(EAW intro plays.)
(PRE RECORDED — LAST WEEK ON SHOWDOWN.)
(It goes to General Manager, Ryan Wilson, who has had a bit of time to cool down after Ronan Malosi fucked up his celebration. Perhaps, assuring that Ronan would never be apart of Showdown brightened up his mood. Was it a bit harsh of a consequence to go with? Of course, but Ronan would also serve as an example for anyone who dares to attest to any of the claims that Ryan made going into this season and at some point towards the end of last season. Now, Ryan is packing up some of his belongings before heading out of the EAW Performance Center.)
???: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT SHIT, RYAN??!??!
(Ryan Wilson sighs as he looks at the same man, who he cost a contract, Ronan Malosi. By the looks of things, Ronan has officially gotten the pepper spray from out of his eyes that Ryan had sprayed on him to have Cage capitalized during the Steel Cage match.)
Ryan Wilson: I’m going to need you to relax, Ronan.
Ronan Malosi: You screwed me out of a contract and you’re telling me to relax?!?!?
Ryan Wilson: It was something that you weren’t anticipating, but imagine the position that I was in.
Ronan Malosi: It was a miscalculation from me, Ryan. Did you think that I really wanted to connect with a running big boot to your face?
(Ryan Wilson takes some time to process what Ronan Malosi is trying to tell him.)
Ronan Malosi: I didn’t want beef with you, Ryan. I didn’t want to to get off on the wrong foot. If anything, I wanted to work with you because I would love nothing more than to be part of the Showdown roster, which brings me here.
(Ronan Malosi gets on his knees.)
Ryan Wilson: I don’t roll like that, Ronan.
Ronan Malosi: :skip: Get your mind out of the gutter, Ryan. All I was gonna do was this: GIVE ME ANOTHER CHANCE, RYAN!
(Ryan Wilson sighs.)
Ryan Wilson: You’ve really gotten on my bad side due to your little scuffle with Cage earlier tonight and perhaps, I WAS being a bit harsh with making that stipulation and then, costing you the match. I guess, I could give you another chance.
Ronan Malosi: :blessed: :blessed: :blessed:
Ryan Wilson: But, you can’t expect me to go easy on you, Ronan.
Ronan Malosi: I don’t expect you to go easy on me. I’m the toughest man in this company. I can take anyone.
Ryan Wilson: Even a man who was once known as the “Best in the World?”
Ronan Malosi: Ryan, I’m the Best in the World. There is no man or woman who compares to me.
Ryan Wilson: Okay, if you’re still determined to get a Showdown contract, I may consider it if you manage to defeat your next opponent…XAVIER WILLIAMS.
Ronan Malosi: I thought you said that you were going to give me a tough opponent?
Ryan Wilson: Xavier Williams is a Hall of Famer, Ronan.
Ronan Malosi: I’m a future Hall of Famer, Ryan. Xavier has NOTHING on me. I can’t wait to beat his old and flabby ass and get myself a Showdown contract. :whew: :whew: :whew: Thank you for this opportunity, Ryan! You won’t be disappointed!
(Ronan Malosi walks away from Ryan Wilson, feeling happy as Ryan shakes his head.)
Ryan Wilson: We’ll see about that, Ronan…
(Ryan Wilson walks out the doors of the EAW Performance Center as the scene fades elsewhere.)
(RECAP: We get a recap from last week’s Showdown. We open the show with General Manager Ryan Wilson’s celebration where he announces a couple matches for Midsummer Massacre. When he seems to be through with that, Ronan Malosi, makes his dissatisfaction for facing Cage well known. He talks his shit, but fails to realize Cage right behind him. Cage and Ronan brawl as it heads towards the ring. Ronan goes for a big boot, but Cage ducks and Ronan gets Ryan who falls into the cake. Pissed off, Ryan adds the stipulation that if Ronan loses, he’s BANNED from Showdown.)
(RECAP: Consuela Rose Ava sees Ryan Wilson in his office to talk about her next title defense, but Ryan allows her to pick her opponent. Sierra Bradford enters the scene and Consuela announces that Sierra will be her opponent for Midsummer Massacre. Sierra seems caught off guard, but more than ready for the challenge.)
(RECAP: Jack Ripley is seen being interviewed by Kyra Phillips as Jamie O’Hara overhears the interview. The two men exchange some words. It pans forward to Jack facing Dr. Bethany Blue. The match is competitive. At one point in the match, the referee gets knocked down and that’s where the fuckery occurs. Jake Smith manages to come out and stand on the apron, showing Bethany the twelve dollars that he won via a bet with Bronson. Bethany is pissed, but Bronson stabs her with a syringe, giving Jack the victory over the Doc.)
(We pan forward to the main event with Cage taking on Ronan Malosi. The match is brutal and competitive as we head towards Ronan climbing out of the Cage, but Ryan Wilson pepper sprays Ronan as that allows Cage enough time to get up there and connect with Mercy Rule and get the victory.)
(“Uncontainable” by Set It Off plays, cueing the music for Saturday Night Showdown. The scene pans to the Performance Center in Newark, New Jersey. We have the socially distanced crowd screaming out of their minds.)
Gavin Kirkland: WE ARE ONE WEEK AWAY FROM MIDSUMMER MASSACRE! WELCOME TO SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN, I AM GAVIN KIRKLAND!
Eve: I am your lead commentator, Eve and the notable man next to me is Deadprez! We already have four matches on the card and we’re hoping that more matches get announced tonight!
Deadprez: We are planning to put all the other brands to shame by giving you the best wrestling in the planet at Midsummer Massacre. It’s the same energy tonight as we got a high profile tag team match as the number one contenders for the Answers World Champion and Interwire Champion, Jack Ripley and Sierra Bradford take on James Ranger and Lucas Johnson!
Eve: Not only that, but we got a high profile main event as Cage takes on Dr. Bethany Blue and with Lethal Consequences and Jake Smith taking over commentary, things should be interesting!
(“Walking the Wire” by Imagine Dragons blasts through the speakers as Alexis Chambers comes out. Dr. Bethany Blue is left in the back as she prepares for her main event match against Cage. Alexis has her hands behind her back as she skips her way down the ramp and heads towards the ring.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME…ALEXIS CHAMBERS!!!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Here comes the hottest Chambers in this company who looks to defeat Bronson Daniels next weekend at Midsummer Massacre and become New Breed Champion!
Eve: She was given this opportunity after she defeated Bronson Daniels on the season premiere of Showdown! That, plus, the tensions between the Maidens of Malpractice and The Mile-High Club, this is gonna be one of the most heated matches of the card.
Deadprez: Bronson Daniels has a tough battle ahead of him. It’s difficult to keep this young woman down.
(“Walking the Wire” dies down as Alexis Chambers is seen in the ring with a microphone in her hand. The crowd is giving her a mixed reception, but she could care less about it.)
Alexis Chambers: FUCK THE MILE-HIGH CLUB!!!!!
(The crowd gives a positive reception because of their issues with Jake Smith and Bronson Daniels.)
Alexis Chambers: Damn, that felt fucking good to get off my chest, but it’s going to feel even better once I take that New Breed Championship off Bronson Daniels’ joint infested hands and give everyone a champion that’s not a giant pussy or associates himself with a giant fucking cuck in Jake Smith. At first, I really didn’t care for Bronson Daniels. I was aware that he was Jake’s best friend that he smokes weed with, but I never gave it a second thought, but overhearing their conversation at Pain for Pride, it should have shocked me to see that someone like Bronson would ENCOURAGE Jake as he strung me and Bethany along for his own satisfaction and what was the motivation for all of that. Twelve fucking dollars? I’m sorry, but do me and Bethany look like we’re worth twelve dollars? All of this shit began because you were in desperate need for twelve dollars? If this doesn’t prove that men are complete imbeciles, then, I don’t know what will. I’m in disbelief that all of this was for a wad of cash for weed or whatever the hell that Bronson and Jake have like we’re not professional wrestlers and already get money. :skip:
Alexis Chambers: Bronson wants to cry that he has no idea why he’s in this little situation with me, Bethany and Jake, but anyone that associates themselves with that piece of shit is an enemy of the Maidens of Malpractice. Besides, it should teach him twice before he participates in some “locker room talk” and bet money at the expense of playing with the hearts of two women. I fucking hope that losing those twelve dollars was worth it for Bronson because —
(“Nightcrawler” by Travis Scott featuring Swae Lee & Chief Keef cuts off Alexis Chambers in the middle of her promo. Alexis forms a smile on her face and shakes her head, not liking being interrupted. The New Breed Champion himself, Bronson Daniels, walks out with the title over his left shoulder.)
Gavin Kirkland: It seems like Bronson Daniels has had enough with Alexis Chambers speaking.
Eve: The New Breed Champion believes that Alexis shouldn’t be holding any hatred towards him. Alexis believes that he was someone that encouraged Jake Smith to play with her and Bethany’s heart.
(“Nightcrawler” dies down as Bronson Daniels stands across from Alexis Chambers in the ring. Bronson has a microphone in his hand as the two Elitists competing for the New Breed Championship look at each other. Alexis holds a giant glare as Bronson has a calm demeanor.)
Bronson Daniels: Alexis, I am here to speak in behalf of the crowd, but…SHUT THE FUCK UP!
(A mixed reception of the crowd is heard. At this point, it seems like the crowd is totally divided on who to root for. There’s people who are annoyed with Alexis Chambers, but others feel for her and what she’s been put through. Bronson also has some likable personality and people feed into that as well.)
Bronson Daniels: Alexis, I am going to need you to breathe. I am going to need you to chill for one of the first times in your life. I fully believe that your anger is misplaced because why? Me and Jake made a harmless bet that got out of hand? Do you not realize how stupid you sound? You’re getting phased over a TWELVE DOLLAR bet. If the bet meant anything, I would have bet more money, but it didn’t. If anything, your dumb ass should have known better than not to get suckered in by Jake. I know Jake. I know how he operates. I know when he’s being genuine and I know when he’s being manipulative and throughout his entire association with you, he was being manipulative. You wanted to believe that you can change Jake, but instead, you left with your heartbroken. You let him play with your heart. You allowed yourself to betray your morals by getting into a fight with Bethany…over a guy? :mjlol: You sent the entire women’s division like ten years because of your need to get the guy. If the worst possible scenario comes and you manage to win this New Breed Championship, you’re basically shitting on the prestige of this championship because we don’t need a woman, who degraded herself at PAIN FOR PRIDE out of all places, by competing in the most belittling matches at the history of the event. Let me remind you that at the same show, we saw Minerva and Raven Roberts main evented. You get some random VIXENS match on the card before the actual WOMEN, go out there and steal the fucking show. I’m supposed to think that you pose as some kind of threat to my title? Nah, I don’t buy that shit.
Alexis Chambers: Go ahead, drag me for competing in a mud wrestling match, Bronson. Drag me for somehow showing the most amount of skin that anyone at Pain for Pride has ever shown, but I have a bigger set of balls than you can ever dream about having. In my defense, I think I have more guts than anyone on this roster. To allow myself to be placed in that kind of situation that I was in, I proved that there was nothing I wouldn’t do in order to win the match and get what I want. At the moment, I WANT that New Breed Championship and to cut your reign short. Yeah, this match isn’t a mud wrestling match, but I am going to enjoy every second of this match. At Midsummer Massacre, I am going to humiliate you in front of this socially distanced crowd. I am going to cut those stupid dreadlocks from your head and shove them in your mouth. I am going to use that ugly face of yours and wipe the blood off the canvas. Maybe, you will think twice before inserting yourself in this little situation with me, Bethany and Jake. Next time, I hope that you’re not such a dumbass and you have the brain to tell your buddies the right and wrong thing to do. Maybe, it will serve you right not to treat me as some sort of threat to your championship reign. I don’t think that many people expected me to defeat you a few weeks ago. Not many people expected me to get one over on you, but people shouldn’t be shocked once I become New Breed Champion. Hell, I would be a better champion than you can ever dream of being, Bronson.
Bronson Daniels: I find that difficult to believe, Alexis. I’ve surpassed you in every way possible. I showed up after you and I already have a championship to my name. You haven’t done dogshit since you arrived in the company at the beginning of the year. You haven’t done anything noteworthy until that mud wrestling match. It’s sad because people won’t be talking about the technical masterpiece of the match. Instead, men will be using that match for other reasons because it’s most they’ll see female Elitists without their clothes. I hope that it fulfills their lesbian fetish because I can assure you that Midsummer Massacre won’t be like that whatsoever. I am going to fuck you up, Alexis, but it won’t be in the way that you’re used too —
Deadprez: ALEXIS CHAMBERS THROWS A PUNCH TO BRONSON DANIELS OUT OF NOWHERE! BRONSON IS TAKEN TO THE GROUND, BUT ALEXIS BEGINS TO POUNCE ON BRONSON BEFORE NAILING HIM WITH A BUNCH OF LEFT AND RIGHT PUNCHES!
Gavin Kirkland: Bronson is trying to push Alexis away from him as he manages to do that, but Alexis makes sure that Bronson stays down — FOH — NO! Bronson manages to duck the shining wizard as Alexis stumbles forward, but Bronson manages to get her by her hair before slamming her against the canvas! Alexis is slowly getting to her knees as Bronson rushes towards her — BITCH, I KNOCKED YOUR HEAD OFF!!!!
Eve: But, Alexis Chambers manages to get Bronson Daniels by his arm before connecting with a hip toss! Alexis takes a couple of steps back before running towards him — LEXI LOCK — the octopus hold on the New Breed Champion! It seems like the champion is stuck at the moment!
Deadprez: Bronson is trying not to fall down, but Alexis has some hold towards him as he slowly gets to his knees! The champion is fading! The champion is fading!
(Realizing that Bronson Daniels is passed out, Alexis Chambers releases the Lexi Lock as she sees that New Breed Champion that was dropped after she punched Bronson. She picks up the title before raising it high in the air. She gets to one knee and gets Bronson by his dreadlocks.)
Alexis Chambers (off-mic): THIS IS MINE, BRONSON! MY TIME! MY MOMENT! MY TITLE! THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT AFTER MIDSUMMER MASSACRE!
(Alexis Chambers drops Bronson Daniels as well as the New Breed Championship. “Walking the Wire” plays once again as Alexis looks at a down Bronson before leaving the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: What a statement by Alexis Chambers. Could what we saw in the ring be foreshadowing for what we could expect at Midsummer Massacre?
Eve: I’m not sure, but if I was Bronson Daniels, I would probably consider Alexis as some sort of threat! She’s not planning to hold back at anything!
Deadprez: We’ll be right back after this commercial break! Stay tuned!
(Commercial for Midsummer Massacre. Watch Bronson Daniels defend his New Breed Championship against Alexis Chambers.)
(Showdown returns from commercial break with Gina Romano in the middle of the ring.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen the following Tag Team contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!
Gina Romano: The following contest is set for one fall! Introducing first, from Las Vegas, Nevada!!! Weighing in at 250lbs!! PRINCE WEALTHY!!!! MMAXXXXWEELLLLLLL!!!!!!
(“Slide” by Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean, Migos hits, as Maxwell walks out on to the stage as he peers over the small crowd as he pumps himself up as he makes his way down the ramp. Maxwell then walks up the steps as he moves through the ropes as stops in the middle of the ring and poses with arms out wide as there is a mix reaction of boos and chants of “loser”.)
Gavin Kirkland: Maxwell has momentum on his side who had a crushing victory against TNT last week.
Deadprez: Do we have news on the guy since then?
Gavin Kirkland: I don’t care to be honest.
Gina Romano: AAAAAAND HIS TAG TEAM PARTNER…
( “If Ya Smell”’ by Adam Massacre plays over the PA system as the People’s Champion is making his way to the ring. )
Bella Braxton: From Jacksonville, Florida! Weighing in at 260 pounds. He is the Big Bhoogie Champion… THEEEEE WOOOGIEEEEMAAAAAAAN!!!’’
Gavin Kirkland: Here comes the Champ.
Deadprez: He looks ready for a scrap! He should get a good one against Shaker Jones and Rylan Brees.
(“I Love It Loud (Wolf Howl Intro”) by Kiss as Shaker Jones makes his way to the ring looking a little bored but ready for battle. )
Bella Braxton: And their opponents! Introduction first! From Boston, Massachusetts! Weighing in at 238 pounds; The Canadian Wolf! SHAKERRRR JOOOOOOOOONES!!!
Gavin Kirkland: How can he call himself a Canadian Wolf when he bills himself from Boston? Make up your mind man!
Deadprez: Regardless, did you notice his attitude? It’s almost like he doesn’t want to be around.
Gavin Kirkland: Foreshadowing much?
Deadprez: For his partner, let’s hope not.
(“Man on Fire” by Oh The Larceny plays over the PA system now as Raylan walks to the ring quickly, with purpose and immediately upon entering the ring, he begins climbing the turnbuckles. He makes sure to hit all four corners, Raylan raises his red-gloved right fist in the air at the top of each turnbuckle. )
Gina Romano: From Lexington, Kentucky! Weighing in at 230 pounds; He is The Alpha Assassin… RAYLAAAAAN BREEEEEEEEES!!!!
Deadprez: Now here comes a guy who seems ready to fight, mind and body!
Gavin Kirkland:He looks more interested than Shaker that’s for sure!
(Ding! Ding! Ding! )
Eve: Tag Team Action Is On The Way Folks! Shaker versus Maxwell to start off the hostilities while Rylan Brees and Woogiemanl are on the outside looking in. Lock up in the center of the ring followed by a headlock and an Irish Whip, Shaker ducks a clothesline but then gets a knee to the gut and flips on his back Maxwell picks Shaker up, goes to the ropes. Maxwell telegraphs a suplex and Shaker leaps over trying for a roll-up but Maxwell is smart and goes to a knee starting to throw haymakers on his opponent! Shaker tries to roll Maxwell into a pin again but he counters and tries to go for a submission move early on which Shaker wiggles quickly out of and goes back to his feet! Maxwell goes to him but gets a thumb to the eyes which gets a warning by the official that is ignored as he goes to tag in his partner for the night! Rylan now on the attack! He lunges at Maxwell who counters him with a hip toss sending the big man down! Maxwell keeps a hold of Rylan’s arm twisting it before moving to tag in the Woogieman!
Eve: Woogie comes in and sends a kick to the midsection as Maxwell raises Rylan’s arm for easy access! Woogie follows with a series of quick fists to the face of Rylan who stumbles backwards under the assault! Woogie sends Brees to the ropes and knocks him down with a clothesline! Woogieman is in control! He grabs a hold of Brees’ head moving to a corner but no wait Rylan rakes the eyes of Woogie and also gets warned by the official who once more gets the ignored treatment! Brees is not gonna waste such an opportunity as he goes to strike Woogie with closed fist punches a few times and then Irish Whips him into the ropes! Woogie goes back and COUNTERS WITH A SWINGING NECKBREAKER!! Woogie with a cover!!
Official: One! Two!!
Gavin Kirkland: Kick out by Rylan Brees!!
Deadprez: Strong set of offence by Woogie!
Eve: The Big Bhoogie Bhampion maneuvers Brees into his corner and tags in Maxwell after shoving Rylan’s face into Prince Wealthy’s boot which he held against the top rope. Maxwell tries to suplex Rylan but he forces him to his own corner which allows Shaker to tag himself in! The Canadian Wolf has his turn in throwing fists at the face of his opponent while his partner goes outside the ring. Shaker with an Irish whip on Maxwell who counters with a sleeper hold!! But in comes Rylan quickly trying to bail Jones out of this situation but he gets a boot to the gut for his efforts! Maxwell grabs both men by the head and COLLIDES THEM WITH EACH OTHER!! Rylan rolls out of the ring while Maxwell grabs a hold of Shaker and lifts him into a beautiful snap suplex! Perfectly executed! He hooks the leg!!
Official: One! Two!!
Gavin Kirkland: Shaker kicks out!!
Eve: Maxwell wastes no time on retaining control over his opponent as they both get up, he twists the arm of Jones and moves over to his corner tagging in Woogie who throws in a series of punches to the ribs of the former Big Bhaker Bhampion which makes you wonder now that the two are on the same brand will they end up facing each other in singles competition? Maxwell sneaks in an uppercut to Shaker before going on the apron. Woogie grabs Shaker in a headlock that is reversed by Jones and moves to tag in Rylan who goes into a series of kicks in the corner while Shaker is holding Woogie in a headlock still! Woogie gets moved to the center of the ring, punched in the face by Rylan before getting Whipped and he reverses it! Woogie goes with some strikes of his own before whipping Ryla-no! Brees reverses the Irish whip! Woogie to the ropes he gets clocked behind the head by Shaker BUT HE TURNS AROUND AND SMACKS JONES IN THE MOUTH IN RETALIATION!!
Deadprez: Jones backs down as Rylan tries to attack Woogie from behind but he gets fists instead! Woogie tries to whip Rylan to the ropes again countered, Woogie bouce-NO he ends up on the outside of the ring!! Jones lowered the top rope and here he goes attacking Woogie behind the official’s back who is busy containing Maxwell! Shaker takes advantage of the situation with GIVE’EM THE BOOT!! The Bicycle Kick on Woogieman before tossing him back in the ring!! The official didn’t see a thing! Brees in the ring kicks Woogie a few times on the upper back while the Champion is down before picking him up and throwing a fist to his face as Woogie leans against the ropes. A few other fists to the face by Brees who seems on a mission to want and hurt the man before him as he then tosses him into a corner! Woogie walks back towards Rylan who tries a clothesline —
Eve: BUT WOOGIE COUNTERS! HE WANTS TO GO FOR THE BOTTOM NOT RYLAN ELBOWS HIM TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WHICH BREAKS THE ATTEMPT AT HIS FINISHING MOVE!! Brees goes for a kick to the midsection of Woogie who grabs Rylan’s leg and forces him to the ground! Wait a minute, what is Woogie doing? Is he setting Rylan up for… He does! A sharpshooter! Rylan is looking in a world of pain reaching his hand towards Shaker Jones pleading for help but Shaker doesn’t look interested at all in going in to bail his partner out! Rylan looks like he is about to tap but he powers his way to the ropes which forces Woogie to break his submission maneuver! Referee asks him to break the move up which he does before the official could begin a count as he turns to look at Rylan who in turn looks up to Shaker who actually looks the other way!
Gavin Kirkland: What is up with Jones?
Eve: He seems disconnected from the match for some unknown reason. Rylan gets up, holding his back and talks to Shaker, extending a hand looking to tag himself out but Jones moves out of the way! Woogie is behind Rylan poised for an attack the moment he turns around! This sounds like big trouble for the team of Brees and Jones!
Gavin Kirkland: All Because of Shaker!! LOOK!!
Deadprez: He Is Actually Leaving!!!!!
Eve: Incredible! Shaker Jones is leaving the match!!! There is nothing Brees can do besides cursing him a storm which he does finishing by saying he’ll do the match by himself BUT WOOGIE IS READY AND DRILLS HIM DOWN WITH A SPINEBUSTER!!! THE SPINEBUSTER BY THE CHAMPION!!! DOWN GOES BREES! Woogieman positions himself for the People’s Elbow! He bounces from ropes to ropes!
Gavin Kirkland: Maxwell tagged himself in and went to the top turnbuckle!!
Deadprez: What is he doing??
Eve: The People’s Elbow Lands Perfectly and right after THE PRIVATE JET LANDING FROM MAXWELL! THE SHOOTING STAR PRESS RIGHT AFTER THE ELBOW CONNECTS! Rylan is out of it as Maxwell goes to try and finish things with the Wristwatch Lock! The Arm-trap crossface is locked in tight and Brees can’t do a thing but tap! This Match Is OVER!!!
( Ding! Ding! Ding! )
( “Slide” by Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean, Migos hits, as Maxwell gets his arm raised in victory along with Woogie’s by the official )
Gina Romano: The winners of this bout the team of Maxwell and Woogieman!!!
Gavin: What kind of bull ending was that??
Deadprez: No idea! Who expected Shaker would walk out on the match like this? Great finish by Maxwell and Woogieman however! Perhaps the start of a new tag team? Who knows!
(The scene pans to Mr. 24/7 himself, Jon Kelton lacing up his boots before his match against Ryan Wilson later tonight. Jon seems to be quite focused, almost like nothing can distract him and take his eyes off the prize. Defeating Ryan would assure Jon that Ryan shouldn’t regret drafting him onto Showdown. He believes that he’s a motherfucking star and no one can change his mind.)
???: Ready for your match tonight?
(Jon Kelton looks up to find Justin Windgate with his back pressed against one of the lockers.)
Jon Kelton: Why wouldn’t I be? It’s Ryan Wilson.
Justin Windgate: Good point, but Ryan Wilson is a snake when he needs to be.
Jon Kelton: As a competitor, I don’t think that Ryan Wilson is going to be anything to stress about, but he’s the General Manager. He could go out there and change the stipulation of the match or even the result to what he desires it to be, but I didn’t need for you to tell me that, Justin. Ryan Wilson doesn’t know what it truly feels to be a winner. He hasn’t accomplished one single thing in the few years that he’s been in EAW. The biggest accomplishment was OUTSIDE the wrestling ring. The only thing that he has over us is being General Manager, but that doesn’t command respect. Not like me, whenever I step into the room, you are in the presence of a motherfucking star. You are looking at greatness. I won the most challenging match of Day Two at Pain for Pride. I outlasted a series of hungry Elitists and was the last man standing. Going into this season, I can assure you that I will be a champion and I will reclaim my spot as the future of this company — something that I was supposed to be a long time ago.
Justin Windgate: More power to you, Jon. I am not going to reject the idea of another so-called “old head” from reclaiming the success that they once had, but I’m quite curious — have you REALLY learned from the past? Despite winning the 24/7 contract, what is going to prevent you from making those same mistakes that you did in the past?
Jon Kelton: Just like with you, Justin. I’m a lot more committed than before. Despite being a pothead, you didn’t have Ryan Wilson, out of all people, judge you on whether you’re committed enough to be part of Showdown. Ryan Wilson had the nerve to ask me that question and it pissed me off a bit. My commitment shouldn’t be a question for anyone. It shouldn’t be questioned to begin with. I am the most committed that I have ever been. I am one of the Elitists who gave Showdown the very first Match of the Week of the season! Hell, I just made Showdown into one of the most watched brands by having me in the main event! Jon Kelton equals ratings, Justin.
Justin Windgate: It seems like winning at Pain for Pride increased your confidence, but I think it’s time to take it down a notch. I would have for you to talk with all of this confidence and not be with us if something goes wrong with that 24/7 contract. Things are looking up for you, Jon and there’s no doubt that Ryan won’t be giving you much trouble later tonight, but how about Midsummer Massacre?
Jon Kelton: What about it?
Justin Windgate: I’m doing nothing for Midsummer Massacre. Why not face me one-on-one?
(The socially distanced crowd is heard cheering due to a potential match between these two men.)
Jon Kelton: Can you handle the smoke?
Justin Windgate: I KNOW I can handle the smoke.
Jon Kelton: I don’t back down from a challenge. You’re on.
(The socially distanced crowd cheers from outside the arena.)
Justin Windgate: Awesome. I’ll go to Ryan Wilson and make this match happen. Good luck because you’re going to need it.
(Justin Windgate leaves the locker rooms, leaving Jon Kelton to continue preparing for his match.)
(“Break Free” by The New Low hits the speakers as Xavier Williams makes his way out onto the stage to an onslaught of cheers from the crowd in attendance. He nods his head and makes his way down to the ring)
Gina Romano: And his opponent!! He is from Pensacola, Florida!! Weighing in at 190lbs!! THE YOUNG WOOOOLFFF!! XXXXAVIIERRRR WILLLLLLLLIAMMSSSSSSS!!!
Deadprez: The Young Wolf is in the building tonight! He’s had a great start to the season so far and he’ll definitely be looking to gain some more momentum going into his clash with Raven Roberts at Midsummer Massacre
Eve: For sure! Raven’s a former world champion but so is Xavier, both of them will be looking to get the win on the day but on this day, Xavier has to focus on Ronan Malosi
Break Free fades out as the instrumental version of ‘2nd Sucks’ by A Day to Remember booms through the speakers. Ronan Malosi creeps up onto the stage to an eruption of boos and jeers. He looks around at the crowd with a giant smirk on his face before making his way down the ramp)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Cape Town, South Africa, weighing in at 280 pounds.. “MR MAIN EVENT”, ROOOOOONNNNANNNNN MAAALLLLLLOOOOOSSSII!!
Gavin Kirkland: The great Free Agent himself is in the building after a grueling cage match that ended with Ronan losing due to our GM’s intervention
Eve: Unfair in my eyes but it is what it is. Ronan’s got what he wants, more opportunities to showcase the true talent that he posses and this is another chance to do so against Xavier freaking Williams!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: And this one is underway…AND RONAN IMMEDIATELY CHARGES AT XAVIER WITH A BOOT! BUT XAVIER GETS OUTS THE WAY AND HITS RONAN WITH A QUICK ENZIGURI, KNOCKING HIM INTO THE CORNER
Gavin Kirkland: Xav rushes into the corner and grabs a hold of Ronan by the arm. He pulls him out of the corner and irish whips him into the corner! Xav then charges at Ronan..
Deadprez: BUT NO! RONAN SIDESTEPS HIM AND XAVIER GOES FLYING INTO THE CORNER! RONAN CAPITALISES ON THE OPPORTUNITY AND NAILS XAVIER WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE BACK!
Eve: Ronan then locks his arms around Xavier’s waist and lifts him up…GERMAN SUPLE- NO! XAVIER ESCAPES, GETS AROUND THE BACK OF RONAN AND LIFTS HIM IN THE AIR…GERMANNN SUPLE- NAH! RONAN GETS OUT AND DOES THE SAME THING AS XAVIER! HE GETS ROUND THE BACK OF HIM, LOCKS HIS ARMS AROUND HIS WAIST AND LIFTS HIM IN THE AIR….GERMANNN SUPLEX! IT CONNECT-
Gavin Kirkland: BUT XAVIER LANDS ON HIS FEET! RONAN SPINS AROUND AND NOTICES, HE RUNS AT XAVIER…BUT XAVIER STRIKES HIM WITH A SUPERKICK! HE HAS HIM STUNNED! XAVIER REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND RUNS BACK AT RONAN..
Eve: BUT RONAN CATCHES HIM WITH A CRIPPLING BIG BOOT, KNOCKING XAVIER FLAT ON THE MAT! RONAN AINT DONE THOUGH! HE DRAGS XAVIER UP TO HIS FEET AND NAILS HIM WITH A FOREARM SMASH, STUNNING HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! RONAN REBOUND OFF THE ROPES AND PACES IT AT XAVIER….LARRIAATTTTTT
Deadprez: NO! XAVIER FLIPS OVER RONAN’S ARM AND CATCHES HIM WITH A SUPERKICK! XAVIER THEN RUNS TO THE ROPES, HANDSPRINGS OFF THEM AND CLATTERS RONAN WITH AN ENZIGURI BEFORE THROWING HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!
Gavin Kirkland: WHAT’S XAVIER LOOKING FOR HERE!? XAVIER DOES A CARTWHEEL AND HITS RONAN WITH A BIG SASUKE SPECIAL! THAT WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD!
Deadprez: Look at that man, Xavier wipes his hands as if Ronan ain’t nun to him. He turns his attention back to Malosi. Xavier picks Ronan’s head up and drags him toward the apron. He lifts his head in the air and slams it hard on the apron! Xavier follows that up with another slam, he follows that up with one more, and another one before irish whipping Ronan into the steel ring post!
Gavin Kirkland: NOPE! Ronan outpowers Xavier and sends him into the ring post instead! Ronan then rushes over towards Xavier and takes him down to floor with a shoulder tackle!
Deadprez: Ronan takes some control now. He pulls Xavier’s body and leans him on the apron before unloading on him with piercing stomps right into his chest! Ronan grabs a hold of Xavier’s arm and drags him up to his feet – he follows that up with a massive irish whip into the barricades, Xavier goes crashing into it! Ronan ain’t slowing down there though, he charges at Xavier and nails him with a massive uppercut before lifting him up into the air and slamming him down with a colossal Uranage Slam!
Eve: There’s evident determination to do better from Ronan Malosi – I don’t blame him, he HAS to be determined! In a hurry, he drags Xavier up to his feet by his hair and props him up onto the apron then pushes his body into the ring; Ronan follows him in. He brings Xavier back up to his feet and throws him into the corner. Ronan backs up into the opposite corner and sprints at Xavier..
Gavin Kirkland: BUT XAVIER GETS OUT THE WAY AND RONAN CRASHES INTO THE CORNER! Xavier gets in the middle of the ring and dashes at Ronan too…BUT RONAN DODGES IT AND CHARGES AT XAVIER, NAILING HIM WITH A RUNNING BACK ELBOW! Ronan quickly pulls Xavier into the middle of the ring, kicks him in the gut, BUT XAVIER GETS HIS ARMS OVER RONAN AND PULLS HIM UP INTO THE AIR…..AND NAILS HIM WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX!
Deadprez: Xavier’s in this match! You can never bet against him! Both men gradually start to make their way up to their feet – Xavier gets up first. He grabs a hold of Ronan’s wrist and irish whips him into the ropes. Ronan rebounds off them and sprints at Xavier at full pace, Xavier tries to meet him in the middle with a clothesline but Ronan dodges it and keeps on running. He rebounds off the opposite ropes and dashes at Xavier once more, Xavier tries the same thing again but Ronan dodges it once more and continues the charge. He rebounds off the ropes once again but this time goes on the offense and tries to take Xavier down with a lariat! But Xavier thinks fast and gets low, evading the strike. Xavier then runs to the ropes and jumps on them….SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! BUT NAH! RONAN BACKS UP! BUT XAVIER STILL LANDS ON HIS FEET IN FRONT OF RONAN AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A PELE KICK
Eve: NO! RONAN EVADES THE PELE KICK AND IMMEDIATELY POUNCES ONTO XAVIER! HE GRABS HIM AROUND THE WAIST AND LIFTS HIM INTO THE AIR….GERMAN SUPLEX!
Deadprez: NO! XAVIER LANDS ON HIS FEET! HE SPINS AROUND, RUNS TO THE ROPES AND BOUNCES OFF THEM……SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT! IT CONNECTS! XAVIER AIN’T DONE JUST THERE, HE DRAGS RONAN UP TO HIS FEET AGAIN AND KICKS HIM IN THE GUT…HE HOISTS THE 280 POUNDER UP INTO THE AIR AND NAILS HIM WITH A LIGER BOMB! XAVIER GOES FOR THE COVER
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOO! THRE-
Gavin Kirkland: Ronan just about gets the shoulder up! Xavier shakes his head in frustration before pulling himself up to his feet with the ropes. Before Ronan can get up to his feet, Xavier pulls Ronan up and kicks him in the gut. Xavier hooks the arms, HE’S GOING FOR THE FINISH HERE! WE KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS! XAVIER LIFTS RONAN U-
Eve: NO! RONAN FIGHTS OUT OF IT! HE PUSHES XAVIER OFF HIM AND NAILS HIM WITH A QUICK FOREARM SMASH! BUT XAVIER RESPONDS HIM WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE, STUNNING MR MAIN EVENT! XAVIER RUNS TO THE ROPES AND REBOUNDS OFF THEM, HE CHARGES AT RONAN….BUT RONAN LEVELS HIM WITH A DISCUS LARIAT! RONAN QUICKLY PICKS XAVIER UP TO HIS FEET, GRABS HIM BY THE THROAT AND LIFTS HIM INTO THE AIR… THE SPINESPLITTER! HE NAILS HIM WITH THE CHOKESLAM BACKBREAKER! RONAN LANDS ON XAVIER FOR THE COVER
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOO! THRE-
Deadprez; Xavier manages to kick ou- BUT LOOK! RONAN IMMEDIATELY SHOOTS UP TO HIS FEET! HE’S GONNA END IT HERE! HE PULLS XAVIER UP TO HIS FEET AND GRABS HIM BY THE WRIST! RONAN PULLS XAVIER INTO HIM…..DEAAAATHHHHHHHH RO- NO! XAVIER FLIPS OVER RONAN’S ARMS AND NAILS HIM WITH A RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE! XAVIER KICKS RONAN IN THE GUT….HE HOOKS THE ARMS…HE LIFTS HIM UPP…….STORMMMBREAKERRRRRRR! IT CONNECTS! XAVIER HOOKS THE LEG!
Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: And your winner…..XAAAAAAAAAAVVVVIERRRRRRRRRR WILLLLLLLIAAAAAAAAMMMMSSSS!
Eve: Another solid performance from The Young Wolf en route to the first PPV of the season!
Deadprez: That’s gon’ be a very disappointing loss for Ronan but he’s gotta keep his head in the game if he wants a job around here, shit like this just don’t cut it!
???: Hey, Xavier!
(The camera pans to find Raven Roberts standing on top of the ramp. Xavier Williams looks over to find the “Bird of Prey” with a microphone in her hands. Xavier is tired after his battle against Ronan Malosi, but he takes the time to pay attention to what Raven has to say. Xavier’s entrance music dies down.)
Raven Roberts: I was going to wait to come out and personally call you out, but seeing that you’re out there and the Showdown fans don’t deserve to have me fall in line and do as I’m told to do, I’m just going to come out here. I’m aware that you’re looking for nothing more than to stay on the sidelines with Midsummer Massacre next weekend, but that’s never been me whatsoever. No, I am not going to miss this card because Ryan Wilson can’t figure out where to randomly place me in. I’ve always been the woman who makes her own opportunities when she sees nothing in front of her to snatch. Who the fuck does Ryan Wilson think I am? Does he REALLY think that he can put Raven fucking Roberts in the corner? You think that she’s going to patiently wait for Ryan Wilson to give her some opportunity? No, like I said a few weeks ago — I am not going to wait for someone to give me an opportunity, I am going to take what rightfully belongs for me and there’s not a damn thing that anyone can do about it.
(Raven Roberts steps inside the ring before looking across from Xavier Williams in the ring.)
Raven Roberts: I was a little offended that you think that I wasn’t interesting enough to face at Midsummer Massacre. When you said that you would rather sit in the sidelines rather than face me, well, it took me back, but at the same time, I don’t blame you because no other Elitists should want to stand in the same ring because I will defeat them, but I’ve been hearing the hype of Xavier Williams in the back. I’ve heard people saying that you’re not the same man that you once were and you’re someone who has been able to take down challenger after challenger after challenger. You even won your first Pain for Pride match in five years last month. Meanwhile, I just came out of Pain for Pride with a stinging loss and going up against you, I see that placing me back on track to get some more championship gold to my list of accomplishments, so what do you say?
(Xavier Williams gets a microphone from the timekeeper.)
Xavier Williams: Raven, I said this a bit last week, but I can relate to you in a way. I can relate to you because I know a thing or two about giving it my all and people not saying anything about that. I’ve had people CHEER for Jamie O’Hara as he ended my career at Pain for Pride X. I had people CHEER for my downfall much like you believed that people cheered for Minerva and encouraged her behavior into bringing your personal information into the light. It’s a horrible thing, but that’s life. People will cheer for whoever they want to cheer. In your eyes, you were supposed to be the hero of the story. You were supposed to be the woman who was supposed to get her revenge on a ruthless champion who exploited your personal life in order to play her mind games. The outcome at Pain for Pride? It just proves that the hero doesn’t always get the happy ending that they seek out. It’s something that Harlow Reichert learned the hard way at Pain for Pride. People have gotten the impression that every match is supposed to have the hero win, but there are occasions where they don’t and you need to get that fact out of your mind. Not everything is about you and getting your desired story. It’s not about playing the blame game for your failures. Instead, it’s to use these setbacks and become better than ever.
Raven Roberts: Don’t give me those dad lectures that you give Harlow, Xavier. All I asked you is whether you’ll be up to facing me at Midsummer Massacre?
Xavier Williams: I see the fire in your eyes, Raven. It’s a completely different version, but you’re on.
(The crowd cheers due to a new match being made.)
Xavier Williams: But let me assure you, Raven. You, like everyone else, is getting a different version of me, so be ready.
Raven Roberts: I will, but —
(Raven Roberts strikes Xavier Williams with a Talon! The Hall of Famer is taken down as Raven picks up her microphone again, looking down at Xavier.)
Raven Roberts: Will you be ready for me? By the looks of things, you won’t be.
(Raven Roberts drops the microphone as “In My Bones” by The Score picks up again. Raven looks down at Xavier Williams once last time before exiting the ring.)
Eve: WE GOT ANOTHER MATCH FOR MIDSUMMER MASSACRE! THIS IS SHAPING UP TO BE A GREAT CARD!
Deadprez: Raven Roberts nailed Xavier Williams with one of her Talons and it could be a clear foreshadowing of what we can expect next weekend!
(Xavier Williams tries to pick up himself, checking on his lip to see if any blood is coming out, but he’s good. Raven Roberts glares at Xavier before heading towards the back.)
(Small commercial break.)
( ‘Last Strike’ by Polo G blasts through the speakers to a mixed reaction as it prompts for Jon Kelton to jerk the curtain and step onto the entranceway. He scans the atmosphere before confidently striding towards the squared circle. )
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST! From Toronto, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 210 pounds… MR. 24/7…. “THE CHOSEN ONE”, JONNNNNNNNNNNNNNN KELLLLLLLLTTTTTTTTTTTTTTONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!
Deadprez: Ever since he walked out of Pain For Pride 13 with the 24/7 Contract, Jon Kelton has not only been given a bullseye on his back, but he has also maintained an onwards-and-upwards trajectory for this career. Kelton has proven time-and-time again that he is close to rusty and that he’s in much better shape than he was back in his initial EAW run.
Gavin Kirkland: Come to think of it. That’s a big, ole, muscular man…
Eve: You’re right, ‘Prez. Jon Kelton is going nowhere but up and soon he’ll be up at the top of the summits where he’ll sit on a throne.
( As Kelton calibrates his mindset in the corner, “The Only Thing They Fear Is You” by Mick Gordon begins to play throughout the socially distanced performance center. Boos rain down onto the entranceway as Ryan Wilson nonchalantly jumps onto the stage, looking more hyped and prepared than ever for his upcoming match. )
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT! From Montreal, Quebec, Canada, weighing in at 220 pounds.. HE IS THE SHOWDOWN GENERAL MANAGER… MISTERRRR WILLLSONNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Our general manager has arrived and he looks to make an example out of one of his roster members, and that member is none other than Jon Kelton. Ryan Wilson should expect the toughest as he is battling the man who outlasted many, many men in that 24/7 Battle Royale, so if you ask me, he has his hands extremely full.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Deadprez: This contest is now officially underway as Ryan Wilson and Jon Kelton meet in the center of the ring. These two have exchanged many words in the past seven days and tonight, they seek to make all of it culminate in a hard-hitting brawl! Even though Wilson is our general manager in command, he continues to wrestle and try to expand his resume.
Eve: They engage in a tight collar-and-elbow tie-up! Kelton attempts to transition into a wrist lock, but Wilson slaps his hand away and hops up.. HE SNATCHES HIS HEAD!! CHAOS THEORY!! NO!! KELTON SHRUGS HIM OFF HIS SHOULDERS AND BOTH MEN NOW FREEZE ON EITHER SIDE OF THE RING! Wilson with a smirk on his face as he almost had Kelton in the bag right there!
Gavin Kirkland: Wilson giving him a warning to how sudden his Chaos Theory cutter is as they both meet in the center once again. Wilson motions for a test of strength, but Kelton goes around the waist and grounds him with a waist takedown! Jon Kelton has him on the ground, but Wilson quickly maneuvers around and wrestles him down inta headlock. Kelton snatches his head with a legscissors, Wilson escapes and rolls him onto his back.
Deadprez: KELTON GETS HIS LEGS UP! WILSON COMES OFF THE ROPES AND ROLLS OVER THEM! Both men get up to their feet. Kelton ducks the clothesline, Wilson jumps onto the middle rope and jumps backwards into Kelton. He ducks his legs, comes off the ropes and GETS TURNED INSIDE OUT WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! NO!! KELTON GRABS HIS ARMS, TWISTS AROUND AND HOOKS THEM!! EGO TRIP!!
Eve: NO!! WILSON EVADES WHAT WOULD’VE BEEN CATASTROPHIC AND THROWS HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!! Kelton holds onto the ropes as WILSON TURNS AROUND AND CHARGES IN!! BOTH MEN CONNECT WITH A PUNCH AT THE SAME TIME!! Kelton is clinging onto the top rope while Wilson is in La-La-Land trying to figure out what city we’re in!
Deadprez: WILSON CHARGES INTO KELTON!! KELTON SPRINGS ONTO THE TOP ROPE WHILE WILSON SLIDES UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE!! KELTON FLIPS OVER AND SOARS ONTO RYAN WILSON WITH A SENSATION ASAI MOONSAULT! KELTON WAS ONE STEP AHEAD AS HE NOW BRINGS HIM BACK INTO THE RING. He slides into the ring and hooks his tights! HE HOISTS HIM UP INTO THE AIR…… and EMPHATICALLY SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A VERTICAL SUPLEX!! SIDEPRESS COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: KICK-OUT!! Kelton immediately picks Wilson up to his feet. He grabs his arms and twists him around! HE’S LOOKING FOR THE AVADA KEDAVRA!! BUT WILSON ESCAPES AND WRAPS HIS ARMS AROUND HIS WAIST!! FOR A GERMAN, POSSIBLY? NO! KELTON SLAPS HIS WRIST AWAY AND CRACKS HIM WITH A BACK ELBOW! WILSON DUCKS IT, GRABS THE WAIST FROM THE FRONT, HOOKS THE LEG, ELEVATES AND DRIVES HIM DOWN WITH A RELEASE EXPLODER SUPLEX!
Eve: Jon Kelton gets grounded with an exploder suplex as Wilson quickly gathers to his feet and hoists him into the air! WILSON HAS HIM HIGH UP IN THE AIR AS HE NOW CARRIES AND RUNS WITH HIM INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!! AND DRIVES HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH A RUNNING SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
Deadprez: KICK-OUT! Wilson with a dropkick to the back that sends Kelton into the middle rope. Kelton is up front against the middle roep as WILSON SIGNALS FOR IT! IS HE ABOUT TO GO FOR IT!! HE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES AND COMES CHARGING IN!! HE DIALS UP THE 514!!
Eve: NO!! KELTON DUCKS IT AND CLOCKS HIM RIGHT TO THE JAW WITH A DISCUS KNEE STRIKE!! THAT GOT HIM!! THAT GOT HIM RIGHT IN THE MUSHER!! KELTON NOW GRABS THE WAIST!! AND NAILS HIM INTO THE CANVAS WITH A GERMAN SUPLEX.. WITH A BRIDGE!!
Gavin Kirkland: OUR GENERAL MANAGER POWERS OUT AT TWO!! Jon Kelton has done a good job defending himself from the wrath of Ryan Wilson as he now positions him in the center of the ring. He lays him on his back before RUNNING AND JUMPING ONTO THE MIDDLE ROPE! HE’S ADVANCING TOWARDS THE SECOND-ROPE MOONSAULT!
Eve: BUT WILSON ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!! KELTON LANDS SAFELY ON HIS FEET TO THE SIGHT OF WILSON RUSHING IN!! HE POPS HIM UP INTO THE AIR! GRABS HIM AND SLAMS HIM DOWN WITH A DEVASTATING POWERSLAM!! A POP-UP POWERSLAM TO WILSON AS KELTON IS NOT DONE YET!! HE PICKS UP HIM AND LIFTS OUR GENERAL MANAGER INTO A SUPINE POSITION!! AND DRILLS HIM WITH A SIT-OUT BRAINBUSTER!! THAT’S GOT TO BE IT!!
Deadprez: KICK-OUT! “The Chosen One” is becoming frustrated now as he angrily plucks the general manager up to his feet. He grabs his wrists and twists him around.. AVADA KEDAVRA INCOMING?!?! NO!! WILSON DROPS DOWN AND IMMEDIATELY ROLLS OUT OF THE RING! Wilson insists on taking a breather as KELTON THINKS OF THE OPPOSITE!! KELTON RUNS THE ROPE AND SHOOTS THROUGH THE AIR!!
Eve: SUPERMAN PUNCH!! WILSON WITH A SUPERMAN PUNCH IN MID-AIR AS HE NOW QUICKLY PUSHES HIM BACK INTO THE RING!! KELTON GOT ROCKED WITH THAT PUNCH AS WILSON IS SIGNALLING FOR ANOTHER ONE!! HE RUSHES IN OUT FROM THE CORNER AND FLIES INTO THE AIR FOR A SECOND SUPERMAN PUNCH!
Gavin Kirkland: KELTON WITH A SUPERKICK IN MID-AIR!! HE DIDN’T GET ALL OF IT AS HE NAILED THE MIDSECTION!! OUR GENERAL MANAGER REELS INTO THE CORNER WHILE KELTON RUSHES OFF THE CANVAS AND BACK INTO WILSON!! RUNNING CORNER SHOULDER THRUST!!

KELTON COUNTERS WITH ANOTHER SUPERKICK!! WHAT IMPECCABLE TIMING AS HE GOT THE FULL-FLEDGED CONNECTION OF THE SUPERKICK TO THE JAW AS HE NOW TWISTS AROUND… AVADA KEDAVRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eve: KICK-OUT! Jon Kelton, “The Chosen One”, has had Ryan Wilson’s number thus far in this match-up and if this dominance continues, Kelton might be very well on his way over to a victory over the Showdown General Manager. Kelton pulls Wilson up to his feet and traps the arms! HE HAS BOTH OF THEM HOOKED!!! THE EGO TRIP!!! NO!! WILSON GRABS THE LEGS AND FLIPS OVER!!
Gavin Kirkland: THAT WAS ALMOST IT!! BOTH ELITISTS NOW EMERGE UP TO THEIR FEET AT THE SAME TIME!! KELTON GETS UP FIRST AND NAILS HIM WITH A FLUSH SUPERKICK!! WILSON IS STAGGERED AS KELTON CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER FLUSH SUPERKICK TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD!! KELTON IS JUST BULLYING HI MAT HIS POINT AS WILSON REBOUNDS FORWARD OFF THE SECOND ROPE AND BACK INTO KELTON.. WHAT THE!??
Eve: CHAOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS THEOOOOOOOORY!!! WILSON GOT HIM!! WILSON WITH THE JUMPING CUTTER OUT OF DAMN NOWHERE AS HE GINGERLY TURNS KELTON’S BODY OVER FOR THE COVER!! SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!! THIS HAS TO BE IT FOR “THE CHOSEN ONE”!!!
Deadprez: JON KELTON LIFTS HIS SHOULDER UP JUST BEFORE THE THREE COUNT!! RYAN WILSON CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! WILSON THOUGHT HE HAD HIS NUMBER RIGHT THERE AND THEN, BUT KELTON CONTINUES TO STAY ALIVE IN THIS MATCH AND I THINK THAT’S GOING TO MAKE OUR GENERAL MANAGER EXPLODE!
Eve: Ryan Wilson is in the face of the referee, claiming that he was purposefully counting slower than usual, but this is all anger! Wilson is letting his emotions get the best of him as the referee is not what should be in his sights! Jon Kelton is right there in the middle of the ring, lying there and being there for the pickings, and that is a great opportunity for Wilson to take advantage of.
Gavin Kirkland: GAME OVER!! GAME OVER!! GAME OVER CONNECTS TO THE REFEREE AS WILSON JUST DROPPED THE OFFICIAL WITH A STUNNER!! WILSON FURTHER ESTABLISHING THAT YOU SHOULD NEVER MESS WITH THE BOSS!!
Deadprez: That was a horrible idea from the general manager as he just threw his winning chances out of the window! Wilson now returns his attention onto his opponent and hooks Kelton’s arms! HE HAS HIM IN THE SMALL PACKAGE! HE HAS HIM HOOKED!! HE NOW HOISTS HIM UP!!
Eve: BUT KELTON FLIPS OVER HIS SHOULDERS AND EVADES THE MIC DROP SMALL PACKAGE PILEDRIVER!! WILSON TURNS HIS HEAD AROUND!! AND GETS DECKED WITH A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE!! A LEAPING KNEE STRIKE THAT SHATTERS THE JAW NOW AS KELTON NOW PULLS HIM IN.. HOOKS THE ARMS… AND DRILLS HIM WITH THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK DDT!! THE EGO TRIP CONNECTS!! BOTH LEGS ARE HOOKED BUT THERE IS NO REFEREE!!
Gavin Kirkland: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! THREEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! FOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SIX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SEVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson took the referee out of the match with his patented stunner, therefore there is no one to count! Kelton is trying to get a referee from backstage, but he is getting ignored! This is not looking good for Jon Kelton as if the referee was conscious, he would’ve had this contest in the bag!
Gavin Kirkland: FIFTEEEEEEEN!! SIXTEEN!!! SEVENTEEN!! EIGHTEEN!!! NINETEEN!! TWENTY!!
Eve: Jon Kelton is clueless on what to do next! He’s screaming at the stage for a new referee to be implemented but like Deadprez said, no one is answering back! Kelton is becoming nervous as he turns around. WILSON WITH A LOW BLOW!! NO! KELTON GRABS HIS FOOT AND TWISTS HIM AROUND!! HE PULLS HIM AND HOOKS BOTH ARMS!! THE EGO TRIP!!
Deadprez: BUT WILSON IS ABLE TO GET THE LOW BLOW IN ANYWAYS!! WILSON GETS A LOW BLOW IN AS KELTON DROPS DOWN TO THE MAT LIKE A SACK OF POTATOES!! WILSON GIVES A STRANGE SIGNAL TO THE STAGE AND A REFEREE COMES RUNNING DOWN!! WHAT IS THIS SORCERY!?!? HOW COME THEY DIDN’T ANSWER KELTON’S PLEA?!?!
Gavin Kirkland: ONE-HUNDRED-AND-TWO! ONE-HUNDRED-AND-THREE!! ONE-HUNDRED-AND-FOUR!! ONE-HUNDRED-AND-FIVE!!
Eve & Deadprez: SHUT-UP!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Hey. I am just doing the referee’s job.
Eve: This match is officially back to normal now as we now have a referee back in commission! Wilson pulls the agonized Jon Kelton up to his feet, gives him his last rites and JUMPS UP INTO THE AIR!!! THE JUMPING CUTTER!! NO!! KELTON COUNTERS THE CHAOS THEORY INTO A SCHOOL-BOY!!
Deadprez: BUT THE REFEREE ISN’T COUNTING!! KELTON IS PINNING HIM WITH ALL HIS MIGHT, AND IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN THREE SECONDS. KELTON RELINQUISHES THE SCHOOL BOY AS HE GETS IN THE FACE OF THE REFEREE! Wilson possesses a bold smile on his face as this may be a personally-assigned referee by Wilson himself! Was this the plan for this match?
Eve: KELTON TURNS AROUND!! AND WALKS INTO THE DEATH-RO!! WHAT IN THE ALMIGHTY? KELTON JUST GOT NAILED WITH RONAN MALOSI’S FINISHER!! RYAN WILSON AND THE REFEREE POSSESSING A SMIRK ON THEIR FACE AS HE JUST STOLE A MOVE OUT OF RONAN MALOSI’S PLAYBOOK!! HE NONCHALANTLY HOOKS BOTH LEGS!! COVER!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER… RYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN WILSSSONNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eve: With the assistance of the referee, Ryan Wilson walks out of this hard-hitting battle with the all-needed victory. Jon Kelton put on an incredible performance tonight. He had the general manager’s number for a majority of the match, but it was Wilson’s abuse of power that would be proven detrimental to his winning chances.
Gavin Kirkland: Three-hundred-and-five… Three-hundred-and-six… Three-hundred-and-four.. Three-hundred-and-fi-
( Ryan Wilson rolls out of the ring and is helped up by the referee as he is handed a microphone. )
Ryan Wilson: AN ABUSE OF POWER? Eve, you’re lucky because I would fire your ass right here on the spot, but since you’re a half-decent commentator, I’ll let that comment slide. What I did just now was not an abuse of power. It was something called being smart. It was something called being aware. I outsmarted Jon Kelton in my squared circle. I was one step ahead of him and hate it or loathe it, that makes me better than that loser.
Ryan Wilson: That’s what it is like to be a general manager, Eve. In order to be in my position, you have to be of incredible intelligence, and that was why I hand-picked to be in this position. Therefore, I would suggest that the next time my name comes out of your mouth, you treat it with venerance. Anyways, I would like to direct my attention onto Ronan Malosi, a man who’s shown the same disrespect you showed me, Eve, but magnified by a thousand.
Ryan Wilson: Ronan Malosi is a waste of space. He is a waste of oxygen, and the fact that he wasn’t even considered to be drafted to a brand proves that. But, I, the respectful, compassionate Ryan Wilson, give him the opportunity to prove it otherwise and he does what with it? He spoils my party. He disrespects your general manager, and he wants another chance? I gave him an opportunity at Xavier Williams and he did nothing with it.
Ryan Wilson: A guy like him doesn’t deserve a second chance, but like I said. I am a respectful, compassionate man, so I am going to save all of the bitching, moaning, and complaining, and I am going to give him that second chance. Where will that second chance take place, you ask? It will take place at Midsummer Massacre. Ronan Malosi versus Ryan Wilson. Small fry versus big fish. There’s always a catch to it, right? If Ronan is somehow able to score a victory over me, which has zero percent of happening, then he will obtain a legitimate contract with the Showdown brand.
Ryan Wilson: However, that is if he beats me, and a pathetic, useless, irrelevant piece of shit such as Ronan Malosi stands no chance against your Showdown General Manager. Thank you.
(Ryan Wilson drops the mic as “The Only Thing They Fear Is You” plays once again as Ryan leaves the ring.)
Deadprez: We got another match set for Midsummer Massacre! If Ronan Malosi defeats Ryan Wilson, he gets his Showdown contract!
Gavin Kirkland: I’m kinda afraid for Ronan. Ryan Wilson seems to be losing his cool when it comes to Ronan, so who knows what’s going to happen.
Eve: I am just going to forget what Ryan Wilson said to me and let’s move on to the next match!
(The camera pans to Gina Romano in the ring.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!
Small Socially Distancing Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Gina Romano: … AND IT IS A TAG TEAM MATCH!!!!!!!
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST …FROM LONG ISLAND NEW YORK!!!!! WEIGHING IN AT 197 POUNDS… HE IS ‘THE BLUEPRINT’ LUUUUUUUCASSSSSSSSSS JOHNSON!!!!!
(‘Young and Bitter’ by Hot Tag Media blasts throughout the Performance Center as Lucas Johnson stands atop the crowd and poses as he’s met with boos before making his way to the ring)
Deadprez: Last week this young man put on a clinic with Jon Kelton and was a few moments away from leaving victorious, but he psyched himself out and now he has to find a way to put that behind him and make the most of the opportunity in front of him tonight as he’s in a tag team match against the Number One Contenders for the Interwire and Answers Championship.
Gina Romano: AND HIS PARTNER, FROM LONDON ENGLAND, WEIGHING IN AT 243 POUNDS, HE IS ‘THE BLACK MAMBA’ JAAAAAMMMMMESSSSSSSSSSS RANGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(‘6:24’ by Danger plays throughout the Performance Center as James Ranger confidently walks down the ramp before pausing to observe the crowd, where he is met with boos.)
Eve: James Ranger is another young elitist that was nearing victory last week before circumstances got the better of him. Tonight he too has to erase last week from his memory and put his best foot forward.
Gavin Kirkland: But that’s easier said than done. Look at the guy, he got his head split open last week, what could he possibly be at right now, 60..70% maybe?! Jack Ripley and Sierra Bradford are going to have an easy night.
Gina Romano: AND THEIR OPPONENTS… INTRODUCING FIRST… RESIDING IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA!!!!! ‘THE MULTIVERSAL’ SIERRRRRAAAAAAAA BRADFORD!!!!
(‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake Blasts throughout the Performance Center as Sierra Bradford gleefully walks down the ramp and into the ring where she is met with an outstanding ovation of cheers.)
Gavin Kirkland: My gawd would you look at that ass- asset… Sierra Bradford is a HUGE asset to ShowDown! We are so lucky to have her, is what I was trying to say. :whew:
Eve: .. Right… Anyway, Sierra Bradford was handpicked to be Number one Contender for the Interwire Championship by the Interwire Champion herself last week. She wants to prove that she’s deserving of this opportunity, and tonight can go a long way in solidifying her claims.
Gina Romano: AND HER PARTNER FROM LAS VEGAS NEVADA, WEIGHING IN AT 202 POUNDS, HE IS ‘THE STRAIGHT SHOOTER’ JACK RIPLEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
( ‘BxMxC’ by BABYMETAL plays throughout the Performance Center as Jack Ripley stands atop the stage confidently before slowly making his descent to the ring where he is met with an abundance of cheers.)
Deadprez: This man Jack Ripley has star written all over him, and it’s to no surprise of mine that he was chosen to be the Number One Contender for Jamie O’Hara’s Answers World Championship. The way that he goes out and performs each and every week, and not only does he perform it seems as if he constantly gets better each and every time we see him!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: And it seems like James Ranger and Sierra Bradford are going to start this thing off as Ranger and Bradford come together for a collar and elbow tie-up – that ends with the much larger Ranger overpowering the smaller Bradford and pushing her back onto the canvas— WAIT WHAT’S THIS?
(‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes Hits as Consuela Rose Ava walks out with the Interwire Championship wrapped around her waist as she makes her way down to ringside staring directly at Sierra Bradford before stopping at the end of the ramp still keeping her eyes locked on Bradford.)
(‘We Appreciate Power’ fades out as the Performance Center gets quiet and dark before ‘Kashmir’ by Led Zeppelin finally plays throughout the Performance Center, as Jamie O’Hara walks down the ramp to a standing ovation of cheers as he unstraps the Answers World Championship from his waist to drape it over his shoulder, all while keeping eye contact with Jack Ripley.)
Eve: Sierra Bradford is in a state of shock and confusion now- BUT SHE DOESN’T HAVE MUCH TIME TO GATHER HER THOUGHTS AS JAMES RANGER NEARLY DESTROYS HER WITH AN ELBOW TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD THAT SENDS SIERRA FALLING DOWN TO THE CANVAS AGAIN! AND JAMES RANGER ISNT LETTING UP AS HE BEGINS STOMPING THE ALREADY GROUNDED SIERRA BRADFORD!
Gavin Kirkland: Ranger picks Bradford up and whips her into the ropes- now he’s measuring and- SNAP POWERSLAM- Ranger nearly powerslams the much smaller Bradford through the ring and now the cover! Man, I wish I could be on top of her like that…
DeadPrez: And Sierra Bradford with the quick kick out at one! She’s not letting her night end this early and she’s definitely not trying to show any signs of weakness while the Interwire Champion is watching along so vigilantly! Nonetheless, James Ranger isn’t giving Sierra Bradford any time to get into this match as he once again picks her up and whips her into the corner before tagging in his partner Lucas Johnson!
Eve: AND LUCAS JOHNSON DOESN’T WASTE ANY TIME EITHER AS HE KICKS SIERRA BRADFORD HARD IN THE MIDSECTION CAUSING HER TO DOUBLE OVER AND CATCH HER BREATH- I THINK THAT KICK MAY HAVE KNOCKED THE WIND OUT OF HER BUT LUCAS JOHNSON DOESN’T CARE AS MEASURES THE DOUBLED-OVER SIERRA BRADFORD AND RUNS FORWARD AND CONNECTS WITH A VICIOUS KNEE STRIKE RIGHT INTO AN UNSUSPECTING SIERRA BRADFORD.
Gavin Kirkland: Sierra Bradford is hurt bad! AND LUCAS JOHNSON KNOWS IT AS HE PICKS SIERRA UP AND —— OH MY GOD LUCAS JOHNSON ABSOLUTELY JUST SPIKES SIERRA BRADFORD INTO THE CANVAS WITH A BRUTAL SPINEBUSTER AND THIS COULD BE IT AS LUCAS GOES FOR THE PIN!!!
Deadprez: But Sierra still gets the shoulder up just before the two count! Sierra is showing off her resiliency here tonight but I don’t think she can continue taking this amount of damage. SHE NEEDS TO TAG IN HER PARTNER but Lucas Johnson drops down to pick her up and he carries her back to the corner to tag James Ranger back in- AND HE DOES AND NOW JAMES RANGER NAILS SIERRA WITH A VICIOUS CLOTHESLINE THAT SENDS HER RIGHT BACK DOWN THE CANVAS!!
Eve: Sierra is in a bad place right now and she’s trying her hardest to get to Jack Ripley but he’s all the way on the other side of the ring! Ranger and Johnson have done a great job of separating her from Ripley, and they’re now playing the numbers game to keep Bradford on their side of the ring PICKING HER APART PIECE BY PIECE AS JAMES RANGER RUNS AT BRADFORD AND CONNECTS HEAD-ON WITH A DRIVEBY KICK!
Gavin Kirkland: Instead of covering Bradford- Ranger is setting her up for something else instead…— Ranger waits for Bradford to get up to her feet and —- COILED EMBRACE!!!! THE SAME MOVE THAT NEARLY KILLED JAKE SMITH LAST WEEK!!! THE LEG ACROSS THE THROAT OF SIERRA BRADFORD WHOS SQUIRMING AROUND DESPERATELY TRYING TO FIND A WAY OUT OF IT! AND JAMES RANGER IS NOT LETTING GO OF THIS ANY TIME SOON SO SHE EITHER AS TO ESCAPE OR PASS OUT!
Deadprez: BACK IN SIERRAS CORNER JACK RIPLEY IS TRYING TO RALLY THE CROWD BUT I DONT THINK SIERRA HAS THE ENERGY TO EVEN GET TO HIM AND TAG HIM IN LET ALONE BREAK OUT OF THIS SUBMISSION! JAMES RANGER IS TORQUING THAT SUBMISSION AND SIERRA BRADFORD HAS TO BE ON THE BRINK OF TAPPING OUT AND SHE DOES!!!! SIERRA BRADFORD TAPS OU- NO SIERRA SHIFTS HER BODY WEIGHT AND NOW SHE’S ON TOP OF JAMES RANGER!!!
Eve: SIERRA HAS FREED HERSELF FROM THE COILED EMBRACE AND IS NOW RAINING DOWN DESPERATION STRIKES ONTO JAMES RANGER WHOS DOING HIS BEST TO COVER UP- BUT SIERRA FOLLOWS UP THE COMBINATION WITH A HEADBUTT SHADES OF WHAT WE SAW JAKE SMITH DO TO JAMES RANGER LAST WEEK AND NOW ITS SIERRA BRADFORD IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT!
Gavin Kirkland: Funny I always thought she seemed like more of a rider… I mean um YES SIERRA IS NOW IN FULL CONTROL AS JAMES RANGER ROLLS AROUND ON THE CANVAS CLUTCHING HIS HEAD AS A RESULT OF THAT POWERFUL HEADBUTT COURTESY OF SIERRA BRADFORD! SIERRA TRIES TO PULL HERSELF UP AND MAKE IT BACK TO HER CORNER TO TAG IN HER PARTNER AND SHE DOE- NO JAMES RANGER QUICKLY STOPS HER BEFORE SHE’S ABLE TO MAKE THE TAG TO RIPLEY!
Eve: SIERRA WAS SO CLOSE TO GETTING JACK RIPLEY INTO THIS MATCH BUT AS SOON AS SHE WAS NEAR HER CORNER JAMES RANGER MADE THE SAVE AND KNOCKS HER DOWN WITH A PRECISE DROPKICK! RANGER PICKS BRADFORD UP AND——- SUNSET FINISH— NO! WAIT, SIERRA COUNTERS IT AND NAILS JAMES RANGER WITH THE RIGHTING WOES AND NOW BOTH COMPETITORS ARE MOTIONLESS ON THE MAT!
Deadprez: JAMES RANGER IS ON HIS BACK… SIERRA IS ON HER SIDE BOTH OF THESE YOUNG TALENTED ELITISTS NEED TO MAKE A TAG TO THEIR PARTNERS BUT BOTH OF THEM DON’T HAVE THE WHEREWITHAL TO MAKE THAT DISTINCTION. WHO’S GOING TO MAKE THE TAG FIRST!?
Gavin Kirkland: It looks like James Ranger is the first to move as he begins to crawl towards an eager Lucas Johnson who’s desperately waiting to finish this match and prove his worth to the ShowDown faithful, and on the other side it seems like Sierra Bradford has started making progress towards her corner to tag in Jack Ripley, who has not seen any action this entire match!
Deadprez: James Ranger is almost there to his corner to tag in Lucas Johnson he’s just fingertips away!!! And Sierra Bradford is nearing Jack Ripley who is just absolutely dying to get in this match!! AND THE TAG IS MADE— BY JAMES RANGER TO LUCAS JOHNSON WHO IMMEDIATELY RUSHES TO STOP SIERRA BRADFORD — WHO LUNGES FORWARD AND TAGS IN JACK RIPLEY BEFORE ROLLING OUT OF THE RING ONTO THE FLOOR!
Eve: AND JACK RIPLEY ISN’T WASTING ANYTIME HERE AS HE CHARGES LUCAS JOHNSON AND NEARLY TURNS HIM INSIDE OUT WITH A CLOTHESLINE!!!! JACK RIPLEY WAITS FOR LUCAS JOHNSON TO GET BACK UP AND KNOCKS HIM RIGHT BACK DOWN AGAIN CONNECTING THIS TIME WITH A BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK RIGHT TO THE FACE OF LUCAS JOHNSON!
Gavin Kirkland: The last thing Lucas Johnson and James Ranger want to see is a fired-up Jack Ripley but unfortunately that’s exactly what they’ve got to deal with tonight as Jack Ripley send’s Lucas Johnson into the corner before ascending over him on the turnbuckle- what’s going on here? OH JACK RIPLEY IS JUST UNLEASHING BLOWS ON TO THE GROGGY LUCAS JOHNSON WHO’S TRAPPED IN THE CORNER AND THE CROWD IS COUNTING ALONG!!!
Crowd: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! NINE! TEN!!!!!!!
Deadprez: JACK RIPLEY HOPS DOWN AND IMMEDIATELY CONNECTS WITH A SWIFT KICK TO THE CHEST OF LUCAS JOHNSON WHO IS JUST WRITHING IN PAIN IN THE CORNER— AND JACK RIPLEY CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER KICK THIS TIME ONE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF LUCAS JOHNSON, WHO JUST FALLS TO HIS KNEES!!! AND REALIZING THE OPPORTUNITY IN FRONT OF HIM JACK RIPLEY CHARGES AT LUCAS JOHNSON AND CONNECTS WITH A BEAUTIFUL ENZUIGIRI THAT JUST LEAVES LUCAS JOHNSON FACE FIRST ON THE MAT!
Eve: JACK RIPLEY GOT IN THIS MATCH AND HAS TURNED IT AROUND COMPLETELY!! HIS OVERWHELMING OFFENSE HAS CAUGHT LUCAS JOHNSON BY SURPRISE AND NOW JACK RIPLEY IS SETTING UP FOR IT!!! JACK RIPLEY WANTS LUCAS JOHNSON TO MAKE IT BACK TO HIS FEET SO THAT HE CAN GET THIS MATCH OVER WITH– LUCAS JOHNSON MAKES IT BACK TO HIS FEET AND TURNS AROUND—- DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME!!! KNEE STRAIGHT INTO THE HEAD OF LUCAS JOHNSON THIS MATCH HAS TO BE OVER!!!!!! THE COVER!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: No the pin is broken up last second by James Ranger who just absolutely derails Jack Ripley after connecting with a stiff forearm to the back of the head! James Ranger is not the legal man but nonetheless he isn’t leaving the ring, INSTEAD, HE’S TRYING TO TAKE OUT HIS FRUSTRATIONS ON JACK RIPLEY AND HE’S DOING A DECENT JOB AT IT AS HE DROPS A VICIOUS KNEE STRAIGHT INTO THE SPINE AND BACK OF RIPLEY WHO LETS OUT A SHRIEK OF PAIN! THE REFEREE IS TRYING TO TELL RANGER TO GET OUT OF THE RING OR THE MATCH IS OVER- BUT RANGER ISN’T TRYING TO HEAR THAT AS HE CONTINUES STOMPING AND KICKING AWAY AT THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
Eve: Finally James Ranger makes his way back out of the ring and onto the apron where he awaits a tag from his wounded partner Lucas Johnson– and THE TAG HAS BEEN MADE AND JAMES RANGER GOES RIGHT BACK TO WORK ON THE SURELY INJURED BACK OF JACK RIPLEY DROPPING A HARD ELBOW RIGHT TO THE SPINAL REGION! EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THIS MATCH ARE GOING TO BE FEELING THE SIDE EFFECTS OF IT COME TOMORROW! EVERYONE IS TRYING TO PROVE NOT ONLY TO THEMSELVES BUT TO THEIR PEERS THAT THEY ARE MORE THAN DESERVING TO BE HERE AND THEY’RE ALL PROVING IT HERE TONIGHT! RANGER PICKS RIPLEY UP AND— SUNSET FINIS– NO RIPLEY REVERSES AND SLIDES OFF RANGERS SHOULDERS— RANGER TURNS AROUND AND IS MET WITH… DAYLIGHT SLAYING TIME!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS…THE TEAM OF JACK RIPLEY AND SIERRA BRADFORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: What a match and what an effort from both of these teams as it was an even contest all the way up until the end! But Sierra Bradford and Jack Ripley were just too tall an obstacle for the young James Ranger and Lucas Johnson to overcome!
(‘BxMxC’ by BABYMETAL plays as Sierra and Jack celebrate in the ring as the crowd cheers.)
(The song cuts as Jamie O’Hara and Consuela Rose Ava enter the ring.)
DeadPrez: Jamie and Jack staring at each other in the face as Jamie raises his Answers World Championship high in the air to let everyone know that he’s a fighting champion, and Jack Ripley isn’t fazed by the notion at all as he gets nose to nose with Jamie O’Hara!! And on the other side, Consuela Rose Ava and Sierra Bradford have not taken their eyes off one another!!! Consuela approaches Sierra Bradford and .. gives her– A ROUND OF APPLAUSE!?!?
(‘We Appreciate Power’ by Grimes hits as Consuela Rose Ava and Jamie O’Hara exit the ring and head towards the back, leaving Sierra Bradford stunned and Jack Ripley still eyeing down the Answers World Champion.)
Eve: Mindgames by the EAW Interwire Champion or was she genuinely impressed and satisfied with the performance she saw from her opponent for next week’s Midsummer Massacre FPV!?
DeadPrez: I have no idea, but did you see the intense staredown between Jack Ripley and Jamie O’Hara, I absolutely can not wait for that match- no matter who wins it’s going to be a good one!!! Midsummer Massacre, August 1st, 2020, Jamie O’Hara vs Jack Ripley for the Answers World Championship. Consuela Rose Ava vs Sierra Bradford for the Interwire Championship, only on FPV.
(Commercial for Midsummer Massacre as Jamie O’Hara defends the Answers World Championship against Jack Ripley and Consuela Rose Ava defends the Interwire Championship against Sierra Bradford on the EAW Network next weekend!)
(Showdown returns from commercial break with the camera panning on Eve.)
Eve: Coming up next we have Raven Roberts and Justin Windgate. This is the match I have been waiting for all day. Both Raven and Windgate both were drafted to Showdown this season. Last week Raven dominated Shaker Jones even with the distraction of the BVU and she is showing us a promising season here on Showdown.
Gina Romano: The following contest is set for one fall! Introducing first, hailing from the Motor City Detroit, Michigan. Weighing in at 225 pounds!!! The Xtreme Classic!!! JJJUUUSSTTTTIN WIIIINNNNDDDGGAATTEE!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: That’s right Eve! Justin was on the way to the top of Dynasty, and the blue brand scooped him up. Whoever decided on bringing the Xtreme Classic to Showdown probably made one of the best decisions of their lives. As a fan of Wingate’s ring talent I see him on the rise for more than just a few mid card titles, I see him in contender ship for the EAW Answers World Championship soon and you can quote me on that.
(“Smoke and Drive (Remix)” by Machine Gun Kelly hits as the self distancing small crowd of people as half of them begin to sing along to MGK as fog begins to fill the stage as Justin Windgate steps out onto the stage singing long with the crowd as he shakes himself off as he makes his way to the ring.)
Deadprez: Wow Gavin. Did you hang out with Justin or The 420s during the break? There is no doubt Justin hasn’t overcome his addictions but I see a long road ahead of him just like the recovery during his time away from EAW. Raven here tonight is going to show what a consistent dominating talent she has been since day one.
(Justin makes it half way down the ramp as he takes a fast stride and slides into the ring as be bounces back n forth rope to rope as “Smoke and Drive (Remix)” fades out and ‘In My Bones’ by The Score fades in as the small crowd begins to boo as a few cheers come from one side as Raven walks out onto the stage slowly unzips the the long black trench coat revealing one half of the Unified Tag Team Championship Titles.)
Eve: Easier said than done Gavin. We are seeing a different Raven this season, not that it’s a bad thing, matter of fact I see her as the badass she has always been. I am just glad she isn’t going to take the bullshit from these fans, like she said a few weeks ago, all she is worried about this season is showcasing her talent with a little more attitude.
Gina Romano: And his opponent!! Weighing in at 139 pound, residing out of Atlanta, GA. She is ONE HALF OF THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! THE HUUUUUNTRRRESSSSS!!! RAAAAAVEEN ROOOOBBBBERTS!!!!
(Raven makes her way down the ramp as she slowly makes her way up the steps and stands on the outside of the ropes on the apron. Off mic you can hear her telling Justin to hold the ropes like a gentleman. Justin shakes his head no…Justin proceeds to tell the ref that he isn’t going to do it, that he will need to himself. Ref finally makes his way over to Raven to hold the ropes open for Raven as she steps through and quickly gets up in Justin’s face demanding some respect.)
Deadprez: Raven is pretty feisty tonight and Justin sure the fuck isn’t going to back down.
(Raven shoves Justin in the chest as she quickly turns around and makes her way to the corner as steps up on to the second rope as she unbuckles her belt and raises it high in one arm as the Ref tries to hold Justin back who is pretty pissed over the shove. Raven hopes down from the turnbuckle as she places the title in her corner on the mat. As the ref calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: Justin quickly goes after Raven as she sidesteps into a drop toe hold where Justin barely missed hitting the bottom turnbuckle as she quickly scrambles over his back keeping the leg locked she begins to apply a crossface as Justin quickly reaches out for the ropes. The ref steps in to break the hold but Raven stretches harder back as the ref begins the count. Raven releases the hold at a 3 count as she begins slapping the back of Justin’s head before releasing the hold and getting up. Justin pulls himself up into the seated position giving Raven a dirty ass look before pulling himself fully up into the standing position.
Deadprez: Justin and Raven begin to circle the ring sizing each other up and finally locking in an elbow collar tie up…Raven really struggling with the upper body strength of Justin. Justin finally breaks in and pushes and finally Raven pushes up against the ropes. Justin Has Raven pressed up high above her head against the ropes as he shows a little stalemate he decides to slowly let go. Raven taking the kindness, and uses it as a weakness before gutting him with a kick to the stomach before a strike to the leg then to other leg Raven goes for a spinning back kick but Justin swats her foot away as she keeps her momentum going from the push and comes in with another back kick catching Justin in the mid-section.
Gavin Kirkland: Raven landed that second kick just right, Justin is lawn chaired over gasping for air. Raven goes for a knee lift slamming Justin back into the turnbuckle. Raven goes in for a back elbow but Justin slides out of the way just in time. Justin turns around and plants a superkick right in the chest of Raven as she falls over to the mat. and rolls out under the bottom rope. Justin gets stopped by the ref as he attempts to go through the ropes after her. Just wastes no time and runs the ropes and baseball slides under the bottom rope catching Raven in the back sending her face first into the Plexiglass.
Eve: Justin wasting no time grabbing up Raven to slide her into the ring…No he irish whips her into the ring apron and follows up with a striking knee to the chest of Raven. Justin slides her into the ring as he hopes to one knee and then fully pulls himself up to the apron with the ropes as Raven slowly makes it to her feet. Justin looks for an opportunity as Raven finally makes it to her feet as he leaps up to the top rope springing off into a missile drop kick sending Raven down to the mat. Justin swoops in for the cover hooking one leg.
Eve: Kick out…That’s my girl.
Gavin Kirkland: Raven kicking out at the last second…All that smoke and couldn’t hold it for that last half a second. Justin needs to keep this up and not slow down, once that bird gets her wings spread out it’s all over. Justin with a frustrated look on his face as he gets up and brings Raven to her feet…Raven with an open hand slap across the chest of Justin…Justin attempts for lariat Raven ducks and lands a pale kick to the top of the dome of Justin. Raven grabs Justin by the hand and attempts to whip him across the ring but Justin keeps a hold of Raven’s hand and drags her in for a vicious clothesline flipping her inside out.
Deadprez: OWWwwww! Justin wasting no time after that hard clothesline Raven’s rolls through back to her knees and Superkick by Justin…Justin just connected with that grounded superkick. I hope her pretty face is still attached to that beautiful body after that kick. Raven is knocked out! Justin needs to go for the cover.
Deadprez: Raven manages to kick out. That has to be frustrating as fuck to know you had this match in the bag and she kicks out.
Eve: Justin is just in shock as he looks in disbelief as Raven drags herself up by the ropes. Justin rushes Raven but Raven ducks and pulls down the rope causing Justin to slip over the top rope and tumble to the ground. Raven relentlessly gets herself through the ropes as Justin pushes himself from the ground Raven runs the ropes with a suicide dive through the ropes…WHAT THE…She hit this same move on Shaker last week…Raven just hit the Flight Destroyer to the outside mat.
Gavin Kirkland: Raven is on the hunt as she hops back to the apron and runs the length of the apron as she leaps at a fully standing Windgate as she lands a missile drop kick from the apron sending Justin smashing against the thick panel of the plexiglass. Raven quickly rolls Justin back into the ring wasting no time as she climbs the corner turnbuckle as she gets herself to the top Justin has managed to meet her at the corner as he makes an attempt to climb the corner himself.
Deadprez: Any time two competitors make they’re way to the top of a turnbuckle it never turns out well. Raven slams down a forearm on top of Justin as he makes his way on the bottom rope as Raven continues to rain down punches and forearms to Justin. Justin finally grabs Raven by the boot dragging her down to the second rope sitting down. Justin is at the second rope as both exchange punches as both Raven and Justin both attempt to fight for leverage on the top turnbuckle. Justin looks very unstable as Raven begins unleashing punches and finally pushing Justin from the top rope to his back. Raven gets her balance and flips through the air. Raven’s Wings! Raven’s Wings! She just said fuck it and went for it. Raven hooks a leg…
Eve: Justin barely making the kick out on that. Raven rolls out and stands up waiting for Justin to get to his feet. Justin slowly making his way to his feet as he turns around Raven comes in for the Talon but Justin barely catching it out of the corner of his eye he is able to slip to the side and raven gets hung up in the ropes as Justin slips through the ropes and pops Raven in the chops with a punch that leaves her hanging by her hands as Justin grabs the ropes and pulls himself over the top with an elbow drop sending Raven crashing to the mat.
Deadprez: Justin drags Raven to the middle of the ring and brings her up to her feet and drags her over into a snap mare takeover and runs the ropes with a striking knee to the face. Justin goes for the cover.
Eve: I can’t believe Raven just kicked out…I for sure thought Justin had this in the bag. Justin in disbelief that Raven just kicked from that double knee. Justin heads toward the corner. Justin is looking to put this match away. He might be going up top for that shooting star known as the X-Factor. He has finished off so many opponents in the past with this move.
(Justin gets ready to make the leap to the top of the turnbuckle when a voice over the speakers says “A YO”. The camera pans out to the stage where Jon Kelton is standing at the top of the ramp. Justin takes note as who it is as he keeps his focus on him.)
Gavin Kirkland: What is Jon Kelton doing out here?
Deadprez: Either way I believe he caught the attention of Justin Windgate. Justin goes to turn his attention back to Raven but Raven is standing behind Justin waiting as she jumps and grabs the head of Justin and drops down…CODE BREAKER. Raven quickly runs up the corner and as she waits for Justin to get to his feet…wait she’s going for the moonsault…DOUBLE KNEE. Raven just hit the Aerial Ace. She isn’t going for the cover as she backs up into the corner waiting for Justin to get to his feet as she dashes toward Justin…TALON….This is over Raven goes for the cover..
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“In My Bones” plays once again as Raven rolls off Justin. She slides herself toward the Tag title and picks it up as the ref makes his way over to raise her hands but Raven rips her hand from the ref as she rolls out of the ring as Justin finally sits up staring up at the stage shaking his head.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… ONE-HALF OF THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION…RAVEN ROBERTS!!!!!
Eve: Well folks, what an upset here tonight, and what does Kelton want with Justin Windgate. I gotta give it to my girl Raven though. She is on a row here on Showdown and I think that this new flavor of Raven Roberts has really left a sour taste in the fans mouth.
Gavin Kirkland: I’ll leave a sour taste in Ra…I mean…We can’t take away from the fact that Justin had this match won if it hadn’t been for Kelton’s appearance out here tonight. This Saturday at Midsummer Massacre Raven will be going one on one with Xavier Williams, after what we seen here tonight I surely hope Xavier has his head on straight because Raven is on a warpath and she isn’t taking any mercy.
(The camera opens backstage inside of a medical office within the Performance Center. Dr. Bethany Blue is sitting on top of the desk while Alexis is in a rolling chair next to her on her phone, wearing glasses, which is unusual for her to do so. Both of them seem into their work and not in the mood to be bothered at the moment. Alexis breaks the silence with a grunt and a loud sigh.)
Alexis Chambers: ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! WHY CAN’T PEOPLE JUST WEAR A MASK FOR TWENTY MINUTES WHEN THEY’RE IN A STORE?! WHY IS THERE PEOPLE PROTESTING OVER THIS?!
Dr. Bethany Blue: It’s frustrating, I tell you. It’s been said if we all wore masks for a good four to six weeks, we could have this virus under control, but people don’t wanna listen. It’s frustrating when you dedicate your whole life to this field and people turn a blind eye to me and think I’m wrong and think they’re rebellious for not wearing a mask and saving lives;.
(Both women go quiet for a moment before Alexis sets her phone down and looks up at Bethany.)
Alexis Chambers: Doc, you gon be good to go tonight vs Cage? He’s a tough cookie and we all know what you were put through last week.
Dr. Bethany Blue: Oh, I’ll be fine, don’t worry about me. I know how tough Cage is. I’ve done my research and am aware of the injuries he’s gotten in his career, and I might just exploit them tonight in our match. Don’t worry, last week was bad, but it only made me angrier and I vow to make Jake pay at Midsummer Massacre.
(Alexis begins to scratch her head.)
Alexis Chambers: Gotta admit, I was extremely worried for you last week seeing you in an almost paralyzed state. I know this may sound a bit odd, but I thought for a second you could be a goner in that moment. I never thought I could see myself getting this close to you after the hell we put each other through for months on end, I feel like what happened last week was my fault, there was more I could have done to prevent that from happening to you. I’m very sorry I let that happen and you had to go something like that.
(Dr. Bethany Blue puts her clipboard down on the desk and doesn’t quite know what to say in response. After a few moments, she begins to speak.)
Dr. Bethany Blue: Alexis, I beg of you not to stress over that. It was not your fault and there was nothing you could have done. I NEVER thought Jake and Bronson would stoop as low as they did last week. It makes me sick to my stomach that they found that amusing. Someone is suffering and they’re making a big song and dance about it, pretty much confirming it afterwards on social media. They are two sick individuals who need help even beyond me. I’m a doctor, not a miracle worker.
Alexis Chambers: How in the world did they even get a hold of one of our syringes?
Dr. Bethany Blue: Well……let’s just say I know better now to not let people know about my hiding spots inside my lab coat. Don’t worry though, because I got a brand new lab coat with different pockets to hide my stuff. Let’s just say there’s gonna be no more worries of people finding my stuff.
Alexis Chambers: Well, do you need me to accompany you to the ring tonight? You don’t know if Jake or Bronson is gonna pull some bullshi–CRAP! Sorry! You don’t know if they will pull it again, and you don’t know what will happen with Lethal Consequences having his eye on this match as well.
Dr. Bethany Blue: I really appreciate that, but I think I will be fine. I don’t think Jake has the guts to be anywhere near me right now and pull any more of that bull-sugar seeing how angry I am and what I’m capable of doing to someone who gets me angry. I don’t think he wants me any angrier before Midsummer Massacre. Also, Jake likely doesn’t want to make a screwy decision that ends up costing him with LC watching and have it bite him in the butt later on. Believe me Alexis, I have this covered but I really appreciate the help. If the waters get muddy out there, you know what to do. But for now, this is something I gotta do on my own to prove I’m worthy of being Answers World Champion. I’m gonna do that and you’re gonna take that New Breed Title off that pothead Bronson Daniels. We’re gonna get payback on those cowards We’re gonna take Showdown by storm sister!
(Both women get up and walk near the door. Both women share a hug together before both looking back to the camera.)
Both Alexis Chambers and Dr. Bethany Blue: Karma is a bee-itch!
(The two women laugh at the same time, sharing a nice moment before the camera fades to black.)
(One final commercial break for Midsummer Massacre promoting the fatal-4-way number one contender’s match for the Answers World Championship next week on the EAW Network!)
Gina Romano: The following match tonight’s Main Event and is scheduled for ONE FALL!!! Introducing first…the special commentators for this match.
Deadprez: I guess that’s our que to leave.
Gavin Kirkland: This is bullshit! I want to watch the Doctor wrestle again! Maybe a little more mud…and a lot less top!
Eve: That’s it, we’re going.
(The three of them take off their headphones and place them on the announcers table)
Gina Romano: Hailing from Oakland, California…and here representing the Dynasty Brand….HE IS THE INEVITABLE…LETHAL COOOOOOOOONNNNSEQUEEENNNNCESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!
(‘Friend vs Friend’ by Company Flow pumps through the arena as Lethal Consequences steps out of the entrance way, a smirk on his face. He makes his way down to the announcers table, passing the usual announcers. He sits down at the table and puts on the announcer headphones)
Lethal Consequences: Let’s get this shit show started! Send out my useless announcing partner. Although, I want to hear about how he had two of these bitches hanging off his dick.
(Lethal Consequences’ music ends as the regular announcers stop at the bottom of the entrance ramp, so not to intrude on the next entrance)
Gina Romano: And his partner in commentary crime…hailing from Venice, California…THE INDUSTRY RULER…JAKE SMMMMMMMMMMMMMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
(‘War’ by Grandson fills the arena as boos rain down heavy from the minimal crowd that was allowed in. Jake Smith steps out of the back and smiles, blowing kisses out to the women in the crowd. He slowly walks down the entrance way…only to be stopped by Gavin Kirkland)
Gavin Kirkland (off mic): YOU ARE MY IDOL! TEACH ME YOUR WAYS!!!
Lethal Consequences: You’ve gotta be fuckin’ kidding me.
(Jake rolls his eyes and pushes past Gavin, making his way towards the announcer’s table. Meanwhile, all three of the regular announcers make their way up and through the entrance into the back.)
(Jake grabs another set of headphones, placing them on his head.)
Jake Smith: Can you believe that shit? It’s like dude, I know I’m cool…get off my jock.
(He sits down at the opposite end of the table as Lethal Consequences, still just a few feet apart.)
Lethal Consequences: Yeah, well calm yourself down there lover boy…we got a match to call.
Jake Smith: Cage is going to tear Bethany a new one…right next to the one I tore her.
Lethal Consequences: Oh dude, get over yourself.
(The music cuts out as Gina Romano raises the microphone to her lips.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first…hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada…weighing in at two-hundred and thirty pounds…a two-thousand and seventeen Hall of Fame Member…the Edgecrusher…the Judas…he is EXPLICIT CONTENT…CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(‘Smells like Teen Spirit’ by Nirvana fills the arena as Cage steps forcefully out of the entrance to a rather loud mixed reaction. Dressed in a black vest and black tights, he looks over the crowd, shaking his head. He slowly makes his way down to the ring, looking at the fans on each side of the aisle as he passes them.)
Lethal Consequences: I was quite happy to see him break Ronan Malosi at last week’s Showdown.
Jake Smith: Well I have a feeling he is about to take out another used piece of garbage.
(He enters the ring under the ropes and walks over to the ropes overlooking the announcer’s table.)
Cage (off mic): Don’t either of you get any fucking ideas or I will be the living shit out of you too. I’ll make sure you never make it to Midsummer Massacre.
Jake Smith: Tough words from a guy who is about to beat up a woman. Was TNT too busy?
(Cage’s music cuts out)
Cage (off mic): We’ll see how funny you are when you don’t have your little pot smokin’ friend in the ring to save you.
(The sounds of a heartbeat echo the arena. Suddenly it flatlines as the chords of ’Bad Medicine’ by Bon Jovi fills the air.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent …from Boca Raton, Florida…weighing in at one-hundred and twenty-five pounds…DOCTORRRRRR BETHANYYYYYYYYY BLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEE!
(The lights go out and a lone spotlight shines down onto the entrance way. Dr. Bethany Blue steps out of the back, dressed in her shiny wrestling gear and her Doctor’s coat. She looks out to the crowd who are giving her an extremely mediocre pop. She doesn’t get the chance to roll her eyes this time as she looks and sees Jake Smith sitting at the announcers table)
Lethal Consequences: She’s got her eyes set on you, brother.
Jake Smith: She still can’t get enough of me, what can I say.
(Dr. Blue quickly walks down the entrance ramp, taking her coat off in the process. She walks around the side of the ring to where Gina Romano is.)
Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic): Can you…um…hold this for me?
(Gina shakes her head yes, to which Dr. Blue holds out her coat…but then pulls it back. She reaches into the pocket of the coat and pulls out some hand sanitizer, quickly squirting some on Gina’s outstretched hand)
Blue (Off mic): Rub it in.
(Gina does as she is told, rubbing the hand sanitizer in, before offering her hands again. Reluctantly, and keeping her eyes on Jake, she hands Gina the coat.)
Lethal Consequences: Just get in the God damn ring already!
(Dr. Blue walks over to the side of the ring and quickly flips up the apron, looking underneath the ring suspiciously. When she sees no one, she drops the apron down and slides in under the bottom rope.)
Jake Smith: See, that is the problem with her. She just can’t let anything go.
Lethal Consequences: Well your friend did stab her in the neck last week.
Jake Smith: He was just trying to help her relax.
(Dr. Blue stands to her feet and looks at Cage, giving him a grossed out look. She walks over to the ref and shows her hands, palms up. When he imitates her, she quickly squirts some hand sanitizer in his hands too)
(She turns and walks over to Cage, only for Cage to grab the bottle of hand sanitizer and chuck it into the crowd)
Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic): Well that was rude!
Jake Smith: Fuck her and that damn hand sanitizer. You know much she made me use that shit?
Lethal Consequences: I’m surprised she didn’t try to use it as lubricant.
Jake Smith: Well, actually-
(DING! DING! DING!)
Lethal Consequences: Cage jumps forward and grabs an unsuspecting Dr. Blue by her hair and pulls her over to the corner. He pulls her head back…AND SLAMS IT INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! Dr. Blue stumbles back and Cage grabs her from behind…GERMAN SUPLEX and the Doctor goes rolling out of the ring.
Jake Smith: Oh, I’m loving this already!
Ref (Off mic): ONE
Jake Smith: Bethany looks up at Cage, who is sitting in the corner of the opposite side of the ring.
Lethal Consequences: Dr. Blue climbs up onto the apron. She grabs the rope and slingshots her way up to the top rope…and she jumps…CAGE IS UP…MISSLE DROPKICK! Cage stumbles back against the ropes as Dr. Blue is quick up to her feet. She bounces off the ropes, comes flying at Cage…CROSSBOD-CAGE CATCHES HER!!!
Jake Smith: She likes it rough.
Lethal Consequences: Can you do some of the damn talking? My mouth is getting dry from all this shit.
Jake Smith: Bethany is in a pickle here. Cage walks into the middle of the ring…BACKbreaker…damn that hurts. Cage drops down and hooks the Doc’s leg.
Jake Smith: Kickout by Ms. Mud. Cage up onto his feet…HARD swift kick into Bethany’s ribs.
Lethal Consequences: Fight through it, Doc. I’m sure you’re going to need to build up some sorta tolerance before next week.
Jake Smith: Cage pulls back…ANOTHER hard kick to the ribs. He moves over her, grabbing her arms…he lifts his right boot…IDIOT STAMPEDE!!!
Cage (Off mic): IDIOT! IDIOT! IDIOT! IDIOT!
Jake Smith: Well there goes that pret-…I’m lying…that medioc-…shit, I’m still giving her too much credit.
Lethal Consequences: Will shut the fuck up already about that? Holy shit, call the goddamn match already. We know you banged her, we know you dumped her…holy fuck!
Jake Smith: Well aren’t you just a bowl of fucking sunshine.
Lethal Consequences: The Doc looks like she’s got a cut on her lip as she rolls onto her side and is slightly bleeding onto the mat. Cage paces around her a few times before grabbing her and pulling her to her feet. But there’s still life in her. She throws a shoulder into the gut of Cage…she stands up…hard spinning kick to Cage’s back causing him to bend backwards. Blue grabs him in an inverted facelock…GRADE C2!!! GRADE C2!!! Dr. Blue with the cover…
Jake Smith: And easy kickout by the Hall of Famer. Bethany is up, she bounces off the ropes…but Cage is up and waiting for her…he hops over her! Bethany hits the next ropes and bounces back…CAGE WITH A CLOTHES-NO! BETHANY DUCKS UNDERNEATH. Doctor Blue hits the ropes again and comes flying back at Cage…she hops up into the air…wraps her legs around Cage’s neck…SPINS AROUND…HURRICANRANA AND CAGE GOES FLYING OUT OF THE RING THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE HERE IN FRONT OF US!!!
Lethal Consequences: You’re lady is showing off some agility, boy. You missin’ that yet?
Jake Smith: Fuck off.
Lethal Consequences: The Doc climbs outside onto the apron…she jumps…KNEE DROP TO CAGE’S CHEST. I think she just caved that son of a bitch in!
Jake Smith: Hey Gina, can I see the Doc’s coat?
Gina Romano (Off mic): No.
Jake Smith: Just for a moment.
Gina Romano (Off mic): I said, no.
Jake Smith: I just need to get something from one of her pockets. You can hold it and just let me reach-
Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic): SHE SAID NO!
(Bethany slaps an unsuspecting Jake Smith causing him to reel back in his chair, causing it to tip and drop him onto his back.)
Lethal Consequences: Now that was some funny shit.
Ref (Off mic): Get back in the ring!
Lethal Consequences: The Doc assists Cage to his feet and pushes him back into the ring, quickly following behind him.
(Jake finally gets up and sits down correctly in his chair)
Jake Smith: Did you see what she just did to me? That’s abuse!
Lethal Consequences: Cage onto his knees trying to get back up, Bethany is back at him…ENZIGU-CAGE DUCKS THE KICK AND DR. BLUE DROPS ONTO HER STOMACH. Cage holds onto that first foot…he’s trying to grab her other leg for a sharpshooter…but the Doc is wriggling around on the ground. She kicks Cage off…then flips up onto her feet…Cage comes flying at her for a clothesline…but she ducks underneath again. Dr. Blue hops up onto the ropes…Moonsault…BUT CAGE CATCHES HER WITH HER LEGS IN THE AIR! He shifts his arms…PILEDRIVER!
JakeSmith: Cage with the cover.
JakeSmith: What is the ref doing?
Lethal Consequences: He’s calling for Cage to get up. He’s pointing at one of Dr. Blue’s feet that is on the ropes.
JakeSmith: Lucky bitch.
Lethal Consequences: Cage pulls the himself up using the ropes…AND HE LANDS A HARD STOMP ONTO THE DOC’S KNEES!!! He reaches down and puts her leg back on the rope…AND ANOTHER HARD STOMP!!!
Jake Smith: WRECK HER!!!
Lethal Consequences: Cage grabs the Doc by her hair…pulling her to her feet. He whips her into the closest corner, Dr. Blue hitting her back against the turnbuckle. Cage comes charging…ELBOW TO THE FACE BY DR. BLUE! Cage stumbles back…Dr. Blue looks prepared…TJD!!! TEMPORO- FUCK IT! TJD!!! TJD!!!
Jake Smith: Get up, Cage! Wait…what is she doing?
Lethal Consequences: It seems Cage is bleeding from a cut in his lip, so the Doc is checking it out. She is motioning to Gina Romano. Gina is rummaging through the Doctor’s coat…
Jake Smith: Can I help?
Gina Romano (Off mic): NO!
Lethal Consequences: Gina pulls out some box of bandages and throws it to the Doc. Dr. Blue catches it and pulls out a…band-aid? She bends down and puts it on Cage’s split lip.
Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic): I don’t want to be getting any of your blood on me. We don’t need any more opportunities for cross contamination.
Jake Smith: See the rules she breaks for twelve bucks?
Lethal Consequences: Jake…Cage opens his eyes…AND GRABS THE BOX OF BAND-AIDS. He is quick to his feet and CHUCKS the box into the crowd, like he did the sanitizer.
Dr. Bethany Blue (Off mic): You know these supplies aren’t cheap, right? And this is the thanks I get?
Jake Smith: Cage is quick…grabs Dr. Blue by the throat. Look at her eyes buggin’ out! HA!
Lethal Consequences: Cage forces her over to the ropes. He lifts her up for the choke-NO! She grabs the ropes with both hands, clinging to them for dear life.
Jake Smith: It looks like he wants to slam her out of the ring.
Lethal Consequences: He lets go of her neck, but whips her to the opposite side of the ring. Dr. Blue comes bouncing back…Cage bends over…the Doc’s momentum carries her onto his back…BACK BODY DROP AND DR. BLUE GOES FLYING OUT OF THE R-NO! SHE GRABBED THE ROPE!!! She lands on the apron! Cage turns around…AND DR. BLUE SENDS A SHOULDER THROUGH THE SECOND ROPE INTO HIS GUT! Cage doubled over in pain. The Doc uses the ropes, slingshots her way up onto the top rope…jumps onto Cage’s back…he falls backwards…ROLL-UP PIN WITH DR. BLUE HUGGING CAGE’S LEGS!!!
Jake Smith: And Cage with the kickout. Both of them are quick up to their feet. Bethany charges Cage…hip toss. Betty-Bet back up…another hip toss. She’s back up again…ANOTHER HIP TOSS. Little Betty-Boop up once more…she charges Cage…slides underneath Cage’s outreached arms…pops up as he turns around…she jumps and hooks her legs around his neck again…HURRI-WAIT…CAGE REVERSES IT AND LIFTS HERE INTO THE AIR…SIT-DOWN POWERBOMB ON THE DOC!!!
Lethal Consequences: Cage with the lazy cover.
Jake Smith: Dr. Blue seems to be running out of steam, but she kicks out to survive a little longer! Typical Bethany…she just doesn’t know when to go down.
Lethal Consequences: Jesus, shut up. Cage up to his feet, but he is leaning into the corner, watching Dr. Blue slowly crawl over to the ropes and using them to help her up. It looks as if that leg is still bothering her. Cage charges her…BUT SHE PULLS DOWN THE ROPES AND HE GOES FLYING OUT OF THE RING INSTEAD!!! Cage crashes hard on the outside and is laying with his legs up against the barrier. The crowd is banging on the plexiglass.
Jake Smith: Cage is slowly getting up as Bethany is catching her breath on the inside of the ring, feeling at the small cut on her lip.
Lethal Consequences: Cage to his feet, wobbling a little bit. He gets to the apron and rolls in, wincing as his back touches the ma-you know what…I’m getting tired of this shit. This needs to end now.
(Lethal Consequences throws off his headphones.)
Jake Smith: What the hell are you doing? Lethal Consequences is walking towards the ring. Bethany is still in her corner, watching as Cage pulls himself to his feet.
Lethal Consequences: (Off mic): What the hell are you doing playing cat and mouse? Why don’t you just end this already?
Cage (Off mic): Shut the fuck up and get back down to the announcers table.
Lethal Consequences: (Off mic): Don’t you tell me what to do, you overhyped piece of shit!
Jake Smith: Lethal up onto the apron as he and Cage are inches away from each other.
Cage (Off mic): Let me end this bitch and I’ll take care of you next, sound good?
Lethal Consequences: (Off mic): I don’t think you’re even going to be able to end her, let alone get to me…you dumb motherfucker.
(Lethal Consequences turns herself around as a groggy Cage shifts his focus back to Dr. Bethany Blue.)
Jake Smith: Wait…Bethany is up…she is slowly walking over to Cage…Cage goes to get Bethany to her feet, but … CODE BLUE!!! CODE BLUE TO THE CHEST OF CAGE AND CAGE DROPS TO THE MAT!!!! Dr. Bethany drops and hooks the leg…
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Jake Smith: Ah hell, Bethany won.
Gina Romano: And your WINNER…DOCTOR BETHANY BLLLLLLLUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEE!!!
Jake Smith: I can’t let them have all the fun now!
(Jake Smith throws off his headphones and in a flash reaches over and grabs the Doctor’s coat from Gina, before she could react. He starts rummaging through the coat as Dr. Bethany is having her hand raised in the ring. Meanwhile, Gina Romano runs over and throws on a headset.)
Gina Romano: Dr. Blue, I’m sorry! He took your coat!
(Jake pulls out a syringe and throws the coat down. How the fuck he keeps finding the syringe is beyond Bethany. :wow: )
Gina Romano: Jake Smith has a needle! He slides into the ring behind Dr. Blue. He charges her…BUT SHE TURNS AROUND! DR. BLUE WAS READY FOR JAKE!!! She lands a hard kick to the gut which causes Jake to drop the needle. Dr. Blue grabs him…BROKEN WINGS!!! BROKEN WINGS!!! SHE USED JAKE’S OWN FINISHER ON HIM!!! OH MY GOD DID YOU SEE THAT!!!
(Loud pop from the crowd.)
Gina Romano: Dr. Bethany quick up to her feet, yelling at Jake. HA! She just spit on him! Wait…she looks up…Lethal Consequences is in the ring with her now…they are both staring each other down. This is intense! But we are out of time! Tune in next week for Midsummer Massacre where the four of these individuals will face each other for the Number One Answers World Championship Contender spot!
(We see Dr. Bethany Blue staring at Lethal Consequences as Jake and Cage lay broken around them.)
