(EAW intro plays.)

(Friday Night Dynasty opens up with a recap of last week: SOSA Henderson opens the show staking a claim for the Cash in The Vault match. Xerxes Godfrey and Nick Hart get a win in the opening bout. Caroline gets the win over Anthony Cameron. Andrea Valentine beats Harley Lewis. Afterward, commentary says that StarrStan will be out indefinitely with a replacement to be found and Kassidy Heart not to be punished for her actions. Andrea Valentine is seen backstage unsurprised by this calling Kassidy spoiled and privileged before being attacked by her from behind. Xander Payne is interrupted during a promo by Ronn Banks who burns Xander’s school on the titantron leaving him in dismay. The Visual Prophet beats Joso. Jon Kelton cuts a promo backstage saying he’s going to win the Cash in The Vault. Serenity Valdez gets a victory over Nariko. After the match, Ximena Velasquez is seen attacking Serenity’s intern, Macy Miller. Astraea Jordan beats Halsey Neel. Afterward, Astraea gets attacked by Sheridan Muller who challenges her for Pain For Pride. Albert Hitchman comes out and exposes VPLA as a front for The Visual Prophet to get religious exemption via the school and everything else. Viz and Dr. Angelo D’Angelo come out and try and lie before just admitting that it’s true, attacking Albert and putting him through a table after mocking Andre Walker who tried to come out for the save but was too late. Then in the main event, Dr. Bethany Blue gets the win over Alex Myers. Afterward, Caroline attacks Bethany and challenges her to Pain For Pride to end the show and the recap.)

(The camera then goes to a shot of the Phoenix Suns Arena where ‘P.A.T.’ by Denzel Curry is heard blasting through the speakers while pyro shoots out from the stage. The crowd cheers loudly while the camera goes over and we get a glimpse of Stew-O and his two co-hosts Flannery McCoy and Jake Mercer as they prepare to speak.)

Stew-O: We are a week away from coming to you live from Sin City! But for now we come to you from Phoenix, Arizona welcoming you tonight to another exciting episode of FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY!!!

Flannery McCoy: Tonight we’re reaching the culmination of our Road to Pain For Pride. Where we’ll be having Season 15 Rewind Matches, along with matches being developed here tonight on the show. And I just can’t wait!

Jake Mercer: You know, I’m glad to have been here for another successful Season! Here’s to another tremendous Season!

Flannery McCoy: No.

(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX is heard blasting through the PA system of the arena while the camera transitions over from the announcer’s desk to the stage. The crowd roars into absolutely thunderous cheers while Andrea Valentine is seen making her way out from the backstage area. She has her Universal Women’s Championship resting on her shoulder which she takes into both of her hands and raises into the air with an enthusiastic smile on her face. She uses one of her hands to point around at the crowd before bringing her Championship down and slinging it back over her shoulder. She scans the EAW Universe in attendance one more time before then beginning to make her way down the ramp and to the ring with a microphone in hand.)

Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… the EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!!! ANDREA VALENTINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: Well, last week’s Dynasty was definitely an interesting one for Andrea. After beating Harley Lewis it was revealed that Kassidy Heart would not get any repercussions for what she did the previous week towards StarrStan. Of course, that wouldn’t go without Andrea having something to say about that, not all that surprised and holding her ground in stating that she is not intimidated whatsoever when it comes to Kassidy.

Flannery McCoy: Not forgetting that Kassidy would end up attacking her mid-interview and beating her down taking advantage of Andrea’s post-match fatigue. While security came in at the right time, Andrea sure hasn’t forgotten about it, and it looks like she has something to say here tonight to kick off the show. And after what has happened these past few weeks, who knows what will happen.

Jake Mercer: I’ll give you the inside scoop, I paid $10 to get this news from the dirt sheet so it has to be right, right? Alright so it says that, similar to how Kassidy has The Necro Mauler, Andrea will have another counterpart by the name of… well, they don’t know. But I was assuming it would be Andrea Halloween, Andrea Hanukkah, or Andrea Easter. I think either one of those would work, but it’s all just speculation at the moment. Can’t wait though!

(Andrea makes her way up the steel steps and onto the apron, entering the ring before turning around and climbing up to the top rope. She raises her Championship once again while the crowd continues to shower her in support. From there, she jumps down and begins to make her way over to the center of the ring while ‘Roll With Me’ begins to then come to a close. From there, Andrea brings her microphone up to her mouth and begins to speak towards the crowd.)

Andrea Valentine: So, who enjoyed Dynasty last week? Because I sure did. 🥰 Don’t you just love being attacked for speaking the truth? I mean, what was wrong with saying how protected Kassidy is from the ramifications of her actions? It’s not like anyone thinks I’m wrong, I’m sure they heard “per the Chairman” loud and clear. 🙄 But yeah, I definitely deserved that. I deserve that but meanwhile, we have to sit through the same old story when it comes to her and listen to the same old things and pretend we’re not annoyed with it. How’s she won this or that, apparently the greatest Elitist of all time, oh yeah, did I mention she’s married to DEDEDE yet? Cause if not, she surely did. This is why the more I think about it, the more of an explanation I get out of why she attacked me. I’m the only one that has seen through her little party trick and called her out for all of that bullshit that she’s run with for years. If it’s not that, maybe it’s her ego not being able to take the fact that I am more than just someone who she considered beneath her and lapped around. I mean, I can see why. That’s the mentality she’s brought into every match and nobody questions it. So to hear that now and to actually be hit with the cold hard facts alongside it? Well, it’s safe to say she’s not taking that so well, and would rather attack me from behind than get on the microphone with me again. 😉

Andrea Valentine: She believes what she wants to hear, and to add to that she has this circle of people that pamper her and place her on this pedestal to fuel that. And while I could name names, I’d rather prefer to give my thoughts on what I see when I look at Kassidy Heart. Because I don’t see someone who apparently paved the way for women like me to step into the limelight because I could name ten other people including myself that did the same exact thing before her. What I do see, is a predictable, bipolar, split-personality cunt who has only run loose for as long as she has because she’s been allowed and enabled to. When you get past all that smoke and mirrors, it’s not that hard to see. I’m going to make sure I’m the one that changes all of that and in turn, makes Kassidy a better person through defeat, because I’m sure I’m not the only one that believes that girl needs a reality check or two. All of that is going to happen at Pain For Pride, whether she likes it or not. But you know, speaking of, there’s one thing that Kassidy said that I’ve kept embedded into my mind these past few weeks, it’s the fact that she stated that between the two of us, she was the favorite. She was going to be the one who people thought was going to win the Universal Women’s Championship off of me. And while that’s cool and all, sure does fit your constant need for self-validation, am I supposed to care about that?

Andrea Valentine: Congratulations Kassidy, you’ve told me a statement I’ve heard one million times throughout my career, and it’s that I’m losing. Do you think, especially towards me of all people, I’m supposed to be affected by that? Well, that’s a shame because unlike most people I don’t need what they think to fuel what I believe. I’ve done enough throughout my career to trust my abilities as an Elitist and my skills, so I have no problem in saying Pain For Pride will go just as I expected regardless of whether or not I see Kassidy Heart or The Necro Mauler or whatever. But you know what? Kassidy wants to attack me from behind instead of saying it to my face? That’s really what she wants? This is the go-home show after all, I have absolutely nothing to lose. Come out to the ring Kassidy, so I can give you a much-needed cure for your bullshit.

(The crowd once again begins to cheer while Andrea drops her microphone down at the center of the ring and turns her attention towards the stage. She waits patiently with a serious look on her face while the crowd buzzes in anticipation. After a while, their expectations are met with ‘Partition (Smearcase Trap Remix)’ by Beyoncé being heard blasting through the speakers of the arena. The crowd bursts into a mix of cheers and boos mostly dominated by boos as the camera goes over to show Kassidy Heart making her way out from the backstage area and towards the stage. She doesn’t waste time with any sort of theatrics or whatever, instead only keeping her eyes focused on one thing and one thing only, and that’s Andrea.)

Stew-O: :lupe: Well we did say we have no idea what to expect here but it looks like we’re starting Pain For Pride week off with a brawl! Kassidy looks ready to go, Andrea looks ready to go, this is definitely going to be one to watch-

Flannery McCoy: YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! KASSIDY JUST SPRINTED FORWARD AND SLID INTO THE RING BEFORE GOING UNDER AND TACKLING ANDREA DOWN TO THE CANVAS! AND NOW SHE JUST BEGINS TO HAMMER AWAY AT HER HEAD WITH REPEATED FOREARM SHOTS! ANDREA DOESN’T TAKE SO KINDLY TO THAT THOUGH AS SHE MANAGES TO FLIP THE TWO OF THEM OVER SO THAT KASSIDY IS ON HER BACK AND NOW BEGINS TO GIVE HER FAIR SHARE OF FISTS TOWARDS HER FACE!

Jake Mercer: ANDREA CONTINUES TO TEE OFF- BUT KASSIDY MANAGES TO DIG HER NAILS INTO THE EYES OF ANDREA AND PUSH HER AWAY! ANDREA ROLLS AWAY IN RETREAT BUT QUICKLY RECOVERS WHILE THE TWO OF THEM ARE BACK UP TO THEIR FEET, AND ANDREA IS MET WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK! ANDREA FALLS AGAINST THE ROPES WHILE KASSIDY RUNS FORWARD GOING FOR A BOOT TO THE FACE TO SEND HER OVER THE TOP ROPE AND TO THE FLOOR- BUT ANDREA MANAGES TO PULL THE ROPES DOWN AND DUMP KASSIDY UP AND OVER TO THE RINGSIDE AREA!

Stew-O: Kassidy tumbles down to the outside and falls back against the barricade while Andrea rolls out of the ring and begins to make her way towards her- BUT BEFORE SHE CAN DO ANYTHING KASSIDY GRABS HER BY HER HEAD AND THROWS HER INTO THE BARRICADE! Andrea gives a cry of pain while Kassidy approaches her, GRABBING HER BY HER HEAD BEFORE SLAMMING HER REPEATEDLY AGAINST THE BARRICADE! AN ABSOLUTELY MERCILESS ASSAULT IS BEING SHOWN RIGHT NOW WHILE KASSIDY THEN BRINGS HER UP, BEFORE THROWING HER RIGHT INTO THE RING POST FACEFIRST! Andrea is slightly busted open right now and I’m not sure that’s what she wants as she begins to make her way around the announcer’s table, all while Kassidy approaches her like a predator that just found its prey and is looking to sink their teeth in. Kassidy grabs a hold of her head, BUT BEFORE SHE CAN DO ANYTHING ANDREA GRABS HER BY THE HEAD AND SLAMS HER DOWN ONTO THE FACE OF OUR ANNOUNCER’S TABLE!

Flannery McCoy: Andrea isn’t done though as she keeps a hold of the head of Kassidy, BEFORE SLAMMING IT AGAINST THE ANNOUNCER’S TABLE AGAIN- NO! Kassidy manages to hold out her arms before connecting with a back elbow to the face which forces Andrea back! ANDREA ATTEMPTS A CLOTHESLINE- But before that can connect Kassidy grabs her by the arm, BEFORE THROWING HER INTO THE BARRICADE WITH A BRUTAL IRISH WHIP! Andrea falls against the barricade spine first but manages to keep herself propped up, ONLY FOR KASSIDY TO CONNECT WITH A KNEE THIS TIME THAT LEAVES ANDREA ROCKED MOMENTARILY! Kassidy from there turns her around- BUT ANDREA CONNECTS WITH A KNEE OF HER OWN TOWARDS HER ABDOMEN BEFORE THROWING KASSIDY OVER THE BARRICADE AND INTO THE CROWD!

Jake Mercer: Kassidy attempts to get back up to her feet, ONLY FOR ANDREA TO RUN FORWARD AND LEAP OVER THE BARRICADE BEFORE TAKING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! AND HERE WE GO! NOW ANDREA AND KASSIDY HAVE SPILLED OUT TO THE OUTSIDE AND THE TWO ARE ENGAGED IN A BRUTAL FISTFIGHT WHILE THE CROWD CHEERS AND SURROUNDS THEM! BLOOD IS FLYING EVERYWHERE WHILE BOTH OF THEM TRY TO BASH THEIR SKULLS AGAINST THE CONCRETE! They manage to recover and get back up to their feet now, but Andrea instantly steps forward and connects with a knee to the gut, ONLY FOR KASSIDY TO LEAP INTO THE AIR AND FIRE BACK WITH A HIGH KNEE TO THE SKULL! The two of them are throwing everything that they have at one another so far and I can’t believe none of them are down yet! Their hatred for one another is too intense that’s insane!

Stew-O: BUT LOOK AT THIS! LOOK AT THE GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT JUST RAN OUT FROM THE BACKSTAGE AREA! THOSE ARE THE TEAM OF PROFESSIONALS THAT SERVE AS KASSIDY HEART’S HANDLERS! THEY JUMP INTO THE CROWD AND TRY TO CONTAIN KASSIDY AS THIS BRAWL BETWEEN THE TWO FUTURE PAIN FOR PRIDE OPPONENTS IS CLEARLY NOT GOING TO END SOON! KASSIDY AND ANDREA ARE BLOODIED UP AND YELLING AT ONE ANOTHER WHILE ANDREA TRIES TO FORCE THE BRAWL TO CONTINUE, BUT RINGSIDE SECURITY INSTANTLY SWARM IN AND GRABS A HOLD OF HER TWO AS THEY STOP THIS BEFORE THIS ABSOLUTELY EXPLODES! WHAT A WAY TO KICK OFF THE SHOW TONIGHT FOLKS!

(The last shot seen is both Kassidy and Andrea being escorted out through different areas of the arena, still trying to yell at one another and break free from their chains. All of that happens before Friday Night Dynasty from there begins to fade elsewhere.)

[SCREENBAR: OPERATION: DOOMSDAY 2021 – THE VISUAL PROPHET VS. ANDREA VALENTINE]

( ‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX begins to blast across the PA system and that causes the fans to get loud. )

Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A NUMBER ONE CONTENDER’S MATCH FOR THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!! INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDA… WEIGHING IN AT 110 POUNDS… PLEASE WELCOME… ANDREA VALENTINE!

( Andrea Valentine is seen making her way out from the backstage area with her arms spread out while the crowd continues to cheer. The gorgeous blonde steps onto the stage and is all smiles as she begins to make her way down to the ring. )

Flannery McCoy: Guys, I am PUMPED for this next match! Earlier tonight, the stakes were raised for this bout when it was decided by StarrStan that the winner between Andrea Valentine and The Visual Prophet will receive a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship come Territorial Invasion.

Jake Mercer: :drakelike: Big Viz with the gold around his waist once again is a dream come true for me, Flannery. Viz is without a doubt one of the best champions we have ever had here in Elite Answers Wrestling and it’s time he takes the throne back.

Stew-O: The same could be said for the woman who just got into the ring. Andrea Valentine reign supreme on Voltage a few seasons ago as the EAW World Champion, and did that championship justice. A lot of people wrote her off last season, after she went through a rough patch, but Andrea got a huge victory at Pain for Pride back in June and looks to continue that wave of momentum. Viz has always been a tricky opponent for her and if she wants to win here tonight, she is going to have to pull out something special.

( With Andrea in the ring, her theme music fades out. It is replaced by ‘Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)’ By Jimi Hendrix. )

Stephie Love: AND HER OPPONENT… FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN… WEIGHING IN AT 275 POUNDS… HE IS THE VISUAL PROPHET!!!!

( The Visual Prophet is then seen as he walks onto the stage and flexes his pecs just for the hell of it before he begins to make his way to the ring with all the confidence in the world while he does so. )

Jake Mercer: :drakelike: And there’s the man! The future World Heavyweight Champion! If there is one match that’s been a given tonight, it’s this one right here. Andrea Valentine has never once been able to fuck with Prophet in their previous meetings and I find it hard to believe that she has suddenly found the magic tonight. This man is who we need as champion right now. POWER TO THE PEOPLE! FUCK THE POLICE!

Stew-O: :mjlol:

Flannery McCoy: No one can deny just how great Viz was as World Heavyweight Champion. He won that belt back at Pain for Pride 13 in a match that none of us will ever forget and then reigned until the Extreme Elimination Chamber that same year. Since the drama surrounding his contract cleared up, Viz has been back in top form, and this time around, he fights with a purpose. No doubt the aggression and energy he will bring to this match will be designed to wear Andrea down and put her away in impressive fashion. I really can’t wait to see what these two Elitists have in store for one another.

( Viz is in the ring now, and the referee checks with both competitors to make sure they are ready. Once Viz and Andrea both give the go ahead, the referee calls for the bell. )

( Ding! Ding! Ding! )

Stew-O: The bell rings and this match is underway! Andrea motions for a lock-up, but Viz is calling for a test of strength.

Andrea Valentine: (off-mic) :usure:

The Visual Prophet: (off-mic) :mjgrin:

Flannery McCoy: Viz holds his hand up, but Andrea doesn’t fall for it! She kicks Viz in the mid-section, hooks his head, and drives him down into the mat with a DDT!

Jake Mercer: Viz immediately rolls to the apron of the ring. Did you know that when she was 11, Andrea Valentine became the youngest person to ever compete in the Olympic trials for women’s hammer throwing?

Flannery McCoy: I don’t really think that’s true unless it was for Fisher Price hammers.

Jake Mercer: I just report the facts, Flan, and do so while looking so damn good.

Flannery McCoy: :yikes:

Stew-O: Andrea doesn’t want to let Viz out of her sight, and given the history of these two, I can’t blame her. Viz and Andrea have faced each other a few times, with Viz winning every single match, and as we already alluded to earlier, this match has a lot more on the line now. She’s made her way over to the apron, but Viz was playing possum! He snatches Andrea by the hair and knocks her silly with a nasty headbutt! Andrea is down and Viz is pulling her out of the ring. Both competitors are down on the outside now and Viz slams Andrea face first into the hardest part of the ring!

Flannery McCoy: Andrea stumbles back but Viz punches her in the back of the head! Andrea drops to her knees and Viz starts stomping away on her! Andrea attempts to crawl towards the steps, but Viz pulls her up and attempts to whip her into the ring post! Andrea is able to block, and she kicks Viz in the stomach! He is unfazed, but Andrea fires off a series of forearms that connect with Viz’s jaw! He finally releases her and she drives Viz back first against the ring post!

Jake Mercer: Andrea grabs the ropes for a little leverage and she drives her foot under Viz’s chin. She’s choking Big Viz right now, while the referee is yelling at her to get back inside the ring. Andrea ignores him, or maybe she just doesn’t hear him :lupe:. Did you know that Andrea is fully deaf in her right ear as a result of being hit in the head with a hammer while competing at the Olympics trials when she was only 11 years old?

Flannery McCoy: 😑

Stew-O: Andrea finally relents and slips back into the ring in order to break up the count. She’s back on the outside, though, and she’s setting up for something. Andrea gets a running starts and there’s a handspring back elb-

Flannery McCoy: NO! Viz moved out of the way and Andrea’s elbow slams into the ring post! Andrea is gripping her right elbow now and Viz is about to zero in on that! He grabs Andrea by the neck and rolls her back inside in the ring. She is back to her feet pretty quickly but Viz drives his shoulder into her stomach and forces her back into the corner! He repeatedly kicks the shit out of Andrea until she is forced into a seated position and now Viz smartly targets her injured arm!

Jake Mercer: Viz wraps the right arm around the ropes and begins to kick it! Andrea is in a lot of pain right now, and the best part about that is that Viz doesn’t even care. He wants to continue asserting his dominance over this weak ass white woman, and frankly, I’m here for it. I don’t care that Andrea finished fourth in the Olympic hammer throwing trials when she was just 11, despite getting hit in the head and losing her some of her hearing.

Flannery McCoy: Man…

Jake Mercer: 🐴

Stew-O: Viz takes Andrea by the ankle and drags her out of the corner. He drops an elbow down across her throat and goes for a quick cover.

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWW-

Flannery McCoy: Kick out by Andrea, but Viz has got her by the arm. He slams it down into the mat and gets back to his feet. Viz with a few kicks to Andrea’s face now, before reaching down and bending her arm back. That right arm is exposed at an ugly angle right now and Viz just cruelly stepped on it! If Andrea’s arm wasn’t injured before, it most certainly is now, and she rolls towards the ropes to try and get herself a bit of a reprieve.

Jake Mercer: Viz grabs her by the tights and drags her back to the center of the ring! He’s down on the mat with Andrea now and he has her arm locked! Andrea is struggling to break free of his arm lock, and you know it has to hurt. Viz has been targeting it and softening it up for the last few minutes, and now he has it fully extended. Andrea looks to try and get to the ropes, but that’s not an option for her at the moment.

Stew-O: The referee is asking Andrea if she wants to give up, but she shakes her head no, and this match will continue on. To Andrea’s credit, she is not panicking despite the very real possibility that her right arm is injured. She’s a former 4-time champion here in EAW, and has been through a lot in her career. It is going to take a lot to make Andrea submit here tonight.

Flannery McCoy: And we all know that Andrea Valentine has the uncanny ability to fight back. She’s attempting to hook her legs around Viz at the moment, but that’s been unsuccessful. LOOK!! She just kicked Viz in the head! Andrea with several blows to the skull of The Visual Prophet and he has no choice but to relinquish the hold! Andrea quickly gets to her feet and she lunges at Viz! Viz side-steps Andrea, who bounces off the ropes! Viz is quick to try and grab her BUT ANDREA TURNS IT INTO A HURRICANRANA TAKE DOWN!

Jake Mercer: Viz is back up though! It’s almost like that didn’t even faze him! He’s built different :wow:

Flannery McCoy: No one has ever denied Viz’s talent around here. He is by far one of the most brilliant and gifted Elitists that EAW has ever seen.

Jake Mercer: Well yes, but I meant he is literally built differently. Look at those massive pecs 🥰

Stew-O: Andrea lunges at Viz, but he leapfrogs over her! Andrea hits the ropes and comes right back at Viz, putting on the brakes, and slapping the absolute shit out of him!

Flannery McCoy: Yes! But Viz is smiling! I think he liked it! Andrea peppers him with forearms, but I think she just unintentionally did more damage to her injured elbow! Nevertheless, she forces Viz back against the ropes and chops the hell out of him! Viz fires back with a chop of his own and it nearly brings Andrea to her knees! She is gripping her chest but she’s able to leap in the air! Andrea catches Viz under the chin with a jumping knee strike!

Jake Mercer: The force of that strike causes Viz to fall back against the ropes, and Andrea with a running dropkick that sends Viz up and over to the outside! Viz hits hard and Andrea is scrambling up the ropes right now, looking to go high risk!

Stew-O: ‘MAGIC HOUR’!!! THE ROUNDING MOONSAULT OFF THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE DOES NOT CONNECT! VIZ HAS CAUGHT ANDREA AND HE LETS HER DROP FACE FIRST ACROSS THE RING STEPS!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: :lupe: That was nasty! The edge of the step must have caught Andrea right above the eye because she has blood running down her face now. A lovely smile has just crossed Viz’s face because now he has not one, but two injuries to exploit. I think one thing that doesn’t get talked about enough is just how calculating of a competitor The Visual Prophet is. He’s one of the absolute best in the world and one of the biggest reasons why is because he knows how to break down his opponents. From mind games, to sheer physicality, Viz can play any game and beat absolutely anyone at their own. It goes without saying how impressive that is.

Stew-O: You are absolutely right, Flannery. Viz has dropped down beside Andrea and he is driving his knuckles into that open wound. Blood is pouring from that cut now, running into Andrea’s eyes, and there’s not much she can do right now to defend herself. Viz finally relents, but only so he can pull apart the ring steps.

Flannery McCoy: :lupe:

Jake Mercer: Big Viz places the steps across the face and right side of Andrea Valentine, and he gets back into the ring. That breaks up the count but Viz goes to the top rope!! DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO THE STEPS!!! ANDREA WAS JUST CRUSHED UNDERNEATH ALL THAT WEIGHT!

Flannery McCoy: VIZ KICKS THE STEPS OFF ANDREA, WHO ISN’T MOVING! HE THROWS HER BACK INSIDE THE RING BUT OPTS NOT TO GO FOR THE PIN! THE HELL? VIZ HAS GRABBED ANDREA’S RIGHT ARM AND HE PULLS HER UP! VIZ IS SPINNING AROUND AND AROUND! THIS IS A MODIFIED ‘AIR BAE’!!! HE IS SPINNING ANDREA AROUND BY HER INJURED ARM AND AT THE COUNT OF TEN, VIZ LETS HER FLY!!! ANDREA’S BODY SLAMS INTO THE CORNER!!!!

Jake Mercer: … that was one of the sickest things I have ever seen. I think he basically ripped her arm out of the socket :lupe:

Stew-O: VIZ QUICKLY PULLS ANDREA INTO A PIN AND COVERS!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: THE REFEREE SEES ANDREA’S FOOT ON THE ROPE! OUT OF SHEER INSTINCT ANDREA GOT HER FOOT ON THE ROPE! Viz almost looks amused by this and he opts not to go for another pin. Viz is back on the outside and he pulls Andrea towards the turnbuckle! Viz wraps Andrea’s arm around the ring post and pulls her into an armbar! Armbar around the ring post! Andrea is awake now and she is screaming! Viz is torturing her at the moment! The referee quickly starts the count and Viz releases right before the five! He slams Andrea’s arm into the post, slides back into the ring, and locks in another armbar!

Jake Mercer: :kellycry: Andrea is fighting for her life right now! She desperately throws her foot across the ropes and once again, Viz has no other choice but to break the hold before the five count. I don’t even think he is going for the win right now, guys. I think he just wants to systematically break down Andrea Valentine before he goes for the dub.

Stew-O: You are right because Viz has Andrea up and runs her to the center of the ring. A bulldog plants her face first into the mat, and Viz takes his time deciding what he wants to do next. Andrea is completely at this mercy right now, and while Viz contemplates his next move, he makes sure to keep his boot planted firmly on that right arm.

Flannery McCoy: This match hasn’t even been going on for that long, but I don’t see how Andrea could possibly continue at this rate. I know she’s a fighter, but there’s got to be a point where you just look at the bigger picture. Viz has dominated the majority of this match, and honestly, I’m sure a lot of people expected that. He’s just got Andrea’s number and there’s nothing she can do to really change that at the moment.

Jake Mercer: I really hate to agree with you, Flannery, considering how you mistreat me…

Flannery McCoy: :wtf:

Jake Mercer: But I think The Visual Prophet is setting himself up to have an incredible season this time around. It wouldn’t shock me at all to see him get his second world title reign sooner rather than later, and once he wins this match, he will be in line for that title shot, and no doubt the favorite against either SOSA Henderson or Xander Payne.

Stew-O: Viz has continued to press on that arm, but he’s pulling Andrea up by the hair now. God, this is hard to watch.

Jake Mercer: Why? Because Viz is a black man committing an act of violence against a white, blonde woman? :mjpls:

Stew-O: :wtf: What? No!

Jake Mercer: Where is the good Brother??

Stew-O: :whoa: You are taking what I said completely out of context.

Flannery McCoy: ANYWAYS. Viz has finally released Andrea’s hair but he’s moved to her legs. Viz is now working on the ankle, and we all know what’s going to happen next.

Stew-O: Viz is looking for the ‘Viz-lock’, but Andrea is able to use her free leg to kick him away! Viz comes right back at Andrea, but she catches him with another kick! Andrea trying everything she can to get herself back in this match and she somehow finds the energy to dive at Viz’s feet and knock him down to the mat! Andrea quickly mounts the former World Heavyweight Champion and wails away on him with her good arm! Viz is quick to throw her off but Andrea is up quickly! She greets Viz with a dropkick! He is right back to his feet though! Andrea, using her left hand, fires away with several punches that catch Viz in the jaw! He attempts to clothesline her, but Andrea ducks and leaps in the air! She wraps her arms around Viz’s neck and brings him down with a backstabber!!!!

Jake Mercer: Viz instinctively rolls onto the apron and quickly tries to pull himself up! Andrea is up too, and she looks for a forearm! Viz is able to block the shot, but Andrea dives between the ropes and catches him with a shoulder thrust! Viz barely hangs on! He almost got sent off the apron! Andrea tries again but this time Viz is ready and caught her in the mouth with a knee! She stumbles back just enough that Viz looks to slingshot himself back into the ring but Andrea catches him with a kick! Viz crashes into the mat and Andrea begins to stomp on his head!

Flannery McCoy: Viz is draped across the middle rope now and Andrea with a swift kick to the rib area! She immediately targets the head of The Visual Prophet and begins to kick, stomp, and punch at him! No doubt Andrea has gotten a second wind now, which is great to see when you consider how much abuse she has taken in this match. Andrea with one last kick to the side of Viz’s head and she heads for the ropes! Andrea is up top now, and we know she likes to fly!

Stew-O: DIVING LEG DROP OFF THE TOP ROPE! ANDREA QUICKLY PULLS VIZ AWAY FROM THE ROPES AND GOES FOR HER FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Jake Mercer: BAE KICKS OUT!

Flannery McCoy: Andrea nails Viz in the ribs with one last punch before she gets to her feet. Viz has rolled towards the corner and gotten himself in a sitting position. Andrea comes at him, but Viz is able to push her away. She fires back with a boot to the face and uses her foot to once again go for the choke. The referee has to start the count, and Andrea backs off at the four. She nails Viz with another boot to the face, and helps him up. Viz is in a standing position now and Andrea hooks his arms around the ropes.

Stew-O: Andrea begins to drive her knee into Viz now! Big Viz is doubled over and Andrea follows up with an uppercut! Viz’s head snaps back and there is Andrea with a beautiful spinning back fist! She pulls Viz out of the corner, wraps her arms around his neck, and drives him into the mat with a neckbreaker! Andrea hooks the leg for a cover!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Another kick out from Viz!

Jake Mercer: Viz once kicked out of a pinning predicament when he was wrestling the Lake Tianchi Monster during an exhibition match in North Korea. He was hanging with Dennis Rodman and the Supreme Leader of North Korea, the GOAT Kim Jong-un, and they were taking a leisurely stroll around Heaven Lake, and it was just this impromptu thing when Kimmy decided to tell his boys about the Lake Tianchi Monster. Viz, being a bit of a skeptic, dove head first into the lake and soon enough, he came up wrestling with that thing!

Stew-O: :wtf: Do you just sit around all day and write down a bunch of bullshit facts?

Flannery McCoy: … you know what? I low key believe this. :lupe: We all know that Viz is besties with Kim Jong-un.

Jake Mercer: :wow:

Stew-O: Wow. North Korea tried to blow up Rex McAllister and Ms. Extreme last season. North Korea isn’t friends with any of us.

Jake Mercer: Well Rex and Camille shouldn’t have wet through their broadcast booth, Stew! The North Koreans were just minding their own business and enjoying the match!

Flannery McCoy: Alright guys, let’s focus. Viz is crawling towards the ropes, all the while Andrea continues to kick him while he’s down. She’s come roaring back in this match, although I still question what kind of condition she’s in. She continues to shake out her arm, but it does appear she’s stopped bleeding. That gash above her eye is pretty nasty but her vision doesn’t seem to be bothered.

Jake Mercer: Viz has pulled himself up, but Andrea with a forearm to his kidney area. I didn’t know the former EAW World Champion was ambidextrous, to be honest.

Stew-O: Andrea has definitely been able to compensate for the lack of use her right arm has right now. She takes another shot at Viz’s ribcage and then kicks both of his knees! That drops Prophet and LOOK AT ANDREA! ‘VALENTINE’S MASSACRE’! THE HANDSTAND HEADSCISSORS DRIVER SPIKES VIZ’S HEAD INTO THE MAT AND ANDREA GOES FOR THE COVER!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEE-

Flannery McCoy: VIZ KICKS OUT!!!!

Stew-O: Andrea knows how important it is to stay on the attack, so she does just that! She helps Viz up and whips him into the ropes! Viz is able to duck an attempt at a lariat, but Andrea catches him on the rebound with a Thesz Press! Viz though! VIZ THROWS ANDREA OFF HIM! He’s quickly back up right as Andrea scales the ropes! FLYING CROSSBODY FROM ANDREA!!!

Jake Mercer: VIZZY CATCHES HER! VIZ HAS ANDREA IN HIS ARMS AND HE QUICKLY SPINS AROUND, DROPPING HER FACE FIRST ACROSS THE TOP ROPE!!!!

Flannery McCoy: VIZ GOES FOR A COVER, BUT ANDREA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND SCRAMBLES TO HER FEET! SHE RUNS THE ROPES AND VIZ LEAPS IN THE AIR! HE NAILS HER RIGHT IN THE CHEST WITH A BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK AND THAT TAKES DOWN ANDREA! That might have knocked the wind out of Andrea’s sails for now, and Viz is sitting up. He looks over at this opponent, who is trying to catch her breath, and a huge smile spreads across his face. He pulls Andrea up, BUT SHE RAKES HIM ACROSS THE FACE! ANDREA WITH A HUGE SLAP TO VIZ’S KISSER! SHE SLAPS HIM A SECOND TIME! AND A THIRD! ANDREA WITH A FOURTH STRAIGHT SLAP!!!!

Stew-O: VIZ BLOCKS THE FIFTH, BUT ANDREA CATCHES HIM WITH A KNEE TO THE STOMACH! SHE ATTEMPTS TO WHIP VIZ INTO THE ROPES, BUT HE BLOCKS IT AND LOOKS TO LEVEL HER WITH A SLAP HIS OWN! ANDREA DUCKS BEFORE VIZ’S HAND CONNECTS WITH HER CHEEK, AND SHE SLIPS BEHIND HIM, ATTEMPTING TO BRING HIM DOWN! VIZ GRABS HER BY THE HAIR AND SNAPMARES HER OVER WITH EASE, KICKING HER RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF HER SHOULDER BLADES! VIZ WITH A KICK TO THE BACK OF THE RIGHT ARM NOW, AND HE HAULS ANDREA UP BY THE SCRUFF OF HER NECK AND THROWS HER INTO THE CORNER!

Jake Mercer: IKE TURNER SPECIAL! THE SPINNING BACK FIST KNOCKS ANDREA OFF HER FEET AND SHE SLUMPS DOWN IN THE CORNER!

Flannery McCoy: VIZ BACKS UP AND MOTIONS FOR ANDREA TO GET UP! THE FEISTY FORMER CHAMPION AND PAIN FOR PRIDE HEADLINER USES THE ROPES TO PULL HERSELF UP! VIZ CHARGES FORWARD AND ABSOLUTELY DESTROYS ANDREA WITH A RUNNING CORNER CLOTHESLINE! HE GRABS HER BY THE HAIR AND SENDS HER FLYING ACROSS THE RING WITH A MONKEY FLIP! ANDREA IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS AS SHE RISES BUT VIZ! VIZ JUST TURNED HER INSIDE OUT WITH A MASSIVE LARIAT! VIZ WITH A COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEE-

Stew-O: BUT ANDREA GETS HER SHOULDER UP!

Flannery McCoy: Once again, The Visual Prophet seems a little amused by Andrea’s refusal to stay down :wow:

Jake Mercer: Viz sits back and allows Andrea to collect her bearings, and as Andrea slowly climbs to her feet, so does The Visual Prophet. Viz greets Andrea with a kick to the mid-section and quickly hoists her up into the powerbomb position. This is about to be the end for Andrea Valentine. I can feel it.

Stew-O: EXCEPT IT’S NOT! Andrea with punches to Viz’s head! She is fighting her damndest to try and get out of this predicament! Viz’s grip slips and Andrea is able to land on her feet! She shoves Viz against the ropes and slams him in the chest with a heart punch! Viz is reeling after that and Andrea takes a few steps back. She runs at Viz BUT HE GETS HIS FEET UP! ANDREA TAKES BOTH BOOTS ON THE CHIN BUT SHE SHAKES IT OFF! SHE COMES FLYING AT VIZ AND LEAPS IN THE AIR, TAKING VIZ UP AND OVER THE TOP ROPE!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: ANDREA LANDS ON HER FEET BUT VIZ IS ON THE APRON! HE HELD ON, BUT ANDREA WITH A SHOT TO HIS KIDNEY AREA! SHE SLIPS BACK INTO THE RING AND COMES RUSHING TOWARDS VIZ AGAIN BUT WOW! WOW! VIZ WITH A STEP UP ENZIGURI THAT CONNECTS OVER THE TOP ROPE! THAT’S SOME INCREDIBLE ATHLETICISM FROM VIZ!

Jake Mercer: :lupe: What the hell is he doing??

Flannery McCoy: :damn: SPRINGBOARD DIVING CLOTHESLINE AND DOWN GOES ANDREA! WHAT A MOVE BY THE VISUAL PROPHET!!!

Stew-O: VIZ IS QUICK TO FOLLOW UP! REVERSE STO INTO A TWISTING DDT! VIZ CALLS THAT ‘VDT’ AND IT MIGHT JUST BE ENOUGH TO PUT ANDREA VALENTINE AWAY!

Jake Mercer: VIZ WITH THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: ANDREA GETS HER SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND AND THIS TIME VIZ ISN’T AMUSED BY IT!

Stew-O: That’s his own fault, Flannery. He should have hooked the legs :lupe: Viz not hooking the leg made it easier for Andrea to be able to kick out and continue fighting.

Jake Mercer: Well, I think Viz is about done when it comes to toying with Andrea. Even if he has dominated a lot of this match, he still has to respect that caliber of opponent that she is. Andrea has gone toe-to-toe with the very best in the world, and won a lot of those matches, and I think Viz understands that it’s time to finally put her away.

Flannery McCoy: Andrea is basically deadweight in Viz’s arms as he carries her over to the ropes. He sits Andrea down on the top turnbuckle and begins to climb. I feel like Viz is looking for a superplex here, and Andrea may not have much left to try and stop it. Viz is on the second turnbuckle and he is unloading so heavy blows to Andrea Valentine’s right eye. That cut from earlier has reopened, and she’s bleeding again. That eye is going to be swollen tomorrow, no doubt.

Stew-O: Viz pulls Andrea up and looks to take the final ste-

Jake Mercer: HEADBUTT! ANDREA JUST CRACKED VIZ ACROSS THE FOREHEAD!

Flannery McCoy: VIZ LOSES HIS FOOTING AND ANDREA STARTS KICKING AT HIM! VIZ REGAINS HIS BALANCE AND CLIMBS BACK TO THE TOP, BUT ANDREA WITH ANOTHER HEADBUTT AND SHE SHOVES VIZ BACK WITH ALL HER MIGHT! VIZ FALLS FROM THE TOP AND LANDS FLAT ON HIS BACK, AND ANDREA DECIDES TO TAKE ONE MORE LEAP OF FAITH! ‘MAGIC HOUR’!!! IT CONNECTS ON VIZ AND ANDREA IS SMART ENOUGH TO HOOK THE LEGS!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Stew-O: VIZ STILL KICKS OUT!!!!

Flannery McCoy: An absolute cry of desperation escapes from the lips of Andrea Valentine. She knows that she needs to put The Visual Prophet away. Andrea has been through so much in this match and this has been the best chance she’s had to secure the victory for herself.

Jake Mercer: Yes, but if she’s going to do something big, she needs to do it now. We know how quickly Viz can recover in matches and continue to fight on. The man got hung from a meathook at least year’s House of Glass for fuck’s sake and he still managed to come back and defeat Mr. DEDEDE, of all people.

Stew-O: I definitely think Andrea knows that this is her shot and she looks to go up top again. We all know what’s coming next and it’s a move that’s put away so many of her opponents in the past. Andrea gets herself set on the top rope and waits for Viz. Viz is slow to sit up, and it takes him a few more agonizing seconds to finally get back to his feet.

Flannery McCoy: VIZ TURNS AROUND JUST IN TIME TO SEE ANDREA JUMP FROM THE TOP ROPE! ‘V-DAY’!! THE DIVING SOMERSAULT SEATED SENTON CO-

Jake Mercer: DOES NOT CONNECT! :damn:!!! VIZ CAUGHT ANDREA! HE HAS HER UP FOR A POWER BOMB! VIZ RUNS TO THE CORNER AND SLAMS THE ANDREA DOWN ONTO THE TURNBUCKLES! THE BACK OF HER HEAD STRIKES THE ROPE AND VIZ MAINTAINS CONTROL! HE SLAMS ANDREA DOWN WITH A POWER BOMB, AND THAT’S THE SECOND NASTY BLOW SHE’S TAKEN TO THE HEAD!

Stew-O: And to her credit, Andrea still somehow manages to get herself in a sitting position. What resiliency on the part of Andrea Val-

Jake Mercer: YOU WERE SAYING?? VIZ JUST FLATTENED ANDREA WITH A KICK TO THE FACE!!!

Flannery McCoy: VIZ JUST WENT TO GRAB ANDREA BUT SHE JUST ROLLED HIM UP FOR A SMALL PACKAGE!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOO-

Stew-O: VIZ KICKS OUT AND BOTH COMPETITORS ARE BACK UP AND IT’S VIZ WHO FINDS HIMSELF IN A PICKLE! ANDREA HAS LEAPT ON HIS BACK AND HAS WRAPPED HIM UP IN A SLEEPER HOLD! VIZ IS FLAILING HIS ARMS! ANDREA IS HOLDING ON TIGHT! SHE REFUSES TO LET GO AND VIZ HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO FALL BACK INTO THE CORNER! ANDREA DROPS, GIVING VIZ A QUICK BREATHER, AND VIZ FINALLY COMES ROARING BACK WITH A STIFF KICK TO THAT RIGHT ARM!

Flannery McCoy: Andrea is clutching at her arm again, so Viz makes sure to kick it a few more times before grabbing her out of the corner and hooking the tights. Viz attempts to lift Andrea in the air, but she blocks and levels Viz with several punches to the ribcage area. Viz with a nasty hammer-fisted like strike to Andrea’s back and this time he hauls her up with relative ease and lets her hang there! All that blood is rushing to Andrea’s skull right now and Viz drops her down with a lovely, stalling suplex.

Jake Mercer: Viz takes his time getting back up but I know what he’s going for. Viz is about to put the final nail in Andrea’s coffin and take it to the air himself.

Stew-O: I think you’re right, Jake! Viz is about to end this match with a ‘Bow to the Heart’!!!!

Flannery McCoy: WAIT! ANDREA IS SITTING UP AND SHE MAKES A DESPERATION DIVE TO THE ROPES! VIZ IS CROTCHED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!

Jake Mercer: :mjcry: That had to hurt him. I know it did.

Stew-O: ANDREA WITH A HANDSPRING HURRICANRANA, AND SHE BRINGS VIZ DOWN FROM THE ROPES! ANDREA LOOKS DOWN AT VIZ AND SHE IS GOING FOR ANOTHER ‘V-DAY’!!! THESE TWO ARE HAVE TAKEN SO MANY RISKS TONIGHT AND ANDREA VALENTINE LOOKS TO COME BACK FROM THE DEAD AND TAKE THE VICTORY!!!!

Flannery McCoy: THIS TIME THE ‘V-DAY’ CONNECTS!!!! ANDREA VALENTINE HAS THE VICTORY!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Jake Mercer: YES! YES! YES! VIZZY BABY GOT HIS SHOULDER UP! VIZ JUST KICKED OUT OF ‘V-DAY’ AND ANDREA VALENTINE IS COMPLETELY STUNNED! THAT MOVE HAS PUT AWAY SO MANY ELITISTS BUT NOT BIG VIZ! IT’S GOING TO TAKE A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN THAT TO PUT AWAY ONE OF THE BEST OF ALL-TIME!

Flannery McCoy: FRUSTRATION AND ANXIETY ARE WRITTEN ALL OVER ANDREA’S FACE RIGHT NOW! IF SHE WANTS TO GET BACK INTO THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP PICTURE THEN SHE NEEDS TO DISPOSE OF VIZ RIGHT AWAY!

Stew-O: ANDREA HEADS OVER TO THE VIZ AND JERKS HIM UP TO HIS KNEES! SHE DRIVES HER KNEE INTO HIS FACE AND THERE IS ‘VALENTINE’S MASSACRE’!!! VIZ IS OUT LIKE A LIGHT BUT WAIT A SECOND… WHAT IS SHE DOING??

Jake Mercer: ANDREA PULLS VIZ BACK TO HIS KNEES AND HITS A SECOND ‘VALENTINE’S MASSACRE’!!! I THINK SHE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THE VISUAL PROPHET IS TRULY OUT BEFORE SHE TRIES TO FINISH THIS MATCH AGAIN!

Flannery McCoy: ANDREA HITS TWO MORE ‘VALENTINE’S MASSACRES’ ON THE VISUAL PROPHET AND THAT FOURTH ONE SPLIT HIS FOREHEAD OPEN! ANDREA PULLS HIM BACK TO HIS KNEES FOR A FINAL TIME AND DRIVES HER KNEE INTO HIS FACE! SHE IS ABSOLUTELY GOING HAM ON VIZ RIGHT NOW! SHE LEVELS HIM WITH A FINAL KNEE STRIKE AND SHE’S TRYING FOR A FIFTH ‘VALENTINE’S MASSACRE’!!!!

Stew-O: HER ARM GAVE OUT! ANDREA’S RIGHT ARM JUST WENT OUT!

Jake Mercer: DOES IT MATTER?? THE VISUAL PROPHET HASN’T MOVED A MUSCLE IN THE LAST FEW MOMENTS :lupe:!!! I THINK HE’S DONE FOR AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE ABOUT TO CROWN A NEW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

Flannery McCoy: I DON’T THINK IT MATTERS! ANDREA IS HOLDING HER ARM AND LOOKING FOR ‘V-DAY’!!! VIZ ISN’T GOING TO BE ABLE TO CATCH HER OR MOVE THIS TIME!!!!

Stew-O: SHE HITS IT! ANDREA LETS OUT A CRY AS SHE HOOKS THE LEG AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

( Ding! Ding! Ding! )

( “Roll With Me” begins to blast across the PA system and the fans in attendance start to cheer. It was a crazy back and forth match between two former world champions and they loved every single second of it. )

Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP… ANDREA VALENTINE!!!

( Andrea has gotten to her knees and is savoring her victory. Her right arm hangs limply by her side and her face is covered with blood, but none of it even matters. She finally knocked off the man who’s proven to be her kryptonite in EAW, and that is The Visual Prophet. )

Stew-O: What an incredible match from two people who are no doubt Hall of Fame bound one day. Andrea Valentine and The Visual Prophet hit each other with everything they had, and in the end, it was Andrea who targeted Viz’s head and was able to knock him out so she could secure the pin.

Flannery McCoy: I have no words to even describe the amount of respect I have for Andrea Valentine. She’s had so many ups and downs here in EAW, but no matter what situation she finds herself in, she always finds a way to deliver. I have never once left an Andrea Valentine match feeling disappointed because this woman’s heart is second to none. I could not be more happier for Andrea, and I can’t wait to see her chase a world championship again!

Jake Mercer: Do you have any chapstick, Flannery? Are your lips nice and soft for Andrea’s ass that you are kissing? Andrea got lucky tonight, and that’s all there is to it. Viz made one mistake, and that was not hooking the leg when he went for the winning pin, and it gave Andrea just enough hope that she could still pull the match out. I hate it for Viz. I was ready to live in a world where The Visual Prophet defeated that fat fuck Xander Payne and reigned supreme. Wakanda forever :mjcry:

Stew-O: :mjlol:

Flannery McCoy: I… you know what? It just isn’t worth it. Andrea Valentine just won a hell of a match, and congratulations to her!

( A final shot is taken of Andrea relishing in her victory before the camera fades elsewhere. )

(The Camera would fade to the Backstage Area, where Dynasty Interviewer, Michael Belfort, would be seen in front of the Camera with a Microphone in hand. He looks around, before being given the ok to speak, as he smiles, and lifts the Mic up.)

Michael Belfort: As you all know, at Pain For Pride, there will be the annual 24/7 Contract Battle Royale. This Battle Royale, and the 24/7 Contract specifically, has made a lot of stars as you all know. In recent memory, you have seen the likes of Justin Windgate, and current National Elite Champion Donovan Duke take the Contract and end up winning Championship Gold, and now this year, 17 Participants will have the opportunity to repeat the same history to see who exactly walks out with the Contract! But out of those 17 Participants, there are 6 out there who will be representing Friday Night Dynasty, and have one of them with me right now! So let me introduce to you…Halsey Neel!!!

(Halsey Neel would walk into the Camera Frame, as she would greet Michael before leaning back against some crates.)

Michael Belfort: Thank you for joining me, Halsey!

Halsey Neel: Pleasure to be here.

Michael Belfort: So before we get to the topic of the 24/7 Contract Battle Royale, let’s talk about your run here in Elite Answers Wrestling since joining the Company, and more specifically, your time here on Friday Night Dynasty! In recent weeks, you have faced two EAW Elitists who in no doubt are future Hall Of Famers in Astraea Jordan, and you even beat the other one in Sheridan Muller! Do you wanna talk about that?

Halsey Neel: From the very moment that I joined the Dynasty Brand, I proved to everyone that I will be one of the best. I beat fucking Sheridan Muller! I took Astraea Jordan to her limits! I proved to hang with some of the best female Elitists on this brand, and future Hall Of Famers no doubt, even beating one in the process. To say that I have made a statement since joining the Company, and of course, since moving to Dynasty, would be an understatement. I have proved from the very beginning that I can hang with the very best, and I will continue to prove it moving into Season 15. So after beating Sheridan Muller, after taking Astraea Jordan to her limits, what is next for me? Well, I focus towards Pain For Pride, and I focus on winning that Battle Royale!

Michael Belfort: And with that, it brings me to why I have you here. With you getting prepared for your first Pain For Pride, how are you feeling going into the 24/7 Contract Battle Royale? Is there any doubt? You have 16 other hungry Participants in this Match who will make sure they do whatever it takes to make sure that they can walk out of Pain For Pride with that Contract! Are you feeling any nerves? Is there any confidence issue knowing what you are getting yourself into?

Halsey Neel: Confidence issue? No. None at all. Am I feeling any nerves going into Pain For Pride? Once more, no. None at all. I am fully confident heading into my first Pain For Pride, and I know damn well what exactly I am getting myself into. 16 other Participants will be eyeing to eliminate me in this Match, and hell, my Matches against Astraea Jordan and Sheridan Muller were nothing more than a precursor to what is going to happen at Pain For Pride, when inevitably, I win that Battle Royale, and I win that 24/7 Contract. And from there? I will start Season 16 on a high note, and I will continue that momentum, and I will continue to climb up the ranks! So when you ask me if I have any confidence issues for this Match, the answer is, was, and always will be no. I know damn well what I am capable of, and I am fully confident heading into this Match. Why? Because no one can beat me, and no one will beat me-

(Halsey Neel would then be cut off, as someone would walk into the Frame, as it is revealed to be Xerxes Godfrey! Xerxes would look into the eyes of Halsey, before he looks towards Michael Belfort, taking the Microphone away from him.)

Xerxes Godfrey: You won’t be needed anymore, I will be asking the questions from here on.

(Michael Belfort looks confused, but ends up shrugging as he steps out of Frame. Xerxes would look back into the eyes of Halsey, as they have a staredown for a few moments, before Xerxes would begin to speak up.)

Halsey Neel: Why-

Xerxes Godfrey: Shush. I will be asking the questions, you got that? Great! Now Halsey, let me ask you…who has been doing more on the Dynasty Brand in terms of Rising Stars and New Breeds here than me? Seriously, who has been doing a better job at climbing the ranks of Dynasty and EAW, and proving to be the future every time they step into the ring, more than me?

Halsey Neel: I-

Xerxes Godfrey: Nobody. Exactly! You see, from the very moment that I joined this Company, I was looked at as the future. In my debut Match here in Elite Answers Wrestling, who did I face? In a First Round Match of the King Of Elite Tournament, I faced the current Interwire Champion, one of the biggest headliners of this year’s Pain For Pride, and the man who would go on to win the Tournament and become King Of Elite; Andre Walker. I faced that man in my debut, and what happened? I came close on multiple occasions to beating him. My first Match in this Company, and I was second to last from the Main Event, and I faced the same person who would go on to win the King Of Elite Tournament, and the same person who is now headlining Pain For Pride against The Visual Prophet. Brag about your win against Sheridan Muller and Match against Astraea Jordan, but when asking the question; who has done more than Xerxes Godfrey at being a Rising Star, the answer would be nobody.

Halsey Neel: You have a lot of nerve-

Xerxes Godfrey: Nun-uh, I’m not done yet! Next question, do you know what I did after that? Do you know why you are going to lose the Battle Royale at Pain For Pride?

Halsey Neel: I’M NOT LOSING THE BATTLE ROYALE!

Xerxes Godfrey: YES YOU ARE, AND THE REASON IS BECAUSE I AM IN THE MATCH! At Reckless Wiring, I won a Showcase Ladder Match against other Rising Stars here, and at Pain For Pride, I will win the 24/7 Contract Battle Royale. You are going to lose, and when people ask just how you lost – why you lost, remember to tell them it was because I was involved in this Match. Because Xerxes Godfrey is better than Halsey Neel. Got that?-

(This time it is Xerxes Godfrey who gets cut off, as Lila Vandram comes running into the Frame. She snatches the Microphone from Xerxes Godfrey, before jumping onto the crates, sitting in between Xerxes and Halsey Neel.)

Halsey Neel: You have to be kidding me-

Lila Vandram: Did you guys know that, everyone from Dynasty who is in this 24/7 Contract Battle Royale, are all making their first Pain For Pride appearances? From Dynasty, this is everyone’s first appearance at Pain For Pride, and of course, we are all looking to make a statement right?

Xerxes Godfrey: Right?

Halsey Neel: Well…yeah?

Lila Vandram: TOO BAD! While you guys WANT to make a statement at Pain For Pride, what is going to happen? I am GOING to make a statement at Pain For Pride, when I win the 24/7 Contract Battle Royale! Xerxes you may think you’re good, but you’re not better than me. Same with you, Halsey, you may think that you are good, but are you better than me? No, and you never will be! So you guys can TRY come Pain For Pride, but in the end, it will be ME who wins the Battle Royale! It will be ME who wins the 24/7 Contract, and it will be ME who makes a statement at Pain For Pride!

(This causes an argument between Lila, Xerxes and Halsey, but it is quickly interrupted by Liana DeLion. She quickly comes into Frame, and snatches the Microphone from Lila Vandram, before backing away as Lila looks at her with a face of anger. Xerxes and Halsey would turn towards her, looking confused.)

Xerxes Godfrey: Who are you?

Liana DeLion: You know who I am.

Halsey Neel: We really don’t.

Xerxes Godfrey: :mjlol:

Lila Vandram: :madstare:

Liana DeLion: Enough! While you three were bickering about who is winning the Battle Royale, you all were blinded to realize who exactly was going to win; me! I am stronger, faster, smarter, and healthier than everyone else in this Match, and it would be no surprise when at the end of the Battle Royale, you see me, Liana DeLion, holding the 24/7 Contract in the air, and I will make sure to show off to every single one of you. I am better than everyone in this Match combined! Combine everyone in this Match, and guess what? They still don’t reach the level that Liana DeLion is on! :whew: I love being me!

Xerxes Godfrey: We can’t reach your level because unlike you, we know how to stay above the depths of hell.

(Liana DeLion would go to walk away, but suddenly what is said stops her right in her tracks, as she turns back around…and an argument happens once more. This time, it is interrupted when Nick Hart enters the fray, quietly grabbing the Microphone from Liana before backing up and getting everyone’s attention.)

Nick Hart: All of you losers CHILL OUT!

(Halsey Neel looks towards Lila Vandram.)

Halsey Neel: :francis:

(Lila Vandram looks towards Liana DeLion.)

Lila Vandram: :francis:

(Liana DeLion looks towards Xerxes Godfrey.)

Liana DeLion: :francis:

(Xerxes Godfrey looks straight into the eyes of Nick Hart, snickering.)

Xerxes Godfrey: You could quite literally lose to a stick, dude. Get out.

Nick Hart: :noah: Okay, so maybe I haven’t had the best luck since my debut here in EAW, but as of recently, I have been doing quite well for myself. And guess what? I am looking to keep that momentum moving towards Pain For Pride, and that momentum will all pay off when in the 24/7 Contract Battle Royale, like the ringmaster I am, I will use my smarts to eliminate each and every one of you one, by one, and when it’s all said and done, I will be the winner, and I will be holding the 24/7 Contract high in the air! All of you think of me as some sort of loser, but that will all change at Pain For Pride, when I make a statement, and I make the name of Nick Hart known. And sooner or later, you will stop calling me a loser, and you will start calling me a Champion! Sounds pretty nice, does it?

Halsey Neel: Not really.

(MORE ARGUING! The arguing would go on for about a minute, before suddenly, slowly walking into Frame, is none other than Nariko. Everyone notices her, and goes silent, looking directly at her as Nariko takes the Microphone out of Nick Hart’s hand. Nariko would eye down everyone, but quickly focus her attention on Halsey Neel.)

Halsey Neel: WHY-

Nariko: Shut up. So, this is all of the representatives for Dynasty in the 24/7 Contract Battle Royale? Pfft, give me a break. Halsey, you’re good, but you’re not good enough. Lila Vandram, you’re just a nobody! Liana DeLion and Nick Hart? Nothing but a couple of losers. Xerxes Godfrey? Congratulations, you had an amazing start here in Elite Answers Wrestling, facing Andre Walker in your debut Match, winning the Showcase Ladder Match at Reckless Wiring, it’s impressive. Do you want to know what I did in my debut? I was put into the Empress Of Elite Tournament, and when no one thought I could, I made it to the Semi-Finals of the whole Tournament. I took Miku Sakai to her limits, and although I lost, I made a name for myself. At King Of Elite, I had a star-making performance in the Specialist Championship Number One Contender’s Match, but I got injured in the process. Fast forward to Grand Rampage, I made my return, and now I am back, and now? I am looking to walk in, and walk out of my first Pain For Pride as the winner of the 24/7 Contract Battle Royale.

Nick Hart: Who cares?!?!

Nariko: Come back to me when you’re not losing to a Toddler inside of a Daycare.

Nick Hart: :noah:!!!!!

Nariko: As I was saying-

Xerxes Godfrey: You know Nariko, you may think that you have this Match won, but we have seen how you have been since returning to EAW. Losing to the likes of Joso? Losing to the likes of Serenity Valdez? Do you really have any room to speak here?

Halsey Neel: Didn’t you just lose to Joso a couple of weeks ago?

Xerxes Godfrey: I WASN’T PINNED.

Nariko: AS I WAS SAYING… At Pain For Pride, I know each and every one of you, not only the representatives from Dynasty, but the ones from Showdown and Voltage as well, will all be in here to make a statement. But it’s all about who wants this Match more – who wants this win more, and no matter how much you try to deny it, at the end of the day, it will always be. It will always be Nariko. I want the win more, and I want that 24/7 Contract more than anyone else in this Battle Royale.

(Nariko would then look towards Nick Hart, Nick looking confused as he looks directly back at Nariko.)

Nariko: But, if all you kids can do is whine, complain, and argue? Then how about we give everyone a little preview of what’s to come at Pain For Pride? I’ll start with the bitch.

(Nariko would then throw the Microphone at Nick Hart, and as Nick is about to catch it, Nariko attacks him! Everyone looks at what’s going on being Nariko and Nick Hart, before the Camera focuses on Lila Vandrum…)

Lila Vandrum: shrug

(AND A FIGHT BETWEEN EVERYONE IS ON!)

Stew-O: ARE WE ON? THIS CONFRONTATION BETWEEN EVERYONE ON THE DYNASTY SIDE OF THE PAIN FOR PRIDE BATTLE ROYALE HAS TURNED PHYSICAL, AND NOW IT’S AN ALL OUT BATTLE BETWEEN EVERYONE! THIS IS UTTER CHAOS!

Jake Mercer: FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Flannery McCoy: IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE ALL GOING TO FIGHT THROUGH THE BACKSTAGE AREA! THEY ARE ALL MOVING OUT TO AN EVEN BIGGER AREA OF THE BACKSTAGE, AND THE CHAOS CONTINUES! CHAIRS ARE BEING THROWN AROUND, BACKSTAGE EQUIPMENT ARE BEING THROWN AROUND, BODIES ARE FLYING EVERYWHERE!!!!!

(The Camera is able to catch as Nariko connects with the ‘Nari-KO’ Spinning Hook Kick to Nick Hart by surprise, as Xerxes Godfrey can be seen connecting with the ‘Pierce Of Eden’ Double Underhook Facebuster right to Liana DeLion, as well near thirty Security Guards run onto the scene to break up the fight.)

Jake Mercer: NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: SECURITY HAS ARRIVED AS THIS FIGHT BETWEEN THE SIX PARTICIPANTS CONTINUE TO GET MORE HEATED, AND EVERYONE STARTS TO GET SEPARATED!!!

(The Security Guards continue to separate everyone, holding them away as the Camera would fade elsewhere.)

[SCREENBAR: OPERATION: DOOMSDAY 2021 – XANDER PAYNE VS. SOSA HENDERSON – WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP]

(Inside the ring stands Stephie Love, a smile on her face as she’s prepared to announce the upcoming main event title match!)

Stephie Love: The following singles contest is scheduled for-

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

Stephie Love: AND IT IS FOR THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

(“Faneto” by Chief Keef begins to play the crowd lights up into a mixed reaction as SOSA Henderson comes making his way out onto the stage, hyping himself up and looking at the audience before he starts to make his way down!)

Stephie Love: Introducing first, the challenger, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania… weighing 191 pounds… he is “BULLETPROOF” SOOOOSSSSSAAAAAAA HENNNNNNDDDDEEEEERRRRRSSSSSSOOOONNNNNN!!!!!!

Stew-O: SOSA Henderson is here tonight challenging for the World Heavyweight Championship after calling his shot and convincing Xander to accept him as his opponent for this match! SOSA was absolutely not about to let Xander live down the fact that he would’ve been remembered for shying away from the challenge SOSA presented, and now SOSA looks to make the most of this by becoming a World Champion for the second time!

Flannery McCoy: It’s a huge opportunity for SOSA right out the gate this season, but as we’ve come to know SOSA, he would never turn down a chance like this and once he saw it could be his to have, SOSA wasn’t passing this up! SOSA has everything it takes to win here tonight and it’d definitely be a humbling moment for Xander after all he’s had to say about SOSA and his mentor, Heart Break Boy!

Jake Mercer: SOSA’s definitely managed to push some of Xander’s own buttons though, calling into question what it means for Xander to be representing the title and Dynasty, and SOSA basically called him unfit! But saying Xander’s unfit is like pointing out that the sky is blue!

(SOSA makes his way into the ring, and goes to stand on the far side of it, where he motions toward the stage for Xander to come on out. SOSA looks more than ready to get this match started and he’s not looking to wait any longer!)

( While SOSA Henderson impatiently waits in his designated position in the ring, waiting to get this contest started, he is startled by a huge pyro explosion shooting up from the Operation: Doomsday stage. The crowd responds to the pyrotechnics with a wild roar as the first bell of “It Follows” by Cane Hill blasts through the speakers; turning the hype into boos. )

( The first bell turns every titantron in the arena pitch black. )

( The second bell introduces four rows of gold-tinted rays focused on the stage )

( The third bell then prompts a bigger golden spotlight. It appears in the dead middle of the stage as it uncontrollably moves around before stabilizing in the center. )

( With the fourth bell, the stage floor suddenly begins to open up. “It Follows” begins to start playing as Xander Payne emerges from the bottom of the stage. )

( The loud boos are evenly distributed throughout the Tropicana Field at an even louder sound as Xander Payne gradually emerges from the ground up. Xander Payne appears to be wearing an attire reminiscent of the usual Heart Break Boy attire. He sports the newest edition of his Paynekiller 1’s and rocks blue camouflage pants with matching chaps and black broken hearts scattered throughout the leg. )

( Xander mocks his mentor’s entrance by dancing around the stage, flexes his bicep muscles and does his signature pose at the end of the stage. )

Stew-O: Is all of this really that necessary?! Xander Payne promised to send SOSA’s career fading into obscurity with Heart Break Boy’s but wouldn’t he think that this is doing a bit too much? SOSA isn’t to be messed around with and getting personal like this could bring something out of SOSA that Xander isn’t ready for!

Flannery McCoy: My thoughts exactly, Stew! On one hand, I can’t believe that Xander would do something like but then on the other, I can, because he’s certainly not above something like this and trying to make flashy statements this way. I’m pretty sure I can remember him putting a wax replica of Cameron Ella Ava’s head in a bear trap once upon a time.

Jake Mercer: It’ll be interesting to see how SOSA responds! Xander’s made it known weeks ago that HBB wouldn’t be off limits but who would’ve thought he’d take it this far?!

Stephie Love: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Toronto, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 252 pounds….. HE IS TO BE RECOGNIZED AS THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… THE PAYNEKILLER… XAAAANDERRR PAYNE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

( The first row audience tries to grab onto the encrusted mirror and chains of his overcoat in hatred—which says “The Showstopper” on the back—but it is in vain. SOSA Henderson is obviously not entertained at this at all, but Xander looks at him with a smile on his face and tips the signature Heart Break Boy cowboy hat to him that reads “SHK” for SOSA Henderson Killer. )

(The referee allows a moment of time to pass to allow Xander to properly get ready, the ring official passing the World Heavyweight Championship off to ringside as SOSA and Xander are ready to get this underway!)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: Xander’s clearly enjoying his attempt to get under SOSA Henderson’s skin by mocking Henderson’s mentor, Heart Break Boy, but this is something that could go either way!

Flannery McCoy: He’s definitely walking a fine line with that and I wouldn’t blame SOSA at all if he goes a step further in destroying Xander here tonight!

Jake Mercer: I don’t recall HBB ever having put on this much weight tho :lupe:

Flannery McCoy: Xander’s talking trash from across the ring and he’s laughing it up over there, degrading SOSA-

Stew-O: AND SOSA ABSOLUTELY FLOORS XANDER WITH A HUGE RIGHT HAND!!! SOSA SPRINTED OVER AND DROPPED XANDER RIGHT WHERE HE WAS AT BEFORE XANDER COULD EVEN REACT!!! XANDER GOES DOWN AND SOSA’S STOMPING ALL OVER THE CHAMPION, HOLDING ONTO THE TOP ROPE TO KEEP HIMSELF ON HIS FEET AS HE RAINS HIS BOOTS DOWN ON THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!

Jake Mercer: Xander literally just got the taste punched out of his mouth and for all we know that could prove to be a good thing – he’ll be put off from food and dropping weight is surely going to be pivotal for his next cosplay gig :wow:!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA HAS NOT STOPPED TRYING TO CAVE XANDER’S HEAD IN AFTER KNOCKING HIM FLAT ON HIS BACK AND THE REFEREE IS THERE BESIDE HIM TRYING TO CALL HIM OFF!!! SOSA ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT BE DETERRED THOUGH, CONTINUING ON EVEN AS THE RING OFFICIAL STARTS UP A COUNT! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI- SOSA BACKS AWAY, BUT XANDER ROLLS OUT THE RING UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE!

Stew-O: Xander’s on the outside trying to collect himself after the sudden flurry from SOSA Henderson just now, and he’s calling for the referee to get SOSA back, but I’m not sure what else Xander could’ve possibly been expecting with a display like the one he’s come out in!

Flannery McCoy: The former EAW World Champion obliges with the referee’s request to back up and allow Xander to properly enter the ring, but as soon as Xander starts to climb up onto the apron we see SOSA take off right at Xander! SOSA going for a kick but Xander hops off the apron just in time and reaches under the bottom rope to grab SOSA’s ankles, pulling SOSA’s legs out from under him and yanking him out to let him fall onto the arena floor with a huge thud!

Stew-O: SOSA’s already trying to get up though but Xander’s making that difficult as he starts to come down on SOSA’s back with a series of punches and clubbing strikes with his forearm, laying into him with everything he’s got as he knows he’s got a fired up SOSA Henderson on his hands!

Jake Mercer: And being caught in the hands of Xander Payne is exactly where SOSA Henderson does NOT want to be! They’re greasy, unwashed, and filthy as hell; Impact wouldn’t have stood for this :mjcry:

Flannery McCoy: You’ve gotta move on. 🙄 The referee starts up a ten-count as he watches on as Xander continues to beat SOSA- SOSA RUNS XANDER BACK INTO THE RING APRON AND DRIVES HIS KNEE UP INTO XANDER’S STOMACH! XANDER SHOUTS UPON COLLISION AND DOUBLES OVER HAVING GOTTEN ON BOTH SIDES, AND NOW SOSA GRABS XANDER BY THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AND SLAMS HIS HEAD OFF THE NEARBY RING POST!!!

Referee: ONE! TWO!

Stew-O: THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION GOES DOWN AND SOSA QUICKLY GOES TO BRING HIM UP, GIVING THE CHAMPION NO TIME TO REST AS HE BRINGS XANDER TO HIS FEET AND PROCEEDS TO LAUNCH HIM INTO THE BARRICADE!! XANDER FALLS TO THE FLOOR AND TRIES TO TURN HIMSELF OVER, ON HIS HANDS AND KNEES AS HE TRIES TO GET HIMSELF UP AND SOSA COMES CHARGING FORWARD WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKES TO THE HEAD!!!

Referee: THREE! FOUR!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA TRIES TO BLAST HIS KNEE RIGHT THROUGH XANDER’S HEAD AND TO THE BARRICADE, AS XANDER’S HEAD GETS SQUASHED BETWEEN IT AND THE GUARDRAIL!! XANDER PAYNE MIGHT BE CONCUSSED HERE IN THE EARLIER MOMENTS OF THIS MATCH!!!

Jake Mercer: It sure looks like it, as he’s seemingly been knocked the hell out! Xander fell right back down as SOSA peeled his knee away from the side of Xander’s skull and hasn’t moved an inch since, and SOSA reaches down to grab a hold of him and sends Xander into the ring! SOSA rolls in after him to stop the count and wastes no time in coming around to get his hands on Xander again, taking him up into a vertical suplex that slam the champ to the mat!

Flannery McCoy: But he doesn’t stop there as he floats over and brings Xander up to his feet while he’s still got that hold on him, launching him to the canvas once again with a snap suplex to follow up! SOSA rolls over to end up on top of Payne, coming down with those fists targeted at the face repeatedly, apparently looking to make Xander pay for the sentiment behind his gear for tonight!

Stew-O: He said he was trying to spare SOSA from fading into obscurity like his mentor but it might be Xander’s face that we end up forgetting what it looked like, because SOSA is just unrestrained on the current World Heavyweight Champion right now!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA hammers down those shots with precision and power, trying to beat Xander into unconsciousness while the referee starts to warn him about those fists! He tries to step in but SOSA just reaches back to hook the leg for a pin instead and that forces the referee out his face!

Referee: OOONNNNEEEEE!!!

Stew-O: No surprise that Xander gets his shoulder up there and SOSA isn’t shocked himself, instead bringing himself off of Xander and picking him up as he eyes the nearest corner, having Xander Payne on his feet as he runs him into the corner where he bounces his head off the top turnbuckle! SOSA’s got the crowd behind him as he does that again and Xander manages to shove him away before trying to stumble out the corner, but SOSA merely comes back to strike him over the head from behind!

Jake Mercer: Xander continues on trying to find reprieve but SOSA grabs him from behind by the neck of his shirt and throws a forearm into his back! Xander gets pushed forward into the ropes just ahead of him and stumbles back into another punch, this time getting pushed forward and going backward into a knee to the back before SOSA stomps down on the back of his knee to bring him down!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA Henderson leaps forward into a low clothesline to the base of the skull, taking Xander completely to the mat as he gets back to targeting the head and neck once again! Xander rolls away clutching at the back of his neck but SOSA is up on his feet and connects with a cruel kick to the ribs to send Xander toward the ropes where he unleashes another barrage of stomps on the down, defending champion! Xander’s aesthetics for tonight have lit a fire under SOSA Henderson and I’m sure that in that twisted mind of his he’s regretting this already!

Stew-O: Oh, I’m sure of that! SOSA’s been relentless from the opening bell and just has not let up since he threw that first punch! Xander finds himself in a supine position with his neck getting pulled out over the bottom rope, his head hanging out the ring after SOSA had stepped out the ring to bring him into position and he takes a step back as he goes to line up and springboard off the bottom rope to come down on Xander!

Flannery McCoy: BUT XANDER PAYNE ROLLS HIMSELF OUT THE WAY AND SOSA DROPPING DOWN ON THE APRON, MISSING THAT GUILLOTINE LEG DROP COMPLETELY!! That collision on the hardest part of the ring for SOSA was not what he was anticipating at all when Xander literally saved his own neck, but he starts to try to bring himself to stand anyway despite that leg obviously bothering him- BUT HE COMES UP RIGHT INTO A HEADBUTT FROM THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!!

Jake Mercer: SOSA nearly falls to the floor but manages to hang onto the top rope so that he only drops to the apron, but that only allows for Xander mercilessly yank SOSA back through the ropes and into the ring by his hair, the referee advising to let that go but Xander merely takes SOSA off his feet with him over his shoulder and dashes into the corner to drive SOSA into the turnbuckles! Xander connects with shoulder thrust after shoulder thrust, looking to wear down the fresher SOSA Henderson after SOSA spent a good portion of time laying an absolute beating on Xander!

Stew-O: Xander’s taking SOSA off his feet every time like he’s trying to trap him between the top and middle turnbuckles, aiming to demolish his challenger here tonight! The referee is right beside them and trying to shout at Xander to bring the action out of the corner, warning him that he could be disqualified only for Xander to come up to a proper vertical base to start shouting at the referee, telling him that he’s not needed here!

Referee: :usure:

Flannery McCoy: Xander turns away from the referee but immediately lands a wild slap across the face of the recovering former World Champion, BEFORE KICKING HIM IN THE GUT AND LAUNCHING HIM OUT THE CORNER WITH A WRIST CLUTCH EXPLODER SUPLEX!! SOSA GETS TAKEN RIGHT OFF HIS FEET AND GETS DROPPED ON THE CANVAS WITH AUTHORITY FROM THE CHAMP!! SOSA sits up grabbing at the back of his head BUT XANDER HOOKS UP THE ARMS FROM BEHIND AND FORCES SOSA UP TO PLANT HIM ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD WITH A NASTY FULL NELSON SUPLEX!!!

Jake Mercer: You wouldn’t think someone like Xander Payne would possess the kind of strength that he does, being built like a bean bag chair and all, but the former Biggest Loser prospect is out to surprise the world apparently :wow:!!!

Flannery McCoy: Xander Payne was not looked at to be on The Biggest Loser :skip:

Jake Mercer: He was until they realized it wasn’t in their budget to carry him around by a construction crane every episode 🤷‍♂️

Stew-O: Xander Payne’s looking to avoid being the loser of this World Heavyweight Championship match here tonight, with SOSA being thrown so hard that he ended up turning over onto his knees AND XANDER LANDS A DROPKICK TO THE FACE WITH PINPOINT ACCURACY!! SOSA gets knocked over but Xander’s already back on him, determined to stay in control of this match now that he’s finally gotten command of it, AND XANDER EASILY OVERPOWERS SOSA WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX TO PUT HIM BACK DOWN!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA finds himself face down as Xander stalks over to stomp on his back before he jumps up and comes down onto SOSA for a seated senton! All of Xander’s weight comes crashing down onto SOSA and he’s content with sitting there as he starts slapping SOSA over the back of his head, taunting and antagonizing SOSA, who tries to cover up but it’s pointless as Xander redirects his attention to raise up into a knee drop right to the middle of the back!

Jake Mercer: Xander’s got a smirk on his face as he’s enjoying this now, strolling around to face SOSA and kneeling down in front of him to talk a whole bunch of trash while SOSA’s recovering- CORRECTION: BAITING XANDER INTO GETTING CLOSER BEFORE POPPING IN THE FACE WITH A PUNCH! XANDER’S HEAD CRACKS BACK AND SOSA STRIKES AGAIN! SOSA COMING UP ONTO HIS KNEES AS HE STARTS DISHING OUT FOREARMS AND FIGHTING HIS WAY UP TO THIS FEET!

Stew-O: SOSA SHOWING THAT HE’S STILL IN THIS AS HE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION AND SWINGS AT XANDER UNTIL THEY’RE BOTH COMPLETELY UP ON THEIR FEET! SOSA REELS BACK AND SHOOTS FORWARD- XANDER DUCKS UNDER IT AND SOSA, GETTING HIM UP OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND INTO POSITION! A BRUTAL BACK-TO-BELLY PILEDRIVER BURIES SOSA HENDERSON UNDER XANDER, WHO STAYS ON FOR THE COVER!!!

Referee: OOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA with the kick out and fortunately for him, I’m sure he’s still got plenty more in to give to this match-up! After all the criticizing he did throughout the week of whether or not Xander Payne was fit to reign as the World Heavyweight Champion, putting that to the test against SOSA is definitely going to help everyone else find out if that’s true or not!

Stew-O: Xander initially tried to reject SOSA’s demands for a World Title match here at Operation: Doomsday, but once agreed to and now here, one of them is going to find that taking this chance isn’t going to have worked out in the end! And Xander looks to make sure it’s SOSA left with that realization as he comes off the former World Champion and brings him to stand on unsteady legs, cupping SOSA’s chin and still talking down to him before kicking him in the stomach with such force that he’s taken down to a knee!

Jake Mercer: But Xander isn’t done running his mouth as he stands over SOSA and grabs his chin again, forcing him up and he’s in Henderson’s face, but surely Xander’s breath has to warrant a disqualification ruling 🤢

Flannery McCoy: There’s no such reprieve as Xander shouts at SOSA to stay down but SOSA shows exactly why that’s not happening anytime soon as he pushes himself back and lands a forearm to Xander’s face! Xander fires back with one of his own but SOSA stays on his feet and clocks Xander with a return strike! Xander fires off two at SOSA but SOSA starts launching himself at Xander until they’re back against the ropes, SOSA is all over the champion right now!

Stew-O: But not for long as Xander whips him across the ring and SOSA comes rebounding off those ropes to a bent over Xander, ONLY FOR SOSA TO FLIP OVER THE REIGNING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION AND TAKE THE BACK OF HIS HEAD TO THE MAT WITH A RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER!!

Flannery McCoy: XANDER RUSHES TO GET UP TO HIS FEET AS HE REALIZES HIS ANTICIPATION WAS OFF, ONLY FOR HIM TO RISE UP INTO AN ONSLAUGHT OF CHOPS AND KICKS FROM THE CHALLENGER! SOSA CRACKING XANDER ACROSS THE CHEST AND THEN KICKING HIM IN THE GUT BEFORE LANDING A STANDING DROPKICK TO KNOCK XANDER BACK, THE CHAMPION FALLING OVER IN THE CORNER!

Jake Mercer: AND SOSA HENDERSON BARRELS INTO THE CORNER, STRIKING WITH A METEORA AS XANDER IS SEATED AGAINST THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE! XANDER PAYNE’S HEAD SNAPS BACK AND SOSA GETS A GRIP ON THE TOP ROPE, BOUNCING OFF THE BOTTOM CABLE AND DRIVING TWO BOOTS TO THE CHEST OF XANDER IN A PENDULUM-STYLED DROPKICK THAT SURELY KNOCKED ALL THE WIND OUT OF THE CHAMPION!!

Stew-O: SOSA gets to his feet and goes to grab Xander, picking him up from out of the corner in an inverted facelock where he takes them back the middle of the ring, and SOSA looks to show off as he lifts Xander up- BUT XANDER USES THE MOMENTUM TO GO OVER SOSA’S SHOULDER AND END UP BEHIND HIM! XANDER LANDING ON HIS FEET AND HE TAKES THE FORMER EAW WORLD CHAMPION DOWN WITH A RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP! THE BACK OF SOSA’S HEAD SMACKS AGAINST THE CANVAS AND XANDER KILLS THAT COMEBACK SOSA LOOKED TO MAKE!

Flannery McCoy: And from the looks of things, he didn’t appreciate SOSA being in a position of being ready to shine in the moment at his expense! Regardless of what he says, Xander Payne has definitely underestimated SOSA Henderson going into this and that moment for SOSA certainly showed it!

Jake Mercer: But Xander was quick to get back on the right side of things, and I haven’t seen him move that fast since that time I saw him bulldoze Ximena Valeaquez out the way in catering when she was about to get the last piece of cake!

Flannery McCoy: That literally never happened :skip:

Jake Mercer: Does that look like a man who’s ever missed a meal? :usure:

Flannery McCoy: You’re gonna look like a man who’s out of a job if you don’t get it together and stop spreading totally wrong, totally fake information :mjpls:

Jake Mercer: I’m the star of Dynasty, they can’t get rid of me 💅

Stew-O: Xander looks make a step further in getting rid of SOSA Henderson from this fight as he’s finally done showboating, finally done being so careless and he gets back on the attack by wrapping SOSA up in a side headlock, keeping SOSA’s head down while throwing punches up at his face! SOSA tries to push off but Xander’s got him trapped and it’s completely disorienting for SOSA to not even be able to see where he’s at while Xander’s trying to rearrange his face!

Flannery McCoy: AND JUST AS THE REFEREE WAS COMING IN CLOSER TO CHECK THOSE STRIKES, XANDER’S FIST CONNECTS HEAVILY JUST AS HE RELEASES SOSA HENDERSON FROM HIS HOLD! SOSA turns on his heels covering his face, BUT XANDER JUST TAKES THE OPPORTUNITY TO DUCK DOWN AND LIFT SOSA UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, TAKING HIM TO THE CORNER FOR AN INVERTED ALABAMA SLAM TO SEND SOSA FACE FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!!

Jake Mercer: A DISGUSTING SIGHT TO WITNESS, AS SOSA’S HEAD SNAPPED BACK AS SOON HE STRUCK THE TURNBUCKLE AND WAS LEFT TO FALL INTO A CRUMPLED HEAP; SOSA HENDERSON IS OUT!!

Stew-O: But Xander isn’t done as he follows up into the corner with a series of kicks and stomps, SOSA not even conscious enough to try to cover up and if left to take that attack from Xander! Xander with his boot shoved just under SOSA’s chin and choking him as he’s got his foot on his throat, making it harder to breathe! He finally pulls away at a count of four and talks back to the referee before going back after SOSA, lifting him up onto the top turnbuckle!

Flannery McCoy: Xander starts climbing up after him but SOSA reaches down and punches Xander over the top of his head! Xander won’t be deterred though as he tries to go up anyway, trying to throw a shot but SOSA has the overhead advantage, coming down on Xander with another blow! That one stalls Xander as he tries to maintain his footing but SOSA shoves him backward, Xander managing to stay on his feet back on the mat while SOSA goes to stand up top-

Jake Mercer: BUT XANDER MAKES A RUSH FORWARD TO SWEEP SOSA’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM AND SOSA COMES DOWN SPLIT-LEGGED ON THE BAR BEHIND THE BUCKLE!! SOSA LOOKS READY TO COLLAPSE FORWARD INTO THE RING BUT XANDER GRABS HIS HEAD TO KEEP HIM UP AND LANDS A FOREARM TO THE FACE! XANDER SEES HIS OPPORTUNITY TO STRIKE AND I BELIEVE HE’S GONNA TAKE IT!

Stew-O: Xander climbs up the turnbuckles while clobbering SOSA over and over and over again on the way up, Xander getting to the top rope and pulling SOSA up with him! XANDER HOISTS SOSA UP AND TOSSES HIM OVERHEAD FOR A SUPERPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE!!! THE TWO ELITISTS HIT THE MAT AND XANDER COMES FLOATING OVER WITH HIS GRIP STILL ON SOSA!! XANDER PAYNE FOLLOWS THROUGH WITH A FLOAT OVER INTO A FALCON ARROW!!! XANDER PAYNE DRIVES SOSA TO THE MAT TO RATTLE THE RING AND HE HOLDS HIM FOR THE COVER!!!

Referee: OOONNNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTTTHHHHH-

Jake Mercer: SOSA’S SHOULDER SHOOTS UP OFF THE MAT BUT XANDER IMMEDIATELY STARTS ATTACKING SOSA, GROWING MORE FED UP WITH THE FIGHT STILL IN HIS OPPONENT!

Flannery McCoy: These two have cost each other matches, called each other incapable, talked their trash and made things personal – I’m not surprised to see this side of Xander coming out at all!

Stew-O: As the man who’s been the World Heavyweight Champion since April of this year, defended over Charlie Marr and Impact to get to this point, Xander Payne has come a long way over the past few months as he’s worked to establish himself as the World Champion here on Dynasty and carrying that over into Season 15 hasn’t changed!

Flannery McCoy: Xander relents and comes away from SOSA but Xander’s got the referee in his face, reprimanding him while SOSA’s still down and a shot of SOSA just now showed that he’s got a bloody nose! No doubt from when he took that turnbuckle to the face and he’s struggling to even get up right now!

Jake Mercer: SOSA’s been in bigger trouble than this, I can assure you, and he’s prevailed! His time spent competing in Japan in the underground of the Roppongi district has readied him for a moment like this!

Stew-O: Because that definitely doesn’t sound suspicious at all :mjpls:

Jake Mercer: There then is also of course how last season, he won the EAW World Championship from Rex McAllister :wow:!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA makes it to the ropes, wiping away blood from his face and he starts bring himself up but it’s Xander who’s coming from behind as the referee is trying to check in on SOSA, Xander grabbing SOSA and trying to pull him away from the ropes but SOSA’s holding on to them to keep himself from going anywhere!

Stew-O: Xander throws punches to SOSA’s side to try to get him to loosen that grip- but SOSA catches the World Heavyweight Champion with a back elbow to the face! Xander’s stunned and SOSA senses the opportunity to strike again and does just that! SOSA strikes a third time and Xander is knocked back and SOSA whirls around to see Xander lunging at him-

Jake Mercer: SOSA HENDERSON DUCKS AND CONNECTS WITH A KNEE LIFT TO THE STOMACH! XANDER DOUBLES OVER AND SOSA BLASTS HIM WITH A FOREARM BEFORE HITTING A SWIFT UPPERCUT TO HAVE XANDER STUMBLING! SOSA LANDING A KICK TO THE KNEE TO TAKE A LEG OUT FROM UNDER HIM AND A HUGE SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD NEARLY DECAPITATES XANDER RIGHT THERE IN THE RING!!!

Flannery McCoy: BUT SOSA SEES XANDER ALREADY TRYING TO GET BACK UP AND HE PULLS HIM UP INTO A HEADLOCK, LANDING STRIKES ACROSS THE BACK BEFORE WHIPPING HIM ACROSS THE RING AND XANDER SPRINGS BACK INTO A CHARGING SOSA! SOSA LEAPS AND TAKES XANDER DOWN WITH A JUMPING LEG LARIAT, HIS LEG COMING DOWN ACROSS THE NECK OF THE CHAMPION AS THEY HIT THE MAT!!!

Stew-O: DESPITE HAVING JUST GOTTEN TAKEN DOWN, XANDER’S MOVING WITH HASTE TO GET UP BUT GETS A SPINNING SIDE KICK FOR HIS EFFORTS! Xander’s stopped in his tracks and SOSA looks to take off- Xander catches him around the waist before he can get away, having SOSA from behind before he lifts him up just for SOSA to land on his feet behind him! Xander turns to find him but SOSA runs right past him JUMPING ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE AND SPRINGBOARDING BACKWARD ONTO THE ONCOMING XANDER’S SHOULDERS!!! A SPRINGBOARD POISON FRANKENSTEINER!!!

Jake Mercer: XANDER GETS SPIKED RIGHT ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD AND HE’S FLOORED!!! SOSA SEES THE OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP HIS NEWLY FOUND MOMENTUM ROLLING AND GOES RUNNING TO THE ROPES AGAIN, BOUNCING OFF INTO A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT DOUBLE KNEE DROP RIGHT ONTO XANDER’S BACK!!!! SOSA NOW TURNING XANDER OVER INTO THE COVER!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTTTTHHHHHHRRRR-

Flannery McCoy: Xander’s shoulder pops up just in time, but now SOSA has to maintain this moment that he’s created for himself and he knows that! SOSA knows that he could be closing in on his second World Championship here in EAW, and to have it be almost a year since he defeated Rex, it’d mean a whole hell of a lot for him to have gone through all he has in life and get that top spot again!

Stew-O: SOSA Henderson certainly carried himself as a World Champion that took no shit, knew how to push buttons, and definitely wasn’t the type to spare anyone’s feelings – we could be witnessing SOSA’s return to all of that right here!

Jake Mercer: SOSA grabs the World Heavyweight Champion and drags him over to the ropes, sitting him up against them before running across the ring and charging right at Xander, who rolls out the ring to avoid whatever the hell was coming next! SOSA slingshots out onto the apron and Xander quickly attempts to sweep the legs but SOSA hops over Xander’s hands and turns, LEAPING OFF AT XANDER FOR A METEORA!!!

Stew-O: BUT XANDER DUCKS DOWN AND SOSA FLIES OFF TO THE FLOOR, ROLLING THROUGH HIS MOMENTUM TO GET TO HIS FEET- “OVERDOSE”!!! THE DISCUS PALM STRIKE CATCHES SOSA AND SPLATTERS HIS BLOOD ACROSS HIS FACE!!! SOSA stumbling backward as Xander aims to follow up! “AFTER HOURS”!!! A SAITO SUPLEX RIGHT ON THE FLOOR AND SOSA’S LAID OUT ON THE GROUND!!

Flannery McCoy: AND XANDER ISN’T LETTING THIS CHANCE GET AWAY FROM HIM, PICKING SOSA UP AND ROLLING HIM INTO THE RING WHERE HE MAKES THE COVER!!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTTHHHHHHHRRRRE-

Flannery McCoy: SOSA’s chances of becoming World Heavyweight Champion stay alive as he kicks out, much to the apparent annoyance of Xander Payne!

Stew-O: SOSA specifically called his shot against Xander Payne and it should come as no surprise to anyone that SOSA’s going to fight with everything he has to keep himself in this for the long haul! Xander tried to duck this match and now he’s finding out exactly why SOSA pushed for this the way he did – SOSA knew he’d be able to go far in this match!

Jake Mercer: Well, he’s not going anywhere currently and Xander Payne has made sure of that, putting those aspirations on hold from the way things look!

Stew-O: Xander is up to his feet and he has SOSA up on his knees, Payne eyeing a corner of the ring before he tosses SOSA in that direction, letting him hit the mat without even reaching completely all the way over! SOSA looks to be in some trouble and he surely recognizes that as he finds the ropes in the corner while Xander makes his way over into the opposite corner, getting himself set to take off! SOSA pulls himself up to his feet and Xander takes off in a sprint!

Flannery McCoy: JUST TO GO SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE POST!! SOSA PULLED HIMSELF OUT THE WAY AND XANDER SHOT RIGHT THROUGH THE TURNBUCKLES!! SOSA AVOIDS GETTING HIT AND XANDER IS TOO STUNNED TO EVEN MOVE!!!

Jake Mercer: SOSA sure isn’t as he goes out onto the apron and grabs the arm, twisting it, AND THEN LEAPING DOWN FROM THE APRON AS HE SLAMS XANDER’S ARM INTO THE RING POST!!! XANDER SHOUTS OUT AS THE AUDIBLE COLLISION CAN BE HEARD THROUGHOUT TROPICANA FIELD!!

Stew-O: AND NOW SOSA GRABS THE ARM AGAIN AND PULLS IT FORWARD WHILE HE’S GOT HIS FOOT PRESSED TO THE POST, ALMOST LIKE HE’S TRYING TO PULL THE ARM RIGHT OUT OF ITS SOCKET!!! XANDER CAN’T REACH AROUND TO TRY TO HIT HIM OFF AND THE REFEREE WATCHES ON, SHOUTING WARNINGS BEFORE HE STARTS A COUNT AND SOSA BREAKS BEFORE FIVE!!

Flannery McCoy: Xander’s arm is just hanging there after that as Xander has yet to move and SOSA climbs up onto the apron, RUNNING FORWARD AND KICKING THE ARM INTO THE POST CAUSING IT TO ABSORB ALL THE POSSIBLE DAMAGE THAT COULD BE DONE!! XANDER TURNS OVER BETWEEN THE TURNBUCKLES AND FALLS OUT, HITTING OFF THE APRON AND GOING DOWN TO THE FLOOR!!!

Stew-O: SOSA walks the apron and goes around the post, hopping down next to Xander while he’s in the process of trying to get himself up and he goes to pick him up, bringing him from the ground and running him back into the barricade! Xander goes down to a knee and SOSA starts bombarding him with knee strikes while he’s got him down!

Jake Mercer: SOSA is ruthless as he knows he’s got Xander in a weakened state and he’s doing everything to keep his advantage! SOSA hasn’t let up since he targeted the arm and he knows that this could spell the end for Xander’s reign here tonight; after everything, it’s undeniable that he’d love to be the one to shut Xander up!

Flannery McCoy: The former EAW World Champion gets Xander up from the ground- BUT XANDER SENSES THE URGENCY OF THE STATE HE’S IN AND POWERS THROUGH, RUNNING SOSA BACK INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! SOSA’S TAKEN A GOOD PORTION OF XANDER’S OFFENSE TO HIS BACK AND GETTING HIT WITH THE STEPS ISN’T GOING TO DO HIM ANY FAVORS AT ALL!!!

Stew-O: SOSA drops down and the referee is counting as a warning to try to bring them back into the ring, but neither man is trying to do so as Xander is merely crawling away from SOSA while SOSA’s beside the steps! Xander makes it to the barricade and gets himself up while SOSA is grabbing at his own back in blatant pain and Xander manages to get himself up to his feet- HE TURNS AND TAKES OFF AT SOSA!! XANDER CATCHING SPEED AS HE CHARGES AT SOSA BY THE STEPS!!!

Jake Mercer: “HEATWAVE” CANNONBALL MISSES AS SOSA MOVES OUT THE WAY AND XANDER CRASHES INTO THE STEPS!!! SOSA GOT HIMSELF OUT THE WAY IN TIME AND XANDER CANNONBALLS RIGHT INTO THE STEPS!!! HE’S GOT HIMSELF STUCK UPSIDE DOWN WITH HIS LEGS OVER HIS HEAD AND SOSA’S UP ON HIS FEET, STOMPING AND KICKING XANDER IN THAT VULNERABLE POSITION!!!

Stew-O: SOSA GRABS THE NEAREST LEG AND PULLS IT TO TURN XANDER OVER, XANDER ENDING UP ON HIS KNEES AND SOSA HITS A SHOOT KICK RIGHT TO THE FACE!!! XANDER GETS LAID OUT AND SOSA GETS HIM OFF THE GROUND, ROLLING HIM INTO THE RING BEFORE GETTING UP ONTO THE APRON HIMSELF! SOSA SLINGSHOTTING INTO THE RING FOR A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP- NO! XANDER JUST MANAGES TO PULL HIMSELF OUT THE WAY WITH THE BOTTOM ROPE!!

Jake Mercer: But SOSA stays on his feet and reaches down to grab Xander, landing forearm shots to the head as he’s getting him up- Xander pushes him away once he’s up and launches forward for a huge lariat! BUT SOSA DUCKS UNDER IT AND RUNS FORWARD, HITTING OFF THE ROPES JUST AS XANDER TURNS AROUND!!

Flannery McCoy: SSSSPPPPPEEEEEAAAAAARRRR!!! SOSA COMES RUNNING OFF THE ROPES WITH ALL THAT EXTRA MOMENTUM AND HE HITS A HUGE SPEAR TO TAKE XANDER DOWN!!! AND NOW SOSA PINS THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWWWWOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTTTHHHHHHRRRRREEEEEE!!!!

Stew-O: XANDER PAYNE KICKS OUT TO KEEP HIS WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE REIGN ALIVE!!

Jake Mercer: Xander having the wherewithal to try to make that comeback after SOSA stayed after him the way that he was was impressive, but take nothing away from SOSA as he found an opening to exploit the World Heavyweight Champion with and it’s exactly why he could be walking away with his second World Title!

Stew-O: SOSA sits up from that pin and shakes his head, but he’s not wearing a look of surprise as a part of him seemingly anticipated a kick out! The former World Champion from last season gets himself up and he’s got his hands on Xander Payne in the process, returning all the trash talking from Xander earlier in the match with some of his own and that disrespectful slap over the back of the head is SOSA’s attitude shining through! SOSA now shoving Xander’s head down repeatedly every time Xander tries to raise himself up, giving Xander a taste of his own medicine BEFORE UNLEASHING A NASTY SMACK ACROSS THE FACE AND XANDER’S FACE IS ALREADY TURNING RED!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA’s taunting Xander and telling him to get up just for SOSA to shove him down, and Xander’s trying harder to get himself up off his knees as SOSA’s made it difficult for him to do so. Xander trying to push him away before striking with a punch to the stomach but SOSA just comes down with an elbow on the top of his head!

Jake Mercer: The challenger gets the champion up and begins rattling Xander with forearm shots before whipping him across the ring- Xander doesn’t come back on the rebound as expected after hooking his arms around the top rope to stop his momentum! SOSA realizes this and takes off at Xander, BUT SOSA GETS POPPED OUT ONTO THE APRON!! Xander turns around and goes to swing but SOSA ducks down and hits a shoulder thrust through the ropes! Xander doubles over and SOSA slingshots over into a sunset flip- NO! XANDER DROPS DOWN ON TOP OF SOSA AND REACHES BACK TO HOOK THE LEGS!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNNEEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTTTTHHHHHHHRRRR-

Stew-O: NO! SOSA MANAGES TO TAKE HIM DOWN TO THE MAT, GETTING THE PIN!!!

Referee: OOOOONNNNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOO!!!!

Flannery McCoy: XANDER SHOOTS HIS LEGS OUT AND KICKS SOSA IN THE FACE TO BREAK THE PIN!! Xander turns to get himself up and SOSA does the same, both of them wanting to be the first one up for the advantage and it’s Xander who’s up! Xander making his way over to SOSA, WHO PULLS XANDER’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM AND TRIES TO STEP OVER INTO THE SHARPSHOOTER BUT XANDER’S WRIGGLING ON THE MAT ALREADY TRYING TO GET OUT!!

Stew-O: Xander tries to turn himself to the ropes but SOSA’s trying to keep him from turning them around, SOSA still having a hold of the legs before stomping down on the midsection of the World Heavyweight Champion to keep him still! SOSA going to tie the legs up- BUT AS HE WAS DOING SO, XANDER MANAGES TO PULL HIM DOWN INTO A SMALL PACKAGE PIN ATTEMPT!!!

Referee: OOOOONNNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOO!!!

Jake Mercer: A break is forced as SOSA kicks out in time and breaking out of the pin, SOSA manages to get up first to go after the rising Xander, AND XANDER TAKES SOSA UP INTO THE AIR AND DOWN TO THE CANVAS FOR A SURPRISE “PARASITE EVE” BLUE THUNDER BOMB!!!

Stew-O: SOSA IS LAID OUT ON THE MAT AFTER THAT BUT XANDER PAYNE ISN’T MAKING THE COVER!! Xander is going to make sure that there’s no doubt that he’ll be able to put away SOSA soon enough and he rises up, grabbing SOSA and sending him out through the ropes and to the floor below! Xander follows after him and he grabs him from the ground, THROWING HIM INTO THE CORNER OF THE BARRICADE!!!

Jake Mercer: Xander stalks after him as he’s down on the ground trying to get himself up, but Xander hits a kick to the ribs before SOSA can do anything to make a move! SOSA gets knocked back against the barricade and Xander comes to hoist him up to prop him on the barricade, SOSA sitting there groggily as Xander taunts the fans-

Stew-O: AND GETS A KICK TO THE FACE FROM SOSA TO KNOCK HIM BACK!! Xander tries to immediately get back the upper hand but SOSA comes down from the barricade and hammers at Payne with punches, the referee inside the ring counting!

Referee: ONE!

Flannery McCoy: Xander once again thought he had SOSA right where he wanted him but thought ahead just a little too soon! SOSA knows he’s got to fight back into this match and he’s doing just that after Xander got overconfident, leaving himself wide open to this attack from SOSA! SOSA making this comeback by battering Xander back to the ring apron and Xander pushes him away and goes to get up onto the apron, but SOSA isn’t gonna allow him any room and he quickly goes to follow him up onto the apron!

Referee: TWO! THREE!

Stew-O: SOSA slugs out a huge right hand as the two of them are out up on the apron, but Xander strikes back and that’s one that has SOSA stumbling back as he gets hit harder than anticipated! Xander follows after him to try to keep the momentum on his side but SOSA lands a kick to the midsection to double Xander over and he pulls Xander in looking for a suplex out there on the apron!

Jake Mercer: NO! Xander wriggles his way back down before SOSA can lift him completely overhead and Xander’s back on his feet! Xander throws up knee strikes at SOSA while they’re both bent down, managing to free himself and Xander LANDS A KICK TO THE CHEST TO KNOCK SOSA BACK INTO THE RING POST! SOSA GRABBING THE ROPE JUST IN TIME TO KEEP HIMSELF FROM FALLING OVER!

Referee: FOUR! FIVE!

Flannery McCoy: BUT HERE COMES XANDER AS HE RUSHES FORWARD AND GETS SOSA WITH A BRUTAL KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! XANDER NOW PULLING SOSA DOWN AND- WAIT! NO! NO! NO! NO!

Stew-O: “PAYNEKILLER” ONTO THE STEPS JUST THERE AT THE POST!!! XANDER HITS THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER ON THE STEPS AND EVEN THE REFEREE STOPPED HIS COUNT OUT OF THE PURE SHOCK!! SOSA TUMBLES DOWN FROM THE STEPS AFTER GETTING DROPPED HEAD FIRST ONTO THEM, FALLING OFF TO THE SIDE AS DOES XANDER ONTO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STEPS AS XANDER RELEASED HIM UPON IMPACT!!!

Jake Mercer: XANDER MADE SURE THAT HE’D BE ABLE TO END THIS AND SOSA’S GOT TO BE CONCUSSED OUT OF HIS MIND!!!

Flannery McCoy: Xander pulls himself up from his side of the steps with the help of them, climbing over them to get the knocked out SOSA and he peels him from off the ground, rolling him into the ring! Xander pushes him away from the ropes and makes the cover!!!

Referee: OOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHRRRRREEEEE!!!

Stew-O: SOSA HENDERSON KICKS OUT!!!!

Jake Mercer: After that, I have no idea where SOSA pulled that kind of willpower from, but SOSA isn’t ready to let this one go!

Stew-O: Xander’s having to shake off the blatant disbelief as he was sure that SOSA had to be completely out of this and yet, he’s got to put up with SOSA staying in this fight that Xander didn’t even initially want with him! With it dragging out this far, that reason’s changed now for a completely different reason and that’s SOSA’s obvious resilience and determination to become a two-time World Champion at his expense!

Flannery McCoy: Xander gets up to his feet talking to the ring official who assures him that SOSA did indeed kick out before three and Xander shakes his head frustrated, in disbelief that this is still going! He turns and looks down at the bloody SOSA Henderson, nothing but disdain for the challenger on his face before roughly dragging SOSA up to his feet!

Stew-O: Xander sends him flying across the ring with a belly-to-belly overhead toss and SOSA understandably just comes crashing down to the mat! The former EAW World Champion is looking worse for wear but somewhere in there is a fight to capture the World Championship that he’d been unable to before. But of course, Xander’s looking to make that no easy task!

Jake Mercer: Xander goes to grab him and getting SOSA up onto his feet, Xander raises him up and slams him down with a hammerlock scoop slam to send SOSA crashing down on his own arm! SOSA tries to turn himself over but Xander is there to get him, focusing on that arm with an arm wringing and landing kicks to the midsection as he uses the arm to keep his distance while SOSA’s hardly able to block those oncoming hits!

Flannery McCoy: And it’s a precarious position to be in for SOSA as Xander will absolutely take advantage of something like, pulling him in now for a SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE THAT TURNS SOSA INSIDE OUT IN MID-AIR TO PUT HIM BACK DOWN TO THE MAT!! Xander looks to be enjoying himself in the moment and that’s got to spell trouble for SOSA, as he’s down on the mat recovering at Xander’s feet.

Stew-O: Xander kicks him over and yanks him up, pulling him into a knee lift to the stomach before clasping his hands around SOSA’s head and delivering repeated knee strikes over and over knowing that he’s surely going to disorient the challenger! SOSA’s forced to take those hits head-on, literally, before Xander sweeps him off his feet into a kneeling backbreaker on the edge of his knee, bringing Henderson down right on the joint!

Jake Mercer: SOSA rolls on the mat clutching at his back and it shows on his face just what kind of pain he’s in, but knowing SOSA, he’ll try to fight through every bit of it! Unfortunately for him though, Xander isn’t satisfied as he comes down his back and pulls his arms back to set up a camel clutch! Xander pulling back on the chin and with those situated like that, SOSA’s going to struggle trying to get out of this!

Flannery McCoy: It certainly doesn’t help when someone like Xander is punching you in the face and making it just that much worse, just that much harder to breathe get a sense of what to do – and he knows that with someone like SOSA, he’ll have to do everything to keep him grounded!

Stew-O: SOSA shouts out trying somehow to shift free but Xander is leaning down, yelling in his face to quit and give up, but even he knows SOSA won’t tap out now and not like this! That’s got to be the reason for the smirk on his face but SOSA’s continuing to fight! SOSA trying to move somehow and he gets an arm free!

Jake Mercer: SOSA starts elbowing the closest leg and punching the other, hoping to free himself up and Xander’s trying to keep him still, but SOSA manages to get the other arm out! Xander starts frantically coming down over the back of SOSA’s head with punches and forearms, brutal shots to be taking and not able to defend yourself, but SOSA is working through it all!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA starting to get out from under Xander as Xander tries to maintain the advantage but he knows he’s not gonna get it! XANDER QUICKLY COMING OFF OF SOSA’S BACK AND GOING INTO A JUMPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO DRIVE SOSA DOWN TO THE CANVAS!! XANDER STAYS ON HIS FEET AND DEADLIFTS SOSA UP, HITTING AN INVERTED ATOMIC DROP THAT POPS SOSA FORWARD BUT XANDER QUICKLY SNATCHES HIM UP FOR A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX TO TOSS HIM ACROSS THE RING!!!

Stew-O: SOSA GOES FLYING AND COLLAPSES FAR FROM XANDER AFTER CRASHING DOWN ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!!! And Xander sits up with a grin, knowing he’s in full control and he turns over to spot SOSA still on that, unmvoing.

Jake Mercer: But Xander is standing far across the ring from SOSA, not even trying to close the space between while SOSA has yet to move from where he landed on the mat! Xander stomps his foot down on the mat as he calls for SOSA to get up and he stomps his foot again, and SOSA begins to stir across the ring as Xander anticipates him from his side of the ring!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA’s just barely able to bring himself up and Xander’s getting impatient as he watches on, obviously having something planned here! Xander shouts out that he’s gonna finish SOSA’s career to go out like Heart Break Boy’s and I don’t like where this is going :lupe:!!

Jake Mercer: SOSA gets himself up to his feet as unsteady as he is with back to Xander, AND XANDER TAKES OFF AT SOSA FOR PATENTED SUPERKICK OF HBB’S!!! THE GOLDPRINT!!!

Stew-O: SOSA HENDERSON CATCHES THE FOOT BEFORE HE CAN CONNECT!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA Henderson has Xander Payne hopping around one leg, trying to get him to put it down or swinging at SOSA but SOSA is out of reach! Embarrassed or frustrated, I can’t tell but Xander knows he’s in trouble! AND SOSA JERKS THE LEG FORWARD AND THAT SENDS XANDER FALLING DOWN ONTO HIS BACK, SOSA POUNCING ON HIM AND HE STARTS UNLOADING WITH PUNCH AFTER PUNCH AFTER PUNCH!!! HE’S NOT LETTING THAT DISRESPECT GO UNPUNISHED!!!

Stew-O: XANDER’S HAVING A HARD TIME COVERING UP AS SOSA’S NOT GIVING HIM ANY ROOM TO BREATHE!! SOSA RAINING DOWN THE SHOTS AND XANDER’S STUCK UNDER HIM, UNABLE TO GET SOSA OFF OF HIM!!!

Jake Mercer: SOSA FINALLY COMES UP AND HE’S GOT XANDER WITH HIM, SOSA HAS XANDER UP ON HIS FEET AND HE JABS IN THE FACE WITH A PUNCH! XANDER FLAILS WILDLY TRYING TO DEFEND HIMSELF BUT SOSA’S COMING AT HIM WAY TOO FAST! SOSA CATCHING A WIND HERE AS HE JABS THE CHAMPION AGAIN BEFORE SHOOTING FORWARD AND LANDING A PERFECT ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!

Flannery McCoy: XANDER FALLS OVER AGAINST THE ROPES AND SOSA TAKES OFF CHARGING IN THAT DIRECTION! SOSA GOING FOR A TIGER FEINT KICK- NO! XANDER DUCKS DOWN AND ROLLS OUT THE RING, AVOIDING GETTING STRUCK BY WHAT COULD’VE BEEN A CHAIN OF MOVES TO FOLLOW!

Stew-O: But the agile SOSA Henderson merely turns his way back out onto the apron, Xander out on the floor anticipating him but SOSA sees him coming, kicking him right in the face! Xander merely stumbles BUT SOSA STRIKES WITH A FOOTBALL KICK FROM THE APRON AND THAT TAKES XANDER DOWN COMPLETELY THIS TIME, SOSA STILL UP ON THE APRON!!! SOSA moving to the corner and going to the turnbuckles, climbing up while still facing Xander who’s moving to get himself up! SOSA going all the way up top and Xander’s got hold of the apron skirt to get to his feet!

Jake Mercer: And SOSA goes a step further, stepping out onto the top of the ring post! Xander’s up on his feet and turns to find SOSA! AND SOSA LAUNCHES HIMSELF OFF THE TOP AND HE COMES PLUMMETING DOWN ONTO XANDER IN A DIVING CROSSBODY OFF THE POST!!! SOSA HENDERSON TAKES XANDER DOWN TO THE GROUND AND THE TWO OF THEM HIT WITH A SICKENING THUD OUT HERE IN FRONT OF US!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA HENDERSON TAKING A BIG CHANCE THERE AND IT PAYS OFF AS HE GETS ALL OF THAT, PRACTICALLY TRYING TO SQUASH THE CHAMPION HERE ON THE OUTSIDE!!!

Stew-O: SOSA is rolling on the ground clutching his ribs but there’s no doubt that Xander got the worst of it! And SOSA somehow manages to drag himself up to his feet with the help of our commentary table and he stumbles his way over Xander, picking him up AND LAUNCHING HIM INTO THE FRONT OF THE TABLE HERE!! XANDER FALLS TO THE GROUND AND SOSA’S COMING BACK AFTER HIM AGAIN!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA PICKING UP XANDER AND SENDING HIM INTO THE APRON WITH A SUPLEX, LETTING HIM FALL AND THEN HAULING XANDER UP TO ROLL HIM INTO THE RING!!! XANDER COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF HIS SURROUNDINGS AS SOSA ROLLS IN AFTER HIM!! SOSA WITH A RUNNING START!!1

Jake Mercer: “PAID IN FULL”!!! SOSA HENDERSON CONNECTS WITH THE CURBSTOMP ON XANDER, CRUSHING HIS FACE AGAINST THE MAT!!! XANDER IS LAID OUT ON THE MAT AND SOSA FALLS DOWN, TURNING HIM OVER AND HOOKING THE LEG!!!!

Referee: OOOOONNNNNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!

Jake Mercer: A NEW CHAMPION!!!

Flannery McCoy: NO! XANDER KICKED JUST BEFORE THREE AND SOSA TURNS OFF OF HIM, HANDS TO HIS FACE IN DISBELIEF!!!

Stew-O: SOSA made a huge comeback and now he’s finding out what the World Heavyweight Championship means for Xander! But he knows he can’t get discouraged, and that he has to stay on Xander for every second that he can throughout the rest of this match!

Jaker Mercer: That’s easy to say but tougher to do as you can see SOSA impatiently slapping the mat while somehow containing what’s left of his composure; he’s definitely frustrated knowing he threw one of his best shots only for Xander to kick out!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA grabs Xander by an arm and a leg to start dragging him from the middle to the ring and closer to the ropes, where SOSA then proceeds to step out onto the apron. An exhausted and worn SOSA drops to his knees on the apron but pulls himself along to the corner before he gets to his feet to begin to climb and he’s going up top again!

Stew-O: SOSA’s understandably taking his time, face smeared with blood as he aims to go to the top turnbuckle- but Xander Payne and his own busted nose start to shift out of place! SOSA shakes his head in frustration seeing that he took too long and comes back down into the ring, making his way over to the trudging Xander before stomping down on his back!

Jake Mercer: SOSA keeps him from going anywhere as he reaches down to get him in a side headlock, opting to keep Xander close as he comes down on the top of Xander’s head with some heavy hits, the sound of those punches being picked up by the ring mics! SOSA has him right here he needs to and that’s right next to him, not allowing him to get away!

Flannery McCoy: Henderson moves him to the corner and lifts him up onto the top turnbuckle after beating him down in the corner, set to bring him up with him this time! SOSA throws punches on the way up and goes to stand on the top turnbuckle, getting Xander to stand up with him in that precarious position!

Stew-O: SOSA getting in a few more hits before he hooks Xander up! LOOKING TO BE A SPANISH FLY FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!!

Jake Mercer: BUT XANDER STARTS ELBOWING SOSA ON THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD TRYING TO FIGHT HIM OFF!!! SOSA TRYING TO MAINTAIN THE HOLD BUT XANDER’S DESPERATE TO GET OUT OF THIS!!! XANDER THROWING MORE ELBOWS-

Flannery McCoy: AND NOW A HEADBUTT AFTER BREAKING FREE!!! SOSA’S STUNNED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND NOW XANDER SHOVES HIM OFF, LETTING HIM FALL TO THE MAT BELOW AND SOSA HENDERSON CRASHES TO THE MAT WHILE XANDER’S GOT BLOOD STREAMING DOWN HIS FACE, LOOKING DOWN AND STILL STANDING!!!

Stew-O: BUT NOT FOR LONG AS HE LEAPS OFF AND COMES PLUMMETING DOWN ONTO SOSA IN A FROG SPLASH!!! ALL OF XANDER’S WEIGHT COMES DOWN ON SOSA FROM ALL THE WAY UP TOP, CRUSHING SOSA UNDERNEATH HIM AND XANDER ENDS UP ROLLING OFF OF HIM!!!

Jake Mercer: Both men are down in the ring and now whoever can take advantage of this moment is going to be that much closer to getting out of Operation: Doomsday with the World Heavyweight Championship in their hands! SOSA and Xander still down on the mat, but it’s Xander who begins to move first! Xander slowly but surely beginning to turn himself over and push himself up, looking just as exhausted as SOSA was moments ago!

Flannery McCoy: Xander shaking his head as he looks at SOSA still on the ground, not knowing how he’s still going but he looks to put him away as he starts over toward him! Xander grabbing him and beating him over his back as he begins to bring him up to his feet, Xander whipping him across the ring!

Stew-O: SOSA comes off the ropes and XANDER POPS HIM UP INTO THE AIR- SOSA ENDS KNEES HIM IN THE SHOULDER THAT STRUCK THE POST EARLIER!! XANDER TURNS AWAY BUT SOSA TURNS HIM BACK, AND SOSA STRIKES WITH A RIGHT! XANDER FIGHTING BACK WITH ONE OF HIS OWN BEFORE SOSA CLOBBERS HIM AGAIN! SOSA GETTING IN MORE SHOTS BEFORE XANDER STARTS TO SWING BACK!! XANDER TURNING THE TIDE AGAINST SOSA WHO WAS STARTING TO OVERPOWER HIM!!!

Jake Mercer: XANDER’S PUNCHING HIM BACK INTO THE CORNER BUT AN ELBOW FROM SOSA KNOCKS HIM BACK! SOSA STARTING TO BATTLE HIS WAY BACK OUT, STILL TRADING BLOWS WITH XANDER-

Flannery McCoy: SOSA DUCKS A PUNCH FROM XANDER AND CAPTURES THE ARM!! SOSA TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE MAT IN AN ARM-TRAP CROSSFACE!!! SOSA LEAVES XANDER TO TRY TO FIGHT OUT OF THIS WITH THAT ARM HE’D TARGETED MOMENTS AGO WHILE HE’S GOT THE OTHER TRAPPED, AND XANDER’S TRYING TO FIND A WAY OUT!!!

Stew-O: XANDER HASN’T BEEN CAUGHT LIKE THIS ALL MATCH BUT NOW SOSA’S TAKEN ADVANTAGE IT’S LOOKING HARDER FOR XANDER TO ESCAPE!! SOSA WRENCHING BACK ON THE HOLD AND XANDER’S NECK AND HEAD AFTER TAKEN SOME HARD BLOWS FROM SOSA, THIS CAN ONLY BE AGGRAVATING THAT SITUATION FOR HIM!!

Jake Mercer: SOSA SHOUTING AT XANDER TO TAP OUT BUT XANDER’S GOT NO INTENTION OF DOING THAT! XANDER TRYING TO CLAW AT THE HANDS OF SOSA BUT SOSA ISN’T BUDGING!! XANDER SHOUTING AS HE’S GOT HIS NECK CRANKED BACK AND HE’S STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!

Flannery McCoy: BUT XANDER’S APPARENTLY SET ON TRYING TO FIND SOME WAY OUT OF THIS, STARTING TO TRY TO GO THE ROPES! XANDER TRUDGING AND STARTING TO DRAG SOSA ALONG WITH HIM BUT I’M NOT SURE HOW FAR HE’LL MAKE IT!!

Stew-O: THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION FINDS HIMSELF IN TROUBLE, AND IF HE TAPS OUT HERE AFTER THE WAY HE CAME INTO THIS MATCH MOCKING HBB, SOSA WILL NEVER LET HIM LIVE THIS MATCH DOWN!! XANDER REFUSING TO TAP OUT STILL AS HE GETS CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE ROPES!! XANDER IS DETERMINED TO MAKE IT OUT OF THIS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER!!

Jake Mercer: SOSA TRYING TO PUT EVERYTHING HE HAS LEFT INTO KEEPING THIS HOLD ON XANDER BUT XANDER’S DETERMINATION IS LOOKING LIKE IT MIGHT WIN OUT! XANDER REACHING OUT FOR THE BOTTOM ROPE THAT’S HE’S CLOSED DOWN ON WITH JUST INCHES AWAY! XANDER REACHING OUT WITH HIS FINGERTIPS JUST NEARLY BRUSHING THE ROPE-

Flannery McCoy: SOSA KICKS OFF THE BOTTOM ROPE TO ROLL THEM AWAY FROM THE ROPES! BUT XANDER USES THE MOMENTUM TO END UP ON TOP OF SOSA IN A PIN AS SOSA STILL HAS THE CROSSFACE ON!!!

Referee: OOOOONNNNNNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEE!!!

Stew-O: SOSA RELEASES THE HOLD AND SOSA RUSHES TO GET UP! BEATING XANDER AND CATCHING HIM IN A FRONT HEADLOCK! XANDER TRYING TO PUSH HIMSELF OUT BUT SOSA STARTS CLUBBING HIM AND SENDING KNEE STRIKES HIS WAY! BUT XANDER FINDS SOME STRENGTH TO TRY TO PUSH HIM BACK INTO THE ROPES, SOSA KICKING OFF AND LOOKING TO TAKE XANDER DOWN!

Jake Mercer: BUT XANDER SHOVES HIM AWAY AND SLIPS FREE, SOSA RUNNING AT HIM AND XANDER LIFTS HIM UP INTO THE AIR! SOSA ESCAPING XANDER’S CLUTCHES AS HE GOES OVERHEAD!

Flannery McCoy: “STOLE YO BITCH”!!! A SPRINGBOARD RKO AS SOSA COMES OFF THE ROPES AND CATCHES XANDER ON THE WAY DOWN!!! SOSA TURNING OVER AND TRUDGING OVER, MAKING HIS WAY OVER TO XANDER!!!

Stew-O: SOSA MOVING TO GRAB HIM AND TURN HIM OVER!!! SOSA MAKES THE COVER ON XANDER AND THE REFEREE MOVES IN TO COUNT!!!

Referee: OOOOONNNNNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!

Referee: TTTTTTWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!

Jake Mercer: XANDER PAYNE WITH THE KICKOUT!!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA IS STUNNED AS HE LOOKS UP TO THE REFEREE, NOT UNDERSTANDING HOW HE COULD’VE BEATEN THE THREE COUNT! HE’S SO SURE THAT SHOULD’VE BEEN IT!!

Stew-O: Him and everyone else! But Xander isn’t to be counted out or overlooked, Xander’s proving himself to be a resilient force! What it’s going to take SOSA to do now at this point, I’m not sure but Xander’s certainly going to push him to find out!

Jake Mercer: SOSA slaps the mat more visibly frustrated than before, huffing as he shakes his head and looks down at Xander, who’s beginning to stir again after all he’s been through and SOSA can’t believe it. SOSA picks himself up and grabs Xander, positioning him near the corner and stomping the hell out of him to make sure that he’s got him where he wants him! SOSA wants no surprises! SOSA begins to climb up from the bottom, looking back over his shoulder occasionally to make sure Xander’s still in place!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA’s been taking chances this entire match and he’s looking for this one to pay off like the others, as he gets to the top turnbuckle and comes to stand up on it! SOSA TAKING A MOMENT BEFORE HE GOES FOR A DIVING MOONSAULT!!!!

Stew-O: SOSA GOES BOUNCING OFF XANDER AS XANDER GETS HIS KNEES UP!!!

Jake Mercer: SOSA IS ROLLING ACROSS THE MAT, OBVIOUSLY IN PAIN AS HE’S GOT HIS ARMS WRAPPED AROUND HIS TORSO AND HIS RIBS!! SOSA TOOK A RISK AND IT DIDN’T PAY OFF AS HE’S FINDING OUT FROM THE SHOOTING PAIN HE’S ENDURING!!!

Flannery McCoy: Definitely not the outcome that SOSA was looking for but Xander just shows his awareness, and how he’s gotten to this point so far! SOSA is kicking his feet against the mat and Xander’s across the ring beginning to move, knowing that he just had a huge counter against his challenger!

Stew-O: Xander pulls himself up with the ropes and stumbles his way over to SOSA, beginning to drag him up and he strikes SOSA repeatedly with heavy handed shots to the face and head, SOSA struggling to even fight back!

Jake Mercer: Xander has him against the ropes and snaps his head back with a huge uppercut that has SOSA looking all kinds of dazed and confused about what just happened! SOSA looking out of it as Xander chops him across the chest and proceeds to YANK HIM AWAY IN A SPINNING DOUBLE UNDERHOOK NECKBREAKER!!!

Flannery McCoy: The World Heavyweight Champion is looking to send a clear message here through SOSA, as he’s making him pay for the show of resilience! Xander sits up clearly tired himself and SOSA’s on the mat with his hand pressed to the back of his neck now, going through what’s surely got to be an enormous amount of pain right now! And Xander cracks a smile seeing that SOSA’s not going anywhere now!

Stew-O: Xander has SOSA up on his knees, trashing him as he points to his bloody face and drives his knee right into SOSA’s!! SOSA falls over and tries to crawl away, but Xander isn’t letting him get far as he wraps him up to bring SOSA to a vertical base, THROWING HIM OVERHEAD FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX!! BUT XANDER KEEPS HOLD OF HIM AND TURNS OVER INTO ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER!! AND ANOTHER!!!

Stew-O: Xander finally lets him go and gets to his feet, looking to punish SOSA further by raising him up onto his shoulders INTO AN INVERTED USHIGOROSHI!!! SOSA ROLLS AWAY COVERING HIS FACE AS XANDER JUST WORSENS THE DAMAGE DONE!!

Jake Mercer: But Xander Payne makes his way and goes to grab him up, positioning him up for the same move-

Flannery McCoy: SOSA SOMEHOW MANAGES TO LAND ON HIS FEET AS XANDER DROPS TO A KNEE!! XANDER LOOKS SURPRISED JUST BEFORE SOSA LANDS A HUGE RIGHT! XANDER TRYING TO GET TO HIS FEET AS SOSA CONTINUES TO HAMMER AWAY, TRYING TO MAKE A SPIRITED COMEBACK!!!

Stew-O: SOSA WHIPPING XANDER ACROSS THE RING AND SOSA CHARGES AT HIM TO JUMP AT ONCOMING XANDER-

Jake Mercer: “LAST SEDATION”!!!! THE POP-UP POWERBOMB BY XANDER TO SOSA AND ABSOLUTELY HURLS HIM TO THE MAT!!! XANDER THROWS SOSA DOWN AND XANDER DROPS INTO THE COVER!!!

Referee: OOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!

Referee: TTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!

Referee: TTTTTTHHHHHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“It Follows” by Cane Hill begins to play and Xander rolls off of SOSA, the referee coming over with the World Heavyweight Championship as Xander is assisted in sitting up.)

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND STILLLLLLLL THE EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… THE HEAVYWEIGHT GOD, XANDER PAYNE!!!!

Stew-O: After a series of back and forths, and surprise counters, we finally come to the end of this match where Xander Payne has retained the World Heavyweight Championship!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA Henderson and Xander Payne undoubtedly pushed each other’s limits here tonight, with SOSA nearly coming close to becoming a World Champion for the second time in his incredible career, but Xander Payne came through in the end to put a stop to SOSA!

Jake Mercer: Xander had stopped his momentum a number of times throughout the match and at times when SOSA was trying to get back into the match, showing an awareness that has kept his reign going for as long as it has!

Stew-O: But his arrogance nearly cost him at times – mocking and taunting SOSA as well as HBB, getting too cocky – and in the end, it seems warranted as he retains over a very game SOSA and Xander is only going to continue to assert his dominance in every way he can!

Flannery McCoy: Credit to SOSA for all that he put in tonight and leaving everyone with the lasting impression that this season could truly be full of future opportunities and moments to shine! Tonight, however, belongs to Xander Payne!

(Inside the ring Xander has shoved the referee and continues to march around the ring, shouting at the booing crowd while the ring official helps SOSA Henderson from the ring. Xander hoists the EAW World Heavyweight Championship up, still shouting as he looks out at the audience following this successful defense of his championship. On the sight of Xander now using both hands to raise the World Heavyweight Title high, the scene fades out.)

(The show returns to the ring as the live audience begins to stir. “Trophies” by Drake begins to blast as the entire building pops. Cheers and boos rain all over as out walks with a cocky stroll the man known worldwide as Joso. Joso is seen wearing his in ring attire and his own “Don’t Miss” shirt on too.)

Stew-O: One of the freshest faces in EAW, one of the hottest rising young stars, Joso looks poised to make a statement tonight.

Flannery McCoy: We are a week away from the biggest show of the year and Joso could make history by winning the New Era Classic. Joso made it to the finals and he’s a lot of people’s favorites going into PFP.

Jake Mercer: I can’t blame anyone for buying in. Joso could be blindfolded and have his arms tied behind his back but even if that happened he still would not miss!

(Joso smirks as he enters the ring. Joso looks around the arena as he laughs at the fans booing him and singles out the ones cheering with a head nod towards them. Joso is handed a microphone as his music begins to fade away.)

Joso: We in sunny Phoenix, Arizona tonight but lets not beat around the bush…the hottest elitist in pro wrestling is in this ring right here right now.

(Some of the fans cheer and some boo as Joso shrugs his shoulders.)

Joso: If you disagree with that well…tough luck. If you don’t like it well… I don’t care. If you agree keep that noise up and if you like what you see and look like Zendaya stay after the show I got some merch for you. Maybe even a room key, I’m only here for one night. I’m only here for tonight and after that I’m on my way to Las Vegas because that’s where this year’s Pain for Pride will be. That’s where Pain for Pride will be so you know that’s where Joso needs to be. Someone else that needs to be at Pain for Pride is that choke job Harley Lewis.

(The crowd pops at the mention of Harley Lewis as Joso rolls his eyes.)

Joso: I see he has some supporters huh? Well, if theres a choice between Harley Lewis and me regarding who is going to get the last words ahead of The New Era Classic Finals…it’s going to be me. Sure we’ve had our fair share of fun these past few weeks, doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that, yadda yadda. That was cool right? But now that’s said and done, it’s over with, and Joso can finally make his Pain For Pride debut and shine where it truly counts. News flash, Harley was never on my level to begin with. Regardless of what he thinks and any of you ever thought, the truth is for these past few weeks I’ve had to stoop down to his just to give the little guy a chance, and now I’ve had enough of it. It’s been painfully obvious that he is simply on a whole other level compared to everyone else that he’s faced in EAW. When I’m cemented as the future of EAW after beating Harley and raising that New Era Classic trophy high in the air, there will be no doubt about who the new face of Elite Answers Wrestling will be.

(The crowd pops as Joso begins sounding cockier than before.)

Joso: Because I’ve heard a lot of people talking about me lately, criticizing me and saying this and that like they know Joso but the reality is they don’t. They clearly are ignorant to who I am and the quality of talent I am. Because all I ever do is exceed what people expect. My entire life I’ve always blown expectations away and every single week I will be the one that shows out and upstage all my peers. I’m a 24/7, 365, day in and day out legend in the making. So Harley? No issues with him because facing him is just another day in the office for Joso. A job that Joso going to do handle with ease. Harley is going to regret ever participating in the New Era Classic, because all this time, everyone else including Harley was fighting for second place. All this effort just to get silver medal while Joso claims the gold. I’m your New Era Classic winner because Joso DON’T –

???: Woah, woah, woah my friend. Before you finish that how about you save some of that energy spewing that stupid catchphrase…

(Suddenly, all attention turns to the tron as we see Harley Lewis backstage breathing heavily with a steel chair in his hand.)

Harley Lewis: Joso, what’s going on? Nice rant. While you were busying making sure you got the last word…I’ve spent this entire time making sure your friend listened to my side of this story. Right, Angelo Carter?!

(The camera backs up as we see a barely conscious Angelo Carter clutching his skull as hes clearly been attacked by Harley Lewis. Harley shows off the heavily dented chair as Angelo rises to one knee with his hands up trying to protect himself.)

Angelo Carter: You dirty mother-

BAM!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: HARLEY JUST COCKED BACK AND SHATTERED ANGELO’S SKULL WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR!!!!! HARLEY IS WAILING AWAY AT THE BODY OF ANGELO CARTER AS Joso LOOKS ON IN HORROR!!!!

Jake Mercer: HIT AFTER HIT AFTER HIT LIKE DJ KHALED, ANGELO IS ALMOST OUT OF IT AS Joso HAS SEEN ENOUGH AND LEAVES THE RING!

Harley Lewis: The New Era Classic finals ends with me and only me!

BAM!!!!

Harley Lewis: I am the future of EAW…not you, Joso…

BAM!!! BAM!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Joso IS RUNNING AS FAST AS HE CAN AS HARLEY FINALLY BEGINS TO STOP BASHING ANGELO WITH THAT DENTED UP STEEL CHAIR!!!

Harley Lewis: Hey, hey you guys look…I guess Joso isn’t the only one that DON’T MISS!!!!

BAM!!!!!! BAM!!!! BAM!!!!!

(The camera cuts backstage fully as we see Joso panicking and sprinting around the arena.)

Joso: HARLEY! HARLEY!!! YOU PUNK ASS BITCH!!! HARLEY!!!! TRY THAT SHIT WITH ME!!!!

(Joso is bumping into staff and speeding around every corner until he finally arrives near the area where the attack happened. Joso sees an out cold Angelo Carter with a dented up chair by his side as Joso slides to be by his friend’s side.)

Joso: That rat bastard! AYO! GET THE EMTS! GET THE DOCTORS! HELP! HARLEY LEWIS YOU PUNK ASS COWARD!!!!!

Stew-O: That was one hell of an attack by Harley. Angelo Carter looked like a pinata with the way Lewis kept bashing his head in with that freaking chair.

Jake Mercer: Harley putting the PAIN in Pain for Pride. This New Era Classic already looks to be 6 stars and we ain’t even in the Tokyo Dome for this one!!!

(The scene ends with Joso waving down medical staffers who quickly try to tend to the fallen Angelo Carter.)

[SCREENBAR: YESTERDAY AFTERNOON.]

(The scene fades into The Amargosa Sand Dunes in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Dunes stretch 1.5 miles into the Mojave Desert. While not one of the safest places to be, Alex Myers is someone who enjoys the thrill of the possibility of something bad happening. While they are a series of survivalists who is more than giving them the advice on how to drive around this route, it seems like they have left them alone in the Dune Buggy, looking ahead to the beautiful sight of the Dunes.)

Alex Myers: The competition these last couple of weeks has been intense…

(Alex Myers lifts up their shirt so that everyone could see the bandages wrapped around their ribs. While they have more than a week to heal, you can tell that they are still providing them with pain, but not enough to do some sightseeing and reflecting.)

Alex Myers… and last week, I felt that first hand. I not only feel short in defeating Dr. Bethany Blue on Dynasty, but it seems like an injury has put a damper on my Pain for Pride season. After the match, I felt some pain around my rib cage everyone, so I went to the trainer’s room to get my rib cage checked. It was then that the medical personnel revealed that I had injured my match. With the match only being two weeks away, I was given the option to opt out of the match. It would give EAW the time to look for a potential replacement to represent the Dynasty brand at Pain for Pride, but I didn’t give a damn. I didn’t give a damn that it hurt to get off the table. I didn’t give a damn that I was in an immense amount of pain. I have never given a damn about what happens to my body. I could have my arm falling off my socket and I’ll be asking when’s the next time I am going to compete. I took one good look at the New Breed Championship on my lap and thought that I’ve got this far already, why stop?

(Alex Myers lets the question linger as it’s completely silent in the Amargosa Sand Dunes. Alex looks at the New Breed Championship in the passenger seat of the Dune Buggy, picks it up, and looks at it, almost like they looked at it in the trainer’s room. They know that the New Breed Championship is what’s about for them. They busted their ass each week, trying to get themselves noticed and making sure that no one forgot them and they weren’t going to let their hard work slip away from them. Pain for Pride is a huge thing and to miss, it would suck for them. )

Alex Myers: Earlier this week, I was given the okay to fight and even with that slight hindrance, nothing is going to stop me from defeating both Ruler and Aurora Monroe in the triple threat scenario. There is nothing else that I am motivated to do than to make sure that I defeat those two and leave Las Vegas with my reign as New Breed Champion intact. I am not going to miss my first Pain for Pride, where I’m walking in as the New Breed Champion — something that not many people do in their first year in the company — and standing on that stage that has created legends and showcased some of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. I want my name to be added to the list. I want Alex Myers to go down as one of the best and a way to do that is by defeating two of EAW’s rising stars.

Alex Myers: Ruler is someone who I have a history with. While he is not surprised about him walking into his first Pain for Pride, challenging for the New Breed Championship, I am not going to lie and say that I was a little surprised that our rivalry is going to be rehashed in a bigger stage. What he needs to understand is that it’s not going to be a few hundred people in a barn that are going to see us kill each other in that ring. It’s going to be the entire world. The entire world is going to have the opportunity to see me shorten the life span of the man who has had my number in the past. What else can someone like me ask for? Ruler thinks that he’s going into this match, believing that he has me already figured out. Finally, he knows what he needs to do to defeat me. I really don’t want to have this conversation, but I’m not the same person that he fought outside of this company, and at Pain for Pride, he’s going to realize that. He is going to realize that he is nothing more than if I can make him, I can break him. I can destroy everything that made him special and leave him with nothing more than broken dreams of a better future for himself. He knew this. He knew ahead of time what he was up against and even when the warnings were put dead in front of him, he didn’t budge. That’s on him and he’s going to face the consequences just as he did the last time we faced off.

Alex Myers: For Aurora Monroe, I don’t know who has been telling her that she should be in any championship picture, but I hope that Pain for Pride is a bit of a reality check for her. Aurora is way out of her league. Since day one, we’ve seen Aurora be put on a pedestal as the future of the women’s division. She had the aura that screams ‘future champion,’ but I fail to see that. She may have gotten a shot at the New Breed Championship, but what she needs to realize is that it’s not as easy as waltzing in and challenging for a championship that she doesn’t deserve. You have to earn it here. With me as champion, anyone who wants to step up to face the champion is going to need to earn it. It’s what made Ruler someone who has the right in taking part in this match. He earned his opportunity. I fail to see why Aurora deserves a shot at the New Breed Champion. If we’re looking at the reasoning and justification for everyone being part of this triple threat, I fail to see what her’s is? She interjected herself and now, she pays the price at the hands of the New Breed Savior. But even if Aurora isn’t deserving of it, I’m still grateful that she was added to the match.

Alex Myers: What can I say? The more, the merrier. The more people added, the more chaotic this match gets and if there is something about me, it’s that I THRIVE in chaos. I live for the thrill that anyone can take this championship from me when I least expect it. It just makes things funnier for me. While I think it would be great to beat Ruler on a big stage, I think that adding someone like Aurora into the mix is going to make this more entertaining than expected. I will find great enjoyment in beating both of them and continuing to do what was the mission at the very beginning and that’s elevating the New Breed division and bringing this championship to new heights. Are you going to try to convince me that Ruler or Aurora is what the New Breed Championship needs? No, they aren’t. They are not capable of elevating the title like I have been able to so far, but I am. For sure, I am the one man who is more than capable of getting the job done. While the chances of me walking out still champion seem slim, I’m all about defying those odds. I’m all about having that target on my back. Everyone wants a piece of the champion and well, I’ve been out in the open. I have never been afraid of putting myself out in the open. I don’t shy away from the competition. I don’t shy away when things are getting intimidating. I embrace whatever challenge comes my way and at Pain for Pride, I will overcome that challenge as I leave Las Vegas, Nevada STILL the New Breed Champion and most importantly, your New Breed Savior.

(Alex Myers looks at the camera and then looks forward into the possibilities of their future. The scene fades elsewhere.)

[SCREENBAR: TERRITORIAL INVASION 2021 – TEAM DYNASTY (VISUAL PROPHET, ANDRE WALKER & SOSA HENDERSON) VS TEAM SHOWDOWN (IMPACT, LETHAL CONSEQUENCES & THERON NIKOLAS) VS TEAM VOLTAGE (DRAKE KING, MYLES, & MINERVA); STADIUM STAMPEDE]

( DING! DING! DING! )

Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… THE FOLLOWING IS THE FIRST EVER STADIUM STAMPEDE MATCH!!!!

( The camera pans across the Tiger Stadium crowd before transitioning to a bird’s eye view of a secluded section of the western parking lot. All of the parking spaces are filled with the vehicles of various elitists, with stagehands, referees, and emergency personnel on hand at the outskirts. )

Stew-O: For the past four years, we have seen the main event of Territorial Invasion settled within the confines of the Wargames structure. Now, for the first time ever, we will see the nine-person fight fest see its conclusion scattered throughout the Tiger Stadium. All of us have been accustomed to all nine competitors absolutely going at it inside of the structure—now there are no limitations, there are no set boundaries, there are no restraints because everything inside and around the Tiger Stadium is legal! Forget what you knew about brand warfare in general because we are going to take it to the next level!

Persephone: The world was a tad shocked to see Elite Answers Wrestling take a change in direction for tonight’s main event, and I am certain the nine competitors tonight are excited to use anything and everything that they can see. Everything is literally legal in this match. You can take your personal rivalries anywhere in this stadium and that is what is so unique in this match. It is not like others and it will be interesting on how they will deal with this type of stipulation. Hopefully, they grab machine guns and shoot each other to death with them?

Stew-O: Now, Seph, where would they obtain assault rifles in a football stadium?

Persephone: Even if I knew the answer to that question, I wouldn’t know. If I were to guess, however? Alex Myers most likely has an entire armory in his backpack with his school shooting ass, or Ronan Malosi judging how he’d probably want to reminisce of the Capitol days. All I want is for one of them to be murdered! I WANT THE BLOOD AND GUTS! GIVE ME IT!

Gavin Kirkland: This is going to be a clusterfuck of a match, guys. The stipulation where they can travel across this stadium is cool and call, but as long as they don’t accidentally stumble into my secret room for entertainment purposes, then this match will be goated as fuck! Can we get this on and over with! I feel like I am ready to pounce. My left leg is fucking covered with hair because of that sexual fiend dog that Jake has, and I just want to see this chaos unravel!

( “My Brother (The DragonSlayer) by Shiro Sagisu begins to play. As per usual, the camera picks up several audience members throwing their thumbs down and booing the yellow brand’s representatives. With the new slow motion camera, New Eden descends from the northern entrance of the parking lot. Yellow-tinted lights shine down on their stoic expressions. All three members are razer-focused in the task at hand, predictably dragging their championships and briefcases without a care in the world and prepared to get this done and over with. New Eden usually arrives at the scene annoyed by audience members, but since there is no one but them, they seem to be neutral.

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! Representing Voltage; Mr. Cash In The Vault, Myles, The EAW National Elite Champion, Minerva, and the EAW World Champion, Drake King—NEWWWWWWWW EDENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!

Stew-O: New Eden have maintained a strong vice grip over Sunday nights for nearly half a year now, and with the incentive to run Voltage for a month, the controversial trio is definitely in full force tonight. Imagine what Drake King, Myles and Minerva would be like if they were in power. Imagine the change they would bring down onto that landscape and I don’t believe that the Voltage roster is too happy knowing what will happen if they were to win. New Eden only arrives on the scene to get what they want and they will not leave the Tiger Stadium without the acquisition of the traditional bragging rights.

Persephone: Captain Charisma is shooting himself in the foot with this reward. Yeah, he does somewhat satisfy the wants and needs of New Eden by bringing that incentive to the table, but what about us? I don’t fucking want these three charlatans to be in charge of my paycheque, and I don’t think a majority of the Voltage roster would wish that onto themselves too. Such horrible management and if they do win this match; don’t be surprised if you see me on Dynasty and Showdown.

Gavin Kirkland: You should join me on Showdown. We would make an explosive duo—in and out of the commentary booth. :mjlit:

Persephone: On second thought, maybe I will stay.

Stew-O: It would be wise for New Eden to stay away from dangerous situations—opposite of what Persephone is praying for—because these three competitors are scheduled to compete a week from now in Kuwait. Minerva will defend her National Elite Championship, Drake King will defend his EAW World Championship, and Myles’ opponent has yet to be determined. If they do put absolutely everything on their line—and I am talking about EVERYTHING—then it might not bode well in their all-important matches a week from now. However, New Eden has fought through hell and high water to get what they want, so tonight is no different. I have no doubt in my eyes that these three extremely talented individuals will bounce back, but with this stipulation, their fates have been opened up to even more possibilities.

( Drake King and Minerva tosses their respective championship belts to the side, while Myles throws his Cash In The Vault briefcase across four rows of cars—hitting a stagehand in the process. New Eden stands side by side in unison before their theme song fades into silence. To their chagrin, a bright turquoise light surrounds the eastern entrance. )

( “Paint It Black” by Hidden Citizens hits to a huge ovation as Theron Nikolas slams a door open to get through the eastern entrance. He wears clothes representing Showdown colours and immediately goes nose-to-nose with Minerva. The referee separates him as “Success Is My Cologne by Curren$y” starts to play to a thunderous reaction from the crowd. Lethal Consequences seemed to take a different route as he stands at the top of the stairwell adjacent to the eastern entrance. He looks around the parking lot, scanning the ambience before quickly descending the stairs. )

Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENTS! FIRST!—They are the team of Theron Nikolas, Lethal Consequences, and Impact—TEAAAAM SHOOOOWDOWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!

Gavin Kirkland: From what I have seen from our brand, Team Showdown originally had no chemistry between all of its members. Theron Nikolas initially had no aspiration to associate himself with Lethal Consequences and Impact. Even for one night, he didn’t want to cooperate with them, but Hurricane Hawk has now promised him to make it worth his while, so Theron is competing tonight in hopes that he does get his worth his while. Just like New Eden, Team Showdown is competing with huge incentives. Well, I don’t think Lethal Consequences wants a huge reward out of this, but Impact and Nikolas are enticed by the opportunities hinted at by their management.

Stew-O: This is definitely what New Eden has an advantage in. New Eden have been together for months now and have built an unbreakable trusting bond between one another. Team Dynasty and Showdown on the other hand have no other choice but to make compromises by setting their egos and hatred for one another aside for Territorial Invasion. It has been a recurring theme with every year’s main event and with the chance of those two teams imploding, New Eden might just have won automatically. Team Showdown are the individuals that were the architects to this stipulation, so they might bring some unexpected offense to this match that no one will see coming. That is definitely what Voltage and Dynasty should factor in because these three are the most cerebral in this match and should be watched out for.

Persephone: It appears to be that the bald old man and Theron Nikolas are entering this match short of one individual. All three members of New Eden seem confused by this approach, but they quickly go back to focusing on this match. Lethal Consequences and Theron Nikolas are viciously staring into their eyes as everyone—including us—are just waiting for them to get it on!

Gavin Kirkland: What Persephone! LETS MARVIN GAYE AND GET IT ON!

( Lethal Consequences and Theron Nikolas stand together against New Eden intentionally without Impact. They all exchange insults before a red light dawns on the most southern entrance. They all scoff at the same time as “Family Ties’ ‘ by Baby Keem ft. Kendrick Lamar starts to subtly play through the speakers of a car from afar. The crowd pops to what they can hear as all of them turn their heads to see a 1961 Lincoln Continental vehicle descending from a ramp. In slow motion, it pans across all three Dynasty elitists. Andre Walker lays in the left backseat, arms resting against the door as his long hair moves in harmony with the wind as SOSA Henderson sits right beside him. The Visual Prophet has his feet on the dashboard while Albert Hitchman drives the car.

Bella Braxton: AND THEIR OPPONENTS! They are the team of SOSA Henderson, Andre Walker, and Visual Prophet—TEEEAAAAM DYNASTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!

Gavin Kirkland: I honestly wish the security guards didn’t have to raid through my baggage earlier and confiscate me of my twenty gallon jugs of lubricants! I would be off the grid-ri-ri-ri-ri right now if they had not done it now because ladies and gentlemen we are in the presence of the Kaiser himself! ANDRE WALKER! One of the greatest wrestlers going on right now and I wish I could just walk over there and touch his hair. Have you ever touched his hair, Persephone? Stewy? It is absolutely magnificent and it has to be made from the Gods! LET’S GET THIS SHIT!!

Stew-O: I unfortunately never had the opportunity to touch his hair, Gavin, so I can’t really relate. Andre Walker is heading into this match with intent to absolutely destroy anyone that gets in his path. He has a huge championship match ahead of him as he earned at Operation: Doomsday against Bronson Daniels, so I am sure that is on his mind. However, like Vizzy and SOSA, all three of them have to set aside the conflicts over Friday Night Dynasty and worry about working like a well-oiled machine.

Persephone: Why would you enter in a car? Are you so fucking lazy that you can’t just walk a couple of steps towards the other teams?

Gavin Kirkland: Now what if your so-called lord and saviour, Rex McAllister came out here on a vehicle?

Persephone: Then, I would simply bow down before him and worship him like the sexy god that he is! :confounded: :woozy_face: :drooling_face:

( All three teams—with Showdown missing Impact—all stare each other for a couple of moments. )

( POW )

Stew-O: DRAKE KING CLOCKS VISUAL PROPHET WITH A CHEAP SHOT ACROSS THE JAW!! All hell breaks loose in the parking lot! Everyone is throwing hands at each other—Minerva brawls with Theron Nikolas, Myles, LC, and Andre Walker, and SOSA Henderson avenges the cheap shot full steam ahead on the reigning EAW World Champion! The inaugural Stadium Stampede begins with a cheap shot as Minerva grabs Theron Nikolas and attempts to Irish whip him towards the bumper of a car! Theron Nikolas blocks it, pulls her back in, and STUFFS HER WITH A DISGUSTING FOREARM SMASH TO THE FACE!! AND WE GO LEFT AND ANDRE WALKER GETS STUFFED WITH A KNEE STRIKE FROM MYLES!!

Persephone: MY CAFFEINE HAS JUST KICKED IN AND HERE COMES MYLES AS HE TRIES TO SLAM CONSEQUENCES’ HEAD ONTO THE REAR-END OF A MOTORCYCLE!! CONSEQUENCES BLOCKS IT BY PLACING HIS FOOT ON THE WHEEL, MUSCLES THE BRIEFCASE HOLDER AND TRIES TO SLAM HIM INSTEAD!! BUT THE GINGER FUCK SMASHES HIS SHOULDER INTO HIS MIDSECTION AND KICKS HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE!! THAT WORKS AS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES MOMENTARILY CRAWLS AWAY FROM THE CURRENT MR. SHIT IN THE VAULT! ANDRE WALKER GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AFTER THAT DEVASTATING KNEE AND PUSHES MYLES OVER THE MOTORCYCLE! AND HE POSITIONS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES INTO THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE HOLD!! THIS MATCH MIGHT END ALREADY!!

Gavin Kirkland: Did you just see Myles boobies bounce when he connected with that precision shoot kick? Absolutely astounding as he and Lethal Consequences take it to a truck. SOSA Henderson and Drake King brawl in front of a minivan. Left and rights from both sides before KING TRIES TO SWEEP THE LEGS!! HENDERSON LEAPS OVER HIS LEG AND ROLLS UP ONTO HIS FEET!! AND HE CONNECTS RIGHT ON THE CHEEK WITH A HAYMAKER PUNCH!! Drake King is staggered now as SOSA Henderson jumps onto a motorcycle and uses it as a trampoline! AND HE LEAPS ONTO KING AND TAKES HIM OUT WITH A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE OFF THE MOTORCYCLE!

Stew-O: Drake King gets grounded with an innovative clothesline as SOSA Henderson gets up to his feet! AND SOSA INADVERTENTLY GOES COLLIDING INTO ANDRE WALKER!! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES ESCAPES THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE HOLD BY DRIVING THE TWO DYNASTY ELITISTS INTO EACH OTHER!! IT WORKED PRETTY WELL SINCE HE IS FREED FROM IT!! MINERVA AND THERON CONTINUE TO EXCHANGE KICKS AND STRIKES BEFORE LC STICKS HIS HEAD INTO THEIR BUSINESS AND TURNS MINERVA AROUND!

Gavin Kirkland: THE FEISTY MINERVA BLASTS SOSA HENDERSON WITH AN EUROPEAN FOREARM!! AND SHE CONNECTS WITH THE SAME STRIKE ONTO THERON NIKOLAS!! Team Showdown is being overwhelmed by Minerva while she spins around for a discus shot kick! THERON GRABS HER FOOT AND SWINGS IT AWAY!! AND IT ENDS UP TAKING OUT LETHAL CONSEQUENCES WITH AN ACCIDENTAL HEEL KICK!! NIKOLAS GRABS MINERVA BY HER HAIR AND THROWS ONTO THE SIDE OF A CAR!! THAT HAS GOT TO HURT!!

Stew-O: THE VISUAL PROPHET STORMS INTO THERON NIKOLAS AND POUNCES HIM INTO THE CAR!! Nikolas goes flying into the side of the car and slides into a sluggest position against it! Prophet re-emerged into the scene to pounce as he charges into Drake King for the same intention! BUT DRAKE CONNECTS WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION!! Prophet grabs his chest in pain as Drake grabs his head and goes for a SNAP DDT ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR!! NO!! PROPHET LIFTS HIM UP AND THROWS HIM FACE-FIRST ONTO THE BACK OF THE MINIVAN!! AND THEN HE RECEIVES HIM OFF THE WHIPLASH AND SENDS HIM ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!

Persephone: DRAKE KING MIRACUOUSLY LANDS ON HIS FEET!! AND ANDRE WALKER TAKES HIM DOWN WITH AN UPPERCUT TO THE FACE!! Getting suplexed onto the cement floor is way worse than an uppercut to the jaw, and now ANDRE GETS KICKED IN THE BACK BY LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!! AND CONSEQUENCES HOISTS WALKER UP INTO THE AIR!! IS HE LOOKING TO DROP HIM ONTO DRAKE KING!! HE DEPOSITS HIM ONTO THE CHEST OF DRAKE KING WITH A SNAP SUPLEX!! WHAT POWER BY THE VETERAN AS HE HAS NO TIME TO RECUPERATE AS MYLES HAS HIM IN HIS SIGHTS!

Stew-O: MYLES TRIES TO FLOOR HIM WITH A KNEE STRIKE, BUT CONSEQUENCES GOT UP TO HIS FEET IN TIME AND SIDESTEPPED IT!! CONSEQUENCES HEADBUTTS HIM AND MYLES IS TAKEN A FEW STEPS BACK!! Consequences look to finish him off with the spinning elbow smash! LCR!! NO!! MINERVA PULLS BACK ON HIS ELBOW AND FLOORS HIM WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE FACE! MINERVA THEN GOES TO THE SIDE AND TAKES THERON OFF HIS KNEES WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK, AND THEN BLASTS ANDRE WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK FOR GOOD MEASURE!

Gavin Kirkland: You need to have eyes on the back of your head at all times in this match, AND THE PROPHET ABRUPTLY SNATCHES MINERVA INTO AN ELECTRIC CHAIR POSITION!! THIS IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!! PROPHET IS IN A LUCKY POSITION HERE WITH HIS HEAD BETWEEN THOSE BEAUTIFUL THIGHS!! Minerva attempts to counter the electric chair into the inverted frankensteiner, but Prophet is too strong as he ENDS UP FLIPPING HER OVER AND DROPPING HER FACE FIRST ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR WITH AN INVERTED ALABAMA SLAM!! MINERVA HAS TO BE OUT! The Visual Prophet takes a deep breath before walking over to the aforementioned mini van to open the door!

Persephone: THE FATASS GRABS THE MINIVAN DOOR HANDL-

Stew-O: DRAKE KING SUPERKICKS HIS HAND INTO THE DOOR HANDLE!! PROPHET GRABS HIS HAND IN PAIN AS A COUPLE OF OTHER PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET UP TO THEIR FEET!! Theron Nikolas has fully recovered as he grabs Prophet from behind and slams him over and over again into the side of the minivan! The Prophet is probably suffering from a concussion already as he falls down onto both knees. Nikolas and King collide behind the minivan! NIKOLAS GOES FOR GOD’S REQUIEM!! BUT KING GETS OUT OF IT, KICKS HIS CHEST, SHOOTS HIS HEAD, AND THEN CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK!!!

Gavin Kirkland: DRAKE KING JUMPS TO STOMP THERON ONTO THE FLOO-

Stew-O: THE VISUAL PROPHET COMES OFF HIS FEET AND POUNCES DRAKE KING IN MID-AIR!! DRAKE KING GOES FLYING AND CRASHED HARD UNPROTECTED ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR!! AND ANDRE WALKER JUMPS OFF THE HOOD OF THE CAR TO RAIN DOWN ONTO THERON NIKOLAS WITH THE KAISER’S TOUCH!! SUPERMAN PUNCH CONNECTS—AND WALKER WALKS RIGHT INTO THE LCR ELBOW!! SPINNING ELBOW SMASH AS LC FALLS TO THE GROUND IN EXHAUSTION!!

Persephone: PROPHET HAS RECUPERATED AS HE NOW SLAMS OPEN THE MINIVAN DOOR AND SMILES AT WHAT HE SEES INSIDE!! WHAT THE HELL COULD BE STORED INSIDE THIS MINI-VAN? PROPHET REACHES INSIDE THE VAN TO GRAB SOMETHING. HE CHUCKLES AND LAUGHS WHILE HE REACHES INSID-

( Myles comes from behind, pushes him into the van and locks the door. He rests against the doors as you can hear Prophet bang on the doors. )

Myles (off-mic): Dumbass cun-

( BOW!!! )

Stew-O: VIZZY SLAMS OPEN THE DOORS AND SMASHES THE BACK OF MYLES’ HEAD IN THE PROCESS!!

( “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” by Jimi Hendrix begins to play in the background as it cinematically showcases The Visual Prophet proudly standing in the minivan door with nunchucks across his shoulders. The guitar begins to set in as The Visual Prophet jumps off the van and in slow-motion, begins to unleash the nunchucks onto the competition before him. )

( There is no commentary as The Visual Prophet nonchalantly moves from one competitor to another and smashes the nunchucks into the midsection of Minerva. )

( :musical_note: And I seen her, fell down right dead :musical_note: )

( The Prophet dances as if he hears his own theme song playing in his head and then proceeds to whip Myles across the collarbone with the nunchucks. He batters his lower back with the nunchucks before rotating and bashing Lethal Consequences in the kneecaps before dropping it across his back. Theron Nikolas attempts to take it away from him, but Prophet pulls him into his knee, kicks him in the face and plows his chest with the nunchuck. )

( :musical_note: “Because I’m a voodoo child, yeah, voodoo child” :musical_note: )

( The Visual Prophet continues to go crazy with the nunchucks. He uses it to sweep the foundation beneath the legs of Drake King and Myles. Andre Walker and SOSA Henderson use the vehicles to get up to her feet and join him with a number games advantage. The camera shows Henderson and Walker stomping down onto Minerva, Nikolas, and Consequences in slow motion before they are directed to grab Drake King and hold him up by the arms. Drake King scrambled as he can’t overpower two people. )

( Walker and Henderson forces Drake King to stay on his knees as The Visual Prophet grabs a baseball bat from the minivan. He gets into a stance as it is evident that he is going to swing the baseball bat into the head of Drake King. )

( :musical_note: Here in your picture frame. ‘Cause I’m a voodoo child. Lord knows, I’m a voodoo c- )

The Visual Prophet: :comeagain:

Gavin Kirkland: WHAT THE!?!? EVERYONE GET OUT OF THE WAY! WE HAVE A BOMBER IN THE BUILDING!

( Suddenly, several bombs are dropped throughout the parking lot. The theme song stops and Team Dynasty lets go Drake King and instinctively gets vigilant of their surroundings. )

Persephone: Someone from out in the parking lot just exploded vibrant coloured smoke throughout the parking lot and I cannot see shit!

Stew-O: Whatever just happened now with the cinematic music was amazing, but it was cut short by whoever dropped these bombs! COULD IT BE?!?!

( The bombs explode; red, yellow, and blue smoke disperse throughout the parking lot that blinds everyone present. Everyone has been separated from the smoke as the person who has released the coloured smoke bombs is unknown as of yet. The camera sees The Visual Prophet rallying his team to stay close to each other, but the smoke ends up separating them either way.)

( “M3tamorphosis” by Playboi Carti and Kid Cudi starts to play… )

( Impact is seen emerging through the rainbow smoke, sporting a customized Impact-themed HAZMAT suit as he aims a smoke bomb cannon towards his opponents. The rest of his opponents have zero idea where he is. A camera positioned inside of his gas mask is seen Impact maniacally laughing and smiling. He clicks a button on his helmet, which turns his goggles into night visions. He throws his cannon to the side before grabbing two blue kendo sticks that were mounted on his back. )

( :musical_note: When you feel like this (what?) Can’t nobody tell you shit (what? Yeah) :musical_note: )

( Since the night vision goggles allow him to see through the smoke, he easily walks through the smoke wielding kendo sticks in both hands. He strikes it against the lower chest of Andre Walker and SOSA Henderson, before sliding towards Minerva and plopping it onto her head. )

( Impact turns Myles around and attempts to deposit both kendo sticks into his chest. However, Myles instinctively grabs his kendo sticks and kicks them out of his hands. Myles goes for his patented knee strike, but Impact is one step ahead and pulls out an extendable night baton and smashes it against his incoming knee. Myles grabs his knee in pain before Impact blasts the baton onto the back of his knee taking him out for the time being. )

( :musical_note: Why the fuck I gotta remind you that I run this shit? (Why?) :musical_note: )

( Impact mumbles the lyrics to himself as he sees Drake King trying to crawl away. Drake King notices that he is coming closer as he starts to run straight forward. Drake King sprints like his life depends on it up on the east entrance as Impact slowly follows him in his badass suit. )

( His theme song blurs into silence as Impact continues to sluggishly follow Drake King around the southern ground level concourse area. Theron Nikolas, Andre Walker, and Myles inadvertently start walking western towards the student residences, while Minerva, SOSA Henderson, Visual Prophet, and Lethal Consequences frantically head north. )

( We focus in on the Drake King-Impact dispute as the camera sees Drake King slowly making his way towards the concourse area. He shoos away fans and barks at them to get out of the way while it seems Impact is picking up the pace. He sees him at the corner of his eye and takes a turn. )

[ Scenic titlebar: “THE CHUTE”. This is a first come, first serve reserved area on the southern floor area of Tiger Stadium between Gates 23 and 28. A myriad of adult fans witness Drake King and Impact approaching The Chute at the gigantic LED screen stretching against the entire left wall. They begin to disperse as Drake King frantically gets his hands on the railing to escape the wrath of Impact ]

Stew-O: It seems like everyone in this match has been separated from their teams. Nikolas, Walker, and Myles got lost on their path and ended up walking blindlessly west, while Minerva, Henderson, Prophet, and Consequences are southbound the Tiger Stadium. How everyone wandered away from each other can be attributed to the legendary arrival of Impact moments ago. Team Dynasty seemed to have this match on lock, until Impact would arrive at the scene, smokescreen everyone in the parking lot and split them up in the process. Drake King was lucky as he was on the verge of being knocked unconscious by those nunchucks before Impact dropped the bombs, but showing gratitude isn’t on his mind now as both men make their way closer towards The Chute.

Persephone: The Chute is a bar in the Tiger Stadium available to a limited quantity of fans! I don’t even believe our EAW World Champion has any idea what direction he is walking here, he is just trying to distance himself as far as possible from that chaotic scene from minutes ago. Hopefully he falls down a flight of stairs and cracks his head open, but instead he takes a tight turn into the main entrance to the Chute! Everyone at their tables both cheers and boos at his arrival. Drake wanders his eyes throughout the bar and looks for anyone participating in this match.

Drake King: (off-mic) Where did everyone go?

Gavin Kirkland: Drake King looks behind his shoulder and sees no tracings of his New Eden confidants. He takes a deep breath realizing that he has been isolated from Minerva and Myles and immediately takes a beer bottle from a bystander and crouches with caution. Drake King recognizes that he must have been followed here. Impact didn’t seem so excited to chase Drake King down. He definitely accomplished the mission of separating everyone, but I think he had this planned in the first place. Team Showdown did invent this match in the first place, and everyone knows that Impact is a mastermind at this type of shit, and I have no doubt that he already knows the layout of this stadium inside out.

( Drake King smashes the beer bottle onto the edge of a tabletop to break it down for a jagged edge. He threatens fans and tells them to get away because he recognizes that he is in a precarious position and must not trust anyone surrounding him. King stands on top of the countertop to make an announcement in The Chute. )

Drake King: (off-mic) GET AWAY FROM ME! HAS ANYONE SEEN IMPACT? OR THE VISUAL PROPHET!! PLEASE KNOW THAT IF YOU DO, DON’T BE AFRAID TO PUNCH THEM IN THE FACE! THE TIGER STADIUM IS CURRENTLY ROAMING WITH SECURITY THREATS AND WE SHALL NO-

Waitress: SIR! I politely ask you to get down from the countertop and stop causing quite a commotion here in the bar. If you want to be served, then I request that you provide proof of identification. I get paid minimum wage, and our bouncers have already thrown out a lot of homeless men who snuck into this stadium, so please don’t make me add to those numbers. ID, or you’re out of here, pal.

Drake King: (off-mic) :francis: Wow. I’m only here because I was basically forced to be here. Besides, drinking alcohol is a sin, an act of gluttony, and it’s honestly disgusting.

( Two more staff members arrive to address this dispute and Drake King looks at them in disgust. A waiter brings a jug of water and pours it into the cup for the EAW World Champion, while the waitress interrupts his sentence and hands a menu right towards him. )

Waiter: Welcome to The Chute—what would you like to have today, Drake?

Waitress: Bro, what you are doing. He is my client.

Waiter: Do you know how much money the EAW World Champion would tip? Sir, would you like to know what is special for Territorial: Invasion?

Drake King: (off-mic) :wtf: NO!! TELL ME WHERE IS IMPACT??!

Waiter: I am not at liberty to tell you where our boss is. We have pineapple pizza on special tonight. Would you like a slice?

Drake King: (off-mic) PINEAPPLE PIZZA? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? ASKING ME IF I WANT PINEAPPLE PIZZA IS ATROCIOUS AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A FELONY WHERE IS IMPACT? TELL ME NOW!

( Drake King grabs the waiter on the collar and throws him to the floor. After ripping the menu in half and clearing the countertop of everything, Drake King threatens to punch the waiters around him. All of a sudden, he feels a familiar pat on the back and slowly turns his head around. He sees Impact standing behind him with a tray of pineapple pizza in hand. )

Impact (off-mic): IDENTIFICATION, PLEASE?

Stew-O: OH!! IMPACT DEPOSITS THE TRAY OF PINEAPPLE PIZZA RIGHT ONTO HIS HEAD!! WE FINALLY SEE ACTION UNVEIL MORE IN THIS MATCH AS IMPACT AND DRAKE KING START EXCHANGING FIGHTS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CHUTE!! EVERYONE IN THE BAR STARTS RUNNING IN ORDER TO AVOID GETTING IN THE CROSSFIRE OF THIS ALTERCATION!! DRAKE KING STRUGGLES TO GET AN ADVANTAGE AND IMPACT BACKS HIM UP AGAINST THE COUNTERTOP!! AND A PUNCH TO THE FACE SENDS DRAKE KING FLYING OVER THAT COUNTERTOP!

Gavin Kirkland: Impact has started this match knowing exactly what he would do and Drake King needs to get out of this precarious situation. It is WET right now for Drake as he ends up stumbling shoulder-first into vodka and whiskey bottles as Impact reaches over the countertop and pulls on his hair! IMPACT HAS THAT BEVERAGE DISPENSER AND SWITCHES ON THE COCA-COLA TAP AND AIMS THE TUBE RIGHT AT DRAKE KING’S HEAD!! OH NO!! IT IS ABOUT TO GET EVEN WETTER AND MOST LIKELY STICKIER!

Persephone: ANYTHING TO BEAT THIS MAN UP!! IMPACT PULLS ON THE TRIGGER OF THE DISPENS-

Stew-O: DRAKE KING LEAPS OFF THE FLOOR, MUSCLES THE TUBE OUT OF HIS HANDS AND IMPACT GETS SHOWERED WITH THE COCA-COLA INSTEAD!! KING SCRAMBLES AND FRANTICALLY SWITCHES THE SETTINGS AND STARTS SPRAYING HIM WITH OTHER BEVERAGES! HE SPRAYS HIM WITH GUINNESS BEER FIRST, TRANSITIONS TO SPRITE, AND THEN FINISHES IT OFF WITH STRAIGHT LEMONADE TO THE EYES!! IMPACT SCREAMS IN PAIN BECAUSE GETTING CITRUS ACID FORCED INTO YOUR EYE SOCKETS IS FAR FROM RELIEVING!! IMPACT IS COVERING HIS EYES AS THIS COUNTER AS GOTTEN HIM THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY HE SO DESPERATELY NEEDS!

Gavin Kirkland: DRAKE KING BUSTING OUT ALL THE STOPS ONTO IMPACT LIKE HOW I BUST ONTO MY CAMILLE MANNEQUIN AT 4AM IN THE MORNING! IMPACT IS STILL TRYING TO GET THE ACID OUT OF THE EYES, AND HIS SIGHT MIGHT EVEN BE MORE DAMAGED BECAUSE DRAKE KING GRABS TWO CLEANING BOTTLES FROM THE CABINET AND AIMS IT AT HIM DOUBLE-HANDED! DRAKE KING HAS HAND SANITZER IN HIS RIGHT HAND, AND CLUTCHES A GERMICIDAL BLEACH SPRAY IN HIS LEFT!! AND HE SHOOTS IT AT IMPACT’S FACE!

Stew-O: IMPACT JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY, SNATCHES A RUBBERMAID CAUTION SIGN AND TOSSES IT AT HIS NOSE! DRAKE KING GETS CLOCKED IN THE FACE WITH THAT CAUTION SIGN AS IMPACT CONTINUES TO GRAB RANDOM THINGS ALONG THE WAY!! HE GRABS A FORK AND STICKS IT INTO HIS INJURED HAND, AND THEN PROCEEDS TO GRAB A BOTTLE OPENER!! WHAT THE HELL IS HE THINKING HERE?!?!

Persephone: I BELIEVE IMPACT IS GOING TO TRY AND OPEN BACK UP THE WOUND ON THAT SEVERED FINGER OF DRAKE KING BY USING A BOTTLE OPENER TO TUG AT IT!! OH MY GOD!! YES!! THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR!!! GRAB A CLEAVER KNIFE AND CHOP HIS ENTIRE HEAD OFF TOO IMPACT!! LETS GOO!!

( Impact attempts to pull on his amputated wound with a bottle opener. He applies pressure for a couple of seconds before Drake grabs a Corona Hombres branded beer and thrusts it into his left eye. )

Stew-O: IMPACT GETS THE TOP PART OF A BEER BOTTLE INTO HIS LEFT EYE! BOTH OPPONENTS JUST KILLING EACH OTHER!! IMPACT HAS BEEN TARGETING HIS HAND, WHILE DRAKE KING HAS BEEN GOING FOR HIS EYES. Drake gets a hold of a blender and turns it on! He picks it up and brings Impact’s head into it as it spins and spins! DRAKE REALLY IS TRYING TO MURDER HIM!! BUT IMPACT SECRETLY GRABS A MUDDLER FROM A DRAWER AND SMASHES IT INTO HIS GROIN AREA!! IMPACT GOES LOW—UNDERSTANDABLY SO—AS HE WAS ABOUT TO GET HIS FACE BLENDED INTO A FRUIT SMOOTHIE!

( Both members are extremely exhausted from their exchange. Drake King recovers from the groin shot while Impact gets out of the bar area and stumbles into the kitchen. )

Gavin Kirkland: Both Showdown and Voltage elitists make their way towards the Kitchen area—which I am surprised that I don’t see any of the women elitists there seeing they belong there. Impact is struggling to stand on his feet as he leans against the oven! AND DRAKE KING JUMPS THROUGH THE WINDOW, LANDS ON HIS FEET, AND SHOOTS FOR A SUPERKICK IN THE KITCHEN!

Persephone: WHAT!! NO!! IMPACT GRABS HIS FOOT AND PULLS HIS FOOT INTO THE DEEP FRYER AS A COUNTER!

Stew-O: NOPE!! DRAKE IS ABLE TO PUSH HIM AWAY WITH THAT FOOT, GRAB A FRYING PAN AND SMASHES IT ONTO HIS FOREHEAD!! DRAKE THEN FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A SMALLER FRYING PAN, AND DRIVES IT DOWN ACROSS HIS CHEST!! TALK ABOUT THE REAL DEAL OPEN-HAND CHOP AS DRAKE KING QUICKLY LOOKS AROUND THE KITCHEN TO SEE WHAT HE CAN USE TO HIS ADVANTAGE!

( Drake King pulls out a meat cleaver from a bottom drawer. He looks at it with a smirk on his face before turning his attention back to Impact. )

Persephone: IMPACT GRABS THE TOP REFRIGERATOR DOOR AND SWINGS IT OPEN TO HIT DRAKE IN THE HEAD!! KING UNFORTUNATELY DROPS THE MEAT CLEAVER TO THE FLOOR, NURSES HIS HEAD, AS IMPACT ATTEMPTS TO BRING DOWN THE FRIDGE!! WHAT IS THIS SORCERY!! AIN’T NO WAY HE IS GOING TO DO THIS!! IMPACT SUCCESSFULLY USES HIS STRENGTH TO BRING DOWN THE REFRIGERATOR!!

Gavin Kirkland: AND THE FRIDGE COLLAPSES OVER ONTO DRAKE KIN-

Stew-O: Drake King rolls out of harm’s way! Impact thought he had him as he sees DRAKE KING IMMEDIATELY SPRINGING OFF THE FALLEN REFRIGERATOR!! AND HE LEAPS INTO THE KITCHEN AIR AND CONNECTS WITH A PRECISION KNEE TO THE HALL OF FAMERS JAW!! IMPACT GOES REELING OFF THAT KNEE AND GOES BACK OF THE HEAD INTO THE BRICK WALL!!

( Drake King slowly emerges to his feet, steps over his body and pulls the freezer door open. )

( Impact continues to clutch his jaw as a result of that devastating knee strike. Drake King pulls him up and throws him into the freezer. The throw seamlessly—almost perfectly—transitions into Andre Walker tossing Theron Nikolas into the main entrance of the Lawton Room. )

[ Scenic titlebar: “THE LAWTON ROOM”. Paying homage to one of LSU’s notorious fan supporters, the Bill Lawton Room has been previously used for events such as football media availability, team meetings, and seminars. There is a state-of-the-art projection canvas for presentations with LSU memorabilia scattered along the seats. After getting divided, Theron Nikolas, Andre Walker, and Myles ended up making their way here and have already begun clashing right in the concourse in front of the room. ]

Stew-O: Theron Nikolas was just tossed into the Lawton Room as Andre Walker and Myles clash in the doorway. We momentarily take our attention off Drake King and Impact as we concentrate on what is happening between these three individuals. Theron Nikolas is using the wall to get up to his feet while Andre Walker and Myles remain to exchange lefts and rights! Walker with a left! Myles with a right! Walker with a right! Myles with a right! MYLES BLOCKS HIS LEFT, KICKS HIS CHEST, STOMPS ON HIS TOE, KICKS HIS HEAD IN AND THEN CONNECTS WITH A KNEE STRIKE!! NO!!! WALKER HOLDS ONTO HIS KNEE AND PULLS HIM SOLELY TO HEADBUTT HIM ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD!! Myles stumbles into the Lawton Room where he bumps into Nikolas! NIKOLAS TURNS HIM AROUND AND FLOORS HIM WITH A MONEY MAKER PUNCH!

Persephone: Nikolas reaches into his pockets and brings out a pair of brass knuckles. Andre Walker sees him bring them out and gets his sprint to a full speed stop. Theron shows off his brass knuckles as he slides it into his fists, while Myles backs off and pulls himself up the handrail. Nikolas is ready to throw fists—along with Myles as well—but Andre Walker insists on walking towards the fire alarm! What in the almighty is the Samoan robot thinking here? Is he going to summon that hammer Mjolnir or whatever these nerds talk about these days?

( Andre Walker punches a glass case and grabs an emergency fire axe. )

Stew-O: You can notice both of Theron Nikolas’ and Myles’ eyes subtly dilate as Andre Walker randomly decided to bring that first aid hatchet into the fold! All three individuals stare into each other for a couple of seconds BEFORE THERON NIKOLAS AND MYLES DECIDE TO TEAM UP ON ANDRE WALKER!! WALKER GRABS THE AXEHANDLE AND USES THE UTMOST POINT OF IT TO THRUST IT INTO BOTH OF THEIR MIDSECTIONS! MYLES FALLS TO THE GROUND WHILE THERON NIKOLAS IMMEDIATELY GOES BACK TO THE OFFENSIVE ATTACK!

Persephone: ANDRE WALKER CHOPS NIKOLAS’ HEAD WITH THE HATCHET!! IT IS COUNTERED AS NIKOLAS GRABS THE AXEHANDLE AND STOPS HIM FROM CONNECTING!! BOTH INDIVIDUALS HAVE ENGAGED IN BASICALLY A TEST OF STRENGTH WITH THE HATCHET AS MYLES IS JUST KICKING IN THE HANDRAIL!! WHAT THE HELL IS HE THINKING?

( Myles kicks in the handrail, breaks off one of the vertical beams and wields it in his hand. )

Gavin Kirkland: THIS IS WEIRDLY INNOVATIVE AS MYLES HOLDS ONE OF THE RAILINGS IN HIS HANDS!! AND HE STABS IT INTO THE MIDSECTION OF THERON NIKOLAS!! AND HE WHIPS HIM IN THE MIDSECTION ONCE MORE!! MYLES JUST PEPPERING AWAY WITH THE RAILING AS ANDRE WALKER EMERGES TO HIS FEET WITH THE AXE!! AND HE LOOKS LIKE HE IS READY TO THROW IT!! WHAT THE FUCK!?!?

Persephone: ANDRE WALKER TOSSES THE AXE AND IT GOES RIGHT IN BETWEEN THE FOREHEAD OF MYLES!

Stew-O: CLOSE CALL!! MYLES DUCKS IT AND THE AXE GETS STUCK INTO THE DRYWALL!! WALKER IS WITHOUT A WEAPON AS MYLES UNLEASHES THE HAND RAILING INTO HIS STOMACH!! MYLES JUST HAMMERING AWAY ON BOTH INDIVIDUALS BEFORE HE DROPS IT AND TAKES THE FIGHT FURTHER INTO THE LAWTON ROOM!! Myles slams open the door and it reveals the entire lecture theatre.

Persephone: Myles with a smile on his face as he grabs Theron Nikolas and picks him up into a powerbomb! AND HE DECIDES TO THROW HIM DOWN THE FLIGHT OF STAIRS!

Stew-O: THERON NIKOLAS COUNTERS IN MID-AIR AND MYLES GOES DESCENDING DOWN THE THEATRE STAIRS WITH A HURRICANRANA!! PERFECTLY TIMED COUNTER THERE BY ONE OF THE GREATEST WORLD CHAMPIONS OF ALL TIME AS NIKOLAS FOCUSES HIS ATTENTION ONTO ANDRE WALKER! Theron Nikolas connects with a couple of punches to the face here and there before holding onto his arm and IRISH WHIPPING HIM TOWARDS THE STAIRS!

Gavin Kirkland: Theron Nikolas was intending on IRISH WHIPPING him down those long descending stairs, but Andre Walker is too powerful as he pulls him back in! AND HE BLASTS HIM WITH A HUGE HEADBUTT TO THE FACE!!!! Theron Nikolas is staggered here as Walker jumps and steps off the wall! WHAT IN THE WORLD!! AND HE CONNECTS WITH THE KAISER’S TOUCH THAT SENDS NIKOLAS STUMBLING DOWN THE STAIRS INTO THE DIRECTION OF MYLES!! ANDRE WALKER USING THAT SUPERMAN PUNCH TO TAKE DOWN SHOWDOWN’S NIKOLAS AS HE SPREADS HIS ARMS AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRCASE!! THE KAISER IN FULL STRENGTH HERE AS HE GRADUALLY MAKES HIS WAY DOWN THE STAIRWELL!

Stew-O: Andre Walker picks up the pace and quickly walks down the steps to get a hold of Myles. Theron Nikolas is resting in a front seat while Walker pounces onto Myles with a ground and pound! He just unloads onto him with lefts and right forearm smashes before he picks him up and AIMS TO THROW HIM INTO THE PROJECTOR SCREEN!! NO!! MYLES DIGS HIS FEET INTO THE GROUND AND NAILS HIM IN THE MIDSECTION WITH A BLOW!! AND THEN KICKS HIS FACE IN FOR GOOD MEASURE!! WALKER IS DOWN ONTO ONE KNEE AS MYLES APPROACHES THE TEACHER’S DESK!!

Persephone: Myles approaches the professor’s desk area and looks at what there is to offer—a widescreen monitor, next-generation computer, keyboard, and a can of pencils. Myles chooses to pick up the keyboard—inadvertently turning on the projector in the process and SLAMMING ANDRE WALKER IN THE BACK WITH THE KEYBOARD!! SOME OF THE UNIMPORTANT KEYS GO FLYING INTO THE AIR AS MYLES HOISTS THE KEYBOARD ONCE AGAIN AND SLAMS IT ONTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!! KEYBOARD WARRIOR ACTION HERE AND I AM SURE THE NECKBEARDS ARE WAITING TO INCLUDE THIS INTO THEIR WEIRD ASS PUNS!

Stew-O: Myles proceeds to hold two ball point pens into his hands and BURIES IT INTO THE COLLARBONE OF ANDRE WALKER!! ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING BEFORE HE GRABS OPENS UP THE DESK CABINET, WIELDS TWO BOOKBINDERS AT THE SAME TIME AND SANDWICHES HIS HEAD WITH IT!! Myles uses the professor’s essentials to his advantage here as he sits down on the chair and types on the keyboard.

( Myles hastily shoots up a notepad program on the computer and types in bold Arial font: NO ONE BUT NEW EDEN. The text projects onto the screen as Myles smirks at the sight of it. )

Stew-O: WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS!! MYLES RUBBING IT IN EVEN MORE AS HE GRABS ANDRE WALKER BY THE LINING OF HIS PANTS, GETS A HANDFUL OF HIS HAIR, AND TOSSES HIM FACE-FIRST ONTO THE PROJECT SCREEN!!! ANDRE WALKER GOES FLYING INTO THE SCREEN THAT READS “NO ONE BUT NEW EDEN” AND THAT IS IRONY AT ITS FINEST!!

Persephone: Myles continues to smash his head into the projection screen before he grabs the recovering Theron Nikolas from behind! WAIT A SECOND!! THERON NIKOLAS SMASHES A HARDCOPY OF A LSU BOOK ONTO HIS HEAD FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!! MYLES DID NOT SEE THAT COMING AS NIKOLAS NOW GRABS THE ENTIRE COMPUTER BOX!! WHAT IN THE WORLD—HE SMASHES THE COMPUTER BOX AND IT DISASSEMBLES ONTO THE BACK OF THE NEW EDEN FUCKFACE!! ABSOLUTE CHAOS HERE IN THE LAWTON ROOM!!

Stew-O: Nikolas with a look of relief on his face as he finally has this fight in his possession. He looks around the desk and hoists up the widescreen monitor! AND HE IS ABLE TO DRIVE IT AGAINST BOTH OF MYLES’ AND WALKER’S HEAD AT THE SAME TIME!! AND NIKOLAS IMMEDIATELY HOISTS MYLES INTO THE AIR!! HOLDS HIM UP IN A BODY SLAM POSITION!! AND LAWN DARTS HIM FACE-FIRST INTO THE PROJECTION SCREEN!!

Persephone: THE IMPACT OF MYLES’ OVERSIZED HEAD CAVES A HOLE INTO THE PROJECTION SCREEN, BUT IT SOMEHOW IS STILL WORKING!! Theron Nikolas strolls around to the desk and puts the keyboard back onto his desk and uses the projection screen as reference where to look. He types “Anyone BUT New Eden” on the screen before grabbing Myles again and TOSSING HIM FACE-FIRST YET AGAIN ONTO THE SCREEN—THIS TIME, THE ENTIRE SCREEN SHUTS DOWN AND GOES POWERLESS!!

Stew-O: Theron Nikolas looks around the scene, shrugs his shoulders and decides to turn his back onto his opponents. He walks towards the closet, crouches into it and just shuts the door behind him. Myles sees him hide in the closet in confusion as he goes to investigate. He is in pursuit of Theron Nikolas and he bangs on the closet! He tries to pull on it, but it seems Theron Nikolas has installed some mechanism on the fly to jam the door momentarily. Myles pulls on the door with the most energy that he has left in his body before ANDRE WALKER CONNECTS WITH A SHOOT KICK FROM OUTTA NOWHERE!

Gavin Kirkland: Andre Walker keeps him standing on his feet, maintaining his balance before turning his attention to the closet door. I, too, used to struggle with getting out of the close, so I understand the frustrations with Theron Nikolas right now. That gay streetwalker is too scared to publicize his sexuality out to the world when I think he should just be flamboyant with it like how Drake King is. Drake King has to be metaphorically in the closet now AS ANDRE WALKER OPENS THE DOOR AND SEES THERON NIKOLAS SITTING BELOW WITH A HUGE LAUNCHER ON HIS LAP!!!

( BAOW!!!!!! )

Persephone: THERON NIKOLAS SPRAYS RED MIST INTO THE FACE OF ANDRE WALKER!! ANDRE WALKER IS SCREAMING AND GROANING IN PAIN AS HE CAN’T SEE SHIT!! HIS VISION HAS BEEN FUCKED WITH THE RED MIST AS ANDRE WALKER JUST STUMBLES DOWN THE HALLWAY!! THERON NIKOLAS AIMS TO THE LEFT AND SHOOTS RIGHT INTO THE EYES OF MYLES!! BUT MYLES ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND STARTS SPRINTING DOWN THE HALLWAY AS WELL!!

Stew-O: WE ARE NOW IN A PURSUIT AS NIKOLAS IS CHASING MYLES, WHILE ANDRE WALKER IS TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM THE DRAMA AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!! All three individuals are going through the student dormitories hallways. A myriad of students come out of their residences and start cheering them on!

Persephone: Look at all these disgusting white men with their white slang! DISGUSTING! Andre Walker starts to run full speed ahead to the end of the dormitories before opening up the exit! NIKOLAS TURNS HIM AROUND AND HITS HIM WITH A FOREARM SMASH!! WALKER IS DOWN ONTO ONE KNEE AS NIKOLAS NAILS MYLES WITH A YAKUZA KICK TO THE JAW!! NIKOLAS NOW GRABS THE DOOR TO THE ESCAPE OUT OF THIS SECTION OF THE STADIUM, BUT WALKER SLAPS HIS HAND AWAY AND HITS HIM WITH A UPPERCUT TO THE JAW! WALKER NOW APPROACHES MYLES!

Stew-O: MYLES WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE JAW AND IT SOMEHOW SENDS WALKER FALLING THROUGH THE DOORWAY AND OUT OF THE STUDENT DORM AREA!! AND WALKER SLAMS THE DOOR LOCKED ON HIS WAY OUT AND NOW THEY ARE LOCKED INTO THE STUDENT DORM! MYLES AND THERON NIKOLAS ARE NOW TRAPPED INSIDE WITH ALL OF THE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS AS THEY BANG ON THE DOOR!

Gavin Kirkland: OH HOW I WOULD LOVE TO BE LOCKED IN WITH A ROOM FULL OF MALE ATHLETES!! IN ANGER, MYLES GRABS THERON NIKOLAS AND SMASHES IT INTO THE WALL!! MYLES JUST REPEATEDLY SMASHES THERON NIKOLAS’ HEAD INTO THE WALL UNTIL HE STOPS HOLDING ONTO HIM AND HE COMPLETELY SLIDES DOWN THE WALL!! MYLES MAY HAVE JUST KILLED THERON AS HE STARTS KICKING ON THE DOOR!! HE KICKS IT ONCE!!!! HE KICKS IT TWICE!! AND HE KICKS IT THRICE!! BUT IT IS TO NO AVAIL!!

Stew-O: Myles slides Theron Nikolas’ brass knuckles off his hands and starts squaring up with the door. Myles knows that kicking it wasn’t enough, so if punching through that hardened glass window can get him through, then he will do whatever it takes! MYLES GETS SOME DISTANCE!! BEFORE CHARGING IN AND PUNCHING IN THROUGH THE GLASS WINDO-

Persephone: WHERE THE HELL DID THE WALRUS COME FROM!?!

Stew-O: ALBERT HITCHMAN FIRES A GIGANTUS NET ONTO BOTH MYLES AND NIKOLAS, EFFECTIVELY GLUEING THEM DOWN TO THE GROUND TILES!! MYLES AND NIKOLAS CANNOT MOVE AS ALBERT HITCHMAN STAND OVER THEIR BODIES WITH A SMIRK ON HIS FACE!

Albert Hitchman: (off-mic ):trolls: Don’t mess with the Kaiser ever, EVE-

Persephone: NIKOLAS BREAKS OUT OF THE NET IN RECORD TIME AND CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE FACE OF ALBERT HITCHMAN!! PLAN FAILED AS HE OPENS UP THE DOOR AND CHASES IN PURSUIT OF ANDRE WALKER!! ALBERT HITCHMAN IS KNOCKED OUT COLD WHILE MYLES IS LEFT ABANDONED, TRAPPED IN A CORNER OF A ROOM!!

( It is a static shot from the doorway with Theron Nikolas running in the distance. Myles is trying to get through the net, but it is to no avail as it seems that he is out of commission for the rest of the match. )

( While the camera continues to statistically pan into Theron Nikolas sprinting towards Andre Walker, it jumps to a similar shot with LSU running back Corey Kiner taking a jog in the LSU Strength and Conditioning facility. “Take My Breath” by The Weeknd echoes throughout the building before it is immediately silenced as a door falls. All of the LSU Football roster turns their heads to see SOSA Henderson brawling with Minerva, while Visual Prophet hunts down Lethal Consequences towards the weights. )

[ Scenic titlebar: “LSU STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING FACILITY”. ]

Stew-O: The cameras have now taken to where the LSU athletes train and condition themselves. It seems this addresses the whereabouts of the four other lost elitists. Minerva and SOSA Henderson battle in one corner of the room, exchanging a variety of strikes on the running track, while Lethal Consequences and The Visual Prophet go at it towards where all the dumbbells and gym equipment is!

Gavin Kirkland: We focus on LC and Vizzy as VIZZY GRABS A 25 POUND PLATE AND THRUSTS IT INTO HIS MIDSECTION. He drops the plate and lifts up the 45 pounds and CHUCKS IT AT THE HEAD LC. LC DUCKS AND IT CRUSHES TO THE FLOORS AND HE JABS VIZ THROAT WITH ONE OF THOSE BARBELL COLLARS. LC USING ANYTHING HE SEES AS HE SEES SOMEONES STEEL WATER BOTTLE AND SMASHES IT ACROSS HIS HEAD! OUCH!

Persephone: LC rudely interrupts athletes trying to do bench presses by pushing them out of the way. LC grabs Viz by the head and sends him face first into the barbell! BUT THE PROPHET LEAPS OVER THE BARBELL! LC CHARGES INTO HIM, AND VIZZY SIMPLY GIVES A BARBELL A NUDGE OFF THE RACK TO THE LEFT INTO HIS MIDSECTION! VIZ WITH A FOREARM SMASH TO THE FACE AND LC IS NOW REELING TOWARDS THE DUMBELL RACKS!!

Stew-O: LC tips over a variety of weighted dumbbells off the racks onto the ground to try and throw him off guard. LC GRABS RESISTANCE BANDS AND ATTEMPTS TO SLINGSHOT IT WITH HIS FINGERS! LC MISSES AND GETS BLASTED WITH ANOTHER FOREARM SMASH COURTESY OF THE TEAM DYNASTY CAPTAIN IN CHARGE!!!

Persephone: The Visual Prophet grabs a barbell with combined 200 pounds on it as he carries it and hovers it over LC’s BODY! AND LC ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE VIZZY DEPOSITS IT ONTO HIM! PROPHET WAS ABOUT TO TURN HIM INTO FLAT STANLEY BY DROPPING MORE THAN TWO HUNDRED POUNDS IN THE WAY. TALK ABOUT A DISASTER AVOIDED AS THE BALD MAN PICKS UP A FIFTEEN POUND DISC AND SPINS AROUND!

Gavin Kirkland: LETHAL CONSEQUENCES ROTATES IN DISCUS THROWING MOTIONS AND HURLS IT TOWARDS THE PROPHET!!! He ducks the disc and it shatters the wide mirror behind them. LC MISSES PROPHET AS LC NOW LEAPS OFF A BENCH AND FLATTENS THE DYNASTY ELITIST WITH A LOU THESZ PRESS! LC JUST HAMMERING AWAY AT VIZ WITH LEFTS AND RIGHTS WITH THAT GROUND AND POUND!!

Stew-O: WE SHIFT THE FOCUS ONTO MINERVA AND SOSA HENDERSON AS WE SEE MINERVA CHOKING SOSA BY PULLING HIS HEAD ON A HANDRAIL! ONE OF THE REFEREES ARE ON SITE TO SEE WHETHER HENDERSON WILL TAP OUT TO THIS SUBMISSION HOLD THIS EARLY IN THE MARCH!

Persephone: WHAT THE? THE WANNABE THUG ESCAPES OUT OF THAT CROSSFACE WITH SHEER POWER!! HE KICKS HER IN THE CHEST, HOOKS THE SHOULDER AND HOISTS HER UP! AND PROCEEDS TO DUMP HER INTO THE RAILING WITH A RELEASE VERTICAL SUPLEX!! MINERVA BACK GOTTA BE BROKEN!!

Gavin Kirkland: NOOOOO!! WHAT DID MINERVA DO TO DESERVE THAT!! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AS SOSA HENDERSON NOW CLIMBS ONTO THE RAIL AND DOES SOMETHING SIMILAR TO A TIGHTROPE WALK!! AND HE LEAPS ONTO THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION WITH A CROSSBODY OFF THE RAILING!!!

Persephone: BUT MINERVA IS ABLE TO GET AHOLD OF AN LSU FOOTBALL HELMET AND SMASHES IT INTO HIS FACE IN THE NICK OF TIME IN MID-AIR!!! AN UNEXPECTED COUNTER AS MINERVA NOW PLACES THE HELMET ONTO HIS HEAD!!

Stew-O: MINERVA HOOKS THE ARM AND ELEVATES HIM INTO A SUPLEX POSITION! SOSA IS TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT WHEREAS MINERVA RESISTS THE KNEE STRIKES!! AND MINERVA DRILLS SOSA HENDERSON WITH BRAINBUSTER WHILE WAS HIS HEAD WAS IN THE HELMET!! IMAGINE HAVING YOUR BRAIN THRUSTED INTO THE CONCRETE WHILE IT IS BOUNCING AROUND IN A FOOTBALL HELMET IS JUST DEVASTATING!!

Persephone: IT IS BEAUTIFUL!! I THINK I AM TEARING UP FOR WHAT MINERVA JUST DID! SOSA HENDERSON IS TREMBLING AS IF HIS NECK IS BROKEN OR IS PARALYZED AND IT IS A SIGHT TO TRULY SEE! MINERVA KICKS THE HELMET OUT, WHERE IT ROLLS DOWN A FLIGHT OF STAIRS!

Stew-O: Minerva steps away from Henderson and starts approaching where LC and Vizzy are located! SOSA Henderson is barely able to make it up to his feet as he gingerly follows the National Elite Champion for revenge. Consequences and LC have indulged in a tug of war between a rope as they were trying to get too to whip the other with.

Gavin Kirkland: Ropes remind me of one of my biggest kinks! MINERVA GRABS A SMALL MEDICINE BALL AND CHUCKS IT RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF LC! LC GOES DOWN, RELINQUISHES HIS SIDE OF THE ROPE AND IT LEAVES VIZ WITH IT!! MINERVA SEES HIM APPROACHING WITH THE ROPES, JUMPS OVER VIZ, AND TURNS THE ROPE AGAINST HIM BY CHOKING HIM WITH IT!!

Stew-O: VIZ, HOWEVER, LIFTS HER UP ONTO HER BACK! A BRIEF MOMENT OF HESITATION FOR MINERVA TO CONTINUE APPLYING PRESSURE BEFORE SHE GOES BACK TO CHOKING!! BUT VIZ FIGHTS THROUGH THE SUFFOCATION AND SLAMS HER OVER AND OVER AGAIN INTO THE SHATTERED MIRROR! MINERVA EVENTUALLY LETS GO AND YOU CAN SEE THE MANY SHARDS EMBEDDED INTO HER BACK!!

Gavin Kirkland: LC GOES FOR LCR ONTO VIZ!! BUT CIZ GRABS AN LSU BRANDED BLOCKING DUMMY AND IT ABSORBS EVERY OUNCE OF THAT DISCUS ELBOW SMASH!! THE BLOCKING DUMMY EVEN GETS CONSEQUENCES REELING IN FRONT OF A CHIN UP BAR AS SOSA HENDERSON PUTS HIM BACK INTO THE FOLD!!

Persephone: SOSA HENDERSON SWINGS ON THE CHIN UP BAR AND LAUNCHES HIMSELF FORWARD TO EXPLODE ONTO THE BACK OF LETHAL CONSEQUENCES WITH A MISSILE DROPKICK! BOTH MINERVA AND LC DOWN AS TWO OF DYNASTY’S STAND TALL IN THIS ALTERCATION!!

Gavin Kirkland: The Visual Prophet and SOSA Henderson are the first individuals in this match to regroup as they are extremely exhausted. They whisper strategies into each other’s ears before they both get a hold of Minerva. Minerva is in huge, HUGE TROUBLE NOW!!

Stew-O: Prophet and Henderson just body her around! FOREARM SMASH FROM PROPHET!! SOSA WITH A RIGHT JAB TO MINERVA! PROPHET WITH ANOTHER FOREARM WHILE SOSA SWITCHES IT UP AND BLASTS HER WITH A PRECISE ROUNDHOUSE ON HIS FACE!! MINERVA IS GETTING DISSECTED BY TEAM DYNASTY.

Gavin Kirkland: THEY HOIST MINERVA UP INTO A DOUBLE SUPLEX!!

Persephone: NO!! LC COMES FROM OUT OF THE BLUE AND SWINGS A SMALL KETTLEBELL INTO THEIR MIDSECTIONS!! LC THROWS IT AWAY BEFORE HAMMERING AWAY AT THE PROPHET!! HENDERSON CRAWLS AWAY FROM THE SCENE AS THE ALL OUT BRAWL GETS AN ADDITION WITH NEW EDEN’S MINERVA!! THIS IS GETTING A CRAZY BABY!!

Gavin Kirkland: LC, VIZ AND MINERVA UNLOAD STRIKES ONTO ONE ANOTHER WHILE SOSA HENDERSON HAS SNUCK INTO A STORAGE CLOSET!! HE BRINGS OUT A MACHINE WITH WHEELS WHILE ALL THREE ELITISTS CONTINUE TO DUKE IT OUT!!

( Sosa Henderson mounts a football passing machine and aims it at all three individuals )

Persephone: HENDERSON FLOORS THE ENTIRE COMPETITION WITH FOOTBALLS TO THE FACE! HENDERSON WILDING WITH THE FOOTBALL MACHINE BEFORE MINERVA IS ABLE TO DODGE THEM LIKE THE MATRIX AND CLOCKS HIM WITH A JUMPING FOREARM SMASH.

Stew-O: SOSA let’s go off the machine and stagger towards a smith machine! MINERVA JUMPS ONTO HIM WHILE GRABBING THE PULL UP BAR AND USES IT TO FLIP HENDERSON OVER ONTO HIS BACK WITH A HURRICANRANA!! MINERVA THEN GETS AHOLD OF THE MACHINE AND GROUNDS THE PROPHET WITH THREE FOOTBALLS AS HE WAS ABOUT TO GET UP! AND MINERVA CONNECTS WITH A FOOTBALL TO LC’S JAW!!

Persephone: WAIT LC IS ABLE TO CATCH THE FOOTBALL AND THROWS IT INTO MINERVA’S FACE!! BOTH MINERVA AND CONSEQUENCES COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND IN EXHAUSTION AS ALL THREE COMPETITORS IN THE COMPOUND ARE ALL DOWN ON THE GROUND!!

[ Scenic title bar: Meat Freezer. A continuation of Drake King and Impact bar fight. )

( Meanwhile, it shows alternate angles of the whereabouts of other people. Lethal Consequences and The Visual Prophet are laid out in the sports facility while Minerva has escaped the facilities and is purposefully making his way towards Myles, who is still trapped under the net courtesy of Albert Hitchman. Andre Walker has aimlessly wandered towards the sports facility to where he is seen picking up and wearing a LSU football helmet. After saving Myles, both individuals tak a tight turn in the concourse and sprints towards The Chute. The final shot is SOSA Henderson and Theron Nikolas, who seems to be heading towards the gorilla position. )

Stew-O: We have made our way back to the bar fight between Drake King and Impact. Impact is being backed against the wall in the main freezer behind the Chute as DRAKE KING KICKS HIM IN THE STOMACH! AND THEN HE GRABS A HUGE GAVEL AND SMASHES IT AGAINST HIS MIDSECTION!! KING IS IN CONTROL HERE AS HE GRABS HIS HAND AND IRISH WHIPS HIM ACROSS THE COOLER!! AND IMPACT COMES CRASHING INTO A STACK OF CARDBOARD BOXES!! ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL!

Persephone: Impact is being dogged here in the freezer as Drake King looks around for more everyday items to weaponize!

( Drake King looks above him and smirks at the icicles hanging from the ceiling. )

Gavin Kirkland: Drake King with a maniacal smirk on his face as he stares right up at the ice penises! King hops and pulls down a long one. He stalks Impact from behind and SWINGS THE ICE DICK INTO HIS BACK!! BUT IMPACT TURNS AROUND AND SPLASHES SALT INTO HIS EYES!! DRAKE KING CAN’T SEE SHIT AS IMPACT GRABS AN ICE BLOCK!! AND HE DRIVES THAT PRISM INTO THE FACE OF KING!! KING DUCKS AND AN ICE BLOCK SHATTERS INTO THE WALL!! DRAKE TARGETS THE NECK WITH AN X-CHOP THAT GETS IMPACT INCLINED AGAINST A STEP STOOL!!

Persephone: DRAKE GRABS THAT GAVEL FROM EARLIER AND THROWS IT AT THE CEILING!! AND MULTIPLE ICICLES COME FALLING FROM THE CEILINGS AS THEY ALL DESCEND ONTO IMPACT!! IMPACT JUMPS OUT OF HARM’S WAY, CATCHING ONE OF THEM IN THE PROGRESS AND DRIVES THE ICICLE INTO HIS LEFT THIGH!! DRAKE DODGES IT AND GOES FOR A SUPERKICK!! IMPACT GRABS HIS FOOT, PULLS HIM IN AND SENDS HIM FLYING INTO THE WALL WITH A SNAP SUPLEX!!

Stew-O: Impact grabs him by the arm and uses it to pull the EAW World Champion up to his feet! IMPACT NOW IRISH WHIPS HIM AND SENDS HIM COLLIDING INTO THE ANIMAL CORPSE HANGING FROM THE CEILING!! WAIT!! DRAKE KING SLIDES BENEATH THE CORPSE, CIRCLES AROUND IT AND NAILS IMPACT WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! IMPACT IS STUNNED AS DRAKE NOW SPINS AROUND FOR A DISCUS FOREARM SMASH!! IMPACT BLOCKS IT WITH BOTH FOREARMS, AND THEN NAILS HIM WITH A CLEAN UPPERCUT TO THE JAW!! BOTH MEN ON THE VERGE OF COLLAPSE AS IMPACT NOW GOES FOR THE EVISCERATION INSIDE OF THE FREEZER!

Persephone: DRAKE KING HOLDS HIM THOUGH!! KING BLOCKS THE EVISCERATION ATTEMPT, HOLDS HIM UP IN THE AIR AND LOOKS TO DROP HIM ONTO ICE BLOCKS!! BUT IMPACT GETS OUT OF IT AND SLAMS DRAKE KING’S HEAD ONTO ONE OF THE ICE BLOCKS! HE GRABS HIS HEAD, STANDS CLOSE TO THE ICE BLOCKS AND DDT’S HIM ONTO THEM!! OH MY GOD!! SNAP DDT ONTO THE ICE AS DRAKE KING HAS TO BE OUT NOW!!

Stew-O: Impact is desperately trying to escape this freezer now as competing in these low temperatures are not the most ideal for a wrestler. Drake King is subconscious on a pallet of boxes while Impact reels into the door and pulls it ope-

Persephone: THE GINGERBREAD MAN AND DOLLAR GENERAL HAYLEY WILLIAMS HAS ARRIVED! MYLES ALONG WITH MINERVA IS BACK IN THE FOLD!! IMPACT SEES MYLES AND MINERVA STANDING IN FRONT OF THE DOOR AND GETS CLOCKED WITH A KNEE STRIKE!! MYLES WITH AN EXPLOSIVE KNEE STRIKE THAT HAS IMPACT REELING INTO THE FREEZER AS MINERVA GOES TO CHECK ON HIS COMRADE!! HOWEVER, IMPACT IMMEDIATELY RESPONDS BY THROWING AN ICE BLOCK TOWARDS THEM!! IT DOESN’T HIT ANYONE AS MYLES STEPS UP THE BOXES TO THE SIDE AND USES IT TO SPRINGBOARD HIMSELF TOWARDS IMPACT!

Stew-O: AND MYLES CONNECTS WITH THAT ROUNDHOUSE KICK IN MID-AIR!! Impact is down onto one knee while Myles turns his attention to the ice cream refrigerator! Minerva is nursing to the injuries of Drake while Myles rummages through the ice cream! AND HE BRINGS OUT AN ALL-TOO FAMILIAR ICE CREAM BRAND THAT AUSTRALIANS KNOW VERY WELL!!!!

( Myles holds up a huge box of Golden Gaytime ice cream. He smiles before circling Impact with it in his hand. )

Gavin Kirkland: IT IS GOLDEN GAYTIME—EVEN THOUGH IT IS ALWAYS GAYTIME FOR GAVIN KIRKLAND—AND NOW MYLES GRABS PROBABLY HIS FAVOURITE ICE CREAM!! AND HE DROPS GOLDEN GAYTIME ONTO HIS BACK!! BUT IMPACT GETS OUT OF THE WAY!!! HE GRABS MYLES AND THRUSTS HIM INTO THAT ANIMAL CORPSE!! MYLES’ HEAD COLLIDES WITH THE CORPSE AND IT HAS LAID HIM OUT FOR THE TIME BEING!!

Stew-O: MYLES JUST GOT PUT OUT LIKE A CANDLE WITHIN THE SNAP OF A FINGER AS HE IS UNCONSCIOUS OUTSIDE OF THE FREEZER!! MINERVA SEES THAT MYLES HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT AND TRIES TO GRAB AN ICICLE, BUT IMPACT BEATS HER TO THE CHASE AND KICKS HER AGAINST THE WALL!! IMPACT NOW GRABS DRAKE KING!! DRAKE TRIES TO FIGHT HIM OFF, BUT IMPACT GRABS AN ICICLE FROM EARLIER AND STABS IT INTO HIS INJURED ARM!! DRAKE KING GROANS IN PAIN AS IMPACT PULLS HIM OFF THE PALLET AND GRABS HIS LEGS!! AIN’T NO WAY HE IS THINKING THIS NOW!!

( Impact applies the Walls of Impact on in the middle of the freezer. )

Gavin Kirkland: YOU HAVE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!! IMPACT CINCHES IN THE DOUBLE-LEGGED BOSTON CRAB ONTO THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION SMACK DAB IN THE CENTER OF THE FREEZER!! MINERVA AND MYLES ARE NOWHERE TO BE SEEN TO HELP HIM OUT OF THE SUBMISSION MOVE AS WE MAY SEE THIS MATCH END WITH A SUBMISSION!! NOT ONLY DOES HE HAVE TO WORRY WITH ONE-THOUSAND POUNDS SITTING IN ON HIS LOWER BACK, HE HAS TO SURVIVE THE EXTREMELY LOW TEMPERATURES WITH HIS BODY RESTING AGAINST SHATTERED ICE!! THIS HAS TO BE IT NOW!

Stew-O: MYLES GETS UP TO HIS FEET AND DOMES HIM WITH ANOTHER KNEE STRIKE TO THE FACE! AND HE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER!! AND A THIRD! AND WITH FOURTH!! MYLES IS NOW OBLITERATING THE SHOWDOWN TEAM CAPTAIN AND THEN TOSSES HIM OUT OF THE FREEZER!! MINERVA GETS UP TO HER FEET AND HELPS DRAKE KING UP AS ALL OF NEW EDEN ARE IN FULL STRENGTH!! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT IMPACT DID NOT NEED AS HE HAS INADVERTENTLY FOUND HIMSELF IN A THREE-ON-ONE DISADVANTAGE!

Persephone: I believe the purpose behind Impact implementing those smoke bombs was to separate everyone and make the number games even, but now it has turned against him. Impact is in an extremely unfair position right now and he could use Theron Nikolas and Lethal Consequences more than ever in this match—However, none of that has been seen in quite a while. Lethal Consequences is still sleeping from that encounter in the facility, while Theron Nikolas is most likely still running away from Andre Walker at this point!

Stew-O: Drake King starts to gain consciousness. Minerva and Myles hold up Impact by his shoulders while King emerges to his feet and gets right into Impact’s face. He smirks before SUPERKICKING HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE!! AND ANOTHER SUPERKICK!! AND A THIRD FLUSH SUPERKICK TO THE JAW!! DRAKE KING IS JUST BULLYING IMPACT AT THIS POINT AS HE HAS NO INTENTION OF PINNING HIM!! MINERVA AND MYLES NOW PULL ON HIS ARM, AND SMASHES THE HALL OF FAMERS HEAD IN WITH SIMULTANEOUS KNEE STRIKES TO THE FACE!!

Gavin Kirkland: THREE ON ONE—JUST HOW I LIKE IT! These are unfavourable numbers’ games for Impact and something needs to be done real soon! After obliterating Impact, Myles and Minerva grab him by the arms as all of New Eden drags him across the hallway. Drake King is deciding to take this somewhere else as New Eden are possibly going to perform ball-and-cock torture on King! I hope we get close-up views of his hairy testicles because it would be interesting to see in this match! New Eden continues to disrespectfully drag Impact like how they treat their materialistic possessions as we now have received word that Theron Nikolas and SOSA Henderson are near each other at the gorilla position!

[ Scenic titlebar: THE GORILLA POSITION ]

Gavin Kirkland: Sosa Henderson gingerly makes his way through the hallways with intention to bring this battle to the squared circle. However, no one is there to bring the fight with him, so I don’t know what this dumbass is thinking of! SOSA Henderson looks for a table, takes off the cloth and reveals his trusty Car Jack beneath it! Henderson carries it with one hand and approaches the curtains-

Stew-O: THERON NIKOLAS COMES FROM BEHIND AND PUSHES HIM THROUGH THE CURTAINS!! THE CROWD POPS AS THEY SEE SOSA HENDERSON STUMBLING ONTO THE STAGE!! THERON NIKOLAS LOOKING LIKE HE HAS A BONE TO PICK AS STEALS THE CAR JACK FROM HIS HAND AND CHARGES INTO HIM!! SOSA HENDERSON IS ABOUT TO KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS WITH THE CAR JACK, BUT SOSA HENDERSON WITH A THRUST KICK TO THE SIDE OF HIS RIBS, AND HE THROWS HIM OFF THE RAMP!! AND THERON NIKOLAS GOES FACE-FIRST ONTO THE FRONT ROW BARRICADE!!

Gavin Kirkland: WE HAVE ENTERED CONCUSSION CITY SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THIS VERY MATCH!! SOSA HENDERSON RALLIES UP THE TIGER STADIUM CROWD IN ATTENDANCE BEFORE HE STARTS RUNNING ACROSS THE STAGE!! AND HE LOOKS TO LEAP ONTO THERON NIKOLAS AS HE IS BELOW HIM NEAR THE STAGE!! BUT THERON JUMPS ONTO THE STAGE IN THE NICK OF TIME AND STUFFS HIM WITH A SWINGING ENZIRUGI ON THE RAMP!! SOSA HENDERSON IS DOWN ON BOTH KNEES AS THERON NIKOLAS NOW HAS HIM IN POSITION FOR GOD’S REQUIEM!!

Stew-O: THERON NIKOLAS CONNECTS WITH THE REVERSE SWINGING STO!! NO!!! SOSA HENDERSON ESCAPES OUT OF HIS CLUTCH—STOLE YO BITCH!!! THE JUMPING CUTTER FROM OUT OF NOWHERE AS HENDERSON DRILLED HIM ON THE RAMP WITH STOLE YO BITCH!! NIKOLAS FALLS OFF THE RAMP AS HENDERSON NOW PICKS UP SPEED YET AGAIN!! IS IT SECOND, TIMES THE CHARM!

Persephone: SOSA HENDERSON LEAPS OFF THE STAG-

Gavin Kirkland: LETHAL CONSEQUENCES WITH LCR!! DISCUS FOREARM SMASH RIGHT INTO THE FACE OF SOSA HENDERSON IN MID-AIR AS HE IS OUT!! HENDERSON ROLLS DOWN THE RAMP AS CONSEQUENCES JUST SAVED HIS TEAMMATE FROM GETTING SQUASHED ON THE OUTSIDE FLOOR!! SOSA HENDERSON IS PROBABLY ASLEEP FROM THAT LCR AT THE END OF THE RAMP AS LC PULLS THERON NIKOLAS UP ONTO THE STAGE!

Stew-O: Lethal Consequences made it in time to luckily be the lord and saviour to Theron Nikolas as he pulls him onto the stage as he is bringing someone onto shore. Lethal Consequences and Theron Nikolas have reunited and all they need to complete the puzzle is Impact, who is being held captive by New Eden! Team Showdown is somewhat back together as Nikolas and Consequences brainstorm their next strategy on the stage. They need to think fast because SOSA Henderson is already crawling towards the apron.

( While Theron Nikolas and Lethal Consequences recover on the stage, Andre Walker is seen wearing a LSU Football Helmet as he silently climbs the staircase up to the stage. Across the stage, The Visual Prophet is also doing the same thing with a helmet around his head.)

Gavin Kirkland: OH NO… THERON NIKOLAS AND CONSEQUENCES NEEDS TO LOOK AT WHO IS AROUND THEM AS PROPHET AND WALKER ARE STALKING IN THE SHADOWS!! NIKOLAS AND CONSEQUENCES START TO PUT THEIR FISTS UP ON ALERT AS THEY CAN TELL THAT THE FAN RANDOMLY GETTING LOUDER ISN’T FOR NO REASON AT ALL!! NIKOLAS AND CONSEQUENCES ARE BACK-TO-BACK AS THEY KNOW DANGER IS IMMINENT!

Stew-O: THE VISUAL PROPHET EMERGES FROM THE SHADOW AND SPRINTS TOWARDS THEM!! HE TAKES OFF THE HELMET WHILE HE RUNS AND TOSSES IT AT CONSEQUENCES TO THROW HIM OFF!! AND PROPHET CLASHES WITH THERON NIKOLAS!! CONSEQUENCES TRIES TO ADD ODDS TO THE EQUATION AND PUSHES VISUAL PROPHET AWAY!

Gavin Kirkland: NO! ANDRE WALKER INTERCEPTS HIM AND SPLITS THE HALL OF FAMER IN HALF WITH HUNGER ON HILLSIDE!! ANDRE WALKER CONNECTS ON THE DOT WITH THE SPEAR WHILE HE HAS THE LSU HELMET ON AS HE JUST ABSOLUTELY OBLITERATED LETHAL CONSEQUENCES!! LETHAL CONSEQUENCES IS FUCKING DEAD AS NOW THERON CONNECTS WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE PROPHET!! NO!! PROPHET HOLDS ONTO HIS FOOT AND SPINS HIM AROUND!

Persephone: SOSA HENDERSON WAKES UP FROM HIS SLEEP AND HITS THE PUMP SUPERKICK ONTO THERON NIKOLAS!! NIKOLAS IS STUNNED AS ANDRE WALKER NOW LEAPS INTO THE AIR!! AND DRIVES HIS FIST INTO THE SIDE OF HIS FACE!! KAISER’S TOUCH TO THERON NIKOLAS AND THE FATASS PROPHET CHARGES IN!! AND DRIVES HIS ELBOW INTO THE FACE!! KISS TO THE HEAD CONNECTS!! THIS HAS TO BE OVER!! TEAM DYNASTY WINS!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Stew-O: MINERVA COMES FROM OUT OF NOWHERE AND PUSHES SOSA HENDERSON INTO THE COVER TO BREAK IT UP!! SOSA HENDERSON ACCIDENTLY BUMPS HEADS WITH THE VISUAL PROPHET AS MYLES TURNS ANDRE WALKER AROUND!! AND HE CONNECTS A RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW!! ANDRE WALKER FALLS TO THE GROUND WHILE SOSA HENDERSON TRIES TO FEND THEM OFF!! BUT MYLES WITH A KNEE STRIKE!! FOLLOWED UP WITH THE INVERTED DDT COURTESY OF THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION!! PARADISE LOST BY MINERVA AS TEAM DYNASTY JUST GOT TORN APART JUST LIKE THAT WITHIN AN INSTANT!

( While Minerva and Myles stand over Team Dynasty, Drake King is seen dragging The Visual Prophet through the crowd. King looks at all of the crowd in disgust as they boo at him with the utmost hatred in their hearts. Drake pushes Impact over the barricade and brings him into the squared circle. This is the first time we are seeing the Stadium Stampede being brought to the squared rifle. )

Stew-O: New Eden has laid waste to nearly everyone in this match. Impact almost had the upper hand against Drake King over in the bar until the rest of New Eden arrived and outnumbered him. They have rendered him unconscious and Drake King has brought this to the squared circle seemingly to prove a point. New Eden could have pinned Impact in front of the freezer, but he has chosen to conquer Impact right in the middle of the ring, where many of their biggest accomplishments have been earned!

Persephone: Drake King inserts Impact into the squared circle. Team Dynasty has yet to move a single inch from that assault earlier and this match is basically academic from here! I don’t know how this already happened! Myles and Minerva stay on guard around the ring while Drake King is crouched on the second turnbuckle. Impact is barely moving now as he gingerly emerges to his feet. DRAKE HAS THE HALL OF BUTCHER IN HIS SIGHTS!! THIS HAS TO BE IT!!

Stew-O: DRAKE KING STOMPS IMPACT’S HEAD INTO THE CANVAS!! JUDGEMENT DAY CONNECTS!!

Gavin Kirkland: EVISCERATION!!!!!! DRAKE KING DESCENDS RIGHT INTO THAT DOUBLE KNEE FACEBREAKER!!

Persephone: OH MY GOD!! A COUNTER THAT PROLONGS A MATCH THAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR FOUR HOURS AS IMPACT DOESN’T GO FOR THE COVER!! HE CHOOSES TO GET RIGHT UP AND JUMPS ONTO THE TURNBUCKLE!! AND HE SPRINGS OFF THE TURNBUCKLES AND DROPKICKS MYLES!! MYLES CRASHES DOWN ONTO MINERVA BELOW AS IMPACT JUST EVENED THE ODDS NOW!! IMPACT IS BACK IN THIS AS HE MAY SUCCEED WITH THIS COMEBACK!

Stew-O: IMPACT REFOCUSES HIS ATTENTION BACK ONTO THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION AND IMPATIENTLY WAITS FOR HIM TO GET UP TO HIS FEET!! IF IMPACT CONNECTS WITH THIS, THEN IT IS OV-

Persephone: MYLES SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING AND PUSHES HIMSELF AND IMPACT OVER THE TOP ROPE!! MYLES JUST TOOK HIMSELF OUT IN THE PROCESS AS MINERVA SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING AND LOOKS TO GO AERIAL!! Drake King continues to recuperate from the double knee facebreaker while Myles and Impact are on one knee on the ringside floor! WHAT THE HELL IS MINERVA THINKING HERE!! DO A TRIPLE ROTATION TOPE CON HILO!!

Stew-O: MINERVA RUNS RIGHT INTO THE LCR!! NO!! LC ALMOST ANNIHILATES THE NATIONAL ELITE CHAMPION WITH THE SPINNING BACK ELBOW!! MINERVA CHARGES INTO LC, BUT LC LIFTS HER UP AND SHE GOES FLYING ONTO THE RINGSIDE BELOW!! LC TURNS HIS ATTENTION BACK INTO THE RING!

( DING! )

Stew-O: DRAKE KING SMASHES THE RING BELL ONTO THE BACK OF LC’S HEAD!! THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION FROM OUT OF NOWHERE JUST CAVED HIS HEAD IN WITH THE RING BELL!!!

( Drake King now slides the ring bell under Lethal Consequences’ chin and reels into the corner turnbuckles. )

Persephone: THE WANNABE GOD STOMPS HIS FACE INTO THE RING BELL!!! JUDGMENT DAY CONNECTS ONTO THE BELL AS DRAKE KING ROLLS HIM OVER AND HOOKS ONE LEG!! IT IS OVER!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Stew-O: ALL OF TEAM DYNASTY JUMPS INTO THE RING AT THE SAME TIME AND BREAK UP THE COVER!! SOSA HENDERSON, VISUAL PROPHET, AND ANDRE WALKER EMERGE TO THEIR FEET AND CIRCLE DRAKE SMITH LIKE A PACK OF FERAL WOLVES THAT HAVEN’T EATEN IN DAYS! Myles and Minerva are still laid out from minutes ago and Drake King has a look on his face knowing that this is out of his control! Drake gets up to his feet and looks at his surroundings. Walker, Henderson, and Prophet are all beaten and battered up by what has transpired in this match!

Persephone: DRAKE KING CHARGES INTO PROPHET WITH A FOREARM SMASH!! WALKER AND HENDERSON FLANK HIM AND UNLEASH A FLURRY OF STRIKES ONTO THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION!! TEAM DYNASTY IS PUTTING THE WORK ONTO THE CHAMPION HERE AS THEY ALL SIMULTANEOUSLY KICK AND STOMP AWAY AT DRAKE KING!! THIS IS A MURDER RIGHT HERE!! THIS IS A PUBLIC EXECUTION OF THE REDEEMER!! THIS IS WHAT I LIKE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

( Minerva and Myles attempt to get into the ring to help Drake King, but Theron Nikolas and Impact grab their legs and fight them out of the ringside area and up the ramp. )

Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA AND MYLES TRIED TO GET DRAKE KING OUT OF THAT STICKY SITUATION, BUT NIKOLAS AND IMPACT INSTINCTIVELY STOPPED THEM FROM DOING SO AS BOTH DUOS DUKE IT OUT TOWARDS THE STAGE!! TWO-THIRDS OF NEW EDEN UNAVAILABLE TO HELP THE OTHER AS DRAKE KING IS IN DEEP DEEP TROUBLE HERE!! SOSA HENDERSON HELPS DRAKE KING UP TO HIS FEET WHILE ANDRE WALKER GETS READY FOR THE SPEAR!!

Stew-O: ANDRE WALKER WITH HUNGER TO HILLSIDE, TEARING DRAKE KING IN HALF WITH THE SPEAR!!

Persephone: DRAKE KING GETS SPLIT IN HALF WITH A SPEAR!! SOSA HENDERSON AND THE VISUAL PROPHET NOW DRAG HIM OUT OF THE RING. ANDRE WALKER FOLLOWS AS ALL THREE INDIVIDUALS GRAB HIM IN FRONT OF OUR ANNOUNCER’S TABLE!! WHAT ARE THEY THINKING HER!! HENDERSON AND KING HOISTS HIM UP BY THE SIDE WHILE THE PROPHET HOLDS HIM UP WITH A POWERBOMB!

Stew-O: AND TEAM DYNASTY ANNIHILATES THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION THROUGH THE ANNOUNCER DESK WITH A TRIPLE TEAM POWERBOMB!! OH MY GOD!! DRAKE KING HAS TO BE OUT!! THE VISUAL PROPHET FALLS IN COMPLETE AND UTTER EXHAUSTION WHILE SOSA HENDERSON AND ANDRE WALKER MAKE THEIR WAY TO THE STAGE! THE KING IS DEAD!!! THE REDEEMER IS NO MORE!!

Stew-O: MINERVA AND MYLES STUN BOTH SHOWDOWN ELITISTS ON THE STAGE WITH SUPERKICKS TO THE FACE!! AND THEN GO FOR SECONDS!! BUT ANDRE WALKER AND SOSA HENDERSON JOIN THE FRAY ON THE STAGE AND GROUND THEM WITH A FOREARM SMASH!! SIX PEOPLE PUTTING EVERYTHING ON THE LINE ON THE STAGE WHILE THE THE VISUAL PROPHET IS STRUGGLING TO BRING DRAKE KING BACK OUT INTO THE RING WITH ALL THAT DEAD WEIGHT AND EXHAUSTION!!

Persephone: SOSA HENDERSON GETS OUT OF THE CROSSFIRE AND BEGINS TO CLIMB THE SCAFFOLDING BEAMS!! MINERVA BATTLES WITH WALKER, AND MYLES SQUARES OFF WITH NIKOLAS AND IMPACT!! THIS HAS TO BE IT HERE AS VISUAL PROPHET ALMOST HAS DRAKE KING BACK IN THE RING!!

( SOSA Henderson stands fifteen feet up in the air on top of a scaffolding. Everyone below him continues to fight as Henderson begins to jump off. )

Stew-O: SOSA HENDERSON WITH A CORKSCREW SENTON OFF THE SCAFFOLDING ONTO EVERYONE BELOW!! HENDERSON FLOORS EVERY ONE OF THE ELITISTS THAT WAS DUKING IT OUT BELOW!! A DAREDEVIl, HIGH-RISK MANEUVER FROM THE FORMER EAW WORLD CHAMPION AS THAT EFFECTIVELY TAKES EVERYONE OUT, INCLUDING HIMSELF!!

Persephone: BACK TO THE RING AS LETHAL CONSEQUENCES RE-EMERGES AND PUSHES VIZ INTO THE RINGPOST!! FACE-FIRST GOES THE PROPHET AS LC IMMEDIATELY SLIDES HIM BACK INTO THE RING!!!! LC PULLS UP THE APRON SHEETS AND RETRIEVES A STEEL CHAIR AND BRINGS IT INTO THE SQUARED CIRCLE IN IT WITH HIM!! JUST END THIS MATCH ALREADY!! COME ON!! BASH HIS HEAD IN LC!

Stew-O: LC WITH A STEEL CHAIR TO THE BACK!! BUT IT DOESN’T TAKE VIZ DOWN AS HE STAYS DOWN ON ONE KNEE!! LC WITH A SUBTLE LOOK OF DISBELIEF ON HIS FACE AS HE SPINS AROUND!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER OF STADIUM STAMPEDE…. THE VISUAL PROPHET, SOSA HENDERSON, AND ANDRE WALKER—TEEEAAMMM DYNASTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!

( Bella Braxton’s voice echoes throughout the Tiger Stadium as everyone in the ring pops to the final three count of the match. “Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)” By Jimi Hendrix blasts through the speakers while The Visual Prophet sluggishly rolls out of the ring and sits on the apron. Team Dynasty refuses medical help and limps towards their Team Captain to join him in victory. Drake King is still laid out unconscious from the triple powerbomb, while the rest of the competitions continues to be subdued in result of SOSA Henderson’s daredevil stunt from earlier. )

Stew-O: And just like that, the first ever Stadium Stampede comes to a conclusion! Everyone in this match delivered with each and every one of their promises, but it is The Visual Prophet that is able to keep fully mentally and physically strong until the last stretch to where he would take the crown for himself. Lethal Consequences was on the brink of bringing the bragging rights to Friday nights, but The Visual Prophet had other plans and for the second year in a row, Dynasty fans rejoiced in yet another humongous victory for their brand!

Persephone: If Rexy Sexy was on a team this year, then this match would’ve ended very quickly. Eitherway, this match didn’t really have much of an involvement of pinning attempts until all three teams brought their disputes to that squared circle. All nine individuals used every square-inch of that stadium to their advantage and they are going to walk back to their locker rooms knowing that they just went through one of the most hellacious matches of their lives! Team Voltage almost won this match, but dumbass Drake King was too slow to get that cover and it cost him a hefty trip through that announce table.

Gavin Kirkland: New Eden was indeed on the premises of conquering the inaugural Stadium Stampede, but it was the heart and determination of Team Dynasty that couldn’t be outmatched. As Meat Stew said, Dynasty brings the bragging rights home for the second consecutive year in a row, and with that, it means there are huge implications for SOSA Henderson, Andre Walker, and The Visual Prophet come next Friday night!

Persephone: New Eden finally gets embarrassed on a major stage for the first time in a while and you can see how heartbroken they are. Well, all three of them are nearly unconscious, but you can tell that New Eden will definitely not let this event go and will be doing everything in their power to make up for the mistakes they made tonight!

Gavin Kirkland: The very same could be said about Team Showdown. Without a shadow of a doubt, Impact, Theron Nikolas, and Lethal Consequences held up their end of the bargains to the best of their ability. All three of them evidently arrived at the Stadium Stampede the most prepared, but at the end of the day, when it all comes down to these matches, it all comes down to who can take advantage of the other last and that is what happened here. When everything seemed fine for Showdown and New Eden, all came crashing down when Team Dynasty came to spoil their good times.

Persephone: I am so relieved that New Eden didn’t win this match because if they controlled Voltage for a month, I don’t know what would even happen to myself… I don’t even know where I am right now. This event was so fucking long and I think I was starting to hallucinate things towards the end of this match. ANYONE BUT NEW EDEN!!

Gavin Kirkland: Well, anyone but New Ede

Stew-O: Elite Answers Wrestling hosts yet another successful Territorial Invasion with a prosperous debut of the Stadium Stampede Match. Team Dynasty reigns supreme over anyone and everyone in this match!

( While Andre Walker, SOSA Henderson, and The Visual Prophet celebrate on the top turnbuckles, red fireworks begin to fire down from up the stage and down the rafters. Yet another year of Friday Night Dynasty taking the main event as they are the winners of the first ever Stadium Stampede. )

Stew-O: THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR TUNING IN TONIGHT!! WE ALL APPRECIATED YOUR COMPANY AND WE HOPE THAT WE PROVIDED THE BEST PRODUCT TO YOUR SCREENS POSSIBLE!! For Persephone, and Gavin Kirkland, and all the rest of our broadcast colleagues. GOODNIGHT!!

(A final shot is taken of the winners and the camera fades to black.)

( “Somebody Get Me A Doctor” by Van Halen crashes through the speakers here in the Phoenix Suns Arena as Dr. Bethany Blue walks out onto the stage. She’s wearing a casual attire here as she doesn’t have a match tonight, white tee-shirt, black leather bottoms and black designer sneakers, though the Empress of Elite crown synonymous with her big victory way back in January sits atop her head! Bethany receives a mixed reaction from the majority-American crowd within the arena tonight. She does her usual pose on the entrance ramp, with cameras cutting to the commentary booth as she begins walking down to the ring. )

Flannery McCoy: Here’s a woman who has had a curious past couple of weeks. We’ve seen her issues with Caroline grow and grow into something sinister; both women are past the line of going back and it seems inevitable they’re going to clash in Las Vegas, Nevada. After Bethany’s victory over Alex Myers last week, Caroline found the sweet spot with a superkick to the back of her head and put her down, allowing her to grab a microphone and send out a challenge!

Stew-O: Personally I can’t condone it you guys, there’s an alternative universe out there where Bethany and Caroline are still close friends, and that mentor / protégé relationship the two women had is stronger than ever! Things have fallen apart, but it’s not too late for Bethany to extend an olive branch tonight and apologize for being unprofessional!

Jake Mercer: Why the hell would Bethany be apologizing, Stew-O?! Caroline is like that nasty little cold that won’t go away! Bethany did everything in the book to end their partnership and truth be told? I’m worried for any future boyfriend’s Caroline may have because the woman cannot take no for an answer! She all-but has cost Bethany multiple matches in the last couple of weeks and attacking the reigning Empress of Elite last week was a step too far!

( Bethany pulls herself up onto the apron, posing and smiling out to the receptive crowd here in the Phoenix Suns Arena. She props herself into a standing position and enters the ring, sauntering over to the opposing side and gesturing for a microphone. Her theme music dies down as a ringside attendant hands off a microphone. Bethany brings herself into the middle of the ring and begins to address Caroline as the fans within the arena die down and listen. )

Dr. Bethany Blue: Really, Caroline? You’re really going to go on and attack me last week after all the selfless mentoring I’ve given you? I can’t wrap my head around it, truthfully. You don’t seem to understand what I did for you? Was because I saw potential in you. I saw the kind of competitor you could have been, the future you could have had in this company. Out of the good of my heart and the want to see women’s wrestling continue to thrive, I reached out because I knew I could have helped you. But all these words, was, could, all that potential that I saw is no longer applicable. Because since I kneeled down and gestured for you to climb on my back, since I reached a hand out and promised I’d help you succeed, you have done everything in your power to be a horrid student, an unpleasant patient and honestly? A pain in the ass.

Dr. Bethany Blue: I don’t know what convinced you to attack me after I beat Alex Myers last week in the main event of Dynasty. Maybe you felt like it was a good move, but it wasn’t. There’s taking calculated risks and then being damn stupid. Attacking me last week was stupid.
Dr. Bethany Blue: All I’ve ever tried to do was help you, Caroline. Because as I said, I thought you could have grown into a woman who’d carry this promotion on her back. Someone who’d go on to win Women’s Championships, Specialists Championships, a woman who’d have the chance to main event a Pain for Pride someday. But as weeks went by, you continued to flounder and while I liked you, I wasn’t going to strain my back and cost myself success to try and help you out of a rut. When I tried to cut ties, you whined. When I really forced myself to be mean to you, you just couldn’t take it. You begged and pleaded like a dog whimpering in the street and when you finally got the message? Well, you kicked me in the back of the head and challenged me to a match for Pain for Pride.

Dr. Bethany Blue: Did I light this fire beneath you, Caroline? Am I the cause of this descent into madness where you feel wronged? Because our split-up was handled with nothing if not grace and an extreme dosage of kindness. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sort of glad. You’re showing a fire and a passion I would’ve liked to have seen months ago. I’m just a little confused as to why you’re all pent-up and annoyed with me? On the broad surface of matters, attacking me is the dumbest thing you could have done, there’s levels between you and me, I’m at the top of the mountain and you’re struggling to put on your climbing boots without requiring help.

Dr. Bethany Blue: You didn’t live up to my expectations, so I wanted to stop helping you. I rationally had a million reasons for feeling like this and you couldn’t accept it.

Dr. Bethany Blue: What you should have done is stuck to your own lane. You should have sat down and taken some time to reflect. I’m honored that the thought of me leaving you, not being your teacher anymore, has brought out some passion. But you realize you pushed me and pushed me until I snapped, don’t you? I told you to back off, I told you to just let things go and for our friendship to end. But you kept poking the bear, you were like a cat with a ball of yarn and you kept putting your paws on everything I was involved in. You cost me matches, you embarrassed me in main event matches, you kept saying and doing the complete opposite of what I’d told you to do. You’re shocked I snapped? Get real for a moment, Caroline.

Dr. Bethany Blue: I know you’re young, but you’re not as stupid as you look. Someone in this promotion saw the same potential I saw and decided to hire you. You’re a rookie with little experience competing in the biggest promotion on the planet, so inside of you there is a fire and a potential waiting to be capitalized on. But you really need to apply yourself. Instead of self-victimizing and whining, acting like you’ve been hard done despite the fact I was so patient and kind to you, you could be chasing other matches, winning fights and cementing yourself as one to watch for the future. But here you are, chasing a high you don’t have the drive or the skill to ever capture. You’re mad that you kept messing up and I told you that. You can’t comprehend the fact you’ve let me, the people backstage and everyone in this audience down.

Dr. Bethany Blue: With all of that being said? Yeah, I’ll fight you at Pain for Pride, and I’ll teach you some lessons that’ll scar your career from here-on-out. Because I’m better than you’ll ever be Caroline. But I’m not just satisfied with an ordinary run-of-the-mill match. I want to chase history and I have the exact stipulation for me to do just that, so I’m upping the ante.

Dr. Bethany Blue: So I’ve been thinking up some ideas. We’ll be in Las Vegas after all, the peak of show business and entertainment. And this is Pain for Pride, if I’m going to fight you I’m going to need something far more enticing than simply beating you. I’ve spent some time on this and I think I’ve got something that is fair. I dub it, Medical Mayhem! It’ll be a No Holds Barred match, but instead of weapons? We’ll use medical equipment. I’m talking crutches, syringes, I may even whip you black and blue with a stethoscope. After some time, we’ll get in an ambulance and be transported to a medical facility. Then I’ll beat you all throughout there, too. The winner will be the first person to strap their opponent to a hospital bed. But, you’ll be out cold and needing medical assistance way before then. This is going to change your life Caroline, maybe the professional wrestling business isn’t for you. But for me? It’s just another day in the office.

( “Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond plays through the speakers to a positive reception! The crowd here are on their feet as Caroline comes out onto the entrance ramp! They’re singing along to her catchy theme song here, Bethany Blue meanwhile doesn’t look all too impressed with the reaction that Caroline has received. Caroline dons a peppy, less-than casual outfit in relation to her Pain for Pride opponent. As she begins making her way towards the ring that cheerful expression on her facial features drops! We cut to the commentary booth where Jake Mercer is incensed at the reaction that Caroline has gotten! )

Jake Mercer: Now what in the hell is this about? All it takes is blonde hair and a cool song for these people to forget their morals. I’m sickened! Truly sickened!

Stew-O: Caroline has always been a popular figure since she signed with the company, I don’t think her rivalry and issues with Bethany have changed that, Jake! She’s even managed to pick up a win or two over the last few weeks and was within touching distance of reaching the New Era Classic finals! For all Bethany’s talk, I don’t think Caroline has done too badly for herself given her lack of experience inside a wrestling ring.

Flannery McCoy: I’m curious to hear Caroline’s reaction to all of this, it’s not like she’s had the time to soak it all in. Sure, she set out the challenge. And she’s probably been thinking about this match as a possibility over the last couple of weeks. But still, there’s a strong difference between having Bethany Blue on your side, and having her against you. Not to mention this insane conjured-up stipulation that our resident Doctor has managed to come up with!

Jake Mercer: Who would have thought? You irritate our reigning Empress of Elite and she comes back twice as hard, upping the ante, with this new, crazy-sounding stipulation!

( Caroline isn’t as peppy and as receptive to the crowd as she has been in the past. It’s worth noting that Caroline is still a mere nineteen years old! She possibly hasn’t experienced the pressures and politics that comes with this business to this degree before. But, she still manages to smile and show her appreciation as she gets into the ring. She and Bethany have a tantalizing, filled-with-tension staredown. Caroline walks back Bethany and gestures for a microphone from ringside. Once her request is granted, she begins to speak. )

Caroline: You know Bethany, that stipulation sounds amazing! I don’t think any of us were expecting you to come out here, constantly talk about yourself, say the same things that you’ve said for the last month and then announce something that totally centers around what you like and where your strengths are at. Dr. Bethany Blue being self-centered and only caring about herself? This is totally the first time I’m seeing this and I’m really taken by surprise ! : D

Caroline: Seriously, though. Did you expect me to be your punching bag? Were you expecting me to just take and take the abuse, physical, mental and emotional, that you were throwing at me? You were relentless, Bethany. For someone with your education, you should know it’s not okay to do what you did to me. I may be young, I may not be the most amazing wrestler in the world but I know a bully when I see one. I finally realized that taking your shit, being under your thumb wasn’t worth it anymore. You say that I made a mistake? No, I stood up to you and showed the world that the woman who hides behind health tips is no more than a coward!

Caroline: You come out here and drag my name through the mud. You insult me, belittle me time-and-time again. You attacked me, beat me down and humiliated me. What were you expecting to happen, Bethany? I respect you as a wrestler, I do, maybe I could have progressed faster and learned more than I did from you. But I’m sorry, I’m sorry that you took me for nothing more than some clay you could mold and tighten to your benefit. Because I’m my own woman, I got into this company without your help and despite what you say, I know for damn sure I can succeed within it without your help, too!

Caroline: You’re an amazing competitor, Bethany. But I’m not going to sit down and shut up if I think something isn’t right. I stand up for what I believe in, some way or another I’m going to show you that you’re wrong to belittle me. I don’t care about the stipulation, I don’t care if I have one hand tied behind my back. What I have is heart, guts, fearlessness. I’m more talented than you give me credit for. Against Sierra at Reckless Wiring, I showed that I can adapt to the climate around me and use it to benefit me. So you may be under the belief you know better than me and are going to dominate me at Pain for Pride. But I don’t need to be a Doctor, I don’t need to know all these techniques, terms and what a piece of equipment does to pick it up and beat it into your skull over-and-over again!

Caroline: I’m really excited for the opportunity, the opportunity to show up, show out and knock you down a couple of pegs. Because I am going to, Bethany. I’m going to do just that and shock not only Las Vegas, but the world at Pain for Pride! I know I have it in me to do that, you can play down my hype, my skill set and my potential. But there’s a reason you invested in me and it’s because you know someday soon I’m going to be a world-beater.

Caroline: What if that day comes a lot sooner than you think it will? What if, at Pain for Pride, I beat you, in your stipulation, will you take back all the awful things you’ve said and done? You know, despite all the shit, all the name-calling and back-stabbing, the beatdowns and sadness. I know it’s a huge opportunity for me to face you, and I hope when I do beat you, when I show all that perseverance and talent that you’ve credited me with, you’ll realize you messed up.

( Caroline lowers her microphone and she and Bethany exchange some words that aren’t picked up in either of their devices. Abruptly, Caroline extends an arm out… To offer Dr. Bethany Blue a handshake? Caroline mouths something to Bethany, who in turn looks around the crowd to pick up on the hopefulness and cheering emanating in the Phoenix Suns Arena. Caroline is nodding her head, a smile creeping back onto her face. Bethany extends a hand out… To push Caroline’s own back down to her side! Bethany scoffs, shakes her head and brushes past Caroline and vacates the ring. She disappears behind the curtain, leaving Caroline disappointed and staring at the canvas of the ring she stands in. Eventually, Caroline too leaves the ring. She shrugs shoulders, having tried to squash their personal problems but Bethany wasn’t having it whatsoever. From here, we cut to the commentary desk to give an overview to what we’ve just witnessed before we transition elsewhere for the next segment in the show. )

[SCREENBAR: CLASH OF KINGDOMS 2021 – ANDRE WALKER VS. BRONSON DANIELS; INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP]

(Inside the ring stands Stephie Love, dressed appropriately for the occasion and with a microphone in hand, she announces the next match-up!)

Stephie Love: The following singles match is scheduled for one fall, and it is for the INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

(‘Rockstar’ by N.E.R.D. begins to play and the crowd ignites into boos for the challenger as he makes his way out with Albert Hitchman trailing after him, the two of them taking a moment to stand on the stage before starting down the aisle.)

Stephie Love: Introducing first, the challenger, making his way to the ring from the Isle of Samoa… weighing 245 pounds…. being accompanied to the ring by Albert Hitchman, he is “The Notorious Kaiser” AAANNNNNDDDDRRRRREEEEEE WAAAAAALLLLLLKKKKKKKEEEEERRRR!!!!!

Stew-O: Andre Walker and the Interwire Champion, Bronson Daniels, have quite the history coming into this match tonight and with the success that Andre’s seen in his career here in EAW, adding the Interwire Championship to his collection of achievements would be something amazing for him to accomplish tonight!

Jake Mercer: And I’m sure he will! Andre’s been on a wave of momentum and while people will question how he got this match, Andre is someone that can be counted on to deliver no matter the circumstances! I read all about it in his new book: 100% Pure & Unquestionable Samoan Greatness!

Flannery McCoy: While something tells me Barnes & Noble isn’t carrying that novel, what can be said is that Andre Walker absolutely comes in exuding this aura of someone that knows how great they are and how much greater they can be; he’s certainly got all the makings of a future Hall of Famer but he’s got a challenge on his hands tonight!

(Andre enters the ring while Albert remains outside, when ‘Runnin’ by 21 Savage & Metro Boomin begins to play and Bronson Daniels comes out with the Interwire Championship raised up over his head!)

Stephie Love: And his opponent, making his way to the ring from Brooklyn, New York… weighing 210 pounds… he is the current Interwire Champion….. BRRRRROOOOOONNNNNNSSSSOOONNNNN DAAAAAANNNNNNIIIIIEEEEEEELLLLLLSSSS!!!!

Stew-O: Bronson Daniels has made it known that he’s felt like Andre Walker has gotten a lot of praise and acknowledgement over him – The Visual Prophet seemingly leading everyone on to believe that Bronson had been who he’d pick to be a part of his team at Territorial Invasion, being one of those examples – but there’s no mistaking that Bronson is a beloved fan favorite who’s going draw attention to himself no matter what situation he’s in!

Flannery McCoy: Absolutely! Bronson has become someone that the fans look to and he’s shown that he’s dedicated, unwavering and that kind of attitude has won him over huge with the EAW fans! While he may feel overlooked, Bronson is someone capable of showcasing why he shouldn’t be slept on and has all the ability in the world to take things to next level like he’ll certainly have to tonight in order to retain over Andre!

Jake Mercer: Assuming he even does, Flannery! Bronson has a lot of fighting spirit, sure, but he’s not Andre Walker and while everyone else is all too willing to give Bronson the benefit of the doubt, it’s gonna take a miracle on his part to win tonight!

(Bronson enters the ring with the Interwire Championship raised and the referee has to keep the two of them separated as they engage in a stare down. The both of them clearly understand the moment and how serious it is for the both of them, and once the referee hands the title off to ringside, he calls for the bell!)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: Bronson and Andre circle the ring here at Clash of Kingdoms, determination seen in both of their eyes, AND NOW THEY GO TO LOCK UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! BRONSON TRYING TO OVERPOWER ANDRE AND BACK HIM UP IN THE DIRECTION OF THE ROPES, BUT ANDRE BEGINS TO FORCE HIM BACK! ANDRE WALKER GETS BRONSON DANIELS AGAINST THE ROPES, NEITHER OF THEM TRYING TO BREAK AS THE REFEREE COMES OVER TO WARN ANDRE THAT HE’LL HAVE TO BE THE ONE LET GO AS BRONSON IS THE ONE ON THE ROPES-

Jake Mercer: Andre backs off- JUST TO SLAP BRONSON ACROSS THE FACE :mjlol:!!!!

Flannery McCoy: BUT BRONSON SLAPS HIM RIGHT BACK! Andre’s head turns to the side and he brushes the hair that’s fallen in his face away from obstructing his vision, somehow looking collected even after that and I wouldn’t want to be Bronson right now :lupe:!!

Stew-O: ANDRE REELS BACK AND THROWS A HUGE RIGHT HAND BUT BRONSON DUCKS AROUND BEHIND HIM AND SHOVES HIM FORWARD INTO THE ROPES! BRONSON USING THE MOMENTUM TO PULL HIM BACK AND DOWN TO THE MAT IN A ROLL-UP FOR THE EARLY PIN!!!

ONE!

Jake Mercer: But a kickout just after one, Andre forcing Bronson off of him and turns over only for Bronson to dive over him in an oklahoma roll!

ONE!

Flannery McCoy: Andre with another kickout and they race to get up! Bronson grabbing the legs and pulling them out from under Andre, sending Andre falling to the mat before flipping over into a bridging jackknife pin!

ONE!

Stew-O: But Bronson struggles to hold him down beyond a one count as Andre is already bridging upward off the mat! Bronson was trying to keep Andre off his feet here in the early going and understandably so, Andre’s a powerful athlete, a calculating individual- AND ANDRE SPINNING OUT AND STRIKING BRONSON DANIELS DOWN WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF THING BRONSON WAS TRYING TO AVOID!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson is a fighting Champion though and he’s made that known, showing it here as he’s already moving to get up to his feet but Andre grabs his head and pulls him right into a knee lift! Andre drives his knee into Bronson’s gut before running him over to the corner and bouncing the defending Interwire Champion’s head off the top turnbuckle! Bronson’s got no time to retaliate as Andre starts unleashing on him with a series of kicks and stomps in the corner, just completely taking control of the situation while Albert Hitchman looks on in delight!

Jake Mercer: The referee comes over shouting at Andre to bring the action out of the corner but the ring official finds himself completely ignored here at the moment, while Andre continues the vicious assault in the corner! The ring official now shouting out about starting a count that would disqualify Andre- BUT ANDRE SNATCHES BRONSON DANIELS UP AND LAUNCHES THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION OUT THE CORNER WITH AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!!!

Flannery McCoy: BRONSON DANIELS GETS SENT FLYING THROUGH THE AIR AND HE COMES CRASHING DOWN TO THE MAT! BRONSON RUSHING AS FAST AS HE CAN TO TRY TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, AND HE TURNS AROUND INTO A RUNNING SHOULDER TACKLE THAT KNOCKS HIM BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A THUD! BRONSON ROLLS HIMSELF OVER AND ANDRE CONNECTS WITH A WICKED KICK TO THE FACE THAT KEEPS HIM DOWN!

Stew-O: Andre makes his way over to a stunned Bronson and grabs him by the hair as he brings him off the mat, the referee calling out the hair-pulling while Andre absolutely clubs the hell out of Bronson’s back with that forearm shot! Walker slamming his arm down again into the upper back of the Champion after a knee to the face and then pulling him up with his head tucked down, ANDRE NOW LIFTING BRONSON UP ABOVE HIM AND ANDRE GETS A RUNNING START FOR A CRUCIFIX POWERBOMB! ANDRE THROWS BRONSON DOWN FROM OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND BRONSON GOES PLUMMETING TO THE RING MAT!!

Jake Mercer: Bronson hits the mat hard and the force behind that throw has Bronson folding in on himself with his legs going to his head until he’s ended up turning onto his stomach! Andre seeks to keep his hold on the match going as he makes his way over to Daniels and stomps down on the back before dragging Bronson to the middle of the ring, hauling the Champion off the mat and into the air with Bronson upside down in position for a suplex, and Andre falls forward with Bronson’s torso colliding with the canvas! Andre now with the cover; a new champion :blessed:!!!!

ONE!

TWO!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson’s shoulder comes up off the mat but neither Htichman nor Andre look bothered, Walker instead focusing on dominating this match as he pulls Bronson up and whips him off into the corner where he connects with a corner clothesline! Bronson’s head snaps back from the brutal impact thrown into that! Andre pulls on the arm and whips the Champion across the ring into the opposite corner-

Stew-O: BUT BRONSON DUCKS DOWN OUT THE WAY THIS TIME! ANDRE WENT LOOKING FOR A SECOND CLOTHESLINE AND BRONSON BETTER ANTICIPATED IT, ENDING UP BEHIND ANDRE AFTER WALKER HITS THE TURNBUCKLES AND THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION SWEEPS HIM OFF HIS FEET FOR A BACK SUPLEX!! BRONSON DROPS HIS CHALLENGER DOWN ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AND SITS UP GRABBING AT HIS SKULL, ONLY FOR BRONSON TO STRIKE WITH A LOW-ANGLE CLOTHESLINE; BRONSON SEES HIS WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY AND HE’S DETERMINED TO CAPITALIZE ON IT!

Jake Mercer: Bronson goes to get Andre up to his feet but it doesn’t come without a fight from Andre, who throws punches on his way up to a vertical base! He counters Bronson’s grasp and goes to whip him across the ring but Bronson holds on and twists under the arm- A MONKEY FLIP BY BRONSON TAKES ANDRE WALKER OFF OF HIS FEET! BRONSON IS ALREADY UP BY THE TIME ANDRE JUST HITS THE MAT AND BRONSON RUSHES PAST HIM AND TO THE ROPES, THE CHAMPION REBOUNDING OFF OF THEM INTO A METEORA TAKEDOWN WHILE HE’S GOT ANDRE SEATED ON THE MAT!!! BRONSON HURRIES BACK TO ANDRE AND GETS HIM UP, STRIKING WITH AN UPPERCUT BEFORE QUICKLY CONNECTING WITH A SNAP SUPLEX!!

Flannery McCoy: BUT BRONSON DOESN’T LEAVE IT THERE AS HE FLOATS OVER AND ENDS UP ON TOP OF ANDRE, PUNCHING DOWN AT HIS FACE! BRONSON ISN’T HOLDING ANYTHING BACK AND HOW COULD HE WITH SO MUCH TO PROVE?!

Stew-O: Bronson lets up and comes off of Andre to show he’s aware of the referee calling out the excessive use of the closed-fist- and he drops his knee right into Andre’s ribs! Bronson with a stomp directly down on the chest and he quickly takes Andre up into a side suplex! Walker ends up going to the corner to create some distance and looking for reprieve there- BRONSON CHARGES IN AND JUMPS TO CONNECT WITH A LEAPING CLOTHESLINE IN THE CORNER! BRONSON THROWING ALL OF HIS WEIGHT INTO THAT LIKE HE WAS AIMING TO TAKE ANDRE’S HEAD OFF! AND NOW A STEP-UP KNEE STRIKE FROM THE CHAMP TO THE CHALLENGER, BEFORE A SNAPMARE TAKES ANDRE DOWN TO THE MAT OUT THE CORNER AND BRONSON FOLLOWS UP WITH A JUMPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD TO FORCE ANDRE’S FACE TO THE MAT!! BRONSON ROLLING OFF AND INTO THE COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTWWWOOO!!!

Jake Mercer: But Andre is far from done as he kicks out!

Stew-O: That all certainly has to speak to, however, what Bronson sees this match as for him as the Interwire Champion and going up against the man who ended his New Breed Championship reign! Bronson wants to show that things are going to be different this time around and that history won’t repeat itself between him and Andre; Bronson is set on showing the world that he can be just as good, if not better!

Flannery McCoy: Being aware of the praise Andre gets over him has lit a fire under Bronson and I’m sure it’s going to play a significant role in Bronson closing this one out should he find himself with the chance!

Jake Mercer: Would a Samoan god really allow for that? :mjpls:

Flannery McCoy: How about you wait and see before singling anyone out this early on? :mjpls:

Stew-O: Bronson does know though that he can’t let this one get past him and that it’s critical for his reign continuing, which is why after Andre kicks out that Bronson is already back on him with blows over the head as he comes down with forearms! He’s got a hold on the hair and even Albert on the outside is shouting about it, only for Bronson to raise that middle finger in Hitchman’s direction!

Albert Hitchman: :picard:

Flannery McCoy: He looks appalled with the disrespect but I say that you get what you give, and now Bronson’s looking to return on all that he’s had to hear as he has Andre up and runs him into the corner- but Andre gets his foot up on the turnbuckles before Bronson can slam his head off them! He connects with a shot to the ribs to free himself and looks to strike with a punch to the face but Bronson blocks and kicks him back into the corner! Bronson dashes in after Andre and catches Walker’s foot just as he shot it up looking to get in a timely kick but Bronson’s reflexes are spot-on! Bronson grabs the other leg and lifts Andre out over the top rope and onto the apron, where Bronson goes to knock Andre down but Andre sidesteps him before shooting through the ropes looking for a shoulder thrust but Bronson gets him with a kick that leaves Andre hung over middle over the middle rope!

Stew-O: Bronson stands over Andre in a headscissor and grabs onto the top rope- ANDRE WALKER SHOOTS UP AND LAUNCHES BRONSON DANIELS OVER THE TOP ROPE AND OUT TO THE FLOOR BELOW!! A DISASTROUS FALL FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION JUST NOW AS THE CHALLENGER COUNTERED WHATEVER HE HAD PLANNED! BRONSON SOARS AND CRASHES IN A NASTY FALL THAT COMPLETELY TAKES HIM, AND EVERYONE WATCHING, BY SURPRISE!!!

Jake Mercer: Definitely wouldn’t want to be Bronson Daniels right now. But Andre Walker? :drakelike:!!! Andre rises up from between the ropes and looks down to find Bronson still on the ground, struggling to crawl away to create what I’m sure he knows would be some vital distance, but Andre casually comes down from the apron and there’s a kick to the ribs that sends Bronson down to the ground! You can see what kind of pain he’s in as he has the detriment of the fall used against him, but I can’t imagine that Andre’s going to offer much room to breathe!

Flannery McCoy: Andre picks Bronson up from off the ground there at ringside AND NOW HE LAUNCHES BRONSON INTO THE BARRICADE JUST IN FRONT OF THEM! BRONSON CRASHES INTO THE GUARDRAIL AND THEN DROPS TO THE FLOOR, AND ANDRE BRINGS HIM UP JUST TO RUN HIM BACK-FIRST INTO THE RING APRON!! ANDRE PULLS HIM AWAY AND SENDS BRONSON BACK INTO THE BARRICADE AS A WAY TO TARGET THE TORSO, AND THERE’S ABSOLUTELY NO GIVE FROM THAT BARRICADE! Andre now pulling Bronson up over his shoulder with Bronson hardly in a position to fight back, AND ANDRE WALKER TAKES BRONSON HEAD-FIRST INTO THE NEARBY RING POST!! BRONSON HAS HIS HEAD BASHED INTO THE RING POST LIKE HE’S SOME KIND OF BATTERING RAM AND AND ANDRE JUST LETS HIM FALL OFF HIS SHOULDER, DOWN TO THE GROUND!!!

Stew-O: Bronson looks to be knocked out as Andre drags him up off of the floor and rolls him into the ring, Andre forcing Bronson to stand but he stumbles back into the ropes to keep himself up, only for Andre to connect with a huge chop across the chest! Andre then hitting a right hand to the gut and a backhand across the face as Bronson doubled over! Bronson still leaning into the ropes for support as he tries to get away but Andre is taking full advantage of this from the onslaught he created, clubbing Bronson over the back of the head now! He stomps on the back of the Champion’s knee to bring him down and Bronson goes down to a knee, practically being picked apart AS ANDRE GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND AND CONNECTS WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX THAT HAS BRONSON CRASHING DOWN ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AND BACK!!!

Jake Mercer: The inventor of the German suplex showing exactly why he’s so innovative and creative as one of the most ruthless in the game :wow:

Flannery McCoy: :mjpls: We’ll be needing a fact-check on this one, clearly, but it doesn’t take a fact-checker to see that Bronson is certainly in trouble as Andre Walker rolls over with his arms still around Bronson and brings them both to their feet, LAUNCHING BRONSON TO THE MAT WITH ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!!! BRONSON HAS HIS WEIGHT DROPPED DOWN ON HIM AS HE GETS FOLDED UP AND ANDRE HONESTLY MAKES IT LOOK EFFORTLESS! ANDRE NOW TURNING BRONSON OVER INTO THE COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTWWWOOOO!!!!

Flannery McCoy: But Bronson isn’t done as his shoulder shoots up off the mat, kicking out in time!

Stew-O: Albert Hitchman can be heard berating Bronson and telling him to give up, but for someone like Bronson, that’s certainly not going to be an option here in this fight!

Jake Mercer: That is until Andre forces him to give up 😤

Stew-O: That could very well end up being the case but it remains to be seen, as I’m sure Bronson is far from being done; it’ll take a lot to keep Bronson down and out!

Jake Mercer: I didn’t realize I was commentating with such blatant Bronson Daniels fans :mjpls:

Flannery McCoy: Andre doesn’t look fazed at all with dealing with Bronson’s fighting spirit, taking him up from the mat while looking down on him with just such disdain before launching him across the ring into the corner! Bronson tries to get himself up to his feet after hitting the turnbuckles and he looks like he’s barely got the wherewithal to do so, AND ANDRE WALKER DOESN’T MAKE IT ANY EASIER AS HE COMES LEAPING AT BRONSON DANIELS WITH A HUGE SPLASH IN THE CORNER THAT TAKES BRONSON DOWN!! AND NOW ANDRE GOES AFTER HIM WITH MORE ATTACKS IN THE CORNER, REFUSING TO LET UP AND THAT COULD BE THE ATTITUDE THAT PROVES TO BE A GAME CHANGER FOR HIM IN PURSUIT OF THE INTERWIRE TITLE!

Stew-O: He certainly knows it, but the referee can’t allow for it to go on for much longer and tries to talk Andre out the corner and off the attack, which Andre complies with but clearly only out of necessity. He backs across the ring while Bronson is pulling himself up once again with the help of the turnbuckles, AND ANDRE GETS A RUNNING START BEFORE HE GOES JUMPING AT BRONSON AGAIN ONLY THIS TIME TO GET A KICK TO THE GUT! ANDRE COMES BACK DOWN ON HIS FEET DOUBLED OVER AND BRONSON STRIKES WITH A BACK ELBOW BEFORE HE PULLS HIMSELF UP WITH THE HELP OF THE TOP ROPE TO KICK ANDRE WALKER OUT TOWARD THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! ANDRE IS UNPREPARED FOR BRONSON CHARGING OUT THE CORNER AND TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE AND HE HAS TO QUICKLY ROLL OVER TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET BUT BRONSON KNOCKS HIM DOWN WITH A DROPKICK TO SEND HIM ROLLING TOWARD THE ROPES!

Jake Mercer: ANDRE PULLS HIMSELF UP WITH THE ROPES AND BRONSON RUNS AT HIM AGAIN ONLY TO BE LAUNCHED OVER THE TOP ROPE, BUT BRONSON HOLDS ON AND MANAGES TO LAND ON THE APRON! ANDRE SWINGS FOR A PUNCH BUT BRONSON LANDS A ROUNDHOUSE FROM THE APRON TO HAVE ANDRE STUNNED AND BRONSON SLINGSHOTS HIS WAY NOT ONLY BACK INTO THE RING BUT INTO A HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! ANDRE GETS SENT ROLLING ACROSS THE RING AND HE MANEUVERS HIMSELF UP ONTO A KNEE BUT BRONSON IS ALREADY ON HIM, CONNECTING WITH A RUNNING BLOCKBUSTER THAT DRIVES THE BACK OF ANDRE’S HEAD AGAINST THE CANVAS! BRONSON WITH THE PIN!

OOONNNEEEE!!!

TTTWWWOOOO!!!

Flannery McCoy: Andre powers his shoulder off the mat and Bronson wisely insists on keeping his momentum rolling by stomping down on Andre’s face! Andre tries to roll and get himself out of the way of any more immediate attacks but Bronson puts a stop to that in its tracks when he launches himself onto Andre’s back with a running senton to bring all his weight crashing down on him!

Stew-O: Hitchman on the outside looking frustrated with Bronson’s resiliency and determination, clearly having expected Andre to have dominated a majority of the match up to a point like this but Bronson has proven himself hard to plan for!

Jake Mercer: Maybe he just doesn’t understand, unlike the rest of us intellectuals, that Andre’s just being generous in letting Bronson be able to say that he at least put up a fight :wow:!!

Flannery McCoy: I somehow doubt that’s truly the case here, Jake, but it wouldn’t be the first time that you’ve insisted on letting everyone know that you’re wrong.

Jake Mercer: :skip: Rude! Everyone knows that I take my job very seriously and that I report nothing but completely unbiased, purely accurate information!

Stew-O: :mjlol:!!!

Flannery McCoy: :mjlol:!!!

Stew-O: But what’s nothing to joke about is how Bronson has managed to return this fire to Andre after it looked like Andre really had gotten his grasp completely on the match. Bronson with his knee dropped into the middle of Andre’s back while pulling back on the chin, making this a difficult submission to break with him being over the back! Andre’s reaching for the ropes and grabbing at Bronson’s hands, all in an effort to find a way out of this without having to waste more time than he’d like struggling to get Bronson off of him!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson seemingly changing attack strategies and going just a bit outside of what Andre Walker and Albert Hitchman might’ve been anticipating, but I’d expect nothing less from someone who’s determined to show that he’s learned plenty since they last went at with him as the defending Champion! Andre’s moving though and trying to shift up onto his knees to at least take some of that pressure off but Bronson sits down on his back, still pulling back on the chin and making it harder to breathe for Andre!

Jake Mercer: But Andre continues to prove that he is just too strong 😤!!! He continues to try to power through this, eventually managing to get up onto all fours with Bronson sitting on his back! Bronson starts hammering Walker down over the back of his head, no doubt trying to knock him off balance but Andre has made it to the ropes at this point and he’s using them to keep himself up! He’s still got Bronson on his back but he’s moving off his knees and to his feet, Bronson still coming down with those punches-

Stew-O: BUT ANDRE REACHES UP AND GRABS ONTO BRONSON’S HEAD, HOLDING HIM IN POSITION AS HE DROPS DOWN INTO A STUNNER! BRONSON’S FORCED TO LET GO AND HE ENDS UP FALLING BACKWARD TO THE MAT HOLDING HIS JAW, WHILE ANDRE’S FOUND HIMSELF WITH A MOMENT TO TRY TO SHAKE OFF THE ATTACKS FROM BRONSON!

Flannery McCoy: Andre’s back to the ropes in an effort to get himself up and Bronson is trying to collect himself off the mat, knowing that he can’t let this moment slip right through his fingers after all he did to get control of the match! The Interwire Champion pushes himself up off the mat and hurries himself over to an oncoming Andre, WHO LIFTS BRONSON OFF HIS FEET AND HASTENS ACROSS THE RING INTO THE CORNER, DRIVING BRONSON INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! ANDRE UNDERSTANDS THE URGENCY THAT HE’S FACING AS HE BURIES BRONSON IN THE CORNER WITH A REPEATED SET OF SHOULDER THRUSTS OBVIOUSLY INTENDED TO WEAR DOWN AND DETER BRONSON’S EFFORTS!!

Jake Mercer: The power and the quickness 🤤!!! Andre is clobbering Daniels in the corner and making sure he pays for putting him through what he just did, and I see this ending as well for Bronson as it did for the competition Andre dominated back during his extensive tour of Peru :wow:!!

Stew-O: :skip:

Flannery McCoy: AND NOW WITH A HOLD ON THE WRIST, ANDRE YANKS BRONSON DANIELS FORWARD AND UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, CONNECTING WITH A SAMOAN DROP THAT RATTLES THE RING WHEN HE FORCES BRONSON TO THE MAT! JUST LIKE THAT, ANDRE’S PUT A HALT TO THE MOMENTUM THAT BRONSON HAD SEEMINGLY REGAINED IN THIS MATCH!

Stew-O: Albert Hitchman couldn’t look more pleased with what we’ve all just witnessed and I can’t say that I blame him, when it just spoke to how aware Andre can be under pressure! He begins to make his way up to a vertical base while Bronson’s still on the mat recovering and in that vulnerable position, Andre grabs the right arm and pins it down to the mat by standing on Bronson’s hand before taking the left arm and falling to the mat to try to hyperextend the left arm! Bronson brings the arm close as soon as it is free of Andre’s grasp, shouting out in pain but Andre just hears that and goes right back to it, this time with a foot on Bronson’s head with it turned the opposite direction while he bends Bronson’s arm with the palm flat on the mat, THIS TIME STOMPING ON THE ELBOW AND BRONSON IS ROLLING ON THE MAT IN BLATANT AGONY WHILE ANDRE’S EXPRESSION SHOWS NO SIGN OF REMORSE!!!

Jake Mercer: We stan a Samoan with a take no prisoners attitude :wow:!!! And Andre merely stalks after Bronson while he’s rolled to the ropes still clutching at the arm, launching a kick to the ribs knowing that Bronson’s got no time to react! Bronson turns over against the ropes and Andre shoves his boot against Bronson’s neck, pushing him out under the middle rope as he’s choking him by standing on his throat! The referee hurrying over to start a count over the blatant illegality and Andre just stares the ring official down as he gets to four before finally letting up just dangerously close to five; that’s obviously a man who truly knows how to live on the edge :wow:!!!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson is clearly in more trouble than ever since this match got started and he obviously needs to think of something fast to get back in this; otherwise, Andre’s just going to walk all over him! Andre pulls Bronson away from the ropes and to the middle of the ring, striking the shoulder and arm with knee strikes to leave Bronson further defenseless before driving a swift knee to the gut that brings Bronson to a knee! Andre now lifting Bronson up off the mat and into the air!

Stew-O: “RIGAMORTUS”!! THE VERTICAL SUPLEX TRANSITIONED INTO THE MASSIVE SLAM TO THE MAT, DRIVING THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION DOWN ONTO HIS BACK AGAINST THE CANVAS SURELY KNOCKING ALL THE WIND OUT OF DANIELS!! ANDRE STAYING ON TOP FOR THE COVER AND THE RING OFFICIAL GOES SLIDING INTO POSITION!!!

OOONNNEEEE!!!

TTTWWWOOOOO!!!

TTTHHHHRRRREEE-

Flannery McCoy: Bronson’s still in this as he kicks out, but certainly worse for wear knowing the damage he’s just endured; retaining his Championship over Andre is something that’s just that important to him! He doesn’t want to have come this far just to lose or not be able to crack the perceptions between the two of them!

Stew-O: Andre’s definitely getting things going his way though and it’s not looking good for Bronson, who’s struggled here with Andre ever since Andre was able to find a way out of that submission Bronson had on him. Andre kicks Bronson over onto his stomach and reaches down from behind to wrap the Champion up into a rear naked choke, while still having Bronson down on the mat! Bronson finds himself being bent backward and trying to keep himself up properly on one hand while the other struggles to break the lock around his head, and Andre wrenches on the submission with Bronson denying the ring official’s questioning about wanting to give up!

Jake Mercer: I don’t see why he wouldn’t? 🤷‍♂️

Flannery McCoy: Because Bronson isn’t going to go out that way here, not when he’s clearly still got intentions of fighting!

Jake Mercer: He can’t fight if he’s been put to sleep and that’s exactly where he’s headed. 🤷‍♂️ Bronson is reaching out for the ropes like that’ll do anything to get them closer and Andre’s tightening that hold while Bronson’s down on the mat struggling- correction, trying to contort himself out from under Andre but Andre wisely turns with Bronson to keep him from getting anywhere out of this anytime soon!

Stew-O: Bronson’s starting to try to punch at the arm across his neck and maybe force Andre to break once he realizes that he won’t be tapping out or passing out, but Andre adjusts the grip and pulls Bronson right up onto his feet! Bronson gets yanked off the mat and just in front of Andre now, WITH ANDRE LIFTING BRONSON UP OFF THE MAT NOW- BRONSON BREAKS FREE AND COUNTERS INTO A VICTORY ROLL PIN!!!

OOONNNNEEEE!!!

TTTWWWWOOOO!!!

TTTHHHHRRRREEEE!!!!

Flannery McCoy: BRONSON BREAKS FREE AND ANDRE HURRIEDLY GETS UP TO HIS FEET LOOKING FOR BRONSON, CHARGING AT THE CHAMPION AS HE’S TRYING TO GET UP BUT ANDRE MISSES THE CLOTHESLINE AND BRONSON GOES AFTER HIM WITH A LOW DROPKICK TO THE KNEE JUST AS ANDRE TURNED AROUND! ANDRE GOES DOWN GRABBING AT HIS KNEE BUT BRONSON ISN’T LETTING UP, GRABBING ANDRE OFF THE MAT FOR A GUTWRENCH SUPLEX TO SLAM HIM DOWN ONTO THE MAT!

Jake Mercer: BRONSON STOMPS DOWN ON THE STOMACH TO FORCE ANDRE TO SIT UP AND CONNECTS WITH A SHOOT KICK ACROSS THE FACE TO STRIKE HIM BACK DOWN :noah:!!! BRONSON NOW SPRINGBOARDING OFF THE BOTTOM ROPE AND CONNECTING WITH AN ELBOW DROP DEAD CENTER ON THE FACE! ANDRE ROLLING OVER WITH A HAND PRESSED TO HIS FACE AS HE TRIES TO MOVE TO HIS FEET BUT BRONSON COMES DOWN FROM OVERHEAD WITH A LEGDROP BULLDOG TO TAKE ANDRE RIGHT BACK DOWN!!! ANDRE GOING TO THE ROPES BUT BRONSON STAYS AFTER HIM, NOT LOOKING TO LET HIM GET AWAY SO EASILY!

Stew-O: BRONSON BEGINS TO STOMP REPEATEDLY DOWN ON ANDRE WHO HAS TO TRY TO COVER UP, ALBERT HITCHMAN COMING AROUND TO THAT SIDE OF THE RING AND HIS YELLING FOR BRONSON TO STOP IS IGNORED BY THE CHAMPION! BRONSON ISN’T GIVING HIM A MOMENT TO BREATHE AND IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS, HE KNOWS IT’S NECESSARY! BUT NOW THE REFEREE BACKS HIM AWAY, THE OFFICIAL UNKNOWINGLY GIVING ALBERT THE CHANCE TO ASSIST ANDRE FROM THE RING!

Flannery McCoy: BUT BRONSON SEES THIS AND PUSHES RIGHT PAST THE REFEREE, GOING FOR A BASEBALL SLIDE BUT HITCHMAN PUSHES ANDRE OUT THE WAY AND THEY BOTH AVOID BEING HIT! BRONSON THOUGH SLID OUT THE RING AND ONTO HIS FEET, TAKING ANDRE DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE AND TURNING JUST IN TIME TO SEE ALBERT COMING HIS WAY! Hitchman backs away, hands raised out in front of him as if to show he had no malicious intent and Bronson warns him to stay out of it, knowing that him assisting Andre is how Andre got this match in the first place! Bronson turning back around to see Andre up on his feet with the help of the apron before coming after the Champion, ONLY TO GET SENT INTO THE BARRICADE FACE FIRST WITH A DROP TOE HOLD! ANDRE’S FACE BOUNCES OFF THE BARRICADE AND ALBERT HITCHMAN LOOKS WORRIED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS MATCH!!

Stew-O: AND FOR GOOD REASON, BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT THIS IS JUST THE KIND OF OPENING THAT BRONSON WOULD NEED TO CAPITALIZE ON! BRONSON GRABS THE CHALLENGER AND ROLLS HIM INTO THE RING, ANDRE STAGGERING UP TO HIS FEET AND ALBERT CAN ONLY WATCH WITH HIS HANDS ON HIS HEAD IN A PANIC! BRONSON IN THE RING NOW AND UP ON HIS FEET AS ANDRE TURNS AROUND WITH BRONSON HAVING GOTTEN A RUNNING START!

Jake Mercer: “CHROME HEART TAGS”!!! THE SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK CONNECTS AND ANDRE WALKER GOES DOWN!!! BRONSON COLLAPSES DOWN ONTO ANDRE FOR THE COVER!!!

OOONNNNEEEE!!!

TTTWWWOOOO!!!

TTTHHHHRRRREEEE!!!

Stew-O: A KICKOUT BY ANDRE WALKER!

Flannery McCoy: A look of relief has come over Albert Hitchman but that was clearly too close for comfort, but he should start gearing up for more, because Bronson’s got plenty left!

Jake Mercer: Again with this biased commentary. 🙄

Flannery McCoy: I’m just saying! Bronson is getting up to his feet and Andre’s stirring on the mat, trying to get himself up while Bronson is taking a moment to himself. Andre slowly coming up off a knee AND BRONSON GOES JUMPING ONTO HIS BACK! A SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB THAT HAS ANDRE WALKER’S HEAD CRACKING AGAINST THE CANVAS, BUT BRONSON DOESN’T GO FOR THE PIN! “THE LEBRONSON SPECIAL”!! HE’S GOT ANDRE TRAPPED IN A SPIDER TWIST AND HE’S LOOKING FOR A TAP OUT FROM ANDRE!

Stew-O: ANDRE’S STRUGGLING TO GET HIS ARMS FREE AND BRONSON’S HOLDING ON THE BEST HE CAN! BRONSON IS SHOUTING FOR ANDRE TO GIVE UP AS HE KEEPS APPLYING PRESSURE, ANDRE LOOKING TO BE IN SOME TROUBLE HERE WHILE ALBERT HITCHMAN IS SMACKING THE APRON AND TRYING TO WILL ANDRE INTO NOT GIVING UP! ANDRE IS ON THE MAT TRYING TO SHIFT AROUND WITHOUT THE USE OF HIS HANDS AND BRONSON HOLDING ON LIKE THIS ISN’T MAKING THAT ANY EASIER!

Jake Mercer: THE REFEREE IS IN ANDRE’S FACE ASKING IF HE WANTS TO QUIT, BUT I’M NOT SURE WHY HE’S DOING THAT WHEN ANDRE WALKER WILL ABSOLUTELY NOT QUIT! WHERE WAS ALL THIS PERSISTENCE ON THE REFEREE’S PART WHEN BRONSON WAS CLEARLY ABOUT TO TAP?! IT’S SICK, THAT’S WHAT IT IS!

Flannery McCoy: BRONSON’S CLEARLY GOT THIS APPLIED THE BEST HE CAN AND LIKE I SAID BEFORE, I DON’T THINK THEY WERE EXPECTING THIS TYPE OF OFFENSE FROM BRONSON WHEN A FAST-PACED STYLE WAS SURELY MORE ANTICIPATED! BRONSON SHOUTING AGAIN FOR ANDRE TO TAP BUT ANDRE’S REFUSING TO QUIT DESPITE BEING IN TROUBLE, ALBERT GRABBING THE BOTTOM ROPE AND PRACTICALLY DEMANDING ANDRE TO NOT SUBMIT-

Jake Mercer: ANDRE WALKER GETS A LEG ON THE BOTTOM ROPE THANKS TO ALBERT HITCHMAN PUSHING IT CLOSER TOWARD HIM INTO THE RING! THE REFEREE TURNING TO SEE THIS AS ALBERT POINTS OUT THAT ANDRE HAS HIS LEG ON THE ROPE AND THAT FORCES A BREAK! BRONSON RELUCTANTLY LETS GO- AND ANDRE GETS HELPED OUT THE RING AGAIN BY ALBERT!

Stew-O: Bronson wastes no time in leaving from the ring and pushing Albert out the way, sending him to the ground and focusing on Andre, sending him into the stairs! Andre stumbles back and Bronson comes up from behind, grabbing him by the head and slamming his face down off the top of the steps! Now the apron before sending Andre over the steps and to the floor right here in front of us! Bronson coming around the stairs and getting Andre off the ground, nothing but a determined hate on Bronson’s face as he looks to take him into the ring post-

Flannery McCoy: ANDRE WALKER COUNTERS AND WHIPS BRONSON INTO THE BARRICADE ACROSS FROM IT! Bronson hits the barricade and Andre staggers over to get his hands on Bronson but Bronson kicks him away, Andre won’t be deterred however and he comes right back after Bronson before Bronson punches him in the face! The referee still inside the ring telling them that they have to get back inside or risk a count out!

Jake Mercer: Neither of them is listening though as they trade blows on the outside! Andre firing back on Bronson but Bronson again with a kick that catches Andre off guard and he lands a forearm smash to have Andre staggering back from the barricade-

Stew-O: “HUNGER ON HILLSIDE”!!! THE SPEAR TO BRONSON DANIELS AND THE TWO OF THEM GO THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!! ANDRE WALKER TAKES BRONSON THROUGH THE BARRICADE WITH THAT MASSIVE SPEAR; THE POWER ANDRE THREW BEHIND IT TO SEND BRONSON’S WAY IS UNREAL!

Flannery McCoy: BRONSON CLEARLY WASN’T PREPARED FOR THAT AND NEITHER WAS ALBERT HITCHMAN, WHO I’VE NEVER SEEN RUN ANYWHERE SO FAST BEFORE AND HE’S TRYING TO CHECK ON ANDRE, BUT THE REFEREE WHO’S LEFT THE RING IS ADVISING ALBERT TO STAY BACK! I DON’T BLAME ALBERT FOR BEING CONCERNED BUT CLEARLY, ANDRE’S AT THE POINT WHERE HE’S WILLING TO TAKE SOME RISKS!

Stew-O: Which would only speak to how Bronson’s been able to stay in this fight and show that he’s prepared to go the distance, and Andre’s trying to find a way to keep him down! This might be it, as the referee stands over them and starts a count!

Referee: ONE! TWO!

Jake Mercer: Are either of them gonna be able to make it back up? :lupe:

Referee: THREE! FOUR!

Flannery McCoy: Andre Walker is beginning to stir but Bronson hasn’t moved a muscle since getting taken out, and Albert Hitchman is shouting for Andre to hurry and make it up!

Referee: FIVE! SIX!

Stew-O: Albert Hitchman comes around and assists in getting Andre up to his feet, the longest-reigning New Breed Champion in history looking a little lost but he finds Bronson and shoves past the referee, pulling Bronson up and throwing out from the wreckage of the barricade and to the ringside floor! Andre goes stumbling over to Bronson and having to pick him up once again, this time getting him into the ring and Andre rolls in, the referee coming in after them to make the count as Andre hooks the leg for the pin!!!

OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

TTTTHHHHRRRREEEEE!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: BRONSON DANIELS KICKS OUT AND HE’S STILL IN THIS MATCH!!!

Stew-O: Andre sits up shaking his head, clearly not having expected Bronson to make it out of the predicament with any more of a fighting chance, but everyone’s seeing now that Bronson Daniels shouldn’t be counted out!

Jake Mercer: :noah:!!!!

Flannery McCoy: But one other thing that Andre has going for him right now is that he definitely isn’t discouraged and no doubt already planning out his next move; he didn’t become one of the greatest New Breed Champions of all time for nothing!

Stew-O: And that’s something that came at Bronson’s expense, leaving Bronson to come into this match with this determination to show how far he’s come since these two last encountered one another with that New Breed Championship on the line!

Jake Mercer: Andre brings himself from off of the mat and takes his time getting to the corner across the ring from where he’s left Bronson, who’s slowly beginning to get up. Bronson turning over from off of his back and trying to will himself up while Andre’s staring him down from across the ring with a laser-like focus in anticipation! Bronson on unsteady legs as he finally comes to a vertical base! ANDRE COMES CHARGING AND GOES RIGHT AFTER BRONSON AS HE TURNS AROUND!

Flannery McCoy: “HUNGER ON HILLSIDE”- NO! BRONSON LEAPFROGS OVER ANDRE AND AVOIDS THE SPEAR AGAIN, AND ANDRE GOES HEAD FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! ANDRE IS DOWN ON HIS KNEES IN THE CORNER HOLDING ONTO HIS HEAD AFTER THE COLLISION!

Stew-O: “BITCH I KNOCKED YOUR HEAD OFF”!!! THE ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD KNOCKS ANDRE WALKER OUT AND BRONSON THROWS HIM DOWN TO THE MAT, BRONSON WITH THE PIN!!!!

OOOONNNNNEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTWWWWWOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTHHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEE!!!

Jake Mercer: ANDRE WALKER KICKS OUT BEFORE THREE!!!

Stew-O: Bronson just turned away from the cover with his hands to his head and he smacks the mat, obviously thinking he had this won but Andre showed him exactly why he shouldn’t go getting ahead of himself! Bronson sits up on his knees and shakes his head, looking to the referee for reassurance while Albert is on the outside cheering Andre on!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson takes a moment to collect himself and begins to nod his head, hyping himself up and knowing that they’re both about to have to go far to take the other out if either of them wants to finish this! Bronson going over to Andre and getting him from the mat, using his strength to get him to the middle of the ring!

Stew-O: BRONSON DANIELS HOISTS ANDRE INTO POSITION FOR “SAVAGE MODE”- ALBERT HITCHMAN CLIMBS UP ONTO THE APRON BEFORE BRONSON CAN FOLLOW THROUGH! Bronson shoves Andre down to the mat and marches over to Albert, yelling at him to get down and get the hell out the way! Albert seemingly doesn’t have a problem mouthing off right back as Bronson argues with him, and BRONSON REELS BACK READY TO STRIKE-

Jake Mercer: ANDRE GRABS THE ARM AND WHIRLS BRONSON AROUND! A KICK TO THE GUT- “APPLYING PRESSURE”!!! ANDRE WALKER TAKES BRONSON DOWN INTO A GUILLOTINE CHOKE AND HE’S GOT THE BODY SCISSORS APPLIED! BRONSON IS FLAILING ON THE MAT TRYING TO GET OUT BUT ANDRE IS DOING EXACTLY THE MOVE SUGGESTS, APPLYING AS MUCH PRESSURE AS HE CAN TO HAVE BRONSON EITHER TAPPING OUT OR SUBMITTING! THIS HAS GONE ON LONG ENOUGH IN HIS MIND, AND IF HE CAN FINISH BRONSON OFF HERE AFTER THAT HUGE STADIUM STAMPEDE WIN DYNASTY GOT, HE’D BE CAPPING OFF ONE HELL OF A MONTH!

Stew-O: And if there’s one thing we know about Andre it’s that he’s all about adding to his legacy in EAW and showing that he’ll have that lasting impact that has him as a frontrunner! Bronson may not like that it came with feeling overlooked in favor of Andre, but Andre Walker has definitely lived up to the hype!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson’s trying to fight through this and show that he isn’t to be overlooked like that anymore, that he brings plenty to the table himself and punching at Andre’s ribs is how he plans to continue that fight! It looks like Bronson might be gaining some ground on that- BUT ANDRE REASSERTS HIS DOMINANCE BY ADJUSTING THE HOLD AND TIGHTENING HIS ARM AROUND BRONSON’S NECK! BRONSON’S TRYING DESPERATELY TO KEEP FIGHTING, TURNING ON THE MAT AND ROLLING WITH ANDRE STILL ON HIM BUT ANDRE JUST SIMPLY WILL NOT BUDGE!

Stew-O: BRONSON IS ABSOLUTELY TRYING TO GET OUT OF THIS BUT IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S GETTING NOWHERE, BUT NOT FOR A LACK OF EFFORT ON HIS PART! ANDRE JUST SIMPLY HAS HIM TRAPPED IN THIS STRANGLING HOLD AND BRONSON, TO HIS CREDIT, HAS TRIED AND TRIED TO GET OUT OF IT TO NO AVAIL! ANDRE CALLING FOR BRONSON TO QUIT ALREADY BUT BRONSON ROLLS AGAIN AND THEY END UP WITH ANDRE BACK ON THE MAT AND BRONSON TRYING TO USE HIS LEGS TO PUSH UP OUT OF THE GUILLOTINE! ANDRE FORCES HIM BACK DOWN THOUGH AND BRONSON’S LEFT TO REACH OUT FOR THE ROPES NEARBY, AND ANDRE’S LEANING BACK INTO THE HOLD UNABLE TO SEE!

Flannery McCoy: BRONSON CAN’T REACH IT THOUGH WITH HIS HAND AND HE’S STOPPED SWINGING AT ANDRE, HE MIGHT BE FADING AND I WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED IF ANDRE FORCES HIM TO GO UNCONSCIOUS HERE! BRONSON’S SHIFTED OVER A FINAL TIME BUT CERTAINLY NOT IN REACH-

Jake Mercer: BRONSON HAS STOPPED FIGHTING! HE’S OUT! BRONSON DANIELS IS OUT BUT ANDRE WON’T RELEASE THE HOLD AS THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO FORCE THE BREAK! ANDRE WON’T LET GO- FINALLY HE DOES AND HE GETS TO HIS FEET, THE REFEREE SHOUTING AT ANDRE AND POINTING TO BRONSON-

Stew-O: BRONSON DANIELS HAD MANAGED TO GET HIS FOOT ON THE ROPE!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson getting his foot on the rope and not exerting anymore energy when he knew he’d caused a rope break has caught Andre Walker off guard, and the referee’s still on his case for not releasing the hold!

Stew-O: Meanwhile, Bronson is pulling himself from the ring with the bottom rope and he makes it to the outside, clearly in need of a breather and I don’t think there’s anyone who wouldn’t understand. Andre though, isn’t looking to let that happen and Albert sees that as his cue to go over to Bronson, trash talking him once again WHILE ANDRE GOES OFF RUNNING INTO THE ROPES AND DIVES OUT OVER THE TOP ROPE AT A DISTRACTED BRONSON-

Jake Mercer: BRONSON JUST PULLED ALBERT INTO THE WAY OF THE DIVE!!!!

Flannery McCoy: ANDRE COMES CRASHING DOWN ON ALBERT AND BRONSON MOVES OUT THE WAY, LEAVING ALBERT TO GET ALL OF THAT FROM ANDRE!!! ANDRE PULLS HIMSELF UP FROM THE BARRICADE IN THE CONFUSION OF IT ALL AND SEES ALBERT DOWN, WHILE BRONSON COMES TO GRAB HIM AND SEND ANDRE HEAD FIRST INTO THE RING POST!!! ANDRE GOES DOWN TO THE GROUND HERE IN FRONT OF US BUT BRONSON ISN’T DONE, SENDING HIM INTO THE FRONT OF OUR COMMENTARY TABLE!!!

Stew-O: BRONSON BASHES THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AGAINST THE TABLE, REPEATEDLY SLAMMING ANDRE’S HEAD FROM THE SOUND OF THOSE THUDS! Bronson comes up from being crouched down beside Andre AND STARTS CLEARING OUR COMMENTARY TABLE! BRONSON IS YELLING FOR US TO GET OUT THE WAY AND HE’S COMPLETELY STRIPPED OUR TABLE OF OUR MONITORS AND KNOCKING EVERYTHING OFF OF IT!

Jake Mercer: MY SODA :noah:!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson grabs Andre from the ground and gets him up, slamming his face off the commentary table and then rolling him onto it, clubbing his chest and punching him repeatedly in the face! Bronson is maiming the hell out of Andre right now! The referee’s come out the ring, trying to talk Bronson out of this but Bronson walks right past him and onto the apron, climbing over the to the turnbuckles and going up high! BRONSON DANIELS GETTING TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE-

Stew-O: A FROG SPLASH THROUGH THE COMMENTARY TABLE!! BRONSON DANIELS JUST DOVE FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND CAME CRASHING DOWN ON ANDRE WALKER, PUTTING HIM THROUGH THE COMMENTARY TABLE AND THEY’VE COME CRASHING DOWN RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF US!!!

Flannery McCoy: BRONSON DANIELS TAKING THESE KINDS OF RISKS AND CHANCES SHOULDN’T COME AS A SURPRISE, HE’S WANTED TO ELEVATE THIS INTERWIRE TITLE AND MAKE HIS REIGN MEANINGFUL – GOING THIS FAR AGAINST SOMEONE LIKE ANDRE IS SOMETHING THAT HE CLEARLY CAME PREPARED TO DO AND NOW, HE’S ONLY GOT TO ENSURE IT PAYS OFF!

Jake Mercer: Bronson comes rolling off of Andre with an arm hugged to his own ribs, clearly feeling that as well but he’s obviously going to do whatever it takes now! He’s taken out Albert, he’s just put Andre through the table after having been put through the nearby barricade himself – Bronson just might get it there!

Stew-O: Bronson makes it to the apron and pulls himself up obviously in pain and now he has to make his way back over to Andre while the referee is checking on Andre, but the Champion isn’t letting it happen for much longer as he grabs Andre up and rolls him into the ring under the bottom rope! Bronson rolling in after the referee and he watches on to drop down into the count the second he sees Bronson make the pin!

OOOONNNNNEEEE!!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!!

TTTTHHHHHHRRRRREEEEE!!!!

Jake Mercer: ANDRE WALKER WITH THE SHOULDER UP!!!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson Daniels looks like he’s at a loss for words right now, but I could honestly say the same seeing how both of these men are willing to lay it all on the line right now!

Stew-O: The Interwire Champion looks like he’s trying to keep himself collected right now and understandably so, he just threw a huge shot at Andre and Andre just saved the match for himself just after it! They might not know what it’s going to take but someone’s bound to give us an answer!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson makes his way up to his feet and tries to bring Andre up while hitting him over the back and throwing knees up at the midsection while he’s got him in a headlock, trying to make sure he stays in control of this match! But Andre starts landing shots at the sides of Bronson and trying to fight his way out! Bronson bringing his elbow down across the neck but Andre gets in a good gut punch, followed up with another and another and another until he’s freed himself and throws a huge right hand at Bronson! Bronson fires back and nearly takes Walker off of his feet only for Andre stay up and fire back! The two of them exchanging hands in the middle of the ring and neither of them is looking to give!

Jake Mercer: Bronson throwing a punch- ANDRE PULLS HIM DOWN INTO “APPLYING PRESSURE”- BRONSON SLIPS OUT AND STAYS ON HIS FEET WHILE ANDRE FALLS TO THE MAT! “FLYING BRONSONS”!! BRONSON COMES DOWN ON ANDRE WITH A BOOM DROP AND ANDRE GOES ROLLING AWAY TO THE CORNER! BRONSON GETS HIMSELF BACK UP AND GOES AFTER HIM, MEETING HIM IN THE CORNER BUT ANDRE FIGHTS HIS WAY OUT! LANDING AUDIBLE BODY SHOTS BEFORE CHARGING OUT THE CORNER AND TAKING BRONSON DOWN WITH A HUGE BIG BOOT TO THE FACE, FLOORING BRONSON!

Stew-O: Bronson turns over trying to get up just to get a jumping knee to the side of the head and he goes back down onto all fours, Andre looking to lift him up in a back suplex- BUT BRONSON DROPS DOWN ON HIS FEET BEHIND HIM AND TRIES TO STRIKE FROM BEHIND, ONLY ANDRE DUCKS AS BRONSON GOES FORWARD AND NOW WHIRLS AROUND IN A KICK TO THE CHEST THAT PUSHES HIM BACK INTO THE ROPES! BRONSON COMING OFF THE ROPES AND DUCKING A CLOTHESLINE! BRONSON CATCHING THE ARM THOUGH AND LIFTING HIMSELF UP INTO A HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN THAT LAUNCHES ANDRE TO THE ROPES!

Flannery McCoy: ANDRE PULLS THE ROPES TO GET HIMSELF UP AND BRONSON COMES CHARGING, GETTING LIFTED OUT ONTO THE APRON! ANDRE KICKS HIM IN THE GUT THROUGH THE ROPES AND GETS HIM IN A HEADLOCK, TRYING TO LIFT HIM UP FOR A POSSIBLE SUPLEX BUT BRONSON GETS HIS LEG HOOKED AROUND THE BOTTOM ROPE TO TRAP HIMSELF! ANDRE TRYING TO PULL AGAIN BUT BRONSON BLOCKS IT AND GETS ANDRE UP, SHOWING SIGNS OF STRUGGLE BUT FINDING THE STRENGTH TO GO LIFTING HIM OUT ONTO THE APRON! ANDRE MANAGES TO COME DOWN ON HIS FEET AND PUSHES HIS WAY OUT OF BRONSON’S GRASP! ANDRE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER BIG BOOT TO KNOCK BRONSON DOWN-

Jake Mercer: BUT BRONSON CATCHES THE FOOT AND ANDRE’S ON ONE LEG! ANDRE TRYING TO SWING BUT BRONSON KEEPS HIMSELF OUT OF REACH BEFORE FINALLY THROWING THE LEG DOWN AND LANDING A KICK TO THE GUT!

Stew-O: “SAVAGE MODE”!!! THE LIFTING UNDERHOOK GUTBUSTER OFF THE APRON!!! BRONSON TAKES ANDRE OFF THE APRON WITH THE SAVAGE MODE AND THEY COME DOWN ON THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!! THE REFEREE JUST WATCHED THE BOTH OF THEM PLUMMET DOWN BECAUSE OF BRONSON’S WILLINGNESS TO TAKE ANOTHER HUGE RISK!!!

Flannery McCoy: They’re both down on the ground and Bronson’s back is clearly bothering him after the beating he’s taken, and that fall didn’t help at all but the Interwire Championship means so much to him that he’ll do whatever it takes! Bronson crawling up to the barricade and slowly getting himself up and then going back to Andre, who he gets up and sends into the ring!

Stew-O: BUT HERE COMES ALBERT HITCHMAN BACK IN THE MIX! ALBERT COMING AFTER BRONSON BUT BRONSON SPOTS HIM! BRONSON WANTING NOTHING MORE TO DO WITH HIM AND NOW HE DROPS HITCHMAN WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE! Hitchman goes down and Bronson stomps him for good measure, before climbing up onto the apron from where he can see Andre stirring, AND NOW BRONSON SLINGSHOTS HIS WAY INTO THE RING-

Jake Mercer: “HUNGER ON HILLSIDE”!!! ANDRE WALKER CONNECTS WITH THE SPEAR, CATCHING BRONSON DANIELS MID-FALL AND HE JUST ABSOLUTELY FLOORS BRONSON RIGHT THERE ON THE MAT! ANDRE REACHES BACK AND HOOKS THE LEG, THE REFEREE MAKING THE COUNT!

OOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEE!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Rockstar’ by N.E.R.D. begins to play and the crowd goes into a frenzy of boos as Andre Walker rolls off of Bronson and onto his back, the referee bringing over the Interwire Championship!)

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER, AND THE NEEEEEEWWWWWWWWW INTERWIRE CHAMPION….. ANNNNNDDDDRRRRREEEEEE WAAAAAALLLLLKKKKKEEEEERRR!!!!

Stew-O: Andre Walker’s done it, defeating Bronson Daniels here at Clash of Kingdoms in a back and forth battle where it seemed like it could’ve gone to either man, but Andre Walker pulls it off!

Flannery McCoy: Bronson put up one hell of a fight and truly brought a battle that I can’t say either Andre or Albert properly anticipated, when there were certainly times where Albert had to involve himself! Bronson showed exactly why he shouldn’t be underestimated, no matter what anyone has to say!

Jake Mercer: All that really needs to be said is that we have a new Interwire Champion! This is just another Championship that Andre has taken from Bronson now, and even while Bronson did put up a fight, Andre Walker cements himself another accolade in EAW history! Is there anything this man CAN’T do?! :wow:!!!!

(Andre Walker is helped up in the ring by the referee and allows him to raise his hand before shrugging him away, Albert Hitchman entering the ring holding his jaw but pointing to Andre nonetheless for everyone to take notice of the new Interwire Champion! As Bronson is assisted from the ring, Andre climbs up onto the middle turnbuckle and raises the Interwire Championship with Hitchman shouting his praises for Andre as the scene fades out.)

(The show then transitions over to a pre-taped segment set in a black curtained room with murky lighting. The camera pans downward to show a large round table that’s seen setup familiar to how the Extreme Elimination Chamber round table before Road To Redemption 2021 was. There are seven chairs with the one at the head of the table revealed to be Jake Mercer, who smiles at the camera and is the only one in focus at the moment. He takes a moment before beginning to speak.)

Jake Mercer: Oh my, well, thank you for joining us here tonight. I’m sorry, this scene just reminds me of the time Hiroshi Yamamoto, a legendary wrestler known for his time in Japan, got kidnapped by a bunch of fans and recorded in a dark room with a table just like this one! It’s surreal I’m telling you…

(There’s an awkward silence that follows that and Jake taps his fingers against the table hoping to get a response, but he doesn’t and continues to speak like it doesn’t happen.)

Jake Mercer: Anyway we have an excellent roundtable session to get to tonight and I’m sure the participants are excited to get this underway. Pain For Pride’s Cash in The Vault 2022 match is shaping up to be one for the ages and considering the star power that will be participating in it I have no doubt that the fans at home are in for a treat come Las Vegas. But don’t take it from me, let’s hear it from the Elitists in the match as I mentioned previously. Let’s introduce them one by one, for starters, please give a warm welcome to Jay Jerry Johnson.

(The camera pans to the left of Jake to show Jay Jerry Johnson who is seen dressed head-to-toe in a fine Burberry-colored suit capped off with a pair of black dress shoes. He has those shoes propped up against the surface of the table while he leans back in his chair, having his arms crossed while he turns his attention from Jake to the camera, a smirk on his face while he does so.)

Jake Mercer: Next up, we have Jon Kelton.

(The camera then continues to pan over until Jon Kelton is in view. He has a white leather jacket over a designer shirt, paired with some black slacks and a pair of LeBron 9s. He glances at the camera with a nonchalant expression before looking down at the table.)

Jake Mercer: Following him we have Ronan Malosi.

(The camera continues to show Ronan Malosi, who is seen bowing like there was applause upon hearing his name. Today he has a pink floral button-down shirt on along with black dress pants and a pair of Jordan 1’s. He then points towards the camera and winks at it before blowing kisses to the invisible crowd.)

Jake Mercer: Ok then… up next we have Adam Lucas.

(The camera then goes on to show Adam Lucas, who is fitted with a black leather jacket over a grey t-shirt. Along with that he has denim jeans on and some dress shoes, and he takes a moment to scan the competition before looking towards the camera with a smirk on his face.)

Jake Mercer: Second to last we have my name twin Jake Smith.

(The camera continues to show Jake Smith, who has a Holly Arrow shirt from EAW Shop on along with some sweatpants and a pair of Vans checkerboard slip-on shoes. He waves towards the camera casually before bringing his hands behind his head and leaning back with a smile.)

Jake Mercer: Then last but not least, SOSA Henderson.

(The camera then stops at SOSA Henderson, who grins at the EAW Universe with a white leather jacket trimmed at the collar with grey fur. Along with that, he has some grey jeans on with a pair of Nike MAGs that follow. After the camera goes around the table it then goes back to Jake Mercer before panning outward to show everyone.)

Jake Mercer: Now that we’re through with the introductions, I think we can get some questions underway. Let’s go in order here, starting with Jay. I know a lot of people consider you the underdog coming into this matchup, but having watched some of your matches on the indy circuit back in 2016, I’m led to believe that they’re underestimating you? Do you share the same thoughts as I do?

Jay Jerry Johnson: I wasn’t even wrestling in… you know what, whatever. Yes, I do agree, a lot of the people not just in this matchup but everywhere else sees me as the odd one out. They don’t believe I’m going to win compared to everyone else in this match, saying I haven’t beaten this person or that person or won this title or this award. And while I can agree for the most part that I certainly don’t measure up, that doesn’t mean any of you can just step over me like I’m a piece of trash. This entire year I’ve broken my back for this company, I’ve given more than any of you have by a long shot and managed to get nothing out of it in the process. NOBODY has sacrificed and bled more than I have to get to this point. Cash in The Vault has been long overdue, getting MY moment has been long overdue. So one way or another, it’s going to happen, and it’s happening at Pain For Pride. I’m tired of just sitting by and letting it all happen, succumbing to defeat after defeat and pretending to be content about it all. Meanwhile, while all of that happens I’m forced to watch all of my peers pass me by. Something is going to change, I AM going to change my luck, and I’m going to end the Season as Mr. Cash in The Vault and walk into Season 16 as an inevitable World Champion.

Ronan Malosi: :mjlol2: You got jokes, kid. Unfortunately for you, we’re not buying what you’re selling, now shut up and let the men speak.

SOSA Henderson: Why the fuck you speaking then?

Jay Jerry Johnson: :francis:

Jake Mercer: :whoa: Guys, we’ll all have our turn to speak. Let’s move on to our next subject, and that’s Jon Kelton. Kelton, this Season has undoubtedly been your best since your return to Elite Answers Wrestling and I’m sure you’re looking to end it with a bang by winning Cash in The Vault. There’s a lot on the line and you know that having been in this same match last year, do you have any doubts on your mind?

Jon Kelton: :russwtf: Fuck kinda question is that?

Jake Mercer: I just meant-

Jon Kelton: You know what, forget about it. I always believed that, no matter how much enjoyment I got out of it, I was above the New Breed Championship. I had a great reign, I basked in the glory of being a Champion, all that fun stuff, but once all that wore off… then what? What was I left with after that? Subpar competition that barely dipped their toes into the water? The Danny Tanner’s, the Angelo Carter’s, the Xerxes Godfrey’s, where was the benefit in that? Facing that type of competition brought me down to that level, and made people believe that my ceiling was the New Breed Championship, something I should’ve grown out of years ago. Once again, there was an immense amount of satisfaction in winning my first Championship in what, 12 years? But it was holding me down so much I couldn’t ignore it. Which is why you brought that question, if I have any doubts? Let me ask you something Jake, why the fuck would I have any doubts? I’ve been at this caliber before, I’ve beaten people who would be contenders to win this sort of match before. This isn’t my first rodeo, and not just you, but everyone in this match needs to understand that.

Jake Mercer: Damn, sorry. I’m just saying, what have you been doing those 12 years?

Jon Kelton: Do your damn job.

Jake Mercer: Well it’s not like the next person is going to be any more cooperative. Ronan Malosi, last year at Pain For Pride you lost against Ryan Wilson in a New Breed Championship match. The year before… yeah… Lady Luck hasn’t been on your side these past few years. But, do you think that Pain For Pride 15 is the year you’ll turn things around?

Ronan Malosi: You want to know what’s happened these last few years that’s caused this string of bad luck, Jake? I’ll tell you, fear. People feared the type of Elitist that I would become and tried to pack my bags before I could get my footing. They thought I was as weak as the rest of them, but guess what Jake?

(Awkward silence.)

Ronan Malosi: … That’s your cue buckeroo…

Jake Mercer: Oh… um… what happened?

Ronan Malosi: They thought wrong! I persevered through all of that struggle and in turn, became a better Elitist than any of them. I’ve got them wishing they were me, wishing they were on my level, so much so that they go to insulting me to make themselves feel better. It’s a haters mentality, and I’m going to show why that doesn’t matter in the slightest. It was only a matter of time before the EAW career of Ronan Malosi skyrocketed to the next level, So I can say Cash in The Vault came at the perfect time, and now I’m about to live up to my name and become a rich man! I’ve heard all of these guys yap on and on about why they’re going to win and why I’m not and let’s be honest with ourselves Jake, it gets redundant, doesn’t it? That’s why I say, all you need to do if you’re doubting Ronan Malosi is watch and learn. Just like every single week I step into the ring, I will get to work, and clean up the competition!

Jon Kelton: You’re the least likely to win out of all of us what are you talking about?

Ronan Malosi: Lay off that haterade.

Jay Jerry Johnson: No, I think he’s right.

Ronan Malosi & Jon Kelton: Didn’t I beat you?

Jake Mercer: Alright, settle down-

Ronan Malosi & Jon Kelton & Jay Jerry Johnson: SHUT UP.

Jake Mercer: :will: I’m supposed to be the host. Well, anyway, thank you for your patience Adam but let’s go on to you. You ended Season 14 becoming the inaugural Hardcore Champion after its resurrection courtesy of one Mr. DEDEDE. Since then you have improved in leaps and strides and have made your way up to a World Championship level at a quickening pace. While those ventures haven’t garnered the success you expected, it is something of note. Do you think the Cash in The Vault though is your chance to reach the next level?

Adam Lucas: (Chuckling) I mean, that is what they call me isn’t it? But that is the name of the game, at least for me, achieving that ‘Next Level’. I’m always looking for a challenge, focusing on that next step in my career. Doesn’t matter if it’s the PURE Championship, the Hardcore Championship, the Answers World Championship, I could go on. Although my endeavors have never been foolproof, everyone can agree on the fact that every step of the way I have set goals for myself that I wish to achieve. And it just so happens that my crosshairs have been on the Cash in The Vault briefcase. I’ve come to terms with the fact that, as perfect of a reality as it could’ve been for me, I’m not in that Showdown main event slot like Impact and TLA are. I’m not Answers World Champion, and what happens at Pain For Pride will dictate whether it will happen sooner rather than later. You see, I’ve spoken on the future that I want for myself as an Elitist. The satisfaction of seeing myself as World Champion and Beth as Universal Women’s Champion is immense. But while she has the Empress of Elite, what do I have? This is where the Cash in The Vault match comes in, and I will assure you, I am not leaving Pain For Pride empty-handed. I’ll do everything to get that win, because who knows if it’s my last chance.

Jake Mercer: :wow: So insightful. Let’s get to the star of the show here, and that’s my name twin and fellow haircare specialists Jake Smith. Jake, how are you doing buddy?

Jake Smith: I’m doing great man-

SOSA Henderson: You gonna ask a question or flirt?

Jake Mercer: I’m getting there man… anyway, Jake, your Pain For Pride record has been uneven since your debut. At Pain For Pride 12, you lost a shot at the Unified Tag Team Championships. At Pain For Pride 13, you lost your PURE Championship to Xander Payne. Then at Pain For Pride 14, that’s when things start turning around and you beat EAW Hall of Famer Tyler Parker. Now here you are at Pain For Pride 15 in a match that is definitely more grueling than the aforementioned. How are you feeling?

Jake Smith: That may be the case Jake, but I think you’re looking at this a little too close-minded. I wouldn’t use my previous Pain For Pride appearances as a measuring stick to how this year is going to go because as you said it doesn’t create the best impression. I’d rather look at how my Season has gone, and especially if you look at my performance in the 2022 Grand Rampage match, I have been through much worse. Cash in The Vault is a huge opportunity, no doubt, but to say I”m unfamiliar with this type of terrain would be to set yourself up for failure. There’s been a common trait that I’ve held throughout my career and that is the fact that I am unapologetic about who I am and what I plan to do. Whenever that’s put into question I don’t back down because that, in my head, is 100% the truth. That type of confidence has led me to immense success throughout the four years that I’ve been here and Pain For Pride 15 will be no different, I’ll tell you that much for certain. I’m stepping up to the plate, and without even saying a word, people know that I am the target, I am the one that they are going to have to put their full attention on if they want to even make it out of this match alive. So I wish all of you the best of luck, but Pain For Pride is not going to be your week.

Ronan Malosi: :mjlol: Shut up short bitch.

Jake Smith: Ronan, when is the last time you beat me?

Ronan Malosi: Well, you see-

Jake Smith: Exactly.

Jake Mercer: Well last but not least, we got SOSA Henderson. SOSA, just like Kelton, you were in the Cash in The Vault match back in 2020. You came close, but you fell short of the mark. Since then, you’ve won the EAW World Champion and become a mainstay on the Friday Night Dynasty brand. Do you think with that, we might see a different outcome in one week?

SOSA Henderson: I mean shit I’d hope so. CITV is something that has eluded me twice in my career, and that just doesn’t feel right to me. Now having a third chance? I’m not going to fuck that up again. You see, I have one thing over everyone else in this match and that’s the fact that I’m a former World Champion, none of them can say that for themselves because they’re just not capable of reaching that level. So fuck they mean they’re going to win that briefcase? That just doesn’t make sense, but me? I think everyone knows that SOSA Henderson has this in the bag, and it’s going to take a lot to prove me wrong. I give an open invitation for anyone in this match to step up to the plate and try and do what I have in mind for myself, I promise you that is no problem for me. I’m just going to go off like I know I can and step over each and every one of you like a bunch of insects. I’ve been fiending for a second World Championship since the beginning of the Season and it’s been a rocky road to get to that point. But trust me, it’s going to happen, and it starts with CITV.

(Ronan looks to open his mouth again but SOSA instantly turns his head.)

SOSA Henderson: Say something and I’ll beat your ass right now. Bumass bitch.

Ronan Malosi: I’m so scared! I’ll have you looking up at the lights in seconds, test me.

Jon Kelton: You can’t even do anything other than the bare minimum per week, what makes you think that we’re going to take your threats remotely seriously?

Jake Mercer: Guys please we can go about this in a more peaceful way-

Jay Jerry Johnson: I think we’re done with that Jake, I’m more than ready for a fight.

Jake Smith: You lost to two of these men two weeks in a row, trust me, don’t try it.

Jay Jerry Johnson: I’ll beat you up too.

Jake Smith: :wtf:

(Jake Mercer looks around timidly before turning towards the camera and smiling. Kelton, Ronan, SOSA, and Jay are all arguing while Adam just leans back in his chair in entertainment and Jake Smith just shrugs his shoulders.)

Jake Mercer: Well um… that’s a wrap???

(The arguing gets louder as some of them even get out of their chairs and stand up. It seems like the EAW Universe is in for a brawl here tonight, but that doesn’t look to be in the schedule. Before things get out of hand, Friday Night Dynasty begins to fade elsewhere.)

[SCREENBAR: KING OF ELITE 2022 – ANDREA VALENTINE VS. MS. EXTREME – UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP]

Bella Braxton: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL! AND IS FOR THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP!

( “Roll With Me” by Charli XCX plays to an ear-deafening pop. The crowd’s volume amplifies right as Andrea Valentine appears on the entranceway. She poses on the stage and waves to the fans with a bright smile. When she looks towards the ring down the aisle, her smile turns into a face of complete concentration. Valentine has an opportunity to end a historical championship reign and finally reclaim her spot at the throne. She is going to do whatever it takes to take out Ms. Extreme. She continues to be in this focused zone while making her way down the aisle. )

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Orlando, Florida, weighing in at 110 pounds… ANDREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA VALLLENTIIIIINNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

James Peters: Since the beginning of this season, Andrea Valentine has been slowly building herself back up. She beat the current EAW World Heavyweight Champion, and put Xander Payne to the limit at Territorial Invasion, and now she has found herself back into the main event spotlight with a familiar foe through Ms. Extreme. Valentine believes that it has been way too long since she has held championship gold and tonight may be the night that we see the historical championship reign of Ms. Extreme come to an end.

James Peters: That’s right. We are seeing two premiere athletes who are in their best forms as of late. We are seeing a game Ms. Extreme and Andrea Valentine go toe-to-toe. Valentine has gone many months leaving her hat out of the EAW Universal Women’s Championship ring, and she has an opportunity of a lifetime to create such a historic moment. But, the question is to be asked. Everyone asked this question back at Territorial Invasion, which wasn’t that long ago. Is she ready to take that mantle again? Is she tough enough to be world champion once again? We will only know when you let the action speak for themselves. Both competitors have taken umbrage at each other based on the fact of who they think will leave Houston, Texas as the EAW Universal Women’s Championship, and they will undoubtedly fight to the very last ounce of energy remaining in their bodies.

Persephone: I hope not. This isn’t a 24/7 program.

( While Andrea Valentine performs pre-match rituals in her designated corner of the ring, her theme song silences. “Throne” by Saint Mesa reverberates throughout the NRG Stadium. It is immediately accompanied with an explosive pop. Ms. Extreme jerks the curtain and strolls onto the entranceway with even wilder cheers. She unhooks the championship from her waist and puts it in the air. She sports a confident smirk on her face. After looking around the atmosphere, she continues to hold the championship up in the air and makes her way down to the squared circle. Serenaded by cheers and fireworks, she smirks at Andrea Valentine. )

Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT! From Calabasas, California, weighing in at 140 pounds.. SHE IS THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION… “THE RED QUEEN,” MISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. EXTREEEEMEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme believes that she is the only woman in the world that has the capabilities of ensuring that the EAW Universal Women’s Championship will be handled with pride and dignity. She has admitted to having an ego bigger than the division altogether, but you have to agree that The Red Queen has done everything needed to prove that claim to super stardom. She dethroned the uber-talented Darcy May Morgan, shaved Hikari Kanno bald, and humbled Ximena Velasquez. She has held the championship for 225 days since Pain For Pride, so Camille has earned her respect and paid her dues.

James Peters: She has been waiting for Andrea Valentine to step up to the plate, but she is not quite impressed by the woman she is currently. Everytime Valentine tried to make her way back to the championship throne, her efforts have been absolutely fruitless. It wouldn’t be strange to doubt her chances of winning tonight. Ms. Extreme’s desire to keep that championship around her waist is just the same as Valentine’s ambition to return to that supernova level. This is going to be a match for the ages and it will all come down to who has more desire? Who has more ambition? Who has more heart, soul, and determination? Who is the superior? The inferior? Extreme and Valentine have the opportunity to settle it once and for all.

( DING! DING! DING! )

Rich Russillo: The crowd has been waiting all week for this match to take place and it is officially underway! Will Ms. Extreme continues to see another day with her record-breaking EAW Universal Women’s Championship reign? Or will Andrea Valentine go down in the history books to be the sole individual that ended it? The energy in the NRG Stadium Park is absolutely mental! One-half of the crowd is chanting “Let’s Go Andrea!,” while the other half follows it up with an even louder, “Ms. Extreme!” Houston, Texas is not afraid to let their voices be heard as we will continue to hear throughout the night. Andrea Valentine and Ms. Extreme stands face-to-face in the center of the ring and don’t engage to live in the moment! This is a match with huge ramifications!

James Peters: This is the big fight feel that sticks to these super show extravaganzas! Extreme and Valentine continue to live in the moment before they engage in a collar-and-elbow tie-up! Both female elitists tussle in the center of the ring and try to overpower the other. It is evenly-matched thus far until Valentine lets go of the collar-and-elbow tie-up and takes her down by the left leg! Extreme tries to get out of the hold, but Valentine seamlessly travels around and cinches in a front face lock! Technical wrestling on display from the challenger as Extreme uses her slight weight advantage to lift her up off her feet and hoist her up into the air! Valentine lets go and holds onto her waist! She pushes Extreme into the ropes and runs past her! Here comes Valentine off the ropes! SHE JUMPS AND GRABS EXTREME’S LEFT ARM!! AND SHE SPINS AROUND AND SENDS EXTREME PACKING THREE-THIRDS ACROSS THE RING WITH AN IMPRESSIVE SPINNING ARM DRAG!

Persephone: The barbie doll executes a semi impressive arm drag as Extreme now immediately retaliates and charges into her! Valentine grabs the arm and takes Extreme down with a second arm drag! Extreme quickly springs back up to her feet and could potentially walk into a trifecta of arm drags! DENIED! Extreme channels the strength of the nation’s amount of men she’s slept with and blocks the arm drag attempt. She yanks her up to her feet and goes around the waist to take her down by the waist. She goes around the body and puts her into a grounded headlock. A fast-paced technical standoff between both individuals so far. I will never understand this approach because why can’t these wannabe elitists just hit their finishers at the beginning.

Rich Russillo: The champion continues to cinch in that headlock, but we are beginning to see Andrea Valentine attempt to wiggle out of the headlock. She begins to direct punches straight to the ribcage, but Extreme repositions herself to easily avoid them. This is the name of the game; to wear your opponents out. Extreme begins to use her idle arm and clubs her skull with repeated elbows! Extreme is willing to use any opening to her advantage and that’s what happens when the headlock leaves the top of your head open! Extreme might just bust her skull open, but Valentine is able to momentarily stop her by using her long legs to connect with a knee to the face. Valentine uses the window of opportunity to put her into a headlock of her own! Nonetheless, Extreme quickly counters her headlock and places Valentine into the leg scissors!

James Peters: Valentine swiftly prompts out of the leg scissors! AND EXTREME QUICKLY GROUNDS HER WITH A DROP TOE HOLD!! AND SHE PULLS HER LEG AND LOOKS TO CINCH IN THE AVA LOCK!! THE MODIFIED STF LOCK, BUT VALENTINE TWISTS HER BODY AND KICKS HER AWAY!! The challenger now rolls up to her feet as both competitors meet in the middle! AND VALENTINE SWINGS FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! EXTREME STEPS BACK AND DODGES IT!! AND SHE CONNECTS WITH A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION!! Extreme throws over the arm, hooks the tights and hoists her up into a vertical position!

Persephone: Valentine counters the suplex and lands behind Extreme. Valentine wraps her arms around her chest and goes for a GERMAN SUPLEX! THE CHAMPION SLAPS THE WRIST AND CONNECTS WITH A BACK ELBOW TO THE FACE! Valentine reels into the corner turnbuckles and Extreme lunges towards her in the corner! VALENTINE GETS BOTH FEET UP!! AND SHE THRUSTS EXTREME INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!! AND VALENTINE ROLLS FORWARDS THE CHAMPION!! AND THE CHALLENGER TAKES THE CHAMPION OFF HER FEET WITH A PRECISION ROLL INTO A DROPKICK! VALENTINE GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER OF THIS MATCH!! IT IS ACADEMIC FROM HERE!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-

James Peters: EXTREME IMMEDIATELY POWERS OUT AT ONE!! Valentine quickly places her into a grounded chinlock. It seemed like both individuals were struggling to get the upper hand over each other, but it is all about finding that slight window of opportunity and using it to change the complexion of this match. Valentine did exactly that and she needs to keep Extreme grounded in order to maintain that advantage over the champion. However, the champion seems to be gaining momentum and begins to power out of the chinlock. Extreme is clenching her fist as she is being cheered on by the 50/50 crowd! AND EXTREME DROPS DOWN FOR A JAWBREAKER!

Rich Russillo: WAIT!! VALENTINE LET GO AT THE LAST SECOND AND EXTREME MERELY FALLS TO A SEATED POSITION!! AND VALENTINE WITH PENALTY KICK TO THE BACK OF THE CHAMPION!! The challenger had that jawbreaker scouted and now places her into a headlock on the canvas. Right when you were talking about Valentine doing everything in her power to maintain her advantage, she pulls a brilliant evasion like that. Valentine applies the headlock, but it doesn’t look like it for long as Extreme starts to power out of it! Extreme gets on both feet and starts sending elbows to the midsection! VALENTINE WITH A KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION!! The champion is down to one knee as Valentine proceeds to run the ropes! THE CHALLENGER REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES NOW!!

Persephone: THE WACKMELEON RUNS PAST AND REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES! AND VALENTINE TURNS AROUND TO TAKE A DEVASTATING CALF KICK HEAD ON TO THE FACE!! EXTREME TURNS THE MATCH TO HER FAVOR AS SHE ROLLS TO THE SIDE OF THE RING AND WAITS FOR THE CHALLENGER TO GET UP TO HER FEET! END THIS MATCH NOW!! NO ONE WANTS TO SEE ANYMORE OF THIS!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme helps Andrea Valentine up to her feet before she takes a couple of steps back! AND SHE CLOCKS VALENTINE IN THE JAW WITH A SHOOT KICK!! AND VALENTINE INSTINCTIVELY REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND DECIMATES THE LOWER CHEST OF EXTREME WITH A EMPHATIC ROUNDHOUSE KICK! I THINK YOU COULD’VE HEARD THE KICK FROM CHICAGO!! FROM AUSTRALIA, EVEN!! THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL AND IT SENT EXTREME DOWN TO BOTH OF HER KNEES!! VALENTINE WITH THOSE POWERFUL KICKS AS SHE NOW REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!! AND SHE GOES FOR A SHOOT KICK TO THE FACE!! EXTREME IS UNPROTECTED!

Rich Russillo: EXTREME DUCKS THE LEG AND REACHES UNDER!! AND SHE LAUNCHES VALENTINE ACROSS THE CANVAS WITH AN OVERHEAD LEG-CAPTURE RELEASE SUPLEX!! WHAT A COUNTER AS EXTREME IS STARTING TO HEAT UP NOW!! EXTREME WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE MIDSECTION!! The champion turns her around and places Valentine onto the top turnbuckle. Extreme with a rope-assisted enziguri to the back of the neck before she joins Valentine on the top rope. What is the champion thinking here?! The Red Queen is all about taking risks and Valentine might be on the receiving end of something extremely ugly!

Persephone: It looks like Extreme is going to go for an avalanche back-to-belly suplex! BUT VALENTINE SLIPS UNDER HER LEGS AND YANKS HER FEET OFF THE TOP ROPES!! AND EXTREME GOES FACE-FIRST ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! EXTREME REELS INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING AS VALENTINE SNEAKS UP FROM BEHIND AND JUMPS ONTO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! Is she actually going for it already? SHE IS!! VALENTINE JUMPS UP FOR THE ATOMIC BLONDE!!

Rich Russillo: EXTREME COUNTERS IT BY FALLING FORWARD AND SLAMMING HER FACE-FIRST!! AN ELECTRIC CHAIR FACEBUSTER OF SORTS AS EXTREME IMMEDIATELY PLUCKS HER OFF THE GROUND!! AND PLUMPS HER ONTO THE CANVAS WITH A RELEASE DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX… WITH A BRIDGE!! THE CHAMPION COULD RETAIN RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TW-

James Peters: VALENTINES KICKS OUT!! Ms. Extreme with a unique counter to The Atomic Blonde as she now helps the challenger up to her feet. Extreme leans Valentine in the corner turnbuckles and connects with a kick to the midsection! And then she follows it up with a SHOOT KICK TO THE FACE!! SHE IRISH WHIPS THE CHALLENGER INTO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING!! AND VALENTINE GOES COLLIDING INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! AND SHE WALKS RIGHT INTO A BRIDGING NORTHERNS LIGHT SUPLEX COURTESY OF THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!! SHE DOESN’T LET THE REFEREE COUNT AS SHE IMMEDIATELY BRIDGES OVER!

Rich Russillo: AND EXTREME PICKS HER UP AND TOSSES HER DOWN WITH A RELEASE EXPLODER SUPLEX!! EXTREME KIPS-UP AS SHE POUNDS HER CHEST TO HYPE HERSELF UP!! The champion helps the challenger up to her feet and Irish whips her into the ropes! Valentine rebounds off into Extreme! VALENTINE DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT AND FLUSHES HER WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE JAW!! THE CHAMPION IS STUNNED AS EXTREME FALTERS INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLES!! VALENTINE NOW CLOSELY FOLLOWS HER INTO THE CORNER!

James Peters: EXTREME GETS HER FOOT UP!!! SHE USES HER OTHER FOOT TO KICK VALENTINE’S HANDS AWAY AND USES THE OTHER TO HIT HER WITH A KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW!! VALENTINE REELS INTO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING AS EXTREME USES THE ROPES TO MAINTAIN HER BALANCE!! Ms. Extreme takes a huge breath and rebounds off the ropes! She runs the ropes! Valentines is right beside hte ropes!! AND EXTREME JUMPS ONTO VALENTINE FOR A JUMPING HURRICANRANA THAT WOULD SEND HER OUT OF THE RING!

( While Valentine flies off the hurricanrana, she adapts and handsprings off the nearest set of the ropes for a safe landing. )

Persephone: HUH!!? VALENTINE EVADES THE DESCEND OF THE HURRICANRANA BY HAND SPRINGING OFF THE ROPES!! EXTREME IS ON HER KNEES AND OBLIVIOUS THAT HER HURRICANRANA ATTEMPT FAILED!! VALENTINE COMES FROM BEHIND AND GETS THE LEG SCISSORS ON THE KNEELING CHAMPION!! AND THE CHALLENGER CONNECTS WITH THE HANDSTAND HEADSCISSORS DRIVER!! VALENTINE’S MASSACRE CONNECTS SMACK DAB IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! DO YOU THINK THIS WILL BE IT!! IT COULD BE!! COME ON!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-

James Peters: SHE KICKS OUT!! Andrea Valentine nearly ended the historic championship reign of Valentine with that impressive feat of athleticism! I don’t even think I can believe what I just saw. She softened the fall of that hurricanrana by hand springing off the ropes. It is absolutely unbelievable! Valentine caught her by surprise with The Valentine’s Massacre, but as expected, she needs to inflict more damage onto the world champion. Valentine brings Extreme up to her feet and gets her up into the corner! AND THE CHALLENGER BEGINS TO PEPPER THE CHAMPION WITH ENDLESS ROUNDHOUSE KICKS TO THE CHEST IN THE CORNER TURNBUCKLES!

Rich Russillo: ROUNDHOUSE KICK AFTER ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! AND THEN SHE FINISHES THE RAINFALL OF STRIKES WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! Ms. Extreme is being overwhelmed in the corner as Valentine runs into the opposite corner of the ring! MS. EXTREME FOLLOWS HER INTO THE CORNER!! VALENTINE HAD IT SCOUTED AND MOVES OUT OF THE WAY IN THE NICK OF TIME!! EXTREME GOES INTO THE CORNER AND TURNS AROUND!! AND VALENTINE OBLITERATES HER WITH A SPINNING BACK FIST!! EXTREME FALLS INTO A SEATED POSITION IN THE TURNBUCKLES AS VALENTINE NOW RUNS INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER AND BACK!! AND SHE LOOKS TO EXPLODE ONTO THE CHAMPION WITH A METEORA INTO THE CORNER!!

Persephone: BUT BARBIE DOLL MISSES AND DRIVES HER KNEES INTO THE TURNBUCKLES UNPROTECTED!! ANDREA GRABS HER LEGS IN PAIN AS EXTREME PULLS HER OUT OF THE CORNER!! THE CHAMPION KICKS THE MIDSECTION!! AND SHE GOES FOR THE SPINNING NECKBREAKER!! BUT THE TWIST OF FATE IS COUNTERED AS ANDREA SPINNED OUT OF HER CONTROL AND CONNECTS WITH A JUMPING GAMENGIRI KICK!! THE CHAMPION IS STUNNED!! THE CHALLENGER NEEDS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE RIGHT NOW!

Rich Russillo: ANDREA RUNS INTO THE ROPES AND FLIPS FORWARD!! AND SHE GOES FOR A HANDSPRI- NOW!! EXTREME STOPS THE HANDSPRING BY DROP KICKING HER RIGHT AS SHE FLIPPED INTO THE ROPES!! EXTREME NOW PULLS THE CHALLENGER UP TO HER FEET!! AND SHE SLAMS HER DOWN WITH THE SPINNING NECKBREAKER!! TWIST OF FATE IN THE CENTER OF THE RING AS EXTREME COULD RETAIN RIGHT HERE!! IT IS ALL OR NEVER!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

James Peters: ANDREA POWERS OUT!! The challenger pulls her shoulder up before two. The world champion was steps ahead of Valentine with that unique dropkick counter right as she handspring into the ropes. Extreme is on both knees, strategizing on her neck move on the chessboard. Her look of fatigue turns into a smirk as she gets up to her feet and waits for Valentine to get up to her feet. Valentine is gingerly emerging to her feet! AND EXTREME TAKES HER BACK DOWN WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE MIDSECTION!! Valentine grabs her midsection in pain as Extreme now looks towards the top turnbuckle and steps through the ropes! What is the universal champion thinking here?

Persephone: THE REPTILE IS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! I think she is looking for that Top Rope Stunner! Paying homage to one of her five thousand sisters, perhaps? Valentine gets up to her feet and EXTREME SHOOTS OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! WAIT!! VALENTINE LUNGES TOWARDS THE ROPES AND BRINGS IT DOWN!! THIS RESULTS IN EXTREME LOSING BALANCE AND GOING PUSSY FIRST ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! VALENTINE NOW QUICKLY CONNECTS WITH A SHOOT KICK TO THE FACE BEFORE JOINING HER ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!

James Peters: Both champion and challenger are in a precarious position right now! Valentine looks to be aiming for an avalanche frankensteiner, but Extreme is positioning herself into a way where Valentine cannot get the leg scissors! Valentine notices this and starts to rain down elbows towards the crown of the champion! Elbow after elbo- BEFORE EXTREME PUSHES HER TO THE LEFT!! AND VALENTINE’S HEAD SNAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE ON HER WAY DOWN!! VALENTINE GOES FACE FIRST AS SHE IS NOW SLUGGED FORWARD, HANGING OVER THE SECOND ROPE MANY FEET AWAY FROM THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION!! EXTREME WITH A SMILE ON HER FACE AS SHE RETURNS TO THE PERCHED STATE SHE WAS AT FROM EARLIER!! WHAT IS SHE DOING HERE?!?

Persephone: The fuck is she going to do? Valentine is literally dead (hopefully) at other corner! There is no way she can dive all the way there.. Can she?

Rich Russillo: Ms. Extreme is spreading her arms as she stands on the top rope! Andrea Valentine has still yet to move as she is hung face down over the second rope beside the turnbuckles! OH MY GOD! EXTREME LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND EXTENDS HER LEGS!! NO WAY!

( Ms. Extreme executes a coast-to-coast dropkick to the hanging challenger. )

James Peters: THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION CONNECTS WITH A DEATH-DEFYING COAST-TO-COAST DROPKICK TO THE SUSPENDED CHALLENGER!! MS. EXTREME LYING IT ON THE LINE BY BRINGING OUT NEW GUNS OUT OF HER ARSENAL!! IT IS CERTAIN THAT VALENTINE WASN’T EXPECTING THAT!! EXTREME IS SLOW TO GET THE COVER AS SHE NOW HOOKS THE LEG AND HAS THE LATERAL PRESS!! THE CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN CONTINUES!! COVER!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

TH-

Rich Russillo: NO!!!! VALENTINE PUSHES HER SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST SECOND! Ms. Extreme continues to prove that she is the top daredevil of this company! Extreme remains in a sea of tranquility and brings the challenger up to her feet! Extreme with a kick to the face, followed by a spinning heel kick to the midsection. Valentine is down on one knee as Extreme now runs the ropes! The champion rebounds! Valentine slides through her legs! Extreme turns around and VALENTINE HANDSPRINGS OFF THE ROPES!! AND SHE LOOKS TO CONNECT WITH THE BACK ELBOW!

James Peters: BUT EXTREME BEAUTIFULLY REVERSES THE HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW BY USING ANDREA’S MOMENTUM TO SNAP HER BACK AND ROLL HER INTO A FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL COUNTER BY THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION! EXTREME NOW BEGINS TO CLUB ANDREA WITH HER IDLE ARM!! BUT ANDREA IS ABLE TO ROLL OUT AND LIFT EXTREME AROUND!! EXTREME LANDS ON HER FEET AND GOES FOR A DDT!! BUT ANDREA GOES AROUND THE WAIST AND DRIVES HER DOWN WITH A DOUBLE KNEE BACKSTABBER!! THE CHALLENGER SPIKES THE CHAMPION AS SHE NOW RUNS THE ROPES!

Rich Russillo: THE CHALLENGER REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!! AND SHE TRAVELS AROUND THE CHAMPION’S BODY!! AND VALENTINE SENDS EXTREME PACKING OUT ACROSS THE RING AND TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLES WITH THE SIGNATURE TILT-A-WHIRL LEGSCISSORS! VALENTINE KIPS-UP TO HER FEET AND NOW RUNS THE ROPES!! AND SHE LOOKS TO SQUASH THE CHAMPION INTO THE CORNER!! BUT EXTREME LEANS DOWN AND SENDS VALENTINE OVER THE TOP ROPE AND LANDS ON THE APRON!

Persephone: Extreme goes for a rope-assisted enziguri! BUT VALENTINE GRABS HER FOOT!! AND SHE USES IT TO SUCCESSFULLY BRING THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION OUT OF THE RING! Both elitists are exchanging strikes on the apron now! Extreme with a forearm smash! Valentine with one of her own! Extreme now begins to pepper the challenger! The champion is overpowering Valentine as Valentine PUSHES AVA NUMBER 1000 INTO THE RINGPOST!! EXTREME SMACKS THE BACK OF HER HEAD ONTO THE RINGPOST AS VALENTINE NOW BACKS UP!! OH YES!! A METEORA INTO THE RINGPOST!

James Peters: EXTREME PULLS HERSELF UP AT THE LAST SECOND!! AND CONNECTS WITH A THRUST KICK TO THE JAW!! VALENTINE IS STUNNED AS EXTREME NOW GRABS HER AND PULLS HER HEAD IN BETWEEN HER THIGHS!! OH NO!! NOT ON THE APRON!! EXTREME JUMPS OVER ONTO HER BACK AND LOOKS TO DRIVE HER ONTO THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING WITH HER SIGNATURE SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!! THIS COULD END THE MATCH!

Rich Russillo: NO!! RIGHT AS EXTREME JUMPED FOR THE SUNSET FLIP, ANDREA SIMPLY SLID UNDER HER LEGS!! EXTREME IS CONFUSED AS ANDREA COMES FROM BEHIND!! AND SHE PUSHES EXTREME FACE FIRST INTO THE OTHER RINGPOST!! EXTREME IS GRABBING HER THROAT IN PAIN AS VALENTINE NOW GRABS HER FROM BEHIND!! AND SHE JUMPS ONTO THE BACK OF HER HEAD FOR THE ATOMIC BLONDE!! THIS IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS MANY TIMES FOR VALENTINE!! IF SHE HITS THIS, IT IS OVER FOR EXTREME!!

James Peters: WAIT A SECOND!! EXTREME HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES AND MANAGES TO COUNTER THE REVERSE RANA BY PULLING HER UP AND TRANSITIONING HER INTO A FIREMAN’S CARRY!! EXTREME WITH ANOTHER UNIQUE COUNTER TO THE ATOMIC BLONDE AS VALENTINE IS TRYING TO ESCAPE OUT OF THE FIREMAN’S CARRY!! BUT THE WORLD CHAMPION HAS THE CARRY IN TIGHT!!

Persephone: EXTREME JUMPS OFF THE APRON AND DRIVES VALENTINE INTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH A ROLLING SENTON!! OH MY GOD!! IT LOOKS LIKE EXTREME MIGHT HAVE TAKEN THAT MUCH DAMAGE AS WELL!! STUPID FUCKING WHORE! Extreme with another dangerous maneuver off the apron! I don’t think I have ever seen the rolling senton done like that and Valentine has yet to move! Get the medics her and take her to the hospital! DING! DING! DING! IT IS OVER!

Rich Russillo: No. It isn’t. Extreme slowly gets up to her feet and throws Valentine through the ropes! Extreme looks like she wants to get this done and over with right now as she jumps onto the top turnbuckle! Valentine is smack dab in the center of the ring in a supine position! EXTREME IS SIGNALLING FOR THE END!! AND SHE LEAPS HIGH UP INTO THE SKIES!! AND LOOKS TO CAVE A WHOLE IN VALENTINE’S CHEST WITH HER DEVASTATING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!! A BLIND FURY!!

James Peters: NO!! VALENTINE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND EXTREME ROLLS SAFELY INTO THE CENTRE OF THE RING!! BUT EXTREME’S SAFETY ISN’T GUARANTEED AS SHE GETS CLOCKED IN THE JAW WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!! AND VALENTINE SPINS RIGHT INTO A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE JAW!! EXTREME IS DOWN ONTO BOTH KNEES AS VALENTINE NOW RUNS INTO THE CORNER AND BACK!!

AND SHE LOOKS FOR A JUMPING METEOR-

Rich Russillo: EXTREME CATCHES THE METEORA AND HAS HER UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION!! OH NO!! EXTREME NOW RAISES HER UP!! WAIT!! VALENTINE REVERSES THE POWERBOMB INTO A FLIP PILEDRIVER!! A VALENTINE DESTROYER AS ANDREA DOES NOT GO FOR THE COVER!! ANDREA ROLLS UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND FRANTICALLY ASCENDS THE TURNBUCKLES!! CAN THIS BE IT FOR EXTREME’S CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN!! WILL VALENTINE REIGN SUPREME!! SHE IS NOW ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!

Persephone: THE ROUNDING MOONSAULT ONTO THE HEART OF THE WORLD CHAMPION!! THE MAGIC HOUR CONNECTS AS VALENTINE HOOKS BOTH LEGS WITH DESPERATION!! NEW CHAMPION!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THREE-

James Peters: KICK-OUT!! BUT VALENTINE IMMEDIATELY GRABS THE ARM SHE PUT UP AND PUTS INTO A CROSS ARMBREAKER!! THE CHALLENGER FIGURED THAT WOULDN’T BE ENOUGH TO BECOME CHAMPION AND STEPS AHEAD OF THE CHAMPION!! VALENTINE WITH A CROSS ARMBREAKER CINCHED IN TIGHT IN THE CENTRE OF THE RING!! COULD WE SEE THE CHAMPIONSHIP CHANGE HANDS WITH A SUBMISSION!?!?

Rich Russillo: NO WAY!! THE WORLD CHAMPION WILL NOT ALLOW IT!! EXTREME BEGINS TO OVERPOWER THE CHALLENGER AND SLAMS HER DOWN WITH A KNOCKOUT SLAM!! BUT VALENTINE INSTINCTIVELY GETS HER INTO AN ARM TRIANGLE!! EXTREME IS LOCKED INTO ANOTHER SUBMISSION! EXTREME IS SHAKING HER LEGS LOOKING TO GET A FEEL OF THE ROPES!! AND VALENTINE STARTS TO RAIN DOWN 12-6 ELBOWS ONTO THE TOP OF HER HEAD!! VALENTINE IS BRILLIANT!! SOFTEN HER UP SO SHE CAN FALL ASLEEP EASIER!

James Peters: EXTREME RANDOMLY HOISTS HER UP INTO THE AIR!! YOU CAN SEE THE LOOK OF DISBELIEF ON VALENTINE’S FACE!! AND EXTREME WITH ANOTHER KNOCKOUT SLAM!! ANOTHER POWERBOMB AND IT LOOKS LIKE VALENTINE HAS GIVEN UP!! NO!! VALENTINE NOW GRABS THE HEAD AND PUTS HER INTO THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE HOLD!! EXTREME IS BACK INTO ANOTHER SUBMISSION HOLD AS WE ARE WITNESSING THE UNDYING RESILIENCE OF THE CHALLENGER!! VALENTINE WILL NOT GIVE UP!!

Rich Russillo: EXTREME IS STARTING TO LOSE CONSCIOUSNESS!! I WAS WRONG!! EXTREME CLENCHES HER FIST AND STARTS TO DRAG WHATEVER PART OF BODY SHE CAN CLOSER TOWARDS THE ROPES!! SHE IS LITERALLY AN ARM’S REACH FROM THE ROPES!! BUT VALENTINE CONTINUES TO PULL BACK ON THE NECK!! EXTREME IS FRANTICALLY REACHING FOR THE ROPES!! SHE IS RIGHT THERE!! VALENTINE IS SCREAMING AS SHE IS PUTTING EVERY OUNCE OF ENERGY SHE HAS LEFT IN HER BODY INTO THIS GUILLOTINE CHOKE HOLD!! WE ARE SECONDS AWAY FROM THE POSSIBLE CHANCE THAT EXTREME PASSES OUT!! COME ON!! EXTREME!!

Rich Russillo: EXTREME BRINGS HER ARM UP ONCE AGAIN!! AND SHE LOOKS TO TRY ONE MORE LAST CHANCE AT A ROPE BREAK!! EXTREME SLOWLY INCHES CLOSER TOWARDS THE ROPES!! VALENTINE CONTINUES TO SCREAM LOUDER AND LOUDER!! AND NOW VALENTINE GETS THE LEG SCISSORS IN!! VALENTINE CINCES HER LEGS AROUND HER WAIST AND NOW EXTREME CAN’T USE HER BODY STRENGTH TO GET HER CLOSER TOWARDS THE ROPES!! EXTREME IS STARTING TO LOSE CONSCIOUSNESS!!

Persephone: EXTREME PUTS HER ARM DOWN!! AND HER EYES CLOSE!! YES!! THE REFEREE HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO RING THE BELL!!

( Right as the referee was about to ring the bell, Extreme grabs his hand. Extreme wiggles her finger indicating that she isn’t done yet. )

James Peters: THE RESILIENCE OF THE CHAMPION!! THE REFEREE WAS ABOUT TO AWARD THE VICTORY TO ANDREA, BUT EXTREME HAS A SHIT TON OF FIGHT LEFT IN HER!! VALENTINE CAN’T BELIEVE IT AS EXTREME IS STARTING TO GET ON HER FEET!! ANDREA IS PICKED UP OFF THE GROUND AS EXTREME BRINGS HER CLOSER TOWARDS THE ROPES!! THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE HOLD IS RELINQUISHES AS VALENTINE ADAPTS AND TRIES TO PUT HER BACK DOWN WITH AN ARM TRIANGLE!! BUT EXTREME CONTINUES TO HOLD HER UP AND LEANS HER UP AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLES!!

Rich Russillo: THIS IS TECHNICALLY A ROPE BREAK, BUT EXTREME HAS NO PLANS TO LET GO OF VALENTINE!! VALENTINE HAS LET GO OF THE SUBMISSION AS EXTREME IS CARRYING HER UP THE TURNBUCKLES IN A POWERBOMB POSITION!! WHAT THE HELL IS THE CHAMPION THINKING HERE!! AND EXTREME IS UP ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE CARRYING HER IN A POWERBOMB WITH ONE ARM!! THIS FREAK STRENGTH FROM EXTREME IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS MATCH!! OH MY GOD!! VALENTINE WITH A SHOCKED FACE AS EXTREME LETS OUT OF SOME SORT OF WARCRY!!

Persephone: EXTREME GOES FOR A ONE-ARM POWERBOMB OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!

James Peters: VALENTINE COUNTERS AT THE LAST SECOND AND SPIKES EXTREME’S HEAD ONTO THE CANVAS WITH A SPIKE HURRICANRANA!! OH MY GOD!! EXTREME GOES SKULL FIRST OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WITH THE SPIKE RANA AS VALENTINE FRANTICALLY GOES FOR A PIN!! BUT EXTREME ROLLS OVER UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE AND DROPS TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!! GREAT RING AWARENESS FROM THE CHAMPION AS THAT PIN COULD HAVE GOTTEN VALENTINE THE VICTORY!!!

( Andrea Valentine struggles to get up to her feet while Extreme is unconscious at ringside. The crowd lets out a huge pop as they see who is on the titantron. The titantron momentarily shows Madison Kaline watching the match on her television monitor from her locker room. Kaline smirks at the screen before the titantron goes back to the King Of Elite graphics. )

James Peters: Madison Kaline most certainly has her eyes on the EAW Universal Women’s Championship, so it should come to no one’s surprise that she has her eyes glued to that screen. Not only do the champion walking out of this match have to worry about a challenger like Madison, but they have to worry about Dr. Bethany Blue or Miku Sakai after tonight. The EAW Universal Women’s Champion will leave Houston, Texas, with even more targets on her crown. However, these competitors are all for that. That is why they are in EAW in the first place. It is the thrill of the competition and you can notice that their desire to be champion is out of the world impressive.

Rich Russillo: We are seeing an extremely competitive side from both of these competitors. The champion has continued to showcase that she will go to whatever lengths, even if she could get a career-threatening injury in the process, to retain that championship. She isn’t the longest reigning EAW Universal Woman’s Champion in history for no reason. Andrea Valentine has taken her to the absolute limit. This is The Red Queen’s toughest challenge yet. Valentine is now fully up to her feet as she begins to climb the turnbuckle. What is the challenger thinking here? Is she as bat shit crazy as the champion herself? Valentine is perched on the top turnbuckle!

James Peters: EXTREME LEAPS ONTO THE APRON OUT OF NOWHERE!! AND LOOKS TO PUSH VALENTINE OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! Valentine steps off the top turnbuckle before she could grab her! AND VALENTINE WITH A SPINNING BACK FIST TO EXTREME!! GOD DAYUM!! Extreme is staggered as Valentine steps back up to the turnbuckles and she grabs Extreme from below! What is going through the mind of the challenger? Valentine now grabs her arm-

Rich Russillo: EXTREME WITH A ROPE-ASSISTED ENZIGURI RIGHT TO THE MUSHER!! AND THEN SHE GRABS VALENTINE’S HAND AND PULLS HER OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! AND VALENTINE’S HEAD GOES FACE-FIRST ONTO THE TOP ROPE!! VALENTINE’S HEAD SNAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE AS SHE NOW REELS INTO THE CENTRE OF THE RING!! EXTREME HOLDS ONTO THE TOP ROPE AND LOOKS DOWN AT THE SUBCONSCIOUS VALENTINE WITH A SINISTER SMIRK ON HER FACE!!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme springs onto the top rope, and jumps off it to jump onto the adjacent ropes! AND SHE JUMPS OFF THAT ROPE!! AND SHE FLIPS BACKWARDS IN CORKSCREW MOTION!! AND CONNECTS WITH THE STUNNER ON HER WAY DOWN!! A CORKSCREW VARIATION OF THE GLASS CEILING CONNECTS!!! OH MY GOD!! MS. EXTREME WITH A FREAK SHOWCASE OF ATHLETICISM AS SHE HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! THIS HAS TO BE IT!! COUNT, IT REF!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!! VALENTINE GETS HER SHOULDER UP!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! When it comes to the Glass Ceiling manoeuvre, Extreme has primarily jumped from the top rope down onto the opponent. Extreme went above and beyond and perfectly executed a corkscrew leaping stunner and that nearly put Valentine away. Valentine continues to be resilient and Extreme’s confidence might be fading away. Extreme takes a couple of deep breathes before she kicks Valentine right in the face. Valentine goes down and Extreme climbs back onto the top turnbuckle. Extreme is pointing right at the challenger! AND SHE DESCENDS!

James Peters: VALENTINE INTERCEPTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE FACE!! IT CONNECTS AS EXTREME FELL RIGHT INTO THAT KICK!! SHE IS DOWN AND OUT AS VALENTINE IS STARTING TO GET SUPPORT OF THE CROWD!! THIS HAS BEEN AN AMAZING MATCH THUS FAR!! VALENTINE IS UP TO HER FEET AS SHE IS WAITING FOR EXTREME TO GET UP TO HER FEET!! VALENTINE COULD FINISH THIS RIGHT NOW!! THIS IS JUST A TEST OF WHO HAS MORE STAMINA AT THIS POINT! WHO HAS MORE FIGHT IN THEM AT THIS POINT!!

Persephone: VALENTINE RUNS AND FLIPS THE CHAMPION OVER FOR THE RUNNING CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER!! BUT EXTREME DROPS DOWN AND VALENTINE GETS CAUGHT RED-HANDED!! THE SEATED FUJIWARA ARMBAR IS CINCHED IN THE CENTER OF THE RING AS THE CHALLENGER IS IN HUGE TROUBLE!! THIS VERY SUBMISSION HOLD HAS WON A HANDFUL OF MATCHES, NO PUN INTENDED, FOR THE CHAMELEON IN THE PAST!! WILL IT BE THE SUBMISSION MOVE THAT WILL GET HER THE VICTORY OVER ANDREA VALENTINE!

James Peters: I DON’T THINK SO!! VALENTINE IS STARTING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT AND LIFTS EXTREME OFF HER POSTERIOR AND HOISTS HER INTO AN ELECTRIC CHAIR!! OH MY GOD!!! VALENTINE WITH A DETERMINED LOOK IN HER FACE AS HE HOLDS HER UP!! VALENTINE IS TRYING TO MANOEUVRE THE CHAMPION IN THE ELECTRIC CHAIR, BUT EXTREME IS SENDING DOWN PUNCHES AND IS TRYING TO GET OUT OF IT AS BEST AS POSSIB-

Rich Russillo: THE ATOMIC BLONDE FROM EXTREME!! WHAT THE HELL!! MORE LIKE ATOMIC RED AS THE CHAMPION JUST STOLE A MOVE FROM THE CHALLENGER’S PLAYBOOK!! THE IRONY OF THIS!! IMAGINE THE HEADLINES IF MS. EXTREME WINS DEFENDS HER CHAMPIONSHIP WITH THE CHALLENGER’S OWN MOVE!! EXTREME SEEMS SHOCKED THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO GO THROUGH WITH THAT AS SHE IS ELECTING TO NOT GO FOR THE COVER!! SHE STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES AND CLIMBS THE TURNBUCKLES!

James Peters: AND EXTREME IS NOW PERCHED ON TOP!! AND SHE SOARS OFF FOR THE DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!! ANDREA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!! AND SHE GRABS EXTREME’S LEFT FOOT ONCE SHE LANDS!! AND SHE TAKES HER DOWN!! AND PUTS HER INTO THE MODIFIED STF!! THE AVA LOCK!! ANDREA VALENTINE FLIPPING THE AVA LOCK INTO HER OWN!! CALL THIS THE VALENTINE LOCK AS IT IS AN EYE FOR AN EYE!! IF YOU ARE GOING TO STEAL MY MOVE, THEN I AM GOING TO STEAL YOURS MENTALITY!! THESE COMPETITORS ARE LITERALLY GOING TIT FOR TAT IN THIS MATCH AS ANDREA HAS THE STF LOCKED IN TIGHT!!

Rich Russillo: EXTREME SLIDES UNDER HER ARMS AND ESCAPES OUT OF HER OWN MOVE QUICKLY!! AND SHE GRABS HER LEGS AND TRIES TO CINCH IN THE CHINLOCK FOR THE STF!! BUT THE AVA LOCK IS EVADED AS VALENTINE ROLLS THROUGH AND EXTREME GOES FACE-FIRST INTO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE!! EXTREME IS STUNNED AS SHE TURNS AROUND!! AND GETS CLOCKED WITH A SHOOT KICK TO THE FACE!! FOLLOWED BY A JUMPING DOUBLE SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE BACK OF THE NECK!! EXTREME HAS FALLEN AS VALENTINE IS UP TO HER FEET!

James Peters: THESE TWO ARE JUST NOT GIVING UP!! EXTREME IS BACK UP TO HER FEET QUICKLY AS ANDREA JUMPS ONTO THE SECOND ROPE!! AND SHE SPRINGBOARDS OFF IT AND FALLS BACKWARDS!! AND GOES FOR THE ATOMIC BLONDE!! AND ANDREA SPIKES THE CHAMPION WITH THE INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER!! THE ATOMIC BLONDE!! THE CHAMPIONSHIP REIGN IS OVER!

Persephone: NO!!! EXTREME FLIPPED BACKWARDS AT THE MOST PERFECT SECOND AND GRABS HER LEG!! AND STEPS INTO THE STF!! THERE IT IS!! THE AVA LOCK IN CINCHED IN!! EXTREME HAS HER IN THE CENTRE OF THE RING!! NOW TAP ANDREA!! TAP NOW!! NOW!!! NOW!! NOW!!! NOW!! NOW!!

Rich Russillo: Andrea Valentine still has a lot of energy left in her! Extreme is trying her best to submit her with the modified STF, but Andrea Valentine is digging her fingernails into the canvas in order to bring herself closer towards the ropes. Valentine is now trying to pull Extreme’s arms away from around her head, but it is to no avail. Valentine has only one way to get out of this and that is the infamous rope break! Extreme lets go and starts clubbing her face in! VALENTINE GRABS HER ARM AND TRIES TO USE IT TO GET OUT!! BUT EXTREME USES HER OTHER ARM TO CLUB HER IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD!! AND VALENTINE IS RIGHT BACK IN THE AVA LOCK!

James Peters: ANDREA IS NOW REACHING FOR THE ROPES!! BUT EXTREME’S TORQUE IS DISCOURAGING HER FROM DOING SO!! ANDREA IS TRYING HER BEST!! BUT LOOK AT THIS!! EXTREME GRABS HER EXTENDED ARM AND USES IT AGAINST ANDREA!! SHE IS USING ANDREA’S OWN FUCKING ARM TO CHOKE HER OUT! THIS IS BRILLIANT!! IMAGINE HOW EMBARRASSING IT WOULD BE FOR ANDREA TO SUBMIT TO THIS!! EXTREME HAS A SMIRK ON HER FACE AS SHE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT SHE IS DOING AND WHAT COULD BECOME OF IT WHEN IT IS ALL SAID AND DONE!! ANDREA’S SCREAMS ARE SILENCED BY HER OWN ARM AS YOU COULD HEAR THEM FAINTLY!! THE CHAMPION HAS HER LOCKED DOWN AS THIS COULD BE THE END OF THIS MATCH!!

Rich Russillo: ANDREA WITH A PUNCH TO THE EYE!! THE MODIFIED VERSION OF THE AVA LOCK HAD A HUGE FLAW THAT HAD ANDREA’S LEFT HAND FREED UP!! ANDREA DESPERATELY LIFTED UP HER HAND FOR A PUNCH AND HIT RIGHT ON THE BUTTON ON THE EYE!!

Persephone: EXTREME IS GRABBING HER EYE IN PAIN AS ANDREA NOW GETS UP TO HER FEET!! AND SHE CONNECTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE CHEST!! A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE FACE!! AND SHE LOOK TO KNOCK HER OUT WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE JAW!

James Peters: EXTREME GRABS HER FOOT AND SWEEPS THE OTHER LEG!! AND SHE IS GOING FOR THE AVA LOCK ONCE AGAIN!! BUT ANDREA DESPERATELY HOLDS ONTO DEAR LIFE ONTO THE SECOND ROPE!! LOOK AT THE LOOK OF CONCERN PLASTERED ALL OVER ANDREA’S FACE!! SHE HAD A LOT OF TROUBLE GETTING OUT OF THE AVA LOCK AND GETTING IN IT FOR THE SECOND TIME MIGHT DO THE JOB ON HER!! EXTREME IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO YANK HER OFF THE ROPE JUST AS MUCH AS ANDREA IS TRYING TO HOLD ON!! THIS IS THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP THAT IS ON THE LINE!! HISTORY IS UP FOR GRABS!! THESE WOMEN ARE PUTTING IT ON THE LINE!!

Persephone: EXTREME GRABS BOTH OF HER LEGS AND SUCCESSFULLY PULLS HER OFF THE TOP ROP-

James Peters: HOLYYY SHITTT!!!!

( When Extreme pulls Valentine off the second rope, Valentine uses the momentum to hover over her shoulders and hit the Atomic Blonde. )

James Peters: AATTTTOOOOOMIIIICCCC BLOOOONNNNDEEEE!!! ANDREA VALENTINE HITS THE INVERTED FRANKENSTEINER FROM ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE!! VALENTINE WITH THE BACKPRESS COVER!! THIS IS IT!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!! MS. EXTREME ARCHES UPWARDS TO KICK OUT OF THE COVER!! ANDREA VALENTINE NEARLY SURPRISED THE ENTIRE WORLD WITH THAT SHOCKING ATOMIC BLONDE SEQUENCE!! EXTREME DID NOT SEE THAT COMING!! SHE WAS INTENT ON PUTTING INTO THAT STF AND VALENTINE USED TO THAT HER ADVANTAGE TO HIT THAT QUIETLY IMPRESSIVE ATOMIC BLONDE FRANKENSTEINER!! WE HAVE SEEN AN UNLIMITED AMOUNT OF SCENARIOS WHERE ANDREA WAS ABLE TO HIT THAT ATOMIC BLONDE!! WE HAVE SEEN THAT SHE CAN HIT THAT FROM ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE, BUT SHE HAS NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE!! AND WE THOUGHT THAT WAS OVER, BUT THIS MATCH CONTINUES TO GO ON!

Persephone: Got to be kidding me.

James Peters: Andrea Valentine is starting to lose patience in this match. This match may have gone much longer than she anticipated. She thought it was over, everyone thought it was over. Valentine has taken the universal champion to her absolute threshold. TO HER LIMIT! She has proven every single one of her words she has said this week and all she has to do is hit another one of those Atomic Blondes! However, that isn’t what she is going for. Valentine steps through the ropes and climbs the turnbuckles. We all know what is she going for here! Extreme is gingerly getting up to her feet while Valentine is preparing to hit with what could win her the championship! Can it!?!?!

Rich Russillo: ANDREA VALENTINE CONNECTS WITH THE V-DAY!! THE JUMPING SOMERSAULT SENTON CONNECTS!

James Peters: NO!! EXTREME LEAPS UP ONTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND SHATTERS HER JAW WITH A KNEE STRIKE!! EXTREME WITH THE ULTIMATE INTERCEPTION AS VALENTINE NOW LOSES BALANCE IS NOW HANGING FROM THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE!! SHE IS HANGING TOWARDS THE RINGSIDE AREA AS EXTREME IS CONVENIENTLY STANDING ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE RIGHT AFTER THAT EAR RINGING KNEE STRIKE!! THE CHAMPION LEAPS INTO THE AIR!

Rich Russillo: A BLIND FURY!! EXTREME WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO THE HANGING CHALLENGER AND VALENTINE GOES CRASHING DOWN ONTO THE APRON!! OH MY GOD!! EXTREME QUICKLY GETS UP HER FEET AT RINGSIDE AND PUSHES VALENTINE INTO THE RING!! EXTREME ROLLS INTO THE RING AND FOLDS HER OVER!!

James Peters: VALENTINE IS FOLDED OVER LIKE AN ACCORDION AS EXTREME DESPERATELY PINS HER DOWN!! THE LEGENDARY REIGN LIVES TO SEE ANOTHER DAY!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Rich Russillo: NO!!! AND EXTREME IMMEDIATELY PUTS HER INTO THE SEATED FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! EXTREME CINCHES IN RED-HANDED AS VALENTINE NOW SCREAMS IN PAIN!! THIS COULD BE THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN!! EXTREME IS SCREAMING AS SHE IS PUTTING EVERYTHING SHE’S GOT IN APPLYING TORQUE AND PRESSURE TO HER RIGHT ARM!

James Peters: MS. EXTREME HAS ESTABLISHED HERSELF AS A SUREFIRE HALL OF FAMER AND SHE KNOWS THAT BY KNOCKING OFF ANDREA VALENTINE, THAT WILL MAKE THAT EVEN MORE CERTAIN!! THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION HAS BEEN DOMINANT!! SHE HAS MADE EVERYONE ACKNOWLEDGE HERSELF AS THE TRUE QUEEN OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING AND WE ARE SEEING EXACTLY WHY!! NO ONE IS AS DOMINANT AS EXTREME!! NO ONE HAS THE GUTS AND GALL LIKE OUR UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!! IT IS ON DISPLAY!

Persephone: ANDREA USES HER LAST RESERVE OF ENERGY TO SHIFT THE TIDE AND ROLL EXTREME UP INTO A SCHOOL-BOY COVER OFF THE SEATED FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! OH MY GOD!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

James Peters: OH MY!! ANDREA GOT HER!!

( Extreme kicks out and immediately transitions her back into the Red Handed submission hold. )

Rich Russillo: NO!!! EXTREME NEARLY LOST HER TITLE IN THAT FASHION, BUT SHE HAD THE WHEREWITHAL TO ESCAPE THAT SITUATION!! AND SHE PUT HER BACK INTO THE FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! COME ON!! WHEN IS THE OFF BUTTON ON ANDREA!! WHEN WILL ONE OF THESE GIVE UP!! ANDREA IS TRYING TO REACH FOR THE ROPES, BUT SHE IS LITERALLY RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! EXTREME IS SMILING MANIACALLY AS SHE CONTINUES TO APPLY TORQUE!

James Peters: ANDREA IS HINTING THAT SHE IS ABOUT TO TAP!! SHE IS ABOUT TO SMASH DOWN HER HAND, BUT SHE IS FIGHTING THAT TEMPTATION!! ANY NORMAL HUMAN BEING WOULD HAVE THROWN IN THE TOWEL AT THIS POINT!! BUT THIS IS EAW!! WE ARE FULL OF PEOPLE WHO ARE FAR FROM NORMAL HUMAN BEINGS!! THESE ELITISTS HAVE MORE HEART AND DETERMINATION THAN YOU THINK AND ANDREA SYMBOLIZES THAT!! EXTREME IS SO CLOSE TO ENDING THIS AND SEEING ANOTHER DAY, BUT ANDREA IS POURING EVERYTHING INTO THIS! SHE DID NOT COME THIS FAR TO LOSE!

Rich Russillo: AND SHE DIDN’T COME THIS FAR TO LOSE EXACTLY!! ANDREA’S FACE LIGHTS UP AS SHE STARTS TO LIFT EXTREME INTO THE ELECTRIC CHAIR!! EXTREME IS IN COMPLETE DISBELIEF AS ANDREA RUNS ACROSS THE RING TOWARDS THE CORNER!! AND SHE LAUNCHES THE CHAMPION INTO THE SKIES OFF THE ELECTRIC CHAIR!! AND EXTREME GOES CRASHING INTO THE TURNBUCKLES WITH AN ELECTRIC CHAIR TOSS!!

Persephone: WHAT A COLLISION INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! ANDREA VALENTINE WITH A LAST DESPERATE ELECTRIC CHAIR TOSS AS SHE IS GRABBING HER LEFT ARM IN ABSOLUTE PAIN!! Ms. Extreme is barely able to get up to her feet as VALENTINE RUNS THE ROPES!! AND VALENTINE JUMPS AND GRABS HER NECK!! EXTREME GETS DRIVEN DOWN WITH THE CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER!

James Peters: EXTREME COUNTERS THE CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER WITH STANDING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!! OH M GOD!! EXTREME JUST CAVED A HOLE INTO THE CHEST OF VALENTINE!! EXTREME BRINGS VALENTINE UP TO HER FEET AND LEAVES HER BENT OVER IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! EXTREME JUMPS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE

James Peters: ANDREA COUNTERS WITH ANOTHER ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE JAW!! BUT WAIT!! EXTREME HAD IT SCOUTED AND GRABS HER FOOT!! BUT ANDREA SPINS AROUND AND DECIMATES EXTREME WITH ANOTHER KICK!!

Rich Russillo: AND IT CONNECTS RIGHT ACROSS THE JAW!! EXTREME IS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS AS ANDREA NOW RUNS THE ROPES!! ANDREA MOVES AROUND THE CHAMPION IN TILT-A-WHIRL MOTION!! AND SHE ENDS IT WITH GRABBING HER HEAD!!

AND SHE JUMPS AROUND AND SLAMS HER DOWN WITH THE CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER!! LOVE HAZE CONNECTS!! THIS HAS TO BE IT!! NEW CHAMPION!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Persephone: DING! DING! DING!

Rich Russillo: NO!!! EXTREME GETS HER SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST MILLISECOND!! YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!! EXTREME IS OUT OF IT!! HOW DID SHE KICK OUT!! HOW DID SHE GET HER SHOULDER UP!! YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!?!? THE CHALLENGER HAS HER JAW DROPPED TO THE VERY FLOOR AS THE CHAMPION IS STILL IN THIS!! EVERYONE IS ON THEIR FEET HERE IN HOUSTON, TEXAS AS THEY ARE WITNESSING A CLASSIC IN THE MAKING!

James Peters: Andrea Valentine gets up to her feet and just stands in the middle of the ring. Ms. Extreme lies below her as Valentine looks down at what she has done to her. Valentine with a smirk on her face as she steps away from Extreme and looks at the top turnbuckle. These competitors have relied on the top turnbuckle so many times during this match that it has to be the key to victory! Valentine steps through the ropes and climbs the turnbuckles! This has to finis this match! Valentine with a look on her face that you can tell that this is going to be a last ditch effort!

Rich Russillo: VALENTINE WITH THE V-DAY SOMERSAULT SENTON ONTO THE CHAMPION!! IT IS ACADEMIC FROM HERE!

Persephone: THE CHAMPION INTERCEPTS THE V-DAY WITH A FOREARM SMASH ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! VALENTINE IS STUNNED AS EXTREME NOW SPINS AROUND AND STUNS HER EVEN MORE WITH A DISCUS FOREARM SMASH!! ANDREA VALENTINE IS OUT OF IT NOW!! NOW FINISH THIS MATCH NOW!! YES!

James Peters: Ms. Extreme joins Andrea on the top turnbuckle and grabs her left leg.. What the hell is she thinking here! ANDREA IS HUNG UPSIDE DOWN AS EXTREME HAS HER ON THE STRETCH MUFFLER ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! WHAT IS THIS!?! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!

Rich Russillo: EXTREME HAS THE REDRUM CINCHED ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! THIS IS UNIQUE, BUT I DON’T THINK THIS IS ENTIRELY SAFE FOR ANDREA VALENTINE!! SUBMISSION DON’T COUNT WHEN IT IS USED IN THIS CONTEXT!! EXTREME CONTINUES TO STRETCH HER LEGS AS VALENTINE IS STARTING TO LOSE CONSCIOUSNESS!!!

James Peters: EXTREME NOW BEGINS TO GET HIGHER BY APPLYING THE STRETCH MUFFLER ON THE RINGPOST!! WHAT THE HELL!! EXTREME CONTINUES TO APPLY THE STRETCH MUFFLER AS THE REFEREE IS TELLING HER TO LET GO OF IT!! EXTREME IS MAKING SURE THAT ANDREA VALENTINE DOESN’T CHALLENGE FOR THIS CHAMPIONSHIP AGAIN!!

Rich Russillo: ANDREA VALENTINE IS DEFENCLESS RIGHT NOW!! AND EXTREME CONTINUES TO APPLY THE REDRUM!! COME ON!! MS. EXTREME IS DESTRO-

( Valentine uses her other leg to somehow get the leg scissors on Extreme on the top turnbuckle… )

Rich Russillo: WHAT THE HELL!! ATOMIC BLONDE OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!! THE AVALANCHE ATOMIC BLONDE CONNECTS!!

James Peters: YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!! VALENTINE GRABS HER LEFT LEG AND ARM IN PAIN AS SHE SLIDES OVER AND PAINFULLY LIFTS UP THE LEG!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “Roll With Me” by Charli XCX hits to a gigantus pop. Everyone in the crowd jumps to the air and raises their arms in complete shock as Andrea Valentine tirelessly rolls off Ms. Extreme’s upper body. Valentine gets up onto one knee and is handed the EAW Universal Women’s Championship. She kneels and looks at the championship. She begins to get emotional realizing that she is finally back at the top of the mountain before she raises the championship and soaks in the moment. )

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER.. AND NEWWWWW EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION… ANDDDREEEEEEEEEEAAA VALLENNTINEE!!

Rich Russillo: Andrea Valentine is back on top of the world! She has finally established herself back on the throne and she has absolutely earned it. What a match that was! Extreme and Valentine tore each other apart and went an eye for an eye. Extreme was on the cusp of indefinitely ending Valentine and I have zero idea where Valentine was able to pull of that kind of counter!

James Peters: I can’t believe it! Valentine has finally proven the doubters wrong! It was ultimately the daredevil tendencies of The Red Queen that was able to spill right all over her face! Extreme was hell bent on destroying Valentine and proving that she is the undisputed women’s champion in all of professional wrestling, and her ego and willing to prove that statement was the death of her.

Persephone: It’s over :blessed: :whew: :wow: :whoa: :mjlol2:

( Andrea Valentine continues to raise her championship on the top turnbuckle before she steps through the ropes and begins walking up the ramp. Ringside personnel shine light on Ms. Extreme’s eyes to check for any concussions. The camera focuses in as she looks up at Andrea Valentine celebrating on the stage. She looks down as expected, but she shakes her head and smiles in respect for the new EAW Universal Women’s Champion. Valentine walks to the back and a replay of the finish plays. )

Rich Russillo: Let’s look at that finish once again. Ms. Extreme might have gotten too cocky with applying that stretch muffler onto the top turnbuckle. I believe she was going to turn it into some kind of avalanche slam, but she zeroed in on ensuring the demise of Andrea Valentine. Valentine was surely silenced at the point, but Valentine reached deep into her last energy reserve and was able to get the leg scissors for one would turn out to be a historical Atomic Blonde for the career of Andrea Valentine!

( It doesn’t go to commercial break as the cameras follow Andrea Valentine being serenaded by various Elitists backstage. She hugs some of her friends and family and begins to walk back to her locker room. )

( Andrea Valentine lets out an exhausted sigh as she turns the corner to see a familiar figure leaned up against a supply crate. )

( Madison Kaline steps into the camera’s view and stands right in front of the new champion. Both women have an intense staredown into each other’s eyes. Kaline smirks as her eyes travel down towards the championship kept tight by Andrea. Kaline continues to look at the title before staring right back at her. )

Madison Kaline: Congrats. Champ.

( Madison Kaline says only that. She turns around and walks out of the scene to leave Andrea Valentine to wonder. It fades to elsewhere. )

(“Recreant” by Chelsea Grin begins to blast through the speakers as the crowd boos the Specialists Champion, Ximena Velasquez, who walks out with a serious look on her face as she confidently walks down the ramp.)

Stephie Love: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME…THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION… “LA DIOSA”…XIMENA VELASQUEZ!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: We are in the presence of the Specialists Champion this week as she plans to have the final say to Serenity Valdez, but I’m surprised that she’s showing her face around here, knowing what she did last week.

(LAST WEEK: It highlights Ximena Velasquez’ promo on Serenity Valdez after Serenity’s match with Nariko. It shows Ximena in Serenity’s whole office, taking her shit as she ends up attacking Macy Miller, Serenity’s intern. It demonstrates Ximena woman-handling the intern before the security rushes to Macy’s aid as Ximena leaves her a beaten mess.)

Jake Mercer: Macy Miller is Serenity Valdez’s intern, but she was an innocent victim in this situation. It wasn’t necessary for Ximena Velasquez to turn her sights to her, but she had to match a point to Serenity and it seems like she may have?

(The scene pans back to ringside.)

Stew-O: Just imagine what happens when Serenity Valdez gets her hands on Ximena Velasquez. I think that Ximena is going to regret what happened to her.

(“Recreant” fades as the crowd begins to boo at the Specialists Champion, who may not be so popular with the EAW Universe at the moment, but Ximena Velasquez doesn’t give a damn as she feels like she did what she had to do in order to send a message to her Pain for Pride opponent, Serenity Valdez.)

Ximena Velasquez: I’ve heard the comments about what I did to Macy Miller the previous week. Some think that I should be arrested. Others think that I should be severely punished for my actions. A good chunk of people believed that I was way out of line and that I had no right to bring an innocent woman into this mess. While it seemed to be one of the controversial things that I did, it should be served as a warning for Serenity Valdez and what’s to come for her at Pain for Pride.

(The crowd begins to boo Ximena Velasquez. It seems like there is quite a bit of fan in the arena tonight who think what she did wasn’t the most popular thing to do and bringing someone innocent into her feud with Serenity Valdez was the wrong move on her part. Ximena keeps a serious composure as she continues on with her promo.)

Ximena Velasquez: I have tried to tell Serenity what I’ve tried to tell her from the very beginning and that’s the fact that I am way out of her league and she’s ultimately fighting a battle she knows that she’s not going to win. Now, I understand that Serenity has gone this far already fighting for the Specialists Championship and she’s too far to go back, but I really don’t give a damn. ‘La Serpiente’ can say what she wants to say, but ultimately, ‘La Diosa’ is still going to be la campeona and there is nothing that is going to change that. In the last several months that we’ve crossed paths with each other, Serenity has done nothing to prove her otherwise and that’s crucial. This is Pain for Pride that we’re talking about. This is the most important show of the year. Legends are made in events like this. Where the stakes are as high as they are with our match, this further shows me that Serenity Valdez has no idea what she got herself into. If the reality didn’t set in last week about the type of woman I am, then, I’m not sure what’s going to make her realize that. I have tried to warn her about the woman I am. I have tried to make her see that facing me in the ring is nothing to joke about and when it comes to Pain for Pride, it’s no laughing matter to me. This lead up to the event is no laughing matter. It’s been established the moment that it got personal. I had nothing wrong with the fight that this could have been, but from all the interferences in the Iconic Cup to bringing in people who had no factor in this situation between the two of us, it has brought out an ugly side of me that people are going to be wishing remained inside me.

Ximena Velasquez: I attacked Serenity’s intern because I wanted to hurt you. I wanted to go into your office, into the place where you have made a cute little #TeamSerenity area and I wanted to destroy it. I wanted to be in the heart of the whole ‘Serenity Agenda’ that you have shoved down everyone’s throats for the past couple of months and make sure that I put a stop to that before it gets bad. It’s bad that you’re given this opportunity in the very first place. I admit it’s not the decision that I would make in this day and age. I figured that it wouldn’t lead to all of this and for this to be the match I’m walking into Pain for Pride, but I’m ashamed that I needed to cross that line, but when it comes to keeping this Specialists Champion on my shoulder, I need to take risks and I need to do what I can to make sure that you don’t come anywhere near my title. I have busted my ass off all season to make ‘Season XV’ a reality and I’ll be dammed if it comes to an end thanks to a barking chihuahua, who can’t contain her anger long enough before getting herself hurt. At least, I was able to hurt her where it mattered and that’s the heart—

(“Dolla Sign Slime” by Lil Nas X & Megan Thee Stallion cuts Ximena Velasquez mid-sentence as the crowd stands up to their feet as Serenity Valdez comes out, looking pissed off and ready to fight Ximena and honestly, it’s taking a lot from her not to do that and save it all for Pain for Pride.)

Serenity Valdez: I’m trying to check myself. I’ve been checking myself all week, trying to contain my anger. It’s taking so much out of me not to punch you in the fucking face at the moment.

(Serenity Valdez pauses, really trying her best to keep her composure and not do anything that she is going to regret or get her hurt a week before the biggest match of her entire career. Meanwhile, Ximena Velasquez is looking quite amused with Serenity trying to keep her anger in check, knowing that it’s taking so much out of Serenity not to lash out and attack her. Serenity is struggling with what she wants to say next without pissing herself off in the process, but she wants to get her message across at the same time.)

Serenity Valdez: Last week, you made the biggest mistake of your career by doing what you did. You had no right to go into my hometown, my office, lay a hand on my intern, and the fact that you did that, just screams how desperate you are, Ximena. You think that it makes you look all cool and tough, but I look into your eyes and I see how scared you are of me. You’re scared of how I’ll measure up to you at Pain for Pride. I understand that I’m not the tallest person here, but my potential is higher than yours could have ever been. I am a shining star who has been sitting in the back, just waiting for her opportunity to pull the trigger and it’s going to happen real soon. The shit that you did not only shows how desperate you are, but how low you’re willing to go. If that’s so, then I will as well. I got no problem with showing you a side of myself that even you haven’t seen before and that will spell trouble for you, Ximena when we face off inside the ring. I have made a vow to not only myself, but everyone that I will be Specialists Champion and I still stand by that 100%.

Ximena Velasquez: It seems like you’re going to be disappointing a lot of people next weekend when you fail at capturing the Specialists Championship. You think that anything that you say is going to make me think of you any differently. If you have this ‘different side’ to yourself, you could have shown that several weeks ago and perhaps, I would have thought differently of you. Instead, you decided to throw it in the middle of your ‘promo’ — which I wouldn’t call that anyway— and expect me to think of you as a threat to my championship? No, you are nothing more than a little girl who didn’t expect this to happen and now, you’re just coming up with anything at your disposal to get me to think that you’ve been waiting to bring this new side to yourself?

Serenity Valdez: I didn’t want for this side to come out, but in order to put you down, I had no other choice, but to come into this match swinging and showing you that you can’t expect to cross a line with me and not get your ass beat. You can talk about your strength, height, and how you’re ‘La Diosa’ and it was your destiny to be a champion and make your people proud of you, but I bet your people would look down on what you did and disown your ass in a heartbeat—

Ximena Velasquez: I would be careful about what you say next because pissing me off and ruining your chances of heading to Las Vegas is something that you shouldn’t want for yourself.

(Serenity Valdez chuckles at that slight threat before continuing, looking up at Ximena Velasquez’s eyes. She scuffs at the Specialists Champion and rolls her eyes.)

Serenity Valdez: You know? This whole ‘Season XV’ thing was nice and all, but at Pain for Pride, I am going to rid EAW of this so-called ‘flavor of the week’ garbage and send you packing. EAW is going to usher in the ‘Era of La Reina’ as the ‘Serenity Agenda’ will come to life and in front of the world to see and nothing is going to stop me from doing that.

(“Dolla Sign Slime” begins to blare through the speakers again as Serenity Valdez exits the ring. She walks her way up the ramp, but her eyes haven’t left Ximena Velasquez, who stares coldly at her challenger, raising the Specialists Championship high in the air.)

Jake Mercer: Powerful statements from these two women who are more than wanting to get their so-called agendas to come full force in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Stew-O: These two won’t be able to make this a civil match and if they do, I’ll be surprised.

[SCREENBAR: KING OF ELITE 2022 – DR. BETHANY BLUE VS. MIKU SAKAI – EMPRESS OF ELITE FINALS]

(“Age-Age Money” by LADYBABY begins to blast across the sound system and a mixed reaction sounds from the crowd. The Simp Army, who have been camped out in Houston all week waiting to see their IDOL-GUN queens, can be heard loud and proud. Hundreds of them have rushed to the front of the stands, despite security doing their best to keep them at bay, but when the first finalist for the Empress of Elite crown steps on the stage, the Simps lose control. They are shaking and crying, and throwing roses and streamers at the ramp. Miku Sakai looks amazing and confident as she stands on the stage, soaking in the reaction of the crowd. After a moment, she takes a deep breath and heads towards the ring for the biggest match of her career to date.)

Stew-O: There’s been a huge debate raging all week over who’s the actual favorite to win this match. Obviously there is no fan base more loyal than Miku Sakai’s Simp Army, and they have gone above and beyond to make it known that there is no other woman in Elite Answers Wrestling who is worthy enough of being the Empress than the woman who is making her way to the ring right now.

Gavin Kirkland: Not only is she hot and sexy, but Miku has come into her own as a legitimate threat to any championship here in the land of Elite. She can stand toe to toe with the absolute best in this company, and she’s more than proven her worth as a singles champion and dual threat to any division when she beat the very woman she faces here tonight for the Specialists Championship back at Territorial Invasion. If you want my opinion, and when you factor in that Miku does indeed have a win over Bethany, she is absolutely the favorite tonight to walk out of Houston as EAW’s first Empress since 2018.

Persephone: You know, I get it. I truly get it. For weeks it has made me absolutely sick to my stomach to agree with Mary S. Atlas about anything. But as I watch Miku get into the ring, she truly does look like a sick and ugly Gremlin.

Stew-O: :mjlol:

Gavin Kirkland: Rude.

(Miku stands in the ring now, where Bella Braxton waits to make the formal introductions after both women come to the ring. Miku allows the Simps to throw their streamers and flowers into the ring and she takes a seat on top of the turnbuckles in one of the corners. Her eyes focus on the beautiful, brand new, and extremely expensive Empress of Elite crown that was custom made just for the winner by Tiffany’s. Obviously she’s already picturing herself wearing it along with the Universal Women’s Championship.)

(A few seconds pass and Miku’s theme slowly fades out. Various ring crew members hit the area to clean up the flowers and streamers. As this goes on, the lights go out. A lone spotlight shines at the entrance way before the sounds of a heart beating begins to fill the stadium. The audience can’t help but react knowing who’s about to come to the ring and when the sound of beating heart flatlines, the chords of “Somebody Get Me A Doctor” by Van Halen plays throughout the arena. Dr. Bethany Blue walks out in her extravagant Doctor’s coat and shiny wrestling gear. She has a stethoscope around her neck. Tonight, she walks alone because if she’s meant to win this tournament and go on to become the Universal Women’s Champion in the future, she is going to do it all on her own.)

Gavin Kirkland: :whew: I’m feeling faint, guys! My blood pressure is getting the better of me! Somebody better get the doctor over here so she can check on me.

Persephone: Shut your bitch ass up. Dr. Bethany Blue is no prize herself considering the best she could do is Adam Lucas :mjlol:, but even she wouldn’t ride you with someone else’s vagina.

Stew-O: I definitely understand why a lot of people view Miku as the favorite in this match, but this is one time that I just can’t bet against Dr. Bethany Blue. Tonight is her time to finally silence all of her critics, as well as any doubts she may have about herself, and capture the Empress of Elite crown. We all know how much passion Bethany has for this business, and her journey over the last couple of years has been one full of ups and downs. A lot of people believe that she should have already become a world champion, but the opportunities just haven’t lined up for her. I spoke to her earlier today, and she told me that she’s never been more focused on a single match before than she is on this one tonight. She got the opponent she wanted. She’s got the prize that will catapult her towards achieving her dream of becoming the Universal Women’s Champion.

(Dr. Bethany Blue stops for a moment before making her way up the steel ring steps. She looks out at the crowd and takes it all in before schooling her features. Whatever she’s feeling and whatever she’s thinking is for her and her only. She makes her way up the steps and gets into the ring, not looking at Miku just yet. Bethany heads to the ropes and looks down at the Empress of Elite crown that waits for the winner. She wants it, and she wants it bad. She finally turns and gazes at Miku, who holds her hand up in the shape of a ‘L’. Bethany fights to keep from reacting, and as her music fades out and the lights come back up, Bella steps forward for the intros.)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Bella Braxton: AND IT’S THE FINALS OF THE 2022 EMPRESS OF ELITE TOURNAMENT!!!!

(This gets an insane reaction from the crowd. For the first time in four years, EAW is going to crown a new Empress!)

Bella Braxton: THE WINNER OF THE MATCH WILL RECEIVE THE EMPRESS OF ELITE CROWN, HAND-CRAFTED AND CUSTOMIZED JUST FOR THIS TOURNAMENT BY TIFFANY AND CO, AND A FUTURE SHOT OF HER CHOOSING AT THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP!

(This elicits another huge pop from the crowd.)

Bella Braxton: AND NOW THE COMPETITORS! INTRODUCING FIRST, TO MY LEFT… SHE IS A FORMER UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION AND SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! FIGHTING OUT OF FUKI, JAPAN… WEIGHING IN AT 110 POUNDS… MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU SSSSSSSSSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(It’s the Simp Army and their cheers that drown out any other reaction that could possibly be heard. Miku, who remains perched on top of the turnbuckles waves and blows little kisses to the simps, who all fight over them. Once the noise dies down, Bella continues.)

Bella Braxton: AND HER OPPONENT, TO MY RIGHT… SHE IS A FORMER INTERWIRE AND SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! FIGHTING OUT OF BOCA RA-

(Bella never gets to finish.)

Stew-O: HEY! MIKU SAKAI DIDN’T BOTHER WAITING FOR THE OTHER INTRODUCTION!!!!! SHE JUST FLEW OFF THE TOP ROPE AND NAILED DR. BETHANY BLUE IN THE BACK WITH A DROPKICK!

Persephone: :oh: Maybe this match won’t be so shitty after all.

Gavin Kirkland: MY FAVORITE ASIAN SENSATION JUST SENT THE GOOD DOCTOR INTO THE ROPES AND NOW MIKU IS UNLOADING ON BETHANY! SHE IS HAMMERING AWAY WITH FOREARM SHOTS TO THE BACK OF BETHANY’S HEAD AND BETHANY IS DOWN IN THE CORNER AND TRYING TO COVER UP! THE REFEREE IS IN THERE AND HE IS PULLING MIKU AWAY FROM BETHANY, BUT MIKU GRABS THE REFEREE BY THE SHIRT AND SHAKES HIM!!!!

Miku Sakai: (off-mic) RING THE BELL, SIMP!!!

Stew-O: MIKU SHOVES THE REFEREE AWAY AND RIPS AT DR. BLUE’S COAT! SHE PULLS IT UP OVER BETHANY’S HEAD AND SHE IS PUNCHING HER IN THE STOMACH! THE STUNNED REFEREE IS CALLING FOR THE BELL BUT MIKU HASN’T LET UP ON BETHANY AT ALL!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Gavin Kirkland: MIKU PULLS BETHANY OUT OF THE CORNER AND SPIKES HER HEAD RIGHT IN THE MAT WITH A DDT!!!! MIKU FLIPS HER OVER AND GOES FOR THE QUICK COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Persephone: Boo. DoCtOr Blue got the shoulder up.

Stew-O: Miku slaps the mat in frustration and shoots a glare at the referee. With the history between these two women and that infamous Territorial Invasion match in the back of both of their minds, it doesn’t really surprise me to see Miku try and get an early advantage. She is on top of Bethany right now, striking her with forearms to the face, and the good doctor is doing her best to try and shake off this onslaught right now.

Persephone: I guess Miku didn’t want to hear that dumbass THE… M… D chant during the intros so she decided to kill it :wow:. I like it. I don’t like Miku. But I like the fuckery she is bringing to the table at the moment.

Gavin Kirkland: Right now, I’m just picturing Miku on top of me and pounding me with forearm shots. Except she could use her tiny fist and pound my asshole instead.

Stew-O: WHOA!

Persephone: :mjwhat:

Gavin Kirkland: Miku finally rolls off Bethany, who tries to get to the corner of the ring. Miku grabs her by the jacket, but Dr. Blue wisely shakes the jacket off. Miku tosses it to the ground and storms over to Bethany, but Bethany sticks her head through the ropes and shakes her head.

Dr. Bethany Blue: (off-mic) You need to back off.

Stew-O: The referee steps in the middle, doing his job, and keeping these two women separated.

Persephone: NOT FOR LONG! MIKU WITH A CHEAP SHOT TO THE HEAD! She just sent the doctor right out of the ring and into the mat!!

Gavin Kirkland: Gahdamn, Miku Sakai did not come to fuck around tonight. She knows exactly what a title like Empress of Elite could do for her career.

Stew-O: She’s also going high risk already. MIKU IS ON THE TOP ROPE AND SHE COMES CRASHING DOWN ON TOP OF BETHANY WITH A FLYING CROSSBODY!! MIKU ROLLS OFF BETHANY AND SNATCHES HER UP BY THE HAIR! MIKU GOES TO THROW BETHANY INTO THE BARRICADES BUT BETHANY ELBOWS HER RIGHT IN THE STOMACH!!!

Gavin Kirkland: That’s the first bit of offense Dr. Blue managed to get in after being attacked from behind during the intros. Miku looks to fire back with a right hand but Bethany blocks and clocks her right in the jaw with a stiff looking punch! There’s no love lost between these two women and believe me, I’ve had hate sex fantasies featuring both of them, but I digress. That shot to the face has staggered Miku and Bethany seizes the moment and drives her face first into the LED ring post!

Persephone: The gremlin falls to the ground and Bethany looks pissed! She begins to stomp and kick Miku! She is stomping her head, her face, her bloated belly, and kicking her violently in the ribs! Bethany reaches down to grab Miku up, and she pulls her high in the air! All the blood is rushing to the tiny little brain of the former Unified Tag Team Champion and Bethany with a brain buster! Miku is sprawled out on the ground and Bethany rolls back into the ring to break up the count.

Stew-O: She’s definitely not staying inside the ring with a prone Miku on the outside. Bethany wants to inflict as much punishment on Miku as possible and she’s got her by the hair. Bethany drags Miku over towards our announce table and she just bashed the girl’s head into our booth!

Persephone: … I think I just got flicked with sweat and I’m super unhappy right now.

Gavin Kirkland: BETHANY SLAMS THE BACK OF MIKU’S HEAD INTO THE TABLE SEVERAL MORE TIMES! SHE TAKES MIKU AND THROWS HER INTO THE BARRICADES, AND SHE FOLLOWS UP WITH A RUNNING KNEE THAT SMASHES MIKU IN THE TEMPLE!

Stew-O: The referee has reached the count of seven, but Bethany is dragging Miku back to the ring now. She throws her deadweight inside and gets back in, AND THERE’S BETHANY WITH THE COVER!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Persephone: Miku kicks out! Even I knew that several shots to the head wasn’t gunna put that dumb bitch away. It’s not like she has anything upstairs anyway.

Stew-O: Miku attempts to sit up but Bethany is up and running the ropes! She comes flying at Miku with a basement style dropkick, and now it’s her turn to pummel Miku! Bethany unloading with lefts and rights, and Miku is kicking and thrashing underneath of her! Miku is doing whatever she can to try and push Bethany off, but the doctor is relentless right now. This tournament means the world to her, and so does the Universal Women’s Championship, and Dr. Bethany Blue with a final right hand that has taken the fight right out of Miku!

Gavin Kirkland: Bethany helps Miku up and she whips her into the corner! Bethany charges forward, but Miku is able to move! Bethany stops herself from crashing into the corner and Miku quickly snatches her by the waist! She is trying for a roll-up but Bethany catches her in the side of the head with an elbow! Miku relinquishes her grip and Bethany tosses her back into the corner! Corner clothesline makes sure Miku stays put this time and Bethany races around the ring and comes back at Miku with a beautiful dropkick! Miku is slumped over now, barely holding herself up, and the woman who tasted my cum once upon a time nearly takes her head off with an uppercut!!!

Persephone: That cum sock spot was so uncalled for, and that’s coming from me.

Stew-O: :yikes:

Gavin Kirkland: :mjgrin:

Persephone: Bethany follows the uppercut up with several clubbing blows to Miku’s chest, and she grabs her by the hair to drag her out of the corner. Miku with a desperate rake of Bethany’s eyes and she shoves her back, trying to take a few seconds to regroup. Bethany fires off a right hand, but Miku is able to block it, and she catches Bethany with a big boot to the face! Bethany falls back against the ropes, and Miku sees a chance to dump Bethany to the outside!

Stew-O: Nope! Bethany got her feet up to stop Miku in her tracks, and she immediately pushes herself off the ropes and goes on the attack! Miku is eating a ton of forearm shots to the face right now, and truly has no answers at the moment since Dr. Bethany Blue went on offense! Bethany with a knife edge chop to soften up Miku’s chest and she starts kicking her! The doctor is a little underrated when it comes to her striking ability in my humble opinion and you’re seeing why right now. Miku finally falls to her knees and Bethany with a nasty kick that nails Miku right upside the head! Miku falls to the side but Bethany elects not to go for the cover.

Gavin Kirkland: She goes right for the ropes instead, and she drives all the wind out of Miku’s chest with a diving knee drop from the second rope! Now she hooks the legs and goes for the cover!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Persephone: Gremlin kicks out!

Stew-O: Bethany goes for the arm and looks to help Miku up, but Miku is able to land two solid shots to Bethany’s gut. That just seems to annoy Bethany and she makes Miku pay by punching her right in the mouth! Bethany clubs Miku in the back a few times, but there’s a lot of fight left in the two-time champ! Miku reaches for the legs and she snatches Bethany to the ground! She looks to hook the waist, but Bethany slips out of it and counters with a headlock! Miku catches Bethany in the ribs, loosening up the doctor’s grip, and this time she does get the waistlock! Miku rolls Bethany over onto her shoulders!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Bethany quickly wiggles free before the referee can reach a count of two, and she gets her legs around Miku! Miku’s locked in a head scissors right now, but she uses her flexibility to flip backwards and slip out of it! Bethany looks a little surprised and eats a dropkick for her efforts! Miku with another pin on Bethany!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Stew-O: Kick out from Bethany!

Persephone: Miku wastes absolutely no time getting up and she brings Bethany with her! Miku with a sloppy looking suplex that puts Bethany down, and now she’s kicking the shit out of her! Miku targets the ribcage for a bit, and now she’s got the hair! She drags Bethany towards the corner and bashes M…I…D’s face into the turnbuckles! Miku does this a few more times before switching to shoulder thrusts to the gut! One day, I hope someone gets hit in the stomach so hard they throw up. That would be amazing.

Gavin Kirkland: Why not just watch one of them gag on lil Gav, who really isn’t that little right now? That’ll make ya throw up :mjlit:

Persephone: :scusthov:

Stew-O: They truly don’t pay me enough to call these tri-brand matches on Gawd.

Gavin Kirkland: Miku with the rapid fire chops to the chest and Bethany Blue is hurting right now! Listen to the Simp Army! They are going nuts with Miku firmly in control of this match! Miku kicks Bethany in the gut and goes for a DDT!

Stew-O: NO! Bethany blocks Miku from spiking her and she knees Miku in the gut! Miku let’s go to grip her stomach and Bethany replies with a double ax-handle that takes Miku to her knees! Bethany strikes her in the jaw with a knee and the back of Miku’s head slams into the turnbuckle! Miku grabs the ropes and tries to pull herself onto the apron, but Bethany has other plans! She pulls Miku towards the center of the ring and goes to pull h-

Persephone: SMALL PACKAGE AKA THE GAVIN! BETHANY’S SHOULDERS ARE PINNED!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHH-

Gavin Kirkland: THE FUCK YOU MEAN THE GAVIN?!

Stew-O: Bethany is able to kick out and both women scramble to their feet! Miku goes for a knee strike, but so does Bethany! Their knees collide, countering one another, and it’s Bethany who recovers first and snatches Miku’s arm! Forearm after forearm connects before Bethany jerks Miku close and slams her knee into the Simp Queen’s stomach! Bethany is looking for a stalling vertical suplex! She holds Miku up before slamming her down into the mat, and now Bethany has the arm! She is looking for an armbar, but Miku manages to get her hands locked! Bethany quickly switches gears and goes for the legs, but Miku gets her right in the knee with a wild looking kick!

Persephone: Bethany is not fucked by that pathetic excuse for a kick.

Gavin Kirkland: She grabs a hold of Miku’s leg and kicks her in the back of the knee! That’s the same leg that MaryBecca injured weeks ago prior to Miku’s quarterfinal bout for the Empress of Elite tournament against Sierra and it doesn’t shock me at all to see a smart and sexy woman like Dr. Bethany Blue target a part of Miku’s body that she knows was previously injured.

Stew-O: Bethany quickly drives Miku’s left knee into the mat and drops an elbow down on it. The good doctor is looking for a kneebar submission now, but Miku uses her free leg to start kicking away at Dr. Blue! Miku has locked into survival mode and Bethany has no choice but to let go. Miku quickly rolls to the ropes and is using them to try and pull herself back up.

Gavin Kirkland: If Bethany continues to target that knee, this match could end in absolute disaster and heartbreak for Miku Sakai. Bethany has shaken off the effects of those kicks and she’s going right for Miku! Miku greets her with an elbow to the face, but Bethany shrugs it off! She kicks Miku in the chest and then kicks her hands from the ropes! Bethany targets the left knee with a soccer style kick and Miku crumbles to the mat! Miku is holding her knee, and Bethany quickly grabs the left leg and wraps it around the ring ropes!

Referee: Come on, Bethany! One… two… three… four…

Persephone: Of course it would be stupid to cry about wanting a world title shot and then get disqualified once you’re finally competing for one, so unfortunately Bethany lets go of the illegal submission because no one around here has a sense of humor. Personally, I think she should have kept going and seen if this referee had any balls to disqualify her and end the entire Empress of Elite tournament like that :mjlol:

Stew-O: :mjlol: I can’t even imagine that would go over well with this crowd at all. They absolutely lost it when the match graphic featuring these two flashed across the videotron. They have definitely been looking forward to this highly anticipated rematch since Bethany and Miku won their semi-final matches against Ximena Valesquez and Nariko respectively.

Gavin Kirkland: My cute lil Japanese cookie rolls onto the apron but look at the tenacity of Bethany tonight :drakelike:! She’s gotten control of the leg again and she snaps Miku’s knee down across the middle rope! Miku falls to the outside and she is clutching that knee. Things don’t look good for Miku at all right now.

Persephone: If I were Bethany, and thank Gawd I’m not because the thought of Adam Lucas as a romantic partner makes me want to kill myself, I wouldn’t try and play to the crowd right now. I know she’s feeling herself even if her eye make-up is a little excessive, but she should probably just focus on ending this match as soon as fucking possible.

Gavin Kirkland: Why wouldn’t you want Adam Lucas as a boyfriend?

Persephone: Because I really don’t want to smell like stale beer and cheap cigarettes all the time. I’d rather have COVID a million times than ever touch him in any type of affectionate way.

Stew-O: Damn. You must be a closet DEDEDE fan who can’t let Pain for Pride 14 go or something.

Gavin Kirkland: Well, I do think Persephone is right for once. Bethany needs to get out there and destroy Miku’s hopes and dreams once and for all.

Stew-O: Well you can both relax because that seems to be exactly what’s on Bethany’s mind right now. She’s out of the ring and approaching Miku with caution. Miku is sitting up now and slamming her fist into the knee to try and get some feeling back into it. Miku knows something’s wrong with her right now, and Bethany cracks a cheshire-cat like smile. She stands in front of Miku, looking down at her with that evil smile.

Dr. Bethany Blue: (off-mic) Awww, looks like someone needs a doctor.

Miku Sakai: (off-mic) Eat shit, bitch.

Persephone: BETHANY SLAPS MIKU RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE FOR HER DEFIANCE AND SHE LAYS HER OUT WITH A BIG BOOT! BETHANY SNATCHES MIKU BY THE INJURED LEG AND DRAGS HER OVER TO THE RING STEPS! SHE SLAMS MIKU’S KNEE DOWN INTO THE STEPS AND NOW BETHANY IS BENDING DOWN TO GRAB MIKU! SHE DEADLIFTS HER UP, PLANTS HER BACK FIRST ACROSS THE STEPS, AND THEN SHE SLAMS THE BACK OF MIKU’S KNEE INTO THE STEPS!

Stew-O: Miku rolls to the ground, falling at Bethany’s feet, and Bethany kicks her right in the back of the head! Miku attempts to crawl away but Bethany kicks her in the head again and lands another kick to the knee. Bethany stomps on Miku’s back a few times before yanking her up by the hair and whipping her into the barricades! Bethany rushes towards Miku, looking for a running knee strike, but Miku! MIKU!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: MIKU SOMEHOW FOUND A WAY TO PUSH HERSELF OFF THE BARRICADES AND CUT BETHANY IN HALF WITH A SPEAR! THAT WAS AMAZING!!!!

Persephone: But what price did Miku just pay for that temporary stop to an even bigger problem? Her knee is hurt and she is having to use the ring skirt to pull herself up and roll back into the ring.

Stew-O: I think Miku is just hoping that Bethany stays down on the outside. She’s sitting in the corner now and trying to get some feeling back into her left leg.

Gavin Kirkland: The referee is up to a count of five, but I already see Bethany coming around on the outside. I think that spear definitely surprised her, but Miku wants this crown very badly.

Persephone: She looks frustrated with her situation right now and I’m sure it makes things worse seeing Bethany’s hands on the apron now. Bethany is going to make it back into the ring and now Miku is pulling herself up. She better get her shit together because this match is far from over.

Stew-O: Bethany dives back in the ring and Miku does the only thing she can do! She greets Bethany with kicks and stomps to the back and head! Miku is fighting through obvious pain right now to try and gain the advantage back in this match, but Bethany has grabbed a hold of her foot! Miku stomps down on Bethany’s hand with her injured leg and pulls Bethany up! She Irish whips her into the corner and strikes her with a running knee to the face! Miku grabs her own knee after the landing, but she quickly drives her shoulder into Bethany’s stomach!

Gavin Kirkland: I was just reminded of my vomit fetish again :noah:

Persephone: :francis:

Stew-O: (lets out a long, annoyed, and rather exasperated sigh)

Persephone: This time it’s Bethany who rakes the eyes, and she quickly throws Miku into the corner! Bethany with two absolutely brutal forearms that seemingly knock Miku silly, and she follows up with a devastating kick to Miku’s knee! It buckles, but Miku keeps herself from falling by grabbing the ropes, but Bethany shows absolutely no mercy by kicking Miku’s hands away! Miku falls to the ground, but Bethany quickly grabs her up, hooks her arms, and tosses her across the ring with a release double underhook suplex!

Gavin Kirkland: Bethany is quick to grab Miku by the leg and she drags her to the center of the ring. Bethany with a cover and hook of the leg!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRR-

Stew-O: Miku gets her shoulder up!

Gavin Kirkland: Bethany wastes no time going for her next move. Since exploiting Miku’s previously injured knee, Bethany seems to have formed a solid game plan. She grabs Miku’s legs and wraps her up in ‘Fractured’! This elevated variation of the Boston Crab is going to put a ton of pressure on Miku’s back, and I’m sure it doesn’t help that Bethany is contorting both knees as well.

Persephone: :francis: Not sure if Miku can afford to have a hurt knee AND back. How the fuck is her side gig gunna survive?

Stew-O: :mjlol: It’s not like she’s a sex worker.

Persephone: :usure:???

Gavin Kirkland: It’s absolutely destroying me to see Miku in so much pain and agony. If anyone is going to cause tears to form in her beautiful brown eyes, it’s going to be me as I punish her with my dick for being a goddamn tease.

Stew-O: Alright. I’ve had enough. Drop the shit and call the match.

Persephone: Yeah Gavin! Stop being a creep! At least I keep my fantasies about starring in a snuff film with Rex and Raven to myself. It’s my fantasy and my fantasy only to watch Rex fuck Raven one last time before I slit her throat and both of us bathe in her blood.

Gavin Kirkland: Bro…

Stew-O: 😑

(While the commentary breaks down, inside the ring, Miku Sakai finds herself in a pretty delicate position. This is the biggest match of her young career so far, and tapping out is not an option. The booing of the Simp Army is drowning out the cheers of the Bethany Blue supporters, and Miku closes her eyes, reaching for the ropes.)

Persephone: Why the fuck is she reaching for the ropes?? She’s not even close to them!

Stew-O: I think Miku Sakai knows that her only option is to try and get a rope break right now. Bethany has brutalized her so far in this match after she tried to gain the upperhand with an attack before the opening bell. It’s karma and Miku knows it, which is why she is gritting her teeth right now and trying to muscle herself up. I respect the fight, even if I don’t necessarily agree with IDOL-GUN’s actions.

Gavin Kirkland: Hell of an effort being displayed by Miku! She is literally clawing her way towards the ropes right now! No doubt she is feeding off the energy of the simps, and that is helping her find the energy to try and get the rope break.

Persephone: She’s close but her little T-Rex arms aren’t long enough to reach! Bethany is laser focused and she’s holding on to ‘Fractured’ as best she can, but Miku is annoyingly persistent. One-half of the Tag Team of the Year sees she only has a few more inches to go, and she summons everything she’s got left in the tank right now and lunges for the ropes!!!!

Stew-O: SHE MAKES IT! THE CROWD GOES WILD AS MIKU GETS HER HAND ON THE ROPES!

Gavin Kirkland: A sexy look of fury crosses Bethany’s face as the referee rushes over to her and calls for the break!

Stew-O: :damn:!!! BETHANY BRIDGES ALL THE WAY BACK, FOLDING MIKU UP LIKE AN ACCORDIAN! MIKU IS SCREAMING AND CLINGING TO THE ROPES AS BETHANY TRIES TO LITERALLY BREAK HER IN HALF!

Referee: (off-mic) LET GO NOW, BETHANY! ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR… FI-

Persephone: Jesus Christ. Bethany let’s go but I would say that the damage has been done.

Gavin Kirkland: I think Bethany senses that too because she jerks Miku away from the ropes and goes for a cover!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEE-

Stew-O: NOT YET! Miku rolls her shoulder up and Bethany can’t help but shake her head. I know that neither of these women will ever respect the other, but there has to be some kind of acknowledgement from them towards the other person’s competitive spirit. A lesser competitor would be down and out now, but Miku Sakai continues to remind all of us why she is the future of this business, and more importantly, why she should be considered for future Universal Women’s Championship opportunities.

Persephone: Well, the only future Bethany cares about is one that involves her becoming the Universal Women’s Champion, so I really don’t think she’s going to give Miku credit for anything other than being annoying.

Gavin Kirkland: Bethany gets Miku up and she tosses her into the corner. Running corner clothesline connects on Miku, and Bethany tosses a few forearms to the face in there for good measure. She grabs Miku, places her on the top turnbuckle, and lands a few right hands too!

Stew-O: I’m not sure what Bethany has in mind here, but it’s gotten Miku’s attention. She slams her head into Bethany’s, brutal headbutt right there, and lands a few right hands of her own!

Persephone: Bethany takes a couple of steps back and that allows Miku to land a kick right to Bethany’s face! Bethany quickly recovers and looks to land a clubbing blow to Miku’s chest, but Miku with another kick and she quickly reaches out and grabs Bethany by the hair! Miku whirls her around and wraps her up in a choke! Miku has a chokehold on Bethany and now the referee is forced to admonish her! Miku let’s go but only for a second and now she’s right back to choking Bethany!

Referee: (off-mic) :francis:

Miku Sakai: (off-mic) What?

Referee: ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR…

Gavin Kirkland: Miku releases the choke but she digs her fingers into Bethany’s eyes! ‘Feel Thy Wrath!’ :damn: Bethany is being blinded as Miku strikes Bethany in the back of the skull with a headbutt!!! She releases Bethany from her clutches, strikes her in the back of the head with her foot, and now Miku very carefully steps to the top rope! She is favoring her knee, but she senses the tides are turning in this match and she wants to capitalize! Miku dives off AND SHE BRINGS BETHANY TO THE MAT WITH A TOP ROPE HEAD SCISSORS!!!!

Stew-O: Miku motions for the crowd to make some noises as she grabs Bethany and rams her shoulder first into the corner! Miku follows up with a back rake, before turning Bethany around and stomping her down into a sitting position!

Gavin Kirkland: She is finally smiling again! Oh my god… OH MY GOD! DID SHE JUST PULL HER TIGHTS BETWEEN HER CHEEKS???

Persephone: :mjlol: Well she did tell Bethany to eat her ass earlier.

Gavin Kirkland: OH MY GOD! I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO JEALOUS OF DR. BETHANY BLUE BEFORE! MIKU SAKAI WITH ‘EAT MY ASS’ LITERALLY!!! SHE IS RUBBING HER PERFECT, PORCELAIN, TIGHT LITTLE ASS IN THE DOCTOR’S FACE!!!! PLEASE FOLLOW UP WITH ‘MUSTACHE RIDE’! PLEASE! PLEASE GAWD LET THE BRONCO BUSTER BE NEXT!!!

Persephone: Well, looks like tonight is your lucky night, Gavin! Miku is sending simps everywhere into a frenzy as she hits Bethany with the Bronco Buster!

Stew-O: Miku climbs off Bethany, who is clearly in a state of disarray right now and she pulls her up. Miku with a running bulldog to plant Bethany right in the middle of the ring and she goes for the cover!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TT-

Gavin Kirkland: :blessed: THE MATCH CONTINUES! BETHANY GOT THE SHOULDER UP!!!! I REPEAT, THIS DREAM MATCH CONTINUES BECAUSE BETHANY GOT THE SHOULDER UP!

Persephone: That wasn’t really worth a repeat.

Stew-O: Miku knows that this is the opening in the match she has been waiting for. She thinks for a moment, and then pulls the doctor up. She looks for a suplex, but Bethany is able to block it. Miku hammers away on Bethany’s back, forcing her down to the mat, before nailing her in the jaw with a knee strike! Notice how Miku made sure to use the right leg, saving the left one, and she rips Bethany up by the hair and drags her face all the way across the ropes until she’s got Bethany in the corner!

Persephone: Miku chops the shit out of Bethany before slapping her right across the kisser! Miku with another chop to the chest, followed up by another slap to the face! Bethany is getting pissed, but Miku with another chop and slap combination! Bethany goes right for Miku’s throat, attempting to choke her, but Miku slams her fist into Bethany’s stomach as hard as she can and knocks the fight right out of her! Miku grabs hold of the ropes and drives her foot under Bethany’s chin for a foot choke!

Gavin Kirkland: This man is really earning his money tonight. He’s had to administer plenty of counts tonight. Miku breaks at the count of four but she doesn’t let up at all! My spicy, feisty OnlyFans Queen stomps Bethany down into a sitting position! PLEASE DO ANOTHER STINK FACE, QUEEN! PLEASE!

Stew-O: I think Miku has something else in mind because she’s backed all the way into the opposing corner! She tests her left leg for a second before sprinting forward and she leaps on Bethany!!! DOUBLE KNEES TO THE CHEST!!! THAT SURELY KNOCKED ALL THE WIND OUT OF THE FORMER INTERWIRE AND SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! MIKU WITH BETHANY’S HAIR AND SHE RAKES BETH’S FACE DOWN THE LENGTH OF THE ROPES ONCE AGAIN!

Persephone: :yikes: I could never imagine having a rope burn across my perfect face. That sounds about as bad as a papercut to be honest.

Gavin Kirkland: Miku stomps on the back of both knees and Bethany is forced down into my favorite position for a woman! Miku backs up just a bit, lining Bethany up execution style, and she drives her good knee into the back of Bethany’s skull! Bethany slumps forward, throat first across the ropes, and Miku drives her foot into Bethany’s back and starts to choke her!

Referee: (off-mic) OH MY GOD, STOP!

Miku Sakai: (off-mic) Disqualify me. I dare you. I know you subscribe to my OnlyFans because one of my simps caught you looking at the pictures of IDOL-GUN wearing only the Unified Tag Team Championships with Danny Tanner.

Referee: (off-mic) Oh.

Stew-O: Welp.

Gavin Kirkland: I’ve seen those pictures too 🥰.

Persephone: The referee seems to have forgotten he’s supposed to count, but then again, he belongs to Voltage. If they’re not made of glass, then they don’t know how to do their job, so I guess he’s just going to let them fight.

Stew-O: Funny how he does that when Miku has the advantage :mjpls:

Persephone: Like Bethany is some paragon of virtue whenever she competes :mjpls:.

Gavin Kirkland: Miku finally tires of choking Bethany and she slips between the ropes. Miku is on the apron right now and she is bringing Bethany, who’s still inside, back to a vertical position. Miku wraps Bethany’s arm around her neck and she’s looking for a suplex! If she suplexes Bethany out of the ring and down onto the ground, that could do it!

Stew-O: :lupe: That’s exactly what she’s trying to do, and Bethany can feel that she’s in danger. Bethany tries to lift Miku up, but Miku blocks that by placing one of her own feet between the ropes! She punches Bethany in the skull and finally Miku is able to get Bethany up in the air! MIKU WITH AN IMPRESSIVE SHOW OF STRENGTH AS SHE LIFTS BETHANY IN THE AIR AND LET’S HER FALL RIGHT ONTO THE GROUND!

Crowd: (dramatically gasps and clutches their pearls)

Persephone: That’s a rather dramatic reaction from the crowd, but I guess they’re shocked to see Bethany flopping around on the ground like a fish. She is violently convulsing right now and grabbing at her lower back :mjlol:

Stew-O: I honestly can’t believe Miku had enough strength to get Bethany up in the air and let her drop like that. That was incredible, and that might have given her the edge she needs to go ahead and finish this thing off. The Empress of Elite tournament has been full of some impressive matches, and it doesn’t surprise me to see these two delivering another classic tonight.

Gavin Kirkland: :lupe: GUYS! GUYS! MIKU JUST TOOK A LEAP OF FAITH OFF THE APRON AND SHE JUST FLATTENED BETHANY WITH A SENTON! MIKU IS BACK TO HER FEET AND SHE’S GOT THE DOC! MIKU THROWS BETHANY BACK INTO THE RING AND SHE DIVES ON TOP OF HER FOR THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEE-

Persephone: NOPE!

Stew-O: BETHANY’S NOT DONE YET!

Gavin Kirkland: Miku slams her hand down on the mat out of sheer frustration. I think she kinda knew it wasn’t enough but that doesn’t mean she didn’t have even the smallest shred of hope that it would be enough to get her the Empress of Elite crown she so desperately wants.

Stew-O: Instead of wasting time being frustrated, Miku should get Bethany up and finish her off.

Persephone: Well Captain Obvious, that is exactly what she’s about to do. Miku heads for the ropes, and I think she’s going to fly!!!! She gets herself set, screaming at Bethany to get up, and as we can all see, Bethany is slow to rise. She’s on spaghetti legs as she pulls herself up and looks around for Miku, BUT THERE GOES MIKU! FLYING GREMLIN! THE ‘WALK OF SHAME’! MIKU CONNECTS WITH THE DIVING CORKSCREW CUTTER AND SHE QUICKLY ROLLS OVER FOR THE COVER! WE HAVE A BRAND NEW EMPRESS OF ELITE!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: THE CROWD LOSES ITS SHIT AS DR. BETHANY BLUE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO KICK OUT! THEY ARE ALL ON THEIR FEET, APPLAUDING BETHANY’S EFFORTS, AS MIKU LOOKS AROUND IN COMPLETE AND UTTER DISBELIEF! ANY OTHER TIME, THAT MOVE WOULD HAVE ENDED THE MATCH, BUT THE EMPRESS OF ELITE FINALS ISN’T JUST ANOTHER MATCH!

Stew-O: No, it isn’t. The winner of this match gets the opportunity to have a shot at the Universal Women’s Championship whenever they want. The winner can hold onto that crown for an entire calendar year, or she can cash it next week if she wanted!

Persephone: Miku is slow to rise, but she brings Bethany with her. Bethany has taken a lot of punishment in the last little bit, but leave it to the Gremlin to still somehow fuck up the end of the match.

Stew-O: Now you know that wasn’t Miku’s fault. Bethany kicking out is just a testament to the type of competitor she is and how much this match means to her.

Persephone: 😴😴

Gavin Kirkland: Miku hooks Bethany in a side headlock, looking towards the ropes. I think she has her mind made up to take Beth out with a springboard bulldog, but Bethany begins to try and elbow her way free! She catches Miku in the ribs a few times, forcing Miku to let go of the hold, and Bethany whirls around, looking for a clothesline! MIKU DUCKS! SHE SNAPS BETHANY TO THE GROUND AND RUNS THE ROPES, BUT BETHANY IS UP AND SHE LEAPFROGS OVER MIKU!

Stew-O: MIKU TURNS AROUND TO SEE BETHANY CHARGING TOWARDS HER AND SHE FLIPS OVER BETHANY’S BACK, COMPLETELY AVOIDING A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE! MIKU TRIES TO TAKE DOWN BETHANY ON THE REBOUND, SHE’S GOT HER IN POSITION FOR AN ARMDRAG BUT HOLY SHIT! BETHANY FLIPS OUT OF IT AND LANDS ON HER FEET! MIKU HITS THE ROPES AGAIN, AND BETHANY SWINGS WILDLY, TRYING TO CONNECT WITH A CLOTHESLINE, BUT MIKU DUCKS! ANOTHER CLOTHESLINE TRY BY BETHANY, BUT ONCE AGAIN MIKU MANAGES TO AVOID BEING TAKEN DOWN!

Persephone: OH MY GOD THIS IS STUPID! CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HIT THE GROUND???

Gavin Kirkland: YOU JUST GOT YOUR WISH SEPHY! MIKU USES THE ROPES AS A SPRINGBOARD THIS TIME AND SHE SENDS BETHANY INTO THE CORNER WITH A SPRINGBOARD HEADSCISSORS!

Stew-O: BETHANY QUICKLY GETS HERSELF TOGETHER AND SHE SEES MIKU COMING AT HER FULL STEAM AHEAD! ‘MUSTACHE RIDE’ FOR THE SECOND TIME!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: :damn: NO! NO! NO! BETHANY MOVES AND MIKU CROTCHES THE ROPES! BETHANY GRABS MIKU BY THE HAIR AND SNATCHES HER OFF THE TURNBUCKLES, ROLLING HER UP!

Persephone: :noah: MIKU ROLLS THROUGH AND BOTH ARE BACK UP! MIKU THROWS A RIGHT HAND BUT BETHANY BLOCKS IT, AND CHOPS MIKU RIGHT ACROSS THE CHEST! BETHANY FOLLOWS UP WITH A NASTY BITCH SLAP, DOING EXACTLY TO MIKU WHAT MIKU DID TO HER EARLIER! BETHANY WITH ANOTHER CHOP, FOLLOWED BY A SLAP, AND MIKU IS FURIOUS! SHE CATCHES BETHANY IN THE JAW WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE, BUT SHE JUST TWEAKED HER KNEE AGAIN! MIKU’S INJURED KNEE IS WHAT CLIPPED BETHANY’S BIG ASS JAW, AND BETHANY IS ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE AND THERE IS ‘CODE BLUE’!

Stew-O: THE HEART PUNCH CONNECTS AND MIKU IS DEAD! DR. BETHANY BLUE QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: WHAT?!?!?!

Stew-O: Wow :wow:. Just wow :wow:. Do unto others, and just like Bethany kicked out of the ‘Walk of Shame’, Miku just kicked out of ‘Code Blue’. AGAIN, if this was any other match, with perhaps nothing on the line, then that right there would have ended the match. Dr. Blue would be having her hand raised right now, and we would be talking about how great this match was.

Persephone: It just couldn’t be that easy could it? Shit like this pisses me off.

Gavin Kirkland: I remember when IDOL-GUN first signed with EAW a year ago. They weren’t taken seriously as competitors at all due to their looks, their attitudes, and the fact both women are happy to flaunt their bodies. Makesmerealhappyahem. But it didn’t take either of them very long to show the entire world exactly what they are about. Together, IDOL-GUN were damn near unstoppable. But when Hikari Kanno went down with an injury, Miku Sakai had to step up, and she did so in a big, big way.

Stew-O: Trying to be as impartial as possible, I do agree with your assessment of Miku having stepped up. She showed us as the Specialists Champion and throughout this entire tournament just how skilled of a wrestler she is, and more importantly, how bad she wants this. She could have fucked off and pursued other things. She could have gone back to Japan and tended to Hikari, and both of them could have come back together. But she didn’t. Miku Sakai is the real deal, love her or hate her.

Persephone: Hate her! Hate Beth! I hate all of them, really.

Gavin Kirkland: That kick out seems to have left Bethany in an absolute state of rage. She wraps her hands around Miku’s throat and begins to slam the back of Miku’s head into the mat over and over again! The referee tries to intervene but Bethany isn’t happy about that at all :lupe:.

Dr. Bethany Blue: (off-mic) YOU DIDN’T STOP HER FROM CHOKING ME EARLIER! FUCKING DARE YOU TO RING THAT BELL!

Referee: (off-mic) Goddammit. Fine. Do whatever you want. I’m just here to call the finish.

Persephone: Wait… what did he just say? WHAT DID HE SAY??

Stew-O: THE REFEREE JUST TOLD BETHANY THEY COULD DO WHATEVER THEY WANTED!!!

Persephone: :blessed: :blessed: :blessed: IT ONLY TOOK US 84 YEARS TO GET TO THIS POINT BUT LET’S FUCKING GO! ALL BETS ARE OFF! LET THESE TWO FUCKING KILL ONE ANOTHER!!! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:

Gavin Kirkland: OH NO! I DON’T KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS! ON SHOWDOWN WE WRESTLE! WE DON’T GET TO DO WHAT WE WANT!!!!

Persephone: :voltage: :voltage: :voltage:

Stew-O: :dynasty: :dynasty: :dynasty:

Gavin Kirkland: :squeeze_bottle: :squeeze_bottle: :squeeze_bottle:

Stew-O: BETHANY FINALLY TIRES OF BASHING MIKU’S SKULL IN AND SHE FALLS BACK AGAINST THE MAT! SHE IS OVERCOME WITH EMOTION AND EXHAUSTION RIGHT NOW, BUT SHE HAS GOT TO FIND A WAY TO FINISH THIS MATCH OFF FOR GOOD!

Persephone: THE GREMLIN DOESN’T WANT TO DIE TODAY AND SHE IS STRUGGLING TO SIT UP RIGHT NOW! BETHANY SEES MIKU TRYING TO COLLECT HERSELF AND THAT IMMEDIATELY GIVES HER A BURST OF ENERGY! SHE KIPS UP TO HER FEET AND GRABS MIKU BY THE HAIR! SHE IRISH WHIPS HER INTO THE CORNER AND MIKU’S BACK HIT THOSE TURNBUCKLES HARD! BETHANY LOOKS FOR A FLYING FOREARM SMASH BUT MIKU GETS HER FOOT UP!

Gavin Kirkland: MIKU USED HER LEFT LEG AND NOW SHE’S LIMPING OUT OF THE CORNER! SHE TAKES BETHANY’S WRIST AND TOSSES HER INTO THE CORNER, AND MIKU NAILS BETHANY WITH A FOREARM TO THE JAW! BETHANY EATS SIX MORE OF THOSE PRECISE STRIKES BEFORE MIKU BACKS OFF AND TAKES OFF RUNNING! SHE’S CLEARLY HINDERED BY HER LEFT KNEE BUT MIKU WILL NOT BE DENIED! SHE NAILS A CORNERED BETHANY WITH A RUNNING YAKUZA KICK!!!!

Stew-O: MIKU PULLS BETHANY FROM THE CORNER AND SENDS HER INTO THE ROPES! SPINNING LEG LARIAT CATCHES BETHANY IN THE CHIN AND MIKU GOES FOR THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Persephone: BETHANY OUT AT TWO!

Gavin Kirkland: MIKU AND BETHANY RETURN TO A STANDING POSITION AND IT’S MIKU WHO SETS BETHANY UP FOR WHAT LOOKS TO BE A POWERBO-

Stew-O: NO! BETHANY’S GOT MIKU UP ON HER SHOULDERS! I THINK SHE MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR ‘GRADE C2’!

Persephone: WELL MIKU HAS OTHER PLANS! SHE JABS HER THUMB INTO BETHANY’S EYE, HITS THE GROUND, AND SHE’S GOT BETH! SHE’S GOT BETH AROUND THE WAIST AND THERE’S A GERMAN SUPLEX WITH A BRIDGING PIN!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWW-

Gavin Kirkland: OH NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! MIKU’S KNEE JUST GAVE OUT ON HER AND SHE COULDN’T HOLD THE BRIDGE! :lupe:

Stew-O: BETHANY SEES THAT MIKU IS ONCE AGAIN ATTENDING TO HER KNEE AND THAT GIVES HER A SECOND WIND! SHE GRABS AT MIKU AND STRUGGLES TO GET HER UP! MIKU IS FIGHTING BACK, PUMMELING BETHANY WITH ELBOWS AND THAT’S JUST NOT ALLOWING BETHANY TO GET MIKU SETTLED THE WAY SHE WANTS!

Persephone: BRO??? DID YOU SEE THAT???? DID THIS BITCH JUST SAY FUCK IT AND F-5 MIKU SAKAI???

Gavin Kirkland: LMAO YES! SHE REALLY JUST PUT MIKU DOWN WITH A MODIFIED VERSION OF THE F-5! I KNOW SHE WANTED TO HIT ‘GRADE C2’ BUT MIKU KEPT FIGHTING BACK! I THINK IT WAS MORE OF A DESPERATION MOVE THAN SOMETHING BETHANY HAD PLANNED BUT THAT COULD IT! BETHANY HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Stew-O: IT’S NOT OVER! MIKU GETS HER SHOULDER UP JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME AND NOW IT’S BETHANY’S TURN TO POUND THE MAT OUT OF SHEER FRUSTRATION! BOTH WOMEN CAN SEE THEMSELVES AT THE FINISH LINE RIGHT NOW, BUT IT CAN ONLY BE ONE OF THEM!

Gavin Kirkland: Bethany slumps over Miku’s fallen body for a moment before she finally gets herself up. She drags Miku with her, throwing a few half-hearted punches to Miku’s face just to make sure Miku knows who is in control of this match. Miku doesn’t have much left to give at this point and Bethany sends her into the corner! Bethany takes a deep breath before she just begins to stiff shot Miku all over her body! Shots to the face, head, chest, and stomach hit their mark, but it’s the brutal kicks to the injured left knee of Miku that are doing the most damage at this point. It’s sad to see it. I hate this for my Simp Kween 😢.

Stew-O: Bethany grabs Miku by the arm and Irish whips her across the ring! Miku’s knee goes out and she falls to the mat before even hitting the corner. You can see the realization that MaryBecca’s selfish actions have come back to haunt her in this finale, and she’s nothing more than a sitting duck for Bethany at this point. Miku reaches for the ropes while Bethany stalks her, and she starts trying to make it to the apron. Bethany lets Miku get within centimeters of the ropes before she grabs ahold of the injured leg and pulls her back to the center of the ring.

Persephone: Bethany is finally going to end this bitch for good. She’s looking for a figure four! That might just snap Miku’s knee in half and let us all be done with her for good!

Gavin Kirkland: :noah: I just want to run into the ring and help Miku right now. This is such a horrible ending. Have some mercy, Bethany, for crying out loud!

Stew-O: BETHANY LOCKS THE FIGURE FOUR IN! MIKU SAKAI IS SCREAMING! BETHANY IS TRYING TO WIN THIS MATCH AND SNAP MIKU’S LEG ALL AT THE SAME TIME! MIKU IS THRASHING ABOUT! SHE’S ACTUALLY GRABBED A HOLD OF HER RIGHT KNEE PAD TO TRY AND KEEP FROM TAPPING OUT! THE LAST THING MIKU WANTS TO DO IS GIVE UP, ESPECIALLY AFTER GETTING THIS CLOSE!!!

Persephone: LOOK AT BETHANY THOUGH! SHE SEES SHE HAS MIKU ON THE BRINK OF GIVING UP! SHE’S GOT THE FIGURE FOUR LOCKED IN AND SHE SNATCHES MIKU BY THE HAIR! THIS BITCH DOESN’T EVEN BOTHER WITH A GLOVE! SHE SHOVES HER FINGERS INTO MIKU’S NASTY MOUTH!!!! ‘SAY AHHHH’! BETHANY HAS THE MANDIBLE CLAW LOCKED IN!!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: WHAT THE…

Stew-O: MIKU SAKAI JUST STABBED DR. BETHANY BLUE RIGHT IN THE EYE WITH WHAT LOOKS TO BE A SMALL SCREWDRIVER!!!!

Persephone: :gladbron: THAT BITCH WASN’T TRYING TO HOLD ON TO KEEP FROM TAPPING, SHE WAS TRYING TO OPEN UP HER KNEE PAD AND PULL OUT A WEAPON! THAT IS FUCKING BRILLIANT!

Gavin Kirkland: BLOOD IS POURING DOWN BETHANY’S FACE AS SHE SCREAMS IN PAIN! THE DOCTOR IS HOLDING HER FACE AND ROLLING AROUND ON THE MAT! MIKU HAS TURNED THE TIDES IN THIS MATCH THANKS TO A HIDDEN WEAPON AND WE ALL HEARD THE REFEREE EARLIER! HE SAID THEY COULD DO WHATEVER THEY WANTED! MIKU CRAWLS OVER TO THE ROPES AND HAS TO USE THEM TO STAND UP! SHE CAN’T REALLY PUT ANY WEIGHT ON THAT LEG RIGHT NOW! BUT SHE’S CERTAINLY INCAPCITATED THE DOCTOR RIGHT NOW!

Stew-O: :lupe: BETHANY IS STILL SCREAMING IN PAIN AND MIKU PUTS EVEN MORE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO AS SHE ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! MIKU DROPS DOWN AND BEGINS TO LOOKING FOR SOMETHING AND OH MY… SHE JUST PULLED OUT ONE OF THOSE LEFT OVER BARBED WIRE LADDERS THAT VOLTAGE USED FOR THEIR ‘UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY’ SHOWCASE!!!!

Persephone: YEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

Gavin Kirkland: MIKU SLIDES THE LADDER INSIDE THE RING AND SHE CRAWLS BACK INSIDE! BETHANY IS OVER IN THE CORNER, CRADLING HER FACE, AND TRYING TO WIPE THE BLOOD OUT HER DAMAGED EYE! SHE DEFINITELY CAN’T FUCKING SEE OUT OF IT RIGHT NOW AND MIKU IS ABLE TO LIFT THE LADDER AND SHE SLIDES IT RIGHT INTO BETHANY’S STOMACH!

Persephone: MIKU TAKES THE LADDER AND POSITIONS IT BETWEEN THE ROPES, TRAPPING BETHANY IN THE CORNER!!!!!

Stew-O: JESUS CHRIST! SHE IS KICKING THE SHIT OUT OF THE LADDER, DRIVING IT INTO BETHANY’S FACE OVER AND OVER! MIKU IS USING WHATEVER SHE HAS LEFT IN THE TANK AND HER ONE GOOD LAND TO STAND, AS SHE SACRIFICES HER INJURED LEG TO TRY AND DESTROY BETHANY!

Gavin Kirkland: I… wow.

Persephone: If I had a dick, I’d sure be touching it right now.

Stew-O: .

Gavin Kirkland: MIKU WITH ONE LAST KICK AND SHE FALLS TO THE MAT! SHE’S DONE! SHE’S GOT NOTHING LEFT! SHE’S GOT TO GET BETHANY OUT OF THE CORNER AND GO FOR THE COVER! THERE IS NO OTHER OPTIONS FOR MIKU RIGHT NOW!

(Miku is down and breathing hard. All she can do is blink up at the bright stadium lights. Everything else has ceased to exist in this moment, and somehow she finds the wherewithal to move. She pushes herself up and sees a bloodied and battered Dr. Bethany Blue in the corner. That’s all the motivation she needs.)

Stew-O: MIKU SITS UP AND SHE GRABS BETHANY BY THE LEGS! SHE DRAGS HER OUT OF THE CORNER UNDER THE LADDER AND DRAPES HERSELF ON TOP OF HER! THIS IS IT! THIS IS IT! WE ARE ABOUT TO CROWN MIKU SAKAI THE 2022 EMPRESS OF ELITE!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(The crowd fucking loses it.)

Gavin Kirkland: IT TRULY DEFIES LOGIC! BETHANY JUST KICKED OUT AFTER GETTING ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED BY THAT LADDER! MIKU KNOWS THAT WAS HER ABSOLUTE BEST CHANCE TO GET THIS WIN BUT DR. BLUE KICKED OUT!!!!

Stew-O: I have no clue what it’s going to take to end this match. I truly don’t. Something has to give and these women have poured their entire souls into this tournament. They were the stand-outs from the very start, with all due respect to the other competitors. I know when the brackets were released this is the finals that I wanted, and it’s absolutely delivering.

(While the crowd is loud, both women are down for the count. The camera focuses on them both before zooming in on Bethany. She is barely able to get herself in a sitting position, but she knows that her opponent is down to one leg and has very little left to give at this point. It’s her turn to try and finish this match and through her blood soaked face, with one good eye, she eyes the ladder.)

Persephone: Oh Gawd. This match is gunna end with no one being crowned Empress. I can take that crown and sell that shit on Ebay.

Stew-O: :lupe: Bethany is staggering over to the ladder and she’s pulling it out of the ropes. I don’t know why she’s setting it up but she’s got something nefarious in m-

Gavin Kirkland: WHAT IS THAT STRAPPED TO THE LADDER???? I DIDN’T SEE IT UNTIL SHE UNFOLDED IT BUT IT’S RIGHT UNDER THE TOP!!!!

Persephone: IT’S A VOLTAGE LADDER, GAVIE-POO! IT’S A FUCKING EXPLOSIVE!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: NO! NO! NO! WE WRESTLE! WE WRESTLE! WE WRESTLE! I WILL NOT SIT HERE AND LET EITHER ONE OF THESE WOMEN BLOW UP!!!!

Persephone: BODY PARTS FOR EVERYONE!!!! :wavyvibe:

Stew-O: BETHANY HAS MADE HER WAY BACK TOWARDS MIKU AND SHE IS PULLING HER UP! MIKU CAN’T STAND SO SHE SLUMPS OVER, ALL HER WEIGHT IN BETHANY’S ARMS! BETHANY PRACTICALLY THROWS HER INTO THE BARBED WIRE LADDER AND THE DOCTOR STARTS TO CLIMB UP! SHE IS DRAGGING MIKU WITH HER AND BETHANY IS GOING ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP!

Gavin Kirkland: LOOK AT HOW THE BARBED WIRE IS TEARING BOTH OF THEM UP! THIS IS HORRIBLE! BETHANY PULLS MIKU CLOSER TO HER AND SHE NAILS HER WITH A RIGHT HAND! MIKU’S HEAD SNAPS TO THE SIDE, BUT BETHANY HOLDS ON, MAKING SURE MIKU DOESN’T FALL! SHE GOES FOR ANOTHER RIGHT HAND, BUT MIKU GETS HER ARM UP! SHE’S NOT ABLE TO FIGHT BACK BUT SHE’S ABLE TO STILL DEFEND HERSELF! BETHANY TRIES FOR ANOTHER PUNCH, BUT MIKU ISN’T HAVING IT! THE FIGHTING SPIRIT OF MIKU SAKAI IS FUCKING ADMIRABLE I S2G!!!!

Persephone: MIKU JUST CRACKED BETHANY RIGHT IN THE INJURED EYE WITH A HEADBUTT!!! FRESH BLOOD HAS STARTED TO POUR FROM THAT WOUND! MIKU LETS OUT A PRIMAL SCREAM AND SHE HEAD BUTTS BETHANY AGAIN! BETHANY NEARLY SLIPS, WHICH WOULD HAVE SENT BOTH WOMEN TUMBLING TO THE GROUND, BUT MIKU RIPS HER ARM FREE FROM BETHANY AND UNLOADS A FOREARM! OH MY GAWD THE BLOOD IS FLYING!

Stew-O: BUT BETHANY FIRES BACK WITH A FOREARM OF HER OWN! MIKU ANSWERS! NOW BETHANY! MIKU! BETHANY! MIKU! BETHANY! BOTH OF THEM! BOTH OF THEM! THEY ARE BEATING THE HELL OUT OF ONE ANOTHER ON TOP OF THE LADDER! THERE IS NO QUIT! THERE IS NO GIVE! BOTH WOMEN ARE DETERMINED TO END THE OTHER!

(All of a sudden, a little ticking noise can be heard.)

Gavin Kirkland: UHHHH…. LADIES… LADIES!!!!!!!

Persephone: LET. THEM. FIGHT!

Stew-O: I THINK WHATEVER THE FUCK IS STRAPPED TO THAT LADDER JUST IGNITED! BETHANY AND MIKU BOTH SEEM TO REALIZE IT AND THERE IS REAL FEAR IN BOTH OF THEIR EYES OR EYE IN BETHANY’S CASE! THEY ARE MORE DESPERATE NOW! THEIR PUNCHES ARE EVEN HARDER! BOTH OF THEM ARE BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF EACH OTHER! THEY HAVE TO GET DOWN! THIS MATCH CAN NOT END WITH A FUCKING EXPLOSION AND NO GODDAMN EMPRESS!

Gavin Kirkland: MIKU WITH A FINAL HEADBUTT AND BETHANY IS SLIPPING! SHE GRABS ON TO MIKU TO KEEP FROM FALLING, AND MIKU’S KNEE BUCKLES! THE LADDER IS TEETERING, AND BOTH WOMEN ARE IN DANGER OF FALLING!

Persephone: FUCK THAT! THAT SHIT IS ABOUT TO BLOW UP! THEY NEED TO FALL! On second thought… STAY UP THERE!!!!

Stew-O: :mjlol:

Gavin Kirkland: SOMEHOW, BOTH OF THEM REGAIN THEIR BALANCE! BETHANY IS STANDING A LITTLE ABOVE MIKU, WHO IS PUSHING HERSELF BACK TO HER FEET!

(It’s at that moment both Miku Sakai and Dr. Bethany Blue lock eyes, truly seeing one another for the first time. They know this is it. One of them is going to survive and the other one will have to live to fight another day. Both of them displayed nothing but heart and passion this week, telling their stories in their own words and sticking to their principles. They did exactly what they were supposed to do and turned this final match into something worth remembering. The want and need to be Empress of Elite and perhaps a future Universal Women’s Champion overwhelming each of them at that moment.)

Stew-O: MIKU MAKES A MOVE! SHE PUSHES HERSELF UP AND GOES FOR BETHANY’S NECK!!!

Persephone: ‘CODE BLUE’!!!! ‘CODE BLUE’!!! THE HEART PUNCH STOPS MIKU DEAD IN HER TRACKS AND BETHANY GRABS HER BY THE ARM TO KEEP HER FROM FALLING! MIKU KICKED OUT OF THAT MOVE EARLIER AND BETHANY’S NOT GOING TO RISK IT! SHE LIFTS MIKU UP AND LE-

💣 BOOM! 💣

Gavin Kirkland: BETHANY WITH ‘FLATLINE’ OFF THE LADDER RIGHT AS IT EXPLODES!!!!! THE SIT DOWN PILEDRIVER HAS SURELY ENDED THIS MATCH AS WOODEN SPLINTERS AND BROKEN PIECES OF BARBED WIRE RAIN DOWN ON TOP OF BETHANY!

Stew-O: THE REFEREE, WHO DOVE TO THE MAT AS THE LADDER EXPLODED, SEES THAT BETHANY HAS FALLEN OVER MIKU AND HAS HER PINNED!!!!!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS YOU WINNER AND 2022 EMPRESS OF ELITE TOURNAMENT WINNER… DR. BETHANY BLUE!!!!

Crowd: THE! M! D!

(‘Somebody Get Me A Doctor’ by Van Halen hits to the cheers and screams of the crowd. The camera zooms around the stadium, catching fans celebrating one of the greatest endings to any tournament ever, and the crestfallen faces of the simps in the crowd.)

Stew-O: I don’t even know what to say. I knew we would get a match for the ages, but I never could have expected anything like that.

Gavin Kirkland: I am devastated. We wrestle. We don’t leap off exploding ladders after stabbing people and doing all this other shit to them.

Persephone: You literally called a Hardcore Championship match for your own brand earlier. It’s perfectly fine.

Stew-O: I’m not sure if our two competitors are fine though. Medical officials have hit the ring, checking on both our winner and our runner-up. Both women absolutely left nothing at all on the table, and did everything they could to win this match. Two inspiring and equally gusty performances from two women who deserve to be spoken about in the same breath as Kassidy Heart. As Ms. Extreme. As Andrea Valentine. Hell, as any other top wrestler in this company, male or female. That is one of the all-time great performances for a career-changing opportunity that I have ever seen during my time here in Elite Answers Wrestling and it’s a damn shame only one of them could win.

(The medical officials tending to Bethany have gotten her to her feet. The referee has gotten out of the ring and has grabbed the EOE crown, but instead of having him crown her, a tired and bloody Dr. Bethany Blue holds out her hands. She wants to hold the crown and look at it with her own good eye, and the second the referee gives it to her, Bethany collapses to her knees. Emotion overwhelms her and she doesn’t care who sees it right now. For three years she has been working towards a chance to become a world champion. Through triumphs and setbacks, the doctor has been through it all. She clutches the crown to her chest as fireworks go off and confetti begins to rain down from the sky.)

Gavin Kirkland: What a night.

Persephone: What a way to end it.

Stew-O: For Gavin, Persephone, and myself… goodnight.

(The final shot of the night is Bethany somehow getting back to her feet on her own. She raises her hands in the air, soaking in the reaction of the crowd, and just living in the moment. The tears that fall from her good eye wash away some of the blood that stains her face. As the scene fades to black, the good doctor crowns herself the 2022 Empress of Elite.)

(“Party Goin’ Dumb” by Rico Nasty continues to play throughout the speakers of the Pheonix Suns Arena, the crowd turning all the way up as Astraea Jordan vibes along with her music and the fans until her music cuts off.)

Astraea Jordan: Whew. So, let’s get right into it, ‘cause unlike some of y’all, I don’t have much time to waste at all. I’m fired up right now. Pain for Pride is right around the corner, and I’m not trying to waste ANY of my momentum heading into THEE biggest event of the whole damn year, for what I’m sure is going to be one of the shining moments of my own career as well. I’m getting straight to the point: I feel some type of way about what happened last week on Dynasty. A victory against Halsey is all well and good, sure, I’ll take it–but I’m a LOT more focused on what happened AFTER my match…

(The Chiraq Savage lowers her mic momentarily, slowly nodding her head as she stares out into the crowd who all boo immediately at Astraea’s hinting at Sheridan’s assault.)

Astraea Jordan: It is what it is. Sheridan caught me lacking, and decided that she wanted to call me out at Pain for Pride to a one-on-one match, and did so in a way that she thought might have thrown me off my game. But one thing I need y’all to understand is that I’m no rookie to this business, and it’s gonna take much more to scare me. Truth be told, I could always sort of sense that a match between myself and Sheridan was brewing–it was going to happen eventually, so why not Pain for Pride? I get it. This match between us was always inevitable, and was only left to the matter of one of us issuing the challenge, and the other accepting it. To keep it one hunnid…she shouldn’t even neeeeed a formal acceptance from me. My answer should be loud and clear, it’s obvious, I’m walking into Pain for Pride and I’m beating Sheridan’s ass, point blank, periodt. Don’t act like you don’t already know!

(Astraea has the audience in the palm of her hands. They cheer her on enthusiastically as she energetically paces around the ring, staring right into the hard camera to sell her point.)

Astraea Jordan: Deep down, we all know the truth about the situation: Sheridan been jealous of me, ever since 2017, just check the receipts. You all know the story. Once I arrived on the scene, there was endless hype surrounding my name, everybody saw my potential and I delivered, each and every time. Meanwhile, while I was flourishing and making a name for myself, Sheridan was too busy floundering, bouncing in and out of the company. She wanted to be the star, but instead that turned out to be me, and her ass was just the damn entourage, an expendable accessory to EAW’s women’s division. I was busy earning myself a World Championship opportunity at King of Elite in 2018, and instead of Sheridan doing a damn fucking thing with herself, she got her ass shipped out of EAW due to some conveniently timed attack and blindsighted assault never to be seen again for four whole years. Funny how that’s the tactic she wants to pull with me when it’s that same behavior that got her ass thrown outta here, but it is what it is. I always did think it was a shame she and I never crossed paths back then, otherwise, we likely wouldn’t be here right now. I’d have mopped the floor with that bitch back then, just like I’m finna do at Pain for Pride, and we wouldn’t have to waste another second of our time pretending to give a shit about German Deficiency or like she still has any pull in today’s day and age. She thought she had it, though, thought she was gonna make a splash making her #EAW15 return, only to get overshadowed by the ONE return that motherfuckers REALLY give a shit about: mine. It’s like the last five years never happened. You was living in my shadow then, and you living in my shadow now. It was foolish of me to think that your attitude might’ve improved over the years, but I gave you the benefit of the doubt and I can only blame myself for not knowing better than to trust that you wouldn’t pull some slick shit.

Astraea Jordan: So how ‘bout it, Sheridan? Apart from your preference towards snake-like behavior, what’s stopping you from coming out here and meeting me, face to face, woman to woman, one last time before Pain for Pride week starts up in full swing?

(Astraea lowers the mic and turns her attention towards the stage, gesturing for Sheridan to come on out and join her.)

(“Amerikka” by Rammstein suddenly starts up, and the audience in attendance responds with an overwhelming chorus of boos to welcome The Flamestress out onto the stage. Soon enough, Sheridan Muller saunters out onto the stage, a wide, confident and condescending smile draped across her face. She twirls a microphone in her hand as she meticulously positions herself at a comfortable position atop the stage, waiting for her music to die down. Inside of the ring, Astraea Jordan leans over the ropes so she may look Sheridan in the eye–Astraea also wears a smirk of her own, no doubt amused to find that Sheridan is suddenly more interested in keeping her distance.)

Sheridan Müller: Now, out of all the outrageous things you had the confidence to fabricate on live television, Astraea, there’s one thing that I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around: what the fuck makes you believe that I have EVER been jealous of YOU? Be honest with yourself, for just a moment, if your brain can handle it, and admit that there is zero chance in hell that I was ever, in any way shape or form, overshadowed by you. And as for your confusion surrounding my decision to put an end to our alignment? Do you not understand what the word “temporary” implies? If you don’t, then you have a right to feel misled, so by all means. But considering when I came to you about our short-term alliance, that I said all of these words, I emphasized that our TEMPORARY alliance was purely out of convenience, and with the intention to the two of us to get into that match all in one piece, I just was under the impression that you and I were on the same page. Our alliance was a stopgap, duct tape plugging a hole until a better solution was found. If you feel hoodwinked and betrayed then take the rose-tinted glasses off and acknowledge the reality of the situation.

Sheridan Müller: I also refuse to stand for this revisionist’s history bullshit that you’re trying to pull. The story behind my leave in EAW is very well documented, go back and check the “receipts” for yourself. I’ve never ran away from or denied the fact that I left this company a certain way, but just because it happened doesn’t mean that any and everyone can get away with throwing away all that I’ve accomplished in this company. Unlike you, I have never based my worth on popularity and recognition and being the golden child, the flashiest, trendsetting flavor of the month, because what happens in the ring shows it in itself. I am Sheridan fucking Müller, German Efficiency, and if anything that you said was true, I wouldn’t have been worth the time and effort upon my return, I would have never stepped into that ladder match with you to begin with–but here I am, and who can say they’ve done as much as me has in such a short time? You only wish you could. Which is why as much as you want to believe that you’re spitting #facts right now, it’s not even close. Don’t let these feeble-minded folks who can barely even think for themselves convenience you that you’re right.

(The fans don’t appreciate the dig Sheridan takes at them. They boo her, but that doesn’t slow her down–if anything, she feeds off of the negative energy they throw at her.)

Sheridan Müller: But go ahead, Astraea, keep on twisting reality enough to wring out any semblance of a practical fucking argument. You can continue to compare our respective positions and accomplishments from a very specific timeframe that only a small fraction of individuals in this locker room or this audience care about or even remember. If you really want to take it there, Astraea, I had that division in a chokehold before you were ever even signed. I was WINNING world championships and awards well before the chairman developed a soft spot for you. If that’s really all you have in your arsenal, then I would highly recommend that you try something else if you want to shake me. You might have cost me a match or two, but that’s honestly no more than a blip on that radar compared to everything else that I’ve demonstrated since my return. I have eviscerated and annihilated you, and made sure that every time the two of us met inside of that ring, I made a statement at YOUR expense. And that’s what I will continue to do. Once Pain For Pride rolls around, it’s going to be no different. You do not stand a fucking chance. It’s going to end the same way that it always does–with German Efficiency on top.

Astraea Jordan: Girl, bye. You just love to be wrong all the time, don’t you? Now, I know better than to deny that maybe in the recent past, you’ve gotten the upper hand on me a few times, most recently just this past week. But what you need to understand is that everytime you’ve come for me, everytime you thought you won after laying me out, I always managed to get back up and push on, regardless of what you throw at me. The first time it happened, I came back the following week and stood my ground. You was feeling bold enough to attack me from BEHIND again, and not only did I win my match that took place immediately after, but I turned the tables on your ass and made sure to cost you a match of your own as well. You attacked me just last week, and look where I’m at: out here, in your face, calling you out, and geared up to take you on and put an end to this petty grudge you been holding against me once and for all. Try me, boo. It’s gonna take a LOT more from you to keep me down, and that’s something I’ve made perfectly clear since my return to professional wrestling to everyone, not even just you.

Sheridan Müller: You can get back up as many times as you want, Astraea, but that won’t change that no matter how many times I DO lay you out, you’ve yet to defend yourself effectively enough, and can never seem to prepare for the next time I decide it’s time to pull one over on you. And beyond your limitations and setbacks, there is one good reason for that. I don’t preach good wrestling, great training and a superior lifestyle for a catchphrase. I validate these words, this mantra when I step into the ring. And when I step into that ring with you, I’m going to beat the shit out of you, Astraea. And it’s a shame that you still don’t see it coming.

Astraea Jordan: You wanna prove it? C’mon, then. You standing all the way over there like you scared, instead of stepping into the ring with me, right now. Show me what you got, Sherbear.

(Astraea drops her mic with a pop, and the fans go berserk. She sits on the middle rope and holds the ring ropes open, a wide open invitation for Sheridan Müller to join her. Sheridan purses her lips while the fans continue to cheer.)

Stew-O: From the looks of it, Sheridan wants nothing to do with Astraea at the moment, and would much rather bide her time and save her energy for Pain for Pride.

Jake Mercer: Well, I guess it never hurts to play it safe–oh, but hold on! Sheridan looks a bit hesitant still but–YES! She’s heading down the ramp! She’s giving Astraea Jordan exactly what she asked for, and it looks like we’re about to get a full on brawl!

Flannery McCoy: Out of everything that Sheridan Müller is as an Elitist, if there’s anything she ISN’T, it’s a coward! She’s never backed down from a challenge before and I doubt she’s going to start any time soon!

Stew-O: SHERIDAN HAS BROKE INTO A SPRINT, AND IS NOW CHARGING STRAIGHT AT THE RING! SHE SLIDES BENEATH THE ROPES–

Jake Mercer: ONLY TO BE MET BY STOMP AFTER STOMP AFTER STOMP RIGHT INTO THE NECK AND BACK OF ASTRAEA JORDAN, WHO HAD BEEN WAITING PATIENTLY FOR SHERIDAN TO REACH THE RING–

Flannery McCoy: But Sheridan is taking that assault like a champ–Astraea realizes her boots have little effect as Sheridan, despite the offense from Astraea, has gotten to her knees–Astraea looking to land a forearm straight to the face–

Jake Mercer: BUT SHERIDAN COUNTERS WITH AN UPPERCUT, RIGHT TO THE LIP, AND THAT THROWS ASTRAEA OFF A BIT!

Stew-O: Astraea stumbles backwards a tad, and that’s enough for Sheridan to get up to her feet! Sheridan with a right hand to Astraea! And another! And ANOTHER! MAYBE ONE MORE?!

Flannery McCoy: NO! ASTRAEA COUNTERS BACK WITH A RIGHT HAND OF HER OWN, and that gives her an opening to–SHE’S GRABBED SHERIDAN BY THE HAIR! BUT SHERIDAN STILL HAS A FREE ARM, AND GRABS ASTRAEA BY THE BRAID! NEITHER WOMEN WILL LET GO, AS THEY CONTINUE TO LAND PUNCHES AND JABS ANYWHERE THEY CAN REACH!

Jake Mercer: A PUNCH TO SHERIDAN’S MIDSECTION! AN ELOW RIGHT INTO ASTRAEA’S EAR!! The fans are eating this up, but I don’t know if these women care at all to wait until Pain for Pride to go at it with one another!

Stew-O: Yes, clearly, they have other plans in mind! Hell, I doubt they’ll be make it to Pain for Pride in one piece at this rate! This is INSANITY!

Flannery McCoy: ASTRAEA AND SHERIDAN ARE FIGHTING ALL AROUND THE RING–they bounce against the ropes, both women losing their footing, and now they’re on the ground, PUMMELLING into one another!

Jake Mercer: WE NEED SOME HELP OUT HERE! SOMEBODY HAS TO BREAK THIS UP!

Stew-O: And right on cue, a swarm of EAW officials have FINALLY rushed out to ringside here to break this up–good LORD those two really have it out for one another!

(As Stew-O mentioned, various officials and referees have now arrived at ringside, and are doing their best to pull Astraea and Sheridan to opposite sides–one group of officials have pulled Sheridan out of the ring and are holding her against the barricade, while another has cornered a heated Astraea into a turnbuckle corner.)

Jake Mercer: It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen a feud as personal as this one reach these heights here between our ladies on Dynasty–hell, I don’t even know if I can call them THAT anymore, both these women are downright SAVAGES!

Flannery McCoy: You can’t expect anything else, Jake! Pain for Pride SZN is in FULL effect, and neither one of these women are willing to suffer a loss at their first Pain for Pride appearances in YEARS!

Stew-O: It’s bound to get ugly, ladies and gentlemen. And I personally can’t wait to see what comes of it! We’ll be right back with more Friday Night Dynasty!

[SCREENBAR: KING OF ELITE 2022 – ANDRE WALKER VS. CHRIS ELITE VS. ADAM LUCAS – KING OF ELITE FINALS]

(Inside the ring stands Bella Braxton, a smile on her face as she looks out the crowd with her microphone raised!)

Bella Braxton: The following triple threat match is scheduled for one fall!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bella Braxton: And this is the finals of the King of Elite Tournament!

(The crowd cheers at the announcement before they absolutely explode when ‘You Know My Name’ by Chris Cornell begins to play, and Adam Lucas makes his way out hyping himself and the crowd as he gets to the stage!)

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, Saturday Night Showdown’s finalist for the tournament, making his way to the ring from New York… weighing 231 pounds… “NEXT LEVEL” AAAADDDDDAAAAAAAAMMMMM LUUUUUUUCCCCCCAAAAAAASSSSSSS!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: SHOWDOWN’S REPRESENTATIVE AND THE NEXT WINNER OF THE KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT, GOATDAM LUCAS HAS ARRIVED!!! One of the best and brightest to come up in EAW in the last year, Adam has asserted himself a place in the EAW Universe as someone who could accomplish greater things than he already has, and he’s going to absolutely bring that crown back to Showdown!

Persephone: I know he had to go through a bunch of other people to get here for this opportunity, but I think it’s honestly safe to say that yuo wouldn’t be nearly as hyped for this guy if you knew it was Rex he was up against.

Gavin Kirkland: Well, he’s not, and Rex isn’t here – and Rex will never love you, either! So shut up!

Persephone: So rude for no fucking reason.

Stew-O: But yes, Adam Lucas did have to overcome a cast of opponents to end up in this position and ultimately did so in defeating a former World Champion in Charlie Marr! Adam’s found himself rubbing shoulders with plenty of main event talent and World Champions, with last season seeing singled out by Ronn Banks as someone with one bright future in EAW! Tonight could be the night that Adam truly solidifies that as a fact, and I know he’ll fight for that!

(Adam enters the ring and marches around, ready to go! Just then ‘Leaving Caladan’ by Hans Zimmer begins to play and Andre Walker makes his way out with Albert Hitchman trailing him with the Interwire Championship in hand. Albert shows off the Championship to the crowd while Andre looks around the arena before starting down the ramp.)

Bella Braxton: Next, the finalist of the Friday Night Dynasty bracket, making his way to the ring from the Isle of Samoa… weighing 245 pounds… AAAANNNNNNDDDDRRRRREEEEEE WAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLKKKKKKKKKKEEEEEERRRRR!!!!

Stew-O: Much like Adam, Andre has been viewed as someone that can achieve even more than that he has and go even higher, which is honestly scary to think about when he’s set a new record for the New Breed Championship before he decided to vacate it, and has proceeded to be a standout talent this season on Friday Night Dynasty! After a loss to Ronn Banks just before the new year, Andre regrouped quickly and was able to land himself a spot in this match!

Gavin Kirkland: I can honestly say that Andre’s certainly put himself up there as one of the best going today, defeating plenty of stars along the way to have the reputation that he does. And- and now here’s something! Speaking of stars in EAW!

Persephone: Who fuck is this ugly motherfucker?

(Albert Hitchman is seen having stopped in his tracks upon rounding the corner of the ring ahead of Andre, and the two of them stand where they’re at as they’re engaged in a staredown with none other than…… EAW Hall of Famer, Scott Diamond!)

Stew-O: :lupe: I’m sure this certainly has to be awkward for Albert Hitchman, who at one point was Scott Diamond’s own manager.

Gavin Kirkland: So, what? You’re saying Hitchman has been passed around more than one of Justin Windgate’s blunts?

Stew-O: It’s just interesting that he’s here in the front row for this match. With this staredown going on between him and Andre, I can only imagine what’s running through everyone’s minds right now!

Persephone: Hopefully he jumps the barricade or some shit during this to interrupt it so we don’t have to sit through the whole thing.

(Andre enters the ring while Albert continues around the ring. Walker stands across from Adam and they anticipate the final entrance, which comes when ‘44 Bulldog’ by Pop Smoke takes over and Chris Elite makes his way out!)

Bella Braxton: And finally, the finalist of the Sunday Night Voltage bracket, making his way to the ring from Brooklyn, New York… weighing 210 pounds….. “GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS” CHRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSS ELIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Stew-O: Chris joins the match as an EAW Hall of Famer and one of the two reigning Champions that we have coming into the match, as one-half of the reigning Unified Tag Team Champions! Chris’s journey here hasn’t just started through this tournament, but through all the work that he’s put in to come into a position like this once again where the effort that he’s put in to make it this far can’t be denied!

Gavin Kirkland: Until he’s denied by Adam :drakelike:!! But it’s true that Chris had his moments of struggling but it’s also like he said, who hasn’t been through their own ups and downs? Now, tonight he finds himself to put the ELITE in King of Elite and win this tournament like he’s been determined to!

Persephone: I wish Rex was representing Voltage like he should be right now :mjcry:

Stew-O: I can tell it’s gonna be great being the only sane person on commentary tonight! 😀

(Chris enters the ring and his Championship is passed off to ringside. With all three competitors in the ring, the official calls for the bell!)

(DING! DING! DING)

Stew-O: AND HERE WE GO! ANDRE LEAPS RIGHT INTO A KAISER’S TOUCH TO CHRIS ELITE!!!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT CHRIS ROLLS TO THE MAT AND OUT THE WAY! CHRIS IS BACK UP AND ANDRE TURNS AROUND INTO A BOX OFFICE SMASH!

Stew-O: NO! ANDRE DUCKS DOWN AND CHRIS STAGGERS FORWARD INTO A HIP TOSS FROM ADAM LUCAS- WAIT! Chris turns mid-air to land on his feet and he stumbles into the ropes, Adam charging at him only to get a knee to the stomach-

Gavin Kirkland: ANDRE BARRELS TOWARD THE TWO OF THEM AND TAKES THEM OVER THE TOP ROPE IN A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!!! THEY ALL GO TOPPLING TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR IN A MASSIVE THUD!

Persephone: Actually, Chris leaned back out of the way of taking the hit and held onto the top rope before going over it. But I kinda wish he hadn’t since it looked like Andre was hellbent on decapitating both of them. Andre and Adam unfortunately didn’t break their necks on the fall since they’re getting back up to their feet, and Chris backs away across the apron all the way to the post-

Stew-O: GETTING DISTANCE FOR A SPRINT ACROSS THE APRON BEFORE LAUNCHING HIMSELF AT ADAM AND ANDRE TO GO TAKING THEM DOWN WITH A DIVING CROSSBODY!!

Gavin Kirkland: Booooooooooo!!! I need Adam to get the hell up; Showdown’s reputation is at stake right now and it’s not a good look to have him down and out! I mean, how would it look to have the GOAT commentator on the same show not housing the King of Elite winner?!

Stew-O: You had Kassidy Heart last year :mjpls:

Gavin Kirkland: Yeah, but it was hardly her in-ring talents I was paying attention to :mjlit:!!!

Persephone: And I really couldn’t give less of a fuck. Chris drags Adam off the ground and runs him into the barricade, repeatedly driving Adam’s back against it before grabbing Adam’s legs and dumping him over the side of it. But that dumb fuck should’ve been paying attention to what was going on behind him, because Andre just got up to his feet and now he grabs a hold of Chris to slam his head off the apron and holds his face down against it as he drags him down the rest of the way to the ring post and bashes his face into it.

Stew-O: But the Interwire Champion doesn’t stop at one, he slams Elite’s face against the ring post again and again and again! Chris gets somewhat of a taste of his own medicine before he’s ruthlessly thrown down against the ground and Andre starts stomping the former World Champion! Chris tries to cover up but Andre is just too laser-focused to find some restraint! The Hall of Famer takes a nasty kick to the ribs that turns him over, AND ANDRE BIEL THROWS HIM INTO THE BARRICADE AFTER DRAGGING HIM UP TO HIS FEET!!!

Gavin Kirkland: AND LEAPING OFF THE BARRICADE JUST OVER CHRIS COMES ADAM LUCAS, TAKING DOWN ANDRE WALKER WITH A LEAPING CLOTHESLINE!! HA! THAT’S RIGHT! I NEVER DOUBTED HIM FOR A SECOND!! The former Hardcore Champion gets Andre up and rolls him into the ring before taking off into the ropes and Adam comes back with a dropkick to Andre just as he was getting back up!

Stew-O: Andre finds the ropes trying to get up but Adam grabs him from behind, ripping him away from the ropes and dropping him with a german suplex! But Adam doesn’t immediately let go, keeping hold of Walker and turning them both over to get onto their feet and he takes Andre to the mat with a second german suplex! Adam’s still got that waistlock applied and he gets them up to a vertical base, LAUNCHING ANDRE TO THE MAT FOR A THIRD TIME AND ANDRE’S DOWN!

Persephone: 🥱 Rex would’ve done it better! But now that weirdo doctor’s boyfriend or whatever gets up to his feet and grabs a hold of Andre’s hair to bring him over to the corner where he carelessly lets him land just to start stomping down on him before driving his knee against Andre’s face. It’s really fucking unfortunate there’s no disqualification here because he’s for sure held that longer than a five count :noah:!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Adam backs off to start getting Andre up to his feet in the corner still and unleashes a wicked chop across the chest and then a kick to the gut, followed by a forearm to the face in quick succession! A pattern he ends up repeating to beat down Andre in the corner- Andre catches the foot on one of the oncoming kicks and Adam’s left hopping on one leg! Adam is forced to hop backward out the corner as Andre’s yet to drop the other leg, BUT NOW HE THROWS ADAM’S LEG AWAY TO THE SIDE AND CAUSES ADAM TO SPIN-

Stew-O: ADAM COMES BACK AROUND WITH A DISCUS LARIAT TO TAKE ANDRE DOWN TO THE MAT! ANDRE HURRIES BACK UP TO HIS FEET BUT GETS STRUCK DOWN WITH A DROPKICK! HE ROLLS OVER AND ADAM CHARGES FOR A CLOTHESLINE BUT ANDRE DUCKS AND TAKES OFF ACROSS THE RING INTO THE ROPES, AND COMES OFF OF THEM WITH A HUGE SURGE OF MOMENTUM GOING RIGHT FOR ADAM!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT ANDRE GETS SWEPT UP OFF HIS FEET AND ADAM PLANTS HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH A SPINEBUSTER!!! THE BACK OF ANDRE’S HEAD HITS THE MAT AND ADAM GRABS THE LEGS TO PUSH FORWARD INTO A COVER!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Persephone: This bald bitch really had to get in the ring and break up the pin? 🙄

Stew-O: Chris Elite did in fact feel the need to break up the pin just now; he’s clearly not taking any chances when it comes to making his King of Elite dreams a reality!

Gavin Kirkland: And now he’s got a hold of Adam’s hair as he punches Adam over the top of the head, the Unified Tag Team Champion holding nothing back as he batters the rising star in Adam Lucas with his fist! Chris kicks Adam’s leg out from under him to put Adam on a knee as he spots Andre on the rise and coming at him, Chris catching him with a side kick to the stomach before hitting him with an uppercut and then having to launch a strike at Adam as he was getting back up! Adam fires back though just before Chris could catch him again and Chris goes to swing BUT ANDRE LIFTS CHRIS ELITE UP IN THE AIR FROM BEHIND- CHRIS GETS HIS LEGS AROUND ADAM’S NECK AND HE TWISTS TO TAKE THEM BOTH DOWN IN A HEADLOCK-HEADSCISSORS COMBINATION!!

Stew-O: CHRIS IS UP ON HIS FEET AND HE TAKES OFF INTO THE ROPES, COMING BACK TO CATCH BOTH ADAM AND ANDRE WITH A DOUBLE BLOCKBUSTER THAT DRIVES THE BACK OF THEIR HEADS INTO THE CANVAS!! AND NOW HE HOPS UP TO RUN TO THE ROPES, SPRINGING OFF THE MIDDLE CABLE AND HE COMES DOWN WITH A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT KNEE DROP INTO ADAM’S RIBS! CHRIS USES THE MOMENTUM TO POP UP OFF HIM AND INTO A STANDING MOONSAULT ONTO ANDRE WALKER!!

Persephone: Chris grabs Adam and takes him overhead into a snap suplex, rolling right over into a second before turning and shoving him right into the corner to land a step-up knee strike right under the chin. Chris comes down getting Adam’s legs over his shoulders and looks to lift him out the corner, but Adam holds onto the top rope to keep from getting pulled away and manages to kick Chris in the face! He deserves it for not even thinking to offer his spot to Rex to get him to come back!

Stew-O: Chris is sent stumbling away and gets struck down from behind by Andre, who surges forward hits a corner clothesline on Adam! Andre being sure to take a few seconds every now and then to check his surroundings for Chris as he hits on Adam, AND HE WAS RIGHT TO DO SO AS HE HAS TO LAUNCH CHRIS OUT OVER THE TOP ROPE BUT HE LANDS ON THE APRON! Andre makes the mistake of trying to swing at Chris as Adam kicks Andre away and Chris tries to swing at Adam, ONLY FOR ADAM TO DUCK DOWN OUT OF THE WAY OF AN ONCOMING PUNCH AND HE SHOULDER THRUSTS CHRIS OFF THE APRON!

Gavin Kirkland: NOT SO FAST! Chris jumps backward off the apron before he can be hit and grabs Adam’s legs from outside the ring and trips him up to pull out the ring! Adam takes an unceremonious fall to the floor while Chris holds onto both legs AND THEN SWINGS HIM AROUND INTO THE SIDE OF THE STEEL STEPS AT THE CORNER OF THE RING! ADAM’S HEAD SMACKS THE STEPS! Adam is like dead weight in the Champion’s grasp right now and Chris manages to maneuver him under the apron’s skirt while he’s still got the legs- ANDRE WALKER HITS A BASEBALL SLIDE TO CHRIS AND CHRIS FALLS BACKWARD CAUSING HIM TO GO CATAPULTING ADAM FACE FIRST INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE RING APRON!!

Persephone: Andre rolls Chris into the ring but keeps his head out on the apron before climbing up himself AND THAT DUMB FUCK MISSES SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A LEG DROP :mjlol:!!!! THE PAINED LOOK ON ANDRE’S FACE IS PRICELESS RIGHT NOW! DUMB BITCH! And now Chris gets to his feet in the ring after rolling out the way and he grabs Andre by the hair that he wishes he had, pulling him backward over the middle rope to hit a neckbreaker that folds Andre up when he gets dropped back into the ring!

Stew-O: The former EAW World Champion pulls Andre away from the ropes and hooks the leg to make the cover!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Persephone: I obviously got TOO excited seeing Chris Elite do something right for once because his dumbass couldn’t even win the match right now and end this shit seeing as how Andre just kicked out! I really fucking hate it here and I don’t know why I was chosen to call this shit out of all the other commentators. 🙄

Stew-O: Chris targets the neck on the way to getting Andre up on his feet, dropping his elbow repeatedly against it before he goes and whips the Interwire Champion across the ring, Andre coming off the ropes and getting a bicycle kick to the gut! Chris runs to the adjacent ropes and comes back grabbing a hold of Andre for a swinging neckbreaker, taking Andre to the mat with a quickness! He turns over to grab him again-

Gavin Kirkland: BUT HE GETS CRACKED OVER THE BACK WITH A KENDO STICK BY ADAM LUCAS!!! ADAM COMES BACK WITH A KENDO STICK AFTER BEING TAKEN OUT AND HE’S GETTING PAYBACK OVER CHRIS FOR SENDING HIM INTO THE STEPS, UNLEASHING A WHOLE HELL OF A LOT OF STRIKES TO THE BACK!!

Stew-O: CHRIS TRIES TO ROLL AWAY BUT ADAM REMAINS IN PURSUIT, REFUSING TO STOP EVEN AS IT’S OBVIOUS THAT CHRIS NEEDS A REPRIEVE FROM ALL THESE SHOTS!! CHRIS SHOUTS AS HE GETS TO THE ROPES, HAVING BEEN KICKED IN THE RIBS AND ALL HE CAN DO IS COVER UP ON THE MAT AS ADAM REFUSES TO LET HIM GET OUT OF THE RING!!

Persephone: The big Samoan guy is getting back up and he’s about to ruin what could lead to the end of this match right now as he goes to grab the kendo stick from Adam who had it raised back of his head- BUT ADAM HOLDS ON AND YANKS ON THE KENDO STICK TO PULL ANDRE FORWARD INTO A KICK TO THE STOMACH! ANDRE’S HOLD ON THE KENDO STICK IS BROKEN AND ADAM TAKES A SWING WITH IT RIGHT TO ANDRE’S TORSO! ANDRE TURNS AWAY FROM THE HIT BUT ADAM JUST HITS HIM REPEATEDLY OVER THE BACK!

Gavin Kirkland: Andre falls to his knees and Adam launches a kick from the side to knock Andre onto his back before hitting a stomp to the sternum and then coming down with an elbow drop to the chest! Walker goes rolling away and Adam gets to his feet prepared to follow after him, BUT CHRIS ELITE ROLLS UP ADAMN LUCAS FROM BEHIND!! CHRIS IS ABOUT TO STEAL THE WIN HERE AT KING OF ELITE!!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Stew-O: NO! ADAM MANAGES TO KICK CHRIS FORWARD AND CHRIS COMES OFF THE ROPES INTO A SPINNING FOREARM SMASH! Chris stumbles back on his feet with his hands over his nose after that nasty hit and Adam is quick to hook him up for an exploder suplex that slams him to the mat on his back that has been tattered by those kendo stick hits!

(The camera cuts momentarily to Albert Hitchman getting a chair from under the ring and sliding it into the ring for Andre as Andre’s down recovering at the ropes next to him.)

Persephone: Adam sends Chris over the middle rope and reaches over the top to pull Chris up with his arms getting pulled back over the top rope before he starts clubbing his chest, BUT HERE COMES ANDRE BACK UP ON HIS FEET WITH THE CHAIR AND HE SLAMS IT INTO ADAM’S BACK!! ADAM FALLS OVER TO THE MAT, BUT CHRIS IS STILL CAUGHT UP IN THE ROPES, AND ANDRE REELS BACK BEFORE SLAMMING IT AGAINST CHRIS’S BACK! CHRIS SHOUTS AS HE GETS ANOTHER HIT, UNABLE TO MOVE AS ANDRE TAKES A THIRD SWING, AND NOW A FOURTH TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!

Stew-O: The force of that chair strike to the head forces Chris to slump forward as he’s surely been knocked unconscious and Andre kicks his legs out from under him to have him falling back into the ring, before he marches toward Adam just as he’s moved onto all fours unaware that Andre’s even coming! Andre stands over him and goes driving the top of the chair down into the middle of Adam’s back to put him back down on the mat! Adam makes the attempt to try to trudge away but Andre comes down with another hit before dropping down and turning him over to make the cover!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: TTT-

Gavin Kirkland: A valiant kickout by Showdown’s next King of Elite :drakelike:!!!

Persephone: He just couldn’t stay down? I think we’ve all seen enough.

Stew-O: It’s far too early for this one to be over and all three of these men surely have so much more to give!

Persephone: Great, thanks for letting me know. 🙄 Andre is hopefully looking to end this as he gets up to his feet and grabs the chair he had just used on Chris and Adam, and sets it up in the middle of the ring instead of just cracking Adam’s fucking head open like he should’ve with it to scramble his brains on the mat.

Stew-O: You’re so violent :lupe:

Gavin Kirkland: I can get into it :mjlit:!!!

Persephone: Don’t fucking talk to me.

Gavin Kirkland: She totally wants me :mjlit:!

Persephone: I want you dead is more like it.

Stew-O: Andre blasts Adam over the head with punches as he works on bringing Adam to stand, the Saturday Night Showdown star taking those hits with late attempts to block them before he’s lifted into the air into a suplex position near the chair!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT ADAM GETS DROPPED BACK DOWN WHEN ANDRE’S STRUCK WITH A KENDO STICK ACROSS THE STOMACH! ANDRE LOSES HIS GRASP AND CHRIS DROPS THE KENDO STICK STARTS UNLOADING ON ANDRE WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES!! Chris backs him to the ropes before he’s pushed away, Andre charging-

Stew-O: ANDRE FALLS FACE FIRST INTO THE CHAIR AS CHRIS HITS A DROP TOE HOLD!! THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION’S FACE BANGS OFF THE SEAT OF THE CHAIR AND CHRIS GRABS HIM BY THE HAIR BEFORE HE CAN GO ANYWHERE, STARTING TO SLAM HIS FACE REPEATEDLY INTO THAT METAL SEAT BEFORE FINALLY LETTING HIM GO WITH AFTER ONE FINAL SLAM!!

Persephone: He can’t show that same kind of urgency to try to end this shit? I know just like he surely has to know that that’s not going to put Andre’s boring ass away so that I can get the fuck out of here and go home. 🙄

Gavin Kirkland: Chris stomps on Andre while he’s got him down and that’s the wise thing to do to keep Andre from getting more involved in this, BUT WHAT ISN’T WISE IS TURNING HIS BACK ON ADAM LUCAS WHO LIFTS CHRIS FROM BEHIND AND DROPS HIM BACKWARD INTO THE CHAIR A WITH A BACK SUPLEX!! THE CHAIR COLLAPSES UNDER THE WEIGHT OF CHRIS ELITE COMING CRASHING DOWN ON IT AND HE SURELY HAS TO REGRET TAKING HIS EYES OFF OF ADAM LUCAS!

Persephone: I regret letting myself get talked into this knowing there’s no end in sight yet :mjcry:

Stew-O: Adam gets himself up and rips the chair out from under the Sunday Night Voltage finalist, taking it with him as he drags Chris to the ropes and gets the chair around Elite’s neck before setting Chris’s head out on the apron under the bottom rope, AND ADAM SLINGSHOTS OUT ONTO THE APRON TO COME DOWN WITH A STOMP ON THE CHAIR SO THAT IT CRUSHES CLOSED AROUND CHRIS ELITE’S NECK!! CHRIS ISN’T MOVING AT ALL AFTER THAT!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Adam goes underneath the ring once again, looking for something, anything that can lead to what would be a monumental victory here for him and… and he’s got himself a table! “Next Level” Adam Lucas sure is looking to take this match up a notch as he retrieves a table from underneath the ring and he starts setting it up out there at ringside! Adam flips the table from off of the ground to stand it upright and he then puts his attention back to Chris, pulling Chris out from under the bottom rope to get him on the outside as well!

Stew-O: He pulls the chair from around Chris’s neck once he’s got him out on the floor, letting it hit the ground with a clang before he starts getting Chris to his feet and then lifts him onto the table before going back to the apron. Adam goes to the turnbuckles and begins to lift himself up, looking to go up high while he’s still got his sights set on Chris Elite who’s laid out on the table Adam set up at ringside!

Persephone: Well, can he hurry the fuck up? Because Chris is just starting to stir and if he misses this dive I’m gonna fucking laugh- FUCK! ANDRE STARTS CLUBBING ADAM OVER THE BACK OF THE HEAD AFTER CLIMBING UP THE TURNBUCKLES IN THE RING AND NOW I’LL NEVER GET TO SEE THAT FUCKER CRASH AND BURN! Andre’s just ruining everything right now and Adam’s struggling to turn around there from the outside on the turnbuckles.

Stew-O: Definitely a precarious position to be in right now for Adam as Andre’s beating him over the back! Adam’s trying to position himself so that he can turn around but Andre has him right where he wants him, absolutely defenseless as he’s otherwise got no choice but to take those hits while trying to work out how he’s going to get his hands on Andre to stop the assault!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT HE WON’T GET THE CHANCE, AS ANDRE TAKES HIM FROM THE OUTSIDE AND INTO THE RING WITH AN INVERTED SUPERPLEX FROM UP THERE ON THE TURNBUCKLES!!! THE TWO OF THEM GO PLUMMETING TO THE CANVAS AND THEY HIT THE MAT IN A NASTY CRASH!!! ANDRE SAVES CHRIS ELITE FROM BEING A PART OF A POTENTIAL CAR WRECK OF A SIGHT, JUST TO TAKE DOWN ADAM LUCAS!!!

Stew-O: Andre turns over after a moment and begins trudging over to Adam who ended up bouncing over onto his back, and Andre makes the pin in a lateral press!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHH-

Stew-O: Adam Lucas gets his shoulder up! Andre can only shake his head as he looks down at Adam and then at the referee, surely having thought that having caught Adam with his guard down should’ve led to a victory just now! Even Albert Hitchman appears to be in some disbelief, but they know now that Adam’s not at all ready to go down just yet!

Persephone: At this point, I’m rooting for whoever the hell can bring an end to this match. Andre takes Adam to the ropes and slings his head over the bottom rope where he stands on the back of Adam’s neck, choking him with the tightly pulled ring rope! Adam’s thrashing trying to get Andre from off of him but that’s easier said than done as Andre’s putting all his weight down on him while pulling on the top rope for leverage, obviously set on trying to kill this man so that this can be over :blessed:!!!

Gavin Kirkland: But he knows Adam isn’t going anywhere when he steps off his neck before reaching down and pulling him up to get Adam onto his shoulders, turning back toward the ring now-

Stew-O: OPEN YA MATA!!!!! CHRIS ELITE HAS OTHER PLANS AS HE RETURNS TO THE RING WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE TO ANDRE WALKER, AND BOTH HE AND ADAM FALL TO THE MAT!! BUT THAT’S NOT ALL AS HE STARTS RAINING DOWN SHOTS ON ANDRE WITH A CROWBAR THAT HE BROUGHT WITH HIM TO THE RING!!!

Gavin Kirkland: ANDRE’S TRYING TO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM THOSE HEAVY HITTING SHOTS FROM THE CROWBAR, BUT CHRIS IS JUST RELENTLESS!! AND NOW ADAM’S GETTING IT TOO AFTER JUST NEARLY BEING CHOKED TO DEATH! CHRIS IS SEEMINGLY OUT FOR PAYBACK FOR THAT CHAIR SCENARIO FROM A LITTLE BIT AGO AND HE’S ABSOLUTELY LETTING ADAM HAVE IT!

Persephone: Adam unfortunately has the wherewithal to try to go rolling out of reach and Chris is set on following him but Andre grabs Chris from behind- NO! CHRIS JUST WHIRLED AROUND AND CRACKED THE HELL OUT OF ANDRE’S HEAD WITH THAT CROWBAR JUST NOW!! ANDRE’S BARELY ABLE TO STAND AND CHRIS KNOCKS HIM BACK INTO THE CORNER WITH A FRONT DROPKICK, ANDRE FALLING BACKWARD INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AND CHRIS DARTS IN HITTING A SET OF DOUBLE KNEES TO THE SEATED ANDRE!!

Stew-O: AND NOW ANDRE GETS PULLED OUT OF THE TURNBUCKLES BY CHRIS, ELITE HAVING THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION COMPLETELY IN HIS CONTROL AS HE GETS HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! FACE VALUE!!! THE HAMMERLOCK DDT CONNECTS AND ANDRE IS PLANTED ON THE MAT HEAD FIRST!!! CHRIS ELITE TURNING ANDRE OVER FOR THE KING OF ELITE WIN!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHRRR-

Gavin Kirkland: ADAM STOPS THE PIN WITH AN AXE HANDLE TO THE BACK OF ELITE’S HEAD!!

Persephone: BOOOOOO!!! THIS LOOKED LIKE IT WAS ABOUT TO BE OVER!!!

Stew-O: And Adam just ensured that it wasn’t, much to the obvious annoyance of Chris Elite! Andre rolls away while Chris gets to his feet to go for Adam, but Adam meets him head-on once he’s up as well, surprising the Champion with a huge right hand! Chris is rocked for a moment only to end up swinging right back at him landing two shots, BUT MISSES THE BICYCLE KICK AS ADAM SIDESTEPS HIM AND CHRIS CONNECTS WITH NOTHING BUT AIR!

Gavin Kirkland: AND NOW ADAM CATCHES CHRIS WITH A SIDE SUPLEX! CHRIS GETS FLUNG THROUGH THE AIR AND COMES CRASHING DOWN ON HIS ALREADY DAMAGED NECK, ALL THANKS TO ADAM’S DETERMINATION TO DO WHATEVER HE CAN TO WEAKEN HIS OPPOSITION! Chris turns over with a hand to his neck but gets no time to rest as Adam snatches him up in a mounted headlock over the back, applying pressure on the neck knowing it’s a sore spot for Chris!

Persephone: A submission in a match like this? Really? 🙄

Stew-O: Andre’s nowhere in sight, giving Adam more than enough time to get what he wants out of this! Chris is reaching out for that crowbar but Adam wrenches him away in the opposite direction and Elite has to force himself up to his feet on top of already having trouble breathing, but he manages to do it! He tries throwing elbows back at Adam but Adam snuffs out the fire momentarily with a stomp on the back of the leg while keeping that headlock on!

Gavin Kirkland: Chris isn’t going out like this though, once again getting himself back on both feet and he forced them to the corner where he starts walking up the turnbuckles- ADAM LUCAS SHOVES HIM FORWARD AS CHRIS WENT FOR THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, CAUSING CHRIS TO LOSE HIS FOOTING! AND HE ENDS UP HANGING IN A TREE OF WOE POSITION AS ADAM LETS HIM GO! ADAM GRABBING CHRIS BY HIS HEAD AND HE THROWS HIM DOWN SO THAT THE BACK OF HIS HEAD STRIKES THE BOTTOM TURNBUCKLE!!

Stew-O: CHRIS INSTINCTIVELY GOES TO TRY TO COVER HIS HEAD BUT ADAM KICKS HIM IN THE STOMACH AND THAT BRINGS HIS HANDS AWAY, LEAVING HIM VULNERABLE TO GETTING HIS HEAD BASHED INTO THE TURNBUCKLE AGAIN! AND AS HE’S HANGING UPSIDE DOWN STILL, ADAM SPRINGS OFF THE BOTTOM ROPE AND CONNECTS WITH A STOMP UNDER THE JAW WITH SO MUCH FORCE THAT IT RIPS ELITE DOWN FROM THE TURNBUCKLES!!! ADAM WITH THE COVER!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTTHHH-

Persephone: I THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD! WHY’D HE HAVE TO KICK OUT?! :noah:

Stew-O: Chris Elite gets his shoulder up under his own power, but he turns over with a hand pressed right on the back on his neck; that could definitely end up proving to be a problem for him the longer this keeps going!

Gavin Kirkland: Neck injuries are absolutely debilitating for careers in wrestling – that’s why he should just opt out now and let the A show have this one :drakelike:!

Stew-O: I think Andre would much rather take this back to Dynasty without anyone having to forfeit their chance :mjpls:

Gavin Kirkland: I said the A show, not whatever the fuck is going down over there on Fridays :mjpls:

Persephone: Stop arguing like bitches over which of you has the shittier show when this entire Rex-less FPV has been hell enough as it is. 🙄

Gavin Kirkland: ANYWAY, Goatdam is looking to be in full control of the match right now as he brings Chris to stand just before shoving him back into the ropes! AND CHRIS COMES BOUNDING BACK INTO THE LEVEL UP-

Stew-O: NO! CHRIS ELITE GOES OVERHEAD AND COMES DOWN RIGHT IN FRONT OF ANDRE! CHRIS GETS A RIGHT HOOK FROM ANDRE THAT SENDS HIM STUMBLING BACK INTO ADAM WHO KEEPS CHRIS ON HIS FEET BEFORE HE SHOVES CHRIS FORWARD BACK TOWARD ANDRE, AND ELITE DUCKS A CLOTHESLINE AND REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES FOR A CROSSBODY BLOCK INTO ANDRE AND AN ONCOMING ADAM!

Gavin Kirkland: ADAM BASEBALL SLIDES UNDER CHRIS BUT ANDRE GETS TAKEN DOWN- NO! ANDRE ROLLS THROUGH THE MOMENTUM AND POWERS HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET WITH CHRIS IN HIS GRASP! ADAM LUCAS HITS A DROPKICK INTO CHRIS’S BACK AND NOW THAT TAKES DOWN ANDRE, THE TWO OF THEM FALLING INTO THE ROPES AND OUT THE RING!

Stew-O: Andre and Chris struggle to make it up to their feet on the outside, each of them using the apron to try to prop themselves up while trying to shove the other back down, BUT ADAM TAKES CARE OF THAT FOR THE BOTH OF THEM AS HE SHOOTS OUT THROUGH THE ROPES AT CHRIS AND ANDRE IN A SUICIDE DIVE!! ADAM TAKES A RISK AND IT PAYS OFF AS HE HITS HIS TARGETS AS INTENDED!!

Gavin Kirkland: WHAT A HUGE MOVE BY ADAM JUST NOW, ENSURING THAT HE CAN KEEP THE MOMENTUM HE WAS BUILDING IN HIS FAVOR AND THE WORLD TITLE DREAMS THAT COME WITH WINNING THIS ALIVE!!

Persephone: Okay but can he get one of them back in the ring to make the cover?! This could be over right now if he didn’t insist on being so dramatic :noah:!!!

Stew-O: Adam comes rolling off of Andre and Chris to get to his feet, pulling himself up with the guardrail before going under the ring, a toolbox, more chairs, and more kendo sticks coming right past him before he chooses a chair and another kendo stick to slide into the ring! He turns back to get Andre up and he doesn’t hesitate at all to drive him right into the apron! Andre finds himself getting further worn down as Adam repeatedly takes him into the edge of the apron, slamming him into that angle knowing it’s the hardest part of the ring!

Persephone: He rolls Andre into the ring and brings him to his feet to push him into the ropes, and Andre comes back toward Adam who looks to hip toss Andre in the direction of the chair! But Andre manages to block it and snapmares Adam to the mat looking for a shoot kick across the chest but Adam throws himself back to evade it and picks up the kendo stick as he rolls over onto his feet, SWINGING AT ANDRE WITH THAT KENDO STICK! BUT NOW ANDRE DUCKS! WHAT’S WITH ALL THE DUCKING?! CAN THEY LAND ANYTHING ON TIME?!

Gavin Kirkland: AND ANDRE SNATCHES THE KENDO STICK FROM ADAM, BREAKING IT OVER HIS KNEE! He quickly tosses one half out of the ring and Adam runs at him only to get a kick to the stomach! The Interwire Champion grabs him by the hair and starts toward the corner with the jagged end of the broken kendo stick lined up in front of Adam’s eye!

Stew-O: AND ADAM SCREAMS OUT IN PAIN AS HE FALLS BACK TO THE MAT, HAVING JUST GOTTEN THE BROKEN END OF THE KENDO STICK SMASHED INTO HIS EYE AS ANDRE SENT HIM INTO IT BY SLAMMING ADAM FACE FIRST TOWARD THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! THAT OTHER END OF THE KENDO STICK HAD NOWHERE TO GO AFTER IT HIT THE TOP BUCKLE!

Gavin Kirkland: Saturday Night Showdown’s King of Elite finalist is writhing on the mat and the referee is taking the time to check in on him, but the pain that’s surely shooting through his eye right now is too tremendous to even respond to the ring official! I couldn’t imagine being Adam right now; any chance of permanent eye damage and I wouldn’t be able to perfectly see all the ass up close that the women on Showdown stay showing off just for me!

Persephone: I really don’t feel sorry for him at all! Adam pretty much deserves it just as much as the rest of them for making me sit through this match!

Stew-O: Someone who also doesn’t feel sorry for him right now is Andre Walker, as he stalks over despite the ring official’s pleads to just give him a moment to make sure Adam’s okay and ANDRE STABS THE JAGGED END OF THE KENDO STICK INTO ADAM’S BACK! HE COMES DOWN OVER AND OVER AGAIN BETWEEN THE SHOULDER BLADES BEFORE RAKING IT DOWN HIS SPINE, VIOLENTLY SCRATCHING UP AND CUTTING AT ADAM’S BACK!!!

Persephone: Andre kicks him over onto his back AND NOW HE STABS THE STICK RIGHT INTO ADAM’S SIDE! ADAM SCREAMS AS HE TRIES TO TURN AWAY FROM IT BUT ANDRE HAS HIS FOOT RIGHT ON ADAM’S CHEST, USING THE KENDO STICK TO DIG INTO HIS RIBS! AND I JUST CAUGHT A LOOK AT ADAM’S EYE JUST NOW, HE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY FUCKED UP RIGHT NOW! GOOD LUCK TO BETHANY KISSING A MAN WITH THAT FACE!

(As Andre lets up and leaves Adam clutching at his side now, Adam’s hands are brought away from his eye and reveals that the eye he took the broken end of the kendo stick to is already tinted red and puffy from the damage done, sure to swell up more than it already has as he struggles to keep his eye open, and he has an open cut just beneath his eye.)

Gavin Kirkland: Bethany Blue needs a man who can appreciate that ass with both eyes! One good thing coming out of this is that I’m sure that’s all the more reason for Bethany to leave him for me like she knows she already should have :mjlit:!!

Stew-O: Andre was nastily vicious with that kendo stick and I’m sure that it’s sure to only get worse from here as he grabs Adam to get him up and send him into the corner, keeping him trapped in the corner as he tries to go after him again with the broken kendo stick! But Adam has some sense to fight back as he gets his hands up as he saw Andre coming, now trying to push his hands away and keep the Interwire Champion from doing anymore damage!

Persephone: Adam’s probably shitting himself knowing he’s already been a victim of how Andre’s trying to get surgical with that broken weapon and that there had to be more to come at his expense, but Andre clobbers him in the face repeatedly aiming right for the eye! Adam can’t help but cover up and Andre takes that moment to set him up on the top turnbuckle where Andre begins climbing up to-

Gavin Kirkland: CHRIS ELITE GETS UP ONTO THE APRON AND KICKS ANDRE’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM FROM THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE, AND ANDRE CRASHES TO THE MAT! AND NOW CHRIS SLAMS THE TOOLBOX HE’D BROUGHT WITH HIM THAT HAD BEEN LEFT OUT AT RINGSIDE OVER THE BACK OF ADAM’S HEAD TO SEND HIM TO THE MAT ALSO!

Stew-O: Adam drops down in the corner with his hands over the back of his head and Chris enters the ring with the toolbox, USING IT TO SLAM INTO ANDRE’S FACE ONCE HE WAS UP AND ON HIS FEET!! Andre goes down and Chris opens up the toolbox, grabbing hold of a wrench and SLAMMING IT DOWN AT ANDRE’S FACE! HE CATCHES HIM ACROSS THE FOREHEAD AND FACE, NOW GOING FOR THE BLOODIED MOUTH! Andre turns away but only gets it over the back of his head, Chris pounding that wrench against his skull repeatedly while he’s got him down! And now he turns Andre over into a pin!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: THR-

Persephone: Why can’t anyone stay down?!

Stew-O: Andre kicks out much to the relief of Albert Hitchman at ringside, but it doesn’t take long for Chris to get right back into that small chest of available weapons, unwinding a roll of razor wire and getting it around his fist before climbing over Andre to start hammering punches at his face! Cutting up Andre’s face and directing them at his mouth, Chris is looking like a man on a mission!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT ADAM COMES BACK INTO THE FIGHT AS HE TACKLES CHRIS OFF OF ANDRE AND TO THE MAT, HOPING TO CAPITALIZE OFF OF HIM BEING PREOCCUPIED WITH ANDRE! Adam clobbers Chris over the head bare-fisted and Chris tries to cover up after ending up on his stomach in the tackling only for Adam to grab a hold of his hand to start pulling off the razorwire he’d gotten around his fist! AND NOW HE WRAPS THE RAZORWIRE AROUND CHRIS’S NECK, PULLING TIGHT ON THE ENDS TO TRY TO CHOKE CHRIS OUT!!

Stew-O: CHRIS HAS THAT RAZORWIRE CUTTING INTO THE SKIN OF HIS NECK AND ADAM’S TRYING TO MAKE GOOD ON THE DAMAGE DONE EARLIER! CHRIS IS REACHING FOR THE ROPES EVEN THOUGH THERE’D BE NO ROPE BREAK, BUT MAYBE THEN, HE COULD JUST BE HOPING TO GET THERE AND GET HIMSELF OFF OF THE MAT!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT HE’S GOT ADAM ON HIS BACK AND I DON’T THINK CHRIS HAS IT IN HIM TO DRAG BOTH OF THEM ACROSS THE RING! He tries but Adam just pulls back on the razorwire and Chris finds himself with a choice to make on how much more he believes himself to be able to keep going! Chris reaches out to try to trudge across the mat, BUT ADAM MAKES THAT MORE DIFFICULT BY REACHING OVER AND PUNCHING CHRIS IN THE FACE! CHRIS TRIES TO TURN HIS HEAD AWAY BUT ADAM JUST FOLLOWS IN HIS DIRECTION, GIVING CHRIS NO MOMENT TO PROPERLY THINK!!

Stew-O: Adam goes back to pulling on the razorwire some more and Chris is prying at it hoping that he’d be able to get a moment to breathe but it’s pulled too tight and digging too deep into his skin! Adam’s calling on Chris to quit but Elite isn’t about to do that, using his hands to begin to push himself up off of the mat instead and Chris sways before he can even stand fully on his feet! Chris looks like he might fall right back over, but he’s sure to stumble over into the direction of the ropes to keep himself up!

Persephone: I don’t know why he didn’t just quit and save himself all the extra trouble of having to deal with Adam trying to weigh him down, but I’ve been around long enough to know that some of these Elitists would try to find a way out literally having died if it meant winning 🙄

Gavin Kirkland: Chris stumbles as he walks along the ropes, holding on as Adam coils the razorwire around Chris’s neck another time and I can see from the expression on the face of the Unified Tag Team Champion that he’s in an extreme amount of pain! But now he makes it to the turnbuckles and turns to put Adam against them, before starting to throw himself back into the corner to try to force Adam Lucas down off his back!

Stew-O: Chris rams backward causing Adam to hit the turnbuckles to try to shake him down, doing this again and again until Adam’s hold starts to weaken- AND CHRIS REACHES UP TO GRAB HIM BY THE HAIR AND WHIP DOWN TO THE MAT OFF OF HIS BACK!! ADAM GETS FLUNG TO THE MAT AND CHRIS FALLS BACK LEANING INTO THE CORNER GRABBING AT HIS NECK FOR A MOMENT TO BREATHE!! Adam begins to get up and Chris pulls himself away from the turnbuckles to grab Adam from behind once he’s on his feet!

Gavin Kirkland: FUSION DANCE! NO! ADAM WENT OVER CHRIS’S SHOULDER AS HE WAS LIFTED OFF HIS FEET AND HE SHOVES CHRIS ACROSS THE RING TO SEND HIM INTO THE ROPES! AND CHRIS COMES RUNNING OFF THE ROPES BACK TO ADAM!

Stew-O: HONOR BOMB ONTO THE CHAIR!!! ADAM DROPS CHRIS ONTO THE CHAIR STILL IN THE RING WITH A HIP TOSS INTO A CRADLE PILEDRIVER, AND ALL OF CHRIS’S WEIGHT COMES DOWN ON HIS NECK THAT ADAM’S DONE A HELL OF A NUMBER TO THROUGHOUT THIS MATCH!!! AND NOW ADAM PINS HIM DOWN ON THE MAT!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHHRRRREEEE!!!!

Persephone: ANDRE WALKER BREAKS UP THE DAMN PIN! FOR WHAT?! FOR WHAT?! FOR FUCKING WHAT, ANDRE?!

Gavin Kirkland: :mjlol: You know he can’t hear you, right?

Persephone: You think I give a fuck?! This match was fucking over and he just made sure that I’m stuck here even longer!

Stew-O: Andre dove in to break that one up as even he had to know that that looked like it could’ve been it with what’d been done to Chris! As the ring official tries to check on Chris, Andre and Adam are slowly getting to their feet and they meet each other away from the down and out Elite, swinging on each other to try to get the upper hand in the situation! Andre of course going for the eye of Adam that he’s left looking gruesome but Adam isn’t going down, staying up as he batters Walker with right hands of his own at Andre’s face that’s been busted open from the wrench!

Gavin Kirkland: The two of them keep trading blows not wanting to let the other get any type of advantage here, but Andre starts to come at Adam with more hasty punches on track to becoming rapid-fire strikes! Andre starts connecting with a hits to the body and he specifically sends one to the ribs that he had stabbed with the kendo stick earlier! That stuns Adam right up and Andre kicks him in the gut! ANDRE PULLS HIM AND LIFTS HIM UP INTO THE FUTURA FREE!!!

Stew-O: NO! ADAM WRIGGLES HIS WAY BACK DOWN TO HIS FEET AND LOOKS TO TRY TO HOIST ANDRE UP INTO THE AIR, BUT ANDRE HOOKS HIS FOOT AROUND ADAM’S LEG TO KEEP HIMSELF FROM GOING ANYWHERE! ANDRE QUICKLY HITS A KNEE TO THE STOMACH AND THAT GIVES HIM THE OPENING HE NEEDS TO GET ADAM UP INTO THE AIR ONCE AGAIN!

Gavin Kirkland: RIGAMORTUS!!!! ANDRE SWITCHES UP INTO THE JACKHAMMER- NO! ADAM LUCAS COMES DOWN INTO A SMALL PACKAGE PIN!!! HE’S GOT ANDRE TRAPPED IN A PIN AND THE REFEREE HURRIES AWAY FROM CHRIS TO MAKE THE COUNT!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTTTHHHHHRRRREEEE-

Persephone: I’m not even surprised, because of course he kicks out! Andre and Adam race up to their feet with Adam ducking around behind Andre as Andre went for a clothesline, and Adam kicks him from behind to send him into the ropes and Andre comes back into a pop-up knee lift that gets him in the face as he comes back down – deserved for kicking the fuck out!

Stew-O: Andre stumbles back into the ropes and Adam starts beating the hell out of Andre while he’s got him against the ropes, landing forearm after forearm and knee strike after knee strike that all has Andre trying to cover up before sending him across the ring and ADAM RUSHES ANDRE AS HE COMES OFF THE ROPES TO CONNECT WITH A SLINGBLADE THAT TAKES THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION DOWN!!! ADAM MOVES AS FAST AS HE CAN TO GET A HOLD OF ANDRE AFTER TAKING HIM DOWN AND HE WHIPS ACROSS THE RING!

Gavin Kirkland: LEVEL UP!!! THE POP-UP INTO THE POWER- NO! ANDRE PUSHED OFF OF ADAM TO GO ALL THE WAY OVER AS HE SEEMED TO REALIZE WHAT WAS COMING!! ANDRE LANDS ON HIS FEET AND ADAM WHIRLS AROUND TO GET HIM IN A WAISTLOCK, BUT A BLIND BACK ELBOW KNOCKS ADAM AWAY AND ANDRE COMES FROM BEHIND WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG INTO THE CHAIR THAT’S STILL ON THE MAT!

Persephone: ADAM’S FACE CONTINUES TO GET FUCKED UP, AND NOW ANDRE PEELS HIM OFF OF THE CHAIR TO GET HIM UP! ANDRE HAS ADAM IN HIS CLUTCHES AS HE MANEUNVERS HIM UP INTO THE AIR, LOOKING FOR THE FUTURA FREE! BUT ADAM HAS UNFORTUNATELY DECIDED NOT TO DIE TONIGHT AS HE SOMEHOW FINDS THE FUCKING WHEREWITHAL TO WRIGGLE HIMSELF BACK DOWN TO HIS FEET! I FUCKING HATE THIS!

Stew-O: Adam tries to force Andre up into the air for a lift of his own but Andre manages to hook his foot around Adam’s leg in time to prevent himself from going anywhere! Andre quickly comes back with a knee lift into the gut and then a punch again to the ribs! AND THAT SEEMS TO DO IT AS HE GETS ADAM IN THE AIR ONCE AGAIN!

Gavin Kirkland: RIGAMORTUS!!!! ANDRE SWITCHES UP WHAT HE ORIGINALLY HAD IN MIND AND THAT SLAMS ADAM TO THE MAT, KNOCKING ALL THE WIND OUT OF ADAM! AND ADAM FINDS HIMSELF PINNED BY ANDRE, THE REFEREE GOING IN TO COUNT THE PIN AS THE SHOUDLERS ARE DOWN!! KICK OUT! KICK OUT!!!

Persephone: NO! NO! NO! NO! STAY DOWN! STAY DOWN!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHRRRREEEE!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: :blessed:!!!!!!!!!!

Persephone: FUCKING GODDAMMIT!!!!

Stew-O: ADAM LUCAS KICKS OUT!!!

Gavin Kirkland: And not second too late :whew:!!! Andre’s looking frustrated with Adam before he starts hammering away with punches before grabbing Adam by his hair and tossing him across the ring! Give him a chance to get up, damn :noah:!!

Stew-O: Adam hits the mat after getting launched through the air and he looks completely out of it as he stirs on the mat, trying to get himself to his feet as knows that Andre’s still up and moving! Adam slowly begins to bring himself up while Andre keeps his distance, and now Adam turns around AND ANDRE STARTS TAKING OFF INTO A SPRINT!

Persephone: HUNGER ON HILLSIDE! IT’S OVER- FUCK! A KNEE TO THE FACE! ANDRE WAS ABOUT TO LEAP INTO ADAM WHEN HE GOT THAT KNEE TO THE FACE AND ADAM GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD TO SEND HIM INTO THE CORNER WHERE HE JUST FEELS THE NEED TO KEEP THIS FIGHT GOING, UNLEASHING ON ANDRE IN THE CORNER!! THIS JUST WON’T END :mjcry:

Gavin Kirkland: If it means Showdown winning this, I’m all for it! Adam is blasting away at Andre with the strikes determined to keep him on the defensive, but Andre tries to send him over and out the top rope by popping him up into the air and Adam comes down on his feet on the apron! Andre goes to swing but Adam drops down and pulls Andre’s legs out from under him AND THEN PULLS HIM SPLIT-LEGGED INTO THE RING POST!! ANDRE’S TOO STUNNED TO DO ANYTHING AS ADAM PULLS HIM FORWARD INTO THE POST AGAIN, AND NOW TIES THE LEGS UP IN A RING POST FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK!!!

Stew-O: ANDRE’S SCREAMING AS ADAM HANGS UPSIDE DOWN IN THE SUBMISSION HOLD, AND ANDRE’S GOT NOWHERE TO GO OR ANY WAY TO FIGHT ADAM OFF OF HIS LEGS! ANDRE TRIES PUSHING ON THE ROPES TO TRY TO INCH BACK TOWARD THE MIDDLE OF THE RING BUT IT’S SIMPLY NO USE AS ADAM’S WEIGHT IS TOO MUCH TO TRY TO MOVE WITH HIM, NEVER MIND THE FACT THEY’VE GOT THE POST BETWEEN THEM!

Persephone: NOW THE OTHER FUCKER IN THIS MATCH IS BACK UP AND IN THIS! CHRIS MAKES THE DUMB DECISION TO REINSERT HIMSELF IN THE MATCH, SPRINGING OFF THE BOTTOM ROPE IN THE CORNER AND PLANTING HIS BOOTS INTO ANDRE’S FACE WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP!! Chris is stomping the fuck out of Andre’s face right now and it’s kind of karma coming his way if you think about all of what he did to have Adam running around here looking like fucking Quasimodo.

Stew-O: Chris relents and Andre can only cover up his bloody face as Adam still hasn’t released the hold; I don’t think he even knows that Chris is back up! But he’s about to get the message for himself as Chris rolls out the ring and kicks Adam, causing him to drop to the floor! Adam turns over trying to get up but Chris grabs him by the hair AND HITS ADAM’S FACE OFF OF THE RING POST! NOT WHAT ADAM NEEDS RIGHT NOW ALL THINGS CONSIDERED!

Gavin Kirkland: AND NOW CHRIS IS SLAMMING GOATDAM’S FACE INTO THE RING APRON! THIS GUY JUST CANNOT CATCH A BREAK! CHRIS LOOKS TO HEAD DOWN TO THE OTHER RING POST WITH ADAM STILL IN HIS GRASP BUT ADAM SHOVES HIM AWAY JUST IN TIME, AND HE RUNS INTO CHRIS FROM BEHIND AND WRAPS HIM UP AS HE RUNS CHRIS INTO THE BARRICADE JUST AHEAD OF THEM!!

Persephone: I bet this bitch regrets getting back into this shit now that Adam’s ramming him into the guardrail to the point that Chris ends up falling to the ground, unable to keep himself standing! Adam’s able to get a moment to catch his breath as he backs away from the fallen Chris Elite who’s seated against the barricade, AND NOW ADAM GOES RUNNING AT HIM FOR A RUNNING KNEE SMASH TO THE HEAD! BUT CHRIS ROLLS OUT THE WAY IN TIME AND ADAM’S KNEE HITS OFF THE BARRICADE!! HE STUMBLES BACK REACHING FOR HIS KNEE BUT CHRIS HITS IT WITH A CHOP BLOCK AND ADAM GOES DOWN!

Stew-O: THE CHAMPION GETS TO HIS FEET AND FORCES ADAM TO GO INTO THE BARRICADE JUST AHEAD OF THEM! ADAM IS STUNNED AS HE HITS STOMACH FIRST, HUNCHED OVER THE BARRICADE AND CHRIS COMES LEAPING TO HIT HIM OVER THE BACK! Chris starts pounding away on Adam, doing what he can to keep the advantage until he pulls him off the guardrail, getting a punch to the face from Adam! Adam fires back sensing the urgency of the moment and he looks to give back what he was just given!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT CHRIS ISN’T ABOUT TO LET THOSE STRIKES GO UNANSWERED! CHRIS IS PUNCHING HIM RIGHT BACK AS THEY FIGHT OUT HERE AT RINGSIDE! LOOKING TO MAIM THE SHIT OUT OF EACH OTHER RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA!! AND ANDRE’S FINALLY BACK UP IN THE RING, HOBBLING HIS WAY OVER!!

Persephone: Does no one in this match know how to stay dead? I’m not asking for much :mjcry:

Stew-O: ADAM RAMS CHRIS INTO THE BARRICADE NOW, TRYING TO WEAR DOWN CHRIS TO KEEP HIM FROM CAPITALIZING ON WHAT HE’S ALREADY BEEN THROUGH WITH ANDRE, WHO’S COMING DOWN OUT THE RING! AND CHRIS IS STUNNED FOR THE MOMENT- NO! HE JUST SHOT A PUNCH RIGHT FOR THE MANGLED EYE OF ADAM LUCAS, AND ADAM TURNS AWAY WITH CHRIS PULLING HIM INTO A SIDE HEADLOCK! HE PULLS ADAM’S HEAD DOWN SO HE CAN’T SEE THE PUNCHES COMING TOWARD HIS FACE! BUT LOOK AT ANDRE! CHRIS IS TOO FOCUSED ON ADAM THAT HE CAN’T SEE ANDRE COMING NOW EITHER-

Gavin Kirkland: HUNGER ON HILLSIDE THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!!! ANDRE SPEARS BOTH CHRIS ELITE AND ADAM LUCAS THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!!

Stew-O: ANDRE TACKLES THEM BOTH AND ALL THREE OF THEM END UP IN THE WRECKAGE OF THE BARRICADE!!! ALL THREE OF OUR KING OF ELITE FINALISTS ARE DOWN AND OUT!!!

Persephone: I don’t think I’ve ever seen Albert Hitchman waddle over to Andre’s defense faster than he just has :mjlol:!! The look of concern on his face is fucking hilarious seeing as how Andre just threw away his chance to win this match!

Gavin Kirkland: Threw HIS chance away?! Bitch, think of Showdown and Adam Lucas, who’s been through hell and back in this match just to get taken out because fucking cue ball was too stupid to pay attention to his damn surroundings :mjcry:!!

Stew-O: The ring official has left from the ring come over to the chaos and see what he can make of the madness that just went down, looking unsure of what to do and Albert is warning him that he better not try to call this match off!

Persephone: I think he should call it, just fucking do it and leave everyone walking away from this shit as miserable as I’ve been over these past two nights wanting Rex but knowing he’s never coming!

Stew-O: Albert carefully makes his way through the debris and to Andre, doing what he can to shake him back into consciousness, shouting at him that this his is chance to capitalize on this huge moment! Andre finds himself being assisted to his feet with Albert helping him up and the referee is trying to tell Hitchman to get the hell out of this, but he’s paying the official no attention as he helps to keep Andre up!

Gavin Kirkland: This shit is allowed?! :wtf:

Persephone: You’re asking this after just watching Adam get his eye wrecked, Andre get beat in the face with a wrench, and Adam try to kill Chris when he had that razorwire around his neck? :mjpls:

Stew-O: Andre grabs Adam from the ground and begins to make the journey back to the ring, struggling to keep Adam from just slumping over to the ground as Adam’s still out of it! Adam gets rolled into the ring and Andre follows in after him, the referee already back in knowing that Andre’s going for the cover! And now he hooks Adam’s leg and the referee dives down for the count!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!

Referee: TTTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTTHHHHHRRRREEEEEE!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: ADAM LUCAS GETS HIS SHOULDER UP :blessed:!!!!!!

Persephone: 😐

Stew-O: WHAT’S IT GOING TO TAKE KEEP ADAM DOWN?!

Persephone: No, seriously, what the fuck is it going to take?! Because I feel just as deflated as Andre looks right now thinking that that was it!

(Andre rolls off of Adam and onto his back, his hands over his face as it settles in that Adam just kicked out of what was quite possibly his best shot he had at winning. Through everything that he’s had thrown at him, Adam proves just why he’s been as resilient as he as throughout this match and throughout the season to stay in pursuit of his goals.)

Stew-O: Chris is on the outside stirring after running into some trouble getting back into this match, but it’s inside the ring that he and Adam should be concerned about as Andre is beginning to get back up to his feet! Andre wipes the blood away from his face as he stares down at the former Hardcore Champion and he begins to back away, moving over into the far corner of the ring.

Gavin Kirkland: Just stop! Stop! He’s already dead :mjcry:!!!

Stew-O: Andre crouches down in the corner as Adam stirs on the mat, lifting his head up and revealing that there’s more blood coming down from under his eye :yikes:! Adam looks lost as he trudges to the ropes as the way to get himself up and he slowly begins to get himself up in the corner, barely able to keep himself up on his feet as he sways turning himself around!

Gavin Kirkland: HUNGER ON HILLSIDE! FUCK! NO! ADAM LITERALLY JUST LETS HIMSELF FALL TO THE GROUND AND ANDRE LEAPS INTO A CHAIR SWUNG HORIZONTALLY THROUGH THE TURNBUCKLES! ANDRE TAKES THE SIDE OF THE CHAIR TO THE FACE FROM CHRIS ELITE, WHO CLIMBED UP ONTO THE APRON!!!!

Persephone: :mjlol:!!!! ANDRE’S PROBABLY EITHER GOT A BROKE NOSE OR HE’S LOST A FEW TEETH BECAUSE HE HASN’T PULLED HIS HANDS AWAY FROM HIS FACE FROM THE MOMENT HE TOOK THAT SHOT! SERVES HIM RIGHT FOR NOT KNOWING HOW TO END THIS MATCH WITH BOTH THESE BITCHES DOWN! AND NOW CHRIS THROWS THE CHAIR INTO THE RING AND SLINGSHOTS OVER INTO A STOMP DOWN ONTO ANDRE’S BACK TO FORCE HIM TO THE MAT!

Stew-O: Chris rolls through his momentum coming off of Andre and picks up the crowbar along the way, turning up and onto his feet as meets Adam in the middle of the ring just as he got up, cracking him in the midsection with it! Adam doubles over and CHRIS CONNECTS WITH A PELE KICK RIGHT ON THE HEAD THAT TAKES ADAM DOWN!! CHRIS TURNS OVER WITH THE CROWBAR AND STARTS SLAMMING IT DOWN OVER ADAM’S BACK, BEATING IT INTO HIS BACK BEFORE HE TURNS HIM OVER INTO THE COVER!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Adam kicks out and Chris can only shake his head, frustrated that he can’t keep him down either! It’s got to be obvious to them now that it’s going to take even more to make sure that Adam won’t have a way to fight his way back into this!

Stew-O: Chris starts taking his frustrations out on him with a ruthless set of punches, desperately wanting to make good on having gotten himself to this point so that he can get back into World Championship contention!

Persephone: BUT CHRIS HAS TO HURRY BACK TO HIS FEET AS HE SEES ANDRE COMING! ANDRE’S FACE LOOKING NASTY WITH ALL THAT BLOOD COMING DOWN FROM HIS BUSTED NOSE AND CHRIS GETS HIM JUST IN TIME WITH A BACK BODY DROP, AND ANDRE CRASHES DOWN ON THE TOOLBOX STILL IN THE RING! HE ROLLS OFF OF IT IN BLATANT PAIN, AND CHRIS JUMPS DOWN ONTO HIM WITH A SENTON FOR THE COVER!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHRRRR-

Gavin Kirkland: Chris can’t hold him down! So he opts to get him off of the mat and starts firing off on Andre with a number of punches, backing him into the corner and hitting the shit out of the Interwire Champion knowing that Andre will absolutely find a way back into this match if he’s allowed the chance to do so!

Stew-O: Andre’s slouched in the corner after Chris pulls back and he quickly goes to retrieve the chair he had used to get back into this, finding it and going back to Andre with it raised overhead! AND HE GOES TO SWING- ADAM SNATCHES IT FROM BEHIND! CHRIS TURNS AROUND PISSED OFF AND JUST NARROWLY AVOIDS GETTING THE TOP OF THE CHAIR RAMMED INTO HIS STOMACH AS HE SIDESTEPS ADAM! ADAM TRYING TO REPOSITION THE CHAIR ONLY TO HAVE TO KICKED FROM HIS HANDS AND CHRIS SHOOTS A KICK TO THE KNEE TO KNOCK HIM DOWN, AND HE GETS ADAM FOR A RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP BACK ONTO THE CHAIR!

Gavin Kirkland: And right next to the toolbox! Chris Elite reaches into it and grabs a hold of a screwdriver and looks to it for a moment before staring down at Adam, scowling before HE STARTS DRIVING THE TIP OF THE SCREWDRIVER INTO THE OPEN WOUND UNDER ADAM’S EYE! ADAM’S SCREAMING AND CHRIS JUST PRESSES DOWN HARDER AND BLOOD STARTS POURING MORE AND MORE DOWN ADAM’S FACE!

Persephone: Now wait a minute, I could get into this 👀

Stew-O: CHRIS ELITE IS MERCILESS AS HE USES THE SCREWDRIVER TO DIG INTO THE CUT UNDER ADAM’S ALREADY FUCKED EYE, AND IT’S AFTER MOMENTS AND MOMENTS OF AGONIZING PAIN THAT HE FINALLY PULLS BACK! HE’S GOT BLOOD ALL OVER HIS HAND, BUT THAT’S NOTHING COMPARED TO THE FUCKING MESS THAT’S BECOME ADAM LUCAS’S FACE!

Persephone: ANDRE’S COMING OUT OF THE CORNER THOUGH AS HE SEES THAT THEY’RE DOWN, AND CHRIS IS ON THE RISE! ANDRE LEAPS FOR THE KAISER’S TOUCH BUT CHRIS CATCHES THE ARM AND SPINS HIM AROUND INTO A FORWARD LEGSWEEP!

Gavin Kirkland: Chris seemingly senses his opportunity to take advantage as he grabs Andre and pulls him off the mat, wasting no time in starting to batter him back to the ropes with a flurry of rapid-fire forearms and Chris whips him across the ring! But Andre counters and Chris gets whipped across instead, AND CHRIS RETURNS OFF THE ROPES IN A TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! CHRIS HURRIES AFTER ANDRE AND GOES TO GET HIM UP WITH A BACK SUPLEX LIFT!

Persephone: But he’s got him too close to the ropes and Andre pulls himself out of Chris’s grasp and over the top rope before anything can happen. 🙄 Andre stays on his feet on the apron and kicks Chris from behind to send him lurching forward to have room to get back inside. Andre steps through the ropes and back in the ring, GETTING A CHAIR THROWN AT HIM BY CHRIS BUT ANDRE CATCHES IN TIME!!

Stew-O: BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!!! CHRIS CONNECTS WITH THE SUPERKICK INTO THE CHAIR AND IT HITS ANDRE RIGHT IN THE FACE!!!! HE LAUNCHED THE CHAIR AT ANDRE WITH ENOUGH TIME FOR HIM TO CATCH IT AND ANDRE WAS NONE THE WISER TO IT, AND NOW HE’S DOWN!!!

Gavin Kirkland: CHRIS THROWS HIMSELF DOWN ONTO ANDRE IN THE COVER!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHHRRRREEEE!!!

Stew-O: ADAM BREAKS UP THE PIN!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: ADAM SAVES HIS CHANCES OF BECOMING KING OF ELITE AND ESTABLISHING HIMSELF AS ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST, FRESHEST STARS OF EAW!!!

Persephone: So close, yet still so far from the end :mjcry:

Stew-O: Adam disposes of Andre from the ring and Chris has surely got to be frustrated knowing that he was just so close accomplishing his own goal of winning this monumental accolade that’s set plenty of EAW stars up for a World Title run! And Chris would love nothing more than to main event Pain for Pride a second time, but Adam’s trying to ensure he can get his own first!

Gavin Kirkland: Adam Lucas comes back around for Chris and to grab him but Chris comes up to a knee with a gut punch! Chris landing another as he starts to fight his way to his feet and Adam is trying to hold his grasp on him as Chris gets up JUST TO SHOVE HIM AWAY TO CREATE SOME DISTANCE!!!

Persephone: ANOTHER BOX OFFICE SMASH!!! NO! ADAM DUCKED DOWN AND BEHIND CHRIS, PUSHING HIM TOWARD THE ROPES AND HE TRIES TO TAKE HIM DOWN IN A ROLL UP BUT CHRIS HOLDS ONTO THE TOP ROPE, LEAVING ADAM TO GO ROLLING AWAY! CHRIS TRIES TO RUSH JUST AS ADAM IS COMING UP OFF THE MAT AND LOOKS TO STRIKE WITH A BIG TIME LARIAT!

Stew-O: BUT ADAM GETS THE ARM AND SPINS THEM AROUND, WHIPPING CHRIS BACK ACROSS THE RING AND CHRIS COMES RUNNING OFF THE ROPES!!!

Gavin Kirkland: LEVEL UP!!!!!! ADAM GETS CHRIS ELITE WITH THE POP-UP POWERBOMB AND CHRIS SENTS SLAMMED TO THE MAT, RATTLING THE RING!!!

Stew-O: ADAM’S BEEN FIGHTING FOR THIS WHOLE MOMENT AND NOW HE’S GOT IT!!! NO ONE AROUND TO BREAK IT UP!!!! ADAM COLLAPSES DOWN ON CHRIS AND HE HOOKS THE LEG!!! THE RFEFEREE GOES IN TO COUNT!!!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

Persephone: CHRIS ELITE KICKS OUT?!!!?!?!?!?!?!

Stew-O: CHRIS ELITE DOES GET HIS SHOULDER UP IN TIME AND ADAM LUCAS HAS HIS HANDS ON HIS HEAD IN DISBELIEF!!! HE THOUGHT HE HAD IT, AND SO DID I!!!

Gavin Kirkland: I WANT A FUCKING REPLAY! THAT WAS THREE! SHOWDOWN SHOULD HAVE THIS!!!

Persephone: AND I JUST WANT THIS SHIT TO BE OVER WITH SO FUCKING BAD!!!!! 😭

Stew-O: Adam sits up shaking his head, pulling at his hair looking entirely let down right now, he’s still in shock! But he can’t wait too long to get over it – he still has to capitalize on the moment and it’s looking like it could be his if he can do it!

Gavin Kirkland: Adam staggers up to his feet and with a hold on Chris, looking down on him for a moment BEFORE HE STARTS CLUBBING A LIFELESS CHRIS OVER THE BACK!! ADAM IS RELENTLESS AS HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT CHRIS BEATEN ENTIRELY THE HELL DOWN AND WON’T HAVE A CHANCE OF FIGHTING BACK!!! AND NOW ADAM GETS HIM UP AND WHIPS HIM ACROSS THE RING-

Stew-O: ANDRE WALKER IS THERE ON THE OUTSIDE TO REACH INTO THE RING AND GRAB CHRIS BY THE LEGS! HE YANKS CHRIS DOWN AND PULLS HIM OUT THE RING, AND ADAM DARTS ACROSS THE RING FOR A BASEBALL SLIDE ONLY TO MISS! HE ENDS UP ON HIS FEET ON THE OUTSIDE AND ANDRE MEETS HIM WITH A STRIKE!

Persephone: BUT ADAM STAYS UP AND SWINGS RIGHT BACK! ADAM GOES AFTER ANDRE WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS, EVEN MORE DESPERATE NOW AFTER KNOWING HOW CLOSE HE WAS TO WINNING! ANDRE GETS A KICK TO THE STOMACH AND ADAM GRABS HIM FOR A SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE THAT’S GONNA TAKE ANDRE’S HEAD OFF!

Gavin Kirkland: Andre ducks down though and Adam’s own momentum sends him hurtling toward a rising Chris Elite, AND CHRIS LIFTS HIM UP AND INTO A FLAPJACK ONTO THE STAIRS!!!! ADAM’S FACE BANGS OFF THE STEPS AND CHRIS DUMPS HIM THE REST OF THE WAY OVER THE STAIRS!!!

Stew-O: HE’S GOT TO WATCH OUT FOR ANDRE THOUGH AS ANDRE GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND AND LIFTS HIM UP OFF HIS FEET! BUT CHRIS THROWS BACK ELBOWS TO KNOCK ANDRE IN THE FACE AND CHRIS JUST HAS TOO MUCH FIGHT LEFT IN HIM FOR ANDRE TO HOLD ONTO HIM, AND CHRIS ENDS UP GETTING SET ON THE STAIRS!

Gavin Kirkland: Andre tries to back after him by trying to sweep his legs BUT CHRIS JUMPED BACK AS ANDRE REACHED FOR HIM AND GETS ANDRE ON THE WAY DOWN, SLAMMING HIS FACE INTO THE STEPS! ANDRE FALLS TO HIS KNEES AND CHRIS GRABS A HANDFUL OF HAIR, REPEATEDLY SLAMMING ANDRE’S FACE INTO THE TOP OF THE STEPS AND THERE’S NO ONE THAT CAN STOP HIM!!! HE FINALLY RELEASES ANDRE AND LOOKS AROUND AT HIS FALLEN OPPONENTS SENSING HIS CHANCE!!!

Persephone: Chris limps down the stairs and grabs Andre to bring him around to the front of the steps, getting him into position for a suplex but Andre blocks it! Andre drops down to his knee and a frustrated Chris starts punching at his head, fed up! Chris tries to lift him again but Andre stops him once again and he tackles him to the ground off the steps! The two of them rolling on the ground trading strikes, trying to beat the last bit of fight out of each other and I can’t only that’s what this all leads to!

Stew-O: Chris gets up with a handful of Andre’s hair and goes to slam his face off the apron but Andre plants his hands first, and then throws strikes into Chris’s midsection! AND NOW HE CHOPS HIS NECK CAUSING CHRIS TO STUMBLE BACK, COUGHING UP BLOOD AND ANDRE TRIES TO TAKE HIM INTO THE POST ONLY TO BE KICKED AWAY! ANDRE STUMBLING BACK INTO THE TABLE THAT’S STILL UP AT RINGSIDE!

Gavin Kirkland: AND CHRIS RUNS AT ANDRE FOR A BOX OFFICE SMASH!!! BUT THE ATTEMPT GETS THWARTED AS WALKER LIFTS HIM UP AND INTO THE AIR!!!

Stew-O: TNL!!!! THE NEXT LEVEL PUTS CHRIS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

Gavin Kirkland: CHRIS FINDS HIMSELF UNEXPECTEDLY GOING THROUGH THE TABLE, CAUGHT BY ADAM AFTER ANDRE LAUNCHED HIM UP INTO THE AIR!!!

Stew-O: ADAM MIGHT’VE NOT BEEN THE ONE TO POP CHRIS INTO THE SET-UP BUT ADAM WAS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE, THERE TO CATCH CHRIS WITH THE CUTTER AS HE CAME DOWN!!!! CHRIS IS LAID TO WASTE IN THE PIECES OF THE TABLE!!!

Persephone: AND NOW ANDRE TRIES TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ADAM HAVING TO GET HIMSELF UP, GRABBING ADAM FROM BEHIND AND LAUNCHING HIM- NO! ADAM TURNS AND ANDRE CRASHES INTO THE BARRICADE! ANDRE GETS THROWN ACROSS THE RINGSIDE AREA AND HE TRIES TO HURRY TO GET HIMSELF UP!

Gavin Kirkland: Adam’s looking menacing with that chair he’d used earlier to hit that Honor Bomb on Chris, AND NOW HE SWINGS IT AT ANDRE BUT ANDRE DUCKS AROUND THE RING POST AND ADAM HITS NOTHING BUT STEEL!! THE BATTERED CHAIR BREAKS AND A LEG OF IT COMES FLYING OFF!! ANDRE TRIES TO COME BACK AROUND AND CATCH THE BLOODY-FACED ADAM WITH HIS GUARD DOWN, BUT THE TOP OF THE CHAIR MEETS ANDRE’S BUSTED FACE AND HE GOES DOWN!!!

Stew-O: Adam collapses beside Andre, exhausted as he looks around to see that Chris Elite hasn’t moved a muscle since going through the table! Adam pulls himself up with the apron after putting the chair aside and he grabs Andre to roll him into the ring! Something falls out from under Andre in the process though? Adam’s unaware as he gets to his feet and works to get Andre’s dead weight to a vertical base as well, tired and exhausted as he leans into him to keep him up against the ropes! Adam now whipping Andre across the ring- but Andre doesn’t come back as he somehow manages to hook an arm around the top rope!

Gavin Kirkland: Adam can’t believe Andre’s still got some awareness left in him and he charges at Andre just to get a back elbow to the face! Adam’s knocked away and he gets his lefts ripped out from under him by Andre! AND NOW HE ROLLS OVER ADAM AND TO HIS FEET IN A FIREMAN’S CARRY!! ANDRE THINKING SAMOAN DROP!!!

Persephone: BUT ADAM REFUSES TO FUCKING DIE ALREADY, GETTING IN ELBOW SHOTS TO THE SIDE OF ANDRE’S HEAD!!! ADAM’S FIGHTING LIKE HIS LIFE DEPENDS ON IT AND ANDRE’S TRYING TO KEEP HIM HELD UP, BUT ADAM DROPS DOWN HIS BACK AND LANDS A DROPKICK TO THE BACK!! ANDRE IS SENT BARRELLING ACROSS THE RING INTO THE CORNER WHERE HE FALLS INTO THE TURBUCKLES!!!

Stew-O: Andre finds the ropes to start pulling himself up, and Adam’s across the ring anticipating him getting to his feet! ANDRE GETS TO HIS FEET AND STARTS DASHING ACROSS FROM THE OPPOSITE CORNER! ADAM LEAPS JUST AS ANDRE TURNS AROUND-

Gavin Kirkland: THE BROKEN FUCKING CHAIR LEG TO THE FACE!!! ADAM LEAPS INTO THE BROKEN CHAIR LEG THAT ANDRE MUST’VE BROUGHT WITH HIM INTO THE RING AND ADAM DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT!!!

Stew-O: AND IT MUST’VE GOTTEN HIM IN THE EYE TOO AS HE FALLS BACK TO THE MAT, THRASHING AROUND WITH HIS A HAND OVER HIS EYE!!! ADAM SLAPS THE MAT WITH THE OTHER, NO DOUBT HAVING THAT EXCRUTIATING PAIN EXACERBATED!! Adam gets himself up to a knee as he presses his hand over his bloody face that’s just GUSHING blood right now! Adam rising to his feet!

Persephone: HUNGER ON HILLSIDE!!!!!

Stew-O: ANDRE CHARGES OUT THE CORNER AND PRACTICALLY TRIES TO CUT ADAM IN HALF AS HE TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A SPEAR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! ADAM IS SPRAWLED OUT ON THE CANVAS AND ANDRE TURNS OVER TO MAKE THE COVER!!!!!!

Referee: OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEE!!!!

Referee: TTTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTTTTHHHHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Leaving Caladan’ by Hans Zimmer begins to play and Andre doesn’t even immediately pull himself off of Adam, still laying on top of him while the referee is up and pointing down at Andre to indicate that he’s won the match!)

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… AND THE 2022 KING OF ELITE TOURNAMENT WINNER…. AAAAANNNNNNNNDDDDDDDRRRRREEEEE WAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLKKKKKKKEEEEERRRR!!!

Gavin Kirkland: FUCK :mjcry:!!!

Stew-O: ANDRE WALKER HAS DONE IT, DEFEATING CHRIS ELITE AND ADAM LUCAS TO BECOME THE KING OF ELITE, EARNING HIMSELF A PLACE IN EAW’S STORIED HISTORY BOOKS OF UNDENIABLE STARS WHO’VE WON THIS TOURNAMENT!!

Persephone: Who gives a fuck?! I’m the real winner here – this shit is finally fucking over :blessed:!!!

Gavin Kirkland: It may be over, but it didn’t get to this point without all three of these men having to dig deep and wear down each other, at times getting more ruthless than I could’ve anticipated! Chris Elite practically tried to gouge Adam’s eye out just to be able to call himself King!

Stew-O: It took a sensational amount of effort between both Chris Elite and Andre Walker for Adam Lucas to be subdued in what turned out to be his finals moments of the match, and he’s just gory goddamn mess right now who’s certainly going to be in need of medical attention! And Chris Elite still hasn’t moved from where he’d been put through the table, unable to keep going when it came down to it himself, but his veteran resiliency throughout this match and determination to not be left out of this without having made his mark was undeniable!

(EMTs arrive to assist both Adam and Chris, while Andre has finally gotten himself up into a seated position. The referee has retrieved both the Interwire Championship and the King of Elite crown for the Champion, and Albert Hitchman has arrived into the ring as well. While he takes the Interwire Title from the official, he demands that he place the crown on Andre’s head and the referee complies before assisting Andre to his feet.)

Stew-O: Friday Night Dynasty’s Andre Walker finds himself joining the likes of Malcolm Jones in having become King of Elite while also reigning as the Interwire Champion! Andre’s potential to go down as one of the best has long since been recognzied and highly regarded, with showings against the likes of DEDEDE and Ronn Banks, his participation in the first-ever Stadium Stampede Match this season, and his run with the New Breed Championship setting a new record for longest reign all speaking to what kind of potential that this man holds!

Gavin Kirkland: It’s an amazing feat no doubt, as he follows up Kassidy Heart’s victory from last year, The Visual Prophet’s King of Elite win before that, and Malcolm’s prior to that, just to give everyone an even better idea of the names he’s just joined ranks with! If all of their success is any indication of what could come for Andre in the future, then whatever he builds upon the success he’s already made for himself could up looking more endless!

Persephone: But you know what isn’t endless? This broadcast! They all fought atrociously long and seemed to be set on being aggravating as fuck tonight for me, surely knowing that I wasn’t interested in this since Rex wasn’t here, but I believe it’s time to wrap this up!

Stew-O: I’m sure you weren’t even a thought in their mind as they went through hell and back for this, but yes, thank you to everyone for joining us here at King of Elite! There’s so much to be anticipated on the horizon as we continue off from here, and after this FPV, there’s only going to be so much more to be excited about and look forward to! I’m Stew-O, and with me has been Gavin Kirkland and Perspehone, and this us signing off!

(With cameras still focused on the ring, Andre looks around the wreckage of everything, his opponents being tended to outside of the ring and knowing that he survived all of it for this. He motions for Albert to hand him the Intwiere Championship and Hitchman doesn’t even hesitate to do so and proceeds to step back, applauding Andre in the background as Walker hoists the Intwire Title in the air. Bloody and banged up much like what had been his opposition, the scene comes to a close on the triumphant sight of Andre Walker still raising his Interwire Championship now as the King of Elite. From there, the scene fades to black.)

(Friday Night Dynasty opens back up into the Phoenix Suns Arena with the crowd anticipating what’s to come next and it isn’t long before “It Follows” by Cane Hill begins to play into the arena to the sound of boos! Xander makes his way from the back with his head lowered, looking at the ground as he comes out onto the stage. Getting just to the top of the ramp, Xander raises his head and looks around the crowd, letting them finally see his face and the intensity in his eyes says enough.)

Stephie Love: Please welcome to the ring at this time…. XANDER PAYNE!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: He doesn’t look much better than the last time we saw him out here :lupe:

Jake Mercer: Well damn, could you be any ruder about it?! He’s clearly been working out :wtf:!

Stew-O: You know that’s not what she meant :mjpls:

Jake Mercer: : mjgrin:!

Flannery McCoy: 🙄 But thanks, Stew. After watching Ronn Banks burn down his wrestling school that Xander had been talking about restoring and fixing up, Xander was left in the ring just honestly going through it. We’ve seen Xander go through a course of emotions throughout his time in EAW, but this one really seemed to hit him closer than anything else.

Stew-O: There was just simply nothing he could do about it and I think that made things even worse. Win or lose, Xander has often settled his battles inside of the ring on his own merit but watching him react to what Banks did, Xander actually seemed to be pretty helpless.

(Xander hardly even reacts to the crowd, just barely sneering at one of the audience members in the front row while others receive glares from the former World Champion. He pauses just in front of the steps for a moment before heading up them and stepping through the ropes, walking across the ring and motioning for a microphone that he ultimately brings with him back to the middle of the ring. “It Follows” fades out and Xander is left to silently stand in the ring. After moments of looking at the crowd in front of him, Xander raises his microphone.)

Xander Payne: Last week… Last week, while I stood in this very ring and let everyone know what more I think of Ronn Banks, that same man went to the Evelyn Convention Center – a place where I honed my craft, got my career going, shared personal moments with some of those closest to me – and Ronn Banks set the entire fucking place on fire.

(The crowd cheers, more in part due to the person responsible for the fire. The audience’s reaction brings a disgusted and angry look upon Xander’s face, and he shakes his head.)

Xander Payne: I built my career from the ground up there and for years, I’ve spent time and money finding ways to give back to it. I was actually trying to help and do something good, hoping that with the care that went into what I was doing could actually allow it to prosper – possibly even thrive more than it ever had with what more I was looking to do with it. But Banks…. Banks went and burned everything to the ground, destroyed it, ruined it – knowing he did that makes me absolutely sick to my stomach and there just truly aren’t enough words to properly get across to everyone how much he’s going to regret what the fuck he did. Maybe some of the ways I initially thought to get back at him would’ve been satisfying and I don’t doubt that they would’ve been…. but only for the moment, because whatever the fuck I could’ve done time at Pain for Pride, no matter how much he would’ve deserved what would’ve come his way, it would’ve only been a temporary fix. Ronn deserves so much more than some blindside attack in a parking lot, more than getting his head smashed in by a steel chair in some backstage scrap – not because I hold him in higher regard than anyone else, but because that fucker should be allowed to come into Pain for Pride in pristine condition before I fuck his entire life up and have the entire world as a witness for every bit of how I broke him down, bloodied their hero, and fucking left him for dead.

Xander Payne: I’ve had a week to think about what I could’ve done and what I’m going to do, but as for right now, coming out here instead of unexpectedly popping up on the tron from some other location that’d be personal to Banks, is me showing that I’m the bigger man in this situation. This isn’t going to devolve into something that’s forgotten weeks from now, not even two or three months – it’ll be a Pain for Pride moment broadcasted to the masses as something that’ll last forever. My revenge will be sending Ronn Banks to the retirement home for the third time while everyone else is left to remember him not as a legend, not as a man who helped to pave the way for anyone who’s ever come through EAW’s doors after him, but as nothing more than a battered and bloody corpse that was left at my feet while I stood over him with his blood staining my hands. Watching me destroy this old fuck is going to be an honor for all of you, as you all view what an absolute fucking mistake it was for him to make this an Extreme Rules Match because there is going to be not a single thing that prevents me from being the final nail is Banks’s coffin. You might’ve burned down the Evelyn Convention Center, but when it comes to me, Banks? You cannot kill what you did not create. This old nostalgia act of yours is going to be finished at Pain for Pride after I-

(But before Xander can continue, “Shock The World” by Lloyd Banks sends the crowd into a wild frenzy of cheers! An annoyed Xander slowly turns to face the stage, where he sees Ronn Banks making his way out looking just the slightest bit amused. Banks slowly claps on his way down the ramp while he looks into the ring at Xander before getting into the ring.)

Flannery McCoy: Is this a good idea? I don’t know if I’d trust Xander to just not snap on Banks right now and leave him in a heap because of what he did :lupe:

Jake Mercer: You would think after Battle of Egypt that he’d have his reservations, but I know Xander won’t hesitate to do it again if he had to!

Stew-O: Banks surely looks comfortable being in the ring right now; I’m sure he’s more than willing to defend himself if he has to.

Jake Mercer: Xander’s lured him into a false sense of confidence and security, causing him to have his guard down; what a genius!

Flannery McCoy: :usure:

(For a moment, neither man in the ring says anything even after “Shock The World” by Llyod Banks has faded out. Banks finally is the first to break the silence with the microphone he’d had in his back pocket.)

Ronn Banks: What, you suddenly forgot how to speak? But you just had so much to say and I was so looking forward to hearing the rest of how you think you’re such a big, tough guy for not doing anything to get back at me! …I gotta say, it’s cute, this whole little act of yours.You know, I really thought you would try to one-up me and do something like breaking into my house and threatening my family or something crazy, but wouldn’t you know it?! You didn’t! Coming out here, droning on and on and on as you bore everyone to sleep- sorry, what I meant was you’re preaching on and on to everyone about how you’re better because you haven’t crossed any big personal lines, that you’re going to retire me – gosh, you really got me in a bind here. I’m not sure what more I can do about all this. I mean, you came out here and really showed me up; I don’t think there’s any coming back from any of this for me.

Xander Payne: Is there a point to you being out here? What the fuck do you want?

Ronn Banks: Well, if you just really have to know so bad and you want me to spoil the surprise: …nothing. I don’t want anything from you. I just think it’s funny that, once again, it seems the biggest threat anyone could lob my way is the ever-scary promise of being the one to retire me or put me out of action, because you’d be surprised by how many people over the course of five years will have said that they’re going to retire you or end your career permanently, only for those same people to be gone, exiled, or left to be nothing more than names lost to time since their so-called threats never amounted to shit. Meanwhile, out of all of them that wanted to give me those same tired promises that went unfulfilled, I’m the one who’s able to stand here in this EAW ring and tell you exactly why shit like that doesn’t faze me in the slightest because I’m someone who’s pretty much heard it all. Anything you could think of, I can just about guarantee that I’ve heard it from ten or twenty other people before you.

Xander Payne: If you want to be the idiot who goes and just lumps me into that same pile of names, then I’m certainly not going to stop you. The only way someone like you – someone who comes out here and acts like you’ve built up some tough exterior that I’ll have to break through in order to beat you – will ever realize and be brought to admit how wrong you are, is to beat you. I’m not like all other people, I’m far different than you could ever possibly expect-

Ronn Banks: Yeah? What makes you different then? What makes you any different than anyone around today like Jake or like Andre? Because they found it in themselves to say that they were going to make a name off of me, use me as some kind of launch pad to set themselves up for even bigger things by beating me – neither of them got what they wanted as far as that win over me goes, but they were definitely left wondering how they were going to recover. There isn’t a damn thing that’s preventing you from being left to do the same, not a thing that says you’re going to be some great exception just because you say you’re not going to end up like them, because you know damn well without the slightest shadow of a doubt even if you don’t want to admit it in front of everyone right now, that I could make it happen. I’m sure you’re not going to like it, I’m sure you’re not going to want to “trust the process” – but that’s for you to figure out while my only concern will have been just how I’m going to kick your ass at Pain for Pride.

(Xander looks at Banks through a glare, scowling at him while Banks looks nothing but serious. The smile he had on his face from when he first came out upon interrupting Xander is gone, and it’s really no question about whether Banks plans to take any of this seriously despite initially mocking Xander.)

Xander Payne: I don’t have to convince you right here I’m different by just telling you that I am, because I already have. I left you down and out at Battle of Egypt gurgling in a puddle of your own blood, you’re the one who had to be assisted out of the stadium by multiple EMTs, and you more than showed that you know it when you decided that the next best step for you was to go and burn down a place that something important to me. If you didn’t think I was any different, if you thought I wasn’t someone to take seriously, if you thought the words that come out of my mouth weren’t worth a fucking thing, then would you really have gone and made things as personal on your side of things? The fact is, you know that this is going to be something that you can’t just brush off as just another measly threat to the image of you that exists or the identity that’s been built up because of what these fans believe, what people in the back think of you because of your influence. What are they going to think when the oh-so-great Ronn Banks can’t bring himself to stand after it all? What are they going to think when they see you having to get assistance out of another event – again – because of what I’LL have done to you?

(Banks scoffs, shaking his head.)

Ronn Banks: Sure, you got something out of me; you could say you rekindled a fire that hasn’t burned in a long time :troll:. But what good does that do for you, Xander? Because, after all, you’re the one who came out bragging about getting my blood on your hands but you saw how I retaliated and suddenly it was too, suddenly it was me taking it too far. You can’t turn the heat up on things and then pull your hands away because suddenly shit got too hot for you to handle. All this does is let me know that you’re dealing with someone who’s out of your depth, someone you haven’t had to deal with who’ll go that far and have no problem going even further – and did I not tell that you’d come to learn that you’re not dealing with just anybody? All that’s going to happen is that things are only gonna get worse for you, because nobody knows extreme like I do, especially at Pain for Pride – and I can tell you right now that you aren’t gonna like how this one ends for you if you so much as even dared to think that the fire I started in that school came even close to being the worst that I’m capable of.

(The mention of the destroyed Evelyn Convention Center brings Xander marching right up to Banks, who doesn’t even flinch as Xander gets in his face. The two of them stare each other down, almost as if either of them is waiting for the other to make the first hit. Microphones lowered, they get into an exchange of words with Xander looking more angered since coming out and Banks clearly has no problem talking right back.)

Xander Payne: (off-mic) You think you’re intimidating? You think I’m scared? You don’t know shit!

Ronn Banks: (off-mic) I think you’re real worried about having to face defeat if you can’t go as far as I’m ready to. What happens if this turns out to be just another thing of yours where you can’t finish what you started?

Xander Payne: (off-mic) Fuck you. I’m not just gonna finish all this, I’m gonna finish your career while I’m at it.

(Banks rolls his eyes and waves dismissively at Xander just before turning to leave.)

Jake Mercer: :krabs:!!!

Stew-O: XANDER STRIKES BANKS DOWN WITH A HEADBUTT!!! HE JUST GRABBED BANKS BY THE SHOULDER AS HE WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE AND DROPPED HIM TO THE MAT!

Flannery McCoy: XANDER STANDS OVER BANKS, LOOKING ABSOLUTELY FURIOUS!!! I KNEW SOMETHING LIKE THIS COULD ONLY EVER COME TO BLOWS!

(But by the time Banks has begun to sit up, Xander has already left from the ring. Banks brings his hand away from his face and tries to shake off the effects of the headbutt as he pulls himself up to his feet, watching as Xander looks at him from the ramp for a moment before turning away to continue up it. He shakes his head, anger still evident on his face as he storms to the back leaving Banks in the ring watching on. From there, the scene fades out.)

[SCREENBAR: HOUSE OF GLASS 2021 – XANDER PAYNE VS. THE VISUAL PROPHET – GLASS WALLZ MATCH FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP]

(Standing outside the Glass Wallz structure that’s in place, Stephie Love has her microphone ready to announce the next contest!)

Stephie Love: The following contest is a GLASS WALLZ MATCH for the EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP, where the only way to win is by pinfall or submission!!!

Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

(‘Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)’ by Jimi Hendrix begins to play and the crowd bursts into cheers as Viz makes his way out, ready to get this one started!)

Stephie Love: Introducing first, the challenger, from Enagdine, Michigan… weighing in at 280 pounds…. THE VISSSSSSUUUUUUUAAAAAAALLLL PRRRRRROOOOOPPPPPHHHHHEEEEETTTTTTT!!!!!

Stew-O: Viz had to do one thing and one thing only for this match: show at Territorial Invasion that he could put on a performance that would convince StarrStan into giving him the World Title shot he and Dr. Angelo D’Angelo felt Viz was owed for helping StarrStan at Pain for Pride! Win, lose, draw – it didn’t matter but Viz went above and beyond by putting together a team that ensured that Dynasty would win the Stadium Stampede Match!

Flannery McCoy: And FINALLY he’s getting his shot! He had his chance at Operation: Doomsday to defeat Andrea Valentine when it became a number one contender match, but he came up short. But as you said, Stew, he absolutely more than made up for it by showing exactly why he should’ve had this match and now he’s got to capitalize on it!

Jake Mercer: You’re saying that like he can’t :mjpls:! Viz absolutely has this won – he’s doing it for our people, for our culture, me and him are in his together!

Stew-O: 😐

(Viz enters through the doors of Glass Wallz and takes his place in the ring. His music fades out and ‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill takes over to a thunderous amount of boos as Xander makes his way out with the World Heavyweight Championship raised!)

Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Toronto, Ontario, Canada… weighing in at 253 pounds… he is the current EAW World Heavyweight Champion…. “PAYNEKILLER” XAAAAANNNNNNDDDDDEEEEEERRRRRR PAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYNNNNNNNNEEEEEE!!!

Jake Mercer: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Stew-O: Xander Payne has been no one to take lightly, as he’s torn through challenger after challenger, opponent after opponent and it’s left everyone wondering who would be able to stop him! Viz is the choice right now, but Xander has had to overcome plenty – defeating a number of World Champions along the way in his own right – and everything that he’s been through has only continued to build up over time for moments like this!

Flannery McCoy: Xander absolutely deserves his credit for all that he’s accomplished, but I can’t help that his ego has only grown just as much and that could be his undoing. He just barely held off on going after Viz at the end of Dynasty the other week, but if he can’t hold himself together then he just might be able to get this one done!

Jake Mercer: Xander’s done good for himself, I don’t think that can be denied even by me, because he has put in the work – but he’s no Visual Prophet :drakelike:!!

Stew-O: He just may end up proving that he doesn’t need to be anyone but the proclaimed World Heavyweight God, Jake, and with the journey Xander’s been on, he could very well do it!

(Xander enters the ring and raises the World Heavyweight Championship up in Viz’s face, the two of them staring each other down before the referee takes the Championship away and passes it out to the other ringside officials. As another official locks the door, the referee inside of Glass Wallz with the two Elitists calls for the bell!)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: VIZ TAKES OFF CHARGING AT XANDER RIGHT OUT THE GATE, LOOKING FOR A CLOTHESLINE TO START THINGS OFF BUT XANDER DUCKS! XANDER DUCKS DOWN OUT THE WAY AND VIZ’S OWN MOMENTUM CARRIES HIM TO THE ROPES, THE FORMER WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION BARRELLING FORWARD WITH XANDER POPPING HIM UP INTO THE AIR-

Flannery McCoy: BUT VIZ TAKES FLIGHT AS HE GOES RIGHT OVER XANDER’S HEAD AND LANDS ON THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! Xander turns around and tries to go strike Viz from behind, but Viz gets him in the face with a back kick that takes him down! Xander hurries to get up AND NOW VIZ LEAPS FOR A FLYING KNEE STRIKE BUT XANDER STEPS OUT THE WAY, VIZ GETTING TO HIS FEET AFTER ROLLING THROUGH ON THE MAT!

Jake Mercer: AN STO BY XANDER! VIZ GETS ABSOLUTELY THROTTLED TO THE MAT ONCE XANDER GETS A HAND AROUND HIS NECK WHILE SWEEPING HIS LEGS RIGHT OUT FROM UNDER HIM AND THE BACK OF VIZ’S HEAD STRIKES HARSHLY OFF THE CANVAS! XANDER CLIMBS OVER VIZ AND DELIVERS PUNCH AFTER PUNCH, PUMMELING VIZ’S HANDSOME FACE!

Flannery McCoy: Handsome face? :skip:

Jake Mercer: Tell me I’m wrong :mjpls:

Flannery McCoy: I’m not having this discussion :skip:

Stew-O: Xander yanks Viz up to his feet and quickly hits him with an uppercut, a fierce blow from the Champion! He strikes again and again, and again! RAPID-FIRE UPPERCUTS FROM THE DEFENDING WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION AS HE ROCKS VIZ REPEATEDLY AND HAS VIZ STUMBLING BACK-

Flannery McCoy: VIZ HOOKS THE ARM AND TWISTS AROUND XANDER TO GET THE OTHER ARM, COUNTERING BY TAKING HIM DOWN INTO A BACKSLIDE PIN!!!

Referee: ONE!

Jake Mercer: Xander manages to turn himself out of it and get his shoulders off the mat, only to be met with a low-angled leaping forearm smash to the face! Viz hurls himself at the kneeling Champion and Xander is down on the mat! Xander turns over and there’s a kick to the head that completely puts Xander back down but for only just a moment, as he tries to push himself back up but Viz comes down with a knee across the back of the neck! Not only does Xander get driven face first into the mat but that’s 280 pounds coming down directly on his neck!

Stew-O: Viz isn’t giving him any chance to rest off what just happened and certainly not when a World Championship is at stake! The Visual Prophet follows up by grabbing Xander AND THEN SENDING HIM BETWEEN THE TOP AND MIDDLE ROPES, THROWING HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THAT GLASS WALL! XANDER’S HEAD PUTS A CRACK IN THE PANE AND HE STUMBLES AWAY CLUTCHING HIS HEAD AND VIZ DROPS HIM WITH SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE! VIZ REELS BACK AND PRACTICALLY TAKES HIS HEAD OFF WITH THAT ONE AS HE CONNECTS WITH IT!

Flannery McCoy: But it’s still not enough to keep Xander down as he’s already trying to make his way back up- VIZ LAUNCHES HIM WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! XANDER GETS THROWN TO THE MAT AND VIZ DROPS HIM ON THE BACK OF HIS NECK AND HEAD! VIZ IS IN FULL CONTROL RIGHT NOW! And with Xander down, Viz goes to retrieve a weapon, going right for the kendo stick that’s wrapped in barbed wire and broken glass!

Jake Mercer: Xander has seemingly got no idea as he begins getting himself up off the mat, AND BIG VIZ CRACKS THAT KENDO STICK RIGHT OVER HIS BACK! XANDER SHOUTS OUT IN PAIN AND VIZ SWINGS ONCE AGAIN, THIS TIME CATCHING XANDER RIGHT ON THE ARM! AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! EARNING SCREAMS FROM XANDER AS EACH OF THOSE SHOTS FROM THE KENDO STICK BREAK AND TEAR AWAY AT THE SKIN OF CHAMPION! AND SEEING XANDER IN PAIN HAS THIS HOUSE OF GLASS CROWD INSANELY EXCITED!

Stew-O: VIZ SWINGS THE MODIFIED WEAPON AT XANDER’S TORSO BEFORE A WICKED STRIKE GETS XANDER IN THE FACE! XANDER GOES DOWN AND VIZ DRIVES HIS FOOT DOWN ON THE STOMACH, XANDER INSTINCTIVELY GOING TO TRY TO PRY VIZ’S FOOT OFF OF HIM BUT VIZ DRIVES THE END OF THE KENDO STICK RIGHT INTO XANDER’S MOUTH AS XANDER WAS SHOUTING?!

Flannery McCoy: AND NOW HE USES THE SIDE OF HIS BOOT BY DRAGGING IT DOWN THE KENDO STICK TO PULL GLASS OFF THE KENDO STICK, CAUSING IT TO FALL RIGHT INTO XANDER’S MOUTH! XANDER’S FLAILING WILDLY AS HE REALIZES WHAT’S HAPPENING AND EVEN TRIES TO GRAB TO KENDO STICK TO GET IT OUT HIS MOUTH!!! Viz pulls the kendo stick away after letting the Champion struggle and Xander immediately turns over onto his hands and knees, coughing up not only blood but now glass as well :lupe:!!

Jake Mercer: To be someone who clearly eats damn near anything, I’m thinking glass ISN’T a part of his diet plan; he’s clearly watching his weight to keep himself in the running for Best Body!

Stew-O: I’m sure that’s the last thing on his mind, when shards of glass could be cutting away at the inside of his throat or even his trachea! The ring official even looks concerned as the lights catch specks of glass shining as they’re covered in red, still being spit out!

Flannery McCoy: And Viz shows no remorse as he kicks Xander in the ribs to completely flip him over on his back! Another shot from the kendo stick and that sends the World Heavyweight Champ rolling away for reprieve, ending up at the bottom rope AND VIZ CONNECTS WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD AND THAT CAUSES XANDER’S HEAD TO HIT THE GLASS WALL AGAIN! VIZ GRABS HIM BY THE ARM AND PULLS HIM AWAY FOR THE COVER!

Referee: OOONNNEEE!!

Referee: TTTWWWOOO!!!

Stew-O: There’s the kick out as Xander gets the shoulder up off the mat! We’ve come to know what that title means to Xander and he’s not about to let it go so easily!

Flannery McCoy: There was never going to be anything easy about the possibility of swallowing that glass, and the barbed wire scratching at the inside of his mouth surely didn’t help! Viz brings Xander to his feet and tosses him to the nearby corner where Xander goes to pull himself up with the ropes, Viz retrieving the kendo stick from off of the mat and goes to charge with the kendo stick raised! But Xander pulls himself out of the way and Viz strikes the top turnbuckle instead!

Jake Mercer: Viz though finds himself getting whirled around and here comes Xander unloading with kicks and stomps in the corner! Xander is laying into Viz and doing all he can to put a halt to all the momentum Viz gained in this match! The World Heavyweight Champion comes in with a knee to the gut and now a forearm to the face, before launching Viz out the corner with an exploder suplex! Viz turns over looking for the kendo stick but Xander comes dropping down at his head with a dropkick that distances Viz from the lethal weapon he’d used to go after Xander with!

Stew-O: And now Xander’s got the kendo stick upon getting to his feet, and Viz is getting up across the mat! Viz tries to get the jump on Xander but Xander catches him across the abdomen with the weapon and the sound of that kendo stick shot landing on Viz was just sickening! Viz doubles over and Xander gets around behind him with the kendo stick, bringing it around the challenger’s neck! The barbed wire and glass cut into Viz’s skin as he’s strangled by Xander and Viz is desperately reaching out trying to find a way to shake Xander off of him!

Flannery McCoy: He tries to make it to the ropes but Xander stomps on the back of the knee and that brings Viz down, but Viz is still trying to fight his way out! Viz tries to get back to his feet- XANDER POSITIONED ONE END OF THE KENDO STICK AT VIZ’S FOREHEAD BEFORE SENDING HIM FORWARD INTO THE GLASS WALL WITH THE OTHER END DIRECTED AT IT, AND VIZ INSTANTLY SHOOTS BACK TO THE MAT AS HE HAS IT DRIVEN INTO HIS FOREHEAD!

Jake Mercer: Get up, king :mjcry:!!!

Stew-O: Viz covers up his forehead while writhing on the mat and Xander makes his way over, grabbing Viz by the head and holding him in place as he slams his knee right into his face! The Champion connects with another and he’s looking to intensify the damage done from just moments ago, going after Viz with yet another knee strike with such force that it pops Viz right out of his own grasp!

Flannery McCoy: Xander isn’t intending to let up just yet as he grabs Viz, pulling him into a front headlock with accompanied strikes to head and face again! AND NOW XANDER TAKES VIZ AND SLAMS HIS HEAD OFF THE GLASS WALL! THE CRACKS IN THE WALL SPIDER-WEB FROM THE POINT OF IMPACT AND VIZ STUMBLES AWAY FROM THE WALL, RIGHT INTO A FORCEFUL HEADBUTT FROM THE CHAMPION! XANDER CATCHES HIM RIGHT ON HIS BLOODY FOREHEAD, FOCUSING HIS ATTACK THERE BEFORE BOOTING VIZ IN THE GUT AND DROPPING HIM WITH A SWINGING NECKBREAKER!!! XANDER WITH THE PIN ON VIZ!!!

Referee: OOONNNEEE!!!

Referee: TTTWWWOOOO!!!

Jake Mercer: Viz kicks out :blessed:!!!

Stew-O: And that’s just as fine with Xander as he’s already looking up at the choice of weapons they’ve got at their disposal!

Flannery McCoy: Xander knows that Viz isn’t in any kind of rush after that succession of moves targeting the skull and that’s why after a stomp to the head, and disrespectfully walking over Viz that Xander goes right for the 2×4! It’s got nails coming through the other side of it, appearing to be coming through just barely enough where they’d still be able to pierce the skin and still do a whole lot of damage!

Jake Mercer: WE’VE GOT TO STOP HIS ASS!

Stew-O: Then you go and do it :mjpls:

Jake Mercer: Very much like a cac to go and leave a brother to fend for himself :mjpls:

Stew-O: :skip:

Flannery McCoy: Xander comes back down to the mat and Viz has slowly pulled himself up with the use of the ropes after rolling his way over, none the wiser to Xander coming over while he’s wielding that insane weapon! Whose idea was this?!

Stew-O: XANDER SLAMS THE 2×4 AT VIZ’S BACK AND THAT IMMEDIATELY GETS A HORRIFYING SCREAM FROM THE FORMER HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!! THERE’S NOTHING PROTECTING VIZ FROM TAKING THAT FULL IMPACT OR STOPPING THOSE NAILS FROM STABBING THROUGH THE SKIN! XANDER PULLS THE WEAPON AWAY AND SWINGS INTO VIZ’S BACK AGAIN, GETTING ANOTHER AGONIZING SHOUT FROM VIZ!!

Jake Mercer: :mjcry:!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Xander gets the weapon from out of Viz’s back and blood has quickly begun to seep from where the nails were driven into! Viz tries to create some distance but nearly as fast as he needs to, stumbling away while Xander’s still got him in his sights- XANDER AIMS TO CONNECT WITH THE 2×4 ONCE AGAIN AND VIZ TRIES TO TURN AWAY, BUT IT MERELY CONNECTS WITH HIS ARM! VIZ HAS THE 2×4 STUCK ON HIS BICEP AND THE LOOK ON HIS FACE SAYS IT ALL – THAT PAIN IS EXCRUCIATING AND NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!!

Jake Mercer: Xander’s got a sick smirk on his face seeing Viz in such pain and while he’s following after Viz, he’s merely watching on and he’s going to force Viz to rip that 2×4 off of himself if he wants to get those nails from out of his skin! Viz makes it to the corner and latches his hand onto the weapon that’s lodged on his arm; it clearly pains him to do so but Viz grips it again and starts pulling it away-

Stew-O: XANDER HITS THE 2×4 WITH A SUPERKICK AND THAT JUST PUSHES IT BACK INTO VIZ’S ARM! THOSE NAILS CUT EVEN DEEPER WITH XANDER FORCING IT ON HIS ARM LIKE THAT AND YOU CAN SEE THE RIVULETS OF BLOOD STARTING TO STREAM DOWN VIZ’S ARM!

Flannery McCoy: Viz can’t even turn away like he wants to because Xander is practically a shark smelling blood in the water, and he’s beating Viz down in the corner! Viz tries to get a hand up with the other arm but it’s useless; he might as well be trying to fend off Xander with one arm tied behind his back because Xander will absolutely not be deterred in the moment!

Jake Mercer: The Visual Prophet gets forced into a seated position against the turnbuckles from the barrage of strikes that Xander has unleashed upon him! Viz tries to cover up but Xander just goes from kicking to dropping down over him and clubbing him over the head, as he knows that he’s got Viz literally and figuratively on the ropes here! Xander backs away and Viz raises his head up- A RUNNING FACEWASH BY XANDER AND THE BOTTOM OF HIS BOOT CRASHES AGAINST VIZ’S FACE! Xander peels him out the corner and drags him to his knees with the brutalized arm held out, AS HE CONNECTS WITH A DDT THAT SPIKES VIZ’S HEAD INTO THE CANVAS!

Stew-O: AND HE USES HIS KNEES TO PUSH VIZ OVER ONTO HIS BACK JUST AFTER, AND WE KNOW NOW WHY HE HELD ONTO THE ARM WITH THE 2×4 CLINGING ON IT AS HE HOLDS IT ON THE MAT AND KICKS UP TO COME DOWN WITH A DOUBLE KNEE DROP TO IT!!! XANDER WITH A SECOND KNEE DROP AND NOW A THIRD, WHICH ENDS UP KNOCKING THE 2×4 LOOSE AND NOW HE MAKES THE COVER ON VIZ!!!

Referee: OOONNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTHHH-

Flannery McCoy: Viz actually kicks out?!?! He’s insane! To keep going with that mangled arm like that?!

Jake Mercer: He’s so valiant, so strong – the kids of VPLA are so lucky to have him as such an inspiration 😭

Stew-O: I don’t know how lucky he’ll be here though if Xander continues to go after the arm like that the longer that this gets dragged out! I’m actually concerned for what other damage could be done to him if Xander gets any more ideas!

Flannery McCoy: Xander gets up shouting at Viz that he should’ve given up just now when he had the chance, and I certainly wouldn’t have blamed him if he did; that was disgusting to watch! Xander stomps down on his arm and Viz tries to pull it toward himself but Xander rips it away and out of Viz’s protection before falling back into a cross armbreaker!

Stew-O: No! Viz turns into it and he’s able to lock his hands together to keep Xander from getting the full extension! Xander is pulling on the bloody arm with everything that he’s got but Viz refuses to let himself get trapped like that! Xander’s trying to fight through Viz’s resilience here-

Jake Mercer: VIZ FORCES XANDER ONTO HIS BACK AS XANDER CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE! THE SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!

Referee: OOONNNEEE!!!

Referee: TTTWWWOOO!!!

Jake Mercer: But Xander shoots his legs out on the kick out to force himself off the mat and he’s still holding the arm, and Viz still refuses to give in! Xander tries kicking the heel of his boot into Viz hoping it’ll cause a moment of weakness in Viz- but Viz is turning over onto his knees! Viz slowly getting onto his feet while Xander’s still got the arm!

Flannery McCoy: And what power from Viz to try to lift Xander off the mat like this! Xander hangs on as he gets pulled off the canvas- A ONE-ARM POWERBOMB BY VIZ BUT XANDER STILL HANGS ON AS VIZ REMAINS ON HIS FEET! Viz just can’t seem to shake him off! But here he goes again and I’m just amazed that he’d try this in his condition- VIZ GETS XANDER ALL THE WAY UP AND VIZ THROWS EVEN HIMSELF DOWN INTO NOW AND THAT FREES UP THE ARM FROM XANDER’S HOLD!!!

Stew-O: Xander’s just a bit faster to move here as Viz is still having to get his feet under him, and Xander makes his way over just to get a gut punch! Viz keeps the bloody arm at his side while throwing up another strike to the stomach, Xander reaching down to grab Viz and there’s a slap to the face of the Champion! Blood flies through the air from the mouth of Xander and he turns back to Viz- THE VISUAL PROPHET SHOOTS UP OFF THE MAT WITH A TIMELY LARIAT!! XANDER GETS TAKEN DOWN BY A ONE-ARMED VIZ AND THE CROWD IS DOING EVERYTHING TO WILL VIZ INTO CONTINUING TO PUT UP A FIGHT!!!

Jake Mercer: This is the same man who got hung up by DEDEDE on a meat hook in this same exact match and went on to win; OF COURSE THEY KNOW HE CAN FIGHT!! 😤

Flannery McCoy: That definitely says a lot about Viz, but to take on Xander Payne when Xander is operating at this level could be something else; Xander’s proven capable of shifting plenty of matches in his favor when it may be least expected!

Stew-O: But he’s significantly hurt Viz already, can Viz find it in himself to pull off a second World Title win?! Or will this be another match where Xander capitalizes to keep his reign going?!

Flannery McCoy: Viz gets up onto his knees, rallying the crowd as Xander is pulling himself together to get up and Viz beats him to his feet, hurrying over to club him over the head as he was coming up! Xander forced back down to a knee and Viz rams his fist into his face, blasting away until Xander finds the wherewithal to combat roll under it and behind Viz, a sneaky maneuver by the Champion as he gets to his feet-

Jake Mercer: BUT NOT SO FAST AS VIZ GETS HIM WITH A BACK KICK! DON’T EVER UNDERESTIMATE VIZ’S RING AWARENESS! Xander doubled over after that kick to the gut, NOW A SIDE KICK AS VIZ STARTS TO TURN INTO FACING HIM! NOW A BICYCLE KICK FROM THE FORMER KING OF ELITE WINNER!!! XANDER GETS KNOCKED TO THE MAT BUT HURRIES TO GET UP, ANOTHER KICK BY VIZ AND NOW THIS TIME HE HOOKS XANDER UP FOR A SUPLEX! XANDER CRASHES TO THE MAT!

Stew-O: HE’S UP AGAIN THOUGH AND CHARGES AT VIZ, WHO CATCHES HIM WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! VIZ KEEPING HOLD OF HIM AS HE ROLLS THROUGH UP ONTO HIS FEET BRINGING XANDER WITH HIM, AND NOW HE SLAMS THE CHAMPION DOWN WITH A BELLY TO BELLY!!! Xander rolls to the corner with Viz in pursuit, Xander getting up to his feet in time to block a strike from Viz and he doubles him over into a front headlock while climbing up onto the middle turnbuckle from where he kicks off into a tornado DDT- THE VISUAL PROPHET SHOVES HIM AWAY AND XANDER NEARLY FALLS OVER AS HE LANDS ON HIS FEET! A RUNNING SHOULDER BLOCK TAKES HIM DOWN THOUGH AND VIZ BRINGS HIM OFF THE MAT, HOISTING HIM OVER HIS SHOULDER BEFORE TAKING OFF INTO THE GLASS WALL WHERE HE USES XANDER LIKE A BATTERING RAM!!!

Flannery McCoy: XANDER GETS TAKEN FOR A RIDE, GOING HEAD FIRST INTO THE GLASS AND PIECES OF IT CRACK AND FALL TO THE MAT BELOW! Xander looks barely conscious as he’s held over Viz’s shoulder still, AND NOW VIZ RUNS HIM HEAD FIRST INTO THE NEXT SIDE OF THE ENCLOSURE! VIZ HOLDS HIM IN PLACE AND TURNS TO GO INTO THE THIRD SIDE, AREAS OF THIS GLASS WALLZ STRUCTURE SHOWING WHERE XANDER’S HAD HIS HEAD SENT INTO IT! Viz looks to the fourth and final side of the structure and charges forward-

Jake Mercer: XANDER GETS HIMSELF DOWN AND VIZ GETS SHOVED INTO THE ROPES! VIZ RUNNING OFF THE REBOUND BACK TO XANDER, THE CHAMPION LOOKING FOR A URANAGE- BLOCKED! VIZ SHOOTS HIM WITH ELBOWS TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD BEFORE SLIPPING OUT XANDER’S GRASP- “VDT”!!! THE REVERSE STO INTO THE SPINNING DDT TO WIN THE TITLE AS HE MAKES THE COVER!!!

Referee: OOONNNEEE!!!

Referee: TTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTHHHHRRRR-

Stew-O: A kick out from Xander! But that camera shot just now shows how the blood has started to seep from the top of Xander’s head and down his forehead, a result of being rammed head first into the glass panes!

Jake Mercer: Payne can’t handle the pain caused by these panes :wow:!!!

Flannery McCoy: Stop talking. 😐

Jake Mercer: Mixtape out soon, check my SoundCloud for other releases!

Flannery McCoy: What did I JUST say? 😐

Stew-O: Viz gets up off of Xander after the kick out and now he goes looking for another weapon to bring into this match! Viz going up while Xander’s down and he gets the trash can that’s full of makeshift weaponry, and bringing it down with him, he dumps the contents out on the mat! I believe I see a lead pipe, a fire extinguisher, light tubes, a black bag that has god knows what I’m it – and this was all held up in that one garbage can?! :skip:

Flannery McCoy: With the way these two are sure to make use of most, if not all of it, they’re certainly not about to complain! Viz picks up the pipe and Xander is slow to get up, and he’s going to wish he hadn’t AS VIZ CRACKS HIM OVER THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH THAT BLUNT OBJECT! XANDER FALLS OVER GRABBING AT THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AND NOW VIZ GETS HIM RIGHT AT THE BACK OF HIS NECK!

Jake Mercer: DO IT AGAIN :blessed:!!!!

Stew-O: AND HE DOES EXACTLY THAT!! Xander makes it across the ring, badly hurt as he crawls to the ropes where Viz pulls his head back and throws him throat first into the middle rope! Xander’s head springs back into Viz’s awaiting hands and he sends him head first over the bottom rope into the wall! Xander gets whipped backward to the mat, ending up rolling over AND VIZ CONNECTS WITH A KICK TO THE FACE! BLOOD FROM XANDER’S MOUTH AND NOW A BUSTED NOSE SPLATTERS THE CANVAS BEFOFE VIZ MAKES THE PIN!!!

Referee: OOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTTTHHHHHHRRRRREEE-

Flannery McCoy: Xander kicks out again, but I’m genuinely worried for both their safety knowing that this won’t be the end of the bloodshed!

Stew-O: Viz gets Xander up and he’s barely up to keep himself standing, Viz being aware of that as he throws a huge right hand at Xander and Xander stumbles away after getting absolutely clobbered! Xander leaning into the ropes as Viz comes up from behind and hits him over the back, sending Xander forward before striking again and Xander falls into the turnbuckles upon making it to the corner! Xander gets clobbered with right hands from the former World Champion before he lifts Xander up onto the top turnbuckle, following up after him with intentions for something big!

Flannery McCoy: Viz has Xander perched up right where he wants him and now Viz gets to the top rope, where he tries to lift Xander up into standing with him but Xander isn’t budging! Viz is clearly trying to force Xander up into position here and yet Xander is holding onto the top rope to keep himself from going anywhere! Xander starts punching at Viz from below, connecting with hits to the midsection-

Jake Mercer: XANDER SLIPS DOWN TO HIS FEET ON THE MAT AND YANKS VIZ’S LEGS OUT FROM UNDER HIM, DROPPING HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! VIZ’S HEAD AND FACE BOUNCE OFF THE TURNBUCKLE AND VIZ TURNS AROUND- “OVERDOSE”!!! THE DISCUS PALM STRIKE CONNECTS AGAINST THE NOW BLOODY NOSE OF THE VISUAL PROPHET! A PUSH KICK TO THE GUT SENDS VIZ STUMBLING BACKWARD UNTIL HE FALLS BACKWARD INTO THE CORNER, HOLDING HIS NOSE AS HE TRIES TO TEND TO IT!

Stew-O: “HEATWAVE”!!! XANDER LAUNCHES HIMSELF FORWARD INTO A CANNONBALL STYLED ATTACK AND HE THROWS ALL OF HIS WEIGHT AT VIZ! VIZ LOOKS TO BE OUT OF IT AS XANDER QUICKLY CAPITALIZED AND TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE MOMENT!

Flannery McCoy: Xander gets himself up and surveys the weapons that he’s got at his disposal, then looks up and he goes up for the crowbar! But he doesn’t stop there as heads over for the nearby sledgehammer as well! Xander lets the weapons fall to the mat while Viz is still down in the corner and he selects the sledgehammer, taking it up into his possession and stalking over to the corner where he uses the top of it to slam into Viz’s stomach!

Stew-O: Viz has taken a beating in this match himself and Xander looks to continue it, driving the sledgehammer down on Viz once again! Viz turns over and understandably is curled up in pain, his arms around his midsection after the consecutive hits he just took from that sledgehammer in Xander’s grasp! But Xander is ruthless as he looks to continue the assault, yanking the bloody arm back out from under Viz and Xander stands on his hand, having Viz at his mercy!

Jake Mercer: He’s going to break Viz’s hand just standing on it; this isn’t fair :noah:!!!

Flannery McCoy: Xander has more intentions for this than just standing on that hand, surely, AND I’M UNFORTUNATELY RIGHT AS THE SICKENING SIGHT OF HIM SLAMMING THE SLEDGEHAMMER DOWN ON THE WOUNDS FROM WHERE THAT 2×4 HAD BEEN STUCK ON HIS ARM SPLATTERS BLOOD ON THE MAT! VIZ IS WRITHING ON THE MAT TRYING TO GET HIS ARM FREE BUT XANDER IS STILL STANDING ON THE HAND!

Stew-O: XANDER COMES DOWN AGAIN WITH THE SLEDGEHAMMER AND ONLY AFTER THAT SECOND SHOT DOES HE FINALLY COME OFF THE HAND, VIZ INSTANTLY CRADLING THE ARM CLOSE WHILE HE’S STILL DOWN ON THE MAT!

Flannery McCoy: Xander has sought to be cruel, brutal, and barbaric right out the gate when this is his biggest World Heavyweight Championship defense yet, and I’d say that he’s checking all the boxes so far when it comes to that agenda! He’s holding nothing back and he’s seemingly as bloodthirsty as ever, as he looks to send a message to everyone with this match tonight!

Jake Mercer: Viz somehow has it in him to make it to the corner and use the ropes there to get himself up, but he’s clearly hurt as he continues to favor that disgusting looking arm. Viz gets struck on the chin as Xander shoots the sledgehammer up and Viz falls back into the turnbuckles, BEFORE XANDER DROPS THE WEAPON AND CONNECTS WITH A STEP-UP KNEE STRIKE! XANDER YANKING VIZ FROM THE CORNER NOW!

Stew-O: “RIPTIDE”!!! THE TWISTING BRAINBUSTER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! VIZ GETS DROPPED ON HIS HEAD AND XANDER TURNS OVER INTO THE COVER!!!

Referee: OOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHRRRREEEE!!!!

Jake Mercer: :blessed:!!!!

Flannery McCoy: VIZ KICKS OUT!!!

Stew-O: Xander sits up looking frustrated, blood from his own injuries sustained throughout this match painting his face making him just look that much more maddening! Xander’s shaking his head, he’s clearly had enough of this now as he gets his hands on Viz and drags him up to his feet, talking trash to the challenger and punching him in the face before he goes to whip him across the ring!

Flannery McCoy: Viz comes running off the ropes! POP-UP- VIZ GOES OVER XANDER INTO A SUNSET FLIP PIN!!

Referee: OOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHHHRRREEE!!!

Jake Mercer: XANDER KICKS OUT BY TURNING OVER BUT THERE’S A KICK STRAIGHT TO THE FACE FROM VIZ WHILE STILL ON THE MAT AS XANDER HAD MOVED ONTO HIS KNEES!

Stew-O: Xander turns over and tries to crawl away, but Viz is already moving and shifting forward to get Xander’s leg! “VIZ-LOCK”! VIZ HAS THE ANKLE ON TO KEEP XANDER FROM GOING ANYWHERE OR TRYING TO CREATE ANY DISTANCE! VIZ KNOWS HE’S TAKEN PLENTY OF DAMAGE AT XANDER’S HANDS AND KEEPING HIM CLOSE RIGHT NOW WOULD FURTHER DELAY HAVING TAKE ANYMORE! THE REFEREE DOWN BY XANDER ASKING IF HE WANTS TO SUBMIT BUT XANDER IS MERELY SCREAMING IN PAIN!!

Flannery McCoy: Xander doesn’t even want to acknowledge the ring official’s existence right now, knowing he’s in trouble but trying to find some way out of this! Xander is trying to claw his way to the ropes, there’s no rope break but who knows what’s ever going through Xander’s mind in a predicament like this! Viz trying to hold onto Xander’s ankle as he’s got it twisted against his chest, making it that much more difficult for Xander to try to turn his leg out of it!

Jake Mercer: Xander makes it to the bottom rope and reaches up for the middle rope, trying to bring himself up and he manages to make it onto his knee of the leg that’s not held by Viz, and from there manages to get a hold of the top rope! But Viz is still holding on and he’s gotten himself up as well, having Xander on one leg and there’s just no getting Viz off Xander!

Stew-O: YOU’VE SPOKEN TOO SOON AS XANDER TURNS AWAY FROM THE ROPES AND FLIPS FORWARD, SENDING VIZ ROLLING AND ULTIMATELY RELEASING THE SUBMISSION! Viz getting up to his feet while Xander is still down on the mat and he makes his way over- XANDER JUST STABBED VIZ WITH A PIECE OF GLASS FROM THE BROKEN WALL!!!

Flannery McCoy: THAT’S A HUGE PIECE OF GLASS FOR VIZ TO HAVE BEEN STABBED IN THE THIGH WITH, AND THE SHOCK OF SUDDEN HAS TAKEN OVER AS HE’S STUNNED ON THE SPOT! VIZ IS JUST AS SURPRISED AS THE REST OF US, AND XANDER TAKES ADVANTAGE BY GETTING UP AND KICKING AT THE GLASS, SENDING IT DEEPER CAUSING VIZ TO FALL OVER AS HE WAS CLUTCHING AT HIS LEG! BUT NOW HE’S GOT VIZ BACK UP!

Stew-O: “LAST SEDATION”!!! THE POP-UP POWERBOMB AFTER SENDING THE VISUAL PROPHET INTO THE ROPES AND VIZ GETS SLAMMED TO THE MAT! XANDER FALLING FORWARD INTO THE COVER!!!

Referee: OOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHHRRRREEEEE!!!!

Jake Mercer: BIG VIZ KICKS THE HELL OUT!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Xander Payne just rolled off of Viz and sat up to look at the referee looking for confirmation, he was sure he just had it there! Xander is furious and he’s arguing with the ring official about the count, yelling that that had to have been a full three from the referee but he’s being assured that Viz got his shoulder up in time!

Stew-O: Xander runs his fingers through his bloody hair after repeatedly shoving the referee for this match and then turns his attention back to Viz, storming back over to the down competitor before he starts unloading on him with a series of vicious stomps! Viz just barely conscious enough to try to cover up and turn himself over, but Xander just stomps down on where he’d gone after Viz’s back earlier in the match!

Jake Mercer: Viz finds himself getting picked up and then thrown across the mat, Xander telling him that he should’ve just stayed down and quit while he had the opportunity! Viz struggles to pick himself up as Xander stalks over, kicking him in the ribs and now Viz ends up rolling to the ropes, arm slung across his ribs after that wicked kick! Xander rushes up and gets his foot on The Visual Prophet’s neck, choking him as holds onto the top rope for leverage and Viz is stuck in a bad spot!

Stew-O: Xander backs off after feeling that he’s held Viz down long enough and continues to talk trash just like he had been all throughout that choke, and now he’s shouting at Viz to get up! Viz holding the ropes on his way up to his feet and now Xander comes charging-

Flannery McCoy: THAT CROWBAR TO THE FACE JUST KNOCKED XANDER RIGHT THE HELL AWAY FROM VIZ! XANDER LOOKS LIKE HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT THE HECK JUST HIT HIM, BUT VIZ PROVES HIMSELF TO BE RESOURCEFUL AS HE CAUGHT XANDER UNEXPECTEDLY! Xander is somehow still on his feet after that hit to the head BUT VIZ COMES SWINGING AFTER PULLING THAT GLASS OUT OF HIS LEG AND HE JUST SPLIT THE BACK OF XANDER’S HEAD OPEN WITH THE CROWBAR!!

Jake Mercer: Xander is down, barely moving as he’s got his hand pressed to the back of his head and Viz drops the crowbar, opting for the 2×4 that’d been used on him earlier! He comes up behind a sluggishly crawling Xander, and Viz just tore through the back of Xander’s shirt! VIZ SLAMS THE 2×4 INTO XANDER’S BACK AND XANDER’S SHOUTS OF MISERY CAN BE HEARD ALL THROUGHOUT THE VENUE! BUT VIZ DOESN’T STOP THERE AS HE RAKES IT DOWN XANDER’S BACK, TEARING THE SKIN!!

Stew-O: Xander is yelling on the mat, grabbing at his back as he tries to get away and he’s knowing for himself what that feels like after all he’d done to Viz with it! Xander finding it within himself to try to push himself up knowing he’s got his Championship to defend-

Flannery McCoy: XANDER GETS BLINDED WITH THE CONTENTS OF THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER! XANDER GETS SPRAYED IN THE EYES AS HE STUMBLES UP TO HIS FEET, NOT KNOWING WHERE TO GO!

Jake Mercer: “KISS TO THE HEAD”!!! THE BULLHAMMER ELBOW STRIKE CONNECTS AND XANDER IS FLOORED!! VIZ GOES DOWN INTO THE COVER ON XANDER!!!

Referee: OOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTTTHHHHHRRRREEEEEE!!!

Stew-O: XANDER PAYNE GETS HIS SHOULDER UP!!!

Flannery McCoy: Viz is trying to keep himself calm and collected under these high pressure stakes, but he’s definitely having a moment now to think about more of what it’s going to take to put Xander away! Xander’s been a tough opponent for everyone he’s faced and tonight was never going to be any different, when Xander knows he’s shown how determined and driven he can be under circumstances like this!

Jake Mercer: Okay but he didn’t need to do that tonight :noah:!!

Stew-O: Viz gets up to his feet and gets the crowbar once again and now the fire extinguisher in the other hand, kicking Xander over onto his stomach before laying the extinguisher in front of his face and now placing one end of the crowbar in Xander’s mouth while the other is raised up against the fire extinguisher :lupe:

Jake Mercer: :lupe:

Flannery McCoy: :lupe:

Stew-O: VIZ GETS A RUNNING START AND HE LEAPS UP TO STOMP ON THE RAISED END OF THE CROWBAR!

Jake Mercer: XANDER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY IN TIME AND VIZ REALIZES HE MISSED THE MARK! Viz turns around to find Xander still on the mat and limps his way over, blood coming down his leg but he gets his hands on Xander nonetheless to bring him up! Viz throwing consecutive punches with the last one sending Xander falling backward into the ropes and Xander comes springing forward off of them and Viz misses the clothesline-

Flannery McCoy: VIZ TURNS AROUND INTO A LIGHT TUBE GETTING SMASHED IN HIS EYES! Viz tries clearing up his vision but Xander follows up with a stunner that has Viz stumbling back, hardly able to keep himself up and Xander follows up with a spinning jackhammer! Xander beating down on Viz, both of them exhausted and worn and badly hurt, and Xander’s still spitting up blood!

Stew-O: Xander finds the black bag, opening it up and spilling what has to be hundreds of thumbtacks onto the mat! Xander wears no expression on his face as he watches the silver pieces hit and bounce around at his feet, Viz still down from where Xander left him! The World Heavyweight Champion makes his way over to Viz and drags him unceremoniously across the mat into the thumbtacks, dragging Viz up to his feet and trying to set up for the Payne Killer but Viz gets his arms around Xander!

Jake Mercer: Xander starts coming down on Viz’s back with vicious blows, trying to weaken him down further but Viz still isn’t budging when Xander goes for the lift! VIZ NOW FLIPPING XANDER OVERHEAD BUT XANDER LANDS ON HIS FEET! VIZ WHIRLING AROUND FOR A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE JUST AS XANDER LEAPS AT HIM FOR A LARIAT AND THEY TAKE EACH OTHER DOWN INTO THE THUMBTACKS!!!

Flannery McCoy: XANDER AND VIZ ROLL THEIR WAY OUT OF THE THUMBTACKS SCREAMING AND WITH PLENTY OF THEM STUCK IN THEIR BACKS! I CAN’T EVEN BEGIN TO IMAGINE HOW THAT MUST FEEL WHEN I CAN BARELY STAND TO WATCH IT HERE ON THE MONITORS!

Stew-O: Xander’s got a bloody head and mouth, blood going down over the thumbtacks now in his back and flowing under the tattered pieces of his shirt that Viz ripped up, and Viz looks like he’s taken about as much abuse as any one person could stand but somehow he’s still pushing through! The two of them are slowly moving to get up on opposite sides of the ring, both of them looking worn out from the hell they’ve given each other!

Jake Mercer: And now they go to meet in the middle of the ring, throwing punches at one another all aimed at the head and face! I’d be shocked if one of them wasn’t somehow concussed by the end of all this! Xander reeling back and lobbing a huge right hand at Viz that nearly takes him down but Viz comes swinging right back! Viz fakes a punch before quickly following up with a kick to the gut and Xander can’t even keep himself upright, dropping to a knee and Viz goes to grab him BUT XANDER SWINGS THE BROKEN LIGHT TUBE AT VIZ ONLY FOR VIZ TO JUMP BACK! Xander getting up to his feet with the light tube in hand and Xander lunges for Viz-

Flannery McCoy: A DROP TOE HOLD INTO THE GARBAGE CAN! XANDER FALLS FACE FIRST INTO THE GARBAGE CAN AND HE’S JUST LEFT A MASSIVE INDENT ON IN THAT METAL CAN! Viz grabs Xander from off the mat and tries to lift him up onto his shoulders, looking to get a running start but Xander starts blasting elbows into the side of his head! Xander fighting his way down just as Viz was about to leap into the Prophet Driver!

Stew-O: Xander ends up dropping down behind Viz and he kicks the back of the leg, he’s gone there before and now he kicks Viz from behind to send him barrelling forward until Viz can’t keep himself up and collapses on the mat! Viz working to get himself up as Xander comes over and drags him up, whipping him across the ring! VIZ COMING BACK INTO THE POP-UP!

Jake Mercer: VIZ STABS XANDER IN THE SHOULDER WITH A PIECE OF GLASS ON THE WAY DOWN! XANDER SHOUTS AND STEPS BACK AFTER THE COUNTER, VIZ BEATING HIM INTO THE CORNER UNTIL HE’S CLIMBED UP OVER HIM ON THE TURNBUCKLES AND NOW HE’S PUNCHING DOWN ON XANDER’S BLOODY FACE! VIZ POUNDING HIS FIST AT XANDER’S FACIAL FEATURES LIKE HE’S TRYING TO LEAVE HIM UNRECOGNIZABLE!

Flannery McCoy: BUT XANDER GETS HIS ARMS AROUND VIZ’S LEGS AND LIFTS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS! XANDER STEPPING OUT THE CORNER WITH VIZ UP IN THE AIR!

Stew-O: VIZ COUNTERS THE POWERBOMB INTO A HURRICANRANA!! Xander goes rolling across the mat, through the wreckage of multiple weapons but ends up near the ropes, using them to try to beat Viz to the punch even though they’re both slow to move!

Jake Mercer: Xander up on his feet goes to get his hands on Viz as he’s kneeling, grabbing his shoulder to bring him up and turn him around-

Stew-O: A LEFT-HANDED “IKE TURNER SPECIAL”!!! THE SPINNING BACK FIST AND HE CONTINUES THAT SPINNING MOMENTUM AS NOW COMING UP FROM THE RIGHT HAND COMES THE CROWBAR!!! XANDER GETS KNOCKED TO THE MAT AND HE’S DOWN! HE’S DOWN! VIZ HAS GOT XANDER DOWN!!! Xander is down trying to somehow will his way through this, fingers brushing at the mat as he’s trying to will himself to get up or crawl!

Flannery McCoy: BUT VIZ JUST LAUNCHED THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER RIGHT AT THE BACK OF XANDER’S HEAD! BLOOD FROM XANDER’S HEAD IS ALL OVER THE BOTTOM OF THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER AND NOW HE GETS TURNED OVER, REVEALING AN EVEN BLOODIER FACE AFTER THAT BACK FIST-CROWBAR COMBO!!

Jake Mercer: AND NOW VIZ IS GOING UP TOP! VIZ GOING TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! XANDER’S DOWN AND XANDER’S OUT!!!!

Stew-O: “BOW TO THE HEART”!!! THE DIVING ELBOW DROP CONNECTS, DRIVING ANY POSSIBLE SORT OF AIR THAT XANDER HAD LEFT IN THE TANK RIGHT OUT OF HIM! VIZ TURNING OVER AND THROWING HIMSELF ACROSS XANDER’S TORSO FOR THE COVER!!!!!

Referee: OOOONNNNEEEE!!!

Referee: TTTTWWWWWWOOOO!!!!

Referee: TTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEEEEEEE!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)’ by Jimi Hendrix begins to play and the crowd is up on their feet, cheering as it sets in that Viz has just won the World Heavyweight Championship for the second time!)

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER, AND THE NEEEEEWWWWWWWWW EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION…. THE VISSSSSUUUUUUAAAAAALLLLLL PRRRRRROOOOOPPPPPHHHHHHHEEEETTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!

Jake Mercer: :blessed:!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE’S DONE IT! VIZ HAS WON THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP AND ENDED XANDER PAYNE’S REIGN!!!

Stew-O: This match was brutal, it was bloody, it pushed both of them to find some vicious ways to try to take each other and beat the other down until the other man just simply could not go anymore, and it’s in this Glass Wallz environment that The Visual Prophet just established himself as a two-time World Heavyweight Champion!

Flannery McCoy: Viz came in with a mission and he capitalized on it, but it certainly didn’t come without having to work for it and Xander made him do absolutely that! Xander was determined to show that there was absolutely no one who could defeat him after the string of World Champions that he defeated along the way – Charlie Marr, Impact, SOSA Henderson, Andrea Valentine – and he looked set at times to cement that as a fact here, because he just simply refused to quit!

Jake Mercer: I’ll give him SOME credit, he had Viz busted up and bloody, looking like at times he just might’ve been able to retain! He absolutely put in the work here and that can’t be denied. But he’s still fat tho.

(After taking a moment to simply lay on the mat after dragging his body off of Xander, Viz sits himself up, bloody and worn out from the battle he just went through to claim the World Heavyweight Championship that ring official is standing over him with to pass to him. Viz is helped to his feet and accepts the World Heavyweight Championship from the referee who raises his other hand up until Viz is stumbling over to the ropes. Looking out at the crowd, Viz raises the Championship up and nods his head, knowing that even with all the blood that he’s shed and has all over his skin, that all of it and the support that he’s getting has shown to all be worth it!)

Stew-O: The end of Xander Payne’s reign comes here tonight at House of Glass and while there were instances where anyone would’ve been deserving of it had they gotten the moment, I can’t think of anyone more deserving right now than The Visual Prophet after what he’s done to get to this point again!

Jake Mercer: WE GOT IT BACK :blessed:!!!

Flannery McCoy: Leading the Stadium Stampede team to a victory, constantly being the topic of conversation and what he’s done to get to his point, Viz absolutely deserves this for the work he’s put in and that’s undeniable!

Stew-O: Viz enters his second World Championship reign here tonight, and I’m sure this is just the beginning of something bigger and better to come knowing him! With The Visual Prophet back on top of Dynasty officially now as the World Heavyweight Champion, we’re sure to be in for surprises and excitement like never before!

(Viz stumbles his way out Glass Wallz with the help of officials, the Championship still raised as he looks out the sea of EAW Universe members that haven’t stopped cheering him on even for a second. As he’s directed by them on where to go so that on-site EMTs are able to tend him while Xander is helped in the ring, the scene fades out on the sight of The Visual Prophet still having the World Heavyweight Championship triumphantly raised in the air.)

(As Friday Night Dynasty continues on, the scene opens up back into the packed arena and it’s only a few moments later that “Leaving Caladan” by Hans Zimmer begins to play into the building, bringing the EAW Universe in attendance to rise to their feet for the arrival of Interwire Champion and 2022 King of Elite, Andre Walker! With the Interwire Title over his shoulder, Andre stands at the top of the stage just for a moment to look out into the crowd before starting down the ramp.)

Stephie Love: Please welcome to the ring at this time, Interwire Champion and your reigning King of Elite…. ANDRE WALKER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: For everyone else watching on at home, if you didn’t see what happened last week, then you may be wondering where Andre Walker’s personal adviser is seeing as how he typically accompanies him to the ring – but he, unfortunately, couldn’t be here tonight after The Visual Prophet put Albert Hitchman through a table right here in front of us!

Jake Mercer: “Unfortunately”. Maybe he shouldn’t have been talking shit!

Flannery McCoy: :skip:!! Albert was only shedding some more light on the topic of The Visual Prophet and the ongoings of the VPLA, as we’ve come to know that there have been some shady business dealings as it pertains to the World Heavyweight Champion and Dr. Angelo D’Angelo.

Jake Mercer: I heard those were forged documents. 🤷‍♂️

Stew-O: Nonetheless, all of that doesn’t excuse the fact that Albert Hitchman wasn’t in a position to defend himself, nor was he out here insisting on things getting physical between himself and either of those men. Angelo and The Visual Prophet made it seem like they were on their way out of the arena and wouldn’t follow through on it, that all Andre had to do was let them leave and Albert would be okay – but then Angelo called for Viz to do it anyway!

Flannery McCoy: It’s just been one thing after another as the drama surrounding The Visual Prophet continues to escalate; just a week before Pain for Pride, I can’t imagine what’ll happen next!

(Andre enters the ring after retrieving a microphone and he allows “Leaving Caladan” to fade out, all that’s left is the buzz of the audience who are all anticipating how he could address the topic of last week’s events. He finally raises the microphone and speaks, the frustration visible on his face.)

Andre Walker: What happened last week was beyond unnecessary, it was crossing a line that didn’t need to be crossed. Regardless of whatever information Albert had gotten his hands on and was looking to share with the rest of the world, what The Visual Prophet and Angelo D’Angelo did to Albert was absolutely uncalled for; there was no real point in having that happen other than to say that they did it because they could. Those aren’t the actions of a World Heavyweight Champion who wants everyone else to believe that he’s truly as commanding as he is, but they sure are the actions of a World Heavyweight Champion who knows that his days are numbered and has to find a way to get to me so that the ending to our match isn’t as predictable as others have said all due to MY success. What The Visual Prophet did to Albert wasn’t intimidating, it wasn’t sending a powerful message, so let’s go ahead and call it what it really was: pathetic.

Andre Walker: They tried to get in their jokes about me a number of weeks ago, but Viz knew he was going to need more than that, and I guess last week was looking like his best shot; sucks to be him though because he missed the target entirely. What happened last week was a mistake on their part and Viz is most definitely going to pay for it, Angelo too if even thinks of getting involved at Pain for Pride – but I’m just sick of the games. Our World Heavyweight Champion has been thinking he can go about all like he has with everyone else he’s faced, making a joke or game out everything – Pain for Pride isn’t about to be a laughing matter though when he’s leaving without a Championship and I’ve got everything that he strung people along for. Trust me when I say that not a damn thing has thrown me off and left me unfocused on my next goal, because no matter what, I haven’t forgotten what the stakes are or been unsure of what I’m going to be willing to do to make it all happen. I mean, just look at this Interwire Championship and think about all that I’ve done with it since I won it months ago at Clash of Kingdoms; it was dragged from mediocrity by my own two hands and now it’s in the main event of Pain for Pride. While a number of others before me who held this Championship settled for whatever or whoever they were given because of the expectations of this just being a mid-card title, I’ve gone above and beyond in making this one of the most prestigious Champions in the business because of who I am, what I’ve done, and more I’m absolutely going to accomplish in the future.

Andre Walker: If that wasn’t obvious, then anyone who wants to try and say otherwise is just flat-out down in the worst state of denial. What I’ve been able to do this season has left people in awe, from matches with Xander Payne, Scott Diamond, and even that match with Ronn Banks because of how I came back swinging after; anyone else would’ve folded after the fact or just went on crying. But all anyone’s gotten to do instead is witness a one-of-a-kind masterclass in success that only I could put on for everyone else to take notes and talk about so much that my rise has the World Heavyweight Champion threatened.

(Andre pauses, a small smirk forming on his face.)

Andre Walker: The part that should have everyone else concerned about is that they’re hearing all that about me and I haven’t even accomplished everything else that there’s still left for me to do. What’s left for this Interwire Championship is me breaking the record for this title and becoming the longest-reigning Champion like I did with the New Breed Title, and there’s nothing that I’m thinking of letting stop me from achieving that with this. How I do that is going to have the fact that I did it by beating Viz for the World Heavyweight Title tacked onto it. And I’m sure that there are people in the back and even plenty of you in the audience tonight, people watching at home, too, all wondering how I could say such a thing or even accomplish it knowing it’s no simple task – but what everyone else has to remember is that Andre Walker is no simple man.

Andre Walker: I’m pound-for-pound one of the best Elitists to ever step foot in Elite Answers Wrestling and that’s just undeniable. I’m one of the biggest threats that anyone on the roster could find themselves in the ring with today. The Visual Prophet is going to say differently and that’s understandable, he’s the one finally faced with a definite threat to what he’s won so it’s only expected he’d try to downplay me – but what he says and what he KNOWS are two different things. He knows that I’ve got plenty more to offer, plenty more to accomplish, plenty more great things that I’ll set the bar for. But as for what more I’ve got to say tonight…. well, I think I’d rather just say it to your face, Viz.

(Andre turns to face the stage and he motions for the World Heavyweight Champion to make his way out. The EAW Universe in attendance buzzes with excitement knowing that they could witness another drama-filled confrontation between the pair of Pain for Pride main eventers. Andre doesn’t take his focus off of the stage, awaiting the World Champion’s arrival, and just then “Back To Life” by Soul II Soul begins to play to thunderous boos! The Visual Prophet and Dr. Angelo D’Angelo casually make their way out in no rush to get to the ring, already with microphones in hand.)

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: Hold on, Viz! Andre’s down there looking a little mad! He looks real upset and I think… I think… I think it looks like he’s about to cry!

The Visual Prophet: I told you we shouldn’t have put his sugar daddy through that table!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: But it was your idea!

The Visual Prophet: You told me to do it! And now because of you, Albert – poor, poor, poor Albert – couldn’t even be here tonight to properly send his little bitch off into what’ll be one of the biggest defeats of his career- no, of all time! How’s Andre gonna cope?! How’s he gonna deal with the fact that he lost to the greatest to have ever done this shit after all of the hype that was invested in him?!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: Change his skin tone again, I guess? I don’t know, but more importantly, what I know for a fact is that…. neither of us cares!

(Angelo and The Visual Prophet laugh into their microphones as they’ve made their way down to ringside, and Andre watches on with an annoyed expression as he shakes his head. The attitudes of Viz and Angelo toward him – from jokes to their actions last week – haven’t been anything that Andre has cared for in the slightest, but it hasn’t stopped them at all from taking the approach they have with him. The pair come up the steps, entering the ring and standing across from Andre.)

The Visual Prophet: C’mon, Andre! Lighten up! Let your hair down! Relaaaaax! We’re just having fun!

Andre Walker: Putting a defenseless person through a table just to fuck with me is your idea of fun?

The Visual Prophet: Well… yeah! But let’s not act like ol’ Albert didn’t have it coming that night, Andre, because his words were always gonna come back to bite him one way or another. The guy just wouldn’t shut up, didn’t know when enough was enough – it was inevitable what was going to happen and all we did was make it happen.

Andre Walker: Inevitable? You’re ridiculous-

The Visual Prophet: If you don’t like that explanation then we can go right ahead and circle right back to how you said it best when it came to what we did to fat Albert before you even bothered to call me out to the ring tonight: “they did it because they could”. Is that not the way I’ve been showing you and everyone else how I operate? I do what I want when I want, and I know no one’s gonna have the balls to check me because I’m unlike anyone who’s ever done this. No one’s done anything to try to reprimand me for anything; I’m too much of a draw to be sidelined! I haven’t seen a single fine! They’re probably worried I’d send the whole Pain for Pride event into a tailspin if they even think about trying to make up for any of the shit that’s gone down!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: And he’ll do it, too! Try it and see what happens! We dare you!

The Visual Prophet: Point is, without me, there might as well be no Pain for Pride!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: We’d put a stop to all this shit!

The Visual Prophet: So, the fact I’m still standing here and haven’t been faced with a single repercussion from management or from you, what does that tell you about what I’m capable of? What you already know, of course, and it’s that I’m damn near untouchable whether that’s in or out of the ring, Andre. So you can come out here, act all big and bad, do whatever all this huffing and puffing nonsense is-

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: Huffing paint, maybe, because he had to be to think he’s winning at Pain for Pride.

The Visual Prophet: -but ain’t none of it gonna matter when it comes down to it at Pain for Pride, because you’re not getting the World Heavyweight Championship off of me. You should just be happy that it wasn’t you going through that table last week, bowing at my feet, and saying how grateful you are that you were able to walk into this ring under your own power. Unless, the whole reason you marched on out here and decided to go against the idea of you being a smart man was to be the next one line to go through a table; that can 100% happen! …Then again, you pretty much already let everyone know maybe you’re not so smart after all yourself when you decided to use your little title opportunity on me instead of making the wise move to go after someone else.

Andre Walker: I bet that’s what you thought I’d do, probably what you wanted me to do, because you know yourself how the opportunity afforded by King of Elite can change everything. It guaranteed the title shot but I know it’s on me to take it the rest of the way and get it done, something that I won’t need to go as far as Prophetic Visions to secure – and I’m more than willing to find out all that it’s going to take because I’m more than willing to go there. I haven’t been waiting for someone to come and push me to be great, I sought that greatness out myself because I wasn’t going to lower my expectations – and I was only ever going to aim for the top. So, why wouldn’t I go right for you? This is something that I’ve shown I’m ready for, something that not too many other people holding this Interwire Championship at the same time could’ve done, because I’m so far different from being like anyone else in knowing what I’m capable of.

(The Visual Prophet looks to Angelo with an unimpressed expression, finding his cohort wearing a similar one himself and they roll their eyes in unison while Andre stares them down from across the ring.)

Andre Walker: The fact is, Viz, you haven’t been tested all season the way you’re going to be at Pain for Pride. You think you’ve been challenged and pushed to the brink, you’ve been successful in some bloody matches – it’s just that no one’s had you by the neck while you get held out over the edge. I’ve got everything it’d take to bring that to a reality. While you’re scratching and clawing for a way around me, I’ll be right there in your face showing you that I’m truly not like the others and that it was always going to be me who’d make the biggest difference.

The Visual Prophet: The biggest difference of what? Because where do you want me to start in letting you know that you’re really buying too much into your own hype? I mean, it’s cool or whatever that you wanna be proud of holding that mid-card trash and pretending to act like it’s a big deal, but we both know for a fact there’s not a single person talking about that Interwire Championship the same way my World Heavyweight Championship gets talked about! So why lie, Andre?! Why?!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: Why, Andre?!

The Visual Prophet: I’ve been carrying this World Heavyweight Championship since I snatched it from Xander Payne’s fat, greasy hands as the undisputed face of this company! You think you’re the best in EAW? You’re not even the best on this fucking brand!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: :mjlol:!!!!!!!!!!

The Visual Prophet: I guess it was only a matter of time before I had to go and show you why-

Andre Walker: Losing to some guy with the fucked up school that violates I don’t know how many national health codes, isn’t really in my plans for the Pain for Pride weekend, so I’m gonna have to stop you right there on that one. Plus, after everything that everyone’s come to know about you, me winning that World Heavyweight Championship might as well be looked at as me doing everyone a favor.

The Visual Prophet: A favor?! All I’ve done is bring ratings to this shit that EAW hadn’t seen before my time; they can’t afford to not have me on top! You’re talking like you’re some kind of savior when that Interwire Championship is rotting away as hardly even part of all this knowing I’m the whole conversation; we both know who’s the face of everything around here. So who’s really cheering you on? All the trash Elitists in the back who want me to lose just so they can feel like they’ve got an actual shot with me out the picture? I can’t help it that I make all this shit look easy; just imagine how they’re all gonna feel when I’m walking out of Pain for Pride with not one but two Championships!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: They’re a little too excited to be praying on a black man’s downfall if you ask me, but what else should be expected from boring cacs and all the other envious so-called “talent” that just aren’t ever gonna match up to Big Viz on paper, let alone in the ring?!

Andre Walker: As long as I’m winning, I couldn’t care less what anyone else thinks of whatever the hell you’ll have going on after the fact. Without the World Heavyweight Title, I can’t imagine it’d be much more than filler feuds if shit goes the way it did after you first lost it; Veena’s gonna need something to do and I’m sure a reunion with her wouldn’t be some kind of a longshot to consider. Meanwhile, I’ll be the World Heavyweight Champion and the Interwire Champion, showing that I can really have whatever I set my sights on. World Titles, this Interwire Championship, a Pain for Pride main event – I can really have it all, and knowing how bad I want it, it’s not looking good for you.

The Visual Prophet: And what the hell are you gonna do when you don’t have shit to speak of after it’s all said and done? Try to hype up your failed shot at Pain for Pride by saying at least you came as close as you did just to ultimately lose? It’s not like Bronson’s around to let you get another Championship off of him; maybe Angelo was right about that identity crisis after all, because one way or another, after I’m done with you, no one’s gonna see you for anything that you are now-

Stew-O: ANDRE TAKES A KICK TO THE FACE FROM VIZ AS HE CHARGED HIM FOR “HUNGER ON HILLSIDE”!!! JUST AS ANDRE LEFT HIS FEET, VIZ BOOTED HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE! ANDRE CRASHES TO THE MAT, A HAND TO HIS FACE AFTER THAT KICK!

Flannery McCoy: AND LOOK AT THE VISUAL PROPHET NOW! HE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND ANGELO D’ANGELO IS QUICK TO FOLLOW AS QUICK AS HE CAN, WHILE ANDRE TRIES TO QUICKLY GRAB AT VIZ THROUGH THE ROPES!!!

Jake Mercer: But The Visual Prophet is already out of reach :blessed:!!! He walks away from the ring, the World Heavyweight Championship raised over his head while he taunts Andre – I couldn’t think of a better sight that could come at Pain for Pride than this right here!

(The Visual Prophet and Angelo D’Angelo trash-talk Andre as they continue up the ramp, Andre glaring from the ring as he pushes himself up onto his knees just in front of the ropes.)

Flannery McCoy: Viz just narrowly escaped tonight-

Jake Mercer: “Narrowly”, Flannery?! That was impeccable timing from our World Heavyweight Champion just now! Andre never even came close! Viz will surely get him back though at Pain for Pride, just wait and see!

Stew-O: Having to wait and see is all any of us are going to be able to do until Pain for Pride, because this looks like how things are going to come to a close here tonight on this final Friday Night Dynasty of the season! With Flannery McCoy and Jake Mercer, I’m Stew-O, thank you for joining us and we’ll be seeing all of you next week at Pain for Pride!

(The Visual Prophet continues to have the World Heavyweight Championship raised after making it to the stage, Angelo still taunting and laughing at Andre. The Interwire Champion is just getting back on his feet in the ring, the two Pain for Pride opponents still engaged in a stare-down as the scene at Friday Night Dynasty begins to fade out.)
