The trio have arranged their seating behind the Fight Grid anchor desk. )
Kathy Kush: We are back once again with our fourth installment of Fight Grid’s Pain for Pride Rewind! Good morning everyone, I’m Kathy Kush! Happy Fridayyyy!!!
Jake Mercer & Andy Dominguez: Happy Friday!
Kathy Kush: Today I have two gentlemen with me who probably need no introduction as they’ve made themselves pretty familiar with the EAW Universe for their own reasons. To my left is a self-professed EAW broadcast savante who’s called many of the biggest most memorable moments in modern EAW history, and to my right is an EAW Hall of Famer and wrestling legend, former Undisputed Hardcore Champion, and the man who I’m pretty sure will be responsible for my next raise 😀 EAW CFO, Andy Dominguez! Thank you fine gentlemen for being here.
Andy Dominguez: Thanks for having us!
Jake Mercer: The pleasure’s yours 😉 Mine as well of course, but mostly yours.
Andy Dominguez: Hold your horses now, what was that I heard about a ‘raise’? :whoa: Ummm I’ve got to check the budget books regarding that but I’ll be happy to get back to you on that.
Jake Mercer: Oh just give the lady a bonus Andy, you cheap fuckers can cut back on the 10 gazillion fireworks you’ll be blowing out of your asses for three days straight down in ATL to fund our bonuses. Oh and while I’m at it when the hell am I getting the company jet pass? I’m like a 10 year vet in this place damn it don’t you think I deserve better travel accommodations?
Andy Dominguez: I mean maybe I could bring it up in the next board meeting but you don’t even travel much anymore.
Jake Mercer: Oh God spare me with the red tape. And why does it matter if I’m not on the road calling weekly shows? It’s you guys who claim I’m too much of an asshole for national TV! The fact of the matter is, I’m an established vet around here, I shouldn’t even be paying out of pocket for plane tickets to my villa in Brazil, let alone the biggest show of the year with all hands on deck required! I invented NEO for crying out loud I INVENTED NEO! How is it that I’ve never been on the company jet?
Kathy Kush: You’ve never been on the company jet? 😮
Jake Mercer: Oh, don’t tell me YOU’VE been on the company jet.
Kathy Kush: :lupe:
Andy Dominguez: :lupe:
Jake Mercer: Well that’s just great just freaking great, who do I gotta blow around here to get some respect around this place?! :noah:
Kathy Kush: Sooooo big event next week right guys? (laughs nervously)
Andy Dominguez: Don’t worry about him Kathy he can be a little cantankerous but the guy knows his stuff. You’re certainly right though, it’s that time of year again, it’s the one time of year where you get the ‘Christmas spirit’ like you were a kid again.
Kathy Kush: Earlier this week I got a chance to talk to Sofia Clarke about her first Pain for Pride experience and how special it felt to her, before we get into our featured Pain for Pride rewind match of the day why don’t each of you share your experience on how it feels heading into the 12th annual Pain for Pride and how it compares to your first ever PFP experience?
Andy Dominguez: It’s so much different on my end because I walked into my first Pain for Pride, at THE first Pain for Pride up in Madison Square Garden as a competitor of course in the first CITV briefcase match. A match that I won *sniffs* by the way. But it’s just so different now because I get to go into this Pain for Pride more like a fan than I was able to during the inaugural event. At Pain for Pride 1 I was just as anxious and nervous and panicky as everyone else in the back because the pressure was on and then some for us to perform, the life of the company as we knew it was at stake. Now I get to enjoy all of the performances and truly sit back and appreciate the greatness, as well as the evolution that’s been able to take place over the years.
Kathy Kush: How about you Jake?
Jake Mercer: My first Pain for Pride as a part of the company was Pain for Pride 4, I remember when I was still wet behind the ears and green as goose shit as a road agent doing occasional B-roll audio tape to hype up some of the matches. The atmosphere then was just otherworldly, it felt like (and probably actually was) the most important thing I had ever been a part of in my life! Everything was just taken to a whole ‘nother level, and I still maintain that this event changed the history of the sport forever.
Kathy Kush: I was still in high school at that time and I just remember eeeeveryone talking about the hype for that show. Perfect seguey actually because the match we’re covering today is from Pain 4 Pride that took place in the NRG Stadium, then known as Reliant Stadium down in Houston, Texas. The match we’re looking back on today is from what was an instant classic, a cult classic, between two of the greatest to ever do it in their primes – Extreme Enigma vs Heart Break Boy for the EAW Championship! Jake, you have gone on record as saying this is your favorite Pain for Pride match of all time.
Jake Mercer: Oh it is goddamn up there, my opinion on that changes every day Kathy but this match is the quintessential example of how you can have a 5 star match without it being 5 hours long unlike the majority of wrestling matches these last few years! I’ll tell you another thing; I’ve talked to many a wrestler past and present, and so many of them have pointed to this match as one of their muses. I’ve had one guy who I won’t name but is a former World Champion tell me that this match actually made them want to BECOME a wrestler. That speaks volumes to just how epic this showdown in Houston was.
Andy Dominguez: I concur Jake, I too have talked to people who have told me similar things, this match made them love wrestling, it introduced them to the sport, or it made them want to become an EAW Elitist.
Kathy Kush: For those who weren’t around at the time, could either of you gentlemen give context to the kind of names Extreme Enigma and Heart Break Boy were during that time period?
Jake Mercer: :dahell: If you don’t know how big EE and HBB were back in their heyday you should slap yourself silly.
Andy Dominguez: They both, to this day, are two of the top 5 Elitists to ever do it in my book. No question. Both of their legacies are immortalized forever Kathy, and I had the absolute privilege to call this match and their entire season leading up to it on commentary, so I got to see their greatness in person. HBB’s greatness in 2011 cannot, I repeat, cannot be understated. There’s a reason why at the time the conversation was between him and Mr. DEDEDE as to who the greatest of all time truly was. In 2011 HBB could do absolutely no wrong, you could even contend that the entire year for him was as high of a peak as any wrestler in EAW has ever reached in a singular year.
Jake Mercer: No question, everything HBB touched turned to gold. Of course he was always a big star before and after that year, but that particular period where he walked into Pain 4 Pride the EAW Champion he was just ‘different.’ Straight up. It was like he vibrated at a different frequency.
Kathy Kush: Speaking of vibrating at a different frequency, how about Extreme Enigma?
Andy Dominguez: I think one of the things that makes this match between EE and HBB at Pain for Pride so classic is the fact that a mind like Extreme Enigma’s existed in it. He took this sinister twist as “The Human Codex” to force himself into the EAW Championship scene, and he pushed HBB to his absolute limit. In his entire career I don’t think I’ve seen anyone make HBB sweat quite like Extreme Enigma did.
Jake Mercer: The guy was a fucking alien, Kathy. His mind was completely from a different direction. He saw the wrestling ring and every component in it from such a third dimensional viewpoint. I feel sorry for anybody who wasn’t around to see him during his career because it was just obvious that he was not like us mere mortals. Even in the most high octane, fast paced contests, he saw everything in slow motion.
Andy Dominguez: It’s ironic as well because he influenced every single young Elitist who walked through the doors. Every young gun looking to become something went to Extreme Enigma as inspiration, but despite being such an influence there was no way you could ever replicate what he brought to the table.
Kathy Kush: Amazing insight you guys, I agree I look at the style of athletes and the type of matches we see on a weekly basis and you can really see their influence in the modern day style of EAW wrestling. Let’s venture on back to 2011 as we take a look at Pain 4 Pride – Heart Break Boy defending the EAW Championship against ‘The Human Codex’ Extreme Enigma!
( A recap of the Extreme Enigma and Heart Break Boy feud, including HBB winning the title, their confrontations, and the stipulations put in front of HBB are shown on the screen, hyping up the Championship match ) …
( The camera transitions to the arena, where the RA is standing in the ring )
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Announcer: This following contest is set for onefall… and is for the EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE… AAAAAAAAAA WWWWWWWWWWWWWWW CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!
( A massive fleet of jet planes from the U.S. Airforce are showcased above the stadium, flying high above the arena and massive patriotic fireworks blast in the sky )
( A professional US Navy color guard platoon walk out to the ramp, as they line down the ramp with their rifles, performing their ritual, as a marching band leads them on for their minute long ritual to the applause of the crowd )
( The Heart Break Boy’s music hits, as a jetplane zips over the arena, and the Heart Break Boy drops from that jet plane with a parachute open )
Announcer: Introducing the EAW CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNN…. THE HEEEEEEEEEEEEEARTTTTTTTTTT…. BREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAK BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOYYYYY!!!!
( HBB lands himself into the crowd, wearing a camouflage variation of his wrestling gear and the EAW Championship in his hand as he embraces the EAW Fans )
WWEFan: Well well well!! The Heart Break Boy DEFINITELY earns some serious style points for that showcase! And as the Heart Break Boy makes his way from the crowd towards the ring, you’ve just gotta enjoy seeing that side of HBB, the guy who can still enjoy himself!
Jaywalker: Oh definitely! If I didn’t know any better, id say HBB was ill prepared for this match already just by interacting this way, but you know what? HBB can be in the greatest of moods, and fight harder than anybody you’ll ever see. You already know that HBB is PREPARED for ANYTHING, and the only question is if he’s prepared for what Extreme Enigma might have coming against him.
( The marching band clears out, as HBB’s music halts and he’s in the ring, awaiting his opponent )
( The titantron shows a long sequence of numbers and letters, spanning through the entire screen, and interchanging repeatedly in a nonstop fashion )
Voiceover: A man that will not be decoded…
Voiceover: A personality that cannot be deciphered..
( The titantron blacks out, as a large opening of a trapdoor is seen from the stage, and a gigantic ray of light shoots out into the sky, making a large symbol in the sky with the words “Human Codex” waving across the entire sky )
( Extreme Enigma’s music hits. as an even more blinding light shoots up from the trapdoor, nearly too bright to be stared into, and as it dies down Extreme Enigma rises out from that opening )
Announcer: And the challengerrr…… From Jersey City, New Jersey, weighing in at 225 POOOOOOOOOUNNNNNNNNNDSSSSSSS……. EXXXTTRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEMEEEEEEE… EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENIGMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
( Massive pyrotechnics shoot from the stage, colliding with the very pyrotechnics that shoot from the rafters, and once colliding, create fireworks above the audience as Enigma makes his way to the ring )
Jaywalker: In a stunning display, Extreme Enigma and the Heart Break Boy will enter, easily one of the biggest matches of their entire careers! Extreme Enigma knows that he needs RETRIBUTION, that last year he was on the losing end of the stick when he came into Pain for Pride with a title, and left title-less… now this is his second chance! His chance to hit it big, his chance to make up for that!
WWEFan: And a World title win at Pain for Pride is PERFECT in doing that, Jay, but that’s always easier said than done!
Jaywalker: Oh absolutely… this is one of those matches where both guys are JUST as hungry, and we reach the point where something’s gotta give….
( Both Extreme Enigma and Heart Break Boy are in the ring, as HBB hands the referee the EAW Championship, and the ref raises the belt, and hands it to a ringside worker before calling the match to start )
( DING! DING! DING! )
WWEFan: Extreme Enigma and the Heart Break Boy… crouched over, in the grappling stance, about to approach each other are slowly circling the ring… and they both LUNGE towards each other, snapping in a grapple, and Heart Break Boy snaps the side headlock, as Enigma quickly grabs the arm of HBB and wrenches that… and Enigma tries WRENCHING it again, but mid-way through he decides to irish whip HBB into the ropes…
Jaywalker: And as HBB rebounds off of the ropes, Enigma ducks down for a Back-body drop, but HBB LEAPS over Extreme Enigma, and as Enigma turns around to HBB, HBB sends in lightning-quick Knife-edged chops, over and over into Extreme Enigma’s chest, and connects a HUGE ONE knocking him down!!! And as Enigma returns up, HBB knocks him down with the first to the skull, as Enigma returns up again and HBB backs EE into the corner… and now HBB ducks down and LUNGES his shoulder, thrusting into Enigma’s gut!!
WWEFan: And HBB REPEATS those shoulder-thrusts, as HBB performs a back-handspring, flipping backwards as he jogs towards EE, and EE SPINS out of the corner with the elbow into the jaw!! And as HBB turns around holding his mouth, Enigma runs for the BULLDOG… But HBB ducks out of it, anticipating it as Enigma runs towards one of the Turnbuckles… and EXTREME ENIGMA SPRINGS DIRECTLY UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE, AND LEAPS OFF SPINNING AROUND IN MIDAIR, AND SENTON FLIPPING HIS WAY INTO A FACEBUSTER!!! A FLYING FACEBUSTER!! AND EE QUICKLY HOOKS BOTH OF HBB’S LEGS,
ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!…… TWOOOOOO, But HBB kicks out of that!
Jaywalker: Woah! What a move!! Extreme Enigma gets up from that, as HBB quickly tries getting back to his feet… and Enigma backs into the ropes as HBB returns up, Enigma connects the quick Spinning wheel kick, athletic maneuver, and as HBB returns up once more Extreme Enigma backs into the ropes again… and heads towards HBB, jumping for the Running Double Axe-Handle…. but HBB QUICKLY GRABS ENIGMA, AND CONNECTS THE TILT-A-WHIRL SLAM!!! GREAT counter, as HBB goes for a hook of the leg of his own!!
OOOOOOOOOONEEEEEE… TWOO, but Extreme Enigma kicks right out of that!
WWEFan: Enigma surely had some ease kicking out of that, being that HBB wasn’t able to get in as much power on the slam, or as much emphasis on the hook as he wanted after just being hit with several moves from EE…. and Heart Break Boy who’s back up barely before Extreme Enigma grabs Extreme Enigma by the head, and Heart Break Boy hooks him… and lifts him up for the Vertical Suplex, and HBB this time is holding Extreme Enigma up! HBB is holding him, and Enigma is moving his body trying to escape, but JUST before he does, HBB sends him down with that Vertical Suplex!!!
Jaywalker: And HBB sits up, holding his back after the velocity of that, and HBB capitalizes as he holds in an armbar, with the knee pressed into the side of the head!! HBB wearing Extreme Enigma down, not giving him any breathing room, and keeping Extreme Enigma grounded! After a short time, Extreme Enigma swirms his free arm to a ring rope, and HBB releases the armbar, as he steps back and runs RIGHT FOR A SHINING WIZARD!!!!!!!.. BUT ENIGMA DODGES, AS HBB RUNS GROIN-FIRST INTO THE MIDDLE ROPE!!!
WWEFan: OUCH!!! I don’t think ive EVER seen a Shining Wizard end that horribly!!! And HBB is hanging upside down slightly by one leg, and Extreme Enigma returns to his feet… and Extreme Enigma holds onto the top rope, and CONNECTS THE CANNONBALL!!! Also known as the Rope-hung dropkick, RIGHT into HBB’s face!!! And HBB rolls out of the ring from that impact! HBB is down at ringside, on all fours trying as best as he can to recuperate, and Extreme Enigma rolls out of the ring…
Jaywalker: And as HBB is right in front of our announce table, trying desperately to pull himself up, Extreme Enigma grabs HBB and SENDS HIM WITH AN IRISH WHIP, CRASHING INTO THE NEARBY STEEL STAIRS!!!! As the steps are knocked out of place, and HBB is on the ground, grimacing and holding his right arm in pain!! Extreme Enigma’ been able to cut down HBB to size, as Extreme Enigma with quick thinking heads towards those Steel Steps… and Enigma lift these heavy steps up, and TOSSES them into the ring for whatever reason.
WWEFan: Heart Break Boy is using the nearby barricade to get a vertical base, pulling himself up, as Extreme Enigma’s attention is back to HBB… and he RUNS TOWARDS HBB WITH A CLOTHESLINE, BUT HBB DUCKS UNDER THAT TO BACK-BODY DROP ENIGMA INTO THE CROWD!!!!! And the audience members move out of the way, some have hit by Enigma, but they all move out, as HBB still grimacing his left shoulder slides into the ring, and is headed straight towards the top rope!!!!!
Jaywalker: That does NOT look good for EE! Extreme Enigma stumbles out of the crowd, finally over the barricade and at the ringside, and HBB is up at the top turnbuckle awaiting Extreme Enigma to reach a full vertical base….. and in a moment he does, as HBB LEAPS DIRECTLY OFF!!!… AND EXTREME ENIGMA CONNECTS A CORKSCREW DIVING CROSSBODY, TAKING EXTREME ENIGMA DOWN!!!! WHAT A MOVE ON THE PART OF HBB!! The Heart Break Boy with that precisive move has brought himself back, and HBB takes a moment to himself to recuperate everything… and HBB pulls up EE to slide Enigma into the ring.
WWEFan: HBB rolls in the ring, and HBB covers Extreme Enigma now!
WWEFan: THRR, NO, Extreme Enigma kicks right out! And Enigma sits up, just trying a way to get up, as HBB slides back out of the ring, and instantly flips up the ring apron to see what he can find under the ring…. and HBB pulls out several trash can lids, several stop signs and a Steel Chair, and toss them all into the ring! That looks DEADLY!
Jaywalker: HBB slides back in as Extreme Enigma is on his feet and spaghetti legged, and HBB KNOCKS Extreme Enigma back down with a clothesline! One HELL of a clothesline, sounds like it could’ve taken EE’s head off! And Extreme Enigma returns to his feet, as HBB is somewhat surprised, and head behind Extreme Enigma to go for the Back suplex… but as he lifts EE, Enigma BACKFLIPS out of it!!! And as HBB turns around, ENIGMA WITH A DESPERATE ATTEMPT KICKS HBB INTO THE STOMACH, AND IMMEDIATELY HITS THE TWIST OF HATE!!!!!! WOW!!!!!
WWEFan: OH MY GOD!!!!! WHAT A SURGE!!!! THAT’S ALMOST UNNATURAL!! Extreme Enigma is down, after doing THAT to HBB, catching him in a slow spot, and literally putting a “twist” to this match!!! Extreme Enigma now rolls towards HBB. and gets his body over HBB for the cover!!! This could do it!!!
WWEFan: BUT HBB KICKS OUT! Extreme Enigma knows he’s gotta start going for another high-impact move to bury HBB into a deeper trench, and because of that, EE wipes the blood from his mouth, and heads towards a Turnbuckle climbing up it….
Jaywalker: The way EE’s climbing it seems like he’s going to go for a Moonsault, considering he did it from inside the ring, as Extreme Enigma is up top…. AND WOW!!! WAIT!!! HBB, WHO SEEMED TO BE DOWN AND OUT LIFTS HIS LEGS, AND KIPS HIMSELF BACK TO HIS FEET!!! AND EXTREME ENIGMA IS UP TOP, AND HAS NO CLUE, AS HBB RUNS AND CONNECTS A FOREARM INTO THE SPINE! Throwing off EE’s balance!!! And HBB turns around, and HBB HAS EXTREME ENIGMA IN A POWERBOMB POSITION!!!!! AND HBB IS FACING TOWARDS THE STEEL STEPS IN THE RING, AS HBB PULLS ENIGMA OFF OF THE TURNBUCKLE….. AND CONNECTS THE POWERBOMB FROM THE TOP ROPE, INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!!!!
WWEFan: NO!!!!!! NO!!!!! EXTREME ENIGMA REVERSES THAT INTO HURRICANA!!!! A HURRICANA, SENDING HBB INTO THOSE STEEL STEPS JUST AT THE LAST MINUTE!!! WOW!! WHAT OFFENSE!!!! WHAT AN ONSLAUGHT!!! AND EXTREME ENIGMA HOOKS BOTH LEGS OF HEART BREAK BOY AGAIN!
OOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOO, BUT HBB KICKS OUT!!!
Jaywalker: That was close!!
WWEFan: I know! Extreme Enigma just brought two huge moves in a row to the Heart Break Boy, and HBB is trying his best just to keep himself going, keep some type of pulse, as Extreme Enigma heads over to that corner where HBB had tossed several weapons in, and picks up the Trashcan lid… HBB is seated conveniently at a turnbuckle, which opted EE to do this, as he paces over to HBB and places two trash can lids in front of HBB… and Enigma backs up, RUNS, AND IS GOING FOR THE CANNONBALL!!! GOING FOR THE CANNONBALL AGAIN!!!!
Jaywalker: BUT NO!! BEFORE ENIGMA CONNECTS, HBB DODGES OUT OF THE WAY!! As Enigma ends up whiplashing spinefirst into the ground, with his legs propped up on the middle turnbuckle!! And HBB rolls to the ring apron, as he’s spaghetti legged, in BAD condition, but is running off of pure adrenaline!!! And HBB on the apron grabs Enigma by his hair from in the ring, and PULLS HIM OUT TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR FROM IN BETWEEN THE ROPES!! Enigma hits the floor gruesomely, and Enigma is just starting to return to his feet in a short moment… as HBB SPRINGS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE FROM THE APRON,
WWEFan: AND HBB CONNECTS THE SPLIT-LEGGED MOONSAULT TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING, SENDING EXTREME ENIGMA DOWN!!! HOLY CRAP, WHAT A SLOBBERKNOCKER!!! EXTREME ENIGMA’S DOWN, HBB’S ON HIS KNEES, AND HBB HAS GOTTEN HIMSELF BACK INTO PACE WITH YET ANOTHER DIVING MANEUVER!!! Now the Heart Break Boy is up, and he takes some time to breathe after what he went through in this match, as you can see a slight gash over HBB’s right eye… and HBB gets Extreme Enigma, and rolls him into the ring, and HBB slides in as well, covering him!
TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!……. But EXTREME ENIGMA KICKS OUT!!
Jaywalker: And now HBB is getting that look… HBB sits up… and HBB with that look in his eye tells the story, as HBB IS HEADED STRAIGHT TOWARDS THE CORNER!!! AND IS STOMPING AWAY, TUNING UP THE BAND, WITH THE ENTIRE ARENA BEHIND HIM!!!! AND EE IS PULLING HIMSELF UP, SLOWLY BUT SURELY!!! AND HBB STOMPS AWAY,
1!!!!! 2!!!!!! 3!!!!! 4!!!!! 5!!!! 6!!!! 7!!!! 8!!!…. **Enigma returns to his feet and turns around**
Jaywalker: BAM!!!!!! RIGHT INTO THE KISSER!!!!! RIGHT INTO THE MOUTH, THE HEART BREAK BOY PLANS THE SWEET, CHIN, MUSIC!!!! AND HBB IMMEDIATELY DROPS OVER EXTREME ENIGMA!!! THE HOOK OF THE LEG!!!
OOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEE!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!….. THRRRRRRRRRR—- OH MY GOSH!!! OH MY GOSH!!!!!!! EXTREME ENIGMA KICKS OUT!!!
WWEFan: HOW IS THAT EVEN… EVEN HAPPENING?!?!
Jaywalker: I don’t know!!!
( HBB spends a moment leaning over the ropes, getting his thoughts together )
WWEFan: Do you understand that Extreme Enigma just kicked out of the SWEET CHIN MUSIC??? That was HBB’s best shot, that was his best freaking shot!!! HBB can’t believe this! He’s pulling at his hair, looking at the ref, he just can’t believe this HAPPENED! And the craziest part about it is how Extreme Enigma is still rolling around! Extreme Enigma HBB knows he’s gotta stay on the offensive, so HBB heads over to Extreme Enigma, and is throwing rights and lefts into Extreme Enigma’s face, just to try to get him to stay down! Enigma is backed up on the turnbuckle, on his knees, and HBB is throwing several punches into Extreme Enigma’s skull… and LOOK! EXTREME ENIGMA PULLS ONE OF THOSE STOP SIGNS FROM BEHIND HIM, AND SWINGS IT RIGHT INTO HBB’S GUT!!! As HBB falls to his knees!!! Extreme Enigma with all of his might, pulls himself up fully, and again BASHES THAT STOP SIGN OVER HBB’S SKULL! And now as HBB is laid out completely, EE uses that sign and PRESSES IT INTO HBB’S THROAT LIKE A GUILLOTINE!!! EE IS CHOKING THE HOLY HELL OUT OF THE HEART BREAK BOY!!!! AND HBB IS FLAPPING HIS ARMS, DESPERATE FOR HELP, DESPERATE FOR RELIEF, AND ENIGMA IS SHOWING NONE OF IT!!
Jaywalker: But FINALLY, after what seemed to be forever, Enigma stops!! And HBB looks like he was just hit with a tractor trailer, just absolute roadkill! And HBB quickly gets himself up to his knees, and then to one knee, as Extreme Enigma runs for the turnbuckle… and as HBB is up, ENIGMA TAKES HIM BACK DOWN WITH a WHISPER IN THE WIND!!! AND HOOKS THE LEG!!! HERE WE GO!!!
OOOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEE…. TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!……….. THR-R-E-E, NO!!!
Jaywalker: HBB KICKS OUT!!! And I think we all know what Extreme Enigma must do! Extreme Enigma sits up, and looks right at the turnbuckle, the sword that he’s both lived and died by for his entire career!
WWEFan: As Enigma stumbles over to the Turnbuckle, this is his LAST SHOT, his ONLY shot! And Extreme Enigma has gotta make the most of it, as he steps onto the apron, and climbs all the way up!!! Extreme Enigma is all the way up top!!! Enigma is STANDING AT THE TOP OF THE TURNBUCKLE….. BUT….. WAIT…… ENIGMA JUMPS DOWN???
Jaywalker: What’s the meaning of this????
WWEFan: Enigma just stopped himself from hitting the Swanton Bomb!!! AND NOW EXTREME ENIGMA HEADS TOWARDS HBB’S LEGS!!!! EXTREME ENIGMA IS GOING TO LOCK IN THE CodeX CLOVERLEAF!!!!! HE’S LOCKING IT IN!!!! HE’S GOT IT!!!!! HE’S GOT THE CODEX CLOVERLEAF THAT HE INTRODUCED LAST SUNDAY LOCKED IN!!!!
Jaywalker: HE’S GOT IT SYNCHED… EXTREME ENIGMA WITH EVERY SINGLE FIBER OF HIS BEING AND ALL OF HIS MIGHT HAS THE CODEX CLOVERLEAF LOCKED IN! HBB HAS NO OPTIONS!! HBB IS PRETTY MUCH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, AND HBB IS TRYING TO USE HIS LEG STRENGTH, BUT HONESTLY, HE’S BEAT! HE CAN’T CONTINUE! THERE SEEMS TO BE NO AMOUNT OF LEG STRENGTH THAT WILL STOP ENIGMA NOW, THIS IS THE CODEX CLOVERLEAF, A MOVE THAT CANNOT BE BROKEN BY A MAN, THIS IS THE CODE THAT CAN NEVER BE SOLVED. HBB IS LOSING CONSCIOUSNESS, HE’S LOSING STRENGTH, HE’S LOSING HOPE, AND HE’S LOSING THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP RIGHT BEFORE HIS VERY EYES!!! HBB IS LEFT WITH LITTLE TO DO, AND NOTHING LEFT IN HIM, AAANDDDDDDDDDD…. ITS OVER.
WWEFan: No, that’s not a tap, that’s a reach for the STEEL CHAIR ON THE GROUND! AND HE GRABS HOLD OF IT!!!!! AND HBB, WITH HOLD OF THE CHAIR SWINGS IT BACKWARDS, AS IT CONNECTS RIGHT INTO THE BACK OF EE’S HEAD AND INTO HIS BACK! AND HBB SWINGS IT AGAIN, AND AGAIN, OVER AND OVER INTO EXTREME ENIGMA, BUT EE WONT BUDGE!!! HBB HAS VERY LITTLE REACH, HE JUST KEEPS SWINGING IT BACK WITH THOSE WILD SHOTS HITTING, UNTIL FINALLY EXTREME ENIGMA STARTS GETTING DIZZY AFTER THOSE REPEATED SHOTS TO THE HEAD, AND HE RELEASES IT!!!
Jaywalker: And HBB with his lower body seemingly crushed still finds a way to return to his feet, despite being dazed and confused! HBB is grimacing in pain, as Extreme Enigma was dizzy for a moment and turns back around… and Extreme Enigma RUNS TOWARDS HBB…. BUT HBB SWINGS THE STEEL CHAIR INTO EXTREME ENIGMA’S GUT!!!! AS EXTREME ENIGMA BENDS OVER, HOLDING HIS STOMACH IN AGONY! AND HBB QUICKLY PLACES EXTREME ENIGMA’S HEAD IN BETWEEN THE FLAPS OF THE STEEL CHAIR, AS HBB BACKS UP AND CONNECTS THE SWEET CHIN MUSIC!!!!!!!!! AND ITS HITS AGAIN!!!!!!!!! IT HITS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! BUT THIS TIME EE FALLS BACK WITH HIS HEAD STUCK IN BETWEEN THAT CHAIR!!! MY GOSH, THAT KICK would HAVE SNAPPED EXTREME ENIGMAS NECK!!!!
WWEFan: EXTREME ENIGMA IS LAID OUT AFTER THE SECOND SWEET CHIN MUSIC, AND HBB DROPS OVER EXTREME ENIGMA AGAIN FOR THE COVER!!!!! THERE WE GO!!!!!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!…… THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
( Heart Break Boy’s music hits, as he falls back to the mat seemingly unconscious, with the EAW Championship laid over his body )
Announcer: Here is your winner, and STIIIIILLLLLLLLLL THE EAW CHAMPIOOOOOOOOOONNNN… THE HEART!!!!!!!!!!! BREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAK!!!!!!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOY!!!
Jaywalker: Fan, this is something that many can only DREAM about! This is the boyhood dream personified, the Heart Break Boy coming into Pain for Pride with the weight of the WORLD on his shoulders, and that weight I can say has been lifted!!
WWEFan: It was an AMAZING contest! An AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING contest! Extreme Enigma and Heart Break Boy gave each other absolutely everything they possibly had, they hit each other with moves we’ve never even seen them do before, variations that we’ve never even seen before! These two, without a doubt, gave each other a match that nobody here will EVER forget!
Jaywalker: And even THAT can be considered an understatement! Heart Break Boy, who is on the ground, tears flowing from his eyes, hugging that EAW Championship knows that he has fulfilled his DREAM, SOMETHING THAT HE’S WISHED TO DO FOR HIS WHOLE LIFE!
WWEFan: Absolutely! HBB is paralyzed from the pain, he gave so much in this match, and he’s feeling the effects… but HBB is able to hug that EAW Championship, embrace that World Championship, and know that he has RETAINED his World Championship in general, as well as his spot at the top of the mountain! AMAZING contest! AMAZING effort, Extreme Enigma should never feel ashamed of himself!
Jaywalker: Absolutely not! Extreme Enigma gave it his all, but the Heart Break Boy has the heart of a lion and the eye of a tiger, and THAT’S what brings his dynamic! Not saying EE doesnt have that, but the Heart Break Boy flexed everything tonight, and gave it 110% extra, and thats just what distinguished it! Personally, HBB’s gained every single ounce of my respect tonight…
( Extreme Enigma is seen layed out, laying in a pool of blood dripping from his mouth, and two teeth spat out, while the Heart Break Boy is helped by three referees out of the ring, and support him up the ramp )
WWEFan: the Heart Break Boy, STILL your EAW Champion….
( The focus cuts off at HBB, holding up his Championship up and his other fist up to the crowd in celebration )
