(EAW intro plays…)
Narrator: ‘Odyssey’ is defined as a long and eventual journey or experience…
(An instrumental version of “Game of Survival” by Ruelle begins to play as it pans the empty streets of Seoul, South Korea before panning to the Gocheok Sky Dome.)
Narrator: But, these journeys have their roadblocks…
(It begins to show a series of articles from sports and dirt sheet sites mentioning Chris Elite using the Gawd Contract to cancel the Asia portion of the EAW tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)
Narrator: Three men vying for a unique opportunity which can propel them to the next level…
(It pans inside the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, Maine as it shows Bronson Daniels already in the ring. Two sets of lights go on as MITSUBACHI and Dray Fontana appear on each side of Bronson. Each of these men looked more than prepared to begin to clash with each other.)
Narrator: A woman looking to get her hands on a conniving woman who will stop at nothing to get her agenda across…
(It shows Harper Lee in the ring, looking around before lights go on, shining down on Veena Adams, who rests her arms on the turnbuckle with a smirk on her face, looking clearly confident, but disgusted at Harper. Both women glare at each other as Harper tries to egg Veena on for a fight.)
Narrator: Two men looking to revive a past rivalry from a year ago…
(It goes to Shaker Jones in the ring, looking for Ryan Wilson, but a spotlight shines from Ryan standing on the stage with a calm and confident look on his face.)
Narrator: But, the circumstances are more hardcore…
(Ryan Wilson pulls out a barbed wire hockey stick and taps it to the ground. Shaker Jones gestures for Ryan to get to the ring, but Ryan remains on top of the stage.)
Narrator: Two women so alike with each other look vye for a chance to be Universal Women’s Champion …
(It shows Minerva inside the ring with the Universal Women’s Championship on her shoulder. A spotlight turns on behind her as Kasey Kaos is shown to be behind Minerva as Minerva turns around as she forms a smirk at Kasey. Meanwhile, Kasey gives a bigger smirk in return as she looks at the Universal Women’s Championship on Minerva’s shoulder.)
Narrator: A man looks to redeem himself from his losses by facing a multi-time World Champion and one of the greatest of all time…
(A spotlight turns on as it shows Xander Payne and Impact staring down in the middle of the ring. Both men with intense looks in their eyes. Xander more than looks forward to a fight, but Impact just stands there with such a calm smirk on his face.)
Narrator: A champion looks forward to solidifying himself as the workhorse of the Showdown brand by competing in more than one match tonight…
(Jake Smith takes his place in the center of the ring with the PURE Championship on his shoulder. A light goes on next to him, where Alexis Chambers stands next to him. Both form smirks on their faces as the camera pans to Harlow Reichert and Xavier Williams standing across from them in the ring.)
Narrator: One of the matches being a tornado tag team match against some of the best wrestlers in the planet…
(The lights go off.)
(The lights go back on. Harlow Reichert and Xavier Williams have completely disappeared, leaving Jake Smith and Alexis Chambers by themselves. He turns himself around as he faces… Lucas Johnson and Shane Gates. Lucas as Albert Hitchman being him looking devious. Shane Gates has his wife, Angela Grant looking intimidating behind her. All of them stand in a triangle formation, waiting to see who makes the first move.)
Narrator: A Gawd looks to prove that he’s the People’s Champion and strip a man of the one thing that’s empowered him for the longest time…
(Chris Elite is seen in the ring holding his burned up Gawd Contract. The lights go off on the stage before going back on where Mr. DEDEDE sits on his throne on the stage and the Answers World Championship on his lap, looking at Chris in the ring.)
Narrator: Six Elitists lock themselves in a prison with ‘No Way Out’…
(The No Way Out structure is seen with the clashing lights. One by one, the lights begin to turn on with Jamie O’Hara, Myles, Ahren Fournier, Candice Blair and Lance Blackfyre inside. All of these Elitists are staring down with each other. Ahren begins to count the competitors before realizing that it’s just five of them and the sixth person is nowhere to be seen.)
Narrator: …And none of them will know what hit them…
(A hand is seen on top of the light switch backstage. The face is not revealed as the unknown person switches the lights off as everything goes pitch black.)
Narrator: But for everyone…
(The lights go back on with all of the No Way Out participants looking towards each other. Candice Blair points at the bottom of their feet.)
Narrator: Odyssey will lead them to the same place…
(The camera pans to the mat that all the participants are standing on in the ring. The Pain for Pride logo appears in the middle of the ring. All of them taking their feet off of the Pain for Pride logo as that’s the last thing that the camera catches.)
Narrator: To Pain for Pride…
(Cuts to black.)
(“Game of Survival” continues to play.)
Narrator: AND NOW… ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING AND SHOWDOWN PRESENT: ODYSSEY!
(The camera pans inside the empty Cross Insurance Arena. The blue, gold and white pyro goes off around the stage.)
(SCREEN BAR — PORTLAND, MAINE!)
Gavin Kirkland: Ladies and gentlemen, we welcome you to Showdown’s last stop before Pain for Pride! Welcome to Odyssey! I am Gavin Kirkland! The beautiful woman in the center is Eve and the man not as handsome as myself is none other than Deadprez!
Deadprez: Despite the current situation going on with the world and Chris Elite’s Gawd Contract, we are not going to stop that from doing everything we can to deliver a spectacular show to remember! The Dynasty brand had an excellent Gateway to Glory, but we’re going to take things up a notch tonight which is going to leave our friends on Voltage, scrambling for a way to surpass us!
Eve: So many matches on the card with the potential to steal the entire weekend and we’re beginning the show with one of them!
(The camera pans to Gina Romano in the middle of the ring.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen, this OPENING contest is a TORNADO TAG TEAM MATCH scheduled for ONE FALL!!…
(“Day of Fate” by Jonathon Young hits as Xavier Williams slowly makes his way through the curtain and out onto the stage. He stands on the stage staring about at the empty arena before turning his head back towards the curtain as “Day of Fate” fades out and “Eye of the Tiger” by New Found Glory blasts through the speakers and Harlow Reichert confidently walks through the curtain and stands beside Xavier. The two make their way down to the ring and enter the ring, both facing back up the ramp waiting for their opponents to make their arrival.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first making their way towards the ring, weighing in tonight at a combined weight of 347 POUNDS!!!… THEY ARE THE TEAM OF XAVIER WILLIAMS… AND HARLOW REEEEEICHEEEERRTTT!!!!
Eve: What a way that we’re going to kick off Odyssey tonight! The FIRST match tonight for the PURE Champion, who is going to be defending that championship later tonight against both Shane Gates and Lucas Johnson! But, boy, what an uphill battle the champion is going to have tonight.
Deadprez: You can see the determination in both of the eyes of Harlow Reichert and Xavier Williams. There’s no hiding the animosity between both Jake Smith and Harlow Reichert over the PURE Championship, but this is a different playing ground now. You can argue that Xavier Williams had Jake Smith beaten on Showdown a few weeks ago before Alexis Chambers got involved, but that means nothing now. This isn’t necessarily a match type that suits Harlow Reichert. There’s NOTHING off limits in this match. Xavier put her in this position too. Both Jake and Alexis aren’t going to hesitate in trying to take either of their heads off with anything that they can get their hands on.
Gavin Kirkland: You’re right, Harlow does look as amazing as ever. :hearteyes:
(“Eye of the Tiger” fades out as the silence around the arena is deafening. Both Xavier Williams and Harlow Reichert keep their eyes locked up on the ramp as “War” by grandson finally hits as Alexis Chambers makes her way through the curtain first, skipping out onto the stage followed by Jake Smith who has the PURE Champion hanging from his shoulder. The two stand on the stage looking down at their opponents in the ring as Jake Smith proudly raises the PURE Championship in the air as that usual arrogant smirk crosses his face. The two finally begin to make their way down to the ring.)
Gina Romano: Introducing their opponents making their way down to the ring, weighing in tonight at a combined weight of 327 POUNDS!!… THEY ARE THE TEAM OF ALEXIS CHAMBERS… AND THE PURE CHAMPION, JAKE SMIIIITTTHH!!!
Eve: It’s going to be amazing to see how the PURE Champion is going to come out of this match. It would be a miracle if Jake Smith is able to come out of this match unscathed, but I can’t see this being anything other than an absolute war.
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson hasn’t hidden the fact that he wants to get that PURE Championship off the shoulder of Jake Smith and after tonight there’s a HUGE possibility that he may get his wish tonight. Jake doesn’t have to just worry about defending that championship later tonight – but, he has to worry about making sure he can walk out of this match now. He, alongside Alexis Chambers, are standing across the ring from a former World Champion and Hall of Famer and the woman that ended the first PURE Championship reign of Jake Smith back at Road to Redemption in December of last year.
Eve: It’s going to be interesting — OH MY!! XAVIER WILLIAMS!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS JUST TOOK OUT BOTH JAKE SMITH AND ALEXIS CHAMBERS WITH A TOPE CON HILO THE MOMENT THAT THEY GOT TO THE BOTTOM OF THE RAMP!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: Even Harlow Reichert looks like she’s in shock as the referee calls for the bell! Xavier stands over both of their opponents as they both stir on the ground – and Xavier grabs the PURE Champion and rolls him into the ring! Xavier looks back at Harlow in the ring who nods her head! Jake Smith is in an absolute daze as Harlow backs into the corner! Jake staggers back to his feet AS HARLOW SHOOTS FORWARD!!! LES MISERABLES!!! THAT KNEE TO THE JAW OF THE PURE CHAMPION!!! HARLOW DOESN’T TRANSITION INTO THAT TWISTER THAT USUALLY FOLLOWS THAT KNEE, INSTEAD OPTING TO SHOOT INTO THE COVER!!!
ONE!!!!… TWO!!!!… KICKOUT!!!!
Eve: Jake Smith kicks out, but he’s certainly not in a good way! Xavier makes his way back into the ring as Harlow makes her way back up to her feet! Jake Smith is clutching at his jaw; that knee connected absolutely flush! Both Harlow Reichert and Xavier Williams stalk as Jake Smith crawls back into the corner! Jake dragging himself back up to his feet – AND XAVIER WILLIAMS MEETS HIM WITH A RUNNING FOREARM SMASH! Jake clutching onto the top rope to keep himself standing AND HARLOW FOLLOWS UP BY DRIVING HER SHOULDER INTO THE RIBS OF JAKE AND TRAPPING HIM IN THE CORNER!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS WITH A BICYCLE YAKUZA KICK!!! ANOTHER SHOT CRACKS THE PURE CHAMPION FLUSH IN THE JAW!!! Harlow lets Jake Smith out of the corner as he stumbles forward and he drops down to his hands and knees! Xavier’s calling for the end! Jake may have kicked out of Les Miserables, but he’s not going to be able to take another big move! Jake’s pushing himself back to a knee AS XAVIER WILLIAMS SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE!!! ASHES OF THE PHOENIX!!!
Gavin Kirkland: No! NO! ALEXIS CHAMBERS CUTS HIM OFF WITH A KENDO STICK SHOT DIRECTLY TO THE HEAD!!! XAVIER WILLIAMS CRASHES BACK OFF THE MIDDLE ROPE AND DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!! Harlow rushes towards Alexis, but Jake Smith latches onto her leg! Harlow drives her boot into the head of the PURE Champion, but that gives Alexis Chambers enough time to get into the ring! Harlow turns – and Alexis cracks her in the ribs with that Kendo Stick! Harlow clutches at her midsection as she drops down to a knee! Alexis now cracks that Kendo Stick across the back of Harlow Reichert! Harlow screams out in pain as Alexis’ eyes light up with pleasure! Jake Smith is back to his feet, trying to shake out the cobwebs from that early onslaught from both Xavier Williams and Harlow Reichert. Xavier Williams grabs onto the ropes, trying to pull himself back up, but Jake Smith grabs him by the hair and sends him out of the ring! Xavier hits that thin padding that covers the concrete flooring! Jake Smith telling Alexis to keep on Harlow as he leaves the ring and follows the former World Champion!
Eve: I don’t think that Alexis has any issues with continuing to keep control while she has that kendo stick in hand. Alexis cracks that kendo stick across the spine of Harlow again! Look at Xavier’s head! Blood is already beginning to stream down from a cut caused by that shot to the head from Alexis Chambers! Jake grabs onto Xavier; Xavier’s trying to fight back, but JAKE SMITH SENDS HIM CRASHING INTO THOSE STEEL STEPS! Those steps exploding from the impact! Jake Smith’s pleased with his work as Xavier remains down in a heap. Jake turning his head back towards the ring as ALEXIS CHAMBERS DRIVES THAT KENDO STICK INTO THE RIGHT ARM OF HARLOW REICHERT! You have to wonder if that right arm is at 100% after Under Siege two months ago…
Deadprez: Alexis Chambers happy with the position she’s in, finally tossing that kendo stick aside as drags Harlow back up to her feet. Xavier Williams is back to his hands and knees, but Jake Smith puts him back down with a punt to the ribs! You can see Xavier immediately take a deep breath, the air had to be all driven out from that shot! Back in the ring, Alexis sends Harlow into the corner! Harlow hits those turnbuckles! Jumping clothesline from Alexis Chambers! Harlow staggers out of the corner! LIGHTS OUT! SUPERKICK FROM ALEXIS CHAMBERS! No! Harlow catches the boot and spins Alexis around! European Uppercut from the former PURE Champion! Another! Jake turns his attention back to the ring and then looks at Xavier! He’s in two minds. He can help Alexis or continue to keep control over Xavier Williams! Jake shakes his head… and begins to tear apart the spanish announcers table! Jake Smith may have intentions of taking Xavier Williams out of the equation all together! Harlow has Alexis backed up in the ring! Harlow grabs the arm of Alexis and sends her across the ring with an irish whip! Alexis hits the ropes and rebounds back!
Gavin Kirkland: Thicclow catches her with a roll up! She doesn’t hold the cover, instead rolling Alexis back and popping back up to her feet! SUPERKICK! Harlow with a wicked kick to Alexis Chambers! Jake shoots up onto the apron and Harlow meets him with a forearm! Jake falls back… but catches onto the top rope! Harlow looks for another, but Jake drops down and drives his shoulder into the ribs of Harlow Reichert! Harlow staggers back – but Xavier from behind Jake! Xavier slips up behind Jake and tries to pull him off the apron and onto his shoulders! Jake is still latching onto that top rope – but Harlow cracks him again with another forearm! Jake loses grip of the top rope! Jake trying to fight off the shoulders of Xavier Williams – BUT XAVIER WILLIAMS POWERBOMBS HIM INTO THAT ANNOUNCERS TABLE! THAT TABLE DOESN’T BREAK, BUT JAKE’S SPINE JARS IN PAIN!
Deadprez: But, Alexis from behind Harlow! Alexis locks her by the waist and pushes her into the ropes! Alexis tries to roll back, but Harlow grabs onto the ropes to block! Alexis sent rolling back on her own, but shoots back up to her feet and forward! What a spinning back elbow from Harlow Reichert! Alexis falls back, but Harlow catches her by the arm and pulls her in! Harlow hooks both arms and powers her up! THE DIVINE COMEDY! BUTTERFLY PILEDRIVER TO ALEXIS CHAMBERS!!! ALEXIS CHAMBERS SPIKED INTO THE CANVAS!!! COVER!!!
ONE!!!!… TWO!!!! THRE-KICKOUT!!!
Eve: Alexis Chambers is able to kick out, but look at Xavier Williams! I think that Jake pulling apart that announcers table may have set up his own demise! Xavier climbs up onto the spanish announcers table and lifts the PURE Champion up with him! If Xavier is able to do this I don’t believe that Jake Smith is going to be able to defend his championship later tonight! Xavier grabbing Jake Smith by both arms and delivers a knee! Jake Smith slumps in front of the former EAW World Champion! Harlow’s back in the ring – GREAT EXPECTATIONS!!! HARLOW HAS THAT FUJIWARA ARMBAR ON ALEXIS CHAMBERS!!!

XAVIER WILLIAMS IS BLINDED AS… JAKE DROPS DOWN AND DELIVERS A LOW BLOW!!! XAVIER DROPPING DOWN TO HIS KNEES, BUT NOT FOR LONG AS JAKE PULLS HIM IN!!!
Jake Smith: HARLOW!
Eve: Harlow sees the position that Xavier’s in!
Jake Smith: You release or he dies.
Eve: Harlow is in two minds! She has this match won, but it could be at the price of her mentor’s career! She knows what’s coming! Jake has both arms locked; the same move that he used from the top rope to take back that PURE Championship at Under Siege! Harlow releases the arms of Alexis Chambers and shoots towards Jake Smith! OH MY GOD!!! OH MY GOD!! RIDE TO HELL TO XAVIER WILLIAMS!! XAVIER WILLIAMS JUST SPIKED THROUGH THAT SPANISH ANNOUNCERS TABLE!! SOMEBODY NEEDS TO CHECK HIM!
Deadprez: Xavier’s in a heap! His eyes are closed! Who knows the damage that may have just been done to the neck of Xavier Williams! Harlow has snapped! She mounts the PURE Champion and begins to fire away! Jake is trying to cover up, but Harlow changes between punches to both the face and ribs! Harlow finally relents to check on her partner and mentor who still hasn’t moved! By the looks of the condition that Xavier is in – Harlow is going to have to fight this battle on her own! Jake Smith is trying to crawl away, but Harlow swarms him again! Harlow with a knee to the side of the ribs of the PURE Champion! A second knee! Oh my! Harlow follows those with a swinging forearm to the jaw! I don’t believe I have ever seen this kind of aggression out of Harlow Reichert! Harlow forces Jake Smith back to his feet and rolls him back into the ring! Harlow looking back at Xavier, the concern on her face is obvious, but she has a job to finish!
Gavin Kirkland: I’m coming, Thicclow!
Eve: Sit down, Gavin.
Deadprez: Harlow slides back into the ring as Jake tries to roll away, but Harlow has no intentions of letting him go anywhere! Harlow stalks from the corner as Jake Smith slowly pulls himself back to his feet! She may be about to put her knee through the head of the PURE Champion! HERE WE GO! JAKE IS UP! LES MISERABLES –
Eve: LIGHT’S OUT!! HARLOW SHOT FORWARD STRAIGHT INTO THAT SUPERKICK FROM ALEXIS CHAMBERS!! HARLOW’S LEGS FALL OUT FROM UNDER HER AS ALEXIS COVERS!
ONE!!!!!!… TWO!!!!!!… KICKOUT!!!!!
Deadprez: Harlow gets the shoulder up!
Eve: Alexis screaming at the referee as Jake calms her down! Jake knows the control that the two of them have now! Xavier Williams has been taken out right beside us so Harlow Reichert is now all on her own! Jake tells Alexis to drag Harlow back up to her knees and Alexis holds Harlow’s arms behind her back! Look! Jake Smith has that kendo stick in hand! Harlow trying to fight free – BUT JAKE SMITH FIRES AWAY WITH REPEATED SHOTS TO THE MIDSECTION OF HARLOW REICHERT! COME ON! SHE CAN’T DEFEND HERSELF!

ALEXIS CHAMBERS GOT ALL OF IT!! HARLOW IS DOWN AS ALEXIS CHAMBERS SHOOTS ONTO THE COVER!!!
ONE!!!!.. TWO!!!!… KICKOUT!!!!
Eve: It’s still not enough! Harlow kicks out again! Alexis is in absolute shock! Jake Smith shaking his head, but this just gives the man reason to do more!

Back elbow from Harlow! She knows that she has to fight back in any way she can! Jake Smith grabs at his nose as he stumbles back! Look!

ALEXIS DRIVEN BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!!
Deadprez: SUPERKICK! SUPERKICK FROM JAKE SMITH TO HARLOW REICHERT! HARLOW FALLS BACK INTO THE ROPES – AND FIRES BACK WITH A ROLLING ELBOW! THE IMPACT ALMOST KNOCKING THE TEETH OF THE PURE CHAMPION DOWN HIS THROAT! HARLOW PULLS THE CHAMPION IN! HARLOW HOOKS THE INSIDE LEG AND POWERS JAKE SMITH UP!!! FATE’S END!!!!!

Xavier grabs Jake Smith by the arm and begins to drag him up the ramp and up onto the stage! Xavier is looking for payback in its purest form!
Eve: Xavier has said that he’s no longer the man that he used to be, but that look in his eyes tells me another story! Xavier has done as heinous things in the past; snapped arms, ended careers…

JAKE ALMOST INSTINCTIVELY PUSHING HIMSELF BACK UP- NO!! NO, NO NO!! XAVIER WILLIAMS JUST SENT JAKE SMITH OFF THE STAGE WITH A SHOTGUN DROPKICK!!! JAKE PLUMMETS DOWN THROUGH BOTH TABLES BELOW!!! XAVIER STANDS ON THE EDGE OF THE STAGE LOOKING DOWN AT THE FALLEN PURE CHAMPION AS HARLOW HAS MADE HER WAY BACK TO HER FEET AND WATCHES FROM THE STAGE!!!

IT’S THAT CHAMBERS FAMILY PTSD INVOKER!!! THAT BARBED WIRE BASEBALL BAT!!! HARLOW TURNS BACK TOWARDS ALEXIS AS ALEXIS STANDS READY!!! JAKE HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT, BUT ALEXIS HAS THAT EQUALIZER IN HAND!!!
Eve: Harlow doing the smart thing and gets out of the ring as Xavier meets her at ringside. Jake has been taken out and Alexis stands alone, but whoever gets back into that ring has that invoker waiting for them! Wait… what’s Xavier Williams doing? Xavier is looking under the ring… Oh. My. God. Xavier Williams has that railroad spike! That’s the weapon that signified everything that Xavier Williams used to be. That’s the weapon that signified everything that Xavier Williams said he once hated about himself! Xavier staring at that railroad spike almost like he’s in a trance… Harlow is trying to talk Xavier down, but Xavier just begins to make his way up the steel steps and onto the apron! Alexis Chambers knows what Xavier has down with that weapon in the past.
Gavin Kirkland: If she’s going to swing that invoker she better hope she doesn’t miss…
Eve: Xavier just staring a hole through Alexis as he gets back into the ring! Alexis is almost frozen in fear! Xavier wiping the blood away from his face as ALEXIS CHARGES AND SWINGS!! SHE MISSES!!

XAVIER WILLIAMS STILL HAS THAT RAILROAD SPIKE IN HAND!!! HARLOW SHOOTS BACK INTO THE RING AND GETS BETWEEN XAVIER AND ALEXIS!!!

Eve: Harlow is almost pleading with Xavier. If Xavier does this there’s no going back! Xavier looking at Harlow and then down at that railroad spike… Xavier clenching both fists and… and he drops it. Harlow is able to get through to her mentor – BEFORE XAVIER PUSHES PAST HARLOW AND HITS THE ROPES!!! WIDOWMAKER!!! THAT VICIOUS KNEE STRIKE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF ALEXIS CHAMBERS!!! IN AN INSTANT IT’S LIKE XAVIER HAS SNAPPED OUT OF THAT TRANCE HE WAS IN AS HE SLIDES BACK INTO THE CORNER AND SITS THERE! XAVIER LOOKING AT BOTH OF HIS BLOODSTAINED HANDS AS HARLOW JUST WATCHES!!! ALEXIS CHAMBERS IS OUT ON THE CANVAS AS HARLOW DROPS DOWN ALMOST MERCIFULLY!!! THE COVER!!!
ONE!!!!… TWO!!!!…. THREE!!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Eye of the Tiger” by New Found Glory hits as Harlow Reichert sits in the middle of the ring looking at Xavier who still sits in the corner looking at both of his hands. There’s no celebration between either of them.)
Gina Romano: The winner of this match… XAVIER WILLIAMS AND HARLOW REICHERT!!!
(Xavier pulls himself out of the ring and begins to make his leave on his own as Harlow pushes herself back to her feet and the referee raises her arm.)
Eve: I have no idea about what we’ve just seen, guys.
Deadprez: There’s no pride on the face of Xavier Williams after what we just watched. The man has professed that he isn’t the man that he used to be, but actions are louder than words. We’ll have an update on the condition of Jake Smith and what’s going to happen with the PURE Championship match later tonight. But, that was an absolute war between the two teams.
Eve: There’s no doubt that we’re going to be looking for answers on Showdown, but both Harlow Reichert and Xavier Williams have beaten the PURE Champion and Alexis Chambers. Wow.
(Xavier stands on the stage looking back over his shoulder back at Harlow. He shakes and drops his head as he makes his leave before making his leave and the camera cuts elsewhere.)
(Odyssey returns from commercial break with Alexis Chambers dragging Jake Smith onto a chair in the locker room. Jake is a bit heavier than what Alexis anticipated, so there’s a show of struggling with placing Jake into a chair, but she eventually manages to do that. From the looks of things, Jake is sore as hell from the Tornado Tag Team Match. The match did not pan in his or Alexis’ favor, but they can’t be phased too long about it. Jake is scheduled for ANOTHER match later tonight. He won’t be going into the match at one hundred percent, but he is going to do everything in his power not to show his pain.)
Alexis Chambers: Let’s establish that the outcome of the match did not go in our favor and I feel pretty guilty about that, Jake. I really felt like I let you down out there.
(Jake Smith forms a small smirk at the corner of his lip.)
Jake Smith: You didn’t let me down there, Alexis.
(Jake Smith puts a strand of her hair behind her ear as Alexis Chambers tries to hide her smile.)
Jake Smith: You could never let me down.
Alexis Chambers: :usure:
Jake Smith: Yes, damn. Look, I’m aware that match didn’t go in our favor, but I never even wanted to be part of another match for Odyssey. In a way, my focus wasn’t really towards the match. It was on the PURE Championship match. The doctors and trainers medically cleared me to compete later tonight and the most important thing to happen at Odyssey is for us to make sure that the PURE Championship remains in our clutches. It doesn’t matter that we lost the match. Would it have been nice for me to get momentum before my triple threat match? Would it have been nice for you to get some momentum for your No Way Out Match at Fighting Spirit? Of course, but what just happened moments ago will not be a determining factor of how the rest of the night goes for us. At the end of the day…
(Jake Smith holds up the PURE Championship up for Alexis Chambers to look at.)
Jake Smith: I’m still the PURE Champion. It’s not really something I am going to be bummed about. If anything counts, I think you did an amazing job with holding our little team together this week.
Alexis Chambers: You really think so?
Jake Smith: Of course. Take this loss as a learning experience, Alexis. It happens to the best of us. For all the losses that you’ve suffered, you still remain relevant on Showdown. Not because you’re associated with me of course, but because you’re a lot better looking than Terry Chambers.
Alexis Chambers: You really think so? 😳
(Jake Smith scratches the back of his neck in nervousness.)
Jake Smith: Uh yeah… but, that’s not the focus of this situation, Alexis. The situation is that we lost just moments ago. Harlow and Xavier can basque in their little celebration and gloat about their victory, but we got bigger things on your mind. You’re going to win at Fighting Spirit and I’m going to walk into Pain for Pride as PURE Champion. We’re going to leave Pain for Pride as champions and be the most powerful duo that this company has ever seen. Just think about it, Alexis. You manage to defeat Minerva or Kasey Kaos at Pain for Pride and get the title reign that your brother dreamed of having when he defeated Drake King the year before. Hell, you’re already better than him.
Alexis Chambers: Nothing should be distracting us from securing our matches at Pain for Pride. You retain tonight. I win at Fighting Spirit and nothing can touch us.
Jake Smith: No man or woman.
Alexis Chambers: Or doctors. :mjgrin:
Jake Smith: Really funny, Alexis.
Alexis Chambers: I mean it, Jake. Nothing should be distracting us.
Jake Smith: You mean that I shouldn’t want the footage of the two of you wrestling in jello again?
(Alexis Chambers rolls her eyes.)
Alexis Chambers: I told you to stop watching that.
Jake Smith: I can’t help it. I’m a man and I have my needs. By the way, I need to talk about the triple threat.
Alexis Chambers: Okay, what did you have in mind?
(Jake Smith places his arm around Alexis Chambers’ shoulders as he begins to explain his plan. It fades back to ringside.)
Gina Romano: The following contest at Odyssey is a TRIPLE THREAT for a UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY and it is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, from Kingston Upon Thames, England! Weighing in at 200 pounds! Here is PRINCE DRAY FONTANA!!!!!
(The lights go out in the arena. ‘Pure Water’ by Skepta hits the speakers. A flashing white light flicker in the arena until it turns back to black. The titantron reads ‘UNRULY X UNRIVALLED’ and a spotlight flashes down, Dray Fontana is in it with his eyes closed and his fingers in his ears, looking around at the emptiness of the arena.)
Deadprez: Triple threat time and the winner receives a Unique Opportunity between three of the Yong Lions on the Showdown brands and it is going to be a humdinger, dawg! Prince Dray Fontana on the way out first to the ring and if you look up mean and ugly in the dictionary, this guy’s face is all over it.
Eve: He is but that is what makes The Prince such a special athlete, he toughness, demeanor and brutality with his wrestling, this man can hit you with a plethora of holds and then break your bones at the same time, laughing about it the whole time.
Gavin Kirkland: Only a face a mother could love, that is for sure, he probably doesn’t get a lot of dates, but he is a Prince, he is royalty and we need to just all bow to Dray!
(Prince Dray Fontana marches down to the ring. He gets up on the apron and raises his hands in the air before entering the ring. As he enters the ring, he gets to the middle of it and gets onto his knees and a spotlight shines down on him, he slams the mat three times and jumps up to his feet and points a finger gun at the stands. As his music starts to fade it is replaced by ‘Black Honey’ which starts to play throughout the arena as MITSUBACHI slowly walks out. He looks at the ring, lowers his head and stands there in silent for a moment.)
Gina Romano: The next participant, he hails from Saitama, Japan! Weighing in at 187 pounds! “THE SILENT ANIMAL! MITSUBACHI!!!!
(After hearing is name, MITSUBACHI opens his eyes and nods, making his way down, not paying attention to the empty arena around him, he slides in, sitting in the corner staring right at Dray Fontana who looks ready to fight now and not wait for the third participant.)
Eve: You want to talk about dangerous and skilled men, MITSUBACHI is another one, we have seen him have some great matches against top stars in the EAW since arriving and in my opinion this man is the dark horse of this match, I look for him to use that to his advantage.
Deadprez: I agree Eve, this guy has talent all over him and that’s the thing about Odyssey tonight, you have the Showdown roster on display tonight and many of them are getting some pretty big chances at the doorstep of Pain For Pride, this Unique Opportunity can change the career to any of these three men.
Gavin Kirkland: He is about as entertaining as a wet noodle. The guy calls himself after a Honeybee, well there is a Murder Hornet staring right at him across the ring, right now.
(MITSUBACHI and Dray Fontana keep staring at one another as “Black Honey” dies down and is replaced with ‘Nightcrawler’ by Travis Scott ft. Swae Lee & Chief Keef. Bronson Daniels slowly comes out on stage. He starts Toosie or Broosie Sliding, air high fiving no one pretending there are fans there or maybe he is so high he thinks there are people there, with Bronson you never know but this is his BROdessey so chances are he is. He goes to light up a blunt, but one official stops him and takes it from the Bro, he looks sad, frowning but shrugs his shoulders and heads to the ring…)
Gina Romano: The final participant! He hails from Cocoa Beach, Florida! Weighing in at 216 pounds! He is the “EUPHORIC MACHINE” and “THE SKINNY DIPPER OF POT SMOKING”! BRONSON DANIELS!!!
(As the second hook to the song hits, Bronson hops over the top rope once he jumped on the apron and climbs the ropes, looking out at the empty arena but acting like it is full to capacity. He goes over and tries to pump fist Prince Fontana who slaps the hand away from him, he shrugs his shoulders, then walks over to MITSUBACHI for a fist pump which he does indeed get one bringing a smile to his face.)
Deadprez: Bronson is high as a kite, playa.
Eve: He maybe but like a functioning alcoholic, this man can wrestle anyway he wants to come down to the ring as. Bronson has shown just how deadly he is with his feet and how agile and dangerous he is with his technical and MMA fighting skills. All three men are the future of the Brand and all want to have something special, a Unique Opportunity at Pain For Pride or even before.
Gavin Kirkland: It is a BROdyssey here tonight and we are all about to witness it. These two, Bronson and MITSUBACHI were measured up against my Goth Gypsy Queen two weeks in a row, they showed just how far they can hang, as for the Prince, he is the guy at the bar who tries to talk to your girl, she slaps him because he is so damn ugly and then you have to fight him, he beats your ass and then your girl leaves you for being a pussy. There is no win when it comes to Dray!
Eve: That was a terrifying analogy.
Gavin Kirkland: It is, but true!
(The referee checks all three men, make sure they are all ready to begin this ultimate opportunity match, before he nods and calls for the bell and match to start….)
(DING!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!)
(All three men walk out of their corner, Bronson does the Futsal (Brosal) Shuffle, Dray doesn’t seem too impressed by his lackadaisical attitude, MITSUBACHI is silent, staring at both opponents, as Bronson smiles, nudging both men to Shuffle with him. MITSUBACHI slowly starts to do it, Dray smiles and agrees and as he starts, he wallops Bronson with a European Forearm knocking him to the mats.)
Deadprez: The Prince with the first strike taking the Bro down with a huge European Uppercut! He hits one on MITSUBACHI! The Silent Animal strikes back with a vicious chop! Dray with another European Forearm! MITSUBACHI with a thunderous chop! Back and forth these two men go! MITSUBACHI gets the advantage, whipping Dray into the ropes, NO! Dray reverses, he goes for a back body drop, MITSUBACHI lands on his feet! BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX ON DRAY FONTANA! HE ROLLS OUT OF THE RNG QUICK! There are no count outs or disqualifications in a triple threat, they must fight to the finish! MITSUBACHI is planning something, he runs against the opposite ropes for a suicide dive, NO! Bronson is there with a huge knee stopping MITSUBACHI in his tracks!
Eve: He stunned him, Bronson needs to take advantage while Dray is on the outside and make quick of this match! T-Bone Suplex on MITSUBACHI! Crawling to the corner, Bronson is backing up, he sees his target, runs for another knee, MITSUBACHI GETS THE FOOT UP! BRONSON STOPS JUST IN TIME, HE GRABS IT! DRAGS MITSUBACHI OUT OF THE CORNER, SNAPMARE ON THE LEG! WAIT! JUST AS BRONSON GETS UP HE IS TACKLED DOWN BY A RETURNING DRAY FONTANA! SHE STARTS PUCNHING BRONSON UNRELENTLESSLY! THE BRO IS TRING TO COVER UP!
Gavin Kirkland: DRAY IS TRYING TO MAKE BROINSON AS UGLY AS HIM! THE PRINCE WANTS NO PRETTY FACES IN THE SHOWDOWN BRAND! THE BRO IS GETTING MUGGED HERE! DRAY WANTS HIS STASH! WAIT… MITSUBACHI WITH A SHINING WIZARD TO THE BACK OF FONTANA’S HEAD! WE COULD HAVE AN EARLY FINISH! HE ISNOT TRYING TO GET THE COVER! MITSUBACHI PICKS UP DRAY, LOOKS BEHIND HIM WHERE BRONSON IS… SCOOP POWERSLAM ON BRONSON WITH DRAY IN TOW! THEY JUST CHRUSED BRONSON AND NOW MITSUBACHI GETTING THE EARLY PIN FALL!
Deadprez: BRONSON SLIDES OUT OF THE PIN! DRAY KICKS OUT! THAT COUILD HAVE BEEN IT FOR THIS MATCH BUT THESE THREE ARE ALREADY HITTING IT HARD WITH ONE ANOTHER! MITSU is climbing to the second rope, he is waiting for Bronson and Dray to get up! Now he is stepping on the top rope! MITSUBACHI perched up high, DRAY FALLS INTO THE ROPES! MITSUBACHI LOSES BALANCE AND FALLS RIGHT ON HIS GROIN!
Gavin Kirkland: AAAAH! Even that makes me hurt!
Eve: I’ll pretend to know what you two are talking about. Dray sees MITSUBACHI siting on the turnbuckle, he is now climbing to the second rope, hooks MITSUBACHI for a superplex… HERE COMES BRONSON DANIELS! HE GETS UNDER THE LEGS OF DRAY FONTANA…. BRONSON WITH A HUGE POWERBOMB BUT THE MOMENTUM TAKES MITSUBACHI OVER IN THE SUPERPLEX! BRONSON FOLDS DRAY OVER FOR THE COVER!
Deadprez: DRAY FONTANA KICKS OUT! LOOK HOW QUICK BRONSON PICKS HIM UP BY THE ARM! HOLDING HANDS BEFORE A KNEE STRIKE! STUNS DRAY, RIGHT INTO A DEADLIFT GUTWRENCH! BRONSON IS DOING THE BROSAL SHUFFLE AGAIN!
Gavin Kirkland: THE GUY HAS MOVES LIKE JAGGER! WAIT…. MITSUBACHI BEHIND BRONSON! HE IS MOVING TO THE DANCE MOVES OF BRONSON WHO TURNS AROUND AND SMILES! HE WANTS A FIST PUMP! MITSUBACHI GOES… NO A KICK TO THE MIDSECTION FOLLOWED BY A FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX! HE HAS HIM HOOKED FOR THE COVER!!!
Eve: BRONSON KICKS OUT! LOOK HOW FAST MISTUBACHI IS! PICKING HIM UP! QUICKLY CHOPS TO THE SIDE OIF THE NECK! BRONSON IS STUNNED, MITSUBACHI AGAINST THE ROPES, RUNNING DROPKICK! HE SNAPPED BRONSON’S HEAD BACK! THE BRO IS DOWN! MISTUBACHI SIGANSL THE ELBOW! RUNNING AGAUINST THE ROPES…. DRAY FONTANA HOLDS THEM DOWN! MITSUBACHI CRASHES ON THE FLOOR HARD! DRAY DROPS DOWN TO THE FLOOR, HE GRABS MITSUBACHI AND THROWS HIM OVER THE GUARDRAIL ON TO THE EMPTY SEATS! DRAY HOPS OVER, HE GRABS A CHAIR, NOT EVEN FOLDING IT AND THROWS IT AT MITSUBACHI! HE GRABS ANOTHER AND DOES IT AGAIN!
Deadprez: Now we are seeing what we talked about the Prince, the ferocious nature and he is looking to take out MITSUBACHI now and eliminate part of the equation! Remember, this is for a Unique Opportunity AND because of Triple Threat rules, NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! What is Dray doing!? What is Dray doing!?
Gavin Kirkland: He has taken off the safety top of the guardrail! The padding is off and that is pure steel! He is looking to crush MITSUBACHI’S LARYNX! HE LIFTS THE SILENT ANIMAL….. NO! BRONSON DANIELS HOPPED OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE FLOOR AND LEAPED WITH A FOREAM! DRAY DROPS MITSUBACHI! HE STILL LANDS HARD ON THE ROW OF CHAIRS! BRONSON WITH SOME ELBOW STRIKES! GRABBING DRAY BY THE HAIR AND FLIPPING HIM OVER THE RAILING! BRONSON HOPS ON THE TOP AND COMES DOWN WITH A KNEE STRKE! HE FLUSH CAUGHT DRAY IN THE FACE!
Deadprez: BRONSON IS POINTING TO THE TIMEKEEPER’S TABLE! THERE ARE NO COUNTOUTS AND THE REFEREE IS YELLING FOR BOTH COMPETITORS TO GET IN THE RING! BRONSON WHIPS DRAY BUT THE PRINCES REVERSES AND BRONSON CRASHES INTO THE RAIL! DRAY RUNS AT HIM CRUSHING HIS HAED WITH A VICIOUS KNEE INTO THE RAIL! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING!?
Eve: OH MY GOD….
Gavin Kirkland HOLY SHI….
(Dray rips the guardrail down, he grabs Bronson by the bare foot and drags him to the ring bell, Dray grabs the ring bell gong.)
Eve: DRAY JUST DROVE THE RING BELL GONG ON BRONSON’S ANKLE! THE SAME TOOL USED TO RING THE BELL! HIS FOOT PRESSED AGAINST THE BELL!
Gavin Kirkland: HE IS LITERALLY TRYING TO BLUDGEON HIS FOOT OFF HIS LEG!!!!
Deadprez: DRAY FONTANA THINKS HE IS A BLACKSMITH WITH BRONSON’S ANKLE! LISTEN TO THE BRO SCREAM IN PAIN MY GAWD!
(Dray finally throws the ring bell gong down; Bronson is rolling on the floor holding his ankle when Dray grabs his foot and starts gnawing on his toes!)
Gavin Kirkland: I THINK I AM GOING TO THROW UP!
Eve: DRAY FONTANA IS TRYING TO CHEW BRONSON’S TOES OFF! THE PRINCE HAS LOST IT! HE IS A CANNIBAL! SOMEBODY STOP THIS!
Deadprez: NOW HE IS TRYING TO BREAK THEM! I DIDN’T KNOW TOES COULD SEPARATE LIKE THAT! WE NEED HELP OUT HERE! BRONSON’S ANKLE COULD BE BROKEN! WE …
(Suddenly MITSUBACHI leaps into the picture with a huge tackle on Dray Fontana! Bronson is on the mats rolling around holding his foot in pain as MIYSUBACHI starts pounding away on Dray.)
Eve: MITSUBACHI IS HERE! HE IS UNLOADING ON FONTANA! PICKING HIM UP AND THROWING THE PRINCE RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS! HE FLIPS OVER AND MITSUBACHI LOOKS LIKE A POSSESSED MAN! DRAY IS TRYING TO GET UP BUT THE SILENT ANIMAL HITS A MAFIA KICK! DRAY IS DOWN! MITSUBACHI LIFTS AND ROLLS HIM RIGHT INTO THE RING! MITSUBACHI STANDS ON THE APRON….. ROLLING SENTON ON DRAY FONTANA HOOKING THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Deadprez: DRAY KICKS OUT! MISTUBACHI LOOKS AT THE REFEREE HOLDIN A TWO COUNT! HE WAITS UNTIL DRAY GETS UP, WE SEE MEDICAL ATTENTION TO BRONSON DANIELS NOW, HE SEEMS TO BE HURT AND OUT OF THIS MATCH, THE ANKLE COULD BE BROKEN, HE IS SCREAMING IN PAIN!
Gavin Kirkland: You never want to see a wrestler get hurt like this but we said that Prince Dray Fontana is an animal, he is a monster that I provoked, like a bear he’ll maul you and Bronson found that out. Inside the ring though MITSUBACHI waits, Dray gets to his feet, MITSUBACHI HOISTS HIM OVER THE SHOULDER! HE IS GOING TO HIT THE GO2SLEEP! THIS IS IT!
Eve: DRAY FONTANA IS HAMMERING MITSUBACHI ON THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WITH STIFF ELBOWS! HE DROPS THE PRINCE! LANDING ON HIS FEET! DISCUS LARIAT BY THE PRINCE! HE TAKES MITSUBACHI DOWN! HE IS WASTING NO TIME AT ALL! MITSUBACHI SLOWLY GETTING UP…. THE PARAMOUNT! THE V TRIGGER CONNECTS ON MITSUBACHI! DRAY FONTANA FOR THE COVER!
Deadprez: MITSUBACHI KICKS OUT MY GAWD!!!! DRAY FONTANA IS IN SHOCK! THE OFFICIALS ARE STARTING TO HELP BRONSON TO THE BACK, HE CAN’T PUT ANY PRESSURE ON THAT LEG! SUCH A SHAME, DRAY SEES THAT…. LOOK AT HIM! LOOK AT HIM! THE FACE! HE IS LAUGHING AT BRONSON! WHAT IS DRAY DOING AGAIN! HE IS PICKING UP MITSUBACHI!
(Dray points at Bronson Daniels…)
Dray: HEY WANKER! THIS IS FOR YOU BITCH!
(Bronson stops, the officials trying to take him to the back…)
Eve: HE HAS MITSUBACHI! HE HOOKS THE ANKLE LOCK! MITSUBACHI SCREAMS IN PAIN! HE IS TRYING TO GET TO THE ROPES! BRONSON IS TRYING TO FIGHT BACK THE OFFICALS BUT THEY ARE HOLDING HIM BACK! DRAY IS LAUGHING…..
(Bronson breaks free and slides into the ring one legged!)
Gavin Kirkland: BRONSON SLIDES IN! HE IS CRAZY! DRAY LETS GO OF THE ANKLE LOCK AND STARTS STOMPING ON DANIELS! HE ISN’T LETTING HIM GET BACK INTO THIS MATCH! DRAY IS NO TRYING TO GRAB THE BAD ANKLE! HE IS GOING FOR THE ANKLE LOCK…. NO!!!! MITSUBACHI WITH THE HESITATION DROPKICK ON DRAY FONTANA! HE IS DOWN AS MITSUBACHI DROPS FOR THE QUICK COVER!
Deadprez: BRONSON DANIELS BROKE UP THE COUNT! THE REFEREE SIGNALS TWO AND BACIALLY 9/10ths! THE MATCH STILL GOES ON AND BRONSON CAN BARELY STAND. MITSUBACHI STANDS UP AND LOOKS AT HIM, HE SHAKES HIS HEAD AND OPENS THE ROPES FOR BRONSON! HE IS TELLING HIM TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY! WHAT AN HONORABLE GESTURE!
Gavin Kirkland: KICK HIM IN THE DICK BRONSON!
Eve: REALLY!? HE KNOWS BRONSON IS HURT, HE IS GIVING HIM A WAY OUT BUT DANIELS HOPPING ON ONE LEG IS SAYING “NO”, HE WANTS TO COMPETE, HE DOESN’T CARE HOW HURT HE IS.!
(MITSUBACHI nods, getting off the ropes and bowing to Bronson.)
Deadprez: This is what I am talking about! The respect these athletes have and… MITSUBACHI WITH A HUGE CROOKED ARM LARIAT ON BRONSON! HE WANTED TO FIGHT SO HE LET HIM! THE JAPANESE STAR IS NOW CLIMBING TO THE TOP ROPE! MITSUBACHI IS GOING TO END THIS…. WITH KNIVES OUT! HE JUMPS AND NO!!!! BRONSON DANIELS MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, DRAY IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET, HE GRABS MITSUBACHI BUT HE HITS A BACK ELBOW! DRAY STUMBLES BACK! MITSUBACHI TURNS RIGHT INTO GUNSMOKE!!!!!! THE SPEAR TAKES DOWN MITSUBACHI BY THE ONE-LEGGED BRONSON! DRAY GRABS HIM BY THE LEG, BRONSON WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!! DRAY FALLS TO THE MATS! BRONSON DANIELS DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER ON DRAY!
Eve: MITSUBACHI DRAGS BRONSON OFF DRAY AND LOCKS ON THE ANKLE LOCK! BRONSON SCREAMS IN PAIN! HE IS READY TO TAP OUT!!! HIS ARM IS RAISED!!! TAP OUT BRONSON! FIGHT ANOTHER DAY DAMN IT!!!
Deadprez: TAP OUT! TAP OUT! REFEREE STOP THIS MATCH!
Gavin Kirkland: MITSUBACHI HAS IT LOCKED IN! HE IS REDT TO TAP!!!!
(Bronson raises his hand up ion the air screaming in pain, it slowly starts to come down…)
Deadprez: UXU!!!! DISASTER KICK BY DRAY FONTANA ON MITSUBACHI! HE DIDN’T EVEN SEE IT COMING! MITSUBACHI DROPS LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES! DRAY NOW PICKS UP BRONSON! HE HOOKS HIM FOR THE FONTANA 97! THE DESTINO! HE FLIPS OVER BRONSON BUT NO! ON ONE LEG BRONSON STOPS HIM IN MID SPIN OVER HIS SHOULDER! BRONSON TWISTS HITTING THE NIGHT NIGHT!
Eve: “ON ONE LEG! ON ONE LEG! MITSUBACHI IS BACK UP! BRONSON TURN AROUND!
(Bronson turns, MITSUBACHI kicks him in the gut, he buckles over….)
Gavin Kirkland: THIS IS IT! MITSUBACHI GOING AGAIN FOR THE GO2SLEEP! NO!!! BRONSON SQUIRMS! LANDS ON HIS GOOD LEG FROM BEHIND…. BITCH I KNOCKED YOUR HEAD OFF!!!!
Deadprez: MITSUBACHI CRUMBLES, ROLLING TO HIS BACK! BRONSON FALLS ON TOP OF HIM FOR THE COVER! DRAY IS GETTING BACK UP!!!
DRAY DIVES TO BREAK IT UP!!!!
DRAY IS TOO LATE!!!!
(DING!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THE ULTIMATE OPPORTUNITY MATCH! BRONSON DANIELS!!!!!!!!!!
(‘Nightcrawler’ by Travis Scott ft. Swae Lee & Chief Keef as Bronson rolls off MITSUBACHI holding his ankle in pain as Dray Fontana slams the mat in anger. MITSUBACHI slowly stirs holding his head as all three men left it in the ring.)
Eve: BRONSON DANIELS DID IT! He was hurt, on one leg but he had enough to strike MITSUBACHI with that vicious elbow and take him down for the three count! Dray was down long enough but he almost made the save and now we see none other than Bronson Daniels with a Unique Opportunity! Here are the medical officials checking him out, the referee raising his hand, point at Bronson.
Deadprez: All three of these men came to fight, they came to take it all and wanted that opportunity! This is the future of the Showdown brand and the EAW! Give your hats off to MITSUBACHI, Dray Fontana who we say a monstrous mean streak come out and finally the winner who will not be able to shuffle much tonight, Bronson Daniels.
Gavin Kirkland: He tries to eat his toes Prez.
Deadprez: Don’t remind me dawg, we’ll be right back.
(Bronson is being helped to his feet; he smirks while wincing in pain with his arms raised. Dray is outside the ring backing up the ramp staring daggers into Bronson as MITSUBACHI leans against the ropes in disappointment, holding his head, watching Bronson celebrate.)
(Odyssey fades to commercial break.)
(When Odyssey returns, Gavin is heard speaking in the background.)
Gavin Kirkland: We began the show with an excellent Tornado Tag Team Match and we had a fantastic triple threat featuring three of Showdown’s rising stars? What’s next?
(“Awaken” by Dethklok hits as Ryan Wilson walks out to the stage with a shit eating grin on his face. He scans the empty arena before strutting his way down to the ring.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A HARDCORE MATCH! SET FOR ONE FALL!! INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA…..WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDS…..RRRRRYYYAAAANNNN WWWWIILLLLSSSSOOONNNN!!!!!
Deadprez: There’s our boss, but for how long? His job is on the line tonight and we know that gives him extra motivation to make sure he comes out of this on the winning side. Shaker has been a thorn in his side for a long time now going back to the days when The Score broke up and their match at Pain For Pride. He doesn’t think Shaker fits his vision for Showdown and wants to get rid of him. He has that chance here tonight and I wouldn’t doubt him on that mission!
(“I Love It Loud” by KISS hits as Shaker Jones walks out onto the stage followed by BVU members Asson, Ty, and Detective Biggums. Biggums is trying his best to pump up Shaker as they all make the way down to the ring.)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT…..FROM INGLIS, MANITOBA, CANADA….WEIGHING IN AT 238 POUNDS…..ACCOMPANIES BY THE BOZOS VICTIMS UNIT……SSSSHHHHHHAAAKKKKKEEERRRRR JJJJOOONNNNEESSSSSS!!!!!
Eve: This man has been waiting for this match for quite some time, he’s been wanting to finally get his hands on Ryan Wilson. Not only that, but he has a chance to free Showdown from his grasp and take the power away from him. And with the BVU by his side, I’m sure he has drawn up a game plan to get it done tonight and finally get the victory over Ryan Wilson!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: HERE WE GO! And what the…..
(Shaker is ready to get started as Ryan looks back at him and the BVU on the outside. He exits the ring and walks and demands a microphone.)
Ryan Wilson: How stupid do you think I am?!
BVU Members: Come on now!
Ryan Wilson: My JOB is on the line here, you don’t think I know what you guys are up to?! You guys are gonna screw me to make sure I am no longer GM! You know Shaker isn’t talented enough to beat me on his own! Well guess what….he’s gotta! Because as Showdown General Manager and ALL your bosses…..BVU……you are hereby BANNED FROM RINGSIDE!!!
(The BVU are going crazy not believing what they heard. Assidy and Ty are arguing as they make their way up the ramp, but Biggums hasn’t moved.)
Ryan Wilson: You heard me you buffoon! Get to the back now! DO YOU UNDERSTAND ENGLI–
Eve: WOAH BIGGUMS JUST TOOK DOWN RYAN WITH A HUGE BIG BOOT! Biggums begins exiting the arena along with the other BVU members but I think Shaker just got a bit of an advantage there!
Deadprez: Shaker is all on his own now and now he steps outside the ring and walks over to Ryan who’s trying to shake the cobwebs out from that big boot he just took from Biggums! Shaker picks up Ryan Wilson and drives his head right onto the barricade! Shaker after that then picks up Ryan and tosses him stomach first onto the barricade Ryan slips forward and now he’s in the empty crowd area. Shaker reaches over the barricade and grabs Ryan by his orange hair, but RYAN WITH A CHAIR FROM THE CROWD SMACKS SHAKER RIGHT ACROSS THE SKULL WITH IT!
Eve: Shaker is down on the mat holding his forehead in some pain. Ryan Wilson has a smile on his face as he stands on top of the barricade with the chair he used to hit Shaker with, ELBOW DROP USING THE CHAIR TO HIS ADVANTAGE ON SHAKER FROM THE BARRICADE! Ryan Wilson….slams the chair into the back of Shaker! Again! And AGAIN!! Ryan is having fun right now dissecting Shaker, you can see the indent marks on the chair! Ryan Wilson picks up Shaker Jones and places him against the barricade, a vicious right hand from Ryan Wilson! Ryan Wilson throws another hard right! Ryan now rains down several shots to the skull of Shaker! Ryan grabs Shaker by the head now….
Ryan Wilson(no mic): YOU DON’T BELONG ON MY SHOW! SINCE YOU WON’T LISTEN, I’LL HAVE TO FORCE THE ISSUE!
Deadprez: The fuck does he mean by that?! OH NO! Ryan wraps that chair around Shaker’s head! Ryan lines up with the ring post, he’s gonna try to perhaps end Shaker’s career right here, right now! Shaker is fighting for his life refusing to let it happen though! Shaker out of pure fear and anger picks up Ryan and drives him into the ring post! Shaker grabs Ryan by his head and slams him by the back of the head into the ring post! Concussion city right there folks! Shaker throws Ryan to the side while he grabs a quick breather, Shaker runs at Ryan who’s balancing himself near the timekeeper’s arena–BUT RYAN SMASHES SHAKER UPSIDE THE HEAD WITH THE RING BELL! Ryan raises his eyebrow as he walks over to Shaker with the ring bell–
Gavin Kirkland: Ryan puts Shaker in a headlock and…OH MY GOD! RYAN USES THE SHARP CORNER OF THE RING BELL AND IS JAMMING IT INTO THE FACE OF SHAKER! GOOD GOD! SHAKER IS SCREAMING IN PAIN! After several seconds Ryan Wilson finally lets go! Ryan has a smile on his face as he still holds onto the ring bell, he turns around and OH JESUS! RYAN SPIKES THE RING BELL AS HARD AS HE CAN DOWN AT SHAKER AND IT HITS SHAKER RIGHT UPSIDE THE HEAD! Ryan seems so proud of himself for the damage he’s inflicted on Shaker so far into this Hardcore match! Ryan drops down for the cover! Falls count anywhere in a Hardcore match!
Eve: Shaker kicks out and I think that’s exactly what Ryan Wilson wanted as he smiles and picks Shaker up and puts him in another headlock as he drags him to the other side of the ring! Ryan looks under the ring skirt for a weapon of some sort…but Shaker grabs Ryan from behind in a back suplex position and has him in the air! Shaker drops Ryan face first into the ring apron and Ryan’s face hits hard! OH MY GOD! RYAN IS BLEEDING FROM THE MOUTH! I THINK HE MAY HAVE KNOCKED A TOOTH LOOSE ON THE LANDING! RYAN IS LIKE A FISH OUT OF WATER ON THE OUTSIDE FLOOR NOW! It looks like it’s one of his front teeth on the upper left side! Shaker sees this and now he’s the one looking under the ring skirt for a weapon to use….OH NO!!
Deadprez: SHAKER JONES PULLS OUT A PAIR OF PLIERS!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: You don’t think…..no! Shaker Jones approaches Ryan and has him by the shoulders as Ryan is on both knees still in serious pain from his tooth! Shaker sticks the pliers in side the mouth of Ryan Wilson! JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! YOU GOTTA FEEL FOR RYAN HERE! SHAKER IS PLAYING DENTIST RIGHT NOW! HOLY SHIITTTT!!! SHAKER RIPS THE PLIERS OUT OF RYAN’S MOUTH!!!! :damn: :damn: :damn:
(The camera zooms in to see a close-up of the small tooth Shaker Jones pulled out of Ryan Wilson’s mouth with the pliers.)
Eve: FUCKING HELL!! Ryan Wilson is on the ground writhing in pain, and what’s this? A smile has come across the face of Shaker Jones now! This man I think has some evil intentions! Shaker Jones walks up the ramp and then to the side of the ramp and he is looking for something, and he grabs something as he begins making his way back to the ringside area at the bottom of the ramp….SHAKER HAS A SHOPPING CART! HUH?! What the hell does he think he can do with that?!
Deadprez: Ryan is seated against the steel steps, SHAKER RUNS WITH THE CART IN THE DIRECTION OF RYAN! HE’S GONNA USE THE SHOPPING CART AS A BATTERING RAM OF SORTS! BUT RYAN MOVES AND SHAKER AND THE CART COLLIDES WITH THE STEEL STEPS! NECKBREAKER FROM RYAN! Ryan is still oozing blood from his mouth as he competed in this match. Blood is dripping all over the floor….good thing they’re black I guess. Anyways, What is Ryan Wilson looking to do?! RYAN WILSON PICKS UP THE ENTIRE SHOPPING CART! OH NO!! RYAN WILSON DROPS THE SHOPPING CART ON THE GROUNDED SHAKER JONES!
Eve: BUT NO! SHAKER JONES BARELY AVOIDS DISASTER! A medal thud is heard from the shopping cart hitting the floor! Shaker is on a knee as if his life just flashed before his eyes! Ryan runs at Shaker but Shaker counters with a drop toe hold that drops Ryan right back down to the floor and Ryan hits the floor face first once more! Shaker looks down at the ground and picks up one of the TV wires! Shaker now begins to wrap the wire around the neck of Ryan Wilson! Shaker is choking the absolute life out of Ryan right now and Ryan’s face is turning purple! Ryan needs to find a way out of this–RYAN USES HIS FEET AND WALKS UP THE APRON AND CONNECTS WITH A SLICED BREAD TO SHAKER ON THE OUTSIDE! SMART ON THE SPOT THINKING THERE FROM OUR GENERAL MANAGER! RYAN PICKS UP SHAKER AND SETS HIM UP….FISHERMAN BUSTER RIGHT ON THE RAMP!! THE COVER!
Deadprez: Shaker kicks out once again! Ryan Wilson crawls around before eventually getting to his feet again. Ryan stomps repeatedly on Shaker Jones on the ground in an effort to try keeping Shaker down! Ryan Wilson now begins thinking on what to do next in this matchup in order to keep Shaker down…and Ryan goes underneath the ring again and OH SHIT! RYAN IS PULLING SOMETHING OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING! WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?!?! :lupe:
Gavin Kirkland: :OH FUCK!! A BED OF WOODEN NAILS ON A WOODEN PLANK! Ryan finally pulls it out and manages to stand it up! Ryan is balancing the nail bed on the ring apron on the outside against the ropes on the bottom of the ramp side. But from behind Shaker nails Ryan in the back! Ryan took a little too long to get the nail bed positioned and it gave Shaker enough to to recuperate. Shaker now throws several haymakers onto the back of Ryan Wilson chopping him down to the floor! Shaker once again picks up the cord he used to try strangling Ryan and he bends the cable…..SHAKER WHIPS THE CABLE AS HARD AS HE CAN AT THE BACK OF RYAN! RYAN SCREAMS IN AGONY! SHAKER WHIPS IT AGAIN! Ryan Wilson’s back has some serious red marks now as he is crawling up the ramp trying to get away from Shaker but Shaker follows and continues to swing that cable at the bare skin of Ryan Wilson!
Eve: Ryan kicks Shaker in his knee which causes Shaker to drop to a knee! Ryan crawls and pulls himself up with the shopping cart that was used earlier in this match! Ryan is up and has control of the cart, and RYAN RAMS THE CART INTO THE SHOULDER OF SHAKER JONES! Ryan lets go of the cart as he slowly walks around it to get to Shaker. Ryan Wilson picks up Shaker, BUT SHAKER HITS A LOW BLOW! RYAN’S STUNNED! Shaker while on one knee throws a hard uppercut to the throat of Ryan Wilson causing Ryan to stumble back and then to collapse to the ground! Not for long though as Ryan gets back to a vertical base holding his testicles….SHAKER….WHIPLASH!!!! THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL KNOCKS RYAN BACKWARDS AND RYAN FALLS INTO THE SHOPPING CART!! Ryan doesn’t have a damn clue where he is or even knows he’s sitting in a shopping cart!
Deadprez: They’re at the top of the stage. Shaker goes to the front of the cart and begins to wheel it around! Ryan Wilson is starting to come to and realize what’s happening, but he’s stick in the cart, there’s nothing he can do to escape at this moment. Shaker is enjoying this right now! SHAKER RUNS DOWN THE WITH RYAN IN THE CART AS FAST AS HE CAN….AND HE’S AIMING FOR THE NAIL BED STANDING UP AGAINST THE APRON!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: RYAN’S BEGGING FOR MERCY….BUT SHAKER FLIPS THE CART FORWARD AND RYAN GOES RIGHT INTO THE BED OF NAILS AT FULL SPEED!! HOLY HELL!!! Ryan starts to bleed from several areas on his body, and Shaker drops down for the cover!
Eve: DAMMIT! RYAN’S REIGN OR TERROR LIVES ON FOR AT LEAST RIGHT NOW AS HE GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Gotta give credit, I have no idea how he did it. Shaker Jones now picks up the body of Ryan Wilson and throws him inside the ring but Shaker doesn’t. Shaker looks under the ring once more and….SHAKER JONES PULLS OUT A METAL TOOLBOX!!
Deadprez: Shaker throws the box of tools over the top rope inside the ring and the toolbox scatters open and tools fly everywhere inside the ring! Shaker rolls inside the ring and looks at the choices of weapons inside the ring now with the tools scattered all around the ring! Shaker picks up a hammer…OH NO! Shaker walks to the severely injured Ryan on one knee–SHAKER SWINGS THE HAMMER! BUT RYAN WILSON DUCKS IT AND OH MY GOD RYAN SWINGS A WRENCH HE PICKED UP AND HITS SHAKER JONES IN THE BALLS WITH IT!!! SHAKER GOES DOWN LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES!!
Gavin Kirkland: Now both men are down now and Ryan seems to be stirring to get back to his feet first before Shaker. Shaker is still down in very serious pain holding his crotch. Ryan rolls out of the ring and stands against the apron for a second before going underneath the ring. The hell is Ryan pulling out from under the ring now?!?
Eve: IS THAT….THAT’S A SHAVING KIT!!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson slides in the ring with the shaving bag and has a smile on his face, he’s gonna try humiliating Shaker Jones here tonight! Ryan Wilson opens the bag up and pulls out the shaving cream, and oh god, he bends down and sprays it all over Shaker’s face and spreads it! Ryan Wilson stands and goes back to the bag and he pulls out an electric razor and then flips it on! He’s not really gonna do this to Shaker is he?!
Eve: RYAN BENDS DOWN AND TRIES APPLYING THE RAZOR TO SHAKER’S MUSTACHE!!! YOU CAN’T DO THIS! SHAKER IS TRYING TO FIGHT IT BUT IT’S NO USE!
Gavin Kirkland: HOLY SHIT!!! SHAKER GRABS THE SCREWDRIVER NEXT TO HIM AND STABS RYAN WILSON IN THE ARM WITH IT!! :damn:
Eve: Shaker stands up still in a lot of pain from the crotch shot by a wrench, he tries wiping off the shaving cream as best as he can, he looks over at Ryan panicking as the screwdriver is just stuck in his arm! Ryan is seated in the corner looking at the screwdriver scared to pull it out of his arm—
Deadprez: SHAKER JONES RUNS AND KICKS THE SCREWDRIVER EVEN DEEPER INTO RYAN WILSON’S ARM!!! JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!! RYAN WILSON IS IN TEARS RIGHT NOW!!! SHAKER PICKS UP RYAN WITH AGGRESSION AND BRINGS HIM TO THE CENTER OF THE RING!!!
Eve: THE SPINNING DDT CONNECTS TO RYAN WILSON! THE REIGN OF TERROR IS FINALLY OVER!! :blessed:
Deadprez: NO!!! RYAN GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I have zero idea how, that Showdown job must really mean the world to him! And will someone please take that screwdriver out of his arm already?! :noah:
Eve: Shaker sits there and doesn’t know what else to do, Shaker now gets to his feet limping in a bit of pain and he tries lifting up what seems like the dead weight of Ryan Wilson off the mat and he trying to go for The Howling once more to finally put this match away for good! SHAKER LIFTS RYAN OFF THE MAT FOR IT AGAIN—BUT RYAN REVERSES IT AND CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING BACK ELBOW THAT CAUSES SHAKER TO STUMBLE INTO THE CORNER! Ryan barely able to move goes to the corner and lifts Shaker Jones up high, what he has planned we have no idea BUT FIRST RYAN IN ONE SWIFT MOVEMENT PULLS THE SCREWDRIVER OUT OF HIS ARM THAT WAS IN SUPER DEEP!! OWW!!!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson after a few moments goes up top with him and it looks like he’s setting up for a hurricanrana but Shaker isn’t letting it happen! Shaker throws a headbutt at Ryan stopping Ryan from attempting it! Shaker Jones seems to have the momentum now as he throws several right hands to the skull of Ryan Wilson! SHAKER JONES STANDS AND BALANCES HIMSELF ON THE TOP ROPE ABOVE THE SEATED RYAN ON THE TOP ROPE….OH MY GOD!!!–
Gavin Kirkland: RYAN PUSHED SHAKER JONES WHEN HE WAS STANDING HIGH AND PUSHED HIM TO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR AND SHAKER JONES LANDED RIGHT ON TOP OF THE BED OF NAILS WOOD PLANK!!! SHAKER IS OUT!!!!
Eve: Ryan sits on the top rope and the camera zooms in to see his face after he pushed Shaker on top of the nails. Ryan quickly hops off the rope and slides to the outside. Shaker’s arm he landed on is bloodied to hell, and most of his body has pierces from the nails!
Deadprez: Ryan picks up Shaker and throws him in the ring. Ryan slides in and picks up Shaker……HE PUTS HIM IN A SUPLEX POSITION AND HOOKS THE RIGHT LEG–MMMIICCC DDDRROOPPP!!!!! THE SMALL PACKAGE DRIVER CONNECTS AND RYAN HOLDS THE LEG FOR THE PIN!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Awaken” by Dethklok hits as Ryan lets go and lays an exhausted mess. The referee raises his hand while on the mat before going to check on Shaker Jones.)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER……AND STILL THE SHOWDOWN GENERAL MANAGER……RRRRYYYYAAANNNN WWWIIILLLSSSSOOONNN!!!!!!
Eve: DAMMIT! Well, still gotta give credit where it’s due. Ryan Wilson earned this win here tonight. And now he’s still our boss! Great battle between two warriors, they laid it all on the line tonight!
(Ryan WIlson gets to his feet and lets out a smirk as he body is covered in blood and scars. He celebrates in the ring as Shaker is getting checked out by medical members. Medics check Ryan but he pushes them away as he exits the ring.)
(Odyssey returns from the commercial break with Interim General Manager Ryan Wilson celebrating around the hallways backstage. He had just gotten the victory over Shaker Jones just moments ago. He feels over the moon about the result. Not only did he get his victory, but he secured his spot as Interim General Manager.)
Ryan Wilson: THAT IS WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!!!
(Despite being in a shitton of pain and having a missing tooth or two, Ryan Wilson manages to get enough energy to dance around and celebrate his victory.)
Ryan Wilson: Kyra, come here. I need you to interview me.
(Kyra Phillips is standing near the interview section, testing her microphone as she goes to Ryan Wilson. Ryan gestures for Kyra to come to him before she stands just a few inches away from him.)
Ryan Wilson: Kyra, ask me how I feel.
Kyra Phillips: Alright, Ryan, you have just defeated Shaker Jones in a Hardcore Match to save your position as Interim General Manager. How do you feel about everything that just happened? What’s running through your mind?
Ryan Wilson: Kyra, I feel fantastic. I told EVERYONE that I would defeat Shaker Jones. Just like I defeated and embarrassed Shaker Jones at Pain for Pride last year, I did the same thing just moments ago. Everyone would have wanted nothing more than to see Shaker Jones end my tenure as General Manager of Showdown. I looked all over social media and people wanted nothing more than for me to get my comeuppance, but that didn’t happen whatsoever. Instead, Shaker ended up finding himself embarrassed. Shaker ends up finding himself in the position that he’s already used too and that’s a loser. Shaker Jones is nothing more than a loser, who doesn’t know when to quit. If anything, I have been trying for ages to get Shaker traded to all of the other brands but Captain Charisma and StarrStan aren’t budging, but it’s whatever. I hope that Shaker finally understands where he stands on Showdown and there’s nowhere near my level. It’s at the bottom of the card. Tonight, it was an opportunity for him to step up and prove why he deserves more opportunities. Why does he deserve to be on these cards? Instead, I got good ole Shaker Jones choking underneath the pressure again. I proved once again that Shaker isn’t cut out for being a star on Showdown, let alone on any brand.
???: Speaking of not being cut out for being a star anywhere.
(Chris Elite walks into the camera shot. He is already in his ring gear, preparing for his Answers World Championship match against Mr. DEDEDE.)
Ryan WIlson: Shouldn’t you be preparing for your title match, Chris?
Chris Elite: Shouldn’t you go back to kissing the ass of Ryan Adams?
Ryan Wilson: Hahaha, you’re hilarious.
Chris Elite: I wish I could say the same to you.
Ryan Wilson: Let me guess: you’re here to defend your buddy Shaker after he embarrassed you and your endorsement?
Chris Elite: I’m still convinced that Shaker could smack the dog shit out of you any other day. Today, it was a little of an off day, but he still put on a performance to remember. Shaker will go back to the drawing board. I refuse for him to get down due to this loss. But man, it gets annoying to hear you running your mouth. In the words of Mark Michaels, this is the reason why I don’t come here often. It’s the reason that I spend my days on Dynasty now. I mean, who’d want to be on the brand with you calling the shots? Since you got yourself a little power, you can’t learn to shut up. Like stfu damn. Whenever you’re on the screen, there should be a flashing light on the corner of the screen, so people know that this is the moment to take a piss and whatnot.
Ryan Wilson: Are we still on the ‘piss break’ comments?
Chris Elite: Are you still on my dick?
Ryan Wilson: I’m in no one’s dick. I don’t roll like that.
Chris Elite: :skip:
Ryan Wilson: If anything, you’re just in time for an announcement. I wasn’t expecting an audience, but I’m just going to come out to say it. Due to my wonderful performance in the Hardcore Match, I am here to announce that I will have the FINAL spot in the No Way Out Match tonight!
Chris Elite: Yeah, that’s not going to happen.
Ryan Wilson: Why not?
Chris Elite: I’m Gawd Contracting Shaker into the No Way Out Match!
(Ryan Wilson raises a brow before chuckling.)
Ryan Wilson: You gotta be joking?
Chris Elite: Shaker has been a loyal soldier for me since day one. He has kept things down for me since I went to Dynasty. He’s taken good care of the Bozos and I could not repay him anymore for that. He’s more than earned this…more than you would have to be honest. Imagine Shaker losing to a bozo like yourself and then moving on to win the No Way Out Match? :wow:
Ryan Wilson: That isn’t going to happen whatsoever. Shaker is going to get demolished by all of the competition in that match up. He just got destroyed in the Hardcore Match against me. Are you willing to put him through another heartache as he loses another match tonight?
Chris Elite: I’m confident that Shaker is going to knock this opportunity out of the park. Most importantly, he is going to prove you wrong and me versus Shaker is going to headline Pain for Pride. :wow:
Ryan Wilson: Well, it’s nice that you have aspirations, Chris. You tell Shaker to prepare for the main event, but it doesn’t matter how much preparation he gets, he is going into this match and getting his ass beat.
(Ryan Wilson leaves Chris Elite, but turns back to him one last time.)
Ryan Wilson: And, I am going to enjoy every second of him getting his ass beat.
(Ryan Wilson has a smirk on his face as Chris Elite shakes his head before fading back to ringside.)
(“Debate Scrum” by Masafumi Takada plays throughout the empty arena as Harper Lee comes out with a more than happy look on her face. She’s more than excited to finally be getting her hands on Veena Adams.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS A WOMEN’S NO WAY OUT QUALIFYING MATCH AND IT’S SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!! INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA…. HARPER LEE!!!!!!
Eve: Harper Lee has been waiting for weeks to get her hands on Veena Adams, who has kept delaying this match against her. Harper was supposed to face Veena two weeks before Grand Rampage, but she never bothered to show to the arena. Harper claimed that Veena was ducking her, but Veena has stated that Harper isn’t worth her time, but agreed to face her tonight at Odyssey!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson decided to make this match a bit more interesting and the winner will get the last spot in the Women’s No Way Out Match at Fighting Spirit next weekend! This match will be fantastic with any of these women in it, but only one of them will be able to qualify for the match!
Gavin Kirkland: Harper Lee doesn’t have an easy match as she would like to believe! Veena Adams may be someone that she’ll have a difficult time with putting down! Veena has been preparing for this match and I could see all of that preparation paying off for her!
(“ME” by Taylor Swift featuring Brendon Urie plays through the speakers as Veena Adams comes out with a confident, but bitchy look on her face. Harper Lee is demanding for Veena to get into the ring, but Veena is taking her time.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING HER OPPONENT…FROM GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT… “THE VANILLA GODDESS”…VEENA ADAMS!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: QUEEN V!!!! :blessed: :blessed: A woman whose family symbolizes greatness! Veena Adams has been preparing for a huge opportunity like this! She has promised that her presence on Showdown will be met with vengeance as she promises to take down all the whores that stand in her way!
Eve: People may not enjoy Veena Adams’ objective or motivations, but there’s no denying that this woman is completely talented! I think that she may surprise people tonight, but Harper Lee is amazing in her own right! It’s going to be difficult to keep her down!
Deadprez: Honestly, it’s up on the air on who qualifies for this match, but we’re in for a good match!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: Women’s No Way Out opportunity on the line! Harper Lee has been waiting for WEEKS to get her hands on Veena Adams! Now, the time is here! Harper is gesturing for Veena to come at her, but Veena seems to be in no rush to begin this match! Look at Harper! Harper is more than willing to lock up in the center of the ring with Veena!
Harper Lee (off-mic): Come on, Veena! I won’t bite!
Deadprez: I don’t think that Veena Adams fully believes that, but she goes to lock up with Harper Lee in the center of the ring, but Veena right away goes for a waistlock on Harper! But Harper manages to turn herself around and counter with a waistlock on Veena! Harper manages to take Veena down, before going with a front headlock! Harper gets Veena up to her feet, but Veena manages to push Harper into the corner! Veena goes to retrieve Harper at the corner, but Harper connects with a back elbow to Veena, which staggers her back! Harper Lee gets on the top rope with Veena going to Harper, but Harper connects with a crossbody onto Veena! Harper is in perfect position for the cover!
Gavin Kirkland: Veena Adams shove Harper Lee off of her! Harper is on her knees as she gets Veena up by her hair! BUT, VEENA MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A HUGE SLAP ACROSS HARPER’S FACE! THE SLAP WAS ENOUGH TO STAGGER HARPER BACK AS VEENA MANAGES TO GET HARPER AND THROW HER TOWARDS THE CORNER! Veena begins connecting with some stomps onto Harper’s ribs! Harper is trying her best to stand herself up, but Veena manages to stomp Harper into a seated position! Veena connects with a foot choke to Harper at the corner! She holds it there as the official begins her count!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR —
Veena Adams (off-mic): I HAVE UNTIL THE COUNT OF FIVE!
Eve: Veena Adams picks up Harper Lee by her face before connecting with another slap to Harper’s face! Harper drops right back down to a seated position! VEENA HAS A SMIRK ON HER FACE AS SHE TAKES A COUPLE STEPS BACK BEFORE RUNNING TOWARDS HARPER AND CONNECTING WITH A BRONCO BUSTER! NOW, VEENA FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A STINKFACE! THIS IS SO DEGRADING! VEENA CALLS THAT COMBINATION ‘THE FORBIDDEN FRUITS!’
Gavin Kirkland: Harper Lee is so lucky right now. :drool:
Deadprez: :skip: That’s a degrading move as Veena Adams seems so proud of herself at the moment! She takes a few steps back once again before connecting with a meteora to Harper Lee’s face at the corner! Veena gets to her feet as she pulls Harper by one of her arms! Veena irish whips Harper to the opposite corner! Harper manages to hold onto the corner as Veena charges towards her! She cartwheels herself before landing a huge elbow to Harper’s face —
Gavin Kirkland: No! Harper Lee manages to move herself out of the way at the last second! Veena Adams crashes onto the corner as Harper jumps on Veena with some double knees to the face and connects with a monkey flip! Veena flips to a seated position as Harper jumps on Veena’s back before running towards the set of ropes in front of Veena, rebounding off of them and nailing her with a basement dropkick! VEENA LANDS ON HER BACK AS HARPER RISES TO HER FEET BEFORE FOLLOWING THAT UP WITH A SHARP ELBOW DROP TO THE CHEST OF VEENA! VEENA IS CLUTCHING HER CHEST IN PAIN AS HARPER GOES FOR THE COVER!
Eve: Once again, Veena Adams pushes Harper Lee off of her! Harper rises back to her feet as she gets Veena Adams by her arm before throwing her towards the horizontal set of ropes! Veena rebounds off those ropes as Harper connects with a hip toss on ‘The Vanilla Goddess’ and she follows that up with a dropkick to the back of Veena’s head! Veena falls to her side as Harper manages to get to her feet and apply a headlock on Veena! Veena is trying to push Harper off of her, but Harper applies even more pressure onto the headlock! Veena is trying to get her arm around Harper’s neck. Perhaps, trying to counter with a headlock of her own?
Deadprez: Veena Adams manages to counter with a headlock of her own! Look at the grin on Veena’s face as she wrenches in the headlock, making sure that Harper feels the crank on her neck! Harper is trying to push Veena off of her, but Veena transitions the standing kneeling headlock into a headlock takedown! Veena begins to punch to the top of Harper’s head before giving Harper a noogie on the top of her skull before releasing the headlock! Another sign of disrespect to Harper! Harper rolls to her knees as Veena begins to roll back to her feet! Veena goes to get Harper, but Harper manages to push Veena, creating a bit of distance for herself before rising back to her feet! Veena rushes forward to throw a punch at Harper, but Harper manages to duck the punch before connecting with a kick to Veena’s backside!
Gavin Kirkland: Harper Lee connects with another kick to Veena Adams’ backside! Harper with another kick to Veena! And another one! And another one! And another one! Veena is doing what she can to cover herself from Harper’s vicious kicks, but finds some refuge at the nearest corner! HARPER BEGINS TO CONNECT WITH SOME SHOOT KICKS TO THE FACE OF VEENA! VEENA IS TRYING TO COVER HER FACE, BUT HARPER IS NAILING HER WITH EVERY SHOOT KICK! VEENA STUMBLES FORWARD IN RESPONSE TO THOSE KICKS, BUT HARPER MANAGES TO GET VEENA IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX! Veena is clutching her lower back in pain! Veena looks to get to her feet, but Harper manages to stop her with a step up enziguri! Veena falls to her side!
Eve: Harper Lee gets Veena Adams to her feet before whipping her towards the horizontal set of ropes! Veena rebounds herself off of those ropes before Harper connects with an axe handle clothesline! This drops Veena, who manages to get up right away! Harper connects with another set of axe handle clotheslines! The same result as Veena gets herself up again, but Harper connects with a third set of axe handle clotheslines! VEENA IS WOBBLY GETTING BACK TO HER FEET, BUT HARPER NAILS VEENA WITH A SUPERKICK, BUT VEENA MANAGES TO STAGGER BACK TOWARDS THE ROPES! HARPER CHARGES TOWARDS VEENA, LOOKING FOR A KNEE STRIKE —
Deadprez: BUT, VEENA ADAMS MANAGES TO LIFT HARPER LEE OUT OF THE RING!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! HARPER LEE MANAGES TO LAND ON THE APRON! VEENA ADAMS TURNS HERSELF AROUND AS SHE GOES TO NAIL HARPER WITH A FOREARM, BUT HARPER MANAGES TO DUCK THE FOREARM BEFORE GOING FOR A SHOULDER THRUST TO VEENA’S RIBS BEFORE GETTING HERSELF BACK TO THE RING! Harper heads for the top rope as she’s gesturing for Veena to rise back to her feet! Slowly, Veena manages to get to her feet! Harper from the top rope! Missile dropkick on Veena! Man, Veena ate that missile dropkick as she rolled herself to the outside! This match hasn’t gone quite well for Veena! Harper is not giving Veena any chance to recover! Harper is aware that if you give someone like Veena a chance to recover, it could mean bad things for her! Veena is covering her face! It seemed like Harper nailed Veena in the face with the dropkick as Harper rolled herself underneath the bottom rope in order to retrieve Veena!
Eve: Harper Lee gets Veena Adams to a vertical base, but Veena manages to push Harper away from her! Veena falls down to one knee as Harper goes back to get Veena to her feet, but Veena manages to push Harper onto the barricade! Veena is using the edge of the apron to get herself to her feet! Harper goes right after Veena again, but Veena nails Harper with a back kick to Harper’s stomach! Harper bends forward in response to the kick before Veena nails Harper with a punch, which staggers her back! VEENA GOES FOR A PALM STRIKE TO HARPER’S FACE WHICH KNOCKS HER BACK INTO THE BARRICADE! VEENA LICKS HER HAND AND SLAPS HARPER’S CHEST! MAN, THAT DOESN’T LOOK PLEASANT AT ALL! HARPER IS HOLDING ONTO HER CHEST! Veena gets Harper by one of her arms and whips her towards the edge of the arpon! The lower part of Harper’s back really felt that!
Deadprez: Veena Adams follows that up with a knee to Harper Lee’s stomach! Veena pulls Harper closer to her before connecting with a German suplex! Harper’s head bounces first against the barricade as Veena decides to leave Harper there before rolling herself back into the ring! Veena gets the official and demands that he start his count! Is Veena really looking to win this match via countout?
Gavin Kirkland: Harper Lee is starting to move and by the look on Veena Adams’ face, she’s beginning to get a bit nervous.
Eve: Harper Lee is in an all fours position, crawling her way back to the ring! Veena Adams is demanding for the official to count faster! I’m not sure if that’s possible, Veena! :lupe:
Deadprez: Harper Lee is pulling herself up using the bottom ropes!
Gavin Kirkland: HARPER LEE SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING ON TIME! THIS MATCH CONTINUES!
Eve: As soon as Harper Lee slides into the ring, Veena Adams goes after her like a predator going after it’s prey! VEENA BEGINS TO STOMP ON HARPER’S STOMACH BEFORE SHE GOES HAYWIRE WITH THE STOMPS AND CONTINUES TO STOMP ON EVERY PART OF HARPER! HARPER IS TRYING TO USE THE ROPES TO GET TO HER FEET, BUT VEENA MANAGES TO CLUB THE BACK OF HARPER’S HEAD! Veena gets Harper and throws her shoulder first against the post at the corner!

Deadprez: Harper Lee manages to roll herself out of the roll up! She wobbly gets back to her feet, but Veena Adams seems to be a couple steps ahead of Harper before nailing Harper with a super kick of her own! Harper stumbles back for a moment, but Veena follows that up with a butterfly suplex before transitioning that to a crossed arm breaker — VEENA CALLS THAT ‘FLOAT LIKE A BUTTERFLY’ AS SHE BENDS BACK THE RIGHT ARM OF HARPER! WHEN VEENA WAS THROWING HARPER INTO THE POST AT THE CORNER, IT SEEMS LIKE VEENA COULD HAVE BEEN PICKING A TARGET THERE! HARPER IS TRYING TO REACH FOR THE BOTTOM ROPE, BUT HARPER IS TRAPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! SUBMITTING AND ENDING THIS MATCH ISN’T AN OPTION FOR HARPER, BUT VEENA IS TRYING TO PULL HARPER’S ARM BACK, MAKING SURE THAT SHE DOESN’T MOVE WHATSOEVER! Harper begins to drag her body towards the bottom rope, but Veena still has a possession of Harper’s arm! But, Harper is fighting and dragging her body towards the bottom rope! She’s getting closer and…she’s there!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE LET GO, VEENA!
Gavin Kirkland: Veena Adams releases the hold as Harper Lee grasps onto the bottom rope! Veena gets up to her feet as she pulls Harper by one of her feet and yanks her away from the bottom rope! IT SEEMS LIKE VEENA DID ENOUGH DAMAGE TO HARPER AND THAT RIGHT ARM OF HERS! VEENA PULLS HARPER CLOSER BEFORE CONNECTING WITH AN ARM DDT ON HER INJURED ARM! YOU CAN HEAR THE CRIES OF PAIN ON HARPER’S FACE! VEENA BENDS BACK HARPER’S ARM BEFORE TAKING A MOMENT AND THEN, SHE STOMPS ON HARPER’S ARM! ONCE AGAIN, A CRY OF PAIN COMES OUT OF HARPER’S MOUTH AS VEENA SEEMS TO HAVE A HUGE GRIN ON HER FACE! Veena was smart to go after Harper’s arm. Now, she’s looking to do whatever she can to slow Harper down and decrease her chances of winning the match!
Eve: Veena Adams bends Harper Lee’s arm back again before delivering a dangerous stomp to it! Harper wiggles around like a fish as she goes to clutch her arm! The official takes Veena back a bit in order to check on Harper! But, Harper is trying to get back to her feet! She’s not planning on throwing in the towel whatsoever! Harper clutches her right arm as she’s telling Veena to come at her and give it everything that she has to offer! Veena rushes towards Harper and connects with a Lou Thesz Press on Harper! Veena begins to go off with a series of punches towards Harper! Veena is going out of control with these punches as she gets off Harper! Veena gets Harper by her hair before connecting with a snapmare! Harper is in a seated position as Veena jumps in front of Harper before connecting with a superkick that takes down Harper!
Deadprez: Veena Adams begins to stomp on the face of Harper Lee! Man, this is disrespectful from Veena! She rubs her boot against the side of the face of Harper! It seems like Veena is heading towards the top rope! Veena seems to be in the perfect position for this next move! Veena sets herself up on the rope before looking down on Harper, who is down at the moment! TWISTED VEENA — HER VERSION OF THE ROUNDING MOONSAULT, BUT THERE’S A BIT OF A SEMI-TWIST TO IT AS SHE LANDS ON HARPER! VEENA LANDS ON TOP OF HARPER AND IT SEEMS LIKE SHE’S GOING FOR A COVER IN THIS MATCH. COULD THIS BE ENOUGH TO TAKE DOWN HARPER LEE?
Gavin Kirkland: Harper Lee manages to get a shoulder up as Veena Adams seems to be pretty unhappy at the moment! She gets Harper by her neck and wraps a headscissors on Harper! Even though it’s not targeting the arm, it seems like Harper is sure feeling Veena’s legs are wrapped around her neck. Man, I wish that was me. :drool:
Eve: :skip: I’m about to smack your headset off your head.
Gavin Kirkland: You never let me have any fun. :mjcry:
Deadprez: Harper Lee is trying to get Veena Adams’ legs off of her neck, but it seems like Veena has Harper in the perfect position at the moment! The moment that Harper begins moving, the worse it can mean for Veena and her chances of winning the match! Harper is trying to find some way to get out of the headscissors, but Veena is demanding for Harper to “stay down”.” In a way, it seems like Veena can feel her grasp on Harper slowly moving away from her! Harper is trying to get Veena’s legs and pull them off of her neck, but Harper manages to kip herself up to her feet! Veena rolls herself to her feet as Harper falls down to a knee while clutching her arm!
Gavin Kirkland: For what seems to be the first time since the beginning of the match, these two women look at each other with glares! It’s safe to say that these two women don’t like each other. In Veena’s case, she doesn’t like women in general! For Harper, she hated how Veena spent weeks ducking her and their potential match! Harper just wants to wrestle and she’ll wrestle anyone, but she just wants to use this as an opportunity to shut Veena up once and for all! The two women manage to get to their feet as they lock up once again, but Veena manages to connect with a waist lock on Harper, but Harper manages to elbow Veena in the face again, but that doesn’t release Veena’s lock on Harper! Harper goes to elbow Veena in the face once again, but Harper ducks the elbow before getting Harper by her injured arm before connecting with springboard arm drag as Harper goes flying across the ring!
Eve: It seems like Harper Lee landed on her right arm! Don’t forget that Veena Adams was working on the arm at some point in the match up! Harper is doing everything that she can to fight through the pain, but it seems like Veena was smart in picking the body part that she wanted to target with Harper! Harper goes right after Veena, but Veena manages to connect with an armdrag on Harper as she lands on that injured arm again! Veena rises back to her feet as she manages to deliver a dropkick, nailing Harper in that right arm of hers! Harper backs away to the corner and she tries to sit herself up! VEENA BEGINS TO NAIL HARPER WITH HER OWN VERSION OF SHOOT KICKS! IT SEEMS LIKE VEENA IS STILL TARGETING HARPER AND HER ARM! HARPER IS TRYING TO BLOCK HER ARM AND PREVENT VEENA FROM DAMAGING IT EVEN MORE, BUT VEENA CONTINUES TO NAIL HARPER WITH THOSE SHOOT KICKS! Veena takes a step back as her eyes are focused on Harper at the corner —
Deadprez: VEENA ADAMS RUNS TOWARDS HARPER LEE AT THE CORNER BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A RUNNING UPPERCUT TO HARPER! HARPER STUMBLES FORWARD IN RESPONSE TO THAT BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! VEENA GETS HARPER IN POSITION FOR THE KILLER QUEEN’S RHAPSODY — THE KIMURA LOCK! VEENA IS LOOKING TO SNAP HARPER’S RIGHT ARM BACK!
Gavin Kirkland: Not quite yet, Deadprez! Harper Lee manages to get her foot to the corner before Veena Adams could apply the hold completely! Harper is aware that this is a submission hold that she wants no part of! With Harper’s injured arm, it could make the situation a lot worse for her! Harper manages to roll herself into the ring as she’s clutching her arm!
Eve: Is Veena Adams taunting Harper Lee?
Veena Adams (off-mic): Come on! Let’s get this match over with! Or are you too afraid of me?
Deadprez: It seems like Veena Adams is trying to egg on Harper Lee to get back into the ring, but Harper getting herself out of the ring may have saved herself the match! Harper needs to think carefully about what she wants to do next! Veena seems to be in a better shape than Harper at the moment! Veena is aware of that for sure! Harper realizes that as well, but she’s wondering what she is going to do to make sure that she wins the match for herself!
Gavin Kirkland: I don’t think that Veena Adams wants her time wasted! She’s an Adams after all and they don’t like their time wasted at all! Veena looks at the set of ropes behind her as she rebounds herself off of them and launches herself to the outside! Suicide dive to Harper Lee!
Eve: Both of these women crash down to ringside! VEENA ADAMS IS SLOWLY GETTING TO HER FEET AS SHE THROWS HARPER LEE’S BODY TOWARDS THE STEEL STEPS! VEENA TAKES A STEP BACK BEFORE DELIVERING A NASTY BOOT KICK TO HARPER AS HER HEAD GOES BOUNCING BACK WITH THOSE STEEL STEPS! VEENA GETS HARPER AND ROLLS HER BACK INTO THE RING! Meanwhile, Veena is heading for the top rope again! I wonder what Veena has in store now, but we could be seeing the end of this match up! Veena situates herself on the top rope! Harper rolls herself to the corner where Veena is standing on top of! Veena from the top rope —
Deadprez: FATAL VOW — MOONSAULT DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON HARPER LEE! VEENA ADAMS WITH THE COVER!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: HARPER LEE WITH HER FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!!!!!
Eve: The pissed off look on Veena Adams’ face is completely priceless! She thought that this was going to be over! Veena is smacking her hands against the mat! She is pissed off at the moment! I think that we’re going to see Veena at her most dangerous now! Not many people are able to bring that side of Veena! Veena claims that she’s been busting her ass off in training! She is the same person who believed that Harper Lee wasn’t worth her time! I wonder how she feels about Harper now?
Deadprez: “Fuck all these whores” has been Veena Adams’ mantra since she graced back into EAW programming! It doesn’t matter if Harper Lee has lasted long in this match, it won’t change Veena’s opinion on her! It won’t make Veena realize that Harper isn’t a bad wrestler at all! Veena has her opinions and she’ll stick by them till the day that she dies! Veena backs herself towards the corner! She forms that typical Adams smirk across her lips as gestures for Harper to get back to her feet! This is the same move that her uncle has done millions of times! It’s become a trademark for him! Veena is anticipating for Harper to get to her feet! I don’t think that Harper has a clue about what Veena has underneath her sleeve as —
Gavin Kirkland: SPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!
Eve: HARPER LEE MANAGES TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND!!!!!
Deadprez: Harper Lee manages to get Veena Adams by her waist and throw her back with a German suplex! Veena manages to land on her feet! Harper runs towards Veena with a knee strike, BUT VEENA MANAGES TO PUSH HARPER AWAY FROM HER BEFORE GETTING HARPER IN A HEADLOCK POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SPINNING HEADLOCK INTO AN ELBOW DROP TO THE BACK OF HER HEAD! VEENA CALLS THAT ‘A DARK TURN’ AND THAT’S EXACTLY THE DIRECTION HAS TURNED! Veena begins to slowly back away towards the corner! I think that I am going to hate this next move for sure! :lupe:
Gavin Kirkland: Veena Adams is looking to put an end to Harper Lee’s aspirations of becoming Universal Women’s Champion with one simple punt kick. Veena calls this ‘Skull Fracture.’ This is one move before Killer Queen’s Rhapsody!
Eve: Harper Lee is on all fours at the moment! Veena Adams charges towards Harper — SKULLLLLLLLLLLLLL FRAAAACCCCCCCTTTTUUUUURRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
Deadprez: SOLAR FLARE — JUMPING FLATLINER ON VEENA ADAMS!!!! HARPER LEE MANAGED TO CATCH VEENA ADAMS OFF GUARD WITH SOLAR FLARE! NOW, HARPER RUNS TOWARDS VEENA — CLASS TRIAL!!!!! THE KAMIGOYE KNEE STRIKE ON VEENA!!!!!! HARPER LEE WITH THE COVER!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!? SHE KICKED OUT?!?!??!?!
Eve: I think the referee is trying to inform Harper Lee that Veena Adams kicked out at the last second! How in the hell is Veena still in this match? Harper Lee is completely speechless at the moment! Look at the face of Veena! She’s smirking! She’s down and out, but she can’t help, but have that smirk on her face!
Deadprez: HARPER LEE BEGINS TO APPLY THE GUILLOTINE CHOKE, NIGHTMARE IN LEE’S RING! NIGHTMARE IN LEE’S RING ON VEENA ADAMS! HARPER IS DOING WHAT SHE CAN TO MAKE SURE THAT VEENA STAYS DOWN!
Gavin Kirkland: But, you can see Veena Adams doing everything in her power to fight this submission hold, but Harper Lee is not letting go of this move whatsoever! Veena is not looking to submit here! She’s not looking to lose this match to Harper Lee! Harper is screaming for Veena to tap out!
Eve: Veena Adams is shaking her head no! SHE’S WAY TOO STUBBORN TO SUBMIT HERE, BUT HARPER LEE IS NOT RELEASING THE HOLD! SHE’S GOT VEENA WHERE SHE WANTS HER TO BE! YOU CAN SEE VEENA SLOWLY FADING AWAY!
Deadprez: VEENA ADAMS HAS STOPPED MOVING AND THE REFEREE IS GOING TO END THIS MATCH! VEENA HAS STOPPED RESPONDING!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Debate Scrum” plays once again as Harper Lee releases the hold on Veena Adams. Harper rises back to her feet as the referee raises her hand in victory.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…HARPER LEE!!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Harper Lee qualifies for the Women’s No Way Out Match at Fighting Spirit next weekend, but it was truly a different battle for her! Veena Adams did not make things easy for her whatsoever!
Eve: Veena Adams proved that this is completely a different version of her! This loss shouldn’t have people write her off as someone who isn’t good in the ring! Veena is an amazing athlete with a bright future and at least, she could say that Harper wasn’t able to pin her nor did she submit to Harper!
Deadprez: As for Harper Lee, she goes off to vye for an opportunity to get a Universal Women’s Championship Match at Fighting Spirit! Congratulations to Harper Lee!
Gavin Kirkland: This is a fantastic night so far, but it’s not over yet! I can’t wait to see the next match on the card!
Eve (in the background) Oop! Here comes Jake Smith’s second match of the night! Take it away, Gina!
(The camera pans to Gina Romano in the middle of the ring.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH UNDER PURE RULES SET FOR ONE FALL! AND IT IS FOR THE EAW PURE CHAMPIONSHIP!!!
(“People = Shit” by Slipknot hits as Shane Gates walks out followed by his wife Angela Grant. You can read the determination on his face like a book. He wants this championship, he wants to walk into Pain For Pride as champion. He begins walking to the ring as his wife follows closely behind.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA….WEIGHING IN AT 213 POUNDS….ACCOMPANIED BY ANGELA GRANT…..SSSHHHAANNNNEEEE GGGAATTTEESSSS!!!!!
Deadprez: This man earned his way into this match by defeating the other challenger in this match Lucas Johnson a short while ago. This man for years has been working for an opportunity like this, an opportunity for a singles championship on a big stage. He has the chance to walk into Pain For Pride as champion and we all know he would love nothing more. He;s been working hard and we’re gonna see if tonight’s finally gonna be his night!
(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media hits as Lucas Johnson walks out on the stage embracing what’s about to go down. Albert Hitchman is rubbing his shoulders on the stage giving him a pep talk before they make their way to the ring.)
Gina Romano: MAKING HIS WAY TO THE RING….FROM LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK….WEIGHING IN AT 197 POUNDS…..ACCOMPANIED BY ALBERT HITCHMAN…..LLLUUUCCCAASSSS JJOOHHHNNNSSSOOONNNN!!!!!!
Eve: Another guy who wants to be a champion going into our biggest show. He has made it his mission ever since he returned to win that PURE Championship, he’s come up short on several occasions but I feel this might be his best chance yet with Ryan Wilson putting all his faith in him and with Jake not at full health because of the brutal tag match he competed in earlier in the night.
(“War” by Grandson hits as Jake Smith walks out a bit sore from the Tornado Tag Match he competed in earlier in the night. He has the PURE Championship in his right hand. He raises the PURE Title high in the air on the top of the ramp before walking down.)
Gina Romano: AND THEIR OPPONENT….FROM ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY….WEIGHING IN AT 210 POUNDS….HE IS THE REIGNING EAW PURE CHAMPION…..JJJJAAAAKKKEEE SSSSMMMMIITTTTHHH!!!!!!
Eve: The two time PURE Champion is here! He’s made his feelings known he doesn’t like having to defend his title against these two tonight, but he has no choice. He’s gonna have to earn his way to Pain for Pride tonight. There’s a lot working against him here tonight. He’s not fully healthy after that war he went through not too long ago in the Tornado Tag, and also don’t forget about Angela Grant and Albert Hitchman lurking at ringside. There’s no Alexis out here to save him tonight. They’re the wildcards, so he’s gotta keep an eye out on both of them.
(The referee shows the PURE Title to all 3 competitors before holding it in the air.)
(PURE Championship graphic flashes across the screen.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding)
Deadprez: And the triple threat match for the PURE Championship is officially underway! All three men slowly step to the center of the ring, AND OH NO! BOTH SHANE AND LUCAS GLARE OVER AT JAKE! Jake has both of his hands up begging for some bit of mercy from these two!
Jake Smith(no mic): Oh come on now, I was just kidding all wee–
Eve: Shane and Lucas start pounding away on Jake Smith! Jake is being double teamed and has nowhere to go, he has no one to blame but himself for how he talked to these guys the past few weeks! Shane and Lucas bring Jake to his knees and Jake is trying his best to get out of this situation and Jake crumbles to the mat as both men start stomping the life out of him! Jake eventually manages to roll himself out of the ring and both Shane and Lucas kick him out of the ring before exiting the ring after him! Shane grabs Jake’s head and bounces it off the announce table! Lucas grabs Jake’s head and bounces it off the announce table now! Both men are taking turns slamming Jake’s head! Jake staggers around a bit and he finds himself balancing against the corner of the barricade, he’s already exhausted from the tag match earlier this evening…AND WOAH!! BIG BOOT FROM LUCAS JOHNSON THAT SENDS JAKE SMITH OVER THE BARRICADE INTO THE EMPTY CROWD!
Gavin Kirkland: But when Lucas turns around he runs into a clothesline from Shane Gates! Lucas took his eye off an opponent in a championship match which you is a big ass no-no! Angela now is instructing her man to get Lucas back in the ring as Albert on the opposite end of Angela is exchanging words. Shane throws Lucas back in the ring and now the fight is just between the two of them as they took out the PURE Champion just a few short seconds ago! Lucas is trying to crawl away from Shane but Shane now grabs Lucas by his foot, and now he’s dragging Lucas to the center of the ring but Lucas is trying to fight off Shane! Lucas manages to use his feet and push Shane backwards in order to buy time to get to his feet, Lucas is on his feet now and Shane walks right into the arms of Lucas! Belly to back suplex connects onto Shane Gates! The Wrestling Machine is feeling fired up here!
Eve: Albert Hitchman has that sinister smirk on his face as he watches on from the outside as his client goes back on the offense! Lucas reaches down and grabs the foot of Shane going for the ankle lock–BUT SHANE ROLLS THROUGH AND REVERSES IT INTO A PIN!!
Deadprez: NO! Both men race to their feet now and Lucas goes for a running lariat, but Shane ducks under, and then Shane connects with a hard spinning back elbow to the face of Lucas Johnson! Shane grabs the head of Lucas and now drives his knee into the face of Lucas repeatedly! Lucas is on spaghetti legs right now as he runs to the ropes–BUT JAKE GRABS THE FEET OF SHANE GATES FROM THE OUTSIDE AND PULLS HIM TO THE OUTSIDE FORM THE UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE! JAKE GRABS SHANE BY THE HEAD AND THROWS HIM—WOAH!!!!
(Shane goes flying into the Showdown announce team behind the announce desk. Gavin gets out of dodge as quickly as he possibly can, seeming disgusted.)
Gavin Kirkland: FUCKING GROSS! I WANTED HIS WIFE TO FLY ON TOP OF ME, NOT THIS DORK!!
(Gavin takes out a small bottle of sanitizer from his back pocket and squirts some on his hand before rubbing his hands together, still disgusted.)
Deadprez: I got my headset back on, and Angela is trying to help get her husband away from our announced area, but look inside the ring! Jake Smith slides back in the ring and has his sights set on Lucas Johnson! JAKE CHARGES AT LUCAS–BUT RUNS INTO ANOTHER BIG BOOT FROM LUCAS! Lucas caught him dead in his tracks again and Jake once again tries retreating but Lucas ain’t letting it happen! Lucas is able to pin Jake against the ropes with his leg! Jake is stuck on the middle rope and Lucas has his knee on the back of Jake’s head leaning all his weight forward! Lucas lets go and now Jake is dangling on the second rope and Lucas sees that as he runs to the ropes–AND LUCAS DRIVES HIS KNEE AS HARD AS HE CAN INTO THE BACK OF JAKE SMITH’S HEAD! Lucas is like a shark that smells blood right now….pun intended.
Eve: Lucas now grabs the top of the rope and leaps high in the air and drives his knee into the rib cage of the grounded Jake Smith! Lucas does this once more! Jake is still in pain after that war of a tag match he went through earlier in the night and I think Lucas sees how much pain he’s in and wants to use this as an advantage to finally capture that PURE Championship he’s been determined to win since returning! Lucas picks Jake up off the mat and connects with an uppercut to Jake’s jaw that drives Jake Smith back into the corner! OH NO! Shane Gates from behind Jake connects with a running front dropkick to Lucas’s back and that causes Lucas to collide with Jake Smith in the corner! Lucas is face first with Jake in the corner right now!
Jake Smith(no mic as he pushes Lucas by the face away): GET THE HELL OFF ME FAGGOT!
Eve: Jake is angry as he pushes Lucas out of his way–BUT OH GOD!! SHANE GATES COMES IN LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN! SHANE CONNECTS WITH A HUGE SPLASH IN THE CORNER ONTO JAKE! Jake pushed Lucas out of the way to get him off him, AND LUCAS BEHIND SHANE GOES FOR THE ROLLUP! But Shane manages to reverse out of it and now he’s standing as Lucas is on one knee still from the failed rollup–SHANE GOES FOR A KICK RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF LUCAS’S HEAD–BUT LUCAS CAUGHT THE FOOT! LUCAS HAS THE ANKLE LOCK APPLIES NOW ON SHANE GATES! LUCAS IS TWISTING THAT ANKLE AS HARD AS HE CAN AND SHANE IS IN PAIN! ANGELS IS GOING NUTS ON THE OUTSIDE ENCOURAGING HER MAN TO GET TO THE ROPES–BUT SHANE HAS HIS HAND UP AS IF HE’S GONNA TAP–
Gavin Kirkland: Alright, I’m back. Guessing I didn’t miss anything important. Gotta keep myself healthy in these times.
Deadprez: Well Gavin, Shane looks like he’s gonna tap and Lucas is gonna win the PURE Title! Shane manages to reverse the pressure now and he’s lying on his back as he pushes Lucas to get him to release the hold, BUT LUCAS HELD ON! LUCAS STILL HAS THE ANKLE LOCK ON TIGHT! SHANE IS ONCE AGAIN PANICKING NOT WANTING TO TAP OUT RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW! JAKE SMITH COMES IT AND CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO THE BACK OF LUCAS’S HEAD CAUSING HIM TO RELEASE THE ANKLE LOCK ON SHANE! Jake Smith grabs Lucas by his trunks and his head and throws him shoulder first into the ring post through the second turnbuckle! Jake Smith just took Lucas out of the equation as of right now as he turns his focus to Shane Gates in the ring holding his ankle after being in the ankle lock for so long!
Eve: Jake looks to pick up the pieces as he approaches Shane on the ground now, but Shane throws a kick to Jake’s midsection as he lies on the ground stunning Jake for a quick few seconds! Shane pulls himself up in the corner, and now Jake runs at Shane Gates in the corner looking for a spear to the midsection–But Shane leaps himself up and Jake misses the target! Shane now uses this and follows it up with a sunset flip pin from the corner–BUT JAKE ROLLED THROUGH IT AND NOW JAKE’S BACK ON HIS FEET AND LOOKS DOWN AT THE SEATED SHANE AND THROWS A VICIOUS SUPERKICK TO THE FACE OF THE DOWNED SHANE GATES! DID YOU HEAR THAT?! LOOK AT THE HORROR ON ANGELA’S FACE FROM THE OUTSIDE! JAKE GOES FOR THE COVER NOW!
Gavin Kirkland: Shane gets the shoulder up! Jake rises to a knee thinking of his next move before getting to his feet and slowly begins to pick up Shane Gates by his head and lifts Shane Gates on his shoulders setting up for his next move, but Shane isn’t making it easy for Jake as he’s trying his best to fight out of this! Jake is trying to fend off Shane and get him back in the original position he had him in–BUT SHANE TURNS IT INTO A SPINNING TORNADO DDT! Beautiful counter there from Shane Gates! Shane Gates is crawling to Jake to try going for the cover–
Deadprez: SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!!! LUCAS CONNECTS WITH THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM THE TOP ROPE LANDING ON THE BACK OF SHANE! LUCAS FLIPS SHANE OVER AND GOES FOR THE COVER!
Eve: Shane stays alive! Lucas ain’t happy that he didn’t put the match away there as he hops on top of Shane and begins raining down elbows to the head of Shane! The referee steps in and manages after a few moments to get Lucas Johnson to back off and get a little bit of separation! Not for long though as Lucas tries moving the ref to go back on the attack–BUT SHANE LIFTS LUCAS UP FOR A FLAPJACK–JAKE HITS A SUPERKICK TO LUCAS AS LUCAS WAS ON THE WAY DOWN! ACCIDENTAL TEAMWORK THERE FROM JAKE AND SHANE!
Deadprez: Jake seems proud of himself after that–BUT HE LOOKS UP AND SHANE RUNS AND LEAPS AT JAKE, BUT JAKE CATCHES SHANE IN A POWERBOMB POSITION ON HIS SHOULDERS! Shane has a look of fear on his face now! JAKE CONNECTS WITH A BUCKLE BOMB! Shane landed on the back of his head on the top turnbuckle, Jake waited for Shane to step out of the corner, and Shane walked right into the arms of Jake…PARALYZER! THE DEVASTATING SPINEBUSTER CONNECTS AS JAKE GOES FOR ANOTHER COVER!!
Eve: Lucas leaps and breaks up the count! Lucas gets to his feet and Jake shortly gets to his as well, Lucas connects with a knife edge chop to the chest of Jake now! Jake throws a knife edge chop of his own to Lucas! Lucas throws one! Now Jake! LUCAS! JAKE! LUCAS! LUCAS! Lucas backs Jake into a corner with the knife edge chops and now drives his right shoulder into the midsection of Jake in the corner! Lucas does it once more! Lucas stands Jake to a vertical base in the corner and drives his elbow into the side of Jake’s face now in the corner! Jake is cornered right now! Lucas swings at the head of Jake now though! BUT JAKE DUCKED! Jake switches places with Lucas and Lucas is the one cornered now and Jake throws several body shots at the rib and mid section area of Lucas Johnson! Jake slams his arm into the chest of Lucas in the corner now! Jake lifts Lucas to the top rope and Jake throws another forearm to the head of Lucas on the top rope! Jake turns around–
Gavin Kirkland: HOLY SHIT! SHANE CHARGES AT JAKE! BUT JAKE LEAPED SHANE IN THE AIR AND SHANE LANDS ON THE SHOULDERS OF LUCAS ON THE TOP ROPE, AND SHANE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A HURRICANRANA FROM THE TOP ROPE!! That just flew Lucas all the way across the ring and Lucas rolls out of the ring and he’s out of the equation again. but Jake is stalking Shane from behind as Shane rises to his feet! Jake turns Shane around and kicks him in the midsection, Jake hooks both arms of Shane for the Ride To Hell–BUT SHANE TWIRLS OUT OF IT AND HITS A PELE KICK TO THE SKULL OF JAKE SMITH! JAKE SMITH IS STUNNED! SHANE IS SETTING UP FOR IT! SHANE IS GOING FOR CALIFORNIAN DESTRUCTION!!!
Deadprez: CCCCAAALLIIIFFFOORRRNNIIAANNN DDEEESSSTRRRRUUCCTTTIIOOONN!!!!! THE CROSS LEGGED SAMOAN DRIVER!! SHANE GATES IS GONNA WIN THE TITLE!!
Eve: NO!! JAKE SMITH SOMEHOW GOT THE SHOULDER UP! Shane puts his hands to his head not believing Jake just kicked out of what maybe was his best shot! Angela is shocked as well, but she’s telling her man to go for it again! Shane Gates stands up and begins to pick Jake up off the mat–BUT WOAH! LUCAS JOHNSON RUNS IN FROM BEHIND SHANE GATES AND LAUNCHES SHANE GATES WITH A HUGE GERMAN SUPLEX!! SHANE IS ON ONE KNEE AND LUCAS RUNS AND KNEES SHANE IN THE HEAD CAUSING SHANE TO FALL OUT OF THE RING! Albert now is the one going crazy telling his client to pick up the pieces on a very wounded Jake Smith!! LUCAS WALKS OVER TO JAKE…BUT OH MY GOD–
Deadprez: JAKE QUICKLY WITH THE KICK TO THE MIDSECTION! HE HOOKS THE ARMS–RRRRRIIIDDEEEE TTTOOO HEEELL!!! THE ELEVATED BUTTERFLY DDT!!!! COVER!!!
Gavin Kirkland: THE FUCK?!?! ANGELA GRANT JUST PUT LUCAS’ FOOT ON THE ROPE! SHANE’S MANAGER JUST SAVED LUCAS IN ORDER TO KEEP HER MAN’S HOPES ALIVE!!
Albert Hitchman(Straightening his tie as he looks to Angela with a grin): This is fun, isn’t it?
Angela Grant(Holds her hand up showing the ring): Married.
Albert Hitchman: So?!
Eve: WOOOWWW!!! Jake had the match won there but Angela saved the match from the outside! You just had to know both Albert and Angela were gonna be obstacles as they are proving to be the wildcards in this triple threat match.
Deadprez: LOOK AT THE TOP OF THE RAMP!!
Eve: ALEXIS CHAMBERS! She’s making her way down the ramp with a pretty pissed off look on her face. Albert tries stopping her.
Albert Hitchman: Listen young lady, why don’t you just go on back–
Deadprez: ALEXIS CHAMBERS KICKS ALBERT AND LOW BLOWS HIM WITHOUT HESITATION! HOLY HELL! ALBERT’S DOWN! Alexis is face to face with Angela now….ALEXIS SPITS IN ANGELA FACE BEFORE GRABBING HER BY HER HEAD AND DRIVING HER BACK FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! ALEXIS IS PISSED OFF NOW AS SHE PICKS UP ANGELA AND PLACES HER AGAINST THE RING POST….ALEXIS SLAMS HER BY THE BACK OF HER HEAD REPEATEDLY INTO THE RING POST! ALEXIS IS MAKING SURE INTERFERENCE AIN’T GONNA BE AN ISSUE AGAIN!!
Gavin Kirkland: Aggressive women like her tho :ohlawd:
Eve: Jake has a smile on his face inside the ring as he sees Alexis taking out the obstacles! Jake and Alexis give a nod of agreement at each other! This must be what they were planning earlier backstage!
Alexis Chambers(no mic): FINISH IT!!
Deadprez: They both say they have each other’s back and Lexi made sure to tonight! Jake turns around inside the ring though–
Eve: SHANE GATES WITH A SUPERKICK! BUT NO JAKE CAUGHT THE LEG! JAKE SPINS SHANE AROUND AND SHANE LEAPS FOR A JUMPING LEG LARIAT–BUT JAKE DUCKS THAT! JAKE TRANSITIONS INTO A CROSSFACE!! Alexis looks on from the outside as Jake Smith has the crossface locked in deep on Shane Gates! Shane is trying to scramble to find a way out of this but I don’t see any way he can! Shane somehow manages to drag his body, he’s getting closer and closer to the ropes, SHANE REACHES FOR THE ROPES WITH ONE BIG LUNGE!
Deadprez: LOOK!! ALEXIS IS PULLING THE ROPES BACK!!! THE REFEREE IS FACING AWAY FROM ALEXIS! THE REF TURNS AND ALEXIS LETS GO WITH HER HANDS UP IN DEFENSE! COME ON NOW!!! That may have done the damage though because Shane spent more time locked in the crossface, and I think he might be fading here! Alexis has an evil grin on her face!
Eve: SHANE IS REFUSING TO DIE RIGHT NOW!! SHANE GATES ONCE AGAIN–SHANE GETS TO THE ROPES FORCING A BREAK! Jake gets up right away and drags Shane to the center of the ring looking to lock it in again but Shane pushes Jake with his feet–HE PUSHED JAKE RIGHT INTO LUCAS! SKULL CRUSHING FINALE CONNECTS ON JAKE SMITH!! LUCAS JOHNSON SEES SHANE GETTING TO HIS FEET AND HE BEGS HIM TO TURN AROUND!!!
Deadprez: CLAYMORE KICK ON SHANE GATES! LUCAS JOHNSON’S GONNA WIN THE TITLE! THERE’S NOBODY AROUND!!
NEW PURE CHAMPION!!!!
Eve: NOT AGAIN! ALEXIS CHAMBERS IS ON THE APRON AND THAT DISTRACTS THE REFEREE!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!?! ALEXIS SAVED JAKE’S PURE TITLE AGAIN!! Shane rolls to the outside as Jake is still unconscious inside the ring.
Deadprez: Lucas stands and now has a look of anger as he begins to approach Alexis on the apron as she’s still arguing with the official–
Gavin Kirkland: JAKE SMITH LOW BLOWS LUCAS INSIDE THE RING!!! The referee turns his attention back to the ring off Alexis! Alexis turns her head to the outside and sees Shane Gates getting to his feet–
Eve: RUNNING HURRICANRANA FROM ALEXIS OFF THE APRON TO SHANE GATES! ALEXIS HAS TAKEN OUT SHANE GATES! LOOK INSIDE THE RING!!
Deadprez: JAKE SMITH IS UP AND PICKS LUCAS UP……AND HOOKS BOTH ARMS–RRRIIIDDEEE TTOOOO HEEELLLL!!!!!! JAKE SMITH HOOKS THE LEG!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“War” by Grandson hits as Jake Smith gets to his feet. Alexis Chambers grabs the PURE Championship from the timekeepers area and enters the ring. She waits for Jake to stand, the two smile and laugh as they embrace in a hug. Alexis then hands the title to Jake before the referee raises Jake’s hand.)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…..AND SSSTTIIILLLLLL EAW PURE CHAMPION….JJJAAAKKKEEEE SSSMMIITTTHH!!!!!!
Eve: THAT’S what they were discussing, not just her evening the odds. What a sick excuse this man is as the holder of that PURE Title! ONCE AGAIN, he can thank Alexis for retaining the title for him.
Gavin Kirkland: I mean, he did have the match won fairly before Angela got involved in case you’re forgetting.
Deadprez: You may not like it, but Jake walks away STILL PURE Champion…and he’s walking into Pain For Pride as champion. It’s something some people don’t like, but something we just gotta accept. Take nothing away from Lucas and Shane either, both put up a hell of an effort and both came close to winning the PURE Title for their own on several occasions but Alexis once again comes in handy as she saved Jake from disaster.
(The final shot is of Jake and Alexis on the top of the ramp smiling. Jake holds his PURE Championship high in the air with his right hand, and has his left arm wrapped around Alexis Chambers.)
(The scene fades into Veena Adams backstage in the trainer’s room. Veena is sitting in the chair as she has an ice pack on the back of her neck. To say that this night was perfect would be an understatement for Veena. It was really terrible and Veena is pissed off of the result. She felt confident that she was going to defeat Harper Lee and qualify for the Women’s No Way Out Match at Fighting Spirit next weekend, but that did not happen and that totally sucks. By the look on Veena’s face, she doesn’t seem to be in the mood to talk to anyone at all. She just wants to be left alone and with her feelings.)
???: Tough night, **Veena Whoredams?**
(Veena Adams’ bad mood intensifies even more by the familiar sound of a female voice. She is familiar with the voice. As much as she wants to forget her voice, it seems to be an unforgettable voice. Veena rolls her eyes before continuing.)
Veena Adams: Cumdumpster Blairhead…
(The camera pans to Candice Blair who is already in her ring attire, prepared for the No Way Out Match later tonight. Candice oozes confidence, which seems to annoy the hell out of Veena Adams. Veena puts her ice pack down in order to glare at Candice.)
Candice Blair: Isn’t it hilarious that at Under Siege, I was in that same seat just reflecting on my loss against Jamie. Now, it’s you who is reflecting on your loss against Harper?
Veena Adams: Me? Reflecting over my loss against Handjob Leewhore? Don’t be silly. It was nothing more than a miscalculation on my part. Just because she walked away with the victory doesn’t mean that I’m going to change my mind and believe that she’s any good in the ring. If anything, she fucking sucks in the ring. No one is going to be looking at her performance by next weekend. I came into the match with nothing more than the perfect plan to humiliate that whore, but she outsmarted me and that’s the reason why she managed to pull off with a victory. It wasn’t because she was a better wrestler than me. It wasn’t because she outbested me in the ring. It was because she outsmarted me. Now, she can move onto the No Way Out Match and squander the opportunity and continue to be a constant humiliation to the Showdown brand. If anything, I am going to have a ball watching her disappoint the brand and get demolished by all the other whores. Something, that you’re going to know the feeling off tonight.
Candice Blair: You wouldn’t be the first person who’s told me that I am going to get demolished in the No Way Out Match tonight. People look at me and don’t believe I have much of a chance at winning. I’ve been hearing that since the moment I qualified for the match. I’ve been called weak and not emotionally ready for the intensity of this match and what comes of it if I manage to win. Of course, you would love to see me go out there and fall on my face, Veena. You get off on the destruction of all the other women, but I’m not going to give you that in my match. I will not get demolished, destroyed or whatever you think is going into the match. You are probably just some of the people who believe that me being part of this match is just me being set up for failure, but I’m going into the match with all of the intentions to prove everyone wrong.
Veena Adams: That’s cute. It almost makes me want to puke a bit. You’re going into the match to get your ass beat by men and it’s not going to be in the way that you’re used too. You have no business in being in that type of match, let alone contending for the Answers World Championship. Maybe, Malcum was on with you and Cumille switching No Way Out Matches. I think that the Women’s No Way Out Match is more suited for you, but I digress. You Avas are difficult to change to the minds of. You are some of the most arrogant and stubborn women that I have ever met and you have Cumeron reproducing? Gawd, no one asked for her to reproduce. If anything, she’d be doing the entire world a favor if her and her fetus died and burned in hell–
Candice Blair: Don’t fucking go there, Veena.
Veena Adams: Did a strike a cord? Aww, poor baby. You should leave. We wouldn’t need for you to get emotional before your big match.
Candice Blair: You’re right, I don’t need to be emotional before my MAIN EVENT match. A scene that you will never touch as long as you’re on Showdown. It sucks that you are the niece of Ryan Adams and yet, you haven’t been able to touch the main event scene since you’ve recovered from your neck injury. Instead, you’ve been nothing more than a whipping post for a majority of the women on Voltage. You thought that things would be different on Showdown, but Harper made you her bitch. It doesn’t matter which brand you find yourself on, you will be someone’s bitch. It’s kinda sad. Despite not having the best win/loss record on Showdown, I still manage to get myself in these types of matches. Now, I am going to headline Pain for Pride. :wow:
(Veena Adams doesn’t say anything, but continues to glare at Candice Blair.)
Candice Blair: #QueensOnly, bitch.
(Candice Blair forms a huge smirk on her face and leaves the trainer’s room, leaving Veena Adam more fuming than ever. )
( RECAP: We receive the background heading into this match, starting with Chris Elite’s announcement to ban all fans attending EAW live shows until further notice. This would be the beginning of chain events, depicting Chris using his Gawd Contract to book other Elitists into matches on a whim, including the wife of the EAW Chairman, Kassidy Heart. It would be the Fight Grid report of Chris cancelling the EAW tour of Asia that pushed Mr. DEDEDE over the edge, provoking him to address Chris Elite’s ‘abuse of power’ three weeks ago on Showdown. DEDEDE, along with Kassidy, were in the middle of burning Chris Elite’s Gawd Contract in the ring when HRDO would confront him and shut down this attempt – citing the legal powers of the contract.
HRDO urged DEDEDE to take the Gawd Contract in the only appropriate way, ‘by combat’. The following week a heated verbal confrontation between DDD and Elite would take place, leading to DDD challenging Chris Elite to a match at Odyssey where if Chris loses, his Gawd Contract is banished. However if Chris wins, he becomes the Answers World Champion. Chris would only agree to this match under the condition that DEDEDE faces his nemesis, Harlow Reichert. The recap concludes with highlights of the action between DDD and Harlow, leading to Chris Elite costing DDD the match via interference and being chased out of the Performance Center by Kassidy Heart. Chris’ smile after only adding fuel to the fire remains the lasting image. )
(Return to the arena)
( “Invincible” by Pop Smoke comes on, and Chris Elite walks out dressed to compete along with a Nike tech hoodie. Chris continues his confident entrance to the ring with his eye on the Pain for Pride banner hanging in the distance. )
Deadprez: Say you want about Chris Elite and his relationship with the Showdown staff and talent, but we have seen this young man prove that he is still capable of some of the best performances of his career. Whether it was Road to Redemption in the Extreme Elimination Chamber, or that incredible performance in the War Games match, or even at King of Elite despite not coming out on the winning end there is no reason for Chris Elite to come into any match against anybody with doubt.
Eve: And that’s why he isn’t tonight. It was on a fateful autumn night nearly three years ago where he conquered the odds and accomplished the unthinkable. He defeated Mr. DEDEDE live on FPV with the entire world watching, in the biggest storyline of the year to earn the coveted and elusive Gawd Contract, and he’s had a Hall of Fame career since then. But is tonight where it all gets turned on its head? Is tonight perhaps the night where Chris Elite’s karma all catches up to him for better or for worse?
Gavin Kirkland: It wasn’t karma that earned Chris the Gawd Contract, it was his abilities in that squared circle! It brought him to this dance when all else failed, and if he still has what it takes, it’ll keep him in this dance!
( “Let It Go” by A$AP Ferg comes on, and Mr. DEDEDE walks through the billowing smoke with a ‘People’s Champ’ t-shirt and the Answers World Championship around his waist. )
Deadprez: Competing in the ring with Mr. DEDEDE is as mentally and physically demanding of an experience as you’re ever going to have in your career, regardless of the event. He is always “on” 24/7, but competing against DDD when there is something to lose is like facing a whole nother animal. The way I see it there’s Playoff Lebron, there’s Game 6 Jordan, and there’s Pain for Pride DDD.
Gavin Kirkland: “Something to lose” sounds like a hell of an understatement this time around Prez! That horrifying display we all witnessed at the Grand Rampage alone should be the perfect example of what kind of savage entity our fearless leader can become when he is unfairly provoked!
Gavin Kirkland: DDD isn’t in the ring tonight against just anybody, he’s against a guy who cost him who knows how much money by cancelling the Asia tour, he’s facing a guy who’s mocked and verbally as well as physically assailed his wife. There isn’t too much love loss between DEDEDE and Chris Elite but here will be a LOT of loss for Chris if he doesn’t take The Gawd seriously!
Eve: I don’t think there’s any possibility of Chris taking this match lightly, but to your point, the only way to really win against DDD is if you have a specific game plan to beat him. For Chris this isn’t likely to be a brawl like at Gateway To Glory, and there are no partners like at Fighting Spirit. The better man will leave the winner, it’s really that simple.
( DDD and Chris Elite have taken their corners, Gina Romano is at the center of the ring )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL and is for the AANNNSWWWWWWWWWWERRS WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORLD CHAMPIOOOOOOOONSSHIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!! Should Chris Elite lose this contest, he will officially be stripped of the GAWD CONTRACT!
Introducing first…. from Brooklyn, New York, weighing at 210 POUNDS!!!!!! “GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS”, CHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRIIIISSSSSSSSSSSS EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( Chris Elite mouths off, ripping off his hoodie and tossing it across the ring to hit DDD with it. DDD swats the sweater out of the way and talks a load of shit right back. )
Gina Romano: His opponent, residing in The Ryan Adams Estate of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, weighing in at 230 POUNDS!!!!!! HE IS THE SELF-PROFESSED “PEOPLE’S CHAMPION” AND THE REIGNING, UNDISPUTED, ANSWERS HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WOOOOOOOOOOOOORLD!!!! MMMIIIISTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRR DEDEDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
( DDD holds up the Answers World Title with one hand and holds up his signature devil horns with the other. He repeats promises of breaking Chris emotionally and physically. He then hands the title to the official, allowing the official to hand it off to the timekeeper. DDD and Chris are in their respective corners warming up, loudly trash talking before the official calls for the bell. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Deadprez: Chris Elite vs. Mr. DEDEDE III, the end of a three year saga, this should be special.
Eve:DDD and Chris Elite snap into a contentious collar & elbow tie up locking horns like bulls. Really getting after it, snarling and scowling during this physical exchange. For either The Peoples Champion or Gawd Given Greatness third time will be the charm, and the stakes couldn’t possibly get any higher here at Odyssey. On one side a Gawd Contract empowering Chris Elite to do whatever the hell he pleases to whoever he pleases is up for grabs. For the other, the Answers World Championship during undoubtedly the most critical point of the EAW season is on the line. This much is for certain; the toll for whoever leaves this ring on the losing end will be enormous.
Deadprez: The furious lock up has DDD and Chris Elite trading spots, and really pushing at each other for a dogged test of strength. When you talk about DEDEDE and Chris Elite at the end of the day you’re talking about consummate pros at what they do; they know everything is on the line tonight, and never underestimate the lengths that a man will go through to keep what he values. Especially when you got as much pride as DDD and Elite both have.
Gavin Kirkland: DDD takes advantage of the size he has on his opponent and pushes Elite into the ropes, however Elite uses the momentum off of the ropes to come forward and back The Gawd up. DDD transitions nicely into a side headlock, Elite attempts to push DDD into another set of ropes, he actually manages to do so, but DDD applies a wrist lock and is actually using those ropes to ‘corner’ Elite while torquing his arm in that upward arching position.
Eve: There is A LOT of trash talking coming from both of these two under their breath, it’s literally a borderline entire conversation behind had – DDD questioning Chris’ strength, and Chris testing DDD mettle. Elite is going for a standing switch of sorts, but DDD stops him in his tracks merely by overpowering him and turns the wrist lock into a behind-the-back hammerlock. Elite sinks down to a knee, attempts to twist his body into a potential drop toehold, but DDD rolls through it and turns that hammerlock into a kneeling armbar. Elite is still able to turn his body in order to face DDD – and maneuver his weight beautifully to get almost a rolling body-scissors transition into a lateral press over DDD!!!
Deadprez: Not even a one count! DDD shoves Elite off of him and the two storm up from the ground, just for DDD to snatch the left wrist! But Chris Elite rips away his grasp and SHOVES him back with a loud chest bump! And he’s got some words to back that!
Chris Elite: Don’t touch me you flabby pedophile. I aintcha wife.
Deadprez: DDD shoves him right back! They’re getting in each other’s face now! The official is calling for both guys to allow cooler heads to prevail, and they both snap into a collar and elbow again. This time it’s Chris with the snug side headlock, DDD trying to pry himself out of it and worm his way behind his man with a rear waistlock. Standing switch by Chris! And he nearly sends DDD on his face with a textbook rear mat slam! JUST TO SMACK DDD ACROSS HIS HEAD!
( Chris Elite stands over DDD and blows a snot rocket into his hair. )
Gavin Kirkland: Ewwww. 🤢 Disgusting vile caveman antics from Elite! DDD looks up at Chris with a death glare, you can tell he’s having trouble even processing that gross shit Chris Elite just did!
Eve: Oh he’s processed it alright. DDD quickly darts up and perhaps seeing red he went for the wild haymaker, but Chris cuts DDD off with multiple knife edge chops to the chest! Spin kick to the midsection! DDD doubled over, Chris rebounds off the ropes to go for a running punt kick into the side of the head! DDD straightens up at the right moment, and wants the GAWD-O-MATIC FROM BEHIND!!!
Sit-out reverse facebuster is countered with a PELE KICK! Followed by a reverse roundhouse, DDD ducks, Chris finishes the spin with a ROLLING ELBOW! DDD sent staggering, Chris quickly sprints to the far away turnbuckle with unfathomable speed! 44 BULLDOG! DDD sent crashing into the corner with a shotgun dropkick!
Gavin Kirkland: JUST TO COME ROARING OUT OF THAT VERY SAME CORNER WITH A SPEAR!!!!!
Eve: BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!!!! SPEAR COUNTERED INTO THE BOX OFFICE SMASH, CHRIS ELITE JUMPS OVER DDD AFTER THE WICKED SHOT FROM THE SUPERKICK!!!
Eve: DDD KICKS OUT!!!
Gavin Kirkland: OUT OF ONE!
Chris Elite: Forreal ref, FORREAL?!
Ref: That was one, Chris!
Deadprez: Chris Elite hops to his feet and backs away, almost marveling at the unhuman showing of defiance from DDD. Look at this man he’s already getting himself back up! Mr. DEDEDE is getting up to his feet on his own-
Gavin Kirkland: BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!!!!!! A 2ND ONE THIS TIME, AND THE GAWD GOES TUMBLING THROUGH THE ROPES OUT OF THE RING!
Eve: YET HE’S STILL ON HIS FEET. HOW ON EARTH IS DDD STILL ON HIS FEET?
Deadprez: NOT FOR LONG, CHRIS ELITE GOES RUNNING THE ROPES AT A LIGHTNING PACE FOR A DIVING CORKSCREW MOONSAULT, CLEARING THE ROPES AND TAKING DDD DOWN AT RINGSIDE! BRILLIANT ACCURACY, AND BLINDING QUICKNESS!
Gavin Kirkland: SO fast! Executed as quickly as the snap of your fingers! And already Chris Elite peels his opponent from the ringside floor to toss him into the ring. Chris hops on the apron, eyeing the turnbuckle…
Chris Elite (from the ground): EAT A D-D-DICK RYAN ADAMS, THIS MOTHAFUCKING MATCH IS MINE!
Deadprez: Chris has got DDD right where Chris wants him in the drop zone mostly focusing on the pain in his back after slamming into that corner. Chris Elite leaps to the top rope in one bound. YOU GOTTA LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: 630 SENTON LANDS PERFECTLY!!!!!! AND CHRIS ELITE DRAGS DDD AWAY FROM THE CORNER FOR A COVER! AIN’T NO FUCKING WAY!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Eve: KICK OUT!!!
Chris Elite: (frustrated) C’MOOOOOON!!
Mr. DEDEDE: I am STUNNED Chris got that off so quickly! What’s even more stunning is that DDD survived it! This match hasn’t exactly gone an hour so it’s understandable that DDD’s got a bit left in his reserves, but there aren’t too many people in this world who’d still be in this after taking a blow like that!
Deadprez: There aren’t too many people in the world who can handle the kind of sheer punishment that DDD can handle.
Gavin Kirkland: Chris Elite is wasting little time, he is going right back for the apron and he’s making the climb back to the top rope! This just went from a 2 to a 10 at a startling rate, Chris is biding his time and waiting for DDD to roll into the right position for him personally…
( DDD begins to roll in a different direction, on track to roll out of the ring )
Eve: CHRIS IS WALKING THE TIGHTROPE! BALANCING HIMSELF OFF OF THOSE ROPES!!! CORKSCREW NORTHSTAR!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: HE GOT IT!
Eve: CHRIS ELITE JUST DELIVERED A SPRINGBOARD CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS, AND THIS TIME HOOKING BOTH LEGS WITH EVERYTHING HE’S GOT!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! TH-
Gavin Kirkland: DDD’S SHOULDER BOLTS UP FROM THE MAT!
Eve: CHRIS ELITE JUST DELIVERED THE MOST EFFECTIVE ATTACK IN MR. DEDEDE’S OWN ARSENAL, IN THE HISTORY OF HIS CAREER, AND DDD IS VERY MUCH STILL GOING!
( Chris Elite is holding his head totally flabbergasted by the call. )
Chris Elite: WHAT!? THAT WAS THREE YOU FUCKING DONKEY!
Eve: :damn: CHRIS JUST PIMP SMACKED THE REFEREE!!!
( Chris Elite stands up still fuming, and the referee holds his cheek with his eyes wide open and a face full of rage. )
Ref: ARE YOU SERIOUS?! FIRST DDD DISRESPECTS ME ON SHOWDOWN, NOW YOU?!
Chris Elite: YEAH me! You aren’t gonna screw me out of everything I worked for you dumb incompetant derelic. Do your JOB, or I’ll use my Gawd Contract to make sure you don’t have one! You useless bozo!
( The referee gets in Chris Elite’s face )
Ref: 13 YEARS, 13 YEARS AND THIS IS WHAT I GET FOR IT? AFTER ALL I’VE GIVEN TO THIS COMPANY?!
Chris Elite: Suck my dick beloved, ain’t nobody give a FUCK about your 13 years king. We ain’t thinking about 13, we thinking about THREE. ONE-TWO-THREE. :clap: THAT’S :clap: YOUR :clap: JOB! DUMBASS
Ref: You know what?!
( The referee takes off his referee t-shirt )
Ref: TO HELL WITH THIS JOB! I QUIT!
Eve: EXCUSE ME? WHAT DID HE JUST SAY???
Gavin Kirkland: He quit, Eve. He just said it.
Eve: BUT IT’S A WORLD TITLE MATCH FOR GOD’S SAKE!
Chris Elite: :russwtf: Quit?! Muthafucka you can’t qui-
( EAW Official Ike Sunflower throws his t-shirt at Chris Elite, startling him to death. He walks out of the ring with not a care in the world. )
Deadprez: Chris Elite is standing there looking downright baffled, and that expression on his face sure speaks for the rest of us! I been involved with the business for what’ll be 21 years in June, and on everything I have never seen an official walk out in the middle of a match. This is new to me. Then again in Elite Answers Wrestling you simply got to expect the une
Eve: DDD’S UP!!!! GRAND SLAM!!!!! GRAND SLAM ON CHRIS ELITE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NOT YET! STANDING SWITCH COUNTER OUT OF THE ROCK BOTTOM FROM CHRIS! GERMAN SUPLEX!!! DROPPING DDD ON HIS HEAD!
BUT CHRIS STILL HAS A HOLD FROM BEHIND SYNCHED IN, ROLLS RIGHT UP … INTO ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!!! CHRIS ELITE WAS ALMOST CAUGHT COMPLETELY OFF GUARD, BUT THOSE SPLIT SECOND CAT LIKE REFLEXES CAME THROUGH IN THE CLUTCH… LEADING THE WAY TO A THIRD CONSECUTIVE GERMAN SUPLEX!
Eve: Chris isn’t done! He rolls through again…AND TAKES DDD UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS FROM BEHIND! READYING HIMSELF FOR THE ONE WINGED ANGEL!
Deadprez: LONG KISS GOODNIGHT!!!!
Eve: DDD’S SENSES COME ALIVE AT THE LAST SECOND, AND HE LANDS BEHIND CHRIS ELITE! LOW BLOW!!!!!!! UPPERCUTTING HIM SO HARD, IT PROPELLED CHRIS ELITE IN AIR!
Gavin Kirkland: :damn: HE LITERALLY MADE CHRIS ELITE’S NUTS CLAP! CHRIS IS HOPPING AROUND HOLDING HIS UNMENTIONABLES — SPEAR!!!!!!!!!! SPEAR!!!!!!!!!!
( Another referee is confronting disgraced ex-referee Ike Sunflower on the top of the stage, interrogating him over why he would choose to walk out on a match. DDD barks orders at the new official to “Get the fuck in here” the same way he would speak to a dog. )
Deadprez: DDD PICKS CHRIS ELITE UP FROM THE FROM THE FLOOR, SLINGS HIS BODY INTO THE ROPES – JUST TO CATCH THE ONCOMING CHRIS ELITE WITH YET ANOTHER SPEAR!!! EVEN MORE EMPHATIC THAN THE FIRST, AND A TAKE-NO-SHIT AGGRESSIVE COVER! THAT’S GOT TO BE IT!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Eve: CHRIS ELITE KICKS OUT! DDD IS NOT OUT OF THE WOODS JUST YET!
Gavin Kirkland: The People’s Champ rolling away, just now finally giving himself the opportunity to recuperate. This has been almost like a fever dream of a match of sorts, this thing went from exchanging chain holds to bombs going back and forth and referees quitting on the spot. It’s all happening way too fast, I need my mommy!
Deadprez: DDD is using the ropes for a place of recovery and rest, all the while making sure he is out of the line of sight for a recovering Chris Elite. Chris favoring the midsection which for all we know may legitimate be injured; I can tell you first hand a spear from DDD can shatter your ribs especially when he gets enough momentum into it. It’s from the DDD playbook to never allow your opponent to recover where they can see you. It’s the predator mentality, eagle eye mindset, it’s what’s earned him all of the success he’s garnered in the span of three different decades. AND IT MIGHT BE WHAT SECURES HIS SPOT IN THE HEADLINE OF THE NEW ONE! CHRIS ELITE IS UP, DDD TURNS HIM AROUND –
Gavin Kirkland: GRAND SLAM!!!!!
Eve: STIFF BACK TO BACK RIGHT HAND SHOTS FROM CHRIS ELITE! GOING FOR A THIRD! DDD BLOCKS IT WITH HIS FOREARM! ROLLING BACKFIST! DUCKED BY ELITE! SHOOT KICK TO HAMSTRING, ROLLING BACK FIST, AND 5 BOROUGH COMBO COMPLETED BY CHRIS ELITE WITH A THUNDEROUS LARIAT!
Gavin Kirkland: ARM-TRAP COUNTER INTO THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK LIFTING BRAINBUSTER! MK DRIVER FROM DDD!!!!!!! DELIVERS
Deadprez: Are you serious???????
Eve: LAST SECOND COUNTER BY CHRIS INTO THE ROLLING NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! ROLLING THROUGH INTO THE POP UP OPEN YA MATA!!!
DDD COMES CRASHING DOWN INTO A LIFTING BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE, FOR FUCKS SAKES THAT ONE BASICALLY KILLED HIM!!!! DDD SEATED ON THE FLOOR, AND CHRIS ELITE COMES ROARING BACK WITH HIS SIGNATURE PENALTY KICK TO PUT HIS LIGHTS OUT! DDD’S BEEN TURNED INSIDE OUT, EYES ROLLED BACK INTO HIS SKULL, AND CHRIS PLOPS OVER HIM FOR A LAST GASP COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Gavin Kirkland: THE GAWD SURVIVES!!! KICK OUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SPLIT SECOND!
Deadprez: Man what a GNARLY, NASTY innovative version of such an already deadly strike! I don’t know how Chris Elite manages to think of stuff like this on the fly but every time he does it never ceases to amaze me!
Eve: DDD’s face is looking beet red and flushed with pure adrenaline, for a second he looked like a goner, but you can see the life back into his eyes – almost like he found a near gear inside of him. Chris Elite and Mr. DEDEDE are recovering at a similar rate, with Chris still favoring his ribs, which should tell you a lot about what those back-to-back spears really did to him. Chris as expected has the leverage advantage, and this time he’s actually helping DDD recover.
Deadprez: Not out of good nature Eve! CHRIS BRINGS DDD BACK UP TO HIS SHOULDERS FOR THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT THIS TIME HE SETS HIS SIGHT ON THE ROPES, SHADES OF THEIR ROAD TO REDEMPTION 2017 MATCH…. CHRIS JOGS TO THE ROPES WITH DDD ON HIS SHOULDERS! AND CHRIS ELITE WANTS THE SPRINGBOARD ONE WINGED ANGEL FROM THE 2ND ROPE!!!! NO NO NO NO NO NO DON’T DO IT!
Eve: CHRIS SPRINGS OFF!!!
Deadprez: But DDD hangs onto the ropes at the very last second, causing Chris to come rolling back! CORKSCREW CROSSBODY BY DDD!!!
( DDD and Chris Elite are both laid out for a brief moment, and DDD kips back up. )
Deadprez: DDD sends a recovering Chris Elite into the ropes, only for Chris to reverse the Irish whip with his own. NAH, COMBAT ROLL INTO THE JUMPING BACK ELBOW FROM DDD!
Gavin Kirkland: Both men scramble up, DDD stumbling into the corner. CHRIS ELITE WANTS TO RETALIATE WITH A JUMPING LARIAT INTO THE CORNER! NOBODY HOME! CHRIS HITS THE CORNER AND DDD JUST – RRRRRRRRRRRRAPPPTUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUREE!!!! HELLUVA KICK FROM THE PARALLEL TURNBUCKLE BEFORE I COULD EVEN FINISH MY SENTENCE! WHERE ON GOD’S GREEN EARTH IS HE GETTING THIS FROM?
Eve: Seriously, even when you listen to his breathing, it’s like an uncaged lion! Chris Elite was just sent over the ropes and tumbling hard out of the ring from that “Rapture” kick, and he’s using the support of the barricade for recovery. DDD has already made it up to the top turnbuckle, perched up high above the ringside floor and watching his prey recover down below. “VINTAGE DEDEDE” BRINGS CHRIS ELITE RIGHT BACK DOWN!!!
Deadprez: HE GETS ALL OF THAT HILO, BUT WHAT A LONG WAY DOWN THAT WAS FOR DDD!
Eve: No question, that may have taken just as much out of DDD as it did Chris Elite. That being said – BOY did it bring Chris to heel, it’s moments like this where doubt can so easily creep into his mind. He’s not in the driver’s seat anymore despite every crushing blow that for all intents and purposes should have finished this match. Now it’s DDD in control, pulling Chris Elite up by the head while sparing not the opportunity to sling verbal abuse.
Gavin Kirkland: BITCHSLAP OUT OF NOWHERE FROM CHRIS! THAT MIGHT HAVE STUNNED HIM!
Chris wants to send DDD into the ring, but DDD COUNTERS WITH A REVERSE IRISH WHIP INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! OUCH, CHRIS ELITE HITS THE SHARP END OF THE STEPS KNEES-FIRST, AN ABSOLUTE CAR CRASH LANDING FOR GAWDS GIVEN GREATNESS!
Deadprez: DDD re-enters the ring and orders the official to start his count, which is precisely what the ref needs to be doing, so of course he obliges.
Eve: DDD understands that there is no ‘champions advantage’ for The Gawd Contract, he has no problem taking this victory by pin count if it means accomplishing his goal. Chris definitely took a nasty blow to the knees that just went right into the jagged edges of those ring stairs, but he’s going to need to recover like his livelihood depends on it because in a lot of ways it just might.
( Chris is in front of the announce table still clutching at his right knee, having a hard time recovering. )
Gavin Kirkland: You can tell that collision with the steps messed him up pretty badly, if his mobility is shot now there might not even be any point of getting in the ring. He could still be a setting duck even if he breaks the count.
Eve: Referee’s count is up to 7, Chris makes it to the apron, but DDD TAKES CHRIS BACK DOWN WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE BENEATH THE ROPE! DDD follows Chris out of the ring and picks him up just to BASH his face right against the cover of our desk! Chris drops to the floor and DDD just unloads with an unrelenting flurry of punches to the mostly unprotected skull. Chris is trying to keep his arms up but it’s not doing him much good, and DDD hits a stomp right across the temple! The Chairman has his sights in our direction.
( As the referee starts his count, DDD orders the three announcers to move; Eve, Deadprez and Gavin stand up and back away. DDD SENDS CHRIS ELITE FLYING OVER THE ANNOUNCE TABLE. )
Deadprez: NOT SO FAST, CHRIS STICKS HIS LANDING BEHIND OUR ANNOUNCE DESK! DDD DOESN’T REALIZE IT! CHRIS CLIMBS UP THE DESK AND HITS A SPRINGBOARD CORKSCREW EUROPEAN UPPERCUT ONTO DDD!
Eve: COUNTER EXPLODER SUPLEX BY DDD, FOR FUCKS SAKES, SENDING CHRIS LANDING HEAD FIRST AGAINST THE APRON!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: GOD DAMN!
Eve: AND DDD RAGDOLLS CHRIS FROM THE FLOOR TO SEND HIM CRASHING BACK OVER OUR ANNOUNCE DESK WITH A BEAL!!! CHRIS’ BODY LAYING THERE CONTORTED AFTER THAT TRAINWRECK!
Ref: 5!!!! 6!!!!
Eve: Horrific tumble for Gawd Given Greatness! DDD dusts his hands off, rolls back in and out of the ring to break the ref’s count. He is clearly proud of his handiwork, and now he’s climbing up to the top of the announce table himself.
This is a precarious situation for both of these athletes, but it’s DDD with the worst of intentions in his mind. DDD CLASPS IN THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK, AND SENDS CHRIS ELITE PLUMMETING THROUGH THE TABLE WITH THE MK DRIVER!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: CHRIS IS FIGHTING! CHRIS IS FIGHTING! WRAPPING HIS ARMS AROUND THE LEGS WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS, REFUSING TO GIVE DDD FULL CONTROL OF THE ARMS! CHRIS GOING FOR A BACK BODY DROP OFF OF THE ANNOUNCE DESK!
Gavin Kirkland: DDD STANDS HIS GROUND, CHRIS SLIDES BEHIND DDD THROUGH HIS LEGS, NO WAY!
Eve: LONG!!!!! KISS!!!!!!! GOODNIGHT!!!!!!!!!! ON MAYBE ONE GOOD LEG!!!! OFF OF THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!!! IMPALING DDD’S HEAD INTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR!!!!!
( Chris Elite and Mr. DEDEDE are down at ringside, the referee begins his count. )
Gavin Kirkland: FOR ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY, DDD’S NECK MUST BE CRUNCHED INTO SAWDUST! HIS HEAD WAS JUST DRIVEN INTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH AN UNCONSCIONABLE THUD! CHRIS CAN ALMOST TASTE THE PAIN FOR PRIDE MAIN EVENT FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW!
Deadprez: As those replays air, you can hear the sound of skull splattering into the floor courtesy of the Long Kiss Goodnight off our damn announce desk! Ain’t a more horrific sound I’ve heard all night, but it’s music to your ears if you’re Chris Elite, because it’s exactly the kind of brutality it took to beat DDD the first time around – and it might be exactly what’s needed to put The Gawd away and put this saga to rest.
Eve: Chris Elite is up to his knees after painstaking measures of recovery, and now Elite is trying to bring DDD’s dead weight up from the floor as well. We are seeing the true competitor inside of Chris Elite right now, judging by things he could have easily left DDD out at ringside and went home with his Gawd Contract still in tow, but he fully intends on leaving with the Answers World Championship and headlining another Pain for Pride! At this point he is driven by his hunger for more! Chris sends DDD into the ring as the referee’s count reaches 9!!!!
Eve: JUST IN TIME! Chris Elite is back in the ring! And – WAIT A MINUTE, GRAND SLAM!!!!!
Deadprez: ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!
Gavin Kirkland: DRILLS HIM!!! CHRIS ELITE’S HUNGER FOR MORE WILL BE WHY HE EATS DEFEAT!!!!!!! GAWD WITH THE COVER!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! KICK OUT!!!
( A dry heaving Mr. DEDEDE takes out his frustrations on the mat. )
Gavin Kirkland: AFTER WHAT HE JUST TOOK, GAWD SUMMONED UP THE WILL TO DELIVER THE GRAND SLAM, BUT IT WASN’T ENOUGH!
Deadprez: DEDEDE’s bell is clearly still rung from that lethal blow to the head he took just moments ago off our announce desk, but even though DDDs bell was rung the bell to end the match wasn’t, which is all that matters! You can see the disbelief on his face, the frustration all over his body language! You could tell he was putting all his chips behind that Grand Slam, in this sport nothing subdues an opponent quite like a deadly strike from out of nowhere, but somehow Gawd Given Greatness is still going!
Eve: But it looks like DDD is going right back to the well, standing and stalking his opponent! The very best strategy you can have in a battle such as this one, there has been no let up from the beginning and it’ll be that way until the bitter end! Chris has no idea where he is, BUT HE’S IN FOR A PAINFUL REMINDER! DDD WITH A SECOND GRAND SLAM!!!!!!!
Deadprez: CHRIS SPINS BEHIND DDD AND COUNTERS WITH A CRUCIFIX BACKSLIDE PIN!
Eve: DDD OVER-POWERS THE CRUCIFIX BACKSLIDE INTO THE MK DRIVER! CHRIS COUNTERS OUT OF THE MK DRIVER WITH A BACK BODY DROP!
Deadprez: DDD CENTERS HIS GRAVITY, MAINTAINS THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK TO PLANT HIS FINISH- WOW NEVERMIND, DDD OUT OF LEFT FIELD SENDS CHRIS ELITE RUNNING SHOULDER TO STEEL, STRAIGHT INTO THE RING POST! He got a lot of momentum out of that, running Elite the entirety of the ring just to send him crashing right into unforgiving territory! OH!
Gavin Kirkland: DDD FOLLOWS UP, ANOTHER RAPTURE!!!!! BONE JARRING BOOT TO THE JAW THAT ALMOST SENDS CHRIS ELITE OUT OF THE RING, BUT DDD TOSSES HIS BODY TO THE FLOOR!
Deadprez: DDD MAKES THE LONG AND ARDUOUS CLIMB UP THE TURNBUCKLE, AND WHEN THAT MAN GOES TO THE HIGH RENT DISTRICT IT’S FOR NOTHING LESS THAN HIGH REWARD.
Eve: But watch Chris!…. He’s rolling his body in an angle to put himself out of positioning from the drop zone, laying at an inopportune angle for whatever DDD was going for! Sensational in ring aptitude to be able to know your positioning even in a bleak situation, that is the example of Hall of Fame instincts-
Deadprez: ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? DDD TAKES OFF ANYWAY!!!! NORTH STAR FROM DDD!!!!! CHANGING ANGLES IN MID-AIR!!!!! GOOD LORD!
Gavin Kirkland: WHAT?!
Eve: CHRIS JUST CAUGHT DDD COMING DOWN FROM THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS WITH THE BODY-SCISSORS!!! TRANSITIONING INTO “RANSOM”!!!! CHICKENWING OVER THE SHOULDER CROSSFACE!!!!
Deadprez: THE REFEREE MONITORING CLOSELY, DDD IS BELTING OUT THESE CRIES OF SHEER PAIN, DDD FINDS HIMSELF IN DIRE STRAITS AFTER PULLING OFF A UNBELIEVABLE MID-AIR ADAPTION OF THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS! BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN A DAMN THING NOW BECAUSE CHRIS HAS HIM WHERE HE WANTS HIM!!!
Chris Elite: YOU DONE!!!! YOU DONE!!! BITCH ASS! GRANDPA! GIVE UP! GO HOME!
Gavin Kirkland: EVEN MORE FORCE, EVEN GREATER TORQUE BEHIND THAT ‘RANSOM’ CROSSFACE! DDD IN AGONY! ASKING HIMSELF IF IT’S EVEN WORTH IT! I’M STILL FLOORED BY THAT COUNTER FROM CHRIS ELITE, EVEN ON HIS BACK HE CAN STILL FIND A WAY TO PUT YOU AWAY!
Eve: IT’S LIKE THESE TWO ARE SUPERHUMAN, THEY ARE CLEARLY ON A LEVEL THAT MOST OTHER ELITISTS CAN ONLY DREAM OF, AND WE’RE SEEING THAT IN FULL EFFECT IN THIS CONTEST! — WAIT, WAIT–
Gavin Kirkland: DDD GRABS THE REFEREE BY HIS COLLAR, HE’S CLINGING ON TO THE OFFICIAL WHO GOT WITHIN ARMS REACH! THE OFFICIAL IS TRYING TO PULL AWAY, BUT DDD WON’T LET GO! HE’S HANGING ONTO THE REFEREE FOR DEAR LIFE! BRILLIANT!
Eve: CHRIS ELITE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY LIVID! THE OFFICIAL IS TRYING TO ESCAPE THE CHAIRMAN’S CLUTCHES AS BEST AS HE CAN, AND IT’S PULLING BOTH DDD TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT TO THE ROPES! CHRIS KNOWS THIS IS SABOTAGING HIS RANSOM EFFORTS!
Chris Elite: BRUH!!
Eve: An anxious and frustrated Chris Elite jumps off the submission and is PRYING DDD by the ankle away from the official, back to the center of the ring! DDD TWISTS AROUND AND REELS CHRIS IN USING HIS LEGS FOR THE SMALL PACKAGE!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Eve: CHRIS ROLLS THROUGH INTO A PIN OF HIS OWN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Eve: KICK OUT! DDD AND CHRIS ELITE SCRAMBLE-
Deadprez: ROLLING THUNDER BY CHRIS ELITE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAR!!!! ROLLING THUNDER COUNTERED INTO THE SPEAR BY DEDEDE!!!!
Eve: SPEAR REVERSED INTO THE DDT BY CHRIS ELITE!!! ROLLING THUNDER DDT SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED!!!!
Deadprez: ROLL-THROUGH BY CHRIS FOLLOWING THAT SUCCESSFUL DDT, INTO A JUMPING “FACE VALUE”!!! LEAPING HAMMERLOCK DDT SPIKING DDD’S HEAD INTO THE CANVAS AND BENDING HIS NECK AT A SICKENING ANGLE!!!
Eve: CHRIS ROLLS THROUGH AGAIN!!! NOT LETTING GO! NOT GIVING IN! DRAGGING THE CARCASS OF THE GAWD BACK TO HIS FEET! SPINS DDD AROUND! TO PROP HIM UP TO HIS SHOULDERS YET AGAIN! LONG!!!!!!!! KISS!!!!!!!! GOODNIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: OFF THE MIDDLE ROPES!!! SPRINGBOARD ONE WINGED ANGEL OFF THE ROPES, KILLING THE CHAIRMAN!!!! DEEP HOOK OF THE LEG BY CHRIS!!!!
( The lights go out before 3. )
Chris Elite: FUCK MAN!
Gavin Kirkland: SOMEONE’S SUMMONING SPELLS ON THE FPV :noah: !!!!
Deadprez: Who ever could it be :sas2:
Eve: Wait, there’s a fire starting in the ring!!!!
( The ring is illuminated – by the fire of a flaming baseball bat. Chris Elite looks on from the shadows, eyes wide with horror, and we see the grim evil glare of Cage behind the flaming baseball bat. )
Deadprez: OH NAH THIS IS SCARY AS SHIT :krabs: !!!! CAGE IS BEATING THE HELL OUT OF CHRIS ELITE WITH THE FLAMING BASEBALL BAT!!! IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DARK NO LESS! THE BEWILDERED TIMEKEEPER HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO CALL FOR THE BELL!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Eve: THE LIGHTS COME BACK ON, CHRIS ELITE IS TRYING TO BAIL FROM THE RING – BUT CAGE TURNS HIM AROUND, AND SMASHES THE FLAMING BASEBALL BAT INTO HIS MIDSECTION!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!
( Cage stands over Chris Elite with a look of pure hatred. )
Gina Romano: Here is your winner by disqualification, CHRIS ELITE!!!
Cage: I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THIS CHRIS! AIN’T NO BLUE HAIRED BITCH TO GET IN OUR WAY NOW! JUST YOU AND ME BEST FRIEND!
Eve: ANOTHER STRIKE WITH THAT FLAMING BAT, RIGHT OVER CHRIS’ SPINE!!!
Deadprez: THE ONGOING WAR CONTINUES BETWEEN CHRIS ELITE AND CAGE, YOU CAN’T HELP BUT FEEL FOR CHRIS AFTER BEING ROBBED FROM YET ANOTHER SIGNATURE VICTORY AT ANOTHER FPV IN A ROW, BUT CAGE IS MAKING DAMN SURE CHRIS REAPS WHAT HE SOWS!
Gavin Kirkland: SKULL CRUSHING, FULL STRENGTH SWING FROM THE FLAMING BASEBALL BAT CRACKS CHRIS ELITE RIGHT ACROSS HIS HEAD!!! SPLATTERING HIS BLOOD EVERYWHERE :damn:!!!!
( Chris Elite lays there stoic and unconscious, blood gushing from the side of his head as if he was murdered. Officials storm the ring to get Cage out of the ring, and use a fire extinguisher to douse the flames of his weapon. “Smells Like Team Spirit” hits over the sound system and Cage nods his head in approval of what he’s done. He willfully takes his leave after being screamed at by multiple officials. )
Eve: This blood feud between Cage and Chris Elite just gets more and more dangerous as the days go by. I don’t know if either of them will ever let this go, it’s uncomfortable to watch.
Gavin Kirkland: To think Chris Elite was just a nanosecond from becoming the Answers World Champion and headlining Pain for Pride. It feels like these kinds of unfortunate shortcomings have befallen him all season long.
Deadprez: But not for nothing, it’s not as though he hasn’t done the same to others. Karma truly is a motherfucker. Even after the dogfight at Gateway To Glory, and the brawl from last night on Dynasty, Cage still wants more. He won’t stop until he runs Chris Elite out of this company.
( Cage continues to nod at his ‘craftsmanship’, soaking in the joy of making Chris Elite suffer. EMTs are coming to Chris’ aid, attempting to clean blood from his face and his body. The horrific scene continues until the camera fades somewhere else )
(Odyssey fades back into the ringside area.)
(“I Gave You Power” by Nas hits as white lights begin to flicker throughout the arena. Out steps Impact as he takes a few steps before shutting his eyes. After a moment passes, Impact opens his eyes wide and continues to walk down the ramp. He shows no emotion whatsoever as he has only one thing on his mind. Beating Xander Payne.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is set for ONE FALL!!!!!! Making his way to the ring, from Seattle, Washington!! Weighing in at 240lbs!! IMPACT!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: And here is the 9 time world champion from Dynasty! Impact and Xander Payne made this match official the night after Xander Payne first appeared on Friday Night Dynasty. It was there where Xander Payne got into the faces of both Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade. Impact didn’t take a liking to the way Payne treated his girlfriend, Sienna Jade, and made his way over to Showdown.
Eve: The two men both exchanged words as neither one seems to have respect for the other. Xander Payne challenged Impact to a match here at Odyssey, but was hit with the Evisceration before Impact finally accepted the challenge. These two have been going back and forth since then, and I’m positive that these guys will put it all on the line tonight.
(“It Follows” by Cane Hill hits, as Xander Payne steps out onto the stage. He has a mean look in his eyes as he stares directly at Impact who is standing in the ring. Xander Payne walks down the entrance without taking his eyes off of Impact.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent!!! From New York City!!! Weighing in at 159LBS!!!! PAYNEKILLER!!!! XANDER PAYNE!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Now don’t forget why Xander Payne became so frustrated and pissed off! He’s stated that he feels like Grand Rampage was supposed to be his moment, but after Kassidy handed Mr. DEDEDE handcuffs to use during the Answers World Championship match, Xander Payne feels like his opportunity was taken away.
Eve: Plus the fact that Impact decided to cut him off and had a few words to say to him as well didn’t really sit well with Xander either. Xander has a lot of built up anger but I don’t know how wise it would be to use all of that anger to try and take out the 9 time world champ.
Deadprez: Xander Payne wants to prove a point. He’s tired of guys like DDD and Impact being handed title reigns when he feels like Grand Rampage should have been his-
Eve: XANDER PAYNE JUST SLID INTO THE RING AND CONNECTED WITH A HARD RIGHT HAND ONTO IMPACT!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: Xander isn’t wasting any time! He’s throwing rights and lefts at Impact right now! Impact is trying to block these punches, but Xander is able to get them all to connect!! Xander now takes a step back then lunges his head forward as he connects with a nasty headbutt that lands right in the center of Impact’s chest! Impact falls back against the ropes due to the power from that headbutt!! Impact bounces back.. BUT IS MET BY A REVERSE JUDO TAKEDOWN BY XANDER PAYNE AS XANDER FLIPS IMPACT AND DROPS HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!! Impact pops up to his knees from the momentum, BUT XANDER FOLLOWS UP WITH A KNEE STRIKE TO THE FACE THAT SENDS IMPACT FLAT ON THE CANVAS!!!
Eve: Xander now reaches down and grabs at the head and hair of Impact. He attempts to bring Impact up to his feet, but Impact quickly starts firing away with right and left handed punches to get some separation. Xander loses his grip on Impact as Impact drops down to the canvas and rolls out of the ring to the ringside floor!
Gavin Kirkland: I don’t think Impact was ready for all of that as he’s clutching at his head at ringside.
Eve: But Xander isn’t letting Impact get any time to think as he slides under the bottom rope and makes his way over to Impact at ringside! Xander with another powerful right hand onto Impact! Another! Xander is forcing Impact to stumble backwards as he connects with a third consecutive right hand! Xander now kicks Impact in the stomach and pulls him in! They stand right beside the steel steps! Xander lifts Impact up!! EMERALD FROSION ON THE STEEL STEPS!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: XANDER JUST HIT THE EMERALD FROSION AS IMPACT LANDED BACK FIRST ON THOSE STEEL STEPS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, IMPACT WAS ABLE TO CONNECT WITH HIS DOUBLE KNEE FACEBUSTER!!! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN AT RINGSIDE!!
Referee: One.. Two.. Three..
Deadprez: Impact is laying flat over those steel steps as Xander looks completely out of it on the ringside floor. Impact tries to lift his head up, but his head quickly drops back down onto the steel that he is resting on. He turns his head and sees Xander Payne struggling on the floor, then begins to roll off of the steel steps. Impact is now on his feet, as he stumbles his way over to Xander Payne! Impact grabs Xander and lifts him up to his feet. KNIFE EDGE CHOP BY IMPACT!! It connects right onto the chest of Xander!! Impact now grabs Xander by the arm.. AND WHIPS XANDER RIGHT INTO THE STEEL STEPS BEHIND HIM!!!!
Eve: Xander crashes up against those steels steps and turns his body to lean up against them in a seated position. Impact takes makes his way over to Xander.. STEP UP ENZIGUIRI BY IMPACT AS HIS BOOT CATCHES XANDER RIGHT AT THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!! XANDER INSTANTLY FALLS TO HIS SIDE!!!
Referee: Four.. Five.. Six..
Gavin Kirkland: And now Impact gets up to his feet and reaches down to grab Xander Payne. He lifts Xander Payne and brings him up to his feet before sliding him back into the ring. Impact quickly follows right after and goes for a knee drop that catches Xander right in the face!! Xander grabs at his face in pain, as Impact goes to the side ropes!! FLIGHT SIGHTS!!! THE LIONSAULT CONNECTS ONTO XANDER PAYNE!!! Impact goes for the pin!!!
Eve: And there’s the kickout by Xander Payne!! Impact gets off of Xander and gets up to his feet before grabbing Xander by the head and bringing him up to his feet as well. Impact with a knife edged chop! Another! Now a right hook! A left jab! Xander is just getting beaten with these strikes!! Impact now with a kick to the side of Xander’s leg that forces Xander to drop to his knee!! SPINNING WHEEL KICK BY IMPACT!!! IT CONNECTS RIGHT AT THE SIDE OF XANDER’S HEAD AS XANDER DROPS FACE DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS!!
Deadprez: Impact is loving every second of this beating. He walks over to the body of Xander Payne and kicks him in the ribs!! Xander clutches at his sides in pain as Impact stomps down hard onto the center of his back!! Impact is dissecting his opponent right now. Ever since he hit that unorthodox Evisceration, he’s been in the driver’s seat. Impact walks around the body of Xander Payne with a smirk on his face. He then lifts his arms up and shrugs like he’s Michael Jordan in 1992, before stomping down onto the back of Xander Payne once more!! You can hear Xander Payne screaming in pain after that one!!
Gavin Kirkland: Impact now walks over to the corner. He begins to climb up the turnbuckles as Xander Payne is slowly getting up onto his hands and knees while grabbing at his lower back. Impact is now up on the top rope, facing the away from the ring, as he turns his head, and looks over his shoulder! Xander Payne is now up to his feet! MOONSAULT FROM THE TOP ROPE BY IMPACT!!!!!
Deadprez: NO!!! XANDER PAYNE RUNS FORWARD AS HE ENDS UP BETWEEN IMPACT AND THE CORNER!! Impact stumbles on his landing, as Xander Payne looks over his shoulder and sees this! Xander quickly running forward towards the corner as he quickly scales up to the top turnbuckle!! TWISTING MOONSAULT BY XANDER PAYNE!!!!!! IT CONNECTS!!!!!
Eve: And now Xander Payne is getting back up to his feet! He looks down at Impact who is laying on the canvas in pain! Xander runs to the side ropes, he bounces back, AND CONNECTS WITH A JUMPING SEATED SENTON THAT LANDS RIGHT ACROSS THE CHEST OF IMPACT!!! XANDER HOOKS THE LEGS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: And Impact gets his shoulder up! Xander Payne quickly gets on one knee and begins throwing right handed shots that land on top of Impact’s head! Xander now grabs Impact by the head and brings him up to his feet as he stands up! Xander turns Impact’s body around and locks in a sleeper hold!!! Impact is trying to break free from this submission hold! He’s grabbing at the forearms, wrists, and hands of Xander Payne, trying to pry his himself out of the submission hold!! BUT IMPACT IS LAUNCHED BACKWARDS, AS XANDER PAYNE CONNECTS WITH THE RELEASE SLEEPER SUPLEX!!!!
Eve: Impact lands hard on the back of his neck as he clutches at it in pain. Impact slowly reaches up and grabs the bottom ropes beside him and uses them to pull himself into a seated position in the corner. Meanwhile, Xander Payne makes his way over to the opposite corner! Xander Payne charges at Impact!! IRISDESCENSE!!! RUNNING KNEE STRIKE INTO THE FACE OF IMPACT SEATED IN THE CORNER!!!!!
Deadprez: NO!!! IMPACT MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND AS XANDER PAYNE CRACKED HIS KNEE UP AGAINST THAT MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE!! Xander Payne is grabbing at his knee in pain as he turns around and faces away from Impact!! Impact, still on the ground, reaches up and grabs the ring ropes to use them to help him up to his feet. Impact now walks behind Xander who is still grabbing at his knee.. AND IMPACT STOMPS DOWN INTO THE BACK OF XANDER PAYNE’S HURT KNEE!!! Xander drops down to both knees as his legs buckle!! AND IMPACT KICKS AND STOMPS XANDER PAYNE IN THE BACK AS HE FORCES HIM FACE FIRST AGAINST THE CANVAS!! Impact stands over Xander Payne and grabs at his head!! MILLENNIAL INCARCERATION!!!! IMPACT HAS THE COBRA CLUTCH LOCKED IN!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: XANDER PAYNE IS SCREAMING IN PAIN!! HE’S MOVING HIS ARMS AROUND TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO BREAK FREE!!! MEANWHILE, IMPACT IS SITTING ON TOP OF HIM AND PULLING BACK ON HIS HEAD AS HARD AS HE CAN!!! IMPACT IS SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS AS HE APPLIES AS MUCH PRESSURE AS HE CAN!!! XANDER IS GOING TO NEED TO TAP OUT!!!!
Deadprez: NO!!!! XANDER GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE RIGHT BESIDE THEM!!! HE JUST FORCED THE ROPE BREAK!! Impact now releases the pressure of his submission hold and shoves Xander Payne’s head back down into the canvas before getting off of him. Xander still has a hold of the bottom rope, as he begins to use it to help him get up to his feet. Meanwhile, Impact runs over to the far ropes! He bounces back as Xander has made it up to his hands and knees!!! RUNNING DOUBLE KNEE TO THE FACE BY IMPACT!!!
Gavin Kirkland: It connects as it sends Xander Payne through the ring ropes, but he doesn’t fall to ringside as he hangs onto that bottom rope! Instead Payne is lying flat on his back on the ring apron! Impact makes his way over to Xander and stomps down on his inside shoulder from inside the ring!! Xander clutches at that shoulder in pain as he rotates his body and get onto his hands and knees. He again grabs the bottom rope from the ring apron, but this time, with his other hand! Impact with a kick to the side of Xander Payne’s body!! He’s trying to knock Xander off of the ring apron and down to the ringside floor, but Xander is holding onto that bottom rope tight and working his way up to his feet!! Xander is now standing up as he connects with a right hand to the face of Impact!! Impact responds with a right hook of his own that lands right onto the face of Xander Payne!! Xander Payne is holding onto that top rope with his left hand to keep himself from falling off, AND HE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER RIGHT HAND ONTO IMPACT! ANOTHER RIGHT HAND BY XANDER PAYNE!!! ANOTHER!!! IMPACT IS TAKING SOME MASSIVE SHOTS BY XANDER PAYNE RIGHT NOW!!
Eve: XANDER GOING FOR ANOTHER RIGHT HAND!! NO!! Impact stepped back after each punch that was thrown, and eventually got far enough to where Xander Payne couldn’t reach him!! Xander Payne loses his balance on the ring apron as that missed punch had a lot of power behind it!! Impact takes advantage of this and connects with a SPINNING WHEEL KICK TO THE ABDOMEN!!!!

WHAT A MOVE BY THE HALL OF FAMER!!!
Deadprez: Xander Payne is down on the ringside floor. He’s slowly trying to get up as Impact is simply just watching him from inside the ring. Impact slides under the bottom rope and makes his way over to Xander Payne who is now up to his hands and knees. Impact grabs Xander by the head and pulls him in!! He lifts him up into a powerbomb position!!! AND IMPACT SLAMS XANDER PAYNE BACK FIRST INTO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR WITH A POWERBOMB!!! Impact doesn’t release Xander either, as he lifts him back up into the air! Impact turns his body as he faces the ring!!! AND IMPACT POWERBOMBS XANDER PAYNE INTO THE EDGE OF THE RING!!!! Xander Payne arches his back in pain as he instantly falls face down onto the ringside floor!! His lower back must be killing him right now!!!
Gavin Kirkland: WALLS OF IMPACT!!!!!!!! IMPACT JUST STEPPED OVER AND LOCKED IN THE WALLS OF IMPACT!!!!
Referee: One.. Two..
Deadprez: IMPACT IS WRENCHING BACK ON XANDER PAYNE’S LOWER BACK!! XANDER IS SCREAMING IN PAIN!! HE HAD JUST BEEN POWERBOMBED INTO THE EDGE OF THE RING AND IS NOW IN ONE OF THE MOST PAINFUL SUBMISSION HOLDS IN HISTORY!! HIS BACK MAY JUST SNAP!!!
Referee: Three.. Four..
Impact(Off-Mic): YOU WANT TO DISRESPECT THE WHITE MAMBA!!?!? YOU WANT TO DISRESPECT HIS GIRL TOO!?!? THERE’S CONSEQUENCES FOR SHIT LIKE THAT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: AND IMPACT IS STILL WRENCHING ON THAT LOWER BACK!!! XANDER PAYNE HAS NO WAY OF GETTING OUT!!! HE IS SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS!!!

Eve: XANDER PAYNE IS FREAKING OUT!!! HE’S TRYING TO GET IMPACT OFF OF HIM!!! HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!! AND HE’S TAPPING OUT!!!! XANDER PAYNE IS TAPPING OUT!!!!!
Deadprez: But it doesn’t make a difference Eve!! They’re not in the ring!! Xander can tap all he wants, but that isn’t going to break this submission hold!!!
Impact(Off-Mic): Keep tapping Bitch! Just keep tapping..
Gavin Kirkland: Xander Payne continues to tap out! He doesn’t realize that it isn’t doing anything at all, and Impact loves how much torture he is putting this man through!! WAIT LOOK!!! XANDER PAYNE’S TAPPING IS SLOWING DOWN!!! IT LOOKS LIKE HE’S FADING!!! IMPACT MAY HAVE PUT THIS MAN THROUGH SO MUCH PAIN THAT HE’S UNCONSCIOUS!!!! BUT IMPACT IS STILL WRENCHING ON THAT LOWER BACK!!!!!
Deadprez: Impact still has that Walls of Impact locked in! Xander Payne is out cold and Impact quickly does an over-exaggerated pull on Xander’s legs in order to force Payne’s body to bend even further!! Impact then tosses Xander Payne’s legs down to the floor. Impact then slides into the ring. Then slides back out to restart the count! Xander Payne is knocked out as Impact grabs Xander Payne and turns him onto his back. He grabs Payne by the arms and pulls him up into a seated position, then drops down, wraps his arms around Payne’s body, and lifts him up into a standing position.

(DING! DING! DING!)
(“It Follows” by Cane Hill hits, as Xander Payne stands up and gets his hand raised by the referee. Xander maintains a cold stare at Impact as he clutches at his lower back)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… PAYNEKILLER!!!! XANDER!!!! PAYNE!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: What a match by these two! Xander Payne showed how much he was willing to go through in order to defeat the 9 time world champion. He’s pissed that he isn’t the Answers World Champion and is only making more cases as to why he should be holding Mr. DEDEDE’s Answers World Championship. Sienna Jade was one of the first people to tick Xander Payne off after the Grand Rampage, and now her man is broken and beaten by the hands of Xander Payne!!
Gavin Kirkland: This is Payne for Pride 3 season. Xander Payne is going to do whatever it takes make this one a good a one!
Eve: Now that Impact is out of the picture, where does Xander Payne go from here?
Deadprez: Who knows, Eve? With someone as ruthless as Xander Payne, you never know what to expect. All I know is that you don’t want to be the man or woman standing across from him. You can use Impact as an example for that..
(The camera shows Xander Payne standing in the ring with both arms in the air as he looks down at Impact)
Xander Payne(Off-Mic): PAYNE FOR PRIDE 3 SEASON!!! BE READY!!
(Xander Payne lowers his arms and walks over to the side of the ring before exiting through the ropes. Xander Payne raises his right arm in the air once more as he stays facing away from the ring on his way up the ramp. After a few short moments, the screen fades to black.)
(Odyssey returns and the next match flashes across the screen.)
(The camera fades back to the arena, where Gina Romano is seen standing in the middle of the ring, ready to announce the next match.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen… The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!!! And it is for the EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP!!
(‘Cry Little Sister’ by Marilyn Manson hits, and after a few moments Kasey Kaos makes her way to the stage as smoke fills the empty, dimly lit arena. Kasey has her arms open wide, before beginning to crawl up to one of the camera men, causing them to slowly back up in fear until she gets back up and gets in front of the camera, before beginning to laugh. She pushes the camera to the side, before making her way down the ramp, keeping that same grin on her face, despite cleaely being focused for her first ever World Championship match.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first… From London, England… Weighing in at 130 pounds…. MISS MAYHEM, KAAAAAAAAASEEEYYYYYY KKAAAOOOOOSSSSS!!!!!!
Deadprez: Kasey Kaos has been on fire these past few months, and I have to say she may be on track to becoming one of the fastest rising stars in EAW today. She had one of the greatest performances at Grand Rampage this year, and that amazing performance led to her getting this huge opportunity against the Universal Women’s Champion, Minerva.
Eve: Yeah, Kasey hasn’t been here for very long, but she made an impact very quickly. Kasey’s chaotic nature might honestly be what’s needed to take on someone like Minerva, especially knowing that Minerva has never been the type of competitor to really stick to the rulebook. Obviously I may be a bit biased towards Showdown here with who I think will win, but I can’t lie. Kasey Kaos has an amazing chance of walking out with the title tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: You know, I heard Charlie Marr ask a very valid question during Grand Rampage week, and that question is, since Kasey is a schizophrenic, would it count as a threesome if-
Gavin Kirkland: Fine, I’ll get to the bottom of it though.
(Kasey gets into the ring and stands in the far corner, waiting as ‘Children of the Son’ by Pipe Choir hits. The lights go out, and soon after Minerva steps out to the stage, as a single spotlight is lit on her. She kneels on the stage, looking down at her Universal Women’s Championship, before beginning to walk down the ramp. She looks right at Kasey Kaos, and both Minerva and Kasey don’t break eye contact for a good while. It’s clear the two are taking this match very seriously, and as Minerva climbs onto the apron, she raises up her Championship.)
Gina Romano: And her opponent….. From Coyote Flats, Texas…. Weighing in at 122 pounds… SHE IS THE EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, THE GIPSY MOTH, MIIIIIIIINNEEERRRRVVVAAAAAA!!!!!!!
Deadprez: At Grand Rampage Minerva managed to defend her Championship against Raven Roberts, but it wasn’t without controversy. Some may say Raven was even screwed out of the Championship, as while Minerva pinned Raven, the referee didn’t notice the clear rope break. This time, I’ll be honest, I don’t expect the same thing to occur. Kasey Kaos is extremely talented, but I don’t believe that Minerva isn’t capable of winning this match. Not to tear Kasey down or anything of course. The way I see it, this match has every chance of going either way, but I know for a fact it can’t end the same way Raven versus Minerva did.
Eve: I think Minerva’s rise here is something that nobody can deny. She grew into one of the top Elitists in the company so quickly, it almost felt like it happened overnight. Even so, Kasey has grown very quickly as well, as she’s only been here for months. Kasey hasn’t had an opportunity like this, and while I don’t know if that’ll work to her favor or to her detriment, I can say this. No matter who wins this match, this is gonna be one hell of a fight put up by these two.
Gavin Kirkland: I’m on team Minerva. Minerva made it this far, there’s just no way she’s losing her title right before Pain for Pride. Kasey is pretty cool but Minerva is an entirely different beast. Nobody is stopping her.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: And here we go! The Universal Women’s Championship match! Minerva versus Kasey Kaos, this is it- AND KASEY KAOS CHARGES RIGHT AFTER MINERVA! KASEY WASTING NO TIME HERE AND SHE ATTEMPTS TO HIT MINERVA WITH A LARIAT, BUT MINERVA DUCKS IT! KASEY THOUGH, MANAGING TO HIT MINERVA WITH A BACK ELBOW JUST AS MINERVA TURNED BACK TOWARDS HER! KASEY NOW WITH A KNEE TO MINERVA’S MIDSECTION, AND NOW SHE SENDS MINERVA SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST! KASEY NOW RUNNING THE ROPES, AND SHE DROPKICKS MINERVA THROUGH THE ROPES OUT OF THE RING! KASEY IS ALREADY TAKING THE FIGHT TO MINERVA RIGHT OUT THE GATE!
Eve: Minerva is getting back to her feet, and clearly it looks like she’s been caught off guard by Kasey’s sudden offense right at the beginning of the match- AND WAIT A SECOND! KASEY KAOS IS AT THE TOP ROPE! KASEY DIVES OFF THE TOP, AND SHE HITS MINERVA WITH A DIVING CROSSBODY! WHAT ARE WE SEEING HERE!? KASEY KAOS IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW! KASEY PICKING MINERVA UP NOW, AND NOW SHE SENDS HER INTO THE RING POST! KASEY NOT FINISHED YET AS SHE PICKS MINERVA BACK UP, AND DRIVES HER INTO THE RING APRON!
Gavin Kirkland: Poor Minerva, she’s not looking to be in the best shape right now! Kasey rolling Minerva back into the ring now, and Kasey now heads up to the top rope! Minerva slowly getting back up to her feet- AND NOW KASEY WITH A DOUBLE AXE- NO! MINERVA WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE IN MID-AIR, AND NOW SHE GRABS KASEY FROM BEHIND, AND LOOK AT THE POWER OF MINERVA! RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! Minerva picking Kasey up off the mat now, AND SHE MANAGES TO PULL HER UP, BEFORE DROPPING HER DOWN INTO THE MAT WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX! THE BEAUTIFUL MINERVA WITH THE COVER AFTER TWO DIFFERENT SUPLEXES!
Deadprez: Kasey kicks out! It’s clearly gonna take more than that if Minerva wants to retain her title tonight, and it looks like she’s about to do that now as she locks Kasey in a grounded headlock, BUT SHE DOESN’T STOP THERE AS SHE HITS KASEY WITH A PUNCH TO THE FACE! WAIT, THERE’S ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! MINERVA IS REPEATEDLY JUST PUNCHING KASEY OVER AND OVER, AND ALREADY IT LOOKS LIKE BLOOD MAY BE BEGINNING TO POUR FROM HER NOSE, THE REFEREE ALREADY MIGHT NEED TO STOP THIS-
Eve: KASEY CATCHES MINERVA’S ARM! KASEY NOW WITH A HUGE STRIKE TO MINERVA’S FACE, AND THAT CAUSES MINERVA TO RELEASE THE HEADLOCK! BOTH WOMEN NOW GETTING BACK TO THEIR FEET, AND KASEY KICKS MINERVA IN THE MIDSECTION BEFORE RUNNING THE ROPES, AND THERE’S A FLOAT OVER NECKBREAKER- NO! MINERVA WAS ABLE TO PUSH KASEY AWAY BEFORE PULLING HER BACK TOWARDS HER! MINERVA NOW GOING FOR A BACK SUPLEX ON KASEY- BUT KASEY MANAGES TO FLIP ONTO HER FEET BEFORE HITTING A DROPKICK TO MINERVA’S BACK!
Gavin Kirkland: Minerva was forced to roll out to the apron after that dropkick, and now Kasey is trying to pull her up- BUT MINERVA JUST JAMMED HER THUMB INTO HER EYE! KASEY WAS BLOCKING THE REFEREE’S VIEW SO HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT JUST HAPPENED, BUT NOW MINERVA IS PULLING KASEY OVER THE TOP ROPE! MINERVA MANAGES TO PULL KASEY ONTO THE RING APRON, AND NOW SHE SENDS HER INTO THE RING POST! KASEY FALLING OFF THE APRON AFTER THAT, AND IT LOOKS LIKE MINERVA NOW HAS REGAINED CONTROL OF THE MATCH! Minerva grabbing Kasey now, AND SHE REPEATEDLY BASHES HER FACE INTO THE RING POST!
Deadprez: KASEY HITS MINERVA WITH A BACK ELBOW! KASEY GRABBING MINERVA NOW, AND SHE SENDS HER INTO THE STEEL STEPS! THE REFEREE BEGINNING HIS COUNT NOW, BUT CLEARLY KASEY DOESN’T CARE ABOUT IT YET AS SHE CONTINUES TO GO AFTER MINERVA! KASEY GRABS MINERVA AND SLOWLY PICKS HER UP, BEFORE BASHING HER FACE ONTO THE CORNER OF THE STEEL STEPS!!! KASEY NOW STOPPING THERE, AS SHE DOES IT A SECOND TIME! AND A THIRD TIME!! KASEY PICKING MINERVA UP NOW, AND SHE SENDS HER RIGHT INTO THE CORNER OF OUR TABLE, AND JUST LOOK AT MINERVA’S FACE! BLOOD IS POURING FROM HER FOREHEAD, MINERVA IS IN A LOT OF TROUBLE RIGHT NOW!
Eve: Kasey rolling Minerva back into the ring before following behind, and what is Kasey thinking here? Kasey is grabbing Minerva and forcing her to bite down on the ropes- BEFORE STOMPING RIGHT ONTO HER HEAD! THAT WAS BARELY LEGAL AS KASEY MANAGED TO DO IT BEFORE THE COUNT OF FIVE, BUT NOW KASEY GOES FOR A COVER AND MINERVA MAY ALREADY BE OUT OF THIS! WHAT A BRUTAL STOMP BY KASEY KAOS!
Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Our beautiful Universal Women’s Champion is still in this match, and honestly part of me is a bit surprised after what Kasey just did to her! Minerva trying to grab the ropes to get back to her feet- BUT KASEY JUST PUNT KICKED HER IN THE MIDSECTION! Kasey pulling Minerva up herself now, and now she irish whips her into the corner before charging in, AND SHE HITS MINERVA WITH A RUNNING BACK ELBOW! KASEY GRABBING MINERVA, AND THERE’S A HAIRMARE! KASEY WITH A SNAPMARE GRABBING MINERVA BY HER HAIR, AND NOW SHE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD-
Deadprez: MINERVA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! MINERVA QUICKLY GETTING TO HER FEET BEFORE GRABBING KASEY BY THE ARM, AND MINERVA HITS KASEY WITH A SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE! MINERVA NOT FINISHED THERE AS SHE PULLS KASEY BACK UP, AND SHE HITS A SECOND SHORT ARM CLOTHESLINE! MINERVA PULLING KASEY UP ONCE MORE, BUT THIS TIME SHE DOESN’T PULL HER INTO A CLOTHESLINE, INSTEAD SHE IRISH WHIPS HER INTO THE ROPES, AND CONNECTS WITH A SPINEBUSTER JUST AS KASEY REBOUNDED OFF OF THE ROPES! MINERVA NOT GOING FOR THE COVER YET, INSTEAD SHE IS GRABBING KASEY BY THE HEAD, AND- OH MY GOD!
Eve: MINERVA IS JUST REPEATEDLY HEADBUTTING KASEY! THAT’S PROBABLY NOT THE BEST IDEA AFTER WHAT KASEY DID TO MINERVA OUTSIDE OF THE RING, BUT MINERVA CLEARLY DOESN’T CARE AT ALL! MINERVA WITH ONE MORE HUGE HEADBUTT, AND KASEY LOOKS OUT OF IT BUT MINERVA STILL ISN’T GOING FOR THE COVER! INSTEAD MINERVA IS DRAGGING KASEY NEAR THE CORNER, AND NOW, HELL’S BELLS BY MINERVA!! IT ACTUALLY CONNECTED THIS EARLY ON INTO THE MATCH! KASEY WAS JUST HIT WITH THAT ARABIAN PRESS MOONSAULT, AND NOW I THINK THIS MATCH IS OVER, MINERVA IS GOING FOR THE PIN, TO RETAIN HER CHAMPIONSHIP!!
Gavin Kirkland: KASEY MANAGES TO GET THE SHOULDER UP, BUT MINERVA JUST GOT BACK TO HER FEET AND STOMPED RIGHT ONTO THAT SAME SHOULDER! MINERVA NOW GRABBING KASEY BY THE ARMS, AND NOW SHE SETS UP FOR THAT GROUNDED BRIDGING DOUBLE CHICKENWING, AND I THINK THAT’S IT! THE OWL OF MINERVA IS LOCKED IN JUST AFTER MINERVA HIT THE HELL’S BELLS, AND IS KASEY GONNA HAVE TO TAP OUT!? Kasey is trapped in this submission, and if this wasn’t a Championship match I’d call her lucky, but right now she might be on the verge of losing out on what could be her first Championship in EAW!
Deadprez: KASEY IS TRYING TO ROLL ONTO HER BACK, BUT MINERVA IS DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO STOP KASEY FROM DOING SO! THE OWL OF MINERVA IS A DIFFICULT SUBMISSION TO GET OUT OF, AND AT THIS RATE KASEY MIGHT NOT GET OUT OF IT AT ALL! NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, BEING IN A SUBMISSION LIKE THIS WILL HURT, AND YOU CAN ONLY TAKE SO MUCH UNTIL YOU’RE FORCED TO GIVE UP! UNLESS KASEY IS ABLE TO ROLL ONTO HER BACK AND EITHER POWER OUT OF MINERVA’S ARMS OR PULL HERSELF TO THE ROPES, SHE’LL HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO TAP OUT!
Eve: KASEY LOOKS LIKE SHE’S BEGINNING TO FIGHT LESS AND LESS! AS TIME GOES ON YOU CAN TELL SHE’S GETTING WEAKER, AND WE MIGHT ALREADY BE APPROACHING THE END OF THIS MATCH! MINERVA IS A VERY TOUGH OPPONENT TO FACE, SO WHILE THIS HASN’T BEEN VERY LONG, KASEY DID A GREAT JOB AGAINST THE CHAMPION! I DON’T THINK KASEY HAS MUCH LEFT, I THINK THE BELL IS HONESTLY GONNA HAVE TO RING SOON, THERE’S JUST NO WAY KASEY HAS ANYTHING LEFT! IT LOOKS LIKE THE REFEREE IS GOING TO CHECK ON KASEY NOW, AND-
Gavin Kirkland: SHE DOES IT! KASEY MANAGED TO ROLL ONTO HER BACK BEFORE FREEING HER ARM, AND SHE JUST ELBOWED MINERVA IN THE FACE! KASEY WITH A SECOND ELBOW, AND NOW THE THIRD ELBOW FULLY FREES KASEY FROM MINERVA’S GRASP! KASEY NOW IS GETTING BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE GOING AFTER MINERVA WHO’S IN THE CORNER, AND NOW KASEY IS JUST STOMPING AWAY AT HER! KASEY IS JUST STOMPING MINERVA OUT, AND NOW MINERVA IS IN A SEATED POSITION IN THE CORNER AS KASEY BACKS UP INTO THE OPPOSITE CORNER BEFORE CHARGING IN! RUNNING CANNONBALL SENTON BY KASEY!
Deadprez: KASEY DRAGGING MINERVA OUT OF THE CORNER BEFORE HITTING A SNAP ELBOW DROP, AND KASEY DOESN’T GO FOR A COVER! INSTEAD SHE HEADS UP TO THE TOP ROPE, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S AIMING FOR SOMETHING MUCH BIGGER HERE! MINERVA IS USING THE ROPES TO PULL HERSELF TO HER FEET, BUT I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S THE BEST IDEA HERE! KASEY LOOKS READY FOR MINERVA TO GET UP, THIS COULD BE BAD! MINERVA GETS BACK TO HER FEET, AND NOW KASEY DIVES!! DEATH OR GLORY-
Eve: THE DEATH OR GLORY DOESN’T CONNECT!! KASEY ATTEMPTED TO HIT THE DIVING HURRICANRANA, BUT MINERVA MANAGED TO STOP THAT FROM HAPPENING, AND NOW SHE JUST HAS KASEY IN A POWERBOMB POSITION! KASEY IS DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO TRY AND FIGHT OUT OF IF, BUT I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S GONNA BE ENOUGH! MINERVA SETTING HER SIGHTS TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLES, MEANWHILE KASEY IS JUST PUNCHING AND PUNCHING, TRYING TO GET MINERVA TO LET GO! THE FACT THAT MINERVA ISN’T LETTING GO AFTER TAKING ALL THESE PUNCHES BY KASEY IS INCREDIBLE, AND NOW MINERVA IS CHARGING INTO THE CORNER! BUCKLE BOMB-
Gavin Kirkland: NO! THE BUCKLE BOMB DOESN’T CONNECT, KASEY JUST HIT A SUNSET FLIP RIGHT BEFORE MINERVA COULD HIT THE BUCKLE BOMB! NO, KASEY IS GONNA STEAL THE TITLE!!
Gavin Kirkland: YES EMO BABE IS STILL IN THIS! MINERVA KICKED OUT, AND SHE JUST HIT A HUGE PENALTY KICK TO KASEY’S CHEST BEFORE KASEY EVEN HAD A CHANCE OF GETTING BACK TO HER FEET! That was close though, half a second longer and Kasey would’ve been the new Universal Women’s Champion! Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that she’s not attractive or anything, but that whole schizophrenic thing she’s got going on is a bit weird if you ask me. Although now that I think about it, maybe that’d actually be-
Deadprez: Anyways, Minerva is pulling Kasey to her feet, and now she grabs her by the arm and pulls her in- JUST FOR KASEY TO HIT A HUGE FOREARM STRIKE! MINERVA GOING FOR ONE OF HER OWN, BUT KASEY CATCHES MINERVA’S ARM BEFORE KICKING HER IN THE MIDSECTION! KASEY NOW GRABBING MINERVA AND PUTTING HER IN A FRONT FACELOCK, BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! KASEY ROLLING BACK ONTO HER FEET, STILL HOLDING MINERVA, AND SHE HITS A SECOND CONSECUTIVE SUPLEX! THAT’S TWO IN A ROW, AND NOW KASEY ROLLS BACK TO HER FEET, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S AIMING TO HIT ONE MORE!
Eve: MINERVA WITH A KNEE TO KASEY’S HEAD! KASEY DROPPING DOWN TO A KNEE WHILE HOLDING HER HEAD IN PAIN, BUT THAT’S ENOUGH TO ALLOW MINERVA TO CAPITALIZE, AS SHE HITS KASEY WITH A SCISSORS KIC- NO! KASEY AVOIDED THE SCISSORS KICK, AND NOW SHE GRABS MINERVA FROM BEHIND!! LONDON CALLING!!!! THE LONDON CALLING CONNECTS, KASEY JUST PLANTED MINERVA WITH THAT REVERSE DDT, AND THIS MAY BE IT! KASEY WITH THE COVER TO WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP!!
Gavin Kirkland: YES! MINERVA STAYS ALIVE ONCE AGAIN!!! KASEY CAN’T BELIEVE IT BUT I CAN! MINERVA IS STILL IN THIS MATCH GUYS! MINERVA IS STILL THE CHAMPION- BUT NOW IT LOOKS LIKE KASEY HAS SNAPPED! KASEY JUST GRABBED MINERVA’S ARMS, AND NOW SHE’S JUST STOMPING A HOLE IN HER! KASEY GRABBING MINERVA NOW, AND JUST LIKE AT THE START OF THIS MATCH KASEY SENDS MINERVA INTO THE RING POST, BUT NOW SHE ISN’T STOPPING! KASEY REPEATEDLY SENDING MINERVA SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE POST, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, AND IF KASEY CONTINUES LIKE THIS MINERVA COULD BE SERIOUSLY HURT! MINERVA NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!
Deadprez: Kasey has definitely snapped alright! Minerva pulling herself out of the corner now, AND KASEY RUNS THE ROPES! KASEY ATTEMPTS A LARIAT- BUT MINERVA DUCKS IT BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A STEP-UP ENZUIGIRI! MINERVA HONESTLY LOOKS ALMOST DESPERATE HERE! KASEY IS STILL ON HER FEET, BUT NOW MINERVA PICKS HER UP, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S SETTING UP FOR THE PRINCESS KILLER- BUT KASEY MANAGES TO SLIP BEHIND HER BEFORE PUSHING HER AWAY! KASEY CHARGING IN, LOOKING TO SEND HER OVER THE TOP ROPE, BUT MINERVA PULLS DOWN THE ROPES!! KASEY WAS JUST SENT OUT OF THE RING!
Eve: Minerva is getting back to her feet, and it looks like Minerva used Kasey’s anger to her advantage here as she managed to send Kasey right out of the ring! Kasey is getting back to her feet, BUT MINERVA TAKES HER RIGHT BACK DOWN, PULLING HERSELF THROUGH THE ROPES WITH A DROPKICK! THAT DROPKICK SENT KASEY RIGHT INTO THE BARRICADE, AND NOW MINERVA IS LOOKING TO DO EVEN MORE DAMAGE AS SHE GRABS KASEY KAOS AND PULLS HER TO HER FEET, AND NOW I THINK SHE’S TRYING TO PULL HER UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION-
Gavin Kirkland: BUT KASEY WITH A BACK BODY DROP OVER THE BARRICADE! MINERVA WAS JUST SENT INTO THE CHAIRS IN THE FRONT ROW, AND THE REFEREE HAS ALREADY REACHED A COUNT OF THREE, BUT NEITHER COMPETITOR IS STANDING! THE REFEREE AT A COUNT OF FOUR, AND KASEY IS CRAWLING BACK INTO THE RING, BUT SHE CAN’T WIN THE TITLE BY COUNT OUT! SHE CAN ONLY WIN BY PINFALL OR SUBMISSION! MINERVA LOOKS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT, THERE’S NO WAY SHE’LL MAKE IT BACK INTO THE RING IN TIME! KASEY ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING, BUT WAIT! SHE RESTARTS THE COUNT AT A COUNT OF FIVE! KASEY ISN’T FINISHED YET!
Deadprez: I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing for Minerva. Minerva might be safe from getting counted out, but I’m worried to see what Kasey has in store for her! Kasey grabbing Minerva, AND SHE PULLS HER UP OVER THE BARRICADE, WITH A SUPLEX ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! KASEY ROLLING MINERVA BACK INTO THE RING, AND NOW SHE’S HEADING UP TO THE TOP ROPE! MINERVA HASN’T MOVED, I THINK KASEY IS ABOUT TO FINISH OFF THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION! KASEY NOW, WITH A DIVING ELBOW DROP-
Eve: IT DOESN’T CONNECT! MINERVA WAS JUST BARELY ABLE TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY! ONCE AGAIN MINERVA MANAGED TO FIND A WAY TO GET THE BETTER OF KASEY, AS SHE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY TO AVOID THE DIVING ELBOW! MINERVA IS DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO PULL HERSELF TO HER FEET USING THE ROPES, AND NOW SHE’S LOOKING TO CAPITALIZE AS KASEY SLOWLY FOLLOWS! MINERVA GRABBING KASEY FROM BEHIND, AND SHE PLANTS HER WITH THE TWILIGHT!!! THE INVERTED FACELOCK ELBOW CONNECTS!! MINERVA WITH THE COVER, AND SURELY THAT’S GOTTA BE IT! THERE’S NO WAY KASEY HAS ANYTHING LEFT!
Gavin Kirkland: KASEY KICKS OUT!!! KASEY JUST MANAGED TO GET THE SHOULDER UP!! MINERVA CAN’T BELIEVE HER EYES, BUT SHE KNOWS THAT IF SHE WANTS TO HEAD INTO PAIN FOR PRIDE AS THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, SHE NEEDS TO KEEP GOING! SHE CAN’T GIVE KASEY A SECOND TO BREATHE OR SHE’LL FIND A WAY TO COME BACK! MINERVA PICKING KASEY UP, AND THANK GOD, IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S LOOKING TO PUT KASEY AWAY NOW! MINERVA WITH THE FRONT FACELOCK, AND NOW SHE SETS IT UP! SEEDS OF EVIL BY MINERVA!
Deadprez: NO, NO IT DOESN’T CONNECT! KASEY MANAGES TO GET OUT OF IT! KASEY MANAGED TO FREE HER LEGS ONCE MINERVA PULLED HER INTO THE AIR, AND THAT ALLOWED KASEY TO LAND ON HER FEET BEFORE HITTING MINERVA WITH AN ENZUIGIRI, CAUSING BOTH COMPETITORS TO DROP TO THE MAT! Gavin for once I have to agree with you, giving Kasey even a second to breathe is dangerous as she will find a way to come back, and that’s what just happened here! Somehow Kasey Kaos is staying in this match even after getting hit with Twilight! Kasey is crawling into the corner now, and at the moment it looks like this match may be hers to take!
Eve: Minerva was able to get to a knee, BUT KASEY IS ALREADY UP! KASEY CHARGING TOWARDS MINERVA! CHERRY BOMB- WAIT NO! MINERVA ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY FROM THAT SHINING WIZARD! BOTH COMPETITORS GET BACK TO THEIR FEET AND KASEY CHARGES BACK TOWARDS MINERVA, BUT MINERVA HITS KASEY WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE! KASEY STUMBLING BACK, AND NOW IT’S MINERVA THAT CHARGES IN- JUST FOR KASEY TO DROP HER WITH A SIT OUT SPINEBUSTER, BUT SHE ISN’T FINISHING THERE! KASEY IS GRABBING MINERVA BY THE ARM, AND A WHILE AGO THAT SAME SHOULDER WAS REPEATEDLY DRIVEN INTO THE RINGPOST BY KASEY! KASEY NOW, WITH A FUJIWARA ARMBAR!!
Gavin Kirkland: OH NO, NOW THIS IS BAD!! MINERVA’S SHOULDER MIGHT STILL BE IN PAIN AFTER WHAT KASEY DID EARLIER! NOW KASEY HAS HER IN A FUJIWARA ARMBAR, AND WHILE I WANT TO HAVE FAITH IN MINERVA, CAN SHE REALLY TAKE ALL OF THIS!? SHE HAS TO TAP, SHE JUST HAS TO! IF MINERVA DOESN’T TAP OUT SHE MAY END UP INJURED, AND IF THAT HAPPENS THEN SHE MIGHT NOT EVEN MAKE IT TO PAIN FOR PRIDE! MINERVA IS TRYING TO PULL HERSELF TO THE ROPES, BUT SHE IS SO FAR, CAN SHE REALLY TAKE THE PAIN FOR THIS LONG!?
Deadprez: With all the blood pouring down Minerva’s face from earlier, I honestly don’t know how much she could possibly have left! Surely blood loss has got to be a factor in Minerva’s ability to perform here as that cut on her head looks much worse than the nosebleed Kasey is suffering from! Minerva is doing everything she can to pull herself to the ropes, but if she keeps going like this she might honestly end up passing out! MINERVA IS GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER, BUT AT THIS POINT YOU CAN TELL SHE’S STARTING TO FIGHT LESS AND LESS! I THINK KASEY IS GOING TO DO IT! KASEY IS ABOUT TO WIN THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP BY SUBMISSION-
Eve: MINERVA MANAGES TO PULL KASEY DOWN INTO A PIN!
Eve: KASEY MANAGES TO KICK OUT, BUT AS SOON AS BOTH WOMEN GET BACK UP KASEY JUMPS ONTO MINERVA AND LOCKS IN A GUILLOTINE CHOKE! MINERVA IS STILL IN TROUBLE!!! KASEY HAS THE BODY SCISSORS APPLIED, AND MINERVA IS DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN IN ORDER TO STAY ON HER FEET, BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG THAT’S GONNA LAST! MINERVA IS IN SERIOUS JEOPARDY HERE OF LOSING HER TITLE!
Gavin Kirkland: :noah: COME ON MINERVA PLEASE GET OUT OF THIS! MINERVA IS TRYING TO REACH OUT TO GRAB THE ROPES, BUT THAT JUST CAUSED HER TO DROP DOWN TO HER KNEES! KASEY HAS MANAGED TO BRING MINERVA DOWN TO THE MAT, AND NOW THIS SUBMISSION IS GOING TO BE MORE DIFFICULT THAN EVER FOR MINERVA TO ESCAPE! MINERVA IS ALREADY LOSING A TON OF BLOOD AFTER HAVING HER HEAD SMASHED INTO THE STEEL STEPS, AND NOW I’VE GOT TO IMAGINE THAT SHE CAN’T GO MUCH FURTHER! IT ALREADY LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GETTING WEAKER AND WEAKER, JUST CALL FOR THE BELL ALREADY!
Deadprez: WAIT, MINERVA IS GETTING BACK UP! MINERVA IS PULLING HERSELF BACK TO HER FEET! MINERVA IS GETTING BACK UP, AND NOW SHE RUNS RIGHT TOWARDS THE CORNER, RAMMING KASEY INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!!! MINERVA NOW PICKING KASEY UP AFTER THAT GUILLOTINE CHOKE WAS RELEASED, WASTING NO TIME WHATSOEVER! THE PRINCESS KILLER BY MINERVA!!!! THE PRINCESS KILLER, THAT SPINNING, JUMPING TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER CONNECTS THIS TIME AND I THINK THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE! MINERVA JUST BARELY MANAGING TO PIN KASEY, IS THAT IT!? DOES MINERVA RETAIN THE TITLE!?
Gavin Kirkland: YES!! THAT’S IT! MINERVA RETAINS!
Eve: NO SHE DOESN’T!!! LOOK!!! KASEY’S ARM, KASEY’S ARM WAS JUST BARELY UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE!! THE REFEREE IS TELLING MINERVA THAT THE MATCH IS STILL ON, AND SHE CAN’T BELIEVE IT! KASEY KAOS JUST BARELY MANAGED TO GET HER ARM UNDER THE ROPE BECAUSE MINERVA DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH LEFT IN HER TO PULL HER AWAY! KASEY KAOS HAS SURVIVED THE PRINCESS KILLER, AND BECAUSE OF THAT, KASEY STILL HAS A CHANCE TO WIN THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP! I honestly feel bad for Minerva here! That was her best chance to win, and now I don’t know what she even has left!
Gavin Kirkland: This honestly isn’t fair! It’s not fair at all! Kasey got lucky there! Had she been just a few inches away Minerva would still be the Universal Women’s Champion, but now this match may still go either way! Minerva is slowly getting back to her feet, and she’s clearly frustrated but she’s brushing what just happened off so she can focus on finishing this match for good! Minerva pulling Kasey in, AND THERE’S THE BLACK WEDDING!!! THAT’S IT!
Deadprez: NO! THIS MAY BE IT, BUT THE BLACK WEDDING DIDN’T CONNECT! KASEY ROLLED OUT OF IT, AND PULLED MINERVA INTO A SMALL PACKAGE ROLL UP!
Deadprez: MINERVA KICKS OUT, AND AS SOON AS SHE GETS UP SHE HITS KASEY WITH A KNEE TO THE FACE! KASEY IS STILL OUT OF IT, BUT EVEN SO SHE NEARLY STOLE THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP! That was an extremely close call for Minerva, but I think Minerva is clearly tired of these close calls as now she’s immediately setting up for another big move! MINERVA SETTING UP FOR THE SEEDS OF EVIL AGAIN!
Eve: KASEY MANAGES TO ESCAPE IT ONCE AGAIN! KASEY WITH A HUGE KICK- BUT IT JUST SENT MINERVA CRASHING INTO THE REFEREE! THE REFEREE IS DOWN! KASEY CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT JUST HAPPENED! THE REFEREE WAS JUST NOW TAKEN OUT BY MINERVA, IT LOOKS LIKE MINERVA ACCIDENTALLY ELBOWED THE REFEREE IN THE FACE AFTER GETTING HIT WITH THAT BOOT, BUT NOW WHAT!? WHO’S SUPPOSED TO CALL THE MATCH!?
Gavin Kirkland: I really wish I was that referee, just saying. Kasey now grabbing Minerva and- THE DARK!!!!
Deadprez: NO!! THE MIST DOESN’T CONNECT!!! KASEY SAW IT COMING!! KASEY JUST SLAPPED MINERVA IN THE FACE JUST AS SHE SPIT OUT THE MIST, CAUSING IT TO HIT ABSOLUTELY NOBODY! MINERVA IS IN SHOCK- AND NOW KASEY JUST RAKING MINERVA’S EYES, PAYBACK FOR THAT EYE POKE FROM EARLIER! MINERVA DROPPING TO A KNEE AS SHE HOLDS HER EYES IN PAIN, AND NOW KASEY RUNS THE ROPES!! CHERRY BOMB TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD!!! KASEY JUST HIT MINERVA WITH A SHINING WIZARD TO THE BACK OF HER HEAD, BUT THERE’S NO REFEREE TO MAKE THE COVER! IT LOOKS LIKE KASEY IS ALREADY AWARE OF THIS AS SHE EXITS THE RING, BUT WHAT IS SHE DOING!?
Eve: Oh my God. Kasey is removing the padding from ringside, revealing the concrete flooring underneath. Kasey, what are you doing? Had the referee been up surely this would be too far, but right now it looks like anything goes! Kasey is pulling Minerva out of the ring, and this could be bad if she’s aiming to do what I think she’s trying to do! KASEY IS TRYING TO PICK MINERVA UP INTO A POWERBOMB POSITION! KASEY IS ABOUT TO POWERBOMB MINERVA ONTO CONCRETE! MINERVA NEEDS TO GET OUT OF THIS OR SHE’S GONNA BE DONE FOR! KASEY APPROACHING THE CONCRETE FLOORING, AND I THINK THIS IS IT!
Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA MANAGES TO LAND ON HER FEET! JUST AS KASEY LET GO OF MINERVA, MINERVA MANAGED TO SOMEHOW JUMP ONTO HER FEET! MINERVA IS FIGHTING BACK NOW, AND IT LOOKS LIKE KASEY’S ATTEMPT TO POSSIBLY INJURE MINERVA DIDN’T WORK! MINERVA GRABBING KASEY NOW, AND SHE RAMS HER RIGHT INTO THE RING APRON! LET’S GO MINERVA! MINERVA NOW PICKING KASEY UP, AND I THINK SHE’S AIMING TO HIT THE PRINCESS KILLER AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME IN A MUCH GREATER FASHION AS SHE APPROACHES THE CONCRETE FLOORING! THIS IS IT, GOOD NIGHT KASEY KAOS!
Deadprez: KASEY SLIPS BEHIND MINERVA, AND SHE PULLS MINERVA’S HEAD DOWN WITH HER!! LONDON CALLING!!! KASEY JUST HIT MINERVA WITH THE INVERTED DDT RIGHT ONTO THE CONCRETE FLOOR!!! THAT’S IT, THAT’S GOTTA BE IT!! SURELY THAT HAS TO HAVE RESULTED IN A CONCUSSION, OR EVEN WORSE! THERE’S NO WAY MINERVA CAN CONTINUE AFTER THAT! KASEY ROLLING MINERVA BACK INTO THE RING BEFORE SLIDING IN HERSELF, AND THE REFEREE IS SLOWLY STIRRING!!! KASEY KAOS IS ALREADY ABOUT TO NOT ONLY BECOME A CHAMPION, BUT SHE IS ABOUT TO BECOME THE NEW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION THIS EARLY INTO HER EAW CAREER! THE REFEREE IS UP, THE COVER BY KASEY!
Eve:…..DID MINERVA JUST KICK OUT!?!?!? HOW!?!?!? HOW DID MINERVA KICK OUT!?!? THIS MATCH SHOULD HONESTLY BE OVER RIGHT NOW, HOW DOES MINERVA STILL HAVE THIS MUCH LEFT IN HER!?!? Kasey clearly doesn’t even have enough left in her to react to what just happened, but I can tell the word frustrated is a severe understatement of how she’s feeling right now! She just hit one of her best moves onto concrete, and somehow that still wasn’t enough to get the job done! You can argue that the referee’s slow count due to being hurt played a part in it, but there’s no way Minerva should even be conscious right now!
Gavin Kirkland: This is why I’ve been on team Minerva this whole time. Kasey is cool and all, but Minerva is Minerva. That’s all there really is to say about it.
Eve: Am I really supposed to believe you like Minerva for her wrestling?
Gavin Kirkland: Believe what you want Eve. Minerva is still the Universal Women’s Champion and as it stands right now, there’s nothing that can be done to change that.
Deadprez: I don’t know Gavin, she may have kicked out of that, but what does she really have left? Kasey is pulling Minerva up to her feet now, and she drags her into the corner, BEFORE HITTING HER WITH AN OPEN HAND CHEST SLAP!! DID YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF THAT!? Kasey now with a hair pulling snapmare, or a “hairmare” as she calls it before running the ropes, AND SHE HITS MINERVA WITH A BOOT TO THE FACE! KASEY IS DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE MINERVA HAS NOTHING LEFT IN HER, AND NOW I THINK THIS IS IT! KASEY GOING FOR THAT SUBMISSION OF HERS! KAOS REIGNS!!!
Eve: THE KAOS REIGNS IS LOCKED IN AND MINERVA IS BARELY ABLE TO STAY CONSCIOUS! MINERVA IS FLAILING HER ARMS, TRYING TO DO WHATEVER SHE CAN TO GET OUT OF THE KAOS REIGNS, BUT I DON’T THINK IT’S POSSIBLE! MINERVA IS TRAPPED IN THE KAOS REIGNS WITH NO WAY OUT, I THINK THIS IS IT! I THINK MINERVA MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE TO TAP OUT HERE! MINERVA IS TRYING TO REACH OUT FOR THE ROPES, BUT KASEY MANAGES TO PULL HER DOWN INTO THE BODY SCISSORS!! MINERVA CAN’T ESCAPE, THAT’S IT! THIS HAS TO BE IT!
Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA IS REACHING OUT TO THE ROPES, AND SHE’S SO CLOSE TO MAKING IT, BUT SHE’S JUST BARELY TOO FAR AWAY! KASEY HAS THE SUBMISSION APPLIED AS TIGHTLY AS SHE POSSIBLY CAN, AND I REALLY HATE TO SAY IT, BUT THIS MIGHT ACTUALLY BE IT! MINERVA MIGHT BE DONE FOR HERE, I DON’T SEE A WAY FOR HER TO CONTINUE! AFTER EVERYTHING MINERVA HAS BEEN THROUGH IN THIS MATCH, I THINK THIS IS IT! MINERVA MIGHT HONESTLY BE OUT OF IT! THE REFEREE IS CHECKING ON HER NOW, AND HE PICKS UP THE ARM FOR A FIRST TIME AND IT DROPS! THIS IS WORRYING! THE REFEREE PICKS IT UP FOR A SECOND TIME-
Deadprez: BUT BEFORE IT COULD EVEN DROP A SECOND TIME, MINERVA JUST USED ALL HER STRENGTH TO ROLL ONTO HER STOMACH AND FINALLY GRAB THE ROPES!! KASEY IMMEDIATELY LETTING GO OF THE SUBMISSION- BUT ONLY SO SHE COULD STOMP RIGHT ONTO THE BACK OF MINERVA’S HEAD!! Kasey needs to think of something else here if she wants to finish this, because somehow even the Kaos Reigns wasn’t enough to take Minerva out of this! I’ll be honest though, I don’t even know what she has left!
Eve: Kasey is slowly dragging Minerva to her feet, and… WAIT A MINUTE! IS KASEY GOING FOR WHAT I THINK SHE’S GOING FOR!? KASEY HAS MINERVA UP ON HER SHOULDER, BUT NOW SHE’S GETTING HER INTO POSITION FOR MINERVA’S OWN TPK!! IF KASEY CONNECTS WITH THIS, IT’S LIGHTS OUT FOR MINERVA! WE’LL HAVE A NEW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION, NO QUESTIONS ASKED!! BOTH WOMEN PUT UP ONE HELL OF A FIGHT TONIGHT, BUT IN THE END I THINK THIS IS IT! I THINK KASEY KAOS IS ABOUT TO BECOME A CHAMPION!!
Gavin Kirkland: WAIT! YES!! YES YES YES!!! MINERVA ISN’T DONE, MINERVA STILL HAS SOME FIGHT LEFT IN HER! MINERVA MANAGES TO PULL HERSELF DOWN ONTO HER FEET, AND NOW SHE LIFTS KASEY UP!! THE PRINCESS KILLER!!! THE PRINCESS KILLER CONNECTS BY MINERVA!!! KASEY’S HEAD WAS JUST DRIVEN RIGHT INTO THE MAT, AND NOW MINERVA USES EVERYTHING SHE HAS LEFT TO PUT AN ARM OVER KASEY KAOS! WHAT A MATCH BY THESE TWO, BUT I THINK IT’S ALL OVER NOW! AMAZING WORK TONIGHT KASEY, BUT THIS IS MINERVA’S CHAMPIONSHIP, AND NOBODY IS TAKING THIS TITLE ANYTIME SOON!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner…… AND STILLLLLLL YOUR EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONNN…….. MIIIIIIIIIIINNNEEEEEEERRRRVVVAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: THAT’S IT! THE MATCH IS OVER! MINERVA RETAINS! Near the end of the match I honestly thought Kasey Kaos had it! I really thought Kasey was going to walk out of Odyssey as the new Universal Women’s Champion, but just as she aimed to put Minerva away with her own move, Minerva turned it around and killed Kasey with the Princess Killer. What a performance by Kasey Kaos, and congrats Minerva!
Eve: Minerva is going to go into her second ever Pain for Pride as the Universal Women’s Champion. If that’s not an accomplishment I don’t know what is, especially knowing she walked out of last Pain for Pride also holding a Championship. There’s no shame in losing to this woman, especially when you put up the type of fight Kasey did. Had Minerva not managed to counter that last Princess Killer it would’ve been over for her, just like it would’ve been if she wasn’t able to reach the ropes while in the Kaos Reigns. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for these two’s futures.
Gavin Kirkland: I TOLD YOU GUYS! I TOLD YOU! This is why I was on team Minerva! This whole match I was telling you guys Minerva had it, and there you go. Congratulations Emo babe!
Eve: I can’t believe you still have a job here. Anyways, congratulations Minerva!
(‘Children of the Son’ hits, and after a few moments of laying in her own blood after the grueling match, Minerva slowly manages to use the ropes to pull herself back to her feet. She has a crimson mask on her face, but she’s somehow still awake to the point where she’s able to take the Universal Women’s Championship from the referee before having her hand raised by him. After the referee exits the ring, Minerva looks down at Kasey Kaos, who is still laid out in the center of the ring, before raising up her Championship while the camera fades out.)
(The scene fades into Kyra Phillips backstage.)
Kyra Phillips: Ladies and gentlemen, it’s been an excellent show tonight! We are just a few minutes away from our main event of the evening! Just two matches ago, we saw this man get one of the biggest victories of his career when he defeated nine-time World Champion, Impact. Please welcome at this time, Xander Payne!
(Xander Payne comes into the camera shot with a shit-eating grin on his face. He has a mini-towel wrapped around his neck as he holds both ends of it. He is more than thrilled about the outcome of the match. He went into the match believing that he was going to defeat Impact and that’s exactly what happened. Xander feels untouchable at the moment. He’s aware that not many men in this company have a victory over Impact, but Xander does.)
Kyra Phillips: Xander, we saw you take on Impact and defeat him? What are the emotions running through you?
Xander Payne: There are no emotions running through me. I am as cool as a cucumber at the moment. I feel great. I went into the match with Impact with the intentions to prove to everyone that he’s nothing more than an overrated piece of shit. His time has come and he should do the world a favor by just leaving. No one wants him around. The only purpose that he serves is to elevate me to the next level and as of tonight, it seems like he served that purpose. Impact is in the same category as Mr. DEDEDE. Not as an all-time great, but as a relic of the past and he would be doing everyone a favor by staying in that past and letting men like me take their spot in the top of this company. When are people gonna stop sleeping on Xander Payne? That’s what I don’t understand, Kyra. I get all these jokes about my weight from all of these morons, but these people need to be aware that I got more talent in my pinkie than most Elitists on Showdown have on their entire bodies.
Xander Payne: When are people going to realize that I am one of the best in this company? When are people going to get it through their thick skulls that I am who they should be revolving this company around? I should be the face of the company. I should be Answers World Champion instead of that shriveled up bitch Ryan Adams. I mean, did you see that match moments ago? Man, that was awful. Do people think that Ryan Adams could put on a five star performance in 2020? That’s almost asking for Drake King not to curse. That’s almost asking for Myles to not be Australian. That’s almost asking for Bronson Daniels to stop smoking weed. That’s almost asking for Jake Smith not be a fucking cuck. There’s all this hype about these particular men when people should be realizing that me, Xander Payne, is superior to everyone in this company. No one could hold a candle to me in the ring. Not the rising stars, not the veterans, not the Hall of Famers and not the champions. I will take down all of your favorites. I will destroy any man or whore that stands in my way. It’s Payne for Pride season and there is nothing that is going to get in my way from getting my Payne for Pride moment —
???: Is that so, Xander?
(The masculine voice is heard as the camera turns to PURE Champion, Jake Smith, who had successfully retained his championship against Lucas Johnson and Shane Gates. Jake had had a tough night competing twice. Still, it seems Jake will still find a way to get his well-needed camera time because apparently, he brings in the ratings. :wow: )
Xander Payne: It is so, Jake. This is also my interview, so scram.
Jake Smith: Yeah, but this is my show. It’s “The Jake Smith Show” — with Alexis — but, you get the idea. Here are you basking about getting the biggest victory of your entire career while I competed in two matches against a variety of competitors and I feel like I could go out there for a third time tonight.
Xander Payne: :oh:
Jake Smith: I mean, I wouldn’t do that. :whoa: I care about the other people getting their time in the spotlight. You see? I’m a caring and compassionate person. :wow: But, I normally don’t give a shit about what people say, but I saw your fat ass name dropping me. As champion, I should already be used to people name dropping me and wanting to take this championship off of me, but I’m intrigued when you stated that no one could hold a candle to you in the ring because you couldn’t do what I just did tonight. I opened the show and put on an amazing performance. I defended the PURE Championship and put on another amazing performance. I showed no signs of slowing down. Meanwhile, you probably wouldn’t have made it through your first match of the night, Xander.
Xander Payne: Is that so?
Jake Smith: You claim that no one can hold a handle to the ring against you, but are you the PURE Champion? Are you the embodiment of the best wrestler on the roster? Are you the man who is constantly carrying Showdown on his back on a weekly basis? The answer is simple: no. Do you want to know the best wrestler on the roster? Jake Smith. Do you want to know the man who is constantly carrying Showdown on his back? Jake Smith. Meanwhile, you like to claim that no one can hold a candle to you in the ring. You like to claim that you’re superior to everyone on Showdown? When you made those proclamations, did you think of me? Did you think about me, who would more than likely out wrestle you in that ring, Xander?
Xander Payne: I did. While I’ve been facing men like Jamie O’Hara, Mr. DEDEDE, Cameron Ella Ava and Impact, you’ve been facing…Lucas Johnson and Shane Gates? Is that supposed to make me think that you’re better than me? :mjlol: Is that supposed to be a determining factor on Jake Smith being better than Xander Payne?
Jake Smith: I haven’t been provided with much of an opportunity to go up against these top tier talents and that’s probably because Ryan Wilson is afraid that I’d wipe the floor with them. We all know that he’s out to get me and he won’t let me grow as much as I would like too on Showdown, but I digress. There’s no denying that when I get put up against the “top talents” on Showdown, people see the best version of me in the ring. That’s something that you should know, Xander. I’m a fighting champion. I’ll take anyone. Anytime, any place, anywhere. Just remember that.
(Jake Smith begins to walk away from Xander Payne, but turns his back to him.)
Jake Smith: If you ever want to stop being a bitch and step up to me, you know where to find me. :mjgrin:
(Jake Smith turns away from Xander Payne, who looks at the direction that Jake left in before it transitions to ringside.)
(The camera fades in to Gina Romano standing square in the middle of the ring with a big smile on her face before she begins to speak)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, the following is THE NO WAY OUT MATCH!!! And it is to determine the NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!!
(‘Enemy Strike’ by Yuki Hayashi plays up as Myles makes his way out to the stage. He has a smirk on his face as he circles around the stage slowly for a moment spreading his arms out in a cocky mannerism before spreading his legs out and crouching on the ground for a moment before bringing himself back up and spreading his arms out. He keeps his arms spread as he makes his way down the stage and headed towards the ring with a smirk on his face)
Gina Romano: Introducing first… from Melbourne, Australia… weighing in at 227 pounds… THE MANIFEST… MYLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Let’s take a look back at how far Myles has come in the short time that he’s come back here into Elite Answers Wrestling. Not only making himself known and making himself someone that should be reckoned with in this company, solidifying his stance and ultimately being someone that will not be forgotten in this landscape, he’s done well for himself. Now he comes in to possibly one of the biggest opportunities of his life, a chance to gain a shot at the Answers World Championship at Pain For Pride.
Eve: There’s no doubt in my mind that he’s going to be kept down from this shot. This is a match that he’s walking into in his words with someone to prove and absolutely nothing to lose and I’m sure he’s going to make sure that’s going to come true. He’s fought the best before and I’m sure he won’t be afraid to do that again as he comes into this match.
Gavin Kirkland: Those boobs… WAIT THAT’S NOT A FEMALE?! You know you’d guess by the hair but oh well, no difference between them and Myles.
(Myles stops at the bottom of the ramp as he looks around as his smirk turns into a face of pure determination as he makes his way over to the cell that has been designated for him. The referee closes the door and locks it behind Myles, and Myles’ music fades out. ‘Starboy’ by The Weeknd then plays up as Ahren Fournier makes his way out to the stage. He is of course as always wearing a fur coat as he has a smirk on his face that keeps growing as he looks to ring as he makes his way and heads towards the ring)
Gina Romano: Next… from Pawtucket, Rhode Island… weighing in at 210 pounds… THE GOAT… AHREN FOURNIER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: As for Ahren Fournier I’m sure the road is clear for him, The Road To GOATdemption. He’s of course oozing confidence heading into this one especially since he’s already beaten two of his opponents in this matchup last week. Believe me when I say that the confidence is for good reason and I’m sure he’s going to show why.
Eve: If you look at the bigger picture here Ahren has always seemed to deliver. Even if it was at Grand Rampage or frankly any other FPV it’s been known to say the very least, if he goes down he doesn’t go down without a fight, and I feel like we’re going to see that tonight. I’m sure i would not be surprised if Ahren won this match, and if he did it was for good reason.
(Ahren makes his way to his cell and once he’s locked inside, his music fades out. It’s replaced by “Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA, and out walks a focused Jamie O’Hara.)
Gina Romano: Next… residing in Los Angeles, California… weighing in at 190 pounds… he is ‘The Ace of Elite Answers Wrestling’ JAMIE O’HARA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: If there was a favorite, sentimental or otherwise, to win this match, it would be without a doubt our resident ab-a-licious Ace :blessed: There is no one who wants to end the championship reign of Mr. DEDEDE more than Jamie. He was so closed year to getting what he wanted, only to have DEDEDE steal it from him in the end. Tonight, Jamie can take another step towards rewriting history and getting the revenge he wants.
(Jamie takes a look up at the Pain for Pride side on his way to the ring and after staring at it for a moment, he walks over to his cell and gets inside. The referee closes the door and locks Jamie in, and his theme music fades out. “I Love It Loud” by KISS begins to play and out walks Shaker Jones.)
Gina Romano: Next… from Ingles, Manitoba, Canada… weighing in at 238 pounds… he is the Canadian Wolf… SHAKER JONES!!!!
Deadprez: As you can see, Shaker Jones is our mystery entrant! Earlier tonight, Chris Elite stuck it to Ryan Wilson by using the Gawd Contract to place Shaker in this match.
Gavin Kirkland: Imagine Shaker Jones headlining Pain for Pride against Mr. DEDEDE! He would be the favorite! He already has a win against the Chairman!!!!
(Shaker looks pretty confident as he steps into his cell. As the final person to get into the cell, it’s clear to see who will start the match. ‘Old Town Road (Remix)’ by Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus plays as Lance Blackfyre makes his way out to the stage. He was going to ride his horse to the ring but it got confiscated for health reasons. He walks to the center of the stage as he raises his arms in the air with a yell before making his way down to the ring with anger on his face)
Gina Romano: Next… from Chicago, Illinois… weighing in at 365 pounds… THE OMEN OF DESTRUCTION… LANCE BLACKFYRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: As for Lance I’m sure his road has been rocky, but it’s nothing he can’t bring himself out of. One thing that has been set on his mind is Pain For Pride, out of every match he’s been in this is a match more than any other that he needs to win. This could solidify his matchup at Pain For Pride for the better and give him that moment he longed for to ultimately bring him back on track.
Eve: Of course his brute strength is going to be an asset in this match and I’m sure he’s going to make good use of it. He could easily dominate this match if he was given the chance and I don’t see anything wrong with that. Despite everything he’s shown that he can go on-par with some of the best that EAW has to offer, could we possibly be seeing him do that again and possibly gain him a win tonight?
Gavin Kirkland: Now look I don’t know who usually wins but this guy?! He looks like a homeless person who stumbles onto the stage. He is nothing to the other people who is coming out to this match especially… especially… :heart_eyes:
(Lance Blackfyre continues his walk down the ramp as he walks around the ringside area before climbing up the steel steps and entering into the ring. He spreads his arms out with a roar before glancing over at Myles who is leaning in the corner very unimpressed. Lance completely ignores him as he heads to his corner with a no nonsense look on his face as he does so as ‘Old Town Road’ fades out. “Diamonds” by Megan Thee Stallion and Normani begins to play and a very determined and very confident Candice Blair makes her way to the ring!)
Gina Romano: Next… hailing from San Francisco, California… weighing in at 126 pounds… THE HOT COMMODITY… CANDICE BLAIR!!!
Gavin Kirkland: YAAAAASSS!!! CUM TO DADDY CANDICE BABY!!!! HERE IS MY PICK TO WIN THIS MATCH AND HEADLINE PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!!
Eve: It’s no secret that Candice desperately wants to win this match and have a chance to avenge her sister, Cameron Ella Ava. She’s made it her mission to take down Mr. DEDEDE and end his reign of terror once and for all.
Deadprez: Candice comes in with the least amount of big match experience, and the odds are stacked firmly against. However we’ve seen all the Avas overcome the odds time and time again.
(Once Candice is in the ring, the individual cells begin to rise to the top of the prison like structure the six competitors for No Way Out find themselves in. Once everything is settled and Lance and Candice are ready, the referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: HERE. WE. GO! The winner of this match will go on to face Mr. DEDEDE for the Answers World Championship at Pain for Pride!
Deadprez: The size difference between Candice Blair and Lance Blackfyre is startling to say the least. I don’t think Candice has ever been inside the ring with someone as big as Lance. She shows no fear as she charges Lance and drives her shoulder into his midsection! Lance doesn’t budge which prompts Candice to run the ropes and try for a clothesline! Lance remains standing as Candice goes for a third takedown! Lance throws his foot up and catches Candice in the jaw!
Gavin Kirkland: :mjcry: That was rude.
Eve: Candice is sprawled on the mat, but quickly rises. Candice’s reasons for wanting to win this match are entirely personal. Mr. DEDEDE has tortured her family for ages now and after ending the career of Cameron Ella Ava and taking her Answers World Championship, Candice wants nothing more than to go into Pain for Pride and take the title back for her sister. Lance quickly forces Candice back to the mat by shoving her face down with his boot. He keeps his foot on her and rubs her face into the canvas.
Deadprez: There’s no doubt that Lance’s strength is going to be a huge advantage to him in this match. Candice is easy pickings for him at the moment, Lance uses his big paw to snatch her up by the hair! Lance whips Candice into the corner chest first and she slams into the exposed steel turnbuckles! Candice falls to her knees and Lance places his foot against her throat! He is choking Candice right now and I don’t think this is the start Candice envisioned for the match!
Gavin Kirkland: There’s no doubt that my little flower was hoping for something a little more in her favor, but I guess what works in her favor is that Lance can’t pick up a pinfall or a submission until ALL of our competitors are inside the ring. This is NOT elimination style.
Eve: But it definitely hurts Candice’s chances at the she’s first in this match with someone like Lance Blackfyre.
Deadprez: Lance pulls Candice up by the throat and hoists her high in the air! Candice is clawing at his forearms and hands, but look at that smirk on Lance’s face! He grips Candice’s neck even tighter and slams her into the mat! Candice immediately grips her lower back and rolls to the side, while Lance leans against the ropes, taunting her to get up and give it her best shot.
Gavin Kirkland: Can you just imagine Lance Blackfyre riding down to the ring on his majestic horse, en route to facing Mr. DEDEDE for the Answers World Championship?! Holy shit, what a sight that would be and there’s a great chance we’re gunna get blessed with that :wow:!!!!
Eve: Lance has turned his back and climbed onto the ropes. He is taunting Myles right now, and pointing at the Pain for Pride sign. Myles seems content to ignore Blackfyre for the moment, knowing that there’s not much he can do when he’s locked in a cell and suspended above the ring.
Gavin Kirkland: WAIT A SECOND! CANDICE IS UP AND SHE’S SNEAKING UP ON LANCE! SHE LOW BLOWS HIM WHILE HIS BACK IS TURNED AND SHE’S POSITIONED HERSELF BETWEEN HIS LEGS AND THE TURNBUCKLES! CANDICE HAS LANCE AND SHE THROWS HIM TO THE MAT WITH A POWERBOMB!!! HOLY SHIT! CANDICE IMMEDIATELY LOOKS FOR A FRONT FACELOCK, HAVING CAUGHT THE BIG MAN OFF GUARD! LANCE MANAGES TO THROW CANDICE OFF HIM, BUT HE’S STILL IN PAIN FROM THE LOW BLOW! CANDICE WITH A LOW DROPKICK NOW THAT SENDS LANCE INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! LANCE’S LOWER BACK STRUCK THE STEEL AND HE WISELY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! HE’S HOLDING HIS LOWER BACK BUT CANDICE RUNS THE ROPES AND DIVES THROUGH THEM, SPEARING LANCE IN THE BACK! LANCE SLAMS FACE FIRST INTO THE PRISON BARS BUT HE STILL MANAGES TO STAY ON HIS FEET!
Deadprez: CANDICE IS UP AND SHE SCRAMBLES ONTO THE APRON! SHE TAKES OFF RUNNING AND DIVES, LOOKING FOR A HURRICANRANA!
Eve: NO! LANCE CAUGHT HER! LANCE HAS CANDICE AND HE SWINGS HER INTO THE SIDE OF THE PRISON STRUCTURE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! CANDICE IS IN A HEAP ON THE CEMENT AND LANCE IS REACHING UNDER THE RING! HE PULLS OUT A SHOVEL AND I SHUDDER TO THINK, ABOUT WHAT HE’S GOING TO DO WITH THAT! LANCE MAKES HIS WAY BACK OVER TO CANDICE AND HE RAISES THE SHOVEL ABOVE HIS! DON’T DO IT LANCE! DON’T MAIM THE HOTTEST AVA :noah:!!!!!!
Deadprez: LANCE BRINGS THE SHOVEL DOWN BUT IT SMACKS THE CEMENT! CANDICE MANAGED TO MOVE OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE TAKING THAT SHOVEL TO THE FACE, BUT LANCE IS LAUGHING! CANDICE IS CRAWLING TOWARDS THE RING STEPS AND NOW LANCE IS STALKING HER! HE LOOKS TO HIT HER WITH THE SHOVE ONCE AGAIN, BUT CANDICE LEAPS OVER THE STEPS AND THE SHOVE STRIKES THE STEEL!
Eve: :damn: IT LEFT A DENT IN THE RING STEPS!
Gavin Kirkland: MY BABY GETS BACK INTO THE RING AND LANCE STORMS UP THE STEPS, SHOVEL IN HAND! CANDICE BACKS AGAINST THE ROPES AND AS LANCE CLIMBS INTO THE RING SHE RUSHES HIM!!!
Deadprez: SHOVEL TO THE FACE!!! CANDICE BLAIR BUSTED OPEN AND OUT COLD IN THE MIDDLE THE RING!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: :lupe: Can we make sure she’s not dead?
5… 4… 3… 2… 1… BUZZ!!!
(The lights dim and a spotlight focuses on the first cell to lower from the structure.)
Eve: LANCE HAS HIT THE GROUND AND THE REFEREE UNLOCKS THE CELL DOOR FOR MYLES!
Deadprez: LANCE WELCOMES MYLES INTO THE MATCH BY SWINGING THE SHOVEL BUT MYLES PULLS THE CELL DOOR SHUT! THE SHOVEL HITS THE STEEL BARS OF MYLES’ CELL AND MYLES PUSHES HIS WAY FREE! HE SLAMS THE DOOR INTO LANCE, WHICH CAUSES LANCE TO STUMBLE BACK! THE SHOVEL FALLS FROM LANCE’S HANDS AND MYLES GREETS THE BIG MAN WITH AN IMPRESSIVE JUMPING KNEE STRIKE THAT CONNECTS WITH LANCE’S JAW! LANCE TAKES A KNEE, AND MYLES CRACKS HIM ACROSS THE FACE WITH A SUPERKICK! LANCE IS ON BOTH KNEES NOW AND MYLES IS STRIKING HIM OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN THE CHEST WITH THOSE LASER LIKE KICKS! MYLES IS SUCH AN INCREDIBLE STRIKER AND HE FINALLY TAKES DOWN LANCE WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE TO THE JAW!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Myles checks on Candice, who is just laying there in a pool of her own blood :mjcry:, and he grabs Lance by the hair and drags him towards the ring steps. That’s some impressive strength being showcased by Myles at the moment, because that deadweight of Lance Blackfyre’s is a lot to deal with. Myles throws Lance head first into the steps and pulls them away from the ring. Myles places Lance’s head right by the LED ringpost, and moves the steps into a position so Lance’s skull is sandwiched between both :lupe:!
Eve: Myles takes off running around the ring and HE KICKS THE STEPS WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK :damn:!!!! HE JUST FUCKING CRUSHED THE SKULL OF LANCE BLACKFYRE! HOLY SHIT!
Deadprez: :damn: HOLY SHIT INDEED! I’M SHOOK! LANCE TOOK OUT CANDICE. NOW MYLES HAS TAKEN OUT LANCE! AND THIS MATCH HAS BARELY EVEN STARTED!
Gavin Kirkland: With Lance subdued on the outside of the ring, Myles climbs inside and goes right for Candice! He drags her by the blood soaked hair and sits her up against the turnbuckles. I don’t like this at all. Myles has a wicked look in his eyes. He doesn’t even care about main eventing Pain for Pride. He just wants to destroy everyone inside No Way Out with him tonight. :lupe: Myles to the corner now… RUNNING KNEE STRIKE!!!!
Eve: NO! CANDICE WAS ABLE TO MOVE AND MYLES SLAMS INTO THE EXPOSED STEEL TURNBUCKLE! Myles is holding his knee now and Candice has somehow managed to grab the ropes and pull herself up! Her face is a fucking mess right now, but she staggers over to Myles and uncorks a kick to that injured right knee! Myles eats the kick and tries to catch Candice with a right hand, but she blocks and kicks him again! Candice is another Elitist who prefers the striking style of wrestling, and she’s got Myles backed up against the ropes! He is trying to protect himself, while Candice kicks the shit out of him, and she levels him with a palm strike! The palm strike caught Myles in the nose, and Candice drives her knee into his stomach! Myles is doubled over and Candice with a jumping scissors kick that drives his face into the mat!
Deadprez: Candice immediately grabs Myles by the legs and she is going for the ‘Candy Lock’!!! Smart move by Candice! She can’t win the match right now, but she can continue to soften up Myles’ leg and take advantage of that in the latter stages of this match! That inverted figure four leglock has Myles reeling and reaching for the ropes! There’s no breaks in this match either, so basically ‘The Manifest’ Myles is a sitting duck for Candice Blair right now! He has nowhere to go, and that right knee is literally being torture right now!
Gavin Kirkland: LANCE WITH A BIG BOOT! WHERE DID HE COME FROM?! I THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD! LANCE BREAKS THE ‘CANDY LOCK’ WITH A BOOT TO CANDICE’S JAW AND BAH GAWD! BIG DICK LANCE IS BLEEDING FROM THE SIDE OF HIS SKULL, LOOKING LIKE A HORROR MOVIE SERIAL KILLER, AND HE JUST CRUSHES MYLES’ RIGHT KNEE WITH A LEG DROP!!!
Eve: :lupe: This is not good for Myles! Lance is dragging him by the leg to the corner of the ring, and he drops down to the ground. Lance maintains control of the leg and slams it into the ringpost! He holds on and does again, and Myles rolls to the outside. He hits the ground, clutching his knee, and Lance has gone to get the shove! Lance has the fucking shovel! Myles knows that Lance is going to try and end him with that weapon, and he uses the ring skirt to pull himself up! Lance gets ready to swing for the fences BUT CANDICE IS ON THE APRON! SHE KICKS THE SHOVEL FROM LANCE’S HANDS AND LEAPS ONTO HIS BACK! CANDICE HAS HER ARMS WRAPPED AROUND LANCE’S NECK AND SHE IS CHOKING HIM! MYLES LIMPS OVER TO THE SHOVEL AND GRABS IT, BOOTING LANCE IN THE STOMACH WITH IT! LANCE IS BENDING OVER NOW AND CANDICE FLIPS OVER, AND SPIKES LANCE’S HEAD INTO THE CONCRETE GROUND WITH A MODIFIED DDT!!!
Deadprez: MYLES SLAMS THE SHOVEL DOWN INTO LANCE’S RIBCAGE, AND CANDICE STARTS STOMPING ON LANCE’S FACE! THESE TWO ARE DESTROYING LANCE BLACKFYRE RIGHT NOW!!!!
5… 4… 3… 2… 1… BUZZ!!!
(The lights dim again and the spotlight lands on the second cell to be lowered from the structure.)
Eve: THE REFEREE RELEASES JAMIE O’HARA AND HE TAKES OFF RUNNING! MYLES DROPS THE SHOVEL AND GOES TO MEET JAMIE HEAD ON, BUT JAMIE ABSOLUTELY WRECKS HIM WITH A RUNNING LARIAT! CANDICE QUICKLY TURNS AROUND BUT JAMIE NEARLY TAKES HER HEAD OFF WITH A LARIAT! HE DOESN’T WASTE ANY TIME WITH LANCE, BUT INSTEAD GRABS HIS SISTER-IN-LAW AND RAMS HER FACE FIRST INTO THE PRISON BARS! MYLES GRABS JAMIE FROM BEHIND, BUT JAMIE SPINS AROUND AND CATCHES MYLES WITH A HEEL KICK! HE GRABS MYLES AND HOISTS HIM UP… ‘VISUAL IDENTITY’!!! BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX INTO A PILEDRIVER ONTO THE EXPOSED CEMENT FLOOR!!!! THAT COULD HAVE REALLY FUCKED UP MYLES NECK! :damn:!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie is running off of emotion and adrenaline, and he shakes off the fact he just landed on a cement floor. He grabs Myles’ carcass and throws him into the ring! He grabs Candice as well and tosses her inside, and climbs onto the turnbuckles! Jamie sizes up two of his fellow No Way Out competitors and leaps from the ropes! GENKI CANNON!! THE DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP LANDS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF MYLES CHEST! JAMIE ROLLS TO HIS FEET, RUNS THE ROPES, AND NAILS CANDICE WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK RIGHT AS SHE SITS BACK UP! JAMIE SNATCHES UP CANDICE, AND SLAMS HER DOWN ON TOP OF MYLES, AND ONCE AGAIN, HE HEADS TO THE TOP ROPE!
Deadprez: JAMIE HAS COME OUT ABSOLUTELY ON FIRE AND HE LANDS ANOTHER GENKI CANNON! THIS TIME HE CONNECTS WITH THE BACK OF CANDICE’S HEAD, AND BOTH CANDICE AND MYLES ARE DOWN!
Eve: But look! On the outside of the ring, Lance Blackfyre has gotten to his feet! It is going to be almost impossible to keep this monster down and I have no clue how the other competitors are going to manage that in this match. Lance has sustained a ton of punishment in this match already, but he is back to his feet! Jamie takes another look at Candice and Myles, decides they’re down for the count, and he runs the ropes! LOW-PE SUICIDA! JAMIE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPES!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT LANCE KNOCKS HIM OUT OF THE AIR WITH A KNEE! JAMIE CRASHES AND BURNS, AND LANCE TRIES TO SHAKE OFF THE EFFECTS OF THE BEATING HE TOOK A FEW MOMENTS AGO!
Deadprez: He turns his attention to Jamie now and kicks ‘The Ace’ right in the ribcage area! Jamie clutches his side and Lance kicks him again! He grabs Jamie now and rams him into the ringpost! Lance catches Jamie as he stumbles back, runs towards the ring steps, AND PLANTS HIM WITH A SITOUT SPINEBUSTER ON TOP OF THE STEPS!!!! :damn:!!!! Jamie might really be hurt! :lupe:
Eve: Lance is back into the ring now he makes a beeline for Myles, who was getting back to his feet. Lance’s big boot sends Myles into the ropes, and Lance follows up with a huge clothesline that dumps Myles to the outside! Lance turns to Candice, who is holding the back of her neck, and he absolutely flattens her with a running leg drop to the back of the neck! Lance grabs Candice and places her over his shoulder and he is making his way to the ropes 😐😐😐😐! What in the world is Lance going to do?! WHY IS HE CLIMBING THE ROPES?!?!
Gavin Kirkland: OH DEAR GAWD! HE IS GOING TO KILL THEM BOTH! HE HAS PULLED CANDICE INTO POSITION FOR A POWERBOMB AND FUCKING LANCE ISN’T FACING THE RING! HOLY MOTHER OF GAWD!!!! LANCE FLIES OFF THE TOP!!! FLYING POWERBOMB OFF THE TOP ROPE! CANDICE LANDS ON TOP JAMIE AND THE FORCE OF THAT FLYING POWERBOMB LITERALLY DENTED THE RING STEPS AND JAMIE O’HARA IN HALF! :damn: :damn: :damn:!!!!!
Deadprez: High risk, but I’m not sure if it’s going to lead to high rewards! Lance Blackfyre is grabbing his backside and screaming in pain right now! He sacrificed himself to murder Jamie and Candice, and all four of our competitors are down right now!
Eve: I really can’t believe the impact of that powerbomb bent the ring steps in half. Jamie O’Hara and Candice Blair might be seriously injured. Jamie took the brunt of that impact, and we all know how desperately he wants to win this match. To face Mr. DEDEDE at Pain for Pride would mean absolutely everything to him. It’s no secret that Jamie has lived with regrets for not being there for his wife during her battles with Mr. DEDEDE. Getting to Pain for Pride and facing DEDEDE for that championship is everything to Jamie right now. It’s the only possible outcome he will accept tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Well the man with the sexiest knees in the business is in a lot of pain right now. Candice has rolled onto the ground, and she’s not moving a lot either. Myles is the only competitor who has managed to make it back up. He sees everyone down and his eyes settle on Jamie who is being checked out by the referee! A sadistic look crosses Myles’ face and he begins to scale turnbuckles! Is Myles about to go high risk?! :damn:
5… 4… 3… 2… 1… BUZZ!!!
(For the third time, the spotlight shines on the cell that is being lowered .)
Deadprez: MYLES FLIES FROM THE TOP ROPE WITH A FROG SPLASH AND LANDS ON JAMIE ON TOP OF THE STEPS! THE REFEREE HAS JUST LET AHREN FOURNIER INTO THE MATCH AND IMMEDIATELY THE GOAT RUNS TOWARDS MYLES! AHREN HOPS ON THE APRON OF THE RING AND RUNS AS MYLES GETS TO HIS FEET… STORYBOOK ENDING OFF THE APRON! MYLES’ FACE SLAMS INTO THE CONCRETE!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Ahren goes to check on his bestie, but Lance has finally made his way back to his feet! He stalks towards the GOAT, but Ahren is the freshest competitor in this match! He leaves Jamie’s side and runs for Lance, hitting with a dropkick to the knees! Lance manages to stay up and he grabs Ahren by the man bun and headbutts him! Ahren hits the ground and Lance is able to land a kick right to the midsection of Ahren! Ahren reaches under the apron of the ring while Lance kicks him again and he pulls out an umbrella! Ahren swings the umbrella at Lance AS CANDICE BLAIR COMES UP FROM BEHIND! SHE SLAMS THE HEEL OF A STUDDED LOUIS VUITTON PUMP INTO LANCES BACK RIGHT AS AHREN NAILS HIM IN THE GROIN WITH THE UMBRELLA!
Eve: LANCE DROPS AND CANDICE SLAMS THE SHOE UPSIDE LANCE’S SKULL! THE WOUND FROM EARLIER STARTS POURING FRESH BLOOD AND CANDICE USES THE STUDS ON THE SHOE TO OPEN THE WOUND FURTHER! AHREN IS UP AND HE USES THE HANDLE OF THE UMBRELLA TO STRIKE LANCE IN THE THROAT! LANCES IS DOWN ONCE AGAIN AND AHREN TAKES ANOTHER SWING WITH THE UMBRELLA! CANDICE MANAGES TO DUCK UNDERNEATH AND CATCH AHREN WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE! THE UMBRELLA FLIES FROM HIS HANDS AND CANDICE STRIKES HIM BETWEEN THE EYES WITH THE HEEL OF THE SHOE!
Deadprez: AHREN IS DOWN AND CANDICE BEGINS STOMPING AWAY ON HIM! SHE DROPS DOWN AND RAISES THE SHOE ABOVE HER HEAD, AIMING IT RIGHT AT AHREN’S EYE! SHE IS GOING TO BLIND THE GOAT! CANDICE BRINGS THE SHOE DOWN AND OH MAH GOD!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! AHREN GOT HIS ARMS UP! HE BRINGS HIS FOOT UP AND IT CONNECTS WITH CANDICE’S FACE! THAT ALLOWS AHREN TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY BEFORE CANDICE CAN TRY AND STRIKE HIM AGAIN, BUT THERE’S MYLES! MYLES’ NOSE APPEARS TO BE BROKEN BUT HE CATCHES AHREN WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! CANDICE SPRINGS UP, CATCHING AHREN IN THE TEMPLE WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK! MYLES CATCHES AHREN ON THE WAY DOWN, HOISTS HIM UP, AND HE SLAMS HIM INTO THE CONCRETE WITH ‘WRATH OF PANDORA’! THE CANADIAN RACK INTO A DDT HAS TAKEN DOWN AHREN FOURNIER AND NOW MYLES CATCHES CANDICE WITH A SUPERKICK!
Eve: JAMIE HAS FINALLY GOTTEN UP AND HE IS FAVORING HIS RIBS! MYLES MAKES A BEELINE FOR THE ACE, NO DOUBT LOOKING FOR A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE, BUT JAMIE IS ABLE TO SIDE-STEP MYLES! MYLES MANAGES TO HIT THE BRAKES BEFORE HE CRASHES INTO THE PRISON BARS, BUT JAMIE IS BEHIND HIM! HE GRIPS MYLES AROUND THE WAIST AND HITS HIM WITH A RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX! MYLES CRASHES INTO THE SIDE OF AN EMPTY CELL AND IMMEDIATELY GRABS THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! JAMIE HEADS TO WHERE THE REST OF THE NO WAY OUT COMPETITORS AND THE PERSON HE TARGETS IS LANCE! LANCE WAS IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING UP BUT JAMIE JUST TOOK HIM OUT WITH IN EXCELSIS!!!! THE RUNNING BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS WITH THE BLOODIED SIDE OF LANCE’S FACE! JAMIE WHIRLS AROUND AS AHREN IS GETTING BACK UP AND HE TAKES OUT AHREN WITH ANOTHER IN EXCELSIS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: :mjgrin: STAY DOWN, CANDICE!
Deadprez: A THIRD IN EXCELSIS CATCHES CANDICE IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD! JAMIE O’HARA HAS JUST TAKEN OUT ALL THE NO WAY OUT COMPETITORS!
Eve: Jamie looks to the top of the structure, looking at the last man left. Shaker Jones is the only competitor who hasn’t been released into this match yet, but once his cell lowers, all bets will be off! The first person to score a pinfall or a submission will win the match and get themselves into the main event of Pain for Pride! Jamie knows that he still has some time to dish out more damage to everyone who’s in the match so far, so he grabs the first weapon he can get his hands on…
Gavin Kirkland: THE SHOVEL! JAMIE HAS THE SHOVEL!!
Deadprez: Jamie storms over to Myles and he drives the point of the shovel down into Myles’ knee! :damn:! DAMN BRO! Myles just let out a cry of pain and Jamie wraps the handle around Myles’ throat and now he is choking him! Jamie is choking Myles and Myles is doing whatever he can to try and stop Jamie! He drives his elbow into Jamie’s temple, but Jamie replies by headbutting the back of Myles’ skull! Jamie drops to the ground and wraps his legs around Myles!
Eve: AHREN IS UP AND HAS FOUND HIS UMBRELLA! HE SLAMS IT DOWN ON JAMIE WHICH BREAKS THE CHOKE AND GIVES MYLES A REPRIEVE! JAMIE NEARLY HAD MYLES CHOKED OUT, BUT AHREN IS RELENTLESSLY BEATING THE ACE OVER AND OVER! HE IS MAKING SURE TO TARGET THE RIB AREA, WHICH IS WHAT JAMIE WAS FAVORING EARLIER!
5… 4… 3… 2… 1… BUZZ!!!
(For the final time, the spotlight shines on the cell that is being lowered. Shake Jones rubs his hands together, obviously ready for this huge match!)
Gavin Kirkland: THE REFEREE LETS SHAKER FREE AND AHREN GREETS SHAKER WITH AN UMBRELLA SHOT TO THE STOMACH!
Eve: NO! SHAKER BLOCKED THE SHOT AND HE WRESTLES THE UMBRELLA AWAY FROM AHREN! AHREN GOES TO STRIKE SHAKER WITH A RIGHT HAND BUT SHAKER JUST SPIT GREEN MIST IN AHREN’S FACE! SHAKER HAS BLINDED THE GOAT AND HE BRINGS THE UMBRELLA DOWN ON AHREN’S HEAD! AHREN DROPS TO HIS KNEES AND THAT ALLOWS SHAKER TO HIT HIM WITH A SUPERKICK! THE CANADIAN WOLF LEAPS OVER AHREN’S FALLEN BODY AND HE MANAGES TO TAKE DOWN CANDICE WITH A FLYING FOREARM SMASH! CANDICE HAD JUST GOTTEN UP AFTER EATING AN IN EXCELSIS THANKS TO JAMIE, BUT SHAKER HAS TAKEN HER OUT OF THE MATCH AGAIN!
Deadprez: In the midst of all this chaos, Myles got back into the ring and has been recovering but Shaker is in there now! Shaker greets Myles with a huge right hand, but Myles fires back with one of his own! Shaker retaliates and now the two are just going at it! MYLES! SHAKER! MYLES! SHAKER! MYLES! SHAKER! SHAKER! SHAKER! SHAKER WITH A PALM STRIKE TO THAT ALREADY BUSTED NOSE OF MYLES!!!! THAT ABSOLUTELY ROCKS MYLES AND SHAKER GRABS MYLES, SPIKING HIM INTO THE MAT WITH A DDT!!! SHAKER IS GOING FOR THE PINFALL AND THE WIN!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: MYLES GETS THE SHOULDER UP!
Eve: Shaker mounts Myles and is hammering away on him! Myles attempts to fight back but right now Shaker is just the much fresher competitor! Myles has taken a lot of punishment in the 20 or so minutes he has been in this match, and even though he is a future goat, that is a lot to absorb.
Deadprez: Shaker had a hell of a battle with Ryan Wilson earlier tonight. Is he really the fresher man, though?
Gavin Kirkland: I don’t know but one thing I do know is that Candice is back in the ring! She’s got the shoe and she slams it into the top of Shaker’s skull! Shaker falls to the side and Candice stomps on Myles’ right leg for good measure! She takes control of the match by sending Myles out of the ring and nailing Shaker with a shoot style kick! Candice takes Shaker by the arm and whips him into the exposed steel of the turnbuckles! She lights Shaker up with varied kicks and strikes, including a nasty looking forearm that connected to Shaker’s jaw! Shaker is reeling and Candice backs up a bit, taunting Shaker to come at her! He finally pushes himself away from the corner ONLY FOR CANDICE TO HIT A FRONT HANDSPRING AND CONNECT WITH A STUNNER! CANDICE GOES FOR THE LEGS AND SHE WRAPS SHAKER UP IN THE ‘CANDY LOCK’!!! CANDICE IS GOING TO PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!!
Eve: NOT YET! SHAKER IS HANGING ON! THE REFEREE IS ASKING HIM IF HE WANTS TO QUIT BUT SHAKE IS REFUSING! THAT’S MAKING CANDICE LOCK THAT MOVE IN EVEN TIGHTER, AND SHAKER IS BITING HIS FIST TO KEEP FROM TAPPING! NO ONE HAS GIVEN CANDICE BLAIR A CHANCE TO WIN THIS MATCH BUT SHE’S ABOUT TO DO IT! SHAKER CAN’T HANG ON MU-
Deadprez: IN EXCELSIS TO THE BACK OF CANDICE’S SKULL! JAMIE JUST SAVED THE MATCH AND HE GRABS SHAKER IN A KNEEBAR! SHAKER’S LEGS WERE ALREADY WEAKENED THANKS TO CANDICE’S INVERTED FIGURE FOUR AND NOW JAMIE IS TARGETING THE KNEE OF SHAKER! THIS IS NOT WHAT SHAKER BARGAINED FOR WHEN CHRIS ELITE GAWD CONTRACTED HIM INTO THE MATCH EARLIER TONIGHT! HE THOUGHT FOR SURE TONIGHT WAS GOING TO BE HIS NIGHT ESPECIALLY AFTER COMING UP SHORT AGAINST RYAN WILSON!
Gavin Kirkland: Poor Shake and Bake! He still can’t do anything and Jamie is torturing him! Shaker might not have any choice but to tap out and live to fight another day! There is always a bigger picture and that is something Shaker needs to see right now. He’s got a lot going for him and hey, Chris Elite still has his Gawd Contract! He can always just Gawd Contract Shaker into the Pain for Pride main event…
Eve: :lupe: Shaker raises his hand to tap! This match is ov-
Deadprez: AHREN FOURNIER JUST DOVE OFF THE SECOND ROPE AND LANDED A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ON JAMIE! THE KNEEBAR IS BROKEN BUT OH MY GOD! THE FORMER EAW WORLD CHAMPION GRABS THE LEFT LEG OF SHAKER THAT WAS JUST TRAPPED IN THE KNEEBAR! AHREN QUICKLY DECIDES TO REMIND ALL OF US THAT IS TRAINED IN THE ART OF MMA AND SUBMISSIONS AND HE WRAPS SHAKER UP IN A HALF BOSTON CRAB! THAT LEFT OF KNEE OF SHAKER JONES HAS GOT TO BE WRECKED AT THIS POINT! :damn:
Gavin Kirkland: FUCK! HOW MUCH MORE PUNISHMENT CAN SHAKER JONES TAKE!!!!
Eve: AHREN HAS SWITCH TO ONE HAND AND HE IS GRIPPING THE ROPES WITH THE OTHER! HOLDING ONTO THE ROPES IS GIVING HIM EVEN MORE LEVERAGE! FUCK! IF SHAKER DOESN’T TAP OUT, HE MIGHT JUST PASS OUT! IF HE DOES, AHREN FOURNIER IS GOING TO HEAD TO HIS FIRST EVER PAIN FOR PRIDE MAIN EVENT!
Deadprez: MYLES! MYLES! MYLES! MYLES FLIES BACK INTO THE RING AND BREAKS IT UP! SHAKER JONES JUST GOT ANOTHER LEASE ON LIFE… NO HE DIDN’T! MYLES RAMS AHREN SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE EXPOSED TURNBUCKLES AND NOW HE IS GRABBING SHAKER! MYLES SEES HIS COMPETITION LAID OUT IN THE RING AND HE PULLS SHAKER UP FOR HIS FINISHER! :damn: DE FACTO!!!! MYLES GOT ALL OF SPINNING PUMPHANDLE SAMOAN DROP AND HE IS GOING FOR THE COVER!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: FUCK!
Eve: LANCE BLACKFYRE SNATCHES MYLES UP BY THE NECK AND TURNS HIM AROUND! HE WRAPS HIS HAND AROUND MYLES THROAT!!! ‘TITANIC PLUNGE’!!!! THE ONE-HANDED CHOKESLAM MIGHT HAVE JUST ENDED MYLES CHANCE TO WIN THIS MATCH AND STAMP HIS TICKET TO PAIN FOR PRIDE!
Deadprez: LANCE GOES FOR THE PIN BUT BOTH JAMIE AND AHREN ARE FLYING AT LANCE! LANCE FUCKING LEAPS OVER THEIR DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT ONLY TO RUN INTO A SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK FROM CANDICE WHO TIMED THAT PERFECTLY! LANCE STAGGERS BACK AND JAMIE AND AHREN WORK IN TANDEM TO BRING LANCE DOWN WITH A DOUBLE NECKBREAKER!!!! CANDICE QUICKLY FOLLOWS UP THE DOUBLE TEAM WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT!!! HER KNEES LAND RIGHT ON LANCE’S CHEST, DRIVING THE AIR OUT OF HIS LUNGS, AND SHE GOES FOR THE CO-
Gavin Kirkland: STORYBOOK ENDING! AHREN WITH THE CURB STOMP TO CANDICE HOWEVER JAMIE NEARLY TAKES AHREN’S HEAD OFF WITH A DISCUS LARIAT!!! JESUS CHRIST!!! JAMIE GRABS AHREN BY THE WRISTS AND HE IS GOING FOR STARDUST BREAKER! THE RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE CONNECTS WITH AHREN’S JAW AND JAMIE GO-
Eve: SLDKJFSD SDLFJ SLDKF JSDLFKJ!!! SHAKER! SHAKER! SHAKE JUST GRABBED JAMIE FROM BEHIND AND ROLLS HIM UP!!!!
Deadprez: :damn: THIS MOTHA FUCKA HAS A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO WAY! NO FUCKING WAY! YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Eve: I AM FUCKING SHOOK!!!!
Deadprez: MYLES JUST BUSTED A PLANE OF GLASS OVER SHAKER’S SKULL!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: CANDICE JUST CAME FLYING IN WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE OUT OF NOWHERE THAT TAKES SHAKER OUT OF THE EQUATION, BUT MYLES IS RIGHT THERE TO GRAB HER AND PLANT HER INTO THE GLASS WITH A SPINNING SITOUT POWERBOMB!!!!
Eve: JAMIE GRABS MYLES BEFORE HE CAN GO FOR THE COVER BUT MYLES HEADBUTTS JAMIE IN THE ABS BEFORE JAMIE COULD SET HIM UP FOR STARDUST BREAKER! MYLES GRABS A HANDFUL OF GLASS AND TOSSES IT AT JAMIE’S FACE BEFORE LEAPING UP AND SUPERKICKING THE ACE!!!! MYLES GOES FOR THE COVER BUT HE DOESN’T SEE THAT LANCE IS BEHIND HIM! LANCE LIFTS MYLES UP, TOSSES HIM OVER HIS SHOULDER, AND LAWN DARTS HIM OUT OF THE RING! MYLES SLAMS HEAD FIRST INTO THE SIDE OF THE PRISON BARS AND COLLAPSES ONTO THE CONCRETE! DEAR GOD! HE MIGHT BE DEAD!
Gavin Kirkland: Harper backstage somewhere snotting into her Myles T-shirt after that! Surely Myles is done after that! Between all the damage his knee sustained, and that landing, he’s not going to be a factor into this match anymore.
Deadprez: Lance is looking around the ring at all the carnage! He sees Ahren getting back up, and makes his way towards the GOAT, BUT AHREN WAS READY FOR HIM! LOW BLOW BY AHREN! AHREN TAKES LANCE’S LEGS AWAY FROM HIM BY CHOPPING HIM DOWN WITH SEVERAL LOW KICKS TO THE KNEE! WITH LANCE GROUNDED, AHREN LOOKS FOR A TRIANGLE CHOKE!!!!
Eve: BUT LANCE’S IMPRESSIVE STRENGTH KEEPS HIM IN THIS MATCH! HE IS ABLE TO GET HIMSELF BACK TO HIS KNEES AND HE IS CRADLING AHREN! AHREN HAS HAD TO RELEASE THE CHOKE AND HE IS PEPPERING LANCE WITH ELBOW AFTER ELBOW! LANCE LUMBERS TO HIS FEET AND USES WHAT HE HAS LEFT IN THE TANK TO RUN TOWARDS THE CORNER AND SLAM AHREN INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT HE DOESN’T LET GO! LANCE SLAMS THE GOAT AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLES A SECOND TIME! AHREN’S BACK HAS GOT TO BE HURTING BUT HE MANAGES TO CATCH LANCE IN THE EYE WITH HIS THUMB! AHREN ELBOWS HIS WAY FREE, AND SLIPS TO THE CANVAS! HE DARTS BETWEEN LANCE’S LEGS AND NAILS HIM IN THE BACK WITH A DROPKICK! AHREN NOW ROLLS LANCE UP FROM BEHIND AND GRABS THE TIGHTS!!!!
Eve: LANCE KICKS OUT BUT AHREN IS ABLE TO REGAIN HIS FOOTING PRETTY QUICKLY! HE RUNS THE ROPES AND COMES BACK AT LANCE! STORY BOOK ENDING!!! LANCE IS DOWN! AHREN WITH ANOTHER COVER!!!!
Deadprez: JAMIE BREAKS UP THE PIN!!!!
Ahren Fournier (Off Mic): :noah: Dude, w-t-f?!?!?! Let me have th-
Gavin Kirkland: IN EXCELSIS!!! CANDICE JUST RAN IN AND FLATTENED AHREN WITH HER BROTHER-IN-LAW’S FINISHER!!!!
Eve: :lupe: I don’t think Jamie is impressed by that! He snatches Candice by the hair and knees her in the stomach over and over again until he’s driven all the air out of her lungs! Jamie grabs Candice by the wrists and THERE IT IS! STARDUST BREAKER! CANDICE IS OUT LIKE A LIGHT! JAMIE QUICKLY FALLS OVER HER FOR THE WIN!!!
Deadprez: 😐😐😐 SHAKER JONES WITH A DOUBLE AXE-HANDLE TO THE BACK! HE BREAKS UP THE COVER! LOOK AT JAMIE’S FACE THOUGH! HE IS LITERALLY SEEING RED AT THE MOMENT! HE HAD THE MATCH WON, THE PIN ON THE PERSON HE KINDA BLAMES FOR THIS WHOLE SITUATION, AND SHAKER JONES JUST STOPPED HIM FROM HEADING TO PAIN FOR PRIDE TO FACE MR. DEDEDE!
Eve: :lupe: Jamie slowly gets up and he turns his attention to Shaker. Shake is shaking his head, kind of realizing that he might really be in over his head right now. Shaker slowly backs up, holding his hands, not wanting any trouble. The Ace stalks him, ready to really kill him and finally end this incredible match. Shaker nearly stumbles over Lance’s body! :lupe:!!
Deadprez: Shaker is in the corner now and there goes Jamie! JAMIE WITH MACHINE GUN LIKE CHOPS TO THE CHEST OF SHAKER! SHAKER DOES HIS BEST TO FEND OFF THE HALL OF FAMER, BUT A SERIES OF SHOOT STYLE KICKS STOPS ANY FIGHT SHAKER MIGHT HAVE! JAMIE WITH A SPINNING BACK FIST NOW THAT CONNECTS WITH SHAKER’S JAW, AND THAT’S FOLLOWED UP BY FOREARM AND UPPERCUT COMBINATION! JAMIE FINISHES UP WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE AND HE DRAGS SHAKER OUT OF THE CORNER! JAMIE WITH A GALACTIC BUSTER TO SHAKER! THE PUMPHANDLE LUNG BLOWER HAS TAKEN ANYTHING SHAKER MIGHT HAVE HAD LEFT! JAMIE QUICKLY GOES TO THE TOP AND TAKES FLIGHT!
Gavin Kirkland: GENKI CANNON! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed: THE ACE IS GOING TO PAIN FOR PRIDE!!!!
Eve: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Deadprez: MYLES IS ALIVE! HE JUST FLEW FROM THE TOP OF THAT CELL AND LANDED A FROG SPLASH ON JAMIE AND SHAKER! ALL MYLES HAS TO DO IS ROLL OVER AND COVER JAMIE! HOLY SHIT! I CAN NOT BELIEVE HE MANAGED TO PULL THAT OFF!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I THOUGHT THE GINGER KID WAS DUNZO!!!!
Eve: MYLES FINALLY THROWS HIS ARM ACROSS JAMIE AND THE REFEREE IS DOWN TO COUNT!
Deadprez: AHREN BREAKS UP THE PIN AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND! AHREN GRABS MYLES AND HE PULLS HIM UP! PROTECT YA NECK! THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL CONNECTS ON MYLES AND AHREN IS NOW GOING FOR THE CO-
(That’s when the videotron clicks on, and we see Ryan Wilson backstage. He is leading two members of animal control through the back, and they appear to be headed towards Ahren’s private lockerroom.)
Eve: :skip: The fuck is this??
(Ryan unlocks the door of Ahren’s lockerroom and inside the room, lounging on a beautiful silk pillow licking her fur is Ahren’s beloved cat, Jennipurr.)
Ryan Wilson: That’s the beast I called you about that has been roaming around the halls. Seize it immediately and get it out of here.
Ahren Fournier: 😐😐
(Ahren is on his feet and he watches the videotron in horror. The animal control experts walk in and throw a net over Jennipurr!)
Ahren Fournier (Off Mic): WHAT THE FUCK?! LET ME OUT OF THIS CELL!
Gavin Kirkland: :skip:! AHREN FOURNIER IS TRYING TO GET OUT OF THE CELL! ANIMAL CONTROL IS APPARENTLY BACKSTAGE AT THE REQUEST OF RYAN WILSON AND THEY ARE TAKING JENNIPURR! THEY HAVE THE POOR CAT IN A NET AND ARE NOW LOCKING HER INSIDE A CARRIER!
Ahren Fournier (Off Mic): JENNIPURR! JENNIPURR! NOOOOOOOOOOO! UNHAND HER! LET ME OUT!!!
Deadprez: Dear Gawd. Ahren is distraught! There is literally no way out of this match hence the name and he is trying to pull the bars apart! The videotron is off now, but he’s seen enough!
Eve: HE DOESN’T SEE LANCE BLACKFYRE THOUGH! LANCE WITH A HUGE SPLASH AND AHREN IS FLATTENED AGAINST THE PRISON BARS! LANCE SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING AND HE GRABS UP SHAKER JONES! LANCE IS ABOUT TO FINALLY FINISH THIS MATCH OFF BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IS DOWN! HE DRAGS SHAKER TO THE CORNER AND HE IS CLIMBING UP TOP! OH. MY. GOD. LANCE HAS SHAKER WITH HIM AND HE THROWS SHAKER ON TOP OF THE CELL! LANCE HOISTS HIMSELF UP AND I REALLY DON’T THINK THIS IS GOING TO END WELL FOR ANYONE!
Gavin Kirkland: LANCE PULLS SHAKER JONES INTO POSITION FOR ‘FEARS ORIGIN’ AND FUCKING FLIES OFF THE TOP OF THE CELL! BATISTA BOMB TO SHAKER JONES FROM THE TOP OF THE CELL AND THEY COLLAPSE THE RING! THE RING IS BROKEN!!!! SHAKER IS BROKEN!!!! LANCE IS COVERING SHAKER! THE REFEREE FELL OUT OF THE RING AND HIT THE CONCRETE! SOMEONE NEEDS TO COME COUNT THIS PIN!!!!
Deadprez: IN ALL OF MY YEARS IN THIS SPORT… I REALLY DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY! THE RING IS FUCKING BROKEN! WE HAVE A MAN LITERALLY WINNING THE RIGHT TO HEADLIGHT PAIN FOR PRIDE! AND THE REFEREE IS JUST NOW CRAWLING BACK INTO THE RING!!!!
Eve: WAIT… GUYS! WHAT?? JAMIE…
Gavin Kirkland: JAMIE WAS OUT OF THE RING WHEN IT COLLAPSED GETTING A WEAPON! HE HAS THE INFAMOUS BARBED WIRE DIDGERIDOO THAT WE SAW THAT ROAD TO REDEMPTION AND KING OF ELITE! HE SMASHES IT ACROSS THE BACK OF LANCE’S SKULL AND HE IS RELENTLESSLY BEATING LANCE WITH IT! HE IS ABSOLUTELY UNLOADING MONTHS AND MONTHS OF FRUSTRATION, ANGER, ANGST, AND HEARTBREAK! THE BACK OF LANCE’S HEAD IS BUSTED OPEN AND JAMIE TAKES A FINAL SHOT… BREAKING THE DIDGERIDOO IN HALF! JAMIE LOOKS CRAZED AND WITHOUT ANOTHER THOUGHT HE DROPS DOWN ACROSS SHAKER JONES AND LOOKS UP AT THE PAIN FOR PRIDE SIGN!!!!
Deadprez: CANDICE SEES THAT JAMIE IS ABOUT TO WIN AND SHE FORCES HERSELF UP! SHE LUNGES FOR THE ACE TO BREAK UP THE PIN!!!!
Eve: SHE’S JUST SHORT!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP… JAMIE O’HARA!!!!!
(“Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA begins to play across the speakers, but for Jamie time has come to a stop. His eyes are locked on the Pain for Pride sign. He wasn’t even aware that Candice fell centimeters short of breaking up the pin. She is obviously heartbroken, having not been able to follow through on her promise to do this for Cameron, but for Jamie, this moment is everything. The referee goes to raise his hand, and Jamie lets him, and after a moment, The Ace finally sits up.)
Deadprez: Ladies and gentlemen, we just watched these six Elitists wage an absolute war over the right to compete for the Answers World Championship at Pain for Pride. A lot of people have said a singles match between Mr. DEDEDE and Jamie O’Hara is a dream match for them, and surely there’s a lot of happy people right now.
Eve: You can tell by the look on Jamie’s face just how much this victory means to him. He’s come up short on a number of occasions this season, not to mention last, and now he’s getting his chance.
(Jamie looks around the ring and locks eyes with Candice. She doesn’t have anything to say and looks down at the canvas, obviously dejected. Jamie finally climbs to his feet and rakes a hand down his face, soaking in the moment and no doubt understanding what’s going to happen next for him.)
Gavin Kirkland: It was a long road for Jamie to get to this point, but now we know what the Showdown Pain for Pride main event is going to be. Mr. DEDEDE will defend the Answers World Championship against Jamie O’Hara.
Deadprez: Talk about a war to end all wars…
(The camera cuts a final time to Jamie who has reached down and pulled something from his wrestling boot. He unfolds what appears to be a piece of paper or perhaps a picture and all he does is stare at it. Another camera is able to get a shot over Jamie’s shoulder and he’s staring down at the ultrasound picture that was given to him and his wife after her horrific injury at the hands of Mr. DEDEDE. Jamie closes his eyes, takes a deep breath, and holds the picture to his chest.)
Jamie O’Hara (Off Mic): For you. For her. For all three of us.
(He opens his eyes and takes a final look at the Pain for Pride sign.)
(EAW logo buzzes.)
