( EAW Intro plays. )
( “Welcome To The Party” by Diplo starts up along with Battleground’s intro video starts playing. The camera shows a pan view of the sold out Prudential Centre in Newark, New Jersey before it cuts to Clark Ruggerio and Ben Knight. )
Ruggerio: Ladies and gents, welcome back to Monday Night Battleground, our 7th episode since the return. We’re live from the Prudential Centre in Newark and THE ARENA HAS SOLD OUT! And for a good reason as we have exciting matches waiting for us!
Knight: You’re right there Clark, because we have a massive main event between the Stoned Raiders and The Big Damn Heroes, in the first round of the tag team grand prix!
Ruggerio: But before we get into that, let’s get warmed up with some tag team action.
[KURTIS RAY AND DENIS CERCEL WIN, DENIS PINS MAX POWER. TBP SOON]

( The camera fades backstage as Chase Vantigon was able to get an interview with Xavier Arnold. )
Vantigon: Mr. Xavier, thanks for your time. I wanted to make a few question about your current position here on Battleground.
Xavier: Oh, really? I thought we were going to talk about politics. Don’t be dumb, Chase!
Vantigon: Excuse me, sir. So, you’re the one with the most points here on Battleground, but the last couple of week’s you haven’t been able to get a win yet. Why that?
Xavier: Why that? Well, I have plenty of points and I could get away within two weeks. I thought I’d just have some fun and prove my dominance, but things didn’t go as planned.
Vantigon: Is that why you’ve challenged Harlow Reichert, mr. Arnold?
Xavier: Yes, that too. I mean, I want to test myself and have some fun, why can’t I do it? Also, a win against Harlow could see me through, so you might also be prepared for that.
Vantigon: Who will you challenge next, Mr. Xavier?
Xavier: I’m thinking Theron Nikolas, the Answers World Champion next…
( Suddenly a hand touches Xavier on his shoulder, which is revealed to be Ian Ross’ hand. )
Ross: Take it easy Xavier :whoa: ! If you want to go up quickly to the main roster, don’t be making challenge week after week. Just face who I book you against and you’ll have a much bigger chance. In fact, I want to talk with you about this so, Chase, excuse us.
( Ross and Xavier go away as Chase is seen standing backstage. )
( Camera fades back to the ring. )
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Maria Del Rey: The following contest is a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH SET FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“Headfirst for Halos” by My Chemical Romance begins to play through the speakers as Jake Smith bursts through the curtains, arms in the air).
Marie Del Rey: Introducing first, from Venice California, JAAAAAAAKE SSSMMIIIIIIIIIIIIITH!
(As he walks down the ramp, he takes a moment to make sure his hair is in good condition. He slides underneath the bottom rop and into the ring, jumping to the top rope of one of the turnbuckle corners to show himself off to some fans).
Ben Knight: We saw Jake Smith make very short work of his opponent, Miles Thatcher, last week on Fight Grid.
Clark Ruggiero: Smith has certainly showed us he knows how to get the job done, no matter what’s necessary!
Ben: I wonder if he’ll be able to continue his dominant streak when he has two opponents to worry about?
Maria: And his first opponent, from Salem, Massachusetts, “The Reaper,” BOWIIIIIIIIIEEEEEE GRRRRAAAAAAAAAAYYYYY!
(“Blood // Water” by grandson fills the arena as Bowie Gray slowly walks out to the ring, seemingly disturbed by the fans’ cheers for him as he throws his hands over his ears and grimaces, shaking his head “no”).
Ben: This may just be his debut match here on Battleground, but from what I understand about Bowie Gray, I know I definitely don’t want to share a ring with him at any point in the near future.
Clark: Seconded, Ben. Bowie Gray is a man who is deeply disturbed, there’s so much pent up rage inside of this young man, I’m not sure there’s anything that could stop him.
Bent: Unless of course you consider—
(The intro to “The Night” by Disturbed cuts off the chorus of “Blood // Water” as Jason Ryan begins to make his way to the ring, towering over the camera as he stomps down the ramp).
Maria: And their opponent, from Billings, Montana, he is “Wrestling’s Redemption,” JAAAAAASOONNNNN RRRRRYYYYYAAAAAANNN!
Ben: Consider a man like Jason Ryan! I’m not so sure that I have the words to tell you just how much of a monster this man truly is!
Clark: Another new signee making his debut tonight on Battleground and I gotta tell ya, I’m a little nervous to see just what Jason Ryan has in store. You wouldn’t believe that a man of his size would be able to pull of what he claims he can do in that ring.
Ben: As you should be, Clark, this is a man driven by one thing, and that’s the potential to cause chaos.
Clark: I think I know who my pick is to win here tonight, just as long as he doesn’t take down EAW with his opponents.
(Jason Ryan finally makes his way to ringside. He reaches up to grab the top rope and pulls himself up onto the apron. He steps over the top rope and stares down his opponents, who have each chosen a corner of the ring to cower in).
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Ben: And we’re off! Almost instinctively, Bowie Gray and Jake Smith are working together to try and bring Jason Ryan to his feet. A kick from Bowie, a forearm from Jake! But Jason Ryan is not moving!
Clark: Jason is actually beginning to smile! He’s laughing now, Ben, as he grabs Jake and Bowie by the heads and he—HE SMASHES THEIR SKULLS TOGETHER!
Ben: I heard the impact from here! Jake on spaghetti legs now as he crashes to the ground! But Bowie—hell, Bowie doesn’t even look phased!
Clark: Jason focuses his attention onto Bowie Gray who seems to be taunting Jason Ryan now! It’s a real life David and Goliath here tonight. Jason with no time for the taunts and he grabs Bowie by the neck—CHOKESLAM FROM JASON RYAN! Bowie Gray has been flattened out on the mat! Did you see the height on that chokeslam!?
Ben: Jason pulls Bowie up by the arm, it looks like he might be setting up for for a suplex—NO, BOWIE PULLS AWAY! And he begins to unleash some swift kicks to the midsection of Jason Ryan, but I don’t think that’s enough to take this monster down—DROPKICK TO THE SKULL!
Clark: Jason falls to his knees–and up comes Jake Smith who is by no means counted out of this one, Ben! He runs onto the ropes, gaining some momentum—SWINGBLADE TO THE NECK OF JASON RYAN! AND THE SIX-FOOT-SEVEN MONSTER FALLS FLAT ON THE MAT! He turns around and—
Ben: BOWIE GRAY CATCHES HIM IN THE SUNSET FLIP VARIATION—THERE IT IS! PARALYZED!
Clark: HE COVERS! And down goes the ref for the count!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Blood // Water” by grandson fills the arena as the referee raises Bowie’s hand in victory).
Maria: Here is your winner, by pinfall, BOOOWWWIIIEEE GRRAAAAAAAAYYYY!
(Bowie pulls away from the referee, as if he were afraid of him. He begins to smack the side of his head, as if he were trying to force something out of his ear).
Ben: Quite the performance by these three men here tonight!
Clark: I am certainly impressed, Ben! You just never know what to expect here on Battleground!
( Commercial break. )
( The camera shows a pan view of the arena as it cuts back to the ring. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Del Rey: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
( ‘Story of Hope’ by Forever starts playing as Akio Tanaka makes a weird entrance and the fans boo him on his way to the ring. )
Del Rey: Introducing first, from Ishikawa, Japan, weighing in at 175 pounds, AKIOOOOO TANAKAAAAAA!
Ruggerio: A young japanese man trying to make a name for himself here in EAW, but the challenge he has ahead is tough. Kaiva Santos is no joke I’m telling you!
( ‘Sleep Apnea’ by Chevelle blasts through the speakers as Kaiva Santos makes her entrance and the crowd gives a mixed reaction. )
Del Rey: Introducing his opponent, from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 128 pounds, THE DEVIL’S DAUGHTEEEEER, KAIVAAAAAA SANTOOOOOOOOS!
Knight: The Devil’s Daughter is here, looking focused against a high-flyer like Akio Tanaka. Can her MMA style beat Akio’s high flying style? We’re about to find out!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Ruggerio: The match has started as Akio goes for the punches, but Kaiva blocks AND UNLEASHES A FURY OF FISTS ALL OVER AKIO. KAIVA TAKES AKIO DOWN AND COMPLETELY DESTROYS AKIO WITH THOSE HARD-HITTING PUNCHES, BUT KAIVA ISN’T DONE YET AS SHE GET’S AKIO BACK ON HER FEET… BIG BOOT! AKIO IS DONE!
Knight: BUT KAIVA ISN’T GOING FOR THE COVER! OH NO, SHE WANTS TO MAKE AKIO FEEL THE PAIN! WHAT A RUTHLESS GIRL THIS IS! THE DIAMOND DEVIL IS LOCKED IN! AKIO IS IN A WORLD OF PAIN RIGHT NOW, HOW MUCH CAN HE HOLD? THIS MATCH HAS JUST BEGUN, IT CAN’T END JUST LIKE THIS?
Ruggerio: AKIO IS TRYING TO BREAK THE HOLD BUT IT’S WORTHLESS, KAIVA PUTS ON MORE PRESSURE… KAIVA WANTS TO GET AKIO’S SHOUDERS OUT OF THEIR POSITION… AKIO IS ABOUT TO TAP… AKIO TAPS OUT! HE TAPS OUT!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( ‘Sleep Apnea’ by Chevelle starts playing one again as the referee raises Kaiva’s hand up in victory. )
Del Rey: Here is your winner by submission, KAIVAAAA SANTOOOOOOS!
Knight: Well, that was hella quick. Kaiva wasted no time and went in on Akio, who had no other option but to quit! (how ironical)
Ruggerio: Kaiva just proved dominance tonight, I hope this is a good sign for what’s about to come next for her. This girl has potential.
( Commercial Break: Wicked Games. Watch LIVE the return of Captain Charisma against the one and only, Prince of Phenomenal. )
(The scene opens to a coffee shop in Newark where we see Johnny Walker sitting at a table with Harlow Reichert. Johnny is dumping a ton of sugar in his otherwise black coffee while Harlow watches him amusedly.)
Harlow: You know, that’ll kill ya, mate?
(Deciding he’s poured enough, Johnny puts the sugar canister down and stirs his coffee. After taking a taste to test he seems satisfied and gives Harlow a grin.)
Johnny: C’mon, ‘Low, if eight years in Afghanistan didn’t kill me a little sugar won’t.
(He takes a drink of his coffee as Harlow rolls her eyes.)
Harlow: No, a little wont…regardless, you wanted to talk about the Grand Prix, I guess? Pretty exciting innit? I wonder who we’re gonna draw in the first round?
(Putting down his cup, Johnny pulls out a notebook wrapped with a rubber band and opens it while smiling apologetically to Harlow.)
Johnny: I made some notes, if you wanna take a look? (He hands Harlow the notebook who flips through it briefly, then lays it aside. Johnny frowns.) You don’t like the notes?
(Harlow shakes her head and takes a drink of her coffee before answering.)
Harlow: It’s nothing like that, John, I just think you’re overdoing it. Over thinking things is never the answer, it just leads to freezing when it comes down to time to act. We’ve wrestled each other, and we can put in some time at the performance center to get our timing down. It’s not that deep, Johnny., I promise.
(After taking a moment to mull over Harlow’s words Johnny shrugs and puts the notebook away.)
Johnny: Fair enough. You ready to answer the Kaiser’s challenge, ‘Low? He seems to really have come after you this week.
(Harlow shakes her head at the mention of Xavier Arnold. She finishes off her coffee and tosses it into a nearby trash can.)
Harlow: Well, The Kaiser has an ego roughly the size of Germany, but I think I’ll do okay, yeah. Like I said, I’ve got him beat in every possible area. (She gives Johnny a playful punch on the shoulder) You just get ready for next week, Johnny Walker, let me worry about my match!
(Finishing his own coffee, Johnny holds up his hands defensively.)
Johnny: Alright, alright, you got me. Look, I wanna say thanks agreeing to team up, I‘m really looking forward to it!
(Harlow stands and starts walking toward the door.)
Harlow: No worries at all! I gotta go now though, I’m gonna meet with Thadd before Battleground, but for sure, Team Friendzone is gonna be banging, John!
(She walks out of the coffee shop while Johnny considers for a moment, then calls over to the waiter to order another coffee.)
( The camera fades back ringside. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Del Rey: The following match is scheduled for one fall!
( ‘All Star’ by Smash Mouth blasts through the speakers as the crowd cheer Harlow Reichert who makes her entrance. )
Del Rey: Introducing first, from Christchurch, New Zealand, weighing in at 155 pounds, HARLOOOOOW REICHEEEEEERT!
Ruggerio: Harlow Reichert has been making quite a few appearances here on Battleground, and she has always been victorious. Can Xavier Arnold break it here tonight?
( ‘Mein Hertz Brennt’ by Rammenstein starts playing as Xavier Arnold makes his entrance. )
Del Rey: Introducing her opponent, from Cologne, Germany, weighing in at 219 pounds, XAVIEEEEER ARNOOOOOOLD!
Knight: The Kaiser of Battleground ascends with a sole objective: make his way to the main roster. Will he be able to pull it off tonight? Let’s see.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Ruggerio: The match is underway as both Xavier and Harlow make circles around the ring, Harlow makes the first step trying to get control of Xavier’s arm, but Xavier is able to defend himself and rotates breaking the attempt. HARLOW WITH A BIG RIGHT HAND AND A BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX TO FOLLOW IT UP! XAVIER GETS BACK ON HIS FEET BUT HARLOW GOES FOR A QUICK ROLL-UP, BUT NO, XAVIER ROLLS THROUGH, BUT HARLOW WITH A SUPERKICK SMACKING THE TEETH OUT OF XAVIER!
Knight: Great reflexes by Harlow and this could mean trouble for Xavier. Harlow irish whips Xavier to the corner and GOES FOR THAT EUROPEAN UPPERCUT, BUT SHE MISSES AS XAVIER GETS OUT OF THE WAY AND REICHERT SMASHES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE CORNER! XAVIER FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A CLOTHESLINE AND A GERMAN SUPLEX RIGHT AFTER! XAVIER REGAINS CONTROL OF THE SITUATION! HARLOW STRUGGLES TO GET ON HER KNEES AND XAVIER CHARGES TO THE ROPES… RHINE REBEL! NO, HARLOW DUCKS AND CONNECTS WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX FOLLOWED BY A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!
Ruggerio: The match is going back and forth so far, as Harlow grabs Xavier and smashes him to the corner. She locks Xavier’s legs behind the bottom rope and his hands behind the middle rope AND NOW HARLOW UNLEASHING A FURY OF UPPERCUTS ON XAVIER!
Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN!
Knight: Xavier drops motionless on the floor! Xav is out and Harlow has an opening! This could end the match right here! HARLOW CLIMBS THE TOP ROPE, LOOKING FOR THE COCKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS! HARLOW FLIES INTO THE AIR… BUT SHE LANDS CHEST FIRST ON THE RING AS XAVIER ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY ON THE LAST SECOND! XAVIER HAS HARLOW IN PERFECT POSITION! XAVIER GRABS THE LEFT HAND OF HARLOW AND ROLLS HER THE OPPOSITE WAY… MONAAA LISAAAA! THE COVER!
Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREEEE-
Ruggerio: KICKOUT FROM HARLOW! HARLOW KICKS OUT! UNBELIEVABLE! XAVIER ALMOST GOT THE WIN, HE COULD’VE MOVED TO THE MAIN ROSTER! XAV CAN’T BELIEVE IT, HE’S IN SHOOK! HARLOW SLOWLY MAKES HER TO HER FEET AS XAVIER IS PATIENTLY WAITING. HARLOW IS ON HER FEET AND HARLOW CHARGES FOR THE CLOTHESLINE! NO, HARLOW DUCKS AS XAVIER GOES TO THE ROPES AND BACK TO HARLOW WHO CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK!
Knight: HARLOW NOW IS LOOKING FOR THE LEAPING TRIANGLE CHOKE! CHOKE A BITCH TO DEATH! IT’S LOCKED IN! XAVIER HAS NO ESCAPE! THIS COULD BE OVER! XAVIER IS STRETCHING OUT TRYING TO REACH TO THE ROPES, SLOWLY HE’S GETTING THERE BUT HARLOW IS LOCKING THE SUBMISSION TIGHTER! THIS COULD BE IT… XAV IS ALSO ALMOST THERE… FOOT ON THE ROPE, HARLOW IS FORCED TO BREAK THE SUBMISSION BY THE REFEREE, BUT THE DAMAGE HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE! XAVIER IS BARELY BEING ABLE TO BREATHE!
Ruggerio: Xavier uses the ropes to get on his feet, but he better don’t! Harlow is waiting there like a lioness waiting for her prey! XAVIER TURNS AROUND, HARLOW GRABS HIM BY THE LEG! FATE’S END! IT’S OVER! THIS IS IT!
Ref: ONE!!! TWO!!! THREEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( ‘All Star’ by Smash Mouth plays once again as Harlow gets her hand up in victory. )
Del Rey: Here is your winner by pinfall, HARLOOOOOW REICHEEEEEERT!
Knight: Impressive performance yet again by Harlow Reichert who ended Xavier Arnold’s hopes to get on the main roster, at least this week.
Ruggerio: However this shouldn’t be a demotivation for Xavier as he surely made clear he’s no joke!
( Short commercial break. )
(The camera cuts to Maria Del Rey in the ring.)
Maria Del Rey: The following contest is a Tag Team Grand Prix Round 1 Match and it is scheduled for one fall!!!
(“Mama Said Knock You Out” by LL Cool J (Undefeated Mix) blasts across the speakers!!!)
Maria Del Rey: Introducing first they are the tag team of Jack Haze and Noah Reigner… they are the STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONED RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIDERS!!!
(Jack Haze and Noah Reigner come out to the ring chiefing on a blunt as they blow smoke into the face of the referee causing him to back away in fear.)
Knight: Oh hell yeah! It’s the Stoned Raiders! They are here to take over the tag team division by storm! I don’t think that the referee wants that smoke and their opponents don’t neither!
Ruggiero: The Stoned Raiders claim that their opponents have no chance in hell in this match! We will see if they can win right here in the first round of this Grand Prix Tournament! The greatest tag team action in EAW right here on Battleground!!!

Ruggiero: Same. They look to be fucking unstoppable!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Knight: We are underway as it looks like Remi is starting things off against Jack Haze. Both competitors staring each other down with intent to kill. Remi is shown licking her lips in anticipation of what is about to go down. She is hungry for blood! They begin to pace around the ring as they eventually lock up… No! Remi ducked under the lock up! Remi playing them mindgames with Jack Haze but he seems unaffected! Jack Haze is chill af!
