(EAW Video Plays…)
(Scene fades into a subway riding the tracks to Yokohama, Japan at night time. The lights of Japan surrounding around the city, all colorful and pretty.)
Narrator: Everything has a start…
(Scene transitions to the Specialists Rampage with Chelsea Crowe superkicking Azumi Goto, causing her to fall to the floor and becoming the new Specialists Champion.)
SG1: CHELSEA SMILE! CHELSEA SMILE! Chelsea hits the knee drop face buster to stun Azumi! LITTLE DEATH! THE FEIGN SUPERKICK AND AZUMI GOTO HAS FALLEN! SHE’S BEEN KNOCKED OUT OF THE RING! WE HAVE A NEW SPECIALIST CHAMPION!
(Chelsea falls down exhausted after her battle with Azumi as she holds the Specialists Championship up in the air.)
(Soon after, the scene transitions to Stephanie Matsuda cashing in her Iconic Cup during the Final Submission Match for the vacant Women’s World Championship.)
SG1: APRIL’S STRUCK OVER THE HEAD! SOMEONE IN A HOOD JUST HIT APRIL OVER THE HEAD WITH A FOREIGN OBJECT! Huh!?
Gia: IT’S THE ICONIC CUP TROPHY! THE ATTACKER PULLS BACK THE HOOD! IT’S STEPHANIE “CLOUD” MATSUDA! SHE’S HOLDING THE TROPHY! APRIL IS UNCONSCIOUS! MONICA VAUGHAN ARRIVES AND TAKES THE TROPHY! SHE’S GIVING IT TO JESSE CARLTON! CLOUD IS CASHING IN! I REPEAT CLOUD IS CASHING IN! JESSE CARLTON HAS TURNED TO THE OFFICIALS RINGSIDE, RAISING THE TROPHY!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jasmine Peyton: The following match is now a TRIPLE THREAT FINAL SUBMISSION MATCH!
SG1:BLASIAN SUNRISE! APRIL HAS NO WAY TO DEFEND HERSELF, BUT A SUBMISSION VICTORY WITH HER MODIFIED TEQUILA SUNRISE IS THE ONLY WAY CLOUD WILL BE ABLE TO WIN! THE REF CHECKS ON APRIL! SONG IS OUT! SHE’S PASSED OUT FROM THE TROPHY SHOT! SHE’S NOT FIGHTING THE SUBMISSION! THE REF CALLS FOR THE BELL! WE HAVE OURSELVES A NEW WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION!!!!!
(Stephanie is showing celebrating with the Women’s World Championship in the ring.)
Narrator: And, everything comes to an end…
(Scene goes to Zakkii in the middle of the ring on an episode of Empire before transitioning to a montage of Zakkii’s highs and lows in her EAW career.)
Zakkii:With a new version of me, it came with a new mindset. This was why I didn’t want to be part of the Specialists Rampage. I wasn’t motivated. I was not going to try my best if I wasn’t motivated. Like I said last week, I reflected on a lot of things. My announcement is what you all wanted for me and here is my announcement:
(Scene transitions back to Zakkii in the middle of the ring with somber look on her face.)
Zakkii: At Pain for Pride 11, I am retiring from professional wrestling.
Narrator: And well, there’s things in between…
(Scene transitions to a series of articles that announce the news of EAW buying REVOLT and combining the two companies together. Especially, the news of the Freeweights being part of the Empire brand.)
Gia Cervantes: Thanks to the merge between REVOLT Pro Combat and Elite Answers Wrestling, we get the Freeweight Division on Empire. There is no telling what kind of impact they can make.
(Transitions to Freeweights like Stella Star in the ring with Zakkii; Sienna Jade getting a victory over Consuela Rose Ava; Astraea Jordan returning with her three titles from Mexico all around her; Payton Darkstar in the ring fighting Chelsea Crowe for the Specialists Championship.)
(Scene transitions to Flannery McCoy announcing the Empire Tag Team Championships as the four teams in the Four Corners Match to crown the first ever Empire Tag Team Champions — Crowe’s Nest, Jaded Hearts, The Goto Sisters and Consuela Rose Ava and Andrea Valentine.)
Narrator: But, there is always someone that is willing to ruin things for the others…
(Scene pans to Revy with a bullrope over her shoulders with Flannery McCoy.)
Revy: Well, I want to talk to you about the stipulation I picked for Terminus.
(Flannery looks at the bullrope)
Flannery: Go on…
(Revy pats the bullrope)
Revy: A bullrope match.
Revy: I want to drag Chelsea’s spoiled ass all across this ring with this very bullrope I’m holding.
(Scene fades into Madison Kaline in the ring.)
Madison Kaline: As my first decree as Empress of Elite, I am going to go back to the prize I was promised when I won the damn tournament–a shot at the Women’s World Championship. I had my intentions of cashing in on the opportunity at King of Elite, but I am going to make it clear that I want to cash in my opportunity at Stephanie Matsuda. I know, you’re back there, Stephanie and I want my answer as soon as possible.
(Scene transitions to Stephanie Matsuda in the ring with Carlos Rosso and The Wild Boyz.)
Stephanie Matsuda: Now, there’s been a new development – a certain blast from the past has returned to cash in a crown I didn’t even know she still had. Didn’t like Laura Winslow beat her up and take it from her? (shrugs) Well, Flannery says she’s due for a title match, so YES Madison Kaline; I’ll fight you at the upcoming super show. Your non-existent crown versus my title.
(Stella Star interrupting Zakkii in the ring.)
Stella Star: Who cares, Zakkii? No ones cares about your retirement. No one cares about who you are facing at Pain for Pride. No one cares about you at all. You’re nothing, but a failure. You are also a quitter and this business wasn’t built on quitters. It was built on winners who stick around and fight for what they want.
(Scene transitions to the Press Conference for the Freeweight Championship with Astraea Jordan, Payton Darkstar and Sienna Jade.)
Astraea Jordan: …I totally think it is important to have confidence to do whatever you want in the ring, but you? It’s not confidence, Sienna. It’s straight up delusion and of course, you’re not going to acknowledge it because you live in your little world, where everything is about you. Everything is alright, but the fact that after Terminus, you will not be Freeweight Champion and the whole damn world will eventually realize that #AstraeaBetter
Sienna Jade (laughs before speaking): Oh Astraea! You think that you’re so cute with your little hashtags, but no one cares about you. No one in this goddamn brand cares about you. You’re only a flavor of the month. I wouldn’t be shocked that after Terminus, people stop giving a damn about you if they haven’t already.
Payton Darkstar (quietly, but then goes to her normal voice): Thank you. Look, I wanna give out my two sense. Sienna, this is the match in which you should be focusing on the most. The Tag Team Championship Match? You got yourself and Kassidy to help strategize and have each other’s backs..
(Clips of Jaded Hearts causing havoc on REVOLT and Empire.)
Payton Darkstar: This Freeweight bout? Well, you’re all on your own and you’re going to have nowhere to hide. No Kassidy, no words. Nothing. You are going to be in the front, exposed and everything that you do will be televised to a bigger audience.
Payton Darkstar: Astraea, there is no doubt that that our Chairman, Mr. Ryan Adams saw something in you from day one…
(Shows clips of Astraea in her matches and highlighting her strength and talent.)
Payton Darkstar: You were part of the Gawd Complex. You were basically chosen to be the next face in EAW. The question everyone has: have you learned from King of Elite?
(Showing clips from Astraea’s performance at King of Elite and her loss to Aria Jaxon.)
Payton Darkstar: Have you learned from your past failures to prepare for Terminus?
(Scene transitions to the Press Conference for the Four Corners Match to crown the Empire Tag Team Championship.)
April Song: I don’t see this match as becoming the first ever Empire Tag Team Champions and adding more gold into The Crowe’s Nest, but I see this as a chance to get back at Stephanie by taking out her fellow JET buddies. I advise the two of you if you’re in the ring with me to JUST. TAP. OUT.
Azumi Goto: Even if you ask nicely, don’t think Sakuya and I are willing to tap out to someone who’s body gave up at the Grand Rampage. Sure, you have the mentality that never gives up, but when your body decides to wear down, that becomes your biggest issue. You think that I am so willing to throw away this opportunity to be champion? The first ever Empire Tag Team Champions? Then, you’re insane!
Sakuya Goto: Nothing you say to us is going to keep this pirate down! If you think we are going to be so easy to tap out, then you are certainly wrong! If there is something me and Azumi have in common than having the same mother, it is our will and determination to never give up! We’re not, April who is going to beg for someone to tap out. We aren’t going to have a pack mentality like The Crowe’s Nest and we aren’t some random dream team to make the EAW fans happy. We are The Goto Sisters and at Terminus, we are going to walk out as the first ever Empire Tag Team Champions!
Jael Arcana-Rosario: You see, Sienna and Kassidy, I think the two of you are walking into uncharted territory–The Crowe’s Nest territory. You two think that you can waltz in from some second rate company and think that you can take away opportunities that April and I have been busting our asses for? No, that is where we have a problem ladies. You think you may be cute with your little comments, but it only makes us want to beat the hell out of the two of you like we did Aria Jaxon!
Sienna Jade: I ran that bitch out of REVOLT, you don’t scare me.
Kassidy Heart: Sienna made getting rid of Aria Jaxon cooler before and your Coven wannabe asses did. So, shut up.
Andrea Valentine: Well, I don’t think people have much expectations for us. We aren’t stablemates, we aren’t sisters and we aren’t the best of friends. We are two individuals, who love what we do. We love performing out in the ring and giving everything we have to this sport. People are expecting this team to fall apart because we don’t have the same chemistry as these other teams do, but in a way, I think it has propelled us both to work on our chemistry, going out there and being the best damn superteam on Empire.
Narrator: There’s also those who are constantly fighting for survival…
(Meanwhile, it’s nighttime in Japan with Zakkii in Yokohama Chinatown giving a mini concert in the middle of the streets of Yokohama. The camera goes to Stella Star shopping in the Yokohama Landmark Tower. As Stella is looking at window displays, she suddenly finds herself watching Zakkii through a television as she gets angry.)
(Then it transitions to Daisy Thrash in the Nogeyama Zoo as she is touching a panda bear. She blinks and she realizes that she is surrounded by “Rad” Riley McRay, Layla Lockhart, Raven Roberts, Remi Skyfire and Kianna Carter in the dark streets of Japan, almost like she is going to be attacked.)
Narrator: But no matter what….
(Recaps all the matches, feuds and activities the Empire roster is doing in Japan.)
Narrator: All roads lead to their Terminus…
(The subway stops as the camera moves to a spot with the Terminus logo with an arrow pointing right and it says, Pain for Pride Festival.)
Narrator: …AND NOW, ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING AND EMPIRE PRESENT: TERMINUS!!!
(The interior of the Yokohama Arena is shown as a pyro display goes off! “Blues of Shichiten Battou” by The Pinballs play as the camera moves throughout the excited crowd)
SG1: WELCOME TO EMPIRE: TERMINUS! I AM YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD VIXEN SG1 AND THIS IS MY PARTNER GIA CERVANTES!
Gia: Thank you SG! We have an exciting night planned for you! Four championships are on the line here in Yokohama, including the EAW EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP!
SG1: Yes, tonight we will crown our first champions in a Four Corners Tag Team Match! Without further ado, Let’s get to it!
“Chasing After” by Tantric plays as pink and blue lights scatter over the arena, Riley McCray appears with a skateboard in hand, she points to the crowd as she drops down her skateboard and speeds towards the ring on it, picking up momentum she zooms towards the small skate ramp at the foot of the entrance and soars over the top rope with a 360 flip.
Jasmine Peyton: The following contest is scheduled for ONE fall and is the Six-Pack Challenge – Unique Opportunity Match! Introducing first from Trenton, New Jersey weighing in at 5’6″ 126 pounds she is THE RAAAADDD ONNNNNEEEEE………. RILEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY MCCCCCCCCCCRRRRRRRAYYYYYYYYYY!!!
Gia: The rambunctious and rad Riley McCray looks to make her mark on this six-pack challenge!
SG1: She’s empire’s resident tomboy, apparently she’s the sickest chick to ever lace a pair of Jordans! Whatever that means!
“Chun-Li” by Nicki Minaj blares over the speakers as pyro blasts off and Kianna Carter’s name appears on the screen in red lettering, the fuchsia locked elitist emerges from the back, turning around and revealing her jacket that has her last name CARTER in glittering red jewels around the border of the letters. She heads confidently down the rampway before going up the steps and entering the ring.
Jasmine Peyton: Introducing second, from Saratoga Springs, New York, weighing in at 5’5″ 114 pounds… she is KIKI, KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAAAA CAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gia: Coming off another good showing even if the results were disappointing against Daisy Thrash, Kianna could really set herself up nice if she can pick up a victory here tonight.
SG1: I’ve been impressed by Kianna, but you’re right, if she could pick up this win it would be MASSIVE for her career. Can you imagine a six pack challenge win at a big time show as your first victory?
“Beast” by Nico Vega blasts over the speakers, emerging from the back is Daisy Thrash dressed in denim shorts and a black t-shirt, covered by a black button up leather jacket. She raises an arm in the air and heads down the ramp.
Jasmine Peyton: Introducing third, from Seattle, Washington weighing in at 5’3″ 155 pounds she is THHHHEEEE RAZZZOOOOORBLADE SNOWWWWWWWWFLAKE……. DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAISSSSSSSSYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY THHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAASHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gia: Speaking of the devil, Daisy came off an impressive and at times dominating contest against Kianna Carter on the latest Empire!
SG1: She’s one of the favorites in this matchup in my opinion, her time to shine is now.
“Voodoo” by Nyxx plays throughout the arena and Remi Skyfire emerges from the back, staring a bleak hole through the three other women in the ring, she walks down the ramp with closed fists and rolls under the bottom rope.
Jasmine Peyton: Introducing fourth, from Somerset, Kentucky, she is THEEEE KILLLEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, REEEEEMMMMMMMMMMMMIIIIIIIIII SKKKKKKKYYYYYYYYFIIIIIIIREEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gia: Arguably the most dangerous competitor in this matchup, Remi is out for blood and of course a win to set herself up nicely.
SG1: She’s as ruthless as it gets and she’s going to let the women in this match know about it quickly.
The lights fade into a soft, dim purple colour focused upon the entrance and the ramp. The crowd turns to face the stage as a projection of white petals on the entrance ramp. Mist begins to billow upwards from a spot on the floor as a figure rises in a kneeling position from the mist.
“They see you as small and helpless… they see you as just a child…”
The figure on the stage rises from the mist, clad the hooded cloak of a white mage, drawing cheers and applause from the Japanese crowd as the cloak billows out behind the competitor.
“Surprise when they find out that a warrior will soon run wild!”
Layla Lockhart reaches her hands up and throws down the hood of her cloak as “This Will Be The Day” begins to echo around the arena, the crowd erupting as the spotlight shining on Layla shimmers on the silver and amethyst tiara worn by her, her hair hanging loosely rather than tied up as usual.
“Prepare for your greatest moments! Prepare for your finest hour! The dream that you’ve always dreamed is suddenly about to flower!”
Layla reaches her hands toward her chest as if in prayer before pulling the cloak off and flinging it away, revealing the regal, gleaming purple ring gear she wears beneath it as well as the kanji of ? painted onto her kickpads.
Layla strolls down the entrance ramp as the crowd continues to shower her in cheers, stopping at the ringside area to kneel down to a young female fan and give her tiara to the young fan before jumping to the ring apron and performing a springboard into the ring, rolling gracefully to stop kneeling on one knee in the very center of the ring, all the lights fading at once except for a purple spotlight focused on Layla as she maintains the kneeling pose, head bowed low.
Jasmine Peyton: Introducing fifth, originally from Salem, Oregon now residing in Orlando, Florida she is THHHHE WARRRRRRRRRIORRRRR PRRRRRRRINCESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS………… LAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA LOOOOOOOOOOOCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKHHHHAARRRRRTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gia: That was beautiful SG1! I think I have a tear in my eye!
SG1: A spectacular entrance by Layla Lockhart! If that entrance is any indication of what’s to come, then we’re in for a treat!
“Stars in the Night” by CFO$ plays over the arena and Raven Roberts suddenly struts from the back wearing midnight blue wings, she puts her hands on her hips soaking in the cheers of the Yokohama Arena and shouts “ARE YOU READY?” towards all of the five other women in the ring as she begins to gracefully walk to the ring.
Jasmine Peyton: And lastly, originally from Louisville, Kentucky now residing in Las Vegas, Nevada weighing in at 6’1″ 151 pounds, she is THE BIRRRRDDD OF PRRRRREYYYYYYYY……. RAVENNNNNNNNNNN ROBBBBBBBBBERRRRRRRTTTTTTTTTTTTTSSSS!!
Gia: Coming off an extremely impressive victory over the tough-as-nails Remi Skyfire is no small feat, she has a major target on her back, you can even see it now, all of the women in the ring are focusing on her!
SG1: As well they should! I’m sure Remi is chomping at the bit to get back at Raven. She is pacing around in the ring like a caged animal!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gia: The bell sounds and here… we… go!
SG1: I have an eerie feeling this is going to get out of control quick.
Gia: Six combustible elements? What’s the worst that could happen?
SG1: Ask Kianna Carter that, she just stepped in the middle of the ring.. but she’s the only one there. I don’t think she realizes what she’s done.. the women form a circle around her, maybe they feel that since she’s the newest Empire signing, that she has to earn her stripes? It’s like some sort of Empire initiation in the ring right now..
Gia: Kianna eyeballs Daisy then Remi, then she turns around and sees Raven, Riley and Layla.. she gulps… AND IT BEGINS! THEY’RE ALL PUMBELING KIANNA CARTER WITH PUNCHES, KICKS, YOU NAME IT, I CAN’T EVEN SEE HER THROUGH THE FOREST OF WOMEN, OR AT LEAST RAVEN ROBERTS THAT IS… FINALLY, REMI SKYFIRE PICKS KIANNA UP OUT OF THE CLUSTER OF WOMEN AND VICIOUSLY TOSSES HER OVER THE TOP ROPE AND ONTO THE FLOOR!
SG1: WHAT’S THIS?! AS IF ON CUE THEY ALL TURN TOWARDS RAVEN, SHE COCKS HER HEAD AND MOUTHS TO HERSELF: “OH SHIT” AND LIKE A PACK OF HUNGRY JACKALS, THEY LEAP ONTO RAVEN, SHE VALIANTLY TRIES TO FEND THEM OFF, HEADBUTTING RILEY AWAY BUT THAT’S ALL! RAVEN IS GROUNDED NOW AS DAISY, LAYLA AND REMI POUND AWAY, BUT REMI BACKS OFF AND GRABS DAISY FROM BEHIND… GERMAN SUPLEX WITH AUTHORITY!!! LAYLA NOTICES THIS AND BOLTS TOWARDS REMI, BUT REMI DUCKS UNDER AND BEHIND……… GERMAN SUPLEX!!! LAYLA BOUNCES OFF OF THE MAT HEAD FIRST LIKE A BASKETBALL!!! HERE COMES RILEY…. AND THERE GOES RILEY! ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!!!!!!! REMI BELTS OUT A WAR CRY!
Gia: Kianna is up on the apron now, she seems frustrated from the earlier treatment by the other women! She says something to Remi, who turns around and arches an eyebrow, remember these two faced off a couple of weeks ago, so there’s some bad blood flowing between them I’m sure. Remi approaches Kianna and backhands the taste out of her mouth as she falls to the floor again! Daisy is back up and surprises Remi and tosses her over the top rope and LOOK OUT! LAYLA IS CLIMBING TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! WHILE KIANNA AND REMI ARE NOW ON THEIR FEET, DUKING IT OUT! OH MY GODDDDD!!!!!!! LAYLA TURNS AROUND, A MODIFIED LOOOOOP DE LOOP!!!!!!!!!! A BEAUTIFUL MOONSAULT LANDED TO PERFECTION ON BOTH KIANNA AND REMI ON THE OUTSIDE!!! BOTH KIANNA AND REMI’S BODY BROKE THE FALL FOR THE MOST PART BUT THEY’RE ALL LAID OUT! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MOVE! Meanwhile, Daisy and Riley are locked in an exchange of right hands, Daisy drives a knee into the mid-section of Riley, Daisy bounces off the opposite ropes and clotheslines both her and Riley over the top rope! They both land on the outside near the rest of the women!
SG1: Raven is finally up! She tends to her sides from where she got stomped and punched. She notices the group of women doing battle on the outside! She looks around and smiles at the crowd.. oh jeez what does she have in min–
Gia: SHE’S GONNA FLY!
SG1: RAVEN CHARGES TOWARDS THE ROPES….. LOOK OUT BELOW!!!!!!!!! SHE LEAPS ATHLETICALLY OVER THE TOP ROPE AND SOARS LIKE THE BIRD OF PREY SHE IS ONTO ALL FIVE OTHER WOMEN! THEY ALL GO DOWN LIKE BOWLING PINS!! THIS LOOKS LIKE A DEMOLITION DERBY! ALL SIX WOMEN ARE SPRAWLED OUT ON THE GROUND! WHAT A CRAZY START, GIA! Raven manages to get to her feet first due to her fall being broken by five other unwilling competitors. She grabs Kianna, who has been the sacrificial punching bag so far in this match, Raven goes to land a right hand to Kianna but Kianna drives Raven back first with her shoulder into the barrier! Now Remi and Daisy are up and exchanging blows!
Gia: LAYLA IS UP ON THE BARRICADE UNNOTICED LIKE SOME SORT OF NINJA WARRIOR PRINCESS, SHE SOMERSAULTS FORWARD AND DROPS BOTH REMI AND DAISY WITH AN IMPRESSIVE DOUBLE FRONT FLIP CLOTHESLINE! LAYLA IS FLYING ALL OVER THE PLACE IN THIS MATCH! Finally, Riley is up.. she’s double-teaming with Kianna, stomping down Raven against the barricade! Before Kianna drills Riley with a forearm out of nowhere that knocks her down! REMI IS UP! SHE LICKS HER LIPS MENACINGLY AND HOOKS KIANNA’S WAIST FROM BEHIND! ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX! KIANNA BOWLS INTO DAISY AND THEY BOTH CRASH INTO THE BARRICADE!!! REMI TURNS AROUND AND IS DRIVEN FACE FIRST INTO THE KNEES OF RILEY! THE RI-BUSTER!!!!! REMI FALLS BACKWARDS ONTO THE PILE OF DAISY AND KIANNA! WHOA! LAYLA IS UP ON THE BARRICADE AGAIN! WHAT IS THIS? PARKOUR?! SHE LEAPS TOWARDS RILEY!
SG1: HUNTTTTTTTTTRESSSSSSSSS BOMBBBBBBBBBBBBBB!! OUT OF NOWHERE! RAVEN JUST CAUGHT LAYLA IN MIDAIR AND DROVE HER DOWN ON THE UNFORGIVING OUTSIDE MAT WITH A BRUTAL SITOUT SPINEBUSTER!!!! LAYLA’S BODY IS BENT IN WAYS THAT IT SHOULDN’T BE! SHE’S OUT COLD! HERE COMES RILEY WHO CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING BACK HEEL KICK TO RAVEN WHO WAS STILL SAT DOWN FROM THAT SITOUT SPINEBUSTER! RAVEN FALLS BACKWARD! HERE COMES DAISY! GOT YOUR NOSE! SHE DRILLS RILEY WITH THAT DISCUS ELBOW SMASH THAT SENT RILEY TOWARDS THE APRON OF THE RING! IT’S REMI NOW, SHE CLUBS DAISY WITH A FOREARM OF HER OWN! NOW KIANNA STEAMS TOWARDS REMI AND DROPKICKS HER IN THE BACK, REMI PROPELS FORWARD AND CLOCKS HEADS WITH DAISY! DAISY FLIES BACKWARD FROM THE IMPACT AND GOES HEAD FIRST INTO THE TURNBUCKLE POST!!!! THAT WAS VICIOUS!! KIANNA PINCHES THE MOUTH OF THE DAZED REMI AND BACKHANDS HER TO TIMBUKTU! A LITTLE PAYBACK FROM EARLIER! THAT’S NOT GOING TO SIT WELL WITH REMI! KIANNA SMIRKS AND BACKS UP….. INTO THE AWAITING RAVEN WHO IS STANDING MENACINGLY BEHIND HER!! KIANNA SLOWLY TURNS AROUND AND LOOKS UP AT RAVEN WHO FLUTTERS HER EYELASHES AND STAPLES KIANNA WITH A HEADBUTT!
Gia: Raven then grabs the arm of Kianna and torpedos her into the steel steps! Kianna’s shoulder taking most of the impact! Riley speeds towards Raven but meets a big boot for her efforts, sending her onto the thin mat below! Raven grabs Riley up and rolls her into the ring, I don’t believe it! Actual in-ring competition in this match, as Raven slides in after her! But Riley scrambles and slides out the opposite side as the crowd boos!
SG1: Turn around Raven! You have company!
Gia: And she does! It’s Remi Skyfire, these two competed in an epic confrontation on Empire recently.. they’re in a stare down, Remi goes for right hand but is clotheslined down by Raven and incomes Riley, sticking a forearm into the back of Raven, who turns around slowly, Riley smiles gently as if to say “I didn’t mean it”, but Raven doesn’t buy it so Riley goes for another forearm, but Raven catches her wrist! SHE LIFTS HER IN THE AIR!!!!!!! HUNTRESSSSSSSSSSSSSS BOMBBBBBBBBBBB! THAT JUST SHOOK THE RING!!!!!!! RAVEN GOES FOR THE PIN…
SG1: BUT DAISY BREAKS IT UP! RAVEN GETS TO HER FEET AND TURNS AROUND, DAISY GOES FOR A FOREARM, BUT RAVEN CATCHES HER MID-PUNCH AND DELIVERS A BELLY TO BELLY, DAISY ROLLS TO THE OUTSIDE IN PAIN! NOW KIANNA SQUIRMS INTO THE RING UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE, SHE IMMEDIATELY RUNS TOWARDS REMI WHO IS BACK UP, BUT SHE TOO IS CAUGHT, WITH A RELEASE NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! WHAT IMPACT! It seems that both Remi and Raven are playing a game of anything you can do, I can do better! Remi and Raven are nose to nose BUT WAIT A SECOND! IT’S LAYLA! HOW THE HELL IS SHE EVEN UP AFTER THAT DEVASTATING HUNTRESS BOMB ON THE OUTSIDE?! SHE LEAPS INTO THE AIR! DOUBLE FRONT DROPKICK, ONE FOOT ON RAVEN, THE OTHER ON REMI DROPPING THEM BOTH! Layla is up and the crowd roars in approval! Layla spins around! Savate kick tags Remi square on the jaw! Raven is up now and goes for a clothesline! Layla ducks this and waits for Raven to turn around, she does… SUPERHERO KICKKKKKKKK! WHICH KNOCKS RAVEN FOR A LOOP! BUT RAVEN IS STILL STANDING!!
SG1: Somehow! LAYLA JERKS HER LEG BACK AND CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER SUPERHERO KICK! THIS ONE KNOCKS RAVEN THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AND TO THE OUTSIDE!!! LAYLA TURNS AROUND! IT’S DAISY! ANARCHY IN THE WA! A THESZ PRESS INTO MOUNTED PUNCHES! SHE’S TEEING OFF ON LAYLA! NOW KIANNA COMES BACK INTO THE MIX, SHE’S GOT DAISY FROM BEHIND! SHE DRAGS HER DOWN! YES!! KIANNA IS NY DREAMIN’ SHE’S GOT DAISY LOCKED INTO THAT BANKS STATEMENT SUBMISSION! DAISY IS WRITHING IN PAIN! IS SHE GOING TO TAP?! THIS COULD BE IT! THE REF SLIDES CLOSE TO DAISY ASKING HER IF SHE SUBMITS!
Daisy: NOOOOO!!! OOOOOOOOOF!
Gia: HOLY HELL! A MIDDLE ROPE MOONSAULT BY REMI ONTO BOTH KIANNA AND DAISY! REMI BOUNCES BACKWARD HOLDING HER MID-SECTION WHILE KIANNA AND DAISY LAY MOTIONLESS! RILEY APPROACHES REMI BUT SHE’S SUDDENLY TRAPPED UNDER THE ARMS OF THE KILLER! RIOT GRRL!!!!!! REMI IS SLAMMING HER SKULL INTO RILEY’S WITH THOSE DESTRUCTIVE HEADBUTTS! REMI QUICKLY DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS THE MID-SECTION OF RILEY! NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!!!!! RILEY BOUNCES OFF OF THE MAT! REMI TURNS AROUND BUT IS MET BY A JUMPING HURRICANRANA FROM LAYLA THAT SENDS REMI THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE!! Layla is holding her back now, still feeling the effects of that huntress bomb from Raven earlier! Kianna is up and bolts towards Layla in which they both go for a dropkick that they both miss! Layla the quicker of the two, is up first and runs towards Kianna but is met with a Japanese arm drag! Layla lands on her back and ends up in a sitting position! SHINNNNNNNNNNINNNNNNNNIIINNNNG WITCHHHHHH! DAISY NEARLY TOOK LAYLA’S HEAD OFF WITH THAT SHINING WIZARD! Kianna barrels towards Daisy but Daisy sidesteps and Kianna goes shoulder first into the abdomen of Raven who was just getting back into the ring on the apron! Raven drops down and goes face first off of the apron! Kianna turns around while Daisy attempts a discus forearm smash, but Kianna ducks this! Daisy turns around! Kianna plants a boot into the stomach of Daisy… DDT! Kianna turns Daisy over and hooks her leg while the coast is clear…

Jasmine Peyton: YOUR WINNNEERRRRRRRRRRR…….. RAVENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN ROBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBERRRRRRRRRRRTSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!
SG1: A sensational performance by all six involved but it is the Bird of Prey that stands tall and is the winner of the unique opportunity!

(A montage of the events leading to Zakkii vs Stella Starr plays including Stella interrupting Zakkii’s retirement announcement. Zakkii appears ringside during a match that Stella loses and she gets the blame for it. Stella exacts her revenge on Zakkii who decides to take matters into her own hands by fighting Stella at Terminus)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jasmine: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL! First, making her way to the ring…
(‘Watch Me’ by Jaden Smith plays through the speakers as Stella makes her way out of the curtains. She stands for a moment looking at the arena at pointing at her fans, before she jumps through the stage high-fiving her fans)
Jasmine: First, Making her way to the ring! From Atlanta, Georgia! Weighing in at 110lbs…Stella Star!
SG1: Stella Star has made it apparent that shoe doesn’t like Zakkii one bit!
Gia: Well according to her she feels that the old guard should move on, leaving the door open for new talent such as herself!
SG1: Because she’s a star right?
Gia: Heh, you said it not me.
(Stella climbs into the ring and moonwalks across the ring. As she throws off her hat, ‘Azure Sky’ by Zakkii plays. The Idol wrestler herself comes skipping out with two blue glow sticks. She receives a strong positive response from the crowd)
Jasmine: From Kyoto, Japan! Weighing in at 110lbs! Zakkii!!!
Gia: I have to say – I was just as shocked as anyone else when I heard about her retirement announcement.
SG1: Well Zakkii spent a good amount of time in EAW. Sometimes the heart has other desires. I have nothing but respect for Zakkii and what she’s done for the Vixens Division! She was the first ever Specialist Champion! She was the heart of the division for such a long time! I’m definitely going to miss you!
(Zakkii climbs into the ring and tosses the glow sticks at her fans. She hops down to face Stella in the middle of the ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: Our newest female referee, Nikka Machida calls for the bell as Zakkii and Stella Starr lock-up in the middle of the ring! Zakkii gets the upper hand with a wristlock! Stella counters with a reverse hammerlock, much to Zakkii’s surprise! Zakkii goes under, gets the arm wringer, and flips Stella onto her back! Zakkii still has the arm, and kneels down to perform an armlock – surprise headscissors counter by Stella! Zakkii’s on her back with those lethal legs of Stella Starr wrapped around her neck! Zakkii’s arching her back, in attempt to reverse the hold! She did it! She rolled backwards to her feet and slipped out of the headsicssors! Zakkii has the leg and starts kicking at Stella’s hamstring! The Star of Empire’s frantically trying to escape! She gets up on one leg while Zakkii is still holding on to the other!
Gia: She’s pleading with the joshi superstar to let go! Zakkii shrugs in response and goes for the dragon screw! Stella cartwheels out of the move, taking advantage of the momentum! The damage to her leg is still evident as she’s feeling a bit wobbly! Zakkii closes in, forcing the collar-and-elbow as she’s pushing Stella against the ropes!
Ref: One! Two! Three! Four!
SG1: Zakkii lets go of the hold and simply pats Stella on the head! Her opponent didn’t like that! Stella swipes at the idol’s face, moonwalks to the center of the ring, taunting her opponent!
Gia: It’s been a while since I’ve seen Zakkii this cocky and comfortable in the ring! Last week She opened a can of whoopass on Riley McCray, and now she’s toying with Stella Starr!
SG1: Well she’s retiring soon Gia – at this point she’s just doing whatever she wants! Stella is staying close to the ref while Zakkii gestures for her to come closer.
Zakkii: (off mic) Come on!
Gia: Stella bursts from behind the ref! Zakkii ducks under the clothesline and waits on the rebound! She’s forced to jump over the sliding Star who rotates along the mat and comes up- Zakkii counters the big boot attempt with a drop toehold! She quickly transitions to a headlock, grounding Stella!
SG1: You know it’s quite interesting – Zakkii was never that much of a grappler. She always overwhelmed her opponents with a fast-paced, colorful offense. But now, she’s out maneuvering her opponent with some good old fashioned catch wrestling! She has to be doing this on purpose to throw Stella off!
Gia: Star’s called Zakkii a has-been, so maybe this is her ay of disproving Stella’s claims?
SG1: Well whatever Zakkii’s gameplan is, it’s working out in her favor! Stella finds herself being lured to her feet by Zakkii via headlock. Stella attempts a back suplex, but Zakkii flips out! She with a dropkick – but Stella is quick enough to scout it! Star has Zakkii in a waistlock and takes her down with a bridging German suplex!
SG1: Zakkii kicks out!
Gia: Stella has shifted the momentum in this match and she’s wasting no time mounting her opponent to deliver a flurry of forearm strikes! She she stands up before the referee Nikka Machida could interfere and starts marching around the ring!
Stella: (yells) I’m the STAR of this ring!
Gia: Stella’s making herself known as Zakkii gets on her hands and knees – WHAT A MEAN SHOT TO THE FACE! Stella came down with a falling roaring forearm! She’s not stopping there as she’s stomping away at Zakkii’s face! Zakkii’s rolling away, trying to escape her opponent’s wrath! Zakkii get to the ropes as Stella is coming for her – back body drop to the outside and Star finds herself on the apron! Spinning backhand out of nowhere by Zakkii, but a stunned Stella is still hanging onto the ropes! Zakkii runs to the opposite ropes, rebounds, and leaps! CORKSCREW DROP KICK TO THE FACE AND STELLA GOES FLYING OFF THE APRON!
SG1: She appears to not be done as she climbs up the nearest turnbuckle! Stella is taking her time getting to her feet! Zakkii is perched up high, measuring her opponent as she waits for the perfect opportunity to – DIVING CROSSBODY! Zakkii connects as she lands on top of a standing Stella, finding her target!
(A replay of Zakkii taking flight with a picture perfect diving crossbody is shown, freezing briefly at the full height of her jump)
Crowd: HAI! HAI! HAI! HAI!
SG1: This Japanese crowd is adopting an American style as they continue to cheer for the Azure Warrior!
Gia: Zakkii is at her best when she can adopt a hit and run strategy on her opponent! Shifting gears midway through this match, she managed to through Stella off her game! It looks like Nikka Machida is starting the count!
SG1: Zakkii gets Stella in an arm wringer hold and starts kicking the mid-section! One! Two! Three! Four! Five! She pulls Stella forward and whips her into the – Wait! Stella has a foot on the steel steps! She still has life left in her! She reverse with all her might – ZAKKII IS WHIPPED INTO THE STAIRS HEAD FIRST! Stella falls to her knees after expending every ounce of energy!
Gia: I have to say – I’m impressed that Stella has found the will to stay in this match after Zakkii had put on a wrestling clinic for the past couple of minutes! Stella is up, hovering over Zakkii, who seems to be holding her head!
Stella: (off mic) You like that!? Huh!?
Gia: Star picks up Zakkii and slams her head against the ring post! Zakkii’s head bounces like a beach ball and she goes stumbling into the barricade!
SG1: That’s a bad place she wants to but, leaning against the barricade! Stella Star is watching her closely…RUNNING BIG BOOT TO THE FACE AND ZAKKII GOES DOWN AGAIN!
SG1: Stella eyes the ref for a moment, possibly wondering whether she should roll her opponent back into the ring. She doesn’t seem done as she picks up Zakkii by the hair and lays her over the barricade – DDT! ZAKKII’S HEAD JUST GOT SPIKED ONTO THE FLOOR! Jesus, I’m glad the outside of the ring is padded!
Gia: Things have turned from bad to worse for Zakkii who doesn’t seem like she may be able to continue if this keeps up! Stella’s laughing at the boos she’s receiving from the audience!
Crowd: THOT! THOT! THOT!
SG1: You know these chants seem familiar…
Gia: Star picks up Zakkii and delivers a mean backbreaker! Zakkii’s holding her lower back, barely conscious from the assault she’s been on the receiving end of!
SG1: Stella seems to be in complete control at this point – it’s going to take everything for Zakkii to find a way back into this match! NECKBREAKER! Zakkii’s neck is driven onto the floor! Stella seems perfectly fine fighting her ringside!
Gia: Stella Star knows that Zakkii’s strength is being inside that ring with her fast paced super junior style! She’s able to cut Zakkii’s moveset in half just by being out here! Stella is dragging Zakkii over to the announcer’s table! Oh no, not this again! Wait, she’s dragging Zakkii to the Japanese announcer’s table, where tonight’s team of joshi legends Miss Manami and Nina Sanada are giving their play by play!
SG1: Miss Manami and Sanada are rolling their eyes , but move out the way to avoid interfering with the match! Stella starts tearing off the top!
Gia: I don’t know if Star is paying attention to the countdown, but she needs to either restart the count, or bring her and her opponent into the ring ASAP! After several shots to the face, she throws Zakkii on top of the table! I have several ideas of what she’s up to and none of them are pretty!
SG1: Stella rolls back into the ring and rolls back out, causing the ref to restart the count! She then climbs onto the apron and atop the top turnbuckle nearest to the Japanese announcer’s table! That’s still quite a distance away! Is Stella Star able to leap that far!?
Gia: Stella is about to take flight…MIRACLE FROM THE SKY! OH MY GOD ZAKKII ROLLS OFF THE TABLE JUST IN TIME AS STELLA STAR GOES CRASHING INTO THE JAPANESE ANNOUNCER’S TABLE!
SG1: Wow, Stella’s body just took the full brunt of that failed Frog Splash attempt!
(A replay shows Stella Star taking off with her signature Frog Splash, only to narrowly miss Zakkii who falls off the table, causing Star to crash through)
SG1: The crowd is losing their minds at this point! Stella and Zakkii are both on the floor! One is barely conscious, the other isn’t!
Gia: Zakkii is crawling towards the ring, still feeling the effects of the beating she received earlier! Stella is stirring, but somehow she’s moving! Zakkii is on her feet, but instead of going to the ring, she’s looking at Stella!
SG1: She’s picking her up by the hair – much like Stella did her – and is slowly dragging her towards the ring! She rolls her in and climbs up on the apron. Does Zakkii even have the strength left to do anything at all? SPRINGBOARD BODY SPLASH! Zakkii lifts both legs for the cover!
SG1: Stella gets the shoulder up! Zakkii is absolutely shocked! I am too considering how falling through that table should have taken everything out of her! Instead of crying over spilled milk, Zakkii decides to get up and climb to the top rope! She takes off immediately!! GLORIA!!!
Gia: NO DICE!
SG1: Stella got the legs up in time to avoid getting hit with that Swanton Dive! Zakkii’s head made contact with Star’s shins! The joshi is on her feet, stunned, by what just happened! Stella kip-ups to her feet! She leaps in the air DOWN IN THE BOTTOM FRANKENSTEINER! ZAKKII FLIPS OUT OF IT AND LANDS ON HER FEET! SHE TURNS AND AVOIDS THE BACKHAND FIST! ZAKKII STRIKES BACK WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES AND SLAPS! DANCE FLOOR SHREDDER! STELLA’S STUNNED FROM THE ONSLAUGHT! She’s left standing on one knee! Zakkii is running to the opposite corner, gripping both ropes! I’m seeing the killer instinct in her eyes! She’s charges forward!
Gia: AKIBAAAAAAA DESTROYER!!!!
SG1: ZAKKII NAILS THE FLIPPING DDT! IT’S LIGHTS OUT FOR STELLA STAR! ZAKKII MAKES THE COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Azure Sky” plays as Zakkii rolls off Stella Star, exhausted)
Jasmine: Your winner by pinfall…ZAKKII!!
SG1: What a close, brutal battle! Zakkii started off on a strong note, but Stella had a solid strategy, keeping a high flyer like Zakkii outside of the ring!
Gia: She should have stuck with that strategy, but instead she wanted to take Zakkii out of commision!
SG1: But regardless, Stella Star held her own against an Empire original and Vixens’ Division veteran! I’m sure this is an experience she’s going to learn from and use to further her ability! While it’s nice to pull off head-turning, risk taking feats, one must be ready for anything that comes their way!
(Zakkii climbs the nearest turnbuckle and blows a heartfelt kiss to her fans)
Gia: Later on, we’re supposed to hear from Zakkii herself about who her final opponent will be at PFP!
SG1: Speaking of Pain for Pride…segue!
(COMMERCIAL AD – EAW Presents: Pain for Pride Festival! Theme song reveal: “Monster 2.0” by Jacob Banks ft boogie! )
(A montage of events leading up to the Specialist Championship match plays including Revy’s demand to fight Chelsea Crowe and her announcement that they were going to fight in a Texas Bullrope Match. Clips of their Press Conference is shown, including their back and forth argument, and Chelsea’s last words)
(“Red Fraction”– Mell plays as the crowd gives a positive reaction to Revy as she comes out in the most confident way possible, believing she is in her element at the moment.)
SG1: This is the woman who has a huge advantage going in this match! There is no woman like her who is as experienced in this type of stipulation like she is! According to Moongoose Queen, Revy’s brother, she is the “worst” and that “she ruins everything”, but will she ruin Chelsea Crowe’s reign as Specialists Champion?
Gia Cervantes: With this match stipulation, it seems like everything is in Revy’s favor. It should be interesting what Revy pulls out of her bag for this match.
(“Born to Die” — Sidewalks and Skeletons plays as the crowd BOOS for Chelsea Crowe, who walks out with the Specialists Championship on her waist.)
Gia Cervantes: Here is the woman who seems out of her element tonight. Chelsea Crowe is not experienced in a Bullrope Match. I don’t think she’s ever participated in one to begin with.
SG1: Chelsea Crowe is Specialists Champion for a reason and I am positive that she will pull something out of the bag for this match and retain!
(The lights go out, but three spotlights shine for Chelsea Crowe, Jasmine Peyton and Revy.)
Jasmine Peyton: This is a Bullrope Match and it’s for the EAW Specialists Championship! Due to the request of Revy, the only way to win is by touching all four corners.
Jasmine Peyton: Introducing first, from Houston, Texas, she is the “Ace of Spades”, REEEEEEEEEVYYYYYYYYY!!
(The crowd cheers for Revy as she raises her hands up in confidence.)
Jasmine Peyton: Introducing her opponent…
(Crowd begins to boo the hell out of Chelsea.)
Jasmine Peyton: …from Auckland, New Zealand, she is the CURRENT REIGNING EAW Specialists Champion, “The Corporate C–t”, CHHELLLLLLSEEEEEAAAAA CRRROOOOWEEEE!!
(The crowd begins to boo as Chelsea raises her title up in the air. She then gives it to Jesse Carlton, the Empire referee, who raises the title up in the air before giving it to the time keeper. She then grabs the bull rope and ties the rope into the right wrist of Revy and then the left wrist of Chelsea. As it seems like both women are secured by the bullrope, Jesse rings for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
SG1: This Specialists Championship Match is underway! Chelsea Crowe, our champion, who won the belt back in March at the Grand Rampage FPV in a Specialists Rampage Match. She outlasted nineteen other women to get the belt. Was it the luck of the draw or is Chelsea that damn good? Revy, a woman who has always been underestimated due to her gender. A woman who has never been afraid to fire as many shots as possible to her opponents and man, has she fired some shots directly at Chelsea’s way! Revy does not give a damn, but will that careless, but chaotic personality bring her her first championship in EAW?
(As both women are separated by the ten feet bullrope, Revy begins to trash talk Chelsea, who is keeping her composure and not let Revy get under her skin.)
Gia Cervantes: Revy has shown to get frustrated at times. This is the last place where Revy should show any emotions. She needs to channel back to the mindset she had back in the Specialists Rampage. She was able to make it through the final three, but if she wants to leave Japan with the Specialists Championship, she is either going to need to touch the four corners consecutively if she wants to make that happen!
(As the trash talking progresses, before Chelsea can get a word into the exchange, Revy makes a gun gesture with her hands and right at the center of Chelsea’s forehead.)
Revy (pulls the trigger): BANG!
SG1: AND LIKE THAT, CHELSEA CROWE BEGINS TO UNLOAD ON REVY! CHELSEA FIRES HER SHOTS AT REVY, BACKING HER INTO THE CORNER! CHELSEA DELIVERS A MEAN CHOP TO REVY’S CHEST BEFORE TAGGING THE CORNER AS THE GREEN LIGHTS UP!
SG1: What Chelsea did right there is an example of what either of these women have do to win the match! They need tag all four corners in order to win the match. Thanks the the light going off, Revy uses that small window of opportunity to get back at Chelsea and throw some punches of her own, getting her away from the corner, that Chelsea put her at! Chelsea with a giant knee to Revy’s stomach! Revy bends forward as Chelsea bounces towards the side ropes, grabs Revy by her hair and snapmares her against the mat! Chelsea gets on top of Revy and begins to fire away on some punches before getting herself up and stomping on the ribs of Revy! One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Chelsea backs away before Jesse Carlton can tell her too. Casually, Chelsea steps right over Revy, who yelps in pain as the crowd seems to hate what Chelsea did right there.
(The crowds unapproval gets louder as Chelsea does not let it phase her.)
Gia Cervantes: Chelsea gives one last stomp on Revy as she casually shrugs before picking Revy up and going for a hangman’s neckbreaker before countering with a DDT! Instead of going for the cover, Chelsea gets Revy up and whips her across the ropes! Chelsea runs to Revy like the speed of lightning and–
(Revy slides outside of the ring before Chelsea can collide with her.)
Gia Cervantes: I don’t think that may be a good idea, Revy! For the sake of this match, you are binded with her.
(Chelsea gently yanks at the bullrope as Revy rolls her eyes.)
Revy: Give me five!
(Revy sighs as she approaches a bunch of male fans in the front row. Specifically, she sees one with a Bud Light. Revy snatches the beer from the guy and begins to gulp the beer up.)
(Chelsea, annoyed, exits the ring and tries to resume the match. Revy, who has her back turned has the beer in her mouth. Chelsea aggressively turns Revy around and…)
Gia Cervantes: REVY SPITS THE BEER RIGHT AT CHELSEA’S FACE AS REVY GOES AT IT WITH CHELSEA AGAIN! CHELSEA IS DISGUSTED AND ANGRY AS REVY RAMS HER AGAINST THE RING APRON! CHELSEA SLIDES DOWN AS REVY CONNECTS WITH LOW DROPKICK, MAKING CHELSEA’S HEAD FALL BACK AGAINST THE RINGSIDE MAT. IT DOES NOT MATTER IF REVY IS TIED TO CHELSEA, SHE IS MAKING CHELSEA WANT TO BE SEPARATED BY THIS LOON! REVY GETS CHELSEA UP AND REVY WITH THE FALCON ARROW! THE SITOUT SUPLEX SLAM ON CHELSEA RINGSIDE AS CHELSEA FINDS HERSELF FACE FIRST AGAINST THE MAT! REVY THEN GETS CHELSEA BACK UP AND GOES FOR A BELLY-TO-BACK SUPLEX AS CHELSEA SEEMS TO BE DOWN AND OUT! THIS MATCH IS NO DISQUALIFICATION AND NO COUNT OUTS. THE ONLY WAY TO WIN IS BY TAGGING THE FOUR CORNERS!
Revy: See? All I needed was five. :grinning:
SG1: Revy gets Chelsea by her arm and whips her against the steel steps! Chelsea’s entire body goes crashing against the steel steps as she is holding her back in pain! Revy distances herself a bit before running and connecting with a side crossbody on Chelsea Crowe! Revy clashing onto Chelsea and the steel steps at the same time! Revy is holding her stomach in pain as she finds the strength to get onto her knees and throw some fists onto Chelsea’s back! Revy follows that with a snampare of her own, before getting Chelsea back up and STUNNNN GUNNNNNN!! Revy flapjacks Chelsea against the ring apron drops that up with a hangman! Chelsea goes flying back as Revy grabs Chelsea by her hair and rolls her back into the ring! Chelsea seems to be out of it, Gia!
Gia Cervantes: Chelsea sits her way up again! Revy does not get frustrated there as she continues on with a shoot kick onto Chelsea’s back! Chelsea groans in pain as Revy connects with a sidekick, knocking Chelsea to her side! Soon after that, Revy gets Chelsea on her back again and goes for a quick elbow drop! She goes for another quick elbow drop! She repeats this move over and over again as the crowd reaction gets positively louder with each elbow drop! Out of nowhere, Revy drives her knee into Chelsea’s face as she begins to scrap all her makeup off her face. Revy follows that up with a giant knee to Chelsea’s face, which knocked Chelsea out for the moment.
Revy: REVY RUINS EVERYTHING, HUH? YOU’RE DAMN F—-ING RIGHT!
(The crowd explodes in cheers as a “Revy’s Gonna Kill You” chant breaks out during the crowd.)
Gia Cervantes: Revy stands up! What the hell is she doing? She gets Chelsea up! What is Revy going for? Revy takes Chelsea in between the first and second rope and places her there! Chelsea’s head is faced towards the apron onto the outside! Revy is pointing the the corner as the crowd is rising to their feet to see what Revy us up too! Revy situates herself onto the top rope, she looks at Chelsea, who is not moving at all and she situates herself up! HOOUUUUUSTINNNNNNN HANNNGGGOOOOOVVVEEERRRRR!! THE DIVING SOMERSAULT LEG DROP OVER THE TOP ROPE ON CHELSEA CROWE!
SG1: No, Gia! Chelsea was playing possum! She gets out of the way. Revy falls into a seated position as she falls to the outside of the ring! Chelsea smirks as she quickly bounces towards the side ropes, facing Revy and connects with a basement dropkick, sending Revy crashing towards the front of our announcer’s table! Chelsea exits the ring and approaches Revy! Chelsea grabs Revy, who is down for the moment and connects with a sleeperhold! Chelsea Crowe has the sleeper hold locked on Revy ringside! Revy is trying to move herself around, but it is no use at all! Revy is trying to fight with herself to get out of the sleeper hold, but Chelsea has the hold locked on her very well!
Gia Cervantes: Revy is in some serious trouble at the moment! She needs to think of a way to get out of the submission hold! Chelsea is trying to bring this match to the ground, so expect rest holds, submission holds and anything that she can utilize to bring her opponents to the ground. Revy, one the other hand, who knows what she is capable of? She is the wildcard out of this Women’s Division. Who knows what is going to happen with her?
SG1: REVY FLIPS OVER CHELSEA! CHELSEA FALLS INTO A SEAT POSITION–NO! CHELSEA IS ABLE TO CATCH HERSELF! REVY KICKS CHELSEA IN THE STOMACH! RECOIL! NO! CHELSEA HAD THE MOVE SCOUTED! CHELSEA SITS DOWN AND SCOOTS AWAY FROM REVY AS SHE THINKS ABOUT HER NEXT STEP IN HER PLAN TO RETAIN THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP! SHE KNOWS THAT REVY IS ABLE TO HIT THE RECOIL, THAT IT COULD BE GAME OVER! THAT IS THE LAST THING THAT MUST HAPPEN! ALL REVY NEEDS IS ONE SHOT AT THE RECOIL! ONE SHOT AND IT’S OVER! REVY RUNS TO CHELSEA AND CONNECTS WITH A RUNNING FOREARM! SHE FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A SWITCHBLADE KICK! REVY UNTANGLES THE BULLROPE AND GETS ON OUR ANNOUNCER’S TABLE! REVY SITUATES HERSELF! I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT SHE IS GOING TO GO WITH NEXT! ROUNDHOUSE KICK ON CHELSEA CROWE FROM THE ANNOUNCER’S TABLE!
Gia Cervantes: No! Chelsea was able to catch Revy by her feet! Chelsea smirks as she spins Revy around, hitting the front of our announcer’s table! Chelsea gets Revy up; Chelsea throws a punch to Revy’s skull and follows that up with a knee to the stomach! Revy bends forward, holding her stomach as Chelsea grabs Revy and connects with a Northern Lights Suplex! Chelsea follows that up with a double foot stomp on Revy’s stomach! Chelsea gets up and grabs Revy’s down and out body and drags her to the steel steps! She wraps some of the bullrope onto Revy’s neck! SG, I am kind of concerned for what Chelsea has in mind next! People need to remember about the bullrope and cowbell in the middle are legal in the match up! Chelsea wraps some of the bullrope around Revy’s neck. Still, she has some room to perform any move she would like, but I am curious to what Chelsea has underneath her sleeve! Revy’s neck is tied! Chelsea has Revy in a powerbomb position! She get Revy up and then gets her in a widow’s peak position! Chelsea is holding the bullrope as Revy is in the widow’s peak position, Revy is gasping for air!
Chelsea Crowe: Revy is going to kill me, huh? Think again.
SG1: BANKBREAKER! BANKBREAKER! REVY LANDS ON OUR TABLE AS CHELSEA CONNECTED WITH THE BANKBREAKER! THE GORY LOCK FACEBUSTER CRASHES REVY TO OUR TABLE! IT DOESN’T BREAK OUR TABLE, BUT CHELSEA DID THIS EXACT SAME MOVE TO ARIA JAXON BACK ON THE ICONIC CUP AND ALMOST BLED HER TO DEATH! REVY ROLLS BACK TO CHELSEA AS CHELSEA GRABS REVY LIKE A RAG DOLL AND ROLLS HER BACK INTO THE RING!
Gia Cervantes: Chelsea notices that Revy is still down from the Bankbreaker as slowly gets up to her feet! She approaches the one corner and tags the corner as the first green light lights up! She slowly goes to the other one and tags the second corner as the green light lights up! The crowd is on their feet and in concern about Chelsea being two corners away from retaining the Specialists Championship! Revy is still on the ground and lifeless! Come on, Revy! You need to get up! Chelsea walks over and tags the third corner as the green light lights up! Chelsea is smoking! She is one corner away from retaining the championship! Chelsea approaches the corner! She raises her hand for to tag the last corner! Chelsea tags the corner!
SG1: REVY WITH A BACKSTABBER ON CHELSEA CROWE! CHELSEA CROWE GOES BACK AS REVY BEGINS APPLYING FOR THE S.O.L. SHE IS GOING FOR THE STF SUBMISSION HOLD AS SHE HAS THE HOLD LOCKED IN! CHELSEA IS SCRATCHING AND CLAWING FOR A WAY TO GET TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! THIS IS A SIMILAR SITUATION LIKE SHE WAS AT THE ICONIC CUP! SHE ENDED UP LOSING TO ARIA JAXON VIA SUBMISSION AND NOW, SHE MIGHT LOSE HER TITLE THANKS TO THE S.O.L! REVY BENDS CHELSEA’S BODY BACK AS CHELSEA IS SCREAMING IN PAIN! THIS SCENARIO IS WAY TOO SIMILAR TO HER! REVY NEEDS TO REALIZE THAT SHE CANNOT WIN THIS MATCH BY SUBMISSION! CHELSEA IS TAPPING, BUT IT DOES NOT MATTER! REVY NEED TO TAG THE FOUR CORNERS! SHE COULD EVEN TOUCH ALL FOUR CORNERS! GETTING CHELSEA TO TAP OUT DOES NOT MATTER! WAIT, WHO’S THAT ON THE APRON?
Gia Cervantes: Wait, that’s Braxton DeVil! That’s the creep that’s been accompanying the Crowe’s Nest into their matches! That’s the same man that helped Chelsea Crowe win the Specialists Championship at the Grand Rampage! He’s not supposed to be out here! He’s on the apron and he’s trash talking to Revy! Revy lets go of the submission hold! Chelsea is unconscious! Revy now focuses her attention onto Braxton! Revy is not a happy camper at the moment! Braxton is talking to Revy, who looks at him with a cold stare!
(Braxton DeVil stops talking as Revy gestures the gun signal to Braxton’s forehead and then pulls the trigger.)
Gia Cervantes: RECOIL! REVY DELIVERS THE STUNNER TO BRAXTON DEVIL! DEVIL GOES FLYING BACK TO RINGSIDE AS CHELSEA USES THAT AS A DISTRACTION TO HIT REVY FROM THE BACK OF HER HEAD! CHELSEA KNEELS DOWN TO GRAB THE BACK OF REVY’S HEAD AND LOOKS AT HER DEAD IN THE EYE!
Chelsea Crowe: No one hurts him. Got that?
SG1: REVY SPITS RIGHT ONTO CHELSEA’S EYE! I THINK THAT WAS A GIANT MISTAKE, GIA! CHELSEA HEADBUTTS REVY IN RESPONSE AS SHE WHIPS THE SPIT OFF HER EYE! IF CHELSEA WASN’T ANGRY NOW, SHE SHOULD BE. IF THERE IS ONE THING THAT YOU SHOULD NOT DO, THAT IS MAKE CHELSEA CROWE ANGRY! CHELSEA PICKS UP REVY AND GRABS HER BY THE ARM! CHELSEA CONNECTS WITH A COUPLE SHORT-ARM LARIAT ON REVY BEFORE GRABBING HER AND CONNECTING WITH A ROLLING ARM SNAP! REVY WIGGLES LIKE A FISH AS SHE HOLDS HER LEFT ARM IN PAIN! CHELSEA PULLS OUT THE ARM SHE WAS WORKING ON MOMENTS AGO AND BEGINS TO STOMP ON THE ARM! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FOUR TIMES, CHELSEA STEPS ON THE ARM AS REVY HOLDS IT IN PAIN! CHELSEA THEN BEGINS TO WORK ON REVY’S FINGERS! CHELSEA MAY BE ELIMINATING ONE OF REVY’S BIGGEST TOOLS TO WINNING THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP! BY INJURING HER FINGERS, SHE MIGHT NOT WANT TO GO WITH THE RISK OF TAGGING THE CORNERS RIGHT AWAY!
Gia Cervantes: Chelsea works on the other hand! Chelsea, with her boot, smashes Revy’s fingers as Revy holds her fingers in pain! Chelsea gets a hold of Revy’s fingers again! Revy gets her fingers stomped on again by Chelsea Crowe! Revy is crying out again as Chelsea smirks in satisfaction! Chelsea gets Revy up by her arm and whips her to the corner! Revy tries to hold herself with the ropes between her, but she is seen to be in pain! Chelsea quickly uses that as an opportunity to connect with a big boot to the corner! Chelsea goes for decides to tag the corner as the green light lights up! Revy needs to do tag the lights if she wants a red light to appear! Chelsea distances herself from the corner again and connects with some double knees to Revy! She distances herself again and connects with a cannonball to complete The Haka! Revy is crawling as Chelsea bounces to the ropes and connects with Ka Mate, the leg drop DDT!
SG1: Meanwhile, for anyone that gives a crap, Braxton DeVil is still feeling the effects of the Recoil given by Revy earlier in the match up! He has not moved ever since, but it should be interesting how he helps Chelsea if he ever does wake up! Chelsea gets Revy up as Revy begins to push Chelsea away from her! Chelsea with a roundhouse-freighed superkick! Chelsea likes to call that The Little Death! No! Revy is able to duck! Chelsea tries to catch up to Revy, but Revy with a spear! A spear that takes down Chelsea! Revy begins to unload some fists onto Chelsea’s forehead! Revy gets Chelsea up and delivers an uppercut, which sends Chelsea bouncing to the ropes! Revy whips her to the other side of the ropes, Chelsea catches herself on the other ropes, runs, but Revy connects with the Shooting Peach, a charging jumping hip attack before Chelsea can do anything to stop her momentum! Chelsea falls flat on her back as Revy sees that as an opportunity to go and tag the corners! This could be Revy’s only opportunity to win the Specialists Championship in this kind of fashion! She quickly runs to the first one and tags it! The red light lights up! She quickly runs to the second corner, tags it and the red light lights up again! She goes to the third corner, tags it and she approaches the fourth one and she tags it!
Gia Cervantes: NO! CHELSEA CROWE GRABS REVY BY HER OTHER ARM AND PULLS HER BACK! NO! REVY IS TRYING TO PULL HERSELF FORWARD SO THAT SHE CAN GET THAT LAST TAG IN! REVY IS FINGERTIPS AWAY FROM WINNING THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP! SHE IS LITERALLY FINGERTIPS FROM WINNING ONE OF THE THREE CROWNED JEWELS OF EMPIRE! REVY CONTINUES TO TRY TO PULL HERSELF FORWARD, BUT CHELSEA IS TRYING TO PULL HER BACK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! SHE REFUSES TO LET HERSELF LOSE HER CHAMPIONSHIP WITHOUT HER DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT! YOU CAN SEE THAT CHELSEA IS LOSING HER GRIP! SHE IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO HANG ON, BUT HER GRIP IS SLIPPING AWAY FROM HER! CHELSEA LOSES HER GRIP! REVY TAGS THE FOUR TURNBUCKLE!
SG1: DROPKICK BY BRAXTON DEVIL! BRAXTON TO THE RESCUE AS HE PREVENTS REVY FROM TAGGING THE FINAL CORNER! CHELSEA IS SMIRKING AT THE CORNER AS SHE WATCHES BRAXTON JUST RIP APART REVY! BRAXTON GRABS REVY AND DELIVERS A FIREMAN CARRY SLAM ON REVY! HE GRABS THE COWBELL, WHICH IS IN THE CENTER OF BULLROPE! OH MY GOD! THAT BASTARD BRAXTON DEVIL JUST HIT REVY ON TOP OF THE HEAD WITH THE COWBELL! OVER AND OVER AGAIN, BRAXTON IS HITTING REVY ON THE HEAD WITH THE COWBELL! SOMEONE GET THIS MONSTER AWAY FROM THIS RING! HE CAN POSSIBLY GIVE REVY A CONCUSSION! BRAXTON BEGINS TO GRAB SOME OF THE ROPE, WRAPS IT AROUND REVY’S NECK AND BEGINS TO CHOKE HER WHILE HITTING HER WITH THE COWBELL! REVY IS BLEEDING FROM HER MOUTH! SOMEONE STOP HIM! HOW CAN THAT C–T CHELSEA CROWE JUST WATCH BRAXTON KILL HER OPPONENT?
Gia Cervantes: Well, there you have your answer. Chelsea Crowe has proven that she is nothing more than a c–t. Braxton is looking over to Chelsea, almost waiting for her next instructions.
Chelsea Crowe: What are you looking for? End her.
Gia Cervantes: With the rope still wrapped around her neck, Braxton picks her up for a chokeslam! CHOKESLAM! Chokeslam on Revy as Braxton gets up and shows her a beaten down Revy! Chelsea pats Braxton on the back, before her jaw drops!
SG1: REVY STANDS UP AS SHE IS WOBBLY ON HER FEET! REVY IS NOT ALRIGHT! SHE MIGHT NEED A TRAINER TO CHECK ON HER! CHELSEA, WITH A LOOK AT ANGER, LOOKS AT REVY, WONDERING WHAT SHE NEEDS TO DO TO GET HER DOWN JUST ENOUGH FOR HER TO TAG ALL THE CORNERS! BLOOD IS ALL OVER REVY’S FACE. SHE IS DROOLING BLOOD FROM HER MOUTH AND YET, REVY STILL STANDS TO CONTINUE FIGHTING.
Revy: Tell your simp that my ass beating needed more cowbell!
Gia Cervantes: REVY SPITS BLOOD DIRECTLY AT CHELSEA’S FACE AS CHELSEA BEGINS HER FISTS OF RAGE ON REVY’S FACE! REVY JOINS IN WITH FISTS OF HER OWN AS CHELSEA KNEES REVY IN THE STOMACH BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A UPPERCUT! REVY BOUNCES TO THE SIDE ROPES AS CHELSEA GRABS HER BY THE ARM AND WHIPS HER TO THE OTHER SIDE! Chelsea bends down! Revy goes down! REEEEECOOOILLLL!! No! Chelsea gets right back up and distances herself from Revy! Just like mentioned in the beginning of this match, if Revy is able to hit that Recoil, then it’s game over for Chelsea! You all saw that happened to Braxton earlier in the match up when he was hit with the Recoil. He was down for a while! Chelsea runs to Revy and delivers a shining wizard to Revy! No! Revy moves out of the way and counters with leg sweep!
SG1:CHELSEA GETS OUT OF THE WAY! REVY RUNS TO CHELSEA WITH A LARIAT! NO! CHELSEA DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY! CHELSEA BOUNCES TO THE SIDE ROPES! REVY WITH AN ELBOW STRIKE TO CHELSEA’S FACE! REVY FOLLOWS THAT BY A KICK TO THE STOMACH! REEEEEEEECOOOOOOILLLLLLLLLL!! OH MY GOD! THE MOVE CONNECTS! IT’S GAME OVER! IT’S GAME OVER! NEW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION!!
Gia Cervantes: No! Braxton pull Chelsea from harm’s way! Revy is in rage right now! Revy is groggy and wobbly on her feet still! She is gesturing for Braxton to step in the ring with her? Has Revy gone insane? Does she remember how Braxton almost killed her earlier in the match? I don’t think she even cares at this point! All she wants to do is beating the living heck out of Braxton DeVil. Chelsea is out for the count! She should go for the cover again! Braxton gets into the ring and looks Revy dead in the eyes! Revy slaps Braxton across the cheek! Braxton’s cheek is turned as he has a small smirk on his face! Almost like the smirk of death has formed in his lips! Braxton headbutts Revy across the forehead! Revy falls down to one knee! As Braxton bounces from the side ropes and connects with a shining wizard on Revy! Revy is down! Braxton gets the cowbell and places it on top of Revy’s forehead! He wraps some of the bull rope around Revy’s head and ties underneath the chin. What in the world is Braxton gonna do next? Braxton looks at Revy, who is still down and on all fours and bounces from the side ropes! OH MY GOD! CHELSEA SMILES! BRAXTON DEVIL TAKES A PAGE OUT OF CHELSEA CROWE’S PLAYBOOK WITH THE CHELSEA SMILES. THE KNEE DROP FACEBUSTER KNOCKS REVY AGAINST THE MAT! REVY IS OUT! CHELSEA IS OUT! WHAT IS BRAXTON GONNA DO NEXT?
SG1: Braxton rolls Revy out of the ring! Braxton took Revy out of the equation and she has not moved one bit! I think she may be out! Braxton picks up Chelsea and tries to get her back on her feet, but Chelsea is still out, but Braxton continues to have a good hold on her! Braxton walks her over to the first corner! He grabs her hand and helps her tag the first corner as the green light lights up! The crowd begins to boo out there! Braxton walks Chelsea over to the second corner as he helps her tag the second corner as the green light lights up! Braxton continues to walk her to the third corner as he helps her tag the third corner as the green light lights up for the third time! Lastly, he has his sights on the last corner! He is trying to encourage Chelsea to walk to the fourth corner! Slowly, he is guiding her to the fourth corner! As soon as he makes it to the fourth corner, he helps her tag it! The match is over! Chelsea Crowe retains!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Born to Die” play as Braxton lets Chelsea drop and he holds her in his arms. He is kissing the top of her forehead as Chelsea still seems to be out of it for the bit as Jesse Carlton hands Chelsea the Specialists Championship, but Braxton snatches the title and places it on her lap.)
Jasmine Peyton: The winner and STILL EAW Specialists Champion, CHHHHHEEEELLLLLLLSEEEEEAAAAAA CRRROOOWEEEEE!!
SG1: Holy crap! What a match! What a brutal match! You can say that the match ended in controversy, but I think Braxton DeVil served his purpose and Chelsea Crowe is STILL your Specialists Champion!
Gia Cervantes: I’m really concerned about Revy! She took a beating in this match. I thought as soon as she hit the Recoil that we were going to crown a new champion!
( Replays of the Houston Hangover by Revy, Bankbreaker by Chelsea, Braxton DeVil getting involved for the first time in the match and getting Recoiled, Braxton dropkicking Revy and preventing her from tagging the fourth turnbuckle, his assault with the cowbell on Revy and her kicking out in two, Revy hitting the Recoil and Braxton connecting with a Chelsea Smiles with the cowbell on Revy’s head.)
(Camera pans to Revy, who is being tended to by medical personnel, but she tries to push them away, but medical personnel keeps insisting that she get the help she needs.)
SG1: It does not matter if you like her or hate her, but Chelsea Crowe is still YOUR Specialists Champion!
(Braxton DeVil holds Chelsea Crowe up with her arm on his shoulders as Braxton celebrates with Chelsea with a smirk on her face.)

(Video clips of the events leading up to the Revolt Freeweight Championship match plays including Payton Darkstar appearing at the end of Sienna Jade vs Lexi Sheckler at Revolt 2. Astraea Jordan returns to Empire and Flannery McCoy makes the announcement that she is included in the Freeweight Championship match at Terminus. Clips of their heated press conference is shown, including developing animosity between Sienna and Astraea.)
(“Party Goin’ Dumb” — Rico Nasty plays as the crowd gives a mixed reaction, mostly cheers to Astraea Jordan who walks out in the most confident way possible.)
SG1: Astraea Jordan was someone who was part of EAW. Someone who made a great impression going up against competitors like Consuela Rose Ava and Aria Jaxon. However, it was at King of Elite, where she lost to Aria Jaxon, where Chairman of the Board, Mr. DEDEDE advise Astraea to go on an excursion around the world to better herself. This excursion found her to go to REVOLT Pro Combat before it merging and Astraea returning to Empire a different woman than she was before. Perhaps, she is different from the last time?
Gia Cervantes: I think Astraea knows what she has to do in order to walk out with the Freeweight Championship! I think she has it within her to win.
(“Intergalactic” — Beastie Boys plays as the crowd gives a positive reaction to Payton Darkstar who walks out with an innocent smile across her face. She looks determined as she looks around the sea of EAW fans.)
Gia Cervantes: Here is a woman who made an impression going up against Chelsea Crowe for the Specialists Championship during the second week of the merge, but it was not enough to walk away with the title.
SG1: Payton Darkstar can be someone that changes the pace of this entire match. If you have seen her hit a Supermassive Blackstar, then you know what this woman is capable of! Payton Darkstar made her presence known after the main event of REVOLT 2 by scouting Sienna Jade after her match with Lexi Sheckler, but will she make her presence known tonight?
(“Resurge” — Gone Is Gone plays as the crowd BOOS THE FUCK out of Sienna Jade, who walks out with the Freeweight Championship on her waist. She walks to the ring as she does not take her eyes off the competition.)
SG1: Sienna Jade, the Freeweight Champion! A woman who has overcome challenges like Ms. Extreme and Lexi Sheckler in order to keep that title in her grasps! She is in a clear disadvantage tonight facing both Payton Darkstar and Astraea Jordan.
Gia Cervantes: I agree, Sienna is in a disadvantage tonight, but she is smart and has overcome differences like this before. Will Sienna pull off a smart enough game plan and walkout still Freeweight Champion?
( A four spotlights shine on Sienna Jade, Jasmine Peyton, Astraea Jordan and Payton Darkstar.)
Jasmine Peyton: The following match is a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH for the REVOLT Pro Combat Freeweight Championship! Introducing first, from The Outer Rim of The Darkstar Nebula, she is “The Queen of Xeno Strong Style”, PAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYTONNNNNNNNNN DARRRRRKKKKKKKSTTTAAARRRRRRRRR!!
(The crowd cheers as Payton stands up in confidence.)
Jasminey Peyton: Introducing her opponents, first from Chicago, Illinois, ASSSSSSTRRRAAAEEEAAAAAAAA JOOOOOOOORRRRRDAAAAANNNNNN!!
(The crowd cheers as Astraea poses in confidence.)
Jasmine Peyton: Next, from San Diego, California, she is the “Rose From the Devil’s Garden” and the CURRENT REVOLT PRO COMBAT FREEWEIGHT CHAMPION, SIEEEEEENNNNNNAAAAAAAA JAAAAAAADEEEEEEEEE!!
(The crowd boos loudly for Sienna who does not care and raises her championship up before giving it to Jesse Carlton, the official of the match. Jesse shows the title personally to Payton and Astraea before she gives it to the timekeeper and rings the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gia Cervantes: This REVOLT Triple Threat Match for the Freeweight Championship is underway! Sienna Jade, a woman who defeated Ms. Extreme to become the very first Freeweight Champion has ran through her competition effortlessly! She managed to defeat Lexi Shecker in the main event of REVOLT 2. Astraea Jordan, a woman endorsed by the EAW Chairman of the Board, Mr. DEDEDE, a woman who went to an excursion, won titles and has returned to prove that she is much more different than when she left. Payton Darkstar, an alien who has found herself with the biggest opportunity of her entire career! She has nothing to her name, but that can all change by the end of this match up!
SG1: Gia, these three women are exchanging looks at one another! They are awaiting for one of them to make the first move of the match up and get this match underway! Sienna with a punch to Payton Darkstar! Before Payton can retaliate, Sienna slides underneath the ring and the crowd is booing the hell out of this woman! She grabs a steel chair from the time keeper’s area and sits down on it!
Sienna Jade: You go right ahead! I am saving my energy for the main event later! I’ll get to you two in a bit!
Astraea Jordan: Get your ass back in this ring!
SG1: PAYTON DARKSTAR ROLLS UP ASTRAEA JORDAN! PAYTON IS GOING TO GET AN UPSET IN THE EARLY PORTION OF THIS MATCH! NO! ASTRAEA IS ABLE TO ROLL HERSELF OUT OF THE WAY!

PAYTON IS HOLDING HER RIBS IN PAIN AS ASTRAEA HOLDS HER HANDS OPEN AS SHE FEEDS INTO THE REACTION OF THE CROWD! IT’S A MIXED REACTION FROM THE CROWD SURPRISING AS IT SEEMS LIKE THIS CROWD IS LEANING TOWARDS PAYTON!
Gia Cervantes: Astraea pick up Payton and connects with a fisherman’s suplex! She then picks up Payton and goes for another fisherman’s suplex! She picks up Payton up again and goes for a third fisherman’s suplex! She stops there as she picks up Payton and goes for an Olympic slam! What a beautiful Olympic slam by Astraea Jordan! Payton Darkstar seems to be in some trouble. Meanwhile, Sienna Jade is watching the match like she’s part of the EAW Universe! It doesn’t seem like she’s quite concerned that she could lose her title and she’s not even participating in the match! Payton gets up and Astraea with a big boot to Payton Darkstar who lies flat on her back! Astraea is having a fantastic showing in this early part of the match up! Astraea bounces to the ropes and connects with a knee drop on Payton! Payton is down, but Astraea is not putting her away just yet! She keeps eyeing Sienna Jade, who is ringside watching the match! Astraea is holding down the middle rope, granting access to get back into the ring, but Sienna is not moving yet.
Sienna Jade: You keep beating up that freak! I’ll come into the match when I am ready to do so!
SG1: Astraea turns around! Payton with a clothesline! No! Astraea grabs her braid! She makes Payton with it! No! Payton backs away and scoots herself away from Astraea! There is no one in EAW who wants to get smacked around by Astraea Jordan’s long braid! I’ve heard from some of the girls in the back that her braid should be illegal! It is almost like having some sort of weapon in the ring! Astraea runs and connects with a sliding forearm smash on Payton! Payton’s face collides with Astraea’s forearm as Astraea plants Payton down on her back!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!!
Gia Cervantes:Payton kicks out at one! Astraea seems unfazed as she gets Payton up and whips her to the ropes! Astraea performs a handstand before elbowing Payton in the chest! Payton begins to stumble forward, but Astraea connects with a reverse roundhouse kick that knocks Payton in the ground! Astraea grabs Payton and connects with an exploder suplex! Payton is thrown across the ring almost like she was a bag of feathers as Astraea gets in her knees, grinning at her work so far! Payton tries to pick herself together by using the ropes! Astraea crotches down and gestures for Payton to come at her! It seems like Astraea is paying tribute to one of the men that trained her, Mr. DEDEDE! The Gawd has taken out so many of his opponents with that deadly spear and it seems like Astraea Jordan will be taking out Payton Darkstar out and claiming herself the Freeweight Championship! Payton has no idea that Astraea is standing right in front of her! This is not going to be pretty at all, but Payton turns around!
SG1: SPEEEAAAARRRRR!! SPEAR RIGHT TO PAYTON DARKSTAR!
Gia Cervantes: SUPERKICK OUT OF NOWHERE TO ASTRAEA JORDAN! SIENNA JADE HAS FOUND HERSELF IN THIS MATCH FOR THE FIRST TIME AS SHE ROLLS ASTRAEA OUT OF THE RING AND STEALS THE PIN ON PAYTON! SIENNA CANNOT RETAIN LIKE THIS! THIS IS WRONG IN SO MANY LEVELS!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
SG1: Payton kicks out on two! Sienna kicks out as Sienna jaw drops completely as she looks at Jesse Carlton in shock in disbelief! Sienna is trying to clarify with our official that it was a two count, but Jesse clarifies that it was a two count indeed. Sienna is trying to hide her anger with a smile that could cut you if she comes near you. Sienna quickly begins to knee Payton in her midsection. She is kneeling Payton several times before Jesse has to step in to stop her from inflicting more punishment onto Payton! Sienna rolls her eyes in response before she continues her torture onto Payton. Sienna grabs Payton and quickly applies a headlock. Payton is up on her feet, but Sienna still maintains a good hold onto Payton. Payton is trying to reach for the ropes, but Sienna continues to hold her back as she inflicts more pressure onto the neck!
Crowd: LET’S GO PAYTON!
Also Crowd: F— YOU, SIENNA!
Sienna Jade: F— YOU, TOO!
(Sienna Jade’s jaw drops in disbelief)
Gia Cervantes: This crowd is not a fan of Sienna Jade at all. Payton Darkstar is reaching for the ropes, but Sienna keeps holding her back. No! Payton has her feet pressed to the ground and step-by-step, she is getting towards the ropes! With her free elbow, Payton begins elbowing Sienna Jade by the face, allowing her to break the hold just enough for her to get back into this match! PAYTON BREAKS FREE! PAYTON BOUNCES TO THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A DROPKICK! THE DROPKICK SENDS SIENNA TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING! SIENNA COMES RUNNING AND PAYTON CONNECTS WITH AN ARMDRAG, FLIPPING SIENNA RIGHT OVER TO A SEATED POSITION. PAYTON BOUNCES TO THE ROPES BEHIND HER AND QUICKLY CONNECTS WITH A LOW DROPKICK TO SIENNA’S BACK! SIENNA IS DOWN AS PAYTON STANDS TO THE SIDE OF HER, LOOKS DOWN ON SIENNA BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A STANDING MOONSAULT! Payton goes for a cover!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!
SG1: Sienna Jade kicks out! Payton sighs as she picks Sienna up and connects with a chop to Sienna’s chest. Payton continues to chop Sienna’s chest until she makes her back to the side ropes! This is when Payton whips Sienna to the other side ropes! Sienna comes at her, but Payton connects with a dragon screw leg whip on Sienna! Sienna is holding her right leg in pain as Payton grabs Sienna’s right leg, twists it with her own leg and begins to knee it, almost getting back from the knees that Sienna delivered to her midsection earlier in the match! Sienna is crying out in pain as Payton continues to work well on Sienna’s leg! Payton grabs Sienna by her leg and drags her near the corner! Catapult to the turnbuckle by Payton Darkstar! Sienna’s face clashes with the turnbuckle! Payton follows that with reverse roundhouse kick, which throws Sienna out of the ring!
Gia Cervantes: SPEEEEEEARRRRRRRRR!! ASTRAEA JORDAN IS NOT OUT OF THE GAME JUST YET AS SHE CONNECTED WITH A SPEAR TO SIENNA JADE AS SHE WAS FLIPPING OUTSIDE OF THE RING! THE SPEAR WAS OUT OF NOWHERE AS PAYTON DARKSTAR CONNECTS WITH A SUICIDE DIVE, KNOCKING DOWN ASTRAEA OUTSIDE OF THE RING! These three women are now outside and the possibilities for this to get violent have increased! Surprisingly enough, Astraea is the first one up on her feet! Sienna Jade follows her after, slowly, but is looking like she is still dealing with the impacts of the spear by Astraea! Astraea goes to punch Sienna! No! Wait? Sienna is shielding her face from any more punishment? What the hell is going on?
Sienna Jade: You’re smart, Astraea! There is no doubt that we are both born to be champion, how about we get rid of (points at a down Payton) her and leave this match down to the two of us? Let’s make a pact right now, what do you say?
Astraea Jordan: Cool, just one thing.
Sienna Jade: Anything.
SG1: ASTRAEA JORDAN CONNECTS WITH THE FREE SMOKE, THE REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE KICK, FLOORS SIENNA JADE TO THE GROUND! SIENNA JADE IS NOT MOVING AND ASTRAEA IS TRASH TALKING TO SIENNA JADE!
Astraea Jordan: #ASTRAEABETTER YOU DENSE ASS BITCH! I WORK ALONE UNDERNEATH THESE SITUATIONS!
SG1: Sienna Jade is down and Astraea picks up Sienna by her hair and whips her over to our announcer’s table! Astraea gets on top of the table as well, but it is unknown what Astraea is planning to do next. I think, that it is best that Gia and I distance ourselves from the mess! As we are looking from the action a few inches away from us, we see that Astraea has Sienna in a powerbomb position! It seems like Astraea is planning to for for the Late Registration! Astraea has Sienna up for the snap powerbomb cutter! LAAAAAAAATEEEEEEE REEEGISSSSTRAAAATTTIOONNNN!! ASTRAEA WITH THE LATE REGISTRATION ON SIENNA JADE ON THE ANNOUNCER’S TABLE! THIS WAS ENOUGH TO BREAK THE ANNOUNCER’S TABLE AS BOTH WOMEN ARE NOT LYING ON TOP OF THE BROKEN TABLE!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Gia Cervantes: That strength by Astraea Jordan! It has been very impressive tonight at Terminus! Our official and some of the medical team are checking on these women to see if they can continue! Astraea is pushing some of the medical personal to the side. She doesn’t want to be helped to the back, she wants to fight now! Astraea stands up as she shoves some of the medical team to the side in order to get to Sienna Jade! QUANTUMMMMM LEEEEEEEEAP! THE SUPERWOMAN PUNCH CONNECTS RIGHT TO THE FACE OF ASTRAEA JORDAN! PAYTON DARKSTAR IS STILL IN THIS MATCH UP! PAYTON IS UNLOADING A SERIES OF RAPID AND FIERY FISTS ONTO ASTRAEA JORDAN! ASTRAEA IS DOING THE SAME THING AS ASTRAEA KNEES PAYTON IN THE MID SECTION! ASTRAEA WHIPS PAYTON, BUT PAYTON IS ABLE TO STAND HER GROUND AS SHE CONNECTS WITH ELBOW SHOT TO THE CHIN OF ASTRAEA JORDAN! Payton decides to whip Astraea to the barricade, but Astraea stops in her tracks and whips Payton onto the barricade instead! Astraea takes a few steps away! It looks like she’ll be going for that spear again. This time, it will be towards Payton Darkstar! Payton tries to get up! Astraea launches herself to Payton! SPEEEEEAARRRRRRRRRR!!
SG1: No! Payton saw the spear coming! Payton moves out of the way as Astraea can’t stop her momentum and collides with the barricade! The barricade is broken with Astraea in the rubble again!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
SG1: I think that may have been enough to take Astraea out of the equation for the time being! Out of nowhere, Sienna Jade snapmares Payton from behind, grabs her by the back of her top and rolls her back into the ring! Sienna goes clawing the back of Payton Darkstar, which gets the young one to yelp in pain! Sienna tries to go for a headlock, but Payton is able to stop her before she finds herself in a headlock again! Payton throws Sienna towards the side ropes, but Sienna is able to stop herself dead in her tracks! Payton runs to Sienna, who then connects with an elbow directly towards her face! Payton holds her face as Sienna bounces to the side ropes and connects with a low dropkick! This was enough to knock Payton to her knees! Sienna follows that up with an enziguri! She symbolizes for the end of this match! The crowd boos loudly as Sienna rolls her eyes and picks up Payton! For those that are not familiar with this one finisher, Sienna calls this the RDG, the bridging fisherman’s suplex! RRRRRDDDDDDDGGGGGGG! It connects!
Gia Cervantes: No! It does not connect! Instead, Payton counters with her own northern lights suplex! Sienna is able to bridge out of the northern lights, spin herself around and kick Payton in the stomach! Sienna bounces towards the side ropes and connects with a knee buster before grabbing Payton and connecting with a Clapback, a back-to-back backbreaker! What a clapback by Sienna! Payton is on the ground as Sienna points to the top turnbuckle! It seems like Sienna is going to do a little risk taking of her own! Sienna approaches the top rope, gets on top of it and situates herself! She looks at Payton to see if she has moved yet, but Payton is slowly starting to get back on her feet! Sienna with a springboard dropkick! RAAAWWWWWW SIEEEEENNAAAAAA!!
SG1:PAYTON WITH A ROLLING HEEL KICK! THE CONTINUUM HAS BEEN CONNECTED AS SIENNA JADE FALLS DOWN! PAYTON QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER! NEW FREEWEIGHT CHAMPION!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!! THR–
SG1: SIENNA KICKS OUT! Payton looks at Jesse Carlton in a little disbelief, but she signs and decides to pick up Sienna! It seems like Payton was expecting a three count there! She almost managed to get a huge upset on the Freeweight Champion! Payton begins to kick behind the leg of Sienna Jade! Payton continues to kick behind the leg of Sienna! Payton stops until she delivers one last kick that knocks Sienna off the mat she stood on! Payton turns around! HAIR WHIP! ASTRAEA JORDAN’S DEADLY HAIR WHIP COLLIDES WITH THE FLESH OF PAYTON DARKSTAR! PAYTON IS ON HER KNEES AS ASTRAEA JORDAN CONTINUES TO WHIP THE PAYTON’S BACK WITH HER BRAID! JUST LIKE STATED EARLIER, THAT BRAID SHOULD BE A WEAPON! THERE IS NO WAY THAT HER BRAID SHOULD BE LEGAL IN THIS MATCH UP! SIENNA RUNS TO ASTRAEA, BUT SIENNA IS MET WITH THE BRAID ON HER ARM! SIENNA’S ARM BEGINS TO BLEED AS ASTRAEA CONTINUES TO WACK HER WITH HER BRAID ALL OVER HER BODY!
Astraea Jordan: #GETCHAASSWHOOPED
Gia Cervantes: Astraea kicks Sienna in the stomach before getting her in a DDT position and connecting with an impaler DDT! Astraea gets hair braid and begins to wrap it around the neck of Sienna Jade! Is Astraea gonna choke Sienna? Astraea gets on Sienna’s back in a camel clutch position and she has her braid tied around Sienna’s neck before applying pressure on Sienna! Sienna is gasping for air as Astraea is crackling! Sienna is refusing to quit the match up! She refuses to end her reign as Freeweight Champion! She is thinking of some sort of way to get out of this submission hold! She is scratching and clawing to the nearest bottom rope, but it seems like Astraea has her locked in good! Sienna is panicking and screaming! She is losing air each moment the braid is wrapped around her neck! I really think that Sienna is going to need to tap out to Astraea before she fades! It’s not going to be worth losing the title when you have no control to do so! Sienna is stuck! She needs to tap out! Sienna has her hand up! She is ready to submit!
SG1: Payton Darkstar with a snapmare to Astraea Jordan, breaking the submission hold in the process! Sienna goes rolling into the outside and begins to cough for air back! Payton and Astraea, just like how it was in the beginning of the match! Astraea gets up angrily as Payton, looks like she has been through so much hell tonight. All of these women are, but it seems like Payton has taken the most beating out of the three women! Astraea gestures to Payton to come at her as Payton does so as fast as possible! Astraea with a clothesline–no! Payton ducks and bounces to the ropes! She goes for a crossbody, but Astraea is able to pick her up! Astraea with a snap scoop powerslam! Astraea goes cover the cover!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!! THR–

Astraea needs to tap out! Sienna deepens the armbar more as she bends Astraea’s arm back! She has full intentions to break Astraea’s arm! Sienna is deepening the armbar even more as Astraea is crying out in pain! Wait? Astraea flips Sienna over! Rollup by Astraea!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOO!!
SG1: ASTRAEA JORDAN KICKS OUT! SIENNA IS SEETHING BETWEEN HER TEETH! SHE NEEDS TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO GET ASTRAEA EITHER DOWN FOR THE THREE COUNT, TAP OUT OR GET HER OUT OF THE EQUATION ENOUGH FOR HER TO WEAR DOWN PAYTON AND RETAIN HER TITLE! ASTRAEA IS HOLDING HER LEFT AIR AS SHE IS TRYING TO RUB THE PAIN AWAY–SIENNA GRABS ASTRAEA BACK AGAIN? WHAT IS ASTRAEA GOING FOR? IT LOOKS LIKE SHE IS TRYING TO GO FOR TEMPTRESS! SHE IS GOING FOR THE DOUBLE UNDERHOOK CROSSFACE! ASTRAEA IS TRYING TO FIGHT THE SUBMISSION MOVE, BUT SIENNA SEEMS TO HAVE THE SUBMISSION MOVE LOCKED AGAIN! SHE HAS ASTRAEA IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! SIENNA HAS MOVED ON FROM APPLYING PRESSURE ONTO ASTRAEA’S LEFT HER TO FOCUSING ON BREAKING HER RIBS WITH THE TEMPTRESS! ASTRAEA HAS NOWHERE TO GO! SHE HAS NOWHERE TO GO! ASTRAEA NEED TO TAP OUT! ASTRAEA LIFTS HER HAND UP AND SHE SMACKS IT DOWN TO THE FLOOR!
Gia Cervantes: PAYTON BREAKS THE SUBMISSION UP! HOW IN THE HELL IS THIS FRAIL AILEN STILL STANDING? SHE HAS CONFIRMED THAT SHE IS NOT HUMAN. NO HUMAN WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET THROUGH THE AMOUNT OF BEATINGS SHE HAS SUFFERED IN THIS MATCH! Astraea rolls out of the ring to check out her arm! Payton quickly gets up! Knee to Sienna’s stomach! She turns around and connects with a switchblade kick before she whips her to the ropes! Sienna counters and instead whips Payton to the corner! Payton holds on to the ropes on the side! Sienna runs and tries to connect with a giant knee to Payton’s chin; however, Payton is able to move out of the way and counter with her own giant knee to Sienna’s chin! Sienna holds her chin in pain as Payton chops Sienna back into the corner again! The crowd is wooing with each chop delivered as Sienna’s chest is showing to become red! After one last, mean chop, Sienna falls face forward! Astraea Jordan finds herself back in the fray with a with a huge forearm to Payton Darkstar! Astraea stands on the second row of the side ropes and connects with a springboard moonsault on not only Payton, but Sienna Jade, who tried to stop the move from connecting! Both women are on the ground! Sienna and Payton are down! She needs to choose one girl to go for the cover on! She goes for the cover on Payton!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOO!! THR–
SG1: PAYTON DARKSTAR KICKS OUT! QUICKLY, ASTRAEA GOES FOR THE COVER ON SIENNA!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOO!! THR–
Gia Cervantes: Sienna Jade kicks out as well! Astraea gets on her knees and places her hands on her hips! She ponders her next step as she gets on the top rope! She situates herself on the top rope! Sienna and Payton are lying on their backs with no clue of what is going to hit them! It looks like Astraea is going for her ultimate finisher, Love Sosa, the 450 splash! If Astraea is able to hit the finisher on one of these girls for the three count! This is over! Astraea hits this and the match is over! There is no kicking out of that move! Wait? Payton gets up on the second row of the turnbuckle! She throws a punch at Astraea’s face as Astraea throws one back at her! Payton throws another punch at Astraea and Sienna Jade gets up and climbs on the second row of the turnbuckle as well! It looks like Sienna and Payton are going to work with each other to eliminate Astraea from the equation! It looks like they are going for a double team on the superplex! Payton and Sienna superplex Astraea! No! Astraea is able to keep her position on top of the turnbuckle! Astraea is not moving whatsoever! She is going to fight! She is going to fight until the very end! Astraea headbutts Payton, then she headbutts Sienna! She headbutts Payton and then headbutts Sienna again! Over and over again, she is headbutting these girls with the hope that she knocks one of them off the the turnbuckle! If she can knock Payton or Sienna, she can focus on the other!
SG1: PAYTON GOES FLYING OFF THE TURNBUCKLE AND INTO THE MAT! JESSE CARLTON GOES TO CHECK ON PAYTON DARKSTAR! SIENNA TRIES TO HEADBUTT ASTRAEA WHO INSTEAD HEADBUTTS HER BACK! SIENNA WITH AN EYE POKE TO ASTRAEA! THE REFEREE WAS TOO BUSY FOCUSING ON PAYTON TO PAY ATTENTION TO SIENNA AND ASTRAEA IN THE RING! ASTRAEA CAN’T SEE WHAT SIENNA HAS ASTRAEA’S ARM OVER HER SHOULDERS! IT LOOKS LIKE SIENNA IS GOING TO GO FOR AN RDG FROM THE TURNBUCKLE! ASTRAEA KEEPS PUNCHING SIENNA IN THE MIDSECTION, BUT SIENNA IS NOT MOVING! RRRRRRRRRRDDDDDDDDDDGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!! SIENNA JADE WITH AN RDG FROM THE TURNBUCKLE THIS HAS TO BE IT! SIENNA RETAINS! SIENNA RETAINS!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEE!!
Gia Cervantes: PAYTON BREAKS UP THE COUNT IN THE LAST SECOND! PAYTON STANDS UP, SIENNA RUNS TO PAYTON WITH A LARIAT! PAYTON DUCKS! ASTRAEA IS STARTING TO GET UP AND STAND BEHIND SIENNA, SIENNA HAS NO CLUE WHAT IS GOING TO HIT HER! SUPERMASSIVE BLACKSTAR! SUPERMASSIVE BLACKSTAR! THE SNAP JUMPING SIDE KICK TO THE JAW HITS SIENNA!
SG1: No! Sienna ducks out of the way! The Supermassive Blackstar hits Astraea instead! Astraea crashes against the mat! Astraea rolls out of the ring. S he is out of it! Astraea Jordan is out of it! Sienna waves bye to Astraea! Sienna is making a mockery of Astraea being taken out of the equation! Sienna is oblivious to what is behind her! Payton is prepared to go for a second Supermassive Blackstar of the night! Sienna turns around! SUUUUUUUPEEEEEEER MAAAAAASIIIIIVEEEEEEEE BLAAAAAAAACKKKKKSTAAAARRRR!!
Gia Cervantes: Sienna moves out of the way! Payton runs to Sienna! Sienna with a Witches Hammer! The ripcord rolling elbow that knocks Payton off her feet a bit! Sienna springs for the side ropes and RAAAAAAAAAAAW SIIIIEEEEEENNNNNAAAAA! The springboard dropkick connects Payton is out! Sienna goes for the cover! She makes sure that both legs are hooked and Payton’s hands are away from the ropes! Jesse Carlton gets in position for the count!
Jesse Carlton: ONEEEEEEEEE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!!
(Astraea slides back into the ring.)
Jesse Carlton: THREEEEEEEE!!
(Astraea realizes that she got back into the ring too late.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Resurge” plays as Sienna Jade falls to her knees, trying to catch her breath as Payton rolls out of the ring. The camera pans to Astraea Jordan frustrated about not making it to the ring in time.)
Jasmine Peyton: The winner of this match and STILL REVOLT Freeweight Champion, SIIIIIEEEEEEENNNNNNNAAAAAAAA JAAAADDDEEEEEE!!!!
SG1: What a match! All three women brought everything they had into this match, but in the end of the day, Sienna was the smarter person going into the match. This is why she is the Freeweight Champion! She strategizes for this match like a champion should. She picked her spots and it worked in the end!
(Replays of Sienna getting involved in the match for the first time, Astraea’s spears, the Late Registration through the announcer’s table, Astraea missing her attempt of spearing Payton through the barricade, Sienna connecting with the Temptress, the RDG from the top rope, the Supermassive Blackstar meant for Sienna, but delivered to Astraea and Sienna hitting the Raw Sienna to retain.)
(Camera pans back into the ring where Kassidy Heart is in the ring helping Sienna back to her feet and giving her a big hug.)
Gia Cervantes: Payton and Astraea both fought their hardest in this match! I thought either of those girls would have walked away with the title, but just like you said, Sienna was the smarter person going into the match! Now, will Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart become the first Empire Tag Team Champions? You’ll find that out in our main event!

(Empire backstage correspondent Cori Simmons is standing backstage with Zakkii.)
Cori: I’m here with one of Empire’s best and brightest, Zakkii! Now last week you said that you was going to reveal your final opponent at Pain for Pride, tonight! Are you ready to share with the EAW Universe on who it’s going to be?
(Zakkii smiles for a moment)
Zakkii: Yes, I am. When I think about my final match in EAW, only she comes to mind. It’s someone I had the pleasure of working with several times throughout my career. She’s been a good friend and a close personal confidant of mine. We go way back, farther than people think.
(Cori thinks for a moment)
Cori: Is it Stephanie Matsuda?
(Zakkii blinks a couple of times, and laughs)
Zakkii: No, no, no. Thank god, no! No offense, but I rather drink bleach! Silly Cori, isn’t it obvious? My opponent is none other than my former tag partner, the Unbreakable herself…
(Zakkii leans forward)
Zakkii: Azumi. Goto.
(Zakkii smiles and waves just before walking away)
Zakkii: Ja ne!
(Cori Simmons stands there for a moment, shocked at what she just heard)
Cori: There you have it. Zakkii’s final opponent at Pain for Pride will be none other than Azumi Goto!
(A video package of the events leading up to the EAW Women’s World Championship is shown including Madison Kaline announcing cashing in her Empress of Elite crown on Stephanie Matsuda at Terminus. Matsuda accepts and the next few clips show their heated argument during the Terminus press conference)
(“This Could be anywhere in the World” by Alexisonfire plays as Madison Kaline walks out, wearing her Empress of Elite crown. She looks around, paying no mind to the chorus of boos.)
SG1: After a brief hiatus, Madison Kaline has returned to Empire! This time, she has a goal to take the EAW Women’s World Championship from the hands of its current holder – Stephanie Matsuda!
Gia: Madison has held the Vixens Championship, which now has been retroactively declared a women’s world championship! She’s experienced in high stakes matches such as this. The question is – will Stephanie be ready?)
(Madison climbs into the ring. “Kill Bill (remix)” by Archie & Sizzle plays as Stephanie Matsuda walks to a cheering crowd out alone, with the Women’s World Championship over her shoulder. Cloud slowly walks down the ramp, eyeing down Madison)
SG1: The Iconic War Queen herself, Stephanie Matsuda.
Gia: After a successful defense against Jael Arcana-Rosario, Cloud is now about to fight this season’s Empress of Elite in a match that should have happened at King of Elite! But we all know why that didn’t happen…
SG1: What are you trying to imply Gia? :eyes:
Gia: Nothing. Just that Maddie should have left some people alone…
SG1: Heh. Well Stephanie declared her intentions to become the greatest World Champion…period. This is second opportunity to backup that claim!
(Stephanie climbs into the ring, glaring at Madison Kaline.)
Jasmine: The following match is scheduled for One Fall! And it is for the EAW Women’s World Championship! First, the challenger! Fighting out of Tampa Bay, FL! Weighing in at 120lbs! Your Empress of Elite…Madison Kaline!
(Maddie takes off her crown and hands it to the ref)
Jasmine: Her opponent! From Brooklyn, NY! But born in TOKYO, JAPAN!
(The crowd starts to cheer)
Jasmine: Weighing in at 132lbs! She is your EAW Women’s World Champion! “The Iconic War Queen”, Stephanie MATSUUUUUUDAAAAA!
(Stephanie takes off her belt and hands it off to the ref. She meets Madison in the center of the ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: Referee Jesse Carlton has called for the bell! Madison Kaline and Stephanie Matsuda are on opposite ends, carefully watching each other. The tension is so thick, you can cut it with a knife! Stephanie and Maddie initiate a collar-and-elbow tie-up! It looks like a stalemate as both women refuse to budge! Matsuda may look jacked as hell, but Maddie is stronger than most people think! Stephanie tries to get Kaline up against the ropes, but Madison uses the momentum to whip her to the ropes! Cloud bounces back – Kaline gets caught under the chin with a spinning wheel kick!
Gia: It looked like Madison misread her opponent, as if she was expecting a low dropkick! Cloud usually doesn’t open up with such a flashy attack. Matsuda wastes no time getting Madison to her feet and flipping her on her rear with a snapmare! Soccer kick to the back for good measure!
SG1: Matsuda is already establishing dominance in even before we reach the first minute mark! She took advantage of what Maddie would expect from her, and used it against her opponent! She’s taking her time, strolling around the ring with arrogance, while Kaline is holding her lower back! Matsuda returns to her opponent and blocks the forearm attempt! She fires back with several forearms of her own! Madison finds her herself DEADLIFTED INTO THE AIR! Matsuda has her in the vertical suplex position, allowing the blood to rush to Madison’s head!
Gia: Cloud is displaying quite a feat of strength as she balances Maddie above her head! She drops an arm, keeping Maddie delayed up with ONE HAND! Cloud falls back…VERTICAL SUPLEX! Matsuda drapes herself over Kaline!
SG1: Maddie gets the shoulder up at one! Cloud gets up to a knee, expecting not to win too easily. It’s like she’s using head games to get into Maddie’s head! She picks up her opponent for the Irish whip, Madison rebounds – she flips out of the Japanese armdrag and continues her momentum! CLOUD DUCKS UNDER THE SUDDEN AFTERLIFE CLOTHESLINE! She grabs the arm and twists – EAT DEFEAT! MADISON IS STUNNED, and is stumbling about! She’s starting to fall down – MATSUDA’S SLIDING FOREARM CATCHES MADISON ON THE SIDE OF THE HEAD AS SHE’S FALLING! Madison hits the canvas, rolling! Like a tiger upon its prey, Matsuda leaps atop her and keeps Kaline lying on her stomach has she applies a classic sleeper hold!
Gia: Matsuda is delivering an unorthodox offense to keep the challenger guessing! It doesn’t look like Madison wasn’t ready for this! The new champion has come out the gates swinging!
SG1: Let me tell you something Gia – Matsuda was preparing for this match ever since she put the strap around her waist! She knew it was only a matter of time before the true Empress of Elite has turned her attention back to her! Cloud is now in control – just as she predicted! Madison needs to let go of her emotions if she wants to walk out of this alive!
Gia: Madison is attempting to get back to her feet, but Cloud refuses to let her up! The ref is checking in on her, asking if she wants to quit! Maddie shakes her head, refusing to give in! With Cloud on her back, Madison is getting to her feet! She’s trying to find her footing! Cloud plants herself on the mat, trying to keep higher ground, but it’s too late! Maddie slips out from the sleep and counters with a hammerlock! Cloud reverses with a wristlock, But Maddie is trying to set Cloud up for a wristlock After- HURRICARANA COUNTER! WAIT MADDIE LANDS ON HER FEET! Cloud ducks under the spinning backfist! STO! Cloud goes for another cover!
SG1: Maddie kicks out again! She needs to figure something out, find a way to infiltrate Matsuda’s well planned offense! She seems to have an answer for anything Madison throws at her! This is a much different Cloud than we’ve seen at Bloodletter! She’s not someone trying to keep up with the champ, but she’s the champ holding down her court!
Gia: All Madison can do right now is fight through the pain until she can find an opening! Cloud picks up up by her hair, ignoring the Jesse Carlton’s warnings! HAMMER THROW TO THE CORNER AND MADISON SLUMPS DOWN! Matsuda has a wild look in her eyes…we know what’s coming next! She signals to the Japanese audience by pointing at Madison! Matsuda charges forward – MADISON DODGES THE CANNONBALL! CLOUD FLIPS OUT ONTO THE APRON! Madison goes for a forearm! Matsuda blocks! A surprise rope-assisted kick to the face of Kaline! Matsuda springboards! Madison dives forward against the ropes! Matsuda lands on her feet from the moonsault attempt! She catches Madison’s foot! She lifts Matsuda high above her shoulders…SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! THEIR BODIES BOUNCED FROM THE SHEER IMPACT OF THE WAR QUEEN’S POWER! Matsuda has the pin!
Gia: MADDIE KICKS OUT AGAIN! Cloud is in disbelief!
SG1: This is Madison’s willpower coming into play! She waited so long for this match, that she’s not going to go down that easily!
Gia: Cloud is back on her feet, leaning against the ropes! While she has yet to take a hit, she’s exhausting herself trying to stay one step ahead of her opponent! It’s not just a physical thing either – her mind must be taking its toll on her by how fast it’s racing right now! Stephanie stands up, bringing her gloved hands together to show off the patented ‘C9’ symbol! She’s signaling for the Cloud 9! She wants to end things as quickly as possible! Maddie’s still on her back writhing in pain! Matsuda climbs up the nearest turnbuckle, ready to take flight! She slowly stands on the top rope, balancing herself! Cloud takes off! MADDIE HAS THE LEGS UP AS CLOUD MAKES CONTACT WITH THE CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR! HER STERNUM MADE CONTACT WITH MADDIE’S KNEES! The tide has turned!
SG1: Cloud is curled up in a ball, feeling the consequences of unleashing her best move way too early! Maybe Madison is right about Matsuda being too egotistical, too ahead of herself! Kaline has some fans in the audience, cheering her on! As if it’s by her will alone, Madison is getting to her feet, picking up Cloud with her! Simple snap suplex from the Mistress of Death! She’s slow to get back up, but it looks like she’s taking her time with Cloud!
Gia: Madison isn’t stupid – she knows that Stephanie’s strength lies is turning the tables on her opponents out of nowhere! As she gets close, Stephing attempts an elbow! Madison counters it into an armlock! She’s in total control, as she guides Matsuda back to her feet! She transitions to a waitslock – BEAUTIFUL GERMAN SUPLEX BY KALINE! She has the bridge!
SG1: Matsuda’s up! Man oh man, these women are putting on a showcase of their best moves! Kaline is showing that she’s just as much as a technical wizard as Cloud! She wraps her arms around Cloud for a hug and DOES A DEADLIFT OF HER OWN! SLAMS HER DOWN WITH A BELLY-TO-BELLY! WOW! Cloud is feeling the effects of Madison Kaline’s underrated power! Maddie grabs her by the hair, saying some choice words that I can’t repeat! CLOUD SPITS IN HER FACE! MADDIE IS INFURIATED!
SG1: Ow! You could hear that smack echo throughout the entire arena! Matsuda is rolling along the mat, holding her face! She’s out on the apron, using the ropes to try and collect herself! AXE BOMBER BY KALINE AND CLOUD GOES FLYING OFF THE APRON ONTO THE FLOOR! Madison knew she couldn’t get a full Afterlife clothesline, so she settled for an Axe Bomber instead!
Gia: Madison Kaline is the Queen of the Clothesline – and lariats fall under that category as well! Her small size matched with a strong lower base and hidden strength catches everyone off guard! Kaline doesn’t seem like she’s finished as she climbs out to the apron. Mastuda is getting to her feet, stunned from the surprising reversal of fortune! Madison turns her back to Cloud…MADDIE BOMB! SHE CATCHES CLOUD WITH THE APRON MODIFICATION OF HER SIGNATURE MOONSAULT! And The Empress of Elite lands on her feet! What showmanship!
(A replay of Maddie’s apron moonsault is shown, showing the surprised look on Matsuda’s face)
SG1: The crowd has gone from one-sided to MIXED! The road to the main event has been one filled with strife for Madison Kaline! She’s showing the world that she belongs here just as much as Stephanie Matsuda!
Gia: Jesse Carlton has begun the count and Madison rolls Cloud back into the ring! She slides in and assumes a ready position as Cloud pushes up to her hands and knees! The killer instinct in Madison’s eyes…she wants to go for it a second time! Maddies charges forward!
Gia: LAST SURPRISE!!! CLOUD WITH THE LAST SURPRISE SLING BLADE COUNTER!!!! BOTH WOMEN ARE ON THE MAT, EXHAUSTED! THE CROWD IN YOKOHAMA ARENA IS GOING NUTS! STEPHANIE MATSUDA HAS FOUND A COUNTER TO THE AFTERLIFE IN HER LAST SURPRISE SIGNATURE – ONE THAT WAS PASSED DOWN TO HER FROM HER MENTOR MISS MANAMI!
SG1: Both women can barely move, but it looks like they’re using each other for support to get back to their feet! Their foreheads are pressed together, their mouths gritting their teeth as they fight through the pain!
Gia: Matsuda hits Maddie with a forearm smash!
SG1: Maddie returns the favor with a smack across the cheek!
Gia: Matsuda with a second forearm smash!
SG1: Another smack from Kaline!
SG1: Maddie staggers back…MATSUDA’S ON THE ASSAULT! FOREARM AFTER FOREARM! She’s wailing on Maddie like a maniac! Cloud hops back – SUPERKICK! Maddie falls between the middle and top ropes ad Cloud dashes to the opposite end for momentum and comes charging back! CLOUD TRIGGER! Matsuda hits the bicycle knee against the back of Maddie’s neck! The Mistress is holding her neck, coughing up a storm! Matsuda laughs at her opponent’s torment as she inches closer! She bends over to grab Maddie – MADDIE’S LEGS GRABS CLOUD AROUND HER NECK! ONE LEG IS ON CLOUD’S BACK, THE OTHER AGAINST THEIR NECK! SHE HAS CLOUD’S ARM! I NEVER SEEN HER DO THIS BEFORE!
Gia: It looks like Madison has applied some kind of modified gogoplata! Some calls it the Hell’s Gate, popularized by HADES THE HELLRAISER!! MADDIE IS EVOLVING! SHE’S UTILIZING A SUBMISSION TO TAKE OUT THE CHAMP!
SG1: Cloud doesn’t look that good as her face is turning purple! She’s trying to fight out of it, but I doubt she’s ever been in a submission like this! Maddie has done her homework! She knew she could catch Matsuda is a submission she’s unfamiliar with! Cloud is on one knee, but she’s fighting back! She needs to breakout of this before she fades! Madison knows this as she’s fighting with her life to keep Cloud locked in her hold! Wait…What’s Cloud doing!? It looks like she’s adjusting herself! She’s…SHE’S LIFTING MADISON IN THE AIR! BUCKLE BOMB FROM MATSUDA! WHAT POWER! MADDIE’S ON THE MAT AND CLOUD IS FREE FROM DEATH’S GRASP! MADDIE’S NECK HAS STRUCK THE MIDDLE TURNBUCKLE AND SHE’S HOLDING IT IN PAIN AS SHE ROLLS OUT TO THE APRON!
Gia: Looks like Cloud is slowly following her as she is now out on the apron as well! Madison’s in a daze; I don’t even know how she can stand in the condition she’s in! Cloud lifts her leg – DRAGON SCREW OFF THE APRON! Maddie goes tumbling out onto the mat! It looks like Matsuda is shifting her focus!
SG1: Cloud is realizing to make Maddie’s Afterlife less effective she should go after the legs to affect her running speed. The War Queen has formulated a plan and is sticking to it. Matsuda hops down from the apron and approaches her opponent with caution in her eyes. She picks up Maddie and RAMS HER INTO THE BARRICADE! Ouch! Her shoulder took the brunt of the impact!
Gia: Cloud is slowing the pace for now, picking apart Kaline piece by piece. Look at the dead look in her eyes – I doubt there’s any mercy remaining! Cloud slowly makes her way over, looking like the goddamn terminator! Maddie strikes back with a forearm to the stomach! Cloud doubles over for a moment, but it’s enough for Maddie to follow-up a kick to the face, using her good leg! Cloud stumbles back as Kaline scrambles up the barricade!
Gia: Cloud goes after Maddie after shaking off that last kick – TORNADO DDT OFF THE BARRICADE! MADISON KALINE TURNING INTO A HUMAN FIDGET SPINNER, AS SHE SPUN AROUND WITH THE WAR QUEEN IN HER GRASP AND DROVE HER DOWN HEAD FIRST!
SG1: Madison Kaline still has plenty of tricks up her sleeve as she crawls away from Cloud, possibly creating some space between them! She seems to be headed towards the ring while Cloud tries to snap out of it!
SG1: Maddie slides into the ring, with Cloud following several feet away! I don’t know if it’s such a good idea for Matsuda to follow her opponent like this! Madison is already on her feet when Cloud climbs in. Maddie’s back in her ready stance! Wait, Cloud noticed too late! AFTERLIIIIIFE!!!
SG1: MADDIE’S ARM COLLIDES WITH MATSUDA’S SHIN AT THE LAST SECOND! THE IMPACT KNOCKS MASTUDA OFF TO THE SIDE! SHE’S HURT! MATSUDA IS HOLDING HER SHIN! MADISON THROWS HER ARM UP IN VICTORY! SHE SWITCHED FROM A CLOTHESLINE TO A LARIAT VERSION WHERE HER FOREARM COULD ABSORB MOST OF THE IMPACT FROM CLOUD’S ENZUIGIRI! WHAT GENIUS FROM THE EMPRESS OF ELITE! Stephanie Matsuda is beginning to see what got Maddie to the dance!
Gia: It looks like Cloud is also realizing just how devastating the Afterlife is! It’s been awhile since I’ve seen Maddie fight this hard – and smart! She’s playing to her strengths while dipping her foot in deep waters every now and then! Matsuda is holding her shin, wondering where it all went wrong! This is her second defense, and she’s already in trouble! Maddie’s feeling it as she rears back her good arm, preparing for another Afterlife! Cloud’s slower to get up this time, barely able to support herself on that shin of hers –
Gia: LAST SURPRISE!!!!
SG1: BOTH WOMEN COLLIDE WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE MOVES, LAYING EACH OTHER OUT! BECAUSE OF THE PREVIOUS DAMAGE TO THE LEG FROM THAT DRAGON SCREW, MADDIE’S AFTERLIFE WAS SLOWER THIS TIME AROUND! THE FANS ARE GOING NUTS!
Gia: Cloud was counting on that with her strategy! She knows that the more Maddie runs on that leg, the slower she becomes! She’s forcing Maddie to utilize the only finisher in her arsenal; over and over…until it’s totally useless.
SG1: Well much does she has left in her!? Hell, how much does CLOUD have left in herself!? Somehow, both women are trying to get back up as Jesse Carlton starts the the countdown for a double knockout! Maddie is leaning against the ropes, as is Cloud on opposite sides of the ring! Performing contact with both of their techniques lessened the intended damage! I think Matsuda realized that and figured if the Afterlife connected, at least the Last Surprise would do some damage to Madison! Both women stumble towards each other, with nothing but inflicting pain on their respective minds! Maddie starts yelling at Cloud – MATSUDA SMACKS HER ACROSS THE FACE WITH THE BACK OF HER HAND!
Gia: MADDIE ALMOST DOES A FULL 180 FROM THE IMPACT! SHE USES THE MOMENTUM TO STRIKE MATSUDA ACROSS THE FACE WITH A DISCUS SLAP ACORSS THE FACE!
SG1: MATSUDA’S HOLDING HER FACE, STUNNED BY THE SUDDEN ATTACK! MADDIE’S YELLING AGAIN WITH HER HAND RAISED! SHE SPITS IN CLOUD’S FACE AGAIN! CLOUD RESPONDS WITH ANOTHER SMACK! A RAGING KALINE SLAPS BACK! YOU CAN SEE THE ABSOLUTE RAGE THESE TWO ARE IN!
Gia: CLOUD DUCKS MADISON’S NEXT SLAP! NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! CLOUD HAS THE BRID- WAIT CLOUD FLIPS OVER WITH MADISON IN HR GRASP! I DON’T KNOCK WHAT KIND OF RESERVES SHE’S TAPPING INTO BUT SHE LIFTS MADISON IN THE AIR RAID POSITION – NECKBREAKER TO THE KNEE OF MATSUDA! SHE GOS FOR THE COVER!
SG1: MADDIE KICKS OUT! CLOUD IS SLAMMING HER FIST IN FRUSTRATION! SHE’S WASTING NO TIME PICKING MADDIE UP BY THE HAIR! MATSUDA’S OWN HAIR HAS COMPLETELY COVERED HER FACE! LOOK AT HER EYES! SHE’S IN PURE WAR QUEEN MO-
Gia: M.O.D.!!! MADDIE WITH THE FAMEASSER OUT OF NOWHERE!!!! SHE LIFTS THE LEGS FOR THE PIN!!!!
Gia: MATSUDA! KICKS OUT! MATSUDA KICKS OUT! MADDIE WAS TRYING TO END THIS ANOTHER WAY, BUT SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE MUST DO!!! SHE IMMEDIATELY USES EVERYTHING IN HER TO LIFTS UP CLOUD BY THE HAIR AS SHE –
SG1: CLOUD SNEAKS BEHIND HER! SHE HAS MADDIE IN THE STRAIGHTJACKET POSITION!!! MADISON IS STRUGGLING! CLOUD REFUSES TO BUDGE! SHE WANTS TO TAKE MADISON TO CLOUD CITY!! MADISON IS DOING EVERYTHING IN HER POWER TO AVOID THAT TRIP!! SHE GETS SUPERIOR FOOTING AND SPINS AROUND CLOUD WHILE HOLDING ON TO THE WRIST! SHE SPINS MATSUDA OUT –
SG1: MADISON HAS CONNECTED WITH A MODIFIED WRISTLOCK VERSION OF HER FINISHER!!! MATSUDA LOOKS LIKE SHE’S DONE FOR! WAIT! MADISON DOESN’T LOOK LIKE SHE’S FINISHED! SHE HAS WRIST CONTROL! SHE’S ON ONE KNEE, TRYING TO GET BACK ON HER FEET! MATSUDA ALMOST LOOKS LIKE DEAD WEIGHT AT THIS POINT!
Gia: Oh no…Cloud.
SG1: AFTERLIIIFEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! AFTERLIIIFEEEEEEEEE! MADISON KALINE HAS STRUCK MATSUDA WITH A SECOND WRISTLOCK AFTERLIFE!!!! MATSUDA’S DONE FOR! SHE DOESN’T LOOK CONSCIOUS! MADISON KALINE MAY HAVE DETHRONED THE ICONIC WAR QUEEN ON HER SECOND DEFENSE!
Gia: She’s going for another one!?
SG1: IT LOOKS LIKE MADISON WANTS TO SEAL THE DEAL! SHE STILL HAS THE WRISTLOCK IN PLACE! SHE’S LOW ON ENERGY HERSELF, BUT SHE WANTS TO END STEPHANIE “CLOUD” MATSUDA ONCE AND FOR ALL! SHE’S SLOWLY GETTING TO HER FEET FOR ONE MORE AFTERLIFE! CLOUD’S LEGACY WILL FOREVER BE IN THE UNDERWORLD AFTER THIS FINAL CLOTHESLINE! MADDIE PULLS BACK…
Gia: LAST SURPRISE!!!! CLOUD PULLED OUT ANOTHER LAST SURPRISE COUNTER!!!!! MADISON NEVER SAW IT COMING!!!
(The crowd erupts in a mix of “Yes!” and “This is Awesome!” chants as the once humble Japanese crowd turns into an excited American-style crowd!)
SG1: OH MY GOD! I DON’T KNOW HOW MATSUDA PULLED THAT RABBIT OUT OF HER HAT, BUT SHE DID IT! SHE LOOKS DEAD! SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE HAS NOTHING LEFT IN HER SYSTEM! HOW THE HELL DOES ONE SURVIVE MULTIPLE AFTERLIFE CLOTHESLINES!? SHE GOT IT WITH ONE AT HALF-STRENGTH AND TOOK TWO FULL WRISTLOCK CLOTHESLINES FROM HELL POINT BLANK! THERE’S SOMETHING INSIDE MATSUDA, SOMETHING DEEP INSIDE THAT REFUSES TO STAY DOWN!
Gia: Cloud has her hand on Madison’s wrist! She has the wrist control now!
SG1: Cloud is on her feet! She’s glaring at Maddie! Her face means business! How the hell is she standing!?
Gia: CLOUD TIGGER!
SG1: CLOUD HITS THE BICYCLE KNEE SQUARE UNDER MADISON’S CHIN!
SG1: A SECOND KNEE TO THE CHIN!!!
Gia: KICK TO THE GUT!
SG1: CLOUD PULLS A BENT MADDIE FORWARD! SHE LIFTS HER UP –
Gia:: SPECIAL DELIVERY!!!!
SG1: CLOUD PLANTS MADDIE ON THE HEAD WITH A PACKAGE PILEDRIVER!!! MADISON IS OUT! SHE’S OUT TO PASTURE!SLOWLY STANDING
Gia: She’s…not covering her!?
SG1: Cloud is crawling over to the nearest corner! What is she doing! Does she even have the strength to pull off what i think she’s going to do! She doesn’t have enough to go to the high rent district! What the hell are you doing Cloud!?
Gia: She’s climbing the turnbuckle! She’s atop! She’s standing! Cloud’s eyes are in another world at this point!
SG1: Madison is too far. There’s no way Matsuda could hit that!
(Cloud snaps her fingers)
Gia: C9!!!!! C9!!!! OH MY GOD!!!! STEPHANIE HITS THE CLOUD 9 HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING!!!
SG1: WITH THE CONDITION SHE’S IN, SOMEHOW SHE HITS A CORKSCREW SHOOTING STAR HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING! SHE HAS AN ARM OVER MADDIE! JESSE CARLTON MAKES THE COUNT!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Kill Bill (Remix)” by Archie & Sizzle plays as Cloud rolls off of Madison, barely conscious)
Jasmine: YOUR WINNER AND STILL EAW WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION! STEPHANIE! CLOUD! MASTUUUUUDAAAAAAAAA!
Gia: She did it! Just like she said she would – Stephanie Matsuda has won her second title defense!
SG1: Against what looks like nearly impossible odds! Madison gave her everything she had, but it looked like Cloud’s iron will came through in the end!
Gia: Cloud took everything she had! Everything! And proved to the world why she deserves to be champion! Congratulations Stephanie Matsuda on a successful defense in your home country!

SG1: We are now are the main event of the evening! For the first time in Empire’s history, four teams will be competing for a tag team championship! The EAW Empire Tag Team Championship to be exact!
Gia: This is quite the historic moment, SG1! The Crowe’s Nest was among the first set of teams that Flannery has selected to participate in this event. It’s kind of interesting when you think about it – April and Jael are connected through a professional relationship, Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade are best friends, The Goto Sisters are well, sisters, and Consuela Ava and Andrea Valentine are two of Empire’s best who have an opportunity to become champions. Four different teams, four different reasons to be here.
(The Crowe’s Nest climb into the ring and stare at the crowd with intimidating looks on their faces)
SG1: They look ready.
(“Chase” by Batta plays to a standing ovation as Azumi and Sakuya come out, waving to the Yokohama audience)
SG1: Here’s the fan favorite to win it all! Azumi and Sakuya Goto! These sisters have made it their personal mission to be victorious in their home country!
Gia: Azumi has had quite a few opportunities to wear gold around her waist – maybe this is finally the time it happens. She also has a date with destiny at Pain for PRIDE! I wonder how she feels about being Zakkii’s last opponent?
SG1: I don’t know Gia, I’ve heard that she refused to speak with anyone upon hearing the news.
(The Goto Sisters climb into the ring, glaring at The Crowe’s Nest. “Exotic” by Priyanka Chopra feat. Pitbull plays as Consuela Rose Ava walks out with Andrea Valentine)
SG1: One of the most random team ups I’ve seen on Empire – but one that’s well deserved. These two have the potential to work well off of each other. Consuela is a former two-time Specialist Champion, and Andrea has defeated the current and former women’s champions back to back! My money is on these two to be honest!
Gia: You know what? I want to put my money on the Goto Sisters.
SG1: Alright, bet.
(Consuela and Andrea climb into the ring. “Resurge” by Gone is Gone plays as Sienna Jade and Kassidy Heart walks out)
SG1: Empire’s new resident heartbreakers – the Jaded Hearts.
Gia: They came onto the scene with a bang! These women are the epitome of stuck up in my opinion!
SG1: But they’re good – Sienna Jade is the Freeweight Champion, which she successfully defended tonight.
(The Jaded Hearts climb into the ring, smiling at their competition)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Jasmine: The following match is scheduled for one fall and it is a FOUR CORNERS TAG TEAM MATCH FOR EAW EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP! Two members from two separate teams will start the match. Anyone can tag themselves into the match, regardless of what team you’re on, as long as it’s not your own tag team partner! First team to score a pinfall or submission is your winner and the INAUGURAL EAW EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! First! April Song and Jael Arcana-Rosario…the Crowe’s Nest!
(April and Jael raise their fists in the air)
Jasmine: Their opponents! First, Azumi and Sakuya Goto…The Goto Sisters!
(Azumi and Sakuya wave to their adoring fans)
Jasmine: Next! The team of Consuela Rose Ava and Andrea Valentine!
(Consuela and Andrea give each other a high five)
Jasmine: And lastly…Sienna Jade! Kassidy Heart! The Jaded Hearts!
(Sienna and Kassidy roll their eyes to the chorus of boos they recieve. Sienna passes her Freeweight Championship to the referee and climb out to the apron with Kassidy. Sakuya and April Song are the only ones left in the ring.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
SG1: Referee Nikka Machida has called for the bell and we’re underway! April Song is starting off the match with Sakuya Goto as both women lock-up! Both women go through a brief chain wrestling sequence! April with a wristlock! Sakuya counters with a Hammerlock! April spins out and catches the leg! Sakuya kicks away and crawls backward to the ropes! The Professional laughs at her opponent, who stays near the ropes to create separation between the two! Song takes a couple of steps back, beckoning for Sakuya to come close!
Gia: April has no problem taking this to the center of the ring where her mat wrestling skills would reign supreme! Sakuya takes her up on it as the two is engaged in another lock-up!

Sakuya’s limbs are being stretched as April keeps things in her realm of expertise! Goto’s wriggling about as her older sister looks on, frustrated by what’s happening! Azumi can’t take it anymore and goes under –
SG1: Sakuya makes it to the ropes! Her small legs reached the bottom rope!
Ref: One! Two! Three! Four!
SG1: April lets go of the hold, frustrated by Sakuya’s escape! Goto is hanging on to the ropes again, but April’s not backing down! She hits Sakuya with a mean forearm smash! Goto stumbles away from her sister, along the ropes! Consuela reaches out for the tag but April pulls the pirate away and whips her to her team’s corner! April charges forward – the corner clothesline connects forcing Sakuya to slump down! April tags in Jael! Her Crowe’s Nest sister-in-arms immediately start stomping a mudhole through Sakuya! She’s barely able to defend herself as both women tag each themselves in, taking turns stomping away at Azumi’s younger sister!
Consuela: (yells) Cut it out you damn bullies! Basura!
Gia: April gives Consuela the finger and delivers a running knee to Sakuya Goto’s face! She drags Sakuya out and tags in Jael! Swift teamwork with a double knee drop armbreaker! The pirate is in a daze as April wastes no time placing her in the tree of woe! Azumi is yelling for her sister to fight back! Come on Sakuya!
SG1: April goes back on the apron as Jael struts to the opposite corner and blows a kiss at Azumi. She charges forward and leaps in the air for the dropkick –
Gia: Nobody’s home! Ouch! Jael lands in a not-so-nice position when she makes contact with the steel post as Sakuya pulls herself up in time! Before April can react, she’s kicked off the apron! Sakuya leaps from the top! DIVING DOUBLE STOMP ANCHOR DROP TO THE FACE OF JAEL ARCANA-ROSARIO!!!
SG1: Sakuya rolls forward, runs, dives, AND MAKES THE HOT TAG! AZUMI GOTO IS IN! APRIL SLIDES INTO THE RING! KNIFE EDGE CHOP TO APRIL! ANOTHER ONE! A THIRD ONE! A FOURTH! APRIL’S IN THE CORNER, HOLDING HER CHEST! AZUMI PICKS UP JAEL AND WHIPS HER TO HER TEAM’S CORNER! AZUMI CHARGES FORWARD! FLYING ELBOWS SMASH TO JAEL! SHE PICKS UP SPEED AND HEADS TOWARDS APRIL! SHINING WIZARD! APRIL’S FACE IS ROCKED! AZUMI RUNS BACK AT JAEL! FLYING HIP ATTACK! SHE’S ON A ROLL! SHE RUNS BACK AT APRIL! CORNER DROPKICK! IT’S AZUMIMANIA AS THE UNBREAKABLE JUMPS TO HER FEET ENERGIZED BY HER DOMINATION IN THIS MATCH!
Gia: As April rolls out of the ring, Jael finds herself crawling near Consuela and Andrea’s corner of the ring! Consuela Rose Ava tags herself in!
SG1: Azumi turns around just in time to see her new opponent! Consuela smiles and cracks her knuckles eager to have a go at Azumi!
Gia: These two don’t share a ring often. But when they do, always expect a classic! Azumi and Consuela tie-up! Consuela ducks a surprise backflip and whips Azumi her team’s corner! Consuela runs at her but Azumi leaps over Consuela and rolls along the mat! Consuela hops to the second rope as Azumi turns around – backflip knee arm drag from Consuela!

Consuela is rolling away, trying to create some distance between the two! Azumi’s not done as she charges ahead! SLIDING CRASH! She connects with the sliding forearm smash! Consuela gets knocked near the corner of the Jaded Hearts and Sienna Jade tags herself in!
SG1: I’m surprised she’s starting first, considering that two matches ago, she was defending the Freeweight title!
Gia: Well so is Azumi who gets into a fighting stance! Sienna turns away from Azumi and instead kicks Consuela out of the ring!
Sienna: (yells) Bye BITCH!

Gia: Sakuya looks worried about her sister! Kassidy laughs at Sakuya and puts her hand up. She winks at the Crowe’s Nest, much to April’s aggravation and charges forward! The low dropkick connects with Azumi’s face! Kassidy rolls Azumi on her back and goes for the pin!
Gia: The ref notices Sienna holding Kassidy’s legs on the ropes and demands for her to let go! Sienna puts up her hands as if nothing happened! Jade back steps away with her arms up! The ref gives a warning to Jade while Kassidy uses the opportunity rake at Azumi’s eyes! Andrea’s yelling at the ref to pay attention who turns around just as Kassidy puts her hand up! Kassidy winks at Andrea as she whips Azumi back to her team’s corner! Kassidy starts firing off a series of strong style shoot kicks to the chest of Goto, as if mocking her in her own style of wrestling!
SG1: One thing people fail to realize – Kassidy is just as dangerous a striker as Azumi is! Azumi looks like she needs to make a tag soon as Kassidy tags on Sienna who pounces on Goto like a wild animal, unleashing a series of forearms to the face!

(DING! DING! DING!)
(“Glory and Gore” plays as the Crowe’s Nest roll out of the ring as Azumi crawls to her sister’s aid. April and Jael snatches the Empire tag titles before Flannery could even offer them.)

Gia: Even with April’s disinterest, the Crowe’s Nest secured the Empire Tag Team Championship! You know what this means, right?
SG: The Crowe’s Nest has two of the four titles on Empire?
(The remainder teams help each other up as Jael and April hold their new championships in the air as they back up the ramp. Chelsea Crowe and Braxton DeVil join their stablemates on stage. The ladies of the Crowe’s Nest hold their respective titles in the air as the camera pulls back. Braxton jumps up and down pointing at his comrades in excitement as the camera fades to the EAW logo.)
