[ SCREEN BAR – EARLIER TODAY ]
( The scene opens up outside of World 1 Theatre. A black, stretch limousine is seen pulled up towards the back entrance and the driver can be seen opening the door. Once the driver steps to the side, brand new Dynasty Elitist, Maxwell, is seen stepping out. He is sharply dressed and adjusts the cuffs of his suit, while the newly crowned PURE Champion, Limmy Monaghan steps onto the pavement. Limmy looks just as swanky as his new stablemate, and obviously, the last person out of the limo is none other than Jake Smith. As usual, Jake has a shit eating grin on his face, with the arrogance absolutely oozing from every single pore tonight. The three members of Insurrection exchange a few words with one another before they start making their way towards the door. It’s only when Jake stops before he reaches for the door handle that the three of them notice what’s been graffitied on the door. )
Maxwell: Hashtag Boycott K-O-E. The fuck?
Limmy Monaghan: Something I noticed the other day while scrolling through social media is that there were some ramblings about how corrupt the King of Elite tournament is and how it’s one of the things about EAW that’s better left in the past.
( Jake can’t help but roll his eyes. )
Jake Smith: The only thing corrupt about the tournament is when Insurrection makes a clean sweep. Whichever one of us ends up in the finals is obviously going to win the crown and cement themselves as the next World Heavyweight Champion. I can see why people would be angry about that. Who really has a chance when they’re stuck facing any of us?
( Limmy and Maxwell aren’t about to argue with that. They know coming into 2021 they have put themselves in prime position to really cement themselves as major impact players on Dynasty, and all three seem motivated and up for the challenge. They scoff at the ominous message that has been put on the door and head into the building. Limmy enters last and lets the door bang shut behind him. The camera zooms in on what’s been spray painted and it seems like the hashtag that seemingly got started on social media earlier in the week has a deeper meaning. )
( #BoycottKOE )
( Whatever could it truly mean? )
(EAW intro plays.)
(Instead of the usual recap for Dynasty, ‘Morning Glory’ by Oasis blasts through the arena to a confused reaction from the virtual crowd in the World 1 Theatre. It didn’t take long for boos to be poured down from the rafters as Jake Smith would be seen making his way out to the stage. He has his ring attire on along with a definitely unbranded ‘INSURRECTION’ tank top as he looks around before making his way down the ramp. He has a big smirk on his face as he would egotistically spread his arms out as he continued down the ramp before going around the ring. He would jump onto the apron before entering into the ring as he would circle around, strutting with a cocky mannerism before finally finding himself at the center of the ring, after taking a microphone from the timekeeper’s area as ‘Morning Glory would fade out. Jake would stand at the center of the ring and let the boos ring before beginning to speak)
Jake Smith: Why wouldn’t I be the first face you see on Elite Answers Wrestling television in 2021? Jacob Smith, The Industry Ruler, lots of names, lots of names…. Take a good look, right here, this face that you see? This voice that you hear, are things that you’re going to see and hear a lot more going forward in the new year. Because I think I’ve proven myself very well haven’t I? Defeating part of the old guard I’ve proved one thing that I’ve been preaching for the longest time about myself, and that’s the fact if it’s anyone’s time around here, it’s mine. People always question that, because apparently I am not fit to grab that brass ring. While I beg to differ, what better than to show them than by saying fuck the brass ring and going straight for a diamond studded crown? And you know what I see? King of Elite, winning that entire thing is exactly what I need, and I have no problem with doing just that.
(The crowd would show their displeasure even louder as Jake would begin to walk back and forth in the ring with a smirk continuing to beam on his face as he did so. It was evident this man knew how to piss off the virtual crowd tonight and he was doing just that)
Jake Smith: I’m sure I have to talk about the elephant in the room though and that’s the new stable that I have in my possession, and that’s in the form of Insurrection. What more could you want out of a collective unit? We are the most dominant force in Elite Answers Wrestling currently and we’ve only been around for literal days, and not just that! We’re the future too! And that’s something that you’re going to have to come to grips with. Don’t take it from me, hell if you need more explanation, please let me get my fellow group members out here right now. Ladies and gentlemen first off, please welcome, Maxwell.
(‘Slide’ by Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean, Migos played through the arena as the crowd continued their wave of boos as Maxwell made his way out to the ring. Of course with his ring attire and a definitely unbranded ‘INSURRECTION’ shirt over it he made his way down the ramp and into the ring. He would look at Jake with a smile as Jake kept his smirk as he held out the mic as ‘Slide faded out and Maxwell began to speak as it did)
Maxwell: I always like to think about how good this feels. To finally be on the “winning side” of things and carving my own path for myself. People wonder why I did it, why did the man who had everything have to do such a thing? Well it’s because Showdown did me an injustice. They mistreated me, and I was sick of it. They expected me to be their puppet, Ryan Wilson expected me to smile and go along with it. Well I didn’t, I decided to make a decision for myself and that was to side with people that would get me places, and that was going to be nowhere near Showdown. Why am I here to begin with? Well it’s easy, you see that money I got from the Extreme Enigma elimination match? I used it to buy out my Showdown contract, and become a free agent. I’ve got money to spare, no problem whatsoever. I was held back by Showdown, but on Dynasty now? I’ll spread my wings, with the right people, and the right environment to be around to do so.
(Jake would pat Maxwell in the back as he walked forward, now with his own mic in his hand he would continue to speak after him)
Jake Smith: And of course we can’t forget one more addition to our team. I don’t think he needs an introduction, but I feel the need to. Ladies and gentlemen your newly coronated PURE Champion, Limmy Monaghan.
(‘Apple Seed’ by Hiroyuki Sawano would play as the boos continued to grow into more jeers. Limmy Monaghan would make his way out with a cocky expression as he spread his arms out for all the crowd to admire the PURE Championship around his waist and the definitely unbranded ‘INSURRECTION’ shirt he had to match his other teammates. He would make his way down the ramp and point to each one of them as his expression would match him as he casually rolled into the ring. He pulled them into a big hug as he went over and took a mic from ringside as well as he stood at the center of the ring with the two of them by his side as “Apple Seed’ would fade out and Limmy would begin to speak as well)
Limmy Monaghan: I don’t think there’s much words needed to be said about this so I’ll make it brief so we can keep the ball rolling. I think its safe to say literally everyone saw this little win that I got at Road To Redemption coming very clearly. Me being the PURE Champion??? Saw it a literal mile away really. This was a prophecy that was frankly inevitable, it was only a matter of when it was finally going to come around and finally become true. And now that it has? We move on to the next step, and that’s takeover. You expected me to do it alone? No no, this is why I have them along with me, by my side, Insurrection. I think me, Jake, Maxwell, can see eye to eye and that’s the fact that there needs to be some sort of change. And nobody, but us, has the right assets to do so. So this title I have? One of many for us, we have a lot of plans for EAW. Brothers in arms, we stand united.
Jake Smith: :whew: That’s what I like to talk about! We didn’t do this for the fuck of it. We didn’t do this because we thought it was “cool” or “hip” or whatever. We did this because we are the change that EAW needs. We did what was necessary to get to this point and now look! We couldn’t be more stronger than ever, feels damn good. And who’s to stop us from doing this??? No one! Because whoever decides to do so? Well, they’re simply just standing in the way of history-
(Jake gets abruptly cut off by the sound of ‘Akatsuki’ by Babymetal which plays up to the cheers of the crowd as all three members of Insurrection turn to the stage. None other than MITSUBACHI, followed by Komatsu Ogawa would make their way out to the stage with their own mics in hand as they do so. MITSU would have a stern look on his face as Komatsu had the same as both of them found themselves entering into the ring as they’d look at the 3-to-2 situation that they had before them. But it didn’t really matter as from there ‘Akatsuki’ would fade out and MITSU would speak before Komatsu could get the chance to do so)
MITSUBACHI: I could be happy for you three. For what you did in Sweden I could be happy standing in front of you guys. And I wish I could find the power to do such things without lying straight to your face, but there’s been this one thing on my mind since then. It was how you three went about it, playing a role till the time was right, and you expect me to be content with that? When I was nowhere near the winning result, hell I was left out of the damn celebration. The least you could’ve done was give me an invite, but now look. I felt like an outsider looking in. That’s why I had to come here, because I have to do something about it.
Komatsu Ogawa: Yeah! Do you think the great MITSUBACHI is scared of you three?! Just like his ancestors his never say die spirit leads him into battle and guides him towards victory. I could be one-on-one.
Komatsu Ogawa: Two-on-one.
Komatsu Ogawa: Three-on-one.
MITSUBACHI: Wait aren’t you here with me-
Komatsu Ogawa: Four-on-one-
MITSUBACHI: OK! Do you guys really expect yourselves to be the future? Congrats! You kicked off Dynasty in 2021, New year and all of that. I could give you congrats for saying the same cliche thing as anyone else would with this future shit. You guys ticked off the wrong person and unfortunately, that was me. So the stunt that you three pulled at the Christmas show? I’m angered of course, I’m also out here to say something about it.
(Jake would think for a moment as he would step forward and look at MITSUBACHI as he raised an eyebrow)
Jake Smith: Well then what the hell are you going to do about it? It’s the two of you versus the three of us and one of you two is a useless chickenshit who we could wipe the floor with any given day of the week. I don’t expect much out of you two anyways, unlike us, 2021 is destined to be your failure if your first action is to step out here and confront us.
(Komatsu would look in anger as he would step forward before MITSU held him back. He would whisper in his ear as Komatsu would smirk as both of them looked towards the three of them. The scene was tense but the crowd began to cheer loudly as ‘La Guayaba’ by Riccie Oriach blasted through the speakers. SEBAS would make his way out to the stage as he would have a smile on his face as he would spread his arms out for the crowd to see as the crowd continued to show their admiration for him. He would look over to the ring as his face would turn cold as he made his way down the ramp. Insurrection would look in confusion, focusing primarily on Limmy who was absolutely irate. SEBAS would enter into the ring as ‘La Guayaba’ faded out and he looked at Insurrection. He would completely put Jake and Maxwell out of focus as Limmy stepped forward and both of them looked to one another as SEBAS made the first move)
SEBAS: I’ve been waiting for this moment for a while now Limmy. To finally get the chance after long months of rehabilitation, to speak to you face to face. Don’t think I haven’t forgotten what you’ve done to me. To put me on the shelf with coincidentally another throwaway partner. Those scars will last, but one thing that will also do the same is the fire knowing that you have a Championship around your waist. And with that, it makes you more of a target for me than ever. I can assure you Limmy that what me and you had before House of Glass 2020? Is far from done. If I can promise you one thing that’s the fact that I’m going to make sure that you get a taste of your medicine. But first?
(SEBAS would then focus on all three members of Insurrection)
SEBAS: I’m going to make sure to knock all three of you out of the King of Elite tournament if you three don’t manage to fuck up and do it for me beforehand.
(Limmy would shake his head as he looked ar him still in frustration as he spoke)
Limmy Monaghan: Oh SEBAS… still the same old same old that I remember. Always so much guts, but no brains really. You’re doing nothing but giving yourself a death wish doing this, just as you did before. Now tell me, what’s going to make our encounter now anymore different than the last time?
SEBAS: Because I’m a man dead set on revenge. Stronger than ever after being put on the shelf. Being forced away from wrestling so long has continued to fuel me. Which means more trouble for you than anything else.
Limmy Monaghan: Oh really, oh fucking really-
Jake Smith: Woah woah Limmy, let’s slow things down a little bit now… the fun isn’t done just yet. You think with this little extra member that you have that this is going to suddenly level things out? Lucky for you three, there is another member of Insurrection that I haven’t announced just yet… ladies and gentlemen please welcome…
(The crowd would buzz as silence would be heard for the longest time. Before ‘The Phoenix’ by Fall Out Boy hit the speakers to the sheer confusion of the crowd. It was hard to tell how they were going to react as Donovan Duke would come out to the stage. He had an ‘INSURRECTION’ shirt on as well as from there the crowd read the signs and would begin to boo. Donovan would make his way out to the ring with a smile as MITSU, Komatsu, and SEBAS would be left in a bit of shock as Donovan would circle around before jumping up onto the apron and enter into the ring. Jake would toss him a spare mic as Donovan would catch it with ease as ‘The Phoenix faded out. Donovan would turn his attention over to the three of them as he would speak)
Donovan Duke: Guess you didn’t expect that huh? Consider that my little ace in the hole for all of you here in 2021, a nice little fresh sheet of paper to turn to in my book. I’m sure the crowd in attendance is wondering why I would do such a thing? Well, I think the signs are very telling. For too long now people have overlooked me. I always considered it some sort of “underdog” mentality but here was the kicker. No matter what I seemed to do, if I won, if I lost, I was always treated as the punching bag. Despite that I shunned that all away and tested my luck. I continued to do so constantly and constantly and the only thing I met was disappointment. That’s why I felt the need to do it one more time. Then *click*, jackpot. It was only a matter of time before this little country boy here was going to make some moves, and Insurrection is what I need for the better of my career. When the offer was put out there to join I didn’t hesitate to do so because I knew if I wanted to do something about all of this, then I was going to make the right decision. And here I am! And it seems like there’s a little bit of trouble in the way isn’t there?
(All three oppositions would still be a bit dumbfounded but it wouldn’t stop them from continuing to speak)
MITSUBACHI: I see we’re going to play that game huh? Well I insist, keep it going. Bring the whole damn Dynasty roster out here all you want, the more numbers you add the more it just shows how much of a pussy you guys are.
Maxwell: I think you got it wrong. I think you mean to say more power in numbers right? Like the rich get richer, we grow in numbers. It doesn’t mean we’re scared, no, it just means trouble for whoever makes that mistake of testing us, and look what we have here.
SEBAS: Ok then. Let’s put this new member here to the test.
(SEBAS would take his entrance gear off as he would make his way to his corner)
SEBAS: We have a match don’t we? I feel the need to knock this team down a peg, what better? Then to continue my King of Elite ambitions and knock the rest of them down as well with a domino effect, oh what a joy.
(SEBAS would drop his mic down to the ground as Donovan would look at his three partners as he turned and began to get ready as well as a Ref quickly slid into the ring as any outside Elitists would have already slid out as he quickly signaled for the bell to be rung)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: We are underway as the final member of Insurrection Donovan Duke takes on SEBAS. I know that the entire EAW universe is still reeling from that revelation. However, the show must go on as we deal with these emotions we also have a King of the Elite tournament to hold. I am sure there are many out there who want to see SEBAS crush this traitor but we will see if that actually happens. This match has been unleashed upon us here tonight the first day of the New Year. Let us see who will reign triumphant. SEBAS with a stoic demeanor as he stares down Donovan across the ring with ice cold eyes. SEBAS is clearly not happy with the reveal that Donovan is a member of INSURRECTION and plans to do something about it real quick.
Flannery McCoy: The tension is suddenly broken as SEBAS charges in with teeth clenched. Donovan Duke meets him in the middle of the ring as they begin to trade high velocity punches battering each other right in the skull with those fists. SEBAS with a hard forearm. Donovan with a hard forearm. Back and forth as it looks like Donovan is taking control… No! SEBAS ducked a forearm… and caught Donovan in the head with a Roundhouse Kick! Donovan drops to the mat and rolls out of the ring to safety. But here comes SEBAS!!! Tope con Hilo over the top rope! No! Donovan moved out of the way!! But SEBAS leaped up onto the middle rope to stop himself from leaping just in time! Donovan was tricked he thought he had SEBAS outsmarted!
Jake Mercer: An enraged Donovan Duke slams the timekeepers chair repeatedly into the metal turnbuckle denting the chair before slamming it on the ground. SEBAS with a mocking grin in the ring as he reclines up on the top ropes in the turnbuckle waiting for Donovan to return to the ring and fight him. Donovan saying all kinds of nasty things about SEBAS now that we can’t repeat on television in 2021. We probably could have in 2020 but this is a new time. A new era. Donovan realizes he is going to have to get back in the ring as he grabs the chair and makes his way up to the apron. He enters the ring with the chair! But the referee snatches it away immediately! SEBAS leaps up from his perch on the top rope and hits a Flying Crossbody to Donovan! The cover!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-
Stew-O: Kickout by Donovan Duke! Donovan back up as SEBAS takes him down with an Enzuigiri! Donovan again rolls out of the ring to safety as the referee prevents an annoyed SEBAS from leaving the ring to go after his elusive prey. SEBAS picks up the chair that the referee had taken from Duke as he sets it up in the ring and takes a seat waiting for Donovan to return. Donovan is not pleased with the cockiness being shown by SEBAS.
Donovan Duke: SCREW YOU SEBAS! THIS IS MY NIGHT! I AM PART OF INSURRECTION! EVERYONE SHOULD BE LOOKING AT ME! TALKING ABOUT ME! I’M GOING TO MAKE SURE NOBODY EVER TALKS ABOUT YOU EVER AGAIN!
Flannery McCoy: An enraged Donovan Duke storms the ring and charges SEBAS who is still sitting on the chair! Running Boot to the face! But SEBAS rolls over the back of the chair and Donovan’s boot collides with steel! Donovan’s leg caught up inside the chair as it snaps shut hard on his ankle! SEBAS off the ropes with a Springboard Moonsault onto the leg of Donovan which is trapped in the chair! The referee now intervening pushing SEBAS away to remove the chair. The referee drops the chair outside the ring. SEBAS grabs Donovan by the hair and tosses him over the top rope to the outside. Donovan holding his leg in pain but the referee dealing with the chair does not notice as SEBAS sneaks his way out of the ring! Donovan pulling himself up on the ring steps but SEBAS off the apron with a Flying Guillotine Leg Drop landing right on Donovan’s head on the steps! SEBAS throws Donovan back into the ring and goes for the cover! This has gotta be it!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: Donovan Duke with the kickout! I thought that was it! Donovan was looking for this to be his night but SEBAS has been on fire this whole match! Can the latest member of Insurrection make a comeback or will he disappoint his new stablemates here tonight?!?!? Find out as Dynasty rolls on!
(The camera cuts to a commercial promoting the Best of 2020 in EAW.)
Stew-O: We are back live on Dynasty and during the break Donovan Duke took control of this match. Let us see how that happened.
(A replay is shown of SEBAS about to hit his Schrodinger Paradox finishing move only to get hit with a Low Blow from Donovan Duke out of view from the referee.)
Flannery McCoy: Absolutely unsportsmanlike conduct from Donovan Duke here tonight! That is not what 2021 is about! This was supposed to be a better year! Stop ruining it Donovan! Stop it right now!
Jake Mercer: WAIT WHAT THE HELL!?!?!? A SMALL PACKAGE OUT OF NOWHERE FROM SEBAS!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Donovan Duke kicks out at the last minute! He is back up… SCHRODINGER PARADOX CONNECTS FROM SEBAS! THAT HAS GOT TO BE IT! SEBAS HAS THIS MATCH IN THE BAG!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-
Flannery McCoy: YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! IT’S LIMMY MONAGHAN! HE JUST PULLED THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING! THAT SON OF A BITCH LIMMY! SEBAS IS PISSED!!!
Jake Mercer: Hahaha! Look SEBAS! This is the benefits of having friends! You have no friends SEBAS so you lose because Donovan has the power of friendship!
Stew-O: Donovan Duke may have the power of “friendship” but SEBAS has the power of flight! Tope con Hilo over the top rope taking out Limmy Monoghan on the outside! SEBAS back in the ring now as he climbs up to the top rope! SEBAS looking to end things! SINGULARITY OFF THE TOP!!!
Flannery McCoy: NO! LIMMY PULLED THE ROPES BEFORE SEBAS COULD JUMP! SEBAS WENT FOR THE SHOOTING STAR ELBOW DROP BUT LANDED ON THE BACK OF HIS NECK FAILING TO COMPLETE THE ROTATION!!! HOLY SHIT!
Jake Mercer: DONOVAN DUKE SHOWING GREAT TENACITY AND DETERMINATION AS HE CRAWLS TO THE COVER ON SEBAS!!! YES! YOU HAVE EARNED THIS ALL ON YOUR OWN DONOVAN! MAKE THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! THRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: Here is your winner… DONOVANNNNNNNNNNNNN DUUUUUUUUUUUKEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Morning Glory” by Oasis hits as the referee goes to raise Donovan Duke’s hands only to be shoved aside by Limmy Monaghan who raises his hand instead.)
Jake Mercer: Absolutely incredible performance from Donovan Duke here this week. A dominant performance. SEBAS was unable to put up any offense the entire match and was just simply outclasses in every way by Donovan who defeated him single handedly.
Flannery McCoy: Now just hold up a minute there Jake. There is absolutely nothing true about what you just said. SEBAS gave it all he’s got and honestly I think he would have been the one to have had a dominant victory here tonight if that son of a bitch Limmy didn’t get involved.
Jake Mercer: Yeah well what can you do. Sucks for him I guess.
SEBAS: ¡Te mataré Limmy! ¡Arruinaré tu año nuevo antes de que pueda comenzar!!!
Stew-O: Damn SEBAS is pissed off as the Insurrection members take their leave. Someone needs to calm this man down he has murder in his eyes. Tropical Breeze SEBAS looking like a volcano that is about to erupt and I wouldn’t want to be Donovan. He has made many enemies here tonight and he can certainly add SEBAS to that list! Limmy better watch his back too!
Flannery McCoy: You hate to see it. But Donovan Duke has advanced in the King of the Elite Tournament. Can he make it all the way to the end? With the help from his butt buddies he may be a force to be reckoned with! Can anyone stop Insurrection from taking over EAW in 2021?!?!?
(The camera cuts to a commercial featuring EAW wrestlers giving their New Years’ resolutions. We here at EAW hope you murder all your opps this year with great efficiency.)
(Dynasty’s broadcast opens up to the inside of the World 1 Theatre where our commentary team is admiring the ostentatious set-up that has been arranged inside of the ring.)
Stew-O: Welcome back to Friday night Dynasty, everybody! As you can see, in front of us, we have a celebratory display in the ring tonight! Based on the color scheme, I don’t think it’ll be hard to guess who this setup is for. :mjgrin:
Flannery McCoy: Word has it, Stew, that Eris LeCava, former Vixen’s Champion and a multitime Female Elitist of the Year candidate, has plans of hosting a party for the Universal Women’s Champ tonight!
Jake Mercer: Wait, what? Who? SERENA?! What has she done lately?!
Flannery McCoy: She’s the winner of five (5) EAW awards, including Female Elitist of the Year and the Universal Women’s Champion of the year–the title she is fresh off a successful defense with after Road to Redemption, hello? Plus, her birthday’s right around the corner.
Stew-O: It’s important to note though, Flan, that if it weren’t for Eris’ interference, Serena might not have that title in her possession right now.
Flannery McCoy: Say what you want about her defense, Stew, she still pulled it off and is still able to call herself EAW’s Universal Women’s Champion! Being able to withstand and survive all sorts of situations is exactly what gives Serena her charm in the first place.
Jake Mercer: Is there cake, at least? I hope there’s cake.
Flannery McCoy: Oh? What kind of cake do you like best, Jake?
Jake Mercer: I ain’t got no type. :creep:
(Jake Mercer would be pleased to find out that there is indeed cake. Inside of the ring, on top of a luxurious velvet blue carpet rests a large buffet table where there is a large cake at the center with Serena’s face printed on top, accented with bright blue frosting. The ring ropes are lined with blue and white streamers, complemented by massive blue, white, and gold balloons tied at each turnbuckle. On the table, there are ice buckets filled with chilled Crip-A-Cola of each flavor, baskets filled with a variety of noise makers, horns, party hats, and glasses, and a selection of gourmet charcuterie boards. Scattered around the ring are gift boxes of various sizes, all wrapped in blue paper with large white and gold bows.)
(“Call Me” by Blondie starts up and is followed by an overwhelming series of cheers from the virtual audience inside of the World 1 Theatre. Eris LeCava rushes out onto the stage, very much taken aback by the positive reception she receives as she stands at the top of the stage, gripping her heaving chest as she takes a look around the virtual arena, smiling as she runs her tongue along her bottom lip.)
Flannery McCoy: And for the very first time in her career, the Anti-Vixen has arrived inside of the World 1 Theatre! To an incredibly positive reception from the virtual audience, no less, who I know is excited to see Eris get into the thick of it here on Dynasty, especially after her performance at last weekend’s Swedish-Saudi Christmas special!
Stew-O: Eris has been out of in-ring action for four and a half years which have felt like an eternity, according to the way she tells it. But you’d have had no idea based on the kind of performance we just saw from her. EAW’s Women’s Division is in for a wake-up call if Eris plans on coming at the division as hard as I think she is!
Jake Mercer: Y’all make sure Seroquel over there keeps her distance from me, thank you.
Stew-O: Seroquel?! :skip: What makes you think Eris is on psychiatric medication, Jake?
Jake Mercer: ikyfl.
(As the trio provide their commentary, Eris has energetically skipped down the ramp to the edge of the ring. She takes a right turn, wrapping her arm around the turnbuckle post before pulling herself up onto the apron, smiling wildly into the camera beneath her. She enters the ring through the bottom rope, then reaches for a microphone before repositioning herself in front of the buffet table as “Call Me” comes to a halt.)
Eris LeCava: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE EAW UNIVERSE, I’M SO HAPPY TO BE HERE!!!!
(The virtual audience responds approvingly.)
Eris LeCava: God, what a rush! Road to Redemption was the first time I was in front of an EAW audience in SUUUCH a long time! And I can’t even tell you just how excited I was to be able to help my beautiful, chocolate queen secure a hard-fought victory that night! I finally feel like my life has MEANING again! Like I have a true purpose in life: to stand alongside Serena Bennett and take over Elite Answers Wrestling, together, as the TRUE power couple we are meant to be! The Jaded Hearts have NOTHING on our love! If DEDEDE and Amber Keys thought their live sex segment was something, just wait until Serena and I leak our sex tape! 🤤 We’re gonna make Chris Elite look like an amateur once you see how far I can take Serena’s strap up the ass, it’s WAY bigger than Malcolm’s, I swear!
Stew-O: Oh, good heavens…
Jake Mercer: :feedme: Need dat.
Flannery McCoy: Which one? 🤨
Eris LeCava: Tonight, we’ve come to celebrate the most magnificent specimen in professional wrestling–no, in the whole entire world–NO! THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED, SEXY, GIFTED WOMEN IN THE ENTIRE *UNIVERSE*! And she’s the love of my life, SERENA BENNETT! The EAW Universal Women’s Champion! Soon to be longest reigning at one-hundred and thirty-nine days as champion, already! 😍 And that’s why she’s the WOMEN’S CHAMPION OF THE YEAR! The 2020 FEMALE ELITIST OF THE YEAR after making the COMEBACK OF THE YEAR! And in just a few days, on January 3rd, IT’LL BE SERENA’S 27th BIRTHDAY!!! 😍😍😍 So, because I want to be a good girlfriend to the most amazing woman in the world, I’m throwing her a birthday party! And all of you are invited! C’mon! We have goodies for everyone! I just hope there’s enough, I know Serena’s really, really popular. 😅 But that’s okay! As long as we kick off her birthday weekend with a BANG and let her know just how special she is, especially to me! I…I just hope Serena likes the outfit I put together for her party tonight. 🥺 What do you guys think?!?!
(Eris pauses to give the audience a chance to admire her outfit as she twirls: a black, leather corset accentuating her cleavage with low-rise, blue denim jeans and a chunky black heel. The virtual gives signs of approval, with a few whistles being picked up on the broadcast.)
Eris LeCava: Hopefully, it makes her dripping, sweet cunt swell up as much as mine does when I think about my baby! 😍😍😍 And the AHHH-MAAAAZING match she had at Road to Redemption with no help from that loathsome fire crotch goblin! Don’t even get me STARTED on the outfit she wore to the EAW Awards ceremony… 🤤 GAWD, I’m so excited to see her, I can hardly contain it anymore! WHY WAIT ANY LONGER, SERENA?! You’re the reason we’re brought here together to celebrate anyways, baby! This is AALLL for you, it’s yours, my love! It would mean the WORLD to me for you to come out here looking as sexy as you always do and celebrate here with me tonight as we bask in your glory! C’mon, Serena! No need to be shy or modest! I’m right here with you, until the end, babe! Let’s have some fun!!!!
(Eris, still full of energy, lowers her mic to allow “Surfin’ [ft. Pharrel Williams]” by Kid Cudi to play throughout the World 1 Theatre PA system. Eris is beside herself, laughing excitedly as the virtual audience roars in approval for Serena who slowly walks out onto the stage with the Universal Women’s Title resting over her shoulder. She pauses atop the stage wearing a cropped, navy blue puffer jacket over a white tube top paired with high-waisted black leggings and a pair of Timberland boots. Hesitantly, she walks down to the ring, a cautious expression on her face.)
Stew-O: Well, I’m certainly surprised Serena decided to even join Eris out here tonight. The last time she and Eris had a face-to-face conversation, Serena told Eris very plainly to “fuck all the way off.” What use would Serena confronting Eris be?
Jake Mercer: Serena better be careful sending out mixed signals that way–you know, back when she worked as an air traffic control specialists in her youth, it was those same mixed signals that damn near caused two planes to crash in mid-air on Serena’s watch, the results would have been disastrous–
Flannery McCoy: Serena might be just as confused as you are about this, Stew. I can only imagine she wants to properly address what’s happened at Road to Redemption, and hopefully nip Eris’ hyperfixation in the bud.
(Eris holds open the middle rope for Serena as she climbs the steel steps. Serena unenthusiastically accepts the gesture, entering the ring as Eris bounces around happily. She hands an unamused Serena her own microphone before rushing to grab another. As “Surfin’” dies down, Serena takes a look around the ring as Eris welcomes Serena to her birthday party.)
Eris LeCava: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SERENA!
(She blows into a party horn, pointing the fringe blowout straight into the face of Serena, who jumps back at the sound. She reaches into her cleavage to pull out a handful of confetti, showering an annoyed Serena in glitter and tiny bits of paper.)
Eris LeCava: I’M SO HAPPY YOU CAME!!!!!! OHMIFUCKINGGAWD, LOOK, BABY! LOOK WHAT I GOT YOU!!!!! Look at all your presents, do you like them?!?! I can’t WAIT for you to open them–you should start with that little one, it’ll look so cute on you right before I ravish you in it. 🤗 And look, look, LOOK, Serena! One whole cake! AND YOUR BEAUTIFUL FACE IS ON IT! SEE?!
(Serena simply raises her eyebrows with a pursed lip as she nods her head slowly.)
Eris LeCava: It’s all for you, babygirl, even though I already know that MY cake is your favorite one to eat. 😘 There’s even all these shark-coochie boards with vegan cheeses and cured meats and all these gluten-free crackers with names I don’t even know how to pronounce–even though in an interview last year, you said you hate crackers, I don’t really know why, I think they’re delicious. 😕 But it’s okay! I can eat them, if you don’t want them! I would LIT-RALLY peel off each and every sesame seed on that whole STACK of crackers if you needed me to, Serena. Anything to make you happy, baby! ANYTHING! Just say the word!
Serena Bennett: :snoop:
Eris LeCava: WELL?!?! What do you think, Serena?!?!?!?!?! Are you happy??? Oh, no, it’s not enough, is it?! Do you want more? Well, good news, there’s going to be more, queen, just you wait! Today is only DAY ONE of your birthday weekend extravaganza! But I still want everything to be perfect, baby, so please, tell me, what can I do to fix this?! Did I use the wrong shade of blue??? Are you trying to watch your sugar intake, do you not like cake??? I swore chocolate was your favorite flavor! Or do you really hate crackers THAT much?!?!?! >.<
(Serena lets out a heavy sigh, brushing a few bits of confetti off her shoulder before raising the microphone to her lips.)
Serena Bennett: Look, Eris, I ain’t gon’ hold you–nobody’s ever done something like this for me before, I don’t even know what to make of it. Nor do I have any idea how to proceed in a scenario like this one, I don’t have much experience with people with your, um, sort of condition. :mjgrin:
Eris LeCava: That’s because NOBODY loves you as much as I do, Serena! Isn’t it obvious?!?! The love I have for you is completely unmatched and impossibly strong. I can take care of you, baby. What you and SOSA Henderson had? That wasn’t love! It was NOTHING! Neither was Cam Newton, he’s a freaking loser, they didn’t care about you at ALL, not the way I do, baby! Don’t you know that? You and I are going to be together, FOREVER! You and I were always meant to be, from the very start! It was written in the stars, Serena!
Serena Bennett: Maybe it didn’t register back when I told you at Road to Redemption how it was I really feel about this entire scenario, Eris. So I’ma take my time and make sure it sinks in–
Eris LeCava: I do love it when you take your time with me, Serena, you’re such a tease! 🤤
Serena Bennett: :dahell: See, it’s that shit, right there, that shoulda been enough for me to clock you upside the head, as if you can sustain another serious head injury like the one ya delusional ass is already suffering from–
Eris LeCava: Oh, you’re such a joker! C’mon, Serena, why are you so shy?!?! Don’t be embarrassed about what happens in our bedroom! Our friends in the EAW Universe don’t mind, right?!
(The virtual audience cheers.)
Eris LeCava: See?! They’re supportive of us! No judgement, at all! And I can’t help it, Serena, I love talking about you! I’m so happy I get to call you mine, I just want to shout it from the mountaintops and I don’t care who hears me! Don’t you feel the same way?! Aren’t you proud to have me in your life? Don’t you…love me? 🥺
Serena Bennett: Look, sis, I don’t wanna push you over the edge or nothing, put you on suicide watch or whatever, but…no. Hell no. I don’t fucking love you, like, at all. I don’t even like girls like that, fam, come the fuck on. This is horrible for my rep, even more detrimental to my career, ‘cause at this point, you cuttin’ into airtime that should be all mine. Listen to me, closely, tho: there. Is. NOTHING. Between us. There never will be. You asked what would make me happy? Then leave me alone and stay out my goddamn business going forward. If it meant that much to you to step in and interfere at Road to Redemption, then cool, the most I can do is say “thank you” and move on with the rest of my life, and you better do the same.
Eris LeCava: …okay, that’s okay, fine…nothing to worry about…I can fix that…
Serena Bennett: Ain’t nothing for you to fix, Eris. Deadass, this shit is over the top and weird as hell. You a grown damn woman, get some professional fucking help, I know I’m fine and all, but I don’t need this shit, you doin’ the most. This better be the last fuckin’ time I have to tell you to leave me the FUCK alone, fam. Don’t do no shit like this again. Clear?
(Eris suddenly begins to hyperventilate. Serena takes a step back as caution.)
Eris LeCava: No…NO! YOU’RE LYING! You DO love me! I just need to help you see it and realize it, that’s all! I can fix this, Serena, I can MAKE you love me! I know I can! It’s that hard exterior you’ve built to protect your heart after all you’ve been through, but it’s okay now, baby! You’re safe with me! Let me help you break those walls down so I can fill your heart with all the love you deserve and MORE! I LOVE YOU, SERENA! PLEASE! I’M SORRY FOR WHATEVER I DID TO UPSET YOU! FORGIVE ME AND LET’S GO BACK TO NORMAL!
(Eris drops her microphone and grabs Serena by the hands, pleading with her off-mic. Serena pulls her hands away, but then Eris grabs her by the shoulders, attempting to pull her in for a hug. Serena, resisting, forcefully pushes Eris off towards the table behind her.)
Stew-O: Shoot! Eris loses her balance, and–OH NO! SHE’S FALLEN INTO THE TABLE! RIGHT ON TOP OF THE BIRTHDAY CAKE! MAKING A COMPLETE MESS OF THE RING!
Flannery McCoy: ERIS IS NOW SITTING ON SERENA’S FACE!
Gavin Kirkland: :adpeek:
(The table collapses as Eris lands, Crip-A-Cola spilling from some broken bottles dampening the carpet and ruining the gourmet crackers. Eris remains on the floor, directly on top of the cake, frosting now plastered all over her hands and jeans. She looks down at her palms as tears begin to well up in her eyes. Serena, not knowing what else to do, shakes her head and quickly exits the ring, prompting Eris to begin crying hysterically.)
(Eris, on her knees, crawls over to the edge of the ropes facing the ramp, pleading with Serena off-mic as “Surfin’” begins to play.)
Eris LeCava: (off-mic) Serena…baby…please…come back…
Serena Bennett: (off-mic) FUCK OFF!
Jake Mercer: This has gotta be one of the strangest birthday parties I’ve ever been to. It only comes second to the Nun and Nunchucks party Ogawa hosted last year when Pope Francis visited Japan…
Flannery McCoy: Whatever Eris hoped to do by throwing Serena this extravagant party, this definitely couldn’t have been the outcome she expected. Do we think Serena’s message might have finally stuck this time, Stew?
Stew-O: Hardly. If I know one thing about Eris LeCava, it’s that she’s determined–and she’s a lot like Serena in that regard. Honestly, these two might have more in common than they think. But time will soon tell what comes of Eris’ obsession, and whether or not it will be as beneficial to Serena’s career as she swears it will be.
(The camera shows Serena as she walks backwards up the ramp, slowly, with a disgusted expression on her face. The feed cuts back to Eris in the ring who is no longer crying, but laughing. The camera shows as she pulls out a small Serena Bennett action figure from her cleavage, planting smooches on the face of the doll as tears continue to stream down her face. As the audience responds wildly to Eris gripping her doll tightly as she licks frosting off her hands, Dynasty’s broadcast fades to black.)
(A commercial for Hot Cakes starring Ronan Malosi is shown. How “aUtOcOrRecT” can turn against you is remarkable, but oh how profitable it is)
(The camera cuts to Stephie Love in the ring.)
Stephie Love: The following contest is a Round One Match in the 2021 King of Elite Tournament!!!
(‘Apple Seed’ – Hiroyuki Sawano hits to boos from the crowd.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first from Beverly Hills, California weighing in at 207 pounds he “The Adam Lucas Assassinator” LIMMYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY MONAGHAN!!!!
(Limmy Monaghan makes his way out to the ring walking like a king looking down upon his lowly subjects in the audience as he ignores their jeers and demands the referee stay a respectable distance away from him.)
Flannery McCoy: Well we already saw Limmy Monaghan out here earlier when he fucked over SEBAS something fierce. I have no love for an opp and Limmy is a member of Insurrection. Allied with people like Jake Smith and Maxwell who is on Dynasty despite what Lucas Johnson might think.
Jake Mercer: SEBAS brought that all on himself! He should have shown more respect to “The SEBAS Slicer” himself!
Stew-O: I am not sure why Stephie chose to use that insulting nickname towards Adam Lucas but that may be an EAW mystery we will never find out.
(“Akatsuki” by Babymetal hits as MITSUBACHI emerges from the curtains to a standing ovation of cheers.)
Crowd: MITSU! MITSU! MITSU!
Stephie Love: And his opponent from Sōka, Saitama, Japan weighing in at 187 pounds he is “The Reborn” MITSUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUBACHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(MITSUBACHI makes his way to the ring looking ready to whip some ass.)
Flannery McCoy: BACHIMANIA IS RUNNING WILD!
Jake Mercer: No. No it’s not Flannery. Insurrectionmania is running wild!
Stew-O: We need to outlaw cringe in 2021 but then I would have to do this job all by myself. Speaking of all by yourself, MITSUBACHI is going to have to watch out for Insurrection members interfering in this match if the earlier match with SEBAS is anything to go by.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Flannery McCoy: We are underway as MITSUBACHI immediately takes out Limmy Monoghan with a Superkick out of nowhere! Down goes Limmy! Down goes Limmy! Limmy rolls to the outside of the ring holding his jaw in pain. Limmy did not see that one coming and Bachi gains an immediate psychological advantage in this match. Limmy walks around outside the ring plotting his next course of action before rolling back in the ring. Bachi charges in… but Limmy plunges through the ropes and takes out the ankle of Bachi causing him to fall neck first on the middle ropes. Limmy tackles onto Bachi’s back choking him out and tosses him into the corner. Stomp stomp stomp away at Bachi! Limmy grabs Bachi by the head and tosses him over the top to the outside of the ring!
Jake Mercer: Limmy Monaghan now following MITSUBACHI to the outside as he grabs the tights of Bachi and throws him back first into the barricade separating the ring from where the fans would be at ringside. He then slams Bachi’s head into the apron.
Stew-O: THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING HOLY SHIT!
Flannery McCoy: Limmy Monaghan tosses MITSUBACHI into the ring and goes for the cover!
Flannery McCoy: Quick kickout at one by MITSUBACHI as Limmy Monaghan responds by standing up and placing his boot on the forehead of his fallen opponent. A condescending Limmy now rubbing the sole of his boot into the face of Bachi. He grabs Bachi’s arm pulling him up and then yanks on his shoulder trying to dislocate it. He then yanks the arm up and falls backwards with a quick Snap Suplex yanking Bachi by the arm and shoulder in a rotating motion over his shoulder. Bachi grabs the ropes in an attempt to slide under them but Limmy stomps away at the gut of Bachi preventing his escape. Limmy hears boos from the crowd as he looks annoyed but ignores them.
Limmy Monaghan: You all are not worthy of me!
Stew-O: Limmy Monaghan now choking out MITSUBACHI with his boot on his neck! The referee is so appalled!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! GET THE HELL OFF HIM!
Jake Mercer: Limmy Monaghan reluctantly breaks the hold but then grabs the legs of MITSUBACHI and falls backwards with a Slingshot right into the bottom rope nearly decapitating his opponent in the ring! Limmy with the cover!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! TWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-
Flannery McCoy: MITSUBACHI with the kickout! Limmy Monaghan stalks Bachi into the corner and slaps the shit out of him. But Bachi fights back with a slap of his own! But Limmy with a hard knee to the gut and then punches him directly in the forehead knocking Bachi back down in the corner. But Bachi with a quick Leg Sweep pulls Limmy face first into the turnbuckle padding! Bachi up as he yanks the arm of Limmy and then Irish Whips him across the ring to the corner. But a reversal from Limmy and both men are sent ragdolling into the opposite corner. They collide head first and with the turnbuckle before falling back into the ring. Bachi lands with his arm on top of Limmy and grabs him from behind yanking him back up to his feet still holding him from behind… GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS!!!
Stew-O: But Limmy Monaghan flips out of the German Suplex and grabs MITSUBACHI! BLOOD STAINED CROWN!!! LIMMY ENDING THINGS!!!
Jake Mercer: NO! MITSUBACHI COUNTERED IT! YAKUZA KICK CONNECTS!!! Limmy Monaghan down as Bachi falls into the cover.
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! THR-
Flannery McCoy: Limmy Monaghan somehow kicks out! MITSUBACHI thought that was it but he is gonna have to do some more damage to get the job done here tonight! Bachi stomps angrily on the hands of Limmy who crawls away desperately. Limmy crawls under the bottom rope but Bachi grabs his leg and pulls him back in… But LIMMY SIWHT SAOSHFOIASFHSA
Stew-O: SMALL PACKAGE!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: MITSUBACHI gets the shoulder up! Right back up and at it! Limmy Monaghan is waiting tho! BLOOD STAINED CROWN!!!!
Flannery McCoy: THIS TIME HE GETS IT!!! THIS ONE IS OVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!! LIMMY WITH THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-
Flannery McCoy: WAIT THE REFEREE WAS JUST PULLED OUT OF THE RING! OH MY GOD! I AM EXPERIENCING DEJA VU!!!
Stew-O: IT’S SEBAS! SEBAS PULLING THE REFEREE OUT OF THE RING TO COST LIMMY THE MATCH! THIS IS REVENGE!!!
SEBAS: ¡ESTA ES MI VENGANZA HIJO DE PUTA! If I can’t be in this tournament then neither can you!
Jake Mercer: That sore loser SEBAS is out here to ruin Limmy’s evening! You have to be kidding me! Disqualify him! Quickly!
Flannery McCoy: The referee didn’t disqualify anyone in the last match! Why would they do it now?
Stew-O: Limmy is enraged and he is calling SEBAS all kinds of names from the ring. But he doesn’t notice that MITSUBACHI is behind him! Turn around Limmy!
Jake Mercer: Limmy Monaghan turns around… TYRANT REVENGE CONNECTS! MITSU WITH THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: Here is your winner… MITSUUUUUUUUUUUUUUBACHIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!
(‘Akatsuki’ by Babymetal hits as the crowd erupts into cheers and the referee raises up MITSUBACHI’s arm in victory.)
Stew-O: MITSUBACHI did it! He advances to the next round of the King of Elite tournament! One step closer to the crown!
Jake Mercer: He cheated Stew! How is this allowed to stand? Also where the hell were the other members of Insurrection? Someone needs to keep an eye on this man SEBAS at all times. He can’t be trusted!
Flannery McCoy: Limmy got what he fucking deserved Jake! He shouldn’t have screwed over SEBAS in his match earlier and maybe he would be advancing in the King of Elite tournament right now! This is what I call justice!!!
(The camera cuts to a commercial featuring the many EAW wrestlers who quit the company after receiving their stimulus check in they account. When asked for comment one of the former EAW employees stated “Damn $600 got me set up for life ese. I ain’t need to take no more concussions in the ring n shit. Fuck the fans I’m one rich motherfucker now.”.)
(“ME” by Taylor Swift ft. Brendon Urie blasts through the arena speakers as Veena Adams comes out to the ring holding an EAW branded microphone in her hand)
Jake Mercer: Well, Veena is coming out to tell us the state of the red brand going into 2021.
Stew-O: I mean, what can she really tell us? I think everyone knows that Dynasty has always been the best brand and I doubt it’s going to change this year.
(The Dynasty co-general manager hops into the ring, before putting the microphone close to her mouth)
Veena Adams: Out of such a year that most people hated the fuck out of, there’s a big positive to get out of it. Wanna know what? Dynasty. Because Dynasty in 2020 has been all hits, no misses. And that’s the exact same energy I want Dynasty to have in 2021, and I don’t doubt that it will. I mean, seriously, the competition is non-existent! All Showdown has is incompetent people with identity crisis and Voltage has psychopathic murderers. Is that the royalty that should be given to wrestling in EAW? No. And that’s why I’m here, because I want my brand to have GOOD wrestling! I mean… I’ll let people kill each other from time to time to fulfill my sadistic needs but other than that…? Nah, Dynasty is the best. Look at the amazing line-up of champions we have and had. I mean, the legendary Lethal Consequences to carry the World Heavyweight Title, the amazing Limmy Monaghan leading the way for future stars as PURE Champion, and one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Har- nevermind. Anyway, talking of future stars, have you guys seen all of the new Dynasty signees? We really stole them all from the inferior brands. Eris LeCava coming back, The Fallen Angel who for sure will be amazing, Maxwell who just got traded and finally found a career path, Mike Murphy, Mary S. Atlas, Johnny Airhart, all stars who you will be on the lookout for in the next few months to come. Very exciting thing co-
(“Gimme More” by Britney Spears starts playing as Riley McCray comes out with a disgusted look on her face while walking towards the ring)
Flannery McCoy: Well, now this is a name I’ve been excited to hear from.
Stew-O: Bold words from Veena, stroking in her ego in the name of the Dynasty brand, and it seems like the returning Riley has a few problems with what she said.
Jake Mercer: You know Riley McCray has been pretty impressive back in the REVOLT! days, I really wonder how much she will achieve now that she’s back in EAW.
(Riley McCray gets in the ring and takes a look at Veena Adams before raising a microphone she got from ringside to her mouth)
Riley McCray: Hm, I feel like you’re forgetting something, Veena. Wait, not even something… someone.
Veena Adams: :comeagain:
Riley McCray: Come on! It’s not that difficult.
Veena Adams: I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Riley McCray: You know… you didn’t mention me.
Veena Adams: Oh.. Well, I don’t even know who you are.
Riley McCray: I’m sure you will after tonight, and you’ll give me proper respect.
Veena Adams: Yeah, yeah, kid. Whatever.
(Veena Adams leaves the ring as Riley stands in the middle of the ring looking proud of herself)
Flannery McCoy: Riley McCray is surely someone who will be reckoned with this year.
Jake Mercer: Yeah, interrupting the co-GM like that must take some nerves, but it doesn’t seem like she cares.
Stew-O: She for sure has a lot to prove, and will get the chance to up next.

(‘Demi-Gods’ fades out as ‘War’ by Grandson blasts throughout the World 1 Theatre as Jake Smith smugly walks out from behind Guerilla with a smirk on his face as the crowd Boos upon his arrival)
Stephie Love: AND HIS OPPONENT, WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND TEN POUNDS! HAILING FROM ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY…. HE IS….JAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKEEEEEEEEE SMMMMMMMIIIIIIITTTTHHHHHHH!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: Jake Smith is coming off of a huge victory over Hall of Famer, Vic Vendetta to close out his 2020 campaign but I think that was just the tip of the iceberg for him…he looks more motivated than I’ve seen him be for some time and if that motivation carries over tonight, we could very well see him progress into the next round of King of Extreme!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: Quite the match we have here tonight as, Jake Smith and The Fallen Angel circle one another…both man looking for an opening– or better yet, both men looking for a chink in the armor of there opponent– AND I BELIEVE JAKE SMITH FOUND HIS OPPONENTS FIRST AS HE FEINTS A DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN CAUSING THE FALLEN ANGEL TO GO ON THE DEFENSIVE— JUST AS JAKE SMITH CONNECTS WITH A SOCCER KICK TO THE JAW OF THE FALLEN ANGEL!
Flanner McCoy: A lot of people don’t acknowledge just how good Jake Smith actually is..
Jake Mercer: :adpeek: Well…
Flannery McCoy: :francis: .. Jake Smith is actually a really great ring strategist, fully able and capable of outsmarting and defeating guys twice, even three times his size– and it’s simply because he’s always five steps ahead!
Stew-O: While that may be true in most cases– tonight Jake Smith has his work cut out for him as the hungry upstart The Fallen Angel is back up on his feet and delivers a THUNDEROUS clothesline that basically knocks all the air out of Jake Smiths lungs!
Jake Mercer: Jake Smith only took his eyes off the guy for a split second?!?! How is that even possible?
Flannery McCoy: The Fallen Angel walks over and picks a slightly stunned and confused Jake Smith back up onto his feet before taking a few steps back and charging back at his opponent—- STEP UP HIGH KNEE!!! KNEE MEETS JAW AND THIS TIME IT’S JAKE SMITH WHO’S ON THE DEFENSIVE AND THE FALLEN ANGEL FOLLOWS THAT STAGGERING KNEE WITH A LARIAT CLOTHESLINE!!
Stew- O: AND THE FALLEN ANGEL IMMEDIATELY GOES FOR THE COVER!
Jake Mercer: THE GOAT GET HIS SHOULDER UP BEFORE THE REFEREE EVEN HAS THE CHANCE TO COUNT TO TWO. :whew: This Rookie’s going to have to do a lot more than just deliver some stiff shots to knock off the great, Jake Smith.
Flannery McCoy: Well, Jake, it seems The Fallen Angel chooses to oblige as he once again picks Jake Smith back up to his feet and this time— HE SENDS WHIPS JAKE SMITH INTO THE ROPES AND UPON HIS RETURN HE TOSSES JAKE SMITH INTO THE AIR!!!!
Stew-O: FREE FALLING FLAP JAC— WAIT! WHAT-A….COUNTER!!!!!!!! JAKE SMITH AT THE VERY LAST SECOND MANAGES TO USE HIS LEGS TO GRASP THE HEAD AND NECK OF THE FALLEN ANGEL! JAKE SMITH IS USING ALL OF THAT MOMENTUM TO HIS ADVANTAGE AS HE TURNS THE FLAPJACK INTO A MODIFIED FRAKENSTEINER— FORCEFULLY DROPPING THE YOUNG PROSPECT ONTO HIS HEAD!!
Jake Mercer: THAT IS WHAT JAKE SMITH DOES BEST! JAKE SMITH IS MONEY! WHAT A COUNTER! WHAT A MOVE! WHAT A GUY!
Flannery and Stew-O: :wtf:..
Flannery McCoy: Jake Smith just secured himself an opening here in this match, and I don’t believe he’s going to waste it as he walks over to a dazed Fallen Angel and LAUGHS before superkick’ing the rookies face in!
Stew-O: There is no welcoming committee in EAW— just feet and fist, and if anyone abides by that it’s Jake Smith, just look at what he did to returning veteran and Hall of Famer, Vic Vendetta.
Jake Mercer: Hey, Vic got what he deserved!
Stew-O: :usure:… Anyway, all I’m saying is, EAW isn’t for the faint of heart and no one knows that more than Jake Smith! Jake Smith is welcoming The Fallen Angel to EAW in his own…twisted way, as he grabs the rookie by the hair… Jake Smith is just staring at The Fallen Angel… and…. WAIT…. GODSEND! GODSEND CONNECTS! THE ROLLING CUTTER—-JAKE SMITH JUST GOT ALL OF THAT AND THE FALLEN ANGEL MAY VERY WELL BE OUT! JAKE SMITH HOOKS THE LEG!
Flannery McCoy: NO— THE FALLEN ANGEL GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!!!! BUT THAT IS OF NO CONCERN TO JAKE SMITH WHO PICKS THE FALLEN ANGEL BACK UP TO HIS FEET— FALL FROM GRACE—- KNEECAP BRAINBUSTER CONNECTS!! JAKE SMITH PUTS HIS FOOT ON THE CHEST OF THE FALLEN ANGEL TO INITIATE THE COVER… the disrespect continues!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. JAAAAAAAAAKKKKKEEEEEEEEEEE SMIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHH!!!!
(‘ War ‘ by Grandson plays throughout the World 1 Theatre as fans on monitors are seen visibly upset and triggered by Jake Smith’s victory, as Jake Smith celebrates and laughs at all the angry faces shown before him )
Jake Mercer: If I’ve said it before, I’ll say it a million times, Jake Smith… IS MONEY! Congratulations on the win, goat.
Flannery McCoy: Congratulations on the win indeed, Jake Smith was motivated right from the start and a motivation Jake Smith– is a dangerous Jake Smith. The Fallen Angel did everything he could but the young rookie just didn’t have enough to topple Jake Smith here tonight, but hey it is EAW, and stranger things have happened. Take nothing away from The Fallen Angel here tonight.. The young prospect could be in store for a huge 2021.

(A commercial for the new IPhone starring Ryan Wilson where he shows off the features and now how he can be on 10 peoples social media pages at once)
(Transitioning directly from ringside, the broadcast opens up to the backstage area of the World 1 Arena, the viewing audience in attendance giving a slight pop for Dr. Angelo D’angelo as he walks briskly down the halls, one hand in his pocket while the other grips tightly onto a leather-bound notebook. He wears a white button down shirt underneath a green sweater vest, a pan-African colored tie tucked under his collar. In a few seconds, he stops at a door–the door to the shared co-General Manager space inhabited by Veena Adams and StarrStan [it is worth noting that on the signage on the door, Veena’s name has been printed in glittery pink script that is at least twice the size larger than StarrStan’s name in a simple sans-serif font]. Dr. Angelo knocks twice on the door before inviting himself in, the camera following close behind.)
(Once inside the room, the camera gives us a perfect viewing angle as Dr. Angelo positions himself in front of StarrStan and Veena, who seemed to be in the middle of a rushed conversation. Initially unaware of his presence, they slowly turn their heads to Dr. Angelo once he clears his throat.)
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: Good evening, Stanley. Good evening, Miss Adams. I know I may be a few minutes early, please excuse me, but I don’t see the point in delaying what I am hoping will be a productive conversation between the three of us, and perhaps one of the most profitable negotiations for Elite Answers Wrestling in the entirety of the company’s history.
Veena Adams: Uh, did you have an appointment or something? I don’t remember scheduling any charity events today…
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: Nonsense, Veena. You know good and well what this meeting is for, and I would prefer we don’t continue to waste more time skirting around the issue. It’s imperative that we address this head on before Dynasty is forced to suffer more than it already has since Road to Redemption. It’s a new year, afterall, and I would very much like it if we could come to a fair solution to the unfortunate loss Dynasty is now dealing with, and do what is necessary to bring the Visual Prophet back to EAW television and continue to provide your brand with this much needed favor, as it couldn’t be clearer now which of the three are going to take the biggest dip in ratings this weekend.
(Veena folds her arms over her chest, turning her head up to StarrStan who bites back a smile.)
StarrStan: Well, what do you expect us to do for you, Dr. Angelo?
Veena Adams: What the hell kind of doctor are you anyway? 🤨
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: I possess a Doctorate of Clinical Psychology specializing in social, industrial, and perceptual psychology with licenses to practice in twelve states and Puerto Rico. I also hold an MBA, and have been recognized by the National Black MBA Association for my contributions to the Black and African community through my business ventures and those I represent. My Masters in Juridical Science has also given me the expertise necessary to teach substantive law courses, like constitutional and statutory law interpretation, and have lead Black scholars in the field of bias recognition to help them better identify and understand influences that may affect their decision-making, particularly relating to the fact that Black men have been persecuted by the American Justice system for generations. :wow:
Veena Adams: So, not a REAL doctor. Got it! 😄
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: I beg your pardon?
StarrStan: Uh, I think what Veena meant to say was not the sort of doctor we were…expecting. Your credentials are certainly impressive, Dr. D’angelo, but I don’t think you came here to simply read off your CV, so–
Veena Adams: Why the hell aren’t you taking this up with Uncle Ryan, anyway?
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: You think I haven’t tried? The chairman and the board have both turned me away, insisting that the demands of my client are what they call “unreasonable.” I would have happily gone over both of your heads and utilized the authority of another to do what is necessary to bring the Visual Prophet back to Dynasty. But I’ve been left with no other choice than to attempt brokering with the two of you.
Veena Adams: …and you think admitting that is going to make us want to fucking help you?
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: You know damn well, Veena, that Dynasty NEEDS to help me, as you NEED the Visual Prophet to succeed. For Unkulunkulu’s sake, look at your main event this evening: a hideous, colonizing Englishman; an embarrassingly undermotivated Klansman; a man whose claim to Blackness is not at all credible; and a poor, young, unguided African man who has failed to unlock his true potential as the Black King he is. It’s a shame what he’s been subjected to since signing away his life on that EAW contract.
Veena Adams: Oh good fucking god, here we go.
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: That man Andre Walker is fighting for his life out there. For no good reason than to be accepted by and adored by his white masters. And he’s not the only one. Just take a look at Malcolm Jones, Serena Bennett, SOSA Henderson, Lisa Wren, James Ranger, Bashar Jackson, Bronson Daniels, the whole lot of them. Have you ever asked yourself why a people who have been put through endless mental, emotional, and spiritual anguish continue to beg for participation in the life of their oppressor? We have been raped. Killed. Sodomized. Abused. Beaten. Disgraced by white people for centuries. And we keep going back to the same people after four-hundred years BEGGING for a seat at the table. :ohlawd: It’s sick, I am convinced that the shackles of our ancestral history are going to be the downfall of Us as a people. The first law of existence is SELF-PRESERVATION. We need to stop running back into a burning house in hopes of finding anything worthwhile. That’s exactly why the Visual Prophet sought out my guidance in the first place, he KNEW he needed salvation. He KNEW that you white devils were taking advantage of him and his talents and treating him unjustly. He is worth far more than you people want to act like he is, and we still stand for it no longer!
(Veena rolls her eyes while StarrStan places a hand at the back of his head, neither co-GM certain of the best way to handle these kind of complaints.)
StarrStan: I hear what you’re saying, Dr. D’angelo. And I sympathize with…your people. I really do. But I hate to have to tell you that if the EAW Chairman himself insisted that what you and Viz were asking for was unreasonable…there’s no way for us to override his judgement. You are either going to have to come to a compromise, or–
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: Compromise? COMPROMISE?! (He scoffs at the mere idea.)
StarrStan: Yes, that, or Viz can find himself a new promotion to work for.
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: You’re going to certainly regret that you didn’t do more to secure Viz on the red brand, Stanley. If I have to entertain negotiations with Ryan Wilson or Captain Charisma, I certainly have no shame–
Veena Adams: Sure. Go for it. They love taking our leftovers anyway! 😄
(Just as the Beloved Brother points a finger at Veena in preparation to berate her, the door of the office is heard opening and closing. Dr. D’angelo lowers his hand as he, Veena, and StarrStan turn their attention to the door. The camera pans over to reveal Impact, the fuel for the chorus of boos raining down from the virtual audience, as he positions himself next to Dr. D’angelo, seemingly with business of his own to discuss with Dynasty’s co-GMs.)
Impact: Starr, Veena, I’m glad I could catch you both at the same time. If you guys are finished with… (He glances at D’angelo.) …that, then I think it’s time we discuss my next PURE title shot.
StarrStan: :skip: You say that like you’ve done something to earn one, Impact.
Impact: Imagine me entertaining the idea of “earning” anything, as if I haven’t long since received the legendary status that allows me to skip passed needing permission to do a damn thing.
Veena Adams: Let’s hear him out, Stan.
Impact: Thank you, Veena. As kind and understanding as ever.
Veena Adams: 🥰
Impact: For starters, I never really “lost” to Dray considering that the referee prevented me from defeating him at all at House of Glass by ending the match prematurely, I haven’t forgotten. Depending on who it is you ask, that match should have been mine, if not for the referee’s queasiness, I’d’ve won, and standing before you as the PURE Champion right now. And truth be told, considering that the title has fallen into the hands of a half-assed wrestler like Limmy Monaghan just goes to show how frustratingly depreciated that title has become. EAW’s midcard division is down horrendously and y’all know it.
StarrStan: That’s not really your call to make, Imp–
Impact: I can instantly elevate that PURE title to brand new heights, unlike anyone else in that division. Very few people in history, if any at all, have the capacity to effectively conduct themselves as an EAW champion the way I can, that much is indisputable. You know as well as I do that I have been purposely kept away from championship contention because my effectiveness within a championship environment is far higher than ninety-nine-point-nine percent of wrestlers in this company. But you’ve been doing that long enough, now, the title needs someone else, someone far more effective. So look no further.
Veena Adams: You bring up SO many good points, Karl! Limmy still needs a contender for King of Elite, no? I say, why not?!
(StarrStan swiftly turns his head to glare down at Veena, who flashes an innocent smile with Impact shoots her a wink. The Beloved Brother stands visibly offended at the transaction that’s just occurred in front of him, clearly not happy his meeting with Dynasty’s co-GMs has been interrupted.)
StarrStan: Nothing is set in stone yet, Impact. But I’ll hear you out and see what it is we can do for you.
Impact: Typical. If you’re content with allowing your midcard title to degrade that much further, I guess I can’t stop you.
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: Pardon me, but were the three of us not just in the middle of a conversation? A conversation you so rudely interrupted?
(Impact turns his head to Dr. D’angelo, arms now folded over his chest.)
Impact: Perhaps it wasn’t obvious, but you were dismissed the moment I entered the room. Whatever qualms you have with Veena and Star about their treatment of your rat-faced client who ran off hiding his hands despite having spent half a season throwing stones at me for “taking time away,” then you can take that up with them some other time.
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: Comparing a Black man to a rodent? :mjpls: I expect no less from a man who so candidly and liberally consumes Black media and culture as if it were the fruits of Eden, but I can assure you, you’ll find no forgiveness for the sins you’ve committed against Black people throughout your entire career with me the way you dared to tell my client you were the “least racist white man” in America. There is no such thing. If all whites aren’t Racist, then why hasn’t a single European ever waged war specifically against the white privilege you all enjoy at the expense of African people? Tell me, where is the movement by whites to redistribute the stolen wealth and unfair opportunities back to Black people? Nowhere to be found. It’s really only neanderthals like you that abuse your white privilege every chance you get, even went so far as to interrupt one of THE most important contract negotiations in EAW history, the contract that just so happens to belong to an African man.
Impact: Trust me, pal, the only contract negotiation that matters at all to EAW has been mine, as I’ve been running this game for twelve years. The contract belonging to one of the most overrated, mediocre, and overall, delusional jackasses in the industry–who has never defeated me once before, by the way–means nothing to either one of these suits, or is it really not obvious? My success and in turn, the favors that I’m doing for this brand are far more important than whether or not the Visual Prophet gives a damn to show up to work this week, or the next. You think if they wanted him that badly, they’d have bit the bullet and given him exactly what he’s been asking for by now. But he doesn’t have that luxury. He’ll never get this sort of luxury, either. It’s the kind of luxury and privilege I was not handed because of the color of my skin like you’re implying, but the security and affluence that I have BUILT and EARNED.
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: “Built” over the white supremacist foundations that were laid out for you before you were even born. “Earned” by embracing instead of fighting against the injustices African people are suffering for YOUR benefit. You should be ashamed of yourself, but I don’t think you people even have a conscience.
Impact: Wrong again. I earned those luxuries and I earned the contract I have through an unmatched longevity, wit, and physical ability the likes of which no one has ever attained at this juncture of their careers. Regardless of my complexion, but nice try, I’m not falling for the classic race-baiting argument that means nothing at all to me at the end of the day. If your client has the gall to demand ANYTHING in his contract, he better make sure he’s capable of putting in the world that individuals such as myself have been doing for years, and he’s nowhere close, the fuck makes him think he can ever get his hands on that cigar? Prided himself on never losing motivation, never needing a break, but his Road to Redemption performance showed us what that con artist was really all about and just how worn down he’s become. Couldn’t be me, though.
(Dr. D’angelo slowly nods his head, turning away from Impact to glance at Veena and Starr who both stare at their feet, completely uninterested in engaging in the conversation. A scoff emits from the Beloved Brothers lips before he speaks again.)
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: Your disinterested silence speaks volumes. It is perfectly clear that everyone in this damn industry is determined as they’ll ever be to continue to hold the Black man down, to stop us from reclaiming our wealth, to prevent us from profiting and succeeding! Not only are Dynasty’s general managers BIASED and playing FAVORITISM, they have no respect for myself or my client, nor do they understand just how harmful this truly is for your brand and this business. But don’t you worry, I’ll find a way to get through to you. This is not the last you’ll have heard from me, though. I’m doing all that I can possibly muster up to bring justice to the Visual Prophet and his EAW career, one way or another. And I will NOT fail. And that goes for you, too, Mr. Jeremiah. Do have a blessed rest of your evening.
(Shaking his head, Dr. Angelo D’angelo turns to exit the office, slamming the door behind him. Impact only shrugs his shoulders before he turns to leave as well. StarrStan and Veena begin to throw blame at one another for the outcome of the altercation as Dynasty fades out to elsewhere.)
(Dynasty fades back into the World 1 Theatre as a shot of Stephie Love is shown in the ring.)
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! AND IT IS A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH!
(‘Gimme More’ by Britney Spears begins to play as “Rad” Riley McCray makes her way onto the stage.)
Stephie Love: FIRST, MAKING HER WAY TO THE RING AND HER RETURN TO EAW, WEIGHING IN AT 126 POOOUUUNNDSSSSS, WRESSSSTLING OUT OF TRENTON, NEW JERSSSEYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! “RAAADDDDDDDDD” RILLELEEEEYYYYYY MCCCCRRRAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!
Stew-O: Riley McCray is back and better than ever! After two years away from the sport, she’s returned and she’s come back to claim the crown of Dynasty’s top competitor. Though she’ll be quick to find that Dynasty is a completely different jungle than that of which she may have once known. I think I speak for everyone when I say we’re all excited to see how well she fairs in today’s climate of elitists!
(The sound fades to voices of The Clash’s ‘I Fought The Law’ as Mike Murphy makes his way onto the EAW stage for the very first time.)
Stephie Love: NEXT, WRESTLING OUT OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSEEEETTTSSSSSSSS!!!! WEIGHING IN AT 247 POOOUUNNNDDDSSSSSS, MIKEEEEEEEEEE “YOU DON’T FUCKKKKKKKKKKK WITHHHHHHHHHH” MURPPPPHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!
Flannery McCoy: Mike Murphy is one of EAW’s newest recruits and tonight will be his first time gracing the Dynasty ring. This big man is a combination of athleticism, power, precision, and a buck wild attitude! It’s his very first match but he’s got a good a shot as any to walk away with a victory!
(The lights in the arena dim and focus on the entrance ramp as ‘The Invisible Wall’ by The GazzetE begins to reverberate throughout the arena. Komatsu Ogawa begins to make his way onto the entrance ramp.)
Stephie Love: AND THEIR OPPONENT, WRESTLING OUT OF KABUKICHO, TOKYO, JAPPPPANNNNNNNNN!!!! WEIGHING IN AT 251 POUUNNNDSSS, KOMMMMMMMAAATTTSSSSUUUUUU “THHEEEEEEEEEEE STARRRRDDDUUUSSSSTTT DEVVVIIILLLLLLL” OGGAAAAAWWWWAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Jake Mercer: Komatsu Ogawa quickly throws his hat and shirt and says lets get this thing going, he’s laser focused and he wants to show the world that he’s still one of Dynasty’s most vicious and prolific competitors, let’s get this thing going!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jake Mercer: Here we go! Look at this, “Rad” Riley McCray rushes Mike Murphy immediately! Pressuring the debuting Murphy into the turnbuckle, nasty punches to the face of Mike! Dragging him to the center of the ring, Riley looks to drop Mike with a sitout jawbreaker! AND SH- No, Mike is able to pluck her out of midair! Hoisting her up before she was able to fully execute the move! Now launching the mania driven McCray halfway across the ring with a belly to belly suplex! What a counter from big Mike! The powerhouse now turns his attention to Komatsu Ogawa- who isn’t there?! Ogawa from behind, a chop block to the knee of Mike Murphy! He took out Mike’s foundation, the bigger they are, the harder they fall!
Flannery McCoy: Komatsu Ogawas now with an attempted running knee at the back of Mike Murphy’s skull! Murphy was able to avoid it at the very last second! Temporarily evading danger,now fires off a superkick towards the face of Ogawa! Komatsu is able to telegraph the kick, catching the foot of Murphy, throwing it to the ground and following up with a big lariat! He nearly took Mike’s head clean off with that one!Now Ogawa peels Murphy’s body off the canvas, trying to set him up for a folding powerbomb! WAIT! Riley McCray back into the mix, toppling both men back down to the canvas!
Stew-O: Riley McCray gets a hold of a Komatsu, and drives him to the canvas with a devastating dragon suplex! What a way to reenter this match, now dragging Komatsu to the outside, ramming his stomach into the barricade. Riley has told us that she will make this match as nasty as necessary to win, and we’re about to see it! Komatsu Ogawa is able to regain his composure with a punch to the skull of Riley, who looks to fire back with a forearm, but Ogawa avoids it, and returns with a discus elbow to the jaw! Ogawa drops Riley with that discuss elbow on the outside!
Flannery McCoy: Now Komatsu on the apron, he’s calling for a jumping double knee facebreaker off the apron! This could put an early end to the return of RIley McCray! Wait, Riley able to rush the apron, Komatsu looks to boot her away! She ducks under the kick and sweeps the legs out from under Komatsu! He fell hard onto the apron after that nice leg sweep from “Rad” Riley! Now it’s Riley McCray who’s on the apron! She’s going to- SHE’S DROPKICKED OFF THE APRON AND SENT FLYING OUT TO THE FLOOR BY MIKE MURPHY@ OUT OF NOWHERE! NOW MIKE MURPHY HEADS TO THE OUTSIDE, HE’S ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! NOW THE TOP ROPE! THE BIG MAN, MIKE MURPHY…..TOP ROPPPPEEEEEE MOOONNNSSSAUUULLLTTTTTT!!! MIKE MURPHY WITH A MOOUNSAULT ALL THE WAY OUT TO THE FLOOR, TOPPLING RILEY AND KOMATSU!!!
Jake Mercer: Wow! What athleticism from Mike Murphy! With moves like that he’s showing us all that win or lose, he could be one to watch! Now he grabs Riley and rolls her back into the ring. Mike Murphy drags her to her feet and signals for the end! No! Riley with a sitout jawbreaker, stunning Murphy! Off the ropes goes Riley- BANG! SHE’S MET WITH A SUPERKICK FROM MURPHY! MURPHY RATTLES A BOOT OFF THE JAW OF RILEY! NOW HEADING UP TO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE, HE’S GOT VICTORY IN HIS SIGHTS! HE FLATTENS RILEY WITH THE ‘WINGMAN’!!!! THAT SPRINGBOARD CROSSBOYD JUST TOOK OUT RILEY MCCRAY, NOW MIKE GOES FOR THE PINFALL, THIS COULD BE IT!!!
Stew-O: Riley kicks out! Riley powers out at the very last second but Mike Murphy isn’t wasting any time! He’s heading up to the top rope, ascending the turnbuckles. He’s looking for ‘Cheers’! That massive falling elbow drop from the top rope, if he hit it, I’d imagine that’d have to be all she wrote! MURPHY IS THERE, HE LOOKS TO THE SKY! HE’S GOING TO FLY! WAIT, KOMATSU OUT OF NOWHERE, A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE CHIN OF MIKE, THAT SITS HIM DOWN ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! MIKE TAKEN OUT BY OGAWA, WHO’S RISEN FROM THE ASHES AND IS BACK IN THIS MATCH!
Jake Mercer: Now Riley looks for an attack but Ogawa buries a boot on her stomach, now hooking both arms, oh no!!!! OGAWA LIFTS HER UP AND THEN DROPS HER BACK DOWN WITH AN UNDERHOOK PILEDRIVER! OGAWA DRIVES THE SKULL OF RILEY DOWN WITH AN UNDERHOOK PILEDRIVER, THEN BOOTS HER CARCASS FROM THE RING! RILEY MCCRAY’S LIGHTS HAVE BEEN SHUT OUT AND NOW IT’S DOWN TO KOMATSU AND MIKE MURPHY! Mike Murphy still on the top turnbuckle, Komatsu is headed up to bring him back down to his own twisted and violent reality! Repeated blows to the back of the head, Ogaws is punishing Murphy on the top turnbuckle! Oga-BOOM! HEADBUTT TO THE TEETH OF KOMATSU OGAWA FROM MURPHY! HE JUST HEADBUTTED HIM SQUARE IN THE TEETH AND SENT KOMATSU REELING TO THE CANVAS! ON WOBBLY LEGS IS OGAWA!
Flannery McCoy: MIKE MURPHY DOWN TO THE CANVAS AGAIN, GERMAN SUPLEXING KOMATSU OGAWA INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! KOMATSU OGAWA WAS JUST SLAMMED NECK FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! Now it’s Mike Murphy who positions Ogawa on the top turnbuckle, now Mike on the second turnbuckle, what the hell is he looking for?!? He’s got Ogawa’s should- NO, HE’S LOOKING FOR A CRUCIFIX BOMB OFF THE TOP ROPE! KOMATSU OGAWA ON THE VERGE OF BEING DEFEATED BY MIKE MURPHY! WAIT, KOMATSU ESCAPES OUT THE BACK DOOR, ABLE TO BACK ROLL ONTO HIS FEET- RILEY MCCRAY IN WITH A RUNNING FOREARM THAT DROPS KOMATSU! NOW A STOMP ONTO THE BACK OF OGAWA’S NECK! THAT WAS BRUTAL! SHE STOMPED HIS SPINE AS PAYBACK FOR OGAWA’S EARLIER ATTACK!
Stew-O: MIKE MURPHY WITH A DROPKICK OFF THE SECOND ROPE! RILEY MCCRAY WAS SENT TUMBLING ACROSS THE RING, REGROUPING IN THE TURNBUCKLE! MIKE MURPHY CHARGES ACROSS THE RING, ATTEMPTING A CROSSBODY IN THE CORNER! RILEY ABLE TO GET OUT OF HARM’S WAY, THEN HIT MURPHY WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE STOMACH! A NICE COUNTER FROM RILEY, WHO NOW ATTEMPTS A CUTTER- BUT MIKE MURPHY ABLE TO KEEP HER FROM FINISHING IT, WHAT POWER FROM MURPHY! MIKE DROPS HER WITH A SIDESLAM, THEN A QUICK ELBOW DROP! A NICE SEQUENCE FROM MURPHY, WHO NOW PICKS RILEY BACK UP FOR A BIG GERMAN SUPLEX! NO! RILEY SOMEHOW COLLECTS HERSELF AND MANAGES TO NAIL MURPHY WITH A JAWBREAKER! SHE RATTLED THE TEETH OF MIKE MURPHY!
Jake Mercer: KOMATSU OGAWA, HE’S ALIVE! HE GRABS THE FOOT OF RILEY AND DRAGS HER OUTSIDE THE RING! RILEY GOES FOR YET ANOTHER SPINNING BACK KICK- BUT OGAWA CAUGHT IT AND SPUN HER AROUND INTO A REAR NAKED CHOKE! KOMATSU’S CHOKING HER OUT, HE JUST WANTS TO PUNISH HER, HE KNOWS HE CAN’T WIN THIS WAY! RILEY’S GOING OUT, NOW KOMATSU LIFTS HER ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, OH NO!!! OGAWA WANTS TO PLANT HER ON THE FLOOR WITH A ‘BLACK CRESCENT’!!!! HERE HE GO- MIKE MURPHY OVER THE TOP ROPEEEEEEEE WITH A SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY!!!!! HOLY HELL, WHAT A MOVE FROM MURPHY!
Flannery McCoy: Mike Murphy tossing Komatsu into the ring, these two may e on the verge of finishing this uberly exciting bout! MIKE MURPHY WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE- OGAWA HAD IT TELEGRAPHED AND MANAGED TO STEP OUT OF HARM’S WAY! NOW MANAGING TO LOCK IN ANOTHER REAR NAKED CHOKE! OGAWA HAS THE REAR NAKED CHOKE IN, HE WANTS TO FOIL THE DEBUT OF MIKE MURPHY AND DO IT IN DRAMATIC AND SINISTER FASHION! OGAWA IS TRYING TO SHUT OUT HIS LIGHTS…..BUT MIKE MURPHY WON’T LET IT HAPPEN! HE’S FOUGHT TOO HARD TO LET IT END THIS WAY! MIKE WITH A HEADBUTT TO THE BRIDGE OF OGAWA’S NOSE! BLOOD OOZING FROM KOMATSU’S FACE!
Stew-O: KOMATSU ATTEMPTS TO LOCK THE CHOKE IN ONCE MORE, BUT HE’S ARM DRAGGED TO THE CANVAS BY A VIGILANT MIKE MURPHY! NOW IT’S MIKE MURPHY WITH THE SUBMISSION IN AS HE LOCKS IN A BRUTAL CROSSFACE! OGAWA IS IN TROUBLE, KOMATSU IS IN TROUBLE, HE’S LOOKING FOR A ROPE BUT THAT WON’T CAUSE A BREAK IN TRIPLE THREAT MATCH! HE’S FADING, HE COULD BE GOING OUT! NO, HE’S SOMEHOW STILL FIGHTING!

THE ‘COURT OF LAW’ IS IN AND KOMATSU OGAWA HAS ALREADY TAKEN SO MUCH…..THAT’S IT, HE CAN’T HOLD OUT, HE TAPS! KOMATSU TAPPED OUT, HE TAPPED OUT, RILEY WINS!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY SUBMISSION, “RAD” RILEEEEYYYYYYYYY MCCCCCCRRRAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!
Jake Mercer: She couldn’t have written herself a better return than that one. A victory by way of submission against two very game opponents. I have a feeling that was just one of many memorable matches this young lady is going to be involved in.
Flannery McCoy: Mike Murphy’s EAW debut may not have gone his way but he certainly put eyes on him with this performance. What an incredible showing from him tonight, he’s got a bright future ahead of him on Dynasty!
Jake Mercer: This triple threat match exceeded all expectations and these three have much to be proud of!
Stew-O: But in the end it’s Riley McCray who can hold her hand in victory! Congratulations, RIley!
(Riley McCray is celebrating in the ring as Mike Murphy hangs his head, and Komatsu Ogawa walks up the ramp in despair.)
Stew-O: Thank you for sticking with us folks, Dynasty will be back with more action momentarily.
(Dynasty fades to commercial break.)
(A commercial for next weeks Friday Night Dynasty where it’s abruptly cut off by El Landerson who challenges Jake Smith for the PURE Championship at Pain For Pride 14)
( Dynasty fades back in from break and cuts to the ringside area. Stephie smiles into the camera and raises the microphone up to her lips. It’s time to announce the competitors for the next match. )
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLO-
( Before Stephie can finish, the lights flicker out. )
Jake Mercer: Oh brother. I was really hoping we could leave the flickering lights behind in 2020.
Stew-O: I guess someone has other plans.
( The videotron on the stage lights up. )
( #BoycottKOE )
Flannery McCoy: O.
Stew-O: That’s the same thing that was spray painted on the door. We saw it as we were coming in earlier this afternoon.
Jake Mercer: I think everyone saw it. I overhead several people talking about that hashtag in catering. Rumor has it that a disgruntled Elitist started it themselves…
( The virtual fans in attendance murmur their reactions, but pretty soon that is drowned out by an unrecognizable voice that comes across the PA system. )
Voiceover: Since it’s arrival into the professional wrestling world, Elite Answers Wrestling has been full of corruption. Lust and greed have always consumed the men and women who dare call themselves Elitists and more often than not, their shameful and selfish actions have been rewarded. Every single day, Elitists are given a platform to showboat, brag, and indulge themselves in pointless matches that allow them to add another vanity achievement next to their names. More often than not, these accolades end up going to waste as past champions are unceremoniously booted out of the company for one reason or another.
( The voice on the PA system obviously sounds pretty disgusted. )
Voiceover: If you look at the history of the King of Elite tournament in particular, you see a list of winners that represent absolutely everything that is wrong with this business. Men who have been cast aside and erased from history for one reason or another have worn the crown this year’s participants seem so desperate to win, and quite frankly, it makes me sick. It should make all of you sick. This tournament that you people are allowing to take place this year has allowed men like Robbie V, Dark Demon, Liam Catterson, Lannister, Eclipse Diemos, Tiberius Jones, Theron Nikolas, and Malcolm Jones to take center stage and further their careers for absolutely no reason. Careers that are either disgraced now that all is said and done, or in the case of Malcolm Jones, a career that will no doubt go up in flames before this season is over.
( There is a rather stern tone to the voiceover now, especially at the mention of Malcolm Jones’ name. )
Voiceover: However, not even those names can hold a candle to the absolute disgrace that was last year’s winner.
( A picture of The Visual Prophet flashes across the videotron. It’s his crowning moment at last year’s tournament, as he was named the winner. Jamie O’Hara would have Charlie Marr defeated but it would be Viz who would come out of nowhere to hit Jamie with a ‘Bow to the Heart’ and pin Charlie for the win. )
Voiceover: Words can not adequately describe the absolute farce that was last year’s tournament and the injustice that happened during the end of the match. The wrong man was crowned ‘king’ and as a result, the rest of us were forced to suffer through a tyrannical World Heavyweight Championship reign the likes of which this company has never seen before. This undeserving, uncouth, and abhorrent individual put us through absolute Hell as we had to watch week after week as he swiveled his hips, lived in sin with Serena Bennett, and did unimaginable things to a wild animal that eventually met a grisly fate thanks to another man’s aggravation with this phony king. Had this tournament been stricken from the books much like the equally corrupt Empress of Elite tournament was when Empire was buried for good, absolutely none of us would have had to suffer in the manner in which we did. We could have continued to live our lives, with smiles on our faces, and be none the wiser. Is it any coincidence that a pandemic swept the globe AFTER this man got his hands on that crown? I think not, and this is why this tournament should not be allowed to continue. PERIOD.
( There is anger in this voice now. The voiceover is pretty animated. )
Voiceover: It’s with great pain I watched the three qualifying matches take place earlier tonight, and it cuts me deep knowing another one is still scheduled to take place. The eight men involved in Dynasty’s tournament represent every single one of the seven deadly sins. Believe me, what is going on on the other brands is no better, but Dynasty marks the spot where it all fell apart last season. There are a few names I will be watching closely, because thanks to the events of last season, I have been given a chance to rewrite history. This tournament should not be taking place whatsoever. Boycott King of Elite is what we need to get trending. It’s a movement, and something I encourage all of you to get behind, because believe you me, if the wrong person is once again crowned, we are going to find ourselves sinking further down. I don’t like treading water, and barely staying afloat. You can only kick and flail for so long before your body grows tired and you become weak. I am conditioned to go the distance, but if this tournament is not cancelled, then I will do my absolute darndest to make sure that the wrong person doesn’t end up with a chance at that stupid, unnecessary symbol of greed.
( There is a long pause, leaving everyone speculating about who this person is, and what the real agenda is. )
Voiceover: Mark my words. Should this tournament continue, ALL will experience my wrath.
( And with that, the voiceover was gone. The lights came back up, and everyone was awash with confusion and excitement. )
(After a while the camera would focus back in the ring after the interesting display. Stephie would be looking in confusion but the camera would focus on specifically who was at ringside at that very moment. The Blicky Boyz, Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite would be looking around as Chris would be struggling to contain laughter as Malcolm would raise an eyebrow before just shaking his head as it was clear what they were out there for initially)
(‘Daigyakuten’ by Yuki Hayashi would play up to loud cheers from the crowd as Harper Lee bursted through the curtain with a smile on her face as she had the Unified Tag Team Championship around her waist followed by Sierra Bradford who was cheering her on as she had her half of the titles over her shoulder. Both of them looked to one another before Harper made her way to the ring)
Stephie Love: Introducing first… from Charlotte, North Carolina… weighing in at 118 pounds… she is one-half of the UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS… THE INVINCIBLE… HARPER LEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Two weeks ago at Road To Redemption we saw Harper Lee and her partner Sierra Bradford who is accompanying her tonight retain their Unified Tag Team Championships against Chained Fury in a match that will be remembered for a long time, they’ve gotta be happy with those results.
Flannery McCoy: Yeah and despite losing to Amber Keys at the Christmas show yet putting up an amazing fight, Harper moves on to 2021 and of course with that comes new challengers which we see at ringside right now, The Blicky Boyz. Harper is surely making sure to send a warning out to them tonight and she might just do that.
Jake Mercer: In my opinion ever since The Realm won their titles at Territorial Invasion on my Tumblr page I have shared my hate for Disney Princesses.
Flannery McCoy: They’re nowhere near that. :comeagain:
Jake Mercer: THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO THINK! But I have the truth about The Realm, you might need to pay for my Patreon though if you want to find out, FREE MONEY!
(Harper circled around the ring spreading her arms out to the crowd before jumping up onto the apron and entering into the ring. She would make her way over to the middle rope as she would climb up and raise the Unified Tag Team Title in the air before jumping down and heading over to her corner as she would begin to get ready as ‘Daigyakuten’ faded out. ‘Can You Feel My Heart’ by Bring Me The Horizon would then play up as Mary S. Atlas came out to the stage enthusiastically. She kept her arms spread out with a bright, excited smile on her face as she circled around the stage area before focusing on the ring as she pointed at it as she walked down the ramp)
Stephie Love: And her opponent… from St. Louis, Missouri… weighing in at 125 pounds… THE MISSOURI PRINCESS… MARY S. ATLAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Being new here and all Mary finds herself in a good position. Making her debut on the first Elite Answers Wrestling show of 2021 and facing a Champion nonetheless, she seems to be excited to have this sort of opportunity!
Flannery McCoy: Imagine if she wins? That could be astronomical for her. Skies the limit of course, even if she doesn’t win, I can’t wait to see how she takes in the landscape of Elite Answers Wrestling as a whole on the Dynasty brand.
Jake Mercer: Imagine coming out to Bring Me The Horizon, like c’mon how old are you??? 12??? I’m sorry, I can’t be insulting this woman for her theme… but still! When I was wrestling back in the Alaska Wrestling Coalition frontier I’ll have you know I came out with the classiest of music, NAV.
(Mary would pass the bottom of the ramp as she would climb up the steel steps and from there climb up to the top rope. She looked around the ring as she jumped over the top turnbuckle and circled around the ring before finding herself in her corner as she began to get prepared as ‘Can You Feel My Heart’ faded out and from there the Ref signaled for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: Here we go as this match is underway and Harper and Mary begin to circle around the ring! BUT MARY IS NOT WASTING ANYTIME AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK ACROSS THE SIDE OF HARPER’S FACE SENDING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! Mary mounting onto her now as if she’s looking to make an impression in her Dynasty debut then she’s got it as she’s beginning to send lefts and rights downwards onto the face of Harper!
(The camera went over to The Blicky Boyz who were laughing their asses off with the abrupt start to the match as Sierra, across the ring continues to keep a close eye on them while encouraging Harper in the ring as the match went on)
Flannery McCoy: Mary separating from Harper as it allows her to get back up, BUT MARY ISN’T DONE AS SHE ATTEMPTS A KICK STRAIGHT TO THE FACE OF HARPER! It’s Harper though that manages to grab her leg just in time and push it away to allow herself to recover! Both of them are back up now, AS MARY SPINS AROUND AND GOES FOR A DISCUS ELBOW!
Jake Mercer: But Harper ducks under as she connects with a body shot to her gut! Mary is sent down to a seated position as now it’s Harper running past her and to the ropes, AS SHE GOES FOR A PENALTY KICK RIGHT ACROSS HER BACK! Which connects as Mary stiffens up but manages to keep herself upward as she slowly begins to get back up to her feet! Harper grabbing Mary by her head and looking to toss her out of the ring, but Mary manages to land on the apron as she barely recovers! AND TRANSITIONS AS SHE GRABS THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A ENZUIGIRI KICKING HARPER DEAD IN THE FACE SENDING HER BACK!
Stew-O: Mary beginning to run on the apron as she’s climbing up the turnbuckles and up on the top rope as Harper turns around! AS MARY LAUNCHES OFF AND GOES FOR A ELBOW DROP TO A STANDING HARPER LEE! But Harper manages to roll forward and out of danger as Mary lands on her feet in confusion, AS HARPER RUNS FROM BEHIND AND PLANTS HER DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG!
Flannery McCoy: Mary flat on the ground but she’s already beginning to find her bearings as she slowly continues to fight on. Harper clearly isn’t interested in waiting as she grabs her, BUT MARY WITH A SPIN KICK TO HER GUT OUT OF NOWHERE! Harper doesn’t fall down as intended but she moves backwards as Mary runs towards her, BUT HARPER CATCHES HER AND SENDS HER FLYING WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY!
(Harper takes a glance out to ringside to see both Malcolm Jones and Chris Elite leaning against the barricade as they both continue to mock her)
Chris Elite: (Off-Mic) How the fuck is she struggling to beat enhancement talent vibe bozos like her :mjlol: these are our opponents right?
Malcolm Jones: (Off-Mic) Sure tells a lot doesn’t it. :mjpls:
Jake Mercer: Harper turning her attention right back towards the match as Mary is beginning to get up to her feet, AS MARY LEAPS UP AND GOES FOR A ENZUIGIRI! But Harper manages to duck under as Mary falls to the ground and Harper grabs onto her legs, BUT MARY SPRINGS UP AND TAKES HARPER DOWN WITH A HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN!
Stew-O: BUT HARPER LANDS ON HER FEET JUST BARELY! Harper trying to balance herself as Mary kips up and goes for a kick towards the back of her head! But it’s Harper that steps back and connects with a back elbow as she slips past her leg! Mary moves back as Harper grabs onto her, SNAP SUPLEX DROPS HER DOWN TO THE GROUND!
Flannery McCoy: Harper waiting for Mary to get up as she’s taking a moment to catch her breath while she has the chance! Mary is up onto her feet as Harper turns her around, DRAGON FIST!
Jake Mercer: MARY DUCKS UNDER THE RIGHT HOOK! Mary using the leeway to grab Harper as she tosses her out of the ring! Harper grabbing onto the top rope as she manages to find herself on the apron, BUT MARY RUNS FORWARD AS SHE KNOCKS HER OFF THE APRON WITH A FOREARM!
Stew-O: Harper crawling towards the barricade as her instinct is to quickly pull herself up because who knows what Mary has in store right now! BUT MARY LEAPS THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AS HARPER GETS UP AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!
(Chris Elite begins to strut around the ring as he makes his way over to Harper and Mary at ringside. Sierra Bradford wouldn’t hesitate confronting him as both of them would stare across ringside with one another before Chris holds up his hands and slowly walks back with a smirk on his face, Malcolm Jones not having moved a bit yet mirroring Chris as well)
Flannery McCoy: What a tense scene at ringside now as Harper is grabbing Mary and rolling her into the ring, PIN ATTEMPT!
Jake Mercer: HARPER KICKS OUT! Mary immediately back up to her feet as she finds herself backing up against the corner. She’s beginning to stomp her feet in anticipation as Harper is beginning to get herself up onto her feet, MARY TAKING QUICK STEPS FORWARD AS SHE GOES FOR ACCIDENT BY PRINCESS!
Stew-O: BUT HARPER MOVES AWAY FROM THE SUPERKICK SHOVING MARY AWAY! Mary falling against the ropes but she rebounds attempting to recover as she turns around and looks to patch her mistake and take down Harper!
Flannery McCoy: BUT HARPER OUT OF NOWHERE GRABBING MARY AND FLIPPING OVER! PGM! SUNSET FLIP BOMB SLAMMING MARY INTO THE TURNBUCKLE PADDING CONNECTS! Harper separating as she takes a circle around the ring, Mary beginning to pull herself up as I don’t think she sees what’s coming right towards her like a speeding bullet! HARPER IS GOING FOR PEACE SIGN!
Jake Mercer: NOT TODAY! MARY MANAGES TO DUCK UNDER THE RUNNING FACE WASH! Mary pushes away as Harper turns herself around in confusion, BUT SHE’S CAUGHT WITH LOST IN PARADISE! RUNNING HIGH KNEE OUT OF NOWHERE TO THE SKULL OF HARPER SENDING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND AS MARY HOOKS THE LEG!
Stew-O: BUT HARPER KICKS OUT ONCE MORE! Mary beginning to show some frustration as she’s getting back up to her feet. She’s waiting it out in the corner as Harper is beginning to slowly drag herself back up to her feet now. MARY IS GOING TO BE OVER! IF SHE CONNECTS THE DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER THIS COULD BE OVER!
Flannery McCoy: BUT IT’S HARPER WITH A MUSHROOM STOMP OUT OF NOWHERE CRUSHING MARY! Mary in a whole world of hurt right now but Harper isn’t finished as she grabs the arm of Mary and pulls her in!
Jake Mercer: FOLDABODY! MODIFIED GROUNDED OCTOPUS STRETCH LOCKED IN AS SHE ROLLS MARY DOWN TO THE GROUND! Mary just screaming in agony as she’s attempting to escape with all of her might but I think the pain is too much for her! The question is will she tap???
Stew-O: Mary has shown that warriors mentality all throughout the match if she just continues to fight just a bit longer there’s a chance that she could escape out of it! But a part of me believes otherwise because Harper has outsmarted her at the last second now that hold is really locked in tight! The question is how long can she fight for!
Flannery McCoy: YOUR ANSWER IS CLEAR! MARY IS TAPPING! SHE TAPS OUT TO THE SUBMISSION HOLD!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Daigyakuten’ plays up to cheers as Harper Lee quickly pushes Mary away and releases the submission hold as she gets back up to her feet. The Ref enters into the ring as he hands her the Unified Tag Team Championship but before he can do anything else Sierra Bradford quickly slides in and pulls Harper into a big hug. Sierra raises Harper’s hand in victory as the crowd continues to cheer loudly for The Realm as Harper continues to celebrate around the ring)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… HARPER LEE!!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: :mjcry: The Disney Princess won what has this brand degraded itself to.
Stew-O: What a match that we’ve seen tonight. Harper Lee getting the win entering into 2021 as I don’t think she can be any more satisfied at this very moment! Starting the year off with clear fire along with entering in as the Unified Tag Team Champion could not be any better and I can only guess that it can get better from here.
Flannery McCoy: Mary, although being a relative newcomer, put up a outstanding fight against a Champion here in Elite Answers Wrestling nonetheless, but it wasn’t enough as Harper comes out with the victory tonight! And we have to wonder what The Blicky Boyz’ response to this is. But nonetheless they are right there at ringside, and congratulations to Harper Lee for getting the victory!
(Harper and Sierra would find themselves at the center of the ring as they would direct their attention to the entrance ramp. Malcolm and Chris would be looking at them at the top of it as they would be exaggerately clapping and rooting for them before breaking down into pure laughter. They shrugged the Unified Tag Team Champions off easily as they would walk away and disappear to the backstage area as The Realm would roll out of the ring, shrugging them off as well, with a happy smile on both of their faces as from there Dynasty would fade out to commercial break)
(A commercial for Vitamin D starring Xander Payne is shown, everyone needs their nutrition)
(“Tougher, Colder, Killer” by El-P plays throughout the arena. Lethal Consequences takes his time heading out through the curtain. He finally comes out wearing denim jeans, a new Lethal Consequences shirt, and of course the EAW World Heavyweight Championship)
Jake Mercer: And here he is! Dynasty’s one and only World Heavyweight Champion! I think I have tears in my eyes, what a beautiful sight.
Flannery McCoy: After a decade waiting, working, just trying to climb to the top of the mountain; the journey has finally been complete. Lethal Consequences has finally been able to win the World Heavyweight Championship, and judging by his face; he wants everyone to know just how proud he is of himself.
Jake Mercer: Well wouldn’t you be? If I spent so much time being looked down upon like he was. Being told it was never going to happen again, of course you’d be ecstatic to win it! But I wouldn’t know anything about that, because I have the respect of all my peers.
Stew-O: Uh sure you do.. It was a wonderful moment for Lethal Consequences, but I’m sure he knows just as much any one else, the hard work begins now. The journey doesn’t end once you win the World Championship, now’s when the hard word begins.
(Lethal Consequences gets into the ring, and grabs a mic before pacing around the ring, trying to collect his thoughts)
Lethal Consequences: Well.. I bet none of you expected to see this picture after Road To Redemption huh? No, not just that. I bet none of you expected to see this picture for the remainder of my career huh? All of you, every last one of you, singled me out as someone that’s just along for the ride. Someone that might just be in EAW still as a favor with no real value. You motherfuckers sat back, and made your jokes, and wondered how LC still got World Championship matches in the first place. Well look here you limp dick losers, I’m the one with the World Heavyweight Championship. It doesn’t matter who you thought was going to win; your internet darlings, the people held in such high esteem, because the truth is, none of them hold a candle to me. 10 years, it took 10 years for me to relive this moment, and I refuse to take it for granted. So what happens now? I’m damn sure not going to take this for granted, I’m damn sure not going to all this hard work go into one moment and not live it up to the best of my abilities. If I can still become Champion after 10 years of doubt, and this “old man” can still whoop anyones ass regardless of if they’re 20 years younger than me.. What’s stopping me? You gonna pull Captain Charisma out of Voltage to come fuck me over? Gonna pull Jacob Senn out of retirement to regain another reign from hell that no one ever wanted or asked for? Gonna pull DDD from out of the gutter that I just put him in back at Road To Redemption? These people were nothing but manipulative pieces of shit that pulled strings to stay at the top, and put me down. Without the power, they mean nothing. I hold the power, I am the most powerful being in all of EAW, and it’s because of this..
(LC holds up the EAW World Heavyweight Championship)
Lethal Consequences: This right here shows that I am the best professional wrestler on Dynasty, and damn sure means I’m the best damn wrestler in this entire business. Professional Wrestling is always evolving they say.. They say that it’s become a young mans business, and I have no business being here anymore. Whether that’s true or not is irrelevant right? Whether it’s a young mans game or not, doesn’t matter because LC has no age. LC has no peers. LC is timeless, he is forever, and he is inevitable. So all those proclamations from everyone saying that it was their time mean fuck all. I knew the truth, I knew that Chris Elite could pull out a lot of things out of his ass, but not this win. I knew Xander Payne could eat an entire buffet by himself, but not the competition. I knew that DDD thought he could make anyone his bitch, but the biggest bitch of them all was DDD himself.. And I knew Visual Prophet could swivel his hips better than anyone, but he would have no choice but to swivel his ass right out of my ring when I was done with him… And Mitsubachi was there too.. So you know, I had it all figured out the entire time. And you may think that after all this time of distress where nothing was going my way, that it all went to my head but no… I was playing the waiting game, because good things come to those who wait. And of course it’s much more satisfying after a long wait. Because like I said this isn’t a young mans game, this is LC’s game, and you’re all just playing it.
(Pure Water by Skepta blares through the speakers as Dray Fontana comes out. He has a serious face as he wastes no time walking down the ramp, and right the ring announcer to get a mic)
Dray Fontana: LC, do us all a favor and shut the hell up would you please?
Lethal Consequences: No I don’t think I will meme
Dray Fontana: Right.. Then you will continue to stand out here babbling on making yourself sound more and more like a fool. You know the saying act like you’ve been there before? You should live by that right now. Because by the way you’ve been behaving backstage, and everything you just said right now, it’s pretty clear you have no idea how to act like a Champion. You have no idea how to act like the face of a brand, you’re out of touch. You’re acting out because you know this is your last chance to live it up. You never thought that this would ever happen again, so you have to make everyone elses life a living hell because of it. You’re just so desperate for people to remember you that you have to resort to such childish tactics.. It’s sad.
Lethal Consequences: What you fail to realize is this is LC’s world, and I’m just allowing you to exist in it. So I’m going to do, whatever it is I want to do. There is no acting like anything, LC is just LC, and if you don’t like it you can just go suck a dick about it… Not mine though, off limits. I’m sure Viz will swivel right up into you though..
Dray Fontana: Enough! You’re too old to be acting like this; and just because you won at RTR doesn’t mean that this game isn’t passing you by. Wrestling was built for the young, and I’m going to prove it to you.
(LC bursts out laughing at such a ridiculous thing to say)
Lethal Consequences: HAHAHAHAHA you’re going to prove it to me? How?
Dray Fontana: I’m going to kick your ass!
(LC looks at Dray with a straight face, before bursting out laughing again)
Lethal Consequences: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.. YOU’RE GOING TO KICK MY ASS?!!!! YOU?!!! Did you just lose the PURE Championship to a grown man that goes by the name Limmy??? LIMMY??? The guy that was thought to be in one of the worst Tag Team Champions teams of all time??? You legitimized that mans career, and you think you can come here, and tell me to my face, with a straight face that you’re going to kick my ass? Not on your best day. See, there’s a line to get to LC, and I don’t think PURE Championship losers are at the top of that list. You don’t really stack up to the competition you know? I want legitimate threats to me, and as you can see, we are two completely different leagues. I beat people like DDD, Visual Prophet etc.. And you lose to Limmy.. Do you see the difference? Do you see why you’re a complete loser, and I give no thought to what you just said to me whatsoever? So.. shoo fly, don’t bother me. Oh and never tell anyone that we ever spoke, I don’t want to ruin my street cred.
(Dray face turns red, and starts fuming. He reels back and slaps the shit outta LC. LC turns back to Dray, and a smile comes across his face, as he starts laughing. LC raises a finger to Drays face)
Lethal Consequences: Watch your back…
(“Tougher, Colder, Killer” by El-P starts playing again, as LC walks past Limmy, and walks back up the entrance ramp)
Stew-O: Strong words by both LC, and Dray Fontana there. I don’t know why LC wouldn’t take him seriously though; I mean he was a great PURE Champion, one loss shouldn’t shut him out from consideration.
Jake Mercer: Kids a loser, he lost to Limmy I mean come on! What more proof do you need that he can’t hang with a GOAT like LC. NEXT!
Flannery McCoy: Be that as it may Jacob, I think LC made a bad move by just laughing Dray off like that; I guess we’ll see how this pans out.
(A commercial is shown for Komatsu Ogawa and his LONG HORSE as MITSUBACHI runs away in pure fear as it chases him)
(The camera would fade into Stephie Love standing in the middle of the ring as she was ready to announce the next match of the night)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen the following is a singles match scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Stephie Love: And it is a ROUND ONE MATCH IN THE KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT!!!!!!!!!!!
(‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill would play up as Xander Payne would slowly make his way out to the stage. He didn’t seem to be the happiest person in the world and that was for good reason as he looked up and looked around at the crowd that continued to show their displeasure for him. He would shake his head as he would make his way down the ramp and headed towards the ring.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first… from Toronto, Ontario, Canada… weighing in at 250 pounds… THE PAYNEKILLER… XANDER PAYNE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: I can feel the negativity oozing out of Xander Payne right now and I can understand that. Xander once again coming up short in a World Championship shot at Road To Redemption in the Extreme Elimination Chamber, putting up a fight, but ultimately coming out empty handed. You’ve gotta wonder what that does to a man. But I don’t think that really deters him, it just makes him more motivated heading into 2021
Flannery McCoy: You’ve got that right, this match in particular is one that he knows well he needs to win. Not only being his first match of the new year but also a chance to kickstart a road that will lead right to King of Elite. The wonders that has done to careers, imagine what it could do for him? I’m sure it just runs through his head, and who knows! We might just see Xander Payne as the King of Elite for 2021!
Jake Mercer: Why does this man deserve the King of Elite? The only crown he wears is the ones that come with the kids meals from Burger King, get the fuck out of here with that kind of bullshit. You expect me to believe he’s fit for this??? HELL NO! HE’S NOT FIT WHATSOEVER!
(Xander would stop at the bottom of the ramp before circling around and making his way up the steel steps. He would immediately enter into the ring as he would go across the ring and step up using the middle rope as he would look around again hearing the crowd continue to jeer at him as he shakes his head and closes his eyes. He jumped off and made his way over to his corner as from there ‘It Follows’ faded out. ‘Slide’ by Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean, Migos abruptly blasted through the speakers to even more displeasure being shown from the crowd as Maxwell made his way out from the backstage area with a cocky look on his face. Feeling around his face as this was the first time in a long time that he didn’t have a mask on when he competes, he could only laugh at the thought of it as he made his way down the ramp)
Stephie Love: And his opponent… from Las Vegas, Nevada… weighing in at 231 pounds… THE TOP DOLLAR… MAXWELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Maxwell’s end of the year for 2020 was one to remember for him. Having come out with the victory in the Extreme Enigma Battle Royal and finding alliances with 3 new people as he bought out his Showdown contract and found himself on Dynasty, things are going very well for Prince Wealthy. And to think that it’s only going to go up from here in 2021?
Flannery McCoy: If there’s one position that he finds himself in it’s the fact that he is now inserted into the King of Elite tournament. What a great, dare I say amazing, way to start off the year by winning the King of Elite? Maxwell knows the stakes that are on the table right now and he knows exactly who he has to get through in order to do so, I have no doubt in my mind that he can conquer that, but let’s just see for ourselves.
Jake Mercer: :wow: What an acquisition. So rich, and even better! Associated with my name and hair twin Jake Smith :blessed: what a world that we live in huh? Money makes the world go round, it certainly does for me!
(Maxwell would move past the bottom of the ramp as he would circle around the ring before jumping onto the apron. He looked out to the crowd for a long moment, taking in the boos as he continued to smirk before entering into the ring. He took a turn and climbed up to the top rope as he spread his arms out before turning over to his opponent in his corner. He would jump down and find himself in his corner as well as ‘Slide’ would fade out and the Ref signaled for the bell afterwards)

But Maxwell with a forearm shot to his skull leaving him draped over the middle rope! Maxwell running as he’s jumping up onto the apron, AS HE CONNECTS WITH A KNEE STRIKE TO HIS TEMPLE FORCING XANDER BACK INTO THE RING!
Stew-O: Maxwell transitioning as he’s climbing right back up to the top rope and setting himself up as he leaps off! HE’S GOING FOR A SWANTON BOMB! WAIT! XANDER GETS THE KNEES UP! Xander barely managing to get himself out of trouble as Maxwell is in agony as Xander is getting up and recovering quickly, waiting for Maxwell to turn around!
Flannery McCoy: AFTER HOURS! WRIST PULL-UP INTO A SAITO SUPLEX TAKES MAXWELL DOWN! But Xander isn’t done as he isn’t going for the pin, he’s bringing Maxwell up as he sets him up! HE’S GOING FOR PAYNEKILLER! PACKAGE PILEDRIVER!
Jake Mercer: BUT MAXWELL SLIPS OUT! MONEY-MAKER! RIPCORD ELBOW STRIKE ABOUT TO CONNECT!
Stew-O: LAST SEDATION! SIT-OUT POP-UP POWERBOMB COMPLETELY ROCKS MAXWELL! XANDER GOING FOR THE PIN!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘It Follows’ plays up as Xander Payne quickly gets back up to his feet with an intense look on his face. Breathing heavily he presses himself up against the ropes and looks dead at the camera as he begins to yell. He points downwards at his knocked out opponent as the Ref makes his way over to cautiously raise his hand in victory. Xander shoves him away after a moment as he climbs the ropes, continuing to trash talk and brag about his victory here tonight as the celebration continues for Xander)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner and advancing to ROUND TWO OF THE KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT… XANDER PAYNE!!!!!!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: What a match! Xander Payne seamlessly rebounding from the Extreme Elimination Chamber match at Road To Redemption with a victory in the new year! And with that he also progresses through the King of Elite tournament. I’m sure if there’s one thing he wants more is to win the whole damn thing and that’s exactly what he’s shown by getting the victory tonight.
Jake Mercer: Who would want that man to win at King of Elite? In my opinion Maxwell should’ve won, not because he paid me off to say that before the show today… no no not at all…
Stew-O: Well speaking of Maxwell he’s fresh onto the Dynasty brand showed exactly why he was someone to be reckoned with on this brand stepping up to the plate and pushing a former Champion in his own right to his limit. Even if he is out of the King of Elite early that’s not going to derail anything that he’s got going for him right now, keep it up Maxwell. And as for the victor of this match, I give my congratulations to Xander as well!
(Maxwell would be sitting in a corner as he would have a disappointed look on his face. Not so much though as after a moment he would just give a slight nod before he rolled out of the ring. Xander would be seen making his way up the ramp until he got onto the stage, spreading his arms out with a stern look as that was the last shot seen before Dynasty would then fade out to commercial break)
(A commercial is shown as EAW promotes the new year and promises 2021 to be better than the last. Before realizing that 2021 is pronounced “2020 won” as it abruptly cuts off)
(Dynasty’s broadcast opens to the inside of the World 1 Theatre, slowly zooming in on the empty ring, the virtual audience in attendance tonight murmuring excitedly as they await the next segment of the evening. The broadcast cuts to the stage just as “Value” by A$AP Ferg begins to play throughout the PA system. The audience follows up with a thunderous yet mixed reaction for the EAW Chairman just as the seizure-inducing laser lights begin to dance around the arena. He stands atop the stage running both hands through his hair, wearing a pair of comfortably skinny black jeans over a skin tight black t-shirt hugging his biceps and much to Kassidy Heart’s appreciation [we can only assume as much]. Mr. DEDEDE, after taking a good look around his virtual audience while bouncing on the heels of his all-black Yeezys, slowly makes his way down to the ramp to the ring as the commentary team welcomes the viewing audience back to Dynasty.)
Flannery McCoy: Alrighty, everyone, welcome back to Friday Night Dynasty! Right now, we’re opening up the ring to the EAW Chairman who I believe has a few words to share with us, some serious “self reflection” as I understand it before we close off our show with the main event tonight!
Stew-O: We all know that the chairman has been in a worse mood than usual as of late, following multiple defeats at this season’s Road to Redemption in the Extreme Elimination Chamber AND in the Grand Prix finals.
Jake Mercer: And can you blame him?! I’d be pissed, too! I was certainly expecting the chairman to end things off on a much higher note after all the joyous moments he had this year, the birth of his twin daughters being the least exciting out of all of them! Somehow, things went terribly wrong for him at the tail end of 2020, and that’s no way to end a year as great as Gawd’s has been.
Flannery McCoy: “Great?” Are we looking back on the same year, Jake?
Jake Mercer: Get real, Flan. You can’t tell me you haven’t been impressed by DEDEDE all year long! Showdown had never been better than it was since DEDEDE finished last season on the blue brand in June. The second half of his 2020, he spent rebuilding and inspiring all of us here on Dynasty and I think it’ll only get better next year! It’s DEDEDE we’re talking about. He always finds a way to reinvent himself and reignite his drive. He’s reached insurmountable levels of success in Elite Answers Wrestling by doing just that, year after year after year. 2020 was no different if you ask me.
Stew-O: Jake makes a fantastic point–as hard as that is for me to believe–and I have to agree. It won’t be soon before the chairman restructures the foothold he has in EAW.
Flannery McCoy: Well, based on the look on his face tonight…I’m not so sure he believes that as much as the two of you do…
(DEDEDE, now inside the ring, grabs a microphone from a stagehand, waiting for “Value” to die down. He frowns as he slips a hand in his front pocket, staring down at his feet as he positions himself at the center of the ring before speaking. He stares directly into the hard camera as the audience grows restless, a hint of sorrow in his expression. Slowly, he brings the microphone to his slightly parted lips.)
Mr. DEDEDE: As-salām ‘alaykum. And Happy New Year to you all. I trust everyone was sensible enough to have a safe New Year’s Eve, snuggled up with your loved ones at home watching the ball drop, still wondering when yours ever will. Helplessly writing down your New Year’s Resolutions in hopes that one day, you might be able to “manifest” the life you’re desperately craving. Cannot relate. What’s the point of setting a “resolution” when I have everything I could have EVER wanted in life, and more? I have the woman of my dreams, and yours, guzzling my nuts just last night as her version of a New Year’s Eve kiss. I have a beautiful wife, a beautiful family, servants and employees at my beck and call. I am in the top 1%, I have no reason to NOT be happy, ever. And that might come as a surprise to some of you, especially after the year I had in Elite Answers Wrestling. Yes, I’m getting the impression that a lot of people will look back on 2020 as the year that Ryan Hussein Mubarak Adams continually failed. I recaptured the Answers World Championship at Grand Rampage, just to lose it again at Pain for Pride. I won War Games this year, which allowed me to reward myself with a World Heavyweight Championship opportunity, just to come up short inside of Glass Wallz. I moved on to Road to Redemption and bulldozed through the competition in the Grand Prix tournament just to lose both matches of those at the same event. “Ya blew it, Gawd! You just couldn’t succeed, no matter what you tried! You must not have it in you anymore. Why not throw in the towel and give up, if you’re so much of a failure?”
(He removes his hand from his pocket, running a hand through his hair as his eyebrows furrow, shaping his frown into a scowl.)
Mr. DEDEDE: Here’s a lesson: the way an individual defines “failure” will differ depending on many factors, much of which are out of the average person’s control. The environment they grew up in. The location of their birth. The family name they came to bear. They path the choices made in their life have forced them to follow. Or even the domain they inserted themselves into. No two human experiences are exactly alike. Failure is thus, a subjective experience. An experience that is not at ALL mine to claim, not in the slightest.
(DEDEDE begins to pace back and forth inside of the ring, turning his gaze away from the hard camera and looking around the virtual audience’s screens.)
Mr. DEDEDE: It’s hilarious to me. The way some of these ingrates insist on projecting the insecurities stemming from their OWN failures onto me. As if I have the slightest idea what that feels like to be deemed a “failure.” As if I have not been destined from birth to be in possession of great athletic ability, or the gift of a superior intellect. As if I did not have the foresight to be shrewd and careful with what I chose to fill the primordial void in my life with. It would have been chaos if I weren’t so meticulous. And I’d probably have been on the same level as all of you if I didn’t. I, too, would have fallen victim to that insatiable, voracious inner desire to be the absolute best wrestler alive despite knowing, deep down, that I don’t possess the function to do so. To kill myself trying to carry any and every piece of gold we can get our hands on. These Elitists these days do everything in their power to display their own desire, and have no shame in doing so, either. Be it churning out endless promos, or competing weekly around the clock at every juncture imaginable. Live tapings, supershows, Saudi shows, they toss their hats into the ring and leave everything that they’ve got inside of it. Win or lose. While part of me believes it’s commendable…it isn’t enough. Desire, alone, will never be enough. A lot of you fail to understand that you are pawns, no more, waiting to be extinguished if it is deemed to be the needful. Replaceable spokes on the proverbial wheel who can be discarded and forgotten by me in a heartbeat without even thinking. And the show goes on no matter the quality of character that comprises the cast. Thankfully–no, willfully, I don’t have that sort of problem. Willfully, there is never forgetting Gawd, or the gifts and the life he possesses. And that is deliberate. Intentional. And never will you all be able to say that you could bear witness to this sort of talent again, not in this lifetime.
(His pacing stops, just as he reaches the side of the ring facing the stage. He now looks down at the ground beneath him. He takes a moment to recollect his thoughts, still holding the microphone to his mouth so that his breathing is overheard throughout the PA system of the World 1 Theatre.)
Mr. DEDEDE: Desire or hunger alone is not enough to obtain anything worth having. You can crave and pine and beg and want all you can, but without results? Without the strength of a psychic apparatus like mine that will DELIVER one advantageous results? You have nothing. Over the years, you’ve seen my so-called “desire” diminish and watched me double my dollars all in the same juncture. Why’s that? Because I’m not concerned with tossing and turning at night in hunger. My only concern is eating good at any and every cost. The days of killing myself on a nightly basis taking percocets and piledrivers for 300 events out of a year have come to an end. Call it what you want, call it risk aversion, I call it optimization. An insurance policy taken out on my own path. At the risk of not ingratiating myself with the lesser. Why should I be ashamed of it? Ironically and contrarily enough…I would still willingly tear every remaining tendon in my own body if it meant maintaining unbridled authority over all of you. I’d sacrifice my body, I’d sacrifice my blood, I’d burn my own flesh and blood on an altar to further secure hegemonic order over all of you. And if you haven’t come to know this level of ironclad resolve, you will NEVER come to know this level of unrivaled glory. No, it hasn’t come that far. Not yet. But as long as I have a say in it, it will never have to. That’s why, it’s impossible for me to EVER be considered a failure. I always do what is necessary to maintain my influence, to uphold my preeminence over all of you.
(He turns his head up and stares out to the stage, making it clear that his last few words were directed specifically at the members of his entire EAW locker room. He takes a few steps backwards, resettling at the center of the ring, his cold eyes staring back into the hard camera lens as we slowly zoom in on his face.)
Mr. DEDEDE: لغة واحدة لا تكفي. And none of you can speak the language of a legend like Gawd himself, you don’t have it in you. The outdated notion of failure is what holds you people back from what little potential you have long lost sight of. That you have long lost hold of. And that’s under the assumption you ever once had an ounce of it once at all. The year 2020, while some might maintain this opinion that I have “failed.” That I am no longer “hungry.” That I don’t have the instruments necessary to keep pushing despite all that I am built to endure. And I am more than happy to tell each of you exactly how wrong you are. You can’t use layman terms to describe what it is I’m capable of, or measure the status of my career. You don’t possess the vision to be able to look at me and see me for all that I am. But it matters naught. When all is said and done, remember one thing: the only person in control of my destiny, the only person who gets to say whether or not it was I who “failed” or “succeeded” within the past year, is Gawd himself. And you’ll soon come to remember that as the next year passes. Inshallah.
(DEDEDE throws the microphone onto the ground, “Value” starting back up as he slowly approaches the ropes in front of him, leaning over them as the hard camera holds its close-up. He maintains his unblinking, piercing stare as he grips the ring ropes, allowing his words to settle with his audience just before commentary makes their closing statements.)
Stew-O: It might not have come across that way at first…but this was definitely a warning from the chairman directed at anyone who dares to step in his way this coming year. Either one of you have thoughts to share?
Jake Mercer: Don’t you absolutely love working here? I know I do. This is the best job in the whole wide world. I can’t imagine spending my life anywhere else. 🙂
Flannery McCoy: There’s not much to say, Stew. Tonight, Mr. DEDEDE has made it perfectly clear that he only sees himself as he’s always continued to see himself–absolutely unstoppable. You’d be silly to doubt him now, can’t imagine how anyone once might have before, but he has plans for the rest of the season that I sure as hell don’t believe could be brought to a halt by ANYONE in this locker room.
Jake Mercer: Do either one of you know where I can find a copy of the Quran?
(“Value” continues to play throughout the World 1 Theatre as DEDEDE finally backs away from the ropes–still maintaining eye contact with the camera, however, as he makes his way towards the adjacent set of ropes and exiting between them. Dynasty then fades to the final commercial break of the evening.)

(‘M3tamorphisis’ by Playboi Carti featuring Kid Cudi hits, as the virtual crowd boos heavily. Impact steps out onto the stage then makes his way down the entrance ramp and towards the ring.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen!! The following contest is your main event of the evening and it is a Fatal Four Way Match!!! Introducing first.. From Seattle, Washington.. Weighing in at 221lbs!!! IMPACT!!!!
Stew-O: Here comes Impact!! He’s stated how embarrassing the loss to the Blicky Boyz at Road to Redemption was and there is no doubt he wants to avenge that loss and get a victory over one of the men he competed against at Road to Redemption in Chris Elite.
Jake Mercer: Anything can happen when you’ve got the founder of the Impact Zone in the Impact Zone!!!
(‘GATTI’ by JACKBOYS and Pop Smoke hits, as the virtual crowd erupts into cheers. Andre Walker steps out onto the stage with his New Breed Championship wrapped around his waist. He pats his championship, then continues down the ramp and towards the ring.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent!! From Brooklyn, New York!! Weighing in at 185lbs!! He is your EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION!!! THE NOTORIOUS!!! ANDRE WALKER!!!!!
Stew-O: Walker successfully defended his New Breed Championship against one of the toughest and talented rising stars in Donovan Duke at Road to Redemption. The New Breed Champion now finds himself up against two former world champions and a former PURE Champion here tonight. A win here would be absolutely huge for Walker.
Flannery McCoy: True Stew! I’m sure his fans would love to witness Walker continue to rise with another major victory against some of the best in this company here tonight.
(‘Pure Water’ by Skepta hits, as Dray Fontana steps out to the stage. The virtual crowd boos heavily as he makes his way down the entrance ramp and towards the ring.)
Stephie Love: And their opponent!! From Kingston Upon Thames, England United Kingdom.. Weighing in at 200lbs!! He is the Prince!! DRAY FONTANA!!!
Stew-O: The former PURE Champion lost the title back at Road to Redemption against Limmy Monaghan. The Prince without his crown or title looks different, but trust me when I say that the talent is all there.
Flannery McCoy: What was up with him and Lethal Consequences? It takes a lot to confront the World Heavyweight Champion the way that he did, but Dray has shown this season that he is a different breed when compared to most opponents in the locker room.
(‘Invincible’ by Pop Smoke hits, as Chris Elite steps out onto the stage to a series of boos. Elite hops up and down for a moment, then makes his way down the entrance ramp and towards the ring.)
Stephie Love: And lastly!! From Brooklyn, New York!! Weighing in at 210lbs!! He is the Gawd Given Greatness!!! CHRIS ELITE!!!!
Stew-O: And here comes Chris Elite. One of the members of Blicky Boyz who ended up winning the Grand Prix final at Road to Redemption. He didn’t win the World Heavyweight Championship, but him and Malcolm Jones did earn themselves a shot at the Unified Tag Team Champions after enduring a grueling Grand Prix.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: Here we go! The first main event of the new year is underway!! All four men stand in their corners. They each look at one another.. Until Impact makes the first strike on Andre Walker! And then it’s Chris Elite at the other end going right after Dray Fontana with a series of punches!! Rights and lefts are being thrown by Chris Elite as Dray Fontana begins to stagger back!! Elite now grabs at Dray’s wrist and whips him right into the corner!! The Prince crashes hard against the padded turnbuckles as Chris Elite then charges in at full speed!! WAIT NO!! The Prince gets his boots up, and they catch Chris Elite right in the face and turn him all the way around! AND DRAY FONTANA GETS BEHIND CHRIS ELITE BEFORE TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!!!
Flannery McCoy: Meanwhile, at the other end of the ring, it is Impact who has Andre Walker in the corner! Strong knife edge chop by Impact!! Another!! And another!! Each one of these shots can be heard echoing inside of this arena as The New Breed Champion is seen clutching at his chest in pain! Impact now fires away with a powerful knee shot to the abdomen, then wraps his arms around the head of Andre! RUNNING BULLDOG FROM OUT OF THE CORNER CONNECTS FROM IMPACT!!!
Stew-O: And look up at the turnbuckle at the other end! Dray Fontana has scaled up to the top! He’s looking down at Chris Elite, then leaps out into the air!! DIVING DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP BY DRAY FONTANA CONNECTS AS HIS BOOTS DRIVE RIGHT INTO THE ABDOMEN OF CHRIS ELITE!!! But wait!! Immediately right after Dray connected with that double footstomp, it’s Impact who takes Fontana down with a running lariat!!! Andre Walker is down, Chris Elite is down, and Dray Fontana is down. The only person left standing is Impact!!
Jake Mercer: This is why we call this place the Impact Zone!
Flannery McCoy: We? You mean, you?
Stew-O: Impact is seen walking around the ring and looking down at all of his opponents. He quickly chooses his target as he grabs Dray Fontana from off of the mat and lifts him up to his feet. Headbutt to the sternum by Impact!! Dray bends over slightly after that shot, but then Impact grabs him by the head before connecting with a stiff headbutt directly at the head of Dray Fontana! If you all forgot, these two had an insane PURE Championship match at House of Glass that ended in a no contest. I’m pretty sure that Impact wants to get his victory over Dray Fontana here tonight! Dray drops down to one knee after getting hit with that headbutt. Impact takes a step back, then charges in on Dray Fontana.. SHINING WIZARD CONNECTS FROM IMPACT!! Dray Fontana instantly hits the canvas, then rolls under the bottom rope and out to the ringside!! Impact slowly begins to walk his way over to the ring ropes towards Fontana who is leaned up against the ring apron from the outside. Impact is exchanging a few words, but-
Flannery McCoy: Look Stew!! Behind Impact, it’s Chris Elite!! Chris Elite has gotten up to his feet, and he’s charging in on Impact!! However, Impact turns around and lowers his torso as Chris Elite runs right into.. A BACK BODY DROP OVER THE TOP ROPE!!!! Elite flips in mid-air, then crashes down onto Dray Fontana on the outside!! Both men at ringside are down!!
Jake Mercer: Look at the smile on Impact’s face! That is the look of a champion if you ask me. He’s calm and taking control of this match without breaking a sweat!
Flannery McCoy: You may have spoken too soon Jake, because it’s Andre Walker who stands behind Impact turns him all the way around!! Spinning heel kick to the abdomen by Andre as it takes a lot out of Impact! Walker then follows up with a pele kick that stuns Impact and forces him to turn around.. SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD BY ANDRE WALKER!! Andre is on a roll right now with these consecutive kicks on Impact. Walker then gets from behind Impact who is leaned up against the side ropes, and he grabs his tights before tossing the hall of famer out of the ring and down to the ringside floor beside Chris Elite and Dray Fontana! Andre Walker now makes his way over to the corner and begins to climb his way up to the top rope. He looks down at the pool of bodies on the ground. Fontana and Elite have made it up to their knees, as Impact is slowly working up to his. Fontana now up to his feet.. Then it’s Elite.. And soon after it’s Impact! But from the top rope.. It’s Andre Walker who leaps into the air.. DIVING METEORA ON ALL THREE OF HIS OPPONENTS ON THE OUTSIDE!!!!
Stew-O: Wait a second!! Chris Elite, the man who was the furthest away from Andre Walker gets from behind Impact and shoves him right into Dray Fontana just as Walker is coming down!! Elite manages to get out of the way, as the meteora lands directly on Impact and Dray!! Knees to the face of both of them as they instantly go to the thinly padded ringside floor!! Andre quickly pops up to his feet, but immediately after it’s Chris Elite with the box office smash!! No!! Andre Walker ducks underneath the leg!! PELE KICK BY WALKER!! No! Chris Elite spins out of the way and avoids the kick!! Andre now tries to work up to his feet after that failed Pele kick, but as soon as he does, it’s Chris Elite who hits him with the dick eatery stopper!! That Mike Tyson uppercut connects and forces Andre Walker back against the ring apron!! Elite isn’t stopping his attack however, as he steps up to Andre Walker and connects with not 1, but 2 fast punches!! Chris Elite then follows that up with a shoot kick to the chest!! Then a backfist across the face!!! Elite then goes for a lariat on Andre Walker against the ring apron, AND IT CONNECTS!! That’s the Five Borough Combo!!
Flannery McCoy: Andre Walker gets hit hard and instantly falls into a seated position up against the ring apron. Meanwhile, Chris Elite turns his attention towards both Impact and Dray Fontana. Elite makes his way over to the Impact, then brings the fellow Hall of Famer up to his feet, before sliding him back into the ring. Elite then slides in as well, then begins stomping away at the body of Impact!! Impact is being pelted by this series of stomps as he begins to scoot his way into the corner to try and get into a better position to defend against these stomps.. But wait!! It’s Chris Elite who drives his boot right across the face of Impact and that shot nearly knocked Impact out!! Elite now takes a few steps back and looks directly at Impact who is still leaned up in a seated position against the corner turnbuckles. Elite charges in.. HAWK EM!! RUNNING DOUBLE KNEE TO THE FACE BY CHRIS ELITE CONNECTS!! Chris just drilled Impact in the face and because of that, it’s Impact who falls down to his side in pain! But Chris isn’t done with Impact just yet. He grabs Impact by his left arm and leg before dragging the Hall of Famer into the center of the ring. Elite then hooks the legs and goes for the pin!!
Jake Mercer: And it’s Dray Fontana who breaks up the pin by sliding into the ring and driving his forearms into the back of Chris Elite’s head!
Stew-O: Elite slowly gets himself back up to his feet as he clutches at the back of his head in pain!! But before Elite could turn around to face Dray Fontana, it’s Dray who takes him down to the canvas with a backstabber!! Those knees just drilled into the back of Chris Elite and Elite immediately rolls himself out of the ring and leans up against the ring apron, facing the inside of the ring. But once Elite gets to the outside, it’s Andre Walker who is waiting for him.. SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD FROM ANDRE WALKER THIS TIME ONTO CHRIS ELITE!! IT CONNECTS!! Elite clutches at his head and slowly turns around after that kick.. But he gets kicked in the abdomen by Andre, then slammed back first into the thinly padded ringside floor after Walker completed a gutwrench power bomb!! Elite is clutching at his back in tremendous pain.
Jake Mercer: Chris Elite’s lower back must be in so much pain after taking all of those back shots. A backstabber and a gutwrench to the ringside floor in under a minute will not feel good.
Flannery McCoy: To be fair, I don’t think getting hit by any move feels good.
Stew-O: Back in the ring, we see Dray Fontana in the corner. He’s setting himself up as he watches Impact slowly rising up to his hands and knees. Fontana charges in on Impact from the corner.. AND CONNECTS WITH HIS SIGNATURE CORKSCR- WAIT NO!! Impact rolls out of the way before the corkscrew kick could connect! He’s been hit with that move before and I’m sure he has it heavily scouted this time around. Impact is slowly rising up to his feet after Fontana’s failed corkscrew kick. Fontana is also seen getting back up to his feet, but the second he gets there, it’s Impact who takes him down with a step up Enzuigiri!! Fontana got rocked by that kick and he is nearly out of it! What precision by the hall of famer, Impact!! Impact looks down at his groggy opponent, then over to the side ropes. Impact begins to run towards the ropes. Meanwhile, from the outside at the other end, it’s Andre Walker who slides back into the ring. Impact continues charging towards the ropes, then springs off of them.. LIONSAULT BY IMPACT ONTO DRAY FONTANA!!!
Flannery McCoy: NO!!! ANDRE WALKER CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF IMPACT JUST AS HE WAS FLIPPING IN MID AIR TO PERFORM HIS LIONSAULT!! IMPACT IS OUT COLD AFTER THAT INCREDIBLE MOVE BY ANDRE WALKER!! Walker now drops down for the pin on Impact!!
Stew-O: Kick Out by Impact!! That was extremely close and Walker nearly won this first main event match of the New Year just now. However, he’s going to do a little more before the victory is his. Walker gets back up to his feet and stomps down onto the body of Impact, then down onto Dray Fontana. The New Breed Champion now exits the ring, stands on the ring apron, and begins to make his way over to the corner turnbuckle, before scaling up to the top of it!! Walker is looking down at Impact and Fontana, trying to decide which person he should go after!! It looks as if it’s Dray Fontana who is working himself up to his hands and knees first though.. Walker looks directly at Dray Fontana, then leaps into the air!! DAWNBREAKER CANADIAN DESTROYER!!!
Flannery McCoy: BOX OFFICE SMASH!! BOX OFFICE SMASH BY CHRIS ELITE CONNECTS!! When Andre Walker landed down onto Dray Fontana, Elite slid into the ring and connected with his superkick finishing move before Walker could perform the destroyer!! Walker is down after that brutal shot by Chris Elite.. Wait look!! Elite turns around and gets hit with… THE EVISCERATION!! DOUBLE KNEE FACE BUSTER BY IMPACT CONNECTS!! Impact slowly works himself up to his feet.. BUT FROM BEHIND HIM, IT’S DRAY FONTANA WHO CONNECTS WITH THE FONTANA 97!!! THAT’S THE DESTINO AND IT DRILLS THE BACK OF IMPACTS HEAD RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS OF THE RING!! Everyone is down in the ring except for Dray Fontana, and he’s the one who covers Impact!!
Stew-O: NO!!! WHAT’S THIS!?!?!
Flannery McCoy: It’s Lethal Consequences!! The World Heavyweight Champion has invaded this match and he pulled Dray Fontana off of Impact by the boot from ringside!! These two went at it verbally earlier tonight and it seems like Lethal Consequences wants to send a message to the former PURE Champion. Dray instantly gets up to his feet, as Lethal Consequences steps up onto the ring apron.. The two get in each others faces.. Until Dray Fontana shoves Lethal Consequences!!! LC hangs onto the ring ropes, then responds by shoving Dray Fontana back!! And Dray Fontana bumps right into Andre Walker who was just getting up behind him!!! Walker now goes for a piercing forearm shot to the back of Fontana’s head!!! But no!! Fontana ducks under the arm and instead, Andre Walker’s forearm shot hits the champion!!! Lethal Consequences rubs his jaw and smirks for moment after getting hit by Andre Walker. The World Heavyweight Champion then enters into the ring and goes right after Andre Walker and Dray Fontana with a series of punches!! LOWDOWN SPINEBUSTER BY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES ONTO ANDRE WALKER!!! ANOTHER ONE ONTO DRAY FONTANA!!!! Chris Elite is just now getting up to his feet.. AND HE GETS TAKEN OUT WITH AN LCR JUDAS EFFECT!!! And look at Impact! He’s also slowly getting up to his feet, but Lethal Consequences is right there! He grabs Impact by the wrist and whips him towards the far ropes!! Impact bounces back off of the ropes.. AND INTO A LOWDOWN SPINEBUSTER BY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!!! This match is getting too out of control and out of hand!! The referee is calling for the bell!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: This match has ended in a no contest after the interference from Lethal Consequences.
Flannery McCoy: Yeah, but you have to believe that this match would have went to Dray Fontana if LC never came to the ring. He had just hit his Fontana 97 and was right there to secure the victory..
Jake Mercer: That’s why you don’t mess with guys like Lethal Consequences.
Stew-O: Well I am very certain that we will be hearing from Dray Fontana after he got screwed out of this victory right here. But anyways, this will conclude the first episode of the New Year!! Thanks for tuning in everyone!! And have a happy New Year!!
(The screen shows Dray Fontana on the mat looking directly at Lethal Consequences who had just exited the ring. The World Heavyweight Champion smirks out towards Fontana and gives him a facial expression that says “You messed with the wrong guy”. We get a final glimpse of Dray Fontana with a look of anger and frustration on his face before the screen fades to black.)
