( EAW Intro plays )
(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar starts up, cueing the beginning of Saturday Night Showdown! As the music plays throughout the speaker system of the TD Garden, the camera pans over the raucous fans in the audience, filling the arena to capacity. As the camera collects it’s last few shots of the crowd from different angles. We transition to the commentary desk where Deadprez is sitting by Gavin Kirkland, who is apparently ‘fishing’. )
Deadprez: For the third day in a row EAW has completely taken the TD Garden over! We are sold out for the third day in a row, with a Sunday night edition of the longest running weekly program in the history of EAW, WELCOME TO SHOWDOWN!!! Deadprez here, along with the man that ya baby mama Stans, Gavin Kirkland!
Gavin Kirkland: Wow wow wow is it a lovely summer evening or what?! Boston has turned into PAWGston with all of the fishy fish fishies in the crowd!
Deadprez: The whattie whatties?
Gavin Kirkland: Fishy fishy fish!
Deadprez: We’re right off the heels from one of the most brutal and chaotic nights in the 12 year history of this company! You can still practically taste all the blood that was shed last night on Voltage’s epic Marquee event, “BLOODSPORT”, which was nothing more than a success!
Gavin Kirkland: Congratulations to our Voltage friends on an amazing show! Certainly our EAW medics are working overtime!
Deadprez: We may need them back out here tonight, because tonight one of our feature matches includes Mark Michaels going up against Xander Payne, with Myles on commentary!
Gavin Kirkland: I’m ready for Myles to beat the SHIT out of fatty mcfatso for what he did to the poor lad at Midsummer Massacre!
Deadprez: In the main event, The Visual Prophet enters the shark tank, as he collides with Lucas Johnson! Both former New Breed Champions in this company, and both men looking to end a wild weekend with a big finish.
Gavin Kirkland: We can expect a lot of developments tonight in general, I’m personally excited for the Bozo Victims Unit coming tonight, featuring the GOAT himself, Ahren Fournier! But speaking of developments, we’re going to hear from The Goddess of Showdown, the grand semen demon herself, CAMERON ELLA AVA :heart_eyes:
(“ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli hits the speakers as the crowd in the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts erupts in a standing ovation. Cameron Ella Ava walks out through the curtain as she smiles as the crowd. She embraces the crowd and takes in the scenery.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…PLEASE WELCOME AT THIS TIME… CAAAAMMMMMMEEERRRRROOOOOOONNNNN ELLLLLLAAAAAAAAA AAAAAVVVVAAAAAAA!!!
Deadprez: At Midsummer Massacre, Cameron Ella Ava teamed with Jamie O’Hara in a wonderful effort to defeat what was left of The Wildcards. There have been rumors at the plans at these two ranging from going after the Answers World Championship or Unified Tag Team Championships.
Gavin Kirkland: No doubt that those two could give Constance Blevins and Minerva run for their money, but it’s quite interesting to see out here alone. I’m wondering if Cameron has her own intentions as we head towards Territorial Invasion.
(The camera pans to Cameron Ella Ava already in the ring as she retrieves a microphone from the timekeeper. Cameron takes in the cheers again as “ULTRAnumb” dies down.)
Cameron Ella Ava: What’s up, Boston?
(The crowd pops at the mention of their hometown!)
Cameron Ella Ava: Ever since putting the final nail in the coffin with The Wildcards, people have been going up to Jamie and me about what to do next. With me having a victory over Constance Blevins and him having a victory over Minerva, the logical thing would have been to pursue the Tag Team Championships. No doubt that we could step into the tag team division and take it for ourselves. I love teaming with Jamie. Standing alongside him and providing him with the partner that he rightfully deserves would be amazing.
Cameron Ella Ava: Do you know what else sounds fantastic? Me continuing my mission to go after the Answers World Championship. If there is anyone good at making the Chairman scream like a bitch, it’s me. Not to toot my own horn, but I should have won the World Championship a long time ago. I should have been the woman to make history by being the first to capture a male World Championship. Sadly, that got taken away from me. It’s nothing that I can do about it. My focus could quickly go to chasing for the Answers World Championship, but for some reason, I’m getting steered in a different direction. You guys know me, I’m always looking for things that pique my interest. I am never denying my opportunity to make history and add more accomplishments to my resume. A woman who has already accomplished so much, but I want more. I’m an Ava; we always want more. More opportunities and accomplishments.
Cameron Ella Ava: We want to leave our mark in this company and have an ever-lasting legacy. Everyone in this company has those same intentions. It doesn’t make me unique or different. Every division that I stepped foot in, I have made it my bitch. I have reigned as champion. Over the past few years, I’ve gotten much shit for having aspirations that extend outside of the women’s division, but I can’t help it. I can’t help it that I’ve gathered every main championship in the women’s division. People have forgotten that I’m a former two-time Vixens Champion and Women’s World Champion. Looking at my accomplishments in the women’s division, what’s stopping me from stepping into the division and reigning supreme over every female Elitist? What’s stopping me from becoming Universal Women’s Champion? What’s stopping me from being the woman to capture every Women’s Title in EAW history? I’m aware that Kassidy Heart and Serena Bennett are going to be clashing at Operation: Doomsday next weekend. Despite what they think of me, I wish them all the luck in the world. I hope they steal the show and give each other hell. I’m looking ahead towards Territorial Invasion. It doesn’t matter who stands as Universal Women’s Champion because I’m next in line.
(The crowd goes in shock in that announcement. Cameron Ella Ava has a determined look on her face. You can tell that she’s not joking whatsoever. She is serious in her intentions at persuing the Universal Women’s Championship.)
Cameron Ella Ava: Does it look like I’m playing? There’s no doubt that I can stand in that women’s division and be the face of it. That’s the star power that Cameron Ella Ava possesses; that’s the power I hold over these women. Do these women think that they should be in my position? They think that they’re better than me. They can stay mad. I don’t give a fuck what they think of me. It’s not going to stop me from adding another title to my resume. Serena and Kassidy, there’s no need to look for a contender for Territorial Invasion. That’s going to be me. If you want to prove that you’re deserving of being Universal Women’s Champion, go one-on-one against The Goddess. Regardless of who’s holding that title, I’ll be waiting for my answer in two weeks. I don’t want you answering my challenge on Dynasty. I want you to get your ass to Showdown and meet me face-to-face. I’m not playing.
(Cameron Ella Ava drops the microphone as a “thud” sound gets heard. “ULTRAnumb” begins to play through the speakers once again as Cameron exits the ring. She feels confident that Universal Women’s Champion is going to accept her challenge. I mean, who wouldn’t?)
Deadprez: Cameron Ella Ava has laid out the challenge! She doesn’t care who walks out as Universal Women’s Champion; she is next in line. Can she even do that?
Gavin Kirkland: She’s The Goddess, Deadprez! :wow: She can do whatever she wants around here! #GoddessesOnly
(The last shot is of Cameron Ella Ava amping the crowd up before it fades to a commercial break.)
(Commercial break for Operation: Doomsday featuring Universal Women’s Champion Kassidy Heart and challenger Serena Bennett.)
(“Confident (Nightcore Version)” by Demi Lovato hits as Io Ishimori comes out to a mixed reaction as she makes her way to the ring looking at the surrounding around her with only one goal on her mind which is to win.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SET FOR ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST….FROM OSAKA, JAPAN…WEIGHING IN AT ONE HUNDRED AND FOURTEEN POUNDS…..”THE QUEEN OF GOTHS”….IIIOOOOO IISSSHIIIMMOORRRII!!!!
Deadprez: Io looking for another win to move her career forward. She was impressive last week and let’s see if she can get the job done tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: She still has to get rid of that cat.
Deadprez: Seriously?! Last week you brought her cat up for no reason at all and here you are doing it again! You leave Yoshi out of this!
(“Confident” is replaced by “War” by Dance With The Dead hits and Santo comes out to dead silence from the crowd as he walks from the gorilla position to the ring.)
Gina Romano: AND HER OPPONENT…FROM DEATH VALLEY, CALIFORNIA, WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED POUNDS…”THE SAINT OF DEATH”…..SSAAANNNNTTTOOO MMMUEERRRRTTEEE!!!!
Deadprez: This crowd has the same reaction I do. I don’t know what to think of this man especially after what he did to his tag team partner Mammoth last week. We don”t know much about him but one thing we learned last week is he shows ZERO remorse.
Gavin Kirkland: If I ever run into this guy on the street you for damn sure know I’m runnin in the opposite direction.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: And we’re underway here. This should be a unique matchup with their styles. And now both competitors lock up in the center of the ring…and Santo shoves her halfway across the ring using his weight advantage and now Santo is taunting Io to bring it!
Gavin Kirkland: And now Io carefully steps to the center of the ring and Santo tries to catch her off guard going for a clothesline but Io ducks underneath and is throwing kicks to the side of Santo and Santo is trying to scramble to find space as Io is continuing to kick him and now Io pushes Santo into the corner and now Io irish whips Santo to the opposite corner but WOAH Santo leaps over the turnbuckle on the apron and now Io charges at him looking to spear him off the apron but Santo catches her with a kick right to her face! Did you hear that?! And now Santo leaps over the rope with a Sunset flip looking for the pin but Io rolls through it and she’s on her feet now and she delivers a front dropkick to the seated Santo! Io lifts up Santo now and has him in a bulldog position but Santo turns it into a back suplex!
Deadprez: Santo now hops on top of Io and is throwing hard right hands and Io is trying to cover up! I guess that intensity and aggressiveness we saw from him last week carried over to this week and the referee is trying to create separation and he finally does as Santo stands up and walks to a corner holding his hands up. And now Santo walks to Io again and grabs her leg while she’s down but Io kicks Santo in his face! And now she pushes off Santo with her feet and now Santo bounces from the corner and Io hits a drop toe hold on Santo and she quickly runs to the ropes and Santo is on one knee and she delivers a knee strike right to the face of Santo! She covers Santo!
Deadprez: Santo gets his shoulder up! Io is back up to her feet thinking of what to do next in this match and she picks up Santo by the head but Santo drives Io backwards and both her and him go tumbling to the outside floor from the middle rope! Santo may have landed awkwardly as he’s holding the side of his neck! Santo is up to his feet a tad bit quicker than io and now he drives Io back first into the Spanish announce table. And now he grabs Io by her head and slams her face first into the Spanish announce table!
Spanish announcer: NO POR FAVOR NO!!
Gavin Kirkland: Santo grabs Io and places her slowly in the ring while Io stands on the outside and he looks up to the top rope from the outside and he climbs the apron and hops on the top rope and he is looking at the downed Io in the ring but Io suddenly rises to her feet and throws herself on the rope causing Santo to lose his balance on the top rope! Santo is in pain down low and now Io goes up to the top rope with him and is setting up for superplex but Santo is blocking it! Santo is throwing body shots to Io’s stomach and she lets go of her grip and now Santo positions Io’s body up…AND HURRICANRANA FROM THE TOP ROPE FROM SANTO!! SANTO WITH THE COVER!!
Deadprez: IO KICKS OUT OF IT!! And Santo is pulling himself up with the ropes because that did some damage to him as well and now he waits for Io to turn around and IS LOOKING FOR THE SUPERKICK!! BUT IO CATCHES HIS FOOT! IIO SPINS SANTO AROUND AND LEAPS UP HIGH IN THE AIR AND CONNECTS WITH A METEORA! SHE’S BACK TO HER FEET QUICKLY AS IS SANTO JUST A FEW SECONDS LATER AND SHE TURNS AROUND SANTO AND LOOKING TO HIT THE LAST DAY!! SHE HAS IN POSITION BUT SANTO THROWS AN ELBOW TO SIDE OF IO’S FACE AND SHE TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE WALKING INTO A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!!!
Gavin Kirkland: SANTO NOW LOOKING FOR THE TORNADO DDT BUT IO THROWS SANTO WHILE IN MID AIR STOMACH FIRST ON THE TOP ROPE! SANTO IS JUST HANGING ON THE ROPES IN THE PAIN AND NOW IO RUNS TO THE ROPE NOW HITS A DROPKICK RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF SANTO’S FACE AND SANTO COLLAPSES TO THE MAT! IO DOESN’T GO FOR THE COVER THOUGH AS IF SHE KNOWS THAT WON’T BE ENOUGH AS SHE’S LOOKING AT HER SURROUNDINGS AND SHE NOTICES SANTO IS ON BOTH KNEES AND SHE RUNS AND IS LOOKING FOR THE FATAL ENDING!! IT CONNECTS!! NATURAL SELECTION CONNECTS! BUT SANTO IS SMART HERE AS HE ROLLS UNDERNEATH THE BOTTOM ROPE NEARBY! IO IS TRYING TO DRAG SANTO AWAY FROM THE BOTTOM ROPE BUT HE’S TRYING TO HOLD ON WITH WHAT STRENGTH HE HAS LEFT! IO NOW JUST GIVES UP AND LIFTS UP SANTO BY HIS HAIR BUT SANTO GRABS IO’S HEAD AND HE DROPS TO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR CAUSING IO TO SPRINGBOARD OFF THE ROPE TO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND NOW SANTO TRYING TO SHAKE THE COBWEBS FROM THAT FATAL ENDING LEAPS THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AND HITS A TORNADO DDT! BUT HE DOESN’T GO FOR THE COVER AS HE’S TOO EXHAUSTED TO BUT HE IS TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF UP AND HE FINALLY DOES!!!
Deadprez: SANTO IS WAITING FOR IO TO GET TO HER FEET AND NOW HE CHARGES!! THE SLINGBLADE CONNECTS ON IO!! SANTO CAN TASTE VICTORY AS HE TURNS AROUND THE STUNNED IO AND- IO TURNS IT INTO A SMALL PACKAGE PIN!!
Gavin Kirkland: OH IO ALMOST GOT HIM THERE!! BOTH ARE UP TO THEIR FEET HERE AND BOTH HIT A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE ON ONE ANOTHER!! IT’S JUST A RACE TO SEE WHO CAN GET TO THEIR FEET FIRST AND SANTO SEEMS TO BE ON HIS FEET AS IO IS STILL PULLING HERSELF UP WITH HER ROPES NEAR THE CORNER AND SANTO WAITS FOR HER TO TURN AROUND IN THE CORNER AND HE RUNS AND LEAPS AT IO IN THE CORNER BUT IO AVOIDS DISASTER AT THE VERY LAST POSSIBLE MOMENT! AND IO BRINGS HIM IN THE CENTER OF THE RING AND GOING FOR BLACK LOTUS!! BUT SANTO SLIPS OUT OF IT AND IO TURNS AROUND AND RUNS INTO A SUPERKICK!!! SANTO FOLLOWS IT UP NOW WITH THE DEATH NOTE!! THE PUMPHANDLE HALF NELSON DRIVER CONNECTS! WILL THIS BE ENOUGH TO PUT IO AWAY HERE?!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(War” by Dance With The Dead hits as Santo stands and gets his hand raised.)
Gina Romano: HERE IS YOUR WINNER….SSSANNTTTOOO MMMMUEERRRTTEEE!!!!
Deadprez: Santo gets the win here tonight in a hard fought battle. Take nothing away from Io Ishimori either in this match but Santo was the better competitor tonight.
( Camera transitions elsewhere. )
Voiceover: In the briminal justice system, dickeating based offenses are considered especially heinous in Elite Answers Wrestling, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are known as an elite squad known as the Bozo Victims Unit. These are their stories.
“TELL US WHAT WE WANNA KNOW!”
( Open up to an interrogation room, where Detective Biggums is hunched over the table standing across from none other than Ahren Fournier, who is wearing prada and a fox fur scarf with Jennipurr sitting in his lap. From the window we see Detective Ty, Detective Assums and Detective SKabler watching from the observatory room. )
Detective Biggums: Tell us who is responsible for that trash ass, dickeating Top 50 Elitists list.
Ahren Fournier: Meh. No clue.
( Detective Biggums bangs on the table. )
Detective Biggums: IMA ASK YOU AGAIN! WHERE WAS YOU ON THE NIGHT OF AUGUST 5TH WHEN THIS BUM ASS LIST CAME OUT? There’s NO WAY you wasnt involved b look where the fuck they got you ranked.
( Biggums slides the list back over to Ahren Fournier, and we see a viral Top 50 EAW Elitists list going around as followed:
1. Mr. DEDEDE
3. Ahren Fournier
4. Visual Prophet
5. Kassidy Heart
6. Malcolm Jones
7. Noah Reigner
8. Vic Venom
9. Serena Bennett
10. Jamie O’Hara
50. Chris Elite. )
Detective Biggums: They deadass got Visual Prophet at number 4 like he didn’t get smoked at the EAW draft. Cuz been in EAW for like 4 months and they got him ranked so fucking high. :mjlol: And who the fuck is Vic Venom anyway no disrespect but I don’t even know who that is :dahell:
Ahren Fournier: I know right? Such a poor list. Ahren Fournier is far too low on it. The rest of it seems perfectly fine though.
( Detective Biggums tosses his notes up into the air and is getting ready to assault Ahren Fournier. Detective Ty quickly walks in the room, looking to stabilize the situation. )
Detective Biggums: This muthafucka keep playing games with me b.
Detective Ty: I know, that’s what we expected Mike. You’re taking this whole “bad cop” thing a little too far. Listen I don’t know if you’ve seen When They See Us but there are much more practical, reasonable approaches to interrogating suspects and getting them to say what we need to say.
Detective Biggums: OK then like what.
( Detective Ty pulls out a 9mm Glock 43, and immediately points it at Ahren’s head. Jennipurr jumps off of Ahrens lap, and Ahren raises his hands completely bewildered. )
Detective Biggums: A fucking yo
Detective Ty: LISTEN ASSHOLE.
Ahren Fournier: What the actual fuck???
Detective Ty: Just admit it, you wrote the list, you’re not an ally of ours at all! There’s no fucking coincidence they have you as the third best in the game while SKabler is dead last, you and him are at the same point in your careers, just admit it. The jig is up. CONFESS! NOW!!!!
Ahren Fournier: I’ve already said it a million times, I didn’t make the stupid list!
( Detective Ty cocks the gun. )
Detective Biggums: Fam
Detective Ty: Don’t lie to me you son of a bitch! I’ll go full Tommy from Power on you in a fucking minute! TRY ME YOU PRICK! TRY ME!!!!!
Detective SKabler (over the speaker from the observatory room): Ty put the damn gun down you edgy ass caucasian it’s never that serious :dahell: Its a top 50 list a lot of these bozos dickeat worse every single day of the week you don’t see us putting a gun to all of they heads :dahell:
( Detective Ty mutters, and uncocks the gun before putting it down on the table and walking out of the room. Detective Biggums looks to Detective SKabler through the window. )
Detective Biggums: That’s the last time we letting the white boy keep the hammer on him. They don’t know how to act just look at all the fucking mass shootings that be going on.
( Detective Assums enters the interrogation room and slowly approaches Ahren with a look of lust in her eyes, swaying her hips as she moves closer to him. )
Detective Assums: We’re really sorry about our friend, he can be a little out of it sometimes.
Ahren Forunier: The guy’s out of his mind. Can I get out of here now? It’s Jennipurrs nap time.
Detective Assums: Oh hunny.. I was hoping you could stay a little while longer.
( Detective Assums disrobes of her detective overcoat and shows off her eye-popping Police themed lingere outfit. )
Ahren Fournier: *Sigh* No thanks.
Detective Assums: I find that it’s much easier for people to discuss their true feelings when they get to know each other. Why don’t you and I get…acquainted with each other. 😉
Ahren Fournier: No believe me I would, but you’re a bargain bin Kassidy Heart, which says a lot considering Kassidy Heart is a bargain bin version of what I’d want in an acquaintance.
Detective Assums: (standing behind Ahren, massaging his shoulders) I know you don’t really mean that 😉
Detective Biggums: Oh hell no if you don’t get the hell away from cuz right now, just stop it you embarrassing yourself he obviously don’t prefer your type. He prefers men how do you think he traveled the world with Kassidy Heart for 7 months and never smashed once. I woulda been raw dogged but I guess maybe in another life who knows, until then I’ll have to settle for you :mjcry:
( Detective Assums rolls her eyes and picks back up her overcoat. Detective SKabler enters the interrogation room and sits across from Ahren. )
Detective SKabler: You know Ahren you’re a real tough nut to crack pause. I’m sure you and I can reason with one another and come to an understanding. We both know the dickeatery is at an all time high, to unprecedented lengths even worse than what it was when I beat Ryan Adams.
Ahren Fournier: I mean I guess… but what does your spot on this list have to do with me?
Detective SKabler: Isn’t it obvious? Look I know you live in your own world but go into the comments sections everywhere this list is being posted and you’ll see they doing you as filthy as they doing me. I mean that’s just facts yeah there’s a bunch of jokes “LOL SK NUMBER 50” “CTFU SK FELL OFF LIKE BRAZY” but they also saying shit like “There’s a 99.99999% chance that Ahren made this list” and you even got people making they own lists with you and me not even included on it.
Ahren Fournier: What do you want me to say? I can’t help the fact that stupid people are stupid.
Detective SKabler: They clearly don’t respect us is what I’m saying. They wrote you off after losing to DDD at Midsummer Massacre, but that’s nothing new they wrote me off too and I BEAT DDD. It didn’t even matter to them when I won because to them it’s “not the same DDD.” They’ll always have an excuse to dismiss us and that’s why I’m saying we got to work together for the greater good.
Ahren Fournier: I won’t deny a lot of these losers out there have been slighting me nonstop really since the year began. And we do get unfairly treated across the board, I mean look at you, you were the top nominee for Elitist of the Year 2018 but they didn’t even do you the decency. And I should be the shoe-in for Elitist of the Year 2019 but I’m not even talked about as much as those bags of silicon on our brand like Felix Hartley and Amber Keys and Cameron Ella Ava.
Detective SKabler: Visual Prophet out here getting thunderous pops for doing a bunch of nut ass shit, gyrating his hips and wearing crop tops and talking about dudes fingers and where they go and all that other suspect shit.
Ahren Fournier: Jamie O’Hara and Harlow Reichert are allowed to kiss ass and secure meetings with management while we get overlooked.
Detective SKabler: Xander Payne prolly finna eat his way into a title shot. Lord knows Mark Michaels got to dickeat his way into an actual title.
Detective Biggums: Cornfed bozos like Lance Blackfyre get to ride horses to the ring and talk about boners and get to main event Showdown.
Ahren Fournier: It’s an atrocity. A tragedy. You know… I’m still not “sold” on all of this regarding the “Bozo Victims Unit”, but there’s no denying we’re surrounded by a bunch of clowns in this business. Granted, you drive a hard bargain, but I’m starting to buy what you’re selling.
Detective SKabler: Aight bet. Glad you and I can finally see eye to eye. There’s something that’s been eluding us my guy and that something is called “respect.” You and me we’re the best in the entire game, the level we are at in the ring and just period as entertainers is unmatched. In my humble opinion you and I are top two and we’re both two. If they won’t give it to us our flowers then Ima go out on a limb here and just say that the only way to get respect is simply put, by any means.
( Ahren nods, picks up Jennipurr, and stands up from his seat. Detective SKabler stands up and reaches out a gloved hand for a handshake. )
Ahren Fournier: You’ve given me a lot to think about SKabler. I’ll have my people call your people.
Detective SKabler: Yessir.
( The two shake hands, and takes his leave bringing the segment to an end. Return to TD Garden. )
(“Jenny From The Block (Track Masters Remix)” by Jennifer Lopez, Jadakiss, and Styles P plays through the speakers as Jenny Cien comes out feeling as confident as possible. Even though things did not go well last week for her, she is looking forward to getting a win and redeeming herself.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL —
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA…SHE IS “THE BADDIE” … JEEEEENNNNNNNNYYYYYYYYY CIIIEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNN!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Jenny Cien is one of the newcomers that has managed to capture the attention of the EAW Universe! She’s a veteran in the ring. She’s loud and brash, but she can back it up in the ring!
Deadprez: She’s managed to get victories over the likes of Kristen Myers and Carlos Cruz, but it was a loss over Kensington Calhoun-Astor that provide Jenny with her first loss in EAW! She’s not looking for that to stop her rise! A victory over her opponent tonight could put her back in the winner’s circle!
(“My Way” by Limp Bizkit replaces “Jenny From The Block” as Ryan Wilson comes out with almost a swagger to him. He feels quite confident going into this match. He managed to get the victory for his team last week and he looks to add another win to his collection this week.)
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson managed to pick up the victory for his team last week! Another victory would be great for him! Jenny Cien has been talked about, but Ryan could shift that spotlight from her onto himself with this one victory!
Gavin Kirkland: He was smart about not having much concern going into his tag team match last week. He managed to save as much energy as possible, but I don’t think that Ryan is going to be lucky! Jenny is not going to give him any room to breathe! What I would give to be in his spot! Jenny is muy muy caliente!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: This match is underway as the two competitors are circling around each other. We are seeing Ryan Wilson crack a smile! Jenny Cien is raising a brow at Ryan, who elevates his hand beneath him — is he making fun of Jenny’s height? I mean, Jenny is a little on the short side, but she has that fiery personality that balances everything out.
Deadprez: I don’t think that Jenny Cien is being pretty appreciative of these short comments. These comments are quite pathetic coming from Ryan Wilson, but that’s probably what he was going for. He wants to get underneath the skin of his opponents. He is trying everything in his power to say the right things to piss them off.
Gavin Kirkland: JENNY CIEN LAUNCHES ONTO RYAN WILSON WITH SOME FIERY PUNCHES! RYAN WILSON IS CAUGHT OFF GUARD, BUT I BELIEVE HE IS LEARNING THAT JENNY CAN MESS HIM UP IF SHE WANTED TOO. JENNY PUNCHES RYAN TO THE CORNER AND WE ARE SEEING SOME CATTINESS COME OUT OF THIS BADDIE. JENNY IS THROWING A COMBINATION OF PUNCHES AND KICKS AROUND! IT SEEMS LIKE THE OFFICIAL MAY NEED TO STEP IN IF THIS GETS OUT OF HAND.
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! BACK AWAY, JENNY!
Deadprez: JENNY CIEN ISN’T STOPPING AS THE OFFICIAL IS NEEDING TO BACK AWAY THE WOMAN! WITH THAT, IT SEEMS LIKE JENNY IS TRYING TO COMPOSE HER BREATHE AND CALM DOWN. SHE HAS HER HANDS UP IN DEFENSE WHERE THE OFFICIAL CAN SEE THEM. Meanwhile, we see Ryan Wilson trying to straighten himself out. It seems like he was caught off guard with how much of a punch that Jenny packed! After the official has managed to calm down, Jenny, he moves out of the way so that the two Elitists can resume the match!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT, JENNY CIEN GOES RIGHT AFTER RYAN WILSON AND RESUMES TO PUNCH THE LIVING HELL OUT HIM! RYAN IS TRYING TO BLOCK EACH OTHER PUNCHES AND KICKS, BUT THEY BECOME SO OVERWHELMING FOR HIM THAT HE JUST ALLOWS HER TO DO THAT!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson manages to lift Jenny Cien up off her feet and out of the corner that they were in! Jenny is trying to punch her way out of Ryan’s grasp, but she doesn’t seem to be having any luck with that at all! Ryan is much taller than her. Jenny is going to need to rely on using her small size to get out of the toughest moves and keep Ryan on his toes! Meanwhile, Ryan is going to need to do everything in his power to ground Jenny and make sure that she doesn’t gain any momentum! Jenny continues to punch her way out of Ryan’s shoulder! Ryan is almost carrying her like he had saved her from a burning house! Jenny manages to get herself out of his shoulder before connecting with a dropkick that sends Ryan down to one knee! Jenny follows that up with a hurricanrana! Ryan is taken down! Jenny quickly goes for the cover on The Agent of Chaos!
Gavin Kirkland: Ryan Wilson manages to lift Jenny Cien above him and throws her behind him! This stops the count! But, Jenny is not down for long as gets right back up and begins to stomp on Ryan! Jenny is not giving him time to process what the hell is going on. Jenny is ruthless as she gives Ryan some time to get up! As soon as Ryan makes it back to his feet, Jenny connects with another dropkick to Ryan’s legs as that takes him down to his knees again! JENNY GOES RIGHT AFTER HIM WITH A SERIES OF SHOOT KICKS! EACH SHOOT KICK IS STRONG ENOUGH TO KNOCK RYAN BACK, BUT HE MANAGES TO REBALANCE HIMSELF AFTERWARDS! JENNY TAKES ONE STEP BACK BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A BEAUTIFUL SHINING WIZARD! THIS KNOCKS RYAN BACK TO HIS FEET! JENNY GOES FOR THE COVER —
Deadprez: — Ryan Wilson rolls himself out of the ring! Things haven’t been going so well for him in this match so far, but Jenny Cien is going to do everything to make sure that things get worse for Ryan! She launches herself outside of the ring and connects with a suicide dive! Both Elitists are down, but it is Jenny that makes it back to her feet! Jenny picks up Ryan and rolls him back inside the ring! Jenny joins him inside the ring! Ryan is on his back as Jenny stands behind Ryan before connecting with a standing moonsault into a double knee drop onto Ryan’s stomach! That did not look like a pleasant feeling! Jenny goes for a cover! She’s hoping to get a quick victory over here!
Gavin Kirkland: Ryan Wilson gets a shoulder up! Jenny Cien is going to need to do a lot more to keep Ryan down! Jenny is the first one back to her feet as she’s demanding and gesturing for Ryan to get back to his feet! It takes some time for Ryan to get back to his feet, but he does so! Jenny launches right at him with hurricanrana!
Deadprez: Not quite, Gavin! RYAN WILSON MANAGES TO CATCH JENNY CIEN MID-HURRICANRANA BEFORE COUNTERING THAT WITH A POWERBOMB AS THAT TAKES THE WOMAN DOWN! THAT MOVE HAS ALLOWED RYAN TO SHIFT THIS MATCH INTO HIS FAVOR! Ryan gets The Baddie to her feet before getting her in position before connecting with a powerful snap suplex! Ryan gets on top of her before connecting with some sharp elbows to her skull! Jenny is screaming and doing everything in her power to fight back, but it seems like Ryan’s elbows are overwhelming her! Ryan then gets her by the shoulders and up to her feet in that way! Ryan acting like he’s like Lance Blackfyre in this scenario! Jenny is trying to stomp and kick herself out of Ryan’s grasp, but Ryan’s hold of her is too good! Ryan throws her over to the corner! He rushes over towards Jenny Cien before connecting with a big boot to her at the corner! Jenny falls onto a seated position! Ryan gets Jenny over his shoulder and it seems like he’s going to for for a snapmare—
Gavin Kirkland: — But, Jenny Cien manages to land on her feet! Ryan Wilson gets her in position before connecting with an inverted DDT and takes down The Baddie! When it seemed like there was some hope for Jenny to make a comeback, Ryan was there to shift the match back into his favor! Ryan gets Jenny and applies a chinlock on the woman! Jenny is in trouble right now as Ryan is looking to wear her down! The look of pain is appearing on this Baddie’s face as she’s trying to look for some way to get out of this move! Ryan is looking to end this match as soon as possible! There is nothing more than Ryan would like than getting a victory over a talked about talent such as Jenny Cien!
Deadprez: It seems like the crowd is getting behind Jenny Cien in this match! “Let’s Go Jenny” chants are breaking out of this arena! People can either like or hate the way Jenny carries herself, but they are not going to deny how good she is! How good she can be if she manages to maintain that hype! A way to maintain that hype would be getting a victory over Ryan Wilson! Jenny is trying to push herself out of this move! It may be a chinlock, but Ryan is making sure that she is kept down no matter what! Jenny is trying to turn herself, but Ryan is wrenching in that chinlock! He wrenches in that headlock a little before before releasing the hold! IN THE PROCESS, JENNY’S SPRINGS FORWARD IN RESPONSE! SHE HITS HER FACE AS THAT HAPPENS! RYAN WILSON GETS JENNY UP BY HER HAIR BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A FOREARM THAT TAKES THE WOMAN DOWN TO HER KNEES! RYAN TAKES A COUPLE STEPS BACK BEFORE CONNECTING WITH NORTHERN LARIAT! JENNY CIEN GOES DOWN AS RYAN GOES FOR THE COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: Jenny Cien kicks out! Despite the beating that Jenny has been taking so far in this match up, it is not enough to keep her down! Ryan gets Jenny back to her feet and goes for a side headlock on The Baddie! The Agent of Chaos wrenches in the headlock as he is giving no chance for Jenny to get out of the move! Ryan gets on one knee as he continues to connect with that side headlock! I feel like this headlock won’t be complicated for Jenny to get out of! I would just wait until Ryan gets his guard down a bit and releases a bit of the hold! If Jenny fails to look for some way out of this hold, this could mean the beginning of the end for her!
Deadprez: Jenny is beginning to show some signs of life! She is trying to punch herself out of the headlock, but Ryan is making it tough for her to do so! She is trying to use those nails of her’s to claw herself out of the move! SHE IS DIGGING INTO THE ARMS OF RYAN WILSON! HER NAILS ARE GOING TO LEAVE A MARK ON HIS ARMS, BUT RYAN IS NOT LETTING GO OF THE HEADLOCK! IT SEEMS LIKE JENNY IS GOING TO NEED TO LOOK FOR ANOTHER WAY TO GET OUT OF THIS HOLD!
Gavin Kirkland: JENNY CIEN JUST BIT THE HELL OUT OF RYAN WILSON! THAT GETS THE SIDE HEADLOCK OFF OF HER! JENNY MANAGES TO CREATE SOME DISTANCE BETWEEN HER AND RYAN! JENNY REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! RYAN GOES DOWN, BUT HE GETS HIMSELF UP RIGHT AWAY! JENNY CONNECTS WITH A CALF KICK THAT TAKES RYAN DOWN TO ONE KNEE! JENNY FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A SOMERSAULT CLOTHESLINE! JENNY BEGINS TO DELIVER A SERIES OF STIFF AND FIERY PUNCHES ON RYAN! JENNY IS UNLEASHING THAT AGGRESSION AND FIRE THAT WE ARE BEGINNING TO KNOW HER FOR! JENNY RISES BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE GIVES OUT A BATTLE CRY! JENNY IS DEMANDING FOR RYAN WILSON TO GET HIS KNEES! RYAN SLOWLY GETS BACK TO HIS FEET AS THE BADDIE RUNS TOWARDS RYAN — DAME MAS — SPIKED HURRICANRANA DRIVER! RYAN GETS HIS FACE PLANTED AGAINST THE CANVAS! JENNY CIEN WITH THE COVER!
OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THR—
Deadprez: RYAN WILSON GETS HIS FOOT ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! RYAN IS REFUSING TO BACK DOWN! HE IS LIKE A COCKROACH — HE REFUSES TO DIE! HE REFUSES TO STAY DOWN! THAT WAS WONDERFUL RING AWARENESS BY THE AGENT OF CHAOS! JENNY CIEN IS LOOKING AT THE OFFICIAL WITH A FRUSTRATED LOOK ON HER FACE! SHE WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO WIN THIS MATCH! JENNY RISES BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE’S GESTURING FOR RYAN TO GET TO HIS KNEE AGAIN? IS SHE REALLY GOING FOR ANOTHER DAME MAS ON RYAN?
Gavin Kirkland: DAME MAS! THIS TIME RYAN WILSON LANDS HEAD FIRST AGAINST THE RING MAT! JENNY RACES FOR THE COVER! THIS COULD BE ALL OVER!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Jenny From The Block” plays through the speakers once again. Jenny Cien looks at down and neatened Ryan Wilson with an evil smirk on her face. She gets to her feet as the official raises her arm, solidifying herself as the victory.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…JEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNYYYYYYYYYY CIIIEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNN!!!
Deadprez: Jenny Cien is victorious in this bout! She needed this after what occurred in her match last week! She managed to pick up a victory against a former number one contender for the PURE Championship! Hopefully, Jenny continues to climb up the ranks! This woman is talented for sure! Everyone keep an eye on her!
Gavin Kirkland: This sexy milf got the victory over here! :whew: Credit to Ryan Wilson though! There is nothing that he can’t take away from this match! It took two Dame Mas to put him away! There’s no doubt that he will get things in the right direction!
( Commercial break featuring a recap and highlights from last night’s Marquee event, Bloodsport. Including Charlie Marr’s controversial EAW Championship victory over Malcolm Jones in the headlining match, and the subsequent firing of MJ due to the spiteful and vindictive as ever Veena Adams. )
( Jenny Cien is entering her dressing room, still sweaty and a little short of breath following her match, but intense as ever. A knock on the door can be heard following this, and Kyra Phillips enters the room before approaching her with a microphone in hand looking for an interview. )
Kyra Phillips: Hi Jenny, can I bother you with an interview for a second?
( Jenny, currently removing her elbow pads and unwrapping her wrist tape, turns to Kyra and nods. )
Jenny Cien: Yea just a second though.
Kyra Phillips: I was hoping to get your first reaction following your hard fought victory against Ryan Wilson. Certainly you’ve got to be feeling good about yourself especially with how electric the crowd was for you tonight.
Jenny Cien: Not good enough.
Kyra Phillips: I’m sorry?
Jenny Cien: Mira you heard me, not good enough. I ain’t satisfied. I ain’t got a reason to be satisfied like that after last week. I showed Ryan Wilson’s bum ass up tonight, but please believe Baddie can still hear all the whispers, Baddie can still hear all the murmers, and I know good and goddamn well that they’re still putting doubt on my name. They don’t hesitate to doubt a bitch around here, I see. I understand I’m not an EAW vet. Granted I been in this 10 but they think I’m a rookie. I’m so used to seeing these lames write me off, everywhere I go it’s been this way. That’s why every time I win I got em sick. And also why every time I allow myself lose… I literally, physically, feel sick.
( Jenny switches wrists, untaping her right hand now, after finishing with her left. )
Jenny Cien: And allowing myself to lose to Cacsington Whatsherface leaves a bad taste in my mouth, because I take this shit seriously. Especially considering where I come from, and considering what I represent. But notice how I never said she beat me. That’s because she didn’t mami. I didn’t do nothing but stumble, and she capitalized. I GUARANTEE YOU I wouldn’t let that happen again. Matta fact while you going around doing interviews Kyra, maybe you should send Cacsington a message along the way. Tell her any time she wants to do it, we can run that shit back, because she might of been the better woman for the night, but I’m the better woman period. Better wrestler too.
( The sound of golf claps can be heard. Kensington Calhoun-Astor enters the room with a condescending smirk. )
Kensington Calhoun-Astor: If it isn’t our favorite little Cubana firecracker.
Jenny Cien: (snaps back) I ain’t Cubana you mayonaisse bitch, I’m Puerto Rican, get it right.
Kensington Calhoun-Astor: Babygirl I don’t care if you’re Martian. At the end of the day you’re inferior. Last week I proved it by defeating you, handily. But I wouldn’t expect somebody like you to take a clean loss with dignity and grace. A lotta y’all are the just cut from the same cloth aren’t you?
Jenny Cien: Excuse me?
Kensington Calhoun-Astor: I mean.. I know y’all are used to handouts, but I hope you realize before you go making demands for a rematch, that I don’t owe anything to someone like you. Amiga.
Jenny Cien: Good thing I ain’t asking for shit other than for you to show up. If anything I owe you the assbeating that you clearly never got as a child with your spoiled, pampered privileged ass.
Kensington Calhoun-Astor: *huff* Oh brother, give it a rest. That’s all you folks do, complain about someone else’s “privilege.” Just admit it, I’m better than you. I’m more woman than you. I’m built like a brickhouse, you’re built like a stick. I’m genetically superior to you… in EVERY way.
Jenny Cien: You built like a brick alright, with that manly fucking shape of yours. I will crack you in your square ass jaw. Why don’t you girdle up them loins you clearly had removed and prove to me you at least got the balls to run it back. You claim you’re the better wrestler right? Then it shouldn’t be an issue.
Kensington Calhoun-Astor: Oh hunny. It’d be redundant. The results would be obvious. As amusing as I think you are, I have bigger priorities than to assert my dominance over bottom of the barrell street trash, such as yourself. People like you should really loose the hoodrat attitude and gain some class, then maybe just maybe we’d start actually taking you seriously. Buut I’ve wasted enough of my time with you. Au revoir.
( Kensington tips her hat to a furious Jenny Cien and turns around, beginning to leave. )
( Kensington falls to the floor, after being smashed over the spine with her signature Louisville slugger baseball bat. )
Jenny Cien: NOW WHO’S STREET TRASH? AIN’T NO CACS TALKING BRAZY TO JENNY FROM THE BLOCK WITHOUT GETTING CLOCKED, GOOFY ASS BITCH!
( Jenny picks up her bat to swing at Kensington again, but she’s stopped by multiple officials who are first responders after the initial loud “thud” can be heard from the hallways. Jenny continues shouting insults at Kensington while Kensington writhes on the floor. )
(SCREENBAR — EARLIER IN THE DAY)
(The camera opens to see the outside of the highly respected establishment, Olive Garden, in Boston on Allstate road. Harlow Reichert stands outside wearing high waisted acid wash jeans with a black crop top and checkered vans, watching as a total of three cars pull through the parking lot over a period of ten minutes before a luxury town car pulls up. A driver steps out of the car and opens the back door, allowing EAW Vice President HRDO to exit the vehicle. As Vice President, he wears a black suit with a red tie and white shirt. He has to look presentable especially at a place such as Olive Garden, a highly respected establishment.)
HRDO: Ms. Reichert. Pleasure to properly meet you.
(HRDO extends his arm for a professional handshake, which Harlow reaches out and accepts the handshake.)
Harlow Reichert: Likewise. I’m not sure why you insisted on the camera crew but I’m glad we have the chance to properly talk because there’s some business matters that I want to bring up with you.
HRDO: Why do we need to discuss business? This should just be a fun and light-hearted time together. After all, this is Olive Garden, where they treat us like family.
(HRDO turns and gives a thumbs up to the camera. Harlow notices and envelope sticking out of his jacket pocket that says “sponsorship check.”)
Harlow Reichert: Wait… is this a fucking commer—
HRDO: —a highly respected establishment? Why yes it is! Olive Garden has been a culinary staple of the American food industry for decades! Let’s hurry up and head inside! I can’t wait to eat!
(HRDO begins to walk towards the door and shepherding Harlow that same direction. The EAW VP leans in and whispers to Harlow.)
HRDO: *trying not to be heard by microphones* Don’t fuck this up. They’re paying the company a boatload.
(Harlow looks both confused and angry as they are led to their seats. They are sat in a corner booth with just too much lighting, Harlow winces as it hurts her eyes a bit.)
HRDO: Isn’t it nice, Harlow? To get to sit and enjoy food in such a lovely place like Olive Garden who has been serving families fantastic Italian delicacies since 1982?
(Harlow looks at him with a raised eyebrow. She speaks with her words dripping with sarcasm.)
Harlow Reichert: Yes. How privileged I am to be able to eat here with you. Doing something that other elitists get paid to do, something I’m not being paid for and had to win the chance to do.
HRDO: Yes, you sure showed everyone in that match. And now you’re eating with the Vice President of the company! Who says EAW doesn’t reward its employees?
(HRDO shoots Harlow a side eye, but she simply folds her arms and stares back. He picks up a menu and pretends to smile.)
HRDO: What a delicious looking set of options we have here. Harlow, what are you thinking about getting to eat?
Harlow Reichert: Pepto Bismol.
(Just then a waiter walks over with two plates in hand.)
Waiter: You don’t even have to worry about choosing! You see, here at Olive Garden, we treat you like family. And who knows you better than family? So we’ve already got your food prepared!
(He sets the plates down in front of them.)
Harlow Reichert: I don’t even get to pick my own prize meal?
HRDO: I mean it’s obviously what you would’ve selected anyway! They know us like family, because that’s the level of care Olive Garden takes with their customers!
Waiter: I have the classic spaghetti and meatballs for you, sir. And for the talented Miss Reichert, our five cheese ziti! I’ll be back to check on you shortly! Enjoy!
(The waiter begins to walk away, but a rat suddenly pokes out of Harlow’s food and scurries onto the table. The waiter immediately grabs the rat and runs off screen as Harlow looks on in horror with wide eyes. Rats are not permitted at Olive Garden. They are in fact a highly respected establishment.)
HRDO: Go ahead and dig in, Harlow! It’s delicious!
(Harlow looks up at HRDO taking a bite of spaghetti. Her jaw is slightly dropped as she is in complete disbelief.)
Harlow Reichert: Are you kidding me? Did… did you not just see—
HRDO: All I see is the prize you worked so hard to get! You should stop and enjoy it! We are after all eating at Olive Garden! A highly respe—
Harlow Reichert: OH MY GOD JUST FUCKING STOP! It’s already bullshit that I’m not only not getting paid to be here and eat this toxic waste, but that It was my prize even in the first place! I have been within inches of winning the Specialists Championship before! I was a standout in the Cash in the Vault ladder match, I even took out Charlie Marr and put him through a flaming table from the ladders because that’s how much I have been willing to risk to win! I know I started here as the girl who didn’t give a shit! But I do! I give a shit and I want to win! This company needs to stop sleeping on me and my capabilities! How the fuck can I have to listen to Lance Blackfyre for a week and my prize is Italia a’ la rodent? Why am I not getting a New Breed Championship shot? A PURE Championship shot? Even a spot in a proper contendership match? Fucking something besides this garbage?
(HRDO sits in silence as Harlow rants about the situation she’s found herself in. When she finally pauses, he glances back and forth between the camera and Harlow. He then picks up a breadstick.)
HRDO: I agree. These breadsticks really are fantastic.
(Harlow looks like she’s about to jump across the table as a new waiter with a large beard steps into frame with several bottles of wine and speaks with a French accent.)
French Waiter: Bonjour Madame et moissieure. Can I interest you in ze house wine? It is… how you say? Good!
(That’s when an Olive Garden representative yells out from nearby and walks over to the camera.)
Producer: Who ordered a French guy? This is an Italian restaurant? How hard is that? How the hell do you cut this camera off?
(The Camera continues recording as the producer fumbles with it. HRDO takes a breath before looking over at Harlow.)
HRDO: I get it. You’re frustrated. And maybe there’s something we can do but now is not the—
French Waiter: I really suggest the wine, Moissure.
HRDO: I’m talking here. *turning back to Harlow* The idea of trusting the process is hard for—
French Waiter: You should have taken the wine.
(The French Waiter then tears the beard away revealing himself to be Mark Michaels. Mark grabs one of the wine bottles and smashes it over HRDO’s head and knocking him out, sending everyone around into a panic.)
Mark Michaels: I knew you’d be here, you corporate fat-cat! You and this company can’t keep hiding from me! I’m the PURE Champion and I have a voice! The world will know the truth about the authority of this company so you and your efforts to silence my message stop right now!
Harlow Reichert: What the fuck are you doing?!?
(Harlow pulls herself out of the booth seat and lunges for Mark, trying to take him down. But as she’s trying to wrestle him down, Mark grabs another bottle of wine and smashes it into the back of Harlow’s skull. She drops down to her knees, clutching the back of her head as Mark pops up and hits her with the Downfall curb stomp into the shards of glass that now cover the floor. Harlow and HRDO are left unconscious and bleeding as Mark flees the scene and the camera fades on the highly respected establishment.)
Gina Romano: The following tag team contest is scheduled FOR ONE FALL!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Gina Romano: Introducing first, hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada! Weighing in at 225 Pounds! “THE KING OF SUPLEXES” VIKTOR STONE!
(The fans quiet down in the arena as the lights go dim. Smoke slowly rises from the entrance. A rain like mist floats through the arena as the opening guitar riff of Filter’s “Hey Man nice Shot” blares through the speakers.)
“I wish I would’ve met you
Now it’s a little late
What you could’ve taught me
I could have saved some face
They think that your early ending
Was all wrong
For the most part they’re right
But look how they all got strong”
(Pyros explodes and out walks Viktor Stone. Stone’s fist and forearms are covered in white tape. Frost stands in the middle of the pyros going off around him. He slowly makes his way down to the ring. Viktor steps up onto the ring apron and hops over the top rope.)
“That’s why I say hey man, nice shot
What a good shot man
(The fans go wild as Stone paces around the ring. Viktor settles into the corner and waits for the match to get started as the music dies down.)
Deadprez: Tag team action here tonight and we have Viktor Stone teaming up with the monster Lance Blackfyre against one of the premiere teams in The Mechanical Animals. Should be a good pairing, speed and strength.
Gavin Kirkland: His partner is huge, and Viktor has been nothing short of impressive. With so many tag teams vying for the Unified Tag Team Titles, this is one to watch, I’m sure ether one has that in the back of their mind and man, Lance had a great showing against Mr. Dedede last week.
( “Old Town Road” (Remix) by Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus plays. Lance Blackfyre steps out onto the stage, nodding his head and psyching himself up while most of the audience gives him heat. Some of the audience members appear to be utterly astonished by his size, gawking at Blackfyre and not knowing how to process his gargantuan physique as he approaches the ring. )
Gina Romano: And his partner! Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 365 pounds…. LANCE BLACKFYRE!!!!!”
(He steps over the top rope and heads to the corner, keeping his eye on his partner, Viktor Stone who nods.)
Deadprez: The big man is here, and the Mechanical Animals must be aware of his strength and size.
Gavin Kirkland: That dude is huge, he is the one guy you don’t want in the ring. The Mechanical Animals want to win this match? They need to keep this big bastard in the corner and out of the ring.
Deadprez: You are preaching tonight, playa?”
Gavin Kirkland: Somebody has too!
(The lights dim as “Firing Squad” by No Name Tim and Kashis Keyz plays throughout the arena. Sabin Richards and David Gibson walk out accompanied by their manager, Joseph Gracons. They start making their way toward the ring.)
Gina Romano: Their opponents, from The Netherlands, weighing at a total combined weight of 463 pounds. Accompanied to the ring by their manager, Joseph Garcons! Here are David Gibson and Sabin Richards… THE MECHANICAL ANIMALS!
(Both men stand in the middle of the ring and raise their arms up in the air. Garcons is proud to show them off as the crowd boos.)
Deadprez: One of the premiere tag teams on Showdown and they showed it at Midsummer Massacre against Heavenly Hell. They want another shot at those tag titles and are looking to make a statement tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: Oh, I’m sure they are, I still think Minerva put a Gypsy spell on David Gibson with that kiss.
(The referee checks on all teams, Gracons retreats to the corner as the official calls for the start of the match with Viktor Stone and David Gibson starting….)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: Gibson and Stone lock up, Stone quickly gets behind Gibson and tries for a roll up but Gibson hangs on, grabbing Stone by the neck and lifting him up back to his feet and connecting with a huge European Forearm and another, Stone stumbling back, Gibson whips him against the ropes, he goes for a clothesline but Viktor ducks, bouncing back, Gibson goes for another clothesline but again Viktor ducks with his speed and counters with a Sling Blade! Gibson down! Viktor bounces off the ropes again, Gibson is back on his feet and a Flying bodypress but he is caught! Gibson hoists him on his shoulders for a powerslam but Stone is able to wiggle out and pushes him into the turnbuckle and counters with a rollup, the referee down for the count!
(Gibson Pushes off with force as the crowd boos)
Gavin Kirkland: Gibson with the power kicks out! Her comes Stone, running against the ropers, Gibson counters with an elbow flush to the jaw! That stifles Stone as he backs up, Gibson grabs him and slings Viktor right into his corner, he tags Richards!
Deadprez: Richards starts with a flurry of punches on Stone! He’s in a lotta trouble! Better get out if that corner! Sabin, the quicker of the two Animals pulls him out, sets up Stone for a snap suplex and connects rolling over for the pin as the referee drops!
Gavin Kirkland: Stone Kicks Out! Viktor needs to tag right now, the Animals are cutting the mat in half here. That is why Blackfyre and Stone are at a disadvantage! They are facing a team who knows each other, maybe a little too well and Gracons barking orders outside can be a difference maker, I said earlier, they can’t let Lance Blackfyre in or the Animals no matter how good they are as a tag team might be in a lot of trouble against a monster like him.
Deadprez: I can’t argue that point. Sabin picks up Stone but he counters with a jawbreaker! Sabin is stunned! Stone needs to make a tag but instead Stone counters with a textbook SPINEBUSTER! What a thing of beauty! He goes for a cover!
Gavin Kirkland: Sabin kicks out with authority! It’s early in the match and Stone needs to tag the big man or it’s going to be a hell of a night here! Stone is trying to tag the big man! Here he is, wait… Gibson runs in and attacks Stone! Lance comes into the ring and the referee is now trying to stop the big man from coming in! The referee is not turning around, look at the Animals!
Deadprez: THE ANIMALS HAVE STONE! DEEP SIX! THE REFEREE HAS NOT SEEN THIS! LANCE BALCKFYRE MIGHT JUST RUN RIGHT THROUGH THE OFFICIAL! TURN AROUND REF!
Gavin Kirkland: STONE IS DOWN! The referee finally has Blackfyre back to the corner! He turns to see Sabin on top of Stone! Listen to Gracons screaming for the count! THE REFEREE DROPPING FOR THE COUNT!
Deadprez: SHOULDER UP BY STONE! THE KID HAS LIFE! HE NEEDS TO TAG! Sabin drags Stone to the corner and tags Gibson, A WISHBONE! THAT WILL RUIN YOUR DAY! Stone will be singing soprano for the next few weeks! Gibson picks up Stone and lifts him for a stalling suplex, all the blood rushing to his head! Dropping him down hard! This kid is taking a lot right now and needs to tag, there hasn’t been one yet in this match, the Animals are smart, making sure to keep him in the ring. Gibson drags Stone to the corner and tags Sabin again.
(The Crowd starts to clap as Lance Blackfyre stomps his feet on the apron….)
Gavin Kirkland: The mechanical Animals are showing what tag team wrestling is. They are concentrating on Stone and if there isn’t a tag soon, this match will not last. Sabin grabs Stone and whips him into hos own corner. He is unleashing with left and rights, the referee is trying to slow this down and stop it but the Animals are relentless right now! Stone can’t take much more and Sabin starts thrusting his shoulders into the midsection over and over! The referee finally administering the count!
(Sabin breaks it up and backs off, Gibson grabs the tag rope and starts choking Stone while the referee’s back is turned, the crowd roars in boos)
Deadprez: Oh, come on! The referee is not seeing the ILLEGAL CHOKE! TURN AROUND PLAYA! STONE IS TURNING BLUE! GIBSON LETS GO JUST AS THE REFEREE TURNS AROUND! STONE IS SLUMPED AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE! Sabin tags in Gibson, he drags Stone out of the corner. Unloading with some stiff forearms, he whips the kid into the other turnbuckle and follows with a Clothesline! Gracons is barking orders again at Gibson!
Gavin Kirkland: He wants Gibson to lift Stone off the tope rope! Gibson picks him up and now he is climbing to the very top! Gibson setting up for a Superplex but no! Stone with a head butt! And Then Another Headbutt! GIBSON CRASHES TO THE MATS! STONE FLIES OFF WITH A DOUBLE STOMP ON GIBSON! THEN HE RUNS AND HITS A YAKUZA KICK ON SABIN KNOCKING HIM OFF THE APRON!
Deadprez: STONE FLIES ACROSS THE RING AND TAGS LANCE BLACKFYRE! THE BIG MAN IS FINALLY IN THE RING!
(The Crowd roars when Blackfyre gets in the ring)
Deadprez: Lance grabs Gibson and with hat huge meat hook strikes him! He strikes him again! Gibson is in a lotta trouble! BIG RUNNING BOOT! GIBSON IS DOWN! WAIT HERE COME SSABIN JUMPING OFF THE TOP ROPE AND HE IS CAUGHT BY THE THROAT! THE TITANIC PLUNGE ON SABIN! HE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING AND GIBSON IS TON OF SHIT!
Gavin Kirkland: Lance picks up Gibson! Look at Gibson! His eyes! He knows that he is in trouble here! He hoists him up! WAIT…. RUNNING POWERSLAM! HE HAS THE COVER ON GIBSON! THIS ONE IS OVER! HERE IS THE REFEREE!
(Gracons pulls the referee out just in time from the three count)
Deadprez: GRACONS PULLED OUT THE REFEREE! IT WAS NOT A THREE COUNT! THE REF AND GRACONS ARE ARGUING OUTSIDE…. LANCE ROLLS OUT OF THE RING, HE GRABS GRACONS! HE HIP TOSSED THAT FOOL HALFWAY ACROSSED THE MATS!
Gavin Kirkland: Why can’t we have a sexy doctor here like in Voltage to take care of our staff!? GRACONS WAS BROKEN IN HALF! THE REREREE IS CHECKING ON GRACONS! LANCE ROLLS BACK IN THE RING AND DOESN’T SEE SABIN WITH A LOW BLOW! LANCE CRUMBLES THE BIG MAN IS DOWN! THE ANIMALS HAVE HIM…. FINAL JUDGMENT! LANCE IS DOWN! GIBSON WITH THE PIN!
Deadprez: “The referee finally rolls into the ring!
Deadprez: NO!!!! VIKTOR STONE BREAKS THE COUNT! SABIN GRABS STONE BUT HE HITS HIM WITH THE CHIN CHECK! SABIN IS STRUMBLING! STONE WITH JUJITSU KICKS FINISHING IT OFF WITH A REVERSE KICK! SABIN IS OUT ON THE MATS! GIBSON GETS UP AND CLOTHESLINES STONE RIGHT OUT OF THE RING!
Gavin Kirkland: GIBSON DOESN’T SEE BLACKFYRE GETTING UP! HE TURNS AROUND RIGHT INTO SHATTERED JOY! HE HIT GIBSON FLUSH IN THE JAW! LANCE GOING FOR THE COVER!
Deadprez: THERE IS NO OEN TO BREAK THE COUNT! HERE IS THE REFEREE WITH THE COUNT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(The referee calls for the bell as Lance Blackfyre gets up and has his hands raised in victory.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNERS OF THE MATCH THE TEAM OF VIKTOOOOOORRR STOOOOOOONNNNNEEEE AND LAAAANNNNNNNCCCCEEE BLACKFYYYYYYYYRRRREEEEE!!!!
(“Old Town Road” (Remix) by Lil Nas X ft. Billy Ray Cyrus plays as Lance goes over to Viktor who rolls into the ring, he stands there with the big man who stares him down and then walks out. Gibson rolls out of the ring, helped by Sabin and Gracons who they regroup, looking into the ring with scowls on their faces.)
Deadprez: An Incredible match that was dominated by the Mechanical Animals but at the end it was the big man who made a difference and the toughness of Stone. The Animals need to regroup, this is not what they expected but they will be back stronger than ever.
Gavin Kirkland: It was that Gypsy Curse, I am telling you, Gibson hasn’t been the same since.
(Blackfyre starts to leave the ring as Viktor follows while the Animals are ringside trying to console one another, Gibson slams the mats as we cut to commercial.)
(Commercial promoting reading and literacy for children featuring Darkane. “Who the fuck booked this?”)
( Camera opens up at the outside of a trailer with armed security standing in front of it. The name plate on the trailor door reads “Mr. DEDEDE”. We can hear him screaming, “I’m not promising you shit. I’m not leaving you vulnerable to yourself, fuck that. Give me your location NOW.” Inside the trailor, Mr. DEDEDE is sitting on one of his couches wearing his Gawdzilla Pro “Arab Money Green” tracksuit with his feet propped up on the coffee table, and the Answers World Championship in his lap. DDD appears to be visibly angered while on his phone, and getting screamed by somebody on the other end before they hang up on him. )
Mr. DEDEDE: What the fuck did I tell her about hanging up on me…
( DDD sits up straight, simmering, tapping his index finger across his chin and looking down at his phone in anger. )
Mr. DEDEDE: You know what, I’ma call her ass again.
( DDD picks up the phone and is getting ready to call his wife, Kassidy Heart, after being hung up on by her. )
*KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK*
Mr. DEDEDE: WHAT.
( One of DDDs security guards enter the trailer with a package. )
Security guard: It’s for you.
Mr. DEDEDE: How am I getting fan mail? How does anybody even know that I’m here?
Security guard: Beats me. It must be important though, it’s from overseas.
( The security guard sets the package down on the table and exits the trailer. DDD leans over, analyzing the mysterious package before ripping open the paper brown covering and revealing a pink box with the mark of lipstick print sealing the cover. DDD raises a brow in curiosity, and removes the top – ripping out the interior packaging papers before pulling out an envelope. )
Mr. DEDEDE: The hell is this.
( DEDEDE flips the envelope and reads the words “What is love if not expressed through loving action? For you, my sweet king.” )
Mr. DEDEDE: Uhhh.
( DEDEDE removes a stack of a dozen photos from the envelope, revealing themselves to be feet pics from DDD’s unknown secret admirer. DDD surveys the photographs, his eyes lighting up as he flips through different poses of ten perfectly manicured toes, painted red on a pair of smooth and soft female feet. )
Mr. DEDEDE: Ooooh..
( DDD flips through more pictures, with side shots of the feet, and an angle where you can see both soles with them being scrunched up – which really pops DDDs eyes. )
Mr. DEDEDE: Whoever this broad is, she knows what I like. Then again I’m used to fan submitted feet pics, but these sure stand out..
( DDD continues flipping through the pictures, before looking around. )
( DDD picks up a bottle of Jerkins hidden off screen and begins squirting some on his hands. )
*KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK*
Mr. DEDEDE: HOLD ON.
( DDD quickly puts away the Jerkins. )
Mr. DEDEDE: Come on…
( Max A. Million enters the trailer with a microphone in hand, looking for an interview. )
Max A. Million: Hey DDD, do you have time to talk?
Mr. DEDEDE: No. Can’t you see I’m fucking going through shit?
( Max looks down and sees the scattered pictures of womens feet on his coffee table, along with a bottle of Jerkins poorly hidden under one of the sofa cushions. )
Max A. Million: I… apologize, I was just hoping to get a comment from you on the state of Showdown going into Territorial Invasion. Rumor has it Showdown General Manager Jenny Punk has a major decision to make tonight that could involve the return of a famous multi-branded match.
Mr. DEDEDE: Do you think I care Max? Huh? Do you think that concerns me? I’ve got enough on my plate as it is. The wife’s acting up, I’ve got a stalker who can barely speak any English but apparently has pretty ass feet, and I’m still mourning the loss of a buddy of mine that passed away in prison yesterday.
Max A. Million: Oh. Well I’m sorry to hear that. I imagine that must have been tragic.
Mr. DEDEDE: Yeah. Got suicided to the back of the head. :pensive:
Max A. Million: Oh.
Mr. DEDEDE: You know what this weekend has been a complete shitshow for me. Mattel’s bitching at me over how graphic Bloodsport was, we took a hit in the stock market after some virgin shot up a bunch of 70 year olds on scooters in some Wal Mart in El Paso, so now these pussy ass investors are claiming EAW has “too much violence in these times of violence.” I’ve got a lot on my freaking plate. So just do me a favor and get the hell out of my trailer, NOW!
Max A. Million: OK! OK! I’ll go! Sorry for bothering you!
( Max quickly exits the trailer, and DDD sits back on his couch still visibly frustrated. )
(Camera opens to a shot of Gina Romano inside the ring)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for…
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
(“Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hatashi hits as Myles makes his way out onto the stage to a mixed reaction.)
Gina Romano: Please Welcome the special guest commentator for this matchup, MYLES!!!
Gavin Kirkland: I’m already stuck next to another guy all day, can’t they give me someone with tits?
Deadprez: I really think you need to find a therapist.
(Myles walks around the ring and takes a seat at the commentary desk. He places a headset on as he settles in.)
Deadprez: Myles, a pleasure to have you here as we get set for this match. Anything in particular you’re going to be looking for?
(“It Follows” by Cane Hill hits as Xander Payne steps out onto the stage to boos from the crowd.)
Myles: Yeah. For this guy to get his ass beat.
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making his way to the ring from Brampton, Ontario, Canada, weighing in at 240 pounds… XANNNDDDDEEERRR PPPAAAYYYNNEEEE!!
Gavin Kirkland: You know I heard a rumor that under that T-shirt, Xander actually has a Jamie O’Hara level six pack. He just keeps it hidden so he doesn’t make other people feel bad.
Myles: If you believe that then you’re beyond help. He started that rumor because he was both too lazy to do any real training and too insecure to deal with his obesity. And that 240 pounds? It’s off by at least 60.
Deadprez: Damn. Exposed by a reliable source.
(Xander slides into the ring and waves at Myles with a smirk as “Just Cos You Got The Power” by Motörhead hits and Mark Michaels walks out with his Pure Championship over his shoulder to more boos from the crowd.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent, making his way to the ring from Minneapolis, Minnesota… weighing in at 240 pounds… he is the EAW PURE Champion… MARRRRRRRK MIIICCCHHHAAAAEEELLLSSS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Damn this crowd negative af tonight.
Deadprez: Mark Michaels is not afraid to speak his mind and make his presence felt. He’s willing to go after anyone and everyone to accomplish his goals and you have to think the PURE champion is looking to do the same here to Xander Payne.
(Mark slides into the ring and holds his Championship high in the air before handing it out to the time keeper. The referee then calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: And we are ready to go! Both men now circling! Xander and Mark both looking for their best opening to get things started! Mark Michaels now beginning to move in, Xander Payne matching him step for step. Both men going towards each other! Xander shoots for a lock up! BUT MARK MICHAELS OPENS WITH A DROPKICK TO THE KNEE! HE DROPS XANDER DOWN TO ONE LEG AND MARK HITS THE ROPES! HE BOUNDS OFF AND HOPS UP! LOOKING FOR THE DOWNFALL! CURB STOMP!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT XANDER POPS HIM UP INTO THE AIR! HE WAS ONLY PLAYING DEAD! XANDER CATCHES THE PURE CHAMPION IN POSITION FOR THE POP UP POWERBOMB! HERE IT IS!
Deadprez: BUT MARK USES HIS LEGS TO HOLD ONE AND TURN IT INTO A HURRICANRANA THAT SENDS PAYNE COLLIDING SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! MICHAELS COMES FROM BEHIND AND ROLLS HIM UP!
Myles: Don’t fool around.
Deadprez: Payne with a quick Kickout! What an opening sequence to this matchup! Either man could’ve won it right there! Michaels pops back up to his feet, and Payne now rolling over and up to his knees as he stretches out that shoulder. Payne up to his feet and Michaels moves in! Mark tried to lock up and gain the advantage but Payne uses his size advantage and turns to throw Michaels into the corner!
Gavin Kirkland: WAIT!!! How can Xander have a size advantage? They’re listed at the same weight!
Deadprez: PAYNE LAYING INTO THE PURE CHAMPION! FIRING AWAY WITH PUNCHES IN THE CORNER! HE HAS ONE HAND ON MARK’S CHEST AND LEANS AGAINST HIM TO HOLD HIM THERE WHILE THROWING HAYMAKERS WITH THE OTHER HAND! SHOT AFTER SHOT CONNECTING WITH THE FACE OF MICHAELS AS THE REFEREE STEPS IN AND BEGINS A COUNT!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Gavin Kirkland: And Xander McBitchTits steps away from the corner with his hands raised!! The referee now checking on Mark… BUT HERE COMES PAYNE WITH A CANNONBALL! IT CONNECTS AND XANDER NOW STOMPING A HOLE INTO MARK BEFORE GRABBING HIM BY THE BOOT AND DRAGGING HIM OUT OF THE CORNER! XANDER LOOKING FOR A SHARPSHOOTER! HE GRABS AHOLD OF THE LEGS AND TRIES TO TWIST THROUGH!
Myles: But Xander is shit so he projects it completely and Mark manages to use his legs and shove Xander off and into the ropes. Xander hits the ropes and bounces back—
Deadprez: RIGHT INTO A DISCUS PUNCH FROM MARK! Michaels levels the former New Breed and Tag Team Champion! And now Mark looking to capitalize with a quick cover!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO-
Deadprez: NO! Still not enough to keep Xander down for the count! Michales looks annoyed at the Kickout but he has to know that wasn’t going to get the job done! Mark looks around and now seems to be eyeing the turnbuckles! He backs himself into the corner and lifts himself up to the second rope! Payne still not moving on the ground! LEAPING LEG DROP FROM THE SECOND ROPE LANDS RIGHT ACROSS THE THROAT OF PAYNE! Xander now rolling over clutching at his through… AND MICHAELS CAPITALIZES! THE LIBERATION HAS BEGUN! LABELL LOCK IS IN PLACE! CRANKING BACK ON XANDERS NECK WHILE ALSO TWISTING THAT SHOULDER THAT IMPACTED WITH THE CORNER POST EARLIER!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander may not have any choice here! He’s not right in the center but the ropes are a good distance away! He’s scratching and clawing to try and make an escape! But he’s not making any progress! Trying to drive with his legs now! Moving but only ever so slowly! That hold is in tight! And the Paynekiller is in some real pain! Inching! Trying to get to those ropes! BUT MICHAELS LETS HIS LEGS OFF THE SHOULDER AND PULLS XANDER BACK TOWARDS THE CENTER! THE HOLD OS REAPPLIED AND.PAYNE HAS TO BE DONE HERE! THERES NO ESCAPE TO BE SEEN!
Deadprez: Xander has a hand up! He’s about to tap! This may be it! BUT XANDER SUDDENLY FINDS AN ANGLE AND MANAGES TO ROLL BACKWARDS! THE HOLD IS STILL IN BUT MICHAELS IS ON HIS SHOULDERS AND THE REFEREE IS IN POSITION!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Deadprez: Michaels wisely releases the hold and Xander rolls away coughing and trying to get some air in his lungs! Payne now rolling himself to the outside of the ring and trying to gather himself after the damage done by that submission hold. Michaels looks like he has something on his mind… MICHAELS TAKES OFF AND LEAPS! SUICIDE PLANCHA FROM THE PURE CHAMPION!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT PAYNE CAUGHT HIM! THE POWER FROM XANDER PAYNE AS HE POPS MARK UP INTO THE AIR! POP UP POWERBOMB ONTO THE STEEL STEPS! MICHAELS LANDS WITH A THUNDEROUS CLANG AS HIS BODY BOUNCES OFF THE STEPS AND DOWN TO THE FLOOR! Xander Payne now grabs the PURE Champion up by the shoulder and rolls him into the ring! Xander now tried to follow! OH! But look at the ring awareness from Michaels! He keeps rolling all the way to the other side of the ring! Xander scrambles after him and finally manages to catch him and make the pin!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Deadprez: Kickout from Mark Michaels! Look at that! Bought himself just enough time to recover by creating that distance and delaying the pin! Xander very well could’ve had the match won right there! But that pop up powerbomb on the steps still took a lot out of Michaels! Xander is furious that he kicked out but this match will continue! Michaels now rolls himself out of the ring here on the other side! Trying to continue creating some distance before Payne can capitalize on the damage done! But Payne isn’t going to let him escape! Xander slides out of the ring! XANDER CHARGES AT MICHAELS! BUT MICHAELS KNEW IT WAS COMING AND HE SIDE STEPS! HE SHOVES PAYNE FROM BEHIND AND SENDS HIM NOW SHOULDER FIRST I TO THE OTHER SET OF STEEL STEPS! BOTH MEN FEELING THE IMPACT OF THE STEPS IN THIS MATCHUP!
Gavin Kirkland: The ref clearly doesn’t want anything fun or entertaining to happen so now he’s starting a count and telling them both to get back into the ring. Mark is lining up though! He’s going to try and take advantage of Xander being down!
Deadprez: MICHAELS CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING KNEE TO THE SKULL! PAYNE HAS HIS HEAD DRIVEN BACK INTO THE STEPS BY THE PURE CHAMPION’S KNEE! MARK NOW STOMPING INTO PAYNE ON THE GROUND.
Deadprez: Michaels now grabbing the wrist of Payne and yanking him up to his feet! Piling him by that injured arm, Michaels now twists through and torques that damaged shoulder! He yanks on it again! AND RUNS PAYNE BY THAT SAME SHOULDER INTO THE BARRICADE!
Gavin Kirkland: Mark now grabbing Xander again and pulling him back up! Xander leaned now against the barricade— AND MICHAELS SLAPS HIM DIRECTLY ACROSS THE FACE! Xander stumbles now as he tries to get off the barricade but the PURE champion in pursuit!
Deadprez: Michaels grabs Payne from behind and tries to roll him into the ring… BUT XANDER REVERSES AND SENDS MARK SPINE FIRST INTO THE RING APRON! DON’T FORGET HOW MARK LANDED OFF THAT POWERBOMB ON THE STEPS EARLIER! HES IN PAIN!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander Payne just bought himself a little ground here in this matchup but for how long? Mark is slumped back against the ring as he cringes in pain from his back and Xander is down on his knees and clutching that arm!
Myles: I hope Mark rips it out of socket.
Deadprez: Xander up and now grabs Mark up by the hair! Drags him to his feet— AND XANDER LIFTING MARK UP AND DRIVING HIM BACK FIRST INTO THAT STEEL POST! MARK MICHAELS IS DOWN BUT DOING THAT CAUSED PAYNE TO USE THAT DAMAGED SHOULDER! HES CLUTCHING IT STILL AND CANT HAVE MUCH LEFT!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander now beating some life and blood into that shoulder joint as he goes to grab Mark and try to keep up the offense! Xander now grabbing Mark back up and dragging him to his knees! BAM! LAYING PUNCHES INTO MARK’S FACE NOW!
Deadprez: Xander now rolls Mark inside the ring before taking a second to stretch that shoulder back out and try to regain some mobility! The ref goes to count ten but Xander slips under the bottom rope just before he does so! Xander now stalking the PURE Champion who is clutching at his spine! Xander now waiting just behind him! Mark slowly trying to drag himself to his feet! He gets up to his knees and shakes his head clear! Michales now standing up! Turns around! MASSIVE LARIAT BY THE MASSIVE PAYNE!
Myles: NO! LOOK! MARK DUCKED IT!
Gavin Kirkland: Myles is right! Mark Michaels ducks underneath the lariat that would’ve taken his head off and plants a foot to turn around! Payne turns to try and get back on offense! SUPERKICK FROM MICHAELS TO THAT DAMAGED SHOULDER! XANDER IS HURTING AS HE IS PROBABLY GOING TO NEED SOME MEDICAL ATTENTION AFTER THIS CONTEST! BUT MARK MICHAELS IS ON THE ATTACK AGAIN! XANDER TURNS AROUND! DISCUS PUNCH!
Deadprez: BUT PAYNE BLOCKS THE DISCUS LUNCH WITH HIS GOOD ARM! HE SHOVES MICHAELS BACKWARDS AND INTO THE ROPES! POP UP POWERBOMB!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT HE DROPS THE PURE CHAMPION! THAT SHOULDER FINALLY GAVE OUT AND PAYNE CANT HIT THE POWERBOMB THAT WOULD’VE ENDED THIS CONTEST FOR SURE!
Deadprez: Michaels isn’t happy with just escaping though! Xander is leaned against the corner as he tries to get some feeling back in that arm! BUT MICHAELS FROM BEHIND WITH A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! XANDER’S HEAD BOUNCES OFF THE TURNBUCKLES! HES DOWN! MICHAELS IS IN POSITION! THE REF IS CHECKING ON PAUNE AND MARK IS LOOKING FOR THE DOWNFALL! WAITING FKR THAT RIGHT MOMENT! HE TAKES OFF!
Gavin Kirkland: WHAT?!? SOME HOODED FAN JUST JUMPED THE BARRICADE AND GRABBED MARK BY THE BOOT! THEY KEPT HIM FROM RUNNING FOR THE CURB STOMP! GET SECURITY OUT HERE AND REMOVE THIS FOOL!
Myles: Who the fuck is that?!?
Deadprez: Mark is yanking his boot away from the fan and screaming at them to mind their own business and— XANDER PAYNE WITH A ROLL UP FROM BEHIND ON MARK MICHAELS! USING THE GOOD ARM! XANDER HAS HIM! LAYS HIS FULL BODY WEIGHT ACROSS MARK’S LEGS FOR GOOD MEASURE!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Myles: Wow. Fuck that bullshit.
(“It Follows” hits again as Xander rolls out of the ring and begins up the ramp still clutching his shoulder but with a big grin on his face.)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… XANDER PAYNE!
Deadprez: That fan just cost Mark the match! Xander just committed highway robbery!
Gavin Kirkland: You’re not wrong Prez, but in the end it’s the announced winner that counts! And Xander Payne just pinned the PURE champion!
(Mark is furious inside the ring and is screaming at the hooded fan at ringside.)
Deadprez: Mark is angry and rightfully so! This match was his to take and— THE FAN JUST SLID INTO THE RING AND TACKLED MARK TO THE GROUND! WHOEVER THIS IS IS LAYING INTO MARK! MOUNTED ON TOP OF HIM AND POUNDING I TO HIS FACE WITH FISTS! FIRING AWAY AND I THINK MARK’S NOSE IS BUSTED! THIS MYSTERIOUS PERSON LOOKS POSSESSED AS THEY BEAT ON THE PURE CHAMPION.)
(The hooded fan stops after Mark is out cold on the mat and stands up, removing their hood.)
Gavin Kirkland: THATS HARLOW REICHERT! FINALLY SOMEONE WITH TITTIES!
(Harlow stands over Mark’s body looking incensed. Her face has several bandages and stitches from lacerations.)
Deadprez: Harlow clearly upset by what happened earlier today with Mark at her meal with HRDO! Looking to exact some revenge for what was done to her at the restaurant!
(Harlow spits on Mark Michaels before rolling out of the ring, eyes trained on him as she walks up the ramp and the camera fades.)
(Commercial for Olive Garden. A highly respected establishment.)
(The camera pans to Jenny Punk backstage. Jenny is seated on her desk as she is doing some paperwork. She seems entirely focused on the paperwork as a knock gets heard on the door. Somehow, Jenny doesn’t notice the knock and continues with the paperwork.)
(A moment passes as the door opening gets heard behind the cameras. Jamie O’Hara appears in the camera shot. The crowd is hearing cheering loudly in the arena. Jamie stands in front of Jenny’s desk, almost contemplating whether to disturb her; however, he knows that Jenny had requested to see him in her office. )
Jamie O’Hara: Um, Jenny.
(Jenny Punk continues to occupy herself with her camera work. She does not notice Jamie standing in front of her.)
Jamie O’Hara: Jenny a producer said that you wanted to see me?
(Still, nothing from Jenny Punk. We love a focused queen. :wow: )
(Jamie O’Hara slams his hand against her desk aggressively, which startles Jenny Punk.)
Jamie O’Hara: JENNY!
(With that, Jenny Punk notices that Jamie O’Hara is in her presence.)
Jenny Punk: Sorry. I had my AirPods on. 😬
(Jenny Punk moves her long, dirty blonde hair aside and reveals her AirPods. She takes them off and puts them to the side. Now, she provides Jamie O’Hara with the intention that he deserves. Jenny takes a moment to admire the handsomeness of Jamie.)
Jenny Punk: Has anyone told you how handsome you are?
Jamie O’Hara: Yes, my wife.
Jenny Punk: I don’t want any problems with her. :whoa:
Jamie O’Hara: No one does, but you wanted to see me?
Jenny Punk: Yes! You’re aware that Territorial Invasion is next month?
Jamie O’Hara: Yeah, what about it?
Jenny Punk: Well, I want to follow up with what Hawk did last year. I’m firing the first shot and hoping to get the ball rolling with another War Games match.
(The crowd is heard cheering at the possibility of another War Games match. This idea piques Jamie O’Hara’s interest.)
Jenny Punk: I wanted to redeem ourselves from Showdown’s awful performance last year. I thought we could have done so much better. We had the EAW Champion in our team, but Cage let us down by being the man who ate the cover. We trusted him so much to carry Showdown to victory. It also didn’t help that we had Damon Diesel and Shane Gates in the team. :lupe:
Jamie O’Hara: :lupe:
Jenny Punk: That’s why I asked for you to be here, Jamie. I want you to be the captain of Team Showdown in the War Games match!
(The crowd explodes in the announcement of Jamie O’Hara being the captain for Team Showdown!)
Jenny Punk: I’m trusting you to assemble the best team possible —
Jamie O’Hara: — Do I have too? :noah: Can I just go into the match by myself? The one person I like to team with has other plans and there’s no way I’m making her double book herself.
Jenny Punk: Yes, you need a team, Jamie. Either you pick your team or I’m picking it for you.
Jamie O’Hara: …Fine. 😒
Jenny Punk: Great! 😄 I know you’ll be a great captain, Jamie. I trust you to lead Showdown to victory.
Jamie O’Hara: That’s the plan. You trust the right person to lead Showdown to victory. Those flogs from Dynasty and Voltage don’t stand a chance.
Jenny Punk: That’s the spirit!
(With that, Jamie O’Hara makes his way out of the camera shot and out of Jenny Punk’s office. Jenny smiles at the direction Jamie went, knowing that she is putting her trust in the right Elitist to lead Showdown to victory.)
(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Media Tag plays through the speakers. Out walks Lucas Johnson and his advocate Albert Hitchman standing next to him. Albert is hyping his client and giving him some confidence going into this match. Lucas is looking quite focused knowing the type of opponent The Visual Prophet is.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL—
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY ALBERT HITCHMAN… FROM ATLANTA, GEORGIA…WEIGHING IN 205 POUNDS…HE IS THE “WRESTLING MACHINE”…LUUUUUUUUCCCCCCAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSS JOOOOOOHHHHHHHNNNNNNSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNN!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas Johnson’s Showdown run has not been the best! He come close to defeating Lethal Consequences at Midsummer Massacre! He fell short in defeating David Gibson last week on Showdown!
Deadprez: We can’t forget that David Gibson nearly had to have good hold of Lucas Johnson’s tights in order to secure the victory! Perhaps, Lucas’ luck can turn around this week! He is up against an opponent like The Visual Prophet! Lucas needs to bring his best if he stands a chance at winning!
(“Young and Bitter” dies down as “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen hits the arena. The Visual Prophet comes out with Nina Dobrev who is also hyping up Viz and making sure that the crowd knows who the better man in this match is.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY NINA DOBREV…FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN…WEIGHING IN 230 POUNDS…HE IS “BAETHOVEN” … THE VISSSSUUUUAAAAALLLLLLLLL PRRROOOOPHHHHEEEEEEEEEETTTTTT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Here is the man who managed to kill Chris Elite at Midsummer Massacre! That’s what we thought at last, but it seems like the power of the Gawd Contract worked in Chris’ favor! Viz is looking ahead to bigger and better things!
Deadprez: The Answers World Championship would be an excellent direction for him to go in! But, we’ll have to wait and see to determine what The Visual Prophet does next! People say that he is the future of this business, but things are looking fantastic for him at the moment! Winning this match could be wonderful for him as well!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: This isn’t a match I was expecting to see — The Visual Prophet versus Lucas Johnson! Albert Hitchman is ringside to support Lucas and I can tell that he’s going to be a factor in this match! Albert’s mind never stops running! We see Viz giving Lucas the “come hither” gesture and he does it with so much seduction. It doesn’t seem like Lucas is in a mood to play Viz’ games, but he’s going to play them no matter if he likes them or not!
Gavin Kirkland: Everyone should know that The Visual Prophet can get a little flirtatious, but that is part of the mind games that he plays sometimes. They’re actually very smart, but you are right, Deadprez! Lucas doesn’t look to be into Viz’ games! He would love to get this match underway! The two competitors get closer to each other as they go for the collar-and-elbow tie up! Both Elitists are trying to push the other to the ropes! Lucas is surprising me by managing to push Viz onto the ropes, but Viz is rolling himself as he switches positions with Lucas onto the ropes! These two competitors don’t want to be backed away to the ropes for a long period of time! Viz manages to back Lucas onto the ropes as he has his hands on Lucas’ chest as the official begins his count!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! HANDS OFF, VIZ!
Deadprez: The Visual Prophet manages to back away from Lucas Johnson! Viz has his hands where the official can see them! Lucas straightened himself away from the ropes as he looks to be going for a test of strength onto Viz! Viz seems to accept that test of strength — LUCAS MANAGES TO KICK VIZ IN THE STOMACH BEFORE GETTING HIM BY HIS ARM AND WHIPPING HIM TO THE ROPES! VIZ REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES WITH AN EASE! LUCAS GOES TO CONNECT WITH A HIPTOSS ON VIZ, BUT VIZ MANAGES TO CATCH HIMSELF ON HIS FEET! VIZ CONNECTS WITH AN ELBOW TOWARDS LUCAS’ FACE AS THAT BACKS HIM A BIT! VIZ GOES RIGHT AFTER THE FORMER NEW BREED CHAMPION WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE BETWEEN LUCAS’ LEGS AND TAKING HIM DOWN! IT SEEMS LIKE HE’S GOING FOR A ROLL UP, BUT LUCAS MANAGES TO ROLL HIMSELF OUT OF THAT ROLL UP ATTEMPT, BUT VIZ MANAGES TO CATCH LUCAS WITH A DROPKICK THE MOMENT HE ROLLS HIMSELF OUT! Lucas falls to his back, but Lucas manages to find himself back to his feet! Viz gets to his feet as well! Lucas with a big clothesline! Viz manages to duck the clothesline before connecting with an elbow back to the Wrestling Machine’s head! THIS DROPS LUCAS TO ONE KNEE AS VIZ REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES TO CONNECT WITH RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE BACK OF LUCAS’ HEAD! LUCAS FALLS AGAINST THE ROPES! LUCAS IS DRAPED ON THE SECOND ROW OF ROPES AS VIZ BEGINS STEP ON THE FORMER NEW BREED CHAMPION’S SHOULDERS! VIZ IS CHOKING LUCAS IN THE PROCESS AS HE HOLDS HIM THERE!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! GET OFF, VIZ!
Gavin Kirkland: The Visual Prophet manages to get off Lucas Johnson’s shoulders! Viz gets Lucas by the shoulders before pulling him back! Albert Hitchman seems to be quite concerned ringside! Things have not been going well for his client in this match! Viz manages to pick Lucas back to his feet before getting him over his shoulder and connecting with the Prophet Driver — DEATH VALLEY DRIVER ON LUCAS! THAT MOVE TAKES HIM DOWN! BY THAT EVIL SMIRK ON VIZ’ FACE, HE’S LOOKING TO END THIS MATCH AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! VIZ IS STALKING LUCAS UP TO HIS FEET! VIZ RUSHES FORWARD — KISS TO THE HEAD!
Deadprez: ALBERT HITCHMAN MANAGES TO GET LUCAS JOHNSON BY HIS ANKLES AND PULL HIM OUT OF THE RING! IT MAY HAVE NOT BEEN THE NICEST WAY TO GET LUCAS OUT OF THE RING, BUT IT MAY HAVE BEEN BENEFICIAL IN THE LONG RUN! THE CROWD ISN’T TOO HAPPY ABOUT THAT!
Gavin Kirkland: The Visual Prophet is not letting Lucas Johnson escape from him so easily! He gets on the top turnbuckle! He is looking directly at Lucas and Albert Hitchman before flying off the top rope! CROSSBODY ON LUCAS AND ALBERT! BOTH MEN DO THEIR BEST TO CATCH VIZ, BUT IT IS NO LUCK! VIZ GETS UP RIGHT AWAY! THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ENOUGH TO KEEP HIM DOWN FOR THE TIME BEING! THE FACT THAT HE GOT UP RIGHT AWAY IS AMAZING! VIZ HANDS HIS ARMS WIDE OPEN IN CONFIDENCE! THE CROWD IS SHOWERING HIM WITH A MIXED REACTION BEFORE GETTING LUCAS JOHNSON BACK TO HIS FEET!
Deadprez: BUT, LUCAS JOHNSON MANAGES TO PUSH THE VISUAL PROPHET AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE APRON! THIS MAY HAVE BEEN THE OPENING LUCAS NEEDED TO SHIFT THIS MATCH TO HIS FAVOR! THE WRESTLING MACHINE GETS VIZ BEFORE BODYSLAMING HIM AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE APRON AGAIN! VIZ IS CLUTCHING HIS LOWER BACK AS HE LETS OUT A HUGE CRY OF PAIN! LUCAS DEMANDS FOR VIZ TO GET BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE! IT IS TAKING VIZ SOMETIME TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET! THE MOMENT THAT VIZ MAKES IT BACK TO HIS FEET, LUCAS GETS VIZ BY HIS ARM BEFORE WHIPPING HIM AGAINST THE BARRICADE! VIZ TRIES TO CATCH ONTO THE BARRICADE AND MAKE SURE THAT HIS LANDING WAS AS SOFT AS POSSIBLE! LUCAS IS NOT PLANNING TO STOP ANYTIME SOON AS HE GOES RIGHT AFTER BAETHOVEN WITH A BIG BOOT! VIZ FALLS INTO A SEATED POSITION! LUCAS WITH A PERFECT DROPKICK ONTO VIZ’ FACE! LUCAS ROLLS HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET AGAIN BEFORE GETTING THE VISUAL PROPHET AND ROLLING HIM BACK INSIDE THE RING! VIZ IS ALREADY ON HIS BACK AS LUCAS CONNECTS WITH A KNEE DROP BEFORE GOING FOR THE COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: The Visual Prophet kicks out at two! That does not phase Lucas Johnson as it seems like he is going to continue to wear Viz down! Lucas gets Viz into a seated position as he begins to pull back on Viz’ arms! Lucas has his knee against Viz’ back! Lucas is the Wrestling Machine after all and he is looking to show how good of a wrestler he is going up against someone as talked about as The Visual Prophet! Lucas manages to transition that move into a headlock takedown! That’s a beautiful transition there as Lucas is continuing his mission to keep Viz down! Lucas manages to take the headlock into one knee! He still maintains grasp on! Viz is doing everything in his power to push Lucas away from him and release himself from this headlock, but Lucas wrenches in the headlock on Viz! This is making it even more difficult for Viz to get out of the hold! Lucas connects with a snapmare before connecting with a shoot kick on Viz’ back! That releases the headlock in the process, but Lucas doesn’t seem to be done here!
Deadprez: Lucas Johnson takes The Visual Prophet down and gets him by his legs! It seems like Lucas is going for the Boston crab! Viz is doing his best to make sure that Lucas does not connect with his move! It seems like Lucas has done a good job with weakening Viz back as much as possible! The bumps Viz took ringside should be playing a factor at the moment! Viz’ body is almost turned around, but Lucas begins to stomp on Viz at his face! Viz cannot take the hits to his face as Lucas manages to fully apply the Boston crab! In the middle of the ring, we see The Visual Prophet struggling to move closer to the bottom rope! I don’t see him submitting here, Gavin!
Gavin Kirkland: THE LOOK OF PAIN OF THE VISUAL PROPHET’S FACE IS EVERYTHING AT THE MOMENT! LUCAS JOHNSON WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO GET A VICTORY HERE! GETTING A VICTORY OVER SOMEONE AS TALKED AND HYPED ABOUT AS VIZ WOULD BE AMAZING FOR HIM! VIZ BEGINS TO DRAG HIMSELF TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! HE IS SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF STILL BEING IN THIS MATCH! BUT, LUCAS MANAGES TO PULL VIZ AWAY FROM THE ROPES AGAIN! HE STILL HAS THAT BOSTON CRAB APPLIED! VIZ IS STILL NOT GIVING OUT WITHOUT A FIGHT! HE IS STILL IN THIS MATCH! VIZ IS DRAGGING HIMSELF TO THAT BOTTOM ROPE! THE LOOK OF CONFIDENCE IN LUCAS’ FACE IS FADING AWAY! THE MOMENT HE FELT VIZ MOVING, LUCAS BEGAN TO BECOME CONCERNED ABOUT WHETHER VIZ WILL MAKE IT TO THE ROPES! LUCAS IS TRYING TO KEEP VIZ BACK, BUT VIZ IS TRYING TO PULL HIMSELF TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! HE IS NOT PLANNING TO LOSE TONIGHT!
Deadprez: HE GRASPS ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! LUCAS MUST RELEASE THE HOLD HERE!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! LET GO, LUCAS!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas Johnson releases the Boston crab! The Visual Prophet is clutching onto his back! Even though Lucas didn’t manage to make Viz submit there, Lucas did some damage onto Viz’ back! Viz is clutching onto the bottom rope as he is trying to provide himself with sometime to recover! Lucas is not looking to give that to Viz as he manages to get Baethoven back to his feet!
Deadprez: THE VISUAL PROPHET CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO LUCAS JOHNSON! LUCAS CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM BACK TO VIZ! VIZ CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO LUCAS AGAIN! LUCAS CONNECTS WITH A FOREARM TO VIZ AGAIN! BOTH OF THESE ELITISTS ARE TRYING TO DROP THE OTHER! VIZ GOES FOR A NASTY FOREARM! THAT MANAGES TO STAGGER LUCAS BACK! VIZ MANAGES TO GET ANOTHER FOREARM AGAIN! THIS TIME, THE FOREARM MANAGES TO KNOCK THE WRESTLING MACHINE TO THE ROPES! VIZ MANAGES TO GET LUCAS ON HIS SHOULDERS — PROPHET DRIVER TO LUCAS JOHNSON! VIZ GOES FOR THE COVER RIGHT HERE! THIS COULD BE THE ONE THING THAT ENDS THE MATCH!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas Johnson manages to get a shoulder up at the two count! Lucas is not planning on losing this match as all! He would love to get another match on the win column! Lucas is a superb wrestler and there’s no denying that! The Visual Prophet manages to deliver the Kiss to Lucas’ forehead! That’s the one thing that Viz normally does before going for the Kiss to the Head! Viz is stalking Lucas up to his feet! This time, it seems like Lucas is struggling to get back to a vertical base! Look, Deadprez! Look at who’s on the apron!
Deadprez: ALBERT HITCHMAN IS ON THE APRON! HE’S YELLING AT THE VISUAL PROPHET! IS ALBERT CRAZY? DOES HE KNOW WHAT HE IS GETTING HIMSELF INTO? VIZ IS ALMOST LOOKING CONFUSED AS HE HAS NO IDEA WHY ALBERT IS ON THE APRON? WHY WOULD ALBERT GET ON THE APRON KNOWING THE TYPE OF COMPETITOR VIZ IS? VIZ BEGINS TO CHUCKLE AT ALBERT’S ATTEMPTS TO DISTRACT HIM!
Gavin Kirkland: KISS TO THE HEAD ON ALBERT HITCHMAN OUT OF NOWHERE! THE EVIL GENIUS GETS KNOCKED OFF THE APRON! LUCAS JOHNSON MANAGES TO TURN HIMSELF AROUND — FEEL THE PAIN ON VIZ! THE JUMPING CUTTER CONNECTS AS LUCAS GOES FOR THE COVER! WE ARE SECONDS AWAY FROM PROBABLY THE BIGGEST UPSET THIS SEASON SO FAR!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Deadprez: The Visual Prophet has his foot underneath the bottom rope! This is wonderful ring awareness from the former New Breed Champion! Lucas Johnson has a look of frustration on his face! How in the world was that move not enough? He is trying to tell the official that it was a three count! That the three count was made before Viz could get his foot on the bottom rope, but the referee claims that Viz had his foot on the bottom rope before the three count could be made! LUCAS IS LOOKING AT THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! IT SEEMS LIKE LUCAS IS LOOKING TO WRAP UP THIS MATCH! HE HAS THE VISUAL PROPHET WHERE HE WANTS HIM! LUCAS SITUATES HIMSELF ON THE TOP ROPE! HE IS GOING FOR THE RED ARROW — THE CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR PRESS! VIZ IS IN PERFECT POSITION FOR LUCAS TO CONNECT WITH THIS MOVE! LUCAS FROM THE TOP ROPE! RED ARROW!
Gavin Kirkland: THE VISUAL PROPHET MOVES HIMSELF OUT OF THE WAY! LUCAS JOHNSON MANAGES TO ROLL HIMSELF INTO LANDING! HE DOESN’T CRASH THANKS TO THE RED ARROW, BUT LUCAS GETS TO HIS FEET!
Deadprez: OUT OF NOWHERE, KISS TO THE HEAD ON LUCAS JOHNSON! LUCAS DROPS TO HIS BACK! THE VISUAL PROPHET GOES FOR THE COVER!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Another One Bites The Dust” plays through the speakers again as The Visual Prophet gets rises back to his feet in order to get his hand raised by official! Albert Hitchman rolls Lucas Johnson out of the ring. He is glaring at Viz as Viz celebrates inside the ring.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THE MATCH … THE VISSSSSSUUUUUUAAAAAALLLLLLLLL PRRRRROOOOOOPHHHHHEEEEEEEETTTTT!!!
Gavin Kirkland: What a main event! :whew: The Visual Prophet manages to connect with the Kiss to the Head out of nowhere! I swear, no one on the Showdown roster is safe from that move!
Deadprez: Not even Lucas Johnson! Lucas put on an impressive match! It was smart of him to target The Visual Prophet’s back the entire match! There were a few occasions where I thought Lucas was going to win the match! Feel The Pain should have been enough to end Viz! Viz getting his foot onto the bottom rope at the last second showed his wonderful ring awareness!
Gavin Kirkland: Well, that includes this edition of Showdown? There are so many things that I want to figure out? Who will be part of Jamie O’Hara’s War Games team? Who is Mr. DEDEDE’s secret admirer? Is Cameron Ella Ava really next in line for a Universal Women’s Championship Match? Will Kassidy Heart ever show her fine ass on Showdown? Perhaps, there will be answers next week? As for tonight, I am “El Guapo” Gavin Kirkland! He is Deadprez! Goodnight, see you next week!
