Fight Grid Full Match: Ken Ken vs. Mike Gambino

(The camera pans around the empty EAW Performance Center as ‘HOV Lane’ by Nicki Minaj hits and Ken Ken slowly makes his way out of the curtain. He scans the empty crowd before slowly making his way to the ring.)

Maria Del Ray: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SET FOR ONE FALL….FROM ATLANTA, GEORGIA…WEIGHING IN AT ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY POUNDS…..””KK”……KKKKEEENNNN KEEEENNN!!!!!

Ben Knight: Ayy it’s Viz Jr. 

Clark Ruggerio: No, that’s Ken Ken, a unique individual to say the least. He just signed last week, and the potential for him is limitless. i can’t wait to see him in action for the first time tonight. 

(‘Bolt Thrower’ by Mercenary hits as Mike Gambino makes his way to the ring with a determined look on his face.

Maria Del Ray: AND INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT…FROM BROOKLYN, NEW YORK….WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY SIX POUNDS…..”THE MERCENERY”….MMMIIKKKEEE GGAAMMMBBIINNOO!!!!!!

Ben Knight: A guy with some potential, he wants to make sure this comeback is one to remember. He came up short in the battle royal last week, but is determined to only have that as a minor setback. He’s got a great chance to get a singles victory tonight. 

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Clark Ruggerio: AND HERE WE GO! Ken Ken looks in no rush to start this match as he slowly walks to the center of the ring, and Mike doesn’t really know what do. He’s just pointing at Ken Ken with a grin.

Mike Gambino(no mic): The hell is this?!

Ken Ken(no mic): HIT ME!

Ben Knight: AND WOAH! Mike did exactly that and tried throwing a right hand, but Ken Ken blocked it! Ken now is in control of this match as he’s throwing several right hands. Mike is dazed as he’s back into a corner and Ken Ken is not letting up on the attack and he slowly connects with two devastating shoulder thrusts into the midsection of Mike! Ken now grabs Mike by the head and brings him to the center of the ring-front standing dropkick connects and Mike retreats out of the ring as Ken is taunting inside the ring!

Clark Ruggerio: Mike is taking his time to get back in the ring now and look….Ken Ken is giving Mike all the space in the world to get back in the ring! Mike slowly slides back into the ring and both competitors make their way to the middle of the ring again, and both lock up in a collar and elbow tie up! Mike gets Ken in a side headlock using his hundred pound weight advantage over him! Ken tries nudging Mike off him by pushing him to the ropes but Mike doesn’t let go! Mike has the headlock in deeper and he ain’t letting up, Ken after a few moments is back up to a vertical base and Ken turns it into a back suplex causing Mike to let go! 

Ben Knight: Ken Ken is back up and Mike is seconds later and Ken charges at Mike but Mike sidesteps and sends Ken running into the ropes and Mike ducks looking for the back body drop but Ken drops to his knees and hits a uppercut to the throat of Mike! Ken now runs at Mike again and goes for a spinning hurricanrana–BUT MIKE HOLDS HER IN MID AIR USING HIS WEIGHT ADVANTAGE, AND MIKE CONNECTS WITH A SITOUT POWERBOMB! HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH THE PIN!!

OONNNEEE!!

TTWWWOOO!!!

Clark Ruggerio: KEN KICKS OUT! MIKE TRIES TO KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING THOUGH AS HE GOES AND CLIMBS UP THE TOP ROPE! PERHAPS GOING FOR METEORITE! BUT KEN IS UP TO HIS FEET AND RUNS AND HITS AN RUNNING ENZIGURI TO THE HEAD OF MILE AND MIKE CRASHES AND BURNS TO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR! KEN NOW CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE AND HE’S BALANCING HIMSELF, AND MIKE IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET ON THE OUTSIDE AND TURNS AROUND…CROSS BODY FROM KEN KEN!! WHAT A HIGH RISK MANUEVER RIGHT THERE!

Ben Knight: KEN IS BACK UP AND IS LOOKING TO GET MIKE BACK IN THE RING AS HE’S DRAGGING HIM BY THE ARMS BUT IT’S ALMOST DEAD WEIGHT AT THIS POINT! MIKE POPS UP AND SLAMS KEN’S FACE ON THE STEEL STEPS! AND HE DOES IT AGAIN! MIKE GRABS KEN BY THE HEAD AGAIN AND RUNS FULL STEAM AND THROWS KEN BACK FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! MIKE GAMBINO IS RELENTLESS RIGHT NOW, HE’S LIKE A SHARK WHO SMELLS BLOOD IN THE WATER! MIKE GAMBINO EFFORTLESSLY PICKS UP KEN AND ROLLS HIM IN THE RING AND HE CLIMBS UP TO THE TOP ROPE ONCE AGAIN LOOKING FOR METEORITE, MIKE LEAPS HIGH IN THE SKY–BUT NOBODY HOME AS KEN ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND! 

Clark Ruggerio: KEN IS CRAWLING AWAY FROM MIKE NOW AND IS TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF UP WITH THE ROPES AND HE DOES, KEN LEAPS AT MIKE HIGH IN THE AIR WITH A JUMPING CLOTHESLINE BUT MIKE CATCHES HIM WITH A BIG BOOT! KEN MIGHT BE OUT LIKE A LIGHT! MIKE PICKS UP KEN FROM THE MAT AND IS GOING FOR THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT, SWEET DREAMS HE CALLS IT! HE’S GOT THE ARMS HOOKED BUT KEN KEN IS TRYING WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT TO FIGHT OUT, AND KEN TURNS IT INTO A BACK BODY DROP SAVING HIMSELF FOR THE MOMENT! MIKE IS UP AND TURNS AROUND AND EATS A SPINNING HEEL KICK FROM KEN KEN! IS THIS GOING TO BE ENOUGH FOR THE WIN?!
