(EAW intro plays.)
(PREVIOUSLY ON SHOWDOWN…)
(RECAP: The recap begins with The ILLIONAIRES in the ring, gloating about their victory at Reasonable Doubt over Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava. They also gloat about laying down both members of Heavenly Hell and costing Constance Blevins a chance to be Universal Women’s Champion. Chris Elite pulls the Gawd Contract out and announces that at Road to Redemption, Heavenly Hell defend the Unified Tag Team Championships against The ILLIONAIRES. Not only that, but Chris announces himself as the first competitor in the Extreme Elimination Chamber Match for the Answers World Championship. Soon after, they were met by Heavenly Hell who get their dose of revenge from Wicked Games. The champions are able to lay out their challengers and give them the beating that they deserve. The confrontation ends with Heavenly Hell standing tall.)
(RECAP CONTINUES: It goes to Shaker Jones warming up backstage before his match before being interrupted by Shane Gates and his wife, Angela Grant. They place the blame on Shaker for being the reason why they aren’t facing Mr. DEDEDE for the Answers World Championship. Shaker defends himself, before being rudely interrupted by Ryan Wilson, who gloats about his victories over Shane and Shaker. Things get heated between the competitors facing each other tonight, but the loud voice of Lance Blackfyre gets the attention of the four people and stops their conversations. Lance claims that he can fuck up the three men in this room before shifting his attention to Angela, which pisses off Shane. Before you know it, arguments begin to occur between everyone in that conversation. Jenny Punk makes her presence known and brings up the King of Elite Tournament. She informs them that those that qualified for the Extreme Elimination Chamber automatically get inserted into the tournament and since the chamber matches are already booked, she’s going to give these men a chance to qualify for the tournament. The competitive nature of all these men begins to show.)
(RECAP CONTINUES: It goes to Jake Smith cutting a promo, calling himself the best pure wrestler on the roster. He claims that the PURE Championship symbolizes that. Jake has a goal of making the title on his shoulder THE title on Showdown. With everyone talking about the Extreme Elimination Chamber Match, he refuses to get lost in the shuffle and vows that there will be a title defense at Road to Redemption. It doesn’t matter who steps up to the plate, but he will be the best pure wrestler in the ring. This catches the attention of the number one contender for the Answers World Championship, Harlow Reichert, who may want to attest to Jake’s claims of being the best pure wrestler on the roster. She claims that she is untouchable in the ring. She plans to defeat Mr. DEDEDE and proves that she’s really as good as she says. Jake brings up that if Harlow wins, she goes straight to the chamber and brings up her dislike of hardcore matches because it takes away what Harlow loves about the sport. Jake sarcastically tells her to win the title and go to Road to Redemption as Harlow tries to hold back on punching Jake in the face. The last thing Jake says to her not to choke on this opportunity like the other ones.
(RECAP CONTINUES: It pans forward to Harlow Reichert going to the ring and challenging Mr. DEDEDE for the Answers World Championship. Mr. DEDEDE’s music plays, but instead of DEDEDE, it happens to be his wife Kassidy Heart who appears in behalf of him. She states something about DEDEDE being sidelined for tonight due to “Load Management” and the two women get in a heated exchange of words. The two women implode and begin to brawl all over the ring and even taking it to ringside. After nailing Harlow with a spear, Kassidy brings out The Equalizer, who DEDEDE has taken out numerous Elitists with. Before Kassidy goes nail a double foot stomp on Harlow, Harlow manages to move out of the way and take control of this brawl, but referees manage to escort Kassidy out of the ring. It’s safe to say that there’s no love loss between these two women.)
(RECAP CONTINUES: It goes to the two Extreme Elimination Chamber qualifying matches for the Answers World Championship. We see Xander Payne take on Lucas Johnson and basically put Lucas out of commission. It forwards to the main event with the two former PURE Championship contenders Mark Michaels and Santo Muerte having a wonderful and competitive main event. Mark hits Santo in between the legs and manages to capitalize with a Downfall and steal a victory from Santo. The show ends with Mark gesturing for the Answers World Championship on his waist.)
(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar plays, cueing Saturday Night Showdown. As soon as the introduction is finished, it pans to the arena with a rowdy and sold out crowd in The Key Arena!)
(SCREEN BAR — SEATTLE, WASHINGTON)
Gavin Kirkland: WE ARE FINALLY ON THE ROAD TO…WELL… ROAD TO REDEMPTION, BUT FIRST, WELCOME TO SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN!!! I AM THE VOICE OF EAW, GAVIN KIRKLAND! RIGHT NEXT TO ME IS THE BEAUTIFUL EVE AND SECOND BEST LOOKING MAN ON THIS BOOTH, DEADPREZ!!!
Deadprez: Hahaha, so hilarious, Gavin! :unamused: But, Road to Redemption is in a few weeks! Last year, we found out two of the six Elitists who will be placed inside the Extreme Elimination Chamber, Xander Payne was able to take down Lucas Johnson in dominating fashion! Mark Michaels managed to steal a victory from Santo Muerte! But tonight, we find the final two participants who will complete Showdown’s chamber match as we see the Unified Tag Team Champions, Heavenly Hell take on Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava!
Eve: By the end of the night, we should have a completed chamber from the Showdown side; however, we are also going to see a preview match as one-half of The ILLIONAIRES, Chris Elite faces, Xander Payne and Mark Michaels in a triple threat match!
Gavin Kirkland: We will also see our PURE Champion, Jake Smith in action as he takes on the other half of The ILLIONAIRES’, Ahren Fournier!
Eve: Also…Load Management?!? :skip:
Deadprez: :skip: !!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Our poor beloved Chairman. Much respect that he’s been carrying this brand on his back. I for one, am very thankful of that.. :mjcry: Can we have #PrayForDDD trending on Twitter?
Gavin Kirkland: :noah: !!!!
( Focus is set on Gina Romano standing front and center in the ring with the microphone in her hand, prepared to announce the first match. )
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen this next match is scheduled for one fall… and IS FOR THE EEEEEEAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWW ANSSSSWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWERSSSS CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!
Deadprez: WE’RE GONNA DO THIS.
Gavin Kirkland: RIGHT NOW? ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH RIGHT NOW?
( “Castle” by Halsey plays, and Harlow Reichert walks out to a THUNDEROUS ovation in the Key Arena. Fans jump out of their seat for her, leaving even her taken aback as she is dressed to compete with determination and a fire in her eyes. )
Gina Romano: Introducing THE CHALLENGER! From Christchurch, New Zealand, HAARRRRRLLLLLLLLOOOOWWWWWWW RREEEIIIIICHHEEEEEEEEEEERTTTTT!!!!
Eve: Harlow Reichert is wasting no time here as Saturday Night Showdown emanates live from the Key Arena here in Seattle, Washington in an event that’s been sold out for months! However I’m not sure if these fans had any idea they’d be witnessing a show opening Answers World Championship match this evening!
Gavin Kirkland: Welllll let’s not get gullible all of a sudden, I don’t want to be a debbie downer or whatever but I’ve heard nothing about Mr. DEDEDE’s presence in the building tonight! The last time I heard, Mr. DEDEDE was set to miss this event citing “Load Management”, whatever happened to managing the loads?!
Eve: Why don’t you learn how to manage your load, Gavin.
Gavin Kirkland: Why don’t you teach me :mjlit:
Deadprez: Well look I mean we work for an elusive Chairman, the man could be on the helicopter above the arena as we speak for all we know!
Gavin Kirkland: But what we do know for certain is that Harlow Reichert is prepared for the tallest task of her professional career – possibly even her life! She is coming for the king and as Omar in the wire said best, she had best not miss, because that could VERY well end up being her head. And it damn sure isn’t a fancy colloquialism when we’re talking about The Gawd, we are talking about the most cold blooded ruthless mercenary in history. I hope, I HOPE Harlow is prepared.
Eve: At the very least, she appears to be that way. Will we see the Chairman in action tonight despite the controversial match cancellation from this week???
( Harlow is in the ring pacing around and keeping her eyes focused in the direction of the massive Showdown HD set, waiting for her opponent behind the curtain. “Castle” dies down, and she is immediately met with chants of “HARLOW!” “HARLOW!” “HARLOW!” “HARLOW!” )
( Harlow continues to wait in the ring, egging the crowd on while the camera pans around to signs reading “HARLOW4AWC” and “DDDFEARSHARLOW” among others from the rabid audience. )
( “Put Em’ Up” by Lupe Fiasco plays, and the audience becomes unglued with boos as Kassidy Heart walks out with a look of disdain on her face. She is fully dressed to compete in a long black tights variation of her ring gear, and she has a microphone in hand that she prepares to speak into while remaining on the stage. “Put Em’ Up” dies down, and Kassidy looks around at the booing audience with an eyebrow raised – not used to the full fledged heat coming from an EAW audience. )
Kassidy Heart: Hello again, Harlow. (to the crowd) I’m not entirely sure what you lot were expecting. It was made abundantly clear just days ago on EAW’s official website, as well as sports media all across the country, that my client and my boo, The Gawd himself would NOT be competing here in Seattle, Washington tonight. Due to Load Management.
( Thunderous boos come from the audience. Harlow is in the ring without a microphone speaking inaudibly, albeit visibly furious. )
Kassidy Heart: Don’t get me wrong, DaddyGawd would have loved to come out here and compete in what would undoubtedly have been a five star thriller right here, tonight, for all of you ‘great people’. He is the most driven and determined man I’ve ever met, there is no question his aim was to come here and put smiles on all of you good folk’s faces like the dedicated sports entertainer that he is. (Kassidy makes a belching face) Oh Harlow sorry hunny, I know you’re a dense little twit so in case you didn’t catch on by now that was actually sarcasm. The Gawd doesn’t give a flying fuck about wasting his time with you tonight.
If you MUST KNOW, my man has been absolutely swamped with his hands-on approach to the production for his upcoming GAWDVERBS Live™ three-part HBO Special, premiering on Sunday December 1st by the way! You will not believe the tremendous amount of effort it takes to put together something of such sublime quality under such short notice, but I’ve taken a sneak peak and it has been nothing short of a work of art. The simple fact is Harlow, you just aren’t even top 15 on his list of priorities right now. Especially since, as I said last week, one lucky break against three other curtain jerkers far from qualifies you to compete for World Championship gold.
( Harlow is staring daggers through Kassidy. Kassidy chuckles to herself, and continues. )
Kassidy Heart: But I’ll tell you this. I won’t have a repeat of last week. I’m not here to stir up any unnecessary drama, I got my fill of that last week thankyouverymuch. But as fate would have it, you’re up there fired up, ready to go, prepared to take on the absolute best in the world. And here I am, also dressed to compete, also ready to go, and standing here now as the best wrestler on the face of the planet. So how about I cut you a break, Harlot. How about I walk down there..
( Kassidy begins walking down the aisle. )
Kassidy Heart: I step into that ring.
( Kassidy continues, and Harlow is in the ring bracing herself, spoiling for a fight. )
Kassidy Heart: And I see to it personally that my sir, Mr. DEDEDE himself, grants you a World Championship match under one condition. That you survive me, in a match right here, right now.
( Kassidy Heart tosses the microphone to the ground and steps onto the apron. A referee steps between Kassidy and Harlow just as Kassidy enters the ring, and he asserts himself as the official for the upcoming impromptu match. )
Gavin Kirkland: Good God! It’s not an Answers World Championship match, but I’ll damn sure take it! Do you SEE that gear Mrs. Adams is wearing?! That tummy on flat flat and that ass on fat fat is a combo deadlier than Fentanyl and poor white Appalachian America! Goodness those tights are just HUGGING her voluptuous booty, what I wouldn’t give to roll them down from the back and suck every last one of DDD’s handprint marks right off of that sweet ass!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Eve: Handprint marks……….
Deadprez: WELL KASSIDY IS TRYING TO LEAVE MARKS OF HER OWN, HARLOW AIN’T BACKING DOWN EITHER! KASSIDY CHARGES INTO HARLOW AND SENDS HER INTO THE CORNER, WHILE HARLOW BEATS DOWN ON HER WITH CLUBBING BLOWS TO WHATEVER OPEN PART OF KASSIDY’S BACK SHE CAN FIND! Impromptu match between Dynasty’s Kassidy Heart and Showdown’s very own Harlow Reichert is starting off in an explosive way, who the hell could have predicted Showdown would be starting like this?!
Eve: Lends credence to the saying, anything can happen in EAW! Kassidy has withstood the oncoming blows and is firing off with blows to the body while a cornered Reichert tries as she might to fight back! Heart takes Reichert out of the corner by her hair but Reichert counters with a BIG BEAL OF HER OWN! Sending Kassidy for a right as well as a hard landing! Heart quickly scrambles to her feet, kick to the midsection, followed by a right hand! Another sharp jab! MASSIVE uppercut sends Heart stumbling backwards and tumbling through the ropes, but Heart reflexively stops herself and comes right after Reichert for a PENDULUM LARIAT MAYBE? BUT BEFORE WE CAN FIND OUT REICHERT CUTS HER OFF WITH A LEAPING LARIAT OF HER OWN! MOUNTS HERSELF OVER KASSIDY, AND IS LETTING KASSIDY HAVE IT WITH BALLISTIC RIGHTS AND LEFTS LIKE YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE!
Gavin Kirkland: The referee reprimanding Reichert, but you can’t blame her for dumping out her frustration the way she is. Another week has gone by and the Answers World Championship match she was promised and quite frankly earned appears to be nowhere in sight! The official now pulls Harlow Reichert right off of her forcibly, but Reichert turns around and shoves the referee’s arm away before giving him a piece of her mind. Again you can chalk that up to frustration if nothing else. But Kassidy Heart sneaks up from behind Reichert and catches her with a roll up!
Eve: Reichert rolls through! Reichert and Heart both kneeling facing each other! AND A DIZZYING SLAP ACROSS THE FACE FROM KASSIDY HEART!!! Reichert drops to her side, holding her lips that I’m surprised just didn’t go flying off of her face along with that slap! Kassidy Heart stands over her mouthing off a storm, and Reichert explodes with a flurry of strikes to the face even from the ground! Heart fires right back! There is clearly no love lost between Harlow Reichert and Kassidy Heart, and Heart is using her leverage to her advantage even finding a boot to the body in there before tossing Reichert with a wrist lock takeover. Heart goes hammering away with some elbow shots, but Reichert rolls backwards and up to her feet just in time to hit a DOUBLE FOOT STOMP RIGHT INTO KASSIDY HEART’S CHEST! FOLLOWED BY A PENALTY KICK STRAIGHT INTO THE BACK OF THE NECK SENDING HEART ROLLING OUT TO THE APRON! Harlow Reichert springs over the ropes clear across the apron herself… Kassidy Heart is sitting leaned back against the LED ringpost barely hanging on! AND REICHERT SPRINTS ACROSS FOR THE ROLLING CANNONBALL SENTON!!! WEDGING HEART INTO THE RINGPOST, UNTIL HEART DROPS OFF OF THE APRON TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR! Reichert jumps back up, riling up the audience while Heart is already back to her feet. APRON KICK!!!! CLEAN ACROSS THE FACE!!! HARLOW REICHERT COULD HAVE JUST KICKED THE MAULER’S HEAD INTO THE STANDS! NOW SHE DROPS OFF OF THE APRON AND ROLLS KASSIDY HEART BACK INTO THE RING, THAT COULD HAVE BEEN A FINISHING BLOW RIGHT THERE! Reichert finally manages to cover Heart in the ring!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWWWWWWW-
Deadprez: Strong kick out from The Mauler, but yo man that kick sounded loud as a gunshot!!! I don’t know how that didn’t scramble Kassidy’s brains just now! Regardless Kassidy Heart is keeping it moving, she’s definitely feeling it don’t get me wrong but Harlow Reichert is still very much on her. Hammering away with punches to the spine while Heart attempts to retreat to the corner. Reichert fires away on Heart with rapid fire European Uppercuts into the cornered Dynasty Elitist, former Universal Women’s Champion, 2019 Iconic Cup winner. An accomplished, fearsome, talented competitor for what it’s worth but also someone who might have underestimated another talented competitor in Harlow Reichert. And Reichert is trying to make her PAY! AS SHE EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER WITH A NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX BRIDGE!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO-
Gavin Kirkland: Reichert rolls through it again, and is attempting to muscle Kassidy Heart up from the floor for another deadlift Northern Lights! Kassidy hammerfists the side of Harlow Reichert’s head, and Kass goes for a standing switch, KASSPLODER PLEX!!! THUNDEROUS GERMAN SUPLEX, AND SHE ROLLS THROUGH IT.. INTO ANOTHER KASSPLODER PLEX!!! Reichert tried to break apart the grip but Heart has that synched in and there is no letting go! Heart rolls through the ‘plex again, attempting the third… RELEASE KASSPLODER PLEX INTO THE TURNBUCKLE!!! Harlow hits the corner hard, is somehow still on her feet, very much dazed! Heart rebounds off of the ropes and comes charging back at Reichert, RUNNING BICYCLE KICK TURNING HARLOW REICHERT INSIDE OUT!!! REICHERT IS ON HER KNEES, POWWWW!!! THRUSTING SIDE KICK!!! THAT COULD HAVE KNOCKED OUT HER BICUSPIDS! SWEET GOD WHY ARE THESE LADIES HITTING EACH OTHER SO HARD?! IT’S LIKE THEY’RE TRYING TO DISFIGURE EACH OTHER!
Eve: That’s because they are! Heart with the cover now!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-
Eve: Kick out! A merciless display from The Mauler, who seems to be coming alive as the seconds tick by in this impromptu Saturday Night Showdown match up! Heart drags Reichert by the arm like she were a slab of flesh on the canvas, before STOMPING right in that wrist! Heart this time takes a fist full of red locks and drags Reichert again closer to the center of the ring, before firing away with a thrusting knee strike to the shoulder blade! Another one straight to the nerve area! A fist drop to the back of the head! ANd she drags Reichert by the hair some more. The official isn’t a fan of that, he’s giving Heart a verbal warning for the constant hair pulling. Kassidy Heart postures Reichert up to her knees, letting Reichert know exactly how worthless and lowly she thinks she is. And there’s a thunderous palm strike across the jaw! Another blatant slap across the face!!! And a third strike, as hard as she possibly can, so hard that it stung HERSELF!
Deadprez: BUT REICHERT RESPONDS BY SPITTING RIGHT IN KASSIDY HEART’S FACE! HERE COMES REICHERT WITH A SHOT TO THE MOUTH! BIG UPPERCUT OF HER OWN! REGAINS A VERTICAL BASE, SKULL SHATTERING HEADBUTT BY REICHERT!!! A wobbly Kassidy Heart fires back with a knife edge chop to the chest! Another stinging shot! Forearm strike by Reichert! Spin kick to the midsection by Heart! She collects herself and attempts to run the ropes, but Reichert comes right after her! Sends Heart onto her shoulders with a roll up! ROLL THROUGH! LOW SUPERKICK!!! Heart ate that shot hard and now she’s scrambling for a recovery, SPRINGBOARD BACK ELBOW BY REICHERT!!! Heart is all out of sorts, Reichert is stalking her ever so closely before scooping her up, vertical suplex – “AS I LAY DYING”!!!! BRAINBUSTER STRAIGHT TO THE KNEE! HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRR-
Gavin Kirkland: KICK OUT BY THE MAULER! Harlow Reichert is BRINGING IT! She is showing Kassidy Heart a hell of a fight, and proving to any straggling doubters that she is at the very least prepared for competing at a championship level! Harlow slowly brings Kassidy up by her wrist and sends her into the corner! She’s right on her heels! BIG CORNER FOREARM SMASH!!! Knocking the spit out of Kassidy’s mouth and now she’s trying to follow up with a FACEBREAKER OVER THE KNEE! But Heart somehow manages to hold her ground after being taken out of the corner and responds with a rolling elbow strike to the back of the head!!! Heart grabs Reichert by the tights and yanks her over to the middle ropes at a seated position! PICTURE PERFECT RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE TEMPLE BY HEART, SENDING HARLOW DROPPING DOWN TO THE APRON ON THE BACK OF HER NECK AND TUMBLING TO THE FLOOR BELOW! Heart is in the ring seated, dazed but looking down at ringside as Reichert gives all she can into recovering! That gives Heart the go-ahead in her mind to spring back up and rebound off the ropes again! MAULER COMES FLYING!!! SUICIDE DIVE!!! WITH RECKLESS ABANDON, SENDING HERSELF AND HER OPPONENT SMASHING INTO THE BARRICADE! HEART CHARGES BACK INTO THE RING, REBOUNDS OFF OF THE ROPES AGAIN AND COMES ALL THE WAY BACK AROUND! ANOTHER SUICIDE DIVE!!! YIKES YIKES YIKES THEY KNOCKED HEADS!
Eve: OH MY GOD. THEY JUST COLLIDED SKULL ON SKULL. DID YOU SEE THAT?
Deadprez: WE ALL SAW IT, AND HEARD IT. THAT..WAS BAD. We might actually need some help out here guys.
( Kassidy Heart and Harlow Reichert are laid out at ringside, with Kassidy in particular favoring her head while Harlow is much less responsive than her. )
Deadprez: As much as I hate to see that, we need to take another look at it.
( REPLAY: Kassidy Heart shoots her body through the ropes with great velocity, and Kassidy bangs the top of her head into Harlow Reichert’s temple with such intense speed that it creates torque in Kassidy’s own neck – before the two women topple on top of each other. Return to ringside, and the concerned official is leaned over the ropes ready to begin his count. )
Ref: 1!!!! …….. 2!!!! ….3
Eve: Harlow Reichert is clearly dazed and just looking up at the lights, but look at Kassidy! She has blood pouring out of the top of her head, that took just as much out of her if not more than it did Harlow!
Ref: 4!!! …………….. 5!!! …………. 6!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Kassidy is fighting through it, as she usually does, but she has split her wig and there’s no denying that. She lacerated herself on that diving headbutt, and Harlow Reichert herself doesn’t look anywhere near fighting condition right now.
Ref: 7!!! …. . 8!!!
Eve: Heart is attempting to use support of the barricade! Are they going to be able to take this back in the ring?!
Ref: 9!!! ……….. TEN! RING THE BELL!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( The crowd gives a tremendous mixed reaction, with most of the audience upset over the no contest finish. Harlow Reichert is on all fours, still holding her head after clearly having her bell rung. Kassidy Heart cannot be seen, and the focus is mostly on Harlow’s recovery. The fans continue to chant Harlow’s name, putting their support behind her and clamoring for her. They chant “FUCK HER UP HARLOW, FUCK HER UP” which appears to go in one ear and out the other as Harlow’s primary focus is just to get back up to her feet. After another moment she leans against the apron, and drags herself back into the ring. Harlow manages to painstakingly return to her feet, and loses her equilibrium until – )
Deadprez: WAIT WAIT WAIT!
Gavin Kirkland: WATCH YOUR BACK!!!
Eve: CHAIR SHOT!!!! KASSIDY HEART BLASTS THE STEEL CHAIR RIGHT OVER THE BACK OF HARLOW’S HEAD!!! GOOD LORD!!!
( Kassidy Heart stands over Harlow Reichert with a look of death, showing a slight streak of red trickling down the top of her blonde locks following the suicide dive collision. )
Eve: HARLOW CRUMPLES DOWN TO HER KNEES, ANOTHER ONE TO THE BACK OF HER HEAD YET AGAIN!!! KASSIDY AND HARLOW MAY BE FINISHED WITH THIS MATCH, BUT KASSIDY SURE AS HELL WASN’T FINISHED WITH HARLOW! ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT! AND ANOTHER! THE OFFICIAL ATTEMPTS TO INTERVENE, BUT KASSIDY SWINGS – AND NARROWLY MISSES – A CHAIR SHOT TO HIS SKULL! NOW SHE RETURNS HER ATTENTION TO HARLOW, THE MAULER HAS COME OUT IN FULL FORCE, AND SHE BRINGS THE HAMMER DOWN WITH A MASSIVE CHAIR SHOT TO THE SPINE!
Deadprez: THE MAULER LOOKING LIKE A WOMAN POSSESSED! THERE’S ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT! AND ANOTHER CHAIR SHOT! SHE IS UNLEASHING HELL ON A DEFENSELESS HARLOW REICHERT, AFTER CATCHING HER OFF GUARD! KASSIDY IS PRIMARILY DELIVERING THOSE SHOTS TO THE SHOULDERS! TEEING OFF! HARLOW ROLLS AROUND ON THE MAT FAVORING THE BACK OF HER NECK! CHAIRSHOT TO THOSE FINGERS AS THEY’RE COVERED OVER THE BACK OF HARLOW’S NECK! ANOTHER ONE COMES DOWN INTO HER SIDE! AND KASSIDY BLASTS HER OVER THE ARMS UNTIL THE CHAIR IS BENT OUT OF ITS NATURAL FORM! THIS AIN’T NECESSARY AT ALL!
Gavin Kirkland: AND KASSIDY UNFOLDS THAT CHAIR, SITTING THE JAGGED, CONTORTED, TILTED CHAIR IN THE RING. SHE HEAVES HARLOW UP FROM THE MAT LIKE A BAG OF RICE AND CHUCKS HARLOW OVER HER SHOULDERS, INTO THE CHAIR, NECK FIRST WITH THE KASSPLODER PLEX!!!!
( Half a dozen officials run out and surround Kassidy Heart before she can continue the onslaught. Harlow Reichert is laid out over the disfigured steel chair that has been warped by being repeatedly slammed into her body. Kassidy Heart dusts her hands off and is escorted up the ramp, away from Harlow, appearing to be proud of her work. )
Eve: Kassidy Heart clearly saw this night as a success, much at the expense of the number 1 contender to the Answers World Championship. You’ve got to feel for Harlow, another week in a row she is deprived of her rightful championship opportunity. She goes toe to toe with one of the best living wrestlers on the planet tonight and is blindsided by a ruthless Mauler who reared its ugly head just as the dust began to settle. Harlow Reichert deserves so much better than this.
( Kassidy Heart continues her exit, and we see two officials stay behind to come to Harlow’s aid. She attempts repeatedly to sit up against the better wishes of the officials surrounding her, but the pain racking her body makes her unable to do even that. The camera transitions elsewhere. )
(The EAW Network, a place to watch Harlow Reichert face Mr. DEDEDE for the Answers World Championship…IF THAT MATCH EVER HAPPENS!!!)
(Showdown returns from commercial break.)
( We see a replay of the moments opening tonight’s edition of Showdown, where Harlow Reichert appeared prepared to challenge for the Answers World Championship. She would be confronted by Kassidy Heart, who hypes up her husband and informs Harlow that he is not in the arena and furthermore is not interested in facing her. Kassidy then challenges Harlow to a match, telling her that if she can ‘survive’ Kassidy she will get the title shot she believes she has earned. After highlights of the hard nosed style match are shown, it comes to a crashing halt during a head-to-head collision mid-suicide dive, temporarily leaving both Elitists down for the double countout. Following the match Harlow managed to will herself back into the ring and back up to her feet, only to be met with a blood curdling assault courtesy of Kassidy Heart and a steel chair. )
( Camera opens up backstage, where we see a sweaty, bruised and battered Harlow Reichert limping with the aid of a medical official while carrying a bag of ice over her bruised shoulders. The mental and physical exhaustion and frustration are palpable, as it can be seen on her facial expression. Harlow is approached by Molly Waters who has a microphone in her hand. )
Molly Waters: Harlow, obviously an upsetting and unfortunate night for you. If I can just get your initial reaction, if you’re up to it of course.
Harlow Reichert: Bullshit. That’s my initial reaction. I’m not a vulgar person, anyone who knows me knows this, I’m not some ranting raving edgelord. I’m not here to do that. But this is complete fucking bullshit. I don’t care what that glorified trophy wife says, I earned my title shot, nothing is going to change my mind about that. It’s not about a four way contendership match, it’s about all of the hours, more than I can count that I put into this. It’s about all of the sleepless nights I’ve had for this. The red eyes, the touring, the training to become better. The ridicule that I’ve had to face and overcome along the way. For what, for it to be spit on? I’ll be damned. I’d rather die than roll over, and I’m not rolling over for DEDEDE or his STUPID WIFE.
( Harlow sntches the microphone from Molly and turns to the camera. )
Harlow Reichert: Kassidy I did more out there than survive against you. I pushed you further than you were expecting to be pushed tonight, and you know it. It’s not about you, it’s not even about you DDD, wherever you’re watching this from, coward. It’s about the Answers World Championship and all that I’ve sacrificed to even have this opportunity. I’ll tell you what, I’ll play your game. I’ll fight fire with fire. I’m not an “EAW Extremist” or some deathmatch junkie like your rabies having scum sucking wife, but for the likes of you and her I’ll make an exception. I had Kassidy’s number, but time wasn’t on our side. She used whatever weapons she could get her hands on to get one over on me, but next week I’ll be fully prepared for all of it. She was fortunate, but you won’t be so fortunate.
That Answers World Title shot belongs to me, and I’ll raise hell all the way from here to New Jersey if it means getting what I earned. And just to make sure you don’t get off on technicalities the same way Kass did, let’s throw every last one of them out of the rule book. I’m invoking my title match whether you like it or not NEXT WEEK, and since it’s my title match to invoke we can gladly make this an EXTREME RULES MATCH.
( The crowd loses their minds, many of EAW’s faithful in the audience chant “EAW” hearkening back to the days where Extreme Rules was the norm. )
Harlow Reichert: Let’s do this DDD, next week, enough of the hiding you spineless old snake. Show yourself, so that I can show you exactly why they call me Miss No Fucks Given. I’m coming for your title grandpa, and I’m taking it in blood.
( Harlow mushes the camera out of her face and assertively hands Molly back her microphone before walking away. )
Gavin Kirkland: HARLOW VS DDD NEXT WEEK IN EXTREME RULES? ARE WE ACTUALLY GOING TO SEE THIS?!
Deadprez: The balls on this woman. A pure wrestler, an astute in ring technician is challenging GAWDZILLA to a no holds barred environment knock down, drag out Extreme Rules match for the Answers World Title! I don’t know if I can count the number of people on one hand in this company who are insane enough to do that.
Eve: Some may call it insanity, but I call it drive. Just when I think I couldn’t respect Harlow any more, we’ll see where fate takes her next week in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
(The camera pans to ringside with Alexander Cage and Petey Asdee already standing in the ring as ‘Pharmacie’ by SCH hits and SKA comes out to a mixed reaction from the crowd. He scans the crowd before walking to the ring.)
Gina Romano: AND THEIR OPPONENT….FROM PARIS, FRANCE, WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY SIX POUNDS!!!….”THE NORDIC KINGPIN”,,,,,SSSSS……KKKKK…..AAAA!!!!!
Deadprez: A new guy visiting from the Dynasty brand. I kinda like this guy, I can’t wait to see what he brings here tonight in his debut!
(Ding! Ding! Ding)
Gavin Kirkland: And her we go! Petey charges at SKA and runs him to the corner but Alexander backs him out and turns him around but throws an uppercut to Alexander causing him to drop to one knee….Petey runs and hits a knee to the side of Alexander’s face!
Eve: SKA turns around Petey and goes for a clothesline but Petey ducks under but SK catches him in an armbar! Alexander is up though breaking it up! He picks SKA up and throws him to the corner! Petey is up behind him though and connects with a german suplex! Alexander is back up and Petey…Sniper Valley!!! THE STUNNER CONNECTS!! BUT WAIT!! BEFORE HE COULD GO FOR THE COVER A FROG SPLASH FROM SKA ON THE BACK OF PETEY!!
Deadprez: SKA IS BACK UP QUICKLY! PETEY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND SKA PICKS UP ALEXANDER…CLEAN FINNISH!!!!! THE CRUCIFIX CUTTER CONNECTS BEAUTIFULLY!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(SKA stands up and gets his hand raised as “Pharmacie” hits,)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER….SSS….KKK…AAA!!!!!
Eve: Dominating performance tonight from SKA against two Showdown competitors. Can’t wait to see what he accomplishes on the red brand!
(The camera pans backstage to Ahren Fournier staring into a mirror shirtless, tweezing the stray hairs that make his beard seem unkempt. Ahren can’t have that so he has a magnifying glass in the mirror so he can really get close to the roots. Ahren takes a step back to admire his handiwork)
Ahren Fournier: When did the sex GOAT get here? Ha, I’m just kidding Jennipurr. I was always here. Naw mean?
(Jennipurr didn’t answer which was unusual, but Ahren Fournier had a routine to adhere to.)
Ahren Fournier: Gotta lather up.. gotta get my lotion, gotta get my hot oil, and gotta get all lubed up. Jacob Smith won’t know what’ll be hitting him. Oh, what’s that? Is that the sexiest greased up seal you’ve ever seen? NO! It’s the sexiest lathered up GOAT, you’ve ever seen. BIG difference! You know what I mean, Jennipurr?
(Again, Jennipurr didn’t answer.)
Ahren Fournier: A little quiet over there, Jennipurr. This doesn’t please me. But, I WON’T give you the satisfaction of turning around and looking you in the eye and giving you the attention that you want. I’m being cruel, I know, but the internet says that I have to give you stern love. Mmmk, Jenni? Sigh, this is so hard, Jennipurr. I don’t want to give you tough loving. I wanna give you the sweet love that you deserve. That’s just the kinda guy that I am. You’re my child Jennipurr, and you only deserve the best. That’s why I have the maids serve you caviar for every meal. Meal. MEAAALLLL, I hate that word, Jennipurr. Why did you make me say it?! UGH, MEAL.. MEEAAAALLL. You ever hear words that hit your little furry cat ears and you’re like, naw, I don’t like that shit, cut it out your vocabulary. Well, that’s MEAL, for me. It’s disgusting. You know what I mean? GOD, I LOOK SO GOOD WHEN I SHIMMER IN THE LIGHT!! THIS OIL REALLY MAKES MY GOAT PECS POP! OMG, look at my skin! I just wanna lick it all. Mmmm, Jennipurr, look how good I look!
(Ahren Fournier turns around to find no one there. His jaw drops to the floor.)
Ahren Fournier: WTF JENNIPURR!! JENNIPURR!! WHERE ART THOUST??? Oh… I see what’s going on. You being a playful leedle kitty. HIDE AND GO SEEK IS THE GAME, AND WE SHALL PLAY!!
(Ahren Fournier goes over and starts sneakily walking over to Jennipurr’s favorite cat toy a custom made Jamie O’Hara scratching pole. Ahren is certain that she’s hiding behind this 3 foot pole. He sneaks over, and jumps over it)
Ahren Fournier: HIYA!! GOT CHA!! Wut. thought you would be here for sure… Hmmm…
(Ahren Fournier then gets an idea, what more does Jennipurr love than cat dick? Food. Certainly, she’s in the fridge rummaging through the food. He gets in his sneak position, and starts walking over. He flings the door open, again certain to find her.)
Ahren Fournier: GOT CHA!! FUCK! Ok.. you’re quite good at this game, Jennipurr.. You’re not on your throne, you’re not behind your Jamie O’Hara scratching pole..and you’re not in the fridge… Hmmm…
(Suddenly Ahren Fournier sees it. A tail behind a curtain. The tail is swaying back and forth, and Ahren is certain again, – but for sure this time – that Jennipurr is behind this curtain. Ahren gets into sneak position and cautiously makes his way over to the curtain. He crutches down and mimes a countdown from 6 because why not. 6…5…4…3…2…1… And he flings open the curtain, and what does he find? Jennipurr’s latest one night stand hiding.)
Ahren Fournier: WHAT DA HELL! GET OUT OF HERE YOU SCOUNDREL!!
Ahren Fournier: I’LL CHOP THAT LEEDLE CAT DICK RIGHT OFF PAL!!
(Ahren Fournier goes for his handy dandy cat dick cutting scissors from his vanity and goes after the cat. But before he gets to the cat, he sneaks out the door.)
Ahren Fournier: Hmmm….? The door is open…. *GASP* A CATNAPPING!! AHREN FOURNIER, ACE DETECTIVE IS ON THE CASE… OMG, THIS IS THE PERFECT CHANCE TO WEAR MY HIGH FASHION SHERLOCK HOLMES OUTFIT!
(Ahren Fournier rips off his pants and runs to his wardrobe; he rummages through it all until he finds his detective outfit. He hurriedly puts it on and starts looking official as fuck. He pulls a pipe out of the pocket and starts smoking out of it.)
Ahren Fournier: Let’s go find a Jennipurr.
(Ahren Fournier flings his jacket coattails and walks by the camera and out the door. He stops for a second and makes a face)
Ahren Fournier: YOU!!
(The camera pans to Cameron Ella Ava and Jamie O’Hara. The crowd pops at the sight of the two fan favorite Elitists. Cameron and Jamie were just walking about strategy about their match later as they both look at Ahren with a confused look on their face. Ahren runs up to them. Jamie looks one-hundred and ten percent done with Ahren and he hasn’t even heard what Ahren has to say yet.)
Jamie O’Hara: Fucking hell. What now? I thought we were done with this fucking shit…
Ahren Fournier: Oh, I was just minding my own business in my own personal locker room. Do you? Do you have your own private locker room? The great Jamie O’Hara? Hmm? I have my own private locker room.. ANYWAY! I know you stole Jennipurr!
Cameron Ella Ava: Can you just… leave us alone? You got your victory at Reasonable Doubt. We’re trying to move forward with qualifying for the chamber match. Meanwhile, I don’t know what the hell you’re doing and dressed up in that outfit.
Ahren Fournier: Oh..you don’t like that outfit? It’s more expensive than anything you can have in your closet. But, you want me to leave you alone? NOT A CHANCE! THAT’S SOMETHING SOMEONE WHO’S GUILTY WOULD SAY!!
Cameron Ella Ava: Guilty of what exactly?
Ahren Fournier: Oh, you know full well what! Jennipurr is missing, and you two are prime suspects! Jamie, I know you were always jealous that she loved me more than you! I know, you’ve been lacking in being her uncle department. Cameron, I know you’re mad that I’m a better wrestler than you and proved it at Wicked Games —
Cameron and Jamie: Reasonable Doubt.
Ahren Fournier: I don’t know what the name of the event actually was, but I KNOW THE BOTH OF YOU DID THIS!
Jamie O’Hara: Sounds like you need to take better care of your cat.
(Ahren Fournier gets a fit of rage and takes a dainty white glove out of his back pocket and lightly backhand slaps Jamie in the face.)
Jamie O’Hara: Hey! The fuck was that for? Fucking cunt.
Ahren Fournier: No u! Do you see this pipe in my mouth? Do you see this magnifying glass? (looks through the magnifying glass towards Jamie) This is legit! This is legit stuff! I’m the GOAT detective, and I have pinpointed you two out! I HEARD YOU SAYING ” SOMETHING SOMETHING PUSSY SOMETHING” CAT I PRESUME. I mean, I didn’t hear any other part of the conversation, but pussy CAT is quite evident! WHERE IS THE QUEEN? HER THRONE IS GETTING COLD!
(Jamie O’Hara takes a quick look at Cameron Ella Ava, and back to Ahren Fournier. Jamie has a smirk comes across his face. )
Jamie O’Hara: Yeah, not that kind of pussy mate. But, um…if I were you, I wouldn’t venture into that closet over there. Made a bit of a mess. Oops. ?
Cameron Ella Ava: WE DID NOTHING THERE —
Ahren Fournier (cuts Cameron off): — Huh?… Oh… OOOHH EWWW EWWWW! That’s disgusting, you two are gross… THIS IS A PLACE OF BUSINESS. AND JENNIPURR IS MISSING AND ALL YOU CAN THINK OF IS YOUR GENITALIA! SELFISH…
(Ahren Fournier storms off.)
Cameron Ella Ava: The fuck did you say that?
Jamie O’Hara: Did you want him to leave or not?
Cameron Ella Ava: That man is insane. Oh, he’s coming back.
(Ahren Fournier storms back on camera.)
Ahren Fournier: SELFISH!!
Jamie O’Hara: Oh, by the way, I’d check your door before you go pointing fingers. It seems to be a note.
Ahren Fournier: Huh??
(Ahren Fournier looks over to his door and makes his way over forgetting the existence of Jamie O’Hara, and Cameron Ella Ava. He takes the note off the door.)
Ahren Fournier: If you want to see Jennipurr again, you will meet us in the ring tonight…? Hmm, how cliche… dumb wrestlers… I’M GONNA KILL WHOEVER HE, SHE OR THEY ARE!! CHRIS! GET MY GOING OUT COAT, WE’RE HEADING OUT!
(The scene goes back to ringside.)
(“My Way” by Limp Bizkit plays loudly over the PA system as Ryan Wilson steps through the curtain leading up to the stage right under the titantron carrying a hockey stick which rests on his right shoulder.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is a tag team match and it is scheduled for ONE FALL!
(The crowd roars… ONE FALL!)
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making his way down to ringside, Hailing from Montreal, Quebec! Weighing in a 212 lbs., accompanied to the ring by SYLVAIN PRIMEAU and BRUJAH ST-MICHEL, he is the “AGENT OF CHAOS” RYAN WILSON!!!
(He is followed by a stoic looking Sylvain Primeau and the towering Brujah St-Michel who cracks his knuckles with a bestial smirk on his face walking behind the Canadian Studmuffin. Wilson takes lead walking slowly towards the ring looking at the crowd frowning at some of them until he makes his way inside the ring and goes to one of the turnbuckles climbing with agility up top and raises his hockey stick high above his head and yells. Doing this on another turnbuckle he then tosses the stick to Sylvain and stands in the middle of the ring.)
Deadprez: Huge tag team match between four men who will compete for a spot in the King of Elite Tournament in a few weeks on Showdown and this is one of the statement matches.
Eve: We always speak about momentum and how important it is. We have here four rising stars in the EAW and Showdown brand who will are the future and have a HUGE opportunity in a few weeks, time to enter one of the most important tournaments in the EAW. Ryan Wilson is out here now, and he teams with Shaker Jones, not a team we would usually see.
Gavin Kirkland: Can they work together, THAT is the question here.
(“Love it Loud” by Kiss kicks off as the crowd cheers, the howling of a wolf sounds throughout the arena before Shaker Jones walks out, priming his mustache and beard. Focused on the ring, he makes his way, interacting with some fans never keeping his eyes off Gates and Wilson.)
Gina Romano: And his tag team partner, hailing from Inglis, Manitoba! Weighing in at 238 pounds! He is “THE CANADIAN WOLF” SHAKER JONES!
(The crowd cheers as Shaker gets to the ring, he rolls in and stand in the middle, looking over at his tag team partner, Wilson. He nods as the crowd roars.)
Eve: Gavin made a good point.
Gavin Kirkland: I did? I mean….yeah I did. Which one was that?
Eve: Can Shaker and Ryan get along? They are going up against a beast who single handedly in front of us dismantled the Unified Tag Team Champions in Heavenly Hell, and while he didn’t win the titles, what we have here is a monster that can any of these men stop?
Deadprez: Shaker came close, he is riding the momentum after beating Petey Asdee last week, at this point dawg, I don’t think Shaker cares who he is teaming with.
(The screen goes pitch black and a series of words are shown on the screen although all bloody. They say the words “PEOPLE=SHIT” As Shane gates theme “People=Shit” by Slipknot is blasted and fire is blasted out from the stage. Shane Gates comes out with his wife in tow. Shane wears his signature airplane jacket from his Japan days although all scratched and bloodied up. His wife in tow right behind him. Shane walks down the ramp and proceeds to spit in the face of the nearest fan for no reason as he laughs and continues to walk down the ramp.)
Gina Romano: And their opponents! First, accompanied to the ring by Angela Grant, from Huntington Beach, California, weighing in at 213 pounds…. “THE FN’ DYNASTY”…..SHANE GATES!!!
(Angela holds the ropes open for him as Shane Gates steps in, climbing the second rope, he raises his arms as the crowd boos him some more, Ryan Wilson and Shaker Jones stand their ground as Gates stares them down.)
Deadprez: Shane Gates and Ryan Wilson went through an announce table at Reasonable Doubt. Lance Blackfyre with Lucas Johnson failed to capture the Tag Team Titles, Shaker Jones tapped out to Harlow Reichert and we saw all four men trying to scuffle and get some sort of leverage here, this match could help two of them, playa.
Eve: That it could and watch out for Shane Gates, he is sneaky, a huge opportunist.
Gavin Kirkland: The smartest tactic going into this and of course having Angela in the corner.
(“Old Town Road” (Remix) by Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus plays. Lance Blackfyre steps out onto the stage, nodding his head and psyching himself up while most of the audience gives him heat. Some of the audience members appear to be utterly astonished by his size, gawking at Blackfyre and not knowing how to process his gargantuan physique as he approaches the ring. )
Gina Romano: And his partner! Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 365 pounds…. LANCE BLACKFYRE!!!!!
(He steps over the top rope and heads to the corner, keeping his eye on his partner, Shane Gates who backs up some and nods.)
Deadprez: This man is huge, he is big, he is dangerous, he is the difference maker.
Eve: Scary power and strength, we have seen it on display, tonight will be no different.
Gavin Kirkland: He’s a monster, alone he almost crushed two beautiful Goth Queens with his bare hands, luckily, he didn’t. I couldn’t live with myself without all that ass.
Gavin Kirkland: What? Stating a fact!
Eve: Shut up.
(The two teams talk to each other and figure out who is starting. It seems like Shane Gates slaps his manly chest while Shaker starts for their team much to the disgust of Ryan Wilson. Shane Gates pointing at Lance and winking, he then looks at Angela and blows a kiss, then points at Blackfyre and winks saying “I Got This”.)
Eve: Shane Gates telling his partner he has this, turning around RIGHT INTO A SHAKER MIST! THE GREEN MIST RIGHT IN THE FACE OF GATES! HE DROPS TO THE MAT! THE MATCH HASN’T STARTED YET! WAIT… SHAKER HIS KINDLY TELLING THE REFEREE TO RING THE BELL!
(The referee shrugs his shoulders and calls for the bell…)
(DING!!! DING!!! DING!!!)
Deadprez: SHAKER GOING FOR THE COVER!
Eve: WAIT WHAT!?
Gavin: WAS THAT THE FALL!?
Deadprez: NO! LANCE BLACKFYRE CAME IN JUST IN TIME TO BREAK THE COUNT! THE BIG MAN DRAGS GATES TO HIS CORNER AND TAGS HIM IN! Shaker better be careful, this monster is in and he locks up with Jones, throwing him into the corner and delivering lefts and rights, those meat hooks are pounding Shaker!
Eve: Here comes Wilson from behind! Oh, I think he made Lance angry! He turns around and Wilson quickly drops and rolls out of the ring! Blackfyre turns to Shaker but that distraction was enough! Shaker with repeated forearms to the chest, backing up the big man! He clotheslines Lance! Another clothesline and he has the big man stumbling! SHAKER WITH THE SUPA DUPA KICK! LANCE IS STILL ON HIS FEET WOBBLY!
Gavin Kirkland: AND ANGELA IS TRYING TO GUSH OUT SHANE’S EYES THAT POOR MAN! MAYBE I SHOULD HELP HER!
Deadprez: YOU STAY RIGHT HERE DAWG! SHAKER WITH A SECOND SUPA DUPA KICK! LANCE BLACKFYRE DROPS TO THE MATS!
(The Crowd Roars as Shaker quickly TAGS in Ryan Wilson)
Eve: Ryan Wilson in and he HITS A LIONSAULT! HE TRIES TO HOOK THE LEG FOR THE COVER BUT I DON’T THINK HE CAN PICK UP THAT HUGE HAM HOCK!
Deaprez: KICK OUT BY BLACKFYRE WITH AUTHORITY!
Gavin Kirkland: Look at Wilson’s face! Running against the ropes, he tries for a swinging neckbreaker just as Lance Blackfyre is getting to his feet but HE DOESN’T BUDGE! WILSON IS LOOKING ON STUNNED! DROPKICK BY WILSON AND ANOTHER! LANCE IS LIKE A HUGE REDWOOD! THEY CAN’T MOVE HIM! WAIT, CALF KICK BY WILSON! NOW HE IS CLIMBING THE TOP ROPE WHILE LANCE IS STUNNED!
Eve: WHAT DO THEY HAVE TO DO TO GET THIS MAN DOWN! Here comes Wilson off the top rope WITH A FLYING BODYPRESS! NO! LANCE BLACKFYRE CAUGHT HIM IN MID-AIR! POWERSLAM! HE HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE COVER!
Deadprez: WILSON IS ABLE TO GET THE SHOULDER UP! Shaker was just about to get in the ring and try to break the count but Wilson able to sneak out of the back door! Shane Gates is finally getting his eyes flushed, he is being helped right now and needs to get back in this match, I don’t know how much longer the onslaught can go on!
Eve: Lance Blackfyre is a towering man but against TWO great wrestlers is asking for too much! Lance picks up Wilson whipping him against the ropes and following with a thunderous clothesline! Wilson drops! Here comes Shaker and Lance scoops him up into a body slam!
Gavin Kirkland: LOOK AT SHANE GATES! HE HAS RECOVERED! IT’S A MIRACLE! HE WANTS A TAG! Lance tags him in and Shane goes right for Wilson, but Ryan rolls him up an inside Cradle!
Deadprez: GATES KICKS OUT! He tries to get up and Wilson is hitting him with rights and lefts, Shane is trying to stay on his feet, EYE POKE! Wilson can’t see, Gates hits a Dead Man! Sitdown Powerbomb!
Eve: KICKOUT BY WILSON ON THE LAST SECOND! Gates looks at the referee in shock, holding up three fingers and he waves it off with two! Gates is incensed! He grabs Wilson and sits him up for the Bullet2Head but Wilson ducks, Gates falls forward and TURNS RIGHT INTO THE SUPERMAN PUNCH! GATES QUICKLY ROLLS OUT AND TAGS BLACKFYRE! BLACKFYRE GETTING IN THE RING… SUPERMAN PUNCH ON HIM! THE BIG MAN FALLS TO THE ROPES, WILSON TAGS SHAKER, THEY BOTH GRAB BLACKFYRE AND DOUBLE SUPLEX!
(The crowd roars!)
Deadprez: THE BIG MAN IS DOWN! SHAKER JUMPS ON HIM FOR THE COVER!
Eve: BLACKFYRE KICKS OUT! Shaker looks shocked but he isn’t stopping, picking up Blackfyre by the beard, NO! LANCE GRABS HIM BY THE THROAT AND SLAMS SHAKER WITH A CHOKESLAM! HERE COMES WILSON BUT HE GRABS WILSON TOO! CHOKESLAM, NO! WILSON FLOATS OVER AS THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO GET HIM OUT!
Gavin Kirkland: PUNT KICK ON BLACKFYRE!
Eve: THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT!
Gavin Kirkland: BLACKFYRE JUST FELL TO HIS KNEES! CANADIAN CLOTHESLINE ON A SITTING BLACKFYRE! THIS ONE IS OVER!
Deadprez: LANCE BLACKFYRE KICKS OUT AGAIN! Shaker Jones is trying to figure out what to do with the big man. He waits, I think he is signaling for the Howling!
Eve: This could take the big man down!
Gavin Kirkland: LANCE BLACKFYRE BACK ON HIS FEET! SHAKER GOING FOR THE HOWLING! NO! LANCE LIFTS HIM UP AND OVER! HERE COMES WILSON BUT NO! SHATTERED JOY! WILSON FALLS T THE OUTSIDE AFTER THE BICYCLE KICK!
Eve: SHAKER FROM BEHIND! THE 87’! BLACKFYRE PUSHES OFF! A KICK TO SHAKER AND HE DELIVERS FEARS ORIGIN!
Deadprez: SIT DOWN POWERBOMB AND! WAIT! SHANE GATES JUST TAGGED HIMSELF IN! BLACKFYRE CAN’T BELIEVE IT AS HE JUMPS ON SHAKER FOR THE PINFALL!
(DING!!!! DING!!!!! DING!!!!!)
Gina Romano: The winners of the match…. The team of SHANE GATES AND LAAAANCCEEEE BBBLLLLACCKFFYYYYYRE!!!!!!
(“PEOPLE=SHIT” plays throughout the arena as the crowd boos. Shane Gates is celebrating while Blackfyre is standing behind him when he turns around and Blackfyre catches him by the throat!)
Eve: Shane Gates and Lance Blackfyre win but Lance is taking exceptions to what Shane did taking the pinfall and we are about to witness a murder! He has Gates by the throat Shane is doing everything to fight him!
Gavin Kirkland: Angela is on the apron! Get down! LANCE IS DISTRACTED! GATES WITH A SLAP TO HIS FACE! WHAT ARE YOU DOING SHANE!!??!
Deaprez: THAT GAVE SHANE TIME TO GET OUT AS ANGELA DROPS AND DRAGS HER MAN OUTTA THE RING! LOOK AT LANCE STARING AT THEM!
(Gates scurries up the ring with Angela, she holds up his arm high in the air as he smirks. Ryan Wilson is seated on the mats shaking his head, Shaker rolls to the corner and tries to help himself up while Blackfyre look right at Gates.)
Eve: These four men will be facing one another in a few weeks, what is that going to bring.
Gavin Kirkland: If looks could kill, Shane would be dead!
Deadprez: What a match, we will be right back!
(Shane and Angela continue walking to the back while Lance looks on, Wilson is helped up by his entourage as Shaker falls to the floor in disappointment.)
(The scene transitions to Jenny Punk backstage in her office. At the very first sight of her, the crowd cannot help, but give the General Manager a negative reception. Jenny is pacing back-and-forth while on the phone. It’s unclear what Jenny is talking about or who she is talking too, but it seems important. A moment later, her door is heard knocking. Jenny looks at the direction of the door.)
Jenny Punk (to her phone): Look, I’ll call you back later.
(Jenny Punk hangs up her phone.)
Jenny Punk (to the person knocking): Come in!
(A few seconds later, Dray Fontana enters the camera shot. The crowd gives the newcomer a mixed reaction. It’s still unclear where they crowd stands with Dray, but it seems the least of Dray’s worries. Jenny Punk was not expecting to see Dray on the other side of the door, but she seems to have a welcoming smile to her.)
Jenny Punk: Is there something that I can help you with? I was in a middle of an important phone call.
Dray Fontana: Jenny, just the woman that I wanted to see. Yes, there is something that you can help me with. For the first two weeks of my run on Showdown, I have been given the opportunity to showcase my talents in front of millions of people. For my first week, I took down Alexander Cage in stunning fashion and made an impression. Last week, Victor Jones managed to be another statistic in my undefeated record on Showdown. I’m thankful that you gave me an opportunity to showcase myself last week. You are someone that sees the potential in me. You see me as someone that’s more than talk in the ring. However, 2-0 and I want to prove myself more. I want to be able to prove that I am capable of standing in the ring against elite caliber talent. Although, I’m not going to make the mistake of going after the big sharks of this brand now. I want to work my way up the ranks, but I’m not sure if defeating me that are most likely not going to be here by the end of 2019 is going to be the way to do that. I’ve heard rumbles about the King of Elite qualifiers at the Showdown before Road to Redemption and I want in on it. You are going to want an Elitist who actually wins something from Showdown and I believe I have a shot at doing that.
Jenny Punk: The King of Elite Tournament will have some of the best Elitists on the brand. The five participants in the Extreme Elimination Chamber are automatically qualified for the King of Elite Tournament. The purpose of the qualifiers is to prove to people like you to earn your opportunity and prove that you’re capable of doing up against Elitists like them. If you believe that earning yourself a spot in the King of Elite Tournament is a wonderful way for you to climb up the ranks and step into the ring with some of the best on the brand, I’ll see what I can do. I’m planning for three qualifiers for the go-home show, but I’ll add your name to the list of candidates that I can put into these matches.
Dray Fontana: I’ll face anyone — Ryan Wilson, Shane Gates, Shaker Jones. I’ll face the behemoth Lance Blackfyre if I have too. I know, that I can step into the ring with either of these men and defeat them. The edge I have on them is that they don’t know much about me. From the past two matches I have, they haven’t seen much from me. From the first match, they saw total domination. The second match? They saw that I can put on a decent wrestling match. If I face any of these men, I’ll make sure to give them the wrestling match of their fucking lives. If anything, a lot of those men remind me of Victor Jones — men that don’t scream fascinating. Instead, they scream stupid. If anything, I would be doing any of these men a favor by bringing them back to reality and making them see that they’re nothing compared to me in the ring. It won’t be long until they face the wrath of the Prince.
Jenny Punk: Honestly, you shutting up any of those four would make Showdown a more tolerable show, but like I said — I’ll add your name to the list, but I’m hoping for a representative that’s not going to fall flat on their face. I don’t want for Showdown to face another failure this season. If that representative is you or not, I’m expecting perfection and I’m expecting the best. I would love to see if you have what it takes to qualify for this tournament. I’ll announce the matches next week for the go-home show. You’ll just have to wait and see if your name is there.
Dray Fontana: Will do. Thank you for listening, Jenny.
(Dray Fontana leaves the office as Jenny Punk is left by herself. The scene transitions elsewhere.)
(The camera cuts to Gina, who is ready to announce the participants for the next match.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(“Toxic Valentine” by All Time Low begins to play to a scattering of boos.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST! FROM VENICE, CALIFORNIA… WEIGHING IN AT 210 POUNDS… HE IS THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING PURE CHAMPION… JAKE SMITH!
(Jake begins to walk down the ramp, PURE Championship strapped around his waist and that trademark smirk on his face.)
Gavin Kirkland: :skip: Where the fuck is Sierra?!
Eve: Last week, Jake Smith made a declaration that he would be on the Road to Redemption card no matter what. He wants to be a fighting PURE Champion and he’s waiting for someone to step up to the plate.
Deadprez: Thus far, Jenny Punk has yet to name a contender for the PURE Championship, but with Road to Redemption three weeks away, I’m sure an announcement will be made soon. But right now, Jake seems focused on taking down the former EAW World Champion, Ahren Fournier.
(Jake rolls into the ring and poses with the PURE belt as his music fades. It’s quickly replaced by “Starboy” by the Weeknd.)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT… FROM PAWTUCKET, RHODE ISLAND… WEIGHING IN AT 210 POUNDS… HE IS THE STARBOI HIMSELF… AHREN FOURNIER!
(The crowd also greets Ahren with a scattering of boos, and the look on Ahren’s face tells us all that he doesn’t care.)
Eve: Needless to say, Ahren Fournier has been in a foul mood thanks to Jennipurr’s disappearance. I’m told that Ahren even called the producers of ‘Dateline’ and tried to get them to come out and conduct an investigation.
Gavin Kirkland: I’d be pretty salty if my pussy went missing too. :mjgrin:
Deadprez: The match between The ILLIONAIRES and Heavenly Hell has been booked for Road to Redemption. The champions will have their toughest defense to date and if Jennipurr hasn’t been found by then, Ahren’s liable to snap. That cat is his life, and something tells me that Ahren is about to try and take all his emotions out on the PURE Champion.
(Ahren gets into the ring and tosses his fur coat to the side. The referee checks with both men and then calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: Jake and Ahren start circling one another, and it’s Jake who attempts to initiate a collar and elbow tie-up! Ahren slaps his hands away, Jake tries to grab Ahren’s wrist! The former EAW World Champion snatches Jake’s arm, looks for a wristlock, but Jake grabs onto Ahren’s shoulders and both men are trying to gain control in the opening seconds of the match. It’s Jake who manages to drive a knee into Ahren’s gut, and get behind him, but Ahren is quick to block the takedown. He grabs onto Jake’s hands, but is unable to pry his fingers apart, and Jake pushes Ahren towards the ropes! Jake uses the momentum to flip Ahren over and go for a quick roll-up, but Ahren rolls through and gets right back to his feet!
Deadprez: He takes Jake down by the waist now, but Jake drops down into a sitting position which forces Ahren down to his stomach. Jake bridges up with his legs and kicks them back, flipping over Ahren and getting himself out of the waistlock! Ahren is quick to grab the ankle and bring Jake back down to the mat, and both men are exchanging various mat holds. Jake works himself up to his knees and pulls Ahren up onto all fours, and he immediately goes for a side headlock. Jake flips Ahren around and goes for the arm, but Ahren counters with a wristlock! Both men work their way up to their feet, but it’s Ahren who’s got control and brings Jake down with an armdrag! He maintains the hold and bends Jake’s arm behind his back, and the PURE Champion fires off several elbows that connect with Ahren’s jaw!
Gavin Kirkland: Yawn. PURE wrestling. Nevertheless, I guess I’ll call the match and be professional about it even though I really wish Sierra Bradford or Assidy were down here to keep me entertained. Ahren is forced to let go of Jake, and Jake immediately snatches Ahren up by his tiny man bun, but Ahren is able to push him up and unload a chop to the chest of the PURE Champ! Jake fires back with a chop of his own, and Ahren hauls off, and slaps Jake across the face! Jake lunges at Ahren with a clothesline, but the GOAT ducks and whirls around, connecting with a nice spinning heel kick! Ahren quickly goes for the cover, but Jake powers out before the referee can even get down to make the count!
Deadprez: Ahren immediately locks Jake in a sleeper, but Jake is able to power up to his feet and elbow his way out of it! He tries to send Ahren into the ropes, but Ahren reverses and whips Jake across the ring! Jake locks his arms around the ropes and Ahren flies forward, but Jake gets his feet up and connects with Ahren’s face! Ahren stumbles back and Jake turns around, springs on the ropes, and brings Ahren down with a springboard back elbow! Jake goes for a cover, but Ahren kicks out, and Jake snatches Ahren up by the hair! He grabs Ahren’s arm and twists the wrist, but Ahren drops down, wraps his arm around Jake’s leg and brings him down to the mat! Ahren grabs the ankle and scrambles up, but Jake lands a kick with his free leg to Ahren’s knee, forcing him to let go! Jake kicks at Ahren’s knee again, which causes it to buckle, and Jake springs up, grabs Ahren around the neck, and plants him with a DDT!
Gavin Kirkland: Jake quickly grabs Ahren and throws him into the corner! He runs for Ahren, looking for a running forearm, but Ahren moves out of the way and Jake is unable to stop! He crashes into the turnbuckles and Ahren hits him in the back of the neck with a huge clothesline! Jake falls back, Ahren catches him around the neck, and slams his fist down into Jake’s chest! He hits him a few more times before dropping him with a neckbreaker! Ahren begins to throwing rights and lefts to Jake’s face and head, before grabbing him up and hitting him with a huge uppercut! Ahren forces Jake right back into that corner and begins kicking the hell out of Jake! Ahren is trained in MMA, and thanks to his brash personality his technical skills sometimes get overlooked. But those kicks are hitting their mark and Jake’s chest has turned bright red. Ahren brings Jake out of the corner, and drops him into a sitting position with a snapmare. He runs the ropes and comes back… dropkick to the back of Jake’s head! Ahren with a cover!
Deadprez: The PURE champ kicks out!
Eve: Ahren pulls Jake up, but Jake fires back by raking Ahren across the face! He follows it up with a Russian leg sweep, and he falls back to the mat! Ahren is down, and Jake is trying to shake off the onslaught of offense he was just dealt! Jake finally crawls over to Ahren and begins punching him in the head. Jake is using closed fists, something you can’t really do when a match is contested under PURE rules. Jake is definitely a great brawler, and despite the fact this is a standard singles match, the rules are a little more lax than they are when the PURE Championship is on the line. Jake gets Ahren up and grips him around the neck, driving his knee into Ahren’s gut. Jake fires off more knee strikes and forces Ahren to kneel and he runs to the opposite corner! ‘SO LONG AND GOODNIGHT’!!! Bomaye knee connects to the head of Ahren Fournier and Jake goes for a cover!
Gavin Kirkland: NOPE! THE BAH BAH BAAAAAAAAAHDDEST GOAT ON THE PLANET KICKS OUT!
Deadprez: Jake is back up and stomps on Ahren’s neck and face a few times before going over to the ropes! Jake’s about to take a risk and it might be too early in this match to try something like this. However, the PURE champ gets himself set and he flies off the top! ‘BLUE VENGEANCE!’
Eve: BUT AHREN GETS HIS KNEES UP! Jake’s risky moonsault this early in the match doesn’t pay off as Ahren wisely gets his knees up! Jake is holding his stomach and he rolls right to the outside of the ring. Jake is trying to recuperate away from the ring, but Ahren is back up now and he’s going right after him! Ahren grabs Jake up by the hair and drives him back first into the ring apron! Ahren uncorks a stiff kick that connects with the side of Jake’s head, follows it up with a straight right hand to the jaw, and now a knee strike that hits the same spot the punch did! Ahren grabs Jake’s head and slams the champ’s face into his knee, and he rolls him back into the ring. Ahren gets back into the ring, stands over Jake, and jumps to the second rope! His feet connect with Jake’s sternum and he immediately hooks the legs for a cover!
Gavin Kirkland: Jake gets his shoulder up!
Deadprez: Ahren grabs Jake’s arm and rolls over into an armbar! Jake immediately begins kicking and thrashing, and he reaches his free hand for the ropes! His fingertips latch on to the bottom rope and referee is ordering Ahren to break the hold! Ahren is refusing so the referee has no choice but to start counting!
ONE… TWO… THREE… FOUR… F-
Gavin Kirkland: The GOAT lets go at the last possible nanosecond, and Jake quickly grips the ropes and pulls himself away from Ahren. Ahren grabs him by the feet and jerks him off the ropes, and he stomps Jake’s face right into the mat! Ahren is down and he grabs Jake by the hair, pulling his head back, and wrapping him up in a camel clutch! Jake starts reaching for the ropes again, but Ahren lets go and pulls him back to the center of the ring. Ahren goes for the camel clutch once again, but Jake quickly rolls over onto his back and kicks at Ahren’s knee once again! Ahren drops down on that limb, and Jake sits up, cracking Ahren across the jaw with an open-handed palm strike! Ahren is rocked, and Jake fires off several more strikes! Ahren falls back and that allows Jake to scramble to his knees and begin unloading palm strikes all over Ahren’s face and head! Ahren covers up to defend himself, but Jake pulls him up and boxes him in the ears! Ahren immediately covers his ears and that allows Jake to hit a superkick to the jaw! He grabs Ahren before he can fall and plants him with a ‘Paralyzer!’ The spinebuster neutralizes Ahren and Jake goes for the cover!
Eve: AHREN IS ABLE TO KICK OUT!
Deadprez: Jake takes a deep breath and finally gets to his feet. He pulls Ahren up and attempts to get him in position for a Tiger Driver, but Ahren is able to block! He grabs Jake around the waist and he hoists him up! Ahren tries to get Jake across his shoulders, but Jake fights his way back to his feet! He lands behind Ahren and shoves him forward, and Ahren’s chest collides with the ropes! Jake brings him down into a pinning position!
Gavin Kirkland: Ahren kicks out again!
Deadprez: Both men return to their feet and they lock up with one another! Ahren is able to muscle Jake back against the ropes, and he immediately goes for a choke! Jake blasts him in the side of the head with a forearm, and kicks Ahren in the face! Jake uses the ropes to push himself forward and takes Ahren down with a clothesline! He goes to drop a knee down across Ahren’s face, but Ahren rolls out of the way! Jake grabs for his knee! Ahren crawls to the ropes and uses them to pull himself up and he staggers over to Jake. He pulls Jake up, but Jake manages to shove him back. Ahren fires off a right, which Jake blocks! Jake goes for a right hand of his own, but Ahren kicks him in the thigh and follows it up with an uppercut! Jake staggers back and Ahren forces him to the ropes! He whips Jake across the ring and runs towards him! Ahren connects with a running knee and that drops Jake! The PURE Champ is quick to get back to his feet and Ahren fakes a superkick! Jake drops to his knees which allows Ahren to follow it up with a real superkick that connects with Jake’s jaw! Ahren calls that combination ‘Star Struck’ and he goes for the cover!
Eve: The PURE champ refuses to lose!
Gavin Kirkland: I think Ahren’s had just about enough of this match and he’s pulling Jake up by the hair. He sends him into the ropes and catches Jake on the rebound with another running knee! He hooks his arms around Jake’s neck and plants him with a neckbreaker! Ahren takes a step back and crouches down and he is urging Jake to get up! Jake finally works his way up and here comes Ahren! PROTECT YA NECK! THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL TURNS JAKE INSIDE OUT AND AHREN GOES FO-
??? (O.S.): MMMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWW!
Deadprez: The fuck?!
Eve: Was that a kitty?!
Gavin Kirkland: Ahren needs to go for the cover but look! The tron just came on.
(The video tron has indeed cut on and both members of Heavenly Hell appear. Minerva is cradling Ahren’s beloved cat, Jennipurr, in her arms and Constance Blevins has both Unified Tag Team Championships across her shoulders.)
Ahren Fournier (Off Mic): JENNIPURR!
Eve: :lupe: Oh my gawd.
Jennipurr: Meow! Meow! Meow!
(The cat is dressed in a tiny little ‘Heavenly Hell’ onesie and wears a little hat like Minerva does with her ring gear.)
Constance Blevins: Hi Ahren!
(Minerva strokes Jennipurr and takes her little paw, waving it towards the camera.)
Minerva: Say hi to daddy, Jennipurr!!
(Ahren is absolutely infuriated right now. He is pacing the ring and unleashing a string of swear words. He finally stops pacing as Heavenly Hell giggle at his obvious anger and he points a shaking finger at the tron.)
Ahren Fournier (Off Mic): YOU FUCKING CUNTS! I SWEAR TO GAWD IF YOU HURT ONE STRAND OF FUR ON MY PRECIOUS JENNIPURR I WILL KILL YOU BOTH!!!
(Minerva and Constance look at one another and roll their eyes.)
Constance Blevins: Does Jennipurr look hurt? In fact, she’s spent the night living in luxury, enjoying the good life.
Minerva: Don’t believe us? Take a look.
(A series of pictures flash across the screen. They show Jennipurr hanging out with Heavenly Hell, wearing various Heavenly Hell onesies and merchandise, napping next to the Unified Tag Team Championships and most importantly, using a litter box that has a picture of Chris Elite and Ahren inside.)
(The picture collage ends and the screen cuts back to a live shot of Heavenly Hell and Jennipurr. Minerva is nuzzling her cheek against Jennipurr and the cat is heard purring, obviously soaking up the attention. Ahren is absolutely seething inside the ring and his knuckles have turned white because he is forcibly gripping the top rope.)
Minerva: Seriously, this cat is so adorable. We even got Jennipurr her very own gypsy chain!
(Minerva holds up the cutest, tiniest gypsy chain and she places it around Jennipurr’s neck.)
Minerva: Purrfect. Get it?
(Constance playfully rolls her eyes.)
Constance Blevins: Minnie, you’re better than that joke.
Minerva: Alright, fair enough, but you have to admit it was kind of punny.
Constance Blevins: …..
(Constance and Minerva turn their attention back to Ahren and it’s Constance who covers her mouth. Minerva dramatically gasps.)
Deadprez: JAKE SMITH HAS RECOVERED AND PULLS AHREN DOWN! JAKE WITH A ROLL UP!!! JAKE WITH A ROLL UP!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: DID HE HAVE THE TIGHTS?!?!?!?!
(Heavenly Hell’s laughter fill the arena before the tron clicks off. “Toxic Valentine” by All Time Low begins to play. Jake quickly gets up and Ahren rolls right out of the ring.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS YOUR WINNER… THE PURE CHAMPION, JAKE SMITH!
Deadprez: Ahren Fournier doesn’t give one fuck about this loss. He’s storming up the ramp right now, screaming Jennipurr’s name! The GOAT disappears to the back and Jake Smith has probably just gotten the biggest win of his career.
Eve: Well, he had a lot of help with that because Jake was out. Ahren connected with ‘Protect Ya Neck’ and was about to make the cover. Heavenly Hell have possession of Jennipurr and who fucking knows what’s going to happen next?
(For Jake, what happens next doesn’t really matter. He’s been given his championship and he’s got an arrogant smile on his face. He holds the title as the crowd gives him a mixed reaction this time. The camera takes a final shot of Jake celebrating his stolen win and cuts to commercial break.)
(Showdown returns from commercial break with Ahren Fournier pissed off. He had found out that Heavenly Hell were the ones responsible for Jennipurr’s catnapping and he is doing everything in his power to get his cat back.)
Ahren Fournier: You Heavenly Hoes thought that this was funny! Those two vampires failed to realize that Jennipurr was scared to death. She could have PTSD and it would be thanks to those two! I should call the police on them! I just want my Jennipurr back. ?
(Ahren Fournier begins to sob.)
???: If you cry like a bitch right now, I will not hesitate and slap the shit outta you.
(Chris Elite’s voices appears as Ahren Fournier stops the process of crying. Ahren’s jaw drops in relief as he notices that Chris has position of Jennipurr. Ahren doesn’t say much, but immediately retrieves Jennipurr from his team mate.)
Chris Elite: I recognized the background of where those two goth bitches had Jennipurr. I tried to catch up to them, but only Jennipurr was there when I went there. But, she seems unharmed.
Ahren Fournier: Oh, my god! What would I do without you?
(Ahren Fournier and Jennipurr go to hug Chris Elite, who feels uncomfortable as hell.)
Chris Elite: I don’t do this hugging shit at all. But, we’ll find a way to get back at them. I think I may have an idea. For now, I got a match to win. You and Jennipurr just catch up.
(Chris Elite leaves the scene, leaving Ahren Fournier and Jennipurr to be reunited.)
Ahren Fournier: Don’t worry, Jennipurr. Uncle Chris and I will get revenge for what those two vampires did to you.
(Ahren Fournier coos and cuddles with Jennipurr before the camera fades elsewhere.)
(The scene fades into a dark room with a wrestling ring. In the middle of the ring, there’s a steel chair with The Saint of Death Santo Muerte sitting on it. He has a serious and intimidating look on his face, but he is looking straight ahead, almost like he’s pondering and reflecting on something. A spotlight shines on top of him and that seems to be the only source of light in this scene.)
Santo Muerte: I am nothing, but a mortal man. I am someone who has a respect for death. I’m not like every man or woman who mocks the concept of death. I find death as an inevitable force that we all face at the end of the day. I’m aware that my time will come and I will be faced with death, but for now, all I can do is carry on his message to the best of my abilities. I get ridiculed, mocked and belittled by men and women who believe they are above death. I’ve said it before — it doesn’t matter if you’re a Gawd, Ace, mightiest one or a simpleton, no one escapes death. Death doesn’t care about where you are in life. It doesn’t care about your family, friends or those that care about you. It will strike it’s vengeance whenever it please and will make the most out of the opportunity. People need to grasp onto the thought, but sadly, they will continue not to understand the unknown. For me, I never saw myself in this position. Road to Redemption is in a few weeks and it’s unknown that I will make my presence there. It’s unclear what my direction is headed at the moment. At Reasonable Doubt, I wanted to be the man that capture the PURE Championship. I wanted nothing more than to bring the victory to El Rey desired from me. I HAD the PURE Championship in my grasps. I was THIS close to breaking up the pin and…it was too late. Every hope I had in this match was taken away from me — the hope to prove my worth in the eyes of El Rey. The hope to prove to people that I was ready for anything that Jake Smith and Mark Michaels threw at my direction. In a matter of seconds, it was all taken away from me.
(Santo Muerte dumps his head down into his lap, almost like he is disappointed about how his match at Reasonable Doubt turned out. Santo had the goal of bringing something to El Rey and he failed to live up to the promise. He pops his head back and continues to look straight before continuing.)
Santo Muerte: I’m a believer that when another path closes, another path opens. When the path to become PURE Championship ended, I looked at the path of becoming Answers World Champion to be wide open. The opportunity to be placed inside a devious structure as the Extreme Elimination Chamber Match would have felt like a second home to me. A place in which I could have carried on my mission and inflict as much pain as possible to any man that stands in front of me. Alas, Mark Michaels took the easiest way out possible. He can relish in his tainted victory all he wants, but he’s nothing more than every Elitists in this company — he is never afraid to display his pride in front of everyone. He escaped death, but he won’t be lucky the next time he enters the ring against me. He will continue his path to Road to Redemption and believe that nothing will ever happen to him, but his time will come like everyone else’s time will come. Road to Redemption would have been a perfect setting for me to carry on El Rey’s teachings. It would have been a glorious environment to explain to the world why I was chosen by El Rey to partake in his message about death and destruction. On the other hand, I consider not winning the match as a blessing in disguise. I was never fond of matches with multiple people partaking in it. It always leads to someone getting in my way and capitalizing on my efforts. Reasonable Doubt was an example of a match like that and Road to Redemption would have been another example. However, when alone, I feel like I can conquer any man or woman that is placed in front of me.
Santo Muerte: With two significant failures within the past two weeks, it makes me wonder when another path will open? Does my path to getting to Road to Redemption get smaller or will I have to settle for getting on the go-home show? I look for any opportunity to bring a trophy to El Rey. I look for any chance to get his message to anyone I stand in the ring with. I want nothing more than bring success and glory to El Rey. I have not done that at all and that needs to change. I need to be more aggressive and ruthless than before. Everyone thought that they were ready for me? They won’t be the next time I step into a wrestling ring. The next time I step inside the ring, I will make a lasting memory that will be embedded into everyone’s minds. I will be the force that brings this entire brand to their knees and let it be known that no one can escape death.
(Santo Muerte stops speaking before looking directly to the camera.)
Santo Muerte: Miedo Muerte!
(The last shot is of Santo Muerte looking intently to the camera before panning back to black..)
(Commercial break promoting the Extreme Elimination Chamber Match for the Answers World Championship at Road to Redemption.)
(Camera returns from commercial break to find Gina Romano inside the ring.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is a triple threat match scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Gina Romano: And it is an Extreme Elimination Chamber preocupes match!
(“It Follows” by Cane Hill hits as Xander Payne walks out to a chorus of boos. He snarls at the fans before making his way to the ring.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making his way to the ring from Brampton, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 255 pounds… XANDER PAYNE!
(Xander climbs up and through the ropes, shaking himself loose as his music fades. “Just Cos You Got The Power” by Motörhead then hits as Mark Michaels makes his entrance to even more boos. He smirks into a camera before walking down the ramp.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent, making his way to the ring from Minneapolis, Minnesota, weighing in at 240 pounds… MARK MICHAELS!
(Mark slides into the ring and tells Xander to stay back before posing in the corner to more boos as his music cuts. “Odee” by A Boogie then hits as Chris Elite walks out to more boos, accompanied by the BVU. On the stage, Chris turns to the BVU, motioning for them to go backstage because he can handle this one himself.)
Gina Romano: And their opponent, making his way to the ring from Brooklyn, New York, weighing in at 210 pounds… CHRIS ELITE!
(Chris slides into the ring and climbs up into the corner to pose.)
Deadprez: Always good to see Big Bhris as— XANDER JUST GRABBED CHRIS FROM BEHIND AND SLAMMED HIM DOWN TO THE MAT! THE REFEREE CALLING FOR THIS MATCH TO START!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: XANDER GOING FOR A QUICK PINFALL! GONNA STEAL THE SHOCK WIN!
Gavin Kirkland: But Mark Michaels breaks it up! These three men all looking to gain some momentum heading into the Violent Progressive Deduction Construction at Pavement to Restitution!
Deadprez: It’s the Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road to Redemption.
Gavin Kirkland: Not to the TheSaurusly cultured!
Eve: Mark now stomping into the back of Xander, a man who has been the cause of several recent departures from Showdown! Payne has caused massive injuries and ended careers lately on this recent rampage so it might be wise to wear him down early, but don’t ignore Elite either! Mark stomping away at Payne and now shoving him with his boot! OH! A massive kick to the skull and Xander is being rolled out of the ring by Michaels! Mark now turning around and placing his attention on Elite! Mark grabbing Chris by the head and pulling him up! Looking to connect with a DDT—

Firing away with chops to the chest of the former PURE Champion! Elite lighting him up and now pulling Mark out of the corner! Running bulldog plants Michaels into the mat! Elite goes for a corner but Mark kicks out before the count starts! Elite looking to turn up the heat as he drops down and applies a rear choke to Mark Michaels! Elite looking to force Michaels to submit or pass out but he’s gotta sink it in a little deeper before—
Gavin Kirkland: XANDER PAYNE FROM BEHIND WITH A STEEL CHAIR! NO DQ IN MULTIMAN MATCHES! XANDER HIT ELITE IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD! NOW TURNING HIS ATTENTION TO MICHAELS! PAYNE DRIVING THAT CHAIR DOWN INTO THE GUT OF MARK MICHAELS! AGAIN AND AGAIN TO TRY AND TEAR HIM APART!
Eve: BUT WAIT! MARK CAUGHT THE CHAIR THAT TIME! HE YANKS IT OUT OF PAYNE’S HANDS AND ROLLS BACK TO HIS FEET! MARK CHARGING XANDER WITH THAT CHAIR!
Deadprez: BOX OFFICE SMASH! CHRIS ELITE JUST KICKED THAT CHAIR RIGHT INTO MARK’S FACE! MARK MICHAELS GOES DOWN! ELITE TRIES TO MAKE A COVER BUT MICHAELS ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! Elite had an opening there and missed it— BUT XANDER WITH A ROLLUP FROM BEHIND!
Eve: But Elite kicks out and rolls back through! Xander still seated and— ELITE WITH A ROUNDHOUSE TO THE FACE OF PAYNE! Xander drops back from the connection! Elite now stomping into Xander’s stomach!
Gavin Kirkland: NOT HIS STOMACH! THERE’S TOO MUCH PADDING! IT WON’T HURT!
Eve: And now Elite hitting the ropes! NO! HE LEAPS INTO THE ROPES FOR A SPRINGBOARD! BIONIC STOMP! RIGHT INTO XANDER’S CHEST! PAYNE IS HURTING! AND ELITE LOOKING TO FINISH THE JOB! ELITE LEAPING UP TO THE TOP ROPE AGAIN! HE HAS A CLEAR SHOT! YOU GOTTA LOVE IT!
Deadprez: BUT PAYNE GOT THE KNEES UP! ELITE CRASHED INTO XANDER’S KNEES WITH THE 630 SENTON AND HE’S WRITHING IN PAIN! Xander rolling over and pressing quickly to his feet! Trying to take advantage of this opportunity! He grabs Elite by the head and pulls him up! Xander scooping Chris up! SMALL PACKAGE POSITION AND HE LIFTS! LOOKING FOR THE PAYNEKILLER!
Gavin Kirkland: But Elite pops his legs out of the small package! He gets the head scissors and counters with a hurricanrana!

Elite rushes in looking for a clothesline— BUT PAYNE GRABS HIM AND HOIST HIM UP! PAYNE THROWS ELITE BACK AND SENDS HIM FLYING! WHAT POWER!!
Eve: Elite crashes back to the mat and rolls quickly to his feet! He moves in again— GOES FOR THE BOX OFFICE SMASH!
Deadprez: BUT PAYNE CATCHES IT! Payne catches Elite’s boot and shoves it aside! Elite is off balance— AND PAYNE LIFTS HIM UP! LAST SEDATION! THE POP UP POWERBOMB CONNECTS! ELITE IS SPLATTERED ONTO THE CANVAS AS PAYNE MAKES THE LATERAL PRESS!
Eve: DOWNFALL! MARK MICHAELS SNEAKS IN WITH THE CURB STOMP ON XANDER PAYNE! MARK IS GONNA STEAL THE WIN! HE MAKES THE COVER ON PAYNE!
Deadprez: BUT PAYNE GETS HIS SHOULDER UP AT THE VERY LAST INSTANT! Mark Michaels had waited for the exact right opportunity to get back into this match but he couldn’t put Xander away! Mark better get back on the offensive if he wants to have any chance of taking this win and the momentum before the chamber! Mark now looking to grab ahold of Xander to try and apply the Liberation has begun! The Lebell Lock could finish this off!! But Xander trying to keep some distance! Moving away!

Eve: Look! Chris Elite is up now too! He comes in and clubs at the back of Mark Michaels! Now grabbing ahold of him and getting the rear waist lock!

Gavin Kirkland: No one wants to see Mark Michaels lifting a skirt.

(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… CHRIS ELITE!
(Elite has his hand raised as “Odee ” hits again. Mark is out on the mat and Xander is just waking up on the outside.)
Deadprez: What a win for Chris Elite before heading into Road to Redemption! What’d you guys think?
Gavin Kirkland: Not enough tits. Xander doesn’t count. Barely.
Eve: Sigh. Fuck you, Gavin. But yes. That was a major win with significant implications as we move towards Road to Redemption! Chris Elite gains major momentum! This is shaping out as a fascinating night here on Showdown!
(Final shot shows Elite rolling out of the ring and walking backwards up the ramp with a grin on his face.)
(Commercial recapping Friday Night Dynasty.)
(Showdown returns from commercial break as “Hell on Heels” by The Pistol Annies begins to play from the speakers. The crowd is surprised to hear Kensingten Calhoun-Astor’s music at this point of the show, but are prepared to boo the blonde. A few seconds pass before Kensingten makes her presence known as she stands on top of the crowd. She seems quite disgusted over the fans reception of her before shaking her head and making her way down the ramp and into the ring.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME…KEEEENNNNNSSSSIIIINNNNNGGGGGGGTTTTEEEEEENNNNNNN CAAAALLLLLLHHHHHHOOOOOUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNN-ASSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I’m always happen to have the beautiful and blonde Kensingten Calhoun-Astor in our graces! She has been something that we’ve been missing on Showdown these past few weeks! I mean, we’ve been getting more of Xander Payne and we don’t need that at all. We need more Kensingten!
Eve: Apparently, Kensingten requested to come out tonight. She claimed that she had something that she wanted to announced to the EAW Universe, so I’m wondering what it’s going to be about? Any ideas?
Deadprez: Honestly, I have a couple of ideas on what it could be, but I’m going to wait and see if my confirmations are right.
(By the time Deadprez has finished talking, Kensingten Calhoun-Astor is already inside the squared circle. She puts on one of her gloves before getting a good hold of the microphone from the ring announcer, which she swipes away from Gina Romano and shoos her out of the ring. Gina doesn’t put much of a fight and exits the ring. “Hell on Heels” dies down; however, the crowd booing at Kensingten hasn’t.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Oh gosh, is this the reception that I get from all of you nasties? That’s such a shame because what else do I expect from disgusting, rat-infested place like Seattle, Washington?
(At the mention of their city and state being slandered, the crowds’ booing intensifies as Kensingten Calhoun-Astor rolls her eyes, not amused by the situation at all.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: I find it insulting that I needed to sit on my hands in the back as I watch this show go down the drain. I mean, have you seen what travesty that they’ve been putting on the camera? Firstly, we see that fat slob Xander Payne and Darkane in a death match. What was up with that? Did Showdown die and call itself Voltage? Secondly, you have those ungrateful goth twins, whining and complaining like always about not being given the competition that they deserve and when they do, THEY STILL COMPLAIN. Thirdly, you have the never ending story whether Lucas Johnson was going to quit or not, but it seems like Xander did everyone a favor and murdered the poor guy. Such a shame! EAW Universe, I am so sorry that this is what this brand has turned too. I’m sorry that the Showdown brand robbed you of a lady like myself. People thought after my issues with that little taquito Jenny Cien, I was done, but honey, my work has just begun. I’ve sat on the back and I waited for my opportunity to strike. Whenever booked, I made the most out of my opportunities and I proved to be a good soldier, but I refuse to miss another free-per-view. If you think that The Steel Magnolia of Elite Answers Wrestling is going to miss out on Road to Redemption, then you’re mistaken. I’m not going to miss out on an opportunity to work towards my goals and prove that Kensingten Calhoun-Astor is one of the hottest rising talents in this company. So earlier tonight, I went to Jenny Punk about getting a match at Road to Redemption and guess what? She said yes. At Road to Redemption, I will be entering the Extreme Elimination Chamber for the Specialists Championship.
(Kensingten Calhoun-Astor makes the announcement with pride in her voice. Kensingten stands in the ring with her head held high as the crowd boos at the announcement.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Sure, I got into the match by default, but Showdown’s representative in the Specialists Chamber Match needs a woman like me. Road to Redemption, in general, needs me. I mean, there’s no other woman that’s going to step up to the plate and be the woman that takes the Specialists Championship to Showdown. The goth twins have their own titles to defend; precious little Harlot is just trying to get her Answers World Championship Match. There is no other woman on this brand that I see as competition. There is no woman in the back that can do what I do in the ring. Let’s just establish something, ladies and gentlemen, my talents have been wasted since I entered this nasty little brand. I am the most underutilized talent and it’s such a shame that I’m given a match here and there. I’m being placed in matches to be a sacrificial lamb and that’s not alright with me at all. I was the most impressive recruit in the EAW Performance Center and yet, I’m stepping into the ring with losers like Shaker Jones. I need to settle for matches on Fight Grid and defeat men to prove my self worth on this brand. I am not going to stand for it. There’s no way I am going to find myself in the lower card of this brand. Winning the Specialists Championship from Darcy May Morgan and making her nothing more than a transitional champion in my world is the plan going into Road to Redemption and I’ll be damned if someone plans to be a hurdle in my goals to make a name for myself on this brand. I am going to Road to Redemption and —
(“Diva” by Beyoncé begins to play through the speakers. The crowd has a mixed emotions are they are unfamiliar with this entrance music. Kensingten Calhoun-Astor stops talking as she looks at the ramp, unsure with what’s going on at the moment. This person’s entrance music continues to play.)
Eve: What in the world? What’s all this about?
Deadprez: Wait, is that who I think it is?
(The crowd becomes anxious as a woman with red hair walks out from the back. Kensingten Calhoun-Astor looks at the woman confused. It’s clear that she has no clue who this woman was, but Kensingten looks a little pissed due to this woman interrupting her and her camera time. The crowd gives a bit of a positive reaction due to them being a bit familiar with this woman.)
Gavin Kirkland: OH MY GOD!!!! I KNOW WHO SHE IS!!!! THAT’S CANDICE BLAIR AVA!!! THE YOUNGEST OF THE AVA CLAN!!!
Eve: What in the world is she doing out here? She’s not contracted by EAW.
(Candice Blair stands on top of the ramp as she takes in the ovation that she was surprised to get. Sure, it wasn’t an electric ovation, but there were a few fans that were familiar with her. Whether it’s by her appearance on True Avas or work in the independent wrestling scene, but there’s a good chunk of fans, who are familiar with her.)
Deadprez: I am surprised to see Candice her. Sure, she’s made an appearance here and there in EAW, but like you said, Eve; she’s not contracted in EAW at all. But, it seems odd that she would choose now to come out?
(By the time Deadprez was finished talking, Candice Blair has entered the ring, where she got her own microphone from a timekeeper. She stands across from Kensingten Calhoun-Astor in the ring. “Diva” dies down as the crowd is feeling excited about this confrontation happening.)
Candice Blair: I’m aware that it’s your camera time, but… it’s mine now.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Who in the hell are you? What gives you the audacity to interrupt a lady like myself?
Candice Blair: Oh, I’m Candice Blair. Apparently, my family’s a big deal in this company. Does the last name “Ava” ring a bell with anyone? :thinking:
(The crowd pops at Candice Blair’s question, indicating that they know the last name very well.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Jesus Christ, there’s another one of you? Mama Ava produces more offspring than a rabbit. I mean, I don’t think there’s anyone that thought that a fourth Ava sister existed since you could never amount to anything like the other three. If you’re anything good, you would be wrestling in this company instead of slumping away in the independent wrestling scene. By the way, are you in the right place? Did you get lost on your way to some disgusting bingo hall? Do you know where you are? This is Showdown. You’re in the Key Arena. I know, it’s easy to get this arena and a bingo hall confused since both places are nothing more than disgusting buildings that should get torn down.
(The crowd begins to boo at the slander of their city’s arena.)
Candice Blair: No, I’m in the right place. I mean, that’s so considerate of you to care — not really, but I’m here with a purpose and reason. You see; you, just like everyone else, has constantly asked these questions: “Candice, why aren’t you signed with EAW?” “Candice, do you get bored with wrestling in the Indies?” “Candice, do you feel like your potential is being wasted away by not performing for the best wrestling company in the world?” “Candice, do you want a legacy like your older sisters?” Constantly in interviews and on social media, I’m being asked these questions. But, no one really knows the reason for me leaving developmental in 2017. I think it’s time for me to give a proper explanation.
(Candice Blair took a deep breath.)
Candice Blair: I left EAW because I couldn’t stand EAW’s developmental system. The Performance Center is fantastic and it’s evolved in the past two years. I hated EAW’s developmental structure with a passion. The recruits had to obey a schedule and if we went off that schedule, the trainers would be on our asses constantly if we were two minutes late for promo class. If I wanted any cosmetic changes with myself, I would need to get their approval and when I wanted to die my hair ANY color, I was told no. I was told that it wasn’t going to fit the image of what people perceived the Ava family was. I couldn’t be booked for other promotions and gain experience in that way. I had to be in New Jersey 4-5 times a week for training and house shows and if I left outside the city, I needed to notify the trainers and if they didn’t like where I was headed, they would make me cancel that plan and stay home. Honestly, it felt like living under my mother’s roof and it felt like I couldn’t be my version of Candice Blair. Sure, it’s “developmental”, but I wasn’t developing in that way I wanted too nor did I feel like I was getting the experienced that I desired. I felt like that was something that could happen on the main roster. I didn’t feel like I needed to be in developmental and when asked if I can move up, they denied it and at that moment, I asked for my release.
Candice Blair: For the next two years, you can say that I went to some excursion around the world and I began to mold myself to the woman I am today. I gained a ton of confidence. I didn’t need to get anyone’s approval with changing myself and how I wanted to get across. I wanted to prove that I was good enough to be on the main roster. I was good enough to be the version of Candice Blair I wanted to be. The Candice that everyone’s seen? She’s dead. She’s gone and what you see is what you get. About a week ago, I didn’t expect to be in this position, but I was called by Sarah Vaughn — you know, the one that smiles like this: 🙂 Yeah, THEY CALLED ME — it wasn’t until I met with Sarah where I was told that they wanted to offer me a lucrative contract. I told her I wasn’t a fan of EAW’s world tour structure and I didn’t like being tied to anything, but Sarah Vaughn assured me that it wasn’t some generic EAW contract. This contract provides me to be part of any brand and compete whenever needed — so the thought of me being tied to a brand is out of the window. It’s not a full-time EAW contract. You won’t be seeing me wrestling every week. I could still do my independent wrestling dates and the best part of it all? I didn’t need to go through a developmental system —
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Wow, isn’t that chipper for you? However, did you have to make all of that effort come out, use my valuable camera time and explain all of that? I’m sure some lengthy Instagram post would have done the trick. Is that why you came out here because I don’t like being interrupted —
Candice Blair: I wasn’t finished yet, Kensi. May I call you, Kensi? Well, I just did. You see; I not only wanted to explain that little story, but when I signed my name on that special little contract, I asked one simple question: when do I start? Sarah told me to go to Jenny Punk and that’s why I was backstage tonight. Jenny is a woman that is always looking for the next big thing on Showdown and she’ll invest her time and energy in promising talent and that’s exactly what she saw in me. Going to her, I was expecting a match at Christmas in Dubai or whatever, but it seems like my match is going to happen a bit sooner.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Good for you! Can you get out of my ring now?
Candice Blair: Aren’t you going to ask when my match is going to be at?
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: If it makes you leave my ring sooner, just say it.
Candice Blair: Jenny Punk said that I can have a match at Road to Redemption.
(The crowd pops for the announcement.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Gee, congrats! Why am I not surprised that we’re getting another silver spoon Ava sister reaping in the rewards from her older sister’s hard work?
Candice Blair: I better watch your mouth if I was you, but it seems like over the next two weeks, we are going to get acquainted with each other because you’re not going to be the only one in this ring to step into the Specialists Chamber. At Road to Redemption, I am stepping into the Specialists Chamber!
(The crowd cheers for the announcement as Kensingten Calhoun-Astor seems a little taken aback at the announcement.)
Candice Blair: You talk about wanting to make an impression and a name for yourself, but I’m looking to do the exact same thing and I’m throwing my hat into the ring. I see this match was an opportunity as a way to make an immediate impact in this company. I am putting more attention to this match than it was receiving as before. I mean, just a few weeks before Road to Redemption and we’re just hearing about the match? I mean, the only woman that people gave a damn as a Specialists Champion lost her title last night. I would be doing the newly crowned champion a favor by providing the match with the attention it desires because with the women left to compete in the match? They aren’t noteworthy. They aren’t compelling or interesting and most importantly…
(Candice Blair gets closer to Kensingten Calhoun-Astor’s face before raising the microphone to her lips.)
Candice Blair: They aren’t Candice Blair.
(Candice Blair takes a step back as Kensingten Calhoun-Astor, who chuckles in response, not being able to contain herself.)
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: You haven’t been here a minute and already talking a big game? I can respect that, but do you know who you’re in the ring with? I’m Kensingten Calhoun-Astor. I got more talent in my little pinkie than you do in your entire body. If I were you, I would choose my words carefully because I’ve had it (raises her hand above her head) up to here with you. It seems like you need a lady like myself to teach you some respect.
Candice Blair: What’s stopping you from doing that right now, huh?
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: I’m not wrestling tonight and especially not in Seattle of all places.
(The crowd begins to boo at the slander of their city again.)
Candice Blair: Understood, but when you decide to stop being a lady and grow a pair, let me know because I wouldn’t mind sending you a message before Road to Redemption.
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: Honestly, you get in the ring with me and I’ll send you back to the bingo halls where you belong. Be careful what you ask for, Candice.
(Kensingten Calhoun-Astor drops the microphone as “Hell on Heels” picks up again. Candice Blair and Kensingten exchange some looks at each other before Kensingten leaves the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: Candice Blair has thrown her name into the Specialists Chamber Match! I have fucking goosebumps at the moment. She’s only had one EAW match and that was the Specialist Rampage in 2018. She is stepping in a structure that could end her wrestling career if she’s not careful.
Eve: Kensingten Calhoun-Astor has one target on her back going into the match, but Candice Blair may have said something that could piss off the Specialists Champion herself. :lupe:
Deadprez: Am I the only one that wants to see these two going one-on-one? I want to see what Candice is made off in a standard match.
(The last shot is of Kensingten Calhoun-Astor standing on top of the ramp as she looks back at Candice Blair, who sarcastically waves at her.)
(A camera pans to a splitscreen of Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava on one side and Heavenly Hell at the other. Both teams are making their way to the ring as the fans explode at the sight of these four Elitists.)
Gavin Kirkland (in the background): WE HAVE OUR MAIN EVENT!!! JAMIE O’HARA AND CAMERON ELLA AVA FACE HEAVENLY HELL!! THE WINNING TEAM MOVES ONTO ROAD TO REDEMPTION!!! THAT MATCH IS NEXT!!!
(Commercial break promoting this week’s episode of Voltage.)
(Showdown returns from commercial break as “ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli hits, and Cameron Ella Ava walks out to the stage with a big smile on her face as she is dressed to compete. “ULTRAnumb” is replaced by “Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA [EAW Edit] and Jamie O’Hara walks out to the stage with a confident smirk on his face. He looks to his wife, and their facial expressions tell the story, they are happy as ever to team together and get the opportunity at earning the biggest tag team victory of their marriage – but dread the potential idea of having to come against each other for the same prize, the Answers World Championship. The two stroll down the ramp side by side with one another, prepared for the upcoming obstacle. )
Gina Romano: The following is an EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER QUALIFYING MATCH SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!!!! Introducing first, both residing in Los Angeles, California, and weighing in at a combined weight of 320 POOOOUNNNNDSSSSS!!! THE TEAM OF JAAAAMMIIIIEEEEEEEE OOOOO’HARRRRAAAAAAAAAAAA AND CAMMMEROOOOOOOOOON ELLLAAAAAAAA AVVVVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
Eve: Imagine being husband and wife, relying on each other night after night both in the ring and obviously at home; only to be being placed in a potential situation where you are the person standing in the way of what your significant other wants more than anything.
Gavin Kirkland: Well you can’t act like they didn’t ask for this! You both want to be Answers World Champion? Very well, but you’re going to have to rely on each other against the most seasoned team of raven haired hotties in the world – who just so happen to be at the very top of their game! And IF, and that’s a big IF you manage to come out on top, guess what? You’re rivals now!
Deadprez: I agree, the best thing for Jamie and Cam to do is charge every obstacle standing in their way to the game. I’ve seen relationships, marriages and family bonds become shattered over the years in this business. Eventually you have to decide whether you’re married to each other, or married to the game.
(“No More” by Disturbed blasts through the speakers as the crowd gives a mixed ovation for the Unified Tag Team Champions. Constance Blevins and Minerva come out in matching ring gear with the Unified Tag Team Championships on their waist. Heavenly Hell look laser focused on their opponents in the ring, not really paying attention to anything else, but them. )
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING THEIR OPPONENTS…THEY ARE THE CURRENT REIGNING AND DEFENDING ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS….”THE ABSOLVED” CONSTANCE BLEVINS AND “THE GYPSY MOTH” MINERVA!! THEY ARE…. HEEEEAAAAAVVVVEEEEEENNNNNNNLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY HEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!
Eve: A duo who does not have this problem or moral quandary so to speak are Heavenly Hell. It would be an incredible sight to see either one of these extraordinary talented women become Answers World Champion, but that isn’t what unites them is it?
Deadprez: It sure ain’t. Heavenly Hell have something to prove, and last week they showed ILLIONAIRES just that with their united front which deserves all the praise in the world if you ask me. They managed to recoup just 24 hours after being outclassed and arguably humiliated at Wicked Games, and turn the tables on their Unified Tag Team Championship challengers. But you can tell that wasn’t just a one shot deal, they are fighting every day to bring the momentum back on their side, and I have it on good authority that they take this match against two Hall of Famers here tonight as the most serious match of their careers so far.
Eve: As they should, not to mention they would enter the Extreme Elimination Chamber together which puts each other at a massive advantage. Even if ILLIONAIRES managed to come away with the tag team titles at Road to Redemption, Heavenly Hell could no pun intended find ultimate redemption in walking away with the biggest prize in the game. What do you think about their odds Gavin?
Gavin Kirkland: ….
Eve: Any input at all Gavin?
Gavin Kirkland: :drool: Minerva…
( DING! DING! DING! )
Eve: Astute analysis which is why we’re thrilled to have you as a part of the Showdown broadcast commentary team! Back to you Deadprez!
Deadprez: Cameron Ella Ava is starting this thing off right now with Constance Blevins in a first time meeting, they kick off this engagement with a collar and elbow lock up. Blevins and Ava really getting at each other going around in circles and really getting at each other like two fierce bulls. Both young ladies have met before and last time they did it was Cam who came out on top, but Blevins is obviously looking for a different outcome this time around.
Eve: Interestingly enough they’re going at each other in an eerily similar fashion as last time, really jockeying for position until Blevins shoves Ava back into the ropes. Ava walks forward and Blevins attempts a stiff shoulder block! But Ava eats that! And fires away with a few forearm strikes for her roubles! Blevins with a shoot kick to the ribs! Ava caught that, and Blevins goes for a WINDMILL KICK! AVA DUCKS THE BOOT! BLEVINS REELS AVA IN FOR THE FRONT WHEELBARROW PIN! But before Ava can kick out of that, Blevins drops a nice leg drop over the chest, before dashing back up and dropping an elbow drop this time! Blevins snaps in a snug rear chin lock, forcing Ava to expend more energy than I’m sure she would have liked in order to regain a vertical base. Eventually Ava slings Blevins right off of her, both Elitists scramble up, and Blevins takes Ava back down with a quick double leg before mounting over her, locking hands with her and attempting to pin her shoulders to the mat.
Eve: Ava shoots the shoulder up, both ladies are on the mat struggling –
Gavin Kirkland: Am I the ONLY one picking up on the very clear sexual tension between Cam and Constance? Is anybody else going to talk about this?! Their last match they were on top of each other non stop, it was like softcore porn, and just look at how Connie is just mounting the milk jugs of Ava! If only oh if only their clothes were off..
Eve: I’m sure you’d love that, wouldn’t you Gavin. I digress, Blevins yanks Ava up from the may by her wrists but Ava catches her with a drop toe hold. COULD SHE ALREADY BE LOOKING FOR THE AVA LOCK????? NO! Blevins sends Ava across the ring with her leg strength. Ava is lured into the Heavenly Hell corner in order to chase after Blevins, but Blevins intercepts her by catching her by the waist and slinging her over her shoulder. And drives her spine first into the turnbuckle! Tag! Minerva enters, Blevins hoists Ava back up over her shoulder by the waist for a bear hug again and Minevera brings Ava DOWN WITH THE CLOTHESLINE! BEAR HUG CLOTHESLINE COMBO FROM HEAVENLY HELL, FOLLOWED BY A DOUBLE ELBOW DROP! Blevins drops to one knee, extending the other, and Minerva scoops Ava up for a SCOOP SLAM OVER THE KNEE! Lateral press from Minerva while Blevins steps out to the apron.
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWW-
Gavin Kirkland: Kick out by Cammy! Mamiminerva is asserting her dominance over Cameron Ella Ava in the early going thanks in part to the teamwork from her partner. Minerva takes Cam over to one of the corners and bounces her face off of the top turnbuckle several times! Before bouncing her head off of the middle turnbuckle! And when Cam collapses against the bottom turnbuckle, Minerva drives the sole of her boot across Cameron Ella Ava’s semen landing pad of a chinny chin chin, prompting the referee to count away!
Ref: 1! 2! 3! 4!
Gavin Kirkland: Minerva relents, Ava attempts to pull herself back up using those middle ropes at the corner, and Minerva attempts a POP UP FLAPJACK BY THE LEGS! No Cam lands on her feet! JUMPING ROUNDHOUSE! CAUGHT THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION AND MY SULTRY GOTH MISTRESS RIGHT OVER THE DOME! Cameron takes Minerva up from behind and delivers a LEG TRAP NEE BREAKER! Minerva hobbling on one foot, and Ava wants a LEG TRAP GERMAN SUPLEX! But Minerva manages to land on her one foot from behind, before delivering a BRIDGING BACK SUPLEX PIN OF HER OWN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOO-
Deadprez: Kick out! What a clap back power move from Minerva I must tell you. The two are on their way back up and Minerva caught Ava with a big time mongolian chop! Forearm strike! Shoot kick to the ribs! ROLLING BACKHAND! Ava ducks that and counters with a POP UP FLAPJACK, FORCING MINERVA UP IN THE AIR AND CRASHING DOWN RIGHT ON HER FACE! Ava backpedals over to her own corner, and in comes Jamie O’Hara! Minerva is already up and she comes charging after Ava! Ava lures Minerva to the ropes, ducks under, and O’HARA FROM THE APRON YANKS THEM DOWN TO SEND MINERVA TUMBLING TO RINGSIDE!!! Blevins is in the ring and she catches Cameron Ella Ava off guard with a superkick!!! O’Hara springs over the ropes, back into the ring, and takes Blevins down with a SLINGBLADE!!! He sprints over to the ropes, careens off of them and comes right back across the ring! CLEARING THE ROPES! AND TAKING MINERVA BACK DOWN AT RINGSIDE WITH A TOPE PLANCHA!!!! MINERVA’S DOWN! Jamie O’Hara sends the Unified Tag Team Champion back into the ring, he watches Minerva scramble back up from a discrete position! Minerva turns around and spots O’Hara – TOO LATE! SHOTGUN DROPKICK!!! INTO THE CORNER!!! O’HARA HEADS STRAIGHT FOR THE APRON NOW, CLIMBING UP TO THE TOP QUICKLY TO PUT THIS CONTEST AWAY AND SEAL HIS SPOT IN THE EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER! THERE IT IS!!!! GENKI CANNON!!!!!!!!
Eve: EVASION BY MINERVA! A match saving one at that! O’Hara rolls through the double foot stomp off of the top rope, turns around, SPIN KICK BELOW THE BELT!
Gavin Kirkland: WAS THAT A LOW BLOW?
Eve: THE WHOLE CROWD REACTED AS IF IT WERE, BUT IT’S TOO CLOSE TO CALL! THE REF DOESN’T SEEM TO THINK SO, BUT O’HARA IS DOUBLED OVER AND MINERVA REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES WITH A TON OF MOMENTUM, CATCHING HIM WITH A SCISSORS KICK!!! MINERVA ROLLS O’HARA OVER ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE LEGS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Deadprez: KICK OUT! What the hell though, that was a low blow! :wtf:
Eve: We have a replay on the way.
( REPLAY: Minerva dodges the Genki Cannon, and O’Hara turns around into a spin kick to the midsection by Minerva. From the referee’s vantage point, standing behind Jamie O’Hara, it looks to be nothing more than a kick to the waistline. At a different camera angle, it is clear Minerva landed the kick between Jamie O’Hara’s legs. The crowd reacts in outrage over the replay on the screen. )
Eve: Very clearly a major miscall by the referee, but no point in dwelling over it, these things happen in just about every sport. Minerva is straddling Jamie O’Hara’s back with a camel clutch to wear him down.
Gavin Kirkland: Oh my she seems to be whispering naughty things into his ear.
Eve: Not without occasionally hammering a few strikes to his face, keeping him leveled. O’Hara is pushing through it somehow, etching closer by the inches to the ropes. There are some deuling chants here, all four of these Elitists are exceedingly popular among the EAW Universe for good reason. Minerva is trying her best to clamp down on O’Hara but he’s a hair away from getting up to one knee and rendering the camel clutch void. Therefore she catches him from behind with a rear naked chokehold! Wraps her legs around his torso. O’Hara powers up to both feet regardless!!! He’s turned to his wife Cameron Ella Ava on the apron and is making the trek over to tag her back in this, but Minevera switches gears and tosses O’Hara back to the mat! She stands over him while he’s on all fours, RAKE TO THE BACK! O’Hara turns over really feeling the sting from those nails digging into his flesh, and there’s a RUNNING KNEE RIGHT AGAINST THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE FOR HIS TROUBLES! Minerva sprawls over O’Hara, locking eyes with Ava while she covers him in a rather lascivious manner.
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOO-
Deadprez: O’Hara shoulders out of that!
Gavin Kirkland: Oh my god those are two people I would literally pay just to sit in a corner and watch fuck.
Eve: Ignore him, DP. Minerva drags O’Hara over to her team corner by the boot and tags in Constance Blevins. They both take him by a leg and snatch one of his wrists as well! DOUBLE MONKEY FLIP! Sending O’Hara crashing onto his back! O’Hara sits up, Blevins rebounds off the ropes! Ava runs after her on the apron, but is too late and just narrowly misses her with a swipe, as Blevins explodes back with a LOW DROPKICK RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE OF THE ACE! Blevins drops over him now with a lateral press cover!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWWWW-
Deadprez: Shoulder up from O’Hara! Blevins goes right back to work, yanking back both of O’Hara’s arms with all she has while jamming the knee straight into the small of the back. O’Hara being stretched out, but he’s doing his best to move his legs and therefore his body in a good enough position to escape, counter out of it, something.
Eve: Looks like he may have found just that, O’Hara has managed to slither onto his back and send Blevins over in front of him with a headscissors takeover!
Deadprez: Blevins comes right after him, he drops back down to the mat, she jumps over him and rebounds off of the ropes to attempt a big time CALF KICK!!! COUNTERED WITH A DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP!!!! Blevins hits the canvas hard and rolls around clutching that right leg which could have had a tendon snapped for all we know! Those dragonscrews are nothing to mess with! O’Hara takes Blevins up by the head and fakes like he’s going to take her back to his corner, only to toss her STRAIGHT INTO MINERVA, BUMPING HER OFF OF THE APRON! O’HARA FROM BEHIND! TIGER SUPLEX, SENDING BLEVINS RIGHT ON THE BACK OF HER NECK! HE ROLLS THROUGH THAT, CONVERTS INTO THE A BEAUTIFUL BRIDGING DRAGON SUPLEX! ROLLS THROUGH THAT NOW, DEADLIFTS BLEVINS UP FROM THE FLOOR, AND LOOKS FOR A REVERSE DDT – ELBOW DROP INTO THE THROAT! HOOK OF THE LEG BY THE KNEE PAD BY O’HARA!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWWOOOO-
Gavin Kirkland: Blevins fights out! Credit to Jamie, he has fought back even after just taking a boot right to the nuts earlier. You can tell in his body language that he’s still feeling the effects, as any man would, and because of that he’s bringing his wife back into this to get the sexually charged exchange between Cammy and Connie back underway! Tag! In comes Cameron! Jamie deadlifts Constance from the floor courtesy of a double wrist clutch… oh my!!! STARDUST BREAKER?!?! NO!!! O’HARA SPINS BLEVINS, INTO THE GODDESS’ TOUCH FROM AVA!!!!
Eve: NOBODY HOME! BLEVINS DUCKS UNDER THAT, AND AVA BLASTS O’HARA RIGHT ACROSS THE HEAD! JAMIE JUST TOOK DOWN CAM! And Blevins rolls Ava up from behind quickly out of desperation!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWW-
Eve: WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT? BLEVINS DEADLIFTS CAMERON ELLA AVA UP FROM THE FLOOR, FROM THE ROLL UP, AND DELIVERS A SITOUT POWERBOMB! HOLDS IN THE PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-
Deadprez: Kick out! Ava and Blevins are on a race up from the mat, Cameron Ella Ava is using the support of the ropes after just being dropped violently into the canvas. Constance Blevins has a furious scowl on her face and she comes right after Ava looking for a SPEAR!!! AVA USES THE ROPES BEHIND HER FOR SUPPORT TO COUNTER INTO A SUNSET FLIP PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWOOOOOOOOOO
Deadprez: Blevins uses both boots to kick Ava in the head mid-kick out! She darts up to her feet, Ava is slower to the draw, PUNT KICK STRAIGHT INTO THE SIDE!!! Ava rolls out of the ring and drops to the floor in a world of hurt. Blevins is watching Ava recover along the apron, and she delivers a BASEBALL SLIDE BENEATH THE ROPES! AVA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! BUT MINERVA FROM OUT OF NOWHERE TAKES HER OUT WITH A RUNNING AX HANDLE SMASH! O’Hara is heading over to defend his wife from that cheap shot, Minerva getting the hell out of dodge. CONSTANCE BLEVINS! HOOOOOLY SMOKES!!! SUICIDE DIVE INTO THE TORNADO DOUBLE DDT!!! TAKING HUSBAND AND WIFE OUT!!! CONSTANCE BLEVINS JUST NAILED A RIDICULOUS INNOVATIVE MOVE DOWN TO THE FLOOR, AND SHE MAY HAVE SINGLE HANDEDLY CLINCHED THE ENTIRE CONTEST! BLEVINS ROLLS AVA BACK INTO THE RING AND TAGS IN MINERVA! BLEVINS TAKES CAMERON ELLA AVA OFF HER FEET, HOLDING HER UP IN AN ELECTRIC CHAIR DROP POSITION.
Gavin Kirkland: NO!!!!! GLORY!!!!! END OF STORY!!!!! DIVING CUTTER FROM MINERVA, SENDING HER PLUNGING OFF OF CONNIE’S SHOULDERS AND CRASHING FACE FIRST INTO THE MAT! ROLLS HER OVER! O’HARA SLIDES IN THE RING! BLEVINS TOPPLES ON TOP OF HIM! IT’S OVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-
Eve: AVA SHOOTS THE SHOULDER UP! SOMEHOW SOME WAY CAMERON ELLA AVA IS STILL IN THIS! What a phenomenal show of resilience from one of the greatest Elitists in the history of this company. But Minerva is much less impressed than this audience or anybody at home is, she has bloodlust written all over her face! Minerva is primed and ready to put this contest to an end! She pulls Cameron Ella Ava up from the floor and scoops her up… INTO THE PRINCESS KILLER!!!!! TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER TO COMPLETELY IMPALE THE GODDESS!!!!
Deadprez: Ava is fighting it! Minerva is having a hard time bringing her upside down! I don’t know how the hell Cameron still has enough inside of her to put up such a fight after that match ending doubleteam, but Ava slides off of her shoulders at the last second somehow! Before Minerva can even turn around AVA MUSCLES MINERVA UP TO HER SHOULDERS!!! BREAKING BARRIERS!!!! Not so fast! Before the Argentine Backbreaker can connect Minerva sends Ava hitting the mat with an armdrag reversal! Ava hits the mat and is getting up with the support of the ropes! BICYCLE KICK ACROSS THE FACE!!! THAT HAS AVA DRAPED OVER THE MIDDLE ROPE ABOUT TO FALL FROM THE RING, BUT MINERVA AIN’T FINISHED YET! MINERVA RICOCHETS OFF THE ROPES AND COMES RIGHT BACK FOR AN EVEN MORE EXPLOSIVE ATTACK – NO WAY!!! AVA WITH THE SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK, TURNING MINERVA INSIDE OUT! MINERVA IS ALREADY BACK UP! BREAKING BARRIERS!!!!!!!!! ARGENTINE BACKBREAKER BY CAMERON ELLA AVA TO SNAP MINERVA IN HALF, AND SEAL THE DEAL! AT THE 11TH HOUR! COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA FIGHTS OUT OF THAT! We’ve seen that move put quite a few matches away when delivered by Cameron, but Minerva still had far too much left! Cameron Ella Ava knows damned well she has to get her ass over to that team corner and tag in her husband! She may have averted disaster but I promise you her luck is going to run out sooner rather than later! Minerva is dragging herself over to her own corner, Cam has gotta dig inside of herself as quickly as she can, lug that sweet latina booty over to your corner and tag in your Aeropostale model or else you’re done for!
Deadprez: TOO LATE! MINERVA TAGS IN BLEVINS! BLEVINS COMES RIGHT AFTER CAMERON AND CATCHES HER BY THE SNEAKER! OH!!! CAM CLOCKS BACK AN ELBOW ACROSS THE JAW! AND TAGS IN O’HARA!

Eve: MINERVA SPITS THE DARK INTO CAMERON’S EYES! STOPPING THE STARDUST BREAKER! JAMIE WAS CAUGHT OFF GUARD MID MOOD! DEAFENING ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY CONSTANCE BLEVINS TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!!! THAT DISTRACTION MAY HAVE COST HIM, O’HARA IS PLACED INTO MINERVA’S ARMS AND THE TWO MEMBERS OF HEAVENLY HELL ASSIST IN GETTING JAMIE O’HARA UP INTO MINERVA’S SHOULDERS! CONSTANCE BLEVINS CLIMBS UP TO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE! THE FINGER OF GOD!!!!!!! TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER BY MINERVA WITH THE DIVING SPIKE ASSIST COURTESY OF BLEVINS!

( The count stops. )
Eve: What is going on? HEY COME ON!
( Chris Elite is seen at ringside wearing a referee shirt over his ring gear. The crowd counts to “3, 4, 5…” while the irate official screams at Chris Elite over dragging him out of the ring. The ref continues to chastise him for an extended period of time, but Chris Elite pulls out a document informing the referee that by way of the Gawd Contract he has inserted himself into this match as the new special guest referee. )
Gavin Kirkland: IT LOOKS LIKE CHRIS ELITE HAS USED HIS GAWD CONTRACT POWERS TO MAKE HIMSELF THE OFFICIAL!
Eve: HE CAN DO THAT?
Gavin Kirkland: SURE AS HELL SEEMS LIKE IT! AND CONSIDERING THE TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE ALREADY SEEN IN THIS MATCH, HE’LL BE A SONIC LEAP FORWARD IN IMPROVEMENT! The sad sap of an official hangs his head in shame and walks up the ramp. Chris Elite is entering the ring about to call this right down the middle – ONLY TO BE STORMED BY A FURIOUS CONSTANCE BLEVINS WITH RIGHTS AND LEFTS! ELITE CAN HARDLY DEFEND HIMSELF! CONSTANCE IS COMING AFTER HIM LIKE A HOUSE OF FIRE, FORCING HIM TO TAKE THE ABUSE WHILE ALL HE CAN DO IS COVER UP! ELITE IS ATTEMPTING TO FIGHT BACK, BUT HE’S BEING OVERWHELMED! THIS IS SCARY GUYS, I DON’T THINK I’VE EVER SEEN CONSTANCE BLEVINS THIS ANGRY! IT’S LIKE THE GOOD PURE CHRISTIAN GIRL WHO PAYS HER TITHINGS AND EATS AT CHIK-FIL-A HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY THE DEVIL HIMSELF!
Deadprez: She is beating the hell out of Chris Elite! That is a woman moved by explosive anger and adrenaline, probably more than I’ve ever seen before either Gavin! BUT HERE COMES JAMIE! FROM BEHIND! STARDUST BREAKER!!!!!!! JAMIE O’HARA FOUND THE OPENING, AND HE COLLAPSES TO THE FLOOR STILL VERY MUCH ROCKED BY THE PUNISHMENT HE’S TAKEN! O’HARA DROPS OVER CONSTANCE BLEVINS WITH BARELY ANY IDEA WHERE HE IS, HIS EYES LOOK GLAZED OVER, BUT IT’S GOOD ENOUGH FOR CHRIS ELITE TO DROP TO THE MAT!
Chris Elite: ONE!TWO!THREE!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA [EAW Edit] takes back over on the arena speakers and Jamie O’Hara rolls off of Constance Blevins, still very much worn out, and he looks up at Chris Elite with a look of slight confusion. )
Gina Romano: Here are your winners, JAMIE O’HARA AND CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!!
Eve: Chris Elite got himself involved with malicious, dare I say vindictive intentions! We know Chris is the Petty King so to speak, but what does it say when a guy who can declare himself an entrant into the Extreme Elimination Chamber decides he’s going to screw two other people out of the same match all because he doesn’t like them?
Gavin Kirkland: Constance Blevins and Minerva were a fragment of a fragment away from victory, I won’t deny that. But don’t act like they had the most squeaky clean match either! If anything Chris Elite simply righted a wrong from earlier in this match (sorry Minerva bby please don’t possess my cat ilysm :mjcry: )
( Minerva and Constance Blevins are at ringside recovering while Cameron Ella Ava is by her husband’s side in the ring, still trying to get mist out of her eyes. Chris Elite looks down at both of them telling them “you bozos owe me now” before taking his leave. As he exits, a scornful and wrathful Minerva watches him go from ringside with a look of utter hatred on her face. )
Deadprez: Two wrongs sure don’t make a right, but two Hall of Famers the calibre of Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava being added to an Extreme Elimination Chamber makes for a god damn unbelievably stacked chamber! In addition to Dynasty’s chamber which was announced in full last night, we might be looking at the most stacked Road to Redemption Elimination Chambers in many, many years!
Eve: I’ve got to agree with you there Prez. Dynasty and Showdown’s chambers are already looking like two of the best chambers of all time, the starpower is reminiscentcam of the R2R chambers back in 09′. And while we see Jamie O’Hara and Cameron Ella Ava in solidarity now, something tells me that chamber is going to put all that into question – if not the woodchipper!
Gavin Kirkland: Nothing will ruin a relationship quite like an Extreme Elimination Chamber.
Eve: Don’t say that! These two have overcome a lot of things and Road to Redemption will be no different. But, that’s it for this edition of Showdown! Signing off for Deadprez and Gavin! Goodnight!
