(The Territorial Invasion logo flashes before revealing some very telling moments from EAW’s annually televised, quad-branded, free per view event. We start with Eric Havoc and Team Dynasty successfully defeating both Voltage and Showdown’s teams in a 5 on 5 elimination tag match. Justin Windgate finished off Korey Gaines and brought the win home at the end with great performances from Eric Havoc and Provencal on the Dynasty side and Lance Blackfyre, Gaines, and the rest of their team. We are also shown clips from the incredible Divide & Conquer match that featured Dynasty’s Valkyrie, Jake Smith, and Osamu Arcichida in it. Those four plus ten other men and women faced off in the first battle of the sexes D&C match up. Remi Skyfire was the first eliminated after Jake Smith caught her drunk ass slipping and proceeded to eliminate her and IO Ishimori in quick fashion. Osamu, Jake, and Darcy May Morgan managed to show out for team dynasty and last until the final five of the entire match until it came down to Jake Smith and Jenny Cien. With the New Breed title on the line (more on that next), Jake failed to take out the wounded Jenny Cien despite having the most eliminations in the entire match.)
(Speaking of New Breed Championships, the title was vacated after Archimedes J. Manson took out Felix Hartley, Kai Zolomon, and himself as they all crashed in to electrical equipment earlier on in the night. That wasn’t the only title that Dynasty failed to bring home to the Friday Night brand. Heavenly Hell would manage to defend their tag titles against a hot Fatal Destiny group despite Miho-Ali’s carrying of the team. One title did manage to change hands on Dynasty, The National Elite Championship. Or, as the new champ has dubbed it; The National Extreme Championship. After years of fighting and coming up short, Lethal Consequences pulled a win out of nowhere after special guest referee Lindsey Kingsley screwed former champ Jack Ripley out of his belt and helped LC defeat him. Lindsey seemingly was at odds with LC for weeks but turns out she may have been helping him out this whole time.)
(Another huge match up with championship implications was a World Heavyweight Championship matchup between Drake King and The White Mamba Impact. A tightly contested back and forth was waged with a beautiful performance from first time challenger Drake King only to see him fall short like his Round Table brother did previously as Impact’s most dominant championship reign would continue. Another world champion carrying their title with no clear challenger in sight that may end it was The Mauler Kassidy Heart. Cameron Ella Ava challenged Kass for the Universal Women’s World Championship but she was rebuffed by The Mauler and her vicious and brutal methods just like Serena Bennett was at Operation: Doomsday.)
(Lastly, we see a recap of the epic War Games match up that featured three person teams from all three brands. Dynasty’s team featured La Panthers Sexual TLA, The Gravework Darkane, and the Captain in Serena Bennett do damage and work after weeks of desperately trying to build solidarity. Armed with a barbed wire chancala and Darkane’s signature shovel, Serena and those two gave War Games everything they could only to come up short at the very end as Andrea Valentine and Team Voltage managed to win this season.)
(The recap fades as we finally see the show beginning. The State Farm Arena sees pyro shoot out as the Friday Night Dynasty intro theme plays. We see a camera pan of the crowd before we get a close up shot of our Dynasty trio.)
Stew-O: Welcome to Friday Night Dynasty! This is the big show where we see the fall out of one of the greatest weekends in EAW history, a big night for Elitist all over the company as we move past Territorial Invasion and towards EAW’s Battle of Egypt show! I’m Stew-O here with Flannery McCoy and Jake Mercer! How are you two tonight?
Flannery McCoy: I’m fantastic and ecstatic about tonight’s festivities! Drake King vs LC, Darkane vs Jack Ripley, DMM and Eric Havoc…how could I relax with huge matches like this lined up?!
Stew-O: How about you Jake? What are they saying on Reddit?
Jake Mercer: …
Flannery McCoy: Everything alright, Jake?
Jake Mercer: …no. My name twin lost at Territorial Invasion. The former INTERWIRE KANG lost at Territorial Invasion. My fortune cookie Miho-Ali lost. How could I be in a good mood? This is depressing. Ima kms and live up to the name SK.
Stew-O: It will be ok, Jake! All those guys performed well and will continue to perform well! Those losses will not derail their careers but let’s hope we don’t get anymore Remi Skyfire/Vic Venom drunken mishaps!
Flannery McCoy: At Least Remi didn’t end up being a Nazi!
(“2nd Sucks” by A Day to Remember plays as everybody stands and watches as out walks the sharply dressed StarrStan with a huge smile on his face.)
Flannery McCoy: Starting off hot as the general manager of Dynasty makes his appearance right off the bat!
Jake Mercer: Why is he smiling so hard? Dynasty lost War Games and we didn’t add the tag team titles or the New Breed title! What’s their to smile about?!
(StarrStan walks out he steel steps and enters the ring. The Hall of Famer’s music fades out and he stands in the ring before being handed a microphone from Stephie Love.)
StarrStan: Whats going on A-T-L?!
(The crowd roars as Starr waves to a few of the kids near the front row of the arena.)
StarrStan: Now, I want to speak now and let you all know that tonight is going to be a special night of Dynasty! Though our team did not win this year’s War Games, I hope to see everyone with smiles on their faces and amazed looks in their eyes for tonight’s match ups! As General Manager of one of the three top wrestling brands in the biggest sports entertainment company in the world, I have a big duty when it comes to making decisions and creating match ups people want to see. I did not pick our team for War Games but I did pick our Captain. Our Captain, Serena Bennett, decided to…
Crowd: SE-RE-NA!! SE-RE-NA!!! SE-RE-NA!! SE-RE-NA!!!
StarrStan: I see we got some Serena fans in the building huh? Yes, I am a fan of her as well and like I was saying…I did not pick our team this year, I gave that power to her and she picked her two partners. Though they did not win, their journey to Territorial Invasion was one that nobody could forget. Two men who have become bitter rivals and enemies that seemingly couldn’t possibly come together and work as a team. To everyone’s surprise, including theirs I’d assume, they worked together and didn’t turn on each other despite there being ample time and opportunity for them to do so. Both men will be rewarded for their bravery and efforts here tonight! One being one of the greatest luchadores to ever live. One being the most hardcore wrestler in EAW history. First, allow me to bring out…LA PANTERA SEXUAL…TLA!
(“Ambitionz az a Ridah” by Tupac plays and the crowd goes nuts as our walks TLA alone.)
Stew-O: Former Interwire, Openweight, and New Breed champion…TLA is here! One of the most exciting and beloved veterans in EAW, TLA was seemingly on a forever lasting blood feud with Darkane for months until Serena Bennett managed to get them to work together in an effort to try and win War Games!
Jake Mercer: They came up short and now…TLA CAN FINALLY GET REVENGE!
Flannery McCoy: Or…maybe we can wait and see what this reward is for him?
(TLA rolls in to the ring and is handed a microphone. His music fades out as he gives the most awkward handshake with StarrStan before speaking.)
TLA: Aye, what’s going on StanStarr? You got something for me, homes? Is it some poon because I got plenty. How about that money you owe me from when I let you take Michelle McGillislutty to the Red Roof Inn in Montana and you have her anal bleeding and didn’t pay her back because your wife said you
(Starr slaps the microphone out of TLA hand and whispers something in his ear. TLA picks the mic up and gives a wink to him.)
TLA: My bad, we can settle your tab later…
StarrStan: Yea, aight. But, now! Let me bring out the second member of that team! A man that had not been pinned this entire season so far and sadly saw that achievement end as he was pinned at War Games! The man who himself was a former Hardcore champion and Answers World Champion. A man many feared from the opposing brands due to this march up being the most barbarically constructed match in EAW…please welcome, DARKANE!
(“Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus plays as out walks Darkane to a mixture of typical booing and some cheers for his effort at Territorial Invasion.)
Flannery McCoy: We day it all the time, hate him or love him…Darkane is one of the greatest elitist to ever step foot in EAW. He was in his element in War Games and had a fantastic showing, despite Team Dynasty losing.
(Darkane enters the ring and shoulder bumps TLA as he walks over to get a microphone. TLA points at Darkane and says something foul in Spanish as Darkane is handed a microphone by the ring announcer.)
TLA: Aye, watch where you going, man! You see me standing here, right?
TLA: Gato got your tongue, huh? You got some mud in your ears? Huh?
Darkane: …StarrStan, get on with this charade…I got a match to get ready for tonight.
StarrStan: Oh, well! Last but never least! Allow me to bring out our Team Dynasty Captain! A woman who’s performance set the tone and gave us all someone to support and believe in! The one person that brought these two men together for one night…SERENA BENNETT!!!
StarrStan: Um…come on down Serena!
(Nothing…no music, no entrance video, nothing. Awkward silence presents itself as Darkane rolls his eyes and TLA abruptly laughs before covering his mouth.)
StarrStan: Uh…Se-Serena? Anybody seen her? No?
(Darkane shakes his head as he displays a pissed off look on his face. TLA shrugs his shoulders as StarrStan takes a deep breath.)
StarrStan: I guess we will see her later on! Anyway, let’s get to you two incredible performers! I was so enchanted at how you two worked together! I was endnotes with the way you two and Serena held our own! It was amazing to see three of my own elitist in the main event of one of EAW’s biggest FPV events battling Voltage and Showdown for brand supremacy! I can’t help but admit how proud of you three I am and I am excited for the futures of all three of you here on Dynasty! As we move towards The Battle of Egypt show in a few weeks, I want to announce that
Darkane: Cut the bullshit, Starr.
(The crowd gets rowdy as Darkane walks towards StarrStan with his hand up.)
Darkane: Unless the next words out of your mouth are “I want to announce the firing of this lazy, good for nothing, bean eating, sombrero wearing, mariachi maricon, messican idiot”…then don’t say another god damn word. I don’t want to hear about any silver linings you have in that little general manager playbook. You aren’t going to be coming out here to convince me or anybody with working eyes that Territorial Invasion was anything short of a failure for not just me but the entire show. You know why it was a failure? Because Serena Bennett fucked up our team by adding…
(Darkane brushes past StarrStan and gets in TLA’s face.)
Darkane: This piece of shit on our team!
StarrStan: Woah now Darkane, take it easy!
Darkane: Taking it easy is why we lost! This idiot taking it easy and being the comedian goofball he always has been is why we didn’t get the job done and all of this team bonding, gift giving, gay ass fan service shit Serena had us doing ended up being for nothing!
TLA: Slow your roll, Chico! You got some huevos in those dingy bugle boy jeans if you wanna try and pin this loss on just me. Speaking of pins, who actually was the man that ate the pin to give us the loss for War Games? Pretty sure it was Serena or me with that blonde Voltage poon pinning either of us. Oh yeah! It was the wet dog smelling cac Darkunt!
Darkane: What did you just call me?
TLA: Darkunt. Like, because you dark and emotional but also a big, floppy, pussy! You come out here and act like you didn’t enjoy those fun times we had building memories and shit. You phony. You a pop tart, sweetheart. You soft in the middle. I’d let Steroid Dawg eat you for breakfast but you are the type of pop tart that flies out the toaster, lands on the floor, and end up covered in cat hair and ants due to negligence and poor housekeeping. You a dirty bitch, homes!
Darkane: Say it to my face, you fucker!
StarrStan: Hold on guys, let’s bring it back to a more cohesive state so I can announce that
(“Can I Live” by Jay-Z blasts as everyone’s attention quickly turns to the stage. Out steps Impact with his World Heavyweight Championship still around his waist.)
Impact: What you won’t do…do for love!
Darkane: Here goes this moron!
TLA: Aye carumba…
Impact: Oh! Don’t let me interrupt you two feeble minded midcarders from rambling on and on about who was the biggest piece of crap loser representing Dynasty at Territorial Invasion! Seeing as I actually did my job and won and represented this Friday night brand properly, unlike Darkane and TLA here did. Yea, I managed to defeat the hot and rising star that is Drake King and I can’t help but laugh at you two wannabe stars have a discussion on who sucked the most at this year’s War Games. News flash; you both did! Which is why when I overheard our bald general manager here say he was going to reward you two, I had to come out here and see what the hell he was getting at. Because to me…you two don’t need to be rewarded with shit other than maybe bag boy duty for The White Mamba for the Battle of Egypt show where I will likely run over whoever StarrStan puts in my way next!
Darkane: How about I run up that ramp and stomp your face into that stage for your disrespect, Imp?!
TLA: Not before me! I still want my damn revenge on Darkane but I can make one last detour and go get in my lowrider, hydraulic pump that bitch high in the air, and then drop it low right on top of you and your smug face!
Impact: Oh, another threat that won’t be realized?! How cute! I get those so often I have run out of space in my head to store them. Sounds similar to the shit LC and Drake said before I beat their ass and left them to go about their business empty handed. Par for the course I suppose.
StarrStan: Actually, I did have an idea. The reward actually involves you, Imp! You see, after watching these two performers not just st Territorial Invasion but this entire season so far, I can’t think of anybody else on Dynasty that could make a case for a shot at your belt now that you have defeated Drake King. So…next week, I was preparing to announce that Darkane and TLA would finally have their highly anticipated rematch from Operation: Doomsday with the winner being named number one contender for your World Heavyweight Championship!
Stew-O: What a blockbuster match up!
Impact: Hm…how about no?
Impact: Yeah, no!
StarrStan: But, I have this planned out and ready to book and we are getting ready to advertise it and
Impact: Yea, cancel that shit. GAWD contract, let me flex a bit, Starr.
Darkane: This coward doesn’t want to see me in that ring, that’s what’s going on.
TLA: Nah, he scared of La Pantera Sexual. Tupac better than Jay-Z and TLA will take that belt off that cabron if I get the title shot I deserve!
Impact: Why even have these two waste everybody’s time with a rematch nobody wants?
Jake Mercer: I and the discord chat dedicated to poon nude sharing I’m in would love this rematch!
Stew-O:…send me that link later :mjlol:
Flannery McCoy: :snoop: my god…
Impact: Why not just cut the middle man out and put them both in the ring with me at Battle of Egypt? Why delay the inevitable and allow me the chance to kill both these chicken head birds with one stone? You were going to just have TLA beat Darkane and then have me son him at Egypt, then give Darkane a shot and have me bury him right after…fuck the preamble, give them both to me so I can show everybody that this reign I’m on isn’t some fucking fluke shit. I’m the greatest to ever step foot here and I’ll gladly put my belt on the line against them both to let everyone know the fact.
StarrStan: But…wait. That’s actually not a bad idea. Pretty fair one, too. What do you two think?
Darkane: I get to rid myself of TLA and take that World Championship off that bitch tits having Impact? I’m fine with this decision.
TLA: Yea, I don’t normally agree with this piece of shit Darkane but if I can finally get my revenge and finally win the big one, I’ll take my chance as given. I will have the time of my life shoving that GAWD contract down his throat and make him regret giving TLA a chance at gold!
StarrStan: It has been decided! At Battle Of Egypt, the World Heavyweight Championship will be defended in a triple threat match between Impact, Darkane, and TLA!
Impact: Alright, now you two bitches can continue bickering like children while facetime my wife and blow a kiss to the greatest vagina known to man.
(“Can I Live?” By Jay-Z plays again as Impact turns about face and walks with swagger back through the curtain. We see TLA and Darkane staring each other down before StarrStan gets between them and separates the bitter rivals from coming to blows.)
Stew-O: Talk about GAWD flexibility! Impact has made his championship available to Darkane and TLA via a triple threat match!
Jake Mercer: I bet the dirt sheets didn’t see that coming!
Flannery McCoy: TLA and Darkane are two of the biggest named stars in EAW not currently holding gold. Two of the most successful men in wrestling finally get their first title shots this season at Battle of Egypt!
Stew-O: Both deserving but that confidence by Impact should make it clear that he isn’t going to be!
(The scene fades out as we see StarrStan completely desperate Darkane and TLA and we head to our first commercial break.)
(Commercial break airs advertising the return of the Dynasty exclusive marquee event House of Glass. Coming to you live from the Mexico City Arena in Mexico City, Mexico on November 2, 2019!)
(One Woman Army by Porcelain Black plays while the Crowd gives a mixed reaction of cheers and boos as Helena Merriman makes her way down to the ring)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentleman!! The following contest is scheduled for!!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
Stephie Love: Making her way to the ring, weighing in at 180lbs!!! From Venice Beach, California!!! She is the ONE WOMAN ARMY!!!!! HELENNAAAAA MERRRRRIMANNNN!!!!
Stew-O: And here comes the One Woman Army! She came up short last week against the EAW Specialist Champion, Andrea Valentine, with the title on the line, but was able to help her team of fellow Dynasty Elitist get the victory in the pre-show match at Territorial Invasion this past Sunday!
Jake Mercer: Definitely! Smashing Lance Blackfyre in the cajones with her forearm definitely helped wear down the Giant from ShowDown!
Flannery McCoy: Didn’t she get disqualified for that?
Jake Mercer: Yes Flannery, but trust me when I say this.. Lance Blackfyre was feeling those two blows to the family jewels for the rest of the match. Our team may have came up short if it weren’t for Helena’s nut shots.
Stew-O: Regardless how you view her performance from this past Sunday, she’s coming out here tonight with the intention of finishing this match with her hand raised and a win under her belt. She’s shown a lot of promise heading into Territorial Invasion, and I’m sure she wants to keep the ball rolling here tonight.
(The lights suddenly go out as Legendary by Skillet plays. Purple strobe lights begin to flash throughout the entire arena as we see Miho Li and Rick Vercetti appear at the top of the stage. They make their way down to the ring as the crowd boos)
Stephie Love: And her opponent!!! Being accompanied by Rick Vercetttiii!!!! From Riverside, California.. Weighing in at 120lbs!!! MIHOOOOO LIIIIIIII!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: Just like Helena, Miho Li has found herself competing against some tough opponents as well lately. Last week she took on the EAW Universal Women’s Champion, Kassidy Heart and put on an incredible match against her in a loss, then also had her Unified Tag Team Championship match against Heavenly Hell with her fellow Fatal Destiny partner, Karina-Ann.
Flannery McCoy: Yes, both were tough matches that ended in a loss, but you can’t deny the fact that Miho Li didn’t show any sign of backing down during either fight. It doesn’t matter who’s in her way or the stipulations that are set.. She’s giving it her all and bringing a fight no matter what!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: And here we go the match has just began! Both competitors stare each other down in the center of the ring. Miho Li makes the first move as she locks up with Helena Merriman. Helena quickly gets the upper hand as she forces Miho Li into a standing side headlock! Helena squeezes the head and neck of Miho Li tight as she drops down to one knee to increase the pressure of the hold! Miho Li now trying to break herself free as she gets Helena back up to her feet and pushes her off towards the ropes! Helena rebounds back off the ropes and connects with a hard clothesline onto Miho Li!
Jake Mercer: And Miho Li quickly gets up but is met by another hard clothesline that sends her back down to the mat! Helena grabs Miho Li by the hair and brings her up to her feet. She whips her towards the ropes! Miho rebounds and Helena goes for a third clothesline! No!! Miho Li ducks under it, but Helena turns around and quickly drives her knee right into Miho Li’s stomach! Helena now lifts Miho Li in the air and connects with a hard scoop slam!!
Flannery McCoy: Helena takes a few steps back then walks towards Miho Li’s head! LEG DROP!! No!!! Miho Li was able to roll out of the way as Helena lands flat on her butt in a seated position! The backs of her legs smack the ring hard! Miho Li quickly gets up.. DROPKICK!!! DROPKICK BY MIHO LI RIGHT INTO HELENA’S CHEST AS SHE FALLS STRAIGHT BACK INTO THE MAT! Miho Li covers!!!
Jake Mercer: And a kickout by Helena Merriman! Miho Li gets back up to her feet as Helena follows slowly after. Miho Li connects with a hard forearm to Helena’s face as Helena staggers back! Miho grabs Helena and whips her to the corner as Helena slams hard against the turnbuckle! Miho Li charges at Helena in the corner… BUT HELENA GETS HER BOOT UP AS SHE PLANTS THE BOTTOM OF HER BOOT INTO THE FACE OF MIHO LI!!! Miho Li is stunned as she takes a few steps back holding her chin after that boot from Helena! Helena walks over to Miho Li..
Stew-O: ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY MIHO LI!!!!! HELENA MERRIMAN IS STUNNED AS SHE STANDS GROGGY NEAR THE CORNER OF THE RING!! Miho Li quickly kicks Helena in the gut and connects with a DDT!!! Rick Vercetti is going crazy on the outside cheering for Miho Li after hitting such a strong move onto her opponent!
Jake Mercer: Miho Li now gets up as she stomps forcefully onto Helena’s stomach. She walks over to the side ropes, and goes for the MIHO-SAULT!!! LIONSAULT FROM THE MIDDLE ROPE ONTO HELENA!! No!!! Helena gets her knees up as Miho Li crashes down right into them! She falls off to the side of Helena! Helena gets up onto one knee as she kneels beside Miho Li’s head! Helena now connects with a hard right hand at Miho Li’s head, then brings her up to her feet. Helena drives a hard knee into Miho Li’s stomach and pulls her head in. Helena lifts her up and connects with a hard Vertical Suplex!! Helena quickly gets back up as Miho Li slowly follows after in pain.. Helena connects with a front kick to the chest as Miho Li falls back against the ring ropes! Miho Li holds onto the top rope so that she doesn’t bounce back into another move by Helena!
Flannery McCoy: And I think Helena sees this as she charges at Miho Li with a running clothesline!! No!! Miho Li dips her shoulder and tosses Helena Merriman over the top rope! Helena lands on the apron! And look! It’s Rick Vercetti! He’s walking towards Helena Merriman!
Helena: You’d stay out of this if you knew what’s best for you!!
Jake Mercer: And Rick Vercetti raises his hands up in the air signaling that he’s retreating and moving away from Helena Merriman.. BUT LOOK!!! SUPERKICK FROM MIHO LI ONTO HELENA MERRIMAN!!! HELENA FALLS HARD ONTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!! The distraction from Rick Vercetti definitely played a major role in that perfectly executed move by Miho Li!! Helena is slow to get up, but finally gets to one knee. She stands up on the outside of the ring.. SUICIDE DIVE!!! SUICIDE DIVE FROM MIHO LI ONTO HELENA ON THE OUTSIDE!!! Both competitors lay flat on the outside as the referee begins the count.
Flannery McCoy: And Miho Li is the first to get up to her feet. She grabs Helena by the hair and gets her up as well. Miho Li walks Helena over by the ring apron and slams her head hard against the edge of the ring!!! Miho Li now rolls Helena back in the ring as she follows right behind and goes for the pin!
Stew-O: And a kickout by Helena Merriman!!! Miho Li quickly gets up as she brings Helena up with her. She whips Helena to the ropes as Helena rebounds AND IS MET BY A HARD RUNNING BICYCLE KICK TO THE FACE BY MIHO LI!! The back of Helena’s head smacks the mat hard as the momentum from the impact on the ground snaps her up into a seated position. Helena clutches the back of her head as Miho Li runs towards the ropes behind Helena, rebounds, and connects with a running dropkick directly at the back of Helena Merriman’s neck!!!
Flannery McCoy: Helena clutches at the back of her neck as she lays flat on the mat. Miho Li gets up and walks over to the corner turnbuckles. She climbs up and goes for the Moonsault!! Miho Li connects with a picture perfect moonsault onto Helena Merriman!!! Miho Li covers!!
Jake Mercer: But Helena Merriman Kicks Out!!!! Miho Li gets up as she brings Helena up as well. She connects with a hard knife edge chop at Helena’s chest! And another!! And Another!! Miho Li now whips Helena over to the ropes as Helena rebounds and Miho Li punches Helena in the face on the return!!! No!!! Helena dodges it and connects with a hard forearm to Miho Li’s face!! Miho Li staggers back but quickly connects with another strong knife edge chop onto Helena!!! Helena responds with another hard forearm to the face of Miho Li!! Back and forth they go!!! Chop by Miho Li! Forearm by Helena!! Chop by Miho Li!! Forearm by Helena!! And Another forearm by Helena!! A third forearm to the face by Helena Merriman as she takes control over this back and forth brawl!!!
Stew-O: Wait a second Jake!! Miho Li connects with a hard knee to the gut of Helena Merriman!! Miho Li now grabs Helena’s arm and whips her to the ropes!! Helena rebounds.. AND HELENA CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING SPINNING WHEEL KICK ONTO MIHO LI!!! Helena quickly covers!!!
Flannery McCoy: And Miho Li kicks out at two and a half!!! Helena Merriman stands right up and quickly hits a leg drop as her leg crushes against Miho Li’s neck and chest. Merriman gets back up again and connects with another Leg Drop!! Helena stands up a third time and hits the leg drop once more as she continues to break down her opponent!!!
Jake Mercer: Helena gets back up to her feet as she grabs Miho Li by the hair and brings her up as well. Helena irish whips Miho Li to the corner as Miho Li crashes against the turnbuckle!!!! And look at this!! Helena Merriman charges at Miho Li in the corner and connects with a Corner Splash!!! Helena takes a step back from the corner as Miho Li walks out of the corner groggy… BUT HELENA CONNECTS WITH A QUICK DROPKICK TO MIHO LI’S CHEST THAT SENDS HER RIGHT BACK INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!!
Stew-O: Helena now walks over to the ring ropes and exits the ring as she stands on the ring apron. She climbs over to the same turnbuckle that Miho Li is leaning against. Helena now gets to the very top rope and hooks Miho Li’s head. Helena is all set up.. DIAMOND DUST!!!!! NO!!!! Miho Li was able to push Helena off as Helena crashes onto the mat hard!!! Helena slowly gets up, BUT MIHO LI CHARGES AT HER WITH A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE FROM THE CORNER!!!! NO!!! Helena Merriman ducks under it as Miho Li turns around.. Helena quickly grabs a hold of Miho Li and whips her back into the corner!!!!
Jake Mercer: WAIT!! MIHO LI USES THE RUNNING MOMENTUM AND RUNS UP THE TURNBUCKLE SPINS AROUND AND… MIHO LI CONNECTS WITH A STRONG KICK TO THE FACE OF HELENA MERRIMAN!!! MIHO LI HITS THE BULLET TIMER!!!!! GREAT REVERSAL BY MIHO LI!!! Helena stands groggy as Miho Li grabs Helena by the head and neck! She’s running back up the turnbuckle with Helena’s head in her arms.. THE DRAGON SNAP!!!! MIHO LI CONNECTS WITH THE SLICED BREAD #2 AND NOW HAS THE STANDING DRAGON SLEEPER HOLD LOCKED IN!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: And Miho Li is just wrenching back on that head and neck. Helena has nowhere to go!! Helena is trying to reach for the ropes, but they’re not close enough for her to break the hold with a rope break!! Rick Vercetti is jumping and screaming out at ringside as he’s yelling at the referee to call the match already!!!! Miho Li pulls back even harder and.. HELENA HAS NO CHOICE!!! SHE TAPS OUT!!!! HELENA TAPS OUT!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(Legendary by Skillet Plays as Rick Vercetti rolls into the ring and raises Miho Li’s arms with the help of the referee. The crowd boos loudly)
Stephie Love: Here is your winner….. MIHOOOOOOOO LIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Great match by these two young Dynasty Elitists! They definitely gave it their all, but tonight it was Miho Li who came out victorious!!
Jake Mercer: Huge win for Miho Li tonight as she looks to continue closing out matches like this one moving forward!! Being able to make someone as athletic and talented like Helena Merriman tap is not something that comes easily. Miho Li definitely making some noise tonight!!
(We open up backstage as we see Michael Belfort standing in front of a cement wall with a nice suit on as he begins to speak.)
Michael Belfort: Hello everyone, Michael Belfort here, live inside State Farm Arena here in Atlanta, Georgia and I’m here to present to you the new National Elite cha-
???: Nah, get it right!
Michael Belfort: Oh! My apologizes! The new NATIONAL EXTREME CHAMPION…LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!
(In steps LC with his incredibly incredulous facial expression as Michael steps aside and turns to him.)
Michael Belfort: First things first, congratulations LC! You did it! You defeated Jack Ripley and recaptured championship gold in EAW! How does it feel?
Lethal Consequences: :dave:
Michael Belfort: …Um, care to use words to describe the feeling?
Lethal Consequences: Fuck you want me to say? Fine. How does it feel? It feels better than before. Long overdue, but like Little Brother said, it’s right on time. A winning. experience. Something that I haven’t felt in a hell of a long time. Thanks for airing that out on commentary, but let’s say it for what it is now that we have tangible numbers. Eight years. I would say that they were long, but most of it wasn’t in EAW. Most of it was out. Those days were short. Now, every day I’m walking in arenas with EAW posters in the hallways, it’s a long, long stretch of reality. When I signed my contract with EAW last year it, of course, was only for Midsummer Massacre. That’s really the only reason I’m here, fun fact. But unlike the other times, EAW was different. I was able to breathe. While yes, every waking moment in here is constricted airflow that is bogged up by numskulls, I finally had a proverbial apparatus that let my lungs survive. My tolerance was higher. I can take the bullshit a lot more than I did before. And I took it. For a year.
Michael Belfort: It has been a long time since
Lethal Consequences: 8 years, Michael. 8 long, mind numbing and ego testing years for LC. People here today and gone forever have been figureheads in keeping me from my proper spot. From bum ass Dark Demon, cuckold DEDEDE, that Jackass Jacob Senn, Retarded Robbie V, Cholo Captain Charisma, Impotent Imp, and the most dastardly of them all… that hoe HRDO. :dave: All the higher ups conspired against me. All wanted to see me struggle and play gate keeper for their favorites or were intact the favorites that relished in favoritism and bias machinations. I preserved and I prospered when others would have popped 8 Tylenol’s and wished the pain away for good. Not me. I took em and now I’ve taken.
Michael Belfort: Wow, It has been a long time since…
Lethal Consequences: Stop interrupting me. Or else.
Michael Belfort: :wow: I’m sorry, LC.
Lethal Consequences: C’mere, bitch.
(LC snatches Belfort by the back of his neck and pulls him close. LC takes his National Extreme title and presses it against Belfort’s temple as Michael desperate to leave struggles to try and free himself.)
Lethal Consequences: Been a few years, shit…been a lot of them. But, when I said I was inevitable…I meant that shit. Wholeheartedly. No joking. I said I am inevitable and this belt…was inevitable! All those that fought tooth and nail to hold me back. Everybody that prayed on my downfall and downtrodden status can eat a bag of baby dicks and suck a tree trunk filled with overflowing ball skin. I am the National EXTREME champion. Fuck a Jack Ripley and fuck a National Elite Championship. I am the pillar that never broke that keeps the foundation of this company upright and finally I have the validation I am overdue and
???: Nice gold there, pal!
(LC is stopped mid sentence as over steps the one and only Justin Windgate. The crowd pops for him as Lethal shoves Michael Belfort away and brings his title back to his shoulders.)
Lethal Consequences: Fuck you want, slag.
Justin Windgate: Nothing, just overheard your manifesto rant from yonder. I was just rolling up some Khalifa Kush minding my own business when I started hearing a lot of names being yelled out from over here. Dark Demon, Captain Charisma, Robbie V…sounded like I was in a hot tub time machine with John Cusack and Craig Robinson because all those vintage Elitist names took me way back, man. I remember back then…8 years you said? Yeah. I haven’t been in EAW in 8 years myself. 2011 to be exact. It’s good to see things come back around for you and see that you finally got back to a good spot here. Just wanted to congratulate you for getting back to Championship form.
Lethal Consequences: Oh…well, thanks…
Justin Windgate: No problem, good to see the older guys still hold their own in this era of EA-
Lethal Consequences: Hol’ up, Jack Haze with no swagger. Who are you claiming wasn’t in Championship form?
Justin Windgate: I mean, it wasn’t meant to be a diss. But, you haven’t been a champion in almost 9 years and you finally got back to that level at Terr–
Lethal Consequences: Nah, that’s a diss. That’s a sought. You just spit on my name and rubbed your pothead Doc Martens all over LC, huh? You think I fell off?
Justin Windgate: Look, LC, I didn’t say that at all. Maybe calm down with the crying and pull the cobwebs out your ears and listen to what I’m saying. I’m saying you–
Lethal Consequences: Oh I heard you nice and…
(Lethal slaps the spit out of Justin’s mouth as Belfort backs all the way away. Justin’s head snaps as he looks at the direction LC slapped it towards.)
Justin Windgate: …Did you just fucking…slap me in my…
Lethal Consequences: Yea, yes I did. I slapped you, bitch. Since you wanna get out of line and talk to the National Extreme Champ all out of turn and what not. Now, apologize for the slight before I slap you again you Reggie weed smok-
(Justin retaliates with a brutal jab to the bridge of LC’s nose as Lethal’s eyes water. LC grabs his belt and swings it at Justin’s head but Windgate ducks.)
Lethal Consequences: C’mere you hoe! I got something for that ass! :dave:
(Lethal swings the belt again but Justin throws a solid hook to the body and forces LC to toss the belt to the ground further away from them. Justin grabs LC by the hair and whips him face first into the solid wall behind them. Justin proceeds to rain shot after shot all over Lethal as LC begins to desperately cover himself from the attack. Justin gets LC to the ground and starts to stomp away from him as we see the National Extreme title be dragged away from the scene. Justin puts his foot on LC’s neck and is choking the life out of him until…)
Justin Windgate: You…big…airhead! I didn’t come here to start shit but you just had to go ahead and slap me, huh? Are you out of your mind? Do you know what happens when you slap a man from Detroit?! We are liable to kill you where you stand and show up to the funeral and tell your mother to stop crying! You must think because I’m a stoner that I wouldn’t whoop your ass back here? Huh? Can’t breath? Answer me!
???: Hey big boy!
(Justin lifts his foot off LC’s neck and proceeds to turn around and…)
(Headshot with the championship belt bouncing off Justin Windgate’s skull. Justin is our cold on the hard floor as LC is shown slowly getting to his feet and gasping for air.)
Lethal Consequences: God damn…what good timing! Ah shit, you again?!
(We pan to see Lindsey Kingsley clutching the championship belt and now standing over Windgate. Kingsley reaches out and helps up Lehal to his feet before slowly handing him his title to him.)
Lindsey Kingsley: Would you look at that, this is the second time I’ve literally handed you Championship gold, huh?
Lethal Consequences: Bitch, that was a one time favor. I didn’t need you to get me my gold at Territorial Invasion or help me with this gnat, Windy. I am a lone wolf and I fly to the winds that are only meant for eagles like me. Fuck on.
Lindsey Kingsley: Listen, you hermit! You owe me a thank you for helping you right now and especially at Territorial Invasion! I am the reason why you finally have championship gold and if you play your cards right, I can be the reason why you keep Championship gold!
Lethal Consequences: Fuck. On. I said verbatim that I ain’t need ya ditzy, old ass at TI and I definitely don’t need you for little trash bag jabronis like this one…matter of fact…
(STOMP! LC gets in a cowardly kick to Windgate’s ribs as Windgate stays down.)
Lethal Consequences: He can’t hold a candle with me.
Lindsey Kingsley: Look, just listen to me. You see what happens when a powerful, smart, intelligent, and most importantly beautiful woman helps you out?
Lethal Consequences: Three of those things are debatable.
Lindsey Kingsley: You see the results, you got the answer on whether you should stop complaining and start embracing me on your shoulders right now. Look at what I did for you in one night, Lethal. You went from being the joke that couldn’t win gold for 8 years to the man that ended Jack Ripley’s historic run and all of it is thanks to me! Every time you have ever been successful in EAW, you have had someone by your side. Andy Dominguez to CM Ronn, you have had someone there to help you and finally, it isn’t a guy with the same anatomy as you that you will eventually have to sever ties with and be left floundering on your own. Finally…it’s the smartest woman in professional wrestling. It’s me, Lindsey Kingsley!
Lethal Consequences: …that’s debatable, too. I also don’t need-
Lindsey Kingsley: Stop lying to me and yourself. You know you need me and we both know that you want me…badly! I didn’t give you pussy in that hotel room but I did give you something almost as good as this pussy; the NATIONAL EXTREME CHAMPIONSHIP! You can keep thinking with your heart and we can see how long you keep that belt around your waist. Or, you can stop being a fool and accept my help and we can make this reign better than every title reign you ever had before it!
Lethal Consequences: …
Lindsey Kingsley: You don’t have to answer me right here, right now. But, you will have to defend that belt sooner than later and if you want me to be in your corner helping make sure you aren’t a fluke champ…you know where to find me!
(Lindsey Kingsley sashays out of the scene as LC stares down at Justin before giving him a head shake and walking away himself. The shot fades out on a close up of Windgate finally pulling himself up and sitting upright with his back against the wall as we cut back to the commentary team.)
Stew-O: What a heinous attack on Justin Windgate!
Flannery McCoy: The man that helped win the Team Dynasty vs The World match just got into a fist fight with the new National Extreme Champion after trying to congratulate and compliment him backstage.
Jake Mercer: To be fair, LC felt like the congratulations was a backhanded compliment and took offense to it.
Flannery McCoy: But did he need to slap Justin? Justin clearly wasn’t coming to start trouble.
Jake Mercer: The champ saw things differently. Maybe he felt threatened? Champion LC can come off paranoid and defensive, especially since it’s been 8 years since he last had gold around his waist.
Stew-O: With that said, Justin Windgate had he champ on the ground and was giving LC trouble until Lindsey Kingsley picked up that belt and saved him by attacking Windgate. LC must have assumed their partnership would be concluded at Territorial Invasion but it looks like Kingsley has some other ideas for champ.
(We leave the commentary desk and head back to the ring.)
(The camera cuts to Stephie Love in the ring.)
Stephie Love: Good evening. My name is Stephie Luvvvv…
Crowd: <3 <3 <3
Stephie Love: I love you all <3. Almost as much as I love the following contest which is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
(“Applause” by Lady Gaga hits to applause.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first from The Divided States of Hysteria weighing in at 205 pounds he is “The Animaniac” Archimedes J. Manson!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Archimedes J. Manson comes out to the ring looking directly ahead of him as he walks down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: Ahem… eyes up here.
Jake Mercer: Wow what a disgusting pervert! Fire this man immediately! #MeToo
Flannery McCoy: I only wish he would look at me like that…
(“Here We Go” by Sleeping With Sirens hits to boos from the crowd.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent from Atlantic City, New Jersey weighing in at 210 pounds he is “The Mightiest One” JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE SMITH!!!!
(Jake Smith comes out to the ring completely ignoring Stephie Love as he poses in the ring.)
Jake Mercer: This man is a true gentlemen. Treating women the way that they deserve to be. Seen and not heard!
Flannery McCoy: Wow you sexist pig. I’m filing a harassment complaint against you!
Stew-O: I’m sorry Flannery. Did you say something?
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jake Mercer: We are underway as I am excited to see how Jake Smith handles this match so soon after competing in the Martian Olympics. I heard he won several gold medals so this will certainly be an uphill battle for Archimedes. However, the presence of gravity on this planet may prove to be a hindrance to a true competitor of the interplanetary arts such as Jake.
Flannery McCoy: Wow you really on one tonight huh?
Stew-O: Some people just stay eating.
Jake Mercer: Speaking of eating. It looks like Jake is eating some hard rights from AJM!
Flannery McCoy: Wow AJM is sure a lot easier to say than that entire name. I think I will use it from now on.
Jake Mercer: Typical woman always stealing another man’s inventions!
Stew-O: I’m pretty sure we have been using this for months…
Jake Mercer: I am an innovator just like how AJM is using innovative offense! A leaping Hurricanrana sends Jake flying across the ring and landing on the middle ropes! And now AJM is standing atop the back of Jake Smith and he is marching in place! The referee is outraged!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI-
Flannery McCoy: AJM breaks the hold! But Jake Smith kicks him hard with a mule kick! AJM staggers back across the ring as he falls down into the corner. Jake continues going in with kick after kick! Stomping a mudhole in Archimedes’ ass! And now he climbs up onto the turnbuckle pinning AJM down… shots to the face! The referee has had enough! Jake falls down to the mat as he ignores the referee! He grabs AJM and whips him across the ring… but AJM off the middle rope… SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE! The tide has turned!
Stew-O: Now AJM the one pinning Jake Smith into the corner as he pummels that face in! Irish Whip! No! Kick to the head by Jake! Jake rolls out of the ring to take a quick breather. Jake now slowly climbing back into the ring as he watches his competition real closely. AJM allowing it as Jake laughs at him for not taking advantage of the situation! SUPERKICK!
Jake Mercer: NO! AJM catches the leg of Jake Smith! Jake about to lose his balance! AJM with the Corkscrew Takedown sending Jake whirling down to the mat! Jake continues rolling across the ring trying to escape but Archimedes grabs him by the hair! He yanks him back up and begins to punch his face! Hard shot with the knee to the gut of Jake! Jake pulls himself up in the corner but AJM charges in! Running Knee Strike to the gut in the corner! And he backs up again… This time a Running Clothesline! AJM falls down on the mat in the ring as Jake pulls himself up to the top rope!
Flannery McCoy: But AJM is back up and knocks Jake Smith down on the top rope! Holy shit what agility! AJM runs up the ropes… Hurricanrana off the top rope! AJM to the cover!!!
Stew-O: Kickout by Jake Smith! Jake immediately grabs the arm of AJM trying to pull him into some sort of submission but AJM grabs the ropes! Jake yanks him off but AJM catches his arm in midair! SMALL PACKAGE!!!
Jake Mercer: Kickout by Jake Smith! Archimedes almost stole one there! Jake pulls himself up in the corner again… RUNNING DROPKICK FROM AJM!!!! NO!!!! JAKE MOVES OUT THE WAY AND ARCHIMEDES CRASHES INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!! Jake immediately falls to the ground locking Archimedes into a Sleeper Hold. Archimedes has been keeping up a fast moving energy throughout this match it is probably a good idea for Jake Smith to slow it down a little!
Flannery McCoy: But wait! Archimedes is pulling himself back up! But Jake slams AJM down hard back first onto his knee! He releases the Sleeper Hold as he drives his knee right into the back of the neck of Archimedes to ground him once more. Sleeper Hold reapplied but AJM is still fighting back up and into the corner! He refuses to be held down! Repeated kicks in the corner now by Jake Smith! The crowd is not pleased! They want AJM to destroy this man!
Stew-O: Archimedes pulling himself over the top rope as he tries to escape but Jake catches him and hooks the arm… Suplex over the top rope into the ring! The cover! It’s gotta be over!!!
Jake Mercer: KICKOUTTTT!!!
Stew-O: Jake Smith thought he had the match won there as both men now tired out on the mat contemplate their next move. AJM looks like he is rolling towards the ropes but Jake Smith leaps onto his back to stop him! Jake keeps his opponent grounded as he goes for his arm and neck looking to lock in some hold. But AJM reaches the ropes! The referee forces Jake to break the hold! Both men back up as Jake charges in… but AJM tosses him up and over his head! Jake lands on the apron! AJM runs across the ring… RUNNING CLOTHESLINE! BOTH MEN TUMBLE OVER TO THE OUTSIDE!!!
Flannery McCoy: But Archimedes back up immediately as he leaps onto the apron! Jake back up… Leaping Knee Strike off the apron connects to the face of Jake! Archimedes tosses him back into the ring! Jake slowly back up to his feet… Springboard Thesz Press from the top rope! Archimedes is unloading on Jake as this crowd is wilding! Jake tosses his opponent off him but Archimedes grabs him by the hair and throws him back down. Now hard kicks connect to the gut and a Buzzsaw Kick to the head of Jake Smith! The cover!!!
Stew-O: Jake Smith just barely gets the shoulder up! Outrageous!
Jake Mercer: Truly. But wait! There’s more!
Flannery McCoy: Archimedes J Manson is stalking Jake Smith!!! Oh my! He’s going for it! About to end it all! THE PUNCHLINE!!! RUNNING THUNDER CLOTHESLINE!!!
Stew-O: IT CONNECTS!!!
Jake Mercer: IT DOESN’T CONNECT!
Flannery McCoy: BUT IT DOES!
Stew-O: ACTUALLY IT DOESN’T!
Jake Mercer: JAKE SMITH DODGES OUT THE WAY! BROKEN WINGS CONNECTS!!
Flannery McCoy: ARE YOU SURE?
Stew-O: NOT REALLY!
Jake Mercer: I’M SURE! THE COVER!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: Let Momma Stephie put some love on it. Here is your winner… JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE SMITH!!!
(“Here We Go” by Sleeping With Sirens hits to loud boos from the crowd. Eric Havoc fans are shown trying to break down the barricade in an attempt to storm the ring and murder Jake Smith.)
Jake Mercer: It is a good thing they haven’t realized that they can just hop the barrier.
Flannery McCoy: Indeed just like this victory is a good thing for Jake Smith! Congratulations to one half of The Round Table!
Stew-O: Indeed and good effort from Archimedes! He has been showing real improvement lately and it is only a matter of time until he has gold around his waist! Mark my words!
(The camera cuts to a commercial for the new EAW fan discord server. Exchange your dailies for a chance to meet your favorite EAW Elitist! Talk with them about their greatest matches! Learn more about the wrestling business! Slide in their DMs! And so much more!)
(Commercial for Couples Court with the Cutlers. Married judges, Dana and Keith Cutler, preside over couples who have issues with one another and are on the brink of splitting up. Today’s episode is ‘Newton v Newton.’ A husband triggers a woman’s intuition that he is back to his old ways. :wow:)
(Dynasty returns from break and fades into the backstage area. A victorious Jake Smith has made his way to the back. His good friend and confidant, Sierra Bradford, is there to greet him.)
Sierra Bradford: Nice win.
Jake Smith: And you were worried that I wasn’t taking that clown seriously.
Sierra Bradford: You know your ego gets the best of you sometimes, Jake, and I’m always going to look out for you. You’ve had a lot of setbacks here in EAW…
Jake Smith: :skip:
Sierra Bradford: No offense, but they’re all documented on the EAW Network. It’s not like we can really deny that they’ve happened, and you literally came within an eyelash of winning the New Breed Championship. I know how much winning that title would have meant to you. It was important for you to stay focused this week and look only at the challenge Archimedes was going to present to you, and not dwell on what happened at Territorial Invasion. You did that, and this is a great victory for you. I’m proud, bestie!
(Jake rolls his eyes as Drake King strolls into the picture. The ‘friendzone’ comment was done in good nature, but Jake can’t help what comes out of his mouth next.)
Jake Smith: At least I don’t have to travel with my sister for a companion.
Drake King: Ouch. You cut me real deep.
(Sierra flashes Drake a brilliant smile and Drake returns the smile with a wink.)
Jake Smith: :skip:
Sierra Bradford: So anyways, Drake are you ready for Lethal Consequences?
Drake King: Absolutely. Just like Jake needed to win, I need to win, and that’s what I’ll do. It’s important for The Roundtable to get back on track, and to not dwell on what happened to both of us at Territorial Invasion. Of course I wanted to win the World Heavyweight Championship, but that won’t be my last shot at the belt, and Jake is going to be a champion too. It’s only a matter of time before The Roundtable has gold and we stand tall at the top of Dynasty.
Jake Smith: My journey is far from over, and I’m not stopping until I get exactly what I want. It’s frustrating getting so close, but never really being able to grab what you want, but I refuse to be disappointed in my performances. I took Jack Ripley to his limit, and Jenny Cien barely squeaked by. I think I’ve proven to everyone that I’m able to do great things without deadweight attached to my neck, choking me like a noose and suffocating the life out of me.
Drake King: You’ve been listening to My Chemical Romance I see.
Sierra Bradford: He does have a signature called ‘So Long and Goodnight.’
(Drake and Sierra share a laugh, much to Jake’s annoyance.)
Jake Smith: I’m standing right here.
(The trio turns around and Drake’s sister, Jessica Miller, hurries into the picture. She has a worried look on her face which immediately sets the rest of the group on edge.)
Drake King: What’s wrong?
Jessica Miller: :lupe: I’m not sure. I was walking past catering and I overheard StarrStan talking on the phone to someone. He kept saying that the deal was finalized and that he would let Jake know soon.
Jake Smith: :skip: Let Jake know what??
Jessica Miller: I’m not sure. He got off the phone and stopped to talk to some referee, and I quickly came to find you guys. That could literally be anything!
Drake King: The deal has been finalized. That is very broad.
Sierra Bradford: I wonder what the hell that means??
(Drake glares at Sierra, and Jessica, and Jake shake their head at her. Sierra rolls her eyes.)
Sierra Bradford: Relax. I’ll say five ‘Hail Marys’ later and douse myself with holy water. It’ll be okay.
(Before anyone can reply or get onto Sierra for saying ‘okay’, Dynasty General Manager, StarrStan walks up. He flashes the group a big grin as he stops in front of them.
StarrStan: The gang’s all here! This is great. There’s something I want to talk to The Roundtable about.
(Drake and Jake exchange looks, but neither reply to StarrStan. An awkward silence hangs in the air for a few moments before StarrStan finally clears his throat.)
StarrStan: Right. So there’s a lot going on right now, but EAW is about to enter one of the most exciting periods of the season. Opportunity is everywhere. Battle of Egypt is coming up, and each brand has its own exclusive free-per-view in November, which will take us right into Road to Redemption. I don’t think I have to stress how important the end of the year push is. It basically marks the halfway point of the season and before you know it, King of Elite, Grand Rampage, and Pain for Pride will be here. The opportunities in this company to win championships and make an impact aren’t just limited to this brand either. Showdown and Voltage have their own incredible things going on right now, and to be a member of either of those rosters would be just as exciting as being on Dynasty.
Jake Smith: We don’t need the labor. Just give us the baby.
Drake King: O.
Jake Smith: I heard someone say that…
StarrStan: Right. Ight so boom. Jake, effectively immediately you are no longer a member of the Dynasty roster.
Jake, Drake, Sierra, and Jessica: WHAT?!
StarrStan: Jenny Punk and I worked out a trade and you’ll be heading to Showdown. I wish you nothing but the best over there.
Jake Smith: You can’t just trade me!
Drake King: We’re a tag team!
StarrStan: What each of you are is an amazing talent, and you both deserve an opportunity to shine on your own. Drake, you have stated time and time again that you want to prove to everyone that you’re not the man who needed his buddies to help him win and retain a championship. You’ve come a long way in a brief amount of time, and even though you came up short against Impact last weekend, I don’t think there’s any doubt about the fact you’re a future world champion. Jake, as far as you go, the entire EAW Universe watched you carry your partner for months on end, nearly win tag team championship gold. You gave some great teams a lot of headaches, and I’ll be honest with you. When Divide and Conquer got changed into a match for the vacated New Breed Championship, I was really pulling for you. It didn’t happen, but you were a star in that match. As great as the two of you are in a team, I think you’ll be even better when you don’t have each other to use as a crutch or a fall back plan. Drake, you are already there. Jake, it’s your time now. Take this move and see it as a positive. You have no one’s shadow to stand in, and no one’s weight to carry. It’s about Jake Smith now, and Showdown better be ready for that.
(StarrStan claps a stunned Drake and Jake on their shoulders and takes his leave. Jessica and Sierra share identical worried looks with one another. Drake and Jake truly seem speechless over the turn of events, and neither man has anything to say at the moment.)
(Dynasty fades to the ringside area, where Stephie is ready to announce the participants for the next match.)
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.. THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR..
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(Spotlight Saviour by Iggy Azalea plays as the crowd boos loudly. Darcy May Morgan makes her way to the ring)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, from London, England.. Weighing in at 130lbs!!! DARCYYYY MAYYY MORGANNNNN!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: After the poor showing for the Valkyrie by Remi Skyfire at Territorial Invasion, Darcy May Morgan was actually able to make up for it by finishing as one of the final three Elitists left in the Divide & Conquer Match this past Sunday.
Stew-O: That’s correct! Although Remi isn’t competing this week, you can guarantee that Darcy wants to use this opportunity to continue showing off her skills as a great singles competitor as well.
(Avalance by Bring Me the Horizon plays as the crowd boos. Out walks Eric Havoc as he heads to the ring)
Stephie Love: And her opponent.. From Jacksonville, Florida.. Weight in at 220lbs!! ERICCCC HAVOCCCC!!!!!
Jake Mercer: Did you guys hear that Eric is hoping to challenge the New Breed champion Jenny Cien?
Stew-O: Well he has been on a roll as of late. Especially after Team Dynasty won with him as the captain against Team Everybody, he is definitely making a case.. But I think a singles victory over the talented Darcy May Morgan would really help prove his point if he wishes to compete for such a prestigious belt.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Flannery McCoy: And here we go, as we get started off with this match between two Elitists that have a lot to prove! Eric and Darcy lock up in the center of the ring! Eric uses his strength to force Darcy up against the side ropes before grabbing her arm and irish whipping her to the other side of the ring. Darcy rebounds off of the ropes as Eric goes for a hard running clothesline!!! No!! Darcy is able to duck under it!!! Eric turns around… DARCY DOES A BACK FLIP AND CONNECTS WITH THE HEAD SCISSORS TAKEDOWN AS ERIC LANDS FLAT ON HIS BACK!
Stew-O: Darcy quickly gets up and runs over to the ropes! Eric gets up as well! Darcy rebounds off the ropes and connects with a hard forearm at the face of Eric Havoc! Eric is stunned for a second, But Darcy drives a hard knee into the gut of Eric! She pulls him in and goes for a Front Facebuster DDT!!! NO!!! Eric is able to push her off as she lands flat on her stomach! Eric grabs Darcy by her hair and gets her up to her feet! Darcy quick on the defense though, as she pushes Eric back! He falls back against the ropes, rebounds, AND HE GOES FOR A SPEAR ONTO DARCY MAY MORGAN!!!
Jake Mercer: NO!! DARCY LEAPS OVER ERIC AS SHE DODGES THE SPEAR ENTIRELY! She turns around.. BUT IS MET BY A HARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE HEAD BY ERIC HAVOC!! Darcy falls right down to the mat! Great 2nd effort move by Eric Havoc as he now is in control! Eric walks over to Darcy May Morgan and begins stomping down on her limbs!
Stew-O: Hard stomp to the right shoulder! Now the left! Darcy clutches at her shoulders after both of those hard stomps! Eric walks over to her bottom half and does the same onto both her right and left leg! Stomping hard on Darcy’s mid thighs!
Flannery McCoy: Great idea by Eric Havoc! Taking out the shoulders, but especially targeting Darcy’s legs as she loves to use moves that require a lot of leg strength to perform! Eric now grabs Darcy’s right leg and raises it in the air as she lays flat onto her back. He now jumps up and drops his knee right into her inner thigh!! Darcy screams in pain as she clutches at her upper right leg!
Jake Mercer: Eric gets back up, and quickly grabs the downed Darcy May Morgan by the hair. He gets her up onto her knees before driving his own knee right into the top of her skull! Darcy falls to one knee, but Eric quickly raises her up to her feet. He turns her around.. AND CONNECTS WITH A HARD BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX!!!
Stew-O: NO!!! DARCY BACKFLIPS IN MID AIR AND LANDS ON HER FEET! She quickly drops down onto her right knee due to the force of the landing. She stands back up, BUT ERIC HAVOC CONNECTS WITH A HARD SUPERKICK THAT STUNS DARCY MAY MORGAN!! Darcy is groggy and Eric sees that as he grabs her by the arm and whips her into the corner!!! Eric now standing at the opposite side of the ring. He sets himself up and charges at Darcy May Morgan! HE GOES FOR A SPEAR INTO DARCY MAY MORGAN IN THE CORNER!!!
Jake Mercer: NO!!! DARCY GETS OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND AS ERIC GOES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE!!! Darcy now leans against the ropes right beside Eric who is stuck in the corner from that missed spear. Eric slowly gets himself out of the corner as he turns around. AND DARCY FROM BEHIND CONNECTS WITH A BULLDOG as Eric’s face plants against the mat! Darcy goes for the pin!
Stew-O: And Eric kicks out!!! Darcy quickly gets back onto the attack as she grabs Eric by the head and slams it right back into the mat. She stands up and starts shaking out her right leg trying to get more blood to flow through her right quad. She then steps right beside Eric before driving her foot into his chest with a powerful stomp that takes the breath out of Eric Havoc!!! Eric turns over onto his forearms and knees before Darcy kicks him in the back of the head! Eric slowly gets up onto one knee, as Darcy runs the opposite direction towards the ropes. She rebounds, and CONNECTS WITH A QUICK RUNNING DROPKICK TO ERIC’S HEAD AS HE FALLS FLAT DOWN TO THE MAT!!!!
Jake Mercer: And that’s why she’s the Dropkick Darling! That move right there could have decapitated Eric Havoc!!! Darcy quickly turns Eric over and covers!
Stew-O: But Eric Havoc Kicks Out at Two!!!! Darcy now turns Eric back onto his stomach as she places her feet between the backs of Eric’s knees!! She pulls back onto his arms and hooks his head.. IT’S THE DRAGON SLEEPER HOLD!!! SHE HAS IT LOCKED IN TIGHT AS ERIC IS SCREAMING IN PAIN! HE HAS NO IDEA WHERE HE IS RIGHT NOW AS HIS ARMS ARE MOVING BACK AND FORTH!!! WILL HE TAP OUT!!!
Jake Mercer: I don’t know, but Darcy May Morgan is just wrenching on that neck while also putting a lot of pressure on Eric’s lower back and legs! And don’t forget the circulation of air that’s being cut off as well!!! This is not looking good for Eric at all!!!
Flannery McCoy: And Eric continues to toss his arms around, but it is no use as none of the shots he lands onto Darcy are enough for her to let go of this hold!
Darcy May Morgan: TAP ALREADY YOU SON OF A BITCH!!!!
Stew-O: Darcy wants to win this one right here and now as she just might!!! The movement in Eric’s arms is slowing down! HE MAY BE PASSING OUT!! THIS COULD BE IT!!! He continues to struggle in this hold as Darcy pulls back even harder!! She has damn near snapped man in half!!! ERIC HAVOC HAS TO TAP!!!!!
Jake Mercer: NO LOOK STEW!!! ERIC’S FINGER TOUCHES THE ROPES!!! HE REALIZES WHERE HE’S AT AND HE GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE!!! BUT DARCY CONTINUES TO WRENCH ONTO HIS NECK AS THE REFEREE BEGINS THE COUNT!!!
Flannery McCoy: And Darcy finally lets go of the hold before getting disqualified by the referee. Eric Havoc is still in this, but the damage may have already been done as Darcy pulls Eric away from the ropes and goes down for the pin!!
Jake Mercer: And Eric kicks out again!!! Darcy can’t believe it as she gets up furiously!! She grabs Eric and brings him up to his feet. She grabs his arm and whips him into the turnbuckle as he crashes hard against the corner! Darcy Charges at Eric!! HANDSPRING ELBOW!!! IT CONNECTS ONTO ERIC IN THE CORNER!!!! Darcy now grabs Eric’s head as she’s setting up.. RUNNING BULLDOG FROM THE CORNER ONTO THE MAT!!!!
Stew-O: No!! Not this time!! Eric was able to push Darcy May Morgan off as she lands right onto her tailbone. She quickly gets up and turns around.. SPEAR!!! SPEAR BY ERIC HAVOC!! BOTH COMPETITORS LAY FLAT ON THEIR BACKS!! WHAT A MOVE BY ERIC HAVOC!!!
Flannery McCoy: Both Elitists are down on the mat, but Eric shows the first form of life as he slowly turns over and gets up onto one knee. Darcy follows behind as he gets up to one knee as well! Both competitors stand back up.. AND ERIC GOES FOR A SUPERKICK!!! NO!!! DARCY MAY MORGAN CATCHES HIS FOOT!! SHE THROWS IT BACK DOWN TO THE MAT!! CLOTHESLINE BY DARCY MAY MORGAN!!!
Jake Mercer: NO!!!! ERIC DUCKS IT!!! Darcy May Morgan turns around.. AND IS HIT BY THE POISON TRIGGER!!! BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE BY ERIC CONNECTS!!! Eric quickly drops down for the pin!!
Stew-O: But Darcy May Morgan Kicks Out!!!! Eric gets back up to his feet as he brings a groggy Darcy May Morgan up to her feet as well. He lifts her up onto his shoulders!! GTS!!! GO!!! TO!!! SLEEP!!! NO!!!! DARCY WAS ABLE TO GET OUT JUST IN TIME AS SHE GETS BEHIND ERIC HAVOC! She grabs his arms from behind him!!! THE IMPRETTIER!!!!! THE UNPRETTIER FACEBUSTER CONNTECTS AS ERIC HAVOC’S FACE CRASHES DOWN ONTO THE MAT! Darcy gets up onto her feet as she now stalks her opponent!!
Jake Mercer: Look at the eyes of Darcy May Morgan! She is locked in on Eric Havoc right now! It’s as if she’s the predator stalking her prey!! Eric slowly gets up to his feet. He clutches at his forehead due to the impact he took from the ImPrettier moments ago… BUT DARCY MAY MORGAN CONNECTS WITH THE FACE ACHE!!! SUPERKICK ONTO ERIC HAVOC!!!! He falls back against the ring ropes, rebounds… AND HE WALKS RIGHT INTO A SITOUT SPINEBUSTER FROM DARCY MAY MORGAN!!! She Goes for the pin!!!
Stew-O: NO!!!! Eric gets his shoulder up!!! And Darcy begins yelling at the referee as she believes that she had the victory right there!! She gets up as she grabs Eric Havoc and brings him to his feet as well. She raises him up onto her shoulders!! It looks like she’s going for the Curtain Call GTS!!! But Eric realizes what she has planned as he elbows and knees her in the side of the head!! Darcy May Morgan has to let go of Eric as he lands on his feet off to the side of her! AND HE QUICKLY KICKS DARCY DIRECTLY AT THE BACK OF HER RIGHT LEG! THE SAME LEG HE TARGETTED EARLIER IN THE MATCH! Darcy Drops down to her right Knee!! And ERIC GRABS HER BY THE HAIR AND SLAMS HER HEAD FACE FIRST INTO THE MAT!!!!
Flannery McCoy: And whats this!?! Eric goes over to Darcy May Morgan’s legs!! He hooks them with his as he falls back and grabs at her head!!! CHAOS LOCK!!! ERIC HAS THE MUTA LOCK LOCKED IN ON DARCY MAY MORGAN IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!!!!
Jake Mercer: Just like Darcy had her signature locked in on Eric before, now it’s his time to deal the damage with his signature submission hold! He pulls back hard onto the chin and neck of Darcy as she is struggling to find a way out!! She sees the ropes in front of her as she tries to crawl her way over to the bottom ropes!! But she is barely covering any ground as it is too much for her to carry both her and Eric’s weight over to the ropes in the position that she’s in!! SHE MAY HAVE TO TAP!!
Stew-O: I don’t think so Jake! Look! Darcy begins peeling Eric’s hands apart as He releases the hold on her face!! Eric loses his balance on top of her as she strikes him with hard elbows to the back of his head and neck! She continues striking as Eric releases her legs and gets off of her!! Eric now turns Darcy’s body as she lays flat onto her back. He walks over to the corner as he climbs up to the top turnbuckle!! It looks like he may be going for his signature diving elbow drop, as he’s getting set up on to the rope!!
Flannery McCoy: BUT LOOK DARCY MAY MORGAN SEES THIS AND INSTANTLY GETS UP AND QUICKLY PULLS ON THE TOP ROPE AS ERIC’S FEET SLIDES OFF THE SIDE OF THE TOP ROPE AND HE LANDS GROIN FIRST ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!!! Such an uncomfortable position for Eric Havoc!!
Jake Mercer: And there’s Darcy May Morgan! She’s using the ropes to help keep herself on her feet. She walks over to Eric Havoc who is sitting on the top turnbuckle! AND SHE SLAPS HIM RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE!!! What’s This!?!?! Darcy climbs up onto the middle rope. She hooks Eric’s Head… CUTTER FROM THE TURNBUCKLE DOWN ONTO THE MAT!!! IT CONNECTS!!!! AND DARCY MANEUVERS HER BODY!!! DRAGON SLEEPER HOLD!!! SHE JUST CONNECTED WITH A TOP ROPE ENCORE!!!! SHE HAS THE SLEEPER HOLD LOCKED IN TIGHT!!!
Stew-O: Eric Havoc has nowhere to go! They are both in the center of the ring as Darcy May Morgan continues to wrench at Eric’s head and neck!! HE’S SCREAMING IN PAIN AND DARCY IS LOVING EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF IT!!!! ERIC TRIES REACHING FOR THE ROPES, BUT IT’S NO USE!!! HE’S FREAKING OUT NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO!! DARCY WRENCHES BACK EVEN FARTHER!!!!! AND ERIC HAVOC TAPS OUT!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(Spotlight Saviour by Iggy Azalea plays as the crowd boos. Darcy May Morgan stands up as the referee raises her hand)
Stephie Love: And Here is your winner.. By Submission… DARCY MAY MORRRRRGANNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!
Jake Mercer: And the Dropkick Queen continues to impress us here tonight with a win over the captain of Dynasty’s Opening Team from Territorial Invasion, Eric Havoc!
Stew-O: If this is what we should expect from Darcy May Morgan as a singles competitor, then the rest of the Dynasty locker room better take some notes because Darcy May Morgan isn’t playing around. Her partner, Remi Skyfire may have given the Valkyrie a poor showing, but that isn’t stopping Darcy from getting what needs to be done done..
Flannery McCoy: Well said Stew! Darcy has been great as a tag team competitor so far this season of Dynasty, but she definitely opened the eyes of many of the singles stars here in the Dynasty locker room after this win tonight!!
Stew-O: Switching gears for a bit let’s talk about what happened a bit earlier prior to the match! The Roundtable was shook to its core as StarrStan announced Jake Smith has been traded to Showdown and we have a bit more info regarding the trade. It turns out that in exchange for Jake Smith, Dynasty will be getting none other than The New Breed Champion, the Baddie with a bat… Jenny Cien!
Jake Mercer: Friday’s have gotten a bit spicier! Just when we thought there was only room for one MILF. Nonetheless it’s gonna be great to have another champ here on Dynasty, I feel for Drake though.
Flanner McCoy: Well the bad news continues to roll on for Drake King actually. Because we’ve just gotten word that there is another huge name making his way back for Battle of Egypt, that name is none other than the reigning Elitist of the Year… CAGE! Things are continuing to pick up and I can’t wait for the ball to get rolling for this show.
(An advertisement for Battle of Egypt airs hyping up the matchup of EAW legends and Hall of Famers Jamie O’Hara and Tyler Parker.)
(A video package begins to play and The Four Seasons, Concerto No. 2 by Vivaldi begins playing as videos begin to play on the large video monitor. A clip plays of Osamu Arcichida debuting on NEO as ‘Osaka’s Greatest.’ After the past clip plays, it transitions to video of present Osamu standing in a large empty music hall, wearing his patented conductors robe and carrying his baton. Osamu stares at the camera with a grin on his face.)
Osamu Arcichida: I’ve always been The Orchestrator. But I hid behind a persona of the hometown hero when I first debuted here in EAW. And you sycophants ate it up with pleasure, no questions asked. But then… I showed you The Orchestrator.
(The video glitches from Osamu’s debut on NEO to him playing the crowd like an orchestra with his baton, laughing as they boo him and throw trash at him.)
Osamu Arcichida: The man you’ve seen the past few months has had a lot of fun toying with you intolerable idolaters. But the time for games is over. The music has come to a halt and only screams of pain, agony, and regret are going to be in my symphony. Full-stop.
(Once again, in abrupt fashion, the video glitches and it shows Osamu winning the National Elite Championship.)
Osamu Arcichida: Osamu Arcichida is The Orchestrator. But not of music… not of beautiful strokes of the violin or beautiful pipes of the flute. And certainly not the shrill and smoke-addled voices of you lot. But of violence. Fear.
(The video glitches and the music volume lowers as video of Daryl Kinkade holding his leg after being injured by Osamu is shown. The video switches back to Osamu in the music hall. He holds up his baton and breaks it in half.)
Osamu Arcichida: The Orchestrator of Violence. The Conductor of Chaos. A man with no boundaries and no limits, bound by no masters or gimmicks.
(The video glitches several times this time, showing Osamu suffering defeats from Charlie Marr, TLA, and Jake Smith.)
Osamu Arcichida: Fall down seven times, stand up eight. There is never an end for the relentless. Relentlessly chaotic, relentlessly lethal…
(The video transitions into Osamu spitting his mist into the face of the likes of Miho Li and Celes Dumont.)
Osamu Arcichida: Screams. Agony. Pain. Suffering. The Orchestrator ensures it. Every.
(The video shows Osamu locking on the ‘Osamu Lock’ on various EAW competitors.)
Osamu Arcichida: Time.
(Osamu snaps and the music suddenly stops, the lights going out in the music hall he was standing in, and the video package ending. We are taken live backstage, where Osamu is vigorously writing notes down in a notepad marked ‘The Orchestration of XX’s Demise.’ Suddenly, Darcy May Morgan appears in the camera frame and shakes her head at Osamu, visibly irritated with him.)
Darcy May Morgan: Well, it looks like they’ll give any lazy piece of shit hype packages these days. Nice words, bud, but making excuses for your shitty performances isn’t going to impress anyone.
(Osamu puts down the notepad and looks around Darcy Morgan’s head, and then looks behind her.)
Osamu Arcichida: Oh, sorry about that. I was just looking for your partner, Remi. Speaking of… shouldn’t you be driving her and Vic Venom to their AA meeting right about now?
(Osamu looks at his wrist, with no watch on, as if he’s checking the time.)
Osamu Arcichida: You know, I don’t say this often, but I actually overestimated you and Remi. I thought you two would take the tag team division by force. THE VALKYRIE! Right?! But, instead, it looks like Remi will be taking rehab by force and you… are pushed to the bottom of the card. Too bad. Maybe you’ll find someone else to carry you on their back. But I’m not it, so go fly around someone else’s head.
Darcy Morgan: C-c-carry on what? You have room to talk, as Valkyrie carried you to victory against Fatal Destiny at Operation: Doomsday? Oh… right. How about how Ryan Wilson and Jake Smith carried you to, what- being eliminated fourth to last? Round of applause, let’s give this man some precious airtime. How about a cookie, too, princess? A participation trophy?
(Osamu folds his arms and glares at DMM.)
Osamu Arcichida: I can see why Remi was fucked up Territorial Invasion — dealing with your shit day after day would drive anyone to the bottle. You might be right, I didn’t get the win in Divide and Conquer. I slipped up, my ring awareness was off. But you? You just got beat. You were defeated, clean, even after all those sky high expectations. And to top it all off? Remi is gone and you’re dilapidating away with no future ahead of you. Face it, sweet heart, anything you call me? You can call yourself.
(Darcy steps to Osamu, getting in his face.)
Darcy Morgan: Don’t get it mistaken. If there’s one thing that can be said for your career, Osamu? It can be summed it simple in one word; dead. The Leading Lady doesn’t need any backup to kick ass and get shit done, and that goes for you too, Osamurella. So step back and stay in your lane before I have to check you once again and put you in your place.
(Osamu doesn’t back down and stares in DMM’s eyes.)
Osamu Arcichida: Watch your back, Morgan. Because no longer will you have anyone to watch it for you. As long as you remain a threat to me, you’re a target. And targets are always eliminated by The Orchestrator. You shouldn’t get it mistaken yourself — live a drunken life, die a dreamy death. Don’t get caught up in delusions of grandeur as you ride on your high horse of self confidence. Or fall off and suffer the consequences. By the way, your breath stinks, bitch.
(Osamu walks off and leaves DMM with an annoyed look on her face)
Stephie Love: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!
( “Born too late” by Saint Vitus starts up.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, from New Orleans, Louisiana, Weighing In at 240 pounds, THE GRAVE WORM… DDDDDAAAARRRRKKKKKKAAAAAANNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!!!
( Darkane emerges from the curtain with a scowl signifying his mood is far worse than usual.)
Stew-O: with less than a week removed from that brutal War Games match at Territorial Invasion you have to be wondering what condition Darkane is in because there is no way he is at 100 percent!
Jake Mercer: not just physically but you have to be wondering how being the one to take the pinfall is effecting the psyche of Darkane?! I mean you have to imagine he was expecting nothing less than to walk out of that match not just a survivor but as the victor, instead his shoulders were the ones pinned to the mat for the three count last Sunday!
Flannery McCoy: well you can tell by the look on his face that Whatever his is going on with his body or his head, Darkane will be looking to get back to what he does best and that’s laying a beat down on his opponent!
(Darkane rolls into the ring under the bottom rope. A few moments pass as his music slowly fades out and is replaced by “Stich” by wage war.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Las Vegas, Nevada, Weighing In at at 202 pounds, THE STRAIGHT SHOOTER… JJJJJAAAACCCCCKKKKKKK RRRRRIIIIPPPPPLLLLLLEEEEYYYYY!!!!
(Ripley steps through the curtain to the cheers of the audience.)
Stew-O: Darkane wasn’t the only one to take a hard loss at Territorial Invasion as Jack Ripley was unable to retain his National Elite Championship against Lethal Consequences in what was a barn burner of a match!
Jake Mercer: and with someone as eager to prove himself as Jack Ripley you can bet that he’ll do everything in his power to not just shake off that loss but out do his recent body of work to prove he is as good as advertised. The problem is he may be a bit too eager and that may lead to costly mistakes which Darkane will be more than happy to capitalize on!
Flannery McCoy: but this is also a great chance here for Jack to really step up and prove he’s ready to take that next step and enter the contender race to challenge Y2Impact! And a victory over a former world champion in Darkane would do a lot in earning him that opportunity!
( Jack Steps into the ring, the referee checks with each competitor to make sure they are both ready to begin before signaling for the bell.)
DING DING DING!
Stew-O: Here we go this match is officially underway! AND STARTS THINGS OFF DARKANE SHOOTS IN WITH A WICKED LARIAT! But Jack able to duck underneath, Darkane turns and is greeted with a flurry of knife edge chops that fire off at machine gun speed! Darkane swings with a wild right, Ripley swaying back and again Jack making him miss, Ripley changing strategy this time countering with outside leg kicks that keeps Darkane from setting his feet and launching a big strike! The kicks of Ripley forcing Darkane back against the ropes, Ripley lands a right to the jaw-OH AND DARKANE ANSWERS RIGHT BACK WITH A BIG HEADBUTT! Darkane staying on his prey now as digs his fingernails into the flesh of Jack Ripley and connects with a back rake! The referee Warning Darkane to keep it clean but I don’t really think Darkane gives a damn right now!
Jake Mercer: Jack getting back to his feet, Darkane greets him with a kick to the gut, Darkane hooking him by the head, LOOK OUT ENTER THE GRAVE INCOMING! Wait, Ripley fighting back with shoots to the ribs! Darkane still not letting go however, Ripley driving Darkane back first into the turnbuckles and that seems to loosen up the grip of Darkane! Ripley now with a shoulder thrust, and another! Darkane Answers back with an axe handle that lands to the kidney of Jack Ripley!
Flannery McCoy: and that one shook Jack up a bit, Darkane zeroing now on the back as he strikes with several stiff forearms! Those shoots force Ripley back up against the ropes, Darkane with an Irish whip, Ripley off the rebound, Darkane looking for a back body drop, BUT RIPLEY COUNTERS WITH A RUNNING BASEMENT DROPKICK THAT TAKES DARKANE OUT AT THE LEGS! Ripley Landing right to the knee on that one and Darkane landing flat on his face! Darkane favoring that knee as he uses the ropes to get back up, WHOA!! RIPLEY JUST GREETED HIM WITH DAYLIGHT SLAYINGS TIME!!! THE RUNNING KNEE STRIKE RIGHT TO THE FACE!! Ripley wanting to Darkane to stand back up, The grave worm up working his way to his feet surprising quick, that is the toughness We’ve seen from this man since he arrived here in EAW!
Stew-O: Darkane back up now, Jack Ripley crouching I’m wait, Darkane turns- YOU’LL FLOAT T- DARKANE SEES IT COMING AND BOLTS TO THE OUTSIDE THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE! I tell you guys these two quite familiar with each other, who could forget that battle they had for the Answers World Championship last year, Darkane knows He has to be on the lookout for the You’ll float too because Ripley can land it lighting quick from almost anywhere, and as soon as He saw Ripley setting up for that super kick he bailed out of the ring. And on the outside Darkane tries to shake off some of the cobwebs and figure out a new game plan.
Ref: 1! 2! 3! 4!
Jake Mercer: And you can see Jack Ripley daring Darkane to get back into the ring here! Darkane slowly making his way up the steps and onto the apron, And Darkane lingering there a bit, He’s maybe trying to psych Jack out or slow the pace of this match, we know what that Jack is gonna want to keep this match up tempo so Darkane wise in resetting things when Jack started gaining a bit of steam. Jack patient yet ready as Darkane steps through the ropes back into the ring.
Flannery McCoy: Darkane cautiously approaches with a hand outstretched, looks like he wants a test of strength, Ripley reaches out his han-OH MY! RIPLEY GOT NAILED WITH A KNEE TO THE GUT! Jack doubled over from that one, Darkane grabbing ahold of Ripley’s wrist, AND NEARLY TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH THE SHORT LINE LARIAT! Ripley quickly trying to get back to his feet but everytime he starts to get up Darkane keeps him grounded with kicks to the face! Ripley showing a lot of heart never the less and refuses to stay down as he is able to get on all fours, Darkane now sprinting off the ropes, Ripley back to his feet as Darkane charges at him with the running knee, and Jack able to catch him coming in with an arm drag! Darkane back to his feet, and Ripley catches him with another arm drag! Darkane back up again and Ripley catches him with a kick to the gut followed by a beautiful snap Suplex! Jack floats over into the cover!
Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE!!! TTTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!
Stew-O: Darkane kicking out at the count of two! Jack taking Darkane up by the head andwhips him off the ropes, Darkane back off the rebound, AND JACK RIPLEY SENDS HIM UP OVER THE TOP ROPE AND DOWN THE FLOOR WITH A BACK BODY DROP!!!
( a replay airs of the back body drop with this angle showing Darkane being sent over and landing flat on his back.)
Stew-O: That was a hard landing as you can see Darkane needing to use the guard railing to get up off the arena floor, But look out he doesn’t notice Jack Ripley inside the ring sprinting at the ropes… SUICIDE DIVE CONNECTS!!!
Jake Mercer: what an incredible move by Jack Ripley, he shot through the ropes like a Darkane seeking missile! Jack picking Darkane off the ringside floor, right now the only thing keeping Darkane on his feet is that Ripley has him propped up back first against the guard rail!
Jake Mercer: The Straight Shooter giving him no reprieve here as he lays in with several forearms to the jaw! And if I was in his shoes I’d be doing the same thing as you never want to give someone like Darkane a chance to get back into the match!
Flannery McCoy: Ripley taking Darkane by the head and looking to roll him back into the ring, Darkane fighting back with several right hooks that land to the ribs of Jack Ripley!
Flannery McCoy: Jack still trying to hang on, BUT DARKANE WITH A RAKE TO THE EYES! And like it or not that rake of the eyes was effective as Darkane buys himself some breathing room.
Flannery McCoy: Darkane now grabbing Jack by the wrist, AND IRISH WHIPS HIM INTO THE STEEL STEPS! WAIT JACK REVERSES AND ITS DARKANE WHO WHO COLLIDES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THOSE STEPS!
Stew-O: man the impact knocked that top step over! Darkane down as Jack rolls in and out of the ring to restart the count! Darkane starting to pull himself together and get back up, Ripley on the outside thinking his next move to wear down the grave worm!
Stew-O: Jack climbing up onto the apron, Darkane up on his feet, Jack sprints forward and leaps… DARKANE CATCHES HIM IN MIDAIR AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A DOUBLE A SPINEBUSTER ON THE STEEL STEPS!!!
Ref: 2… 3… 4!
Jake Mercer: Darkane the first man back to his feet, Jack Ripley still clutching his back as Darkane scoops him up! Darkane has Ripley up in his arms, what is going through the twisted mind of the grave worm?! Darkane aiming at the ring post, he charges, AND USES JACK RIPLEY BACK AS A BATTERING RAM AGAINST THE STEEL!!!
Flannery McCoy: This is Darkane in his element, with so many ways he can hurt you, punish you! And that looks to be exactly what he’s doing right now as he once again drives Ripley’s back into the post! The referee ordering Darkane to bring the match back inside the ring, and Darkane begrudgingly obliges by rolling Jack Ripley under the bottom rope!
Stew-O: Darkane sliding in as well, Ripley up to his knees, Darkane gets a hold of him from behind, and delivers a back Suplex! You can see Jack spasming from the pain! Jack Ripley trying to crawl over to the ropes to pull himself up, OH BUT DARKANE DROPS AN ELBOW TO THE SPINE! Darkane not letting up any as he lands with another elbow! Ripely in a world of hurt from that one!
Jake Mercer: Jack trying to roll away from Darkane, but the Grave Worm stalking him, Ripley trying to get back on his feet, Oh But Darkane drops a knee right to the lower back! Darkane not getting up immediately instead he’s got all of his weight on Ripley’s back! Darkane reaching out now and gets a modified camel clutch, that knee being drives into the lower lumbar region as Darkane wrenches back forcing Jacks neck and spine into that unnatural position! And Ripley in agony here as you can tell by the look on his face, but he still trying to fIght his way out of this submission!
Flannery McCoy: Ripley reaching out to try and grab the ropes, Darkane cranking back as far as he can! Jack hollering in agony as the bottom rope is just out of reach! Ripley has his hand held out, Will he finally tap?! Jack balling his hand into a fist as he inches his way towards the ropes, crawling across the canvas while having to carry all of Darkane’s weight on top of him! Jack moves an inch closer, now another inch, he tries for a third but Darkane dead weights him and Jack simply can’t carry him any further! Jack reaching out once more for the bottom rope… HE’S GOT IT!!
Jake Mercer: BUT DARKANE ISN’T LETTING GO!
Ref: 1! 2! 3! 4! LET HIM GO!
Stew-O: Darkane finally breaking the hold right as the ref was about to count to five and disqualify Darkane! Ripley up to his knees, Darkane dragging him to his feet with a handful of hair-WOW WHAT A RIGHT HAND THAT CAUGHT DARKANE SQAURE ON THE CHIN!

Darkane dragging Jack to his feet and sends him bouncing chest first off the ropes! Ripley stumbling back off the rebound, AND DARKANE LANDS THE RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE BACK!

Ref: OOOONNNNNEEEEE!!! TTTTTWWWWOOOOOO!!!! TTTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEE-
Stew-O: AGAIN JACK RIPLEY GETS THE SHOULDER UP!
Jake Mercer: Yeah but you can see how little he had left to put into that kickout, all the damage his back has taken is hindering everything from lifting to kicking out to even walking!
Stew-O: But still Ripley won’t quit! Darkane now standing over Ripley with a looknof disgust on his face as Jack meekly crawls towards the ropes! Darkane not allowing him to get there as he lands a stomp to the lower back that stops Jack in his tracks! Darkane now drags Ripley up off the mat, look out we’ve seen this before… CALLING IN THE CORONER!!! THE FORWARD RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP PLANTS JACK FACE FIRST INTO THE MAT!
Jake Mercer: Darkane not going for the cover here, he wants to make sure Jack stays down this time!

Both men back to their feet, Darkane swings with a wild right hand, Jack ducking under it and counters with the kneeling jaw breaker!! Darkane stumbling back off the ropes, Ripley catches him with a kick to the gut, DDT! DARKANE DRIVEN HEAD FIRST WITH THAT MOVE!
Stew-O: But Jack not able to follow up as he is still nursing his back! Darkane able to use this time to recover a bit and get back to his feet! Both men now trading blows toe to toe, Darkane getting an advantage here before he sets Jack up for a vertical Suplex, No wait, Darkane instead taking Ripley up and crotching him on the top turnbuckle!

Jack Ripley getting his legs under him, and somehow finding the strength to drag Darkane up by the head! Ripley h-Oh Darkane with a shot to the throat! Jack coughing violently as he desperately tries to suck in oxygen! Darkane grabbing jack by the head… And dumps him over the top rope!
Stew-O: Darkane raising his arms like he’s already won, a bit premature especially since Jack Ripley was able to hang on and land on the apron! Darkane sprinting off the far side ropes for a suicide dive, Ripley waiting for him and lands with a shoulder thrust through the ropes! Darkane doubled over, AND RIPLEY SLINGSHOTS OVER THE TOP AND RIGHT INTO THE SLINGSHOT DDT!!! WHAT A MOVE! JACK RIPLEY PUTTING ALL THE STRENGTH HE HAD LEFT IN HIS BACK TO SPRING UP AND OVER THE TOP ROPE!

( “Born too late” by Saint Vitus starts up over the arena speakers!)
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. DDDDDAAAARRRKKKKKAAAANNNNNEEEEE!!!!
Stew-O: What a great back and forth match here, for a second I really thought Jack Ripley was going to pull off this upset but ultimately his injured back was his undoing!
Jake Mercer: And Darkane snatching a great win here just when things looked like it was all over for him! The way he caught Ripley’s foot and the backbreaker to set up the Devil May Cry, what ring awareness by Darkane!
Flannery McCoy: And with this loss you have to wonder what’s next for Jack Ripley? I have no doubt he’ll bounce back but you have to be wondering how far he’ll slide before doing so?!
Stew-O: Well in any case Jack put in a phenomenal performance but it simply wasn’t his night. Stay tuned folks we have more action coming your way on Dynasty!

(Dynasty fades back in and “Put Em Up” by Lupe Fiasco begins blasting across the public address system.)
Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE WELCOME THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION… KASSIDY HEART!!!
(As Kassidy steps on stage, the crowd greets her with a huge reaction. As it has been for the past few months, the EAW Universe isn’t quite sure how to respond to the blood thirsty champion, who’s seemingly become an entirely new competitor since winning her first world championship.)
Flannery McCoy: Welcome back, and as you can see Kassidy Heart is making her way to the ring right now.
Stew-O: Last weekend at Territorial Invasion, Cameron Ella Ava and Kassidy Heart waged war on one another in one of the best women’s matches I have ever seen. Cameron pushed Kassidy as far as she could, and came so close to capturing the Universal Women’s Championship. The Hall of Famer unleashed a side of ‘The Goddess’ that we haven’t seen in awhile and even in defeat, she left her mark on Kassidy.
Jake Mercer: Both women walked away with injuries thanks to their hellacious match, but when all was said and done, it was Kassidy retaining her championship in grand fashion. I pose this question to both of you. Who is actually going to dethrone Kassidy?
Stew-O: That’s a great question and at this point, I don’t really have an answer. I thought for sure Cameron would be able to do what Serena couldn’t at Operation: Doomsday, but Kassidy has more than proven she is one of the best in the world, and depending on who you actually ask, she is the best in the world period.
Flannery McCoy: I think the person who says that is a little biased.
Jake Mercer: You gunna say that to Mr. DEDEDE’s face?
Flannery McCoy: :whoa: No.
(Kassidy gets into the ring and poses with her championship. She is dressed in a pair of high-waisted dark denim Fashion Nova jeans with rips in the knees, a cream colored off the shoulder sweater, and black studded combat boots. Her hair is pulled back into a sleek ponytail, and her makeup is done to reflect the Autumn tone of her outfit despite the fact it’s basically 90 degrees outside in Atlanta. After a few moments, her music fades out and Kassidy, who now has a microphone, takes a moment to soak in the reaction she’s getting. The Mauler closes her eyes, letting the cheers and the jeers rain down on her. After a moment, she opens her green eyes and lets an arrogant little smile cross her pretty face.)
Kassidy Heart: Well, it certainly feels great to be back in Atlanta. The last time I was here, I was destroying Ahren Fournier and leaving him in a pool of blood the night after cashing in my Iconic Cup and winning the Universal Women’s Championship. Things have definitely changed since then, but if you want my humble opinion, they’ve certainly changed for the better.
(The crowd isn’t so sure they agree with Kassidy on that. The blonde merely shrugs.)
Kassidy Heart: Last weekend, I did exactly what I said I was going to do and that was beat the living hell out of Cameron Ella Ava. She wanted to stick her nose in my business and make our championship match personal, when it never needed to come to that at all, and ultimately she ended up paying the price for that. I keep telling the EAW Universe that I’m not someone to fuck with, and when my back gets pushed against the wall, I’m going to snap. As ruthless as Cameron was last weekend, she clearly wasn’t able to dig deep enough to find what it truly takes to defeat someone like me; someone who is clearly on a different level than anyone else in this sport. I’m sure Cameron will refuse to give me credit. She will find an excuse as to why she wasn’t able to back up all the shit she talked and the stunts she pulled in the build up, and that’s honestly what I’m expecting. Cameron will say she never wanted the Universal Women’s Championship that bad, or maybe try the stupid ass excuse that management wanted her to lose to me and paid her to throw the match, just like the dumb cunt said last week in an attempt to threaten me and make me second guess myself.
(Kassidy rolls her eyes at the absurdity.)
Kassidy Heart: But I know better. Once that bell rang, something inside of Cameron changed. She was blinded by passion and ego, and I felt her desperation inside the ring. I felt how badly she wanted to win the match and take the championship. I know damn well that defeating me would be one of the biggest feathers in her EAW cap, if not the biggest since I am the best this company has ever seen. Cameron was forced to up her game against me, and find another gear, and at the end of the night, it wasn’t good enough. The Mauler TKOed The Goddess… which I guess makes me the new ‘Gawdess’ of Elite Answers Wrestling.
(The crowd does not like that at all.)
Kassidy Heart: ‘The Gawdess’ has risen, joining ‘The Mauler’, and I can’t be stopped. At this point, I don’t know who the fuck is next for me, because if the so-called ‘face’ of Dynasty couldn’t defeat me and the so-called ‘greatest female Elitist ever’ couldn’t defeat, then who can? What bitch is really gunna step up and take me down? The VoLtAgE qUeEnS? Give me a break. I’ve beaten all of them at some point in the past. Who the fuck does Showdown have? Harlow Reichert who couldn’t win a championship match if her life depended on it? At this point I’m just going to assume I’ll be holding onto this championship forever, because we all know Dynasty damn sure doesn’t have anyone who can step up to me that I haven’t ready beaten.
(“Fight Song” by Sister Sin begins to blast throughout the building.)
Jake Mercer: :damn: Someone must have a death wish!
Flannery McCoy: I… I’m not sure how wise this decision is.
(The crowd buzzes as the two members of Fatal Destiny, Karina-Ann and Miho Li, step onto the stage with their manager, Rick Vercetti.)
Stew-O: The crowd seems a little perplexed as well, especially when you factor in how Miho Li barely escaped Kassidy a couple of weeks ago. If not for Karina-Ann stepping in, who knows how badly Miho would have gotten mauled?!
Jake Mercer: :lupe: This isn’t going to end well, I’m sure.
(Inside the ring, Kassidy’s face is blank. Fatal Destiny get into the ring and stare down the champion, while Rick is handed a spare microphone from Stephie. Fatal Destiny step to either side of Kassidy, while Rick Vercetti lets out a little laugh.)
Rick Vercetti: Did you really beat Miho Li a few weeks ago, ‘champ’? Correct me if I’m wrong, but the match between Kassidy Heart and Miho Li was mostly a one-sided affair. ‘The Invincible One’ showed the world that ‘The Mauler’ is nothing more than a pretty little girl cosplaying as a monster, and she exposed you as someone who is not on her level. Too many people sleep on Miho Li, but they need to open their eyes and see just how deadly this one is, and how she is the future of this business.
Kassidy Heart: I’m sorry, I know I’ve had a lot of concussions in my day and I’m not all there upstairs, but are you talking about the same match I was in the ring for? The same match where I was in the process of knocking that little cunt out and ending her until Karyl Ann Kinkade got involved?? Like I told that delusional bitch on social media, I’ll tell you. Rewatch the fucking match. Miho Li looked fucking pathetic and got wrecked, and there is no other way for any of you to slice it. The fact the three of you are clinging on to a match that everyone has moved on from is mind-blowing to me. If the match against me and the match against Heavenly Hell wasn’t enough to prove to you guys that you belong in the ring against the Helena Merrimans of the world, and not against actual champions, then I don’t know what the fuck to say. You damn sure failed in your quest to win the Unified Tag Team Championships, and if you even try and step into the ring with me again, I will make sure it’s the last match either of you whores ever have.
(Both Miho and Karina start screaming at Kassidy, but Rick holds up his hand to quiet them. Kassidy has tossed the championship to the side and disposed of her microphone, and is pushing up the sleeves of her sweater.)
Rick Vercetti: All talk, all hot air, all silicone inside that pretty head. Kassidy, the sooner you accept that Fatal Destiny is the future of this business and that your days as champion are numbered, the easier it’s going to be for you going forward when you’re forced to watch the emergence of the greatest thing to ever ha-
Flannery McCoy: KASSIDY HEART HAS HEARD ENOUGH AND JUST SLAMMED HER FIST INTO RICK VERCETTI’S TEMPLE! MIHO LI AND KARINA-ANN JUMP THE CHAMP AND IT’S A TWO-ON-ONE BEATDOWN! THEY ARE HAMMERING AWAY ON KASSIDY AND HAVE TAKEN HER TO THE GROUND! RICK VERCETTI IS BACK UP AND HE IS SCREAMING AT MIHO AND KARINA TO LIFT UP KASSIDY!
Stew-O: FATAL DESTINY GRAB KASSIDY BY THE ARMS AND HAUL HER UP! THE MAULER IS STRUGGLING AGAINST THEM BUT MIHO AND KARINA-ANN ARE STANDING THEIR GROUND! RICK HAS GRABBED KASSIDY BY THE FACE AND IS SCREAMING AT HER!!!
Jake Mercer: VERCETTI JUST SLAPPED KASSIDY!
(Kassidy’s eyes widen and a glazed look comes over them. Vercetti was just about to strike the champion again, but he stops in his tracks.)
Flannery McCoy: :lupe:
Stew-O: KASSIDY JUST KICKED RICK BETWEEN THE LEGS AND HE IS DOWN! SHE RIPS HER ARM OUT OF KARINA’S GRASP AND PULLS AWAY FROM MIHO! FATAL DESTINY TRIES TO BRING KASSIDY TO THE MAT, BUT SHE GRABS THEM BOTH AND SLAMS THEIR HEADS TOGETHER! KASSIDY MOUNTS BOTH OF THEM AND IS BEATING THE HELL OUT OF BOTH KARINA AND MIHO! KASSIDY IS BACK UP AND SHE GRABS KARINA, TAKING KARINA AND RAMMING HER SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! RICK VERCETTI IS BACK UP BUT KASSIDY WITH A KNEE! SHE NAILS HIM WITH A HEART PUNCH AND SENDS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
Jake Mercer: THE MAULER IS LICKING HER LIPS AS IT’S JUST HER AND MIHO IN THE RING! MIHO IS LUNGES FOR KASSIDY FOR KASSIDY, BUT KASSIDY GRABS HER IN A HEADLOCK! SHE SPIKES MIHO INTO THE MAT WITH A DDT AND IS ON TOP OF HER! KASSIDY WITH A SERIES OF RIGHTS AND LEFTS TO THE FACE OF MIHO LI! MIHO TRIES TO FEND HER OFF BUT KASSIDY JUST SANK HER TEETH INTO MIHO’S FOREHEAD AND RIPPED IT OPEN! THE MAULER HAS DRAWN BLOOD! KASSIDY CONTINUES TO BITE THE FOREHEAD OF MIHO LI AND SEEMS TO BE ENJOYING IT! KASSIBAL LECTER!!!!
Flannery McCoy: …
Stew-O: KARINA-ANN IS BACK UP AND SHE JUST STOMPED ON THE BACK OF KASSIDY’S HEAD! KARINA GOES TO GRAB THE CHAMPION, BUT THAT STOMP DIDN’T EVEN EFFECT KASSIDY! KASSIDY IS BACK UP AND LOOK AT THE BLOOD THAT IS DRIPPING FROM KASSIDY’S MOUTH! LOOK AT HER FACE!!!!
(Karina-Ann turns as white as a ghost and immediately makes a beeline for the ropes.)
Jake Mercer: KASSIDY JUMPS KARINA! KASSIDYJUMPS KARINA! KASSIDY WRAPS HER ARMS AROUND THE NECK OF KARINA-ANN AND WRESTLES HER DOWN TO THE MAT! KASSIDY WITH STIFF RIGHT HANDS TO KARINA’S TEMPLE, TRANSITIONING INTO ‘THANK U NEXT’!!! KASSIDY LOCKS KARINA IN ‘THANK U NEXT’ AND SHE IS STOMPING AWAY AT THE SKULL OF KARINA!!!! KASSIDY GRABS KARINA’S FINGERS AND SINKS HER TEETH INTO THEM… GOOD GOD. SHE SPIT OUT OF ONE KARINA’S FINGERNAILS! KASSIDY HAS KARINA-ANN BEATEN TO A PULP AND THE SIREN ASSASSIN IS OUT LIKE A LIGHT!
(Rick Vercetti has wisely pulled a bleeding Miho Li out of the ring and the two are retreating up the ramp, watching in horror as Kassidy methodically breaks every single one Karina-Ann’s fingers with her teeth, leaving them bent and twisted at various angles.)
(The Mauler finally grows bored of stomping on Karina’s skull, her boot covered with Karina-
Ann’s blood, and she rises to her feet. Kassidy places her foot right across Karina’s mouth, forcing the unconscious and likely dead Karina-Ann to kiss the bottom of her bloody shoe. The audience is shook, and unable to really react to what they just witnessed, because no one really knows what to say.)
Stew-O: Ladies and gentlemen, in all my years of calling this sport, I have never seen anyone quite like Kassidy Heart…
Flannery McCoy: She’s a fucking animal. Mr. DEDEDE has turned her into a rabid animal who needs to be locked up or restrained. This is sick.
(A sick smile has spread across Kassidy’s face as blood drips from her chin and onto the mat. Miho and Rick disappear behind the curtains, clearly shaken over what they just saw happen to their partner.)
Jake Mercer: We’ll be right ba-
(The audience erupts.)
Flannery McCoy: THERE’S A MASKED FIGURE IN THE RING AND THEY JUST BLASTED KASSIDY IN THE BACK OF THE SKULL!!!
Stew-O: KASSIDY HAS CRUMBLED TO THE MAT AND THIS PERSON IS RELENTLESSLY BEATING THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A PAIR OF BRASS KNUCKLES! THE BACK OF KASSIDY’S HEAD IS BUSTED OPEN AND I THINK THE CHAMP IS OUT!
Jake Mercer: WHO THE FUCK IS THIS?!
(The masked figure continues to beat Kassidy Heart senseless until they’re sure the Universal Women’s Champion isn’t going to get up. Kassidy’s blonde hair has turned red and that’s when the figure rises to their feet and looks at the bloody brass knux. The audience is losing their minds because the figure is reaching for the mask.)
Stew-O, Flannery McCoy, and Jake Mercer: :damn:!!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: NO FUCKING WAY!
Jake Mercer: THAT’S KENDRA SHAMEZ!!!!
(The audience is besides themselves as the OG Vixen shakes out her brilliant blonde hair and looks down at Kassidy’s busted skull with a smirk on her face. She kicks Kassidy over on her back and bends down. Kendra grabs Kassidy’s hair and pulls her up so their faces are next to one another. Kassidy eyes flutter open, and that causes Kendra to smile even brighter.)
Kendra Shamez (Off Mic): What’s next for Kassidy Heart? I’m next.
(Kendra slams Kassidy’s head into the mat.)
Kendra Shamez (Off Mic): Bitch.
(“Needles and Pins” by the Deftones begins to play as Kendra rises to her feet. She looks around and spies the Universal Women’s Champion, and goes to retrieve it. Kendra smirks and raises the championship in the air, and Dynasty fades to a commercial break as the crowd chants the name of the EAW Hall of Famer.)

(Dynasty comes back on air as multiple backstage staff members and paramedics are scrambling and rushing to an area that shows an unconscious Serena Bennett laid out, beaten and bloody. StarrStan is also shown arriving to the scene confused on who is behind this attack. The paramedics lift her up onto a stretcher as the camera fades away)
(Camera pans back to the State Farm Arena, as the fans are awaiting the main event match as the camera shows Stephie Love standing dead center in the ring as she prepares to make her announcement)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie: The FOLLOWING contest, is your MAIN EVENT of DYNASTY!!! And it is set, FOR ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
(“Ready For War” By Adelitas Way begins to blast through the arena speakers as Drake King makes his entrance to a unpleasant reaction from the faithful in Atlanta but completely ignores it as he continues to strut down to the ring)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, From Charlotte, North Carolina, weighing in at 220 pounds… THE KING, DRAAAAAKKKEEEEEEEE KINNNNNNGGGGGGG…!!!
Stew-O: This man, unfortunately coming up short in his Heavyweight Championship match against Impact, after a match but Impact was able to retain and you have to wonder if that affected the mentality of Drake King who believed he was walking out of Territorial Invasion with the World Heavyweight Championship.
Jake Mercer: You have to wonder exactly what is running through his mind, he finds himself in the Main Event against a man who managed to secure the National Elite Championship.
Flannery McCoy: Big losses can change guys, but this crowd is excited to see what is about to happen.
(“Friend Vs Friend” By Company Flow hits to a big Mixed Reaction as Lethal Consequences makes his way through the curtain and down the ramp with the National Elite Championship strapped around his waist)
Stephie: Introducing his opponent, From Oakland, California! Weighing in at 230 Pounds!! THE CURRENT NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION..!! LEEEETHAAAAAALLLLLLL CONSEEEQUENCESSSS….!!!

(“Ready For War” Blast through the speakers as Drake King rises up to his feet and begins to celebrate his victory as the referee raises his hand)
Stephie Love: HEREEEE..IS YOUR WINNNERRRRR…..!!! DRAAAAKKKEEEEEEEEE KINNNGGGGGGGGGGG….!!!
Stew-O: BIG comeback victory for Drake King in a back and forth Dynasty main event that delivered! He just defeated the National Elite Champion and Drake King, despite how people feel about him personally really continues to grow as a performer every time he steps inside an EAW ring!
Jake: I agree, Drake King is quickly becoming a top five favorite to watch. That loss he took to Impact was nothing more than a lesson, he’ll learn and he’ll be holding World Heavyweight Championship gold for many years.
Flannery: And look!
(Jake Smith is shown coming through the curtain as Drake King was walking up the ramp as the two men share words and Jake has a smile on his face which is met with one by Drake King and the two men share a moment of a hug and raise each others hands in the air)
Stew-O: These two tag team partners, going separate ways! Jake Smith being sent to Showdown earlier sent shockwaves throughout the EAW Universe but this is a great display of solidarity between the two men as they look to conquer EAW on their own separate paths.
Jake Mercer: This is how we are ending Dynasty, I should of brought tissues, Stew can I cry on your shoulder?
Flannery: Thank you for tuning into Dynasty, we’ll see you next week right here, same program, same time, same hard hitting action that you can only find from the best brand despite what happened at War Games! THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT!!
(One last shot of Drake and Jake, before camera fades to black)
