(EAW intro plays.)
(“POP/STARS” by K/DA (ft Madison Beer, (G)I-DLE, Jaira Burns) begins to play over the scenic footage that begins to play.)
“You know who it is
Coming ’round again
You want a dose of this
(Our footage starts up by showing off some of the scenery of Seoul, South Korea. We see images of the ancient palaces, pagodas and stunning green landscape with majestic mountain tops that Seoul is well known for, as well as some shots of the beautiful Seoul Skyline and the hustle and bustle of the Seoul metropolitan subway system in South Korea.)
“I’m a goddess with a blade
소리쳐봐 내 이름 잊지 못하게
Loud, loud, loud, loud”
(We’re shown clips of Consuela Rose Ava watching as Andrea Valentine wins a number one contender’s match for the EAW Specialsits Championship.)
“I could take it to the top
절대 멈추지 못해 내가 끝내주는
Bad gal, gal, gal”
(We see clips of Amber Keys and Cleopatra, the Queen’s Court, going back and forth with Minerva until she is eventually joined by Constance Blevins to form Heavenly Hell.)
“And when I start to talk like that (like that)
Oh you won’t know how to react
I’m a picture-perfect face”
(A clip of Miho Li and Io Ishimori, chatting backstage with Yoshi San before being ridiculed by Fatal Destiny. Celes Dumont and Karina-Ann mocking The Invincible Winter before accepting a challenge from them.)
“With that wild in my veins
You can hear it in my
Growl, growl, growl, growl”
(A clip of Raven Roberts confronting and insulting Kassidy Heart, who stands proudly as she defends the honor of the Jaded Wolfe Hearts against a woman who she feels knows nothing of loyalty.)
“So keep your eyes on me now
무엇을 보든 좋아할 거야
닿을 수 없는 level
나와 대결 원한 널 확신해
We got it all in our hands now”
(A clip of when Serena Bennett first confronted Felix Hartley as the Specialists Champion–only to lose the same evening after a distraction from Felix. Another clip of Serena and Felix standing as the last two women remaining in the Women’s Grand Rampage.)
“So can you handle what we’re all about?
We’re so tough
Not scared to show you up
Can you feel the rush now?”
(A clip of Sienna Jade, celebrating her Women’s World Championship defense at Grand Rampage, only to be confronted by an emotionally strained Tyler Wolfe. Another clip of Tyler Wolfe trying to apologize to Sienna, who in turn, attacks Tyler. Last shot is of Sienna Jade holding her Women’s World Championship directly in the face of a downed Tyler Wolfe.)
“Ain’t nobody bringing us
Down, down, down, down, down, down
They could try but we’re gonna wear the crown
You could go another round
Round, round, round, round, round, round
Wish you luck but you’re not bringing us down
We go hard (hard) ’til we get it, get it
We go hard (hard). We so in it, in it
We pop stars (pop stars), only winning, winning now
Ain’t nobody bringing us down, down, down, down”
(“POP/STARS” continues to play throughout the capacity crowd filling every last seat in the Seoul World Cup Stadium. The camera focuses in on the pyro going off all around the stage, trons, and rafters surrounding the stadium before panning across the happy, smiling faces in Seoul, South Korea. The energy of the fans in the arena tonight is contagious, and there’s no denying their excitement for the jam-packed card awaiting them.)
(The camera transitions to the announce table where Gavin Kirkland and CJ Hana are seen dancing a very obviously choreographed dance piece as the music plays. Upon noticing the camera, they turn their attention to the EAW Universe, smiling wide and waiting to welcome everyone to Empire’s last Free-Per-View of Season 12.)
Gavin Kirkland: HELLO EVERYBODY, I’M GAVIN KIRKLAND ALONGSIDE CJ HANA!
CJ Hana: THANK YOU FOR JOINING US AT TERMINUS!
Gavin Kirkland: The end of the road to Pain For Pride is right here, right now, tonight, as together, we put an end to the culmination of heartbreak and triumph that we’ve experienced on Empire over the past few months. Tell ‘em about it, CJ!
CJ Hana: Why bother, Gavin? I’d rather them all experience it for themselves! Here at ringside, we’ve got Maria Del Rey at the ready to bring you guys some exciting Empire exclusive action!
(“Bullet” by Hyro the Hero begins to play as Io Ishimori steps out from behind the curtain, holding her furry companion Yoshi San high in the air as she poses on stage.)
Maria Del Rey: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is a TORNADOOOO TAG TEAM MATCH AND IT IS SCHEDULED FOOOOR–
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Mari Del Rey: Introducing first, being accompanied to the ring by Yoshi San, from Osaka, Japan, weighing in at one-hundred and nineteen pounds, “THE WINTERRRRR,” IIIIOOOOOOOO ISHHIIIIMOOOOOORIIIIIIIIIII!
Gavin Kirkland: Really? Did I hear that fucking correctly? That stuffed toy is fucking ACCOMPANYING her TO THE RING?!??!
CJ Hana: Yoshi San is Io’s closest friend and trusted advisor. Mind your business, Gavin, and let the troubled girl find some comfort in the ways that she can!
Gavin Kirkland: If I knew we were allowing furries onto Empire, then I’d have never signed on to begin with.
(Io’s theme dies down as she stands on the top turnbuckle. She turns her head to the stage as “Feel Invincible” by Skillet starts up, and a trap door opens as Miho Li rises from the bottom up onto the stage to a loud, supportive pop from the crowd. She moves in sync with the music greeting many outstretched hands from fans from across the guard rail as she jogs down the aisle to the ring. She slides into the ring and poses then runs to each of the four turnbuckle soaking in the cheers from the crowd feeling their emotion draw to her.)
Maria Del Rey: And her tag team partner, from Riverside, California, weighing in at one-hundred and twenty pounds, MIIIHOOOOOOOOOO LLLLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIII!
(On the final turnbuckle, Miho flips backwards off and lands on her feet. She perches herself on top a turnbuckle as “Feel Invincible” gradually fades out. She stands next to Io Ishimori, who slowly tries to inch away from Miho the moment she gets too close.)
(“Rainmaker” (Orchestral Rock Version) by Dillon Spears begins to play throughout the arena speakers, and the crowd’s indifference shifts immediately into an uncontrollable series of boos as Karina-Ann and Celes Dumont come out from behind the curtain.)
Maria Del Rey: AND THEIR OPPONENTS! At a combined weight of two-hundred and seventy pounds, she is the “Siren Assassin,” Karina-Ann, and “Lady Gorja,” Celes Dumont–FAAAAAATTTAAAAAAAALLLLLL DDDEEESSSSSTIIIIIIINNNNNNNNYYYYYYYYYYY!
Gavin Kirkland: I wish Celes would get out of the damn way so I could get a better look at Karina’s outfit tonight.
CJ Hana: Not interested in what Celes has got going on, are you?
Gavin Kirkland: Don’t be silly, I couldn’t care less what that fugly bitch throws on. Hell, she could be butt ass naked and I wouldn’t bat an eyelash. But! Whenever I get to see her throw down in that ring, no matter who her opponent is, I’m amazed every time she goes out there and does what she does best!
CJ Hana: Gotta agree with you there, bud–well, at least the second part. Karina-Ann has had her own fair share of exceptional in-ring moments both on Empire and FPVs as well! I’m looking forward to see what she brings to the table here tonight in Tornado Tag Team action!
(Fatal Destiny make their way to the ring, brushing off the negative reception they’re receiving. Celes jogs up the steel steps as Karina pulls herself onto the apron using the ropes, and they together enter the ring through the middle ropes.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: TORNADO TAG MATCH RULES, CJ! WHICH DAMN NEAR MEANS THAT THERE ISN’T ANY! THAT’S WHY THE REFEREE DOESN’T BLINK AN EYE WHEN CELES IMMEDIATELY SLIDES UNDER THE ROPES AND CHECKS BENEATH THE APRON FOR A WEAPON OF HER CHOICE–IS THAT–YES! A TABLE! CELES DUMONT PULLED A TABLE FROM UNDERNEATH THE RING! OH YES! THIS DIRTY BITCH MIGHT BE A LITTLE ROUGH ON THE EYES, BUT I SURE AS HELL LOVE HER DESIRE FOR VIOLENCE! :blessed:
CJ Hana: But don’t get too excited, Gavin! Io Ishimori comes up from behind, knocking Celes in the back of the head with a forearm! And Celes stumbles to the ground, not quite able to get that table anywhere where it could do any legitimate damage, and it lands on the ground as Io pulls Celes up from what little bit of hair that rests on her head and throws her shoulder first into the barricade!
Gavin Kirkland: Celes might already be hurt! She grabs onto that hurt shoulder while Io looks on at her, a sadistic smile on her face as she appears satisfied with the work she’s done here at ringside–and she turns attention back to the center of the ring, where Karina-Ann has forced Miho into a turnbuckle corner! Laying fist after fist right to the jaw of a currently defenseless Miho Li! IO TO THE RESCUE! SHE SLIDES UNDERNEATH THE BOTTOM ROPE, UNBEKNOWNST TO KARINA-ANN, AND SHE JUMPS RIGHT ON TOP OF HER! KARINA TAKING IO FOR A PIGGYBACK RIDE! FUCK, I WISH I COULD RIDE HER LIKE THAT RIGHT DAMN NOW! Io is a lucky fucking woman.
CJ Hana: Io with a rear naked choke hold to Karina as she wraps her legs around the torso of the incredibly leggy Siren Assassin! And Karina can’t do anything but wear Io like a backpack as she flails around the ring, doing everything she can not to fall victim to the choke hold Io has on her! Karina looks as though she’s fading–and “The Invincible” Miho Li seems to be perking up up from the corner–Io unwraps her legs around Karina’s waist and drops back down to the ground, yet still maintaining the choke hold around Karina’s neck. Miho climbs to the top rope, Karina sees it coming, but there’s nothing she can do as Io holds her right in place for as long as she can–AND MIHO WITH AN ASSISTED DIVING HURRICANRANA TO KARINA-ANN! Io darted out of the way just in time to avoid catching the impact, but she’s quick to plant herself right back on top of a downed Karina-Ann–
Gavin Kirkland: The things I would do to get on top of Karina-Ann right now–oh wait a minute, that’s a cover! IO ISHIMORI GOING FOR THE WIN! THE INVINCIBLE WINTER IS TAKING IT RIGHT HERE!
Referee: OOOOOONE! TWWOOOOO–
Gavin Kirkland: AND NOT QUITE! A kickout by Karina-Ann! I knew that couldn’t have been it! Keep pushing, baby girl–hey! Look! That thing–Celes is waking back up, she’s entered the ring, and she sets her sights on Io Ishimori who she DRAGS up from off of the floor–Io looks like a goddamn rag doll right now, the way that Celes so effortlessly lifts her and–SPIRAL ARROW! THE HALF NELSON SUPLEX DAMN NEAR SENT IO ISHIMORI OVER THE TOP ROPE! Io lands right on her neck, that’s dangerous as fuck, CJ. She could have killed her! YEAH! DON’T STOP! GIVE US MORE, CELES!
CJ Hana: And “Lady Gorja” is looking to do just that! Turning her attention now to Miho Li, who doesn’t look like she’s incredibly excited to stand face to face with her dear cousin in the ring! Miho pleading with her eyes as Celes slowly treads across the ring to face Miho Li, who now stands up on both feet, getting herself in position to stand her ground against the woman who doesn’t seem to give a damn about family values for the duration of this match up! Celes has made it perfectly clear that when called on, she’ll deliver a beating to whoever it is that stands in her way–and right now, that’s Miho Li! Celes standing directly in front of her younger cousin now, looking down on Miho as the height advantage Celes holds only plays more into her intimidation factor!
Gavin Kirkland: Gotta say, Miho doesn’t look at all phased by Celes! That passion and desire to shine brightly in this ring shows as she eagerly talks some smack to Celes, letting her cousin know she’s ready to prove herself here tonight. I’m not even sure which voice inside Celes’ head that Miho thinks she’s talking to right now, but–OOF! WHICHEVER ONE IT WAS, IS CERTAINLY PISSED THE HELL OFF! CELES DUMONT JUST LANDED A MASSIVE HEADBUTT STRAIGHT TO THE SKULL OF MIHO LI, WHO APPEARS TO BE BUSTED OPEN, RIGHT BETWEEN THE DAMN EYES! AND MIHO FALLS RIGHT ONTO THE GROUND FROM THE IMPACT, AND CELES DOES NOTHING ELSE BUT LAUGH! This twisted bitch is showing no mercy for the damage she’s hoping to inflict here tonight!
CJ Hana: But–look at Miho! She lifts her hands up to check her wound, glancing at the blood that now sits on her fingertips–and she stands up! Miho lifts herself up off the ground, showing ZERO sign of backing down! She’s letting us know that she’s more than able to stand up to the this great display of strength and violence which we’ve come to expect from Celes Dumont! Miho charges after her–looking to go for a spear right onto Celes–BUT CELES DODGES, SENDING MIHO STRAIGHT INTO THE RING ROPES INSTEAD–but Miho bounces back, and meets an unsuspecting Celes with a snap neck breaker, planting Celes right onto the ground!
Gavin Kirkland: Miho rushes back to the ropes–AND A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT ONTO CELES DUMONT! MIHO STAYS IN PLACE FOR ANOTHER COVER–
Referee: OOOONE! TWOOOOOOOO!
Gavin Kirkland: KARINA’S UP! KARINA’S BACK UP AND–KARINA HAS A KENDO STICK IN HAND AND SHE JUST SMASHED IT RIGHT ONTO MIHO LI’S BACK! AND MIHO HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO BREAK THE PIN, ROLLING OFF OF CELES IN AGONY! Ooooh, just look at the way Karina’s fingers grip the base of that long wood–AND SMASHES IT AGAIN ONTO MIHO, WHOSE BACK IS NOW GLOWING BRIGHT RED FROM THESE KENDO STICK SHOTS! ANOTHER FROM KARINA! ANOTHER! ANOTHER! KARINA-ANN SHOWS NO SIGNS OF STOPPING AS SHE USES HER FAVORITE WEAPON TO PUT MIHO LI THROUGH ABSOLUTE HELL RIGHT NOW–
CJ Hana: BUT DON’T COUNT OUT IO ISHIMORI! THE FANS CHEER AND SCREAM AND SHE POPS UP SEEMINGLY OUT OF NOWHERE AND GRABS THAT KENDO STICK AS KARINA PULLS IT BACK, PUTTING AN END TO THE STRIKES TO THE BACK OF MIHO LI! IO COMING IN TO SAVE INVINCIBLE WINTER, TO KEEP HER TEAM IN THIS MATCH UP, DESPITE HER APPARENT DISDAIN TOWARDS HER TAG TEAM PARTNER! Karina is damn near shook to the core now that Io has grabbed hold of the other end of that kendo stick! It’s a tug-of-war in the center of the ring as Io Ishimori hopes to even the playing field and put in some work for her team! AND KARINA DOESN’T WANNA LET IT HAPPEN AS SHE TRIES TO USE HER LONG LEGS TO HER ADVANTAGE AND–SUPER KICK TO IO ISHIMORI–
Gavin Kirkland: IO DUCKS! IO DUCKS THE SUPERKICK AND–KARINA DROPPED THE KENDO STICK! IO PICKS IT UP! AND NOW IO REPAYING THE FAVOR AND STRIKING KARINA-ANN WITH THE KENDO STICK OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN, JUST AS SHE WAS TO HER UNLIKELY TAG TEAM PARTNER A MOMENT AGO! Io is relentless! Something in her must’ve snapped! She doesn’t wanna let up, she shows no signs of stopping! Karina yelping with each shot to the back from Io–giggity–AND IO WITH ONE LAST STRIKE TO THE SKULL OF KARINA-ANN WHO FALLS BACKWARDS ONTO THE MAT! IO DROPS THE KENDO STICK AND GOES FOR A QUICK COVER ON KARINA–
Referee: OOOONE! TWWO–
CJ Hana: CELES DUMONT BREAKS UP THE PIN! SHE DRAGS IO ISHIMORI BY THE LEGS, PULLS HER DIRECTLY OFF OF KARINA-ANN AND STOPS IO ISHIMORI FROM TAKING THIS WIN FROM FATAL DESTINY! Io scrambles up to her feet–AND IS MET WITH A CHOP TO THE CHEST FROM CELES DUMONT! ANOTHER CHOP! ANOTHER CHOP! AND NOW CELES FOLLOWS UP WITH AN–ANGEL’S TOUCH! ANGEL’S TOUCH, THE TWIST OF FATE ONTO IO ISHIMORI–
Gavin Kirkland: And Miho Li is back up now! She’s slow, but she’s still coming to the aid of her partner–Miho Li with a forearm to the back of Celes Dumont before she can get off the Angel’s Touch! And Celes turns around and Miho and–she looks disturbed! Shit, I would NOT wanna be Miho Li right now, Celes is glaring right at Miho Li and to say she’s pissed is an understatement. Miho almost looks as though she’s seen a damn ghost! Wait, what’s that Celes is saying to her?
Celes Dumont: (off-mic) We’re ending this, Miho. It’s for your own good. Think about our family–think about what this means–
Miho Li: (off-mic) But–
Celes Dumont: (off-mic) DO IT ALREADY!
CJ Hana: Not sure what the hell is going on between Celes and Miho right there, but Io Ishimori has perked back up plants a knee strike straight to the back of Celes Dumont, who’s staggered, but Celes, she pulls herself back together–
Celes Dumont: (off-mic) MIHO! NOW!
Gavin Kirkland: Miho turns her head back to her tag team partner, Io, who–WHAT IN GOD’S NAME?! MIHO LI JUST–OH MY GOD, MIHO LI WITH THE DEADLY LITTLE MIHO–ONTO HER FUCKING TAG TEAM PARTNER! WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK JUST HAPPENED, CJ?!
CJ Hana: No. This isn’t right. The look on Miho Li’s face says it all, Gavin, she–Miho Li almost look like she’s about to goddamn cry right here in the middle of the ring, while Karina-Ann shoves that table into the ring from earlier! Karina setting the table up, shoving Miho out of the way who can only look on apologetically as she shakes her head, falling back into a turnbuckle corner and watches as–
Gavin Kirkland: AS CELES SPITS DIRECTLY INTO THE FACE OF IO ISHIMORI! SHE PICKS HER BACK UP AND–FUCK! THE DEVIL TRIGGER! CELES WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK STRAIGHT TO THE FACE OF IO ISHIMORI WHO STAND ON SPAGHETTI LEGS RIGHT NOW!
CJ Hana: The table is set up now! Karina-Ann turns back to a dazed Io, and–
Gavin Kirkland: THE MONEY SHOT! THE MONEY SHOT! OH MY GOD, KARINA-ANN WITH THE SNAP DDT ONTO IO, PLANTING HER RIGHT ONTO THE MAT! IS IO EVEN CONSCIOUS?! WHAT GIVES?!
CJ Hana: Celes, slowly, methodically maneuvers Io and puts her in the position–she looks out into the crowd first, a menacing smirk on her face as the fans in the arena here tonight are in utter disbelief at what they’re witnessing–
Gavin Kirkland: FUCK! FUCK!
CJ Hana: :lupe:
Gavin Kirkland: GREETINGS! FROM!! JURON!! RIGHT ONTO THE FUCKING TABLE! THAT GODDAMN F-5 JUST PLANTED IO STRAIGHT THROUGH THE WOOD! SPLINTERS HAVE JUST FLOWN EVERYWHERE! IO ISHIMORI IS BROKEN DIRECTLY IN HALF! FUCK! THIS ISN’T RIGHT! CELES WITH THE DAMN COVER!
Referee: OOOOOOOONE! TWWWWOOOOO! THRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Rainmaker” begins to play throughout the Seoul World Cup Stadium as Karina and Celes shake off the referee who attempts to raise their hands in victory. Miho is seen still standing in the turnbuckle corner, her palm holding her forehead as she stares onward in distress.)
Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS…..KARINA-ANN AND CELES DUMONT–FAAAAAATTAAAAAALLLLLL DESSSSSSTIIINNNNNYYYYYYYYYY!
CJ Hana: This isn’t right. That was absolutely fucked. Miho Li just–just turned her back on tag team partner! A partner Io wanted to avoid completely. A woman Io tried to pull herself away from–and THIS is what it got her. A stab straight to the back from the rookie! Who’d have ever thought?
Gavin Kirkland: Empire really isn’t safe for anyone anymore, is it? But, I guess I get where Miho’s motivations lie. At the end of the day, it’s honor and family first, CJ.
CJ Hana: What about this at all was honorable, Gavin?!
Gavin Kirkland: Regardless. Blood is thicker, isn’t it?
CJ Hana: Thicker than what?
Gavin Kirkland: :mjgrin:
(“Rainmaker” continues to play throughout the arena speakers as Celes Dumont rocks back in forth in the center of the ring, laughing maniacally as she looks onward at the unconscious Io Ishimori. Karina-Ann has since thrown her arm around a somber Miho Li, who doesn’t seem interested in celebrating with Fatal Destiny as Karina tries to perk her up.)
(Commercial break — a dark and ominous ad featuring nothing but a spotlight, a chair, and Mr. DEDEDE. “Soon.”)
(As we returns from break, the camera cuts to a shot of the Specialists Championship hanging high above the ring. “Roll With Me” by Charli XCX begins to blast across the public address system. The fans inside the sold-out Seoul World Cup Stadium rise to their feet and begin marking out. As Andrea Valentine steps through the guerilla curtains, those cheers get even louder. The former Specialists Champion plays to the crowd, and then makes her way to the ring with a determined look on her face.)
Gavin Kirkland: How fucking great does Andrea look tonight, CJ? My dick got hard the second her music hit.
CJ Hana: Tonight’s a huge night for Andrea Valentine. She has a chance to regain the Specialists Championship and head to Pain for Pride as a champion. Andrea’s had such an up and down season, and it would mean the world to her to capture that belt for a second time.
Gavin Kirkland: Do you think she’ll make love to the championship if she wins it tonight?
CJ Hana: :skip:
Gavin Kirkland: I’d pay good money to see Andrea fuck the shit out of that belt and lick h-
CJ Hana: GAVIN! Can someone please mute him for the love of Gawd.
(Andrea slips inside the ring as Gavin’s headset is temporarily muted as per CJ’s request. She hypes the crowd up, greets Maria, and takes a corner. She glances up at the Specialists Championship and an intense look crosses her face.)
Gavin Kirkland: That’s her ‘fuck me from behind’ face.
CJ Hana: O. They’re not gunna leave you on mute, are they?
(Andrea’s music fades. After a few seconds, “We Appreciate Power” by Gimes begins to play. The hot ass crowd continues to cheer as the champion herself, Consuela Rose Ava, walks out from the back. Consuela plays to the crowd, points at the Pain for Pride sign, and begins making her way to the ring.)
Gavin Kirkland: :noah: I’m so torn when it comes to this match. Obviously I want all blonde everything, but Consuela! That’s the kind of woman that belongs on MILF Hunters dot com, fucking the poolboy, and scrubbing my goddamn kitchen in a bikini. FUCK!
CJ Hana: Why me?!
Gavin Kirkland: Consuela got that fire burning inside of her, CJ Hana. One look in those beautiful brown eyes and you know she can deepthroat your dick.
CJ Hana: 😐
(Consuela gets inside the ring and takes her corner. She locks her eyes on Andrea and nods her head. Once Consuela’s music fades out, Maria steps to the middle of the ring.)
Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A LADDER MATCH FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP!
(Consuela and Andrea both look up at the belt.)
Maria Del Rey: INTRODUCING FIRST… SHE IS OUR CHALLENGER… FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDA… WEIGHING IN AT 110 POUNDS… SHE IS THE HEART OF EMPIRE… ANDREA VALENTINE!
(Andrea grins at Consuela, and motions that she’s ready to go.)
Maria Del Rey: AND HER OPPONENT… FROM FRIAS, SPAIN… WEIGHING IN AT 120 POUNDS… SHE IS THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION… THE PERFECTIONIST… CONSUELA ROSE AVA!
(Consuela has a look of confidence across her face. She motions that she is ready to go. The referee calls for the bell.)
CJ Hana: There goes the bell, Gavin! I’m so excited for this match!
Gavin Kirkland: I mean, same. But I bet it’s for entirely different reasons.
CJ Hana: I’m sure.
Gavin Kirkland: If somehow this ends up with Consuela and Andrea bangin’ on top of a ladder, then I’m fine with that. I don’t need either of them to hold a championship belt for me to be a satisfied man.
CJ Hana: Well I highly doubt that’s going to happen! Andrea and Consuela are circling one another, and I know both of these women have a lot of respect for one another. Andrea extends her hand, and Consuela gives it a quick shake. Each woman looks up at the Specialists Championship hanging high above the ring. One of these two incredible competitors will walk into Pain for Pride as a champion.
Gavin Kirkland: Consuela immediately goes on attack! She nails Andrea with a knee to the face, and immediately begins clubbing her in the back! Andrea falls to her knees and Consuela begins leveling her with a series of shoot style kicks! Andrea tries to fight her way back up to her feet but Consuela grabs her and forces her to the ropes! Consuela hits Andrea with a series of forearm shots and she sends Andrea across the ring!
CJ Hana: Andrea comes flying back at the champ, and SHE FLIPS OVER CONSUELA! CONSUELA TURNS AROUND! ANDREA THROWS HER FOOT UP BUT CONSUELA IS ABLE TO CATCH IT! ANDREA LEAPS UP! SHE CATCHES CONSUELA WITH A KICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! BOTH WOMEN STAND UP AND ANDREA GOES FOR A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! CONSUELA DUCKS THAT, BUT ANDREA IS ABLE TO COME RIGHT BACK AT HER WITH ANOTHER! CONSUELA HITS THE MAT!!
Gavin Kirkland: Andrea rolls to the outside of the ring and she’s grabbing a ladder!!!
CJ Hana: Andrea slides the ladder inside the ring but there’s Consuela! Consuela catches Andrea with a baseball slide, and Andrea is knocked into the barricades! Consuela grabs her by the hair and begins punching her in the face! Consuela whips Andrea into the ring steps and takes off running! Consuela’s foot connects with Andrea’s face and the Specialists Champion grabs her opponent up by the hair! She bounces Andrea’s face off the hardest part of the ring and throws her back inside! Consuela climbs back in and she grabs the ladder!
Gavin Kirkland: Consuela stands the ladder up in the corner and she goes back over to Andrea! She goes to grab Andrea, but Andrea catches Consuela with a kick! Consuela stumbles back but she is quick to regain her footing! Andrea pushes herself up and she flies at Consuela! Andrea with forearms and right hands! She forces Consuela into the corner and begins stomping away at Consuela’s midsection! She forces Consuela into a sitting position and drives her knee into Consuela’s face! Andrea grabs Consuela up and looks to whip her across the ring into the ladder!
CJ Hana: Consuela plants her feet though! Consuela attempts to reverse the whip, but Andrea plants her feet! Both women are at a standstill! Consuela fires off a right hand, but Andrea is able to block it! Andrea throws a right hand of her own, but Consuela blocks that! The two women lock up and both of them are jostling back and forth for positioning now! It’s Consuela who takes advantage and wraps Andrea in a side headlock! Andrea pushes her off though and forces Consuela back against the ropes! Consuela quickly reverses their position and it’s Andrea who now has her back against the ropes! Consuela slams Andrea in the chest with a brutal chop and she doesn’t stop! She is lighting Andrea up right now and Andrea’s chest is turning red!
Gavin Kirkland: Andrea needs to take her top off so I can make sure Consuela didn’t do any permanent damage to her chest!
CJ Hana: Gavin plz!
Gavin Kirkland: Consuela sends Andrea across the ring and brings her back down to the mat with a big boot to the face! Consuela pulls Andrea up by the hair and she throws her into the ladder!!! Andrea’s back slams into the steel and she is knocked to her knees! Consuela runs forward and catches Andrea in the face! The back of Andrea’s head slams against that ladder and the former champ falls to the mat! Consuela grabs Andrea up and suplexes her against the ladder, and quickly grabs Andrea by the hair! She follows up the suplex by slamming Andrea’s skull against the ladder! This vicious side of Consuela is really fucking hot!
CJ Hana: Consuela wants nothing more than to retain this championship and head to Pain for Pride, Gavin. She’s bound and determined to erase all the hardships she’s faced in EAW since the REVOLT/EAW merger. A lot of women were victims due to the corrupt regime that held Empire hostage late last year, and Consuela was definitely one of them. This is her redemption, and this is her story, and she’s bound and determined to keep her momentum going!
Gavin Kirkland: Consuela has Andrea in position for the sideslam backbreaker and she plants her into the mat! As all of you know, the only way to win this match is to climb a ladder and unhook the Specialists Championship! But instead of using the one already in the ring, Consuela is going to the outside! She reaches under the ring and pulls out a chair! That gets tossed into the ring! Consuela grabs a baseball bat! That goes into the ring! Consuela grabs a metal trash can lid! That goes into the ring! Now she’s pulling out another ladder!!!!
CJ Hana: Consuela grabs the ladder and looks to slide it into the ring but ANDREA IS BACK UP! ANDREA SEES WHAT’S GOING ON! ANDREA WITH A DROP KICK THROUGH THE ROPES THAT SENDS THE LADDER INTO CONSUELA! CONSUELA IS KNOCKED DOWN AND THE LADDER LANDS ON TOP OF HER! ANDREA TAKES A DEEP BREATH AND CLIMBS UP THE ROPES! SHE’S ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING HIGH RISK! ANDREA CAREFULLY BALANCES HERSELF ON THE TOP ROPE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA DIVES OFF! SOMERSAULT FROM THE TOP ROPE ONTO THE LADDER!!!
CJ Hana: BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN!
(It takes both competitors a few seconds to gather their bearings after that.)
Gavin Kirkland: The referee is checking on both women, and both of them are assuring her they’re fine! Consuela pushes the ladder off of her, while Andrea is getting back up. Andrea grabs the ladder and places it inside the ring, and she grabs Consuela! Consuela fires off a right hand, but Andrea hits her right back! Consuela goes back down, and Andrea begins hammering away on the champ! Consuela attempts to fend her off, but Andrea is in control of this match now! She jerks Consuela up and sends her face first into the ring post! Andrea takes ‘The Perfectionist’ by the hair and slams her face off the steps! She tosses Consuela to the ground and grabs the ladder she just sat on the apron! Andrea lays the ladder across the steps and she looks for Consuela, who is crawling to the other side of the ring!
CJ Hana: Consuela tries to pull herself up, but Andrea grabs the back of her head and once again slams Consuela’s face into the apron of the ring. The champ can’t catch a break right now and Andrea reaches into the ring and grabs the chair! Andrea takes the chair and SLAMS IT ACROSS CONSUELA’S BACK! ANDREA RAISES THE CHAIR IN THE AIR AGAIN AND SHE SLAMS IT INTO THE BACK OF CONSUELA’S HEAD! ANDREA THROWS THE CHAIR TO THE GROUND AND GRABS CONSUELA! SNAP SUPLEX TO THE GROUND!
Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA IS BACK OVER TO THE LADDER NOW AND SHE PLACES ONE END OF IT ON THE BARRICADES! THE OTHER END IS RESTING ON THE STEPS! SHE’S NOW GRABBING CONSUELA AND WRAPS HER IN A FRONT FACELOCK! ANDREA LIFTS CONSUELA UP BUT THE BODACIOUS BRUNETTE FIGHTS HER WAY BACK DOWN TO HER FEET! ANDREA GOES TO LIFT CONSUELA UP AGAIN, BUT CONSUELA IS ABLE TO LAND SEVERAL SHARP RIGHT HANDS TO ANDREA’S GUT!
CJ Hana: ANDREA HAS TO LET GO AND THAT GIVES CONSUELA AN OPPORTUNITY TO PEPPER ANDREA WITH A SERIES OF FOREARMS! CONSUELA GRABS ANDREA AND SHE DROPS HER STOMACH FIRST ACROSS THE LADDER! THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION HEADS BACK INTO THE RING AND SHE CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE! WHAT’S CONSUELA ABOUT TO DO?!
Gavin Kirkland: CONSUELA TAKES TO THE SKIES! THE MOONSAULT CONNECTS WITH ANDREA!! THE LADDER DUMPS THEM BOTH TO THE GROUND! HIGH RISK! BUT IS IT GOING TO PAY OFF FOR CONSUELA?!
CJ Hana: Consuela and Andrea have both stayed down for several seconds, but I see Consuela is stirring and she’s making her way back up. She grabs the ladder and throws it back inside the ring, and now she’s grabbing Andrea up! Consuela tosses Andrea back inside the ring, and she follows her back in. Consuela goes for that trash can lid and she pulls Andrea into a sitting position! Consuela cracks that weapon across Andrea’s forehead and the former champion is left flat on her back! Consuela places the lid across Andrea’s face and hits a leg drop!
Gavin Kirkland: Consuela gingerly gets back to her feet! There are two ladders in the ring now and Consuela takes the one that’s closest to her and sets it up in the corner! She walks back over to Andrea and kicks the trash can lid off Andrea’s face! IS SHE BLEEDING?! CJ… IS THAT BLOOD?!
CJ Hana: :lupe: Andrea does appear to be bleeding from the nose, which leads to me believe it could be fractured or broken. But we both know that something like that isn’t about to stop Andrea though! She will fight until she doesn’t have any breath left in her body, and the fact she is looking to regain this champion will be enough to keep her going!
Gavin Kirkland: Consuela snatches Andrea up but, but look at Andrea! She is fighting Consuela off! Andrea with a kick to Consuela’s mid-section and she attempts to Irish whip her right into that ladder! Consuela stops her momentum and she reverses! She Irish whips Andrea and Andrea slams into the ladder chest first!
CJ Hana: CONSUELA REPOSITIONS THE LADDER ACROSS THE ROPES AND SHE GRABS ANDREA BY THE LEGS! CONSUELA FALLS BACK AND THE MOMENTUM CATAPULTS ANDREA UP INTO THE LADDER! JESUS! CONSUELA GRABS THE LADDER AND SHE IS SETTING IT UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! CONSUELA PLACES THE LADDER RIGHT UNDER HER CHAMPIONSHIP AND SHE’S GOING TO CLIMB, GAVIN! CONSUELA IS STARTING TO CLIMB THE LADDER!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: CONSUELA MAKES IT HALFWAY UP THE LADDER AND SHE’S REACHING FOR THE TITLE! SHE’S NOT QUITE TALL ENOUGH SO SHE HAS TO CLIMB A LITTLE FURTHER! CONSUELA IS ALMOST AT THE TOP NOW AND SHE NEARLY HAS HER FINGERTIPS ON THE BELT! ANDREA IS BACK UP NOW AND SHE RUSHES TO THE LADDER! ANDREA THROWS HER BODY INTO THE LADDER AND SENDS IT TEETERING!
CJ Hana: CONSUELA FALLS FROM THE LADDER AND LANDS AGAINST THE ROPES! ANDREA HAS GRABBED THE BASEBALL BAT AND SHE JABS THE HANDLE INTO CONSUELA’S RIBCAGE! NOW ANDREA IS TAKING THE BAT AND SHE’S CHOKING CONSUELA WITH IT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: LEMME GRAB THE JERGENS!!!!!
CJ Hana: ANDREA IS HANGING ONTO THE CHOKE FOR DEAR LIFE AND CONSUELA IS FADING! THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION IS GRABBING AT THAT BAT BUT SHE’S NOT ABLE TO SHAKE ANDREA OFF OF HER! ANDREA FALLS BACK AND WRAPS HER LEGS AROUND CONSUELA’S WAIST!!!! THIS DOESN’T LOOK GOOD FOR THE CHAMPION! CONSUELA’S EYES ARE FLUTTERING AND ALL THE FIGHT IS GONE FROM HER BODY! ANDREA RELEASES HER AND SHE CHECKS TO MAKE SURE CONSUELA IS OUT!
Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA PULLS HERSELF UP AND SHE QUICKLY SITS THE LADDER BACK UP! ANDREA DOESN’T HAVE IT CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE BELT SO SHE HAS TO DRAG IT TO THE CENTER OF THE RING! BUT NOW IT’S PERFECT! CLIMB YOUR SEXY ASS UP THAT LADDER ANDREA!
CJ Hana: ANDREA HAS STARTED HER CLIMB!! THESE FANS INSIDE SEOUL WORLD CUP STADIUM ARE GOING NUTS! THE HEART OF EMPIRE IS INCHING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THAT CHAMPIONSHIP! BECAUSE ANDREA IS PETIT SHE HAS TO CLIMB TO THE TOP!
Gavin Kirkland: CONSUELA IS STIRRING THOUGH! SHE’S LOOKING UP AND SEES ANDREA ABOUT TO GRAB THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP!! CONSUELA FINDS A BURST OF ENERGY AND SHE CHARGES TOWARDS THE LADDER!! SHE SCRAMBLES UP THE LADDER AND GRABS ANDREA BY THE BACK OF THE TIGHTS! PANTS HER ‘SUELA!!!
CJ Hana: ANDREA IS KICKING AT CONSUELA AND TRYING TO KNOCK HER BACK BUT CONSUELA REACHES UP AND GRABS ANDREA!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP OFF THE LADDER!!! CONSUELA AND ANDREA SLAM INTO THE MAT!!!
CJ Hana: Both of these women are down and the crowd is urging them both to get back up and continue fighting for the championship! They roll towards opposite ends of the ring and both Consuela and Andrea are dragging themselves up! Consuela is grabbing the baseball bat and Andrea is grabbing the trash can lid! Consuela charges towards Andrea and swings!
Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA DUCKS! ANDREA JAMS THE TRASH CAN LID INTO CONSUELA’S MIDSECTION AND THEN SLAMS IT ACROSS CONSUELA’S BACK! ANDREA DRAGS CONSUELA OVER TO THE LADDER AND BEGINS BEATING CONSUELA’S FACE OFF THE RUNGS!! CONSUELA IS BLEEDING FROM THE MOUTH NOW AND ANDREA JERKS CONSUELA UP AND SPIKES HER INTO THE MAT WITH A DDT! ANDREA IS BACK UP AND SHE IS STOMPING AWAY ON CONSUELA!!! ANDREA REACHES DOWN AND GRABS CONSUELA BY THE HAIR AND SHE DRAGS HER OVER TO WHERE THAT SPARE LADDER IS!! ANDREA IS SETTING THE LADDER UP BETWEEN THE ROPES AND SHE PLACES CONSUELA ON TOP OF IT!
CJ Hana: I have no idea what is going through the mind of Andrea Valentine right now but she’s back over at the other ladder now! She’s repositioning it and now she’s climbing up it! Andrea makes her way to the top and she looks down at Consuela’s body! Andrea takes one final step up the ladder and SHE IS STANDING ON THE VERY TOP OF IT! ANDREA TAKES A LOOK AT THE CROWD BEFORE SLOWLY TURNING AROUND…. :damn:!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: :damn:
CJ Hana: REVERSE 450 OFF THE LADDER! REVERSE 450!! ANDREA FUCKING VALENTINE WITH A REVERSE 450 OFF THE LADDER!!!
Gavin Kirkland: CONSUELA ROSE AVA FUCKING MOVES!!!
(Almost like it happens in slow motion, Andrea crashes into the ladder and bounces off of it. She lays on the mat in a heap, clutching her ribs and writhing around in pain.)
CJ Hana: Consuela needs to get the fuck up and start climbing right now. Andrea just committed suicide in this match with that high risk move!
(It takes a few minutes for Consuela to get back up. She looks and sees Andrea is hurt, and that’s all the champ needs to stagger over towards the ladder and start climbing.)
Gavin Kirkland: CONSUELA IS MAKING HER WAY UP THE LADDER AND SHE’S GETTING EVER SO CLOSE TO GRABBING THE BELT! ANDREA IS IN A SITTING POSITION ON THE MAT BUT SHE’S HAVING TROUBLE GETTING UP! NO DOUBT SHE’S GOT BROKEN RIBS AFTER THAT MISS, AND THAT COULD END UP BEING WHAT COSTS HER THIS CHAMPIONSHIP! CONSUELA IS HALF UP THE LADDER, AND SHE’S REACHING FOR THE BELT, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH FURTHER SHE NEEDS TO CLIMB!
CJ Hana: BUT THIS CROWD IS CHANTING FOR ANDREA! THEY ARE WILLING HER UP TO HER FEET RIGHT NOW! ANDREA LOOKS AT CONSUELA REACHING FOR THE BELT AND SHE LIMPS OVER THE LADDER! ANDREA IS CLIMBING UP THE OTHER SIDE NOW AND CONSUELA IMMEDIATELY BEGINS KICKING AT HER THROUGH THE RUNGS! ANDREA DIGS HER NAILS INTO THE LADDER AND FORCES HERSELF UP ANOTHER RUNG! CONSUELA REACHES OVER THE TOP OF THE LADDER AND GRABS ANDREA BY THE HAIR! SHE SLAMS ANDREA’S FACE OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER AND ANDREA NEARLY LOSES HER BALANCE!
Gavin Kirkland: CONSUELA REACHES FOR THE BELT, BUT ANDREA LEAPS UP AND FIRES OFF A RIGHT HAND! CONSUELA HAS TO GRAB THE LADDER TO KEEP FROM FALLING AND SHE THROWS A RIGHT HAND OF HER OWN! BOTH WOMEN ARE EXCHANGING PUNCHES RIGHT NOW, AND NEITHER ONE IS WILLING TO FALL AT THIS POINT! ANDREA TAKES ANOTHER STEP UP THE LADDER AND SHE REACHES FOR THE BELT! ANDREA HAS HER HAND ON IT AND THAT SENDS CONSUELA INTO ATTACK MODE! THE CHAMPION JUST SLAMMED HER OWN SKULL INTO ANDREA’S FACE AND BLOOD IS POURING FROM ANDREA’S NOSE AGAIN! CONSUELA TAKES ANOTHER STEP UP AND SHE GETS HER HANDS ON THE BELT! CONSUELA TAKES THE BELT AND SHE SWINGS IT! IT SLAMS INTO ANDREA’S FACE AND ANDREA SLIPS DOWN THE LADDER!
CJ Hana: CONSUELA ROSE AVA IS ABOUT TO UNHOOK THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND HEAD TO PAIN FOR PRIDE AS A CHAMPION!
Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA IS BATTERED AND SHE IS BLOODIED, BUT HERE SHE COMES! SHE SLAMS HER FIST INTO CONSUELA’S JAW AND CONSUELA HAS TO LET GO OF THE BELT TO HOLD ONTO THE LADDER! ANDREA WITH A SERIES OF FOREARM SHOTS NOW! CONSUELA FIGHTS BACK! ANDREA REACHES UP AND GRABS THE BELT, AND CONSUELA HITS HER WITH A SHOT TO THE GUT! ANDREA GRABS CONSUELA BY THE HAIR AND SLAMS HER FACE INTO THE LADDER! CONSUELA SLIPS BUT ANDREA KEEPS HER GRIP! SHE SLAMS CONSUELA’S FACE OFF THE LADDER AGAIN! YOU CAN SEE THE EMOTION IN ANDREA’S EYES RIGHT NOW! CONSUELA IS FIGHTING FOR EVERYTHING SHE HAS RIGHT NOW, BUT ANDREA IS EATING EVERY SINGLE PUNCH CONSUELA IS THROWING! ANDREA HITS CONSUELA IN THE FACE WITH A RIGHT HAND AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A FOREARM! ANDREA PEEKS UP AT THE TITLE AND SHE GRABS TWO HANDFULS OF HAIR. SHE PULLS CONSUELA UP AND CLIMBS ON THE VERY TOP OF THE LADDER. WHATEVER YOU’RE THINKING ANDREA… DON’T FUCKING DO IT!
CJ Hana: ANDREA JUMPS DOWN THE LADDER AND SLAMS CONSUELA’S FACE OFF THE TOP OF IT! THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPION FALLS TO THE MAT WHILE ANDREA SOMEHOW CATCHES HERSELF WITH ONE ARM! THE LADDER IS TEETERING AND YOU CAN SEE ANDREA JUST WILLING IT TO STOP RIGHT NOW!
Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA IS HANGING ON AND FINALLY THAT LADDER STOPS SHAKING! ANDREA FORCES HERSELF TO CLIMB UP THE FINAL FEW RUNGS AND SHE REACHES FOR THE BELT! ANDREA FUCKING VALENTINE IS UNHOOKING THE SPECIALISTS CHAMPIONSHIP! SHE IS GOING TO PAIN FOR PRIDE AS A GODDAMN CHAMPION!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(An emotional cry erupts from Andrea as “Roll With Me” by Charli XCX begins to play. The crowd shoot to their feet and start showering the brand new champion with praise.)
Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND NEW ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING SPECIALISTS CHAMPION… ANDREA VALENTINE!!!!
(Andrea gets herself into a sitting position on top of the ladder, and her bright blue eyes have tears shining in them. She looks down at the championship in her hands and hugs it to her chest. There’s a lot meaning in that Specialists Championship for Andrea, and every single person in the building knows that. Andrea looks up and glances towards the sky, briefly closing her eyes. It’s an emotional moment, and everyone can feel it right now. After a few seconds, Andrea opens her eyes back up, wipes away her tears, and points at the Pain for Pride sign. After a tumultuous season full of ups and downs, triumphant wins, and crushing losses, Andrea Valentine has once again capture a championship in Elite Answers Wrestling. The Heart of Empire never once stopped beating, and because of undeniable determination and passion for this sport and belief in herself, Andrea Valentine could now call herself a two-time Specialists Champion.)
(We fade backstage where we find Kathy Kush standing alongside Serena Bennett, the winner of the 2019 Women’s Grand Rampage. The fans in the Stadium begin to cheer for one of their favorite female elitists. Serena, hearing the crowd reaction from all the way backstage, begins to smile to herself and blush.)
Kathy Kush: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m standing by with the winner of the twenty-nineteen Women’s Grand Rampage–SERENA BENNETT!
Serena Bennett: Washpoppin’, Kathy?
Kathy Kush: Um, not so sure, Serena. You tell me? What’s “popping” with you? I see you’re all dressed up already, prepared to go head to head with Felix Hartley later this evening!
Serena Bennett: Yeah. I mean, I guess. Lowkey, I can’t wait for the day that people finally stop asking me about Felicia. I need that bitch to get up and go, this ain’t her habitat. That ring has always been my stage, I still don’t know who the fuck she think she is, actin’ like I’m just some placeholder. Nah, fuck outta here, I belong at the top. You know what they say about me, Kathy? These bitches call me the goat, all day everyday. But that dumbass bitch wanna act like she don’t know, tryna pretend that she don’t know that I’m already winnin’ this shit. And then I’m takin’ the next step, goin’ straight to Pain for Pride and I’ma be your next Women’s World Champion, you can bet on it. Felix Hartley’s just a warmup. I ain’t sweatin’ that bitch, in a few weeks, I’ma be out here main eventin’ the show of the year, and Felix will be nowhere to found. ‘Cause I’ma end her career, bury that bitch, put her ten feet in the ground, and everyone will forget about her faster than they ever learned about that dumb bitch. ‘Cause the fact is that I’m the bitch to beat around here, Felix Hartley done said it herself. She needs a victory over me, she needs so badly to fuckin’ get a W over someone out here that’s an actual fuckin’ threat. And she can say and do all she wants to try and get under my skin, her bumass don’t phase me. Shit, I had to laugh when she tried it this week, said some shit about SOSA, talmbout how she gon’ steal my man from me–girl bye, I got that man wrapped around my finger–
Kathy Kush: Not to cut you off, Serena! But I have a surprise for you!
Serena Bennett: What? A surprise? For lil’ ol’ me? You shouldn’t have!
(SOSA Henderson steps into the frame, a bouquet of flowers in his hands as he smiles wide. He extends his arms out wide to pull her in for a hug. She pushes past Kathy and jumps up to embrace him.)
SOSA Henderson: Surprise!
Serena Bennett: Thanks, boo! Whatchu doin’ here?
SOSA Henderson: Girl, you know me. I’ma always be here to support you, through thick and thin. Plus, we got a few, uh, pre-match rituals I know you got used to, so I figured it’d be helpful if I–
???: Damn, Serena. You just love making this easier for me, don’t you? Told you I was gonna snatch him up and you fucked up and delivered him right to my doorstep.
(Serena rolls her eyes and turns her head. To no surprise, she finds Felix Hartley standing behind her, hands on her hips, and also dressed in her ring gear. She flips her hair and winks as SOSA Henderson lowers his sunglasses to get a better look at her.)
Serena Bennett: Please tell me why I literally can’t go nowhere without this annoying bitch poppin’ up? For fuck’s sake, Felix, I’ma deal with your trick ass later. You ain’t see me in the middle of something? You know what, aiight, I see you itchin’ for a fight, so what’s good? You want some right here, right now?! I’m ready, sis–
(Serena steps up and attempts to take a swing at Felix, but SOSA grabs her arm and holds her back.)
Serena Bennett: SOSA, if you don’t get the fuck up off me–
Felix Hartley: Look at this bitch, all riled up, no matter what. And all I had to do was arrive to the scene, and there she goes, foaming at the mouth. You really ain’t shit, Serena, just hype, like I told you before. I sure as hell got you shook up, try to change my mind.
SOSA Henderson: Baby, baby, don’t waste your energy on this bum bitch–you’ll get your chance to take it out on her later. No need to act a fool.
Felix Hartley: Yeah, Serena. Listen to your man, let him put you in your place. Better pay attention to what he says, before you get your shit rocked again.
Serena Bennett: Bitch, the fuck are you talkin’ about?
Felix Hartley: Well, I sure as hell am not the one who lost a Championship because I got a little too heated about the ringside presence of the only woman who has the ability to wipe out the memory anything you’ve ever done for this company in 3 short seconds. That’s all you. Who knows, maybe if you had SOSA with you all those weeks ago, you’d still have that championship. Or hell, maybe you’d still even have some relevance if you never fucked with me to begin with. Stepping up to me was possibly the worst thing you could have done for your career–right after choosing this bum to be your boyfriend.
SOSA Henderson: Watch yourself, slut. Damn, how TLA let one of his poons get loose? This man needs to take better care of his merchandise. Just mad cause your pussy been ran through, so you gonna try and bring my lady down to make yourself look better. Feeling sorry for yourself ‘cause your wrestling ability ain’t up to par with your skills in the bedroom. Disrespecting Serena is like disrespecting family, and that shit don’t fly by me. You ain’t even on Serena’s level, she a porterhouse steak while you ain’t shit but a cheeseburger, no fries. Now, I’ve had enough of your fat mouth, you not gon’ sit here and disrespect my lady like that right in front of me. Watch your back before it takes someone bigger and stronger than Serena Bennett to put you back in your fucking place.
(Felix begins to fan herself.)
Felix Hartley: Alright stud, I see you. Say no more. But you already know what happened to Serena when she tried to come for me, and it’d be no different for you either, boo. Learn from your bitch’s mistakes, and mind your own damn business.
(Felix Hartley dramatically walks off while SOSA continues to restrain Serena, holding her back from chasing after Felix as we fade to a quick commercial break.)

(“Put Em Up” by Lupe Fiasco blares over the sound system. The stadium lights completely match the aura of Kassidy Heart, who sports a grim look on her face with a dark glare in her eyes. She also sports a dark colored ring attire juxtaposed with her golden blonde hair. Noticeably missing is her Iconic Cup Trophy, which is on the backburner for her mentally, as her full focus is on humbling her opponent. )
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Maria Del Rey: The following match is a singles contest scheduled for ONE FALL!!! Introducing first, from Sydney, Australia, she is “THE QUEEN OF HEARTS” & “THE MAULER”… KASSSSIIIDDDYYYYYYYYY HEEEEEEARRRRRT!!!!
CJ Hana: Matches like this always scare me Gavin; not just because of the two competitors in it, but because of the situation Raven Roberts and Kassidy Heart are in.
Gavin Kirkland: These two would have to be completely STUPID to consider this match anything less than a must-win for both of them! Let’s just call a spade a spade here, what in the HELL do you – as a competitor – think you’ve got going for yourself at Pain for Pride if you lose tonight? Hell, nothing’s even bloody promised to ya if you win! Every match this time of year must be treated like a battle for survival and for relevance, which means these two batshit psychotic malcontents are going to absolutely kill each other! Do me a favor Raven, don’t get any of that blood on Kassidy’s delicious locks, we need our commodities on brand at all times!
CJ Hana: Somehow you’ve found a way to echo my sentiments and derail my point… at the exact same time. Bravo.
(“Rise” by League of Legends hits and the stadium lights transform to fit the aura of Raven Roberts, who walks with her head held high wearing a baby blue and black ring attire and a brave face to match. Confidence protrudes from her pores, and she scans the large audience on her way down to the ring before refocusing her gaze on her opponent. )
Maria Del Rey: Her opponent… residing in Las Vegas, Nevada, she is “THE BIRD OF PREY”, “THE HUNTRESS”, RAVEEEEEEEEENNN RRRROOOBEEEEEEEEEEEERTSSS!!!!
CJ Hana: Despite the seasonal situation Roberts and Heart both find each other in, these two definitely have no love loss when it comes to each other! Vicious and cruel statements have been exchanged over the past couple of weeks about each other — and it’s one thing to say something mean spirited in the hopes of breaking your opponent’s shell, but you can tell Raven Roberts has ZERO respect for the woman opposite of the ring from her.
Gavin Kirkland: Well she makes salient points about Kassidy CJ! She has been FAR too focused on the imploding trio of the Jaded Wolfe Hearts, and she’s spent half of her time keeping the ego of Ahren Fournier at bay over on Showdown! The problem with Raven is, it’s truly pot calling the kettle black! She’s got to refocus her priorities away from distractions and capitalize on every single opportunity she may be given! She didn’t do it against Kaline, she didn’t do it against Sienna, the time to do it is NOW! … I hope to God she cannot hear me.
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
CJ Hana: WELL RAVEN ROBERTS MIGHT OF JUST HEARD YOU GAVIN, BUT SHE’S NOT COMING AFTER YOU SHE’S COMING AFTER KASSIDY HEART, SPRINTING ACROSS THE RING FOR AN ATTACK!
Gavin Kirkland: Kassidy ducks under an oncoming onslaught and backs Roberts into the corner before striking away with some rapid-fire precise strikes into the midsection! Shockingly crisp considering she’s a female wrestler, most womens wrestlers body punches look like total shite!
CJ Hana: Gavin…
Gavin Kirkland: Roberts trying her best to cover up, and Kassidy grabs a fist full of locks in order to take her out of the corner, just to club her across the jaw with a few forearms! Roberts with a wild swipe! Nobody home! Kassidy THROTTLES HER WITH A ROLLING ELBOW!!!! WOOOOW THAT WAS A WICKED ONE ALREADY! This has Raven Roberts stumbling through the ropes and dropping to her feet at ringside!
CJ Hana: Heart runs to the far side of the ring in order to rebound off the ropes –
CJ Hana: AND ROBERTS CHARGES RIGHT BACK INTO THE RING, MEETING HER HALFWAY DEAD AND CENTER IN THE RING WITH A THESZ PRESS!!! THESE LADIES ARE UNLEASHING HELL ON EACH OTHER ON THE GROUND RIGHT NOW WITH RAVEN ROBERTS HAMMERING DOWN RIGHTS AND LEFTS, WHILE HEART IS FIGHTING AN UPHILL BATTLE ON HER BACK WITH SOME JABS BEING SENT AS WELL!
CJ Hana: Kassidy manages to push Roberts back with her legs, quickly crawls towards the ropes in order to pull herself up, ROBERTS COMES RIGHT AFTER HEART! But Heart dips her shoulders down and sends Roberts up and over to the apron! Roberts slings her shoulder through the ropes nailing Heart directly in her ribs, and she shoots into the ring with a combat roll before gliding back up to her feet and nailing a REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: Nobody home! Heart ducks underneath it! Rear waistlock from behind! Roberts is fighting whatever Kassidy Heart is attempting, she’s forcing herself forward towards the ropes while it appears Heart is rearing back for a potential German suplex! Roberts kicks her feet off of the middle ropes bringing Kassidy arching back to the mat and Roberts rolling backwards out of Kassidy’s grip — AND SOMEHOW STACKING KASSIDY HEART’S SHOULDERS ONTO THE MAT!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO-
CJ Hana: Kick out by Heart! Kassidy Heart rushes up to a vertical, but Roberts is quicker to the draw, barrelling right at her with a haymaker! AGAIN KASSIDY STOPS HER IN HER TRACKS WITH A SHOT TO THE RIBS! Forearm to the jaw! She grabs a hold of Roberts by her head — but Roberts shoves her away out of frustration — OHHHHHHHHHH!!! FEROCIOUS JUMPING KNEE TO THE NOSE!!! KASSIDY HEART JUST CRUMPLES DOWN TO HER KNEES! SHE MIGHT OF JUST BROKEN KASSIDY’S NOSE!!!!
( The referee checks on Kassidy, who already has blood streaming down from her nose, and is stunned by what just happened to her. )
Gavin Kirkland: SHE’S GONNA NEED A DAMN NOSE JOB :krabs: !!!!!!! I’LL BE SHOCKED IF THAT DOESN’T DISFIGURE HER!!!!
CJ Hana: RAVEN ROBERTS SHOVES THE OFFICIAL OUT OF THE WAY, AND WE’RE SEEING THAT LOOK IN HER EYE, THAT LUST FOR BLOOD THAT WE’VE SEEN SO MANY TIMES THIS SEASON! SHE HOISTS KASSIDY UP FROM HER KNEES AND IS LOOKING TO PUT HER AWAY! THROWING HER INTO THE NEAREST ROPES, CATCHING HER ON THE REBOUND, HUNTRESS BOMB!!!! SITOUT SPINEBUSTER, BOUNCING KASS’ HEAD RIGHT OFF OF THE CANVAS, AND HOLDING IN THE PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Gavin Kirkland: KICK OUT!
( Kassidy Heart rolls out of the ring following the Huntress Bomb, and Raven Roberts sits up before shrugging her shoulders and mouthing the words “I’ve got time.” )
CJ Hana: Those were disgustingly brutal attacks delivered by the hands of Roberts, and against most opponents that would have and should have sealed the match, but even Raven Roberts herself understands that she’s not dealing with any regular opponent. She’s come well equipped, seemingly for the task at hand, as Roberts slowly crawls over to the apron nearby Kassidy who is recovering at ringside… and Roberts waits for Kassidy to return fully to a vertical base, which is taking a lot less time than even I would have anticipated. ROBERTS RUNS ACROSS THE APRON, AND POUNCES OFF FOR THE SPIKE HURRICANRANA DOWN AT RINGSIDE!!!
Gavin Kirkland: KASSIDY CATCHES HER SQUARELY ON HER SHOULDERS!!!!!!! JESUS CHRIST!!!! SHE REDIRECTS ALL OF THAT MOMENTUM WITH A POWERBOMB INTO THE BARRICADE!!! WHERE IN THE HELL DID KASSIDY HEART GET ALL OF THAT– BICYCLE KICK BY KASS!!! THAT CLEANS RAVEN’S CLOCK! SHE’S NOT DONE!!! GRABS RAVEN BY THE NAPE OF THE NECK, AND SPRINTS ACROSS RINGSIDE TO SEND HER INTO THE RINGPOST WITH AN IRISH WHIP!!! ROBERTS HITS THE POST COLLARBONE FIRST!!!! SHE TURNS AROUND LEANING BACK ON THE POST, RACKED WITH PAIN — RUNNING HIGH KNEE TO THE COLLARBONE BY KASS!!!!!
( Raven dives into the ring to avoid the oncoming attack, and Kassidy stops herself before the impact with the LED ringpost. Her jawline and upper torso have streaks of blood running down it, and she flashes a toothy scowl towards the audience before climbing back into the ring herself. )
Gavin Kirkland: If you ask me it appears as though Kassidy is much more incensed than she is injured following that onslaught from Roberts earlier! Raven Roberts was definitely caught off guard by that fact, and she crawls as fast as she can over to the turnbuckle just as Kassidy enters the ring. KASSIDY HEART CHARGES OVER TO ROBERTS AND NAILS HER WITH THE P.C.S!!!!!!! NO HELLUVA KICK DOES NOT HIT ITS MARK, ROBERTS SIDE STEPS IT AND CATCHES HER ACROSS THE FACE WITH A REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE! Acrobatic kick sends blood flying off of Kassidy’s jaw and nearly into the front row, now Roberts snapmares her out of the corner, springs off of the ropes directly behind Kassidy, and hits a BRUTAL DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! That has Kassidy turned inside out from a seated position, the momentum leading her back up to her feet — JUST TO BE KNOCKED BACK DOWN WITH ROBERTS WHO NAILS A SPRINGBOARD REVERSE ELBOW OFF OF THE ROPES IN FRONT OF KASSIDY! RAVEN ROBERTS HAS BEEN PUTTING ON EXCELLENCE SO FAR! HOOK OF BOTH LEGS AS THEY ARE HOISTED OFF OF THE MAT FOLLOWING THAT ATTACK!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!! TWWWWWWWWWWWWWW-
CJ Hana: Kick out by Kassidy Heart again. Do not let the ‘color’ fool you, Kassidy may be bloody from the nose by she is still making it clear that she is still in this. Roberts however has been coming after ‘The Mauler’ with a mauling of her own… Roberts SLAMS her fist into the side of Kassidy’s head before aggressively yelling something I won’t repeat. Now Roberts follows up by mounting over Kassidy from behind and applying a guillotine choke accompanied with bodyscissors! Constricting the air flow through Kassidy Heart’s 5’4″ frame!!! But Kassidy is keeping herself in enough of an upright position to still fight, and she’s reaching for one of Raven’s arms here—- OHH!!!!! SHE YANKS IT NEARLY OUT OF ITS SOCKET!!!!!! INTO A KIMURA!!!! FANTASTIC REVERSAL AT A TIMELY MOMENT, RAVEN’S GOT TO BE CAREFUL IN ORDER TO PREVENT ‘THANK YOU, NEXT’, BECAUSE KASSIDY’S LOOKING TO TRANSITION INTO A FLURRY OF STOMPS TO THE HEAD!
Gavin Kirkland: ROBERTS USES HER LONGER LIMBS AND TALLER FRAME AS LEVERAGE, TWISTING ‘IN’ TO THE LOCK IN ORDER TO RELIEVE THE PRESSURE… ROBERTS IS NOW STANDING OVER KASSIDY WITH KASS’ LEGS PROPPED UP, BUT ROBERTS’ RIGHT ARM STILL WELL WITHIN HER GRASP! ROBERTS FIRES AWAY WITH LEFT HAND PUNCHES TO THE FACE! OH! AND A CHOP STRAIGHT TO THE THROAT! Drops of blood splatter to the mat from the lower part of Kassidy’s face following each strike of Raven Roberts! Raven turns around holding her right arm after finally getting some reprieve — JUST TO BE DROPPED TO THE MAT COURTESY OF A BRAZILIAN HEEL HOOK! KASSI! KASSI! KASSI! OI! OI! OI!
CJ Hana: ROBERTS DESPERATELY FLAILS HER LIMBS, BUT THAT WAS A TRAP, KASSIDY DIDN’T COMMIT TO THE HEEL HOOK, INSTEAD SHE ROLLS DOWN RAVEN’S BACK AND JUMPS UP TO HER FEET TO NAIL HOME A STOMP TO THE BENT RIGHT ARM OF RAVEN ROBERTS! OUCH!!!!
( Raven Roberts rolls out of the ring and leans against the apron, favoring her right elbow. )
CJ Hana: BONE CRUNCHING stomp to the right arm from Kassidy, while Roberts curses up a storm just simply reacting to what she just endured. Two in-ring savants with a mutual bloodlust shared between each other, and they’re both feeling the effects already of the sheer caliber of competitors both of these women are. LOOK OUT!!! LOOK OUT!!! NO WAY!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!?!
CJ Hana: KASSIDY HEART JUST DELIVERED A SUICIDE DIVE TRANSITIONED INTO A CROSS ARMBREAKER, IN MIDAIR!!!
Gavin Kirkland: RAVEN ROBERTS IS SENT RIGHT ON HER FACE HERE IN FRONT OF US, AND KASSIDY HEART HAS ALL BUT TORN RAVEN ROBERTS’ RIGHT ARM COMPLETELY OUT OF ITS SOCKET!!! ‘INCREDIBLE’ DOESN’T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE WHAT WE SAW!!! RAVEN IS SCREAMING OUT IN PAIN AND IS ON THE VERGE OF CALLING IT QUITS, WHILE KASSIDY REARS BACK ON THAT DAMAGED RIGHT ARM THAT MIGHT AS WELL HAVE A BULLSEYE PAINTED ALL OVER IT! ROBERTS IS TAPPING!!! ROBERTS IS TAPPING!!! BUT IT MEANS NOTHING CJ, REGULATION IS IN THE RING ONLY, THERE IS NO MERCY ON THE THINLY PADDED FLOORS OF RINGSIDE, AND RAVEN KNOWS IT!
( Kassidy eventually releases the hold, and takes a short breather while Roberts crawls over to the ring apron out of desperation. )
Gavin Kirkland: I can’t believe Kassidy Heart just pulled that out of the wheelhouse! How is that even physically possible? It’s almost unrealistic! You know I’m starting to think this whole ‘wrestling’ thing comes off as a bit choreographed… what if… what if it IS choreographed, CJ. What if we’ve all been duped all along. What if we’re simply not in on the lie…
CJ Hana: …
Gavin Kirkland: Hold me CJ, I’m scared.
CJ Hana: Conspiracy theories aside, that was a mind boggling move from Kassidy Heart, especially in the heat of freaking battle! Roberts’ right arm hangs almost unnaturally low while she tries desperately to return to the ring. She’s using the bottom rope as a means of dragging herself back in– but KASSIDY CATCHES ROBERTS BY THE BOOT ON THE APRON! OH! Roberts cracks Heart across the jaw with a kick to the face! That causes Kassidy Heart to relent , BUT NOT FOR LONG! KASSIDY DRAGS RAVEN OFF THE APRON AND CRACKS HER RIGHT IN THE ORBITAL SOCKET WITH A WICKED HEADBUTT!!!
Ref: ONE! TWO!
CJ Hana: AND NOW KASSIDY JUMPS RIGHT ONTO RAVEN FOR ANOTHER KIMURA LOCK!!!! KIMURA LOCK ONTO THE STANDING RAVEN ROBERTS ,WITH THE LEGS WRAPPED AROUND ROBERTS’ TORSO!!! OH!!! BUT ROBERTS MAKES A LAST GASP MAD DASH TO OUR ANNOUNCE DESK, AND DRIVES KASSIDY KIDNEYS FIRST INTO THE SHARPEST EDGE OF OUR ANNOUNCE DESK!
Gavin Kirkland: I’ve screamed bloody mary just from stubbing my toe! I can’t even imagine how it must feel like to be driven full force into that sharp edge! Roberts has forced Heart to relent on the kimura lock, and she FIRES AWAY RIB-CRUSHING KNEE STRIKES TO THE MIDSECTION! She takes Kassidy by the arm, turning the corner where the ringpost is, and SENDS HER WITH ALL OF HER CONCEIVABLE MIGHT INTO THE RING STAIRS!!!!! KASSIDY’S LEGS TAKE THE BRUNT OF THE DAMAGE, SHE GOES FLIPPING OVER THE STEEL STEPS AND CRASHING DOWN TO THE FRONT OF THE RAMP, FAVORING HER KNEES!!! THAT CREATED THE SAME EXACT SOUND AS A CAR CRASH, AND WAS PROBABLY TWICE AS DAMAGING!!!!
CJ Hana: Look at Raven! She’s got a gash right by that orbital socket where she was impaled courtesy of the headbutt by Kassidy Heart! I got to tell you Gavin I do NOT like that look on Raven’s face!
( Raven Roberts climbs back into the ring, walks over to the apron nearby Kassidy, and exits it again in order to drag Kassidy Heart up off of the floor. )
CJ Hana: YIKES YIKES AND YIKES!!! ROBERTS PUTTING EVERYTHING SHE HAS, INTO SENDING KASSIDY BACK INTO THE SAME RING STEPS WITH EVEN MORE FORCE THAN BEFORE!!! KASSIDY’S HEAD BOUNCES OFF OF THE STEPS THIS TIME, AND ROBERTS FOLLOWS UP BY SENDING KASS BACK INTO THE RING, MORE THAN LIKELY FOR THE KILL!
Gavin Kirkland: Raven Roberts has a flame burning deep in her eyes, and she’s looking to extinguish the one person in her path! Roberts is at the corner perpendicular to Kassidy! Kassidy Heart has no idea where she is! Roberts has her sights set on finishing the recovering Iconic Cup Winner, and I don’t even know how Kassidy Heart has enough wherewithal to be stirring — let alone recovering! Her knees are shot, her head’s practically caved in, and she’s got no idea what kind of killer awaits her upon her rise! SAY DOWN KASSIDY, STAY DOWN!!!
CJ Hana: ROBERTS CHARGES OUT OF THE CORNER!!! ‘TALON’!!!!!!! LIGHTS OUT!!!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: KASSIDY MEETS HER HALF WAY!!! MOTHER OF GOD!!!! TORNADO DOUBLE-ARM LEG SCISSORS!!! EVEN AFTER ALL THAT, KASSIDY CATCHES ROBERTS COMPLLLLLLETELY OFF GUARD WITH ‘THE NEIMAN MARCUS OF WRESTLING ATTACKS’!!! ROBERTS TRYING TO FIGHT FOR THAT RIGHT ARM, DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO KEEP THAT DAMAGED LIMB FROM BEING TRAPPED BETWEEN KASSIDY’S LEGS!!! BUT TO NO AVAIL!!!! BOTH OF ROBERTS’ ARMS ARE SANDWICHED TOGETHER!!!! IT’S EITHER END THIS NOW OR ROBERTS SUFFERS A SEASON ENDING, IF NOT CAREER ENDING INJURY!!!! ROBERTS HAS NO CHOICE!!!! SHE VERBALLY SUBMITS!!!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
( “Put Em Up” by Lupe Fiasco plays. Kassidy Heart rolls over for a moment, blood staining her torso, and she sits up to have her arm raised by the referee with a dazed-yet-callous look in her eyes, cognizant that she’s won. )
Maria Del Rey: Here is your winner…. KAAAASSSIIIIIIIIIDYYYYYYYY HEAAAAAAAAAAART!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: These bitches just went to WAR!!! What is WRONG with them?! That’s a rhetorical question, and it doesn’t need an answer, because I like it! That was everything from knockdown-dragout to technical prowess on display!
CJ Hana: Kassidy’s performance tonight given the circumstance was all but superhuman! There was hardly a dull moment, and some of it of course was in the spirit of proving each other wrong, but the fact is both of these women fought for a win that they both KNEW they needed, and out of the two, Kassidy’s heart managed to take her — and more importantly, take Raven past the breaking point!
( Kassidy is standing and, again, has her arm raised. She looks down at the recovering Raven holding her limp right arm, and mouths off with trash talk knowing that she got the better of Raven. )
(Commercial break — an ad for Kassidy Heart lip fillers.)
(Lights go out in the arena, a lone spotlight shines on the entranceway as a video package of a woman in the dark sits there twirling a chain, laughing. Suddenly the sound of a lion roars as the video then shows another woman in the shadows clenching her first. “The Resistance” by Skillet begins to play as Minerva comes out slowly, twirling her chain, she drops to her knees as the lights come on and the chorus to “The Resistance” hits, seeing Constance Blevins standing above Minerva looking out into the crowd as they are greeted with a mix of cheers and a few boos)
Maria Del Rey: The following contest i is a tag team match scheduled for–
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Maria Del Rey: And it’s for the EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS! Introducing first, at a total combined weight of 245 POUNDS, the team of “THE LIONESS” CONSTANCE BLEVINS! AND “THE GYPSY MOTH” MINERVA…HEAVENLY HELL!
CJ Hana: Here we go, EAW Universe! Those Empire Tag Championships have been vacant for some time thanks to the departure of the useless former champions. The Queen’s Court is the last current team to hold those belts and demanded those titles to be awarded back to them. However, it’s been a burning rival between the Court and Minerva for weeks and now Constance Blevins has gotten herself involved to backup Minerva as these two are a new powerful deadly duo to the EAW Universe.
Gavin Kirkland: Deadly duo? Don’t disrespect our Queens like that CJ. Cleo and Amber are living legends that deserve better recognition. They have put the tag division on their backs before and have worked harder than any team on Empire as a unit.
CJ Hana: Of course you’re biased trash, Gavin. Nonetheless, I will agree with you. The Queen’s Court are living legends and this will be a tough challenge for this newly formed team. Thus far, it does look like their chemistry coming down the ramp together is on par.
Gavin Kirkland: Can’t judge a book by its cover. GO CLEO, BABY! WOOOOOOOO!!
CJ Hana: Unbelievable.
(Minerva looks up at Constance who nods as the young Gypsy stands up and starts to walk down the aisle with Constance behind, both women look determined and have a purpose. They reach the apron, Minerva slides in and kneels in the middle of the ring taking off her hood while Constance straddles the ropes, she hops on and stands behind Minerva with her arm raised, covered in camera flashes and ready for their opponents)
(“Woo” by Rihanna begins to play as Amber Keys and Cleopatra make their way from behind the curtains to a loud mass of boos. They are slowly approaching the ring, staring dead-eye with Minerva and Constance Blevins, who are itching for them to get inside the ring)
Maria Del Rey: And their opponents, at a combined weight of 263 POUNDS…”THE QUEEN OF THE NILE” CLEOPATRA AND THE LEGENDARY “DIRTI DIVA” AMBER KEYS… THE QUEEN’S COURT!
Gavin Kirkland: OMG! OMG! OMG! SHE’S HERE! MY BEAUTIFUL FUTURE MOTHER OF MY CHILDREN! THE LIGHT OF MY WORLD! THE LADY OF MY LIFE! I LOVE YOU, CLEOPATRA!
CJ Hana: Gavin, calm down, damn. You’re so embarrassing… Just call the–OH SHIT, GAVIN! LOOK! HEAVENLY HELL ARE NOT WAITING FOR THE COURT TO ENTER THE RING! MINERVA AND CONSTANCE BOTH JUMP ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING AND THEY’RE GOING RIGHT AFTER CLEOPATRA AND AMBER KEYS WHO ARE STARTLED BY THEIR ATTACK!
Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA TACKLES MY LOVELY QUEEN CLEO ONTO THE FLOOR AND SHE’S POUNDING THE HELL OUT OF CLEO WITH LEFT AND RIGHT FISTS! ON THE OTHER SIDE, CONSTANCE IS ALSO HANDLING BUSINESS! THE REFEREE NEEDS TO STOP THIS MADNESS! THE MATCH HASN’T EVEN STARTED YET AND THESE FOUR ARE ALREADY DOWN EACH-OTHER’S THROATS!
CJ Hana: It’s been a burning hatred between these two teams! I’m sure Heavenly Hell are still enraged about the brutal attack that the Court laid out of them a few weeks ago and they will love nothing more but to return the favor.
Gavin Kirkland: LOOK CJ! CLEO IS FIGHTING BACK! GET HER, BABE! CLEO IS PUMMELING MINERVA BUT WAIT FOR A SECOND! BLACK MIST! BLACK MIST INTO THE FACE OF CLEO! OH, NO! NOT MY QUEEN! CLEO’S RUNNING ALL AROUND THE ARENA! MINERVA HAS BLINDED THE QUEEN OF THE NILE! WHAT A CHEATER!
CJ Hana: It’s completely legal, Gavin! The bell hasn’t rung yet so the match is not officially started. Cleo needs some medical attention though! She’s screaming and yelling her lungs out and Amber Keys can’t even help her because she’s too busy trying to defend off against Constance. Minerva has a sadistic smile upon her face as Cleopatra is covering her eyes and now she’s running backstage, Gavin! She’s running to the back! Where are you going, Cleo?!
Gavin Kirkland: BABE! WHAT YOU DOING?! COME BACK HERE, NOW!
CJ Hana: I don’t know what to think about this but it damn sure doesn’t look good for Amber! But nevertheless, she has the advantage over Constance… Amber pulls Constance by the hair then swings her into the barricade as Minerva watches! BUT NOT FOR LONG! Minerva is now making her way over to Amber and she knocks into her back with a right fist! Amber didn’t see it coming and I bet she’s not aware that Cleo has run backstage after Minerva blinded her with dark mist. And now Minerva grabs Amber and throws her inside of the ring! And this match is about to start. It looks like it will be a two-on-one match as Cleopatra is gone!
Gavin Kirkland: That damn dirty ass Constance is such a low-life for doing that to my baby. I should go up and check on Cleo!
CJ Hana: Not if you don’t want a job anymore, Gavin. Stay right here! And for the love of God… It’s Minerva! Her name is Minerva! Anyway! I think the referee has calm down this situation a bit as Amber rolls to the corner turnbuckles and the bell is about to ring!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: Amber stands up on the turnbuckle then turns around to see her partner nowhere in sight! Amber is confused as Minerva stays inside the ring while Constance stands in her opposite corner. Minerva laughs at her but Amber may not have a choice here! She has to fight for the Queen’s Court until hopefully, we get an update on Cleopatra… Amber CHARGES at Minerva and goes for a quick clothesline but nobody home! Minerva dodges out of the way and now Minerva hits Amber with an Eye Poke! What is it with Minerva and trying to viciously blind people tonight? NOW MINERVA WITH A SNAP POWERSLAM ONTO AMBER! AND SHE COVERS AMBER RIGHT AFTERWARD!
CJ Hana: But a kick-out by Amber! Remember, Gavin. Amber is an all-around athlete. She’s not going down without a fight! But Minerva is a dangerous young competitor. She might have to bite off more than she can chew with the Gypsy Moth. Minerva is now sizing Amber up again and she charges at Amber! BUT AMBER DODGES OUT OF THE WAY AND A SUPERKICK TO THE MOUTH FROM AMBER TO MINERVA! OUCH! YOU CAN HEAR THAT KICK FROM BACK AT HOME IN THE UNITED STATES! AND MINERVA DROPS ON THE MAT! LOOK AT THE WILL AND FIGHT FROM AMBER KEYS! SHE KNOWS CLEO IS GONE SO SHE’LL DO WHAT SHE HAS TO DO AND SURVIVE THESE TWO WICKED MERCENARY WOMEN!
Gavin Kirkland: WAIT CJ! CONSTANCE TAGS HERSELF INTO THE MATCH AND SHE GOES AFTER AMBER WITH A DROP-KICK AND IT PLANTS AMBER ONTO THE MAT! BUT AMBER GETS BACK ONTO HER FEET QUICKLY AND SHE CHARGES BACK AT CONSTANCE!
CJ Hana: And another dropkick by Constance! Amber is dazing after those drop-kicks. She stands back up as Constance Irish whips her to the ropes then she ducks! BUT A KICK BY AMBER! Amber kicks Constance in the face as she pops up and now AMBER WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE! WOW! Constance is down on the mat as Amber Keys heads up the top turnbuckle! Look at how fast Amber is going! She’s aware that her opportunities are limited without her tag team partner in the corner to help out! AND NOW AMBER WITH DIVING HEADBUTT ONTO CONSTANCE AND IT CONNECTS! CONSTANCE IS REELING AFTER THAT HEADBUTT! AMBER MUST HAVE A HEAD OF STEEL!
Gavin Kirkland: Amber is back up again as she slides over to her opponent’s corner! She knocks Minerva down onto the floor! Minerva goes down and it serves her right for disqualifying my love from this match-up! BUT AMBER NEEDS TO WATCH OUT! CONSTANCE KIPS UP AND SHE GRABS AMBER KEYS FOR A BRAINBUSTER DDT! AND IT CONNECTS! SHE GOES FOR THE COVER ON A FALLEN AMBER KEYS!
CJ Hana: KICK-OUT BY AMBER! And now Constance is back in control! She lifts Amber back on her feet then swings her into the turnbuckles! Constance runs after Amber and she tackles Amber into the turnbuckles! Now a knee strike by Constance and Amber is barely breathing after those vicious knee shots! Meanwhile, Minerva is back up on the apron and she’s begging for a tag into the match. Constance applies the tag and Minerva runs into the match now with a knee strike of her own and now a running bulldog onto Amber Keys!
Gavin Kirkland: Now Constance wants back into the action as Minerva goes for another tag but now it looks like a double move by Heavenly Hell as Constance grabs Amber! BUT AMBER IS FIGHTING BACK! SHE PUSHES CONSTANCE AND MINERVA OFF AS SHE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES BUT SPEAR!! SPEAR!! BY MINERVA!! AND NOW THEY’RE BOTH CLIMBING THE TOP TURNBUCKLE!! MINERVA AND CONSTANCE ARE GOING FOR THE DOUBLE DESCENT ON AMBER KEYS!!
CJ Hana: Amber Keys is lifeless and this move could put an end to the Court’s dreams of winning this match but it looked all but over from the start! But I’ll applaud Amber for her will to stick in there as Minerva and Constance are getting ready to leap off the turnbuckles at the same time!! HERE IT GOES, GAVIN!! DOUBLE DESCENT CONNEC–NO!!! NOBODY HOME!! AMBER KEYS IS ABLE TO ROLL OUT OF THE WAY!!
Gavin Kirkland: YAY AMBER!! AMBER ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY AT THE RIGHT TIME AS MINERVA AND CONSTANCE BOTH GO DOWN CRASHING INSIDE THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! AND NOW AMBER IS TAKING HER TIME TO GET BACK ONTO HER FEET! SHE FINALLY GETS UP AND SHE GRABS CONSTANCE FOR A HEEL KICK TO THE SKULL!! CONSTANCE DROPS DOWN ONTO THE MAT FAST!
CJ Hana: Amber is looking to climb the turnbuckle now! She’s getting ready to climb them up but wait! Minerva hops back up and she’s charging after Amber! BUT LOOK! AMBER WITH A SUICIDE DIVE ONTO MINERVA!! AMBER JUST SAVED HER BUTT WITH THAT DIVE! But now Constance is back on her feet and she goes for a swinging neckbreaker onto Amber!! BUT AMBER COUNTERS IT INTO “MAJOR KEYS” THE CORKSCREW STUNNER CONNECTS! AMBER GOES FOR THE COVER!! THIS IS IT!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! Minerva is able to break up the pinfall! It will be impossible for Amber to win this match without causing major damage to both opponents as Minerva stands Amber back onto her feet but AMBER WITH ANOTHER CORK–NO!! MINERVA COUNTERS MAJOR KEYS INTO THE BLACK WEDDING!! AMBER KEY’S FACE IS PLANTED ONTO THE MAT AS MINERVA LIFTED HER FOR THE REVERSE STO!!
CJ Hana: THIS LOOKS ALL BUT OVER NOW! MINERVA PULLS CONSTANCE OVER FOR THE PIN AS MINERVA FALLS BACK INTO HER CORNER! THIS IS OVER! CONSTANCE’S ARM IS DRAPED OVER AMBER FOR THE PIN-FALL!
CJ Hana: NO!!! WAIT FOR A SECOND!! IT’S CLEOPATRA!! CLEO IS BACK! CLEO IS BACK! AND SHE DRAGS CONSTANCE BY HER LEG ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! AND NOW CLEO HITS BRUTALITY! CLEO WITH BRUTALITY ONTO CONSTANCE! THAT CANADIAN DESTROYER JUST ENDED CONSTANCE’S CAREER!
Gavin Kirkland: OMG! MY BABY IS BACK! SHE MUST’VE GOT SOME MEDICAL ATTENTION IN THE BACK AND NOW SHE’S FRESH AND READY TO WIN THOSE TAG TEAM BELTS!
CJ Hana: You can still see some of the black mist highlighting around Cleo’s eyes as she doesn’t look too happy at all. She’s staring down Minerva inside the ring as she steps through the ropes! Minerva starts laughing again as Cleo’s face looks red hot! She’s about to pop a blood vessel with the way she’s staring at Minerva! Cleo now screams at Minerva as she charges!! BUT MINERVA DODGES CLEO AND HITS HER WITH A QUICK CLOTHESLINE! CLEO DROPS DOWN ONTO THE MAT! WAIT THOUGH! AMBER FROM BEHIND! AMBER ATTACKS MINERVA FROM BEHIND AND THE COURT IS BACK IN CONTROL!
Gavin Kirkland: Cleo and Amber are stomping on Minerva while Constance is still laid out on the outside of the ring thanks to Cleo! And now Amber lifts Minerva up to her feet and swings her into the turnbuckles!! NOW AMBER AND CLEO ARE GOING FOR CHECKMATE KNOWN AS POETRY IN MOTION AS AMBER SITS AS THE BASE AND CLEO RUNS ONTO AMBER’S BACK AND LANDS HER LEG INTO THE FACE OF MINERVA! GREAT TAG-TEAM MANEUVER FROM THE COURT!
CJ Hana: But Constance is the legal woman! They can’t pin the downed Minerva! Cleo is now motioning for the end! What is this?! Amber drops onto the outside of the ring and she’s pulling out a table! This can’t be legal!
Gavin Kirkland: Fuck legal! Minerva deserves this after what she did to Cleo earlier! They’re about to double-powerbomb her ass through the table again!
CJ Hana: The referee is trying to stop this but Cleo and Amber are not listening as this could hurt their chances of winning the Empire Tag Titles! WAIT! HERE COMES CONSTANCE! SHE’S ON TOP OF THE BARRICADE AS SHE RUNS AND JUMPS ALL OVER AMBER AFTER SHE’S DONE SETTING UP THAT TABLE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING! Cleopatra now slides outside of the ring to help her partner! She hits Constance with some chops to the chest as the crowd cheers Cleo on! And now Cleo swings Constance into the ring–NO! REVERSAL BY CONSTANCE! AND CLEO’S FACE BOUNCES OFF THAT RING POST!
Gavin Kirkland: No! NOT THE FACE! Constance grabs Amber and pushes her back inside the ring where Minerva is back on her feet and they both grab Amber for a “DASTARDLY DEEDS” AMBER GOES CRASHING INTO THE KNEE OF CONSTANCE AND SHE COVERS AMBER!
CJ Hana: BUT AMBER IS ABLE TO KICK OUT! WHAT POISE BY AMBER TO KEEP THIS MATCH ALIVE FOR HER TEAM AS SHE’S TAKEN THE MOST DAMAGE IN THIS MATCH! But now she has to deal with Heavenly Hell! It looks like they’re going for another tag team maneuver as Minerva is looking to springboard Amber off the ropes! BUT CLEO SLIDES BACK INSIDE THE RING! CLEO WITH A SUPERKICK TO THE JAW OF MINERVA! AND MINERVA DROPS ONTO THE MAT! AND NOW CLEO STEPS OUTSIDE OF THE APRON AND SHE GOES FOR THE BLIND TAG ON AMBER!
Gavin Kirkland: Yeppieee! My love is the legal woman in this match! Amber, you can take a break, now… Cleo’s got this! Constance is ready for Cleo as she CHARGES at her but Cleo with a hip-toss! Constance goes down but she hops back up! NOW CLEO GRABS CONSTANCE AND SWINGS HER INTO THE RING ROPES! BUT CALF KICK CONNECTS! CONSTANCE HITS THE CALF KICK ON CLEOPATRA! OUCH!
CJ Hana: Constance used a lot of will-power with that calf-kick. She going for the STO Driver now! SHE LIFTS CLEO UP FOR LIONESSFIRE!!! NO!! CLEO COUNTERS HER INTO THE CLEOOOOOO LOCK!!! THE CLEO LOCK IS APPLIED ON CONSTANCE!!! AND THIS MATCH COULD BE OVER!!!
Gavin Kirkland: QUEEN’S COURT ARE ABOUT TO BECOME TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS HERE TONIGHT! CLEO IS APPLYING HEAVY PRESSURE WITH THE CLEO LOCK AND CONSTANCE IS SCREAMING AND CLAWING FOR A WAY OUT OF THIS HEAVY SUBMISSION MOVE! MINERVA IS NOWHERE TO BE SEEN AS CLEO IS BEGGING FOR CONSTANCE TO QUIT! CONSTANCE IS ABLE TO SNAP, CJ! THE REFEREE NEEDS TO RING THE BELL AND CALL IT A DAY!
CJ Hana: Not so fast, Gavin! MINERVA HOPS BACK INSIDE THE RING AND SHE HITS CLEO WITH A BASEBALL SLIDE DROPKICK! CLEO IS FORCED TO RELEASE CONSTANCE! And now Minerva grabs Cleo again for a German suplex that connects! HERE COMES AMBER AGAIN! ANDDDD SHE’S GOING FOR AMBER ALERT!! AMBER ALERT!!!!
Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA WAS JUST BROKEN IN HALF WITH THAT SPEAR AND AMBER LOOKS DOWN ON THE OUT-COLD MINE–SHE BETTER TURN AROUND BECAUSE CONSTANCE IS BACK UP AND SHE HITS THE LIONESSFIRE ONTO AMBER!!! IT CONNECTS–NOW CLEO IS BACK UP AND HAS CONSTANCE FOR ANOTHER BRUTALITY!!! NO!! CONSTANCE IS ABLE TO COUNTER IT INTO LIONESSFIRE!!! CONSTANCE IS ON A ROLL AND THIS COULD BE OVER!!! SHE GOES FOR THE COVER ON CLEOPATRA!!
CJ Hana: What?! I can’t believe it! Cleo is able to kick out! CLEO KICK OUTS! Constance can’t believe it! She thought the Empire Tag Team Championships were in their grasp right there! And now Constance marches over to her partner Minerva and tries to wake up back up! Constance is smelling the end of this! She wants to stick a fork in it right now as Amber is still laid out and Cleo is barely moving inside the ring! Minerva is back up as Constance signals for “No Glory End Of Story” on the Queen of the Nile! Constance picks Cleo up in the electric hair as Minerva is climbing the second turnbuckle as she’s about to leap for the modified cutter!! BUT WAIT FOR A SECOND! AMBER IS BACK UP! AND PUSHES MINERVA OFF THAT SECOND ROPE, ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
Gavin Kirkland: Constance has no choice but to drop Cleo as she goes after Amber! BUT CHOPS CONSTANCE INTO THE CHEST–CONSTANCE GRABS AMBER’S ARM INTO THE STO POSITION! SHE’S GOING FOR LIONESSFIRE AGAIN ON AMBER!! WAIT A MINUTE! AMBER BITES CONSTANCE’S ARM! WHAT A CHEAP MOVE AND THE REFEREE DIDN’T CATCH IT!
CJ Hana: Amber is lucky as Constance drops Amber to check on her arm! AND NOW AMBER ALERT!! AMBER ALERT!!! CONSTANCE DROPS ONTO THE MAT! AND THIS COULD BE ALL BUT OVER FOR HEAVENLY HELL!! AMBER IS NOW APPROACHING THE TOP TURNBUCKLES THOUGH!! COULD THIS BE?! “THE DIRTI DIVE!” FROG-SPLASH CONNECTS!!! FROG SPLASH ONTO THE UNCONSCIOUS CONSTANCE BLEVINS!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO!! CONSTANCE MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND!! BUT AMBER CATCHES HERSELF AND LANDS ONTO HER FEET!! AMBER GRABS CONSTANCE AGAIN HOWEVER MINERVA SLIDES BACK INSIDE OF THE RING AND GRABS AMBER FROM OUT OF NOWHERE!
CJ Hana: LOOK! HERE COMES CLEO AND SHE PULLS MINERVA AROUND AND WHAT THE HELL?! BLACK MIST TO THE FACE OF MINERVA! CLEO JUST SPAT OUT BLACK MIST INTO THE FACE OF MINERVA!!
Gavin Kirkland: NO! CJ! CLEO MISSED! MINERVA DUCKS AS THE BLACK MIST GOES INTO AMBER KEY’S FACE!! AMBER IS SCREAMING AS THAT MIST HAS BLINDED HER IN THE EYES AND CLEO IS STUNNED! SHE’S GOING OVER TO CHECK ON HER PARTNER AND CALLING FOR MEDICAL ATTENTION!
CJ Hana: Amber rolls outside of the ring, covering her eyes as EMTs rush down to check on her to get rid of the black mist so she can continue the match. Cleo is still in shock while watching her partner being aided to…And Cleo is mouthing words at Amber from inside the ring.
Cleo: (off-mic) I’m sorry! I’m sorry!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT CLEO! BABE! WATCH OUT! CLEO TURNS AROUND TO MINERVA AND CONSTANCE WHO ARE STANDING RIGHT BEHIND HER! “FALLEN ANGEL!!!” MINERVA BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND HITS A DEVASTATING MAFIA KICK TO CLEO’S SKULL! AND NOW CONSTANCE WITH THE LIONESS PRIDE TO FOLLOW UP!!! AND THE COVER ON CLEO!!!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Maria Del Rey: Here are your winners and the NEWWWWWWW EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…HEAVENNNNLLLLLLLYYYYYYY HELLLLLLLL!!!
(“The Resistance” by Skillet plays as Minerva and Constance Blevins are rewarded the Empire Tag belts. Their hands are raised in victory and the crowd rises to their feet to celebrate with them. Constance and Minerva, each holding a title belt in their hand, look down at their new titles and smile, first at the belts, then at each other. They each hop on top of a turnbuckle to celebrate, raising their titles high in the air, thankful to finally put an end to the Queen’s Court’s tormenting over the past few months. They continue to celebrate the coveted belts while Amber Keys is still being aided and Cleopatra is shown laid out in the middle of the ring.)
CJ Hana: They did it, Gavin! Heavenly Hell was able to get the huge upset! Two young ladies were able to beat the legends here tonight. Fair and square!
Gavin Kirkland: I wouldn’t call it all the way fair, CJ! But congratulations to them… This was one hell of a match and I’m still proud of the way the Court performed tonight.
(As Minerva and Constance continue to celebrate in the middle of the ring, Amber Keys has finally become aware of the events that transpired. She looks inside the ring with a sadistic facial expression at the new Empire Tag Champions while they taunt around her partner, Cleo. Amber angrily walks over to the time-keeper and she grabs a steel chair then slides inside the ring but Heavenly Hell are able to roll out in time as Amber stares them down with eyes of revenge)
CJ Hana: Uh oh. Amber Keys doesn’t look too happy. I’d watch out if I were Heavenly Hell. I still think this rivalry is far from over. It looks like Cleopatra has finally regained her consciousness as she stands back up inside the ring and looks over at Amber with the steel chair in her hand. Cleopatra tries to pull Amber in for a hug but it doesn’t look like Amber wants any affection from her partner right now. Keys stares blankly at Cleopatra, who tries to plead with the Dirti Diva again.
Cleopatra: (off-mic) I’m sorry, Amber… I love you.
Gavin Kirkland: Awwww… Do you see guys? This is what friendship is all about. Even after a tough loss, these two are able to put it back together and look forward to their future.
CJ Hana: HOLD UP A SECOND, GAVIN!! AMBER KEYS JUST PLANTED CLEOPATRA WITH THE STEEL CHAIR! OH MY GOD! MY EYES ARE DECEIVING ME RIGHT NOW!! THE ENTIRE ARENA HAS WENT QUIET BECAUSE THEY’RE STUNNED BY THIS BETRAYAL! AND AS THEY SHOULD BE! CLEOPATRA GOES CRASHING DOWN ONTO THE MAT! CLEO DID NOT SEE THAT COMING! AMBER IS DERANGED RIGHT NOW!
Gavin Kirkland: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
CJ Hana: AMBER IS LETTING OUT HER FRUSTRATION ON HER PARTNER! SHE’S STOMPING THE HELL OUT OF THE LIFELESS CLEOPATRA!! CLEO IS SCREAMING IN AGONY AND TRYING TO PLEAD FOR HELP! AMBER ISN’T LETTING UP THOUGH! SHE’S TRYING TO STOMP A MUDHOLE INTO CLEO’S BODY!
Amber Keys: (off-mic) Get up, bitch! Come get some more! I’m sick and tired of your sorry ass!
Gavin Kirkland: DID SHE REALLY JUST SAY THAT, CJ?! NOT MY QUEEN! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING, AMBER?!
CJ Hana: Amber Keys is sizing Cleopatra up in the corner! She’s going to spear the hell out of Cleo! AND LOOK GAVIN! CLEO IS BUSTED OPEN! SHE HAS A CUT ON HER FOREHEAD FROM THAT CHAIRSHOT!
Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA! CONSTANCE! COME BACK AND HELP CLEO! YOU KNOW WHAT? FUCK IT! I HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!
CJ Hana: Gavin, what are you doing?! Get back here!
(The crowd turns to cheers as Gavin Kirkland drops his headset and tries to run in the middle of the ring to help Cleo)
Gavin Kirkland (off-mic): Amber, please…I’m begging you to stop. She’s your best friend. What’s gotten into you?
CJ Hana: I don’t know what my commentary partner is thinking, ladies and gentlemen but I will commend him for trying to help Cleo from being destroyed here tonight. I think Amber starting to listen to my partner’s advice. After all, Cleo is her best friend and she needs to rethink her actions before this gets even worse. Come on Amber! Not the–OH LORD!! AMBER ALERT!! AMBER ALERT ON GAVIN KIRKLAND!! I told Gavin to keep his ass in his seat! Amber just ran through Gavin as he rolls onto the outside of the ring while holding his stomach. I think-Good God, I hope he’ll be okay! I’m sure Gavin will learn next time to listen to me.
(The bloodied faced Cleopatra finally stands back onto her feet and dazed as she lifts herself into a fighting stance in front of Amber Keys. But she’s too far confused. Amber toys with her as she thumps Cleopatra in the head countless times)
Amber Keys: (off-mic) Try and fucking stop me. What you gonna do? HUH?! Not a damn thing, that’s what.
CJ Hana: C’mon, Amber! This is your best friend! Amber is steadily toying with her… Cleo is defenseless as she turns into… AMBER ALERT!!! AMBER ALERT TO CLEOPATRA!! AMBER KEYS JUST WRECKED THROUGH CLEOPATRA!! AND SHE’S NOT EVEN DONE!! AMBER IS NOW SITTING ON TOP OF CLEOPATRA AND POUNDING CLEO BACK AND FORTH WITH FIERCE FISTS!! MY GOD! SOMEBODY GET OUT HERE AND HELP CLEOPATRA!!!
(Referee’s and EAW officials run down the ramp to grab Amber off Cleopatra but Amber responds by grabbing the steel chair again and swinging it near them as they quickly exit the ring)
CJ Hana: Those officials want no part of Amber… She’s a mad woman right now! Heavenly Hell won the tag belts and she just snapped. My commentary partner is down. Cleopatra has been beaten down to a bloody pulp. AND NOW WHAT? OH NO! COME ON, AMBER! NOT THIS WAY!
(Amber Keys rolls Cleopatra onto the outside of the ring and starts pounding her again then on the wooden table that was set up earlier during their match. Amber climbs on the top turnbuckles as the downed Cleopatra lays on the table)
CJ Hana: Oh, no… Oh, no… SHE’S GOING TO KILL CLEOPATRA!!! OH NO!!! THE DIRTI DIVE ONTO THE TABLE!!! AMBER KEYS HITS THE DIRTI DIVE!! AND CLEOPATRA GOES CRASHES THROUGH THE TABLE!!!
(Replay shows Amber Keys hitting the Dirti Dive onto Cleopatra. Afterward, more EMTs and paramedic employees rush down to the ring with a stretcher for the devastation and destruction of Cleopatra by the hands of her tag team partner. Amber Keys looks down at Cleopatra as the camera zooms in on her face while she walks up to the ramp to various boos throughout the arena)
Amber Keys: (off-mic) Court Dismissed.
CJ Hana: I can’t believe this has happened. I just want to know WHY! Why, Amber? WHY?!
(Speaking of great moments in tag team betrayal, the camera fades into backstage where Celes Dumont, Karina-Ann and Miho Li, the trio who turned on Io Ishimori in the Tornado Tag Team Match earlier tonight. Karina and Celes are laughing and feeling proud about their little plan going according to plan. They accomplished what they needed to in the ring by beating up and embarrassing Io. Miho walks slowly with her head down, following closely behind Celes and Karina)
???: Miho Li, could I have a word with you?
(Kathy Kush enters the scene with a microphone in her possession. The microphone is near Miho’s face as she is feeling uncomfortable about that.)
Miho Li: Make it quick–please. Not really in the mood to talk.
Kathy Kush: All we gotta know is…why did you attack Io Ishimori?
(Miho Li sighs deeply and then turns to Celes Dumont, who smiles and nods slowly. Miho turns back to Kathy not before sighing and shaking her head slowly again.)
Celes Dumont: Yes, Miho. Why did you attack Io? Go ahead, tell her.
Miho Li: The real question should be: why didn’t I attack Io Ishimori sooner? (Miho sighs.) I mean, I don’t know how much longer I could have taken being in the same ring as Io and that stupid stuffed animal, you know? This may come as a shock to people, who thought that Io and I were such in perfect sync in the ring. We we in sync. We did display that chemistry even though we had different perspectives, but it all made sense to me in the end — blood is, uh, truly thicker than water. No one knows me better than…family. One of the reasons I’m here is to live up to my family name and make them proud after all. My cousin, Celes Dumont and Karina-Ann are two women who are as hungry as me to leave our mark on Empire. I couldn’t continue to forget that, despite all that Io and I accomplished together in a short amount of time–
Karina-Ann (Interjects): Miho Li made the best decision by siding with us. We a new addition to our team, it has made us so much stronger. Celes and Miho have chemistry by being family. Celes and I have chemistry due to teaming for the past six months. There is nothing that can stop us now. With the Crowe’s Nest, Queen’s Court, and Jaded Wolfe Hearts out of the way, there is not one force in our way from making this brand ours.
Celes Dumont (chimes in): And, that starts with the Specialists Championship, Kathy. It didn’t matter if it was Andrea Valentine or Consuela Rose Ava who won that damn ladder match, but I’m going to be the first one in line to get my shot at the championship. I came so close to capturing the championship from Consuela two weeks ago. And Andrea will be a piece of cake. I know the next time I go after the title, I am going to win. I’ve said this a few times — this new side of me cannot be held back. That loss two weeks ago has motivated me to improve and get better. Now Andrea is going to need to be on a look out for that. My intentions of becoming Specialists Championship are not done yet and will not be done until I get my hands on that title.
Karina-Ann: We’re done talking.
(Fatal Destiny walks away from the scene, leaving Kathy Kush to look at the direction they walked away from.)
(The lights dim everywhere in the arena except for the entrance as “Chun-Li” by Nicki Minaj begins to play and the lights turn into a mix of baby pink and red. Felix Hartley walks out onto the ramp, dawned in a full length red fur coat as she’s met with a mix of cheers and boos)
“Ayo, look like I’m goin’ for a swim
Dunked on ’em, now I’m swingin’ off the rim
Bitch ain’t comin’ off the bench
While I’m comin’ off the court fully drenched
Here go some haterade, get ya thirst quenched
Styled on ’em in this Burberry trench
These birds copy every word, every inch,
But gang gang got the hammer and the wrench”
(She stands still, her hands fidgeting with the opening of her jacket as she seductively mouths the lyrics to her theme song. She walks down the ramp slowly, one foot in front of the other playing to the camera and ignoring the fans on either side of her.)
“Ayo I been on, bitch you been conned
Bentley tints on, Fendi prints on
I mean I been Storm, X-Men been formed
He keep on dialin’ Nicki, like the Prince song”
Maria Del Rey: The following match is an 45 Minutre Ironwoman Match! Introducing first, from Las Vegas, Nevada and weighing in at 114 POUNDS…. SHE IS THE ASS, CLASS & SASS… FEEEEELLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIXXXXX HAAAAARRRRRRTLLLLLLLEEEEEY!
(Felix flips her long red locks and twirls around as she approaches the apron. She climbs up the stairs and stands in the middle of the apron, slowly removing her fur. Tossing it aside, she bends down, slowly running her hands up her legs and flips her hair, a grin plastered across her perfectly bronzed face. She climbs into the ring and taunts the fans before hanging over the top rope, giving the fans a clear view down her top before sending a wink and a kiss into the camera.)
CJ Hana: Gavin, Gavin.. are you okay?
Gavin Kirkland: First of all: ow! My ribs are killing me, CJ but I think I’ll be fine to go… I hope something catches up with that little bitch Amber. She’s certainly got one thing coming for her and I’ll make sure I’m front row to see it.
CJ Hana: Well it’s great to hear that you’re fine, Gavin. Next time, just try to keep it professional, listen to what I tell you, and these things wouldn’t happen. Anyway, we have a special match next up for you. This next clash will be a forty-five minute showdown between Empire’s top talent. Felix Hartley is a young performer, who’s not afraid to show off some of her assets. On the other side, you have Serena Bennett, who is not afraid to talk shit in your face and she’s got the skill-level to back it up.
Gavin Kirkland: If my body wasn’t aching, I’d definitely say that Felix Hartley is one fine ass piece of work. But I don’t think these people will believe she’s capable of beating Serena Bennett.
CJ Hana: Understandable considering Serena Bennett has to be one of the most successful individuals to come into the EAW without even being here for a year thus far. But Felix has shared some of that same success. She’s unbeaten and she’s looking to remain that way for a long time. I hope Serena has done her homework on this feisty newcomer.
(“Surfin’ (ft. Pharrell Williams)” by Kid Cudi transitions into play as Serena Bennett comes out on stage donning a light blue biker jacket and cool dark shades. She’s smiling wide and showing off her jewelry and skips down the ramp, slapping hands with fans along the way)
Maria Del Rey: And her opponent, from Los Angeles, California and weighing in at 114 POUNDS… SHE IS THE 2019 WOMEN’S GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER… SERRRREEEEEENNNNNAAAAA BENNNNNEEEEEETTTT!
(Serena slides into the ring and upon entry, she jumps onto the middle turnbuckle to pose before jumping down and hopping in place in the corner while staring down Felix Hartley who’s acting all seductively towards the audience.)
Gavin Kirkland: These two ladies were the highlight for the Empire roster at Grand Rampage as this little feud between them dates all the way back when Serena was Specialists Champion. Felix was the main reason that Serena was unable to retain her belt against Consuela on that night. But I guess you can say now, Felix was just doing Serena a favor and it worked! Serena didn’t have to focus on defending a title that’s not even on her level anymore. Because Serena is next in line to face off against the World Women’s Champion at the grandest stage of em all. Pain for Pride.
CJ Hana: Good acknowledgement, Gavin. I think you’re feeling much better. Let’s not forget to mention again that this match will go on for 45 minutes. Serena and Felix will have the privilege to tear each-other apart until that timer hits zero. The winner of the match will have the most pin-falls or submission. This should finally stop the blood from leaking out of this feud between them. Either way, I’m banking on this to be an instant classic that no one saw coming.
(Time Remaining: 45:00|Bennett – 0 Hartley- 0)
(Ding! Ding! Ding)
Gavin Kirkland: And the bell has rung as the time has started! Serena Bennett and Felix Hartley are staring each-other down in the ring! Who will make the first move? They square each-other up as they lock arms! Serena is able to move swiftly around Felix as she ends up behind Felix while holding her waist but Felix comes back with a hip toss! However, Serena leaps back into the action with headlock! But Felix with another counter as these two are just showing off for the world now!
CJ Hana: Now they both stop and stare at each-other again but this time, Serena is being a little more vocal as she yells and taunts Felix in the face…
Serena: (off-mic) Yeah, now what? HOE!
Gavin Kirkland: Felix shrugs her shoulders and starts wandering around as she looks back at Serena…
Felix (sucking her finger): Where SOSA at?
CJ Hana: I don’t think that was a smart move by Felix! Serena is livid now! She CHARGES after Felix and quickly grabs a handful of her red-hair! Now Serena with a german suplex onto the mat! Felix has to careful with her choice of words because the madder Serena gets, the more danger you’ve just set up for yourself. Serena is in full control as Felix is trying desperately to reach a rope but Serena with a kick to the back as Felix drops down on the mat but she continues to will herself by crawling on her knees.
Serena: (off-mic) Yeah, I bet you’re used to that position, huh?
Gavin Kirkland: Serena seems to be mocking Felix Hartley’s character but I think she’s had enough! Serena lifts Felix back onto her feet and shes goes for a running bulldog while grabbing onto the head of Felix! BUT WAIT FOR A SECOND! FELIX IS ABLE TO COUNTER OUT AGAIN! FELIX TURNS SERENA AROUND FOR A TORNADO DDT AND IT CONNECTS!! FELIX GOES FOR THE FIRST COVER OF THE MATCH!
CJ Hana: But Serena kick’s out after two! I’m sure Felix knows what she’s gotten herself into as she quickly pulls Serena into the top turnbuckle and uses her leg to choke the daylight savings out of Bennett! The referee is able to break up the leg choke but Felix goes for an elbow smash! She cracks Serena in the head with those hard elbows. And now Felix is looking for something else! She’s climbing the top turnbuckle but she better watch out! Serena Bennet is quick on her feet! Serena hops onto the turnbuckle with Felix and she grabs Felix for a top-rope suplex! AND IT CONNECTS! FELIX GOES CRASHING DOWN ONTO THE MAT! AND NOW LOOK, GAVIN! SERENA TRANSITIONS THE SUPLEX INTO THE CROSSFACE! SHE HAS THE CROSSFACE APPLIED ON FELIX! SERENA IS LOOKING TO SCORE EARLY IN THIS MATCH!
Gavin Kirkland: Felix is trying desperately to crawl her way to the ropes but I don’t think she has enough streng–WAIT A SECOND! FELIX’S BACK FOOT IS ABLE TO LAND ON THE ROPES AND THE REFEREE SEES IT! HE BREAKS UP THE SUBMISSION BY SERENA BENNETT! Serena is not happy with the way the submission was broken up and you can tell she wanted to snap Felix right then and there but this match continues zero-zero. Felix is in a dangerous position now! Serena Bennett is a submission specialist so I hope she’s aware that one mistake might cost her in the long-run!
CJ Hana: Serena is sizing Felix up again and she runs towards her for a clothesline! It connects as Felix drops down onto the mat. Serena is not letting up on Felix and these fans are loving every single minute of it. You can say that Serena got her pay-back on Felix at the Grand Rampage but this will be an ultimate testament between the two. Serena grabs Felix for DDT move! BUT WAIT! FELIX WITH A ROLL-UP ON SERENA OUT OF NOWHERE!
(Time Remaining: 35:12 | Hartley – 1 Bennett 0)
Gavin Kirkland: I can’t believe it! Felix is able to gain one up on Serena with a roll-up! Serena can’t believe it either as she turns around in frustration! Felix raises her hand as this match is already won for her but it’s far from it! Serena goes after Felix again with lefts and rights! She’s pounding Felix with deadly shots and Hartley has not choice but to cover up! Serena now is looking for an Anaconda Vice on Felix!! BUT FELIX IS ABLE TO ROLL ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING TO AVOID FURTHER DAMAGE FROM SERENA!
CJ Hana: You can tell that Felix will try to run away from this match all day long like she’s Floyd Mayweather in order to seal the W. BECAUSE HERE COMES SERENA! SHE’S RUNNING AFTER FELIX! BUT FELIX IS RUNNING AROUND THE RING AND IT LOOKS LIKE THESE TWO ARE PLAYING TAG WITH-OTHER! BUT WAIT! FELIX IS ABLE TO STOP AS SHE QUICKLY PUSHES THE RING STEPS IN FRONT OF SERENA, CAUSING FOR HER TO TRIP AND LAND HER FACE ONTO THE RING APRON! OUCH! SHE’S DEFINITELY GOING TO BE FEELING THAT MUCH WORSE IN THE MORNING!
Gavin Kirkland: That looked more painful than my ribs being decapitated by Amber Keys earlier. Felix is on a roll now as Serena is down and she’s in full control with the clock ticking. Serena needs to get her head in the game before Felix tries–WHAT IS THIS? Felix is making her way towards the barricade and jumps over it! She ducks and hides by it while Serena is regaining full consciousness! Serena doesn’t know where Felix is at as she circles the ring again, near the crowd in Korea! BUT LOOK OUT! FELIX JUMPS FROM OVER THE BARRICADE BEHIND SERENA AND FELIX WITH A HARD CARTWHEEL KICK UPSIDE THE HEAD OF SERENA BENNETT! FELIX IS MAKING AN EXAMPLE OUT OF SERENA TONIGHT! SHE’S MAKING OUR GRAND RAMPAGE WINNER LOOK FOOLISH!
CJ Hana: Serena doesn’t know what hit her, that’s for sure and Felix rolls her back inside the ring then makes her way up the turnbuckles again! FELIX IS GOING FOR A SPLIT-LEGGED MOONSAULT! BUT SERENA WITH A PUNCH TO THE GUT OF FELIX!! AND NOW SERENA SWINGS FELIX OFF THE RING ROPES BUT FELIX LEAPS IN THE AIR FOR THE ASS CLASS AND SASS! HER LEGS SWING AROUND THE NECK OF SERENA BENNETT, COMPETING THE TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS! AND IT CONNECTS! ANOTHER PIN BY FELIX!
(Time Remaining: 28: 01| Hartley – 2 Bennett – 0)
CJ Hana: She’s done it, Gavin! Felix is way ahead of the game now but I still won’t count Serena out of this one! It’s still early with a lot of more time left on the clock. However, Serena must try something to keep Felix down because there’s no way she’s winning this match being outsmarted by the witty Hartley gal! AND NOW FELIX IS VERY HAPPY AND SATISFIED AS SHE LIFTS SERENA BACK UP FOR ANOTHER FINISHING MANEUVER!
Gavin Kirkland: THE ME TOO MOVEMENT!! FELIX HAS SERENA SET UP FOR THE CANADIAN DESTROYER BUT NO! A COUNTER BY BENNETT INTO A SNAPMARE SUPLEX! SERENA JUST SAVED HERSELF WITH THAT QUICK MOVE! Imagine being down 3-0? This isn’t some basketball playoff game. There’s no way Serena would be able to come back from that! If Serena knows better, she best to look put a score up on the board. Right now, Felix is making our GR Winner look like an amaturer! But Serena is back up again….She grabs Felix and whips her into the ropes! RUNNING SUPERKICK! NO!! FELIX CATCHES SERENA’S FOOT! THIS CAN’T BE GOOD!
CJ Hana: IT ISN’T! BECAUSE SERENA IS ABLE TO HIT THE DRAGON WHIP! SHE JUST TURNED THE TABLES ON FELIX WITH THAT ONE! Felix is laid out holding her jaw afterwards and now Serena drags Felix by the legs and starts stomping on each part! She even stumbles by Felix’s groin area with a kick between Felix’s inner thigh! AND NOW SERENA TURNS FELIX AROUND FOR THE BOSTON CRAB!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT FELIX ENDS UP PUSHING SERENA OFF WITH HER LEGS! AND NOW FELIX TRIES TO RUN ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING YET AGAIN!!
CJ Hana: BASEBALL SLIDE!! SERENA IS ABLE TO KICK FELIX TO THE BACK OF HER HEAD WITH THAT LOUD NOISE. Felix rolls on the ground as Serena goes up the top turnbuckles! What is she doing, Gavin?! Serena needs to be careful… You have everyone depending on you, Serena! Getting injured should be the last thing on your mind! BUT SHE’S GOING FOR IT ANYWAY!! SERENA GOES FOR THE DIVING CROSSBODY ONTO THE OUTSIDE BUT FELIX ENDS UP MOVING OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST SECOND! SERENA CRASHES DOWN ON THE FLOOR WHILE FELIX TRIES TO TAKE AN ADVANTAGE!
Gavin Kirkland: Felix rolls Serena back inside the ring after that vicious daredevil move and goes for another cover!
CJ Hana: Kick out by Serena after two! We’re running up to able 20 minutes now and Serena still doesn’t have a pin-fall on the board. She might start to get desperate later on if nothing else works out. Until then, Felix is back on her feet and she has Serena in a bulldog position! SHE’S GOING FOR THE DOGGYSTYLE ON SEREN–WAIT A SECOND! SERENA IS ABLE TO COUNTER AROUND WITH A NECKBREAKER! SERENA BETTER GO FOR THE COVER AND SHE DOES!
Gavin Kirkland: BUT A KICK-OUT BY FELIX! That was a close call for Felix and she knows it! Serena has a bit of fire in her eyes now! She knows the time remaining on the clock! It’s only 17 minutes remaining and she’s about to start going for the kill! But Serena ends up Irish whipping Felix into the top turnbuckles instead! AND SHE CHARGES AFTER HER WITH A BEAR HUG BUT FELIX IS ABLE TO RAKE THE EYES OF SERENA BENNETT! AND NOW WHAT?! FELIX IS HEADING ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLES! SHE’S ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING REAL DANGEROUS–
CJ Hana: HOLD UP AGAIN! SERENA BOUNCES ON THE ROPES WITH HER! SERENA GOES FOR ANOTHER SUPLEX OFF THE TOP ROPES! BUT FELIX IS FIGHTING OUT OF IT! SHE DOESN’T WANT TO LET GO! FELIX NOW WITH A PUNCH TO SERENA’S THROAT! THEN SHE GRABS SERENA BY THE NECK AND OH MY!!! DOGGY STYLE FROM THE TOP ROPES!! AND FELIX LANDED IT PERFECTLY FOR ANOTHER COVER!
(Time Remaining: 13:50|Hartley – 3 Bennett – 0)
Gavin Kirkland: This isn’t looking good at all for Serena! Felix is completely dominating with 3 wins to her zero with only 13 minutes left in this match-up. I think this is about over if you ask me. Bennett came to play but Felix has shown more determination to actually win. And now Felix is laughing up a storm inside the ring. She knows that Serena is incapable of mounting a comeback! There’s no way with the type of in-ring caliber opponent Felix is that Serena will can pin her three times, let alone twice in less than 15 minutes! And now Felix is feeling even proud of herself as she walks over to the downed Serena. Felix hits her with a couple of kicks, slowly picking her away at the fallen Serena Bennett!
CJ Hana: And now Felix with another kick–WAIT! SERENA CATCHES FELIX’S FOOT AND GUESS WHAT, GAVIN?! SERENA FLIPS FELIX INTO THE AIR AS FELIX LANDS ON HER STOMACH! OUCH… AND NOW LOOK AT THIS!!! SERENA WITH A BACKFLIP OVER FELIX INTO A MUTA LOCK POSITION! SHE HAS SERENITY HOLD IN LOCK!! AND WITH NO HESITATION, FELIX TAPS OUT!! FELIX TAPS!!!
(Time Remaining: 11:34|Hartley – 3 Bennett -1)
Gavin Kirkland: And just like that, Serena is able to finally strike on the board! But smart move by Felix! Felix didn’t want Serena to cause further damage with that deadly submission so she chunked up a loss since she’s already sitting comfortably with three wins.
CJ Hana: I wouldn’t get too comfortable though, Gavin! This is Serena we’re talking about… Not some random Empire bimbo! Anyway, Serena knows the clock is against her as she pulls Felix back up to her feet–BUT FELIX PUSHES OFF! AND NOW FELIX WITH A WHIP TO THE TURNBUCKLE BUT SERENA IS ABLE TO REVERSE IT!!! SERENA RUNS AFTER FELIX!
Gavin Kirkland: WITH THE SHITS!!! SERENA SHOOTS TWO KICKS TO FELIX’S SKULL THEN A JUMPING BACK KICK AS FELIX CRASHES DOWN HARD TO THE MAT! AND HERE’S A COVER BY SERENA!
(Time Remaining: 10:20| Hartley – 3 Bennett – 2)
CJ Hana: BAH GAWD! Serena has managed to come back and we still have 10 minutes remaining in this match-up! Felix is starting to choke her landslide victory as Serena gets back up to her feet and she’s looking for blood! SHE CHARGES AT FELIX! BUT FELIX DUCKS AS SERENA GOES CRASHING ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!! AND NOW FELIX BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES… AND LOOK AT THIS!! A JUMPING MOONSAULT ONTO SERENA BY FELIX HARTLEY!! AND BOTH WOMEN ARE DOWN NOW!
(Replay shows Felix Hartley sacrificing her body with a backflip over the top ropes onto Serena Bennett)
Gavin Kirkland: Felix is in a great position again! You can tell this is her moment and she’s not ready for someone to come and take it! This young lady will do anything to get ahead so if that means by ripping Serena’s head off then she will do it with no hesitation! Now Felix is back up on her feet as she rolls Serena back inside the ring. And now Felix pulls Serena back up AN–OH MY!! A HEADBUTT FROM SERENA!!! FELIX FALLS ONTO THE MAT… TRAP QUEEEEEEEENNNN!!!
CJ Hana: SERENA HAS TRAP QUEEN LOCKED IN ON FELIX HARTLEY!!! AND WE STILL HAVE ABOUT SEVEN MINUTES REMAINING IN THIS MATCH!! FELIX IS NOT MOVING ONE BIT NEAR THE ROPES AS SERENA HAS THAT MOVE IN TIGHTLY!! WILL SHE TAP AGAIN?!
Gavin Kirkland: You can hear a loud scream from Felix’s voice! She’s not going to let this one slide by her! YOU CAN DO IT, FELIX!
Serena: TAP OUT BEFORE I SNAP YOU!
Felix Hartley: N-N-NNO! NEVER! BITCH!
CJ Hana: Felix is refusing to give up another score to Serena but how much can she take?! Serena applies more pressure to the Trap Queen and Felix is screaming louder than a train! AND I THINK FELIX KNOWS WHAT SHE MUST DO! SHE FINALLY GIVES IN! FELIX TAPS OUT AGAIN! THE SCORE IS TIED!
(Time Remaining: 6:48| Bennett – 3 Hartley -3)
Gavin Kirkland: And just like that, our Grand Rampage winner proves us wrong! Serena is really something special after going down 3-0! But she’s managed to stay patience and keep that same energy flowing instead of doubting herself! That’s the definition of a true champion and she’s going to be a great one! Now it’s the time to see who wants it more! We’re almost down to five minutes with a tie score! Felix is trying to recover as Serena sits back, controlling her breath awaiting for Felix to stand back up to her feet!
CJ Hana: The two finally manage to square up in each-other’s face again! BUT LOOK! A SLAP IN THE FACE BY SERENA BENNETT! SHE’S TRYING TO SMACK THE TEETH OUT OF FELIX’S MOUTH! BUT WAIT! FELIX RESPONDS WITH A SLAP OF HER OWN!! THIS HAS BECOME TO A REAL GIRL FIGHT AND NOW THEY BOTH ARE TRADING PUNCHES!!
Gavin Kirkland: FELIX WITH A LEFT! SERENA WITH A RIGHT! THEY’RE GOING AT IT LIKE HOUNDS! BUT SERENA DUCKS UNDER FELIX’S PUNCH AND KICKS HER IN THE GROIN! AND THEN SERENA BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AND SHE HITS THE MOONLIGHT!! THE NECKBREAKER ONTO FELIX HARTLEY!!! AND THIS COULD BE ALL SHE WROTE!! WE HAVE FOUR MINUTES LEFT AND SERENA BENNETT GOES FOR THE COVER!!
CJ Hana: NO! FELIX KICKS OUT! BAH GAWD SHE KICKED OUT OF THE MOONLIGHT!! AND THIS CROWD IS IN A FRENZY! SERENA THOUGHT SHE HAD IT! IT WOULD HAVE GIVEN HER THE LEAD FOR THE FIRST TIME BUT FELIX STAYS ALIVE! SERENA NEEDS TO THINK OR SOMETHING QUICK BEFORE THE CLOCK RUNS OUT!
Gavin Kirkland: Serena lifts Felix back onto her feet and she’s going for another MOONLIGHT AS SHE BOUNCES OFF THE ROPES AGAIN BUT NO! FELIX COUNTERS IT INTO THE ASS, CLASS AND SASS!!! WHAT A RESPONSE BY FELIX HARTLEY!!
CJ Hana: NO! GAVIN! ANOTHER COUNTER BY SERENA! SHE PLANTS FELIX WITH AN ARM BAR AND NOW SHE TRAP QUEEN!! TRAP QUEEN IS LOCKED IN AGAIN!!
(Time Remaining 2:14 Bennett – 3 Hartley – 3)
Gavin Kirkland: We almost have one minute left and Hartley is about to tap ou–NO!! HARTLEY IS BITING SERENA’S ARM!! SHE’S FORCING SERENA TO LET GO OF THE SUBMISSION HOLD!! AND NOW SERENA IS BACK UP HOLDING HER ARM! FELIX RUNS TOWARD THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! SHE’S GOING FOR ANOTHER MOONSAULT!! BUT SERENA CATCHES FELIX BEFORE SHE’S ABLE TO FLY OFF!
CJ Hana: SERENA HAS FELIX BY THE THROAT! SHE’S ABOUT TO HIT THE GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE TO–NO!! FELIX WITH ANOTHER COUNTER!! AND NOW FELIX HAS SERENA IN A POSITION FOR THE ME TOO MOVEMENT!! SHE’S ABOUT HIT THE CANADIAN DESTROYER FROM THE TOP ROPE ON SERENA!! AND SHE DOES IT!! FELIX DOES IT!! GOOD LORD!! FELIX JUST BROKE SERENA IN HALF WITH THAT MOVE!! AND WE’RE DOWN TO SIXTY SECONDS IN THIS MATCH!! FELIX JUST NEEDS TO COVER SERENA!! AND SHE DOES!!
Gavin Kirkland: SERENA’S FOOT IS ON THE ROPES!!! THE REFEREE CAUGHT SERENA’S FOOT! AND SERENA’S HOPES ARE STILL ALIVE!! FELIX IS BARELY MOVING NOW AS THE CLOCK TICKS DOWN TO 30 SECONDS!! SERENA IS BACK UP AND SHE GRABS FELIX BACK TO HER FEET! HERE IT GOES! SHE RUNS OFF THE ROPES BUT WHAT A SECOND!! FELIX LEAPS UP OUT OF NOWHERE!!
CJ Hana: ASS, CLASS AND SASS!!!! IT CONNECTS!! AND FELIX HARTLEY WITH THE COVER WITH ONLY NINE SECONDS REMAINING!
(Time Remaining: 5 seconds|Hartley – 4 Bennett -3)
Gavin Kirkland: And it looks like the clock is running out for Serena!! FELIX DID IT!! FELIX HAS BEATEN SERENA BENNETT!!!
(Time Remaining: 0 seconds| Felix Hartley wins)
(Ding! Ding! Ding)
Maria Del Rey: Here’s your winner of the match… Felix Hartley!
(“Chun-Li” by Nicki Minaj plays as Felix Hartley slowly stands up to her feet with her hands raised above the unconscious Serena Bennett. She looks down at Serena then seductively kneels down to plant a kiss on her cheek then celebrates her hard earned victory)
CJ Hana: She’s done it! Felix Hartley was able to outplay Serena tonight and this should raise some eyebrows about her future. She just defeated a former Specialist Champion and World Women’s Champion candidate in one of the most competitive matches in Empire history.
Gavin Kirkland: I’ll also like to salute Serena for being able to stick in there and never giving up. Hopefully with this loss, she’s able to learn from it and carry it into Pain for Pride. She will bounce back. I’m DAMN sure of it.
(Commercial break — an ad for the final Voltage Supershow of the season: Fighting Spirit! See Daryl Kinkade vs Charlie Marr in a BARBED WIRE MASSACRE — Sunday, May 19th!)
(“I Smell A Massacre” by The Butcher Babies blasts through the speakers as Tyler Wolfe steps on top of the ramp as she hears the reception of the crowd. It seems like the crowd is cheering for the lesser of the two evils and that happens to be Tyler. Tyler is looking around the crowd as she takes a deep breath. She knows how important this opportunity is. She is more than willing to do what it takes to retain — even destroy someone who she considered a friend in Sienna Jade.)
CJ Hana: Tyler Wolfe debuted in Elite Answers Wrestling and was taken under the wing of Sienna Jade. She already had some respect for Kassidy Heart when they formed Jaded Wolfe Hearts. This was a faction that won Stable of the Year in the EAW Awards show. This was a stable that ran roughshod on Empire as they were against the authority figures, they claimed were holding them back. Tyler has had her issues with Kendra Shamez over the past couple months and blames her for some of her struggles in EAW.
Gavin Kirkland: It’s up to debate over if Tyler Wolfe has been hold back, but she was blessed with opportunities that not much people are blessed with in their first year in EAW. Tyler went from competition in the 24/7 Battle Royal at Pain for Pride to competition for the Women’s World Championship tonight! Tyler has prided herself in being the best, but if she can defeat Sienna Jade, she may be able to have something to back it up! Not many people on Empire have been able to say that they pinned Tyler Wolfe, but that could all change tonight!
(“Unfuckwithable” by Deez Nuts replaces “I Smell A Massacre” as Sienna Jade walks out of the back. She stands on top of the ramp as she embraces the crowd booing her. Sienna has the Women’s World Championship on her shoulder as she has a death glare at Tyler Wolfe in the ring. Sienna has made it clear that she doesn’t care about Tyler going into this match and she doesn’t care if she makes things personal with her.)
Gavin Kirkland: HERE IS OUR FACE OF EMPIRE! Sienna Jade won the title back at King of Elite in February. She has been able to get through challengers like Cleopatra and Raven Roberts! Her match against Raven ended in some controversy, but Sienna is hoping that she won’t have to rely on those dirty tricks to defeat Tyler Wolfe, but I don’t think Sienna will hesitate if it goes like that.
CJ Hana: Sienna Jade has made it clear that she believes that she made Tyler Wolfe — she took Tyler underneath her wing and give her all of the clout and influence that she can offer. Sienna is looking to go into this match and teach Tyler what happens when she bites the hand that feeds her.
(“Unfuckwithable” dies down as three spotlights shine down. One on the ring announcer, Maria Del Rey. One on Sienna Jade and the other on Tyler Wolfe.)
Maria Del Rey: The following match is scheduled for ONE FALL —
Crowd: ONE FALL!!
Maria Del Rey: …And, it’s for the ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! Introducing the challenger…from Sydney, Australia…she is the “Walking Weapon” … TYYYYYYYYYYYYLLLLLLEEEEEERRRRRRRRRR WOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLFFFFFEEEEEEE!!
(Tyler Wolfe doesn’t pose for the crowd, she is looking at Sienna Jade with a focused look on her face. She wants nothing more than for the match to begin.)
Maria Del Rey: …And introducing her opponent, from San Diego, California…she is the ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION … “UNFUCKWITHABLE” … SIEEEEENNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAA JAAAAADDDDDDDEEEEEEEE!
(Sienna Jade unhooks the Women’s World Championship off her waist and raises the championship high in the air! She looks at Tyler Wolfe’s way and raises the title at her. Sienna hands the title to the official, who hands it off to Maria Del Rey. She checks to see if both women are ready. Tyler and Sienna shake us as the official rings the bell! This match is underway!)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Gavin Kirkland: THE MAIN EVENT OF TERMINUS IS UNDERWAY! CHALLENGER TYLER WOLFE VERSUS THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION SIENNA JADE! THIS IS THE BLONDEST MAIN EVENT THAT WE HAVE HAD IN TERMINUS! BOTH WOMEN ARE LOOKING AT EACH OTHER WITH EYES OF INTENSITY — THAT IS WHAT I SEE WHEN I LOOK INTO THE EYES OF SIENNA! You have heard the things that Sienna has said to Tyler over the past few weeks! Tyler seemed apologetic at first, but I don’t believe for a second that she is going to let a chance to become Women’s Champion slip her by! I cannot deny the fact that there are a bunch of people in Korea, who would love to see these women rip each other to shreds! This is one of the money matches that people in EAW have been waiting a while for!
(Sienna Jade and Tyler Wolfe take in the scenery as their eyes look around the Seoul World Cup Stadium. The crowd more than anticipating for this match to begin. Each of the women looking around before looking at each other with eyes of determination and intensity. Both of these women know what is on the line. Both of these women want to leave South Korea with the Women’s World Champion. Tyler and Sienna are looking eye-to-eye with each other. Sienna delivering her best trash talking that she can. By the look on Tyler’s face, she is trying to be reasonable, but Sienna is not listening at all.)
CJ Hana: SIENNA JADE WITH A KICK TO TYLER WOLFE’S STOMACH! TYLER BENDS FORWARD WHILE SHE CLUTCHES TO HER STOMACH, BUT SIENNA FOLLOWS THAT KICK TO THE STOMACH WITH HUGE SLAP ACROSS TYLER’S FACE! TYLER STUMBLES FORWARD AS SIENNA GETS TYLER BEFORE THROWING HER SHOULDER FORCE TO THE CORNER! TYLER’S SHOULDER COLLIDES WITH THE STEEL POST! SIENNA GETS TYLER AND TURNS HER AROUND! SIENNA BEGINS TO STOMP ON TYLER’S STOMACH OVER AND OVER! TYLER TRIES TO GO FORWARD, BUT SIENNA CONNECTS WITH A SIDE HAND CHOP AS THAT GETS TYLER’S BACK AGAINST THE CORNER AGAIN! Sienna gets Tyler by her right arm and goes for an Irish whip to the corner corner, but Tyler counters the Irish whip as she manages to whip Sienna Jade to the corner! Tyler Wolfe runs towards Sienna! Tyler with a stiff flying forearm to Sienna, but Sienna manages to back out of the way! It is Sienna who connects with a stiff flying forearm of her own! Sienna gets Tyler by her arm before spring boarding off the top rope and connecting with a springboard armdrag! Tyler is clutching her right shoulder! Sienna goes right after Tyler before connecting with dropkick! The Women’s World Champion is not giving Tyler any time to breathe at all! Sienna is hitting the challenger with move after move after move! The dropkick from Sienna manages to roll Tyler underneath the ring! It seems like Tyler is trying to think of a strategy!
Gavin Kirkland: REMEMBER WHEN YOU SAID THAT SIENNA JADE WASN’T GIVING TYLER WOLFE ANYTIME TO BREATHE? WELL, SIENNA REBOUNDS HERSELF OFF THE ROPES AND LAUNCHES HERSELF THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPES! SUICIDE DIVE TO TYLER TO THE OUTSIDE!
CJ Hana: NOT EXACTLY, GAVIN! TYLER WOLFE MANAGES TO GET SIENNA JADE AND CONNECT WITH A FLAPJACK ONTO OUR ANNOUNCER’S TABLE! SIENNA GOES BACK! SHE IS HOLDING HER FACE IN PAIN! I COULD NOT IMAGINE HOW THAT FEELS! TYLER GETS SIENNA IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A “(YOU’RE) BROKEN BITCH — THE X-PLEX! SIENNA JADE’S BACK COLLIDES WITH THE TOP OF THE APRON! SIENNA IS CLUTCHING HER BACK IN PAIN! SO SOON INTO THE MATCH AND THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION SEEMS TO BE IN THE WORLD OF TROUBLE! THIS IS TYLER’S FIRST OPPORTUNITY AT THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! SHE IS GOING TO MAKE THE MOST OF IT AND WIN! Sienna is resting on the apron! Tyler meets Sienna on the top of the apron before connecting with a knee drop to Sienna’s head! Sienna wiggles like a fish in response, but Tyler gets Sienna back to a vertical base before connecting with an uppercut! Sienna goes backwards before regaining her balance, but that is short-lived as Tyler manages to drop Sienna with a superkick! Sienna falls back to the apron! Tyler gets herself inside the ring as she rolls Sienna back into the ring with her as well! Tyler goes for the cover on the Women’s Champion!
Marti Solo: …ONE!!
Gavin Kirkland: Sienna Jade kicks out at one! You could tell that Sienna is still feeling the effect of that (You’re) Broken Bitch on the apron! Tyler Wolfe has went hard since she found the opening ringside! Tyler looks like she is planning to weaken Sienna with those rapid fire knee strikes! Tyler probably has some of the most dangerous knees on this roster! She could knock you out with just one knee shot if she wanted too, but I believe she would want to defeat Sienna in her own will! Tyler gets Sienna up to her feet by her own head before getting her in position! Tyler with the Saito suplex! Sienna drops with ease! Tyler gets on top of Sienna before firing away with some stiff forearms! Tyler transitions those forearms with elbows to Sienna’s head! Tyler is not giving Sienna any time to breath as well! I feel like none of these women ware going to give the other woman a chance to get the match back to their favor! Tyler gets Sienna in position before connecting with a deadlift German suplex!

Gavin Kirkland: SHIT! NOT HER! I DON’T WANT HER HERE! TELL THAT BITCH TO LEAVE!
(Serena Bennett begins walking down the ramp. Sienna Jade places her focus on her challenger at Pain for Pride. Both women trash talk each other, but the audio fails to pick it up. Sienna raises her championship high in the air as Serena gestures for the title on her waist.)
CJ Hana: Just like I stated before, it’ll be Sienna Jade versus Serena Bennett for the Women’s World Championship at Pain for Pride! Stay tuned on the next Empire to see the fall out from Terminus! Signing off for Gavin Kirkland, I am CJ Hana and goodnight!
