(EAW Intro Plays)
( Friday Night Dynasty’s theme music plays as the show begins. Camera opens to an empty ring as fans of EAW are cheering their asses off. The MetLife Dome in Saitama, Japan is rocking and the fans are going wild as the show begins. The camera pans around and in the crowd are signs saying things like “EMPIRE LIVES FOREVER”’,“DEDEDE IS THE DEDEDEVIL!”, “CONOR IS GONNA HUNT YOU”. We see the trio of Dynasty announcers as the show begins.)
Flannery McCoy: WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN TO FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY! I’m here with Stew-O and Talib Bari and we have a lot to show you all as the ramifications of a historic and controversial Gateway to Glory helps guide us to an all time great Pain for Pride event for not just Dynasty stars but all EAW talent!
Stew-O: Well, you aren’t biting you tongue with that statement! Pain for Pride is the pinnacle of professional wrestling and sports entertainment and though Theron Nikolas May be heading to this years PFP still Answer’s World Champion, he will face his stiffest competition to leave PFP still the champ!
Talib Bari: The God Emperor is going to face the Grand Rampage winner Jamie O’Hara, the man he won this belt from many months ago in Darkane, and the returning GAWD himself Mr. Dedede and I’m betting my money that this will be one for the history books!
Stew-O: You know that’s not all coming from the Dynasty side of things! The Flobros defeated Khan and Johnson to earn a spot at Pain for Pride and Bowie Grey is one of two Dynasty talents that will be entering this year’s Cash in the Vault ladder matches!
Flannery McCoy: The next entrant will be decoded here tonight as Ryan Wilson and Lucas Johnson both look to turn Gateway to Glory losses to Pain for Pride success!
Talib Bari: We also have a main event between Mr Dedede and Bowie Grey live tonight for all to witness and-
( “Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA [EAW Edit] plays, and Jamie O’Hara walks out to the stage dressed in his usual in-ring attire and a “Light In The Darkness” custom T-shirt from EAWshop.com. O’Hara looks around at the 10,000 fans packed into the sold out arena, and continues his way down the ramp. )
Stew-O: HOLD THAT THOUGHT, TALIB! LOOKS LIKE THE ACE IS ON HIS WAY TO THE RING!
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome the 2019 GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER, JAAAAMMIEEEEEEEEEE OOOOO’HARRRRAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
Stew-O: With his eyes fixed on that illuminated Pain for Pride symbol hanging in the rafters, Jamie O’Hara’s sights are set for the weekend of June 21st — a weekend that without question will have implications towards not just this young man’s career, but EAW history as we know it.
Flannery McCoy: Jamie knows good and well that he is walking into this year’s Pain for Pride with an opportunity, and considering who he’s going into Pain for Pride facing, this isn’t simply just an opportunity to leave Atlanta, Georgia as the Answers World Champion! A win like this at a stage like this could very well solidify Jamie O’Hara as the greatest Elitist in the HISTORY of this company! The hurdle has become so much higher, meaning the reward has equally become that much greater for the Hall of Famer and 2019 Grand Rampage winner.
( O’Hara takes center stage in the ring as he wields a microphone in hand and waits for the chants of “JAMIE!” to quiet down. )
Jamie O’Hara: I could stand here, I could complain ’till the cows come home, I could piss and moan about the changing conditions for the match that I earned against Theron Nikolas for the Answers World Championship at Pain for Pride. And I’d be justified for carrying around every grievance.
( O’Hara flashes a sly grin, if only for a moment, before returning to seriousness. )
Jamie: Thing is.. I never signed on the dotted line to compete in the “Land of fairness”, my pay stubs in the mail do not come by way of the “Land of equal opportunity”, this is the land of the ELITE. And I see no greater opportunity than to take three flogs; talented flogs, extraordinary flogs, dare I say elite flogs, and dropkick three cunts into the fucking sea at Pain for Pride.
( The crowd loses it, moved by Jamie’s arrogant confidence. )
Jamie: The Answers World Championship is the only World Title belt in this company that I haven’t won yet. Theron Nikolas, Darkane, and Mr. DEDEDE himself are the only three lads I haven’t beat yet. Singles, fatal four way, it doesn’t matter. I don’t see “odds”. If I were fazed by “odds” I would have never reached this stage to begin with. Odds are, I should have never made it to the EAW Hall of Fame. Odds are, I should have never made it back from the brutality that I’ve suffered in my career — let alone make it back even stronger than before. The advantage certainly wasn’t mine when I stepped into battle with 29 other men with ambition and my bloody damned fists. And yet it didn’t matter. The odds have never in my life been at my favor, and that is why I succeed.
I succeed in SPITE of the odds, I succeed despite all conventional wisdom–
( “Talk Up” by Drake and Jay-Z hits. The fans jump out of their seats, and Mr. DEDEDE walks out through the billowing smoke wearing shades and a bomber jacket over a black shirt that reads “I Don’t Watch Marvel.” All of the men cheer him and all the women and children in the audience boo him. )
Talib Bari: HERE WE GO!
( As Stew-O narrates we get a visual flashback to the results of Gateway To Glory. )
Stew-O: For the first time since March 15th, Mr. DEDEDE steps into the ring on Friday Night Dynasty, this time in a much different situation than before. Last time DDD was seen on Friday Nights he was still a member of The 1%, but now The 1% is virtually extinct! As of Gateway To Glory, Mr. DEDEDE unleashed an attack first deliberately costing Darkane the Answers World Championship during a crucial moment of the Theron vs Darkane contest. Then following the bout DDD would get an assist from AMBER KEYS, giving way to a thunderous spear which left the Answers World Champion Theron Nikolas reeling!
( Return back to the arena, where DDD is stepping into the ring. )
Flannery McCoy: Well I’m not particularly thrilled to see this man after what he’s done this week. I’m still in disbelief that Empire is closing down! I poured my heart and soul into making that show work out all for it to be stomped on and thrown out like yesterday’s news.
Talib Bari: That’s nice and all Flanny but The Gawd is requesting a microphone! Better keep quiet before you end up getting thrown out like yesterday’s news too :lupe:
( DDD’s music dies down as he stands across from Jamie O’Hara, grinning and smacking the gum in his mouth. It occurs to the both of them that this is their first time staring down on EAW Television, and the sound of the raucous audience causes a momentary standoff. )
Mr. DEDEDE: Jamie O’Hara…
( DDD extends his hand for a handshake. )
DDD: Truly a pleasure
Jamie: The pleasure’s all yours. You’ve got some fucking balls even showing your face around me after what you spent the season doing to my family.
DDD: (rolling eyes) “Family”, as if any of it even matters. You know what Jamie, I’ve watched you your whole career. Your entire career! You know that? From the first day of your New Breed Championship run, to the last day of your history making World Heavyweight Championship reign. I saw your career span multiple years, multiple regimes, and yet this is the first time you and I have ever truly gotten to interact face to face, man to man. Do you know why that is?
Jamie: Clue me in.
DDD: Because I didn’t respect you. And guess what? I still don’t respect you. I give you all the credit in the world as an athlete, but I don’t respect you as a man.
Jamie: (laughing) Thanks for the seal of approval sir, it’s just a bit rich coming from you… considering you’re the lowest form of scum on the planet, “boss”.
DDD: You’re right. When it comes to the conventional code of ethics, when it comes to the golden rule, I am the worst. The lowest of the low. I shouldn’t be talking. I am a scummy piece of trash on the side of the street, when it comes to morals. But do you also know what I am? Something you’re not… something you’re so close to becoming, but something you’ll never be. I am the greatest.
I’m the greatest, and it isn’t even a discussion. Not only is it not a discussion, but following Pain for Pride 12 that statement is going to become mathematical fact. I’m going to take away everything from Theron, and I’m going to deny you of everything you have ever dreamed about. And I can do that… because I don’t give a fuck about family. (turns to the crowd) Just like I don’t give a fuck about what YOU want, just like I don’t give a fuck about what you like–
( The boos from the crowd drown him out for a moment. The noise eventually relents, allowing him to speak. )
DDD: Your loyalty to your “family” almost cost you everything. I will never in my life have that problem. I could give a damn about loyalty, or morality, or political correctness. In chapter four of my book “GAWDVERBS: A Machiavellian’s Guide To Un-Fucking Yourself”, available for pre-order TOMORROW NOON PACIFIC TIME BY THE WAY, I state it best: It is better, in all pursuits, to win – than it is to be morally correct. That’s just the fundamental truth about life that so many of you mortals fail to understand even when you reach heights like Jamie O’Hara. But unfortunately you are destined to face this truth the hard way Jamie–
Jamie: Yeah, you don’t care about loyalty, everyone who’s ever watched a second of EAW knows that to be true as gospel around here. But it’s funny how… magically, you’ve only begun to care about loyalty when it’s your own mate, Theron, stabbing you in the back. Have you ever even bothered to ask yourself why he’s done it? Of course you can state the obvious, 1) He’s a gutless weasel, 2) He’s been conditioned under the tutelage of a gutless weasel, namely you. But the third reason is the most important reason, because it actually defines your existence here.
DDD: Oh YOU get to define my existence?
Jamie: Nah, you’ve defined it yourself. This is your bed to lie in. You wear the t-shirts, the “Gawdzilla”, the “greatest of all time”. You’ve propped yourself as the supposed king of this castle. The thing about being this great big dragon, this “Gawdzilla” that you portray yourself as, is that it puts this target on your back. And you’ve been stomping around EAW 11 years now completely unfucked with a target that could be seen even by a lowly young lad from Australia. And I’ve made it all this way to the pinnacle, to the mountain top, to the main event of Pain for Pride… because on the weekend of June 21st… I slay the dragon.
( DDD removes his sunglasses, and he and Jamie stare down
???: No. I will.
( Darkane walks out through the curtain with a shovel in hand, and the crowd roars in applause as he makes his brisk walk down the ramp. )
Darkane: I don’t have a problem with you Jamie, I ain’t here to be a thorn in your side, but If anyone is going to give that piece of shit the beating 11 years in the making, it’s going to be me. The motherfucker has cost me World Championships, months of my career, and unlike you Jamie that last thing I could give two squirting shits about is ‘legacy’. I’m not coming for anybody’s legacy, I’m coming for that asshole’s scrawny fucking neck. Not only am I going to slay the “dragon”, but I’m going to take his estranged ex-proteges head and put them both on a fucking spike. And I’m not talking about at Pain for Pride, I’m talking about RIGHT FUCKING NOW.
( Darkane is set to enter the ring, but DDD does a ‘wrap it up’ expression with his hands and arena security jumps over the barricade to hold Darkane off from entering the ring. )
Darkane: This the best you got for me? Stooges?
DDD: That isn’t for my security you clown, that’s for YOUR security. Your ugly mug is already on Pain for Pride 12 posters and billboards around the world, unfortunately I’ve got a main event to promote with you on it – thanks to the board. But I swear to God Darkane, I swear to fucking GOD, If you even so much as step foot in this ring, all of it’s in jeopardy, because I WILL RIP YOUR THROAT OUT WHERE YOU STAND.
Darkane: Yeah??? Prove it.
Stew-O: DARKANE SWINGS HIS SHOVEL INTO THE HEAD OF THE FIRST ARENA SECURITY MEMBER! ANOTHER SWING TAKES THE NEXT SECURITY GUARD DOWN! AND THE OTHER GUARDS CLEAR THE WAY AFTER A WILD SWING FROM DARKANE! DARKANE RUSHES INTO THE RING, SALIVATING AT THE OPPORTUNITY OF REVENGE!
Talib Bari: DDD BACKING UP NEXT TO JAMIE… DARKANE ENTERS… AND DDD SHOVES JAMIE AT DARKANE, KNOCKING THEM BOTH INTO EACH OTHER! NOW HE CHARGES AT DARKANE, LETTING OFF A FLURRY OF RIGHTS AND LEFTS! DARKANE OVERWHELMED AFTER BEING CAUGHT OFF GUARD BY THE DIVERSION! DARKANE TRYING TO BATTLE BACK, HE’S BACKING DDD UP NOW WITH SOME BLOWS TO THE BODY — BUT DDD TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE!
Flannery McCoy: SLINGBLADE!!!!!! JAMIE O’HARA TAKES DEDEDE DOWN TO THE FLOOR! DDD RECOVERS, AND JAMIE TAKES HIM BACK DOWN AGAIN WITH A THESZ PRESS! DDD COVERING UP, TAKING THE BRUNT OF A FURIOUS ONSLAUGHT FROM O’HARA, WHO CLEARLY DIDN’T LIKE BEING SHOVED INTO DARKANE’S WAY JUST EARLIER!
Talib Bari: DDD trying to fight from the floor but Jamie is UNLOADING! Just going for the jugular! And it’s hard to blame him, he said it loud and clear, he has been chasing the bullseye on DDD’s back for his entire career and now that his mark is in plain sight, he’s coming in for the–
Stew-O: DARKANE SHOVES JAMIE O’HARA OFF OF HIM! DARKANE, PERHAPS UPSET BY THE COLLISION WITH JAMIE EARLIER, TAKES OVER THE ONSLAUGHT AND BEGINS PUMMELING DDD WITH HIS OWN BARRAGE OF PUNCHES! DDD JUST TRYING TO COVER UP TO THE BEST OF HIS ABILITIES AND WHETHER THE STORM… NOW DARKANE DRAGS DDD UP BY HIS HAIR, SCREAMING IN HIS FACE —
Talib Bari: IN EXCELSIS!!!!!!! RIGHT TO THE JAW!!! DARKANE DROPS TO THE GROUND HOLDING HIS JAW STUNNED, JAMIE O’HARA WASN’T GOING TO TAKE BEING RAGDOLLED EARLIER! JAMIE GOING BACK AFTER DDD, BUT DDD SLIPS FROM HIS GRASP, RUNS THE ROPES, SPEAR!!!!!!!!!!! RIPPING THROUGH O’HARA!!!!!!!
Stew-O: DDD STANDING OVER JAMIE O’HARA TALKING TRASH!!!!
Talib Bari: LOOK OUT!!!! HE’S TURNED AROUND!!!! FROM BEHIND!!!! SUPERKICK!!!!! SUPERKICK FROM THERON!!! BUT DDD JUST ATE THAT! HE JUMPS RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET, VEINS PROTRUDING FROM HIS HEAD, ANOTHER ONE!!!! THE GOD-EMPEROR WITH ANOTHER FLUSH SUPERKICK, TAKING THE GAWD DOWN! HOLY HELL!
( Theron Nikolas stands alone as his three Pain for Pride opponents writhe on the floor. )
Flannery McCoy: You’ve got to give the devil his due. Theron Nikolas struck when the moment presented itself, and what a statement he has made already because of it!
Stew-O: That’s a visual that tells 1000 words you guys. Say what you will about the Answers World Champion, but at Pain for Pride it doesn’t really matter who fights the hardest, or displays the most skill, it’s all about who’s standing last; and we have seen this season time and time again where it’s that young man right there who has consistently been the last man standing.
Talib Bari: It’s part of the reason why he’s en route to being the longest reigning Answers World Champion of all time, and why if he leaves Pain for Pride still champion, he’ll be leaving Pain for Pride the GREATEST.
( Theron exits the ring with a confident smile on his face while Darkane is sitting in the corner holding his jaw, Jamie O’Hara is at ringside holding his ribs, and Mr. DEDEDE is on the floor hunched over with blood trickling down his mouth and a crazed look on his eyes. We cut from this exciting opening segment to a not so exciting commercial for Dallas Houston’s Texas Steaks! A steak company that sells steaks to you door to door. I doubt this last long. We return from break to see Stephie Love in the ring looking fabulous.)
Stephie Love: The following contest is set for one fall! Introducing first….
(‘OCTiV’ by Fatality begins to play as Ronan walks his way down to the ring with a purpose scowling at fans intimidating fans sitting in their seats as he rolls his way in the ring he climbs to the middle rope and lets out a war cry.)
Flannery McCoy: The Cut Throat cuts an imposing figure and is fresh of the mayhem of the Cash in the Vault qualifier at Gateway to Glory, looking to face off against one of his opponents from that match, he’s starting to turn a lot of heads with his work!
Stephie Love: From Cape Town, South Africa, weighing in at 230 pounds…’The JuggerNaunt’ Ronan Malosi!
(Ronan lets out yet another battle cry as the crowd showers him with boos.)
Stephie Love: Introducing his opponent…
(‘DEVIL’ by Shinedown plays as Jason McKormick enters the arena, the crowd cheering his arrival.)
Talib Bari: How can the crowd cheer a guy who calls himself ‘The Psycho’? How does that make sense?
Stew-O: Nicknames aside, Jason has gone a long way toward proving himself someone worthy of the crowd’s praise. He’s challenged for the Answers World title, had a strong showing in the King of Elite tournament, and fought the 1%. The fans like who they like, Bari, you know that.
Stephie Love: From Jackson Michigan, weighing in at 235 pounds…’JayMac’ Jason McKormick!
(Jason climbs the middle turnbuckle, raising both arms.)
Stew-O: LOOK OUT! RONAN RUSHES ACROSS THE RING AND BLINDSIDES JASON AS HIS BACK WAS TURNED!
(Stephie quickly exits the ring as the official calls for the bell.)
(DING DING DING!)
Stew-O: Ronan is continuing the assault on McKormick, landing heavy left hands on the head and shoulders of Jason. Malosi pulls Jason out of the corner and hooks his tights…big snap suplex, Ronan floats over and starts pummeling more! Jason is trying to scramble away from the assault, but Ronan is oppressive with his offense and doesn’t let up! The referee is warning Malosi on the use of closed fists, and he finally lets up, giving Jason a chance to scramble away!
Flannery McCoy: Ronan grins fiendishly at Jason as he starts to slowly stalk McKormick, who is pulling himself up in the corner…Ronan rushes in, but Jason intercepts with a quick kick to the gut that allows him to escape the corner and create some distance. McKormick follows through with a series of quick jabs that keep Ronan off balance, sound strategy here from Jason, who was absolutely just Pearl Harboured in the opening moments of this match here tonight, Jason with the Irish whip…big hip toss sends Malosi sprawling across the mat!
Talib Bari: Jason needs to stay on his man, though, Ronan will eat him alive otherwise! McKormick lands an elbow drop on the big man, then follows through with another. Ronan rolls to his side, shaking his head of the cobwebs. Jason lands a vicious stomp on the upper body of Ronan, trying to keep his opponent down, but Ronan makes it to his feet! Arm drag from Malosi, then another! Jason hits a dropkick, driving Ronan back, then lands a running head scissors!
Flannery McCoy: Ronan cartwheels out of the headscissors! Look at the agility of the big man! Jason doesn’t see him…BIG CLOTHESLINE! Jason is floored by Ronan, who grabs the wrist and pulls McKormick back to his feet…another big clothesline! Another! McKormick is being battered here! Ronan pulls Jason to his feet once again….Jason ducks! He has Ronan in a ripcord position…bicycle knee strike! Ronan is stunned! Jason hits the ropes and this time lands the headscissors takedown! Ronan is already making his way back to his feet, though, and Jason is there to meet him with a European Uppercut! Ronan stumbles back to the ropes…he comes back with a wacky line, and Jason is on the mat!
Stew-O: He pulls McKormick to his feet and scoops him up, what could he be thinking here…HE LANDS A STANDING MOONSAULT! Look at that slam! Ronan with the pin attempt here…
Referee: ONE! TWO!
Stew-O: Kickout from McKormick! Ronan seems to almost growl at Jason, but pulls his opponent to his feet and whips him to the ropes…big sidewalk slam, Jason is flattened! Ronan stalks Jason while winding up his arm, could be looking to end things here….ICEPICK! The Bullhammer has laid Jason out! He’s not moving on the mat!
Flannery McCoy: Ronan rolls Jason over…MOLI! The Coquina CLutch is locked in! Jason is frantic, he’s just out of reach for the ropes…he taps! Jason taps!
(DING DING DING!)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, your winner by submission…The Cut THroat…RRRRROOOOOOOONNNNNNAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNN MMMMMAAAAAAAALLLLLLLOOOOOSSSSSSSIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!
Talib Bari: Great win from Ronan here tonight! He started strong and Jason never really had much of a chance to recover! This man could end up being the future of this brand!
(We cut to a break where we see an ad for Mark Michaels and Kinkos. Mark is seen using copiers to make up anti EAW pamphlets and what not. Dynasty returns from commercial and cuts to Stephie, who is standing front and center in the ring. The beautiful ring announcer has a bright smile across her face as she raises up the microphone.)
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDERS FOR THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS… THE FLOBROS!!!!
(“I Don’t Fuck With You” by Big Sean featuring E40 hits the PA system and the FloBros walk out from behind the guerilla curtains to an absolutely thunderous ovation.)
Flannery McCoy: Ladies and gentlemen, last weekend at Gateway to Glory, the Bros managed to shock the world and defeat the team of Lucas Johnson and Feral Khan to earn a Unified Tag Team Championship match at Pain for Pride!
Talib Bari: I’m not sure if it was all that shocking, Flannery! The Bros came into EAW with one purpose in mind and that was to become Tag Team Champions. As a team AND on their own, they have proven that they can hang with anyone in this company.
Stew-O: And their ability to brush off setbacks without being phased just goes without saying. Crosby Carter and Thadd Blazevich both have bright futures here in Elite Answers Wrestling, and honestly, it wouldn’t shock me to see them walk out of Atlanta with those belts that The Wildcards currently hold. The Bros consistently defy the odds and I’m not going to bet against them right now.
(Thadd, Crosby, and Carsyn get into the ring and each Bro takes a turnbuckle. They hype up the crowd while Carsyn poses sexily against the ropes. After a few moments, all three meet in the middle of the ring. Stephie passes the microphone to Crosby and gets out of the ring, allowing the three New Jersey natives to have their moment in the spotlight.)
Crowd: BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO!
(Thadd, Crosby, and Carsyn bop their heads along to the chants of the crowd. They’re simply soaking up the atmosphere at the moment.)
Crosby Carter: It’s just like I said last week, BRO FOR PRIDE IS GUNNA BE LIT!!!!
(The crowd erupts at that.)
Crosby Carter: It must have been pretty embarrassing for Lucas Johnson to talk all that shit last week and come up short once again to two deathmatch Bros from Jersey. I mean after all, he is the all-american collegiate wrestler, and hey, Thadd and I grew up throwing each other off the roof into the swimming pool. I mean, the ‘wrestling machine’ and the ‘one man wrecking’ crew had their asses handed to them last week at Gateway Glory. Hitch got his clock cleaned by my perfect wife. The Bros dominated that contendership match and now we’re turning our attention to the biggest event of the year!
Crowd: BRO FOR PRIDE! BRO FOR PRIDE! BRO FOR PRIDE! BRO FOR PRIDE! BRO FOR PRIDE! BRO FOR PRIDE!
Crosby Carter: Hell yeah. I know I’ve said this before, and in fact both of us have (Crosby motions to Thadd), but I never imagined I would end up here. This has been a dream for me, and it goes without saying. This is the biggest wrestling company in the world and EAW is literally the endgame for every single person who attends a training class with the goal of making a name for themselves in this business. It’s a big ass deal for the Bros to be going to Pain for Pride, because a year ago, neither of us could have pictured this scenario. In February of 2018, the three of us starting working for a place called The Factory. It wasn’t much and it didn’t last, but what The Factory did was provide us with a taste of what it meant to work for an actual promotion. The Jerzey Wrasslin’ Alliance will forever be our home, but Thadd and I knew we wanted more. Our journey from The Factory lead us to Spectacular Championship Wrestling, and into a gauntlet match for their tag team championships last August. We came up short in that match, and we didn’t stay with that company, but what that did for us was put us on the map. We were able to work our way out of Jersey and compete in different areas, and that’s when EAW took notice of us. We got signed, and we have thrived. All our opponents see us as shit because we’ve never had formal training and like to have fun. But that doesn’t matter because our results speak for themselves. All of you amazing fans have rallied behind us and it’s because of you guys that we do what we do, and why we will never give up.
Crowd: BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO!
(Crosby hands the microphone over to Thadd, who has a huge grin on his face.)
Thadd Blazevich: BROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS!!!!
Crowd: BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO! BRO!
Thadd Blazevich: This is so sick, man. Look, I’ll never be the best with words, and there’s nothing I can say that is going to do justice to what I’m feeling right now. But knowing that Cros, Cars, and I are heading to Bro for Pride to compete for the championships we came here looking to grab, it just means a lot. A lot of you dudes know about the injury I suffered a few years ago, and when I started with The Factory, I wasn’t even really healed from it. I totally went against doctors’ orders and competed anyway, and I suffered because of it. No excuses because I’m not that kinda Bro, but the fact I’m even in a position to grab a championship for this company is indescribable. I leave my heart in this ring every time I compete and Bro for Pride will be no different. No matter what set of Bros have the belts after Voltage, whether it’s The Legion or The Wildcards, bet that we’ll be bringing those belts home after Br-
(“It Follows” by Cane Hill hits the PA system, cutting Thadd off. The Bro lowers the microphone and smirks as one-half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Xander Payne, walks through the curtains. Xander has a microphone in hand, as well as his belt with the tan straps, and he raises it in the air. His music fades and is immediately replaced by “Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi. Myles walks out next, microphone in one hand and tag team belt in the other. He also raises his championship up in the air. The Wildcards stand there united, staring down at the ring at the Bros. Carsyn has made her way to the ropes and is leaning over them, inviting the tag team champions to walk down to the ring. Xander gives her a disgusted look and shakes his head.)
Xander Payne: Cut the music, cut the music. First of all, there is no such thing as Bro for Pride. What even is that?
(Xander looks at Myles and shakes his head.)
Xander Payne: After Myles and myself easily and successfully defend our Unified Tag Team Championships on Voltage, our next title defense will come at Payne for Pride 2 featuring Myles.
(Myles rolls his eyes.)
Myles: We’re not even about to start that.
(Xander frowns at his partner.)
Myles: There is absolutely nothing personal between the five of us, and at PAIN FOR PRIDE there’s no doubt in my mind that a match between our two teams will end up stealing the show. I know you two will be quick to tout your longevity as a team, and want to use that to your advantage, but I’m telling you right now that Xander and I will be on the same page. On Sunday, we are going to have our second successful defense as a team and I know you three are going to have a front row seat for that match. I want you guys to watch how well we work together and how quickly we have gelled as a team. From Battleground, to King of Elite, to Grand Rampage… Xander and I have done it all together. I would even go as far as saying that we know each other probably as well as you two do. Xander has been my enemy, and he has been my partner, and we both know each other pretty damn well. We embody everything that a tag team should, and that’s not to discredit either of you because trust me, we’re not. But Xander and I are just as good, if not better, and that’s exactly why we are going to win on Sunday, and win again at Pain for Pride.
(The Bros look at one another and they shrug their shoulders.)
Thadd Blazevich: Dude I wouldn’t expect you to have any other attitude than a winning one, because that’s exactly what got you to this point. But the fact is, Cros and I are going into Bro for Pride with absolutely nothing to lose. There’s no doubt that you two won’t be the favorites. Myles, you were the most sought after prospect coming out of Battleground, and everyone already recognizes you as a future World Champion. I aint even mad about it because you really are a gnarly freakin’ competitor inside that ring. Xander has been the New Breed Champion and has competed for the world championship. Dude, you came close to winning that shit too. I watched that match and you were a legit bro in that ring that night against Noah. Cros and I know exactly who we’re gunna be stepping inside the ring with.
(Crosby takes the microphone.)
Crosby Carter: But that doesn’t mean you should automatically assume you’re going to win. Thadd and I have never been handed anything in this world, and we are more than willing to do the work and log the miles that it will take to beat you both and win those championships. We are going to have a good look at you two come Sunday night and without sounding like a biased fuck, I do hope it’s the two of you who emerge victorious on Voltage. My Bro and I want to be recognized as the best tag team in the world, and to do that, we both know that it needs to be The Wildcards that we face. We need to beat the future world champion and the former New Breed God, and that’s how we’ll both prove we’re deserving of those Unified Tag Team Championships.
Xander Payne: You’re going to have an uphill battle come Payne for Pride 2 featuring Myles. Last year, I capture championship gold on the big stage, so I know what it takes to win a career defining match when all the pressure in the world is on you. But trust me, there was no pressure greater than that I place on myself. I had to dig deep and fight with everything I had inside of me to take that New Breed Championship and usher in the era of the New Breed God last summer. I know that you’re both hungry. I know that you both want the belts Myles and I are holding. But I also want you both to know that no matter what you bring to the table at Payne for Pride 2 featuring Myles, it won’t be good enough to dethrone the two of us. So bring your weapons, your trash backgrounds, and whatever else you can think to bring, but do so with the knowledge that it’s not going to be enough. I know what it’s like to reach the highest of highs, and when championships are taken from you, all your momentum and all your clout goes with it. It’s hard to fight your way back up the ranks, and I won’t let myself experience that again. I’m not going to let Myles experience that.
Myles: The Wildcards stand here as a united force, ready and willing to go to war to protect what’s ours. This is my first ever Pain for Pride, just like it is for both of you, and I’m not leaving Atlanta with a loss.
Thadd Blazevich (Off Mic): I guess we’re gunna see, won’t we?
Myles: I guess we will.
(Myles lowers his microphone as “Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi hits the PA system. The Wildcards raise their championships in the air, while Xander points behind the Bros at the Pain for Pride sign. Both teams go back and forth with one another off mic, as Dynasty fades to a commercial break.)
Stephie Love: Our next match is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first…
(“Texas, Our Texas” as the crowd begins to immediately boo. Dallas Houston emerges with his cowboy hat on and his arms in the air as if he was collecting the nonexistent love from the audience.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, from Lubbock, Texas…weighing in at 275 pounds, DALLAS HOUUUUSTON!!
Stew-O: A newcomer to not just EAW but Dynasty, Dallas Houston made his debut on fight grid and is here to face off with another fairly new face in Connor Hunt.
Flannery McCoy: Both men are in for a chance to build a name for themselves and possibly make a big impact tonight.
Talib Bari: The fact this old guy thinks he’s a cowboy and doesn’t come out to Old Town Road is such a missed opportunity.
(Dallas Houston climbs in to the ring and continues raising his hands as the fans rain boos on to him and his theme music fades out.)
Stephie Love: AND HIS OPPONENT…
(“Party Poison” by My Chemical Romance hits and the fans get on their feet with anticipation. Out struts Connor Hunt, confident smirk on his face as he gives a slight nod to the crowd. He rubs his nose with his fist before taking his time and walking down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: From San Francisco, California by way of Melbourne, Australia, weighing in at 220 pounds, “THE KING OF THE HUNT”…CONNNNER HUUUUNT!!
Stew-O: Conor Hunt is a man with high potential and a big ceiling. Here on Dynasty he can make a spot for himself right away or fade away as quickly as he has shown up. Tonight could be a great showcase for his abilities and his style given he is the smaller man in this bout.
Flannery McCoy: Dont count out Dallas Houston! You know the saying goes, “DONT MESS WITH TEXAS!”
(Connor rolls under the bottom rope, gets to his feet, moves over to the nearby turnbuckle, and climbs it. As he stands perched on top, he spreads his arms wide and poses for the cameras. Connor hops down and turns to his opponent who removes his hat and stares him down. As his music fades out, the referee checks on both men and points to the ring side area.)
Flannery McCoy: The ref rings the bell and this match is on!
Talib Bari: IMMEDIATELY DALLAS HOUSTON SPRINTS AT CONNOR!
Stew-O: Hunt side steps Houston who runs right in to the turnbuckle chest first! I have no clue what Houston was thinking but Connor had the smarts to move before getting crushed by the 275 pound Texan. Hunt waits for Dallas to turn around before cracking him with left and right jabs to the face as Houston is trapped in the corner.
Talib Bari: Houston made a big mistake early but if he can just weather the storm then he may be able to find an opening. Connor grabs him by the wrist and Irish whips him to the opposite corner as Dallas Houston bounces spine first against that turnbuckle! As Dallas clutches his back with both hands, he has a face of agony and begins to stomp towards the center of the ring!
Stew-O: Hunt charges…RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! The big man eats he entire strike but is still on his feet! Dallas is wobbling as Connor looks him up and down! Connor runs to the opposite ring ropes, bounces off, charges Dallas and ANOTHER RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Dallas still is on his feet! Hunt tries again and bounces off the ropes and BAM!
Flannery McCoy: YAKUZA KICK TO THE FACE AS HOUSTON STANDS STILL BUT HE IS DEFINITELY OUT ON HIS FEET! Hunt shakes his head and then proceeds to kick Houston right in the gut.
Stew-O: He hooks him up…SNAP SUPLEX ON TO HIS BACK AS HOUSTON FINALLY GOES DOWN! Hunt gets up to his feet and begins stalking Dallas who looks like he wasn’t ready at all for this match! Houston gets to one knee, then to his feet as he has his back to his opponent…Connor Hunt attacks! CROSS OF THE HUNT! REVERSE STO DROPS DALLAS AGAIN!
Flannery McCoy: Hunt is in complete control as he helps the big fella up once again! Has Dallas got any offense in this match?
Stew-O: No and at this rate he may not because Connor Hunt has him in position!
Talib Bari: MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE!!!
Stew-O: SPINNING SIT OUT POWERBOMB CONNECTS AS DALLAS AUSTIN’S NESR 300LBS NEWRLY MAKES THE RING BUCKLE FROM THE IMPACT! Connor goes for the cover!
DING!! DING!! DING!!
Flannery McCoy: ITS OVER! Like that?!
Stew-O: What a dominator Connor Hunt was!
Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…CONNNOR HUNT!!!
Flannery McCoy: Dallas Houston was clearly outmatched at every turn of this short match! Connor Hunt used his speed to keep chipping away at Houston before ending this match with a spinning sit out Powerbomb!
Stew-O: Dallas Houston may have got hurt when he hit those turnbuckles or maybe he just wasn’t ready for the big lights! Either way, Connor Hunt was ready and showed it in this decisive win!
Talib Bari: Time for Dallas to hit that old town road and ride until he can’t no more!
Stew-O: Did…did we really need that reference?
Talib Bari: CROSS OVER MEDIA, STEW!
(Dynasty returns from break and cuts to backstage. Dynasty backstage correspondent, Michael Belfort, is standing by.)
Michael Belfort: As the EAW Universe knows, the men and women of Elite Answers Wrestling are well on their way to Atlanta for our yearly spectacle, Pain for Pride. Since Pain for Pride 4, there’s been one woman who’s found herself in either a championship match or some other big time contest. Ladies and gentlemen, that woman is my guest at this time, Cameron Ella Ava.
(The EAW Hall of Famer steps into the scene and flashes the camera a smile.)
Michael Belfort: Cameron, this year you find yourself in a rather unique position. For the first time in years you’re on the outside, looking in, and having to watch your fellow Elitists get ready for the biggest show of the year. With your sister, Ms. Extreme, set to defend the PURE Championship, and your husband, Jamie O’Hara, competing for the Answers World Championship, a part of you has to feel left out right now.
(Cameron smoothed down her brunette locks and pursed her red lips for a second, thinking of how to reply to that. It wasn’t as if Belfort’s statement was entirely false.)
Cameron Ella Ava: I think before we go any further, we need to get a couple of things straight. My heart is full of nothing but love, respect, and admiration for Camille and Jamie both right now. Both of them have had an up and down year. Each of them has spent time on the sidelines, being forced to watch the Hell our family got put through thanks to a ball-less sack of shit with an undeserved Gawd complex. Camille and Jamie both have fought through setbacks and their own personal feelings, and their respective journeys have taken them to this point. Seeing Camille get closer and closer to breaking the record for the longest PURE Championship reign in history fills me with pride. My sister was never supposed to walk again, let alone get inside the ring and do what she’s doing. She’s an amazing champion and I’m so proud of her. Camille deserves her Pain for Pride moment in Atlanta and I can’t wait to watch it unfold from backstage.
(Cameron’s smile is genuine and her voice is absolutely full of pride as she talks about Camille. The Goddess looks down at her wedding set and twists her engagement ring around her finger thoughtfully.)
Cameron Ella Ava: As far as my man goes, my feelings are the same. There is no one besides Jamie himself, who was more emotional at Grand Rampage than me. His victory was everything and he deserved it. Of course I hate the fact that I lost the Answers World Championship match I had against Theron that night, but knowing Jamie will be the one to dethrone the phony ‘god emperor’ and stop his reign of terror takes the sting out of my defeat. And it doesn’t matter that Jamie’s match is going to feature two other men either. He’s been dying to get his hands on Mr. DEDEDE for months now, and I know he’s not going to hold anything back against him. Darkane’s presence won’t make a difference either. Jamie will handle it and he will once again reign as a world champion here in EAW. I love him and I’m excited for him, and just like I’ll be watching Camille’s match and being her biggest cheerleader, I’ll be watching Jamie’s match and doing the same.
(Cameron looks up and faces the camera again.)
Cameron Ella Ava: Michael, you are right about me being an outsider this year and one thing I’m not going to do is lie to the EAW Universe. It doesn’t feel great knowing that there’s no clear path for me come Pain for Pride, especially considering the grief last year’s show ended up causing my family and me. If anyone deserves to compete on that stage this year, it’s definitely me. I know I had my chance at Grand Rampage. If I had just beaten Theron, I would actually be one of the headliners right now, but I didn’t. We can’t go back and I refuse to beat myself up over that. I’m pushing forward and I’m not about to miss out on competing at Pain for Pride. All year long, every Elitist busts their ass for a chance to have a marquee match and I’m no different. Things might not be looking great for me right now, but I’m one hell of a resourceful woman. I know that something’s going to come up. There’s going to be a way for me to get myself on that show. I have dream matches I want to wrestle, and opponents I haven’t faced yet that I want to test myself against. With Empire being unfairly discontinued, some of those matches are now possible and one of them could happen at Pain for Pride.
(Cameron smirks and shrugs her shoulders.)
Cameron Ella Ava: But even if something doesn’t work out on that end, I’m confident something will open up for me and I’ll be able to compete. EAW knows that there’s no one I’m afraid of and there’s no one I will ever turn down a match against. I love this sport so much. I have given everything I have to this company over the years, and I have no plans on stopping. There’s too many people I want to wrestle against and yes, I still plan on becoming world champion one day. Those dreams might be on hold right now, but the overall career of Cameron Ella Ava is not. I see the fans and their signs, wanting to know where I’m at. ‘Where’s Cameron’ is the question everyone has been asking. Apparently, #CamsInCatering has been a trending topic on Twitter. Well rest assured, I haven’t gone anywhere, I may or may have spent SOME time in catering, and know that I will be at Pain for Pride. I plan to end this season with a statement win, and push forward into the next one with all the momentum in the world. I’m still one of the best in the world to ever step foot inside this ring.
(Belfort couldn’t help but smile at the positivity in Cameron’s voice and her attitude towards her personal situation.)
Michael Belfort: I think you just made a lot of fans happy, Cameron. I think I speak for all of them when I say I can’t wait to see who you end up facing at Pain for Pride.
(Cameron rakes her hands through her hair.)
Cameron Ella Ava: Well whoever that person ends up being, I just want to let them and everyone else know right now, that they will be getting the best version of Cameron Ella Ava. And when I’m at my best, it’s almost impossible for anyone to keep my shoulders down long enough for a three count.
Michael Belfort: Cameron, thank you for your time.
(Cameron nods and Dynasty cuts to the ringside area. We see the commentary trio together and Stew-O begins to speak.)
Stew-O: Always good to hear from Cameron Ella Ava and our colleague Michael Belfort! Now, at Gateway to Glory we saw some action packed matches and huge moments inside in out of the ring. One match in particular was for the New Breed championship where Sosa Henderson defended his title against Dynasty’s own Luciano Giovanni!
Flannery McCoy: That’s right, Luciano tried everything he could and even brought brass knuckles in to the match only for Sosa to turn the tables and beat him at his own game!
(A video shows highlights of the exciting New Breed title match as both Sosa and Luciano look strong throughout the exchange.)
Talib Bari: Not going to lie! I thought the Don had him beat!
Stew-O: He came close but the New Breed Majesty lives to fight another day. Afterwards, the EAW audience was shocked to see Giovanni exit Gateway to Glory in some very unsavory ways. Gio was snatched up by Charlotte Crossing, a detective from Newark, New Jersey and after that was arrested and sent to the US Embassy Seoul! He was later extradited back to the United States by the US Marshalls!
Flannery McCoy: Under charges that include armed robbery and others that were much more severe!
Stew-O: Yeah, looks like Starrstan might need to start doing more thorough background checks on his talent. What a night for Gio! Close title match to closed jail cell!
Talib Bari: As of right now, Giovanni Luciano can be found in Northern State Prison in 168 Frontage Rd, Newark, New Jersey. If any fans would like to send mail to this young, troubled Elitist, his information will be placed on EAW official social media platform! Maybe Stew-O can stop being cheap and put some money on his books, huh!
(We cut to the ring as Stephie Love is seems smiling ear to ear.)
Stephie Love: Our next match is scheduled for ONE FALL!
The Crowd: ONE FALL!
Stephie Love: AND IS A CASH IN THE VAULT QUALIFIER MATCH! Introducing first…
(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media blasts and the crowd begins to boo. The mood of the building changes to negative noises as Lucas Johnson steps from behind the curtain. By his side is Albert Hitchman, and Lucas nods his head while wearing his headphones.)
Stephie Love: Accompanied to the ring by Albert Hitchman, from Atlanta, Georgia…weighing in at 205 pounds, HE IS THE WRESTLING MACHINE… LUUUUUCAS JOOOOOHNSON!!
Stew-O: Lucas Johnson and his partner Feral Khan didn’t get the job done at Gateway to Glory and as a result lost to The Flobros who will be going on to Pain for Pride! Lucas and Albert Hitchman are here to get things back on track and possibly take some anger out on Ryan Wilson in the process! A chance to be added to the CITV match is on the line for both men tonight!
Flannery McCoy: Neither of these men left with victory at Gateway to Glory but never take anything away from them, they both fought hard. Tonight we see who is going to fight the hardest for this CITV qualifying bout.
(Lucas removes his headphones and listens to Albert‘s pep talk before getting in to the ring and hyping himself up in a corner. As his music fades out, “My Way” by Limp Bisquit blares out the PA systems.)
Stephie Love: AND HIS OPPONENT…
(Out walks Ryan Wilson, as EAW Dynasty fans pop loudly. Ryan begins to make his way to the ring as his name pops up on the screen.)
Stephie Love: Hailing from Montreal, Alberta, Canada…weighing 200lbs…HE IS THE “THE AGENT OF CHAOS”…RYAN WILSON!!!
Stew-O: Make no mistake about it, Ryan couldn’t wrangle away that CITV qualifier win from Bowie Grey but he made a huge impression on all watching. There may still be a spot at Pain for Pride for either man if they can pick up a win here tonight!
Flannery McCoy: Never say never and this young man Ryan Wilson has been in EAW long enough to know that luck can flip in one match and someone’s stock can rise quickly!
(Wilson walks up the stairs and enters the ring as Albert Hitchman keeps repeating the same positive phrases at Lucas. Both men square up as the ref calls for the bell.)
Flannery McCoy: The match begins as both of these light heavyweights lock up in the center of the ring. Lucas forces Ryan in to a corner as the referee sees Wilson’s leg wrapped around the bottom rope. The ref demands they break things up as Lucas raises his hands in the air and slowly backs away. SLAP!
Talib Bari: WELL DAMN! Lucas Johnson slaps the hell out of Ryan Wilson as he was backing away. Ryan’s head turned to the side from the force and he slowly turns it back to stare at Lucas who is smiling in the center of the ring. Ryan gives a subtle nod as Albert Hitchman cheers his client on. Wilson meets Johnson in the center of the ring and they lock up once again. This time Ryan drives Lucas in to a corner and Lucas grabs the top rope with his hand as the ref forces them to back away from each other. Ryan raises his hands just as Lucas did and SLAP! NO!
Stew-O: Ryan fakes like he was going for a slap and causes Lucas to put his arms up to block it. Ryan instead kicks him in the midsection! Wilson grabs on to Lucas and flips him on his back with a powerful snap suplex!
Talib Bari: Wilson tricked Lucas and is now in control! Wilson drags Lucas to his feet and begins pelting him with hard right hands to the stomach. Wilson has him and Irish whips him to the ring ropes. Lucas bounces off and runs right in to a CALF KICK! The leg of Wilson Mets the face of Lucas as Lucas lands flat on his back in the middle of the ring.
Stew-O: Albert Hitchman has gone from cheering to begging as Lucas gets worked on more by Wilson. Hitchman would love nothing more than to help Lucas Johnson become Ryan gets to his feet and stomps away at Johnson’s stomach. Wilson makes sure he stays down before sprinting to the ring ropes, leaping in the air, and spring boarding off the middle rope and WOW!
Flannery McCoy: LIONSAULT! The springboard, middle rope, moonsault connects as Wilson rolls to his knees and proceeds to go for the cover!
Stew-O: Quick cover results in a kick out at two! Wilson grabs the back of Lucas head and gets him up to his feet. Lucas smacks his hand away and catches Wilson by surprise!
Flannery McCoy: BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!
Stew-O: Johnson flips Ryan on to his back as he explodes with that suplex out of no where! Wilson is down as Lucas mounts him and takes advantage of his opponent!
Talib Bari: ARM TRIANGLE! The strangle hold is applied as Ryan squirms around on the mat! Lucas is got that submission locked in tight as Hitchman slaps the mat demanding Ryan taps out right here and now!
(Wilson continues to squirm and drag his and Lucas body towards the ropes and Lucas keeps applying pressure.)
Stew-O: Wilson is fighting to get out but Lucas has mastered this maneuver and isn’t looking to let it go willingly!
Flannery McCoy: He might have to because Wilson is desperately trying to get his foot on the ropes! Wilson reaches out with his leg and whiffs on the rope! Lucas wrenches the move on even tighter!
Stew-O: Ryan fries again and misses the ropes as Lucas and Albert beg him to tap out!
Flannery McCoy: WAIT! HE DID IT! Ryan has his foot on the ropes as the ref taps on Lucas shoulder!
Ref: BREAK IT UP!
Stew-O: Lucas slams Ryan’s head to the mat as he let’s go of his triangle hold and gets up to his feet. Ryan uses the ring ropes to gather himself as Johnson argues with the referee.
Talib Bari: Hey, look at Hitchman! He’s moving to that side of the ring as Lucas distracts the ref!
Flannery McCoy: JESUS! He just slapped the saliva out of Ryan Wilson! The ref didn’t see it! Lucas and Albert bending the rules with that one!
Talib Bari: Lucas brushes past the referee and smirks at his manager as they both realize they got away with a fast one there. Johnson stomps on Wilson who is down and prone against the ropes. Wilson looks a bit withered from that triangle hold as he still is trying to gather himself. Albert is ringside telling Lucas to finish the job. Johnson gets Wilson up to his feet. He jabs him in the gut with a hard right! He leans him against the ring ropes and
Stew-O: REVERSE! Wilson reverses the Irish whips and throws Johnson over the top rope!
Talib Bari: Johnson lands at the feet of Albert Hitchman who barely avoids getting smashed by his client!
Stew-O: Albert helps his client up to his feet as Ryan shakes his head and goes sprinting from across the opposite side of the ring!
Flannery McCoy: HE LEAPS! OVER THE TOP ROPE! LIONSAULT FROM INSIDE THE RING ON TO HITCHMAN AND JOHNSON! MY GOD WHAT ATHLETICISM THAT TAKES TO PULL OFF!
Stew-O: I don’t think I’ve ever seen Ryan hit that move in that way on to two men before! Wilson gets up and is charged all the way up as he rolls Johnson in to the ring and gets a few kicks in on Hitchman who is wasted ringside!
Flannery McCoy: Johnson staggers to his feet as Ryan hops on the apron and in to the ring himself. Ryan Irish whips Johnson in to a corner and speeds after him and SUPERMAN PUNCH! He connects with a Superman punch as Lucas looks out of it! Johnson collapses in to the corner and Ryan sees a chance to finish him with Hitchman out! Wilson rolls Lucas on the mat and hops on to the turnbuckle. Ryan sits perched up top as the ref checks on Lucas. Lucas slowly makes it back up and he opens his eyes to see Ryan about to jump! Johnson grabs the ref by the collar as Ryan soars!
Stew-O: TORNADO DDT OF DEATH!
Talib Bari: WAIT! Ryan hits his flying ddt but Lucas had the referee with him and inadvertently BOTH MEN get hit with the brunt of that ddt! Ryan doesn’t realize the referee is out and drapes his arms over the knocked out Lucas Johnson!
Stew-O: The crowd is counting but it doesn’t count because the official is dazed and laying face down on the mat. Ryan sees the dilemma and goes to get him up! Wilson shakes the ref. He shakes him some more.
Flannery McCoy: WAIT! The ramp! LOOK
Stew-O: Wilson desperately shakes the referee in order to…
Flannery McCoy: HE SLID UNDER THE ROPES!
Stew-O: SHAKER JONES! SHAKER JONES! HES BEHIND WILSON AND HES WAITING! RYAN SENSES SOMETHING IS WRONG AND TURNS AROUND!!
Talib Bari: THE ROCKNROLLA! HE JUST LIFTED RYAN HIGH AND DOWN HARD WITH THAT DDT!
(The referee begins to stir, Shaker Jones sees this and drags Lucas over Ryan’s body.)
Stew-O: The ref is awake! Albert Hitchman is on his feet holding his face! This arena is rocking all over the place!
Talib Bari: The ref sees Lucas making the cover!
DING!! DING!! DING!!
(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media plays as Hitchman walks in to the ring and helps his client up who is just now coming to. Ryan is out cold as the ref raises Lucas’s hand and his theme music plays. Shaker Jones stands on top of the ramp smiling at what he has done.)
Talib Bari: While Wilson was shaking the referee, Jones came to shake up the entire match by dropping him where he stood with that incredible ROCKNROLLA ddt! Lucas just lost his chance to enter this year’s cash in the vault ladder match!
Stew-O: Lucas Johnson looked as if he was ready to finish the match but after accidentally taking out the ref, Shaker Jones came from out of nowhere to take him out! Jones cost Lucas the opportunity of a lifetime!
(Shaker stares at the ring as Lucas and Hitchman begin to piece together exactly what happened. Wilson is still out from the surprise attack as the show heads to commercial. We see an ad for Bowie Grey anti-depression pills. We come back from break as we see the camera pointed to the stage.“Just Cos You Got The Power” by Motörhead burst out the speakers as the entire building begins to rain boos down from all over. Suddenly, out steps Mark Michaels, wearing denim jeans, an anti-EAW shirt, and a black lether jacket.)
Stew-O: He went in to Gateway to Glory with so much momentum. He went head to head with The Ace and came up short but went all out against a former world champion and current Grand Rampage winner.
Talib Bari: Jamie closed Mark Michaels Gateway to Glory but I highly doubt he closed the gateway to his mouth and I fully expect Mark to air even more grievances here tonight.
Flannery McCoy: Mark Michaels has been on a rampage with his anti EAW propaganda and I expect more of it right here, right now.
(Mark enters the ring and snatched a mic from Stephie Love who he forces to exit via the bottom rope. His theme song ends and he begins to pace back and forth around the ring.)
Mark Michaels: Did any of you really think I would go away easily? That I would lay down and die? That my truths would be silenced by The Ace? I hope not. I hope you all would’ve been smarter than that. I would hope you all wouldn’t be that moronic and stupid to expect me to stop pursuing my goal. Gateway to Glory wasn’t enough to keep me down and for anybody that hasn’t learned anything about me they surely learned the one fact about me that everyone needs to know.
(Crowd boos as Mark adjusts his jacket and stares down the men and women in the arena. He pauses for emphasis as a serious and stern expression washed over his face. He raises the microphone to his lips and stares deeply in to the camera.)
Mark Michaels: I.WILL.NOT.DIE!
(More booing commenced as Mark struts around the ring as if he owns it.)
Flannery McCoy: He’s a persistent one isn’t he?
Mark Michaels: Try as they might, EAW and it’s chosen ones just can’t keep me down! Jamie O’Hara, The ACE! He fought and got me, yes! He beat me at Gateway to Glory but that was but a small battle in this war I wage! I’ve been slighted unjustly over and over again by management and I will not rest or ceasefire in this attack on EAW! I will not back down, I will not quit until I get what the fuck I want! I don’t give a damn about you people and the popularity contest half this roster engages in weekly. I don’t give a fuck about fancy t-shirt deals or crappy endorsement deals with shell companies ran by shady oligarchs! I have one mission and one mission I must accomplish and I demand the opportunity I deserve! I have studied every spec and iota of this business and dedicated my entire life to mastering the ins and outs of this ring. I went from the highest of highs and the top of the industry only to be have my name buried ever since then! I have fought back from horrific injuries and persevered where others would roll over and quit and for what? To watch others be flooded with chances and me to be left in the scrap heap!
(Crowd boos louder as Mark stares at them with disgust and points at a particular person in the front row.)
Mark Michaels: You, fat girl! Why don’t you hop this barricade and I beat you like I would do some of those soon to be unemployed, overrated whores from Empire! Huh?
(Fans are becoming ravenous and raucous as Mark Michaels isn’t even close to smirking.)
Mark Michaels: Jamie O’Hara needed divine intervention to survive me at GTG…but the rest of EAW and it’s elitist will need to make a deal with the devil and god together to keep me from running roughshod and taking everything I want! You will need tanks from Army Bases and Riffles from war zones to shoot down this Guerilla warfare mastermind of mine! Why? Why Mark? I hear this question every day from people who aren’t smart enough to comprehend a mind this brilliant. I made my demands as simple as possible yet nobody listens. You people think I’m the one that is in the wrong but that is the furthest thing from the truth. ALL THE TROUBLE I CAUSED ISN’T ON ME BUT ON ALL OF YOU! YOU COULD HAVE JUST GAVE ME WHAT THE FUCK I WANTED AND THINGS COULD HAVE BEEN SAFER FOR YOU SCUMBAGS! I FUCKING WANT WHAT I FUCKING WANT AND YOU REFUSE TO GIVE IT TO ME! YOU THINK I WILL EVER STOP DOING WHAT THE FU-
???: OKAY OKAY ENOUGH!
Stew-O: Finally, someone cuts him off!
(Out walks StarrStan displeased at Mark Michaels act. He stands on stage looking visibly annoyed.)
Starrstan: Hey! What’s going on? You seem to still be upset huh?
Mark Michaels: I’m not out here for fucking JOKES, STARRSTAN!
StarrStan: Oh yeah? I sure as hell don’t know why you have the audacity to come out here after all the hell you have caused and keep screaming about how wrong EAW has done you or how others benefit while you seemingly get passed over. News flash, everybody has to earn their spot! You lost to Jamie O’Hara but you fought hard! You didn’t go down easy! What else do you want?
(Mark lowers the microphone and mouths the words “You Know What I Want” to StarrStan.)
StarrStan: Huh? Speak up! You did all that talking before I came out here and took up all this air time yet you can’t just say what you want?
Mark Michaels: You know what I want!
StarrStan: I absolutely don’t! I don’t think anybody in this arena has a clue what exactly you want! How about this, how about I give you something I at least THINK you may want? How is that for a compromise?
Stew-O: What could he be offering Mark Michaels?
Talib Bari: Hopefully it’s a commercial break for us to jump to to end this!
StarrStan: Better yet, how about THE EXTREME FACE OF ELITE ANSWERS comes down there…
(Fans begin to stir with excitement as the mentioning of you know who.)
StarrStan: And she tells you what my offer is to shut you up and end all this!
(“Gangsta” by New Year’s Day plays as everyone in the building loses their minds. Indeed, out from behind the curtains appears Ms. Extreme as she carries her Pure Championship on her shoulder. She walks past StarrStan and down the ramp immediately.)
Stew-O: I DON’T KNOW IF THIS IS WHAT HE WANTED BUT I’M SURE HE IS EXCITED FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY!
Crowd: LETS GO RED QUEEN! CLAP! CLAP! CLAP-CLAP CLAP! LETS GO RED QUEEN! CLAP! CLAP! CLAP-CLAP CLAP! LETS GO RED QUEEN! CLAP! CLAP! CLAP-CLAP CLAP!
Flannery McCoy: The Pure champion is here! Ms. Extreme retained her title at Gateway to Glory and now she is here and she is climbing in that ring! Ms Extreme and Mark Michaels stand face to face as StarrStan sees from the stage a smirk appear on Mark’s face.
Talib Bari: She beat Ryan Wilson to keep that belt but this motivated, insane version of Mark Michaels looks to finally get what he wanted! A Pure Championship title shot!
StarrStan: Let’s hope you make the best of this! See you two at Pain for Pride!
(StarrStan heads towards the back as we get an intense stare down from our champion and her next challenger before heading to a commercial break. An advertisement for HBO’s next epic fantasy “Game of Emperors” staring Nick Jonas as Theron GreyKolas as an emperor who believes he’s a good and demands everyone to kneel before him. Hmm…we return from break as Stephie Love can be seen in the ring.)
Stephie Love: The following contest IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING AND IT IS SET FOR ONE FALL!!!
( “ blood // water” by grandson begins to play as Bowie begins making his way down to the ring)
Stephie: Introducing first, From Salem, Massachusetts! Weighting in 185 Pounds! BOWWWIEEEEEE GRAYYYYYYYYY..!!
Stew-O: We’re back from break and our main event of the evening is under way! One of Dynasty’s two Cash in the Vault representatives will be facing off against Mr. DEDEDE in his first action since March! On another note, as you notice, we are short one person and that is because during the break when StarrStan was out here, he brought Talib Bari back with him.
Flannery McCoy: We aren’t quite sure why but we’ll keep you updated if anything comes our way.
(“Talk Up” By Drake & Jay Z hits as Mr. DEDEDE enters the arena and does his signature corna taunt before he continues to strut down the ring)
Stephie: Introducing his opponent, Residing in the the Ryan Adams estate of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic! Weighting in at 222 Pounds!! MRRRRR…DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew: And here we ar– MR. DEDEDE RIPS BOWIE IN HALF WITH A SPEAR ALREADY!!! FROM THE GATES!!! MR. DEDEDE WASTING NO TIME AND THE REFEREE CAN’T EVEN SAY ANYTHING, HE SIGNALED FOR THE BELL!!! DEDEDE COVERS!!
(“Talk Up” picks back up as Mr. DEDEDE rises to his feet mouthing the words of “Gawd work” as he has his hand risen)
Stephie: HERE IS YOUR WINNER….MRRRRR…DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Stew-O: Talk about quick work! I don’t think Bowie was quite ready for what was coming but DEDEDE certainly was and I’m sure his Pain for Pride opponents are paying close attention.
Flannery McCoy: If this is what we can continue to expect going into Pain for Pride then we very well might be looking at our next Answers World Champion.
(DEDEDE is shown making his way up the ramp notioning for the title around his waist as the camera fades to black)
(The camera then transitions backstage to Talib Bari & StarrStan backstage in Starr’s office.)
Talib Bari: So it’s that Adams chick huh?
StarrStan: Unfortunately so. She’s snatching you away because she feels like you’d make a better asset on Voltage.
Talib Bari: That’s wild.. I guess nobody ain’t really got a choice then.
StarrStan: When you’re an Adams it’s either your way or the highway, you know how it goes.
Talib Bari: You right. Thank you for the opportunity, ima do it big over on Voltage and make you proud. (Talib stands up from his seat as the two men shake hands)
(Camera fades to black)
(EAW Logo Buzzes)
