( EAW Intro plays )
(The opening beat of “Ready” by Raphael Lake plays as we cut to the busy streets of New York City in the night time, where the lights are shining brightly, the sidewalks are filled with people hastening to get where they need to go and the cars are speeding by as screeching and the honking of horns can be heard all around. As the cameras move throughout the city and we see building upon building, Fighting Spirit 2 posters seem to be littered on each one of them with there being six stylized posters, each one showing a specific match on the card, highlighting Mr. DEDEDE vs Liam Catterson, Tag Team Warfare, Eclipse vs Erebos, The Open Fight Gauntlet and Tyler Parker vs Ares Vendetta. With all of them having been shown, we brush past the buildings and the camera angle goes upward, pointing toward a billboard with the show logo on it before fading over to the front of the Marquee Night Club where a limo drives by, stopping near the entrance as loads of media reps and interviewers crowd at the car door. They feverishly knock at it, waiting for an answer as someone finally opens it: a focused Mr. DEDEDE as he leaves the limo with his belongings and the AWC hung over his shoulder.)
Reporter #1: Oh, there you are! Sir! Sir! Can we just get a moment of your time?
Reporter _#2: Tonight’s a big night for Voltage, tell us about how you’re feeling heading into Fighting Spirit —
(Their voices begin to be drowned out as Mr. DEDEDE takes his hand and pushes the microphones away from his face. He walks past the interviewers and makes his way toward the special Elitist only entrance, walking by the fans waiting for the doors to open. As he does so the beat transitions to the lyrics of the song.)
“Have you ever seen…a man not afraid to die? Gave his life for a dream, born hustler so the game conceived.”
(The newly rechristened Erebos is seen standing on top of the building opposite to the club, sporting red face paint as Nightmare is perched up next to him, watching on in silence.)
“A caged beast, but now I’m free. How can you blame me, I was born for this, the game chose me!”
(Inside a dark area of the club Eclipse Diemos sits in a chair in conference with his fellow Sanatorium members while holding his King of Elite Crown, looking at it for possibly the last time before turning to ONI and Maero and letting out a confident laugh.)
“I would take over the world but yo I dream bigger! Never satisfied, I’m trying to be richer!”
(Liam Catterson is already settled in, wearing his ring gear as he tapes his fists and laces up his boots.)
“I don’t get ready, I stay ready!”
(We see Nick, Beretta and Phoenix Winterborn as they do some pre-show training, working up to the last minute before cutting to Ryan Young relaxing with Hunter Bishop by his side in the club bar, taking a sip from his glass with a smile on his face. Before showing us Hexa-Gun in an all black ensemble as they head to the club.)
“We are self built, self made, self sustained, self seekers, selfish — I’m trying to get paid!”
(Both Ares Vendetta and Tyler Parker shown walking around New York in street attire, ready to meet up for their fight outside of the building.)
“You and I, we are not the same ; you were born, I was made!”
(As we reach the climax of the video package, we see Carson Ramsay, Aria Jaxon, Cailin Dillon and Ryan Savage in Ashten Cross’ office, not saying a word as they wait and think about what’s ahead.)
“Was on the bottom now we running this, grind hard when the load gets heavy….”
(They soon look up after hearing the door open and a smile shows up on the face of Ashten as we see Starr Stan in ring shape and prepared for action.)
(As this goes on, on the outside of the club HRDO comes out and opens up the doors in place of the busy Ashten Cross.)
HRDO: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Marquee Fight Club ; Welcome to FIGHTING SPIRIT 2!!!!!!
(The crowd lets out a huge cheer as they file into the building and we then switch over to live footage of the renovated and sold out Marquee Fight Club. Fans are standing in the balcony and sits have been added near the ring, with enough room saved near the stairway for the wrestlers to make their entrance. The camera then settles over to WWEFan and Kawajai.)
WWEFan: Thank you for joining us EAW faithful, we are LIVE from New York City in The Marquee Night Club, or as it will be known tonight, The Marquee FIGHT Club for Voltage’s Supershow: Fighting Spirit 2!
Kawajai: People have been buzzing about this show for weeks now, last year’s Fighting Spirit had some of the best wrestling I’ve seen in quite some time and this year’s looks like it will deliver the same quality as well with matches like Mr. DEDEDE vs Liam Catterson for the Answers World Championship and the Pure title being defended in J.D. Damon vs Kenny Drake!
WWEFan: There will be more than just straight up wrestling in this show though, we’re in New York City, Kawa! They want down and dirty fights and that’s what we’re delivering to them tonight, whether it be a personal feud such as Erebos vs Eclipse or the all or nothing tag team warfare between Hexa-Gun and Team Cross, not to mention the Unsanctioned Street Fight set to happen tonight between Tyler Parker and Ares Vendetta!
Kawajai: This card is looking must see to me and I just can’t wait any longer, no more talking, no more anticipation, let’s get right into this show with the Open Fight Gauntlet, time for the announcer to take it away!
(We head over to ringside as the announcer is standing by ready to call the match.)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is The Open Fight Gauntlet match! Two competitors will start this match off and after every fall the next entrant will come in until there is only one Elitist remaining and that person will be declared the winner!
(“Run This Town” by Jay Z, Kanye West and Rihanna starts to play as Lucas Johnson heads toward the ring, high fiving and interacting with the crowd before getting between the ropes.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first…..making his way to the ring from Atlanta, Georgia….weighing in at 215 pounds…..He is “The Wrestling Machine”…….LUCCAAAASSSS JOHNSSSOOONNNNN!!!!!!
WWEFan: Lucas Johnson has been quick to establish a connection with the fans and It’s not surprising. Lucas has shown that he is a natural at this sport, making a quick and easy transition from being one of the best athletes in his NCAA wrestling career to going professional and stacking up wins left and right! Lucas could very easily become one of our top prospects and he can make it happen tonight by winning this gauntlet and gaining the special prize that is being offered!
(Before his theme song hits Hamau Koa makes his way down to the stage with Mickey Luciano, stopping just before the ramp. He points his hands upwards before proceeding to do the Haka war dance. As he finishes the dance he slams his fist into the ground and “Here Comes The Boom” by Nelly plays.)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, making his way to the ring from the Isles of Samoa…….weighing in at 260 pounds…..he is “The Bastard of Samoa”……HAMAAAAUUUU KOOOOAAAAA!!!!!
Kawajai: Lucas has shown himself to be promising but he’s going to have a tough task ahead of him, this guy right here, he is a BEAST! A brooding savage from Samoa, a silent assassin managed by the devious business man Mickey Luciano. If I were Lucas I’d be careful because at just the snap of a finger from Mickey, the switch can be turned off for Hamau and this would be over for him! This gauntlet could favor a guy like Hamau, a monster such as him doesn’t seem like the type to get tired!
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: This match has begun as Lucas Johnson and Hamau Koa waste no time in approaching each other for a collar and elbow tie up! These two big horses are locking horns as Lucas Johnson is able to match power with Hamau! The evenly matched situation going on between the two is only momentarily though as Lucas Johnson is starting to sink down! Hamau breaks free with a big push and then swings at Lucas, only for his quicker opponent to duck under it and get behind him for a waist lock, looking to take the legs out from under him in a takedown!
Kawajai: Hamau though, he nails Lucas right in the jaw with the elbow as Lucas’s grip weakens, allowing Hamau to turn around and then slam Lucas’ face right into his knee! Short arm clothesline by Hamau as a follow up! Lucas is not going to lay down, he gets right back up but as he reaches a knee Hamau gets him with a boot to the side of the head! Lucas puts up his hands before he can fall face first onto the canvas! He thinks to himself while he shakes the cobwebs and then gets up! OH! Hamau knocks him down by hitting the ropes and running straight into him like a freight train!
WWEFan: Hamau is dominating right now and Lucas Johnson is in a bad way as he is having trouble keeping his breathe as he lays on his back, looking up at the lights! Hamau again backs away into the ropes as his partner Mickey Luciano is shouting instructions at ringside, wanting him to make quick work of this opponent so they can carry on with the rest of the gauntlet! JUMPING SPLASH ONTO THE DOWNED LUCAS JOHNSON! Lucas moves out of the way just in time, causing Hamau to fall down right on his chest! Hamau holds his ribs but only for what seems to be a second before trying to brush it off and get back up! Lucas makes sure to not let this window of opportunity go to waste!
Kawajai: Running knee lift to the side of the head! Hamau shoots up, shaken but still on his feet! Lucas runs the ropes! Shoulder block! Hamau stands tall so Lucas goes with a second try! Another shoulder block! Hamau still remains unmoved! Lucas turns it up! A hard lariat with a sound that rings throughout the club! Lucas shows some impressive ability for a guy his size as he leaps for a dropkick right to the jaw! This move is the one that leaves Hamau off balance! Lucas Johnson goes for a follow up — but Hamau stops him with a hand around Lucas’ throat, possibly looking for a chokeslam, but Lucas nails him in the gut and charges for him! Hamau catches him and looks to sling him on his shoulder in a powerslam!
WWEFan: Lucas Johnson wriggles out of it though and pushes Hamau into the ropes before falling back! Lucas has Hamau off of his feet and it’s in a roll up!
Ring Announcer: HAMAU KOA HAS BEEN ELIMINATED!
Kawajai: The blue chipper Lucas Johnson with a great first elimination as he looks toward the next challenge and – WOAAAH! HAMAU KOA WITH A GIANT KNEE TO THE BACK! Lucas leans against the ropes to keep himself up and turns around – OH! MANILOA’S KISS! THE CHARGING SUPERMAN PUNCH! Lucas Johnson falls over as Hamau rolls out of the ring and grabs a chair! Mickey is shouting even more instructions, if Hamau is going to go out early he’s still going to make sure his client makes a statement!
WWEFan: Hamau watches as Lucas gets up, AND THEN SWINGS FOR THE FENCES WITH A CHAIR SHOT TO THE SKULL! Mickey tells Hamau that’s enough as Hamau drops the chair and walks off with him by his side! Lucas is down after the opening round but still has plenty more opponents to go, how will he even make it?
(“Wanderlust” by Every Time I Die plays as Ryan Young takes his time coming down the stairs of the club with his bodyguard Hunter Bishop by his side. Once he makes his way toward ringside he gestures for Hunter to walk off and watch from the back before entering the ring.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing the next participant in the Open Fight Gauntlet…..RYAAAANNN YOUUNNGGG!!!!
WWEFan: Ryan Young is ready to face Lucas Johnson but there’s not exactly much left as Lucas’ brain has been scrambled by that chair shot. He crawls to Ryan Young, pulling himself up and leaning against Ryan looking to swing, but Ryan just smugly moves out of the way and leaves Lucas to fall down! Kick to the gut! Lucas Johnson is coughing up a storm as Ryan then takes his boot and rests it against Lucas’ hand, teasing him with it as he taps his skull repeatedly — BEFORE JUMPING UP AND STOMPING ON IT! “CASHIN CHECKS” It connects as Ryan drops down and covers! OH COME ON!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEE!!!!!
Ring Announcer: Lucas Johnson has been eliminated!
(Breaking Benjamin – Break the Silence hits as Beretta quickly walks across the balcony of the club. He then runs down the stairs and into the ring where Ryan Young is waiting as he disposes of the body of Lucas.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing the next participant in the Open Fight Gauntlet… BERRETTTAAAA!
Kawajai: Beretta is ready to go, meanwhile Ryan Young has already taken care of Lucas Johnson. Can he do the same here while he’s still pretty fresh?
WWEFan: Beretta makes the first move as he throws a right hand at Ryan Young. Young blocks it and delivers a swift kick to the midsection of Beretta. Young now irish whips Beretta into a nearby corner. Young immediately follows up with a running corner clothesline! Young steps back as Beretta begins to falter…. BUT BERETTA ATTEMPTS A COMEBACK AS HE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER TO HIT A HUGE CLOTHESLINE OF HIS OWN! Beretta gets to his feet and he stalks Young as he begins to get up himself! BERETTA GRABS RYAN AND GOES FOR W SWINGING NECK BREAKER! YOUNG SWINGS THROUGH IT! HE PUSHES BERETTA A FEW FEET BACK AND HITS A PICTURE PERFECT DROP KICK DIRECTLY TO THE JAW!
Kawajai: Beretta returns to his feet once again but Beretta quickly cuts him down with a chop block! Young now pulls Beretta up and throws him into the corner! Young now unloads on him in the corner with a series of knife edge chops! Beretta tries to step out of the corner but Young puts him in his place and goes back to work with those knife edge chops! Young is being absolutely relentless in this assault! He now steps back and hits yet another knife edge chop! I could hear that all the way over here! Beretta’s chest is glowing red. Young now steps back and hits another picture perfect drop kick directly to the jaw!
WWEFan: Beretta collapses to the mat after that assault by Ryan Young! Ryan now walks to the apron and climbs the top rope! HE LEAPS AND GOES FOR A DIVING ELBOW DROP AIMING RIGHT AT BERETTA’S HEAD! BERETTA QUICKLY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! HE GETS TO HIS FEET AS YOUNG GETS UP CLUTCHING HIS ELBOW IN PAIN! BERETTA NOW GOES TO THE ROPES AND SPRINGBOARDS… A SPRINGBOARD CROSS BODY TAKES DOWN RYAN YOUNG! BERETTA QUICKLY GETS TO HIS FEET AS YOUNG GETS TO HIS FEET AS WELL AND BERETTA CONNECTS WITH A SWINGING NECK BREAKER!
Kawajai: Young stumble to his feet. Beretta is licking his chops as he awaits his chance to strike again. BERETTA EXPLODES AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK! YOUNG IS KNOCKED BACK INTO A NEARBY CORNER AS HE BOUNCES RIGHT OFF THE TURNBUCKLE! Beretta gets back up and catches Young as he’s propelled forward from his impact into the turnbuckle. He pulls Ryan in and hits a northern lights suplex! Beretta now takes a few steps back as he encourages Ryan to return to his feet! Ryan does just that and Beretta charges! THE BULLET! BERETTA GOES FOR THE RUNNING SPEAR! YOUNG MANAGES TO SIDESTEP IT! YOUNG NOW BRING BERETTA DOWN AGAIN WITH ANOTHER CHOP BLOCK!
WWEFan: Beretta falls down in pain. Young takes a moment to recover as Beretta begins to make his way back up but that leg is slowing him down. Beretta is to one knee and Young takes no time in going to finish him off! CURB STOMP! YOUNG GOES FOR THE WIN BUT BERETTA JUMPS BACKWARDS! YOUNG MISSES AND TRIES TO RECOVER HIMSELF BUT BERETTA ROLLS HIM UP FROM BEHIND!
ONEEEEE! TWOOO! THREEEEE!
Kawjai: BERETTA ADVANCES!
Ring Announcer: Ryan Young has been eliminated!
(Fire It Up – Thousand Foot Krutch begins to play as Nick Angel walks out onto the stage. He walks down the stairs and into the ring as Beretta returns to his feet.)
RA: The next participant in the open Fight Gauntlet… NNICKKKK ANGEELLLLL!
Kawajai: Beretta advanced over Ryan Young but he didn’t emerge unscathed, he needs to watch out.
WWEFan: Nick Angel knows this as he goes after his opponent! Nick charges and Beretta tries to catch Nick with a clothesline! Nick ducks and bounces off the ropes. Beretta quickly turns around and the first thing he see is Nick Angel flying towards him with a flying leg lariat! Nick Angel gives Beretta no chance at recovery as he picks him back up and connects with a European uppercut! Nick now grabs Beretta and brings him down with a Russian leg sweep!
Kawajai: Angel now stands over his fallen opponent and attempts a standing moonsault! Beretta gets his knees up! Nick grabs his abdomen in pain and Beretta sees an opening! He hits the Reload on Nick! Nick falls into the corner after that superkick! BERETTA FOLLOWS UP WITH A RUNNING BODY SPLASH IN THE CORNER! HE NOW GRABS NICK AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG! AS NICK GETS UP, BERETTA GOES TO THE ROPES AND GOES FOR A SPRINGBOARD BODY SPLASH! DROPKICK! NICK ANGEL HITS A DROPKICK RIGHT INTO THE MIDSECTION OF BERETTA IN MID AIR!
WWEFan: Nick gets up as Beretta stumbles to his feet as he continues to clutch right where Nick connected with that drop kick! NICK SEEKS TO CAUSE HIM AGONY IN HIS FACE AS WELL AS HE HITS A RUNNING BIG BOOT TO BERETTA’S JAW! Beretta goes down as Nick goes for the cover!
Kawajai: Beretta isn’t done yet! He manages to kick out! Nick picks up Beretta and plants him with a quick belly to belly suplex. Nick now picks up Beretta and immediately goes for the finish! GROUND ZERO! BERETTA PUSHES NICK AWAY! NICK TURNS AROUND TO FACE HIM.. THE BULLET! A RUNNING SPEAR! NICK ANGEL MANAGES TO SIDESTEP IT AND HE LOCKS HIS ARM AROUND BERETTA’S WAIST.. GERMAN SUPLEX! HE TURNS IT INTO A BRIDGING PIN! IS THIS IT?!
WWEFan: Beretta kicks out! Nick waits for him to get up once again and this time he goes for an enzuigiri! BERETTA DUCKS! HE KICKS NICK IN THE GUT AND PULLS HIM IN FOR A DOUBLE ARM DDT! BERETTA NOW LIFTS NICK UP AND HITS A QUICK SNAP SUPLEX! HE FOLLOWS THROUGH WITH IT AND HITS ANOTHER ONE! BERETTA NOW LIFTS NICK UP AGAIN AND SEEKS TO FINISH UP WITH A RUNNING FOREARM SMASH! IT HITS!
Kawajai: Beretta has gained control of this match! He waits for Nick to get to his knees as he pulls him in! Beretta has Nick and hits a Northern Lights Suplex! The bridging pin!

WWEFan: Nick Angel advances over Beretta!
Ring Announcer: Beretta has been eliminated.
(“Ghost” by GACKT plays as ONI quickly heads to the ring as the next entrant.)
Ring Announcer: And the next participant in the Open Fight Gauntlet…….ONI!!!!
Kawajai: And now one of the deadliest figures in all of EAW, “The Blackheart”, ONI stands in the center of the ring with Nick Angel struggling to pull himself up after a hard, intense battle with Berretta! Does he have the energy left to fight off someone like this man standing across from him right now? ONI wasting little time as he attacks Angel with a jab straight to the jaw and then clubbing forearm blows to the face neck and shoulders!
WWEFan: But Nick Angel fights back with Muay Thai-inspired shoot kicks to the leg and knee in particular, trying to take out his opponent and get to the final portion of the gauntlet! Jumping roundhouse kick staggers ONI a bit! He follows up with a Mongolian Chop, BUT ONI PUTS A STOP TO THE OFFENSIVE EXPLOSION WITH A HEADBUTT!
Kawajai: Nick I have to give credit! He’s come out here and taken the fight to ONI but ONI is hardly even staggered! You have to remember he’s come in here fresh and had one of the luckier draws available. ONI forcing Nick into the corner with a vicious knife-edge chop. Then a kick to the midsection! He pulls Nick out of the corner by the damn ears and whips him into the ropes…. THRUST SPINEBUSTER! That could do it right now….
WWEFan: Nick Angel displaying some fighting spirit here tonight! This has been a grueling competition and we’re getting close to the end of it but Angel is fighting like hell to remain and ONI is just smiling. I think he wants to torture Angel a little more. ONI pulls Angel up to his feet but Nick responds with a European uppercut! Then another! AND THEN A LEAPING LEG LARIAT THAT TAKES ONI OFF HIS FEET!
Kawajai: ONI rocked for the first time in this matchup…He’s dazed and confused as he gets up and Nick tries a running big boot that catches him straight in the jaw! ONI is wobbling but won’t go back down…ANGEL GOES SPRINTING INTO THE ROPES LOOKING FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT ONI COUNTERS WITH A STANDING SIDE KICK!
WWEFan: Wow…. it’s like the offense that Nick has been employing didn’t even hurt him. I’m starting to wonder if fatigue is a factor! No to mention Nick is giving up well over 50 pounds in weight advantage. Nick up to his feet trying to mount another offensive but ONI immediately cuts him off with a throat thrust! HE THEN FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A DEVASTATING DISCUS LARIAT! A SWORD NAMED ATROCITY!
Kawajai: He’s still grinning. My God, ONI is still grinning as he stands up and picks up a staggered, groggy Nick Angel…. LEGHOOK REVERSE BRAINBUSTER! THE FINAL ADVENT! Angel is not moving as ONI hooks the Leg!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Ring Announcer: Nick Angel has been eliminated.
WWEFan: Wow….ONI is looking unstoppable here. There is only one man left and right now it looks like he’s going to have his work cut out for him.
(The opening chords of “The Edge” by Tonight Alive blares throughout the area, as Phoenix Winterborn steps into the ring in a chorus of cheers.)
Ring Announcer: And introducing the final participant……PHOENIX WINTERBOOORNN!!!!
Kawajai: And here we are now, ONI and Phoenix Winterborn standing in the center of the ring, the last phase of the Open Fight gauntlet to begin here! Phoenix hits a forearm blow right to the face of ONI, who shrugs it off and laughs! Phoenix hits him again and again and again! Still no effect! ONI WITH A THROAT THRUST THAT SENDS WINTERBORN CRASHING INTO THE CANVAS!
WWEFan: It’s scary, man. It’s like the complete opposite of what we saw with Nick Angel. The longer ONI’s in there the more dominant and more violent he seems to become! ONI now hitting some hard, nasty chest kicks to the chest of Phoenix! The crowd trying to rally behind him but even their cheers can’t save him from the onslaught of ONI’s vicious attack!
Kawajai: ONI then pulls Phoenix up by the arm and puts him into a hammerlock…DDT! ONI turns him over and hooks the leg, trying to put Phoenix away right away and win the gauntlet!
WWEFan: ONI back up to his feet almost immediately stomping at the arms and legs of Winterborn, trying to soften him up for the finish. Phoenix needs to do something to get this bout turned around or he may suffer the same fate as Angel…ONI pulling him up by the hair and landing a vicious knee to the gut! ONI whips Winterborn into the ropes and looks for a vicious lariat but misses, Phoenix comes around and hits a flying crossbody!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE —
Kawajai:ONI PUSHES HIM RIGHT OFF AT ONE! ONI displaying the power as he gets back up to his feet and hits Winterborn in the face with a palm strike, but Winterborn returns the favor with an elbow smash right to the face! And then another one…AND THEN A SPINNING BACKFIST AND THAT HURT HIM! AND A DROPKICK THAT TAKES HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS! ONI back up to his feet and so is Phoenix…. WINTERBORN HITS A MICHINOKU DRIVER!
WWEFan: NO KICKOUT! ONI GOT A SHOULDER UP! ONI down and Phoenix falls down to the mat feeling a great deal of fatigue! He may have spent a great deal of his energy just to mount that offensive surge and hit the Michinoku Driver. How much does he have left?
(ONI sits up in the middle of the ring, a sadistic grin on his face as he turns to look at Phoenix.)
Kawajai: That sick, sick stare has to send a chill up your spine if you’re the recipient of it. ONI doesn’t even look phased as he gets up to his feet. Phoenix gets up to his feet quickly but is taken down with a Rolling Koppou Kick! ONI now looking towards the turnbuckle. What is he thinking? He’s going over there…he’s taking off the protective covering on that top turnbuckle! What is he going to do to Winterborn now!?
WWEFan: The referee insisting that he stop but ONI simply shoves him aside, pulling back all that protective padding. Let me tell you, that’s not a piece of plush under that padding folks, that’s hard iron! ONI is trying to hurt Winterborn here! He pulls him up by the hair and looks to drive him head first into the exposed turnbuckle! ONI CHARGES INTO THE CORNER…. PHOENIX PULLS AWAY AT THE LAST SECOND WITH A DROP TOE HOLD! ONI’S HEAD GOES CRASHING OFF THE TURNBUCKLE AND HE FALLS TO THE CANVAS! HE MAY BE OUT COLD!
Kawajai: Phoenix hopping up to the top rope…he’s steadying himself and the crowd is up on its feet! Can he finish off ONI here!?
WWEFan: He’s wasting too much time; he needs to end this now!
Kawajai: FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX CONNECTS! A TWISTING 630 MOONSAULT LANDS SQUARE ON THE CHEST OF ONI AS WINTERBORN HOOKS BOTH LEGS!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
(DING DING DING!!!!!)
Kawajai: WINTERBORN HAS WON THE OPEN FIGHT GAUNTLET! HE DID IT!
(“The Edge” plays once again as Phoenix has his hand raised in the air by the referee.)
Ring Announcer: Here is your winner…….PHOOOOENNNIIIXXX WINTERBOOORNNN!!!
WWEFan: What a match! The top prospects of Voltage were fully put on display in that epic contest and that final round was just awesome! ONI was a beast but the heart of Phoenix overcame that battle! The question is now….what is that reward that has been promised?
Kawajai: Who knows, we’ll have to wait and see but for now let’s take a moment to relax after that awesome opener! We’ll be back right after the break!
(A graphic of the Pure Championship appears on the screen)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is schedule for ONE fall and it’s for the PURE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
(“Paris is Burning” by St. Vincent plays all throughout the club as Kenny Drake makes his way to the balcony area in a black, green, white and gold ring attire)
Ring Announcer: First, making his way to the ring… from Portland, Oregon!… weighing in at 200 pounds!… HE’S THE CHALLENGER… KENNY DDDDDRRRRRAAAAAKKKKKEEEEE!!!…
Kawajai: Kenny Drake said last week that he was going to beat J.D. Damon within an inch of his life for what he did to him and that he was going to take the Pure Championship away from him after he’s done with him— but because it’s for the Pure Championship, they’re competing under Pure rules, so there’s not going to be any closed fists, no brawling between these two as much as they’d want to bash each other’s brains in! But make no mistake about it, these two are going to FIGHT!
(“Love The Way You Hate Me” by Like A Storm plays all throughout the club as J.D. Damon makes his way to the balcony area in a black and yellow ring attire with the Pure Championship around his waist)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, making his way to the ring… from Los Angeles, California!… weighing in at 220 pounds!… HE’S THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING PURE CHAMPION… J.D. DDDDDAAAAAMMMMMOOOOONNNNN!!!…
WWEFan: J.D. Damon has been in EAW for a year and so far, he has held the Pure Championship for a little less than four months— one of the longer Pure Championship reigns in EAW history! He’s just a month shy of passing Ares Vendetta’s reign and a defense here tonight would have him on his way to tying the longest Pure Championship reign and possibly surpassing it! But that’s if he retains the title tonight at Fighting Spirit 2!
(J.D. Damon unstraps the Pure Championship around his waist and hands it to the referee who folds and raises it before handing it to the timekeeper and signaling for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: There’s the bell as we start off this match to determine the Pure Champion… they lock up but Damon transitions it into a side headlock as he could be going for a takedown here… Drake is struggling out of it but escapes the headlock and picks Damon up from behind for the belly to back suplex! But Damon escapes it just in time and gets Drake back into the side headlock! Damon takes him down this time but Drake gets Damon in a scissors lock! Damon is able to get out of the lock but breaks his own side headlock! Damon grabs a hold of Drake’s legs as he could be going for a submission or something here… but Drake refuses to be put in a submission hold despite Damon’s efforts! Damon seems to have given up on getting Drake in any sort of submission hold as he sets him up… slingshotting him into the corner! The face of Drake bounces off of the turnbuckle pad as he staggers backwards… Damon with a discus clothesline! That wasn’t exactly expected, Damon is taking it to Drake thus far! Drake, wobbly a bit but he’s up nonetheless as he runs at Damon… DISCUS ELBOW SMASH! DAMON STOPPED DRAKE WITH THAT DISCUS ELBOW SMASH AS DRAKE FALLS ONTO THE MAT AND DAMON HOOKS THE LEG! THERE’S THE REF TO COUNT IT!
WWEFan: Kickout! A kickout at the count of one as frustration might be getting to Damon early on in this match, he wants to end this and walk out of here with the Pure Championship! Both of them are back up to their feet… Damon with a low dropkick to the knee of Drake! Drake falls to the mat as Damon grabs onto the top rope and stomps away at the fallen Drake! Stomping away at every open body part of his! Stomping him in the chest as Drake coughs up! Drake is struggling to get out of the stomps from Damon as Damon runs off of the ropes… Drake shifts himself as Damon goes to the outside and onto the padded floor below! Damon gets back up to his feet and turns around… baseball slide! But Damon gets out of there just in time as Drake goes out of the ring with him! Drake is down on the outside as he might be getting frustrated himself at this point! Drake uses the barricade to help him up to his feet as Damon gets on the ring apron waits for him to get to his feet… Drake is up… Damon goes off of the ropes— a dropkick to Damon! Drake with a dropkick to Damon just as he was in the air! Damon is kicking the padded floor as Drake slowly gets back up to his feet… Drake grabs a handful of Damon’s hair and picks him up as he throws his head into the ring apron! Drake, with a handful of hair, throws Damon’s head into our announcer’s table! Drake still with that handful of hair as he throws Damon into the barricade! The ref is at the count of six right now as Drake picks Damon back up and puts him back into the ring… that breaks the count as Drake re-enters the ring and makes the pin!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TW—
Kawajai: Damon was able to kick out of that one rather quickly as Drake grabs a hold of Damon and gets up to his feet… he has him by the waist… German suplex! Damon went down on the back of his head/neck with that single German suplex as Drake gets back up to his feet… looking down at Damon who’s rubbing the back of his neck as he slowly gets back up to his feet… Drake with a stiff lariat just as Damon was getting up! Drake grabs him by the waist again and picks him up… German suplex! But he still has his him by the waist… a second German suplex! He’s going for the third… a third German suplex! Sheesh, it was Damon taking it to Drake earlier but here we are halfway through this match and Drake is taking it to Damon with a series of German suplexes! The crowd is enjoying every second of this as Drake is doing what he said he’d do and he’s not even going to let Damon breathe! Damon is in a kneeling position as Drake takes a few steps back… SHINING TRIANGLE!!! DRAKE WITH THE STEP-UP TRIANGLE CHOKE AS HE HAS IT IN TIGHT!!! DRAKE HAS HIM IN THE TRIANGLE CHOKE AND THERE’S NO ESCAPING THIS! DAMON HAS TO THINK QUICKLY, HE HAS TO FIGURE OUT JUST HOW HE’S GOING TO GET OUT OF THIS BEFORE HE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO TAP OUT! DRAKE IS TAKING THE WIND OUT OF DAMON’S LUNGS WITH THIS TRIANGLE CHOKE!
WWEFan: DAMON IS HAVING A HARD TIME TRYING TO BREATHE, LET ALONE THINK, AS HE’S REACHING FOR THE ROPES BUT HE’S SO FAR AWAY FROM THEM! NO MATTER HOW FAR HE REACHES, HE’S NOT GOING TO GRAB THE BOTTOM ROPE, SO HE’S GOING TO HAVE TO THINK OF SOMETHING ELSE! HE HAS TO ESCAPE IT ANOTHER WAY… OPEN HANDED SMACKS TO THE FACE OF DRAKE! DAMON IS JUST SMACKING DRAKE IN THE FACE TO GET OUT OF IT… DRAKE CAN’T DEFEND HIMSELF FROM THE SMACKS SO HE HAS RELEASE THE HOLD! That’s one way of getting out of a triangle choke, just smack them in the face enough to annoy them into releasing the hold… Drake is seemingly annoyed with those smacks as he gets up to his feet and picks Damon up… Damon, out of breath, manages to shove Drake off of him and— EPIC KICK!!! DAMON WITH THE EPIC KICK AS DAMON FALLS FORWARD ONTO THE MAT BUT DAMON HAS HIS HAND ON HIS THROAT AS HE TRIES TO BREATHE… HE’S BREATHING JUST FINE AS HE TURNS DRAKE ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG FOR WHAT COULD BE THE END OF THIS MATCH!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: THE HEART, THE SPIRIT OF KENNY DRAKE! SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, HE MANAGED TO KICK OUT AT THE COUNT OF TWO AS J.D. DAMON IS SOMEWHAT SHOCKED BUT NEVERTHELESS GETS UP TO HIS FEET AND PICKS HIM UP… DOUBLE-ARM DDT! Drake is holding onto that arm of his after that as Damon picks him back up and whips him into the ropes… Drake rebounds off of them… discus clothesline! Drake gets back up to his feet on his own this time as Damon is behind him… SPINE BREAKER!!! THOSE KNEES INTO THE BACK OF DRAKE AS HE HAS HIS HAND PRESSED UP AGAINST HIS BACK!!! THAT HAD TO HAVE HURT MORE THAN HIS ARM!!! Damon gets back up to his feet as Drake’s head bounces off of the mat… Damon grabs a hold of him and picks him up as he sets him up for the… DEATH BY DAMON!!!!!! DRAKE GOES BACK-FIRST INTO THE MAT HARD AS HE COULD BE OUT OF IT!!! DAMON RUNS HIS HAND THROUGH HIS HAIR AS THIS MIGHT BE THE LAST PIN ATTEMPT!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THR—
WWEFan: DAMON THOUGHT HE HAD IT, HE THOUGHT HE HAD THIS MATCH WON, HE THOUGHT HE HAD RETAINED THE PURE CHAMPIONSHIP BUT IN A SPLIT SECOND, DRAKE KICKS OUT JUST AS THE REF’S HAND WAS DOWN FOR THE THREE! You could argue whether or not that was a two count or not but the ref is saying it’s a two count, so this match is going to go on! Damon, frustrated with the ref’s call, gets back up to his feet and waits for Drake to get up to his feet… Drake, though hurt, is up… DISCUS ELBOW SMASH! DRAKE DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT AS DAMON TRIES TO REGAIN HIS POSTURE BUT DRAKE IS QUICKER AS HE KICKS HIM IN THE STOMACH AND… SHOTGUN!!! THAT SUPLEX TRANSITIONED INTO THE KNEE LIFT AS DAMON IS HURT HIMSELF! DAMON IS HURTING AS DRAKE ISN’T GOING FOR THE PIN, NO, HE’S GOING TO DO WHAT HE SAID HE’D DO AND THAT’S BEAT DAMON WITHIN AN INCH OF HIS LIFE! DRAKE GRABS A HOLD OF DAMON WHO’S OUT OF BREATH AS HE PICKS HIM UP AND SETS HIM UP… THE KILLING JOKE!!!!!! THE LIFTING SINGLE ARM DDT TO DAMON AS DRAKE TURNS HIM ON HIS BACK AND DRAPES HIS ARM OVER HIS CHEST, EXHAUSTED AFTER SUCH A GRUELING MATCH THIS HAS BEEN BUT HE’S JUST THREE SECONDS AWAY FROM CAPTURING THE PURE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THR—
Kawajai: WHAT?! EVERYONE IN THE CLUB IS SHOCKED AS DAMON BARELY, JUST BARELY, KICKED OUT BEFORE THE REF COULD GET TO THE COUNT OF THREE, EVEN IF JUST OUT OF INSTINCT! Drake sits up as he looks back at him, running his hand through his hair as he grins and nods, getting back up to his feet… he grabs a hold of Damon and picks him up as he sets him up for… THE KILLING JOKE!!!!!! HE’S GOING FOR A SECOND ONE AS DAMON JUST SHOVES DRAKE OFF OF HIM BEFORE HE COULD HIT IT… DRAKE’S BACK IS FACING DAMON… EPIC KICK!!! THE EPIC KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF DRAKE AS HE FALLS INTO THE ROPES, DAMON PICKS HIM UP AS HE HAS HIM SET UP FROM THE ROPES… DEATH BY DAMON!!!!!! A SECOND DEATH BY DAMON TO DRAKE AS DAMON MAKES SURE TO HOOK BOTH LEGS SO THAT THERE’S NO WAY FOR DRAKE TO KICK OUT OF THIS AND I DON’T THINK HE’S GOING TO, NOT AFTER THAT SECOND DEATH BY DAMON!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!!!!!!………
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Love The Way You Hate Me” by Like A Storm plays all throughout the club as J.D. Damon hesitates to get back up to his feet but is handed the Pure Championship)
Ring Announcer: Here’s your winner… AND STILLLLL THE PURE CHAMPION… J.D. DDDDDAAAAAMMMMMOOOOONNNNN!!!
WWEFan: And with that, J.D. Damon lives to defend his championship for another month! That had to have been one of his most difficult matches to date but tonight he showed us all that he came prepared!
Kawajai: He had to, he was up against an incredibly game Kenny Drake, one who was looking to rip his head off. Many like to say that J.D. Damon is arrogant or brags about himself too much but truth be told he’s just that good and if he keeps this up he can go down as the best Pure Champion we’ve had!
(J.D. Damon heads up the stairs to leave before turning around one last time to hold up his Pure Championship with a smile on his face, drawing ire from the fans as we fade away from ringside.)
(We are shown a highlight reel, taking us across many years of EAW during Grand Rampage season. It focuses on the competition of the Gold Rush tournament, showing all of its winners before quickly cutting to footage of current day Voltage Elitists.)
Narrator: The Gold Rush Tournament, one of EAW’s biggest tournaments of the year returns starting next week on Voltage as eight of the brand’s very best compete for the right to face our Answers World Champion at Grand Rampage. The chance to start off the journey to Pain For Pride strong presents itself with some of the stiffest competition yet, leading to an exciting final match LIVE at Reckless Wiring!
(The camera pans back to inside of the Marquee Night Club)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall and it’s for the KING OF ELITE CROWN… if Erebos loses, he has to join The Sanatorium!!!
(“Schism” by Tool plays all throughout the club as Eclipse Diemos makes his way to the balcony area in an all black ring attire and black leather jacket with the King of Elite crown in hand)
Ring Announcer: First, making his way to the ring… from Prescott Hills Sanitarium, Arizona!… weighing in at 286 pounds!… HE’S THE KING OF ELITE… ECLIPSE DDDDDIIIIIEEEEEMMMMMOOOOOSSSSS!!!…
Kawajai: An unlikely king, Eclipse Diemos has shown that he’s not going to be unseated from the throne he sits on and has made it clear time and time again that Erebus or should I say, Erebos, isn’t going to unseat him from his throne— no one is going to unseat him from it… or so, he thinks. Eclipse Diemos thinks that but we don’t know if anyone could unseat him as there’s just something different about him and that’s the thing, no one knows what’s so different about him and that… that’s worrisome for whoever who tries to dethrone him!
(“Nightmare” by Avenged Sevenfold plays all throughout the club as Erebos makes his way to the balcony area in a black and red ring attire with red facepaint)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, making his way to the ring… from Tartarus!… weighing in at 240 pounds!… “The Primordial God of Darkness”… EEEEERRRRREEEEEBBBBBOOOOOSSSSS!!!…
WWEFan: One of the most haunting figures in EAW, Erebos is another side of Erebus that we have never seen before— something has consumed him and has filled his mind with thoughts he wouldn’t normally have! This side of Erebus makes him even more of a threat— not just to EAW but to Eclipse Diemos and to the King of Elite Crown! But just how much of a threat is he? Let’s see.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: The bell has rung as things are just getting started… Diemos and Erebos aren’t taking their eyes off of each other as Diemos tilts his head and sticks his tongue out; just creepy as Erebos takes a few steps forward… they lock up in the middle of the ring as Erebos manages to get Diemos into a headlock within seconds! The ever-elusive Diemos manages to slip out and exits the ring as he seems to be rethinking what he’s going to do here! Hesitant, Diemos gets up on the ring apron but gets down from there as Erebos rushes in… Diemos is… laughing? Diemos is laughing as he carefully gets back up on the ring apron… Erebos isn’t laughing though as he goes after Diemos… Diemos with a hard right hand! Some of the facepaint got on his hand as Erebos staggers backwards… Diemos goes through the ropes… Erebos with a running knee to the side of the head! Erebos grabs a handful of Diemos’ hair and picks him up… Erebos with several knife-edge chops to the chest of Diemos as he has him up against the ropes and whips him to the opposite end of ropes… Diemos rebounds off of them as Erebos takes him down with a discus clothesline! This isn’t the Erebus we’re so used to seeing; this side of him is so much more relentless and not so forgiving as he has what he wants to do to Diemos burned into the back of his mind! We’re so used to seeing him with the white facepaint but we haven’t seen much of what “Erebos” can do in the ring and so far, he seems to be everything we expected him to be! But let’s not forget that Diemos is just as relentless and not so forgiving himself; this is a match we’ve been waiting for, for the past couple of months! Diemos is getting back up to his feet but Erebos is right there behind him… Diemos is up but Erebos grabs a hold of him and… PITCH BLACK!!!!! DIEMOS THOUGH SHOVES EREBOS OFF OF HIM AND INTO THE TURNBUCKLE PADDING IN THE CORNER!!! EREBOS HAD HIM FOR THE PITCH BLACK BUT DIEMOS COUNTERED IT LIKE THAT!!!
WWEFan: With Erebos in a kneeling position, Diemos changes his demeanor to one that’s more aggressive to contrast his creepiness as he looks down at Erebos… multiple rights to the face of Erebos as some of that facepaint is peeling off! Erebos with a forearm into the stomach of Diemos as he gets up to his feet… Erebos with multiple rights of his own to the face of Diemos! Erebos has Diemos backed up in the corner as he whips him to the opposite corner of the ring… he rushes… Diemos stops him with a boot to the mouth! Staggered, Erebos is left wide open… running back elbow! Diemos with the running back elbow to the mouth of Erebos as Erebos quickly gets back up to his feet… another running back elbow! Erebos sidesteps it as he goes for a discus clothesline… but Diemos ducks underneath it… Diemos with a stiff boot to the back of Erebos’ knee; effectively taking him down to one knee! Diemos with hard rights and lefts to the back of Erebos as he has him down on the mat after multiple rights and lefts; resorting to stomps and kicks! Erebos is unable to defend himself from the stomps and kicks as the referee has to step in and separate them from each other… Diemos is reluctant as the referee is telling him to back up… Diemos compromises? Diemos compromises with the referee as Erebos tries to get back up to his feet… running back elbow! That one hits as Erebos is back down on the mat… Diemos is looking down at Erebos as he grabs a handful of his hair and picks him up… but Erebos takes him down onto the mat with him! Fed up with Diemos and his antics, Erebos pummels him; anger and frustration settling in on his face as he pounds away, seemingly dead-set on leaving an indent of his fist in Diemos’ face! Diemos blocks one of them and throws a hard right to the face of Erebos before shoving Erebos off of him and gets back up to his feet… Erebos is back up to his as Diemos picks him up and carries him… CHARGING SPINEBUSTER!!! DIEMOS WITH THE SPINEBUSTER TO EREBOS AS EREBOS FEELS A SHARP PAIN IN HIS SPINE!!! THAT SHARPNESS OF PAIN IS GOING TO KEEP HIM DOWN ON THE MAT FOR THE PIN!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: Erebos just shoves Diemos off of him to break up the pin as both of them quickly get back up to their feet… Erebos with a kick to the stomach of Diemos as he gets him into a headlock and picks him up… float over DDT! Erebos yanks Diemos off of the mat as he knees him in the stomach before setting him up for a vertical suplex! Lifting him up, Erebos stalls before taking him down with a vertical suplex! Writhing in pain, Diemos gets onto his stomach to alleviate some of the pain from his back and slowly gets back up to his feet… spinning forearm smash! That took him off of his feet as he slowly gets back up to his feet again… running leg drop to the back of the head of… no! Diemos gets out of there in time as Erebos misses! Diemos gets back up to his feet as Erebos is in a seated position… Diemos with a stiff kick to the back of Erebos which prompts a pained yelp from Erebos as he gets back up to his feet… Diemos with a forearm to the face! Staggering back and into the ropes, Erebos finds himself on the receiving end of a hard knee to the stomach as Diemos whips him into the opposite end of the ropes… Erebos rebounds off of the ropes as Diemos is there just waiting for him… Erebos with a diving clothesline! Both of them quickly get back up to their feet as Erebos takes Diemos back down with another diving clothesline! They’re both up again as Diemos turns around… SIT-OUT SPINEBUSTER!!! EREBOS WITH THE SIT-OUT SPINEBUSTER TO DIEMOS AS DIEMOS FEELS A SHARP PAIN IN HIS SPINE HIMSELF!!! THAT’S GOING TO KEEP HIM DOWN MUCH LIKE IT KEPT EREBOS DOWN EARLIER BUT… but Erebos isn’t going for the pin? He seems to be going for something else here as he’s waiting for Diemos to get back up to his feet… Diemos is up… PITCH BLACK!!!!!! BUT DIEMOS GETS OUT OF IT AND SHOVES EREBOS OFF OF HIM… ROOM 13!!!!! NO! EREBOS SIDESTEPS IT AS DIEMOS TURNS AROUND AND INTO THE… GATES OF TARTARUS!!!!! THE GATES OF TARTARUS TO DIEMOS AS EREBOS HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
WWEFan: BUT THAT’S NOT GOING TO BE ENOUGH!!! THAT’S NOT GOING TO BE ENOUGH TO TAKE THE KING OF ELITE CROWN AWAY FROM ECLIPSE DIEMOS!!! THAT’S JUST NOT GOING TO BE ENOUGH AS… Slowly but surely, with fatigue starting to set in, as they both get back up to their feet… Diemos with a stiff boot to the mouth! Another! One more as Erebos staggers backwards, holding his mouth in pain and thus letting Diemos think of what he’s going to do here… Erebos with a discus clothesline but Diemos ducks underneath it as he has a hold of Erebos’ arm… ARM-TRAP NECKBREAKER!!! THE ARM-TRAP NECKBREAKER TO EREBOS AS DIEMOS MAKES THE PIN AND HOOKS THE LEG!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: Erebos gets the shoulder up! Diemos is visibly frustrated here but he doesn’t waste any time disputing the count as he instead gets back up and grabs a handful of Erebos’ hair as he picks him up… Diemos with a knee to the stomach! Diemos contemplates what he’s going to do here before laughing; seems like a sick idea just popped into his head as he sets Erebos up… sets him up for his own finisher… PITCH BLACK!!!!!! BUT EREBOS THROWS DIEMOS INTO THE CORNER… DIEMOS’ BACK IS AGAINST THE CORNER… STINGER SPLASH!!! EREBOS WITH THE STINGER SPLASH INTO THE CORNER AS DIEMOS STAGGERS OUT OF THE CORNER AND INTO HIM… HE SETS HIM UP… PITCH BLACK!!!!! BOTH OF THEM ARE DOWN, BOTH OF THEM ARE WORN OUT AND EXHAUSTED FROM THIS MATCH AND THIS MATCH HAS BEEN GRUELING BETWEEN THESE TWO AS EREBOS MAKES SURE DIEMOS’ SHOULDERS ARE ON THE MAT BEFORE HOOKING THE LEG!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THR—
WWEFan: Diemos kicks out! Diemos kicks out! Erebos is panting; his eyes wide open as he thought he had it there! A split second more and the King of Elite Crown would’ve been his! Erebos holds up two fingers, double-checking the count with the referee as the referee nods his head… Erebos’ sigh is visible as he gets back up to his feet and looks down at Diemos… EREBOS IS ENRAGED AS HE YANKS DIEMOS OFF OF THE MAT AND LOOKS HIM IN THE EYES! HE LOOKS DIEMOS IN THE EYES BEFORE SETTING HIM UP… ANOTHER PITCH BLACK!!!!!! THAT’S COUNTERED! THAT’S COUNTERED AS DIEMOS SHOVES EREBOS OFF OF HIM… EREBOS GOES BACK AFTER HIM… GLASGOW SMILE!!!!!! DIEMOS MIGHT’VE TAKEN EREBOS’ HEAD OFF WITH THAT DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!!! THAT WAS ONE BIG CLOTHESLINE AS BOTH OF THEM ARE DOWN! Both of them are down on the mat as the referee checks up on both of them… Diemos though is getting back up to his feet and soon enough, Diemos is up, picking Erebos up to a kneeling position as he wipes some off the facepaint off before taking a few steps back and… ROOM 13!!!!!! THAT, THAT RUNNING BIG BOOT HAD TO HAVE TAKEN EREBOS’ HEAD OFF AS HE’S UNCONSCIOUS ON THE MAT, HIS FACEPAINT HAS PEELED OFF AS DIEMOS WIPES SOME OF IT ON HIS T-SHIRT BEFORE PINNING HIM!!! IS THAT IT?! IS EREBOS JOINING THE SANATORIUM?!?!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!!!!!!………
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Schism” by Tool plays all throughout the club as Eclipse Diemos slowly gets back up to his feet and is handed the King of Elite Crown)
Ring Announcer: Here’s your winner… AND STILLLLL THE KING OF ELITE… ECLIPSE DDDDDIIIIIEEEEEMMMMMOOOOOSSSSS!!!…
Kawajai: You know what this means, right? This means that Erebos is a part Sanatorium! I never would have thought that he’d be joining them but he’s going to have to as these are the terms they agreed on! Eclipse Diemos retains his King of Elite Crown and Erebos joins the Sanatorium— who would’ve thought?!
WWEFan: Erebos might be a part of the Sanatorium but I don’t think he’s going to even bother with them, I don’t think this is the end between Eclipse Diemos and Erebos— this just isn’t the end! Erebos can’t be with them, he just can’t… can he?
Kawajai: Whether this is the end or not, Eclipse Diemos fulfilled what he said he was going to do and he said that after tonight, the Sanatorium were going to have a new member and that member is Erebos! If they’re together, then this isn’t going to be good for Voltage… but there’s some doubt there. Are they going to co-exist? Or is there going to be some friction there? Hopefully we find out what happens from here on the next Voltage, if Erebos is even going to hold up to his end of the bargain… or if Eclipse Diemos just drops the dead weight…
(Eclipse Diemos gets down on the mat beside Erebos as he runs his hand through Erebos’ hair, tilting his head creepily as Erebos lays there unconscious, Eclipse Diemos closes Erebos’ eyes as he laughs hysterically, the club is just silent as we go to a commercial break)
(We cut to the backstage area as Flannery McCoy is standing by waiting for her guest.)
Flannery McCoy: We have now officially reached the halfway point for Fighting Spirit 2 as we are now three matches deep and so far it has been one hell of a show! My guest at this time is a man who is just coming out of one of those matches, please welcome our Pure Champion……J.D. DAMON!
(J.D. Damon enters the scene with a towel draped over one shoulder and the Pure Championship over the other.)
Flannery McCoy: Thank you for joining me here tonight, first off I want to say congratulations on your successful defense against Kenny Drake. Tell us Damon, how are you feeling following that match?
J.D. Damon: How do I feel? I feel the same way about myself as I always do. I feel like I’m the best thing going on Voltage and it may be surprising to some but why I feel that way tonight isn’t because of my match against Kenny Drake. No, me beating him was simply academic. I knew from the very start that scrub was going to end up being sent to the back of the line. It’s hearing the announcers calling that match, hearing them give me my due and bringing up the fact that in just a matter of weeks, I will have tied for longest reigning Pure Champion and soon after that, will have beaten that record. In the history books it will show that I have surpassed the likes of Ryan Savage, Aren Mstislav and Ares Vendetta, Elitists who are being brought up as the top tier when it comes to EAW’s future. My greatness is finally being realized and after tonight everyone will have to take notice. Forget about DDD vs Liam, forget about Ares vs Tyler, hell, forget about Hexa-Gun vs Team Cross. None of those matter, none of those will be talked about in two or three years time — but me? Nobody will forget me and my performance tonight, this is the true highlight of Fighting Spirit 2, when people look back at my career they will see this as the true start to the new era of Voltage: The era of J.D. Damon!
???: Ha. You’re real funny, you know that?
(Carson Ramsay walks into view and immediately gets in the face of J.D. Damon.)
Carson Ramsay: You really think highly of yourself don’t you? You honestly believe that you have eclipsed every man on that list? That you matter more than the fate of our brand being decided tonight? How much of an idiot are you? People won’t forget about this night alright, but it won’t be because of you and the start of your non-existant era, I guarantee you half the audience doesn’t even know who the hell you are right now. But don’t worry, I do. I know how much of a egotistical prick you are. I am going to go out and make real history tonight with Team Cross and after that I’m coming for you and who knows? Maybe the Pure title will be held by somebody who people can actually proud of.
(J.D. Damon looks on in silence, seething as Carson walks off and leaves the set.)
(The camera pans somewhere else backstage as Mr. DEDEDE and Tarah Nova are seen together, talking to each other as they seem to be bickering with one another, Tarah Nova rolls her eyes and looks away)
Mr. DEDEDE: You’re rolling your eyes but you know what could happen to you? You know what would happen to you if I let you go out to the ring with me? That stuttering idiot could harm you and I’m not going to let him do that. I’m not going to let him do anything to you. Not him or anyone else.
Tarah Nova: But I want to be out there with you!
Mr. DEDEDE: I know, I know. I want you to be out there too.
Tarah Nova: Then what’s the problem?
Mr. DEDEDE: The problem… is Liam Catterson. I hate to say it but he is. He said some things regarding you that I can’t even repeat. He said some things he’d do to you and so for as much as I want you to be out there, your safety and well-being means more to me than this match. I don’t put anyone’s safety and well-being before mine but I’m putting yours before mine because I don’t want anything bad to happen to you. You should sit back here, you have nothing to worry about here, there’s no one back here who’s going to mess with you— after all, Eddie Mack was fired a week ago. If you don’t feel safe back here, then go back to the hotel room. Wait for me there because I’m going to be back with the Answers World Championship.
Tarah Nova: Fine but you better be back, with or without it!
(Mr. DEDEDE grins, putting his index finger up to her chin and lifting it up as he makes eye contact with her)
Mr. DEDEDE: You know who I am, right? I’m still God. I’ll be back… WITH the Answers World Championship.
(Mr. DEDEDE pecks Tarah Nova on the forehead and ruffles her hair before putting his gray jacket on and going to the stage as Tarah Nova goes in the other direction)
(A video package of the feud between Mr. DEDEDE and Liam Catterson plays)
(A graphic of the Answers World Championship appears on the screen)
Ring Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall and it’s for the ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
(“The Man Who Sold the World” by Midge Ure plays all throughout the club as Liam Catterson makes his way to the balcony area in a black, white and green ring attire)
Ring Announcer: First, making his way to the ring… from Shildon, United Kingdom!… weighing in at 225 pounds!… HE’S THE CHALLENGER… LIAM CCCCCAAAAATTTTTEEEEERRRRRSSSSSOOOOONNNNN!!!…
Kawajai: To think that this is because of Ashten Cross— it was a few weeks ago that Ashten Cross told Liam Catterson that he has to take what he wants and that’s what Liam Catterson has been saying for the past few weeks; that he’s going to take not just the Answers World Championship away from Mr. DEDEDE but Tarah Nova too! But as we just saw, Mr. DEDEDE isn’t going to let Tarah Nova sit out here at ringside so nothing bad happens to her even though she wanted to be out here with him— that just goes to show that Liam Catterson has gotten into his head!
“Ayy, y’all heard about the good news?
Y’all sleeping on me, huh? Had a good snooze?
Wake up, nigga, wake up!
We bout to get this paper”
(“Feedback” by Kanye West plays all throughout the club as Mr. DEDEDE makes his way to the balcony area in a black, white and red ring attire with a gray jacket and the Answers World Championship around his waist)
“Money never made me
Make me do something? Nah, can’t make me
Even if the money low, can’t pay me
Even if the money low, can’t play me”
Ring Announcer: And his opponent, making his way to the ring… from Denver, Colorado!… weighing in at 230 pounds!… HE’S THE REIGNING AND DEFENDING ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… MR. DDDDDEEEEE! DDDDDEEEEE! DDDDDEEEEE!!!…
WWEFan: Mr. DEDEDE knows that he has to take this match seriously, he knows he has to take his opponent seriously even if his opponent isn’t anything like Tyler Parker, Y2Impact or Jaywalker as he said earlier this week! But his opponent is a former Answers World Champion and that’s enough for him to take this match seriously, especially after Liam Catterson threatened to do something to Tarah Nova, there’s no jokes from the reigning Answers World Champion— not one! Mr. DEDEDE is as serious as ever and if I were Liam Catterson, I’d be careful of every move I make in the ring because he’s going to have a counter for it!
(Mr. DEDEDE unstraps the Answers World Championship from around his waist and kisses it before handing it to the referee who folds and raises it)
Kawajai: This is what this is for, this is what’s on the line— the Answers World Championship!
(The referee hands the Answers World Championship to the timekeeper and signals for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Kawajai: The match starts with both of them staring each other down… while DEDEDE has a serious look on his face, Liam seems relaxed as he’s grinning from ear to ear… he stares at DEDEDE and mouths off at him before running at him— DEDEDE gets out of there as Liam goes into the corner! In the corner, DEDEDE throws a few hard rights and lefts to the face as Liam tries to defend himself! They’re just brawling in the corner as Liam tries to get out of the corner but DEDEDE is there to keep him there and make sure he’s not going anywhere… Liam just has to defend himself from every right and left and find an opening… it seems like he has found an opening as he knees DEDEDE in the stomach a few times before throwing a hard right to the side of the face! DEDEDE staggers backwards as Liam recovers in the corner before going for the high knee… DEDEDE sidesteps it… spinning heel kick! DEDEDE with the spinning heel kick to the back of the head! Liam is in a kneeling position as DEDEDE runs at him… low dropkick to the face! Liam falls to the mat as DEDEDE breathes in and out before running his hand through his hair… DEDEDE still has that serious look on his face as he grabs a hold of Liam and picks him up… DEDEDE with a hard right to the jaw as he runs off of the ropes and— Liam with the high knee to the face/nose!
WWEFan: DEDEDE is holding onto his nose, checking to see if it’s broken or if there’s any blood dripping from it but he seems to be fine… Liam grabs a hold of him and picks him up as he whips him into the ropes… DEDEDE rebounds off of them and into a kneelift! DEDEDE falls to the mat hard as Liam just smirks to himself… Liam grabs a hold of DEDEDE and picks him back up as he chops him in the chest! Those knife-edge chops have DEDEDE backed up into the corner as Liam chops him in the chest again! DEDEDE’s chest is red from those chops as he’s vulnerable in the corner there… Liam runs to the opposite corner and runs back at DEDEDE for a body splash… but DEDEDE gets out of there as Liam misses the body splash! DEDEDE gets back up to his feet quickly as Liam turns around… DEDEDE kicks him in the stomach and grabs onto his tights… DEDEDE DDT!!! DEDEDE WITH THE IMPALER DDT AS HE TURNS LIAM ONTO HIS BACK AND PINS HIM!!! IS THIS IT, SO SOON?!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: THE REF STOPS THE COUNT FOR SOME REASON… DEDEDE REALIZES THE COUNT STOPPED AS HE’S WONDERING WHAT THE REF IS DOING… THE REF POINTS TO THE HAND ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! ROPE BREAK! DEDEDE should’ve known that there could’ve been a rope break if they’re just an inch or two away from the ropes but that’s not much of his fault, more so a showing of ring presence than anything else! DEDEDE has ring presence himself but Liam knew where he was it, he knew he wasn’t far from the ropes so he reached for the bottom rope to break up the pin at the count of two! DEDEDE is back up to his feet as Liam is in a kneeling position… DEDEDE takes a few steps back… enziguri! Liam falls to the mat and with him on his back, DEDEDE goes to the top turnbuckle… DEDEDE stands up there and looks down… frog splash! Liam holds onto his stomach as DEDEDE gets back up to his feet and stalks him… he’d end it here if he could as Liam is in a kneeling position… DEDEDE goes for a stomp to the head but Liam gets out of there as DEDEDE hits nothing but the mat! DEDEDE turns around as Liam is there to kick him in the stomach… he hoists him up… PACKAGE SIDE SLAM! DEDEDE HITS THE MAT HARD AS LIAM HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
WWEFan: BUT DEDEDE KICKS OUT AT THE COUNT OF TWO! LIAMS IS YELLING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS AND BREATHING HEAVILY! Liam gets back up to his feet as he’s behind DEDEDE who’s just getting back up to his feet… DEDEDE turns around as Liam hoists him up on his shoulders but DEDEDE lands on his feet behind him… big boot to the back of the head! Liam is using the ropes to help him get back up to his feet and slowly he’s back up to his feet… he holds onto the ropes before turning around and there’s DEDEDE with a kick to the stomach! DEDEDE has him up against the ropes as he throws a few rights and lefts to the face and stomach as Liam has nowhere to go on the ropes! Tied up on the ropes, DEDEDE takes a few steps back before running at Liam as he goes for another big boot… Liam gets down onto the mat and holds the ropes down as DEDEDE goes to the outside and to the padded floor below! Liam exits the ring as he grabs a hold of DEDEDE and picks him up before whipping him into the steel steps! Those steps are no longer stuck together as DEDEDE’s lower back was just torn apart! The ref is starting the count but Liam doesn’t care! Liam kicks DEDEDE in the back of the head just as DEDEDE was trying to get up! Liam grabs a hold of him and picks him up before throwing him back into the ring as he re-enters the ring… the ref stops the count as Liam looks down at DEDEDE with a big grin on his face! Mouthing off at him…
Kawajai: DEDEDE is up to his knees as Liam runs off of the ropes and goes for the high knee but DEDEDE shifts himself and the knee just barely grazes the side of his head as he quickly gets up to his feet… Liam stops himself from rebounding off of the ropes and turns around… TRIPLE D DRIVER!!! DEDEDE WITH THE TRIPLE D DRIVER AS LIAM IS OUT OF IT AND SO IS DEDEDE!!! BOTH OF THEM ARE DOWN AS THE REF STARTS THE COUNT!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!!!!!!……… FOUR!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: DEDEDE is stirring.
Referee: FIVE!!!!!!!!……… SIX!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: Liam is stirring.
Referee: SEVEN!!!!!!!!……… EIGHT!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: Both of them are back up to their feet as the ref stops the count… they’re in the middle of the ring, exchanging blows… a right from DEDEDE, a right from Liam, back and forth! DEDEDE gets the upperhand though with those rights and lefts to the face/head as Liam is backed up into the corner! DEDEDE picks him up and gets him on the top turnbuckle… he’s sitting up there, out of it… DEDEDE gets up there with him and seems to be going for a superplex but Liam is holding onto the ropes to prevent that from happening! Both of them are on the top turnbuckle as Liam headbutts DEDEDE… he stands up and grabs a hold of DEDEDE as the crowd is breathless… SWINGING NECKBREAKER FROM THE TOP ROPE!!! THE HEAD/NECK OF DEDEDE HIT THE MAT HARD AS BOTH OF THEM ARE OUT OF IT!!! LIAM SITS UP BUT HE’S OUT OF IT!!! DEDEDE IS OUT ON HIS BACK AS LIAM CRAWLS TO HIM AND DRAPES HIS ARM OVER HIS CHEST!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!………
WWEFan: THE REF STOPS THE COUNT AND THIS COULD BE FOR THE SAME REASON HE STOPPED ONE OF THE OTHER COUNTS EARLIER IN THE MATCH… THE REF IS POINTING AT THE FOOT ON THE ROPE! SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, DEDEDE WAS ABLE TO GET HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE TO BREAK THE PIN! Liam lays down on the mat in exhaustion as DEDEDE is stirring but barely… Liam gets back up to his feet and looks down at DEDEDE at this point as he’s practically begging him to get up… DEDEDE gets up to a knee but Liam with a hard right to the head! Hard right after hard right, those rights to the forehead! Liam backs off of DEDEDE and looks at the ref as the two argue for some reason while DEDEDE uses the ropes to help him get back up to his feet as trickles of blood drip from his forehead… DEDEDE is behind Liam as Liam turns around… DEDEDE kicks him in the stomach and then the step-up enziguri! Liam is up to his knees as DEDEDE is on his feet… DEDEDE picks him up and… GRAND SLAM!!! DEDEDE WITH THE GRAND SLAM TO LIAM AS HE HOOKS THE LEG!!! THE REF MAKES THE COUNT!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THR—
Kawajai: THE SHOULDERS ARE OFF OF THE MAT! LIAM HAD JUST BARELY GOTTEN HIS SHOULDERS OFF OF THE MAT AS THE REF WAS GOING TO COUNT TO THREE AND YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHAT’S GOING THROUGH THE MIND OF DEDEDE! DEDEDE looks at the ref as he says it was a three count but the ref insists that it was a two count! Both of them are worn out and exhausted but DEDEDE has a title to defend and that’s why he hasn’t stopped! DEDEDE gets up to his feet as Liam is stirring… DEDEDE notices that Liam is wobbly legged as he runs off of the ropes and into Liam who somehow does something out of nowhere and hoists him up in the air… POP-UP POWERBOMB!!! LIAM WITH THE POP-UP POWERBOMB TO DEDEDE AS DEDEDE IS OUT OF IT!!! LIAM BASICALLY FALLS ON TOP OF HIM, BARELY HOOKING THE LEG! THE REF IS COUNTING IT!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THR—
WWEFan: THE SHOULDERS ARE OFF OF THE MAT AS THE REF’S HAND WAS GOING DOWN ON THE MAT! WE’VE SEEN DEDEDE KICK OUT OF MATCH-ENDING, CAREER-ENDING MOVES LIKE THAT BEFORE BUT EVERY TIME HE KICKS OUT OF THEM, I’M IN DISBELIEF AND SO IS LIAM! Liam is just foaming out of the mouth as he gets back up to his feet while DEDEDE is barely moving… DEDEDE tries crawling to the ropes but Liam grabs him by the foot and drags him far away from the ropes… he picks him up and hoists him up for the spinebuster but DEDEDE with a few quick hard rights to the head! That could’ve been it if Liam got him with the spinebuster but he managed to get out of it before that could even happen! DEDEDE kicks him in the stomach and somehow, even after a brutal match, DEDEDE does the unthinkable… DIAMOND CUTTER!!! DEDEDE WITH THE DIAMOND CUTTER AS HE SEAMLESSLY FLOATS OVER AND TRANSITIONS IT INTO THE METH LOCK!!!!!! HE HAS THE METH LOCK IN TIGHT!!! THERE’S NOTHING LIAM CAN DO, THERE’S NO GETTING OUT OF THE METH LOCK!!! BUT HE’S NOT THAT FAR FROM THE ROPES AS HE’S REACHING FOR THEM… HE’S REACHING AAAND… LIAM GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE! HE GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE TO BREAK THE SUBMISSION! BUT DEDEDE IS KEEPING IT IN AS THE REF IS TELLING HIM TO RELEASE THE HOLD! BUT DEDEDE REFUSES TO AS HE APPLIES MORE PRESSURE… THE REF STARTS THE COUNT… THE REF GETS TO THE COUNT OF FOUR AND THAT’S WHEN DEDEDE RELEASES THE HOLD!
Kawajai: DEDEDE gets in the corner as he’s crouched… he’s yanking his hair, strands of hair on the mat as DEDEDE tells Liam to get up… Liam hears him, so he exits the ring! Smart thinking there or else he would’ve been Speared right then! DEDEDE gets out of the corner and goes after him as he too exits the ring… he’s on the outside as Liam kicks him in the stomach! They’re by the ring apron as Liam picks him up… POWERBOMB ONTO THE RING APRON!!! HOLD ON— DEDEDE LANDS ON THE RING APRON!!! He re-enters the ring as Liam re-enters the ring himself… they’re in the middle of the ring as they exchange blows like they were earlier! Rights and lefts from both of them as their legs get wobbly with each passing blow! Rights and lefts as both of them run off of the ropes… DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!!! THEY JUST CLOTHESLINED EACH OTHER AS BOTH OF THEM ARE DOWN AND OUT ON THE MAT!!! THE REF HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO COUNT!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!!!!!!……… FOUR!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: Neither of them are moving.
Referee: FIVE!!!!!!!!……… SIX!!!!!!!!……… SEVEN!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: Both of them are stirring.
Referee: EIGHT!!!!!!!!……… NINE!!!!!!!!………
Kawajai: HOW… THE… THEY’RE BACK UP TO THEIR FEET! THEY’RE BACK UP TO THEIR FEET AT THE SAME TIME! THEY KNEW THE COUNT WAS AT NINE AND THEY AREN’T GOING TO LET THIS MATCH RESULT IN A DOUBLE COUNTOUT! ONE OF THEM HAS TO DO SOMETHING HERE, THEY HAVE TO END THIS RIGHT NOW… DEDEDE GOES TO THROW A RIGHT BUT LIAM KICKS HIM IN THE STOMACH AND SETS HIM UP… THE CATTERSON IMPACT!!!!!! WHA— WHAT?! DEDEDE LIFTS LIAM UP IN THE AIR AND ONTO HIS BACK ON THE MAT!!! THAT WAS IT, THAT WOULD’VE BEEN THE END OF THE MATCH BUT DEDEDE DUG WITHIN HIMSELF AND LIFTED THAT WEIGHT UP AND ONTO THE MAT AS HE’S BREATHING HEAVILY… HAIR IN HIS EYES, SLOWLY GETTING BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS LIAM IS SLOWLY GETTING BACK UP TO HIS AND PRESSING HIS HAND TO HIS BACK… LIAM IS UP— SPEAR!!!!!! THE SPEAR OUT OF NOWHERE AS DEDEDE RUNS HIS HAND THROUGH HIS HAIR TO GET IT OUT OF HIS EYES AND HOOKS THE LEG!!! WHAT A BREATH-TAKING END TO THIS MATCH!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!……… TWO!!!!!!!!……… THREE!!!!!!!!………
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Feedback” by Kanye West plays all throughout the club as the referee helps Mr. DEDEDE up to his feet and hands him the Answers World Championship)
Ring Announcer: Here’s your winner… AND STILLLLL THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… MR. DDDDDEEEEE! DDDDDEEEEE! DDDDDEEEEE!!!
Kawajai: After everything that has been said in the past few weeks, Mr. DEDEDE is the one holding the Answers World Championship! After everything that has been said between them, Mr. DEDEDE not just protected the Answers World Championship but protected Tarah Nova! That might’ve been what motivated him to get back up each and every time!
WWEFan: Just when it looked like he wasn’t going to get back up, he got back up every time— even after the neckbreaker from the top rope and the pop-up powerbomb, Mr. DEDEDE got right back up! This was about more than the Answers World Championship to him and that much is clear as Tarah Nova is out here!
Kawajai: This is what it was about, this moment— Mr. DEDEDE and Tarah Nova together in the ring! If you’re just tuning in, Mr. DEDEDE has successfully retained the Answers World Championship here at Fighting Spirit 2!
(Tarah Nova tip toes as she presses her lips against Mr. DEDEDE’s,making out with him as he raises the Answers World Championship, “Feedback” plays in the background as we go to commercial break)
(Outside of the Marquee Night Club, Tyler Parker is shown taping his wrists and using his teeth to tear the tape as he speaks up)
Tyler Parker: Ares… you think you’ve gotten into my head but I don’t care what you think because for me? I’ve never hated anyone more than you. After you blindsided me and took every shot you could with those steel chairs, Ares, you were unaware of it but you’ve brought this on yourself. Because after you cheap shotted me, you opened my eyes. You opened my eyes and I realized you for who you are. You’re pathetic. You’re sad. You’re worthless. Tonight, I get to atone for my mistakes; my misplaced judgment. I assure you, I’ll make sure to finish what you started. You don’t even know the meaning of humility and I should have known that but, still, I still have this thing where I like to give people the benefit of the doubt and that? That ends… tonight. I’m going to make sure when you’re on your knees or when you’re lying flat on your back that you realize… your blood is the same as your father’s and you’re just like him. You think those chair shots hurt me? Just think of the things I could do to you tonight. Just think of the possibilities, Ares. I’m going to teach you what it’s like to be without hope, without hope, without a chance. If you thought that Penalty Kick you hit me with a few weeks ago was bad… I’m going to show you terrible. I’m forgiving but if someone tries to take everything away from me, tries to take away everything I’ve earned through blood, sweat and tears… then, the bets are off. You might think with Rook and Bishop’s protection that you’re safe but you’re not; far from it. You’ve found yourself in the one place on this Earth where you don’t want to be; in the ring with me. You’d be better off locked in a cage with starving tigers. Because those tigers wouldn’t have it in their mind to humiliate you on a stage such as this and they’d just kill you but what I’m going to do to you… is far worse than death. Tonight, you lose everything.
(Tyler Parker curls his hands into fists and tapes them before throwing the roll of tape away)
Tyler Parker: You’ve messed with me one too many times and right now, I’m looking down at your pathetic remnants of a career. I’ve spent the better part of a decade preparing for this moment and no amount of hatred, no amount of controversy could ever deter my focus from that. The question isn’t and never has been “can I beat you?” Because everyone knows I can. The question is “is this the moment I’ve been working towards for so long?” And the answer to that is… it is. I’ve sacrificed so much, too much, for someone like you to take it away from me. You’ve had your chances and you’ve squandered every one of them but I won’t. I know how you’ve been craving for a taste, just a lick, of a World Championship and I know you aren’t going to let anything stop you from getting what you crave but just think of someone who has their back up against the wall with every person in this city who’s supporting me, think of the pressure that’s on me right now. I’m someone who never folds under pressure, I’m someone who has risen faster than anyone else before me and most of all, I’m someone who has waited for this for years. I’ve taken every shot that’s been dealt, I’ve deflected every bullet… for this chance right here. I’m sorry to tell you but tonight isn’t going to be your night. It never was. You’re just a name. Wrong place, wrong time, Ares. I’m not underestimating you but you have to realize there’s a chain of events in everyone’s lives that you can’t alter. This is one of those events, Ares. I’m here tonight to win. There’s no chance of you changing that. This was never going to be a good night for you.
(The camera zooms out to show Tyler Parker standing in the street; shirtless with taped wrists/fists in jeans and boots)
Tyler Parker: I’m out here and I’m waiting.
(The camera zooms in on the face of Tyler Parker who has no emotion, much like how Ares Vendetta has no emotion as the camera cuts out…)
(INTERMISSION- Joey Bada$$ and Action Bronson take the stage to perform Fighting Spirit 2’s secondary theme “What About The Rest of Us”.)
(We get a video package highlighting the feud between Hexa-Gun and EAW leading in to HRDO approaching Ashten Cross and leaving it up to him to end the Hexa-Gun problem. Ashten Cross makes an offer for an all or nothing match, Control of Voltage on the line against the threat of Hexa-Gun’s disbandment. Cross is tasked with making a team for the match, convincing Ryan Savage, Carson Ramsay, Clark Duncan and Cailin Dillon to join before then going to a private meeting with Starr Stan who is at first reluctant to join, but chooses to accept in the final week. Wanting to have a number’s game, Hexa-Gun attacks Clark and injures him, forcing Ashten to need to reach out to someone, leading him to call on Aria Jaxon. With the teams now formed, we see the brawl that broke out on the go-home show before heading over to the ring announcer.)
Ring Announcer: The following is a 5 on 5 Tag Team Warfare Match, and it is scheduled for one fall! The winner of this match will gain control of Voltage and should Hexa-Gun lose, they must DISBAND!
(“Killing Strangers” by Marilyn Manson plays as Hexa-Gun make their way down the stairs, the fans who are much closer than usual are booing as hard as they can but it seems to fall on deaf ears as they continue to walk to the ring in single file.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, accompanied by Luzmala! They are the team of Y2IMPAAACCTTT…..HEART BREAK GAAAALLLL……DRAKE JAAAEEEGEEERRR…..TIBERIUUSSS JOOOONNNNEEESSS ANDDDD ERIS LECAAAAVAAA…..HEXAAAAAAAAAAAAAGUUUUUUNNNNN!!!!!
WWEFan: Hexa-Gun is walking down the stairs and heading to the ring in what is going to be the biggest match in the stable’s entire existence. Ever since it’s inception, Hexa-Gun has touted itself as the entity that will bring forth a new era in EAW, one that will have a return to the extreme and bring EAW into anarchy. Tonight is there chance to begin that process by starting with the Voltage brand and taking it over. Can you just imagine what Voltage would be like with these guys running the joint? The type of chaos that we’d have endure on a weekly basis?
Kawajai: I don’t even want to imagine it, these guys have nothing but bad intentions when it comes to their plans with power. Should these guys get their hands on the position, we’re going to be in for a very, very destruction path for Voltage.
(Hexa-Gun enters the ring as the six of them get in Hexagon formation as they wait for their opponents. Luzmala soon breaks form, heading out of the ring and going to ringside.)
WWEFan: Now it is time for the moment of truth…….
(“Seven Nation Army” by White Stripes plays as Ashten Cross comes out leading his team to the ring as Carson Ramsay, Aria Jaxon, Cailin Dillon, Starr Stan and Ryan Savage, who is trailing behind, are behind him. They stop at ringside, eyeing Hexa-Gun as the announcer introduces them.)
Ring Announcer: And their opponents, accompanied by Ashten Cross! They are the team of STARR STAAAANNNN….ARIAAAAA JAXOOOONNN…..CARSOOONN RAMSAAAAYYYY……CAILIN DILLOONNNN AND RYAN SAVAGE……..TEAM CROOOOOSSSSSS!!!!
WWEFan: Here they are. This is our last line of defense, the only thing left to stop Hexa-Gun from getting their wish of controlling Voltage. At first this looked to be a group of rag-tags, a bunch of individuals against an unstoppable but unit but having watched them these past few weeks and seeing them now, they look like a team — a true threat to Hexa-Gun!
Kawajai: This isn’t any team, this is an all star team! You have a legendary Hall of Famer, Starr Stan! Our Empress of Elite, Aria Jaxon! The Specialist Champion, Cailin Dillon! And Ryan Savage and Carson Ramsay who are both coming off big matches in their respective title pictures! These guys are prepared, they have the credentials, and right now they look fired up! So fired up in fact that Ashten Cross gives them the nod and the staredown is over, THEY’RE CHARGING THE RING!
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: ALL HELL HAS BROKEN LOOSE, THE TEAMS HAVE SPLIT OFF AS THERE ARE FIGHTS GOING ON ALL AROUND US! STARR STAN IS SENDING SHOT AFTER SHOT Y2IMPACT’S WAY AS THEY GO UNANSWERED!! ARIA JAXON AND HBG ARE EXCHANGING FOREARM SHOTS! CARSON RAMSAY AND DRAKE JAEGER ARE GOING AT IT WITH DRAKE PRESSING CARSON UP AGAINST THE ROPES FOR BODY SHOTS! CAILIN DILLON HAS TACKLED ERIS DOWN TO THE CANVAS AS ERIS CRAWLS AWAY AND THE TWO ALREADY TAKE IT TO THE FLOOR AND — OH! MEANWHILE WE SEE A BRUTAL HIGH KNEE TO THE FACE OF RYAN SAVAGE BY TIBERIUS AS RYAN HAS HIS MOUTHPIECE GO FLYING TO THE SIDE OF THE RING! IT’S HARD TO KEEP TRACK OF EVERYTHING GOING ON!
Kawajai: INDEED, FAN, THIS IS ANARCHY! IT SEEMS OUR CAMERA MEN ARE LOOKING TO FOCUS ON WHAT’S GOING ON CLOSE TO THE CROWD NOW AS ERIS IS LOOKING TO GET SOME DISTANCE FROM CAILIN! SHE ROAMS AROUND RINGSIDE BEFORE ROLLING BACK INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE, BUT OF COURSE CAILIN STILL GIVES CHASE! Cailin runs toward Eris, but Eris side steps her as Jaeger pushes away Carson to get a clean shot at Cailin! YAMCHA’D! NO, CAILIN AVOIDS IT! DROPKICK TO THE CHEST! Drake Jaeger is wobbly but still on his feet….until Carson comes back to him for a baseball slide to the knees which drops Jaeger down! Hang on! HBG and Aria are looking for people to make way as their brawl carries over to the middle of the ring! Aria whips HBG across the ring as HBG is forced to hop over Jaeger and stop herself! Aria is in pursuit though! When HBG rebounds, Aria uses the kneeling Drake Jaeger as a launching pad to intercept HBG with a flying forearm!
WWEFan: Starr Stan is still keeping Y2Impact on his toes, staying on him with constant strikes! He goes for a takedown which almost sends Imp and himself through the middle rope but Imp grabs on and saves himself! He makes a recovery and tries to escape Starr’s clutches but Starr simply slings Impact over his shoulders and drives him into the canvas with a powerslam before switching over into a waist lock! Up Impact goes — GERMAN SUPLEX, SENDING Y2IMPACT FLYING INTO THE CORNER AS THE BACK OF HIS HEAD HITS THE TURNBUCKLE! Starr Stan approaches him looking for more punishment — BUT ERIS GOES TOWARD HIM AND LATCHES ONTO WITH A SLEEPER HOLD! STARR STAN IS STRUGGLING WITH HER AND THAT’S WHEN IMP DELIVERS A CHOP BLOCK! DOWN STARR GOES WITH IMP AND ERIS ON THE ATTACK! Drake Jaeger has shaken the cobwebs and is annoyed with Aria who looks to help out Starr, he turns her around and delivers The Solar Flare! Rake to the eyes blinding her as HBG then comes from behind and gets onto her shoulders! ARIA IS DROPPED DIRECTLY ON THE CROWN OF HER HEAD THANKS TO A REVERSE HURRICANRANA!
Kawajai: Jaeger stopped Carson in his tracks from helping as he holds him back and attempts a shoulder thrust but Carson stands his ground and grabs him! Carson has Drake Jaeger by the tights and walks as far back as he can looking for momentum…..into the steel post he goes — NO! DRAKE JAEGER COUNTERS AND ITS CARSON WHO IS FORCED TO HIT THE STEEL! Hexa-Gun is gaining control at a quick rate! As this goes on Tiberius is biting down on the skull of Ryan, The Komodo Bite! That vicious psychological warfare tactic being used as Ryan is howling in pain! Ryan Savage is doing his best to get Tiberius Jones to let go with some fast paced jabs into the ribs as it seems to be working! Tiberius finally lets go but only so he can jump up for an enzuigiri! Ryan Savage falls backward into the corner as Tiberius gets onto the middle rope and taunts the crowd as he raises up his fist!
WWEFan: Punches rain down above on Ryan Savage! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN…WAIT A MINUTE, RYAN SAVAGE GRABS TIBERIUS’ LEGS! HE LIFTS TJ UP AND LEAVES HIM SITTING ON THE TOP ROPE! SUPERKICK TO THE JAW BY RYAN! Ryan turns around and he waves for Cailin to come back into the fold! She mows down HBG on the way as she goes to pick Aria back up — EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! She then runs toward Ryan who throws her up into the air as she lands on the top rope! She grabs Tiberius and brings him down to the canvas right away! DDT OFF THE TOP ROPE BY OUR SPECIALIST CHAMPION! TIBERIUS ROLLS TO THE APRON AND THEN FALLS OVER ONTO THE HARD FLOOR! Great team work there but there will be no rest for the weary! JAEGER GOES FOR THE GAE BOLG AS RYAN SAVAGE LEAP FROGS OVER IT! BUT- OH! LUZMALA TOSSES THE VIXENS CHAMPIONSHIP OVER TO ERIS AND SHE DROVE THE BELT RIGHT INTO RYAN’S FACE, HE DIDN’T EVEN HAVE TIME TO REACT! Hexa-Gun making use of Luzmala at ringside as Ashten shouts at ringside but at the end of the day this is Tag Team Warfare, there’s nothing against him assisting and Cross knows that!
Kawajai: Y2Impact still has Starr Stan grounded as he beats down on him, stomping on him and kicking him around to make sure that he doesn’t get up! Imp soon hovers over him and lifts him up onto his knees while binding the Gold Medalist’s arms behind his back! He signals for Eris as Eris then lets Starr get acquainted with the championship belt as well! Starr Stan is down as Y2Impact now drags Starr off — and is tying him up in the ropes! Y2Impact is trying to neutralize the most experienced member right away! Y2Impact has successfully sidelined Starr Stan while Eris is on a rampage as she is the first to introduce a foreign object into this match! She is now targeting Aria Jaxon who charges straight at her, not a wise move though as Aria is the quicker one to the draw! Roundhouse to the temple as a dazed Eris drops the belt! Aria pushes her into the ropes as Aria quickly moves the belt in front of her before Eris comes back to her! TILT A WHIRL TRANSITIONED INTO A FACEBUSTER ONTO THAT BELT! ERIS MUST ROLL OUT OF THE RING TO GET A BREAK AS PARTNER AS DRAKE JAEGER LOOKS TO AVENGE HIS TEAM MATE! ARIA DUCKS HIS BIG BOOT JUST IN TIME BUT DRAKE JAEGER STILL CARRIES ON WITH A SPRINT — WATCH OUT!
WWEFan: The Godspeed suicide dive on a now recovered Carson! Drake Jaeger shoots out of the ropes in an almost bullet like lunge! Carson and Drake were sent crashing near the audience area as the fans shot up and moved out of the way like bats out of hell! Drake Jaeger is now back on his feet and walks over to Eris and Tiberius to check their status! There’s no time for that though! Cailin Dillon has already scaled up to the top rope, she’s hovering over them! Eris and Drake go to duck for cover but Tiberius is met with a CROSSBODY FROM THE TOP! Eris and Drake may have managed to escape that but they aren’t out of the woods! Ryan Savage and Aria are in agreement as they hit the ropes! TWO MORE SUICIDE DIVES, THIS TIME IN UNISON!? THE MERCENARIES THOUGH, HERE THEY ARE FOR THE SAVE! ARIA ONCE AGAIN DUCKS HEXA-GUN’S OPPOSITION AND MANAGES TO TAKE DOWN DRAKE ON THE OUTSIDE BUT RYAN SAVAGE IS MET WITH THE TRAMP STAMP FROM HBG!
Kawajai: Starr Stan is still struggling, doing his best to wriggle his way out of those ropes but it’s been difficult! Ashten Cross looks to walk over and help but Luzmala menaces toward him and keeps him at bay! Eris LeCava is the only Hexa-Gun member in this match still up at ringside as she turns Aria around! DISCORDIA ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR! ERIS SEEMS TO BE HAPPY WITH HERSELF BUT SHE NEEDS TO WATCH OUT FOR CAILIN DILLON! Cailin grabs Eris by the hair and slams her right into the post! In the ring, Ryan Savage has sunk down but hasn’t completely collapsed in a heap just yet, something HBG is looking to change! She gets Ryan in that cravate….and then spikes him with a snapmare driver! Using as much strength as she can she turns Ryan Savage over and steps back so Y2Impact can springboard off of the ropes! THE LIONSAULT! Y2Impact nonchalantly covers as Starr Stan is still jerking around, trying to get out of those ropes as he now has gotten one arm out, but it looks like he may have to watch as Team Cross takes this loss!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!……………TWOOOOOOOO!!!!!!….THRRR —
WWEFan: Never count out Starr my friend, he freed himself and has pulled Imp away! Did you see the way he grabbed Y2Impact and literally dead lifted him up off of that lateral press!? The core strength of Starr Stan being shown as he uses it to transition into another German! HBG looks to intervene on Imp’s behalf but Cailin has her leg, drops her onto her face and then pulls her out of the ring, leaving Y2Impact to face the music for his actions in the early going! Y2Impact is at first worried but pulls himself together and swings! Starr Stan telegraphs it though and he’s caught! Starr Stan lobs him over his head and halfway across the ring with a belly to belly suplex this time around! Starr walks over to the cornered Imp and looks to continue his attack, but is caught off guard by a thunderous backhand chop! That might have been the hardest chop I have ever seen, and Starr is of course rocked but does his best to recover from the sting! A chop of his own knocks Y2Impact down but Imp is fast with returning to a vertical base!
Kawajai: That might not have been a good idea! Starr is waiting for him and has him in position for another belly to belly, trying to ragdoll Imp with these suplexes! Starr Stan keeps Y2Impact up and backs away! He turns his head as he sees Tiberius, Drake, HBG and Eris going at it with Cailin, Carson and Aria! Ryan Savage is on the apron and observes the mass of humanity in front of him! SENTON INTO THE CROWD OF PEOPLE! A bit of friendly fire there but Ryan Savage gets back up and looks to turn that move into an advantage for Team Cross, he’s picking up Hexa-Gun members and hammering away as — Woah! What the…..wait, Starr Stan turns away and instead is holding Y2Impact farther and farther up! Imp is throwing as many shots he can but Starr is maintaining that grip! No way…..HOLY HELL!
WWEFan: STARR STAN TOOK Y2IMPACT AND HEAVES HIM OVER THE ROPES WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, AND ONTO EVERYONE ON THE OUTSIDE, BODIES ARE LEFT EVERYWHERE AS THE NEW YORK CITY FANS ARE IN A FRENZY! STARR STAN IS SOAKING IT ALL IN, HE IS BACK IN HIS ELEMENT AND IS STARTING TO SHOW SHADES OF HIS OLD SELF! ONCE STARR IS IN RHYTHM IT’S ALMOST AS IF HE’S IN THE ZONE AND RIGHT NOW HIS TUNNEL VISION IS IN EFFECT!
Kawajai: Starr might be getting a little out of hand here! Look at him, he’s heading up to the top rope! Is he going for what I think he’s going for?! Get ready folks — STARRSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE! STARR STAN GOING HIGH RISK FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIX MONTHS AS HE COMES DOWN ON HEXA-GUN! ALL TEN COMPETITORS ARE DOWN ON THE GROUND, IT’S NOW UP TO ANYONE ON WHO WILL TAKE THE LEAD! Starr is stirring as he picks himself back up and grabs the opponent closest to him! He has Tiberius Jones by the foot, yanking him out from under that ring tarp! GREEN DRAGON MIST! STARR STAN WAS SURPRISED AS HE COVERS HIS EYES AND BLINDLY SWINGS AROUND AS HERE COMES DRAKE JAEGER — WHO BARRELS THROUGH WITH A SECOND GAE BOLG AND IT CONNECTS! DRAKE JAEGER SPEARED STARR STAN WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT AND RIGHT THROUGH AN OPENING IN THE BARRICADES AS STARR STAN IS SENT FLYING INTO THE ROWS OF CHAIRS, WHAT A NASTY HIT! CHAIR UPON CHAIR IS STICKING INTO STARR’S BACK AND LAYING UPON HIM WHILE DRAKE ISN’T DOING TOO GOOD HIMSELF!
WWEFan: Tiberius Jones is loving what he saw but he better turn around, Carson Ramsay is there and he’s got himself something from under the ring tarp as well! TRASHCAN LID TO THE SKULL! A SECOND ONE FOR GOOD MEASURE AS IT GOES BOUNCING OFF OF HIS HEAD! Carson lets go of it and leaves it be so he can go for a boot to the gut and then a push against the apron! Tiberius stops himself and runs over to retaliate but Carson scoops him up onto his shoulders! He has him in fireman’s carry position, he may be going for that gutbuster of his! Wait, OH! Even worse as he does it with assist from the crowd restraint, burying the edge of the hard barricade into Tiberius’s sternum as he falls over onto the other side of the restraint and gets to be closer to the shouts of the hostile EAW faithful! Tiberius is in pain on the floor as he coughs up the remainder of that mist of his!
Kawajai: Having disposed of TJ, Carson Ramsay now goes under the ring in search of even more weapons! With each weapon he pulls out, he sends it flying into the ring for future use in this match up! Kendo sticks, chairs, trash cans…..a set of light tubes!? He slides quite a few of those into the ring and then crouches back down yet again for even more toys! His signature barbed wire baseball is slid in and now he goes for one last run as he pulls out two tables and looks to set them up! Carson has laid low a bit in this match but now it seems he’s looking to take control! He stacks them up on top of each other, what in the hell can Carson be thinking!?
WWEFan: We may never know as Eris LeCava lands a hit below the belt, halting Carson’s progress! Carson is left favoring his groin and nearly falls over! I may have spoke too soon there though as a recovering Y2Impact chimes in with the Evisceration and leaves him laying this time around! Eris follows up for her team mate with a swift leg drop onto his throat! Eris looks up to admire her work — ONLY TO SEE ARIA COME BY WITH A HURRICANRANA ON Y2IMPACT! Eris is right on Aria as she tries to get up, kneeing her in the stomach and then planting her once again but this time with a fallaway slam! She back away as she notices HBG looking to take over! She climbs up the stairs and enters the ring! She grabs that can, heads over to the corner — and tosses it directly onto the body of Carson! She is on the apron herself……INTERSTELLAR! THE RED ARROW ONTO THAT TRASH CAN AS THE FORCE OF HER AND THE JAGGED EDGES OF THAT CRUSHED CAN SANDWICH CARSON AGAINST THE CONCRETE! HBG is temporarily in pain but that settles as she and Eris do their best to roll Carson back into the ring, they are successful at doing so but only HBG is lucky enough to get back into the ring because Ryan Savage grabs Eris and tosses her right into the steel steps! HBG is in a panic as she looks for a pin on Carson before Ryan finishes with Eris and gets in the ring!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEE!!!!!……TWOOOOOOO!!!!……THRR —
Kawajai: JESUS CHRIST! CAILIN IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE AS SHE INTERRUPTS WITH A ROLL OF BARBED WIRE WHICH SHE WRAPS AROUND HBG’S NECK! HBG is putting her hands up, pulling away at the wire and blocking it with her fingertips to make sure the wire doesn’t cut deeply against her throat! Cailin delivering a Russian legsweep with help from that wire! Team Cross is looking to get back their momentum as Starr Stan and Drake Jaeger fight in the crowd! Starr Stan lifts Jaeger up, gripping his ankle as he drops it down directly on his knee, causing Jaeger to fall onto his side! That ankle of his is in great pain, he’s trying to crawl off but Starr quickly grabs a chair and slams it down directly on his back!
WWEFan: The brutality is off the charts! Ryan Savage has a big grip on Eris’ hair, I’m surprised he hasn’t yanked a chunk out with how he’s dragging her! He SMASHES her face right into the steps! AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN! Eris is the first to sport a crimson mask and it’s at the hands of this madman! HBG sees what is going on and reaches out but she still must worry about Cailin who whips that barbed wire against her skin! Cailin drops it and then walks around, trying to get near HBG’s blind spot so she can watch her get up to her feet, she must have something in mind! THE TEXAS TWO-STEP! THAT ACE CRUSHER OF HERS CONNECTING TO PERFECTION! Y2Impact rolls back into the ring to ruin her moment, kneeing her in the gut and then lifting her up for a powerbomb, but again Aria is after him! THE HOLLYWOOD HANGOVER! THAT SPRINGBOARD BULLDOG OF HERS TAKING DOWN Y2IMPACT!
Kawajai: While this goes down Tiberius Jones has come to and goes for Ryan Savage, wanting to hop the barricade to help the downed and bloodied Eris but he can only make it halfway before Carson uses what’s left of his energy to dash toward him and send him right back near the crowd with a Thesz press! Ryan is left to his own devices as he is taking Eris out of the equation, Starr is taking Drake all of the way to the back of the club and near the stage area and now Carson and Tiberius are literally a few inches away from the crowd and throwing blows! The only people in the ring are The Mercenaries, Cailin Dillon and Aria Jaxon, and out of those four the only one left still standing is Aria who is now doing her best to help Cailin come to! Cailin has started to regain her senses as she has risen to her feet! HBG is the first to get up out of The Mercenaries though, having sneakily gotten ahold of one of those kendo sticks as she smacks the side of Aria with it! Aria drops to a knee but here comes Cailin to knock it out of her hand with a kick! Then a boot to the gut!
WWEFan: The Heart Break Gal is in trouble here! TEXAS TWISTEEERRR!!! OH! HBG pushes Cailin away just in the nick of time! Y2IMPACT WITH A CHAIR SHOT TO THE ONCOMING CAILIN! CAILIN SIDESTEPS IT! IMP JUST NAILED HBG AS HIS FACE DROPS IN SHOCK! Y2Impact is so distracted that he is only brought back into the match by the shouts of Cailin! BOOT TO THE CHAIR, SENDING IT RIGHT INTO THE BRIDGE OF IMP’S NOSE! Y2Impact falls over as Aria and Cailin hover over him, he is left at their mercy! The two of them each grab one of Y2Impact’s arms and drag him around the ring! They finally stop and where they are is a dangerous place! Y2Impact is right next to those light tubes! Cailin grabs about three or four of them and places them up against the ropes before going back to help Aria hold him up! Aria Jaxon has Y2Impact by his hair, keeping him up as he can only look on in his weakened state! She puts her foot behind him — AND DRIVES HIS FACE RIGHT INTO THOSE LIGHT TUBES! THE CURBSTOMP! Y2IMPACT’S HEAD WAS STOMPED DOWN INTO EACH AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE LIGHT TUBES AS THEY BROKE AGAINST HIS FACE! Y2IMPACT IS SHAKING, CONVULSING ON THE MAT AS HE IS ALREADY SOAKED IN BLOOD! HIS FACE IS ENTIRELY RED ALONG WITH HIS BLONDE HAIR! SHARDS OF THOSE LIGHT TUBES ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE AND THE MERCURY IS IN THE AIR, PERHAPS HAVING GOTTEN INTO IMP’S WOUND AND SEARING AT HIS SKIN AS WELL! CAILIN WASTES NO TIME LEAPING TO THE TOP ROPE! PHOENIX SPLASH ONTO Y2IMPACT! SHE HOOKS THE LEG, SHE’S COVERING!
Kawajai: THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO GET DOWN FOR A COVER BUT LUZMALA IS GRABBING HIM, TRYING TO KEEP HIM FROM GETTING INTO POSITION! LUZMALA KNOWS HOW DANGEROUSLY CLOSE THIS IS BECOMING! Ashten Cross has had enough as he takes off that suit of his and heads over to the big man! A right to the face! Then a left! Ashten Cross is stepping up to the plate to help his roster as he is going as fast as he can! The referee turns his attention back to the match as he gets in position, the count has begun!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!……..TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!………THREEEEEEEE —
WWEFan: Y2IMPACT KICKED OUT AT THE VERY LAST SECOND, SAVING HEXA-GUN! HOW IN THE HELL WAS HE ABLE TO DO THAT!? EVEN WITH THAT DISTRACTION, THAT HAD TO HAVE BEEN INSTINCT, SOMEHOW SOMEWAY, HE FOUND ENOUGH IN THE TANK TO LIFT THAT SHOULDER UP, BUT THAT MAY HAVE BEEN ALL THE HE HAD LEFT AS HE TURNS OVER AND DRIFTS IN AND OUT OF CONSCIOUSNESS IN A GROWING POOL OF HIS OWN BLOOD! Cailin and Aria can’t believe it, they’re just talking amongst themselves in awe as — OH! HBG with a forearm to Cailin! HBG is on her knees, still recovering from that chair shot as she is trying to rise back up to her feet — BUT THEN ARIA ELBOWS HER IN THE FACE AND THEN SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES WITH THE “ONE NIGHT STAND”, shutting her down again!
Kawajai: On the outside Ashten’s doing his best but is getting overwhelmed! Luzmala with a punch to the throat, cutting Ashten Cross off! Luzmala leans in, looking to finish the job but Ryan Savage has those steel steps and lifts them over his head! He TOSSES them into Luzmala as the big man falls over, those steps just collided into his skull, we might not see him getting up for a while! Hold on! With Ryan having left his attention off of Eris, she is able to slide into the ring behind the unsuspecting Vixens! She can hardly stand as she has that barbed wire bat Carson introduced in her hand! She slings it over her shoulder, winds up….AND SLAMS IT INTO THE BACK OF ARIA’S HEAD! THE BARBED WIRE CONNECTS AS IT GETS CAUGHT IN HER HAIR! ARIA FALLS OVER IN PAIN, I DON’T KNOW IF SHE’LL BE ABLE TO GET BACK UP AFTER THAT! THE REFEREE LEANS IN TO CHECK ON HER AS CAILIN AND ERIS LOCK EYES! These two aren’t going to waste their time, this has broken out into a fist fight!
Kawajai: Isn’t that what this match has been from the start? This isn’t even a match, this is a chaotic brawl and right now we’re seeing it! There’s so much action that we’re forced to go to a split screen on this broadcast, Starr Stan and Drake Jaeger are now on that stage where we saw a performance only twenty minutes ago, and Tiberius Jones and Carson Ramsay are fighting up to the stairs of the club! Carson Ramsay is clubbing TJ in the back of the head as he retreats and it seems that Tiberius has had enough of that as he turns around!
Tiberius Jones: Ka….me….ha….me….HAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
WWEFan: THAT DOUBLE OPEN PALM THRUST TO THE CHEST CONNECTS AS CARSON RAMSAY GOES TUMBLING DOWN THE CLUB STAIRS, BARELY SAVING HIMSELF AS HE GRABS ONTO PART OF THE RAILING! Tiberius and Carson have some huge distance now and after a spill like that I don’t know how Carson is even bothering to try and crawl back up! It seems both halves of the EAW Tag Team Champions are picking up momentum! Drake with another Solar Flare and then he follows it up with the Final Flash! Starr Stan falls over as he is forced to lean against the technical equipment on the stage, sputtering and confused from that elbow, he must have been rocked pretty bad! Drake Jaeger backs away, he must be planning something big! With a full head of steam here he comes running to Starr!
Kawajai: POP UP EUROPEAN UPPERCUT BY STARR STAN, STOPPING DRAKE! Drake falls right into Starr Stan, ending up in his clutches….EXPLODER INTO THE EQUIPMENT! You know Drake’s back must be in immense pain! Starr Stan picks the ankle, getting him in the hold to stop him from getting off the stage and then guiding him where he wants him to go! A grab of the hair! Starr Stan has Drake high up in the air, vertical suplex? Doesn’t look so — A PILEDRIVER TRANSITION INTO THE HARD STAGE SET UP! Starr Stan changing up his arsenal for the big return! The back of Drake’s head is now bloody but it looks like he won’t accept defeat, he’s grabbing Starr’s leg! Starr steps right on the hand! He heads to the equipment, grabs a wire, and is CHOKING Drake Jaeger! Drake has tried to preoccupy Starr throughout this match and now he wants to end that, Starr isn’t letting go! Drake Jaeger is frantically attempting to get out of this, trying to gouge at Starr’s face but those wires are getting the best of him, Drake’s arms go limp, I think he’s passed out!
WWEFan: Think????? He’s out cold! Starr Stan has gotten rid of Drake Jaeger finally as he drops to a knee and starts to rest up, he’s getting ready to head back to the ring and finish this, but in the ring things may already be wrapping up as Cailin and Eris have still been going at it! As that happens the TJ and Carson fight is getting wilder and wilder by the minute and Ryan Savage seems to have decided to sit out following his interaction with Luzmala, he only decided to be in this match in the hopes of getting another title shot and right now he must be thinking he’s done enough! Ashten yells at him to get back in this, the tension as we reach closer and closer to the inevitable end is building up! At the balcony Carson and Tiberius are still duking it out! Spinning backfist, sending Carson right into the balcony railing! Carson nearly falls over but saves himself and comes back with the Wicked Charms lariat! Carson scoops TJ off of the ground and is going for his next move — but TJ with a drop toe hold, sending Carson’s face into the wall! TJ follows it up, GORY BOMB!
Eris and Cailin are on the top rope trading blows! Eris has Cailin’s head and knees her in the face, making her fall back! Eris is now fully perched but Cailin is persistent, jumping back up! Cailin almost loses her footing when met with another blow but stops herself from falling to the floor! Cailin is now very close to the outside, she’s hanging on by a thread and Eris is just prying at those hands, trying to pull her off the turnbuckle and leaving her to fall! Cailin almost falls over — BUT THEN SITS UP TO CRACK SKULLS WITH CAILIN, A HEADBUTT! Cailin is now repositioning herself, she’s going for that Texas Twister again, and this time she’s moved Eris over to those two tables Carson set up previously! Just when I thought this match couldn’t get anymore crazy, it looks like Cailin is going to raise the stakes! Cailin has her arms wrapped around Eris’ head, she looks to leap off…..BUT HBG MESSES WITH HER BALANCE AND PUSHES HER OFF EARLY, CAILIN FALLS FORWARD WITH ERIS BEING DRAGGED DOWN WITH HER AS THEY GO THROUGH THE TABLES! THE TWO ARE BURIED IN THE REMNANTS OF THE TABLE AS THEY LAY MOTIONLESS!
Kawajai: Ashten Cross is demanding Ryan check on her, reminding him of the situation, reminding Ryan of what’s at stake! Having come to that realization Ryan Savage is begrudgingly heading over to the tables, throwing away all of the broken pieces to try and get Cailin’s body out of the wreckage, but as he does so there is someone creeping up behind him! Y2Impact has a broken part of those light tubes from ringside, and jabs Ryan in the back with the shard! Ryan Savage falls over as Y2Impact then breaks what’s left of the shard against his face! Y2Impact is a bloody mess and HBG is holding the ropes to keep herself up, but even while they are both still shaken, they are able to smile to themselves as it seems everything is falling into place! Y2Impact rolls into the ring as he and HBG look to see that Aria is still on the ground, she still hasn’t been able to come back from that bat shot! The Mercenaries smell blood in the water and circle around her, things aren’t looking good!
WWEFan: Aria won’t be alone though! Starr Stan is heading into the ring to back her up! Aria sees Starr and right away tries to pull herself up to make at least some kind of two on two situation here! Starr Stan gets to ringside, enters the squared circle, and It’s a staredown between the four of them! We are at a stand still — but it is soon broken as they charge each other! OH! Smart thinking by Starr Stan as he side steps Y2Impact instead of facing him, going for HBG who was headed towards Aria and catching her off guard! HBG throws some elbows Starr’s way but Starr takes those elbows on the chin and fights through the pain! OLYMPIC SLAM ON THE HEART BREAK GAL! Imp goes for Starr a second time and this time the attack works! THE FLIP SIDE! Starr Stan rolls back over onto his feet but damn it, now there’s Tiberius Jones who leaves him hanging throat first with the ropes! Starr Stan backs away, barely able to breathe — AND GETS NAILED BY THE EVISCERATION!!! There’s a still another member he must worry about! Y2Impact turns around and Aria Jaxon is there waiting! THE CALIFORNIA CRUSH! ARIA JAXON USING THE LAST OF HER ENERGY TO HIT THE MOVE, SHE’S OUT OF IT! Tiberius sees this and tries to pick up the pieces, but CARSON RAMSAY! CARSON RAMSAY IS THERE WITH A STEEL CHAIR! TJ and Carson have went for most of the night and after their encounter you know Tiberius wants none of that! He tries to walk away, but walks right into the bloody and recovering Ryan Savage, WHO TURNS HIM AROUND QUICK AS A WHIP! EDGING! HUMANITY! OUUUUUTTTTTT!!!!!!! RIGHT ON THE FLOOR!!!! RYAN SAVAGE FULLY COMMITTING HIMSELF TO THE TEAM AS HE TAKES OUT TIBERIUS!
Kawajai: The Mercenaries are crawling out of the ring, trying to avoid the risk of a pin! HBG has escaped and Imp is looking to fall out himself, but Starr Stan has him! THE ANKLE LOCK! THE ANKLE LOCK IS LOCKED IN AS STARR HAS Y2IMPACT DEAD CENTER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! Y2IMPACT HAS BEEN THROUGH HELL THROUGHOUT THIS MATCH AS HE LOOKS AROUND AT HIS SURROUNDINGS! HE HAS HIS HAND UP, HE MAY HAVE TO TAP! STARR IS ABOUT TO PICK UP THE SUBMISSION, BUT WAIT! HE DROPPED THE ANKLE! WHAT!?
WWEFan: Starr Stan is pointing at Carson Ramsay! He’s telling Carson to get in the ring! Starr Stan said he wants to improve his legacy by helping EAW and making it for the better, and I think this action might be part of the idea as he leaves the floor to young Carson Ramsay! Starr has Y2Impact by the tights and throws him Carson’s way, Carson slides a chair behind him with his foot and then gets Imp in the double underhook — THE FAITHFUL EIGHTY NINE! THE MOVE CONNECTS AS CARSON COVERS AND STARR STAN GUARDS THE COVER WITH RYAN AND ASHTEN ALSO LOOKING ON! THE COAST APPEARS TO BE CLEAR!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!…….TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!………..THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE —
Kawajai: UGH! THERE WAS STILL ONE MEMBER LEFT UNACCOUNTED FOR, LUZMALA HAS HAD ENOUGH TIME TO REST AS HE YANKS CARSON RAMSAY OUT! NO DIOS TO THE FLOOR! Ryan takes a shortcut through the ring to get a direct shot at Luzmala but Starr Stan beats him to the punch as he dives to take care of Luzmala! Starr and Luzmala are going at it as they head away from the ring, it’s up to Ryan but now he’s got to turn around though! DRAKE JAEGER! DRAKE JAEGER HAS SLID INTO THE RING ON SPAGHETTI LEGS HAVING COME BACK TO HIS SENSES! GALICK GUN TO RYAN! DRAKE IS ON HIS BACK, CUTTING IN AND OUT, STILL NEEDING TO GET BACK THE AIR IN HIS LUNGS AS HBG IS SCALING TO THE TOP ROPE, DOING HER BEST TO STAY BALANCED AS SHE IS EXHAUSTED HERSELF! INTERSTELLAR FOR GOOD MEASURE! HBG CLUTCHES HER RIBS AND FALLS OVER AS Y2IMPACT CRAWLS OVER AND THEN TAKES THE PIN!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Killing Strangers” by Marilyn Manson plays as the club goes silent. Y2Impact and HBG look at each other in shock, not believing it for a moment until realization sets in and they meet up in the middle of the ring. Drake Jaeger joins in on the celebration before rolling out of the ring and pulling up a recovering Eris while Tiberius clutches his head, looks around to make sense of things and lets out a laugh. The crowd’s shock wear off as well and trash begins to be thrown into the ring.)
Ring Announcer: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS……….HEXAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGUUUUNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WWEFan: I….just can’t believe it. They won. They actually won it. Team Cross had to have been one of the best teams to ever come at Hexa-Gun, it truly looked like they had it there….but then Luzmala…..that number’s game Hexa-Gun likes to play has saved them once again but credit where credit is due, they were the superior unit in this match. That was the biggest threat Hexa-Gun has ever faced, and the biggest and most violent match they have fought in, and they survived. As much as it pains me to say it, come next Sunday Voltage will be under new management, and that new management is Hexa-Gun. Dark times lie ahead for us on Sunday nights, Kawa.
(EMTs come out to check on the status of the Team Cross members as stretchers are being brought out to ringside. Drake and Jones, The Mercenaries and Eris LeCava are now all on their feet, basking in the moment as they taunt the crowd. Ashten Cross is in deep thought as he thinks of what transpired, putting his head down and running his fingers through his hair.)
Kawajai: I’m speechless. This can’t be happening — CAN ANYONE EVEN DEFEAT THESE GUYS!?
(Kawajai takes off his headset for a moment and watches on in frustration. In the ring Y2Impact drops down to a knee and gets near the ropes, sticking his head out to talk to Ashten Cross)
Y2Impact: (without microphone) We told you what would happen, Ashten! We told you that you would be giving us the keys to this place! You should have learned by now that nobody, NOBODY, can defeat us!
(With nothing to say, Ashten Cross walks away with a look of shame on his face as we fade away from the Marquee Fight Club.)
(EAW Logo Buzzes)
(After a few minutes, the camera comes back on the air as both Kawajai and WWEFan are shown at the announce table while the New York crowd remains seated)
Kawajai: Thank you for joining us here, ladies and gentlemen, for the upcoming Unsanctioned Street Fight between Ares Vendetta and Tyler Parker. Now, normally, this time would be used for a replay of the show you just watched, but we’ve been allowed to show this portion of the show in its entirety.
WWEFan: That’s right – there’s no LEGAL obligation to show the upcoming match, because Fighting Spirit 2 has officially ended. Keep in mind that this being an Unsanctioned bout, both people in this match have signed legal documents stating that while EAW will host their match, they hold no legal responsibility for whatever harm Ares and Tyler bring to one another.
Kawajai: As you can see here, there is no pyro or video package to play for this upcoming match. In fact, there is no obligation for anyone here to remain for it. Fan and myself have volunteered our services as commentators to call this one for you, the Referee in the ring has volunteered his services to officiate this match, and all of these fans in attendance are sticking around for it.
WWEFan: You think they’d miss a chance to see their boy, Tyler Parker? No way!
Kawajai: Well, nonetheless, without there being no video package of any sort prior to this contest, I’ll go ahead and give you a rundown of the history between these two men as their conflict began following Road To Redemption when Tyler Parker left the Dynasty brand to come to Voltage, immediately challenging Mr. DEDEDE for his new Answers World Championship. Ares Vendetta – having injured the previous Answers World Champion, immediately clashed with Tyler as he felt Tyler was in his way. Or so it seemed that simple. At King of Elite, it became clear that Ares Vendetta had more motives as he brought out his catatonic father, Robbie V, and forced him to watch the bout with the intention of showing him up. The match would be a violent, hard-hitting affair, but Ares would end up capturing the win soon after controversially assaulting Tyler with an illegal lowblow and several chair shots. Tyler Parker would use that controversy to get underneath Ares’ skin later on in order to provoke a rematch out of him, and since then, both men have been at one another’s throats. They’ve beaten one another, bloodied one another, clashed with each other with everything these two phenomenal athletes have, but it didn’t seem to be quite enough for either man as they’ve agreed to this Unsanctioned Street Fight that you’re about to see right now. Ares Vendetta and Tyler Parker have come here tonight to settle a score, by any means necessary.
(The crowd loudly chants for Tyler Parker as the camera transitions to a shot of the whole Marquee Fight Club)
Announcer: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall…. AND IS AN UNSANCTIONED STREET FIGHT!!…..
(“Monster” by contRoVersy plays all throughout the arena as the crowd loudly erupts with a chorus of boos while Ares Vendetta makes his way out to the set-up, – dressed in black combat boots, cargo pants, gloves, a protective vest, and a long-sleeve athletic shirt underneath – making his way towards the ring past the heated New York City fans)
Announcer: First, making his way towards the ring…. From the Land of the Rising Sun…. Weighing in at 217 pounds…. HE IS “THE OMEN”…. ARES VEEEENNNNNNNNDDDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTAAAAAA!!!….
WWEFan: Ares doesn’t even look like he notices that merciless New York crowd whatsoever as he makes his way to the ring! Nothing but complete focus in his cold eyes, and just take a look at the unique gear he’s sporting tonight for this bout! He’s ready to go to war!
(Ares Vendetta crouches in a corner of the ring as “Monster” fades out… After several seconds of silence, the crowd deafeningly erupts with cheers as “Never Catch Me” by Travis Scott plays all throughout the Marquee Fight Club)
Kawajai: Listen to this crowd!
(A fired-up Tyler Parker makes his way out to the set-up in a black sleeveless t-shirt, dark blue jeans and black boots with his wrists/fists taped. Tyler closes his eyes and crouches on the balcony area, then letting out a battle cry as the crowd cheers him on before he makes his way towards the ring)
Announcer: And his opponent!…. Making his way towards the ring!…. From San Diego, California!… HE IS “THE FACE OF EAW”…. TYLER PAAAAAAARRRRRRRRKKKKKKEEEEEERRRRRRRRRR!!!….
Kawajai: Ares seems to have went to the outside as Tyler enters the ring, possibly just refusing to let the fans get some kind of staredown or confrontation of any sort before this match has started, but Tyler doesn’t even seem to give a damn! He’s got determination filled in his eyes as he looks out towards this ruckus New York crowd that cheers him on! He’s ready to go! He’s ready to end this!
(“Never Catch Me” fades out as the Referee calls for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
WWEFan: Just a formality, basically, but this contest is now underway as Ares remains on the outside, looking reluctant to get in the ring as Tyler doesn’t take his eyes off of him whatsoever… The crowd’s egging Ares on to get in as he demands the Referee make sure to keep Tyler away from him as he cautiously does… Tyler’s not moving a muscle as he watches Ares enter! I’m amazed he’s able to contain himself… Ares is back in–AND TYLER COMES IMMEDIATELY CHARGING STRAIGHT FOR HIM WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM! ARES PUTS HIS ARMS UP TO BLOCK THE INCOMING RUNNING HIGH KNEE, BUT IT’S STRONG ENOUGH TO SEND HIM THROUGH THE ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE!! This match has already gone from zero to a hundred as Tyler immediately exits to the outside to follow up on the attack! Ares is back to his feet and quickly makes his way around the ring, rolling back in before Tyler can get to him! Tyler shows no caution whatsoever as he slides right back into the ring! He’s met with stomps to the back of the skull and spine by Ares! Look at this! Tyler’s just willing himself through the onslaught of Ares as he rises back to his feet! Ares nails Tyler with a LOUD forearm to the face!
Kawajai: And another sickeningly loud forearm connects off the face of Tyler Parker as he nearly drops to one knee! Ares looking to finish the job as he charges into the ropes! TYLER CHARGES STRAIGHT AFTER HIM AND NAILS ARES WITH A BIG RUNNING KNEE INTO THE GUT AGAINST THE ROPES! ANOTHER KNEE! ANOTHER! FOREARM TO THE FACE OF ARES! A HEADBUTT INTO THE SKULL OF ARES! ARES MANAGES TO FORCE TYLER OFF, BUT THAT’S NOT GONNA BE ENOUGH AS TYLER JUST AS QUICKLY COMES BACK TO HIM WITH ANOTHER ONSLAUGHT OF SHOTS!! ARES MANAGES TO FORCE TYLER OFF ONCE AGAIN AS TYLER IS PUSHED DOWN TO THE CANVAS, BUT HE ROLLS RIGHT BACK UP! ARES EXPLODES OFF THE ROPES WITH A BIG LARIAT! It’s not enough to take Tyler off of his feet as he stands his ground! HE THROWS A LARIAT OF HIS OWN INTO ARES! Ares remains standing! Both men look thrown off their game by those respective hits! AND IT ALL BREAKS DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS THEY THROW IT ALL TO THE SIDE FOR A STRAIGHT-UP FIST FIGHT!! BOTH MEN THROWING LEFTS AND RIGHTS INTO ONE ANOTHER AS THE REFEREE DOESN’T EVEN BEGIN TO THINK OF GETTING BETWEEN THEM TO STOP IT!! BOTH MEN SWINGING SO POWERFULLY INTO ONE ANOTHER!
WWEFan: AND IT LOOKS LIKE TYLER’S WINNING AS ARES BEGINS SLOWING DOWN WHILE TYLER CONTINUES TO MALICIOUSLY THROW LEFTS AND RIGHTS INTO HIM! ARES NOW ON THE DEFENSIVE AS HE DESPERATELY TRIES TO BLOCK THE INCOMING BLOWS! Tyler tries to top it off with a lariat, but Ares manages to sidestep the attempt to send Tyler into the ropes! TYLER JUMPS TO THE SECOND ROPE! FINAL CHAPTER!!! NO–ARES RUSHES INTO TYLER AND SENDS HIM PLUMMETING TO THE OUTSIDE! Tyler Parker crashing and burning as he nails the ring apron on his way down! Ares needs to use this time he just bought himself to recuperate after that attack he just took at the hands of Tyler!
Kawajai: He doesn’t have much time for a breather as Tyler’s already making his way back to his feet… Ares seems to have something in mind here… He’s looking for something big as he goes charging into the ropes! COMING BACK! SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE ROPES CONNECTS AS BOTH HE AND TYLER PARKER ARE SENT INTO THE BAR IN FRONT OF THE FANS!! ARES ISN’T FINISHED YET AS HE CONTINUES THE ATTACK–SENDING TYLER CRASHING STRAIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Ares immediately rolls back into the ring with a fire in his eyes! He wants to destroy Tyler Parker tonight! He wants to get him out of his way! Tyler’s already just about to his feet as Ares rushes into a corner of the ring… HE COMES CHARGING WITH SOMETHING BIG IN MIND! HE–JESUS, ARES CLEARS THE DAMN ENTIRE RINGPOST WITH A SENTON PLANCHA ONTO TYLER PARKER ON THE OUTSIDE!!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN!! THIS CROWD IS LOVING IT REGARDLESS OF THEIR HATE FOR THIS MAN, ARES!
WWEFan: You can hate him to his very core, but you’ve got to respect how damn good he is, Kawa! He’s throwing all caution to the wind in this fight! Both men struggling to get back to their feet, but Ares is obviously the first to do so as he nails Tyler with a big knee to the mid-section just as Tyler gets up! He sends Tyler into the guardrail! No–Tyler counters it into his own as he sends Ares crashing spine-first into it! Tyler drops to one knee, still in pain, but he needs to push through it! He’s got a hate in his eyes as he looks at Ares! TYLER SPRINGS UP AND CHARGES! HE’S SENT UP AND OVER THE GUARDRAIL AND RIGHT INTO THE NEW YORK FANS!! Ares may have saved his ass there! He needs to follow it up! Keep himself in control for as long as possible he wants to walk out of this the winner! His back has to be in pain as he turns around while Tyler climbs back to his feet… Ares swings into the back of Tyler’s skull with a big forearm as Tyler’s sent stumbling further into the fans! ARES LEAPS TO ON TOP OF THE BARRICADE, LOOKING TO FLY! TYLER GRABS A FAN’S CHAIR AND CHUCKS IT STRAIGHT INTO ARES’ SKULL!! ARES DROPS DOWN TO THE MAT WITH THAT CHAIR WRAPPED AROUND HIS HEAD AS TYLER GETS BACK TO HIS FEET! Tyler quickly reaches over the guardrail, pulling Ares right back up by that chair around his head! Ares is trying to fight back as he swings an elbow!
Kawajai: It’s not gonna do him much good! He’s not only dazed, but nowhere close enough for any to connect as Tyler pulls the chair off of his head! AND TYLER CRACKS THAT CHAIR OFF THE BACK OF ARES’ SKULL!! ARES STILL SOMEHOW ON HIS FEET AS HE TURNS AROUND, CLUTCHING THE GUARDRAIL! TYLER PARKER WITH ANOTHER SICKENING – ABSOLUTELY SICKENING – CHAIRSHOT OFF THE SKULL OF ARES!! ARES ALMOST COLLAPSES BEFORE TYLER DROPS THE CHAIR AND GRABS A HOLD OF HIM! I think Ares may have just let this match slip through his fingers! Blood running down the forehead of Ares as Tyler nails him with a shot to the face! Another hard shot! Tyler now… Looking for something as he starts climbing up on that guardrail with Ares in his grasp… No, no, no–NO, TYLER LIFTS ARES UP!! A DESTRUCTIVE SUPLEX OFF OF THAT GUARDRAIL AND STRAIGHT INTO THE STEPS LEADING DOWN TO THE RING!! ARES VENDETTA IS WRITHING IN PAIN HERE AS THE CROWD EATS IT UP! THEY’RE LOVING THIS!
WWEFan: THESE FANS ARE EVERY BIT AS SICK AND TWISTED AS TYLER PARKER IS! How can you do that to a man?! Ares’ back may be BROKEN from that, and Tyler would think nothing of it! The look on Tyler’s face says it all! He’s not finished yet! Not even close! He grabs a hold of Ares! Pulling him in! HE’S GOT HIM UP! POWERBOMB!! A SHEER DROP POWERBOMB ONTO THOSE STEPS–JESUS CHRIST!! ARES VENDETTA JUST BARELY MANAGED TO PROTECT THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AS HIS BACK TOOK THE FULL BRUNT OF THE DAMAGE! HE BETTER THANK HIS LUCKY STARS HE’S GOT THAT PROTECTIVE VEST ON TONIGHT! BUT LOOK AT THIS! TYLER PARKER GOES STRAIGHT FOR IT! HE’S RIPPING THAT VEST RIGHT OFF OF ARES! HE THROWS IT INTO THE CROWD BEHIND HIM AS ARES IS LEFT NOW COMPLETELY UNPROTECTED AND DEFENSELESS! TYLER’S STILL NOT FINISHED AS HE RIPS THAT SHIRT OFF OF ARES NOW! ARES IS TRYING TO FIGHT BACK, BUT TYLER NAILS HIM WITH SEVERAL HARD SHOTS TO THE FACE!
Kawajai: TYLER REACHES OVER AND GRABS ANOTHER FAN’S CHAIR AS HE CRACKS IT OVER THE SKULL OF A KNEELING ARES! HE GRABS ANOTHER NEARBY CHAIR AND SWINGS IT DOWN ACROSS THE BACK OF ARES’ SKULL!! HE GRABS A THIRD–LOWBLOW!!! A DESPERATE ARES VENDETTA SOMEHOW CATCHES TYLER WITH A LOWBLOW! Blood’s still running down the face of Ares as he looks to be trying to escape now, perhaps! He’s crawling his way up the stairs as a damaged Tyler tries to follow behind! Ares may have bitten off more than he can chew tonight! Tyler’s in a great deal of pain, but he’s right on Ares’ tail as he goes up the stairs! This crowd cheering Tyler on so loudly, I can barely hear myself! Ares manages to get up–BUT TYLER PARKER DOES THE SAME AS HE LOCKS THE WAIST OF ARES!! NO! DON’T DO IT! GERMAN SUPLEX DOWN THOSE STAIRS!!! ARES IS FIGHTING IT! HE’S STRUGGLING WITH LITERALLY EVERYTHING LEFT IN HIS BODY NOT TO LET THIS CONNECT! HIS CAREER COULD BE OVER IF TYLER CONNECTS WITH THIS! ARES CATCHES TYLER OFF THE SIDE OF THE SKULL WITH A BIG ELBOW! ANOTHER ELBOW TO TYLER! TYLER NOW WITH CLUBBING BLOWS INTO THE BACK OF ARES! ARES THROWS HIS HEAD BACK INTO THE FACE OF TYLER!
WWEFan: Ares quickly turns around! DON’T–ARES TACKLES TYLER AS THEY BOTH GO FALLING DOWN THOSE STAIRS!! BOTH MEN’S BODIES BOUNCING OFF THE STAIRS BEFORE STOPPING THEMSELVES MID-WAY DOWN! Forget somebody’s career getting ended tonight! If this keeps up, BOTH men won’t have a career! Ares makes his way back up those stairs as a resilient Tyler refuses to give up, following after him! He’s reaching out for him, but Ares is too far out of his grasp! Ares makes it to the top of the set-up as Tyler attempts to keep up… Tyler’s up–AND IMMEDIATELY CAUGHT WITH A SUPERKICK OUT OF NOWHERE BY ARES! HE KEEPS TYLER ON HIS FEET AS HE PULLS HIM IN, LAYING INTO HIS SPINE WITH CLUBBING SHOTS! HE PULLS TYLER IN! PICKING HIM UP!! HE’S GONNA POWERBOMB HIM DOWN THE DAMN STAIRS!! TYLER WITH A BIG RIGHT HAND INTO THE SKULL OF ARES! ANOTHER! AND A THIRD CONNECTS AS HE DROPS TYLER! TYLER MANAGES TO LAND ON HIS FEET AS HE GRABS A HOLD OF ARES BY HIS HEAD AND DRIVES HIM STRAIGHT INTO A NEARBY WALL! HE CHARGES STRAIGHT INTO ARES WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE SIDE OF THE SKULL NOW! HE GRABS A HOLD OF ARES ONCE MORE… AND HE SENDS HIM THROUGH A NEARBY DOOR AS BOTH MEN SPILL OUT INTO A BACKSTAGE AREA!!
Kawajai: Tyler seems to be back in control as this contest has completely gone off the rails, if was ever on them to begin with! Tyler fights through the pain he’s in to follow behind a battered Ares Vendetta! He clutches the hair of Ares as he drags him back to his feet… AND SENDS ARES CRASHING INTO A NEARBY CATERING TABLE!! THE REFEREE AND THE FANS ARE LITERALLY FOLLOWING BEHIND THESE TWO MEN AS TYLER CONTINUES HIS ONSLAUGHT! HE FLIPS THE TABLE OVER ONTO ARES AND STOMPS AWAY ONTO IT! ARES IS TRAPPED UNDERNEATH THAT TABLE! TYLER PUSHES A SECURITY GUARD OUT OF HIS WAY AND GRABS A FIRE EXTINGUISHER OFF OF THE WALL! Ares finally gets that table off of him as Tyler’s got that extinguisher in his grasp! Ares needs to get out of here if he wants to leave New York City with a career! Ares clutches the handle of a nearby door to aid him as he drags himself back to his feet! Half of his face is covered in blood! TYLER THROWS THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER LIKE A GODDAMN JAVELIN AT ARES VENDETTA!! ARES BARELY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS THE EXTINGUISHER SHATTERS THROUGH THE GLASS OF THAT DOOR!!
WWEFan: HE NEEDS TO GET OUT OF THERE! HE NEEDS TO GET OUT OF HERE NOW! THIS ENTIRE DAMN CITY! TYLER’S LOST HIS MIND! HE’S NOT TRYING TO WIN A MATCH! HE’S TRYING TO KILL HIM! ARES STUMBLES AWAY AS TYLER COMES CHARGING STRAIGHT FOR HIM! TYLER CRASHES STRAIGHT INTO HIM IN AN INTERVIEW AREA! ARES IS DOWN AS TYLER IMMEDIATELY GRABS A LIGHTING FIXTURE AND DRIVES IT DOWN INTO ARES’ BODY!! AGAIN! AND AGAIN! IT MISSES ON THE FOURTH ATTEMPT AS ARES FINALLY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! HE’S DESPERATE TO GET AWAY FROM THIS MAN! TYLER GRABS A HOLD OF HIM, BUT ARES THROWS A SICKENING ELBOW INTO THE FACE OF TYLER! HE MAY HAVE A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY HERE!
Kawajai: ARES RIPS A TELEVISION OFF THE WALL OF THAT INTERVIEW AREA!! HE SWINGS IT STRAIGHT INTO THE THE LEFT SHOULDER OF TYLER PARKER! HE SWINGS IT FOR HIS SKULL THIS TIME!! TYLER DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY AS THE TELEVISION GOES FLYING AND SHATTERS ON THE CONCRETE!! THIS CROWD IS STILL FOLLOWING BEHIND THESE MEN AND THE REFEREE AS THEY’VE SURROUNDED BOTH COMPETITORS, CHEERING THEM ON! ARES IS DOWN, LAYING INTO TYLER WITH A FLURRY OF SHOTS! TYLER THROWING SOME OF HIS OWN! HE MANAGES TO KICK ARES OFF OF HIM AS BOTH MEN SCRAMBLE TO THEIR FEET! Ares and Tyler stare down with one another as they rise back up to a vertical base! Ares somehow makes it up first! TYLER SPRINGS UP AND CHARGES STRAIGHT INTO ARES AS BOTH MEN ARE DRIVEN STRAIGHT INTO A NEARBY EXIT DOOR!! TYLER RAMS ARES INTO THE DOOR AGAIN! AND AGAIN!! LAYING INTO HIM WITH SHOTS TO THE GUT! TYLER LETS GO… HE BACKS UP! AND HE CHARGES!! SPEAR!!! HE SPEARS ARES VENDETTA AS THAT DOOR SWINGS OPEN AND BOTH MEN GO CRASHING OUT INTO THE ALLEYWAY OF THIS MARQUEE FIGHT CLUB!!
WWEFan: This is getting too out of hand! They’re literally outside now! I think enough is enough! Somebody put a stop to this already!
Kawajai: There’s no stopping this so long as both men keep going! So long as the Referee is there and the camera’s on them and these rabid fans follow behind! They’re not stopping for a second!
WWEFan: Ares looks like he can barely Goddamn move! He’s desperately grabbing a hold of that dumpster adjacent to the door they just spilled out of as Ares keeps going, trying to get up! Tyler slowly rises back to his feet as well! BOTH MEN SOMEHOW BACK UP! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! TYLER CHARGES!! SPEAR!!! A SECOND–NO, ARES SIDESTEPS IT THIS TIME AS TYLER CRASHES AND BURNS INTO THE FRONT OF THE DUMPSTER!! WHAT A SOUND THAT MADE! ARES REFUSES TO LET IT END HERE AS HE DIVES INTO TYLER WITH A FOREARM! HE GRABS THE HEAD OF TYLER AND SLAMS IT AGAINST THAT DUMPSTER AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN! Ares now… Jesus, he’s a bloody mess… Ares grabs a nearby empty beer bottle… This crowd is every bit as loud outside as they surround these men as they were back in the Marquee Nightclub! ARES BREAKS THAT BOTTLE! NO! STOP HIM, REF! ARES DOESN’T EVEN HESITATE TO DRIVE THE BROKEN BOTTLE INTO TYLER!! TYLER’S GOT THE WRIST OF ARES, STOPPING HIM WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT LEFT!! ARES IS TRYING TO KILL THIS MAN! I SWEAR TO GOD, HE’S ABOUT TO KILL HIM!
Kawajai: TYLER MANAGES TO STOP IT AS HE GRABS THE HEAD OF ARES AND SLAMS HIM INTO THE DUMPSTER! Tyler’s looking to possibly put an end to this as he drags Ares up with him… ARES DRIVES TYLER SPINE-FIRST INTO THAT DUMPSTER! ARES NOW THROWING RAPID SHOTS INTO THE BODY OF TYLER! HE GRABS A HOLD OF TYLER… AND HE SENDS HIM STRAIGHT INTO THE BRICK WALL NEXT TO THE DUMPSTER! HE’S NOT FINISHED YET! HE PULLS TYLER IN! PICKING HIM UP!! DON’T! HE CHARGES!! A RUNNING POWERBOMB SENDS TYLER PARKER FLYING INTO THE SIDE OF THAT DAMN DUMPSTER!!! Tyler Parker is slumped over! He could be out cold! The back of his head just cracking off of that dumpster’s side with that move! And Ares doesn’t even look finished! HE COMES CHARGING STRAIGHT FOR TYLER, LOOKING TO FINISH THE JOB!! A PENALTY KICK TO THE FACE!!! TYLER BARELY MOVES JUST ENOUGH OUT OF THE WAY AS ARES’ LEG MISSES ITS MARK AND HITS THE SIDE OF THE DUMPSTER! A battered Tyler Parker may have just found his saving grace here as he desperately tries to get back to his feet! He’s stumbling!
WWEFan: He needs to get up! ARES STUMBLES FORWARD WITH A SHOT TO THE SPINE OF TYLER! HE TURNS HIM AROUND AND PULLS HIM IN! HE’S GOT HIM UP AGAIN!! NO, COME ON! NOT ANOTHER RUNNING POWERBOMB!!! HOLD ON–TYLER! HE REACHES UP, GRABBING THE LADDER OF A FIRE ESCAPE JUST ABOVE HIM!! ARES CAN’T CONNECT WITH THE POWERBOMB AS TYLER CLUTCHES THAT FIRE ESCAPE! TYLER LIFTS HIMSELF OFF THE SHOULDERS OF ARES! ARES DOESN’T EVEN REALIZE WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED! TYLER DROPS BACK DOWN ONTO HIM!! HURRICANRANA!!! A HURRICANRANA COMPLETELY WHIPS ARES’ BODY AROUND AND SENDS HIM FLYING INTO THE GARBAGE CANS AT THE ENTRANCE OF THE ALLEY!!!
(An Ambulance arrives on the scene as the crowd moves out of the way)
Kawajai: I think that may be it! Both men are down on the dirty, filthy concrete! There’s garbage all over the place! Trash cans strewn about! Ares is a bloody mess! Both may be seriously injured! They don’t know how lucky they are somebody had the mind to call for an ambulance, because these two men have destroyed one another here tonight!
(The EMTs get out of the Ambulance and immediately go to check on Ares Vendetta as the crowd and Referee look on)
WWEFan: I think they’ve done more than enough. They’ve proven their points. They’re both as resilient as they come. Now for the love of God, get these men to a hospital! I think one may be getting a stretcher for Ares as–
Kawajai: HOLD ON–TYLER PARKER IN OUT OF NOWHERE AS HE PUSHES THE EMT OUT OF THE WAY! HE DROPS DOWN, LAYING INTO ARES VENDETTA WITH A MERCILESS ONSLAUGHT OF RIGHT HANDS!! THE EMT’S TRYING TO GET HIM TO PUT A STOP TO IT, BUT TYLER PUSHES HIM AWAY ONCE MORE! HE’S LAYING INTO ARES WITH ALL HE’S GOT! TYLER NOW DRAGGING ARES BACK UP, CLUTCHING HIS HAIR… HE’S GOT HIM ON HIS KNEES AS HE NAILS HIM WITH ANOTHER SICKENING SHOT TO THE FACE! ARES CAN’T EVEN BLOCK ANYTHING BY THIS POINT! HE’S LUCKY TO BE CONSCIOUS! TYLER’S GOT A SADISTIC LOOK IN HIS EYES AS HE GETS IN THE FACE OF HIS OPPONENT! HIS RIVAL! HIS ENEMY!
Tyler: YOU LIKE TO END CAREERS, ARES?!
WWEFan: TYLER PICKS UP ONE OF THOSE GARBAGE CANS! HE CRACKS IT OFF THE SKULL OF ARES!! ANOTHER SHOT TO THE SKULL OF ARES!!
Tyler: SO DO I!!
Kawajai: HE’S LOST ALL CONTROL AS TYLER SHOVES THAT DENTED TRASH CAN ONTO THE UPPER BODY OF ARES! HE GRABS A NEARBY TRASH CAN LID NOW! AND HE SWINGS IT STRAIGHT INTO ARES, COVERED WITH THAT TRASH CAN! ANOTHER SHOT INTO ARES! A THIRD! A FOURTH! A FIFTH! A SIXTH! A SEVENTH! TYLER PARKER IS LITERALLY NOT STOPPING THIS ASSAULT AS ARES DROPS DOWN TO THE GROUND!! TYLER LAYS INTO THAT COMPLETELY DENTED LID AND NOW FINALLY PUTS A STOP TO IT AS HE THROWS THE LID!! PLEASE LET THAT BE IT! PLEASE! COME TO YOUR SENSES, TYLER! YOU’VE WON THIS! JUST COVER HIM AND GO HOME! DON’T DO SOMETHING YOU’LL REGRET!
WWEFan: I don’t think this guy could even hear you if you were right next to his ear, Kawa. He’s lost it. He’s lost in his own little World. I’ve seen that look in people’s eyes plenty of times before, hell, I’ve even seen that look in HIS eyes before. He’s gonna keep going until he’s gone way too far. Tyler pulls that trash can off of a barely conscious Ares Vendetta and grabs a hold of him by his hair once more… Tyler slowly dragging Ares back up… He… Oh God… He’s navigating him towards the street! Somebody stop him already! This crowd looks like they’re loving it! He’s may be trying to end another man’s life and they don’t even give a damn! TYLER’S DRAGGING ARES INTO THE TRAFFIC-FILLED STREET! SOMEBODY STOP HIM! ARES SLIPS FROM TYLER’S GRIP! HE FORCES TYLER OUT INTO THE STREET-JESUS CHRIST!!! A CAR NEARLY WINGS TYLER PARKER AS HE BARELY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!! THE CAR SWERVES AND DAMN NEAR CRASHES AS OTHERS HAVE COME TO A STOP!! TYLER DOESN’T EVEN SEEM TO REALIZE JUST HOW CLOSE HE CAME TO LOSING HIS LIFE AS HE RUSHES INTO ARES! BOTH MEN THROWING SHOTS INTO ONE ANOTHER, BUT TYLER’S GOT CONTROL BACK ALREADY!
Kawajai: HE SENDS ARES STRAIGHT INTO THE FRONT OF THAT AMBULANCE! TYLER BARRELS TOWARDS ARES!! ARES SOMEHOW MANAGES TO SEND TYLER UP AND NAILS A SNAKE EYES AS TYLER’S FACE SMACKS OFF THE HOOD OF THE AMBULANCE!! Ares now… Ares looks completely out of it… I mean, he looks OUT! He’s covered in his own blood, he’s possibly injured, and he’s been through Hell tonight, but he’s still moving as he climbs up on the hood of the Ambulance… I can’t believe he’s managed to turn this around as he perches himself up there! METEORA!!!! No–Hold on! Ares shakes his head? He… He’s climbing up higher! He’s making his way to the top of the ambulance! BUT TYLER PARKER’S PULLING HIMSELF UP! Ares doesn’t see it! Tyler’s using the ambulance to help him up as he climbs behind him! Ares is up on top of that ambulance and turns around to meet a straight shot to the face from a determined Tyler Parker! ARES FIGHTS BACK WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE OF TYLER! ANOTHER BOOT TO TYLER, BUT TYLER STILL FORCES HIS WAY UP THERE WITH ARES, ON TOP OF THAT AMBULANCE!
WWEFan: They’ve somehow ended up in even more dangerous territory with how high up they are! Ares catches Tyler with yet another boot into the face! Tyler’s refusing to stay down as he continues to try climbing back to a vertical base! ARES LOCKS HIS WAIST! HE’S LIFTING HIM UP! TYLER CAN’T EVEN STOP HIM AS HE’S BROUGHT UP…. AND A BRUTAL DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS ON THE TOP OF THAT AMBULANCE!! ARES IS STILL GOING! HE LIFTS TYLER BACK UP… HE’S GOT HIM UP, CLUTCHING THE WRIST OF HIS OPPONENT! HE WANTS TO END IT! KING’S LANDING!!!! THE YAKUZA KICK MISSES AS TYLER SIDESTEPS IT!! HE’S GOT HIM!! ACROSS THE PARK!!!! ACROSS THE PARK ON TOP OF THAT AMBULANCE!! HE LAID HIM OUT! THAT’S IT! THAT’S GOT TO BE IT! TYLER DOESN’T EVEN GO FOR A COVER AS HE STARTS DRAGGING ARES BACK UP! HE’S PULLING HIM UP FOR ANOTHER!! I THINK HE PLANS TO RECREATE HIS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP VICTORY OVER MR. DEDEDE!! ARES SLIPS OUT OF IT!
Kawajai: TYLER’S NOT LETTING THE BATTERED ARES GO AS HE GRABS A HOLD OF HIM, NAILS HIM WITH A FEW MORE SHOTS, AND PULLS HIM IN!! HE PICKS HIM UP!! HE’S GOT HIM UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! DON’T DO IT, TYLER!! JESUS CHRIST–A POWERBOMB FROM THE TOP OF THAT AMBULANCE!!! NO–ARES IS FIGHTING WITH SHOT AFTER SHOT INTO THE FACE OF TYLER! HE MANAGES TO DROP OFF OF TYLER’S SHOULDERS, TRYING TO ESCAPE! TYLER STILL WON’T LET HIM! THERE’S NO GETTING OUT OF THIS FOR ARES TONIGHT! HE’S PULLED BACK UP! ARES THROWS AN ELBOW BACK INTO TYLER’S FACE! HE TURNS AROUND TO MEET A LEFT HAND FROM TYLER! ARES WITH A LEFT SHOT OF HIS OWN! A HEADBUTT LOUDLY CONNECTS INTO THE SKULL OF ARES FROM TYLER! ANOTHER HEADBUTT! A FOREARM! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! ARES IS ABOUT TO FALL ONTO THE HOOD OF THAT AMBULANCE! TYLER SHAKES HIS HEAD AND GRABS A HOLD OF HIM…. HE SENDS ARES FLYING OFF THE OTHER SIDE OF THE AMBULANCE!!!
WWEFan: JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY–ARES LITERALLY JUST SENT FLYING OFF THE AMBULANCE AND DOWN TO THE COLD, HARD GROUND!! ARES SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY–HE’S STILL MOVING!! THE SHOCK AND THE INTENSE PAIN OF THAT FALL HAS BROUGHT HIM STUMBLING AND STRUGGLING TO GET BACK UP ON THE GROUND AS TYLER WATCHES FROM ATOP THE AMBULANCE!! ARES CAN BARELY CONTROL HIMSELF AS HE SOMEHOW GETS JUST BARELY ONTO HIS FEET, PUSHING EVERY CROWD MEMBER OUT OF HIS WAY! TYLER TURNS AROUND AS SOON AS ARES DOES, LOOKING UP!! LOOK OUT!!! MOONSAULT!!!! A MASSIVE MOONSAULT ONTO ARES FROM THE TOP OF THAT AMBULANCE!! TYLER LANDED RIGHT ON TOP OF HIM!! THE REFEREE COUNTS IT!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!……. TWO!!!!!!!!…….. THREE!!!!!!!! THAT’S IT!
(The crowd erupts with cheers as Tyler Parker and Ares Vendetta remain downed on the ground)
Kawajai: Tyler Parker – even if unintentionally – has finally put a stop to this Unsanctioned Street Fight with that high-risk Moonsault off of that ambulance! The two EMTs and every car that stopped has no idea what they’ve walked into as the crowd tries to help Tyler up! Both EMTs immediately check on Ares Vendetta once again…. What a… Well, I don’t know if I can really even call it a match… It was a FIGHT… It was a fight, plain and simple.
WWEFan: I-I’ve seen a lot of crazy things in this company, Kawa, but THAT… THAT might be at the top for me. Those two men just brutalized one another unlike anyone I’ve seen before! They weren’t fighting for a victory! They were fighting to the death! Tyler Parker nearly got hit by a damn car! Unbelievable!
Kawajai: And whatever the case, these fans here tonight loved every second of it! One of the EMTs now trying to check on Tyler as he’s congratulated by the adoring New York City fans in attendance for this hellacious – absolutely HELLACIOUS – contest we’ve just witnessed here tonight!
WWEFan: I think one thing is for certain: After tonight, neither of these two men are gonna be the same men they were when they came into it. That was an almost LITERAL do or die situation for these two men. Two men that didn’t have to prove anything, really. There’s no argument that they’re both two of the best athletes in this company, but tonight, all for bragging rights, they took it to an entirely new level!
Kawajai: Absolutely, and I think Tyler knows what kind of price he paid here tonight to capture the victory as he’s led to the ambulance while Ares Vendetta is checked on by the other EMT… TYLER’S DRIVEN INTO THE SIDE OF THE AMBULANCE?!! ARES VENDETTA SLAMS TYLER PARKER’S SKULL INTO THE SIDE OF THE AMBULANCE ONCE MORE! HOW THE HELL IS HE STILL CONSCIOUS, LET ALONE MOVING?! HE GRABS TYLER AND SENDS HIM CRASHING SPINEFIRST INTO A NEARBY PARKED CAR!! HE’S LITERALLY STRANGLING HIM!! HE GRABS A HOLD OF TYLER AND DRIVES THE BACK OF HIS HEAD INTO THE BACK WINDOW OF THAT PARKED CAR UNTIL IT CRACKS!! SOMEBODY STOP HIM! SOME OF THE CROWD IS TRYING TO GET INVOLVED HERE, BUT ARES NAILS ONE OF THEM WITH A HARD SHOT AS THE OTHERS BACK AWAY! ARES HAS LOST IT! HE’S COMPLETELY LOST IT AS HE GRABS TYLER…
(Ares sends Tyler Parker head-first through driver’s seat window of the parked car)
WWEFan: JESUS CHRIST!!!
Kawajai: HE JUST PUT–HE PUT TYLER PARKER THROUGH THAT CAR WINDOW!! TYLER PARKER IS A BLOODY MESS AS HE SLUMPS UP AGAINST THE SIDE OF THE CAR!! HE’S OUT! HE’S OUT COLD AND LOSING BLOOD AS ARES UNLOCKS THE CAR DOOR! COME ON! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, ARES–STOP!! ARES OPENS UP THE CAR DOOR AND SLAMS IT INTO TYLER PARKER!! HE SLAMS IT INTO HIM AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN!! JESUS CHRIST!! HE’S GONNA KILL HIM!!
Ares: YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE COME HERE, TYLER!!! YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE COME HERE!!
WWEFan: Tyler… Tyler Parker… I don’t even know what to say.
(Ares Vendetta slowly backs away, exiting through the crowd and into the alley way with a blank expression on his face as the crowd parts for him before they check on an unmoving Tyler Parker… The EMTs rush to the aid of Tyler as blood continues to pour all down his face and chest while he remains motionless against the car)
Kawajai: Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. I’m done.
(Kawajai can be heard taking off his headset, followed by WWEFan as Police arrive on the scene while Tyler Parker is rushed into the ambulance)
