(Camera opens to a sea of cheering fans in the sold out Ryogoku Hall in Tokyo, Japan. Various signs are seen such as “強いスタイルが死んだ”, “退屈するとHuluが見えます”, and “チキンナゲット”.)
SCREENBAR — SOLD OUT
(Camera pans across the raucous crowd before settling on the commentary desk of Eve and Deadprez.)
Eve: HELLO EVERYONE! ITS SATURDAY NIGHT AND THAT MEANS ITS TIME FOR EAW’S FLAGSHIP SHOW, SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN!! THIS IS OUR LAST SHOW BEFORE WRATH OF THE DRAGON AND THINGS ARE HEATING UP ON THE BLUE BRAND! I’M FORMER EAW ELITIST EVE AND THIS IS DEADPREZ!
Deadprez: Ok so no accolades in the introductions for me this week.
Eve: Who pissed in your cereal?
Deadprez: I hate being here. These strong style fools lurking around every corner, begging and shit.
Eve: Well to take your mind off that, we have a big time show for you all this week! We will see a tag team match featuring participants of two different matchups for Wrath of the Dragon! Jack Haze will team with Terry Chambers to take on the Cody Marshall and the Interwire Champion Drake King! The result of this match could show a major clue at what happens next week!
Deadprez: And we cant ignore seeing the New Breed Champion himself in action again this week! Justiciar Eric laid out the challenge and now he steps up to the plate! And from what I’ve been told we can expect a special appearance as well!
Eve: And we can’t forget our main event tonight as the man who laid out Cage last week, Chris Elite, will take on the recently returned Michael Bishop! All that and so much more on an amazing episode of Saturday Night—
(“Kai Tangata” by Alien Weaponry plays as Ronin comes out looking frustrated. He grabs at his hair then starts walking to the ring accompanied by a confused mixed reaction)
Eve: SERIOUSLY? I WAS NEARLY DONE! THIS AGAIN! FUCK IT! TIME FOR OUR OPENING MATCH! TAKE IT GINA!
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for one fall…
Crowd (in Japanese): ONE FALL!!!
Gina Romano: Introducing first, from Los Angeles California weighing in at 239 POUNDS, THE REJECTOR…RONIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Ronin hasn’t been doing so hot these past few weeks, after being angered because of losing 2 weeks ago, last week he thought he was going to pass by Provencal easy, yet Provencal rolled him up and WON!
Eve: Yeah Ronin has certainly come with a intention, he doesn’t want to be known as a laughing stock, not now, not ever.
(Ronin enters the ring and looks around at the crowd, he gives a small smirk before going to the corner. “Kai Tangata” fades off and is replaced by “Applause” by Lady Gaga accompanied by pyro. The crowd is confused but also excited as Archimedes J. Manson comes out with his “BONKERZ-OOKA”. He shoots and drenches people with whip cream, he smiles as Ronin looks in disgust)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT, FROM THE DIVIDED STATES OF HYSTERIA WEIGHING IN AT 205 POUNDS, THE ANIMANIAC, ARCHIMEDES…J…MANSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: :dahell: who is this no life that has managed to sneak into the arena?
Eve: That DP, is Archimedes J Manson, I mean I’d consider him foolish but many people can consider him other things, like the man in the ring right now Ronin, who is absolutely horrified by what he is seeing now, but I think Archimedes has a good chance of winning, let’s see.
(Archimedes enters the ring, Ronin backs up as Archimedes walks to the center of the ring, he aims his “BONKERZ-OOKA” at Ronin but before Archimedes can do anything, Ronin attacks him)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: OH! APPARENTLY THIS MATCH IS UNDERWAY HERE AS RONIN WASTES NO TIME GOING TO WORK ON ARCHIMEDES! Ronin kicking that horrible sex toy out of the ring as he keeps going to town on his opponent, Archimedes pushing away, he slides out of the ring! Ronin coming out, WAIT MANSON GOES ON THE APRON AND KEEPS RONIN THERE! Manson grabbing Ronin into a DDT position, WAIT…RONIN PUSHES MANSON INTO THE BARRICADE, Ronin pushing Manson through the middle rope, Ronin coming into the ring joining Archimedes in the ring. Ronin coming over, WAIT MANSON, SCHOOLBOY, DISCUS ELBOW! Ronin dazed yet he’s still up, Archimedes pulling him in…REVERSE SUPLEX! Manson reaching out, but Ronin rolls out of the ring, Archimedes getting up, BUT RONIN COMING INTO THE RING FROM THE OPPOSITE SIDE, HE POPS ARCHIMEDES UP- MANSON WITH A ELBOW TO RONIN’S HEAD AS HE WAS TRYING TO GO FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX! Ronin moving back, Ronin lunges forward- HADOUKEN BY ARCHIMEDES, but Ronin is standing there confused, OH A KNUCKLE PUNCH TO THE HEAD OF MANSON!
Ronin: (Mouthing) The fuck?
Eve: Ronin jumps on Archimedes, THE GROUND AND POUND! RONIN SLAMMING FIST INTO THE FACE OF ARCHIMEDES J. MANSON! THE REF SPLITS THEM UP, Manson getting up, Ronin spinning him, RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE- NO ARCHIMEDES DUCKS UNDER, MANSON RUNNING THE ROPES, TILT-A-WHIRL FACEBUSTER! Archimedes still on the ground, OH MANSON SLAMS RONIN’S FACE DOWN! He’s putting his hand down his pants…
Eve: Stop being so immature Dead, IT’S A JOY BUZZER! IS THAT THING EVEN ALLOWED, THE REF DOESN’T SEE IT THOUGH! CROSSFACE! I THINK HE CALLS THAT PUT A SMILE ON THAT FACE! Ronin is screaming for his life as the joy buzzer presses against him! OH RONIN WITH A ELBOW TO ARCHIMEDES, BUT HE STILL HOLDS ON- RONIN GOES FOR THE EYES, ARCHIMEDES QUICKLY LET’S GO! Manson covering his face as Ronin circles in on him, Ronin is going up to the top rope…FROG SPLASH! Ronin hooks the leg for the pin!
Ref: ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: KICKOUT! Ronin quickly getting up and PUSHING THE REF, he won’t accept this. But I think he’s forced to give up as he turns around and focuses his attention back on Archimedes J. Manson, he’s waiting for him to get up, he brings Archimedes up on his shoulders. Gorilla Press…SPINEBUSTER- NO MANSON WRAPS AROUND THE NECK OF RONIN QUICKLY AND REVERSES WITH A DDT! Both men are down breathing heavily on the mat, but Manson is up first creeping to the ropes, RONIN GRABBING THE LEG OF MANSON PERHAPS AS A LAST ATTEMPT AT A ADVANTAGE! But Archimedes managing to bring himself up to his feet with the help of the ropes, Manson kicking Ronin’s hand away, Archimedes grabbing Ronin by the head…SINGLE KNEE FACEBREAKER! RONIN’S HEAD CAVING IN AS ARCHIMEDES’ KNEE IMPACTS HIM HARD! Ronin up on his knees, Archimedes throws Ronin in the corner, he stands back…HESITATION DROPKICK BY ARCHIMEDES! Manson soaking in the crowd as he moves to the center of the ring- RONIN RUNS IN WITH A CHOP BLOCK, BRINGING MANSON TO ONE KNEE! Ronin grabbing the head of Manson, he’s holding out his thumb, FROM THE PACIFIC WITH LOVE, THE SAMOAN SPIKE JABS RIGHT INTO THE FOREHEAD OF ARCHIMEDES! Ronin pushing Archimedes down, PIN ATTEMPT!
Ref: ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eve: KICKOUT! HOW?!!??!
Deadprez: I mean it’s a jab with the thumb which is suppose to aim for the eye, but Ronin hit the forehead.
Eve: Oh ok Einstein, Ronin getting up, oh wait, HE’S UP ON THE TOP, you’ve got to assume what he’s up to. He’s waiting for Manson to get up, HE JUMPS, wait, HE LANDS ON HIS FEET, JUMPING HEADBUTT! Very dramatic move by Ronin, Ronin going down on the ground, OH, IT SEEMS HE’S NOT DONE WITH THE HEADBUTTS, AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN! WOW! RONIN COLLAPSES ON THE GROUND! Archimedes getting up before Ronin stumbling backwards looks like clutching his head, Ronin’s up BUT ARCHIMEDES IS ALREADY PREPARED, THE PUNCHLINE, ROLLING THUNDER CLOTHESLINE! ARCHIMEDES FALLS TO THE GROUND AS RONIN LOOKS DEAD! Manson is trying to move to pin Ronin but he’s tired out, OH ARCHIMEDES FALLS ONTO RONIN, PIN!
Ref: ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: KICKOUT! Archimedes was too late on the pin as he wasted too much time on the ground to even bother to make a effort to pin. Manson in a sitting position now, it looks like rubbing his head, Ronin trying to use Archimedes to climb himself up to his feet but he won’t accept that, RONIN MEETS A FOOT TO THE FACE! Manson walking around kicking every part of Ronin’s body now, OH STOMP THE BACK WAKING RONIN UP, Ronin lifted upside down into a suplex position, WAIT RONIN WITH A KNEE TO THE TOP OF MANSON’S HEAD FORCING ARCHIMEDES TO BRING HIM DOWN! POP UP BY RONIN…SIT OUT POWERBOMB! Ronin pushing Manson away looking to finish him off as Archimedes gets up…HIGH-IMPACT SPEAR- NO MANSON MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND THROWS RONIN OUT OF THE RING! Ronin is on the ground as Archimedes falls into the corner taking a breather. Ronin gets on the apron, but Manson is coming, RONIN WITH A SHOULDER THRUST FROM THE MIDDLE ROPE! Ronin entering the ring and, irish whip to Manson, JUMPING KNEE STRIKE LEVELS RONIN TO THE GROUND BUT BRINGS DOWN ARCHIMEDES J. MANSON! Ronin pulling him up with one arm, he pulls him in I think he’s trying to look for another ripcord knee strike…IT CONNECTS! Ronin keeping him up though, ANOTHER KNEE- NO WAIT MANSON GRABS THE LEG, HE PULLS IT OUT PULLING RONIN IN, MANSON LET’S GO OF THE LEG…CLOTHESLINE! Archimedes rolling up to his feet ready to go as Ronin brings himself to his feet using the ropes, OH NO RONIN RUNNING, CLOTHESLINE TO ARCHIMEDES, WAIT KIP-UP BY MANSON, RONIN DOESN’T NOTICE AS HE YELLS AT THE CROWD OH MANSON TAKING ACTION KICKING RONIN IN THE GUT! RONIN GETS UP, A FOREARM- NO ARCHIMEDES GRABBING THE ARM OF RONIN, LAST LAUGH! THE INVERTED STOMP FACEBREAKER LANDS WITH A IMPACT AS RONIN FALLS TO THE GROUND! Manson, CRAWLS TO THE PIN, HE HOOKS THE LEG!
Ref: ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TWO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Applause” plays through the arena again as Archimedes J. Manson, with the help of the ref gets onto his feet. The ref raises his hand but after that he lingers with a smile. He grabs his BONKERZ-OOKA and aims it at Ronin but the ref gets in the ring to convince him not to, which he doesn’t and walks away, still with a smile, but sad)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS YOUR WINNER, ARCHIMEDES, J., MANSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Wow I can’t believe that dimwit actually managed to beat Ronin, out of all people.
Eve: That shows a lot DP but yet again it might be the start for Manson and the end of the road for Ronin. Archimedes’ attitude may make him seem weak but from what he’s shown tonight, he has a lot in store for Showdown.
(Commercial for Wrath of the Dragon next week.)
(Camera opens to find Ahren Fournier pacing backstage in his dressing room with Kassidy Heart sitting on a couch nearby.)
Ahren Fournier: One more week… one more week and I can go back to only being in this cesspool when absolutely necessary. Gah… how do you put up with the stench of these places?
Kassidy Heart: Look. I know it’s odd to you… but this career really is a dream to some people.
Ahren Fournier: Only to fools.
Kassidy Heart: Oh so I’m a fool now?
(Ahren freezes where he is. He turns slowly back towards Kassidy.)
Ahren Fournier: Excuse me?
(Ahren walks over and places his hands on the back rest of the couch, leaning in face to face with Kassidy, looking like a madman.)
Ahren Fournier: YES. FOOL. BECAUSE ONLY A FOOL WOULD COST ME MY CHAMPIONSHIP. ONLY A FOOL WOULD PUT ME IN THIS POSITION. ONLY A FOOL WOULD BE SO FUCKING STUPID!!
(Kassidy is frozen there, she’s seen Ahren angry, but never like this. Spittle flies from his mouth as he speaks.)
Ahren Fournier: THERE IS A REASON WHY ITS GOING TO BE HELL IN A CELL. BECAUSE YOU ARE THERE FOR ONE PURPOSE! OBSERVE. YOU WILL DO NOTHING. YOU CANT GET IN THE CELL, SO YOU CANT FUCK THINGS UP FOR ME AGAIN! WHEN I WIN MY TITLE BACK, THEN YOU MAY RESUME YOUR FORMER DUTIES! BUT UNTIL THEN, YOU KEEP YOUR NOSE CLEAN, AND YOU MAKE DAMN SURE THAT YOU DO NOT PROVE HOW BIG OF A FOOL YOU ARE AGAIN!!!
(Ahren stares at Kassidy as if he’s looking for an answer.)
Ahren Fournier: AM I CLEAR?
(Kassidy hesitates before slowly nodding her head.)
Ahren Fournier: Very good… now… time to be gone preparation for my match…
Kassidy Heart: You know I have match next week too. I’m facing Rav—
Ahren Fournier: Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah! Who do you think actually listens when you speak? Shut the fuck up! I swear you think because your daddy bought you those lips that you can flap them and people will pay attention! Just stop! The most important thing next week is my championship! Not whatever the hell you think you’re doing!
(Kassidy sits there aghast, shocked at his words. Ahren resumes pacing and Kassidy sits there, a somber look crawling across her face.)
(Commercial for Terminus, featuring that match that Ahren doesn’t give a shit about.)
(The camera cuts to Gina Romano in the middle of the ring)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(“Love SOSA” by Chief Keef plays to deafening cheers and boos, yet mostly boos as SOSA Henderson comes out with his New Breed Title firm around his waist. He stops at the stage to take the title of his waist and put it on his shoulders and he starts his walk to the ring)
Gina Romano: Introducing first, from Philly weighing in at 191 POUNDS, HE IS THE NEW BREED CHAMPION…BULLETPROOF, SOSA…HENDERSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Camera then cuts to the commentary desk where Eve and Deadprez are joined by Shane Gates and Giovanni Luciano.)
Eve: And let us welcome our guest commentators for this matchup! Shane Gates and the number one contender to the EAW New Breed Championship, Giovanni Luciano!
Giovanni Luciano: Don’t distract me.
Eve: Well damn.
Deadprez: Here he comes Eve, our New Breed Champion, last week he beat a fan favorite in Korey Gaines which certainly might’ve gotten him on the crowd’s bad side.
Eve: Maybe but tonight he’s going to be up against the polar opposite of Korey Gaines…
(SOSA enters the ring and holds his title high above his head turning the crowd up to a max. “Love SOSA” quiets down and as that happens “Architects” by Rise Against plays to a lot of boos as Justiciar Eric comes out, he shakes his head and walks to the ring with no sign of emotion)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT, FROM JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, WEIGHING IN AT 220 POUNDS, HE IS THE ONE, JUSTICIAR…ERIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shane Gates: Fuck this guy.
Eve: Justiciar Eric came up short last week, well I guess he did, he left his partner Shane Gates before the match even started so oh well. But imagine what this could do for Justiciar Eric if he wins. It might propel him hell it might even get him a New Breed Title shot, this match will determine his future and he better live up to what’s expected.
Deadprez: What’s your take on this after last week, Shane?
Shane Gates: I hope SOSA tears his arm outta socket.
(Justiciar Eric enters the ring and moves awkwardly close to SOSA Henderson before backing away on his own terms. Justiciar Eric trash talks from a distance while SOSA watches him with a smug look)
(DING! DING! DING!)

(DING! DING! DING!)
(SOSA Henderson stays sitting down looking at a fallen Justiciar Eric. “Love SOSA” plays and he stands over Eric.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN YOUR WINNER, THE NEW BREED CHAMPION, SOSA HENDERSON!
Deadprez: HE’S DONE IT, SOSA HAS MANAGED TO BEAT JUSTICIAR ERIC AFTER A GRUESOME BATTLE!
Eve: Yes and I’m sure when Justiciar Eric wakes up he won’t be happy about this. And now—
Deadprez: GIOVANNI LUCIANO JUST SLID INTO THE RING WITH THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP AND BLASTED SOSA FROM BEHIND! GIOVANNI HOLDS THE TITLE HIGH IN THE AIR AS HE STANDS OVER THE CHAMPION! AND SHANE GATES NOW DRAGGING JUSTICIAR ERIC OUT OF THE RING AND NOW… THATS A SHOULDER LOCK BUT…
Justiciar Eric (off mic): AAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHH!!!
Eve: SHANE JUST COMPLETELY DISLOCATED ERIC’S SHOULDER! ITS FLOPPING AROUND! And now here come the medics to try and take care of it, rushing by Giovanni who is making his exit up the ramp, his eyes still locked on the downed champion! And Shane Gates now watching with a smirk as Eric is tended to by the medics.
Shane Gates (off mic): Enjoy that path to Pain for Pride, motherfucker.
Deadprez: Both Eric and SOSA laid to waste after a grueling matchup! This scene is nothing short of a car wreck! We need some order out here!
(Commercial for Shark Week featuring Lucas Johnson.)
(Camera opens to Provencal inside the ring as “Ambitionz Az a Ridah” by Tupac hits and TLA makes his way out onto the stage to cheers from the audience.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen… the following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making his way to the ring from Tlaxcala, Mexico, weighing in at 210 pounds… T! L! A!
Eve: TLA is always a fan favorite and you know he’s feeding off this energy tonight! He’s trying to figure out what his path to Pain for Pride will be, and he knows every match is a step in that direction!
Deadprez: Well you begin to wonder what that path will actually be. He no longer has the Openweight Championship, which many believed to be his road to the World Championship. And after the scenario that left him and Malcolm Jones cashing in at the same time, TLA has to be feeling a little robbed.
Eve: Well he faces a dangerous threat tonight in Provencal. You know TLA is ready for a war!
Gina Romano: And his opponent, already in the ring from Triffouillis-les-Oies, France, weighing in at 204 pounds… PROVENCAL!
(TLA moves to the center of the ring where he reaches out and shakes Provencal’s hand before the match starts, obviously honored to meet such an intense warrior. Provencal just looks confused. Both men then get set in their corners as the referee calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: Both men move to the center of the ring! Provencal looking nervous as— KICK TO THE GUT BY TLA! GRABS THE HEAD OF PROVENCAL! MEXICAN DESTROYER! TLA CANT BELIEVE HE ALREADY PULLED THAT OFF! HE DROPS ON TOP OF THE BUTTER KNIFE AND HOOKS THE LEG!!!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: We not really about to act shocked are we?
Eve: WHAT AN UPSET!
Deadprez: The fuck wrong with you?
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… T! L! A!
(The crowd cheers wildly. But grows somber as all of Provencal’s children then walk out down the ramp, gathering their father from the ring, and then carry him away.)
Deadprez: Seriously, when the hell did we start a traveling day care?
(TLA reaches out and is handed a microphone from the ringside area.)
TLA: Primero, my highest regards to one of the greatest wrestlers and fathers of all time, Provencal! To get a win like that over him is something I can call a career achievement. BUT! That’s not what I need to talk about… there is una cosa that TLA wants. And that’s to know the road didn’t end. Everyone around the world has seen me. They see what I do in this ring. And they all know that all I need is the right shot and I can make it to the very top. So…
Hurricane Hawk! Come on out here!
(Everyone watches the stage as nothing happens. After a moment, TLA speaks again.)
TLA: Come on, Hawk! Get yo ass out here! Necesito palabras, amigo!
(Camera cuts backstage where Hurricane Hawk is just at the curtain to the stage area, but Chris Elite and Big Mike are holding him up.)
Chris Elite: So we on? I got the match?
Hurricane Hawk: Yes! Yes, already! You versus Cage at Wrath of the Dragon. I’ll make the match now give me some space, I got things to do!
(Big Mike and Chris Elite then walk off as Hawk steps through the curtain and out onto the stage, the camera then cuts back to the main show area.)
Hurricane Hawk: TLA, man, Grand Rampage was what it was. The Openweight Championship was cashed in and you didn’t win. So there’s not much I can do there.
TLA: The fuck you mean? You gonna give the man who took the pin the match he wants but you won’t give me something to work with? You know damn well I should’ve been in the match one on one with Ahren! I won the Openweight Championship before Malcolm won King of Elite and I was there ready to cash in before him too! It was you who made the decision to use both cash ins!
Hurricane Hawk: My hands are tied, TLA. I’m sorry.
TLA: I’m not out here demanding you give me the Openweight Championship back. I know they not gonna let that go. But… all I’m asking you for is a shot at something. Just something. I ain’t trying to end up in the 24/7. All I want is a path I can take. I could be focused on the Poon Palace. Poonin ain’t easy, but I do that AND I come out here and sacrifice every week for you and the fans. So I’m not asking for a miracle, Hawk. Just a shot at something. Just one shot.
(Hawk looks at TLA in the ring and looks around at the crowd for a moment, obviously thinking.)
Hurricane Hawk: …Ok. Well. TLA… you want a shot? I’m gonna give you a shot. At Wrath of the Dragon we will have our first Cash in the Vault qualifier. It will feature five men. Jax Walker. Adam Graves. Damon Diesel. Michael Bishop. And… you. You will be the fifth man in the match. This is your one shot.
(The crowd goes wild at the announcement. TLA raises his microphone to speak but Hawk cuts him off.)
Hurricane Hawk: Don’t blow this one.
(Hawk eyes TLA who looks like he was just slapped in the face by those words. After a moment TLA nods and drops his microphone. The camera fades as Hawk makes his exit.)

Gina Romano: The following contest is a tag team match scheduled for ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons revs up through the public announce speakers as the fans get on their feet to give the veteran his due respect with a positive reception as Terry walks out, only pausing briefly to acknowledge the crowd as he nods his head and pounds his chest before putting his game face on and beginning his march to the ring.)
Gina Romano: And one of their opponents…He hails from Detroit, Michigan….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SEVEN POUNDS…. HE’S THE ‘BARBARIC CARNIVORE’….TEEEERRRRRYYYY CHAAAAMMMMBBBBBEEEEERRRRSSSS!!!
Eve: Terry Chambers has come back and has one thing on his mind! Taking the Interwire Championship from the man he blames for his time on the shelf!
Deadprez: That’s a much harder feat than some would imagine! There’s a reason some wondered if Terry would ever come back at all!
(“Cliffs of Dover” by Eric Johnson as Jack Haze comes out on the stage hopping from side to side, clearly energized and ready for his upcoming matchup. He acknowledges the fans from each side with some high fives as he makes his way down to the ring.)
Gina Romano: And his partner for the evening…He hails from Santa Monica, California….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND ELEVEN POUNDS…. HE’S ‘THE ENLIGHTENED’….JAAAAAAAACCCCCCKKKKK HHHHAAAAAZZZZZEEEE!!!
Deadprez: The you got Jack Haze here who has just gotten tired of always being the victim of attacks! He believes himself to be the better man between himself and Cody, and he’s set on proving it.
(Ready for War” by Adelitas Way as Drake King walks out from beyond the curtains to a chorus of boos. He has the Interwire Championship draped over his left shoulder. Drake takes one look around at the jeering crowd. A smirk comes over him as he begins sauntering to the ring oozing with confidence. He waits on the outside as Jack and Terry await in the ring.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first…He hails from Charlotte, North Carolina….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY POUNDS…. REPRESENTING THE ROUND TABLE… HE’S ‘THE KING’…..DRRRRAAAKKKKEEEEEE KIIIIINNNNGGG!!!
Deadprez: and here he is! The Interwire Kang! The man who runs the Round Table! The future of this company! The—
Eve: The scum that has attempted to dismantle all of Showdown over recent times.
(“Lowlife” by Theory of a Deadman plays lastly as Cody Marshall comes stalking toward the ring where he meets up side by side with Drake King, who doesn’t really make eye contact with the big Texan.)
Gina Romano: And his tag team parter….He’s from Dallas, Texas…He weighs in at THREE HUNDRED AND FIVE POUNDS….He’s the ‘AMERICAN SNIPER’…..COOODDDDYYYY MAAAAAARRRRSSSSHHHHAALL!!!
Eve: And here’s Cody! He’s been nothing short of violent since returning and he’s got his eyes locked on Jack Haze! Let’s see how this plays out!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: I’d hazard to guess what we’re in for here tonight, DP! These two sides are definitely not what we should expect to see on a weekly basis, that much is for sure! Drake King the current Interwire Champion is starting things out! Drake looks over at Cody Marshall with a cocky smirk on his face.
Drake (off mic): Hey, you! Stick in the mud! Watch how it’s done! Maybe you’ll learn something! (Cody Marshall looked about to step through the ropes but the referee hurries over to ensure that doesn’t happen. Drake looks out at the crowd now.) SHUT UP!!!
Deadprez: You hear that, Eve, these people love Drake King! Let’s see what he and Cody manage to do against another dysfunctional unit in Jack Haze and Terry Chambers! It’s Jack Haze starting things off for his side! And both men looking to lock up! And a tie up by both men! Headlock applied by Jack Haze to Drake King! Jack already applying more pressure! Drake has a slight strength advantage and he’s trying to use it for what it’s worth here in the early going as he forces Jack Haze forward but Jack Haze has the strength and awareness of mind to keep the hold applied as he brings Drake King down! Jack keeps the advantage from a kneeling position! The referee right there to follow the action! Drake started out talking some smack, but so far hasn’t backed any of it up! But wait a minute here…Drake King pulling the hair of Jack Haze and the referee right there to admonish Drake as Jack keeps the hold applied! But Drake’s upper body strength advantage is still a factor as he begins to rise to his knees! Drake is still rising and this time he manages to get back to a standing vertical base where he forces himself and Jack forward into the ropes! Drake smartly grabs on to the ropes! Jack tries to pry Drake’s hands from the ropes but to no avail! The referee begins count! Jack releases reluctantly just before five! AND DRAKE KING WITH A CHEAP SHOT! A THUMB TO THE EYE BY DRAKE KING! Jack holding his hand at his eye that Drake King just poked, but is now looking to strike back but Drake King goes back to the ropes and ducks his head outside the ropes before Jack could connect and the referee permits it! Jack is now arguing with the referee as Drake King is slowly bringing his head back through the ropes with a shit eating grin on his face as he chuckles a bit as both men circle the ring once again! Now both ‘The King’ and ‘The Enlightened’ move in on each other for another tie up-AND A RAKE TO THE EYES BY DRAKE KING! THAT’S NOW FOLLOWED UP WITH REPEATED CHOPS TO THE CHEST OF JACK HAZE FOLLOWED BY A STIFF KNEE TO THE MIDSECTION OF JACK HAZE! Drake whips Jack to his corner where Cody Marshall awaits! Now Drake King grabs-AND A SLAP ON THE SHOULDER! A BLIND TAG BY CODY MARSHALL THAT TAKES DRAKE KING BY SURPRISE! DRAKE TURNS AROUND TO ASK WHAT THE HELL CODY MARSHALL IS DOING AS THE MUCH BIGGER MARSHALL STEPS IN TO THE RING THROUGH THE ROPES AND NOW GETS INTO FACE OF DRAKE KING WHO IS JUST STARING UPWARD AT THE TALLER MARSHALL WHO IS DARING DRAKE TO DO SOMETHING! DRAKE KING THINKS BETTER OF IT THOUGH AS HE STEPS THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE RING APRON! Cody turns to Jack Haze who’s still recovering! Cody executes a snapmare takedown of Jack Haze which is immediately followed up by a hard kick to the back of Jack! Jack yells out after that vicious kick by Cody! Cody now raining down with stiff forearm strikes to the back of the head of the downed Jack Haze who is hardly able to put up any resistance from this position and Cody knows it as he continues his assault! Cody now throws some force behind his knee shots to the body and the head of Jack Haze! Cody grabs up Jack and whips him to the ropes and a BACK ELBOW TO THE HEAD OF THE ONCOMING JACK HAZE WHO WAS COMING BACK! Cody Marshall shakes his head with a glare in his stare as he looks down at Jack Haze who’s in definite need to make a tag! Cody now tags Drake King back in! They seemed to have more of an understanding on that exchange of what the other is looking to accomplish in this match!
Eve: Indeed, DP! There’s this FreePerView coming up, I’m sure you’ve heard of it! These four men have at the very least bragging rights on the line as they look to find some kind of momentum going into Wrath of The Dragon, and this the one match they have the chance to do that! They’re not the most well-oiled units, but they’re going to try and make the most of it! Drake King with a rake to the back of Jack Haze who’s draped on the second rope. He’s yet to make a tag for his side whereas the team of Drake and Cody have both been in the match by far and Drake looks to be well rested as he goes back to work on Jack! Drake grabs up Jack Haze and whips him to the ropes but it’s reversed by Jack and now it’s Drake being sent to the ropes and a ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY JACK HAZE TO THE ONCOMING DRAKE KING! NO! KING DUCKS THE ROUNDHOUSE ATTEMPT! DRAKE SWINGS AT JACK HAZE WITH A CLOHESLINE! JACK DUCKS THE ATTEMPT! JACK HAS DRAKE FROM BEHIND AND PULLS HIMS UP! JACK HAZE LOOKING FOR THE BELLY TO BELLY BACK SUPEX! NO! DRAKE LANDS HIS FEET! ROUNDHOUSE KICK BY DRAKE KING MISSES IT’S TARGET!! JACK DUCKS! DRAKE RECOVERS QUICKLY AND WHIPS JACK TO THE ROPES! FLYING LARIAT CONNECTS COMING BACK BY JACK HAZE ONTO DRAKE KING! DON’T LET JACK HAZE GET STARTED! ONCE HE GETS STARTED IT’S ABSOLUTE HELL FOR THE OPPONENT! DRAKE KING IS BACK UP AND NOW ANOTHER SWINGING ROUNDHOUSE BY JACK HAZE CONNECTS THIS TIME ON DRAKE KING! DRAKE IS IN TROUBLE AS THE FANS CHEER JACK HAZE WHO TAGS IN TERRY CHAMBERS! GRABS UP DRAKE KING AND WHIPS HIM TO THE ROPES! AND A BIG BOOT COMING BACK THAT FLATTENS DRAKE KING! THESE TWO WILL BE GOING ONE ON ONE FOR THE INTERWIRE CHAMPIONSHIP AT WRATH OF THE DRAGON, BUT THIS COULD BE A GOOD PREVIEW OF THINGS TO COME! AND CHAMBERS HAS KING BACK UP AGAIN AND WHIPS HIM TO THE CORNER! NOW HERE COMES CHAMBERS WITH FULL HEAD OF STEAM! AND A BACK ELBOW BY KING THAT STAGGERS CHAMBERS BACK! KING FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG TO CHAMBERS FORCING HIS FACE INTO THE CANVAS! CHAMBERS TRYING TO RECOVER! KNEEL TO THE KING!! THE CURB STOMP DELIVERED BY DRAKE KING!! KING DROPS DOWN FOR THE COVER!!
Drake (off mic): Here’s your preview right here!
Deadprez: And Jack Haze comes to break it up in just of a nick of time! Drake King didn’t seem to take to kindly to that as he gets back to his feet giving Jack a look of disgust and then has some words! Jack retaliates with some side language by giving Drake King the middle finger to which the crowd genuinely enjoyed! Haze steps back outside the ropes and on to the apron again. Drake King continues to go to work on Terry Chambers in the corner now! Drake is now working on the legs of Terry! Terry now down to the seated position and Drake now puts a boot to the throat of Chambers! The referee right there to make the count! Drake lets up at the four count! Drake turns around with a satisfied expression on his face as he admires his handy work! He looks out at the crowd with the same expression as the fans let him know how they feel with the negative reaction they’re giving him! Drake mockingly bows to the crowd which elicits even more jeers! Chambers trying to use the ropes to bring himself back to a vertical base! But Drake is on top of things as he now goes to work with blows to the lower back with hard hitting forearms! Drake King has Terry Chambers back down to a knee! Drake smartly tags Cody Marshall back in! Jack Haze yelling out toward Terry shouting encouragement it would seem, anxiously looking to get back into this matchup! Now Terry being worked on by both Cody and Drake as they both beat down on him with devastating shots to the back and head! They both grab Terry back up! Then Terry is whipped to the ropes! Superkick by Drake King which sends Terry bouncing back against the ropes and then his momentum takes him forward again off the ropes right into the waiting hands of Cody Marshall! SIDEWALK SLAM BY CODY MARSHALL OF TERRY CHAMBERS AND ANOTHER COVER! THIS TIME BY MARSHALL!
Eve: And once again it’s Jack Haze to break it up! Now Cody Marshall gets up and starts shouting obscenities and Jack Haze has some words of his own right back as the referee has to restrain Jack Haze! While this is happening Cody Marshall grabs up Terry Chambers and tries to pick him up off the canvas but Terry comes to and escapes the grasp of Cody! He grabs Cody! NO WAY!! EXPLODER SUPLEX BY TERRY CHAMBERS TO CODY MARSHALL! MARSHALL SENT TUMBLING TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING! WHAT STRENGTH JUST EXHIBITED BY TERRY! WHERE DID HE FIND THE WHEREWITHAL TO PULL THAT OFF!!??? WOW!! Cody Marshall now trying to shake the cobwebs for a moment but-IT’S TOO LATE! CHAMBERS IS THERE GRAB CODY AGAIN! THIS TIME FROM BEHIND! NOW A GERMAN SUPLEX BY TERRY CHAMBERS! AND AGAIN CODY MARSHALL GOES FLYING! CODY TRYING TO RECOVER AGAIN! TERRY BACK UP WITH A DETERMINED AND INTENSE LOOK ON HIS FACE! HE LOOKS OVER TO DRAKE KING AND POINTS IN HIS DIRECTION AS HE GRABS THE STUMBLING CODY MARSHALL! ALL DRAKE DOES IS STAND OUTSIDE ON THE APRON SHOUTING AT TERRY BUT DOESN’T DARE ENTER THE RING! TERRY PULLS CODY MARSHALL IN! HE HAS HIM UP! LOOK AT THIS STRENGTH! HE HAS HIM UP! NOW HE’S BRINGING HIM DOWN TOWARD THAT CORNER TURNBUCKLE! TURNBUCKLE POWERBOMB! NOW HERE COMES KING! CLOTHESLINE ATTEMPT BY TERRY IS AVOIDED BY KING! KING DUCKED! KING OFF THE ROPES! FLYING FOREARM SMASH ONLY SLIGHTLY STAGGERS THE BIG MAN! KING OFF THE ROPES AGAIN TO GIVE IT ANOTHER GO!

DRAKE KING ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AS TERRY LOOKS FOR THE TAG AS JACK HAZE HAS HIS ARM EXTENDED OUT! HE WANTS IN THIS THING BAD! TERRY SEES THIS AND STARTS IN SLOWLY IN THAT DIRECTION BUT NOW CODY MARSHALL TACKLES TERRY FROM BEHIND WITH A CRUSHING BLOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! That will certainly take away a lot of the momentum that was just gained by Terry!
Deadprez: Terry reaching out! He’s just inches away but Cody Marshall grabs Terry back by his hair and now has a sleeper on Terry! Terry thrashing and flailing his body and arms trying to get out of this predicamate! Terry uses his momentum to send him and Cody backwards into the TURNBUCKLE! THAT WAS ENOUGH TO GET CODY TO RELEASE THE HOLD! HAVING HIS BACK JARRED RIGHT INTO THE CORNER HAD TO HURT! NOW DRAKE KING TRYING TO ATTACK FROM BEHIND BUT HERE COMES JACK HAZE! HE’S NOT GOING TO LET THAT SLIMY SNAKE DRAKE KING TO TRY AND STEAL THIS MATCH IN SOME FORM AS HE SEEMS TO ALWAYS DO! JACK HAZE IS DOMINATING DRAKE KING! HE’S SENDING REPEATED RIGHTS AT THE CURRENT INTERWIRE CHAMPION!

DRAKE KING BY JACK HAZE AND CODY MARSHALL BY TERRY CHAMBERS! THE CROWD IS ROARING THEIR APPROVAL! ACID DROP BY HAZE TO DRAKE KING AT THE SAME TIME TERRY CHAMBERS DELIVERS THE T-5! BOTH MEN JUST HIT THEIR RESPECTIVE FINISHING MANEUVERS AT THE SAME TIME! TERRY’S THE LEGAL MAN AND HE HOOKS THE LEG OF CODY MARSHALL AND THE CROWD IN ANTICIPATION COUNTS WITH THE REFEREE’S HAND SLAPPING THE CANVAS!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons begins to start up again as Terry Chambers rises up on his knees as does Jack Haze the same. Haze gets back to his vertical base first followed by Terry as the referee is there in the middle of each competitor to raise their hands simultaneously.)
Gina Romano: Here are your winners by way of PINFALL!…’The Enlightened’ JAAAACCCKKK HAAAAZZZZEEEEE AND ‘The Barbaric Carnivore’ TEEEEEERRRRRRYYYY CHAAAAMMMMBBBBBEEEEERRRRSSSS!!!
Eve: It didn’t look so promising during the week. DP! These two didn’t appear to want to team up with the other going into this. But with it being so close to Wrath of The Dragon, it’s clear each man wanted to walk away a winner, and that’s exactly what they got tonight!
Deadprez: That they were, Eve! Whereas we got the exact opposite as Drake King and Cody Marshall were only on the same page for a very short time, but once they lost that they begin to lose control of the match which led to the finish we just witnessed! Now both sides go into Wrath Of The Dragon going in the opposite direction momentum wise! We’ll just have to see how everything plays out! Congrats to the winners, Jack Haze and Terry Chambers!
(‘Natural’ continues as both Jack Haze and Terry Chambers are at the ramp a considerable distance from the other already as they understand the brief union is over. Jack makes his exit as Terry pauses to grab a microphone. Drake is barely stirring as Cody is still out.)
Terry Chambers: Hey King. You look at that drunk fool on the mat. See how laid out he is? You’re looking at your future, asshole. See you next week.
(Terry drops his microphone and walks up the ramp as Drake flops back down to the mat in pain.)

(Camera opens to find Kyra Phillips standing with a microphone.)
Kyra Phillips: Hello EAW fans! I am joined at this time by the man who will face Ahren Fournier inside Hell in a Cell next week, the EAW Champion, Malcolm Jones!
(MJ steps into frame, wearing the EAW Championship around his neck. He has a look of confidence and focus on his face.)
Kyra Phillips: Malcolm, next week you have your first title defense as a world champion and it’s against the man you took the title from. Are you feeling nervous at all?
Malcolm Jones: Nervous? Nah. Ever since the day I won this title, all I’ve felt has been vindication. Vindication in proving that all those dick eaters from back in the day were wrong about me and showing them all how they misjudged my talent. I went from dealing with Ryan Wilson and those fools on NEO to the EAW Championship. There’s no bigger jump you can take than that.
Kyra Phillips: how do you feel about your opponent next week? You may have taken the title from Ahren, but you never pinned him. Do you have what it takes to make that happen this time?
Malcolm Jones: Have what it takes? Bitch. I AM WHAT IT TAKES. I don’t see his fashion nova deal getting him this title back. Ahren Fournier is the definition of a flash in the pan. Forgettable as the Interwire Champion, forgettable as the EAW Champion. Both title I held after he did and both titles I’ve made far more important than he ever did. And that inflatable piece of silicone he got following him around around like a lost dog is a non-factor. That ho don’t want none of me. She gets involved in that match, I’ll teach her a lesson much worse than any cunt licker of a boyfriend she had ever taught her. That bitch talks about being abused? She don’t even know.
Kyra Phillips: How are you feeling about the Hell in a Cell stipulation itself? It’s said to be a match that shortens careers. Do you have any trepidation over entering a match that is this historically violent?
Malcolm Jones: The only thing I see about this match is the fact I won’t have any restrictions on me. I think of something to cause that top-knot and the asshole it’s connected to some pain, there’s not a damn thing that can stop me. All he can do is pray for survival, because when I’m done, that face of his won’t be the same anymore. I’ll take the thing he loves most, his physical appearance, and leave him looking like a damn mutant. And when the dust settles, there won’t be any question about it. And still your EAW Champion, Malcolm Jones.
Kyra Phillips: Well said, Malcolm. Thank you for your time.
(Malcolm walks off and leaves Kyra behind as the camera fades.)

(The camera cuts to Gina Romano standing in the ring with a microphone.)
Gina Romano: The following contest is our main event and it is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(“For Whom the Bell Tolls” by Metallica hits to cheers from the crowd.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first from Chicago, Illinois weighing in at 247 pounds… he is THE DREADKNIGHT… MICHAEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISHOPPPPPP!!!!
(Michael Bishop makes his way to the ring looking excited and ready to get back in the ring.)
Eve: I’m real excited to have Michael Bishop here tonight to face off against Chris Elite! This should be a great match! The man formerly known as The Revenant has gone through an extensive physical therapy program to make his recovery to be here tonight! He is facing off against the former World Heavyweight Champion Chris Elite and this will most definitely be a real test of his skills! And a good time to test them as well since we learned earlier tonight that he will be in the Cash in the Vault qualifier next week!
Deadprez: He better just hope he is ready to fight tonight first and foremost. This is EAW. This is no place for cripples. If you are injured get the hell out of that ring! I’m honestly not impressed by what I have seen so far since his return but as you all know I am a very open minded person. So prove me wrong buddy. If you can. And by that I mean you probably can’t.
(“Odee” by A Boogie hits to cheers from the crowd yet again.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent from Brooklyn, New York weighing in at 210 pounds he is MONEY MAKIN’ BHRIS… BHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRIS ELITE!!!!!
(Chris Elite makes his way out to the ring talking shit about Michael Bishop as he comes down the ramp. He steps in the ring looking ready to throw down but the referee keeps him back.)
Eve: Well both of these men appear to have their fans here tonight. It is not a popularity contest however, they will need to utilize all their wrestling skills and ability if they want to win this match! Chris had some heated words for Michael Bishop earlier this week!
Deadprez: This isn’t gonna be a match built on love! They about to rip each other to shreds!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: We are underway as the two men lock up in the ring. Elite pushes Bishop back into the corner as the two clash together before breaking apart and start exchanging blows. Elite grabs Bishop’s hair but Bishop retaliates with a Back Chop of his own. Elite falls back as Bishop grabs him by the head and slams him into a turnbuckle! Elite staggered as Bishop grabs him and slams Elite hard down onto the mat. Bishop off the ropes… he drops a knee across the face of Elite! No! Elite moved out of the way! Bishop back up quickly as Elite begins kicking away at his legs taking Bishop down! Bishop catches the leg… But Elite quickly counters with an Enzuigiri! Elite now rolls out onto the apron as Bishop slowly climbs back up to his feet… Elite with a Springboard into the ring… Springboard spinning back elbow connects!!! The cover!!!
Eve: Quick kickout by Michael Bishop! That’s that physical therapy program at work! Michael Bishop hasn’t lost his touch!
Deadprez: Umm I think we should be praising Chris for that maneuver but whatever. Elite now down on the ground locking Michael Bishop into a headlock. Some smart submission wrestling here trying to wear out Bishop so next time he will not have the energy to kick out so easily. Elite laying on top of Bishop here as he holds the head in his arms in an attempt to keep Bishop grounded. Bishop kicking hard with his feet as he tries to break free! Bishop kicking harder and harder as Chris falls off but still manages to keep the headlock applied… But Bishop kicks extra hard!!

Back up… Another! Back up… Another… Back up… Wait Elite caught Bishop’s arm this time! Bishop pulls the arm down dragging Elite into a Crossface! The audacity!!!
Eve: Elite screaming in pain here as he considers tapping out! No he is reaching for the ropes! This is a very dangerous submission hold here. Many wrestlers have fallen victim to this one! Michael Bishop just pulls the hold tighter but Chris Elite is thrashing around the ring trying to get to whatever rope he can! He flails around as Michael Bishop spins around rotating nearly in a circle as Elite drags him across! He got his boot on a rope! Elite with those long legs making it to the ropes! Bishop releases the hold as Elite immediately gets up and kicks Bishop hard in the gut! But Bishop lands on the mat and Elite begins talking shit over him.
Chris Elite: Oh you haven’t lost your touch? Then show me!
Eve: Michael Bishop with a kick lying prone on the ground kicking upwards and catching Chris Elite on the side of the head. Chris falls back as Bishop grabs his leg tripping him over! Bishop back up as Chris quickly returns to his feet but Bishop takes him down once more with a Sliding Dropkick to the knee! Elite falls forward as Bishop drops a hard elbow onto his back! Now Bishop stomping away at Elite in the ring… He backs up running off the ropes… Running Senton connects onto Chris’ back! NO! CHRIS MOVED OUT OF THE WAY!!! Chris back up as he staggers into the corner and Bishop gets back up holding his back! Chris charges in… BICYCLE KICK!!! MICHAEL BISHOP WITH A BICYCLE KICK JUST KICKED CHRIS’ HEAD OFF!!! THE COVER!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Deadprez: And Chris Elite kicks out!!! Michael Bishop immediately grabs the head of Elite twisting him into a Sleeper Hold! Bishop going to put Elite to sleep here tonight! Just like the fans who watch any of the other brands besides Showdown! Just kidding… Or am I? Elite slowly powering back up to his feet however he is refusing to be put down!!! Bishop shoves him out of the hold towards the ropes… but Elite leaps onto his hands and bounces off the ropes!!! He fires back towards Bishop who tries to move out of the way… Elite leaps over Bishop with a flip in the ring! Damn what an acrobat! Bishop whirls around trying to fire a hard right at Elite… but Elite goes low sliding down beneath the legs of Bishop! Elite charges in as he launches himself into Bishop spinning around with a Headscizzors… into an Arm Drag!!! Bishop thrown with immense velocity across the ring! But he rolls back up looking shocked as Elite is waiting for him to kick at his heels keeping him dancing like he is standing on hot coals out there in that ring!
Eve: Elite with a hard Spinning Kick into Michael Bishop’s gut sends him flying back into the corner! Elite grabs his arm and whips him across the ring… No! Bishop standing his ground! Using his strength to resist Chris Elite! He whips Chris across the ring into the ropes… Elite flips over onto the turnbuckle… off the top… MOONSAULT FROM CHRIS ELITE CONNECTS TO MICHAEL BISHOP!!! IT’S OVAH!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOO!!!!!
Deadprez: Kickout!!! I am shook! Elite pulls Bishop back up… Bishop shoves Elite back against the ropes… Elite jumps sideways in between the ropes and lands on the apron… He leaps up to the top rope!

ELITE DRIVEN INTO THE CANVAS HARD!!! Elite grimacing in pain as he holds his back and slowly tries to get back up. Bishop now looking furious as Elite struggles to his feet in the corner… Bishop with a Running Shoulder Thrust as he gores Elite hard into the turnbuckle!!! Bishop stretches for a second. He has to keep up that physical therapy routine after all… Then he charges in again! But he may have waited too long!!! Chris Elite with a Drop Toe Hold sending Bishop face first into the turnbuckle!!! Bishop may have been knocked out cold here! Elite helps Bishop up… But Bishop immediately reaches under Chris’s arms goring him across the ring into the turnbuckle once more! Elite tries to turn around to climb out of the way… But Bishop yanks his leg out back down onto the mat… Bishop with a Superkick to the face of Elite!!!
Deadprez: Bishop grabs Elite from behind… GERMAN SUPLEX!! But he holds on! German Suplex Again! German Suplex one final time! No wait he just did a fourth one! That’s all for now as both men lie on the mat looking equal parts exhausted and in pain. They both slowly get back up… Bishop with a Clothesline dropping Chris! Chris turned inside out as he flips across the ring and pulls himself up in the corner before dropping to one knee… HELLRAISER CONNECTS!!! THE RUNNING KNEE STRIKE!!! MICHAEL BISHOP COVERS CHRIS ELITE!!!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Eve: Kickout by Chris Elite! He just barely got the shoulder up in time! Bishop standing up with an angry look on his face! He looks as angry as a dangerous man can possibly look! He rolls down his knee pad as he begins bashing his knee cap into the skull of Elite! Elite looks like he is seeing stars as his mouth is wide open and he is gazing out into nothingness. Bishop off the ropes… Knee Strike to the face of Elite!! HELLRAISER AGAIN!!! NO! Chris Elite moved out of the way! Bishop across the ring… Elite charges in with a Running Knee of his own catching Michael Bishop in the gut! The former Revenant keels over in pain grabbing the ropes behind himself to pull back up!

Elite beats his chest as the crowd is on their feet rooting him on! He connects with a Standing Shooting Star Press onto Michael Bishop!!! But Bishop moves out of the way! Yet somehow Elite is able to land on his feet! Bishop into the corner as Elite connects with a Running Headbutt! Elite dazed from that blow as I am sure Bishop was as well!!
Deadprez: Elite now going in on Bishop!!! Elite with rights and lefts both with his fists and feet as Bishop is completely unable to block them! He is getting owned! A right! A left! DOWN GOES BISHOP! DOWN GOES BISHOP! BAH GAWD ALMIGHTY HE JUST GOT KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT!!! CHRIS ELITE GOES FOR THE COVER!!!
Eve: MICHAEL BISHOP KICKS OUT WITH AUTHORITY!!! He storms back up to his feet as he begins lighting up Chris Elite back up against the ropes! Elite’s eyes wide now in shock as Michael Bishop smirks at him arrogantly while at the very same time landing blow after blow after blow! Elite tries to use the ropes to pull himself away but Bishop just grabs him under the arms… Belly to Belly Suplex connects!!! Elite is tossed across the ring like a pile of trash landing hard on his back. Bishop now lurking behind his opponent as Elite struggles to get back up… He grabs him from behind… He wraps his limbs around Chris Elite’s body. You can actually pinpoint the exact moment that Chris Elite knew that he was trapped in the spider’s web carefully crafted here tonight by Michael Bishop! As Bishop pulled Elite down into the Triangle Choke he began to ponder upon what had led him to this moment. But he could not simply think about that for too long for he had something far more pressing to think about. That of course being that he needed to find a way out of this submission hold. And quickly.
Deadprez: I have no idea how you know what Chris Elite is thinking Eve but then again I don’t understand how women think. Nor do I want to! Shudders! However, one thing that Chris Elite would like to understand is how to get out of this submission hold. He seems entirely trapped and I am not quite sure if he will find a way out of it at this time. Wait nevermind he got his hand on the ropes.
Eve: No he didn’t! His fingers slipped off! Elite is fading! ELITE IS FADING! WAIT WHAT THE HELL?!?!?
(Big Mike is shown climbing into the ring with a baseball bat.)
Deadprez: Get this thug out of here! OUT! OUT! OUT!
Eve: Michael Bishop back up now as he yells and screams at Big Mike to leave. Big Mike hands over the baseball bat with no issue and leaves.
Deadprez: Well at least he saw reason…
Eve: BUT MICHAEL BISHOP DID NOT SEE CHRIS ELITE!!! FROM BEHIND THE ROLLUP!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! THRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!!
Deadprez: NO! Michael Bishop somehow kicked out! Both men back up and Bishop looks pissed! He should have won this thing with that Triangle Choke! Bishop charges in and kicks Elite in the gut! He lifts Chris up above his head… THE EXECUTIONER!!! IT CONNECTS!!!
Eve: NO IT DOESN’T CONNECT! CHRIS ELITE FLIPS OFF BEHIND MICHAEL BISHOP! BISHOP TURNS AROUND…
Deadprez: BOX OFFICE SMASH CONNECTS!!! IT’S OVAH! THE COVAH!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! THREEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… BHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRIS ELIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITEEE!!!
(“Odee” by A Boogie hits as Chris Elite is shown hugging Big Mike and his baseball bat in the ring to celebrate.)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… CHRIS ELITE!!!!
Eve: Congratulations to Chris Elite on a big win here tonight!
Deadprez: And now we look to— CAGE! CAGE! CAGE JUST ATTACKED CHRIS ELITE FROM BEHIND WITH THE BASEBALL BAT FROM EARLIER! HE JUST SMASHED HIM FROM BEHIND AND ELITE DROPPED LIKE DEAD WEIGHT! NOW HERE COMES BIG MIKE! BUT CAGE WITH THE BASEBALL BAT RIGHT ACROSS HIS JAW! CAGE NOW TAKES THE BAT AND RAISES IT OVER HIS HEAD! DRIVING THE BAT OVER AND OVER AGAIN INTO CHRIS ELITE!
(Cage drops the bat, sliding to the outside and grabbing a microphone.)
Cage: …You demanded a match with me? I made my own demand. I’m gonna kick your ass at Wrath of the Dragon next week… and the winner… will be the man who fights for the EAW Championship at Pain for Pride.
(Cage drops the microphone as he stares at his handiwork inside the ring, a crazed look on his face.)
Eve: Cage… Cage has laid waste to Chris Elite and Big Mike and dropped a bomb on everyone! The winner of his match with Chris Elite will go on to face the EAW Champion at Pain for Pride! I… I wish we could unpack this but we are out of time! Tune in next week for Wrath of the Dragon!
