(EAW Intro Plays…)
(A video recapping everything involving Dynasty at Territorial Invasion begins to play. It begins with Andy Lush falling short in winning the New Breed Championship, the match between Ventura and Ryan Wilson with Jack Ripley successfully cashing in his 24/7 contract to win the Hardcore Championship, Darkane successfully retaining the Answers World Championship against Impact and Cameron Ella Ava before Theron Nikolas signalled in intentions of cashing in his King of Elite crown as Darkane’s next challenger before cutting to shots of War Games ending with a shot of DDD spearing DC to win the match for Dynasty. One last shot shows the One Percent standing on the stage looking back down as the carnage in the ring before the video fades to black.)
(Dynasty Intro Plays; featuring “Revolution” by The Score.)
(The camera cuts to the arena as red pyro blasts from the stage and titantron before the camera pans across the thousands in attendance before stopping at Stew and Talib at the announcers table.)
Stew: WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN TO THE BRAND THAT PROVED TO BE THE ABSOLUTE BEST THING THAT THIS COMPANY HAS TO OFFER! THE BRAND THAT CONQUERED SHOWDOWN, VOLTAGE AND EMPIRE INSIDE WAR GAMES AT TERRITORIAL INVASION! I’VE BEEN WAVING THE DYNASTY FLAG ALL WEEK, TALIB!
Talib: It’s an exciting time on Dynasty, but it also means that this brand is in prime position to push itself forward into a position that it hasn’t seen in a long time – if not ever. There are a whole lot of talking points coming off last weeks incredible show, and I’m positive that we’re going to receive at least some answers tonight!
“ILLEST MOTHERFUCKERS ALIVE!!!!!”
(“Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Kanye West and Jay-Z hits as Theron Nikolas makes his way out through the curtain. He’s still showing the scars of war from Territorial Invasion as he stands on the stage soaking in every piece of the THUNDEROUS mixed reaction he’s receiving.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome at this time… THE 2018 KING OF ELITE!!! THERON NIIIIIKKKKOOOOOLAAAAASSS!!!!
Stew: Oh boy, I’m not a fan of what this man alongside Ripley and DDD did to Ronn Banks at PFP a few months ago, but Territorial Invasion was awesome. I had my doubts; I didn’t think that those three had any intention of representing Dynasty – but they did so and walked out victorious.
Talib: You sounds like yourself surprised at these three walking out after conquering those in front of them. They are three of the best that this company has to offer; certainly better than what any of the other brands can offer up. Don’t try to jump on their bandwagon now after spending months slandering them every moment that you have.
Stew: I’m just happy Dynasty won…
(The three enter the ring and Theron is handed the microphone as “Illest Motherfucker Alive” fades out. Theron stands in the middle of the ring as the hint of a smile crosses his face.)
Theron: I was going to come out here and brag about our success at Territorial Invasion. I was going to talk about how the One Percent asserted our dominance against Showdown, Empire and Voltage – but, I can’t take my mind off what’s to come. It feels like I have absolutely no pressure on my shoulders. I’ve been fighting for months to destroy everything in my way to ensure that when the time comes that I cash this crown in that there was nothing that was going to interfere with the opportunity to take the championship I’ve felt I deserve more than any other name in this business. There were reasons for the One Percent accepting the position to represent Dynasty; we didn’t care about brand supremacy. We cared about our supremacy. We cared about our dominance, But, I cared about what Starr Stan promised. At War Games – I finally beat this company. War Games was proof that everything that I went through; turning this company, every single one of you against me was worth it. Going against my morals was worth it; forcing myself to go against everything that I believed was my morals was absolutely worth it. War Games gave me the opportunity to officially announce that at Operation: Doomsday – I am officially cashing in my King of Elite crown against Darkane for an opportunity at the Answers World Championship.
(The thousands in attendance explode as Theron looks down at the crown in his hand. “Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus hits as Darkane makes his way through the curtain to an ERUPTION of cheers with the AWC around his waist. He stands on the stage with a microphone in hand looking down at Theron who stands in the ring.)
Darkane: I’m glad. You have no idea how long; how badly I wanted this to happen. Jack Ripley was never worthy of the challenge, nor was Kevin Hunter. Both Cameron Ella Ava’s and Impact’s days of glory have come and gone, but you – you were the name that I was waiting to step up to the challenge.
Theron: I didn’t know that you were so intent on losing the championship that you hold so dearly.
Darkane: I’m not worried about losing this championship, Theron.
Theron: Let me guess – this is finally going to be the time that you manage to not fall at my feet. The world like to believe in this idea that you’re great – and yet, you’ve never been able to beat me. I don’t believe that there could be a better champion for me to challenge. You’re more than welcome to hand it over.
Darkane: I know that you’ve got your jokes, but they all mean nothing when I look at this Answers World Championship. Every single word you throw my way means absolutely nothing while I stand here as a man that has captured the dream – while you’re still one chasing it.
(Theron laughs as he shakes his head.)
Theron: Didn’t you win championship from Scott Diamond? Wait, wait, wait! Didn’t you win the Hardcore Championship from Scott Diamond too? Congratulations, Darkane. My apologies – I should show some respect towards the fact that you managed to defeat one of the bigger disappointments of the last four years for your success.
Theron: I know, I know. But, everything you’re able to say falls on deaf ears when history tells us how this match is going to go. The world is going to chant your name at the top of their lungs. You can hear them now! Darkane! Darkane! Darkane – and you’re going to let them down. You’re going to let them down like you did at Pain for Pride X. You’re going to let them down like you did at King of Elite when I crushed your head between my boots and steel to capture the very crown that caused your downfall. The truth of the matter is that what anyone thinks is going to happen means fuck all. I’m going to do what I always do when it comes down to the two of us. I’m going to take away something that you want, or in this case actually have. I’m going to prove that I always have, do, and always will stand above you. I’m going to put the final blade through the heart of “Darkane Times”. At Operation: Doomsday – I’m taking my spot at the top of this company, “champ”.
(Theron drops his microphone as “Illest Motherfucker Alive” picks back up. The two stare down from the stage and ring as the camera cuts to commercial.)
Erebus Jennings def. Ryan Wilson: 11 minutes and 32 seconds. (The match was back and forth. Erebus Jennings hit Wilson with hard shots from the beginning, with Ryan eventually coming back and looked to put Jennings away. Territorial Invasion caught up with Ryan Wilson with Erebus eventually managing to put him away. After the match Erebus stood over the fallen Wilson extending out his hand to help Wilson up, but Wilson refuses before Erebus dropped him again and made his leave.)
(The camera cuts backstage as Andy Lush walks through the hallways of the arena, stopping as he sees ZERO sitting on a steel crate.)
ZERO: How’s it going, champ?
Lush: You’re funny.
ZERO: I don’t consider myself a comedian, but I thought it was brilliant. I thought you were going to return as the New Breed Champion?
Lush: We think a lot of things, sometimes things just don’t come to fruition.
ZERO: That’s one way of looking at it – I’d prefer to just say you weren’t good enough.
Lush: I beat you to earn the opportunity.
ZERO: And what did you do with that opportunity. Andy?
ZERO: All I’m getting from any of this is that you’re a loser. It’s fine, everyone has things they’re not proud of.
(Lush grits his teeth and walks away as ZERO looks on, still continuing to try to get under Lush’s skin.)
ZERO: Come on, Andy! You still owe me that New Breed Championship Match!
(The camera cuts to commercial.)
Kevin Hunter def. ZERO: 17 minutes 3 seconds (This match looked like it was going to be an absolute squash with Kevin Hunter dominating the opening minutes. ZERO managed to fight back and begin to create some momentum and looked to put Hunter away. Hunter managed to turn it around and put ZERO down to pick up the victory. After the match Kevin Hunter signalled that he wanted to be the first person to challenge Lars Grier before making his leave.)
(The camera fades to black as we’re met with flashbacks of EAW. It starts with a shot of RRS and Captain Charisma competing for the Hardcore Championship. The camera next cuts to a shot of Kawajai and Mr. DEDEDE going to war. The camera cuts between different shots of Team DDD vs The Ironfist, The 2013 Dynasty Elimination Chamber, Scott Diamond vs Impact.)
Narrator: Sometimes you need to go back to your roots to find true clarity.
(The camera cuts to a man walking through a hallway, shards of broken glass cracking under his feet as the camera slowly begins to rise. The man is revealed as Theron Nikolas wearing his King of Elite crown.)
Theron; Sometimes you need to make things a little extreme.
(The camera cuts to black as the Operation: Doomsday Logo flashes across the screen before cutting to commercial.)
(The camera cuts backstage as Lucas Johnson walks back and forth talking to himself.)
Lucas: What happened… I was a New Breed Champion; Young Lions Cup holder. I had the opportunity to become great, and it feels like the wheels have fallen straight out from under me. I feel like I’ve found the answers, but… nothing seems to be working.
???: It isn’t until you’ve truly reached rock bottom that you find the need to rebuild.
(Lucas looks up as Albert Hitchman is revealed to be walking into the camera’s frame.)
Hitchman: Do you know what the biggest problem you’re forced to face, Lucas? Nobody believes in you. You’ve always just been another guy. You’ve always just been another name that’s there to make up the numbers. You were the New Breed Champion – but, you were given nothing for it. Instead you were thrown back down into the crowd, rather than given the chance to continue to walk forward. The problem that you’re facing is that you’re continuously running into a wall that has been reinforced to make sure you can’t break through.
Lucas: They’re not always going to be able to keep me down.
Hitchman: I know, Lucas – because I’m going to make sure they don’t. I’ve created World Champion’s. I’ve managed Hall of Famers, and Lucas – I’m offering you the opportunity to learn under the same tree that they did.
Lucas: You’re offering to help me?
Hitchman: I’m offering to help you help yourself.
(Hitchman extends his hand as Lucas thinks to himself.)
Hitchman: I knew that you were a smart man, Lucas. Come with me – you have a lot of catch up on.
(The two walk out of the camera’s view before the camera cuts back to the stage.)
( “ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli plays on the sound system, and Cameron Ella Ava walks out to the ring dressed in her ring gear with a big smile on her face as the crowd gives her a massive ovation. )
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome, CAMERON ELLAAA AAVVAAAAAAA!!!!
Stew: Cameron Ella Ava is still in high spirits despite not being able to come away with the victory at Territorial Invasion, and to Cam’s credit Talib this woman certainly knows how to play the long game when it comes to her career.
Talib: No doubt about that my man, Cameron has made it clear from the beginning of this season that her goal is to hold the Answers World Championship before the season ends, and her performance at TI was still good enough to keep her as one of the top World Title contenders here on Dynasty.
( “ULTRAnumb” dies down and Cameron stands by in the middle of the ring with a microphone in hand. )
Cameron Ella Ava: Thank you Columbus! It’s great to see you all tonight!
Crowd: CAMERON! CAMERON! CAMERON! CAMERON!
Cameron: So I’ll own up to it, at Territorial Invasion I wasn’t able to get the job done. I fully planned on leaving Soldier Field in Chicago with the Answers World Championship, but Darkane made away with the pin fall over Impact just in time and come away with the win. And you know what? I’m happy for Darkane, I’m happy to see that he was able to prove that he was able to defeat that overrated mongrel, Impact.
I’d like to think that now that Impact took the “L” that he deserves, he can fall back in line or maybe go back to whatever retirement home HBG put him in last year. But unfortunately I have a feeling he isn’t going to lie down too easily. Well that makes two of us, because I’ve proven this summer that I have an answer for everything that Impact and the 1% throw at me, and I also have an answer for Darkane or whoever may be the Answers World Champion by the next time I get my title shot–
“ILLEST MOTHERFUCKER ALIVE”
( “Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Jay-Z and Kanye West hits, and Mr. DEDEDE walks out through the curtain wearing a “GAWDZILLA” t-shirt on as well as his ring gear. Cameron has an unamused look on her face as she tilts her head to the side, and DDD enters the ring after picking up a microphone from the apron. DDD closes in on Cameron and gets in her face, and Cam refuses to back down. The music dies down. )
Mr. DEDEDE: What was that you said? What was that about having an answer for The 1%?
Cameron: Yes, that includes you DDD. How was that vacation I sent you on by the way? Feeling refreshed and brand new?
DDD: Shut the fuck up bitch, shut your mouth right now.
( DDD and Cam share a tense moment. )
DDD: Listen to me you dumb slut, you know how the fuck my vacation went and you know how I’ve been doing since then. You saw what I did in the War Games, everybody saw it, so don’t get smart with me. Now you and I have some unfinished business Cameron, but then again you’ve got a whole lot of unfinished business to deal with in general. I know Impact better than you dom and if you think he’s going to let up on you so easily then you’re as dizzy as they say you are.
Cameron: DDD, I’m not afraid of you and I’m not afraid of Impact. I don’t care how much gravel you put in your voice, or how reckless you decide to talk, or if you grow your beard out again and transform into “Methuselah”, you aren’t going to intimidate me. If you have some hard feelings over what I did to you in that tag team match against Drillmatic, then I’m here every week pal. Why don’t you do something about it, instead of throwing around ridiculous insults?
DDD: Well don’t get ahead of yourself you stupid chickenhead because I intend to do something about it. Theron, Ripley and I are on a mission to completely forge a new era of Dynasty out of fire, and that includes incinerating the likes of you. I have a problem co-existing with you on this brand, I have a problem sharing the same locker room with you, and I’m not going to use my chairman powers to settle that problem, I’m going to use this ring instead.
Cameron: OK, fine! Put your money where your mouth is then. Let’s have this match right here, right now.
( Crowd cheers. )
DDD: Listen you goofy ass broad, I already have Johnny Ventura later tonight, I’m not going to give this dumpster of a city TWO Mr. DEDEDE matches.
( Crowd starts booing intensely. )
DDD: So here’s how it’s going to go down; next week, you and I are facing off in the main event, and mark my words I WILL destroy you. I’m not going to make it a stipulation match, I’m not going to put any rules and conditions, I’m going to break you at the game you think you’re so fucking good at, and then I’ll leave Impact whatever scraps of you that there are left. And if you pussy out of this at the last minute I will make sure you never so much as look in the direction of a World Championship in EAW ever again.
Cameron: Do you seriously think I’m going to hide from you? Wow you’re more delusional than ever. You’re on, DDD. I want this match, because when I defeat you there won’t be a single person in EAW who can question whether or not I’m deserving of competing for the Answers World Championship. And the so called “Gawd” will be nothing but a subject to The Goddess.
( DDD laughs. )
DDD: That’s real cute Cammy, but you know what why don’t you just walk back through that curtain and sit pretty and watch what I do to Johnny Ventura later tonight, and maybe we’ll see how ‘fearless’ you actually are.
( Cameron rolls her eyes, turns around and is about to walk away — but out of nowhere DDD slaps Cameron on her ass. )
Stew: LOOK OUT!!! IMMEDIATELY TURNS AROUND, AND DROPS DDD TO THE FLOOR WITH THE “KNOCK BITCHES OUT”!!! ROARING FOREARM SENDS DDD TO THE GROUND AND SENDS HIM ROLLING OUT OF THE RING!
( “ULTRANumb” comes back on the sound system, and DDD walks back up the ramp holding his jaw while Cam remains in the ring trash talking. )
Talib: DDD tried to pull a fast one at the end there, which I gotta admit was based as fuck, but still totally inappropriate and unprofessional!
Stew: Well Cam was not going to take that disrespect, and DDD’s lucky that forearm didn’t put his lights out! We’ve got to give Cam credit, she has shown no intimidation this season and really this whole year thus far! She’s been in some hopeless situations and made her way out of it, and while I know next week’s match won’t be a walk in the park for her, the last thing you wanna do is count out the Goddess.
(The camera cuts backstage as Starr Stan sits at his desk in his office as there’s a knock at the door.)
Starr: It’s open – oh, perfect, just the man that I hoped to see.
(The camera reveals Jack Ripley walking through the door; the Hardcore Championship resting comfortably on his shoulder.)
Starr: Congratulations, Jack. I might not be a fan of how you won that championship, but I guess that everyone knows what comes with that contract that you had.
Jack: I could have won in a fair match, but what’s the point in wasting effort. You called me here… because god knows that I have no want or need to be here. You’re cutting into my celebration time.
Starr: This won’t take long, Jack. Do you remember when I spoke about this brand creating a Revolution for this business? I wanted this brand to step forward and prove exactly what this business should be. This entire roster has up their game and tried their hardest to put the right foot forward. That championship on your shoulder, Jack – that isn’t apart of my vision. I don’t see the value in putting any of my talents in a situation that’s going to continually shorten their careers. Instead, someone in your position should personify WRESTLING. I thought that I would never find the want to hand this back over into the hands of someone else, but before doing so – I would like to tell you that the Hardcore Championship is officially being retired.
Jack: What?! You wait until I win it to do this?
Starr: Calm down; instead, due to your victory at Territorial Invasion – both being that championship and War Games. I want to award you this.
(Starr reaches under his desk and reveals the PURE Championship.)
Starr: This is the championship that retired with me at Pain for Pride IX. This is the championship that personified what it means to be the best. You didn’t hold this championship through underhanded tactics. You weren’t in a position to cheat. You were the PURE Champion because you were better than the person you were competing against. With the fall of the Hardcore Championship… I would like to crown you the new PURE Champion, Jack.
(Starr hands the championship over to Jack Ripley who tosses the Hardcore Championship aside.)
Starr: Your first challenger will be determined through a tournament that will run over two weeks, similar to how you became the contender to Darkane’s World Championship. The winner will face you at Operation: Doomsday in what we will call the Co-Main Event. Something fitting for that championship.
(Jack puts the PURE Championship over his shoulder as a big smirk crosses his face.)
Jack: Don’t worry, Starr. We’re going to have something in common soon. They’re going to have to retire this championship with me when the time comes – because I’m never losing it.
(Ripley makes his leave as Starr leans back into his chair before the camera cuts back to the ring.)
( “Clocks” by Phillip Klein hits, and Johnny Ventura walks out through the curtain, scanning the audience in the Nationwide Arena. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stephie Love: This following contest is set for ONE FALL AND IS YOUR MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING! Introducing first, weighing in at 220 POUNDS… JOOHNNYYYYYYYYY VENTURAAAAAAA!!!!
Stew: Ventura is just six days removed from losing his Hardcore Championship match during the Territorial Invasion bout against Ryan Wilson — however of course as we all remember his title was not actually taken from him by Wilson, but by 1% member Jack Ripley who would cash in his 24/7 contract and ensure his victory.
Talib: Ventura is definitely aware of his status here on Dynasty, he knows that he’s still owed a rematch technically speaking. But tonight is still an important match for him all the same, because if he can somehow manage to knock off Mr. DEDEDE I don’t see why he can’t G-check Starr into giving him a title shot as early as next week!
( “Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Jay-Z and Kanye West hits, and Mr. DEDEDE walks through the curtain in the same attire as he wore earlier. He saunters to the ring with a confident grin. )
Stephie Love: His opponent, representing The 1%; residing in the Ryan Adams estate of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, weighing in tonight at 231 POUNDS… MISTEEEERRRRR DEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Stew: Well “knocking off” Mr. DEDEDE isn’t exactly the most practical task you can give somebody. I’ve had my doubts about this man’s character but, especially after TI, I have no doubts at all that he is the most fearsome active roster talent in this company.
Talib: That performance at TI was bone chilling Stew, it was what I’ve come to expect out of this man watching him in REVOLT but truth be told… something was ‘different’ about it this time.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: Ventura doesn’t look quite fazed, and the two of them cautiously approach before engaging in a collar & elbow lock up. They’re both taking it rather slow, both of their bodies were put through tremendous punishment. Oh look at this! JV is putting DDD back against the ropes in this test of strength, and the referee looks to provide separation here. Now the two circle the ring again and engage in yet another lock up, but JV quickly catches DDD in a wrist lock and brings the arm behind the back. DDD reaches over with his other arm and turns his body as much as he can… leg trips JV to the mat, and lateral press!
Talib: Quick kick out, DDD immediately applies a rear chinlock, but Ventura is quickly fighting his way up from the mat as this Columbus, Ohio crowd begins chanting “WHO IS NEXT!” Ventura uses his strength to push DDD across the ring into the ropes, and he charges after DDD for a CLOTHESLINE OUT OF THE RING! DDD ducks that, sprints across the ring, rebounds off the ropes, JV goes after him — jumping shoulder block! JV recovers, another jumping shoulder block! JV gets back up again, DDD with an Irish whip into the turnbuckle, but JV counters the whip in mid motion and DDD ends up slamming into the corner real hard, kidneys first! DDD sinks down to a seated position and JV FIRES OFF WITH A RUNNING LOW DROPKICK INTO THE MIDSECTION! That may have knocked the wind out of The Gawd!
Stew: Evidently so, as DDD rolls out to the apron and drops down in front of us holding his midsection in pain. But look at this, Ventura exits the ring from the other side and comes right after DDD to LEVEL WITH WITH A STIFF RUNNING LARIAT! That takes The Gawd down the hard way, and Ventura pulls DDD up from the floor and looks to bring him back into the ring. Once he rolls DDD in, he follows DDD into the ring; but now DDD rolls out the other side and leans against the barricade for support. Ventura comes after DDD once again — but DDD successfully baited him in! DDD thrusts the shoulder blades into the midsection and DRIVES JV SPINE FIRST INTO THE RING APRON! Nice counter there, and DDD follows up by bashing JV face first into the ring apron and delivering a flurry of furious elbow to the side of JV’s head as it’s pressed against the sharp corner of the apron! Yikes!
Talib: The referee is trying to talk DDD out of it, but DDD continues to hammer away hitting over half a dozen of those sharp elbows into JV’s sandwiched head! Now DDD rolls JV back into the ring and follows him in with a cover!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWWWWOOO-
Stew: JV gets a shoulder up. DDD mounts back over him now and delivers a flurry of punches, prompting the referee to intervene!
Ref: Enough with the closed fists! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Stew: DDD relents just a little bit and now Ventura begins crawling away as quickly as he can, getting himself over to the corner and trying to get his wits about him after just getting his skull marinated with elbows. DDD seems to be arguing to the official that his fists weren’t closed, as if anybody’s gonna actually buy that. But now it seems he’s caught JV out the corner of his eye recovering at the turnbuckle, and now DDD is setting himself in position waiting for JV to fully straighten himself up… DDD SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING!!!!!! RRRRRRAPTUREEEEEE!!! HELLUVA KICK TO THE CORNERED VENTURA — NO — JV SIDESTEPS IT AND SCOOPS DDD INTO HIS SHOULDERS WITH A ROLL UP!
Ref: OOOOOOOOONEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Talib: Kick out there, but JV seamlessly transitions into hooking both legs under the arms…. and JV SENDS DDD INTO THE CORNER WITH A SLINGSHOT! BUT DDD CATCHES HIMSELF, AND SPRINGS BACK OFF WITH A CORKSCREW SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY!!! BUT VENTURA DUCKS UNDER THAT AND DDD HITS THE MAT HARD! DDD jumps up to his feet clutching his ribs in pain, and Ventura SPRINGS TO THE ROPES AND DELIVERS A SPRINGBOARD BACK ELBOW ACROSS THE JAW OF THE EAW CHAIRMAN!
Stew: YOU COULD HEAR THAT ONE FROM THE CHEAP SEATS! DDD WAS TURNED INSIDE OUT BY THAT ONE, AND VENTURA BRINGS DDD UP ONCE AGAIN… TO DELIVER A BACKPACK STUNNER!!! AND THAT MIGHT FINISH THIS MATCH RIGHT NOW! THERE’S A COVER, HOOK OF THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Stew: DDD kicks out again! Ventura seems bothered by that kick out, there aren’t many more tools in his arsenal that are better than that wicked springboard elbow shot and the backpack stunner to follow up should have ideally rocked him, but it was all for naught! Ventura doesn’t want to sulk too much, when you give DDD an inch he can take a country mile in an instant. JV gets back up and brings a sluggish DDD back up to his feet… before taking him up on his shoulders, looking for a DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!!! BUT DDD SLITHERS DOWN THE BACK AND MANEUVERS AN O’CONNOR ROLL TRANSITIONED INTO A CROSS ARMBREAKER!!! VENTURA IS WAVING AROUND HIS FREE ARM WITH NOWHERE TO GO, VENTURA IS DESPERATE FOR AN ESCAPE HERE, BECAUSE HE’S MERE SECONDS AWAY FROM HAVING THAT ARM YANKED OUT OF ITS SOCKET!
Talib: JV IS TRYING TO DRAG HIMSELF TO THE NEAREST ESCAPE WHICH IS BY ONE OF THE TURNBUCKLES, BUT DDD IS REEEARING BACK THAT ARM EVEN MORE AND THE FORMER HARDCORE CHAMPION CAN’T DO MUCH MORE THAN GNASH HIS TEETH AND HOLD HIS HEAD IN PAIN! HE’S ABOUT TO GIVE UP! HE’S ABOUT TO GIVE UP!
Stew: NOT YET, JV IS TURNING HIS BODY ON THE MAT THIS TIME, HE’S ACTUALLY CREATING MORE DISCOMFORT IN THAT CROSS ARMBREAKER BUT THIS TIME HE’S MANAGED TO GET A TOE DRAPED OVER THE BOTTOM ROPE!
Ref: LET GO DDD COME ON! HE’S ON THE ROPES! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Talib: DDD releases the hold and SHOVES the referee! And the referee shoves him back! The two engage in a heated argument, but the official is telling the boss that as far as this match is concerned HE is the authority to answer to! AND DDD KNOCKS THE REFEREE OUT!!! ONE PUNCH K.O.!!! WHAT THE HELL?
Stew: WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH HIM? YOU CAN’T JUST BLATANTLY ASSAULT AN OFFICIAL!
Talib: Well not unless you want a suspension or worse! But what’s DDD gonna do, suspend himself? Either way, we have no referee now, and this is basically the devil’s playground for DDD now because you can already see the gears start to turn in DDD’s head. DDD rolls underneath the ropes and digs under the ring, much to the behest of this crowd……. OH NO, OH NO, HE’S GOT THE EQUALIZER!!!! THAT GUITAR STUFFED WITH THUMBTACK, JAGGED NAILS AND SHARDS OF GLASS!!!
Stew: BAD THINGS ARE IN STORE FOR JOHNNY VENTURA, AND HE HAS NO EARTHLY IDEA WHAT HE’S DOING! JV ROLLS OUT OF THE RING HOLDING HIS LIMP ARM AFTER IT MOST LIKELY HAS BEEN SNAPPED OUT OF ITS SOCKET, AND A COMPLETELY UNSUSPECTING JOHNNY VENTURA HAS NO IDEA THAT DDD IS STANDING RIGHT BEHIND HIM…. PLEASE DON’T DO THIS!!! DON’T DO THIS!!!!
Talib: WHAMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!! DDD SMASHES THE EQUALIZER OVER VENTURA’S HEAD!!!!! JV DROPS TO THE FLOOR, AND HIS HEAD IS IMMEDIATELY GUSHING WITH BLOOD!!! FOR THE LOVE THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY, JV IS DEAD! HE MUST HAVE BEEN NEXT!
Stew: THIS IS NO TIME FOR JOKES TALIB, JV IS LITERALLY COVERED IN HIS OWN BLOOD UPON IMPACT! FOR GOD’S SAKES WE NEED SOME HELP OUT HERE!
( REPLAY: in slow motion, we see DDD swinging the guitar over JV’s skull and see shards of glass, as well as thumbtacks and jagged nails exploding out of the guitar and collapsing all around JV’s body before JV collapses to the ground. )
( LIVE FEED: DDD drags a blood soaked, half-dead Ventura into the ring and we get a close up of thumbtacks jammed into Ventura’s forehead, face and shoulders, small pieces of wood jammed into his flesh; along with blood running down his body and large gashes to come with it. )
Talib: THIS IMPACT IS WHAT PUT JAMIE O’HARA OUT OF EAW, IT’S PUT MANY MEN ON THE SHELF AND HELL IT EVEN TOOK DDD OUT OF THE EQUATION FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS… BUT DDD DOESN’T LOOK FINISHED!
( A referee jogs down the ramp and into the ring with gloves on, ready to call the bell to stop the match, but DDD intervenes and demands that he allow the match to finish. )
Stew: The official was looking to stop this thing to get the EMTs involved but that absolute psychopath DDD is refusing to allow this thing to stop! What the hell more does he want?!
Talib: DDD muscles Ventura up from the floor… AND NOW A VICIOUS MK DRIVER!!!!! LIFTING DOUBLE UNDERHOOK BRAINBUSTER SPIKES JV AGAIN INTO THE MAT, AND NOW THIS TIME HE DECIDES TO COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Jay-Z and Kanye West hits, and Mr. DEDEDE orders the referee to raise his hand before continuing the celebration himself. )
Stephie Love: Here is your winner, MR. DEDEDE…
Stew: I think I’m speechless…
Talib: This entire crowd looks horrified by what they just saw! This match started out as a pretty regular contest, but then all of a sudden DDD just snapped and COMPLETELY took this to a dark turn!
( DDD looks into the camera and makes a statement that could not be quite picked up by the camera. )
Stew: DDD is essentially sending out a warning to Cameron Ella Ava, telling Cam “this is what you can expect to happen to you!”
Talib: Well if you thought DDD wasn’t being serious when he said he plans to DESTROY Cameron Ella Ava, you had better reevaluate that because I have never seen him mean more business than he does right now!
( We see a blood soaked Johnny Ventura being carried out on a stretcher, while DDD celebrates his victory on the ramp. )
(EAW Logo Buzzes…)
