FULL SHOW – The Palace (2018)

( EAW Intro plays )

( Highlights of many of the moments from 2018 from January until now are played! Including the most exciting feuds, craziest matches, shocking twists and more! We then see a hype video of the build for “Live from The Alexandra Palace”, detailing the event selling out in just one day despite the average ticket price being at 3000 EUR! Many of the exhibition bouts are hyped up, including the return of the legendary Kendra Shamez in her first EAW match in nearly 2 years, as well as the reemergence of Jamie O’Hara who goes one on one against Noah Reigner in ‘Ace vs Ace’. )

( Camera opens up to the outside of Alexandra Palace where we get a view of the breathtaking building exterior. The equally dazzling inner hall is shown, with thousands of fans packed in the building who are all chanting “EAW!” Transition over to the commentary table where Stew-O and Deadprez are sitting by. )

Stew-O: Hello everyone and welcome to Elite Answers Wrestling’s 2nd annual New Years Eve special event! The Voice of EAW Stew-O here alongside my most tenured broadcast partner and good friend Deadprez, and we are LIVE from the Alexandra Palace in London, England for an extraordinary night of action to bring us into the new year!

Deadprez: The Ally Pally is rocking Stew! These people paid some good money, and I mean GOOD MONEY to come see us drag our butts away from our families on New Years Eve! I wasn’t finna come but the holiday season left ya man broke as hell so I need them holiday hours :mjgrin:

Stew: Shouldn’t have spent your Christmas tricking out on strippers, Prez! Nevertheless, it is an exciting opportunity to be here to call such an incredible night of action, and we will also have the always anticipated end-of-the-year awads announced tonight as well! We also have the in-ring return of multiple Hall of Famers, multiple highly anticipated match ups between some of EAWs biggest stars, even our Womens World Champion in action this evening!

Deadprez: Generations will clash, different combat styles will be on display, and we’re going to get the ball rolling right away and give these people what they paid for by showcasing the next generation RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!

Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!

(“Native Blood” by Silent Planet blasts through the speaker to thunderous boos. Solomon Hill steps out to the stage, looking at the crowd confidently before he walks down the ramp )

Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST!! From Bern, Switzerland, weighing in at 253 pounds….. SOOOOLLLLLOMONNNNN HILLLL!!!!!!

Deadprez: Solomon Hill was apart of a competitive triple threat last week against Jack Haze and Damon Diesel. He unfortunately did not succeed on picking up a win that week. However, he promised everyone that he will succeed on winning this six tag team match. Solomon Hill has proved to have a lot of promise in EAW so far and he’s going to prove that tonight.

(“Hair Of The Dog” by Nazareth hits to a huge pop as Farrell V comes from the curtains with a huge smile on his face. He soaks in the crowd’s appreciation and slaps the hands of fans as he goes down the ramp. )

Bella Braxton: HIS TAG TEAM PARTNERS! FIRST! From Indonesia, weighing in at 235 pounds… FARRELLL V!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: This man calls himself Mr. Every Night, which is a huge claim. Farrell has this opportunity to make that huge claim a reality. He has a chance to outperform the others and be the most valuable player of this event.

(“Running Up That Hill” by Jom plays to a loud, mixed reaction. Daniel Caine doesn’t want to take his time as he quickly walks down the ramp. )

Bella Braxton: AND… From White Water, Indiana, weighing in at 240 pounds….. DAAAAANIELLLLL CAINNNNNE!!!!

Deadprez: Daniel Caine picked up a huge win over Xavier Arnold last week and is looking to pick up another win over him tonight. However, this is a different match. This is a tag team matches and for these kind of matches, you have to have a different strategy.

(“Blood // Water” by grandson blasts through the speaker along with a huge, mixed reaction. Bowie Gray slowly walks onto the stage, looking at the crowd disgustedly before walking down the ramp)

Bella Braxton: THEIR OPPONENTS!! FIRST!!! From Salem, Massechuteus, weighing in at 185 pounds…. BOOOWWWWWWWIEEEEEEEEE GRAAAAAAYYYY!!

Stew-O: One of the star attractions of Battleground, Bowie Gray, has showcased his unmatched talent in every match he has wrestled in. He is a great addition to the Dynasty roster, a future world champion in my eyes.

Deadprez: You are definitely right, Bowie Gray has the tools to be a huge success in the EAW and he proved that especially in Battleground. Everyone in the Dynasty locker room must be put on notice and Bowie Gray has a chance to shut up all the critics in this match.
(“Your Betrayal” by Bullet For My Valentine blares throughout the arena to yet more boos from the crowd in attendance. Eric Crane walks onto the stage, taking a glimpse of the negative crowd for a split second before quickly marching down the ramp )

Bella Braxton: And from Long Island, New York, weighing in at 213 pounds….. ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRICCCCC CRAAAAANEEE!!!
Deadprez: Tonight, Eric Crane will be teaming up with his Battleground rival, Xavier Arnold. Do you think that will affect the chances of them winning tonight?

Stew-O: Well, we’ll have to see that but no doubt these men still have hate for each other. They still want to tear each other apart but they know that they have to keep emotions side and win this match.

(“Mein Hertz Brennt” by Rammenstein blares throughout the arena to many boos. Xavier Arnold walks out the curtain and down the ramp with confidence )

Bella Braxton: His tag team partners! From Cologne, Germany, weighing in at 219 pounds….
XAAAAVIEERRRRR ARRRRNNNOOOOOOLLLLLLLDDDDD!!!!

Stew-O: Xavier Arnold is more than confident, he is more composed than ever. Arnold is smart enough to know what opportunity he has tonight and he won’t screw it.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-o: The bell has rung as this six-man tag team match as gone underway as Daniel Caine and Eric Crane start for their respective teams. Xavier Arnold immediately tagging into the match right when Eric Crane was about to move into the center of the ring.

Stew-O: Both men are layed out on the canvas on their respective sides! The crowd cheer in anticipation! Who will tag out first?!?! Arnold and Caine now onto their knees! Caine in the farthest from his tag team partners as ARNOLD TAGS IN AS BOWIE GRAY TAGS IN! GRAY GRABS CAINE’S NECK AND TIGHTS AND SPINS HIM AROUND!!! HE THROWS HIM INTO FARRELL V!!!! AND A SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF SOLOMON HILL!!! Bowie Gray now running into the opposite corner of Caine! HE RUNS BACK!!!! RUNNING DROPKICK INTO THE CORNERED CAINE!!! Caine’s tag team partners have been temporarily wiped out! Caine now quickly resting Caine’s head and shoulders onto the middle rope near the turnbuckles.

Deadprez: Caine takes a few steps backwards and JUMPS OVER THE TOP ROPE!!! AND DROPKICKS CAINE!!! BOWIE GRAY IS ON FIRE!!!! Gray now springboarding off the top rope! Daniel ducks Gray!

(“Native Blood” by Silent Planet is played to an uproar of boos from the London crowd. )

Bella Braxton: HERE IS YOUR WINNER.. THE TEAM OF SOLOMON HILL…. FARRELL V….. AND DANIELLLLLL CAIIIIIINNNNEEEE!!!

Deadprez: Eric Crane was not aware of the tag in from Solomon Hill and that cost him in this match. Solomon Hill tagging in unexpectedly was the smartest move for the team as Eric Crane countered the Five Star Frog Splash. Solomon Hill came in from the shadows and made Eric black out with the devastating Double Knees.

Stew-O: You can’t underestimate the effort that the team Crane, Arnold, and Gray put into this match. Gray was on fire, he was almost unstoppable. Arnold and Crane did their part as well. This was an awesome match and all these six men have nothing to be embarrassed of. Congratulations to the three men who were victorious in this tag team match!

(Commercial for the Dirti Diva’s Dirt Sheet! All the wrestling news and rumors you want and crave!)

( “Trophies” by Drake can be heard playing in the background and golden lights shine on the stage, where a podium is stood as well as two EAW large golden EAW Award statues in the background. )

Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen please put your hands together for the 2018 EAW Awards show hosts, EAW Vice President and EAW Hall of Famer HRDO and the General Manager of Empire, Flannery McCoy!

( HRDO and Flannery McCoy walk out to the stage waving to the audience, dressed their best as HRDO is wearing his usual corporate attire with a long red tie, and Flannery McCoy is in a button down blouse tucked into a pencil skirt with fancy heels on. The two walk up to the podium and the music calms down. )

HRDO: Hello London!

( Crowd chants “HRDO!” and HRDO smiles, allowing them to get their chant off. )

HRDO: Thank you!

( Crowd chants “FLANNERY!”, prompting Flannery and HRDO to laugh. )

Flannery McCoy: How sweet, thank you!

HRDO: Flannery and I are thrilled to be your hosts for the 2018 EAW Awards Show, where our Elitists will be recognized for their excellence throughout this amazing, incredible year.

Flannery: 2018 has provided some of the most inspiring stories, as well as heart-racing moments all year long! After the merger between EAW and REVOLT, the entire roster has performed with extra to prove, and as a result EAW has had its most profitable and arguably its most successful year to date! The excellence shown by this roster will be rewarded with the prestigious end-of-the-year awards, voted in by the Academy of Wrestling Arts & Sciences.

HRDO: In 2018 the Academy has completely revamped itself, providing the most esteemed and educated voting board filled with journalists and professionals who have studied this business inside and out, in many cases, for decades. The first award that will be presented tonight will be for the coveted 2018 ROOKIE OF THE YEAR AWARD!

Flannery: The Rookie of the Year award is a recognition of the best singular rookie year by any EAW Elitist in the year of 2018, and in all of my years of following EAW I think it’s safe to say HRDO that there has never been a ROTY field this packed.

HRDO: Without question, we aren’t just saying that, this year has been beyond compare in terms of rookie classes. There truly hasn’t been any other year that comes close. But if you don’t believe me, let’s get a look at the nominees and you can see for yourselves!

( Video package displays highlights and accomplishments from the nominees, including:
– Noah Reigner
– Xander Payne
– Kassidy Heart
– Sienna Jade
– Tyler Wolfe
– Raven Roberts
– Remi Skyfire. )

( Return to the stage, where HRDO and Flannery are handed a metallic gold coloured envelope containing the results. Flannery slowly opens it. )

Flannery: And the winner for the 2018 ROOKIE OF THE YEAR…. AS WELL AS THE AWARD FOR “NEXT UP IN 2019”, “The Assault Rifle” himself, NOAH REIGNER!!!!

( Flannery and HRDO clap, and the audience cheers wildly as “DON’T STOP” by InnerPartySystem comes on the sound system. Noah Reigner walks out to the stage with Evelyn Ridley and Cameron Church. Noah gives Flannery and HRDO a handshake and a nod, and he takes the stage with a big smile on his face. A stagehand hands Noah both of the 22 inch golden trophies, and he looks into them with wonder before his music dies down. )

Noah Reigner: Wow… feels good, feels even better than I thought it would. But I guess the euphoria is the only thing actually surprising about tonight, because I KNEW I would be holding both of these in my hands.

( Crowd pops at his sheer confidence. )

Noah: I have a few people to thank of course. My trainer Cameron, and my ride-or-die Evelyn who have been there for me every step of the way. I also want to thank my lady Tyler for her support, and for all of her passion that I feed on in order to keep my fire going. I have been a workaholic, busting my ass, honing my craft and fighting every single match as if it were my very last. Most people don’t have the guts to put as much on the line as I do every single night, but in case you didn’t already realize it by now, Noah Reigner is NOT most people. It’s wonderful to be recognized tonight for what I am, but I think it’s high time people begin to recognize me for what I’m not. I am NOT somebody who bends the knee to any man, and that includes the old self professed “Ace.” I damn sure am not a man who can be blindsided, cheated, and stolen from like I was at Road to Redemption.

So yeah I’m Rookie of the Year. EAW and the Academy recognize that I am going to be the man to watch for 2019, but 2018 isn’t finished yet, and neither is my business with several individuals. Jamie O’Hara is one of them and I’m going to deal with him in the main event tonight to prove why I am the only Ace of this company. And after I’m finished with him, I’m going to find the son of a Bitch who stole my fucking briefcase.

( Noah turns away from the podium and the audience gives him a huge ovation. “Trophies” by Drake comes back on and we see Noah, Evelyn and Cameron directed down to the side of the stage where there is a “red carpet” section and a camera crew to snap pictures. They take pictures with the ROTY trophy and the Next Up in 2019 Trophy. )

(Camera opens to Bella Braxton in the ring)

(“In The City” by Kevin Rudolf plays as the crowd reacts negatively as Jake Smith walks out from the back in a cocky manner. He is looking around the crowd in the Alexandra Palace before making his way down to the ring.)

Bella Braxton: The following match is a FATAL-4-WAY MATCH and it’s scheduled for ONE FALL —

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Venice, California, he is JAAAAAAAAKEEEEEEE SMMMMITTTTHHHHHHHHH!!!

Stew-O: Jake Smith considers himself a man who will do anything for a win! He is one-half of The Revolution alongside Josh Nicholls have made a mark on Battleground! However, it seems like Jake is going on this match alone, but that’s what happened with his match against Justicar Eric on Fight Grid! So, anything, should be possible!

Deadprez: Just like you said, Stew, Jake Smith is willing to do anything to get a victory! If you got a partner to rely on, utilize them! I know for a fact that Jake should have some sort of game plan going into this fatal-4-way match and I cannot wait to see how he does in this match!

(“Rise” by I Prevail plays as Denis Cercel comes out from the curtain into a positive reaction from the crowd. He is smiling at the crowd cheering before making his way down to the ring as he tags the hands of the fans along the way.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing his opponent first, from Orlando, Florida, he is “The Enforcer”, DEEEEENNNNNNNISSSSSS CEEERRRRCEEEEEELLLLLLL!!

Deadprez: Why does this guy have a smile on his face? He looks like an idiot! I swear, he seems different since the last time I saw him, but I am not going to go on with that, but Denis Cercel seems like he is going to be the perfect coil to go up against a cocky Jake Smith!

Stew-O: This guy wants to go out and give a great match! What’s not to love about this guy? I feel like he will do quite well on Voltage in 2019. He is someone who seems to have the desire and drive to get in a championship picture! This is one guy you need to look out for!

(“You Only Live Once (Instrumental)” by Suicide Silence plays throughout the crowd who maintains a positive reaction, but there are some boos heard around The Palace as Damon Diesel comes out with serious and intimidating look on his face as he looks around the crowd without his facial expression changing.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing next, from Orlando, Florida, he is “The Wrestling Machine”, DAAAAMMMMOOOOOOONNNNNN DIEEEESSSSEEEEELLLLLL!!

Stew-O: Here is a young man, who had a tough 2018. However, it wasn’t all too bad as he managed to face then-EAW Champion, Diamond Cage for the title on the Showdown after Pain for Pride! He also took part of the historic War Games Match at Territorial Invasion as he was one of the men to represent Showdown! Things may have gone slow after that, but doesn’t he have a New Breed Championship Match to look forward too in 2019?

Deadprez: Honestly, this is someone who everyone needs to be on a look out for! Damon Diesel is young, hungry and he wants to capture his first championship in EAW! This guy has a real shot at dethroning Raven Roberts! Damon is not playing games anymore and I am liking the attitude that he has been bringing these last few months! I hope that it translates in this match!

(“I’m Not Okay” by My Chemical Romance plays as the crowd breaks out in “OK” chants. Drake King comes out as he is shouting to the crowd that it’s “Not OK”, but the crowd are poor listeners and won’t listen to him. He makes his way down to the ring telling the crowd “Not OK”.)

Bella Braxton: Introducing last, from Brooklyn, New York, he is “The King”, DRRRAAAAAAKKKKKKKEEEEEE KIIINNNNNNGGGGGG!!

Crowd: OK!

Drake King (off-mic): NOT OK!

Crowd: OK!

Deadprez: Can these people understand that it’s NOT OK? You can tell that this “OK” chant is annoying the hell out of the guy and these fans don’t seem to give a damn! Drake King is not your EAW Champion! Drake King is more than just “OK”. Drake King is someone who will surprise us in 2019. Mark my words!

Stew-O: Drake King had an interesting year himself! He has been showing constant signs of improvement and in the pace he is going at, he will find himself in champion contention. Hell, he could be a champion in 2019! Two of the biggest highlights in 2018 happened to be an upset victory over new EAW Champion, Ahren Fouriner on Showdown and he managed to get one of the biggest upsets in the Showdown Chamber Match with eliminating the Heart Break Boy! If this man continues to surprise us the way he has, he will go far in this company!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Deadprez: Each man stands in his corner and looks around, no one quite sure whether to make the first move or not. Damon Diesel steps… BUT JAKE SMITH IS OFF LIKE A GUNSHOT STRAIGHT FOR DRAKE KING! HE CLOTHESLINES DRAKE STRAIGHT OVER THE TOP ROPE AND THE TWO FALL TO THE FLOOR BRAWLING! Damon Diesel looks over the top at them… BUT DENIS CERCEL ROLLS HIM UP FROM BEHIND!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Stew-o: Damon powers out! He pops up to his feet as Denis tries to get up and plants a penalty kick into Cercel’s chest! Denis falls back flat and Damon drops down on top of him! He rains down punches and forearms to the bridge of Denis’s nose! Now he smashes Cercel’s skull backwards into the mat before grabbing him by the head and pulling him up! OH BOY! DAMON GRABS THE REAR WAIST LOCK! HES TRYING TO HIT THE GERMAN SUPLEX! LIFTS HIM UP! OH! But Cercel kicks his legs around and fights his way through it! He breaks the waist lock! Grabs ahold of Damon’s arm and yanks him in! MASSIVE RIPCORD LARIAT TURNS DIESEL INSIDE OUT!

Deadprez: Back in the outside, Jake and Drake have been trading back and forth! Drake swings with a massive right hand and it connects with Jake’s eye! Drake grabs Smith by the shoulder and runs him collarbone first into the Spanish announce desk! Jake collapses down! He has a mouse over his right eye after that punch a moment ago but Drake isn’t done! He comes in as Jake tries to crawl away! Jake is up at the time keepers area now and Drake grabs him by the arm! Jake turns around—

Stew-o: AND BLASTS DRAKE ACROSS THE FACE WITH THE RING BELL! Remember there’s no count outs and no disqualifications in a fatal four way folks! Drake drops to the ground and Jake tosses the ring bell to the side. He walks over and just grinds his boot across the face of Drake King! Back inside the ring, Denis Cercel plants Damon Diesel with a massive powerbomb and goes for the cover!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THR—

Deadprez: JAKE SMITH BREAKS THE COUNT!

Stew-o: Jake Smith saw what was happening and slid into the ring to break the count just in time! Now he stomps a hole through Denis Cercel as he stands over him! Grabs Denis by the arm and pulls him up to his feet! Hits with with a quick kick to the gut! Grabs him by the head! Has him in suplex position! Lifts him up! OH! A BRAINBUSTER! And now Jake makes a cover of his own!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEE-

Deadprez: But Cercel manages to kickout in time! Jake grabs Denis up from the mat and runs him over to the ropes before tossing him over the top! Cercel crashes to the floor and Jake turns around INTO A DROPKICK FROM DAMON DIESEL! Now Damon catches Jake as he bounces off the ropes from that stumble! BIG SCOOP SLAM! Jake tries to roll away but Damon grabs him by the leg and rolls him into the Boston Crab! He cranks back on Jakes leg, yanking at the spine and hip socket!

Stew-o: Jake is straining! His face is already turning red from the pain as he tries to drag himself to the ropes but he’s not gaining any ground!

Referee: Jake, do you submit?

Jake Smith: FUCK OFF!!!

Deadprez: Jake refusing to tap but he’s in serious pain right now! He’s digging deep! Claws again at the mat and manages to move himself! He’s dragging his way over! He’s nearly there! Damon cranking back as hard as he can! Jake is reaching now!

Stew-o: HE GRABS THE ROPE!!!!

Referee: It’s no DQ! Fatal four way! No rope breaks!

Deadprez: Oh yeah…

Stew-o: Jake looks like he can’t take much more! He tries to climb up the ropes to escape but it just bends his spine more! He can’t keep up like this!! Jake drops back to the mat! HE LIFTS HIS HAND! HE MAY TAP HERE! THIS COULD BE IT!

Deadprez: GUILLOTINE!!!!!!! DRAKE KING PLANTS THE RUNNING KNEE INTO DAMON DIESELS FACE!!!! DAMON COLLAPSES BACKWARDS AND OUT OF THE RING THROUGH THE ROPES! DRAKE TRIED TO CATCH HIM FOR THE PIN BUT DAMON DROPPED LIKE A SACK!! He turns his attention back to Jake who is climbing slowly to his feet! Drake sets up behind him… GRABS HIM BY THE HEAD! KINGS WASTELAND! THE FALCON ARROW PLANTS JAKE ON HIS BACK THAT WAS ALREADY HURTING FROM A MINUTE AGO! REFEREE MAKES THE COUNT!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEE-

Stew-o: DENIS CERCEL GRABBED THE REF BY THE ANKLE AND YANKED HIM OUTTA THE RING! Denis rolls into the ring and stomps the back of Drake’s head! Drake clutches his skull, still rattled from the ring bell earlier! The referee is down on the outside! Drake rolls to the corner and Jake grabs the ropes to drag himself to his feet, hurting bad from the Falcon Arrow! Denis taps him and points to Drake in the corner! Jake nods and the two rush over! They grab Drake up and both Irish whip him into the ropes! Drake bounces off! DOUBLE LARIAT!

Deadprez: DRAKE DUCKED IT! He baseball slides under the bottom rope and crawls underneath the ring apron! Where the hell is he going?!?

Stew-o: DOUBLE BULLDOG FROM DAMON DIESEL! He slid in from behind and planted both men on their faces! Damon grabs Jake up and scoops him! GAME OVER! NO! Damon went for the pile driver but Jake escaped! He slides around and grabs Damon by the head! BROKEN WINGS!!!!! Jake hits the swinging neckbreaker and makes the cover! Denis is still down and drake is nowhere to be seen!

Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

Deadprez: BUT THERES NO REF TO MAKE THE COUNT! Jake looks around and sees the referee on the floor before sliding out! Jake goes to pull him up… BUT DRAKE SLIDES OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING! AND HES GOT HIS RED HOT BRANDING IRON!!!!!!!

Stew-o: DRAKE CHARGES AND TRIES TO BRAND JAKE WITH THE RED HOT END!!! OH BUT JAKE DUCKS IT! Drake turns around AND SWINGS THE BRANDING IRON! IT CATCHES JAKE ON THE CHEEKBONE AND DROPS HIM! It wasn’t the red hot end but damn it did the job! Drake slides into the ring with it now! He takes the rear end of it and crushes it into Damon’s rib cage! Damon clutches at his chest and rolls out the ring, barely able to breathe! Drake lines up with it and Denis is climbing to his feet! Drake has a crazed look in his eyes! DENIS STANDS AND DRAKE CHARGES!!!!!!!!

Deadprez: DENIS SIDESTEPS AND RUNS DRAKE FLAT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! Drake comes out the corner and Denis grabs the iron and tosses it outta the ring! Denis unloads on Drake with punches now! The referee is waking up on the outside! Denis grabs Drake by the head and hooks the leg! GOING FOR THE FISHERMAN BUSTER! LIFTS HIM UP!

Stew-o: BUT DRAKE KICKS HIS LEG OUT WHILE UP AND SLIDES DOWN BEHIND DENIS! He shoves Denis into the corner… AND FOLLOWS WITH THE GUILLOTINE! THE REFEREE SLIDES IN JUST AS DRAKE MAKES THE COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Deadprez: Drake King wins! SHOWDOWN REPRESENT!

Stew-o: There were three Showdown people in this match! They had a 75% chance!

Deadprez: Its a 100% chance when Showdown shows up baby! Wooooo!

(Drake rises to his feet and throws his fist in the air)

Crowd: NOT OK! NOT OK! NOT OK!

Drake King: YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT!

(Jake Smith is still out cold on the outside and bleeding from a cut under his eye, Damon is being tended to by media for his ribs)

( “Trophies” by Drake returns in the background, and we transition over to the stage where HRDO and Flannery McCoy are standing by. )

HRDO: Through the annals of EAW history we have seen supremely talented individuals come together and form institutions of dominance, in other words, stables, that have restructured the landscape of this company completely!

Flannery: Empire has seen its fair share of dominant stables in 2018 alone, and the overall field shows that now more than ever factions have been a prominent part of EAW competition, with members of the roster finding common ground and forming, as HRDO said quite eloquently, institutions of dominance!

HRDO: Here are some of the top class stables who have shaken up EAW in 2018…

( Video package displays highlight reels for the 2018 Stable Of The Year nominees, including:
– Jaded Wolfe Hearts
– Crowes Nest
– The 1%
– The Pride. )

( Camera returns to the stage, and Flannery McCoy opens up the envelope slowly but surely… once she sees the results she makes a cheeky grin. )

Flannery: Haha, interesting. JADED WOLFE HEARTS!!!!

( “True Love” by CFO$ plays and the crowd erupts with cheers as Sienna Jade, Kassidy Heart and Tyler Wolfe walk out to the stage with pleasant smiles on their face. Flannery exits before they get towards the podium, Sienna and Kassidy hug HRDO as he congratulates them, and Tyler Wolfe has a fangirl moment bowing before giving him a big hug. They all take the podium and their music dies down as HRDO takes his leave. )

Sienna Jade: Lord, lord, lord. I mean what more can we even say huh ladies? Complete. Fucking. Dominance.

Kassidy Heart: Sienna, Tyler, from the bottom of my heart you two deserve every single award that you’ve been nominated for as well and even the awards that you haven’t! I want to thank you two so much for helping me become the person I am, I would not be up here on this stage if it weren’t for the two of you and I’m so, so grateful for the both of you. We really did it queens, nobody can take this moment away from us, not Flannery, not Fox, not anybody. This night is about us.

Tyler Wolfe: 2018 was the year where we proved all of the women and ESPECIALLY the men who doubted us as individuals and as a unit dead wrong. 2019 is only going to be more of the same. What keeps our undying respect for each other going is our excellence inside the ring as well as out it, and that just comes with the territory of being perfection fucking personified. There are no individuals, and damn sure no units who are capable of what the three of us are capable, and that hussy Flannery can tuck her tail between her legs and run off of this stage all she wants, because in 2019 there is no escaping us.

Sienna: It is an amazing feeling to be recognized for how great we are FOR ONCE. God I don’t even know how we’re going to carry all of these trophies we’re leaving with! But in all seriousness, from the first moment I stepped foot onto Empire I have seen shady people do shady things and I’ve heard whispers of the insecure, envious, untalented circle jerkers. That’s when I knew for sure exactly how great I am, how great we are. I took such great pleasure making these jealous hearted bitches seethe in their own skins as I walked around proudly with my REVOLT Freeweight Championship, and as the year progressed my success only became greater. I am proud of what Tyler, Kassiboo and I have accomplished this year, and I am proud that I am finally being recognized as the UNFUCKWITHABLE standard bearer that I am. 2018 was just the prequel as far as I’m concerned, 2019 going to send the rest of these fake ass bitches running to the bingo halls, you know, with the rest of their buddies. 😉 Hi Cloud.

Kassidy: JADED WOLFE HEARTS 4 LIFE! DRINK BLEACH FLANNERY! WOOOOOOOOOO!

( “Trophies” by Drake comes back on and the three ladies are directed to the red carpet area on the side of the stage, and they are handed several more trophies for awards that were announced before the broadcast. )

Bella Braxton (background): In addition to Stable Of The Year, congratulations to the Jaded Hearts for winning Tag Team Of The Year, as well as congratulations to Kassidy Heart for winning the coveted PROMOER OF THE YEAR award, and Sienna Jade for winning the coveted FEMALE ELITIST OF THE YEAR award!

( We see the Jaded Wolfe Hearts posing for pictures at the red carpet area, with Tyler Wolfe holding all three golden Stable Of The Year trophies in her arms, Sienna Jade holding her crystal glass/diamond/gold Female Elitist Of The Year award in one hand, and holding up the massive Grand Prix trophy on one side while Kassidy holds it on the other, and is carrying the two golden Tag Team Of The Year award trophies as well as her golden Promoer Of The Year trophy. )

(Camera opens to show Bella Braxton in the ring with a microphone as “Skyfall” by Adele plays over the arena speakers to boos as Asher Greyson walks out into the stage and runs his hand through his hair before making his way down the ramp)

Deadprez: Now this is a guy who’s here to try and make a statement. Asher Greyson can pick up a big win tonight to get his momentum going hard over on Voltage.

Stew-O: That’s correct. The newcomer can make his mark here in front of the whole world! And I don’t think he’d have it any other way!

(Asher climbs into the ring and gives a brief and arrogant pose to the crowd before “It Follows” by Cane Hill blares over the system with another set of boos as Xander Payne makes his entrance)

Deadprez: I’ve become very aware of Voltage’s Xander Payne over on Showdown with all of his interactions with Drake King. It’s no shock to see him look this focused and driven after what happened at Road to Redemption.

Stew-O: My partner for the night is obviously referencing when Drake King cost Xander the matchup against Jackson Blayde, giving Jackson to no longer vacant National Elite Championship.

Deadprez: If it’s obvious then why you gotta explain it?

(The referee ushers Xander to his corner as both men get set. Bella Braxton steps forward)

Bella Braxton: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for One Fall!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Robbinsdale, Minnesota, weighing in at 212 pounds… ASSSSSSSSSSHHHHHEEEEEERRR GGGRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEYYYYYYSSSSOOONNNN!!

(Asher steps forwards and throws his hands out with a nonchalant attitude)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent, from Brampton, Canada, weighing in at… uhhh… “255 pounds”… XAAAAAANNNNDDDDEEEERRRRRRR PPPPPAAAAAYYYYYYNNNEEEEEE!!!

(Xander beats his chest and looks shocked at the crowd daring to boo him. The referee backs him back to his corner and stands in the center before calling for the bell)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-o: And we are underway with this matchup! Asher and Xander move towards each other at the center of the ring and lock up! Xander powers Asher back into the corner and begins to unload on him with a serious of shots! The referee immediately pulls Xander back as Asher ties himself up in the ropes and the referee warns Xander about going too far! But Xander shoves his way past and—

Deadprez: GREYSON WITH THE THUMB TO THE EYE! The ref didn’t see because Xander had shoved him away! Greyson slips behind and rolls him up AND HE HAS A FIST FULL OF TIGHTS!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!

Stew-o: But Xander manages to kick out! He rolls himself over to the corner and looks in shock but her comes Asher… RUNNING METEORA TO XANDERS FACE! DID YOU SEE HOW HIS HEAD JUST SNAPPED BACK?!? He’s gotta be seeing stars now! Asher grabs Xander by the head and pulls him up to his feet and out of the corner! Xander is out in his feet and Asher lines up FOR A SUPERKICK! Xander stumbles back and drops with his head propped on the bottom rope! But now Xander scrambles himself underneath the bottom rope and to the outside!

Deadprez: That superkick may have actually woke Xander up from his stupor! He tries to gather himself but Asher has a look on his face… he bounces off the ropes… AND DIVES THROUGH THE MIDDLE AND TOP ROPES—

Stew-o: BUT XANDER CLOCKS HIM WITH THE RIGHT HAND OUT OF THE AIR! Asher drops like dead weight to the floor and Xander scrambles over to him! Grabs Greyson by the head and picks him up onto his shoulder AND POWERSLAMS HIM ON THE APRON! Asher arches his spine as he scream from the pain before trying to roll back under the bottom rope! But Xander grabs him by the boot and yanks him back out, casing him to drop flat on his back on the floor! The referee is commanding Xander to get them both back in the ring but Xander waves him off! Now Xander grabs Asher by the head as the referee begins the count!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!!

Stew-o: Xander takes Asher and runs him to the barricade! BUT ASHER CAUGHT HIMSELF ON THE BARRICADE AND KICKS XANDER IN THE KNEE!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOO!

Stew-o: Xander stumbles back and tries to return with a lariat! BUT ASHER DUCKS IT!

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Deadprez: Xander turns back around INTO A BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK FROM ASHER! Xander stumbles back into the barricade and Asher pummels him against it with forearm shots!

Referee: FOURRRRRRRRRRRR!!

Stew-o: Asher firing with shot after shot and now he pulls Xander off the barricade!

Referee: FIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Deadprez: Asher runs Xander by the back of the neck AND SMASHES HIS FACE INTO THE RING APRON! Xander collapses and Asher takes a second to clutch his hurting spine!

Referee: SIXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX!

Stew-o: Xander is crawling… oh and his face is busted open! Asher tries to grab him up by the shoulders but Ashers back is hurt and that is a LARGE man!

Referee: SEVENNNNNNNN!

Deadprez: Xander is up to his knees… AND DRIVES ASHER BACK INTO THE RING APRON! Xander lifts Asher up by the legs and rolls him into the ring!

Referee: EIGHTTTTTTTTTTT!

Stew-o: Asher rolls himself towards the center of the ring, clutching at his back that shows welts forming! Xander drops to a knee for a second and wipes the blood away from his face!

Referee: NINEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Deadprez: Xander climbs up to his feet and rolls himself in the ring to break the count! He pulls himself along the ropes to the corner! Oh no… he’s not really gonna try this, is he? He gets to the turnbuckles and wipes more blood from his face! XANDER PULLING HIMSELF UP ROPE BY ROPE! HES SETTLED ON THE TOP ROPE AND LINES HIMSELF UP! 450 SPLASH!

Stew-o: KNEES! ASHER GOT THE KNEES UP!! XANDER CRASHED GUT FIRST WITH HIS BODY FOLLOWING MINUTES LATER DIRECTLY INTO ASHERS KNEES!

Deadprez: ASHER ROLLS HIM THROUGH AND HOOKS THE LEG!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOO THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Stew-o: PAYNE KICKED OUT! OH I THOUGHT HE WAS DONE BUT THE REFEREE SAYS HE GOT OUT IN TIME! Asher can’t believe it! He thought he had the match won there! He sees Xander clutching at his abdomen where he landed and now he drags himself to his feet! He beats a goat into his back to try and get some blood flow before taking position! He has Payne in his sights! He’s set up and looks like he’s gonna go for that spinning heel kick! Xander is rising slowly to his feet! Asher is grinning! He know he’s got him dead to rights! Xander turns around… ASHER SPINS… BEAUTY MARK!!!!!!!!!

Deadprez: PAYNE DUCKED IT! XANDER DUCKED UNDERNEATH THE HEAL KICK AND CATCHES GREYSONS LEG ON HIS SHOULDER! HE YANKS THE LEG AND SCOOPS HIM UP! POP UP POWERBOMB! ASHER DRIVEN DOWN ON HIS INJURED BACK! XANDER DRAPES OVER HIM FOR THE COVER!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner…. XAAANNNDDDDEEERRRRR PAAAAAAAYYYYNNEEEEEEE!!!!

(Xander lifts his arms up in victory as he rolls off of Asher, blood still streaking his face)

Deadprez: Asher got cocky. You could see it. He waited too long because he wanted to see the look on Payne’s face. He waited for that “gotcha bitch” moment and it cost him.

(Xander rolls out of the ring and walks up the ramp with his fist high in the air as “It Follows” plays)

Stew-o: A massive victory here for Xander as he looks to get back on a winning track! Gotta wonder if this match is the spark he needs!

(Commercial for Jelly. It’s just jelly that it’s not peanut butter)

( “Trophies” by Drake returns in the background, and we transition back to the stage where HRDO and Flannery McCoy are standing by. )

Flannery: There is so much that goes into EAW television every week. We see drama, personal story development, the hottest rivalries, and larger than life characters.

HRDO: However at its core, the number one aspect about pro wrestling that brings us all to the dance is the actual competition itself! After all, behind all of the pomp and circumstance, wrestling is, indeed, a sport.

Flannery: Thousands of matches take place on a yearly basis inside that squared circle, and every year a handful of matches manage to stand the test of time and set themselves apart beyond all other. Match Of The Year is the most coveted award in the minds of many, and to even quality for such an award you have to be, without a shadow of doubt, one of the best wrestlers on the entire planet!

HRDO: Having won a Match Of The Year award myself I can certainly testify that it requires many hours of endless training, and it also requires chemistry between you and your opponent or opponent(s) to put on a performance that will both inspire countless future Elitists, and live on in the memory of the EAW Universe. Let’s take a look at the nominated contests for the 2018 WOMEN’S MATCH OF THE YEAR!

( Video package displays highlight reels for the 2018 Women’s Match Of The Year nominations, including:
– The Pride vs Jaded Wolfe Hearts winner takes all (Empire)
– Sienna Jade vs Cloud Matsuda (Pain for Pride Festival)
– Astraea Jordan vs Madison Kaline (Pain for Pride Festival)
– Specialists Rampage (Grand Rampage)
– Jaded Hearts vs Crowes Nest (Pain for Pride Festival)
– Astraea Jordan vs Cloud Matsuda (Empire Season Premiere)
– Remi Skyfire vs Raven Roberts (Bloodletter)
– Madison Kaline vs Andrea Valentine (Bloodletter)
– Sienna Jade vs Ms Extreme (REVOLT 1)
– Cleopatra vs Andrea Valentine (Empire) )

( The camera opens back up to Flannery and HRDO, who await the envelope. Once it is handed over to Flannery, she begins to open it. )

Flannery: And the winner for the 2018 Women’s Match Of The Year…….

( Flannery opens up the envelope and nods at the selection. )

Flannery: ASTRAEA JORDAN VS MADISON KALINE, PAIN FOR PRIDE FESTIVAL!!!!

( The crowd cheers at the selection. Soon after, “O Fortuna” by Carl Orff plays, and Madison Kaline walks out to the stage proudly holding her Women’s World Championship, and Amber Keys and Cleopatra walk out with her both holding their Empire Tag Team Championships. Flannery and HRDO nod to them and allow them to take the podium before leaving, and “O Fortuna dies down while Maddie adjusts the podium microphone. )

Madison Kaline: Astraea couldn’t make it this evening to accept her part of the award so I’ll gladly take my trophies and speak my peace. You know even though I wasn’t victorious in that epic match between Astraea Jordan and I, right now I can honestly say that it feels like I came out of that match the real winner after all.

You see after that night my will was completely broken, I felt like I had nothing left to give. Can you even believe that I almost had it in my mind that staying loyal to EAW was a mistake? I could hear the chatter from both hemispheres, Madison Kaline gave up being able to have everything she could ever ask for handed from her in foreign lands only to be second fiddle in EAW…… (pats title on her shoulder) oh what a difference six months makes. Because now Madison Kaline is rubbing shoulders with the greatest names in the history of EAW, and Madison Kaline is carrying championship gold over her shoulders. But I would be remiss if I didn’t go over the people who I need to thank, who helped me reach where I am today…

( Madison unfolds a small piece of paper with a list of names on it. )

Madison: Thank you to Amber Keys, for being such a trailblazer in AWF and inspiring me to become just an all time great such as yourself.

Thank you to Cleopatra for your reign of dominance in your legendary career, giving me as a young trainee someone to aspire to be like.

Thank you to my mentor and trainer, Mr. DEDEDE, for teaching me how to be completely merciless and how to not give a fuck.

Thank you to Andrea Valentine and Raven Roberts for being such easy and fun punching bags since I became champion.

Thank you to my ex boyfriend Keelan for being such a worthless tool and for making it so easy for me to remove you from my life.

Thank you to Stephanie Matsuda for being a good sport following your butt buddies out of this company like the loser that you are after I beat the living shit out of you.

And last but not least, thank you to ME! For being driven, for having a mind of my own, for keep going even when the world told me to quit, and for being a queen in the ranks of queens. Salute to you Maddie, this one’s for you.

( Madison raises her trophy, and “Trophies” by Drake comes back on as Madison, Cleo and Amber are handed several more awards and are soon directed over to the red carpet area. )

Bella Braxton (background): In addition to Women’s Match Of The Year, congratulations to Madison Kaline for winning Women’s World Champion Of The Year, and congratulations to Amber Keys for winning the 2018 Comeback Of The Year!

( We see The Queens Court having pictures taken of them posing with their trophies; Madison Kaline with the Unified Women’s Championship around her waist and holding Women’s Match Of The Year in one hand and Womens Champion Of The Year in the other. Amber Keys and Cleopatra stand side by side holding up their Tag Team Championships, with Amber using her other hand to hold up Comeback Of The Year. )

(DING! DING! DING!)
Bella Braxton: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“What’s Free” by Meek Mill feat Rick Ross & Jay Z hits as SOSA Henderson comes out to the stage)

Deadprez: SOSA Henderson has eyed Elite Answers Wrestling for months and he finally gets the opportunity he deserves on Showdown

Stew-O: You have to incorporate what’s going in his mind now making an impression at The Palace and showing the Elitist in the back why he’s a force to be reckoned with

(SOSA Henderson enters the ring as “Revolution” By The Beatles hits as Jack Haze comes out to the stage smiling and energetic, he then starts to half-skip to the ring)

Deadprez: But here is a man who certainly has been off to a decent start so far on Showdown, Jack Haze who’s already beaten Damon Diesel, The Dragon Slayers and Solomon Hill just to name a few in his short time in Showdown

Stew-O: He should have all the confidence in the world facing SOSA Henderson but remember that SOSA Henderson has a lot on his plate tonight coming into this match so who knows who’ll win at this point

(DING! DING! DING)

Deadprez: SOSA Henderson immediately rolls out of the ring eyeing his opponent, Jack Haze is confused why Henderson hasn’t locked arms with him yet but SOSA Henderson is playing it smart

Stew-O: SOSA Henderson slowly getting into the ring as Jack Haze is leaning back in the corner waiting for the match to actually start, as Henderson gets into the ring Haze is walking towards him actually expecting a lock up but, Haze rising his hand up in the center of the ring but Henderson is still standing near the ropes refusing to do anything with Haze, Haze is trying to convince Henderson to do somet- HENDERSON VICIOUSLY ATTACKING HAZE

Deadprez: SOSA Henderson shoves Jack Haze into the corner Henderson runs towards Haze and, HAZE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, Haze running towards the ropes and THE BASEMENT DROPKICK CONNECTS,

Stew-O: But Henderson is still standing as Haze abruptly gets up confused, Henderson begins walking towards Jack Haze but is noticeably going to walk off the pain in his leg, HAZE TAKING ADVANTAGE GRABBING HIS LEG AND PULLING HIM TO THE FLOOR

Deadprez: Haze dashes to the front of SOSA Henderson and LOCKS IN THE DRAGON SLEEPER, HENDERSON TRYING TO CATCH HIS BREATH AS JACK HAZE PULLS EVERYTHING OUT OF HIS REPERTOIRE, BUT Jack Haze pushing him away Jack Haze is looking for something big as he quickly gets up and, MUSHROOM STOMP! BUT WAIT HENDERSON MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AS HE HITS A SUPERKICK AND CONNECTS WITH A JUMPING FOOT STOMP OF HIS OWN

Stew-O: Henderson then yelling at Haze as he pulls himself to the top rope, SOSA BOMB CONNECTS AND HE GOES FOR THE PIN

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THR-

Deadprez: HAZE KICKS OUT but Henderson isn’t done but HAZE DRAGS HENDERSON TO THE FLOOR AND PUNCHES HIM AS HE RUNS UP TO THE TOP ROPE FOR A MOVE OF HIS OWN HE’S LOOKING FOR UP IN SMOKE BUT HENDERSON DRAGS HIM DOWN THE PUNCH NOT AFFECTING HIM ONE BIT AS HE PUSHES HAZE INTO THE CORNER

Stew-O: SINGLE LEG DROPKICK CONNECTS TO THE FACE OF HAZE. Haze stumbles to the floor as SOSA Henderson is yet again yelling profound words at him

Deadprez: Sosa Henderson then taunts Haze trying to get him to his feet, HENDERSON RUNNING AT HAZE SPEA-BUT HAZE REVERSES IT INTO A DDT IN THE NICK OF TIME AS HE JUMPS UP TO THE TOP ROPE FOR ONE MORE CHANCE AT UP IN SMOKE, AND IN CONNECTS HAZE GOES FOR THE PIN

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! T-

Stew-O: HENDERSON KICKS OUT!

Deadprez: Haze is confused on what he should do next he thought Up in Smoke would finish SOSA Henderson off but he didn’t expect SOSA Henderson to kick out as Henderson drags himself to the bottom rope Haze has now gotten up and gets the audience into a cheer

Stew-O: I think he’s looking for the Pineapple Punch he’s staring at SOSA Henderson with confidence HAZE RUNNING TOWARDS HENDERSO- OH SOSA HENDERSON ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND PULLS JACK HAZE ALONG WITH HIM

Deadprez: OH SOSA HENDERSON CONNECTS WITH THE SPEAR SOSA HENDERSON THROWS JACK HAZE INTO THE RING AS HAZE STUMBLES TO GET UP, PAID IN FULL!!!!

Stew-O: THE DOUBLE CURB STOMP CONNECTS AS SOSA HENDERSON STUMBLES FOR THE COVER

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(DING! DING! DING)

(“What’s Free” by Meek Mill feat Rick Ross & Jay Z hits as SOSA Henderson drags himself to lean on the bottom rope)

Deadprez: SOSA Henderson pulled out the win tonight but I don’t think this is the end of Henderson’s reign of terror in Elite Answers Wrestling

Stew-O: What even is that word? Reign of terror? Whatever, SOSA pulled out the win in the first of many matches in his tenure here and to many more wins of course.

Bella Braxton: The following match is set for one fall! Introducing first, weighing in at one hundred and twenty pounds, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and representing Paradise Lost…The Siren Assassin, Karina-Ann!

(‘Siren Assassin’ by Kristine Elezaj plays as Karina walks down the ramp to the ring.)

Stew-O: Here is a woman who has made it a point in recent weeks to make her mark alongside her partner, Celes Dumont, and has stepped up huge tonight, facing off against the Unified Womens Champion, Madison Kaline!

Deadprez: True, though you know what they say: Best way to make an impression is to punch the biggest person in the yard in the mouth!We’ll see if she bit off more than she can chew, though!

Bella Braxton: Introducing her opponent, accompanied by the Queen’s Court, she is the EAW Unified Womens Champion of the Woooooorrrrrrrrllllllllddddddddddddd….The Queen of Death…Madison Kaline!

(‘O, Fortuna’ by Carl Orff plays as Madison Kaline walks out, Unified Womens title around her waist, flanked by Amber Keys and Cleopatra, each wearing their tag title. After sneering at the crowd, the Queen of Death and her Court make their way to the ring.)

Stew-O: Madison Kaline has made it a point to come out tonight in a show of force, which has to be intimidating for Karina-Ann, Talib, what must be going through the Siren Assassin’s mind right now?

Deadprez: I dunno what’s going through her head right now, but there is a real chance that one of those title belts are going through it in a few minutes! Karina is outnumbered here, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if we didn’t see Celes Dumont making her presence known!

(The referee makes sure that the Court is in Madison’s corner before checking both competitors over and calling for the bell to begin the match.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: Here we go! Kaline and Karina-Ann circle each other in the center of the ring…collar and elbow tie up, and it looks like Madison has the hair! The referee is calling for a break, pulling Madison away from Karina!

Madison Kaline (Off Mic): DON’T YOU TOUCH ME! KEEP YOUR FILTHY HANDS OFF ME, I’M THE CHAMPI-

Deadprez: Karina went for the roll up! Madison had her back turned, and the referee is in position!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!

Deadprez: Kick out though! Madison was almost out before the referee was in position! Karian has a smirk on her face, but that sis better watch out, Madison isn’t smiling at all, she’s trying to burn a hole through the newcomer with her stare! Karina moves in for the tie up…Madison slips it though, and ends up behind her! German Suplex! Karina was dropped right on the back of her head! Madison doesn’t move for the pin, though, she pulls Karina to her feet…OOF, Madison slapped Karina across the face! Karina stumbles away from the Womens champion, but Madison keeps right on her heels!

Stew-O: Karian is leaning against the ropes as Madison approaches…EYE RAKE FROM KARINA-ANN! She got Kaline right in the eyes with her thumb! Madison stumbles away as Karina follows her…BULLDOG! Karina wants to show Madison that she isn’t one to be overlooked! Karina locks Madison in a chinlock, looking to keep the champion grounded! Madison isn’t having it, though, she tucks her shoulder and rolls Karing onto her back! The referee is in position!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO!

Stew-O: Kickout from Karina! Madison, beating Karina to her feet, hits a dropkick, causing the Siren Assassin to drop over the middle rope! Looks like Madison is trying to tell the referee that her eyes are still bothering her from the rake that Karina done earlier…NO, AMBER KEYS IS CHOKING KARINA OVER THE ROPE! The referee doesn’t see! Madison has them distracted…CLEO CRACKS KARINA OVER THE HEAD WITH HER TAG TITLE! Karina drops back into the ring, I think she’s out! Madison moves to make the cover!

(As Madison moves for the pin Celes Dumont jumps over the guard rail and onto the apron, distracting the referee.)

Deadprez: Look out, it’s Celes! The Queen of Death has this match won, but it looks like Celes has caused the referee to be out of position! CELES IS PULLED FROM THE APRON BY CLEOPATRA! The Queen of the Nile is putting the boots to Dumont now as the referee moves to count the pin! Karina isn’t moving!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEEE-

Deadprez: Kickout at the last second! Karina is still in this match! The referee leans back through the ropes, telling Cleopatra to back off Celes, who is crawling her way to the far side of the ring, away from the Court. Celes being out here is good for Karina, but they’re still outnumbered, and the Court are very dangerous! As Karina hasn’t moved much since kicking out, it looks like Madison is climbing to the top rope…MADDIE BOMB! Kaline hits the moonsault, Karina is is bad shape here tonight! The Queen of Death backs away to the far corner, looks like she may be setting up for Afterlife…CELES HAS HER FOOT! Amber Keys on the apron, yelling to the referee, but the official isn’t having any of it and is trying to get her off the apron! Meanwhile, Celes gets into the ring and grabs Madison’s wrist…RAZED IN BLACK! NO! Madison ducks the wristlock clothesline from Celes, being very familiar with that move setup, seeing that Madison herself uses it occasionally, Kaline was about to avoid the attack! M.O.D.! The Fameasser flattens Celes! Amber drops from the apron as Karain has finally regained her footing…Madison turns…SPINNING HEEL KICK…NO, AGAIN MADISON DUCKS AND HITS THE ROPES…AFTERLIFE! Madison hits the Clothesline from Hell! Karina has been leveled! The referee moves into position!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner, by pinfall…the Queen of Death, MAAAAAAADDDDIIIIIISSSSSSOOOOOONNNNNN KAAAAAAALLLLLLLLIIIIINNNNEEEEEE!!!!

(‘O, Fortuna!’ plays as Madison rolls out of the ring and is quickly joined by Amber and Cleopatra who then make their way up the ramp. In the ring, Celes is stirring, and moves to help Karina-Ann to her feet.)

( “Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media comes on the sound system, and Lucas Johnson walks out to the ring who has several stitches on his skull with Albert Hitchman who seems to be limping to the ring…)

Stew: Well ladies and gentleman for the first time in Lucas Johnson’s career with the direction of his business manager Albert Hitchman stepped inside the Extreme Elimination Chamber and actions speak louder than words. Apocalypse dragged Hitchman inside the Chamber and bruised a few of The Evil Genius’ ribs. I talked to The Notorious One backstage today and he told me that he received ten stitches after getting eliminated and landing on that chainsaw courtesy of the Answers World Champion – Theron Nikolas.

Deadprez: Damn I’m surprised this cat isn’t dead to be honest! He got fucking spiked on top of a chainsaw for Gods sakes! Besides that, if this young man at twenty four years old still has his head on after that chamber, he might as well keep his head held high after starting the match at entrant number one and nearly making it to the very end.

Stew: The fact that no one is talking about is that The Wrestling Machine eliminated Hades the Hellraiser first from The Devil’s Playground and nearly shocked the system at Road to Redemption. But hey look Deadprez, after Hitchman has helped him reach to the top tier status on Friday Night’s and landing the big sponsorship with Nike, Lucas is helping his manager and even best friend get into the ring with those bruised ribs.

Deadprez: Apocalypse stopped Albert Hitchman’s games by ripping the Elimination Chamber apart and dragging the legendary manager into the structure and tying chains around both Hitchman and Johnson and tossed them around the ring like rag dolls!

(Lucas Johnson gets a chair so his business manager Albert Hitchman can sit in as he stands in the middle of the ring as you see a trophy case filed of Lucas accomplishments in the sports industry including the NCAA Division One Trophy, Young Lions Cup Trophy, and the EAW New Breed Championship….)

Hitchman: Ladies and Gentlemen my name is Albert Hitchman, excuse me as I struggle for air because that fraud monster Apocalypse used the Elimination Chamber illegally by ripping the structure apart and dragging me into The Devil’s Playground! I am not a superstar, I am just a manager! But to be honest these bruised ribs are totally worth it because that’s what happens when a certain “monster” is exposed. A few weeks ago when StarrStan decided to have preview matches for the Extreme Elimination Chamber I had to get my client ready to step inside Sainten’s Structure for the first time in his career. So how do I get my client ready for the biggest match in his career at the land of the elite? The Evil Genius – Albert Hitchman has a light bulb go off in his head and boom! A FIFTEEN FOOT HIGH STEEL CAGE! Two hungry challengers for the top crown on Dynasty and will do anything in the world to prove that they are the best in the world. Flash forward to the match and Apocalypse was exposed for the fraud that he is. Any normal monster in this business would dominate any competition that steps in-front of him but guess what? That didn’t happen because the unthinkable happened, everyone watching at home doubted my client. Everyone sitting in the Dynasty locker room doubted my client. You know what’s sad? Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane shall we? July 1st, 2015 my client Lucas Johnson made the transition from ameatur wrestling at The Ohio State University and becoming a Division One National Champion to following his dream of wanting to become a professional wrestler. A top scout signed Lucas Johnson to a developmental contract and sooner or later my client debuted at twenty years young on the Voltage brand. A rough start but over time my client gained experience in the wrestling business and was rewarded by gaining the rebranded Young Lions Cup with one goal in mind by ruling the New Breed Throne with an iron fist and flipping the entire company upside down and he did that by becoming the New Breed Champion. Not only did my client become New Breed Champion but my client turned the division from being a joke back to one of the most prestigious titles in this company today. So please ladies and gentlemen take a moment and enjoy this beautiful trophy case…

(The camera takes a moment and zooms in on all of Lucas Johnson’s accomplishments as The Notorious One and The Evil Genius have big smiles on their faces….)

Hitchman: All of these amazing accomplishments but everyone in the back continues to spit my client in the face with disrespect. Quite frankly my client is the wake up call that Dynasty so desperately needs. It’s either you step up or you step down because my client is ready to take out the weak and that starts and ends with Hades the Hellraiser. The most anticipated return in most recent memory – a former Answers World Champion in his own right. But what happend at Road to Redemption? All it took was one moment and bam! ONE…..TWO……THREEE! Three seconds is all my client needed and the mystic of Hades the Hellraiser was wiped away because there is a new legend in the making and he is called “THE NOTORIOUS ONE” LUCASSSSSSSS JOHNNNNNNSOONNNNNN!!!!

(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media plays over the arena as Lucas Johnson and Albert Hitchman head back to the locker room with a look of intensity on their faces….)

Deadprez: Wow! Chilling words from Albert Hitchman as he just warned the Dynasty locker room that big things are ahead for his client Lucas Johnson in 2019!

Stew: The Dynasty locker room? How about calling out Hades the Hellraiser? Lucas Johnson is looking to end Hades return tour before it even begins but if you ask me, I am fully behind the twenty-four year old piece of gold!

(Commercial break for Indeed.com. Even they can help Jack Ripley find a job.)

(Tupac’s “Ambitionz of a Rydah” is the first song to begin playing tonight. All attention turns from the ring to the stage, and out comes TLA.)

Bella Braxton: The following match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first from the Poon Palace located in Miami, Florida .. Weighing in at a solid 210 of pure sex… he is .. T! L! A!

Deadprez: Here comes TLA in his one of a kind, custom Lowrider. Look at that, Stew. Painted blue with the U.K. flag on both doors and.. A picture of the Queen on the hood!

Stew: DP, the Queen is wearing chains, sunglasses and a bandana around the lower half of her face. I’m sure that’s desecration in one way or another, no?

Deadprez: Does that really matter, though? The crowd seems to love it. TLA is all about having a good time, and the fans here in London are having a good time too. Even the multiple employees of the Poon Palace in the lowrider with him are having a good time!

(The lowrider comes to a stop and TLA climbs out of his car, leaving it full of the few beauties that he selected to drive down with him. He approached the ring, climbing onto the apron and ducking in underneath the top rope. “T-L-A!” chants fill the Palace as he climbs onto the turnbuckles and poses, a single arm raised with his hand balled into a fist. He nodded his head to the beat of the song for a moment before dropping his arm and climbing down off of the turnbuckle.)

(TLA’s theme song would fade into The Score’s “Higher”, and everyone’s attention turned to the stage. The cheers for TLA would turn to mostly boos when this next duo made their way onto the stage. Kassidy Heart emerged first, stepping to the beat of the song with a seductive little sway to her hips. The EAW world champion, Ahren Fournier, following closely behind her with his championship rested on his shoulder like a boss. There was no special entrance, even despite Ahren wanting to lead a parade of goats to the ring. Kassidy stopped on the top of the stage, looking toward the ring.)

Bella Braxton: And his opponent from Sydney, Australia – located now in San Diego, California . Being accompanied by the EAW Champion, Ahren Fournier – she is… (Bella coughed, choking up an ‘ahem’) the Stargurl … KASSIDY HEART!

Stew: And there she is, DP. My personal favorite for the future of Empire. Kassidy Heart is a jack of all trades. Established tag team competitor with Sienna Jade. A member of one of the top stables in the company, in Jaded Wolfe Hearts. Manager to the GOAT champion. And a rising singles competitor. The future is bright for Miss Heart!

Deadprez: That is something that I’m not going to argue with you about. You’re a hundred percent right on that. And this alliance she has with Ahren has boosted her into stardom on Showdown, not to mention that recent match she had with DDD. :Whew:

Stew: :whew:

(Kassidy and Ahren would then walk side by side down the ramp, both of them stopping and giving disgusting looks to the lowrider and the Poon Palace girls. Kassidy rolled her eyes and continued walking down the ramp. Upon reaching the ring, she climbed onto the apron where she did her signature pose. Ahren clapped on the outside, demanding everyone give “KassiGoat” the applause that she deserves. After a moment, Kassidy turned and entered the ring.)

Deadprez: I’m extremely excited for this match, Stew. Kassidy Heart has slowly come into her own over the course of this year and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for Showdown’s TLA.

Stew: I had a front row seat for Kassidy’s incredible match against Mr. DEDEDE on Dynasty a few weeks ago. She was brilliant in that match except for at the very end when she ran out of gas. But the fact she could take an absolute living legend like our chairman to his limit and frustrate him the way she did… it just blows my mind. Kassidy is so put together for just 23-years of age.

Deadprez: On the other hand, you have an experienced and savvy veteran in TLA. La Pantera Sexual is one of the reasons why people tune into Showdown week after week. He’s fresh off a successful defense of his Openweight Championship back at Road to Redemption. Consuela Rose Ava definitely pushed TLA to his limit but in the end, TLA broke the string of first defense losses for the Openweight Championship.

Stew: There’s no doubt in my mind that TLA has an incredible chance of going all the way with this title. Of course he has to defend it against Voltage and Dynasty but I’m definitely confident he’ll get past Voltage.

Deadprez: Okay but not Dynasty? Bruh.

Stew: Hey, at least we can both agree that Voltage sucks.

Deadprez: Alright. That’s fair.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: The bell rings and ever the gentleman, TLA extends his hand in a show of sportsmanship. Kassidy looks at it like its diseased and absolutely refuses to shake it.

Kassidy Heart: I don’t know where that’s been!

TLA: Ahhh so that’s how this is gunna be huh?

Deadprez: TLA just backhanded Kassidy across the face for refusing to shake his hand!

Stew: Well the pimp slap was a little unnecessary but here we go.

Deadprez: Don’t hate the Swag Shot.

Stew: A very pissed off Kassidy Heart and an amused TLA are locking up. TLA clearly has the size and strength advantage in this match, but Kassidy has proven herself time and again that she’s up for any challenge thrown at her. TLA and Kassidy go for the traditional lock-up to officially open this match. Both seem determined to get the better of the other, but it’s TLA who finally backs the Queen of Hearts against the ropes. The referee steps in, but TLA breaks the hold before he can begin administering the count. Kassidy pushes herself off the ropes and motions for TLA to come back at her, and we know La Pantera Sexual. He always obliges the ladies.

Deadprez: Kassidy and TLA are circling one another, and TLA initiates the lock up this time. Again, both of them test their strength against one another. Kassidy does her best to keep from getting pushed against the ropes again, but TLA is able to put her right back where they started. TLA locks Kassidy’s arms around the ropes, leaving her chest unprotected, and TLA absolutely unleashes a series of knife edge chops to Kassidy! Kassidy’s chest is turning various shades of red and TLA seems pretty pleased with himself. He backs off and takes a moment to appreciate his handiwork and that seems to really annoy the Empire elitist.

Stew: Kassidy pushes herself off the ropes and absolutely slaps the holy living shit out of TLA. TLA swings wildly at Kassidy, but she ducks, and rushes the ropes! Kassidy comes flying at TLA and grabs him in a side headlock! TLA forces Kassidy back against the ropes again, but Kassidy lets go and runs the ropes again. TLA drops down to avoid her attack, and as Kassidy rebounds, TLA leapfrogs over her! Kassidy comes flying back once more but TLA whips around and sends her crashing to the ground with a shoulder block. Kassidy slaps her hand down on the mat in frustration and scrambles back up to her feet.

Deadprez: The Openweight Champion is there to greet her with a drop kick and Kassidy falls back into the corner. TLA starts putting the boots to her and Kassidy finds herself in a sitting position. On the outside of the ring, the GOAT is shouting for his business manager to get up, but TLA backs up and takes off running! Kassidy eats an extremely stiff knee to the face and TLA drags her out of the corner and goes for the cover.

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO!

Stew: KASSIDY GETS THE SHOULDER UP!

DeadPrez: TLA drops down and wraps Kassidy in a headlock, but Kassidy is able to slip out of it. She goes for a front facelock on TLA, but he says no way! Both of them make their way back up to their feet! They lock up again but this time Kassidy wisely drives her knee into TLA’s gut! He lets go and Kassidy drops down, sweeping TLA’s feet out from underneath of him. Kassidy mounts TLA and begins throwing straight punches to his face! TLA is able to grab Kassidy by the hair and throw her off of him, and he is able to get back to his feet. Kassidy comes rushing back at him, but TLA gets his foot up, catching Kassidy right in the jaw. She falls back and TLA is quick to grab her up by the hair. He nails Kassidy with a ‘Very Mexican Uppercut’ and throws her into the corner. Kassidy moves as TLA comes flying at her, but TLA manages to grab the top rope and stop himself before crashing into the turnbuckles! Kassidy grabs TLA from behind and rolls him up!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO!

Stew: TLA KICKS OUT!!!

DeadPrez: Kassidy immediately grabs TLA from behind again and looks to bring him down with a German suplex! TLA catches her in the side of the head with an elbow and Kassidy’s loses her grip! TLA slips behind Kassidy, hooks her arms, and brings her down to the mat with a nice looking Tiger suplex! TLA goes for the cover but Kassidy is able to kick out before the referee can even drop down to make a count. TLA pulls Kassidy up and tries to whip her across the ring, but the determined Queen of Hearts plants her feet. She attempts to reverse and send TLA across the ring, but he grabs a hold of the ropes! Kassidy tries again, but TLA is a little to strong!

Stew: Kassidy kicks TLA’s arm off the ropes, HITS HIM AS HARD AS SHE CAN IN THE JAW WITH THAT FOREARM SHOT, and tries to throw him across the ring again! TLA is refusing to budge so Kassidy slams her foot in his stomach and begins throwing fists and kicks! TLA is able to fight through this flurry of offense and nail Kassidy in the face with a forearm of his own! That causes Kass to stumble back and TLA looks to take her head off with a clothesline! Kassidy ducks! She hits TLA with a right hand! TLA fires back with a slap to Kass’ face! Kassidy nails TLA with a kick to the thigh, and she follows it up with another one! TLA snatches her by the hair and wraps his arms around her neck, but Kassidy drops down to her knees! She takes TLA’s feet out from underneath of him again, and mounts him once again! TLA throws her off before she can throw and punch, and he quickly jumps on top of Kass!

Deadprez: That brings the champ around the ring and Ahren jumps up on the apron! TLA is momentarily distracted and that allows Kassidy to kick TLA off of her and get back up! Kassidy sees the referee tied up with Ahren and she kicks TLA right between the legs! What a bitch move! Booo!

Stew: Ahren jumps down but the damage has been done! Kassidy immediately grabs TLA and locks him in the camel clutch! She’s got that hold locked in as tightly as she can, but TLA is using what strength he has at the moment to inch himself sideways to the ropes!

Deadprez: TLA IS ABLE TO GET HIS HAND ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! The referee starts counting and Kassidy waits until the last possible second before letting go! She gets back up to her feet and helps TLA up as well. Kassidy wraps her arm around the back of TLA’s neck, but TLA pushes her off. TLA straightens up but Kassidy is right there! STEP-UP ENZIGURI! TLA falls back and Kassidy grabs him by the neck and spikes him into the mat with a DDT!!! KASSIDY WITH THE COVER!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEEEE-

Stew: TLA KICKS OUT!

Deadprez: Kassidy can’t believe it! She slowly gets up to her feet and looks down at TLA. La Pantera Sexual is one of the hardest people in this company to put away and a DDT just isn’t going to do the trick.

Stew: Kassidy looks to the outside where the EAW Champion is shouting at her to stay on TLA and be aggressive. Kassidy turns her attention back to her opponent and reaches down to grab him. TLA with the thumb to the eye!! Kassidy stumbles back and falls back against the ropes!! TLA returns to a vertical base, grabs Kassidy by the neck, and plants her in the middle of the ring with a running bulldog! He grabs a handful of hair, lifts Kassidy’s head up, and slams her face right into the mat for good measure!

Deadprez: TLA jerks the Queen of Hearts up and throws her across the ring! Kassidy hits the ropes but she somehow manages to duck TLA’s clothesline attempt! She comes flying back at TLA from the other side but TLA catches her!! TILT-A-WHIRL BACKBREAKER!!! TLA GOES TO THE TOP ROPE!!! TLA FLIES!!! 420!!! THE BADDEST HOMBRE ON THE PLANET JUST HIT ONE OF THE PRETTIEST SHOOTING STAR PRESSES I HAVE EVER SEEN!!! TLA ROLLS ON TOP OF KASSIDY AND HOOKS THE LEG!!!

Stew: BUT AHREN IS BACK ON THE APRON NOW!! THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION HAS THE REFEREE’S ATTENTION!! TLA SEES THIS AND HE GETS UP!!! HE WALKS OVER TO WHERE THE GOAT AND THE REFEREE ARE ARGUING AND HE SHOVES THE REFEREE OUT OF THE WAY!!! THE OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION AND THE EAW WORLD CHAMPION ARE NOSE TO NOSE!!!

Deadprez: Ohmygod!!! This could be a preview of a future World Championship match on Showdown!! Ahren Fournier versus TLA for that belt has blockbuster match written all over it!!! I wish we could hear what they’re saying to one another!

TLA to Ahren: Puta madre! Que te folle un pez!

Stew: But the time TLA is wasting on Ahren is giving Kassidy a chance to recover! She’s up to her knees now and she sees what’s going on between TLA and Ahren! Kassidy pushes herself up to her feet and rushes towards TLA!

Deadprez: TLA MOVES!!!

Stew: Ahren reaches out and stops Kassidy before she crashes into him! Thank god for that! No one wants to see GOAT on GOAT abuse!

Deadprez: TLA WITH A DROPKICK FROM BEHIND!! KASSIDY SLAMS INTO AHREN AND THE CHAMP IS KNOCKED OFF THE APRON! TLA CLOTHESLINES KASSIDY OVER THE TOP ROPE AND SHE LANDS RIGHT BESIDE HER PARTNER! THIS SOLD OUT CROWD IS SOLIDLY BEHIND TLA!!

Stew: TLA IS UP ON THE TOP ROPE NOW AND HE’S JUST WAITING FOR MAGNUM OPUS TO GET UP!!!

Deadprez: Ahren is the first one to get up and he helps Kassidy up as well. Neither of them see TLA waiting at the top!! TLA launches himself off the top turnbuckle!!! BURNOUT! BURNOUT!! BURNOUT!!!

Stew: TLA TAKES OUT BOTH MEMBERS OF MAGNUM OPUS WITH THAT DIVING 360 CORKSCREW SENTON!!!

Deadprez: TLA JUMPS TO HIS FEET AND HE GRABS A HOLD OF KASSIDY! HE THROWS THE EMPIRE ELITIST INTO THE RING AND HE CLIMBS BACK UP ON THE APRON! TLA JUMPS ON THE TOP ROPE!! SPRINGBOARD SENTON!! TLA LANDS ON TOP OF KASSIDY!!! HE’S BACK UP TO HIS FEET!!! TLA RUNS TO THE OPPOSITE SET OF ROPES!! HE LEAPS!!! HE FLIES!!! SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT!!!

Stew: KASSIDY MOVES!!!

Deadprez: TLA CRASHES TO THE MAT!!!

Stew: BOTH OF OUR COMPETITORS ARE DOWN!!! Wow!!!

Deadprez: The crowd is urging both of them to get up though! This match has been fun from the start! Both TLA and Kassidy have given it their all and despite the interference from Ahren Fournier, it’s been pretty back and forth.

Stew: I think it’s pretty fitting that both Kassidy and TLA are getting back up to their feet simultaneously. Kassidy is using the ropes to pull herself up and TLA is doing the same. Both of them look across the ring at one another and both of them look ready to kill the other! There’s nothing on the line for either of these two except pride and bragging rights and that’s what’s driving both of them to meet one another in the center of the ring again! The words they’re exchanging aren’t being picked up by our cameras but something surely struck a nerve in Kassidy! She slams her fist into TLA’s chest and begins wailing away on him again!

Deadprez: TLA piefaces her down to the ground and looks to take Kassidy’s head off with a kick! But Kassidy ducks and jumps back to her feet!! She hits TLA in the jaw with a forearm! He fires back with a stiff right hand! Kassidy follows up with a open-handed palm strike! TLA with a massive knife-edge chop to Kassidy! Kassidy fires off a stiff side kick! TLA with the Very Mexican Uppercut! Now both of them are throwing hands!!! This match has broken down into a brawl and these two incredible Elitists are just beating the shit out of one another now!!! TLA has busted Kassidy’s lip and she’s bleeding from the mouth! Kassidy seems a little disturbed by this and she lets out a primal scream! She drives her shoulder into TLA’s midsection and forces him back against the turnbuckles!!! Repeatedly Kassidy drives her shoulder into TLA’s midsection!! She backs off just a bit and starts unleashing those shoot style kicks to TLA! Kassidy might be small but she’s deceptively powerful and she’s definitely leaving her mark on the the Openweight Champion!!!

Stew: TLA just took a wild swing at Kassidy and managed to catch her in the side of the head! Kassidy is stunned! TLA forces himself out of the corner and absolutely crushes her with a forearm to the face! Kassidy hits the mat!!! TLA grabs her up and puts her in position for the Mexican Destroyer!!

Deadprez: KASSIDY SLIPS OUT OF THE MOVE!!!

Stew: KASSIDY SWEEPS TLA’S FEET OUT FROM UNDERNEATH HIM AND GOES FOR THE FAIRYTALE ENDING!!!

Deadprez: TLA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!!! HE GRABS KASSIDY FROM BEHIND!!! HE ROLLS KASSIDY UP!!!

Stew: KASSIDY ROLLS OUT!!! SHE GETS BACK TO HER FEET!!! SHE QUICKLY GOES UP TOP!!! I THINK SHE’S GUNNA TRY AND END THIS MATCH WITH THE HEART ATTACK!!!

Deadprez: IF KASSIDY CAN CONNECT WITH THAT TOP ROPE STUNNER THIS MATCH WILL BE OVER!!

Stew: BUT WAIT!!!

Deadprez: THAT’S ONE OF THE POON PALACE EMPLOYEES!!! THAT WOMAN JUST RAN OUT OF THE LOW RIDER, JUMPED ON THE APRON, AND GRABBED KASSIDY BY THE ANKLE!!! KASSIDY REPOSITIONS HERSELF AND BOOTS THE POON OFF THE APRON! OH MY GOD! NOOOO! I HOPE SHE’S OKAY!!!

Stew: TLA IS BACK UP AND HE GRABS KASSIDY OFF THE TURNBUCKLE!!

Deadprez: BUT AHREN IS UP ON THE APRON NOW AND HE HAS HIS CHAMPIONSHIP!!! HE SLAMS THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP INTO TLA’S FACE AND TLA IS DONE!!! KASSIDY FALLS FROM TLA’S ARMS AND HITS THE MAT BESIDE HIM!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: The referee has no choice but to call for the bell! Thanks to the out of line Poon Palace bitch and Ahren Fournier this match just fell apart at the end!

(Ahren pulls Kassidy out of the ring, wipes the blood from her face with sleeve of his fur coat, and together both members of Magnum Opus begin to make their way up the ramp.)

Deadprez: What a shame there’s no clear winner tonight. I really hope we get a rematch between these two in the near future.

Stew: Ditto. We’ll be right back!

(Commercial break featuring the Jaded Wolfe Hearts swatching and playing with the upcoming, soon-to-be released Naked Reloaded palette from Urban Decay :wow:)

( “Trophies” by Drake returns in the background, and we transition back to the stage where HRDO and Flannery McCoy are standing by. )

Flannery: HRDO, you know EAWs roots and its foundational principles better than almost anybody else, so I’m sure you would be the first person to go to if we wanted to get a true definition to the word “EXTREME.”

HRDO: Hahaha, well Flannery to tell you the truth extreme is as much of an adjective as it is a noun. Sometimes extreme moments just happen, and sometimes there are individuals who walk through these doors who have it in their blood. There have been countless jaw-dropping, cringe inducing, eye popping moments that stand out through the duration of EAW history. Back when the “E” in EAW stood for Extreme and every match was Extreme Rules, we saw moments that stood the test of time such as Extreme Enigma diving off a 30 foot ladder with a swanton through Captain Charisma, or the founder of this company Ronn Banks being piledrove from the top rope through a flaming, broken glass, thumbtack filled table!!!

Flannery: HRDO?

HRDO: OR MR. DEDEDE BEING THROWN FROM THE TOP OF THE TITANTRON!!!!

Flannery: HRDO!

HRDO: OR HEART BREAK BOY BEING BURNED ON A GODDAMN CROSS!!!!!!

Flannery: HRDO!!!

( HRDO stops himself, embarrassed. )

Flannery: Take it easy!

HRDO: Sorry, got a little carried away.

Flannery: Well you weren’t the only one, because despite EAW now priding itself on elite wrestlers, some of our Elitists have definitely pushed boundaries way further than anybody could have predicted. Here are some of the most gruesome moments of 2018, and the nominations for 2018 Extreme Moment Of The Year!

( Video package displays highlight reels for the 2018 Extreme Moment Of The Year nominations, including:
– Mr. DEDEDE killing Jamie O’Hara with the Equalizer at the 2018 Draft show
– Raven Roberts paralyzing Revy
– Cage decimating his No Way Out match opponents at Wrath of the Dragon
– Apocalypse killing The Core Brothers on Dynasty
– Madison Kaline brutalizing Cloud on Empire, Astraea and Constance Blevins in her return
– Remi Skyfire and Raven Roberts’ chaotic brawl at Bloodletter
– Drake King hitting Raven with a branding iron at No Regards. )

( Return to the stage, where HRDO has been handed the envelope. )

HRDO: And the winner for the 2018 Extreme Moment of The Year goes to….

( HRDO opens the envelope and grins. )

HRDO: MR. DEDEDE DECIMATING JAMIE O’HARA AT THE 2018 EAW DRAFT!!!!

“ILLEST MUTHAFUCKA ALIVE!!!!!!”

( “Illest Muthafucka Alive” by Jay Z and Kanye West plays over the sound system. The crowd becomes unglued with a massive mixed reaction, where some people jump out of their seat to cheer and the others are booing with everything they’ve got. However Mr. DEDEDE does not come out to the stage, instead his niece, Veena Adams is the one who walks out with a big smile on her face and a neck brace around her neck. She smiles and waves at the fans, and “Illest Muthafucka Alive” dies down as Veena takes the podium. )

Veena Adams: Hello hello hai! Remember me? It’s the GOATest of all GOATs herself, the “Killa Queen” Veena Adams! 😀

( The crowd boos the hell out of Veena. )

Veena: Great to see you all too. Anyways, Uncle Ryan was not able to make it here tonight as he is still recuperating from the vicious mauling done by Camwhore Ella Ava and her bitch sister, so I will happily accept his awards for him. But if Uncle Ry were here he would happily gloat on about how he’s the greatest of all time, how you all owe your livelihoods to him, how all women are whores who should bow before his mighty phallus, and many of the other universal truths that my uncle speaks on a weekly basis!

Anyways, I’ll be sure to get this bad boy over to his trophy room the next time I visit the Ryan Adams Estate; but for those who are concerned about my uncle’s wellbeing, just know I got to check on him after Road to Redemption and BOY let me tell you all… if you thought Gawdzilla was scary this year just wait until what he’s got planned next. Wouldn’t wanna be anyone on the Dynasty roster I’ll tell you that. OKthxbai!

( “Trophies” by Drake comes back on and Veena Adams is directed off the stage, and is handed several more trophies as she is guided over to the red carpet area. )

Bella Braxton (background): Congratulations to Mr. DEDEDE as well for also winning Shocking Moment Of The Year for retiring Ronn Banks, Feud Of The Year with Cameron Ella Ava, and the coveted Promoer Of The Year award!

( We see Veena struggling to hold the four golden, 22 inch trophies for FOTY, POTY, SMOTY and EMOTY in her arms by herself. She still smiles wide for the cameras as the paparazzi snap pictures. )

(‘Pray for Em by Meek Mill plays as Malcolm Jones makes his way to the ring. He stops at the ramp as ‘Odee’ by A-Boogie follows, as well as Chris Elite as the two men reluctantly enter the ring together.)

Bella Braxton: Making their way to the ring, the team of.. THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION, MALCOLM JONES… AND CHRRISSS, ELLLIIIITTTEEEE!!!!!!

Stew-O: This team, “The Blicky Boyz” are out here to try and dethrone the tag team champions. With the problems Marrkade has been having, there’s a good chance of these two winning tag team gold.

Deadprez: Let us not forget that these two were the original MarrKade in terms of going from partners to enemies. They faced off in the main event of Pain for Pride Festival and then they faced off again at Territorial Invasion so I’m sure no love has been lost, but they put those differences to the side tonight in order to capture more championship gold capping off an amazing year. It’ll be interesting to see how both teams co-exist tonight.

(‘Glory’ by The Score hits as Daryl Kinkade makes his way to the ring, and Charlie Marr eventually follows, in a slower pace than usual.)

Bella Braxton: And their opponents.. At a combined weight of 440 pounds.. THEY ARE, THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS… CHARLIE MARR AND DARYL KINKADE… MAAARRRKKAAAADDDEEE!!!!!!!

Deadprez: These two have had conflicts with each other since Road to Redemption, from Daryl tossing the tag title at Marr, to Charlie eliminating Daryl in the Chamber. If they don’t sort themselves out, they’re sure to lose their championships tonight.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: This match is now underway, and Malcolm Jones is starting off with Charlie Marr. The two get into a collar and elbow tie up, and Marr is able to wrap around behind Jones. Marr looks for a takedown but Jones hits him with a vicious elbow, immediately causing him to release the hold! Charlie steps back and it allows Jones to connect with a Belly to Back Suplex! Jones now puts Charlie in a chinlock, trying to keep him away from his partner, Daryl Kinkade. Marr though, isn’t trying to reach Kinkade, and is instead trying to make it to his feet. Marr makes it to his feet and elbows away at Jones, but Elite tags himself in without Marr noticing.

Deadprez: Marr irish whips Jones to the ropes, but Chris Elite hits him with a crossbody from the top rope, before going for a cover!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO!

Deadprez: Marr kicks out but Elite goes back to the top rope, but he went to Marr’s corner to do so, and now Kinkade is grabbing the leg of Elite, stopping him from jumping! Marr now runs to the top rope and hits Chris, before climbing up as well! Marr, looking for a superplex early on, but MALCOLM JONES!!

Stew-O: MARR KICKS OUT AGAIN!! Daryl Kinkade reaching his hand out, wanting to get tagged in! But Marr, doesn’t want to get tagged in! He’s still hesitant to tag Daryl in after Road to Redemption!

Jones fires back though, with a huge enzuigiri, sending Marr stumbling into his corner, before Kinkade tags himself in! Jones runs towards Kinkade, but he’s met with a huge Slingshot spear! Chris Elite attempts a springboard maneuver, but Kinkade sweeps the leg, dropping Elite outside of the ring! Jones gets to a knee but Kinkade connects with a roundhouse kick before going towards the ropes. Kinkade waiting in the corner for Jones to get to his feet, but now Marr tags himself in!

Deadprez: Kinkade confused as to why Marr tagged himself in, but now Marr pulls Kinkade out the ropes, stopping him from getting hit with a big Clothesline by Jones! Marr quickly gets in and hits a German Suplex on Malcolm, and now he backs up himself! THE CHARING CROS- NO, JONES DUCKS THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE, BUT MARR CONNECTS WITH A BIG BOOT!! Marr, going up to the second rope, but once again Daryl tags himself in, and he goes up to the top rope himself! But Jones runs up to the top rope and is looking for a Superplex! But Marr now, helps Daryl push Jones off of the turnbuckles, before Kinkade hits a diving dropkick! Kinkade looking at Marr with a grin, BUT HE’S ROLLED UP BY JONES!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEE-

Stew-O: KINKADE KICKS OUT!! These two have been off their game after their conflicts going into Road to Redemption, and if they keep this up they could very well lose tonight, as Jones tags Chris in! Chris goes straight into the ring and before Kinkade could come to his senses Big Bhris hits him with the 5 Borough Combo!! Kinkade rolls out of the ring, and now Chris, runs towards the ropes, SUICI- OH NO!!! A KNEE TO THE SIDE OF ELITE’S FACE BY MARR, AS HE WAS GOING FOR A SUICIDE DIVE!!!

Daryl Kinkade runs in to check on Marr, BOX OFFICE SMASH BY ELITE!!! Elite tosses Marr into the ring now, and Marr slowly gets to his feet. THE C-NOTE BY JONES!!! WHAT A SPEAR, AND THE COVER NOW!!!

Deadprez: MARR GETS HIS FOOT ON THE ROPES!!! JONES CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!! Jones, arguing with the referee, thinking he should have won, BUT MARR ROLLS JONES UP AGAIN, THIS TIME USING THE ROPES FOR LEVERAGE!!!

Kinkade flips out of it! Roundhouse kic- ducked! AND A BICYCLE KNEE BY ELITE!!!

Stew-O: Malcolm Jones is back in his corner, and Elite manages to tag him in, while Marr is slowly getting up on the outside. Jones gets into the ring now, and just starts stomping away at Daryl, until he’s left seated in the corner, basically lifeless. Jones backs up, and charges at Daryl but Kinkade rolls from under Jones, and hits him with a German Suplex, leaving them both laid out! Kinkade gets to his feet, and attempts a Superkick on Jones who got to his feet, but he gets out of the way, but Kinkade, hits ELITE WITH A SUPERKICK INSTEAD!!! Jones though, hits a German Suplex of his own, and now Kinkade is left rolling to the opposite corner! Kinkade slowly gets to his feet as Jones charges, AND HITS A RUNNING KNEE, BUT NOW MARR IS THE LEGAL MAN!!! Jones unaware of this, as he throws Kinkade to the ground to attempt a cover, but Marr, THE CHARING CROSS TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!!!! THE DISCUS CLOTHESLINE CONNECTS!!!! THAT’S IT, AND MARR GOES FOR THE COVER TO RETAIN!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Bella Braxton: Here are your winners… AND STILL, EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…. MAAARRRRKAAADDEEE!!!!!!

(‘Glory’ by the Score hits as Charlie Marr id handed the tag team titles before helping Daryl Kinkade up to his feet.)

Deadprez: They did it, despite their issues, they managed to win this match, and retain their tag team gold! What a win for Marrkade here tonight!

( “Trophies” by Drake can be heard playing in the background and golden lights shine on the stage for the final time as Flannery McCoy and HRDO return to the podium. )

HRDO: EAW has always embodied the word “Elite” long before it was ever put into the company name. From day one the standard of being a professional athlete contracted by EAW has been world class, and though it takes great sacrifice to even last a year in the big leagues, great fortitude also comes with great reward.

Flannery: The coveted Elitist Of The Year award is the highest measure of excellence in the world of not only pro-wrestling, but in all of professional sports. It is up there with the Heisman trophy, it is up there with the ESPYs, it is even comparable to winning World Championship. Winning Elitist Of The Year simply means that of all EAW Elitists in your gender division, you were the absolute greatest.

HRDO: To even qualify for this award you have to be able to dominate in any division of any combat sport on the planet, you have to be physically and mentally a cut above over just about every league of competition that you can enter. Sienna Jade has already earned her Elitist Of The Year through merit, proving herself to be the greatest female athlete in the company today and representing her REVOLT roots proud. Now we will recognize the greatest male athletes — a very concise, but also consistent list — and identify who of these extraordinarily gifted athletes, is truly the best in the world.

( Video package displays highlights and accomplishments from the nominees, including:
– Chris Elite
– Rex McAllister
– Theron Nikolas
– Cage
– Darkane. )

( Broadcast opens back up to the stage, where HRDO and Flannery have the envelope placed in front of them. Flannery McCoy slowly opens it. )

Flannery McCoy: I love it! The winner of the 2018 ELITIST OF THE YEAR AWARD, AS WELL AS EAW CHAMPION OF THE YEAR AND EAW CHAMPION OF THE YEAR!!!! DIAMOND CAGE!!!!!!!

(“Smells Like Teen Spirit” By Nirvana hits to a LOUD OVATION as sends pass by, Diamond Cage steps out with shades and a leather jacket on as the crowd continues to give their respect and adulation to the former EAW Champion.)

(Cage steps up to the podium and has his award in hand as he waits for the ovation to die down.)

Cage: This going to piss a lot of people off. But many was deserving but they obviously ain’t win. 2018 was a great year. I’d like to think the chamber match capped that bitch off well. I want to thank all the people who had the distinct honor of getting they ass whipped by me, aka the entire Showdown roster. I want to thank me for being me. Chris Elite probably in the back and had his speech ready but, I want to thank him for thinking he was good enough to be this years Elitist of the Year. This award is kinda lame though, So I’d like to announce myself as the Extremist of the year for 2018. I’m different from these elitist who be out here hammerlocking and grabbing each other instead of shooting they hands. But yeah, EAW Champion of the year, I mean who else could it be? Certainly not the Queen of EAW. And Rex was kinda lame, no offense. And then the match of the year, just proves my worth to EAW. I’m the anchor around this place and I have been for a long ass time. Also want to specifically dedicate this award to the future of EAW from 2012, Erik Yung, Moonlight Predator, Xavier McCoy, this one is for you because that is what this company would prefer. Rex should thank me, I carried homie to an award, he was the loser of the match but whenever he want to get his ass whipped again he just gotta meet me halfway with it. Happy New Year to all my fans out there. This one is for my mentor, and yes, I’m talking about you uncle ruckus.

(Cage begins to take his award and leave, but he comes back)

Cage: And by all means, I’m not done in EAW. I’m just getting started. When I come back, I’m going to be more violent, more vicious, more intense than I’ve ever been. I’m going to be the World Champion again, I’m going to be the man around here. Everyone else now is living in peaceful times in EAW, cause when I come back, I’m bringing hell with me and I’m changing the game once again. So you don’t know when, you don’t know where, but you know for sure it’s happening and when it happens don’t say you wasn’t warned.

(Cage takes his award, raises it high and turns to leave. He is also handed the 2018 EAW Champion Of The Year award and the 2018 Match Of The Year award, tucking two trophies under one arm and holding the other in his right hand as he exits. The camera then returns to the ring where Bella Braxton is standing. )

Bella Braxton: The following contest is set for one fall! Introducing first, from Compton, California, weighing in at one hundred and fourteen pounds…Serena Bennett!

(‘She knows (feat. Amber Coffman)’ by J Cole hits and as the beat drops, Serena comes out to the stage, smiling wide and showing off her jewelry. She skips down the ramp, slapping hands with fans along the way, and slides into the ring. Upon entry to the ring, she jumps onto the middle turnbuckle to pose before jumping down and hopping in place in the corner.)

Stew-O: Serena impressed everyone with her debut at Road to Redemption, lasting all the way until the final two, even outlasting Tyler Wolfe, the then champion!

Deadprez: THat may be, but she didn’t get the job done, and Stephon Hunte fired her after the match! If Kendra hadn’t came in with a contract, Serena would be back on the indie circuit right now! Apparently all Kendra wanted in return was the chance to wrestle Serena here tonight at the Palace!

Bella Braxton: Introducing her opponent, she is the former Vixens World Champion and current Co-General Manager of Empire…The OG Vixen…Kendra Shamez!

(‘Needles and Pins’ by the Deftones plays as Kendra walks onto the top of the ramp with her signature robe with her last name, “SHAMEZ” printed on the back with rhinestones. Kendra smiles as she warmly embraces the EAW universe. Kendra walks down the ramp and before entering the ring, she takes a look around at the screaming fans and blows a kiss paired with a flirty wink.)

Stew-O: Kendra Shamez is a multiple time World’s champion, a former Specialists champion, and from the looks of things seems to still be in amazing shape! It will be interesting to see how the time away has affected her, though, as it has been some time since Kendra has entered a ring as a competitor.

Deadprez: For sure, Stewie, the fact that Kendra chose Serena as her return match speaks volumes for the newcomers future here in EAW, a good showing here tonight can make Serena Bennett for the rest of her career!

(Kendra removes her robe and carefully folds it to hand to the time keeper. She rolls her shoulders and jumps in place while Serena sits on the turnbuckle, seemingly relaxed. The official calls for the bell to begin the match.)

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: Kendra looking to start things off with a bang, immediately initiates the tie up with Serena, powering the smaller woman into the corner! The official calls for the break, which Kendra gives freely…backhand chop from Serena! She’s wanting to let Kendra know she’s not here to lay down for the OG Vixen! KENDRA RETURNS THE FAVOR! Big chop from Kendra Shamez, and there is already a welt on Serena’s chest! Prez, I don’t know if trying to go chop for chop with Kendra was a wise move from Bennett!

Deadprez: It may not have been the smartest move to make, but it was damn sure bold! Hair beal now from Kendra, and Serena is on her back in the center of the ring…Kendra off the ropes with a knee drop! That landed right across the face of Serena! Now with a handful of Serena’s hair, Kendra is pulling her vertical, and she hooks the tights…NO, the suplex is countered by Serena with a knee to the head! Serena shifts position….snap suplex! She powered Shamez over! Serena transitions to a mounted position and starts driving forearms into the face of Kendra, now Serena transitions, it looks like she’s going for an armbar, maybe trying for the quick submission here!

Stew-O: Kendra makes it to the ropes, she was able to take advantage of her long frame to reach the ropes, breaking the hold! Serena breaks the hold and looks to lock in a front face lock, but Kendra slips the hold and sweeps the legs of Bennett! Kendra rolls out of the ring to catch her breath, she clearly wasn’t expecting the level of offense Serena is dishing out! Bennett is on the apron…she’s going for a running meteora! NO, KENDRA CATCHES BENNETT AND DROPS HER SPINE FIRST ON THE RING APRON, THAT’S THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING! The official is letting the rule s goa little lax here, and rather than starting the count is checking on Serena, who Kendra left laying on the ring apron. The OG VIxen slides back into the ring and drags Serena away from the ropes….Shamez with the pin!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEE-

Deadprez: Kickout from Serena! Kendra doesn’t let up, though, she runs to the ropes…LIONSAULT! Kendra hooks the legs once again!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO!

Deadprez: Another kickout from Bennett! She’s still in this match! Kendra keeps the pressure going, though, and again pulls Serena to her feet….SMALL PACKAGE! Serena caught Kendra ina small package!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO!

Deadprez: Another kickout, the referee is definitely earning their salary in this match! Both these women are out to prove something tonight! Kendra wants to prove she can still hang with the new breed of Empire’s roster, and Serena wants to prove she can hang with an absolute legend in the ring like Kendra!

Stew-O: Serena beats Kendra to her feet and meets Shamez with a dropkick, but Kendra doesn’t stay down long! She’s back on her feet only to be caught in an arm drag from Serena! Kendra backs her way to the corner! Serena with full steam ahead to the corner…NO, KENDRA SLIPS PAST SERENA AND HITS A BACKBREAKER, NEARLY BENDING SERENA IN HALF OVER HER KNEE! Shamez holds Serena over her knee, Bennett’s feet not even touching the ground, as the official checks to make sure Serena wants to continue! She doesn’t quit, and Kendra lifts Serena to her feet…STO ONTO THE CENTER TURNBUCKLE! Serena looks like she may be unconscious! Kendra with the pin!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEE-

Deadprez: NO! Serena’s foot was on the rope! The referee caught it at the last moment! Serena is still in this match, but she’s taking a beating, if she doesn’t reverse Kendra’s momentum soon then Kendra is going to leave here tonight with her arms raised! Kendra pulls Serena to her feet…JAWBREAKER FROM BENNETT! Serena rolls to the apron and pulls herself to her feet, briefly holding her back in pain…Kendra is back on her feet…SPRINGBOARD METEORA! Serena hooks the legs for the pin!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREE-

Deadprez: Kickout from Kendra, but with a little less authority than the last time, Serena is wearing Shamez down just as much as Kendra is wearing her down, it seems! Kendra is slowly getting to her feet as Serena again hits the ropes….MOONLIGHT! Serena hit the running neckbreaker, followed by another! Remember folks, Kendra Shamez had to retire due to a broken neck, so who knows the actual damage that Moonlight is doing to the neck of the OG Vixen? Serena pulls her to a standing base and slips behind Shamez before tipping her! Serena leans over and hooks the waist of Shamez…DEADLIFT GERMAN SUPLEX! WHat a display of strength from Serena! Kendra was dropped right on her neck too! Serena goes for the pin!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEE-

Deadprez: No, last second kickout from Shamez! Serena is hitting Kendra with just about everything she has, but so far it’s not been enough to finish off Shamez!

Stew-O: A big part of that is the size difference between the two, Kendra is simply more powerful than Serena who is having to maintain a high intensity offense to keep up with the Hall of Famer. The biggest question is if she can maintain this pressure long enough to finally crack Kendra? Kendra to her feet now, and Shamez goes for a collar and elbow tie up, again looking to assert her strength over Bennett, but this time Serena shifts her weight and sends Kendra to the mat with a hiptoss! Serena hits the ropes, but Kendra is on her feet….SPEAR! Kendra Shamez stopped Serena dead in her tracks with a spear that seemingly cut the smaller woman in half! Kendra is holding her neck, though, the referee is checking her to make sure she’s still able to continue! Serena has targeted the neck of Shamez for most the match, but Kendra needs to watch out, Serena is stirring behind her! The former personal assistant has more than proved these last couple weeks that she absolutely belongs in the ring, and she’s once again pushing herself to stand after the brutal spear from Shamez…Kendra warily brushes the referee aside and moves toward Serena…TRAP QUEEN! SERENA WAS JUST A STEP QUICKER THAN SHAMEZ AND GOT THE TAKEDOWN WITH THE ANACONDA VICE! KENDRA IS FLAILING FOR AN ESCAPE, BUT SERENA HAS HER IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!!! KENDRA ROLLS HER OVER! SERENA’S SHOULDERS ARE PINNED!

Referee: ONNNNNNNNNEEEEEEE! TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: That’s it! Kendra SHamez was able to counter the Anaconda vice into a pinning situation, an absolute veteran move if I’ve ever seen one! Serena absolutely took it to Kendra during this match, though!

(‘Needles and Pins’ begins to play as Kendra pulls herself to her feet using the ring ropes, then extends her hand to Serena who looks at the offering in shock.)

Deadprez: Let’s see what happens here! Will Serena take Kendra’s hand?

(She does after a moment and Shamez pulls her to her feet and raises the arm of Serena. After a moment Serena rolls out of the ring, leaving Kendra to bask in the adoration of the crowd.)

Crowd: YOU STILL GOT IT! YOU STILL GOT IT!

Stew-O: Nothing but appreciation from the capacity packed crowd tonight for Kendra Shamez, and from the looks of things she could still make a go of things in the ring if she wanted to!

(Kendra holds her neck and waves to the crowd as the camera fades out.)
(Commercial for Ahren Fournier’s new line of vegan fur coats, made from only pure grain fed, vegan animals.)

( Bella Braxton returns to the center of the ring for the final time of the evening, ready to announce the main event. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Bella Braxton: The following bout is scheduled for one fall–

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Bella Braxton: And is our MAIN EVENT MATCH OF THE EVENING, FEATURING ACE VS ACE!!!!

….

( “DON’T STOP” by InnerPartySystem plays, and The Palace gives an enormous reaction to Noah Reigner who walks out to the stage, noticeably with his Cash in the Vault briefcase missing. Evelyn Ridley and Cameron Church closely follow behind him. )

Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Seattle, Washington weighing in tonight at 184 POUNDS!!! HE IS THE 2018 MR. CASH IN THE VAULT, AND 2018 EAW ROOKIE OF THE YEAR, NOOOAAAAAHHHH REIGNERRRR!!!!

Stew: What more about Noah Reigner can be said after tonight already Prez? His accomplices have both of his trophies in hand, and the only thing missing is his CITV briefcase after the bizarre assault that took place at the end of Road to Redemption just one week ago. This young man on any given night has proven that he can stand toe to toe with any member of the EAW roster and bring them past their limit.

Deadprez: He is my personal favorite member of the Voltage roster to watch, and not to jinx anything Stew ’cause nowadays Elitists like to prove you wrong when you say something nice about they ass, but there is no reason why this man doesn’t follow in the footsteps of his opponent and enter the EAW Hall of Fame someday, no reason at all!

( Noah is in the ring, visibly a little banged up, but still driven for this match. The crowd becomes even more antsy, no one is sitting in their seats, and everyone is awaiting the next entrant….. )

( “Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA [EAW Edit] plays prompting the audience to explode with massive cheers. Jamie O’Hara strolls out to the stage dressed to compete, looking chiseled from stone and gazes around at the audience to drink in the response. )

Stew: Listen to this place!

Bella Braxton: His opponent!!! Residing in Los Angeles, California by way of Melbourne, Australia, weighing in at 190 POUNDS!!!! “THE ASCENDED MASTER”, JAAAMMIEEEEEEEE OOOOOOOOOO’HARRAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

Stew: I concur with what you said Deadprez! Noah Reigner has all the makings of a Hall of Famer, but that’s because when most of us look at Noah Reigner we see a lot of this man, making his first EAW in-ring appearance since June 24th, 2018 back at Pain for Pride Festival! Jamie O’Hara has finally returned, and The Palace is on their feet! Here comes a man Prez who I contend is the greatest World Champion in the history of EAW!

Deadprez: You can go down the list of the all time greats, but I guarantee you Jamie O’Hara is among that list Stew! The scary part about this is somehow that young man looks different, you can see it in his eyes, he looks more confident than ever before!

( O’Hara and Reigner share the ring creating an electric moment in the air. They both lock eyes while the music and lights continue, and O’Hara turns away from him and climbs up the turnbuckle to engage with the audience. )

Deadprez: Almost like two guys looking at their own reflection! Cut from the same cloth, both CITV winners, both legendary rookie years. Jamie O’Hara being the longest reigning New Breed Champion in the HISTORY of EAW, while Noah Reigner has carried one of the greatest rookie years that I personally have ever seen!

Stew: By all accounts this is a dream match, a perfect match up, an extraordinary and fitting end for these people here in The Palace!

( DING! DING! DING! )

Stew: O’Hara and Reigner sizing each other up, gears working in their heads, as they both circle the ring… you can feel the electricity in this packed Palace venue!

The Palace: THIS IS AWESOME! :clap: :clap: :clap: THIS IS AWESOME! :clap: :clap: :clap: THIS IS AWESOME! :clap: :clap: :clap: THIS IS AWESOME! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Deadprez: Damn the match ain’t even start yet and these folks are already lit Stew! What a way to end off such a pivotal year and bring EAW into a new beginning!

Stew: Reigner lunges for the leg looking for perhaps a dragon screw, but O’Hara fights him off and even delivers a couple of elbows to do it. He spinners down the back of a doubled over Reigner and applies a rear waist lock, Reigner rushes to the ropes, O’Hara with an O’Connor roll to take Noah over! Noah uses the ropes to hold his ground and rushes back at Jamie for a JUMPING SUPERKICK! Nobody home, Jamie ducks it and responds with a spin kick to the midsection! Noah catches the boot, spins him around into a ROLLING FOREARM! O’HARA WITH A FOREARM OF HIS OWN! NOAH WITH ANOTHER! JAMIE! NOAH! BACK! AND FORTH! THE CROWD REACTING WITH EACH STRIKE! NOW O’HARA WITH A EUROPEAN UPPERCUT! That temporarily stuns Reigner and Jamie O’Hara sprints across the ring and comes right back at Noah, but Noah ducks down for the back body drop! Jamie evasively rolls down Noah’s back and rebounds off of the other ropes — AND NOAH REIGNER CATCHES JAMIE WITH A KNEE LIFT STRAIGHT TO THE CHEST!

Deadprez: Caught him! Reigner follows up with an Irish whip to the ropes on the other side, and REIGNER FOLLOWS UP WITH LIGHTING SPEED AND DELIVERS A DOUBLE KNEE STRIKE TO THE CHEST BEFORE JAMIE CAN EVEN REBOUND OFF THOSE ROPES! NOBODY HOME! JAMIE SPINS OUT OF THE WAY AND REIGNER LANDS ON THE OUTSIDE!!!

Stew: REIGNER SOMEHOW STICKS THE LANDING, BUT GOD IN HEAVEN JAMIE O’HARA IS ALREADY HALFWAY BACK ACROSS THE RING FROM RUNNING THE ROPES!!!! TOPE CON HILO!!!!!

( Evelyn Ridley yells for Noah to move out of the way, he does. )

( Jamie, instead of delivering a Hilo, back flips from the ropes and lands back into the middle of the ring, down on one knee. He motions the “come hither” gesture to Noah, and the audience claps in amazement. )

Stew: Complete mastery of the ring inside and out! Jamie O’Hara appears to have no rust whatsoever, and Noah Reigner is learning quickly just what exactly he’s gotten himself into! Reigner climbs up to the apron, slowly steps into the ring, gears turning in his head while this amazed audience can only gawk at the level of competitors they are witnessing…. and they apply a traditional collar & elbow tie up! Back from square one, but the mental edge in the beginning likely goes to O’Hara.

Deadprez: If there is any rust on Jamie O’Hara whatsoever, then I shudder to think what this man is capable of once he hits a stride. You got to admire Noah though, he isn’t backing down from this fight, and he’s got a side headlock clamped on O’Hara forcing Jamie to push his own body and Noah’s body into the ropes. O’Hara uses the momentum of the ropes behind him to push him and his opponent outta there, Noah goes charging across the ropes, rebounds off of them and Jamie drops to the mat prompting Noah to jump over him, rebound off the other side! Even more momentum than before! AND JAMIE POPS UP FROM THE FLOOR AND BLASTS HIM ACROSS THE FACE WITH A DROPKICK!!! NOAH SWIPES THE DROPKICK AWAY AT THE LAST SECOND, REBOUNDS OFF THE PERPENDICULAR ROPES, JAMIE RECOVERS! OHHHHHHHHH!!!! THE KILL SHOT!!!!!!!!! SICK KICK FROM NOAH REIGNER TO END THIS THING!!!!

Stew: JAMIE SPINS OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE CONTACT!! COUNTERS WITH THE STANDING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE CHEST OF NOAH!! HE SITS UP HOLDING HIS SOLAR PLEXUS, O’HARA REBOUNDS OFF OF THE NEAREST ROPES! SLIDING FOREARM SMASH TO THE FACE!!! NOT SO FAST, NOAH REIGNER COUNTERS IT WITH A LEG-SCISSORS TAKEOVER FROM THE GROUND, CONVERTED INTO A BRIDGING FUJIWARA ARMBAR!!!

Deadprez: WHAT A HELL OF A REVERSAL! O’HARA FINDING HIMSELF IN THE HOT SEAT BOY :whew:

Stew: Yeah welcome back Jamie O’Hara! Here’s a socket-splitting armbar for your troubles! O’Hara is doing his best to gain some sort of leverage, bringing himself up to his knees while Reigner rears back with the bridging Fujiwara armbar, and now O’Hara is doing his best to work himself under the arched back of Reigner, fighting as much as he can even at the risk of his right arm! AND HE’S MANAGED TO MUSCLE UP ENOUGH LEVERAGE TO STACK NOAH REIGNER IN A SEATED REVERSE CRUCIFIX BACKLIDE PIN!!!

Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO-

Stew: Reigner frantically jumps off of his shoulders and onto a seated base of his own! Now Reigner muscles O’Hara up to his feet while returning to his own feet as well, perhaps looking for a standing crucifix pin! But O’Hara refuses to allow himself to be taken over! He’s putting up a fight, and now O’Hara delivers an elbow to the side of the head! Turns around! DOUBLE-WRIST LOCK FROM BEHIND!!!! HE’S GOT REIGNER IN THE STRAIGHT JACKET POSITION!!!! INTO THE RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE!!!! STARDUST BREAKER!!!!!!!! NO, REIGNER GLIDES TO THE MAT WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE UNDERNEATH THE KNEE AND TAKES O’HARA ONTO HIS SHOULDERS WITH THE ROLL UP! O’HARA ROLLS THROUGH THE ROLL UP! CORKSCREW LOW ROUNDHOUSE INTO THE TEMPLE OF A KNEELING JAMIE O’HARA! THIS PLACE EXPLODES AFTER THAT ONE, AND REIGNER DRAGS A LIMP O’HARA UP FROM THE MAT, AND DELIVERS A DEADLIFT LUNGBLOWER!!!!! HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!!!!

Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Deadprez: KICK OUT! JEEZ!

( Jamie O’Hara rolls near the apron and Noah Reigner loosens up the kinetic tape on his shoulder, loosens up his neck and catches his breath. )

Deadprez: What insight can you give bruh! This is why Noah Reigner is considered as highly as he is, and he ain’t even closed to finished neither! O’Hara is on the apron recovering, the veteran wisely creating seperation, but Reigner’s going right after the boy and he climbs up to the middle rope, LOOKING TO DELIVER A MIDDLE-ROPE STEP OFF TORNADO DDT TO THE OUTSIDE!!!!

Stew: O’HARA USES ONE ARM TO HOLD HIS GROUND USING THE ROPES, AND HE DROPS REIGNER DOWN BELOW TO RINGSIDE! Reigner sticks the landing, rushes at Jamie, but JAMIE FIRES BACK WITH A PENALTY KICK RIGHT ON THE APRON!!!! THAT TURNS NOAH REIGNER INSIDE OUT! MOMENTUM TAKES HIM RIGHT BACK UP TO HIS FEET IN A HOT SECOND, AND JAMIE FIRES BACK WITH A JOHN WOO DROPKICK OFF THE APRON! DROPKICK RIGHT TO THE CHEST, TAKING BOTH OF THEM DOWN!

Deadprez: These people in the front row letting their voices be heard while both Reigner and O’Hara struggle to make it back up to their feet. It looks like they’re recovering at the same pace, and now O’Hara’s got Reigner by the wrist and sends him right across ringside with a HARD IRISH WHIP! But Reigner reverses the whip, sending O’Hara across ringside instead! But before Jamie can smash into the barricade he manages to hop right over it, landing damn near in the lap of two smoking hot blondes behind him! Reigner bullrushes right at him, and JAMIE FIRES BACK WITH A WICKED LOUD FOREARM STRIKE!!!! Noah holding the bridge of his nose, them eyes got to be watering after that one, and now JAMIE CLIMBS UP TOP TO DELIVER A FLYING FOREARM OFF THE BARRICADE!!!!

Stew: NOT SO FAST!!! FLUSH SUPERKICK TO THE LEGS OF O’HARA SENDS JAMIE DROPPING RIBS-FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! WHAT A COUNTER FROM NOAH REIGNER! HE FOLLOWS UP WITH A KNEE LIFT TO THE BODY! ANOTHER TO THE SHOULDER! AND DELIVERS ST-NOAH!!! DRAPING STO OFF OF THE BARRICADE, PLANTING JAMIE O’HARA FACE FIRST INTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!

Referee: SIX! SEVEN!

Stew: Incredible timing and precision from Noah Reigner, a young man truly skilled far beyond his years! Reigner rolls in and out of the ring, ignoring the requests of the official to take this bout back in the squared circle, and he’s got much more planned for Jamie O’Hara! Reigner pulls O’Hara up from the floor here and delivers a ferocious knee lift to the body! O’Hara stumbles back into the barricade for support, and Reigner follows up with an evil glare in his eyes with several more knee strikes into the chiseled abs of Jamie O’Hara! O’Hara drops down to a seated base holding his ribs, and Reigner pulls him back up by his head, reels him in, and SENDS HIM ACROSS RINGSIDE WITH THE OVERHEAD RELEASE BELLY TO BELLY!!!! JAMIE SMACKS HARD INTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH VERY, VERY LITTLE GIVE, AND HE ROLLS AROUND HOLDING HIS TORSO GROANING IN PAIN!

Deadprez: Noah Reigner rolls back in the ring, watching like a hawk as O’Hara is forced to fight himself back up to a knee, and is attempting to re-enter the ring from a different side of the ring. The referee’s count keeps going, now at 8, but O’Hara slides halfway into the ring before Noah immediately goes to work with a flurry of stomps at any open part of the upper body he can find! O’Hara taking punishment from a VERY, VERY game Noah Reigner here as Reigner takes him up to a vertical base and rocks his jaw with a clean uppercut! Reigner takes O’Hara out of the corner, they cross the ring bordering the ropes to another corner, and Reigner rocks him with a headbutt which sends Jamie backpedaling into that new corner, where Reigner continues his work with a set of precise jabs! Measured, precise southpaw jabs right to the face, and a right blow to the ribs! Reigner takes O’Hara a few inches out of the corner by the nape of his neck and is looking for a big time haymaker, but O’Hara ducks the shot! They trade places! ROLLING BACKFIST FROM O’HARA!!! THAT STUNS REIGNER! REIGNER LEANS OVER ON THE CORNER, AND O’HARA FIRES BACK WITH MACHINE GUN LIKE BACKHAND CHOPS OVER AND OVER INTO THE SENSITIVE CHEST OF NOAH REIGNER!!! I CAN’T EVEN COUNT HOW MANY CHOPS THIS MAN JUST DELIVERED BUT IT WAS A LOT! NOW O’HARA SLINGS REIGNER OVER HIS SHOULDER, AND QUICKLY SEATS REIGNER UP ON THE TOP ROPE — BANG!!!

Stew: DROPKICK!!!!!!! BOTH BOOTS SMACKING AGAINST THE JAW OF THE ASSAULT RIFLE, AND REIGNER TUMBLES FROM THE TOP TURNBUCKLE ALL THE WAY DOWN TO RINGSIDE!!!

( Cameron Church and Evelyn Ridley come to Noah Reigner’s aid after the gruesome fall. Jamie O’Hara is shaking with his adrenaline levels slowly starting to rise… and once Reigner musters up the will to get up to both feet. )

Stew: CHURCH AND RIDLEY MOVE OUT OF THE WAY!!! LOW-PE SUICIDA!!!!! SUICIDE DIVE BENEATH THE MIDDLE ROPE!!! REIGNER GOES CRASHING INTO THE BARRICADE, AND O’HARA IS ALREADY BACK IN THE RING, RUNNING BOTH SIDES AND BARRELLING BACK OVER TO THE RECOVERING REIGNER! TOPE CON HILOOOOO!!! JAMIE O’HARA TURNS NOAH REIGNER INSIDE OUT! AND HE ROCKETS UP BACK TO HIS FEET, PUMPING UP THE SOLD OUT PALACE AFTER THAT ELECTRIC DISPLAY! I’m getting goosebumps just watching this, Jamie O’Hara is back and in completely amazing form, and now he sends Noah Reigner back into the ring before returning in himself and stalking Reigner at the corner! Cold, calculating gaze from those blue eyes, as Reigner fights his way back up…. JUST TO BE BLASTED WITH A RUNNING SHOTGUN DROPKICK!!!! O’HARA EXPLODED OUT OF THE CORNER LIKE HE WERE JUST SHOT OUT OF A CANNON, AND REIGNER BOUNCED RIGHT OFF OF THE TURNBUCKLE AND COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR! O’HARA IS ALREADY SCALING THAT SAME TURNBUCKLE THAT REIGNER JUST CRASHED INTO, AND NOW O’HARA IS UP TOP WITH ADRENALINE RUSHING THROUGH HIM, LOOKING DOWN BELOW AT A RECOVERING NOAH REIGNER…. O’HARA WANTS TO DELIVER THE GENKI CANNON!!! DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE BACK OF REIGNERS’ HEAD!!!

Deadprez: WHAT IN THE WORLD?! REIGNER IS ALREADY BACK UP, BACKS INTO THE CORNER, AND DELIVERS A PELE KICK OVER TO THE TEMPLE OF O’HARA! I have never seen Reigner deliver a counter quite like that! Jamie O’Hara just had his bell rung while he’s still perched up on the top rope, and Reigner takes literally a few seconds to recover before SCALING UP THE TURNBUCKLE……… WHAT?!?!?!

Stew: SHOT DOWN!!!!!! JUMPING DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT, FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!!!! LOOK AT THE WAY JAMIE’S NECK BENT!!! NOAH REIGNER DESPERATELY SHOOTS THE HALF, AND HOOKS THE LEG KNOWING THAT THIS THING IS FINISHED!

Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THR-

( Noah Reigner sits up with his mouth wide open, and he drops to his side shaking his head in disbelief. )

Deadprez: JESUS FLIPPING CHRIST THIS MATCH!!! GOD DAMN I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT WASN’T IT! WHAT DOES NOAH REIGNER HAVE TO DO?!

Stew: It’s the same kind of resilience that carried this man through 11 months, holding the World Heavyweight Championship through hell or high water, and it’s the same resilience on display with a new aura around him! This is not the same old Jamie O’Hara, it’s an ascended version of a man who was already considered an all time great — BUT NOAH REIGNER IS GOING TO TRY TO PUT THAT AWAY RIGHT NOW! HE PULLS JAMIE OFF THE GROUND BY HIS TIGHTS, AND HOISTS HIM UP FOR THE OMEGA DRIVER!!!! LOCK, STOCK, SMOKING BARRELL!!!!!

Deadprez: JAMIE LANDS ON HIS FEET BEHIND REIGNER BEFORE HE CAN DELIVER THAT SITOUT OVER THE SHOULDER PILEDRIVER, AND THERE’S THE STRAIGHTJACKET FROM O’HARA FROM BEHIND!!! BUT REIGNER COUNTERS LOOKING FOR A VICTORY ROLL!!! WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT, O’HARA JUMPS OVER THE VICTORY ROLL, ALLOWING REIGNER TO ROLL FORWARD — BANG!!!!!!!! IN EXCELSIS!!!!!!! BICYCLE KNEE TO THE BACK OF THE SKULL!!!!!

Stew: REIGNER CAUGHT THE LEG!!!! REIGNER STOPPED THE LOW BICYCLE KNEE IN ITS TRACKS AND CAUGHT HIM BY THE LEG!!! HE DELIVERS THE HARD GOODBYE!!!! SWINGING LEG HOOK FIREMANS CARRY SLAM!!!!

Deadprez: ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! JAMIE BACKFLIPS OUT OF THAT AND LANDS BEHIND REIGNER!!!! STRAIGHT JACKET HOLD!!!! GOT HIM!!!!! STARDUST BREAKER!!!!! RIPCORD KNEE STRAIGHT ACROSS THE MOUTH!!! EVOLVED KINGSLAYER DAMN NEAR TOOK NOAH REIGNERS HEAD OFF, AND JAMIE O’HARA SLIDES RIGHT ON TOP OF HIM AND GETS THE COVER!

Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA [EAW Edit] comes back on, and Jamie O’Hara sits up and raises his fist to the audience, winded but relieved. )

Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… JAAAMMIEEEEEEE O’HARAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

Stew: I don’t think you could have asked for a better match to close this year than the Ace of today against the Ace of tomorrow!

Deadprez: It is an honor to be able to witness this match first hand and in person, we are looking at the past present and future of EAW in the ring right now Stew!

( Jamie O’Hara celebrates in front of the audience who are chanting “WELCOME BACK!” repeatedly. O’Hara descends from the turnbuckle, and he approaches Noah Reigner who is being helped up to his feet by Evelyn Ridley and Cameron Church. O’Hara offers his hand, and Reigner takes it. )

( O’Hara and Reigner shake hands and share a hug while the music continues to blare in the background and the audience chants “EAW!” )

Stew: After a year full of turmoil, a year of shocking twists and turns, a year of new generations and new names being established, we end this year with a clear and cut look at the state of Elite Answers Wrestling heading into 2019!

( O’Hara and Reigner celebrate side by side, raising each others hands while the audience cheers them on. )

Stew: Our company has had to face many battles this year, including an overhaul of its very identity, and we leave 2018 – in my opinion – WORLDS better than the way we entered it! Now we look onwards and forward to the next generation, on to the next saga, with another year of surprises, twists, epic matches, captivating storylines and much more ONLY in EAW! For Deadprez, I’m Stew-O, signing off from Alexandra Palace, we will see you in the new year!
