(EAW intro plays.)
(After the iconic EAW intro is played, a montage follows suit, bringing the viewers up to speed on everything that unfolded on last week’s show: Kassidy Heart opens up the show, celebrating her successful third defense with the Universal Women’s Championship. She says that her challenger, Minerva, isn’t going to beat her, and that’s when the aforementioned Iconic Cup winner comes out, warning Kassidy that her hubris can and will lead to her downfall as it did a few times in her career. In the opening contest, AIRI Evergarden continues her momentum as she is able to defeat the man who will be challenging for the New Breed championship soon, NOVA. In the next match, Ryan Wilson defeats BRAE, but afterward, a shocking scene unfolds: Xander Payne breaks into his house live on air and trashes it, traumatizing Ryan’s family in the process! Fortunately, aside from pushing away Ryan’s mother, the family isn’t physically harmed. Still, the mental toil such a scene leaves is enough to scare them… and spark a rageful fire within Ryan. Sienna Jade defeats Luis De La Rosa in the next contest for that evening. Backstage, Kensingten Calhoun-Astor and Richard Grant love on each other, but Richard takes their budding relationship into a serious step by offering Kensingten a promise ring. She gladly accepts. Chris Elite is able to defeat MITSU in a House of Glass rematch. In a backstage segment, Cy Henderson is interviewed about his issues with Drake Armstrong spiraling, and he throws down the gauntlet: he wants to face Drake himself and get rid of the Armstrong problem at Road to Redemption! Back to the in-ring action, another House of Glass rematch occurs as Milli Banks is able to defeat Rory Slate. Ms. Extreme, who was out on commentary for the match, comes rushing in afterward and attacks Milli. Joso and Chris Elite go at it in a particularly heated exchange in the ring, which escalates, spurring Joso to black out and relentlessly attack Chris with a chair! The once-beloved “New Era” is booed for his uncharacteristic actions. Shinzo Sasaki of KAI-ZEN is able to punch his ticket into the finals of the Cash in the Vault tournament after a competitive fight against Donovan Duke. A highly-produced segment is shown involving Jake Smith, Hans Grayson, Jay Jerry Johnson, Myles, and SOSA Henderson appropriating Bronson Daniels’ “finish the story” mantra and how Road to Redemption is the time for them to close out their own chapter on a high note by becoming the new EAW World Heavyweight Champion. Following off of the heels of that, a Road to Redemption preview tag team match occurs, and Jay Jerry Johnson and Hans Grayson are able to defeat Myles and Bronson Daniels, though SOSA Henderson got himself involved by blindsiding Bronson, unbeknownst to the other competitors. After weeks of failures, MITSU is confronted by Ricky and the rest of KAI-ZEN. As much as he promises to change and get his act together, Ricky informs him that he has given him multiple chances, and his luck has run out. As such, he is attacked and kicked out of the group. SOSA Henderson and Jake Smith’s highly-anticipated clash and rematch is thrown out after Myles intervenes. Bronson also comes running out, seeking his lick back against SOSA, but he accidentally hits Jake after SOSA evades, and Jake attacks him! Jake attacks everyone else, standing tall at the conclusion of the chaotic brawl! In the main event, Theron Nikolas takes on Andre Walker. It’s a battle of two of the aces of their generation, but with Ronan Malosi and Voltage’s Jamie O’Hara getting involved in the mix, the main event is ruled a no contest! Referees and security guards all come swarming in, keeping the four men apart as Dynasty closes on a tumultuous note!)
(The montage ends. The Dynasty logo splashes across the screen before transitioning into the live feed. The Orleans Arena in Paradise, Nevada is shown off from the outside before the shot fades into the interior. The arena is packed! The jovial EAW fans all wave up to the iconic overhead camera sweeping through the place, capturing everyone in attendance. A couple of fans are wearing turkey-inspired clothing as a post-Thanksgiving fun fair and others are already donning some holiday-like clothes faster than Mariah Carey promoting her Christmas song. Pyrotechnics go off in a dazzling display of red, lighting up the arena. Then, the shot transitions to Stew-O, Jake Mercer, and Flannery McCoy.)
Stew-O: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE ARE GETTING CLOSER TO ROAD TO REDEMPTION! WE ARE 15 DAYS AWAY BEFORE WE REACH THE HALFWAY POINT OF THIS SEASON!
Jake Mercer: IT MAY BE THE WINTERTIME, BUT THINGS HAVE BEEN HEATING UP LEADING TO THAT EVENT! WE HAD SO MUCH HAPPEN FROM LAST WEEK’S SHOW ALONE!
Flannery McCoy: You aren’t lying! Things have been getting more and more intense! We can’t wait to see what happens in the next two weeks! It’s sure to be a roller coaster ride!
Stew-O: At least we don’t have to wait, as tonight’s show promises to be a good one! And with that said, welcome everyone LIVE to FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY! I am Stew-O, joined here by Jake Mercer and Flannery McCoy! What a show we’ve got, guys!
Jake Mercer: Yessir! We have MITSU and Roberto De La Rosa setting the pace first when it comes to the action! Then, we have KAI-ZEN’s Mig De Decker and Prince Tohru taking on Cody Maverick and NOVA who will be challenging for the New Breed Championship next week! After that, it’s Ms. Extreme versus LILITH! Rory Slate is slated to be competing, too!
Flannery McCoy: And then we move on to Milli Banks taking on AIRI Evergarden! Ronan Malosi goes up against Xander Payne! And in our main event, Kassidy Heart faces Cy Henderson in a battle of the ages!
Stew-O: There’s so much to look forward to, that’s for sure! There’s a lot to deal with, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store tonight!
(After the introductions, ‘Invincible’ by Pop Smoke plays. The fans get up, cheering. Chris Elite steps out, not wanting to waste time. He looks furious.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, introducing at this time… CHRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSS EEEEEEELLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Stew-O: Well, to say that Chris isn’t happy would feel like an understatement. His issues with Joso has exploded into something else entirely, and with everything that’s gone on between them, Chris has had enough trying to talk some sense into him.
Flannery McCoy: Things have truly escalated. It’s a shame, but this isn’t anything new. It’s just a shame that two former allies have imploded in this manner.
Jake Mercer: It is what it is. Still, Chris is out here, and at least the fans are eager to hear what he has to say about this whole situation!
(Sure enough, a stagehand passes Chris the mic as he gets in. He stands right in the center of the ring. He looks around as his theme fades. He takes a deep breath, annoyed as can be.)
Crowd: CHRIS! CHRIS! CHRIS! CHRIS!
(At the very least, the fans were firmly behind him. However, for Chris in that moment, it didn’t matter. All that mattered was confronting the man who betrayed his trust, and as he raises his mic to speak, it’s all he can think about.)
Chris Elite: Honestly, I’m just gonna get straight to the chase here. No fluff. No extra stuff. I’ve been fuming ever since last week, and I got a lot that I need to get off of my chest right here, right now.
Chris Elite: See, I tried to give Joso the benefit of the doubt. I didn’t wanna buy into the whole idea that he had some kind of grudge against me. We’ve been watching each other’s backs ever since KAI-ZEN thought they could make an example out of us, and while our alliance wasn’t gonna last long, I at least thought that Joso respected me as much as I respected him. I never wanted us to be besties or anything like that; I wasn’t in the camp of having him following me or whatever wild-ass shit he said during that interview. I just wanted him to make sure that if push came to shove, he’d be by my side pushing right back. That’s all. It wasn’t like I was asking him to give me the moon or anything like that. I just needed someone I thought was real to back me up. However, that was a mistake on my part.
Chris Elite: I thought Joso was cool. I thought he was different. Maybe I fell into the hype as well. If there was anyone I wanted to help me hold my own against those boys, it was him. For a while, it worked like that. However, things changed, and he wanted to switch up on me for the dumbest things possible. I thought he was better than that, but nah, he isn’t. Everyone propped him up as being in a different league of his own, but now I see him for what he really is. He’s an insecure, jealous brat, and at this rate, I’m through playing peacekeeper with him. He wanted to betray my trust, my respect, and all for what? For Tyrone? Can’t be, because unlike him, I actually fought for him. But now he wanna peddle back and act as if I’m in the wrong when he never gave a damn to back him up himself.
Chris Elite: Matter of fact? Maybe the sign was there all along. Bro wanna talk like a knock-off Malcolm and Viz, and I get that a lotta the boys wanna bite their flow, but Joso? He was never honest. No, he was tight with me because he didn’t get his opportunity after House of Glass, and now he wants to act all sour and bitter. He can’t be real or upfront. I shoulda know he’d be snake when he played in my face like that, but hey, I guess things like that can go under my radar. It’s cool, though. The most important thing is that I know now, and as I stand here, I’m honestly just ready to whoop some ass.
Stew-O: Wait, he wants to fight him? As in, right now?!
(Chris looks serious too, turning his attention directly towards the stage.)
Chris Elite: No talking. No explaining. I don’t give a damn anymore. There’s no more tryna keep things cordial between us. Despite my best efforts, Joso threw all of them away. So, we ain’t gotta waste time. Joso been wanting to be froggy with me, so I say he should go ahead and leap. He been wanting to do it for a long ass time, so why not get it over with? You aren’t gonna be acting all slick either, Joso. Come out now and stop with these games! If you were bold enough to attack me from behind, then you should be bold enough to step up to me directly. Be a man and stop being a little bitch!
Flannery McCoy: 😳 Yeeeaaaaaah, there’s no cooling down this beef between them.
(Chris paces back and forth, amped up as can be, ready for Joso. It takes a minute, but soon, ‘Trophies’ by Drake hits. The fans offer a mixed reaction, possibly more boos than cheers, a first time ever for the New Era. However, the crowd doesn’t faze Joso as he steps out on stage. A microphone already in his hand, he looks Chris up and down from the distance. He then shakes his ehad, walking down the ramp.)
Joso: Well, it ain’t take you that long to get heated, huh? Now you know how I feel, at least.
Chris Elite: :jr: The fuck you mean?
(Joso stops on the ramp, scoffing.)
Joso: What I mean, dummy, is that now you know how I’ve been feeling after all this time. I’ve been frustrated and annoyed in my own right ever since House of Glass ended. I’ve definitely been annoyed with your ass. You’re the one out here who’s expecting me to come rescue you each and every week when we’ve been told each other that that ain’t gonna be the case. The moment we beat KAI-ZEN, that was that. But you wanted to act like some hurt ex-girlfriend hitting up my line about how I still gotta worry about what your dumbass gets up to. Ain’t you a big man, Chris? You can handle yourself, right?
Chris Elie: I am, but it’s the principle of it all–
Joso: Man, shut up! There ain’t no damn principle! We’re through! We aren’t friends! We aren’t allies! And I definitely wouldn’t wanna keep a coon around in my corner, either.
Chris Elite: Me, a coon? Now you’re tripping.
Joso: You are. Tyrone lost his job because of you, but you weren’t all that shaken up over it, ‘cause you quickly went back to your usual ways. You’re fake as hell, so why would I have someone like you around me? Everything about you is just off, and that’s why I stopped fucking around with you especially. You’re wild grimey.
Chris Elite: Coming from a guy who attacked me and cost me a match.
Joso: And I’d do it all again because you deserve it. ‘Sides, there’s no room for Chris Elite in today’s EAW. You’re washed. You have no worth or use. Meanwhile, with Joso, there’s plenty of mileage left…
(The fans offer a mixed reaction.)
Joso: Point is, this place could use me. However, you outstayed your welcome. It’s a new era here, and I’m leading it. We don’t need some has-been who can’t even stand firm on his morals leading the charge here.
Chris Elie: Oh, yeah? How about I just lead the charge right here, right now and whoop your ass?
(The fans cheer, liking the sound of that!)
Stew-O: Oh boy, we might see a fight here! Joso and Chris are looking at one another intensely!
(Joso shakes his head.)
Joso: Word? You sure you won’t hurt that back of yours, Unc? :mjlol:
Chris Elite: I’m sure, but imma break you the fuck down for ever thinking you can fuck with me, pussy.
Joso: Alright then. Bet!
(Joso throws down the microphone and runs to the ring!)
Jake Mercer: YES, HERE WE GO! JOSO COMES IN AND HE MAKES A BEELINE TOWARD CHRIS! THEY START SLUGGING IT OUT, THROWING PUNCHES IN ALL DIRECTIONS!
Stew-O: THEY’RE GOING AROUND THE RING! JOSO TACKLES CHRIS AND TRIES TO MOUNT HIM, BUT CHRIS IS ABLE TO GET BACK UP AND GRABS HOLD OF HIM! THIS IS JUST A NASTY FIGHT HERE!
Flannery McCoy: JOSO AND CHRIS ARE GOING AT IT! THEY ROCK EACH OTHER WITH THOSE SOLID ATTACKS! AND IT LOOKS LIKE JOSO MIGHT BE GETTING THE BETTER OF THIS EXCHANGE! HE FLOORS CHRIS ELITE WITH A FOREARM, SENDING HIM DOWN! NOW, JOSO HITS THE ROPES—
Stew-O: BOX OFFICE SMASH! BOX OFFICE SMASH! CHRIS ELIT POPPED BACK UP AND CRASHES HIS FOOT AGAINST HIS JAW! JOSO IS ROCKED!
Jake Mercer: AND CHRIS RUNS FORWARD, HITTING HIM WITH ANOTHER BOX OFFICE SMASH! MY GOD! JOSO GOES STUMBLING INTO THE ROPES AND COMES BACK…
Stew-O: A THIRD BOX OFFICE SMASH! JOSO GOES COMPLETELY OUT!
(Joso crumbles down onto the mat, knocked out. Chris Elite yells at him, looking down at a man he used to trust laying in a heap before his feet.)
Stew-O: TALK ABOUT GETTING YOUR LICK BACK! CHRIS ELITE SENDS A CLEAR-CUT MESSAGE TO JOSO HERE TONIGHT! HE ISN’T PLAYING ANY GAMES, AND JOSO COULD RUE THE DAY HE EVER GOT ON HIS BAD SIDE!
(The shot focuses on Chris standing over Joso before Dynasty fades to commercials.)
(A commercial plays Call of Duty Warzone, featuring Bronson Daniels and Michael Machina.)
Stephie Love: This match is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘il vento d’oro’ by Yugo Kanno hits the speakers as MITSU makes his way onto the ramp. He isn’t in a good mood, doing his signature taunt not as upbeat as usual. He continues down to the ring.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, from Sōka, Saitama, Japan… Weighing in at 187 lbs… The Golden Doyen… MITSUUUUUUU!
Stew-O: MISTU walked away from last week’s edition of Dynasty by being kicked out of KAI-ZEN by being stomped out by every single one of its other members. Mig, Shinzo and Tohru relentlessly stomped out the man and left him to lay in his own failures outside of their locker room. Ricky said it himself, MITSU seemed to have been the weak link and in their eyes, he was unable to keep up with the rest both in effort and in success. Tonight, he faces the very man that they attacked to form the group!
Jake Mercer: At some point, you gotta ask yourself if you are the problem and I don’t think MITSU did. He’s got nobody but himself to blame for being kicked out of the faction that was supposed to bring him to stardom. He thought it was the easy way out, but there wasn’t anything easy about that road. He promised to put in the effort needed and ended up showing that he wasn’t able to!
(‘El Gavilan’ by Luis R. Conriquez, Peso Pluma, y Tony Aguirre fades in from the previous theme as Roberto De La Rosa makes his way onto the ramp. He’s joined by La Familia as he hits his signature taunt, with way more enthusiasm than MITSU.)
Stephie Love: Introducing second, from Hidalgo, Mexico… Weighing in at 225 lbs… El Padrastro… ROBERTO DE LA ROOOOOSAAAAAAAAAA!
Flannery McCoy: Well, whether it’s MITSU’s fault or not is for the people involved to decide, all I know is that Roberto is getting his chance at payback for being ruthlessly attacked by MITSU and the others at Territorial Invasion. He looks ready to make that man go through nothing but hell for the pain he caused him at the event, this time without KAI-ZEN being here to help! But also, Roberto is looking to gain momentum for La Familia with their disputes with the Jaded Hearts!
Stew-O: Let’s see if Roberto can enact revenge and gain momentum tonight or if MITSU can prove to Ricky that he was wrong in his judgment call! Whoever wins this does massive things for themselves and both of them are going to need it in their current stories! But only one of them can walk away to progress their story in a positive light and the other is going to have to go home with nothing!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Flannery McCoy: And we get right here into the action, MITSU getting ready in his corner and adjusting his knee pads while Roberto is already looking like he is ready to strike. The Golden Doyen now gets up from the adjusting and looks to approach De La Rosa but— OH MY! SPEAR RIGHT OFF THE BAT! ‘Talon De Águila’ takes down the former KAI-ZEN member and now Roberto is screaming that this is for Territorial Invasion!
Jake Mercer: Roberto picks up MITSU and grabs him from behind to put his head under his arm. He smirks as he sets up for it very early on! And he flips over forward… He hits it already! ‘El Último Deseo’ already! That Front Flip Inverted DDT spikes MITSU’s head into the ring and De La Rosa scurries into the cover afterwards!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stephie Love: Here is your winner… Roberto De La Rosaaaaaaa!
Stew-O: Well that was fast! MITSU was taken down almost instantly! I think Roberto has successfully both taken revenge by humiliating the man that attacked him but also gotten momentum by breezing through the competition! Hey- wait! Roberto is signaling for La Familia to get into the ring.
(Roberto De La Rosa signals to La Familia before pointing at the one man that is down in the ring. They all start to stomp out MITSU, just like Roberto was at T.I.)
Flannery McCoy: Just like how KAI-ZEN did it to De La Rosa himself, it’s now happening to MITSU with nobody to help him!
(La Familia keeps the attack ongoing, before suddenly the crowd pops. That’s because the Jaded Hearts are seen storming down to the ring.)
Stew-O: I don’t think they’re here to help MITSU, but they are here to be the saving grace for him!
(The Jaded Hearts slide into the ring, La Familia quickly retreating because of it and slowly making their way to the ramp to go backstage as they stare at Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade in the ring. The scene fades out as the tag team champions lean on the ropes and hold their titles high above their heads, both teams exchanging words with each other.)
(A commercial plays for Snickers.)
(Friday Night Dynasty comes back from a brief intermission as the sounds of ‘It Ain’t Safe’ by Skepta begins to play through the speakers, the crowd erupting into deafening boos as Charlie Marr makes his way out from the backstage area. He has a smirk on his face as he looks around before beginning to make his way down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… EAW HALL OF FAMER!!!!!!!!!! CHARLIE MARR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Last week we saw Charlie get a win over Ruler to advance to the finals of the Cash in The Vault tournament. Tonight he looks to make his arrival to the Dynasty brand to confront his opponent for the match.
Flannery McCoy: Shinzo Sasaki of KAI-ZEN got a victory over Donovan Duke to reach the finals, and now the two of them will face at Road To Redemption to see who will be the new Cash in The Vault briefcase holder. Charlie certainly is hungry for an opportunity like this, and looks to express it tonight.
Jake Mercer: :francis: The last time Charlie was on the Dynasty brand he gave us irreversible trauma because of how mediocre he turned out being. Let’s hope things are different this time around because I actually like Charlie.
(Charlie makes his way up the steel steps and into the ring, making his way over and taking a microphone from the ringside area. ‘It Ain’t Safe’ begins to come to a close from there as Charlie stands at the center of the ring, beginning to speak.)
Charlie Marr: How long has it been, Friday Night Dynasty?
(The crowd boos loudly for the EAW Hall of Famer, they’re clearly not very receptive of him right now and he knows it.)
Charlie Marr: I know, I know. The last time I was a full-time member on this brand, we left it on a sour note. I was in a dark place in my career, and anyone could tell I wasn’t at my best due to a who’s who of things. But even then I knew that there would come a point where Charlie Marr came into form, and you would see the best of him given he takes the time that he needs to recuperate and rest his mind. But when I did return from my brief excursion, did this place welcome me back? Absolutely not, I was shunned off to Saturday Night Showdown instead, where I had to start from the ground up even though I was more than entitled to what I felt I was due. Even then, with the odds stacked against me, I got to the place that I’m in now. Many wins and a title reign later, I return to the brand that left me to die and I’m going to show it what it has missed out on, regardless of who steers the ship around here. You might think that you have everything that you could possibly need but the one mistake that you made was not putting stock into Charlie Marr before it was too late. Now I show exactly why something like that will be a detriment toward you when I rip any sort of aspirations that you have of housing the next Cash in The Vault briefcase holder away from you and taking it to my home on Sunday Night Voltage instead.
(Charlie gives a piercing stare into the camera, the crowd continuing to boo as he continues to speak.)
Charlie Marr: But I have other things to talk about, more specifically the opponent that I’m going to meet in the finals of the CITV tournament, and that’s Shinzo Sasaki. Admittingly, I didn’t know what a KAI-ZEN was nor did I give a shit until I saw two of their members’ names alongside mine in the bracket. Even though my victory in this was guaranteed, I had to take into account the competition I was going to end up facing, especially the person that I was going to meet once we reached the final stretch. So let’s talk about Shinzo, let’s talk about him and the rest of his shiny new toys in that group. Let’s call it what it is, I don’t really think much of them, and truth be told I am far from buying into any of their hype as a stable. I’ve been in this situation before, one versus many, more times than you can count, and it doesn’t matter much if it’s Shinzo by himself or he along with the rest of KAI-ZEN trying to stack the deck against me, we all know the truth. That no matter how much they try, they’re never going to surpass me in their wildest dreams. Even the sole name value of Charlie Marr trumps all three of them tenfold, and I would love, absolutely love, to see them try and prove me wrong at Road To Redemption. But even then I doubt it, and it won’t be long before the image of me holding the Cash in The Vault briefcase high in the air is embedded in your-
(Charlie is swiftly interrupted as ‘Loose Change (Instrumental)’ by The Alchemist is heard playing through the speakers of the arena. The camera goes over to KAI-ZEN’s Shinzo Sasaki as he slowly begins to make his way out with Ricky by his side. Both sport business apperal along with smug expressions. They eye an unamused Charlie inside the ring, as the two from there begin to make their way down the ramp.)
Stew-O: Shinzo got here tonight by beating Donovan Duke to advance to the finals of the CITV tournament. A major win for the KAI-ZEN member that is sure to give him a boost heading into an arguably bigger challenge that is waiting ahead in the form of one Charlie Marr.
Flannery McCoy: They don’t seem to at all be intimidated by his presence, and given the impact that the group has made on this brand already, they look to cement their status not just in one facet of the game but the entirety of it as well.
Jake Mercer: I personally believe that KAI-ZEN is the biggest faction in the ENTIRETY of EAW! Devolution who? WE DON’T KNOW ‘EM! I hold a certain fondness in my heart for them, and I believe that if there is ANYONE that can win this tournament, it’s the main man Shinzo Sasaki!
(Shinzo jumps onto the apron and enters into the ring, while Ricky at the same time makes his way up the steel steps. The two CITV tournament finalists meet face-to-face, as Ricky makes his way around both of them and takes a microphone from the ringside area. ‘Loose Change (Instrumental)’ begins to come to a close as from there, Ricky begins to speak to Charlie.)
Ricky: Charlie Marr, you’re in over your head trying to fight a battle that you simply cannot win. The preconceived notion is that even now in your current state you’re a Hall of Fame competitor, and realigning your focuses has allowed you to harness that completely. While you may have fooled everyone else into believing that with your run in the Cash in The Vault tournament, we’re not falling for it. You haven’t been the same person that you once were in a long time, and maybe if that was otherwise you’d be in a different position from where you are now, but you’re still here, having to prove yourself amongst people who you believe are beneath you. This isn’t a Charlie Marr who has it all figured out, who is in his best form, this is a Charlie Marr who THINKS that he does and that influences every decision that he makes. It’s gotten to your head, and at Road To Redemption when Shinzo Sasaki halts all the momentum that you have in its tracks, there will be no excuses that you can make other than this being foretold from the very beginning.
(Charlie can’t help but chuckle at that, looking at Shinzo who hasn’t taken his eyes off of him before looking back at Ricky.)
Charlie Marr: This is what we’re going to do? You’re going to speak for him? That’s fine, but at least if you’re going to do that come with some new material. I’ve heard it all before, Ricky, given the situation that I’ve been in, why wouldn’t I? The opinion that I don’t have it in me anymore, that maybe I’m not the same person that I was. For a moment I bought into that narrative, and that led to a low point in my career once more this Season filled with failures and tragedy. You think I don’t know what people are going to say about me looking at that? I knew I had to do something, and I did, and that’s why you fucking see me in the position that I’m in right now. Regardless, no matter what form I’m in, I still beat out Shinzo and anyone who’s going to try and take this opportunity away from me. Yes, I’m “down here” fighting for chances that should have been warranted for me from the very beginning, and at Road To Redemption I’m going to show just how wide the margin is between myself and the competition.
Ricky: I don’t think so, Charlie. It’s been a long time since you’ve even sniffed a World Championship and that is not because of some outside force that has been preventing you from doing so, no, it’s because you haven’t been good enough. You’re trying to catch lightning in a bottle, relive the magic that was your glory days, but now you realize just how difficult something like that is when you just do not have it in you anymore. The Charlie Marr of old is gone, and replaced by one who has to lie to himself in order to feel better. Tell me, is that something that you’re proud of? Is that something that you’re going to hang your hat on when it’s all said and done? Because that’s what I don’t get Charlie, I don’t understand this facade when it comes to you.
Charlie Marr: There is no facade, and you can continue to ride that home all you want but what happens at Road To Redemption is going to happen for a reason. I don’t necessarily think that beating Shinzo here is going to instill faith into my nonbelievers, but what will is when I hold whatever World Championship I so choose above my head once I cash in the Cash in The Vault briefcase. That can only be done by getting past you, and I’ll do so by any means.
(Ricky smirks, as he looks over and hands the microphone to Shinzo.)
Shinzo Sasaki: I tip my hat to you, Charlie, you’ve played your part. You’ve gotten this far, and you made people believe that maybe you do have a chance. But against a force as strong as KAI-ZEN, it is not something that is simply contained on Dynasty, but rather a force felt by the entirety of Elite Answers Wrestling. This is a warning not just to you, but to everyone else, and when KAI-ZEN has a hold of the Cash in The Vault briefcase and a future World Championship, you will see just how serious we are.
(Charlie crosses his arms, not really taking the threat of KAI-ZEN all too seriously right now despite their warnings. He brings his microphone up to his mouth, a sly smirk present on his face while he does so.)
Charlie Marr: I-
Stew-O: OH! FROM BEHIND! PRINCE TOHRU! MIG DE DECKER! WE WERE WONDERING WHERE THE REST OF KAI-ZEN WERE! THEY JUST ATTACKED CHARLIE!
Flannery McCoy: THE TWO OF THEM ARE STOMPING DOWN ON THE HALL OF FAMER AND SHINZO IS QUICKLY JOINING IN! KAI-ZEN ARE ATTACKING CHARLIE IN A 3-ON-1 SITUATION AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THAT HE CAN DO! JUST LOOK AT RICKY WITH THAT GRIN ON HIS FACE WHILE THEY DO! THIS IS A STATEMENT MADE HEADING INTO ROAD TO REDEMPTION! THEY’RE OUT TO PROVE A POINT!
Jake Mercer: :blessed:
Stew-O: SHINZO IS BARKING ORDERS NOW AS TOHRU AND MIG BRING CHARLIE BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AS THE VOLTAGE ELITISTS STRUGGLES TO ESCAPE THEIR GRASP! THEY SHOVE HIM RIGHT INTO SHINZO, WHO SETS HIM UP…
Flannery McCoy: BEFORE TAKING HIM DOWN WITH ‘MADVILLAINY’! WRIST CLUTCH EXPLODER SUPLEX CONNECTS LAYING OUT CHARLIE COMPLETELY AND IT’S KAI-ZEN THAT TAKE THE FIRST SHOT TONIGHT!
(Shinzo gets up to his knees, dusting himself off as he looks down at the body of a hurt Charlie Marr on the ground. He gets back up to his feet, regrouping with the rest of KAI-ZEN along with Ricky, as the last shot is of the group standing over Charlie in triumph while Friday Night Dynasty begins to fade to elsewhere.)
(A commercial plays for Just For Men, featuring Charlie Marr.)
Stephie Love: The following match is scheduled for one fall…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(The lights suddenly go out, enveloping the stage in darkness. As “Arkadia’ by BABYMETAL “ plays, like stars in the night sky, circular spotlights come to life, casting their glow upon Mig De Decker and Prince , who stand shoulder to shoulder. Ricky takes center stage, flag in hand, and as the electric guitar crescendos, he hoists the KAI-ZEN banner high. Simultaneously, the stage erupts in a burst of fiery red pyrotechnics. Together, they stride confidently down the ring, a unified force with Ricky proudly waving the KAI-ZEN flag at their side.)
Stephie Love: INTRODUCING FIRST…STANDING AT A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 300 POUNDS…MIG DE DECKER & PRINCE TOHRU! KAAAAAIIIII-ZEEEEENNNN!!
(As Prince Tohru and Mig settled in the ring, their music faded out, and out came their two opponents Cody Maverick and NOVA with ‘Lord Knows’ by Drake (feat. Rick Ross) blasting. NOVA’s eye rolled, watching Cody Maverick walk down the ramp confidently — mouthing off at the crowd!)
Stephie Love: AND THEIR OPPONENTS…STANDING AT A COMBINED WEIGHT OF 425 POUNDS! CODY MAVERICK AND NOVA!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Flannery McCoy: These two have fought in the past only for their differences to get in the way. Let’s see if they can work together and knock off KAI-ZEN! NOVA starting off for his team and Tohru starting off for his own. A fierce collar and elbow tie-up has both competitors grappling for dominance— A POWERFUL SHOVE from Tohru, pushes NOVA away, sending him rolling and swiftly back on his feet! The strength displayed seems to catch NOVA off guard, yet his determination remains. NOVA boldly advances, initiating yet another collar and elbow tie-up with Tohru. The two athletes find themselves once more in the center of the ring!
Jake Mercer: NOVA QUICKLY SWITCHING IT UP! Now, he’s hoisting his adversary up for a powerful BELLY TO BELLY OVER HEAD SUPLEX! Slamming him hard onto the mat! NOVA can get really aggressive, just look into his eyes — a fire is raging in his pupil. Calling him up, stalking his opponent- PICKING HIM BACK UP FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX! Dropping Tohru on the back of his HEAD! NOVA has full control over this match and he isn’t willing to— wait a second?! Ricky helping Tohru out of the ring! Giving him much-needed separation. NOVA sees this and is livid. Ricky is always there to assist KAI-ZEN.
Stew-O: Not something NOVA takes kindly to! NOVA bounces off the ropes looking for a SUICIDE DIVE- NO A KICK TO THE FACE BY MIG! Stomping him before he could make it through the second rope! Prince Tohru taking advantage, locking his head under his arms, AND SPIKING HIS HEAD WITH A DDT TO THE APRON! Any control NOVA may have had, it’s gone now. Tohru getting NOVA back in the ring for a pinfall…
Jake Mercer: NOVA just barely getting his shoulder up! That had to be complete instincts NOVA isn’t seeing much of anything right now. Does he even know what planet he is on? I’m sure he’ll tell you, Pluto. But it doesn’t seem like Prince Tohru cares, dragging him into the corner and tagging in Mig De Decker! Tohru holds NOVA into the corner— MIG DE DECKER USING HIS BODY AS A PUNCHING BAG! Vicious shots to the body, you can see the bruising! A KNEE FOR GOOD MEASURE! They aren’t going to allow him to get any sort of breather. Smart strategy but it’s honestly really hard to watch. ESPECIALLY WITH MIG CONTINUE HIS ASSAULT WITH FOREARMS IN THE CORNER!
Stew-O: The official is stepping in looking to get some order but it doesn’t seem like Mig De Decker cares. Going back on the— KICK TO THE FACE BY NOVA! Finally getting enough space, he is going for a CLOTHESLINE! MIG DUCKS IT! HARD CHOP TO THE CHEST BY MIG! You can hear it echo throughout the arena! Mig Irish whips him to the ropes! NOVA rebounding back into a DROPKICK! Laying NOVA out once again! Mig taunts Cody — too far to even think about a tag! AN ELBOW TO THE ARM OF NOVA! KAI-ZEN is making a statement!
Flannery McCoy: Mig is looking to do some type of tag team move on NOVA again, standing him back up, and— NOVA SHOVES MIG AWAY! MIG BUMPS INTO HIS PARTNER KNOCKING HIM OFF THE APRON! HE IS FINALLY GOING TO MAKE THE TAG TO HIS PARTNER! Mig realizing what is happening! Charging towards NOVA HOPING TO INTERCEPT— NOVA STUMBLES HE MIGHT NOT MAKE IT—
Stew-O: CODY IS OFFICIALLY IN! Clocking Mig in the mouth as NOVA rolls out the ring and lays on the floor! Getting into the ring, CODY SENDS LEFTS AND RIGHTS TO DE DECKER! QUICK IRISH WHIP! REBOUNDING INTO A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE! CODY KIPS UP! A MAN ON FIRE! HE MIGHT BE UNTOUCH— TOHRU ENTERS THE RING!
Jake Mercer: BUT IS IMMEDIATELY THROWN OUT! There is nothing stopping him! Cody looks back at MIG who seems to be having conversations with Ricky. CODY DOESN’T CARE! DRAGGING HIM AWAY BY THE LEG! CODY IS NOT LETTING UP! STOMPING HIM OUT!
Flannery McCoy: Oh no, look at Ricky trying to get Cody’s attention. CODY DOESN’T— NO CODY IS LOOKING TO INITIATE! This is exactly what Ricky wants giving Mig a chance too— CODY GRABS RICKY BY THE COLLAR! THIS MIGHT NOT BE WHAT RICKY WANTED!
Stew-O: BUT IT MIGHT BE! MIG FROM BEHIND— CODY QUICKLY MOVES OUT THE WAY! MIG KNOCKS RICKY OFF THE APRON! MIG IS SHOCKED— “LIGHTS OUT” SUPERMAN PUNCH SHOCKS HIM EVEN MORE! Cody is on the verge of victory— WAIT TOHRU IS BACK!”
Jake Mercer: NOT FOR LONG! CODY WITH A “SIN CITY STUNNER!” KNOCKING TOHRU OUT OF THE RING! CODY GETS BACK INTO HIS CORNER LOOKING FOR MIG TO GET BACK UP AFTER THE “LIGHTS OUT”!
Flannery McCoy: NOVA TAGS HIMSELF IN! ALMOST LIKE THE LAST TIME THEY FOUGHT KAI-ZEN! Cody getting a taste of his own medicine but is now the right time to be petty? NOVA is practically on his last leg! Cody seems to want to argue but he remembers what happened last time! CODY IS GETTING OUT OF THE RING! He is going to allow him to pick up the victory…
Stew-O: NOVA stays on the apron, despite the trauma to the head— HE SPRINGBOARDS INTO THE RING AND— GETS CAUGHT WITH “THE STIFFEST DAMN PUNCH IN THE WORLD”! DROPPING HIM LIKE A FALLEN SACK OF ROCKS! MIG QUICKLY GOT HIM UP AND DROPPED HIM WITH A “BUTTERFLY EFFECT”! HOOKING THE LEG, THE REFEREE COUNTS!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…THE TEAM OF MIG DE DECKER AND PRINCE TOHRU! KAIIIIII-ZEEEEEENNNN!!
Jake Mercer: NOVA wanted to be petty so Cody went lower, watching KAI-ZEN get the victory. Good effort from both of them but it seems like their differences aren’t yet settled to be a team.
(As KAI-ZEN leaves, Cody gets back into the ring and starts yelling at NOVA who is struggling to get back to his feet. They both began to argue, NOVA pushing Cody and Cody pushing back!)
Flannery McCoy: Looks like a brawl is breaking out! Cody and NOVA starting to fight it out! THESE TWO MAN HAD ENOUGH OF EACH OTHER! CODY GETTING THE UPPER HAND, GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET—
Stew-O: WHAT THE HELL?! “BULLET FROM HELL” BY MICHAEL MACHINA TAKING OUT CODY MAVERICK! WHAT THE HELL IS HE— SPEAR TO NOVA AS WELL!
Jake Mercer: THE NEW BREED CHAMPION LAYING OUT BOTH MEN!
(Michael Machina looks down at both Cody and NOVA, laid out in the ring. The camera pans on his angered face, the scene fades to black…)
(A commercial plays for Subway, with Ronan Malosi convincing Andre Walker to eat the tuna sub. If he doesn’t show up for his match against Cameron Ella Ava this week on Voltage, then you all know why.)
(As Dynasty faded back onto the air, a local competitor was seen standing in the middle of the ring pacing around. She had a wide smile on her face just to be here tonight, as Stephie Love was seen standing in the middle of the ring with a microphone.)
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: One fall!
Stephie Love: Introducing first, from RIGHT HERE in Paradise, Nevada… Christie Stratus!!
Stew-O: I have heard a lot of things about this competitor from the local areas of Nevada. Do you think that she could pull an upset off here tonight?
Flannery McCoy: Well, anything is possible here in EAW, and I don’t think that this is going to be any sort of exception; but we’ll have to wait and see.
Jake Mercer: But, look at who she is facing tonight… an Elitist who will be competing in the Specialist Chamber in just a couple of weeks. I personally don’t think it is going to be looking too good for her here tonight. :lupe:
(And then, ‘Monsters’ by Currents would hit the speakers of the arena to an explosion of boos, as Rory Slate would make her way out and onto the stage. She saw who was standing in the ring and just had a smirk on her face, as she began to make her way down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: And her opponent! From Chicago, Illinois, weighing in tonight at 138 pounds, she is The ‘FALLEN ANGEL!!!!!’ RORYYYYYY SLATEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: After finding her way of qualifying into the Specialist Chamber match just a couple of weeks ago for Road To Redemption, I’m sure that Rory Slate is looking to send some messages and make some statements to all of her opponents within the same match.
Flannery McCoy: She has already made a statement just a couple of weeks ago when she brutally blindsided the Specialist Champion herself from behind. Rory is proving herself as a huge threat, and she’s going to continue that tonight.
(Rory would make her way into the ring, backing into her corner as ‘Monster’ would then fade out from there. She continued to smirk to herself, seeing the underlying fear on the face of her opponent tonight. She knew this was going to be a breeze.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: And here we go! This local competitor in Christie Stratus is looking to make a huge statement here tonight in her hometown, and what better way to be able to do that than by beating somebody like Rory Slate, who will be competing for the Specialist Championship very soon?
Flannery McCoy: WELL I THINK THIS TEST FOR CHRISTIE IS GOING TO PROVE DIFFICULT, AS RORY SLATE INSTANTLY PUSHES FORWARD AND CATCHES HER WITH A SHOTGUN DROPKICK INTO THE CORNER! Christie goes down and she lands hard into the corner and then the mat, as Rory pulls her out, AND SHE BEGINS TO BATTER HER WITH VICIOUS MMA STYLE STRIKES!
Jake Mercer: Rory Slate is showing a side to her that we have never seen before as she picks Christie Stratus back up to her feet by the hair… BEFORE RAMMING HER SHOULDER FIRST AS HARD AS SHE POSSIBLY COULD INTO THE STEEL RINGPOST! That could have dislocated her shoulder, as Christie is already hurting early on in this match!
Stew-O: AND RORY SLATE WASN’T DONE EITHER, PULLING HER BACK… AND INTO A MASSIVE BACKSTABBER!!! THE BACKSTABBER CONNECTS, AND CHRISTIE GETS DRIVEN RIGHT INTO THE KNEES OF WINDY CITY SADIST! Rory Slate is on fire here tonight against this homegrown Nevada talent, and she is showing zero remorse to her!
Flannery McCoy: Christie Stratus hasn’t even been given a chance to breathe in this match, as Rory picks her back up to her feet… BEFORE SHE DROPS HER WITH ‘SLATE’S ARROW!!!!’ THE HALF NELSON BACKBREAKER CONNECTS, BUT SHE ISN’T DONE THERE, AS SHE THEN GETS HER OPPONENT ONTO HER SHOULDERS…
Jake Mercer: AND SHE RUNS HER OVER INTO THE CORNER TURNBUCKLES WITH A HUGE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER; ‘CELL BLOCK SIX’ BRUTALLY CONNECTS!!! Rory pulls Christie out of the corner, and she drops down into the cover, hooking the leg and seizing a very dominant win here tonight over her opponent!
Stew-O: Did she… did she just stop the cover? :comeagain:
Flannery McCoy: Rory Slate pulled Christie Stratus back up into a seated position by the hair, and it looks like she wasn’t even done just there, as she quickly rips her right back up to her feet… AND SHE PULLS HER INTO A DOUBLE ARM TRAPPED, LOOKING TO END THIS!
Jake Mercer: AND SHE DOES EXACTLY THAT; PLANTING HER INTO THE MAT WITH THE DDT!!! ‘GTFO’ CONNECTS! Rory Slate just spiked Christie Stratus onto her head, and into the mat, and she rolls her over, hooking the leg once more, and this time around I do truly believe it’s over!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER; RORYYYYYY SLATEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: And Rory Slate ets a dominant win here tonight over the undefensive Christie Stratus!
Flannery McCoy: From that opening shotgun dropkick to the very brutal ending of three big moves, Christie Stratus did not stand a chance whatsoever, and you have to wonder if that was a message well sent to her opponents of the Specialist Chamber match in just a couple of weeks.
Jake Mercer: But guys, I don’t think that Rory is done inside of the ring just yet, as she is calling to be handed a microphone! I personally wonder what she has to say here.
(Before Rory’s theme would even begin to blast throughout the speakers of the arena, she would call for a microphone from the timekeeper. She is given exactly that, as she stands up to her feet, and she kicks Christie Stratus carelessly out of the ring, showing little to no remorse.)
Rory Slate: Listen, I know that there are going to be a lot of Elitists as a part of this Specialist Chamber match at Road To Redemption; five others in fact excluding myself, and six including. With that being said, I am personally looking forward to making sure that none of those five other participants, including the champion herself, even think that they are going to be walking out of that Elimination Chamber in just a couple of weeks with the win, especially if it is going to be at my expense in the process. It just isn’t going to happen, and I am going to make sure of that, whether the people like it or not.
(Rory smirks as she continues to be showered with boos.)
Rory Slate: That’s exactly why I took out the Specialist Champion herself in Bea Valentine just a couple of weeks ago on Voltage. It was to prove a statement. That I’m not just an easy competitor to beat, and I am more than just Michael Machina’s girlfriend. I am proud of him for how far he has come, how he has won the New Breed Championship and all, and now? It’s my time to do exactly that. It’s my time to show up, to show out, and to become the Specialist Champion by any means necessary. You people need to put some respect on my fucking name and stop thinking that just because I want to naturally succeed with him that means I’m only good for being his second place.
Rory Slate: It’s been #RoryAll this season, and the girls need to remember there is a reason why I’ve been positioned as the next big thing when it comes to women’s wrestling in EAW. As a matter of fact? Scratch that – I’m the next big thing period, and there is nothing that anyone is going to be able to do to stop that. Yeah, maybe I lost to Ms. Extreme at Reckless Wiring, maybe I already failed in a shot at becoming the Specialist Champion in the past and took the pin in said match, but that doesn’t mean anything anymore. It’s the past. Now we’re looking at the present, we’re looking into the future of this company, and the future of this company is me. I’m persistent, and stubborn as can be. The fact that I still find a way to earn these opportunities is a testament to that.
(Rory takes a second to pause, letting it sink in.)
Rory Slate: After all, I won the fatal four way match at Territorial Invasion to get my shot at the Specialist Championship for House Of Glass. After all, I still qualified for the Specialist Chamber even after failing to capture the championship at House Of Glass. And tonight, I gave the whole world a stark reminder that you should never count out Rory Slate. I can easily dominate the competition, and that’s what I seek to do as I personally promise to wipe out all of the women in the chamber and walk out of Road To Redemption as champion.
Rory Slate: In the end, each and every single one of you is going to have to accept the reality that is going to show clearly in the light amongst it. That after Road To Redemption in just a short couple of weeks, it’s not going to be “#RoryAll” anymore. It’s going to be “#RoryChampion.”
(And just like that, Rory would throw the microphone down to the mat, as the crowd continued to shower her with boos. ‘Monsters’ would hit the speakers once more, as Rory would celebrate her victory, with Dynasty fading right over into commercial break from there.)
(A commercial plays for Road to Redemption.)
(‘Pride and Arrogance’ by Takeru Kanazaki would hit the speakers of the arena to a deafening reception consisting of entirely boos. The Future, wearing one of his opulent three-piece suits, walked down the ramp with a microphone in his Rolex-adorned hand.)
Stephie Love: Please welcome to the ring at this time… he is ‘THE FUTURE’…. DRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAKE! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARMSTROOOOOOOOOOOOONG!
Jake Mercer: Once again, the Future graces us with his presence! I hope I get to chat with him after the show, imagine if I get close with a family as filthy rich as that!
Flannery McCoy: No matter how much money he has, it looks like he can’t buy any morals; just recently, he attacked Cy Henderson from behind!
Stew-O: Well, Cy already put out a challenge for Road to Redemption last week; let’s see what Drake has to say for himself in response.
(Drake Armstrong enters the ring and dusts off his polished dress shoes before taking a moment to bask in the boos of the crowd. He brought the mic up to his mouth and smirked as he began to speak.)
Drake Armstrong: Sounds like the unwashed masses aren’t very pleased to see me! No worries, I didn’t come out to seek your worthless approval; however loudly you try to drown me out, my brilliant voice will cut through it all! Ultimately, I didn’t force myself to the inaccurately named city of Paradise to speak about any of YOU peasants; no, I came to address the man that’s made it his mission to be a thorn in the Future’s side in recent times. I’m talking about the peasant known as the Cyclone, Cy Henderson – and yes, I said PEASANT! Whatever legacy you have behind you, whatever titles you’ve won in years past, whatever status you hold with the filth currently sitting in the audience, it doesn’t change my view of you as just another member of the riffraff.
Drake Armstrong: Keep in mind that you involved yourself with me of your OWN volition. I had intended to make my way back to you, but you decided to speed things up by coming out to save Jordan Nar-whatever on that fateful episode of Dynasty. Never have I born witness to a lamb so eager to sprint towards the slaughter! You interfere with MY business, you get up in MY face and you disrespect ME? Let’s be completely honest here, Cyclone, you got LUCKY that I only went as far as I did when I planted your head with the Death Penalty. I should have gone further! But alas, it doesn’t seem to matter now, as that very same lamb has come back begging to extend his punishment. You want a match with the Future at Road to Redemption? Ahahaha, can’t say I’m particularly surprised.
(The sheer arrogance exuding out of Drake Armstrong provoked the crowd further, to the point where they looked about ready to start pelting him with whatever food they could find.)
Drake Armstrong: I’m not surprised because the fact of the matter is that you NEED this from me! I am the Future, which means I EMBODY the future of this brand, this company, and this entire industry! A forlorn and shriveled relic like yourself, looking to make a new legacy in a new era, it’s only understandable that you’d cross paths with the Future! So you want my answer, Cy? You want to know what Drake Armstrong has to say? Well, in truth, I have no reason not to oblige your request. Because while you’re looking to make a statement at my expense, this is all going to end up with you laid out at my feet; at your expense, I won’t be making a mere statement, my victory will spell out an entire NOVEL! Call it the Legacy of Drake Armstrong, where you will end up as a footnote of my early career. To the question of whether Drake Armstrong vs Cy Henderson will happen at Road to Redemption, I say YES! I just hope you’re fully prepared to regret going down this path in the first place.
(Before Drake could continue his egomaniacal speech, “Tupac Back” by Meek Mill feat. Rick Ross starts playing as Cy Henderson enters the arena to immense cheers from the crowd before he heads straight to the ring.)
Cy Henderson: Drake, I’m definitely happy that you accepted my challenge, but I can’t say I’m surprised. In all my years of wrestling, in all my years of living, I find it hard to think of people I’ve met that are more deluded than you. You’re deluded enough to think that attacking me from behind my back will accomplish anything other than making me more motivated. But even more than that, you’re deluded for thinking that I don’t have what it takes to beat you. My return to Elite Answers Wrestling hasn’t been perfect, but I showed that I can go toe to toe with the best this company has to offer.
(The crowd cheered heavily for Cy Henderson’s courage; he took a moment to appreciate them before continuing to speak.)
Cy Henderson: You hear that, Drake? That’s a little something called respect, and it goes both ways. Just as much as these people respect me, I respect them back. But that’s something you just don’t understand, is it? You think you can walk around because of your rich upbringing and say or do whatever you want to WHOMEVER you want without any consequences. You walk out here every week and insult these hard-working people to their faces. The cheap shots, the arrogance, the disrespect, everything you do frustrates me. But on behalf of these people, I’m going to shut your mouth in a matter of a few weeks. I showed at House of Glass that I’m not going to let anyone just step over me; just because Ronan lucked into his wealth by lottery doesn’t mean you lucking into your wealth by birth will change anything.
Cy Henderson: If you want to make me your stepping stone, Drake, you’re going to have to step higher than you’re able, because I won’t fall to you now or ever. I won’t let you get away with what you’ve do-
(Before Cy could finish his sentence, though, Drake shoved the mic out of Cy’s hand and forced it down to the ring mat.)
Stew-O: Oh, it looks like Drake had heard enough as he silenced Cy by force! These two are having a heated argument out of the mic’s range, but by their facial expressions alone you can tell these two men absolutely hate what the other is about!
Flannery McCoy: Drake held up his hands and it seems as though he’s just leaving the situation behind as he starts to walk away… NO! Drake threw a sucker punch at his opponent! But Cy Henderson had Drake’s dirty tricks scouted and ducked before throwing a few strikes of his own!
Jake Mercer: Both of these men are throwing lefts and rights, they don’t seem to want to wait until Road to Redemption! It looks like Drake is trying to do a repeat of two weeks ago as he goes for the Death Penalty!
Stew-O: But Cy is able to get out of it and hoist Drake up on his shoulders! The crowd here in Nevada is going wild as they see that Argentine Backbreaker Rack; they know what’s coming!
Flannery McCoy: RISING TIDE! CY HENDERSON LANDS IT! Drake Armstrong has been laid out after attempting to provoke the Cyclone! Will this be the scene we see at Road to Redemption?
(Cy stands tall over Drake as Dynasty fades to commercials.)
(A commercial plays for Arby’s, featuring Milli Banks.)
(Dynasty returns to its live broadcast. Stephie Love is seen in the ring, ready to kick off the next match!)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen… The following singles match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
(‘They Call Me A God’ by NEFFEX starts to play through the arena as some fans cheer while others boo while Ms. Extreme makes her way out of the entrance way and starts making her way to the ring.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first… From Clabasas, California… Weighing in at 140 pounds… She is “The Problem Child”…. MS. EXTREMEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Stew-O: It seems Ms. Extreme is motivated here tonight to pick up some momentum and perhaps send a message to Milli Banks here tonight as both elitists have had issues with each other lately and things don’t seem like they’ll be settling anytime soon.
Jake Mercer: Listen, elitists are always going to have issues, and that’s just a fact here in EAW. The thing is sometimes you have too much on your plate like here tonight when Ms. Extreme faces off against a bloodthirsty and hungry elitists in LILITH and I believe we see a victory for this up and rising New Breed talent ladies and gentlemen!
(As Ms. Extreme makes her way inside the ring, her theme fades out, and is replace with ‘What Makes You A Man’ by The Ninth Wave as LILITH makes her way down the entrance way as she has an eerie grin on her face almost like she’s ready to deliver and receive pain here tonight.)
Stephie Love: Introducing her opponent… Residing in Brasov, Romania… Weighing in at 113 pounds… She is the “Queen of The Damned”… LILIIIIIIIIIITH!!!
Flannery McCoy: LILITH had an opportunity last week on Voltage to qualify for the EAW Specialist Elimination but sadly she was beaten after a back and forth contest by SALLY. Tonight, she has an opportunity to pick herself back up after a big loss like that by picking up a massive win against a talent like Ms. Extreme!
Jake Mercer: I believe we can see that here tonight especially with someone as unpredictable like LILITH plus she doesn’t have anything to think about unlike Ms. Extreme with her current issues brewing up with Milli Banks here on Dynasty!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: Both elitists start to circle each other inside the square ring as the bell rings and they both go for an Elbow-and-Collar lock up as Ms. Extreme gets the advantage and starts to slowly force LILITH down to the ring mat. LILITH however fights back as she pushes through and gets back on both feet as both elitists struggle as neither seems to want to budge. Ms. Extreme however let’s go quickly causing LILITH to stumble forwards a bit as she turns around and is greeted by Ms. Extreme attempts to hook her into a Franksteiner as she successfully is able to connect and spike LILITH’s head down the mat! She’s not done as she quickly picks LILITH back up from behind and holds her in for a German Suplex that plants her in the middle of the ring! Ms. Extreme now starts working on LILITH’s leg as she drops a couple of elbows on it to try slowing her down and preventing her from using the skies against her, but it seems that rather than wincing at the pain she- she seems to enjoy it? It doesn’t bother Ms. Extreme or she doesn’t notice as she quickly starts to make her way to the top rope as she’s looking to take the skies for her own benefit as she goes for a Shooting Star Senton on the downed LILITH…
Jake Mercer: LILITH with her knees up as Ms. Extreme falls back first onto them causing her to wince in pain while LILITH watches on satisfied with what she just caused, but the pain has only just begun as LILITH quickly lays Ms. Extreme down with a Soccer Kick to the head as she goes down! Quickly, LILITH runs the ropes as she uses the ropes to try and hit Ms. Extreme with a Springboard Moonsault as she beautiful connects with it, much like when she did her first Springboard Moonsault back in Romania where she resides in, I mean those Romanians sure do know how to make some of the best wrestlers I have ever seen, and as the one true wrestling connoisseur in EAW, you know that’s but a fact! Not that that’s important right now as Ms. Extreme tried to sit up after that Moonsault that landed right on her gut, but LILITH was prepared for it as a Basement Dropkick puts Ms. Extreme right on her back while LILITH takes a second to look at her opponent in pain right now. She smirks a bit before she starts to climb the top rope as she’s attempting to show Ms. Extreme here how it’s REALLY done when you go for risky moves off the very top of the turnbuckle!
Flannery McCoy: Romanians? Something is definitely wrong with you Jake, but I am not paid to diagnose you as LILITH takes a dive from the top rope and goes for a Shooting Star Press, but Ms. Extreme pulls herself out of the way using the ropes for help as LILITH lands face first on the mat! Ms. Extreme is able to roll out of the ring as she grabs LILITH and pulls her out with her, Ms. Extreme now starts unleashing a barrage of Punches as LILITH tries to escape from them, pushing Ms. Extreme away, but Ms. Extreme quickly runs back towards her direction and hits her with a quick Dragonrana that sends her flying right into the barricade! As the referee is about to commence the count, Ms. Extreme rolls back in as she starts to run the ropes, and as LILITH is regaining conscious and stepping away from the barricade she’s quickly sent back into it as Ms. Extreme connects with a Suicide Dive as LILITH is sent right back to the barricade while Ms. Extreme stands on her own two feet after the successful dive. She quickly picks up LILITH as she tries to Irish Whip her back inside the ring…
Stew-O: LILITH however puts her weight down as she instead Irish Whips Ms. Extreme onto the barricade as the referee continues the count while LILITH starts unleashing Knee Strikes to the head of the downed Ms. Extreme trying to show the whole world that she doesn’t just love taking the pain but dishing out the pain as well. LILITH now starts to slowly pick up Ms. Extreme from the ground as she grabs her from behind, she starts to set her up, and she connects with a German Suplex that sends her right onto the apron! That’s the hardest part of the ring dammit!
Stew-O: We’re up to a six count and if both these elitists don’t get inside real soon, we may have a double count tie here as LILITH rolls back inside the ring and rolls back out, she breaks the count as she intends to inflict more pain on the outside, and starts to slowly pick Ms. Extreme once again! LILITH goes for a Uranage on the apron again… but Ms. Extreme with an elbow to her face preventing her from fully lifting her up as Ms. Extreme instead goes for a Uranage of her own, slamming LILITH back first on the apron, and quickly throws her inside the ring!
Jake Mercer: Ms. Extreme either used her veteran skills to get out of that or got lucky against LILITH and I believe it to be the latter, but that doesn’t really matter right now as LILITH is starting to get back up as Ms. Extreme is on the outer part of the ring apron waiting for her to fully get up. As LILITH is back on her two feet, Ms. Extreme uses the ropes as she’s looking to connect with a Springboard Arm Drag as she successfully hits it sending LILITH down to the mat, but she quickly gets on her knees. Ms. Extreme was ready however as she runs towards the ropes once again and as LILITH gets back up she is quickly back down on the mat with a Springboard Bulldog from Ms. Extreme!
Flannery McCoy: Ms. Extreme has a huge opening here as she attempts to pick LILITH back to her feet, but LILITH is able to roll her up into a Small Package as she goes for a pinfall!
Flannery McCoy: Ms. Extreme with a kick out before ur can be a full count, but LILITH is not wasting a single minute here as she grabs Ms. Extreme from her arm and goes for a Short-arm Clothesline that takes her down as LILITH quickly heads to the corner and climbs to the top rope as she goes for a Shooting Star Press that successfully connects this time! LILITH is giving it everything she has trying to put down Ms. Extreme for good as she slowly picks up Ms. Extreme and quickly hops on the middle rope before connecting with a Tornado DDT! Ms. Extreme is somehow up on her feet dazed and confused as she’s on rubber legs as LILITH is looking to connect with a spear as she goes for “HAIL MARY”!
Stew-O: Ms. Extreme using the momentum from the “Hail Mary” Spear against LILITH as she lifts her up connecting with a flawless Fisherman Suplex in the middle of the ring, but Ms. Extreme isn’t done just yet as she rolls through with LILITH still in her grasp back on her feet quickly transitioning from a Fisherman Suplex into an Exploder Suplex that sends LILITH close to the turnbuckle! Ms. Extreme sees an opportunity open up as she starts to quickly make her way to the turnbuckle and slowly starts to climb to the rope rope, she looks at the downed LILITH, and takes a dive as she’s looking to another Shooting Star Senton and she lands it perfectly as Ms. Extreme goes a quick cover now!
Jake Mercer: LILITH with a kick out before the three count, Ms. Extreme with a smirk on her face, because she knows it’s still a bit early as she starts to slowly pick up LILITH. “TWIST OF FATE” AS MS. EXTREME GOES FOR A SPINNING NECKBREAKER, BUT LILITH IS ABLE TO QUICKLY PUSH MS. EXTREME OFF HER! Ms. Extreme rebounds off the ropes and LILITH quickly puts her down with a vicious Spinebuster as an eerie grin can be seen emitting from LILITH’s face! She’s enjoying taking Ms. Extreme to the limit as she starts to deadlift Ms. Extreme from behind as she positions her for a German Suplex that she connects with right in the middle of the ring before quickly heading to the corner! She starts yelling for Ms. Extreme to get up and LILITH looks almost excited for what’s she’s planning as Ms. Extreme slowly gets up groggily and is QUICKLY put down with a “Hail Mary” Spear from LILITH as she goes for the cover!
Flannery McCoy: A kick out from Ms. Extreme at the right time as the match continues and she still has an opportunity to send a message to Milli Banks here tonight! LILITH angrily picks up Ms. Extreme as she throws her towards the rope and as she rebounds, LILITH is looking to connect with “Fall of Babylon” as she pops Ms. Extreme up from her feet looking to execute her Pop-Up Powerbomb finishing move, but Ms. Extreme reverses it into a Frankensteiner that spikes LILITH on her head as she makes her way to the top rope while LILITH resiliently tries to get back up, still groggy from being spiked on her head. Ms. Extreme takes the chance and dives from the top rope as she connects with a Diving Calf Kick that plants LILITH right on her back, Ms. Extreme is looking to end things now as she picks up LILITH and connects with a “Twist of Fate” as the Spinning Neckbreaker connects and she quickly covers LILITH! Is this all she rode here tonight?!?
Jake Mercer: LILITH KICKS OUT AS SHE STARTS TO ROLL AWAY TOWARDS THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, BUT MS. EXTREME PULLS HER BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS LILITH IS ABLE TO KICK HERSELF OUT OF MS. EXTREME’S GRASP BUYING HER ENOUGH TIME TO QUICKLY RUN TOWARDS THE ROPES AND CONNECT WITH A SPRINGBOARD CUTTER! MS. EXTREME IS DOWN AS LILITH CONTINUES TO UNLEASH KNEE STRIKES TO THE DOWNED MS. EXTREME BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS! I THINK WE MAY BE IN THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR MS. EXTREME! LILITH NOW GOING TO THE TOP ROPE AS SHE’S LOOKING TO FLY!
Flannery McCoy: MS. EXTREME NOW GETTING BACK ON HER FEET AS SHE’S LOOKING FOR A TORNADO DDT, BUT MS. EXTREME IS ABLE TO GRAB HER MID AIR FOR A NORTHERN LIGHT SUPLEX AS SHE QUICKLY TRANSITIONS INTO “RED QUEEN’S RAMPAGE” AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A TRIFECTA OF KNOCKOUT SLAM SIGNATURE MANEUVERS BEFORE SHE PICKS UP LILITH, IRISH WHIPS HER TOWARDS THE ROPES, AND “HOLY GROUND” CONNECTS AS THE LEAPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP STOMPS LILITH TO THE GROUND! MS. EXTREME NOW WITH THE COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: Here is your winner… She is “The Problem Child”…. MS. EXTREMEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Stew-O: What a great match between both these elitists, but at the end of things Veteran Skill out beat the tenacity and unpredictably of LILITH here tonight as Ms. Extreme picks up a win sending a message to Milli Banks that she is more than ready to take her on!
Jake Mercer: We all know that LILITH had this won, but I suppose Veteran Skill is what we call getting lucky ya know? Either way, LILITH showed that she has what it takes to hang with the very best in EAW!
Flannery McCoy: I hate to somewhat agree with you, but you’re right about LILITH showcasing that she’s got what it takes to be a big time player, it’s just about time, and dedication. Congratulations to Ms. Extreme for the win here tonight and hope to see more from LILITH in the near future!
(Ms. Extreme is seen walking out confidently after picking up a win here tonight while LILITH is seen sitting at the corner with a smile on her face as the scene fades out elsewhere.)
(Backstage, Kensingten Calhoun-Astor and Richard Grant are in their office. Holding hands, the shot focuses on the promise ring that sparkles on Kensingten’s finger from afar.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Yesterday was a lot of fun, Richie.
Richard Grant: Was it? I’m glad you enjoyed yourself, Kensi. I really wanted it to be perfect for you.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Aww, everything you do is already perfect enough for me. However, hearing that makes me appreciate it even more. You are far too sweet.
Richard Grant: Gotta spoil my girl, especially when she has to meet my family.
(He offers a gentle peck to her cheek, causing Kensingten to giggle.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: I must say, I can see where your manners come from. Your family did right by you. I can see where some of that charm might have rubbed off on you.
Richard Grant: Oh? Eyeing a replacement already?
(Richard snickers. Kensingten rolls her eyes, but she can’t help but laugh along with him.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: No way. You’re the only one I want, Richard. After all…
(She steps closer, locking her fingers around his shirt collar. She pulls him in, having their bodies meet.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: You were the one who charmed me first.
Richard Grant: Well, I know how the charm the pants out of a lady.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Yeah? Wanna test that out?
Richard Grant: You know I’m always up for that—
(Just as they turn their heads, they see the camera.)
Camera Person: (off camera) …hi.
(Kensingten and Richard quickly get off of each other, straightening out their clothes and gathering themselves.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Good evening to you.
Richard Grant: Yes, sonny, good evening. You could’ve knocked, but this is a wrestling show, and business comes first. Besides, there is news we’ve been meaning to share tonight, so might as well get that out of the way.
Camera Person: :mjgrin:
(Richard clears his throats. Both managers collect themselves, switching to a more professional tone as they speak.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Richard is right, but no, it’s not that kind of news. This announcement is quite important, and I’m sure many Elitists and those of you watching will be more than pleased about it.
Richard Grant: Absolutely. It’s safe to say that this new era of EAW has been flourishing. When it comes to the Dynasty side of things specifically, this show has been able to grow. More viewers, more talent coming in and being featured, more opportunities being presented, everything that could’ve gone right has gone right with this show. With Tyrone Montgomery suspended, this ship is being steered in the direction it was always meant to go.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: It’s been beautiful to witness. Ever since Tyrone was first to move away from his post, things have been great. It may not have been the most… popular decision, but Richard and I promised that we were going to ensure that Dynasty remained the premier show on weekly EAW television, and I like to think we’ve been able to do just that.
(Kensingten and Richard look at each other, smiling briefly. They then bring their attention back over to the camera.)
Richard Grant: And like we’ve said, EAW has a whole has grown. That is why this news we’re about to announce will be huge for every talent signed here. Road to Redemption is in two weeks, and everyone is looking to end things off with a metaphorical bang as the halfway point of the season arrives. So, I think this news will be of interest to all of them, because this has the potential to put some of our brightest and talented stars on the map, giving them a breakthrough moment that they may have been needing.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: We aren’t blowing smoke either. We truly mean it. Just like with the Cash in the Vault tournament, we’ve had talks with Captain Charisma and Kennedy Street about this match. Granted, it’s something you guys may be already familiar with, but it’s still an ever-important match, and considering how it even came to be, this isn’t your typical match. This is a match of great importance. It shouldn’t be taken for granted whatsoever.
Richard Grant: And that match in question? The Extreme Enigma Memorial Battle Royale.
(The fans in attendance cheer. A thunderous applause almost rocks the arena to its core.)
Richard Grant: Extreme Enigma was an icon in every sense of the word. He redefined the path that many today walk on, and he has laid the foundations for many Elitists whether they realize it or not. He has been able to make something of himself and create so many memorable moments. In his memory and in his honor, the battle royale is meant to exhibit just that. He was able to make a mark in a land filled with giants, and at Road to Redemption, one Elitist will be able to do the same thing for themself. It’s an exciting prospect.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: EAW is the land of opportunity for a reason. However, not only is this a big match for any Elitist looking to solidify their spot here, this match in particular will commemorate almost a decade since Extreme Enigma’s passing as he sadly left us in 2014. It’s honestly insane to think that he’s been gone for that long… however, his legacy and impact hasn’t been lost to time. It has only grown. EAW has always been committed to honoring people like him and ensuring their contributions to this promotion and sport is never forgotten about. This match is the perfect way to remember someone as endearing and memorable as Extreme Enigma.
Richard Grant: Beautifully said, Kensingten. We get to honor an icon and possibly witness the birth of a new one all in real time. You can’t ask for anything better than that.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: No doubt about it. Now, as we mentioned earlier, Elitists from all three brands will be competing, so this will be as stacked of a match as possible. Participants will be announced at a later date. I suggest that those who do find themselves in this match take this bout seriously. An opportunity of this magnitude doesn’t come often and shouldn’t be taken lightly whatsoever. Otherwise, you may have to wait a little longer before you ever get a chance like this again.
Richard Grant: Road to Redemption is already shaping up to be a big show. However, this match completely elevates it. We can’t wait to see every Elitist go hard in the match, paving way for their own legacy to be created while remembering the incredible legacy of Extreme Enigma.
(The two Dynasty GMs smile before the shot fades from the office. The camera then captures the fans, who are all cheering for the late Extreme Enigma.)
Stew-O: WHAT HUGE NEWS INDEED! THE EXTREME ENIGMA MEMORIAL RETURNS, AND WHAT A MATCH TO ADD ON TO ROAD TO REDEMPTION!
Jake Mercer: With the insane amount of promising talent that has flooded EAW in recent months, this could easily be the best one we’ve had yet! Wow! I’m looking forward to this match!
Flannery McCoy: Same sentiments here, Jake. We’ve had some future champions win this very same match, so like Kensingten said, this is something that cannot be taken lightly. Whoever wins will be able to catapult their career into the limelight, and this can be something huge for them to build off of!
(The camera then shifts away from the commentary team and cuts to Stephie Love in the ring.)
Stephie Love: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR… ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
(‘Zettai Zetsumei’ by Cö shu Nie plays out Rory Slate, who saunters down the ramp, taking glances at the EAW audience, who continues to boo her, especially as she’s set to go up against fan favorite, Milli Banks.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first! Hailing out of Chiba, Japan, weighing in at 170 pounds…SHE IS THE APOTHEOSIS…AIRI EVERGARDEN!
(‘Changed It’ by Nicki Minaj feat. Lil Wayne. Plays next, receiving an extremely positive reaction, and Milli Banks struts down the ramp, mouthing the lyrics to her song along the way. Milli is also visibly a bit wary, keeping an eye out for Ms. Extreme, knowing she could attack anytime, especially after last week.)
Stephie Love: And her opponent! Hailing out of Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 135 pounds…SHE IS THE SUPERNOVA…MILLI BANKS!!
(Both competitors stare one another down from opposing corners as the referee signals the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: Alright, here we go! Milli Banks taking on AIRI Evergarden. As we stated, a huge opportunity for AIRI! Both competitors circle each other, and engage a collar and elbow tie-up in the center of the ring. AIRI gains the upper hand, backing Milli into the corner, and keeping her pinned there, pressing her forearm into Milli’s jaw. The referee gets involved, trying to force a break, giving AIRI til the count of five.
Referee: ONE! TWO!
Flannery McCoy: AIRI eases up, and backs away from Milli, giving her space. Milli exits the corner, and both competitors circle each other for a second time. Looks like we’re going to see a test of strength as it appears both women are going to lock hands. BUT AIRI CATCHES MILLI OFF GUARD WITH A DROPKICK INSTEAD! AIRI RUSHES INTO THE COVER!
Stew-O: KICKOUT! Milli rushes to a knee, and locks eyes with AIRI, who rises to a knee as well. Both women stand themselves up at the same time, and circle one another again. AIRI and Milli start to close distance for another collar and elbow ti- NO! MILLI OUTSMARTS AIRI THERE, CATCHING HER OFF GUARD WITH A SCHOOL GIRL!
Jake Mercer: Kickout! AIRI makes it to her feet, and marches towards Milli for another collar and elbow! A jockey for position takes place, but AIRI gets the upper hand with a standing side headlock! Now, look at AIRI, wrenching on the hold, maintaining control over Ms. Milli Banks.
Flannery McCoy: Milli delivers a few forearms to the rib cage, loosening AIRI’s hold, and shoves her into the ropes! AIRI rebounds off, and delivers a SHOULDER TACKLE! Milli goes down, and AIRI quickly goes for a cover, hooking the leg!
Flannery McCoy: Kickout! Both women rush to their feet, but AIRI charges Milli with ANOTHER shoulder tackle! The cover is made, hooking the legs!
Stew-O: Kickout! Milli rises to all fours, but AIRI grabs her in a side headlock while she kneels next to her. Again, AIRI has regained control, but Milli starts to power back to a vertical base. Again, Milli starts to loosen AIRI’s grip with forearms to the rib cage, and pushes her into the ropes! AIRI rebounds off, and Milli proceeds to dropdown! AIRI is forced to leap over, and rebounds off the ropes a second time! Milli pops to her feet, and leapfrogs over AIRI!
Flannery McCoy: AIRI halts her momentum behind Milli, who turns around, and eats a big KICK TO THE GUT! Milli doubles over, and gets irish whipped to the ropes! AIRI GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE- BUT MILLI DUCKS UNDERNEATH, AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES FOR A HURRICANRANA!
Jake Mercer: AIRI rolls through to a knee, and Milli closes in- BUT AIRI LURED HER IN, AND PLANTS MILLI WITH A REVERSE STO INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE! Milli rolls away from the corner, clutching at her mouth and nose area before getting covered by AIRI!
Flannery McCoy: Kickout!
Stew-O: Ya know, we’ve mentioned it being a huge opportunity for AIRI, and she’s proven through her actions that she realizes that herself. She’s been real aggressive early going, barely giving Milli any breathing room, and going for constant covers.
Jake Mercer: If she keeps up this strategy, I can see Stephie Love going “HERES YOU-“
Flannery McCoy: Let’s just leave that job to her, okay?
Jake Mercer: :kyrie:
Flannery McCoy: AIRI pulls Milli back to her feet, and backs her into the corner before irish whipping her HARD into the opposite! Milli collapses down to all fours, favoring her lower back. BUT AIRI IS LIKE A VULTURE, SWOOPING IN TO SHOOT THE HALF FOR A COVER!
Stew-O: Kickout, only a two, reminiscent of before. Still, not looking to give Milli any space, AIRI applies a rear chinlock, staying on top of Banks.
Jake Mercer: The crowd is starting to rally behind Milli, wanting to see her fight out of this.
Flannery McCoy: Milli has to fight from underneath as she powers back to her feet again, and starts to loosen AIRI’s grip with back elbows to the gut. But AIRI responds with a CLUBBING BLOW TO THE BACK! Milli drops to both knees before all fours, still feeling pain in that lower back, having gotten whipped into the turnbuckles hard.
Stew-O: AIRI pulls Milli back up, and irish whips her into the corner. MILLI TRIES TO GO UP AND OVER, BUT IS THERE TO TRY AND STOP THAT! MILLI CATCHES HER IN A HEADSCISSORS, BUT AIRI TRIES SENDING MILLI UP AND OVER THE TOP ROPE! MILLI CATCHES HERSELF ON THE APRON, AND STAGGERS AIRI BACK WITH A FOREARM!
Flannery McCoy: MILLI GOES TO SPRING OFF THE TOP ROPE- BUT AIRI LUNGES FOR BANKS! MILLI LEAPS OVER AIRI’S HEAD, AND MILLI ROLLS THROUGH TO HER FEET! MILLI CHARGES AIRI, WHO TRIES FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT ITS DUCKED UNDERNEATH! AND MILLI SPRINGS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE WITH A CROSSBODY, HOOKING BOTH LEGS!
Stew-O: KICKOUT! See, this is EXACTLY what AIRI was trying to avoid. Milli is building momentum, and when she does that, she’s hard to stop. Milli pulls AIRI back to her feet, and goes to irish whip her off the ropes! But AIRI counters at the last minute, sending Milli to the ropes instead! AIRI ducks down, perhaps signaling early for a back body- BUT OOH!
Jake Mercer: WE’RE NOT GONNA FIND OUT WHAT SHE WAS GOING FOR AS MILLI DELIVERS A STIFF PENALTY KICK, JOLTING AIRI BACK UPRIGHT! MILLI RUNS OFF THE ROPES AGAIN- BUT RUNS RIGHT INTO A SAMOAN DROP! COVER IS MADE!
Flannery McCoy: SHOULDER UP!
Jake Mercer: Tell you what, guys, I did a great job at keeping my cool there, but it has to be stated. That samoan drop was impeccable, almost to the level of Andre Walker!
Flannery McCoy: Oh, pipe down. He’s not even here tonight.
Jake Mercer: I keep the same energy, whether he is or not.
Flannery McCoy: Jesus Christ.
Stew-O: Ignoring Jake’s dickeating disease momentarily, I’m focusing my attention back to the in ring action.
Flannery McCoy: As am I. Milli is beginning to stir, and AIRI looks down at her, possibly thinking about her next, which she may already have in mind as she pulls Milli back to her feet.
Stew-O: AIRI goes to lift Milli up for a suplex- BUT MILLI FLOATS OVER AIRI FOR A REAR WAISTLOCK! Standing switch by AIRI, applying a rear waistlock of her own. Milli charges the ropes, and drops down, sending AIRI out through the middle rope! Milli slithers out underneath the bottom rope, and eyes AIRI as she rises back to her feet.
Flannery McCoy: AIRI has no idea what’s coming, that is until she turns around, and eats a RUNNING CANNONBALL OFF THE APRON! Milli rolls AIRI back inside the ring, and Milli climbs up on the apron. This leads to her climbing up to the top turnbuckle, and turning her back toward AIRI. I’m guessing that Milli wants a moonsault- AIRI COMES FROM BEHIND, BLASTING MILLI IN THE BACK!
Stew-O: AIRI peels Milli away from the corner, having her in an electric chair position. She could be looking for Stellagrima’s Curse, which I’m sure Milli has connected, and begins fights back, PUNCH AFTER PUNCH TO THE DOME! AIRI DROPS TO A KNEE, AND MILLI RUNS OFF THE ROPES- BUT RUNS INTO A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION!
Flannery McCoy: AIRI GOES TO HOIST MILLI UP FOR A POWERBOMB- BUT MILLI SLIPS OFF AIRI’S SHOULDERS! AIRI SWINGS FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT MILLI DUCKS UNDERNEATH, AND GOES TO SPRING OFF THE MIDDLE ROPES- BUT AIRI SHOVES MILLI UP AND OVER THE TOP! MILLI HITS BACK FIRST ON THE APRON HER WAY DOWN!
Stew-O: As you said, Milli hit back first on the apron, and now finds herself writhing in pain. Wear and tear appears to be getting to AIRI a bit, who takes the fact that Milli is down to recover, catch her breath a bit. Milli’s a hard competitor to keep up with, but AIRI is finding that out.
Jake Mercer; Finally, AIRI exits the ring, and rolls Milli back inside. Milli rises back to all fours, and AIRI rolls back in the ring. Evergarden grabs Milli from behind, wrapping her arms around the waist, and pulls her up to a vertical base. AIRI GOES TO HOIST MILLI FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX!
Flannery McCoy: BUT MILLI DELIVERS A BACK ELBOW, STUNNING AIRI BEFORE SHE RUNS OFF THE ROPES! BUT MILLI RUNS INTO ANOTHER SAMOAN DROP, AND AIRI HOOKS THE LEG FOR A COVER!
Stew-O: SHOULDER UP! AIRI pounds the mat, showing slight frustration, but grabs hold of Milli as she gets to a knee, looking to pull Milli up to her feet. BUT MILLI EXPLODES WITH REPEATED FOREARMS TO THE FACE OF AIRI, LEAVING HER DAZED AND CONFUSED IN THE CENTER OF THE RING AS SHE RUNS OFF THE ROPES!
Flannery McCoy: AIRI RUNS OFF THAT SAME SET OF ROPES, AND MILLI TURNS AROUND, DUCKING DOWN, MAYBE SIGNALING A BACK BODY DROP! BUT AIRI AVOIDS IT AS SHE SUNSET FLIPS OVER MILLI, WHO ROLLS THROUGH TO HER FEET, AND DELIVERS A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO A SEATED EVERGARDEN! MILLI HOOKS THE LEG FOR A COVER!
Jake Mercer: NO! AIRI KICKED OUT! I was worried she wouldn’t for a second, for a while, she seemed down and out.
Flannery McCoy: I think she WAS down and out. That kick definitely knocked her loopy, which helped delay that kickout.
Stew-O: Milli gets to her feet as AIRI gets to a knee, and runs off the ropes! MILLI TRIES FOR A WHEELBARROW MANEUVER OF SORTS, BUT AIRI POWERS MILLI UP TO A BACK SUPLEX! BUT MILLI BACKFLIPS OUT OF IT, LANDING ON HER FEET! AIRI SPINS AROUND, AND DELIVERS A DDT BEFORE MILLI COULD STAND HERSELF UPRIGHT! COVER IS MADE!
Flannery McCoy: NEARFALL! AIRI stands Milli back up, and places her in the corner, beginning to reign down with punches! AIRI shows no signs of relenting as she beats Banks down to a knee with the onslaught! The referee gets involved, pulling AIRI away.
Jake Mercer: AIRI pushes past the referee, and closes in on Banks again. AIRI irish whips her to the opposite corner, then charges in! MILLI SCORES WITH A DROP TOE HOLD, SENDING AIRI FACE FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE!
Flannery McCoy: AIRI stands herself up, and staggers toward the ropes, still reeling after that head on collision with the turnbuckle. MILLI RUNS OFF THE OPPOSITE SET OF ROPES, BUT GETS SENT UP AND OVER THE TOP WITH A BACK BODY DROP! MILLI CATCHES HERSELF ON THE APRON, AND AIRI SPINS AROUND, CATCHING HER WITH A RIGHT HAND!
Stew-O: AIRI TRIES SENDING MILLI FACE FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! BUT MILLI GETS HER BOOT UP ON THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE, BLOCKING IT, AND DELIVERING A RIGHT HAND! AIRI GETS STAGGERED TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, AND MILLI CLIMBS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!
Flannery McCoy: AIRI RUSHES TO THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND TRIES TO HOOK MILLI UP FOR A SUPERPLEX! BUT MILLI BLOCKS IT, AND STARTS TO COUNTER WITH SHOTS TO THE BODY BEFORE GOURDBUSTERING AIRI DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
Stew-O: AIRI ROLLS ON HER BACK, FAVORING THE RIBS, AND MILLI PERCHES HERSELF ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE FOR NEW YORK HOSPITALITY! THAT SPIRAL TAP CONNECTS, AND MILLI HOOKS THE LEG!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: HERES YOUR WINNER.… MILLI BANKS!!
(‘Changed It’ by Nicki Minaj feat. Lil Wayne. Plays to a thunderous ovation, and Milli Banks rises to her feet as AIRI rolls out of the ring. Banks gets her hand raised in victory.)
Stew-O: And there it is, another win for Milli Banks, continuing to rack momentum.
Flannery McCoy: Similar to last week-
Jake Mercer: GUYS! SPEAKING OF LAST WEEK!
(The crowd reaction rises as Ms. Extreme slides in the ring.)
Stew-O: THATS MS. EXTREME!
Flannery McCoy: MS. EXTREME DOUBLE LEGS MILLI DOWN TO THE CANVAS, AND BEGINS REIGNING WITH PUNCHES!!
Stew-O: BUT MILLI ROLLS OVER, AND FINDS HERSELF ON TOP OF CAMILLE NOW, LANDING LEFTS AND RIGHTS!
Jake Mercer: MS. EXTREME PUSHES MILLI OFF OF HER! MILLI PULLS HERSELF UP USING THE ROPES, AND CAMILLE CHARGES IN!
Stew-O: BUT MILLI SENDS CAMILLE UP AND OVER HER SHOULDER TO THE OUTSIDE!
Flannery McCoy: MILLI ROLLS OUT AS MS. EXTREME USES THE BARRICADE TO PULL HERSELF UP! MILLI CHARGES IN WITH A CLOTHESLINE, AND BOTH COMPETITORS SPILL UP AND OVER INTO THE CROWD AREA!
(Milli continues punching at Ms. Extreme, but gets pulled over the barricade by security, who is looking to separate the two as the crowd boo while the camera fades elsewhere.)
(A commercial plays for Texas Roadhouse, with Jake Smith begging and leading Jon Kelton not to go there.)
(Friday Night Dynasty comes back from a brief intermission as ‘Prey’ by Parkway Drive is heard playing up, the crowd cheering loudly as the camera goes over to show Theron Nikolas as he makes his way out. He takes his Interwire Championship and raises it up into the air, before then beginning to make his way to the ring.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome… the EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!! THERON NIKOLAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Last week on Sunday Night Voltage we saw Jamie O’Hara’s match against Ronan Malosi being interfered with by Andre Walker. While it seemed like Ronan was going to pull away with the victory, it was Theron who came in and laid out Andre, distracting Ronan enough to get Jamie the victory.
Flannery McCoy: While I’m sure Ronan is not taking very kindly to that, tonight it seems Theron has come out to the ring to address everything. What does the Interwire Champion have in mind?
Jake Mercer: He should be STRIPPED of that title! Attacking Andre?! How could he! He should be ashamed of himself!
(Theron makes his way around the ring and up the steel steps, standing on the apron before heading into the ring. He makes his way up to the top rope, raising his title into the air, before ‘Prey’ comes to a close while he heads over to take a microphone from the ringside area.)
Theron Nikolas: Last week I took it upon me to go to Sunday Night Voltage to conduct some business. Admittingly, frustration has been building with the piling issues that I’ve had with Ronan Malosi, and frankly I figured that it was time to nip it in the bud. He and I are on completely opposite sides of the spectrum, and while I could have very well just let him be heading into Road To Redemption, it didn’t exactly sit right with me at all. Me interfering in his match against Jamie O’Hara and attacking Andre Walker, henceforth costing Ronan the match, was my way of forcing him back into the problem that he made. I’m looking to tie up some loose ends, and now that he started this, I am looking to end this once and for all.
(Theron’s words come with a serious look on his face as he adjusts the title around his shoulder. From there he continues to speak.)
Theron Nikolas: Needless to say a match against Ronan Malosi, specifically with the title on the line, would go exactly the way that most people think barring any funny business in between. But he doesn’t know that, someone like Ronan is blind to that idea because it doesn’t fit his image of what he perceives to be reality. It’s embarrassing, and frankly I know that he’s going to continue to run his mouth about it until the very end, so I would like to settle this as soon as possible. If you, Ronan, are really dying for a match against me, and if you really believe that just because you got one fluke win that the odds are in your favor, then come out to the ring and we can see just how serious you are.
(Theron turns to the stage, and almost immediately ‘Mo Money’ by Ben McLusky is heard blaring through the PA system. The crowd absolutely erupts with boos as the camera goes over to show Ronan Malosi as he makes his way out to the stage. He has a surprisingly serious look on his face as he heads down with a microphone already in hand, signaling for his music to fade as he from there begins to speak.)
Ronan Malosi: You have a lot of nerve, Theron, showing up on Sunday Night Voltage last week. I can look past you coming out and practically costing me my match against Jamie O’Hara, because at least Jamie can’t say he’s beaten me clean when he KNOWS that he can’t. But attacking my Kaiser is exactly where you crossed the line. If there’s anyone that should be taking this seriously, it’s you, because you know how serious of an offense attacking someone like Andre Walker is. There are serious repercussions for something like that and you know it.
(Ronan climbs onto the apron, eyeing an unimpressed Theron inside of the ring.)
Ronan Malosi: But if you want to have a conversation about taking things seriously, I’ll have you know that I am. Since the beginning of the Season with every match that I’ve had, knowing that The Kaiser may be watching, I’ve been serious. When I beat you a couple of weeks ago on Friday Night Dynasty and proved that I would be next in line for the Interwire Championship, I was serious. Now if we happen to face each other again, and it just so happens to be with that title on the line, I’ll show you just how serious I’ll be again when I take it away from you.
(Ronan smirks, clearly proud of what he’s saying while the crowd continues to boo him.)
Ronan Malosi: That title already eluded me once at Territorial Invasion, and I’m going to make sure that if I’m given another match for it, that it doesn’t happen again.
(Ronan gets inside the ring and gets into the face of Theron, the two of them meeting face-to-face. Theron, who doesn’t seem all that intimidated by him or frankly what he said, begins to speak.)
Theron Nikolas: You’re just as fragile as the same man that you happen to revere. I’m not shocked that he’s the person that you look up to as an example, because the same can be said for you when we talk about his impenetrable aura that shields nothing but a frail and brittle man underneath.
Ronan Malosi: Once again, you have a lot of nerve saying this! Do you know what Andre Walker has done to people?
(Theron shrugs his shoulders.)
Theron Nikolas: I told him the same thing to his face a week ago and I’m still here. But as much as I’m sure you’d like to, we’re not here to talk about him, we’re here to talk about you and your less than impressionable resume in comparison. The reason that you gave is exactly why I’m questioning if I should even bother with you, Ronan. You had your chance, it was right there in front of you at Territorial Invasion, and despite that you found yourself losing to the same man that I beat seemingly with ease at House of Glass. Entertaining any sort of challenge coming from you is playing into the notion that I suspected from the very beginning. You’re the proverbial rite of passage in anyone’s Interwire Championship reign, a test that most people if not everyone are expected to pass. Even if I try to fathom it in my mind, I find it very hard to believe that you’re going to size up to me in any sort of facet. So to ask me for an Interwire Championship shot is to shoot yourself in the foot once again and add to the long string of mistakes that have been made in your career. Besides, don’t you have the power of the Gawd Contract? Can’t Andre Walker and Albert Hitchman grant you anything that you wish at any given time? Tell me why you would even consider going through the trouble of doing all of this?
(Ronan continues to smirk, not taking much offense to what the Champion is saying right now.)
Ronan Malosi: I know there are a lot of doubts whether or not I’m going to be able to beat someone like you when it counts, but I don’t know if you know, but I thrive when my back is against the wall. I show the world my best when nobody believes in me, and my recent string of victories these past couple of months are proof of that. I’ve beaten Bronson Daniels, Jake Smith, Harper Lee, Holly Arrow, along with you, and as far as I’m concerned, I have absolutely nothing to prove. But if you really want to dig a hole trying to doubt me and my abilities, that’s fine, you’re just going to have to find out like everyone else that I mean business. Now you’re right that the Gawd Contract that belongs to The Kaiser could very well just give me this upfront, but I want to hear it out of your mouth so that there’s no level of uncertainty between the two of us. I will beat you, and maybe then, Eden and I can throw a proper baby shower in celebration.
(Theron raises an eyebrow, shaking his head before responding.)
Theron Nikolas: Once we face, the last thing you’ll need to worry about is a baby shower. Just remember that this is your grave that you’re digging, and if you want an Interwire Championship match at Road To Redemption, then you’ve got it.
(The crowd erupts in excitement as Theron maintains a serious look on his face, Ronan bearing a smirk on his face as the match is made official for the next Marquee Event. After sometime of the two of them staring off face-to-face, Ronan brings his microphone up to his mouth and begins to speak.)
Ronan Malosi: I’m glad that we could come to an agreement, Theron. Maybe then, once Road To Redemption is done, I can give my future daughter a new gift. Picture this, “My father beat Theron Nikolas AND is a two-time Interwire Champion”, you think all of that can fit on there?
(Ronan laughs to himself, Theron not all that receptive on the other hand.)
Ronan Malosi: Until then, you can count your days, Theron. You may not know it now, but maybe after I beat Xander Payne later on tonight, you’ll see just how much danger your title reign is in.
(Ronan drops his microphone down to the ground as ‘Mo Money’ begins to blast through the speakers once again. With a smirk on his face, he turns around and begins to make his way out of the ring. Theron watches his future challenger take his leave, a stern expression on his face as he clutches his Interwire Championship in his hands. It’s the last shot seen before Friday Night Dynasty from there begins to fade out to elsewhere.)
(Moving on from the segment, Michael Belfort is seen seated in a room. He looks directly at the cameras. Usually, the resident interviewer would greet the viewers at home and in attendance with a smile, but given the nature of the subject matter he’s assigned to discuss, he’s far more serious in his look.)
Michael Belfort: Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for tuning in. I’m Michael Belfort, and while I would be far more enthusiastic in my greetings, we have important matters to deal with. I’m here tonight to get a follow-up with Ryan Wilson in the aftermath of that harrowing scene so many witnessed last week on Dynasty.
(With him saying that the shot then transitions to a recap.)
[REPLAY – Xander Payne uses a spare key to get into Ryan Wilson’s house. He destroys many of the furniture, including some prized possessions, like Ryan’s award for Feud of the Year and his title case, including the New Breed Championship. Xander goes on a complete rampage. The house, which was considered empty, still contains Ryan’s family, who were hiding. Xander finds them, tormenting Ryan’s niece Sophia and his mother Magdalena. He smashes Sophia’s toys before Magdalena confronts him. She threatens to call the police, and that’s when he leaves… but not before pushing her into her wheelchair. Fortunately, she doesn’t fall or injure herself, but as Xander leaves, it’s clear that she and Sophia are mentally disturbed by the whole incident.]
(The replay ends, and the fans in the arena boo, absolutely disgusted by the horrid actions Xander took. Michael maintains his professionalism, though, getting straight to the point.)
Michael Belfort: It was a shocking thing to witness live, perhaps the most disturbing incident we have seen all year by far. Even now, the effects of it are still palpable. While Ryan Wilson’s family wasn’t physically harmed, they remain traumatized. In fact, Ryan informed Dynasty management he would be unable to compete this week due to his family’s immense distress. Still, he was willing to speak with me, and right now, Ryan is available live from his home.
(That’s when the screen splits. A live feed from Ryan’s home is broadcast. Ryan sits on a couch in his living room. The mess that Xander caused has been cleaned up. The fans cheer for Ryan, perhaps garnering the largest pop of the night.)
Crowd: RY-AN! RY-AN! RY-AN! RY-AN!
(Ryan nods, hearing the support from the fans. However, he doesn’t smile. A serious look blankets his face.)
Michael Belfort: First off, Ryan, thank you for being willing to talk to me about this. I can’t imagine this has at all been easy for you and your family.
(Ryan takes a deep breath and sighs.)
Ryan Wilson: Honestly, Michael? It hasn’t. We’ve been worried sick, losing sleep over this whole mess. Sophia can’t play with her toys. My mom feels like she constantly has to watch her back, stressing herself out more than her body needs. This whole thing has been a living, breathing nightmare for us. It’s taken a huge toll on our family and has been heartbreaking and frustrating to watch. I never thought that Xander would stoop to such low levels, but he did, and I’m just baffled by it. It’s one thing for him to continue harboring a grudge against me, but when it bleeds over to my family? That’s insane. He went too far, and that’s putting it lightly.
Michael Belfort: Of course, and plenty of people do sympathize with you, Ryan. However, my most important question is: are you guys doing alright?
Ryan Wilson: … from a physical standpoint? Yes. Xander put his hand on my mom, but she wasn’t hurt in the process. Sophia is fine as well. But mentally? No. Far from it. And it pisses me off to no end.
(A grim look takes hold of Ryan.)
Ryan Wilson: Honestly, I myself am not going to feel any better unless I get Xander back for all of this.
Michael Belfort: So, you have plans to pursue him?
Ryan Wilson: Of course, Michael. Why wouldn’t I? How couldn’t I have any thoughts for vengeance? Xander made this thing way more personal than it ever needed to be, Michael. Ever. He stepped out of line. He could’ve beaten me over and over again, just like he did many times over, but this? All of this? None of it needed to occur. However, Xander lost his mind, and now he’s opened up a can of worms he’ll never be able to seal back shut. You can mess with me, but you never mess with my family. They are strictly off-limits. I pride myself on being the workhorse for this brand, for this entire promotion, but I can’t wrestle because I have to watch over my family and make sure they’re taken care of. I can’t let anything happen to them. Xander has caused irreparable damage to them, to us, and I will never forgive him. He will have to pay the price.
(Ryan looks serious when he says that.)
Ryan Wilson: And trust me, he will pay in full. Xander isn’t going to get away with this.
Michael Belfort: Alright, so you want Xander to pay. However, will there be any police reports filed. I mean, he broke into your home, vandalized items, and while he didn’t hurt Magdalena, he put his hands on her, which would count as assault–
Ryan Wilson: No.
Michael Belfort: :lupe:!!
(Ryan takes another deep breath. This time, it was more shaky. Rigged. Anger courses within his veins.)
Ryan Wilson: That would just be the easy way out for him. I’m not gonna afford that to him. The only way justice of any kind is going to be served is through my hands, no one else’s. I don’t care if that puts me at risk. I’m going to do whatever it takes to make sure Xander pays for what he did. I don’t care if I get hurt in the process. He deserves what’s coming to him. Besides, after everything he’s done, I deserve to get my revenge on him, and I plan on making sure that it will be realized no matter what.
Michael Belfort: What exactly do you mean by th–
(All of a sudden, Michael Belfort goes down! Someone in a hoodie rushes on in, stomping down relentlessly on him, much to the shock of everyone watching!)
Stew-O: WHAT?! WHAT IS GOING ON?!! MICHAEL BELFORT IS BEING ATTACKED!!
Jake Mercer: MICHAEL CAN’T EVEN DEFEND HIMSELF! HE’S CRYING OUT FOR HELP!
Flannery McCoy: I CAN’T EVEN LOOK AT THIS! JUST WHO IN THE HELL WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS!?
(The attacker ceases. Everyone looks at the screen, completely mortified. They then push back their hoodie, revealing their maddened face.)
Stew-O: XANDER PAYNE!!! IT WAS XANDER PAYNE!!!
(Xander snarls and grabs hold of the camera, shouting towards it. Ryan shakes his head in anger.)
Xander Payne: LOOK AT THAT RYAN! LOOK AT HOW I WAS ABLE TO DISMANTLE HIM QUICKLY! YET, YOU THINK YOU CAN GAIN YOUR REVENGE OVER ME? HA! DON’T BE SO STUPID AND BOLD NOW! DON’T YOU SEE THAT I CAN DO THE EXACT SAME THING TO YOU?! HUH?!? JUST LIKE WHAT I’VE DONE TO YOU BEFORE, TOO! YOU WERE TOO WEAK TO DEFEND YOURSELF THOSE TIMES, SO WHAT WILL MAKE THIS ONE BE ANY DIFFERENT?!
Ryan Wilson: You are an absolute low life, Xander. You are pathetic in every sense of the word. You think you can intimidate me because you hurt someone who is completely innocent?! You’re insane! You aren’t tough at all!
Xander Payne: Me? ‘Not tough’? And yet, where are you? If you were this incensed looking to get back at me after everything, you could’ve came straight to me! In fact, if you were acually here, poor Michael here could’ve been saved!
(Xander points the camera down to Michael Belfort. Everyone gasps as a small gash is seen on his forehead. He is out cold.)
Stew-O: Oh god, that is just SICKENING! What is wrong with him?!
(Xander snickers. Then, it turns into a full-blown laugh.)
Xander Payne: He could’ve been saved, you know. You could’ve protected him. If anyone is the disgrace here, it’s you. You caused this, Ryan. All of this is YOUR fault. You should be ashamed of yourself!
Ryan Wilson: What’s there for me to be ashamed of, Xander? Hm? That I’m not lashing out against people who have no part in our business? That I’m not the one who decided to throw away our friendship? That I’m not the one who let his own selfish ambitions get in the way of a partnership meant for us to succeed together, where we would’ve thrived as a collective? Or that I’m not the one here dragging people’s families into this mess?
Xander Payne: How about the fact that your family’s pitiful disgrace for a breadwinner won’t be around to spend time with them when it matters to most and provide for them? Thanksgiving for us Canadians passed a while ago, but Christmas is coming up, isn’t it? Would be a shame if you weren’t able to make it there…
Xander Payne: Better yet, it’d be a shame if I finished the job from last week with your family.
(That’s when Ryan shoots up front on the couch, getting closer to the camera.)
Ryan Wilson: You will do no such thing, Xander! You aren’t going to be hurting them!
(Xander darkly chuckles.)
Xander Payne: So then, who will I hurt? You, or them?
(Ryan’s fists clench.)
Ryan Wilson: You can try and do your worst against me. In fact, going forward, I will have my family’s back no matter what. I wasn’t joking when I said I’d risk everything to protect and defend them. I meant it a hundred percent. In fact, Xander… since you’re so eager to try and destroy me, how about we stop with the games and quit stalling? I’ve got the perfect idea.
(Xander looks on curiously, listening to Ryan.)
Xander Payne: … Go on, then.
Ryan Wilson: You know, I can’t think of a better way to not only get revenge but celebrate with my family during the holidays than by giving them front-row tickets to watch me kick your ass. So, how about this, Xander: you versus me in an unsanctioned match at the Christmas Show!
(The crowd goes absolutely crazy for Ryan’s words!)
Jake Mercer: WAIT, WHAT?! HE WANTS TO FACE THAT MAD MAN IN A MATCH LIKE THAT?!
Flannery McCoy: Seems like it! He’s serious about it, too!
Stew-O: And Xander seems to be genuinely contemplating the idea!
(He was. Xander’s eyes slightly narrow in thought. He hums softly to himself, tilting his head back and forth as he dances around the idea.)
(Then, he grins.)
Xander Payne: Sure. That’s perfect with me.
Flannery McCoy: HE ACCEPTED IT! JUST LIKE THAT!
(And the fans somehow get louder, excited to see the two clash, but more importantly, see Ryan get his revenge against Xander!)
Xander Payne: But just know, it’s your funeral, Ryan. Mark my words.
Ryan Wilson: If it is, then I’ll make sure I drag you down to hell with me, enfoiré.
Xander Payne: Ha. I guess we’ll see for ourselves, won’t we?
(Xander smirks. The feed on his end then cuts off into static. Ryan sits back on the couch, letting all of the words they shared sink in.)
Stew-O: Well, that was intense, to say the least! However, it seems that Xander and Ryan have agreed to end things at the Christmas Show which will happen after Road to Redemption! In the meantime, we have staff currently rushing over to Michael Belfort to assist him medically.
Jake Mercer: The wrestling genius has turned into a mad man these past few weeks. Ryan was able to defeat Xander at House of Glass, but with this side of Payne emerging, you can’t help but wonder if Ryan is taking a huge gamble here. This is the most viscous we have ever seen the hall of famer!
Flannery McCoy: Perhaps. Still, Ryan is willing to take the fight to Xander no matter what. We will just have to wait and see whether it’ll pay off for him, or if Xander will get the last laugh in the end.
(The satelliete feed from Ryan’s home ends. The screen goes black as Dynasty fades to commercials.)
(A commercial plays for the EAW Christmas Show! It takes place in the Arena CDMX Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City, Mexico immediately after Road to Redemption!)
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Mo Money’ by Ben McLusky would hit the speakers to an explosion of boos, as Ronan Malosi makes his way out onto the stage. He looks focused tonight, as he would then begin to make his way down the ramp.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first! Residing in The Isle of Samoa, weighing in at 250 pounds, RONANNN MALOSIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Then, “It Follows” by Cane Hill would hit the speakers as the crowd would only continue to boo louder, as Xander Payne makes his way out shortly after. He looks like an animal who was ready to be unleashed, as he would then make his way down to the ring.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent! From Toronto, Canada, weighing in at 255 pounds, he is… XANDERRRR PAYNEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: And here we go! This match is underway, as both of these men are looking to gain some momentum ahead of Road To Redemption. Xander Payne and Ronan Malosi begin to pace around the ring, not taking their eyes off of each other for a single second… before they push forward and engage into a quick collar and elbow tie up to start us off, both men looking to fight for the early control of this match here tonight!
Flannery McCoy: But it looks like Xander Payne is going to manage his way into breaking through the collar and elbow tie up, and he pulls Ronan right over and into a standing side headlock! Ronan is caught within the headlock, as he has to quickly wrap his arm around Xander’s waist, pushing themselves up amongst the ropes as he slips out of the headlock, Xander bouncing off the ropes!
Jake Mercer: And Xander bounces off to the other side of the ropes, WHERE RONAN MALOSI DROPS HIM WITH HIS POWER GAME, KNOCKING HIM INTO THE MAT WITH A ROUGH SHOULDER BLOCK! Xander crashes into the mat, quickly holding at the back of his head as Ronan has that cocky smirk on his face, and he shoots off the ropes to continue momentum forward on a former World Heavyweight Champion…
Stew-O: …ONLY FOR XANDER TO GET BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AS HE CATCHES RONAN AND SENDS HIM FLYING OVER AND INTO THE MAT WITH A HEADLOCK TAKEDOWN! Ronan goes hard into the mat, as Xander floats over and he seizes the headlock in even tighter! Ronan is trapped on the mat, but it looks like he is going to find his way out of it, pulling Xander back up to his feet as well, and he goes for a quick uppercut, but Xander ducks it, AND A SLAP TO THE FACE BY XANDER PAYNE!
Flanner McCoy: AND RONAN MALOSI RESPONDS WITH ONE OF HIS OWN, BUT I DON’T THINK THAT MADE XANDER HAPPY, AS HE QUICKLY GRABS RONAN, AND HE NAILS AN UPPERCUT OF HIS OWN! That one unlike Ronan’s did not miss, as Ronan is now stunned, and Xander quickly is going to follow up with a knee to the gut, and then another one, and a third, and a fourth! XANDER IS STARTING TO LOSE HIS MIND RIGHT NOW INSIDE OF THAT RING AND AT RONAN’S EXPENSE!
Jake Mercer: This is terrorism! LEAVE RONAN ALONE! Xander isn’t letting off his opponent tonight as he manages to overwhelm him over and into the ropes before clutching onto his wrist, and he irish whips him off of the ropes, AND AS RONAN MALOSI BOUNCES OFF, XANDER PAYNE IS GOING TO LOOK TO TURN HIM INSIDE OUT WITH A HUGE LARIAT FOR HIS TROUBLES OFF OF THAT SLAP HE DELIVERED–
Stew-O: –ONLY FOR RONAN TO DUCK UNDER IT, AS HE TURNS, BUT XANDER CATCHES HIM WITH A BACK ELBOW! Ronan bounces off the ropes… AND REBOUNDS INTO A SUPERMAN PUNCH!!! RONAN TAKES XANDER DOWN TO THE MAT AND DROPS INTO A COVER, AND HE HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE WIN!
Flannery McCoy: NO! Xander Payne just barely manages to survive within this match, and it is going to have no other choice but to continue forward! Ronan thought that he might have had it won right then and there, but it just wasn’t enough to put away a Hall Of Famer just yet within this match. I don’t think Ronan is done just there, he wants to make sure that he picks up a huge win of his career tonight.
Jake Mercer: And that might be exactly what Ronan is set on doing, as he grabbed Xander by the wrist, clutching onto it and slowly beginning to pull him back up and onto his feet… AND HE LOOKS TO PULL XANDER FORWARD INTO THE ‘DEATH-RO!’ THE ‘DEATH-RO’ LOOKS TO CONNECT ONTO XANDER, BUT XANDER MANAGES TO STAY OUT OF HARM’S WAY, INSTEAD THROWING AN ELBOW RIGHT INTO THE SIDE OF RONAN’S SKULL! Xander manages to just narrowly avoid disaster there!
Stew-O: And Xander is going to stumble away into the ropes, while Ronan Malosi was gaining his composure… and Ronan goes to shoot forward at him, but Xander manages to move out of the way, and Ronan gets sent flying through the middle rope, but he hangs onto the apron! Ronan quickly gets back to his feet, AND HE NAILS A NASTY LOOKING FOREARM RIGHT ONTO XANDER’S JAW, AND HE CATCHES HIM COMPLETELY OFF GUARD WITH THAT FOREARM RIGHT THERE!
Flannery McCoy: And it looks like Ronan is going to attempt something big here, as he is going to grab Xander by the head, and he drags him through the middle rope and onto the apron as well… AND HE GOES TO LIFT XANDER UP INTO THE AIR, BUT XANDER FIGHTS OUT OF IT! Ronan tries once more, but Xander Payne again fights out of it! And he begins nailing nasty shots to the gut, and stops Ronan from connecting!
Jake Mercer: AND XANDER PAYNE INSTEAD IS GOING TO LIFT RONAN MALOSI HIGH UP AND INTO THE AIR ON THE APRON… AND HE DROPS HIM ONTO HIS HEAD WITH A HUGE APRON BRAINBUSTER!!! Xander just delivered a nasty looking brainbuster, and Ronan looks to be completely out of it, as he quickly pushes him back into the ring, taking advantage!
Stew-O: And Xander rolls into the ring as well, getting back up to his feet, as Ronan starts to stumble up as well, and I don’t think that he sees what is about to happen right here… AS XANDER PAYNE GRABS ONTO RONAN, AND HE TURNS HIM AROUND, AND TURNS HIM AROUND RIGHT INTO ‘OVERDOSE!!!!!’
Flannery McCoy: AND IT CONNECTS!!!! THE PALM STRIKE TO THE NOSE CONNECTS AND THAT DROPS RONAN, AS XANDER QUICKLY DROPS DOWN AS WELL, AND HE FLOATS OVER INTO THE COVER, HOOKING THE LEG IN DEEP! Xander for the win here!
Jake Mercer: YES! YES! BUT RONAN MALOSI JUST BARELY MANAGES TO KICK OUT AT THE COUNT OF TWO! RONAN STAYS ALIVE IN THIS MATCH! Xander Payne does not like that whatsoever, but he can’t do anything about it besides to attempt to deal even more punishment and just have hope that it is going to be enough to keep someone as talented and powerful as Ronan Malosi down, but I have my doubts for that to become a reality hehe.
Stew-O: :francis: Xander Payne is a world class athlete, Jake. A former world champion, and of course a Hall Of Famer. I’m sure that he can take Ronan out once and for all in this match, as he grabs him by his head and he begins to pull him back up to his feet, AND IT LOOKS LIKE XANDER PAYNE IS GOING TO ATTEMPT TO DO EXACTLY THAT, AS HE PULLS RONAN RIGHT IN, AND HE LOOKS TO SLAM HIM DOWN WITH THE ORIGINAL URANAGE!!! ‘PEACEKEEPER’ TO CONNECT AND PUT AN END TO THIS MATCH ONCE AND FOR ALL TONIGHT!
Flannery McCoy: RONAN IS FIGHTING OUT OF IT! Ronan catches Xander with back elbows after back elbows,BUT XANDER STILL MANAGES TO LIFT RONAN INTO THE AIR, BUT IT’S ANOTHER BACK ELBOW THAT FORCES HIM BACK DOWN! And Ronan with a knee to the gut! Xander had no way of preventing that from happening, as he pushes him away, and Xander bounces off the ropes, AND RONAN GOES FOR ANOTHER SUPERMAN PUNCH, BUT XANDER CATCHES HIM INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION, GOING FOR THE ‘LAST SEDATION!!’
Jake Mercer: RONAN MALOSI ONCE AGAIN FIGHTS OUT OF IT! He manages to get back down to his feet on the mat… AND HE KICKS XANDER IN THE GUT, BEFORE DROPPING HIM TO THE MAT WITH A MASSIVE DDT, AND JUST LIKE THAT, BOTH MEN ARE DOWN AND OUT ON THE MAT! These two have been brutalising each other throughout this match, and it looks like there is going to be no signs of stopping until there is a winner!
Stew-O: Neither men are moving, and it looks like we might be at some sort of stalemate right now, the referee having no idea on what to do… but before he could start a count, movement is starting to be made… and it is from Ronan Malosi himself; the man who dropped Xander with the DDT in the first place!
Flannery McCoy: Ronan is starting to get back up to his feet slowly but surely, and Xander still isn’t moving! If Ronan could take advantage of this, he is most definitely going to find himself in a huge predicament to pull off an absolute upset here tonight against Xander Payne!
Jake Mercer: THAT’S RIGHT! RONAN MALSOI OF COURSE HAS THIS MATCH WON, BECAUSE HE IS A MOTHERFACKING GOAT, AND LOOK AT HIM! RONAN IS SIZING XANDER UP, HE WAS READY TO PUT AN END TO THIS MATCH, AS XANDER STARTED TO MAKE HIS WAY UP TO HIS FEET… WHO’S THAT–
Stew-O: THAT’S THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION UP ON THE APRON, AND HE JUST SPRAYED RED MIST INTO RONAN MALOSI’S EYES!!!! RONAN DROPS AND HOLDS HIS EYES, AS THERON ENTERS THE RING AND BEGINS TO BEAT DOWN ON HIM, AND THE REFEREE HAS NO CHOICE BUT CALLING IT! RONAN WINS BY DQ!
(DING! DING! DING! DING! DING!)
Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY DISQUALIFICATION… RONANNN MALOSIII!!!!!!!!!!!
Flannery McCoy: BUT THERON IS SHOWING NO REMORSE! THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION IS BATTERING RONAN’S SKULL IN WITH THOSE FOREARMS, BEFORE GETTING BACK TO HIS FEET… AND HE STARTS KICKING HIS HEAD IN!!! RONAN IS DEFENSELESS!
Jake Mercer: THIS IS NOT FAIR! THIS IS NOT FAIR WHATSOEVER, AS THERON PULLS RONAN BACKUP TO HIS FEET WHILE HE WAS COMPLETELY DEFENSELESS AND…
Stew-O: ‘GHOST’S REQUIEM!!!!’ THE SWINGING REVERSE STO CONNECTS, AND HE DROPS RONAN MALOSI!!! THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION HAS JUST MADE A STATEMENT A STATEMENT HERE TONIGHT!
(Theron Nikolas would stand tall over Ronan Malosi with a cold look on his face, cracking his neck as the camera would then begin to fade right out from there.)
[SCREENBAR: EARLIER THIS WEEK]
(The camera opens up to the Sinatra Italian restaurant located on Las Vegas Blvd in Las Vegas, Nevada. The sun is just beginning to set, the last sliver of light showing before it turns to night, as the attention is focused on the scenery as it is bustling in the place of establishment. Fancy food is seen being delivered left and right, people all around as there doesn’t seem to be a single table that’s open. The line is out the door, but right now the attention is completely shifted toward a table that stands out amongst the rest. In actuality, it’s three tables put together, but those three tables seat six of the most important Elitists on the Friday Night Dynasty brand at the moment. At the helm of it all, is Dynasty commentator Stew-O, who has a smile on his face as he adjusts his suit tie.)
Stew-O: Are we all settled?
(Stew looks around as the food is being seen handed out, and there are a various number of responses being given by the people at the table. Hans Grayson and Jay Jerry Johnson, seated across from one another, are both relatively calm and collected in a setting like this. They seem to have no complaints despite being seated with Elitists that they’re going to be facing sooner rather than later, but the same can’t be said for the other guests that are accompanying them. SOSA Henderson, Myles, Jake Smith, and lastly Bronson Daniels are not exactly at ease being in the company of one another. They’re all notably irritated at each other after everything that had happened last week. Stew notices this and quickly speaks up.)
Stew-O: I see that we’re not in the most… uplifting… mood right now, so I’d like to start asking questions if all of you don’t mind. We’ll start with the Champion, Bronson.
Myles: (Mumbling) Of course he’d go first…
(Bronson unfortunately hears what Myles said, not directly responding to him but instead giving him a side eye, he adjusts the title over his shoulder and instead of getting himself into unneeded conflicts, he pays attention to Stew and allows him to ask his first question.)
Stew-O: Heading into the Extreme Elimination Chamber it’s clear that tension between you and a number of the other Elitists in this match has reached an all time high. How are you feeling about everything?
(Bronson looks down at his plate, shaking his head slowly.)
Bronson Daniels: I will admit that I never imagined things getting this far…
(Before Bronson can continue, SOSA is heard chuckling to himself. Bronson looks across to him as he can be heard mumbling words that aren’t caught by the camera, but it seems that the Champion can hear him loud and clear as he speaks up.)
Bronson Daniels: But when you have certain people like SOSA Henderson in the match, you shouldn’t be all that surprised. I mean, he was the main orchestrator behind all of this, and is one of the primary reasons why everything started to devolve as fast as it did. It’s funny, I thought that out of everyone, he would be the most eager to prove himself as the best, but his actions are a far cry from the respectable, ready to fight Elitists whom he wants to be seen as.
(Bronson takes a sip of water and sarcastically shrugs his shoulders.)
SOSA Henderson: Hop off it hoe, I said I was willing to do whatever it took this time around to win the World Heavyweight Championship and I’m still adamant on that. It doesn’t matter if my actions are looked at as respectable or not.
Jake Smith: Well, I get the argument that we’re having right now, but I don’t think Bronson has the right to say what is respectable or not after he hit me.
Bronson Daniels: You know I didn’t mean to man, it was an accident. I meant to hit someone else, you know the respect that I have for you, I would never intentionally do it out of any form of malice. But even then, both of us understand what we’re going to have to do if we want to have this title around our waist.
(Jake is seemingly listening while he sips his glass of Teremana tequila. He nods his head slowly.)
Jake Smith: I understand, but that doesn’t mean I’m exactly forgiving you either.
(Bronson nods his head, understanding what Jake is saying, meanwhile Stew sees the tension between the four, instead looking to move on.)
Stew-O: Let’s move onto Hans, with Road To Redemption possibly being the biggest match of his career. How do you feel being in a match of this caliber for a title like the World Heavyweight Championship?
Hans Grayson: I’d be silly if I said I didn’t have nerves, because I do. It was a huge leap from my reign as New Breed Championship to this point, and even though I know that I’m ready for whatever this match has to offer, there’s a lot of mental preparation that goes into this. But I know that I’m ready to step up to the plate, and when the time comes for me to step into the ring with the rest of these gentlemen I’ll give it my all in hopes of being called a World Champion once the year is over.
Stew-O: I could ask the same question for Jay, this isn’t your first time in a Chamber and with your return to this environment, do you feel like you’re prepared better than you were the last time around?
Jay Jerry Johnson: Absolutely, especially after my Interwire Championship reign, I feel like I could not be more prepared for an environment like the Extreme Elimination Chamber. My last time in the match was a valiant effort on my behalf, but now I’m willing to kick it up to the next level and hopefully come out the winner this time around. What I especially feel good about is being able to help my team pin the World Heavyweight Champion last week. Now that is a good start.
(The entire time that Jay is speaking, he can’t help but notice Myles as he glares at him in a shady manner. He bows his head down, trying not to be noticable with his mannerisms, but Jay does not waste time calling him out.)
Jay Jerry Johnson: Do we have a problem?
(Myles raises his eyebrow as he lifts his head up, shaking his head as he takes a sip of his water and starts to speak.)
Myles: Nothing, I was just thinking about how you two did that last week, surely we’re not going to leave that part out, right? That the only reason you beat me and Bronson was because of him.
(Myles points his finger at SOSA, who can’t help but give a sly grin as he’s reminded of what happened.)
Myles: It’s easy to see that you two were not the better team on paper.
Jay Jerry Johnson: Well on paper, we still beat you and Bronson. At least I did anyway. :troll:
(Hans now glares at Jay after that comment, as he can’t help but take offense to it as he thinks it’s a matter of Jay taking all the credit for the victory. But unlike the rest of his opponents, he puts himself on a leash, seemingly chalking it down to him reading too deeply into it.)
Stew-O: Well now that we got that out of the way, I’d like to ask the other three some questions if you don’t mind. Starting with SOSA, as it seems that you’ve been the focal point of the conversation at this table tonight. This will be your second World Heavyweight Championship opportunity this Season, what are you looking to do differently?
SOSA Henderson: I know what most people are thinking, that SOSA Henderson can’t do it, that SOSA Henderson doesn’t have what it takes to win the World Heavyweight Championship. But if I listened to them and just gave up, what good would that do for me? So I looked toward the World Heavyweight Championship opportunity that is in front of me right now instead of having my mind wrapped up on the past. I’m in a position where I have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain out of this match, so my first train of thought… fuck it… I’m going to do whatever the fuck I need to if it means coming out as a two-time World Champion. If that means stepping on a few toes in the process, then that’s something I’m willing to do.
Stew-O: The same can be said for Myles, this isn’t your first time around facing Bronson for the title, as you had an opportunity on Dynasty a little more than a month ago. What is your thought process in a match like this?
Myles: Isn’t it obvious? Redemption. I’ve had many opportunities at the World Heavyweight Championship in the past, and each and every time I find it slipping right through my fingertips. I get so close, and end up so far, and I’d be lying if I said I was content with that. I don’t care what happens leading into this, my eye is exactly where it needs to be and it’s capturing the title. Two years ago I won the EAW World Championship off of Drake King by cashing in my CITV briefcase under the Extreme Elimination Chamber structure. Now, I repeat history and do so by my own merit.
Stew-O: Lastly, Jake. It hasn’t been long since your last World Championship reign, and while injury has stopped you from pursuing a second one, you find yourself in the position to do just that at Road To Redemption. Are there any jitters on your end?
Jake Smith: There is pressure, but honestly, what’s new? I’ve always had the weight of the world on my shoulder, and my multiple failures in the past have been documented countlessly. Now that I’ve had a taste of glory, I don’t want to be put in a position of sorrow and regret again. I’m going to make sure that if there’s any time to become a two-time World Champion, it’s at Road To Redemption. While everyone here is an excellent Elitist in their own right, nobody is taking that away from me.
Stew-O: Well ultimately, and this can be a question for everyone, what makes you think that you can win the Extreme Elimination Chamber?
Jake Smith: I’ve been there before and I’ll do it again. I know what it takes to be a Champion and the lengths that I’m going to have to go in order to get there, and I feel like I haven’t lost my stride at all.
SOSA Henderson: That’s hard to say when your reign as Answers World Champion was pretty mediocre in itself. It’s easy to say that it’s good when nobody remembers what happened during it.
Jake Smith: I don’t know why we have to continue having this conversation, SOSA, because you’re the last person that should be talking about mediocre World Championship reigns when yours happened.
Bronson Daniels: I’m sorry, Jake, but I don’t think you should be getting yourself involved in this conversation. This is petty and beneath you, you know that.
Jake Smith: Are you sure about that, Bronson? Maybe you haven’t known the real me after all this time.
(Bronson takes offense to this as he definitely did not expect that to be the response that came out of his former tag partner’s mouth. Myles on the other hand gives a loud sigh.)
Myles: All of you are children, don’t you get tired pointing fingers at one another? Comparing mediocrity is beneath EVERYONE in this match but I guess they’re just letting anyone into the Chamber nowadays.
Hans Grayson: Bold talk for someone who already lost out on two opportunities to win the World Heavyweight Championship. I’m sorry, Myles, but I’m just finding it really hard to believe that out of everyone it’s you that’s going to win.
Myles: I find it hard to believe coming out of your mouth as well. You win one New Breed Championship and it gets to your head.
Jay Jerry Johnson: I definitely know someone who’s had this all go to his head, it’s you, Myles. Your luck has run dry this Season and it shows.
Jake Smith: :francis: This is all getting real pointless real fast.
(Before long, the chatter between all six Elitists dissolves into a full scale screaming match, where everything is hard to distinguish from one another. Myles gets up from his chair in anger and shouts across from him, while Jake and SOSA get up as well and start throwing verbal jabs at one another. Bronson seems to get caught in the crossfire as he yells back at them, meanwhile Hans and Jay both seem adamant on getting their point across now.)
Stew-O: Uhhhh guys, can we-
(It isn’t long before Myles LUNGES across the table and takes down SOSA, as the two of them engage in a fist fight! Meanwhile, the rest of the Elitists in the Chamber match are brawling with one another as well, but before long it’s security and a number of waiters that come in and are forced to break this up. In the chaos of it all, an embarrassed Stew-O rubs the back of his neck, pretty let down that this had to happen in a place like this.)
Stew-O: Uh… back to you guys!
(Friday Night Dynasty then fades to elsewhere from there.)
(The camera returns to the ring as Stephie is standing in the ring with a microphone as she is ready to begin the introductions for tonight’s main event match.)
Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, this next contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Partition (Smearcase Trap Remix)’ by Beyoncé starts to play as a spotlight shines at the top of the entrance ramp to which a beautiful silhouette appears. The camera starts at her feet and works its way up her beautiful body stopping in all the right places before focusing on the beautiful face of Kassidy Heart. She has her Universal Women’s Title around her waist and her Tag Team Title on her shoulder. Closely behind is her tag partner, Sienna Jade, as they head to the ring. )
Stephie Love: Introducing first and making her way to the ring! Being accompanied by Sienna Jade and representing the Jaded Hearts. From Sydney, Australia. Weighing 141 pounds. Here is ONE HALF OF THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS AND THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, “THE MAULER” KASSIDY HEART!
Jake Mercer: KING KASS IS HERE!! KASS2BELTS IS READY FOR ACTION AND SHE IS READY TO DOMINATE LIKE SHE ALWAYS DOES!! WOOO!
Stew-O: Kassidy Heart has been a very busy lady now that she is a double champion. She and Sienna have been at odds with La Familia on Voltage for the Unified Tag Team Titles.
Flannery McCoy: Now she has Minerva gunning after her Universal Women’s Title. If any Elitist in EAW can defend two different Championships, it’s Kassidy Heart. Tonight’s action is with a competitor who will make sure that tonight will be a long night.
(Kass enters the ring and takes off her metal mask. She glares at the referee as she hands her mask and her championship belts to Sienna. Her music is quickly replaced by “Tupac Back” by Meek Mill feat. Rick Ross as Cy Henderson enters the arena to cheers from the crowd as he immediately heads to the ring.)
Stephie Love: Introducing her opponent! From New York City! Weighing in at 240 pounds! Here is “JUSTICE SEEKER” CY HENDERSON!
Flannery McCoy: Here comes Cy Henderson and he is ready for action and you have to believe that Cy is not in the best of moods. Especially after that assault two weeks ago.
Jake Mercer: The rich future of the business got the one up on this old fart who needs to be put out to pasture. It’s gonna happen again, so he should just get over it.
Stew-O: After Cy defeated Michael Machina, Drake Armstrong attacked and took him out. Cy wants to make Drake pay for that stunt. But tonight, Cy needs to keep his focus on Kassidy Heart. Two Hall of Famers going to battle. Who will leave victorious? We’ll find out.
(Cy enters the ring and takes his corner as his entrance music fades off. The referee checks Cy and keeps their distance from Kass as they call for the bell. )
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: The bell has sounded and our main event is underway! This is going to be an amazing match between two EAW Hall of Famers and former World Champions. I wonder how this battle is going to go.
Jake Mercer: Kassidy Heart is going to win this match and there is no doubt about it in my mind because she is much better than Cy Henderson wishes he ever could be.
Flannery McCoy: Expert and unbiased commentary once again from Jake Mercer as Cy and Kass meet up in the center of the ring and immediately lock up. I would say that Cy has an easy advantage, but Kass can surprise us.
Stew-O: She can give any powerhouse a run for their money AND CY JUST SHOVES KASS AWAY AND KASS LANDS ON HER KEISTER! OHHHH! THAT IS NOT GOING TO SIT WELL WITH KASSIDY HEART!
Flannery McCoy: You have that right. The match has just started and Kassidy already looks pissed. You can’t expect anybody to treat Kass like that and get away with it! Kass is back to her feet AND SHE IS NOT HAPPY!
Jake Mercer: Cy is not only old, he’s freaking stupid, too. Kass is right back in Cy’s face and they jawjack for a moment AND KASSIDY JUST SLAPPED CY ACROSS THE FACE! That was great! Do you see the handprint on Cy’s face?
Flannery McCoy: Kass slapped him hard AND KASS IS THROWING FOREARMS INTO CY’S FACE! She is managing to stagger Cy back until he reaches the ropes. Kass tries to whip Cy off the ropes–
Stew-O: CY REVERSES AND KASSIDY GOES FOR THE RIDE! Kassidy rebounds off the ropes as she ducks the clothesline attempt from Cy and hooks her arms around the top rope. Cy comes running in–
Jake Mercer: AND KASSIDY PULLS DOWN THE TOP ROPE AND CY GOES TUMBLING OVER THE TOP ROPE AND HE HITS THE APRON AND FALLS TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! If he is making mistakes like that, he is going to have no shot against Kassidy.
Stew-O: Kassidy is now on the apron as she waits for Cy to get back to his feet. She is keeping a close eye on her opposition as Cy makes it back to his feet AND KASSIDY JUMPS ONTO THE SECOND ROPE!
Jake Mercer: SHE FLIPS BACK AND TAKES CY BACK DOWN TO THE FLOOR WITH A BEAUTIFUL ASAI MOONSAULT! This is where Kassidy makes up the difference of the power disadvantage against Cy.
Flannery McCoy: She does have an all around arsenal when it comes to her wrestling and she is showing it right now with that Asai Moonsault as we hear Sienna Jade cheering her on from ringside.
Stew-O: Kass now drags Cy back to his feet and applies a sort of waistlock AND BACKS HIM UP AND RIGHT INTO THE EDGE OF THE RING! CY’S BACK IS TAKING A POUNDING RIGHT NOW!
Flannery McCoy: Now Kass is just pounding her fists into Cy’s face while he’s still leaning against the edge of the apron as the referee is still counting both competitors out of the ring.
Jake Mercer: Nothing to worry about. Kassidy is keeping close watch of the count. Like right now as she is rolling Cy back into the ring before following suit as the referee’s count reaches seven.
Flannery McCoy: Kass isn’t a double champion for not being well in tune with her surroundings. Kassidy is back to her feet as she hits the ropes. Cy is trying to get back to his feet, but KASS COMES BACK WITH A LOW DROPKICK SENDING CY BACK DOWN!
Stew-O: Cy is on the ropes early on in this match, but it’s just the opening minutes. There is plenty of match time left, so there’s plenty of time for Cy to get back into this match.
Jake Mercer: The opening minutes will be the same as the ending minutes. Cy is still going to be dominated by Kass and will eventually lose this match. Like right now as Kassidy stands back up–
Stew-O: AND KASS DROPS THE ELBOW ACROSS THE BACK OF CY’S NECK! Cy is holding the back of his neck in pain. Kass drags Cy as much as she can towards the middle of the ring BEFORE HITTING A STANDING MOONSAULT!
Jake Mercer: STANDING MOONSAULT RIGHT ON THE MONEY AS KASS SCRAMBLES BACK ONTO CY AS SHE HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Flannery McCoy: CY POWERS OUT AT TWO! As Stew-O mentioned earlier, there is still plenty of time left for Cy to make a comeback in this match. I know that he will. Right now Kass is back on her feet and she is bringing Cy back up as well.
Stew-O: I am not sure if the camera caught it, but Sienna Jade was glaring at the referee like it was their fault that Cy kicked out. Anyways, Cy is back up and Kass once again tries to whip Cy to the ropes–
Flannery McCoy: But Cy is still too strong as he reverses it and Kass goes for the ride again. This time the results work in his favor as Kass comes back BEFORE CY GRABS HER AND DRIVES HER DOWN WITH A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!
Jake Mercer: Ehh. Things happen every once in a while. Remember a broken clock is right twice a day, so Cy was bound to hit a few moves in this match. I can admit that the suplex was a powerful move.
Flannery McCoy: Kass was driven hard into the mat and Cy is now starting to slowly build some momentum which would hopefully get him back into this match. Cy is putting the boots to Kassidy, but the expert ring awareness of “The Mauler” is showing itself again.
Stew-O: She rolls herself out onto the ring apron and the referee is backing Cy off and away from Kassidy as she gets back to her feet onto the apron, which Kass is hoping to get a quick breather.
Jake Mercer: WHAT IS THIS? CY BREAKS AWAY FROM THE REFEREE AND GRABS KASS FROM UNDER THE ARM BEFORE BRINGING HER IN THE HARD WAY! Disqualify this man for not listening to the referee.
Stew-O: Not a great landing for Kass after Cy just tosses her back into the ring. Damage done to her back as Kassidy gets back to her feet and Cy once again whips Kass to the ropes. Kass comes back AND CY LEAVES HIS FEET AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A SHOULDER BLOCK!
Jake Mercer: Kass is down and turned inside out after that shoulder block, but this is just a brief deviation from Kassidy’s plan. Cy might be in control now, but it won’t last.
Flannery McCoy: Kassidy is still down and Cy reaches down to grab Kass, BUT KASS GRABS HOLD OF THE ARM AND NECK OF CY! KASSIDY HAS A MODIFIED TRIANGLE CHOKE APPLIED!
Stew-O: SUBMISSION APPLIED AND KASSIDY WAS PLAYING POSSUM THERE! NOW CY MIGHT BE IN A MESS OF TROUBLE AND HE COULD BE FORCED TO SUBMIT RIGHT HERE IF HE CAN’T FIND A WAY TO GET FREE!
Flannery McCoy: Cy is trying to use his free arm to break free of the choke… LOOK AT THIS! CY HAS HOLD OF KASSIDY AND HE IS DEADLIFTING HER FROM THE MAT! LOOK AT THE POWER BEING SHOWN BY CY HENDERSON!
Jake Mercer: Is Cy a powerhouse? Yes. Does Cy have a stupid nickname as well? Also yes. I still don’t understand why in the hell he calls himself “Justice Seeker”, but I guess I’ll ask another day, BUT HE NEEDS TO PUT KASSIDY DOWN!
Flannery McCoy: CY HAS KASS ABOUT NINE OR TEN FEET IN THE AIR WITH ONE ARM AS HE WALKS KASSIDY TOWARDS THE CENTER OF THE RING BEFORE DROPPING HER WITH A SITOUT POWERBOMB!
Stew-O: WHAT A COUNTER FROM THE HALL OF FAMER HENDERSON! KASS LOOKS TO HAVE HER BELL RUNG AFTER THAT MOVE AS CY STACKS KASSIDY UP AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
Jake Mercer: KASSIDY HEART KICKS OUT AT TWO! That was honestly no surprise to anybody because Kassidy has been through much worse in matches. I will give credit to Cy. He did rock Kass up a bit with that powerbomb.
Stew-O: The back of Kass’ head and neck took some damage on impact and Cy brings Kassidy back to her feet and whips her into the corner. Cy quickly follows and HE HITS THE SHOULDER TACKLE IN THE CORNER ON KASSIDY!
Jake Mercer: He does a few more shoulder tackles in the corner as the referee is telling him to let her out. He’s not listening, so this match should be over via disqualification. But Cy does back away for a second–
Flannery McCoy: Cy goes right back to the corner and lifts Kass off of her feet and sits her on the top turnbuckle. Cy now starts the climb and he is on the second rope as he tries to hook Kass–
Stew-O: BUT KASS IS FIGHTING BACK AND THROWING THOSE RIGHT HANDS INTO THE SIDE OF CY’S HEAD! KASS IS PUNCHING AND PUNCHING BEFORE SHE FINALLY KNOCKS CY OFF THE SECOND ROPE!
Flannery McCoy: He is still on his feet as Kass finds her footing standing on the top turnbuckle BEFORE KASS JUMPS AND FLIES! KASSIDY TAKES CY DOWN WITH THE CROSSBODY FROM THE TOP ROPE–
Jake Mercer: WHAT THE? CY MANAGES TO ROLL THROUGH AND LAND ON HIS KNEES AS HE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET ALL WHILE HOLDING ONTO KASS! WHERE IN THE WORLD DID THIS COME FROM!
Flannery McCoy: Cy now puts Kass on his shoulders in the fireman’s carry position. He is walking towards the center of the ring, BUT KASSIDY STILL HAS SOME FIGHT IN HER AS SHE IS THROWING ELBOWS TO TRY AND GET FREE!
Stew-O: CY IS TRYING TO ENDURE THE SHOTS, BUT IT GETS TOO MUCH AND HE STARTS TO LOSE GRIP OF KASSIDY! Kassidy uses this opportunity to kick herself free and fling her feet off his shoulders!
Jake Mercer: Kassidy also grabs a hold around Cy’s neck SO SHE CAN TAKE HIM DOWN AND PLANTS HIM WITH THE FALLING INVERTED DDT! THAT’S WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER DOUBT KASSIDY HEART! She is always one step ahead of her opponents!
Stew-O: I don’t like giving you credit when you are being biased, but you might be right. Kass is willing to take some damage, but she is usually one step ahead.
Jake Mercer: Maybe you should listen to me more often. Look at the way that Cy’s head bounced off the canvas after that DDT. Cy had to have had his bell rung after that move.
Flannery McCoy: Cy is feeling a little dazed after that move as Kassidy leaves her ground attack and walks herself over to the corner before crouching down!
Stew-O: WE KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS! SHE IS LOOKING FOR THE INFAMOUS SPEAR MADE FAMOUS HER GAWD MR. DEDEDE! SHE IS GLARING AT CY AND WATCHING HIM GET BACK TO HIS FEET!
Flannery McCoy: Cy has no idea the trouble he is about to find himself in as he gets back to his feet. He has a very hungry and very determined Mauler ready to strike.
Jake Mercer: Sienna is cheering Kassidy from ringside as Cy makes it back to his feet. He turns around AND KASSIDY RUNS FULL SPEED LOOKING FOR THE DEDEDE SPEAR! “GO TO GAWD” IS GOING TO WIN IT FOR KASSIDY!
Flannery McCoy: WAIT A SECOND! LOOK AT THIS! CY CAUGHT HER! CY CAUGHT KASSIDY BEFORE SHE COULD EXECUTE THE SPEAR!
Stew-O: Cy has a gutwrench on Kassidy before he switches to a facelock and grabs Kassidy’s leg before lifting her up in the air.
Jake Mercer: PUT HER DOWN! YOU HAVE EAW ROYALTY UP IN THE AIR LIKE THAT, YOU BUM! SAVE THIS STUFF FOR DRAKE ARMSTRONG BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO NEED IT!
Stew-O: THE BLOOD IS RUSHING TO KASSIDY’S HEAD AS CY DROPS DOWN AND SPIKES KASSIDY ON HER HEAD WITH THE FISHERMAN BUSTER! “DOWNWARD SPIRAL” BY THE FORMER WORLD CHAMPION!
Jake Mercer: OH NO! Kassidy was dropped on her head and what a downward spiral she would experience if she loses this match as he goes for the cover!
Flannery McCoy: DID HE GET IT? I THINK HE GOT HER! THIS MATCH IS OVER!
Stew-O: LOOK! The referee has waved off the pin! I don’t think this match is over yet!
Flannery McCoy: I think you are right, Stew-O! Look at the replay! The referee was coming down and looked to have made the three count, but we can see that Kassidy barely got her shoulder up.
Jake Mercer: It wasn’t as dangerously close as you all are making it out to be. Kassidy knows how to make a match look good for the fans and how to lull her opponents into a false sense of security.
Flannery McCoy: Call it whatever you want, but Kass was dangerously close to losing this match to Cy and even Sienna let out a breath of relief after the ref called it a two count.
Stew-O: Cy brings Kassidy back to her feet and whips her to the ropes. Kassidy rebounds AND CY WITH A BIG BOOT AND IT CATCHES KASSIDY RIGHT IN THE FACE!
Jake Mercer: Must other competitors would be knocked out by that kick, but not Kassidy. She is still on her feet as she falls back to the ropes.
Stew-O: She rebounds and Cy picks her up AND HOISTS HER INTO THE AIR WITH THE MILITARY PRESS! KASS IS TEN FEET OR MORE IN THE AIR AND THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO GO–
Flannery McCoy: WHAT THE HELL? KASS MANAGES TO CLIP CY IN THE ELBOW AND THAT CAUSES CY TO LET HER DOWN! KASS SLIDES OFF CY’S BACK AND DROPKICKS CY INTO THE CORNER!
Stew-O: Cy hits the corner hard and Kass gets herself into the opposite corner to get a head of steam BEFORE RUNNING FULL SPEED TOWARDS CY IN THE OTHER CORNER–
Flannery McCoy: SHE GOT IT! SHE GOT THE “RAPTURE” KICK! HELLUVA KICK CAUGHT CY RIGHT IN THE JAW AND HE GOES DOWN! KASS PULLS CY AWAY FROM THE CORNER AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
Jake Mercer: AND CY KICKS OUT AT TWO! HOW IN THE WORLD DO WE KEEP GETTING REFEREES ASSIGNED TO THESE MATCHES WHO COUNT SLOWER THAN A PARADE IN A BLIZZARD! I DON’T GET IT!
Flannery McCoy: Regardless of what your opinion is about the officiating, this has been a great match. Now he is back to her feet and drags Cy to his knees AND SHE HAS A GUTWRENCH! IS SHE REALLY GONNA TRY AND POWERBOMB CY HENDERSON? COME ON, KASS!
Stew-O: Kass is a powerhouse so she could actually pull this off, but the odds are not in her favor AS SHE TRIES TO MUSCLE CY UP FOR A POWERBOMB! IS SHE GONNA ACTUALLY DO IT?
Jake Mercer: I’m rooting for Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade is cheering from ringside, but even I don’t think that she is that strong to get Cy up for a powerbomb. No matter how strong she is.
Stew-O: Don’t let Kass hear you doubt her, BUT HE’S ALMOST UP! CY IS ALMOST SET UP FOR A POWERBOMB, BUT HE BLOCKS IT ENOUGH TO PREVENT HER FROM PICKING HIM UP ALL THE WAY! Cy is back down on the mat AND KASSIDY IS JUST BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF CY! CLOBBERING HIS BACK!
Jake Mercer: Look at Kassidy just beat the holy tar out of this old man. Show him that he made a big mistake going against the greatness of Kassidy Heart. Drake Armstrong is going to have no trouble beating this old man.
Flannery McCoy: Kass tries to grab Cy, but Cy drops down and counters into a jawbreaker to get free. Kass was staggered back towards the ropes, but she comes back with the rebound AND CY GOES FOR THE CYCLONE LARIAT!
Stew-O: DISCUS LARIAT ON TAP, BUT KASS DUCKS IT AT THE LAST SECOND! Kass gets behind Cy, who turns around into a kick that he caught BEFORE KASS COUNTERS WITH THE “HEART STOPPER”! HEART PUNCH BY KASSIDY HEART!
Flannery McCoy: CY CLUTCHES HIS CHEST AS HE FALLS DOWN TO THE MAT IN A HEAP! That’s exactly what Kass wanted as she brings Cy to his knees and has him in the gutwrench position again… OH SHE IS NOT GONNA TRY A POWERBOMB AGAIN IS SHE?
Jake Mercer: I think that Kassidy is one of the greatest competitors and she is one of the strongest competitors, but I am worried that she might have a screw loose right now. There is about one hundred pounds in weight difference since Cy is 240 pounds of blubber and jello.
Flannery McCoy: Will you shut the hell up? Kass is not a quitter and Kassidy actually is going to give it another try. Kass has the gutwrench applied once more… AND… AND SHE GOT CY UP IN THE POWERBOMB POSITION!
Stew-O: OH MY GAWD! WE KNEW THAT KASS WAS POWERFUL, BUT THIS HAS TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED! JUST AS QUICKLY AS KASSIDY BROUGHT HIM UP, SHE BRINGS HIM BACK DOWN AND RIGHT INTO THE CORNER WITH THAT DANGEROUS SNAP BUCKLE BOMB!
Jake Mercer: DID YOU SEE THE WAY THAT CY’S HEAD AND NECK SNAP BACK AFTER SHE HIT THE BUCKLE BOMB? IT WAS MAGNIFICENT! HIS EYES LOOKED LIKE THEY ROLLED UP IN HIS HEAD! HE COULD HAVE BEEN KNOCKED OUT WITH THAT ONE!
Stew-O: CY IS DOWN AS SHE QUICKLY GETS UP TO THE TOP ROPE AND FOLLOWS UP THE BUCKLE BOMB WITH A SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM THE TOP! “MAXX SOLARIS II” BY THE MAULER AND SHE HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Flannery McCoy: CY TRIED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP TO KICK OUT, BUT IT WAS JUST A MICROSECOND TOO LATE! THIS MATCH IS OVER!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Partition (Smearcase Trap Remix)’ starts playing again as Kassidy rolls off of Cy and get to her feet as Stephie Love begins to announce the official decision of the match. )
Stephie Love: Here is your winner… THE UNIFIED TAG AND UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION… KASSIDY HEART!
Stew-O: What an amazing match between two of EAW’s Hall of Famers. Cy certainly brought the fight, but it was the second nature intuition of “The Mauler” that led her to victory tonight.
(The referee goes to raise Kassidy’s arm in victory, but Sienna enters the ring and pushes the referee out of the way and raises Kass’ arm in victory as the referee goes back to check on Cy.)
Jake Mercer: Like there was any doubt that this would be the end result. Kassidy is one of the most dominant people in EAW. No doubt about that either.
Flannery McCoy: You have got to give credit to Cy for the effort he brought to this match. He had the match won on a few occasions, but it unfortunately wasn’t meant to be this time around.
Stew-O: Cy brought the fight, but tonight belongs to Kass2Belts herself. Kassidy with a big win here tonight and we give her our congrat–
(Stew-O was not able to finish his sentence when Sienna was handing Kassidy her Championship belts as Minerva comes from out of nowhere and clobbers both Kassidy and Sienna, taking them down.)
Flannery McCoy: LOOK AT THIS! IT’S MINERVA! THE CHALLENGER FOR THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION AND SHE IS DOING A NUMBER ON KASSIDY HEART!
Jake Mercer: How dare this Voltage Trash attack our beautiful King Kass. She is putting the boots to her before grabbing Sienna Jade AND PLANTING HER WITH PARADISE LOST! Inverted DDT puts Sienna down and Minerva just kicks her out of the ring to the floor.
Stew-O: Now she focuses her attention back on Kassidy Heart AND SHE IS POUNDING THOSE FISTS INTO THE FACE OF THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!
Flannery McCoy: Now she grabs Kassidy back to her feet and grabs her head before lifting her in the air and twisting back down–
Jake Mercer: ATLAS FALLS BY MINERVA!! KASSIDY’S HEAD CRACKS THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM TITLE BELT AND KASSIDY IS OUT COLD! WHAT DISRESPECT SHOWN TO ONE OF DYNASTY’S BEST!
Stew-O: Kassidy isn’t completely blameless, but holy crap! Minerva has taken out the Universal Women’s Champion with that Atlas Falls Brainbuster! Minerva was not playing around.
(Minvera gets back to her feet and grabs the Universal Women’s Championship off the mat before walking back and standing over Kassidy Heart while holding the title high in the air.)
Jake Mercer: Minerva better enjoy this moment because as soon as Kassidy Heart gets back to her senses, the funeral planning will begin and that will be the last time that Minerva will hold the Universal Women’s Championship
Flannery McCoy: Minerva certainly made another statement here tonight. She laid out the Universal Women’s Champion. I can’t wait to see these two beat the hell out of each other at Road to Redemption. It could most definitely be a
Stew-O: Things are starting to reach a fever pitch, but we are almost out of time. Thank you once again for watching another great edition of Friday Night Dynasty. For Flannery McCoy and Jake Mercer, I am Stew-O. Good night everybody!
(The final shot has Minerva still standing tall over Kassidy while holding the Universal Women’s Championship belt high in the air as Sienna Jade is still down on the outside as the camera fades to black.)
