(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 Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai, China are going nuts as the show begins. The camera pans around and in the crowd are signs saying things like “NOBODY KNEELS!”’, ‘THE WRATH OF KAHN”, “SHAKER, NEVER STIRRED”. We see the trio of Dynasty announcers as the show begins.)
Stew-O: Welcome Everybody to Friday Night Dynasty! I’m Stew-O and two my left and right are my partners Flannery McCoy and
Talib Bari: I can speak for myself!
Flannery McCoy: We know you can speak but we might all be left speechless tonight with this blockbuster matchups scheduled for us here in Shanghai! A few weeks away from Gateway to Glory and Things don’t look to be slowly down for anybody!
Talib Bari: Especially not for Jamie O’Hara or Theron Nikolas! The Ace teams with Thadd Blazevich to go against The God Emperor and Mark Michaels in tonight’s main event!
Stew-O: We also have Darkane vs Ms. Extreme and Shaker Jones in action with Giovanni Luciano as well!
(“My Way” by Limp Bizkit begins to play throughout the arena speakers as Ryan Wilson appears alone on stage. He proceeds down the ramp, not wasting any time to enjoy the negative crowd reaction he is receiving. He jogs up the steel steps and rests on the apron, posing before stepping in-between the ropes.)
Talib Bari: And we’re getting right into the thick of it here tonight as Ryan Wilson, “The Agent of Chaos,” makes his way to the ring, presumably looking for answers for the question he proposed to Shaker Jones last week!
Flannery McCoy: I think you’re right, Talib. After all that went down last week, I can’t blame Ryan Wilson at all for being the one to kick things off here tonight, as he’s looking to get an immediate response from Shaker Jones about the challenge that was issued!
Stew-O: That’s right, Flan, Jones received an offer he might be better off refusing–the offer to go one-on-one with Wilson in a Seoul Street Fight at Gateway To Glory!
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, RRRYYY–
(Ryan Wilson suddenly snatches the microphone from Stephie Love’s hands. He shoos her away from the ring as he waits for his music to die down, raising the microphone to his mouth as he begins to speak.)
Ryan Wilson: Now, I’m sure you all know exactly why I’m out here. I’m here for one thing only–and answer. I’m out here for Shaker Jones. I’m out here to let that waste of genetic material that I’m waiting impatiently for a response! And I’m definitely looking forward to hearing you say “yes.” That you accept like the fool you’ve always been. Oh YES, Shaker, I want to tear you apart and I want to stand over your carcass after I gave you a mind shattering beating that will make you question yourself and make you open your eyes to what you failed to accept: your recent success exists only because of one mistake on my part. I lost against you, yes, but had I been not so arrogant you would have ended up losing. I promise you–no, I guarantee you, that you will never have an opportunity like that again. The beating I plan on giving you will force your eyes and your mind setting you up to accept this inevitable truth, that I’m going to end you, Shaker Jones, and finally rid EAW of your–
(“I Love It Loud” by Kiss cuts Ryan Wilson off, and Shaker Jones steps out onto the stage with a microphone in his hand. He gets halfway down the ramp and his music dies down, staring onward at an energized Ryan Wilson as Shaker raises the microphone to his mouth.)
Shaker Jones: I’ve heard enough out of you, Ryan. “Shaker this, Shaker that, I can’t wait to put an end to Shaker Jones. Shaker Jones is good for nothing and will never make a name for himself.” What’s with your obsession with me? It’s just a little confusing for me to know that a man who thinks he’s better than me, you just can’t seem to shake me. You just can’t accept the fact that I am flat out better than you, Ryan, in every way imaginable.
(Shaker finally arrives at the steel steps, where he walks up and steps onto the apron. He takes his time entering the ring between the middle ropes and positioning himself directly in front of Ryan Wilson, who is now leaning back on the ring ropes comfortably.)
Shaker Jones: I beat you once before, you really want me to have to do it to you again? Come to think of it…I wouldn’t really mind doing it to you again. It’ll only be for my benefit, anyway. Beating you, Ryan, was just the spark I needed–the catalyst, if you will, to bring me to the next level, and now that I am here, this elevator ain’t going down. I am everything that I say I am, one of the best damn wrestlers in this business, one of the best technical wrestlers in this business. A man who is three steps ahead of you as he is playing chess, when all you are doing is playing checkers. And that’s exactly why I’m going to beat you again at Gateway To Glory, because, Ryan…I ACCE–
(Shaker is started when “2nd Sucks” by A Day To Remember begins to blare throughout the arena speakers, Ryan and Shaker both turning their attention to the stage where Starr Stan has bursted from behind the curtain. He motions for the music to be cut as he dashes down the ramp to the center of the ring.)
Starr Stan: Now wait just a minute, fellas! Who the hell died and made you two GM? Definitely wasn’t me, cause I’m right here! I’m not sure what you think this is, but there is only ONE person who makes matches on this brand and that’s ME.
(Starr enters the ring and stands between Ryan Wilson and Shaker Jones.)
Starr Stan: Don’t get too far ahead of yourselves, gentlemen. I’m the one in charge, and you better respect that. And Shaker, you actually have a pretty good point. I don’t think for a second that any of these people want to see you two go at each other’s throats again. I’m not letting that match happen. You might as well forget all about it.
Ryan Wilson: C’MON, STAN! Why do you have to be such a control freak all the time?! Let me have this one, just once–
Starr Stan: I’ll do you one better, Ryan. Maybe I’ll give you something that I think you definitely want a little bit more than you do another chance at Shaker Jones. A shot you’ve been dying for, practically begging to have for months now–a shot at Ms. Extreme, and the PURE Championship.
(Starr lowers the microphone with a smile, as the crowd cheers at The Red Queen’s name. A wide smile grows across Ryan Wilson’s face.)
Starr Stan: Well?
Ryan Wilson: Shit, I’ll take it, Stan! Ever since I have stepped foot here on the grounds of the Land of the Elite, I’ve been aiming to become the holder of the PURE Championship belt, and it’s finally happening. (He turns his attention back to Shaker Jones.) To hell with you, Shaker. I told you that you were nothing more than a stepping stone, dead weight. Kiss my ass! I’m getting my hands on that title, despite everything you did to hold me back and try and convince me that I couldn’t. I am going to be the next PURE Champion and I promise you I will walk out of the title match with the title around my waist! And you won’t be able to do anything but watch, Shaker, as I accomplish all that you FAILED to do.
(Ryan drops the microphone with a pop and steps out of the way, bumping into Shaker Jones as he steps between the ropes and makes his way up the ramp. Shaker Jones stands in the center of the ring, looking at Starr Stan with a disappointed look on his face.)
Shaker Jones: So, that’s it? Nothing for me? Can’t throw me a bone? All this work that I’ve done for years, and I have nothing to say for it. And it’s all my fault though, isn’t it? I’m just that much of a failure, aren’t I? Just tell me. Where can I go from here, Starr? What’s next for me?
Starr Stan: You know, I actually do have a little something in mind for you, Shaker. I think you’ll like this as well. Because I hear you, and many Elitists time and time again have been in your position, have felt the way that you’re feeling right now. So, I’m going to give you a chance to redeem yourself, a chance at redemption. A chance to accomplish ever Elitist’s greatest dreams of becoming an EAW World Champion! It starts with a multi-man Cash In The Vault qualifying match at Gateway To Glory. And Shaker, you’re one of our first participants. Consider yourself lucky–and don’t mess this up this time.
(Shaker, looking pleased, shakes the extended hand of Starr Stan, accepting the offer made to him. “2nd Sucks” begins to play throughout the arena as he makes his way out of the ring and up to the ramp. Shaker Jones still wears somewhat of a giddy and surprised smile on his face as he looks around at the fans in the arena, stopping to focus on the Pain For Pride sign hanging up from the rafters as Dynasty fades to the first commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Wrigley’s FIVE gum starring Crosby Carter. He’s seen chewing his gum and transforming from a dirty kid in to a fresh breath kid who is less dirty. Carsyn appears and gives him a kiss on the cheek before it fades out. We open back up with the camera inside the ring.)
Stephie Love: The following Tag Team contest is set for one fall! Introducing first…
(‘Yikes’ by Kanye West begins to play as Tyson Michaels makes his way down the ramp, the crowd optimistic about the newcomer, gives a respectable cheer.)
Stew-O: Tyson Michaels making his debut here tonight alongside Shaker Jones in a match that could be a unique showcase for him, not only will he get a chance to show his abilities against two very game competitors, he also can showcase his ability to work in a team with someone who just challenged for the PURE title against Ms. Extreme!
Talib Bari: Seems to me like he’s going to get a chance to prove that Feral Khan can squash him like a bug! Poor guy doesn’t realize that being teamed with Shaker Jones is a death sentence!
(‘I love it Loud’ by KISS begins to play as Shaker Jones makes his way to the ring to the cheers of the crowd.)
Flannery McCoy: Shaker is in the middle of an ongoing war with Ryan Wilson, which is a result of his last tag team falling apart when Ryan broke up the Score up. Tyson could do a lot worse than teaming with Shaker Jones!
Stephie Love: Introducing the first team, first weighing in at 190 pounds, and hailing from Orlando Florida, Tyson Michaels!
(Tyson raises his arms as the crowd gives a cheer.)
Stephie Love: Introducing his partner, weighing in at 250 pounds, from Inglis, Manitoba, Canada…The Punk Rock Cowboy…SHAKER JONES!
(Shaker stays focused on entrance as the cheer increase in volume for the announcement of Shaker.)
Stephie Love: Introducing their opponents…
(‘Young and Bitter’ by Hot Tag Media plays as Lucas Johnson and Feral Khan walk out onto the stage, soaking in the boos of the crowd.)
Talib Bari: Here we go! These two are going to show Tyson and Shaker just what a mistake it was to even show up tonight! I mean, just look at them! They came out together, as a team, that’s already one up on their opponents!
Flannery McCoy: That’s…actually a fair point, yeah, Khan and Johnson has formed quite the formidable unit lately, it will certainly be a challenge for Shaker and Tyson to overcome!
Stephie Love: Introducing their opponents…the team of Lucas Johnson and Feral Khan!
(Lucas grins sarcastically and claps slowly as Feral Khan snarls at Shaker and Tyson. Stephie exits the ring as the referee checks the competitors and calls for the ring bell.)
(DING DING DING!)
Stew-O:Here we go! Looks like Lucas and Tyson are starting things off here tonight, interesting thing, and Johnson, who has the experience advantage here in the match goes for tie up…NO! He drives a thumb into the eye of Michaels! Tyson stumbles back into the neutral corner, trying to get away and clear his vision, but Lucas follows closely behind, pushing the newcomer back and delivering a stiff forearm shot! Hip Toss from Johnson followed by a running dropkick to the head, stunning Tyson long enough for a lateral press!
Referee: ONE! TWO!
Flannery McCoy: Kickout! Tyson may be new, but he’s got some fight in him! Lucas locks in a chinlock as Shaker cheers on Tyson from Ringside, and Khan gowers in his corner. Tyson manages to break the hold, and slaps Lucas across the face, buying himself enough time to return to a vertical base! Tyson goes to the ropes, but Lucas counters with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, which he holds applying pressure as Michael’s’ back is bent at a terrible angle! Tyson screams in pain as Lucas grinds his knee in deep!
Talib Bari: Looks like he’s wanting to really hurt Tyson here, I told you both that he should have never accepted the match! Lucas tags in Feral Khan and Tyson is in for a whole world of hurt! Khan just flattens Tyson as the new comer rises to meet the monster in a brave, but stupid attempt. Khan picks up Tyson in a huge bearhug and is squeezing the very life from him! The referee checks Tyson to see if he wants to quit, but he refuses! The big man in anger flings Michaels to the mat and in a burst of speed runs directly into Shaker, who was caught unaware and flung into the barricade! Khan then drags Michaels back to his corner and tags Lucas who climbs to the top rope, looks like there will be some double team action here tonight!
Stew-O: Indeed you’re right! Khan picks up Tyson into a powerbomb position and Lucas leaps from the top rope, landing a big bulldog and powerbomb combination! Tyson is in real trouble here! Lucas goes for the pin!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Stew-O: NO! Shaker makes the save at the last possible moment, and the match continues, but Tyson is out! Shaker Jones is stalking Lucas…he’s going for the ‘87!!! NO! KHAN WITH THE STRONGMAN PLUNGE! SHAKER IS LAID OUT!
Flanner McCoy: Lucas turns his attention back to Tyson who is starting to rise a bit…Lucas has other plans, though, THE MACHINE BREAK! He’s got that Kimura locked in tight! Tyson taps!
(DING DING DING!)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, your winners by submission…Lucas Johnson and Feral Khan!
(‘Young and Bitter’ begins to play as Lucas and Khan celebrate in the ring and the crowd rains down.)
Flanner McCoy: Khan and Lucas get the big win here tonight!
Stew-O: Both men are going to be looking to take this momentum here forward! Shake Jones shouldn’t lower his head but Tyson has some work cut out for him if he wants to make a name for himself here on Dynasty!
(Scene fades to a commercial for Gold Bond Powder staring Thadd Blazevich and his bare feet. He talks about fighting not just Elitist but also athlete’s foot. We come back from break to see the EAW ring)
(“I Hope You Suffer” by AFI blasts throughout the PA System to intense boos as Theron Nikolas emerges through the curtain with the Answers World Championship plastered over his shoulder. He makes his way down the ramp with a cold standoffish demeanor.)
Flannery McCoy: It doesn’t look like these fans are happy to see Theron, but for Theron it’s business as usual. The champ must be prepping to address the crowd as his match isn’t till later.
(Theron stands in the middle of the ring with the mic in hand as “I Hope You Suffer” dies down and he his flooded with boos which amuses him.)
Theron Nikolas: Just one year ago today, I stood in the face of corruption and tyranny and I told them “fuck you”. I overcame everything thrown in my way from entities I was deemed powerless against, not only did I do that… but I rendered those very entities irrelevant. Time after time I have shown everybody why I am considered the God Emperor. Every single one of your little false Gods thrown in my way, I shatter them all one by one, it never fails. No matter the scenario, it alway ends with me on top. And you know why? Because I have conviction, because there is a method to every single thing that I do. There is not a single entity in this company with the gall to stand across from the God Emperor and knock me off of my throne. You can be a founder, an Ace, or even a Gawd, you get knocked down all the same, I conquer you all.
(Theron takes a deep breath before continuing)
Theron Nikolas: You have to be a fool to think that I would have ever gone against my better judgment and became a part of something I spent the year prior speaking out against. I didn’t sacrifice my morals to become a part of the system, I sacrificed the system itself and milked it for everything it’s worth until I found no more use of it and disposed of it. Whether you’re Mr. DEDEDE, Ronn Banks, or Robbie V.. you’re all the same in nature in the sense that they are all in it for self and will sacrifice whatever in order to get to where they need to be. Men who have thrown decade long friendships out of the window in order to appease themselves only, men who have torn companies apart from the very core in order to get ahead, men who simply don’t give a fuck about anything that doesn’t benefit them. The writing was on the wall, it was kill or be killed and I know what I had to do. I knew it was only a matter of time before this championship on my shoulder became a priority for him and I struck before he did I eliminated the final chess piece to obtain complete domination over this company and beat the man at his own game. Even a “gawd” had to kneel.
(Theron pauses as the crowd boos)
Theron Nikolas: He hasn’t shown his face back in EAW since I embarrassed him and made him eat his own shit and I expect that to stay the same. Not even the allure of a triumphant Grand Rampage return was enough to entice him. I’ll always be 10 steps ahead and I will NEVER stand to see myself become someone else’s sacrifice or stepping stone, it’s not 2017 anymore. Speaking of it not being 2017 anymore somebody should tell Jamie O’Hara that second chances don’t exist. There is no “dusting yourself off and trying again”. By winning the Grand Rampage all you have proven is that you’re a stubborn cunt who can’t accept defeat and now you have to die for a second time. Imagine, overcoming the task of fighting off 29 other men in an all out war, all for the opportunity to become a victim. You must like really enjoy slapped around by me, but don’t worry, there’s enough to go around. I’m going to knock you back down from ace to amateur the same way I did your bitch three weeks ago. DEDEDE might be a lot of things, but he’s smart and you aren’t. He’s smart enough to know what I’m capable of by spending the past year on my side and understanding the severity of going to war with me. You though? You’re stubborn. You’re persistent. You couldn’t live with your failure and your pride cost you a true chance at redemption by going up against any of the other two world champs. Instead you chose to go against the one man who has your number time and time again—
(“Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA [EAW Edit] hits to a thunderous roar from the fans who all rise to their feet, much to the annoyance of Theron Nikolas. Jamie O’Hara makes his way out with a microphone in hand, not taking his eyes off of Theron as he paces to the ring.)
Jamie O’Hara: I told myself I would let him live until after Gateway to Glory, and then I would absolutely maul the cunt, but I had just enough of sitting in the back and “waiting my turn”. Not to mention, he’ll be lucky to even make it past Gateway to Glory as champion so fuck it. You’re going to shut the fuck up for once and listen to what I have to say. Everything that made you as “dominant” as you delude the people into thinking you are, you’ve abandoned it. The 1% was founded off of cut corners and burnt bridges and not even a year later the 1% is barely standing on it’s last leg because the very thing that created it also destroyed it. In other words, you no longer hide behind that protective shield, the chairman’s power no longer benefits you. You’re vulnerable and wide open and you don’t even realize it, but I’m going to have a good time exploiting it. You fucks went from four elite competitors who had the company in the palm of your hands, to an overrated dick-nosed flog and two old hags who barely show up anymore. You have nothing backing you, nothing to stand on, nothing to fall back on, and nothing to keep my from bashing your fucking skull in.
Theron Nikolas: Idle threats from the very same man I made kneel at King of Elite without any of those said protective forces. What you don’t realize is that I AM the 1%, anybody who comes from under that banner benefits off of being affiliated with me, not the other way around. Remember when you were in the middle of that ring gasping for air? Trying to find an escape only to be seconds away from your fate of losing? That was nothing. King of Elite will be a walk in the park in comparison to what you’re in for come Pain for Pride Jamie, you’re going to die in that ring. You’re like a little roach who keeps coming back time and time again no matter how many times you get stomped out, but you get stomped out nonetheless. You’re persistent if nothing else, but that’s more of a curse than it is a gift because you clearly don’t know when to call it quits and accept the fact that you have a superior. Everybody meets their match at some point in life, well everybody but me. You met yours and it burns you up inside to know that there is nothing you’ll ever be able to do in order to overcome it. Winning a Grand Rampage match in your hometown in a feel good moment only to let those same fans down two months later when you’re in the main event losing to me for a second time this year.
Jamie O’Hara: Yeah nah. See the difference between you and I is that when I take what on would consider an “L”, I bounce right back even stronger. I do what I need to do by EARNING another opportunity to correct a mistake in order to kick your ass the proper way. Can you say the same? Or has your constant failure once in your career only been responded to by public lashing outs at entities who weren’t responsible for your shortcomings but you used as a scapegoat anyways? Then you aligned yourself with the same forces of power thinking that you could milk it for what it’s worth and then dispose of it. It doesn’t work like that, it always comes back to bite you when you don’t do it right, and Pain for Pride is just your first taste of karma. That is if I don’t fuck you up so bad in that ring beyond recognition to the point where you never show your face here again. Either one works for me. Nobody benefits from standing next to you Theron, you’ve manipulated and used the system to your advantage in a cute little game of checkers. Your surface level way of approaching everything is why you’ll never truly be taken serious as a force in EAW. It’s why you lost Elitist of the Year and then bitched about it in your little tone deaf rant, it’s because everybody can see what you can’t seem to…. and it’s the fact that you’re a fucking joke. Nobody takes you serious Theron, everybody who initially brought into the 1% garbage you spewed in the beginning of the season abandoned you and DEDEDE was beginning to see how useless you are too before you beat him to the punch. Jack Ripley failed under you got himself fired from Dynasty, now he’s a champion on Voltage and enjoying the fruits of his labor in a singles career no longer hindered by running behind a selfish coward. Impact for as much as I despise the guy even he saw the writing on the wall regarding your facade and didn’t mind getting the fuck out of dodge and focusing on his own career and ended up capturing an 8th world championship, without you. Contrary to what you believe mate, nobody looked at the 1% as some unstoppable force, it was always a Theron stroke-fest and now it’s days are numbered.
(The expression on Theron’s face becomes a visibly annoyed one)
Theron Nikolas: The only one whose days are numbered is you Jamie. I have carried this company on my back, I’ve defeated every single person they said I couldn’t, I dominated time and time again. While you were in West Bumblefuck, Australia playing computer hacker I was on the road week in and week out actually competing and proving myself. Your little nostalgia run doesn’t mean shit to me. Your cute little Grand Rampage moment doesn’t mean shit to me. Take a look at the last two Grand Rampage winners and ask yourself this question, “where the fuck are they now?”. Exactly. You’re going to follow that tradition because the same question will be asked about you sooner rather than later. There isn’t anyone in this company who will ev–
(“Wizard in Black” by Electric Wizard hits to a huge mixed reaction as Darkane makes his way out looking unimpressed, he enters the ring and stands in between Jamie and Theron before beginning to talk.)
Darkane: Both of you shut the fuck up. All of this bickering and bitching about absolutely nothing of importance is like listening to nails on a chalkboard. I’d rather sit in the back and listen to Landerson make impromptu matches that never happen than listen to this. Two asswipes wasting their breath going back and forth about a hypothetical matchup that isn’t even going to come into fruition because I’m going to be walking into Pain for Pride as the Answers World Champion to face Jamie O’Hara. Yeah, you forgot dickhead? I’M the number one contender for the Answers World Championship, MY Answers World Championship that was stolen out of my grasp with the help of your lackeys, all of whom ironically have abandoned you. I’m finally getting my revenge, and you know the story ends different this time around. As for you Jamie, we got unfinished business from the Grand Rampage, congrats on the win, but most importantly congrats on eliminating me even though you needed Rex in order to do so. I can’t take away from that win but what I can take away from you is your opportunity to bring everything full circle by blocking your championship aspirations. You two seem to forget a very big factor in the way of your wet-dream rematch that nobody gives a fuck about, ME.
Theron Nikolas: This is cute. All of my victims coming back for seconds.
Jamie O’Hara: You can paint a narrative however you see fit but the picture is as clear as day, I outperformed you in every way imaginable at the Grand Rampage. If you happen to beat Theron, which I wouldn’t put past you since the guys a fucking bum, I’ll be right there to hand you yet another FPV loss. My pleasure. You’re good, but you’re not Jamie O’Hara good.
Darkane: Jamie O’Hara good? What do I look like, Noah Reigner? I don’t give a fuck about trying to live up to some bullshit standard you set. I do things at the beat of my drum and it’s gotten me this far, and even in failure I never tucked my tail between my legs and disappeared for five months. Can you say the same?
Theron Nikolas: Yeah just two.
Darkane: Shut the fuck up you Squidward faced cocksucker. Nobody gives a shit about what you have to say. What you need to be worried about is how long YOU’LL be out after I take your head off a Gateway to Glory. By the way, where’s the two old bitches you roll with? Couldn’t make it this week? Going through menopause? Had an AARP meeting to attend? Oh yeah that’s right they got shipped back to Empire to get their clocks cleaned by two goth bitches. You have nobody on your side anymore. You’re trapped on an island by yourself, consider me to be that big tsunami that appears and wipes you completely out. I know this is a sensitive time for spoilers and all, but I don’t give a shit. Here’s a big spoiler for Pain for Pride. It’s going to be the challenger, Jamie O’Hara taking on the two time Answers World Champion, Darkane. And I’ll leave you with one last spoiler for the road… I’m gonna win.
(Darkane drops the microphone as “Wizard in Black” picks back up and he makes his way to the back not looking back. Theron and Jamie look on while also exchanging words off mic appearing as if they are arguing.)
Talib Bari: Now that’s what I call a statement. All three men got a chance to get their shit off and all three men made great points.
Flannery McCoy: Indeed they did, Darkane kept his short and sweet but he still packed a punch either way. It will be interesting to see how these next two weeks shape up with the Answers World Championship picture. Are we finally seeing a chink in the armor of Theron? Or is everything fine in the world of the God Emperor?
Stew-O: I guess we’ll find out soon enough but in the meantime let’s take a look back at last night’s Empire!
(A recap of Thursday Night Empire airs including the heated rivalry between Sienna Jade and Tyler Wolfe, Felix Hartley and Serena Bennett, as well as Kassidy Heart and Raven Roberts.)
(Dynasty comes back on air as Stephie Love is shown in the middle of the ring.)
Stephie Love: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!
( “Hell’s Bells” by AC/DC starts playing over the arena speakers.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, from Hoboken, New Jersey, Weighing In at 210 pounds, THE DON… GGGGIIIIIIOOOOVVVVAAAANNNNNIIII LLLLLLUUUUUUCCCCCIIIIAAAANNNNNOOOO !!!
( Giovanni steps out through the curtain full of his typical smug confidence.)
Stew: Well tonight posses a chance for Giovanni to move up the food chain here on Dynasty, as a win over a contender like Ryan Wilson would certainly catch the eye of management here in EAW.
Talib: well from what I hear Giovanni is the kind of guy who doesn’t like drawing attention to himself and his actions. In fact he typically likes to have an alibi as to his whereabouts.
Flannery: Well a victory on live television would certainly establish that alibi, and at the same time get him into the conversation about challenging for the Pure title!
( Giovanni steps through the ropes into the ring. A few moments pass before his music is replaced by “My Way” by Limp Bizkit, which draws even more irony e from the crowd.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Montreal, Quebec , Canada, Weighing In at 200 pounds… RRRRRYYYYYAAAAANNNNNN WWWWIIIILLLLLSSSSOOOOONNNNNN!!!
( Wilson makes his way past the curtain and down the ramp, his cohorts St. Michael and Primeau following close behind.)
Stew: Ever since this new attitude has sprung up in Ryan Wilson he has been able to put together some impressive victories, including last week when he gained a submission win over Ryan Savage!
Talib: For sure and with every win Wilson seems to gain a little more confidence, not that he lacked any to begin with, and that could lead him back to championship gold here in EAW!
Flannery: That and those two massive power houses he has under his thumb! I mean if you want to talk about what’s made a difference, I’d say not only is it Ryan’s new found by any means necessary attitude, but these two enforcers who’ll lay into his opponents the first chance they get!
( Wilson slides into the ring. Once he reaches his feet the referee calls for the bell.)
DING DING DING!!!
Stew: This one underway as both men lock up in the center of the ring, Each competitor jockeying for position in the collar and elbow tie up, Giovanni gains the upper hand as he begins to drive Wilson back in the corner! Wait Wilson uses Luciano’s own momentum against him and reverses at the last moment and now Giovanni is trapped inside the corner! Wilson with right hand, Giovanni ducks underneath and lands a right of his own! A second! Now a third! Luciano has Wilson by the head and takes him over with the snapmare, AND OH WHAT A DROP KICK RIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! Giovanni with a cover trying to end this quickly!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE! TT-
Talib: Wilson kicking out, Luciano now punishing him for doing so as he stomps away at the back of Ryan’s head! HEY PRIMEAU CLIMBING ON TO THE APRON! Luciano jaw jacking with Primeau daring him to make a move, but while his back is turned St. Michael pulling Wilson out of the ring under the bottom rope! Primeau hopping off the apron, Giovanni heading outside after Wilson, St. Michael standing in between Wilson and Luciano, WOAH HAT STRAIGHT RIGHT LANDS RIGHT ON THE NOSE OF ST. MICHAEL!!!
Flannery: That punch making St. Michael stumble a backwards about half a step and bloodying his nose! Wilson sliding into the ring as Primeau sneaks up behind Giovanni! Primeau with a lariat… LUCIANO DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY, PRIMEAU COLLIDES WITH ST. MICHAEL! And now Giovanni ramming Primeau Head first into the steel post! Now with the distractions out of the way this is now a one on one match!
Stew: Luciano sliding back into the ring, But Wilson waiting for him and stomps away he does! Wilson applying a front face lock and drags Giovanni up to his feet, and hits that snap Suplex! Wilson always able to get so much torque and power with that unique technique he uses for the snap Suplex! Ryan up quick as a hiccup and hits the ropes, and lands the flashing elbow drop right to the heart! Wilson now with the lateral press, leg is hooked!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE! TTTTWWWWOOOOOO!
Talib: Kickout by Giovanni! Giovanni getting back up, Wilson a step quicker to his feet and shoots himself off the ropes, OH WHAT A NORTHERN LARIAT! That one landing right on the back of the neck! Giovanni down on the canvas, Wilson charging and hops up onto the middle rope… LIONSAULT!!! BUT GIOVANNI MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! Ryan Landing on his feet! Wilson rushes with a clothesline, Luciano ducks underneath, AND SENDS RYAN HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING WITH A HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX!!
Flannery: Wilson trying to shake off the cobwebs as he raised to a knee… KISS OF DEATH!!! WOW THAT DOUBLE LEG DROPKICK LANDED RIGHT ON THE BUTTON!!! Luciano with a cover!

Giovanni with a leaping stomp right to the spine of Wilson! Ryan clutching at his back, Giovanni crouched down in the corner just waiting to explode, Ryan slowly getting back to his feet, THE HI-HEY ST. MICHAEL GRABBING LUCIANO BY THE ANKLE! Giovanni trying to get free of St. Michael’s grip but just can’t, OH AND WILSON WITH THE CORNER DROPKICK FROM BEHIND!
Talib: Giovanni having the wind squeezed out of him as his chest collided with that turnbuckle! The only thing keeping him standing upright is the ropes! Wilson now hooking Luciano by the head, Ryan up to the middle rope, TORNADO DDT OF DEATH! Luciano planted head first into he canvas! Wilson skipping a cover as he charged towards the ropes, AND THIS TIME THE LIONSAULT CONNECTS!
Flannery: LOOK OUT NOW WILSON HAS THE LEGS! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE FOURTH WALL BREAK! WILSON TRYING TO TURN GIOVANNI OVER, LUCIANO COUNTERS WITH THE SMALL PACKAGE!!!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE!!! TTTTWWWOOOO!!! TTTTHHHHRRRREEEEE-
Stew: Giovanni nearly stole one right there but Wilson able to kickout! Both men getting back to their feet, Wilson throws a right hand, but Giovanni blocks it and Answers back with one of his own! Wilson swinging again, but again it’s countered, this time with a kick to the midsection! Luciano sprints and rebounds off the ropes, LOOKING FOR THAT SPEAR AGAIN… LOU THEZ PRESS!!!

( A replay of Giovanni countering the Superman punch with the spear airs.)
Flannery: Wilson was nearly speared out of his shoes! And now Giovanni steps out to the apron and starts climbing up the turnbuckles! Wilson down on the canvas, Luciano perched up top, 650 splash coming up! BUT LOOK OUT, ST. MICHAEL AND PRIMEAU TRYING TO GET INVOLVED AGAIN!

Stew: Ryan Wilson Had help but just not quite enough as Giovanni Luciano picks up a stunning upset over the between!
Talib: The Family will take any win any way possible but today wasn’t the day for Ryan as Luciano overcomes the odds to pick up victory!
Flannery: still you have to give credit to Ryan but cheaters don’t always prosper! Luciano, he walked away with the victory, in fact when he came off the top for that 650 splash I thought he had it in the bag right there! But Ryan was determined to stay alive he just couldn’t answer the ref after that KILL CONFIRMED knee!
Stew: unfortunately for him it was not to be! Stay tuned ladies and gentlemen there is plenty more action here on Dynasty!
(Dynasty returns from commercial where we see Ronan promoting the difference between Ronin and Ronan. I don’t know what company it was they were endorsing, perhaps it was more of a public service announcement. Any way, the show cuts to the backstage area of the Mercedes Benz Arena. Dynasty backstage interviewer, Michael Belfort, is standing by. To say he looks nervous would be a complete understatement. In fact, Belfort looks downright terrified. He shoots the camera a nervous look before he goes to introduce his next guest.)
Michael Belfort: Um, ladies and gentlemen. Please welcome my guest at this time… Bowie Gray.
(The shot widens and Bowie Gray is seen standing beside Belfort. Bowie stares blankly at the Dynasty interviewer, and Belfort swallows the lump of fear in his throat.)
Michael Belfort: So, uh, last week you made your return to Dynasty by attacking and putting Donovan Cross out of action…
Bowie Gray: And?
Michael Belfort: And, well, we are all kind of wondering why. You haven’t been seen in EAW since Ides of March…
Bowie Gray: So?
Michael Belfort: :skip:
(Bowie remains silent.)
Michael Belfort: What have you been up too?
Bowie Gray: Stuff.
Michael Belfort: …. what kind of stuff?
(Bowie takes a deep breath and he settles his cold, emotionless eyes on Belfort. Belfort shifts his weight to his other foot nervously.)
Bowie Gray: Do you really want to know?
(Belfort didn’t want to know at all, but it was his job to get the answers. He timidly nodded his head.)
Bowie Gray: Well the answer is simple…
(Bowie paused, and that caused Belfort to basically hold his breath. Who knew what the unpredictable Bowie Gray was going to say?)
Bowie Gray: I needed a break.
(A confused look crossed Belfort’s face.)
Michael Belfort: Oh.
(Bowie merely nods.)
Bowie Gray: Pretty simple, right? You see, Devan Dubian was the very cause of my downfall here in Elite Answers Wrestling. Devan Dubian is very the bane of my existence here in Elite Answers Wrestling. Before he came into the picture, I was flying. I was fuckin’ soaring. I was beating the shit out of people and making everyone fear just who the fuck I am. But Devan… fuckin’ Devan! Devan came along and I never won a single fuckin’ match again. That guy was a fuckin’ curse to me HA! I mean I fuckin’ lost to Ryan Wilson and he is one of the biggest goddamn jokes Dynasty has! That guy is a real loser, and a real low point in my career ‘ya know. I mean, I could have lost to fuckin’ anyone, but it had to be to Ryan Fuckin’ Wilson. Ya know, I had high hopes. High fuckin’ hopes for myself. But I had to trust that fuck Dubian. I let him suck me dry like a goddamn leech, and it wasn’t even a good fuckin’ suck either. I needed to step away. I needed to fuckin’ take the time for myself and reevaluate my goals here in EAW. I came real fuckin’ close to winning the PURE Championship back at King of Elite, but beating the shit out of Ms. Extreme was much more fun than carrying around a meaningless championship belt. The break fuckin’ rejuvinated me. I have a renewed sense of purpose now.
Michael Belfort: I see. What’s that purpose?
Bowie Gray: Well, I’m just going to do whatever the fuck I want to here on Friday nights. If I’m scheduled for a match, I’ll wrestle if I wanna fuckin’ wrestle. If I wanna kill someone like I decided to do last week, then I’ll fuckin’ kill someone. Is anyone really gunna fuckin’ miss Donovan Cross? Motherfucker’s been lost since APOCALYPSE had his fuckin’ skull crushed in. As far as I see it, I removed a piece of dead fuckin’ weight from the roster. Ya know, removing deadweight? The thing I shoulda fuckin’ done to Devan Dubian before he fuckin’ destroyed my agenda? Not that my agenda was ever really clear, but that’s the fuckin’ beauty of this sport. You can just show up and do whatever the fuck ya want, and people just go with it because that’s wrestling. That’s how it goes. That’s why it’s just so fuckin’ great.
Michael Belfort: So you have no remorse for what you did to Donovan Cross?
Bowie Gray: Did Cross have any remorse for the heinous actions he was a part of while he was here in EAW? Do you think he fuckin’ cared every time he hid behind that big dumb fuck and wrecked the careers of other Elitists? If ya want my fuckin’ opinion, Cross got exactly what he fuckin’ deserved, and my only regret is that I didn’t take it one step further. But hey. This place is filled with tons of potential victims… countless amounts of people I can torture and destroy. There’s nothing and no one to hold me back now, and I can fuckin’ promise ya that I’m not gonna let anyone stop me from being who the fuck I want to be.
(Belfort stared at Bowie cautiously.)
Michael Belfort: And who is that, Bowie?
(A sinister little smile spread across Bowie’s face.)
Bowie Gray: Wouldn’t ya like to fuckin’ know? HA!
(Bowie glared at Belfort and stepped out of the scene. The Dynasty interviewer was left shaking his head, and Dynasty faded back to the ringside area.)
(“Damage” by Red hits as Ronan Malosi walks his way down to the ring with a purpose, scowling at and intimidating fans sitting in their seats. He rolls into the ring and climbs to the middle rope before letting out a war cry)
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Approaching the ring first, from Capetown, South Africa… weighing in at 230 pounds… RONNANNNNN MALLLLOSSSSIIII!!
Stew: More action coming up next on Dynasty and out first is the impressive Ronan Malosi! You know, Pain For Pride season often gets a bad rap if you’re a newer competitor in EAW, they say it’s very easy to get lost in the shuffle but I see it as quite the opposite. It’s a chance to impress at a time where you’re gonna have more eyeballs on you than ever, it’s a great opportunity!
(“Blood // Water” by grandson begins to play as Bowie Gray steps out from behind the curtain and makes his way to the ring)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Salem, Massachusetts… weighing in at 185 pounds… BOWWWIEEEEE GRRRAYYYYY!!
Bari: You know what? I’m actually in agreement with you, and tonight both of these guys have the opportunity to do just that.
Flannery: Make it 3 for 3! This is the time of the year where you wanna open some eyes. And there are many opportunities for our newer elitists at Pain For Pride, whether it be Cash in the Vault or the 24/7 Battle Royal… you can REALLY make a name for yourself!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew: There’s the bell… AND IMMEDIATELY THE BIG RONAN MILOSI LUNCES TOWARDS HIS OPPONENT!! COLLAR AND ELBOW TIE UP HERE… PUSHING HIM BACK INTO THE CORNER!! The referee steps into separate the two men… BUT NOT BEFORE RONAN CAN GET A BIG SHOT IN!! A RIGHT HAND STRAIGHT TO THE JAW!! The referee not pleased with Ronan here, yelling at him as Ronan takes a few steps back into the center of the ring… AND WITH THE REFEREE’S DISTRACTION, BOWIE IS GONNA TAKE ADVANTAGE!! HE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER AND COMES CHARGING AT HIS OPPONENT WITH A FLYING FOREARM!!
Bari: BUT RONAN DOESN’T GO DOWN!! HE’S STAGGERED… HE FALLS INTO THE ROPES, AND BOWIE… I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S SHOCK OR AMAZEMENT ON HIS FACE THAT RONAN DIDN’T GO DOWN, BUT HE GOES AT HIM AGAIN… THIS TIME A CLOTHESLINE AND IT SENDS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE OUTSIDE!! AND NOW LOOK OUT HERE, BOWIE RUNNING OFF THE ROPES… NOW DIVING OVER THEM, AND INTO A CORKSCREW PLANCHA!! TAKING RONAN DOWN AGAIN!! BOWIE QUICKLY GETS RONAN BACK TO HIS FEET AND ROLLS HIM BACK INTO THE RING, FOLLOWING QUICKLY BEHIND… AND NOW HE HOOKS THE LEG!!
ONEEE!!… TWOOO… NO!! RONAN GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!
Flannery: This match off to a quick start… And Bowie looks to keep that up as he delivers a kick to the head as Ronan was attempting to make it back to his feet! Bowie may not have the size advantage but he certainly has the speed one! Ronan looking to make it back to his feet again… AND AGAIN BOWIE COMES CHARGING, LOOKING FOR ANOTHER KICK… BUT THIS TIME RONAN CATCHES HIM!! RONAN HAS A HOLD OF THE LEG, AND WITH THE OTHER HAND HE WRAPS HIS HAND UNDER THE ARM OF BOWIE, LIFTING HIM UP… AND BACK DOWN INTO THE CANVAS!!
Stew: And that right there is why no matter how big of a speed advantage you may have, you’ll never beat the power advantage! Bowie sits up and shakes his head… he’s aided to his feet by Ronan who now unloads with a chop across the chest, WOW what sound that made! It forces Bowie into the corner… AND RONAN COMES CHARGING, THROWING HIS BODY INTO THE AIR AND LOOKING TO CRASH DOWN ONTO BOWIE… BUT BOWIE IS ABLE TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY!! RONAN CONNECTS WITH NOTHING BUT TURNBUCKLE!!
Bari: WHAT WAS THAT YOU WERE SAYING, STEW?! RONAN IS HURT, BOWIE HOPS UP ONTO THE TOP ROPE… HE DIVES OFF… CROSSBODY, IT CONNECTS!! ANOTHER COVER!!
ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!! AGAIN RONAN KICKS OUT!!
Bari: The longer the match goes at this pace the more it’ll favor Bowie! Ronan makes his way over to the ropes where he gets himself to his feet… AND HERE COMES BOWIE AGAIN, BUT RONAN DIPS DOWN AND SENDS HIM OVER THE ROPES AND OUT… NO!! BOWIE ABLE TO LAND ON THE APRON!!… HE CATCHES RONAN WITH A FOREARM TO THE JAW… NOW LEAPING OVER THE ROPES, LOOKING FOR A SUNSET FLIP… OH BUT NO!! RONAN WITH A KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE!!
Flannery: YIKES!! That didn’t look good, Ronan pulls Bowie up to his feet… AND WITH THE OTHER ARM DELIVERS A HARD CLOTHESLINE, FLIPPING HIM INSIDE OUT!! The complexion of this match has just taken a DRASTIC turn! Ronan isn’t pleased, he gets Bowie up to his feet again… AND DELIVERS A SECOND CLOTHESLINE, ONLY THIS TIME HE DOESN’T LET GO OF THE ARM… HE PULLS HIM UP FOR A THIRD TIME… AND DELIVERS YET ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE, A TRIFECTA!! Bowie rolls onto his stomach, not in a good place here, he tries to push himself up and shake the cobwebs out of his head!
Stew: But the Samoan Juggernaut stops him in his tracks, a clubbing blow over the back and Bowie again collapses down to the canvas!… Ronan wraps his arms around Bowie and gets him to his feet, his arms around his waist… LOOKS TO LIFT HIM UP, NOT SURE WHAT HE HAS IN MIND HERE… AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE MAY NEVER KNOW AS BOWIE IS ABLE TO FIGHT OUT OF IT!! SENDING A FEW ELBOWS INTO THE SIDE OF RONAN’S HEAD AND RONAN HAS NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO LET GO AND DROP BOWIE WHO’S ABLE TO LAND ON HIS FEET!!
Bari: AND NOW BOWIE DELIVERS A KICK TO SIDE OF THE KNEE… A SECOND… AND NOW A KICK TO THE OTER KNEE, BOWIE TRYING TO GET RONAN OFF HIS FEET HERE… A LOT OF POWER COMES FROM THE LEGS AND IF HE CAN IMMOBILIZE RONAN’S HERE… THAT’LL GO A LONG WAY IN GETTING HIM THE VICTORY HERE TONIGHT!!… RONAN GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT HE MISSES WILDLY, BOWIE SNEAKS BEHIND HIM AND DELIVERS ANOTHER KICK BUT THIS TIME IT’S TO THE BACK OF RONAN’S KNEE… WHICH IS ABLE TO BRING HIM DOWN!!
Flannery: RONAN IS DOWN ON HIS KNEES, AND NOW BOWIE LOOKS FOR SOMETHING BIG… HE RUNS OFF THE ROPES IN ONE DIRECTION, NOW ANOTHER BUILDING UP A LOT OF SPEED HERE… NOW HE COMES CHARGING AT RONAN… LEAPING TOWARDS HIM… AND HE’S CAUGHT!! RONAN CATCHES HIM… AND HE DELIVERS LISA!! THE TRIBUTE TO HIS MOTHER!! BOWIE GETS PLANTED AND LITERALLY BOUNCES OFF THE CANVAS… WHAT AN IMPACT THAT WAS, I WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED IF YOU CAN SEE HIS IMPRESSION IN THAT RING!! RONAN ROLLS BOWIE OVER ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG, THIS ONE IS OVER FOLKS!!
ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THREEEE!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Damage” begins to play as Ronan gets to his feet. His arm is raised in victory by the referee before he exits the ring and heads back up the ramp)
Stephie Love: Your winner… RONNNANNNNN MAALLLLLOOOOSSSIIII!!
Stew: JUST LIKE THAT IT’S OVER!! And there you go Bari, I stand by what I said earlier… speed was literally beaten by power right there! Ronan plucked Bowie out of the sky!
Bari: This time Stew, this time…
(Dynasty returns from break and cuts to the backstage area. Fresh off a victory against Ryan Wilson, Giovanni Luciano is seen in the locker room . He is collecting his belongings, but as he packs his stuff his gaze keeps shifting towards the bench. Sitting on the bench is Gio’s phone, and it’s been steadily ringing for the last five minutes or so.)
Gio Luciano (muttering): Fuggedaboutit… I’m not trying to answer that…
(Gio straightens up and grabs his phone from the bench. He hits ‘decline’ on the call and pockets the phone. Literally seconds later, it starts buzzing again.)
Gio Luciano: No. No. No. No. They’re gunna want an explanation but I got none. I got one, but they’re not gunna like it. I’m done with this waste management business. Done.
(Gio once again declines the phone call, but the paranoia is written all over his face. He pockets the phone once again, but obviously it continues to ring. Gio shuts his eyes and clenches his fists. A few seconds pass and he opens his eyes, takes a deep breath, and pulls the phone from his pocket. His eyes go wide and the phone falls from his hands as he sees the name on the Caller I.D. It reads ‘The Don.’)
Gio Luciano: FIGLIO DI PUTTANA!
(Gio jumps a mile as StarrStan walks into the scene. The general manager of Dynasty looks at Gio and shakes his head.)
StarrStan: I saw what you did out there, you know. Wow.
(Gio’s eyes widen and he looks from StarrStan, to his phone screen, and this back up at Stan. He declines the call, throws the phone in his bag, and holds up his hands. How could he possibly know?!)
Gio Luciano: Merda! Look StarrStan, let me explain. You see, once upon a time before I ever discovered the outlet that was professional wrestling, I had another profes-
(StarrStan holds his hands up.)
StarrStan: Look Gio. I don’t need an explanation. You have to know that every action has consequences. Now I kno-
Gio Luciano: Look. I swear that’s not the kinda life I wanna live anymore. Porca vacca! You gotta believe me! I’m doing everything I can to try and leave that kinda thing behind.
StarrStan: :skip: Well I would hope that you would WANT to continue the momentum you had from your match earlier and not leave any of those behind.
Gio Luciano: :skip: My match? The one tonight? Against that jamoke Ryan Wilson?
StarrStan: What did you think I was talking about?
(Gio did not answer that question but his posture relaxed considerably. StarrStan just shakes his head, clearly confused about the situation. Nevertheless, he sought Gio out for a reason, and he had some news for him.)
StarrStan: Anyway, I just wanted to find you and let you know that as a result of your win over the number one contender to the PURE Championship earlier tonight, I’m giving you a chance to get a little gold of your own.
(Gio looked a little surprised by this.)
StarrStan: At Gateway to Glory, you’ll be facing either SOSA Henderson or Korey Gaines for the New Breed Championship. How does that sound?
(An actual smile broke across Gio’s ruggedly handsome face.)
Gio Luciano: I think one of those two ballsacs is gunna get whacked in a couple of weeks and I’m gunna bring some gold home to ‘Jersey. That’s incredible. I appreciate this.
(StarrStan and Gio shake hands.)
StarrStan: You got a bright future, kid, and I hope you don’t do anything to screw it up. Hai voluto la bicicletta? E adesso pedala!
Gio Luciano: :wow: You wanted the bike? Now you’ve got to ride it. That’s a rather sarcastic Italian expression, sir. But I get what you were going for.
(StarrStan’s face turned a little red, and he cleared his throat.)
StarrStan: Yes, well. In plain ole English, good luck. I look forward to seeing what you do with the opportunity.
(StarrStan exits the lockerroom and Gio rakes a hand through his hair. He finally glances down at his stuff and sees that his phone is continuing to ring. Taking a deep breath, he snatches the phone up and slams it down on the bench, shattering the screen.)
Gio Luciano: I’m done. This is my life now.
(He grabs his stuff up and exits the lockerroom. The show transitions and opens up after that to see Michael Belfort holding a microphone and standing in front of a Locker room door with EAW’s Dynasty logo on it.)
Michael Belfort: Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m standing here hoping to catch a quick interview with…HERE SHE IS
(In the frame enters Ms. Extreme holding her championship on her shoulder as the fans go nuts.)
Michael Belfort: Hey, Ms. Extreme! Is there anyway I can snag a quick word in with you before your big match with Darkane?
Ms. Extreme: I mean…I literally was heading to the entrance way to go and actually have said match with Darkane but I guess I can spare some time, what’s up Michael?
Michael Belfort: I just wanna ask how you feel about your Gateway to Glory opponent Ryan Wilson’s performance tonight in a losing effort against Giovanni Luciano. Do you think he has what it takes to take that Pure title from you?
Ms. Extreme: I am a fighting champion and I am willing to put this Pure championship against any and all comers. If I wasn’t, think about all the things guys like Darkane would say about me holding this belt and not fighting like a champion should. Ryan Wilson is not a threat to my title reign. I saw him get as much help as any man would ever need and he still could not put away Giovanni Luciano and he thinks he can hold a candle to me? Seriously, let me ask you! Would you be afraid of loud mouth Ryan Wilson if you were me?
Michael Belfort: Um…I…well
Ms. Extreme: The answer is simple. You wouldn’t. Matter of a fact, I’m pretty sure you would be a more competitive opponent for me than Ryan ever will be. Wilson better SHOW UP and bring everything he has or else he’ll tapping to the AVA LOCK in record time! Now that’s what you call a mic drop!
(Ms Extreme smirks before leaving the area and heading to the ring. We cut back to the announcers desk as the arena is buzzing waiting for Ms Extreme and Darkane.)
Stew-O: Ryan better bring it because Ms Extreme was not impressed by his showing here tonight!
(We return to ring side as we see Stephie Love in the ring. “Wizard in Black” — Electric Wizard begins to play through the speakers. Darkane stands on top of the ramp with a scary and intimidating look on his face. Almost like he is not sweating this match whatsoever. It’s pretty safe that he feels confidence and expects nothing of his opponent going into the match.)
Stephie Love: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL —
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Stephie Love: Introducing first…from New Orleans, Louisiana… weighing in 234 pounds… he is “The Grave Worm” .. DAAAARRRRRRKKKAAAAANNNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!
Stew-O: Here’s a man, who has a date with Theron Nikolas at Gateway to Glory in a few weeks! He was announced by Dynasty General Manager Starr Stan as Theron’s next opponent! I’m not going to argue if Darkane is deserving of this title shot! In some sort of way, you can say that this is his rematch for the Answers World Championship, which he lost at Operation: Doomsday back in October!
Flannery McCoy: Gateway to Glory can be a huge game changer for one of Pain for Pride’s main events, if he manages to capture the title! People would think that stuff never happens, but title changes can happen within a few weeks before Pain for Pride and that is what makes it scary!
(“Gangsta” — New Years Day replaces “Wizard in Black” as Ms. Extreme stands on top of the ramp with the PURE Championship on her waist. Ms. Extreme looks around the sold out arena before shifting her focus to Darkane in the center of the ring.)
Stephie Love: Introducing his opponent…from Calabasas, California, she is the EAW PURE Champion… “The Chameleon” …. MS. EXXXXTTTRRRREEEEMMMMMEEEEEEEE!!
Flannery McCoy: Ms. Extreme prides herself of being the woman who is more than willing to shift her wrestling moveset if it means keeping that PURE Championship on her shoulder! That is where the nickname “The Chameleon” came from. Probably inspired from her back-and-forth word battle with Shaker Jones at the Grand Rampage as he called her that, but it seems to be the perfect animal to describe Ms. Extreme at the moment!
Stew-O: Ms. Extreme has went through a perfect transformation in this championship reign, but it doesn’t stop there! She has her sights on breaking the longest reigning PURE Championship record held by Ares Vendetta. According to our calculations, if Ms. Extreme is still PURE Champion Pain for Pride week, she breaks the record. The go-home show for Pain for Pride on Dynasty, she will be two days shy of tying Ares’ record. I think this woman would love nothing more than to be part of history! But, she’s gotta survive this match with Darkane in order to progress with those wishes!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(Ms. Extreme and Darkane stand toe-to-toe in the middle of the ring. Obviously, there is a height difference between the two competitors, but Ms. Extreme is not letting that stop her.)
Flannery McCoy: Ms. Extreme shoves Darkane towards the ropes, but Darkane remains with his feet planted on the mat! I don’t think that this was the best decision to go with — Darkane goes forward and swings at Ms. Extreme, but Ms. Extreme ducks the clothesline and delivers a side hand chop to Darkane’s chest! Ms. Extreme connects with another chop to Darkane as stumbles him back, but he instantly catches himself from falling back as Ms. Extreme delivers another chop! She connects with another chop before getting Darkane by his arm! Ms. Extreme is trying to whip Darkane to the ropes, but Darkane is a little on the heavier side when it comes trying to connect with an Irish whip!
Stew-O: Darkane counters as he whips Ms. Extreme to the ropes! Ms. Extreme rebounds off the ropes as Darkane goes for a clothesline, but Ms. Extreme manages to duck the clothesline! MS. EXTREME SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE CORNER AND CONNECTS WITH A DIVING CALF KICK, BUT DARKANE MANAGES TO CATCH MS. EXTREME BEFORE HOSTING UP THE PURE CHAMPION AND CONNECTING WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX! MS. EXTREME CRASHES AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE! DARKANE GETS MS. EXTREME UP BY GRASPING ONTO TO HER HAIR! GRASP ON TO IT ANY HARDER AND HER HAIRLINE GO BACK AND I DON’T THINK ANYONE WANTS FOR THAT TO HAPPEN! DARKANE CONNECTS WITH A HEADBUTT! IT SEEMED LIKE THAT HAD ANOTHER FORCE TO KNOCK MS. EXTREME TO THE GROUND! BUT, DARKANE YANKS HER UP BY HER HAIR AGAIN! DARKANE WITH A HIP TOSS AS HE USES MS. EXTREME’S HAIR AS SOMETHING TO CLUTCH ON AS HE FLIPS HER TO A SEATED POSITION! DARKANE GETS RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HUGE BIG BOOT! MS. EXTREME IS ON HER BACK AS DARKANE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Flannery McCoy: …MS. EXTREME GETS A RIGHT SHOULDER UP AT ONE! DARKANE GETS MS. EXTREME TO A SEATED POSITION AS HE IS RIGHT BEHIND HER BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SERIES OF ELBOW SHOTS TO MS. EXTREME’S LEFT SHOULDER! DARKANE IS DELIVERING THOSE ELBOWS WITH SUCH FORCE!
Stew-O: DARKANE IS GAUGING MS. EXTREME’S RIGHT EYE! IS THAT EVEN LEGAL IN THIS MATCH? THE OFFICIAL IS PUTTING A STOP TO IT AS HE HAS A WORD WITH DARKANE! MS. EXTREME IS CHECKING HER RIGHT EYE, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE HER EYE IS NOT BLEEDING! EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE IN PLACE! THE OFFICIAL COULD HAVE DISQUALIFIED DARKANE FOR THAT, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE HE IS GIVING DARKANE A WARNING! Darkane brushes off the warning as he goes right after Ms. Extreme, who is slowly rising back to her feet! Darkane gets Ms. Extreme by her right arm before whipping her towards the ropes! Ms. Extreme rebounds off the ropes effortlessly as slides underneath Darkane’s legs! Before Darkane get turn around, Ms. Extreme connects with a dropkick as she sends Darkane forward! Darkane collides with the ropes as he falls to his knees! The upper part of his body is trapped along the second row of ropes! Ms. Extreme hops over the top rope and stand in front of Darkane before deliver a harsh knee to the former Answers World Champion’s face! Ms. Extreme gets a good grasp of Darkane’s hair before deliver her knee against his skull! Ms. Extreme is being relentless with these knees, but Darkane is not falling to his back! MS. EXTREME PULLS DARKANE BY HIS HEAD AS SHE MANAGES TO GET ALL OF HIS WEIGHT ON THE APRON! MS. EXTREME GETS ON DARKANE AS IT SEEMS LIKE SHE IS TRYING TO CONNECT WITH A REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER, BUT DARKANE MANAGES TO SHIFT MS. EXTREME’S POSITION AS HE GETS HER IN A POWERBOMB POSITION! :lupe:
Flannery McCoy: DARKANE WITH THE CASKET CLOSER — THE TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER ON THE PURE CHAMPION! MS. EXTREME GOES HEAD FIRST ON THE APRON! THE IMPACT OF THE CASKET CLOSER MANAGED TO GET MS. EXTREME TO ROLL ONTO RING SIDE! DARKANE COULD LEAVE MS. EXTREME AND POSSIBLY WIN THIS MATCH BY COUNT OUT, BUT I DON’T THINK HE IS GOING TO SETTLE FOR THAT! HE WANTS TO DEFEAT MS. EXTREME WITHOUT AN OUNCE OF CONTROVERSY! HE WANTS TO DEFEAT MS. EXTREME BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT HE IS BETTER THAN HER! DARKANE STEPS OFF THE APRON AND GETS MS. EXTREME UP! HE GETS MS. EXTREME BY HER RIGHT ARM BEFORE WHIPPING HER TOWARDS THE STEEL STEPS! THE SOUND OF THE STEEL CLASHING AGAINST MS. EXTREME’S SPINE DID NOT SOUND PRETTY, STEW! THE LOOK ON THE CHAMPION’S FACE IS NOT A PRETTY ONE! DARKANE DOESN’T LOOK LIKE HE IS PLANNING TO GIVE MS. EXTREME ANY TIME TO BREATHE AS HE RUNS TOWARDS HER AND CONNECTS WITH KNEE AGAINST MS. EXTREME’S SKULL —
Stew-O: Ms. Extreme manages to move out of the way on time! Just barely, Flannery! Darkane’s right knee crashes against the steel step! This is one of the first times we are seeing Darkane react to the pain in this match up! Darkane is grasping onto his right knee! He hasn’t fallen to the ground like a child when he has scraped his knee, but this could be an opening that Ms. Extreme needed to shift the match in her favor! Ms. Extreme connects with a dropkick onto that injured right knee! Darkane crashes down to his knees! Ms. Extreme takes a step back before connecting with meteora as that takes Darkane to his back! MS. EXTREME IS UNLOADING SOME FIERY PUNCHES ONTO DARKANE! MS. EXTREME TRANSITIONS THOSE PUNCHES WITH SOME NASTY ELBOW SHOTS TO HIS FACE! MS. EXTREME IS GOING HAYWIRE WITH THEM AS SHE MANAGES TO GET DARKANE UP BY HIS HAIR — ALMOST LIKE A LITTLE REVENGE FOR HIM DOING THE SAME WITH HER EARLIER IN THIS MATCH! MS. EXTREME SLAMS DARKANE’S HEAD AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE APRON AS HE GOES BACK! MS. EXTREME PULLS DARKANE IN AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A FLATLINER AS HIS FACE COLLIDES WITH THE EDGE OF THE APRON! MS. EXTREME TRIES TO GET DARKANE UP AGAIN, BUT DARKANE SHOVES HER AWAY FROM HIM FOR A SLIGHT SECOND! MS. EXTREME GOES RIGHT AFTER DARKANE AGAIN —
Flannery McCoy: Darkane with a discus forearm on the PURE Champion! Ms. Extreme drops down like a sack of potatoes! I did not see that coming! It seemed like Ms. Extreme was going to continue wearing Darkane down, but someone like Darkane is difficult to get down and Ms. Extreme is realizing that! Darkane is slowly rising his feet as he gets Ms.Extreme back to a vertical base! He gets her by her head before running towards the steel ring post! He throws Ms. Extreme towards the steel ring post, but Ms. Extreme manages to halt herself and prevent her skull from colliding with that post! DARKANE GOES RIGHT AFTER HER, BUT MS. EXTREME USES ALL OF HER STRENGTH TO THROW DARKANE HEAD FIRST AGAINST THE STEEL RING POST! THE SOUND OF HIS SKULL COLLIDING WITH THAT POST IS DISTURBING! MS. EXTREME GETS DARKANE UP, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE SHE IS STRUGGLING WITH THAT! MS. EXTREME COULD LEAVE DARKANE OUT THERE! HE IS UNCONSCIOUS AT THIS POINT IN THE MATCH! HE WOULD FOR SURE BE DOWN FOR THE TEN COUNT! MS. EXTREME COULD LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY!
Stew-O: Ms. Extreme doesn’t want a cheap victory like that! She wants to prove that she can defeat Darkane! She wants to defeat that she can stand toe-to-toe with some of the best on Dynasty and possibly EAW! This is the type of competition that we see Ms. Extreme bring her best! Ms. Extreme manages to use whatever strength to roll Darkane inside the ring! Ms. Extreme slides inside the ring afterwards as she goes for the cover! This could be it, Flannery!
Flannery McCoy: DARKANE KICKS OUT AS HE MANAGES TO SHOVE MS. EXTREME OFF OF HIM! HOW IS DARKANE STILL IN THIS MATCH? MS. EXTREME KNOWS THAT SHE CAN’T GET FRUSTRATED RIGHT NOW! SHE IS GOING TO NEED TO DIG DEEPER IF SHE WANTS TO LOOK FOR SOME WAY TO GET DARKANE DOWN ENOUGH TO WIN THE MATCH! MS. EXTREME BEGINS TO THROW SOME ELBOW SHOTS TO DARKANE’S FACE! SHE IS NAILING THOSE ELBOW SHOTS TO DARKANE’S RIGHT EYE! REGARDLESS OF HOW THIS MATCH GOES, DARKANE IS GOING TO BE LEFT WITH A FEW BRUISES AND POSSIBLY A SHINER TO REMEMBER THIS MATCH! Ms. Extreme gets back to her feet as she takes a few steps back towards the corner! She is gesturing for Darkane to get back to his feet! The former Hardcore Champion gets back to his feet as he turns himself around! MS. EXTREME USES THE CORNER ONCE AGAIN TO CONNECT WITH A DIVING CALF KICK! SHE SUCCESSFULLY MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH THE MOVE ON DARKANE AS THAT GETS HIM TO HIS KNEES! MS. EXTREME SEEMS LIKE SHE IS PLAYING A TRICK OUT OF HER SISTER, CONSUELA ROSE AVA’S PLAYBOOK! MS. EXTREME CONNECTS WITH SOME SHOOT KICKS TO DARKANE’S FACE! THEY ARE ENOUGH TO ROCK HIM BACK, BUT NOT TO HIS BACK! MS. EXTREME TAKES A STEP BACK BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A GIANT SUPERKICK AS THAT TAKES DARKANE TO HIS BACK! MS. EXTREME HAS HER EYES SET ON THE TOP ROPE! IT SEEMS LIKE MS. EXTREME IS MORE THAN LOOKING FORWARD TO CLOSING THIS MATCH! DARKANE IS IN PERFECT POSITION AS MS. EXTREME HEADS FOR THE TOP ROPE!
Stew-O: MS. EXTREME IS SITUATING HERSELF ON THE TOP ROPE! MS. EXTREME FROM THE TOP ROPE — A BLIND FURY — THE DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON DARKANE!
Flannery McCoy: DARKANE MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY, BUT MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO CATCH HERSELF FROM COLLIDING TO THE MAT! MS. EXTREME TURNS HERSELF AROUND AS DARKANE CONNECTS WITH YAKUZA KICK AS THAT TAKES MS. EXTREME TO THE CORNER! DARKANE DOES NOT WASTE ANY TIME AS HE GOES RIGHT AFTER THE PURE CHAMPION WITH A STINGER SPLASH AS MS. EXTREME STUMBLES FORWARD! DARKANE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH ENTER THE GRAVE, THAT EVENFLOW DDT AS HE PLANS MS. EXTREME SKULL FIRST ON THE MAT! THIS MAY END THE MATCH!
Stew-O: Ms. Extreme gets a shoulder up! Darkane is trying not to let his frustrations get the best of him! Darkane begins to club away with a series of punches to her skull! He begins to bash his elbow against her skull! Ms. Extreme has her series of concussions and hopefully, it doesn’t get reignited from this match! Both competitors have brought everything to the table with this match! Any one of them could walk away with the victory! DARKANE GETS MS. EXTREME TO A VERTICAL BASE, BUT MS. EXTREME THROWS A FOREARM TO DARKANE! DARKANE THROWS A FOREARM TO MS. EXTREME! MS. EXTREME THROWS A FOREARM TO DARKANE! DARKANE TO MS. EXTREME! DARKANE! MS. EXTREME! DARKANE! MS. EXTREME! MS. EXTREME! MS. EXTREME! MS. EXTREME STANDS BACK BEFORE CONNECTING WITH ANOTHER SUPERKICK ON THE FORMER ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! DARKANE STUMBLES BACK IN RESPONSE, BUT REGAINS HIS BALANCE AS MS. EXTREME USES THE ASSISTANCE OF THE ROPES TO CONNECT WITH A FLYING SPINNING HEEL KICK! DARKANE IS DOWN, BUT MS. EXTREME TAKES HERSELF DOWN IN THE PROCESS! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN AS MS. EXTREME SLOWLY RISES BACK TO HER FEET! IT SEEMS LIKE SHE’S GOING FOR THE TOP ROPE AGAIN! SHE SEEMS TO BE GOING FOR ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO CONNECT WITH A BLIND FURY!
(Ms. Extreme sets herself up on the top rope for her finisher, but the crowd is heard going into a frenzy for some reason as Ms. Extreme looks at the ramp…)
Flannery McCoy: It’s Ryan Wilson, Stew! Over the past few weeks, he has shown his intentions of going after the PURE Championship! Ryan Wilson is going down the ramp as Ms. Extreme is yelling for Ryan to go away! Ms. Extreme doesn’t want to deal with Ryan Wilson!
Stew-O: DARKANE RISES BACK TO HIS FEET! HE MANAGES TO GET MS. EXTREME IN A MILITARY PRESS POSITION! CHECK OUT THE HEIGHT MS. EXTREME IS IN AT THE MOMENT! MS. EXTREME MANAGES TO GET OUT OF THE MILITARY PRESS POSITION AS SHE STANDS IN FRONT OF DARKANE! HAVING DARKANE BEHIND HER IS THE LAST PLACE SHE WANTS TO BE, FLANNERY!
Flannery McCoy: DEVIL MAY CRY TO MS. EXTREME! THAT DEADLY SPEAR TO THE SPINE CATCHES HER OFF GUARD! DARKANE GOES FOR THE COVER ON MS. EXTREME!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Wizard in Black” plays through the speakers once again as Darkane gets off of Ms. Extreme. The official raises his hand in victory. Ms. Extreme is clutching to her lower back in pain. That Devil May Cry is a bitch for sure. Ryan Wilson is chuckling ring side. He feels pretty proud that he managed to cost Ms. Extreme the match with his presence.)
Stephie Love: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… DARRRRRRKKKAAAAANNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!
Stew-O: Darkane with an impressive victory over the PURE Champion! Although, I don’t think he will be content with the victory happening in a controversial way, but a victory is a victory! Ms. Extreme wanted to face some of the best on Dynasty and she got that this week, but feel short of the prize!
Flannery McCoy: There could be arguments from both sides over if Darkane would have gotten the victory regardless of Ryan Wilson’s interference, but Ms. Extreme had Darkane’s number on a few occasions, but she proved in this match that she is more than willing to rise to the occasion when facing top tier competition. As for Darkane, if he manages to connect with that Devil May Cry on Theron Nikolas at Gateway to Glory, he will be moving on to headline Pain for Pride!
(Darkane celebrates his win as Dynasty goes to commercial break. This commercial is one for McDonald’s and it stars Mark Michaels introducing a revolutionary sandwich; The McRib with Bacon! We come back to Dynasty to catch Stephie back in the ring.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen or next match is the main event! It’s a tag team match scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Stephie Love: Our first contestant…
(“Gangster’s Paradise” by Coolio plays as fans get on their feet. Out walks Thadd on his sandals and he nods his head to the music. He turns his SnapBack around so it’s facing backwards and strolls to the ring as fans cheer.)
Stephie Love: On his way to the ring from Greenwich, Connecticut, Now residing in Woodbridge, New Jersey…he’s weighing in at 220 pounds! THAAAAAAD BLAAAAAAAZEVICH!!!
Stew-O: This is one of the biggest matches Thadd has had to date! Normally seen with his FloBros partner, he’s rolling with a new guy by his side. An Ace up his sleeve if you wanna be technical!
Talib Bari: He went from being carried by one bro to being carried by Jamie!
(Thadd rolls in to the ring, gets to his feet, and kicks his sandals all the way in to the third row as fans mob to catch them and keep them as collectibles.)
Stephie Love: AND HIS PARTNER!
(“Ultimate Battle” by Zenta [EAW EDIT] strummed through the speakers as everyone in the building got to their feet and the lights began to flash to the beat of the music. Out steps Jamie O’Hara in his infamous black leather jacket and all black attire. He points to the ravenous fans as he begins to walk down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: On his way to the ring from Melbourne, Australia, Now residing in Los Angeles, California…he’s weighing in at 190 pounds! THE ACE!!! JAAAAAAAMIE OOOOOOOOOOOOO’HARAAAAAA!!!!
Flannery McCoy: The one true ACE of EAW and this years Grand Rampage winner! To do what he did in front of his hometown crowd was one of the crowning moments of his already illustrious career. But, can he cap off his monumental 2019 campaign by dethroning the God Emperor when that title he holds is on the line?
(Jamie rolls in the ring and greets his partner as they discuss some strategies. The arena lights go dark and “Jus’ Cos You Got Power” by Motörhead blares as fans begin to immediately boo. As propaganda against EAW flashes on screen, Mark Michaels appears from behind the curtain. A stone cold gaze is on his face as he walks down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: AND THEIR OPPONENTS…FIRST UP, he’s from Minneapolis, Minnesota! Weighing 240 pounds! HE IS THE LETHAL INJECTION! MAAAAARK MICHAEEEELS!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Mark claims he was living the dream when he first joined EAW. But now he claims it’s been turned into a nightmare that has sucked his soul away at every instance. Mark wants to tear down EAW and he isn’t letting anyone get in his way!
(Mark stands by ringside as he stares at Thadd and then at Jamie with a pure gaze of hatred. “I Hope You Suffer” by AFI plays as all attention is on to the stage one last time. The entire building is booing as Theron Nikolas walks from backstage. His AWC title shines bright as the lights hit it.)
Stephie Love: AND FINALLY…FROM EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA! Weighing in at 220 Pounds! He is THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION! THE GOD EMPEROR!!! THEROOOOON NIKOOOOOLAAAAAASSS!!!
Talib Bari: The AWC champion wasn’t much of a talker this week but what else needs to be said about Theron Nikolas? He has held this title for a while and is one of the most calculated wrestlers to ever step foot in EAW!
Flannery McCoy: This May be true but can the God Emperor and Mark Michaels take care of business when it’s The Bro and The Ace standing on the opposite side of the ring?
(Theron and Mark both climb on to the apron as Jamie and Thadd stand in the ring. Nikolas and Mark stare at each other and Mark enters the ring. Thadd begs Jamie for him to wait and O’Hara obliges. Thadd and Mark stand face to face as the ref calls for the bell.)
Stew-O: Starting off this main event on Friday Night Dynasty with Mark Michaels and Thadd! Mark was very vocal about his disdain for Thadd and all of EAW and he’s prepared to back up his words right here. Mark and Thadd grapple and Blazevich manages to get Marks back! Thadd goes to lift Mark off his feet but NOPE! Michaels throws an elbow to block the move! Blazevich releases his grip and the two grapple once more but this time Mark gets his hands around Thadd and tries to German Suplex him TO NO AVAIL! Thadd flips right out of it and lands on his feet as Mark gets back to his own feet as well!
Talib Bari: Both men are the bigger members of their teams with Mark having the weight advantage over everyone here by over 20 pounds! Michaels and Thadd sprint at each other but Michaels stops Thadd’s clothesline attempt and catches him with a hard right hand that stuns Blazevich.
Stew-O: Michaels gains control and he Irish whips Thadd off the ropes. KNEELING FACEBREAKER! I guess Theron isn’t the only one that wants his opponents kneeling as Mark catches Thadd right in the face.
Flannery McCoy: Blazevich leans back but stays in his feet. Michaels sprints and floors him with a clothesline! Mark gets Thadd back to his feet and throws a wild discus punch but…THADD DUCKS! Blazevich catches Michaels turning around…
Talib Bari: SUPERKICK! MICHAELS DROPS RIGHT WHERE HE WAS STANDING AND THADD GOES FOR THE COVER!
Flannery McCoy: WAY TOO SOON BUT SMART MOVE BY THE LEAST EXPERIENCED MAN IN THIS MATCH! Thadd gets Mark to his feet and hoists him on to his shoulders…DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Mark looks flat on the mat as Jamie cheers and Theron looks disgusted! Thadd asks Jamie does he want a tag but Jamie tells him to keep going! Thadd stomps at Marks grounded body before helping him back up. He’s looking for a specific move now as he gets behind Mark once again. He’s hooked him! THE BROTEIN SHAKE! NO! MARK FIGHTS OUT OF IT! He breaks the potential dragon Suplex and turns around facing Thadd!
Stew-O: SPINEBUSTER! Thadd crashes to the mat as Mark tries to catch his breath while Thadd is flat and out. Theron sees his chance and screams for Mark to tag him in but Mark isn’t done just yet!
(Mark goes to the turnbuckle away from Theron and Jamie as he gets to the second rope and points at Thadd in the middle of the ring.)
Talib Bari: DIVING LEG DROP! Mark puts all his weight down on Thadd’s neck! He goes for a cover!
Flannery McCoy: Only a two count! I bet Thadd wishes he tagged out now!
Stew-O: He definitely should try to if given the chance. But I doubt he gets a chance as Mark drags Blazevich by the hair back to his team’s corner and tags in THE GOD EMPEROR! The crowd immediately boos as Theron begins to stomp away at Thadd who is flat on his back in the wrong corner!
Flannery McCoy: Jamie is extending his hand but Theron doesn’t look like he’s going to allow Thadd to get anywhere near him!
Stew-O: Theron gets Thadd up to his feet. He lays The Bro against the turnbuckle as Mark slaps Thadd’s chest and holds him in place. Theron walks directly towards Jamie who reaches to get his hands on Nikolas but can’t. Nikolas shakes his head as he stares at Jamie O’Hara with disdain in his eyes!
Theron Nikolas: KNEEL BEFORE THE GOD EMPEROR!!!
Talib Bari: Theron turns away from Jamie and charged full speed at Thadd!
Flannery McCoy: EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! He nearly took his head off with that one!
Stew-O: Theron watches as Thadd drops and him and Mark Michaels realize they have control of the match! Theron tags in Mark as Michaels enters back in the ring and they both hook Thadd for what looks to be a double Suplex! The hit it perfectly as Michaels goes for another cover!
(Thadd pushes off Mark who looks confused at Thadd and then the referee.)
Talib Bari: If it was any other man that could have been it! But Thadd has been tested in matches way more dangerous then this and hit with moves and weapons that could end others career! But, every man can only take so much! He has to make a tag or else they are taking a fat L tonight!
Stew-O: Thadd looks confused as he sits up. Mark looks at Theron who looks displeased. Jamie continues to beg Thadd to tag him in and he reaches as far as he can hoping he can help. Theron yells at Mark to tag him back in as Michaels shakes his head. Michaels looks annoyed at Theron trying to boss him around but gives in and tags in the AWC champ. Theron slowly makes his way in the ring and points at Mark as if he is just a lackey now! Theron turns to Thadd who is now crawling towards Jamie and Theron cuts him off by grabbing his foot. Theron drags him back to the center of the ring!
Flannery McCoy: Thadd begins to hop while still hoping to reach his tag team partner but it looks doomed as Theron stands him up and clutches that left leg.
Talib Bari: Thadd is hopping and Theron shakes his head as he motions for his finisher!
Flannery McCoy: He swings Thadd’s leg around and grabs him as he turns! KING’S REQUIEM!!!
Stew-O:…NO! NO! Thadd reverses the move! THERON LANDS FLAT ON HIS BACK AS THADD BLOCKS THE STO! Theron rolls to his feet as Thadd uses his energy to charge and go bouncing off the ropes! SPEAR! THADD KNOCKS THERON BACK DOWN WITH A SPEAR!
Flannery McCoy: DUDE THATS A SPEAR TO BE EXACT! Theron is broken in half as Thadd rolls on the mat! Thadd begins to crawl towards Jamie as Mark demands Theron to get up!
Stew-O: The God Emperor is clutching at those ribs, I think Thadd might have hit a match altering spear right there!
Flannery McCoy: Thadd crawls, he reaches, YES! HE TAGS HIM IN! JAMIE HOPS OVER THE TOP ROPE AS THE FANS GO CRAZY!
Stew-O: Theron gets to his knees and BAM RUNNING BASEMENT DROPKICK FROM JAMIE AS THERON IS NOW FLAT ON HIS BACK! Mark Michaels climbs in the ring as the referee demands he leaves! Mark moves the ref out the way and charges Jamie…
Talib Bari: LEG LARIAT! Mark is now on the mat! Thadd is on the apron as Jamie is cleaning house now! Theron gets to his feet and Jamie aims for him again!
Flannery McCoy: SPINNING FISHERMAN’S Bust-NO!
Stew-O: Mark Michaels gets up and elbows the back of Jamie’s head as Jamie drops Theron mid move! The ref is screaming at Mark to leave the ring as Jamie turns to see Mark being escorted back on to the apron. O’Hara turns back around and THERON CATCHES HIM!
Flannery McCoy: BICYCLE KNEE! Jamie looks to be out on his feet! Theron goes for it again! KINGS REQU-NO!
Talib Bari: JAMIE REVERSES IT! SUPERKICK! THERON DROPS FLAT ON HIS BACK! Thadd slides in the ring and charges at Mark on the apron and CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER SPEAR THAT SENDS THADD AND MARK FLYING OUT OF THE RING AND ON TO THE FLOOR!
Flannery McCoy: Theron is down! Mark and Thadd are down ringside! Jamie is the only one standing!
Stew-O: O’Hara is going to seize this moment right now!
(Jamie begins climbing the top rope as Theron rolls over to his stomach and tries to catch his breath.)
Talib Bari: Jamie is perched high on the turnbuckle! Theron looks out of it!
Flannery McCoy: THERON IS ON HIS HANDS AND KNEES!
Stew-O: JAMIE LEAPS INTO THE AIR!
Flannery McCoy: GENKI CANNON!!! DOUBLE STOMP TO THE BACK OF THE GOD EMPEROR’S SKULL!
Stew-O: Jamie stands tall and rolls over Theron for the cover! THADD IS RINGSIDE AND HE WATCHES HIS PARTNER GO AS HE CHEERS!
Talib Bari: THADD JUST GOT THROWN INTO THE STEEL STAIRS AS MARK GETS UP!
Flannery McCoy: Mark realizes what’s happening and he slides in the ring!
Talib Bari: Mark doesn’t break up the cover as the ref makes the last count!
DING!! DING!!! DING!!
Stephie Love: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS! THADD BLAZEVICH AND JAMIE O’HARA!!!
(Jamie gets to his feet as Mark punches the mat at missing the chance to keep the match going. “Ultimate Battle” plays as Jamie gets his hand raised by the ref.)
Flannery McCoy: They survive as Theron clearly underestimated not only his partner but his opponents! Jamie wins as WAIT!
Stew-O: MARK MICHAELS JUST CLOBBERS JAMIE IN THE BACK OF THE NECK! THE MUSIC STOPS! FANS IMMEDIATELY BEGIN BOOING! MARK STOMPS AWAY AT O’HARA NIKOLAS ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! THE REF TRIES TO PRY MARK AWAY BUT HE SHOVES HIM THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING AS WELL!
Talib Bari: MARK IS PISSED OFF AND HE’S TAKING IT ALL OUT AT ARGUABLY THE FACE OF EAW!
Flannery McCoy: You can’t spell Face without ACE and Michaels is rabid as he drops down and over Jamie!
Mark Michaels: YOU RIDE WITH EAW AND YOU DIE WITH EAW!
Stew-O: MARK LOCKS IN HIS SUBMISSION HOLD! THE LIBERATION HAS BEGUN! LEBELL LOCK TO THE ACE! JAMIE SCREAMS IN PAIN AS MORE REFS RUSH THE RING!
Flannery McCoy: Mark is destroying Jamie as Theron grabs his title and watches from ringside. He’s holding the back of his head as he heads up the ramp! Mark just won’t let go no matter how many refs try to get him up!
Talib Bari: Can you blame him? He was doing fine until Jamie got his hands on Theron! Mark finally lets Jamie go as O’Hara is nearly out cold from the pain of that hold! Refs are checking on Jamie and trying to keep Michael’s away!
Mark Michaels: WHAT DO I GOT TO DO, STARR?! HUH? WANT ME TO KEEP HURTING PEOPLE?! YOU WANT YOUR ACE BACK OUT OF ACTION?!
(Michaels stands in the ring howling as fans boo him vehemently.)
Stew-O: Mark Michaels is a mad man and losing to Jamie O’Hara twice in a row despite not being pinned this go round may have sent him over the edge!
Talib Bari: Jamie might have picked the wrong fight and Michaels may have found someone that’s going to make Starr Stan give him what he wants!
Flannery McCoy: You hate to see the show end after a match that good with a vicious display like this but we are out of time! Thank you to everyone joining us and we will see you next friday night!
(The screen fades as we see Thadd and Jamie being helped up by referees as Mark Michaels stands on top of the turnbuckle talking his shit for everyone to see with his arms spread wide.)
