(EAW intro plays.)
(The camera fades into a shot of the sold-out crowd inside of the Friend’s Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. Saudi dignitaries are seated at ringside, ready to see the show their money is being spent on. The fans are hyped and when the camera transitions to the darkened ring, a spotlight shines on the Swedish pop group, ABBA. Beautiful music begins to play and the popular artists begin to sing a medley of Christmas carols in Swedish.)
(As ABBA is performing, a video of various highlights showcasing the year in review for EAW begins to play. Some of the things shown include: Drake King capturing his first World Heavyweight Championship, The Visual Prophet being crowned King of Elite, the fiery ending of Cameron Ella Ava’s Answers World Championship reign, Rex McAllister winning Grand Rampage, Minerva using her Iconic Cup to become the Universal Women’s Champion, Prophetic Visions, Jamie O’Hara finally conquering Mr. DEDEDE at Pain for Pride, Serena Bennett dethroning Minerva in an instant classic at Bloodsport, Team Dynasty winning War Games, SOSA Henderson shocking everyone but himself as he puts Rex away to become a first-time EAW Champion, and the recap finishes with Jack Ripley overcoming Jamie to become Answers World Champion.)
(As the video fades out, ABBA concludes their performance. The fans give them a standing ovation, while the Saudis look pretty unimpressed. The camera then cuts to the broadcast booth where Gavin Kirkland, Stew-O, and Persephone Tsitsipas are standing by.)
Stew-O: MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Thank you for joining us on the EAW Network today! We are excited to bring to you our final show of 2020!
Gavin Kirkland: And tonight’s not just any show! All the winners of the 2020 EAW Year End Awards will be revealed. I can’t wait to see my baby Andrea Valentine rack up all the gold!
Persephone: Boring! Do we really want the audience to fall asleep listening to that dull ass bitch give an acceptance speech? No thank you! All I know is Rexy better win Male Elitist of the Year or I will set fire to this whole fucking place.
Stew-O: :whoa: Well that’s a bit extreme…
Persephone: So is my love for Rex.
Stew-O: In addition to the awards, we have a great card for you tonight. She shocked the world with her return at Road to Redemption, and tonight Eris Lecava steps back into the ring for the first time in years to take on promising newcomer, Holly Arrow.
Gavin Kirkland: Amber Keyes will take on one-half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, Harper Lee, in what will be her first match in more than a year. But man. Who can forget her barbed wire bra and panty match with Felix Hardly last season :mjlit:
Persephone: Sounds stupid, much like main event for tonight is. The Geriatric Wonder, Mr. DEDEDE, will take on that bumbling idiot Ronan Malosi in what I am sure will be a match even more boring than an Andrea Valentine acceptance speech
Stew-O: It’s going to be an amazing night, but I am excited to see who ends up taking home the trophies. So with that being said, let’s turn it over to Bella Braxton, who is going to introduce the host for tonight’s awards!
(The Voltage ring announcer is seen in the middle of the ring in a beautiful red sequined Fashion Nova dress with a high neckline because even though the show is in Sweden, she wants to be somewhat respectful of the Saudis and their fear of female flesh. She flashes the camera a smile.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen! Please join me in welcoming the host of tonight’s awards show… KOMATSU OGAWA!!!!
(“The Invisible Wall” by The Gazette begins to blast across the public address system and after a moment, a sharply dressed Komatsu Ogawa walks out. Ogawa wears a perfectly tailored avant-garde tux by Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto, and on the popular Elitist’s arm, is a beautiful Sailor Moon cosplayer. She kisses Ogawa on the cheek as they make their way across the stage and towards the podium. Ogawa flashes the camera a toothy smile and adjusts the microphone so he can speak.)
Komatsu Ogawa: こんにちは! Kon’nichiwa! Welcome everyone to ‘A Swedish-Saudi Christmas Miracle’ sponsored by our friends, the Saudi royal family! 2020 has been a trying year for the majority of us and it feels good that we are able to come together and end the year on a positive note in front of a sold-out crowd! I love the fact that Sweden doesn’t have any COVID-19 restrictions :wow:. I am beyond thrilled that EAW asked me to host the year end awards, and truthfully they couldn’t have asked for a better person than me! Presenting is a very important profession in my native Japan, and this is not my first rodeo when it comes to hosting awards! I remember several years ago, the great Japanese wrestling organization, Tokyo Joshi Pro, held their year end awards ceremony and I was asked to host it and present every award. I took that very seriously, and believe me, I was in complete awe of the incredible Japanese female wrestlers. Absolute legends such as Tyler Wolfe, Cloud Matsuda, and Revy were just some of the names that graced the stage that night.
(Ogawa looks confused as the crowd starts to boo. He thought for sure an EAW crowd would pop huge for those ghosts of Christmas past.)
Komatsu Ogawa: No? Well, anywho, it brings me a tremendous amount of pride to once again find myself in this position, and while I wish MITSUBACHI was nominated for every award, because he definitely deserves to win them all due to his incredible background in the art of Japanese Strong Style wrestling, I absolutely can not wait to see who takes home this year’s coveted Male Elitist of the Year and Female Elitist of the Year awards.
(A large smile crosses Ogawa’s face and a drumroll begins to play.)
Komatsu Ogawa: That being said… THE FIRST AWARD OF THE NIGHT IS…
(A graphic saying “Most Improved” flashes across the screen.)
Komatsu Ogawa: And the nominees for “Most Improved” Elitist are… LIMMY MONAGHAN! DRAY FONTANA! SHANE GATES! RONAN MALOSI! AND LISA WREN!!!
(Sailor Moon cosplayer Ogawa a gold envelope. Ogawa makes a big show of opening it up and reading the name to himself.)
Komatsu Ogawa: And the winner is…. DRAY FONTANA!!!
(The crowd pops for this. “Pure Water” by Skepta begins to play and the former PURE Champion, Dray Fontana, walks out. He accepts his award from Sailor Moon and Ogawa steps back from the podium. Dray looks at his award and then out at the crowd.)
Dray Fontana: It doesn’t surprise me really at all to receive this award because I look at where I started on Showdown last season to where I’m at now, and literally none of the other nominees can compare to me. Last season, I set my sights on the PURE Championship and watched Harlow Reichert and Jake Smith battle back and forth for it. I never got my chance at it, but when Xander Payne and I were both drafted to Dynasty, I had a feeling our paths would cross for that belt at some point. Pure wrestling is right up my alley because there’s no doubt that I’m one of the best in the world. This sport was made for people like me, people who put the work in and do their job to the best of their abilities week after week. When my chance came at the beginning of the season, there was no way I was going to lose it. I had my eyes on the prize, and nothing was going to strike any fear in me. I’m immune to fear. I’m ‘The Prince’ after all, and that championship was to be my crown. I’ve always said I’m the type of person to shoot for the stars and aim for the moon, and I shocked the world when I kept Xander from defending that championship back at Operation: Doomsday.
Dray Fontana: Xander got a lot of hype last season. He scored some notable wins, battled for the Answers World Championship on a couple of occasions, and came extremely close to winning it. When he took down Jake at Pain for Pride, a lot of people were expecting him to have a long, lengthy reign with the PURE Championship. I’m sure people expected even more than that from him. I wasn’t shocked when I successfully played the role of spoiler and left Xander with egg on his face. Most champions get at least one defense under their belt but not Xander and that was because of me. I’m more than happy with the way my own reign went. Even if it came to a screeching halt the other weekend, I’m far from through. This ‘Most Improved’ award is the first of many I plan on winning, and 2021 is going to bring even more opportunities my way. I have proven myself on Dynasty. I’ve held my own inside the ring with the best this sport has to offer. I’ve put on classic matches and have shown that I’m championship material through and through. I already know what my next move is going to be, and what I have my eyes set on next. I’m going to once again shock everyone but myself with the heights I reach this upcoming year. I can promise you that at this time next year, I’m going to be standing on this stage once again, accepting yet another award, and next time, it’ll be that Male Elitist of the Year trophy.
(The crowd pops because they appreciate Dray’s confidence. No one can deny that he came into his own as a competitor this past year.)
Dray Fontana: 2020 was full of plenty of ups and downs, both personally and professionally for all of us. I was looking for new life when Pain for Pride ended and the draft came around. Dynasty was that fresh start for me. It gave me the spark I had been lacking. I got my head right and focused on becoming better than ever, and as a result, I turned myself into a talent that can not be denied. I truly am the most improved, and as great as this award is, I’ll make sure it’s not the only thing that defines me going forward. The PURE Championship was just the beginning. 2021 is about to be even better for Dray Fontana. Thank you.
(“Pure Water” begins to play once again and Dray takes his trophy, stepping back from the podium. He poses with it for a few photos before Sailor Moon comes onstage to usher him off, and the camera transitions back down to the broadcast booth.)
Persephone: I literally have never seen anyone with worse acne scars. I mean, can we please get Dray Fontana a good skincare routine?
(Stew-O is seen glaring at Persephone.)
Stew-O: That’s completely irrelevant to absolutely everything that just happened. Dray Fontana just picked up the award for ‘Most Improved’ and he is so deserving. I don’t think anyone could have seen Dray rising up the ranks like he has on Dynasty so far, and one moment that really stood out to me personally when it comes to Dray is his amazing match with Impact back at House of Glass. Impact is one of the all-time greats and it’s rare that we see someone outsmart him in the ring, and that’s exactly what Dray did.
Persephone: Well, he stabbed him in the fat. Is that really outsmarting him?
Gavin Kirkland: It kept Impact from winning the PURE Championship, didn’t it?
Persephone: But like why was that belt even being defended at a show like House of Glass? That’s not ‘pure’.
Stew-O: Touche. Either way you slice it, Dray Fontana is the ‘Most Improved’ Elitist of 2020 and on behalf of my broadcast colleagues, we wish him congratulations!
Persephone: Sure don’t!
Gavin Kirkland: The award should have went to Lisa Wren’s phat fuckin’ ass 😀
(Stew-O can be seen rolling his eyes to the back of his head. He is surely going to be in for a long night with these two by his side, and on that note, EAW fades into its first commercial break of the evening.)
(Commercial break for Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask featuring Jake Smith. The popular Korean beauty sheet mask is infused with fermented snail mucin and helps restore the elasticity to your face :wow:.)
(‘A Sweet Swedish-Saudi Christmas Miracle’ returns from commercial break as we see Bella Braxton standing in the ring holding an EAW-Branded microphone.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: ONE FALL!
(‘House of the Rising Sun’ by The Animals plays through the speakers as John Cox walks through the curtains onto the stage.)
Stew-O: Out comes John Cox, a newcomer to EAW like his opponent, only difference being he is a lot more fresh, and a lot more hungry judging by how he likes to portray himself! But in this match, he doesn’t have as much to prove as the other two men.
Gavin Kirkland: That’s an understatement, alright!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 202 pounds… JOHN… COX!!!
(John Cox slides into the ring, before standing up and raising a singular arm. His theme then fades out, to be replaced by ‘Demi Gods’ by Lab Rat and Slim Jim. The Fallen Angel slowly makes his way onto the stage, to a chorus of cheers.)
Stew-O: At Road to Redemption, The Fallen Angel put in a great performance in the Extreme Enigma Memorial Battle Royal, but he didn’t win it, and tonight he looks to prove that he CAN win a match. That he WILL win a match. He’s more confident than ever, and he looks to pose a threat towards anyone he faces afterwards!
Gavin Kirkland: Y’know, the match Bashar Jackson was in? The match I’m sure Bashar Jackson wishes he won? And now he’s going to beat The Fallen Angel, whatever his real name may be, just to prove that he SHOULD have won!
Bella Braxton: Introducing next, hailing from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in at 240 pounds… THE FAAAAAAAAALLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN AAAAAAAAAANGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL!!
(The Fallen Angel walks up the ring steps and enters the ring. He poses in the corner, before his theme is abruptly cut off by ‘All I Know’ by Da Real Gee Money. Bashar Jackson walks onto the stage, before squatting. He then raises his fingers into the air, with a grin on his face.)
Gavin Kirkland: Speaking of such, here comes the man who truly feels like he NEEDS this victory tonight, Bashar Jackson! A man who, sadly, came up short, but doesn’t look to come up short again! Instead he wants to win, and he strives to win. One opponent? Two opponents? Seven opponents? He doesn’t care how many, nothing is stopping him from becoming the next big thing!
Stew-O: And of course, he can do that tonight, but he does have a challenge ahead of him. Neither John Cox nor Fallen Angel are men to take lightly, I at least presume for the former, and I’m sure Bashar is aware of that.
Gavin Kirkland: They’re no match for Bashar, I’ll tell you that.
Bella Braxton: Introducing their opponent… hailing from Brooklyn, New York… weighing in at 215 pounds… THE THUG… BASHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR JAAAAAAAACKSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!
(Bashar Jackson slides onto the apron, before posing once more. He then slides into the ring, and enters his corner, as his theme fades out.)
Gavin Kirkland: Oh hey hot stuff, when did you get here?
Persephone: 1. A while ago. 2. Do NOT call me that unless you want to walk out of here with that nose of yours still working.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: And we are underway! John Cox and The Fallen Angel represent Dynasty tonight, whereas Bashar Jackson is representing Showdown! All of these men want victories, but two of them in particular look to avenge their losses at Road to Redemption! Which man will come out on top however? Will it be John Cox, the one not involved in that Battle Royal? Will it be The Fallen Angel, or will it be Bashar Jackson? We are about to find out here tonight as this triple threat match kicks off right now! Bashar, Cox and Angel all walk closer to each other, as they stare each other down!
Bashar Jackson: (off-mic) You ain’t even in my league! You both NOBODIES!
Stew-O: Bashar grins and smiles at the two, BEFORE HE’S KNOCKED DOWN WITH A DOUBLE ENZUIGIRI, CRUSHING HIS HEAD! HE FALLS DOWN TO HIS KNEES, BEFORE THEY LOOK TO ROUNDHOUSE HIM!- NO! HE DUCKS AND THEY KICK EACH OTHER!
Gavin Kirkland: Bashar Jackson got way in over his head, expecting to be able to trash talk both of them and get away with it, but unfortunately for him, he didn’t get away with anything. He has a slight opening, however, and he looks to capitalize! Bashar Jackson quickly tries to knock both men down with a double lariat to the back of their heads, but they hear it coming, and they duck! Bashar runs the ropes, as both men look for a dropkick on Bashar- only for him to hook his arms over the top rope, dropping Fallen Angel and John Cox straight to the floor! Jackson then sprints forward and hits a penalty kick straight into Fallen Angel’s face, before rebounding behind John Cox and hitting a snapmare! No wait! John ducked, and Bashar flips over onto his back!
Stew-O: John Cox has easily soothed his way into control of this match, as he gets up to his feet before Bashar does! John Cox hits Bashar in the lower back with a double axe handle, slowing down his recovery, and putting him in a perfect position right now! John Cox follows up with a knee to the chest, rocking Bashar Jackson! Cox now grabs Bashar over his shoulder, and under his right leg, looking to hit him with a huge exploder suplex! He pulls backwards, ready to flip him over, but The Falling Angel pushes Bashar forward, before he’s able to be thrown over John Cox’s shoulders, before lifting Cox up and attempting a backbreaker!
Gavin Kirkland: John Cox quickly slips out of it however, flying over Angel’s shoulder, and locking him around the waist! He looks to hit a German Suplex but once again, it’s fought out of, as Angel shuffles forward and runs up Bashar’s torso, before backflipping over John Cox! Using John’s strength and Bashar’s positioning to force himself to his feet, before pushing Cox forward! He bounces off Bashar, but neither are knocked down, just stunned, until The Fallen Angel drops them both with lariats-
Stew-O: But both of them duck at the same time, in synchronization! Although, it does seem like John Cox pulled Bashar down ever so slightly, as he has a visible hold on his wrist! The Fallen Angel turns around, as John Cox makes use of that wrist lock! He throws the arm into Angel’s face, forcing a backhand slap, before sweeping Bashar’s leg, dropping him down to his hands and knees! John Cox takes a few steps back, before running forward, leaping on top of Bashar’s back, before bouncing off and HITTING A TORNADO DDT ONTO THE FALLEN ANGEL! WHAT THE HELL!?!?
Gavin Kirkland: AMAZING show of athleticism and agility from John Cox right there, I did NOT expect that whatsoever! I didn’t think a rookie would be able to have a form that solid, but hey, color me impressed! The only bad thing is he isn’t looking to capitalize and cover, something any Elitist should do! John Cox grabs Bashar by his hair, and lifts him to his feet, before running the ropes!
Bashar Jackson: (off-mic) FUCK YOU!
Gavin Kirkland: OH! BUT BASHAR KNOCKS HIM BACKWARDS AS HE CONNECTS WITH A HUGE PALM STRIKE TO THE NOSE, WHICH SEEMS TO HAVE BROKEN THAT NOSE! JOHN COX FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES, AS BLOOD DRIPS DOWN HIS CHIN, AT THE SPEED OF A WATERFALL!
Persephone: Blood? Alright, NOW I’m interested!
Stew-O: But John Cox is stopping himself from falling! His back is dropping to the ground, but his legs are remaining standing up, like he’s stuck on a loop of a falling animation! Almost cartoonishly, in fact! Oh but it seems he’s alright, as he stands up straight and gives everyone a thumbs up.
John Cox: (off-mic) :whew: I’m okay!
Stew-O: Oh… It seems he was in fact NOT okay, because as soon as he said that, he fell forward onto his face, and now he is no longer moving! Bashar Jackson looks down at this, shrugs, and takes the first cover of the match!
Stew-O: But it’s broken up however! The Fallen Angel, in the nick of time, dives on top of Bashar Jackson, pushing him off of John Cox to save the match for himself! But that makes me wonder, if he wasn’t awake, would Bashar Jackson have picked up the victory? John Cox seemed to have been completely taken out by that palm strike to the nose, and fun fact about broken noses, they are incredibly dangerous, just as dangerous as a broken neck. Only difference is they aren’t going to take years off your career like a neck injury would. But if the bone goes up too far into the brain, then that’s it, your life is over.
Gavin Kirkland: Well that’s morbid to suggest after he began bleeding from the nose! Who do you think you are putting that kind of imagery into the people’s heads? There are CHILDREN watching this show! CHILDREN! IT IS CHRISTMAS IN TWO DAYS AND YOU ARE GIVING THEM NIGHTMARES!
Stew-O: We aren’t a PG Show, if you think about it, children shouldn’t be watching to begin with. Besides, they’ve already seen worse on EAW. They’ll be fine.
Persephone: You guys are fucking dorks.
Gavin Kirkland: You’re not too bad yourself, honey. How about we get outta here and… get a drink?
Persephone: Please go back to crying about children.
Gavin Kirkland: Playing hard to get eh?
Stew-O: Bashar Jackson and The Fallen Angel both rise to their feet at the same time, as they have a stare off, whilst John Cox begins to sit up! Bashar looks angry with The Fallen Angel, before they both notice John Cox, the man that took both of them out on his own! The Fallen Angel then soccer kicks John straight into the back!
Bashar Jackson: (off-mic) Oh you tryna say you’re better than me now?
Stew-O: Bashar seems to be taking this a bit too competitively, as HE kicks John Cox straight in the chest, making sure his kick sounds to be harder than The Fallen Angel’s! Fallen Angel stares at Bashar, before kicking John in the back!
Gavin Kirkland: Bashar feels disrespected at this, so he returns the fire by kicking John Cox in the chest even harder than last time! The slap of his leg meeting the flesh rings throughout the arena, making a disgusting yet brutal noise in the process! The Fallen Angel quickly kicks John in the back, making an even nastier sound as his boot hits the back! Bashar kicks again, and it’s even NASTIER!
Stew-O: Fallen Angel kicks! Bashar Jackson kicks! Fallen Angel kicks! Bashar kicks! Fallen Angel! Bashar! Fallen Angel! Bashar! Back and forth back and forth, kick after kick, rapid fire attempts at one upping each other, whilst John Cox sits there in pain! My god, this is brutal!
Gavin Kirkland: Both men now take a few steps back, before they run forward and hit a DOUBLE PENALTY KICK! They crush John Cox’s back and ribs in between their feet, and not even to deal damage to him, at least from Bashar’s point of view! This in its entirety was designed to be a back and forth between him and The Fallen Angel, in order to find out who exactly is the strongest between the two! And ironically enough, we didn’t even find out just yet, because both of them delivered the same offense!
Stew-O: But now that “same offense” is switched up, because Bashar Jackson quickly slips behind The Fallen Angel and wraps his arms around his head! He looks to lock in the ‘New York Killa’ Coquina Clutch, but The Fallen Angel quickly counters with a snapmare, rolling Bashar over his shoulder! Bashar quickly gets to his feet however, only to turn around INTO A ‘COLLAPSING STAR’ DIAMOND CUTTER- NO! BASHAR JACKSON PUSHES HIM FORWARD INTO THE ROPES! FALLEN ANGEL BOUNCES OFF AND TURNS AROUND, BEFORE RETALIATING WITH A ‘REALIGNER’ SUPERKICK STRAIGHT TO BASHAR’S FACE! BASHAR HAS JELLY LEGS, BUT IN ONE LAST RUSH OF ENERGY, LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND HITS THAT ‘BLOODY KNIVES’ CODEBREAKER! ALL THREE MEN ARE DOWN!
Gavin Kirkland: Bashar Jackson and The Fallen Angel are giving it their all here tonight, whether that be fighting each other, or seeing who can kick John Cox the hardest! They fully insist on beating each other down, just for that one golden opportunity called victory.
Persephone: There’s no way you’re going to claim whoever wins this has “victory” and get away with it. I could be at home watching true victory, rewatching Rex beat that whore at Pain for Pride, but instead I have to listen to your bullshit.
Gavin Kirkland: I mean we don’t have to stay here if you know what I’m talking about. 😉
Stew-O: Bashar Jackson and The Fallen Angel begin to awaken, rolling onto their stomachs, and crawling towards each other! They hit a signature move on each other, but unfortunately enough for them, they weren’t able to capitalize, and now they’re left with no other option but to beat each other down some more! They get to their knees, and grab each other by the hair, before laying into each other with punches! Driving their knuckles into the forehead of their opponent, putting more power into the punches rather than speed!
Gavin Kirkland: But look at Bashar’s punches! He leaves his knuckle there for a split second, and begins to scrape it around before he pulls away! Fallen Angel looks to feel the effects of this too, as he flinches every time before he throws a punch! OH AND BASHAR INSTEAD TARGETS THE EYE, DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE DID BEFORE, DRIVING THE EDGE OF HIS KNUCKLE THAT STICKS OUT THE MOST INTO THE UPPER EYE, BEFORE SCRAPING IT AROUND! THAT IS GOING TO DO A TON OF DAMAGE, AS THE FALLEN ANGEL KNOWS! HE TRIES TO PUSH THE ARM AWAY, BUT HE CAN’T EXACTLY DO MUCH-
Stew-O: OH BUT HERE’S JOHN COX! HE APPEARS FROM BEHIND BASHAR AND PULLS HIM AWAY, BEFORE HOOKING THE ARM AND THE LEG! EXPLODER SUPLEX INTO THE FALLEN ANGEL! ‘THE HOTSPOT HANGOVER’ TO BASHAR JACKSON SEES JOHN COX FLIPPING HIM INTO THE FALLEN ANGEL! HE JUST SANDWICHED HIM IN BETWEEN BASHAR AND THE MAT! JOHN COX QUICKLY ROLLS OVER TO THE FALLEN ANGEL, AND HOOKS HIS LEFT LEG! HE COVERS HIM, AND IT COULD BE OVER!
Gavin Kirkland: THE FALLEN ANGEL KICKS OUT! SOMEHOW HE FIGURES OUT A WAY TO KICK OUT AFTER BEING FLATTENED BY A HUMAN BODY! THAT IS 215 POUNDS BEING FLUNG ON TOP OF YOU, NOT TO MENTION WHAT’S BELOW YOU! WOOD, WITH THIN PROTECTION! BUT JOHN COX DOESN’T WASTE ANY TIME! HE CRAWLS OVER TO BASHAR JACKSON AND BEGINS TO COVER HIM INSTEAD!
Stew-O: BUT NOT EVEN BASHAR JACKSON WILL ALLOW JOHN COX TO COME OUT VICTORIOUS! AND THIS ENRAGES JOHNATHAN! HE STRIKES THE MAT, BEFORE ARGUING WITH THE REFEREE!
John Cox: (off-mic) Listen here bitch, that’s a three!
Gavin Kirkland: That, in fact, was not a three.
John Cox: (off-mic) I’m gonna do it again, and you’re going to count THREE! Got it?
Stew-O: BUT HE WON’T GET TO DO IT AGAIN, AS HE’S ROLLED UP BY BASHAR JACKSON!
Gavin Kirkland: THE REFEREE COUNTS THREE! IT’S OVER!
Stew-O: WAIT A SECOND, HE CALLS BACK HIS COUNT! BASHAR JACKSON’S FEET WERE ON THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND HE NOTICED IT AT THE LAST SECOND!
Gavin Kirkland: That’s bullshit! Ropes schmopes, John Cox didn’t kick out! And I’m sure Bashar didn’t cheat! Because look who’s on the outside, next to those feet! THE FALLEN ANGEL!
Stew-O: That doesn’t matter, whether The Fallen Angel did that or not, Bashar’s feet were on the ropes, meaning he was out of bounds!
Gavin Kirkland: Whatever! Bashar Jackson is looking to finish it off right now! He lifts John Cox off the ground, and lifts him up into the firemans carry position! He looks to hit that GTS, the first move in the ‘Jackson Special’ combination, which will undoubtedly put away John Cox here tonight, and in brutal fashion too!
Stew-O: BUT WAIT! ON THE TOP ROPE, THE FALLEN ANGEL STANDS, AND BASHAR JACKSON DOESN’T EVEN REALIZE! FALLEN ANGEL LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE, AND HITS A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO JOHN COX’S BACK, WHILST HE’S ON TOP OF BASHAR’S SHOULDERS, WHICH CAUSES BASHAR’S GRIP TO LET GO DUE TO THE ADDED PRESSURE! THE FALLEN ANGEL ROLLS TO HIS FEET, BEFORE BOTH MEN RUN AT EACH OTHER! THEY MEET IN THE MIDDLE, WHERE FALLEN ANGEL TAKES CONTROL! ‘NEURAL COLLAPSE’!! THE EVENFLOW DDT!
Persephone: REX EFFECT! REX EFFECT! HE HIT THE MOVE! HE STOLE THE MOVE, BUT I GUARANTEE THIS WILL HAND HIM VICTORY, AS IT DOES REX! FALLEN ANGEL COVERS, BUT BASHAR ROLLS AWAY! BITCH, LET HIM PIN YOU! STOP MAKING REX’S MOVE LOOK BAD!
Gavin Kirkland: Stop obsessing over Rex McAllister, damn. Act professional.
Persephone: There’s a blonde bimbo in the crowd.
Gavin Kirkland: WHAT!??! WHERE!?!?
Stew-O: The Fallen Angel gets to his knees, looking quite ticked off that he was unable to make that pinfall, but I know that he’s not going to let that phase him whatsoever! Bashar Jackson may be out of the ring right now, but there’s one man who isn’t, BUT HE’S A MAN WHO’S STOOD UP BEHIND FALLEN ANGEL! JOHN COX IS STOOD UP, AND NOW HE HAS AHOLD OF THE FALLEN ANGEL! ‘DREAM KILLER’ DRAGON SLEEPER! THE DRAGON SLEEPER IS LOCKED IN- WAIT, NO IT’S NOT! FALLEN ANGEL ROLLS BACKWARDS ONTO HIS FEET TO ESCAPE THE HOLD, AND ESCAPING ANY CHANCE AT SUBMITTING! JOHN COX DOESN’T REALIZE THIS, AS HE’S STILL HOLDING INTO FALLEN ANGEL’S HEAD! NOT FOR LONG HOWEVER, BECAUSE HE’S LIFTED UP OFF THE GROUND, ONTO FALLEN ANGEL’S SHOULDERS! HE’S IN A TORTURE RACK POSITION, BUT NOT FOR LONG!
Gavin Kirkland: ‘ROARING CANNON’ BURNING HAMMER! HE DROPPED JOHN COX ONTO THE DOME OF HIS HEAD, THIS COULD BE OVER! COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: YES! BASHAR JACKSON IS HERE TO BREAK UP THE PINFALL!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gavin Kirkland: WHAT!?!?!? HE BROKE IT UP! WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE??
Stew-O: Gavin, my friend… it appears Bashar was a split second LATE!
Gavin Kirkland: N-NO!
Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… THE FALLEN AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL!
(‘Demi Gods’ by Lab Rat and Slim Jim hits the speakers, as The Fallen Angel rolls out of the cover to celebrate, however Bashar still lies there, hand extended, eyes widened, in a state of disbelief.)
Stew-O: Bashar Jackson can’t believe it! He was just a millisecond too late, and he unfortunately came up short, but take nothing away from him, he was a tad late, but he still performed at his utmost best!
Gavin Kirkland: I demand a recount! There is no way he didn’t break it up!
Stew-O: I’m sorry, but The Fallen Angel won, and clean. You may not like it or agree with it, but that man is your winner! Congratulations!
(As The Fallen Angel celebrates on the top rope, with a shocked Bashar Jackson on the floor behind him, the show fades out to commercial.)
(A commercial airs featuring Lucas Johnson breaking into Conor McGregor’s house. Unfortunately he only finds Dark Demon and ends up locked in a basement.)
(We see Ryan Wilson, the esteemed General Manger of the Showdown Brand in his mock office, kicked up on his desk leaning back in his chair, full wrestling gear on his cellphone just as Andrea Valentine walks in not looking very happy.)
Ryan Wilson: I told you not to worry, it doesn’t count, besides we all it was cheap anyway. You are in good standing with me, I always treat those who scratched my back well and that is all you have done. Enjoy your Christma….. right, Hanukkah and everything will be sorted out on the first Showdown of the new year. Okay, talk to you soon, bye.
(Looking up at Andrea who folds her arms in clearly annoyed, lets out a sigh, Ryan wants one of his top stars to feel not only welcomed but also feel like they are an integral part of the Showdown brand.)
Andrea Valentine: Are you done talking to that crazy bitch?
Ryan Wilson: Whoa! Slow down here Andrea, you came to see me, and we are on the cusp of Christmas, let us spread cheer for everyone! You are one of my top stars and gracing me in the office with your beautiful presence only brings smiles to everyone’s faces! I know what will cheer you up, want some Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark, it is exploding Holidays in your mouth! Here have some, it’s so goooood.
Andrea Valentine: I don’t want your fucking peppermint bark. This isn’t some social visit or that I even want to converse with you about anything other than business.
Ryan Wilson: Ah well th…..
Andrea Valentine: Goo, shut up now I am talking, and this is all about Harlow Reichert. I am not going to beat around the bush here, Ryan, bottom line, after Harlow and I have our match at the first Showdown of 2021, we are done, that means she can’t even breathe the same air as me, she cannot occupy any of my space, I want her away from me, kept apart, no chance to wrestle me, this is it, over and done with. Now, let me be clear, I am not asking you, I am demanding it.
(Ryan pauses, sitting up and thinking for a moment.)
Ryan Wilson: Okay, I hear what you are saying but….
(Andrea cuts him off again….)
Andrea: …. But nothing. We are done and since I am on the subject, I want in the King of Elite Tournament, which means that Harlow CANNOT be in no matter what happens in our match, and since you are going to give me what I ask for, and keep us separated, correct? I mean, you don’t want to have one of your top stars all disgruntled, right?
Ryan Wilson: Of course not, that is not the businessman I am, I want to make sure that someone as bright and talented as you, a former and future World Champion again, like a few other handpicked talent that I know will carry Showdown on their back are happy and proud to be wrestling in the Blue Brand, which means more than ever that I am completely agreeing with you in the aspect that yes, you and Harlow should never have to interact again after your match on the first Showdown of the 2021 campaign.
(Arching and eyebrow, Andrea tapping her heels on the floor waiting for more…..)
Andrea Valentine: And?
Ryan Wilson: Yes, and I am giving you the FINAL spot for the King of Elite Tournament that way, you will not have to worry about Harlow anymore, as she will be kept out of it and that only means one thing, that you two will never have to interact again AND you now have a chance to represent Showdown in the King of Elite Tournament, how does that sound?
Andrea Valentine: That sounds quite lovely but…..
(Suddenly she hears a noise, turning around quickly waiting to fight, when Ryan stands up and walks up to her, she turns startled at him so close, she pushes the GM back.)
Andrea Valentine: Don’t you ever sneak up on me like that! Personal Space!
Ryan Wilson: Are you okay, Andrea? Harlow doesn’t have you all worried, does she, even though you did cost her the Specialists Chamber match at Road To Redemption, I am sure she isn’t too thrilled about that at all but I can assure you that my office here is a safe place, you have nothing to be alarmed about.
Andrea Valentine: Harlow has ME worried!?
(She bursts out in a very loud and sarcastic laugh.)
Andrea Valentine: Riiiiight, that was a good one. Now, before I was rudely interrupted by the rats in this building, if I am in the King of Elite Tournament which we all know I will win and represent Showdown come the FPV, who is my opponent?
Ryan Wilson: Funny that you asked, because I was thinking that what you need Andrea is to be tested by one of the bright, young and talented competitors on the Showdown brand that has a very successful future especially with one of my favorites and personal Doctor, Bethany Blue. That being Alexis Chambers.
(Andrea snickers a little, clearing her throat and trying to act impressed, when she is far from it.)
Andrea Valentine: Alexis Chambers? Wow, what an awesome opponent, I couldn’t have asked for anything better to be challenged with and prove that I am the very best on this brand.
Ryan Wilson: Excellent, then we are on the same page, and I cannot say how proud I am to have you here with us on the Showdown brand. So it is settled then, after the next Showdown you will never have to worry about Harlow Reichert again, and I would like to say good luck in the King of Elite Tournament.
Andrea Valentine: I don’t need luck, I’m the best thing you have.”
Ryan Wilson: Yes, you are.
Andrea Valentine: Damn right.
(She slowly starts to back away and then out the door, opening it slowly and looking around before exiting and slamming it shut. Ryan smiles while nodding his head, proud of how that all went down.)
(A Sweet Swedish-Saudi Christmas Miracle fades back in to show Komatsu Ogawa with a new set of cards in his hand as he would look at them before looking back up to the camera as he would begin to speak)
Komatsu Ogawa: Welcome back! Our next award is to show Next Up in 2021 here in EAW! The future of the entirety of this company, I think we all know who should win this one right here. Already standouts in 2020, the winner of this could just show that 2021 is the year that they could seize the moment and breakout! Sounds alot like someone I know… like y’know… the great MITSUBACHI of Japan… coincidentally those last few winners have all left before the next year had ended other than The Visual Prophet who won the award last year, but a part of me believes after Road To Redemption that he died so we’ll never really know. :lupe: Let’s get them nominees!
(From there it goes to the highlight reel showing the nominees for Next Up and the highlights from their tenure so far in EAW:
-Dr. Bethany Blue
-Candice Blair Ava)
(It then goes back to Komatsu who is quickly going back through the notes in confusion before quickly looking back up at the camera)
Komatsu Ogawa: Might’ve just been a typo. :mjcry: But ladies and gentlemen the winner of Next Up in 2021… recovering smoking addict… BRONSON DANIELS!!!
(‘Runnin’ by 21 Savage & Metro Boomin hits, and the crowd bursts into cheers as Bronson Daniels makes his way out to the stage. Bronson walks up to the podium with a smile on his face, before looking towards the crowd who are all cheering for him. After a few seconds Komatsu Ogawa hands him his trophy and steps back, giving Bronson the opportunity to speak.)
Bronson Daniels: You know, when I first made it to EAW my goal like many others was to make it to the top of this industry. Since then I had tons of opportunities. Some of them I won, others I didn’t. I got to compete in the Grand Rampage match, I competed at Pain for Pride and even won the New Breed Championship there, shit I just competed for the Answers World Championship inside of an Extreme Elimination Chamber. Time and time again I had these opportunities and you know damn well I made the most out of each opportunity even no matter who believed in me and who didn’t. At the time, losing the New Breed title sucked. It really did, but I’m destined for bigger and better things. I have so much more to offer, and my performance just last week? That was only the beginning.
Bronson Daniels: Even through loss I showed you all what I was capable of last week. I proved that I can hang with even the best Showdown has to offer, and we’re gonna be seeing a whole lot more of that in the new year. I may not be a Champion right now, but it’s only a matter of time ‘till I get my due. I’ll get right back to the top of the mountain, ‘cause that’s where I belong. I belong at the top of the mountain, in the title picture, and in all these big time matches, and at this rate don’t be surprised when I make it right back to that level. I know I have what it takes. I always have. All this award does is prove everything I’ve been saying right.
Bronson Daniels: This Next Up award, don’t think I don’t appreciate it. This award perfectly embodies my mindset going into 2021 because as far as I’m concerned, the rest of this season is mine. Not everyone expected me to not only make it to Pain for Pride, but walk out of it with the New Breed Championship and I still did it. Not everyone expected me to make it as far as I did in that Extreme Elimination Chamber, and if I was just a teeny bit faster I would’ve gone so much further. Going into 2021 I think it’s time y’all stop being so surprised. I think it’s time y’all start appreciating the talent you have in front of you, because as far as I’ve already come this year I can only get better. I’m gonna keep proving my doubters wrong, keep showing out, and keep making a name for myself until my name goes down in the history books. I don’t know what the future holds but one thing is for sure. I’mma be here for a very long time, and I’ll reach greater heights than I ever did before.
(‘Runnin’ hits once again, and the crowd begins cheering even louder than before. Bronson grins seeing the reception, and holds up his first EAW award with a big smile on his face while the crowd continues to cheer in his favor.)
Stew-O: Bronson Daniels had a great year. Winning the New Breed Championship surely was only the beginning for him, I can’t wait to see what he’ll do going forward.
Gavin Kirkland: Yeah… It’s a shame Bronson’s reign had to continue as long as it did at Alexis Chambers’ expense… And that he eliminated Andrea Valentine from the Extreme Elimination Chamber.. But I’m sure he’ll do great in the new year. That’s what that award’s all about after all, and just think about who the last person to win it was!
Persephone: The Visual Prophet. You know, the first guy eliminated from his own Extreme Elimination Chamber :mjlol:.
(Bronson takes his trophy and walks away from the podium and over towards the red carpet area. He smiles and poses in front of the cameras as they begin taking photos of him and his Next Up in 2021 Award, and as they do so the show begins to fade from the area.)
(The camera transitions to the ring where both Gina Romano of Showdown and Stephie Love of Dynasty, both wearing Off-Shoulder Christmas dresses complete with a Santa cap. Both are smiling and seem more than ready to get things underway.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is a six man tag team matchup….
Stephie Love: And it’s scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“Uncontainable” by Set It Off comes alive to signal the arrival of Showdown’s GM Ryan Wilson who’s joined for one night by the Extreme Enigma Battle Royal Winner, Maxwell, along with Jon Kelton.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first…REPRESENTING TEAM SHOWDOWN…They weigh in at a combined SIX HUNDRED SIXTY ONE POUNDS…’THE CHOSEN ONE’ JON KELTON….’THE EPITOME OF EXCELLENCE’ and THE 2020 EXTREME ENIGMA BATTLE ROYAL WINNER MAXWELL…and THE GENERAL MANAGER OF SHOWDOWN…RYAN!!!! WILSON!!!!
(The shot shows all three men making their way down the aisle side by side as a cohesive unit.)
Deadprez: GM Ryan Wilson is leading the Showdown charge and already having an ongoing conversation with his teammates, likely making sure they’re all going to be on the same page. Things didn’t go quite as expected for him and Ronan Malosi, known as Chained Fury, at Road To Redemption, but it sure shows a lot of gusto as much as pride to be able to show up just a week later ready to go once more, and this time it’s for Swedish fans we have all the way out here in Stockholm!
Eve: You said it, DP, and not only that, but the Showdown GM comes with reinforcements tonight in the form of Jon Kelton who put in a great showing at Road To Redemption in the Extreme Elimination Chamber match that was for the Answers World Championship, and then the biggest winner of the three. That man, this year’s Extreme Enigma Battle Royal winner, Maxwell. (“P.A.T.” by Denzel Curry begins to blare through the p.a. System as the swedish crowd gets loud.) They should be a handful going against our next tandem that completes this six man tag team match! We have Dynasty’s own Stephie Love to take it away.
(On the stage we see MITSUBACHI, Pure Champion Limmy Monaghan, and former two time Pure Champion Jake Smith all stepping through the curtain, looking especially confident going into this contest.)
Stephie Love: And introducing their opponents…REPRESENTING TEAM DYNASTY…They weigh in at a combined SIX HUNDRED FOURTEEN POUNDS…They are ‘The Artist’ MITSUBACHI…’THE PURE KING’ AND CURRENT REIGNING AND DEFENDING PURE CHAMPION LIMMY MONAGHAN, ‘THE GODSEND’…JAKE!!! SMITH!!!
Stew-O: Well, I’d say we’ve got great representation to put the Showdown side to the test, especially after two of the three won in a big way at Road To Redemption but certainly all three put forth the effort necessary to make the red brand proud. Flannery.
Flannery: Jake Smith took down an esteemed Hall of Famer in Vic Vendetta, Limmy Monaghan became the new Pure Champion by taking down Dray Fontanna who was reigning for months, and then MITSUBACHI who put up the kind of performance in the Dynasty Chamber match that tells you exactly why he’s someone to look out for in 2021. All three of them have bright futures going forward, and we’re about to see why. But wait a minute. The Showdown guys just hopped out of the ring to cut off the path of Dynasty’s youngest and finest core.
Eve: This isn’t something I saw coming for a Christmas special menu. A brawl is already ensuing here and neither side is wasting any time going at it for brand supremacy, and we’ve not even begun the match! Jake Smith of Dynasty is being attacked on the outside by Jon Kelton of Showdown! Kelton just grabbed a handful of hair and smashed the face of Jake into the side gate rail, oh man! MITSUBACHI is going after Maxwell, MITSUBACHI whips Maxwell toward the outside steel steps but Maxwell quickly reverses the momentum and sends MITSUBACHI instead! MITSUBACHI doesn’t falter though, he just scaled the steps! Maxwell is surprised at the agility of the man known as ‘The Artist’! MITSUBACHI LEAPS OFF THE STEPS AND CONNECTS WITH AN ELBOW SMASH TO THE HEAD OF MAXWELL KNOCKING HIM CLEAR OFF HIS FEET! We’ve got the new Pure Champion Limmy Monaghan taking it to our esteemed GM Ryan Wilson! It’s belam already in Stockholm!
Deadprez: I couldn’t have said any better, Eve. After the performance each of these men put on in their respective matches at Road To Redemption you know they want to keep that momentum going coming into this EAW Christmas Special dubbed as the Swedish Saudi Christmas Miracle! Will there be any miracles for one of these sides this time around?
Stew-O: This one already looks like it’s fixing to set the tone for the show we have on tap tonight. Each competitor now breaking off into their respective corners as we look to finally get this six man tag team match underway!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Flannery McCoy: We’re about to find out as it looks like MITSUBACHI will be starting things out for the Dynasty side against Maxwell from the Showdown side, and it’s clear as these two jawed back and forth with each other on the mic this week that there is a certain intensity that both of these competitors intend to bring.
Deadprez: It’s Maxwell that tries to strike MITSUBACHI! MITSUBACHI DUCKS THE ONCOMING BLOW OF MAXWELL AND SENDS A DROPKICK TO HIS BACK WHICH FORCES MAXWELL INTO THE CORNER! MITSUBACHI QUICKLY FOLLOWS UP WITH A CORNER DROPKICK TO THE HEAD OF MAXWELL SNAPPING IT BACK! NOW MITSUBACHI HURRIES TO THE SECOND ROPE AND IS NOW POUNDING AWAY AT THE HEAD OF MAXWELL! THE CROWD BEGINS COUNTING EACH BLOW!
Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE!……TEN!
Eve: Maxwell is stumbling out of the corner, and now MITSUBACHI grabs Maxwell by his hair and brings him over to the Dynasty corner TAG MITSUBACHI tags in the brand new Pure Champion, Limmy Monaghan! Limmy gets a shot in on the vulnerable Maxwell! Now a gutwrench sitout powerbomb by Limmy plants Maxwell into the canvas! Now we have the first cover of this matchup!
Stew-O: Maxwell is able to kick out, showing his resiliency. Maxwell doesn’t take long to turn the tables, however. He just gouged the eyes of MITSUBACHI! What a dirty low down move by Maxwell!
Flannery McCoy: He’s not exactly what we could ever mistake as a saint and he makes no bones about it. Maxwell charges at MITSUBACHI and forces him into Showdown’s corner. Shoulder thrusts to the midsection of MITSUBACHI!! TAG Now a tag by Maxwell to Jon Kelton who throws a hard blow to the midsection of MITSUBACHI, and now boxing punches to the midsection of MITSUBACHI! BUT MITSUBACHI STRIKES BACK WITH A HELLUVA BLOW OF HIS OWN TO THE TEMPLE OF KELTON! Ryan Wilson pulls back on the hair of MITSUBACHI which distracts him and makes him turn his attention toward Ryan, and a MITSUBACHI throws a punch to the noggin of Ryan Wilson and knocking him clean off the apron! But Kelton now turns MITSUBACHI around and…TWIST OF FATE!! KELTON WITH THE TWIST OF FATE! DOWN GOES MITSUBACHI! THE COVER BY JON KELTON!
Deadprez: MITSUBACHI kicks out, and now Kelton grabs up MITSUBACHI into a headlock, dragging him over to his corner where Ryan Wilson is practically demanding to be tagged into this contest.
Ryan Wilson (off mic): Come on, tag me in! Let me have some of that scrub!
Eve: Kelton whips MITSUBACHI into the ropes and catches him with a back elbow coming back! Down goes MITSUBACHI, and that’s followed up by an elbow drop from MISTER Wilson! Now Ryan is pounding away at MITSUBACHI with some extra aggression, perhaps getting him back from earlier when MITSUBACHI knocked him off the apron.
Stew-O: Well, it’s not as though Ryan didn’t have that one coming after interjecting himself and being in the right spot leaving himself unprotected from certain attacks. Nonetheless Ryan Wilson continues to go to work, this time on the arm of MITSUBACHI with a knee drop on the forearm! MITSUBACHI is writhing in pain, yelling out as he reaches an arm out in the direction of his corner.
Ryan Wilson (off mic): Can I hear you scream one more time for me? Mitsubishi is trash, and so are you MITSUBACHI! HA! HA! HA! HA!
Flannery McCoy: Another knee drop on the same forearm MITSUBACHI, and once again Ryan Wilson is taunting the man, obviously admiring his work! Ryan grabs MITSUBACHI up and shoves him to the corner where he begins throwing vicious blows to the already weakened MITSUBACHI! MITSUBACHI crumbles to a knee holding his midsection. Ryan yanks MITSUBACHI back up and whips him to the corner and looks to follow up, but MITSUBACHI MOVES OUT OF THE WAY TO AVOID THE HIGH KNEE! MITSUBACHI INSTINCTIVELY MADE HIS WAY THROUGH ROPES! RYAN TURNS AROUND RIGHT INTO A HIGH KICK FROM MITSUBACHI! RYAN WILSON FALLS INTO THE ROPES AND NOW MITSUBACHI IS BACK IN THE RING! RUNNING SPINNING HEEL KICK TO THE HEAD!
Eve: MITSUBACHI is favoring that forearm, and now a diving crossbody delivered by MITSUBACHI! Now he’s inching towards his corner, finally the opportunity presents itself. He reaches out-
Deadprez: There’s the tag! The brand new Pure Champion, Limmy Monaghan is in and he looks like he’s ready to continue where he left off early on before the bell between these two. Limmy sends Ryan Wilson to the ropes and a running swinging neckbreaker by self proclaimed Pure King. Limmy is keeping the pace up as he hurries and gets Ryan back to his feet and sends him off the ropes again TAG, this time heading off his direct path with a running lariat! But Ryan Wilson was tagged out by his teammate in this contest Maxwell, but Limmy is already up to the second turnbuckle. Limmy leaps off the top but whatever he had in mind it’s sidestepped by Maxwell! Maxwell throws an uppercut at Limmy but now it’s Limmy sidestepping Maxwell’s attack, and SOLE FOOD! THE JAWBREAKER BY LIMMY MONAGHAN CONNECTS! BUT MAXWELL IS STILL ON HIS FEET!
Flannery McCoy: Each man getting their chance to display their one of kind talents here for the folks of Stockholm, and you can just tell by the reaction that they love this treat they’re receiving just before Christmas this year! Just as I say that Jake Smith, who was victorious at Road To Redemption against a Hall Of Famer in Vic Vendetta, is now in this matchup! He’s got a smirking smile on his face as he looks like a giddy kid that’s getting to open his gifts a little early this year, picking up the scraps left by the Pure Champion! Jake pulls Maxwell in, and he puts Maxwell down with the GODSEND! The rolling cutter connects! The cover by Jake!
Stew-O: Maxwell kicks out, but I don’t think anyone’s too surprised by that after the performance he put on himself at Road To Redemption that won him the Extreme Enigma Battle Royal, he’s going to show cleverness combined with instincts. He’s definitely not done yet. Jake picks up Maxwell and whips him to the corner and his spine goes crashing into the turnbuckle hard. Jake steps on in and now sends a hard forearm to the head of Maxwell, but Maxwell strikes back with a kick to the midsection! Uppercut by Jake that snaps the head of Maxwell back! Now a chop to the chest by Jake Smith! Another chop to the chest and Maxwell yells out after that one!
Jake Smith (off mic): Where do you get these pretenders? You won the Extreme Enigma Battle Royal? Against who exactly? You know who I beat? I beat down a Hall Of Famer, which is why I will become one! Someone they remember, unlike you Max! You’re forget-
Eve: I don’t know if I can condone that. Maxwell just spit in the face of Jake Smith, and the smile that Jake was wearing is now gone! Jake throws a wild forearm out of anger at Maxwell but Maxwell avoids the contact! Now it’s Jake that’s caught in the corner, and now repeated knife edge chops by Maxwell to the chest of Jake Smith! He’d heard enough! The Epitome of Excellence now sending repeated shoulder thrusts to the midsection of Jake Smith! Maxwell forces Jake out of the corner right into a short-arm clothesline that takes Jake down to the canvas! Jake tries to recover quickly! Rolling elbow smash by Maxwell is ducked by Jake! Superkick out of nowhere by Jake Smith sends Maxwell falling back into the ropes! Jake has Maxwell up! He’s going for the fisherman driver, but no! Maxwell with a sharp elbow directly to the head of Jake! Jake still hasn’t let go, but Maxwell escapes! He pulls Jake in, and plants him into the canvas with an STO!
Deadprez: This has been an explosive contest so far, and it’s only going to get better from here. We have so many great matchups on this card which includes the return of Eris Lecava, and in the main event Ronan Malosi will be taking on Mr. DEDEDE! Jake Smith is reaching out toward his corner as is Maxwell on the opposite side. Both men are about to make a tag, and there it is!
Stew-O: Both sides with the tag at the same time! Maxwell just tagged in Jon Kelton on the Showdown side and Jake just tagged in Limmy Monaghan! Both Jon and Limmy waste no time as they both strike each other, repeated strikes! A huge forearm by Jon knocks Limmy off stride and now Jon Kelton with the irish whip but Limmy reverses and sends Jon to the ropes instead, ARMOR BREAKER BY LIMMY MONAGHAN!
Flannery: HE MISSES! THE SUPERKICK WAS DUCKED BY KELTON! KELTON SHOOTS OFF THE OTHER SIDE AND HERE COMES LIMMY! OH MAN!! MODIFIED SIDEWALK SLAM BY KELTON! THE COVER BY KELTON!
Deadprez: Limmy Monaghan showing his awareness to shoot his arm up, shoulder off the canvas at the count of two! Jon Kelton is now bringing the new Pure Champion, and self proclaimed Pure King, to the Showdown corner where he begins going to work on Limmy with kicks to the midsection. Headbutt! Oh man, that one sure rocked Limmy. Now Jon makes his way into the area of the opposite corner but not quite within arms reach, surveying the situation to make sure neither MITSUBACHI or Jake Smith interject themselves, and then takes off! CORNER SPEAR BY JON KELTON THAT JUST TOOK THE WIND RIGHT OUT OF LIMMY MONAGHAN!
Eve: Limmy doesn’t know where he is right now after that spear, I’ll tell you that much. Kelton is not done as he sets Limmy up on the top turnbuckle, and now an underhanded throat thrust that nearly knocks Limmy clear off the turnbuckle. Kelton climbs up, and now a belly to belly suplex off the top to Limmy.
Stew-O: Clearly Showdown has the advantage at this point, and now Ryan Wilson has been tagged back into this matchup. Wilson off the ropes just as Limmy was on a knee, and now a running knee by Ryan Wilson to the head of Limmy takes down the Pure Champion.
Ryan Wilson (off mic): Showdown’s better than Dynasty by miles, and this is why people have to wait to see our shows even if they do come later than the others! We be bringing the goods! Those other brands be fielding some straight up scrubs!
Ryan Wilson (off mic): :shaq:
Flannery McCoy: Someone needs to rein this man’s act in right now after such ridiculously shameless flattery! Now Ryan drapes Limmy’s head on the second rope and then runs and sends a sharp knee to the back of Limmy! Now Ryan is choking Limmy on the second rope and taunting him at the same time!
Ryan (off mic): Sweden is MINE LIMMY! THIS IS MY WORLD! I’M JUST LETTING YOU LIVE IN IT FOR A WHILE!
Ref (off mic): …THREE!..FOUR!..FIVE! RYAN THAT’S IT, LET HIM UP!
Deadprez: The GM is certainly not being bashful in the least toward his adversaries for this week, he’s really letting them know how he feels right now. Ryan just took a kick to the midsection that forces him back, Limmy Monaghan is now throwing knife edged chops to the chest of Ryan Wilson! Limmy is back to his feet and Ryan with a wild clothesline that misses everything! Limmy strikes back with a forearm strike to the face, now a head punch to our GM! Ryan Wilson is staggering! RUNNING FOREARM STRIKE SENDS WILSON OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE FLOOR! WHAT’S THIS??!! MAXWELL HAS ENTERED THE RING AND THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO GET HIM OUT! MITSUBACHI IS IN THE RING NOW! THE REFEREE IS WONDERING TOO, AND HE’S TRYING TO GET THEM BOTH OUT! LOOK ON THE OUTSIDE…JAKE SMITH IS SLOWLY-THAT SLIMY LITTLE SNAKE! RYAN HAS NO IDEA!
Stew-O: YOU NEED TO OPEN YOUR EYES, DP! THIS WAS BROUGHT ON MORE BECAUSE MAXWELL DECIDED TO TRY TO INTERJECT HIMSELF IN WHEN HE’S NOT EVEN THE LEGAL MAN! JAKE IS JUST BEING AN OPPORTUNIST, NO HARM IN THAT! ARE YOU REALLY SERIOUS RIGHT NOW??!!
Eve: HEY! LAY OFF DP, STEW! LET US CALL IT HOW WE SEE IT! SHOWDOWN CLEARLY IS TRYING TO WIN THE MATCH! THEY NEED IT MORE!
Flannery McCoy: OH DON’T GIVE ME THAT! DYNASTY NEEDS IT MORE! GET HIM JAKE!
Eve: Don’t you guys think you should be a bit more impartial? Especially since it’s the time of thinking of others? Oh hey! HEY! JAKE SMITH IS STOMPING AWAY AT OUR GM! COME ON REFEREE, DO YOUR JOB! THIS ISN’T RIGHT!
Deadprez: You were saying, Eve. The referee has finally gotten some order back and now slides to the outside and demands Jake Smith get back to his corner, and Jake of course putting his hands up as if he’s innocent. Yeah right! Limmy Monaghan now slides out as well and gathers up Wilson and rolls him back into the ring. Somersault double foot stomp combination right into the midsection of Ryan Wilson, and Ryan really feeling the effects of that blow landed by Monaghan. Limmy grabs a handful of hair and brings Ryan over the Dynasty corner.
Stew-O: Jake Smith has just tagged back into this matchup, and now he’s got quite a bit to say as he badmouths the Showdown GM.
Jake Smith (off mic; slapping Ryan): Sweden is your’s huh, Ryan? Is that right? This is why your career never goes anywhere. You’re always so busy talking about fuck knows what, while no accolades to boast. You got nothing! Sweden is your’s, but it’s smack down in my World! YOU SUCK! THIS WORLD IS MINE! (slaps Ryan again; chuckling)
Flannery McCoy: Now Jake pulls Ryan Wilson in and drops him with the cradle DDT! Ryan could be done for! Jake Smith with the cover!
Deadprez: And Maxwell gets in there to break things up! This brings in MITSUBACHI from the Dynasty corner and he goes right after Maxwell, having suffered earlier with his arm being attacked in the beginning. Now it’s Jon Kelton and Limmy Monaghan going at it, and a fight breaks out again between both sides. Jake Smith gets involved again, Ryan Wilson is still down. Now he’s up! Jake and Limmy are double stomping the hell out of Jon Kelton who can barely defend himself!
Eve: There’s Wilson from behind! CHAOS THEORY! THE JUMPING CUTTER BY WILSON CONNECTS ON JAKE SMITH! MAXWELL WITH THE WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE ON MITSUBACHI! BUT MAXWELL APPEARS TO BE DOWN! HE’S HOLDING HIS HEAD, HE’S ROLLING AWAY FROM THE ACTION TO THE OUTSIDE STILL HOLDING HIS HEAD! BUT IN THE RING LIMMY MONAGHAN WITH THE BLOOD STAINED CROWN ON RYAN WILSON! THE ELEVATED SINGLE UNDERHOOK DDT CONNECTS! THIS ONE COULD BE OVER! LIMMY IS UP! HE TURNS AROUND RIGHT INTO THE FINAL ATONEMENT! THE FUTURE SHOCK DDT! WHAT A SEQUENCE! JON SLIDES OUT TO CHECK ON MAXWELL! THERE ARE BODIES LAID OUT IN THE RING!
Stew-O: SHOWDOWN NO DOUBT HAS THE ADVANTAGE RIGHT NOW AND IT’S CLEAR THAT DYNASTY IS GREAT DANGER OF LOSING THIS MATCHUP! JAKE SMITH IS BARELY MOVING! MITSUBACHI IS BARELY MOVING! LIMMY MONAGHAN IS BARELY MOVING! JON KELTON IS BACK ON THE RING APRON NOW BEGGING FOR THE TAG AND RYAN WILSON GOES FOR THE PIN ON JAKE SMITH THE LEGAL MAN DRAPING ONE ARM OVER HIM, BARELY! THIS COULD BE IT!
Flannery McCoy: SOMEHOW! SOMEWAY! JAKE SMITH SHOOTS A SHOULDER OFF THE CANVAS! IT’S NOT OVER! IT’S NOT OVER! DYNASTY IS STILL ALIVE! RYAN WILSON CAN’T BELIEVE IT BUT CLEARLY HE’S FATIGUED AND HE’S DOING THE SMART THING! HE’S SEEING HIS FRESHER TAG PARTNER IN JON KELTON! RYAN REALLY WANTS THIS WIN ANY WAY HE CAN GET IT! RYAN BEGINS CRAWLING TOWARD JON KELTON! KELTON HAS HIS ARM EXTENDED OUT! BOTH MEN WITHIN INCHES OF MAKING THE TAG! JAKE SMITH IS STILL TRYING TO SHAKE THE COBWEBS! RYAN INCHES JUST BIT CLOSER! HE’S THAT CLOSE HE’S JUST GOTTA REACH A LITTLE FURTHER! HE’S-
Eve: GOT THE TAG! THE CHOSEN ONE IS IN! JAKE SMITH IS STAGGERING ON HIS FEET BUT HERE COMES JON KELTON! KELTON IS LIKE A HOUSE ON FIRE! LIMMY MONAGHAN RUSHES IN RIGHT INTO AN F-5! F-5 BY JON KELTON TO LIMMY MONAGHAN! MONAGHAN BOUNCES BACK TO HIS FEET BUT I DON’T THINK HIS MIND IS EVEN THERE RIGHT NOW AFTER HITTING THE CANVAS WITH SUCH AN IMPACT! HE’S ON SPAGHETTI LEGS AND KELTON DOES THE REST BY CLOTHESLINING HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE! THIS PREVENTS JAKE FROM GETTING THAT MUCH NEEDED TAG OUT TO A TEAMMATE NOW! KELTON THROWS A FEW HUGE FOREARMS TO JAKE AND THEN SENDS HIM TO THE ROPES! CODE OF SILENCE! THE STANDING SPINNING HEEL KICK CONNECTS! ALL JON HAS TO DO IS MAKE THE COVER! HE’S GOING FOR-
Deadprez: WAIT A MINUTE! WHAT THE-ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW??!! WHY?!! WHY??!! MAXWELL JUST PUT HIS OWN TEAMMATE DOWN WITH THE WHEEL OF MISFORTUNE! BUT WHY? WAS THE MAN HURT AT ALL? OR WAS HE LEADING US ON ALL ALONG??!! AND HE’S-OH MY GOD HE DIDN’T JUST DO THAT! MAXWELL JUST DRAGGED THE ARM OF JAKE SMITH OVER THE CHEST OF THE FALLEN JON KELTON! THE REFEREE IS LOOKING ON JUST AS CONFUSED AS WE ARE! THE SWEEDISH CROWD IS GIVING A MIXED REACTION TO ALL THIS! I DON’T EVEN THINK THEY KNOW WHAT TO THINK OF THIS BETRAYAL BY MAXWELL!
Maxwell (off mic): DO YOUR JOB REFEREE! COUNT HIM OUT DAMMIT! COUNT IT! COUNT IT!
Stew-O: IT’S NOT LIKE HE HAS MUCH CHOICE! I HATE TO SEE IT GO LIKE THIS! DYNASTY LOOKS LIKE THEY’RE GOING TO STEAL THIS ONE THANKS TO A SHOWDOWN REPRESENTATIVE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Maxwell (off mic): WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
(“P.A.T.” by Denzel Curry blares to life again. In the ring Maxwell is seen rolling the lifeless body of Jon Kelton away off to the side. We see Maxwell then grabbing up Jake Smith and draping an arm over his shoulder and bringing him to his feet. Jake is exhausted, but he sees Maxwell holding him up and then both men smile as if they’ve been friends forever. Soon the Pure Champion Limmy Monaghan is back to his feet and immediately being welcomed into the arms of both Jake and Maxwell. They’re being given a mixed reaction from the Sweedish crowd, who mostly seem happy to be getting a show from EAW after all this time.)
Stephie Love: Here your winners…MITSUBACHI…THE PURE CHAMPION LIMMY MONAGHAN…JAKE SMITH…TEAM DYNASTY!!!
Flannery McCoy: I’m pretty speechless right now! Clearly some sort of alliance has been formed between Jake Smith, Limmy Monaghan from our side, and Maxwell…from the Showdown side? I can’t make sense of this.
Deadprez: It was a good back and forth matchup between these two sides, lots of action from the beginning, before and after the bell rang to kick these electrifying matchups off! Several times both sides had their chances, but I never saw this coming!
Eve: Nobody did, DP! I’m sick! I’m disgusted at what I’ve seen here! Maxwell just turned on his teammates The GM himself Ryan Wilson and Jon Kelton! This is…it’s shocking, it’s disappointing. Guess we’ll find out eventually later at some point possibly, but right now I hate to see our side go down like that.
(The shot pans back to the ring where MITSUBACHI is barely now getting back to his feet holding his head, but looking on a bit surprised and not quite sure how to react to what he’s seeing. The triad of Jake, Limmy, and Maxwell look on in the direction of MITSUBACHI with collective smiles on their faces, Jake chuckling a bit before they all begin to leave the ring, leaving MITSUBACHI, and Ryan Wilson, who is now finally seeing and understanding what happened. The triad of Jake, Limmy, and Maxwell are shown holding one another’s arms up in a form of unity as the Swedish crowd gives off a mixture of boos and cheers.)
(Shot transitions elsewhere)
(The prerecorded scene from before the show opens to various EAW elitists crowded in a long hall backstage, as they’re all holding gift boxes ready to open their Secret Santa gifts. First, the camera pans to TLA who opened his gift before everyone else and is now drinking a whole bottle of something)
TLA: Ah man, you know this beer is deliciosa. This is why we always go with Corona, really just pumps the positivity out of you. Gracias to the amigo that bought me this you a real one.
(The camera then pans over to Terry Chambers next to TLA opening his gift)
Terry Chambers: Oh, of course.
(Now you would think that he got some sort of burger but no, elitists have evolved past that [hopefully]. Terry is actually quite happy that he also got a bottle of Corona beer.)
Terry Chambers: Was this you?
TLA: It’s Secret Santa man you know we can’t reveal that shit.
Terry Chambers: Sure.
(Terry then starts taking shots of the beer before the camera pans over to Limmy Monaghan opening a very small cylindrical shaped gift)
Limmy Monaghan: Is this supposed to be a Grand Athletes reference?
(Limmy then raises a jelly eye to the camera and throws it in the trash)
Limmy Monaghan: I thought we were past that bullshit.
(The camera then pans over to Xander Payne eating a McDonald’s Cheeseburger)
Xander Payne: MMMMMmmmmhhhh trjhis cheeebsbeurger isdffd hthheeee grfeyatest.
(From Xander Payne we then see Jake Smith opening his gift)
Jake Smith: NOTHING?
(The camera pans down to an empty gift box as Jake Smith gets punched in the face)
Jake Smith: Ow! What the fuck!
Alexis Chambers: Your gift, midget.
Jake Smith: I’ll have you know right now that I’m a 6’0” goddess!
Alexis Chambers: Goddess?
Jake Smith: Uhm, sorry, god.
Alexis Chambers: Whatever:
(Alexis Chambers walks away from Jake as Ronan Malosi comes next to him)
Ronan Malosi: Look man, at least you got something.
Jake Smith: Come again?
Ronan Malosi: I got a whole lot of nothing! Just air! Unbelievable!
Jake Smith: :mjlol:
Ronan Malosi: What are you laughing at you midget?
Jake Smith: I’M NOT A MIDG-
(As Jake keeps screaming at Ronan the camera pans over to Andre Walker opening a stuffed green M&M)
Andre Walker: Oh hell yeah! I can’t wait to discuss flat earth theory with you all Christmas, cutie!!
(The camera then pans over to Lethal Consequences opening his gift which is revealed to be a vinyl of the groundbreaking Collar John)
Lethal Consequences: Best Christmas ever.
(From one World Champ to another, the camera then goes over to SOSA Henderson holding a pistol in his hands)
SOSA Henderson: Bruh I have like 100 of these. Whatever, I’ll just pop someone with this today.
(SOSA Henderson checks out the gun as the camera pans over to Strawberry Steve opening his gift box)
Strawberry Steve: 😎🤏
(Strawberry Steve’s face expression instantly changes as his gift is revealed to be a Banana Milkshake)
Strawberry Steve: 😡🕶️🤏
(The camera pans over to Chris Elite holding a buttplug in his hand looking frustrated)
Chris Elite: How original. Fucking bozos.
(The camera then hovers over to SEBAS holding a sea bass in his hand)
(The camera dashes over to the man next to SEBAS…)
The Woogieman: FINALLY!
The Woogieman: THE WOOG HAS GOT SOME… Pie. God… The Woog loves some pie! Any pie! Apple pie! Steak pie! Cream pie…
(In Woogieman’s hand he’s holding a box. Inside the box, is a pie. A warm, steamy pie.)
The Woogieman: The Woog agrees!
(The camera then pans over to Harlow Reichert, who looks incredibly disappointed.)
Harlow Reichert: When will those restraining order papers arrive? :noah:
(The camera hovers over the box in Harlow’s hands. Inside the box is a strip of paper reading. “Hey Thicc-Low! Merry Christmas! Love from Gavin. xoxo” as it moves on to Harper Lee holding a $100.000 check in one hand and a paper in the other, which has writing on it)
“This is everything out of my paycheck, I’m pretty much dead broke now, so I give you this to share with Sierra… and jump DEDEDE for me. Signed, Ronan”
Harper Lee: :notbad:
(Harper Lee puts the check into her pockets and throws away the piece of paper before walking away. The camera moves on to Serena Bennett who just has blueberries in her hand)
Serena Bennett: Awww, that’s actually cute.
(The camera then hovers over multiple other elitists, such as Myles who holds a parking ticket signed by Officer Landerson, Lucas Johnson who’s been gifted a piece of corn,
and Bronson Daniels holding coal in his hands)
Bronson Daniels: Yo, I didn’t do anything bad this year. I don’t deserve this.
(Bronson Daniels walks out to reveal Mr. DEDEDE holding a book in his hands which is called “Love Their Liquid Swordz”. DEDEDE would read the first few bits of the book and then realize that it’s fan-fiction between him and Impact)
Mr. DEDEDE: Whichever one of y’all did this, I’ll find out, make your life a living hell and then fire you.
Malcolm Jones: Get out of here. :mjlol:
(Malcolm would walk in front of Mr. DEDEDE as the boss looks on confused, as he would open his gift which is a replica of the Unified Tag Team Titles)
Mr. DEDEDE: Well, that’s really the closest you’ll get to those.
Malcolm Jones: That’s closer than you and Karl could get to.
Mr. DEDEDE: Yeah, yeah.
???: So we’re doing Secret Santa???
(Kassidy Heart walks into the shot of DEDEDE and Malcolm with her own gift box, all happy and excited)
Kassidy Heart: Wow, I’m so excited for this! My favorite part of the year.
Mr. DEDEDE: Well, I really hope at least you get a great gift.
(Kassidy Heart opens the box and takes out a mistletoe, her and Ryan look at each other before shrugging and starting to make out in the middle of the room)
Malcolm Jones: This is disgusting, I’m out.
Chris Elite: Yo Ryan take this.
(Chris Elite throws the buttplug to Mr. DEDEDE and then walks out along with Malcolm)
TLA: All the love is in the air! I’ma do this with the poons.
(TLA walks out, joined by Terry Chambers, and then the rest of the elitists in the room, leaving Kassidy and DEDEDE alone in the big hall)
Mr. DEDEDE: Well, I don’t think this is the perfect place to… do “it”.
Kassidy Heart: Oh why not?
Mr. DEDEDE: Well… Look behind you.
Strawberry Steve: 😡🕶️🤏
Kassidy Heart: Little guy why won’t you get out of here, don’t you see we’re busy?
Strawberry Steve: my christian eyes…
(Strawberry Steve passes out as Kassidy and DEDEDE look at him confused)
(The camera then transitions over to Komatsu Ogawa who’s standing with a smile on his face as he shuffles through notes before looking up to the camera as he speaks for the third time this show)
Komatsu Ogawa: And we’re onto our next category! Rookie of The Year! Last year also won by The Visual Prophet who is a former World Champion in his own right after winning such a award, the winner of this has proven to EAW that they’re the best upstart that can be offered in this company. As can be said with plenty of the other awards on this list, it sets you up for success compared to the rest and whoever wins should be ecstatic to continue moving forward in the Land of Elite, either way, I think we know who should win. Let’s see for ourselves!
(It then goes to the highlight reel as per as it shows the nominees along with big wins and major accomplishments that they’ve managed to pull off ever since signing:
(After the reel it goes back to Komatsu Ogawa who’s wiping the sweat off his face with an exasperated face)
Komatsu Ogawa: :whew: Look at that heat, specifically from the last person. Alright… OUR WINNER IS MITSUBACHI-
(Komatsu would say that as he would open the envelope as he completely froze mid sentence. His eyes flickered for a moment before looking at the front and back of the little piece of paper before looking up at the camera)
Komatsu Ogawa: Shit… uh… dammit… your winner of Rookie of The Year… ANDRE WALKER!!!
(‘GATTI’ by JACKBOYS & Pop Smoke would play up as Andre Walker happily struts up to the stage. Wearing a salmon suit over his shoulder he has the New Breed Championship along with some Rey-Ban’s over his face as he looked over at Komatsu, who hesitantly gave him the Rookie of The Year trophy)
Andre Walker: (Off-Mic) :mjlol:
Komatsu Ogawa: SHUT UP! WE KNOW WELL WHO SHOULD’VE WON THAT!
Andre Walker: (Off-Mic) Ye, mwah.
(Andre would push Komatsu aside and take his place on the podium as he would straighten his tie and look around at the cheering crowd as he looks at the New Breed Title to his right, and the Rookie of The Year to his left as ‘GATTI’ would fade out and he began to speak)
Andre Walker: I don’t think there should be any explanation as to why I won this award to begin with, it was pretty self-explanatory if you ask me. I never needed a trophy to prove myself around here because I was always going to do that one step at a time with the New Breed Title, but whew doesn’t it feel good to have one? Ever since I won this title it has given me an opportunity to grant opportunities and give everyone a shot at it to prove that I’m just as good as I say I am, a humbling experience the way I look at it. I mean, I mean no offense to anyone else who was nominated for the award, but I think I was the proper choice looking through.
Who knows, that might just be a partial part of my ego beginning to creep in, but you already know your biggest supporter is yourself. Every so often I take a look back at my career, see how it’s gone so far, always looking to improve myself one step after another. And to think it’s been 9 months ever since I signed pen to paper. I’ve been making those moves! I’ve shown my worth more than once and I think the New Breed Championship is the culmination of all the work I’ve put into this company, but it ain’t the end just yet, not a chance. Because even when I lose this title, and it won’t be for a long time might I add, I’ll move on to bigger and better things, it’s by design at this point holding this title, it’s happened before with prior holders, and it’ll pretty much happen again if I have something to say about it.
But until then, I’ll continue to make my best efforts to become the best New Breed Champion this company has ever seen, one step at a time. This Rookie of The Year award, it’s just the start of it, an upwards climb to the pantheon, a position I truly deserve, and I’m pretty sure you ain’t bout to miss a moment of it.
(‘GATTI’ plays up as Andre raises the Rookie of The Year trophy high in the air as the crowd would cheer in response as he has a smirk on his face as he brings it back down and looks at it glisten before his very eyes looking proud)
Stew-O: What a year for Andre Walker ever since joining EAW. An upwards climb putting on show after show brought him to the New Breed Championship which he has shown he’s done well for himself with.
Gavin Kirkland: Recently defending against a rookie in his own right, Donovan Duke, Andre is just going to continue to get better and better as time progresses and that only means a bigger threat for the people who gun for his title. I hope it’s more women, because I too, am a women’s rights activist.
Persephone: That’s like saying I’m mean.
Stew-O: God help me…
Andre would pat the New Breed Championship on his shoulder still holding the Rookie of The Year trophy as he would turn around and strut off just as he entered with a confident look on his face as he did so, before he disappeared as from there the camera would transition to elsewhere)
(‘Raise Up The Lights’ starts playing as the first competitor, James Ranger is seen on his way to the ring. After a devastating loss at Road To Redemption, he is looking to pick up once again and he is here to do the unpredictable.)
Bella Braxton: This singles match is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, making his way to the ring, from London, England. Weighing in at 243 pounds, he is BLACK MAMBA, JAMES RANGER!
Gavin Kirkland: This matchup is surely an interesting one. It’s an upgrade for this guy for sure.
Stew-O: You and I are thinking about the same thing.
Persephone: What are you guys talking about? What kind of upgrade is this?
Gavin Kirkland: It’s hard to find someone like James Ranger to be interesting, because he’s not.
Stew-O: He is put against a main eventer which really doesn’t make sense.
Persephone: We are going to have Ronan Malosi facing DDD tonight, nothing makes sense.
Gavin Kirkland: I guess this is what they always say: Nothing goes right in Saudi Arabia! This place is known for camels and everything and I love it!
Stew-O: …. We’re in Sweden.
Gavin Kirkland: Oh, damn.
Persephone: I think the Saudi prince would love to talk to you after this show.
Gavin Kirkland: I’m sure he does. I have great plans for people living in his country, especially women.
Stew-O: Looking at how you talk, it makes sense that you thought about women more than anything else. What does that make you?
Gavin Kirkland: It makes me a real man!
Persephone: You guys are NOT focusing on this match at all.
Stew-O: James Ranger better murder a guy to make me give him my attention. He needs to do something that is worth me batting my eye!
Gavin Kirkland: I mean, he did alright at Road To Redemption but sadly, his little journey was stopped so it’s time for him to find more wins to be successful enough.
Persephone: Looking at his opponent, I’m not convinced.
(As ‘Raise Up The Lights’ stopped playing, ’44 Bulldog’ took the spotlight as Gawd Given Greatness, Chris Elite walked to the ring, full of confidence after a great performance shown at Road To Redemption. He is here to beat up James Ranger and humiliate him.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Brooklyn, New York. Weighing in at 210 pounds, he is MONEY MAKIN BHRIS, CHRIS ELITE!!!!!
Stew-O: This man already won the Tag Team Grand Prix and he pinned the former World Heavyweight Champion at Dynasty’s Extreme Elimination Chamber all in the same week.
Persephone: That is why James Ranger winning looked pointless.
Gavin Kirkland: Looking by ratio, this is a 1:10 for Ranger. He doesn’t look convincing enough and maybe he hasn’t recovered from his loss.
Stew-O: However, Chris Elite also failed to capture the main championship in Dynasty.
Gavin Kirkland: Winning the Tag Team Grand Prix was enough.
Persephone: This is not impossible for Ranger, though.
Stew-O: Yeah, let’s cheer him on. He can’t be too depressed just because everyone is convinced that he’s getting his ass kicked! We love positivity in EAW.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: The match is underway and Chris Elite quickly dominates James Ranger in this lockup, he is throwing Black Mamba to the ropes but it looks like Ranger got another plan. He ran to the turnbuckle, jumped out and landed on the steps. Elite ran to his way and Ranger quickly got to the top rope and he quickly went for a Missile Dropkick but he missed his target and Black Mamba fell flat on the ring!
Gavin Kirkland: Chris Elite quickly got him with a wrist lock as he was trying his best to counter, he rolled himself and he escaped from the submission. James Ranger quickly goes with a face lock to Gawd Given Greatness but he is pushed to the ropes, and Chris Elite launches a massive head shot, known as the Pele Kick!
Persephone: James Ranger is sitting on one knee as if he’s proposing and Chris Elite quickly demolishes him with a couple of elbow shots and he is sent with a Snapmare and another headlock from Chris Elite, trying to maintain his control throughout this whole match and James Ranger quickly positioned himself, fast for a Snap Suplex!
Stew-O: He quickly got him up again and Chris Elite was thrown to the ropes, James Ranger with a Lariat ducked, Chris Elite with a handstand bouncing from the ropes but James Ranger caught him before he could start flipping and he got caught into a Sleeper Hold! However, Chris Elite’s force is strong enough and Mamba is pushed to the turnbuckle and landed on his back!
Gavin Kirkland: This feels more like an MMA fight than a normal match in EAW as Chris Elite is high up on his punches against James Ranger. James Ranger is trying his best to fight back and he moves to the ropes, this is a big mistake! Chris Elite with more than 3 punches, striking him down fast, AND AN UPPERCUT FROM DETECTIVE SKABLER!
Persephone: James Ranger is putting his hand on the ropes as he is struggling to get up after that devastating uppercut from Chris Elite, that was Mike Tyson’s styled uppercut and James Ranger is still alive? These people in Showdown are built differently!
Stew-O: Didn’t the wrestlers in Voltage die every week and they still appear on the shows after?
Persephone: They definitely did, some have died more than once.
Gavin Kirkland: Now, James Ranger is showing more of his tough side as he is sitting on one knee while Chris Elite can’t stop kicking him in his stomach! James Ranger had to let go of the hold and he was crawling down and Chris Elite quickly got him thrown to the turnbuckle. Chris Elite quickly attacked him with a Corner Dropkick but Ranger gained his energy back and Bhris was thrown to the outside!
Stew-O: Well, that escalated quickly. James Ranger quickly ran to the ropes and he attempted a Tope Con Hilo and it connects and Chris Elite is down! James Ranger grabbed him by the head, trying to throw him to the corner but instead Elite got him and Ranger was the one going to the steps! He grabbed his midsection and Chris Elite quickly destroyed him with a German Suplex on the floor!
Gavin Kirkland: This is enough damage seen getting through the innocent James Ranger! Chris Elite quickly throws him back into the ring for a cover. Is it enough for him to win?!
Persephone: He got his hand up and he successfully kicked out of the pin. However, a pretty good effort from Chris Elite. Chris Elite quickly looks for a plan that can help him the most, what is the thing that can end Black Mamba? He chose to grab James Ranger and make sure that he’s up again and Ranger aggressively pushed him away!
Stew-O: Chris Elite fell on his back, and he did a Kip Up and he quickly forced a staredown with his opponent. Elite quick with an attempt to throw Ranger to the ropes but Ranger got him done with a headlock. Elite punched his guts and Ranger is seen grabbing it in pain. Chris Elite is setting something up, A SITOUT POWERBOMB WAS DONE!
Gavin Kirkland: However, James Ranger managed to roll out and he laid on the corner. Chris Elite got up and chased after him but Ranger managed to escape and Elite collapsed with the turnbuckle. James Ranger with a Dropkick to his back!
Stew-O: Chris Elite is ready to fall down again, and James Ranger completely destroyed him with a Backstabber! James Ranger looked at the lying Chris Elite and he quickly sits on top of him, a couple of punches is seen sent to the face of Chris Elite and from the looks of it, Ranger is definitely throwing some heavy shots! However, the referee asked for him to back off.
Persephone: In the end, James Ranger let go of Gawd Given Greatness. He quickly taunted the referee. I see someone too confident, I don’t know if this is enough domination shown from him. Someone full of cockiness can be controlled by their own lack of awareness of their opponent’s potential.
Gavin Kirkland: Oh my god, Persephone. That was an amazing monologue!
Persephone: Is it?
Gavin Kirkland: Yeah! Why don’t we have a drink together, you sure could come to my place and maybe we can…. you know, watch some Netflix and maybe even better things after that?
Persephone: I appreciate your effort of trying to heat, but you’re not Rex McAllister.
Stew-O: Listen guys. We are professional wrestling commentators. If you guys waste time to talk about nonsense bullcrap, what are we then?
Gavin Kirkland: I was just trying, man. No need to be that mean to me.
Stew-O: Get better taste on women. Nobody is into someone like Persephone.
Gavin Kirkland: I’ll think of better women then!
Persephone: I hate you guys. So much.
Stew-O: Enough about Persephone being an unlikable woman, let’s continue through the match! James Ranger isn’t stopping his rampage on Detective SKabler as he continues to throw more punches again and the referee put him into the corner. He pushed the referee away and he walked to Chris Elite and CHRIS ELITE GOT HIM WITH A ROLLUP! A ROLLUP MIGHT DO IT!
Gavin Kirkland: That was such a close call from the referee but it looks like James Ranger is still full of his own stamina. He quickly attacked the refreshed Chris Elite with a kick to his head but he managed to duck and Chris Elite rolled to the outside.
Persephone: This is going to be some more chasing action from both men!
Jake Mercer: James Ranger quickly went to the outside, trying to track down his opponent but Chris Elite managed to run faster than ever! This is some Tom & Jerry action that can only happen in a place like EAW.
Persephone: This better not end in a countout.
Gavin Kirkland: Chris Elite quickly jumped over the steps as James Ranger seems to be getting near him and oh, he is-
Persephone: What is he trying to get under his trunks?
Stew-O: That’s a banana…. why would he put it there? Out of all places?
Gavin Kirkland: He threw it down the floor, James Ranger who was charging towards him got his feet on the banana and he fell on his face! The referee didn’t see it so it doesn’t count at all.
Persephone: What a cheap tactic from Chris Elite. He quickly went towards the weakened James Ranger and attacked him with a fast Dropkick and James Ranger flew and he got his back on the steps now! Chris Elite went quick with a headlock and James Ranger punched his guts to escape. However, Chris Elite isn’t waiting no more as he quickly attempted a Bulldog and he d-
Stew-O: CHRIS ELITE SLIPPED ON HIS ATTEMPT AS THE BANANA PEEL COSTED HIM THE MOVE! This is a moment where karma is proven to be right. He attacked James Ranger by using it and now the peel is helping Ranger! As Chris Elite landed on his butt, James Ranger managed to escape from the Bulldog attempt and he’s back into the ring.
Gavin Kirkland: The referee is seen counting and we are assuming that he is on the three count!
Persephone: James Ranger is just sitting comfortably on his place as he is ready for this to be announced as a countout victory to his favor. He is looking at the Swedish crowd and he is posing in front of them! What a move from him, not even something that can give him the advantage but instead distracting him and making him lose focus.
Gavin Kirkland: As he is so much into his posing, Chris Elite attacked from behind with a cheap Dropkick! He quickly gets James Ranger and he is thrown into the corner. Running Uppercut from Elite! Elite with endless chops to Ranger’s chest and Ranger is seen trying to shield his own body from getting annihilated. Chris Elite ended up sending him off with a Monkey Flip! James Ranger landed on his back again and he looks like he is going to get his back broken now!
Stew-O: He is indeed struggling with what he already received from the performance shown by one and only, Chris Elite. Now, Chris Elite seems as fresh as before as he still looked like he just started the match. He quickly ran to kick James Ranger on the back of the head and he quickly took him down with that! James Ranger is down and Chris Elite goes with a jumping knee strike on his head! James Ranger is covering up his face, Chris Elite locks him up in a headlock but he is thrown to the ropes by Ranger! Elite with a Lariat but Ranger ducked and Ranger caught him off guard with an Enzuigiri!
Persephone: Chris Elite falls back and he is seen holding the ropes, James Ranger’s retaliation is here as he quickly delivered some chops before throwing Chris Elite and Chris Elite flew to the top and an European Uppercut was done to Gawd Given Greatness! A quick knee to the face from James Ranger, I’m starting to pick up his vibe.
Gavin Kirkland: I want girls to pick up my vibe! Let’s continue. Now, James Ranger is in total control of his opponent, he went to the top rope, posing on the turnbuckle and there he goes, he is setting up for his finisher early! However, literally this guy’s biggest mistake is taunting, Chris Elite ran fast to him and knocked him out with an Elbow Strike, Chris Elite brought Ranger along with him as they both stood on the ropes, SPANISH FLY FROM CHRIS ELITE!!!!!!
Persephone: That needs to be it. Why wouldn’t it be the end?!
Stew-O: Impressive work from James Ranger still making him immortal against Chris Elite’s moves! Chris Elite quickly thinks of another strategy as he quickly grabs James Ranger’s head and Black Mamba catches him off guard with an Eye Poke! That was low! Chris Elite quickly touched his eyes as the dirty move was done and James Ranger took full advantage and did a DDT and both of them were seen lying in the ring! This is pretty much a good showing for James Ranger.
Gavin Kirkland: This was way better than Road to Redemption. He clearly is learning a lot about his past mistakes and he is on a fast recovery from his failures. However, can I say that the agility of Chris Elite is something that anyone should be intimidated by?
Stew-O: I believe he is living on the spirit of not giving up! Even though that sounded corny for him, it fits him perfectly and that’s why he’s a real survivor. Chris Elite has shown that he won’t just let Ranger win just for the sake of elevating him and instead Elite chose to teach him a lesson! You can say that right now, the way that Chris Elite is showing offense isn’t a way that we could say as supernaturally strong but he has that defense level of a tank.
Persephone: That definitely felt like too much compliments coming from you but I’ll accept the sentence.
Gavin Kirkland: Now, since both of them are pretty much still not exhausted enough to pass out, I believe they have enough energy to continue through this match. As you can see, James Ranger is holding the ropes as he is trying to stand up while the same also goes to Chris Elite! They both got up at the same time, James Ranger quickly tried to attack him fast with a Big Boot but Elite got his leg, Spinning Mule Kick by Black Mamba and Chris Elite is down on one knee!
Stew-O: Black Mamba out of nowhere with a superkick to the back of Elite’s head, he falls hard on himself! James Ranger quickly goes to the turnbuckle, this time, I believe the taunting is worth it for him! He is waiting seconds by seconds and Chris Elite is crawling up, HE RAN TO GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS, FINAL EXECUTION, AXE KICK TO CHRIS ELITE BUT MONEY MAKIN BHRIS CAUGHT HIM AND JAMES RANGER IS THROWN TO THE OUTSIDE WITH A VICIOUS POWERBOMB!
Gavin Kirkland: This seems like a very good opportunity for him to shine through, however Chris Elite caught him in the right time and he failed to showcase his finisher. I guess this is why Chris Elite is considered to be one of the best wrestlers in the industry. There is a reason why he’s a veteran. He knows how to make a plan and how to counterattack and his moves are smoothly done. He worked to the top rope by himself, he wasn’t wasting any time and he landed with that Frog Splash to the lying James Ranger outside perfectly! Gosh, that feels brutal.
Persephone: The fact that it was done in a picture perfect manner shows how Chris Elite is too used to the move, it came to the point where he can hardly botch it!
Stew-O: As he landed perfectly on top of James Ranger, he quickly threw Ranger back into the ring, maybe now ending him? We never know, I guess. He chose to go to the top rope again, this time I wonder what his plans are. He is posing perfectly on the top rope, preparing for his next move which is pretty much another aerial maneuver! 450 Splash, countered by Ranger who moved out of the way! Elite charged to him but Ranger caught him with a knee! This is his signature move, Sunrise Triple, one knee to Elite’s guts, two knees, and the last knee was done and Chris Elite is crawling down there!
Gavin Kirkland: James Ranger isn’t wasting any chances, he quickly gets him up, for a Northern Lights Bomb or as he would like to call it, SUNSET FINISH but Chris Elite managed to counter as he did a DDT on Ranger, cancelling his attempt! Chris Elite now, going on with no time of stopping as he kept spamming elbow strikes on his adversary!
Persephone: He quickly lifts James Ranger up, he is really building up to his signature move now, LAWN DART KNOWN AS THE 44 BULLDOG CONNECTS AS RANGER COLLAPSED WITH THE TURNBUCKLE!!!! He is on the bottom of the corner and Chris Elite saw an opportunity, he finished him off with a HAWK EM! The running double knee must have knocked James Ranger out cold. Chris Elite goes for the pin again, this time hoping that this would be it!
Stew-O: JAMES RANGER KICKING OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! How is this man doing it? I don’t really get this but maybe there is a reason why he managed to be put in the same match with Chris Elite.
Persephone: To be put in a match against a main eventer, you can either be a jobber or someone that EAW wants to see shine even brighter. I don’t know how I see James Ranger right now.
Gavin Kirkland: I’ve commentated for like all of his matches, I don’t know if I’m still enjoying what he brings out but I can say that he’s pretty much alright.
Persephone: Didn’t he lose to a rookie who just debuted?
Gavin Kirkland: He really did but remember, that was when he is preparing himself for Road to Redemption. It’s not like he is just going to lose his pride easily. Even in the losing side of the Interwire Championship match, he managed to show the best version of himself and that was why he was given the shot in the first place.
Stew-O: Now, the most logical thing to do for Chris Elite is obviously pull out a finisher of his or else he would just be wasting time not doing anything at all. It’s a case of two choices that’ll bring out two different results. He goes to the top rope, ready to finally end his opponent right now. Will this be enough for James Ranger to surrender?
Persephone: The Swedish crowd focused more on the action than the fact that they’re not following the rules due to COVID-19!
Gavin Kirkland: Say that again and we’ll lose our Saudi partnership, Persephone.
Stew-O: As Persephone is now on her way to apologize, Chris Elite is so ready on the top rope. He is waving his hands to the lying James Ranger, signalling this as his farewell. Chris Elite is hyping himself up, 630 SENTON BUT JAMES RANGER GOT HIS KNEE UP AND CHRIS ELITE HAD HIS MIDSECTION DAMAGED! JAMES RANGER CRAWLED TO THE TURNBUCKLE AS CHRIS ELITE IS GETTING UP TO HIS FEET!
Gavin Kirkland: HE DIDN’T WAIT ANYMORE, JAMES RANGER WITH THE AXE KICK, FINAL EXECUTION!!!! HOWEVER, CHRIS ELITE MANAGED TO ESCAPE BY HIMSELF AND JAMES RANGER FAILED TO LAND IT! This is very much exciting, James landed on his own feet and he ran to Chris Elite and Chris caught him with a Superkick! He quickly got a hold of his opponent, FACE VALUE BY CHRIS ELITE SENDING JAMES RANGER DOWN!
Persephone: Chris Elite, quickly sending shots to the face of Black Mamba as he is struggling hard and OH, HE MANAGED TO SLIDE DOWN CHRIS ELITE AND HE GOT HIS LEGS, CHRIS ELITE IS PUSHED TO THE FRONT, JAMES RANGER WITH HIS FINISHER, INVERTED FIGURE FOUR ANKLE LOCK! FANGS OF DESTINY TO GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS!
Stew-O: He is having a hard time against James Ranger?! This is some great performance from Black Mamba, people really looked down on him but it looked like he might pull a surprise upset against Chris Elite! Chris Elite is being asked by the referee if he wants to give up but of course, Money Makin Bhris resisted! He is not going to tap out to James Ranger and he has sworn that this won’t be the way he loses!
Gavin Kirkland: WAIT, IS HE GOING TO TAP OUT?!!!!
Persephone: He is trying his best to just survive against James Ranger. And oh! It looks like he is going to finally manage to escape against Black Mamba because he managed to crawl his way to the ropes and James Ranger is pulled more towards him and a rope break was done! That was so close to a victory for James Ranger and he is arguing with the referee right now. He pushed the referee away!
Stew-O: However, the referee also ended up pushing him! This is one of the moments where the referee fights back! James Ranger is locking eyes with the referee.
Gavin Kirkland: Are they going to kiss? Are they going to?!
Persephone: What is up with your mind? I don’t get Gavin Kirkland’s mindset. He is just feeling himself too much!
Stew-O: I don’t get both of you…. What is wrong with the world today?
Gavin Kirkland: Sadly they didn’t do anything and instead, the referee goes to Chris Elite and asks him if he can still go! I feel like that is a stupid thing to do as a referee. He already tried his best for that rope break and you are asking him if he can still compete? Isn’t it obvious enough, ref?!
Stew-O: Chris Elite is holding the ropes near the turnbuckle and the referee is helping him stand up. The referee is assisting him and it looks like Chris Elite might get to finally feel refreshed enough, he got his hand on the ropes and he is standing up but James Ranger managed to attack him as multiple punches were thrown his way! James Ranger can’t stop kicking his foot down as it is definitely going to help him win.
Persephone: The referee asked James Ranger to back off and he nodded. Chris Elite is almost up on his feet again and James Ranger sent him out with a Lariat! James Ranger is building himself up, he is ready and he did that Tope Con Hilo sending Chris Elite to the ground again! James Ranger quickly grabs a hold and Chris Elite is thrown to the steps. He got his legs damaged even worse now!
Stew-O: Chris Elite was sent and he is now sitting down while also grabbing his legs out of pain. James Ranger goes up to the steps…. Oh no, tell me he’s not doing what I think he’s going to do!
Gavin Kirkland: I really hope, NO! NO! NO! SHOOTING STAR DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON CHRIS’S ELITE FOOT! NOT TO HIS CHEST, BUT HIS FEET! THAT IS SOME PAINFUL, PAINFUL ACTION!
Persephone: However, James Ranger might get a hard concussion because he lost balance after he landed and he ended bouncing to the point where he got his head collapsing with the steps. He is seen grabbing his head as he felt dizzy while Chris Elite is definitely trying his best to get up with his damaged legs. James Ranger stood up while also grabbing his head, he throws Chris Elite into the ring as he jumped on the apron. He should go for a pin but instead, he chose to use the ropes for another aerial move.
Stew-O: Little did he know, this might cost him the match. After all, an aerial counter is so possible here. We always need to believe in what James Ranger is capable of because he probably would do something smart to help him control the situation. He is ready for it as he is posing in front of the crowd, he is doing a Senton? Why?! Chris Elite got his knees up and James Ranger is flying to the middle of the ring!
Gavin Kirkland: After all the damage to his back, he tried to do a move centered around his back? Are you sure that you want to root for this guy now? His biggest mistake is that he can’t stop posing in front of the crowd as if he was a model or something!
Persephone: If a woman did that instead, would you hate it?
Gavin Kirkland: Depends on which woman that does that.
Stew-O: Chris Elite is definitely tired so he is going to put an end to all of this! He goes to the lying James Ranger and he is quick with that desperate pin on Black Mamba right now! Is it enough for him?
Stew-O: How did he? This doesn’t make any sense! BUT JAMES RANGER GOT HIS ARM UP AT THE WRONG TIME BECAUSE CHRIS ELITE RUSHED WITH A KOJI CLUTCH!!!! HIS SUBMISSION FINISHER!!!! THIS NEEDS TO BE IT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I think Black Mamba is done now! He can either pass out or tap out! This should be it for him!!!!!
Persephone: I think he’s definitely d-
Stew-O: JAMES RANGER ROLLED AWAY, AND HE STOOD UP WITH CHRIS ELITE HANGING ON ONE HAND, ELITE LET GO OF THE SUBMISSION, BUT HE IS STILL STUCK ON RANGER’S ARM, RANGER GOT HIM WITH THAT ONE HAND POWERBOMB TO THE TURNBUCKLE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: James Ranger with more than a couple of elbow shots, he isn’t stopping with those elbow shots, he isn’t really stopping right now! Blood might comes out of Chris Elite’s nose, James Ranger got him on the right position! He goes to the right side, OH NO!
Stew-O: JUMPING VERTICAL SUPLEX PILEDRIVER FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!!! CHRIS ELITE REALLY LANDED ON HIS HEAD AND JAMES RANGER MIGHT HAVE ACTUALLY MURDERED HIM!!!!! THIS BETTER BE THE END. I SWEAR THIS NEEDS TO!
Gavin Kirkland: Holy cow, man! This is so much coming from Chris Elite. This was the effort we saw in the Extreme Elimination Chamber for the World Heavyweight Championship at Road To Redemption. He is putting his all and this looks like he is going to win no matter what! This is definitely what a Hall Of Famer is capable of showing and this is making James Ranger way too frustrated. He is seen grabbing his head in disbelief as he can’t believe what just happened.
Stew-O: He definitely is going to go on a fight against that referee! James Ranger is told to calm down and he spits at the referee! THE REFEREE WITH A SUDDEN SLAP AND CHRIS ELITE FAST WITH A ROLLUP, OH MY GOD THAT WAS OUT OF NOWHERE!!!!!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THR-
Persephone: He tried to end it with a fast count but James Ranger still got the energy to stop it! James Ranger is up on the corner, furious with the referee but he tried to keep his patience and he waited for Chris Elite to get up, RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE FACE OF GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS! Chris Elite is sitting on one knee, James Ranger with multiple elbows to his face, now blood started to blow out of Elite’s nose and James Ranger quickly throws him to the ropes, Lariat attempt ducked!
Stew-O: Chris Elite quick with a Kip Up, and he goes with a fast Dropkick but he landed flat on himself, James Ranger picked his legs for a Boston Crab but he was pushed to the ropes, Chris Elite with multiple chops to his chest but James Ranger wasn’t fazed at all, Ranger with his own chops and Elite answered it with an elbow strike sending Ranger dizzy to the ropes, Chris Elite is hyping himself up as he ran towards Black Mamba but James Ranger managed to go fast and he attacked Elite with a sudden Hurricanrana of his own and Elite rolled to the corner. James Ranger goes to the other side and charged! Stingers Splash to Money Makin Bhris!
Persephone: Why is he going for the Axe Kick again? It has been unsuccessful everytime he tried to execute it! I don’t think he should do it again.
Stew-O: What are your take on it?
Persephone: It will be a fatal mistake that will cost him everything and this match will end fast if he gets countered again!
Gavin Kirkland: I think that I can agree, this could be a real problem for him if he gets countered with another move from Gawd Given Greatness, Chris Elite.
Stew-O: He is preparing himself again, posing in front of the crowd again as always and I think that he will regret this.
Persephone: I believe that this is his real problem, he can’t stop posing. This is wrestling, not a magazine photoshoot!
Gavin Kirkland: HE IS READY TO DO IT!
Stew-O: Chris Elite is up… AND THERE GOES JAMES RANGER WITH AN AXE KICK!!!!! HOWEVER, CHRIS ELITE MANAGED TO MAKE SURE THAT HE FAILS AGAIN!
Persephone: This man had to get his ass kicked three times just because of the same mistake over and over again. And you asked me why people predicted Chris Elite over him?
Gavin Kirkland: At this point, it’s obvious why he is only supported by the minorities!
Stew-O: Both of you are trying too much to hate on him, he is clearly new to this environment so I believe mistakes are normal. Now, As Chris Elite catches him, Gawd Given Greatness threw him down with a powerbomb on his back and you know how much damage that the back has received! SIT OUT POWERBOMB, CHRIS ELITE ROLLS HIS BODY TO MAKE SURE THAT HIS BACK CAN BE SEEN! CHRIS ELITE GOES TO THE TOP ROPE, HE IS STRUGGLING TO CLIMB UP BECAUSE HIS FEET AREN’T STABLE, BUT HE MANAGED TO PULL IT OFF NICELY…..
Gavin Kirkland: CHRIS ELITE WITH THE 630 SPLASH ON JAMES RANGER’S BACK, AIMIN FOR THE MOON BY CHRIS AND THIS MUST BE THE END OF THIS ENCOUNTER! THE REFEREE IS COUNTING, REMEMBER THAT HIS COUNTS FOR CHRIS ELITE WERE FASTER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: Chris Elite did it!
(’44 Bulldog’ starts playing as Chris Elite just defeated James Ranger, James Ranger quickly rolled out of the ring as he is seen lying on the floor.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS, CHRIS ELITE!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: He did what he promised to do and that is to beat James Ranger but you need to realize that this wasn’t an easy win.
Persephone: If Ranger doesn’t continue with his stupid mistakes, this won’t happen!
Stew-O: In my opinion, Ranger got more chances to win but he chooses to go for another Axe Kick which caused him everything!
Persephone: I mean, at least James Ranger managed to put in some efforts.
Gavin Kirkland: His loss wasn’t something that was worthless but instead it showed him as this tough dude.
Stew-O: He doesn’t need to win to prove that he is a great wrestler, this was enough for him!
Persephone: Imagine if the BVU showed up, though.
Stew-O: Where are them anyways?
Gavin Kirkland: I heard they are enjoying some Arabic food.
Stew-O: All and all, let’s just say congratulations to Chris Elite for his win and also show our appreciation for James Ranger because he did everything that he could.
(As Chris Elite got his hand raised by the referee, he looked at James Ranger who is definitely dead outside of the ring. He climbed to the top rope and gives James Ranger one last glance before getting out of the ring. James Ranger is just lying there, thinking about what he did wrong during the match and how it costed him a win. Chris Elite celebrated and he was the one posing now!)
(A Sweet Swedish-Saudi Christmas Miracle would come back as Komatsu Ogawa would be seen at his podium as per with a smile on his face as he had notes in his hand as he would begin to speak)
Komatsu Ogawa: And we’re back! Our next award presented tonight is for EAW Champion of The Year! On the Voltage side, one of three World Championships here in Elite Answers Wrestling this title has had some remarkable holders in its past. From the current holder SOSA Henderson, to Hall of Famers such as Rex McAllister, Ahren Fournier, Diamond Cage and more! We’re showcasing tonight the Champions that have held this prestigious title in the year 2020, although MITSUBACHI is not on the Voltage brand, that’s fine we’ll get to Dynasty soon, let’s run down the star-studded lineup!
(It then transitions to the highlight reel as it shows the three elitists nominated as it shows clips of them winning the EAW Championship and defending them along with big wins and monumental moments in the process:
(It would then go back to Komatsu, envelope in hand, as he would open it as he continued to look at the camera)
Komatsu Ogawa: And the winner of EAW Champion of The Year… ANDREA VALENTINE!!!
(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX would play up to a mixed reaction as Andrea Valentine would make her way up onto the stage. She has a serious look on her face as she looks out to the sea of people in attendance in the sold-out Friends Arena as she makes her way over to the podium. She stops in front of the stage as Komatsu is seen holding out the EAW Champion of The Year award as she slowly takes it in her hands as ‘Roll With Me’ fades out as she turns around and begins to speak as she holds the trophy in her hands)
Andrea Valentine: Given, Road To Redemption wasn’t the best of nights for me, Harlow Reichert doing what she did to me, even thinking about it in the slightest just aggravates me, that bitch put her hands into my match without any sort of reason, like I did, and cost me the Answers World Championship, I don’t really like the sound of that, but… I hope this award that I’ve won, this little trophy I got, I hope this serves as a reminder. A reminder to show exactly what I’m capable of when I put my best foot forward and put my heart into it.
I hope being in this position shows exactly why those constant setbacks? Are something I know very well, not adamant about, but something that I’ve met in my career already, my journey to the position that I’m in, constantly. But I’ve persevered through it, I kept a smile on my face although it all and look where it got me, tied for longest reigning Specialists Champion, back to back Extreme Elimination Chamber wins, six months as EAW Champion, you get the gist already, I told you the tale. But I hope you realize that this isn’t the end of it all.
I’m tired of waiting in line, I’m tired of being told what to do, for once in my entire career I’m willing to step forward and take a little bit of initiative for myself in the process. Free the shackles that have been holding me back and go out there and do what I do best in my own way, doing whatever I want without a problem in the world. So once again, I hope this award in a way is a reminder in the heads of many, that I’m just getting started. EAW Champion of The Year, not so shabby in my opinion, but I can do more, Hall of Fame career? I’m just about to show you why.
(‘Roll With Me’ would play up as Andrea Valentine would raise the EAW Champion of The Year award in the air as the sour reaction of the crowd would begin to pour in. She would look up at the trophy and for once throughout this whole speech, gives a nod as she continues to hold it in the air)
Stew-O: A definite statement from Andrea as she’s showing exactly why she is who she is around here. She had a great 2020 year and with that award I think she’s getting around to making 2021 her best!
Gavin Kirkland: :whew: :whew: :whew: Did you guys see that fire?! The luscious blonde continues to strike fear into the hearts of many, and love into mine! Oh my god I just can’t wait, given I haven’t watched a single EAW show that I haven’t commentated on but this is one of the first times! I’m ready! My little buddy is ready!
Persephone: HOW THE HELL DID SHE BEAT REX MCALLISTER OF ALL PEOPLE! SEXY REXY IS BETTER THAN ALL OF THE ROSTER AND YOU WANNA SAY THAT THIS BLAND VANILLA BITCH BEAT HIM?! I CAN’T STAND THIS!
(Andrea would leave the stage as from there, the camera would pan out and transition to elsewhere)
(The camera would come back to Komatsu Ogawa standing at his podium with a happy smile on his face as he would have notes in his hand as he would begin to speak)
Komatsu Ogawa: Following off of EAW Champion of The Year we move on to the Showdown brand where we talk about the Answers World Championship. From the first holder in the form of Impact all the way back in 2011 to recent holders such as Theron Nikolas, Mr. DEDEDE, Cameron Ella Ava, and of course the current holder of such a title, Jack Ripley, this title is the symbolism of the history of Elite Answers Wrestling at its finest. We’ve had some excellent holders of this title, not as good as the World Heavyweight Championship though, did you know that MITSUBACHI fought for that title? To be completely honest he probably should’ve won that… but I digress, this isn’t our brand, straight to the nominees!
(It would then go from Komatsu to the nominees for the award as it shows career highlights and specifically their victories to win said title:
-Cameron Ella Ava
(It would then go back to Komatsu as he would take the slip of paper out of the envelope and read it before looking back up at the camera)
Komatsu Ogawa: And your winner of EAW Answers World Champion of the year… JAMIE O’HARA!!!
(The fully packed crowd explodes as ‘Kashmir’ by Led Zeppelin [Paratus] begins to play. However, after a few seconds nobody is seen walking out to the stage. Instead, the huge titantron opens up to Jamie O’Hara inside of his own home with a smile on his face, as he chose to appear via satellite. The crowd continues cheering even louder than before anyway, seeing as Jamie is a fan favorite amongst the EAW fans.)
Jamie O’Hara: (via satellite) All of you saw this coming. I know you did. Making it back to the Answers World Championship, it wasn’t an easy road. Making it back to the top of the mountain was anything but easy, but the greater challenge was what came next. Surpassing my own legacy. Living up to the expectations I placed upon myself. Proving that I am far greater than my past, it wasn’t easy, but I did it. I accomplished everything I set out to this year, from knocking off Mr. DEDEDE to become Answers World Champion to having the title reign I did, and this all comes to the surprise of nobody. Nobody should be surprised at what I’ve done because this is what’s expected of me. Being the greatest Answers World Champion of the year is what I’m supposed to do and here you have it.
Jamie O’Hara: (via satellite) At Road to Redemption, my Championship reign came to an end. After about six months I was finally defeated. I was dethroned by Jack Ripley inside of the Extreme Elimination, and after Road to Redemption I gave myself a choice. I could have pursued Championship gold once again. I could have worked my way back up to a rematch with Jack Ripley and do everything in my power to find myself back on top of the mountain, but that’s not the choice I made. One day I’ll be back, and when that day comes it won’t be long until I find myself right back where I was after Pain for Pride. Until then, I’m going to do what I haven’t had the chance to for over six months. I’m going to be a husband, and now I’m going to finally be a father.
(The crowd begins to cheer, but they begin cheering even louder as Cameron Ella Ava walks into the scene, holding their newborn baby. Both her and Jamie have smiles on their faces as they bring the baby closer towards the camera.)
Jamie O’Hara: (via satellite) The Answers World Champion of the year Award is merely a reminder of where I stand in this industry. Soon enough you’ll all find out whether or not this title reign was my final chapter. One day I’ll be the Champion Jamie O’Hara, Ace of Elite Answers Wrestling once again. Until then I’ll be Jamie O’Hara, Cameron Ella Ava’s husband and the father of Hathaway Avery Ava-O’Hara.
(The crowd continues to cheer, despite this meaning that Jamie will be absent for the foreseeable future. Jamie and Cameron smile at the camera, and eventually the screen shuts off.)
Stew-O: Jamie O’Hara had an incredible Answers World Championship reign which started after he defeated Mr. DEDEDE at Pain for Pride, a match years in the making. It looks like Jamie’s going to be gone for some time now, but surely he’ll be back one day.
Gavin Kirkland: I miss him already. :mjcry:
Persephone: Talk about overrated. Rexy was a way better Champ than him even if he didn’t hold the title as long as he did.
Stew-O: Well since I’m the only impartial one here.. Jamie O’Hara is a one of a kind talent, and I’m sure Gavin isn’t the only one that’s going to miss his presence here. Nonetheless, congratulations to Jamie O’Hara for Answers World Champion of the year!
(Komatsu Ogawa makes his way back to the podium in his dapper suit, as enthusiastic as ever to announce the next award recipient.)
Komatsu Ogawa: It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you the winner of this next award: EAW’s World Heavyweight Champion of the Year. It is with an equal sense of displeasure, however, that our dear MITSUBACHI wasn’t able to become a nominee himself, and I have my own theory on that, you see. Now, normally, I’m not one to cry foul when it comes to racial injustices, but there isn’t a doubt in my mind that for some reason, EAW has been prejudiced against our people, despite myself and MITSUBACHI’s expertise and undeniable talent!
Gavin Kirkland: EAW? Racially prejudice?!?! :skip: What the hell is this chink talking about?!
Komatsu Ogawa: As a matter of fact, this reminds me quite a bit of that classified report written by Japan’s Ministry of Health and Welfare I once had the pleasure of reading! It was within this report that I learned that the Japanese, as a racially superior people, were destined to rule Asia “eternally” as the head of the family of Asian nations, but why haven’t we yet? Well, for starters–
(Komatsu is cut off mid-sentence as the highlight reel begins, celebrating the two nominees for the world Heavyweight Champion of the Year award and their accomplishments throughout 2020.)
– Drake King
– Visual Prophet
(Return to the stage. The drumroll can be heard, and Komatsu, seemingly unaware that the audience didn’t get the pleasure of listening to his analysis, opens up the envelope to read out the name of the winner.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Your winner and the 2020 World Heavyweight Champion of the Year…
THE VIIIISSSSUUUAAAAALLLLL PRRRRRROOOPPPHHHHEEEETTTTT!!!
(At the announcement of the Visual Prophet’s name, “Don Life” by Big Sean begins to play throughout the Friends Arena, the audience in attendance erupting into cheers to welcome their beloved Viz.)
(Several moments pass, and there is still no sign of Viz. Komatsu Ogawa tugs at his collar nervously as he notices his audience begins to grow restless.)
Stew-O: Fashionably late, perhaps?
Persephone: Okay, NOW I’m pissed. The show has gone on long enough already, and Viz decides to hold up MY time now, too? Unreal.
Komatsu Ogawa: ahem LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOUR WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE YEAR: THE VISSSUUUAAAAALLL PRRRROOPPPHHEETTTT!
(“Don Life” continues to play, and there is still no sign of Viz despite Komatsu’s second introduction. He looks around confused for a moment, smiling awkwardly, until an unfamiliar male figure slowly steps out onto the stage.)
(The man approaches Komatsu slowly at the podium. He leans into Komatsu’s ear, whispering something that we cannot hear over Viz’s music as it continues to play throughout the Friends Arena. After a few moments, Komatsu nods his head and backs away from the podium after handing off the trophy; we are able to see the stranger as he mouths “thank you” to Komatsu several times from behind the podium.)
(The man wears a lavish, purple dashiki over khaki dress pants and brown fisherman sandals. Around his neck is a large gold necklace with the African continent covered in diamonds dangling from the chain. He leans into the microphone, impatiently.)
(It takes a few more seconds, but “Don Life” finally stops playing throughout the PA system, cutting Big Sean off just as he reaches the chorus, allowing the stranger to address the EAW audience who are still waiting to see the World Heavyweight Champion of the Year.)
???: Good evening, brothers and sisters. You may refer to me as the Beloved Brother, Dr. Angelo D’angelo.
(Dr. Angelo D’angelo brushes a hand over his mouth and beard as the EAW audience is heard murmuring anxiously. He allows their confusion to subside before continuing.)
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: I represent the Visual Prophet, the recipient of the 2020 World Heavyweight Champion of the Year award here tonight in Stockholm, Sweden. I regret to inform you that you will not be joined by the Visual Prophet this evening–
(The audience in attendance begins to boo at the heartbreaking news.)
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: Yes, I know. ‘Tis truly a shame, but unfortunately, when it came time to renegotiate the Visual Prophet’s EAW contract, Elite Answers Wrestling was not willing to meet the needs and requests of my client, so we had no choice but to take these drastic measures. Because there is no way, not under my watch, that I am going to allow these white devils to take advantage of a man as accomplished as the Visual Prophet.
If you are not an African, I want you to cover your ears right now. This is not meant for you to hear, nor to understand. Right now, I speak directly to my African brothers and sisters in attendance here tonight, as few of you as there are tonight here in Sweden, a country that has handily participated in both white supremacy and neoliberalism throughout history. One of the last countries in Europe to abolish slavery. A country that helped to develop biological racism. A country that has absolutely no love for us, but would welcome us with open arms so long as we are able to continue to make them money and increase their revenue with the help of Black Elitists who serve this company like slaves. Again, I no longer speak to the white people in attendance here tonight. I pray that you’ve all stopped listening by now. I do not wish for my words to be wasted on folks like you.
(An uncomfortable silence sweeps the audience as Dr. Angelo continues.)
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: My fellow Africans. I want you to pay attention. Black men in particular. Black people have more men and women of accomplishment than any other race, and yet, we allow our children to idolize the athletes and entertainers that do nothing for their community and instead, tap dance for your white masters in Elite Answers Wrestling. All these great Black men and women in our history, and yet, the entertainers in this industry continue to give into the desires of the white men in power, willing to wrestle for pennies a match, instead of taking BACK the power that was stolen from them. This is exactly why Viz has decided to do what he needs to do to reclaim that wealth and instead of continuing to work for far less than he is worth. It is a Black man, right now, that has carried this company on his back for six months. SIX MONTHS! And they have the audacity to undermine all that he brings to this company and are refusing to be fair in our negotiations. I will not stand for this kind of treatment. Neither will Viz. It would behoove you to do the same.
Dr. Angelo D’angelo: White people, I now give you permission to tune back in. I don’t have much left to say. I will be accepting this hard earned award on behalf of the Visual Prophet. He sends his thanks. But, as I previously stated, you will NOT be seeing him again until the demands of his contract extension are met in full. And you will see precisely just how much this industry will suffer the longer you insist on robbing this Black man for all that he is worth, so keep playing with me. Thank you and have a blessed evening.
(“Don Life” begins to play once more as Dr. Angelo takes a bow and walks off the stage with Viz’s trophy in his hand, leaving behind a tense and uneasy audience, quite unsure of whether or not it is acceptable for them to applaud.)
Stew-O: A strange turn of events here tonight. I guess that means that Dr. Angelo D’angelo will also be accepting the other three trophies Viz has been awarded here tonight: one for his Match of the Year, one for Tag Team of the Year alongside Drake King, and another for Extreme Moment of the Year after being hung up with meat hooks inside of Glass Wallz!
Gavin Kirkland: Meat hooks might not be the only thing he finds himself hung by after tonight.
Persephone: :krabs: !!!!
(The camera pans to show Bella Braxton in the ring, ready to announce the participants for this upcoming match up.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for…ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Bella Braxton: AND WE WILL BE A CROSSBRAND SINGLES MATCH!
(“Runnin” by 21 Savage & Metro Boomin plays over the speakers and Bronson Daniels makes his way out from the curtain to a loud ovation from the EAW audience in Sweden that continues to rise as Daniels begins making his way towards the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first! Residing in Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 210 pounds…HE IS THE EUPHORIC MACHINE…BRONSON DANIELS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Here comes a man who certainly who’s 2020 certainly got turned around after losing the New Breed Championship. These past few months haven’t been the best for Bronson Daniels, but he can look to score a win over TLA here and end his 2020 with a win.
Stew-O: And while I could say that’d be easier said than done, with the determination Bronson is showing in his face, I could see him using that as fuel to help him defeat someone the caliber of TLA. Bronson is definitely looking to close out 2020 with a strong showing after Road to Redemption didn’t necessarily go his way. He put on a good showing, but he ultimately came up short and his title dreams were dashed away by Jamie O’Hara, the former Answers World Champion.
(Bronson settles in the ring, patiently awaiting his opponent in TLA. He doesn’t have to wait long though for ‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac to blast throughout the Friends Arena as TLA makes his way onto the stage to an ovation the level of Bronson’s. The Sweden fans are ready to blow the roof off the place as TLA begins making his way to the ring with confidence to him.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent! From the Poon Palace in Miami, Florida, weighing in at 210 pounds…HE IS ‘LA PANTERA SEXUAL’…TLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: In a match that had Azrael, SOSA Henderson, Terry Chambers, Ahren Fournier, and Rex McAllistar, TLA managed to come up short much like Bronson did in his chamber as SOSA Henderson managed to retain his title.
Eve: Don’t remind me. :mjcry: Sexy Rexy got robbed dammit!
Gavin Kirkland: No, that was Terry Chambers.
Gavin Kirkland: But I do agree, Rexy sure is sexy….:mjlit:
Eve + Stew-O: :comeagain:
Stew-O: ANYWAYS! TLA looks to do the same thing Bronson is looking to do tonight and that’s close 2020 out with a bang in the form of a victory. We’ll see how this match plays out between these two talented competitors.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: There’s the bell and these two waste no time to jump into a lockup! But it’s a stalemate between these two at first. TLA and Bronson lock up once more and this time Bronson is backed into the corner by TLA and now the referee is looking for a break….which happens as both competitors seem to share some mutual respect for each other in this contest. But TLA and Bronson once again circle each other like sharks before locking up again. But this time Bronson gets the advantage by trapping TLA in a headlock. TLA bounces off the ropes and is able to slip Bronson off who rebounds the rope to meet a DROPKICK FROM TLA!
Gavin Kirkland: That dropkick caught Bronson flush! BUT BRONSON’S PAYBACK IS DENIED AS TLA SCORES WITH A HURRICANRANA THAT SENDS BRONSON REELING IN THE CORNER! TLA follows up on the attack with some stiff knife edge chops to the chest of Bronson Daniels that looks like it’s already taken too many hits in his lifetime. I mean, look at that thing! :damn:
Eve: That’s what happens when you’re not grinding in the gym like Sexy Rexy.
Gavin Kirkland: But TLA looks to whip Bronson into the corner across- BUT BRONSON MANAGES TO COUNTER AND TLA IS SENT INTO THE CORNER INSTEAD! Bronson charges in to land a forearm across the face of TLA! Bronson snapmares TLA down to the mat and delivers a stiff soccer kick to the back! Bronson shoots for a cover!
Stew-O: TLA is instantly able to get the shoulder up! Bronson immediately begins to wear the TLA down with a rear chinlock! Perhaps Bronson is buying himself some time to think of his next move in this matchup as he keeps that arm hooked under the chin of TLA! He may not be able to keep his stronghold forever, however, as TLA is beginning to get to a vertical position. Some strikes delivered to the body of Bronson Daniels by TLA but Bronson answers back with a knee to the sternum as he releases his hold on TLA!
Eve: Aren’t these two like high flyers or something? When are they gonna do some flippy shit?
Gavin Kirkland: Bronson notices opportunity as TLA is on the ropes. BRONSON BUILDS UP SOME MOMENTUM BUT ULTIMATELY COMES TO A SCREECHING HALT AFTER HE GETS DUMPED UP AND OVER BY TLA WHO MANAGED TO CATCH BRONSON WITH A BACK BODY DROP TO THE OUTSIDE! Bronson came down hard and I think you might get what you asked for Eve as TLA BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND SOARS THROUGH THE ROPES WITH A SUICIDE DIVE! TLA ISNT DONE THERE AND CHARGES BACK IN THE RING TO HIT BRONSON WITH ANOTHER SUICIDE DIVE! BUT IT DOESNT END THERE AS TLA SOARS AND CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER SUICIDE DIVE AS THE EAW AUDIENCE ERUPTS!
Stew-O: TLA IS ON A ROLL! But it looks like Bronson is about to be steamrolled as TLA sends him back into the ring before hopping up on the apron! TLA is sizing up Bronson Daniels, AND HE SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES FOR A CROSSBODY AND HE HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR A PIN!
Stew-O: BRONSON MANAGES TO ESCAPE BUT TLA ALMOST HAD HIM! BRONSON JUMPS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AND HE LEAPS IN THE AIR TO DRIVE HIS KNEE INTO THE FACE OF TLA WHO SIDESTEPS IT AND BRONSON GOES KNEE FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! EVER THE OPPORTUNIST, TLA CAPITALIZES WITH A ZIG ZAG!! BRONSON’S HEAD WHIPLASHES OFF THE MAT AND TLA ONCE AGAIN COVERS BRONSON DANIELS!
Gavin Kirkland: BRONSON MANAGES TO KICKOUT ONCE MORE!
Gavin Kirkland: TLA grabs ahold of Bronson and attempts to bring him back to his feet after that kickout. But Bronson pushes TLA away AND CHARGES IN- NO!! TLA SIDESTEPS AND SENDS BRONSON THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPES! Bronson catches himself on the apron before going to the outside, TLA seems to be unaware. He may not wanna turn around, AS BRONSON TAKES FLIGHT WITH A SPRINGBOARD BUT TLA DUCKS UNDER WHATEVER BRONSON WAS LOOKING FOR! BRONSON IS ABLE TO TUCK AND ROLL BUT ALSO ABLE TO AVOID WHATEVER TLA HAD IN STORE TO FOLLOW UP BY SENDING HIM INTO THE MIDDLE ROPE WITH A DROP TOE HOLD!
Stew-O: BRONSON HAS A DEVIOUS LOOK IN HIS EYES AND BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES WITH A- TLA IS ABLE TO RECOVER BEFORE WE COULD FIND OUT AND BRONSON GETS STAGGERED WITH AN ELBOW FROM TLA! BUT TLA CONTINUES TO LAND A FLURRY OF SHOTS USING THE POINT OF HIS ELBOW TO CRACK BRONSON ACROSS THE FACE! Bronson is now brought down to one knee from those elbows and TLA rebounds off the ropes to connect with a basement dropkick!
Gavin Kirkland: Now, TLA is climbing to the top and he has his back facing towards Bronson. This could be a moonsault here! BUT WE ARENT GONNA FIND OUT AS BRONSON SPRINGS BACK UP AND HAMMERS SHOTS TO TLA’S BACK! Bronson now perching on the top rope and he’s gonna bring TLA down with a back Suplex! May be easier said than done, however, TLA is showing some signs of life with punches to the face in hopes of getting Bronson to give up his position on the top. BUT BRONSON ENDURES IT TO BRING TLA CRASHING DOWN WITH A BACK SUPLEX!
Eve: Good, maybe this’ll finally get intriguing.
Stew-O: It is, you’re just mad Rex isn’t here.
Eve: Shut up, bozo! So what if I am…:mjcry:
Stew-O: Bronson has been getting somewhat dominated by the veteran a bit in this matchup and this is just the rally he needs as both men begin getting back to their feet. BRONSON SWINGS THE LEG FOR A ROUNDHOUSE ON TLA WHO DUCKS UNDER! NOW TLA AIMS TO BRING BRONSON DOWN WITH A HURRICANRANA- BUT BRONSON HAS THIS ONE SCOUTED AND MANAGES TO PLANT HIS FEET IN THE GROUND! THE POWER OF BRONSON DANIELS ON FULL DISPLAY AS TLA IS BROUGHT UP AND DOWN FOR A THUNDEROUS POWERBOMB! BRONSON DANIELS DOESNT END THERE AND TLA IS ROLLED TO HIS KNEES TO MEET THE BRUNT OF BRONSON’S KNEE RIGHT TO THE FACE!
Gavin Kirkland: TLA MAY HAVE BEEN KNOCKED SILLY AS BRONSON LOOKS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE BY SCALING UP TO THE TOP ROPE! DIVING ROLLING SENTON CONNECTS ON A DOWNED TLA AND THE MOMENTUM IS OFFICIALLY IN BRONSON’S COURT! TLA is brought to his feet and Bronson hooks both of TLA’S arms- who manages to break out and staggers Daniels with a superkick under the chin! AND TLA RUNS AT BRONSON FOR THE VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT!!!!! IT CONNECTS!!! AND BRONSON DANIELS IS SENT ALL THE WAY DOWN INTO THE CORNER!
Stew-O: Bronson just got his jaw jacked by TLA! But he needs to be on high alert, AS HERE COMES TO TLA! NO!! BRONSON ABLE TO TOSS TLA OVER HIS SHOULDER AND ONTO THE APRON! BRONSON TURNS AROUND AND MEETS A FOREARM STRIKE! We’ve seen him do this earlier but TLA is gonna come down with another springboard it seems, BUT THIS TIME HE GETS CAUGHT WITH GUNSMOKE BEFORE HE COULD SPRING OFF THE ROPES!! AND TLA COMES TUMBLING DOWN IN THE RING FOR THE BRONSON TO GET THE LATERAL PRESS ON A DAZED TLA!!
Gavin Kirkland: ROPE BREAK! TLA uses excellent ring awareness to his advantage to navigate his way out of defeat. TLA may have just prolonged the inevitable though, Bronson is posted in the corner as he unsheathes the elbow pad! TLA is certainly in for a rude awakening at the hands of..BITCH I JUST KNOCKED YOUR HEAD OFF!!!! :damn:
Stew-O: NO! Bronson is unable to hit the move as TLA just collapses before the elbow can connect and Bronson attempts to turn the limp body of TLA over, ONLY TO BE ROLLED UP!!!
Stew-O: KICKOUT!! The Euphoric Machine just came in the clutch with that kickout, and both men pop back up to their feet! TLA CLEARLY JUST SUCKERED BRONSON IN AND HES ABOUT TO DO IT ONCE MORE AND BRONSON RUNS INTO A DROP TOE HOLD AND IS DRAPED OVER THE MIDDLE ROPE AS A RESULT! TLA BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES FOR THE 305!!!!! TIGER FEINT KICK FROM TLA CONNECTS AND BRONSON DANIELS MAY BE DOWN AND OUT! TLA ASCENDS TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND THE CROWD IN ATTENDANCE CAN SENSE THE BEGINNING OF THE END IN THE FORM OF A BURNOUT!!! CORKSCREW 630 SENTON CONNECTS THAT UNDOUBTEDLY TOOK THE WIND OUT OF BRONSON’S SYSTEM AND TLA HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR THE COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac plays over the speakers again and TLA gets his hand raised in the victory by the ref with the audience behind him in victory.)
Eve: Finally. :blessed:
Gavin Kirkland: Another tough loss for Bronson Daniels tonight who put up one hell of a fight to TLA. But in the end, TLA was just the better man on this given night.
Stew-O: Definitely. Bronson certainly has nothing to take away in this defeat, but with the fight he put up against TLA tonight, Bronson continues to show promise in being a star in the making here in EAW. Only time will tell.
(The camera pans to show a disappointed Bronson in the ring as TLA makes his way up the ramp, celebrating his victory tonight as the camera fades to black.)

(The show resumes as Komatsu Ogawa is shown standing at the podium)
Komatsu Ogawa: Welcome back to the 2020 EAW Awards, I’m your Host, Komatsu Ogawa, and we’re just mere moments away from announcing our 2020 EAW Feud of The Year. This year has been captivated by some of the most memorable feuds, matches, and moments I can remember, but only one stood above the rest. Here are your 2020 EAW Feud of The Year Nominees…
( Highlight Reel for Feud of The Year is shown…)
- Drake King versus The Visual Prophet
- Mr.DEDEDE versus Jamie O’Hara
- Raven Roberts versus Minerva
- Ronan Malosi versus Ryan Wilson
- Serena Bennett versus Minerva
- Malcolm Jones versus Charlie Marr
(The video soon fades out and we see Ogawa opening the envelope to reveal the winner as anticipation builds.)
Komatsu Ogawa: And the 2020 feud of the year is…RONAN MALOSI VERSUS RYAN WILSON!!!
(“The Only Thing They Fear is YOU” from Mick Gordon plays over the PA to a chorus of boos as the Chained Fury duo make their way onto the stage with giant smug smiles plastered on their faces at winning this award.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Congratulations, I guess.
(Ronan and Ryan are handed their trophies as Ogawa steps to the side for the two to have their moment as the onpour of hate continues to reign down upon Chained Fury who don’t seem bothered by the fans letting their opinions know about them.)
Ronan Malosi: Ya know, me and Ryan could’ve came out here and act all surprised but…HOT TAKE: our win was set in stone from the very beginning. Especially when our competition for rivalry of the year was so lackluster. I mean, Mr. DEDEDE vs Jamie O’Hara?
Ryan Wilson: Booorrrriiinnngggggg.
Ronan Malosi: Malcolm Jones versus Charlie Marr?
Ryan Wilson: Booorrrrrriiiinnnnggggg!
Ronan Malosi: :mjgrin: You guys get the gist, Ryan Wilson and Ronan Malosi were the best thing going on television for months and we still are, we’re still gonna be the best thing going into 2021. Because Ryan Wilson and Ronan Malosi are bonafied stars who are going to continue to rise in the ranks of EAW. Because if you think that this piece of gold is great, wait til we get our hands on those EAW Tag Titles. Because having that gold in our hands will be even greater especially after Harper Lee and Sierra Bradford got lucky at Road to Redemption and wanna call that little fluke a victory.
Ryan Wilson: You’re right about that one, my friend. But us winning this award doesn’t just prove that Chained Fury = ratings. It proves that Showdown is the “A” show, it’s must-watch. Because our programming is far more superior than Dynasty’s and Voltage’s combined. Don’t believe me? Just go back to Road to Redemption and watch a Showdown star in Maxwell topple over other Dynasty and Voltage stars in order to WIN the Extreme Enigma Battle Royal! :mjgrin:. Just a reminder that the little traitor Maxwell wouldn’t be ANYTHING without me molding him for success on the blue brand, we’ll see how far running alongside Dynasty rejects gets him.
Ronan Malosi: Yeah, bud, it’s safe to say that Ryan Wilson is the greatest thing to happen to Showdown in a long time. And you’re gonna continue to be the greatest thing and as am I as we are the two men who are changing Saturday nights as a whole. And it’s gonna be that way for a long long time because Chained Fury will be on an even bigger rise come 2021. We will accomplish far more than we’ve accomplished in 2020.
Ryan Wilson: So to wrap this all up, we appreciate our awards. And me and Ronan thank…
Ryan + Ronan: ABSOLUTELY NONE OF YOU!
(The two clink awards before heading to the back in high spirits while the crowd continues to hate on them as the camera pans elsewhere.)
(“Extraordinary Girl” by Green Day hits, as the crowd rises up to their feet. Holly Arrow steps out onto the stage and begins to make her way down to the ring.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen.. The following contest is set for..
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Bella Braxton: Introducing first.. From Gold Coast, Australia!! Weighing in at 151lbs.. THE DIAMOND DARLING!!! HOLLY ARROW!!!
Stew-O: Here comes Holly Arrow. Holly was one of the competitors in the Extreme Enigma Battle Royal a few weeks ago. She had a great showing, but unfortunately, she fell a bit short.
Persephone: Sucks for her. Rex would never.
(“Call Me” by Blondie hits, as Eris LeCava steps out onto the stage. The crowd gives her a loud reaction as they are excited to witness this returning Elitist compete. Eris continues down the ramp and towards the ring.)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent.. From Tampa, Florida!! Weighing in at 115lbs!! She is The Anti-Vixen!!! ERIS LECAVA!!!!!!
Stew-O: Here she is! The former Vixens Champion has returned after 4 years away from the ring.
Gavin Kirkland: We all know that Eris wants nothing more than to get herself back into the position to fight for championships and especially Serena Bennett. The two have some pretty bad history after Eris won her Vixens title years ago, and the beef between the two still has yet to be settled.
Stew-O: Now we just have to sit and see if Eris still has the skills that we remember her for. This match right here will show us if that is the case!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: There’s the bell and this one is underway! The former Vixen’s Champion and Holly Arrow tie up in the center of the ring!! Holly quickly breaking her arm free, as she delivers a strong forearm shot to the face of Eris! Another shot by Holly, and that sends Eris staggering back!! Holly now grabs at LeCava’s arm and whips her over to the far ropes! LeCava rebounds off of the ropes and is headed back towards Holly!! ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY HOLLY ARROW!!
Gavin Kirkland: Not quite! Eris ducks underneath the leg as Holly does a complete 360 degree spin!! Holly quickly regains her balance, but just as she turns around, it’s Eris LeCava who shoots in on a double leg takedown and instantly takes Holly down to the mat!! Holly did not see that coming!
Stew-O: Eris LeCava now mounts on top of Holly Arrow and begins throwing rights and lefts down onto the face of Holly Arrow! Holly covers up her face and tries to block these punchese getting thrown at her, but Eris manages to get some of them to go through! Eris gets back up to her feet and stomps down onto the midsection of Holly. The former Vixens Champion now stands up and gets beside Holly Arrow!! STANDING MOONSAULT BY ERIS LeCAVA!! IT CONNECTS!!!
Persephone: Good, now pin her and get this one over with!
Stew-O: I don’t think that’s going to happen quite yet, as Holly Arrow quickly retreats and rolls her way over to the corner right after getting hit by that picture perfect moonsault by Eris LeCava. Holly sits up against the corner turnbuckles, but Eris is right there to deliver a stomp down onto the midsection! Holly reaches up and grabs the ropes above her to assist her up to her feet, but gets hit with another set of right and left handed punches by LeCava!! Eris now grabs Holly by the wrist and whips her across the ring and towards the opposite turnbuckles!! And Holly hits the turnbuckles hard and bounces back towards Eris LeCava!! HEADLOCK TAKEDOWN BY ERIS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: It doesn’t look like the former Vixens Champion has lost a step inside the ring physically. But let’s see what that mouth does.
Persephone: I’ve been waiting for the moment where Rex asks me that same question, because I have a definite answer for him.
Gavin Kirkland: No, not like that! I mean when she speaks on the mic!!
Stew-O: That’s hard to believe when it’s coming from you Gavin, but right now I think the only thing that Eris cares about is taking down Holly Arrow. She squeezes the head of Arrow tightly as she still has a tight grip on that headlock! Eris continues to wrench at the head and neck as Holly Arrow is desperately reaching her arms out and trying to find a way to break free from this hold. Arrow now begins to work her way up as she’s fighting the pain that Eris is delivering!! Holly is up to her knees as Eris continues to try and wrench down on that headlock!! But wait!! Holly Arrow manages to stand all the way up and wraps her arms around the waist of Eris LeCava!! Holly pops her head out of the headlock and.. HOLLY ARROW CONNECTS WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX ONTO ERIS LECAVA AS ERIS SMACKS THE BACK OF HER HEAD AND UPPER BACK AGAINST THE CANVAS OF THE RING!!
Gavin Kirkland: And the momentum from that suplex pops Eris right back up to her feet! SLINGBLADE BY HOLLY ARROW OUT OF NOWHERE!!! Eris uses her veteran ring awareness as she quickly rolls herself off to the side of the ring. LeCava rolls underneath the bottom rope and makes her way onto the ring apron. The former Vixens Champion gets up to her feet on the ring apron as Holly has just gotten up to her own inside the ring. Holly notices Eris and charges in at her.. RUNNING LARIAT BY HOLLY ARROW FROM INSIDE THE RING ONTO ERIS LECAVA ON THE RING APRON!!! NO!! ERIS DROPS DOWN AND PULLS ON THE TOP ROPE AS HOLLY ARROW GOES FLYING OVER!!!
Stew-O: But she doesn’t go to the ringside floor!! Holly managed to get a grip on the top rope just in time as she hangs over the ringside floor!!! Holly quickly gets herself back up onto the ring apron, but is quickly hit by an elbow strike from Eris LeCava!! Holly Arrow responds with a forearm shot to the head of her opponent!! But Eris with an elbow strike again!! And again!! Holly nearly falls off of the ring apron, but she hangs onto those ropes!! Eris with another!! And another!! Each one of these elbow strikes is connecting perfectly!! But wait!! Holly Arrow with a powerful leg kick that forces Eris to bend over.. ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE HEAD BY HOLLY ARROW!!! THAT SHOT DROPS ERIS LECAVA AS THE FORMER VIXENS CHAMPION FALLS DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!! Holly Arrow drops down to one knee while still on the ring apron after that powerful roundhouse kick moments ago. She looks down at Eris who is slowly working her way back up to her feet. Holly manages to stand back up as Eris finally gets to her feet on the outside.. Holly Arrow runs on the apron towards Eris.. RUNNING KNEE STRIKE BY HOLLY ARROW DOWN ONTO ERIS LECAVA ON THE OUTSIDE!! HER KNEE JUST DRILLED THE FORMER VIXENS CHAMPION IN THE FACE RIGHT THERE!!!
Persephone: That’s got to hurt..
Stew-O: Holly Arrow quickly raises her arms up in the air as the fans in this arena begin to cheer loudly for the rookie! Eris slowly works her way up to her feet, but is quickly kicked in the midsection by Holly Arrow!! Holly then pulls Eris in.. AND CONNECTS WITH A SNAP SUPLEX DOWN ONTO THE THINLY PADDED RINGSIDE FLOOR!! Holly quickly gets back up to her feet and grabs Eris LeCava by the head and hair before bringing her up to her feet as well. Back handed chop by Holly Arrow!! Another one!! And that shot sets Eris falling back against the side of the ring!! Holly takes a few steps back, then charges in on Eris LeCava!! RUNNING LARIAT ONTO ERIS LEANED UP AGAINST THE RING!!! NO!! ERIS GETS HER BOOTS UP AS HER FOOT DRIVES RIGHT INTO THE CHEST OF ARROW!!
Referee: One.. Two.. Three.. Four.. Five.. Six.. Seven..
Stew-O: And now Eris with a massive forearm strike onto Holly Arrow! Holly staggers back, but is quickly grabbed by the arm and whipped chest first into the edge of the ring!! Holly leans up against the ring in pain, but Eris quickly grabs Holly by the head and bashes it down onto the ring apron before sliding her opponent back into the ring. Eris quickly slides in as well to beat the 10 count just in time!! These two have been going at each other in this neck and neck battle, but it looks as if Eris clearly has the control right now. She steps over to Holly Arrow and stomps down onto her midsection!! Another stomp by Eris LeCava!! And another!! Eris quickly walks around towards Holly’s head.. LEG DROP BY LECAVA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NOBODY HOME!! HOLLY ARROW ROLLS AWAY AS LECAVA’S BUTT SMACKS AGAINST THE CANVAS!!
Persephone: Speaking off butt smacking. I had a dream one time with Rex where-
Gavin Kirkland: If we aren’t talking about your butt, then I don’t want to know..
Stew-O: Holly Arrow gets back up to her feet as Eris is in a seated position in the center of the ring!! DROPKICK TO THE FACE BY HOLLY ARROW AS ERIS GETS SENT BACK DOWN!! Holly quickly hooks the legs and goes for the pin!!
Stew-O: Kickout by Eris LeCava!! That would have been a huge victory over a former Vixens Champion if Holly Arrow managed to secure the fall, but the match continues!! Holly Arrow gets back up to her feet and looks down at LeCava who hasn’t moved since kicking out moments ago. Holly walks over to a corner and begins to climb her way up to the top turnbuckle!! She raises her arms in the air as this christmas crowd is getting up on their feet for Holly!! She leaps into the air!! THUNDERSTRUCK!!! SWANTON BOMB BY HOLLY ARROW!! NO!!! ERIS LECAVA GOT HER KNEES UP AS HOLLY’S BACK SNAPS RIGHT DOWN ONTO THEM!!
Gavin Kirkland: Holly Arrow rolls off to the side and clutches at her back in tremendous pain as she kicks her legs up and down as well. That failed Swanton Bomb took a lot out of her. A swanton in general is a very fatiguing move on it’s own, but to land directly onto the knees of your opponent like that is extremely painful. Holly Arrow slowly working her way up to her hands and knees. She’s clutching at her lowerback, but Arrow manages to fight through the pain and gets up to her feet-
Stew-O: BUT ERIS SENDS HOLLY RIGHT BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A HAIR PULL MAT SLAM!!! THAT MOVE BASHED THE BACK OF HOLLY’S HEAD UP AGAINST THE CANVAS OF THE RING!!
Gavin Kirkland: Holly is clutching at the back of her head in pain, but all that does is give Eris and opening as LeCava connects with a strong stomp down onto the stomach of Arrow!! Eris walks around the body of Holly Arrow for a moment as she begins to examine her opponent. Holly is clutching at her body in pain, but Eris doesn’t care as she lifts Holly up to her feet!! Eris then picks Holly up.. AND CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING BACKBREAKER!!! SHE JUST DROPPED HOLLY ARROW BACK FIRST ONTO HER KNEE!! Holly rolls off of Eris’ leg, and drops down to the mat!! Eris then hooks the legs and goes for the pin!!!
Stew-O: And there’s the kickout by Holly Arrow!! Both of these women have tried to pin the other one down so far in this match, but have been unsuccessful. Eris LeCava knows what she needs to do as she is already setting up her next move. Eris turns Arrow’s body onto its side as she begins drilling her with knee shots that land directly into the rookie’s spine!! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN KNEE SHOTS TO THE SPINE OF HOLLY ARROW!! Eris looks as if she wants to continue breaking down the body and midsection of her opponent!!
Persephone: I wish Rex would break my back.
Gavin Kirkland: Who needs Rex when I’m right here :mjgrin:
Persephone: I wish Rex would break my back.
Gavin Kirkland: :mjcry:
Stew-O: Eris LeCava now stands up in the center of the ring as Holly Arrow is broken down and in so much pain. LeCava reaches down and grabs Arrow by the head and hair. She brings her opponent up to her feet, then wraps her arms around her!! BEAR HUG!! THE BEAR HUG IS LOCKED IN BY ERIS LECAVA!! Holly is screaming in pain since this move is applying so much pressure onto her already weakened spine and torso. Holly is trying to break herself free, but LeCava isn’t allowing it! And wait a second.. What’s this!?!? LeCava is now pressing her forehead into the chest of Holly while also pulling in on her lower back!! She’s applying even more pressure this way!! Holly is screaming!! She’s trying to get out of this position!! She may need to tap out!! Holly has both of her hands extended off to the side and she-
Gavin Kirkland: SHE DOES A HARD CLAP AS HER HANDS SMACK BOTH SIDES OF ERIS’ HEAD!! That shot has to be ringing through the ears of Eris and may have even burst an eardrum!! Eris quickly releases her hold on Holly Arrow as she drops down to one knee and clutches at her ears in pain! Holly quickly steps up and hooks her arms in with Eris’. Eris is trying to keep a strong stance to prevent herself from getting taken down by Holly, but Holly Arrow with a massive stomp down onto the foot of Eris LeCava!! Eris loses her footing on that foot and is instantly taken down by a dragon screw takedown!!
Stew-O: Holly stills has that arm trapped and locked in as she begins to deliver elbow shots down onto the side of Eris’ head!! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE SHOTS BY HOLLY ARROW!! Holly is holding Eris down, but Eris still has some fight left in her as she begins to work her way up to her- WAIT A SECOND!! JUST AS ERIS WAS ABOUT TO STAND UP, HOLLY ADJUSTED HERSELF AND SWITCHED INTO A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX THAT TAKES THE FORMER VIXENS CHAMPION DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!! Eris is down and using the side ropes to assist herself up to her feet.. However, it’s Holly Arrow who charges in and connects with a powerful knee strike to the midsection of her opponent!! Eris drops back down to one knee, as Holly arrow grabs a hold of her wrist. Holly pulls Eris up to her feet and walks her towards the center of the ring with her wrist still in her possession… SWEET 16!! RIPCORD SPINNING BACK ELBOW BY HOLLY ARROW!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!! ERIS LECAVA DUCKS UNDERNEATH THE ARM!! Holly still has a hold of Eris’ wrist, but Eris uses it to spin Holly and kick her in the midsection!! Holly releases the wrist of Eris, but Eris quickly locks in her own grip.. It’s a pumphandle!! She lifts Holly into the air.. ANTIPSYCHOTIC!!! THE PUMPHANDLE INTO THE SAMOAN DROP BY ERIS LECAVA!!! IT CONNECTS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!!! Eris hooks the legs!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Call Me” by Blondie hits, as Eris LeCava rises up to her feet and gets her hand raised by the referee. The crowd gives a mixed reaction of boos and cheers, but we can definitely hear more cheers for the returning Elitist than boos.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner.. THE ANTI VIXEN!!!! ERIS LECAVA!!!!!!!
Stew-O: What an impressive victory by the former Vixens Champion. Performances like the one we just witnessed have me feeling like it won’t take long until Eris is back in the title hunt.
Gavin Kirkland: Well we all know she isn’t the biggest fan of the reigning Universal Women’s Champion, and that Serena Bennett is her biggest motivation right now after everything they went through in the past, so who knows. I wouldn’t mind a little more girl on girl action.
Persephone: All I know is that Rex isn’t even on the card tonight and I have no reason to be here honestly..
Stew-O: I can see why they wanted me to be out here commentating with you both.. Gotta have balance.. But you horn dogs are becoming quite a bit for me to handle. Makes me wish I had Jake Mercer out here giving his wrestling input.. But anyways, this was a great victory for Eris, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing plenty of her in the near future!!
(Eris LeCava is seen celebrating in the center of the ring before the screen fades to black)
(A commercial airs featuring Ronan Malosi turning birds into chicken by cooking them like a mad scientist)
(Komatsu Ogawa appears on stage in front of the podium, holding onto the envelope and the trophy for the next award recipient.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Ah…women’s wrestling.
Gavin Kirkland: :mjlit:
Komatsu Ogawa: Speaking of which! I can’t wait to meet all the new FEMALE JAPANESE WRESTLERS that have recently signed EAW contracts with us! :blessed:
Gavin Kirkland: :scusthov:
Komatsu Ogawa: But let me not get too far ahead of myself. Now, none of you need me to tell you the prestige that follows this award. None of these women hardly need an introduction. It has been quite an incredible year for women’s wrestling, and each of these amazing women have had an opportunity to contribute to that in some way. :wow: お大事に!
(Komatsu gestures towards the titantron, directing his audience towards the titantron as the highlight reels for the nominees commence.)
– Andrea Valentine
– Cameron Ella Ava
– Kassidy Heart
– Serena Bennett
– Raven Roberts
(The broadcast cuts back to the stage as the drumroll begins. Komatsu excitedly tears open the envelope to read the name of the winner.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Your winner and the 2020 Female Elitist of the Year…
(“Surfin’ [ft. Pharrel Williams]” by Kid Cudi begins to play throughout the PA system of the Friends Arena, the crowd in attendance cheering as Serena Bennett steps out onto the decorated stage to greet Komatsu. She’s dressed in an off-white, long sleeve, turtleneck, form-fitting sweater dress that stops at the top of her thigh, and a pair of black suede, thigh-high Christian Louboutin boots worn on her feet.)
(Over her shoulder rests her glistening Universal Women’s Championship, an accessory that is only out-shined by the bright smile worn on her face as she approaches Komatsu. He hands Serena her trophy before dismissing himself and allowing her the podium. After placing her Universal Women’s Title in a safe spot in front of her, she rests both her elbows on the podium, leaning forward as she smiles out into the crowd, tightly gripping the trophy that sits in her hands. She bites down on her bottom lip, failing to subdue her smile, as “Surfin’” fades out and the audience awaits her remarks.)
Serena Bennett: So, look, check this: Tuesday night. I’m chillin’ at home, minding my business, doing hot girl shit, you know, the usual. We preppin’ for the holidays, last minute gift wrapping, hot chocolate with the itty bitty marshmallows, the Grinch is on, I’m vibing.
Told myself I was gon’ make sure to buy every last man that was gifted enough to give me an orgasm this year a PS5, and I’m a woman of my word, so…I bought one (1) PS5. :mjgrin: And just as I had started wrapping the one PS5 in some pretty sparkly blue paper, was gon’ tie it up all nice with some silver and gold ribbon and shit–my phone rings.
(She carefully stands the trophy up on the podium beside her UWC belt, then leans up straight to stare out into the audience.)
Serena Bennett: Unsaved number, but I already know it’s one of them EAW suits, ‘cause ain’t nobody else with no damn Jersey area code is gon’ call me, so I answer. I’m like, the fuck they want from me now, damn, they don’t see I’m on vacation? This bozo goes right on ahead and tells me “your flight to Stockholm is at 12 PM EST tomorrow, Serena” and I’m like :skip: !!! Stockholm?! Flight?! In the middle of a PANDEMIC?! Homie out his mind, must’ve called the wrong number, I ain’t volunteer to wrestle this week, ‘cause like I said, I’m on vacation, there’s too much coronavirus out there, I got other shit to do, like, c’mon.
But he tells me they already filed the paperwork for my emergency travel visa–amazing what blood money can get you on such short notice amidst all these travel restrictions–yada yada yada. I tell this man he’s batshit crazy if he think I’m spending Christmas anywhere but California. Then he says, “well, if you won’t come, I guess we won’t be able to get your Female Elitist of the Year award to you until after the holidays.”
So, I shut my lil’ ass up, told him to forward me my itinerary, and hung up so I could go pack my bags right quick. This motherfucker and his PS5 gon’ have to wait ‘til I get back home.
(She pauses to laugh at herself, allowing for the details of her story to settle with the audience. Her playful demeanor then shifts as she takes on a more serious tone, gripping either side of the podium.)
Serena Bennett: To say I was “surprised” to find out I won Female Elitist of the Year, nah, that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the level of emotion I was overcome with when that bozo spoiled my whole damn surprise. I was numb. Shocked. Stunned. Absolutely amazed. Convinced myself in mid-air that there ain’t no goddamn way EAW meant to have me on this plane to Sweden right now and some idiot made a huge mistake when he was counting up results. I never expected to win, not for a moment. The idea never crossed my goddamn mind. I have long since accepted that no matter how badly I might want the industry-wide recognition for my talent, I wasn’t ever going to get it. Not on a level as prestigious as this.
I know, I know, I know. Very rarely am I ever humbled by anything, just ask anyone, they’ll tell you exactly how sure of myself I am. Exactly how highly I think of myself and my ability. Exactly how certain I am that I’m the greatest female Elitist this company has ever seen. But it’s one thing for me to feel it, to see it, to believe it, and another to have this pro wrasslin’ world finally feel, see, and believe it, too.
(She flashes a smile into the audience as they applaud quickly.)
Serena Bennett: Now. As fan-fuckin’-tastic as it feels to have EARNED this honor, and as impatient as I am to rub it in the face of every last motherfucker in that locker room that dared to say Serena Bennett had no chance of ever making an impact on this industry since her departure a year ago–I am refusing to let this award allow me to fall into a sense of complacency, ‘cause that is far too easy to do. This award stands for everything I failed to accomplish last year that I have since redeemed myself for: a Universal Women’s Title reign. A War Games victory. A Grand Prix semifinalist. A first-ever for women’s wrestling as a competitor in Red Wallz. A chance to re-establish myself as the face of EAW’s Women’s Division–I could go on. Took me longer than originally anticipated, but I finally left my mark, took my place in recorded history, and I could very well leave it at that and fuck off into obscurity after achieving all I set out to do.
But fuck allat. There is much, much more to come, ain’t no stopping the momentum I’ve built thus far. I still got shit to do, ain’t shit sweet, I told y’all what it was a long time ago.
You don’t need me to tell y’all 2020’s been a shitshow, in more ways than I can even count. To think I managed to pull this off in a year like this one, whew. Wait ‘til you see what 2021 has in store for ya girl. Promise you ain’t see nothin’ like it yet. Better hold onto sumn, we in for a hell of a ride.
(Serena, smiling widely once more, backs away from the podium after grabbing both her UWC belt and FEOTY trophy and holding them in the air. “Surfin’” begins to play once again just as the audience bursts into cheers.)
Gavin Kirkland: Congratulations to Serena! Granted, I still wish the bitch would have dropped dead by now, but it is what it is. She’s made it considerably far since our days working together!
Persephone: Oh, is she done now?
Stew-O: Along with this award, Serena is also the recipient of four other awards! She is 2020’s Female Promoer of the Year, Universal Women’s Champion of the Year, Comeback of the Year, and participated in the Women’s Match of the Year against Minerva at Bloodsport! :wow:
(The audience in attendance stand for an ovation as Serena is celebrated as the Elitist of The Year. The cameras transition backstage and focus on Eris LeCava, who is watching Serena on a monitor as she celebrates her historic monumental win. Eris’ eyes are seemingly bulging out of her sockets as she smiles hysterically. Eris has her hands in a praying pose and repeatedly mutters under her breath “thank you, God. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” Kathy Kush emerges from the side.)
Kathy Kush: Eris… Can I ask you a few questions?
(Eris ignores Kathy as her eyes are glued to the screen.)
Kathy Kush: Um… Excuse me? Eris? Eris–
(Kathy taps Eris on the shoulder as she gets startled and falls to the floor.)
Eris: NO YOU CAN’T TOUCH ME! THOSE ARE MY NO-NO PRIVATE PRINCESS PARTS!!
Kathy Kush: I’m so sorry! It – I was just trying to get your attention!
(Eris takes a glance at the non-threatening interviewer and sighs in relief. Eris’ body posture changes from cowering in fear to throwing her head back and laughing.)
Eris: Oh – You silly nilly! You had me startled! (Eris stands.) What’s up?? 😛
Kathy Kush: I… I wanted to ask you a couple of questions in regards to Serena’s win?
Eris: Oh gosh, any time my baby is the topic of discussion I’m always game. What do you want to know? Do you want to know what type of underwear she has under that killer ensemble? What about what she had for breakfast this morning? How about her social media logins? Her allergies? What she looked like before lip fillers? Or do you want to know the last time she has showered? Spoiler alert: About 3 hours ago. It was right after we uh… Had a pre-celebration ceremony in my bedroom. 😉
Kathy Kush: I’m sorry. I’m so confused. At Road to Redemption, Serena basically said that she had NO relationship with you and didn’t even know you?
Eris: Oh, my baby! She always wants to play hard to get! She acts as if she doesn’t know me because she just doesn’t want my legendary status to influence her career. She wants to earn everything on her own and doesn’t want to get awesome awards because of who’s poonani she’s eating at the end of the night. Such a humble young doll. :drooling_face: That’s just reason #453653 as to why I love her.
Kathy Kush: I’m so sorry, Eris, but I have no idea where you’re getting any of this from? Serena Bennett has not even publicly acknowledged you since Road to Redemption and –
(Eris loses her cool and begins shouting.)
Eris: AND? AND? AND WHAT KATHY MARIJUANA? YOU THINK MARIJUANA IS EFFING COOL, HUH? SO COOL THAT YOU HAD TO GET IT AS A LAST NAME? STOP BEING SO BASIC AND STOP CRITICIZING MY RELATIONSHIP. YOU SOUND LIKE MY EFFING MOTHER! AND ACCORDING TO DR. LINDA, MY MOTHER IS A HUGE TRIGGER AND I SUGGEST THAT IF YOU DON’T WANT ME TO GO BEZERK THEN YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR EFFING ATTITUDE!
Kathy Kush: I was just trying to get some clarification – I didn’t mean to get you riled up–
(Eris seemingly goes from 100 to 0.)
Eris: Oh it’s kewl! :3 No worries. What were we talking about again??
Kathy Kush: Um… What do you think this award means to Serena?
Eris: I’m sure it means a lot but by now are you even surprised that Serena was the cream of the crop? There’s NO ONE in EAW that matches her style, creativity, and overall raw athleticism and talent. My baby has been the Specialist Champion, the Inaugural Universal Women’s World Champion, actually – TWO TIME Universal Women’s World Champion – First she beat some mean lady with a billboard-size forehead and then beat some scary lady who looks like she hasn’t brushed her teeth in decades, ANNNND she’s the Women’s Grand Rampage Winner of 2019. At this point, no one should react in shock that Serena is at the top of her game and beating all of these nerds in this division. Serena Bennett is the past, present, AND future! She’s a legend in the making!!! KATHY, you should be HONORED that you get to witness this moment in person – LIVE. Kathy, you should feel SO grateful that you’re even in the same building as my baby Serena! Serena and I have been intimate passionate lovers since 2019 and there are times where I still feel like a star-struck fan meeting their idol for the first time. Gosh, I’m so lucky and in love! I need to go find my baby to give her a celebratory smooch! Gotta jet!
(Eris sprints around the corner as Kathy is left dumbfounded by what she has just heard.)
(The camera would fade in to Bella Braxton standing in the middle of the ring)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen the following is a SINGLES MATCH! And it is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(‘Daigyakuten’ by Yuki Hayashi would play up to loud cheers from the crowd as Harper Lee would make her way out to the stage. Spreading her arms out with her half of the Unified Tag Team Championship around her waist she would look towards the ring before making her way down the ramp energetically)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… residing in San Francisco, California… weighing in at 118 pounds… she is one-half of the UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!! THE INVINCIBLE… HARPER LEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Harper is coming off of a dominant defence against the team of Ryan Wilson and Ronan Malosi, collectively known as Chained Fury, along with her partner Sierra Bradford at Road To Redemption and it’s especially keen to see that she’s confident off of that defense.
Gavin Kirkland: And she’s only going to keep going! I love blondes, did I ever tell you that? And look how strong she is??? Connecting the pieces together, we stan a strong confident blonde woman!
Persephone: Blondies are dumb, just like you. Bland, vanilla, they all look the same, how bland can your taste in women get? Brown hair is the best anyways…
(Harper would circle around the ring after passing the bottom ramp before sliding into the ring as she would make her way over to the ropes and climb up them as she would raise the Unified Tag Team Championship up in the air as she looked towards it before jumping off and making her way over to her corner and readying herself as ‘Daigyakuten’ would fade out. It wouldn’t be long before ‘All It Takes For Your Dreams to Come True’ by A Skylit Drive would play up to a surprising amount of cheers as Amber Keys would energetically make her way out to the stage. As hyped as ever she would throw a arm in the air as she looked around at the crowd as she sarcastically put a hand on her heart as she would focus on the ring as she made her way towards it from there)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent… from The Bronx, New York… weighing in at 135 pounds… DIRTI DIVA… AMBER KEYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: Wow, let’s talk about Amber Keys’ and her association with Elite Answers Wrestling in recent memory, let’s just say it’s been unexpected for sure. She ended the year off in 2019 by attacking Mr. DEDEDE in Egypt and cancelling EAW’s three event deal with Egypt along with forfeiting $300 million, it’s safe to say Amber did a lot in such a short time then. After losing to DEDEDE a few months later she would be inducted into the EAW Hall of Fame, an incredible achievement only deserving of the best like her, now making her in-ring return tonight!
Gavin Kirkland: After what happened at Pain For Pride XII which I shall not mention I am bitter. I am not the happiest to see her tonight but I am willing to push that away because damn she aged like fine wine what the hell. :whew: Go off girl.
Persephone: You’re such a pedophile wtf. She ain’t even that good what are you on about? Whatever, she can do whatever she wants as long as she doesn’t disrupt me or I’ll send her ass back to the retirement home where she belongs.
(Amber would slide into the ring as she would slide up to a knee. She would look at her opponent before raising a arm in the air once more as she got back up to her feet, turning around as she climbed up to the top rope and threw her hands in the air as the positive reaction continued for the EAW Hall of Famer before she jumped off and made her way over to the corner across from her opponent as she would get ready herself as ‘All It Takes For Your Dreams to Come True’ would fade out and the Ref would signal for the bell.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew-O: Here we go as this highly anticipated match is underway! Amber is making her way out of the corner as Harper isn’t hesitating to follow as both of them are beginning to circle around slowly. But it’s Amber that comes in and takes a step forward as she sends a knife edged chop to the chest of Harper! Harper seems to be taken aback by it as she grabs her chest and moves backwards, but Amber isn’t letting her rest as she runs forward! CLOTHESLINE OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Gavin Kirkland: Harper managing to barely grab onto the top rope though as she finds herself situated on the apron! Amber turns around as she runs to the opposite side of the ring and rebounds off the ropes and back, AS SHE LOOKS TO THRUST HER SHOULDER INTO HER GUT AND SEND HER FLYING DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE AREA! I know there’s something I want to thrust and it’s definitely not my shoulder. :mjlit: But it’s Harper that moves out of the way and leaves Amber draped over the ropes as she takes a step back, BICYCLE KNEE TO THE SIDE OF AMBER’S FACE SENDING HER COLLAPSING BACK DOWN TO THE INSIDE OF THE RING!
Persephone: Whoreper rolling her ass back into the ring as she’s making her way over and grabbing the hair of Amber as she’s bringing her back up to her feet as she does so. As she’s grabbing Amber and sending her into an Irish whip, but she plants her feet to the ground to keep herself stationary! Goddamn is she that weak?! But it’s Amber that pulls her in and takes a shot at the bridge of Harper’s nose with a forearm!
Stew-O: Harper falling down to a knee as Amber grabs her by her hair in retaliation, AS SHE GOES FOR A MAT SLAM! But it’s Harper that fights back with sharp elbows towards her gut forcing her to separate away as both of them are back up to their feet, but as Amber runs over Harper takes her down with a drop toe hold! Harper attempts to wrap her legs around Amber’s singular and lock in a Heel Hook! But it’s Amber that turns around and kicks Harper dead in her face with her other foot breaking up her grip!
Gavin Kirkland: Amber is up as Harper follows grabbing her face, but there’s somewhere else I’m looking other than that and damnnnn!!! BUT OUT OF NOWHERE AMBER LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND TAKES HARPER DOWN WITH A FLYING HEEL KICK TOWARDS HER FACE! Amber rolling to the ropes as she uses it to carry the weight of herself and her breast and bring herself back up to her feet as she runs forward, AND TAKES HARPER DOWN BEFORE SHE CAN EVEN STAND WITH A QUICK LEG DROP! That jiggle… :ahh:
Persephone: Amber is waiting for Harper to get back up to her feet now! AS SHE GOES FOR LIFE ALERT! Sorry, Amber Alert… but it’s Harper that manages to side step the early attempt, idiot, as Amber faceplants to the ground and Harper is moving forward as she grabs her and lifts her up off of her feet, AND TAKES HER DOWN TO THE GROUND WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX!
Stew-O: Amber grabbing her neck as she rolls backward to gain momentum and bring herself up to a knee, BUT IT’S HARPER THAT RUNS TOWARDS HER AND LEAPS INTO THE AIR AS SHE TAKES AMBER DOWN WITH A JUMPING DDT! Harper keeping that intensity as she’s back up and grabbing Amber by the arm as she pulls her in, AND RIGHT INTO A RIPCORD ENZUIGIRI!
Gavin Kirkland: Amber is managing to keep herself upright balancing herself and her breasts as she recovers from the Enzuigiri, BUT IT’S HARPER THAT RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK TO HER BOOBIES TAKING HER DOWN TO THE GROUND! Amber tumbling down as Harper grabs her by the head and throws her to the ropes with an Irish whip, AS SHE GOES FOR ANOTHER DROPKICK!
Persephone: Nah, Amber is competent which is surprising as she grabs onto the ropes as Harper falls to the ground like a dying fish. Harper getting up to her knees as she’s trying to recover before Amber can come over, HAH! AMBER COMES FORWARD AND RAKES THE EYES OF HARPER LEE!
(Amber would dig her fingers into Harper’s eyes as the Ref doesn’t hesitate on stepping forward as she separates the two of them as the Ref and Amber get into a heated argument. Both of them yelling at one another as Harper Lee slowly rises from behind)
Stew-O: HARPER WITH A SCHOOL-BOY PIN! THE REF SLIDES DOWN FOR THE COUNT!
Gavin Kirkland: AMBER’S FINE ASS KICKS OUT OF THE PIN! Both of them are back up now, HARPER! DRAGON FIST! STIFF RIGHT HOOK SENDS AMBER KEYS FLAT TO THE GROUND! HARPER DROPS DOWN AS WELL AS SHE HOOKS THE LEG ONCE MORE GOING FOR A PIN TO FOLLOW UP THE OTHER ONE!
Persephone: Wooo, I’m so excited about this match continuing…
Stew-O: AMBER GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Harper sitting up for a moment as she’s getting back up to her feet as Amber is slowly recovering behind her. Harper grabbing her by her head, as she looks to send a knee strike! But it’s Amber that manages to push her leg away before it connects, AS SHE SWEEPS HARPER’S OPPOSITE LEG WITH HER ARM SENDING HER DOWN!
Gavin Kirkland: Harper down on the ground, LET’S GO! THEY’RE MOUNTING EACH OTHER! WOOOOOOOOOOOO! THAT’S WOMEN’S WRESTLING RIGHT THERE!
Persephone: Man can you shut the fuck up.
Gavin Kirkland: Damn I see prejudice. :adpeek: As Amber begins to slam punches towards the beautiful face of Harper as she’s relentless in her attacks! The Ref intervening quickly after ten as she splits up the both of them as Amber is back up to her feet with her hands in the air, BUT SHE STEPS FORWARD ANYWAYS AND STOMPS DOWNWARD ONTO HARPER’S FACE! I like a woman who likes it rough. :uh:
Persephone: Amber bringing Harper up, as she connects with one of those cool uppercut things to her jaw that sends her back! Harper runs forward like a dumbass, AS AMBER CATCHES HER INTO A DDT! Told you, already 10x better than Harper Lee in the ring.
Stew-O: Harper grabbing her head as Amber is bringing her up once more, as Harper takes a swing towards her! But not before Amber ducks under, SHE’S GOING FOR A SUCIAKICK! But not before Harper ducks under the Superkick attempt as she grabs Amber from behind, AS SHE TAKES AMBER DOWN WITH A TEARDROP SUPLEX AS BOTH OF THEM ARE DOWN!
Gavin Kirkland: Midsection grabbing, this match is everything I envisioned and more. :blessed: Amber grabbing her neck as Harper locks in a headlock, but not before Amber connects with a back elbow before Harper can fully synch it in as both of them are back up to their feet! Amber grabbing Harper by the head as she’s stunned and throwing her towards a corner as she runs towards her, AS AMBER GOING FOR A LEAPING CLOTHESLINE TO THE CORNER!
Persephone: But Harper manages to pull herself out of the way! Harper hobbling away from Amber moron as Amber makes her way over and turns her around, BUT IT’S HARPER THAT SHOVES HER AWAY AS SHE RUNS FORWARD AND TAKES AMBER DOWN WITH A SLING BLADE!
Stew-O: Amber grabbing at her head as Harper isn’t done as she rebounds off the ropes and back seeing the momentum back in her favor, AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A PENALTY KICK STRAIGHT TOWARDS HER FACE! Amber rolling around in pain as Harper isn’t stopping one bit as she’s bringing her right back up, STANDING SPANISH FLY TAKES AMBER DOWN! HARPER WITH THE PIN FROM THERE!
Gavin Kirkland: Amber powers out! This great women’s match continues! :blessed:
Persephone: You and I have some very different opinions about which match is good and which match isn’t.
Stew-O: Can’t we just like all the matches. :noah:
Gavin Kirkland: ANYWAYS! Harper isn’t stopping as she leaps in the air and goes for an elbow drop to the breasts of Amber! But Amber manages to roll out of the way before anything can happen and :dame:. Amber is up to a knee as Harper grabs her by the head, but Amber kicks it off with a sharp right elbow to the face of Harper before she can do anything! But Harper with a knee to retaliate back as Amber doubles over! Harper sweeping the leg as Amber falls down to all-fours which, by the way, is my favorite position! AS HARPER STEPS UP AND LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND CONNECTS WITH A STEP UP DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! TRAMPOLINE CONNECTS!
Persephone: I hope that gave her brain damage and if that didn’t I hope this move does the trick. Harper grabbing Amber and setting her up, SHE’S GOING FOR A SUNSET FLIP TO THE TURNBUCKLES! But Amber manages to slip under the PGM… whatever that means, as her skinny ass pulls herself up to her feet behind Harper as she rolls through!
Stew-O: AND GOES FOR A HURRICANRANA! BUT HARPER TURNS IT INTO A OCTOPUS STRETCH! HARPER TIME LOCKED IN! Amber is screaming in pain as she’s trying to escape out of the move knowing that if she doesn’t that Harper would be coming out with the victory in Sweden tonight! Harper dropping as much weight as she can into the move as Amber continues to try and find a way out of it!
Gavin Kirkland: :noah: I like that position too does Amber really need to escape out of it?! But sadly she is as she’s attempting to straighten herself up as Harper is on thin ice, AS AMBER DROPS HERSELF DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS BACKFIRST CRUSHING HARPER! Amber in a whole lot of pain right now as she’s continuing to fight through it as she brings Harper back up to her feet as she grabs her and turns her around as she leaps into the air, DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER!
Persephone: Nope! Harper manages to slip out of it and shove Amber down to the ground! It’s what she deserves anyways. Amber grabbing her back as Harper turns around again and once again runs to the ropes and back!
Stew-O: BUT IT’S AMBER THAT LIFTS HERSELF UP INTO THE AIR AND TAKES HARPER DOWN WITH A HURRICANRANA!
Gavin Kirkland: HARPER WITH A DRAGON FIST OUT OF NOWHERE THOUGH!
Persephone: Amber falling flat down to the ground as Harper ends up backed up in the corner and I think she sees an opportunity to end this match, good, end this quickly for me. I need to get back to my food. Harper stomping her feet now looking like an idiot as Amber is beginning to crawl over to the turnbuckles and bring herself up to her feet as she backs herself up as she’s trying her best to recover but apparently a right hook can take the wind out of someone. Amber about to leave out of the corner, but Harper is beginning to run towards her before she can as thank god she looks like she’s about to finish this match!
Stew-O: HARPER RUNNING AROUND AS AMBER DOESN’T SEE IT! SHE’S GOING FOR THE RUNNING FACE WASH! PEACE SIGN ABOUT TO MEET AMBER’S FACE AT 100 MILES PER HOUR!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT IT’S AMBER THAT WRAPS HER ARMS AROUND HER MIDSECTION :ahh: AS SHE ROLLS HER UP ONCE MORE INTO A SCHOOLBOY PIN! But she isn’t going for the pin as it allows her to push away and avoid Harper’s finishing move as both of them are back up to their feet! Harper is completely stunned as I’m guessing she was going to suppose that her finishing move was going to connect! She was going to get a win over a EAW Hall of Famer! BUT THAT’S NOT THE CASE! AMBER DOING FOR THAT DOUBLE KNEE BACKBREAKER ONCE MORE!
Persephone: YES! YES IT DID CONNECT! PLEASE FINISH THIS MATCH I BEG! Amber sees the opportunity as she’s dragging herself back up to her feet and beginning to climb, scaling up the turnbuckles as she’s up on the top rope! Let’s hope she doesn’t break a hip doing this!
Stew-O: SHE LEAPS OFF! DIRTI DIVE! CONNECTS! FROG SPLASH ACROSS THE BODY OF HARPER TAKES ALL THE AIR OUT OF HER BODY! THIS IS AMBER’S CHANCE TO WIN THIS MATCH! SHE HOOKS THE LEG AS THE REF SLIDES DOWN AND GOES FOR THE PIN ON ONE-HALF OF THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! THIS MIGHT CALL FOR THE END OF THE MATCH RIGHT HERE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘All It Takes For Your Dreams to Come True’ plays up once more to an astounding amount of cheers as Amber Keys gets up to her knees. Collecting herself and catching her breath she looks around as she puts her hands on her hips before the Ref comes over and helps her up to her feet. She looks over to him as he takes her hand and raises it high in the air as she gives a smirk in response before looking back down at her knocked out opponent down on the canvas. She proceeds to run over to the corner as she jumps up the turnbuckles and look around before raising her arms in the air as she continues to look around before jumping off and circling around as she continues her celebration of her victory here tonight)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen here is your winner… AMBER KEYS!!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: :noah: I don’t know what to say! I’m so conflicted, but there’s one thing that we know for sure and that’s the fact that Amber Keys comes out with the victory tonight in Sweden!
Persephone: Eh, could’ve been better, but hey at least it’s over, now I can get back to my food and not care about whatever the hell happens next and pretend I actually enjoy this job, congratulations Harper, or whoever won…
Stew-O: The last time Amber Keys came out with the victory in a match was two Pain For Pride’s ago, more than a calendar year ago-
Gavin Kirkland: STOP! NO! I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THAT AGAIN!
Stew-O: Fine… but you get the point. She comes out with a well-deserved victory in Sweden tonight! Just further showing that even with nearly a year of ring rust from her last dance in that ring Amber Keys has still got it! She’s proven herself time after time again and this is an example that she’s still got it!
(The last shot is Amber about to leave the ring before catching her eye on Harper Lee. She’s sitting in the corner with a disappointed look on her face before both of them make eye contact with one another. Amber snickers as she blows a kiss before leaving out of the ring as she turns around and raises her hands up one more time as from there the camera would transition to elsewhere)
(The camera fades back to the stage as Komatsu Ogawa is back at the podium for the final time as he begins to speak.)
Komatsu Ogawa: Elitist of the Year. This is an award so many Elitists can only hope to one day obtain. This award year after year is presented to that year’s greatest male Elitist. It’s the award every male on the roster strives for, though in the end there can only be one winner. This is a privilege that can never be taken away from you, one that’s guaranteed to help create a lasting legacy for you. To be considered the greatest male Elitist of the year is an honor, especially when you consider the names that have won this award before. Though, not exactly comparable to the great MITSUBACHI, who should have at least been nominated for this category, last year’s winner was Mr. DEDEDE for the third time in his career. He’s one of many high profile names to win this award, and tonight we find out who was 2020’s greatest male competitor. While the great Artist’s exclusion leaves much to be desired, once again we find ourselves with quite the field of talent. With all of these men holding World Championships, main eventing Pain for Pride, and so much more, let’s take a look at the nominees.
(A highlight video begins to play featuring each Elitist, as well as the accolades and milestones they’ve reached throughout the year:
- Drake King
- Visual Prophet
- Jamie O’Hara
- Mr. DEDEDE
- Rex McAllister
(The video ends and Komatsu is seen rolling his eyes while holding the envelope containing the result. The crowd begins cheering in anticipation, as well as shouting out names as Komatsu begins to open the envelope.)
Komatsu Ogawa: And your 2020 “Male Elitist of the Year”…. It should be MITSUBACHI, but instead it is….. DRAKE KING!!!
(The arena bursts into a mixed reaction, and soon after ‘Triumph’ by Tenth Dimension hits. After a few seconds Drake King begins to walk towards the stage, and he’s wearing his Jesus robes as just he usually would. As Drake walks towards the podium he looks right at the trophy before looking back towards the crowd, soaking in the reaction from the packed arena. After Komatsu hands Drake the trophy he begins to step away from the podium, allowing “Drake the Redeemer” to finally speak for the first time since Road to Redemption.)
Drake King: To be quite frank, this does not surprise me. Not in the slightest. This was supposed to happen. It was destined to the moment I returned to this company back at Bloodsport. This trophy, to the EAW universe and to everyone else in that locker room, is supposed to be a symbol of excellence. It’s supposed to be the payoff for all your hard work throughout the year, which is why everyone on the roster works as hard as they do. Realistically, I don’t believe there was any other option here even if I hadn’t returned. Please tell me, who has worked harder than I have this year? Who has accomplished more than I have? Following the standards set by this company, the Elitists, and all of you, yes. I am the Elitist of the year. I do deserve to hold this award no matter how you put it, but I’m not here to celebrate the accomplishments of a known sinner.
Drake King: Sure, I made history by becoming a double Champion just one month after winning my first World Championship. Sure, I fulfilled every promise I made last time I was up here accepting my award for the most improved Elitist of 2019. All of this is very true. I’ve accomplished things many don’t get the opportunity to just this year alone. I’ve had a career-making year to the vast majority, but that’s not what should be acknowledged here. The Drake King that won all those Championships earlier in the year is not who should be given this honor. That Drake should not be celebrated, or looked up to in any way, shape or form. That’s why I’m going to take this award and use it as an opportunity to spread my message with an even greater platform. I want each and every person watching this to follow in my footsteps, and one day this could be you. One day you could be the one up here accepting your award for either male or female Elitist of the year. If you need any more reason to believe in Drake the Redeemer, here you go. Here you have it, the fruits of my labor. The result of months of hard work, all to continue making my vision for this place a reality.
Drake King: Let this be a lesson. It doesn’t matter how many different tests and trials you throw my way. It doesn’t matter how hard you try to rid this company of Drake King. I will always win. I am your Messiah, and this company will continue moving forward towards the future, and there is not a single thing you can ever say or do to stop me. Get used to it.
(‘Triumph’ begins to play once more, and Drake walks away from the podium, holding his trophy up the entire time. The crowd gives a mixed reaction once again but this time the boos are even louder than before after the speech made.)
Stew-O: This year Drake King managed to win not only his first ever World Championship in the World Heavyweight Championship back at King of Elite, but at Under Siege he won the Unified Tag Team Championships, becoming a Double Champion. It was a huge year for the man, even if he’s proud of that award for different reasons.
Persephone: Yeah… Like returning to the company pretending to be Jesus Christ. How in the actual God’s name did THIS GUY win that award instead of Rexy?? This show has to be rigged. It has to be!
(Drake is at the side of the stage where the cameras are, briefly standing in front of them holding up his award, allowing them to take pictures while the camera begins to fade away from the area.)
(The show fades back to the arena, and Bella Braxton is in the center of the ring with a microphone in hand.)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen… The following contest is our main event for the evening… And it is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!
(‘Wollt Ihr Das Bett In Flammen Sehen? (WidBiFs?) (Instrumental)’ by Rammstein hits, and the packed crowd descends into boos as Ronan Malosi makes his way out to the stage. He has a confident smirk on his face as he makes his way to the ring, completely ignoring all of the boos directed towards him. He doesn’t waste any time making his way into the ring, clearly ready for this match despite his loss at Road to Redemption.)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first… Residing in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania… Weighing in at 265 pounds…. RROOONNNAAANNN MMAAALLLLOOOOSSIIIII!!!!!!
Stew-O: Last week at Road to Redemption Ronan Malosi competed for the Unified Tag Team Championships alongside Ryan Wilson. The two would lose that match as the Realm would retain their titles, but tonight Ronan might have an even bigger match ahead of him even if nothing’s on the line.
Persephone: Don’t treat this like an opportunity for Ronan. That would imply Ronan actually has something to gain here, but he doesn’t. This is gonna be a squash match.
Gavin Kirkland: Well he is facing Mr. DEDEDE…. I wonder if he’ll bring Kassidy Heart to ringside with him. I really hope he does.
Stew-O: Surely Ronan knows what he’s getting himself into. He had a smile on his face as he walked down the ramp, so let’s see what he’s capable of.
(‘Value’ by A$AP Ferg hits, and Mr. DEDEDE soon makes his way to the stage… But not alone. The crowd boos even louder than before as both Mr. DEDEDE and Kassidy Heart make their way to the state, meanwhile Ronan Malosi looks confused seeing Kassidy’s presence in the match. His smile immediately fades as the two begin walking down the ramp. Mr. DEDEDE doesn’t look impressed at all, and definitely not amused knowing what happened at Road to Redemption.)
Bella Braxton: And his opponent…. Accompanied by Kassidy Heart…. Residing in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic…. Weighing in at 218 pounds…. MIIIISSSSTTTEEEERRRR DDDDEEEEDDDEEEDDDEEE!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: YEESSSSSS!!!!! :blessed: SHE’S HERE!!
Stew-O: Well yes, Kassidy Heart is here at ringside, but that’s not who Ronan is facing here. Ronan’s facing Mr. DEDEDE, a Mr. DEDEDE that just lost two matches at Road to Redemption, both with very high stakes. This is gonna be an uphill battle for Ronan, that’s all I can really say.
Persephone: No. An uphill battle would be Ronan versus DEDEDE in a good mood. Not an angry DEDEDE who prrrobbbably doesn’t wanna start a whole losing streak in just two weeks. This is what you call an impossible match for Ronan.
Stew-O: I guess we’ll have to see. This is the final match of 2020, and this is sure to be a good one! Or at the very least, an interesting one.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Stew-O: And the main event match is underway! Mr. DEDEDE taking on Ronan Malosi, and this is the final match of the year! The match that’ll be wrapping up 2020! This has been a rollercoaster of a year with incredible highs and extremely unfortunate lows, but tonight we see a match I’m sure many fans have been waiting for. Mr. DEDEDE standing in his own corner as Ronan looks to be preparing himself for what’ll definitely be an uphill battle, AND NOW BOTH MEN LOCK UP-
Persephone: Uhhh. No… Actually, Ronan just rolled out of the ring like a coward.
Stew-O: Oh. He did.
Persephone: Yeah… Mr. DEDEDE’s just waiting inside of the ring meanwhile Ronan looks like he’s on the verge of a mental breakdown. He’s just walking around the ring, and you guys know I don’t care for anyone not named Rex but if this is just gonna be DDD throwing a nearly 7 foot tall grown man around the ring for 20 minutes I’ll admit I’m a bit interested.
Stew-O: That makes two of us. I don’t think Gavin’s actually paying attention to the two actually competing.
Gavin Kirkland: Come on Stew, can you blame me? LOOK at her! I wonder if she’s into polygamy. 🤔
Stew-O: Speaking of Kassidy, Kassidy’s just blocked Ronan’s way as he was walking around the ring, possibly debating whether or not he should even re-enter! I don’t expect Mr. DEDEDE to let this match end in a countout anyway, not after spending all that time flying out here! Ronan realizes he’s left with no choice as he slowly begins to slide into the ring. Mr. DEDEDE doesn’t look impressed at all, but I can’t exactly blame Ronan even if he’s known for doing things that could be considered cowardly- CHAOS THEORY!!!!
Persephone: HA!! NOPE!! DDD PUSHED RONAN OFF OF HIM BEFORE HE COULD THINK OF HITTING THAT CUTTER, AND NOW HE BOUNCES OFF OF THE ROPES!!! SPEAR!!!!!
Stew-O: RONAN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!!! Ronan barely managed to avoid that spear, and honestly if that connected this match could have ended before it even began! Ronan tried catching Mr. DEDEDE off guard by hitting his good friend Ryan Wilson’s finishing move early on in the match, but clearly that didn’t go to plan!
Gavin Kirkland: Completely agree. Kassidy looks amazing tonight. Like, she always does, but-
Stew-O: Gavin, the match.
Gavin Kirkland: RIGHT, the match! Uh, Ronan and DDD are finally beginning to circle the ring after whatever was going on the past few minutes I didn’t really pay any attention, and now both men are beginning to lock up! Ronan is using his power to slowly push DDD towards the corner, but the chairman manages to turn it around and send Ronan into the corner instead! The referee begins a count of five- but before he could even come close to five Ronan goes for a kick to DDD’s gut- just for DDD to catch his foot!
Stew-O: WHAT A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION BY MR. DEDEDE, AND NOW HE SENDS RONAN INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN- AND HITTING A HUGE RUNNING FOREARM SMASH! Mr. DEDEDE now running the ropes while Ronan stumbles out of the corner, AND HE GOES FOR A HUGE LARIAT- BUT RONAN MANAGES TO DUCK UNDER IT! RONAN ATTEMPTING TO HIT DDD WITH HIS OWN CLOTHESLINE- BUT MR. DEDEDE CATCHES HIS ARM, AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE GRAND SLAM!!!
Persephone: Nope! Ronan actually hit Mr. DEDEDE with a series of elbows to the side of his head and managed to escape the move. Ronan now grabbing DDD in a headlock, before punching him in the face. Ronan now with a knee to the midsection, and he’s just pounding away on Mr. DEDEDE so he doesn’t have a chance to actually fight back and it’s smart… But anyone with a brain could tell you how this is gonna end for him. Ronan now has Mr. DEDEDE’s head, and he’s smashing it against the top turnbuckle over and over again. Mr. DEDEDE now is stumbling out of the corner but Ronan still doesn’t let him breathe, as he grabs him from behind AND SENDS HIM SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!!
Gavin Kirkland: Mr. DEDEDE now is barely stumbling out of the corner, AND NOW RONAN RUNS THE ROPES BEFORE SENDING THE CHAIRMAN OUTSIDE OF THE RING WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! Ronan somehow managed to get the upper hand at the moment, but how long will that last? Ronan’s quickly rolled out of the ring, AND NOW HE GRABS MR. DEDEDE BEFORE QUICKLY RAMMING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE! RONAN STILL HAS AHOLD OF THE CHAIRMAN, AND NOW HE THROWS HIM FACE FIRST INTO THE RINGPOST!! Ronan now rolls Mr. DEDEDE back into the ring, and he goes for the first pinfall of the match-
Stew-O: JUST FOR MR. DEDEDE TO IMMEDIATELY GET THE SHOULDER UP! I don’t think the referee even made it to a count of one there, and Ronan can’t believe it! Ronan now getting on top of Mr. DEDEDE, and he’s just punching away at him! I gotta say, while this may be one of the bigger matches in Ronan’s career he’s actually doing a great job of keeping the chairman down! You never want to give someone like Mr. DEDEDE even a second to recover and Ronan’s definitely taken note of that! Ronan now dragging Mr. DEDEDE back up to his feet, AND HE GOES FOR A SUPLEX-
Persephone: KNEE TO THE HEAD BY MR. DEDEDE, AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE IMPALER- No! Ronan rolled right back out of the ring to try and create some space but this time DDD rolls out of the ring to follow him! Ronan’s backing away from Mr. DEDEDE, but once again Kassidy is right there to stop him- AND THAT ALLOWS DDD TO HIT RONAN WITH A HUGE KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION, BEFORE SLAMMING HIS FACE ONTO THE RINGPOST! This is exactly what Ronan wanted to avoid, but like I said. Anyone with a brain saw this coming, it was only a matter of time.
Gavin Kirkland: Ronan should be grateful if you ask me. Did you see how close he got to Kassidy there? Who cares whether he wins the match or not? Anyways Ronan is trying to escape this assault from Mr. DEDEDE, but DDD is able to grab Ronan before slamming him face first onto the apron! RONAN WITH A RIGHT HAND- NO! DDD BLOCKED IT BEFORE HITTING RONAN WITH HIS OWN! Ronan’s struggling right now.. He’s gonna have to hurry and make something happen. This is exactly what he tried to avoid and now this match is in Mr. DEDEDE’s favor!
Stew-O: Mr. DEDEDE now grabbing Ronan, BEFORE SENDING HIM INTO- WAIT A SECOND, NO! RONAN MANAGES TO TURN THINGS AROUND AND SEND MR. DEDEDE INTO THE BARRICADE, AND NOW RONAN QUICKLY GRABS THE CHAIRMAN BEFORE LAUNCHING HIM INTO THE STEEL STEPS!! Ronan now has a grin on his face seeing what he just did to the Chairman, but Ronan’s actually not stopping there! Ronan’s picking up Mr. DEDEDE, AND HE JUST HIT MR. DEDEDE WITH A HUGE URANAGE SLAM ONTO THE STEEL STEPS!!!
Persephone: That’s gotta hurt. Gotta admit this has been a bit less one sided than I thought it’d be. Ronan quickly picked Mr. DEDEDE back up, AND NOW HE HITS ANOTHER URANAGE, THIS TIME ON THE APRON! This is exactly what I like to see! If I can’t get a Rex McAllister match, getting to see someone’s spine potentially broken is a close enough second. Thank God the referee is being lenient here because I don’t want some stupid ten count ruining this for me. Besides, the more they kill each other the shorter this match should be. Hopefully.
Gavin Kirkland: Ronan now has Mr. DEDEDE in a front facelock, AND HE WAS GONNA GO FOR A SUPLEX ON THE OUTSIDE BUT MR. DEDEDE MANAGES TO PULL HIMSELF DOWN, BEFORE LIFTING RONAN UP AND DROPPING HIM STOMACH FIRST ONTO THE BARRICADE! Ronan falling off the barricade, and I can’t even imagine how badly that must hurt! This has been a very violent match so far, and honestly I feel like we’re still far from over! Mr. DEDEDE is only just now rolling Ronan back into the ring, but Ronan’s wasting no time rolling towards the other side of the ring!
Stew-O: IT LOOKS LIKE RONAN TRIED ROLLING BACK OUT OF THE RING BUT MR. DEDEDE MANAGED TO STOP HIM IN HIS TRACKS WITH A HUGE STOMP TO THE MIDSECTION! Ronan is out on the apron, and now Mr. DEDEDE is pulling him back up to his feet- BUT RONAN JUST GOUGED AT HIS EYES!! RONAN JUST WENT AT MR. DEDEDE’S EYES, AND HE QUICKLY FOLLOWED IT UP WITH AN ELBOW SMASH SO I DON’T THINK THE REFEREE REALIZED WHAT HE DID! Ronan now re-entering the ring while Mr. DEDEDE holds his eyes, AND NOW RONAN HITS THE CHAIRMAN WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO THE LEFT KNEE!
Persephone: Oh yeah that’s the injured one or whatever right?
Stew-O: Many months ago earlier in the year Mr. DEDEDE received an injury with that left knee, and now Ronan’s made an amazing choice capitalizing on it. I’m sure he did his research coming into this match, and while gouging at the eyes and going after pre-existing injuries may be frowned upon, I don’t think Ronan really cares. Not as long as he has the upper hand.
Persephone: Of course he doesn’t care, he’s fighting the EAW Chairman.
Gavin Kirkland: Ronan now grabbing Mr. DEDEDE’s left leg, AND HE PUTS HIM IN A SINGLE LEG BOSTON CRAB!! RONAN MALOSI HAS MR. DEDEDE IN A SINGLE LEG BOSTON CRAB!! Once again Ronan has a smile on his face as he’s going after that old injury, and now he’s just looking right at Kassidy! This is frustrating to watch! Kassidy doesn’t look too happy seeing Ronan attacking DDD like this, and I’m honestly having second thoughts about this match. In fact, maybe I should go comfort-
Persephone: I think you should let him, Stew. She’s the one who eats people, right? That’d be pretty fun to watch.
Stew-O: I don’t know if we can afford to lose a commentator during our main event. Anyways, Mr. DEDEDE is struggling in the submission right now and I can’t exactly blame him. It’s not just any submission Ronan has him in, his left knee injury is being attacked right now and that’s gotta hurt far worse than any normal submission would! I’m sure Ronan thinks he has this match in the bag right now and I can’t exactly blame him. If he manages to re-aggravate that injury Mr. DEDEDE would be at such a huge disadvantage!
Persephone: Well that didn’t last too long. Mr. DEDEDE rolled onto his back, and now he’s kicking away at Ronan, causing Ronan to let go of the submission. Ronan is trying to stay on top of the match though as he quickly grabs Mr. DEDEDE and goes for an irish whip- BUT INSTEAD MR. DEDEDE PULLS RONAN INTO A LEAPING REVERSE STO! Just like that the Chairman is back in the match. Even an injury isn’t gonna stop him I guess, and that’s not what Ronan wants to hear. He might wanna go back to having endless matches with Ryan Wilson after tonight. At least he has a real chance at beating that Ryan.
Gavin Kirkland: Mr. DEDEDE is back to his feet, meanwhile Ronan is slowly using the turnbuckles to get back up as well. WAIT WAIT WAIT, RAPTURE BY MR. DEDEDE- NO!! THAT WAS CLOSE! RONAN WAS NEARLY HIT WITH THAT RUNNING BOOT TO THE FACE BUT HE JUST BARELY MANAGED TO GET OUT OF THE WAY! RONAN NOW PULLING MR. DEDEDE BACK OUT OF THE CORNER, AND HE HAS HIM BY HIS ARM!! THE SOUVENIR! THE RIPCORD RIGHT HOOK CONNECT- NO IT DOESN’T CONNECT!!!
Stew-O: MR. DEDEDE DUCKED UNDER THE RIGHT HOOK, AND NOW HE GRABS RONAN BY THE HEAD AS RONAN TURNS BACK TOWARDS HIM! DEMOLITION!!! DEMOLITION, THE CUTTER CONNECTS ON RONAN MALOSI!! That might be it! Ronan might be out just like that and now Mr. DEDEDE is going for his own first pinfall of the match, which just might also be the last!
Stew-O: RONAN MALOSI GETS THE SHOULDER UP!! Ronan actually managed to get the shoulder up before three, meaning this match is still on! Ronan is putting up a great fight, you have to give him props for his performance here.
Persephone: Now why would anyone have to do that if Ronan just loses anyway? All Ronan did was kick out of a move, he’s still down on the mat. Ronan now rolled back down out of the ring to try and recover once again, and if we’re being honest it looks like Ronan just can’t handle this match. Sure he’s had the upper hand now and then, but just look at the guy. Anyways Ronan’s finally starting to get back to his feet- JUST FOR MR. DEDEDE TO BEGIN RUNNING THE ROPES! “VINTAGE” DEDEDE!
Gavin Kirkland: RONAN MOVED OUT OF THE WAY!! MR. DEDEDE DIDN’T EXPECT RONAN TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY, BUT RONAN NOW HITS MR. DEDEDE WITH A HUGE BOOT TO THE FACE BEFORE HE COULD EVEN THINK OF GETTING BACK UP! Ronan rolling Mr. DEDEDE back into the ring before taking a second to catch his breath, and you might be wrong Persephone. Ronan’s doing pretty well for himself right now! Ronan now rolling back into the ring, AND HE QUICKLY PICKS UP MR. DEDEDE, AND DROPS HIM BACK DOWN INTO A POWERBOMB BEFORE POPPING HIM BACK UP TO HIS FEET! HOT TAKE HELLFIRE CONNECTS!! THE COVER BY RONAN!!
Persephone: You were saying?
Gavin Kirkland: :lupe: Yeah, about that…
Stew-O: MR. DEDEDE JUST KICKED OUT AT ONE!! We’ve seen this time and time again.. This unreal resilience from Mr. DEDEDE being put to use here, and Ronan Malosi can’t believe his eyes! Hot Take Hellfire is an insane combination of moves, yet it only got a one count! Ronan getting back up to his feet and he’s just shaking his head, meanwhile Kassidy definitely has a smile on her face now. The tables have definitely turned compared to a few minutes ago, and now Ronan is just stomping away at the Chairman!
Persephone: Ronan’s all over Mr. DEDEDE right now, but come on. He might as well just give up. THAT just got a one count. We’re this long into the match, and that only got a one count. What can Ronan really do at this point? If he really does insist on not just quitting I guess this is his best bet though. Maybe he can just try beating DDD into submission. It’d probably take a few hours, but it’s worth a shot anyway, right?
Stew-O: RONAN WITH A STOMP TO MR. DEDEDE’S KNEE! Now that’s what Ronan needs to keep doing if you ask me. Mr. DEDEDE isn’t doing too good right now, but after what we just saw it really is only a matter of time until he gets back in the match. If he only has one leg to stand on.. I’m not sure how much he’ll be able to do! Ronan repeatedly attacking that leg, and now he’s pulling Mr. DEDEDE back up, BEFORE DELIVERING A FIREMAN’S CARRY KNEE LIFT!! RONAN JUST HIT MR. DEDEDE WITH THAT KNEE LIFT AND I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT AS HE RUNS THE ROPES! SLEEPING PILL!! ANOTHER COVER BY RONAN!!
Gavin Kirkland: AND ANOTHER FAST KICKOUT BY MR. DEDEDE!!! That only barely passed a count of one! Ronan is growing noticeably frustrated and I really can’t blame him. He’s on top of the match right now but it’s like even his best moves aren’t doing much to keep Mr. DEDEDE down. Ronan’s pulling Mr. DEDEDE back up to his feet and not gonna lie, I really have no idea what it’s gonna take to beat this guy- HEY WAIT A MINUTE!! WHAT!?
Persephone: EGO DEATH DRIVER BY MR. DEDEDE!!! While Ronan was pulling him back up Mr. DEDEDE got Ronan in a front facelock and quickly delivered the Ego Death Driver. Mr. DEDEDE now covering Ronan Malosi, and if Ronan knew better he’d just stay down for the three count. Don’t embarrass yourself any further, this really was never close and those last two pinfalls just proved it.
Persephone: Well, on top of having the worst opinions in the company and apparently being a potential rapist, Ronan’s also a complete idiot. Why would he want to keep this match going? Does he actually think he has a chance here?
Stew-O: Mr. DEDEDE simply shook his head at Ronan managing to get the shoulder up, and I’ll be honest. I might have to agree with you Persephone. I’m not too sure how much of a chance Ronan has right now. Had Ronan stayed on top of the match then maybe eventually he could have worn him down, but that’s not what’s happening right now. Instead Mr. DEDEDE is on top of Ronan, AND NOW HE’S PUNCHING AWAY AT HIM! RONAN IS TRYING TO DEFEND HIMSELF BUT MR. DEDEDE IS JUST LAYING INTO RONAN WITH ALL OF THESE PUNCHES!
Gavin Kirkland: Man.. Mr. DEDEDE said himself that he wasn’t happy after Road to Redemption, where he lost BOTH of his matches. The Grand Prix, and the Extreme Elimination Chamber for the World Heavyweight Championship! Now DDD is just destroying Ronan, and now Ronan has grabbed the ropes before pulling himself out onto the apron! Mr. DEDEDE quickly follows behind though, AND HE RAMS RONAN INTO THE RINGPOST AS SOON AS HE GETS OUT THERE! Ronan is barely staying on the apron right now, having to hold onto the top rope to do so!
Persephone: Yeah I don’t think he’s gonna be up there much longer! DEMOLITION OFF OF THE APRON!! MR. DEDEDE JUST HIT RONAN WITH DEMOLITION, SENDING BOTH MEN OFF OF THE APRON AND DOWN TO RINGSIDE! See!? This is why Ronan should’ve just taken the loss! Look at him now! Look at what he has to deal with all because he just had to kick out and keep the match going. This is not the match for all that, especially not when Mr. DEDEDE’s all moody or whatever. Mr. DEDEDE just rolled Ronan back into the ring before re-entering himself… And he’s not going for the cover. Why? Did Ronan hit him in the head a few too many times?
Stew-O: Mr. DEDEDE is backing up into the corner, and I honestly think we know what he’s setting up for right now. These past few minutes Mr. DEDEDE kicked things up to a new level, and THIS is what Ronan must have feared at the start of the match. This has been all DEDEDE as of late and now this match might be coming to an end here. Christmas week might not be going how Ronan wanted it to, but he definitely put up a great fight. Ronan has finally made it back up to his feet, AND NOW DEDEDE CHARGES IN! SPEAR!!!
Gavin Kirkland: DEATH-RO!!! RONAN CAUGHT MR. DEDEDE WITH THE DEATH-RO!!!! RONAN HIMSELF LOOKS LIKE HE CAN’T BELIEVE IT, BUT HE WASTES NO TIME GOING FOR THE COVER! OH MY GOD, DON’T TELL ME THAT’S IT! DID RONAN MALOSI JUST DEFEAT MR. DEDEDE!?!?
Gavin Kirkland: NO!!! MR. DEDEDE KICKS OUT!!! That was Ronan’s best shot! That was his best chance at winning the match and Mr. DEDEDE once again managed to kick out! Ronan slamming his fists onto the mat, but more importantly I think Kassidy looked a bit worried! None of us expected Ronan to even pull out the Death-Ro there. I really hope she’s okay though. Maybe she should come sit over here with us. Or better yet, on my-
Persephone: Anyways, Ronan Malosi is barely finding his way back to his feet, and if he hasn’t given up yet there’s really just no hope for the guy. Like, he just kicked out of the Death-Ro. Ronan needs to get it through his head. He’s kinda garbage. He couldn’t beat two little girls last week, does he really think he’ll do any better against an old man?
Stew-O: Well Mr. DEDEDE is far more than just an “old man”. There’s nobody quite like him, and defeating him isn’t gonna be easy no matter who you are. Ronan is pulling Mr. DEDEDE back up to his feet, and it looks like Ronan isn’t wasting his time trying to end this! RONAN GOING FOR THE DEATH-RO V2- BUT WAIT!!! MR. DEDEDE QUICKLY RAMS RONAN INTO THE TURNBUCKLES BEFORE RONAN COULD GET HIM UP FOR THE MOVE!! BOTH MEN DROP TO THE MAT, BUT MR. DEDEDE MIGHT HAVE JUST SAVED HIS CHANCES IN THIS MATCH!!
Persephone: Wait… Are you serious? Mr. DEDEDE saved his chances?? Come on. You can’t be serious. Have we been watching the same match? Because I’m pretty sure I’ve been watching Mr. DEDEDE take Ronan’s best moves and still kick out way faster than anyone else would. At this point Ronan could probably shoot him or something and Mr. DEDEDE would kick out at two. All Mr. DEDEDE did was make sure Ronan didn’t have the upper hand any longer. If we’re being honest Mr. DEDEDE had the match in his hands from the start. Ronan’s just been lucky.
Gavin Kirkland: Both men are slowly getting back to their feet, but Ronan’s up first seeing as Mr. DEDEDE was hit with the Death-Ro earlier! RONAN GOES TO SEND DEDEDE OUT OF THE RING, BUT MR. DEDEDE PULLS DOWN THE TOP ROPE AND SENDS RONAN OUT INSTEAD!! MR. DEDEDE NOW EXITING OUT TO THE APRON AS RONAN MANAGED TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, AND HE TAKES RONAN DOWN WITH A DIVING CLOTHESLINE!! Just like that Mr. DEDEDE is back in the match, and Ronan Malosi is in a whole lot of trouble!
Stew-O: Mr. DEDEDE now pulling Ronan up onto the ramp, AND I DON’T LIKE WHAT HE’S SETTING UP FOR! MR. DEDEDE GOES FOR THE IMPALER- BUT RONAN MANAGES TO KEEP HIMSELF DOWN! RONAN NOW LIFTS DDD UP, DROPPING HIM ONTO THE RAMP WITH A BACK BODY DROP!! Great move by Ronan! That’s not a move you want to get hit with on top of the entrance ramp, and honestly had Ronan been hit with that Impaler I do believe this match could have come to an end. There’s just no way Ronan would have been able to continue after that.
Persephone: Ronan now grabbing DDD by the head, BEFORE SLAMMING IT DOWN ONTO THE RAMP! MR. DEDEDE’S HEAD IS REPEATEDLY BEING SLAMMED DOWN ONTO THE RAMP! Maybe Ronan will crush his skull or something! That’d make this match sooo much more interesting! Nonetheless Ronan is just slamming his head over and over onto that ramp, and surely that’s gonna have to do SOMETHING to Mr. DEDEDE, right!? Then again I feel like I’ve seen it all at this point, I’m not gonna hold my breath. Ronan has the upper hand right now but soon we’ll see if this actually means anything or if Mr. DEDEDE will be Mr. DEDEDE and just come back anyway.
Gavin Kirkland: Ronan now is picking Mr. DEDEDE back up, and now he has him in a powerbomb position before charging back towards the ring apron! POWERBOMB ONTO THE APRON!!! RONAN MALOSI JUST POWERBOMBED MR. DEDEDE ONTO THE RING APRON, THAT’S GOTTA BE IT!! THERE’S NO WAY MR. DEDEDE CAN COMEBACK FROM SOMETHING LIKE THAT! Like I know what we’ve seen from the man just these past few months let alone his whole career, but come on! Did you see that!? This match is over. Ronan Malosi just beat Mr. DEDEDE.
Stew-O: Ronan just rolled Mr. DEDEDE back into the ring, and now he’s slowly but surely making his way back into the ring by walking up the steel steps. He’s just soaking in the moment as he probably feels the same way we do. That was a nasty powerbomb, and he did it onto the apron! Forget just this match, we might need to check on Mr. DEDEDE! For all we know that man could be seriously injured after that powerbomb. That was no joke, but right now I think Ronan’s about to capture the biggest victory in his career- SPEAR!!!!!
Persephone: RONAN JUST MOVED OUT OF THE WAY, AND MR. DEDEDE CRASHES SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST, BUT… WHAT!? WHAT THE HELL, HOW!?!? What type of drugs is this guy on?? Like the early kickouts were one thing, but how the hell did he just do that? Mr. DEDEDE just charged in for a spear after being POWERBOMBED ONTO THE RING APRON! Ronan’s somehow managed to avoid the spear every time Mr. DEDEDE went for it in this match, but you can just see the look on his face. The match nearly ended but not the way he thought it would.
Gavin Kirkland: WAIT WAIT WAIT, FORGET ALL OF THAT! RONAN JUST GRABBED MR. DEDEDE AND PULLED HIM INTO A SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP!! RONAN IS GONNA WIN THE MATCH AFTER ALL!! RONAN’S GONNA STEAL THE WIN AGAINST POSSIBLY THE GREATEST ELITIST OF ALL TIME!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!! MR. DEDEDE KICKS OUT OF THE PIN BEFORE TWO, BUT NOW RONAN PULLS HIM INTO ANOTHER ROLL UP! REMEMBER, THIS IS HOW THE BLICKY BOYZ WON IN THE GRAND PRIX, CHRIS ELITE HAD MANAGED TO ROLL UP MR. DEDEDE JUST LIKE RONAN IS DOING NOW!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT IT DOESN’T WORK!! DEDEDE KICKS OUT ONCE AGAIN!!
Stew-O: AND NOW MR. DEDEDE GRABS RONAN FOR THE GRAND SLAM- WAIT NO!! RONAN JUST KNEED MR. DEDEDE BUT I DON’T THINK THAT WAS IN THE MIDSECTION!! THE REFEREE IS BEHIND MR. DEDEDE SO HE COULDN’T SEE IT PROPERLY, BUT I’M PRETTY SURE RONAN JUST LOW BLOWED MR. DEDEDE!! MR. DEDEDE JUST DROPPED TO THE MAT, AND THAT TELLS YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW! RONAN WENT LOW, IT’S NOT THE RIGHT THING TO DO BUT THAT MIGHT HAVE GIVEN RONAN THE OPENING HE NEEDED TO WIN THE MATCH!!
Persephone: Ronan pulls Mr. DEDEDE back up to his feet- JUST TO DROP HIM BACK DOWN WITH THE SOUVENIR!!! Oh wow, Ronan might actually do it. I can only imagine how much Mr. DEDEDE would hate to lose right here but that might just be what happens. Ronan now is going for the cover- AND AS THE REFEREE GOES FOR THE COUNT HE PUTS HIS FEET ON THE ROPES FOR EVEN MORE LEVERAGE!
Persephone: Wow.. That’s what I get for being fooled to be honest. I don’t know why I ever believed Ronan actually had a shot here.
Gavin Kirkland: Well Ronan’s right back on top of Mr. DEDEDE, and he’s punching away at the Chairman as much as he can! At this point Ronan is just delivering hard hitting elbows to Mr. DEDEDE’s forehead, and honestly I do think Ronan may have a chance. We’ve talked about him a lot here, but while his actions may not have been morally correct they’ve definitely helped him get the upper hand on many occasions! Mr. DEDEDE may have once again kicked out of one of Ronan’s big moves, but Ronan is in control of the match still!
Stew-O: Ronan pulling Mr. DEDEDE back up- AND DEDEDE DELIVERS A HUGE HEADBUTT! That headbutt caused Ronan to stagger a bit, and now Mr. DEDEDE is firing off with huge lefts and rights! Mr. DEDEDE with forearm after forearm now, and there’s an irish whip into the ropes! JUMPING SHOULDER BLOCK BY MR. DEDEDE! Ronan getting back to his feet as DEDEDE runs the ropes, AND THERE’S ANOTHER SHOULDER BLOCK! MR. DEDEDE NOW IRISH WHIPPING RONAN INTO THE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN, AND HE DELIVERS A HUGE CLOTHESLINE, BEFORE DROPPING RONAN BACK DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A SNAPMARE!
Persephone: Mr. DEDEDE now running the ropes, AND HE DELIVERS A HUGE BOOT TO THE SIDE OF RONAN’S FACE! I’ll say this though. Mr. DEDEDE has yet to successfully pull off any of his huge finishing moves. Maybe it’s because he’s like 75, maybe it’s because Ronan actually came into this match prepared, I don’t know and I don’t care, but DEDEDE needs to change that if HE wants to win. Mr. DEDEDE now is running the ropes while Ronan is down, AND HE GOES FOR A CORKSCREW ELBOW DROP- BUT RONAN GETS OUT OF THE WAY!
Gavin Kirkland: BOTH MEN GET BACK TO THEIR FEET- BUT RONAN HITS MR. DEDEDE WITH A STRAIGHT RIGHT HOOK!! RONAN HITTING A VERSION OF THE SOUVENIR WITHOUT THE RIPCORD SETUP, AND NOW THIS IS THE OPENING RONAN NEEDED! Ronan’s clearly worn out, but I don’t think he cares at this point as he lifts DEDEDE up, AND DELIVERS THE FIREMAN’S CARRY KNEE LIFT!! RONAN NOW RUNNING THE ROPES, AND THE SLEEPING PILL CONNECTS ON MR. DEDEDE!!! Ronan just now hit three of his more powerful moves consecutively, and now I think he’s actually about to finish this match off! Ronan is laughing as he looks at Kassidy, and he definitely knows he has the upper hand right now! Ronan has Mr. DEDEDE by the arm, AND HE PULLS HIM IN FOR A SECOND DEATH-RO!!!!
Stew-O: MR. DEDEDE ROLLS OUT OF IT!!! HE ROLLED OUT OF THE DEATH-RO SET UP AND BACK TO HIS FEET, AND NOW MR. DEDEDE BACKPEDALS INTO THE ROPES AS RONAN IS CAUGHT OFF GUARD, SSSPPEEEEAAARRR!!!! IT CONNECTS!!! MR. DEDEDE ACTUALLY CONNECTS WITH THE SPEAR AFTER NOT BEING ABLE TO CONNECT WITH IT THE ENTIRETY OF THIS MATCH, AND NOW HE GOES FOR THE COVER WHILE RONAN MALOSI IS OUT COLD!! THAT’S GOTTA BE IT, THIS MATCH IS OVER AND DONE WITH!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner……. MMMMMIIIISSSSSTTTEEEEERRRRRR DDDDDEEEDDDEEEEDDDDEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
Stew-O: And that’s it! This match is over! You’ve gotta give Ronan credit where it’s due. He put up an excellent fight and this match could have definitely ended in his favor had the Death-Ro connected that second time! Unfortunately for him, Mr. DEDEDE is not like most Elitists. What should have kept him down, he somehow kept kicking out of, and once again Mr. DEDEDE gets a victory.
Persephone: I mean… This was obvious, wasn’t it? Please don’t tell me you guys ACTUALLY believed Ronan was winning this.
Gavin Kirkland: Don’t care! Kassidy is happy and that makes me happy!
Stew-O: What a way to close out 2020. Congratulations to Mr. DEDEDE, but watch out for Ronan Malosi. After what he’s done so far this season, 2021 could turn out to be an amazing year for him.
Persephone: Mhm. Okay that’s the end of the show right? I’m Persephone and I don’t really care about your names. See you all in 2021 unfortunately, bye.
(‘Value’ plays and the crowd begins booing loudly as Mr. DEDEDE gets back up to his feet. As the referee holds his hand up, Kassidy Heart enters the ring and raises his other hand. He looks almost unamused as Ronan Malosi has rolled out of the ring, still down and out after the match. Finally, as Mr. DEDEDE and Kassidy Heart celebrate the show begins to fade out for the final time in 2020.)
