(Highlights of the Hardcore Championship match between Maddox Ayres and Cody Marshall are shown. The package ends with unseen footage of Maddox Ayres being loaded onto a stretcher and exiting the arena via ambulance)
(The camera transitions over to the commentary table)
Stew: It was an absolutely brutal scene seven days ago at Culture Crisis. Joining us at this time is Doctor Craig Budring…
(Doctor Budring appears on the screen)
Stew: Doc, we understand that you’ve been treating Maddox Ayres this week, can you give us an update on his condition? How’s he doing?
Doctor Budring: Well, to be honest with you… he’s doing far better than he should be. After all the punishment he took last week, being put into the ambulance and then making the ill advised decision to leave it only to take MORE punishment, may have been admirable… but the consequences of a decision like that could have been dire, fortunately Maddox Ayres finds himself to be extremely lucky.
Doctor Budring: UNFORTUNATELY however… he is of course, not without any injury, no man possibly could be. Maddox Ayres has three broken ribs, and will be missing some in-ring time. It won’t be an extensive period of time but… he will not be able to compete at Pain For Pride.
Bari: And Doctor Budring, I assume you told that news to Maddox Ayres, how did he take it?
Doctor Budring: Well, Maddox Ayres, as I think proved to all of us last week is a competitor, and telling him that he won’t be able to do that, he’s obviously not going to take that well. He was upset, he tried to convince me that he can compete but… it’s just not going to happen. His body needs time to heal, and the only way it can do that is to take him out of that ring.
Stew: So hold on, are you saying that hypothetically Maddox Ayres COULD compete?
Doctor Budring: Look, does he have an injury that fully prevents him from competing? No. But we all saw that match last week and the punishment that he took, his body is in a very fragile state right now. Any further harm to it could cause a complete, debilitating… and then he WON’T be able to compete, AT ALL… possibly forever.
Doctor Budring: Look, I understand it isn’t the popular decision, you don’t like me for it and Maddox certainly doesn’t either, but I’m not letting him compete until his body is fully healed. That’s my decision and it’s final.
Stew: Doctor, thank you.
(The camera fades into a commercial break)
Stephie: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for one fall!!

Talib: And here’s a young man looking to keep climbing around here! You know Stew, no matter what the crowd says, this kid is money!
Stew: That’s hilarious partner. Looks like we’re ready to get underway… no… wait… GC is approaching Ms. Extreme… you’ve got to be kidding me! He’s actually hitting on her before the match!
Talib: Hey, rich guy, beautiful woman, it’s a match made in heaven! And Ms. Extreme looks into it! She’s wagging her finger for him to come closer! We’re gonna see a love connection here on Dynasty! GC moves in, full of swagger…
Stew: OH MY CHESTNUTS!!! SHE JUST GRABBED HIS SHOULDERS AND DROVE HER KNEE DIRECTLY INTO COOPER’S CROTCH!!! GC IS ON THE GROUND! HIS EYES ARE BUGGING OUT OF HIS HEAD!! I DONT THINK HE CAN BREATHE!!!
Ms. Extreme (Off-mic): Ring the bell!!
(The referee looks around, uncertain, but he calls for the bell)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: Ms. Extreme goes for a cover already! She’s gonna beat GC purely of the low blow!
Stew: And GC gets the shoulder up! He’s still in pain! He looks like he might be sick! Ms. Extreme is laughing! She’s loving this! She hits the ropes… But GC rolls out of the ring and to the floor.
Talib: Yeah he’s gonna need more than a ten count to get his breath back after that. Still haven’t gotten mine back. Yeeeeesh. Looks like the refs gonna count.
1 2 3
GC is on the ground, still trying to recover. He begins to get one foot under himself, still no breath in his lungs. Ms. Extreme leans against the ropes, keeping a close eye on her prey.
4 5 6
GC struggles but gets back to his feet. He’s gasping for air, finally starting to get his breath back after the… let’s say “rejection” from earlier. He looks up and waves her off! HE’S WALKING OUT OF THE MATCH!!
GC walks up the side of the ring towards the ramp.
GC TURNS AROUND JUST IN TIME TO GET HIT!!! THE SCREAMING RED QUEEN JUST HIT A SUICIDE DIVE INTO A TORNADO DDT ON THE FLOOR!!!
She screams out of adrenaline and grabs GC. She pulls him to his feet and rolls him back into the ring!
Stew: GC is not moving! The member of the Ava clan has climbed to the top rope!! She’s going for the— OOOHH!!! GC GETS THE KNEES UP TO BLOCK THE MOONSAULT!! This is exactly what GC needs to get back in this!! He goes for the cover!
Talib: But Ms. Extreme still has a lot left. She looks pissed that he blocked her moonsault! She’s gets back to her feet, still clutching her midsection. GC looks ready to bolt if he gets the chance! He’s never been in the ring with someone like Ms. Extreme! And like a Banshee the Red Queen is at it again! Punches and elbows to GC! She’s backing him into the corner!!
Stew: But Cooper shoves her back and creates some distance… but Ms. Extreme rushes in… OH! But GC just popped her up onto his shoulders!! Running sit out powerbomb connects!!! But he doesn’t keep the pin? Maybe he knows it’s not enough. GC checks his face to see if any of those wild shots busted him open, but he’s clear.
Talib: He may be clear… but he looks pissed. He’s grabbing Ms. Extreme by the hair. Oh and now some disrespectful slaps to the face. Ms Extreme is dazed from the powerbomb… Wait… GC feeds her hand through, he’s gonna…
Stew: GOLDEN FORMULA CONNECTS! THE PUMPHANDLE DRIVER PLANTS THE RED QUEEN!! THATS GOTTA BE IT!! COVER!!
Stew: No!! The ref saw Ms. Extreme’s foot on the ropes before his hand hit the mat!! Shes still got life!! GC is livid!! What’s he? He’s climbing to the top rope!
Talib: Uh oh. He’s looking for the Down to Business… the top rope double foot stomp! He’s waiting for Ms. Extreme start to get up so he can plant her into the mat! But GC has a serious size advantage! This could break the Ava sister in half!!
Stew: Ms. Extreme is up on one knee… Gc has a twisted look on his face… if she steps up on the other… WOW!! What wherewithal!! She just launched herself into the ropes!! GC is hung up on the top… oh and he did not land on a fun spot. Someone have the man some ice ready…
Talib: I think I see tears in his eyes…
Stew: But Ms. Extreme isn’t done. She’s pulls him down and drags him to the middle. THATS THE AVA LOCK!!! THE MODIFIED STF IS LOCKED IN!!! GC is in agony!!! He’s in the middle of the ring!! The ref is checking…
Talib: Whoa!! GC is grabbing onto the ref!! He’s crawling over him and using him to help drag himself! Got some leverage! Wow! He uses the leverage from the ref to do enough of a push up and roll over on top of Ms. Extreme!!! Her shoulders are down!!
Stew: Ms. Extreme breaks the hold after applying a couple more seconds of punishment. She’s on her feet and on the prowl! GC is stepping up… The Red Queen rushes him!
Talib: But he side steps and shoves Ms. Extreme directly into the turnbuckle! Now he’s got her from behind! HE ROLLS HER UP FROM UNDERNEATH!!!
GC JUST PUT HIS FEET ON THE ROPES!!
THE REF DOESNT SEE!!! MS EXTREME IS STRUGGLING TO ESCAPE!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“$$$” by Xxxtentacion hits as GC rolls quickly out of the ring and bee-lines for the ramp way, Ms. Extreme pops up, furiously eyeing the cheat and yelling for him to come back!)
Stephie: Here is your winner by pinfall… GARRRRIISSSSOOONNNNN COOOOOOPPPEEEERRRR JJUUUUUNNNNIIOORRRR!!!!
Ms. Extreme (Off-Mic): GET BACK HERE AND FIGHT LIKE A MAN!!!!
Stew: Absolute highway robbery here tonight!! Cooper just stole this win from Ms. Extreme!!
Talib: May not agree with his tactics. But the kid picked up the result he needed. GC has a win on the road to Pain for Pride!
(The camera fades backstage to Woogieman and Shaker Jones in their locker room, Shaker Jones is sitting in a folding chair, running his hands through his hair while Woogieman paces around the room in his signature Hawaiian shirt)
Woogieman: WE WERE THIS CLOSE!! *Clapping his hands together* WE HAD THEM!!
(Shaker raises his head up)
Shaker Jones: If we had them, we would’ve gotten them… we didn’t… they had us.
Woogieman: NAH!! Listen… look, hear me out… you and me… that was our first, OUR FIRST match as a team, and we were up against two guys who have been a team for… God knows how long… and we almost beat them.
Shaker Jones: Almost.
Woogieman: YEAH… ALMOST!! No one gave us a chance, but we ALMOST beat one of the best teams in the entire company, IN OUR FIRST MATCH!! This… this is working. You and me, it’s working!
Shaker Jones: It ain’t working unless it works, we lost.
Woogieman: Man WHAT is wrong with you? Why are you being so pessimistic??
Shaker Jones: BECAUSE I ACTUALLY AM WORKING!!
(Shaker Jones stands up to meet with Woogieman)
Shaker Jones: I’m the Big Baker Bhampion… I’ve BEEN working. What are you, huh? Nothing, nobody… you haven’t been since you lost this championship. We tried, we failed… and I, don’t fail. We lost because of you. YOU GOT PINNED… I was left in that ring looking like a damn fool!
Shaker Jones: It’s Pain For Pride season, I can’t be stuck with some lackey to drag me down. I need to find an opponent for MY Bhampionship.
Shaker Jones: As far as I’m concerned… this little union? It’s over.
(Shaker Jones pushes Woogieman aside as he exits the frame. The camera focuses in on Woogieman who raises his eyebrow before we fade back into the arena)

Stew: Lucas came up short in the ladder match at Culture Crisis and missed his shot to get into the CITV match at Pain for Pride. He’s looking to start some fresh momentum here tonight to get back on the right track!
(“Who Could Win a Rabbit” by Animal Collective hits as RANSOM enters)
Stephie: And his opponent, making his way to the ring, from Old Mines, Missouri, weighting in at 247 pounds… RRRRRRRAAAAANNNNNSSSSSOOOOOMMMMM!!!!
Talib: But Lucas will have to get through Ransom. He’s still a bit new around here, but he’s making his presence felt in EAW. Let’s see who takes the win here tonight!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: Lucas opens the match hard by rushing the larger man. Doesn’t even want a tie up! Just launching shots into the midsection of Ransom! Shit after shot! To abdominals! To the ribs! Lucas is not messing around here tonight!
Talib: Of course he’s not! This is the road to PFP! But look out! Ransom with a sudden snap mare takes this down and applies a rear chin lock! Driving the knee into Johnson’s back! Just an unnatural bend to the spine! But Johnson now works towards his side! He’s propped himself up! Scoops the leg and Ransom breaks the hold Ashe topples over!
Stew: But Johnson looks to get back on the offensive! Hits the ropes! OH! Running punt into the ribs of Ransom! Just continuing to work that midsection! And now Johnson pulls him up and applies the abdominal stretch! Ransom is in pain here folks! He could have broken ribs after that punt! That will hurt his ability to breathe and in turn his entire offense and pacing!
Talib: Ransom needs to find a way out quick if he’s going to stand any chance here! He’s twisting his face in pain! Wait… he’s adjusting his stance… ohh the bigger man gets his arm down and scoops Johnsons legs up and delivers a modified back body drop! Ransom rolls to the outside to take a breath! Lucas follows suit to recover from the slam! The ref starts the count!
1 2 3
Ransom grabs his ribs and catches his breath. Lucas grabs the back of his head and tries to shake the cobwebs. Lucas looks up to see Ransom on the other side.
4 5 6
Ransom beats some life into his abdomen, wincing in pain. Johnson is lurking around the corner, scouting. He runs and attempts a clothesline… BUT RANSOM HITS A STRAIGHT RIGHT TO THE FACE OF JOHNSON!!!
Johnson smacks into the ground and rolls to his stomach, trying to get back up. Ransom looks him over and rolls back into the ring.
Johnson is up to his knees, gets to one foot…
Johnson leaps for the apron!!
Stew: No! He just got under the rope at nine and three quarters! The ref says the match will continue!! Johnson is still glazed from the shot to the face, he must’ve gotten in in pure instinct! Ransom grabs him by the shoulders… OH! He’s hoisting him up!!! MARTYRDOM!!! RANSOM CONNECTS WITH THE CRUCIFIX POWERBOMB!!! THE PIN!!!
Talib: NO! Johnson just gets the shoulder up! Ransom is not happy! He pulls Johnson back to his feet. Grabs him by the head… OOF!! Johnson shoves him off and lands a dropkick to Ransom’s face!! Both men are down!!
Stew: But Ransom is the first back up! Johnson is still on his knees! Ransom charges! Looks like he wants to plant a knee in— OH MY!! JOHNSON JUST SCOOPED RANSOM UP FROM FULL MOMENTUM!!! MACHINE BREAK CONNECTS!! HE HITS THE F5!!! JOHNSON WITH THE COVER!!!

(“Rise Up” by Saliva hits as Damon Diesel makes his way to the ring)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Orlando, Florida… weighing in at 202 pounds… DAMMMMONNNN DIEEEEESSSELLLLLL!!

(“Shook Ones” by Mobb Deep hits as Scott Diamond approaches the stage to a large ovation. He jumps up and down a few times before continuing down the ramp)
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Approaching the ring first, from Long Island, New York… weighing in at 280 pounds… SCOOOTTTTTT DIIIIAAAMMMMMOOOONNNDDD!!
Stew: It was a big surprise when last week we learned that Scott Diamond, the Hall of Famer, the former Answers World Champion had joined the Dynasty brand! Tonight he issues an open challenge and the question is… who’s gonna answer it?
Bari: Man whoever it is, good luck to them! Scott Diamond looks determined tonight!
(Scott Diamond steps into the ring and continues to do his warm-up routine as the music dies down. After a few seconds…
…“Long Live The Chief” by Jidenna hits)
Stew: OH YEAH!! MAXIMUS GRIER, DETERMINED AFTER TAKING THE LOSS TO DARKANE AT CULTURE CRISIS, THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD!!
(But instead Sebastian Monroe steps out from behind the curtain, alone, wearing a suit and a microphone in hand, to the bewilderment of Scott Diamond)
Stew: Sebastian Monroe?? What’s this?!
(Monroe steps through the ring ropes and grins widely as he brings the microphone up and begins to speak)
Sebastian Monroe: Scott Diamond, my oh my, may I just say how GREAT it is to have you back on the red brand.
Sebastian Monroe: You know Scott, you and I… we have a bit of history… remember? Territorial Invasion? You were a part of Team Monroe and well… sure, that didn’t end so well for us, but there was something there wasn’t it? You, being led by a man who actually knows what he’s doing… we could’ve done something great, we could’ve been something great! So… why don’t we?
(Scott continues to look on)
Sebastian Monroe: I can give you what you want. I can give you what Albert Hitchman hasn’t been able to get you. Where is he by the way? Couldn’t make it tonight? Huh… disappointing. Look Scott, you want to be the Answers World Champion again, I know that. It’s what you’ve wanted ever since you returned, it’s the one thing you want to do before you ride off into the sunset for you. I, I know it eats away at you. You’ve had your chances, you’ve had your opportunities but for one reason or another the Answers World Championship has continued to elude you, but not with my guidance. With my guidance you WILL become the Answers World Champion. As a member of the Big Monroe Brand everything you want will be given to you, all of your dreams will come true. Your career will reach heights never imagined and for someone like you, that’s certainly saying something… what do you say Scott?!
(Sebastian Monroe extends his free hand to Scott Diamond who moves his head down to meet it with his eyes)
Sebastian Monroe: Shake my hand and the door opens.
Sebastian Monroe: Come on Scott! Don’t be stupid! Don’t be like Tyler Parker! He refused my offer and look where he is now! Gone! He didn’t even last a month here on Dynasty! He–
Stew: AND OH!! OH SCOTT DIAMOND!! HE THROWS SEBASTIAN MONROE OVER HIS SHOULDERS, MONROE FLAILING AROUND IN A PANIC… BUT IT’S NOT GONNA BE ANY USE…
Stew: SCOTT DIAMOND WITH A VORTEX TO SEBASTIAN MONROE, GOOD ON YOU!! THERE’S YOUR ANSWER MONROE… A BIG FAT NO!!
Bari: Sebastian Monroe seems to have angered Scott Diamond and that means TROUBLE but Stew, remember the threat that Monroe made! He had a good point… Tyler Parker declined Monroe’s offer to join the Big Monroe Brand and he was run off the show and out of the company within weeks! I hope this isn’t a decision that Scott Diamonds ends up regretting! This surely isn’t the end of this!
(Scott Diamond exits the ring, not looking back as the camera focuses in on Sebastian Monroe, coming to, looking up at the stage in anger as the camera fades out)

Stew: Guaranteed action indeed. It’s interesting that Cody will face a guy who has 121 pounds less than him. I can’t wait to see what Reigner can do being in this massive disadvantage.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Talib: The match has officially started AS CODY MARSHALL GOES FOR THE BIG BOOT RIGHT AWAY, BUT REIGNER MANAGES TO GET OUT OF THE WAY. CODY NOW TURNS AROUND AND REIGNER WITH A KICK TO THE BIG LEG OF MARSHALL, ANOTHER ONE, AND ANOTHER ONE WHICH CAUSES CODY TO FALL ON HIS KNEE HOLDING IT IN PAIN. REIGNER GOES TO THE ROPES CHARGING TOWARDS CODY WITH A BIG BOOT, BUT CODY CATCHES HIS LEG AND CODY GETS UP ON HIS FEET, BUT REIGNER CONNECTS WITH A KICK WITH THE OTHER LEG TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF MARSHALL. MARSHALL HOLDS HIS HEAD MAKING NOAH THINK HE IS HURT BUT CODY WITH A SIDE KICK IN THE MID-SECTION OF NOAH AND NOAH IS ON HIS KNEES.
Stew: CODY NOW HAS AN OPENING AND CODY GOES FOR THAT LOW BIG BOOT AND IT CONNECTS. NOAH IS DOWN BUT CODY GETS HIM UP AND HE GOES TO TOWARDS THE ROPE TO DRIVE NOAH RIGHT THERE FOR THE SNAKE EYES, NOAH IS DAZED AND HE GETS PICKED UP BY MARSHALL AND THE SIDEWALK SLAM CONNECTS. CODY GOES FOR THE COVER!
Stew: Kickout by Reigner. Cody goes to the ropes waiting for Noah to get back to his feet. Noah gets slowly up and Cody Marshall goes right away looking to catch Noah for the chokeslam, but Noah ducks underneath AND NOAH WITH THE STEP UP ENZUIGIRI. REIGNER ISN’T DONE YET AS HE BLOWS THE BACK OF CODY WITH A LUNGBLOWER OF THE BACK OF MARSHALL. Both men are exhausted as both of them slowly head to the corner, but Noah is clearly fresher here. NOAH REIGNER GETS UP FIRST AND HE CHARGES TOWARDS CODY AND CONNECTS WITH A DOUBLE KNEE TO CODY MARSHALL, BUT REIGNER WANTS MORE AS HE GOES BACK AND STRIKES MARSHALL AGAIN BUT THIS TIME WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE.
Talib: GOOD NIGHT CODY MARSHALL. REIGNER HAS AN OPENING HERE AND HE GETS CODY UP, NOAH LOOKING FOR THE WOLFE’S BLOOD, BUT MARSHALL REVERSES INTO A SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE TAKING NOAH DOWN, BUT NOAH GETS ON HIS FEET RIGHT AWAY AND HE IS DAZED. MARSHALL TRIES TO THROW NOAH OUT OF THE RING, BUT NOAH LANDS OF THE APRON GRABBING THE ROPES TO AVOID FALLING OFF. Cody now going for Noah, BUT NOAH WITH THE SLINGSHOT SPEAR FROM OUTSIDE OF THE ROPES, AND HE GOT THE BIG MAN DOWN!! CODY MARSHALL IS DOWN AND NOAH REIGNER LOOKS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE BY HOOKING THE LEG!!
ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO CODY POWERS OUT!!
Stew: An impressive move by Noah Reigner but not nearly enough to keep the Hardcore Champion down! Noah Reigner gets to his feet and assesses the situation, Cody Marshall is beginning to stir… NOAH REIGNER RUNS OFF THE ROPES AS MARSHALL GETS BACK TO HIS FEET… MARSHALL TRIES FOR THE BIG BOOT AGAIN BUT IT’S DUCKED, AND NOW NOAH REIGNER SPRINGBOARDING OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE AND CATCHING CODY MARSHALL WITH A CLOTHESLINE, TAKING HIM DOWN!!
Bari: Cody Marshall is FEENING to hit that big boot and it’s gonna mean big problems for Noah Reigner if it does hit! Cody is back to his feet again… NOAH REIGNER COMES CHARGING, BUT CODY CATCHES HIM!! CODY CATCHES HIM, THROWING HIM OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND NOW SLAMMING HIM DOWN INTO THE CANVAS WITH A POWERSLAM!! A SPINE RATTLING POWERSLAM BUT CODY MARSHALL… SLOW TO FOLLOW UP!! AND I THINK THE HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH FROM CULTURE CRISIS IS BEGINNING TO AFFECT HIM!! HE’S SLOW AND SLUGGISH… AND HE’S ALLOWED NOAH REIGNER TO STIR!!… Reigner grabs onto the ropes, using them to pull himself to his feet… BUT THERE’S CODY MARSHALL… WRAPPING HIS BIG HAND AROUND THE THROAT OF REIGNER… LIFTING HIM UP… LOOKING FOR THE CHOKESLAM AGAIN AND THIS TIME IT CONNECTS… COVER!!
ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NOAH REIGNER WITH THE SHOULDER UP!!
Stew: But hey Bari, don’t forget! Noah Reigner took part in a ladder match just a week ago, it was no walk in the park for him! I’m impressed that he’s holding up so well! And you see it again folks, Cody Marshall struggling to take advantage after the kick out from Noah Reigner! Marshall sets himself up in the corner… Noah Reigner struggling to make it back to his feet… CODY MARSHALL COMES CHARGING… LOOKING FOR THE BIG BOOT AGAIN… OH A DISCUS BIG BOOT!! AND IT CONNECTS, CRACKING NOAH REIGNER IN THE JAW… BUT HE FALLS THROUGH THE ROPES AND OUT OF THE RING, NOAH REIGNER MAY HAVE JUST CAUGHT A BIG BREAK HERE!! CODY MARSHALL DROPS TO HIS KNEES, FURIOUS BEFORE ROLLING OUT OF THE RING, THAT WAS HIS BEST CHANCE SO FAR IN THIS MATCH BUT NOAH REIGNER, LUCK WAS WITH HIM AS THAT FALL CAUSED HIM TO DROP OUT OF THE RING!!
Bari: Cody grabs a fistful of Noah’s hair as he pulls him back to a vertical base… he fires a right hand before rolling him into the ring, Noah tries to scramble away from Marshall but Marshall is right on his tail… you know I don’t think we’ve been giving Cody Marshall enough credit. Sure he may be missing that extra jump in his step but his offense is just as effective as it’s always been! These moves have done the damage needed! Noah Reigner is back to his feet in the corner… AND HERE COMES CODY MARSHALL!!… BUT NOAH REIGNER… REIGNER SIDESTEPS THE ATTACK, HE STICKS HIS FOOT OUT TRIPPING CODY MARSHALL UP!!… CODY GOES FACE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE, AND NOW NOAH REIGNER FROM BEHIND WITH THE ROLL UP!!
ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THREEEE!! OH MY GOD!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Wings of Icarus” begins to play as Noah Reigner rolls out of the ring and gets his arm raised in victory. Cody Marshall pops to his feet, enraged in the ring)
Stephie Love: Your winner… NOAAHHH REEIIIGGGNNNERRR!!
Stew: NOAH REIGNER WITH ANOTHER ONE!! HIS IMPRESSIVE RUN CONTINUES, THIS TIME A WIN OUT OF NOWHERE OVER THE HARDCORE CHAMPION!!
Bari: AND LOOK AT CODY MARSHALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, HE’S FUMING!! ABSOLUTELY FUMING THAT HE JUST GOT BEAT WITH A ROLL UP!! STAY OUT OF HIS WAY!!
(Final commercial break)
(The camera returns to the arena as (“Rainmaker” (Dominion 2017 Mix) by Yonosuke Kitamura hits. Carlos Rosso steps onto the stage in a charcoal suit. He looks down at the Answers World Championship strapped around his waist and smiles from ear to ear, he makes his way towards the ring)
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome… THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… CARRRRRLLLLOOOOSSSS ROOOOOSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOO!!
Stew: That’s right, THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION AND NOW HE HAS THE BELT TO PROVE IT!! Carlos Rosso… with one of the most impressive performances I’ve ever seen at Culture Crisis. First defending his championship against Reginald Dampshaw III, beating him in record time… and then thwarting an attack from Darkane and TAKING back his Answers World Championship! Surely a highlight night for his career!
Talib Bari: Not only was it a record time… it was a predicted time… under a minute!
(Carlos grabs a microphone from ringside and brings it into the ring with him. The music begins to die down as he speaks)
Carlos: What I tell y’all? Under a minute. What did I do? Beat Dampshaw… in under a minute. I told y’all I was gonna make a statement, told y’all that I would make you regret ever doubting me.. AND I DID ALL OF THAT!!
Carlos: NOT ONLY DID I RETAIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP, I GOT THE BELT BACK!! FINALLY IT’S BACK WHERE IT BELONGS, AROUND MY WAIST!!
Carlos: And now, with all that bullshit behind us, FINALLY… with a clear head, I can look forward to the biggest match of my career. Pain For Pride 11.
Carlos: I’ve gone into Pain For Pride before as the challenger, but never the champion. It’s a different feeling, a big difference. You know, when you’re the challenger–
(The lights are cut out)
Stew: AND SPEAKING OF THE CHALLENGER…
(The lights return and Darkane is in the middle of the ring, a shovel in his hand)
Bari: IT’S DARKANE, HE’S HERE!! AND HE HAS THAT SHOVEL… LOOK OUT NOW, HE RAISES THAT SHOVEL OVER HIS HEAD… SWINGING IT DOWN ACROSS THE HEAD OF CARLOS ROSSO, BUT IT’S DUCKED!! DUCKED BY CARLOS ROSSO… AND NOW WAIT, LOOK AT THIS!! SECURITY, SECURITY BY THE MASSES RUNNING DOWN THE AISLE, FORCING THEMSELVES BETWEEN THESE TWO HERE!! CARLOS ROSSO ON ONE SIDE, DARKANE ON THE OTHER AND DOZENS OF SECURITY GUARDS IN THE MIDDLE SEPARATING THEM!!
(“2nd Sucks” by A Day to Remember hits as StarrStan storms onto the top of the stage with a microphone in his hand)
Starr: CARLOS… DARKANE, DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!! I’m NOT about to have my Pain For Pride main event jeopardized AGAIN. You two clearly can’t keep your hands off each other… SO I’M FORCING YOU TO!! There is to be no contact between you two from now until Pain For Pride… should either of you fail to honor that stipulation, you will be removed from the main event of Pain For Pride and stripped of any and all championships, contractual obligations! Am I understood?!
(Neither man nods their head, the staredown continues as the camera fades to black)
