(EAW Logo Flashes…)
(A video highlighting last weeks show begins to play; Theron Nikolas and Starr Stan’s showdown last week, Kevin Hunter’s surprise upset over Andrei Sokolova and the announcement of what the fatal four way participants will be competing for at Revolution, Starr telling Cameron that she will be facing Impact at Revolution, and Darkane and Jack Ripley’s showdown to end the show.)
(Dynasty Intro Plays; featuring “Revolution” by The Score.)
(The camera to the arena as red pyro blasts from the stage and titantron finishing with one last blast before the camera pans over the thousands packed into the Barclays Center before stopping at the ring where Cameron Ella Ava already sits on a steel chair facing the ramp holding a microphone in hand.)
Cameron: I’ve been trying my hardest to forget about what Impact did a few weeks ago and focus on the opportunity I have sitting in the palm of my hand at a Manifest Destiny. I’ve been trying my hardest to heed the words of the Dynasty General Manager and look forward to the opportunity I have next week and wait to take out my frustrations at Revolution – but, I just can’t find the willpower to do so. I’ve been working so hard to finally reach the pinnacle of this business; to do the thing that I should have been the first female elitist to achieve. I’ve had failed opportunities, but I’ve always come out of each war better than I walked in. I’ve gone back and corrected the mistakes that I’ve made, making sure I didn’t make those same mistakes again. Impact took the one thing that I wanted more than anything in the world away and I’m going to make sure the man understands the mistake is made. I’m going to make sure he rues the day that he got involved in business it never concerned him. Everything that I’m going to do to him will not compare to what he did to me. Impact threw away everything to made him quintessential – becoming nothing more than a man that allowed his own selfishness and jealousy forced him to make a mistake more severe than he understands.
(Cameron grits her teeth as she slightly dropped her head.)
Cameron: I’m not waiting for revolution I will end this now. Starr can say and do whatever you wants, but I’m not leaving this ring until this is finished.
(Cameron drops the microphone as she leans back into the chair as the thousands in attendance chant her. “2nd Sucks” hits has Starr Stan quickly makes her way through the curtain and down to the ring. Cameron pays no attention to him, instead keeping her attention directly at the top of the ramp.)
Starr: Cameron, I told you last week that I’m not going to allow things to get out of hand. I understand what Impact did to you but you will have the opportunity to get retribution next week; it’s not worth forcing my hand to do something I don’t want to do just because you can’t wait.
Cameron: i’m tired of waiting; I’m tired of allowing people push me around. People make promises of the things they’re going to do before winning the Answers World Championship – rather than saying what I’m going to do… i’m going to prove it through my actions. I’m not leaving this ring until Impact has made his way How to face everything that he has coming to him. I know that he’s here tonight, there’s nothing that you can do to make me leave.
(Starr drops and shakes his head as “Can I Live” by Jay-Z hits and Impact arrogantly makes his way out onto the stage.)
Impact: I can understand why you and Jamie get along so well – both of you fail to see what standing in front of you. You’ll learn like Jamie did that all you’re doing is cutting of her and legs; that all you should’ve done is stand down and let me walk straight through. You took away my opportunity to complete for the Answers World Championship. It wasn’t because of your own merit. It wasn’t because you were the person that deserved to move on. Because you took full advantage of someone else doing all the dirty work. If a wasn’t for that you’d be everything that you’ve always been; a worthless whore that’s been trying to take bigger steps and she really can. You took away everything that I wanted -but what I did during your match Jack Ripley it’s only a small piece of what I’m going to do to you when I’m finished. I’m going to make sure that you’re back with Jamie watching as I take claim to what should’ve always been mine. You can watch as I take back the championship that I made famous. Starr is right – You should wait another week before you throw your career away. You should give yourself the opportunity to experience the finer things before I take away the one thing you cherish more than anything. You should relish in everything that you’ve taken for granted before I takeaway the one thing that makes you feel special. I’m going to keep the promises that I made to Jamie going into Pain for Pride. I’m going to take back the championship that I made more prestigious than any other in this company. You’re the first step of many; a step that everyone is going to be forced to become.
Cameron: i’m going to break you.
Impact: You’re going to do nothing close.
(“Can I Live” picks back up as Impact drops his microphone and stares down as Cameron who now stands in the ring. Starr stands between the ring and ramp making sure that neither can get close to the other before the camera cuts to commercial.).
(The Devil in I by Slipknot starts to fill the arena, as Jason McKormick emerges from behind the curtain, down the ramp, and into the ring.)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, from Jackson, Michigan, weighing in at 235 pounds… “The Lunatic” JAAAASSSSOOONN MCCCKKKKOOOORRRRMIIIICCKKKK!!
Stew: Jason McKormick was able to pick up the win last week! An impressive showing, and I’m sure he wants to continue the success. Tonight he has a big challenge on his hands though, we’ll see if he can rise to the opportunity.
Talib: I’m sure he will! He really showed us something last week, and he seems like the real deal to me! Andrei should fear for his well being!
(“Your Kingdom” by VITJA plays throughout the arena as Andrei Sokolova makes his way down to the ring)
Stephie Love: Making his way to the ring… Residing in Doncaster, England, weighing in at 240 pounds… “The Agent of Chaos”… ANNDRREEIIII SOKOLOOOOOOVVAAAAAAA!!
Stew: I’m sure Andrei is pretty disappointed with how last week turned out last week against Kevin Hunter. I’m sure he has a point to make tonight, and I wouldn’t want to be the one standing int he ring across from this man tonight.
Talib: Are you kidding? Jascon Mckormick is a LUNATIC! Meaning he’s CRAZY! Meaning he won’t care what happens to him.. It’ll be a slugfest for sure! Don’t count Jason out, or he might just come after you next Stew.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: Andrei and Jason meet up in the middle of the ring, and start off with just striking at each other. Both taking swings with their fists at each other. Jason with takes a shot at Andrei, but he ducks it. Andrei swings at Jason, but he ducks it. Jason again takes a swing at Andrei, but Andrei ducks it, and hits Jason with a quick kick to the knee. It staggers Jason that didn’t see it coming. Another kick to the knee and it has Jason crumble down to one knee. Andrei looking to capitalize on this, and goes running off the ropes, and comes fulls steam right back at Jason. SPINEBUSTER!! Jason got up, and stopped Andrei in his tracks. He was absolutely planted into the canvas. Jason scrambles back to his feet, and reaches down and grabs Andrei by the hair to pull him back to his feet. He grabs a headlock onto Andrei, and starts punching Andrei furiously in the head. The ref is warning Jason about those closed fists. Jason seems to take exception over the ref doing his job, as he walks forward getting in the refs face.
Jason: Back up, you don’t tell me how to do what I do.
Talib: That’s right Jason! You tell the official to not officiate the rules! Who needs refs anyway, what are we children? We don’t need grown men baby sitters. If you can’t take a beating or dish one out without rules, then maybe you don’t belong here. SPINNING BACK HEEL KICK! Andrei hits Jason right in the face. Jason again staggers back, but catches himself and runs right back at Andrei, but Andrei saw it coming, and delivers a snap powerslam! That must’ve hurt! Andrei going for the pin.
Talib: Just a one count! Andrei is going to have to do more than that to keep Mckormick down! Andrei looks down at Jason and just pushes his head down. Mocking him! He gets back on his feet, and just pushes his head back down to the mat with his foot. Andrei clearly thinks he’s the superior of the two, and wants to show exactly why that is. He wants to embarrass Jason tonight. Andrei just places his foot on the throat of Jason, and steps up! And just stands there! Suffocating Jason!
Ref: One! Two! Three! Four!
Talib: Andrei has to be careful here because that is a choke. Luckily he steps off in time, but he’s acting as though he doesn’t know what he was doing. I’m sure he was fully aware that he was committing a crime. Andrei reaches down and picks McKormick backup, kick to the knee again! Spin kick to the stomach, makes Jason double over in pain. Andrei goes running off the ropes, looks like Andrei is going for a Curb Stomp! But Jason is able to move out of the way, and delivers a hard clothesline to Andrei, stopping the offense. Andrei now on the defense, and Jason is on the offensive.. I guess you could say it’s like an interception just happened! That’s football terms, I know you’re a loser that doesn’t watch sports Stew. You’re welcome.
Stew: I do watch sports, I watch professional gamers all the time on Twitch. Anyways. Jason brings Andrei back to his feet, and delivers a european uppercut! And another! Now he rears back and delivers a stiff chop to the chest of Andrei, and another! And back to European Uppercut! And another Europeon Uppercut! Forcing Andrei to get backed into the corner. Jason backs up glaring at the crowd, before turning his attention back to Andrei, running full speed right at Andrei, and delivers a big boot right to his face! Andrei crumbles down to the canvas, and Jason goes for the pin!
Ref: One! Two!
Stew: NO! Andrei was able to power out of it! This match is still going on. Jason gets up off Andrei and is getting right back into the face of the ref. You can tell that the gears are churning in his mind, trying to figure out what he must do to put Andrei down for the count. Seems like he thought of something because he’s in a crouched position over by the turnbuckle. Andrei is starting to stir; he’s slow to get up to his feet. OH he’s going for it, Andrei turns around right to where Jason is coming from.. THE LEGACY!!! ANDREI TURNED INTO A SEEING RED! RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE! Jason falls down to the mat, he didn’t see that coming at all. He picks Jason back up, CONTROL YOUR CHAOS, HE GOT ALL OF IT!! HE FALLS INTO THE PIN.
Ref: One! Two! Three!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stephie Love: The winner of this match.. ANDREIIII SOKOLOOOVVVAAAAA!!
(Andrei sits up with a grin on his face. He stands up, and goes to the corner and raises his arms to the crowd. He meets the ref in the middle of the ring, and gets his arm raises in victory officially. He takes his arm back, and rolls out of the ring, and makes his way up the ramp.)
Stew: Great job by Andrei here, it seemed as though Jason was going to get the win, but Andrei was able to turn it around. He has bounced back from last week, and has good things going into Revolution next week against Theron Nikolas!
Talib: That is exactly what he needed! He was able to put the Lunatic down, and has something going for him. Theron is going to be a tough challenge but if anyone can handle Theron, it’s Andrei!
Stew: Nothing, just seems like you changed your opinion about Andrei mid match..
Talib: No that was you. I’ve always been a believer! And with that, we’ll be right back folks!
(Video begins to play highlighting the four men that will compete for an opportunity to challenge for the Answers World Championship. The camera begins looking at Lucas Johnson highlighting his past New Breed Championship win and his time as champion. The camera then changes to Shaker Jones and highlights his time as the Big Bhaker Bhampion and his match at Pain for Pride against Woogieman. Cameron changes to Kevin Hunter highlighting his time in the company and his upset against Andrei Sokolova. The camera then cuts to a shot of Ryan Wilson and his time on Voltage. The camera cuts to a shot of all four separate competitors before cutting to a shot of the Answers World Championship. The camera cuts to commercial as the video ends.)
(The camera cuts backstage as medical staff rush towards a crowd of producers; the camera pushes through revealing an unconscious KMK laying face down on the concrete flooring.)
Medical Staff: What happened?
Producer: We don’t know; his match was meant to be next, but I found him out cold.
Medical Staff: Was there anyone around? Any weapons involved? We need to know so we can make an assessment on possible injuries.
Producer: Like I said, we didn’t see anything. I need to get in contact with Starr – the match is cancelled.
(The producer rushes off as the Medical Staff continues to work on KMK before the camera cuts to the ring. The ring is decorated in everything that marks a celebration. The camera finally reveals Mark Michaels standing in the ring with a giant smile on his face.)
Mark Michaels: Thank you, thank you. I’m glad to welcome every single person in this arena and standing backstage to my pre-revolution championship celebration to commemorate my future victory and becoming the new Hardcore Champion. I have been working so hard to finally Capture championship gold and while the process hasn’t gone exactly how I had planned it doesn’t make this any less satisfying. There isn’t any other person in this entire company that deserves this more than I do. There is not one person in this company that is given this company more exposure when I do. It takes one status update for this company to be seen by more people in 10 minutes by my hand then it has by Mr. DEDEDE’s. Everything that I’ve done for this company should make me the greatest legend this company has ever seen. It should make me the most valuable name in this entire business. Instantly at Revolution the Hardcore Championship becomes absolutely the most important championship in the world. While it is in my hands my championship becomes more important than any world championship on any brand in EAW. That’s how important I am.
(Mark Michaels smiles from ear to ear as the crowd roars with boos.)
Mark Michaels: But we can’t celebrate alone. There is one person that I would like to formally invite out here in front of the world to celebrate this with me. He is the man that I will defeat to take the championship that should already be around my waist. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome at this time the man who is 15 minutes I finally reaching its end. He is… JOHNNY VENTURA!!!!
(Mark Michaels points his hand towards the stage as nothing happens as the crowd continues to boo.)
Mark Michaels: Did you really believe that I would invite that worthless piece of garbage to my celebration? This is a celebration of winners and Johnny Ventura will not be a winner. He will be what he has been for the majority of his career. He will be one of the biggest losers this company has ever seen. He likes ask the question: WHO… IS…. NEXT? well I finally have an answer for the man – You’re next Johnny boy. Your return cut short because you are conquered by the man I should’ve always been the Hardcore Champion. Now I believe it would be appropriate if you wound all join me In a unanimous chant of my name.
(Michaels raises his hands into the air.)
Mark Michaels: MICH-AELS!! MICH-AELS!! MICH-AELS!!
(“Clocks” by Phillip Klein hits as Johnny Ventura makes his way through the curtain with a microphone in hand and the Hardcore Championship over his right shoulder.)
Mark Michaels: If you didn’t hear me, soon-to-be former champion – you’re not invited.
Johnny Ventura: I’m sorry, Mark, but I just couldn’t help myself. There’s no way that I couldn’t miss out on Mark Michaels’ celebration – because I don’t really know when I’m going to have the opportunity to attend another. In all actuality – only god knows if there’s actually going to be another one. But, when you feel like there’s something to celebrate, who am I to stop you. While you celebrate your upcoming defeat next week – I’ll celebrate my future victory and continuation of my Hardcore Championship reign.
(Michaels grits his teeth as a big smile crosses the face of Ventura.)
Johnny Ventura: Lets give these people what they want.
Mark Michaels: I already am.
Johnny Ventura: I got the perfect way for this to work. Let me help you, Mark. Obviously your attempt to make them chant your name isn’t working… but, thankfully
I’m a genius in knowing what these people want. I know how to get them reacting how I want them to. Are you ready, Mark? ARE YOU READY?! COME ON!!
(The crowd begin to cheer as a nasty scowl covers the face of Mark Michaels.)
Johnny Ventura: WHO IS NEXT!!
Johnny Ventura: WHO IS NEXT!!
Johnny Ventura: WHO IS NEXT!!
(Ventura continues as Mark Michaels storms around the ring trying to get everyone to stop.)
Johnny Ventura: Come on, Mark! Join in! This is what you wanted!
(Johnny drops the microphone as “Clocks” picks back up as the thousands in attendance continue to chant “Who Is Next” and “Michaels”. Ventura raises the Hardcore Championship as he laughs before the camera cuts back to commercial.)
(“A Story to Tell” by Woe, Is Me hits as Jack Ripley steps out from behind the curtain, onto the stage and starts down the ramp to make his way to the ring)
Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Approaching the ring first, from Las Vegas, Nevada… weighing in at 203 pounds… JACCCKKKKKK RIIIIPPPLEEEEEYYYY!!
(“Ill Ray” by Kasabian hits as Zed Diamant steps onto the stage with megaphone in hand. He begins marching down the ramp singing along to his theme song, taunting Jack Ripley along the way)
Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Santa Monica, California… weighing in at 175 pounds… ZEEEEDDDD DIAAMMMMANNNTTT!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew: The bell sounds and we’re off! Jack Ripley dances around the ring, a battle of two speedsters here tonight on Dynasty! Diamant gets his arms up… wanting a lock up… BUT THE SCRAPPY RIPLEY DOESN’T OBLIGE… INSTEAD STEPPING FORWARD AND DELIVERING A CHOP RIGHT ACROSS THE CHEST!!… DIAMANT RESPONDS WITH ONE OF HIS OWN… AND HERE WE GO!! WE’RE OFF!! A HOT START TO THIS ONE AS BOTH MEN BEGIN PUMMELING INTO ONE ANOTHER WITH A FURY OF RIGHTS AND LEFTS!! DIAMANT SEEMING TO GET THE EARLY ADVANTAGE HERE AS HE FORCES RIPLEY UP INTO THE CORNER!!
Bari: The referee stepping in between the two men here… a dangerous place to be… AND RIPLEY ABLE TO PUSH DIAMANT BACKWARDS, DIAMANT STUMBLES INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING BEFORE CATCHING HIS BALANCE… BUT HERE COMES JACK RIPLEY LOOKING FOR DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME!!… THAT KNEE RIGHT TO THE HEAD… BUT IT’S AVOIDED!! AVOIDED BY ZED DIAMANT WHO NOW GRABS THE LEG OF JACK RIPLEY, TAKES HIM DOWN AND APPLIES A GRAPEVINE LEG LOCK!! GRAPEVINE LEG LOCK APPLIED ON JACK RIPLEY AND DIAMANT IS REALLY WRENCHING BACK HERE!! BUT JACK RIPLEY, SITTING UP AND SENDING A FEW PUNCHES INTO THE HEAD OF ZED DIAMANT IS ENOUGH TO BREAK IT UP!! Not in the hold for long but PERHAPS some damage done!
Stew: You mention it, Jack Ripley is all about speed and speed isn’t worth much with a bum leg! Ripley is back to his feet… DIAMANT LUNGES FORWARD, LOOKING TO ATTACK THE LEG AGAIN BUT HE’S WRESTLED DOWN TO THE CANVAS BY RIPLEY… NOW DRIVING HIS KNEE DOWN INTO THE TRICEP!! JACK RIPLEY BACK TO HIS FEET, DIAMANT ISN’T FAR BEHIND HIM… SHAKING HIS ARM HERE… AND NOW WE GET A LOCK UP!! THE FIRST ONE OF THE MATCH… THOUGHT IT DOESN’T LAST LONG AS DIAMANT QUICKLY SHOOTS BEHIND RIPLEY… LIFTING HIM UP WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX AND CONNECTING!! A HIGH ANGLE GERMAN SUPLEX ONTO JACK RIPLEY!!
Bari: The drop causes Ripley to do a backwards somersault, a very dangerous move, damn near landing on his neck!

Stew: Wicked smart move by Diamant there, NEARLY catching Jack Ripley off guard but it wasn’t to be! Diamant is back to his feet… and A STOMP!! A STOMP RIGHT TO THE FACE OF JACK RIPLEY… AND A SECOND ONE!! TWO VICIOUS STOMPS!! And now Diamant begins pacing around the ring, it looks like he’s going to allow Ripley to make it back to his feet! Ripley reaches his hand out, now pushing it down into the floor to help him to his feet… you can tell those stomps did their damage, he isn’t all there right now!… DIAMANT TRIES FOR A RIGHT HAND BUT RIPLEY IS QUICKER TO THE LITERAL PUNCH… NOW QUICKLY HOOKING HIM AND PLANTING HIM SKULL FIRST WITH A DDT!!

Bari: Ripley thinking that quick combination might’ve been enough to get the job done but Diamant continues to fight on! Diamant near the ropes now, making his way to his feet… HE TURNS TO MEET RIPLEY… AND THIS TIME DIAMANT IS QUICKER!! A FOREARM TO THE JAW… A SECOND!!

Bari: THAT’S WHAT MAKES JACK RIPLEY SO DANGEROUS!! He’s a strike machine, hands, arms, legs, feet… it doesn’t matter! He has an arsenal that he can unleash on you from any place, at any time!
(Jack Ripley celebrates in the ring as the crowd suddenly erupts with a chorus of boos.)
Stew: IT’S THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION!!! IT’S DARKANE!!! RIPLEY DOESN’T SEE HIM – AND DARKANE CRACKS HIM OVER THE HEAD WITH THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!! RIPLEY GOES DOWN, BUT IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE THE TOP MAN ON DYNASTY IS FINISHED IN THE SLIGHTEST!!! RIPLEY IS IN A COMPLETE DAZE AS DARKANE BACKS INTO THE CORNER!!!

(The camera cuts to commercial as Ripley drapes the Answers World Championship over Darkane who grabs at his jaw.)
(Young and Bitter by Hot Tag Media plays as Lucas Johnson makes his way onto the stage, down the ramp, and into the ring. He looks over the crowd scoffing over how pathetic he feels they are)
Stephie Love: Introducing first, From Atlanta, Georgia, weighing in at 205 pounds… “The Wrestling Machine”.. LUUUUCAS JOOOOHHHNNNSOOOONNN!
Stew: Last week Lucas here had an impressive outing against Shaker Jones. As we know beating Shaker Jones is no easy feat, so a tip of the cap to him.
Talib: Just give him all the titles already! If he can beat Shaker Jones, he can beat anyone!
(Legendary by Tupac blares throughout the arena as a loud mix of cheers and boos echo’s out. Theron Nikolas makes his way onto the stage with his arms raised high.)
Stephie Love: And his opponent from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, weighing in at 210 pounds… He is representing the 1%… “Keyser Söze” … THERON NIIIIIIKKKOOOOLAAASSSS!!
Stew: This is one delusional man. You know I bet he spends his free time with a tin foil hat on his head, bitching about the government, and how we never landed on the moon. About how 9/11 never happened, and so one and so forth..
Talib: He has a legit gripe. You can’t tell me that he’s had fair opportunities here. This whole company is out to get him!
Stew: Ok, but he has the crown still, he can have that World title shot whenever he wants. Maybe he’s too scared to relinquish it because he’s afraid of the outcome. He won’t have a backup plan in place anymore, and he’ll actually have to EARN a title shot, again.
Talib: Shut up Stew, you don’t know anything.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew: Lucas starts off charging right at Theron, trying to get a fast start here! But Theron saw it coming and hits a drop toe hold on Lucas, sending him face first into the turnbuckle. Theron now has a smirk emerging on his face, he’s quite confident about this match already. Theron grabs Lucas by the hair, and pushes him up against the ropes. He releases him only to come right at him with a hard chop right to the chest. Lucas felt that one! He’s grasping at his chest, falling down to a knee. Theron isn’t done though as he picks Lucas back up to his feet, and goes for another chop! But Lucas is able to dodge that one, and greets Theron with an uppercut right to the jaw. Theron seems a little caught off guard! A kick to the gut, and it looks like Lucas is going to go for a DDT! But Theron is able to squirm out of it, Lucas comes right back at Theron with a clothesline, but Theron is able to dodge that. He stops in his tracks, turns around and delivers a beautiful drop kick right to the face of Lucas. He goes down, and rolls out of the ring. Lucas seems like he’s getting frustrated here.
Talib: It sure does Stew, it seems that everything he tries to do Theron has an answer for it. Oh no, and now Lucas is going for those steel steps, he’s picking them up. Lucas is in a rage right now! I guess that joy of beating Shaker didn’t transfer over to this week. The ref now getting in the face of Lucas, telling him that he’ll be disqualified if he uses them. Lucas is debating within his mind if he cares enough about getting disqualified. Lucas finally makes the decision that he does want to win the match, and drops the steps.. BUT THERON ISN’T WAITING ANY LONGER AS HE DIVES OVER THE ROPES AND HITS A SENTON RIGHT ON LUCAS JOHNSON. He picks Lucas back up, and rolls him into the ring. Lucas is staggering to his feet trying to catch his bearings, but Theron is going to make sure that he’s not able to… SUPERKICK! No! Lucas Johnson rolled under it. Theron coming back to Lucas, but he’s greeted by a BIG clothesline, turning Theron inside out. Here is Lucas Johnsons opening to get back into this match. He picks Theron back up, and whips him into the corner. He follow close behind, and hits a europeon uppercut that rocks Theron to the core!
Stew: Lucas keeps Theron in place, and starts delivering a shoulder to the gut, repeatedly! One after another! He delivers what seems to be the last one, but instead of letting Theron drop to the floor, he picks Theron up, and places him on the top turnbuckle. He follows him up, and it looks like Lucas is going for the superplex! Here he goes! NO! Theron is holding onto the ropes, and won’t budge. Lucas notices and starts hitting away at the hands of Theron trying to break the grip he has on the ropes. Theron relinquishes the ropes, and Lucas is able to pick him up! HE TWISTS THERON IN MID AIR, AND TURNS IT INTO A BACK BREAKER FROM THE TOP ROPE! INCREDIBLE! Lucas falls into the cover!
Ref: One! Two!
Talib: No! Theron was able to kick out of it! But what a move by Lucas Johnson there. Lucas now stalking the downed Theron, seeing where he can make his move. Lucas goes and stomps on the head of Theron, and stomps again on the head! And then stomps on his hand! And stomps on his other hand! Lucas is trying to just pick Theron a part here! What an outing by this young gentleman! Lucas now places himself behind Theron, he locks the waist, and just starts to deadlift German Suplex him! But Theron is starting to try to get out of it! Theron throwing elbows behind him, hitting the head of Lucas, and he has no choice but to let go of Theron. Theron comes right back and hit’s a running enziguri! And Lucas goes flying! He’s caught up on the ropes, and Theron might be able to take advantage here! Theron takes a hold of Lucas, and drags him back up to his feet.. Lucas with a thumb to the eye! Theron seems blinded … RED ARROW!
Stew: No! Theron got out of it, and is now setting Lucas Johnson up, SUPERKICK!! Lucas bounces off the ropes, and right back to Theron.. CHAOS THEORY!! Theron hits the Chaos Theory, and he falls into the pin..
Ref: One! Two! Threeee!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentleman the winner of this match.. THEROOOON NIKOLLAAAASSSSS!!
(Theron sits up after getting the pin, and makes the ref raise his hand while he’s sitting on the ground. After the ref raised his hand, he rolls all the way out of the ring, and makes his way back up the entrance ramp)
Stew: Another great showing here by Lucas Johnson, but in the end, it just wasn’t enough to overcome Theron tonight.
Talib: Tonight was a close one for Theron, he almost pulled off an upset here in my eyes. But Theron the talented son of a bitch that he is, was able to find a way to pull this thing out.
Stew: Now Theron must focus on Andrei, and I have to say I can’t wait for that match to happen!
(The camera cuts backstage to Starr sitting at his desk with HRDO standing next to him.)
Starr: Things are going nicely.
HRDO: It has definitely been an improvement, but it’s not about what I think. The board still aren’t too sure if you’re the man that should be in charge of this brand. It’s great that there’s a new flow of enthusiasm in the roster, but you need to keep it around.
Starr: I fully intend to do everything that I’ve promised.
HRDO: I truly hope so, Starr – because there is always someone else waiting for the opportunity to do what you can’t. I hope Revolution is a show to remember – I would hate for it to be your last.
(HRDO walks away as a nervous Starr sits at his desk before the camera fades to black.)
