( EAW Intro plays )
( COLD OPEN: Dynasty opens backstage to a dressing room door. A stagehand approaches it and knocks rapidly before speaking. )
Stagehand: Excuse me Darkane, you’re on in 5!
( The dressing room door swings open, and the audience gives a big ovation to Darkane as he walks out through the door way with his usual attire on and a cool, confident look on his face. )
Darkane: Fuck 5. Let’s kick this son of a Bitch off right now.
( The audience roars with applause as Darkane quickly makes his way off-camera. )
( Dynasty Intro plays, featuring the song “Revolution” by The Score. )
( Transition to the Mercedes-Benz Arena, where 17,000+ EAW fans are cheering with all of their energy as a predominantly young crowd holds up posters and ramp up their excitement all while “Revolution” continues playing on the sound system. )
Stew-O: We are rolling through the EAW European tour with such invigorating enthusiasm from this sold out audience tonight, as Berlin, Germany welcomes EAW back to another event in the beautiful Mercedes-Benz Arena! The King of Elite semifinals, a blockbuster main event and much much more is in store for this evening. Welcome everyone to FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY!
Talib Bari: Where we fight on Friday nights!
( “Wizard in Black” by Electric Wizard hits. The audience continues their electric release of energy, but it QUADRUPLES as Darkane is seen walking through the curtain by his lonesome with a look like he’s been there all before. )
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome the FORMER Answers Champion of the World, DAAARRRRKAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNEEEEE!!!!
Stew: Stew-O along with Talib Bari here, folks the last time you heard from us it was this man right there on the screen who made his Friday Night Dynasty return at a point where we all least expected it!
Talib: Yeah don’t adjust your television sets, this REALLY IS Darkane! He’s not dead, he’s not hospitalized, he looks alive and well — at least as “alive” as a guy like Darkane can look! Let’s get a look back at what the hell transpired last week at the end of a WIIILD night in Moscow!
( RECAP AIRS FROM LAST WEEK’S DYNASTY — Highlighting the PURE Championship bout between Erebus Jennings and Ms. Extreme, which would also be for a spot in the King of Elite tournament semifinals match. After a hotly contested battle, Ms. Extreme would defeat an already weakened Erebus to capture her first win and first championship in Elite Answers Wrestling. Following the match Devan Dubian rushed in to assault Ms. Extreme, laying her out with a Grand Zero. As Devan would make his leave, APOCALYPSE and Donovan Cross would make their way out to the ring and brutalize Erebus Jennings before he even gets the chance to recuperate. Right before APOCALYPSE could deliver the crippling blow to Erebus, Darkane’s music would hit shocking the entire audience, and he would send APOCALYPSE and Donovan Cross retreating with a ferocious onslaught — ending the night standing tall, and signifying his return to the fray. )
( Return to the current broadcast, where Darkane is pacing around the ring acknowledging the sold out capacity audience in Berlin. )
Talib: These EAW faithful here in Berlin certainly do not have a short memory, they are showing Darkane the admiration he deserves. Without a doubt this is a MAJOR player not just for Friday Night Dynasty, but for all of EAW! Let’s take it up to the ring and hear from the man the myth the legend himself.
( Darkane’s new theme music dies down, and it’s just him alone in the ring with a microphone and 17,000 screaming teenagers and young adults chanting “DARKANE!” )
Darkane: It’s been too damn long Dynasty faithful. These past number of months have felt like a fucking eternity!!! Every week away from here has felt like a year to me. My stint in the hospital felt like a prison stint. Rehabbing my injuries has been like pulling teeth, because you see, Darkane doesn’t do “rehab” very well….take that however you want it. Most people would be ecstatic to get paid to sit at home on their couch and collect workers comp…or EAW’s equivalent of it. Especially when the boss is the person putting you on your ass in the first place. But Friday Night Dynasty ain’t a motherfucking desk job, this isn’t just a clock-in-clock-out profession, this is a LIFESTYLE. AND DARKANE, IS, DYNASTY.
( The crowd erupts upon that declaration, and Darkane continues over them. )
Darkane: At least… at least… at least I used to be. I used to represent this brand with everything I had for all of Season 11, and Season 12. And yeah this place isn’t perfect, yeah there’s been bullshit from the top level all the way to the bottom rung, and I’ve had to encounter every single level of bullshit on my time here. But what made Dynasty special was that you could earn your keep by relying on these (holds up a fist to the camera) this was all you needed. Two fists, a set of nuts (no offense Cameron) and the willpower to accomplish what you set out to do. But in my absence Dynasty’s identity deviated from that. Sure, we had troopers. Erebus Jennings, love him or hate him, has been the shining example of that. A guy that’ll show up to work and bust his ASS in order to earn what’s rightfully is. But what did that get Erebus? All it did was put a fucking target on his back…and it’s the same target that was put on my back, for the exact same reason.
In my absence, Friday Night Dynasty became the “Theron and DDD” show and the rest of us have been rendered to puppets meant to dance like a toothless junkie desperate for his next fix. There was nothing…nothing…NOTHING more soul crushing than having to watch DEDEDE and his bullshit with Carmen Ava, seeing him take up the air time on a brand that prides itself for in-ring competition, and completely sell out the identity of this show. The ball-less bastard steps down from his ivory tower and gets involved with those who get in the way of his agenda. That makes Erebus and I prime targets, all while his pet projects like Theron are treated like prime time talent.
But I realized something very early in my time away… I watched the assault that was unleashed on me, the attack that put me on the shelf, and I realized that there is a war on this show. It’s not a war of attrition, it’s a war of narratives. There are two sides who want to control the narrative: The side that believes in parity and fighting for your share, and the side that believes in preordained destiny, so long as it’s at their beckon call. And if I want to stand a chance in this fucking war, I can’t be the same Darkane that I was as the Answers World Champion. I have to evolve… and you are all looking at the next evolution of Darkane.
( Crowd cheers. )
Darkane: I’ve gone my whole career relying on my street smarts and my instincts. Well instincts aren’t enough for scum the likes of our chairman. They aren’t enough to take back the Answers World Championship. They aren’t enough to behead The Monster and exorcise The Devil. The only way I can return to the top is by aiming for the top, and DEDEDE, you son of a Bitch, I KNOW you’ve got a deadlocked target on me, so I want you know I have my weapon aimed for the sky. And if you don’t have the balls to come out and face me like a man, I will wreak so much havoc on this brand I will leave you with no choice but to confront me like a ma–
“ILLEST MUTHAFUCKA ALIVE!!!!!”
Stew: UH OH.
( “Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Jay Z and Kanye West plays, as the LED stage glows a familiar shade of gold. Darkane appears prepared for DEDEDE…. but the crowd boos intensely as Theron Nikolas walks out to the stage dressed in a 1% sleeveless t-shirt with the Answers World Championship over his waist and a “God Emperor” armband over his left arm. )
Talib: Well I think, like you Stew, these people were all prepared for DEDEDE to be the one who answers Darkane’s statements, but this may be even bigger than that, because he is being approached by the God Emperor!
Stew: I’ll admit I did expect it to be DEDEDE responding to him, especially due to how personal things have gotten between the both of them, but it appears as though Theron has something to say to the former Answers World Champion.
( Theron enters the ring and calls for the music to die down. )
Theron Nikolas: (smirking) Oh Darkane…. what an example of mankind’s folly. Our propensity to complicate the easiest situations, and turn them into our own personal greatest hardships. You could have stayed home and prevented all of this, you know that? Correction — you SHOULD have stayed home and prevented your own demise, because that’s what’s coming for you if you think you’re going to aim for the top and survive against me. And I get it you’re hired wired to fighting against the grain. After all you’ve overcome a lot of adversity in your life haven’t you? I’ll admit I respect that. I even admire it, truth be told. But there isn’t a man or woman in Elite Answers Wrestling who has overcome God Emperor Theron…. that isn’t going to change with Jamie O’Hara after I finish him off at King of Elite…. and it damn sure isn’t going to change with you.
Darkane: Theron, I know you’re trying your best to put on your big brother counselor pants lately and be some World Champion-turned-consultant, but if you ask me you really should stick to your day job. You know, being DDD’s bitch.
( The crowd reacts with “OOHH’s” and Theron smiles and laughs. )
Darkane: I don’t need career advice from you asshole, the only thing you have that I want is the Answers World Title. You know, the same title you got handed to you on a silver platter by two geriatric fucks during your coronation at Operation: Doomsday. And I could give two SHITS about your match against Jamie O’Hara, because as far as I’m concerned you’re carrying around stolen property, and it belongs to me.
Theron: Stolen property huh? Amazing how quickly we let excuses fly when it’s convenient for ourselves. Couldn’t be me, is all I’ll say. No pal the Answers World Championship wasn’t stolen from you, you’re just a loser. The only reason you ever held this title on the first place was because I didn’t get my hands on it yet. So long as you’re on the same brand as me you will never so much as even touch this title again, and I don’t need another man on this planet to do away with you, as a matter of fact I can make what DDD did to you look like childsplay on a whim.
Darkane: Yeah? Sounds like nothing but cheap talk to me. If you really believe what you’re saying why don’t you back your useless words with actions and defend that Answers World Championship against me right here, RIGHT NOW.
( The crowd erupts. )
Theron: You know what Darkane, I can tell in your eyes you think I don’t have it in me, which is fine. But understand something, I’m not the God-Emperor just because it’s a catchy name, I’m the God-Emperor because I back what I say with RESULTS. I’m your unmerciful overlord, I am your ruler, I’m your supreme leader, and since we’re in Germany tonight I guess that makes me your FUHRER.
( The audience lets off with a chorus of boos, and Theron looks around and laughs at the offended Berlin crowd. )
Theron: That’s right, and I’m going to make you kneel before your Fuhrer like the worm that you are. As far as your Answers World Championship shot? You’ll get you what you wish, just be careful what you wish for. Let’s get this started RIGHT NOW!
( Theron rips off his 1% t-shirt and Darkane calls for a referee, while the audience cheers in anticipation. )
Stew: WE’RE REALLY GOING TO SEE IT?
Talib: I CAN’T THINK OF A BETTER WAY TO KICK DYNASTY OFF! AN OPERATION: DOOMSDAY REMATCH ON FREE TV FEATURING THE GOD-EMPEROR HIMSELF AGAINST THE FORMER CHAMPION, DARKANE!
( A referee enters the ring and begins talking to a ring crew worker, telling them instructions as far as the upcoming sanctioned World Title match. )
Stew: WAIT A MINUTE!!!!! WHAT THE HELL?!?! DARKANE GOES DOWN!!!!
Talib: IT’S DONOVAN CROSS!!! DONOVAN CROSS JUST SMASHED SOOTHSAYER HAMASA’S STAFF OVER THE SPINE OF DARKANE! AND NOW HE’S MOUNTED OVER HIM BATTERING PUNCHES REPEATEDLY INTO DARKANE’S TEMPLE! WHERE THE HELL DID HE COME FROM?
Stew: The official trying to rip Donovan Cross away from Darkane, but Cross LUNGES for the official’s throat causing him to scramble away and retreat! AND COME ON!!! THERON IS JOINING IN ON THE ACTION NOW! THIS MUST HAVE BEEN SOME SORT OF SET UP ALL ALONG! IT’S A TWO ON ONE BEAT DOWN WITH DONOVAN CROSS AND THERON NIKOLAS STOMPING THE HELL OUT OF DARKANE! I KNEW THIS WAS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!
Talib: Theron and Donovan delivering a gruesome beating, Darkane can hardly even defend himself! Cross drags Darkane up from the canvas and holds his head in place — JUST FOR THERON TO BLAST DARKANE ACROSS THE FACE WITH A SUPERKICK!!!
Stew: And now Theron is just showing off! How can you call this man a God-Emperor when he behaves like this? What Emperor do you know acts like that Bari?
Talib: The mugging continues, Donovan Cross just unloading on Darkane, backing him into a corner and delivering furious knee strikes!
( CROWD ERUPTS. )
Stew: WAIT A SECOND!!!!! LOOK WHO’S HOPPING OVER THE BARRICADE!!! IT’S JAMIE O’HARA!!!! THIS AUDIENCE HAS LOST THEIR MINDS!!!! O’HARA ENTERS THE RING, DUCKS A CLOTHESLINE FROM THERON, AND BLASTS CROSS ACROSS THE FACE WITH A DROPKICK!!! O’HARA SPRINTS BACK TO THERON, AND TACKLES HIM TO THE GROUND BEFORE UNLOADING WITH RIGHTS AND LEFTS! THERON KICKS JAMIE OFF OF HIM, THEY BOTH SCRAMBLE UP TO THEIR FEET, IN EXCELSIS!!!!!!
Talib: THERON DODGES THAT! SUPERKICK!!! O’HARA DUCKS UNDER IT, RUNS THE ROPES, SLINGBLADE!!!! TURNING THERON INSIDE OUT! NOW HE CHARGES RIGHT AT DONOVAN CROSS, AND THE TWO ENGAGE IN A HOCKEY STYLE BRAWL!
( “Sound of Silence” by Necroblaspheme hits. )
Stew: OH NO!
Talib: APOCALYPSE!!!! APOCALYPSE STORMING DOWN TO THE RING, ALL WHILE O’HARA IS FAR TOO PREOCCUPIED WITH DONOVAN CROSS TO EVEN TURN HIS ATTENTION! BUT YOU CAN NEVER IGNORE A MASTODON LIKE APOCALYPSE FOR LONG, HERE HE COMES!
Stew: O’HARA HOOKS CROSS DELIVERING THE STARDUST BREAKER!!!!
Talib: WHAM!!!! BEFORE O’HARA DELIVERS THE MOVE, APOCALYPSE PUNCHES JAMIE SQUARE IN THE FACE WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS! HOOOOOOOLY SHIT! THAT WAS A RIDICULOUS SHOT! O’HARA IS ON WOBBLY LEGS, CROSS REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES, INVERTED CROSS!!! FEROCIOUS CROSSBODY ON O’HARA!
Stew: AND THE MONSTROUS MAN TOWERS OVER O’HARA, HOISTING HIM UP FROM THE FLOOR WITH HIS BARE HANDS…. BEFORE SENDING HIM ACROSS THE RING, LITERALLY ACROSS THE RING WITH A MASSIVE BEAL!
Talib: A RECOVERING DARKANE DRAWS THE IRE OF THE MONSTROUS MAN, AND APOCALYPSE HOISTS DARKANE UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS!!!! HELIX NEBULA!!!!!!!!! F-5 DRILLING DARKANE INTO THE CANVAS, AND YOU COULD FEEL THE ENTIRE RINGSIDE AREA SHAKE JUST UPON THE IMPACT!
( Jamie O’Hara is at the corner recovering, attempting to pull himself up. )
Stew: GAMMA!!!! RAY!!!! BURST!!!!!! RUNNING POUNCE SENDING JAMIE O’HARA THROUGH THE ROPES, AND CRASHING THROUGH THE OUTSIDE LIKE HE WAS SHOT OUT OF A FREAKING CANNON!!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!
( APOCALYPSE stomps around the ring beating his chest, and Theron Nikolas stands by with a shit-eating grin on his face, nodding at the scene he’s caused. “Sound of Silence” comes back on, and Theron, Donovan and APOCALYPSE stand tall — albeit with Theron keeping himself out of distance from the crossfire. We then see a laid out Darkane struggle to get his wits about him, and we see O’Hara at ringside barely conscious and writhing in pain. )
Talib: The fans letting them have it, letting their disapproval be heard, but there’s not a man standing in that ring that gives a damn about anybody’s approval!
Stew: It is a frightening time to be on Friday Night Dynasty, it seems like the more time that passes the more imposing of a threat Monster and The Devil become.
Talib: I have to agree, we already know Theron’s pedigree, but somehow Donovan Cross and APOCALYPSE become more dangerous, more bloodthirsty, and the fact that they’re under Mr. DEDEDE’s monetarily gained influence? Scary hours.
( COMMERCIAL BREAK — including a recap for last night’s edition of Thursday Night Empire! )
( We see a recap of the 3 on 2 beatdown that took place before the break, causing APOCALYPSE, Donovan Cross and God Emperor Theron to stand tall over Jamie O’Hara and Darkane. )
( “Revolution” by The Score is heard in the background and we see a match card hyping up the main event: Jamie O’Hara and Darkane vs APOCALYPSE and Theron Nikolas. )
Stew: Fresh off of the events that transpired earlier it has been made official by Dynasty General Manager Starr Stan! For the first time ever JAMIE O’HARA and DARKANE will be in the same ring, in the same match, and in this instance on the same side as they make a historic alliance to team up against APOCALYPSE and the Answers World Champion, Theron Nikolas!
Talib: BLOCKBUSTER main event match, some amazing booking by the head honcho Starr Stan, that’s a match that is going to get a loooot of youtube views!
( Another card is shown hyping up the King of Elite semifinals. )
Stew: Also to come — the NEW PURE Champion Ms. Extreme will meet Jason McKormick of The Score to determine who goes to the King of Elite finals in Johannesburg, South Africa and competes for the crown! We’ve barely been able to scratch the surface tonight on Dynasty, and the action comes your way after another short break!
( Commercial break for bread: “Who put Peanut Butter and Jelly together? I’m the glue.” )
( Camera opens up backstage to Bowie Gray in a worn down, wrecked up dressing room that he himself has demolished. He is standing in the middle of two rectangular mirrors. )
Bowie Gray: (To himself) They’ll never love you. They never loved you to start with. It ain’t made a fuckin difference how many victories youse got. Ten wins, twenty wins, fifty wins, it don’t mean nothin’.
( Turns to the other mirror. )
Bowie: You gonna keep talkin’ to him like that out there versus that big sonuva bitch Hades? You gonna keep puttin’ ‘im down? How you gonna drop a beast like that with THAT attitude, kid?
( Turns to the other mirror. )
Bowie: Ain’t no use kid, don’t listen to him, he talked ya’ up big time and look where that gotcha’. Kicked outta school, uneducated, no real future. Ya’ need to go back and get yerself a trade. Make an honest living for yerself–
( A knock is heard on the door. )
Bowie: You gonna answer that? Doors don’t answer ’emselves ya know…
( The door can be heard opening, and walking into the frame is none other than Devan Dubian. He approaches Bowie Gray with a sinister grin on his face, looking down at him with his arms crossed. )
Devan Dubian: Excuse me for interrupting. Would you mind if we had a little bit of a chat?
Bowie: (straightens himself up) Yeah….sure.
Devan: I hope you don’t take this the wrong way lad, but I’ve been watching you.
Bowie: Figures. Been watched my whole life now. Might as well be by somebody important.
Devan: I don’t mean it in a negative way. I’ve had my eye on you ever since you made your rounds on Battleground. You are a talented bloke. A bit rough around the edges, a tad bit unhinged, but somebody who can leave their mark on this show. (looks around at the trashed up locker room ) Clearly we are from two different worlds. But although you may be some…oddly stenched, haggard, pallid fellow, and I myself am a marvelous specimen with royal blood, there’s quite a bit we have in common.
Bowie: For real? Like what?
Devan: Well when it boils down to it……… we don’t give a damn human life.
( Bowie raises his eyebrows. )
Devan: I certainly put on the act for a while, attempting to play a role that I simply do not fit, but those days are over. And I know good and well that our commonalities exist for a reason. From the first moment I witnessed you in competition, I knew that you were a man living out his calling. I would like to make myself an acquaintance.
( Devan extends his hand. Bowie looks down at it. )
Bowie: Ya know somethin’ Dub. I like the cut of your jib.
( Bowie accepts Devan’s handshake, and they both share sinister smiles. )
Bowie: Pleased to meet ya.
( Devan nods, turns around and exits. Bowie begins speaking to himself again. )
Bowie: That’s a stah right there Bowie. You wanna be a stah dontcha?
( Camera opens back up to the arena as the fans are prepared for the first match. )
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
( “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled blasts over the arena speakers sending the crowd into a raucous frenzy. )
Stephie: Introducing first, Being accompanied by Thadd Blazevich and Carsyn Carter, from Woodbridge, New Jersey, weighing in at 199 pounds… CCCCCCRRRRRROOOOOOSSSSSSBBBBYYY CCCCCAAAARRRRTTTTTEEEERRRR!!!
( Crosby steps out on stage full of energy and excitement as Thadd follows close behind chill as ever and Carsyn joins the two on the way down to the ring. The two acknowledge the capacity crowd before nodding at each other and sharing a fist bump. Crosby and Carsyn lean in towards each other for a kiss. )
Stew: A great opportunity lays before this man here tonight as Crosby Carter looks to put on a performance that will impress Starr Stan enough to earn a contract to compete here on Dynasty! It certainly can’t be easy an easy task when you consider all that our general manager has seen and done in his illustrious career in EAW, but if there where any nerves on the part of Crosby, he certainly isn’t showing them!
Talib: Well I guess it’s lot easier to staying calm when his beautiful wife Carsyn and his bro Thadd Blazevich in nearby! Heck I think I’m getting a bit of a contact high the closer he gets to our table! And speaking of Thadd, if Crosby should get a contract he’s gonna owe him big time! I mean think of all the wrestlers who wish that they had this kind of try out! Or about all the guys who had to go through battle ground back when that was a thing!
Stew: Well there a may a little truth to the saying it’s who you know, but whatever the case may be, StarrStan was willing to give this man a chance to prove his worth, and at the moment I’m not seeing a reason to disagree with Thadd’s recommendation here, Crosby looks like a natural as he steps into the ring!
Talib: yeah but we’ll see if he looks as good once the bell rings.
(As Cater stands in the middle of the ring, his music fades out and is replaced by “DUST” by tremonti.)
Stephie: and his opponent, from Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 235 pounds, THE ALPHA KING… KKKKKKKKEEEEEEEVVVVVVVIIIIINNNN HHHHHUUUUNNNTTTTTEEERRR!!!
( Hunter steps out to a mixed reaction as he makes his way towards the ring. )
Stew: Last week we saw Kevin Hunter in a fantastic back and forth match against Shaker Jones, and despite coming up just short,it was certainly a good look for this man right here!
Talib: I’d have to agree with you there, Hunter looked like he had the match won at several points and I can’t really fault him for his loss, it was just Shaker’s night last week!
( Hunter enters the ring, and the official calls for the bell. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: There’s the bell, these two men circling around in the center of the ring, collar and elbow tie up with both men jockeying for position, Carter gets the standing side headlock! Kevin trying to shove him off, but Crosby hanging on and with the headlock takeover has Hunter down to on the mat! Crosby obviously trying to out Wrestle Hunter!
Talib: But Kevin isn’t just gonna lie down, no pun intended! He counters with a head scissors showing he knows a thing or two about how to actually wrestle! Hunter now leaning back and applying more pressure, almost looking like he’s got a choke on from here! He’s a little too far back and that helps Carter kick out of the hold!
Stew: Both men back to their feet, and again Carter with the headlock takeover! You gotta think he’s trying to score some points with one of the best mat wrestlers the world has ever seen, as Thadd and Carsyn applaud approvingly!
Talib: Carter better focus on the guy in the ring than what anybody might think about him, or else he’ll walk away with nothing but memories of that one time he was on tv, that is assuming Kevin Hunter doesn’t leave him concussed tonight!
Stew: Carter still in control but Hunter fighting up to his feet! Hunter with a shot to the kidney! Now another! Kevin shooting Carter off the ropes, and Kevin connects with a hard shoulder block that sends Crosby down to the mat!
Kevin Hunter (off mic): Don’t screw with the king!
( Kevin turns to play up to the crowd, while he does he doesn’t notice Crosby nipping up to his feet behind his back.)
Stew: Hunter turning around, and he eats a right hand from Crosby Carter! Carter lands a second! Now a third! Crosby with the Irish whip, and catches Kevin Hunter flush with a beauty of a dropkick! Hunter back up quickly, And Crosby connects with a Gamengiri! Wow did you hear that kick echo?! That was an incredible shot right to the dome of Hunter! AND SOMEHOW HUNTER GETS BACK TO HIS FEET!!! Kevin staggering a bit, and Carter with the hurricanrana! Kevin’s shoulders are down Crosby reaches back and has both legs trapped for the pin! This might be over quick!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE! TTTTWWWWWOOOOO!
Stew: Hunter powering out somehow! Both men back to their feet! Crosby with the Irish whip that sends Hunter hard into the corner! Carter charges in after him, and connects with the running dropkick! Carter Landing On his feet as Kevin sits slumped down against the bottom turnbuckle! Crosby sprints towards the opposite side, and comes back with a full head of steam, And wow that sliding elbow strike nearly took Hunter’s head clean off! I mean look at the impact and the whiplash from the back of his head hitting That turnbuckle!
Talib: Hunter left sprawled out on his back as Carter begins to climb up the turnbuckles! Crosby perched up on the top rope waiting for Kevin to stand back up! Kevin up now to a knee, and Hunter now rolling away! He must have caught a glimpse of Crosby up on that top rope! Kevin now rolling out of the ring trying to catch a breather and figure out a way to slow down Crosby Carter!
Stew: But In the ring Carter hoping down off the turnbuckle, and now begins to pick up steam… SUICIDE DIVE!!! Carter connects driving Hunter hard into the guard rail! It is not a good day to be Kevin Hunter’s neck as I think that’s what made first contact against that railing! Carter rolling Hunter back into the ring under the bottom rope! Crosby climbing onto the apron, Kevin getting back up as Crosby leaps up… SPRINGBOARD- OH MY!!! HUNTER JOSTLING THAT TOP ROPE IN A DESPERATION MOVE! AND CROSBY CAME DOWN THROAT FIRST ACROSS IT!!!
Talib: Crosby Carter down on the floor clutching at his throat! His wife Carsyn coming to his aid! I don’t know how bad he is right now but he may have damaged his larynx!
Talib: And now Hunter after him, shooing away Carsyn!
Kevin Hunter: (to Carsyn) MOVE BITCH!!!!
Talib: How disrespectful! That’s a man’s wife you’re talking to buddy! Kevin standing over Crosby, and now putting the boots to him! Literally kicking him when he’s down!
Stew: Hunter now picking Carter up! Hunter raising Crosby up over his head, and drops him chest first into the guard rail! Carter Draped over the rail, and now Hunter backing up a bit!
Stew: And come lands a running avalanche that sandwiches Crosby between himself and that railing!
Ref: 6! 7!
Stew: Crosby finally making it to his feet! Hunter back in the ring waiting for him! Carsyn and Thadd both rooting Crosby on!
Talib: Carter tryIng to get back to the ring… SUPERMAN!!! KEVIN HUNTER WITH THE SPRINGBOARD 450 SPLASH!!! What a move to the outside crashing down on Crosby Carter!
Stew: And much to your earlier point, Last week just wasn’t his night, but Kevin Hunter looking very impressive! Even after all that punishment he took that dive to the outside is simply incredible! By the looks of things he might get his hand raised in very short order tonight! Hunter now rolling Carter back into the ring! Here’s a cover, leg is hooked!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE! TTTTTWWWWOOOO!
Talib: Carter kicking out, and Kevin now making a mistake In my estimation, as he argues with the ref! Kevin tuning his attention back to his opponent and lands with a knee drop right to the skull! Kevin relentless now as he reaches his feet quickly and follows up with a fist drop!
Stew: Hunter just starts raining down fists to the head! Hunter pouncing away, Crosby reaches out and grabs the ropes, the ref now telling Kevin to get off him! Hunter obliging! Crosby trying to pick himself up with the aid of the ropes, off the far side ropes… SUPERMAN PUNCH! What an incredible move as Kevin connects flush to the face of Crosby Carter! Carter down on his back and looks to be out of it as Kevin covers him!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE! TTTTWWWWWOOO!
Stew: Carter still has some fight In him! Hunter unhappy as he grabs both hands full of Carter’s hair and drags him up off the mat! Crosby fighting back with rights and lefts to the body! Hunter loosing his grasp on those follicles, Crosby connects with the spinning back fist! Kevin seeing stars as Crosby charges at him… IN THE END!!! HUNTER WITH THAT FIREMAN’S CARRY FACEBUSTER! Carter out like a light here before our very eyes!
Talib: Hunter now dragging Crosby up by the head! Hunter lifting him up on his shoulders… KIIIIILLLLLLLEEEEERRRRR EEEEEEFFFFFEEECCCCTTT!!!
Stew: NO! CROSBY TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT!!! Cater with a flurry of elbows to the side of the head, Hunter losing his balance, and Crosby breaks free! Hunter swings with a wild punch, but Carter ducks underneath, SUPERKICK!!! Hunter’s eyes glazed over as Both men collapse to the canvas and the referee begins to count!
Ref: 1! 2! 3!
Stew: Hunter trying to shake off the cobwebs, Crosby almost motionless! Both men putting themselves through so much!
Ref: 3! 4! 5!
Talib: And you gotta wonder what Starr Stan thinks about all this?! Has the onslaught of Kevin Hunter put any doubts into our general manager’s mind about Crosby Carter?!
Stew: Hunter reaching for the ropes!
Talib: Carter starting to stir!
Stew: Kevin on both knees hanging on to the ropes!
Talib: Crosby up to a knee!

Stew: That May have been the last gasp of energy that Carter had left in his body! He and Kevin are both down in the middle of the ring!
(As the ref checks on both men, Thadd and Carsyn both begin to rhythmically beat on the ring apron trying to Will his friend back to his feet! Soon the entire arena is clapping and stomping in time with him)
Stew: Crosby Carter using whatever strength he has left In his body to pick himself up and fight on! Crosby crouched In the corner waiting for Kevin to get back up! Hunter on his feet, Carter Charging at him, Crosby with the running Shiranu! LOOKS GNARLY CONNECTS! Carter up In an instant, he rebounds off the ropes… YOUR UBER HAS ARRIVED!!

( “All I Do Is Win” hits. )
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen here is your winner… CCCCCRRRRRRROOOOOSSSSSBBBBYYYYY CCCCCCCAAAAAARRRRTTTTEEEERRR!!!
Stew: You talk about wanting to make a good impression, this man here made a great one in my book! He took it to the mat! He stood toe to toe! And we all saw that this man can fly! What a phenomenal athlete, and what a phenomenal win!
Talib: I am shocked! It looked like Hunter was In complete control, but someway, somehow, Carter walks away with the win here!
( Crosby stands in the middle of the ring with his hands raised high. To his delight he is joined by his wife Carsyn and scoops her up in his arms to give her a big hug and a kiss. Thadd enters the ring as well with whom he shares an awesome bro hug followed by an exceptional high five.)
Stew: it’s this kind of action that you can only find on Dynasty, so don’t go away we will be right back!
( COMMERCIAL BREAK — including an advertisement for tomorrow’s edition of Saturday Night Showdown, LIVE from Brussels, Belgium for the first time ever! In the main event four of Showdown’s hottest young talent compete in a TABLES, LADDERS AND CHAIRS FATAL FOUR WAY! Witness the defending champion Malcolm Jones go up against Jake Smith, Solomon and Jax Walker just weeks before he enters the King of Elite finals match! Also, Big Mike looks to commence with the wetting of the phallus as he is owed a date with Kassidy Heart! Tune in at 8 PM EST, 7 Central only on USA! )
( We open up to a break room with background chatter audible from the other members of the locker room. It focuses on a vending machine where the new EAW PURE Champion, Ms. Extreme, is located. She is wearing her ring gear, holding the PURE title over her shoulder, and is scanning her card up to the machine. The audience gives a huge ovation at the sight of her appearance. She selects the organic Peanut Butter clif bar, but when the machine winds the metal coil to release the snack it gets stuck in the coil. )
Ms. Extreme: Fucking thing. Oh well PURE Champ’s gotta eat.
( Ms. Extreme scans her card again, and two Peanut Butter clif bars fall out onto the collection bin. She digs into the machine, takes both bars out and rips open the package for one before snacking away. Soon after, Kathy Kush approaches her with a microphone in hand. )
Kathy Kush: Hi Camille! I just wanted to say congratulations on your PURE Title victory!
Ms. Extreme: (chewing on her Clif bar) Aw thanks Kathy!
Kathy: Mind if I just had a quick second of your time?
Ms. Extreme: No problem hun.
Kathy: I know you were really tied up last week after Dynasty so I never got a chance to get your reaction to such a monumental win last week. Not only did you earn your first victory in Elite Answers Wrestling, but your first victory captured not only an opportunity to the King of Elite Finals, but it also brought you the EAW PURE Championship! In your words, how big was last week for you career wise and overall?
Ms. Extreme: It’s bigger than me, truthfully Kathy. If anybody in EAW or – fuck it – the wrestling business in general is ever feeling like they’re stuck in the same place, they’re stagnant, there’s no point in going on, etc… look at me. Look no further than me. They counted me out Kathy, and at some points I even counted myself out. Not every single member of the EAW audience is going to understand this because not everyone has seen my journey, but I dealt with injury problems, family problems, I’ve had people betray me, mislead me, stab me in the back. But baby it is all worth it, I’d go through the same bullshit again if I had to for a moment like last week. It’s proof that anything is possible. (to the fourth wall) If it could happen for me, it damn sure can happen for you.
Kathy: Are we able to get a status update on your sister, Cameron Ella Ava?
Ms. Extreme: Cam’s…Cam. Even when she’s hurt she’s still her. They’re keeping her out, still, because of concussion issues which is scary because in pro-wrestling the more time someone misses from concussions, the more serious it is. Like, if they’re back the next week or two it’s standard but Cam hasn’t let much out about her health so it’s a little concerning. But she had Jamie by her side last week, which really lifted her spirits, and I dedicate my wins all to her. Not only is my win last week dedicated to Cammy but but my victories to come both tonight and in the King of Elite finals.
Kathy: Speaking of which you are moving forward to the semifinals tonight against a very game Jason McKormick.
Ms. Extreme: Always game, Kathy.
Kathy: Certainly. With McKormick fired up what are your observations moving into tonight’s contest against him, knowing what he brings to the table and acknowledging it?
Ms. Extreme: I DMed Jason last week to congratulate him on his win, beating Hades is incredible no matter who you are, that’s a Hall of Famer and an all time great. Jason reminds me a lot of myself, he – like myself – is able to acknowledge what he lacks and knows how to compensate for it. The fact that he’s even this far, or really that we’re both this far, is a real testament to what work ethic will do for you. I look forward to meeting him out there and I know neither of us are gonna hold back.
Kathy: It goes down in the DMs with Jason McKormick?
Ms. Extreme: :mjpls: Wouldn’t you like to know. Bye, Kathy.
( Camille finishes her Cliff bar in peace and walks off screen leaving behind a smiling and laughing Kathy Kush. Kathy turns to the camera. )
Kathy: Alright Michael let’s take it over to you, standing by with Jamie O’Hara.
( TRANSITION: We see a shirtless, banged up Jamie O’Hara standing outside the infirmary with Michael Belfort as he holds a microphone in hand. )
Michael Belfort: Jamie obviously a rough beginning to the evening for you earlier, with you having to face – essentially – a three-on-two ambush from APOCALYPSE, Donovan Cross and Theron Nikolas. How are you physically feeling heading into your match later tonight teaming up with Darkane to face APOCALYPSE and Theron Nikolas?
Jamie O’Hara: Ehh. Doesn’t fucking matter yeah? I’ll take the encumbrance on what happened out there, I overlooked a 7 foot, 400 pound goliath and it cost me in the short term. However I’m prepared for that oversized bloke now and I don’t take second chances too lightly–
( Jamie looks off camera. The camera pans back, and Darkane walks into frame, causing him and Jamie O’Hara to size each other up out of stoic respect. “This Is Awesome” chants can be heard in the background as the audience appreciates seeing two of EAW’s biggest names in the modern era come face to face. )
Darkane: (to Michael) you can go.
( Michael Belfort nods and walks away. )
Darkane: I’m not here to thank you for standing up for me out there when I was getting mugged. I’m also not here to offer an alliance of any kind between you and I.
Jamie: Wasn’t expecting it. Besides, you’ve got your lad Erebus Jennings watching from the shadows. Wish he could have lent us a helping hand.
Darkane: Yeah, well I don’t keep track of Erebus’ whereabouts, because he doesn’t owe me shit, the same way I don’t owe him shit. I’m not on Dynasty to curry favor among fellows or ingratiate myself with any of you. You are not my friends, you are competition.
Darkane: That said, I think we both feel strongly that Theron deserves to have the crap beaten out of him.
Jamie: That we do.
Darkane: And we both feel that APOCALYPSE needs to be brought down to size.
Jamie: He certainly must.
Darkane: Then we’re on the same page. Let’s keep it that way.
Jamie: We’re in agreement there. But don’t take too much of Theron for yourself, I want to send a message before King of Elite. Do away with that false bravado that he’s got carrying around with him.
Darkane: (repressing a smile) Good deal.
( Darkane turns to leave, but then turns back to Jamie and gets in his face. )
Darkane: Oh… and by the way. When you take that Answers World Championship from Theron…. (points to self) First in line. You understand me?
( Jamie lets out a slight grin. )
Jamie: Cheers. It’ll be your funeral.
( Jamie brushes past Darkane and walks off camera, leaving Darkane behind. )
( COMMERCIAL BREAK — featuring an advertisement for this Sunday’s edition of EAW Voltage!

( We get footage showing parts of Berlin, Germany where Friday Night Dynasty promotional posters, billboards and advertisements are on. We see several Dynasty Elitists meeting with fans, interacting with the local media, including Ms. Extreme at an all-girls youth sports convention with Chancellor Merkel as they both carry the EAW PURE Championship and answer questions for media. We then see fans interviewed about their excitement for Dynasty’s visit, talking about (in translated form) who they’re rooting for and what they’re looking to see. )
( Camera opens up to the outside of the Mercedes-Benz arena. )
Stew: It’s been a chilly night in Berlin but the reception has been warm, to say the least.
Talib: The city has waited for this night with bated breath! These Berlin fans want Dynasty action, that much is certain, and more is on the way right now!
( Open up to the arena. )
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
( “Blood//Water” by Grandson begins to play. )
Stephie: Introducing first, from Salem, Massachusetts, weighing in at 185 pounds, THE REAPER… BOOOOOOWWWWWWIIIEEEEE GGGGGRRRRRAAAAAYYYY!!!
( Gray makes his way to the ring to a downpour of jeers. His cold eyes reflect no interest in however the crowd feels about him.)
Stew: Many people would say that Last week Bowie Gray was down right lucky to have walked out away from his match with Ryan Wilson with a victory, Wilson seemingly had the match won, but thanks to the interference of the private security force of Mr. DEDEDE, Bowie walked out with a win!
Talib: Hey let’s not discredit Bowie Gray in that situation, he took on a ton of punishment including both the Game Over and The Fourth Wall Break to walk away with that win! Gray is one of the toughest, most Tenacious competitors here, and a man who’s as hard to put away as Bowie Gray is surely bound for big things here in EAW!
( Gray rolls into the ring under the bottom rope. The music fades and the lights go down whipping the crowd into a frenzy of excitement. “Wanted Man” by Rev Theory hits over the arena speakers.)
Stephie: And his opponent, from Austin, Texas, weighing in at 325 pounds,… HADES THE HELLLLL RRRRRAAAAAIIIIISSSSSSEEEERRRR!!!
( Hades rolls down on his Harley Fatboy. )
Stew: Ladies and gentlemen, there are legends, there are GOATs, there all the all time greats, and then there is this man right here. There aren’t too many individuals more respected and perhaps more feared in the EAW locker room than the hellraiser himself.
Talib: Well I can tell you one man who isn’t afraid of Hades, and that’s the wrestling machine Lucas Johnson! And if you don’t believe me just look at last week when he nearly hobbled the leg of Hades!
Stew: Johnson attacked Hades from behind last week, and cost him a chance at becoming King of Elite this year! You better believe that somewhere down the line that Lucas is gonna be due for some payback with interest!
( Hades enters the ring his gaze never wondering away from Bowie. He waits like a caged lion for his next piece of meat to be delivered as the The referee calls for the bell.)
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: Here we go this one underway! Hades closing in after Gray, Bowie trying to move around and keep away from the big striker! Hades cutting off the ring, and Bowie with a kick kick right to the injured leg! Bowie with another kick, Hades able to check it before it connects, Gray shooting in for the single leg takedown! Bowie trying to take the big man down and take away the height advantage!
Talib: ‘TryIng’ the keyword as Hades is fighting Him off before he can bring him down to the mat! Bowie abandoning the takedown attempt and focusing on those outside leg kicks, a second lands, a third, HADES ANSWERS BACK WITH A HUGE UPPERCUT TO THE CHIN!
Stew: Gray knocked right on his ass from that shot! And now Hades picking him up and landing some measured rights to the head! Hades now with a headbutt that has Bowie backed up into the corner! Hades now opening up with lefts and rights to the ribs! Each hook sending shock waves through his body!

But look Gray reaching back, and catches Hades in the eye! The Hellraiser blinded as Bowie drops down to the floor, Bowie catching Hades by the feet and trips him up!

Ref: 1! 2! 3!
Stew: Hades tossing Bowie like a sack of potatoes back first into the ring post!
Stew: Gray in a heap next to the ring steps as Hades picks him up and slings him over his shoulder! Hades taking a few steps back before charging forward… SNAKE EYES INTO THE RING POST!!! NO! Gray able to slip out! Bowie behind Hades, and now driving him forward, OH AND THAT BAD KNEE JUST GOT SENT INTO THE STEEL STEPS!
Talib: Hades a bit slow to get up, he’s obviously favoring that injured leg, Bowie Gray from behind now! BASEMENT DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE LEG!!!
Talib: Bowie now stomping away! Hades trying to shove him back but Bowie is relentless in his attack!
Talib: Bowie picking up Hades by the hair and driving him head first into the apron! Hades being rolled back In under the bottom rope, Gray following closely behind after him! Hades on his knees as Gray measures and lands a kick to the back! Hades getting back to his feet as Gray attacks with a series of double ax handles to the back! Gray now charging off the ropes, Hades with a clothesline but Bowie ducks under, Gray rebounds… AND HADES WITH THE DISCUS ELBOW SMASH!!! I think I saw a tooth go flying from that one! Hades picking Gray up off the mat, Bowie on dream street as he eats a back elbow! Hades following up with a knee lift to the gut! Hades now with the Irish whip that sends Bowie hard into the corner! Hades working the kinks out of that leg before he sprints forward! Corner Avalanche!
Stew: Misses!! Bowie Gray moving out of the way at the last possible moment there! Hades went chest first into the turnbuckle, that may have knocked all the wind out of his lungs! Gray like a shark that smells blood immediately heading outside! Bowie taking Hades down and propping him up against the the ring post! OH AND GRAY JUST WRAPPED THAT BAD LEG RIGHT AROUND THAT STEEL! Gray relentless as he relentlessly and repeatedly tries to use that post to cripple the leg! Gray finally letting go but the damage looks like it’s already been done! Hades with a pained expression painted on his face as he needs the ropes to even attempt to stand!
Talib: Hey look, Gray back In the ring now, he sprints towards Hades, up the middle turnbuckle… DIAMANTÉ KICK! That springboard dropkick just caught Hades right in the face!
Stew: Hades down as Gray begins to scale the turnbuckle! Bowie up top measuring… 10 FEET DOWN!!! TWISTING SPLASH CONNECTS! AND HADES IN A WORLD OF TROUBLE AS GRAY HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE! TTTTTWWWWWWOOOO! TTTTTHHHHRRRRR-
Stew: HADES ABLE TO SOMEHOW GET THE SHOULDER UP! The fight and the heart inside this man is what has made him everything he is today! Bowie pounding the mat in frustration with that kick out!

Bowie clenching at his throat here, Hades scooping him up, SNAKE EYES! Gray landing head first on the top turnbuckle! Gray stumbling around, Hades with a boot to the mid-section! The Hellraiser rebounding off the far side ropes, and connects with the running DDT! Hades reaching over draping the arm over the chest!

Talib: Bowie just getting the shoulder up! I told you this guy was as tough as they come! Both men back to their feet, Hades gets an arm wringer, Gray really feeling the torque and pressure benign applied by the 325 pound powerhouse! Hades now starting to climb up the turnbuckles, We Seen this before! DEATH FROM ABOVE! HADES COMING DOWN FROM THE TOP WITH THAT OVER HAND CLUB TO THE BACK!
Stew: Hades Landing with that one, but he may have come down wrong on that leg! You see him down grabbing that bad knee! Bowie Gray getting back up, and now with a blatant choke!

( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Wanted Man” by Rev Theory starts to play.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… HADES THE HHHHHEEEEEELLLLLLLLRRRRRRAAAAIIISSSSEEERRR!!!!
Stew: Important win for Hades the Hellraiser this week as he bounces back after getting eliminated from the King of Elite tournam-
(Lights in the arena go out as mysterious supernatural sounds play over the loudspeaker as a single spotlight is focused on a confused Hades in the middle of the ring as a video begins to play on the titantron of Lucas Johnson outside Houston, Texas at a local cemetery as he finishes chugging a bottle of Bud Light and tossing the bottle in the air throwing his trash away…)
Albert Hitchman: (filming behind the camera) We are LIVE, Mr. Johnson the floor is now yours to the entire Dynasty world in Germany!
Lucas Johnson: Good, sorry I was not able to be with the party in Berlin so cheers to Oktoberfest! Yeah we’re a few months late but who cares? The reason I am coming to you from Houston at this famous location is because I have a bone to pick with all you fools watching at home and especially the gatekeeper of Dynasty, Hades. You see I am the poster boy on Friday Nights, everyone is living in my world on Dynasty and I am not getting the respect I deserve! Whether you idiots would like to admit it or not but ever since I signed on the dotted line with Albert Hitchman Enterprises, I have brought more ratings to this entire show then Showdown and Voltage combined! Sponsorships from Nike don’t fall on my lap for no reason, I am a once in a lifetime talent and week after week I bust my ass in that squared circle and I get spit in the face by all the chumps in the locker room!
Albert Hitchman: How about we take a walk through this lovely graveyard as you continue your amazing speech my lovely client?
(You see Albert Hitchman lead the way as Lucas Johnson follows as he has more anger to get off his chest…)
Lucas Johnson: People in this company love to look at the past and bring out the negatives just like Operation Doomsday!
(A photograph briefly comes on the screen of Lucas Johnson and Jack Ripley fighting at the Dynasty exclusive Marquee event for the EAW Pure Championship…)
Johnson: Evidence #1: I came up short at the first Dynasty FPV of Season 12 but people love to focus on the negative part of the match that I didn’t capture the Pure Championship, a title that legends have held in this business like Starr Stan a person who I looked up to!
(Screen shows the next photograph of the Extreme Elimination Chamber for the Answers World Championship at Road to Redemption as he landed on the chainsaw courtesy of Theron Nikolas..)
Johnson: Evidence #2: Road to Redemption, the first time in my career that I stepped inside the devil’s playground and received ten stitches from the Answers World Champion. I may have come up short but I don’t look at that match as a negative, I take it as a step in the right direction. People want criticise me?? Put me down?? How about Theron Nikolas? His testicles shriveled up the moment Jamie O’Hara made his shocking return to EAW! How about Erebus Jennings? Another clown that was downplaying my success here in the land of the elite but recently lost the most important thing in his life – the EAW Pure Championship. You see people have this “thing” they do where they’re so selective about who they despise and who they cheer for! It’s like if I don’t “get over” with all of you, all of my shortcomings are put on front-street while you all get to pretend that your favorites are infallible!
(The final photograph Lucas shows is him landing the Skull Crushing Finale on Hades the Hellraiser and eliminating him first from the Extreme Elimination Chamber…)
Johnson: This is the most important photograph you idiots watching at home should remember the most because the biggest moment coming out of Road to Redemption in Montreal is rarely talked about because Hades got a fluke win by ending my route to the King of Elite crown! Hades the reason I am not in Berlin tonight is because of you! The reason I am not on my way to the King of Elite finals is because of you! The reason I slammed that urn across your skull last week is because you made the worst decision of your life by provoking The Notorious One and ruining his chance in becoming King of EAW. The same urn that ended your dreams in becoming King of Elite again is the same urn in my hands right now with your blood on it!
(Lucas and Hitchman arrive at a special grave labeled – Nathan: Hell’s Guardian…Lucas pauses as he puts the urn on top of the tombstone as he stands back with Albert Hitchman and continues his speech…)
Hitchman: Hell’s Guardian? Oh my God…….. If it isn’t … Hades’ BROTHER?
Johnson: The moment we have all been waiting for! Does this tombstone look familiar?!
(We see Hades the Hellraiser pacing back and forth, enraged, with his face glowing red and unable to be approached by the official with him in the ring. )
Johnson: Nathan Cadaver, the brother of Johnny “Big Bad John” Cadaver known as Hades the Hellraiser.
( Johnson kneels down and begins “knocking” on the tombstone of Hades’ dead brother as if it were a door. )
Johnson: Wakey wakey Natey Natey! Anybody in there? I have to admit Nathan growing up watching Hades on television I was like all the puppets at home and I was fearful of the legend known as The Gatekeeper. I looked up to him but I step inside the ring with him and he is nothing more than a little bitch!
Hades: (no mic) I SWEAR TO GOD LUCAS, YOUR ASS IS MINE! YOU HEAR ME?!?!
Johnson: Mannnn I wouldn’t wanna be you right now Hades. It’s a real shame you can’t talk to your brother with me, I’m sure the three of us would have one hell of a chat! Hold on a minute I (looks around) don’t think there’s a bathroom anywhere around here….
( Albert Hitchman backs away as we see Lucas Johnson look around to see no one else at the local cemetery. )
Johnson: Ah screw it.
( Lucas Johnson pulls down his pants, revealing his boxers, and turns his back to the camera to begin urinating all over the grave of Hades the Hellraiser’s brother. Once he finishes, he pulls his pants back up, tightens his belt, picks up the urn and turns back to the camera with a smile. )
Lucas Johnson: Actions speak louder than words my friends and that is only the beginning of what I am going to do to Hades the Hellraiser. Hades you think you were the master of mind games? I don’t think so! It’s a new era Hades, you had your time in the sun, but it’s been five years Hades, your legacy is on its deathbed! But I want to responsible for killing the legend and turning Hades the Hellraiser into a myth! And mark my words… I will.
( Lucas and Albert walk away from the site, and the camera gives one final look at the piss-soaked grave of Nathan Cadaver, before the camera eventually fades to commercial. )
( COMMERCIAL BREAK — Including an advertisement for next Thursday’s Empire! Unified Women’s World Champion Madison Kaline shows us her keys to victory, and the fearless Layla Lockhart challenges the Queen of Death in the main event with Women’s Title hopeful Sienna Jade on commentary! It all takes place at 8PM, 7 Central EXCCCCCCCCCLLLLUSIVELY on Fox! )
( Camera opens up to Starr Stan’s office, where Starr is sitting at his desk and Malik Kennedy is in a button down flannel and jeans, sitting across from Starr’s desk. )
Starr Stan: I really fought hard to get you here on Dynasty to be honest. Fending off Hawk was the easy part, and he’s stubborn as all hell, but Daniels was pretty much dead set on getting you from the time your contract got around to the three of us.
Malik Kennedy: Believe me, nobody is harder on me than myself. I know you’ve done what you could to accomodate me here and I really appreciate it, it just hasn’t been clicking for me against my last two opponents and I take full ownership of that.
Starr: Hey I get it trust me. Believe me by no means are you in the doghouse, as a matter of fact I’ve seen guys start their careers with a lot less luck than you and end up becoming some of the greatest stars EAW has ever seen. But in your contract obviously one of the perks that have been included is a guaranteed New Breed Championship match….but I’m just afraid I’m not going to be able to pencil you in to the title shot any time soon until I know you can change your trajectory a little bit.
Malik: I get it. The New Breed Title is an opportunity for Dynasty and I want to represent this brand well, I don’t want to bring disappointment or dishonor to the show.
Starr: You seem like a great guy, I know you wouldn’t dishonor Dynasty, but I’m glad you understand I need to reward opportunities —
( A door can be heard opening, and Starr stands up with a smile on his face. )
Starr: Speaking of which… hey guys!
( Crosby Carter, his wife Carsyn, and Thadd Blazevich are all smiles as they enter the office and shake hands with Starr. )
Thadd Blazevich: Stan the Man with a Plan! You catch this stud out there or what?!
Starr: I saw, Crosby you delivered an exceptional performance against a very game Kevin Hunter. A former champion, no less. Needless to say – if you’re still interested of course – the offer for an official Friday Night Dynasty contract is waiting for your signature.
Crosby Carter: Aw sweet dude, thank you brother I won’t let this opportunity go to waste.
Starr: Hey speaking of which, let me run something by the both of you. At King of Elite Dynasty is going to get a chance to participate in the New Breed Championship match as it’ll be a fatal four way, with Raven Roberts defending against Showdown and Voltage’s candidates for that title along with ours. I would formally like to “throw you a lob” as you kids say and have one of you gentlemen participate in it.
Thadd: Bro! No lies dude????
Starr: Well you’ve both really impressed me and I figured you could decide amongst yourselves which one of you goes into the KOE New Breed Title match, so whenever you two come to an agreement I’ll be happy to insert one of you into the match.
Thadd: CROS’! THAT’S ALL YOU KIDDDDD!
Crosby: No way, that New Breed Title has Thadd2Badd written all over it.
Thadd: Seriously though Starr, you da man bro. That’s why we love you! That’s why we’re team Starr!
Carsyn Carter: #TeamStarr
Thadd: Give me a bro hug!
( Starr laughs while Malik Kennedy sits there resigned. He gives Thadd a quick side hug and Thadd, Carsyn and Crosby talk amongst themselves regarding the New Breed Title opportunity as they all exit. Starr dusts himself off and sits down. )
Starr: Sorry about that, those crazy kids come and go as they please you know. They sure are talented though.
Malik: Yeah, they are talented. They deserve the opportunity… stings to see them get it over me, but I understand it. I don’t want a single inch on Friday Night Dynasty unless I’ve earned it.
Starr: Well I’m going to give you a chance to do just that, I’m working out the details but I want to give you an opponent that is also looking to make an impact. I’ve been sorting certain things out with him contractually but I want to make sure you go into this when you feel like you’re ready.
Malik: No problem at all. Who do you have in mind?
???: Funny you should ask.
( Entering the room: Mark Michaels. The surprised audience can be heard reacting in the background, and Mark stands over Malik. )
Mark Michaels: After all it’s only the man who’s been shafted more by Elite Answers Wrestling, Incorporated than any other person walking God’s green earth today.
( Malik stands up and backs away. )
Malik: Alright Starr, sounds good then. I’ll be letting myself out.
Mark: So this is the chump you’re supposed to be feeding me on my big return? This is what Mark Michaels deserves? Some tomato can wet behind the ears, never-was indy darling?
Malik: Excuse me?
Mark: (dismissively) You’re excused. (to Starr) Starr, you know as well as I know that I deser-
Starr: You deserve better, yeah I get it, you’ve said it a million times. Look there’s no need to throw around insults, I’m still working things out and I’m giving you a credible opponent.
Malik: Yeah, you heard the man, no need to throw around insults. Especially towards people who are better than you.
( The room gets silent. Mark Michaels turns around and comes nose to nose with Malik Kennedy. )
Mark: Excuse me?
( Starr gets in between them. )
Starr: Guys, not here. Not tonight.
Mark: Stanley, you’ve remembered to air the video package I had my personal production team put together, am I correct?
Starr: *sigh* It’ll be airing tonight. Not sure if the highers ups are going to like it, but–
Mark: I don’t give. A rat’s ass. About who likes it.
( Starr rolls his eyes. )
Mark: I’ll be in my tour bus, which Dynasty is paying for, if you need me. And tell the kid to fix his attitude, before I fix it for him.
( Mark walks off, leaving Malik Kennedy and Starr Stan behind as they both watch him leave and shake their heads. )
( RETURN TO THE RING: Stephie Love is standing front and center dressed in a comfy wool sweater, fashion nova jeans and a cashmere silk scarf as well as a beanie on her head that reads “Friday Night Fights.” She has a microphone in hand and wears a big smile on her face, ready to call the following match. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stephie Love: The following is a KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT SEMI-FINALS CONTEST SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!! The winner of this bout will move on to represent the Dynasty brand in the 2019 KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT FINALS!
( “Gangsta” by New Years Day plays, evoking a massive response particularly from the females in the crowd as Ms. Extreme walks out to the stage with the EAW PURE Championship hanging over her shoulder. She scans the audience with her eyes, and continues her confident strut down to the ring shortly after. )
Stephie Love: Introducing first, residing in Calabasas, California, she is the EAW PUUUUREEE CHAMPIOOONNNNNN!!!! MSSSSSSSSSSS EEXXXXTREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEMEEEEEE!!!!
Talib: The past 30 days for this young lady has been, by her account, the biggest period of her entire career! From aiding her sister in victory over their arch nemesis Mr. DEDEDE at Road to Redemption, to being cleared to compete for the first time since October, to filling in for her injured sister and becoming EAW PURE Champion… Soulja Boy may have had the best comeback of 2018, but Ms. Extreme has got 2019 on lock! And the rollercoaster ride is still far from over!
Stew: It’s been an incredible journey for Camille Jane Ava. Season 12 has hit the entire Ava family incredibly hard and the highs have been as astronomical as the lows, but for Camille right now is about leaving the turbulence of the past behind her and focusing on the future and clinching her ticket to the King of Elite finals.
Talib: If this fiery chick is who we have to depend on to bring the crown home to Friday Night Dynasty… I can honestly say, I think I like those odds a whole lot, Stew.
( “I Want It All” by Queen hits, prompting a big positive response from the audience as Jason McKormick walks out to the stage dressed to compete, flanked by Ryan Wilson and Shaker Jones. )
Stephie Love: Her opponent… accompanied by THE SCORE; from Jackson, Michigan weighing 230 POUNDS!!!! JAASSSOOOOOOOOOOON MCCOOOORMMIIIIIIIICCCKKKK!!!!
Stew: I had Jason McKormick as the biggest underdog going into the entire tournament, and for him to make it this far just speaks volumes about how truly underrated this young man’s talent has been this season. People are finally beginning to take notice not only of McKormick but of all three of these men, and– oh wait a minute!
( The DDD Task Force emerges from the audience just as The Score all make it to ringside. The leader of the task force engages the rest of his crew in a standoff with The Score, and the Task Force leader allows only McKormick to enter the ring. )
Talib: Mr. DEDEDE’s personally employed Task Force makes their arrival! And I did a little bit of digging in regards to last week’s foul play during the Ryan Wilson match… get this, BECAUSE the DDD Task Force is considered “sanctioned security & safety personnel” they are basically considered “above the EAW rulebook”, similar to an EAW referee! Long story short, every action these people take is considered permissible within the EAW rules and guidelines, until further review from our chairman!
Stew: So meaning the DDD Task Force can stomp the living daylights out of Jason McKormick and they won’t get so much as a referee call??? That is just bogus! Where did you find this information anyways Bari?
Talib: Does it really matter? Jason had better not piss off the DDD Task Force, because as long as they’re here and at ringside his KOE aspirations are basically at their mercy!
Stew: Meaning Mr. DEDEDE’s mercy… great….
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: McKormick attempting to put all distractions by the wayside as The Score and the DDD Task Force look on from ringside. Ms. Extreme looks fired up, ready to go, as she slaps hands with McKormick and circle the ring before engaging in a collar & elbow traditional wrestling tie up. McKormick overtakes control rather quickly, applying a snug headlock and taking Extreme to the ground with a headlock takedown. Extreme from the ground applies a headscissors and wrenches the neck of McKormick, prompting McKormick to burst up to his feet and escape the headscissors. The two scramble up, Extreme ducks a swipe by McKormick and stacks him onto his shoulders for a roll up! But as the ref slides to the mat Extreme opts to hook both legs of McKormick instead looking perhaps to turn him over for a BOSTON CRAB! Not so fast, McKormick uses his leg strength to knock Camille back, blitzes up to his feet and charges at her with a running knee to the midsection! Now he takes her by the wrist and sends her across the ring…
Talib: He chases her across the ring as well! But Extreme slings her body through the ropes, ends up on the apron and catches an oncoming McKormick right in the midsection with a shoulder! McKormick draped over the middle ropes, Extreme backs up on the apron and runs right towards him only to SHOOT HER BODY THROUGH THE ROPES AND DELIVER A TIGER FEINT KICK, FROM THE APRON, TO THE BACK OF MCKORMICK’S HEAD! McKormick drops to his back and rolls over slightly and Extreme perches herself up to the middle turnbuckle and delivers a DIVING ELBOW DROP FROM THE MIDDLE ROPE! RIGHT TO THE CHEST! And there’s a cover, hook of the leg!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWW-
Stew: McKormick very much still in this! That was some quick, impressive offense from Ms. Extreme, and she grabs McKormick by the waist from behind and is clinging to him while he recovers himself… just to bring him UP AND OVER WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! And a big pop from this crowd as that was the first German suplex delivered this evening! Extreme attempting to roll through it, using as much energy as she has to hoist up her larger, more muscular opponent and send him over with a SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX!!! But McKormick shifts his weight and is able to counter in midair with a hip toss! Extreme hits the desk, they both recover, and MCKORMICK EXPLODES WITH A HIGH KNEE! Sidestepped by Camille, she rebounds off the perpendicular ropes and comes right back only to be FLOORED WITH A CORKSCREW EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! McKormick feeling the effects of that German suplex from earlier, but does his best to shake it off as he drags Ms. Extreme near a set of ropes, and delivers a rope-assisted knee drop straight to the face! This causes Extreme to roll over holding the bridge of her nose… McKormick right back on the offense, as he goes over to Ms. Extreme who’s sitting up and he presses the knee to her spine and yanks both arms back looking for a modified surfboard stretch from the sitting position!
Talib: McKormick delivering a number of crosses over the face as well, bringing Camille down to lay on her face, and now McKormick bends both arms behind her back and is standing on both of her wrists… AND DELIVERS A UNIQUE CAMEL CLUTCH, REARING HER HEAD BACK WHILE STANDING ON HER BACK!
Stew: Jason McKormick truly marches to the beat of his own drum, he can pull out moves that not only you haven’t seen before, but – in all probability – he himself hasn’t even tried before! He will do whatever it takes to assure himself the victory, and his resourcefulness is what makes him dangerous in that squared circle! Ms. Extreme is attempting to escape that, she’s managed to free up and arm and is certainly being put through the ringer with that unique submission hold! McKormick crouches over to get a better grip of that modified standing camel clutch, by EXTREME DELIVERS A THUMB TO THE EYE! A momentary wounded McKormick falls off of his opponent, and Extreme desperately crawls over to the ropes and is looking to gain some leverage! Ryan Wilson in particular wasn’t a fan of that, he’s trying to have a word with the official….. but two members of the DDD Task Force approach him, prompting Shaker Jones to stand by his side and engage in a verbal back and forth with the Task Force.
Talib: Well if I’m Wilson I’m keeping my freaking mouth shut tonight, because I don’t need to instigate the Task Force or give them any probable cause to label me a “disruption”, but that’s just me bruh.
Stew: McKormick meets a LOW SUPERKICK! More like a thrust kick to the midsection from Ms. Extreme! She delivers a kick to the chest of a doubled over McKormick! Shoot kick to the legs! McKormick fires back with a DISCUS CLOTHESLINE! Extreme combat rolls under it, and delivers a HANDSTAND HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN INTO A PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO-
Stew: McKormick not only kicks out but he immediately assumes ankle control, forces Extreme onto her stomach and is attempting that same modified standing camel clutch from before! But Extreme isn’t going to fall for that this time! She perches herself up with her arms and is fighting out of it to the best of her abilities! McKormick is fighting for control and has her in the wheelbarrow position, and MS. EXTREME COUNTERS OUT OF THAT WITH A WHEELBARROW BULLDOG, PLANTING MCKORMICK INTO THE MAT! MS. EXTREME SPRINGS OVER THE ROPES NOW, WAITS FOR MCKORMICK TO RECOVER, AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES FOR DIVING SPRINGBOARD ARMDRAG!!! NO!!! MCKORMICK EXPLODES FROM OUT OF NOWHERE AND DELIVERS A DROPKICK INTO THE ROPES, SENDING CAMILLE DROPPING FROM THE ROPES, FACE SMACKING AGAINST THE APRON, AND CRASHING DOWN TO RINGSIDE WITH A THUD!
( The official exits the ring concerned for Ms. Extreme’s health, and McKormick is sitting in the ring sucking wind attempting to collect himself. )
Talib: That was a BRILLIANT, TIMELY counter for McKormick! Exactly what he needed, just when he needed it! Ms. Extreme took a really rough fall there, the crowd as well as the official are concerned by that, and McKormick sluggishly rolls out of the ring in order to regain some stamina and get some air in his lungs. Ms. Extreme is on all fours at ringside, favoring her jaw with appears to have taken the brunt of the fall as it was knocked against that apron. Extreme has some blood trickling from the mouth, the official is simping it up and asking her if she’s okay instead of counting her out like a good referee should, and now Jason McKormick is back on the offense as he pulls the PURE Champion up from the floor… and sends her ACROSS RINGSIDE BY THE NAPE OF THE NECK, AND CRASHING AGAINST THE BARRICADE WITH AUTHORITY!!!!
( Four members of the DDD Task Force close in unbeknownst to McKormick. )
Stew: The official heads back into the ring and is getting ready to start up his count! Meanwhile McKormick is pacing back and forth, knowing he’s got momentum on his side and seeking to cling onto it! AND HE DOES IT THE ONLY WAY HE KNOWS HOW, STOMPING REPEATEDLY INTO THE DOWNED BODY OF THE EAW PURE CHAMPION! McKormick putting the boots to Ms. Extreme, firing off with ferocious blows, fearsome stomps! One hell of an onslaught! HEY WAIT A MINUTE!!!
( The DDD Task Force members all lunge for McKormick, ripping him away from Ms. Extreme, and one member of the Task Force blatantly attempts to choke out McKormick. )
Talib: SHAKER JONES AND RYAN WILSON UNLOAD ON THE FOUR TASK FORCE MEMBERS WITH PUNCHES! MCKORMICK FIGHTING THEM OFF AS WELL!!! THE SCORE AND THE DDD TASK FORCE COMING TO BLOWS HERE AT RINGSIDE!!!
Stew: BUT THE REMAINING THREE OTHER TASK FORCE MEMBERS NOT INVOLVED FORCIBLY RESTRAIN MCKORMICK, INCLUDING THE LEADER OF THE TASK FORCE HIMSELF! THEY ARE DRAGGING HIM TO ANOTHER SECTION OF RINGSIDE, AND ARE ATTEMPTING TO HANDCUFF HIM! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?! WHAT THE HELL MAKES THEM THINK ANY OF THIS IS OKAY?!
Talib: EVERY MOVE THEY MAKE IS A DIRECT ACTION OF THE BOSS, STEW! YOU AREN’T GOING TO BE ABLE TO REASON WITH THEM, MR. DEDEDE IS IN THEIR EAR, AND TO GET THROUGH TO THEM YOU’D HAVE TO GET THROUGH TO HIM – WHEREVER HE IS! BUT LOOK AT THIS, MCKORMICK DELIVERS A HEADBUTT ON THE TASK FORCE LEADER, ELBOW TO THE TASK FORCE MEMBER ON THE SIDE, AND A HAYMAKER TO THE REMAINING AGENT! McKormick climbs up to our announce table now… AND RUNS ACROSS OUR TABLE, AND ACROSS THE GERMAN ANNOUNCE TABLE…. AND LEAPS ON TO THE OTHER FOUR TASK FORCE MEMBERS THAT ARE OVERWHELMING SHAKER JONES AND RYAN WILSON, TAKING THEM DOWN! McKormick looks around ringside, searching for Ms. Extreme — LOOK OUT!!!
Stew: MS. EXTREME CRASHES INTO MCKORMICK WITH A SUICIDE DIVE, SENDING THEM BOTH SMACKING AGAINST THE BARRICADE AND WIPING OUT!!! Camille Ava, during the brawl managed to return to the ring and she takes advantage of the first opening she can find!
Talib: I think the two of them may have actually conked heads on Camille’s way down, Stew!
Stew: And slammed viciously into the barricades, so hard that the first row of fans basically had to jump back! The referee begins his count yet again!
Ref: 1! 2! 3! 4!
( Ms. Extreme begins to stir, and works faithfully at regaining a vertical base. Meanwhile we see members of the DDD Task Force recovering, and Shaker Jones holding one of his shoulders that may potentially have been dislocated while Ryan Wilson is tending to his partner. )
Ref: 5! 6!
( Extreme is back up, and she grabs the angel haired locks of Jason McKormick to take the match back into the ring. )
Ref: 7! 8!
Talib: Ms. Extreme slings McKormick underneath the ropes and back into the ring, and she slides back in herself as McKormick, almost instinctively, is back up to his feet… NOW EXTREME LOOKING FOR A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!! DELIVERS! I DON’T KNOW HOW THE HELL SHE MANAGED TO HIT THAT MOVE SO EFFECTIVELY! IMMA ASSUME IT’S THAT BIG TITTY STRENGTH! AND SHE’S EVEN HOLDING IN THE PAIN, GOOD LAWD!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: McKormick with the shoulder up! Ms. Extreme bangs her fist into the canvas, she may have expended too much energy on that suplex, it’s written all over her body language Bari — she doesn’t have much left! Camille does her all to drag McKormick up from the canvas — and McKormick shifts his weight appropriately and takes her back down to the mat with a small package pin!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: DESPERATE KICKOUT FROM AVA! The two scramble back up to their feet, charge back at each other, DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!!!! THEY BOTH ROCKED EACH OTHER, BUT MCKORMICK WON IN THAT EXCHANGE, HE GOT MORE OF HIS CLOTHESLINE THAN MS. EXTREME DID, AS HE’S DOWN TO ONE KNEE DROOLING FROM HIS BLOODY MOUTH! McKormick very much dazed, but he’s in a better shape right now than Ms. Extreme…. WAIT A SECOND, THE LEADER OF THE DDD TASK FORCE IS UP ON THE APRON, AND ATTEMPTING TO INTERJECT! OH!!!!!!!! MCKORMICK BLASTS HIM OVER THE FACE WITH “THE LEGACY”!!!! SUPERKICK KNOCKS THE TASK FORCE LEADER OFF THE APRON, AND SENDS HIM CRASHING DOWN TO RINGSIDE RIGHT ON HIS NECK!!! HOLY HELL!!!
Talib: THAT MIGHT HAVE KILLED HIM! LOOK AT THAT LANDING?! JESUS MARY AND JOSEPH!
Stew: MORE TASK FORCE MEMBERS ENTERING THE RING, AND THE OFFICIAL ATTEMPTING TO RESTRAIN THEM! THE REF SLIDES OUT OF THE RING AND IS TAKING MATTERS INTO HIS OWN HANDS, ATTEMPTING TO EJECT THE DDD TASK FORCE FROM RINGSIDE!
( Ryan Wilson and an injured Shaker Jones rush in and come to blows with the DDD Task Force, and the official is surrounded with men brawling and is completely distracted. )
Stew: PANDEMONIUM ENSUES, AND ENRAPTURED THE OFFICIAL! THIS HAS GOTTEN WAY OUT OF CONTROL!
( Dynasty General Manger Starr Stan as on the stage, and he is sending down a team of referees to separate the violence between The Score and the DDD Task Force. )
Stew: WAIT A MINUTE LOOK WHO’S COMING OUT FROM UNDER THE RING!
Talib: DEVAN DUBIAN!!! DEVAN DUBIAN IS HERE!!! AND HE PLANTS JASON MCKORMICK WITH BLEEDING EDGE!!!! NOW HE TURNS TO MS. EXTREME AS SHE’S BARELY ABLE TO STAND… BLEEDING EDGE TO MS. EXTREME!!!
Stew: AND DEVAN DUBIAN DRAGS JASON MCKORMICK BY THE ARM, LAYING HIM OVER THE CHEST OF MS. EXTREME! THE VINDICTIVENESS OF DEVAN DUBIAN STRIKES AGAIN, AND HE DIPS OUT OF THE RING RIGHT BEFORE THE OFFICIAL MAKES HIS RETURN! YOU GOTTA FIGURE THIS IS OVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “I Want It All” by Queen picks back up. )
Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND ADVANCING INTO THE KING OF ELITE FINALS… JASOOOOONNNN MCCKOORRRMIIIICCCK!!!!
Stew: Controversy! Controversy! And more controversy! So many moving parts of this match, and I don’t know about you but there is no way McKormick is going to leave satisfied about this victory!
Talib: Maybe not Stew, but if I were McKormick I’d take it! This is the opportunity of a LIFETIME for that young man! Are you kidding me??? He has defeated THREE former champions in the last three weeks to get to where hs is right now, and he is one win away from being able to make every one of his dreams come true! You wanna change the system kid?! You gotta beat the system! Ain’t no way to beat the system quite like becoming KING of the whole damned system!
( The Score back up on the ramp with Wilson and Shaker Jones helping McKormick stand. An angry Starr Stan is on the stage fuming at what he just saw. )
Talib: OH COME ON! DUB IS BACK IN THE RING NOW, AND HE HAS A STEEL CHAIR! COME ON DEVAN DON’T DO THIS!
Stew: DEVAN DUBIAN STALKING MS. EXTREME WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR IN HAND, AND THE DDD TASK FORCE ISN’T EVEN BOTHERING TO DO A DAMNED THING ABOUT IT! THE SOLE PEOPLE DYNASTY HAS TO DEPEND ON TO UPHOLD SAFETY AND SECURITY ARE GOING TO SIT IDLY BY AND WATCH AN ASSAULT, AND THE TEAM OF REFEREES ARE SHOWING MORE BRAVERY AND MORE GUMPTON, ALL ON THE APRON ASKING DEVAN TO STOP THIS.
( Ms. Extreme rises to her feet, and Devan Dubian cocks back the steel chair…. )
Talib: LOW BLOW!!!!!!! LOW BLOW!!!! MS. EXTREME TURNS AROUND, DUCKS UNDER THE CHAIR SHOT BY DROPPING TO HER KNEES AND STIFFING HIM RIGHT IN THE GROIN!!!
Stew: SERVES YOU RIGHT!!!!
Talib: MS. EXTREME GRABS THE STEEL CHAIR, AND THIS ENTIRE PLACE IS LOSING IT! A SCOWLING MS. EXTREME WATCHES DEVAN RECOVER LIKE A HAWK!!! AND BLASTS HIM OVER THE SHOULDER WITH A CHAIR SHOT!!!!

Stew: MS. EXTREME IS NOT FINISHED, SHE IS GOING TO LIVE UP TO HER NAME ON THIS NIGHT, TAKING THE CHAIR WITH HER AND FOLLOWING DEVAN DUBIAN OUT OF THE RING! DEVAN JUST TRYING TO FIND SOME REPRIEVE, BUT WHEN YOU TRIFLE WITH MS. EXTREME “MERCY” IS NO BETTER THAN AN ABSTRACT CONSTRUCT!!!!
Talib: OH GOD!!! MS. EXTREME TUCKS DEVAN DUBIAN’S HEAD IN BETWEEN THE FOLDS OF THE STEEL CHAIR……. AND HAS HER SIGHTS SET ON THE RING POST!!!!
( Starr looks on from a distance, not particularly pleased, but not in a rush to stop what is about to transpire. )
Talib: LOOK OUT LOOK OUT LOOK OUT!!! BOWIE GRAY!!! BOWIE GRAY LEAPS OVER THE BARRICADE FROM BEHIND MS. EXTREME!!! AND SWINGS FULL FORCE INTO THE SPINE OF CAMILLE WITH A BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT!!!! WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?!?!
Stew: BOWIE GRAY HAS JUST INEXPLICABLY ATTACKED MS. EXTREME! WHAT IN THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE’S GOING?!
( Ms. Extreme drops to the floor with her body crumpled up in a world of pain. )
Talib: BOWIE GRAY TURNS CAMILLE OVER ONTO HER BACK…….. HE’S HOLDING THE BARBED WIRE BAT AT BOTH ENDS, AND IS PRESSING IT AGAINST THE THROAT OF CAMILLE AVA!!!!!! OH JESUS CHRIST HE IS STRANGLING HER TO DEATH WITH A BARBED WIRE BAT!!! LOOK AT HIS EYES!!! THOSE SICK DISGUSTING EYES!!! HE WANTS TO WATCH HER DIE RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM!!!
( Camille is moving all of her limbs violently while choking nearly to death with a Barbed Wire bat pressed against her throat. Once Camille can no longer put up a fight, Bowie relents, and Starr Stan rushes over to her prompting Bowie to toss his bat to the side and help his comrade, Devan Dubian, out of the folds of the chair and back up to his feet. )
Stew: Just a vicious, uncouth assault from Bowie Gray… Not only does Camille Ava have Devan Dubian to worry about as an enemy, but now Devan Dubian has aligned himself with this sadistic psychopath lurking from behind.
( FINAL COMMERCIAL BREAK — including an advertisement for EAW King of Elite! The quad-branded spectacle taking place LIVE from Johannesburg, South Africa! Witness the Answers World Champion and self professed “God Emperor”, Theron Nikolas defend his championship against the returning Ace of Elite Answers Wrestling, Jamie O’Hara in what will go down as a career defining match for both Elitists! It takes place Saturday, February 2nd, only on the EAW Network! )
( Recap airs of the chaotic events that took place before the break, including The Score brawling with the DDD Task Force, and Devan Dubian interfering in the McKormick/Ms. Extreme match to screw Ms. Extreme out of the contest. We see Devan attempt to follow up his shenanigans with a further assault using a steel chair, but Ms. Extreme managed to momentarily turn the tables on him with a low blow and an assault with the steel chair. Starr Stan would look on as Ms. Extreme came inches away from ending Devan Dubian’s career, however Bowie Gray would assault Ms. Extreme from behind with a barbed wire baseball bat and strangle her, nearly to death, using the object. )
( Return to the arena, where the fans are waiting for the main event of the evening. )

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: What a main event we have here on Dynasty. A monumental clash as Darkane and Jamie O’Hara take on the Answers World Champion, Theron Nikolas and the monstrous Apocalypse. Theron seems to starting for his turn and Jamie and Darkane debate who will start for them and it seems they have decided on Darkane. Darkane turns to Theron Nikolas, the very man who took the Answers World Championship from him and member of the One Percent who put him out of action for nearly 2 months. Darkane looks at him with pure disdain… AND HE CHARGES AT HIM WITH A CLOTHESLINE!
Talib: Darkane turns around to find Theron who slides in behind him. Theron throws a right punch… BUT DARKANE CATCHES IT! NOW HE DELIVERS A STERN HEADBUTT TO THERON! DARKANE NOW AGGRESSIVELY ROCKS THERON WITH A ELBOW SMASH! HE KNEES HIM IN THE MIDSECTION AND NOW LEADS HIM TO THE CORNER! He grabs Theron by the head and smashes it repeatedly into the turnbuckle! He now lifts Theron onto his shoulders and throws him down again for snake eyes! Theron skull bounces off the turnbuckle as he stumbles right into Darkane once more!
Stew: HE GRABS THERON FROM BEHIND AND SENDS HIM FLYING TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! Theron struggles to pull himself up as he gets to one knee. He looks up and sees Darkane standing over him. DARKANE LIFTS HIM UP AND BRINGS HIM DOWN FOR A GUT BUSTER! Darkane picks up Theron and places him on his shoulder… HE RUNS AND DELIVERS A POWER SLAM RIGHT INTO THE RING! He now throws him into his corner where he charges and delivers a clothesline! HE NOW GRABS THERON BY THE ARM AND PULLS HIM IN WHERE HE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE! Darkane now opts to tag in Jamie O’Hara to give him a piece of the action!
Talib: Theron Nikolas is in deep trouble here. He’s wronged each of these men multiple times and they’re both enjoying the chance to deliver some pay back. He picks up Theron and connects with a spinning back hand! Theron is reeling… BICYCLE KNEE! JAMIE IS UNLOADING WITH A VARIETY OF OFFENSE HERE! HE STEPS BACK AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING DROP KICK TO THE CHEST! THERON FALLS INTO THE CORNER! JAMIE QUICKLY GETS UP AFTER HITTING THE DROP KICK… SUPER KICK BY THERON! THERON MUSTERS UP THE ENERGY TO HIT A SUPERKICK OUT OF NOWHERE AND HE COLLAPSES RIGHT AFTER! HE NOW CRAWLS TO HIS CORNER AS HE WANTS NO PART OF THIS! HE TAGS IN APOCALYPSE!
Stew: Jamie is recovering from that superkick and the menacing Apocalypse is now looming over him. Jamie quickly jumps up and delivers a jumping heel kick… AND APOCALYPSE SEEMS BARELY PHASED! HE NOW GRABS JAMIE AND PULLS HIM IN… AND JAMIE O’HARA GOES FLYING ACROSS THE RING WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! APOCALYPSE NOW DEAD LIFTS JAMIE OFF THE GROUND AND LIFTS HIM ABOVE HIS HEAD AND HOISTS HIM ABOVE AS HIGH AS HIS ARMS WILL GO! HE NOW DROPS JAMIE AS HE FALLS STRAIGHT TO THE GROUND!

He grabs him and throws him back in the ring… DEVIL MAY CRY! DARKANE DROPS OFF THE APRON AND DELIVERS A SPEAR TO THE SPINE OF APOCALYPSE!
Stew: DARKANE, WHO MADE HIS RETURN LAST WEEK TO AID HIS PARTNER EREBUS JENNINGS AGAINST APOCALYPSE HAS NOW PUT HIM DOWN! Darkane pushes Apocalypse into the ring! JAMIE IS WAITING ON THE TOP ROPE! HE WAS PREPARED! HE LEAPS… GENKI CANNON! BUT APOCALYPSE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! HE BEGINS TO GET UP BUT JAMIE DELIVERS A SUPER KICK RIGHT TO HIS SKULL! BUT HE’S STILL MANAGING TO GET UP! HE GRABS APOCALYPSE… MY GOD! HE’S TRYING TO LIFT HIM… GERMAN SUPLEX! JAMIE O’HARA MANAGES TO PULL IT OFF AND NOW TAGS IN DARKANE!

Apocalypse is getting to his knees… AND JAMIE DELIVERS A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD… BUT HE DUCKS! JAMIE TURNS AROUND AND GRABS JAMIE BY THE THROAT WHILE STILL ON HIS KNEES! HE STANDS UP AND JAMIE IS IN TROUBLE! JAMIE KICKS APOCALYPSE IN THE GUT! HE THROWS PUNCHES AT HIS ARM AND STRUGGLES TO BREAK FREE! ENZUIGIRI! JAMIE HITS AN ENZUIGIRI!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stephie Love: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS BY DISQUALIFICATION… DARKANEEEE AND JAMIE O’HARAAA!
Talib: DARKANE AND JAMIE WIN BUT APOCALYPSE DOESN’T CARE THAT THE MATCH IS OVER! HE APPROACHES DARKANE AND THROWS HIM INTO THE RING!

Stew: WHAT A CRAZY TURN OF EVENTS! Apocalypse decided to use the steel steps on Darkane which Disqualified him and Theron. Donovan Cross then joined them in a 3 on 2 attack on Jamie O’Hara and Darkane. But before things got worse, Erebus Jennings who has been a target by Apocalypse, Donovan Cross, and Soothsayer Hamasa for weeks came in to turn the tables.
Talib: If those three had been allowed to keep going, there’s no telling what kind of damage they may have inflicted upon Jamie and Darkane. What a crazy main event here on Dynasty and what a show it’s been. Darkane, Erebus Jennings, and Jamie O’Hara prove triumphant here tonight on Dynasty!
(Darkane, Erebus Jennings, and Jamie O’Hara are showed standing triumphantly in the ring as the crowd cheers.)
Stew: King of Elite continues to draw closer! We’ll see you all again next wee–
???? (in the broadcast background): YOU INCOMPETENT MOTHER FUCKERS!!!
( Camera abruptly switches to the outside of the EAW production truck, and switches inside it where Mark Michaels is seen tossing around equipment. )
Mark Michaels: EAW THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO PULL THE WOOL OVER MY EYES THIS TIME DIDN’T IT?!
Program manager: Mark we’re going to have to ask you to–
( Mark Michaels grabs the program manager by his collar, and shoves him over a mixing board, completely disorienting the feed of the broadcast. )
Mark: EAW DOESN’T GET TO DO THIS TO ME ANYMORE!!! THIS IS EXACTLY WHY THIS COMPANY DESERVED TO DIE, IT SHOULD HAVE DIED MARCH OF LAST YEAR, AND IF YOU PEOPLE KEEP FUCKING WITH ME I WILL PERSONALLY SEE TO IT THAT I KILL IT MYSELF!
( EAW’s EVP of Intermedia Production, Ashten Cross, can be seen entering the room with a clipboard in his hand. )
Ashten Cross: My dude what the fuck is the matter with you–
( Mark Michaels lays him out with a sucker punch, and hovers over him delivering repeated blows over and over again. He then lunges for another employee, and tosses them directly into the camera man filming this footage, cutting the video feed to black, while the audio lingers. )
Mark Michaels’ voice: SHOWS CANCELLED.
