(The camera fades into a backstage corridor showing nothing but a gray wall. After a few seconds of silence both Allen Livingston and Sofia Clarke pop into frame. Allen from the left, Sofia from the right… disturbingly close to the lens)
Sofia Clarke: Hey! Hey! Hey! It’s ya girl Sofia Clarke.
Allen Livingston: Allen Livingston: Ay ay checkitoutnowitsyaboyallenlivingston… AND WE ARE BACK IN HERE GIVING YOU THE RUNDOWN ON SUNDAY NIGHT REBELLION… Sofia… whatchu got for them?
Sofia Clarke: Last week Scott Diamond DEMANDED that he be handed the Heavyweight Championship but what he got instead was a kick to the head by Michael Bishop that put his lights out! We haven’t seen or heard from Scott Diamond since… I can only imagine the mood that he’s in… but also, and dare I say the bigger story here is… what the hell is going on with the Heavyweight division and the championship? Hopefully we get some answers to those questions tonight.
Allen Livingston: So you led with a “hopefully”… SIS THIS IS THE RUNDOWN, THIS IS WHERE WE TELL PEOPLE WHAT’S HAPPENING ON THE SHOW, NOT WHAT MAY HAPPEN… WHAT WILL HAPPEN!! And what will HAPPEN tonight is we will see the in-ring REVOLT! debut of Impact as he takes on Reginald Dampshaw III… IT’S OUR MAIN EVENT AND IT’S GONNA BE WILD!!
Sofia Clarke: Absolutely wild!
Allen Livingston: Way wild!
(The camera begins to pan out and fade to black as Sofia Clarke and Allen Livingston keep going back and forth on just how “wild” tonight will be)
(The camera zooms inside the arena where we’re greeted by red and white fireworks shooting up from the stage. We see a few shots of the ravenous REVOLT! faithful holding up their signs. The camera does a full panoramic scan around the entire crowd before it settles in on James Peters and Rich Russillo sitting at the commentary table at ringside)
James Peters: HELLLLLOOOOOOOOOO EVERYBODY!! IT’S SUNDAY AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS… REBELLION!! WE ARE LIVE FROM THE DOW EVENT CENTER IN MICHIGAN… AS ALWAYS LIVE ON FOX SPORTS 1!! We’re getting closer and closer, Rich! The REVOLT 1 card is starting to take shape but as Sofia Clarke told us at the top just moments ago… we still have no idea what’s going on with the Heavyweight division!
Rich Russillo: Unbelievable Peters! You’re just as bad as she is. Exactly, we DON’T KNOW what is happening with the Heavyweight division so there’s no use in trying to speculate over it? Will we get questions answered? Maybe, maybe not. Let’s just leave it at that and get this show on the road!
(Camera pans to ringside where Nitro Kyx, JD damon, Khamid Altynbekov, and Kenji Shinobu are already seen in the ring waiting for their remaining two opponents)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is a six man elimination match!
(“Bad Motherfucker” by MGK featuring Kid Rock hits as Badass Kevin cavalierly saunters down the ramp to deafening boos from the audience)
Bella Braxton: From Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 264 pounds… BADASSSSS KEVINNNN!!!!
Peters: Kevin’s a guy who came into his match last week with a whole head of steam but ended up coming up short in spite of that. He’s trying to carry that energy over this week.
Russillo: Sometimes it’s the process and not the result that counts. The process paves the way for better overall results even if you take a loss from time to time. Kevin’s had a good process.
(“Run Rabbit Run” by The Hoosiers hits as a faint orange glow shrouds the ring and ramp area as Desmond Sutcliff strolls down the ramp to a chorus of boos from the audience)
Braxton: From Newcastle upon Tyne, England, weighing in at 234 pounds… DESMONDDD SUTCLIFFEE!!!!
Peters: Sutcliffe could be the guy tonight. He’s built some momentum.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Peters: This six-man elimination match is underway! Nitro Kyx is looking for JD Damon, but Desmond Sutcliffe charges after Kyx and connects with a clothesline! Khamid immediately goes on the offensive with a big boot to Badass Kevin, but Kevin blocks the big boot attempt, spins Khamid around, and hoists him up, connecting for the quick Samoan Drop! Kenji Shinobu now tries to go after Kevin and connect with a Thesz press, but he can’t get Kevin down at all, as Kevin now executes a picture-perfect Spinebuster to Kenji Shinobu! Kevin drops into the cover on Shinobu!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!…. TWOOOOO!!!!…
Peters: But Shinobu kicks out just before the count of three!
Russillo: You can tell Shinobu doesn’t really want it. Kevin has the look in his eye of a man that WANTS this.
Peters: Kevin stands Shinobu back up to his feet, connecting with a VICIOUS slap to the face that sends Kenji staggering back, now bouncing clumsily off the ropes as he unwittingly finds Badass Kevin who hoists Kenji high up in the air, giving that maniacal grin to the crowd before planting Shinobu on his knee for the Straight to the Bank! That GTS connects and Kevin hooks the leg of Kenji Shinobu for the cover!
Ref: ONEEEEE!!!!!!…. TWOOOOO!!!!…. THRRREEEEEEE!!!!!!
Bella Braxton: Kenji Shinobu has been eliminated!
Peters: Badass Kevin with another amazing start off to a match. He was a mad man last week but it wasn’t to be. Tonight he’s carrying that same energy over and it has immediately paid dividends.
Russillo: He definitely earns the “Badass” in his name every time he steps out there and competes.
Peters: Kevin now makes his way over to JD Damon and Nitro Kyx, connecting with a double clothesline and leveling both men in the process! Khamid is now back up to his feet and he’s trying to make a second go at Badass Kevin, but not before being blindsided with a big boot by Desmond Sutcliffe! The big boot sends Khamid staggering against and now off of the ropes, with Sutcliffe wrenching him in from behind on the follow-through, setting up something here – DEAD END STREET! THE FULL NELSON FACEBUSTER CONNECTS, AND DESMOND SUTCLIFFE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A HOOK OF KHAMID’S LEG!
Ref: ONEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOO!!!!… THRRRREEEE!!!!
Braxton: Khamid Altynbekov has been eliminated!
Peters: Khamid just couldn’t get in any sort of a rhythm tonight, and Desmond Sutcliffe capitalized on the grievous mistakes he was making. Kevin and Sutcliffe, the two dominant dogs in this match thus far, now look at each other and there’s a certain uproar in the arena, an excitement for these two alpha dogs about to pop off and put their best foot forward against each other – but instead it’s JD Damon attacking Sutcliffe from behind, coming at him with a flurry of punches, and Kyx attacking Badass Kevin – BUT KEVIN HAS Kyx! KEVIN HAS HIM! SCREW YOU! THE COBRA CLUTCH SLAM CONNECTS AS BADASS KEVIN ABSOLUTELY LAYS OUT NITRO KYX! KEVIN HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEEEE!!!!!… TWOOOOO!!!!!… THRRREEEEEE!!!!!
Braxton: Nitro Kyx has been eliminated!
Russillo: And then there were three.
Peters: And now after an initial onslaught, it’s JD Damon that has been ensnares by Desmond Sutcliffe! Damon was pummeling Sutcliffe with lefts and rights, but Sutcliffe shows his mettle by weaving through a few of those, now backing him up against the turnbuckle and connecting with a series of corner headbutts to the midsection! JD Damon is absorbing a whole world of punishment right now and it’s anyone’s guess how much longer he can stick around in this match at that rate. Desmond violently grips Sutcliffe by the hand, pulling him over from behind and setting him up for a Dead End Street – but Damon twirls out of it, going dashing toward the ropes – BUT NO, BADASS KEVIN CATCHES DAMON IN HIS TRACKS, KNEEING HIM IN THE HEAD AS HE WAS DARTING TOWARD THE ROPES, AND NOW LAYING HIM OUT WITH A DOUBLE UNDERHOOK PILEDRIVER! THE REST IN HELL CONNECTS AND BADASS KEVIN HAS THE SHOULDER OVER DAMON!
Ref: ONEEEEEEE!!!…. TWOOOOOO!!!!…. THRRREEEEE!!!!!
Braxton: JD Damon has been eliminated!
Russillo: Badass Kevin pretty much just took that pin away from Sutcliffe. Sutcliffe was about to execute his finisher but JD Damon narrowly managed to sidestep it and reverse, but as he was charging toward the ropes Badass Kevin caught him and laid him out for the Rest in Hell double underhook piledriver. Can’t think Sutcliffe is going to like that very much!
Peters: And you were right, Russillo! A hockey fight has broken out between Badass Kevin and Desmond Sutcliffe, the two men heaving lefts and rights at each other, trying to catch one another with decisive haymakers but both men weaving through and around the haymakers, settling for the jabs – BUT SUTCLIFFE WITH AN UPPERCUT! The uppercut sends Badass Kevin lurching backward, and now it’s Sutcliffe charging forward for an attempted flying forearm smash, BUT NOBODY’S HOME! Nobody’s home as that flying forearm smash catches nothing but mat! Badass Kevin tries to apply an ankle lock to Sutcliffe, unconventional if you know anything about his normal arsenal, but he’s pulling out the stops! Sutcliffe maneuvers his body frontward, using his incredible leg strength to deny Kevin’s attempted ankle lock and send him back-first into the turnbuckles! Sutcliffe immediately rises to his feet, charging toward the corner to connect with a running elbow, but nobody’s home and Kevin’s body crushes into an exposed turnbuckle at full force – KEVIN SOMEHOW MANAGED TO EXPOSE THE TURNBUCKLE – AND AS SUTCLIFFE STAGGERS FORWARD, HIS GLAZED EYES TURNED TO THE CROWD AND KEVIN FROM BEHIND WITH A ROLL-UP!
Ref: ONEEEE!!!!!…. TWOOOO!!!!… THRRREEEEE!!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Bad Motherfucker” by MGK featuring Kid Rock blares over the arena’s speakers as the referee raises Badass Kevin’s arm. Kevin taunts the crowd after he takes the W via exposing the turnbuckle)
Bella Braxton: The winner of this match by pinfall…. BADASSSSS KEVINNNNNN!!!!
Peters: It was a valiant effort by Sutcliffe, but tonight Kevin overcame five other men and thus far in Revolt has proved he’s a force to be reckoned with.
Russillo: Sutcliffe could have had him if not for Kevin exposing that turnbuckle. Some will call it cheating, others will call it savvy. But you know what everyone has to call Kevin tonight? Winner.
(The camera fades backstage to the office of Talib Bari. He has his stubby legs up on the desk when all of a sudden he hears a loud bang which almost causes him to fall out of his chair. He looks up to see a scowling Shackleford looking down at him)
Talib Bari: Ay! What the hell?!
(The camera cuts to show Shackleford approaching Bari’s desk)
Shackleford: Cut the shit, Bari. Look I don’t know what kind of operation you’re trying to run here but I’m sick and tired of being in the dark. The Middleweights know what’s going on with their title, as do the Welterweights, the Light Heavyweights, the Freeweights, and the Tag Teams! It’s only us who don’t know what the hell we’re doing or what we’re fighting for… I want that Heavyweight Championship.
???: Get in line.
(Shackleford turns around as the camera zooms out to reveal Andrei Sokolova and the crowd begins to loudly cheer)
Shackleford: I am in line… in front of you in fact so if I were you, I’d shut my mouth before I further embarrassed myself.
Andrei Sokolova: Okay but you see, unlike you I have a legitimate claim to that title. I’ve run through each and every opponent I’ve had… you on the other hand had a match yesterday… that you lost. And here you come in talking about how you should be the Heavyweight Champion… talk about embarrassing.
Shackleford: I lost to the man who was able to take out Scott Diamond with just one kick. There isn’t much to be ashamed of in that.
Andrei Sokolova: A loss is a loss, no matter what excuse you use.
(Shackleford and Sokolova get up in each other’s faces, nose to nose before they’re broken up by Talib Bari who tries to slide himself in-between the two)
Talib Bari: That’s enough alright? Look, I been meaning to clear this whole Heavyweight Championship thing up, I was gonna go out to the ring in a few to sort it out but you two have just saved me the trip… here’s what we’re gonna do, okay? Next week on Resurgence, we’re gonna have two #1 Contenders matches. One of them is gonna be between you Andrei and Ivar Akselsen… the other will be between Ryan Savage and Shackleford. The two winners of those matches will go forward to fight for the Heavyweight Championship at REVOLT 1.
(Shackleford and Andrei continue to stare at each other)
Talib Bari: Now that sounds like money to me.
(Shackleford smirks as he pushes Andrei away and the camera fades out)
(Camera fades to the ring)
Bella Braxton: The following match is scheduled for one fall!
(“Don’t Get In My Way” by Zack Hemsey hits as Ryan Savage walks down the ramp to a deafening 60-40 mixed reaction)
Bella Braxton: Introducing first, from Coconut Creek, Florida, weighing in at 255 pounds… RYANNNN SAVAGEEEE!!!!!!!
Peters: Ryan Savage means business tonight. Look at that face.
Russillo: Some would rather not.
(“Rotlaust Tre Fall” by Wardruna hits as Ivar Akselsen walks down the ramp and is greeted by a mixed reaction with more boos than cheers from the crowd. Ivar shrugs off the crowd, focused on the opponent at hand)
Braxton: And his opponent, from Gudvangen, Aurland, Norway, weighing in at 265 pounds… “THE KONUNGAR” IVARRR AKSELSENNN!!!!
Peters: You wonder how Savage is going to deal with the stature of Ivar. Ivar definitely is going to have a reach advantage on Savage, and he’s hoping to exploit that tonight.
Russillo: These two have gotten familiar with one another over the last couple weeks. I’m sure they’re itching to get at each other’s throats tonight.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Peters: The bell’s rung and we’re going to get this bout started! RYAN SAVAGE CHARGES AFTER IVAR AKSELSEN, AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A SPEAR FROM THE GET-GO! IVAR AKSELSEN DIDN’T EXPECT THAT AT ALL, AND RYAN IS LAYING IN A FLURRY OF PUNCHES, NOW CLOSED-FIST PUNCHES TO THE HEAD OF IVAR AKSELSEN! He’s unleashing right now and Ivar Akselsen can’t do anything but be a victim of this relentless onslaught!
Russillo: “Relentless onslaught” is exactly how I would describe it.
Peters: Ivar Akselsen is trying to turn Ryan Savage over and get in some offense, but Savage continues pummeling away with those clubbing blows! Ivar Akselsen finally manages to get a rope break from the referee, and the referee has to physically pull Ryan Savagae off of Ivar! Ivar finally gets some distance from Ryan Savage, but it’s Ryan again with an assault on Ivar, attacking him with those clubbing blows — SMALL PACKAGE PIN BY IVAR!
Ref: ONEEEEE!!!!!!… TWOOOOOO!!!!!…
Peters: A kickout by Savage! Savage is enraged he almost got pinned by Ivar after dominating the whole way through thus far! SAVAGE TAKES IVAR UP TO HIS FEET IMMEDIATELY, CONNECTING WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX! SAVAGE KEEPS THE GERMAN SUPLEX WRENCHED IN, TAKING IVAR AKSELSEN BACK TO HIS FEET A SECOND TIME, THROWING HIM BACK FOR A SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX — THE BRIDGING PIN!
Ref: ONEEEEE!!!!!… TWOOOO!!!… THRR—
Peters: Kickout in the nick of time by Ivar Akselsen! Ryan Savage is again frustrated by Ivar Akselsen’s persistence, taking him up again, this time for a Vertical Suplex! Ryan’s letting all that blood rush to the head of Ivar Akselsen before taking him down, and there it is! THE DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX CONNECTS! You’d think Ryan would be going for the cover, but he’s not quite satisfied with his performance just yet! Ryan takes Ivar Akselsen back up immediately after that delayed Vertical Suplex – IVAR AKSELSEN WITH A DESPERATION SPIKE DDT! A DESPERATION SPIKE DDT BY IVAR AKSELSEN AND HIS MOMENTUM CAUSES HIM TO COLLAPSE OVER RYAN SAVAGE FOR THE PIN!
Ref: ONEEEEEE!!!!!!… TWOOOOO!!!!…THRRR—
Peters: BUT THE KICKOUT BY RYAN SAVAGE! Nothing but action thus far from these two combatants, most of it on Ryan Savage’s side, but Savage didn’t expect that whatsoever! Nonetheless, that Spike DDT seemed to have taken everything out of Ivar Akselsen. He’s completely gassed, laying motionlessly in the middle of the ring. Ryan Savage is inching near the ropes, clutching on them for leverage despite very likely being in a daze. Ryan’s up to his feet! Ivar is also now quickly up to his feet, completely taking Ryan by surprise, but Ryan with a tweak to the eye of Ivar out of complete desperation, setting him up on the follow-through! STAIN! THE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER CONNECTS AND ABSOLUTELY LAYS OUT IVAR AKSELSEN! WOW! RYAN SAVAGE WITH THE COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOO!!!!!… THRRR–
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Don’t Get In My Way” by Zack Hemsey hits as the referee raises Ryan Savage’s arm. The breathless Ryan Savage scurries out of the ring after having his hand raised, celebrating atop the ramp for a brief moment)
Bella Braxton: The winner of this match by pinfall… RYANNNNNN SAVAGE!!!!!
Peters: Ryan came out like a dog tonight. Beating Ivar Akselsen is no small feat, but Ryan was an absolute monster tonight. Big things look to be on the horizon for this grizzly of a man.
Russillo: As for Ivar, it just wasn’t his night. He still has all the potential to be great.
(Revolt 1 advertisement is aired)
(“Don’t Waste My Time” by Krept and Konan hits as the lights dim and Lexi Sheckler makes her way to the ring)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Making her way to the ring first, from San Clemente, California… LEEEEEEXXXXXXXXIIIIIII SHHHHEEEEEEECCCKKKKKKKKLLLLLLLEEEEERRRRRRRR!!
James Peters: AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THIS WOMAN IS NOT IN A GOOD MOOD!! After being robbed of a victory last week… she it out for blood and I certainly don’t envy her opponent tonight.
(Sheckler grabs a microphone from ringside and brings it into the ring with her)
Lexi Sheckler: LAYLA… GET YOUR ASS OUT HERE RIGHT NOW!!
(The camera cuts to the entrance way but nothing happens)
Lexi Sheckler: I had that match won last week, I knew it, everyone in that arena knew it and I DAMN WELL KNOW YOU KNEW IT TOO WHICH IS WHY YOU GRABBED ONTO MY LEG! I’M NOT GONNA ASK AGAIN!!
(Again nothing happens)
Lexi Sheckler: Fine… have it your way. Just no, after this match… I’m coming to get you.
(The lights begin to glow pink as “Formation” by Beyoncé hits and Aria Jaxon approaches the stage. She surveys the scene before she makes her way to the ring)
Bella Braxton: And her opponent, from Los Angeles, California… ARRRRIIIIAAAAA JAAAAXXXOOOONNN!!
Rich Russillo: Aria Jaxon hasn’t been able to find much success in REVOLT! so far. And this isn’t exactly a golden opportunity to start building some success, any other opponent… any other time… but not with the mood that Lexi Sheckler is in tonight. Jaxon has a tall order ahead of her.
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: HERE WE GO AND IMMEDIATELY SHECKLER RUSHES TOWARDS JAXON… LOWERING HER SHOULDER AND SENDING IT INTO THE MID-SECTION, PUSHING HER BACK INTO THE CORNER… SHE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A FEW SHOULDER THRUSTS TO THE GUT BEFORE GRABBING JAXON AND WHIPPING HER INTO THE ADJACENT CORNER!! SHE COMES CHARGING… AND SHE CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK!! JAXON COMES STUMBLING OUT OF THE CORNER, GRABBING HER CHEST… AND SHE FALLS RIGHT INTO THE CLUTCHES OF SHECKLER WHO LIFTS HER UP… AND BACK DOWN WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX!! JAXON NEEDS A BREATHER AS SHE ROLLS TO THE APRON AND PLOPS ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!
Rich Russillo: But look at Sheckler here! Not allowing for Jaxon to take the break that she needs! Immediately following her opponent to the outside and going back on the attack!
James Peters: Sheckler gets Jaxon back to her feet… AND THROWS HER BACK INTO THE BARRICADE… NOW GRABBING A FISTFUL OF HAIR AND TOSSING HER INTO THE RING APRON!! SHECKLER TOSSING JAXON AROUND LIKE A RAG DOLL HERE AT RINGSIDE!! She rolls Jaxon back into the ring… Jaxon trying to make it back to her feet in the corner here now… SHECKLER MAKES HER WAY OVER TOWARDS HER!! SHE BALLS UP HER FIST… AND GOOD GOD A PUNCH RIGHT TO THE THROAT OF JAXON!! AND NOW A SECOND, A THIRD!! THE REFEREE TRYING TO PULL HER AWAY FROM JAXON BUT NOT BEFORE SHECKLER CAN DELIVER A FOURTH!!
James Peters: Jaxon comes out of the corner, falling to her knees and gasping for air, that was just BRUTAL by Lexi Sheckler and there’s no telling what damage may have been done! BUT SHECKLER’S STILL NOT DONE!! SHE GRABS JAXON BY HER TIGHTS… PUTTING HER IN-BETWEEN HER KNEES… AND THERE IT IS… KING ME!! KING ME DELIVERED TO ARIA JAXON!! THE COVER!!
Ref: ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THREEEE!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Don’t Waste My Time” hits as Lexi Sheckler gets to her feet. She looks down at Jaxon and mouths the words of her theme song to her, “Don’t waste my time”.)
Bella Braxton: Here is your winner… LEEEEEEXXXIIIIIII SHHHHHEEEEECCCKKKKKKLLLLLLERRRR!!
James Peters: WOW!!
Rich Russillo: You can say that again.
James Peters: WOW!!
Rich Russillo: I wasn’t serious…
James Peters: WOW!!!!!!!
Rich Russillo: Lexi Sheckler has just disposed of one of the most decorated female wrestlers this industry has ever seen, and she made it look easy! I don’t even know if Jaxon go so much as a punch or a kick in, this is one of the most dominating displays I’ve seen in a while!!
(The camera shows Lexi Sheckler at the top of the ramp. She turns back to look at the ring)
James Peters: OH BUT LOOK OUT HERE!! IT’S MALICE!! MALICE FROM BEHIND… AND SHE’S GOT A STEEL CHAIR IN HAND!! SHE WHACKS IT ACROSS THE BACK OF SHECKLER’S SKULL!! SHECKLER COLLAPSING ON THE STAGE HERE!!
(A timid Layla comes out from behind the curtain as Malice lifts the chair up high above her head and poses with it as the camera fades back to the announce table)
Rich Russillo: Tumultuous times in the Freeweight division for sure! And when we come back… for Freeweight action! Kassidy Heart taking on Sienna Jade with a lot on the line! Momentum for Jade who is just a few weeks away from competing for the Freeweight Championship and for Kassidy Heart… it’s about making waves in this division, a win tonight would certainly do that!
(Camera fades back inside the arena)
(“Confident” by Demi Lovato hits as the audience greets Kassidy Heart with a chorus of cheers as she walks down the aisle)
Bella Braxton: The following match is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Sydney, Australia, weighing in at 120 pounds, she is “Professional Wrestling’s Sweetheart”… KASSSIDYYYYYY HEARTTTTT!!!!!
Russillo: Kassidy Heart’s looking to prove herself tonight but she’s got some tough competition in Sienna Jade.
Peters: It sure as heck won’t be a cakewalk.
(“Resurge” by Gone is Gone hits as Sienna Jade emerges from the curtain wearing a holographic light veil with white fur at the edges covering her entire body. The audience responds as she walks down the ring with deafening boos)
Bella Braxton: From San Diego, California, weighing in at 135 pounds… SIENNNNAAAA JADEEEEE!!!
Russillo: Sienna’s definitely a favorite in this matchup, but she’s also got some stiff competition in Kassidy.
Peters: Could surprise her.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Peters: This much-anticipated clash is underway! Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart circle around each other in the ring before mutually applying a tie-up to one another. Sienna backs Kassidy Heart up against the corner, her back facing the turnbuckles, but Sienna is now turned over by Kassidy who then breaks the tie-up and connects with a knife-edged chop in the corner! You could hear the shriek from Sienna after that knife-edged chop by Kassidy hit its target.
Russillo: You could hear that one throughout the whole arena!
Peters: And now Kassidy Heart with another knife-edged chop to the chest of Sienna Jade! Jade again shrieks in pain before Kassidy grabs her arm, using her entire body’s weight to for the hard irish whip into the other corner, sending Sienna Jade tumbling down to the ground as she lands into the corner chest-first! Kassidy’s been doing the bulk of her work on Sienna Jade in the upper body area thus far. That’s a weakness she sees in Sienna’s defenses and something she’s clearly gameplanned to exploit.
Russillo: Sienna Jade just needs to make the adjustment. And a woman of her skill level? I’d bet the house on it.
Peters: Kassidy Heart takes the wobbly Sienna Jade back up to her feet, pressing her back-first against the corner yet again, measuring her for yet another knife-edged chop! AND IT CONNE–NO! Sienna Jade ducks under Kassidy Heart’s attempted knife-edged chop, connecting with a knife-edged chop of her own to the chest of Kassidy Heart! Sienna Jade is so enjoying the yelp coming from the mouth of Kassidy! Sienna Jade violently pulls Kassidy Heart forward and quickly turns her around for the Scoop Powerslam! It connects! The powerslam connects and Sienna Jade immediately gets a shoulder over Kassidy! The cover!
Ref: ONEEEEEE!!!!… TWOOOOOOO!!!!…
Peters: Kickout by Kassidy Heart! Sienna Jade thought she had Kassidy Heart put away, but her perseverance, her resiliency, she thinks she’s not going to be denied! Sienna smacks her hands in frustration, signalling to the referee she thought it was a three count. Sienna nevertheless takes Kassidy Heart back up to her feet, connecting with a few punches to the midsection, and now she’s going to go for that Fisherman’s Suplex! The RDG! NO! Kassidy knees Sienna in the gut before she can get her leg in position for the RDG, now pushing her off the ropes, meeting her in the middle of the ring as she bounces off of them with a running elbow – BUT SIENNA BLOCKS THE ELBOW, HEADBUTTING KASSIDY HEART BEFORE WRENCHING HER IN FOR THE FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX AGAIN! AND THIS TIME IT CONNECTS! THE RDG CONNECTS WITH THE BRIDGE!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!… TWOOOOOOO!!!!!… THRRRRR—
Peters: But a timely kickout from Kassidy Heart! Sienna REALLY thought she had Kassidy Heart put away there, but Heart’s just not going to die! She refuses to give up. Sienna’s yelling “STAY DOWN” at Kassidy Heart, but Heart’s not saying a word back to Jade! Whether that’s because of fatigue or just an innate lack of desire to give in, who knows, but it’s making Sienna Jade made as she smacks the head of Kassidy Heart! Sienna pulls Kassidy Heart back up by the hair, connecting with a knife-edged chop once she gets the groggy Kassidy back to her feet, grabbing her by the hand, and now Irish whipping her off the ropes and going for a running knee to the stomach on the follow-through — but it’s sidestepped by Kassidy Heart, who darts off the ropes and connects with the PCS Kick! That boot into the side of the blindsided Sienna Jade’s head! Sienna Jade is laid out and Kassidy now darts toward the top ropes. She’s setting up something big here!
Russillo: Sienna Jade is in no man’s land right now! Sienna Jade is groggily making her back to her feet, she’s stumbling around in that ring, and Kassidy Heart is stalking her prey on the top rope… What the hell? What the hell is this?! It’s Ms. Extreme on the ring apron! Sienna Jade rises to her feet and she seems to be having some sort of argument with Ms. Extreme! The referee is ordering Ms. Extreme to get out of ringside! But Kassidy Heart is still on the top rope! KASSIDY HEART WITH THE HEART ATTACK! THE TOP ROPE O-FACE CONNECTS RIGHT AS THE UNSUSPECTING SIENNA JADE TURNED AROUND, AND MS. EXTREME MAY WELL HAVE COST SIENNA JADE THIS MATCH! KASSIDY COLLAPSES OVER SIENNA FOR THE COVER!
Ref: ONEEEEE!!!!!… TWOOOOOO!!!!!… THRRR—
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Confident” by Demi Lovato blares over the arena speakers as the referee raises Kassidy Heart’s arm before she rolls out of the ring. Ms. Extreme scurries away from the ring while Sienna Jade looks on in frustration)
Bella Braxton: The winner of this match by pinfall… KASSSIDYYYY HEARTTTT!!!!
Russillo: Kassidy just had it tonight.
Peters: What are you talking about? Sienna was about to mount her counter-attack when Ms. Extreme threw her for a loop, interfering and costing her this match! Sienna’s going to look to get her revenge on Ms. Extreme after this, and that’s exactly what she should do. She deserves it.
Russillo: Calling it like I see it.
Peters: Get some glasses.
(The camera pans up to the titantron to a show a split screen of Nobi and Stone Murdock. Murdock sports a grin while Nobi scowls. Murdock is the first to open his mouth)
Stone Murdock: You’re welcome.
Nobi: Welcome? Hell is that supposed to mean.
Stone Murdock: You’ve been riding this gravy train for a while now. You rode my coattails to get yourself inserted into this match, you’re associating your name with mine to get people to actually care about you, you should be grateful. After all, this is the most relevant you’re going to be in your career but all good things must come to an end. February 17th, 2018, save the date because that’s when your fate will be sealed.
Nobi: You know, if your wrestling career can’t go any further once I’m done kicking your ass, maybe a career in comedy would be a great plan B for you. Me? Riding your coattails? I’m the attraction here, I’m the established name that’s been doing this for several years, what are you besides a deadset cunt?
Stone Murdock: I’m the man who’s walking out of REVOLT 1 as the Middleweight Champion, thats who I am. I haven’t been in the spotlight for long and I’m already a bigger name than you so what does that say about you? What is it going to say about you when I become the man who emasculates you in front of thousands in order to capture history? Your fate will be in one hand, my championship will be in the other. I will ascend to the heights that the deities you look up to never wanted me to reach, while you fall down the deep dark path of obscurity.
Nobi: You sound real confident about something that we both know has a snowballs chance in hell of happening, besides that’s pretty out of character for you. Aren’t you the unstable manic depressed loser who lost all hope and faith in life? Abandoned by God? Well shit I don’t blame him to be honest. You mope around like your life was all tough and messed up like we haven’t all been through some shit and had to get over it. You don’t see me running around bitching about my fucked up childhood because I don’t know how to grow up and move on. I can only imagine how fucked up your emotional stability is going to be after you lose to me at REVOLT 1. You might as well just go ahead and pull the trigger, we won’t miss you.
Stone Murdock: That would’ve offended me a long time ago, but I don’t subscribe to your ideals. You talk about the emotional stability of someone who has no emotions whatsoever. That got me nowhere in life, just like relying on a false sense of faith got me nowhere. I became the man I am today by taking action myself instead of waiting for a miracle, but that’s what separates the two of us. I make things happen and you wait for things to happen. Just like you waited for me to carry you to a championship opportunity, I’ve carried you long enough, now it’s time to drop you on your head. I don’t subscribe to miracles, however you’ll need one in order to win that championship against me.
Nobi: I’m not the most religious man myself so I’m not gonna get into a debate with you about that. However you do come across as a bitter overzealous athiest jerkoff who has to remind everybody at every minute about your beliefs, WE DON’T CARE. You’re no better than a religious freak. You’re a disgrace to this company and a poser, and when I’m done with you, you’ll be in the same place that I put the so called Prince of Phenomenal.
Stone Murdock: The Prince of Phenomenal? Well that’s a name I haven’t heard in 6 years prior to coming here, but congrats on putting a fossil on the shelf I guess, me however? It’s going to take more than a cheap beat down to keep me down, and you’ll find that out when I defeat you in a few weeks. Strap up Nobi, you’re in for the bumpiest ride of your life. I guarantee it.
Nobi: We’ll see about that, you piece of shit.
(The camera fades back to the announce table)
James Peters: Well folks, coming up next it’s our main event… RD3 versus a debuting Impact… competing in his first match in months, you won’t want to miss it!
(The camera fades back into the arena where we see Bella Braxton standing with a microphone in her hand.)
Bella Braxton: The following contest is scheduled for one fall…..AND IT IS YOUR REBELLION MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING!
(“Jerusalem” by Emerson, Lake & Palmer plays to vociferous and clear boos from the crowd as the lights go out, before a spotlight shines to show Reginald Dampshaw III, muttering to himself before he slides into the ring and raises his arm into the air for more boos.)
Bella Braxton: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Ryde, Isle of Wight, England! Weighing in at 225 POOUNDSSSS!!!!!!…….”THE CRACKED KING” REEEGINNAAALLLD DAAAAMPPPSHAAAAAAWWWWW THHHEEE THIIIIIIRRRRRRDDDDDD!!!!!
James Peters: Welcome back everyone, to THE MAIN EVENT OF THE EVENING! Rich, I truly –
Rich Russillo: Cannot wait? Yeah, yeah, yada yada yada, you say it every damn time we’re on out here you feel like a broken record. But annoying Peters aside, this is a main event I’m excited for once, RD3 going up against a legend making his REVOLT debut, Impact! Last week, Reginald introduced a new stable with the Wall Street Journal, The Chamber, and tonight this would be a great start if he were able to pick up the victory. I’m not holding my breath though.
(Dampshaw gets ready in the ring as the crowd eagerly waits. “Can I Live” by Jay-Z then blasts from the speakers as the lights begin to flash quickly, as Impact walks out wearing a leather jacket as he turns his back to the crowd, before walking down to meet RD3. Mr. DEDEDE trails not to far behind him.)
Bella Braxton: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Seattle, Washington! Weighing in at 240 POOUNDSS!!!!……IIIIIIIMMMMMMPPPPPPAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCTTTTTT!!!!!!
James Peters: CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, RICH?! IMPACT, ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST RENOWNED AND LEGENDARY COMPETITORS IS HERE MAKING HIS REVOLT DEBUT TONIGHT! THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE LEGEND, AND THIS CROWD KNOWS IT! I’M SO EXCITED, RICH! THIS IS WHY I STAYED UP ALL NIGHT FOR THIS SHOW!
Rich Russillo: I KNOW! IMPACT, PEOPLE! HE’S HERE, AND HE’S READY TO REMIND THE WORLD JUST HOW GREAT HE IS!
(DING! DING! DING!)
James Peters: THE MAIN EVENT HAS BEGUN, THE BELL HAS RUNG AND HERE WE GO! Reginald Dampshaw III and Impact, young versus old, a brash newcomer going up against a grizzled veteran in a classic old against new match! The crowd is clapping and cheering, they can’t wait to see these two fight as they circle the ring….and they lock up! Impact the slightly heavier wrestler able to go behind Dampshaw with a waistlock! Dampshaw falls down onto his knees and slides backwards, and now he is the one with the waistlock! GOING FOR AN EARLY GERMAN SUPLEX – NO! IMPACT BLOCKS IT AND SWEEPS THE LEG! Now these two are wrestling on the ground, but it’s the experienced Impact with the wherewithal and ability as he is quick to change positions! He’s on the right arm of the grounded Reginald, AND HE SHIFTS HIS LEGS INTO AN ARMBAR! HE’S TRYING TO RIP OUT HIS ARM OUT OF HIS SOCKET, BUT REGINALD ISN’T HURT JUST YET AS HE GETS UP AND QUICKLY GETS ONTO HIS KNEES! HE REVERSES THE ARMBAR INTO A JACKKNIFE PIN! IMPACT’S SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
James Peters: HE KICKS OUT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY THOUGH! He doesn’t even let Reginald get a count as both men quickly roll back to a vertical base! IMPACT WITH THE FIRST STRIKE AS HE CONNECTS WITH A KNIFE-EDGED CHOP TO THE CHEST OF DAMPSHAW! Damn, that echoed throughout the arena! Reginald lets out a groan, but Impact isn’t done with his assault as HE FIRES OFF WITH A SECOND KNIFE-EDGED CHOP! THAT WAS EVEN LOUDER AND MORE BRUTAL THAN THE LAST ONE! Dampshaw’s chest is starting to grow red, and Impact takes this opportunity to grab the wrist of The Cracked King and irish whip him into the corner! IMPACT QUICKLY RUNS OVER AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING BACK ELBOW TO THE JAW OF DAMPSHAW! The stunned Reginald groggily walks out of the corner as Impact runs off to the adjacent ropes, AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG SENDING HIS FACE INTO THE MAT! He hooks the leg, his shoulders are down for the first pin!
Rich Russillo: He kicks out, The Cracked King is in a bad spot, it’s been all Impact from the start and it seems that the experience is countering everything that Reginald has to offer.
James Peters: Impact looks like however he knew he would kickout, as you can see DEDEDE at ringside applauding and rallying Impact to continue! Impact grabs the head of Dampshaw, slowly lifting him up to both knees, before rebounding off the ropes! STEP-UP ENZIGURI! IT CONNECTS TO THE SIDE OF HIS HEAD, AND DAMPSHAW ALMOST FALLS YET AGAIN IF IT WEREN’T FOR IMPACT WHO CATCHES HIM FROM FALLING! My God, he truly is a great competitor – he hasn’t even let Reginald get any offense on him! Impact lies the stunned Dampshaw against the ropes, BEFORE HITTING YET ANOTHER KNIFE-EDGED CHOP TO THE CHEST! Dampshaw this time falls and barely stays up as he grabs the top rope, looking for any kind of leverage to recover! I don’t think Impact is letting him breathe however as he bounces off the ropes, AND GOES FOR A LARIAT! DAMPSHAW WITH A BACK BODY DROP SENDING IMPACT FLYING – BUT HE LANDS ON THE APRON! He’s still got that agility and energy as Impact looks to turn Dampshaw around – DEAR GOD! A CRACKING HEADBUTT TO THE SKULL OF IMPACT, STUNNING HIM! Reginald Dampshaw III takes this opportunity to strike as he hooks the arm of Impact…..WOW! A VERTICAL SUPLEX FROM THE APRON AND INTO THE RING BY DAMPSHAW! Dampshaw pulled Impact from the apron, lifting him up before sending him down with a suplex! Reginald turns as Impact attempts to rise to his feet, BUT OH MY GOD! VICIOUS STOMPS FROM REGINALD ALL OVER THE LIMBS OF HIS OPPONENT! YOU CAN SEE THE ANGER AND FURY WITH EACH STRIKE FROM DAMPSHAW, AND NOW YOU CAN SEE THAT HIS STOMPS ARE TARGETING THE NECK OF IMPACT!
Rich Russillo: He’s beginning to focus on that aspect of the body, and I think this is the unpredictability of Reginald! When he’s mad, he will attack and it seems to be working now! He wants to come out on top and be in control of the match, which was not happening for him earlier!
James Peters: Dampshaw continues to stomp away at the neck of Impact, before he goes behind with the waistlock….AND THIS TIME THE GERMAN SUPLEX CONNECTS! OH, AND RIGHT ON THAT NECK AS WELL! Impact just crumpled, he does not want to be in this position but Reginald still keeps that waistlock locked in! He pulls Impact back to his feet, SWITICHING HIS ARMS AND CONNECTING WITH A NECKBREAKER! YEAH, I’M STARTING TO SEE WHERE DAMPSHAW IS GOING WITH THIS! He’s targeting that neck of Impact and is absolutely relentless in his assault, adding some stomps after that neckbreaker for good measure! Dampshaw now grabs the neck once more, and pulls back with a brutal-looking cravate! He wants to cause as much damage to Impact, and it seems that this is the only way he knows how to beat him! It’s smart from Reginald, not going to lie, but Impact is slowly beginning to rise back to his feet once more! He’s clenching his fists and getting up, to a knee now as Reginald still has that cravate! Impact with an elbow to the abdomen! A second! A third! A fourth and Dampshaw releases Impact from the hold, as he reels backwards and grabs the ropes to recover….BUT REGINALD CHARGES FORTH! IMPACT LEAPS UP! FRANKENSTEINER! TURNING TIDES CONNECTS, AND I THINK THIS MIGHT BE A CHANGE IN TIDE OF THE MATCH!
James Peters: Impact has to be careful though, he almost landed on that hurt neck! Impact managing to pull a quick one as he rises back to his feet, with Dampshaw flat on his back, AND HE TAKES THE OPPORTUNITY, SPRINGING OFF THE ROPES! FLIGHT SIGHTS! THE LIONSAULT CONNECTS RIGHT ONTO THE CHEST OF DAMPSHAW AS HE LETS OUT A SHARP BREATH BEFORE IMPACT HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!…
James Peters: KICKOUT BY DAMPSHAW! I think Impact was actually surprised Reginald has managed to stay alive for this long, even showing a grin on his face! But that grin soon turns into determination and an cold gaze as he moves to the bottom half of Dampshaw…..AND HE GRABS THE LEGS! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE WALLS OF IMPACT! THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET, THEY KNOW THIS MOVE AND HOW MANY TIMES IT HAS GIVEN IMPACT THE WIN! HE’S SLOWLY TURNING DAMPSHAW AS DEDEDE SLAMS HIS PALMS ONTO THE MAT……BUT WAIT! WHO’S THIS?! IT’S – IT’S THE WALL STREET JOURNAL! ALISTAIR KINGSLEY AND CDW, THE OTHER TWO MEN IN THE CHAMBER LOOKING TO HELP THEIR LEADER HERE! WHAT ARE THEY DOING HERE?! THIS IS A MAIN EVENT MATCH! THEY CLIMB UP TO THE APRON, TRYING TO GET IMPACT’S ATTENTION! IMPACT SEES THEM AND LETS GO OF THE LEGS OF DAMPSHAW, CHARGING AT THE TWO MEN! BUT THEY JUMP OFF BEFORE HE COULD STRIKE THEM! WHY?! WHY ARE THEY HERE?!
Rich Russillo: THEY WANT TO HELP THEIR LEADER, JAMES, AND THIS IS THE WAY THEY KNOW HOW! THEY’RE GRINNING AS THEY SEE THAT IMPACT IS LOOKING ON AT THEM, TELLING THEM TO BACK OFF!
James Peters: The Wall Street Journal smiling – BUT THEY SHOULD BE WATCHING AS DEDEDE LEAPS OFF THE STAIRS AND ATTACKS BOTH OF THEM! OH MY GOD! IT’S CHAOS OUT IN THE RING AS HE BEGINS TO MAUL KINGSLEY AND CDW! DEDEDE IS HITTING CLOSED FIST SHOTS TO THE HEAD OF KINGSLEY, NOT LETTING HIM FIGHT…..BUT CDW! CDW FROM BEHIND CONNECTING WITH A BRUTAL BOOT TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! IT STUNS DEDEDE LONG ENOUGH AND NOW THE TWO ARE DOUBLE-TEAMING ON HIM! THEY’RE ATTACKING HIM WITH STRIKES AND CLUBBING BLOWS, AND IT SEEMS THE NUMBERS GAME MIGHT BE TOO MUCH! Impact looking on as he attempts to step out onto the apron and help his partner! BUT REGINALD DAMPSHAW FROM BEHIND! HE GRABS THE HEAD OF IMPACT AND HOOKS HIM IN! OH MY GOD! GOLDEN BUSTER! GOLDEN BUSTER! THE BRAINBUSTER CONNECTS, AND HE LANDS RIGHT ON HIS NECK! OH NO! OH NO! NOT LIKE THIS! NOT LIKE THIS! HE HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THRE—
James Peters: NOOOOO!!!!! IMPACT KICKS OUT! HE KICKED OUT! DESPITE THE ATTACK ON HIS NECK HE STILL MANAGES TO KICKOUT! THIS IS A TESTAMENT TO HIS ABILITY FOR PAIN TOLERANCE AND TO FIGHT TO WIN, RICH! WOW! It’s pretty bad for Liquid Swords though as they are down and out from the attacks from all members of the Chamber! Dampshaw still looks on in shock, as he begins to argue with the referee about the decision but the referee insists that it was a two count! Dampshaw puts his hand in his hair, looking on confused as to how he kicked out, but that shock turns into anger and hatred as he grabs Impact yet again! DEDEDE is still continuing to get pummeled by the Wall Street Journal….who will save them?! OH WAIT! MAYBE I SPOKE TOO SOON! WHO’S THAT RUNNING DOWN THE RAMP! IT – IT’S HURRICANE HAWK! OH MY GOD! IT’S THE LEGEND KILLA, HE’S LOOKING TO HELP DDD AND GET PAYBACK AFTER WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM LAST WEEK WHEN THE CHAMBER DEBUTED AT HIS EXPENSE! HE’S STRIKING THE HEAD OF KINGSLEY, THEN TO CDW! KINGSLEY! CDW! HAWK STRIKING BOTH MEMBERS OF THE WALL STREET JOURNAL WHILE DDD RECOVERS AND DAMPSHAW LOOKS ON IN SHOCK!
James Peters: LEGACY CUTTER! LEGACY CUTTER BY HAWK ONTO CDW, SENDING HIM DOWN INTO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR! MY GOD! AND HERE COMES DEDEDE! SPEAAAAAAAAARRRRR!!!! SPEAR TO ALISTAIR KINGSLEY ON THE RAMP, AND THE WALL STREET JOURNAL IS DOWN! THE CROWD IS GOING CRAZY AT THE SIGHT OF THESE THREE MEN, MY GOD! THE TWO MEMBERS OF THE CHAMBER ARE OUT OF HERE AS HAWK IS ON HIS KNEES, SMILING AT DEDEDE WHO NODS IN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT! Reginald was just watching that entire thing unfold, he wasn’t even focusing on Impact as he turns around – EVISCERATION! EVISCERATION! IT CONNECTS! IT ACTUALLY CONNECTS! THE CROWD IS GOING CRAZY AS IMPACT CONNECTS WITH HIS ICONIC DOUBLE KNEE FACEBUSTER, DAMPSHAW IS DOWN AND OUT! COUNT TO ONE THOUSAND, ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND, ONE MILLION, IT DOESN’T MATTER! DAMPSHAW IS DONE!
Referee: ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THREEEE
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Can I Live” by Jay-Z plays as the crowd rises to their feet and applaud, as Impact stands in the ring, wiping off sweat and grabbing his neck. He smiles with an evil grin as Mr. DEDEDE and Hurricane Hawk look on, clapping at the victory.)
Bella Braxton: AND HERE IS YOUR WINNER……..IIIIMMMPPPPAAAAAAAAAACCTTTT!!!!!!
James Peters: AND IMPACT WINS IN HIS REVOLT! DEBUT!! WHAT A MATCH THAT WAS, RICH… A PHENOMENAL WAY TO END REBELLION!!
Rich Russillo: You can put all the doubt out of your heads now… Impact hasn’t lost a step whatsoever! Dare I say he’s better than ever… and that’s bad news for the rest of REVOLT! Watch out! Impact’s back!
(Impact is shown celebrating on the stage with DEDEDE as the camera fades out and the REVOLT! logo buzzes)
