( EAW Intro plays )
( EXTENDED RECAP OF KING OF ELITE 2019 AIRS: Beginning with the show-opening, show-stealing Answers World Championship title bout between Jamie O’Hara and Theron Nikolas. In front of over 90,000 spectators, both individuals would trade their fiercest moves, engage in epic sequences and pull out all the stops — however Theron Nikolas would seal the deal CLEANLY to retain his Answers World Championship. We transition to the back and forth, brutal and violent bout between Ms. Extreme and Bowie Gray for the PURE Championship. Bowie Gray would begin to lose his bearings, and unscrupulously assault Ms. Extreme with a barbed wire baseball bat much to the shock of the audience. Even his mentor, Devan Dubian, could not control his bloodthirsty rage. Moving forward, we saw Black Cabal defeat Monster & The Devil in a hotly contested tag team battle to decide the # 1 Contenders to the EAW Tag Team Championships. Following this match, Darkane and Erebus Jennings were assaulted by a man in a diamond studded mask, who revealed himself to be Mr. DEDEDE. DEDEDE continued his assault with a steel chair, including a final shot leveling Darkane with a conchairto, before leaving the ring with a look more sinister and wicked than ever before. )
( Dynasty Intro plays, featuring the song “Revolution” by The Score. )
( Camera cuts open to the capacity audience in the Prudential Center, cheering wildly as “Revolution” continues over the sound system and pyro rockets up from the stage creating a dazzling light show. )
Stew-O: Six days removed from the most important King of Elite spectacle in the history of EAW! We return from the motherland, back home here in the garden from which the empire known as Elite Answers Wrestling originally bloomed! Hello everyone and welcome to FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY!!!
Talib Bari: WHERE WE FIGHT ON FRIDAY NIGHTS!
“ILLEST MUTHAFUCKA ALIIIIVE!!!!”
( Every LED panel as well as the arena lighting illuminates with a familiar shade of royal gold. The crowd INSTANTLY erupts into a storm of boos, and they continue pouring out their heat before the music of The 1% even begins. The camera pans the raucous audience, showing fans of all ages and backgrounds standing from their seats and voicing their disdain. )
( “Talk Up” by Drake and Jay Z hits, and the stage lighting transitions from the usual royal shade of gold to a deep dark purplish hue. The vibe of the arena is darker than usual, with flickering superficial white lights accompanying the basslane of the music. Theron Nikolas is the first to saunter out to the stage dressed in a 3 piece vested suit with the Answers World Championship wrapped comfortably around his waist. Mr. DEDEDE walks out closely behind him dressed in an all black suit & tie tailored for his frame, and dark shades to complete the look. )
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome, Mr. DEDEDE and “God-Emperor” Theron, THEEEEEEEEEE 11111111111111 PERCEEEEEEEEEENNNTTT!!!!
( The jeers from the crowd, somehow, become LOUDER; as the unbothered pair continue their stroll to the ring. )
Stew: An incredible atmosphere from the sold out Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey with the EAW Headquarters virtually down the road from the arena. And ladies and gentlemen as Dynasty moves on into its next chapter with King of Elite in its rearview, we are joined by a new addition to the Friday Night Dynasty broadcast team!
( Cut to the Dynasty announce table, where Stew-O and Talib Bari are standing by facing the camera, flanking Dynasty’s third commentator, Flannery McCoy! )
Talb: FLANNERY MCCOY! Welcome welcome welcome aboard! Good to have you on the winning team, ma!
Flannery McCoy: It is an absolute pleasure and an honor to be a part of the broadcast team for a brand as incredible as Friday Night Dynasty! I loved my role on Empire and I will never forget the time I spent there, through the good and bad, but I am thrilled and overjoyed to return to my broadcasting roots and sit alongside the legendary Stew-O and of course the irreplaceable Talib Bari!
( The focus returns to the ring, where DDD and Theron are occupying. DDD stands by solemnly with his hands in his pockets while Theron is on the top turnbuckle holding up his Answers World Championship proudly. )
Stew: I’m sure your run over at Empire was a thrillride the entire time Flannery, and Dynasty is going to be all the time. These two men have been a focal point of Dynasty all season long, and after King of Elite –
Talib: NO NO NO, DON’T YOU DARE SUGARCOAT IT STEW, DID YOU SEE THAT PERFORMANCE PUT ON BY THE GOD EMPEROR? THAT PERFORMANCE SOLIDIFIED HIM AS THE BEST WRESTLER IN THE ENTIRE COMPANY, BAR NONE!
Flannery: There’s no question the self-professed God-Emperor is riding high after an incredible night in Johannesburg, and now we will hear from the Answers World Champion who is certainly feeling himself this evening.
( “Talk Up” dies down. DDD stands by in the background stiff as a statue, while Theron paces around the ring and feeds off of the audience’s heel heat. He carries the title confidently over his shoulder, and he looks around the audience with each side of the arena raising its level of heat upon Theron’s mere gaze. )
Theron Nikolas: Still think I’m overrated now?–
Crowd: CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS!
( Theron turns to DDD and cracks a smile, but DDD remains expressionless with his hands in his pockets, as if he doesn’t hear the crowd’s response at all. )
Crowd: CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS!
Theron: CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! You people are — (rubbing his temples) God, you people are breathtakingly stupid. It is simply uncanny how dense all of you inbred morons actually are. When are you going to learn that RONN BANKS IS NEVER, NEVER, NNNNNNNEEEEEEVEEEEEEEEER COMING BACK?
Crowd: (Drowning Theron out) CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS! CM BANKS!
Theron: Seriously, let it die already, it’s over. Just like Banks’ career. Just like Darkane’s relevancy. Just like Jamie O’Hara’s dreams of ever touching a World Championship ever again, let alone being Dynasty’s Ace. At King of Elite I proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am the Ace of this entire company; not just Dynasty, but ALL FOUR brands. I am the name that deserves to be on the marquee, I am the Ace that runs the place, I am truly sovereign over every, single, last, one of you. And there’s nothing ANYBODY can do about it. When I walked into the First National Bank Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa I saw 90 plus thousand critics. 90,000 skeptics. 90,000 doubters, 90,000 nonbelievers. That was what I was greeted with at King of Elite, and do you want to know what I did to all of those people? I MADE THEM SEE GOD.
( A scowling, energetic Theron holds up his Answers World Championship and continues to feed off of the vitriol provided by the fans. )
( SUDDENLY — the crowd bursts in to cheers, which both delights and confuses Theron. After this Theron’s attention is directed to the titantron, where we see Darkane and Erebus Jennings confronting arena security at the loading dock portion of the building. )
Stew: BLACK CABAL IS HERE!
Talib: YEAH BUT THEY’RE BANNED FROM THE ARENA STEW! AND THIS PLACE IS SOLD OUT TONIGHT SO AIN’T NO LOOPHOLES AROUND IT!
Flannery: OH DARKANE JUST SOCKED A SECURITY OFFICIAL! THIS THING IS GETTING UGLY! EREBUS AND DARKANE AND LAYING INTO THE ARENA SECURITY STAFF, AND MORE MEMBERS OF ARENA SECURITY ARE PILING IN TO COMPLETELY RESTRAIN BLACK CABAL!
Darkane: (off-mic) DEDEDE BE A MAN YOU PIECE OF SHIT!!! LET’S SEE HOW TOUGH YOU ARE WHEN WE’RE FACE TO FACE YOU COWARD!
( The DDD Task Force sans Kevin Hunter enters into the frame and begins to zip tie Erebus and Darkane’s hands together before dragging them out of the premises. The audience begins to sound off with ferocious boos, and Theron keeps his gaze focused on the screen while cackling. )
Theron: What are you vermin complaining about now? Come on, do you people WANT to see Erebus and Theron get murdered again?? Because you all know that’s exactly what would happen if they DARED step foot into the same ring as DDD and I tonight. We would crush them, we would stomp them completely out of existence, and we would victimize them so bad it’d be all you people are even able to talk about. But fortunately for them, and for all of you, tonight isn’t about the “Black Cabal”, whatever that stupid name means. Tonight is about the ascension of the most dominant staple in the history of Elite Answers Wrestling, tonight is about The 1%.
( Crowd boos. )
Theron: DDD and I have heard the whispers, we’ve been hearing them since Road to Redemption. Well allow me to correct myself – they aren’t whispers – they were actually sighs of relief stemming from the false sense of security you all had over one bad night. You were all fooled by the loss of Jack Ripley, to the horrific acts of injustice carried out against our Chairman, the man who keeps the lights on in this place, the man who writes our very paychecks. One horrific night was all it took for everybody to write The 1% off, as though Road to Redemption would somehow define the trajectory of the rest of our careers. Well I’m sorry to disappoint you all, but The 1% has made an acquisition so enormous, that by the end of the night The 1% will be stronger than ever before.
Talib: Did he say an acquisition? :lupe:
Stew: I’m not liking the sound of that…
( “I Want It All” by Queen hits over the sound system, and all three members of The Score: Jason McKormick, Shaker Jones and Ryan Wilson walk out to the stage receiving a positive ovation from the fans. Theron and DDD seem unamused from in the ring, and The Score’s music dies down as all three of them have smiles on their faces. )
Jason McKormick: (to Shaker and Ryan) You know boys… after the rough night I had down in Johannesburg, I shouldn’t even be able to crack a smile let alone be so damned happy. I shouldn’t be as giddy as I am right now, but I just can’t help myself, because it feels like I’ve been waiting on this moment ALL SEASON LONG.
Ryan Wilson: Hell yeah! Our target is finally in sight, and boyyyy now that I see that Answers World Title for myself in person, and not behind a wall of DDD’s stooges and yes men, I must say it sure looks shiny!
Theron: Yeah? You like it? Good, because that’s about as close to the Answers World Championship as you’re ever going to get. Now what the hell do you three assholes want?
Shaker Jones: You know damn well what we want son, we’ve only been calling your punkasses out for damn near half the season.
Ryan: Yeah don’t act like you haven’t heard our spiel before. You two represent every rotten aspect of this industry that we’ve been railing against. You two have made Dynasty the most corrupt show in all of Elite Answers Wrestling, even more corrupt than the show that DDD’s niece is in charge of! It’s been a crusty old dirtbag and a lazy slacker for an Answers World Champion hogging up precious moments of this brand with your shenanigans, and we’re here to put them to an end.
Theron: SPARE ME, PLEASE. Lazy slacker??? I JUST DEFEATED JAMIE O’HARA ON ONE OF THE BIGGEST FPVS OF THE YEAR. WHAT HAVE ANY OF YOU DONE? Oh, oh that’s right, you were there weren’t you Jason? That was you who took the pin and were made Malcolm Jones’ bitch, isn’t that right?
( The audience reacts in shock and Jason McKormick drops his microphone and starts walking down the ramp. Theron drops his mic and is prepared for a fight while DDD does a “wrap it up” gesture with his hands. )
( SUDDENLY — Three members of the DDD Task Force emerges from the depths of the audience, hopping the barricade and blocking McKormick from entering the ring. The rest of the DDD Task Force then grabs Ryan Wilson and Shaker Jones from both ends from out of nowhere as they are still on the stage, and tackle them both to the ground before they even get a chance to retaliate before handcuffing the both of them and forcefully removing them from the vicinity. Theron is entertained by the commotion taking place with the Task Force reprimanding The Score, and Dynasty goes to commercial break on a chaotic note. )
( COMMERCIAL BREAK — Including a King of Elite recap featuring the results for the World Championship matches of the other brands! Sienna Jade captured her first Women’s World Championship match by defeating Madison Kaline and Astraea Jordan in a barnburner of a triple threat bout! Ahren Fournier retained his EAW Championship in controversial fashion, knocking Chris Elite off the top of the steel cage and sending him crashing into a pile of stacked steel chairs while Ahren could escape the cage safely for the win. In the headline of the event, Impact captured his unprecedented 8th World Championship victory, but was caught by surprise from the cash in by Noah Reigner allowing Noah to pick up the victory and leave the event the NEW World Heavyweight Champion! )
( Dynasty returns to air, as “Dust” by Tremonti begins to play and Kevin Hunter is in the ring warming up for a match while dressed in his DDD Task Force uniform. We see Stephie Love in the ring wearing a little pink dress and white heels on with a microphone in her hand. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stephie Love: The following contest is our OPENING BOUT of the evening scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, in the left corner representing the DDD Task Force, from Brooklyn, New York weighing in at 235 POUNDS!!! KEEEVVVIIIIIIIIIINNNNN HUNNTEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!
( The other side of the ring shows Jason McKormick with his hands cuffed together as he is flanked by two members of the DDD Task Force. )
Stephie Love: His opponent, from Jackson, Michigan, weighing In at 235 pounds… JJJJJJAAAAASSSSSOOOOONNNNM MMMMMCCCCCCCKKKKKKOOOORRRRRRMMMMIIIICCCCCK!!!!
Stew: it was utter chaos and anarchy before the break as Kevin Hunter and the rest of the Goon Squad tried to shut down The Score and send them away! And during the break as things got settled down we were given two match announcements tonight courtesy of Dynasty General Manager Starr Stan, as Hunter takes on Jason McKormick, while the rest of Score will face off against The 1%!
Talib: That’s right Stew, and from what I understand The Chairman has ordered no outside interference from anybody in that tag team match later on tonight!
Flannery: Well that sounds surprisingly fair of the Chairman, but that tag team main event will have to wait because our opening match has all the potential to be as wild in the ring as things got on the ramp just minutes ago!
( A member of the DDD Task Force uncuffs McKormick at the request of the referee, and the official calls for the bell. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: Here we go this one underway! Collar and elbow tie up in the center of the ring, both men jockeying for position, McKormick with the leverage forcing Hunter backwards into the corner! For those who are just tuning in that voice is none other than our third and newest broadcast colleague, Flannery McCoy, who has joined us here at the Dynasty broadcast table. Flannery it’s already gotten hot and heavy here tonight hasn’t it?
Flannery: Oh it certainly has! It’s such a different atmosphere on Dynasty these days, Empire was certainly an unpredictable place to be but Dynasty legitimately feels like anything could happen at any time!
Talib: Flanny what are your observations on The Score, do you think these three kids are as insane as I do for trying to make enemies of a sick bastard like Mr. DEDEDE, and a guy who practically is allergic to defeat such as our fearless God-Emperor, Theron Nikolas? I mean don’t you feel that there is still so much for them to prove before even daring to take on a task as daunting as that?
Flannery: Well Talib I for one am not among those who think Jason or the rest of The Score have to prove themselves at all! Especially that young man Jason McKormick, who heading into King Of Elite was an incredible underdog who made it all the way to the tournament finals! Although he didn’t capture the crown he was looked at times like he could have pulled it off! Tonight begins the next chapter in his journey by taking care of some unfinished business!
Talib: You know Flanny Jason McKormick did manage to get himself to the tournament finals and nobody can take that away from him, but there are many out there who feel Jason just got lucky, and haven’t jumped on the McKormick bandwagon just yet!
Flannery: Well sure he had a few lucky bounces, same as everyone does from time to time, but as someone who has watching as a fan from week to week I’ll say this, if you haven’t been paying attention to both his progression in the ring, and the quality of the opponents he’s had to face, then I think you might want to have your eyes checked!
Stew: I’m loving having you on commentary already! Glad you aren’t feeding in to Talib’s sporadic spurts of communist state television-style propaganda he likes to spew any time he’s within earshot of somebody affiliated to Mr. DEDEDE.
Talib: Ay bruh I’m just trying to avoid the wrath of Gawdzilla!
Stew: McKormick and Hunter have been engaged in a battle of strength, grappling since the initial phases of the match. This time Hunter with the advantage driving Jason back, but McKormick giving Hunter the slip and Kevin again finds himself with his back against the corner!
Talib: Careful, an animal is most dangerous when it is cornered!
Stew: Jason again backing off-OH HUNTER WITH A CHEAP SHOT THERE! Kevin unloading with clubs to the back! Hunter with the Irish Whip, Jason rebounding off the ropes, AND MCKORMICK LANDS A LEAPING CLOTHESLINE!! Hunter back up, And McKormick takes him down again with another clothesline! Kevin again getting up, Jason this time with the European uppercut! Hunter staggering back from that one! Jason stays on him with a right hook! McKormick whipping Hunter off the ropes… SPEAR!! JASON TEARS KEVIN HUNTER NEARLY IN HALF WITH THAT SPEAR!!! McKormick still not finished as he clenched his hands around the throat of Kevin Hunter! McKormick unleashing weeks of anger with a blatant choke all while he repeatedly lifts and slams the back of Hunter’s head against the mat!
Talib: The referee ordering Jason to break, McKormick reluctantly lets go, Jason picking Hunter up by the head, OH AND KEVIN NAILS HIM WITH A HEADBUTT! That blow stunned McKormick! Hunter taking control of the head, and Kevin drops Jason with a swinging neckbreaker!! Jason refuses to stay down however and is right back up! Kevin ready for him and connects with a kick to the gut! Hunter lifting him up on his shoulders… KIIIIILLLLLLLLEEEEEEERRRRR EEEEEEFFFFEEECCCCCTTT!!! NO! Jason fighting out of it with elbows to the side of the head! McKormick slipping off Hunter’s shoulders, AND McKormick WITH A CLOTHESLINE THAT SENDS HUNTER OVER THE TOP AND DOWN TO THE FLOOR!!!
Stew: Hunter down right in front of us as those two goons from DDD’s Task Force come to tend to him.
Talib: Talk with some more respect, Stew! These are some of the most proficient combat enforcers from across the globe, they aren’t “goons”.
Flannery: McKormick exiting the ring, Ryan Wilson and Shaker Jones not too far behind as he goes after Hunter!
Stew: Hunter getting his back up, JASON WITH THE LEGACY!!! MCKORMICK LOOKING TO TAKE HUNTER’S HEAD OFF WITH THAT SUPER KICK, BUT KEVIN ABLE TO DODGE IT AND INSTEAD ONE OF DEDEDE’S MERCENARIES TASTES SHOE LEATHER!!!
Flannery: McKormick staying on Hunter-OH THAT OTHER THUG JUST NAILED JASON RIGHT IN THE BACK WITH A STEEL BATON!!!
Talib: Jason McKormick is obviously favoring his back after that shot! Hunter back on his feet spotting this, AND KEVIN HUNTER DRIVES JASON BACK FIRST INTO THE APRON!!
Stew: Hunter rolls McKormick back into the ring! Jason getting back to his feet, but Hunter scoops him up and delivers a backbreaker! McKormick writhing in pain but Hunter not letting up as he drops an elbow right to the spine! And now a second elbow drop lands! Kevin still not done as he drags Jason up, AND PLANTS MCKORMICK INTO THE MAT WITH A HUGE POWERBOMB!!! Hunter with the cover!
Talib: Jason quick to kick out! McKormick on all fours, Hunter staying on the attack with a double axe handle to the back! Kevin dragging up Jason by the waistband of his tights, JASON FIGHTING BACK WITH A BACK ELBOW! A SECOND! A THIRD! AND THAT BREAKS THE GRIP OF KEVIN HUNTER! Jason shooting himself off the ropes, AND HUNTER CATCHES HIM WITH A SNAP SCOOP POWER SLAM!!!
Stew: Hunter able to back a lot of power behind that slam! He may just be one of the strongest 235 pounders in all of EAW! AND HE IS NOW USING THAT STRENGTH TO CHOKE THE LIFE OUT OF JASON MCKORMICK!!!
Ref: 1! 2! 3! 4!
Flannery: Hunter letting go before getting himself disqualified! You know it seems to me that Hunter may be growing a bit peeved that McKormick won’t just stay down, won’t just become submissive to his new found authority! Hunter not going for a cover, instead he again picks Jason up off the mat, AND CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER HUGE BACKBREAKER!! HUNTER NOT LETTING GO AS HE DEADLIFTS JASON BACK UP AND DROPS HIM INTO A GUTBUSTER!! HUNTER WITH A COVER!!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE! TTTTWWWWWOOOOOOO!!! KICKOUT!!
Talib: Yeesh what a sick ass gutbuster man! Hunter visibly upset as he mounts McKormick and lands blow after blow to the head! Several hard shots land and McKormick not able to protect himself! The referee forcing Hunter off, Kevin goes right back after Jason, dragging him off the mat by the hair! Hunter lifting him up, AND HAS HIM NOW IN THE TORTURE RACK! RACK BOMB!!! COVER MADE LEG IS HOOKED!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE! TTTTTWWWWWWOOOOO! TTTTHHHH-KICKOUT!!!
Stew: The attack of Kevin Hunter has been remorseless! And now Hunter grabs the leg… HORSE COLLAR!!! SINGLE LEG OVER THE SHOULDER CRABS LOCKED IN!!! AND LOOK AT THE ANGLE WHERE ALL THE PRESSURE IS AGAINST MCKORMICK’S LOWER BACK!!! JASON IN TREMENDOUS PAIN AS HE CRAWLS ALONG THE CANVAS HAVING TO DRAG KEVIN HUNTER ALONG WITH HIM AS HE TRIES TO MAKE IT TO THE ROPES!!!
Talib: McKormick DRAWING CLOSER TO THE ROPE BUT HE LOOKS TO BE FADING OUT HERE! JASON REACHING OUT… AND HIS FINGERTIP JUST GRAZES THE BOTTOM ROPE!!! McKormick TRYING TO REACH OUT AGAIN… BUT COLLAPSES!!! MCKORMICKS BODY GIVING OUT ON HIM JUST INCHES FROM THE ROPE!!!
Flannery: JASON MCKORMICK INCAPACITATED HERE AS THE REFEREE GOING TO CHECK ON HIM,REMEMBER IF HIS HAND DROPS THREE TIMES THE MATCH IS OVER!!
( The referee lifts Jason’s hand, it falls once!)
Stew: The ref checking again if there is any life in Jason McKormick!!
(The hand drops a second time. )
Flannery: This one may be over right now! The referee lifting Jason’s hand one final time!
Flannery: McKormick STILL IN THIS ONE!!! JASON REACHING OUT… AND THIS TIME HE GRABS THE ROPE!!!
Talib: Hunter releases the hold, but begins stomping away at Jason’s back before he can get back up! Hunter picking Jason up by the head and whips him off the ropes, Hunter with a back body drop, BUT JASON COUNTERS WITH THE FACEBUSTER!!! McKormick came down with a little something extra on that one!
Stew: Jason now crawling to the apron, he in a lot of pain but with the aid of the ropes he picks himself up and begins to scale the turnbuckles! Jason up top-OH KEVIN HUNTER BACK UP IN A FLASH AND LANDS A HARD RIGHT!!! Jason crotched on that turnbuckle! Hunter climbing up as well! HUNTER LOOKING FOR A SUPERPLEX!!! BUT JASON FIGHTING BACK!

Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE! TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!!!! TTTTTTHHHHRRRRREEEEE!!!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
(The crowd cheers as “Devil in I” by Slipknot starts up over the arena speakers. )
Stephie love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS YOUR WINNER, JJJJAAAAASSSSSOOOOONNN MMMMMMCCCCKKKKKKOOOOORRRRRRMMMMIIICCCCKKKKK!!!
Flannery: What a performance and a show of will by, arguably, the prodigy of The Score! Does that answer the skeptics questions about whether or not Jason McKormick Is the real deal?!
Stew: Sounds like a question for you, Bari!
Talib: If it didn’t, then it certainly went a long way towards doing so!
( Jason rolls out of the ring with his arms raised high. )
Flannery: It hasn’t been easy so far but the night is off to a great start for Jason McKormick and The Score! The real question now is can they go 2 for 2?
( Match card appears on the screen featuring the main event of the evening: Ryan Wilson and Shaker Jones of The Score facing Theron Nikolas and Mr. DEDEDE of The 1%. )
Talib: That question has an answer Flanny, and it’ll be answered in our main event scheduled for the evening, as The Score faces their ultimate challenge ahead with Ryan WIlson and Shaker Jones teaming up to take on the Answers World Champion Theron Nikolas and The Gawd himself, Mr. DEDEDE!
( STATIC overtakes the screen and for the briefest amount of time the white noise that accompanies it is heard. That is until the audio faded into shrill, horrified screams of both male and female variety. Those screams would continue throughout this video sequence, but faded into the background music – which was the looped chorus of “COMMUNION OF THE CURSED”. The video feed, however, remained static until abruptly switching to one of an isolated, deserted street in the middle of night. The surrounding area was pitch black except for one solitary street light. And standing underneath that streetlight was Donovan Cross. We know this due to the horrific devil mask he wore. )
Donovan Cross: You want to know what makes me tick? The satisfaction I get while watching other people suffer, writhing in pain at the torture that I administer. Hearing the last breath drawn from their lungs before I end everything they’ve ever known with my bare hands. ZERO, Andy Lush and the Core brothers were only examples of the of depravity that myself and Apocalypse are capable of, but even that was just scratching the surface. If we wanted to, the Score and Black Cabal would have joined those four in death. And even though they still live and breathe, they know the horrors that could – and potentially will – await them around the next corner…
But I serve a greater purpose than just eradicating the roster as I see fit. Though I am an instrument of death, the Reaper’s Scythe if you will, I have been tasked with something else entirely. Instead of destroying man, I have been sent to destroy the machine. This entire organization is ‘the machine’, and my objective is to burn it to the ground. We’ve allowed people to survive, because we want the world to remember what happens here. They’ve been blessed with life, with the greater purpose of retelling the stories of what takes place going forward. They’ve been given the task of telling everyone what exactly the Devil has done to this company once it’s all over with.
The night has only just begun for the EAW, and what the night brings is chaos, destruction and death.
You want to know what makes me tick?
( Donovan removed his mask. A sick smile spread across his face. )
Donovan Cross: Watching this company burn to ashes. Not even the foundation of this company will be left once I am finished. All that will remain are a select few to pass down the stories… stories of how the Devil came wielding the fires of hell as a weapon.
The rest? They’re destined to burn just like this company….
( A sinister laugh escapes Donovan and the video slowly fades back out to static. The music in the background stops as well, and all we’re left with is the shrill screaming from before.. )
(Commercial break for McDonald’s featuring Showdown megastar Chudd. He’s lovin’ it.)
(Dynasty returns and focuses on Stephie Love inside the ring. She looks absolutely radiant tonight.)
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Blood // Water’ by grandson begins to play throughout Prudential Center. The crowd immediately begins to jeer as “The Reaper” Bowie Gray makes his way onto the stage. He is followed by EAW Hall of Famer, Devan Dubian.)
Stephie Love: INTRODUCING FIRST… BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY DEVAN DUBIAN… FROM SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS… WEIGHING IN AT 185 POUNDS… HE IS THE REAPER… BOWIE GRAY!!!!
(The crowd is not impressed.)
Talib Bari: :wow: There’s absolutely no love for Bowie Gray from this New Jersey crowd tonight.
Stew-O: His actions at King of Elite were absolutely despicable. He literally tried to the execute Ms. Extreme and put her back on the shelf!
Flannery McCoy: It was a disturbing to say the least, and even Devan looked completely floored about what was going on with his… business associate, I guess. Bowie Gray is a loose cannon and honestly, I’m not even sure if he’s mentally fit to be wrestling here tonight.
(Bowie and Devan get inside the ring, and Devan starts going over a game plan with Bowie. Whether or not The Reaper is truly listening is anyone’s guess. The wheels seem to be turning, but that hamster is ded.)
(Bowie’s music fades and is soon replaced by “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled ft. Ludacris, Rick Ross, T-Pain & Snoop Dogg. The sold out crowd inside the Prudential Center absolutely loses their shit as one of their favorite sons strolls out. Crosby Carter is joined by his wife, Carsyn, and their other half, Thadd Blazevich. All three of them take a moment to soak in the reaction of the crowd, their eyes wide.)
Stephie Love: AND HIS OPPONENT… BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY CARSYN CARTER AND THADD BLAZEVICH… FROM WOODBRIDGE, NEEEEEWWWW JEEEEEEEEERSSSSEEEEEEEYYYYYY….
(HUGE pop from the crowd.)
Stephie Love: WEIGHING IN AT 199 POUNDS… HE IS CROOOOOOOSBY CAAAAAAAARTER!!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: Wow listen at this reaction!!!! The Carters and Thadd haven’t been in EAW for very long but they have already cemented themselves as favorites in all of these fans’ eyes.
Talib Bari: Jersey loves their homegrown talent, but these three seem to be popular everywhere they go. The performance Crosby put on at King of Elite, with Carsyn’s help of course, leaves no doubt in my mind that Crosby is a future champion here in EAW. The guy gets it, and he knows he has to do whatever it takes. There’s going to be a Bro with a title around here sooner, rather than later.
Stew-O: I don’t disagree with any of this. They are a breath of fresh air here on Dynasty.
(The FloBros stop at the ring, with Carsyn giving her man a quick kiss for good luck. Thadd and Crosby exchange bro hugs, and Crosby slips inside the ring. He sheds his leather jacket and looks across at Bowie and Devan. Devan pats Bowie on the shoulder and climbs out of the ring. The referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Talib Bari: The bell rings and honestly I don’t even know what to expect from this match. Carter can’t chain wrestle his way out of a paper bag and Bowie Gray all but committed a murder at King of Elite. Factor in Devan Dubian, Carsyn Carter, and Thadd 2 Badd down there… yeah.
Flannery McCoy: Well nonetheless, Crosby Carter is getting us started tonight. He grabs Bowie in a side headlock and they both end up pressed against the ropes. Crosby lets go of the headlock and whips Bowie across the ring. Bowie comes flying back, but Crosby catches him with a shoulder. Crosby doesn’t waste any time. He rushes the ropes himself, flies at Bowie who’s gotten back up to his feet, and looks to take him down with a clothesline…
Stew-O: Bowie manages to leapfrog over Crosby though! Bowie hits the ropes! Crosby drops down to the mat! Bowie rebounds and this time it’s Crosby with a leapfrog of his own! Both men stop their respective momentum right in the middle of the ring and it’s Bowie who looks for a kick! Crosby catches his foot! Crosby drops it! He looks for a kick of his own! Bowie catches Crosby’s foot! Bowie spins Crosby around! Bowie with a wild right hand! He catches the bro on the jaw! Crosby staggers back, but he balls up his fist and throws his own right!! He knocks Bowie off balance!!!
Flannery McCoy: Crosby drives forward… he’s looking to follow up that punch with a kick! But Bowie catches him by the foot!!! He flips Crosby over, but Crosby lands on his feet!!! Crosby quickly slips behind Bowie and picks up him! I have no idea what kind of move he’s going for here, but Bowie ends up flipping out of it and landing on his feet!!! Crosby turns around and Bowie catches him with a dropkick!!! Crosby falls back against the ropes! Bowie lunges forward… jumping knee strike to Crosby Carter’s face!!!!
Stew-O: Crosby Carter falls forward!!! Bowie catches him with a nice looking stunner!!! BOWIE GRAY WITH THE COVER!!!
Talib Bari: CROSBY WITH THE KICKOUT!!!!
Stew-O: Bowie grabs Crosby up by the manbun and whips him across the ring! He swings wildly… looking to connect with a clothesline! Crosby ducks under it and quickly locks his arms around Bowie’s waist!
Talib Bari: Bowie blocks the takedown attempt and reverses the waist lock!!! He tries to take Crosby down! But Crosby reverses!!! The two of them are just exchanging waist locks now and I’m actually kind of surprised! Neither of these two are traditional wrestlers per say, and both have a hardcore background.
Flannery McCoy: Crosby finally gets Bowie down to the mat and he quickly rolls him up for a cover!!!
Stew-O: BOWIE POWERS OUT!!!!
Talib Bari: Crosby is quickly back up though and he runs the ropes! That momentum he’s carrying right now brings him right back towards Bowie and he nails him in the face with a dropkick! Crosby scoops Bowie up and slams him down on the mat! Crosby hits the ropes again!!!! LEG DROP ACROSS BOWIE’S THROAT!!!! CROSBY GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER!!!!
Flannery McCock: BOWIE POWERS OUT!!!!
Talib Bari: Crosby mounts Bowie and is punching him in the face and head now!!! That seems to knock some sense into Bowie and he reaches up… seizing Crosby by the neck!!!! Bowie digs his fingers into Crosby’s throat and the bro tries to pry Bowie’s fingers off of him! Bowie digs in and is able to sling Crosby off of him and get back to his feet! He charges towards Crosby and slams his foot into Crosby’s face! Bowie places Crosby throat first across the ropes and begins choking him, and the referee is forced to step in and start administering the count. This infuriates The Reaper and he lets up on Crosby and turns his attention to the ref!!!
Stew-O: This referee wants absolutely nothing to do with Bowie Gray and I don’t blame him. This is not a stable individual. Dub is trying to get Bowie’s attention, shouting at him to get back on Crosby. The Bro has crawled to the corner and has his wife whispering in his ear right now. Crosby nods his head and slowly pulls himself back to his feet.
Flannery McCoy: Bowie is in the referee’s face now and the referee is warning him to step back! Bowie doesn’t listen to reason though! Crosby is sneaking up behind Bowie now!!! CROSBY ROLLS HIM UP!!!!! CROSBY BRIDGES BACK!!!! THE REFEREE IS DOWN AND STARTS TO COUNT!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Talib Bari: OH SHIT!!! ANOTHER WIN FOR CROSBY CARTER!!!!!
Stew-O: Crosby Carter took advantage of the situation and scored a win over the former number one contender for the PURE Championship!!!!!
(Crosby’s music begins to blast across the arena again as the bro rolls out of the ring and celebrates with his crew. Bowie Gray doesn’t know what the hell just happened, and on the outside of the ring, Devan Dubian is shaking his head. That’s not how the match was supposed to end at all.)
Flannery McCoy: The FloBros celebrate as they head up the ramp, but Bowie Gray is still inside the ring and coming to the realization that he lost this match for himself.
(Bowie looks at Devan, and then over at the referee. Upon seeing the referee, something inside Bowie just seems to snap. He’s certainly not going to blame himself for what had just happened. He springs to his feet, grabs the referee, and forces him into the corner.)
Talib Bari: Someone needs to get Bowie Gray out of the ring right now. He’s yelling at the referee and now he’s put his hands on him.
Bowie Gray (Off Mic): ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS? DO YOU KNOW HOW TO FUCKING COUNT?! THAT. WAS. NOT. A. THREE. COUNT.
Referee (Off Mic): I-I-I was just doing my job! Carter had you pinned fairly and your shoulders were down.
Bowie Gray: HA!!!!! STUPID FUCKING OFFICIAL. I’M GOING TO RIP YOUR FUCKING ARM OFF AND SHOW YOU WHAT A THREE COUNT IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE!!!!!!!!!
(Bowie slams his head into the referee and the man slumps to the ground. Bowie starts putting the boots to him, absolutely stomping a mudhole into him. Dub hits the ring and grabs Bowie, attempting to calm him down. Bowie shoves Dub back and drops down, choking the referee and attempting to take him out.)
Flannery McCoy: HERE COMES MS. EXTREME!!!! MS. EXTREME HAS HIT THE RING AND SHE HAS A KENDO STICK!!!!!
(Ms. Extreme takes the kendo stick and nails Dub in the back!!!! He drops to his knees and she slams her foot right into his face! Dub falls back and Ms. Extreme holds the kendo stick high above her head. She brings it down across the balls of Devan Dubian and the Hall of Famer cries out!!!)
Stew-O: BOWIE GRAY GETS UP AND TURNS AROUND! MS. EXTREME TAKES THAT KENDO STICK AND SLAMS IT INTO HIS MIDSECTION!!!! BOWIE DROPS AND SHE BEGINS BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF HIM!!! MS. EXTREME SLAMS THAT KENDO STICK INTO BOWIE GRAY OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!! HE IS DEFENSELESS RIGHT NOW! MS. EXTREME LETS OUT A SCREAM OF DELIGHT, WHICH HAS THIS CROWD EATING OUT OF THE PALM OF HER HAND!!! SHE STANDS OVER BOWIE AND RAISES THE KENDO STICK OVER HER HEAD…
Flannery McCoy: BUT DUB IS BACK UP! HE LIMPS OVER TO MS. EXTREME AND GRABS THE KENDO STICK!!! SHE TURNS AROUND, TRYING TO FIGHT HIM OFF, BUT HE CATCHES HER IN THE STOMACH WITH HIS BOOT!!! MS. EXTREME STUMBLES BACK AND DUB CATCHES HER WITH A STIFF RIGHT HAND TO THE FACE!!!! HE GRABS HER BY THE HAIR AND SPIKES HER TO THE MAT WITH A DDT AND NOW HE’S STOMPING AWAY ON HER. HE SCREAMS AT BOWIE TO GET UP AND THE REAPER DRAGS HIMSELF TO HIS FEET!!!! BOWIE GRABS THE KENDO STICK AND HE SLAMS IT INTO MS. EXTREME’S FACE AND NOW BOTH OF THEM ARE DOUBLE TEAMING MS. EXTREME!!!!
(All of a sudden, the fans begin going crazy.)
Talib Bari: CAMERON ELLA AVA!!! CAM IS BACK!!! CAM IS BACK!!!!
Flannery McCoy: JAMIE O’HARA IS BEHIND HER! OH MY GOD!!!! CAM AND JAMIE HIT THE RING!!!!
Stew-O: JAMIE GRABS DEVAN AND THROWS HIM INTO THE CORNER! JAMIE AND DUB!!! THEY’RE BEATING UP ON ONE ANOTHER NOW!!!! CAM HAS SPEARED BOWIE INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER AND SHE’S DRIVING HER SHOULDER INTO HIS MIDSECTION!!!! CAM WITH A SERIES OF KICKS NOW TO BOWIE AND SHE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A STRAIGHT RIGHT HAND THAT BUSTS BOWIE’S NOSE OPEN!!!! JAMIE HAS DONE SIMILAR DAMAGE TO DUB, AND JAMIE SHOUTS AT CAM. CAM LOOKS AT JAMIE. THE TWO OF THEM EXCHANGE SMIRKS!!! JAMIE AND CAM GRAB DUB AND BOWIE AND WHIP THEM ACROSS THE RING!!! DUB AND BOWIE COLLIDE WITH ONE ANOTHER!!!! BOTH OF THEM HIT THE MAT!!! JAMIE GRABS DUB!!! CAM GRABS BOWIE!!! THEY PULL THEM UP AND WHIP THEM INTO THE ROPES!!!!
Talib Bari: IN EXCELSIS!!!!
Flannery McCoy: JAMIE WITH A RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO DUB!!! CAMERON WITH ONE TO BOWIE GRAY!!! DEVAN DUBIAN AND BOWIE GRAY ARE DOWN AND OUT!!! OH MY GOD!!!!
(The crowd screams as Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava kick Devan Dubian and Bowie Gray out of the ring. Ms. Extreme is sitting up, and Cameron rushes to her sister’s side, throwing her arms around her. She helps Ms. Extreme back to her feet and Jamie joins them, satisfied that Devan Dubian and Bowie Gray aren’t going to cause any more problems tonight. He stands between his wife and sister-in-law, and raises their hands in the air.)

( The broadcast opens backstage at the Dynasty interview area where Cori Simmons is standing by with a microphone in hand, and a big smile on her face as she’s dressed in sleeveless checkered jumpsuit and wearing large hoop earrings. )
Cori Simmons: Good evening ladies and gentlemen, exciting times here on Friday Night Dynasty as we’re right off the heels of one of the most exciting mega events in recent EAW history! Here with me right now is none other than Dynasty General Manager, Starr Stan!
( Starr Stan enters the frame dressed in an EAW Authentic “FloBros” t-shirt and a beige suit jacket and dress pants. )
Starr Stan: Good evening Cori. Gotta say I’m not used to you as a backstage person.
Cori: Yeah it takes some getting used to not screaming into the mic. (laughs)
Starr: (laughs) Well it gets easier with time, trust me the more time you spend backstage the more you’ll start to wish people would shut up.
Cori: Haha I’m sure that’ll happen soon enough! I just wanted to get a second to pick your brain with a few questions that a lot of people have been wondering as of late here on Dynasty. It’s no secret with you as the General Manager and with Mr. DEDEDE on this brand as an Elitist who just so happens to be the EAW Chairman, there seems to be a “push and pull” between your will vs. the will of DDD and The 1%. My first and probably most important question for you is, do you feel there are too many cooks here on Friday Night Dynasty?
Starr: Damn, you got me with a tough one Cori. Ummm… I guess I’ll just go out and say it, yeah there are too many cooks around here. It’s been that way really from the onset of the season, and I find myself having to bend over backwards more often just to be able to run my show the way I intend to. I was initially put into power with the idea of making Dynasty live up to its tagline as the place where you can come to see a fight every Friday night. As an Olympic champion and a multiple time EAW World Champion, there is no one who takes more pride in the purely competitive aspect of this show quite like I do. But it’s hard to say that Dynasty has always been a merit based brand when–
???: You sure as hell are right about that, Q-ball!
( Albert Hitchman and Lucas Johnson enter the frame with smug expressions on their face. )
Albert Hitchman: There’s no question that Friday Night Dynasty has failed to live up to its billing as the merit based, action packed pure sporting event that it is promoted as. And you are every bit as part of the problem as any-freaking-body-else.
Starr: Oh really?
Albert: Really. My client Lucas Johnson has already proven himself to be the man above the monster among men when he toppled the fraud monster APOCALYPSE. Then he went on to upset Hades the Hellraiser in a dominant performance in the Extreme Elimination Chamber. He has made Hades his own personal whipping boy for weeks on end, and mind you we’re talking about an EAW HALL OF FAMER!!!! But somehow that isn’t enough for you now is it? No, it just isn’t satisfying enough for you, because my client Lucas Johnson is still nowhere near a championship opportunity of any caliber. So tell me Starr, where the HELL is the merit behind any of that?!
Starr: Alright 4chins listen up, first of all your client Lucas Johnson is a grown ass man who should be able to speak for himself without a blubbering buffoon like you following him around as his mouthpiece and pocketing 20% of his earnings for it. Secondly, I will acknowledge Lucas has had some impressive moments on Dynasty this season, but scattered moral victories aren’t enough for me to simply reward the guy with title opportunities. That may be how people like DDD work, but that’s not the way I’m going to do things. Now I’ve been very considerate towards you guys especially considering the disgusting actions you two have done in order to screw with a Hall of Famer, even bringing a man’s deceased family into this. What you two did last week was absolutely atrocious – so much so that I couldn’t even put it into words. I may expect this from a goofy frat boy like Lucas, but for someone like you to be involved in chicanery like this just says a lot about how low you are.
Albert: Oh spare me.
Starr: Oh not tonight, I’m not sparing either of you tonight. You gentlemen want an opportunity so bad don’t you? Well be careful what you wish for, because I’ve got an opportunity for you Lucas, and it’s an opportunity at an ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP match next week in the main event of Dynasty!
( Hitchman and Johnson raise their eyebrows, surprised by the proposition. )
Albert: Well I’ll be damned, Starr Stan actually doing his job well for a change!
Starr: I’ll be glad to give you that opportunity………. but you’re going to have to earn it before I give it to you. And you’re going to have to earn it against a man who you have been provoking for over the past number of weeks, because I’m putting you in a match tonight against HADES THE HELLRAISER.
Lucas Johnson: Oh come on!
Starr: Oh now he speaks! I hope you liked that Lucas, because you’re going to love this: You defeat Hades tonight and you’ll get your Answers World Championship opportunity… but I’ve been putting this match off for a while now because I assumed you’d like at least some consideration for your wellbeing. But since you clearly don’t care about yourself enough to avoid going after a ruthless SOB’s family, I’m going to make sure it’s fair game between you and him, because tonight’s match against Hades will be a LAST MAN STANDING MATCH!!!!
Albert: WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH YOU?! STOP THIS!!! STOP IT NOW!!
( Starr leaves with a grin on his face, and Lucas and Hitchman follow him off camera while Cori Simmons looks on in shock. )
Flannery: OHHH MY GOODNESS! LUCAS VS HADES IN A LAST MAN STANDING MATCH TONIGHT!!!
Talib: ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THIS ISN’T FAIR! THIS IS WRONG! HOW DO YOU JUST THROW SOMEONE INTO A LAST MAN STANDING MATCH ON SUCH SHORT NOTICE?! LUCAS HASN’T EVEN HAD TIME TO STRETCH!
Stew: As the saying goes Bari, careful what you wish for, because you just might get it!
(Re-education (through labor) by Rise Against begins to play as the crowd gives a negative reaction. Mark Michaels emerges onto the stage as he ignores the crowd and makes his way to the ring.)
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, from Minneapolis, Minnesota, weighing 240 pounds… MARKK MICHHAEELLLSS!
Stew: Tonight marks the first Friday Night Dynasty match for Mark Michaels in five months, and Flannery I understand his campaign against Elite Answers Wrestling has been making its rounds even among other brands?
Flannery: We were all appalled by some of the horrible things that he had to say about this company. I tried to get a word in with Mark earlier, and all he would really tell me was that he intended to destroy EAW “one way or another.” I can’t say I relate to his message or his credo whatsoever, but a lot of people are doubtful about how he intends to accomplish this kind of task.
(“King of the Underground” – R.A. the Rugged Man plays as the crowd begins to cheer. Malik Kennedy comes onto the stage as he high fives some of the fans on his way to the ring.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Cleveland, Ohio, weighing 177 pounds…. MALLLIKKK KENNNEDDYYYYYY!
Talib: Big night for Mark Michaels, but a career defining night for Malik Kennedy you guys. Point blank period this is a CAN’T LOSE situation, if Malik Kennedy fails that’ll be his third loss on Friday Night Dynasty in a row with 0 wins under his belt. And to tell you the truth I’m not sure if I like his chances, he is going up against a man who has been in championship matches, Glass Gauntlet matches, he’s experienced the big stage and he looks in fantastic condition tonight.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: It’s absolutely do or die for Malik Kennedy. This match is now underway. Mark Michaels approaches Malik Kennedy and throws a swing! Malik quickly steps back to avoid it and now connects with a kick to the stomach of Mark. Mark is in quick pain as Malik kicks him in the gut one more time. Malik now quickly steps behind Mark as he plots his next course of action. He straightens Marks body up and pushes him into the corner. He now drives his knee right into the spine of Mark. He now steps back… AND GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE! MARK DUCKS AS MALIK STOPS HIS MOMENTUM IN THE CORNER! HE TURNS AROUND AND IS MET WITH A DISCUS PUNCH BY MARK MICHAELS!
Talib: Malik is reeling after that connected! He’s without a doubt feeling the effects from that discus punch! He falls back against the ropes and takes a few steps forward… ONLY TO BE MET ONE MORE TIME BY ANOTHER DISCUS PUNCH! HE DROPS AS MARK MICHAELS WAS RUTHLESS WITH THAT! Mark now drives his boot right into the stomach of the downed Malik Kennedy! He now drives it onto his throat to choke him! MALIK REACHES FOR HIS THROAT AS THE REFEREE INTERVENES TO BREAK IT UP! Malik now tries to quickly get up as Mark was forced to take a step away from him! CHOP BLOCK! MARK MICHAELS COMES RUNNING IN FROM BEHIND MALIK AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A CHOP BLOCK!
Flannery: Mark now catches Malik from behind and executes a backstabber! Malik goes down feeling pain to both his back and his leg! Mark now makes the cover!
Stew: Malik manages to kick out at the count of two! Mark gets up and stomps once again directly into the midsection of Malik Kennedy who has no choice but to endure this punishment at the hands of Mark Michaels! Mark now slowly pulls up Malik as he pummels him with several shots to maintain control! ANOTHER DISCUS PUNCH! MARK ROCKS MALIK ONCE MORE AS MALIK IS KNOCKED BACK INTO THE CORNER! MARK NOW RUNS WITH GREAT MOMENTUM AND DRILLS MALIK WITH THAT RUNNING CORNER CLOTHESLINE! Mark now pauses for a moment as he sets Malik up! He lifts him up and places him atop the top turnbuckle!
Talib: It looks like Mark is planning on joining him up there… BUT MALIK DRIVES HIS BOOT INTO THE MARK OF JAW AS HE KICKS HIM AWAY! MARK IS STUNNED AS MALIK STANDS ON THE TOP ROPE AND LEAPS AS MARK IS LEFT OPEN… FLYING CLOTHESLINE! MALIK NEARLY TAKES MARK’S HEAD OFF WITH THAT CLOTHESLINE FROM THE TOP ROPE! MALIK NOW COVERS MARK!
Stew: Mark isn’t done yet ever after that clothesline from Malik after he musters up the strength to kick out! Mark begins to get up as Malik takes a step back as he awaits his opportunity! MALIK NOW KICKS MARK DIRECTLY IN THE SPINE! HE NOW SPINS MARK AROUND AND DRIVES HIS BOOT INTO HIS MIDSECTION ONE MORE TIME! HE NOW STRAIGHTS UP MARK AS HE LEAPS AND CONNECTS WITH A DROP KICK RIGHT TO THE JAW OF MARK! Malik Kennedy now takes a step back as Mark brings himself up once more and takes off… SWINGING NECK BREAKER! MALIK DROPS MARK ONCE MORE!
Flannery: MALIK NOW SITS UP MARK AFTER HE’S DOWNED! HE KICKS HIM DIRECTLY IN THE BACK AND HEADS IN FRONT OF HIM! HE RUNS OFF THE ROPES RIGHT TOWARDS MARK… SHINING WIZARD! THAT COULD BE IT… BUT MARK DUCKS JUST IN TIME! Malik misses it as Mark pulls himself down in time to avoid it! Malik catches himself and turns his attention back towards Mark! ONLY TO BE CAUGHT WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT BY MARK!
Stew: MARK DRIVES HIS KNEE INTO THE GUT OF MALIK TO SET UP HIS NEXT MOVE! HE PULLS IN MALIK AND EXECUTES A GUTWRENCH SUPLEX! IT CONNECTS! Mark now pulls up Malik once more and drives several rights and lefts into him to drive him back! Mark now grabs Malik and sets him up for a… FORWARD RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! IT CONNECTS AS MARK HAS GAINED THE UPPER HAND IN THIS MATCH! Mark now quickly eyes the ropes and makes haste to get to them! He quickly ascends to the top turnbuckle as Malik Kennedy is still downed where Mark hit his previous move! MARK LEAPS WITH HIS EYES SET ON MALIK…. DIVING LEG DROP! IT CONNECTS! WHAT A HUGE MOVE! MARK COVERS!
Talib: KICK OUT! MARK IS FURIOUS! THE MOMENT MALIK KICKS OUT IS THE MOMENT MARK GOES INTO A RAGE! HE STANDS UP AS HE STOMPS MALIK REPEATEDLY IN THE MIDSECTION! HE NOW PICKS UP MALIK! HE ROCKS HIM WITH SEVERAL PUNCHES! HE NOW SPINS HIM AROUND… REBEL WITHOUT A PAUSE! HE GOES FOR THE ZIG ZAG! BUT MALIK GRABS ONTO THE ROPES AS MARK FAILS TO CONNECTS! MARK GETS UP… AND IS MET WITH AN ENZUIGIRI FROM MALIK KENNEDY! RIGHT INTO THE SKULL OF MARK MICHAELS!
Stew: These men continue to go back and forth! Mark pulls himself up with the ropes as he must be dazed after that enzuigiri! MALIK KENNEDY IS WAITING FOR HIM AS HE TURNS! IT CAME FROM CLEVELAND! HE LAUNCHES THE SUPER KICK! MARK DUCKS TO AVOID IT! HE GETS BEHIND MALIK AS HE MISSES THE SUPER KICK! DISCUS PUNCH! HE GOES FOR IT ONCE MORE…. BUT MALIK DUCKS AND HE CATCHES MARK WITH A SMALL PACKAGE ROLL UP! THE COVER!
ONNEEE! TWOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Talib: THAT’S IT! MALIK CATCHES MARK WITH THE SMALL PACKAGE FOR THE WIN!
(“King of the Underground” – R.A. the Rugged Man begins to play as the crowd cheers as Malik Kennedy gets to his feet and begins to celebrate.)
Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. MALLLIIIIKKKKK KENNEDYYYYYYY!
Stew: Mark Michaels cannot be happy about that! Malik Kennedy managed to avoid that discus punch and set up Mark for that small package which secured him the victory.
Flannery: Congratulations to Malik Kennedy as he heads back to the locker room to continue celebrating. Those two men went back and forth the whole match.
(Mark Michaels is then at ringside as he appears furious. He’s in an intense argument with the referee who is attempting to calm him down.)
Stew: Mark Michaels is still out here and in a heated debate with the referee as he is absolutely furious.
(Mark Michaels then turns as two fans continue to heckle him. He gets into an argument with them.)
Talib: This isn’t good, Stew. Mark is now engaged with two fans here at ringside as they were heckling him. OH MY GOD! MARK SLAPS ONE OF THOSE FANS! HE CAN’T DO THAT!!! HE JUST SLAPPED THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS OUT OF THEM!
Flannery: Oh my God….
Stew: MARK IS FURIOUS AND THOSE FANS ONLY ADDED TO HIS ANGER! OH MY GOD! HE’S GRABBING THE OTHER FAN AND DRAGS HIM OUT OF THE CROWD! HE THROWS THE FAN DOWN AND LAYS INTO HIM WITH A SERIES OF RIGHTS AND LEFTS!
Talib: WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING! FIRST HE SLAPS ONE FAN, AND IS NOW ASSAULTING ANOTHER! HE NOW GETS UP AND STOMPS ON THE FAN MULTIPLE TIMES!
( A team of referees quickly come running down the ramp towards Mark Michaels.)
Stew: A TEAM OF REFEREES NOW ARRIVE ON THE SCENE AS THEY PULL BACK MARK AS HE WAS CONTINUING TO STOMP ON THAT FAN! THE REFEREES HOLD HIM BACK! WHAT A HORRIBLE DISPLAY BY MARK MICHAELS!
Flannery: I’m… very afraid. That – that can’t happen, that is probably the worst thing that could have possibly happened on this show. We’re going to need to take a quick break.

Stephie Love: The following match is a LAST MAN STANDING MATCH and it’s scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Stephie Love: This match will be no count outs, no disqualification. The only way to win this match is by having your opponent be unable to answer the ten count! Introducing first, from Devil’s Town, North Carolina, weighing in 325 pounds, he is “The 4th Horseman”, HAAAADDDDDEEESSSSS THHHHEEEEEE HELLLLLRAAAAIIIISSSSSEEEEERRRRR —
Stew-O: LUCAS JOHNSON STRIKES HADES THE HELLRAISER FROM BEHIND WITH A PAIR OF BRASS KNUCKLES! HADES GOES STUMBLING DOWN AS LUCAS RAISES HIS FIST UP IN THE AIR! IT’S ALMOST LIKE HE HAS WON THE MATCH! ALBERT HITCHMAN IS APPLAUDING HIS CLIENT’S ACTIONS AS THE CROWD IS NOT LIKING IT ONE BIT! AS MUCH AS LUCAS WOULD LOVE TO LEAVE HADES DOWN THERE, THERE IS THE REALIZATION THAT THIS MATCH HAS NOT BEGUN YET! Lucas gets Hades and takes him to the ring! Lucas rolls Hades underneath the bottom rope before stepping through the ropes himself! Lucas is demanding the official to ring the bell, so that he can begin his count as the official decides to get this match underway!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Flannery McCoy: Personally, I would have wanted the official to check on Hades before beginning this match, but it’s whatever. Hades was not expecting to be hit blindside by Lucas Johnson as he is in an all fours position! The look on Lucas Johnson’s face is in shock! He thought one mighty punch with the brass knuckles would have done the trick, but Hades is a legend in the business and is refusing to back down! Hades uses the assistance of the ropes to stand himself up, but Lucas goes right after Hades the Hellraiser with some punches to the back! Lucas still has the brass knuckles in his right hands as he is delivering some of the most brutal punches that I have ever seen him throw! Hades find himself on one knee as Lucas rebounds from the ropes and connects with a shining wizard, but HADES MANAGES TO TURN HIMSELF AROUND AND SWEEP LUCAS BY HIS RIGHT LEG! LUCAS FINDS HIMSELF ON HIS BACK AS HADES MUSTERS UP ENOUGH STRENGTH TO BEGIN UNLOADING A SERIES OF FIERY FISTS ON THE FORMER NEW BREED CHAMPION! THE CROWD IS LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT AS LUCAS IS TRYING TO BLOCK THESE PUNCHES, BUT HADES IS GETTING EACH SHOT IN! HADES STOPS PUNCHING LUCAS AS HE RISES BACK TO HIS FEET! HE GETS LUCAS UP BY THAT SMUG FACE OF HIS AND SLAMMING HIM INTO THE CORNER!
Talib Bari: Hades the Hellraiser takes a few steps before running and connecting with a big boot to Lucas Johnson at the corner! Lucas falls into a seated position at the corner! HADES CONNECTS WITH SOME MOUNTED CORNER PUNCHES ON LUCAS! HADES GETS LUCAS BACK UP TO HIS FEET BEFORE GETTING HIM INTO POSITION AND CONNECTING WITH A TILT-A-WHIRL SIDE SLAM! RIGHT THERE, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GOOD CHANCE TO GET THE FIRST PIN FALL OF THE MATCH; HOWEVER, THIS IS A LAST MAN STANDING MATCH! HADES GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET BEFORE BOUNCING HIMSELF OFF THE ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH A LEG DROP! ALL 325 POUNDS OF HADES THE HELLRAISER JUST LANDED ON LUCAS JOHNSON! THAT HAS GOT TO HURT, STEW AND FLANN. HADES RISES BACK TO HIS FEET! It seems to me that his main strategy going into this match is to weaken Lucas and hope that he will stay down in the end! Not a bad approach, but Albert Hitchman plays a factor in this match and will do anything to shift this match into his client’s favor! Hades gets himself up as Lucas tries to find his way to his knees, but he doesn’t get much breathing time as Hades connects with a low dropkick on Lucas! Lucas gets knocked to his back, but Hades manages to pick him up!
Stew-O: Hades the Hellraiser gets the bear hug on Lucas Johnson! That has got to hurt! Hades is applying the pressure as Lucas is trying out in pain! That is one hug I wouldn’t love to be a part of! Hades tightens his grip on Lucas Johnson. Either Lucas tries to find a way out of this bear hug or he fades away! Fading away from this move will be beneficially to Hades and it would get him the victory in this match!
Flannery McCoy: Albert Hitchman is on the ring apron! Albert is trying to have an exchange with Hades the Hellraiser as he has not taken his attention off Lucas Johnson! Hades still has the bear hug on Lucas! HADES HOLDS LUCAS TO HIS SIDE — A HUGE BIG BOOT TO ALBERT HITCHMAN AS HE GOES FLYING OFF THE APRON AND TO RINGSIDE! THE CROWD IS STANDING UP ON THEIR FEET, BUT HADES IS NOT DONE THERE! HE GETS LUCAS UP IN A MILITARY PRESS AND THROWS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE ON ALBERT! BOTH LUCAS AND ALBERT ARE DOWN AT THE MOMENT! IT LOOKS LIKE THE OFFICIAL WILL BEGIN HIS COUNT!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Talib Bari: Lucas Johnson is mustering up some strength to get back to his feet! Hades the Hellraiser sees that and rebounds from the ropes! Over the top rope suicide plancha! That was a mouthful and Lucas Johnson got every bit of it! It seems like that one spot took out Hades as well! The official looks like he is going to begin his count again!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Stew-O: Both Hades the Hellraiser and Lucas Johnson are trying to rise back to their feet! The first one up will most likely take control of the match! Slowly, both men make it back to their feet! Lucas throws a punch at Hades as he stumbles, but Hades delivers a huge uppercut to Lucas as he goes back! Lucas with a punch and Hades with an uppercut! Lucas! Hades! Lucas! Hades! Lucas! Hades! These two men are throwing everything they have at one another, but Hades delivers one last European uppercut as that floors Lucas! Lucas is checking his jaw to see if he can move it properly! Hades manages to go near the timekeeper’s area before getting a steel chair! He holds the steel chair before slamming it shut as he goes to Lucas, who is at all fours! HADES PREPARES TO SWING THE STEEL CHAIR! THE STEEL CHAIR SLAMS AGAINST THE SPINE OF LUCAS! LUCAS IS YELLING OUT IN PAIN AS THAT DOES NOT STOP HADES FROM HAVING THE DESIRE TO INFLICT AS MUCH PAIN AS POSSIBLE! ANOTHER STEEL CHAIR SHOT TO LUCAS’ SPINE! LUCAS FINDS HIMSELF ON HIS BACK BEFORE HADES DRIVES THE EDGE OF THE STEEL CHAIR AGAINST LUCAS’ SPINE! LUCAS’ CRY OF PAIN GETS LOUDER AS HADES HOLDS THE STEEL CHAIR UP AS HE LOOKS THAT HE IS GOING FOR ANOTHER SWING —
Flannery McCoy: Albert Hitchman is like Swiper the Fox and swipes that steel chair from Hades the Hellraiser’s grasp! I think that may be a mistake as Hades turns himself around to face Albert! Albert has a look of regret on his face! He is pleading for Hades to show him mercy — Lucas Johnson takes advantage of the situation, but swiping the left leg of Hades as he knocks him to a seated position! Lucas is in all fours as Albert Hitchman helps his client back to his feet! ALBERT HANDS LUCAS THE SAME STEEL CHAIR THAT HADES USED TO ATTACK LUCAS WITH AS LUCAS HAS A SMIRK ON HIS FACE! LUCAS GETS THE STEEL CHAIR AND PLACES IT IN FRONT OF HIM! LUCAS GETS HADES BACK UP TO HIS FEET! I THINK THAT LUCAS HAS HADES IN POSITION FOR THAT SKULL CRUSHING FINALE! THE FULL-NELSON FACEBUSTER ON HADES THE HELLRAISER! HADES GOES PLANTING ON FACE FIRST ON THAT STEEL CHAIR! LUCAS IS ON HIS KNEES AS HE SMIRKS BEFORE GETTING HIMSELF BACK TO HIS FEET! LUCAS AND ALBERT ARE DEMANDING FOR THE OFFICIAL TO BEGIN HIS COUNT!
Referee: ONE! TWO!
Talib Bari: Hades the Hellraiser is still flat face first on that steel chair. I don’t see Hades moving whatsoever and if I were Lucas Johnson and Albert Hitchman, I would be very happy right now! This may be the biggest victory that Lucas will get in his entire career! A victory over a Hall of Famer such a Hades should be impressive!
Referee: THREE! FOUR!
Stew-O: If Hades the Hellraiser does not get himself up by the count of ten, this would be a huge victory for Lucas Johnson! Albert Hitchman is patting Lucas on the back! He is encouraging Lucas and build the young man’s confidence!
Referee: FIVE! SIX!
Flannery McCoy: Wait a minute? It seems like Hades the Hellraiser is scrambling to his feet! This man took a Skull Crushing Finale to a steel chair! How is Hades still managing to find some way to keep moving? The official is stopping his count as Hades manages to get back to his feet! Hades is wobbly on his feet; however, he is on his feet! Lucas Johnson is looking at Hades with a wave of shock in his face! He was so confident that the move was going to be enough to keep Hades down, but just like I said earlier in this match, Hades is refusing to stay down!

Flannery: You’ve got to admit Talib, that conchairto he delivered to Darkane could have inflicted some real, long term, damage, and he couldn’t have cared less!

( “Talk Up” by Drake and Jay Z blasts across the speakers. )
Stephie: Ladies and Gentlemen here are your winners, ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION THERON NIKOLAS, AND MR. DEDEDE… THE OOOOONNNNNNEEEEE PPPPEEEEERRRRRCCCEEENNNNTTTT!!!
Talib: What a brutal battle! I cannot believe everything we have seen here tonight! The One Percent hanging on to settle this match, and I hope this is the end of it because if these four go any further someone is end up crippled!
Stew: OH NO… NO DAMN IT NO.. YOU SPOKE TOO SOON BARI, BECAUSE DDD ISN’T FINISHED, DDD IS TOSSING STEEL CHAIRS INTO THE RING!
Flannery: Come on! Why now?! The match is already over!
Stew: THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT FLANNERY, IT’S NEVER ENOUGH FOR DDD, THE MAN NEVER KNOWS WHEN TO STOP… OH MY GOODNESS LOOK AT THIS, DDD SLIDES A CHAIR TO THERON, ENTERS THE RING HIMSELF AND JUST BEGINS WAILING ON RYAN WILSON WITH CHAIR SHOTS HAMMERED INTO HIS BODY OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!
Flannery: BUT LOOK WHO’S ARRIVED! IT’S JASON MCKORMICK! JASON MCKORMICK COMES STORMING DOWN THE RAMP AND INTO THE RING! HE TAKES THERON DOWN WITH A SUPERMAN PUNCH! NOW HE CHARGES AT DDD AND LEVELS HIM WITH A DROPKICK, GETTING HIM TANGLED UP ON THE RING ROPES! MCKORMICK FOLLOWS UP THE ASSAULT, AND IS SWINGING WILDLY, RIGHTS AND LEFTS LIGHTING DDD UP, AND DDD TRYING TO FIGHT BACK —
Stew: BUT THERON TURNS MCKORMICK AROUND!!!! SUPERKICK!!!!!! AND DDD TAKES OFF!!!!! SPEAR!!!!!!!
Flannery: It was bound to happen, the odds were not in McKormick’s favor…… Oh Jesus, now look at Theron, Theron is kneeling over Jason McKormick with a cheshire cat-like grin, and is SLIPPING MCKORMICK’S HEAD IN BETWEEN THE FOLDS OF A STEEL CHAIR, AND IS CALLING FOR DDD’S ATTENTION! DDD TURNS OVER WITH A MANIC LOOK, SPOTS HIS PREY IN SIGHT, AND JUST A SPLIT SECOND OF EYE CONTACT BETWEEN HE AND THERON TELLS A WHOOOOLE STORY…. DDD TAKES THE STEEL CHAIR IN HIS HANDS NOW AND IS HEADING OVER TO THE RING APRON!
Stew: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!
( The nervous audience is on their feet while DEDEDE begins climbing the turnbuckle with the steel chair underneath his arm. )
Flannery: DDD IS PULLING OUT ALL THE STOPS, THIS IS HORRIFIC! SOMEBODY’S GOING TO STOP HIM, RIGHT???
Stew: HE CAN’T BE STOPPED FLANNERY, THIS HAS BEEN THE PROBLEM ALL SEASON LONG, THIS MAN IS COMPLETELY BEYOND REPROACH AND HE IS SOMEHOW EVEN MORE SADISTIC FROM BEFORE!
Talib: DDD PERCHED UP AT THE TOP TURNBUCKLE… LOOKING FOR A WINGS OF HELL!!!!!! THAT WILL SNAP JASON MCKORMICK’S NECK! DON’T DO THIS!!!
( The screen flashes footage of a trail of bodies consisting of the DDD Task Force, and members of arena security, laid out across the arena entrance gates separating the backstage loading dock from the inside of the Prudential Center. We see a bloody crowbar, and a bloody black baseball bat on the floor to accompany the trail of bodies. )
( The audience becomes unglued. )
Stew: EREBUS!!! DARKANE!!! BOTH MEN COME BARRELLING INTO THE RING FROM THE CROWD! DARKANE DRAGS DDD OFF THE TOP ROPE, AND EREBUS HAS THERON IN THE CORNER TRADING RAPID FIRE FISTS!!! DDD SCRAMBLES UP TO HIS FEET — AND HE’S TAKEN BACK DOWN BY A LOU THESZ PRESS FROM DARKANE!!! HE IS UNLEASHING HELL ON THE EAW CHAIRMAN!!! DDD CAN BARELY DEFEND HIMSELF!!!
Talib: DDD KICKS DARKANE OFF WITH HIS LEGS, ATTEMPTS TO RECOVER, AND DELIVERS A SPEAR!!!!!!!!! BUT DARKANE SIDESTEPS IT, DDD RUNS IN FRONT OF HIM AND BUMPS INTO THE CORNER, AND DARKANE TAKES OFF!!!!!! DEVIL!!!!!! MAY!!!!!!! CRY!!!!!!!!!!! DDD DRILLED THROUGH WITH THE SPEAR TO THE SPINE, HE TURNS AROUND, STINGER SPLASH FROM EREBUS!!! EREBUS TAKES HIM OUT OF THE CORNER, LOOKING FOR PITCH BLACK!!! SCORPION DEATH DROP ON HIS WAY???
Stew: SUPERKICK FROM THERON!!! THAT BLASTS EREBUS ACROSS THE JAW, BUT EREBUS IS LEANED OVER THE ROPES AND STILL STANDING! DARKANE TURNS THERON INSIDE OUT WITH THE ROLLING LARIAT!!!! MOTHER OF GOD!!!
Talib: AND NOW DARKANE AND EREBUS ARE PICKING UP STEEL CHAIRS, WITH EREBUS A BIT SLUGGISH AFTER THE SUPERKICK BUT STILL DRIVEN TO FIGHT — WHAT THE HELL?!?!
( Three individuals wearing all black tactical gear and diamond studded masks with occult symbolism on it enter the ring. Two of them begin swarming Darkane with attacks, and one of them levels Erebus with a low blow. )
Flannery: WHAT IS GOING ON???
Stew: THESE THREE MASKED INDIVIDUALS JUST STORMED THE RING LOOKING LIKE MEMBERS OF DDD’S TASK FORCE, AND ONE OF THEM HAS JUST BROUGHT EREBUS TO HIS KNEES WITH AN UPPERCUT TO THE GROIN FROM BEHIND! AND TAKES HIM OUT WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE TEMPLE!
Talib: THE TWO ON ONE ASSAULT CONTINUES ON DARKANE, AND YOU CAN TELL THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE FEMALES, BUT WE HAVE NO IDEA WHO THE HELL THEY ARE!
Flannery: Darkane is trying to fight! He’s delivering punches back and forth and trying to absorb as many blows as they can — but he’s taken down by a chop block to the knee! And a SHINING WIZARD ACROSS THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE!!! The third masked assailant is at ringside now, and she flips up the apron to reveal…….. NO WAY….
( The masked assailant pulls out a barbed wire baseball bat, with the words “Negan Style” written across the handle, and she slowly creeps into the ring with it. )
Flannery: WAIT A SECOND… OH DON’T TELL ME!
Stew: THE ASSAILANT SWINGS FOR THE FENCES, AND TAKES DARKANE’S HEAD OFF WITH A FULL SWING SHOT ACROSS THE HEAD!!!!!! MOTHER OF GOD!!!!
Flannery: YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME… NOT THEM..
( The three assailants pull their masks off…. revealing themselves to be The Queens Court. )
Stew: AMBER KEYS!!!! CLEOPATRA!!! MADISON KALINE!!!!
Talib: THE FUCKING QUEEN’S COURT?!?!
Stew: AMBER AND CLEOPATRA BRING RYAN WILSON BACK TO HIS FEET, AND MADISON HOLDS THAT BARBED WIRE BAT LIKE IT’S A HOCKEY PUCK……….. SHE TEE’S OFF!!!!!!!!
Talib: RIGHT BETWEEN THE LEGS!!!!!!!! SHIT!!!!!! SHIT!!!!! OH MY GOD!!!!! OH MY FUCKING GOD RYAN’S DEAD!!!!!!!
( Ryan Wilson collapses to the floor holding his groin after a full force barbed wire bat shot, and Theron Nikolas is in the corner with blood dripping down his jaw, laughing his head off. )
Flannery: SO THIS WAS THE EXPANSION THAT THERON NIKOLAS WAS TALKING ABOUT…
Stew: PLEASE GOD THIS CAN’T BE TRUE, THIS CAN’T SERIOUSLY BE HAPPENING!
( Amber and Madison help an incapacitated Mr. DEDEDE up to his feet, allowing him to use their shoulders as support, while Cleopatra hands Theron Nikolas his Answers World Championship and joins him in celebration. )
Talib: IT’S HAPPENING, STEW. IT’S TRUE, THE QUEENS COURT AND THE 1% HAVE BECOME ONE!
( Shaker Jones is recovering, and Amber Keys takes the barbed wire bat from Madison Kaline before approaching him. )
Stew: FULL!!! FORCE!!! SHOT!!!! BARBED WIRE BAT SLAMMED INTO THE RIBS OF SHAKER JONES, AND JONES FALLS ON HIS FACE SLUMPED OVER, WITH THE WIND KNOCKED RIGHT OUT OF HIM!
Talib: AND THERE’S NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO ABOUT IT.
( DDD takes a knee still recuperating from harm, and the rest of The New 1% stand tall with smiles on their faces, while Theron Nikolas raises his Answers World Championship high in the air much to the dismay of the capacity crowd in the Prudential Center. The feed progressively fades to black. )
