( EAW Intro plays )
( We get a recap to Territorial Invasion from last weekend, highlighting many major moments for Empire. It first starts off with the Specialist Championship match featuring Tyler Wolfe and Remi Skyfire, highlighting all of the brutal moments of the match and capturing Tyler’s perseverance and will to win that lead her to capturing the Specialist Title for the first time in her career! It follows up with the New Breed Championship Fatal-4-Way match, featuring Raven Roberts representing Empire against Dynasty’s Andy Lush, Showdown’s Drake King, and Voltage’s Xander Payne. It displays Raven’s dominant performance in the match, and shows her capturing the victory to become the first woman to hold the EAW New Breed Championship! We also get a recap of the EAW Womens Championship match, with Cloud Matsuda and Daisy Thrash having a thrilling back and forth until Madison Kaline got involved. We then see Astraea Jordan chase Madison out of the vicinity, and allowing the match to continue until Cloud could successfully retain her EAW Women’s Championship. )
( Empire intro video plays featuring “Girl Gang” by Leikeli47 )
( CUT TO: The Quicken Loans Arena, as we get a panoramic shot of the supercharged, sold out audience cheering and holding up their copious signs as “Girl Gang” blares from the sound system and pyro rockets off from the stage to hype the crowd. )
( SCREEN BAR: CLEVELAND, OH )
SG1: We are just one week removed from the blockbuster event known as EAW Territorial Invasion, and what an enormous night it was for Empire! With TI in the rear view mirror and Bloodletter on the distant horizon the atmosphere has become chaotic to say the least, convictions are at an all time high here on the purple brand! But to begin this evening let’s take it over to Empire co-GMs, Flannery McCoy and Kendra Shamez who are in the ring with us for a special announcement.
( TIME SKIP: We hear “Black Or White” by Michael Jackson over the sound system and see Flannery McCoy and Kendra Shamez standing together in the ring, both equipped with a mic, dressed in their usual business attire and GM lanyards. “Black Or White” dies down and the crowd cheers for Flannery and Kendra. )
Flannery McCoy: HELLO CLEVELAND!
( Crowd erupts in applause. )
Flannery: Very happy to see you all here tonight. I know I can speak for Kendra when I say that after watching our incredible Empire talent do what they did at Territorial Invasion, I have never been more proud to be the general manager of this show. I want to thank all of you ladies who went out there and proved beyond a shadow of a doubt why Empire is the premiere brand of Season 12.
Kendra Shamez: Absolutely, special shout outs to the Jaded Wolfe Hearts for putting their bodies and their careers on the line and putting on a show stealing performance in the main event.
( HUGE ovation for the Jaded Wolfe Hearts )
Flannery: And congratulations to Tyler Wolfe for putting on the overall performance of the night, in my mind, by not only competing in War Games but being able to come away with the EAW Specialist Championship against a VERY game Remi McQueen.
( Another ovation for Tyler Wolfe )
Kendra: We’d be remiss if we didn’t give a shout out to the Women’s World Champion as well, who also pulled double duty and still managed to retain her title against all odds. Kudos.
( Major pop for Cloud Matsuda )
Flannery: And probably the result of the night for me… major congratulations to RAVEN ROBERTS for bringing home a new title to Empire’s trophy case by becoming the first woman to ever hold the EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!
( HUGE ovation for the accomplishment of Raven Roberts, with a few boos sprinkled in. )
Kendra: Like Flannery said, we are so proud of the girls on Empire for what you accomplished last weekend. This was truly night and day from Empire’s representation in 2017, and you girls back there have proven that the more opportunities we get as a brand, the further we’re gonna run with them.
Flannery: Couldn’t have put it better myself. Of course, while it’s great to reflect on how big Territorial Invasion was for us, we aren’t only out here to focus on that. Part of the reason why we’re out here tonight is because next week’s Empire will be the first Empire in the month of October, and October will always be a significant month for our show because…. *sigh* it will mark the anniversary to the sudden and tragic passing of one of the most unforgettable people to ever walk through these doors here in EAW, Brody Sparks.
( The crowd becomes silent. )
Kendra: It is really, truly difficult to relive those moments of grief that we all felt from one year ago. I can’t even believe how quickly time has passed since then. Brody was such an important person to EAW as a community and as a family, and her impact goes beyond words. There’s no way either of us can describe what she meant to so many of us, but we do want to take a look back and remember Brody for the incredible person that she was.
( Flannery and Kendra turn to the titantron, and a video package comes on the screen: )
( We get a video package showing highlights of Brody Sparks’ most important moments in EAW, and many things in between. We see her debut on EAW Battleground where she was victorious in her first match, and we get a display of her funny and eccentric side during her earliest months with her constantly taunting fans, opponents, and even authority. We see Brody’s rise in the Women’s division, including her return at Territorial Invasion 2016 that drew the biggest fanfare of the night. It shows her progress all the way up until Road to Redemption 2016, when she captured the EAW Specialist Championship in an Elimination Chamber against 5 of Empire’s best. The video package takes a lighter turn, showing Brody outside of the ring and her ability to make many friends and reach out to many people that were close to her. We see Brody’s hilarious on and off relationship with Madison Kaline, playfully flirting with HRDO, and get several clips of her goofing off with male and female members of the EAW roster who she befriended such as Cloud Matsuda, Kendra Shamez, Astraea Jordan, Ryan Marx, Harvey Yorke, Andrea Valentine, Mr. DEDEDE, Ronn Banks, the Ava sisters and many, many others. It highlights her ability to make friends and be close to people, and shows her sense of humor both backstage and on-screen with her lingo that most people adopted. We get continual highlights of her Specialist Championship reign, her title retentions and some of her most glorious victories in the year of 2017. The video package ends with her at Pain for Pride 10, making her entrance and holding up her championship to the enormous sea of people until the footage freeze-frames and graphical text shows up on the screen saying, “Thank You Brody”. )
( Cut back to the Quicken Loans Arena, and an emotional crowd is chanting: )
Crowd: THANK YOU BRODY! (clap)
( Kendra and Flannery wait for the chants to die down, with Flannery nearly on the verge of tears after watching the video package. )
Flannery: We couldn’t have asked God for a more amazing person to gift us with, and that is why next week on the October 4th edition of Empire, we will officially be dedicating the entire broadcast to Brody Sparks. Everything from the stage to the graphics to the content on the show will be remodeled in her honor, and throughout the night we will allow people to reflect on Brody and what she meant to them.
Kendra: It’s going to be an exciting and eventful show, don’t worry it’ll still be LOADED with action including the 3 on 3 ‘Winner Takes All’ match featuring the trifecta of champions, Jaded Wolfe Hearts, defending their titles against The Pride lead by Remi McQueen.
Flannery: We can’t wait for it and we really hope you enjoy it as well guys! That’s it for now, enjoy tonight’s show!
( “Black Or White” comes back on and Flannery and Kendra both take their leave. We cut over to the Empire announcers desk, where Alicia Amby and SG1 are seated by with their name plates on the screen. )
Alicia Amby: October 4th is going to be one of the most bittersweet EAW broadcasts, it’ll be sobering to say the least but from the way Flannery and Kendra make it seem we can also expect an exciting card.
SG1: From what I know Alicia they plan to go all out for this one, I wouldn’t want to miss it for the world! But that’s next week, still to come tonight in our main event we have Empire’s most dangerous mistress, Madison Kaline going up against the New Breed Champion, Raven Roberts!
Alicia: This could be a scary, scary match up SG. Tonight we’re also planning on hearing from Daisy Thrash, who is in action tonight as well as she goes one on one with the former Specialist Champion, Remi McQueen. These two women will both be coming off title match losses, so they both have something to prove. That’s going to be a must-see!
( “Black Or White” dies down after the co-GMs exit through the curtain. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Cori Simmons: Tonight’s opening contest is scheduled for one fall!
( ‘All Star’ by Smash Mouth blares throughout the arena as Harlow Reichert walks out to thunderous boos )
Cori Simmons: INTRODUCING FIRST! FROM CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND.. WEIGHING IN AT 155 POUNDS……….. HAAAAARRRRRLOOOOOWWWW REEEIIIICHEEEERTTTT!!!!!
Alicia Amby: Week after week, Harlow Reichert has been walking out to the Empire ring and outperform her opponents. She has consistently been successful and it will only be a matter of time until’ she has championship gold around her waist.
SG1: It’s quite funny because the only reason Harlow is involved in the industry of professional wrestling is because her parents told her to get a job. Instead of getting a job at the office or the local grocery, her workspace lies in the squared circle and she continues to outwork everyone else.
( Once Cori Simmons scans the crowd in attendance, she walks over to her corner while ‘High Hopes’ by Panic! At the Disco blasts through the speaker. Jocelyn Sky shoots from the curtains with a vibrant smile planted on her face. She walks down the ramp, high fiving the fans. )
Alicia Amby: This women might put the end to Harlow’s never-ending dominance. Even though her contagious smile is always present, there is a heart inside that is always open to challenges and tonight, Harlow Reichert is a formidable challenge for Jocelyn Sky.
SG1: Yes Alicia, Jocelyn Sky has just made her name known on Elite Answers Wrestling and if she overcomes the challenge known as Harlow Reichert, that could do wonders for her.
( Jocelyn Sky slides into the ring, staring into the dead eyes of Harlow Reichert before walking over to her corner )
( DING! DING! DING! )
SG1: This match is underway as both women circle around the ring, looking at each other. Harlow jumps down to grab her legs! But Sky stands her ground, catching Harlow and holding her down with a crocodile hold! Sky keeping the hold tightened as Harlow attempts to power out of it! Harlow holds onto Sky, using her to rebound off the ropes but Sky quickly transitions it into a sidelock!
Alicia Amby: The dominant Harlow Reichert being dominated right now when it comes to these exchange of holds! Harlow gets her head out of the hold and grabs her for the back suplex! It doesn’t work as Sky sends down shoulder strikes to the back of her head! Sky wraps her right arm around Harlow’s head, running with her for a bulldog! But Harlow lets go of her and makes Sky go face first into the ropes! She rebounds off the ropes! HARLOW LIFTS HER UP FOR THE BACK SUPLEX! IT CONNECTS!!!!

HARLOW CHARGES INTO HER!!! SKY OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A SUPERKICK!!!!!!!!! SHE RUNS THE ROPES AND JUMPS UP!!!! BUT HARLOW DODGES IT AND ROLLS HER UP!!!!!!! SUPERKICK!!!!!
Alicia Amby: Harlow stuns her with a superkick as she picks her up! SHE HOOKS HER UP, LIFTING HER UP!!!! SKY JUMPS OUT OF THE BUTTERFLY HOLD AND BRUISES THE TEMPLE OF HARLOW WITH A YAKUZA KICK! Sky jumps onto the ropes, springboards off it and spins around!!!!! HARLOW WITH A DROPKICK IN MID AIR!!!!!

Alicia Amby: Sky desperately and tediously crawls over to the damaged Harlow for the cover but Harlow rolls out to the apron side of the ring! Harlow being smart and avoiding the pinfall as Sky’s chances of winning are now obsolete! Sky gets up to her feet and walks over to Harlow! HARLOW WITH A SHOULDER THRUST TO THE MIDSECTION OF SKY!!!!!

SG1: JUST TAKE MY MONEY!! JUST TAKE IT!!!! I WILL GO BANKRUPT JUST TO SEE HARLOW REICHERT DO WHAT SHE DOES BEST AND THAT IS WRESTLE!!! ANOTHER IMPRESSIVE DISPLAY OF RESILIENCE AND HEART FROM THESE TWO WOMEN!!!
Alicia Amby: I got to agree with you! This match was truly amazing and we are just getting started tonight! Empire is full of talented individuals who can put on great matches and these two women embody that! Harlow Reichert may have walked out of this match as the winner, but Jocelyn Sky will be known as the women who made Harlow go over her limit!
( We cut to Daisy Thrash pacing back and forth in front of a camera outside of the Quicken Loans Arena. Looking fired up, the Razorblade Snowflake stops pacing in front of the camera and begins speaking )
Daisy Thrash: I was this close (she holds up her thumb and forefinger barely apart).. This close from beating Cloud for the unified Women’s World title…and that’s after Maddie and Astraea stuck their noses in the middle of the match! Cloud had to throw everything she had at me, and it still was barely enough.
( Daisy balls her hand into a fist and slams it into the palm of her other hand )
Daisy Thrash: Don’t think we’re done though, Cloud! We’re not, Daisy Thrash isn’t going anywhere! I’ve done this for too long! I’ve been held back, over looked, told that “Hey, Daisy, it’s just not your time yet, someday though”…NO MORE! I’m gonna be World champion, you mark my words on it! I don’t care if I have to go through Cloud, the Jaded Hearts, Astraea, Maddie, or the whole Empire roster! It’s time for me to show everyone what I can do!
( Daisy stops herself mid thought and holds up a cautioning finger. )
Daisy Thrash: No, matter of fact, you wanna see what I can do? Go back and watch my match with Cloud. Watch as I put the World’s Champion on her heels for the majority of that match, watch as I took everything she dealt out and came back for more! Still not convinced? Still not moved by that performance? Watch my match against Remi McQueen tonight. She thinks she’s got something to be mad about just because Raven Roberts took her fiance out? I’ll give her something to be upset about, when I hand her this piping hot L.
( She storms off camera. )
( COMMERCIAL BREAK. )
(“The Enemy” — The Commonjets plays as the crowd reactions positively as Mali Evans stands on top of the ramp with a grin and determined look on her face.)
Cori Simmons: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL–
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Cori Simmons: Introducing first, representing The Pride, from Birmingham, England, she is the “Suplex Queen”, MAAAAAAAAAAAAALIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII EVVVAAAAANNNNNNNNNSSSSS!!
Alicia Amby: This young woman hasn’t had the best luck with collecting victories on Empire! She managed to get a victory over Clarissa a few weeks back, but Mali would love nothing more, but to add on victories and prove why she is deserving to take part on the Winner Takes All Match next week!
SG1: Mali Evans is a talented young woman! She is probably one of the toughest females in the roster! She deserves more than what she has been given, but a victory over her opponent could change all of that!
(“Roll With Me” — Charli XCX plays as the crowd roars in cheers for Andrea Valentine, who walks out and poses on top of the ramp without her Openweight Championship. She has some tape wrapped around her ribs. Andrea still has a smile on her face as she tags the hands of the fans on her way to the ring.)
Cori Simmons: Introducing her opponent, from Orlando, Florida, she is “The Heart of Empire, ANNNNNNNDRRRRREEEEEEEEEAAAAAAA VAAAAALLLLLEEEEEENNNNNNTIIINNNNNNEEEE!!
SG1: Andrea Valentine’s plans of challenging Stephanie Matsuda for the Women’s World Championship will not happen anytime soon thanks to Lars Grier, who managed to capture the Openweight Championship from her at Territorial Invasion! However, I do not think this will keep Andrea down for long! This young woman still has a bright future in EAW and this one loss will not say otherwise!
Alicia Amby: Andrea Valentine had some damage to her ribs at Territorial Invasion. I hope that doesn’t impact her performance in this match!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Alicia Amby: The battle of the blondes is underway! Former Openweight Champion, Andrea Valentine takes on The Pride’s, Mali Evans! Andrea extends a hand to Mali as Mali smiles and accepts the handshake before the two women take a step back before launching at each other and locking up! Mali quickly goes behind Andrea and grabs onto her waist! It looks like the Suplex Queen is going for one of her suplexes! Mali with a German! No! Andrea manages to catch herself on her feet! Mali turns around! Andrea connects with a back kick to Mali’s stomach! No! Mali manages to catch Andrea’s foot! Andrea counters with an enziguri and knocks the younger woman to the side! Mali finds herself on her knees as the enziguri was not enough to knock the eighteen year old to the ground! Andrea bounces from the ropes to connect with a low dropkick as Mali falls onto her back! Andrea Valentine goes for the cover!
Jesse Carlton: ONE!
SG1: Mali Evans gets her shoulder up as Andrea Valentine gets back up to her feet! She grabs Mali up back to her feet! Mali throws a forearm to Andrea’s way before following that with a spinning heel kick! Andrea instantly gets knocked to her back as the Suplex Queen has found the energy to continue on this match! Mali goes for the cover on Andrea, but Andrea manages to kick out and find herself on her knee! Mali quickly keeps up with her momentum with a superkick to Andrea who is sat down now! No! Andrea manages to duck as she grabs Mali’s leg before sweeping it. The younger woman finds herself on her back before The Heart of Empire superkicks Mali Evans the moment she gets into a seated position! Andrea gets Mali into a seated position before bouncing from the rope and connecting with a crossbody to Mali! Mali goes down as Andrea goes for the cover in the process!
Jesse Carlton: ONE!
Alicia Amby: Mali Evans manages to rise up to her feet! She has Andrea Valentine up! What strength from Mali! SHE MANAGED TO PICK UP ANDREA THE MOMENT SHE CONNECTED WITH THE CROSSBODY! MALI IS SHOWING OFF HER STRENGTH BEFORE SHE THROWS ANDREA BACK WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX! Andrea is holding her ribs in pain as it seems like she landed harsly thanks to that! Mali does not waste her time going after Andrea before picking her up and putting her on the top rope! Andrea is sitting on the top rope before Mali gets up in the second turnbuckle! SHE IS THROWING SOME FISTS TO ANDREA’S HEAD! ANDREA IS TRYING TO BLOCK HER HEAD FROM THESE SHOTS, BUT MALI IS SUCCESSFUL IN THROWING THIS SHOTS ON THE TOP OF ANDREA’S HEAD! IT SEEMS LIKE ANDREA IS TRYING TO GET MALI’S HEAD IN A HEADLOCK! SHE IS THROWING SHOTS ON THE YOUNGER WOMAN’S BACK! MALI BEGINS TO WEAKEN AS ANDREA MANAGES TO APPLY THE HEADLOCK! I AM NOT QUITE POSITIVE WITH WHAT ANDREA INTENDS TO DO, BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO LOOK GOOD! ANDREA GETS MALI SAT DOWN IN THE TURNBUCKLE AND ANDREA STANDING ON THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE! ANDREA JUMPS FROM THE TOP ROPE AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A DDT ON MALI FROM THE TOP ROPE! IT SEEMS LIKE MALI LANDED IN HER HEAD HARSHLY! MALI IS SLOWLY TRYING TO GET IN A ALL FOURS POSITION BEFORE ANDREA BOUNCES FROM THE TOP ROPE! ANDREA CONNECTS WITH A LOW DROPKICK! MALI GOES DOWN AS ANDREA GETS MALI BACK UP TO HER FEET! ANDREA BOUNCES FROM THE SAME ROPES AGAIN!
SG1: Andrea Valentine spins herself around before connecting with a octopus stretch! The octopus stretch connects completely! The Suplex Queen is struggling for a way out of the move! If Mali Evans can’t get out of the move, she will be forced to tap out! I can see how much Andrea wants to redeem herself from losing her Openweight Championship at Territorial Invasion! ANDREA CONTINUES TO APPLY PRESSURE TO THE HOLD! MALI EVANS LOOKS LIKE SHE IS FADING AWAY! MALI DOES NOT WANT TO QUIT! SHE REFUSES TO TAP OUT!

Mali holds onto Andrea’s arm before whipping her to the corner! Andrea crashes onto the corner, but it was not enough to have her slide down into a seated position! Andrea holds onto both sides as Mali runs and connects with a back elbow to Andrea! Andrea’s head goes back as the elbow landed at Andrea’s face! Mali takes a few steps back before running and connecting with a low dropkick to Andrea in the corner!
Alicia Amby: Mali Evans pulls Andrea by her leg and goes for the cover!
Jesse Carlton: ONE! TWO!
Alicia Amby: Andrea Valentine kicks out at two! Mali Evans cannot let this new momentum slip away from her! Mali gets Andrea back up to her feet! Mali bounces from the ropes quickly and connects with a super swinging neckbreaker on Andrea! Andrea finds herself on the mat again! Mali tries to go for another cover there, but Andrea is not going to let that happen as she kicks herself out of the cover! Andrea finds herself on her knees as Mali Evans gets to a standing position! Mali gets Andrea in a headlock! Andrea gets to one knee as Mali maintains the headlock! Andrea tries to push Mali forward and get the headlock out of her neck! Mali seems like she has a pretty good hold on a the headlock! Andrea is trying to use whatever strength she has at the moment to get away from the headlock! ANDREA MANAGES TO GET OUT OF THE HEADLOCK, BUT IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL AS MALI COUNTERS WITH A BACK ELBOW TO ANDREA! ANDREA TURNS AROUND IN RESPONSE AS MALI SPRINGS FROM THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE! ANDREA FALLS TO HER BACK AS BOTH OF THE BLONDES ARE ON THE FLOOR! MALI IS THE FIRST ONE TO HER FEET AS ANDREA SHORTLY GETS BACK UP TO HER FEET AFTER! MALI QUICKLY GRABS MALI BY HER WAIST AND CONNECTS WITH A BELLY-TO-BACK SUPLEX!

What does Mali need to do in order to defeat Andrea? Mali gets Andrea back to her feet! It seems like the Suplex Queen is grabbing Andrea by her waist again! German suplex on Andrea! Andrea goes down! It seems like Mali is gesturing for the end of this match She grabs Andrea back up! MALI EVANS IS GOING FOR THE MALI DRIVER I, THE MICHINOKU DRIVER! NO!

MALI GOES DOWN ON HER BACK AS ANDREA GOES FOR THE TOP ROPE! ANDREA CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE BEFORE SITUATION HERSELF! MALI IS ON HER BACK AS SHE IS PERFECTLY POSITIONED!
Alicia Amby: Andrea Valentine from the top rope! V-Day! The diving somersault seated senton on Mali Evans!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“The Enemy” plays again as Mali Evans cannot believe that she managed to defeat Andrea Valentine. She gets to a standing position as Jesse Carlton raises her hand in victory.)
Cori Simmons: The winner of this match, MAAAAAALIIIIIIIIIIII EVVVVAAAANNNNNNSSSSSS!!
SG1: MALI EVANS WITH A VICTORY OVER THE FORMER OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION! THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPRESSIVE VICTORIES IN THAT YOUNG WOMAN’S CAREER! Mali cannot even believe what she managed to do!
Alicia Amby: Andrea Valentine felt her rib injury towards the end of the match! You can tell that Andrea was in pain! She kept fighting through the pain, but it was not enough to get the victory!
(Mali Evans extends her hand for Andrea Valentine to accept. Andrea accepts the handshake as Mali checks on Andrea to see if she was alright. Andrea nods as she rolls underneath the bottom rope as she holds her ribs as she walks towards the top of the ramp. Mali is celebrating her victory inside the ring.)
SG1: Mali Evans is looking good approaching the Three-On-Three Winner Takes All Match next week! If she manages to surprise people like she did tonight, she may be on her way to win her first championship!
( Camera heads backstage. We see Cloud Matsuda is waiting backstage next to the door to Kendra Shamez’s office, seemingly waiting for something or someone. Astraea comes marching up to her, eying the EAW Women’s Championship on Cloud’s shoulder. )
Astraea: See you managed to keep Daisy from taking my belt…good job, Cloud, but don’t get cozy with it, cause soon it’s gonna be around my waist!
( Cloud pushes off the wall and stands face to face with Astraea )
Cloud: It’s isn’t your belt yet sweets, and it’s not gonna be for as long as I have something to say about it.
( Astraea smirks and takes a step closer to Cloud. She’s about to start talking when a voice cuts her off. )
Kendra: What are you two doing?!
( Sitting at behind her desk looking at the open doorway that Cloud and Astraea are standing in front of is Kendra Shamez. Her brow is creased and her face colored by annoyance as she looks at the two rivals. )
Kendra: Seriously, if you two are going to do…whatever this is, do it elsewhere, I’ve got important business to attend to and I don’t need a fight breaking out in front of my office!
( Cloud steps back from Astraea and faces Kendra. )
Cloud: Well, actually I wanted to talk to you…see, Maddie has been sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong, and I’m tired of it! I want Maddie!
( Astraea, not to be outdone, cuts in. )
Astraea: Oh no, Cloud doesn’t get Maddie, that bitch has stuck her nose in my business too, and I’m not done with her yet! Kendra, I already took the bitch’s head once, this time I’ll put it on my fucking wall!
( Inhaling deeply in annoyance Kenda shakes her head at the two competitors standing in her doorway. )
Kendra: Why don’t you guys go ask Flannery?
Cloud: I already did. First person I went to when I got here, believe me I wouldn’t be coming to you unless it were a last resort.
( Kendra fake-smiles. )
Cloud: She rambled on about how the board doesn’t want it to happen, a bunch of other dumb mess. It’s clear Flannery’s too afraid to let one of the board’s little pet projects be touched, but I know you have enough ‘cache’ to let me put hands on that broad.
Kendra: Look, Cloud, You want Maddie, right?
( She gives Cloud a questioning look. )
Cloud: Yes I do, I’m gonna make her pay for sticking her nose in my business!
( Kendra waves away Clouds words. )
Kendra: Right, fine, whatever, Astraea, you wan –
( Astraea balls her fists and cuts off Kendra. )
Astraea: YES! I’m gonna fuck that bitch up!
Kendra: Fine, you two want her? The only way you get her is if you stop trying to kill each other and work together. Otherwise no deal!
( Astraea eyes Cloud who is rolling her eyes. )
Astraea: Fine! Cloud, me and you ain’t done, but till we get Maddie…
( Cloud warily looks at Astraea )
(She extends her hand only for Astraea to give her a smirk.)
Astraea: C’mon, let’s go get Maddie. Then I’m coming after my title!
( The two storm off as Kendra shakes her head in frustration. )
( COMMERCIAL BREAK. )
( We open up backstage in the Pride locker room, Layla is lacing her boots while Mali Evans is icing one of her elbows, still in her ring gear, with a towel around her neck. Remi McQueen walks through the door accompanied by Constance Blevins, who looks nervous. Remi glares at Layla. )
Remi: I’ve come to a decision…
(Remi gestures to Constance.)
Remi: Constance here is going to become a member of The Pride. She’s perfect for it, skill and attitude wise.
( Mali smiles and approaches Constance. The two move off and start talking quietly as Remi sits down in front of her locker. Layla looks from Constance to Remi and shrugs. )
Layla: Sure, she could work! We’ll talk it out and see if she’s maybe a fit!
( As she finishes tying her boots, Layla stands, intending to walk over to Constance, but is met instead by Remi. )
Remi: No, Layla, we won’t talk about it. Constance is in. I made the Pride and I decide whose in it…
( Remi steps closer to Layla, putting them nose to nose. )
Remi: Less, of course, you wanna try to take the driver’s wheel from me?
( Remi stares into the face of Layla who, though unsure of what is going on, doesn’t back down. )
Layla: No, Remi…no, that’s a good idea! We need someone new anyway, since Revy…well, we have an open spot.
( Layla smiles uncomfortably and tries to step around Remi, but is blocked again. )
Remi: No, she’s not taking Revy’s spot. Revy was in Revy’s spot. Constance is in her own spot, and you know what that means? It means she’s in the all or nothing match next week.
( Noticing the tension between Remi and Layla, Mali and Constance stop talking and watch on nervously. Layla seems shocked at Remi’s statement. )
Layla: B-but she just got here…look, Remi, I’m sorry that I let Revy get hurt, bu-
( Remi bangs her fist into the nearest locker door. )
Remi: Stop trying to make Revy’s broken neck about you. Stop. It. Like I told you, Layla, either get your head on straight, or sit on the bench for a while!
( Remi storms over to her locker and starts going through her gear. Blinking back tears, Layla takes a step forward. )
Layla: Revy was my friend too, Remi! I hate what happened to her, I hate what Raven has become…you don’t have to take it out on us though! I thought we were a team!
( Remi shakes her head, still looking away from Layla. )
Remi: So did Revy…figure out where you stand, Layla, and figure it out quick. (to Mali) As for you Mali, you hold down the fort. I’m going to go out there and get shit handled while the pre-workout’s still kicking.
( Remi exits the room leaving behind a stunned Layla, while Constance and Mali exchange awkward looks. )
( Return to ringside. )
Cori: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
( “Earth People” by Doctor Octagon hits as Remi McQueen makes her entrance )
Cori: Introducing first, making her way to the ring from Somerset, Kentucky, weighing in at 140 pounds… REMMMIIIIIIII MMMCCCCQQQUUEEEENNNNNNNNNN!!!
SG1: Remi comes off a tough loss at TI, and she sure as hell doesn’t look in the mood to screw around. She and Tyler Wolfe had maybe the match of the night for the Specialists Championship but despite a seriously strong showing, Remi came up short. She’s looking to bounce back and build some new momentum.
Alicia: Especially considering she’s only one week away from the ‘Winner Takes All’ match in the main event of next week’s Empire.
(“Raise Hell” by Dorothy hits as Daisy Thrash makes her entrance)
Cori: And her opponent, making her way to the ring from Seattle, Washington, weighing in at 115 pounds… DAAAAIIISSSYYYY TTTHHHHRRAAASSSHHHH!!!
Alicia: And Daisy is also looking to start building tonight after coming up short against Stephanie Matsuda in the Unified Women’s World Championship match. The bout was far from clean thanks to Madison Kaline who we will see later tonight. But you know Daisy has to be laser focused tonight.
SG1: Well both of these women believe they are ready to take the next step in their careers. The referee is set and we are underway.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Alicia: Daisy moves toward the center of the ring, but it seems Remi wants to circle around. She seems to want to get a feel in this matchup. Both women are still a bit beat up from their battles last week. Expect to see some energy conservation. They’re both probably considering the long game of the match. Remi paces the ropes, watching for an opening. Daisy stands ready near the center of the ring. Remi sees Daisy isn’t gonna move and begins to inch toward the center. The two begin to move closer and Remi puts her hand up, looking for the test of strength. Daisy seems hesitant but moves in. The two lace hands and immediately the larger Remi gains the upper hand. Daisy gives up about twenty five pounds and three inches in this match.
SG1: BUT LOOK AT DAISY! She slid her feet underneath Remi and between her legs! She pulled McQueen through into a rollup!
Remi kicks out! Crafty move from the experienced Daisy! She’s small but she knows how to move! Remi stands up slow, keeping her eyes on Thrash. Daisy moves in for a lock up! But Remi deflects her arms and lands a clean jab to the jaw of Daisy who is stunned! Remi follows up with a quick roundhouse body kick! And another kick to the side of Daisy’s knee! Daisy tries to close the gap! Oh but there’s a quick knee strike to the gut! Daisy is proficient herself at striking but the Muay Thai experience gives Remi the edge!
Alicia: And Remi looks like she wants to capitalize! She grabs Daisy’s arm and turns it! FLASH KICK!
SG1: MISSED! Daisy threw herself backwards at the last second! And Remi just crashes down hard to the canvas and she’s clutching her side! She took a number of those Saito suplexes last week! I’d bet her ribs and shoulder are still sore from the landings! And here comes Daisy to capitalize! She drops onto Remi and rolls herself over! DAISY CHAIN IS APPLIED! The Muta Lock is stretching Remi’s spine! And look how Daisy is pulling it just to the side! That’s adding flexion to the damaged rib cage of Remi McQueen for a little extra pain! Remi is clawing at the mat! She sees the ropes but can’t quite reach them! Inch by inch! She’s desperate to survive! She’s nearly there!
Alicia: But Daisy just released the hold! She pops up and hits the ropes! No sense in clinging to a hold that’s gonna get broken! She’s looking to turn up the heat! But Remi climbs up quick too! I think she realized Daisy got off early and didn’t want to be caught off guard no matter the pain! She’s trying to get back on offense! But Daisy has positionherself! Look out! EAT THE RICH! No! Remi ducked the spinning wheel kick! And she follow through! Using the momentum from Daisy’s rotation to lift her into the fireman’s carry! PSYCHO CRUSHER! The GTS Connects!
SG1: BUT THE RISING KNEE FROM THE MOVE KNOCKS THE SMALLER DAISY UP ONTO HER FEET AND TUMBLING BACKWARDS! She falls out of the ring through the bottom and second rope! Remi scrambles to keep her in the ring but can’t catch her as Daisy falls to the outside! Remi was locked in the submission and had to climb towards the ropes, but getting so close to the ropes may have just cost her the match! Remi looks at Daisy’s unconscious body in disbelief!
Alicia: But now Remi tells the referee to start counting! A win is still a win in the books! The referee looks like he wants to check on Daisy but proceeds to count!
Daisy is motionless on the outside. Remi takes a seat, cross legged in the ring. She wants to see what’s gonna happen.
Still no movement from Daisy. She could have landed on her head or something when she fell.
DAISY IS AWAKE! She’s just opened her eyes and is trying to figure out where she is! She turns and sees the ring!
Daisy rolls over and begins to push herself up! She’s up to her knees!
Daisy has one foot on the ground and Remi McQueen has seen enough. She stands up and looks as Daisy gets her other foot under her!
And now Remi slides out of the ring, breaking the count! Daisy still looks staggered but she’s back in the game! Remi rushes Daisy— WHO SLIPS OUT OF THE WAY AS REMI COLLIDES WITH THE RING POST! And now here comes Daisy! Landing shots on Remi who was laying in her shots earlier! Remi gets her guard up but after her shoulder and face just collided with the post on top of her pre-existing injuries, you know she’s feeling this! The referee is pleading with them both to get in the ring! Daisy has Remi pinned to the post with these strikes! Daisy takes a step back! GOT YOUR NOSE!
SG1: MISSES! These two women have scouted each other heavily! But what a sickening crack as Daisy missed the discus elbow and her wrist just smashes into the ring post! Remi took what window there was and threw herself to the side! Daisy is on the ground clutching her wrist! She may be hurt! We can hear her screaming from all the way over here at the announce booth The referee is tired of the chaos and begins to count again!
Remi stands up and grabs ahold of Daisy’s injured arm.
REMI TWISTS THE INJURED WRIST OF DAISY AND SPINS WITH IT! FLASH KICK!!!
The Riot Kick connects and Daisy is down! Remi pops back up and looks between Daisy and the referee, assessing the situation.
Remi realizes she’s running out of time so she rolls herself back into the ring!
Daisy still hasn’t moved! She could be out cold!
No! There she is! She grabs a hold of her bad wrist and pulls her knees under herself!
She hears the count now and looks back at the ring! She knows she needs to get inside or she’ll be counted out!
Daisy gets one foot underneath her, still wobbly from a number of hard shots to the head.
She’s vertical and desperate! Daisy dives… BUT SHE TRIED TO PULL HERSELF IN WITH THE BAD WRIST! HER ARM CRUMPLES IN PAIN AND SHE COLLAPSES INTO THE RING SKIRT!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Cori: Here is your winner by countout… REMMMMMIIIIII MMMCCCQQUUUEEENNN!!!
(“Earth People” by Doctor Octagon plays as Remi has her hand raised in victory and shrugs at the win. But the shrug tweaks her shoulder and she winces in pain.)
SG1: Remi takes the technical win tonight. But you have to look at this as a case of shoe on the other foot don’t you, Alicia?
Alicia: Daisy’s previous win over Stephanie Matsuda came by a close countout. It’s almost a cruel irony for her to be on the receiving end of that same fate tonight. But this isn’t the end of the Razorblade Snowflake. She’ll get back on track. But for now, looks like Remi McQueen gets the win and looks to build herself back up after Territorial Invasion.
( Commercial for Zaddy’s Chicken featuring Ryan Adams. It’s DeDeDeep fried goodness! Chains exclusively available in the Dominican Republic. )
( COMMERCIAL BREAK. )
( Camera heads backstage to the luxury suite locker room of the Jaded Wolfe Hearts, where Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart are on a recliner couch laying under a blanket with their Empire Tag Team Championships laying side by side on top of the blanket. Tyler Wolfe is sitting on her own comfy chair, covered in a blanket, with the EAW Specialist Championship sitting in her lap. In front of them is a 60 inch television screen, and Tyler is flipping back and forth between watching Remi’s match earlier this week on Empire, and watching Grey’s Anatomy. )
Tyler Wolfe: Don’t you guys think we should probably be preparing for the ‘Winner Takes All’ match next week?
Sienna Jade: Ehh. Flannery gave us the week off for a reason, the three of us have gotta rest our backs and our shoulders after carrying Empire for so goddamn long.
Tyler: Fair enough. Not like there’s much to worry about, Remi can’t even get wins without technicalities these days.
Sienna: What was that Kass?
( Kassidy is asleep, and is talking in her sleep. )
Kassidy: “Fuck you Theron I’m going to kill you”…. ZZZZZZ …. “I’ll slit your fucking throat Theron don’t come near me” …. ZZZZZZZZ …. “Don’t know why people ship me with you you fuck Ahren’s way prettier anyway.”
Tyler: Is she talking in her sleep?
Sienna: Kass… Kassidy! Wake up hunny!
( Sienna taps Kassidy on the head a few times, and Kass jumps up from her sleep. )
Kassidy: *yawn* My bad, I’m sorry. I was having a really terrible dream, in it there was this douchebag named Theron who thought he was the king and he got carried by an old man to any moderate success in EAW. And people were shipping me with him and I stole his crown. It was awful.
Sienna: Uhhh… you talking about Theron Nikolas?
Kassidy: (facepalms) So the dream was real. Oh great.
Tyler: Don’t worry Kass, you have a whole career ahead of you to stick it to that asswipe. You know I kind of wanted to strategize on what we can do about The Pride, but just watching tonight’s Empire it’s pretty cut and dry that they don’t stand a chance against us.
Sienna: No kidding. They’re already cannibalizing from within, just because that shark looking dyke lost her poor widdle wuver.
Tyler: Yeah, and can you believe all the blame being tossed around in that dressing room? I thought for a second they were about to come to blows. If they can’t even handle Raven Roberts, how the hell do they think they can handle the trifecta of champions such as ourselves?
Sienna: Right? Remi’s just bitter because she’s a loser. You’ve driven her into a seething rage Tyler, you madwoman!
Kassidy: No losses or setbacks could ever tear us apart like that. We will always have each others backs, especially next week in the Winners Take All match. We’re gonna be the champs coming in, and the champs coming out.
Sienna: Well that settles it. We’ll prepare for those wastes of space later, but uhh Tyler switch back over to Grey’s Anatomy for US please? I think this is the one where Meredith finds out Alex is cheating on her.
( Tyler switches off the Remi McQueen match and Grey’s Anatomy comes back on the television set. )
( Fades back to ringside, and we see Corie Simmons in the ring standing by with a microphone. )
Corie Simmons: This is match is your main event of the evening….scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
CROWD: ONE FALL!!!
( “Make A Move” by Icon For Hire starts up as the lights cut out as “Make A Move” by Icon For Hire begins to play. The stage fills with purple smoke as Raven Roberts walks out wearing a large pair of black wings and sleeved gloves. She unstraps her newly won New Breed Championship and raises it up high which surprisingly, and maybe perhaps for the first time in months, elicits a nice pop from the Cleveland crowd. )
Introducing first….From Las Vegas, Nevada she comes in Weighing in at 147lbs….she’s “The Bird of Prey” The New Breed Champion!….. RAVENNNNNNNN!!!! ROBERRRRTTTTSSSS!!!!
Alicia: And here she is ladies and gentlemen, the newest addition to the New Breed Division….it’s champion, Raven Roberts! A woman who made no bones about the fact that she was the best competitor in that fatal four way match and that she was not going to be denied from making history, SG1! And now she is apart of history as the first ever female New Breed Champion!
( Raven soaks in the mixed reactions from the crowd as she continues to pose with the title belt as she taunts into the camera before confidently strutting down the ramp. She walks up the stairs and along the apron before pausing with her back to the outside of the ring. )
SG1: If there’s one thing we can confirm right here and now, it’s that this woman now owns the New Breed Division, and anyone who steps up to the plate to face her will have to go through a hell of fight to dethrone her! We’ve despised her methods and ways for months, but who can surely argue them now?
( “O Fortuna” by Carl Orff begins And out skipping about to the beginning of the ramp on the stage that leads toward the ring is Madison Kaline. Her ponytails of her newly and noticeable makeover are bouncing up and down as she does. )
Corie Simmons: And introducing her opponent….From Tampa Bay, Florida….she comes in weighing in at 120lbs….She’s THE MISTRESS OF DEATH!!!!…. MADISONNNNNNNNN!!! KALINNNNNEEEEE!!!!
Alicia: Madison Kaline, ‘The Mistress of Death’ is back! She’s been involved in every Women’s main event match lately, making her presence known! Making it very clear that she wants more than just attention, and it takes a lot to ensure she doesn’t take that main spotlight for herself. But tonight, she’s got a main event match and a bounty on her back as we speak with both ASTRAEA Jordan and Stephanie Matsuda watching, wanting a piece of this Woman! Where’s she going, SG1???
( Madison wanders back through the curtain, only to return with her barbed wire baseball bat which gets the crowd buzzing in anticipation as she makes her way down the ramp with a smirk on her face as Raven Roberts talks to the referee about Madison’s weapon of choice, seemingly not happy with this. )
SG1: Raven Robert’s can’t take her eyes off the ball tonight! Maddie may have bad intentions in mind as we watch Maddie place her weapon right on the ring steps as she finally steps into the ring! Did she get clearance from Diamond Cage or someone else to be holding such a deadly choice of weaponry???
Alicia: The referee now stands between the two very fired up Women already before they go to blows right here! He warns them to keep the match clean, and both give the referee a playful look followed by a chuckle as the referee slowly backs away and out of the middle of these two ladies. He signals for the bell.
(DING! DING! DING!)
Alicia: And here we go! ‘The Mistress of Death’ Madison Kaline and ‘The Bird of Prey’, The newly crowned, and first EVER female New Breed Champion, Raven Roberts! Madison and Raven moving in and then back out here! A bit of hesitation on the part of both ladies here! Each one would love to be able to set the tone early in this matchup! And they lock up! It’s the New Breed Champion Raven with the early collar and elbow tie up advantage that gets immediately transitioned into a side headlock! Maddie grabbing a hand full of the hair of Raven Roberts but the referee warning Maddie to watch it with that tactic! But it hardly matters to Raven after what she went through at Territorial Invasion to win the New Breed title she’s actually gritting her teeth but with a smile! Raven with a hard snapmare to Maddie now which brings her down to the mat in a sitting position where Raven now lowers down to one knee applying pressure to the back of Maddie with her opposite knee and stretching the arms of ‘The Mistress of Death’! The referee checking with Maddie but she’s not ready to give up! BUT MADDIE JUST ROCKED RAVEN’S CLOCK! SMART THINKING BY MADDIE WITH THAT SURPRISE REVERSE HEADBUTT!! OUCH!! RAVEN HOLDING HER HEAD AFTER THAT SHOT! MADDIE NOT DONE AS SHE SWINGS AN ELBOW RIGHT AT THE HEAD OF RAVEN ROBERTS THAT CONNECTS!! SOMERSAULT ROLL FORWARD BY MADDIE NOW WHO’S BACK ON HER FEET!

SG1: KICK OUT BY RAVEN!!! Maddie showing why she’s one of the toughest Women wrestlers in the entire World! She’s back on Raven with stomps to the midsection of Raven! But Maddie went to the well once to often with those stomps! Raven catches Maddie’s foot this time and delivers a single leg takedown of ‘The Mistress of Death’! Raven looking for a…it looks like a figure four leg lock but Maddie uses her off leg before Raven could grab it and shoves Raven forward from behind into the ropes! Maddie reverse somersault rolls to her feet and looks to attack Raven who rebounds off with another spinning slap but Raven ducks as her momentum takes her to the ropes again!

( Arena security rushes into the ring, providing separation between Astraea, Cloud and Madison. After this Flannery McCoy marches out to the stage, visibly fuming with anger, as she has a microphone in hand. )
Flannery: STOP! STOP RIGHT NOW! This is way too much! I thought I made it clear to you both that this issue between you two and Madison is bigger than me! This whole thing is far above my pay grade, I thought I made it clear that my hands would be tied if you went against the board’s orders. But now you’re assaulting EAW officials too??? Are you freaking kidding me???
( Madison Kaline sluggishly escapes from the ring while Astraea Jordan and Cloud Matsuda are being held back by arena security. )
Flannery: I’m afraid I have no choice you guys, I warned you and I practically begged you guys not to take it this far, and I’m so sorry I have to do this. But you’re SUSPENDED. BOTH OF YOU. INDEFINITELY.
SG1 &: Alicia: WHAT?!?!
( Astraea Jordan continues to mouth on, and Cloud Matsuda stands there completely stunned by what she heard. )
SG1: But that means… they’re both off the Brody show.
( Flannery continues to say “I’m sorry” while a visibly shaking Cloud stands there in the ring, maintaining unbreaking cold stare at Flannery. The audience is booing and chanting “NO”, and Flannery walks away without turning back while Matsuda and Jordan are both escorted out of the arena. )
