(“Misanthrope” By Local H hits as the Showdown intro begins to play syncing perfectly with the music before cutting to Carrier Dome as we come to Deadprez and Pierre Mcguire at the commentators table)

Pierre: WELCOME!! TO ANOTHER EXCITING EDITION OF EAW SHOWDOWN!! LIVE FROM THE CARRIER DOME IN SYRACUSE, NEW YORK!

Deadprez: And we have a line up tonight that is surely going to be bringing the Extreme as we have a Showdown turf war between the NEO Syndicate and the newly formed alliance of the Core Bros and Viktor Jackson! And in our Main Event we have Diamond Cage taking on Cody Marshall!

(Deadprez pauses as he’s listening to his headset)

Deadprez: Oh fuck, it sounds like there is some shit going down backstage.

Pierre: Language!

(The camera cuts to the parking lot where security guards are seen running to the scene of broken glass and a loud car alarm. TLA is shown with a lead pipe as he bashes in the windows of a pickup truck with a Confederate license plate shattering glass everywhere.)

TLA: Cody Marshall tu pinche pendejo! Dónde está Cody? Come on out motherfucker imma whip that ass!

Pierre: TLA has lost control! He’s gonna get himself arrested again!

Deadprez: Is that even Cody’s car?

(TLA takes out both of the security guards with the lead pipe as he pushes his way into the arena going down the hallways yelling for Cody Marshall to come out. TLA kicks Cody’s locker room door down but nobody is inside. TLA kicks his TV screen off the wall as he storms out of the locker room.)

TLA: Fuck off with these locker room televisions. Vatos watching them at weird angles n shit. Ain’t got time for that.

(TLA continues through the hallway as Showdown General Manager Hurricane Hawk is shown appearing behind him yelling after him to calm down. TLA ignores him as he makes his way out to ringside.)

Deadprez: Shit he’s coming out here?

(“Ambitionz az a Ridah” by Tupac blasts across the speakers to a huge pop from the Syracuse crowd as TLA comes out to the ring and demands a microphone.)

TLA: Yo yo yo we doin’ shit all business tonight. We on that warpath destroying motherfuckers who get in our way. Last week was some pinche mierda. Escucha cabrón! I ain’t leaving this ring until I get what I want! Cody Marshall robbed me and you ain’t rob from a real one and think you can avoid them consequences. I be out for blood. But first y’all gotta make some shit right for yo boi and for the millions of TLA fans. The Poon Palace in mourning cuz we got fucked outta yet another EAW Championship shot. Y’all best fix that or shit gonna get real violent with the quickness ya heard?

(Hurricane Hawk comes to the stage with security to a mixed reaction from the crowd as he holds a microphone.)

Hurricane Hawk: Listen TLA. You need to calm down. I can’t deal with this kind of shit on Showdown right now. Not after last week where I threw down the gauntlet challenging every other brand in the company to a War Games match. This isn’t the kind of thing that makes Showdown look good. I can’t just reward you with a title match while you are rampaging around the arena attacking security and destroying people’s property.

(The crowd boos loudly as TLA is shown holding the lead pipe and shrugging in the ring.)

Hurricane Hawk: That being said… I agree with you. You deserve a title rematch after what happened last week. In fact we never even really got a match last week due to the interference from Cody Marshall. You deserve a fair title match for the EAW Championship. So I’ll make you a deal. If you can calm down and leave the ring so we can continue on with the show then you can get your shot.

(TLA is shown thinking about it as he looks at the lead pipe and out at the crowd which is chanting NO! NO! NO!.)

Deadprez: Do the right thing!

Pierre: Violence is never the answer!

(The crowd cheers as TLA sets down the lead pipe and exits the ring as he begins to walk back up the ramp.)

TLA: Now that’s what I’m talking about.

(TLA shakes hands with Hurricane Hawk as suddenly “Smells Like Teen Spirit” By Nirvana hits and the crowd erupts.)

Deadprez: Here comes the EAW Champion Diamond Cage!

Diamond Cage: You know something Hawk? That deal might be good enough for TLA but it’s not good enough for me. Don’t get me wrong. I want a title match against TLA. We have some unfinished business that we never got to take care of last week. But that doesn’t solve the other problem that both of us share. That problem being Cody Marshall. I plan on taking care of him tonight but how is that going to make sure he doesn’t interfere in our next title match? Or the one after that? It’s clear that TLA and Cody Marshall’s beef is going to spill into any title match that we have so we might as well just include the both of them. I’m a fighting champion. So I’ll take both of them on!

(The crowd cheers as TLA and Hurricane Hawk are shown nodding in approval and Hawk shakes Cage’s hand.)

Deadprez: It looks like we have a title match!

Pierre: A three way match for the EAW Championship! Diamond Cage defending against both TLA and Cody Marshall! That should be one hell of a match!

(The camera cuts to a commercial for “The Do’s and Dont’s of EAW” on the EAW Network. Join us as members of the EAW board lecture you on morality on this new weekly program!)

(Camera opens to see Chris Mainstream already in the ring)

Fitzpatrick: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

(“Pecypc” hits as Tayo makes his entrance)

Fitzpatrick: Introducing first, making his way to the ring from the Pits of Persia, weighing in at 298 pounds… TTAAAAAYYYYYOOOOO!!!!!!

Fitzpatrick: And his opponent, already in the ring from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 215 pounds… CHHHRRRRIIIISSSSS MMMMMAAAAIIINNNSSSTTRREEEAAMMMM!!!!

Pierre: Well this is an interesting matchup to say the least. Tayo has every physical advantage he could want.

Deadprez: Did you just assume Tayo’s true gender?

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Deadprez: The two head towards each other in the center of the ring… THRUST FORCE KNEE FROM TAYO! Cover!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Fitzpatrick: Here is your winner by pinfall… TTAYYYYOOOOOOO!!!

Pierre: And just like that, Tayo picks up the victory!

Deadprez: What a specimen!

(Commercial for the DEDEDE and Captain Charisma Show That Totally Reeks of Mediocrity, only on the EAW Network!)

(Camera pans backstage showing Terry Chambers in the office of Showdown General Manager Hurricane Hawk)

Terry: Listen, I’ve heard all the rumors of this big Showdown supershow you are planning and what better name to have on the marquee than “Terry Chambers Vs the EAW Champion” as the main event of that show?

Hawk: You know the drill, championship matches are earned Terry.

Terry: Then just tell me, who is it that there is left to beat on Showdown? Tell me now because I don’t care who I have to fight, I want the big prize and It’s the EAW Championship.

Hawk: You know, I’ve got bigger things on my mind like assembling a team for this war that Showdown is soon going to be apart of, and with that war and assembling our part of the card for this event, I need you to know that my time is a bit occupied but if you want a shot for the EAW Championship it’s very simple Terry.

Terry: Okay?

Hawk: You have to impress me, over the next few weeks if you can do something, show me something or at least beat someone of any kind of importance, then maybe, just maybe when the time comes you’ll get a shot at the EAW Championship

Terry: That’s fine by me, that’s all I wanted.

(Terry smirks at Hawk before he walks away as Camera pans back to the ring)

(DING! DING! DING!)

( “Revolution” by Pennywise hits as Drake King comes out to the fans cheering)

Aaron Fitzpatrick: THE FOLLOWING IS A TRIPLE THREAT MATCH SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL!! INTRODUCING FIRST..FROM BROOKLYN, NEW YORK…WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY POUNDS….DDRRRAAAKKEEEE KIIINNGGG!!!!!

Pierre: This guy is coming off a big win last week against a fellow competitor in this match and you just know he wants more!

(Drake steps through the ropes and warms up in a corner as his theme fades and “Tony’s Theme” blares the speakers as Spike Mercury walks down to the ring)

Aaron Ftzpatrick: MAKING HIS WAY TO THE RING….FROM PONTE VEDRA, FLORIDA…WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE POUNDS…..SSSSPPPPIIKKKEEEEE MMERRRRCCCURRYYYY!!!!

Deadprez: Here is the man who was on the losing end to Drake King last week. He looks to avenge that loss last week. He doesn’t look in the happiest of moods.

(Spike Mercury steps over the top rope as his theme dies down and “Back from the Dead” by Skillet his and Eric Crane comes out to a chorus of boos)

Aaron Fitzpatrick: AND THEIR OPPONENT….FROM LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK….WEIGHING IN AT TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTEEN POUNDS…..EERRICCC CRRANNNEE!!!!!

Deadprez: Here is another guy coming in with some momentum who made his debut last week and got the victory. Let’s see if he can pick his spot tonight and keep his role going.

(Eric rolls in the ring as his theme song fades and all three men are ready to go)

DING! DING! DING!

Pierre: AND WE ARE OFF!

Deadprez: All three are waiting for someone to make the first move here. Spike has the weight advantage over the both of them.

(Spike Mercury points at Drake)

Deadprez: AND WOAH ERIC BEHIND CHOP BLOCKS THE BACK OF SPIKE’S KNEE! And as Spike is on one knee Eric spikes Mercury’s head straight into the mat with a vicious DDT! Spike rolls out of the ring and Eric trying to catch him and WOAH DRAKE WITH THE ROLLUP!!

ONE…
TWO…

Pierre: Eric gets out of it! Both men rise up to their feet and Eric being just a tad quicker charges at Drake and Drake with a drop toe hold and Eric crashes right into the middle rope! Drake now places his knee on the back of Eric’s head! The referee beginning his five count and Drake finally lets go at four and Drake turns around and walks right into a big boot from Spike! Spike picks up Drake and runs and tosses Drake to the outside! Spike now turns his attention to Eric trying to pull himself up with the ropes and Spike grabs Eric’s shoulder but Eric with a right elbow to the face of Spike and Eric gets some separation. Eric runs to Spike but Spike catches him! Spike walking around carrying Eric…and a VICIOUS sidewalk slam!

Deadprez: Spike seems to be proud of himself, he still has to cover him. It seems Spike knows that will not finish the job as he lifts up Eric and places him in between his legs looking like he’s setting up for Mercury’s Meltdown…..YES! He’s got Eric in the crucifix position! AND OH NO!! Drake from behind pulls down Eric and Spike turns around confused and Drake now with a front dropkick to Spike’s knees and Spike drops right to his knees and OH MY GOD A SUPERKICK FROM DRAKE!! THE COVER!!

ONE…

Pierre: SPIKE GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Eric Crane is already back to his feet and bends Drake back and CONNECTS WITH CROSS RHODES!!!! Eric with the cover!!

ONE…
TWO…
THREE…

Deadprez: NO!!! Eric looks shocked and doesn’t know what to do. Eric now looks at this picture in front of him with both Spike and Drake down and Eric is going up high! He looks to be going for a moonsault on Spike here and OH NO DRAKE THROWS HIMSELF ON THE TOP ROPE CAUSING ERIC TO LOSE HIS BALANCE! Spike slowly getting back to his feet and Drake takes a second to recouperate and Drake turns around and WOAH OH MY GOD MACHISMO SHOT CONNECTS FROM SPIKE!!! IT’S OVER!!

(Spike gets to the cover a second and a half too late)

DING! DING! DING!

Aaron Fitzpatrick: HERE IS YOUR WINNER….DDDRRAKKKEE KIIINNGGG!!!!

PierreL DAMN SPIKE WAS JUST TOO LATE! DRAKE KING PICKS UP THE VICTORY! WHAT A MATCH BETWEEN THESE THREE!

(Drake King has his hand raised and walks to the back celebrating as Eric and Spike look on disappointed)

(Hurricane Hawk is seen in his office listening to struggling rappers on soundcloud singing along with headphones in his ear)

Hawk: :singing: ♫You’re so devious, so mischievous, and every time I see you around I see your greediness♫

♫Yea I know I got played like that but then you tried to get my bro and got played right b-

(Hawk suddenly stops and takes his headphones off quickly as someone steps into his office.)

????: You called?

Hawk: Just the man I was looking for! Malcolm Jones!

(Malcolm Jones appears on the frame to loud boos)

Malcolm: Ahhh, I can hear the dickeaters in the crowd from all the way in this office. Anyways whats good?

Hawk: I just wanted to tell you that your win over HBB last week was certainly an impressive one and not something to be overlooked ESPECIALLY on the heels of him defeating Ahren for the Interwire Championship a week prior.

Malcolm: I mean, thanks but it’s what I do.

Hawk: Oh trust me I know, and that’s why I called you here. I feel like a talent of your caliber has been quite underutilized on this brand and you are someone who I can see carrying this brand as a main player all throughout season 12. Ya know?

Malcolm: Well obviously I’m the best thing going in this brand but, I don’t see how I’m being underutilized when I got this right here. (Malcolm pats the Unified Tag Team Championship on his shoulder)

Hawk: Yes, but I feel like you could be doing even more. Obviously Drillmatic is a force to be reckoned with and you proved that against The Dragon Slayers but let’s be honest here, you’re sharing the spotlight with someone who’s just as big of a star as you and letting her get all of the credit.

Malcolm: That’s my wifey you talking about, I’d use my words carefully if I were you. I ain’t “letting” anything happen, it’s just naturally happening because my partner happens to be the best thing going on in not just Empire, but EAW as a whole. I’ve said it time and time again, we forces by ourselves but when we get together it’s a whole different monster. Clearly we have proven we can hold our own on the solo tip as indicated by my win last week and her being in the Empress of Elite finals. But right now for me my number one priority is the love of my life, Astraea Jordan, and the Tag Team Championships.

Hawk: I respect that, and I’d like to talk to you about both of those things. Your solo aspirations and your tag team aspirations. Let’s start with tag team.

Malcolm: Deadass though. Like, Midsummer Massacre was cool and all but Astraea and I are already looking for our next challengers to be honest. We would hold another open challenge but last time we did that we damn near had to beg somebody to come out so that prolly won’t work. We wanna be fighting champions and we wanna take on any and everybody we possibly can, shit it don’t even gotta be the typical tag team competitors. It can be anybody from any brand, any stature, especially other main eventers.

Hawk: I agree, you guys deserve worthy opponents and I will make sure that you get them. With Territorial Invasion coming up it opens up the door for a lot of cross-brand and tag team opportunities. I’ll definitely keep you posted and you can do the same if you happen to come across somebody. As far as your solo endeavors go, I believe your win over HBB last week puts you in that discussion for a shot at the Interwire Championship.

Malcolm: I can’t say I disagree.

Hawk: It’s just a matter of when.

Malcolm: Well I mean, HBB’s got his little thing going on with Ahren so I’ll let them have their fun. Once that’s done you already know who got next, put me in coach.

Hawk: You got it.

Malcolm: It’s only right. Astraea’s about to be a double champion when she secures the EOE bag and wins the Women’s World Championship and I’ll be one as well.

Hawk: That’s the spirit.

(Malcolm nods and walks off as the camera fades to the ring)

(“Blackout” by Breathe Carolina blasts over the speakers as Ahren Fournier steps out onto stage to deafening boos from the crowd.)

Aaron Fitzpatrick: Ladies and gentlemen at this time please welcome the former EAW Interwire Champion… AHRRRRRRRRRREN FOURNIER!!!

(Ahren Fournier makes his way down to the ring as he holds his fist high in the air for the world to see.)

Deadprez: Here comes Ahren Fournier making his way out to the ring with an expression on his face that’s as bold and as brash as ever. Despite losing that Interwire Championship at Midsummer Massacre he hasn’t lost a bit of confidence nor has he let that knock him off of his game. What could he possibly have in store tonight?

Pierre: I don’t know but Ahren was the EAW Interwire Champion for a long time. From what I’ve heard Ahren is on the hunt to get his title back, perhaps that starts here tonight.

(Ahren takes a microphone as he waits for the crowd to calm down so he can begin speaking.)

Ahren: You should all be struck silent because you are in the presence of the GOAT Champion!

(The crowd only boos louder.)

Ahren: But that is why I am the GOAT and you all are not. Because I always do what I SHOULD do, because I am always able to do it. Whenever I step into this ring I SHOULD win the match, and I do. Whenever I step into this ring I SHOULD retain my title and I do. Aside from flukes they don’t count when you are the GOAT. Nobody remembers that shit. There is literally nobody left who can claim GOAT status the way that I can. They are all jealous because I have done what they can’t. Even when I don’t have a title. Not only that but I am a very humble man.

Pierre: Orly?

Ahren: See I acknowledge that there are other GOATs out there. Or at least there were. At present there can only be one and you are looking at him! But before me, there were others. Now they are no longer WOAT, or GOAT, they are just average and nobody really remembers who the average people are. Like all of you people for example.

(The crowd boos)

Ahren: As the GOAT Champion I need a GOAT championship. The title that I made GOAT. But since I am the GOAT as I have previously explained with complete scientific accuracy using the scientific laws of the GOATiverse, I can only find an Old GOAT to face me. So I would like to call out the Old GOAT right now and challenge his bitch ass for the EAW Interwire Championship!

Deadprez: Oh shit is he going to come out?

Pierre: I can’t imagine him tolerating this kind of ranting from a man who isn’t even the champion anymore!

Ahren: Oh sorry I guess I have to show some respect to my elders. Ladies and grandparents… please welcome… THE HEARRRRRRRT BREAK BOYYYY!!!!!! Well he’s not really so much of a boy anymore but… ye get that old ass out here boi!

(“Ice Tray” by Quavo hits to a huge pop from the crowd as they await the arrival of the EAW Interwire Champion!)

Ahren: Come on everybody chant his name!

Crowd: HBB! HBB! HBB!

(Suddenly an old man wearing a “Silent Assassin” t-shirt makes his way down to the ring on a wheelchair as the wheelchair tips over on the way down the ramp forcing security to help him back up as he wheels down to ringside.)

Deadprez: BAH GAWD PIERRE! THE CHAMP IS HERE! THE HALL OF FAME LEGEND! LOOKING IN HIS PRIME!

Pierre: What the hell are you talking about? He has no hair and I think his dentures fell out when his wheelchair tipped over. Who the hell is this?

(Ahren Fournier is shown laughing in the ring as the crowd boos.)

Ahren: Oh shit my bad. You know EAW really isn’t a very progressive company. I mean this ring isn’t even handicap accessible! How is The Heart Break Boy supposed to get into the ring to face the GOAT?

(Ringside officials are shown taking ropes off the ring and setting up a ramp outside the ring so “HBB” can bring his wheelchair into the ring.)

Ahren: Wow it’s a huge honor to be in the same ring with a legend of our sport! This man was facing Abraham Lincoln back in his day and I heard he gave the ex-President a real ass whipping! Such a huge honor sir!

(A ringside official hands the wheelchaired man a microphone.)

“HBB”: NOW YOU LISTEN HERE YOUNG MAN! BACK IN MY DAY WE ADDRESSED ME AS MISTER HBB! WHERE THE HELL DID THAT NICE NURSE FROM THE HOME GO? I’M HARD AS WOOD AND I THINK I JUST DROPPED A LOG!

Ahren: Oh shit! Nobody needs to know about that HBB. Come on you used to be an unstoppable GOAT! Now look at you! What an oldhead… You ain’t shit!

“HBB”: YOU DAMN KIDS WITH YOUR RAP MUSIC AND LONG HAIR! YOU KNOW I DON’T RECOGNIZE YOU DIRTY YANKS FROM RHODE ISLAND AS REAL AMERICANS! SHAVE THAT OFF AND GET THE HELL OUTTA MY COUNTRY! I’LL SAVE YOUR ASS LIKE I DID BACK IN NAM!

Ahren: Woah that’s some pretty hostile talk from you HBB. It’s really sad to see what you have turned into.

“HBB”: YEAH AND IT’S REALLY SAD I OUTLIVED ALL FIFTY OF MY GRANDCHILDREN!

Ahren: I’m real sorry to hear that man. I suppose they all killed themselves because their grandpa was such an embarrassment compared to the TRUE GOAT CHAMPION!

“HBB”: WELL THAT AND THE DRUGS! I LOVE ME SOME METH! GOT ANY METH FOR DADDY?

Ahren: What happened to you HBB? You really are the OLD GOAT, cuz you sure as hell aren’t GOAT anymore!

“HBB”: GIVE ME MY FUCKING METH YOU PIECE OF SHIT!!!

(The old man knocks the microphone out of Ahren Fournier’s hand as he climbs out of his wheelchair and spits in his face! The old man clutches his chest and begins breathing heavily as he sits back down in the chair and begins drooling.)

Deadprez: Can you believe the audacity of HBB like that? Did you know he was on meth Pierre?

Pierre: Are you really falling for this shit…

Deadprez: What do you mean? I’m just as disappointed by HBB’s behavior tonight. Very disrespectful to his status as a Hall of Famer! I guess you should never meet your heroes…

(Ahren Fournier looks pissed off as he picks his microphone back up.)

Ahren: So… it has come down to this… You know what these people need a real hero. Someone who they can actually look up to! You think you are the Interwire Champion? I am laying down the challenge for a title match at Territorial Invasion… Do you accept?

“HBB”: UUUUGHHHH GIVE IT TO ME BABY! HARDER! I WANT IT! DADDY NEEDS IT!

Ahren: There you have it! Ahren Fournier vs. The Heart Break Boy for the EAW Interwire Championship at Territorial Invasion! The match is on! I will be rescuing the championship from this sad… pathetic… dirty… washed up… piece of…

(Suddenly the old man falls over in his wheelchair landing on Ahren’s foot as he jumps back in the ring.)

Ahren: You know what… I can’t wait! I’m going to give you all a preview of what’s to come!

Pierre: Oh god… what the hell is he doing?

(Ahren grabs the wheelchair as he tosses it out of the ring and drags the old man up to his feet.)

Deadprez: The Hall of Fame Heart Break Boy showing a lot of fight here tonight!

(Ahren Fournier grabs the man around the waist as he tosses him over him with a Belly to Belly Suplex!)

Pierre: Somebody stop this! Ahren Fournier now mounting this poor son of a bitch as he unloads with a series of punches to the face! I can’t watch! This is someone’s grandfather!

Deadprez: Didn’t you hear Pierre? They are all dead!

(Ahren drags the old man back up but he is unconscious and he can’t get him to stand! Ahren leans him up against the ropes as he runs off the ropes on the other side…)

Deadprez: PROTECT YA NECK CONNECTS! A CLOTHESLINE SENDING HBB OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Damn if Ahren hits that at TI we could have a new champion!

Pierre: This is one of the most disgusting things I have ever seen in an EAW ring!

Deadprez: I agree. I expected a lot more out of a Hall of Famer…

(Ahren Fournier’s music hits as he walks backstage smiling and medical staff rush out to put “HBB” on a stretcher as the crowd is shown rioting and calling Ahren an asshole.)

Pierre: Not him you dumbass. Ahren Fournier showing just what kind of man he is! He doesn’t deserve a title match! He deserves a suspension!

Nobi vs. Ahren – TBP

(Commercial Break — Tickets for Road To Redemption available Next Friday!)

(Camera opens to show a direct shot of the commentary team, Pierre McGuire and Deadprez talking directly to the camera)

Pierre: Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve recently learned of an attack earlier tonight on The Revenant, Michael Bishop. This footage was found on security cameras here at the arena.

Deadprez: We do remind you that viewer discretion is advised.

(Camera fades out and reopens to show security camera footage of The Revenant walking along the backstage corridors, he looks to be warming up for the night.)

(Suddenly from behind a corner comes Marco Core who hits Rev in the back with a golf club. Rico Core then joins from around the corner and stomps into the head of Rev while Marco continues to swing the golf club into Rev’s body)

(Suddenly Viktor Jackson comes out of a doorway to the side and sees the attack. The cores wave him over and they all grab Rev and pull him up. Viktor points at a nearby window and the three run Rev headfirst through the glass)

(Marco then take a big swing with the golf club right into the side of Rev’s shin bone as he hangs unconscious in the window. The Cores and Viktor then run off as we see Shane Gates and Damon Diesel rush in to find Rev with half his body still through the window, now gushing blood from his face)

(Camera reopens on Deadprez and Pierre)

Deadprez: Michael Bishop was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for medical evaluation.

Pierre: But we have been informed that the NEO Syndicate still plans to fight tonight in hopes to avenge their fallen brother. And now we are back to the action.

(We see Aaron Fitzpatrick in the ring)

Fitzpatrick: The following contest is a tornado tag extreme rules match! And it is scheduled for one fall!

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

(“This Fire Burns” by Killswitch Engage hits as Damon Diesel and Shane Gates make their entrance. Both storm to the ring looking ready for war)

Fitzpatrick: Introducing first, making their way to the ring, Shane Gates and Damon Diesel… THE NEEEEOOOOO SSSYYYYNNNDDDIIICCCAAAA—

(Diesel grabs the microphone away from Fitzpatrick)

Diesel: GET YOUR ASSES OUT HERE!

(Diesel hands the microphone back to Fitzpatrick)

Deadprez: Diesel is done with formalities. He wants a fight.

(“Team Extreme” by Yung Flex hits and Viktor Jackson comes out with his arm around Alicia Devine and shortly followed by the Core Brothers, Marco has his golf club held over his shoulder)

Fitzpatrick: And their opponents, making their way to the ring accompanied by Alicia Dev—

Pierre: Diesel and Gates just rushed out of the ring and up the ramp and are met by the Cores. Rico hits Diesel with a drop kick and Marco swings his golf club into the gut of Gates!

Deadprez: Looks like Viktor is ushering Alicia back behind the curtain telling her to stay where it’s safe.

Pierre: But now Diesel is up and BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX PLANTS RICO ON THE UNFORGIVING RAMP! Here comes Marco with the golf club! But Diesel deflects the shot and hits a hard right to Marcos jaw! And now Gates is back up! Gutwrench slam puts Marco down! Now the two turn their eyes to Viktor! This is madness!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Deadprez: At least now it’s official madness! Diesel rushes Viktor but Vik grabs him by the head and throws him into the back wall! But Gates with a clubbing forearm to the back of Vik’s head! And now Gates is walking Vik down the ramp and to the ring! But Rico comes from behind with a chop block to Shane’s knee! And here comes Marco as well! Now the Core Brothers are walking Shane to the ring with Viktor slowly coming behind! They roll him in and Marco and Viktor begin the assault while Rico grabs a chair from under the ring! Now Rico gets in with the chair while Viktor is knelt over Shane’s head while punching into his skull and Marco is stomping into his ribs! Now Rico has the chair up to strike!

Pierre: GOLF CLUB TO THE SPINE OF RICO FROM DAMON DIESEL! And now a shot into the ribs of Viktor Jackson! Marco drops and rolls out of the ring! Damon stands over his partner, standing guard. Pointing Marco’s golf club at anyone who moves towards the ring. Vik and the Cores exchange glances on the outside… NOW ALL THREE RUSH THE RING AT ONCE! DIESEL CONNECTS THE GOLF CLUB TO THE JAW OF MARCO! AND MARCO I KNOCKED OUT! He falls backwards and into the lower turnbuckle in the corner! His eyes look rolled back in his head! But now here’s Vik and Rico! Vik grabs Damon from behind while Rico grabs the club and tosses it out of the ring! Vik hits a big German suplex while Rico checks on his brother! Damon rolls back the outside, shaking off cobwebs! SHANE GATES WITH A ROLL UP FROM BEHIND! RICO DOESNT SEE!

ONE!

TWO!

Kickout by Viktor! Vik backs into a corner and yells at Rico to pay attention! He meets Shane in the middle of the ring but BIG BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX SENDS VIK BACK FIRST INTO THE STEEL CHAIR THAT RICO BROUGHT IN! Now here comes Rico! But Shane grabs him and throws him shoulder first into the steel post of the turnbuckle! Rico falls over the rope and sit on the apron clutching his shoulder!

Deadprez: Look at Diesel! He pulled out a table and set it up on the outside! And now he’s pulling out another! He’s got that set up! And… he’s looking for a third table! One for each opponent! He wants to punish these three! He can’t find a table on this side but he does see Rico right there! He pushes a table over and hops on the apron! Grabbing Rico by the skull! Pulls him up! DRAGON SUPLEX FROM THE APRON TO THE FLOOR AND THROUGH A TABLE!!!! Rico is down and I don’t know if he’s getting up! Now Diesel goes to the other side and now he’s found his third table! One opponent down! Two to go!

Pierre: Meanwhile, Shane now has Viktor square in a Muta Lock! Vik is screaming in pain! But now Marco has finally woken up and stomps Gates down, breaking the hold! He pulls Vik up! They both look at Shane and grab him! Lifting him up! DOUBLE POWERBOMB! And Marco makes the cover!

ONE!

TWO!

T—

Kickout by Gates! Not gonna be enough when he and his partner are this hell bent on revenge! Now Vik pulls Gates up and grabs his arms from behind! Marco is pummeling into Shane’s gut and face! But here’s Diesel from behind! STEEL CHAIR TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD OF VIK! And now Shane hits a big right to Marco’s temple!

Deadprez: But now look… Diesel has something—DIESEL HAS BRASS KNUCKLES! Diesel drops down on top of Vik and looks to end him right here! Vik covers his head! But a big shot to the gut with the brass knuckles forces him to open his guard! Now Diesel drops a shot at Vik’s face! But Vik catches the lunch by the wrist and deflects! He wraps Diesels are and tries lock in some kind of armbar! Anything to avoid those brass knuckles! And Marco and Shane are trading on the other side of the ring! Big shots flying everywhere! Now Here comes Rico to aid his brother! Finally back up from that table! And now the two are taking it to Shane! Vik finally gets his feet into Diesels gut and shoves him off! Vik rolls to the outside looking for safety!

Pierre: Now Diesel looks and sees his partner getting beaten! Diesel charges and swing for Rico! But Rico ducks! THE BRASS KNUCKLES JUST CONNECTED WITH MARCO’S FACE! That’s it! He’s gotta be done! He’s busted open and Shane kicks Rico out of the ring and Diesel pins Marco!

ONE!

TWO!

THREE—

Rico grabs Diesels boot and pulls him off! Big right hand from Rico and Diesel finally drops the brass knuckles as he falls to the floor! But Gates resumes the pin on Marco!

ONE!

TWO!

But Rico slides in and breaks it up! He drops a forearm into Shane’s head and drags his brother over, placing him in the corner. Back on the outside, Vik looks to take it to the knuckle-less Diesel!

Pierre: SUICIDE DIVE FROM GATES! He just took Rico out and now is raining shots down on him! What is Diesel doing? He’s running up the ramp!

Pierre: ALICIA DEVINE IS IN THE RING AND HAS RICO’S STEEL CHAIR! The syndicate both turn around! STEEL CHAIR TO THE SKULL OF DAMON DIESEL! Vik scoops Shane from behind!
