but rebounds straight up!
Stew: WHAT A VICIOUS KICK STRAIGHT TO THE INJURED LEG! Shackleford is in real pain here folks!
Bari: LOOK AT DIESEL! LOOKING TO TIE SHACK UP IN “THE HERO” SUBMISSION! NO WAY SHACK CAN HANDLE ALL THAT PRESSURE ON HIS BAD LEG AND POWER OUT WITH HIS BACK TWISTED UP!
Stew: The legs are in position, if Diesel rolls him over…
Bari: ITS LOCKED IN!!! SHACK HAS NOWHERE TO GO!! HES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!
Stew: SHACKLEFORD IS LOOKING FIR SOMETHING, ANYTHING TO BREAK THE HOLD!!! HES SCREAMING IN PAIN!!
Bari: THIS PAIN THRESHOLD IS SUPER HUMAN!!!
Stew: HIS HAND IS UP!!! WILL HE… HE DOES! SHACKLEFORD TAPS OUT TO THE SUBMISSION SPECIALIST!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Rise Up” by Saliva hits as Diesel turn to celebrate and play to the fans)
Stephie: Here is your winner, by submission… DAAAAAMONNNNNNN DIIIEEEEESELLLLLLLL!!!!
Bari: That’s why I picked Diesel to win this match. Years of training plus his excellent in ring IQ. Look at him celebrating this win! You earned it, Damon!
Stew: But earlier you said—
Bari: OHH!! SHACK WITH A SNEAK ATTACK FROM BEHIND!!! He is not happy with Diesel trying to damage his leg!
Stew: Still limping, but he towers over Diesel now, just an ominous man. He’s grabbed Diesel by the hair… OH WHAT POWER! He just hoists Diesel onto his shoulders like nothing!! Balancing on his good leg…
Bari: SHACK DADDY DRIVER WITH AUTHORITY!!! ALL OFF OF ONE LEG!!! DID YOU SEE HOW HARD DAMON LANDED??
Stew: Diesel is not moving! We may need to get medical out here! Shackleford just glaring a hole through Diesel’s motionless body!
(Diesel drops down and rolls out of the ring. He limps his way up the ramp, pausing only to look at the Damon Diesel fan he had flipped off earlier, who was now returning the favor)
Bari: What a statement made by the Shack Daddy here tonight! This is not a man to be trifled with!

Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Ryde, Isle of Wight, England… weighing in at 225 pounds… REGGGGINNNNALLLDDDDD DAMMMPSSSSSHAWWWW THEEE THIRRRRDDDDDD!!
Bari: Right and hey look… I’m not tryna get Mercer’d or anything… but Dampshaw won a match to become the #1 Contender for the REVOLT! Light Heavyweight Championship, I mean goddamn I booked that match. Now he’s facing the REVOLT! Light Heavyweight Champion… in a non-title match… HOW IS THAT FAIR?! I gotta question Starr there.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew: HERE WE GO… BOTH MEN MEET IN THE CENTER OF THE RING AND LOCK UP!! DAMPSHAW AGGRESSIVE AT THE ONSET, PERHAPS TRYING TO RELEASE SOME ANGER… BUT HURRICANE HAWK CALM AND COOL IS ABLE TO MANEUVER BEHIND DAMPSHAW… HE LIFTS HIM UP, LOOKING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX BUT DAMPSHAW GETS ELBOWS UP AND SENDS HIM INTO THE HEAD… HAWK STUMBLES BACKWARDS AND NOW HERE COMES DAMPSHAW… KNEE TO THE MID-SECTION!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… BUT NO!! DAMPSHAW GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!
Stew: Dampshaw is getting back to his feet but he’s slow… you can tell that he was rocked by that punch and I must admit… I didn’t think Hawk had that in him! Dampshaw grabs onto the ropes… AND NOW HERE COMES HAWK AGAIN… BUT DAMPSHAW DUCKS HIS HEAD… AND OH MY GOD!! HURRICANE HAWK WENT FLYING OVER THE ROPES LANDING ON THE OUTSIDE… RIGHT ON TOP OF MS. EXTREME!! A NASTY, HORRIBLE COLLISION AND BOTH ARE DOWN… MS. EXTREME OBVIOUSLY GETTING THE WORST OF IT, SHE MAY NEED SOME HELP HERE!! HURRICANE HAWK ROLLS OFF OF HER, AND I THINK HE’S REALIZING WHAT JUST HAPPENED!! HE HOLDS HIS RIBS AS HE MAKES IT BACK TO HIS FEET… A REFEREE HAS COME DOWN THE RAMP TO CHECK ON MS. EXTREME WHO’S STILL DOWN AFTER THAT COLLISION!!
Talib Bari: The reality is starting to settle in for Hurricane Hawk and you can tell he’s been taken back by it! He slowly gets back to his feet, he keeps his eyes on Ms. Extreme as he re-enters the ring… AND OH NO!! DAMPSHAW!! DAMPSHAW!! FROM BEHIND… THE FAMILY NAME!! THE FAMILY NAME!! HE GOT IT!!

Stephie Love: Your winner… REEGGGGINNNALLDDDDD DAMMMMPSSSSHAAAWWWWW THE THIRRRRDDD!!
Stew: JUST LIKE THAT IT’S OVER, DAMPSHAW PICKS UP THE VICTORY OVER HURRICANE HAWK!!
(He approaches the commentary table and mouths something to Talib Bari before walking up the ramp, celebrating his victory)
Stew: What was that about?
Bari: Forget it, it was nothing.
Bari: Alright… he says he wishes I was still the boss.
(The camera pans back over to Ms. Extreme who is finally getting back to his feet. Hawk joins her and helps her up the ramp as the camera fades out)
(Camera fades backstage to StarrStan’s office. He looks horrible, unkempt suit, chin and head stubble, bags under his eyes. He’s stuck in a trance, gazing into nothing but comes to after there’s a knock on his door)
Starr: … Come in.
(The camera pans to the other side of the room to show Maximus Grier. StarrStan barely acknowledges him, giving him a slight wave)
Grier: What’s wrong with you?
Starr: This transition… isn’t going as easy as I thought it would.
Grier: Alright, I’ll make this short and sweet then. You wanna know why this isn’t going easy, pal? Because people don’t know what the hell you want from them. “Impress”… what does that mean?! What do you want from your roster?! Look Starr, I want to impress you, I want that main event… I want all of it. BUT YOU HAVE TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO TO GET THAT?!
(Starr doesn’t respond)
Grier: Tell me, tell me and I’ll do it. I’ll impress you more than any of the scrubs on this roster should. Tell me what I need to do to be your Answers World Champion.
(Again Starr doesn’t respond… until he does)
Starr: I don’t know.
Grier: YOU DON’T KNOW?
(This seems to infuriate StarrStan. He shoves his laptop back and stands up)
Starr: YEAH, I DON’T KNOW!! I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WANTED WHEN I TOLD MY ROSTER TO IMPRESS ME. I’VE BEEN MORE IMPRESSED WITH SOME IN LOSSES THAN I HAVE OTHERS IN WINS… AND NOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO ALRIGHT?! I HAVE THIS HUGE GODDAMN MESS ON MY HANDS AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO TO FIX IT!
Grier: At least you admit incompetence.
Starr: FINE. I’M INCOMPETENT, I’M THE WORST GM THIS SHOW HAS EVER SEEN, I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M DOING!!
(Starr stops himself, slouching over and putting his hands on his desk, out of breath)
Starr: Just… get out, get out please. You have a match to prepare for.
Grier: Right, I have a match… and I guess I’m gonna impress you in that match. Even though I still don’t really know what that means. But for your sake Starr, and I truly mean this… I hope you find out, because you’re not well.
(Grier leaves the frame as StarrStan slouches back in his chair and lets out a scream before the camera fades back into the arena)
