(The camera fades into the sight of New York. An instrumental version of “Crown” by Camila Cabello and Grey is playing in the background. It goes to the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty to Central Park to Time Square before show attractions of Brooklyn beginning with Coney Island.

It then goes to Tyler Wolfe and her performances in the 24/7 Battle Royal at Pain for Pride and her run in the Empress of Elite Tournament. The hunger in her eyes is seen.)

(SCREEN BAR: Brooklyn, NY!)
SG1: Welcome EAW Universe to the second annual Manifest Destiny! We are here in the home that Cloudy built as we determine not only who our next Unified Women’s Champion will be, but who will become the 2018 Empress of Elite! I’m your “Friendly Neighborhood Vixen” SG1! And beside me is my partner Alicia Amby!
Alicia Amby: Thank you my good partner! We have a STACKED card for you all tonight as we start things off with a title match! Let’s get right to it!
DING DING DING!!
Cori Simmons: The Following is the tag team match scheduled for ONE FALL and it is for the EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP!
(‘It’s My Turn’ feat. Casey Lee Williams by Jeff Williams plays as Revy and Layla Lockhart makes way to the ring to a combination of cheers and boos)
Cori Simmons: Introducing first, the challengers, weighing in at a combined weight 230lbs, they are Revy and Layla Lockhart…. THE PRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE!!!
SG1: Layla and Revy earning this moment from the second chance initiative, however, Layla and Revy have never really tag with each other, while the Jaded Hearts has been together since even REVOLT together.
Alicia: It will be interesting to see what these two bring to the table, but you know they both are tonight? The Underdogs, and that’s what people want to see. The underdog win, but do these two stand a chance against what is the most dominate tag team on Empire?
(‘True Love’ by CFO$ plays as Sienna Jade and Kassidy emerges from the ramp way with their tag team titles held up high. Both women from the ramp way look towards their in-ring opponents and simultaneous roll their eyes.)
Cori Simmons: And making their way to the ring, weighing in at a combined weight of 252lb, they are the Empire Tag Team Champions, Sienna Jade, and Kassidy Heart…. THE JAAAAAAAAAAAADED HEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARTS!!
Alicia: Well, it’s everybody’s favorite tag team, the Jaded Hearts, who have made their presences clearly known since the merger. I mean, Sienna Jade almost become the Unified Women’s champion, and now, Kassidy Heart can very well be the new Empress of Elite by the end of the night.
SG1: Well, first she has to get over the Pride as they are set to defend their tag team titles. I mean, they aren’t wrong. Revy and Layla should be the least of their worries tonight. The odds are stacked against the Pride, and you could just see the utter disgust in Sienna Jade’s face, believing this match to be nothing more than an inconvenience.
Alicia: Alright, both teams are in the ring now. Sienna insisting to Kassidy that she will start first. Remember, Sienna wants Kassidy to be in tip top condition before her big match tonight in the Empress of Elite Finals.
SG1: In the Pride, corner, however, it’s a little different. Revy pushing Layla into the corner, and it seems like Layla is trying to tell Revy to not do anything stupid? Revy pulling a flask out and begins to drink. Yeah, I suppose drinking before a big match is a bad idea.
Alicia: You know, beyond that 6 person tag, I don’t think Revy and Layla have really ever worked together, and even then, without Remi there, do they have what it takes to make it work?
SG1: Revy use to team up with other members of the roster, and she showed to be quite competent as a tag team wrestler? I mean, Daisy, that one girl, and …
Alicia: And how did those turn out?
SG1: Good Point. Looks like Revy and Sienna will start this out. Remember, the Jaded Hearts had almost zero to no interest in this match, after all, this team of the Pride was only established a mere week before Manifest Destiny.
Alicia: Sienna is utter repugnance as Revy approaches the center of the ring. But look at this, Revy offering a handshake? Well this is new! Don’t fall of it, Sienna! It’s a trap!
SG1: Sienna rolls her eyes and hesitates, but Revy insists. I mean, remember, Revy, herself doesn’t have much beef with these two as Layla and Remi. Sienna gives in, and throws a hand forward, AND REVY SPITS IN THE FACE OF SIENNA AND HER FACE NOW DRENCHED IN…. BEER, WHISKY?!
Alicia: Sienna falls over backwards as Kassidy runs into the ring. Both woman bawling their eyes out over what just happened as Revy is just laughing her ass off, and Layla, covering her face.
Layla: That was all her idea, I swear. I tried to stop her.
SG1: Sienna’s mascara running down across her face as she attempts to rub the alcohol across her eye. I mean, can this count for disqualification?! Sienna can’t wrestle in this state?!
Kassidy: RING THE GOD DAMN BELL!
Alicia: Ok. Kassidy Heart, carrying Sienna Jade in her arms to their corner, almost embracing her, trying to tell her everything is going to be alright as the medics run down the ramp with towers. This moment would be so beautiful if Revy wasn’t there laughing her ass off rolling around in the ring.
SG1: Kassidy Heart turns her attention back to Revy now, I guess Kassidy would be starting after all.
(DING DING DING!)
Alicia: AND KASSIDY EXPLODES FROM HER CORNER! A SPEAR TO THE MIDSECTION OF REVY INTO A LEG TAKEDOWN, AND KASSIDY IS JUST PUMMELING REVY OVER AND OVER. Revy grabbing on to the bottom rope, but Kassidy continues to mount and throws left and right. The Referee, pulling Kassidy off as Revy tries to pull herself back up.
SG1: Layla Lockhart from the corner shaking her head now as she looks down on Revy, but Revy tags Layla in. I guess Revy has had enough as she holds on to her Jaw, and Layla moves in.
Alicia: Kassidy charges, but Layla with an Arm drag. Layla continues to apply pressure on the arm, but Kassidy gets back to her feet, and reverses it, twisting the arm of The Warrior Princess. Layla runs up on the ropes, and manages to flip out of the hold, and into another arm drag.
SG1: Kassidy springs back up, throwing a clothesline, but Layla ducks, Kassidy rebounds off the ropes, and Layla catches Kassidy with a monkey flip! Kassidy’s back, crashing down upon the mat. Layla kips back up, AND A SINGLE LEG DROP KICK TO THE JAW OF HEART! Shoulders down!
TW…KICKOUT BY KASSIDY!
Alicia: Sienna back up in the corner now, and she is furious. I mean, I don’t even think Kassidy is fighting for the tag team titles now, beyond just revenge for her best friend, Sienna now, but the tag titles are on the line, and Kassidy has to focus.
SG1: Layla picking Kassidy up now, but Heart with a stiff elbow shot to the face of Layla, and a few more, as she backs her up into the corner. And Kassidy with precise kicks and punches to Lockhart, before capitalizing with a heart punch to the chest!
Alicia: Kassidy has Layla by the head now, and a snapmare, a kick across the back. Sienna eager to step in the ring now. Kassidy picks up Layla once more, and irish whips her into the corner. And Kassidy with a clothesline! AND THE TAG IS MADE AS SIENNA IS NOW THE LEGAL PERSON!
SG1: Sienna and Kassidy with a double kick to the gut now. They both grab Layla by the head…. DOUBLE FACEBUSTER, DRIVING LAYLA’S FACE INTO THE MAT!
Alicia: Sienna grabs Layla and places her into the headlock now, and Sienna making her way to the Prides corner now….and sends Layla head first into the second turnbuckle like a battering ram!
Sienna: Tag in, you bitch!!
SG1: Sienna calling out Revy now, who tags in Layla. Revy tells Sienna to back off as she slowly makes her way in. Revy approaching the center of the ring with caution now, she puts her arm forward… AND EXTENDS HER HAND OUT AGAIN FOR A HANDSHAKE?
Alicia: Revy with a huge smile on her face, mocking Sienna, who grabs Revy by the arm, and pulls her in, Stiff knees to the midsection now, and Sienna slams Revy face first into the turnbuckle. Sienna with chops across the chest, but Revy grabs Sienna and reverses the position.
SG1: Revy with knife edge chops of their own. And now Revy with a slap across the face of Sienna. The Arena is quiet now, but Sienna with a slap across the face as well. Revy retaliates with another of her own, but Sienna with a back hand of her own.
Alicia: Revy throws the back hand, but Sienna ducks, grabs the arm, and maneuvers into a Fujiwara Armbar. Revy quickly puts Sienna into a head scissors and gets out of the arm bar, but Sienna kicks her off now. Revy charges for the running Lariat. But Sienna dodges it, grabs her from behind, and the neckbreaker connects!
SG1: Sienna dragging Revy over to her corner now. She lifts Revy over the shoulder now, tags in Kassidy, and Sienna effortlessly toss Revy off her shoulders, Kassidy catches Revy.. GERMAN SUPLEX!! ‘LIFE’S A DRAG AS THEY CALL IT!” Hooks the leg!
Alicia: Revy sits back up, but Kassidy off the ropes now… and a sliding strike connects as Kassidy drives her forearm square in the jaw of the brilliant brawler. Layla in the corner cheering on for Revy, but the Jaded Hearts are systematically tearing her apart.
SG1: Revy trying to crawl over to Layla now, but Kassidy has Revy by the leg now, and manages to drag her all the way back to the opposing side. Kassidy now turn around, tags in Sienna… and locks in the figure four as Revy cries in pain. Sienna is up the top ropes now.
Alicia: MODERN RENAISSANCE CONNECTS!! SIENNA DRIVING HER BOOT ONTO THE STERNUM OF REVY WITH THAT STOMP! Revy now, grasping for air, desperate to tag Layla in now. Revy crawling over as Sienna slowly crawls behind her.
SG1: Sienna now with that signature back rake, digging her nails into the flesh of Revy’s back. Jesis Christ, look at those claw marks across her back now. I think I see blood! Revy a few feet away from Layla now, but Sienna pressing her foot firmly down on the hands of Revy.
Alicia: Sienna, vicious as ever as she stomps on the hand of Revy. Sienna picks her up and places her head between her legs now. She lifts her up for that Gory Special Back Breaker….. THE CLAP BACK, BUT REVY MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET, THEIR ARMS INTERLOCKED AS REVY ATTEMPTS TO LIFT SIENNA ON HER BACK!
SG1: Revy hunching over now so Sienna can’t set her foot back down, Revy carrying Sienna on her back to the Pride’s corner now, and Layla tags Revy in. REVY STILL REFUSING TO DROP SIENNA NOW, LAYLA RUNS OFF THE ROPES AT FULL SPEED! Revy releases!! …AND THE SUPERHERO KICK!! THE JUMPING CORKSCREW ROUNDHOUSE KICKS CONNECT!
Alicia: Layla runs over to the Jaded Hearts corner now, and the forearm smash. Layla turns around and the savate kick connects to the jaw of Sienna. Kassidy trying to run back in the ring, but the ref is stopping her. Revy and Layla in the ring now, AND REVY AND LAYLA WITH THE DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO SIENNA!
SG1: Layla pushes Sienna back down, Revy places her arm down as a lift, Layla steps on it!! AND REVY FLIPS HER…. MOONSAULT ON TOP OF SIENNA NOW. SHOULDERS DOWN!!
KICKOUT BY THE CHAMP!
Alicia: Revy and Layla showing some uncharacteristic teamwork right now, Layla now tagging Revy in, who rushes in and nails the stiff kick to the back. Revy with the signature bullseye taunt as she points the finger gun to the head of Sienna now, and runs off the ropes…. AND THE SHOOTING PEACH HIP ATTACK CONNECTS!
SG1: Revy pulls Sienna up by the hair now, she goes for the Three Count, and the running knee strike to the skull connects and Revy quickly covers!
SIENNA KICKS OUT!
Alicia: How quickly the rolls have reversed now as Sienna is taking the beating, and Revy now picking Sienna up by the head now, and puts her in the head lock. AND THE COCONUT FLASH, AS REVY LIFTS THE KNEE AND SENDS SIENNA FALLING BACKWARDS INTO THE CORNER. And Revy stomping away over and over and over!
SG1: Revy trying to make a mudhole out of Sienna here. Kassidy in the ring now as she leaps up behind Revy… and THE NORVINA LIGHTS CONNECTS AS KASSIDY SPIKES REVY’S HEAD WITH THAT SICK HURRICANRANA. The official stepping in now, but Layla running up to Kassidy now.
Alicia: LAYLA AND KASSIDY ARE GOING AT IT, EXCHANGING BLOWS. LAYLA GETTING THE UPPERHAND AND SHE THROWS A BIG RIGHT, BUT KASSIDY DUCKS, AND CLOTHESLINE LAYLA OVER THE TOP ROPE!
SG1: Layla manages to land on her feet and grabs Kassidy by the foot, dragging her out of the ring, and the two continue to brawl on the outside now. Layla driving Kassidy kidney first into the apron now, as Kassidy delivers hammer shots across the back of Layla as she tries to fend her off.
Alicia: Sienna and Revy are both still trying to recuperate in the ring. The two legal women are attempting to crawl to their corner to make the tag, unaware of the chaos going on outside. Layla finally releases Kassidy, and Kassidy with a heart punch!
SG1: Layla drops to one knee, but Kassidy lifts her back up, and places her over the shoulders. Kassidy carrying Layla over to the barricade. Could it be? NO, SHE CAN’T! SHE SHOULDN’T, NOT TO SWEET LAYLA LOCKHART!
Alicia: KASSIDY AIMS FOR THE BARRICADE AS SHE GOES FOR THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!! BUT LAYLA WRAPING HER LEGS AROUND KASSIDY’S ARM. LAYLA HOLDING FOR DEAR LIFE, AND NOW, LAYLA WITH ELBOW STRIKES TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD OF KASSIDY!
SG1: Kassidy drops Layla now, Layla takes a few step backwards, and she charges….. Kassidy attempts to take action…. BOTTLE ROCKET!! BOTTLE ROCKET!! THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!
Alicia: Kassidy might had just been broken in half there as Layla and her just lay there. I mean, Kassidy has a huge match tonight for the Empress of Elite!
SG1: She’s fine. She’s fine. It would take a lot more than that, but still, an impressive feat from the 104 lbs Layla. But back in the ring, Revy and Sienna are both back to their feet from opposing corners. Both women breathing hard with malice in their eyes.
Alicia: Sienna is the first to step forward, but Revy follows shortly after. Both women exchanging words now, but Sienna with a huge slap across the face of Revy. Revy answers with one of her own, and they are just going at it again! Slap after slap, after slap, but Revy teethers backwards, she winds up, and slaps Sienna once more.
SG1: Sienna staggering now, and she throws one of her own, but Revy ducks and pulls her up into the Stun Gun, hanging her by the top rope. Sienna falls over backwards now, and Revy with a beautiful crescent heel kick! Revy covers Sienna now. THIS COULD BE IT!
TH…SIENNA KICKS OUT!!
Alicia: Revy slamming her fists onto the canvas, as she can’t believe it. Just what are these women made of? Revy making her way to the top rope now. We’ve seen her done this before. Houston, we have a problem as if this connect, we may be looking at new tag team champs.
SG1: Revy is perched up, she goes for the finger guns and takes aim at the championship, almost as if preparing for the execution…. REVY LEAPS… INTO A SOMERSAULT LEG DROP.. THE HOUSTON HANGOVER!!…..
Alicia: DOESN’T CONNECT AS SIENNA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY. Revy trying to regain composure, BUT SIENNA WITH THE WITCH HAMMER, SMASHING REVY IN THE FACE WITH THAT RIPCORD ROLLING ELBOW. Revy collapses onto the apron now.
SG1: Sienna sliding out of the ring now, and pulls Revy’s head outward, Sienna measures up… AND THE RUNNING KNEE LIFT CONNECTS! …. Oh it doesn’t stop there now, as Sienna pulls Revy further out now… she has her in a DDT position… no..no no..no!!
Alicia: THE HANGMAN DDT TO THE FLOOR!! REVY IS OUT!! REVY IS OUT!! Layla running over to aid Revy as she attacks Sienna. Layla with a savate kick now to daze Sienna now….. SHE GOES FOR THE SPEAR…. BUT KASSIDY TACKLES HER AND HOLDS HER DOWN.
SG1: SIENNA SNAPS OUT OF IT, AND THE JADED HEARTS ARE ASSAULTING LAYLA. Sienna picks Layla up now, she goes for the leg sweep, but Kassidy in tandem with the spinning heel kick! SUBCULTURE TO THE FLOOR!
Alicia: Revy still isn’t moving after that DDT, but Sienna calls Kassidy to toss Revy back in the ring. The Jaded Hearts manages to get her back in the ring now. Remember, Revy is the legal woman! Sienna going for the cover? NO! Sienna telling Kassidy to go up the top ropes!
SG1: This isn’t over for Revy. Not by a long shot! They want her to suffer for earlier, as both Jaded Hearts make their way to the top ropes! We’ve seen this before! IT’S THE RIDE OR DIE! Sienna signaling on the count of three….
…THREE……. But Layla grabbing a hold of Sienna’s foot and tripping her!! Sienna falls over backwards into the ring!
SG1: Kassidy isn’t sure what to do, but goes for it anyway…. THAT FLYING HEAD BUTT…… AIR HEART!!……BUT RECOIL!! REVY RISES BACK FROM THE DEAD AND HITS THE RECOIL! CATCHING KASSIDY HEAD FIRST IN MID AIR!! HOLY SHIT!!
Alicia: Revy, laying in the middle of the ring with her eyes bulged out. I don’t even think she believed that she pulled that off. Revy sits back up, as does Sienna. Revy still doesn’t look like she knows where she is. I mean, how many times has she been dropped on her head tonight?!
SG1: Sienna Jade back up to her feet first. Revy still struggling to get back up to a vertical base… Sienna taking her shot now, she mocks Revy with finger guns of her own. Revy is back up, but she probably should had stayed down…. SIENNA OFF THE ROPES, SPRING BOARDS….. DROP KICK!! THE RAW SIENNA!! BUT LAYLA PUSHING REVY OUT OF HARM’S WAY, SIENNA OVER SHOOTS!
Alicia: Revy turns her around!!! … RECOIL!! THE STUNNER CONNECTS TO SIENNA!! OH MY GOD!! OH MY GOD!! THIS COULD BE IT! FOLKS. Revy still unable to make cover, but no, she’s crawling over to the corner, shouting for Layla to get back over there.
SG1: Layla quickly picks herself up and makes her way back to the corner. Revy tags Layla in now, and Lockhart making her way up to the top rope!! NO. THIS CAN’T BE IT FOR JADED SUMMER! SAY IT AIN’T SO!! LAYLA IS PERCHED, AND SHE LEAPS…. SECOND STAR TO THE RIGHT… THE CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS CONNECTS!! IT CONNECTS!! THAT’S IT FOLKS, GAME OVER! THE PRIDE WINS.. COVER!!
KASSIDY HEART BREAKING THE PINFALL!!
SG1: How the hell did Kassidy get up after that stunner earlier? Is this love?!! Revy in the corner rolling her eyes. I see you, non-believer! Layla tossing Kassidy out of the ring now, and turns her focus back on Sienna, Layla goes to pick her up, … BUT SIENNA WITH A SMALL PACKAGE…. PIN!!
Alicia: Layla lunges at Sienna, but Sienna with the stiff knee to the midsection! Sienna goes for the RDG, the fisherman bridging suplex, but Layla manages to keep herself to the ground! Body blows to the gut, and goes for the Carousel of Progress…. Layla flips, but Sienna quickly grounds Layla AND GOES FOR THE TEMPTRESS!! THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK CROSSFACE, BUT LAYLA REFUSING TO LET HER ARM GET LOCKED IN… BUT IT’S TOO LATE… SIENNA JADE LOCKS IN THE TEMPTRESS!
SG1: But Revy with a kick to the head. Kassidy Heart coming in now, and Revy and Kassidy go at it. Kassidy gets the advantage.. THE P.C.S. KICK CONNECTS, SENDING REVY TUMBLING BACKWARDS AND OUT OF THE RING!
Alicia: Kassidy goes back to the corner now, and urges Sienna to make the tag… Sienna makes the leap, and tag is made. Kassidy goes in and measures….. Do it Kassidy… DO IT!! TAKE EM TO CHURCH…. THE CURB STOMP!!! … BUT LAYLA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!! Layla throws a big right hook, but Kassidy from behind… AND THE GERMAN CONNECTS!! BACK UP ONCE MORE, AND KASSIDY DROPS LAYLA ON HER HEAD ONCE MORE WITH ANOTHER GERMAN!
SG1: One more for the Kassploder Suplex!!…. BUT LAYLA MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET. SHE STAGGERS, BUT KASSIDY WITH THE IRISH WHIP!! BUT LAYLA USING THE MOMENTUM TO GO FOR THE HEAD SCISSORS, TILT A WHIRL BRIDGING ARMBAR!!! THE SPIDER DANCE!! LAYLA LOCKING IN THE SPIDER DANCE, PULLING KASSIDY’S ARM AT AN ANGLE THAT SHOULDN’T EVEN BE POSSIBLE!!
Alicia: LAYLA LOOKING TO TEAR KASSIDY’S ARM OFF IF SHE DOESN’T TAP HERE AND GIVE UP THE TAG TITLES, BUT KASSIDY REFUSING. LAYLA PULLS HARDER AND APPLIES THE PRESSURE NOW! WE MAY GET SOME NEW CHAMPS HERE, BUT KASSIDY STILL REFUSING TO QUIT! MY GOD! IF THIS KEEPS UP, SHE’LL HAVE TO GO INTO THE EMPRESS OF ELITE WITH ONE ARM!
SG1: Kassidy, still refusing to tap, knowing how much these tag titles means to Jaded Heart. Kassidy is actually dragging herself to the ropes and Layla continues to wrench the hold. Kassidy is a mere finger tip away from the ropes, but Kassidy still clutching her fist in pain. Kassidy stretches further… and manages to make way to the rope!
Alicia: AND LAYLA IS FORCED TO RELEASE IT, BUT THE DAMAGE MAY ALREADY BE DONE! Revy shouting for Layla to end this as they both raised their arm for the Pride, almost confident in victory now. Revy lifts Kassidy over the shoulders now…. The Pride calls this the Unconscious Flying Object. Layla taking a good aim as he prepares for the single leg drop kick. LAYLA SHOOTS FORWARD!… BUT SIENNA FROM THE SIDE PUSHES REVY AND KASSIDY…
SG1: AND THE SINGLE LEG DROP CONNECTS TO THE JAWS OF REVY!! LAYLA JUST KNOCKED OUT REVY BY MISTAKE AS SHE LOOKS DOWN OH HER FALLEN COMRADE! LAYLA TURNS AROUND, JADED HEARTS WITH A KICK TO THE GUT…. THE BEAUTY KILLER HITS AS THE SICK KNEE FROM SYDNEY CONNECTS!! KASSIDY WITH THE COVER!!
DING DING DING!!
(‘True Love’ by CFO$ plays as Kassidy rolls off Layla and Sienna leaps on to Kassidy to hug her)
Cori Simmons: The winner of the match and still the Empire Tag Team Champions….. Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart…. The JAAAAAAAAAAADED HEAAAAAAAAAAAAARTS!!
Alicia: That’s all she wrote, ladies and gentleman. #JadedSummer continues as Kassidy and Sienna retains their championship in what was unexpectedly a very competitive fight from the Pride. Sienna raising the tag titles in the air as Kassidy continues to grab her arm.
SG1: I hope Kassidy is already for tonight’s match, I mean, after that, I honestly don’t think so. The Pride, Revy and Layla took the fight to them, and for a few moments, I believed they could had done it, but Sienna and Kassidy proves once more why they are the superior team.
Alicia: Revy checking on Layla from the ring as the Jaded Heart celebrate on the ramp way. The look of disappointment in Revy’s eyes says it all. This isn’t over, atleast for now. But until then, we hope Kassidy would be up to snuff as she enters the biggest match of her career so far. The finals, to settle the new Empress of Elite is still happening tonight on Manifest Destiny!
(COMMERCIAL BREAK: Voltage Crossfire ad)
Cori Simmons: The following match is a six pack challenge and is for the Young Lioness Cup! The winner of which can cash in for an opportunity at the Specialist championship! Introducing first, the special guest referee…Miss Manami!
(She gestures to her right where Miss Manami stands in her referee attire. The legend smiles and waves as the crowd cheers in adoration.)
Cori Simmons: Now, introducing the competitors! First, from York, North Yorkshire England, weighing in at one hundred and thirty four pounds….The Rat Daddy, Toni Gunn!
The lights go down as ‘Hahaha’ by Death Grips begins to play. As the lyrics kick in, Toni Gunn explodes onto the stage with a bottle of Yorkshire lager in hand, followed by her own ho train called the Gunn Gals. She makes her way down the ramp feeling the transcendent lyrics of Hahaha, singing along with her favourite part which is of course “HAHAHA BITCH”. Climbing the ring apron, Toni takes a sip of lager and then spits it out into the air before entering the ring.
SG1: Toni has been on quite the run recently, holding victories over two of her opponents here tonight! She’s got to be many people’s pick to win this!
Alicia Amby: That’s true, but those were one on one contests, let’s see how she fares against five other competitors at the same time!
Cori Simmons: Introducing next, from Yomi-no-Kuni, weighing in at one hundred and thirty seven pounds, The Neon Oni, Sazae Hangaku!
On the stage a pair of spotlights light up on either side of the entrance ramp. A pair of steel poles rise from the stage as Runako Arisato and a fellow member of her dance troupe take to the polls, beginning to dance gracefully as a third light moves up the ramp. ‘I Am The Animal’ hits as the spotlight falls upon Sazae Hangaku, who licks her lips as she stares first at her dancers then at the audience before making her way down to the ring, long kimono billowing out behind her before sliding into the ring, Kanji Rocca cowering in her wake the whole way up and clearly praying for Sazae to not attack anyone she shouldn’t.
Alicia Amby: I’ll admit, Sazae gives me the creeps! She certainly lives up to the moniker “Cannibal of Shibuya”, have you seen the teeth marks on her associate?
SG1: For sure, but you gotta believe that gives her a psychological advantage over her opponents, sure, everyone says they’re willing to do anything to win, but with someone like Sazae, you believe it!
Cori Simmons: Now introducing the next competitor, from Bondi, Sydney, New South Wales, but now residing in Orlando Florida, weighing in at one hundred and thirty two pounds, “The Baddest”, Clarissa Evans!
The opening techno beat of ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ by Demi Lovato is heard as the lyrics begin to kick in and Clarissa makes her way out onto the stage slowly, turning around so her back was facing the ring and once the chorus kicks in she raises her arms up out, turning head to look at both the crowd and the ring, before a smirk appears on her face as she turns around, holding her arms out. Clarissa ignored all the jeers from the crowd and began pointing towards herself, yelling at the fans. You can also see Clarissa mouthing the lyrics of her theme song as she walks up the steel steps and walks along the ring apron, taunting the fans as she enters the ring and makes her way over to the corner, climbing the turnbuckle as she holds her arms out before again pointing towards herself. Clarissa slowly removes her shades from her hairs and hands them off to the Miss Manami, warning her not to lose them.
Alicia Amby: Clarissa may want to watch herself with Miss Manami, she may be dressed as a referee now, but one wrong word and Clarissa, or anyone else in the ring for that matter, will find out just what the legend is capable of.
SG1: For sure, “Australia’s Greatest Export” certainly has the opportunity tonight to prove she’s just that, but with Kassidy Heart and Tyler Wolfe also on the roster Clarissa is going to have to prove that she’s more than just a flash in the pan.
Cori Simmons: The next competitor hails from Baltimore Maryland, and weighs in at one hundred and twenty pounds…”The Lioness” Constance Blevins!
Constance bursts through the curtain following the Lioness roar (which leads into the chorus of “Roar”). She raises her arms parallel with her index fingers pointing upward to the heavens. Constance smiles, then blows a kiss upward as well. Then she slaps hands with fans coming down ramp towards the ring. Constance enters into the ring, all business.
SG1: This young woman is out to show the world that she is the future of Empire! I gotta admit, she’s been very impressive thus far, showing real heart in the ring.
Alicia Amby: Another favorite by many to take home the cup, “The Lioness” is setting out to prove that she’s the alpha predator or Empire!
Cori Simmons: Introducing nest, from Christchurch, New Zealand and weighing in at one hundred and fifty five pounds, “Miss No Fucks Given” Harlow Richert!
“All-Star” by Smash Mouth begins playing as Harlow walks down the ramp with a bit more purpose than her usual disinterested attitude.
Alicia Amby: It would seem “Miss No Fucks Given” has started to maybe give a little bit of a fuck, wouldn’t you say?
SG1: I would say that it’s time she found the motivation. Talent alone will only take you so far in life, you gotta apply yourself too!
Cori Simmons: And finally, introducing their opponent, from Roswell, New Mexico, weighing in at one hundred and twenty pounds…the Pixel Princess, Clara Lovelace!
“Furious 2” by Nikolas Gustavsson begins playing as Clara Lovelace excitedly runs onto the ramp followed by the documentary crew. The feed switches to their view as Clara makes her way down the ramp clapping fans outstretched hands.
SG1: The “Pixel Princess” has one hell of an opportunity here tonight, Alicia, let’s see if she can springboard winning the reality show into a shot at the Specialist title!
Alicia: Clara has everything she needs to succeed, the question in my mind is if she can put it all together tonight. Last week she was outsmarted by Toni Gunn and lost by countout. That won’t be a problem tonight, the six pack challenge is a no disqualification match, but the numbers game is very real in a match like this and Clara has done a lot to make sure all eyes are on her.
(The six competitors are eying each other as Miss Manami goes over the prematch rules with each of them. Cori exits the ring and Referee Manami calls for the bell DING!DING!DING!)
Alicia Amby: That’s the bell, and now it’s time to determine who will take home the Young Lioness Cup tonight. This has all the hallmarks of being an all time great match featuring the future of Empire!
(The six women are all tentative at first, no one seemingly wanting to make the first move, then all of a sudden Toni Gunn, annoyed at the others, runs toward Clara Lovelace.)
SG1: Toni looks like she’s had it with the waiting around of the other women, she’s gone straight after Clara! Double leg takedown, and she’s raining blows on the head and face of the Pixel Princess! Look out! It’s like Toni’s actions caused a jolt among the other four, and Sazae has now attacked Harlow!
Alicia: That’s not all, Clarissa and Constance have also paired off! This is bedlam in the ring, ladies and gentlemen!
(As Toni continues to batter Clara, Sazae is driving Harlow back into the corner with a flurry of strikes causing the New Zealand native to do everything she can to cover up. Meanwhile, Constance has the upper hand on Clarissa, having slipped behind her and maintaining a waist lock.)
SG1: The action is all over the place, I don’t know what to focus on! Okay, Harlow is weathering the storm that is Sazae, having backed into the defensive position of the corner to try to mitigate some of the Neon Oni’s offense…she catches a kick from Sazae…Harlow spins and hit s a dragon screw leg whip!
Alicia Amby: Constance has Clarissa in a belly to back waistlock…BIG German suplex floors Evans! The Lioness climbs on the back of Constance and applies a deep chinlock! Miss Manami is checking on the submission, but Clarissa refuses to quit, and manages to slide her lower body out of the ring, breaking the leverage of the hold!
(Constance releases the chinlock and follows Clarissa out of the ring, meanwhile, Toni pulls Clara to her feet.)
SG1: The action has spilled out of the ring as Clarissa and Constance are now brawling right in front of us…SNAP SUPLEX FROM CLARISSA! Constance is writhing in pain from being slammed on the thin protective mat surrounding the ring area!
Alicia Amby: Back in the ring, Toni is pulling Clara to her feet, but she’s met with forearms to the midsection! Harlow, looking for a reprieve from Sazae, moves over and hooks Toni’s tights with Clara…DOUBLE SUPLEX! Toni is driven into the mat from the combined effort of Clara and Harlow, and unlikely team if ever I’ve seen one!
SG1: These types of matches can cause some strange bedfellows, but those alliances fall apart just as quickly as they form! Harlow attacks Clara! Miss No Fucks Given is drives Clara headfirst into the mat with a DDT! Oh, LOOK OUT TONI! SAZAE DELIVERS A HARD KICK TO THE BACK OF TONI’S HEAD! Toni drops to the mat in a heap as the Cannibal descends on her with a flurry of blows!
(Outside the ring, Clarissa has went over and grabbed a folding chair from the time keepers position and is stalking back towards Constance, who is pulling herself to her feet using the announce table. Back in the ring, Harlow has positioned Clara in the far corner while Sazae is pummeling Toni.)
SG1: Toni Gun looks to be trying to stand up, despite the rain of blows from Sazae! Looks like there is blood coming from Toni’s nostrils, a result of the vicious striking of the Neon Oni!
Alicia Amby: Toni grabs Sazae’s hair! HEADBUTT smashes the face of the Cannibal!Hagaku is staggered back against the ropes! Toni gets a head full of steam, and runs to the far ropes…SHE CLOTHESLINES SAZARE OVER THE TOP ROPE! Both Toni and Sazae go tumbling to the outside area, leaving Harlow and Clara the only two still in the ring, which despite the no disqualification rules, is still where the actual pinfall needs to take place!
SG1: Clarissa is stalking Constance with an evil look in her and a steel chair in her hands, HERE IS COMES! THE LIONESS IS LEFT LIFELESS FROM A BRUTAL CHAIRSHOT FROM CLARISSA EVANS! SHE’S NOT DONE YET, THOUGH, SOMEONE STOP HER, SHE’S BEATING CONSTANCE WITH THE CHAIR OVER AND OVER!
Alicia Amby: That kind of brutality is what a match like this can bring out of a person, Clarissa finally throws down the chair, leaving Constance beaten, and…yes, bloody right beside out table!
(Blood is flowing not just from Constance, but also from the noses of both Sazae and Toni who are regaining their footing outside the ring. As the Neon Oni screams and rushes towards Toni, another scream, this one from inside the ring directs the camera away. Harlow has a handful of Clara’s hair and is dragging her toward the center of the ring. Clarissa, sensing an opportunity, slides under the ropes and approaches Harlow from behind.)
SG1: Clarissa is looking to attack Harlow from behind…NO, Harlow must have eyes in the back of her head! She blocks an attack from Clarissa and kicks her in the midsection…FLUTTERBYE DRIVERPILE! Harlow hits the butterfly piledriver and she’s trying to end this match! Clara quickly breaks up the pin, however, before Miss Manami can get into position to begin the count, but Clarissa seems to be out, I think Harlow could have won it there, ladies and gentlemen!
Alicia Amby: Harlow proving why, despite her off putting demeanor, she’s every bit as dangerous as anyone else in that ring! Clara looks to finally be taking charge of things, though and hits Harlow with a knee to the gut…CLARA DELIVERS CONTINUE?, the leg drop DDT, Harlow is now in the same position that she left Clarissa in!
SG1: That’s right, and Clara should be taking this chance to pin one of them, her inexperience could be costing her the Young Lioness Cup! Wait, what’s going on on the far side of the ring? It looks like Toni and Sazae are a bloody mess as they each have a handful of the other hair and are throwing fists as hard and fast as they can! These two are wrecking each other, but they need to do it in the ring!
(Toni drives a hard forearm into the temple of Sazae, causing her to stumble back a couple steps before Toni hits a running dropkick. In front of the announce table, Constance is showing signs of life as she starts pulling herself to her feet once again. In the ring, Clarissa and Harlow are still down with Clara standing over them.)
Alicia Amby: Toni has driven Sazae into the barricade and looks like she’s heading back into the ring now….She blindsides Clara, who was standing over Harlow, with a running spear! Toni’s face is covered in blood from her brawl with Sazae as she lets out a scream of rage, and picks Clara up!
SG1: Toni is setting Clara up…NO, CLARA SLIPS BEHIND HER! GAME OVER! (Skull Crushing Finale) Clara drives Toni’s bloody head into the mat, but this time she makes the pin! Miss Manami gets into position…
Clara can’t believe it, and truth be told I can barely believe it myself, but Toni Gunn kicked out of Game Over!
Alicia Amby: That’s how much the Young Lioness Cup means to these competitors, SG1, Toni is normally very resilient, but she must be reaching into deep reserves tonight, she wants that shot at the Specialist Title! LOOKOUT CLARA! SAZAE IS BACK IN THE RING! MASAMUNE! She delivers the spin kick to the side of Clara’s head, causing the Pixel Princess to drop to the mat. Sazae goes for the cover!
Constance breaks the pin! The Lioness has finally returned to the action, and stops Sazae from winning the Young Lioness Cup!
SG1: Uh-oh, Alicia, Sazae knows it too, look at the murderous intent in her eyes! Constance isn’t backing down, though! The two stand toe to toe! LOOK OUT! Clarissa tries to blindside them both, but is cut off by Sazae by a bicycle knee! Not to be outdone, Constance delivers a harsh roundhouse to the head of Harlow, who was struggling herself to stand! These two are clearing the ring!
(Sazae, seeing Constance as an equal competitor, nods and grins in glee as both women, each bloodied, circle each other. Clarissa and Harlow are both down on the mat, Toni is pulling herself up in the corner, and Clara is starting to stir. Just as Sazae and Constance move toward each other they’re cut off by a scream of rage.)
Toni Gunn: ARRRGRRRRRRRRRGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
SG1: TONI GUNN RUSHES SAZAE! The Cannibal of Shibuya is caught off guard by Toni as she is caught from behind….JAGERBOMB! Toni catches Sazae with the spinout powerbomb! THE NEON ONI IS STILL TRYING TO GET UP THOUGH! TONI IS HAVING NONE OF IT AS SHE CLIMBS THE TURNBUCKLE…THOT DESTROYER! The flying double stomp drives Sazae’s head into the mat, leaving her motionless!
Alicia Amby: Toni rolls Sazae out of the ring as Clara regains her feet. Constance Blevins similarly disposes of Harlow and Clarissa leaving only Clara, Toni, and Constance standing in the center of the ring. One of these three are going to be the winner of the Young Lion Cup and challenge either Remi Skyfire, Raven Roberts, or Tyler Wolfe for the Specialist Championship!
(Toni’s shoulders are heaving as she looks from Constance to Clara through blood matted hair, looking like she could spring at either any moment. The right side of Constance’s face is likewise matted with blood from Clarissa’s vicious chair attack. Clara, still slightly weak legged from the Masamune earlier, takes a deep breath, then rushes forward.)
SG1: Clara is going on the offensive! She sees the bloody faces of Toni and Constance, and sees an opportunity to clinch the match! She hits a running hurricanrana on Toni who rolls through…THE RAT DADDY COMETH! Toni turns Clara inside out with the rebound lariat!
Alicia Amby: Constance is on her in a heartbeat, though! She grabs Toni by the hair and delivers a headbutt, then another! Toni’s eyes are crossing! THIS COULD BE IT, CONSTANCE CAN FEEL IT! SHE KICKS TONI IN THE GUT, SHE’S GOING FOR THE LIONESS TOUCH…NO! TONI MANAGES TO PUSH CONSTANCE OFF HER! CONSTANCE REBOUNDS FROM THE ROPE…JAGERBOMB FROM TONI, CONSTANCE IS OUT!
SG1: CLARA IS BACKUP, NERF THIS! TONI IS TAKEN DOWN BY THE SPEAR! Toni manages to roll out of the ring as clara does for the pin on Constance! Miss Manami is in Position!
CONSTANCE KICKS OUT JUST AS THE REFEREE’S HAND WAS ABOUT TO HIT THE MAT! Clara grabs her head in frustration, how much more does she need to do to finish the Lioness?! Constance is pulled to her feet by Clara…SMALL PACKAGE FROM CONSTANCE!
Clara manages to power out at two!
Alicia Amby: Both competitors are making their way to their feet…MEME GENERATOR! CLARA MAY HAVE JUST SNUFFED THE LIFE FROM CONSTANCE WITH THAT X-FACTOR! SHe’s fired up now, look at her slapping the mat! Clara pulls Constance to her feet…TOUCH OF CLARITY! THE LIONESS IS NOT MOVING AFTER THAT HAMMERLOCK DDT! CLARA GOES OR THE PIN!!
Cori Simmons: The winner of this match, and recipient of the Young Lioness Cup…the Pixel Princess, Clara Lovelace!
(Furious 2 by Niklas Gustavsson begins playing as Clara stands and her arm is raised by Miss Manami. As the other women in the match are struggling to recover, Manami presents Clara with the Young Lioness Cup, while her camera crew enter the ring and start filming immediately.)
SG1: Well there you have it, Clara Lovelace is the holder of the Young Lioness Cup and now has an opportunity to challenge for the Specialist Championship!
Alicia Amby: What a match! Ladies and gentlemen, these women deserve all the respect in the world, they left it all in that ring! Give it up for them, and congratulations to Clara Lovelace, who will be paying particular attention to the Specialist Championship match later tonight now!
Cori Simmons: The folllowing contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX. begins to play as Andrea Valentine makes her way out, stopping on the stage with the Openweight Championship in hand.
Cori Simmons: Introducing first from Orlando, Florida!….weighing in at 110lbs…She is THE CURRENT AND DEFENDING EAW OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION…ANDREAAAA!!! VALENTINNNNEEEEE!!!
Andrea smiles at the positive reaction she’s receiving. Andrea holds the Openweight Championship up high before bringing it back down and heading toward the ring.
Alicia: Well, this is what Andrea Valentine wanted, as she stated on Empire! She wanted to be a part of this Manifest Destiny event in some capacity! That she gets to go against a good budding friend who’s every bit as ambitious as she, is just icing on cake!
SG1: That’s right! And Flannery being the GM that she is tries to make everything fair for everyone that’s within reason, and with everything that Andrea has contributed to this Brand over last several months, capping it off last season by bringing the Openweight Gold to the purple brand, she was definitely deserving of getting this match per request!
“Beast” by Nico Vega starts up as Daisy Thrash makes her way out bobbing her head to the drums of “Beast” as the crowd is on there feet as Daisy acknowledges the crowd by pointing her index finger throughout the arena and pumping her fist outward one time and begins to make her way toward the ring slapping hands with some fans before standing at the bottom of the ramp still bobbing her head to music and smiling. Her confidence is unmistakable as she and Andrea lock eyes for the first time, nodding her head with approval of this matchup, before she finally slides under the bottom rope to enter the ring.
Cori Simmons: And introducing her oppoent hailing from Seattle, Washington!…weighing in at 115lbs…she’s ‘THE RAZORBLADE SNOWFLAKE’….DAISYYYYYYY!!! THRASSSSHHHHHH!!!
Alicia: Daisy looks ready, Alicia! She’s got her game face on! Never one to back down from a match, she’s ready face this next challenge set in front of her path to the next level on Empire! If she can beat the current Openweight Champion, then there’s no reason to believe that at some point this season she couldn’t become one herself!
SG1: Daisy has been closely in the discussion in recent months when it comes to the Specialist Championship! She came close at Pain For Pride to securing it, but she won’t let that stop her! She’s still a shooting star, and definitely has the full package to be a future champion of this Brand!
The referee takes the Openweight Title from Andrea and hands it to a staff member at ringside. The referee checks to make sure both ladies are ready to go, and both acknowledge that they are. Andrea and Daisy move to the center of the ring and share a friendly handshake before moving back to their neutral corners. The referee signals for the bell.
(DING! DING! DING)
Alicia: Both competitors set to go here as they begin circling the ring. And Daisy, she seems to be uttering something at Andrea, and Andrea doesn’t look to be taking exception to it, but rather agreeing as she nods her head and claps her hands in agreement, certainly respecting and appreciating the competitive fighting spirit of Thrash that’s never absent in any match involving the Razorblade Snowflake. Both competitors move in on each other for the collar and elbow tie up with Andrea gaining the early advantage with a side headlock on Daisy Thrash! Andrea transitions into a hammerlock on Daisy! The hammerlock is reversed into a hammerlock by Daisy on Andrea now! Andrea with a swinging elbow which was easily ducked by Daisy who does an outstanding job in anticipation! Andrea tries to maneuver out of-But wait a minute! Daisy just let go of the waistlock! Andrea turns toward Daisy and looks on a bit surprised as Daisy still talking to Andrea here! A little mind games being played by Daisy here early! Perhaps a bit uncharacteristic for her but it may be to find some sort of edge here early in this matchup! Now both competitors moving in on each other again right into a collar and elbow tie up with Daisy getting the advantage with a headlock to Andrea this time! Daisy wrenches at head of Andrea, tightening her hold, but Andrea using her instincts sends Daisy off to the ropes, but Daisy ducks the high elbow by Andrea coming back, and Daisy’s momentum takes her to the opposite side now, Andrea looking for a clothes-DROPKICK BY DAISY TAKES ANDREA OFF HER FEET! But Daisy wasting absolutely no time here as she grabs Andrea back up! High knee to the sternum area of Andrea, and now Daisy throws a kick to the chest of Andrea but Andrea catches the leg to prevent impact! Andrea spins Daisy arou-OHHHH DAISY COMES BACK WITH A HARD SPIN KICK TO THE CHIN OF ANDREA WHO GOES RIGHT BACK DOWN! Andrea holding her face on that one and again Daisy wasting NO TIME as she moves right back in on Andrea but she decides to roll her over instead for a cover perhaps to make Andrea expend some energy here!
SG1: Daisy is quickly back to her feet unfazed by the fact that that pin attempt was unsuccessful knowing full well it would take more than that! Daisy urging Andrea to get back to her feet and Andrea slowly getting back up as Daisy quickly moves in ready to attack AND A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE NCOMING DAISY THRASH! Now Andrea moving in on the grounded Daisy Thrash! She picks Daisy back up and now HURRICANRANA TO DAISY BY ANDREA TAKING DAISY BACK TO THE CANVAS! Daisy sits up-OHHH – LOW DROP KICK TO THE SMALL OF THE BACK OF DAISY! And now Andrea grabs Daisy under her chin pulling her head back while shooting the left leg under and right over the neck area of Daisy! Andrea Valentine has the octopus stretch applied here on Daisy Thrash! Daisy’s near the ropes but still just far enough away to be right out of reach of them! The referee checking with Daisy but we all know what a fighter she is! She’ll never quit! The crowd urging her on here as she tries to use her leg strength to inch her way to the ropes! And she reaches the ropes! The referee tells Andrea Daisy has reached the ropes and Andrea immediately complies! Andrea grabs Daisy up and whips her to the corner and Daisy goes chest first into the top turnbuckle. Daisy favors her chest area after that impact! Andrea looking to follow up but Daisy anticipated and Andrea misses her target and it’s Daisy back on the offensive as she sends Andrea face first into that corner turnbuckle and NOW REPEATED KNIFE EDGED CHOPS FROM DAISY TO THE CHEST OF ANDREA VALENTINE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! HOLY CRAP! LIGHTING HER UP! THE INTENSITY RADIATING OFF DAISY NOW! HIGH KNEE TO ANDREA FOLLOWED UP WITH STOMPS TO CHEST TO THE SITTING DUCK THAT IS ANDREA VALENTINE! AND DAISY COMPLETELY JACKED UP NOW YELLING “COME ON!” AS THIS CROWD ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT! Daisy backs off as she acknowledges the referee’s order to! Andrea slowly pulling herself up using the ropes inching toward the middle facing the entrance ramp! And here comes Daisy – BUT WAIT! ANDREA BAITED HER! HIGH BACK DROP TO DAISY THRASH WHO WAS JUST SENT FLYING OVER THE TOP ROPE CRASHING TO THE FLOOR AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP! Daisy looking slightly out of it as she is slowly making her way up back to her feet – LOOK OUT! IT’S A BIRD! IT’S A PLANE! IT’S A SUICIDE DIVE BY ANDREA VALENTINE RIGHT ON TO DAISY THRASH WITH MOST OF HER MOMENTUM TAKING DAISY COMPLETELY OUT OF THE BALL GAME HERE! THE CROWD CHANTING ANDREA’S NAME NOW! THE REFEREE HAS BEGUN HIS COUNT NOW!
Alicia: Both ladies having a hard time making it to their feet here. Daisy crawling back toward the ring as Andrea rises to her feet stumbling before her unbalanced momentum takes her back down to her knees as she’s also obviously struggling here!
SG1: Andrea is back to her feet as Daisy trying to stand using the ring apron! Andrea grabs Daisy and rolls her into the ring and then she slides in right behind her breaking the referee’s ten count at the very last possible second! Andrea didn’t want the count out OR the easy victory! She wants to win this one in the ring! Andrea pulls Daisy by her leg slightly which brings her way from the ropes! She goes for the cover!
Alicia: Daisy kicking out! Showing the toughness that she’s noted for that’s made her a mainstay here on Empire! Not a strong enough pin attempt that time from Andrea! A little more authority with that pin attempt might’ve been the difference there! And now the grounded sleeper applied to Daisy taking her by surprise! Andrea being smart now! Not looking to exert more energy and playing into her opponent’s game but rather slowing the pace and looking to regain some of her own! The referee right there checking with Daisy and making sure she can still go! Daisy just exhaling now! Trying to find some energy of her own trying to find that next wind! The fans clapping as Daisy is yelling out and working her free arm to keep the blood and oxygen circulating! Daisy plants her legs and-look! A surprise reverse somersault roll to escape the hold! Daisy finds the energy to get back to her feet BUT LOOK AT ANDREA! LOOK AT THE RING AWARENESS! SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK THAT TAKES DAISY RIGHT BACK DOWN! AND ANOTHER COVER BY ANDREA!
SG1: And another kickout by Daisy! The crowd right back into it again with a “LET’S GO ANDREA!” chant! But MAN! The instincts to pull that off! (A replay is shown of the last spot) Andrea grabs Daisy up looking to pick her up to try something else here but Daisy wiggles free! Spin kick by Daisy is ducked by Andrea! Another kick by Daisy caught- AND THIS TIME SHE CONNECTS WITH THE ENZIGIRI THAT ROCKS ANDREA! FOLLOWED BY THE BIONIC ELBOW! TRYING TO TAKE ANDREA BACK DOWN! DAISY COMING AGAIN WITH-NO ANDREA SENDS DAISY’S MOMENTUM TO THE ROPES! ANDREA LOOKING FOR A SIDE KICK BUT DAISY CATCHES IT! ANKLE LOC-OHH ANDREA ESCAPES-NO! ANDREA’S HAND GRAZING THE MIDDLE ROPE! BUT DAISY PULLS HER AWAY BEFORE SHE COULD FULLY GET A HOLD OF IT! ANKLE LOCK APPLIED ON ANDREA!! ANDREA SCREAMING IN PAIN! THE REFEREE CHECKING WITH ANDREA!! ANDREA SHAKES HER HEAD SAYING “NO”! YOU CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE EXCRUCIATING PAIN AND DAMAGE THE ANKLE LOCK IS DOING THAT WILL AFFECT THE STANDING VERTICAL BASE OF ANDREA LATER! Now Andrea turns on to her back and tries to-And she does! Andrea breaks the devastating submission maneuver! She had enough leg strength to shove Daisy to the canvas! She rolls back over looking to get back to her feet. But Daisy’s not having any of it! She’s relentless! Back to her feet as she grabs Andrea’s ankle AGAIN!!! PULLING HER BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING!!! DAISY ROARING OUT LOUD AS SHE HAS RE-APPLIED THE ANKLE LOCK AND ANDREA YELLS IN PAIN!! THE REFEREE CHECKING WITH ANDREA!! ANDREA BITING HER OWN HAND! TRYING BLOCK OUT THE PAIN! NO USE! ON TO PLAN B!!! GOTTA DO IT THE HARD WAY!!! ANDREA RED IN THE FACE BUT DETERMINED!!! SHE WON’T QUIT!!! USING ALL HER ARM STRENGTH SHE PUSHES HERSELF UP! SHE BEGINS PULLING HERSELF CLOSER TO THE ROPES NOW! DAISY TRYING TO FIGHT IT BUT ANDREA IS TOO DETERMINED HERE! INCHING CLOSER! AND SHE’S GOT IT!!! ANDREA HAS A TIGHT HOLD ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! SHE’S HUGGING THE BOTTOM ROPE WITH BOTH ARMS FIRMLY WRAPPED AROUND IT! The referee acknowledges and without hesitation Daisy releases Andrea’s foot from her grasp! Daisy pacing now running her hand through her hair placing both hands on her hips shaking her head as she looks over at Andrea from a distance as the fans love the intensity now start up with a “LET’S GO DAISY” chant! Andrea using the ropes to stand now! She plants her left foot-uh oh! It’s like what was just alluded to a moment ago! The pain may have not been enough to make Andrea submit but it looks like clearly the damage has been done! Andrea winces each time she tries to plant that foot! She hasn’t left the ropes! Now she does but she’s noticeably favoring it as she moves in on Daisy who is moving in on her! Daisy pointing to her own head as she’s talking to Andrea and now points to that injured foot of Andrea indicating to her that she knows where to attack and Andrea with defiance simply tells Daisy to bring it! Daisy obliges going for a leg sweep-NO SHE FAKED ANDREA OUT! GOT YOUR NOSE TO ANDREA! THAT DISCUS ELBOW SMASH! ANARCHY IN THE WA! THESZ PRESS INTO MOUNTED PUNCHES! DAISY ALL OVER ANDREA NOW! Daisy picks Andrea up off the canvas with authority! Daisy whips Andrea who reverses the whip but Daisy reverses and sends Andrea instead-WHEELBARROW STUNNER BY ANDREA TO DAISY WHO FALLS TO HER KNEES! VALENTINES MASSACRE BY ANDREA TO DAISY THRASH! THAT HANDSTAND RIGHT INTO THE MODIFIED HEADSCISSORS DRIVER DRIVES DAISY RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS! ANDREA GRABS AT HER HER ANKLE IN OBVIOUS PAIN! SHE CRAWLS ON TOP OF DAISY WITH A SINGLE LEG COVER!
Alicia: Daisy kicksout! And all Andrea can do is cover her face on the canvas in disbelief but goes back to holding that ankle! Both ladies slowly sitting up now! Daisy looks to have a slight cut near the upper left eye brow area as both ladies side by side using the ropes to pull each other up! Both Andrea and Daisy stand at the same time holding the ropes and now slugging each other back and forth with their free arms generating “OO’S” from the crowd with each strike! Daisy lets go of the ropes and goes for THE KNEE THAT SMASHES FACISTS! NO! ANDREA BLOCKS IT! RUNNING SWINGING NECKBREAKER! NO! IT’S BLOCKED BY DAISY! DAISY INCOMING! TILT A WHIRL-WOW! DAISY GET’S FREE! ANDREA TURNS AROUND! SPIN KICK FROM DAISY DUCKED BY ANDREA! XOXO! ANDREA LAYS DAISY OUT WITH THAT INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER! BUT ANDREA IS TOO SPENT TO GO FOR THE IMMEDIATE COVER! Andrea Valentine slowly inches her way over to make the cover! She throws her arm over-WAIT A MINUTE! DAISY WAS PERHAPS PLAYING POSSUM BY LAYING THERE A FEW EXTRA SECONDS! SHE ROLLS ANDREA TO HER BACK RIGHT INTO THE ARMBAR SUBMISSION! IT’S LOCKED IN! ANDREA THOUGH WITH GOOD RING AWARENESS PLACES HER FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! And the referee taps on the shoulder of Daisy Thrash to indicate that Andrea has her foot on the rope! Daisy releases Andrea! Daisy stands back up on her feet, she goes to grab Andrea AND NOW A ROLL UP PIN ATTEMPT BY ANDREA!
SG1: Both ladies back to their feet quickly! AND NOW IT’S ANDREA THAT TURNS THE TABLES! ANDREA TAKES DAISY DOWN WITH THE CROSS ARMBREAKER! LOOK AT DAISY FIGHTING IT! WHAT’S THIS!?? DAISY JUST USED ALL THE STRENGTH SHE HAD IN HER LEGS TO REVERSE ROLL OUT OF THE PREDICAMENT SHE WAS IN! LOOK AT THIS! NO WAY! SHE LOCKS ANDREA’S LEGS TOGETHER! DAISY CHAIN! THIS COULD BE IT! ANDREA YELLING OUT! DAISY IS ABSOLUTELY RELENTLESS! ANDREA REFUSING TO QUIT! THE REFEREE CHECKING! ANDREA IGNORES THE REFEREE! FRANTICALLY SHE’S CRAWLING TOWARD THE ROPES WITH DAISY WHO STILL HAS THE DAISY CHAIN LOCKED IN! ANDREA REACHES THE ROPES! The referee taps Daisy again indicating the rope break! Daisy sits up as she slaps the mat! Frustration has to be setting in! She’s come at Andrea having dealt plenty of punishment but Andrea Valentine is showing just how far she’s come in her time on Empire! Andrea trying to bring herself up using the ropes! And Daisy is up as well! Both ladies lock eyes now! Andrea still limping a bit from that earlier ankle lock submission attack from Daisy! Both ladies slowly move in on each other! Both are uttering words back and forth and again there doesn’t seem to be any serious tension coming from it.
Daisy: Yeah! You’d knew I’d show up! This Razorblade Snowflake takes no nights off!
Andrea: And you know I don’t either. (Points out to crowd) Let’s finish this! Let’s give them something to remember!
Alicia: Look at this! Andrea and Daisy just shared a fist bump! And THEIR BACK IT! BOTH LADIES NOW TRADING HARD RIGHTS BACK AND FORTH! BOTH OF THESE LADIES CAN FEEL THE END ABOUT TO HAPPEN AS DAISY COMES WITH A KNIFE EDGE CHOP TO THE CHEST OF ANDREA! ANDREA IMMEDIATELY RESPONDS BACK WITH A FOREARM SHOT TO THE TEMPLE, DAISY LANDS A CHOP AGAIN, ANDREA LANDS A FOREARM AGAIN! DAISY LANDS A CHOP! ANDREA LANDS A FOREARM! CHOP! FOREARM! CHOP! FOREARM! CHOP! FOREARM! CHOP! FOREARM! CHOP! FOREARM! CHOP! FOREARM! THE CROWD STARTS APPLAUDING AS THESE TWO RELENTLESS LADIES CONTINUE TO TRADE SHOTS! CHOP! FOREARM! THE LAST FOREARM JUST STUNNED DAISY AS ANDREA’S CHEST COMPLETELY RED! ANDREA LANDS A FOREARM AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER!!! Andrea hits the ropes and Daisy tries to counter with a lariat but Andrea ducks and then leaps on the ropes and turns around and smashes Daisy with a flying knee to the face! She covers!
SG1: And Daisy kicks out again! Andrea is just shaking her head as she slowly makes her way back to her feet while Daisy is doing the same with the support of the ropes! We’re about to find out how much these two have left in their tanks! Andrea launches a kick to the midsection of Daisy and double knee facebreaker-IT’S BLOCKED! Daisy now picks Andrea Valentine up off the canvas WOW THE STRENGTH! DREAM ON!!! THE SCHOOLGIRL lifted into a deadlift sitout powerbomb! Daisy looking for the win here!
Alicia: Kickout by Andrea Valentine! Daisy though wasting no time as she grabs Andrea back up! But Andrea with a forearm to Daisy Thrash that staggers the Razorblade Snowflake! And Another! Another! Andrea whips Daisy to the ropes tilt a whirl transitioned she’s for the DDT but Daisy fights out! EAT THE RICH TO ANDREA!!! BUT SHE MISSES HER TARGET! ANDREA DUCKS JUST IN A NICK OF TIME!

Andrea though she’s going to the outside on the apron! She’s climbing up as Daisy is almost to her feet! Daisy is up! She’s staggering! She’s still feeling the affects of the Atomic Blonde from earlier! Andrea’s now up top waiting for her moment! She’s urging Daisy! Daisy turns around BUT ANDREA STUMBLES AND FALLS OFF! DAISY JUST THREW HER MOMENTUM INTO THE ROPES! HAD TO BE PART INSTINCTS PART OUT OF DESPERATION!! ANDREA TRYING TO RECOVER! BUT IT’S TOO LATE! DAISY HAS HER! NO PASARAN SIGN SEALED AND DELIVERED TO ANDREA VALENTINE!!! DAISY FALLS ON ANDREA MAKING THE COVER! THIS IS FOR THE WIN!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
“Beast” comes alive over the public announce speakers as Daisy Thrash rolls off of Andrea Valentine and lays on the canvas. The referee helps Daisy up to raise her hand, but as soon as he lets go she kneels back down on one knee as she looks back at the near unconscious Andrea Valentine.
Cori Simmons: The winner of this match by via PINFALL…..DAISYYYYYY!! THRASSSSHHHHHH!!!!
Alicia: What an absolute back and forth wrestle fest! What a match these two ladies just put on! If you believed there was nothing on the line in this matchup, you would’ve been absolutely fooled! There was pride on the line in this match, and neither lady wanted to give an inch!
SG1: This just goes to show how very competitive the ladies on this Empire brand are! There was nothing on the line in terms of titles, but when you put two very competitive, fiery individuals like these two in a match this will ALWAYS be the kind of excitement that’s going to be generated! These two ladies showed tonight that they are all but earmarked to be future World Champions at the top! Amazing!
“Beast” continues to play as Daisy is shown outside the ring now and on the ramp slapping hands with fans as she takes her leave with Andrea starting to sit up. Andrea is standing now in the center with her hands on her hips as “Beast” dies. The capacity crowd gives Andrea a round of applause and begin chanting “YOU WERE AWESOME!” as Andrea nods her head.

Alicia Amby: Here is a woman who some people believe should be in the finals of the Empress of Elite Tournament. Tyler Wolfe had an amazing run in the tournament. People say that she could have went all the way if it weren’t for Astraea Jordan!
SG1: When an opportunity closed for Tyler, another one opened with an opportunity to compete for the Specialists Championship. Tyler managed to defeat one-half of the Empire Tag Team Champions, Sienna Jade in order to face Remi Skyfire! Tyler now finds herself in the biggest match of her career so far. If she can walk out of Brooklyn with the Specialists Championship, it would be an amazing way to bounce back from that loss!

SG1: Raven Roberts has had the best out of our Specialists Champion, Remi Skyfire on a few occasions! There is nothing that she would love more than to get the best out of Remi tonight at Manifest Destiny!
Alicia Amby: Not only does Tyler have a victory over Remi, but Raven has a few victories over Remi. These are two women who have managed to defeat Remi Skyfire! Raven Roberts has the backing of the Fox Executives. Raven has the backing of a whole network who has invested in The Crowe’s Nest! Will it be enough to walk out of this match with the Specialists Championship? We’ll have to wait and see.
(The arena lights go dark as a spotlight shines on the entrance ramp and “Tiger Style” by Wu Tang begins playing. Remi Skyfire walks out on the stage followed by her head trainer, Cassie Belmont, holding the EAW Specialist Title above her head. She’s wearing orange and black tiger striped Muay Thai shorts along with feet and hand wraps in place of her normal boots and gloves. She’s also wearing a black satin robe with silver trim that comes down to her mid thigh, embroidered across the back is “The Killer” in silver. Making her way her way to the ring, she bares her mouth guard, which is black with an orange skull, to the camera. Once in the ring she removes the robe, revealing another skull on the front center of her waistband, and “Skyfire” embroidered across the back of it. She begins shadow boxing in her corner as she waits for the match to begin.)
Alicia Amby: Remi Skyfire is our Specialists Champion! Remi managed to win the title back in June at Pain for Pride in a Specialists Scramble match! There was not much people that believe she would be able to get the job done!
SG1: It might be the same thing here too. Just like you mentioned, Alicia. Both Tyler and Raven have victories over Remi. Remi has something to prove tonight and if she can defeat both Tyler and Raven tonight, then it may teach people to stop underestimating her and that she should be the Specialists Champion!
Cori Simmons: The following match is TRIPLE THREAT MATCH and it’s for the EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP! Introducing first, the challenger, from Sydney, Australia, she is “The Big Bad Wolfe”, TYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYLEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRR WOOOOOOOOOOOLFFFFFFFFFFFFEEEEEE!!!
(The crowd roars up in boos as Tyler Wolfe poses in confidence before getting back to her corner.)
Cori Simmons: Introducing the next challenger, from Las Vegas Nevada, she is “The Bird of Prey”, RAAAAAAAAAAAVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENNNNN ROOOOOOOOBEEEEEEEERRRRRTTTTTTSSSSSS!!!
(The crowd roars up in boos again as Raven Roberts poses and gestures for the Specialists Championship on her waist before going back to her corner.)
Cori Simmons: Introducing their opponent, from Somerset, Kentucky, she is the EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION, “The ScareCrowe”. REEEEEEEEEEMMMMMMIIIIIIII SKKKKKYYYYYFIIIIIIRRRRRREEEEE!!
(The crowd roars in cheers as Remi Skyfire holds the Specialists Championship above her head before handing it to our official, who shows it to both Tyler and Raven before handing it off to the timekeeper.)

Alicia Amby: This Triple Threat Match is underway! The Specialists Champion, Remi Skyfire takes on the Raven Roberts and Tyler Wolfe! The three women are in their respected corners as the three of them make it to the middle of the ring! All the women are side stepping, wondering who will make the first move out of them!

Tyler takes care of the opportunity with getting Remi’s shoulders down for a roll up, but Remi manages to roll out of the way before the count begins! Remi Skyfire has Tyler Wolfe by the arm! It looks like Remi is going for an armbar submission move right there! Tyler cannot allow that to happen! She picks up Remi with the arm that Remi has trapped in an armbar, lifts up Remi and slams her to the mat again!

Tyler backs away before she runs and connects with a running back elbow to Raven! Raven stays in the corner as Tyler takes a few steps away from the corner before running and connecting with a running back elbow to Raven for the second time in this match! Raven goes stumbling forward as Tyler connects with side kick, knocking Raven to her side as Tyler hooks the leg!
Jesse Carlton: OOOOOONE!!
SG1: Raven kicks out quickly as Tyler goes to strategize her next move! Meanwhile, Remi is still recovering outside the ring from the powerbomb by Tyler Wolfe! Inside the ring, Tyler picks up Raven and whips her to the ropes! Raven counters and ends up whipping Tyler to the ropes as she holds onto the ropes!

Tyler holds onto the injured left leg as she applies the Boston crab! Raven is crying out in pain as she tries to use her long arms to reach for the bottom rope!

IT IS NOT EVERYDAY THAT YOU SEE TYLER DROP DOWN LIKE THAT! REMI GRINS AS SHE SEES THAT AS A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO GET ON TOP OF TYLER AND CONNECT WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES TO TYLER’S FACE! TYLER IS TRYING TO GO FOR A LEFT HOOK OF HER OWN, BUT REMI IS ABLE TO PUT A STOP TO THAT QUICKLY AS SHE BEGINS TO CONNECT WITH A SERIES OF MOUNTED ELBOWS TO TYLER’S SKULL! AT THIS MOMENT, REMI SKYFIRE IS DOMINATING TYLER WOLFE! SHE IS NOT GOING TO LEAVE MANIFEST DESTINY WITHOUT THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP! AS SOON AS REMI SEEMS THAT TYLER WAS WEAKENED DOWN A BIT BY THE ELBOWS, REMI PICKS BY TYLER WITH A FISTFULL OF HER HAIR AND WHIPS HER TO THE CORNER! REMI QUICKLY CRASHES ONTO TYLER WITH A CLOTHESLINE!

RAVEN THROWS REMI OVER AND CONNECTS WITH AN O GOSHI JUDO THROW AS REMI LANDS IN A SEATED POSITION! THIS HAS PROVIDED TYLER WITH THE OPPORTUNITY SHE NEEDS TO RECOVER FOR THE MOMENT! RAVEN DOES NOT WASTE ANY TIME AS SHE SOON FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH SOME MUAY THAI KICKS TO REMI’S FACE! REMI DOES NOT FALL TO HER BACK AS RAVEN CONTINUES TO DELIVER THE KICKS TO REMI, BUT REMI IS NOT MOVING WHATSOEVER! WHAT IS RAVEN GOING TO DO IN ORDER TO KNOCK REMI TO THE MAT! RAVEN GOES BACK AND BOUNCES FROM THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A DANGEROUS KNEE THAT SENDS REMI TO HER BACK! RAVEN GETS ON OF REMI’S ARM AND GOES FOR A STANDING ARMBAR! REMI IS ON HER SIDE AS SHE IS TRYING TO SEARCH FOR A WAY OUT OF THIS MOVE! RAVEN GOES TO BEND REMI’S RIGHT ARM BACK AS REMI BEGINS TO FEEL THE PAIN OF THIS STANDING ARMBAR! REMI IS TRYING TO MANEUVER HERSELF, BUT RAVEN IS DOING A GREAT JOB WITH KEEPING THE ARMBAR LOCKED IN!
Raven Roberts: Just give up, Remi! I’ve had your number each time we faced each other! Don’t make things hard for yourself!
SG1: Remi, using all of her strength, manages to deliver a armdrag takedown on Raven! Raven is now the one finding herself in a difficult situation! Raven finds herself on her side as she is trying to push herself to the ropes! Remi is trying to hold Raven in that position as she plots her next move in this match!

TYLER IS ABLE TO HALT ANY MOVEMENT FROM HAPPENING AS REMI GOES TO WHIP TYLER AGAIN, BUT TYLER IS NOT MOVING ANYWHERE!

TYLER RUNS AND GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE, BUT REMI USES HER STRENGTH TO FLIP TYLER OVER AS SHE LANDS ON THE APRON!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Earth People” plays as Remi Skyfire rolls off Raven Roberts, who rolls out of the ring as Remi gets on her knees, processing everything that she has been through.)
Cori Simmons: THE WINNER AND STILL EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION, REEEEEEEEEMMMMMMMMMMMIIIIIII SKKKKKYYYYYYFFFFIIIIRRRRRRRREEEEEE!!
Alicia Amby: Remi Skyfire retains! She managed to defeat Tyler Wolfe and the woman that she has spent the past few months trying to defeat, Raven Roberts! Overall, Remi retained over two women who have gotten the best out of her in the past!
SG1: It was a well-earned victory on Remi’s part! Raven Roberts and Tyler Wolfe could have walked away with the victory. Both women had moments in which they could have stolen the victory!
Alicia Amby: In the end, it was Remi Skyfire who prevailed! Congratulations to Remi!
(The camera goes to Raven Roberts seated with her head resting against the barricade with a heartbroken and angry look on her face. Then it goes to Tyler Wolfe, with a bloody nose, is seen smacking her hands against the apron. She is frustrated that she let another victory slip past her. Then, it goes to Remi who is celebrating in the ring as the last glimpse is with her raising the Specialists Championship up in the air.)
(COMMERICAL BREAK: “Be Elite”: EAW’s anti-bullying program #PositiveEnvironment)
(SG1 and Alicia Amby is shown sitting at their desk)
SG1: The next match-up is something for the ages! We have EAW Unified Women’s Champion defending her title against the legendary Cameron Ella Ava! Let’s take a look at how these women stack up with one another.
(A glimpse of Cameron Ella Ava walking down a corridor is shown)
“CAMERON ELLA AVA IS YOUR NEW EAW VIXEN’S CHAMPION!”
(“King of the Clouds” by Panic! At the Disco plays)
Cameron Ella Ava’s Voice: When i first started this long road to pro wrestling, what consumed me was being the best I could be.
(Cam is seen running the ropes inside an empty ring. The scene transitions to Stephanie Matsuda sitting alone in gorilla, ficing her C9 gloves. What follows are various sound bytes from different media platforms concerning comparisons made of her to Cam)
“Stephanie’s the next Cameron.”
“Matsuda has the potential to be the next Cameron Ella Ava.”
“She just might be the next Cam in progress.”
(Matsuda is shown making various public appearances, including autograph signings and photo ops)
“Stephanie Matsuda is NOT the next Cameron Ella Ava. You’re talking about the greatest women’s wrestler to ever lace up a pair of boots. Hell, she might be the greatest REGARDLESS of gender! It’s hard to make that comparison!”
(Clips of Cam’s various face-offs throughout the years is shown)
“When Cam walked down that ramp, people knew they were in trouble!”
Stephanie Matsuda’s Voice: If I could send Cam a message, it would be that I don’t back down from anybody!
Interviewer’s Voice: Do you think that you’re the best wrestler in the world right now?
Stephanie’s voice: Yes.
(Clips of Stephanie and Cam’s last match is shown, with Cam coming out victorious)
“You have the present and the future. It’s the teacher versus the student. Stephanie has the opportunity to learn from and eventually surpass Cameron Ella Ava.”
(various clips of Cam’s most important matches are shown, with her coming out on top. She’s seen holding the EAW Hall of Fame Championship.)
Stephanie Matsuda: Cameron’s a great wrestler, but I’m the Iconic War Queen. Yamata no Orochi.
(Stephanie Matsuda winning the iconic Cup at Grand Rampage is shown)
“The one thing I love about Stephanie Matsuda is that she never gives up on a match, she never gives up on herself!”
(Matsuda’s title defenses are shown in comparison to Cam’s own successful title defenses)
Cam’s Voice: I’ve learned during my years in this industry is that you can never be able to live up to what their expectations are.
(Cam’s biggest spots in her career is shown.)
“You see a girl like Cam – :whew:”
(Stephanie’s matches at Pain for Pride and the first episode of Season 12 Empire is shown)
Stephanie Matsuda: I’m very serious about pro wrestling. Sometimes I can be too serious.
(Cloud’s War Queen persona is shown causing havoc amongst the Empire roster)
“Some people sit there and say Matsuda is trying to be the best wrestler active today. Ya’ll don’t see that she’s trying to become arguably the greatest ever!”
(More comparisons between Cam and Cloud are shown)
“If Stephanie “Cloud” Matsuda wants to be immortalized, she’s gonna have to slay a goddess. The question is – Will she be able to pull it off?”
(The final stare off between Cam and Cloud is shown)
“And if she doesn’t…is that it for the War Queen?”
(The interior of the Barclays center is shown as the arena goes dark. A familiar riff plays as “Sellouts” by Breathe Carolina plays. As the lead singer’s scream goes off, the lights come on, showing Cameron Ella Ava standing with her sisters Consuela Rose Ava, Camille Ava aka Ms. Extreme, and Candice Blair Ava. The Barclays Center is going nuts as Cam walks down the ramp to the original theme song that defined her career.)
SG1: Wow! I haven’t heard this song in ages! If Cam is coming out to Sellouts, she must be in Killa Cam mode!
Alicia Amby: I think Ava is sending a message to the EAW Universe that she’s ready for whatever Stephanie Matsuda is going to bring to the table!
SG1: She’s accompanied by her sisters as well. Do you think she’s doing this for protection?
Alicia: Cam knows that Monica Vaughan, Matsuda’s manager and love interest has played a role in putting the odds in the champ’s favor. With three people by her side, Cam is sure that her chances to win the women’s championship a second time is secured!
(Cam climbs into the ring as her sisters applaud her. She runs the ropes several times before tossing her red hat out into the crowd. As “Sellouts” fade, “Kill Jill (Remix)” by Archie and Sizzle begins to play. Once the beat drops several spotlights shine on stage as Stephanie Matsuda walks out with Monica Vaughan. The EAW Unified Women’s Championship is around her waist. The two scan the arena as Cloud receives a hero’s welcome. The couple nod at one another and start walking down the stage.)
SG1: Tonight Brooklyn is Cloud City! Stephanie Matsuda makes her presence known before her friends and family!
Alicia: Cloud is definitely beloved by everyone here though there are some Cam supporters in the audience. The ironic thing is statistically speaking, most wrestlers actually lose in their hometown!
SG1: Will Matsuda be another statistic? Even the odds are too close to call! She’s had four successful defenses so far and wants to make this her fifth! She lost to Cameron over a year ago, but like she said – she’s not the same woman as before!
(Cloud climbs into the ring and faces off with Cam)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Cori Simmons: the following match is scheduled for ONE FALL-
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Cori: And it is for the EAW UNIFIED WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP! First, the challenger! From Los Angeles, CA! Weighing in at 130 lbs! She is the Goddess of EAW! Cameron! Ella! AVAAAAAAAAAAA!
(Cam poses for the cheering crowd)
Cori: Her opponent! From twenty minutes away in Bushwick, BROOKLYN, NY! Weighing at 132 lbs! She is your reigning and defending EAW Unified Women’s Champion! The “Iconic War Queen”, “Yamata no Orochi” “The Blasian Baddie!” Stephanie! “Cloud!” MATSUUUUUDAAAAAAAA!
(Cloud raises her title before an ecstatic crowd and hands it to the ref)
Alicia: Cloud vs Cam – time to make history!
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: Referee Jesse Carlton has called for the bell and you can feel the big fight atmosphere that’s going on right now in the Barclays Center! There’s a huge amount of overwhelming support for hometown hero Stephanie Matsuda, but The Goddess has her fans as well!
Crowd: LET’S GO CLOUD-Y!
Crowd: KIL-LA CAM!
Crowd: LET’S GO CLOUD-Y!
Crowd: KIL-LA CAM!
Alicia Amby: Both women are in a stare-off, one waiting for the other to make her move! Their corner women, The Avas, and Monica Vaughan wait patiently for the first move!
SG1: You can tell from the look in their eyes, both women are assessing the situation, wondering who will act first! Matsuda is circling her opponent, looking for an opening. Cam responds by engaging in a collar-and-elbow tie-up! Stephanie attempts a transition, but Cam has her on the ropes! Matsuda tries to push her away, but the power of Ava is too overwhelming!
SG1: Cam breaks the hold and raises a fist! Huh? She’s patting Matuda on the shoulder and takes a few steps away, much to Stephanie’s ire!
Alicia: Cloud doesn’t look pleases! Cam has immediately started with the mind games, attempting to get into Stephanie’s head! Ava has her arms out, baiting Matsuda to come forward! The champion takes the bait! Both women are engaged in another tie-up! Cam has taken control! Matsuda transitions around Ava with a waistlock! Ava counters with a hip toss! Matsuda rolls to her feet- NARROWLY DODGES THE GODDESS TOUCH! Matsuda’s crawling backwards to the corner to gather her bearings! Cameron looks ready and focused! So far Ava has her number!
Crowd: CAM! CAM! CAM! CAM! CAM! CAM!
SG1: The Kill Cam supporters are in full swing! Matsuda stands back up, slowly inching her way out the corner. She has her guard up and is adopting a striking stance. Cam answers with a catch stance of her own. Cam attempts to close in, but Cloud stops her with a low kick. Ava tries to catch the leg, but Matsuda draws back to the leg- she ducks the surprises clothesline! Cam hits the ropes! Japanese armdrag counter by Matsuda!
Alicia: Now it’s Stephanie’s turn to gloat! Cam nods a few times, giving the War Queen some measure of respect. Both women are back in position- Cloud slides and trips Cam with a drop toehold! She has Ava’s knee and rolls forward! The Goddess is fighting out of the hold and escapes the rolling kneebar! Cloud rolls out of the way and and gets to her feet! Cam’s unloading a barrage of elbow smashes! She has Cloud against the ropes! Irish whip to the opposite end! Matsuda rebounds and slides under the double axe handle! She slides around Cam! German suplex! Cam flips out of it! Cloud turns around-
SG1: KNOCK! BITCHES! OUT! IT’S LIGHTS OUT FOR CLOUD AS SHE’S KNOCKED OUT OF THE RING BY THE ROARING FOREARM SMASH! Monica Vaughan is running to her girlfriend’s aid to check up on her! Consuela, Camille, and Candice are going nuts in support of their older sister!
Alicia: Maybe it’s just me, but it looks like Cam has figured out how Matsuda fights down to a tee! She knows what moves she should counter and what move she should counter with! This is the what experience looks like ladies and gentlemen! The War Queen is stunned! Another one of those forearm smashes and this match might be over before it begins!
SG1: The ref has begun the count! Monica is trying to shake Cloud back to her senses! Cam is climbing to the top rope! Monica doesn’t see Cam perched with her back turned! Consuela pulls Monica out of the way! Cloud is coming to! MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE BY CAMERON! IT’S JACKPOT FOR THE GODDESS AS THE MOONSAULT CONNECTS!
Crowd: THAT WAS AWESOME! (clap-clap clap-clap-clap)
(An instant replay shows Monica being pulled out of the way as Cam successfully lands the moonsault onto Cloud.)
SG1: Cam is RELENTLESS! Since the opening bell she’s been on Stephanie Matsuda like white on rice! Ava is already on her feet with Cloud’s hair in the grasp! Monica pushes away Consuela and is livid! Consuela’s trying to explain to her way she touched her, but Monica wants to hear none of it! Cam grabs Matsuda’s arm and WHIPS HER INTO THE BARRICADE SHOULDER-FIRST!
Alicia: Cloud is a mess right now, SG! She’s leaning against the barricade, still unsure of what to do next-
SG1: SPEAR! CAM JUST SPEARED STEPHANIE MATSUDA THROUGH THE BARRICADE! BOTH WOMEN ARE NEAR LIFELESS ON THE ARENA FLOOR!
Crowd: HOLY S–T! HOLY S–T! HOLY S–T!
Alicia: The raw power of Cameron Ella Ava! She just used her whole weight to send the Iconic War Queen through barricade! Referee Jesse Carlton is at a lost!
SG1: Both Monica and the Avas are checking on Matsuda and Cam- who is already getting to her feet! The champion is still stunned, but Cam is mobile! A count out won’t get her the victory, so she needs to get Cloud back into the ring and immediately go for the pin!
Alicia: That is if she as anything left in the tank! She grabs Stephanie and is dragging the champion back to the ring!
SG1: This is taking a lot out of Cameron! She had an explosive start, doing whatever it takes to keep the War Queen on her toes!
Alicia: Cloud has barely been able to mount any kind of offensive against her opponent! This is a much different scenario than what Matsuda may have had in mind!
SG1: Cam is able to roll Cloud back into the ring. She slides in after her and immediately goes for the pin!
SG1: Matsuda kicks out at two! Cam slams her fist onto the mat, upset that her gambit different pay off! Even she must realize that it’s going to take more than just a barricade to dethrone Matsuda!
Alicia: Cam’s frustration is going away as she picks Cloud up and hits a snap suplex! She’s gonna have to focus on weakening her opponent if she’s going to overcome her opponent! She sits Matsuda up and starts appling a chinlock!
SG1: Cam is slowing things down for a moment. She’s very much aware of Matsuda’s speed-based counters. The War Queen excels in fast-paced combat, something that is the opposite of Cam’s brawling/technical hybrid style. Ava delivers several elbows to the shoulder for good measure! Matsuda is being prevented from countering in this position! Cam slowly gets her opponent to her feet and switches to a full nelson hold! BRIDGING DRAGON SUPLEX!
SG1: Matsuda gets the shoulder up! Cam doesn’t look the least bit concerned. Many women on Empire force the pin so their opponents can waste energy to kick out.
Alicia: I’ve noticed that. It probably takes a lot to break a pin given the weight and pressure being applied to keep you down.
SG1: From a firsthand perspective, that’s something I can agree with. Cam whips Matsuda to the corner! Cloud dodges the flying clothesline! Cam lands on the second rope and springboards- CLOUD GETS CAUGHT IN THE FACE BY THE ROUNDHOUSE KICK!
Alicia: It’s like she knows Matsuda’s every move. Monica’s yelling for Cloud to get her mind in this match!
SG1: That’s the thing- I think Cloud is focused on this match, she’s just not ready for what Cam is bringing to the table! Ava hits the ropes and lands a knee drop to the sternum! Cloud curls up into a ball, feeling the effects of this onslaught! Cam’s been adopting a slow, counter-based style the likes I haven’t seen in years! From coming out to her old theme song, to what we’re seeing in the ring, this isn’t the Openweight/Tag Team Cam we’re seeing- it’s the Vixens/Hall of Fame Cam! This is before the red snapback and the short-shorts; this is the black and blue attire with the long curly haired Cam we came to know and love! Look at her eyes! This is the hungry Cameron Ella Ava who chased Cleopatra for a whole year to Vixens Champion!
Alicia: She’s carefully eyeing Cloud, who is using the ropes for support! She moves forward- CAM DODGES THE CLOUD KICKER PELE! Matsuda stumbles a bit on the land- SLINGSHOT SUPLEX BY AVA! This is not the War Queen we’re used to seeing!
SG1: Cam mounts Matsuda and starts unleashing elbow after elbow! All Cloud can do is put up her hands! She has Cloud on the ropes! Matsuda is trying to block every attack that’s coming her way!
Alicia: Wait! Cloud caught an elbow! She’s trying to counter with a gogoplata! Cam’s trying to break free! Stephanie almost has the hold locked in! Cam’s pulling back…and DEADLIFTS MATSUDA IN A POWERBOMB POSITION! CLOUD COUNTERS WITH A HURRICANRANA! The crowd is on their feet, cheering their hometown hero! Cloud has finally created some separation between her and Ava!
Crowd: LET’S GO CLOUD-Y!
Crowd: KIL-LA CAM!
Crowd: LET’S GO CLOUD-Y!
Crowd: KIL-LA CAM!
SG1: Matsuda is still out of it, trying to fight through the damage she’s accumulated so far in this match! Cam is back on her feet! Her sisters are cheering her own, while Monica is screaming at her fiance! Cam swings her leg for a soccer kick- CLOUD HAS THE LEG! WITH A BURST OF ENERGY CLOUD GETS TO HER FEET! SHE HAS AVA OVER HER SHOULDERS! SEEING SPARKS!!! SEEING SPARKS!! SHADES OF HER FUTURE SISTER-IN-LAW THE LATE BRODY SPARKS! The overhead kick finds its mark, but Cloud falls back down, too exhausted to follow up on the surprise attack! Cam is too stunned to do anything! She’s in La-La Land right now, and all Cloud has to do is crawl over and make the cover!
Alicia: The question is: can Matsuda make that cover! Does she have the strength!? Stephanie rolls over and is crawling towards Cam! You can see her gritting her teeth as she puts an arm over Cam!
Alicia: Cam immediately gets the shoulder up! Cloud has barely touched her, despite that Hail Mary she pulled using Brody Sparks’ signature! Cloud takes a knee, wondering what to do next. She sits Cam up and gets to her feet. Soccer kick to the back! Cam is holding her back! Matsuda hits the ropes! Basement dropkick to the face! Adrenaline is coursing through the veins of the Iconic War Queen as she takes control over this match! Cloud struggles as she makes her way over to the corner and climbs to the top! She actually wants to go high-risk after the beating she just took? DIVING ELBOW DROP TO THE HEART HITS THE SPOT! Instead of going for a pin, Cloud DEADLIFTS Cam and hits a gutwrench suplex! Wait! Cloud still has the waistlock applied! She switches behind her opponent- SAITO SUPLEX! Cloud’s not finished! She has Ava in a face lock and lifts Cam in the air! Matsuda’s demonstrating her power as she reveals just how much she still has in the tank as she suspends Cam in the air! DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX! Look how the ring shook from the impact! Wow!
SG1: Cloud is finding her way out the funk and back into this match! She flips Ava over with a snapmare! Spin kick to the face! Matsuda turns to the Ava sisters and flips them the bird! Come on Steph, there was no need for that!
Consuela: (yells) Basura!
Stephanie: (yells back) Basura deez nuts!
SG1: Matsuda runs towards the ropes! SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! She makes the cover!
SG1: Cloud breaks the count herself! She looks down at Cam with a grin on her face!
Stephanie: Stay woke!
SG1: SHE JUST SMACKED THE GODDESS ACROSS THE FACE! This is Matsuda returning the favor with the mindgames! She wants to get in Cam’s head! She wants to sow seeds of doubt in the mind of Cameron Ella Ava!
Alicia: If she’s going to do that, she needs to be careful. If Cam has indeed figured out her style, it’s only a matter of time before Ava turns the tide! Cloud whips Cam to the corner! The force of that running Yakuza kick has knocked Ava into a seated position! Matsda charges to the other side of the corner! She comes running back! AVA AVOIDS THE CANNONBALL! Cloud flips out to the apron and springboards! FINAL HEAVEN! AVA GOT CAUGHT IN THE FACE BY CLOUD’S SIGNATURE SPRINGBOARD FOREARM! This is what we talked about! As soon as the match started to speed up, Matsuda goes back to dominating this match! She’s climbing to the outside! With on leap, she lands on the top turnbuckle! Is this it!? Is She going for the C9!?
SG1: SCORPIO SPLASH! CLOUD FLIES FOR THE 450- CAM ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! Matsuda lands into a roll and jumps back to her feet! STANDING CORKSCREW MOONSAULT! SHE HIT A STANDING VERSION OF THE CLOUD 9! CLOUD GOES FOR THE PIN!
SG1: AVA KICKS OUT AT THE LAST SECOND! Matsuda’s putting on the pressure, not even giving Cam a chance to compose herself! Cloud picks up The Goddess and tosses her out of the ring! Consuela, Candice, and Camille gather around their eldest, trying to get her to her feet! Meanwhile Stephanie drops to a knee as the whole Barclays arena begins stomping their feet to the terminator theme! We’re in familiar territory here…
Crowd: (Stomp-stomp stomp stomp-stomp)
SG1: Matsuda hits the ropes and comes charging towards the edge…CLOUD CON HILO! THE AVA SISTERS DIVE OUT THE WAY AS A FLYING CLOUD LANDS ON A KNEELING GODDESS! Cloud falls to her knees, but you can tell by the look on her face, she’s ecstatic! Matsuda runs and jumps on top of the barricade! She jumps down, her attention turned back to her opponent! We need to see that again!
(An instant replay shows Cloud pulling off a successful rope-step tope con hilo upon Cameron as her sisters move out of the way.)
Crowd: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
Alicia: The Barclays Center is on FIRE right now! Cloud got her groove back! And now has Cameron outside-
SG1: KNOCK BITCHES OUT! AVA OUT OF NOWHERE WITH A LEAPING FOREARM SMASH AS CLOUD APPROACHED HER! IT WAS A DESPERATE ATTEMPT THAT PAID OFF! IT’S LIGHTS OUT FOR MATSUDA AT THE MOMENT!
SG1: Cam walks over to Cloud and picks her up! She turns and whips Cloud into the barricade! Shades of what she’s done earlier! You can tell she’s still feeling the effects of Matsuda’s assault! She starts pushing her boot in Cloud’s face, squeezing her head against the barricade! She lifts Matsuda the shoulder, while holding her by the legs…OH MY GOD! ALABAMA SLAM AGAINST THE BARRICADE! CLOUD’S BACK NEARLY SNAPPED IN HALF! Stephanie’s in absolute pain!
Alicia: That was painful to watch! Cloud doesn’t look well right now! She’s holding her back, wincing in pain! Cam doesn’t care as she grabs Cloud by the hair, dragging her back to the ring!
Alicia: Cameron WHIPS MATSUDA INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Cloud tried to brace the impact with her shoulder, but it made things worse as she’s holding it while lying on the floor! Cam looks so heartless right now- I don’t think there’s an ounce of sympathy in her face right now! She picks up Cloud and SLAMS HER ARM INTO THE RING POST! Cloud finds herself curled up in a ball again as Cam waits for no one and throws Matsuda back into the ring! Ava follows suit, sliding into the ring!
SG1: Cam has that spark in her eye…it looks like she wants to end things here and now! She has Cloud’s leg! AVA LOCK! CAMERON HAS THE MODIFIED INVERTED STF APPLIED! MATSUDA’S HANDS ARE AWAY FROM THE ROPES! THIS MAY BE IT FOR THE ICONIC WAR QUEEN! CAM IS WRENCHING THAT NECK BACK! MATSUDA MAY TAP OUT IN FRONT OF HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY! RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER FIANCE! STEPH IS DOING WHATEVER SHE CAN TO BREAK OUT OF THE HOLD, BUT THE FLEXIBILITY OF AVA AND HER WEAKENED STATE IS WORKING AGAINST HER! AVA IS APPLYING PRESSURE TO THE BACK SHE JUST DESTROYED WHEN DELIVERING THAT ALABAMA SLAM AGAINST THE BARRICADE! MATSUDA’S SCREAMING OUT IN PAIN! I NEVER HEARD HER SCREAM LIKE THIS BEFORE! SHE JUST MAY TAP, SHE JUST MAY-
Alicia: What the heck! A shoe just hit Cam upside the head!? Where the hell did that come from!? The ref didn’t see it, but it made Cam break the hold, allowing Cloud to roll away in escape! Wait! That’s one of Monica Vaughan’s heels! She’s out here wearing one shoe! Cam picks it up and looks in her direction! She looks PISSED! Camille’s pointing at Monica! Cam nods and directs her sisters to go after Matsuda’s manager/fiance! Monica takes off her other shoe and makes a break for it! Camille and Candice chase after her while Consuela runs the opposite end! Monica doesn’t see her! Cam turns her attention back to Cloud- SURPRISE ROLL-UP BY MATSUDA!
Alicia: CAM KICKS OUT IN TIME! After interference from her girlfriend, Cloud finds herself with another chance to make it out of this match intact and possibly still the champion! She crawls over Cam and starts slamming her head against the mat! One! Two! Three! Four! ANOTHER SLAP ACROSS THE FACE! Ava rolls to the side, holding her face!
SG1: You can see the viciousness in these women’s eyes as this match continues on! Meanwhile, Monica makes her way into the crowd, who looks eager to protect her from Cam’s sisters! Matsuda picks up her lady’s shoe and tosses it into the crowd! Jesse Carlton points at crowd, giving a warning. Cloud blows her off and begins to stomp her opponent repeatedly on the head while holding onto the ropes! Matsuda drags Cam from the ropes and lifts her over her shoulders! Cams out of the powerbomb attempt and lands behind Cloud! Matsuda turns around- SHE DODGES THE BICYCLE KICK! CAM DODGES THE CLOUD TRIGGER BICYCLE KNEE! MATSUDA DUCKS THE PELE KICK! LAST SURPRISE!!!!!

SHE HAS FOUND A WAY AROUND MATSUDA’S MOST POTENT WEAPON!!! Cam isn’t finished! She lifts Matsuda over her shoulders!! BREAKING BARRIERS!!!! THE ARGENTINE BACKBREAKER RACK ATTACK!!! SHE HITS IT!!! CAM GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Alicia: Cam raises her hand in victory! The ref is tapping her shoulder and points at Matsuda’s foot on the rope! Cameron can’t believe it! The crowd is going nuts! Cameron would’ve been the new Unified Women’s Champion! Cam is LIVID! She used one of her strongest moves and nothing has come out of it! Ava pulls Matsuda away from the ropes! She puts Cloud over her shoulders once more! SHE’S GOING FOR ANOTHER BREAKING BARRIERS! THIS TIME 2.0!! AVA SWINGS CLOUD AROUND FOR THE FIREMAN’S CARRY STUNNER! MATSUDA SPINS OUT OF IT! SHE LANDS AND FLIPS CAM OVER HER SHOULDER! She stumbles a bit- AIR RAID CRASH NECKBREAKER! WHAT A COUNTER FROM MATSUDA! BOTH WOMEN ARE LAID OUT ON THE MAT! BOTH ARE DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO STAY IN THIS MATCH!
SG1: Referee Jesse Carlton has begun the countdown for a double K.O.! Both Cloud and Cam are stirring, but still exhausted from the toll this match has taken on them! You can tell they want to get to their feet, but it’s taking more time than usual! Monica is in the front row, cheering on her lover! The Ava sisters are hitting the mat, yelling for Cam to get back to her feet! The crowd is more mixed than before! Barclays is giving The Goddess as much respect as they’re giving The War Queen herself!
Crowd: LET’S GO CLOUD-Y!

Crowd: THIS IS AWESOME!! (clap-clap clap-clap-clap)
(The instant replay shows Cam tapping into her inner strength to fly over the ropes, landing on Cloud. Her sisters are seen jumping up and down with glee!)
SG1: From the beginning this match has been “whatever you can do I can do better!” We’re witnessing the battle of two titans of the industry! What you see before you is the pinnacle in women’s wrestling here in EAW! “The Goddess” Cameron Ella Ava vs “The Iconic War Queen” Stephanie Matsuda! The entire Barclays Center is on their feet! BROOKLYN STAND UP BECAUSE IT’S ABOUT TO GET WILD!
Alicia: The ref has begun the count and Matsuda finds herself at the mercy of Ava as she starts firing off forearm shots! Cloud seems like she’s being worn down! How much does she have left in the tank!? Cam whips Cloud towards the barricade once more- MATSUDA REVERSE AND WHIPS AVA INSTEAD! Cam hits the barricade back first- YAKUZA KICK TO THE HEAD AND CAM IS KNOCKED INTO THE AUDIENCE!
SG1: Cloud turns to the Ava sisters and does a crotch chop! All three sisters flip the bird at Cloud who responds with a smile and rolls into the ring. What is she up to? Cam is getting to her feet, shaking off the cobwebs. The grueling nature of this match is beginning to eat away at her. Matsuda watches her from inside the ring, her eyes dead focused on her opponent! I don’t know what Matsuda is up to, but I have a feeling I’m not going to- she’s running to the opposite corner!? Cloud’s picking up speed as she charges towards the corner closest to Cam’s location in the audience! She leaps off the second rope to the top turnbuckle-
Alicia: FINAL HEAVEN!!!! MATSUDA’S FLYING SKY HIGH WITH HER FIST STRETCHED BACK!! WHAT THE HELL DID WE JUST SEE!!?? CLOUD JUST HIT THE FINAL HEAVEN FROM THE RING INTO THE AUDIENCE AS SHE CRASHES INTO THE GODDESS!!!
Crowd: HOLY S–T! HOLY S–T! HOLY S–T! HOLY S–T! HOLY S–T!
SG1: TAKE FLIGHT- THAT’S CLOUD! HOW IN THE HELL! HOW IN THE HELL DID MATSUDA JUST DO THAT! Putting everything on the line and throwing caution to the wind! I haven’t seen Cloud fly that high since she dove into the audience in her match against Cleopatra back on Battleground! Both Cam and Cloud are not moving! The chairs seem to break Cloud and Cam’s fall upon impact! We need to see this against because I still can’t believe what the hell I just see!?
(An instant replay shows Cloud jumping off the top turnbuckle to the outside with her Final Heaven signature)
SG1: The ref has restarted the count as Cloud and Cam both lie near motionless onto the outside! Monica rushes over to Stephanie and tries to wake her up! Consuela climbs the barricade to reach Cam and do the same! Either woman can’t be touched, or else the ref will call for a disqualification! This is no more a battle between two athletes, but rather two superheroes! We’re seeing a clash of titans, two of the strongest women in the world giving it their all! Matsuda seems to be coming too! She slowly gets to her hands and knees! How is this possible!? The average person would be laid out right now!
SG1: Cloud grabbing Cam and barely gets her over the barricade! She follows suit, hitting the floor as she climbs over the barricade herself!
Alicia: Matsuda has Ava by the hair and is dragging her back to the ring! Camille and Candice are cheering on their sister, trying to help her find some sort of strength from within! Matsuda’s straining! You can tell it’s taking everything for her to get Cam back into the ring! She doesn’t want to win this in any old way! She wants to beat Cameron! She wants to pin or submit her! Matsuda is almost there! She’s not that far from the apron! Ava’s body is still limp at this point!
SG1: You can see the marks on Cloud and Cam’s bodies. There’s nothing fake about what we’re witnessing. These ladies are very much putting their well-being on the line here! Stephanie rolls Cam back into the ring and slides in! She makes the pin!
SG1: Jesse Carlton has stopped the count! Cam’s foot is on the ropes! Stephanie looks just as confused as I am! Consuela’s not too far away from her sister! Matsuda’s fans are pointing at her! Is Brooklyn really snitching on Consuela to the ref!?
Crowd: BA-SU-RA! BA-SU-RA! BA-SU-RA!

SG1: CLOUD KICKS OUT!!!! MATSUDA WAS A NANOSECOND FROM LOSING EVERYTHING!!! CAM ROLLS OUT OF THE KICKOUT! SHE’S ON HER FEET! CAM HITS THE ROPES! SHE’S GOING FOR IT! SHE’S GOING FOR IN EXCELSIS!!!!
Alicia: DROP TOEHOLD COUNTER BY MATSUDA! CAM HITS THE MAT! CLOUD HAS AN ARM AND LOCKS IT AROUND HER LEG! SHE GRABS ONE OF CAM’S LEGS AND WRENCHES IT BACK!! THE BLASIAN SUNRISE!!! SHE HAS THE BLASIAN SUNRISE LOCKED IN PLACE! SHE’S DEAD CENTER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH CAMERON ELLA AVA, ONE OF THE GREATEST TO EVER FIGHT IN THIS RING! A SUBMISSION VICTORY WOULD CATAPULT MATSUDA TO THE GREATEST OF HEIGHTS!
SG1: JESSE CARLTON IS CHECKING ON CAM, WHO’S DOING EVERYTHING IN HER POWER TO STAY IN THIS! HER SISTERS ARE CHANTING FOR HER TO STAY STRONG! CLOUD STILL HAS THE HOLD LOCKED IN PLACE!! CAM’S SCREAMING IN ABSOLUTE PAIN!!! SHE’S IN TOTAL MISERY RIGHT NOW!!! AVA REFUSES TO TAP! SHE’S TRYING TO USE HER ONE FREE HAND TO PULL HERSELF TO THE ROPES, BUT EACH TIME MATSUDA PULLS HER BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING!
Alicia: THIS DOESN’T LOOK GOOD FOR CAM! SHE’S FADING FAST!! JESSE CARLTON RAISES HER ARM AND IT DROPPED BACK DOWN! MATSUDA IS WRENCHING BACK THE ARMS AND LEGS, FOLDING CAM’S BACK LIKE AN ACCORDION! YOU CAN TELL THIS IS HURTING MATSUDA JUST AS MUCH AS IT’S HURTING AVA! CLOUD TOOK SO MUCH DAMAGE IN THIS MATCH, ESPECIALLY TO HER OWN BACK! CARLTON RAISES THE ARM AGAIN AND IT FALLS BACK ON THE MAT! CAM LOOKS OUT OF IT! THE 19,000 FANS HERE IN THE BARCLAYS CENTER IS ON THE EDGE OF THEIR SEAT!!! CAMILLE, CONSUELA, AND CANDICE ARE PRACTICALLY IN TEARS! MONICA IS HITTING THE BARRICADE SURROUNDED BY STEPHANIE’S CLOSEST FAMILY AND FRIENDS! CLOUD STRETCHES HERSELF BACK ALL THE WAY!!! CAM ISN’T MOVING!! JESSE CARLTON CHECKS ON THE GODDESS ONE MORE TIME…
Ava Sisters: …
SG1: CAMERON’S ARM DROPS! JESSE CARLTON CALLS FOR THE BELL!
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: CAM HAS PASSED OUT!! THE GODDESS HAS BEEN SLAIN!! STEPHANIE MATSUDA HAS DEFEATED CAMERON ELLA AVA AND RETAINED THE UNIFIED WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP!
(“Kill Jill (Remix)” by Archie and Sizzle plays as Stephanie Matsuda lets go of the hold and collapses onto the mat as the crowd goes nuts!)
Cori Simmons: Your winner…AND STILL your EAW Unified Women’s Champion…STEPHANIEEEE “CLOUD” MATSUUUUUDAAAAAAAA!!!
Alicia: She did it! Cloud did it! She defeated Cameron Ella Ava, perhaps one of the best to fight in this ring!
SG1: This had to be Cloud’s toughest battle yet! One where she couldn’t rely on her usual tactics to get her through the match! She had to risk it all to tear down the wall that is Cameron Ella Ava!
Alicia: Cloud is barely conscious now as Monica slides into the ring to check on her! All three Avas have come to their sister’s aid as medical officials check on her. It looks like Cam has passed out from the pain. The Blasian Sunrise is one of the most lethal submissions in EAW, or perhaps in wrestling right now!
SG1: This will go down in the record books, but now we have a 1-1 situation between these ladies. All I can say is – when will be the next time we see these women break the tie? And who will be Matsuda’s opponent when we come back!

(“It’s All About Me” — Melanie Mercer plays as the crowd gives a mixed reaction for Kassidy Heart, who walks out with the Empire Tag Team Championship on her shoulder. Next to her is Sienna Jade. Sienna is shown to be giving Kassidy a pep talk as Kassidy nods as she focuses on the ring. Kassidy poses on top of the ramp as Sienna takes a step forward, but is stopped by Kassidy.)
Kassidy Heart: I got this.
Sienna Jade: Kass, are you sure?
Kassidy Heart (takes a deep breath as she hands Sienna her Empire Tag Team Championship): Yes.
Sienna Jade (looks hesitant to leave Kassidy): Okay.
(Sienna Jade still looks hesitant to leave Kassidy Heart to compete alone, but walks over to the back as Kassidy takes another deep breath as she walks to the ring with a focus and confidence about her.)
SG1: This is an interesting turn of events. I thought that Sienna Jade would be making her presence known in this match to help Kassidy Heart out! By the looks of things, Kassidy is flying solo. She wants to beat Astraea Jordan without any help at all. Kassidy Heart has managed to make it through this tournament without relying on her best friend and tag team partner. It seems like she wants to end this tournament the same way she’s made it here. She wants to do this by herself. She wants to do this alone.
Alicia Amby: She has managed to make it to the finals without Sienna’s help. I think it is possible for Kassidy to win the entire thing! To her, she needs to prove that she doesn’t need anyone to help her out! She needs to prove to everyone that she is more than a pretty face! She wants to be taken seriously as a professional wrestler and a victory over Astraea Jordan may help her do that. Astraea is a huge favorite in this tournament, so Kassidy has her work cut out for her.
(“Party Goin’ Dumb” — Rico Nasty plays as the crowd gives a mixed reaction to Astraea Jordan who walks out with her Unified Tag Team Championship on her shoulder. Next to her is her boyfriend, Malcolm Jones, who is clapping and singing Astraea’s praises as Astraea poses on the top of the ramp. Soon after, Malcolm goes forward and waits for Astraea to stand next to him as Astraea pulls him back by the collar of his expensive shirt.)
Astraea Jordan: I got this, boo. Sienna not out there, so I don’t need you out there with me.
Malcolm Jones: We promised that we would be there for each other.
Astraea Jordan: Remember the last time you got involved? I got everything taken care of.
Malcolm Jones: Fine, I’ll you show the world why Astraea is better.
Astraea Jordan (hands Malcolm her Unified Tag Team Championship): I will like I always do.
(Malcolm Jones walks to the back as Astraea Jordan takes a deep breath before walking down the ramp and going to the ring.)
Alicia Amby: Astraea Jordan not letting her boyfriend and tag team partner, Malcolm Jones get himself involved in the match. For anyone who is not sure what happened the last time, well, Malcolm got himself involved and it costed Astraea a chance of defeating Stephanie Matsuda and becoming Women’s World Champion! I think this was a smart move for Astraea. Astraea and Kassidy will be facing each other with no one at their corners!
SG1: Astraea Jordan is a huge favorite in this tournament and she’s managed to make her way to the finals. Not only that, but just like Kassidy Heart, she is a Tag Team Champion in her own right. Astraea finally gets a huge opportunity and there is nothing in this world that can mess it up for her now.

SG1: WHAT AN AMAZING MATCH! WHAT A ROLLERCOASTER OF A MAIN EVENT! I THOUGHT ASTRAEA JORDAN OR KASSIDY HEART COULD HAVE WALKED AWAY WITH THE CROWN!
Alicia Amby: In the end, it was Astraea Jordan that prevailed and showed that world why #AstraeaBetter. Kassidy Heart put on an amazing performance and surely, she gave people something to talk about in the end. She truly shined in this match. It would have been perfect to top it off with a victory,but regardless, she did fantastic and she should not be ashamed of the performance.
(The camera goes to Kassidy Heart who is sitting on the top of the ramp. She is covering her mouth as she is muffling her crying. You can see tears falling from her face. Kassidy is devastated. Sienna Jade goes down to Kassidy’s level to consult and comfort her. Sienna hugs Kassidy and picks her up as the crowd is seen applauding Kassidy and her efforts in the match.)
(The crowd begins to boo as…Malcolm Jones makes his presence known. He waves bye to Jaded Hearts. Sienna gives him the middle finger as the crowd cheers for the reaction before taking Kassidy to the back. Malcolm makes his way down the ramp as he is applauding Astraea.)
Malcolm Jones: THAT IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!
(Malcolm steps inside the ring as the two members of Drillmatic embrace one another and Malcolm raises Astraea’s hand as the crowd boos louder Cori Simmons steps into the ring as she walks over to Astraea and places the crown on top of her head.)
Malcolm Jones: I TOLD YOU ALL SHE WOULD WIN! THIS IS WHAT BLACK EXCELLENCE LOOKS LIKE!
Alicia Amby: Due to Astraea Jordan winning Empress of Elite, she stamps her ticket to Road to Redemption in December where she faces Stephanie Matsuda for the Undisputed Women’s World Championship!
SG1: The crowd’s exploding! Look who we have here!
(Stephanie Matsuda is standing on top of the ramp with the Undisputed Women’s World Championship on her shoulder. Astraea Jordan gestures for the championship on her waist as Stephanie raises the title high up in the air.)
Alicia Amby: Stephanie Matsuda vs. Astraea Jordan for the Undisputed Women’s World Championship at Road to Redemption is on! But, it looks like we are out of time! Thank you for those that tuned in for Manifest Destiny! I am SG1 and she is Alicia Amby and we’re signing off!
