Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!

(“Buzzin” by Mann hits the speakers as Morris Tremaine Valentino walks out into the stage, almost shocked as he sees the capacity crowd in Oakland, California)
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making his EAW debut… from Staten Island, New York by way of Beverly Hills, California… weighing in at 165 pounds… MORRRRRRRIIIISSSSS TREEEEEMMAAAAAIINNEEEE VVAAAALLLEEENNTTTIIINNNOOOOOO!!!!

Gina Romano: And his opponent, making his way to the ring from Newton, Massachusetts, weighing in at 338 pounds… JONNNNNAAATTTHHAAANNNN DDDDRRRRRRAAAAKKKKKKEEEEE!!
(Jonathan Drake makes his way down and climbs into the ring, staring a hole through MTV as he does so)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: Well we are getting going now with this Fight Grid special, live from Oracle Arena just before Under Siege will be taking place! Jonathan Drake looked very dominant in his debut last week on Showdown, and tonight he faces someone making their debut with the company in MTV. What do you think we’ll see from this one, Eve?
Eve: Well you said yourself that Jonathan Drake dominated his debut. I believe he is the single biggest specimen on the Showdown roster. MTV was brought in for his athletic talent so you have to wonder what strategy he’s got coming into this! That said I can’t say I hold out a lot of hope for the newcomer.
Deadprez: I gotta agree but MTV looks like he’s gonna go for it as he now approaches, looks like he’s tying to find the right entry point to get into JD’s range before— DRAKE JUST GRABBED MORRIS BY THE SKULL AND HURLED HIM INTO THE CORNER! JONATHAN DRAKE IS A MONSTER OF A MAN! HE IS STOMPING A HOLE THROUGH THE ROOKIE VALENTINO! NOW HE GRABS HIM BY THE SKULL AGAIN AND THROWS HIM
THROUGH THE AIR! VALENTINO CRASHES INTO THE MAT JUST IN FRONT OF THE OTHER TURNBUCKLE, HE FLEW DIAGONALLY ACROSS THE ENTIRE RING! DRAKE CHARGES AND LEAPS! HE GRABS THE TOP ROPE AND DRIVES HIS FULL WEIGH WITH HIS KNEES INTO THE CHEAT OF MTV! DRAKE WITH AN EARLY PIN!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOO!
Eve: But MTV kicks out! He needs to create some space and regroup! But now JD grabs him and drags him up again by the skull and— MTV JUST GRABBED DRAKES ARMA ND USED IT TO PULL HIMSELF UP FOR AN ENZIGURI!!! JD is stunned! That kick caught him on the jaw! MTV needs to take advantage of this and he does by kicking Drake directly in the knee over and over! Attempting to chop the tree down! MTV pulls back and bounces off the ropes! He goes for a leaping forearm— BUT JONATHAN DRAKE CAUGHT HIM BY THE THROAT AND SMASHES HIM WITH A CHOKESLAM!
Deadprez: Jonathan Drake looks like he’s pissed that MTV got those strikes on him and now he’s gonna make him pay for it! Drake stomping into Morris again and again and now MTV moves himself out to the apron to try and get some distance! Drake follows though and tries to get him pulled back in— BUT A BIG SHOULDER FROM MTV INTO THE GUT OF DRAKE! AND A FOREARM SMASH STUMBLES HIM! MTV LEAPS UP AND SPRINGBOARDS INTO A LEG DROP TO THE BACK OF THE NECK OF THE DOUBLED OVER JONATHAN DRAKE! HE JUST OUT THE BIG MAN ON THE MAT! NOW HERES HIS CHANCE! MTV RUNS TO THE CORNER! HE PULLS HIMSELF TO THE TOP!
Eve: I’m impressed so far! And now MTV lines himself up! He turns around… PHOENIX SPLASH! TGIF! HE CONNECTED WITH IT! HE HOOKS THE MASSIVE TREE TRUNK THAT IS JD’S LEG!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: Dear god he did it!
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… MORRIS TREMAINE VALENTINO!!!
Eve: An amazing first match for this young man, taking out one of the most monstrous people we’ve ever seen in Jonatan Drake!
(MTV has his hand raised by the ref and celebrates in the ring. Jonathan Drake stands and looks angry. He goes to attack MTV but is suddenly hit with a tranquilizing dart by Joey Mayhem before being dragged away. MTV shrugs it off and continues to celebrate.)
Deadprez: MTV will go places. Mark my words. This kid has a bright future on Showdown!
