(EAW intro appears.)
(RECAP: Highlights of last week’s episode of Showdown are seen. First, it pans to the segment where Mr. DEDEDE’s secret admirer is revealed. It happens to be The Visual Prophet’s assistant and friend Nina Dobrev. Things seem to be going well until Mr. DEDEDE pours the bowl of hot wax on Nina’s face. She is left screaming and crying. Mr. DEDEDE is laughing at the entire situation. Nina is being escorted by multiple officials out of the arena. Second, it goes to Jenny Cien versus Viktor Stone. Jenny manages to roll up Viktor, but Viktor is seen getting his hand on the bottom rope. Viktor is trying to tell the official of his hand on the bottom rope as Jenny celebrates before she gets a mic and calls out Kensingten Calhon-Astor. “Hell on Heels” by The Pistol Annies plays through the speakers as it goes to the jumbotron with Kensingten who claims that Jenny will never be on her level.
Third, it goes to a segment with Heavenly Hell. Minerva claims that she and Constance Blevins have been overlooked and tossed aside because of their differences. They refuse to succumb to societal pressures and fall in line with the rest of the woman who play it safe. Constance states that nothing good will ever come to those who minimize Heavenly Hell’s significance to this company. She wants to let the locker room know that she is inviting them all for a fight. She is done with standing and waiting patiently for her turn to make something of herself. They two women look forward to asserting their dominance to any team that stands in their way. It concludes with Constance ripping the cross necklace from her neck and allows it to fall to the floor.
Fourth, it goes to a backstage segment with Myles and Xander Payne. Xander offers him some advice, but Myles denies the advice. It fast forwards to their match with Myles almost capitalizing the victory over Mark Michaels, but Xander comes down the ramp and asks Myles about what he was taught in his first day of wrestling school. Myles doesn’t seem to care, but replies with “what” and Xander says “never take your eyes off your opponents” before Mark rolls him up. Mark gets the victory as Harlow Reichert, who is on commentary, seems unimpressed. Mark is egging on her for a fight, but Harlow remains calm. Fifth, it goes to a segment with Cameron Ella Ava going to Showdown General Manager Jenny Punk backstage and requests that Cameron face a female Elitist next week since she’s pursuing the Universal Women’s Championship. Cameron also requests that Kassidy Heart be at Showdown next week as she wants to hear the champion accept her challenge at Territorial Invasion.
Sixth, it goes to Ahren Fournier backstage as he is talking with a producer. Chris Elite appears as he offers Ahren a spot in the Bozo Victims Unit before Detective Ty interjects himself in the discussion and warns Chris of what happened when Ahren aligned himself with someone. Chris denies of Ahren being at fault for what happened with the last person he aligned with. Detective Biggums then asks Chris about the bad blood between him and Ahren and if that’s really water under the bridge? Ahren manages to bring the entire group to one thing they have in common and that’s winning. It fasts forward to the tag team match against The Mechanical Animals as they dominate the team and win. Seventh, it goes to Jamie O’Hara backstage warming up before his Steel Cage Match against Lance Blackfyre as Jenny Punk taps him on the shoulder and informs Jamie of the reason why he is facing Lance in a Steel Cage Match. Jenny points out that she is trying to get Jamie “War Games Ready.” All Jamie needs to do is show up to these matches and show everyone why he is called The Ace. It goes to the main event as Lance Blackfyre is looking like an absolute monster against Jamie. Lance makes one wrong move as Lance gets his foot stuck on one of the camera holes of the steel cage. Jamie uses that chance to escape the cage and win the match. The recap ends with Jamie looking at Lance beating up the officials and making a mental note of the hell he will endure at Territorial Invasion.)
(“DNA” by Kendrick Lamar plays as people know that this is the start of Saturday Night Showdown! The song continues to play as it pans to ringside. The EAW Universe holds up their various signs, hoping that they can find themselves on television.)
(SCREEN BAR AT THE TOP LEFT CORNER: AUSTIN, TEXAS!)
(“DNA” continues to play throughout the arena as the crowd cheers. The camera lands on Deadprez and Gavin Kirkland at the commentary booth.)
Gavin Kirkland: WELCOME EVERYONE TO SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN! I AM THE MAN OF YOUR DREAMS, GAVIN KIRKLAND! THIS IS MY INFORMATIVE PARTNER, DEADPREZ!
Deadprez: Everything is bigger than Texas, Gavin! We got a big show tonight that makes Dynasty and Voltage seem like nothing at all!
Gavin Kirkland: We are on the road to Territorial Invasion, but we got an excellent card tonight! In our main event, we have a match that is nine months in the making! The one match that EVERYONE has been wanting to see!
Gavin Kirkland: The Ace of Elite Answers Wrestling and captain of Team Showdown, Jamie O’Hara takes on the man who has been dying to get a match with him since last season, Lucas Johnson! It’s a Last Man Standing Match and knowing how much Jamie is not fond of Lucas, it’s going to get ugly for sure!
Deadprez: Not only that, but we have Jamie O’Hara’s missus and potential contender for the Universal Women’s Championship, Cameron Ella Ava taking on one of the standouts from the Elimination Match at Midsummer Massacre, Io Ishimori! We also have one of the matches that Jenny Punk saw forming via social media and made into a match for tonight’s show, Ryan Wilson takes on The Visual Prophet. We will hear from Viz later in the show, but I don’t think he is too happy with what happened to his assistant, Nina D. Hopefully, we can get some insight on her condition.
Gavin Kirkland: Such an amazing show! Let’s get started with a match between two new breeds looking to make their way up the card. Take it away, Gina!
(“Wolves of Siberia” Behemoth hits as Shane Gates comes out followed by his now wife Angela Grant. Shane taunts the crowd on his way to the ring.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMAN THE OPENING CONTEST IS SET FOR ONE FALL!! INTRODUCING FIRST..FROM HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA..WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTEEN POUNDS….”THE FUCKING DYNASTY”….SSSHHAANNEEE GGGAATTTEESSS!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: WAIT THEY’RE MARRIED NOW?!
(“I Love It Loud” by Kiss blares the PA system as Shaker Jones comes out to a mixed reaction before walking to the ring looking focused on this match.)
Gina Romano: AND HIS OPPONENT…FROM INGLIS, MANITOBA, CANADA….WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY POUNDS….”THE HARDCORE HERO”,,,,,SSSHHAAKKERRR JOOONNEESSS!!!
Deadprez: Another guy who’s had a struggle recently. All can change with a victory here tonight. He’s a former BBB Bhampion for a reason.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: And this opening match is underway! Both men circling the ring trying to test each other’s strength before Shane hits a kick right to the midsection of Shaker! Now he hammers a shot to Shaker’s back. Now he puts Shaker in a suplex position but Shaker is blocking it but Shane is throwing punches to the stomach and now he gets up Shaker but Shaker reverses it and slips out from the back and hits a jumping neckbreaker! Shaker now hops on top of Shane throwing several haymakers!
Gavin Kirkland: And now Shaker picks up Shane aggressively by his hair and now places him in the corner. Shaker now hits a shoulder thrust in the corner! And another one! And now Shaker goes for the irish whip to the opposite corner but Shane reverses it and now Shane charges at Shaker in the corner but Shaker gets his boot up and gets Shane in the face! And now Shaker charges at Shane but Shane hits the back body drop!! And now Shane runs and hits a jumping elbow on Shaker! Shaker is trying to escape Shane but Shane is grabbing Shaker by his foot refusing to let him and now he flips over Shaker onto his back and Shaker is kicking Shane away from him! And Shaker kicks Shane in the face with his right foot and pushes Shane back and now Shane charges again and Shaker hits the drop toe hold on Shane!
Deadprez: Both men are back on their feet but Shaker has the head start and now he kicks Shane in the midsection and spikes Shane’s head on the mat with the DDT! He knows this won’t be enough as he picks up Shane is puts him on his shoulder…what does he have planned here?! But Shane is throwing elbows to the face of Shaker and now he slips out from behind and he pushes Shaker to the ropes from Shaker’s backside and Shaker bounces off the ropes and attempts a clothesline but Shane ducks under and hits the Pele Kick! He covers!
Gavin Kirkland: Shane is back to his feet right away and now he picks up Shaker from the front and Shaker slaps Shane’s hands away and throws a hard headbutt to the face of Shane! And Shane is holding his nose in pain as he stumbles back a few steps and now…SHAKER RUNS TO THE ROPES AND SPRINGBOARDS OFF OF IT AND HITS A KICK RIGHT TO THE HEAD OF SHANE!! BUT SHANE IS ROLLING TO THE APRON OF THE RING AS SHAKER IS TRYING TO STOP HIM! AND NOW SHAKER IS CLUTCHING THAT BOTTOM ROPE AND SHAKER PICKS UP SHANE BY HIS HEAD FROM INSIDE THE RING WHILE SHANE IS ON THE OUTSIDE AND WOAH SHANE JUST HIT A CLOTHESLINE KNOCKING SHAKER TO THE GROUND! SHANE TAKES THIS OPPORTUNITY TO GO UP TOP AND WE DON’T SEE THIS MUCH OUT OF HIM! SHANE TAKES FLIGHT-
Deadprez: SHAKER GOT HIS KNEES UP!!! AND NOW SHAKER TURNS IT INTO A PIN!!
Deadprez: SHANE GETS OUT OF IT!! BOTH MEN ARE TO THEIR FEET AGAIN BUT SHANE IS HOLDING HIS STOMACH FROM THE KNEES TO HIS STOMACH A SECOND AGO AND SHAKER NOW PLACES HIM BETWEEN HIS LEGS!! BUT SHANE IS FIGHTING IT-BACK BODY DROP!!! BUT SHAKER COUNTERS IT INTO A PIN!!
Gavin Kirkland: SHANE ESCAPES IT AGAIN! BOTH MEN RACE TO THEIR FEET AND BOTH MEN HIT A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE ON EACH OTHER! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN NOW!! WHO WANTS THIS MAN MORE?
Deadprez: SHANE IS UP TO HIS FEET FIRST HERE HOLDING THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AND NOW HE RUNS AT SHAKER BUT SHAKER CATCHES HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS LOOKING FOR THE SHAKEMASTER BUT SHANE IS DESPERATELY THROWING ELBOWS TRYING TO ESCAPE AND NOW HE HOLDS ON TO THE ROPE IN FRONT OF HIM REFUSING TO ALLOW SHAKER TO EXECUTE THE SHAKEMASTER!! AND SHAKER IMPROVISES AND TOSSES HIM STOMACH FIRST ON THE TOP ROPE!! AND NOW SHAKER GRABS THE LEGS OF THE DANGLING SHANE AND THROWS A KICK TO THE CHEST AREA TO SHANE?! DID YOU HEAR THAT?! ANGELA IS LOOKING ON IN HORROR!!
Deadprez: SHAKER NOW WALKS TO SHANE BUT SHANE GRABS THE FRONT OF SHAKER’S TRUNKS AND PULLS HIM THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AND SHAKER LANDS ON HIS HEAD ON THE OUTSIDE! AND NOW SHANE IS TO HIS FEET AND RUNS TO THE ROPES…SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE ON SHAKER AND SHANE NOT WASTING ANY TIME AS HE THROWS SHAKER BACK IN THE RING AND HE SLIDES IN THE RING WAITING FOR SHAKER TO RISE TO HIS FEET….HE RUNS…..BUT SHAKER CATCHES HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS AGAIN!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(Shane stands up holding his head as Angela is going crazy on the outside and the referee raises his hand and then Angela comes in and hugs him before also raising his hand.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH……SSHHHAAANNNEEE GGGAATTTEESSS!!!!
Deadprez: Shane gets the very much needed win here tonight! Great start for him on his reboot but also take absolutely nothing away from Shaker in that matchup. Shane had to use a thumb to the eye to his advantage but a win is a win I guess. Congrats to Shane!
( “Another One Bites The Dust” by Queen hits, and the arena lights transform creating an atmosphere only fitting for The Visual Prophet, who can be seen walking through the curtain dressed to compete. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!! Introducing first, from Detroit, Michigan, weighing in at 230 POOOUNNNDSS…. THEEEEEEE VISUUUAALLLLLLLLLL PROOOOPPPHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Visual Prophet as a competitor has been on a wonderful roll over the past number of weeks, but from a personal standpoint, he seems to be in shambles. Don’t let the charisma and the eclectic machismo fool you, the poor lad is suffering inside.
Deadprez: Can you blame him? Let’s get a look back at what took place last week during the horrific incident between Answers World Champion Mr. DEDEDE, and Vizzy’s personal apprentice, and ex DDD fanatic, Nina Dobrev. I gotta warn you all of course, the following images contain some uhhh, disturbing images.
( Flashback to last week’s Showdown opening segment, where Nina Dobrev revealed herself to be Mr. DEDEDE’s secret admirer. She has the ring propped up to be a BDSM playpen, and she performs a striptease for Mr. DEDEDE promising to satisfy his Gawdly desires. Nina fed into one of DDD’s biggest fetishes, “wax play”, handing DDD a container of hot wax and preparing herself to be used as the Answers World Champion’s play thing. DDD took the encounter to a sadistic level, pouring the entire bowl of hot wax over Nina’s face, and we see Nina screaming and rolling around in agony while a nonchalaunt Mr. DEDEDE shrugged his shoulders and simply walked away. )
( Camera transitions back to the ring, and Visual Prophet paces around the ring with a microphone in hand. Visual Prophet removes his shades, revealing a look of genuine sadness in his eyes as he is forced to address the condition of his fallen apprentice. )
Visual Prophet: Some men just want to see the world burn. Others would rather burn the delicate skin of innocent Russian apprentices to satisfy their sadist urges. If it seems a little empty out here tonight, it’s because my poor assistant Nina Dobrev is still recovering from the acts of unspeakable cruelty at the hands of a dusty old depraved tyrant. I dare not replay the footage… but think of the consequences, the long standing ramifications, the children in the audience who will be replaying the footage in their minds on repeat for the rest of their lives. You’ve scarred them Ryan Adams, and worse than that, you’ve disfigured a person who was close to me.
My poor Nina suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns all over her face and torso. Unfortunately, I don’t have a Gawd Contract and all of the illuminati money that comes with it, I don’t have access to the world class medical practitioners that come with it. The doctors who perform Bill Clinton’s yearly quintuple bypass surgeries. Who kept David Rockefeller going for 103 years. Who kept Bobbi Kristina at bay. Who keep DDD and Impact in fighting shape. Who pieced Chris Elite back together from smithereens. All Nina has is third world janky Russian healthcare, and it’ll take a vial of Rasputin’s blood and Putin’s political power to sign off on the medical breakthroughs needed to make her whole again.
But Vizzy will find a way, such as Vizzy does. Still, the physical toll hardly compares to the emotional turmoil that the poor woman has endured. We saw a woman willing to be vulnerable for a man before the world, and what did he do? He dashed her hopes, like a candle in the wind, a light was extinguished from the moment candle wax hit her skin. Nina will never be the same, and the blame lies squarely on the shoulders of one man… one,
( “Let It Go” by A$AP Ferg hits, interrupting Visual Prophet’s monologue. Mr. DEDEDE walks out to the stage dressed in a Gawdzilla Pro “Valor White” tracksuit and the Answers World Championship around his waist. A shit eating grin is smeared all over his face, and dark shades hide his gleeful eyes. DDD continues to the ring, eventually entering and completely shrugging off the venomous glare of an enraged Visual Prophet. DDD is handed a microphone from an official upon his request, and DDD stands across from Viz with a hand in his pocket, maintaining a nonchalaunt demeanor about him. )
Visual Prophet: What the hell are you so happy about huh? You’re proud of what you did, aren’t you? It’s all just a big joke to you isn’t it? It’s all fun and games. I’ll admit it, maybe I haven’t been the most thoughtful mentor to her, but Nina’s still my FRIEND damn it! Laugh it up you dusty old bag of bones, but I’M TAKING THIS SHIT PERSONAL. You don’t get it. You’ll never get it. For all that you have in the world, the fame, the fortune, the fandoms, the phantoms, the phantasmal reputation that precedes you. The one thing you don’t have is genuine loyalty. You know nothing of it. LOOK at yourself, DDD. You have a WIFE! A NIECE! A DAUGHTER! You have women in your life that you need to protect, and still you uphold this tired “hard on hoes” philosophy as if karma isn’t the biggest bitch of any you’ve had to deal with.
Mr. DEDEDE: You know you’re goddamn right Viz. Karma is a bitch. And like every other bitch I’ve had to deal with, I’ll put a bitch in her place. Breaking news: The Gawd’s got shit to lose. What else is new. Really, tell me something that I don’t know. It doesn’t change the way I carry out business. Without mercy, unadulterated, and absolutely uncompromising. It’s no different whether I’m in the sack with some Russian whore or I’m in the ring with some bald prosperity pimp. I gave Carlos Cruz such a horrific beating that I made sure his made up relatives could feel it. It wasn’t nothing personal, and neither was what I did to Nina.
So I’m sorry Viz if you took what I did to your mail ordered assistant personally. That sounds like a “you” problem. I’m not a therapist, I’m not a shrink, I’m Genghis Khan. I conquer. I plunder. I pillage. I brutalize. Women’s bodies are my playthings. So are civilizations. All that exists within this realm is subject to my whim. If you’re in my company you have two options really (1) get over (2) get over it.
Visual Prophet: You fool, even a Gawd is subject to The Sovereign when in his divine presence. Let that register in your senile mind you crusty ass angry crab. You know you’ve got shit to lose, I know you’ve got shit to lose, but what you don’t know that I know is that you’ve got an Answers World Championship to lose. To The Visual Prophet.
( The audience cheers. DDD removes his shades, looking at him with intrigue. )
Visual Prophet: You almost took away somebody who meant something to me, so I’m going to take away what means more than human life itself to you. Except…wait for the kicker.. I’ve already taken it. See this was coming DDD, and you knew it was coming. At some point you and I had to cross paths. I’ve been on a God level run, I’m about to run laps around Ryan Wilson, even during a lapse I’d still run tracks around Ryan Wilson. The Answers World Championship isn’t even what you’re fighting for. It isn’t what you’re going on tirades over. It isn’t what you’re holding the show hostage over. What you’re really fighting so hard to defend, is the very thing I’ve been handed from the moment Bae walked through these doors. The :key:
To the kingdom. To the throne room. To the hearts of many. To the mind of millions. To Pandora’s Box. Upon my arrival they keys to the city were bestowed to me. They were placed in my hands, new sheriff in town now “Sheriff.” And begrudgingly, before you knew it, you were relegated from being the almighty sovereign ruler to ‘sovereign’ backwards, reign’s fucking over.
Mr. DEDEDE: I’ve heard it a million times –
Visual Prophet: And for the first time you feel it. In your core, in the pit of your bloated grandpa guts. You know it to be true. I’m the new you, except, not even of your ilk. That’s what burns you deeper than the wax that burnt Nina’s skin. That’s what singes to your roots like an MJ Pepsi commercial. I’m not one of your wannabe offsprings. I’m no overly ambitious DDD clone. I’m not your prototypical edgy lowkey racist blond haired fuckboy. I’m originality incarnate, simply primed for your position, and once I pry that Answers World Championship from your grubby arthritic hands, your dying wails won’t even be heard. Baethovens symphony will drown out the remainder of your swan song. Permanently.
( DDD laughs )
Mr. DEDEDE: You amuse me, you know that? You’ve amused me from day one. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not because you’re original, it’s the same tired old take as usual. But the different spin is what interests me. It’s the nuance that piques my curiosity. Because, see, I know you’re a special guy Viz. But I think it’s no secret that I’ve all but ignored your existence from the beginning. That’s for a reason. It’s because you aren’t ready.
Visual Prophet: Oh Ryan, I may be young but I’m ready.
( The two share an awkward moment of tension. )
Mr. DEDEDE: I don’t think you understand. It took Xavier Williams years to share the ring with me. It took Jamie O’Hara years to engage with me. It’s taken years of preparation at the EAW level of competition for some of the greatest to ever do it to share a Marquee stage with The Gawd. All for the laundry list of legends to fall short. You may think you’re the exception. Everybody thinks they’re the exception, until the day of execution. But I’ll tell you what Viz. Territorial Invasion is upon the horizon, and I don’t have anything planned for that evening. It’s not like Jamie O’Hara is going to swallow his pride and ask me to lead another team into victory in War Games. So I’ll oblige, I’ll give you an opportunity at the Answers World Championship at Territorial Invasion.
( Crowd cheers. )
Mr. DEDEDE: But on the condition that we raise the stakes. Next week you and I are going to have a challenge on our hands. A Beat The Clock Challenge. You and I will compete in separate matches. Whoever finishes with the best time, which will obviously be me, will have full control over the terms of our TI match. And if you’re wondering what the point of it is, it’s very simple. I’m giving you the only real opportunity you’ll ever get against me. Understand. A fair fight with me doesn’t exist. Level playing terms mean nothing when you’re in the ring with a giant. A fair shake versus me is tantamount to a raw deal. Should you somehow manage to win the Beat The Clock Challenge, you get free reign over the terms and conditions of our championship match. You get every opportunity in the world at tipping the scales to your favor, or in other words, evening the odds. But should I win…
( DDD cackles under his breath. )
Mr. DEDEDE: Let’s just hope for your sake that it doesn’t happen.
( DDD drops the mic, and exits the ring. Visual Prophet continues to trash talk, as “Another One Bites The Dust” picks back up. )
Gavin Kirkland: ASTRONOMICAL NEWS COMING OUT OF WHAT WE JUST SAW! FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER THE VISUAL PROPHET WILL GO ONE ON ONE WITH MR. DEDEDE, IN A MATCH FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! THAT’LL TAKE PLACE AT TERRITORIAL INVASION SEPTEMBER 22ND AND 23RD ON THE EAW NETWORK!
Deadprez: Is it too early to call this a dream match?? DDD vs Viz??? Fam I don’t even think my body is ready to see that!
Gavin Kirkland: Two of the biggest personalities and the most electrifying Elitists in all of EAW today will clash! Don’t go anywhere, Visual Prophet is still in action following the break, after a word from our sponsors!
(Commercial for Territorial Invasion on why Showdown is the best brand in EAW featuring Jamie O’Hara!)
(Showdown fades back in from commercial and Viz’s opponent for tonight, Ryan Wilson, is now in the ring having come out during the break. “My Way” by Limp Bizkit fades out and the referee checks with both men to make sure they’re ready to begin. Wilson trash talks Viz. Viz gyrates his hips. The referee simply calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: I’m sorry but I can’t look at Ryan Wilson right now and think of anything other than him being a freckle faced ginger bitch and the 7th hottest redhead in Elite Answers Wrestling.
Deadprez: You just memorize Viz promos like that?
Gavin Kirkland: Well the list of hot redheads got me thinking. You know as well as I do that out of all the redheads in this company, Ryan Wilson is probably the only one who can say the carpet matches the drapes.
Gavin Kirkland: 😀 Wilson immediately goes on the attack and catches Viz with a running knee to the face! Viz stumbles back and Wilson lowers his head and drives his shoulder into Viz’s gut!

Gavin Kirkland: That doesn’t stop Little Orphan Ryan though! He mounts Viz and is hammering away! Wow! Ryan Wilson has certainly come out on fire tonight and looking to prove a point! He’s not hidden the fact he wants Mr. DEDEDE in the ring ASAP, but seems perfectly content to take his anger and frustrations out on Viz.
Deadprez: The former New Breed Champion finally muscles Wilson off and tries to get back to his feet! Wilson immediately raining down double axe-handle shots to the back! Viz is flattened on the mat right now and Wilson is up and stomping away on Viz’s back!

Ryan Wilson looking for the ankle lock, which is one of Viz’s go to moves but Viz is able to kick him back! Viz quickly rolls out of the ring right as Wilson gets back up!!
Gavin Kirkland: Man. The former ‘Face of Empire’ probably didn’t expect his adversary tonight to come out with this much fire but here we are!

VIZ GRABS WILSON BY THE HAIR AND THROWS HIM ACROSS THE RING!

Deadprez: BUT WILSON GETS HIS FEET UP! VIZ IS SENT STUMBLING BACK AND WILSON PUSHES HIMSELF OUT OF THE CORNER AND TAKES VIZ DOWN WITH A HUGE FOREARM SHOT TO THE JAW! THE VISUAL PROPHET DROPS TO HIS KNEES AND RYAN WILSON NAILS HIM WITH A STRAIGHT KICK TO THE FACE! VIZ FALLS AGAINST THE ROPES… BASEMENT STYLE DROPKICK! VIZ IS KNOCKED OUT OF THE RING AND HE HITS THE GROUND!
Gavin Kirkland: Wilson wastes no time rolling to the outside and grabbing Viz! He throws him back into the ring and pulls himself up onto the apron. Viz is back up though and he runs towards the ropes! Wilson eats an elbow to the jaw that sends him back down to the floor! Wilson quickly kicks back up and climbs back on the apron, right as Viz rushes forward again! Wilson darts between the ropes and catches Viz in the stomach with his shoulder! Wilson grabs Viz’s head and snaps Viz’s neck across the top rope!
Deadprez: Wilson slips back into the ring and climbs on top of Viz for the cover!!!
Gavin Kirkland: KICKOUT BY VIZZY!!!
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson is quickly back up and he rushes the ropes! Viz is back up too! Viz leapfrogs over Wilson! Wilson rebounds and leaps in the air looking for a superman punch, BUT VIZ CATCHES HIM IN THE AIR AND SLAMS HIM TO THE MAT WITH A SPINEBUSTER!!!!

Viz looks to hit Wilson with a right hand, but Wilson blocks! He slams his fist into Viz’s mouth and bounces the former New Breed Champion’s face right off the apron! He slams Viz’s face into the apron three more times before rolling him back inside! Wilson slides into the ring and crawls over Viz for the cover!
Deadprez: Viz kicks out!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Wilson sits up, frustration written all over his face! I can’t even begin to imagine the pain he must feel in his ankle right now, Deadprez.
Deadprez: Ryan Wilson is a fighter though, and he’s forcing himself up. He’s favoring the ankle, but he’s pulling Viz up! Wilson is looking to hoist Viz up but Viz blocks it! Viz peppering Wilson with unprotected shots to the gut now! Wilson has to let go of Viz, and Viz drives his knee up into Wilson’s face! VIZ STOMPS ON THE ANKLE AND RYAN WILSON CRUMBLES TO THE MAT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: VIZ IMMEDIATELY GOING FOR THE VIZ-LOCK, BUT RYAN WILSON ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AND GRABS THE ROPES! WILSON TRIES TO PULL HIMSELF UP WHILE VIZ STALKS HIM! VIZ LUNGES FORWARD LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE!!! VIZ CO- NO! WILSON PULLED THE ROPES DOWN AND VIZ GOES FLYING OVER THE TOP RO- NO! VIZ LANDS ON THE APRON! VIZ GRABS WILSON FROM BEHIND AND LEAPS OFF THE APRON! THE BACK OF RYAN WILSON’S NECK JUST SNAPPED ACROSS THE TOP ROPE!
Gavin Kirkland: VIZ SLIPS BACK INTO THE RING AND PULLS RYAN WILSON INTO THE CENTER! VIZ QUICKLY GOES TO THE TOP ROPE AND I THINK HE’S GOING TO TRY AND END THIS MATCH RIGHT HERE!!! THE VISUAL PROPHET TAKES TO THE SKIES!!! BOW TO THE HEART! THE FLYING ELBOW OFF THE TOP ROPE CONNE-
Deadprez: RYAN WILSON ROLLED OUT OF THE WAY! VIZ CRASHES TO THE MAT! SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY RYAN WILSON WAS ABLE TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY! SURELY THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE END OF THE MATCH OF VIZ HAD CONNECTED WITH THAT MOVE!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Now we have both men down and out! Ryan Wilson’s ankle and neck have been brutalized during this match, and The Visual Prophet has taken his fair share of punishment as well. His elbow connected with the mat, and he’s favoring it right now, Deadprez!
Deadprez: Viz is back to his feet first and he’s looking to grab Wilson, however Wilson is able to land a stiff right hand to Viz’s stomach! Viz stomps on Wilson’s ankle again and that stops Wilson! Viz looking for the Viz-Lock once again, but Wilson manages to use his free leg and boot Viz away from him! Viz hits the ropes, and Wilson grabs him from behind for a roll up!!!
Gavin Kirkland: VIZ MANAGES TO KICK OUT AND SCRAMBLE BACK TO HIS FEET! HE NAILS RYAN WILSON WITH A DROPKICK TO THE FACE AND THAT SENDS WILSON SPRAWLING BACK! VIZ IMMEDIATELY GRABS THE LEGS AND GOES FOR A COVER, BUT RYAN WILSON KICKS OUT BEFORE THE REFEREE CAN EVEN BEGIN TO COUNT! VIZ MOUNTS WILSON AND BEGINS PUNCHING HIM IN THE FACE AND HEAD! WILSON FIGHTS BACK AND CATCHES VIZ WITH A THUMB TO THE EYE! WILSON ON TOP NOW AND HE IS WAILING AWAY ON VIZ! OVER AND OVER WILSON’S FIST CONNECTS WITH VIZ’S FACE! VIZ TRIES TO FEND HIM OFF BUT WILSON WITH HIS SECOND OR THIRD OR WHATEVER WIND NOW! HE IS UNLOADING ON VIZ AND THE REFEREE ACTUALLY HAS TO STEP IN AND PRY HIM OFF OF VIZ! WILSON STILL FAVORING THAT ANKLE, BUT HE GRABS VIZ UP! UPPERCUT TO THE VISUAL PROPHET! WILSON WHIPS VIZ INTO THE ROPES AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A LOU THEZ PRESS! MORE PUNCHES FROM RYAN WILSON!!!!
Deadprez: HE REALLY HAS VIZ REELING NOW! WILSON CONTINUES TO SLAM HIS FIST INTO VIZ’S JAW! WILSON GETS UP AND GRABS VIZ! CHOP TO THE CHEST! ANOTHER CHOP! HE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH ANOTHER HUGE EUROPEAN UPPERCUT AND HE KICKS VIZ IN THE GUT! RYAN GRABS VIZ BY THE HEAD AND TRIES TO SET HIM UP FOR THE MIC DROP! RYAN WILSON LOOKING TO FINISH THE MATCH WITH THAT SMALL PACKAGE DRIVER BUT VIZ FIGHTS HIS WAY FREE!!! VIZ UNLEASHES A HUGE KICK TO THAT INJURED ANKLE AND RYAN WILSON FALLS TO THE MAT!
Gavin Kirkland: VIZ SHAKES OFF THE ONSLAUGHT OF OFFENSE THAT HE WAS JUST ON THE RECEIVING END OF AND HE STOMPS AWAY AT THE ANKLE!
Deadprez: Viz is no doubt sensing the end of this match is near AND HE GRABS WILSON BY THE ANKLE ONCE AGAIN AND DRAGS HIM TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! VIZ TWISTS THAT ANKLE AND BENDS IT BACK, TORQUING IT, AND NOW HE IS LOCKING HIM IN THE VIZ-LOCK! VIZ WITH THE VIZ-LOCK AND HE HAS IT LOCKED IN RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! RYAN WILSON IS FLAILING ABOUT AND TRYING TO WORK HIS WAY OUT OF THE HOLD BUT VIZ WRAPS HIS LEGS AROUND WILSON’S AND FALLS BACK!
Gavin Kirkland: THAT’S IT! THAT’S THE MATCH! RYAN WILSON IS TAPPING OUT AND THE REFEREE IS CALLING FOR THE BELL!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS YOUR WINNER… THE VISUAL PROPHET!!!
(Viz releases the Viz-Lock and falls back onto the mat. The referee immediately checks on Ryan who is holding his ankle.)
Deadprez: What a match between these two men, Gavin! Ryan Wilson came out on fire tonight and gave Viz everything he had!
Gavin Kirkland: But in the end, The Visual Prophet wisely chipped away at Ryan Wilson’s ankle and proved that he is much more than a pretty face. Viz is a cunning and calculated wrestler, and that’s the kind of fight he is going to have to bring to Mr. DEDEDE at Territorial Invasion. We all know that the Answers World Champion is one of the most ruthless individuals to ever step foot inside the ring, and Vizzy proved tonight that he can be just as smart and just as meticulous.
(The Visual Prophet has gotten up and the referee is raising his hand. Ryan Wilson has rolled to the outside of the ring and has refused help. The Canadian gets to his feet and begins to limp his way up the ramp, doing it under his own power, and knowing that he has his own battle to fight come Territorial Invasion.)
(Showdown fades to commercial break.)
(“Hell on Heels” The Pistol Annies plays through the speakers. By the sound of the music, the crowd knows to react negatively as Kensingten Calhoun-Astor makes her way out from the back. She is looking at the crowd with a disgusted look on her face.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL —
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM SAVANNAH, GEORGIA…SHE IS “THE STEEL MAGNOLIA OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING”… KEEEENNNNSSSSIIINNNNGGGGTEEEEENNNNN CAAAALLLLHOOOUUUUNNNNNNN-ASSSSSTOOOOORRRRRRRR!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Wasn’t that a mouthful, Deadprez? At least, she’s a blonde and Showdown needs all the blondes that we can get! She is a woman who is the definition of class! She is such a terrible human being, but I stan. :heart_eyes:
Deadprez: Kensingten Calhoun-Astor has had issues with Jenny Cien for the past couple of weeks. Jenny has been doing everything in her power to make sure that she gets her rematch after their encounter did not go the way Jenny would have hoped, but Kensingten doesn’t believe that Jenny is worth her time!
Gavin Kirkland: Those Latinas never know when to give up, Deadprez! Kensingten needs to worry about that.
(“Hell on Heels” dies down as “No More” by Disturbed plays as the crowd gives a mixed reaction to Constance Blevins with the Unified Tag Team Championship on her shoulder. Next to her is Minerva, who has her title on her shoulder. Both women looked focused with this match.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING HER OPPONENT…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY MINERVA…REPRESENTING HEAVENLY HELL…FROM BALTIMORE, MARYLAND…SHE IS ONE HALF OF THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…COOOOOONNNNNNSSSSSTAAAAANNNNNCCCCEEEEEE BLEEEEVVVVVVIIIINNNNNNSSSSSSS!!!!
Deadprez: This is Constance Blevins’ first match ever since distancing herself from God, but she believes that this is the best move to go with that. She is not waiting for her opportunities, she is going to get it! She and Minerva are awaiting for their next contenders to challenge them at Territorial Invasion. We could be hearing a response from anytime now!
Gavin Kirkland: Any team that faces Heavenly Hell are going to find themselves in trouble —
(“Jenny From The Block (Track Masters Remix)” by Jennifer Lopez, Jadakiss, and Styles P plays as the crowd gives a standing ovation as Jenny Cien walks out with her signature baseball bat on her shoulder. Kensingten Calhoun-Astor looks a bit off guard as Jenny stops as soon as she makes it down the ramp.)
Gavin Kirkland: We heard rumors about Jenny Cien lurking around this match, but it seems like those are true at the moment! I wonder if this throws Kensingten Calhoun-Astor off guard a bit? I’m curious to see if that changes her approach.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: With the Jenny Cien roaming around ringside, this match is underway! It seems like Kensingten Calhoun-Astor wasn’t expecting for Jenny to be being this close to the action. Perhaps, at commentary at the most, but Jenny has that fire personality that makes her unpredictable sometimes! I’m interested to see how Jenny is able to hold herself together as she watches Kensingten take on Constance Blevins!
Gavin Kirkland: We also need to remember that Minerva is at Constance’s corner, Deadprez! She could play a factor in this match! This eerie woman isn’t afraid to play dirty to win her matches! Kensingten looks at Jenny with the baseball bat slung over her shoulder and tells her to take a couple steps back! Kensingten wants to win the match with her own abilities! She is more than capable of doing that —
Deadprez: — IT SEEMS LIKE CONSTANCE BLEVINS IS NOT GOING TO WAIT FOR KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR TO GET SETTLED IN! CONSTANCE TAKES THE FIRST LADY DOWN WITH A SPEAR! SHE BEGINS TO UNLOAD ON KENSINGTEN WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES! CONSTANCE GETS KENSINGTEN BY HER HAIR AND DELIVERS A NASTY LOOKING HEADBUTT TO HER! KENSINGTEN WOBBLES BACK IN REACTION TO THAT HEADBUTT, BUT CONSTANCE GOES RIGHT AFTER HER WITH A CLOTHESLINE! That knocks the blonde to her back! Constance picks up Kensingten to a seated position before she connects with some sharp knees to the side of Kensingten’s head! Over and over again, Constance Blevins is driving that knee onto Kensingten’s skull! I am quite impressed with this more aggressive approach to Constance so far!
Gavin Kirkland: We saw a bit of the aggression from Constance Blevins on Empire last season, but it seems like distancing himself from “him” for the time being may reveal some of the potential that not many people were able to see! Constance tilts the side of Kensingten’s head as she places her knee against her back! As we look at the fiery Latina ringside, she is enjoying seeing the beautiful and blonde Kensingten Calhoun-Astor in pain! She would love nothing more than to make Kensingten suffer herself, but it seems like Jenny is going to settle with Constance making the blonde suffer! Constance pulls on the arms back, which inflicts more pain on Kensingten! The official is asking Kensingten if she wants to submit, but Kensingten is saying no!
Deadprez: Kensingten Calhoun-Astor would hate to lose in front of the woman she claims is not worth her time! Kensingten has something to prove and getting a victory over a woman that she can’t stand would be fantastic for her! Kensingten manages to rip one of her arms from the clutches on Constance Blevins! SHE USES THAT TO ELBOW CONSTANCE’S FACE, BUT CONSTANCE MANAGES TO SHIFT KENSINGTEN’S BODY AND GOES FOR SOME SORT OF BASEMENT ABDOMINAL STRETCH ON KENSINGTEN! KENSINGTEN IS CRYING OUT IN PAIN! SHE IS JUST GETTING A BIT OF AN IMPRESSION OF WHO SHE IS GETTING INTO THE RING AGAINST! I WOULDN’T WANT TO BE IN THE RING WITH THIS VERSION OF CONSTANCE!
Gavin Kirkland: CONSTANCE BLEVINS RELEASES THE ABDOMINAL STRETCH AS SHE EXITS THE RING THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE! SHE STICKS KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR’S HEAD FROM THE SECOND ROPE AND PROCEEDS TO KNEE THE LIVING HELL OUT OF KENSINGTEN! KENSINGTEN’S HEAD GOES BACK AFTER EACH KNEE STRIKE, BUT YOU CAN SEE THAT THEY ARE STARTING TO OVERWHELM HER! CONSTANCE WITH A BATTLE CRY AS KENSINGTEN FALLS BACK AFTER THE LAST KNEE STRIKE! CONSTANCE RETURNS TO THE RING BEFORE GETTING KENSINGTEN IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SNAP SUPLEX! CONSTANCE GOES FOR THE COVER!
Deadprez: Kensingten Calhoun-Astor gets a shoulder up! Jenny Cien seems to be really focused in this match! If she plans to get her match against Kensingten in the future, she might as well know what she can do to make sure that she does not fall to her again! Jenny’s only loss in EAW is because of Kensingten! Jenny has made sure never to forget that! Constance gets Kensingten to a vertical base before battery ramming her against the corner! CONSTANCE WITH A SERIES OF TURNBUCKLE THRUSTS ONTO THE RIBS OF KENSINGTEN! EACH TURNBUCKLE THRUSTS IS AS AGGRESSIVE AS THE OTHER! CONSTANCE TRANSITIONS THOSE TURNBUCKLE THRUSTS TO STOMPS! KENSINGTEN FALLS TO A SEATED POSITION BEFORE CONSTANCE PULLS KENSINGTEN CLOSER AND DELIVERS A SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE! CONSTANCE PICKS UP KENSINGTEN AGAIN BEFORE CONNECTING WITH ANOTHER SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! CONSTANCE PULLS KENSINGTEN UP BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A CALF KICK THAT TAKES THE BLONDE DOWN! CONSTANCE WITH ANOTHER BATTLE CRY LIKE ROAR!
(Kensingten Calhoun-Astor rolls out of the ring and heads for the ramp. She doesn’t believe that this match is worth her time. She really doesn’t need to win this match. Kensingten stops the moment that she sees Jenny Cien blocking the way. Jenny has her baseball bat in her possession. She seems like she is more than ready to begin whacking Kensingten with it.)
Gavin Kirkland: It seemed like Kensingten wanted to leave, but Jenny Cien is not going to let her leave! But —
Deadprez: CONSTANCE BLEVINS WITH A BASEMENT DROPKICK TO KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR! AT THE SAME TIME, SHE KNOCKS JENNY CIEN TO THE GROUND! CONSTANCE SEEMS LIKE SHE DOESN’T CARE AT ALL! KENSINGTEN GETS TO HER FEET AS KENSINGTEN BATTERY RAMS CONSTANCE ONTO THE EDGE OF THE APRON! CONSTANCE’S LOWER BACK COLLIDES WITH THE EDGE OF THE APRON AS YOU CAN SEE THE PAIN ON HER FACE! KENSINGTEN GETS CONSTANCE BY THE ARM AND WHIPS HER TO THE STEEL STEPS! CONSTANCE IS ON HER KNEES AS SHE SEEMS TO DISTANCE HERSELF A BIT FROM THE STEEL STEPS BUT KENSINGTEN RUNS TOWARDS HER BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN! CONSTANCE’S HEAD COLLIDES WITH THE STEEL STEPS AGAIN! KENSINGTEN GETS THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION BEFORE ROLLING HER BACK INTO THE RING! KENSINGTEN GOES FOR THE COVER!
Gavin Kirkland: Constance Blevins with kick out! Kensingten Calhoun-Astor connects with a front headlock to the champion! She gets the champion up while maintaining the front headlock! Kensingten releases the headlock, spins herself around before connecting with a spinning heel kick on Constance as that knocks her down to one knee! Kensingten rebounds herself from the horizontal ropes before following that up with a standing somersault leg drop on Constance! I know, we haven’t mentioned much on Minerva, but I like to believe that Minerva has enough faith in her partner to win this match! She knows that Constance will get through this! Kensingten slides out of the ring and she has a good hold of Constance’s right leg! This doesn’t look like it’s going to be nice, Deadprez! KENSINGTEN TAKES CONSTANCE NEAR THE RING POST! IT SEEMS LIKE SHE IS GOING TO APPLY A RING POST FIGURE FOUR — SLOW YOUR ROLL! CONSTANCE IS CRYING LOUDLY IN PAIN! I AM LOVING THIS APPROACHING FROM THE BEAUTIFUL BLONDE!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! RELEASE THE HOLD, KENSINGTEN!
Kensingten Calhoun-Astor: I know the rules of the match. No need to tell me.
Deadprez: Kensingten Calhoun-Astor releases Slow Your Roll on Constance Blevins! Kensingten gets Constance in the ring again! Minerva looks a bit concerned for Constance! Minerva is slamming her hands against the apron, trying to rally her partner back into the match! Constance tries to make it back to her feet, but Kensingten manages to stop Constance with a clothesline! Kensingten gets Constance Blevins before whipping her to the ropes! Constance rebounds off the ropes! Kensingten with a dropkick Constance falls back as Kensingten kips up! She has her arms out in confidence! The crowd is not liking that whatsoever! Kensingten turns her attention back at The Absolved and connects with a side headlock! Constance is trying to push Kensingten away from her, but Kensingten applies pressure onto that side headlock! Kensingten manages to take the Unified Tag Team Champion down! She transitions the side headlock to a front face lock! Kensingten connects with some punches to Constance’s back!
Gavin Kirkland: Constance Blevins is not falling down easily! She is doing everything her her power to make it to a vertical base! Kensingten Calhoun-Astor is trying keep Constance down, but Constance seems more successful at getting herself back to her feet! SHE RIPS AWAY FROM KENSINGTEN’S GRASP BEFORE DELIVERING A PUNCH OUT OF NOWHERE! KENSINGTEN IS TAKEN A BIT OFF GUARD DUE TO THE IMPACT OF THAT PUNCH, BUT SHE DELIVERS A PUNCH WITH THAT SAME FORCE BACK TO CONSTANCE! CONSTANCE WITH A HEADBUTT TO KENSINGTEN! THIS TAKES THE GORGEOUS BLONDE TO HER KNEE! CONSTANCE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A CALF KICK AND TAKES THE FIRST LADY DOWN! Constance gets Kensingten to her feet before connecting with a fisherman’s suplex! It was beautifully connected as Constances goes for the cover!
Deadprez: KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR KICKS OUT AT TWO! MINERVA IS TELLING CONSTANCE BLEVINS TO END THIS MATCH! CONSTANCE COULD NOT AGREE ANYMORE WITH HER PARTNER! KENSINGTEN MUST BE ENDED IN THIS MATCH! JENNY CIEN HAS HER EYES GLUED TO WHAT COULD POTENTIALLY BE THE END OF THE MATCH! CONSTANCE GETS KENSINGTEN TO POSITION FOR LIONESSTOUCH — THE CRADLE DDT!
Gavin Kirkland: CONSTANCE BLEVINS DROPS KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR! SHE IS HOLDING HER LEFT EYE IN PAIN! I THINK KENSINGTEN POKED CONSTANCE IN THE EYE! CONSTANCE DROPS DOWN INSTANTLY! IT SEEMS LIKE SHE IS GOING TO BUY HERSELF SOME TIME TO RECOVER NEAR THE ROPES! THE OFFICIALS ARE TENDING TOWARDS CONSTANCE! I THINK I’M GETTING A BIT WORRIED ABOUT HER! WAIT, LOOK AT THAT, DEADPREZ!
Deadprez: JENNY CIEN STRIKES KENSINGTEN CALHOUN-ASTOR’S SKULL WITH THE BASEBALL BAT! THE OFFICIAL DIDN’T SEE IT! KENSINGTEN IS OUT COULD AND IT SEEMS LIKE CONSTANCE BLEVINS IS GOING TO USE THAT OPPORTUNITY! SHE PICKS KENSINGTEN UP — LIONESSTOUCH! THIS TIME, THE MOVE CONNECTS AS CONSTANCE GOES FOR THE COVER!
OOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“No More” plays again as Constance Blevins rises back to her feet. Minerva joins her back into the ring and raises her partner’s hand in victory.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…ONE-HALF OF THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…COOOOOONNNNNNSSSSSTTTTAAAANNNNNNCCCEEEEE BLEEEEEVVVVIIIIINNNNNNNNSSSSSS!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Constance Blevins with a well-needed victory! Perhaps, this new approach is going to be beneficial for her and Heavenly Hell in the long run! For whichever tag team faces Heavenly Hell next, they gotta be concerned about the champions! They aren’t going to let anything stop them from dominating the division.
Deadprez: Constance has Jenny Cien to thank! We obviously knew that Jenny was going to be a factor in this match! Jenny managed to strike Kensingten Calhoun-Astor with that baseball bat of her against the skull! Jenny evened the odds and made sure that Kensingten wasn’t going to get away with that.
(Kensingten Calhoun-Astor rolls underneath the bottom rope and rests on the apron Jenny Cien slings the baseball back before walking backwards up the ramp. Jenny has a sinister and satisfied grin on her face. It must feel pretty good to get the upper hand. Kensingten is looking back at Jenny with a steamed look on her face.)
(The scene fades into Heavenly Hell — Constance Blevins and Minerva are backstage in the women’s locker room. The crowd pops for the Unified Tag Team Champions. Constance is sitting on the chair as she tries to catch her breath. Minerva walks over and extends her partner a water bottle before Constance drinks out of it. Minerva gets a steel chair, sits backward on it as she looks towards Constance with a fascinating look on her face. Constance notices Minerva staring at her with mystic before putting down her water bottle.)
Minerva: How does it feel, Constance?
Constance Blevins: How does what feel?
Minerva: How does it feel to be in touch with your dark side?
Constance Blevins: I don’t know what to feel, Minerva. There one side of me that feels afraid. I’m so scared of the unknown and what I could be possibly getting myself into and if there is going to be a way out. I always had “him” looking out for me. He normally shined a light in my world and guided me whenever I needed direction. When things seemed unclear, I was never afraid. I knew that he had my back. Now —
Minerva: — Now, you have me having your back. You also have yourself to rely on with no restraints at all. Perhaps, you will see the dark the way I see it, Constance. I see it as peaceful. It has brought me sweet serenity at times, and I hope that it does the same to you one day.
Constance Blevins: There’s the other side of me, Minnie. For one of the first times in a long time, I felt like I was in control out there. I felt like I could do whatever I wanted out there. These metaphorical chains no longer shackle me, and I felt like I was the woman I was supposed to be. Nothing is holding me back.
Minerva: Mentally, nothing is holding you or me back, Constance. Figuratively, we are being held back by those that don’t like the idea that we’re not like that other woman, who have captured the hearts of the fans and management. We’re not going on camera and calling ourselves angels. I am not an angel, Constance. I refuse to go on camera and to pander and try to win approval. You and I could put the effort to try to make everyone like us, but we lose a sense of ourselves. I’ve accepted that I’ll never be like the barbies and divas of this company. I’m content with being myself, and despite me being different, I always find a way to come out on top. You have a kind heart, Constance. That is what has held you back for ages. There are always going to be people that take advantage of your pure heart. Not any longer, you will not let people hold you back. I won’t allow them. I won’t allow you to become another piece in someone else’s story. I won’t enable you to become like all of those other women.
Constance Blevins: I don’t plan on being like those other women. I see the treatment we get in the back, Minerva. You said it yourself — we’re the Unified Tag Team Champions, yet people want to discredit all of that. People don’t want to take us seriously. There’s a reason that we haven’t been getting as much attention as possible, Minerva. It’s because management doesn’t see us as valuable. They don’t see Heavenly Hell for the force that could dominate this entire company if we wanted too. We’ve already dominated this Tag Team Division. Haven’t you noticed that no one had called us out and Territorial Invasion is in a few weeks?
Minerva: It seems like they’re scared.
Constance Blevins: Or they don’t see us as worthy.
Minerva: That’s their mistake.
Constance Blevins: I’m tired of sitting on my hands, hoping that we get some opportunity. The next time a team crosses our path is going to be another example of why no one should think of Heavenly Hell as unworthy.
Minerva: I like the sound of that.
(Constance Blevins and Minerva smirk in agreement as to the scene transitions to ringside.)
(The scene cuts to Gina, who is standing in the middle of the ring with a huge smile on her face.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen… please welcome my guest at this time… THE NEW BREED CHAMPION… FELIX HARTLEY!!!
(“Chun Li” by Nicki Minaj begins to blast across the PA system and the crowd greets Felix with a mixed reaction as she steps on stage. Felix looks amazing in a fitted, black and gold Alexander McQueen minidress, black Louboutin pumps with gold spikes on them, and the New Breed Championship across her shoulder. Her purple locks are pulled back in a loose, fishtail style braid with a few loose tendrils hanging down and framing her face. She runs her tongue across her bright red lips and begins to make her way to the ring.)
(The crowd continues reacting to Felix as she saunters up the ring steps, poses sexily against the ropes, and climbs into the ring. She takes the microphone from Gina and shoos her out of the ring, and steps into the center as her music begins to fade out.)
Crowd: NEW. BREED. STALLION. *clap, clap, clap* NEW. BREED. STALLION. *clap, clap, clap* NEW. BREED. STALLION.
Felix Hartley: :oh:
Crowd: NEW. BREED. STALLION. *clap, clap, clap* NEW. BREED. STALLION. *clap, clap, clap* NEW. BREED. STALLION.
Felix Hartley: Are those… cheers?
(The crowd erupts with a mostly positive reaction and Felix smirks.)
Felix Hartley: I’ve never really given a damn what people think about me, but I appreciate the fact people are finally opening their beady little eyes and realizing that the real deal is standing in front of them. I might not give a shit about wrestling, but you can’t fucking deny that I’m the greatest to ever lace up a pair of boots. There is no one as polarizing as me, and no one who can capture any and all audiences in the palm of her hand like I do. This New Breed Championship is a belt no one really gave me a chance to win. I was slut shamed and dragged to hell by SOSA Henderson leading up to Pain for Pride, but never once did I falter and let his words or actions get to me. I walked to that ring back at Pain for Pride with one goal in mind and that was to win this championship on my shoulder by any means necessary.
Felix Hartley: Once I accomplished that goal, I set another one, and that goal was to defend this championship by… any means necessary, obvi. We’re not going to act like the whole world didn’t think Pain for Pride was a fluke for me, especially when I failed to get my hand raised the following week at the Clash of Champions match during the Draft Show. But my performances at Midsummer Massacre and Bloodsport should have shut the haters up. Amber Keys tried me leading up to Midsummer Massacre, stripping me down and exposing me, and thinking that was actually going to embarrass Felix Hartley. I know where I come from and I know who I am, and we haven’t seen that cunt since I left her topless inside the ring at the conclusion of our Barbed Wire Bra and Panties match. Cepheus St. Claire thought he could declare a gender war on me, and make our Thumbtacks and Glass match into some man versus woman exhibition match that was going to show everyone why men were better than women.
(Felix rolls her eyes to the back of her head.)
Felix Hartley: I shut that shit right down, making that asshole swallow dozens of thumbtacks and rendering him speechless. He will never forget the hell I unleashed on him, and the rest of the free world would be doing themselves a favor if they didn’t forget either. I dished out two brutal beatings during my first two championship defense AND I have still never lost a match by being pinned… yet, after everything I’ve done, you still want to write me off as nothing? ExPeRtS still want to say that I have done nothing to prove myself and that I’m a flash in the pan that’s going to end up flaming out. Couldn’t be me because I’m here to keep on winning and to keep on defending this New Breed Championship.
Felix Hartley: I’ve had a couple of weeks off to let my body heal and refocus my mind, and I know that we have a tri-brand Free-Per-View coming up. Territorial Invasion is one of the biggest events of the year and I know that MY championship is going to be one of the biggest prizes on the line that weekend. Voltage has already declared war on me, sending me another one of their mediocre Elitists to slaughter. Kai Zolomon poses absolutely no threat to me and honestly I was hoping to finally be challenged. How the hell am I supposed to look across the ring at Kai Zolomon and even try to take him seriously knowing he’s the same man who couldn’t get the job done against Cepheus?? If that’s the best Voltage has to offer, and I’m going to assume that Dynasty won’t have anything better to offer me, then you can bet on the New Breed Stallion leaving Auburn, Alabama STILL the EAW Breed Ch-
(Before Felix can finish hyping herself, “Applause” by Lady Gaga begins to blast across the PA system.)
Gavin Kirkland: Now hang on a minute… I know that this Dynasty reject isn’t actually walking out here and disrupting the future Mrs. Gavin Kirkland.
Deadprez: Last week on Voltage, Captain Charisma told Kai Zolomon that at Territorial Invasion, the New Breed Championship would be up for grabs amongst all three brands! Perhaps this man is Dynasty’s representative in the match!
(Felix does not look impressed as Archimedes J. Manson from Dynasty strolls onto the stage. He has a large grin on his face and is carrying a microphone as his music fades.)
Archimedes J. Manson: :whew: The New Breed Stallion. It’s me. Archimedes J. Manson. Y’know, The Animaniac. The Eliminator of Six. The Operator of Doomsday. And whatever other cool nicknames that I can’t think of right now but I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of me. Especially after I kicked off Operation Doomsday with an incredible showing in that Elimination Battle Royale Match of Doom at the start of the show. Coincidentally, that match is why I find myself out here on Showdown tonight, and funny how you were just mentioning Territorial Invasion and your match against Kai Zolomon.
Archimedes J. Manson: I don’t like to brag or boast because that’s how you end up toast. When you start thinking about how you’ve totally kicked so much ass that you start to believe that you’re something special? That’s when you get into trouble and you, New Breed Stallion, could very well be in trouble come Territorial Invasion. While I know I’m not anything special, unless you count the dozens of screws I have loose, I know that I’m just another dude looking to kick the ass of another dude or dudette inside that ring. Well come TI, I’m getting just that because by winning that Elimination Battle Royal back at Operation: Doomsday, I won myself a chance to compete for that New Breed Championship!
(The crowd pops for this, loving the idea of this triple threat challenge for the New Breed Championship. While talking, Archimedes has made his way to the ring and is now standing directly in front of it, looking up at Felix who looks amused.)
Archimedes J. Manson: I’m stoked and I’m liking my chances to bring home that championship. You see, I understand exactly who and what I am. I know where I stand. I know where I belong. I’m not even supposed to be in EAW but here I am, and bet I’ll make the most of this opportunity and defeat you AND Zolomon inside that ring at Territorial Invasion. I see you up there, rolling your eyes, and not taking any of this seriously, but trust me, doll. I’m immune. I’m immune to ridicule. I ridicule myself every day. I know I’m stupid. I know I’m ridiculous. I know that most of the people that encounter me don’t understand half the things that come out of my mouth. Hell, I don’t even know what’s going to come out of my mouth. It drives me up a wall so I know it probably makes everyone else want to take a brick to my skull. And I encourage it. I deserve it.
(A sinister little grin spreads across Archimedes’ face.)
Archimedes J. Manson: And at TI, I invite you and Zolomon to be the people who try and do that to me. Last season, I was a mess. I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong. I was trying to become something instead of just being who I am and I fully believe that I am the next EAW New Breed Champion!
Felix Hartley: I’m sorry but the homeless man I saw sleeping behind the arena when I arrived today has more of a chance at winning the New Breed Championship than you do, Archiwhatever. You’re name’s irrelevant because it’s a name that will NEVER get written across a championship nameplate, and certainly not at my expense. I’m the hottest champion here in EAW. I’m unbeatable.
Archimedes J. Manson: You definitely the hottest champion, alright. In fact, you damn right on fiyah!
Gavin Kirkland: Archimedes just dropped the microphone and reached under the ring…
Deadprez: HE HAS A FIRE EXTINGUISHER! ARCHIMEDES J. MANSON JUST HIT THE RING AND HE SPRAYS THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER IN FELIX’S FACE! FELIX IS BLINDED BY THAT NITROGEN AND GOES DOWN, ROLLING RIGHT OUT OF THE RING! ARCHIMEDES J. MANSON PICKS UP THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP AND RAISES IT IN THE AIR!!!!
(All of a sudden, the crowd erupts, getting even louder.)
Gavin Kirkland: KAI ZOLOMON HITS THE RING AND GRABS ARCHIMEDES FROM BEHIND!!!! KAI HAS ARCHIMEDES LOCKED IN BLOODBEND AND HE IS LOOKING TO PUT ARCHIMEDES OUT WITH THAT DRAGON SLEEPER! ARCHIMEDES IS TRYING TO FIGHT HIS WAY OUT OF IT BUT KAI TRANSITIONS THE DRAGON SLEEPER INTO A ROLLING CUTTER AND HE PLANTS ARCHIMEDES RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! ARCHIMEDES IS DOWN!
Deadprez: :damn: Kai Zolomon has the New Breed Championship now and he’s looking at it! On the outside the ring, Felix has recovered and she is flashing Kai a look of anger! Kai Zolomon smirks down at Felix and he tosses the championship down to her. Kai motioning around his waist now, signaling that the New Breed Championship is going to be his come Territorial Invasion, and damn. Maybe it will! I wasn’t expecting this at all tonight!
(The camera catches a close up of Felix and Kai staring daggers at one another, while Archimedes withers around on the mat. Showdown fades to commercial break.)
(Camera opens to find Gina Romano in the ring with a microphone as “Hey Man Nice Shot” by Filter hits and Viktor Stone walks out onto the stage with a cocky grin on his face as he looks out to the crowd giving a mixed reaction.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for—
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!
(Viktor begins to make his way down to the ring with a confident strut.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first, making his way to the ring from Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 225 pounds… VVVIIIIKKTTTTOORRR SSSSSTTTTOOOONNNEEEEE!!!
Deadprez: Viktor Stone has been putting in work ever since coming to EAW. He came up short in the Olive Garden Classic but he’s confident that it won’t slow down his climb.
Gavin Kirkland: Ah, the Olive Garden Classic. The most prestigious of all contests in EAW. What a tremendous occasion that was! Speaking of tremendous occasions…
(The Camera cuts to the commentary desk where Mark Michaels is seen there with the PURE Championship over his shoulder.)
Mark Michaels: That’s right. You are in the presence of the PURE Champion. But don’t expect to hear much. I tend to focus on scouting when I’m out here.
Deadprez: …I’m sure we’ll find a way to survive.
(Stone slides into the ring under the bottom rope and pounds his chest as he stands up into the turnbuckles to pose. He hops down as his music fades and is replaced by “Castle” by Halsey as Harlow Reichert begins to make her way out onto the stage.)
Mark Michaels: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! This woman is fucking terrible! Why is she even allowed here? She is a disgrace to my Championship by being classed as a contender!
Deadprez: The fuck happened to “scouting”?
(Harlow begins to make her way down to the ring, a high air of confidence surrounds her as she walks.)
Gina Romano: And his opponent, making her way to the ring from Christchurch, New Zealand, weighing in at 155 pounds… HARRRRRRLLLLLOOOOWWWWWW RRRRREEEEIIIICCCHHHHEEERRRTTTT!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: And speaking of the magnificent Olive Garden Classic, here’s the inaugural winner!
Mark Michaels: She’s so fucking ugly too.
Gavin Kirkland: HOW DARE YOU!
(Gavin tries to dive across the desk but Deadprez grabs him and yanks him back into his seat.)
Deadprez: I was the AWF Champion and now I’m babysitting this motherfucker.
(Harlow climbs up and into the ring, posing in the ropes before turning to face Viktor. The referee checks them both and calls for the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: AND HERE WE GO! Harlow and Viktor both look set! Viktor begins to make his way over, but Harlow remains back, her hands on the ropes but still at the ready. Showing the growth she’s had as a competitor by analyzing the situation while maintaining her ring presence! BUT VIKTOR TRIES TO BULL RUSH HER IN THE CORNER! HARLOW SCOUTS IT THOUGH AND STEPS OUT OF THE CORNER JUST IN TIME! VIKTOR COLLIDES WITH THE TURNBUCKLES AND HARLOW GRABS HIM BY THE WAIST AND PULLS HIM BACK INTO A SEATED ROLL UP! REFEREE HAS THE COUNT! COULD BE AN EARLY NIGHT FOR HARLOW!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWO—
Deadprez: BUT STONE MANAGES TO GET HIS SHOULDERS OFF THE MAT AND ROLL THROUGH! HE USES HIS LEGS FOR A TRIPPING SCISSOR SWEEP AND PULLS HARLOW INTO A REVERSE SHOULDER LOCK! Viktor prides himself on masterful technical ability, calling himself the Technical Messiah. That type of skill set could make him a future PURE competitor for you, champ.
Mark Michaels: Pffft. Takes more than that to make a champion. And that’s exactly what I’ll show Harlow at Territorial Invasion.
Gavin Kirkland: BUT HARLOW NOW MANAGES TO SLIDE THROUGH THE PRESSURE AND ESCAPE THE HOLD! Now she uses her knees to prop herself— AND LIFTING WITH HER LEGS TRANSITIONS QUICKLY OVER INTO A MOUNT POSITION ON VIKTOR! Harlow doesn’t lack in technical ability herself! And I do love seeing my breasted beauties from Empire succeed! Makes me a proud Gavin.
Mark Michaels: You are beyond all help.
Deadprez: HARLOW NOW TAKING THINGS TO THE NEXT LEVEL BY RAINING DOWN HAMMERFISTS ONTO STONE! STONE TRYING TO COVER UP BUT NOW HARLOW GRABS HIM BY THE WRIST AND YANKS HIS ARM UP! LOOKING TO APPLY A SEATED ARMBAR! SHE HAS IT BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! HARLOW NOW APPLYING PRESSURE TO THE SHOULDER! TRYING TO ROTATE VIKTOR OVER ONTO HIS BELLY! SHES GONNA GO FOR THE GREAT EXPECTATIONS! THAT BRIDGING FUJIWARA ARMBAR! STONE FEELS IT COMING AND DESPERATELY LOOKS FOR AN ESCAPE! HARLOW STILL TRYING TO WORK VIKTOR OVER ONTO HIS BELLY TO COMPLETE IT! BUT VIKTOR MANAGES TO SLIP OUT OF HER GRIP! HARLOW’S HOLD LOOSENED WHILE ROTATING JUST ENOUGH FOR STONE TO ESCAPE! THIS MATCH IS BARELY STARTED AND WE’RE ALREADY WITNESSING A CLASSIC IN GROUNDWORK TECHNIQUE!
Gavin Kirkland: VIKTOR NOT WASTING ANY TIME THOUGH! HE RUSHES IN AND DRIVES A KNEE RIGHT INTO HARLOW’S RIBS! Stone now wrapping his arm around Harlow’s bicep— ROLLS THROUGH INTO A CRUCIFIX PIN! HARLOW’S SHOULDERS ARE DOWN!
Ref: ONEEEEEEEEEE! TWO—
Mark Michaels: Pathetic.
Deadprez: Harlow powers out! Mark, this match is the definition of what the PURE title represents! You have to appreciate this at least a little.
Mark Michaels: :skip:
Deadprez: Both competitors are displaying their technical skills here but you have to think that the longer the match goes, it has to favor Viktor Stone more. When you’re too exhausted for sheer skill, strength and size play a major factor. Viktor looks to remain on the offensive in this matchup! Drops down on top of Harlow again! Both of them jostling for position… BUT VIKTOR MANAGES TO SLIP BEHIND! AND HE SLIDES HIS ARM UNDERNEATH REICHERT’S CHIN! NIGHT NIGHT ‘95! THE ARM TRIANGLE CHOKE IS APPLIED! HARLOW COULD BE IN TROUBLE! HER FACE IS ALREADY TURNING AS RED AS HER HAIR! SHE NEEDS TO FIND HER WAY OUT OF THIS HOLD! BUT SHE HAS TO CRAWL WITH STONE ON HER BACK! HARLOW SHOWING EVERYTHING SHE HAS JUST TO GET TO HER HANDS AND KNEES WITH ALL 225 POUNDS OF VIKTOR STONE ON TOP OF HER!
Gavin Kirkland; COME ON BOOBS #15 AND #16! YOU CAN DO IT!
Deadprez: Harlow dogging deep! Dragging herself towards the ropes to try and break the hold but she’s fading! Harlow is running out of time! That choke cuts off the blood flow to the carotid artery which deprives the brain! She’s going to lose consciousness! Harlow crawling, clawing her way towards those ropes with everything she has! She keeps reaching out but the light is fading from her eyes! If she doesn’t reach the ropes this will be a massive win for Viktor Stone! Harlow is reaching! Stretching for that rope! She’s just inches away! But you can see her fading! Her eyes are rolling back in her head! She reaches out again! BUT HER HAND JUST FELL!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT HER HAND FELL ONTO THE BOTTOM ROPE! HARLOW MAY HAVE PASSED OUT THERE BUT THE FINAL REACH MANAGED TO GET HER TO THE ROPE AND BREAK THE HOLD! Her fingers are still just barely hung onto the rope and the referee is going to check on her… this match may still be ended via a submission right now…
Deadprez: BUT HARLOW OPENED HER EYES! SHE ROLLS HERSELF UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE BUT TELLS THE REFEREE THAT SHE CAN FIGHT ON! Honestly we may have just seen Harlow choked out but she made the ropes and woke up before the referee could assess her! She may have just had a very fortunate break but you have to wonder what her condition is going into the rest of the matchup. Viktor Stone doesn’t look very happy with how that just went down, he thought he had that matchup won! He rushes over and pushes the referee aside! Viktor reaches over the top rope and grabs Harlow by the back of the neck! He pulls her up, Harlow is up to her feet! Viktor swings a punch— BUT HARLOW BLOCKS IT! SHE GRABS HIS ARM AND DROPS OFF THE APRON! OH MY GOD! DID YOU SEE HOW STONE’S ELBOW AND SHOULDER BOTH JUST MOVED?!? THE ELBOW COMPLETELY HYPEREXTENDED AND I THOUGHT HIS SHOULDER CAME OUT OF SOCKET FOR A MOMENT! HE HAS TO BE IN MASSIVE PAIN!
Mark Michaels: What kind of idiot puts himself in that situation for that to even happen?
Gavin Kirkland: Viktor Stone may need more medical attention than a burst breast implant after this matchup!
Deadprez: :dahell: Why do I got you instead of Eve? Whatever. Stone is hurting and Harlow is looking to make the most of it! She slides back into the ring and immediately targets that arm! She grabs him by the wrist, twists through… THRUST KICK RIGHT TO THE INJURED ARM! Harlow won’t relent either! She rushes in and begins to deliver forearms right to that shoulder joint! Stone is in trouble here! Harlow twists through on that arm again— BUT STONE SLIPS OUT! Viktor yanks his arm away from Harlow and stumbles back into the ropes! He’s guarding that arm but Reichert still won’t let up! She moves in—
Gavin Kirkland: BUT VIKTOR USES HIS GOOD SHOULDER AND POPS HARLOW UP AND OVER THE ROPE TO THE APRON! BUT HARLOW LANDED ON HER FEET! VIKTOR HASN’T SEEN SINCE HE STUMBLED AWAY FROM THE ROPES! VIKTOR TURNS AROUND! HARLOW HOPS UP! SPRINGBOARD CLOTHESLINE!
Deadprez: NO! VIKTOR SLID OVER AND CAUGHT HER! HE HAS A FRONT WAISTLOCK! THE SUPLEX SPECIALISTS WITH THE OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! HARLOW GOES CRASHING BUT VIKTOR IS ON HIS KNEES AND HOLDING THAT ARM! THAT SUPLEX USED A LOT OF HIS REMAINING STRENGTH IN THAT LIMB!
Gavin Kirkland: Viktor trying to find some life in his arm! Harlow is staggering as she gets to her feet and Stone realizes this may be his only chance! He moves in behind Harlow! HE HAS THE REAR WAISTLOCK! ROLL THE DICE! VIKTOR HEAVES HARLOW UP FOR THE ROLLING GERMAN SUPLEX!
Deadprez: NO! THAT ARM GAVE OUT! STONE IS ON THE MAT AND CLUTCHING THAT INJURED ARM! Harlow didn’t get hit with Roll the Dice but she still got dropped back pretty hard! She may have hit her head! She’s slow to get up but Stone is bashing his good fist into the mat! He knows that was a major chance he just missed out on! Harlow is trying to get to her feet and is using the ropes to do so! She reaches over and leans herself against the turnbuckles to keep her footing as she clutches her head! But Viktor now pushing himself up to his feet and immediately takes off! STONE LOOKING TO HIT SOMETHING BIG! RUNNING RIGHT FOR HARLOW WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT HARLOW GETS OUT OF THE WAY AGAIN! STONE GOES THROUGH THE TURNBUCKLES AND HIS INJURED SHOULDER GOES RIGHT INTO THAT STEEL POST! HARLOW COMES IN FROM BEHIND AND YANKS HIM OUT OF THE CORNER! LOOK AT THIS POWER FROM HARLOW REICHERT! SCOOPS UNDERNEATH STONE AND PLANTS HIM WITH A BACK BODY DROP RIGHT ONTO THAT HURT SHOULDER! STONE TRIES TO ROLL AWAY BUT HARLOW SEES THE BRIGHT RED TARGET ON HIM! SHE SCRAMBLES OVER! SHE GRABS HIS BAD ARM! GREAT EXPECTATIONS! THE BRIDGING FUJIWARA ARMBAR! HARLOW HAS IS APPLIED AND LOCKED IN TIGHT THIS TIME! ALL THAT DAMAGE DONE TO VIKTOR’S ELBOW AMD SHOULDER AND SHE’S EXTENDING BOTH JOINTS! STONE SCREAMING IN PAIN NOW AS HARLOW CRANKS BACK ON THE ARM! HE MAY NOT HAVE ANY CHOICE HERE! HES STUCK IN THE DEAD CENTER OF THE RING! HARLOW HAS THE SUBMISSION ON TIGHT! VIKTOR RAISES A HAND! THIS MAY BE IT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: VIKTOR STONE TAPPED OUT! HE HAD TO IN ORDER TO AVOID MORE DAMAGE TO THAT ARM! BUT WHAT A TECHNICAL SHOWING FROM BOTH OF THESE COMPETITORS HERE!
(Harlow stands to her feet as “Castle” picks back up and her hand is raised by the referee. Viktor rolls over towards the corner where medical begins to evaluate him and help him out of the ring.)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… HARLOW REICHERT!
Gavin Kirkland: A big win as she displayed major mat wrestling prowess and— what’s this? MARK GOING AFTER HARLOW!
(Mark Michaels slides into the ring and tosses the championship to the side as he goes and attacks Harlow from behind with a forearm to the back of the head.)
Deadprez: Mark looking to send a message now as he takes out and exhausted Harlow! He grabs her by the hair and—HARLOW FIRING BACK! SHE STARTS LANDING BODY SHOTS! SHE WON’T JUST LET MARK HAVE HIS WAY HERE! HARLOW SWING FOR THE FENCES AGAINST THE FRESH MAN!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT MARK CONNECTS WITH SHOTS TO HER JAW! HE GRABS HER BY THE HEAD AND DRAGS HER OVER! DDT! MARK JUST DDT’ED HARLOW RIGHT INTO THE PURE CHAMPIONSHIP BELT! NOW HE’S KNEELING NEXT TO HER AND LIFTS HER HEAD UP BY THE HAIR!
Mark Michaels (off-mic): This… this is as close as you’ll get to my championship.
(Mark drops her head down onto the centerplate of the belt.)
Mark Michaels (off-mix): Enjoy it.
Deadprez: MARK MICHALES WITH THE DOWNFALL CURBSTOMP! DRIVING HARLOW FACE FIRST INTO THE CENTERPLATE OF THE PURE CHAMPIONSHIP! THIS IS JUST UNNECESSARY!
(Mark grabs his title, now with streaks of Harlow’s blood on it, and makes his way up the ramp. He pauses halfway up, looking back and grinning at his handiwork as the camera fades.)
(Commercial for milk bags. Now in specially large bags so you have milk supplies for the entire family! Just ask for the Xander sized bag!)
(The scene fades into Jenny Punk looking over a clipboard with a producer. The crowd cheers due to the presence of the Showdown General Manager. It’s unknown what she is looking at, but it seems quite vital as she continues to talk to the producer about it. Jenny is seen nodding her head to thinks that she likes before looking at the producer over things that she is not too crazy about on the clipboard. After a while, she hears a knock on the door.)
Jenny Punk: (talks to herself) I wasn’t expecting anyone. (to whoever is at the front door) Come in!
(The door opens as Ryan Wilson walks into the camera shot. The crowd in the area boos due to Ryan’s presence. Ryan had just competed with a match against The Visual Prophet earlier tonight. He doesn’t seem too crazy about the result of the Match, so it should be evident that Ryan would be going to her. Jenny seems confused over why Ryan is in her office, but she is more than willing to hear what he needs to say.)
Jenny Punk: Is there anything that I can help you with, or did you stop to say hi?
Ryan Wilson: Yes. Jenny; there’s something that you can help me with; I went out there tonight and pushed The Visual Prophet to his limit. That’s not going to be something that the Chairman would be able to say at Territorial Invasion. If the Match would have went on a bit longer, there’s no doubt that the Match would have gone my way. Me tapping out means nothing. At that moment, it was either submit or shatter my ankle and miss out Territorial Invasion. I performed and brought the best out of Viz, but what’s next for me? That’s the one thing that I always wonder once I finish taking a top-caliber talent to their limit. What is next for Ryan Wilson? Showdown is my show after all, but I have no idea where things are going. That right there is the reason why I am here, Jenny. What’s next for me?
Jenny Punk: As annoying as people on this brand find you, Ryan; your efforts this week are acknowledged. There’s no doubt that when given an opportunity, you go all out. You may have fallen short of those goals, but people should recognize you for your efforts. Those losses should have lit a fire underneath you. It should make you want to compete and get a lot better. People like Viz can bring the best out of you. I can sense your frustration, Ryan; you are sick of going into these opportunities and losing. You want to know that you’re receiving what you are putting into each Match.
Ryan Wilson: (sarcasm) Wow, you’re proving that you’re smarter than Ryan Adams right there. That’s not complicated to do.
Jenny Punk: Don’t push it.
Ryan Wilson: You are right, though. I want to know that everything I’m doing isn’t going to waste. Showdown has most of its matches booked — Viz faces DEDEDE, Felix is facing Archimedes and Kai, Mark has his issues with Harlow. Jamie O’Hara probably has people for War Games already. I’m quite complicated at the moment, Jenny; I’m taking a break from my aspirations of going for the PURE Championship. People did have a bit of a point when they stated that I was getting a bit too obsessed with the title. If there ever came the moment, where I got another title shot, I’m not going to deny it. Mark Michaels can bet his ass that I’m not going to make the same mistake twice. Jenny, Territorial Invasion has been a sensitive topic for me. I was so close to winning the Hardcore Championship from Johnny Ventura last year. I should have won the Hardcore Championship, and that still eats me up a bit. I would love nothing more than to have an opportunity to redeem myself for what occurred last year.
Jenny Punk: I would love nothing more than to give you a match. However, we earn things on Showdown. I let that shit slide with Cameron and issuing out a challenge against Kassidy Heart. There’s no way that I am going to meddle myself into Mr. DEDEDE and his business with The Visual Prophet. I’m not going to hand out opportunities for everyone, but I can give you a chance to show how serious you are about redeeming yourself, Ryan. Do you know what’s a Divide and Conquer Match?
Ryan Wilson: Yeah, two teams, the first team to eliminate people from the other side, compete against each other until there is a winner.
Jenny Punk: Good. I’ve been talking with Starr Stan and Matt Daniels, and it seems like we’re going to bring the concept back at Territorial Invasion. We’re still edging out the details, but I’m going to allow you to qualify for the match next week.
(Ryan Wilson’s interest peaks.)
Ryan Wilson: Okay, you have my interest. At least, I find myself booked next week. I’ll take on and beat whoever I need to qualify for this match. Don’t worry; I’ll make Showdown proud. With the champions on these brands, it won’t be challenging to do so.
(With that, Ryan Wilson leaves the camera shot as Jenny Punk sighs. In a way, that conversation took a toll out of her, but at least, she doesn’t need to worry about Ryan for the rest of the night.)
( “ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli hits, and the capacity Frank Erwin Center audience jumps to their feet in applause as Cameron Ella Ava walks out prepared for action )
Deadprez: HERE COMES THE GODDESS!
Gavin Kirkland: AND HERE CUMS GAVIN!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!!! Making her way to the ring, from Los Angeles, California, CAAAMMERROOONNN ELLAAAAAAAAA AAVVVAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Deadprez: Austin is giving it up to the EAW Hall of Famer, who just a number of weeks ago made it clear that she’s hungry for some World Championship gold.
Gavin Kirkland: And I’m hungry too :drool: luckily I have a zesty, thick, juicy piece of latin ass headed my way! Lord God in heaven I am feasting my eyes! This queen will be the reason why I switch over to the dark side and convert my love of blondes into brunettes, look at those eyes. So smoky. So seductive. Most men wouldn’t last even a minute with her! In bed or in the ring!
Deadprez: If anybody knows that latter part better than anyone it’s Cameron, she still fully believes in herself as World Championship material. I can’t blame her, it’s not at all like she’s stagnated, she continues to evolve as one of EAW’s household names and manages to keep up with the times despite the odds.
( “Confident” by Demi Lovato (Nightcore version) plays and Io Ishimori makes her entrance holding her plush cat, Yoshi San in one of her arms )
Gina Romano: Her opponent, accompanied by “Yoshi San”, from Osaka, Japan, IIIIOOOOOOOOOOOO IIISHHHIIIMMOOORRRIIIIIIII!!!
Deadprez: As confident as Cameron Ella Ava is, she can’t expect an easy one tonight.
Gavin Kirkland: This weird k-pop meets goth chick looks a bit off today. Dare I say she looks, focused? Oh wait a minute she’s Asian they’re always focused.
Gavin Kirkland: WHAT?! THAT’S A COMPLIMENT! They have the highest test scores and stuff because they’re always focused!
Deadprez: Just stop while you ahead fam. I will admit, Io looks like she’s on her shit tonight. It’s to be expected when you’re up against a Hall of Famer in a singles exhibition match. Ishimori wants to bounce back from Midsummer Massacre and earn herself some opportunities of her own after being unsuccessful in the Unique Opportunities match, and there wouldn’t be a better way to get some wind in your sails than to prove yourself against one of the greatest of all time in Cameron Ella Ava.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Deadprez: Io and Cameron size each other up, extending the arms and eventually engaging in a collar & elbow tie up to start this thing. Cam’s got muscle, height and power over her, she’s definitely winning this battle when it comes to pure raw strength. Io already being pushed backwards into the ropes, and she uses a boot to stop herself with the support of the middle rope, and lunge herself forward. The two re-engage this time in a Greco Roman style knuckle lock exchange, locking fingers with each other and really going at it. Io being bent backwards by the – again – stronger, taller and more powerful Cameron Ella Ava. But Io brings Cam to the floor with a drop toe hold! Fujiwara armbar right after that!
Gavin Kirkland: Cam isn’t just gonna let Io get that armbar off without a fight, Cameron bolts up to a knee already, prompting Io to pound her left palm into the tricep of Ava and force her back to a lower base. Cam slips out of that armbar from behind and hits an ATOMIC DROP from behind! Io drops right on her backside, and Cam runs down Io’s back, rebounds off the ropes in front of her, and slams a knee right into the chest of Ishimori as she’s seated! Lateral press.
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO-
Deadprez: Shoulder up by Io, and Cam wastes no time picking Io up from the floor, and scoops her onto her back for the Argentine Backbreaker submission! Cameron displaying off her deceptive strength –
Gavin Kirkland: That’s a powerful woman isn’t she? This week on EAW.com they uploaded footage from Cameron Ella Ava’s workout regiments, and I got to tell you seeing this luscious brunette beauty hot and sweaty and pumping iron rods worked my dick into a spluttering shoot!
Deadprez: Cam using raw power to her advantage, giving Ishimori a difficult time on her shoulders. Cam goes running forward, she might want to end this and deliver BREAKING BARRIERS! Io escapes Ava’s shoulders from the last second, landing behind her and stacks Ava onto her shoulders with the Japanese leg roll clutch!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO-
Deadprez: Cameron with a kick out as soon as she can. Io kips up to her feet! Cam a bit slower to the draw, comes right after Io looking for a RUNNING FOREARM! BICYCLE KNEE COUNTER TO THE ARM FROM IO! NOW A SPINNING BACKHAND! AM DUCKS THAT! COCKS BACK AND SWINGS WITH A WILD LARIAT! ARM TRAPPED BY IO, INTO THE HIP TOSS! FOLLOWED BY THE HANDSPRING BASEMENT DROPKICK! IO FIRING HERSELF UP, AND SHE SPRINTS OFF THE ROPES FAR ACROSS THE RING, COMES CHARGING BACK, AND HITS A BRUTAL SLIDING LOW EUROPEAN UPPERCUT TO THE RIBS, SENDING CAMERON ROLLING OUT OF THE RING! Cameron Ella Ava is at ringside holding her sides, recovering as quickly as she can, and Io continues her run, sprinting up to the top turnbuckle! Watch out! Watch out! HIGH FLYYYY FLOOOOW!!!! DOWN TO THE OUTSIDE, TAKING THE EAW HALL OF FAMER OUT!
Gavin Kirkland: These joshi chicks are like a bundle of energy Deadprez, if you don’t contain them early they’ll never, ever stop! Ishimori pulls Cameron up from the ringside floor as the referee begins his count, and she slams Ava’s made for semen face into the hard part of the ring apron, before rolling her body in and leaving the top half of her torso sticking out of the ring. The referee’s count now up to “three” and Io hops up to the apron, backs away… and delivers a RUNNING LEG DROP TO THE STERNUM OF AVA, AS SHE’S HUNG UP TO DRY ON THE APRON! Ava rolls in the ring clutching her chest, and Ishimori stalks the Hall of Fame Goddess from behind at each step of her recovery, only to take Cam BACK DOWN WITH A CHOP BLOCK TO THE RIGHT LEG FROM BEHIND!! AND SHE FOLLOWS UP A POTENTIALLY TENDON TEARING ATTACK, WITH A STOMP TO THE BENT OVER ARM OF AVA’S AS SHE’S DOWN TO ALL FOURS ON THE CANVAS! Cam rolling around the right arm, and Ishimori drags Cammy by the right leg –
Deadprez: Ava trying to fight Io away with kicks from the left leg! A few boots hit Io hard, forcing her to back away, and Ava crawls away in order to create some distance before returning to her feet, only to be sent into the ropes with a dropkick from behind! Cam slumped over the middle rope now, and Io comes right after her with a TIGER FEINT KICK!!! BUT CAM CATCHES BOTH OF IO’S LEGS IN BOTH OF HER ARMS, AND SENDS IO’S BODY TWIRLING THROUGH THE ROPES AGAIN! Io ends up seated on the apron! Nice evasion by The Goddess! Io quickly pulls herself up to her feet, and CAM SPRINGBOARDS OFF OF THE PERPENDICULAR ROPES NEAR BY, BLASTING IO WITH A SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!! CLEAN SHOT ACROSS THE SKULL!!!! IO DROPS DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE FLOOR, BARELY KNOWING WHAT HIT HER!
Gavin Kirkland: Go after her Cam! Grab her! She’s out! Get her back in the ring and pin her before she recovers!
Deadprez: Cameron Ella Ava is on the mat loosening up the cobwebs in her right leg, while Io’s just trying to find her good senses. The referee counting Ishimori down while she just tries to figure out where the hell she is.
Gavin Krikland: Wait don’t grab her! Let her take the count out! She’s finished, she can’t possibly break the count!
Deadprez: I don’t think you’ll be receiving too many applications to have you as a ringside manager, Gavin :mjpls: Anywho, Ava’s out at ringside, and she drags Io up from the floor and quickly tosses her back in. Ava follows her, pulling her up from the mat while she’s still dazed and hooking her firm and good, PLANTING her with a bridging fishermans suplex!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWWW-
Gavin Kirkland: Shoulder up from Ishimori! Ava turns Io around so that she’s laying on her front, and she holds up the left leg of Io’s, delivering multiple stomps across the hamstring! Io dragging herself closer to the ropes, and Cameron muscles Io away from the ropes before hooking up that leg and LOOKING FOR AN STO!!!! AVA LOCK COULD BE ON ITS WAY!!! BUT IO FIRES BACK SOME PUNCHES ACROSS THE FACE OF AVA, AND LANDS A BRUTAL ELBOW ACROSS THE EYE SOCKET! OUCH! That could have detached a damn retina! Cam sent rolling away, Io dragging herself up to her feet, and Cam comes charging after Io with a WONDER WOMAN PUNCH!!! MATRIX EVASION FROM IO, AND COUNTER FROM BEHIND WITH A LEGTRAP SUPLEX THROW!!! SENDING CAM CRASHING ONTO THE BACK OF HER HEAD, AND TURNING HER INSIDE OUT! Cameron Ella Ava already somehow dragging herself back up to her feet, and Io pulls down one of her knee pads, keeping a keen eye on Ava, DAYYYUM!!!! V-TRIGGER!!!! CLEANING CAMERON’S CLOCK!!! IO KEEPS IT MOVING, JOGGING INTO THE CORNER AND SPRINGING UP TO THE TOP ROPE IN ONE BOUND!!! MOONSAULT!!!!!! PERFECTLY EXECUTED, HOOK OF BOTH LEGS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-
Deadprez: CAM KICKS OUT! Io Ishimori bangs her fist on the canvas, and barks orders at the referee speaking all kinds of Mandarin or whatever Japanese folk speak. You can really feel shortys intensity, she knows she’s in the ring with a bonafide legend, one of the most recognizable athletes in the world for a good reason. Io’s back over to Cam, and she delivers a harsh stomp right into the wrist! Cam rolling over clutching the left wrist, and another rough stomp into the gut! Io pulls Cam up by her hair, Cameron trying to mash her palm against Io’s face to break herself free, and the referee counting “1, 2, 3, 4,” only for Io to relent in exchange for a headbutt against the skull of Ava! Io rolls Ava over onto her back and has a hold of the right leg, and she torques the leg enough to press her own knees into it and yank it in an awkward position, drawing screams of pain from the EAW Hall of Famer! Io rearing back on the torqued up right leg, before pressing it against the mat and doing a FULL HANDSTAND! INTO THE KNEE DROP! SENDING SHARP PAIN UP AND DOWN CAM’S ENTIRE LEG!
Gavin Kirkland: LOOK AT THIS, IO’S NOT DONE, SHE MANIPULATES BOTH OF AVA’S LEGS, AND APPLIES A SIDE VERSION OF THE INDIAN DEATHLOCK!!! CAM AGAIN YELLING OUT IN PAIN, AND IO PRESSING THE SOLE OF HER BOOT INTO THOSE CONTORTED LEGS OF AVA’S, HOPING TO BRING THE GODDESS TO THE BRINK! BUT CAMERON REACHES OVER AND GRABS IO BY THE HAIR, AND LETS OFF A FLURRY OF FISTS! PUNCHES REPEATEDLY HAMMERING AWAY INTO IO’S SKULL! AND NOW IO FIRES BACK WITH EVEN MORE RAPIDFIRE PUNCHES THAN AVA CAN KEEP UP WITH LET ALONE DELIVER! FOLLOWING UP WITH A FLURRY OF ELBOWS! It may be academic from here after the damage that was already delivered to that leg!
Deadprez: Io stands herself up with Cameron’s legs still contorted in the Indian Deathlock formation. Ava reaching up with both arms, still very much writhing in pain, and IO TWISTS HER OWN BODY AND DROP TO THE MAT ON HER STOMACH, SENDING CAM ROLLING ONTO HER OWN STOMACH AS WELL! IO HAS TURNED THAT INTO AN INVERTED INDIAN DEATHLOCK!!! AVA RIPPING AT THE CANVAS WITH ALL SHE’S GOT, AND THESE TWO ARE PLAYING TUG OF WAR WITH THEIR OWN BODIES! CAM TUGGING ALONG FOR SURVIVAL, IO TUGGING ALONG FOR DOMINANCE! Cameron Ella Ava finds herself in dire straits! You can see her hands covering her head, she is having to cope big time with such a rarely used submission hold, that not many people in the game still employ! To Io’s credit it takes a whole lot of skill to know how to effectively work your way around an Indian Deathlock, and she has that rigged up to perfection! This might be a bit too much for even Cameron Ella Ava to manage!
Crowd: :clap:! clap:! clap:! clap:! clap:! clap:! clap:! clap:! clap:! clap:! clap:! clap:!
Gavin Kirkland: Austin willing Cameron Ella Ava on! The fans are putting some wind in her sails, which is enough for Ava to reach down inside of herself and make desperate drags over to the ropes as quickly as she possibly can! Just one more heave! COME ON CAMMY! DO IT FOR JAMIE! DO IT FOR YOUR SISTERS! AND MOST IMPORTANTLY DO IT FOR ME! YOU! CAN! DO! IT!!!!!
Deadprez: SHE GOT THE BOTTOM ROPE!
Gavin Kirkland: YES!!!
( Crowd cheers. )
Deadprez: BUT IO STILL HOLDING IN THE INDIAN DEATHLOCK! SHE COULD GIVE A DAMN WHETHER CAM GOT TO THE ROPES OR NOT, SHE REFUSES TO RELENT! AND NOW THE OFFICIAL HAS TO INTERVENE!
( Io Ishimori releases the Indian Deathlock and mutters to herself. She paces around the ring, while Cam is on the apron favoring her right knee. )
Deadprez: Io ain’t finished yet, she’s going right after Cameron and drags her back into the ring from the apron by the legs. Now she’s got both legs hooked and looks like she wants to turn Cam over for a BOSTON CRAB! But Ava is fighting for dear life to keep herself on her back and wrestle away the control that Io has over her from the ground. CAM USES HER LEGS TO REEL IO IN WITH THE SMALL PACKAGE!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Deadprez: Kick out from Io! A race to their feet from each competitor! BLACK LOTUS!!!!!!!!! DESTINO FROM IO ISHIMORI!!!
Gavin Kirkland: CAM CATCHES IO ONTO HER SHOULDER AS SHE FLIPS BACKWARDS WITH THE DESTINO! AND CAM COUNTERS WITH A POP-UP EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!! JESUS CHRIST DID YOU HEAR THAT SOUND?! IO LANDS ON SPAGHETTI LEGS! CAMERON ELLA AVA REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES!!! FULL POWER GODDESS’ TOUCH! ENZUIGIRI CRACKING ACROSS THE SKULL OF IO ISHIMORI!!! BUT CAM ROLLS AROUND HOLDING HER SORE RIGHT LEG AS WELL! THE GODDESS’ TOUCH TOOK SO MUCH OUT OF HER, HURRY CAM, HURRY YOUR ASS OVER THERE AND COVER HER BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
Deadprez: CAMERON ELLA AVA CLAWING OVER TO ISHIMORI AFTER A CRAZY, CRAZY ASS SAVE, AND SHE MANAGES TO GET A COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Gavin Kirkland: IO KICKS OUT!!!! I DON’T BELIEVE IT!!!
( Cameron Ella Ava sits up holding her head in shock. )
Deadprez: The damaged lower extremities provided Io enough time to desperately get a shoulder up! Cameron crawls over to the ropes, replaying the last few moments of the match over again in her mind, and she uses the ropes to recover while Ishimori crawls away looking to find whatever she has within herself to keep going. It’s been a real taxing contest physically and mentally for both of them, and Ava is going to have to dig deep into the reserves against an opponent I’m sure she wasn’t expecting to challenger her on such a level. Ava approaches Io from behind, attempting to bring her up with an Argentine Backbreaker again! Io DRILLS HER FINGERNAILS INTO CAM’S EYE SOCKETS! CUTTING THAT ONE OFF! SHOOT KICK TO THE RIGHT HAMSTRING BRINGS CAM DOWN TO A KNEE! Cam firing back with punches to the midsection, and Io trying to wrestle Cam to the floor! Both ladies engage in another knuckle lock, similar to the way they started off this match, but now it’s a much different story! Io Ishimori is the one completely overpowering Cameron Ella Ava! And she forces Cam onto her shoulders with the knuckle lock, mounting on top of her and prompting the ref to slide to the mat and check for both of Cam’s shoulders!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOONEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Cam shoots one of her shoulders off the canvas! Io turns Cam over onto her stomach, and from behind Io fires off with a flurry of strong style forearms battering the back of the head of our poor Goddess! She’s going ballistic with those shots in concession, and the ref has to physically manhandle Ishimori away from Ava after those nonstop strikes! Cameron Ella Ava looks woozy, she looks dazed, LOOK OUT!!!! FATAL ENDING!!!!!! ISHIMORI WITH THE FRONT FLIP CUTTER, PUTTING CAMERON DOWN!!! YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS! THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING! NOT THIS WAY! NOT CAMMY! NOOOOOO!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEEEEEEEE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Deadprez: KICK OUT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: OH PRAISE GOD!
Deadprez: IO’S EYES LOOK BUGGED OUT OF HER HEAD! SHE IS IN TOTAL SHOCK!
( Io Ishimori jumps up to her feet and, proverbially, reads the referee the riot act. )
Gavin Kirkland: CATATONIC! ENRAGED! IO FEELS ROBBED, SHE FEELS LIKE THE REFEREE DIDN’T COUNT FAST ENOUGH, AND NOW SHE’S LETTING HIM HAVE IT! IO IS A COMPETITOR, SHE IS A PRIDE FIGHTER, SHE’S GOT THAT JAPANESE FIGHTING SPIRIT! WHY DO YOU THINK WE HAD TO BOMB THOSE SUMBITCHES TO OBLIVION DURING WWII? THEY’D NEVER STOP! MEN WOMEN AND CHILDREN HAD TO HAVE THEIR BONES COOKED TO ASH BY THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS! AND EVEN THEN THEY DIDN’T WANNA QUIT! IT WASN’T UNTIL WE DID IT TWICE! TWICE! TWO TIMES WE DROPPED THE NUKE ON THEIR ASSES, THAT’S WHAT IT TOOK TO GET THEM TO WAVE THE WHITE FLAG! AND THAT’S WHAT IT’S GOING TO TAKE TO GET IO ISHIMORI TO WAVE THE WHITE FLAG!
( Io continues a headed back and forth with the official, and after an extended period of time, the war of words is interrupted by — )
Deadprez: IO LIFTED OFF HER FEET FROM BEHIND!!!! HOW??? HOW???? BREAKING BARRIERS!!!!!! CAMERON ELLA AVA CAUGHT HER OFF GUARD, AND DROPS OVER HER HOOKING BOTH OF THE LEGS!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “ULTRAnumb” hits, and Cameron Ella Ava sits up pumping a fist in celebration )
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… CAMMMERROOOOOONN ELLAAAAAAAAA AAAVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Io Ishimori had one heck of a showing for some quirky k-pop gothic chick! In all seriousness though, that was one crazy match for both of them, but Ishimori is known for not working well with others, and in the end it was her anger that got the best of her and distracted her from the task at hand – that task being the stunning and sexy EAW Hall of Famer, Cameron Ella Ava!
Deadprez: A damn good match, Io ain’t got too much to be ashamed of, a loss ain’t nothing but a lesson, but I think it’s clear to everyone what cost her the match. Like you said Gavin, it was her temper! She was so obsessed with victory, that her obsession got the better of her and the veteran instincts of Ms. Ava kicked in at the right moment.
(Io Ishimori looks a bit stunned off the loss as she exchanges a stare at Cameron Ella Ava. The two women nodded at each other in mutual respect for each other. Cameron taps the side of her head, almost saying she outsmarted Io. Io is disappointed in the loss, but in a way, it seemed like Io got what she wanted out of Cameron and that was respect. Io exits the ring and makes her way up the ramp. Cameron is celebrating in the ring as she gestures for the Universal Women’s Championship on her gorgeous waist until — )
(“Put Em Up” by Lupe Fiasco replaces “ULTRAnumb” completely out of nowhere as the crowd gives a standing ovation for the Universal Women’s Champion. Cameron Ella Ava has a huge smirk on her face as she has been waiting for Kassidy Heart to make her appearance on Showdown. A moment passes until Kassidy steps out from the back. The crowd’s reaction explodes off the roof. The Universal Women’s Championship is glistening on Kassidy’s shoulder. Kassidy has no emotion on her face as she takes in the reaction of the fans in the Frank Erwin Center.)
Deadprez: OH MY GOD, GAVIN! IS IT REALLY HER??
Gavin Kirkland: My dick just got hard, Deadprez! It’s been so fucking long since I saw this I have been in the same building as the beautiful and blonde Kassidy Heart! Where’s my Jerkins?
Deadprez: Cameron Ella Ava went to Jenny Punk and requested that Kassidy Heart will be on Showdown this week! It seems like Jenny managed to answer that request! Cameron issued out the challenge to whoever walked out of the Universal Women’s Championship Match at Operation: Doomsday as the winner! It didn’t matter who won, Cameron is next for the challenge. I wonder if we’re going to hear Kassidy’s response to that.
(Kassidy Heart steps inside the ring as Cameron Ella Ava still has that smirk on her face. The two women meet up in the middle of the ring and stare at each other for a moment. Cameron points at the Universal Women’s Championship on Kassidy’s shoulder before gesturing for that championship on her waist. Kassidy raises the Universal Women’s Championship high in the air as the crowd cheers. From that, it should be pretty damn clear what Kassidy’s answer to Cameron’s challenge is.)
Deadprez: I think that confirms everything, Gavin!
(The unzipping of pants is heard from Gavin Kirkland’s side.)
Gavin Kirkland: Why are you giving me that look, Deadprez? Our Universal Women’s Championship Match at Territorial Invasion is set. Kassidy Heart vs. Cameron Ella Ava! Do you know how many bottles of Jerkins I’m going to need to get me through that match?
Deadprez: While you get yourself situated, we are going to head to another commercial break!
(Commercial break featuring Gavin Kirkland and his knock-off of Jergins, Jerkins! Don’t you guys ever had a moment where you wanted to unzip your pants in public, pull out your…wait…no? Welp.)
( “It Follows” by Cane Hill blasts through the speaker as Xander Payne walks onto the stage, scanning the crowd in attendance )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Gina Romano: The following contest is a TAG TEAM MATCH UP scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, from Brampton, Ontario, Canada weighing in tonight at 240 POOUNNNDS… XXAANNNDDEERRRRR PAYYYNEEEE!!!
Deadprez: I tried to get a word with Xander Payne a lil bit ago to pick his brain and get a feel for his thought process over the past number of weeks, really since the collapse of The WIldcards at Midsummer Massacre. He ain’t a real approachable dude to begin with, but his attitude says it all, he feels no ounce of guilt for turning against Myles – and he feels even less for going out of his way to make Myles’ time here a living hell.
Gavin Kirkland: Children cried when The Wildcards fell apart Deadprez! But you wouldn’t know it with the lack of shame written all over Xander’s being, he feels justified in what he’s done, he has mentally removed himself from being partners of any kind with The Soldier! Problem for Xander is, tonight he still needs Myles just as much as Myles needs him, if they’re going to survive the GOATzo Victims Unit!
Deadprez: Did you just make that up?
( “Enemy Strike” by Yuki Hayashi hits as Myles walks out onto the stage receiving a thunderous ovation from the audience. Xander Payne yells at the crowd, telling them to “shut up”, and Myles continues to the ring with an intense look about him. )
Gina Romano: His partner, hailing from Melbourne, Australia weighing in at 208 POOUNNNDSS!!! MMMMYYLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!!!
Deadprez: Myles has every inclination inside of him to march into that ring right now and beat Xander Payne’s ass, and a lot of people would say he’s justified in doing it! But it would be the dumbest mistake he could possibly make tonight, because like you said Gavin these two are going to need each other.
Gavin Kirkland: Just to preface of course our supple breasted Showdown General Manager Jenny Punk made it abundantly clear just before the show began, from what I’m hearing she refuses to tolerate any physicality between these two! Now is not the night they are to come to blows, now is the night where they swallow their pride much like I’d like to swallow the milk from Jenny’s big MILF titties, and they’re going to have to put on their best effort to make it out of the night in good shape.
( “Starboy” by The Weeknd hits, and Ahren Fournier steps out onto the stage with a confident smirk on his face, dressed to compete. “Starboy” transitions into “Odee” by A Boogie, and Chris Elite makes his entrance followed by the Bozo Victims Unit, dressed to compete. He riles up the crowd and he and Ahren walk towards the ring together, discussing strategy for the match. )
Gina Romano: Their opponents… weighing in tonight at a combined weight of 420 POOOUNNNDSSS… THE TEAM OF AHRRREENNN FOOOURNNIEEERRRR AND CHRIIIIISSSS EEEELLLIIITEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Last week Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier picked up a very solid win against The Mechanical Animals; but despite the lack of chemistry between Payne and Myles, you can’t deny what they were able to achieve together begrudgingly or not.
Deadprez: You right Gavin, this isn’t going to be the same obstacle this time around. There’s going to be more demanded from this unlikely tandem of Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier, and you can tell that’s clear from the get go. I like to see these two talking and strategizing, it means they take this match seriously, and it gives everybody else more of a reason to take their alliance seriously.
Gavin Kirkland: Elite is willing to start off the match, but Myles and Payne have a much more contentious discussion regarding who will kick things off. Eventually the official interrupts the bickering and decides for them, shooing Myles onto the apron and allowing Xander to remain in the ring.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Deadprez: Chris Elite and Xander Payne circling the ring, slowly closing in before Elite brings Xander on his back with a leg trip followed by a lateral press. Xander quickly shoves Chris off of him, and Chris snaps in a side headlock.
Gavin Kirkland: You know what sucks about wrestling? We’ve seen headlocks a million times, but how many people have ever been in a firm headlock by a grown man?
Deadprez: Guarantee you not even 1% of the people watching have been in one Gavin. I’m from the hood, I’ve seen people get knocked out by having some Deebo muthafucka snap one in real tight on some poor unsuspecting victim from out of nowhere. Nevertheless the only Deebo looking mf around here is at ringside, in the form of Big Mike, so Payne is actually able to sling Elite off of him. Chris rolls up to his feet, they come at each other, side kick to the midsection by Chris. Shoot kick to the thigh, letting out a big yell from Xander before he strikes back with multiple snap jabs! Boxing up the leader of the BVU! Xander backs into the ropes and comes after him, ELITE WITH A LOW CROSSBODY TO THE LEGS TO TRIP XANDER TO THE FLOOR! ELITE FOLLOWS UP WITH A JUMPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP TO THE SPINE! Now he springs up the turnbuckle, looking for the BIONIC STOMP RIGHT INTO THE MIDSECTION OF XANDER PAYNE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Nobody home! Xander quickly rolls out of that, Elite lands on his feet, rolling backwards again and gliding back up to a standing position, SUPERKICK!!! PLANTED RIGHT ACROSS THE JAW FROM XANDER! Elite stumbles back into the corner, and Xander Payne backs into the corner, dragging the soles of his boots and preparing himself… he charges at Chris Elite now with a CANNON BALL!!!
Deadprez: Elite combat rolls out of harm’s way and jogs over to Ahren to tag his partner in! Xander is hung upside down to dry there in the corner and Ahren sends Chris into the corner with an Irish whip! JUMPING LOW DROPKICK INTO THE TORSO OF PAYNE!!! AHREN JOGS AFTER HIM, RUNNING INTO THE CORNER WITH A CANNONBALL ROPE-AIDED LOW DROPKICK, RIGHT INTO THE TORSO AGAIN! Ahren drags Xander out of the corner and covers.
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO-
Gavin Kirkland: Payne kicks out. Ahren applying a hammerlock behind the back of Payne, and pressing against his neck to keep him down to the ground on his side. He slams a knee into the kidneys, and this time mounts over him transitioning into a camel clutch! Xander trying to rip Ahren’s hands apart, and Ahren does a sitting drop, taking away the leverage Xander was trying to build. AHREN REACHES FOR ONE OF HIS OPPONENT’S WRISTS NOW, TRYING TO RIP AT THE FINGERS! BUT XANDER SLAMS BACK A COUPLE OF BLOWS TO THE JAW, causing Ahren to fall off of him! Xander uses the ropes nearby him to rise, and AHREN FIRES OFF WITH A RUNNING KNEE! XANDER CAUGHT THE LEG UNDER HIS ARM! AHREN WITH A SLAP ACROSS THE FACE! Ahren takes Xander by the nape of the neck over to his corner, but Xander kicks Chris Elite in the midsection, and clocks Ahren over the nose with an elbow! He tosses Fournier into the center of the ring by the nape of the neck, and turns to Elite with a wild right hand! Ducked by Elite! Forearm to the face from Elite over the ropes! Xander turns around and is reeled into a SMALL PACKAGE PIN! BUT PAYNE REVERSES THE SMALL PACKAGE JUST AS THE OFFICIAL SIDES TO THE MAT!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWW-
Deadprez: Ahren kicks out, the two scramble back up, PROTECT YA NECK FROM AHREN!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: DUCKED BY XANDER! HE SCOOPS AHREN UP FROM BEHIND! ARGENTINE NECKBREAKER FROM PAYNE!!! INTO THE HOOK OF THE LEG!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOO-
Deadprez: Another kick out by Ahren! Xander Payne crawls over to the corner where Myles is standing, and he looks up at Myles with sheer disgust. Of all people to be his tag team partner, Myles is the last person he could have possibly asked for tonight. And Xander slaps Myles across the arm, demanding that Myles holds up his end of the deal. Myles slowly steps into the ring while Xander rolls out to the apron. After a short period of tension Myles turns his focus to Ahren who’s crawling over to his own corner. Myles quickly stops him in his tracks, grabbing him by the boot and pops him up by the leg, to drop him knee first into the canvas! Ahren rolls around favoring his knee, and he’s on both knees clutching at that hamstring. Myles with a shoot kick to the right arm! Shoot kick to the chest! Another shoot kick to the chest! A third one! A fourth! Now he slings the arm of Ahren over his own shoulder, and hoists him up for a vertical suplex! Rolls through, bringing Ahren up from the floor again, another vertical suplex! Rolls through again, hoisting him up… and a RUNNING VERTICAL SUPLEX! Lateral press right after!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-
Gavin Kirkland: Kick out once again by Fournier. The carved from granite stud from Melbourne, Australia has so much raw strength to match the uncanny agility, and he’s putting it on display now, DEADLIFTING AHREN FROM THE FLOOR AND UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS FOR A SITOUT POWERBOMB!!!
Deadprez: Not if Ahren can help it! Ahren hammering punches into the temple as he’s sitting on Myles’ shoulders! There’s only so many unprotected blows to the head Myles can take! Myles ends up improvising, backpedaling and placing Ahren at the corner turnbuckle with him at a standing position on the second ropes! NOW MYLES TUCKS THE HEAD OF FOURNIER IN AND GOES FOR A CORNER SUPERKICK!!!! NO AHREN CAUGHT HIM FIRST WITH A DOUBLE BOOT MULE KICK STRAIGHT TO THE FACE! Ahren turns around on the middle rope, JUMPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP FROM THE SECOND ROPE!!! Hoists him up from the floor with a rear waistlock, and backpedals into the corner for Chris Elite to tag himself in! Elite jumps over the ropes, sprints across the ring, and Ahren keeps Myles held firmly in the rear waistlock… ELITE REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES LOOKING TO DELIVER A RUNNING ATTACK ON MYLES!
Gavin Kirkland: MYLES WITH A STANDING SWITCH! SHOVING FOURNIER INTO ELITE! Both of their bodies go crashing into each other! Ahren is doubled over, and Myles SPRINGBOARDS OFF OF AHREN’S BACK AND ONTO CHRIS ELITE WITH THE WEST COAST POP!!! OR IN AUSSIE TERMINOLOGY, WE SHOULD CALL IT THE GOLD COAST POP!!! HOLDS IN THE PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONNNEEEEE!!! TWWWOOOOOOOOOOO-
Deadprez: Elite muscles Myles off of him, stacking Myles up onto his shoulders with a counter pin!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWW-
Deadprez: Myles rolls out of that. The two recover, Myles comes right after him with the German suplex! Elite twists out of it and counters with an Irish whip! Myles reverses the whip, sending Elite careening off the ropes, MYLES WITH A BACK BODY DROP! ELITE ROLLS DOWN MYLES’ BACK AND LANDS SAFELY! Myles going for a discus forearm! Blocked by Elite! Two forearms to the face from Elite as a counter! Followed by a shoot kick! BACKFIST! AND COMPLETING THE 5 BOROUGH COMBO WITH A FULL FORCE LARIAT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: MYLES DUCKS UNDERNEATH IT! AND HOISTS ELITE!!! DE FACTO!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: ELITE ESCAPES AND LANDS BEHIND THE BACK! GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: DID YOU SEE THAT?! THAT WAS LIKE A JUMPING GERMAN SUPLEX!!! MYLES LANDED RIGHT ON HIS NECK!!!
Deadprez: AND THE JUMPING GERMAN SUPLEX IS ROLLED INTO THE ONE WINGED ANGEL!!!! LONG KISS GOODNIGHT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER COUNTER FROM MYLES!!! WHERE DID THAT EVEN COME FROM?! HOW DID HE MANAGE TO DELIVER THAT?! STUPENDOUS! AS YOU CAN ONLY EXPECT, BOTH MEN ARE LAID OUT!!!!
( The crowd gives a big roar of applause in appreciation for the exchange. )
Deadprez: Myles and Elite putting on a show, and Elite is crawling over to his partner looking to get a fresh Ahren Fournier back in action after being spiked on top of his head with that reverse frankensteiner! Myles is rolling away, not to his own partner’s corner though, which is clearly infuriating his partner.
Xander Payne: (off-mic) I’M OVER HERE YOU INCOMPETANT BOZO!
Gavin Kirkland: LOOK AT THIS! Xander Payne steps into the ring, brushing off intervention from the official, and Xander drags Chris Elite up from the floor and illegally dumps him through the ropes and out of the ring! NOW HE CHARGES OVER TO AHREN AND BLASTS HIM ACROSS THE FACE WITH A “BLOODY NOSE”!!! DISCUS PALM STRIKE STRAIGHT INTO THE NOSE, KNOCKING HIM OFF THE APRON AND DOWN TO RINGSIDE! Xander going into business for himself, completely disregarding the authority of the official, as he’s out of the ring and back on Chris Elite’s tail! Xander Payne unloading with closed fist punches hammering into the skull! Big Mike is closing in, not happy to see the foul play on the part of Xander Payne, but Xander shoots him an evil glare almost daring him to interfere and get his buddy disqualified. Now Payne straightens up Chris Elite… and sends him RUNNING ACROSS RINGSIDE FULL SPEED AHEAD, TOSSING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE WITH A CHILLING THUD!!! PAYNE RIPS ELITE FROM THE FLOOR YET AGAIN, TAKING HIM BY THE WRIST NOW, AND SENDS HIM ACROSS RINGSIDE ONCE MORE, RIGHT IN FRONT OF US THIS TIME, WITH AN IRISH WHIP!!! CRASHING CHRIS ELITE INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!! XANDER PAYNE SPRINTS AROUND THE RING, APPROACHING A RECOVERING AHREN FOURNIER WHO’S SEATED ALONG THE BARRICADE AFTER BEING BLINDSIDED, AND HE CHARGES INTO AHREN FOURNIER AND CRASHES INTO HIM WITH A THUNDEROUS CANNONBALL!!! XANDER PAYNE WRECKING SHOP!
Deadprez: Like a house of fire! Xander climbs up to his corner on the apron now and DEMANDS that Myles tags him in, and Myles reluctantly obliges, still favoring the back of his neck. Xander Payne steps into the ring now and… and UNCEREMONIOUSLY TOSSES MYLES OUT OF THE RING!
Xander Payne (off-mic): DO WHAT YOU DO BEST MYLES, WATCH THE BIG BOYS TAKE ACTION WHILE YOU WATCH FROM THE SIDELINES.
Gavin Kirkland: Not like there’s any love lost at this point, you almost had to expect it! Chris Elite is right in front of us recovering, and Xander has his sights set on Elite from the ring…. oh boy, oh please no God no, we’re too close to the San Andreas fault, don’t set the fucker off big boy! Xander no! Please stop! Don’t do it!
Deadprez: XANDER PAYNE WITH A DIVING SENTON HILO, CLEARING THE RING ROPES, TAKING CHRIS ELITE DOWN AT RINGSIDE!!!! DAMN THAT WAS AWESOME! Xander Payne even getting a little bit of props from the crowd from that, and they hate his ass! Xander sends Elite back into the ring shortly after, and takes his time before climbing up to the apron, and going straight for the top rope! Xander slowly but surely watching Elite writhe on the floor, before assuming a perched up position high above the ring.
Gavin Kirkland: STAR STRUCK!!! AHREN FOURNIER WITH THE FAKE SUPERKICK TO THE SHIN! XANDER STUMBLES DOWN TO A KNEELING POSITION AT THE TOP ROPE! SUPERKICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!!! XANDER PAYNE IS BARELY ABLE TO MAINTAIN HIS KNEELING POSITION UP AT THE TOP ROPE! AND THE OFFICIAL ADMONISHES AHREN FOR HIS INVOLVEMENT…. LOOK AT THIS!!! CHRIS ELITE SPRINTS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!!! SLINGS XANDER’S ARM OVER HIS SHOULDER, AND LEAPS OFF! BROOKLYN HIGH!!!! SPANISH FLY FROM THE TOP ROPE, BRINGING BOTH MEN CRASHING INTO THE RING!!! HIGH PRESSURE TIME FOR BOTH OF THESE ATHLETES, AFTER A CLUTCH INTERFERENCE BY FOURNIER AND AN EVEN MORE CRUCIAL FOLLOW UP FROM ELITE! ELITE AND PAYNE CRAWLING DESPERATELY OVER TO THEIR RESPECTIVE TEAM CORNERS… A WISE MOVE FROM BOTH PARTIES TO DEFER TO THEIR PARTNERS, AND AHREN CLEARLY WANTS IN ON THIS, REACHING OUT HIS HAND DESPERATELY WAITING FOR THE TAG! MYLES IS ALSO AT THE CORNER, PREPARED TO CONTINUE BATTLE, AND WAITING ON HIS EX TEAMMATE TO REACH HIM.
( A moment of time passses. )
Deadprez: CHRIS ELITE GETS THE HOT TAG!!! AND XANDER PAYNE JUMPS UP TO DO THE SAM-
( The fans erupt, as Myles jumps off from the apron. )
Gavin Kirkland: WHAT IN THE?
( Xander Payne looks up completely dumbfounded, and Myles shakes his head “no” before taking his leave )
Deadprez: He’s leaving! And you know what?! I honestly don’t even blame jit! Not after that blatant disrespect from earlier! You made your bed Xander, now you gotta lie in it!
Gavin Kirkland: Xander Payne just laying over the bottom rope completely incensed, calling for Myles to get back there! BOX OFFICE SMASH!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHRIS ELITE FROM RINGSIDE BLASTS XANDER PAYNE ACROSS THE SIDE OF THE HEAD WHEN HE WASN’T LOOKING!!! ELITE CAUGHT HIM SLIPPING, AND AHREN DRAGS XANDER UP FROM THE FLOOR, REAR WAISTLOCK APPLIED, AND BACKPEDALS INTO HIS OWN CORNER WHERE ELITE RUSHED OVER TO TAG HIMSELF IN! NOW AHREN TAKES PAYNE OUT OF THE CORNER, THE CLIMAX!!!! RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE!!!! SENDING XANDER SPINNING AROUND, INTO ANOTHER BOX OFFICE SMASH FROM CHRIS ELITE!!!!! AHREN CATCHES XANDER’S BODY BEFORE IT FALLS DOWN, AND ELITE SCOOPS HIM FROM BEHIND!!! GERMAN SUPLEX!!!! ROLLS THROUGH, INTO THE ONE WINGED ANGEL……. EXCEPT ELITE DROPS TO HIS OWN KNEES, KEEPING A DAZED XANDER PAYNE ON HIS SHOULDERS AT A GROUND LEVEL –
Deadprez: PROTECT YA NECK!!!!!!! CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL BY AHREN!!!! KNOCKING XANDER PAYNE BACK, WHILE HE’S STILL ON CHRIS ELITE’S SHOULDERS!!! ELITE STANDS UP WITH XANDER PAYNE’S WEIGHT ON HIS SHOULDERS, AND SEALS THE DEAL!!! LONG!!!!!!!! KISS!!!!! GOODNIGHT!!!!!!!!!! ONE WINGED ANGEL DELIVERED, ROLLING THROUGH INTO THE PIN!!!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “Odee” by A Boogie hits, and the referee raises both Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier’s arms before Chris and Ahren dap each other up and are joined in celebration by the Bozo Victims Unit. )
Gina Romano: Here are your winners, the team of CHRIS ELITE AND AHREN FOURNIER!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: GOD DAMN RIDICULOUS TANDEM OFFENSE!!!! XANDER PAYNE JUST EXPERIENCED A MURDER DEATH KILL, AND UNFORTUNATELY FOR HIM HE’S BURNED A BRIDGE TOO MANY IN GOING OUT OF HIS WAY TO DISRESPECT HIS ALREADY ESTRANGED TAG TEAM PARTNER!
( Myles is on top of the ramp, completely indifferent to what just took place, and we get a replay of the tandem offense including The Climax transitioning into the Box Office Smash, and the PYK from Ahren transitioned seamlessly into the Long Kiss Goodnight. Elite and Fournier continue their celebration in the ring. )
Deadprez: Those ending combos from Chris Elite and Ahren Fournier though :ahh: that was so smooth, like silk, like butter. These cats mesh so well, it’s disturbing. Both World Champions, both two of the best in the company, both with huge egos and big personality, yet they got so much chemistry between them.
Gavin Kirkland: Sometimes great individuals can become an even better alliance. I won’t make any bold declarations just yet, but I think we can almost say for certain that if these two continue the trend that they’re on, skies are the limit!
(The camera pans to Jenny Punk backstage in her office. A positive reaction for the legend and Showdown General Manager. She is looking at her flatscreen television. She is focusing on what she is watching. A few moments later, she sighs and shakes her head. Jenny wasn’t too happy about this particular thing, and you can see the disapproval in her face before hearing a knock on her door. Jenny pauses whatever she was watching with her remote.)
Jenny Punk: Come in!
(The door opening gets heard as Jamie O’Hara walks into the camera shot. The crowd in the arena gives a massive pop for Showdown’s captain. Jamie is dressed in his ring gear as he will be competing in a Last Man Standing Match against Lucas Johnson in a matter of moments.)
Jamie O’Hara: You wanted to see me about something?
Jenny Punk: Yes! I was analyzing your match from last week! You did a fantastic job last week! You showed the fighting spirit and intelligence that goes onto winning a War Games Match. But…
Jamie O’Hara: But, what?
Jenny Punk: How about I show you?
(Jenny Punk extends the remote, rewinds the flat screen before pressing play. Jamie and Jenny’s eyes turn to the flatscreen. The camera looks at what was on the flat screen, and it happens to be Jamie O’Hara vs. Lance Blackfyre in a Steel Cage Match. The same match from last week’s episode of Showdown.)
Deadprez: SHATTERED JOY!!!! LANCE BLACKFYRE TAKES OFF, AND DESTROYS HIM WITH THE BICYCLE KICK!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: JAMIE JUMPS OUT OF THE WAY!!!! LANCE’S BOOT RIPS THROUGH THE CHAIN LINK!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME????
(Lance Blackfyre’s boot is stuck in one of the camera holes for the steel cage, and he struggles to pull his foot out, while a half-dead Jamie O’Hara peers back at the carnage. )
Gavin Kirkland: THAT TINY CAMERA HOLE HAS BEEN RIPPED WIDE OPEN BY THE MASSIVE BOOT OF THIS MONSTER! BLACKFYRE SCREAMING AND SPEWING PROFANITY, JAMIE HAS GOT TO GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE! JAMIE O’HARA CLIMBING UP, LUGGING ALONG TO THE BEST OF HIS ABILITIES TO GET HIMSELF UP THE CAGE AND OUT OF BOILING WATER! THE ANXIOUS AUDIENCE BEGGING JAMIE O’HARA TO CLIMB FASTER, BUT LOOK AT THE BRUISES ON HIS BACK! THE MESH COLORED MARKS ALL OVER HIS SKIN! THE MAN LOOKS LIKE HE HAS BEEN RAN OVER BY A GODDAMN BUS! IT IS TAKING MORE WILLPOWER NOW THAN IT HAS EVER TAKEN HIM BEFORE…….. BUT BY SOME ACT OF GOD, HE’S WILLED HIS WAY TO THE TOP!
( Jamie O’Hara collapses at the top of the steel cage, and the referee is attempting to help Lance Blackfyre free his boot. )
Deadprez: JAMIE ON THE OTHER SIDE, DANGLING FROM THE TOP… AND HE DROPS DOWN TO THE FLOOR AT RINGSIDE, MERCIFULLY IT’S OVER!
( DING! DING! DING! )
(“Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA [EAW Edit] hits, and Jamie O’Hara is down on all fours with his marked up body, pounding his fist onto the floor after the brutal endeavour he just endured. )
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… JAAAMMMIIEEEEEEEEE OOOO’HAAARRRAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
(After that, the video pauses. The camera goes back to Jenny Punk and Jamie O’Hara, who had just watched back that piece of footage. Jamie looks at the screen with pride as Jenny shakes her head, not too happy about what she had watched.)
Jamie O’Hara: That was a brutal match. I survived and told the story. :wow:
Jenny Punk: That’s the issue, Jamie. You survived. You escaped the cage before Lance could dismantle and put you on the shelf. On any given day, I would have accepted that as a victory. Escaping the cage was the smart thing to do when going up against someone like Lance, but you escape the cage at Territorial Invasion, and you forfeit Team Showdown and cost us the match. That’s not what I want happening. A match such as War Games would overwhelm the average Elitist. You, Jamie, you’re not just an average Elitist. I’m not looking for Team Showdown to “survive” War Games. I’m looking for Team Showdown to win War Games. We need to be the last team standing in that ring. We need to be the one standing as the winner. One of the reasons why I booked this match this week, Jamie. I need you to prove that you are capable of Showdown being the last team standing at Territorial Invasion. If you can’t win your match tonight, I may need to reconsider the captain of Team Showdown. Don’t make me go there.
Jamie O’Hara: You worry more than Cam does. You have nothing to worry about, Jenny. It’s Lucas Johnson. I can defeat him in my sleep. Tonight is the night that I finally rid of him and any ideas that he can be an Ace. I’m going to enjoy inflicting as much punishment as possible.
Jenny Punk: Great! 😀 Look, I am sorry for rushing you. Watching Voltage last week and them already having a team for War Games has got me worried. Dynasty already has a captain in Serena Bennett. We need to have an official team by next week, Jamie. I would love nothing more than for Team Showdown to get War Games ready as we head towards that match.
Jamie O’Hara: Look, if I don’t get a team assembled by next week, you can pick the two other representatives. Deciding is a complicated process, but I’ll get it done. I want to make sure that decision I make doesn’t impact the team negatively.
Jenny Punk: Next week, Jamie. I’m not going to be waiting for any longer for this team to get assembled.
(Jamie O’Hara nods in agreement with Jenny Punk as he makes his way out of the camera shot. The scene fades with Jenny looking at the flatscreen television with a worried look on her face.)
(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Media Tag plays through the speakers. Instantly, the crowd boos as Lucas Johnson makes his way from the back. He has a small towel wrapped around his neck. Next to him is his advocate, Albert Hitchman is screaming at the top of the lung that Lucas is the Ace and how he will conquer Jamie O’Hara.)
Gina Romano: THE FOLLOWING MATCH IS A LAST MAN STANDING MATCH…THIS MATCH IS NO DISQUALIFICATIONS AND NO COUNT OUTS. THE ONLY WAY TO WIN THE MATCH IS BY HAVING YOUR OPPONENT BE UNABLE TO ANSWER THE TEN COUNT…INTRODUCING FIRST…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY ALBERT HITCHMAN…FROM ATLANTA, GEORGIA…WEIGHING IN 205 POUNDS…HE IS THE “WRESTLING MACHINE”…LUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCAAAAASSSSSSSSSSS JOOOOOHHHHHHNNNNNSSSSSOOOOOONNNN!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: This is a match that Lucas Johnson has waited nine months for! Lucas had done everything in his power to get this match. He even called himself The Ace for a period of time before he was shut up by Noah Reigner. It seemed like his desire to get a match with Jamie claimed down near the end of last season. With this match being booked, Lucas must have been licking his lips at finally getting the match that he has been dying to get.
Deadprez: There are people who don’t believe that Lucas Johnson knows what he is getting himself into! This is Jamie O’Hara! This is The Ace of Elite Answers Wrestling. While Jamie was main eventing Pain for Pride, Lucas was in Cash in the Vault. Jamie had better things to worry about than waste his time worrying about what Lucas is saying.
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas Johnson has shown his intentions at the PURE Championship. Do you think that if Lucas manages to defeat Jamie, that could make Jenny Punk consider Lucas as a contender for Mark Michaels or Harlow Reichert?
Deadprez: Possibly, but he needs to get through Jamie first.
(Lucas Johnson is already in the ring. Albert Hitchman is taking up his client as “Young and Bitter” dies down. “Ultimate Battle” by ZENTA takes over the speakers. The crowd gives a standing ovation to Jamie O’Hara as he has a look of confidence on his face. He doesn’t feel any pressure about this match.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING HIS OPPONENT…FROM MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA…WEIGHING IN 190 POUNDS…HE IS “THE ACE OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING”…JAAAAAAAMMMMMMIIIIIIIIIEEEEEE OOOOOOOOOOOOOO’HAAAAARRRRRAAAAAAAAA!!!!
Deadprez: Speaking of Jamie O’Hara, if he wasn’t feeling any pressure about going into this match against Lucas Johnson, the possibility of Showdown General Manager Jenny Punk reconsidering Jamie as captain of Team Showdown should be enough to motivate Jamie to not only keep Lucas down for the ten count, but for the rest of the night!
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie’s got this. No one should ever doubt him. :wow: He has so much on his mind, he needs to be a good captain, husband and lover. He needs to make sure that his wife doesn’t leave him for Lucas, but if Cameron doesn’t want Jamie, I’ll take good care of him. No homo.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie O’Hara. Lucas Johnson. Battle of The Aces. Last Man Standing Match.
Deadprez: Okay, now call Lucas Johnson an Ace without laughing.
Gavin Kirkland: I can’t. ?
Deadprez: Like Lucas Johnson has been stating this week, this match is nine months in the making. Jamie O’Hara couldn’t give two fucks about this match. Jamie is beneath Lucas, but Lucas has been clamoring for a chance to face Jamie and he has that right now. Lucas can’t let this opportunity slip past him.
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie has stated on MULTIPLE occasions that he doesn’t see Lucas as anything worth his time! Jamie thinks of this match as nothing more of an annoyance for him! It’s more like a hindrance than something that he is just wanting to do on a Saturday night! Jamie may not look like he gives a fuck about this match, but he has something to prove to Showdown General Manager, Jenny Punk! He needs to prove that she has her trust on the right man as the leader for this team! Lucas goes for a collar-and-elbow tie up on the former World Heavyweight Champion! Jamie does the same thing back to him, but Jamie is quick to get Lucas in side headlock! Lucas manages to shove Jamie to his side as he rebounds off the ropes! Lucas is going for a forearm, but Jamie O’Hara caches Lucas with an arm drag! Lucas gets back to his feet Jamie connects with another arm drag! Once again, Lucas Johnson gets up, but Jamie manages to catch in another arm drag! This time, Jamie maintains hold of Lucas’ arm! He has a standing arm bar on the former New Breed Champion!
Deadprez: Lucas Johnson manages to spin himself around and kick Jamie in the stomach! At the same time, this gets The Ace to tumble back a bit! Lucas kips himself up to his feet again as he goes right after Jamie with a clothesline! Jamie manages to duck himself before connecting with a spinning backhand! Lucas tumbles back as Jamie pulls Lucas closer and connects with a hip toss! Lucas manages to land himself on his feet, but Jamie puts a halt to that before connecting with a dropkick to Lucas’ back! The Wrestling Machine falls face first as he manages to find some refuge one of the corners! Jamie O’Hara rushes towards Lucas with a nasty looking Mafia Kick! Lucas falls down to a seated position!
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie O’Hara is taking a couple steps back as he measures his competition or whatever he considers Lucas Johnson at the moment! HE RUSHES TOWARDS LUCAS AT THE CORNER — HESITATION DROPKICK TO THE CORNER! IT NAILS LUCAS AT THE FACE! LUCAS WOBBLES FORWARD IN RESPONSE, BUT JAMIE MANAGES TO PICK UP LUCAS WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY SUPLEX! THERE, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT MOMENT TO GO FOR THE COVER, BUT LET’S REMEMBER GUYS — THIS IS A LAST MAN STANDING MATCH. THE ONLY WAY TO WIN THE MATCH IS BY WEARING YOUR OPPONENT DOWN SO THAT THEY DON’T MAKE THE REFEREE’S TEN COUNT! It seems like Jamie is not going to wait for Lucas to get to his feet! The match is still young as Jamie begins to unload with a series of forearms towards the former New Breed Champion’s face! Jamie gets Lucas to his knees for taking a couple steps back! Jamie runs before connecting with a knee to the back of Lucas’ skull!
Deadprez: No! Somehow, Lucas Johnson has eyes in the back of his head because he was able to dodge one of Jamie O’Hara’s deadly knees! He has some of the most lethal knee strikes in the company! One small knee strike could get Lucas a concussion! Lucas knew that and rolls himself out of the ring! The crowd doesn’t seem to be too happy about that, but JAMIE IS NOT LETTING LUCAS BUY HIMSELF ANYTIME AS HE LAUNCHES HIMSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE TO CONNECT WITH A TOPE CON HILO ON LUCAS JOHNSON!
Gavin Kirkland: Both men are taken down, but Jamie O’Hara is showing some signs of still being in this match! I have no doubts that Jamie will make it out of this match alive! He is The Ace after all! I would trust this man to lead Showdown to victory! Jamie is up to his feet as he goes near the timekeeper’s area! He pulls out a steel chair as he raises up! The crowd is cheering this beautiful man in approval as he slams the steel chair closed! Whenever someone slams the steel chair closed, you know trouble is coming! LUCAS JOHNSON IS GETTING ON ALL FOURS AS JAMIE SLAMS THE STEEL CHAIR ONTO THE SPINE OF LUCAS! LUCAS DROPS DOWN INSTANTLY, BUT JAMIE IS NOT STOPPING THERE, DEADPREZ! JAMIE LIFTS THE CHAIR UP BEFORE SLAMMING IT AGAINST THE SPINE OF LUCAS! YOU CAN HEAR LUCAS CRYING OUT IN PAIN! IT SEEMS LIKE SWEET MUSIC TO JAMIE’S EARS AS HE CONTINUES TO ASSAULT THE WRESTLING MACHINE WITH THE STEEL CHAIR TO HIS SPINE! THIS CROWD IS EATING IT ALL UP! ALBERT HITCHMAN IS IN THE BACKGROUND, SCREAMING AND PLEADING FOR JAMIE TO STOP HITTING HIS CLIENT WITH THE STEEL CHAIR! JAMIE IS NOT STOPPING! HE WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO END THIS MATCH. NOT BECAUSE HE’S AFRAID OF LUCAS, BUT HE PROBABLY SEES THIS MATCH AS A WASTE OF HIS TIME. UNDERSTANDABLE. :wow:
Deadprez: Jamie O’Hara throws the busted up steel chair to the side as he leaves Lucas Johnson! It seems like Jamie is going to let the official count on Lucas now!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!… FIVE!…
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas Johnson rises back to his feet! Jamie O’Hara proceeds to continue where he left the assault! JAMIE MANAGES TO BATTERY RAM LUCAS ONTO THE BARRICADE! JAMIE BEGINS TO KNEE LUCAS ON THE RIBS WITH SOME KNEES! JAMIE PICKS UP LUCAS BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A FLAPJACK! LUCAS’ FACE COLLIDES WITH THE TOP OF THE BARRICADE! INSTEAD OF COLLAPSING DOWN, LUCAS IS TEETERING FROM THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA TO RINGSIDE! JAMIE GOES TO CONTINUE HIS ASSAULT —
Albert Hitchman (off-mic): DON’T YOU DARE MOVE!
(Albert Hitchman rushes towards and stands behind Lucas Johnson who is still teetering on the barricade. Albert is trying to be fearless as he’s trying to convince Jamie O’Hara to stop dismantling his client.)
Deadprez: — Is Albert Hitchman going to find himself getting involved for the sake of his client? Albert Hitchman stands behind Lucas! Jamie O’Hara is demanding for Albert to get the hell out of the way, but Albert is not doing that? What makes Albert believe that this will turn out well for him? The last time that he found himself involved in Lucas’ matches, he ended up with a Kiss to the Head by The Visual Prophet! Something tells me that Jamie won’t think twice by dropping him! He doesn’t give a damn if Albert Hitchman is just an advocate. Anyone that stands in his way of winning a match is a threat to him. Jamie will not hesitate with eliminating that threat from the match.
Gavin Kirkland: JAMIE O’HARA JUST NAILED ALBERT HITCHMAN WITH A HEADBUTT! INSTANTLY, ALBERT IS TAKEN DOWN! IT WAS ALMOST EFFORTLESS TO TAKE THE HITCH DOWN!
Deadprez: LUCAS JOHNSON HAS THE RING BELL AND SLAMS IT ONTO THE SKULL OF JAMIE O’HARA! FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THIS MATCH, THE ACE OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING IS DROPPED DOWN! LUCAS GETS A GOOD GRASP OF THAT BELL AND SLAMS IT ONTO THE SPINE OF JAMIE! JAMIE IS DROPPED DOWN FACE FIRST! ALBERT HITCHMAN IS ENCOURAGING FOR LUCAS TO CONTINUE SLAMMING JAMIE WITH THE BELL! LUCAS DOES THAT! HE RAISES THE BELL ABOVE HIS HEAD BEFORE SLAMMING IT AGAINST JAMIE’S SPINE ONCE AGAIN! You can see Lucas breathing heavily! You can see the determination in his eyes! He wants to prove to Jamie that he shouldn’t be underestimating him! Lucas wants to prove that he can stand toe-to-toe with someone of Jamie’s caliber! Albert may believe that Lucas is capable of doing so, but winning this match will give Lucas all the confidence in the world! What happens if Lucas Johnson defeats Jamie O’Hara? What does this mean for Jamie going into War Games?
Gavin Kirkland: Does Jenny Punk need to replace Jamie? There is no one else capable of giving Showdown victory that it deserves! :lupe: I hope not! There is is not better captain than Jamie O’Hara! I can assure you that, Deadprez! LUCAS JOHNSON PLACES THE BELL DOWN AND GETS A BEATEN JAMIE BACK TO HIS FEET! LUCAS IS GETTING JAMIE IN POSITION FOR THE SKULL CRUSHING FINALE — THE FULL NELSON FACEBUSTER!
Deadprez: JAMIE O’HARA GETS PLANTED FACE FIRST ONTO THE RING BELL! THIS DOESN’T LOOK GOOD FOR TEAM SHOWDOWN’S CAPTAIN! LUCAS JOHNSON PICKS JAMIE UP BEFORE THROWING HIM OVER TOWARDS US! LET’S GET OUT OF THE WAY, GAVIN!
Gavin Kirkland: DON’T WORRY, JAMIE! I GOT YOU (hands wide open and ready to catch)!
(In perfect timing, Jamie O’Hara is thrown on top of Gavin Kirkland! Both men go falling down behind the announcer’s table! Gavin does not care about the pain. At least, he got that close to Jamie.)
Deadprez: GAVIN, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING? YOU DIDN’T EVEN CATCH HIM!
(Gavin Kirkland gets himself back to his feet. He dusts off his suit and repositions his headset.)
Gavin Kirkland: I cushioned his fall, Deadprez! Well, my baby boy Jamie is still down! I believe he will survive this match! It seems like the official is going to begin his count! There is some hope for Lucas Johnson and Albert Hitchman that they did enough to keep the former World Heavyweight Champion down!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!… FIVE!… SIX!…
Deadprez: Jamie O’Hara rises himself from behind our announcer’s table! I’m surprised that he’s event standing after Lucas Johnson connected with that Skull Crushing Finale and Jamie’s head colliding with that ring bell! Look closely at Jamie, Gavin! Jamie seems to be a bit out of it! I would not be shocked if he suffered some sort of concussion! It wouldn’t be good approaching Territorial Invasion! Lucas goes over to Jamie as he continues to reign his assault over The Ace! Lucas gets Jamie by his head before slamming him on top of the steel steps! Jamie staggers back in response! You can see that he is doing everything in his power to balance himself! Lucas runs towards Jamie and connects with a flying forearm! He gets Jamie and follows that up with a bulldog on top of the steel steps! Lucas is doing a pretty good job with wearing down Jamie O’Hara! That’s not normally an easy thing to do! The moment Jamie begins to make some sort of comeback, it would smell trouble for the former New Breed Champion!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas Johnson gets Jamie O’Hara’s right arm! He pulls the steel steps from the ring apron before placing Jamie’s arm in front of the ring apron! What in the world that Lucas have in mind? :lupe:
Deadprez: LUCAS JOHNSON KICKS THE STEEL STEPS IN! AT THE SAME TIME, HE CRUSHES JAMIE O’HARA’S RIGHT ARM! JAMIE IS DOING EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO NOT SHOW THE PAIN ON HIS FACE! HE DOESN’T WANT TO GIVE LUCAS A TARGET TO PURSUE IN THIS MATCH! LUCAS GETS JAMIE’S RIGHT ARM FROM THE STEEL STEPS! LUCAS GETS JAMIE BEFORE THROWING HIM RIGHT ARM FIRST AGAINST THE RING POST! JAMIE O’HARA DROPS DOWN AS HE IS CLUTCHING THAT ARM OF HIS! HE IS FRUSTRATED AT THE MOMENT! Lucas has this match in his favor at the moment! Lucas cannot drop the ball right now! It doesn’t seem like Lucas is going to let the official do his count right there! He is enjoying what he is putting Jamie through! He doesn’t see this match ending right there! Lucas goes over to get Jamie back to his feet —
Gavin Kirkland: — Jamie O’Hara connects with a forearm with his left hand! You can see that he is going to do everything in his power to avoid using the right arm of his! Lucas Johnson delivers a forearm to Jamie in return! Jamie with a forearm to Lucas! He is managing to back Lucas around ringside and up the ramp! Lucas connects with a forearm to Jamie, but Jamie does not tumble back! Jamie with a forearm to Lucas as both men continue their way around ringside and up the ramp! Jamie delivers a kick to Lucas’ stomach before connecting with a snap suplex on the ramp! Lucas is clutching his back in pain! That seems to be the opening that Jamie needed in this match!
Deadprez: Jamie O’Hara is looking underneath the ring! It’s been Jamie who introduced the first weapon in the match, which happened to be the steel chair. I wonder what Jamie is going to bring into this match now?
(A moment passes before the crowd pops as Jamie O’Hara pulls out a table!)
Gavin Kirkland: HE’S GOING TO PUT LUCAS JOHNSON THROUGH A TABLE! :damn: In the War Games Match, Jamie is going to have an unlimited amount of weapons that could be introduced into the match. A table is one of them! Lucas is still down! Albert Hitchman is trying to wake his client up, but I think the last thing that he needs to be doing is pissing off a focused Jamie O’Hara! Jamie is setting up the table! He goes over and shoos Albert out of the way and gets Lucas before taking him over to that table! Jamie places Lucas on the table! Lucas is showing some signs of being alive! JAMIE DELIVERS A COUPLE PUNCHES AS THAT SEEMS TO BE ENOUGH TO TAKE DOWN LUCAS! JAMIE GETS ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! IT SEEMS LIKE HE IS MORE THAN ANXIOUS TO END THIS MATCH AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! JAMIE FROM THE TOP ROPE! GENKAI CANNON! THE DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP ONTO LUCAS JOHNSON!
Deadprez: ALBERT HITCHMAN PULLS LUCAS JOHNSON OFF THAT TABLE AT THE LAST SECOND! JAMIE O’HARA GOES CRASHING THROUGH THE TABLE! LUCAS HAS HIS MOUTH OPEN IN SHOCK AS HE LOOKS BACK AT ALBERT HITCHMAN! THEY MAY HAVE JAMIE DOWN LONG ENOUGH TO WIN THE MATCH! THE CROWD IS IN SHOCK OF THE BUMP JAMIE TOOK! THESE ARE THE BUMPS THAT JAMIE IS GOING TO BE TAKING DURING THE WAR GAMES MATCH! HELL, SOME OF THESE BUMPS MAY BE MORE SEVERE, BUT JAMIE IS GOING TO NEED TO GET UP, IF HE STAND ANY CHANCE OF WINNING THIS MATCH! THIS COULD BE A TURNING POINT RIGHT NOW AS THE OFFICIAL BEGINS TO COUNT!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!… FIVE!… SIX!… SEVEN!…
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie O’Hara begins to rise back to his feet! Lucas Johnson and Albert Hitchman’s confident smiles just fade away! I still have no idea how Jamie still has endurance to continue this match, but I’m not going to complain about it! Right away, Lucas resume to wearing The Ace down! Lucas is dragging Jamie onto the top of the ramp! THE TWO ELITISTS ARE NEAR THE LED WALLS! LUCAS GETS JAMIE IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A SUPLEX ON THE LED WALL! THAT BUMP LOOKED PAINFUL AND YOU CAN SEE IT ON JAMIE’S FACE! LUCAS GETS JAMIE BACK UP TO HIS FEET BEFORE THROWING HIM HEAD FIRST AGAINST THE LED WALL JAMIE O’HARA DROPS BACK DOWN! LUCAS GETS JAMIE UP AGAIN AND THROWS HIS BODY AGAINST THE LED WALL!
(Lucas gestures for Albert Hitchman to get closer to him. Lucas whispers into Albert’s ear. As Lucas continues to whisper, you can see the evil grin on Albert’s face as he goes down the ramp.)
Deadprez: The Hitch’s evil grin makes me believe that something bad is going to happen! I don’t have exactly what Albert Hitchman is going to do next. But, you see Lucas Johnson getting Jamie O’Hara back to his feet! Jamie chops Lucas’ chest out of nowhere! Lucas staggers back holding his chest, but Jamie follows that up with a superkick! Lucas is taken to the ground! He falls into a seated position! Jamie is not going to stop there, Gavin! Jamie takes a couple steps back before running and attacking Lucas with a meteora! Jamie proceeds to punch the living hell out of the former New Breed Champion! JAMIE IS UP TO HIS FEET AS HE DOES THE SAME THING WITH LUCAS! THE ACE HAS LUCAS IN POSITION! DEATH, DECAY AND WINDY DAYS — SPINNING FISHERMAN’S BUSTER ON TOP OF THE RAMP! LUCAS IS IN PAIN AT THE MOMENT! I’M WONDERING HOW THE HELL HE IS ABLE TO KEEP GOING!
Gavin Kirkland: JAMIE O’HARA IS STRUCK BEHIND! IT’S ALBERT HITCHMAN! HE HAS A WRENCH IN HIS POSSESSION! HE JUST STRUCK THE FORMER WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH A WRENCH! JAMIE IS DOWN AND IT SEEMS LIKE THE OFFICIAL IS GOING TO BEGIN HIS COUNT AGAIN!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!… FIVE!… SIX!… SEVEN!… EIGH—
Deadprez: — JAMIE O’HARA IS BACK TO HIS FEET! YOU CAN SEE A BIT OF FRUSTRATION WRITTEN ON THE FACE OF THE WRESTLING MACHINE! LUCAS KICKS JAMIE IN THE STOMACH BEFORE DELIVERING AN IRISH WHIP! JAMIE COLLIDES WITH THE LED WALL!
Gavin Kirkland: LUCAS JOHNSON RUSHES TOWARDS JAMIE O’HARA! OH MY GOD!
(The sound of the LED walls being malfunction is heard. For a moment, it’s very difficult to see the two Elitists. There’s a bunch smoke around where the collision occurred. Suddenly, the smoke begins to clear out as we seeing Jamie O’Hara and Lucas Johnson in the rubble.)
Deadprez: LUCAS JOHNSON JUST SPEARED JAMIE O’HARA THROUGH THAT LED WALL! BOTH MEN SUFFERED FROM THIS COLLISION! WE JUST LEARNED AT WHAT LENGTHS LUCAS WILL GO TO KEEP JAMIE DOWN! NEITHER MEN ARE MOVING AND IT SEEMS LIKE THE OFFICIAL IS GOING TO BEGIN A COUNT? THIS HAD TO TAKE BOTH MEN DOWN. GAVIN, THERE IS NO WAY THAT NEITHER MAN WOULD BE ABLE TO GET UP FROM THAT COLLISION! THERE’S NO WAY THAT THIS MATCH CAN CONTINUE!
Referee: ONE!… TWO!… THREE!… FOUR!… FIVE!… SIX!… SEVEN!…
Gavin Kirkland: Both men are scrambling to their feet somehow! I have no idea how either of these men have the energy to continue this match!
Referee: EIGHT!… NINE!… TE—
Deadprez: — Both men make it back to their feet at the same time! This match is continuing!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas Johnson falls back down to his knees! Lucas is teetering off the stage as he tries to keep his balance! I’m just wondering Lucas can continue this match! Jamie has given him quite a beating! Jamie has made sure that Lucas regrets ever trying to call him out during their time on Dynasty! With the intense look on Jamie’s face, he is more than determined to wrap this match up! He runs towards Lucas!
Deadprez: IN EXCELSIS ONTO LUCAS JOHNSON’S SKULL! LUCAS JOHNSON FALLS OFF THE STAGE!
Gavin Kirkland: Lucas Johnson’s entire body lands onto some electrical crates at the bottom! There’s a bit of smoke coming from those crates! Lucas is down at the moment, but Jamie O’Hara is more than determined to put the final nail in the coffin! Jamie is looking to end Lucas’ aspirations of calling himself The Ace! Jamie has his feet planted nearly onto the stage! My baby is going to be getting this victory, Deadprez! It seems like Jamie is going to jump off the stage! Albert Hitchman is in the background, pleading for Jamie not to make the jump and hurt Lucas anymore than he needs to at the moment! Jamie jumps from the stage!
Deadprez: GENKAI CANNON FROM THE STAGE ONTO LUCAS JOHNSON! THAT WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING THAT I’VE EVER SEEN! :wow: JAMIE O’HARA NAILS PERFECTLY ONTO LUCAS! BOTH MEN ARE DOWN ONCE AGAIN! THE SPARKS ARE FLYING FROM THOSE CRATES! THE OFFICIAL IS GOING TO BEGIN HIS COUNT AGAIN! I’M AFRAID THAT THIS MAY HAVE BEEN THE MOVE TO TAKE BOTH MEN OUT OF THIS MATCH, GAVIN! I DON’T SEE HOW ANY OF THESE MEN CAN CONTINUE THIS MATCH AT THIS POINT!
Gavin Kirkland: JAMIE O’HARA IS WOBBLY TO HIS FEET! HE IS STILL IN THIS MATCH! HE IS DOING EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO STAY ONTO HIS FEET! HE IS WOBBLING ALL OVER THE PLACE!
Deadprez: HOW IN THE HELL IS LUCAS JOHNSON FINDING THE ENERGY TO KEEP GOING? LUCAS IS ON HIS KNEES AS HE IS SHOWING EVERY INTENTION TO CONTINUE THIS MATCH! LUCAS WANTS TO KEEP GOING, BUT I DON’T THINK HIS HEART IS LETTING HIM DO THAT!
Gavin Kirkland: JAMIE O’HARA WITH ANOTHER IN EXCELSIS ON LUCAS JOHNSON OUT OF NOWHERE! LUCAS FALLS TO HIS BACK! THE REFEREE IS STILL COUNTING!
Referee: …NINE!…TEN!… RING THE BELL!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(The crowd in the Frank Erwin Center explodes in cheers as Jamie O’Hara collapses down to his knees. Finally, he is given the time to rest as “Ultimate Battle” plays throughout the speakers once again. Jamie is trying to breathe and regain some energy.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH… JAAAAAAAMMMMMIIIIEEEEEEEEEEE OOOOOOOO’HAAAARRRRAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie did it! :blessed: :blessed: :blessed: What a match, Deadprez! The lengths that both these Elitists went to keep the other down was amazing! I was on the edge of my seat through the closing parts of the match! At some points, I thought this match was going to be a double count out! When Lucas speared Jamie through the LED wall, I thought the end was there!
Deadprez: All the credit in the world to Lucas Johnson! He brought everything to the table! He did everything to get Jamie O’Hara down! But, this is The Ace we’re talking about! It was going to be difficult to keep Jamie down!
(Albert Hitchman finally gets down to the side of the stage as he helps Lucas Johnson to his feet! Lucas is still out of it from the In Excelsis from Jamie to conclude the match! Lucas is being tended by medical personnel! Meanwhile, Jamie musters up enough energy to get back onto the ramp before collapsing there.)
Gavin Kirkland: Jamie O’Hara goes through another one of Jenny Punk’s hurdles! Is there anything that this man isn’t capable of? But, this concludes this episode of Showdown! There is so much that I want to know about! Who will be the two other members of Team Showdown? How will this Beat the Clock Challenge pan out for The Visual Prophet and Mr. DEDEDE? Will Mark Michaels ever shut the fuck up? Find out all of this and more on next week’s episode of Showdown! For now, signing off for Deadprez! I am “El Guapo” Gavin Kirkland! Goodnight from Austin!
(The last shot as of Jamie O’Hara hyping the crowd up after a successful night before it fades to black.)
