( “Heavy Crown” by Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding plays as a music video starts up. All 16 competitors in the EAW Vixens Cup are put on display, with highlights reels playing of their abilities in this video package. )
( Camera cuts to the Air Canada Centre, where purple and blue lights shine around as the packed audience are on their feet, cheering and holding up their signs proudly as pyro shoots up from the stage in the colors of silver, purple and gold. )
Stew-O: WE EMANATE FROM THE AIR CANADA CENTRE IN THE HEART OF TORONTO, CANADA IN FRONT OF A PACKED BUILDING OF 20,000 OF CANADA’S FINEST! WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN TO DAY ONE OF THE TWO-DAY EAW NETWORK EXCLUSIVE EVENT, THE FIRST EVER EAW VIXEN’S CUP! I’m the voice of EAW, Stew-O, sitting alongside my broadcast partners, Hey Yo Chico–
Hey Yo Chico: HEY YO!
Stew: And Rex McIntyre!
Rex McIntyre: It’s an honor and privilege to sit alongside the legendary Stew-O to call what will be an action packed night! Sixteen of EAW’s finest female talent will be letting it all hang out, competing for THAT right up there!
( Camera shows the five foot tall Vixen’s Cup trophy, which is a gigantic solid gold cup wish cash inside of it. Sitting next to it as well is a smaller, alternate version of the Vixen’s Cup trophy, a gold V-shaped trophy seated on a display well lit up and covered by glass. )
Stew: It’s a prestigious prize for any of these sixteen combatants who will be putting themselves to the test both physically and mentally over the next two days! These ladies are going to show you EXACTLY how much heart and how much drive they have, and as Rex said this promises to be an ACTION-PACKED event! And joining us right now as our guest commentator for the night is none other than the EAW Specialists Champion: CAILIN DILLON!
( Cailin is seen sitting behind the announce desk, holding her Specialists Title )
HYC: Thanks for coming, lovely!
Cailin Dillon: I’m more than happy to be here! You guys really hit it on the head, these guys are going to SHOW OUT tonight and I couldn’t be any more excited. I feel like a fan again!
Stew: So Cailin, what can you expect from Day One tonight?
Cailin: These matches for Day One have been set up specifically to pit rivals against each other. I think we’re going to see a very dramatic night, because most of these matches are PERSONAL! You name it: Erica vs. Veena, Cameron vs. Aria, Cloud vs. Haruna… hell, Madison and Tarah have been trying to tear each other apart for an entire year! I think there’ll be a lot of drama, a lot of triumph, a lot of heartbreak. We’re gonna see some really good girls eliminated in the first round sadly, but the ends just may justify the means.
Stew: And on that note let’s give these people what they all came to see! Let’s take it up to the Ring Announcer!
( “Heavy Crown” comes to an end and the Ring Announcer is standing at the center of the ring. )
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen it is now time for the EAW VIXENS CUP TOURNAMENT!!! This is a single elimination round of 16 tournament, where the winner of each match advances up the bracket. The EAW Vixen who can manage to win the entire tournament will be awarded the EAW VIXEN’S CUP, AND A $1 MILLION DOLLAR BONUS IN CASH PRIZE MONEY! The woman who also wins the Vixen’s Cup will be able to trade in their trophy and receive a shot at either the Specialists Championship, or the EAW Vixens Championship at ANY PLACE, at ANY TIME within the next twelve months! ….
( “Fighting Fish” by Dessa hits… and the crowd comes to their feet as Rey Shamez makes her entrance, excitedly coming out to the ring and being embraced by this Toronto crowd. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
RA: This opening bout is a First Round match for the 2016 Vixens Cup, and is set for ONE FALL, and is to be contested under NO DISQUALIFICATION!.. Introducing first, from Portland, Oregon… REEEEEEEEEEY SHHHHAMEEEEEEEEEZZZZZZZ!!!!
HYC: This vivacious little sparkplug is one of my favorites to win this entire damned thing! Rey Shamez has been one of the most impressive young upstarts not just in the Vixens division, but in the entire company, and —
Rex: HANG ON A SECOND!
( As Rey is approaching ringside, Brody Sparks runs up on her from behind and floors her with a forearm )
HYC: WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT! IT’S HER OPPONENT BRODY SPARKS! BRODY COLD COCKS REY RIGHT UPSIDE THE BACK OF HER HEAD! And this crazy chica starts stomping a mudhole on Rey viciously! And with the No DQ stipulation the ref just decides to ring the bell!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: What an abrupt start not only to this match but to this tournament! Brody Sparks seems to have a fire lit up under her, and though I’ve yet to call one of her matches until now I’m certainly cognizant of her borderline psychotic personality and crazy antics!
HYC: Oh I think she’s crossed that line, Stew! This girl’s got a hair trigger, and she’s just exploding all over Rey with kicks! Rey can barely even defend herself! This match has gotten going, and Brody pulls Rey up… and is STRANGLING HER WITH HER BARE HANDS! SHE’S GOT REY BACKED INTO THE BARRICADE, AND IS CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF HER WITH HER BARE HANDS, AND SHAKING REY LIKE A MADWOMAN! But check this out! Rey’s snatching the wrists of Brody Sparks and is trying to yank that chokehold apart… and NOW REY MANAGES TO DO JUST THAT, AND SHE DUCKS DOWN A SHOULDER TO SEND BRODY SPINE FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! Now Rey hits repeated shoulder thrusts into the midsection, backs away, and hits a DEBILITATING ROUNDHOUSE! THAT BOOT GOES SMACKING THE SIDE OF BRODY SPARKS’ HEAD, AND BRODY COLLAPSES ON THE APRON BEFORE ROLLING INTO THE RING!
Rex: Rey digs under the ring now, she looks a bit fed up following that blindside by Brody.. and Rey pulls out a COOKIE SHEET! She tosses it in the ring, and digs back under the apron and pulls out a trashcan to toss in the ring as well! Now Rey digs under the ring one more time, and appears to have another trashcan coming our way… but BRODY SPARKS RECUPERATES QUICK ENOUGH TO HIT A BASEBALL SLIDE! Rey’s knocked to the ground, and is quickly recovering as Brody rushes back up to her feet, runs the ropes and comes back perhaps looking for a SUICIDE DIVE — BUT REY CUTS BRODY OFF WITH A TRASH CAN SHOT TO THE HEAD!!! BRODY COLLAPSES BACK IN THE RING! You could hear that loud crack of the trashcan busting over Brody’s head from a mile away, and Rey tosses the weapon in the ring before following suit, and going for a cover.
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE! TWWWW-
HYC: KICK OUT by Brody! Brody gets up to her feet quickly, and Rey hits a JUMPING KICK! Brody’s taken down, recovers, gets KNOCKED BACK DOWN by a spinning back elbow! Brody recovers again, and Rey reels her in, ducking her head under the arm and goes for a NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX STRAIGHT ONTO ONE OF THE TRASH CANS! NO, BRODY AVERTS DISASTER BY LANDING ON HER FEET BEHIND REY! Brody dashes over to the cookie sheet laying on the canvas, Rey comes after her, and REY EATS A COOKIE SHEET SHOT OVER THE HEAD FOR HER TROUBLES! Rey Shamez goes staggering back into the corner, looking pretty dazed, and Brody Sparks comes skipping over to her and… and plants a kiss right on Rey’s cheek! BUT REY FIRES BACK WITH A SLAP ACROSS THE FACE!!! I THINK WE’RE GONNA BE SEEING A LOTTA THOSE TONIGHT! AND BRODY’S SWEET SMILE TURNS INTO A LOOK OF SCORN, THAT’S THE WRONG BORICUA TO PISS OFF, AND BRODY MAKES REY PAY FOR IT BY SMASHING THE COOKIE SHEET OVER HER HEAD SEVERAL TIMES! A THIRD, FOUR, FIVE, SIX TIMES! SEVEN TIMES! EIGHT! BRODY GOING BERSERK WITH THOSE COOKIE SHEET SHOTS TO THE SKULL, UNTIL IT’S CONTORTED! Now Brody places the cookie sheet in front of Rey’s body, and that’s a rather large cookie sheet, large enough to cover a good part of Rey’s torso… and BRODY BACKS AWAY, JUST TO COME OUT OF THE GATE WITH A LOW DROPKICK STRAIGHT INTO THE COOKIE SHEET, AND INTO THE TORSO OF REY SHAMEZ!! Brody tosses the pan out of the ring and drags Rey away from the ropes for the hook of both legs!
Ref: OOOOOOOOONE! TWWWWW-
HYC: Kick out right at two!
Cailin: What a fit of aggression from Sparks that was! There’s definitely a screw loose or two, I’ll say. Not sure how quickly I’d jump at getting in the ring with that.
Stew: Brody Sparks gets back up, and appears to perk herself up despite half of her face glowing bright red following that brutal slap… and Brody drags Rey up to her feet.. and with ALL HER MIGHT, IRISH WHIPS HER ACROSS THE RING TO HIT THE TURNBUCKLE HARD AND COLLAPSE TO A SEATED POSITION. Rey’s left seated at the corner, and Brody comes over to her opponent, but now has one of the trashcans in hand, and Brody stands the trashcan up right in front of Rey’s body… and Brody backs away just to jet to the corner and hit a CANNONBALL!!! CORNER AIDED SWINGING DROPKICK INTO THE TRASHCAN!!! BUT WAIT A SECOND, REY HOISTS UP THE TRASHCAN AND CATCHES BRODY’S LEGS INSIDE OF THEM! Brody Sparks’ lower body is caught inside the trashcan, like a potato sack race, and Rey sprints up to her feet, grabs the other trashcan and PLACES IT OVER BRODY’S UPPER BODY! BRODY’S STANDING INSIDE A METAL TRASHCAN, AND HAS ONE COVERING HER TOP HALF, AND REY SHAMEZ SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES AND HITS A DISASTER KICK!!!! BOOT SMACKS ACROSS THE TRASHCAN-COVERED SKULL OF BRODY SPARKS, SENDING HER DOWN! AND NOW REY FOLLOWS UP, RUNNING TO THE ROPES AND HITS A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT ON THE TRASHCAN COVERED LEGS OF BRODY SPARKS! NOW REY TURNS AROUND, AND HITS THE SHAMEZ SOL!!! STANDING MOONSAULT INTO THE DOUBLE KNEE DROP, STRAIGHT INTO THE TRASHCAN COVERED TORSO OF BRODY SPARKS!!! REY PULLS BRODY OUT OF BOTH DENTED UP TRASHCANS, AND GETS THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: AND BRODY SPARKS KICKS OUT!
Cailin: Whoa! I wasn’t expecting that! I don’t know what’s more impressive, that attack by Rey or the fact that Brody was able to kick out of it!
Rex: You can tell Rey had every intention of finishing this match, but she’s going to have to revert to a different plan… Rey kicks aside one of the more severely dented trashcans, but takes a lesser dented metal trashcan and stands it upside-down before sluggishly pulling up Brody Sparks… and now now REY GOES FOR THE TILT-A-WHIRL SLAM INTO THE TRASHCAN!! BUT BRODY LANDS BEHIND REY, HOOKS HER FROM BEHIND AND HITS A REVERSE DDT, DRIVING THE BACK OF HER HEAD INTO THE TRASHCAN!!! That trashcan is still standing but has a MAJOR dent in it which Rey is laying on, and BRODY WITH A LAST SURGE HITS A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO CRUSH THE TRASH CAN EVEN MORE, DRIVING REY’S BODY FURTHER INTO IT!!!
HYC: Good lord! A hell of a counter, but that metal trashcan could be ripping deep into Rey’s skin right now! These two are pushing it to the limit in this opening match, and it don’t look like Brody’s finished either! Brody rolls herself out of the ring, still catching her breath, trying to walk off the pain she’s in, but she flips up the apron and digs under the ring, sifting through a few toys under there… and Brody pulls out… YOOOOO…. WHAT THE HELL CHICO???? IS… IS THAT A WHIP!?!?
( Brody enters the ring, and unwinds the whip as she begins twirling it around in her hand and circling the ring )
Cailin: OKAY, THIS GIRLS’ A COMPLETE LUNATIC!
HYC: I HOPE REY’S INTO S&M, BECAUSE SHE’S ABOUT TO GET MORE THAN WHAT SHE BARGAINED FOR IN THIS MATCH! REY’S TRYING TO PULL HERSELF BACK TO HER FEET…. AND BRODY SPARKS CRACKS THE WHIP, HITTING REY ACROSS THE ARM AS REY GOES ROLLING AROUND IN SEARING PAIN!!! AND BRODY CRACKS THE WHIP AGAIN, WHIPPING REY DOWN HER BACK, CAUSING REY TO YELL OUT IN PAIN! AND LOOK AT THIS, BRODY IS SKIPPING AROUND REY, WAITING FOR THE RIGHT SPOT AND RIGHT PLACE… AND CRACKS THE WHIP FOR A THIRD TIME, RIGHT INTO HER LOWER TAILBONE! JESUS CHRIST THAT IS SADISTIC! BRODY WITH THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEE–
Stew: KICK OUT BY REY!!! I think that was a bad move by Rey Shamez! She’s pretty much at Brody Sparks’ mercy now, Brody could literally go all night!
HYC: Like I said, hope she’s into S&M! Brody grabs ahold of that whip again.. and slowly creeps up behind Rey who’s holding that arm of hers in pain… and BRODY WRAPS THE WHIP AROUND REY’S THROAT, STANDING HER UP AND STRANGLING HER WITH THE LEATHER OF THAT WHIP! BRODY SPARKS IS JUST GOING TO STRANGLE THE LIFE OUT OF HER OPPONENT NOW! REY’S BARELY HANGING ON, AND BRODY KEEPS REARING BACK EVEN FURTHER FROM BEHIND! WHAT IS — HEY!!! HEY REY FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!!! REY WITH THE SILENT TREATMENT!!!! JUMPING CUTTER OUT OF NOWHERE! AND REY SHAMEZ COVERES BRODY SPARKS WITH ONE ARM OVER HER!
Ref: OOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Fighting Fish” by Dessa hits, and Rey Shamez rolls out of the ring wearily, and the ref follows her out of the ring to raise her arm )
RA: Here is your winner and advancing on to the next round…. REEEEYYYYYYYYY SHHHAAAAAAAAAMEEEEEEEEZZ!!!
Stew: Rey manages to come away at the very last second with that last ditch effort, but it was not for naught!
HYC: What a crazy match! These ladies didn’t hesitate to bring the toys out at all, and really both of these ladies are coming out worse for wear, but at least Rey is coming out with the W.
Cailin: Crazy thing is, Rey only gets a day to recover, and tomorrow night if she hopes to win this cup she’s got three more matches to win where that came from. The longer and most importantly the more violent your matches are, the more of a disadvantage you’re put at. I hope Rey realizes this.
Stew: An astute assessment by the EAW Specialists Champion who’s with us to call this event. Folks we’ll be right back.
( AD: “ShutEmDown” by Celldweller plays, and a Reckless Wiring 8 commercial plays featuring cyborg versions of each member of the Hexa-Gun on display, and Hexa-Gun highlights playing in the background with 1’s and 0’s flashing across the screen. The commercial soon comes to an end, with the quotes “Power Over The People” flashing on the screen. )
( Cut back to the arena )
RA: The next contest is a First Round match in the 2016 EAW Vixens Cup! It is set for one fall!
(“The Darkness” by Hardstyle begins to play as the crowd of the Air Canada Centre begins to boo loudly. The light slowly dims as a deep green light focuses on the stage. As the words begin to come up Silence slowly walks out, Veena Adams at her side, moving as if dancing like fluid before she stands rigid.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, accompanied to the ring by Veena Adams, from East St. Louis, Illinois……SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILENNNNNNNNNNNNCE!
Rex: One of the most devastating of all the Vixens participating in the tournament, the Duality Diva, the enigmatic and extremely dangerous Silence!
Stew-O: I don’t know about you guys but this is not one lady I ever want to come across in a dark alley or anywhere else. She’s got all the size, the skill and a vicious mean streak to match when she’s inspired by her darker personality.
HYC: I’m impressed with her but Veena Adams out here is a bit of a concern. Doesn’t she have a match later tonight, mang?
Cailin: Well the two of them have gotten a lot closer recently and recently have been involved in a long-running battle with Erica Ford and Silence’s opponent tonight, Azumi Goto.
(Silence takes off her mask and tosses it away, her eyes glaring towards the entrance ramp as she stands in the ring with Veena on the apron.)
(“Kagerou Days” by Wagakki Band starts to play as light dim down to single spotlight above the middle of entrance ramp. Azumi walks out holding a traditional Japanese fan in front of her face with Erica Ford standing behind her. By the time the song hits the twenty second mark. Azumi closes her fan and snaps her fingers as the lights come back on. As she makes her way to the ring she gives her fan to a little girl or teenager in the front row as Erica perches herself up on the top Turnbuckle, watching over Azumi to make sure there is no sneak attack.)
Ring Announcer: And her opponent, accompanied to the ring by Erica Ford, From Okinawa, Japan…. The “Queen of Submission” …. AZUUUUUMI…. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOTOOOOOOO!
Rex: This woman is no stranger to facing Silence, their last encounter ending with a loss for Azumi as she had to watch her partner get carried out of the arena a bloody mess.
Cailin: This is going to be pretty physical, hard-hitting. Azumi is going to try to use her submissions I’m sure and Silence will be imposing her will with her power.
Stew-O: Let’s not forget about the two tag partners outside the ring! They have a match later tonight and if the last few weeks are any indication they ain’t planning on sending each other love notes or a box of chocolates anytime soon!
(DING DING DING!)
Rex: Silence already running in trying to bullrush Azumi but the Japanese sensation sidesteps and starts landing shoot kicks to the stomach and leg! Azumi now landing a few forearm shots to the face but Silence shoves her away with a hand! Azumi goes in again but this time gets hit with a body avalanche and falls to the mat in a heap!
Stew-O: Silence is somebody that I think more of the people should take seriously in this tournament. She’s the biggest, arguably the strongest and let’s be real, she’s freakin’ nuts!
HYC: Silence is in total destruction mode tonight; she pulls Azumi up by the hair before just knocking her down with a short-arm clothesline! Veena Adams clapping in approval as she watches her partner with the early advantage!
Stew-O: This is going to be an early test of Azumi’s mettle. She has come a long way in a short time since she started teaming with Erica but this is singles competition now. No backup, no tagging in and out. You’re in there on your own. Silence pulling up Azumi and throwing her into the far corner as if she were a shot put! Azumi trying her best to cover up as Silence just starts throwing punches to the head, the gut, the chest, anyplace that she can make contact! The referee is trying to break them up but so far no luck! He tries to get in there and pull Silence out but she pushes him aside! The ref in her face warning her of a disqualification but here comes Azumi with a brutal chop to the chest! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER ONE! She’s trying to fight her way back into this match! A SPINNING BACKHAND STRIKE!
HYC: This broad ain’t even moving though! She’s still standing!
Rex: A STUNNER FROM AZUMI HAS SILENCE ROCKING! AZUMI BACK UP TO HER FEET, FLYING CLOTHESLINE FINALLY TAKES DOWN THE BIGGER WOMAN AND SHE ROLLS OUT TO THE FLOOR! Azumi not done though as she climbs up to the top turnbuckle. Veena over at Silence’s side trying to pull her up and get her back into the ring, but Azumi LEAPS OFF THE TURNBUCKLE! MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE RIGHT ON BOTH VEENA AND SILENCE!
Stew-O: How’s that for a little payback for what happened in their last match!?
HYC: The referee is giving them a little leeway after that one, I don’t think anybody wants to see a double-countout or something like that. In tournaments you want to see a decisive win, especially one as important as this tournament.
Rex: Azumi up to her feet and is trying to pull Silence up to her feet but Veena Adams is up and screaming at the official and then getting in Azumi’s face! Don’t turn your back, don’t turn your back on SILENCE!
Cailin: TOO LATE!
Rex: Azumi is grabbed by the arm and sent flying into the security railing barricade first! Veena taunting her as Silence starts to go to work with stomps as the referee is trying to implore them to get back into the ring…ERICA COMES OVER AND TACKLES VEENA TO THE GROUND! THEY’RE NOT GOING TO WAIT TO GET IT ON IN THEIR TOURNAMENT MATCH! THEY’RE FIGHTING RIGHT NOW! Security rushing down to separate the two of them!
HYC: Meanwhile the referee is fed up and starting his 10 count!
Stew-O: Azumi is trying to get up, pulling herself up by the barricade while Silence stands a few feet away. Silence building up a head of STEAM! BIG BODY SPLASH BUT SHE MISSES! SHE CAUGHT NOTHING BUT BARRICADE!
Rex: Azumi quickly slips behind Silence as the count continues…INVERTED DDT ONTO THE ARENA FLOOR! SILENCE MAY BE OUT!
Ref: THREE!!!……FOUR!!!!…. FIVE!!!!!!
HYC: Security finally has Veena and Erica separated, Erica screaming for Azumi to roll back into the ring and she does as the count continues!
Cailin: Silence is barely moving…I’m not sure if she’s going to make it!
Stew-O: She’s up on one knee but did that blow to the head knock her for a loop!?
Rex: Silence is moving towards the ring but she tumbles down to the arena floor, grabbing onto the ring apron trying to pull herself back into the ring!
Ref: NINE!!! TEN!!!!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
(The crowd erupts in cheers as the referee calls for the bell, a smiling Azumi getting her hand raised in the center of the ring as a furious Silence regains her balance on the outside and tries to get into the ring to continue battling, but is held back by Veena and security.)
RA: The winner of this match and advancing to the quarterfinals, AZUUUUUUUUMIIIIIII GOTO!!!
(“Kagerou Days” plays through the arena as Azumi and Erica celebrate Goto’s victory, Erica coming very close to brawling with Veena before Adams joins in with security to try to keep Silence out of the ring.)
Rex: Well one member of Shinsei Domei is in the Vixens Cup quarterfinals and it’s all because of some quick thinking by Azumi and a little luck! A tough break for Silence though and the outcome of this one may be considered a huge upset.
HYC: Well it’s hard to feel sorry for her or Veena considering all the dirty tricks these chicks have been tryin’ to pull. Serves her right if you ask me.
( Replays air for a minute of the several spots in the match, but focus on the ending where Silence is defeated by count out. The camera cuts back to the arena and the ring is cleared out as the competitors are being escorted out of the premises. )
(“Had Enough” by Breaking Benjamin blasts through the arena as a very determined looking Raven Lee makes her way to the ring, nearly belting a fan insulting her across the face as boos rain down over her.)
RA: This following contest is the third First Round match in the 2016 EAW Vixens Cup and is set for one fall! Introducing first, From Detroit, Michigan…RRRRRRRRRAVEN LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Stew: Well the action’s going to keep on going! It’s like we said earlier folks, this is going to be almost COMPLETELY action-based! And we get our third match going with probably one of EAW’s surliest competitors and one of the most rugged individuals around…, Raven Lee has a big opportunity to work her way back into championship contention!
Rex: She had a very respectable showing in the Empress of Elite last year and came very close to holding that Specialists Championship that our guest commentator is holding this very moment.
HYC:…. Dude, I don’t have a belt.
Cailin: I think he was talking about me, Chico.
(Raven warms up in the ring as Sheridan makes her way down to the ring, proudly waving a German flag as Slipknot’s “Surfacing” plays through the arena, a mixed but mostly positive reaction from the fans greeting her.)
Ring Announcer; And her opponent, from Munich, Germany…. SHERIDANNNNNNNNNNNNN MUUUULLLLEEERRRRR!
Rex: One of EAW’s rising young stars, the German sensation is looking to have a long campaign in the Vixens Cup and she has all the tools to do so: aggression, ability, a can-do attitude.
Cailin: Raven’s not someone you can just look past though; a pretty tough assignment I think in a single-elimination tournament.
(DING DING DING!)
Rex: Raven and Sheridan wasting little time as they hook up collar and elbow in the center of the ring, Raven forcing Sheridan back into the corner before Sheridan reverses things and has Raven pinned up against the ropes and we get a surprisingly clean break.
Stew-O: Was it just me, or did the fans actually cheer a little for Sheridan when she came out? I know we’re not in the US where Sheridan is not necessarily liked for her thinking about Americans, but I figured Canada may find her just as annoying.
Cailin: I think they choose to look at her skill instead of her attitude. Canada’s always had a profound respect for wrestling talent, even when the person’s personal views aren’t something people may agree with.
HYC: The fact that she’s hot helps….
Rex: Would you stop? Tie up again but Raven cuts Sheridan off with a knee to the midsection and then vicious knife-edge chop to the chest and a rake of the eyes! Raven in no mood to play nicely as she Irish whips Sheridan into the ropes and Sheridan counters with a Thesz Press! Muller hammering away with forearm shots as Raven is getting pummeled! For someone who talks about “pure wrestling” a lot she’s throwing some pretty heavy blows there! I guess when it gets down to it sometimes you have to do whatever to survive! Raven pulled up by Sheridan who lands a European uppercut and follows up with another. She goes behind and locks both arms into a chicken wing like position…TIGER SUPLEX EXECUTED PERFECTLY WITH A BRIDGE! THE REF IN POSITION!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! KICKOUT!
Cailin: There is some of that wrestling we were talking about!
HYC: Sheridan’s got to keep up the offense though! You don’t want to have Raven on the ropes and not finish her off. Many EAW Vixens have found out hard way about that!
Stew-O: She has Raven Lee up looking for a Russian, Err, German Legweep, but Raven hits her in the face with an elbow and then takes her down with a vicious clothesline! Raven Lee picks Sheridan up now and hits a backbreaker! Now she comes sprinting across the ropes and landing a picture perfect Kneedrop right across the face!
Rex: Raven goes looking for a cover but Sheridan kicks out before the referee can even administer a count and RAVEN WITH A BIG KICK TO THE BACK! That hard shoot kick rattled Sheridan, you can see it! Raven pulls Sheridan into a Piledriver position…. but Sheridan reverses it into a back body drop! That was close!
HYC: Sheridan with a dropkick now as Raven hops back to her feet, Sheridan springs off the ropes again as Raven is up to her feet she looks for a big boot and misses and Raven takes her down with a vicious clothesline! Raven pulls Sheridan up quickly and hits a belly to belly suplex! She goes for the cover again…
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!KICKOUT!
Rex: A near fall here as Raven looks up to the official with an annoyed look but he holds up two fingers and shakes his head. Raven looking irritated as she tries to pull Sheridan up and she does, Irish whip into the ropes… TILT O WHIRL BACK- WHAT!? SHERIDAN LANDED ON HER FEET AND HAS A GRIP OF RAVEN LEE’S ARM, CROSS ARMBREAKER! BEAUTIFUL COUNTER!
HYC: It’s not locked in yet; it’s not locked in yet! Raven clutching for all she’s worth to keep that arm from getting extended, Sheridan trying to pull those fingers apart and lock the hold in!
Cailin: If she’s caught here and that hold is locked in the center of the ring, she’s going to have to tap out and give this one up or have a broken arm! No way she can just will her way out of it!
Stew-O: I think Raven’s fingers are starting to lose their grip, Sheridan extending that arm now! CROSS ARMBREAKER LOCKED ON IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! AND RAVEN IMMEDIATELY TAPS OUT! SHE’S GOT NO CHOICE! THIS ONE IS OVER!
(DING DING DING!)
(“Surfacing” by Slipknot plays through the arena as Sheridan gets her hand raised, a frustrated Raven Lee sulking in the corner as she tends to her arm.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of this match by submission and advancing to the quarterfinals……SHERRRRRRRRRRRRRIDANNNNNNN MULLER!
Stew-O: That was a German Engineered victory, am I right guys?
HYC: I guess.
Rex: An impressive victory for the young German Vixen as she moves on to the quarterfinals with a submission victory over Raven Lee….and Cailin she seems to be admiring your Championship belt.
(Cailin remains silent as Sheridan grins in her direction from inside the ring, signaling to her waist and then towards the belt on Cailin’s shoulder.)
Sheridan: Jah….. Ich möchte, dass!
Rex: Is Sheridan indicating her title match of choice if she wins the tournament or is she out here trying to play mind games with the Specialists Champion?
Cailin: She’s got a long way to go to get to that Vixens Cup final but if she does win it, she should know that I have defended this belt proudly for months now. I defend it more often than any champion in EAW defends their title and nobody’s been able to beat me yet. Not even her.
Rex: That match you two had on Showdown was a brilliant bout, and a rematch would be one for the ages I’m sure, but for now we can only speculate! One thing we do know though is that Sheridan Muller moves on to the quarterfinal round tomorrow, still alive in the Vixens Cup!
( Camera fades backstage… Cloud Matsuda can be seen roaming through the halls with a look of determination on her face, but she is stopped by Max A. Million. )
Max A. Million: Cloud, can I get a word from you for a sec?
Cloud Matsuda: Absolutely.
Max: Cloud, we’re just moments away from your bout against Haruna in, what’s widely considered to be the most built up contest of this night. Certainly there’s a lot of personal feelings, anger, frustration, even jealousy behind this match… I just wanted to know where your head’s at, and what matters to you the most this evening. Is it getting your revenge on Haruna, or is it winning the Vixens Cup?
Cloud: I’ve certainly got an array of priorities on my list don’t I? But I’ve been waiting for this. I’ve been waiting for this night since King Of Elite, ever since Haruna SCREWED ME out ot the Vixens Championship that I busted my ass for! I did everything I could, I tried to make peace with her, won the Beat The Clock Challenge on my own, and I had Eris LeCava beat… but Haruna took it all away from me! She had nothing to gain from it, she did what she did out of spite, and I will NEVER forgive or forget that!
I just want this monkey off my back. I want to exorcise this demon. I need to get my hands on her… and not just by ambush, not just in some tag match, I need all her in all of her glory and in just a few short moments I’ve got that. That’s first priority to me. As for the rest of the Vixens Cup, I can deal with that later. I’ve been fighting my entire life, I’ve fought for everything, I was handed nothing. I’ll fight anyone who gets in my way, and quite honestly I have to thank Haruna for one thing… I’ve got to thank her for giving me this mentality. This “take no prisoners” mentality, I’ve got to thank her because she’s the reason for this! She taught me to never let anyone in between you and what you worked for, and I’m prepared to go through everybody.
Max: Thank you.
( Cloud walks off, leaving Max behind. )
( Camera fades away… we get a video package for Haruna Sakazaki vs. Cloud Matsuda, starting from their days as a tag team under the name of “Sexy Curry” where it covers their relationship both on and off screen, with friends of their speaking on how close they were and how much they enjoyed their relationship together. The package cuts to the fateful day of the EAW Awards Show where Sexy Curry faced Luzmala and Eris LeCava, and Luzmala had Haruna Sakazaki in her clutches while Cloud Matsuda retreated and frozen in fear, unable to help her partner, as Luzmala hit the “No Dios” on Haruna and putting her out of action for a month. It shows Cloud dedicating her matches, expressing her grief afterwards for her mistake, and feuding with Eris LeCava with Luzmala giving premonitions about Haruna never forgiving her, which fell on deaf ears. Package shows Haruna returning during Eris vs. Cloud, appearing to be on Cloud’s side until she turned her back on Cloud Matsuda, leading Eris to retain her title. Haruna is shown speaking out against Cloud Matsuda, saying how Cloud betrayed her, left her for dead, and Cloud is seen speaking out against Haruna for her betrayal at King of Elite. It shows Cloud Matsuda in Haruna Sakazaki’s family home, recapping when Cloud convinced Haruna’s family to speak out against her, causing Haruna to have a melt down in the ring. Finally it displays the close calls, the brawls and attacks Haruna and Cloud have dished out on each other, with hate-filled words spewed against each other, social media posts, and video package comes to a close soon after. )
( Cut back to the arena )
( DING! DING! DING! )
RA: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is a First Round Match in the 2016 EAW Vixens Cup!
(“Shoegazer” by Eir Aoi blasts through the arena as the lights go out except a dim red glow of thousands of nightsticks the fans are holding up as Haruna makes her way to the ring in all black, the crowd mostly cheering her arrival.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Akihabara, Japan….” The Pride of the Vixens Division” …HARRRRRRRRRRRRUNAAAAAAAAAAAA SAKAZAAAAAAAAKI!!!
HYC: Here’s someone that Cailin knows quite well, the woman that she beat for the Specialists Championship!
Rex: That may be the least complex portion of their relationship, frankly. In fact, the goings-on between the two participants of this match and the Specialists Champion seem a little better suited for Days of Our Lives than EAW programming.
Cailin: This is; I have to admit the first round match that I’ve been wanting to see most of all.
Stew-O: All the other stuff aside, people seem to finally be realizing how dangerous this woman is. She’s almost been Vixens Champion on several occasions and was the first Specialists Champion. Cloud City may fall right out of the sky tonight!
(“Robot Bosses/Hedgehog Fodder” blasts through the arena as the crowd cheers even louder for the arriving Cloud Matsuda. Cloud comes running out on to the stage, stopping just before the ramp. Wearing a pair of goggles above her eyes, Cloud eyes the crowd for a moment before racing to the ring. She slides in and immediately climbs the turnbuckle, throwing her hands into the air. Eager fans show their support by throwing multi-colored streamers into the ring. Cloud backflips off the top turnbuckle and turns to stand face to face with Haruna as the streams are cleaned up.)
Ring Announcer: And her opponent, from Tokyo, Japan…the SKY PRINCESS…. CLOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUD MATSUUUUUUUDAAAAAAA!!!
Rex: This rivalry has done nothing but build over the last few weeks and once the brackets were announced a lot of people had this one circled as one of the best matches to watch in perhaps the whole tournament. It’s time to see if it lives up to the billing!
(DING DING DING!)
Rex: The crowd is on their feet for this one as the two competitors stand there staring into each other eyes, former tag team partners, traveling buddies, even lovers. So much emotion here but as of now it hasn’t exploded to blows just yet. Dueling chants between of “HA-RU-NA!” and “LETS GO CLOUD!” are thundering through the Air Canada Centre! Haruna makes the first move giving Cloud a shove…Cloud responds with a slap to the face! Haruna goes in for a collar and elbow and the two women push each other around the ring, jockeying for position until Cloud forces Haruna back into the ropes!
Stew-O: The referee calling for a clean break and it’s gonna be pretty hard for him to get one at this rate! Haruna lets go and starts trying to smack Cloud in the face and even lands a slap or two in, but Cloud responds with a punch square in the jaw and Cloud pushes the official aside, she better be careful with that!
Rex: Irish whip into the ropes by Cloud and she jumps and catches Haruna square in the jaw with a roundhouse kick and Sakazaki has no choice but to roll out of the ring to cut off the offense! Cloud is urging the crowd to get louder as Haruna takes the smart veteran route and settles herself back down.
HYC: All kidding aside, mang, let’s forget about all the extracurricular stuff and the fact that you’re Cloud’s partner, Cailin. Tell us right now who you think has an advantage and why?
Cailin: I think if this match is wrestled at a slower, more technical pace, I think it favors Haruna heavily. That’s her game. If it turns into a more aerial, fast-paced match, it goes to Cloud. I think that’s why you saw Haruna split for a second.
Rex: The referee urging Haruna back into the ring, not bothering with a count there and this match continues. The two look for another tie up before Haruna pulls back and holds up her hand looking for a test of strength. Cloud hesitant but locks up one hand and then the other goes up- but Haruna lands a kick to the gut!
Haruna: (no mic) BAKA!
Stew-O: And Haruna with a vicious blow to the back of the head, a nasty forearm shot on the already keeled over Cloud. PALM STRIKE RIGHT TO THE FACE AS CLOUD RAISES UP, and then a spinning backfist for good measure to knock her down! Here’s that punishing pace that Cailin was just talking about!
Rex: Indeed, Stew-O. Cloud has been slowed down here in the early going as Haruna pulls her up to the standing position a bit, arm wringer by Haruna…then more vicious shoot kicks! First to the leg and now just teeing off on the ribs of Matsuda! And the pulls her in for a short-arm clothesline for good measure! Cloud clutching her ribs as she drops to one knee….HARUNA HITS A SHINING WIZARD! Her knee just bounced right off Cloud’s left temple! Could we have a winner quickly here! Lateral press….
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! KICKOUT!
HYC: That was close!
Stew-O: Now we have Haruna pulling both of Cloud’s Arms behind her back, a modified bow and arrow so to speak, Cloud you can hear screaming in pain! Haruna wrenching those arms, driving her knee right there in the upper back. Don’t know if that’ll make your liver quiver but it will damn sure make your back crack!
Rex: For some reason though Haruna lets go of the hold. I’m not sure what she’s thinking here. She could be going for a submission, but she starts brushing her boot on the side of the head instead. Taunting Cloud to get up. CLOUD FIRING A SHOT TO THE MIDSECTION BUT HARUNA IS UNFAZED AND HITS HER WITH A HEADBUTT! This is the more aggressive Haruna we’ve been seeing much more of since her return. She’s bound and determined to not only beat Cloud but punish her as well. Haruna pulling Cloud up and setting her up for what looks like maybe a powerbomb….NO…SHE JUMPS AND HITS A BEAUTIFUL SUNSET FLIP PILEDRIVER! CLOUD’S HEAD JUST SPIKED OFF THE CANVAS AND THIS ONE COULD BE OVER! HARUNA HOOKS THE LEG AGAIN!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! KICKOUT!!!
(Haruna slaps the mat in frustration before grabbing the ref of the collar of the shirt.)
Haruna: OI! IS IT HARD FOR YOU TO COUNT TO THREE!?
Cailin: Come on, Cloud!
Rex: Haruna frustrated but she has to maintain her focus! She pulls up Cloud…DANCE FLOOR SHREDDER! THAT PUNCH AND SLAP COMBO! SHE GOES FOR GATE OF INNER LIGHT….NO! CLOUD KICKER! PELE KICK FROM CLOUD STUNS HARUNA! Cloud stumbling up to her feet after that desperation move…. HANDSPRING CUTTER! HER TRIBUTE TO HER TAG PARTNER HAS HARUNA LAID OUT ON THE CANVAS!
Stew-O: Cloud wrapping her arms around Haruna’s waist…. what is she planning here…She’s pulling her up from the canvas! LOOK AT THE STRENGTH…. DEADLIFT POWERBOMB! PLANTS IT!!! Cloud showing off her strength and now she’s up on the top turnbuckle almost immediately afterward…. SHOOTING STAR PRESS! CLOUD SHOWING OFF THAT VAUNTED AERIAL ATTACK! SHE HOOKS THE LEG!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THRE- KICKOUT!!!
Rex: How in the hell did Haruna survive that onslaught!? You almost NEVER see someone kick out of a Shooting Star Press, it’s one of the most effective moves in wrestling history, but Haruna sure did just now! Cloud looking up in disbelief at the referee but he’s gesturing that Haruna barely got the shoulder up. What can she do to put away Haruna? She pulls Haruna up to her feet by the hair…SAITO SUPLEX FOLLOWS. Haruna is in some serious trouble now after dominating most of the beginning of this matchup. Cloud keeping her focus as she locks in an STF, STF IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! HARUNA IS IN DEEP TROUBLE!
HYC: She’s got nowhere to go and Cloud has that hold locked in tight. That can shred a knee up really quick if Haruna refuses to submit!
Stew-O: Look at Haruna though…she’s forcing her upper body up with her arms and now is trying to crawl towards the ropes, she’s having to pull her body AND Cloud’s towards the ropes! Cloud clenching back as hard as she can, trying to end this with a submission victory! Haruna is so close now, about half a foot away! Cloud is wrenching back with everything she has trying to finish her off…Haruna’s hand is in the air…she may tap out here and….AND…. SHE MANAGES TO GET TO THE ROPES! Haruna clinging onto the bottom rope as Cloud has to immediately break the hold! This has been a wild one so far and we continue! Cloud is up on her feet in the center of the ring and Haruna is slowly up to her feet now, they step towards each other and face off just as they did when this match started.
Rex: Haruna with a forearm blow right to the face of Cloud! Cloud responds with one of her own! And now the two of them are just in the ring exchanging forearm blows to the face! Is it any surprise that a tournament about pride and fighting spirit, two cores of Puroresu are on display by two Japanese Vixens! NEITHER ONE GIVING AN INCH AS THEY JUST CONTINUE TRADING BLOWS TO THE FACE! HARUNA! CLOUD! HARUNA! CLOUD! HARUNA! CLOUD…HARUNA LANDS ONE THAT FINALLY HAS CLOUD STAGGERED! THEN ANOTHER ONE! AND NOW THE GATE OF LIGHT PUNCH RIGHT TO THE MIDSECTION!
Cailin: That’s her set up for “Around the World” ….
Stew-O: MARAWU SEKAI! AROUND THE DAMN WORLD CONNECTS! CLOUD IS OUT AND YOU CAN TURN OUT THE LIGHTS! THIS PARTY IS OVER! HARUNA HOOKS THE LEG!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE–
HYC: WAIT, NO!! CLOUD GOT A SHOULDER UP!? HOW!?
Rex: I don’t believe what we are witnessing here! Haruna is stunned! She thought this match was over and I think everyone in the arena did too! Haruna mounting Cloud and throwing some hard punches and elbow strikes! I guess the logic is if she can’t pick up the pinfall, pick up the KO!
HYC: Cloud is defending herself though, she’s somehow withstanding all of this!
Stew-O: Haruna pulling Cloud up again to go for Around the World again but Cloud counters it into a spinning sidewalk slam! How the hell she managed to find the strength for that I’ll never know! Cloud slowly getting to her feet as is Haruna…. Cloud gets Haruna into position for maybe a Northern Lights Suplex perhaps? NO…AURORA BOREALIS! THAT NORTHERN LIGHTS DRIVER SHOULD DO IT! LATERAL PRESS!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! KICKOUT!
Rex: And now it’s Cloud Matsuda’s turn to look stunned and confused here! This first round contest has lived up to all the billing so far and we wouldn’t have it any other way! All the stops being pulled out! Cloud pulling up Haruna now and maybe it’s time for Haru to visit Cloud City…. BUT HARUNA SLAMS HER HEAD BACK IN A DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO BREAK THE HOLD AND SHE DOES! AND THEN SHE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!
Cailin: Regardless of who wins this has been a great match. I’m pulling for Cloud obviously but Haruna’s shown what she’s made of today too. I’m very much impressed. Both of them are out in the middle of the ring! The ref’s tryin to see if either of them can get up…he may have to count them both down here!
Rex: Neither young lady moving here and the count continues! IF this ends in a double KO, both of them are done! Haruna is starting to move a bit and is clinging to the ropes to try to pull herself up! Cloud is motionless!
Ref: FOUR! FIVE!!……SIX!!!
Stew-O: Cloud is moving and she rolls onto her back…. can she get up! HARUNA’S ALMOST TO HER FEET!
Ref: SEVEN…………. EIGHT!…………NINE!
Rex: Haruna’s up to her feet…and CLOUD KIPS UP! SHE KIPS UP AND SHE’S FEELING A SURGE OF ENERGY! HARUNA COMES IN LOOKING FOR A MAFIA KICK BUT CLOUD SIDESTEPS IT AND LANDS A SHOOT KICK OF HER OWN RIGHT TO THE CHEST! AND ANOTHER! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND A JUMPING ROUNDHOUSE SENDS HARUNA DOWN TO THE CANVAS!
Cailin: What’s this!?
(The camera shifts momentarily to a fan trying to get into the ring but being chased around the ring, the referee monitoring the situation.)
HYC: MUST BE ONE OF THESE CANADIAN COOKS (ROLL). CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE ACTUALLY WANT TO MOVE HERE!
Stew-O: Ladies and gentlemen we apologize for that. Certain things happen on live TV. Security is trying to apprehend this young woman but she’s quite slippery. We’ll stay focused on the match. Haruna is up to her feet as is Cloud…. Cloud getting the arms locked this time……. CLOUD CITY! THIS MATCH SHOULD BE OVER! ONE.TWO…THREE…YOU CAN COUNT ALL DAY! WHY IS THE REFEREE KEEPING HIS EYE ON THIS, THIS FAN…? Cloud has to eventually let go of the bridge and she is exasperated, watching Security chase this woman around!
Rex; Wait a second…THAT’S JADE KNIGHT! A FRIEND OF HARUNA’S AND HER FORMER TAG PARTNER! WHAT THE HELL IS SHE DOING HERE?
Cailin: Either way he’s not paying attention to what’s going on in the ring. Haruna is crawling over to where it looks like Jade had dropped a tablet or something off?
Stew-O: Whatever that little tablet is she’s grinding it up in her hand…. she turns around and throws that powder right into Cloud’s eyes!
HYC: AND THE REF DOESN’T SEE A DAMN THING! GREAT WRESTLING HARUNA, GREAT WRESTLING!
Rex: HOW THE HELL CAN YOU CALL THIS WRESTLING…. THE SECURITY TEAM HAS FINALLY PINNED DOWN JADE ON THE OUTSIDE…BUT HARUNA HAS CLOUD UP IN THE AIR IN THE ARGENTINE BACKBREAKER POSITION……SPINNING SPINEBUSTER! REQUIEM!
Cailin: This isn’t right…. this is NOT right!
HYC: Who gives a damn if it’s right!? Cloud is out! You can count to a 100!
Rex: Haruna hooks the leg….
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(DING DING DING!)
(The crowd boos heavily as Haruna slides quickly out of the ring, Cailin running in to check on Cloud, explaining that something was thrown in her eyes, the referee shaking his head and saying he saw nothing.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of this contest and advancing to the quarterfinals, HAAAARRUUNNAAAAA SAKKAAAAAAZAKIIIIII!!!!
(“Shoegazer” by Eir Aoi plays through the Air Canada Centre as Haruna glares into the ring at Cailin and the fallen Cloud, a satisfied smile on her face.)
Rex: I really don’t know what to say about this. We just had maybe the best match of the tournament so far RUINED by dirty cheating tactics from Haruna. I’m starting to suspect that this was all a plan from the beginning.
Stew-O: As disgusted as you are, as Cailin is and however Chico here feels about it, Haruna survived and advanced. The referee didn’t’ see anything and all he can go by is what he saw happen: Haruna putting away Cloud Matsuda with the Requiem! The Vixen Cups returns after a word from our sponsors!
( COMMERCIAL BREAK )
( Camera cuts backstage, and it shows Max A. Million entering a private lockerroom after knocking on the door a few times. Max enters the room… and the room is dimly lit, and he spots Madison Kaline sitting by herself on a bench, looking at the floor, in a trance. )
Max: Maddie?… Is it okay if I had a word with you?
( Max gets no response, she remains stoic, staring blankly at the ground in front of her, avoiding any eye contact or sudden movement. )
Max: Maddie… can I ask what’s on your mind?
Madison Kaline: … I’m just thinking about all of the things I’m going to do to Tarah Nova.
Max: … Can I just ask, what would it mean to you to put this rivalry to a rest tonight?
( Madison doesn’t respond )
Max: … Maddie? Perhaps can I get your thoughts on the other Vixens competing tonight? How far do you plan on going in this tournament?
( Madison doesn’t respond )
Max: Is there anything else on your mind that you’d like to share?
Madison: I think you should go.
Max: Yes mamn.
( Max quickly leaves the room, leaving behind Madison to sit in her own thoughts until the scene fades elsewhere. )
( Recap airs showing the results of the night so far with brief highlights: Rey Shamez scored a pinfall over Brody Sparks following a brutal match by hitting the Silent Treatment for the win. Azumi Goto picked up her victory over Silence via count out. Sheridan Muller defeated Raven Lee by forcing her to submit, and Haruna Sakazaki managed to defeat Cloud Matsuda by interference of Jade Knight. )
( Cut back to the arena )
( DING! DING! DING! )
RA: This upcoming match is the fifth first round bout in the 2016 EAW VIXENS CUP TOURNAMENT!
( “Sellouts” by Breathe Carolina hits and Cameron Ella Ava makes her way down the ramp )
RA: Introducing first… from Los Angeles, California… CAMERROOON EEELLLAAA AAAVAAA!!!
Rex: Well now that the chaos has been cleared up, we’re underway with yet another MAJOR match underway in what I think is safe to officially dub as the “Grudge round”, where pretty much all of the grudge matches in the Vixens division are taking place. We just saw one hectic grudge match come and go, and we’ve got another bout that’s got a bit of heat behind it.
Stew: Certainly a competitive rivalry between the Empress of Elite and this young woman, Cameron Ella Ava, who casts a great shadow over this tournament and the others in it. She comes in as a four time Vixen of the year, multiple time Vixens Champion, with many illustrious victories under her belt. You just know Cameron would like nothing more than to come away with one of the few prizes she has yet to win in this division.
( “Formation” by Beyonce hits… The crowd comes to their feet as Aria Jaxon makes her entrance, with a shot of Cameron Ella Ava staring her down aggressively )
RA: Her opponent…. also from Los Angeles, California… she is the EMPRESS OF ELITE, ARRIIIIIAAAAAA JAAAXXXOOOOOONNNN!!!
HYC: And these two mamacitas from the City of Angels have somethin’ to prove! Cameron would love nothing more than to take back the win from Aria at Reasonable Doubt in what was considered by many to be an upset, and Aria would love nothing more than to hammer it home that she’s the real by defeating Cam two times in a row and going on to win the Vixens Cup!
Rex: What a statement it would be if she were able to pick up an accolade like that.
Cailin: I think this will be an interesting one to see.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: The two ladies close in on each other, both delivering some heavy smack talk, both getting into each others faces… and CAM MUSHES THE FACE OF ARIA! Complete disrespect by Cam, and Aria comes back at her with a forearm! Forearm from Cam! Forearm by Aria! Cam! Aria! Both ladies simultaneously sending forearm shots — but Cam cuts her off with the knee! Knee to the midsection, and a KICK TO THE CHEST! THRUST KICK TO THE CHEST OF A STANDING ARIA! Aria catches the heel however and hits an INNER THIGH ROUNDHOUSE! Cam’s limping, LOUD OBLIQUE KICK BY ARIA! Cam’s hurt, and Aria sends Cam into the ropes, rebound off the ropes, SPINNING REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE BY ARIA JAXON TO TAKE HER DOWN! LATERAL PRESS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!
Rex: KICK OUT! Cam’s holding her right leg, and is dragging herself back up after those brutal kicks by Aria. Cameron’s back up and Aria comes out of the gate for a BIG BOOT! Cam spins out of it, and goes for a roll up from behind! But Aria rolls through the roll up as the ref slides to the mat and hits a LEGDROP TO THE BACK OF CAM’S HEAD! Aria scrambles over her opponent, but Cameron Ella Ava quickly rolls out of the ring to save face! Aria’s on the go now, running off the ropes and coming across the ring for a BASEBALL SLIDE! But Cameron averts that and drags Aria out of the ring, and comes back with a CORKSCREW EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! Aria’s dazed, and Cam takes Aria across ringside with a MASSIVE IRISH WHIP, SENDING ARIA’S BODY SMACKING INTO THE BARRICADE!!!
HYC: YOUCH! Ms. Jaxon takes a hard hit into the protective wall, and Cam tries shaking off some of that pain in her legs, that was a helluva impact still! The ref’s starting his count, but it don’t mean much cause’ Cameron’s got Aria by the roots, snatching her by the edges and sending her back into the ring. Cam follows her in, hops over Aria, runs the ropes and comes back with a LOW DROPKICK TO THE RIBS!! And before Aria can roll out of the ring, Cam drags her away from the ropes for the cover!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE! TWWWWWW!
Stew: KICK OUT.
Cailin: Cameron’s playing it smart now, snapping in a side headlock, I’ll give Cam credit, bad attitude aside she makes a strong case at being the greatest of all time. I have as much respect for her as any other Vixen in the books, there’s just no one who’s been able to do it like her and she is EASILY a favorite to win the Vixens Cup.
Stew: High praises by the EAW Specialists Champion Cailin Dillon, and Aria Jaxon is fighting her way to her feet, trying to find some leverage as Cam’s got a headlock synched in tight. Cam may be a favorite, but there’s just one problem, she’s facing ANOTHER favorite in the first round! The two ladies are up to their feet, but Cameron decides to switch directions and hit a SNAP SUPLEX! Cam rolls back up to her feet and is going for the second consecutive vertical suplex… but ARIA TURNS IT AROUND, AND BACKS INTO THE CORNER TO HIT A VERTICAL SUPLEX INTO THE CORNER ON CAMERON! Aria turns it around with that surge, and Cam’s laying upside down in the corner racked with pain! Aria rushes up to her feet, holding her back and sprints across the ring to the far side away from Cameron… and SHE SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING FOR THE CORKSCREW CROSSBODY INTO THE CORNER!!!! SHE GOT IT!!! And Cam rolls out of the ring again, dropping to the bottom of the ramp and working her way back up as Aria returns to her feet as well, runs the ropes and DIIIIVES THROUGH THE ROPES WITH A BEAUTIFUL SUICIDE DIVE! BOTH LADIES BODIES GO CRASHING ON THE RAMP, BUT THIS CROWD COULD NOT BE ANY MORE PLEASED!
Cailin: I LOVE the fighting spirit in Aria! She is a risktaker, she’s ballsy, she was a pleasure to work with against Hexa-Gun and it’s because she’s practically fearless!
Rex: Absolutely! Aria sits up, beating her chest to get the crowd on her side and eventually drags Cameron up after just being turned inside out by that suicide dive! But notice, Aria seems to be favoring that left arm, there may have been a bit of an awkward landing off that suicide dive!
Stew: I noticed it as well, Rex. It could be a minor tweak, it could be worse, but we’ll have to see for ourselves. Nevertheless Aria pulls Cameron back up, but appears to have a hard time doing it… Aria’s looking to take Cam back to her feet as the ref begins his count, and Aria looks to send Cam into the ring — but CAM COUNTERS DRIVING ARIA RIBS FIRST INTO THE APRON.
Stew: NOW CAM HOOKS ARIA FROM BEHIND AND SENDS HER CRASHING SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL RINGPOST! NO! Aria stops the collision with her boot, sends back a right elbow, and Cam goes backing away to retreat just for Aria to come after her with a CLOTHESLINE! Cam ducks… and FROM BEHIND HITS A SIT-OUT REVERSE BACK SUPLEX, AND ARIA LANDS RIGHT ON THE LEFT ARM! ARIA’S ROLLING AROUND HOLDING THAT ARM AGAIN, AND THAT LOOKS LIKE A RED FLAG TO ME!
Ref: FOUR! …. FIVE!
HYC: Cam’s rolling in the ring and rolls back out through the other side of the turnbuckle to create more time, and I think you’re right Stew, something’s definitely up. Cam comes back over to Aria who’s on her knees and Cam hits a MASSIVE SHOOT KICK TO THE LEFT SHOULDER! AND CAM STOMPS REPEATEDLY ON THAT LEFT ARM, AND STANDS ON IT PRESSING ALL HER BODYWEIGHT RIGHT ON IT, FORCING YELLS OF PAIN OUT OF ARIA JAXON! Cam steps off, and Aria gets up to her feet and retreats back into the ring, favoring her left arm even more now… and CAM SLIDES INTO THE RING SLOWLY, BIDING HER TIME WHILE ARIA DRAGS HERSELF BACK UP… THE REF CHECKS UP ON HER, AND CAM GOES FOR IT!!! KNOCK BITCHES OUT!!! RUNNING FOREARM WITH AUTHORITY, UPSIDE THE BACK OF ARIA’S HEAD!! THAT SHOULD DO IT, HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THRRRR-
Rex: KICK OUT BY ARIA! Cameron looks frustrated that that didn’t put her away, she bangs her hands on the mat and scowls at her opponent… Aria’s trying to drag herself back up again, but Cam beats her to the punch and drives her into the corner just to send repeated shoulder thrusts! Aria’s trying to fight back, battering fists into the spine of the four time Vixen of the Year, but Cam responds with a HUGE UPPERCUT!!! ARIA’S SHOCKED BY HOW HARD THAT WAS, AND CAM GRABS HER BY THE HEAD — HUUUUUGE SLAP ACROSS THE FACE BY ARIA!!! WOW!!! CAMERON IS STUNNED! Cam backs away holding her face in shock.. and she SPRINTS BACK OVER TO ARIA! ARIA COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP OVER THE TURNBUCKLE, but Cam lands right on the apron! Now Aria climbs up the turnbuckle behind her… she might be attempting a deadlift vertical suplex! But LOOK AT THIS, CAMERON RAKES THE EYE! ARIA’S DOUBLED OVER, HOLDING HER EYES, AND FROM THE APRON CAMERON HITS A SPRINGBOARD GODDESS’ TOUCH!!! BUT SHE STRATEGICALLY HITS IT ON THAT INJURED LEFT ARM! THAT SENDS ARIA OFF THE TOP ROPE, CRASHING TO THE CANVAS, ROLLING AROUND IN A WORLD OF PAIN CLUTCHING THAT HURT ARM, AND CAM SLIDES IN FOR THE SPOILS! THERE’S THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
HYC: NO! ARIA’S GOT A FOOT DRAPED OVER THE BOTTOM ROPE, THE REF WAIVES THE CALL! CAMERON IS IRATE! SHE’S UTTERLY FURIOUS, AND JUST AS SHE TRIES TO DRAG ARIA CLOSER IN, ARIA BAILS THE RING!
Stew: VERY wise decision by Aria Jaxon, but ever since that suicide dive the complexion of this match has changed! Aria has been hit with two CRITICAL blows and is on sheer survival mode! Cameron is spending a lot of time sulking over the referee’s call, but Aria’s counting on every second just to bring some feeling back into that right arm! Cam rolls out of the ring, bringing these two ladies right in front of us, and Cameron drags Aria right in front of our table while the ref demands that she brings Aria back into the ring… Cameron instead BASHES ARIA FACE FIRST INTO OUR TABLE! AND SHE DRIVES HER FACE INTO THE DESK AGAIN! AND A THIRD TIME! A FOURTH TIME! Aria’s hardly even able to defend herself! Cam now rolls Aria onto the table, and climbs up the desk literally right in front of us… and OHHH MY!!! SHE’S GOT THE FULL NELSON! CAMERON IS LOOKING FOR PERHAPS A TIGER SUPLEX RIGHT OFF THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!!! THIS WILL END THE MATCH RIGHT HERE! THIS WILL END THE MATCH RIGHT HERE!
Rex: NOOOOO! ARIA COUNTERS IN MID AIR WITH THE STANDING SHIRANUI INTO THE BACKSTABBER OFF THE ANNOUNCE DESK!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOA!!! THE PINKPRINT IS HIT RIGHT OFF OF THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!!
HYC: HOW IN THE HELL DID ARIA MANAGE TO DO THAT!?
Stew: AN ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE COUNTER FOR ARIA JAXON, TO BACKFLIP OVER HER OPPONENT WITH THE SHIRANUI BACKSTABBER OFF OF SUCH A HEIGHT! CAMERON’S BACK MUST BE IN SHAMBLES! AND BOTH LADIES ARE DOWN!
( Replays air of Aria’s counter, and we get back to the official beginning his count. )
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE!
Rex: The official’s count is underway, and Aria is desperately trying to muster up just enough to get up to a vertical base.
Ref: FOUR! FIVE!
Rex: Aria’s leaned on the apron, and Cameron is STILL laid out!!!
Ref: SIX! SEVEN!
HYC: ARIA MAKES IT INTO THE RING, AND CAMERON’S ON HER SIDE, STILL FAR FROM UP!
HYC: CAM’S SITTING UP!
Ref: NINE! …. TE–
Stew: CAM WITH A SURGE, SPRINTS TO HER FEET AND SLIDES UNDER THE ROPES TO ENTER THE RING! THAT WAS A CLOSE ONE! Cam is laying on the canvas completely spent, and is using the turnbuckle as her support now, hoping to pull herself up to a vertical base. Aria’s got a different plan though, she’s trying to literally beat feeling into her left arm, but she’s got a second wind coming and these fans can just feel it! Cam’s up… and ARIA SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING, HAND-SPRINGS WITH ONE GOOD ARM, AND HITS THE BEAUTY MARK INTO THE CORNERED CAMERON ELLA AVA! HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW SMASH! CAM STUMBLES OUT OF THE CORNER, AND ARIA HITS A TRIANGLE SPRINGBOARD BULLDOG FROM THE CORNER! HOLLYWOOD HANGOVER HITS ITS MARK, AND ARIA WITH ONE GOOD ARM HOOKS THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOOOONE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Rex: KICK OUT BY CAM! AND ARIA RUSHES UP TO HER FEET AGAIN, HYPING UP THIS CAPACITY CROWD, AND IS POISED! SHE’S READY! WAITING FOR CAM GET INTO POSITION… CAM’S DRAGGING HERSELF UP TO HER KNEES, LOOKING OUT OF IT, LOOKING LIKE SHE’S RIPE FOR THE SLAUGHTER… AND ARIA DRAGS HER UP! 187!!!! REVERSE STO!!!!!!!!! THAT’S IT!!!!!! NO! CAM BATTERS PUNCHES INTO THE SIDE OF ARIA’S HEAD, AND WRENCHES HER LEFT ARM TO HIT THE REVERSE ARMBREAKER! ARIA IS BESIDES HERSELF IN PAIN, THAT ARM COULD HAVE FREAKING SNAPPED! THAT ARM MAY BE BROKEN! AND CAM SNAPS IN THE BITCH’S WAY OUT! SCISSORED ARMBAR!!!! AND CAM BASHES THE HEEL INTO THE SIDE OF ARIA’S HEAD WHILE YANKING THE ARM BACK ALL THE WAY!!! ARIA’S GOT TWO CHOICES, AND ARIA HAS TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE! TAP OR SNAP! CAM REARS BACK EVEN MOOOOOOORE! AND ARIA GIVES IN! THAT’S IT!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Sellouts” by Breathe Carolina hits as Aria rolls away clutching her arm, and Cameron Ella Ava sits up, wiping her lips and gets her arm raised by the official )
RA: Here is your winner BY SUBMISSION and advancing into the quarterfinals… CAMEROOOOON ELLAAAAAAAA AVAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Rex: A VALIDATING victory for Cameron Ella Ava! You can see it in her face, she moved the meter with that one.
Stew: A tragic flaw by Aria Jaxon leads to a capitalized victory on behalf of Cameron Ella Ava. Aria had things going, but really after tweaking that arm, a bullseye was painted right on the arm and Cam would have been remiss not to go for it.
Cailin: Yeah. Aria fought and fought and fought, it was one hell of a match, but the writing was on the wall with that one at the end. Aria really had no other option, either submit or jeopardize her career, over what? Smart call in my opinion.
( Cameron is weary, but trash talking while Aria’s still recovering from what could be an injury. Cam leaves the ring after getting her fill of gloating. )
HYC: And arguably the greatest Vixen ever proceeds to the next round in the EAW Vixens Cup! A statement has been made, that’s for sure!
( Scene transitions elsewhere… to Tarah Nova in a lockerroom of her own, unleashing punches and elbows onto a heavybag in front of her while Mr. DEDEDE is sitting by dressed in street clothes with the Answers World Championship sitting next to him, as he watches Tarah unleash her strikes. )
Mr. DEDEDE: You’ve been going at this for a while, Tare. You may want to take it easy.
( Tarah doesn’t respond )
DDD: Seriously, no use tiring yourself out. Besides, it’s not like you’ll win tournament anyway.
( Tarah stops )
Tarah Nova: What was that?
DDD: Well, I’m just saying. Even if you beat Maddie, you’re probably not gonna go all the way. I wouldn’t be shocked if you’re out by the semi-finals.
Tarah: What the (CENSORED) did you just say?
( A smile grows on DDD’s face, and Tarah approaches him which prompts him to stand up. )
DDD: You’ve been going about this the wrong way this whole time. You want to know what your problem is? You’ve been thinking too much. You haven’t been able to let go. You’re just too concerned about every moving part around you, you’re not not as focused of an in ring competitor anymore. Just face it, you’re distracted. You’re no longer the Vixens Killer, you’re no longer the woman who defeated the ENTIRE Vixens Division in one match. You’re no longer the unstoppable, undisputed champion of the division. You’re a watered down version of that. I hate to say that, but it’s true.
DDD: You know, come to think of it ever since you split it off with Zach you’ve gotten kind of soft. This might actually be my fault… Yeah, maybe all that aggression came from having to (CENSORED) Zach. I mean there’s NO WAY he was hitting it right. Maybe you’re one of those fighters that are better when you’re sexually frustrated (hmm). Maybe I need to cut back on all of that good dick I’m giving y–
( Tarah grabs DEDEDE by his groin. )
Tarah: You want to say that again!?
DDD: I like where this is going. You want to pre-game, huh?? (HELLO)
( Tarah tightens her grip )
DDD: OKAY, THAT HURTS.
Tarah: Listen and listen good, motherf*cker. I don’t know where this is coming from all of a sudden, but if you think I’m here to be “Leader of the Vixens”, you’re sorely mistaken, you got that!?
( Tarah lets go, forcing DDD to take a seat, holding his groin with a slight smirk on his face )
Tarah: You may not be too familiar with this side of me, but you’re going to get acquainted. I’m going to leave buckets of Maddie’s blood all over the arena, I will heave her with nothing left, do you understand me!?
DDD: Yes babe.
Tarah: Don’t you EVER doubt me! By the time I’m through you’re going to be begging me to stop! You’ll have to tear me from her lifeless body to get me to stop! I’ll CRUSH her! I’ll break every bone in her body if I have to, you got that!
DDD: I got it.
Tarah: Tonight I’m not leading any Vixen anywhere unless it’s to their demise. Tonight I am the Vixens Killer. I’m going to make every single last Vixen’s nightmares come true! And you’re going to watch it. And another thing, not if, but WHEN I win that Vixen’s cup, when we get back to the hotel, I’m going to hate-(CENSORED) the (CENSORED) out of you. (nod)
( Tarah walks off, leaving a stunned Mr. DEDEDE )
DDD: :whew: !!!!
( Camera opens back up to the Air Canada Centre, and “Damage” by Fit For Rivals plays in the background as Alexis Diemos is in the ring, warming up with The Sanatorium in it’s entirety surrounding her. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
RA: This following match is a first round bout in the 2016 EAW VIXENS CUP TOURNAMENT. In the ring, accompanied by the Sanatorium, from Dublin, Ireland… AAALLEXIIIISS DIIIEMOOOOS!!!!
( Camera shows Angela Salveti in the other corner, warming up as well )
RA: And her opponent in the corner to my left, from Detroit, Michigan… ANGEELAAA SALEVETI!!!
( The music dies down, the RA exits the ring, Eclipse Diemos leads the rest of The Sanatorium out of the ring, and the ref calls for the bell. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rex: The Vixens Cup tournament continues with two polar opposites yet two sleepers, possibly even underdogs when pertaining to the name value of others in the brackets. Both ladies however have the equal opportunity to go on to the Vixen’s Cup finals tomorrow night and assert themselves over the entire Vixens Division! Both ladies lock up… and Alexis appears to have the power advantage from the get go, forcing Angela into the corner as the ref attempts to create space… but there’s a kick to the gut by Alexis, grabs her by the hair, HEADBUTT! Alexis brings Angela away from the corner, ANOTHER HEADBUTT! Angela’s on her knees… and ALEXIS HITS A SERIES OF HEADBUTTS! THAT KNOCKS ANGELA FOR A LOOP!
HYC: Alexis backs into the ropes and hits a RUNNING KNEE TO THE TEMPLE! AND ANGELA ROLLS AROUND HOLDING HER HEAD. That made such a loud thud, that could have easily caused a concussion, and Alexis drags Angela back up and hits… a SUPLEX DRIVER STRAIGHT INTO THE KNEE! The back of the neck just lands straight into the knee of Alexis Diemos, and Alexis straightens her back up just to hit her with a HAIR-PULL BACKBREAKER INTO THE KNEE! Lateral press!
Ref: OOONE! TWOOOO!
Stew: Shoulder up! Alexis gets up quickly now and bides her time, waiting for Angela to roll to her side to hit a RUNNING PUNT KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! JESUS THAT BOOT GOES BOUNCING RIGHT OFF ANGELA SALVETI’S HEAD, AND ALEXIS DIEMOS COMES RIGHT BACK FOR A JUMPING KNEE DROP! Angela gets back up, covering her head, racked with pain and Alexis turns her around, arm wrench, EAT DEFEAT!! Angela drops to both knees, and Alexis Diemos turns and looks down at Eclipse Diemos, the 2016 King of Elite at ringside… And you can hear Eclipse yell “Crush your enemy, totally” at his queen. Alexis nods in approval before turning back to Angela and hitting… the ROOM 13!!! DECAPITATING RUNNING BIG BOOT, NEARLY KNOCKING ANGELA’S HEAD CLEAN OFF OF HER SHOULDERS!!!! The cover!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE! TWOOOOOOOOOO!
Rex: ALEXIS STOPS THE PIN! LOOKS LIKE SHE’S LISTENING TO HER HUSBAND, AND HAS MORE DAMAGE TO DELIVER… ALEXIS HAS AN EVIL LOOK ON HER FACE, A MORBID SCOWL BEFORE SHE RIPS ANGELA OFF THE MAT, AND HITS THE DRAGON’S CONTROL!!! JUMPING SPINNING REVERSE STO! AND EMPHATIC HOOK OF BOTH LEGS! THAT SHOULD SEAL THE DEAL!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Damage” by Fit For Rivals hits, and Alexis Diemos celebrates her victory by having her arm raised by the official, before exiting the ring and being embraced by The Sanatorium. )
RA: Here is your winner and advancing into the next round… ALEXIIIISSS DIIEMOOS!!
Stew: Alexis Diemos puts on a dominating display, not even allowing her opponent to get ONE hit on her!
Cailin: Yeah, I guess with the level of competition being put on Alexis was more amped than even usual.
HYC: That’s what tournaments like this will do for ya’, it’ll light a fire up under your ass; that, and the full support of the Sanatorium rooting you on the whole 9 can help too. However tomorrow evening Alexis has a tall order, she’s not facing Angela Salveti, she’s facing CAMERON ELLA AVA in the quarter finals! Let’s just say, that ain’t the same!
Rex: Absolutely not.
( Grand Rampage 9 teaser… featuring the song “Wolves” by Kanye West )
( Open back up to the arena with a cleared ring and anticipating crowd )
( “Legit Boss” by Wale plays, and Veena Adams comes out dressed in ring gear and looking self impressed as usual with an angry, pissed off Silence following close behind her. )
RA: The following is the seventh first round bout in the 2016 EAW VIXENS CUP TOURNAMENT! Introducing first, accompanied by Silence, residing in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida… VEEEEEENNNNAAAAAAAA ADAAAAAAAAAAMMMSSS!!!
Stew: With this match comes yet another grudge match in what we now consider to be the “grudge round”, where yet another rivalry is pretty much being settled with this one.
Rex: Over the past number of weeks, Veena Adams and Silence have tried throwing their weight around, looking to make Erica Ford and Azumi Goto’s lives a living hell! These ladies, spawning from the first time they’ve faced, have jumped each other, cost each other matches, left each other bloodied and have made numerous, vindictive attempts at ending each other’s careers!
( “Senkou No Brave” by Toshiyuki Morikawahits, and Erica Ford comes out in her ring gear with Azumi Goto following close by )
RA: Her opponent…accompanied by Azumi Goto, from Talladega, Florida… ERRICAAAAAAAA FOOOOOORRDDDDDDDD!!!!!
HYC: Well you said the right word, “vindictive”, that’s what Veena Adams is in a nutshell, as is Silence. You might say she got it from her uncle, the legendary Mr. DEDEDE, but we might see even more vindictiveness tonight if you catch my drift.
Rex: Well if there’s anyone who knows about being vindictive, it’s the now-reformed Erica Ford who used to be as vindictive as they come here in the Land of Elite. However Ford has since claimed that she has turned over a new leaf, she’s taken Azumi Goto under her wing and has done all she can to change her character for the better!
Cailin: And honestly, I believe it, Rex. Trust me, I’ve dealt with Hexa-Gun for the last five or six months now, I know EXACTLY what “vindictive” is and Erica Ford’s not it. I frankly hope she gets the job done and teaches that spoiled rotten little Veena a lesson.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: There’s certainly no love loss between Erica Ford and Veena Adams, and the two ladies close in with their arms up, nearing closer for a lock up, anddd… VEENA SWOOPS IN FOR THE FRONT WAISTLOCK. One thing you can give Veena is that she has pretty much every intangible for making it in this business, she’s been trained by the best, she’s been under the wing of Mr. DEDEDE and she is almost the perfect blend of strength and agility. One thing, Erica Ford argues, that holds her back is her attitude, and Ford has promised that she quote, quote “give Veena the attitude adjustment she’s needed her whole life.”
Rex: Erica Ford’s got a front facelock, trying to sprawl down the back of Veena Adams to escape that waistlock, but Veena speaking of atttitude adjustment does a firemans carry takeover and hits a KICK TO THE SPINE OF ERICA FORD! And Veena gives off a big, conceited smile, shaking her head and wagging her finger at Erica who holds her spine in searing pain… and Veena comes after her again — ERICA CUTS HER OFF WITH A BLATANT PUNCH TO THE FACE! Veena backs away in complete shock, and Ford comes back after Veena with a LOUD KNIFE EDGE CHOP! AND ANOTHER BACKHAND CHOP! A THIRD! A FOURTH! Veena retreats to the ropes, and the ref demands some space between Ford and Adams… and Veena Adams RUSHES AT FORD WITH A RUNNING FOREARM! Ford spins out of it, rear waistlock from behind, but Veena breaks the hold by doing a HAIR-PULL SNAPMARE, AND ANOTHER MAJOR KICK TO THE SPINE!
Rex: Ford gets up to her feet quickly, leaning on the ropes and Veena whips Ford across the ring, Ford rebounds, JUMPING KNEE STRIKE BY VEENA ADAMS! Erica’s down and Veena approaches her…. and hits a HAND-STAND ON ERICA’S BACK INTO A KNEE DROP TO THE UPPER SPINE! Adams rises… ANOTHER JUMPING KNEE DROP! AND A THIRD KNEE DROP BY VEENA! Veena backs into the ropes, and comes back for a RUNNING PUNT KICK!!! NO! Erica Ford evasively dodges, shoulder rolls up to her feet, Veena goes after her, PELE KICK! And the cover on Veena by Erica Ford!
Ref: OOOOOOONE! TWO-
Stew: Kick out by Veena Adams, and Veena rolls out of the ring and leans over the apron to recover…. now Erica Ford gets to the apron and hits a RUNNING PUNT KICK TO THE FACE OF VEENA ON THE APRON!!! Veena drops down, holding her face, and THERE’S A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP OFF THE APRON BY FORD!!! Silence is walking over to Erica Ford, and the referee slides out of the ring to prevent any altercation between both parties! Erica Ford drags Veena up, and rolls her back in the ring before following suit, and Erica waits for Veena to get into the right positioning to sprint to the ropes in front of her and hits the SPRINGBOARD STUNNER!!!! BUT NO, VEENA ADAMS USES HER STRENGTH AND POWER TO CATCH ERICA FORD IN MID AIR, AND HITS THE GERMAN SUPLEX THROW!!! ERICA FORD GOES FLYING ACROSS THE RING, AND VEENA COLLAPSES BACK DOWN AFTER THAT FANTASTIC DISPLAY OF POISE AND POWER!
HYC: Both ladies are recovering from the damage they’ve taken, and they’re quickly recovering… Erica Ford manages to get up quicker than Veena Adams somehow, but they turn to each other and CHARGE AT EACH OTHER — VEENA WITH THE CLOTHESLINE!! ERICA DUCKS IT, RUNS TO THE CORNER AND RUNS UP THE CORNER FOR THE WHISPER IN THE WIND!!! VEENA TAKEN DOWN! Veena’s recovering quicker than expected, and Ford ricochets off the ropes — SILENCE SWEEPS THE LEG FROM RINGSIDE! AND ERICA FORD TURNS AROUND AND KICKS SILENCE IN THE FACE! VEENA ADAMS RUSHES UP AND GOES FOR THE ROLLING GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT AFTER THE ROLL, ERICA FORD DOES A STANDING SWITCH, VEENA TURNS AROUND, CLOTHESLINE! FORD RUNS OFF THE ROPES, REBOUNDS, RUNNING SLINGBLADE CLOTHESLINE BY ERICA FORD! AND THE HOOK OF BOTH LEGS ON VEENA ADAMS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWW–
Rex: KICK OUT AT TWO! Erica Ford brushes her hair back, and drops to a knee waiting for Veena to drag herself up to a standing position… now FORD SWOOPS IN AND GOES FOR THE ERICA DREAM!!!!!! STANDING SHIRANUI!! BUT VEENA ADAMS SHOVES HER OUT OF IT IN MID AIR! Ford hits the mat spine first, and Veena Adams backs away and hits a RUNNING LOW DROPKICK INTO THE SPINE! Erica Ford rolls damn near out of the ring after that one, and is on the apron using the ropes to pull herself back up… and VEENA ADAMS TAKES OFF FOR THE RUNNING ROLLING BACKFIST!!! ERICA FORD DUCKS DOWN, SHOULDER TO THE MIDSECTION INSTEAD! Now Ford goes over to the turnbuckle to climb up to the top rope while Veena recuperates…. and Erica Ford is perched up at the top turnbuckle, but VEENA ADAMS SPRINTS UP THE CORNER AND HITS THE EXPLODER SUPLEX OFF THE TOP ROPE!!!! WHAT A SURGE!!! ERICA FORD IS SENT FROM THE TOP ROPE, HALF WAY WAY ACROSS THE RING, LANDING RIGHT ON HER SPINE! IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU FEEL ABOUT VEENA ADAMS, YOU’VE GOT TO RESPECT THAT! Veena now drags herself over Erica Ford desperately for the cover!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONNNEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: KICK OUT AT TWO!
Cailin: That was mighty impressive! I have to admit, that may have been one of the best moves of the night so far!
Stew: From here Veena’s got to capitalize, but it’s certainly easier said than done that’s for sure! What’s commendable is that Veena’s already gotten back up to her feet, and she ducks down to scrape Erica Ford off the mat to hit a DEADLIFT SUPLEX INTO A JACKHAMMER!!! THE STRENGTH AND POWER REQUIRED FOR THAT! THERE’S ANOTHER COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: KICK OUT AGAIN BY FORD. Erica Ford showing some resilience here, and Azumi Goto is trying her best to will her mentor on and encourage her. Veena’s back up again, and tries deadlifting Erica Ford up from the mat PERHAPS FOR ANOTHER DEADLIFT JACKHAMMER! NO! FORD REELS VEENA IN WITH THE SMALL PACKAGE!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
HYC: Kick out by Veena! ALMOST a three! Veena and Erica scramble up — Erica catches her with a forearm! Veena comes back with a forearm! ERICA FORD WITH A SLAP! VEENA WITH A SLAP! ERICA WITH ANOTHER SLAP OF HER OWN! VEENA REPLIES WITH ONE AS WELL! AND VEENA GOES FOR ANOTHER ROLLING BACKFIST! ERICA DUCKS, AND HITS THE SPINNING SIT-OUT JAWBREAKER! Veena’s knocked down, but gets back up, and ERICA FORD CHARGES AT HER FOR THE SPINNING BIRD KICK!!!! SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!! BUT IT NARROWLY IS DODGED BY VEENA ADAMS, ERICA TURNS AROUND, VEENA HITS A JUMPING BODYSCISSORS INTO THE KILLER QUEEN’S RHAPSODY!!!!! KIMURA LOCK APPLIED, WITH THE LEGS WRAPPED AROUND THE BODY OF ERICA FORD!!!! BUT ERICA FORD IS CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE ROPES TO HAVE A FIGHTING CHANCE, ERICA FORD IS ALSO USING ENOUGH LEVERAGE TO TRY AND TURN VEENA AWAY AND FIND HERSELF A NARROW ESCAPE! AND SHE GOT IT! ERICA FORD’S LEGS ARE PROPPED ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! VEENA MUST LET GO!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI-
Stew: Veena releases the hold begrudgingly, and starts chewing the official out… Veena Adams drags Erica back up… Veena’s got some plans for Erica Ford… but ERICA COUNTERS WITH A FACEBUSER! Veena’s rattled, and Erica Ford rushes to the corner and hits a TRIANGLE DROPKICK! VEENA’S TAKEN DOWN! NOW FORD RUSHES TO THE SAME CORNER AGAIN AND IS GOING FOR THE MOONSAULT!!! BUT VEENA RUSHES BACK UP, AND CHARGES UP THE CORNER AGAIN BATTERING THE FIST INTO THE SPINE, AND NOW VEENA’S GOING FOR THE BACK SUPLEX OFF THE TOP ROPE! BUT NOW, FORD SENDS BACK AN ELBOW! Veena drops off the corner down to the mat, and Erica Ford turns around waiting for Veena Adams to get back up… and ERICA FORD LEAPS OFF!!! DIVING HEADBUTT TO A STANDING VEENA ADAMS!!!
HYC: JESUS CHRIST, VEENA’S TURNED INSIDE OUT BY THAT DIVING HEADBUTT, YOU CAN HEAR THEIR SKULLS CRASH INTO EACH OTHER! AND THERE’S THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOONEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Senkou No Brave” by Toshiyuki Morikawa hits )
RA: Here is your winner and advancing to the Quarter Finals… ERRRICAAAAAAAAAAAAA FOOOOO–
Stew: WAIT A MINUTE! SILENCE HAS ENTERED THE RING, AND SILENCE HITS A LEGDROP TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF ERICA FORD! AND SILENCE IS STOMPING AWAY AT ERICA FORD REPEATEDLY NOW!
( Ford’s music cuts off )
HYC: AZUMI GOTO COMES CHARGING IN THE RING AGAIN — OH MY GOD! SILENCE PULLS OUT FROM HER COAT, A LEAD PIPE!!! AND SILENCE SMASHES THE LEAD PIPE OVER AZUMI GOTO’S SKULL!!! OH MY GOODNESS, AZUMI’S BEEN BUSTED OPEN IMMEDIATELY, AND STARTS BLEEDING PROFUSELY!! AND SILENCE BASHES THE LEAD PIPE SEVERAL MORE TIMES OVER AZUMI’S HEAD, LITERALLY BEATING HER OVER THE HEAD OVER AND OVER AGAIN! DAMN IT THIS NEEDS TO STOP!
Stew: The official is calling for an end to this, but Silence SHOVES him out of the way and goes back over to Erica Ford… and SHE PICKS ERICA FORD UP, PULLS HER IN, AND HOISTS HER UP FOR A POWERBOMB!!!! OH MY GOODNESS, SILENCE GOES RUNNING TO THE ROPES, AND FLINGS ERICA FORD OVER THE ROPES FOR THE POWERBOMB TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!!!!!!
Cailin: OH GOD! DID YOU SEE THAT?
Rex: I HEARD THAT, I FELT THAT, THAT MORBID SOUND OF FLESH HITTING THE FLOOR! AND VEENA ADAMS IS AWARE OF WHAT HAPPENED, AND SILENCE IS GOING TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING FOR MORE!!!
( Security rushes in front of Silence, and separates her from Erica Ford. Veena Adams is in the ring, faintly chuckling, and she rolls out of the ring to accompany Silence following that vicious attack. )
( REPLAY: Silence beats Azumi Goto over the head numerously with a lead pipe, and Silence hits a powerbomb to the outside of the ring on Erica Ford, turning her inside out. )
Stew: A disgusting, morose display by these wicked women, who just can’t ever take a loss the right way. Instead they have to do this.
Cailin: How cheap. I’d love to get my hands on them. I can’t respect that at all.
( Veena and Silence walk up the ramp proud of themselves, and Azumi & Erica are being tended to as the show fades to commercial. )
( 5 MINUTE INTERMISSION )
( The Vixen’s Cup returns as we see an overhead view of the fans filing back into their seats… )
Stew: Folks our Intermission has now approached it’s end, and our final match of the evening is ahead of us. Let’s first take a look back on the story between two women who have battled each other without relent and without remorse. Take a look.
( Video package airs for the feud between Tarah Nova and Madison Kaline. It begins with the various efforts Maddie has made to win the Vixens title from Tarah starting as early as a year ago, just for her to fail repeatedly. It leads to Madison snapping at Pain for Pride, beating Tarah down viciously after retaining the Vixens title against the entire Vixens division. Flash forward, and we see Madison defeat Tarah Nova on an episode of Dynasty to become the Vixens Champion. However, after losing the Vixens title, Madison in a Vixens title match against Eris LeCava is attacked by a returning Tarah Nova. All of the attacks, foul words, interferences are shown from November until now, featuring Madison brutalizing Tarah at RTR, attacking her backstage, Tarah attacking Madison, strangling her with barbedwire, and their various brawls including the final near altercation taking place on Minns TV. )
( Cut back to the arena )
( DING! DING! DING! )
RA: This following contest is a 2016 VIXEN’S CUP FIRST ROUND MATCH… AND WILL BE CONTESTED AS A DEATH MATCH!!!! The only way for this match to end is if you incapacitate your opponent, to the point of the referee deeming they cannot continue.
( “Trap Queen” by Fetty Wap plays, and Madison Kaline comes out to the ring in an all black attire and a sinister look on her face. She walks down the ramp to the ring, ignoring the crowd the entire time. )
RA: Introducing first… from Tampa Bay, Florida… MMMADDDISOOOOOOON KAAAALIIIIIINEEEEEEEE!!!!
Stew: An eventful day one of the EAW Vixens Cup has just one more match left on the table, but it’s far from just ‘any match’, this is THE grudge match in the Vixens Division, putting a cap to a rivalry that has gone on for well over a year!
Rex: Tarah Nova and Madison Kaline have been the bane to each others existence for over the last year, it’s been a rivalry that’s gone from competitive, to personal, to sheer unadulterated HATRED! Look in Maddie’s eyes, there isn’t even anything close to innocence in them. This is a woman with nothing but evil intentions. I can only imagine what she has planned.
Cailin: Definitely an unpleasant sight. I’m not ashamed to say it, this girl can be a little bit scary at times.
( Madison’s music dies down and she paces around the ring, waiting for her opponent )
( “Boss’ Daughter” by Pop Evil plays, and Tarah Nova comes out in her ring gear and “Vixen Killer” attire, with Mr. DEDEDE following close by dressed in street clothes and holding his Answers World Championship. )
RA: And her opponent.. accompanied by Mr. DEDEDE, from Detroit, Michigan… TAAAARRAAAAAAAAHHHH NOOOOOOVAAAAAAAAA!!!!
HYC: Tarah’s made a vow to bring out the “Vixen Killer” side of her, and you can just see it in her essence, her body language is different, she’s got a completely different air about her. Just what are we gonna see from Tarah?
Stew: Both of these women look equally intimidating, this doesn’t even seem to be about the Vixens Cup for either of them. We’ve seen the dark side of Tarah Nova before, it is a sick, disgusting place in her head where she doesn’t even second guess some of the demented ideas that run across her mind. Scary to say, it looks like she’s tapped into that for this match.
( Tarah and Madison stand across from each other… and the official calls for the bell. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Rex: IT’S ON MADISON AND TARAH COME STRAIGHT AT EACH OTHER WITH RIGHTS! THEY’VE GOT EACH OTHER BY THE HEAD AND START HAMMERING AWAY PUNCHES, DUKING IT OUT IN THIS INCREDIBLE EXCHANGE OF BLOWS! NEITHER ONE WILLING TO WAIVER! NEITHER SIDE WILL RELENT! TARAH DOUBLE LEGS MADDIE TO THE FLOOR, AND NOW THEY TAKE THE FIGHT TO THE GROUND, TARAH’S MOUNTED OVER MADISON SWINGING RIGHTS AND LIFTS WILDLY WHILE MADISON TRIES DESPERATELY TO COVER HERSELF UP! Madison pushes Tarah away with her legs and rolls out of the ring… and Tarah follows her out, comes after Madison, but Maddie hits a knee to the midsection to cut her off! And BASHES TARAH’S FACE INTO THE APRON!
Stew: Madison’s got Tarah by the hair and hits a headbutt! Tarah’s leaned back on the apron, and a LOOOUD PALM CHOP BY MADDIE SENDS A GUNSHOT LIKE NOISE THROUGH THE AIR! NOW A BACK HANDED CHOP LIGHTS UP TARAH’S CHEST AGAIN! AND MADDIE GRABS TARAH BY THE ROOTS OF THE HAIR JUST TO SWING HER INTO THE BARRICADE SPINE FIRST! Tarah hits the barricade and drops to the floor, and Madison stomps repeatedly at any open part of the body of Tarah Nova! Madison backs away… and hits a BASEBALL SLIDE into Tarah! Tarah Nova’s recovering slowly, and now Madison uses this opportunity to go to the apron around the corner, facing the ramp, and lifts up the apron skirt to pull out… A CLUSTER OF BARBEDWIRE ROLLED INTO A BALL! AND SHE’S PULLING OUT MORE BARBEDWIRE STRANDS, AND IS TOSSING IT INTO THE RING! Now Madison comes around the other side of the ring, and pulls something up from underneath… and THAT LOOKS LIKE A BARBEDWIRE TABLE! THIS MATCH LOOKS LIKE IT’S FIXING TO BE A BARBEDWIRE MASSACRE!
HYC: Folks, we got to warn you, these are some beautiful women in that ring but this sure as hell ain’t going to be pretty! Madison lays that table on the barricade to our far right, and Tarah rolls back in the ring… Madison cuts her off with a running stomp to the head! Madison goes over to the barbedwire, and she lays all of the strands of barbedwire and the ball of barbedwire clumped on top of each other, just to go back to Tarah and pull her up… SHE MAY BE GOING FOR A VERTICAL SUPLEX ON THAT BABEDWIRE!!! But Tarah cuts her off with a European uppercut! Maddie turns around, and TARAH DELIVERS AN INVERTED HEADLOCK BACKBREAKER! Madison’s down to her knees, as is Tarah, and Tarah’s shaking off some lingering pain before rushing back up to her feet — but Madison follows her up and as Tarah rebounds off the ropes Madison hits a DROPKICK! Tarah recovers, and Madison goes for an Irish whip, but Tarah reverses the whip, sending Maddie jumping over the barbedwire and hitting the corner… TARAH GOES RIGHT AFTER HER, AND HITS A MONKEY FLIP SENDING MADDIE UP AND OVER, CRASHING SPINE FIRST INTO THE PILE OF BARBEDWIRE!!!! YYYYYYYYIKES!
Cailin: OH WOW!
HYC: MADISON SITS UP, YELLING IN PAIN AND HAS BARBEDWIRE STUCK TO HER BACK! And Tarah crawls over to her opponent seductively, hair in her face, creepy (but sexy) look on her face… and Tarah is mounted over Madison, and RIPS the strand of barbedwire out of Madison’s back before WRAPPING IT AROUND MADISON’S THROAT!!! WE’VE SEEN THESE LADIES DO THIS TO EACH OTHER BEFORE, AND TARAH’S NOW APPLYING A BARBEDWIRE-AIDED HANGMANS CLUTCH!!!! JESUS CHRIST, TARAH’S CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF MADISON KALINE WITH THAT STRAND OF BARBEDWIRE! MADISON’S GASPING, WAVING HER ARMS, FIGHTING FOR A REPRIEVE! AND TARAH TURNS AROUND AND HITS A HANGMAN’S ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!! Madison Kaline’s taken down, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she were down for the count, but this match doesn’t appear to be ending. Tarah’s leaving the ring while Madison’s left writing in pain, and Tarah’s right in front of us now… she lifts up the apron and drags out… OH DEAR GOD, SHE DRAGS OUT A CINDERBLOCK!!!
Stew: IT’S LIKE I TOLD YOU FOLKS, BEHIND THAT COOL EXTERIOR OF TARAH NOVA IS A SICK, TWISTED MIND! Madison Kaline is crawling over to the ropes, and Tarah drags her out of the ring through the ropes by her hair and takes her right in front of us and PLANTS HER FACE FIRST ON OUR TABLE! NO, Madison stops it, and turns to Tarah as the two have a test of strength, grappling with all their might before Tarah hits a kick to the midsection, turns to the table and hits a SCOOP SLAM!!! OUCH, MADISON HITS THE EDGE OF OUR TABLE! SHE’S SLAMMED ON TO THE SHARP EDGE OF OUR TABLE! Tarah gives her no reprieve, she drags Madison away… and PLANTS HER FACE RIGHT ONTO THE CINDERBLOCK! AND TARAH BACKS AWAY, OH DEAR LORD, DON’T TELL ME! TARAH NOVA’S GOING FOR THE RUDE AWAKENING!!!! CURB STOMP THROUGH THE CINDERBLOCK!!!!!
Rex: NO MADISON JUMPS TO HER FEET AT THE LAST SECOND, AND TURNS TARAH INSIDE OUT WITH THE EPIC KICK!!!! STRAIGHT TO THE JAW! AND MADISON QUICKLY GRABS TARAH BY THE HEAD, JOGS ACROSS RINGSIDE…. AND FLINGS TARAH NOVA’S BODY THROUGH THAT BARBEDWIRE TABLE!!!! TARAH GOES CRASHING THROUGH THAT TABLE WITH A HUGE CRASH, DRAWING A GASP FROM THIS CROWD! AND MADISON KALINE CONTINUES HER FURIOUS TEAR, DRAGGING TARAH OUT FROM THE SCRAPS OF WHAT WAS ONCE A BARBEDWIRE TABLE, WITH BARBEDWIRE AND WOODEN SHRAPNEL STILL STUCK TO HER BACK, AND MADISON JOGS ACROSS RINGSIDE AGAIN AND SENDS TARAH NOVA CRASHING INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! TARAH HITS THOSE STEPS SO HARD, SHE GOES FLIPPING OVER THEM AND LANDING ON THE OTHER SIDE, BODY CONTORTED, TURNED INSIDE OUT! AND MADISON IS ON HER HANDS AND KNEES WITH A SCOWL ON HER FACE, LOOKING LIKE A WILD BEAST!
Cailin: Oh my goodness…. I don’t even know what to say.
HYC: You can see the look of concern on the face of Mr. DEDEDE, this has gone SO far SO fast! These hellcats have no qualms about killing each other here, and the crowd is just eating this up! The referee is checking up on Tarah while DDD looks on from afar… and Madison goes back under the ring apron and pulls out a BURLAP SACK… AND SLIDES IT IN THE RING! AND NOW MADISON DIGS UNDER THE RING AGAIN, AND HAS PULLED A WOODEN TABLE OUT, JUST TO SLIDE IT IN… AND NOW LOOK, MADISON DRAGS OUT ANOTHER WOODEN TABLE, AND SLIDES THAT ONE INTO THE RING AS WELL! MADISON IS BRINGING OUT THE TABLES, AS THE TABLES HAVE TURNED HERE IN THIS VIXEN’S CUP DAY 1 FINALE. Madison enters the ring, and is setting up both tables, and eventually has both tables lined up next to each other, fully set up! And now Madison picks up that burlap bag… and EMPTIES OUT THE CONTENTS OF THE BAG CONTAINING THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF THUMBTACKS!!! THOSE THUMBTACKS ARE SPREAD ALL OVER BOTH OF THOSE TABLES!!!
Stew: Tarah Nova as you can see is struggling to get back to her feet.
Cailin: Geez, you can just tell she’s going through a tremendous deal of agony following that epic kick, and then table crash, and then that deadly collision with the steel steps! What a wallop.
Stew: Tarah’s climbing back up the apron, but Madison takes her by the head and runs her HEAD FIRST into the ringpost! And now Madison climbs up that corner from inside the ring, and is doing all she can to pull Tarah Nova up to the top rope… Tarah’s sluggishly being dragged up to the top turnbuckle, and Madison looks back at the two thumbtack covered tables behind her before HOOKING THE ARM OF HER OPPONENT! THIS WHOLE CROWD KNOWS WHAT SHE’S GOING FOR! BUT SO DOES TARAH, TARAH THROWS A BODY SHOT! MADISON REPLIES WITH HER OWN! AND TARAH HITS A FOREARM! NOW MADISON HITS AN ELBOW SHOT! TARAH WITH A FOREARM! MADISON WITH A FOREARM! TARAH WITH A HEADBUTT! TARAH NOVA’S SOMEHOW ABLE TO FIGHT BACK! BUT MADISON LEAVES HER DAZED WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT, HOOKS THE ARM AGAIN, AND SHE’S GOT IT!!!! NO! TARAH HITS ONE LAST CLUBBING BLOW TO THE MIDSECTION, BOTH LADIES PERCHED HIGH ABOVE THIS RING, AND TARAH HITS ANOTHER CRUSHING RIB SHOT! Madison jumps off the turnbuckle and drops to the canvas, down to a knee, while Tarah takes a seat on the top rope and is now fully inside the ring.. but Madison runs up that corner with a European uppercut! NO! Tarah with a kick to the face! Tarah drops off the corner and hooks Maddie, going for an Irish whip INTO THOSE TABLES! NO! Madison slides underneath both tables and makes out safely from the other side, and TARAH SPRINGS TO THE TABLES, RUNS OFF THEM, AND HITS A DIVING SPEAR OFF THE TABLES, TAKING MADISON KALINE DOWN!!!
Rex: And Mr. DEDEDE couldn’t look any more ECSTATIC about that move! Tarah Nova pulls off a BIG ONE on Madison Kaline! Both these ladies are down, but they’re now on the race back to their feet, with Tarah Nova in the lead, and Tarah charges back at Madison who’s on spaghetti legs and drives her into the corner! Tarah Nova hits a series of shoulder thrusts, leaving Madison virtually defenseless as Tarah keeps DRIVING that shoulder blade into the midsection! Now Tarah, with all she’s got, slings Madison over her shoulder and props her up to the top turnbuckle…. and Tarah follows her up to the top, this time hooking the arm of Madison…. AND THOSE TWO TABLES ARE BEHIND THESE LADIES, BUT MADISON’S THE ONE GIVING TARAH GRIEF! MADISON WITH A BODY SHOT! BUT TARAH HITS A FLURRY OF FISTS! A FURIOUS FLURRY OF KNUCKLE SHOTS STRAIGHT TO THE SKULL! AND TARAH HOOKS HER ONCE AGAIN, AND……..!!!!!!! THERE IT IS!!!!! SUPERPLEX!!!!! SUPERPLEX FROM THE TOP ROPE, SENDING MADISON KALINE CRASHING THROUGH TWO THUMBTACK-COVERED TABLES!!!!!
Stew: OHHHHHH MY GOSH LOOK AT THIS!!!! BOTH OF THESE WOMEN HAVE FALLEN THROUGH THE TABLES, AND MADISON SITS UP SCREAMING IN PAIN WITH WHAT LOOKS LIKE DOZENS AND DOZENS OF THUMBTACKS DRIVEN INTO HER BACK!!! AND TARAH IS NOT IN MUCH OF A BETTER SPOT!!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, TARAH ROLLS OVER, COMPLETELY SPENT, AND HAS A MASSIVE GASH DOWN HER BACK, WITH BLOOD POURING OUT OF IT! TARAH AND MADISON HAVE PUT EACH OTHER THROUGH THE RINGER IN THIS GRUDGE MATCH, THIS DEATH MATCH, AND THE REFEREE HAS NO IDEA WHERE TO GO FROM HERE! LET’S TAKE ANOTHER LOOK!
( REPLAY: Tarah Nova hits the superplex on Madison Kaline from the top rope, sending both women through the thumbtack covered tables. Cut back to the ring. )
HYC: HOLY — YOU KNOW WHAT! THAT WAS RIDONKULOUS! LORD HAVE MERCY! THESE GIRLS NEED A FREAKING TIME OUT!
Stew: Tarah Nova is sitting up, huffing and puffing and her entire body is just wracked with pain! She’s having to dig deep within herself to just even move! But now Tarah drags herself out of the ring, and literally drops to the ringside floor. Maddie’s hardly even moved, she’s trembling, convulsing at those thumbtacks and wooden shards being driven into her back and the back of her head, and her arms…. and Tarah drags herself up using the apron skirt as she’s right in front of us, and she pulls up the skirt one more time… and pulls out a BARBEDWIRE BAT!!! AND… AND NOW TARAH PULLS OUT A CONTAINER OF LIGHTER FLUID, AND SOAKS THE BAT WITH THIS LIGHTER FLUID!!!
HYC: TARAH…… TIME THE (CENSORED) OUT!!!! DON’T DO THIS!
Stew: TARAH’S GOT HERSELF A LIGHTER, AND SHE ENTERS THE RING WITH THE BARBEDWIRE BAT DOUSED IN LIGHTER FLUID…. AND WHAT THE HELL!?!?!? TARAH IS DOUSING MADISON WITH LIGHTER FLUID!!!! TARAH STOP!!!!! STOP THIS!!!!!
Rex: SHE’S TOO FAR GONE!!!! AND A LIGHTER IN HAND —
( The lights go out. )
Rex: WHAT’S GOING ON!?
( After a moment the lights go back on…. and The Sanatorium is in the ring, surrounding Tarah Nova. )
Stew: WHAT THE HELL!?!? IT’S THE SANATORIUM! THE CHILDREN OF THE DIEMOS FAMILY ARE SURROUNDING TARAH, AND LOOK FROM BEHIND! ALEXIS DIEMOS!!!! ALEXIS HITS A RUNNING BOOT TO THE BACK OF TARAH’S HEAD! AND ALEXIS DRAGS TARAH UP, AND HITS THE DRAGON’S CONTROL!!! JUMPING REVERSE STO!!!! TARAH NOVA’S FACE IS PLANTED INTO THE CANVAS!!! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ALL ABOUT!?!?
Cailin: This is ridiculous!
( Cailin Dillon stands up, ready to spring into action, but Erebos appears before her wielding a black baseball bat, and demands that she backs down. )
HYC: EREBOS IS REFUSING TO LET CAILIN INTERFERE WITH WHAT’S SET TO TAKE PLACE! MR. DEDEDE IS FURIOUS! HE RUSHES UP THE APRON, ABOUT TO INTERVENE… BUT LOOK, SOMEONE DRAGS HIM BACK OUT OF THE RING, THAT’S MAERO! VICTER MAERO OF THE SANATORIUM! DDD HITS HIM WITH A BARRAGE OF RIGHT HANDS, AND DDD SENDS HIM INTO THE RING POST! MAERO’S DAZED, AND DEDEDE NAILS HIM WITH A SPEEEEEEARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!! MAERO’S TAKEN OUT! AND DDD LOOKS TO RE-ENTER THE RING, BUT FROM OUT OF NOWHERE AGAIN, HERE COMES ECLIPSE DIEMOS!!! DIEMOS BLINDSIDES DDD WITH AN UPPERCUT, AND BASHES HIS FACE INTO THE HOOD OF OUR ANNOUNCE DESK! DDD AND DIEMOS ARE BRAWLING AT RINGSIDE!!! THE SANATORIUM HAVE STAGED AN AMBUSH!!!
( Madison Kaline is sitting at the corner of the ring, and she lets out a psychotic evil laugh while Alexis Diemos stares her down with a smile on her face. )
Stew: OH DON’T TELL ME….
HYC: AIN’T IT OBVIOUS, STEW??? LOOK, ONE OF THE CHILDREN OF THE SANATORIUM SLIDE IN A PACKAGE… AND ALEXIS DIEMOS PICKS UP THE PACKAGE, AND EMPTIES OUT THE CONTENTS RIGHT ONTO TARAH NOVA!!! AND TARAH STARTS ROLLING AROUND SCREAMING, AS ALEXIS DIEMOS DUMPS WHAT APPEARS TO BE SALT RIGHT ON THE OPEN GASHES OF TARAH NOVAS BACK!!! JESUS LORD!!! TARAH NOVA IS LITERALLY HAVING SALT POURED INTO HER WOUNDS!!! WHAT A MESS!!! TARAH NOVA IS LITERALLY CONVULSING IN SHOCK AND PAIN!!!
Stew: AND MADISON KALINE’S FINALLY BACK UP, AND HAS A HOLD OF THE BARBEDWIRE BAT, AND SETS IT ON FIRE!!!!!! AND MADISON KALINE SIZES UP THAT FLAMING BARBEDWIRE BAT, WHILE ALEXIS DIEMOS PULLS TARAH UP TO HER FEET… AND MADISON SWINGS THAT FLAMING BAT STRAIGHT INTO THE MIDSECTION OF TARAH NOVA!!! AND MADISON SWINGS DOWN THE FLAMING BARBEDWIRE BAT OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER, AND OVER AGAIN!!! MADISON HAS LOST IT!!! LOOK AT HER FACE! MADISON KALINE, WITH TEETH GNASHING, WITH EYES LIKE SAUCERS, WITH A PSYCHOTIC, TWISTED EXPRESSION ON HER FACE, IS SWINGING DOWN THAT BAT LIKE A MADWOMAN!!!! TARAH NOVA IS BEING BEATEN UNTIL SHE CAN’T EVEN RESPOND ANYMORE!!! AND THE REFEREE TEARS MADISON AWAY, AND CALLS FOR THE BELL!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( Madison throws down the flaming bat, and the fire is extinguished by ringside workers. )
RA: Here is your winner and advancing to the quarter finals… MADISONNNNN KALIIINEEEEEEE….
( “Sound Of Silence” by Disturbed plays, and Madison Kaline has her arm raised by Alexis Diemos and Eclipse Diemos who now enters the ring, and the children of the Sanatorium celebrate the result, taunting Tarah Nova in the process. )
Cailin: How upsetting…
Rex: Darkness has consumed Madison Kaline on this evening, as she has established her alliance with The Sanatorium. Madison exacts her revenge on Tarah Nova, and now advances to the quarter finals.
( Tarah Nova is being checked on by paramedics. )
HYC: I’m sorry, but I’m speechless. That was… that was just dark, man.
( The entire Sanatorium have overtaken the ring, and Tarah is pulled out of the ring with gashes, cuts, bruises and blood all over her as medics continue aiding her. )
Stew: We end Day one of the Vixen’s Cup in Toronto with this blood curdling scene. Madison, in a sense, has sold her soul to the devil, and that devil is Eclipse Diemos. And she couldn’t be any more happier.
( Madison laughs maniacally, surrounded by her new family, and the camera slowly fades away to black. )
( EAW logo buzzes )
( EAW Intro plays )
( The dark screen has ominous music playing in the background, and a shadowy figure can be seen approaching from the distance of what appears to be a narrow hallway. )
Madison Kaline V.O.: Are the gates of hell where I shall rome?
The devil’s playground, my new abode?
( Flashing images show last night’s main event in a graphic portrayal, showing Madison Kaline driving Tarah Nova full speed through a barbedwire table leaning on the barricade, and shows Madison and Tarah crashing through thumbtack covered tables, sitting up, screaming in pain. )
Madison Kaline V.O.: Or is this hatred I have deep inside,
the sanctuary where I reside.
( Tarah Nova is seen surrounded by The Sanatorium, and is attacked by Alexis Diemos, while Madison Kaline sits in the corner laughing. )
Madison Kaline V.O.: I was taken in by those like me,
who were not accepted by society.
( Images show Tarah Nova trembling on the floor, and Madison Kaline picking up the barbedwire bat. )
Madison Kaline V.O.: I ignored the ministers and preachers plea’s,
And embraced the devil, as family.
( Shot shows Eclipse Diemos laughing, while Madison sets her barbedwire bat on fire, staring into the flames, while the light of the fire reflects on her face. )
Madison Kaline V.O.: I’m filled inside with wild flames,
that can’t be extinguished, that can’t be tamed.
( Madison is shown bringing down the flaming barbedwire bat over and over again, in a gory, long, drawn out beat down until the referee forcibly stops the match. )
Madison Kaline V.O.: I’ll stoop to any depths, I’ll go any lengths
Because nothing truly matters… except your own strength…
( Madison Kaline is seen surrounded by The Sanatorium, and Eclipse and Alexis Diemos raise her arms. )
Madison Kaline V.O.: Darkness falls.
( Madison Kaline’s wicked, psychotic laugh to close Day One is the last thing seen or heard on the screen before the video package slowly comes to an end…. )
( “Heavy Crown” by Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding plays, and a video package of the other happenings in Day One of the Vixens Cup are shown, showing Rey Shamez, Azumi Goto, Sheridan Muller, Haruna Sakazaki, Cameron Ella Ava, Alexis Diemos, Erica Ford and Madison Kaline all advance to the second round. The video hypes up the final eight, proposing the question: Which of these eight women will go on to win the 2016 Vixens Cup??? )
( Camera cuts to the Air Canada Centre, where the packed crowd is cheering in excitement and waving their signs. )
Stew-O: TORONTO, CANADA IS THE PLACE TO BE, THE VIXEN’S CUP IS THE SHOW TO SEE! WELCOME TO DAY TWO OF THE 2016 EAW VIXENS CUP!!
Hey Yo Chico: HEY YO!! WELCOME BACK FOLKS! WE’RE DOIN’ IT AND WE’RE DOIN’ IT LIVE! Hey Yo Chico here, alongside Rex McIntyre and the legendary Stew-O, and folks, if you missed Day One of the Vixen’s Cup why don’t you do yourself a favor, pause this show right now, and check out just what the hell happened last night!
Rex McIntyre: I incur Chico, it was an EXCELLENT night yesterday, the EAW Vixens put on a critically acclaimed performance in what I believe was one of the best shows in recent EAW history! But that’s the thing, the show isn’t even over! There’s still WAY MORE to anticipate, there is still a long, loooong path to the finish line for one of these eight Vixens.
Stew: And here to join us to call Day Two of the Vixens Cup is the EAW Vixens Champion herself, ERIS LECAVA!
( Eris is seen approaching the announce table dressed in jeans and a Hexa-Gun crop top, with her Vixens Championship over her shoulder. She takes a seat at the end of the table. )
Stew: Welcome aboard, Eris.
Eris LeCava: The pleasure’s all yours, Stew!
HYC: DAYUM Eris, you’re lookin’ like a snack right about now! Lookin’ good, boo!
Eris: Oh stop your flattery, Chico.
Rex: Eris what are your thoughts on the Vixens Cup so far, and who might be your “favorite” so to speak to go the distance and win three matches in the same night to win that prized possession sitting up there on that stage?
Eris: Well the show was good, but lord, I couldn’t go 45 minutes before just muting the audio. I mean TERRIBLE commentating from Cailin Dillon. I’m going to do a lot better, you can believe that. As for my favorite…. I actually thought about this for a little bit, and while I don’t want to rule anyone out, MAYBE Madison Kaline?
Stew: She has been talk of the town following what transpired last night in that main event.
Eris: Right, and in my opinion I think you need that here. You need to be more vicious than everyone else. I mean, even if Maddie wins, she’s still not on my level. I STILL beat her for this Vixens Championship, but it’s nice to see that side out of her and it could be what takes her to the finals and beyonfd.
Rex: Well it’s time to find out for ourselves, our first match is in just a matter of moments!
( “Heavy Crown” continues playing in the background, and shots are shown backstage. We see Cameron Ella Ava entering the arena through the garage in all black attire, pulling behind her luggage. We see Azumi Goto and Erica Ford sitting together in their lockerroom, talking it out and discussing each others matches while wrapping bandages around their body. We see Sheridan Muller with her earphones on, warming up for her match tonight by shadowboxing and getting her blood flow up. We see The Sanatorium minus Eclipse Diemos in a dark, secluted hallway, standing together and Alexis Diemos is speaking to Madison Kaline who is staring off into space but listening intently. We see Haruna Sakazaki sitting Indian style on a table, posting on social media while talking with her best friend Jade Knight. We see Rey Shamez in her ring gear, near the gorilla position, speaking with her older cousin Kendra Shamez who provides her support and gives her a hug… and Rey walks through the curtain. )
( “Heavy Crown” dies down as the camera gets a shot ot the massive Vixens Cup Trophy Cup at the side of the stage, and the Vixen’s Cup V-shaped trophy on the pedestal. The RA enters the ring. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen it is now time for DAY TWO OF THE EAW VIXENS CUP! The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is a Quarterfinal match of the 2016 EAW VIXENS CUP!
(“Fighting Fish” by Dessa blasts through the arena as Rey Shamez comes down to the ring in red and black ring gear, giving high fives to the fans. Athletic tape is visible on her back and arms, covering up injuries from her match the previous night.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Portland, Oregon…The Sun Goddess…REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY SHAMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZ!
Stew-O: The younger cousin of EAW Hall of Famer Kendra Shamez did her family proud last night, surviving a pretty wild opening bout with Brody Sparks to get to this spot.
Rex: When this bracket was released and the quadrant that featured Silence, Rey, her opponent tonight Azumi and Brody Sparks was revealed, we all knew it was a wide open battle with no clear favorite to make the semifinals. Rey has a chance to take full advantage of the draw, especially with some of the injuries that Azumi suffered last night!
Eris: This little girl isn’t anywhere near her cousin’s skill yet. She’s alright I guess, but her cousin is a freaking legend! Nobody really thinks she’s close to that, right?
HYC: Rey keeps running into these Vixens with S&M tendencies. First the bullwhip-wielding Brody now the “Queen of Submission”? Is this 50 Shades of Grey or a wrestling event?
(“Kagerou Days” plays through the arena now as Azumi marches down the ring, foregoing her usual ceremony with her robe and fan. Even as she keeps a firm glare focused on the ring, she slaps hands with enthusiastic young fans as she walks by, the camera zooming over her heavily taped forehead for a moment.)
Ring Announcer; Introducing her opponent, from Okinawa, Japan…….AZUMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII GOOOOOOOOOOOOTOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Rex: And now Azumi Goto has a chance to keep the final of an All-Shinsei Domei final a possibility. She survived Silence in her first round match, winning by countout but in her tag partner’s contest against Veena Adams was assaulted viciously with a steel pipe in the aftermath.
Stew-O: I’m personally shocked she was cleared to wrestle tonight. She lost tons of blood and looked to be concussed, but she’s out here to compete!
Eris: She’s injured, blah blah blah. She came out here to wrestle so who cares? Rey is taped up too and nobody’s whining about her injuries. It’s the price you pay when you sign up to work in the toughest women’s division in the world today…which I’m champion of by the way. (big grin)
HYC: I get what you’re saying, Champ but some cuts and bruises are a whole different animal from head trauma. Azumi is seriously putting herself at risk competing.
(DING DING DING!)
Stew-O: The two young ladies stand in the center of the ring and quickly shake hands before easing into a fighting stance. Rey trying to throw some low leg kicks, showing off that Muay Thai background of hers and Azumi deftly blocking them off with her feet, equal to the challenge. Azumi goes behind with a waist lock and Rey quickly grabs at the ropes, forcing a break.
Rex: Considering Azumi’s head injuries she seems pretty fresh and competent.
HYC: How do we know she’s not seriously injured though? You saw how Silence was wailing into her with that pipe. How the hell can anybody be wrestling the next night after that?
Rex: Shamez and Azumi tie up in the center of the ring and Rey gets the advantage with a side headlock. You can see the heavily bandaged head of Azumi trapped in Rey’s grip…but Rey is up in the air and slammed on her back with an impressive back suplex! Both women back up to their feet and Goto with a kick to the chest and then a forearm blow right to the jaw!
Eris: Is anyone else laughing inside right now? One of these two is going to be two wins away from challenging me for my championship any time they want? No one else thinks this is laughable?
HYC: How do you know they would challenge for your title? There is another Vixens championship available to them if they chose.
Eris: Uh, because this is the most prestigious championship for women in the company, a company that Hexagun is taking over, mind you.
Stew-O: Azumi landing a palm strike to the face as she pushes a cornered Rey back into the corner. She’s positioning her opponent on the top turnbuckle in a seated position. Rey is in trouble as Azumi goes up to the top rope…. FRAKENSTEINER FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! WHAT A MOVE FROM AZUMI GOTO! SHE GETS UP TO HER FEET AND NOW POSITIONS HERSELF IN THE CORNER, EAGERLY ANTICIPATING SHAMEZ GETTING UP TO HER FEET! I don’t think she’s waiting on Shamez to get up to her feet, Azumi is stalking her in the corner, looking like she’s gearing up for that running knee strike, the Wizard of the Mask! Rey is up to a kneeling position now and here comes AZUMI…. WIZARD OF THE MASK….NO! REY MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY!
HYC: Azumi manages to keep herself from crashing into the turnbuckle in the corner but turns around and eats an Enzugiri right to that injured head! And she immediately stumbles down to a kneeling position! Rey pulls Azumi by that pink hair that’s become her trademark here in EAW towards the corner. What is she thinking? Shamez is up on the middle turnbuckle…SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB! AZUMI’S HEAD JUST BOUNCED OFF THE CANVAS AND SHE MAY BE OUT COLD! REFEREE IN POSITION!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
(DING DING DING!!!)
(A smiling Rey stands to her feet to have her hand raised by the referee before the both of them go over to check on a still-unmoving Azumi. Azumi’s tag partner Erica and medical personnel also head towards the ring from the locker room as “Fighting Fish” by Dessa plays again through the arena.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of this match and advancing to the Vixens Cup finals……REEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY SHAAAAAAAAAMEEEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZ!!
Eris: Okay, that was kinda impressive.
Rex: This match turned extremely quickly as soon as Azumi was hit with that Enzugiri. Once she was rocked, Rey Shamez was able to take full advantage. Azumi now standing up with the help of her partner and the medical attendants here at ringside. Azumi and Rey exchanging a few words with each other before Rey gives her a light pat on the back before Azumi is helped out of the ring.
Stew-O: Good sportsmanship between the two of them. You certainly don’t think that it was Rey’s intention to exacerbate any injuries that Azumi may have had but you got the feeling the only way she’d advance after surviving that sudden flurry from Azumi was to go to that injury.
Eris: All this lovey, huggy B.S. is annoying the hell out of me. When are we gonna see blood again like we did last night?
Rex: No blood, but definitely some guts on display as Rey Shamez continues her unlikely run in this Vixens Cup and Azumi Goto bows out despite a game effort.
( SHOWDOWN RECAP. Recap to the events that took place on Showdown last night during the Vixens Cup! )
( Camera cuts backstage… and we see Corporate HRDO, walking with a corporate comglomerate in a dark suit and dark shades through the hallways with Quality Control flanking him, creating a militaristic presence in the hallways. )
( Eve approaches HRDO with a microphone in hand )
Eve: Excuse me, HRDO. I just wanted to get some direct input on yesterday’s Vixens Cup, and how you think things went.
Corporate HRDO: You want me to tell you the truth Eve? I hated it.
Eve: Really? ….
HRDO: I’m just being honest. I hated it. It went against everything I had intended when I created the Vixens Cup. I had intended for this tournament to be solely about the athletes. I wanted it to be about wrestling ability, and nothing but it. This is supposed to be a WRESTLING show, and there was way too much stupid drama for my liking. What good is a tournament if we can’t truly know whether the best person wins or not?
Eve: Fair enough. We’ve seen almost a militaristic presence of Quality Control around the arena, and of course on social media last night you tweeted out that Quality Control would be a factor in tonight’s show. Care to elaborate?
HRDO: Quality Control is here to make sure there is no presence or interference in the ring, or at ringside. I’ve banned all miscellanious parties from ringside. Their job is to make sure Day Two compensates for the integrity that Day One lacked. There will be no ambushes, no backstage fights, no unnecessary raucous to tarnish the show. With enough luck, I think tonight we can salvage up a damn good show; and as I said to the Vixens before, may the odds ever be in their favor.
( HRDO keeps walking, and is followed by the corporate affiliates and Quality Control. )
( Cut back to the arena. )
Ring Announcer: The Following contest is a Quarterfinal match of the 2016 EAW Vixens Cup and it is set for one fall!
(“Surfacing” by Slipknot plays as Sheridan Muller makes her way down the ramp to an unusually high amount of cheers. Looking around in disgust a bit, she shakes her head before making her way down the ramp.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, from Munich, Germany, SHERRRRRRIDANNNNNNNNN MUUUUUUUUUUULERRRRRRR!!!!
Stew-O: German efficiency took care of Raven Lee last night and now Sheridan has another massive test as she tries to make her way to the semifinals!
Eris: Great. Another boring mat wrestler. Whoopee.
Rex: Boring but effective. Not much unlike the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA, Sheridan may not always perform with an exciting style but she is nevertheless a force in the ring.
(“Shoegazer” by Eir Aoi plays and the crowd starts to boo Haruna as she makes her way down to the ring. Small chants of “YOU SCREWED CLOUD! YOU SCREWED CLOUD!” begin to reverberate through the arena.)
Ring Announcer: And her opponent, From Akibahara, Japan…She is the “PRIDE OF THE VIXENS DIVISION” …HARRRRRRRRRUNAAAAAAAAA SAKAZAKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
HYC: What an incredible match she had with Cloud Matsuda last night.
Rex: A match marred by Jade Knight’s interference, one of several incidents last night that prompted EAW management to bar any and all outside interference in matches tonight. I’m sure a similar incident tonight will be met with dire consequences.
Stew-O: Even so, Haruna is a battle worn veteran in the Vixens division, the very first EAW Specialists Champion. Sheridan’s style of wrestling honestly plays very well into the hands of Sakazaki.
(DING DING DING!!!)
Rex: And here we go, the winner of this contest goes on to meet the surprising Rey Shamez in the semifinal round later tonight. Sheridan looking to tie up collar and elbow but Haruna evades. Sheridan again trying to engage, going for a single leg takedown but Haruna side steps and steps into a corner. Sheridan wants to go at it and engage her in the corner but the referee forces her back.
HYC: Is it just me or is Haruna seemingly a little hesitant to get it on here? I mean, she was incredibly aggressive last night vs Cloud from the jump.
Stew-O: I’m not really sure, Chico but I do know that Sheridan looks focused and ready for this match. This time Haruna does tie up collar and elbow with Sheridan and Haruna forces her back into a corner. The referee is calling for the clean break but…. well, here’s a shocker, Haruna taking a cheap shot. Who would think she would stoop so low after last night, huh?
Rex: Haruna landing some vicious palm strikes right to the face of Sheridan, then a magnificent European uppercut. Haruna Irish whips Sheridan into the far corner and comes in with a massive corner clothesline! Sheridan stunned as Haruna grasps her and hits a running bulldog! She goes for the cover right away!
Stew-O: An impressive start from Haruna attar being quite hesitant. She is up on her feet waiting for Sheridan to get up. Haruna comes in and hits her with a flying clothesline! The German down once again!
HYC: I wonder if there were any confrontations like this between German and Japanese housewives during World War II?
Rex: Will you be serious!? Haruna up to her feet and driving her boot against Sheridan’s throat, grabbing the rope and just driving down just driving her boot deeper and deeper, trying to choke her out!
Ref: ONE…. TWO…. THREE…. FOUR
Haruna; I HAVE UNTIL FIVE! DON’T YOU KNOW THE RULES!?
Stew-O: (scoffs) Rules? RULES!? After what you did last night you have the audacity to talk about rules? Rules left yesterday as far as you’re concerned!
Rex; She does finally pick her boot up off the throat of Sheridan who is choking, gasping desperately for air here! Haruna with the advantage early on in this match! Haruna pulling her up by the hair, Sheridan slams her elbow into the sternum of Sakazaki, stunning her again with another blow, but Haruna reaches down and rakes the eyes! And then she hits her with a kick right to the face!
Eris: Hello plastic surgeon’s office! That one may have broken her nose, guys. I mean, it was ugly and kinda pointy anyway, but she’s definitely going to need work now!
Stew-O: I don’t know who we have to babysit on commentary more, you or Chico over there?
Eris: Um, excuse me!?
Rex: Haruna pulls her up to a vertical base and starts the Dance Floor Shredder, but Sheridan cuts her off with a European uppercut! And another one, and another one! AND ANOTHER ONE THAT SENDS HER DOWN TO A KNEELING POSITON! Haruna down on one knee as Sheridan steps back…STEP UP ENZUGIRI! You can hear the slap of that boot off the head of the Tsundere as Sheridan pushes her down to the mat looking for a cover!
Stew-O: Sheridan has turned the tide of this contest and is back onto her feet! Haruna is holding her hands up, asking the referee to call a timeout? In the middle of a wrestling tournament!? The referee having none of that and imploring Haruna to get up…. Sheridan goes for a side kick…OH COME ON!
(The crowd boos as Haruna grabs the referee and puts him in the way of Sheridan’s kick, forcing her to let up and lose her balance and making for an easy takedown for Haruna.)
Rex: …. should we just talk that one up to being a “Veteran” maneuver? Haruna on top now raining down elbows on the head of the German sensation! Haruna in control of the matchup now as she pulls Sheridan up to her feet…DANCE CITY SHREDDER COMBINATION!
Stew-O: She’s not done yet! Gate of Light Punch! SHERIDAN IN SERIOUS TROUBLE! LAPIS LAZULI! THAT JUMPING CORKSCREW ROUNDHOUSE KICK CONNECTS WITH SHERIDAN RIGHT IN THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! BUT SHE HAS JUST ENOUGH PRESENCE OF MIND TO FALL OUTSIDE THE RING!
HYC: Haruna should have won the match right there! That blow should have advanced her on to the semis but Sheridan falls out of the ring! What do you guys think of Haruna’s tactics now though? It’s like she’s taking any and every route she can to remain alive in this tournament.
Eris: I think it’s cool.
Rex: I think it’s disgusting, and maybe a little karma coming into play here as Haruna goes outside the ring to roll Sheridan back into the ring. Haruna going up to the top turnbuckle…. BIG FLYING BODY SPLASH FROM THE TOP ROPE! THAT COULD BE ALL, SHE HOOKS THE LEG!
Stew-O: Haruna looks up at the official in shock here as this match continues! The “Pride of the Vixens Division” is shocked that Sheridan is still fighting in this match. Haruna pulls up Sheridan but is met with a vicious European uppercut! Haruna lands a punch to the face but Sheridan lands a standing side kick to the quadriceps that has Haruna staggering a bit! Sheridan now going for a discus clothesline but misses…HARUNA FROM BEHIND WITH A BACKSTABBER!
Eris: Nice move there by Haruna to cut off the offense of Sheridan. She was getting back into this match and now it’s more or less back to where we started.
Rex: Insight from the EAW Vixens Champion Eris LeCava joining us here on commentary for this Vixens Cup special here on the EAW network! Haruna pulling Sheridan up to her feet and…WAIT SHERIDAN WAS PLAYING POSSOM! SHE GOES BEHIND AND HOOKS BOTH ARMS OF HARUNA…. TIGER SUPLEX INTO A BEAUTIFUL BRIDGE! COULD THAT BE IT!?
Stew-O: Haruna is being tested by Sheridan here in this hard-fought quarterfinal! Both women are up to their feet and Haruna lands a vicious chop to the chest! SHERIDAN RESPONDS WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! AND THEN HARUNA LANDS A KICK TO THE HEAD! SHERIDAN DIZZIED AND HARUNA COMES IN WITH A LARIAT THAT SENDS MULLER SPINNING DOWN TO THE CANVAS! Now Haruna looking for Marawu Sekai! She’s not going to waste any more time…here it comes as SHERIDAN GETS TO HER FEET…MARA-NO! SHERIDAN PULLS HERSELF OUT OF THE WAY AND HARUNA LANDS ASS-FIRST ON THE CANVAS!
Rex: MULLER WITH A KICK TO THE TEMPLE AND SHERIDAN BACK IN CONTROL OF THIS CONTEST NOW! SHE SPRINTS UP TO THE TOP ROPE…DIVING DOUBLE FOOTSTOMP CRASHING INTO THE RIBS OF HARUNA SAKAZAKI! CAN WE SEE A SURPRISE HERE IN THE QUARTER FINALS!? SHERIDAN HOOKS THE LEG!
Stew-O: OH! SO CLOSE! Sheridan thought she had it won there, most of the arena did too, but it’s only a 2 count! Sheridan not wasting any time though! She’s pulling up a dazed Haruna for a Sherplex! AND HERE GOES THE…. OH, COME ON! AGAIN! HARUNA GRABBING THE REFEREE, SAVING HERSELF FROM A LOSS HERE! SHERIDAN TRYING TO PULL HARUNA OFF THE REF BUT GETS CAUGHT WITH AN ELBOW TO THE FACE!
Rex: And even worse for Sheridan, Haruna slips behind her and hits her with a RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX OF HER OWN! Sheridan folded up and bouncing on her back, tumbling until she’s on her knees….AND HARUNA COMES IN AND RUNS WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE! IF SHERIDAN’S NOSE WASN’T BROKEN BEFORE IT PROBABLY IS NOW!
HYC: Sheridan’s in some big trouble here! Haruna up and taunting the crowd, telling them it’s over!
Crowd: YOU SCREWED CLOUD! YOU SCREWED CLOUD! YOU SCREWED CLOUD!
Eris: She needs to go ahead and finish Sheridan off and stop worrying about Cloud and these fans!
Rex: Haruna waving her hands in disgust as she turns her attention back to Sheridan, lifting her up….and we saw this last night. This Argentine backbreaker hold…. the prelude to the Requiem…and HERE IT COMES! – WAIT A SECOND…SHERIDAN LOCKING IN THE PANZER LOCK! HARUNA COLLAPSING TO THE MAT! PANZER LOCK LOCKED IN AFTER A BEAUTIFUL COUNTER OF HARUNA’S REQUIEM! SHE’S TRAPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!
Stew-O: YOU CAN SEE THE LOOK OF SHOCK AND REALIZATION ON HARUNA’S FACE AS SHE’S TRAPPED! SHE’S TRYING TO DESPERATELY CRAWL OVER TO THE ROPES AND SAVE HERSELF…SHE’S ALMOST THERE, REACHING OUT WITH EVERY OUNCE OF STRENGTH IN HER BODY! SHERIDAN PULLING BACK, APPLYING EVERY BIT OF TORQUE THAT SHE CAN TO THAT NECK, SHOULDER AND ARM…. HARUNA REACHES OUT TOWARDS THE RING ROPES….
SHE TAPS OUT!!! SHE TAPS OUT!!! SHERIDAN MOVES ON TO THE SEMIFINALS! SHE HAS JUST SUBMITTED HARUNA SAKAZAKI!
(DING DING DING!!!)
(The Crowd erupts into wild applause as Sheridan gets up to her feet, screaming as the referee raises her hand in victory. A stunned and dejected Haruna rolls out of the ring, still in shock at what just happened as “Surfacing” by Slipknot plays through the arena.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of this contest and advancing to the Semifinals…. SHERIDANNNNNNNNNNN MUUUUUUUULERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
Eris: Well, that was a bit of a surprise!
Rex: Sheridan gets her second consecutive submission victory in this tournament, this time with an amazing counter of Haruna’s Requiem attempt!
Stew-O: Only one Rey Shamez stands between Muller and a berth in the Vixens Cup Finals! Can anyone stop this incredible German athlete!?
( Cut backstage… we see Aria Jaxon, Cloud Matsuda and Cailin Dillon all dressed in street clothes, sitting around a table in front of the television screen, eating Panera and rewinding the ending of Sheridan vs. Haruna in one of the populated lounge areas. Cailin has the EAW Specialists Title next to her on the table. )
( A knock is heard on the door, and Max A. Million enters the room with a mic, and approaches the three ladies at the table. )
Max A. Million: Ladies? Just a minute of your time?
Cailin Dillon: No problem! Just wait for Aria to stop stuffing her face.
Max: Any reactions to the events that have transpired in this entire tournament thus far?
Cloud Matusda: Well I sure as hell loved what I just saw. Let’s just say, Sheridan’s my new favorite.
Max: Well I guess we can start with you, Cloud. Do you feel perhaps any disappointment from not being able to put Haruna away yesterday, despite having her within inches?
Cloud: I don’t know if disappointment is the right word… it’s more like frustration, really. I guess I was enjoying putting the beatdown on her at the time, but I just… I just didn’t get to close. But Cailin and Aria gave me a bit of a pep talk, and they pretty much helped me get over it and just not blame myself. Haruna’s going to pull out whatever dirty trick she can when it’s at her disposal, but like we just saw, when the going got rough she came up short. Serves her right.
Max: Do you think this beef between you and Haruna is done at least for now?
Cloud: Nope. Not by a long shot honey. It’s going to be real, real ugly for them.
( Split screen shows Cameron Ella Ava approaching the gorilla position dressed in her ring gear for a brief moment. )
Max: So Aria, your rival Cameron Ella Ava’s up next. Can you reflect on your match last night?
Aria: I won’t even trip. I’m in good company right now, and Cloudy especially helped me just realize losses like these happen.
Max: Do you think you were outmatched by Cameron?
Aria: No, not necissarily. I don’t want to make excuses for myself, but I think it was out of my control. It was that suicide dive, it was the landing I took on it. I guess if you want to say Cameron simply made less mistakes than me, I’ll accept that. Maybe it was a mistake to go for that kind of move so early, but I guess that’s just pure speculation. Cameron may have been able to beat me last night, but I KNOW I can beat Cameron because I’ve done it before, and given the opportunity I’ll do it again.
Max: How do you think she’ll do.
Aria: Cameron? … To tell you the truth, I actually hope she wins.
Cailin Dillon: Suuure you do.
Aria: No, really, I do want her to win. Bruised ego aside, she’s one of the best. I don’t like her, but I have no choice but to respect her abilities. She had a no mistakes match last night, and if she continues to work that way I don’t see why she doesn’t win.
Max: Cailin, your thoughts on the tournament?
Cailin: Well, I’m still reeling from the Madison Kaline/Sanatorium fiasco. That left a really bad taste in my mouth. Tarah’s someone I can say I respect just purely as a competitor, and I respect Maddie to a degree but.. you just don’t do stuff like that.
Max: Do you think with this kind of momentum, Madison might win the tournament?
Cailin: I don’t know… but if she does, I hope she tries to come after me. I really do. I’d love to put her in her place.
Max: Thanks ladies. Stew, we’ll take it back to you.
( Cut back to ringside where the next match is awaited. )
( The crowd waits in anticipation for the next match. “Sound Of Silence” by Disturbed plays… soon after, Alexis Diemos walks out through the curtain noticeably alone, and receives a negative response from the crowd. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
RA: The following bout is a quarterfinals bout in the 2016 VIXENS CUP TOURNAMENT, AND IS SET FOR ONE FALL! Introducing first… from Dublin, Ireland… AAAALLLEEXIIISSSSSSS DIIIIEEEEMOOOOOOS!!!
Stew: Last night was perhaps a far bigger night than any of us could have expected for Alexis Diemos. Not only did she knock off her opponent Angela Salveti with relative ease, but she made SHOCKWAVES at the end of the evening by appearing during the hellacious death match between Tarah Nova and Madison Kaline. Alexis Diemos would host a vicious assault on Tarah, along with the rest of The Sanatorium overseeing this occurance, and Madison Kaline would reveal her alliance with this sinister group, picking up the win and DECIMATING her arch enemy.
Rex: And of course the repercussions of those actions are in play. As we mentioned earlier this evening, The Sanatorium has been banned from the building tonight, and EAW Vice President HRDO has stated that Quality Control will be in the arena ensuring that the remainder of this tournament goes without any interference.
( “Sellouts” by Breathe Carolina hits, and Cameron Ella Ava makes her entrance to the ring )
RA: Her opponent… from Los Angeles, California… CAAAMMMERRRRROOOONNN EEELLLAAAAAAAAA AVVVAAAAAAAAA!!!
Eris: It’s definitely pleasing to know that this night is going to really be about the best woman winning. Or, at least the best woman actually competing in this tournament. But I think it’s safe to say this match is a mismatch. Unlike me, Alexis is nothing without her stable behind her. I’d say Cam takes care of her petty quickly.
HYC: Well the playing field has been leveled for certain. Cameron Ella Ava seems pretty confident as well after defeating Aria Jaxon last night in a barnburner, and managing to pick apart her opponent.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: Both ladies circle the ring before getting into a collar & elbow tie up. These two are in a similar category in this match. Cam obviously the far more experienced and accomplished competitor, but these two managed to put away their opponents emphatically. Aria suffered an injury on her arm which Cam was able to capitalize on, and Alexis just utterly DOMINATED Angela Salveti, not even giving her a chance to deliver a single move!
Rex: Cam’s got the arm wrench applied, and turns it into a wristlock on Alexis Diemos. Alexis tries to center her gravity, squatting down and shoulder-rolling to the mat, but Cam shoulder rolls with her and applies a grounded body-scissors front wristlock! Alexis tries rolling over again, trying to roll to her front, but Cam refuses to relent from that hold… Alexis ROLLS THROUGH AGAIN, BUT CAM ROLLS WITH HER, ALEXIS SWINGS BACK AN ELBOW. Alexis rushes to her feet and hits a THRUST KICK TO THE CHEST OF CAM. SHOOT KICK TO THE RIGHT ARM, AND A COUPLE MORE TO COMPLETE THE SERIES! Cam turns away, and Alexis brings her up to her feet from behind to hit a HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! No! Cam counters, backflipping behind Alexis and dropping to the mat to roll her up from behind.
Rex: Kick out by Alexis. Both ladies scramble to their feet — KNOCK BITCHES OUT BY CAM!!! FOREARM SMASH!! It’s ducked by Alexis, Alexis takes Cam’s momentum into the ropes and Cam bounces right off of them to come back and get hit with a ONE-LEGGED DROPKICK! Cam recovers, SHORT-ARM LARIAT! Cam gets back up again, Alexis with the arm wrench… and an EAT DEFEAT BY ALEXIS!! NO! CAM COUNTERS GRABBING HER LEGS IN MIDAIR, AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS AS SHE BACKS INTO THE APRON… SLINGSHOT! Alexis gets slingshot into the corner, and lands at the top turnbuckle ribs-first, and collapses off the turnbuckle to land on the apron, dazed and weary… and CAM RUSHES TO THE CORNER AND SPRINGS OFF THE ROPES PERPENDICULAR TO ALEXIS FOR THE SPRINGBOARD CAM KICK!!! SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KNOCKS ALEXIS OFF THE APRON DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP!
HYC: Alexis D has been knocked for a loop, and Cameron takes her time, waiting for Alexis to get up before she steps onto the apron… and hits a NICE CROSSBODY OFF THE APRON! PERFECTLY EXECUTED! Cam picks up right from where she left off, dragging Alexis up and rolling her back into the ring before attempting the cover.
Ref: OOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEE!!! TWO!!!!
Stew: A kick out by Alexis Diemos. Cameron’s in the drivers seat now as you can clearly tell… and Alexis is pulling herself back up pretty quickly, and Cam comes right back at her with a forearm! But Alexis replies with a spin-kick! Alexis staggers away, and Cam comes back at her after taking the kick to the midsection just for Alexis to hit a European uppercut! Now a ROLLING BACKHAND! ROLLING FOREARM! ANOTHER ROLLING BACKFIST! CAM DUCKS IT, LARIAT BY CAM! ALEXIS DUCKS IT, TURN BACK AROUND, ROLLING FOREARM BY ALEXIS! CAM BLOCKS IT WITH HER FOREARM, AND HITS A RIB CRUSHING SHOOT KICK! NOW A TOE KICK TO THE MIDSECTION, AND CAM GOES FOR THE GODDESS’ TOUCH!!!!!! NO! ENZIGURI MISSES ITS MARK, AND AS CAM HITS THE MAT, ALEXIS DRAPES OVER HER FOR THE DOUBLE ARM HOOK, AND LOCKS IN THE LAST CHANCERY!!! LAST CHANCERY IS APPLIED BY ALEXIS DIEMOS! CAMERON COULD BE IN TROUBLE!
Rex: Cameron’s scrambling for something! She’s trying to turn and toss and use her own momentum to roll out of this hold, but Alexis has it locked in tight! Cam’s trying to batter Alexis’ clasped together hands with her own fist, doing ANYTHING she can to forcibly break through this hold, but Alexis REARS BACK EVEN FURTHER! WHAT AN UPSET THIS WOULD BE IF ALEXIS MANAGED TO FORCE CAMERON TO TAP OUT!?
Eris: Are you kidding? That’d change the complexion of this whole tournament! I might have to give her a little bit of credit if she managed to do that!
HYC: CHECK THIS OUT, CAM ROLLS THROUGH THE HOLD! CAM’S PLAN AT BREAKING THROUGH THE SUBMISSION WORKED, SHE MANAGES TO ROLLS OUT OF IT, AND ROLL BEHIND ALEXIS TO LOCK IN THE GODDESS’ GRASP!! DRAGON SLEEPER, AS SHE MOUNTS THE BACK OF ALEXIS DIEMOS!! AND CAM PULLS ALEXIS UP TO HER FEET AS SHE LOCKS IN THE STANDING DRAGON SLEEPER WITH THE BODY-SCISSORS! ALEXIS HAS NOWHERE TO GO, SHE’S TRYING TO THROW BACK ELBOWS, BUT NONE OF THE MARE CONNECTING! Alexis under a last ditch effort backpedals to the corner… and Cam hits the corner HARD spine-first, giving Alexis enough proximity to throw back some WICKED ELBOWS that jab right into Cam’s body! Cameron is forced to release the hold, and she crouches over holding her ribs while Alexis stumbles forward, turns back… and goes for a RUNNING CORKSCREW BACK ELBOW INTO THE CORNERED CAM!!! NOBODY HOME, CAM DUCKS THAT, ALEXIS’ ELBOW HITS THE CORNER AND CAM REELS HER IN…. BITCH CAMP!!!! SNAPMARE FACEBUSTER, DRIVING ALEXIS FACE FIRST INTO THE CANVAS, AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR THE PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOONNNEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Sellouts” by Breathe Carolina hits, and Cameron rises to her feet and gets her arm raised by the referee. )
RA: Here is your winner and ADVANCING to the Semi-Finals… CAAAMMMEROOOOOON ELLLAAAAAAAA AVAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Rex: Well as nefarious and blackhearted as Alexis may be, it’s still worth giving her some credit for being able to hang this long with the likes of Cameron. But there’s a reason why this woman has won the Vixen of the Year award four years in a row. Perhaps NOBODY can do it like she can.
HYC: No doubt, arguably the greatest Vixen of all time!
Eris: Behind HBG of course. (A)
Stew: Cameron Ella Ava advances to the semi finals to face the winner of the next match. We find out who Cam’s opponent will be after a word from our sponsors!
( COMMERCIAL BREAK )
( Return to the arena )
Ring Announcer: The following contest the final Quarterfinal match of the 2016 EAW VIXENS CUP… and it is set for one fall!
(“Trap Queen” by Fetty Wap plays as Madison makes her way to the ring in all black attire, the crowd booing her every step as a perverse smile appears over her lips.)
Ring Announcer: Introducing first, representing the Sanatorium, from Tampa Bay, Florida….” THE MISTRESS OF DEATH” ……. MADISOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNN KALIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Eris: Hey, it’s that crazy bitch I beat to become champion!
Stew-O: Crazy is a severe understatement. The actions taken by this young woman and the Sanatorium were absolutely deplorable last night. We understand that Tarah Nova was taken to a medical facility here in Toronto but we don’t have an update on her condition available yet.
Rex: I would like to say that it’s better for Erica that all outside parties are banned from ringside during the remainder of this tournament, but compared to Madison how fresh is she? She got powerbomed out of the ring and to the arena floor yesterday!
HYC: Not only that, Madison’s pretty much owned her every time they have gone against one another. I still remember that match they had on Battleground last year. Erica threw everything at her and still couldn’t finish her off. How is she gonna do at less than 100 percent?
(Madison casually leans against the ropes, waiting for Erica to appear, glancing over at Eris with a scowl of pure contempt before gazing back towards the entrance ramp. Suddenly the sound of an engine revving can be heard through the arena, cheers coming from the capacity crowd.)
“DRIVER, START YOUR ENGINE!”
(“Surprise Drive” by Mitsuruu Matsuoka EARNEST DRIVE plays as a fired-up Erica emerges from the curtain onto the stage dressed in black and red attire, Madison quickly standing up straight in the ring as Erica sets into a sprinter’s stance, her ribs and back heavily taped.)
Erica: Ready…. Steady…. GO!
Ring Announcer: And introducing her opponent, from Talladega, Florida……. ERRRRRRRRICA FORD!
(Erica sprints towards the ring and slides in as she’s being introducing before immediately standing face to face with Madison.)
HYC: Hey, Erica with the retro look for this match!
Eris: Clothes don’t matter, Music doesn’t matter. Maddie’s going to kill her. You all saw what she did to Tarah Nova yesterday. That speaks for itself.
Stew-O: I think a part of this may be a bit of self-motivation on Erica’s part. She used to idolize Madison by her own admission. And now as she watches Madison spiral further and further out of control, perhaps she’s trying to tell Maddie in her own way she will not walk that same path.
Rex: Gestures and words can only go so far, Stew-O. I think Maddie has gone far beyond understanding anything like that. The only way Erica may get through to her is with her fists.
Stew-O: Another thing that I’m worried about is how Erica took the loss that her protégé suffered in the quarters earlier in the evening. Can she mentally keep her focus after watching her good friend and tag partner go down in defeat?
(DING DING DING!)
Rex: And here we go with our final quarterfinal match of the evening and one that many considered the biggest mismatch. Madison just grinning at her opponent. Erica looks unfazed as they go in for a collar and elbow tie up…Madison shoves her down to the canvas onto her back! Erica wincing a bit as she scrambles back to her feet in the corner, one hand on her back.
Madison: You wanted me…. here I am! HAHAHAAHAHA!
Stew-O: You can see Erica favoring her back still. Needless to say that’s going to be a target of the sadistic Madison’s offense the duration of the match. They tie up again and Madison nails her with a knee to the midsection! She picks up Erica and hits a backbreaker…but then holds Ford over her knee, pushing at her chin, almost literally trying to break her in half! You can hear Erica screaming in pain!
Eris: Whenever you’re in there with Madison, she’s like a shark that smells blood. If you have any weakness on your body she targets, it like some sort of heat-seeking missile.
HYC: Jesus, is Erica’s head nearly touching the canvas?
Rex: Madison yanks Erica up and then takes her down with a Belly to Belly suplex! Patented offense from the former EAW Vixens Champion and Empress of Elite finalist! She hooks the leg and goes for a cover, trying to book her spot in the semifinals as quickly as possible!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! KICKOUT!
Stew-O: Madison back on her face, that sadistic smile that’s usually on her face these days giving way to a look of absolute irritation. Erica really struggling to get up to her feet…AND MADISON COMES IN WITH A RUNNING PUNT KICK RIGHT TO THE MIDSECTION! Erica doubled over in pain as Madison continues to target the injured ribs and back of the Talladega, Florida native! Erica is trying to struggle to her feet but is being toyed with by Madison, who takes the bottom of her boot and presses it against Erica’s face, driving her into the corner! Erica trying to pull herself up and Madison hits her with a punch to the midsection! And then a head-butt! AND THEN AN ELBOW RIGHT TO THE FACE!
Eris: Can the referee stop this before that chick in red gets killed? This is just painful to watch and I don’t like either one of them honestly.
Stew-O: Madison Irish whips Erica back first into the corner and she just falls to her knees in pain before collapsing to the canvas. The referee rushing over to check on her, asking her if she wants to continue, Erica nodding her head but grimacing in pain.
HYC: Maybe it’s just me, but is Madison looking even more angry than usual?
Madison: QUIT! RUN AWAY! THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE GOOD AT, ISN’T IT!?
Rex: Madison looks a bit annoyed that Erica is still moving and trying to get to her feet, pressing her hands against the mat in an effort to stand herself up…and Madison stomps at both hands! She could have jammed or broken a finger there!
(Madison then kneels besides a prone Erica, driving an elbow right down into the small of Erica’s back, drawing out a loud scream of pain before grabbing her hair and driving her face first into the mat repeatedly.)
Madison: YOU THINK YOU CAN WAKE ME UP!? YOU WAKE UP! YOU WAKE UP! YOU WAKE UP!
HYC: This is just brutal, man.
Eris: Eh, it’s not that bad yet. I mean the little Ford girl isn’t even bleeding yet. No broken bones. Meh, could be worse. She is getting her ass whipped though.
Rex: I don’t know why the referee isn’t stopping this, honestly. Madison is finally forced to let go. Erica is still moving, still trying to get onto her feet. You can see the bruise starting to form on her forehead from having it smashed into the ring by Madison. Madison getting into position possibly for that Afterlife clothesline.
Madison: GET UP…. GET UP, YOU STUPID, STUPID GIRL!
Stew-O: She’s more aggressive than ever now that she’s in league with the Sanatorium. One can only wonder what the likes of ONI and Eclipse Deimos have been saying to her to draw out this level of ferocity. Erica is barely able to get to her feet…HERE COMES THE AFTERLIFE CLOTHESLINE TO END IT! NO! ERICA DUCKED UNDER THE CLOTHESLINE AND IS SPRINTING INTO THE ROPES! MADISON TURNS AROUND HAVING MISSED HER TARGET AND ERICA HITS THE SLING BLADE! A SPINNING SLEEPER SLAM AS SHE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! KICKOUT!
HYC: Erica better keep the offense coming! This may be the only shot she gets to win this match. The longer this goes the more that back is going to lock up on her! She’s got to finish this off now!
Stew-O: Perhaps Erica heard you as she strains to pull herself up to her feet! Madison groggy but getting up to hers, Erica teeing off with shoot kicks to the chest and stomach! Every bit of energy she can muster is going into those kicks and they have Madison staggered! AND THEN A FIGHTING SPIRIT SLAP FINALLY TAKES MADISON OFF HER FEET! Erica now waiting on Madison to get up to her feet…SPINNING BIRD KICK! That sends Madison to the canvas again and she rolls out to the arena floor! Erica wasting no time as she sprints into the ropes again, looking to hit a suicide dive but Madison sidesteps it and Erica lands on the arena floor! NOBODY HOME!
Eris: High risk moves…. they’re called “high risk” for a reason. You better hit when you do them or you’ll be laying around like Erica here after hurting yourself!
Stew-O: Madison now stalking Erica as if she were some sort of prey. She pulls Erica up by the ears…AND THEN FLINGS HER BACK FIRST AGAINST THE BARICADE! MY GOD! YOU CAN SEE THE PAIN WRITTEN ALL OVER ERICA’S FACE! I don’t think Madison is done either…she pulls Erica back up to her feet and Irish whips her into the steel steps! Erica’s back just slammed against those steps and she is barely moving now. Madison is being pleaded with by the referee to get back into the ring and she complies, but not before pulling Erica up and rolling her into the ring again. Madison follows and starts stomping at the injured back before pulling Erica up and scooping her up in a powerslam position…. BUT SHE CHARGES ERICA BACKFIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLES IN THE CORNER…AND THEN SLAMS HER WITH A VICIOUS RUNNING POWERSLAM! ERICA STRUGGLED TO TRY TO GET AWAY BUT MADISON STILL PLANTS HER CLOSE TO THE CORNER! Oklahoma Stampede! Could this be the end of the match; Madison hooks the leg!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Stew-O: WAIT…. ERICA MANAGED TO GET A FOOT ON THE ROPES! WE ARE NOT DONE YET!
HYC: Madison is getting more and more frustrated it looks like…she’s pulling her hair and screaming. But…wait….is she smiling now!? I don’t like this; I don’t like this at all! She had a very similar look on her face last night against Tarah and we all saw how that turned out!
Stew-O: Madison pulls Erica up off the canvas and immediately deposits her back onto the mat with a thunderous power bomb! Erica is not moving at all. Honestly I don’t see why the referee doesn’t stop this before permanent injury is done to this Vixen’s back. I think Madison is intent on torturing Erica now as she goes up top. She’s going for the Living Legend Bomb…a moonsault that she’s used many times before…. SHE FLIES FROM THE TOP ROPE…MOONSAULT…BUT SHE LANDS RIGHT INTO THE KNEES OF ERICA FORD! AND NOW IT’S HER TURN TO WRITHE A BIT ON THE CANVAS!
Eris: Maddie should have just covered her after the powerbomb. I think she’s more intent on causing pain than actually winning the match at this point.
Rex: Erica is struggling to get up to her feet and is pulling the ropes to try to get up and stay in this fight. Madison is groggily getting to her feet, clutching at her ribs! She may be injured now as well, but that doesn’t stop her from belting Erica across the face with a vicious slap! Erica didn’t even flinch though! It was like the slap didn’t affect her at all! Madison tries a European uppercut but the same thing! Ford is running on pure adrenaline at this point!
Erica: COME ON!
Stew-O: Erica lands a vicious blow to the face! A hard blow with that right forearm again and again! Madison trying to respond with a blow of her own, but Erica counters with a head-butt! She then grabs Madison and hits a picture perfect DDT! Madison slow to get to her feet…Erica springs off the ropes looking for a Thesz press but is CAUGHT BY MADISON AND PLANTED WITH A SPINE BUSTER! MADDIE WITH THE COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! KICKOUT!
Rex: Erica Ford keeps finding ways to respond! Madison is screaming at the referee here but to no avail! She rolls out of the ring now and pulls one of the ringside attendants out of their seats and snatching that steel chair!
Eris: Just a quick FYI, When Hexagun takes over ALL of EAW things like this will be perfectly legal on all programming.
HYC: But it’s NOT legal right now, has Madison lost her mind?
Stew-O: The referee is warning her as she slams the chair down on the mat in front of Erica that if she does anything with it she will be disqualified! He keeps trying to reason with her but considering how insane she’s been acting lately I don’t blame him for getting close! He does manage to scramble down and pull the chair out of the way and Madison glares in his direction before turning her attention back to Erica!
Rex: Ford pulled up by Madison as she looks for the M.O.D., that fameasser that she uses on occasion. MADISON GOES UP…BUT ERICA COUNTERS AND MADISON DOES A FLIP IN MIDAIR, LANDING ON HER FEET! ERICA WITH A KICK TO THE GUT…. SHE PICKS UP MADISON WITH EVERY LAST BIT OF STRENGTH SHE HAS LEFT…. BRAVE DRIVER! THAT LIGER BOMB PLANTED MADISON INTO THE CANVAS!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
(DING DING DING!)
(Madison kicks out just after the three-count as the crowd erupts, a spent Erica Ford getting her arm raised just as she falls back to the canvas on her back, completely spent. “Surprise Drive” by Mitsuruu Matsuoka EARNEST DRIVE blasts as the official checks on both women.)
Ring Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, the winner of this contest and advancing to the Semifinals of the Vixens Cup……. ERRRRICAAAAAAAAAAA FORD!
Stew-O: Consider your brackets busted, EAW Universe! Erica Ford has done what many considered inconceivable before the tournament and bested not one but two of her biggest rivals and marches on to the Semifinals where she will meet the legend Cameron Ella Ava!
Eris: I have no words.
HYC: For once, me neither.
Rex: How about congratulations!? Erica being helped up to her feet by the referee…MADISON FROM BEHIND KNOCKING BOTH OF THEM DOWN WITH A FOREARM SHOT TO THE BACK OF ERICA’S HEAD! MADISON STOMPING AT THAT INJURED BACK! COME ON! THIS IS TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW THAT ERICA’S HAD TO ENDURE A HEINOUS ATTACK AFTER WINNING A MATCH!
(DING DING DING! )
Stew-O: Ringing that bell won’t do any good, I’m afraid.
Rex: Madison continuing to stomp away as she is digging around under the ring apron…. what she looking for!?
(The crowd reacts with a mixture of boos and gasps as Madison reaches underneath the ring and grasps a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire.)
HYC: (CENSORED). We need security out here now!
Rex: What the hell is she doing with that bat? She’s staring at it like it’s a newborn baby or something. Wait a second…she’s got a lighter….and…. that’s lighter fluid. Madison is lighting that damn barbed wire wrapped baseball bat on FIRE! And she’s going back into the ring! NO! SOMEBODY NEEDS TO STOP HER NOW!
Stew-O: She’s standing above Erica Ford! THERE IS NO WAY SHE CAN DEFEND HERSELF, SHE’S COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED…MADISON RAISES THAT BASEBALL BAT!
Rex: NO! SOMEBODY, I THINK IT’S A MEMBER OF QUALITY CONTROL IS OUT HERE HOLDING ONTO HER ARM! MORE ARE SCRAMBLING INTO THE RING! MADISON PULLS THE BAT OUT OF ONE MAN’S GRASP AND HITS HIM SQUARE IN THE CHEST! SHE BATTERS ANOTHER MEMBER ACROSS HIS RIBS! AND ANOTHER ONE GETS CLUBBED IN THE SHOULDER! MY GOD, THE CARNAGE!
Stew-O: Thankfully someone tackles her from behind and knocks away the bat! One man with a fire extinguisher manages to put out the flames on the bat and the attacked members of Quality Control! Madison is finally being subdued but it’s taking four or five members of security to do it!
(Medical staff come out and attend to the battered members of Quality Control and ask Erica if she needs assistance, but she shakes her head and gingerly walks away under her own power as the ring is cleared.)
Rex: How in the hell is that woman still standing? Or moving for that matter?
Stew-O: I never thought I would say this, being a Dynasty guy and all, but Thank God for Quality Control. They perhaps just saved Erica’s career, even her life.
HYC: She’s risen to the occasion twice so far in this tournament, but can she beat Cameron after that match and all that punishment she took? I don’t think so, mang.
Eris: Cam’s a pro. She’s a dork, but trust me, she’ll be ready. I think she’s seen enough here to know that Erica can’t be taken lightly, but she’s seriously hurt.
( VOLTAGE RECAP. Recap to the events that took place on Voltage just earler today at it’s special 2PM est start time! )
( Return to the Vixen’s Cup, and the night life is shown of Toronto, Canada, showing the busy streets and promotional posters/electronic billboards for the EAW Vixens Cup scattered throughout the city. We return to the inside of the Air Canada Centre, and an aerial display of the crowd is shown from above )
RA: Ladies and Gentlemen it is now time for the SEMI-FINALS OF THE 2016 VIXEN’S CUP!
( A shot of the Vixen’s Cup trophy at the left end of the stage is shown, glimmering in bright lights and seemingly glowing. “Surfacing” by Slipknot hits, and Sheridan Muller walks out through the curtain and approaches the ring. )
RA: Introducing first… from Munich, Germany… SHHHERRIDAAAAAANNNN MUUULLLLERRRRRRRRRRR!!!
Stew: We have narrowed down the Vixen’s Cup to just four women! Cameron Ella Ava, Erica Ford, Rey Shamez and this young woman right here, the pride of Munich, and the face of “German Efficiency” Sheridan Muller!
Rex: Wha an impressive young woman is she?
Eris: Yeah, Sheridan honestly reminds me a little bit of myself from the earlier days. You can just tell she’s incredibly confident in herself. She walks in the ring like she owns it, and perhaps it’s that confidence that’s gotten her his far.
HYC: No doubt sweetheart, this young lass still has a ways to go before winning the whole thing, but it’s been so far so good for Ms. Muller!
( “Fighting Fish” by Dessa plays, and an energetic Brody Sparks makes her way down the ramp and to the ring. )
RA: HER OPPONENT… from Portland, Oregon…. RRREEEEEEYYY SHAAMMEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZ!!!
Stew: Another young lady who hasn’t really been in EAW very long whasoever, but has managed to overcome some obstacles as well. She suvived a VICIOUS match against Brody Sparks, so vicious that she’s still got a couple of bruises sported on her body from it, and she also came away with the win against Azumi Goto.
( DING! DING! DING! )
HYC: Two blonde bombshells, but only one path leads to the coveted Vixen’s Cup Finals match, where the winner meets either Cameron Ella Ava or Erica Ford! Sheridan and Rey clasp hands for the greco roman style knuckle lock up, testing each other’s strength… but Sheridan has the power advantage, forcing Rey to back bend allll the way to the floor… Rey nips up to her feet, and wrenches the arm for a key lock, wrist lock wrenching the arm, and Rey converts it into a full scale armbar! Sheridan’s walks in a circle trying to get heself out of it… and Sher quickly turns and hits a JUMPING ARMDRAG on Rey! Rey recovers, ANOTHER JUMPING ARMDRAG, AND GROUNDS REY WITH AN ARMBAR AND PRESSING THE KNEE TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD. Rey’s squirming and struggling, refusing to let this be easy for Muller, but Sher definitely knows how to clamp in a submission hold with the best of em’ and just never let go.
Rex: She’s certainly got a lot of prowess in the technical side of things, and her best course against someone like Rey is to wear them down in all honesty. Rey’s working back up to her feet, getting up to on knee, forcing Sher to convert to a unique arm bar while in front of Rey… but Rey hits a fist to the midsection! A second blow! Sher with the KNEE TO THE SHOULDER! And Sher rebounds off the ropes, comes back, JUMPING CORKSCREW KNEE TO THE FACE BY REY! LATERAL PRESS!
Rex: SHERIDAN THROWS HER OFF! Sher sits up holding her face in pain, but Rey’s back up and RUNS DOWN THE BACK/HEAD OF SHERIDAN, rebounds off the ropes and is looking to come back with a punt kick! But Sher lifts her legs and does a FRONT BODY-SCISSORS WHEELBARROW BACK ROLL INTO A PINNING BRIDGE!
Rex: REY with the kick out! The two combats rush to their feet — and SHERIDAN RUNS UP BEHIND HER FOR THE WAISTLOCK!!! SHERPLEX!?!?!?! NO! REY WITH THE STANDING SWITCH, AND THE SCHOOL BOY ROLL UP! THE REF SLIDES OWN FOR THE PIN, BUT REY MUSCLES SHERIDAN UP FROM THE GROUND FOR THE DEADLIFT SCHOOLBOY POWERBOMB!!! AND REY WITH THE FRONT FLIP DOUBLE LEG HOOK PINNING BRIDGE!
Stew: SHERIDAN WITH THE KICK OUT AT ONE! Neither one looking to show any sort of give, they don’t even want to let the ref’s count get to two, and Sheridan rushes back up to her feet, but clearly too quickly as she staggers back into the ropes… Rey follows her, but SHER WITH THE BACK BODY DROP OVER THE ROPES ON REY! NO! Rey lands on the apron, Sher goes for the short armed lariat, shoulder thrust though the ropes! Sher’s doubled over, REY SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES, AND WALKS OFF SHERIDAN’S BACK TO GET BEHIND HER, BUT SHER SPINS AROUND AND GOES FOR A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE! REY DUCKS THE CLOTHESLINE FROM BEHIND, SHER REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES, TILT-A-WHIRL ARMDRAG! Sheridan recovers to her feet rather quickly, and Rey drives the shoulder into the midsection to take Sheridan in the corner! Rey with a few shoulder thrusts, but now Sheridan fights back with punches right into the back of Rey Shamez! Now Sher straightens her up, switches places with Rey and hits a cornered Rey with a flurry of European uppercuts! Rey’s being lit up by thos uppercuts, and now Sheridan’s trying to hoist her up to the top turnbuckle… but down come elbows raining at the top of Sheridan’s skull, causing Sher to set her down… and REY TUCKS HER HEAD BENEATH SHERIDAN’S ARM AND HITS THE NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX INTO THE CORNER!!! SHERIDAN’S LEFT HANGING UPSIDE DOWN IN A TREE OF WOE!
HYC: Sher’s left all topsy turvy, defenseless here at the corner, and Rey springs alll the way across the ring just to JET RIGHT BACK.. CANNONBALL SENTON!!! STRAIGHT INTO THE CORNER! COMPLETELY WIPING SHERIDAN OUT, AND THERE’S THE HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOONEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
HYC: NOPE, THE REFEREE CATCHES SHERIDAN’S HAND GRASPING THE BOTTOM ROPE AND WAIVES IT OFF! Sheridan rolls out of the ring, you gotta love the ring presence by Ms. Muller, you can tell even Rey wasn’t expecting that. Sheridan’s recovering at ringside…. and REY RUNS THE ROPES AGAIN, AND SPRINTS BACK TO SHERIDAN WHO CLIMBS ONTO THE APRON AND HITS A RUNNING SHOULDER KNOCKING HER BACK OFF! REY RUNS THE ROPES ONCE MORE AND BULLETS BACK ACROSS THE RING, SHOOTING THROUGH THE ROPES, WOOOOOWWWW!!! SUICIDE DIVE INTO THE TORNADO DDT BY REY SHAMEZ!!! SHERIDAN MULLER’S BEEN DRIVEN RIGHT ONTO HER DOME! WHAT AN IMPRESSIVE FREAKIN’ MOVE, REX!
Rex: A THING OF BEAUTY!
Eris: Damn… that was good!
HYC: That may have been as excellent as I’ve ever seen a Tornado DDT executed, and the official begins his count, urging both of these gals to get back in the ring! Rey rises, and hi-fives one of the fans in the crowd in excitement! Rey scrapes Sheridan right off the floor and rolls her back in the ring as the ref’s count is at three. Now Sheridan takes her momentum, just to slide back out of the ring and landing right in front of the ramp to take a breather. Now Rey slides into the ring, and slides back out the other side, as the camera focuses on Sheridan Muller trying to recover from the onslaught of moves by Rey… BUT GET A LOAD OF THIS! REY CLIMBS BACK UP THE BARRICADE… AND IS RUNNING ACROSS THAT THIN BARRICADE WITH SUCH BALANCE, AND RUNS OVER TO SHERIDAN RIGHT AT THE FRONT OF THE RAMP!!! AND REY LEAPS OFF FROM ONE STEP!!! SHOOTING STAR PRESS OFF THE BARRICADE!!!
Stew: NOBODY HOME!!! REY HITS NOTHING BUT THE RINGSIDE FLOOR, AND SHER DRAGS HER BACK UP AND RUNS HER STRAIGHT INTO THE RING POST! REY’S HEAD COLLIDES WITH THE RINGPOST, SHE’S KNOCKED FOR A LOOP, SHE’S DAZED…. SHERIDAN BARRELS ACROSS RINGSIDE AND HITS A MMMASSSIVE RUNNING LARIAT, TURNING REY INSIDE OUT, AND KNOCKING HER HEAD DAMN NEAR CLEAN OFF OF HER SHOULDERS! WOW THAT WAS A POWERFUL SHOT! AND SHERIDAN SENDS REY BACK INTO THE RING, JUST TO FOLLOW UP WITH THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: KICK OUT AT TWO! Take another look!
( REPLAY: Rey misses the SSP off the barricade, is sent into the ringpost, and is hit with a massive lariat by Sheridan. Return to the ring, and Sheridan sits on the middle rope watching Rey try to recover. )
HYC: There was some ANGER behind that damned clothesline, Stew! A wicked shot by Sheridan Muller, I thought in all honesty that it’d be over after that one! Sheridan’s going to need to take a breather after that onslaught by Rey Shamez. I’m tellin’ ya, when Rey gets going she just doesn’t stop! Sheridan eventually comes to a rise and bends over to deadlift Rey up from the ground… and DROP HER OVER THE RING ROPES WITH THE REVERSE VERTICAL SUPLEX! Rey’s drooped over those ropes, and Sheridan runs the perpendicular ropes and comes back for a BIG BOOT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Rey collapses to the canvas holding her head, and rather than going for a cover Sheridan climbs up to the second rope, and turns around waiting for Rey to come up… Perhaps to attempt some sort of diving move.. but Rey, after dragging herself up enough, bolts to the corner to hit a RUNNING JUMPING SPEAR TO THE MIDSECTION! Sheridan’s seated on the top turnbuckle, leaned over in pain while Rey backs away just to CHARGE BACK TO THE CORNER!!! THERE’S A HAND STAND OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND REY HITS THE HANDSTAND HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN FROM THE TOP ROPE, FLINGING SHERIDAN FROM HIGH ABOVE, DOWN BELOW TO THE CANVAS!
Stew: Sher suffers a great deal after hitting the mat like that, and Rey’s psyching herself up, jumping in place and waiting for the right spot! Rey dashes across the ring and rebounds off the ropes as Sher sits up…. REY LOOKING TO GO FOR THE REY’S LIGHT!!!!! RUNNING KNEE TO THE FACE!!!!! BUT NO, SHERIDAN SWERVES OUT OF THE WAY AND REELS HER IN FROM BEHIND FOR THE ROLL UP! HOOK OF THE TIGHTS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Rex: REY KICKS OUT, BUT IMMEDIATELY SHERIDAN’S ON HER TAIL, APPLYING THE WAISTLOCK FROM BEHIND AND GOING FOR THE DEADLIFT SHERPLEX!!!! BUT NO!! REY COUNTERS, FRONT ROLLING FOR THE WHEELBARROW PIN!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEE!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Rex: KICK OUT! These two fighters scrambling to their feet, neither of them able to put each other away… REY COME AT SHERIDAN FOR THE JUMPING FAMEASSER!!! SHERIDAN DUCKS IT, ENDS UP BEHIND REY, REAR WAISTLOCK! Rey runs into the ropes however, snatches them and Sher YANKS HER BACK! Rey clutches the ropes, causing Sher to roll back while Rey turns around, SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE AND HITS A BEEEAUUUITIFUL SATELLITE DDT ON SHERIDAN!!!!! NO!!! SHERIDAN USES HER STRENGTH AND BALANCE TO STOP HERSELF BEFORE HAVING HER HEAD DRIVEN INTO THE MAT, AND SHER COUNTERS WITH THE NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!! SHE HITS IT, ROLLS THROUGH TO HER FEET PERHAPS GOING FOR ANOTHER! STANDING SWITCH BEHIND REY!!! SHERPLEX!!!!!!! SHERPLEX WITH THE PINNING BRIDGE!!!! THERE IT IS!
Ref: OOOOOONNEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Surfacing” by Slipknot comes on, and Sheridan catches her breath for a moment, but gets back up and has her arm raised by the official )
RA: Here is your winnerrr and ADVANCING TO THE VIXENS CUP FINALS…. SHHHHERRRIIIDAAAAAAANNN MMUUUULLLLEEEERRRRRRRRR!!!!!
HYC: Well I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty much SOLD on this German Efficiency stuff! Sheridan Muller has fought her way through an entire bracket, and is just one win away from what could be one of the biggest come-ups in EAW history!
Stew: Rey Shamez definitely put up a tough fight, much credit to her for making it this far and bringing Sheridan to the brink on a number of occasions, but it’s hard not to be sold on her “German Efficiency” motto when she continually gets it done, as she has so far in this tournament!
Rex: And as the bracket narrows down, next up we find out who her opponent will be. Will it be the underdog with fighting spirit, Erica Ford? Or will it be the four time Vixen of the Year and Hall of Famer, Cameron Ella Ava? That answer comes your way very shortly!

( Cut backstage… we see Corporate HRDO sitting in his office, intently filling out paperwork. )
( A door can be heard opening, but HRDO doesn’t notice it. He continues to fill out paper work.. but we see a woman’s hand covering HRDO’s, stopping him from writing and prompting him to look up. )
( We see Brody Sparks bending over HRDO’s desk with a smile on her face. )
Brody Sparks: Hi!
HRDO: Oh… sorry, I didn’t notice you. How did you get past Quality Control again?
Brody: No need to worry about that. I don’t think we’ve formally met before… I’m Brody.
( Brody sticks out her hand, and HRDO sticks out his massive hand for the handshake. )
HRDO: Pleased to meet you. I’ve heard things about you… uncomely things.
Brody: Yeah, yeah, yeah. People will talk but don’t be fooled, I’m actually a sweet heart when you get to know me. 😉
HRDO: I suppose… though I’ve never heard of a “sweetheart” who pulls a knife on someone in her debut match.
Brody: I’m just wired differently, hun. You know, this moment is surreal to me. I’ve been a fan of yours for so many years! I remember growing up watching you in the AWF. In fact, your Hell in a Cell match against Crude was what got me into wrestling! I know you probably hear this every day, but I’m your biggest fan. (goo)
Brody: Mmmhmm, I even have that limited edition autographed mask… the design you wore against DEDEDE at Pain for Pride? Yeah, that one. I’ve sent you 200 letters over the years, but you must have never got them. There probably was a problem in the post office or something.
HRDO: Well… that’s very flattering, and mildly disturbing, but I’m kind of busy right now. Is there anything I can help you with?
Brody: No… but I’m still new here, so I’m sure I’ll have plenty of questions to bug you with. Just wanted to introduce myself… and give you this.
( Brody slips a note on HRDO’s desk, with a lipstick kiss marked on it, and Brody winks before walking out of the room. HRDO uncrumples the note, and opens it, and it has her phone number on it with the words “Call me ;-)” )
( HRDO looks up confused, and sets the note aside. The camera pans back to the arena. )
RA: This match is set for one fall and will be a Vixens Cup Semi-Final match!
(“Surprise Drive” by Mitsuruu Matsuoka EARNEST DRIVE starts to play as Erica Ford walks out to a rapturous ovation. She is holding her ribs in pain after two nights of vicious attacks after her victories. She slowly climbs onto the top rope and lifts her arms up very gingerly as the fans cheer her on)
RA: Introducing first, hailing from Talladega, Florida, weighing in at 120 pounds…ERICAAAAAA FORDDDD!
HYC: Erica has done absolutely exceptionally to reach this far, beating Veena Adams and Madison Kaline on the way. Unfortunately for her, she has been attacked and brutalised after both of those matches which have left her in a real rough state. This match is going to be a real tough test for her.
(“Sellouts” by Breathe Carolina hits as Cameron Ella Ava confidently struts out to loud boo’s from the crowd. She manically smiles at Erica Ford as she gets into the ring and immediately begins talking her down)
RA: And her opponent, hailing from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 125 pounds…CAAAAMEERRRON ELLA AVAAAAAA!!
Rex: Cameron picked up an incredible win last night over Aria Jaxon, those two vixens took it to the limit and it could have gone either way. Cam was one of the favourites going into the tournament and she has not let down so far.
Eris: (Coughs) Overrated (Coughs)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Stew: This Vixens Cup Semi-Final is underway! Straight away Erica just sprints at Cam and she is laying lefts and rights into Cam here! Erica is unleashing at Cam with forearm after forearm that has backed Cam into the corner!
Eris: You go girl! She’s not match for you!
HYC: Erica backs away from Cam as Cam is stood in the corner…Erica now sprints back at Cam with a splash!..But Cam just manages to moved away as Erica smashes into the turnbuckle..Erica turns around right into a vicious clothesline by Cam!
Cam (without mic): DON’T YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING THAT AGAIN
Rex: Cam showed a real aggressive side already. She grabs Erica by the hair and picks him up from the canvas. She then just tosses her into that corner and begins smashes Erica with right and lefts! The ref needs to drag Cam away from Erica here! Cam just pushes the ref aside and runs at Erica with a corner clothesline! Cam backs away but Erica is still on her feet..how is she still stood up? Cam looks a bit bewildered here…but Erica just flops forward! Those attacks must have taken it out of her!
Eris: Is this really the standard of competition that is competing for a shot at my title? This is embarrassing. Get it together!
HYC: Cam now begins just stamping away at the back of Erica’s head! Cam has now gotten on her knees and is just taunting Erica Ford as she lay on the canvas, Cam is getting in Erica’s face and just laughing at her! A total lack of respect shown by Cam here! Cam has now grabbed Erica and lifted her back to her feet, Cam is still just screaming abuse at Erica here and will not let up…but Erica with a quick right hand! Erica with a left and then another right! Cam is stunned here and Erica connects with a roundhouse kick! Erica has managed to knock Cam down! Capitalize on this, Erica! Erica is holding her ribs in pain here as she is urging Cam to get back to her feet.
Eris: Brilliant resilience shown by Erica! Maybe this division has more to it than I first fought, come on Erica!
HYC: Cam gets back to her feet almost immediately…Erica goes for a super kick straight away! But..Cam manages to duck under the Super Kick. Cam comes straight back at Erica and connects with the Knock Bitches out!! Cam with that brutal running forearm!
Rex: Just like that Cam brings any sort of momentum that Erica has to an abrupt stop. Cam just looks down at Erica with a look of real disdain on her face, she then just wipes her boot on the face of Erica. Cam is showing absolutely no respect to her competitors in this tournament. Cam has now gotten on her knees and is delivering blow after blow to Erica! Cam with a right and then a left to the skull of Erica..and she drops a knee right onto those injured ribs of Erica! Erica is just screaming in pain here!
Eris: Cam is just toying around with Erica here, I will be heavily impressed if Erica is able to find her way back into this contest.
HYC: Cam notices how much pain Erica is in and she just keeps dropping those knees into the ribs of Erica! Come on Cam, you might have broken them! Cam is smirking all the way through this, she is on another level!
Rex: Cam lifts Erica back to her feet and immediately grabs Erica in close to her…Belly to Belly Suplex! Without any hesitation, Cam picks Erica back to her feet and hits a German Suplex! Surely Erica can’t handle anymore of this punishment…. Cam is just toying around with Erica here. She once again picks Erica up to her feet and just watches as Erica stands groggily Cam isn’t even doing anything here, she is just laughing and smiling at Erica as struggles…CAM KICK! Cam had enough of standing around and just connected with that roundhouse kick!
Cam (without mic): IT’S OVER
HYC: Cam lifts Erica back to her feet, she grabs Erica by the neck…BITCHHH CAMP! CAM SMASHES ERICA’S FACE INTO THAT CANVAS WITH THAT SNAPMARE FACEBUSTER! IT’S BALLGAME…CAM INTO THE COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Sellouts” by Breathe Carolina once again plays over the speaker system as Cam gets her arm raised by the referee. She then looks directly at Eris and begins monitoring the title around her waist)
Rex: WOW… Light work. Two hellacious matches and two vicious attacks left Erica with no chance going into this match, she was left beaten and bruised by both Veena Adams and Madison.
Stew: On the form that Cam is on, I don’t think even a fully fit Erica would have been able to stop her. Who can possibly stop Cam when she’s in this sort of mood?
( 5 MINUTE INTERMISSION )
( A long form highlight recap plays of 2016 Vixens Cup tournament and the events that took place so far. )
( We return to the Air Canada Centre where the fans are as excited as ever, and a birds eye shot shows the Ring Announcer entering the ring with the anticipating crowd waiting by. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
RA: The following is the 2016 VIXEN’S CUP TOURNAMENT FINALS MATCH!!!! The winner of this match will be awarded the 2016 Vixens Cup, and along with it will be able to cash in their miniature trophy at ANY TIME and ANY EVENT for the EAW Specialists or EAW Vixens Championship! ….
( A shot shows the glimmering EAW Vixens Cup still resting at the left end of the stage… and “Surfacing” by Slipknot hits, as Sheridan Muller comes out through the curtain and takes a long gander at the Vixens Cup trophy while still taping herself up. Sheridan walks down to the ring, seemingly unfazed by the pressure.)
RA: Introducing first… from Munich, Germany… SHHHHERRRRRIIIIDAAAAAAAANNNN MUUUUUUULLLEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRR!!!
Stew: This is it ladies and gentlemen. Over the last two days you saw for yourselves as every Vixen in the division, essentially, fought from the very bottom. Some weren’t able to make it past enormous obstacles, some were able to come far but only go far enough! However the two that were able to excell beyond all of the others are the deserving ones to be here in these finals, and one of these two happens to be this young lady from Munich, Germany, who has touted “German Efficiency” and backed up ALMOST everything she has claimed so far!
Eris: Yeah, keyword ALMOST. Sheridan’s made it far, but she hasn’t made it far enough. I think my words hold a bit more credence than norman when I say this, but there’s nothing more important than closing. Can she close? Well, she couldn’t against Cailin, so she’d better pray that she can against Cameron.
HYC: Be that as it may, the elements are much different in a tournament. Fatigue, without a doubt, is going to set in much quicker for both of these fine athletes.
( Sher’s music dies down…. soon after, “Sellouts” by Breathe Carolina hits, and Cameron Ella Ava walks out to the stage and walks directly over to the Vixen’s Cup trophy. She puts her hand on the hold, seeming to claim it for herself, and after a moment with the prize she continues her way to the ring. )
RA: HER OPPONENT…. from Los Angeles, California… CAAAMMEERRROOOOOOONNN EEELLLAAAAAAAAA AAAAAVVVVVAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Stew: That’s a great point Chico, fatigue is definitely going to be a factor. There’s literal exhaustion, and then there’s wear and tear from having to complete this much. What perhaps puts these two ladies at the position there is is their history. Cameron simply put is where she is in this business for a reason, she’s GREAT. I don’t think she’s ashamed to say it, but with the hard work also comes talent! For Sheridan, it’s conditioning. She’s used to wrestling four, five, six matches over and over, she’s got the endurance, she’s durable. Greatness is almost a matter of muscle memory for her!
Rex: But you can see by the way Cameron looks at Sheridan that she doesn’t exactly view her in the same league. But then again, to Cam no other Vixen is in her league.
Eris: Well as much as I beg to differ… If there were ever a time to prove that to be true, it’d be tonight.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stew: So here we go! The 2016 Vixens Cup Finals match is underway! Cameron Ella Ava, a four time Vixen of the Year, multiple time Vixens Champion, two time Hall of Fame Champion, Interwire Champion against Sheridan Muller, the young rookie upstart who’s had what will be an unforgettable run in this tournament! Cam and Sheridan come circling the ring and close in on each other … WILD ROUNDHOUSE KICK BARELY MISSES CAM, WHO DODGES AT A SPLIT SECOND! And Cam shakes her head, almost telling Sheridan “not gonna happen”. The two close back in and…. Cameron snaps in a side headlock! Cameron is really wrenching away at that headlock, rearing in that hold as much as she can to wear her opponent down, while Sheridan instead prefers to lower herself to a knee… and SHER ATTEMPTS TO TAKE HER MOMENTUM OUT OF THAT HEADLOCK BY ROLLING THROUGH IT! CAM LOSES SOME CONTROL AND SHERIDAN CATCHES THE ARM OF CAMERON AND APPLIES THE PANZER LOCK!!!!!! NO WAY!!!!! ARM TRAP CROSSFACE LOCKED IN ALREADY!!!! THIS CROWD IS IN COMPLETE SHOCK!!!
Rex: CAMERON ELLA AVA CANNOT BELIEVE SHE WAS CAUGHT IN THAT HOLD, AND SHE DRAGS HERSELF SEVERAL FEET AHEAD OF HER WITH ALL OF HER STRENGTH TO MUSCLE HER WAY TO THE RING ROPES FOR THE ROPE BREAK! Cam wraps her hand around the bottom ramp, forcing Sheridan to break the hold! Sheridan backs away to the center of the ring, and Cameron turns around with a shifty look… I think Cam’s getting the message, this is NOT somebody to underestimate! To Sheridan’s credit, she’s been able to take the Specialists Champion to her absolute limit, and you can tell Cam is reevaluating her opponent right now. Sher and Cam close in on each other… THERE’S A SHOOT KICK TO THE RIBS BY SHER! SPIN-KICK BY SHER TO FOLLOW IT UP! Cam catches the boot however, Sher yanks the boot in and hits a BACK HAND ACROSS THE FACE ON CAMERON! Sher follows is up with a forearm, but Cam comes RIGHT BACK WITH A PALM CHOP TO THE CHEST! Sher swings a wild right, but Cam dodges it, SLAP ACROSS THE JAW! AND A CONCEITED SMILE FROM CAM SETS SHERIDAN OFF, AND SHER COMES AFTER HER FOR A CLOTHESLINE! But Cameron shoulder rolls under it and JUMPS ONTO SHERIDAN’S BACK FOR THE GODDESS’ GRASP!!! SHE MIGHT HAVE THAT STANDING LEG-SCISSORS DRAGON SLEEPER LOCKED IN!!!!!!
HYC: THAT’S A NO GO BY SHER! Sher RIPS Cameron right off of her back with the snapmare following a hand full of hair, and Cam sits up momentarily stunned while Sher runs the ropes and heads back to Cam. Cam drops down to all fours, Sher hops over her, rebounds off the ropes from the other side, Cam jumps over her, rebounds off the ropes in front of her, and is CAUGHT WITH A BEAUTIFUL ARMDRAG BY SHERIDAN! Cam recovers, ANOTHER JUMPING ARMDRAG!!! Cam gets back up yet again, and Sher perhaps was going for a third armdrag, but Cam counters out of that with standing wristlock… Sher walks in a circle trying to turn her way out of it, and Sher front-rolls to the canvas, forcing Cam to bend over and Sheridan hits a KICK TO THE FACE OF A DOUBLE OVER CAMERON! Sheridan nips up to her feet, and CAMERON COMES RIGHT AFTER HER! Sher drops to all fours, Cam hops over her, rebounds off the ropes and is TAKEN DOWN BY A LEG LARIAT!!! HOOK OF THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEEE!!! TW-
Stew: Barely even a two count allowed by Cameron! Cam sits up, holding her lip, but Sheridan’s not allowing even a dull moment in this match as she quickly stands up and grabs Cameron by the head and takes her over to the corner, smashing her face into the turnbuckle! Cam turns her back to the corner… and SHERIDAN HITS PRECISE PUNCHES TO THE BODY! RIGHTS AND LEFTS, BOXING-STYLE RIGHTS AND LEFTS HITTING THE RIBS, KIDNEYS, ABS, CAM WITH A SWIPE! SHER DUCKS THE SWIPE, CONTINUES THE BODY SHOTS! And Sheridan with the front waistlock… BELLY TO BELLY! OVERHEAD RELEASE SUPLEX ATTEMPT!! NO! CAMERON INSTEAD DECIDES TO DRIVE A THUMB INTO THE EYE! Sher turns around in pain and CAM HITS A DEBILITATING KICK RIGHT TO THE BACK OF THE KNEE, SENDING SHER DOWN! Now that was just cheap!
Eris: I can’t even knock it to tell you the truth. Sheridan shouldn’t have been so naive. Maybe this wouldn’t have happened if she wasn’t obsessed with this “real wrestling” crap.
Stew: Well Cameron’s taking some time to loosen up after having to eat those stiff punches… and Cam hits a RUNNING KNEE STRAIGHT INTO THE SPINE OF SHERIDAN MULLER! Sher leads out a yell in pain, but instead of going for the cover, Cam sits her back up, snatches the arms and locks in a bow & arrow submission! That knee goes placed right into the center of the back and Cameron yanks back those arms as hard as she can!!! Sheridan’s being forced to endure this submission hold, and Cam FORCEFULLY JABS THE KNEE STRAIGHT INTO THE SPINE! That’s just going to make things much worse for Sheridan, and moves like this again show the patience and experience of someone like Cameron, who knows that taking your time and creating a slow burn is much much more worth it in the end. Sheridan’s way too receptive of her environment as a competitor to go any foolhardy maneuvers too quickly. Now Cam adjusts the submission, keeping the arms yanked back but instead presses both feet into the spine…. and CAMERON HITS A MODIFIED MONKEY FLIP FROM BEHIND!! THAT SENDS SHERIDAN CRASHING RIGHT ONTO HER TORSO!! Sher’s momentum from hitting the mat so hard takes her up to her knees… and CAM HITS A RUNNING HEADSCISSORS DRIVER!!!! PLANTS IT! AND ROLLS HER OVER FOR THE HOOK OF THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!! TTTTTWWWWWWW-
Rex: Kick out right at two by Sheridan Muller! We’re seeing a different Cameron right now, she’s not reacting, she’s not touting, she’s not flaunting, instead she’s completely focused and zoned in… it’s as if you can see the wheels turning in her head at every point! Sheridan decides her best course would be to leave the ring, and she does so as she rolls to the apron and takes a seat on the apron… and HERE COMES CAM CHARGING FROM BEHIND WITH THE GODDESS’ TOUCH!!!!!! RUNNING ENZIGURI TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!!! BUT SHERIDAN JUMPS OFF THE APRON AT THE LAST SECOND, CREATING A CLOSE CALL! Cam rolls out of the ring, and Sheridan comes right after Cam with some more body shots, but Cameron fights her off as well with closed fists, punches upon punches, and Cam tags her with a shot to the jaw! Sher’s stunned by that right hand to the jaw, and Cameron hooks her perhaps going for the vertical suplex… and CAMERON ELLA EVA DROPS SHERIDAN MULLER GUT FIRST OVER THE BARRICADE WITH A REVERSE VERTICAL SUPLEX!
HYC: Yeesh! Sher’s torso just hit that barricade HARD, man! And the referee’s count is already up to three! Sheridan collapses behind the barricade into the crowd area, holding her midsection, and Cameron rolls back into the ring and rolls back out to break the ref’s count at five… Sheridan meanwhile is recuperating from that reverse suplex, back up to spaghetti legs… and CAM SPRINTS OVER TO THE BARRICADE…… AND WOOOOWWW!!! CAM LEAPS OVER THE BARRICADE, HITTING THE RUNNING CROSSBODY OVER THE BARRICADE AND WIPING OUT SHERIDAN MULLER BEHIND THE TIMEKEEPER AREA!!! HOOOLY, YOU KNOW WHAT! THESE FANS CAN’T BELIEVE SHE WAS ABLE TO PULL THAT OFF!
Eris: DAMN! What an incredible move Cameron was able to pull out of the hat! Color me impressed!
Stew: At this point you can’t be surprised when Cameron pulls off something as incredible as that! Still, what an amazing dive! The official looks on with concern as Cameron brings herself back up, and has a hold on Sheridan Muller as well… and Cam leads herself and her opponent around the timekeeper area and back to ringside after that one! That move deserves to hit a highlight reel in the near future! Cam’s back at ringside and she rolls Sheridan back into the ring, and follows her in as she attempts yet another cover!
Ref: OOOOOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEE!! TWWWWOOOOOOOO-
Rex: Shoulder up! That’s not enough to keep Sheridan down, but I don’t know if anyone else noticed… there is definitely fatigue starting to set in on Cameron Ella Ava’s part! She hides it well, but her body language says it all, she’s losing steam fast, and she knows it as well! Cam seems to have made a decision, ahd pulls Sheridan up by the neck crank and MIGHT JUST BE GOING FOR THE BITCH CAMP!!! SNAPMARE FACEBUSTER TIME!!! BUT SHERIDAN DESPERATELY FIGHTS OFF WITH A FLURRY OF ELBOWS, AND AGAIN INTO THE MIDSECTION! SHERIDAN’S HIT A LOT OF ATTACKS ON THE MIDSECTION, THAT MIGHT START TO LEAVE WELTS IF YOU ASK ME! Sheridan manages to break the neck crank, get her arm over Cam’s shoulder… and ROLLS HERSELF AND HER OPPONENT BACK FOR THE ROLLING RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP, BUT SENDING CAM INTO THE CORNER!!! WHAT A UNIQUE MOVE, ROLLING RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP LEAVES CAM SEATED IN THE CORNER, AND SHERIDAN SPRINTS TO THE CORNER ACROSS THE RING, DROPS TO A KNEE… AND SPRINTS BACK OVER FOR THE CANNONBALL SENTON!!! NO!!! CAMERON LIFTS BOTH KNEES, AND SHERIDAN COMES CRASHING SPINE FIRST INTO BOTH KNEES, AND CAM KEEPS SHERIDAN STACKED UP ONTO HER SHOULDERS FOR THE PIN, AND HOISTS BOTH OF HER LEGS ON THE MIDDLE ROPE!!!!!
Ref: OOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEE!!!
HYC: CAM WINS!!!
Stew: NO, THE REF CALLS IT OFF, HE SAW CAMERON’S FEET PROPPED UP ON THE MIDDLE ROPE, AND SHERIDAN KICKS OUT DESPERATELY! Cameron’s showing the first sign of frustration, and is debating with the referee, but the official saw through her dirty trick! Sheridan’s holding her tailbone, but is using the ropes support to get herself to a vertical base… and CAM CHARGES AT HER WITH THE JUMPING FOREARM!!! That almost knocks Sheridan out of the ring, but Cam snatches her by the wrist and goes for the Irish whip! Sheridan reverses the whip, Cam rebounds off the ropes, FLAPJACK BY SHERIDAN!!! SHER RUNS THE ROPES PERPENDICULAR, CAM’S ON HER HANDS AND KNEES, DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!! CAM’S LAYING FLAT ON HER FACE, SHERIDAN SPRAWLS DOWN HER BACK, COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED, LOOKING LIKE SHE’S WINDED…. SHE DRAGS CAM UP WITH A SPURT OF ENERGY HOWEVER AND BACKPEDALS NEAR THE CORNER!!! TIGER SUPLEX THROW INTO THE CORNER!!! SHER SPRINTS ACROSS THE RING TO THE FAR OPPOSITE CORNER, AND SPRINTS BACK ACROSS THE RING AGAIN!!! CANNONBALL SENTON CONNECTS!!! BOTH LADIES COLLAPSE OUT OF THE CORNER, AND SHER DESPERATELY ROLLS OVER CAM WITH THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
HYC: CAM’S FOOT SLIDES UNDER THE RING ROPE, FORCING THE REF TO WAIVE IT OFF. Cameron Ella Ava rolls underneath the ring rope sluggishly, and lets herself plop down to the ringside floor while Sheridan’s just heaving for air! Gosh, how EXHAUSTING was that sequence for Sher!?
Stew: Both of these ladies are being pushed to their physical limits! Eventually you’ve got to figure something has to give! And to your point, Rex, Cameron’s favoring that midsection. That’s been Sheridan’s point of attack for a good portion of her offense, and when that midsection compromised even to a degree, it makes it incredibly hard to draw breath, to move around; you feel it wih every last breath you take! Cameron’s being forced to feel the repercussions of allowing too many shots to the midsection… meanwhile Sheridan’s rolled herself out of the ring, and she wearily stands over Cameron who’s down to one knee… but CAM TAKES OFF WITH A RUNNING LARIAT!! SHERIDAN COUNTERS WITH A BOOT TO THE ARM! CAM WITH THE OTHER ARM GOES FOR A FOREARM! SHER DUCKS IT, FRONT WAISTLOCK, BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!!! OVERHEAD RELEASE SUPLEX, SENDING CAM SMACKING INTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE!
HYC: You saw Cam’s reaction, right!? THAT. HURT.
Stew: No question about it, and the ref’s count is up at four, Sheridan wills herself back up and back into the ring, just to roll back out and break the ref’s count at five. The official isn’t too happy about that, he wants both competitors back in the ring, but instead Sher goes for Cam as she’s crawling over the steel steps to get some leverage… and Sheridan GETS THE FRONT WAISTLOCK AGAIN!!!! ANOTHER OVERHEAD RELEASE SUPLEX SENDS CAM FLYING DAMN NEAR HALFWAY ACROSS RINGSIDE, AND LANDING SPLAT ON THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!! THOSE THIN FLOOR PADS OFFER LITTLE TO NO PROTECTION! CAMERON MIGHT NOT EVEN BE ABLE TO MOVE AFTER THAT! And this time Sheridan has a bit more wind in her sails and takes Cam back into the ring relatively quickly, and hooks both of the legs!
Ref: OOOOOOONNNEEEEEEEE!! TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Rex: Shoulder up by Cameron! Cameron Ella Ava, without question, is one of the most resilient competitors to ever compete in an EAW stage! Sheridan Muller is finding that out first hand. But, as you can clearly see, it’s best that we don’t sell Sher short either, because she’s managed to target a body part that, in the long run, should work to her advantage! Cameron’s pretty much on the defensive and she’s been that way for quite a while, and Sheridan’s sending forth a number of forearms that are just being covered up by Cam! Sher grabs fists fulls of hair… and hits A FLURRY OF KNEE THRUSTS INTO THE CHEST! A CYCLE OF KNEES ARE JUST DRIVEN INTO THE STERNUM, AND SHERIDAN PULLS HER IN FOR THE GANSO BOMB!!!!!!!! SHE’S GONNA DROP HER RIGHT ON HER NECK WITH THAT GANSO BOMB!!! BUT NO, CAMERON COUNTERS LANDING ON HER FEET NEXT TO SHERIDAN, AND HAS SHERIDAN IN A NECK CRANK!!! BITCH CAMP!!!!! SNAPMARE FACEBUSTER!!! THAT WAS PURE DESPARATION! THAT WAS CAMERON ELLA AVA ON AUTO-PILOT! AND AN ARM IS DRAPED OVER THE CHEST OF SHERIDAN MULLER!
Ref: OOOOOOONNEEEEEEE!!!! TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRR-
HYC: SHERIDAN SHOOTS THE SHOULDER UP!!! THAT’S UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
Eris: I don’t mean to be a negative nancy but there’s no way Cam really got ALL of that! She didn’t even come close to hitting it with full emphatic force, because if she did this match would be over, I guarantee it!
Stew: That’s a fair case to make, especially considering Cam couldn’t even find it in her to get a proper cover! These two ladies are on the mat huffing and puffing, just trying to drag themselves to a place of solace! Cameron Ella Ava in particular has been able to escape being dropped right on her neck with that Ganso Bomb, which could have been disastrous not for her case in this match but for the long term! Cameron however has the advantage in the race back to a vertical base, and it’s not long before Cam’s back up, watching Sheridan work her way to a knee from behind… and CAM COMES UP FROM BEHIND, AND IS LOOKING FOR ANOTHER BITCH CAMP!!!!!! BUT NO!! SHER WITH THE REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE!! SPIT KNOCKING HEEL-KICK KNOCKS CAMERON FOR A LOOP, AND SHERIDAN FLINGS HER THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Cameron Ella Ava’s right in front of us, and Sheridan rolls to the apron, but has to take a breather before even continuing to the outside of the ring, but it looks like Cameron’s not even responding! She could very well be out of commission! That begs the question, why did Sheridan boot her from the ring?
Rex: Sheridan pulls Cameron up to her feet… OHH!! AXE KICK BY SHERIDAN!!! CAM’S LAID OUT OVER THE ANNOUNCE DESK, AND SHERIDAN PROPS HER RIGHT OVER THE HOOD OF OUR TABLE. SHERIDAN LIMPS HER WAY OVER TO THE APRON……. OH BOY…. OHHHH MAN…. I THINK I KNOW THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION STEW…. SHERIDAN MULLER IS HEADED FOR THE TOP ROPE!
HYC: YOU’RE JOKING.
Rex: SHERIDAN IS CLIMBING ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP ROPE, AND CAMERON ELLA AVA IS NOT RESPONSIVE! SHE’S NOT MOVING! SHERIDAN’S GOING FOR BROKE HERE, SHE’S BEING ENCOURAGED BY THIS CROWD TO DO IT! SHERIDAN MULLER STANDS AT THE TOP TURNBUCKLE IN THE RING!
( The commentators back away )
HYC: DON’T DO IT!!!!!! DON’T DO IT!!!!
Rex: SHERIDAN MULLER DIIIIIIIIVEEESSSSS!!!! ELBOW FROM FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! SHE GOT IT!!!!!!!
Stew: NO SHE DIDNT!!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA JUMPS OUT OF THE WAAAAYYYY!!!! SHERIDAN SMACKS AGAINST OUR TABLE!!! HER BODY BOUNCES OFF OUR TABLE AND SMASHES HALF OF THE EQUIPMENT ON OUR TABLE, BUT IT REMAINS STANDING!!! SHERIDAN MULLER HAS BEEN BROKEN IN HALF!!! SHE TOOK A RISK, BUT IT WAS ALL FOUR NAUGHT! SHE’S GOING TO PAY FOR IT!
Eris: THAT’S WHAT SHE GETS. SHE MADE A STUPID MISTAKE, AND THAT’S GOING TO BE A MISTAKE SHE REGRETS FOR THE REST OF HER CAREER!
Stew: CAMERON ELLA AVA, EITHER BY PLAYING POSSUM OF BY ONE LAST DITCH EFFORT TO AVOID CATASTROPHE HAS ESCAPED WHAT WOULD HAVE CERTAINLY BEEN THE END OF THIS MATCH. CAMERON’S COMPLETELY WINDED, BUT STILL ON HER FEET, AND NOW SHE DRAGS SHERIDAN OFF OF OUR TABLE AND OUT OF THE SCRAP HEAP TO SEND HER BACK INTO THE RING.
HYC: CAM DRAGS HERSELF IN THE RING NOW, AND SHE FINALLY GETS A COVER ON HER OPPONENT!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRR-
Rex: A KICK OUT AT 2 AND 7/8THS!!! BY SOME MIRACLE, THIS MATCH CONTINUES!
Stew: BUT WHAT’S LEFT? WHAT CAN EITHER OF THESE TWO POSSIBLY MUSTER UP FROM INSIDE??? Cameron Ella Ava and Sheridan Muller have just zapped EVERYTHING out of each other! Cam is just thinking in her head what more does she have to do?? And as for Sheridan, I have no idea how she’s even managing being in this much pain! Cameron drags herself up to her feet, and bends over to drag Sheridan up by the wrist as well… she’s literally anchoring herself with her hand wrapped around Sheridan’s wrist to pull Sher up to her feet… and CAMERON HITS THE GODDESS’ TOUCH!!!!! NO!!! SHERIDAN DUCKS IT, CAM HITS THE MAT, AND SHERIDAN DEADLIFTS HER UP FROM THE MAT FROM BEHIND FOR THE DEADLIFT SHERPLEX!!!! DEADLIFT SHERPLEX!!!!! BY SOME ACT OF GOD, SHER’S GOT CAM LIFTED FROM THE MAT, BUT SHE DOESN’T HAVE NEARLY ENOUGH IN HER TO COMPLETE THE SUPLEX! SHERIDAN IS COMPLETELY SPENT! SHE HAS NO STRENGTH INSIDE OF HER, ALL OF IT’S GONE!
Rex: CAM WITH A DEBILITATING BACK ELBOW! THAT BREAKS THE WAISTLOCK! Sheridan drops to a knee… and CAM DRAGS HER BACK UP TO HER FEET WITH A NECK CRANK, AND IS GOING FOR ANOTHER BITCH CAMP!!!!! BUT LOOK AT THIS!! SHERIDAN STOPS THE BITCH CAMP WITH HER OWN NECK CRANK ON CAMERON!!!! BOTH LADIES HAVE EACH OTHER IN A STANDING NECK CRANK, REFUSING TO RELEASE!!!!! THEY HAVE REACHED A STALEMATE!!! THIS IS SO CLOSE, LITERALLY ANY SUDDEN MOVE COULD ALTER THE DECISION OF THIS MATCH! THE TWO OF THEM ARE WRENCHING BACK ON THEIR NECK CRANKS, AND TRYING TO MAKE THE SLIGHTEST TURN…….AND IT’S CAMERON WHO RELEASES, HITS AN ELBOW! SHERIDAN DUCKS IT!!! REAR WAISTLOCK!!!! SHERPLEX!!!!!! RIGHT ONTO THE NECK!!!!! CAMERON DROPPED RIGHT ON HER NECK WITH THE GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!! PINNING BRIDGE!!!!!!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOONNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Surfacing” by Slipknot plays, and both Sheridan and Cameron lay flat on their backs, gasping for air, before Sheridan Muller is helped up by the referee and has her arm raised in victory. )
RA: HERE IS YOUR WINNER OF THE 2016 VIXENS CUP TOURNAMENT…. SHHHHERRRRIIIDAAAAAAANNNN MMUUUUUULLLLEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!
Stew: SHERIDAN MULLER HAS WON IT!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE THE TEST OF FORTITUDE THAT THESE TWO PUT EACH OTHER THROUGH!?
Rex: BLOWN AWAY, I AM ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A VIXENS CONTEST LIKE THIS… WOW….
( Sheridan is too exhausted to even react, but the Vixen’s Cup Trophy Cup is brought into the ring by workers, and the official hands her the miniature Vixen’s Cup Trophy. Sheridan drags herself back to her feet again, and she limps over to the Vixen’s Cup Trophy Cup, and leans on it for support as confetti begins to fall from the ceiling. )
HYC: MOTHER OF GOD! WHAT AN AMAZING SHOW! WHAT AN AMAZING WEEKEND! WOW!! NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER, EEEEVER DOUBT THE VIXENS OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING!
Stew: THIS IS TRULY SOMETHING THIS YOUNG WOMAN HAS TRAINED FOR HER ENTIRE LIFE! WHAT THIS VIXEN’S CUP REPRESENTS IS OPPORTUNITY, AND SHERIDAN MULLER HAS SIEZED THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME! GOODNIGHT, FROM TORONTO!
( Sheridan Muller musters up enough energy to hold up her trophy with the confetti continuing to fall from the rafters… the closed captioning appears on the screen, and soon after the show fades to black. )
