Narrator:. …AND NOW ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING AND EMPIRE PRESENT: THE SECOND ANNUAL ICONIC CUP!

(The camera opens to the capacity crowd at the Dreamstyle Arena in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The fans in attendance and screaming and cheering at the top of their lungs as the official Iconic Cup theme, “Iconic” by Poppy, continues to play throughout the arena sound system, the blue and silver pyro taking over the stage.)

“You don’t have to be flawless
Put on a little polish
Run the bedroom to the office
You gotta be iconic”

(The camera cuts to the commentary desk where Gavin Kirkland and CJ Hana are wearing a matching constellation themed dress and suit combo.)

CJ Hana: WELCOME EVERYBODY TO THE SECOND ANNUAL ICONIC CUP! I’M CJ HANA, HERE WITH MY PARTNER, GAVIN KIRKLAND, AND WE’RE SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU ALL HERE WITH US TONIGHT!

Gavin Kirkland: THANKS, CJ! PUT ON YOUR MOST DRAMATIC CLOTHES, AND YOU’LL BE READY FOR ANYTHING! OR SO POPPY TELLS US! WE HAVE QUITE THE SHOW FOR YOU ALL LINED UP–THE ONE I’M MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING SIENNA JADE GOING ONE-ON-ONE AGAINST THE FRUIT OF MY LOOMS, CLEOPATRA!

CJ Hana: Way to kill the mood. Along with that, we have Raven Roberts going up against Sian Ryder in a LAST WOMAN STANDING MATCH! If the past few weeks on Empire have shown us anything, it’s that we can expect an absolute monstrous amount of blood shed in this one!

Gavin Kirkland: We’ll also get to see the former New Breed Champion’s stablemates, Chelsea Crowe and Jael of the Crowe’s Nest defend their Empire Tag Team Championships against Fatal Destiny, Karina-Ann and Celes Dumont!

CJ Hana: And speaking of New Breed–the self proclaimed New Breed Prophet will be defending his title here tonight against The Walking Weapon and former Specialists Champion TYLER WOLFE!

Gavin Kirkland: And the Specialists Champion will also be on the line tonight as Serena Bennett takes on Andrea Valentine in a LAST CHANCE MATCH! If either woman loses, they will NEVER be able to challenge the other for a shot at the belt, as long as one of them holds the title! :damn:

CJ Hana: And we can’t forget about tonight’s main event, the ICONIC WARFARE MATCH! Our four finalists will be locked within the confines of a HELL in a CELL until an Iconic Cup winner is determined!

(Camera cuts to the center of the ring, where Maria Del Rey is standing readily with a microphone in hand.)

Maria Del Rey: The following contest is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Maria Del Rey: And it is for the EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!

(“Rainmaker” by Dilon Spears blasts out of the speakers as Celes Dumont and Karina-Ann step on to the Empire stage. The crowd pops big as both women raise their fists in the air and posed before making their way down the entrance ramp.)

Maria Del Rey: Introducing first, at a combined weight of 240 pounds…the team of Karina-Ann and Celes Dumont…FAAAATAAAAALLLLLL DEEESSSSSSSSTTIIIIIIIINNNNYYYYYY!!!

CJ Hana: What a way to kick off The Iconic Cup! This match will be an interesting one. Fatal Destiny has a lot on their plate tonight–not only are they challenging The Crowe’s Nest for the coveted Empire Tag Team Championships, Karina-Ann is also a finalist in this year’s Iconic Cup! This can end up being a huge night if they were to take away the victory not only here, but later on!

Gavin Kirkland: These two girls look like rotting FLESH! The Crowe’s Nest are not going to play with them at all. Somebody dig a hole because this may be the night Crowe’s Nest buries this two!

(Final Destiny both move in unison in to the ring and nod their heads as their theme music continued to blast out of the speakers.)

Maria Del Rey: And their opponents…

(The lights go down, and the sound of “Glory and Gore” by Lorde fills the arena. Red and white strobe lights flash as the beat kicks in. As the song builds up, Chelsea Crowe emerges with a spotlight focused on her. She gives the crowd a condescending look as another spotlight shines down and out appears Jael.)

Maria Del Rey: Weighing in at a combined weight of 255 pounds…they are the team of Jael and Chelsea Crowe…and they are the EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…THE CRRRROOOOOWWWWWWWWE’S NNNNNEEEESSSSSSTTTTTTT!!!!!!

Crowe’s Nest: FUCK EMPIRE!!!

(Both members scream at the top of their lungs as the Empire fans are going crazy.)

Gavin Kirkland: A tag team championship match with no belts to show for it. What the hell are Karina and Celes even competing for tonight?

CJ Hana: Yeah, this arrogant duo auctioned their tag team titles on the last episode of Empire to some fans and look as if they haven’t gotten them back either. They clearly don’t have any respect for Fatal Destiny and look completely disinterested in having to treat them as opponents it seems. I sure hope Kendra has something to say about this next week.

(As The Crowe’s Nest makes their way down the ramp, as they both climb in the ring and shake their heads at their opponents. The referee checks both teams to see if they are ready and he motions for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Gavin Kirkland: Looks like were going to start off with Celes Dumont and Chelsea Crowe as this match up begins!

CJ Hana: Is this a smart strategy? Possibly. I think Fatal Destiny has all intentions on winning those Empire Tag Team titles here tonight even if they physically aren’t here, Gavin.

Gavin Kirkland: As both women circle each other, I have to wonder just where those lucky fans who got all of those auctioned off items from The Crowe’s nest are. Like, is that fat tub of lard still trying to strap that belt on or did he give up and use it as a weed plate?

CJ Hana: I have no idea but I do have an idea on how this match will start. Celes and Chelsea lock up in the middle of the ring as Chelsea puts Dumont in a headlock. Celes forces Chelsea backwards as Crowe bounces off the ring ropes and runs right in to a shoulder block from Celes that drops Chelsea onto her back.

Gavin Kirkland: But Crowe quickly rolls to her feet as she locks back up with Celes and puts her in another headlock. Celes tries to do the same thing she did before but is blocked as she tries to bounce Chelsea off the ropes once again. Crowe holds on tight as Celes wiggles her way out of the headlock only to get met with a forearm smash to the chin.

CJ Hana: Chelsea is controlling the beginning parts of this match as she grabs Celes arm and twists her wrist. Dumont riles in pain as Chelsea HAMMERS an elbow in to the twisted arm of Celes. Celes favors that right arm a bit as Chelsea Irish whips her off the ring ropes and catches her with a waist-lock as she slowly tortures Celes in the middle of the ring.

Gavin Kirkland: She is dictating the pace perfectly, this can only get worse if Celes and Karina-Ann don’t pick things up. Now, Chelsea squeezes the waist of Dumont tightly but Celes swings several elbows behind her back and clocks Crowe until she is free. Celes turns around and kicks Chelsea in the gut before hitting a quick SNAP SUPLEX on the tag team champion. Celes rolls to her feet as she grabs Chelsea by the arm and drags her to the corner as she pulls her towards her side of the ring.

CJ Hana: Crowe tags in Jael who lays in to Celes with some right hands before both women Irish whip Celes to the ropes AND DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!

Jael and Chelsea Crowe in unison: FUCK EMPIRE!

CJ Hana: Celes is flat on her back as the referee forces Chelsea to exit the ring! Crowe goes for the early pin fall!

ONE!!!

TW–

Gavin Kirkland: Too early for a pin, but Jael and Chelsea are making it known they want to end this as soon as possible! And I don’t blame them! They shouldn’t need to lift a finger as the champs!

CJ Hana: BUT LOOK A THIS! JAEL PICKS UP CELES BY HER HAIR AND DRAGS HER BACK TO THE CROWE’S CORNER! JAEL TAGS CHELSEA BACK IN AS CROWE’S NEST DROPS CELES ON HER BACK…JAEL GRABS HER LEGS AS CHELSEA RUNS BEHIND THEM BOTH…OH MY SHE CATAPULTS CELES RIGHT IN TO CHELSEA WHO LANDS A SPEAR!

Gavin Kirkland: THE CROWE’S ARE TRYING TO KILL CELES AS KARINA PLEADS FOR HER TO GET BACK UP! JAEL SLIDES OUT THE RING AS CHELSEA GOES FOR THE COVER!

ONE!!!

TWO!!!

THREEEEE–

CJ Hana: Fatal Destiny is still alive as Celes fights to get her shoulder off the mat! Celes is lifted to her feet again as she starts tagging Chelsea Crowe with guy shots! Chelsea bounces in the air with each blow as Celes throws an uppercut…BLOCKED!

Gavin Kirkland: Poor Celes tries to gain momentum but is stopped as soon as she gets going by Chelsea! Celes attempted an uppercut but Chelsea snatched her by the wrist and twists and turns her arm in ways arms aren’t meant to bend.

CJ Hana: She is twisting that wrist as Jael cheers her own REVERSE! CELES REVERSES THE WRIST LOCK IN TO A BELLY TO BELLY SLAM AS SHE DROPS CHELSEA ON HER BACK FLAT! CELES GOES FOR A QUICK COVER!

ONE!!!

TWO!!!

Gavin Kirkland: KNIFE EDGE CHOPS! CELES IS FIGHTING BACK AND CHOPPING CHELSEA RIGHT IN HER CHEST! OVER AND OVER AGAIN AS CHELSEA PULLS UPWARDS, STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! Chelsea throws a count punch but is blocked by–HEADBUTT! A SICKENING THUD CLOCKS CROWE AS CELES COLLIDED WITH HER! CELES SHAKES OFF THE PAIN AND IRISH WHIPS CHELSEA OFF THE ROPES!

(Celes scoops Chelsea up on to her shoulders after she rebounds from the ropes and spins her in the air as the crowd goes wild.)

CJ Hana: GREETINGS FROM JUR-NOOOO! Crowe breaks free and crawls desperately to her own side as she tags in Jael for the save. Celes shakes her head knowing how close she was to hitting her finisher and does the same thing and tags in Karina-Ann!

Gavin Kirkland: Looks like these two teams needed to catch a breather! Celes was being double teamed for the most part but fought back well!

CJ Hana: Here comes Karina-Ann looking to steal the show tonight! She has double duty with this match and the Iconic Cup Finals in the main event!

(Karina Ann charges Jael and clocks her with a clothesline that drops her on her back. Jael pops back up but is met with another clothesline as Jael hits the mat once again. As Jael tries to get her feet under her again, Karina lays her down one more time with a spinning heel kick!)

Gavin Kirkland: KARINA IS PICKING UP THE PACE FOR FATAL DESTINY! Karina begs Jael to get to her feet and ducks but grabs Jael by the wrist–ARMBREAKER!!! KARINA LEAPS IN THE AIR AND TAKES CHELSEA’S ARM WITH HER! Karina grabs Jael by the arm and moves her to the center of the ring and heads towards her feet as Jael clutches her arm. Karina stomps away at Jael before going for a submission.

CJ Hana: INDIAN DEATH-LOCK!!! INDIAN DEATH-LOCK!!! KARINA HAS JAEL ROLLING IN PAIN! JAEL IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, CROWE’S NEST LOOKS TO BE IN A BAD SHAPE! Jael screams in pain in the middle of the ring as Karina applies more pressure. Jael turns and desperately tries to fight out of the hold but–A POKE TO THE EYES! JAEL POKES KARINA RIGHT IN THE EYES AS KARINA IS FORCED TO RELEASE THE HOLD!

Gavin Kirkland: The champs are looking to retain their titles by any means necessary! Now Jael is slowly getting to her feet as Karina does the same while rubbing her eyes. Karina finally opens up and catches a stiff kick to the chest. Karina is down to one knee as Jael unloads another kick. Then another kick. Jael unloads several stiff kicks to Karina-Ann’s chest as she goes running off the ropes and charges at Karina.

CJ Hana: Angels Shall Sin, Devils Shall Pra–SHE MISSES! KARINA REVERSES THE MOVE AND SUPERKICK!!! THE SUPERKICK CONNECTS PERFECTLY AS KARINA DROPS DOWN AND HOOKS THE LEG!

ONE!!!

TWO!!!

Gavin Kirkland: NEW TAG CHAMPS!!!!

CJ Hana: The crowd thought that was it! It was almost over! But Jael managed to kick out of that kick from out of nowhere! This is why Karina is Iconic and is one of the best on Empire, moves like that can end a match against even the best but Jael is a champion by finding away to stay in this! Karina isn’t done yet though, watch as she motions to Celes that she wants to finish this now. Karina begins to stomp away at Jael as Jael inches towards the ropes! Karina Ann is on fire right now! She is laying in to Jael who–wait a moment! Hold on there! Jael has been pulled out of the ring by Chelsea Crowe! This quick barrage by Karina and Celes throws off the Crowe’s nest and it looks like our tag team champions are catching a quick breather outside of the ring.

Gavin Kirkland: The champs aren’t thrown off, they are just slowing things down to their speed. It’s a smart move. Fatal Destiny don’t have the championship experience this team has and things like this show because Karina is just standing in the middle of the ring begging Jael to get back in! Jael rolls back in after going over some strategies with her partner and she stares down Karina who begs her to bring it on. Jael starts circling the ring as Karina tries to stay opposite her. Suddenly, Chelsea Crowe reaches over the top rope and grabs Karina by the hair and smashes her head in to the nearby turnbuckle!

CJ Hana: Such a dirty move, this sneak attack by Chelsea must be what those two we just talking about!

Gavin Kirkland: Like I said, experience is in The Crowe’s Nest favor! As Karina holds her head, Jael turns and dropkicks Celes who goes flying off the apron and down to the mat. Jael then moves over to Karina and locks in a SLEEPERHOLD as she chokes Karina from the back. Jael turns around and drags Karina to her team’s corner and tags in Chelsea with her off hand. Chelsea enters the ring and proceeds to kick Karina-Ann in the gut repeatedly as the referee yells at Jael to leave as she is no longer the legal woman in the match.

CJ Hana: As Jael finally leaves, Chelsea picks up Karina Ann and drops her down on to the mat with a solid forearm strike. Chelsea begins putting the boots to Karina before dragging her back in to her corner where she tags in Jael again who also stomps away at Karina-Ann. These two are cutting Karina off from her partner! Celes is slowly climbing up to the apron again as she sees Karina getting the life stomped out of her in The Crowe’s nest side of the ring!

Gavin Kirkland: If I were a betting man, I’d bet the house on Chelsea and Jael retaining their invisible championships!

CJ Hana: The belts may be gone but the title of Empire Tag Team Champions is still on the line!

Gavin Kirkland: What’s a champion without their belt? Whoever wins will look naked without the gold around their waist! As Jael drags Karina-Ann to her feet, Karina throws several punches and backs Jael in to the middle of the ring. Jael tries to block them but Karina punches threw her defense and keeps connecting as the fans are on their feet. Karina gets Jael in the middle of the ring. Jael pokes Karina in the eyes as the referee warns Jael about dirty moves like that. Jael grabs hold of Karina as she smiles to Chelsea in the corner who is all for underhanded moves–

CJ Hana: GUILLOTINE DDT! Karina hits it out of nowhere! Jael is down, Karina crawls over to her corner! Jael gets on one knee, confused at what just happened. Chelsea points at Jael to focus as Karina stretches out her arm. YES! Karina tags in Celes Dumont who sprints in to the ring and tackles Jael who had just barely got back to her feet! Celes mounts Jael and punches her over and over as Jael tries to block the beating. Celes gets to her feet and drags Jael up with her as she wraps her arms around Jael from the back–

Gavin Kirkland: MULTIPLEX!!!!

CJ Hana: NO!!! Jael breaks the hold as she turns and kicks Celes in the gut. She is going for it…EVIL EYE…NO!!!! Celes blocks the pump handle brain buster and she spins around Jael again. She wraps her hands and locks her wrists and MULTIPLEX!!! She hits the German suplex but she still hasn’t broken the hold!! Celes rolls herself and Jael to their feet as she hits a SECOND GERMAN SUPLEX!!!

Gavin Kirkland: This is a dangerous spot! Dumont still has her hands together and Jael looks like she can’t break this grip! A THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX!!! SHES GETTING HER ON HER FEET ONCE AGAIN!!!

CJ Hana: She hits a FOURTH suplex as Jael is being dragged to her feet once again! The crowd is going wild! MULTIPLEX NUMBER FIVE!!! Dumont finally sends Jael flying as she hits a final German suplex and hops over her for a quick cover attempt!

ONE!!!

TWO!!!

CJ Hana: Kickout! Jael fights out of the pin attempt and gets her shoulder off the mat! Celes looks over to Karina as she tags in her partner who begins to put the boots to the grounded Jael. Chelsea looks on screaming for Jael to fight back as Karina-Ann grabs Jael by the ankles…SHES GOING FOR A CLOVERLEAF! NOPE! Jael kicks Karina in the gut and scurries to her corner where she tags in Chelsea who isn’t pleased at all. Chelsea rubs her nose, she wipes her feet on the apron, and she enters the ring where she walks slowly towards Karina Ann. Karina Ann is now standing face to face with Chelsea Crowe who is mocking Karina as the crowd goes crazy.

Gavin Kirkland: Chelsea isn’t impressed with Karina Ann–and hell, neither am I.

CJ Hana: She May not be tag champ yet but her and Celes have taken the fight to Crowe’s Nest so far! The Black Heart and The Siren Assassin are arguing CHELSEA THROWS A SUCKER PUNCH AS KARINA IS STUNNED! But not for long–she regains a bit of momentum, will she go for it?!

Gavin Kirkland: SHE WILL! THE SUPERKICK–AND IT’S BLOCKED! CHELSEA CATCHES THE FOOT OF KARINA-ANN!

CJ Hana: SPINNING WHEEL-KICK! KARINA REVERSES THE REVERSAL AS SHE KNOCKS CROWE DOWN! KARINA DRAGS CROWE TO THE CORNER AS SHE TAGS CELES BACK IN! THE FATAL DESTINY IRISH WHIP CHELSEA OFF THE ROPES…DOUBLE BICYCLE KICK! CROWE IS DOWN AS CELES GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

ONE!!!

TWO!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEE…

CJ Hana: JAEL SPRINTS IN AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND TO BREAK THE COVER! BOTH TEAMS ARE IN THE RING AS JAEL TAKES THE FIGHT TO KARINA! CELES HELPS HER TEAM MATE OUT AS THE GET THE UPPERHAND ON JAEL AND KNOCK HER DOWN AND ON HER BACK! CELES GRABS JAELS FEET…SHE CATAPULTS HER IN TO KARINA ANN!!!

Gavin Kirkland: EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!! KARINA CONNECTS BEAUTIFULLY AS JAEL ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!

CJ Hana: The referee tries to regain order as he forces Karina Ann back to her corner. Celes mocks Jael who crawls outside of the ring back to her corner…

Gavin Kirkland: LOOK! CHELSEA CROWE ROLLS UP CELES!!!

CJ Hana: SHE GRABS A HANDFUL OF TIGHTS! NOT THIS WAY!!!

ONE!!!

TWO!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEE….

NOOOOO!!!

CJ Hana: Celes kicks out despite Chelsea having leverage in the pin with the grabbing of the tights. Both women get to their feet as they begin trading blows in the middle of the ring. Both teams are going to do whatever it takes to win. Chelsea laid around as Karina and Celes laid out her partner but Crowe was buying her time and went for a pin attempt when the opening was there!

Gavin Kirkland: Crowe’s Nest are Empire Tag Team Champions for a reason, even if the belts aren’t on their waists, or even in this arena, they still should be respected for what they do!

CJ Hana: I don’t know about respected! They have been doing dirty tricks throughout the match and though they may not think Fatal Destiny are worthy, they sure are pulling out every trick to try and retain their championships! Now look, Celes kicks Chelsea in the gut and spins her entire body around–

Gavin Kirkland: DEVIL TRIGGER!!! THE SPINNING BACK KICK HAS CHELSEA OUT LIKE A LIGHT!

CJ Hana: COVER!!! COV-ER!!!

ONE!!!!

TWO!!!!!

THREEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: NO! Celes slides off of Chelsea as we see Jael outside of the ring reach in and pull Dumont by here foot and on to the arena floor! JAEL SAVES HER PARTNER AS SHE THROWS CELES IN TO THE BARRICADE!

CJ Hana: The ref tries to gain order once again but Crowe’s Nest keeps finding ways to avoid being disqualified!

Gavin Kirkland: Jael was just helping her partner!

CJ Hana: Jael raises her hands as if to say her bad and the ref makes her get back to her corner. Celes climbs back in the ring as she holds her spine with her left hand. She got that barricade awkwardly and who knows if anything didn’t get broken upon impact? Celes gets back in the ring as Chelsea Crowe starts to come to after that incredible Devil Trigger from moments ago. Celes and Chelsea get to their feet and begin trading strikes. Celes throws a few shoot kicks as Chelsea responds with her own. They go back in forth until Dumont gets the advantage. Dumont motions for another kick and goes for a big one–DEVIL TRIGGER AGAIN!!! ANOTHER ONE!

Gavin Kirkland: NO!!!!! CHELSEA DUCKS THE KICK THIS TIME…SHE THROWS A KICK OF HER OWN BUT CELES DUCKS THAT ONE…

CJ Hana: THE LITTLE DEATH! THE FIRST KICK WAS A TRICK! THE LITTLE DEATH CONNECTS AS CHELSEA CLEANS CELES CLOCK WITH THAT CONNECTION! Chelsea Crowe smiles as she motions towards her partner who is back on the apron. Chelsea tags her partner in and they both pick up Celes Dumont to her feet. Jael puts Celes in an octopus hold as Chelsea charged in–CHELSEA GRIN!!!

Gavin Kirkland: THE CROWE’S NEST LAND A HUGE MANEUVER! WAIT THEY ARE NOT DONE!

(The ref is begging Chelsea to leave the ring but she shrugs him off and her and Jael pick Celes back up again.)

CJ Hana: THEY ARE GOING FOR CHELSEA GRIN AGAIN!!! OCTOPUS HOLD ON CELES WHO IS OUT ON HER FEET!!! CHELSEA SPRINTS AND…CELES BREAKS OUT AND MOVES AS CHELSEA KNEES JAEL AND SENDS HER FLYING!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Celes desperately crawls to her corner as both members of Crowe’s nest are on the ground. Celes keeps crawling over and over again as she reaches desperately to her partner. Chelsea is forced out of the ring finally by the referee after kneeing Jael by accident. Chelsea sits on the apron as Jael rolls around in pain. Celes keeps crawling towards Karina-Ann who extends her hand as much as possible. Jael recovers and grabs Celes by the foot and drags her back towards the middle but Celes kicks her off. Jael dives again and lands on Dumont’s leg to stop her from reaching her partner. Jael hammers away at Celes as she mounts her and lands blow after blow. Celes is eating punches until she finally gets her guard up. She shoves Jael off and stumbles to her feet. Jael shakes her head as she snatched Celes by the hair. Jael continues to shake her head as she grips as much of Celes Dumont’s hair as possible.

CJ Hana: The Crowe’s Nest got greedy and went for a second Chelsea Grin when that first one may have been enough.

Gavin Kirkland: They were looking to murder Celes Dumont and have regained control after the kick out.

CJ Hana: Jael has Celes by the hair as she taunts the crowd and Fatal Destiny! CELES BREAKS THE GRIP WITH HER FOREARM!

CJ Hana AND Gavin Kirkland: TWISTED SISTER!!! TWISTED SISTER!!!

CJ Hana: TWISTED SISTER OUT OF NOWHERE!! A ROLLING SNAPMARE FOLLOWED BY A SICKENING KICK!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Both women drop to the mat as their respective partners plead for them to get back up. Karina keeps her hand extended as Celes looks exhausted. Jael tries to gain her composure following that brutal kick.

CJ Hana: The belts not be here but we will have a champion crowned here tonight!

Gavin Kirland: Jael is closer to her partner now as Celes looks distraught so much further away from Karina. Jael reaches her partner and tags in Chelsea who slowly gets in the ring. She stalks Celes who doesn’t see her coming. Chelsea has a sadistic look on her face as she mocks Celes trying to desperately reach Karina. Chelsea finally stops taunting and grabs Celes by the hair and helps her to her feet. Chelsea is in complete control of the situ—GREETINGS FROM JURON!!!!!

CJ Hana: MY GOD OUT OF NOWHERE!!!! CELES COLLAPSES!!! SHE SENT CHELSEA FLYING ACROSS THE RING AS SHE INCHES TOWARDS HER PARTNER. CHELSEA IS OUT BUT SHE USES HER LAST BIT OF ENERGY TO REACH JAEL WHO QUICKLY ENTERS THE RING! CELES IS TRYING…SHES REACHING…

Gavin Kirkland: COME ON JAEL STOP HER!

CJ Hana: SHE DOES IT! SHE TAGS IN KARINA-ANN AND KARINA CHARGES IN LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL! CELES COLLAPSES TO THE RING FLOOR AS SHE TRIES TO REGAIN HER SELF! CHELSEA LAYS FLAT ON THE RING APRON AS KARINA CLOTHESLINES JAEL!

Gavin Kirkland: Karina knocks Jael down on her back with a strong arm lariat. Jael rolls back to her feet and ears another clothesline from Karina. Jael slowly climbs to her feet one more time and Karina-Ann looks to take her out with another–SUPERKICK!!!

CJ Hana: ANOTHER SUPERKICK!!! KARINA DROPS JAEL FLAT ON HER BACK!!!

Gavin Kirkland: GET UP JAEL!!!

CJ Hana: KARINA FALLS OVER JAEL AND GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

ONE!!!!

TWO!!!

THREEEEE–

KICK OUT!

CJ Hana: IT WASN’T ENOUGH! KARINA IS ANGRY BUT SHE ISN’T FINISHED! We see Karina get back to her feet and scoop Jael up who is very much out of it. Chelsea grabs the top turnbuckle and pulls herself up as Celes is still outside the ring feeling the effects of that CHELSEA GRIN from earlier. Karina hoists Jael on her shoulders as Jael wiggles and tries to get free. Jael wiggles as she finally hops down and tries to run to her corner to be saved. Karina grabs her by the hair as Jael is within fingers reach of Chelsea who tries to reach over and save her partner but can’t tag in. Karina aggressively pulls Jael by the hair and hoists her back up on to her shoulders. Chelsea managed to get three fingers on to Jael’s boot as she is swung on to Karina’s shoulders and before Karina can carry her back to the center of the ring!

Karina-Ann: FUCK EMPIRE?! FUCK YOU!

Gavin Kirkland: Karina now screamsing at Jael as she carries her on her shoulders. Chelsea ducks down and waits as the referee points to her signifying that she was the legal woman now–WAS THAT A TAG?!

CJ Hana: KARINA HAS JAEL UP WITH NOWHERE TO GO BUT DOWN!!!

–FALL FROM GRACE!!!

CJ Hana: SHE HITS THE FALL FROM GRACE! KARINA HITS THE FALL FROM GRACE! JAEL IS OUT!

Gavin Kirkland: CHELSEA IS THE LEGAL WOMAN!

CJ Hana: JAEL IS OUT COLD!!! KARINA ROLLS HER ON HER BACK FOR THE PIN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!! FATAL DESTINY HAS IT!! Karina goes for the cover. She hooks the leg. She screams for the referee to make the count as she lays on top of a knocked out Jael but the referee waves her off. The crowd is ravenous as Karina keeps begging the referee to count the pin and end the match but he signals to here that Jael isn’t the legal partner as Karina lays over Jael lost at what had happened. As Karina pushes herself off Jael, she is on all fours over Jael’s body. Wait a–CUNT KICK!!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!

CJ Hana: CHELSEA HITS THE CUNT KICK!!! THE RUNNING PUNT NAILS KARINA IN THE HEAD AS KARINA COLLAPSE ON TOP OF JAEL! SHE NEARLY KICKED KARINA’S HEAD CLEAN OFF!!! Chelsea rolls Karina over off of Jael as she goes for the pin. Celes peeks inside the ring from outside as the ref begins his count.

ONE!!!

(Celes is in the ring and she is holding her head as she drags herself towards the pin.)

TWO!!!

(Celes springs from here knees and glides across the ring as the ref lowers his hand. Celes Dumont desperately goes to try and break up the pin fall.)

THREEEEEEE!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Glory and Gore” plays over the public announcement speakers as Chelsea rises to her feet over Karina who looks out of it. Crowe drags Jael up but she is out also. Celes lays just a few inches short of where Karina-Ann laid pinned in the middle of the ring. Chelsea is catching her breath as she puts Jael’s arm around her should in order to keep her on her feet.)

Maria Del Rey: HERE ARE YOUR WINNERS AND STILL YOUR EAW EMPIRE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…THE CROOOOOOWEEEEEE’S NESSSSSSTTTTTT!

Gavin Kirkland: THEY DID IT! I NEVER DOUBTED THEM! NOT FOR A SECOND!

CJ Hana: Karina and Celes gave it everything they had! Greetings from JURON, Devil Trigger, Fall from Grace…They used every move but at every turn Crowe’s Nest found a way to avoid staying pinned!

Gavin Kirkland: This was a massacre!! Karina STILL has a match later on tonight! What condition will she be in following that vicious punt to the head? Also this looks insane that they are still tag champions but do not have their belts!

(The referee stands in between Chelsea and Jael as he attempts to raise their hands but Jael drops to her knees again as she still feels the effects of that last fall from Grace from Karina.)

CJ Hana: I don’t know about Karina’s condition but nobody can still be 100% after a hellacious match like that! All four women went to war but Crowe’s Nest stands tall tonight!

Gavin Kirkland: Fatal Destiny throws everything at these two but team #FUCKEMPIRE outlasted it all by being calculated and determined. No belts but they are still Empire tag champs!

Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN…. THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

(‘Boom Clap’ by Charli XCX begins to blast across the PA system. After a moment, Layla Lockhart bursts through the guerilla curtains, a smile on her face.)

Maria Del Rey: INTRODUCING FIRST!!! FROM SALEM, OREGON… WEIGHING IN AT 113 POUNDS… SHE IS THE WARRIOR PRINCESS…. LAYLA LOCKHART!!!!

(The crowd greets Layla with a rather lukewarm reception, but nonetheless, Layla begins to make her way to the ring, slapping the fans’ hands along the way.)

Gavin Kirkland: I thought The Visual Prophet was the only man competing here tonight? Why is this little boy coming to the ring?

CJ Hana (sighing): Alright, we have been through this before, and you know and have acknowledged who Layla Lockhart is. I really don’t want this night ruined by your weird commentary. You are not Tsunami Tayo, and I will not let you ruin this night and shit all over what all these women and The Visual Prophet are going to try and achieve here at the Iconic Cup.

Gavin Kirkland: :whoa: Pull that tampon out just a little, CJ. I’m just trying to have a some fun.

(Layla slides inside the ring, poses for the fans who are looking down at their cellphones, and takes her corner.)

CJ Hana: Tough crowd tonight…

(Layla’s music fades and is soon replaced by Katy Perry’s, ‘Roar.’)

Maria Del Rey: AND HER OPPONENT….

(Constance Blevins bursts through the curtain following the loud sound of the Lioness roar. The crowd erupts at Constance’s appearance!)

Gavin Kirkland: :blessed: MINERVA

CJ Hana: :snoop:

Maria Del Rey: FROM BALTIMORE, MARYLAND… WEIGHING IN AT 120 POUNDS… SHE IS THE LIONESS CONSTANCE BLEVINS!!!!

(Constance stands on the ramp and raises her arms parallel with her index fingers pointing upward to the heavens. Constance smiles, then blows a kiss upward as well. She starts making her way to the ring, slapping hands with the fans along the way.)

CJ Hana: This match tonight between Constance and Layla co-

Gavin Kirkland (cutting CJ off): This match is finally going to bury The Pride, and thank God for that. Talk about a group that was doomed from the start. The Pride never had any business forming if you want my opinion, and I know you do because I’m a man. The revolving door of so-called leaders and members were never enough to hold that group together and honestly, The Pride is better off dead. Just reenact the ending of ‘Old Yeller’ and shoot them all dead.

CJ Hana: 😐

(Constance slips inside the ring, sheds her ring jacket, and gets set for the match. The referee asks both women if they’re ready and after they both nod, he calls for the bell.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Gavin Kirkland: Lemme pour a glass of Henny and pull up Cleopatra’s Instagram.

CJ Hana: Constance and Layla meet in the middle of the ring, and Constance offers her friend a handshake. Layla doesn’t seem interested in shaking hands, and she steps up, getting in Constance’s face. Layla is doing an awful lot of talking right now, which is funny considering she had more than a week to share her feelings with Constance, but I digress. She shoves Constance, and that does not seem to settle well with the Lioness.

Gavin Kirkland: …. Cleo posted a new workout video. I’m shook.

CJ Hana: Constance warns Layla not to shove her again, but for whatever reason Layla doesn’t take that seriously. She shoves Constance again, and slaps her across the face, and honestly The Lioness looks a little pissed. Constance takes a deep breath… AND THERE SHE GOES!!! SHE JUST SUCKER PUNCHED LAYLA LOCKHART RIGHT IN THE JAW!!! Layla crumbles to the mat and Constance starts putting the boots to her, and stomping the shit out of Layla’s midsection.

Gavin Kirkland: One of these days, CJ, my baby is going to be inside of Cleopatra midsection.

CJ Hana: Yikes. ANYWAY… Constance has taken full control of this match and has Layla up. She tosses her into the corner and begins stomping away on Layla again!!! She stomps Layla down into a sitting position and backs up, before rushing forward and slamming her knee into Layla’s face! Layla’s head violently slams into the turnbuckle and she slumps to the side! Constance jerks Layla up, and slams her with several decisive forearm shots, before running forward and planting Layla into the mat with a bulldog! This crowd is solidly behind The Lioness right now and she is absolutely on fire! Constance is not taking time to showboat either. She has a mission, and that is to win this match in the most dominant way possible! She kicks Layla over on her back and drops down, mounting her, and unleashing a series of closed-fist punches to Layla’s face and head! Constance grabs Layla by the hair now, and she starts slamming Layla’s head into the back of the mat!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Mmmm…. Head.

CJ Hana: Give me your goddamn phone and watch the fucking match.

(A little scuffle between CJ and Gavin is heard, as no doubt CJ has taken Gavin’s cellphone away from him. A loud, exasperated sigh is heard.)

Gavin Kirkland: Since I HAVE to call this match, lets be real freaking honest. Layla is currently getting her brains scrambled. Whatever power God gave to Constance for this match has seemingly lit some kind of fire under her ass. Constance picks Layla up, and throws her across the ring into the opposite corner! Constance rushes forward, and tries to decapitate Layla with a corner clothesline! Layla’s neck snaps back, and Constance follows up her attack with a side kick that catches Layla right on the chin. Constance with a roundhouse kick now, and that catches Layla right in the chest.

CJ Hana: Constance grabs Layla, pulls her forward, and slams her knee into Layla’s gut! She whips Layla around, grabs her by the waist, and throws her over with a German suplex! Constance keeps that German locked, and she takes Layla down again. CONSTANCE WITH A THIRD!!! AND A FOURTH!!!! OH MY GAWD A FIFTH!!!!! A SIXTH!!!!!! SEVEN!!!!!!! EIGHT!!!!!!!! NINE!!!!!!!!! TEN!!!!!!!!! ELEVEN!!!!!!!!!! TWELVE!!!!!!!!!!! CONSTANCE FINALLY LETS GO AND UNDERSTANDABLY LOOKS A LITTLE EXHAUSTED!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Twelve German suplexes. One for each disciple of Jesus. :wow:

CJ Hana: :wow:

Gavin Kirkland: Ole Connie is finally sitting up, and she looks over at the fallen body of her buddy. Constance throws herself over Layla and the referee drops down for the count!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRREEEE–

CJ Hana: LAYLA GETS HER SHOULDER UP!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Why though?

CJ Hana: Constance Blevins gets back to her feet and drags Layla up as well. Layla looks out of it, but she still fires off a right hand. It catches Constance in the face and that seems to further aggravate The Lioness! She fires off a right hand of her own, and Layla drops to her knees! Layla throws a punch to Constance’s stomach, and Constance replies with a kick to the face. Layla, who has miraculously recovered from multiple career ending neck injuries, still finds the wherewithal to fire off another punch to Constance’s stomach. Constance responds with an absolutely devastating kick that I think just knocked Layla’s teeth out!

Gavin Kirkland: Well she’s definitely bleeding from the mouth.

CJ Hana: Constance snatches up Layla by the hair and stiffs her with an uppercut! Layla’s head snaps back once again and Constance wraps her arms around the neck, hoists Layla up into a cradle position… AND SHE DROPS LAYLA WITH THE LIONESS TOUCH!!!! LAYLA IS DOWN!!!! BUT CONSTANCE DOESN’T GO FOR THE COVER!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: I bet she wants to make Layla submit…

CJ Hana: Sure enough!!! Constance grabs Layla and she slips one foot in front of Layla’s head, under her chin, and locks her hands behind The Warrior Princess’ head! Constance is now choking Layla by pressing her shin against Layla’s trachea!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: You could have just said she has Layla locked in the CTO.

CJ Hana: LAYLA IS TAPPING OUT!!!! LAYLA LOCKHART IS FRANTICALLY TAPPING OUT!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY SUBMISSION… CONSTANCE BLEVINS!!!!

(‘Roar’ begins to blast across the PA system, and Constance lets go of the gogoplata. She gets to her feet, looks down at Layla, and lets the referee raise her hand in victory.)

CJ Hana: What an absolute dominant display by Constance Blevins here tonight. The Lioness took some time off recently and came back, on absolute fire, and ready to prove a point! I don’t even think Layla got in any offense here tonight…

Gavin Kirkland: She had two shoves, a bitch slap, and three punches.

CJ Hana: …. Alright.

(Inside the ring, Constance takes a moment to appreciate her victory. She drops down and rolls out of the ring, not bothering to look behind her. As far as The Lioness is concerned, she’s done with the chapter of her career that included The Pride. It was time for her to be free and find her own way to the top of Elite Answers Wrestling.)

(As Constance begins to make her way up the ramp, “7 Rings” by Ariana Grande blasting through the arena. The lights dim down to darkness except the entrance, which flashes a mix of red and pink, Constance visibly thrown off guard by the change in ambiance.)

Breakfast at Tiffany’s and bottles of bubbles,
Girls with tattoos who like getting in trouble
Lashes and diamonds and ATM machines,
Buy myself all of my favourite things

Gavin Kirkland: IS SHE HERE? OH MY GOD, SHE’S FINALLY HERE.

CJ Hana: PUT THAT GODDAMN LOTION AWAY, YOU FREAK!

(Felix Hartley confidently struts out from behind the curtain, dressed in a custom made navy blue, backless Givenchy dress with a train that trailed behind her, but was cut extremely short in the front and tailored to all of her curves. Her classic nude Louboutin Highness platform shoes on show tonight, one foot in front of the other as she was already equipped with a microphone in one hand.)

My wrist, stop watchin’, my neck is flossin’
Make big deposits, my gloss is poppin’
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it

(She barely acknowledges the fans, her gaze seemingly fixated on the ring in front of her. She stopped, one finely manicured hand on her waist, her razor straight red hair tickling the tips of her fingers. Her music began to fade as she smiled, bringing the microphone up to her lips. She chortled.)

Felix Hartley: Did you really think Iconic Cup would’ve been the same had I not made an appearance?

(The crowd gives Felix a mixed reaction to her putting ‘Iconic Cup’ in air quotes. She licks at her deliciously bright red lips.)

Felix Hartley: It’s adorable that this event even got as much traction as it did to begin with, seeing as I couldn’t even name the broad on the poster… But here we are. While I may not be a bigger part of Iconic Cup, I can promise you that me standing here, right now, looking like all of this, will be the most memorable thing you see tonight anyway. You see, what these basic bitches lack is the ability to entertain. It’s silly little gimmick after silly little gimmick, every broad backstage talking shit and acting like they’d cut you in the middle of the street. I’m here to tell you that these twats ain’t shit.

(Felix smiles with a forced innocence; you can tell she’s intentionally trying to rile this crowd all the while belittling all the talent performing tonight.)

Felix Hartley: Bad bitch after bad bitch. It’s incredible how many of y’all started popping up left right and centre after I basically *created* you. I am literally Regina George, and these hoes are the chicks that wear army pants and flip-flops. Like really, let’s be real for a second – I make a *lot* of money, but not enough to pay child support for a roster full of my own children.

(This time the crowd starts booing the fiery redhead. She laughs, slowly pacing side to side on the ramp between the crowds.)

Felix Hartley: It’s a real shame I wasn’t booked tonight. But let me tell you something… Training day is over, babes. I’m not out here for the sole purpose of flaunting my custom made Givenchy gown. I’m here because if there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s stealing the show – over, and over, and over again. This company may have been a breeding ground for what you’ve thought were the toughest, *baddest*, slickest bitches in the industry all along – but you’re so, so sadly mistaken.

(Felix turns around facing the entrance, almost like she’s delivering her message to the locker room now. The expression on her face turns cold and serious.)

Felix Hartley: So you can have tonight… You can have your “Iconic Cup.” Make sure you’re living in this moment and *really* making these memories last. Take a moment to remember what life in EAW was like before I got here. Cherish it. Because I am about to close this chapter of the Empire division and start writing an altogether different book, and none of you are going to like the ending. So soak it up bitches, because after tonight, I am taking over Empire. Every. Single. Week.

(“7 Rings” begins to play once again as Felix raises her hand in the air, the other hand still placed on her hip. There’s a mixed reaction from the crowd as she starts slowly walking back up the ramp.)

Gavin Kirkland: Oh my god. Ohmigod. Take over. Take over right now. Hell, you could take me over for the rest of my LIFE.

CJ Hana: But, Gavin, what will Cleopatra think?

Gavin Kirkland: :kellycry: Tell her nothing.

(The camera cuts back to Maria Del Rey who has retaken her spot in the middle of the ring.)

Maria Del Rey: Ladies and gentlemen, this match is a Last Woman Standing match! And it’s scheduled for —

ONE FALL!

(The lights in the arena dim down as “O Father O Satan O Sun” by Behemoth begins to play and Sian Ryder emerges behind the curtains while a white spotlight follows her. Moments after, the lights die down completely but the spotlight quickly returns on Sian Ryder. She is shown kneeling on one knee with a confident look upon her face while watching the crowd roar in reaction.)

Maria Del Rey: Introducing first, from Liverpool England and weighing in at 155 POUNDS… “THE DEUS EX MACHINA” SSSSIIIIAAAANNNN RRRRRYYYYDERRRR!

CJ Hana: Oh my, ladies and gentlemen! This is sure to be an instant classic… This is like the battle of the wingspans and two amazon’s colliding. We should expect bodies being ripped apart for this match!

Gavin Kirkland: You have 5 FOOT 11 Sian Ryder against 5 FOOT 11 Raven Roberts… In a Last Woman Standing match?! This is awesome, they’re going to kill each-other! Raven Roberts is a former New Breed Champion and Sian Ryder is no slouch either. I just hope we have the paramedics nearby because this one might get ugly!

(Sian Ryder enters the ring as she pushes her hair back out of her face. She goes over to the near corner and smiles again towards the crowd, then directs her attention towards the ramp as she awaits her opponent)

(Lights cut back out as “Rise’ by League of Legends begins to play. Purple smoke spreads onto the stage as Raven Roberts walks out wearing a large pair of black wings and sleeved gloves. Raven stares and soaks in the loud reaction from the crowd then struts down in the ring.)

Maria Del Rey: And her opponent… Residing from Las Vegas, NEVADA! WEIGHING AT 147 POUNNNDSSS… SHE IS “THE BIRD OF PREY” RRRRAAAAVENNNNNNN ROBBBBBERTTTSSSSSSS!

CJ Hana: Raven wants to send a message back at Sian Ryder that she isn’t the bird to be fucked with. She looks mighty confident as well right about now.

Gavin Kirkland: You can’t count Sian out already, she is down and willing to prove that she’s the successor of Raven Roberts! Which also could mean she’s more powerful.

CJ Hana: Well she’ll have to prove it tonight. Who will be able to survive the 10 count after such gruesome torture that will happen here in New Mexico!

Gavin Kirkland: I think we— WAIT! WATCH OUT SIAN! LOOK AT RAVEN ROBERTS! SHE CHARGES AFTER SIAN RYDER WITH HER BACK TURNED TALKING TO THE REF AS SHE ENTERS THE RING! CLOTHESLINE!!! RAVEN IS USING HER SLEEVED GLOVES TO WRAP IT AROUND SIAN’S NECK!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

CJ Hana: She is choking the life out of Sian! Raven doesn’t want to waste time to end it here! If she chokes Sian out with those sleeved gloves, it could be night night for Ryder!

Gavin Kirkland: SHE CONTINUES TO HOLD PRESSURE WITH THOSE GLOVES AS SIAN DROPS DOWN ONTO ONE KNEE AND RAVEN VICIOUSLY CONTINUES TO CHOKE HER WITH HER GLOVE!

CJ Hana: SIAN IS IN TROUBLE! SHE’S LOOKING WEAK AS HER EYES ROLL TO BACK OF HER HEAD AND SHE DROPS DOWN ONTO THE MAT WHILE RAVEN SMILES FEROCIOUSLY!

Gavin Kirkland: NOW RAVEN LOOKS DOWN AT THE FALLEN SIAN RYDER THEN TOWARDS THE REFEREE AND TELLS HIM TO BEGIN THE COUNT! WILL THIS BE IT ALREADY?!

Raven Roberts: JUST START THE DAMN COUNT!

Referee: ONE!!

TWO!!

THREE!!!

FOUR!!!

FIVE!!!

Gavin Kirkland: I can’t believe it, Sian isn’t even moving… Raven really put her to sleep.

SIX!!!

SEVEN!!!

(Sian begins to move)

CJ Hana: RAVEN BREAKS THE COUNT! She grabs Sian Ryder and hits a suplex onto the mat! She’s not wasting anytime, she wants to make sure Sian is no longer moving at all! Raven grabs her up again for another sup—NO! Sian drops onto her feet as Raven flexes her body backwards! Sian CHARGES back at her with a spear! AND IT CONNECTS! Raven flies across the ring as Sian holds her neck after almost being choked to death by Raven Roberts!
Gavin Kirkland: Sian just rips through Raven with that spear! And now she’s on the attack as she motions toward Raven and grabs her into a scoop slam! You can hear the screams from the mat after that slam! And now Sian with a pleased look on her while watching Raven grab her lower abdomen.

CJ Hana: Ryder pulls Raven by her hair now then whips her into the ring ropes but Raven ducks under her big boot attempt! And now Raven with a jumping crossbody as she lands on top of Sian! Raven then lifts Sian back onto her feet and hits a spike DDT! Sian is laid on the mat while Raven stumbles back towards the top turnbuckles.

Gavin Kirkland: Now Raven is beginning to climb while Sian is standing back up! RAVEN WITH TOP ROPE MISSILE DROP KICK! NO!! SIAN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY AND BIG BOOT CONNECTS TO THE FACE OF RAVEN!

CJ Hana: Raven dropped faster than a raindrop after that big boot! And now Sian Ryder pushes the referee out of the way and makes her way towards us! It looks like she’s grabbing a steel chair! Raven is in trouble because this is completely legal in a Last Woman Standing match!
Gavin Kirkland: Raven is starting to get back up while Sian enters the ring with that steel chair, ready to knock some sense into her! AND WHAM!!!

CJ Hana: RAVEN WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE CHAIR AND THE CHAIR SLAMS INTO SIAN’S FACE! SIAN DROPS ONTO THE MAT!

Gavin Kirkland: WHAT IMPACT! The referee begins the count again!

Referee: ONE!!!

TWO!!!

THREE!!!

FOUR!!

(Sian Ryder begins to move)

FIVE!!

SIX!!

CJ Hana: Sian is back on her feet as Raven got a small rest while waiting! Raven is now in control of the steel chair! AND SHE SWINGS IT ONTO THE BACK OF SIAN RYDER!

*CRACK!!*

Gavin Kirkland: WHAT NOISE!! Raven continues to SMASH that steel chair onto Sian’s back and now she lifts it above her head and….

*CLANK!!!*

CJ Hana: RAVEN JUST CUT SIAN RYDER WIDE OPEN WITH THAT CHAIRSHOT TO THE FOREHEAD!

Gavin Kirkland: Sian Ryder is struggling to get back up as her face is shown racing in blood by the hands of Raven Roberts! I guess this shows her to never mess with The Bird of Prey ever again!

CJ Hana: Not so fast, Sian is still moving despite being a bloodied mess! But Raven is smiling and mocking her while she’s down! Raven kicks Sian back onto the mat like she was absolutely nothing!

Raven Roberts: Stay down!

Gavin Kirkland: Raven is treating Sian like she’s some type of pet while yelling at her! The referee cannot begin the count because Raven is still kicking her in the gut! Sian is desperately trying to crawl towards the ropes as Raven taunts again, raising her arms high in the sky while Sian finally reaches the turnbuckle to lift herself up!

CJ Hana: And now Raven goes at Sian again for a running knee! IT CONNECTS! Sian bounces off the turnbuckles from that knee! Now Raven looks around the crowd and throws the bloody face of Sian outside of the ring…

Gavin Kirkland: Sian is still moving slowly while Raven pulls out a KENDO STICK!!! Sian better try to move!!

CJ Hana: I’m afraid she can’t! I hope she didn’t lose a lot of blood from that chair, but Raven is looking to cause some more impact with that Kendo Stick!

Gavin Kirkland: RAVEN CHARGES WITH THAT KENDO STICK BUT SIAN WITH A RUNNING BIG BOOT TO THE FACE OF RAVEN!

CJ Hana: Raven drops onto the floor as Sian tries to recover… She looks over at the kendo stick and grabs onto it! SHE SWINGS AND WHAM! THE KENDO STICK DROPS RAVEN IN THE FACE AGAIN!

Gavin Kirkland: AND NOW REPEATEDLY! SIAN CLOBBERS RAVEN WITH KENDO STICK SHOTS BACK AND FORTH!
CJ Hana: Sian is not letting up with those shots! Raven can be heard screaming while feeling sharp pain from the impact of the kendo stick! Sian throws a right hand after she drops the stick and knocks Raven into the barricade!

Gavin Kirkland: Now Sian goes CHARGING AND SPEAR!!! THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!! BAH GAWD!! SHE JUST RIPPED RAVEN THROUGH THE BARRICADE!!! HOLY SHIT!!
CJ Hana: IMAGINE THE IMPACT THAT TOOK OUT ON BOTH COMPETITORS AS RAVEN IS LEFT MOTIONLESS!!! SIAN IS BARELY MOVING!

(Replay shows Sian Ryder tackling Raven through the barricade in front of fans)

Gavin Kirkland: And now the referee begins the count as both ladies are still floored on the ground…

Referee: ONE!!

TWO!!

THREE!!

FOUR!!! (Sian begins moving)

FIVE!!

SIX!! (Sian Ryder gets up to her feet and Raven begins moving)

SEVEN!!!

EIGHT!!

NINE!!

CJ Hana: Raven barely makes it back up in time as the referee allows the match to continue! Sian Ryder is now moving towards the ring announce table again. She’s coming back this way for whatever reason.

Gavin Kirkland: What the hell? (Sian Ryder pulls Gavin’s belt off him while he’s seated)
CJ Hana: Sian Ryder just took Gavin’s belt! And she starts whooping Raven Roberts with it!
Sian Ryder: You’ve been a very bad little bird!

Gavin Kirkland: Someone tell Sian Ryder hands off next time! The lover of my life and future mother of my kids, Cleopatra might say something about this!
CJ Hana: Only if she were interested, Gavin. But look at Sian Ryder! The look on her face is determined to put Raven away as she now wraps Gavin’s belt around her neck and begins to choke Raven!

Gavin Kirkland: Karma from earlier when Raven almost choked Sian out from behind. Raven is now gasping for air while holding her neck from that neck with my belt!

CJ Hana: Gavin, you could be someone’s hero tonight if she’s able to put Raven to sleep with that bel—BUT WAIT!! RAVEN IS FIGHTING BACK! SHE USES HER FOREARM AND SMASHES IT INTO THE GUT OF SIAN!

Gavin Kirkland: RAVEN WITH A SPIKE DDT! SHE PLANTS SIAN BACK ONTO THE FLOOR!
CJ Hana: Raven stumbles backwards after that spike DDT as grabs Sian back up and throws her back inside the ring! Raven now has the chair again! She’s ready to swing for the fences…

Gavin Kirkland: BUT SIAN RYDER DUCKS AND TACKLES THE LONG LEGS OF RAVEN, CAUSING HER TO FALL ONTO THE GROUND!

CJ Hana: Raven raises right back up thought! SHE CHARGES BUT IS MET WITH A RUNNING SHOULDER BLOCK FROM SIAN RYDER! SIAN JUST POWERS OVER RAVEN LIKE THAT!

Gavin Kirkland: I can’t believe these two ladies and still going full-force after those impacts from earlier! Sian grabs the steel chair and she plants it into the face of Raven! RAVEN DROPS ONTO THE MAT! AND SHE’S OUT COLD! I THINK SIAN MAY HAVE IT HERE!

CJ Hana: But Sian Ryder! She places the steel chair under Raven’s face as she pulls both of Raven’s arms! AND NOW SHE’S CURB STOMPING RAVEN’S FACE ONTO THE CHAIR ENDLESSLY! OH MY GOD!!

Gavin Kirkland: RAVEN IS ABOUT TO HAVE SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE AFTER THIS ONE! THE REFEREE EVEN HAS TO STOP THIS!

CJ Hana: SIAN ISN’T LETTING OFF THOUGH! RAVEN CAN DO NOTHING AS SIAN CONTINUES TO BRING THE PAIN WITH THOSE STOMPS!

Gavin Kirkland: FINALLY, THE REFEREE PUSHES SIAN OFF RAVEN!

CJ Hana: At least someone has some sense in this match! Sian could have killed Raven if she kept suffocating Raven with those stomps onto the chair. Raven isn’t even moving at all anymore… I think she’s lost at.

Gavin Kirkland: The referee is too busy trying to hold Sian back… He needs to check on Raven as she’s showing no signs of life right now!
Sian Ryder: PAY ATTENTION AND COUNT!

CJ Hana: Sian Ryder forcibly demands the referee to start the count on the lifeless Raven and he proceeds so… It looks like Sian Ryder will take this one!

Referee: ONE!!!

TWO!!!

THREE!!!

FOUR!!!

FIVE!!!

SIX!!

SEVEN!!

EIGHT!!!

Gavin Kirkland: DAMN I CAN’T BELIEVE IT! SIAN HAS JUST WON IT!!

NINE!!!

CJ Hana: NO!! RAVEN LEAPS UP IN TIME OUT OF NOWHERE! AND SIAN RYDER IS SHOCKED! THIS MATCH WILL STILL CONTINUE!

Gavin Kirkland: Sian Ryder is about to pop a blood vessel as Raven stumbles back to the ring ropes! Sian Ryder angrily charges at Raven!! BUT RAVEN USES HER SHOULDER TO LIFE SIAN INTO THE AIR AND SHE GOES FLYING BACK OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!

CJ Hana: WOW!! SIAN DROPS FACE FIRST ONTO THE ARENA FLOOR!

Gavin Kirkland: This will give Raven some time to recover! Wouldn’t be surprised if she has a concussion after her head being slammed onto that chair for so many times! Raven paces across the ring then back towards Sian on the outside.

CJ Hana: Sian slowly gets back up onto her feet as she moves closer to the ring and Raven grabs Sian by her hair—BUT WAIT! SIAN HAS A BASEBALL BAT IN HER HAND! SHE JUST PULLED IT FROM UNDER THE RING!

Gavin Kirkland: SHE KNOCKS RAVEN RIGHT IN THE FACE AS RAVEN STUMBLES BACK AGAIN! AND NOW RAVEN IS SEEING RED! RAVEN IS DROOLING WITH BLOOD AS SIAN SLIDES BACK INTO THE RING WITH THE BASEBALL BAT!

CJ Hana: Batter up! Sian is ready to swing that bat again! But Raven wisely rolls underneath the ropes, trying to escape! Raven wants no more parts of that baseball bat as Sian charges right after her!

Gavin Kirkland: Sian runs to Raven who finally looks back! AND RAVEN WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK TO SIAN, KNOCKING HER DOWN! Raven is back on offense again! She kicks Sian into the gut once again then pulls out a fire extinguisher from under the ring!

CJ Hana: BANG! RAVEN KNOCKS SIAN INTO THE FACE WITH THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER!
Gavin Kirkland: Doesn’t look like Raven’s finished as she drops the extinguisher then looks under the ring for a table! Lord have mercy, these ladies are trying to kill each-other!

CJ Hana: Raven with every inch left in her body is setting up that table on the outside while Sian is moving on the other side of the ring, away from Raven! But afterwards, Raven follows Sian around the ring but as Raven approaches, Sian quickly turns back around… AND!! WHAT THE HELL!? SIAN WITH A BAG OF THUMBTACKS!!! SHE THROWS THE THUMBTACKS OUT INTO THE FACE OF RAVEN!!

Gavin Kirkland: Raven could be completely blind from those sharp objects piercing her face! Raven is now holding her face, screaming in pain as Sian uses the ring post to lift herself back up! She walks toward the steel steps and my god! Look at the power of Sian! She lifts those steel steps in her hand and she rushes the blinded Raven and crashes those steps into her skull!! Ouch!!!

CJ Hana: You want to talk about pain! Oh my God! Raven may be dead after this one!! Sian is calling for the end of this one as she grabs Raven by the hair, pushes her back inside the ring! Now Sian lifts Raven onto her shoulders for FIREMAN’S CARRY POWERBOMB!!! THIS WILL BE IT IF SHE LANDS THIS MANEUVER!

Gavin Kirkland: NO! RAVEN IS FIGHTING BACK!! SHE’S USING HER KNEE AND SMASHING IT INTO THE FACE OF SIAN!! SIAN HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO DROP RAVEN DOWN!!!
CJ Hana: Raven now, runs then bounces off the ring ropes but Sian quickly grabs her into the sitout tombstone piledriver!!! “ALL MY LOVE!!!” CONNECTS!!! RAVEN IS LAID OUT AGAIN!! AS THE REFEREE BEINGS THE COUNT!!!

Referee: ONE!!!

TWO!!!

THREE!!!

FOUR!!!

FIVE!!!!

SIX!!!

SEVEN!!!

EIGHT!!!

NINE!!!

CJ Hana: Raven pulls herself up by the ropes just in time! Sian thought she had it again there… Raven with a bloody face looks almost out of it as Sian drops back outside of the ring! What is she doing now?! Sian pulls out a 15 ft ladder from under the ring!

Gavin Kirkland: Sian is crazy! That must be one of the tallest ladders I’ve ever seen! And now Sian pushes that ladder in the ring as Raven moves forward! Sian lifts the ladder and uses it as a weapon! Raven is knocked back down onto mat!

CJ Hana: Sian is now setting up that ladder as Raven is still showing little signs of life… Sian pulls Raven by her then bounces her head off the ladder! Then she tries to swing Raven into the ladder but Raven reverses as Sian goes crashing into the ladder instead!

Gavin Kirkland: With sweat, blood and agony written all over her face, I can’t believe Raven is still able to move after the amount of damage she’s taken from Sian!!

CJ Hana: Same can be said for Sian… These two are going at it right now. It’s just the matter of who will survive? Who wants it more!?

Gavin Kirkland: Raven throws Sian back onto the outside of the ring and now she’s coming back over here! She’s using our Spanish announce table! They better move out of the way!

CJ Hana: Raven is steady punching Sian back and forth as she slams her onto the announce table! What strength by Raven! She’s willing to prove who’s the most powerful between them as she heads back inside the ring and onto the top turnbuckle! IT’S NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR SIAN RYDER HERE!

Gavin Kirkland: It may not look good for Raven either! This looks like a very dangerous high-risk move! It could end both of their careers, CJ!

CJ Hana: Let’s just hope they got some medical insurance as it looks like Raven is ready to fly! SHE IS SPREADING HER WINGS!!!!

RAVEN’S WINGS!!!! SHE LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPES ONTO SIAN RYDER!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT SIAN MOVES OUT OF THE WAY JUST IN THE TIME LEAVING RAVEN CRASHING THROUGH THE TABLE!!! BAH GAWD!!!

CJ Hana: Raven is not moving a single inch at all… Where are the EMT’s and Paramedics now? Raven needs some attention!

(Replay shows Raven going through the announce table after “Raven’s Wings” attempt then transitions to a smiling Sian Ryder leaning near the ring post as medical attention have arrived to take care of Raven Roberts)

Gavin Kirkland: And rightfully so, this match is over due to that dare deviling move that backfired here tonight for Raven Roberts.

CJ Hana: Wait a second, Gavin… Sian is demanding for the referee to begin the count again! She doesn’t want to end the match this way. She wants this victory on her terms! The referee begins counting as the EMT’s/Paramedics logroll Raven Roberts onto the stretcher after securing her with a C-collar.

Gavin Kirkland: Sian has finally beaten our Bird of Prey!

Referee: ONE!!!

TWO!!!

THREE!!!

FOUR!!!

FIVE!!!

SIX!!!

SEVEN!!!

EIGH—

CJ Hana: WHAT THE?!

(Raven Roberts bullies her way off the stretcher, pushing the paramedics aside as she uses the stretcher to help stand up onto her feet)

Gavin Kirkland: GOOD GOD! RAVEN IS STILL ALIVE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!! I don’t know if she should continue after that hard fall, but Raven is showing some signs of life here! And I can’t believe it!

CJ Hana: Raven needs medical attention, what is wrong with her?! Sian is looking shock and even more frustrated while watching Raven keep herself alive in this match. And now Sian stomps her way back under the ring. What is she planning? What else can she possibly use to take out Raven here?

Gavin Kirkland: Uh oh!

CJ Hana: Sian Ryder pulls out a container of gasoline as she marches her way towards the table that Raven Roberts tried to use earlier in the match. And now she’s smiling while pouring that gas onto the table!

Gavin Kirkland: Raven is making her way back inside the ring while Sian Ryder finally stops pouring gas then pulls out a match! AND HERE COMES THE THICK FLAMES IN FRONT OF THIS AUDIENCE IN NEW MEXICO!

CJ Hana: Sian smiles while watching the flames flare up in the air, meanwhile Raven is still trying to recover inside the ring. Sian is now stalking Raven as she grabs that baseball bat again when she slides in the ring! SIAN CHARGES AGAIN AT THE WEAKENED RAVEN! AND SHE SWINGS THAT BAT!

Gavin Kirkland: IT MISSES! AND IT GOES BOUNCING OFF THE ROPES, BACK INTO SIAN’S FACE!! OUCH!!!

CJ Hana: I hope Sian didn’t lose a tooth after that one, I just saw something flying across the ring. Raven is now back on the advantage as she throws a right hand at Sian! BUT SIAN COMES BACK WITH A RIGHT HAND OF HER OWN!

Gavin Kirkland: They’re trading punches now! BUT NOW RAVEN IS GETTING THE BEST OF SIAN! RAVEN GOING FULL-FORCE WITH EVERYTHING SHE’S GOT LEFT! TALON!!! CLAYMORE KICK CONNECT—NO!! SIAN COUNTERS IT THEN LIFTS RAVEN INTO THE FIREMAN’S CARRY POWERBOMB POSITION AGAIN!!!!

CJ Hana: “SCHADENFREUDE” CONNECTS!!! WAIT!!! NO!! RAVEN IS ABLE TO BREAK LOOSE! SHE JUMPS ONTO THE 15 FOOT LADDER THAT’S STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING!!

Gavin Kirkland: How is Raven able to still jump?! My goodness! Now Raven is climbing up that tall ass ladder as Sian comes on the other side of the ladder and climbs up with her! These two daredevils are about to kill themselves!

CJ Hana: RAVEN REACHES THE TOP OF THE LADDER AS SIAN DOES AND THEY BOTH EXCHANGE PUNCHES BACK AND FORTH!!! RAVEN COMES WITH A RIGHT!! AS SIAN COMES WITH A LEFT!!! WHOS GOING TO WIN THIS PUNCH FEST?

Gavin Kirkland: IT’S RAVEN!! SHE HAS THE UPPERHAND!! RAVEN COMES WITH PUNCHES AS SIAN IS LEANING OFF THE LADDER!! SHE’S ABOUT TO FALL!!

CJ Hana: Sian Ryder better hold on to dear life!!! THAT LADDER IS SO TALL, IT MAY CAUSE HER TO FALL ONTO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!

Gavin Kirkland: WAIT A SECOND!!! SIAN IS COMING BACK TO LIFE!!! SHE STARTS FIGHTING BACK!!! NOW RAVEN IS TRYING TO HANG ON—WHAT?! RAVEN USES ONE OF HER LEGS AND PLACES IT ONTO SIAN’S SHOULDER!

CJ Hana: WHAT IS RAVEN DOING HERE?! SHE NOW GRABS SIAN’S ARMS AS SHE LIFTS HER OTHER LEG AND SIAN’S NECK IS CHOKING AGAINST THE TOP OF THE LADDER!!

GAVIN KIRKLAND: HELL STRANGLE!!! Raven is utilizing her long legs to choke Sian Ryder!

CJ Hana: RAVEN IS CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF SIAN WITH HER LEGS ON TOP OF THAT LADDER!! THOSE LEGS WRAPPING SIAN’S NECK AGAINST THE LADDER!!

Gavin Kirkland: I DON’T THINK RAVEN CAN HOLD ON MUCH LONGER!! SIAN’S FACE IS SHOWN IN TONS OF PAIN AS RAVEN APPLIES PRESSURE TO THE HELL STRANGLE!!!

CJ Hana: IF SIAN BREAKS HER ARMS FREE, GG RAVEN!!

Gavin Kirkland: RAVEN IS LOOKING DOWN AT THE TABLE ON THE OUTSIDE! I HOPE RAVEN ISN’T ABOUT TO DO WHAT I THINK SHE WANTS TO DO!

CJ Hana: OH MY GOD!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: RAVEN SWINGS HERSELF AROUND SO THE LADDER WOULD LEAN OVER CAUSING SIAN RYDER AND HER TO FALL STRAIGHT THROUGH THE FLAMING TABLE!!! BAH GAWD ALMIGHTY!!!

CJ Hana: RAVEN AND SIAN ARE DEAD!!! THOSE FIRES ARE BURNING THEIR BODIES AS WE FINALLY GOT SOME HELP DOWN HERE TO EXTINGUISH OUT THE BURNING FLAMES!!!

Gavin Kirkland: RAVEN AND SIAN ARE LEFT MOTIONLESS!! THE REFEREE IS EVEN IN SHOCK AS HE HAS NO CHOICE BUT START THE TEN COUNT!!!

Referee: ONE!!!

TWO!!!

THREE!!!

FOUR!!!

FIVE!!!

SIX!!! (Sian Ryder begins to move)

SEVEN!!!

EIGHT!!! (Raven Roberts begins to move)

NINE!!!!

TEN!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(Cameras show Raven Roberts pulling herself back onto her feet before the ten count as Sian Ryder is incapable of standing up on her own)

Gavin Kirkland: SHE DID IT!! RAVEN DID IT!!

Ring Announcer: Here’s your winner of the match…. RRRRAAAAAAAVENNNNN RRRROBEERRRTTTSSS!!!

(Raven appears shaky and wobbly as she falls back onto the floor and on top of Sian Ryder after being declared the victor, as “Rise” begins to play again throughout the arena. EMTs and other medical professionals rush to the ring to tend to the injuries Raven and Sian have suffered.)

(The camera cuts to the backstage area, where Amber Keys and Cleopatra are seen walking backstage triumphantly. The crowd in the arena responds with an obnoxious chorus of “boos” and jeers as The Queen’s Court settles onto their screens. Members of The Task Force are surrounding them as they walk, taking on a diamond formation.)

(Kathy Kush rushes over to do the duo with a microphone in hand, her high heels clicking as she awkwardly runs in the background to catch up to them. She pushes through a few Task Force biceps in order to get to them.)

Kathy Kush (out of breath): Amber! Cleo! Hi, first of all, I want to congratulate you two on your victory last night against The Score–

(Amber, Cleo, and The Task Force come to a sudden halt in the center of the hallway. Amber and Cleo step forward as The Task Force falls back against the wall, giving Amber and Cleo a clear view of Kathy Kush.)

Amber Keys: How dare you approach us–what in god’s name is the matter with you?! Peasant! Gentlemen, take her away–

Cleopatra: No. Don’t. It’s alright, Amber, let her ask her questions. As long as she stands about 10 feet away from us.

(Cleopatra makes a gesture with her hands as if to say “get back.” Kathy shuffles where she stands, taking a few steps backwards. She extends her arm as far as it can go to make sure that the microphone can pick up Cleopatra’s response.)

Cleopatra: Much better. Now, to be real with you, Kathy, I don’t give a damn to hear a half-assed congratulatory message from you about a victory like this one. As if this was supposed to be hard. The Score was never credible to begin with. You really thought they ever stood a chance against us? Some people may even say that we didn’t need this victory, that The 1% was strong enough, that The Queen’s Court didn’t *need* to take them on.

Amber Keys: And we didn’t. But whatever, fuck it. We’ll take the victory. As small as it was. But an ever *bigger* victory was had last night, Kathy! Tell me, do you know what it was?! Do you?! Did you see?!

(Amber Keys grows visibly excited as Kathy Kush grows nervous in her presence, hand shaking as she lowers the microphone back to her own mouth.)

Kathy Kush: I suppose that you’re referring to what happened last night during the main event–I wanted to ask about that, too, Amber. Has The 1% turned their backs on Mr. DEDEDE? Why would you do such a thing?

Amber Keys: When you say it, it sounds so…trivial. So lighthearted, almost. I don’t owe anyone an explanation for my actions last night. Certainly not *you.* What we did that night was, in truth, a call to action by The God Emperor himself. And it *had* to be *done*. No one else can withstand the pressure, the responsibility that comes with serving in a group as distinguished as The 1%–and with the chairman’s removal, without his nonsensical direction?

Amber Keys: Now that we, myself, Cleo, and Theron, stand taller on our own, there’s no stopping what we can accomplish. DEDEDE thought he could take me out of the picture completely all those years ago when he tried to end my career, abusing his influence and throwing his weight around because he didn’t know how to respond to figuring out he wasn’t man enough for me. And then they tried to punish me as if I were some child, a little girl that needed to be reprimanded for her mistakes. And look at him now. Look where turning on me has gotten him! It’s marvelous!

Kathy Kush: Cleopatra, how do you think this latest development is going to affect you heading into your Women’s World Championship match against Sienna Jade?

Cleopatra: :skip: How else would you expect it to affect me, Kathy?! Tonight, I’m more than prepared to give Sienna the battle of her life. It’s going to to be phenomenal. *Iconic*, if you will. I’m riding an absolute high right now. DEDEDE’s removal is music to my ears. I am the *real* “unfuckwitable” because no matter how old I get, I’m like a previous article of gold. My presence will never fade. So far, Sienna, it’s been a pleasure seeing how well you carry yourself. You have a certain edge about you that no one can avoid. The fans, for some reason, love you. This company adores you so much that nobody wants to be caught rooting against you.

Cleopatra: But for Cleopatra, as much as people paint me like this “legend,” they don’t want to see me winning. They refuse to see Cleopatra back on top again, no matter how many cute words they have for me. Some may call it the truth of reality, but I just call it hindrance of what’s best for business. And I’m going to correct their mistakes. Tonight, no matter what they say, no matter how much they wish and hope and pray against me, a *true* Queen will retake the throne. And I’m doing it the old fashioned way, the Queen of the Nile way.

…I’m going to take your breaths away.

Cleopatra: ▲; ​

(The Task Force retakes their protective positioning surrounding the Queen’s Court, shrouding the duo from Kathy Kush who stands helplessly as the group walks off and the camera fades back to the ring.)

(Camera opens back up to Maria Del Rey inside the ring.)

(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX hits as Andrea Valentine steps out onto the stage to thundering cheers.)

Gavin Kirkland: SHE ISNT CLEO BUT SHE WILL DO FOR NOW! ANDREA VALENTINE HAS BLESSED US WITH HER BEAUTIFUL BLONDE BOMBSHELL BODY AND WHAT A BLESSING IT IS!

(Noises can be heard from the commentary microphones)

Gavin Kirkland: What in the name of breast enlargements are you looking for?

CJ Hana: Just making sure you don’t have a bottle of lotion or something down there.

Gavin Kirkland: I would nev—

CJ Hana: Yes you would. You tried it already.

(Andrea high fives a number of fans on the way down to the ring and gives a young girl a hug before climbing up onto the ring and standing on the turnbuckle with her arms out)

(“Surfin (feat. Pharrell Williams)” by Kid Cudi hits as Serena Bennett walks out onto the stage with the Specialists title around her waist, showing off her jewelry with a big smile as the crowd gives her massive cheers.)

Gavin Kirkland: And of course we have the traitor. The woman who once wore the name of the FOX Network proudly and then spat in its face. The woman who dared mess with the great Stephon Hunte and contradict his glorious vision! The woman who—

CJ Hana: The woman who became an overnight sensation when she debuted in the Extreme Elimination Chamber, nearly capturing the title she now holds in her very first match.

(Serena slips down the ramp, high fiving fans and sliding into the ring before hopping up onto the second turnbuckle for a pose. She hops down and removes the her jewelry before also removing her Championship)

Maria Del Rey: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is a singles match, scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Maria Del Rey: And it is for the EAW Specialists Championship!!!!

Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Maria Del Rey: Introducing first, the challenger. She comes from Orlando, Florida and weighs in at 110 pounds… she is the Heart of Empire… ANNNDDDDDDRRRRREEEEAAAAAA VVVVAAAALLLLEEEENNNNTTTIIIIIIIINNNEEEEEE!!!

Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

(Andrea throws her hands up for the crowd and poses)

Maria Del Rey: And Introducing the Champion. She comes from Compton, California and weighs in at 114 pounds… She is the reigning EAW Specialists Champion… SERRREEEEEEENNNNNAAAAAAA BEEENNNNNNEEETTTTTTTTT!!!!

Crowd: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

(Serena turns and holds the Championship high in the air for all to see before handing the title to the referee who holds it to Andrea who nods her head before showing it to the camera and handing it out to the timekeepers table.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

CJ Hana: The bell sounds and both women move right in! Almost running in as they lock up! Let’s not forget this match is under last chance stipulations so whoever loses forfeits the right to challenge for the title again until the winner is no longer champion! It’s gotta be putting a lot of pressure on these women!

Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA VALENTINE WITH A HEADLOCK TAKE DOWN! GET HER! GET HER!

CJ Hana: Good to know unbiased journalism is still a thing. Andre has position and control and tries to crank back! She knows Serena is a submission specialist so she can have no wasted movement on the ground or Andrea will find herself in a world of hurt. Andrea now trying to walk her feet around the apply a little extra pressure! But Serena is pushed up to her knees! Serena pulls herself up to her feet drives forward! She shoves Andrea off and into the ropes! Andrea bounces off the ropes and Serene goes for a clothesline! BUT ANDREA DUCKED IT! Andrea continues to run bouncing off the ropes again! GOING FOR A SPEAR! BUT SERENA LEAP FROGS OVER THAT! Andrea bounces off the ropes again AND THE BIG DROPKICK FROM SERENA CONNECTS! Serena not wasting any time now as she stomps away at Valentine, causing any damage she can. Serena knows better than anyone by this point how capable Andrea is and she doesn’t want to leave any room to breathe! Andrea rolls out underneath the bottom rope to the ring apron! Veteran move now as she catches her breath on the outside and goes to regroup!

Gavin Kirkland: NO DON’T DO IT! SERENA BENNETT WITH A SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE CONNECTS AND SENDS THE BEAUTIFUL ANDREA INTO THE BARRICADE! WHY WOULD YOU HARM SUCH A GODDESS?!? Now Bennett grabs Andrea by the hair and drags her up before running her face first into the barricade! Now Bennett stomps into Andrea over and over as Andre sits against the barricade! What did Andrea do to deserve this?

CJ Hana: These two have been going at it for months now. There’s no love lost between them! BUT ANDREA JUST GRABBED THE LEG OF SERENA AND YANKED HER DOWN AS SERENAS FOREHEAD JUST CONNECTED WITH THE EDGE OF THE BARRICADE! Her head snaps back as she drops and the referee is calling for them to return to the ring! Here comes the count!

ONE!

Gavin Kirkland: Andrea drags herself up as she looks down at Serena who hasn’t moved yet! She reaches down and grabs Serena by the hair as she begins to pull her up!

TWO!

Andrea gets the foggy Serena up to a standing position before lining herself up!

THREE!

ANDREA HITS A BIG HIRRICANRANA AND SENDS SERENA HEAD AND SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS!

FOUR!

CJ Hana: Serena crashes with a bang off those steps and now Andrea grabs her by the boot to drag her away before pulling her up to her feet by her arm!

FIVE!

Andrea gets Serena up and tries to roll her into the ring!

SIX!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT SERENA REVERSES AND RUNS ANDREA FACE FIRST INTO THE RING POST!

SEVEN!

Andrea’s skull bounces off of the steel and Serena immediately grabs her and rolls her back into the ring! Serena slides in and tries for a quick cover!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOO!

CJ Hana: NO! Andrea is still going! She rolls over and— OH WOW. Andrea is busted wide open by that ring post! Blood flowing down her face!

Gavin Kirkland: Not her beautiful face! :mjcry:

CJ Hana: Serena sees it and now she’s climbing on top of Andrea! She mounts on top—

Gavin Kirkland: THIS IS NEITHER THE SITUATION NOR THE RIGHT WOMAN TO HE MOUNTING ANDREA!

CJ Hana: The right “woman”?

Gavin Kirkland: Lesbians sell. That’s why the Crowe’s Nest have so much merch. BUT SERENA NOW DRIVING PUNCHES INTO THE CUT ON ANDREAS HEAD! SHE’S TRYING TO OPEN IT UP MORE AND INCREASE THE BLOOD FLOW! SERENA NOW DROPS DOWN AND TRANSITIONS INTO A BLOOD CHOKE FROM THE SIDE! SHE TRIES TO DRAG ANDREA AWAY BUT THE HEART OF BLONDES IS ABLE TO REACH HER LONG LEGS OVER AND WRAP THEM AROUND THE BOTTOM ROPE! The referee finally ends the suffering as the break is forced!

CJ Hana: The referee backs Serena away and Andrea drags herself to her feet by the ropes! Serena tries to shove her way through and maintain dominance BUT A BIG BACK ELBOW FROM ANDREA VALENTINE! SERENA IS STUNNED! ANDRES COMES IN BEHIND AND KICKS SERENAS LEFT KNEE FROM UNDER HER! VALENTINES MASSACRE!!!!!!! THE MODIFIED HEADSCISSORS DRIVER PLANTS THE KNEELING BENNETT INTO THE MAT! ANDREA GOING NOW FOR A PIN OF HER OWN!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

T-

NOT GONNA BE ENOUGH! Serena was caught off guard by that’s sudden offense but Andrea not about to let up! Andrea jumps up and drives both knees directly into the gut of Serena! And now she tries to roll through and lock in a guillotine choke!

Gavin Kirkland: But the traitorous Serena manages to escape! But the lovely Andrea won’t give up there! She wants to be the champion again and refuses to let her chance slip away! What a queen!

CJ Hana: I thought Cleo was Queen? Ya know? Queen of the Nile?

Gavin Kirkland: GAH! SHUT UP CJ! WHAT DO YOU KNOW?!? Anyway, Andrea grabs Serena and runs her straight into the turnbuckles! Shoulder first into the steel post that Serena used against Andrea! Serena comes out of the corner clutching her shoulder… RIGHT INTO A WHEEL KICK FROM ANDREA! Andrea still trying to maintain control here! She wipes the blood from her face, getting it into her now strawberry blonde hair. Andrea lines up from the top as Serena stumbles to her feet! Serena turns around as Andre dives split legged! V-DAY!!!

CJ Hana: NOOO! SERENA SAW IT COMING AND TURNED THE SEATED SENTON INTO A POWER BOMB! Andrea is planted into the mat as Serena drops to a knee for a moment, still stunned by the kick to the skull a moment ago! Andrea writhes around in pain as she tries to roll over so she can push herself to her feet! Both women feeling the toll of this match already! Who wants it more?!? Who will walk away the champion! Both women to their feet now and SERENA WITH A BIG CHOP TO THE CHEST OF ANDREA!!! ANDREA COMES IN FOR A CLOTHESLINE! BUT SERENA DUCKS UNDERNEATH! ANDREA TURNS AROUND AS SERENA LEAPS! REEL IT IN! TILT A WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN!

Gavin Kirkland: AWFUL! JUST AWFUL! And now she’s going to pin Andreas angelic body!

ONEEEEEE!

TWOOOOOOOOOOO!

THREEEEEEEEEEE—

Gavin Kirkland: ANDREA LIVES! ANDREA LIVES! ALL THAT DAMAGE TO THE HEAD AND SHE STILL FIGHTS ON! WHAT A WOMAN! But the witch Serena now looks like she’s going to— NO!!!!! TRAP QUEEN! THE ARM TRAP TRIANGLE FINISHER! ANDREA IS IN TROUBLE! SHES TRAPPED AND ALREADY LOST SO MUCH BLOOD FROM HER HEAD! SHE CANT TAKE TOO MUCH OF THIS! RELEASE HER YOU DEMON! ANDREA IS TRYING TO WALK HER FEET AROUND! LEFT AND RIGHT! SEARCHING FOR THE ROPES SOME HOW TO ESCAPE THIS EVIL WOMANS SUBMISSION BUT SHE CANT FIND IT! SHES CENTER OF THE RING! SHE TRIES TO SCRATCH AND CLAW WITH HER FREE ARM! DRIVING WITH HER FEET! BUT SHE CANT GET ANY WHERE! SHES FADING! NO! NOT LIKE THIS! ANDREA IS FADING AWAY! THE REFEREE GOES TO CHECK ON HER!

CJ Hana: ANDREA DRIVES WITH HER FEET AGAIN AND MANAGES TO GET SERENAS SHOULDERS ON THE MAT! THE REFEREE MAKES THE COUNT! COULD THIS BE IT?!?

ONEEEEEE!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

THREEEEEEEEE—

CJ Hana: No! Serena released the hold but not without holding on just a bit longer to keep punishing Andrea! Serena pulls back as Andrea slumps to the mat! Shes lost so much blood at this point! The mat looks painted and it’s streaked all over her body! And Serena is a shark who’s smelled it. She’s not about to let up! Andrea tried to stand but Serena just stands in front of her! Andrea tries to look up but Serena with a shot to the cut on her forehead! Andrea pushes up again! But another shot from Bennett! Andrea needs to find it in herself to get to her feet! She pushes up again and yet another shot! Serena basically toying with her now! Andrea pushes up one more time— AND GRABS THE PUNCH FROM SERENA! SHE YANKS HERSELF UP AND DRIVES HER BATTERED SKULL INTO THE JAW OF THE CHAMPION! Andrea is woozy! But she’s going to continue fighting! She’s not ready to give it up!

Gavin Kirkland: THATS MY SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! Her hair may be dyed red by blood now, but she’s still blonde at heart! Serena recovers and now the two stand face to face and just start swinging! Both just exchanging shots! VALENTINE! BENNETT! VALENTINE! BENNETT! VALENTINE! BENNETT! YAY! BOOO! YAY! BOOO! YAY! BOOO!

CJ Hana: You realize the crowd is just cheering, right?

Gavin Kirkland: THE CROWD AND I DONT AGREE ON EVERYTHING! Now Bennett throws a big haymaker— BUT ANDREA BLOCKS IT! ANDREA NOW CONNECTING AT WILL! SERENA IS STUMBLING BACK! ANDREA LAYING INTO HER WITH SHOT AFTER SHOT AND SERENA LOOKS SHAKEN!

CJ Hana: Andrea knocks Serena back into the corner turnbuckles— BUT SERENA BOUNCES OFF THE TURNBUCKLES AND SHOOTS FOR THE DOUBLE LEG TAKEDOWN! OH NO BUT ANDREA BLOCKS IT AND FORCES BENNETT TO THE GROUND! ANDREA BASHES HER FOREARM ACROSS THE BACK OF SERENAS NECK AND NOW SHE WRAPS HER ARMS AROUND HER THROAT!

Gavin Kirkland: Surely shes not about to…

CJ Hana: ANDREA BRIDGES OVER! SHE LOCKS IN THE SERENITY! THATS SERENA’S OWN SIGNATURE MUTA LOCK! ANDREA WON THE SPECIALISTS TITLE THE FIRST TIME BY CHOKING SERENA OUT WITH THE CHAIN SERENA HERSELF BROUGHT TO THE EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH! NOW SHE LOOKS TO RECLAIM IT BY USING SERENA’S OWN SUBMISSION AGAINST HER!! SERENA IS SWINGING WILDLY UNDERNEATH BUT THIS IS NOT AN EASY HOLD TO ESCAPE! BENNETT IS STRUGGLING! SHE MIGHT BE FADING IN A MOMENT–wait… what’s going on?!?

(Camera pans to see Stephon Hunte walking out with a microphone and down the ramp)

Gavin Kirkland: HE’S HERE! OUR LORD AND SAVIOR! THE GREATEST LIVING MAN HAS GRACED US WITH HIS PRESENCE!

CJ Hana: Boooooo…

Stephon Hunte: Ref, Serena has passed out. Andrea has won. Ring the bell!

(The referee looks confused in the ring.)

CJ Hana: What a crock! Serena is still fighting inside the ring! The champion refuses to give up her title in the submission! But he may be right soon if Andrea keeps it on much longer!

Stephon Hunte: If you wont ring that bell, then I will!

(Stephon moves at a fast walk down the ramp and towards the timekeepers area around the ring)

Gavin Kirkland: This is brilliant!

CJ Hana: This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Stephon Hunte do something like this! Let’s not forget when he was exposed for rigging a medical stoppage for Madison Kaline at Road To Redemption!

Gavin Kirkland: You wanted some beaked brunette as champion? Please. Now let’s watch as this great man makes the correct choice.

CJ Hana: NOT SO FAST THOUGH! ANDREA VALENTINE! SHE’S RELEASED THE HOLD AND SLID OUT THE RING! SHE STANDS BETWEEN STEPHON AND THE TIMEKEEPERS AREA! THE HEART OF VALENTINE REFUSES TO WIN THIS WAY!

Gavin Kirkland: Boring.

(Andrea is yelling for Stephon to go away and let them have their match. But Stephon just yells back at her)

Stephon Hunte (off mic): Shut up, bitch! You’re taking that belt from her one way or another! If you don’t like my methods, then you can go back to being a $2 microphone girl.

**SMACK**

CJ Hana: ANDREA JUST SLAPPED THE TASTE OUT OF STEPHON’S MOUTH! She grabs him by the back of his head and rolls him into the ring! Andrea slides in as Stephon stands to get in her face but I think he just realized where he is! There’s Serena Bennett! She’s just gotten back up after Andrea releases the hold! And now he stands between these two women who’s lives he’s actively tried to mess with! AND NOW BOTH WOMEN ARE LAYING INTO STEPHON! SERENA SLAPS HIM IN THE FACE! ANDREA KNEES HIM IN THE CROTCH! SERENA JUMPS UP AND DOUBLE FOOTSTOMPS HIS BACK TO PLANT HIM INTO THE CANVAS!

Gavin Kirkland: NOOOO!!! WHAT DID HE EVER DO TO DESERVE THIS?!?

CJ Hana: Everything

Gavin Kirkland: :kellycry:

CJ Hana: BOTH COMPETITORS STOMPING INTO HIS FACE AND STEPHON IS BLEEDING BAD! OH GOD! SERENA JUST STEPPED OVER AND REMOVED A TURNBUCKLE PAD! BOTH OF THEM TOGETHER NOW JUST BASHING HIS FACE AGAINST THE EXPOSED STEEL! STEPHON’S FACE IS MUTILATED! HE DOESN’T EVEN LOOK LIKE HIMSELF ANYMORE!

Gavin Kirkland: ITS NOT FAIR! :mjcry:

CJ Hana: NOW BOTH WOMEN HEAVE HIM UP ONTO THEIR SHOULDERS! AND THEY JUST HURLED HIM TO THE FLOOR OVER THE TOP ROPE! OH GOD HE LANDED ON HIS SKULL! HES JUST THERE AND— SERENA LEAPS FROM THE APRON AND DOUBLE FOOT STOMPS HUNTE’S CROTCH! AND ANDREA DOES THE SAME! ONE AFTER THE OTHER! STEPHON HUNTE IS A BROKEN MAN! HE ISNT MOVING!

Gavin Kirkland: :kellycry: !!!!!

CJ Hana: both women now just admiring their handiwork—

Gavin Kirkland: MONSTERS! THEY’RE MONSTERS!!

CJ Hana: Both monstrously amazing women admiring their handiwork— BUT SERENA JUST GRABBED ANDREA FROM BEHIND AND THREW HER INTO THE RINGPOST! THIS MATCH IS STILL GOING ON! Andreas body bounces off the steel that has already punished her earlier in this match up and now Serena grabs her and rolls her back into the ring! Looking to take advantage of the distraction Stephon caused and end this! Serena slides in and looks to follow up! She goes to grab Andrea by the legs and— ANDREA WITH THE UPKICK!!

Gavin Kirkland: YES! MY WORLD WAS JUST TURNED UPSIDE DOWN BUT IF THE BUSTY BLONDE BEATS THE TRAITOROUS DEVIANT THEN THE WORLD MAY YET HAVE HOPE!!! Serena is stunned and drops to a knee! YES! YES! NOW SERENA IS BLEEDING TOO! THAT KICK LOOKS LIKE IT BUSTED HER LIP OPEN! HAHAHAHAHA!

CJ Hana: Serena goes to stand up… BUT ANDREA NOW CATCHES HER WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! SERENA TURNS AND FALLS INTO THE ROPES! ITS THE ONLY THING HOLDING HER UP! NOW ANDREA IS LINED UP! SERENA SHAKES HER HEAD CLEAR AND PUSHES HERSELF OFF THE ROPES! ANDREA LEAPS WITH THE REAR HEAD SCISSORS! ATOMIC BLONDE! THE REVERSE FRANKENSTEINER CRASHES SERENA ON THE BACK OF HER HEAD! ANDREA GOES FOR THE PIN! HOOKS THE LEGS DEEP!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

KICKOUT! KICKOUT AT THE LAST INSTANT BY SERENA BENNETT! THAT IS PURE INSTINCT FROM THE CHAMPION!

Gavin Kirkland: NO NO NO! BOOOOO! BOOOOOOO! SERENA AND HER 2012 LEBRON JAMES HAIRLINE CAN’T WIN THIS! Look at Andrea! She can’t believe it either! She’s holding three fingers up to the ref saying that was definitely three! She places her bloody face in her hands and gathers herself! She wipes some more blood away and you have to think shes light headed by now! She cant believe that didn’t finish it! AND SERENA SLIPS UP FROM BEHIND! ANDREA TOOK TOO LONG AND NOW SHE’S LOCKING IN A REAR NAKED CHOKE! NO NO NO!

CJ Hana: SERENA ALMOST HAS IT LOCKED IN! I DON’T THINK ANDREA CAN HANDLE EVEN A BASIC BLOOD CHOKE AFTER ALL SHE’S LOST! ANDREA HAS HER CHIN DOWN AND IS FIGHTING SERENA FROM LOCKING THE HOLD ALL THE WAY IN! SERENA LOOKS CRAZED AS SHE TRIES TO SECURE THE CHOKE! HER BLOOD DRIPPING FROM HER BUSTED LIP OVER ANDREAS SHOULDER AND DOWN VALENTINES BODY! BOTH WOMEN COVERED IN EACH OTHERS BLOOD NOW AS THIS WAR GOES ON! SERENA FIGHTING FOR THE CHOKE BUT ANDREA REFUSING TO LET IT! ANDREA TRIES TO SLIP TO THE SIDE!

Gavin Kirkland: BUT BENNETT ROLLS HER PAST AND OVER TO HER STOMACH! SERENA HAS THE BACK MOUNTED AND IS FIGHTING FOR THE CHOKE BUT ANDREA REFUSING TO GIVE IN! Serena should just give up now! She won’t break Andrea! WHAT THE HELL?!?

CJ Hana: SERENA JUST BRIDGED ALL THE WAY OVER ON HER HEAD! SHE PLANTS UP ON HER TOES AND ADJUSTS HER ARMS! SERENITY IS LOCKED IN! THE LEVERAGE FROM THE BRIDGE WAS ENOUGH TO SLIP ANDREAS CHIN! SHE’S GOT IT ON TIGHT! ANDREA IS STRUGGLING! SHE’S SCRATCHING AND CLAWING FROM INSIDE THE HOLD! SHE CAN’T ESCAPE! SHE CAN’T FIND A WAY OUT! I THINK… I THINK….

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

CJ Hana: ANDREA PASSED OUT FROM THE SERENITY! She had lost so much blood throughout this match and her body just couldn’t take it! She never gave up though. Not once!

Maria Del Rey: HERE IS YOUR WINNER BY SUBMISSION… AAAAAANNDDDD SSTTTIIILL THE EAW SPECIALISTS CHAMPION… SERENA BENNETT!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: …….

CJ Hana: Gavin, pal, you ok?

Gavin Kirkland: …….

CJ Hana: Well Stephon is dead and the blonde lost so Gavin is broken for the moment folks.

(Serena pulls herself to her feet as she is handed her Specialists Championship, holding it up to the crowd in celebration. Andrea is still out cold as medical comes down and checks here out.)

CJ Hana: What a war these two waged here! Unfortunately due to the stipulation of the match, Andrea can no longer challenge for the championship so long as Serena holds it. She held on for dear life, but the Heart of Empire will have to set her sights on a new goal.

Gavin Kirkland: ………

CJ Hana: But congratulations to Serena Bennett for an astounding performance once again as she retains her title against the former champion! She dug deep and fought with everything she had here in this one!

Gavin Kirkland: FUCK.

CJ Hana: There he is.

(Camera fades on Serena celebrating in the ring as medical helps Andrea to the back. A stretcher has arrived to the ring where medical is attempting to put a neck brace around Stephon’s neck. He is wheeled out of the arena as the crowd sings:

NA NA NA NA…

NA NA NA NA…

HEY HEY HEY…

GOOOOODBYYYYYYYYE!

(Commercial for PETA and it’s campaign against TLA for the murder of Nightmare the Crow. Featuring Ahren Fournier wearing a mink coat and a hat with an eagle feather in it.)

(‘I Smell A Massacre’ by The Butcher Babies hits the PA system. The crowd jumps to their feet, ready for this next match! The New Breed Championship is on the line, and Tyler Wolfe steps onto the stage. The crowd erupts for her.)

CJ Hana: What a week it’s been for Tyler, Gavin. This woman bared her soul to the entire world this week, and is ready to fight until she dies tonight for the right to call herself the New Breed Champion.

Gavin Kirkland: #METOO

CJ Hana: :snoop:

(Tyler takes a moment to soak in the reaction from the crowd, and begins to make her way to the ring. There is nothing but passion and determination written on Tyler’s face, and when she slips inside the ring, she takes a moment to soak in atmosphere and envision herself as a champion once again. After a minute, Tyler heads to her corner, and gets set, her eyes narrowing on the entrance ramp. Her music fades out.)

(The lights go down as a single spotlight hits the ramp. Purple smoke flows on to the stage as Tyler Wolfe is in the ring with her hands on her knees looking as ready as anyone could be. The crowd knew something was up as the smoke filled the stage to the point the entrance couldn’t be seen. Suddenly, a voice could be heard.)

🎵 PUMP UP THE BASS 🎵

(Confusion is afoot as “Rub You The Right Way” by Johnny Gill plays as fans are confused to this new song.)

🎶Pump up the bass
Pump
Pump up the bass
Pump up the bass
Pump-pump-pump
Pump-pump-pump-pump🎶

CJ Hana: What gives? This is different…

(As the funky groove plays, out comes a figure wearing a grey and black fur coat with Wolf ears over the hood. As he steps into the spotlight, it’s clear this figure is The Visual Prophet who throws the hood back and tilts his head to the sky. After a second, Veena Adams zooms out from the curtains in a brand new, platinum wheelchair encrusted with diamonds and beautiful snow white albino wolf fur.)

The Visual Prophet: HOOOWWWWWLLL AWWOOOOO!!!!!

CJ Hana: Did…Did he just howl like a wolf?!

Gavin Kirkland: He sure did!

(Tyler Wolfe stands in the ring disgusted as Viz bites his bottom lip and stares deeply at her. Viz opens his jacket as the music continues. Prophet reveals his New Breed championship as he stands in front of the Empire crowd who let him have it. Viz spreads his arms wide, gyrating his hips in a perverted manner as the music continues. Veena presses a diamond button on her wheelchair and zooms down the ramp, bringing her chair to a stop close to the announce table. Viz slowly saunters down the ramp as the music continues to thump to the disgust of the fans.)

CJ Hana: This young man has made quite the impact this year and it culminated in him winning that New Breed Championship at King of Elite. Ever since then, Tyler and Viz have been in a war for over a month with many casualties on both sides!

Gavin Kirkland: The feud between the two of them hasn’t been pretty.

(Viz stops and mocks the fans on the side of the ramp as he gyrates his hips even more to them. Prophet makes his way up the stairs and slowly enters the ring as the referee tries to restrain Tyler from attacking him from the jump. Viz rolls his eyes at Tyler and makes his way to the turnbuckle as his music hits the chorus.)

CAN YOU FEEL?
THE MAGIC IN MY HANDS WHEN I
TOUCH!!!
AND RUB YOU THE RIGHT WAY
STROKE!!!
APPLIED WITH TENDERNESS WHEN I
HOLD!!!
AND RUB YOU THE RIGHT WAY!!!

(As the chorus hits, Viz disrobes the fur coat and reveals his New Breed championship. He poses on top of the turnbuckle as golden sparks fall from the ceiling over him.)

Gavin Kirkland: IS THAT A GOLDEN SHOWER?

CJ Hana: Good gawd…

(As he finishes his pose, the sparks end. Prophet stands on top of the turnbuckle, biting his bottom lip. Viz spreads his arms wide and points to his hips as he gyrates with the New Breed Championship around his waist.)

The Visual Prophet: 🎶 ITS ALL IN THE HIPS! ITS ALL IN THE HIPS! 🎶

(Finally Viz’s music stops and the lights come back up in the arena. Maria Del Rey steps to the center of the ring, while Viz reluctantly hands over his championship.)

Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS SCHEDULED FOR…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!

Maria Del Rey: AND IT’S FOR THE ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!

(Viz licks his lips and blows Tyler a kiss. Tyler takes a deep breath and tries to calm her rage.)

Maria Del Rey: INTRODUCING FIRST… SHE IS OUR CHALLENGER! FROM SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA… WEIGHING IN AT 153 POUNDS… SHE IS THE WALKING WEAPON TYLER WOLFE!!!!

(Tyler gets a monstrous round of applause from the crowd.)

Maria Del Rey: AND HER OPPONENT….

(Those cheers for Tyler immediately turn into jeers for Viz. The Visual Prophet grins.)

Maria Del Rey: FROM DETROIT, MICHIGAN… WEIGHING IN AT 230 POUNDS… HE IS THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION… THE NEW BREED SOVEREIGN THE VISUAL PROPHET!!!!!!!

(The crowd reacts accordingly. It’s not very nice.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

CJ Hana: And the match is underway! The Visual Prophet and Tyler Wolfe now circling the ring, while Veena watches at ringside from her rather obnoxious wheelchair. Tyler now hits a kick to the leg of Viz. Tyler attempting another, but Viz is able to catch the leg, before grabbing her into a headlock! Tyler is struggling to break free, but she manages to push Viz into the ropes, before hitting a drop toe hold! Tyler now immediately putting a chinlock on Viz. Viz is quickly able to get to a knee, BUT TYLER LOCKS IN A SLEEPER HOLD!! Viz is in trouble now, but he’s still slowly able to get to his feet! Viz now with Tyler on her back, as he attempts to ram her into the turnbuckles, but Tyler manages to let go of the hold, BEFORE UNLOADING ON VIZ, AS SHE BEGINS TO START STOMPING OUT THE NEW BREED CHAMPION!!!

Gavin Kirkland: YES!!! TYLER IS STOMPING THE HEART OUT OF VIZ, AND NOW SHE BACKS UP AS VIZ MAKES HIS WAY BACK UP TO HIS FEET!! Tyler now charging towards the corner, BUT VIZ GETS OUT OF THE WAY, But Tyler, manages to stop at the turnbuckles! But Tyler, TURNS AROUND RIGHT INTO A CLOTHESLINE!!! Tyler has just been floored by the Prophet, as Viz begins to walk over to Tyler, holding his midsection after those stomps. Viz now grabbing the leg of Tyler, and, NO!! VIZ IS SETTING UP FOR THE ANKLE LOCK!!!! HE CALLS THIS THE VIZ LOCK, BUT WAIT, YES!!!!!! TYLER IS ABLE TO PULL HERSELF OUT ONTO THE APRON BEFORE HE COULD LOCK IT IN!!! Viz quickly approaches Tyler, but she hits him with a shoulder block! Tyler now making her way to the top rope, AND SHE HITS A DIVING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!! Viz rolling out onto the apron, BUT HERE COMES TYLER!! CAR CRASH SUICIDE DIVE!!! Tyler quickly gets back to her feet, and now she’s dragging Viz up too! Tyler, THROWS VIZ INTO THE RING POST!!!

OOOOONNNNEEEE!!!!

CJ Hana: The referee starting his count, BUT TYLER’S ASSAULT CONTINUES!!! TYLER THROWING VIZ INTO THOSE STEEL STEPS, AND NOW SHE’S STOMPING OUT THAT RIGHT LEG OF HIS!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOOOO!!!!

CJ Hana: Tyler continuing to attack Viz’s leg, AS SHE SLAMS THE SIDE OF IT INTO THE STEPS!!!! Tyler now rolling Viz back into the ring, BUT THERE’S VEENA!! Veena zooms over to Tyler, and it looks like she has a lot of words for her, BUT TYLER PUSHES VEENA OVER!!!! TYLER JUST PUSHED VEENA OVER!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: NO, THIS ISN’T RIGHT!!! TYLER JUST PUSHED OVER VEENA ADAMS AS SHE GETS BACK INTO THE RING, BUT THERE’S VIZ WITH A SPINEBUSTER!!!! THAT SHOVE MAY HAVE JUST COST TYLER THE MATCH, AS VIZ GOES FOR THE COVER!!!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

THR-

Gavin Kirkland: NO, TYLER’S STILL ALIVE!!!! SHE’S STILL IN THIS, AS VIZ ROLLS OVER TO LOOK AT VEENA WHO’S LAID OUT OUTSIDE THE RING!!

CJ Hana: Yes, just like she’s definitely ‘paralyzed’, Veena’s now been knocked unconscious by Tyler!

Gavin Kirkland: Do you really think Veena would lie about being knocked out? Her delicate head hit the mat, and she’s still in a neckbrace for crying out loud! Gawd, that poor woman…

CJ Hana:… Anyways, Viz pulls himself to the corner, and uses it to get to his feet, struggling due to his hurt leg. Tyler’s been caught by surprise by that Spinebuster, but she’s still reaching for those ropes to try and get back up! Viz though, WITH A KICK TO TYLER’S GUT!!! Tyler’s been dropped by Viz AND NOW HE’S JUST DROPPING FISTS, RIGHT INTO HER FACE!!! TYLER IS TRYING TO BLOCK UP, BUT VIZ, SLAMMING TYLER’S HEAD INTO THE MAT!!! Tyler has to be unconscious now as Viz limps over to her leg, AND HE STOMPS RIGHT ON HER LEFT ANKLE!!! TYLER SCREAMS OUT IN PAIN, AND VIZ ONCE AGAIN GOES FOR THE VIZ LOCK, BUT TYLER IS ONCE AGAIN NEAR THE ROPES, THIS TIME HAVING TO QUICKLY LATCH ONTO IT BEFORE HE COULD FULLY LOCK IT IN!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Viz now backing away from Tyler as she slowly tries to get to her feet, and Viz takes off charging at her, BUT TYLER PULLS THE TOP ROPE, SENDING VIZ OVER IT!!! Viz manages to land on the apron though, and he hits a strong forearm on Tyler, dropping her! Viz is now trying to go up to the top rope himself! Viz though, taking extra time to do so, once again because of that leg, AND NOW TYLER MAKES IT UP THERE WITH HIM!!! TYLER HITTING FOREARM AFTER FOREARM, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE’S TRYING TO SET UP FOR A SUPERPLEX!!! Tyler trying to pull over Viz’s arm! NO!!!!! NO!!!! HE KICKED HER ANKLE OUT FROM UNDER HER, AND TYLER JUST FELL FACE FIRST INTO THE ROPE, BEFORE DROPPING INTO THE RING!!! Viz slowly getting back into position, AS HE ATTEMPTS AN ELBOW DROP, BUT TYLER ROLLED OUT OF THE RING, AND NOW IT’S VIZ WHO CRASHES INTO THE MAT!!!

CJ Hana: This isn’t good now, as both Tyler and Viz has been laid out, but Tyler needs to get back into the ring!

OOOOOONNNNNEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!!

CJ Hana: Tyler is holding her ankle, and this is bad! If she can’t get back into this ring, Viz will retain!

TTTTTHHHHHHRRREEEEEE!!!!

FOOOOOOUUURRRRRRR!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Tyler is trying to get to her feet, but her ankle is in horrible condition after what happened!

FIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVVVVVVVEEE!!!!!

SSSSSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIXXXXXXXX!!!!

CJ Hana: Tyler, reaching for the steel steps, and it looks like she’s trying to pick herself up!

SSSSEEEEEEEVVVEENNNNN!!!!!!

EEEEIIIIIGGGGHHHTTTT!!!!

CJ Hana: AND SHE’S ABLE TO!!! Tyler now rolls back into the ring, and she uses the ropes to pull herself up, as does the New Breed Sovereign! The two once again circle the ring, slowly getting closer to one another before Viz looks to take out the leg of Tyler with a chop block, but she manages to avoid it! Viz quickly gets back to his feet and attempt a kick to the midsection, but Tyler catches his leg, AND HITS A DRAGON SCREW, BUT SHE’S NOT DONE THERE!!! TYLER KEEPS HOLD OF THE LEG, AND THERE’S A LEG SNAP BY TYLER!!! VIZ IS IN TROUBLE NOW AS TYLER BEGINS TO ATTACK HIS LEG EVEN MORE!!!! Tyler now rolling out of the ring, as she drags Viz by the leg, AND NOW SHE SLAMS IT INTO THE TURNBUCKLES!!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Tyler now rolling back into the ring, and it looks like she’s ready to end this match! Tyler drags Viz to the center of the ring, and she lifts up his leg. TYLER LOCKS IN A KNEEBAR!!! IT’S PERFECTLY LOCKED IN, AND VIZ HAS NOWHERE TO GO!!!! IS VIZ GOING TO TAP OUT!?!!? TYLER WRENCHING ON THE KNEE, BUT VIZ IS SLOWLY DRAGGING HIMSELF TO THE ROPES!!!!! HE’S SO CLOSE, BUT TYLER DOESN’T LET GO!!!

CJ Hana: VIZ GETS THE ROPES!!!! Viz got to the ropes, but Tyler keeps it locked in until the count of four! Tyler now slowly gets back up, but Viz is holding his leg near the ropes, still in pain from that kneebar! Tyler now limping over to Viz, and she drags him up! Tyler now, RIPCORD ROLLING ELBO- NO, VIZ DUCKS IT, AND HE HITS A GERMAN SUPLEX, FOLDING TYLER IN HALF!!!! Neither of them able to get to their feet now, as Viz is holding his knee in agony! Tyler on the other hand doesn’t even know where she is after getting hit with that Suplex out of nowhere! Tyler now pulling herself over to the bottom rope, meanwhile Viz is leaning in the opposite corner, still holding that knee! The two now, managing to get to their feet, before Tyler charges in at Viz, AND HITS A RUNNING EUROPEAN UPPERCUT!!! Tyler now Irish whipping Viz into the opposite corner as she once again charges in, but Viz is able to get out of the way this time, but Tyler catches him with an elbow to the jaw!

Gavin Kirkland: Viz being forced to step back as Tyler makes her way to the top rope, BUT VIZ TRIES TO PULL HER OFF, YET TYLER IS ABLE TO LAND-NO, SHE ISN’T!!! TYLER’S ANKLE BUCKLED FROM UNDER HER, AND VIZ NOW DROPPING HER WITH A DDT!!! VIZ IS GOING FOR THE COVER NOW!!!

OOOOOONNNNNEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!!

CJ Hana: TYLER GETS HER SHOULDER UP!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: It’s going to take so much more than that to put Tyler Wolfe away!

CJ Hana: We all know how resilient The Walking Weapon can be! Viz gets back to his feet and he snatches Tyler up by the hair. He’s balled up his fist and is looking to knock her out. But Tyler fights him off! She slams her head into his chest! Viz stumbles back and Tyler forces herself forward! She goes for a clothesline, but Viz ducks! Viz spins Tyler around and looks to grab her into a stunner. Tyler pushes him forward! Viz stops himself before he hits the ropes, he turns around and both of these two are just staring at one another! This rivalry between the two of them has gotten so personal, and here we are. They’ve locked eyes.

Gavin Kirkland: There is no respect. No love. Absolutely nothing but pure hate and malice for one another. Tyler shoves Viz. He shoves her back. They lock up and it’s a battle for position! We know Viz is bigger and stronger, but we also know Tyler is able to defy the odds time and time again. Viz nearly forces Tyler to her knee, but she is able to slip behind him and grab him by the waist. Tyler attempts to send Viz over with a german suplex, but her ankle buckles just a little! That allows Viz to unwrap Tyler’s arms and now it’s Viz who slips around Tyler. He locks his arms around her waist and attempts to lift her up. But Tyler fights her way back to her feet!

CJ Hana: Viz sits her back down and Tyler catches him with an elbow! She runs behind Viz, and goes again for a German. Viz isn’t about to let that happen, but Tyler is able to switch to a side headlock position! She wrenches that hold in tight, and Viz locks his arm around her side. He tries to pick Tyler up, but she drops to her knees and snaps Viz into a sitting position. Tyler releases the hold and unleashes a series of kicks to the back of The Visual Prophet. Tyler grabs Viz by the hair and pulls him up, and she looks to whip him into the turnbuckles!

Gavin Kirkland: But Viz plants his feet and looks to reverse!

CJ Hana: Even with a hurt ankle, Tyler is able to prove her toughness. She stands her ground and slams Viz in the jaw with a forearm! Viz hits her back, and with an impressive amount of force, but Tyler Wolfe does not go down! Tyler throws another forearm! Viz fires back! Tyler hits him again! And Viz does the same! Tyler Wolfe! The Visual Prophet! Forearm after forearm being thrown by these two amazing competitors! Tyler balls up her fist and slams it into Viz’s throat, and that caught the New Breed Sovereign off guard! Viz stumbles back, coughing now, and Tyler rushes the ropes, and propels herself forward! The basement dropkick takes Viz down! Tyler gets back up and uses the ropes again! She comes flying back at Viz and lands a leg drops across his throat! She hooks the leg and goes for the cover!

OOOOOONNNNNEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: VIZ KICKS OUT!!!

CJ Hana: Tyler stays on the attack and she pulls Viz up. She throws him into the corner and charges forward! Tyler goes for a flying knee, but Viz moves! Tyler hits the padding, and turns around! Viz is come at her, and he is going for the Ike Turner Special, but Tyler kicks her feet up and forces him back! Viz comes at Tyler again, but she shoves him backwards! She pushes herself out of the corner, but Viz shoves her back! Tyler slams into the turnbuckles, but she is completely unfazed. Tyler unleashes a right hand that nearly takes Viz down to the ground! Viz recovers and he comes at Tyler, unleashing a huge right hand of his own! Tyler’s head snaps back, and Viz unloads another! He hits her several more times before Tyler grabs him by the arm and reverses their positions!

Gavin Kirkland: Now it’s Tyler firing off a right hand, and it’s followed by another! Her punches are leaving their mark! Viz finally shoves Tyler to the ground, but she rolls backwards and springs back up to her feet! Viz lunges forward for a clothesline, but Tyler ducks, and takes him down with a chop block to the back of the knee! She wraps Viz up, going for a crucifix style pin, but Viz rolls through it, and now both of them return to their feet.

CJ Hana: Tyler throws her foot up, looking to catch Viz in the stomach with a boot. But Viz grabs her foot and snaps her to the ground. He goes right back for that ankle, and immediately begins to slam it into the mat. Tyler is crying out in pain now, reaching for the ropes, and trying to drag herself forward. Viz is relentless but we all know Tyler would rather die than ever tap out.

Gavin Kirkland: Tyler is stretching her arms as far as she can, trying to grab a hold of the ropes. Viz jerks her back and lands them in the center of the ring! Tyler is doing everything she can to try and turn her body over right now! It’s clear that Viz isn’t going to let her make it to the ropes, and she’s got to find some other way to break this hold! The sheer desperation on Tyler’s face is evident right now!

CJ Hana: Tyler digs her hands into the mat and starts trying to lift herself up! Tyler is one of the most powerful competitors in EAW, and she will do whatever she can to keep herself alive in this match! Tyler with her free foot… kicks back at Viz!!! She catches him in the knee and he has to let go! Tyler rolls out of the way as Viz stumbles back, and she pulls herself out of the ring!

Gavin Kirkland: Viz gets out of the ring and stalks Tyler, taunting her as she holds her ankle. Tyler is grabbing the ring skirt and she’s trying to pull herself up. Viz takes a mocking step towards her, pretending to hobble around, and all this is doing is just fueling Tyler’s rage. She yanks on the ring skirt and finally returns to a vertical base, and she throws up her middle finger!!!

CJ Hana: Viz pretends to be hurt, and Tyler uses all of her rage to spring forward! She tackles The Visual Prophet to the ground and now they’re beating the shit out of each other! Viz and Tyler are rolling around, fists flying, and neither of them are holding anything back! Tyler finally gains control of the fight and she begins beating Viz in the face! Over and over she slams her fist down, looking to do as much damage as she possibly can! Viz FINALLY fends her off and throws her to the side, but Tyler is back up and and she charges towards Viz!! She plants her boot right into his face, and Viz falls back! Tyler grabs him up and throws him into the steel ring steps, and wisely slides into the ring to break up the count!

Gavin Kirkland: Tyler is back down on the floor now and she is stomping away at the Visual Prophet! Tyler picks him up and slams his face off the ring steps. She does it again and continues doing so until the referee screams at her to stop, and she always gives him the finger! Tyler grabs Viz by the hair and slams his face into the hardest part of the ring, and she rolls him into the ring! Tyler grabs the ropes and hoists herself up, and climbs back inside. The Visual Prophet is crawling towards the opposite side of the ring, but Tyler grabs him by the ankle and jerks him back to the center!

CJ Hana: Tyler grabs Viz by the ankle and turns the tables on him! She’s got him locked in his own finisher and The Visual Prophet is losing his mind! He is desperately trying to find a way to reverse the hold but Tyler drops to the mat and wraps her legs up in Viz’s!!! The ankle lock is nearly unbreakable when you do this, Gavin, and Viz can see his New Breed Championship slipping away. He has locked his hands together in front of him to keep himself from tapping out!!!

Gavin Kirkland: Look at Viz’s face though!!! A few more seconds of this torture and he might not have a choice!!! Tyler promised to hurt the champion tonight and take his belt, and she’s about to make good on that promise!!!

CJ Hana: The referee is asking Viz if he wants to quit and somehow, someway Viz is still refusing to quit! Tyler is holding on to this move with every fibre of her being!!!

Gavin Kirkland: OHMYGOD! LOOK!!!!

CJ Hana: What the f-

Gavin Kirkland: DEAR GOD IT’S A MIRACLE!!! IT’S A MIRACLE! VEENA ADAMS IS AWAKE AFTER TYLER KNOCKED HER UNCONSCIOUS EARLIER AND SHE IS SITTING UP! OH MY GOD… WHAT’S HAPPENING?! SHE’S GETTING TO HER FEET! OH MY GOD VEENA ADAMS IS ON HER FEET!!!

CJ Hana: I KNEW SHE WASN’T PARALYZED!!!! THAT WOMAN LIES!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! THIS IS AN ACTUAL MIRACLE! LOOK AT VEENA’S FACE!!! SHE LOOKS JUST AS SHOCKED ABOUT HER NEW FOUND ABILITY TO WALK AS WE ARE!!!!

CJ Hana: VEENA ADAMS “MIRACULOUSLY” JUMPS ONTO THE APRON OF THE RING!!!!

Veena Adams (Off Mic): HEY CUM BUCKET!!!! LOOK AT ME!!!!

Gavin Kirkland: THE SOUND OF VEENA’S VOICE MAKES TYLER FREEZE!!! SHE LETS GO OF THE VISUAL PROPHET AND SHE SLOWLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET!!!!

CJ Hana: :lupe:

Gavin Kirkland: :lupe:

Tyler Wolfe (Off Mic): EAT. SHIT. AND. DIE.

CJ Hana: TYLER LUNGES FOR VEENA AND GRABS HER BY THE HAIR!!! VEENA TRIES TO FIGHT HER OFF BUT TYLER DRAGS HER INTO THE RING!!!!!

Tyler Wolfe (Off Mic): You’re the fucking reason women aren’t taken seriously in this sport! Every fucking day we have to fight our asses off to prove that we are so much more than people like you say. You are a fucking disgrace and I swear with every fibre of my being, I will spend the rest of my days here in EAW making you fu-

TTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

CJ Hana: THE REFEREE HAS CALLED FOR THE BELL BUT LOOK! TYLER’S FOOT IS ON THE ROPES!!! REF!!! HER FOOT IS ON THE ROPES!!!!

(The Visual Prophet has gotten to his feet and has the referee’s attention. Veena spies Tyler’s foot on the ropes and she quickly runs over, knocking it off before the referee can see it.)

Maria Del Rey: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND STILL EAW NEW BREED CHAMPION…. THE VISUAL PROPHET!!!!!!!

(Viz’s music begins to blast throughout the building and a chorus of jeers rain down on him and Veena. From the back, Viz’s faithful assistant Nina comes running to the ring and together, the God awful Voltage trio start to celebrate.)

CJ Hana: This is sickening. Viz and Veena stole this win from Tyler Wolfe, and I’m not happy about that at all. This title meant the world to Tyler, and I know how badly she wanted it.

Gavin Kirkland: Can we take a minute to just appreciate the fact we watched a miracle unfold tonight? We got to witness a paralyzed woman regain her ability to walk again.

CJ Hana: Veena Adams was never paralyzed to begin with, the fuck you mean?! All I know is that The Visual Prophet better count his blessings. He’s a marked man here in EAW, with Myles AND SOSA Henderson both waiting for him. And Heaven help him if he ever comes back to Empire. I know damn well there is a locker room full of women right now ready to beat his ass and take that championship.

(Commercial break featuring an advertisement for the next EAW FPV and a Voltage exclusive event, TEMPEST! Sunday, March 23 in Louisville, Kentucky!)

(“Mona Lisa” — Lil Wayne featuring Kendrick Lamar plays through the speakers. Cleopatra steps on top of the ramp. The crowd is giving her a mixed ovation. There are some fans in the crowd that respect and are aware of the legend Cleopatra is. Cleopatra looks around the crowd in the arena as she doesn’t pay attention to them. She has a focused look on her face as she is fully prepared for the battle she is going to put herself through, but anything for the Women’s World Championship, right?)

CJ Hana: The last time that Cleopatra was on top of the women’s division was in 2013. Cleopatra had achieved a milestone that no other woman had achieved as she became the longest reigning Vixens World Champion in EAW history! She was one of the few women around that time period that could wrestle the men and look fantastic doing so! Over the years, it seemed like Cleopatra had faded away from the woman we once knew her as! But, it looks like she may be back!

Gavin Kirkland: SHE NEVER LEFT US, CJ! Cleopatra just had a little setbacks over the years, but it never took away with how she left her mark on women’s wrestling! She is a true pioneer! She is someone, who paved the way for many of the women on the back! She was a woman, who brought the best out of many women throughout her career. From Cameron Ella Ava to Kassidy Heart, Cleopatra has managed to bring the best out of opponents each time she steps inside the ring!

(With Cleopatra already in the ring and stretching, she waits for Sienna Jade as “Unfuckwithable” — Deez Nuts replaces “Mona Lisa”. The crowd erupts in massive boos as Sienna Jade walks out with the Women’s World Championship around her waist. The championship is shining underneath the spotlight as Sienna has a serious and determined look on her face.)

Gavin Kirkland: Here comes the Women’s World Champion! Sienna Jade does not have an easy challenger for a first defense. Any notion of a “champions advantage” should not apply when you have Cleopatra as an opponent! Sienna is facing one of the best on Empire! Sienna will be stepping inside the ring with one of the members of the metaphorical women’s GOAT circle! Cleopatra is no slouch in the ring and Sienna is going to need to understand that!

CJ Hana: In a way, Sienna Jade seemed like she wasn’t taking Cleopatra seriously as a competitor, but with their back-and-forth this week, Sienna should be on her toes about what Cleopatra is capable of! However, Cleopatra cannot take Sienna lightly as well! Sienna is cunning and an opportunist who will use anything to her advantage! This match could be anyone’s for the taking!

(With Sienna Jade and Cleopatra are opposite sides of the rings, Maria Del Rey steps into the middle. A spotlight is focused on her, Sienna and Cleopatra as the women wait for their introductions.)

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!!

(Crowd cheers are heard throughout the arena.)

Maria Del Rey: Introducing first, the challenger, representing The Queen’s Court and One Percent, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, she is the “Queen of the Nile”, CLLLLEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOPAAAAAATTTTRRRRAAAAAAAAAA!!

(The crowd gives a mixed reaction as Cleopatra poses for the crowd as she gestures for the title on her waist before looking and pointing at Sienna Jade before making it back to her corner. Sienna Jade has the Women’s World Championship on her shoulder as she is waiting for her introduction now.)

Maria Del Rey: AND, introducing her opponent, representing Jaded Hearts, from San Diego, California, she is the CURRENT ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION, “Unfuckwithable”, SIEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAA JAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDDDDDEEEEEEEE!!

(Sienna Jade raises the Women’s World Championship high in the air. The crowd roars in disapproval, but Sienna holds the title as proudly as she could! She doesn’t care about what anyone thinks of her. She has nothing to prove to them. Sienna gives the title to the official of the match, Marti Solo, who raises the title up, so it gives fans the idea of what these two women will be fighting for. Marti shows the title to Cleopatra, who nods before handing it off to the timekeeper. Marti rings for the bell!)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Gavin Kirkland: The Women’s World Championship bout is under way, CJ! The love of my life, the mother of my children, the woman who has made this awful job more tolerable, Cleopatra faces the woman, who could be something for FOX. She just needs to go blonde to make all of that happen, Sienna Jade! Sienna Jade won the title back at King of Elite by defeating Madison Kaline and Astraea Jordan! She managed to do something not much people expected her to do! Ever since losing the Freeweight Championship to that dyke at Pain for Pride Festival, Sienna lost a lot of steam that she had when REVOLT! Pro Combat and Elite Answers Wrestling merge, but it seems like Sienna has gained a lot of that steam back and she’s planning to make the most out of this reign!

(Sienna Jade and Cleopatra meet in the middle of the ring. The both of these women are trash talking to each other. Sienna’s approach at trash talking seems a little catty as Cleopatra tries to keep a calm composure as she trash talks to Sienna.)

CJ Hana: SIENNA JADE CONNECTS WITH A HUGE SLAP TO CLEOPATRA’S FACE! CLEOPATRA STUMBLES BACK AS SHE TOUCHES HER LIP! I THINK SHE IS CHECKING FOR BLOOD ON HER LIP, BUT EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE ALRIGHT! SHE TURNS BACK TO SIENNA, WITH A LOOK OF DEATH ON HER FACE! I THINK ANGERING CLEOPATRA THIS EARLY ONTO THE MATCH MAY EITHER BE THE DUMBEST MOVE THAT SIENNA COULD MAKE OR THE SMARTEST! CLEOPATRA TAKES DOWN SIENNA WITH A SPEAR AS SHE BEGINS TO PUNCH THE LIVING HELL OUT OF THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION! SIENNA IS SCREAMING AS SHE IS TRYING TO BLOCK EACH PUNCH, BUT CLEOPATRA SEEMS SO RABID AT THE MOMENT BEFORE GETTING HERSELF UP AND SIENNA WITH A HANDFUL OF HER HAIR! Sienna is trying to rip her hair away from Cleopatra’s grasp, but Cleopatra runs and smacks Sienna against the turnbuckle! Sienna goes backwards, but Cleopatra shoulder thrusts Sienna onto the corner again! Sienna turns herself around as Cleopatra continues to shoulder thrusts Sienna! Cleopatra then gets her foot and presses it against Sienna’s throat before extending it! It seems like the official is going to step in!

Marti Solo: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! THAT’S ENOUGH, CLEO!

Gavin Kirkland: My sweet Cleopatra gets her foot off Sienna Jade’s throat! I love a woman, who follows the rules! Cleopatra takes a few steps back before running and connecting with a running uppercut on Sienna! Sienna jumps in response to that as she goes right back down! Sienna finds herself in a seated position at the corner before Cleopatra begins to stomp on Sienna! SIENNA IS BEING PUMMELED BY THOSE STOMPS! CLEOPATRA IS GOING A LITTLE HAYWIRE WITH THOSE STOMPS, BUT IT DOES NOT CONCERN ME WHATSOEVER! CLEOPATRA HAS ENOUGH RESTRAINT TO STOP DOING THAT AS SHE BACKS HERSELF A WAY! SHE IS STALKING CLEOPATRA AS SHE SLOWLY MAKES HER WAY BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE! CLEOPATRA RUNS TOWARD SIENNA AND CONNECTS WITH A CLOTHESLINE THAT SENDS SIENNA COLLIDING WITH THE CORNER! Sienna manages to sit down on the middle part of the corner, but Cleopatra grabs Sienna by her hair again before throwing her across the ring! Sienna lands awkwardly in a seated position! Cleopatra rebounds from the ropes and connects with a low dropkick to Sienna’s back! Sienna falls to her side as Cleopatra goes for the first cover in this match!

Marti Solo: ONE!

CJ Hana: The Women’s World Champion kicks out quickly! However, Cleopatra gets back to her feet right away! She gets a good hold of Sienna Jade’s right arm before getting her back to a vertical base! Cleopatra delivers an Irish whip as Sienna goes flying towards the ropes! Sienna rebounds from the ropes and towards Cleopatra! Sienna manages to get herself in position as it looks like she is going for a headscissors takedown as she manages to do just that as Cleopatra goes flying away from Sienna Jade! Sienna sees her opportunity as she rebounds from the ropes again to connect with a low dropkick to the side of Cleopatra’s head! Cleopatra falls to her back as Sienna Jade gets the “Queen of the Nile” back to her feet! SIENNA GETS CLEOPATRA BY HER HEAD BEFORE RUNNING TOWARDS THE TURNBUCKLE AND BEGINS TO SLAM HER HEAD AGAINST IT! CLEOPATRA GOES STUMBLING BACK, BUT SIENNA SLAMS CLEOPATRA’S HEAD AGAINST THE TURNBUCKLE AGAIN! CLEOPATRA STUMBLES BACK A FEW STEPS, BUT SIENNA SPRINGBOARDS FROM THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK! CLEOPATRA GETS TAKEN DOWN TO HER KNEES! IT SEEMS LIKE SIENNA HAS CLEOPATRA IN PERFECT POSITION AS SHE HOPS OVER THE APRON! SHE IS WAITING FOR CLEOPATRA TO GET BACK TO HER FEET! SIENNA SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE ROPES — RAW SIENNA! THE SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK!

Gavin Kirkland: No! Cleopatra turns herself around! She manages to catch Sienna Jade by her feet! Cleopatra gets Sienna in position before connecting with an Alabama slam! That takes the Women’s World Champion down, but Cleopatra goes back to getting a hold of Sienna’s legs! What is Cleopatra going to do next? It seems like Cleopatra is looking to apply the sharpshooter! This is one of the most painful submission moves out there! I would hate to be in that position, but Cleopatra is applying the submission hold, so it is something that I would need to think about. :thinking: Sienna is trying to prevent Cleopatra from turning herself around! Sienna knows that if she is on her stomach, Cleopatra would have fully applied the sharpshooter! Sienna is trying to use her left foot in trying to kick Cleopatra away from her! Sienna wants no part of this submission move! THE BEAUTIFUL AND BLONDE CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO TURN SIENNA TO HER STOMACH! THE SHARPSHOOTER IS APPLIED AND BY THE LOOK OF AGONY ON SIENNA’S FACE! SHE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT! SIENNA IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO REACH FOR THE BOTTOM ROPE, BUT CLEOPATRA IS MAKING IT QUITE DIFFICULT TO DO SO! SIENNA NEEDS TO FIGURE OUT SOME WAY TO BREAK FREE OF THIS HOLD IF SHE WANTS TO KEEP THIS MATCH GOING! SIENNA IS TRYING TO DRAG HERSELF FORWARD AND GET TO THE BOTTOM ROPE, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE CLEOPATRA IS STRUGGLING AS SIENNA TRIES TO MOVE HERSELF FORWARD! CLEOPATRA IS SHAKING HER HEAD NO! SIENNA IS CLAWING TOWARDS THAT BOTTOM ROPE —

CJ Hana: Sienna Jade clutches onto the bottom rope as Cleopatra releases the hold! Sienna rolls herself underneath the ring as she rests on the apron! The official and Cleopatra have a bit of a word exchange before Cleopatra resumes to inflict as much pain as possible on Sienna! Sienna is resting on the apron! It seems like she is going to do her best to recover! If she were to stand up, I would not be shocked to see her legs going all jelly! Cleopatra sees an opening there before she rebounds herself off the ropes to connect with a basement dropkick that sends Sienna Jade to the outside! This match has been all Cleopatra at this point! Cleopatra has looked fantastic! Sienna Jade is on her back as Cleopatra looks like she is going to go for another spot in this match! Cleopatra gets herself on the top turnbuckle! Her body is shifted towards Sienna to the outside! Sienna is in perfect position as Cleopatra flies!

Gavin Kirkland: SHOOOOOOOTTTTTTINNNNNNNNGGG STTTAAARRRRRRR PRRREESSSSSSSS!! WHAT A THING OF BEAUTY! THAT SHOOTING STAR PRESS WAS ALSO NICE! CLEOPATRA FALLS ONTO SIENNA JADE ON THE OUTSIDE! THE CROWD IS UP ON THEIR FEET! CLEOPATRA PUT THAT BEAUTIFUL BODY ON HER’S ON THE LINE FOR OUR ENTERTAINMENT! THESE FANS ARE RIGHT TO BE UP ON THEIR FEET APPLAUDING THE LONGEST REIGNING VIXENS WORLD CHAMPION IN EAW HISTORY! Both Cleopatra and Sienna are down! The official looks to be less strict in this title defense than she normally would, but this also gives these two women the more freedom to do whatever they want in this match! A part of me wants to see what else Cleopatra does in this match! At the same time, I am quite concerned about what will happen to her if Cleopatra gets hurt! I would need to help her to the back! I would need to be by her side and all of you would not have the blessing of having me call this main event!

(Sienna Jade and Cleopatra are still down after Cleopatra connected with that shooting star press. A few moments pass as Cleopatra makes it back to her feet. Sienna, who took that shooting star press, needs to have Cleopatra get her back to her feet, but Sienna seems to be wobbly on her feet. Cleopatra seems to have more energy than her and this can only mean trouble.)

CJ Hana: CLEOPATRA HAS SIENNA JADE BY HER HEAD! CLEOPATRA RUNS AND THROWS SIENNA ONTO THE BARRICADE! THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION IS DOWN! CLEOPATRA IS RUTHLESS AND THE MORE THAT THIS MATCH PROGRESSES, WE WILL BE SEEING THAT A LOT MORE! CLEOPATRA APPROACHES OUR ANNOUNCER’S TABLE —

Cleopatra: Move aside! I’m clearing this table!

Gavin Kirkland (scrambles to get all of his papers): OF COURSE, MY LOVE! ANYTHING FOR YOU! :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes:

CJ Hana: :unamused:

(Both Gavin Kirkland and CJ Hana step aside and let Cleopatra do whatever she is planning to do. The two commentators have their headsets on, but are stepped to the side as they watch Cleopatra destroy their table.)

Gavin Kirkland: Cleopatra just took the cover of the table off! She gets one of our monitors before throwing it to the ground! She gets the other one before walking closer to Sienna Jade! Cleopatra is stalking Sienna, who is beginning to show some signs of life! CLEOPATRA TAKES A FEW STEPS BEFORE RUNNING AND HITTING SIENNA WITH THE MONITOR TOWARDS HER SKULL! SIENNA IS DOWN AGAIN! CLEOPATRA IS DESTROYING THIS POOR WOMAN! CLEOPATRA THROWS THE MONITOR TO THE SIDE BEFORE GETTING SIENNA BACK TO HER FEET! CLEOPATRA LEADS HER TO THE UNCOVERED ANNOUNCER’S TABLE BEFORE SLAMMING HER FIST FIRST AGAINST IT! SIENNA GOES BOUNCING BACK AND FINDS HERSELF IN A SEATED POSITION! I DON’T RECALL SIENNA BEING DOMINATED THE WAY SHE HAS BEFORE! CLEOPATRA GETS SIENNA AND PLACES HER BODY ON TOP OF THE TABLE! CLEOPATRA FINDS HERSELF ON TOP OF THE TABLE! I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE WHAT IS GOING TO TRANSPIRE NEXT, BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO BE PRETTY AT ALL! :lupe: Cleopatra has Sienna in position for Brutality! The Canadian destroyer! If Cleopatra can connect with this move, I don’t understand how Sienna Jade will be able to. Continue in this match! The last thing Sienna needs to do is have this move connect! Cleopatra with Brutality —

CJ Hana: No! Sienna Jade manages to flip Cleopatra over! Cleopatra falls onto her back as you can see the look on her face that the drop was not pleasant at all! Sienna goes stumbling to the other end of the announcer’s table! That must have taken all the energy out of her, but Sienna must find for some sort of way to continue on with this match! Sienna tries to get back to her feet, but she is having a hard time with doing so! SHE MANAGES TO GET CLEOPATRA BACK TO HER FEET! IT SEEMS LIKE SIENNA IS GOING TO GO FOR A MOVE OF HER OWN! SIENNA GETS CLEOPATRA IN POSITION — RRRRRRRRRRRDDDDDDDDDDDGGGGGGGGGGG!! THAT BRIDGING FISHERMAN’S SUPLEX ON CLEOPATRA! CLEOPATRA COLLIDES ONTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! CLEOPATRA IS DOWN AS SIENNA COLLAPSES ON OUT OF THE ANNOUNCER’S TABLE! SIENNA MANAGED TO CONNECT WITH THIS MOVE! IF SHE WANTS TO STAY ON THE OFFENSE, SHE NEEDS TO GET CLEOPATRA BACK INTO THE RING! SHE MAY HAVE JUST SAVED HER TITLE REIGN WITH THAT MOVE! SIENNA SLOWLY GETS BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE GETS CLEOPATRA UP TO HER FEET BEFORE WALKING HER TOWARDS THE APRON AND ROLLING HER BACK INTO THE RING! SIENNA SLIDES UNDERNEATH THE BOTTOM ROPE AS WELL AS SHE HOOKS CLEOPATRA’S LEG! SIENNA MAY HAVE JUST RETAINED HER TITLE!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!

Gavin Kirkland: CLEOPATRA KICKS OUT! SIENNA JADE IS ON HER KNEES! HER EYES ARE FULL OF SHOCK! HOW IN THE WORLD DID CLEOPATRA KICK OUT OF THAT MOVE? SIENNA IS TRYING TO CLARIFY WITH THE OFFICIAL THAT IT WAS A TWO COUNT! IN HER HEART, SHE WAS HOPING THAT IT WAS A THREE COUNT! CLEOPATRA HAS PUSHED HER SO MUCH IN THIS MATCH! SIENNA MANAGED TO KEEP HERSELF TOGETHER AS SHE CONNECTED WITH THAT RDG ON THE ANNOUNCER’S TABLE! SIENNA BEGINS CLUBBING CLEOPATRA ON THE HEAD! She gets Cleopatra back to a vertical base before whipping her to the corner! Cleopatra’s back collides with that corner harshly, but Sienna runs towards Cleopatra and connects with a double knees onto the stomach of Cleopatra! Cleopatra stumbles forward as Sienna connects with superkick, but instead of sending Cleopatra to her back, she sends Cleopatra back to that corner! Sienna begins to stomp on Cleopatra’s stomach as Cleopatra seats herself on the middle row of the turnbuckle! Cleopatra does not want to drop herself completely! She wants to remain as strong as possible! She just needs to fight on! I believe in her! SIENNA PRESSES HER FOOT AGAINST CLEOPATRA’S THROAT! CLEOPATRA DID A SIMILAR THING EARLIER IN THIS MATCH AND IT SEEMS LIKE SIENNA IS GOING TO GO FOR THAT SAME APPROACH! SIENNA GETS CLEOPATRA BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A LOUD SIDE HAND CHOP! SIENNA CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! CLEOPATRA IS HOLDING TO HER CHEST IN PAIN! YOU CAN SEE THAT IT’S STARTING TO GET A BIT PINK! SIENNA CAN SLAP THE HELL OUT YOU WELL ENOUGH THAT HER CHEST MAY BRUISE IN THE MORNING!

CJ Hana: Sienna Jade pulls Cleopatra closer before connecting with a DDT! Cleopatra lands on her head as it would be a good time for Sienna to get a cover, but I think that Sienna really wants to make sure that she has Cleopatra down! If that means inflict more punishment on the former Vixens Champion, that is exactly what she will do! SIENNA GETS CLEOPATRA IN POSITION! IT SEEMS LIKE SIENNA IS GOING TO TRY TO CONNECT WITH A GORY SPECIAL! THIS IS ONE IMPRESSIVE MOVE! WE SHOULD SEE IT MORE OFTEN WITH HER! SHE GETS CLEOPATRA IN POSITION AS SHE CONNECTS WITH THE CLAPBACK! CLEOPATRA FALLS FACE FIRST AS SIENNA GOES FOR THE COVER!

Marti Solo:OOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!!

Gavin Kirkland: THE LOVE OF MY LIFE KICKS OUT! SIENNA JADE GIVES OUT A HUGE GROWL! IT SEEMS LIKE THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION IS GETTING A TAD FRUSTRATED! CLEOPATRA IS STILL IN THIS MATCH AND THAT MAKES ME A HAPPY MAN! AT THIS POINT, IF SIENNA DOES NOT REALIZE THE LEVEL OF COMPETITOR CLEOPATRA IS, I AM NOT SURE IF SHE WILL EVER REALIZE IT! CLEOPATRA HAS LOOKED AMAZING IN THIS MATCH! SHE WAS DOMINATING A GOOD CHUNK OF THE MATCH! All Sienna needed was one opening to shift this match into her favor! Sienna cannot lose that! Sienna gets Cleopatra to a seated position as she connects with some knees onto the back of Cleopatra’s head! It seems like Sienna is more than willing to use any part of her body as a weapon if it means that she makes it out of this match as a winner! It seems like Sienna is gesturing for the end of this match! If I were Sienna, I would end this match as soon as possible! A woman like Cleopatra cannot be taken down! A woman like Cleopatra is so difficult to defeat! Cleopatra’s run at this moment has been her best in years! She has been busting her ass to make sure that she does not go back to irrelevancy! SIENNA HOPS OVER THE ROPES AS SHE GETS ON THE APRON AGAIN! SHE IS JUST WAITING FOR THE PERFECT MOMENT TO CONNECT WITH RAW SIENNA AGAIN! CLEOPATRA IS SLOWLY RISING BACK TO HER FEET! SIENNA BOUNCES ON THE TOP ROPE! RAAAAWWWWWWWWW SIEEEENNNNNNNAAAAAA!!

CJ Hana: THE MOVE CONNECTS! CLEOPATRA FALLS FACE FIRST AS SIENNA JADE RUSHES FOR THE COVER! THIS MATCH COULD BE OVER!

Gavin Kirkland: The smart Cleopatra manages to roll herself out of the ring! What a smart thing to do! Cleopatra is proving that she is a lot more than a blonde pretty face! I think that Cleopatra may have saved herself by rolling underneath the bottom rope! She is now ringside as Sienna almost looks quite angry about that! If Sienna would have gotten the pin there, this could have been the end of the match! Sienna rolls herself underneath the ring and to ringside! Cleopatra seems to be down and Sienna is more than willing to take advantage of that! Sienna gets Cleopatra back to her feet, but Cleopatra shows some strength as she rams Sienna Jade’s back against the edge of the apron! I don’t think Sienna saw that coming! Cleopatra throws some fists towards the Women’s World Champion’s face! CLEOPATRA GETS SIENNA BY HER RIGHT ARM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HEADBUTT THAT SENDS SIENNA TO HER KNEE! CLEOPATRA CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER HEADBUTT! CLEOPATRA GETS HERSELF ON TOP OF AT THE APRON! SHE GETS SIENNA ON THE APRON AS WELL! IT SEEMS LIKE CLEOPATRA IS GOING TO CONNECT WITH BRUTALITY ON THE APRON! IS CLEOPATRA INSANE? SHE COULD POSSIBLY HURT HERSELF IF SHE FAILS TO CONNECT WITH THIS MOVE! SIENNA SEEMS MOTIONLESS —

CJ Hana: BRRRRUUUUTAAAALLLLITTTTTYYYYYYYYYY!! WHAT A WICKED CANADIAN DESTROYER ON THE APRON! SIENNA JADE FALLS TO RINGSIDE AGAIN! CLEOPATRA RESTS ON THE APRON! CLEOPATRA MANAGED TO CONNECT WITH THE MOVE, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE SHE HURT HERSELF IN THE PROCESS! BOTH SIENNA AND CLEOPATRA HAVE PULLED OUT ALL THE STOPS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY WALK AWAY WITH THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP — THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT THIS MATCH! THIS IS WHAT THESE TWO WARRIORS ARE FIGHTING FOR! THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION MEANS THAT THEY ARE THE BETTER WOMAN OUT OF THE TWO! NO! THEY ARE THE BEST WRESTLER ON THE EMPIRE BRAND! Both these wrestlers are down, but Cleopatra manages to sit herself up as she gets down ringside to get Sienna Jade back into the ring! Cleopatra manages to roll Sienna back into the ring! Cleopatra has a huge grin on her face as she slides herself back into the ring as well! It seems like Cleopatra is three seconds away from becoming the new Women’s World Champion! Cleopatra hooks the leg!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEE!!

Gavin Kirkland: THAT IS ALL SHE WROTE! CLEOPATRA WINS!

CJ Hana: Sienna Jade has her foot on the bottom rope! Sienna is still in this match! Cleopatra covers her mouth in shock! She is in shock! She looks quite angry as she smacks her hands against the mat! Cleopatra is now feeling what Sienna felt when Cleopatra rolled underneath the ring after hitting that Raw Sienna! Cleopatra gets herself up! IT SEEMS LIKE CLEOPATRA IS GOING TO GO FOR THAT CLEO LOCK! IT IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE JETTA LOCK! IF YOU THOUGHT THAT BRUTALITY WAS SOMETHING, THAT CLEO LOCK IS SOMETHING ELSE! IT MAY ACTUALLY BE ENOUGH TO TAKE SIENNA DOWN! IT MAY MAKE HER SUBMIT! THE CLEO LOCK IS APPLIED! THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET! SIENNA IS STUCK AS SHE TRIES TO LOOK FOR SOME SORT OF WAY TO BREAK OUT OF THE HOLD! SIENNA IS SCREAMING! THE OFFICIAL IS ASKING SIENNA IF SHE WANTS TO TAP OUT, BUT SIENNA IS SHAKING HER HEAD NO! SIENNA REFUSES TO QUIT! SIENNA REFUSES TO GIVE UP! THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE TRAITS THAT HELPED HER BECOME WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION AT KING OF ELITE! SHE REFUSES TO WALK INTO THIS FIRST TITLE DEFENSE AND LOSE THE TITLE! SIENNA HAS GONE THROUGH A ROUGH JOURNEY JUST TO MAKE IT BACK TO THE MOUNTAIN TOP AND SHE REFUSES FOR CLEOPATRA TO KNOCK HER BACK DOWN!

Gavin Kirkland: Cleopatra bends her body back! She is trying to apply more pressure onto the Cleo Lock, but going back, but you can tell the she is starting to lose grip of the hold! Cleopatra is demanding for Sienna to tap out! She would love nothing more than to tap out with the Cleo Lock! Cleopatra is almost yelling at this point! You can hear from the tone of her voice how much winning would mean to her! Cleopatra would love nothing more than to get on top of the women’s division again! She wants to feel the success and peak that she did when she was Vixens Champion! Sienna Jade is trying her best to counter the Cleo Lock! It seems like she trying to take herself back as she would pin Cleopatra’s shoulder’s to the mat!

CJ Hana: Sienna Jade manages to roll herself as she pins Cleopatra’s shoulders to the mat!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Gavin Kirkland: Cleopatra gets her shoulders up! Cleopatra releases the hold that she had on Sienna Jade! Sienna quickly gets away from Cleopatra! She escapes the Cleo Lock, but out of luck, of course! When Cleopatra applies that Cleo Lock again, Sienna will not be so lucky then! Sienna is clutching to her lower back, it seems like Cleopatra may have added some injury on it! Cleopatra finds herself on her knees as she looks at Sienna with fire in her eyes! This Cleopatra is a sexy Cleopatra, CJ! SIENNA IS USING THE ROPES TO GET HERSELF BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE, SHE IS GESTURING FOR CLEOPATRA TO COME AT HER! SIENNA IS NOT GOING TO RUN FROM ANYTHING! SHE WORKED DAMN HARD TO GET THE WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS GOING TO RUIN THAT AT ALL! SIENNA AND CLEOPATRA GO RIGHT EACH OTHER WITH PUNCHES AT EACH OTHER! THE TWO WOMEN ARE THROWING PUNCHES AT EACH OTHER AT THE SAME TIME! SIENNA THROWS A FOREARM AT CLEOPATRA AS CLEOPATRA STUMBLES BACK, BUT SHE DELIVERS A FOREARM TO SIENNA, WHO STUMBLES BACK AS WELL, BUT SHE MANAGES TO THROW A FOREARM BACK AT CLEOPATRA! CLEOPATRA THROWS A FOREARM TO SIENNA AS SIENNA THROWS ONE BACK TO CLEOPATRA! SIENNA! CLEOPATRA! SIENNA! CLEOPATRA! SIENNA! THE MOTHER OF MY CHILD! SIENNA! THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!

CJ Hana: Gavin, please! Cleopatra manages to knee Sienna in the stomach before whipping her to the words! Sienna Jade manages to spring off the ropes before connecting with headscissors takedown! Cleopatra is spun around as she finds herself in a seated position! Sienna follows up that headscissors takedown with a stiff kick to the back of Cleopatra! By the look on Cleopatra’s face, you can tell that she is in pain! Both women have the will and desire to be the Women’s World Championship! Both women are willing to put so much on the line if it means that they can be champion! Sienna connects with a shoot kick to the back of Cleopatra! She connects with another shoot kick again! SIENNA IS CONNECTING WITH THOSE SHOOT KICKS TO THE BACK OF CLEOPATRA’S BACK RAPIDLY! SIENNA ALMOST LOOKS LIKE A POSSESSED WOMAN! SIENNA MANAGES TO GET CLEOPATRA BACK TO HER FEET BEFORE PULLING HER CLOSER AND CONNECTING WITH A WITCHES HAMMER! THAT RIPCORD ROLLING ELBOW ON CLEOPATRA —

Gavin Kirkland: — THE BEAUTIFUL AND BLONDE CLEOPATRA MANAGES TO DUCK THE WITCHES HAMMER! SIENNA JADE IS CAUGHT OFF GUARD WITH THAT AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A BACK KICK ON SIENNA, WHO BENDS FORWARD, CLUTCHING TO HER STOMACH IN RESPONSE! CLEOPATRA GETS SIENNA BY HER ARM —

CJ Hana: —WITCHES HAMMER BY CLEOPATRA! CLEOPATRA HITTING SIENNA JADE WITH HER OWN MOVE! SIENNA STUMBLES DOWN TO HER KNEES AS CLEOPATRA HAS TAPS THE SIDE OF HER HEAD WITH FINGER AS SHE DELIVERS A HUGE CRACKLE! CLEOPATRA GETS SIENNA IN POSITION! CLEOPATRA IS GOING TO GO FOR BRUTALITY AGAIN! SHE DID SO EARLIER IN THIS MATCH ON THE APRON, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE CLEOPATRA IS MORE THAN DETERMINED TO HIT THIS MOVE AND WIN THIS MATCH! BRRRRUUUUUUUTAAAAALLLLLIIIIITTTTTYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!

Gavin Kirkland: No! Sienna Jade manages to slide herself away from Cleopatra! Cleopatra goes after Sienna, but Sienna connects with drop toehold as that floors our “Queen of the Nile”! Sienna gets Cleopatra to her feet before she gets her in position — another Clapback on Cleopatra! CLEOPATRA IS DOWN! SIENNA HOPS ON THE RING AS SHE LANDS ON THE APRON! IT SEEMS LIKE SIENNA HAS RAW SIENNA ON HER MIND! IF SIENNA CAN CONNECT WITH THIS NEXT MOVE, IT CAN BE THE END OF THIS MATCH! SIENNA IS STALKING CLEOPATRA WHO IS SLOWLY GETTING BACK TO HER FEET! SIENNA SPRINGBOARDS FROM THE ROPES —

CJ Hana: RAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWW SIIIEEEEEENNNNNNNNAAAAAA!! The springboard dropkick as Cleopatra falls front first! The move connects as Sienna Jade quickly goes for the cover!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

CJ Hana: SIENNA JADE RETAINS!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(“Unfuckwithable” plays once again as Sienna Jade is breathing heavily after the well-fought match against Cleopatra. Sienna rolls off of Cleopatra as she gets on her knees. Even though tired, Sienna still has enough energy to put a huge grin on her face. The official hands Sienna Jade her Women’s World Championship as she raises it above her head in victory.)

Maria Del Rey: The WINNER AND STILL ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPION, SIEEEEENNNNNNNNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAA JAAAAAAAAAADDDDDDDDDDEEEEEEEE!!

Gavin Kirkland: NO! CLEOPATRA! 🙁 I was rooting for her to reclaim her throne on top of the women’s division! Cleopatra should have proved to Sienna Jade that she was more than some “old hag”! That the Cleopatra, who once ruled the women’s division was back and here to stay! Cleopatra went into this match and poured everything into this match, but Sienna Jade was not going to let go of that title without a fight!

(The camera pans to Amber Keys, who rolls Cleopatra underneath the bottom rope. Amber Keys gets Cleopatra’s arm and rests it on her shoulders as she helps her partner and escorts her out of ring side and up the ramp. Cleopatra seems very disappointed in herself, but on her way up the ramp, the fans are applauding the former Vixens Champion for her wonderful performance.)

CJ Hana: What a great title defense for Sienna Jade! She proved in this match that she was not a victim of being in the right place at the right time! Sienna proved that she was meant to be the champion! Sienna proved that she belongs on the top of Empire! Congratulations to Sienna Jade! The rest of the women on Empire better be on alert!

(The last shot is of Sienna Jade raising her Women’s World Championship high in the air. Sienna is on her feet as the scene fades.)

(The camera cuts to the training area where Andrea Valentine is seen applying ice to her neck. She sits against the wall and leans backwards in her chair as the fans in the arena cheer on the Heart of Empire.)

(She sits up, startled, as the door of the trainer’s room bursts open. She is surprised to see and hear The Crowe’s Nest and their entourage cheering and chanting “#FUCKEMPIRE” with bottles of sparkling wine as they celebrate their victories this evening. Raven Roberts is being hoisted up in the air by Jael and Chelsea.)

(They let her down. Raven Roberts takes a seat on one of the examination tables next to Andrea, barely able to stand on her own as her teammates celebrate. She turns slowly to see Andrea, visibly annoyed at the ruckus The Crowe’s Nest is bringing into the trainer’s area.)

Raven Roberts: Fuck Empire, amiright?

(The crowd in the arena boo’s as Raven offers Andrea a smile.)

Andrea Valentine: Easy to say for someone who’s night went exactly as they planned.

(Raven Roberts kicks her legs up on the examination table, allowing for one of the trainers to examine her burns and injuries.)

Raven Roberts: Take it from someone who’s been in your position before–the powers that run this place don’t give a damn about you. That’s exactly why I say fuck ‘em. Look at me, I’m still on top without them. I mean, at least you finally rid yourself of Stephon. You can finally sit back and relax and go back to doing…whatever it was you were doing before this man interjected himself in all your plans.

Andrea Valentine: Don’t insult me, Raven. I was on the top of the food chain long before you arrived. Sure, I’ve had a few setbacks in my career, but that’s never gonna stop me from getting back on top, where I know I belong. I can find it in myself to keep going and reaching for that goal because I know I want this bad enough, because I know I’m not against having to work and fight for that success. Unlike you, who instead decided to go on a Twitter rant like some fucking child to get yourself an ounce of attention from these so-called “powers” you can’t stand.

Raven Roberts: (She scoffs.) Really? Sure, my career took so many twists and turns in the span of one year, so many bumps and bruises…but still. Here I stand. Victorious. I’m worth a thousand today of what I once was when I first started out in REVOLT! Face it. Hell, I don’t even like being here and look at me–stealing the goddamn show, anyway. What about you, Andrea? When will the Heart of Empire finally start beating again?

(The Crowe’s Nest’s entourage eventually take over the trainer’s area, filling the room and blocking Andrea’s view of Raven before she can speak up. She throws the ice bag on the floor angrily, refusing the medical assistant’s request for her to stay seated. She walks out of the room, slamming the door behind her.)

(The scene fades into ring side as it goes to the ICONIC CUP which is seated on its pedestal all nice and prestigious. The Iconic Cup is shining underneath the spotlight as it is front and center. It will give the four women in the Iconic Warfare Match a reminder of what they are fighting for. At the ring, the Hell in a Cell is brought down, but instead of the typical gray cell, it is blue. The flashing lights and ominous music are playing in the background.)

Gavin Kirkland: I have been waiting all night for this match! This is going to be a bloodbath! Not sure if I should be happy or worried? :lupe:

CJ Hana: Remi Skyfire, Minerva, Kassidy Heart and Karina-Ann will be putting their bodies on the line to become the 2019 Iconic Cup winner!

(“Siren Assassin” — Kristine Elezaj plays throughout the speakers as Karina-Ann steps out to the top of the ramp as she poses for the crowd. The crowd is giving her a negative reception, but Karina-Ann could careless about it. Her eyes are laser focused at the Hell in the Cell in front of her, knowing what she will be putting herself through in this match.)

Maria Del Rey: The following match is an ICONIC WARFARE HELL IN A CELL MATCH scheduled for ONE FALL —

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

Maria Del Rey: And, it’s for the ICONIC CUP! Introducing one of the participants, representing Fatal Destiny, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, she is “The Siren Assassin”, KAAAARRRRRRRINNNNNNAAAAAA-AAAAANNNNNNNN!!

Gavin Kirkland: The beautiful and blonde Karina-Ann! My heart breaks that she failed to win the Empire Tag Team Championships earlier tonight! However, she has her sights on being the 2019 Iconic Cup holder! She managed to get a victory over Madison Kaline to qualify for this match! She is probably one of the underdogs in this match, but it seems like Karina-Ann plans to change people’s mind and make herself the favorite! She one out of my two favorites in the match! She would surprise people by winning! It would be great for the FOX image!

CJ Hana: Just like you said, Gavin. Karina-Ann had just competed in an Empire Tag Team Championship Match earlier tonight! She could still be banged up from the match! This may be a factor that holds her back. She’s had little time to recover and heal from whatever injuries she could have sustained in the match! But, if she is more than willing to fight the pain, she could manage to surprise the world tonight!

(Karina-Ann goes down the ramp as her eyes look at the Hell in a Cell. This happens for a moment before she take a deep breath before entering the structure. She poses in confidence in the ring before going to one of the corners before she waits for the rest of her opponents to enter the ring. “Put Em Up” — Lupe Fiasco replaces “Siren Assassin” as the crowd gives a standing ovation to Kassidy Heart, who seems to be a favorite going into this match. Kassidy stands on top of the ramp as she poses before focusing on the Hell in the Cell afterwards.)

Maria Del Rey: Introducing her opponents first, representing Jaded Hearts, from Sydney, Australia, she is one-half of the Unified Tag Team Champions, “The Queen of Hearts”, KASSSSSSIDDDDDDDDYYYYYYYYYY HEEEAAAAAARRRRRRRRRTTTT!!

CJ Hana: The ovation for Kassidy Heart is electric, Gavin! Love Kassidy or hate her, but there is no denying that this girl has managed to win over the EAW fans over the past year! This girl has taken part of some history-making matches! She has been an Empire Tag Team Champion, taken part of War Games, won the Grand Prix with Sienna Jade and is a Unified Tag Team Champion! This is one of the most accomplished women in this match and a threat that the three other competitors have to been on a look out for!

Gavin Kirkland: She is most certainly a favorite in this match, CJ! Kassidy Heart believed that she should have had her shining moment with the Empress of Elite crown, but Kassidy tried to not that discouraged her as she goes into this Iconic Warfare Match! Kassidy could have the Iconic Cup and be able to cash it in and win the Women’s World Championship at any place, anytime! Someone as talented as her shouldn’t have to wait for a Women’s World Championship Match to fall on her lap, but with the Iconic Cup, she could control her own destiny!

(Kassidy Heart, much like Karina-Ann did, is seen down the ramp as she looks at the Hell in a Cell. This structure was not going to be nice to her whatsoever. Kassidy takes a deep breath before she enters Hell in a Cell. Kassidy gets inside as she poses for the crowd again before exchanging a look at Karina-Ann before standing at her own respective corner. “Big Bad Wolf” — In This Moment replaces “Put Em Up” as a spotlight appears and shines on Minerva. She has her Gypsy chain in her possessions as she has the dark hood covering her face. The crowd begins to boo at the young woman.)

Maria Del Rey: From Coyote Flats, Texas, she is the “Gypsy Moth”, MINNNNNEEERRRRRRRVVVAAAAAAA!!

Gavin Kirkland: Minerva is everything I hate in a woman, but I am not going to say that to my face or she’ll slap the s—t out of me! Minerva has managed to get herself in a little undefeated streak since debuting on Empire! Despite that, there are a few people that see Minerva as the “dark horse” of the match! There are not much people, who believe that Minerva will impress in this match! However, I would feel like this would be a match where Minerva could shine in, right?

CJ Hana: Minerva is probably the most intimidating woman in this match! She has yet to experience a loss in EAW! She really doesn’t care about anything in this world. She wouldn’t care about what she needs to do in this match. As long as she gets a victory, Minerva will be a happy camper! This match has no rules really! Minerva can do what she wants — as long as it doesn’t kill someone, we’ll be good! I think this an environment where Minerva can be really dangerous in and that is something that her three opponents need to take under consideration!

(Minerva has a sinister look on her face as she looks at the Hell in a Cell up and down before she gets inside the structure. When she makes it inside, Minerva takes a look of Hell in a Cell from the inside before she pays attention to Karina-Ann and Kassidy Heart already in the corner. Minerva gives a sarcastic wave to her opponents before going to her corner to stand on their respective corners as they wait for the last opponent to show up in the match. “Fuel” — Metallica replaces “Big Bad Wolf” as Remi Skyfire steps into top of the ramp. Remi begins to pump herself up as she looks at the Hell in the Cell from where she is at. The crowd booing seems to be continuing, but Remi is way too focused on the match to worry about anything else.)

Maria Del Rey: And lastly, from Somerset, Kentucky, she is “The Punisher”, REEEEEEEEMMMMMMMMMMIIIII SKKKKKYYYYYYYYFIIIIIIRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!

CJ Hana: Remi Skyfire managed to get a victory over Layla Lockhart to qualify for this match, but approaching the Iconic Cup, she seemed to have a tough time with trying to get a victory to get herself some momentum! That all changed on the last episode of Empire, where she managed to roll up Cleopatra after a distraction from Sienna Jade! This was something that Remi really needed going into this event! However, Remi has an accomplishment of her own. She’s a former Specialists Champion! She won the match during the Specialists Scramble at Pain for Pride Festival. Not many people believe that she would end up winning the match! However, Remi proved everyone wrong that night and made an impression on a huge stage like that one!

Gavin Kirkland: You also need to take under consideration that Remi Skyfire has managed to crumble underneath the pressure. Ever since her loss against Tyler Wolfe at Territorial Invasion last year, she has had a tough time with getting another championship reign! She had a good shot against then-New Breed Champion, Raven Roberts, but it was a failed job at Remi’s part, which caused her to go to the hospital and spend two months recovering from her injuries! If she can make the leap from being in a hospital to being the Iconic Cup winner, it would be such an amazing thing for Remi!

(Remi Skyfire is already down the ramp as she looks at the Hell in a Cell. She is more than willing to do whatever it takes to win. She slowly enters Hell in a Cell before raising her arms up in confidence when she gets to the middle of the ring. She exchanges a look with Karina-Ann, Kassidy Heart and Minerva before making her way to her own corner as she waits for this match to begin.)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

CJ Hana: This Hell in a Cell Match for the Iconic Cup is underway! Kassidy Heart, Remi Skyfire, Minerva and Karina-Ann! This is an interesting group of competitors, Gavin! I do not think that anyone expected for these four to even qualify for the match! Any of them would hold the Iconic Cup with prestige and seize the opportunity! Each woman is standing at their respective corner as they all exchange looks at one another while taking in Satan’s structure and processing the environment they will be getting themselves involved in! This match is no laughing matter, but with the Iconic Cup and possessing your destiny to cash in and become Women’s World Champion, all of these women are going to put EVERYTHING on the line! The four of these women are just waiting for someone to make the first move in this match! This can help shift the match in a different direction! Which woman is going to make the first move?

Gavin Kirkland: MINERVA STRIKES KASSIDY HEART WITH THAT GYPSY CHAIN AT HER BACK! KASSIDY YELPS IN PAIN! REMI SKYFIRE GOES RIGHT AFTER MINERVA, WHO STRIKES THE GYPSY CHAIN DIRECTLY TO REMI’S HEAD AS THAT MAKES HER TURN AWAY FROM MINERVA! KARINA-ANN GOES RIGHT AFTER MINERVA AS MINERVA GOES TO STRIKE THE GYPSY CHAIN, BUT KARINA-ANN IS ABLE TO DUCK! HA, YOU MISSED MINERVA! KARINA-ANN CONNECTS WITH A BACK KICK, BUT MINERVA MANAGES TO CATCH KARINA-ANN’S FOOT! KARINA-ANN IS HOPPING ON ONE FOOT AS SHE IS WAGGING HER FINGER AND DEMANDING FOR MINERVA TO RELEASE HER FOOT! IT SEEMS LIKE MINERVA IS NOT LOOKING TO COMPLY WITH THE BEAUTIFUL KARINA-ANN! KARINA-ANN CONNECTS WITH AN ENZIGURI as minerva stumbles to the side! Karina-Ann begins to throw a series of punches at Minerva’s back! These punches get more aggressive with each one being thrown! Minerva gets down to her knees as Karina-Ann connects with a giant shoot kick to Minerva’s back! Karina-Ann rebounds from the ropes to connect with a low dropkick to Minerva’s back! Minerva falls forward as that allows Karina-Ann to step on Minerva’s back and rebound from the ropes in front of Minerva and connect with another dropkick to Minerva’s face! Minerva falls to her back as Karina-Ann goes for the first over of this match!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOONE!!

CJ Hana: Minerva quickly kicks out, but Karina-Ann begins to apply a chinlock on Minerva. Meanwhile, we shift our focus from Karina-Ann and Minerva and we focus on Kassidy Heart and Remi Skyfire, who have taken this match outside of the ring! In a way, these four women are quite limited on where they can take this match; however, with the brutality of Hell in a Cell, that might be able to make up for things! Remi Skyfire manages to pick up Kassidy Heart and connect with a German suplex! KASSIDY HEART LANDS NECK FIRST AGAINST THE CELL WALL! KASSIDY IS CLUTCHING HER NECK IN PAIN! KASSIDY MANAGES TO GET HERSELF INTO A SEATED POSITION AS SHE IS RESTING WITH HER NECK AGAINST THE CELL WALL, BUT REMI MANAGES TO TURN KASSIDY AROUND AND PRESS HER FOOT AGAINST HER NECK! AT THE SAME TIME, KASSIDY’S FACE IS BEING PRESSED AGAINST THE CELL WALL! THE CROWD IS REACTING NEGATIVELY TO ALL OF THIS! IT SEEMS LIKE THIS CROWD IS GOING TO BE PRO-KASSIDY IN THIS MATCH!

Remi Skyfire: IS THIS WHO YOU WANT AS YOUR FACE?

Gavin Kirkland: YES, THAT IS WHO WE WANT AS OUR FACE OF FOX! STEPHON HUNTE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SAY ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, BUT I WILL SPEAK IN BEHALF OF HIM! THAT B*TCH REMI SKYFIRE BEGINS TO STOMP THE BACK OF KASSIDY’S HEAD! AT THE SAME TIME, KASSIDY’S FACE IS BEING BASHED AGAINST THE CELL WALL! VIEWERS AT HOME, PLEASE SHIELD YOUR EYES FROM THIS MESS! I DON’T EVEN WANT TO SEE THIS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I DON’T WANT TO MISS ANYTHING! I AM DOING YOU PEOPLE A FAVOR! REMI GETS KASSIDY BY HER HEAD AND GETS HER BACK UP TO HER FEET! REMI GETS KASSIDY BY HER WAIST BEFORE RAMMING HER AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE APRON! REMI THEN RAMS KASSIDY AGAINST THE CELL WALL! THEN, REMI RAMS KASSIDY AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE APRON AND THEN, BACK TO THE CELL WALL! REMI IS JUST DOING THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN! REMI IS REFUSING TO STOP, BUT THERE IS NOT MUCH THE OFFICIAL CAN DO IN THIS MATCH! THIS IS NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! NO COUNTOUTS! Everything that has occurred in this match has been legal! Remi rams Kassidy against the edge of the apron as Remi stops whatever she is doing! Kassidy begins to step forward as Remi connects with a back elbow that makes Kassidy stumble back! Remi connects with a bolo punch that knocks the Unified Tag Team Champion against the apron again! Kassidy is holding that pretty face of hers! I hope that it’s not bruised!

CJ Hana: I don’t think Kassidy Heart herself cares about what she has to put her body through in this match. But, let’s shift our attention towards what is happening in the ring! Karina-Ann has a bow and arrow stretch applied to Minerva, who is crying out in pain! Marti Solo is asking Minerva if she wants to submit, but Minerva is shaking her head no! Minerva does not want to quit this match! She knows what is on the line in this match! She knows that by winning this match, she could make herself one of the fastest rising stars that we have seen on Empire! For me, I don’t want to see a winner any time soon! We haven’t even gotten to the bottom to what this structure is capable of doing! We saw a bit of a preview with how Hell in a Cell can be utilized by Remi Skyfire, but I would love to see what we can expect from women like Minerva and Karina-Ann! Karina-Ann manages to kick Minerva on her back! Minerva crashes face first on the mat! At the same time, this releases the bow and arrow stretch that Karina-Ann had on Minerva! Karina-Ann gets back to her feet as she gets Minerva back to hers as well! Karina-Ann gets Minerva by one of her arms before whipping her to the corner! Minerva holds onto the corner, but Karina-Ann runs and connects with a flying forearm to Minerva at the corner! Minerva begins to fall down to a seated positon, but Karina-Ann begins to stomp on Minerva’s stomach as Minerva slowly gets to a seated position at the corner! At that moment, Karina-Ann begins to get her foot and press it against Minerva’s throat!

Gavin Kirkland: Minerva is gasping for air as Karina-Ann is doing a fantastic job at sucking the life out of that “Gypsy Moth”! Karina-Ann jumps on the second rope before jumping herself down on Minerva’s throat! Minerva is holding her throat in pain! Karina-Ann is showing some aggression and I don’t think that she is planning to stop that anytime soon! KARINA-ANN GETS MINERVA BACK TO HER FEET, BUT MINERVA CONNECTS WITH A PUNCH THAT MAKES KARINA-ANN STAGGER BACK A BIT! KARINA-ANN PROCEEDS TO PUNCH MINERVA BACK! MINERVA PUNCHES KARINA-ANN, BUT KARINA-ANN PUNCHES MINERVA BACK — NO MINERVA GETS KARINA-ANN BY HER RIGHT HAND! MINERVA PROCEEDS TO BITE KARINA-ANN’S HAND! KARINA-ANN IS YELLING OUT IN PAIN AS SHE MANAGES TO GET HER HAND AWAY FROM MINERVA, BUT MINERVA FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A SPINNING BACK KICK! MINERVA MANAGES TO GET KARINA-ANN BY HER ARM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A HIP TOSS AS KARINA-ANN LANDS IN A SEATED POSITION! MINERVA FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A SUPERKICK TO A SEATED KARINA-ANN! KARINA-ANN FALLS TO HER BACK AS MINERVA QUICKLY GOES FOR THE COVER!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOONE!!

CJ Hana: Karina-Ann manages to kick out at one! Minerva nor Karina-Ann are ready to give up in this match! Winning the Iconic Cup would eliminate any stigma of Karina-Ann being a “tag team wrestler” and would help her become her own individual! Minerva rises back to her feet as she has a sinister look on her face! She is quietly gesturing for Karina-Ann to make it back to her feet! Karina-Ann is slowly rising back to her feet as Karina-Ann turns herself around! Minerva with the scissors kick on Karina-Ann as that takes her down to one knee! Minerva follows that up with an another superkick that takes Karina-Ann down! Minerva turns herself around — Kassidy Heart finds herself inside the ring as she connects with a springboard forearm to Minerva’s face! MINERVA STAGGERS BACK A BIT AS KASSIDY RISES BACK TO HER FEET QUICKLY! KASSIDY RUNS TOWARDS THE ROPES, REBOUNDS OFF OF THEM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A P.C.S KICK! THE HELLUVA KICK AS THAT MANAGES TO PUSH MINERVA THROUGH THE SECOND ROPE AND OUTSIDE THE RING! KASSIDY DOESN’T PLAN ON GIVING MINERVA ANY TIME TO BREATHE AS SHE GOES THROUGH THE SECOND ROPE AND CONNECTS WITH A SUICIDE DIVE TO THE OUTSIDE! BOTH KASSIDY HEART AND MINERVA COLLIDE ON THE CELL WALL! THE TWO WOMEN ARE DOWN FOR THE TIME BEING! KASSIDY IS TRYING TO MUSTER ENOUGH STRENGTH TO GET BACK TO HER FEET! MINERVA IS TRYING TO DO THE SAME THING, BUT KASSIDY ENDS UP BEING THE FIRST WOMAN BACK TO HER FEET AS SHE GETS MINERVA BY HER ARM AND WHIPS HER AGAINST THE CELL WALL! MINERVA IS CLUTCHING TO HER BACK IN PAIN! KASSIDY FOLLOWS THAT WHIP WITH A HIGH KNEE! MINERVA’S HEAD GOES BACK AS KASSIDY FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP AS MINERVA CRASHES ONTO THE FLOOR RINGSIDE!

Gavin Kirkland: My beautiful and blonde Kassidy Heart has managed to turn this match into her favor! I knew that she would be able to do that! I never doubted her for a second! Kassidy lifts the ring skirt and begins to search for any sort of weapon to bring into this match! Why would she even consider that? If one of those weapons fall into the wrong hands, it can seriously hurt her?

(Kassidy Heart looks deeply underneath the ring. She manages to pull out a steel chair which she holds up to the crowd’s approval. Kassidy shifts her attention back to Minerva.)

Gavin Kirkland: If Kassidy Heart manages to connect this steel chair to Minerva, I would be shocked! Minerva is slowly getting back to her feet and I don’t think the poor thing has a clue what lies ahead of her! Kassidy Heart with any sort of weapon is dangerous and as long as Kassidy doesn’t get her body hit with anything, I will be a happy camper! KASSIDY TAKES THAT STEEL CHAIR AND RAMS THE EDGE OF IT AGAINST MINERVA’S STOMACH! MINERVA CLUTCHES HER STOMACH IN PAIN AS KASSIDY GETS THE STEEL CHAIR AGAIN AND SMACKS IT AGAINST MINERVA’S BACK AS SHE FALLS TO AN ALL FOURS POSITION! KASSIDY SMACKS THE STEEL CHAIR ONTO MINERVA’S BACK AGAIN! AND AGAIN! KASSIDY IS GOING BALLISTIC WITH THESE STEEL CHAIR SHOTS! SHE IS NOT CUTTING MINERVA SOME SLACK AND I AM LOVING THIS! NO ONE STOP HER! KASSIDY STOPS WHAT SHE IS DOING AS SHE THROWS THE STEEL CHAIR TOWARDS THE RING! HOLY S*IT! KASSIDY HEART JUST THREW THE STEEL CHAIR DIRECTLY AT KARINA-ANN’S FACE! I HAVE NO CLUE IF KASSIDY WAS LUCKY THERE OR IF SHE SPOTTED KARINA-ANN RUNNING TOWARDS HER, BUT I WOULD NOT BE SHOCKED IF KARINA-ANN JUST BROKE HER NOSE WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR SHOT!

CJ Hana: That was a perfect opportunity and Kassidy Heart took advantage of that, but I think Karina-Ann is the first woman in this match to have crucial injury!

(Karina-Ann uncovers her nose as you can see the blood spilling out of her nose. Instead of panicking and worrying, Karina-Ann just seems very pissed and is gesturing for Kassidy Heart to get back into the ring and face her. However, Karina-Ann is oblivious to Remi Skyfire, who had been patiently waiting for her opportunity to get back in this match behind her.)

Gavin Kirkland: Come on, Karina-Ann! No one wants to see blonde-on-blonde violence! I persONALLY DO NOT WANT TO SEE THAT! TURN YOURSELF AROUND, YOU HAVE WORSE THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT RIGHT NOW! KASSIDY HEART DOES KARINA-ANN A FAVOR BY TURNING HER AROUND AS KARINA-ANN IS FACING REMI SKYFIRE! KARINA-ANN BEGINS TO BACK A WAY! SHE WANTS NO PART OF REMI AND I DO NOT BLAME HER! NO ONE ON THIS BRAND WANTS PART OF REMI! KARINA-ANN TURNS HERSELF AROUND TO FACE KASSIDY, WHO CONNECTS WITH A HEEL KICK THAT SENDS KARINA-ANN BACK! THANKS TO THE ASSIST BY KASSIDY, REMI MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH A DROPKICK THAT SENDS KARINA-ANN TO HER BACK! MEANWHILE, KASSIDY TURNS HER ATTENTION TO MINERVA BY CONNECTING WITH A METEORA TO THE OUTSIDE AGAIN! Both of them go down as we shift our focus from the action outside to what Remi Skyfire and Karina-Ann are doing inside the ring! Remi gets Karina-Ann and begins to mount a series of elbow strikes at the blonde! Karina-Ann is having her head struck with a bunch of elbows by Remi! Remi stops doing that as she manages to pick Karina-Ann by her injured nose as she gets back to her feet! Karina-Ann is crying out in pain! I think that nose may be broken, CJ! If it is, FOX will pay for a new one! Preferably something less bird like!

CJ Hana: Gavin, now is not the time to talk about cosmetic procedures! Remi Skyfire and Karina-Ann are the two women at the ring at the moment as Remi still has not let go of Karina-Ann’s nose! Remi twists Karina-Ann’s nose as! Karina-Ann is screaming out in pain as she gets down to one knee! Remi follows that up with a European uppercut! Karina-Ann falls down to the mat as she tries to roll herself away from Remi! It would be smart for Karina-Ann to buy herself some time! Karina-Ann manages to roll herself out of the ring! I like it when people take my advice! Remi decides to follow Karina-Ann outside the ring! Karina-Ann hides her head underneath the ring! Remi decides to get Karina-Ann by her legs, but Karina-Ann is not letting go! I’m assuming that she is holding onto something that is making it hard for Remi to yank her from underneath the ring! Remi Skyfire goes to yank Karina-Ann from underneath the ring again, but no luck! Remi goes to yank Karina-Ann from underneath the ring from a third time —

Gavin Kirkland: — KARINA-ANN JUST SMACKS A KENDO STICK ONTO REMI SKYFIRE’S FACE! REMI GOES BACK AS KARINA-ANN TRIES TO SCRAMBLE BACK TO HER FEET AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BEFORE HITTING THAT KENDO STICK OVER AND OVER TO VARIOUS PARTS OF REMI’S BODY! REMI IS BACKED AWAY TO THE CELL WALL AS SHE IS TRYING TO SHIELD HER FACE FROM THE HITS, BUT SHE IS HAVING NO LUCK WHEN IT COMES TO THAT! KARINA-ANN GETS REMI AND PLACES THE KENDO STICK HEAR HER THROAT BEFORE CLIMBING UP ONTO THE APRON! KARINA-ANN STILL HAS REMI WITH THE KENDO STICK ON HER THROAT! KARINA-ANN HAS A STANDING CHOKEHOLD APPLIED ON THE FORMER SPECIALISTS CHAMPION! REMI’S FEET ARE OFF THE GROUND AS SHE IS FEELING THE PAIN OF THAT CHOKEHOLD! KARINA-ANN WOULD NEED TO FIND HERSELF BACK IN THE RING IF SHE WANTS ANY CHANCE OF SUBMITTING REMI! KARINA-ANN IS CHOKING THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS OUT OF REMI! I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF REMI PASSES OUT HERE, BUT THINGS ARE NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR REMI! I COULD CARELESS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS TO REMI, BUT A DEATH ON LIVE TV WOULD NOT BE GOOD THING FOR FOX OR EAW! SOMEONE HAS REMI SKYFIRE BY HER ANKLES —

CJ Hana: — It’s Minerva, Gavin! I have no clue why Minerva is trying to pull Remi Skyfire by her ankles! How does this benefit her? Karina-Ann looks down at Minerva as she releases the standing chokehold on Remi! Remi drops down ring side as Minerva climbs up to the apron! These two faced off around the beginning of the match and it seems like these two will be going for round two! Minerva connects with a forearm to Karina-Ann! Karina-Ann connects with a forearm back! These two are on the edge of the apron! If one of them falls, this could be one of the reasons for them losing the match! Minerva connects with a forearm that makes Karina-Ann stumble back, but she manages to find her b balance again! Karina-Ann connects with a forearm that makes Minerva stumble back, but just like Karina-Ann, she manages to find her balance! MINERVA MANAGES TO POKE REMI SKYFIRE IN THE EYE! THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE DIRTY TRICKS THAT PEOPLE NEED TO BE ON A LOOK OUT FROM MINERVA! EARLIER IN THIS MATCH, SHE MANAGED TO BITE KARINA-ANN’S HAND! HOWEVER, SINCE THIS IS A HELL IN A CELL MATCH, THIS IS ALL PERFECTLY LEGAL AND IT MAY GIVE HER AN EDGE IN THIS MATCH! MINERVA GETS KARINA-ANN IN POSITION FOR THE TPK: THE PRINCESS KILLER! THE SPINNING TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER! THESE TWO WOMEN ARE ON THE APRON AND MINERVA IS MORE THAN WILLING TO GO FOR THIS MOVE? MINERVA, DO NOT DO THIS? IF YOU MISS THIS MOVE, THIS WILL BE IT FOR YOU! THIS IS NOT WORTH IT!

Gavin Kirkland: THEEEEEEEE PRRRRRINNNNCCCCCCCCEEESSSSSSSS KILLLLLLLEEEERRRRRRR!! MINERVA MANAGES TO TWIST HERSELF AS SHE CONNECTS WITH THE TPK ON KARINA-ANN! THE TWO WOMEN GO FLYING OFF THE APRON AND LAND ON THE OUTSIDE! THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET WITH THAT ONE! I THINK IT MAY HAVE KNOCKED THE WIND OUT OF MINERVA! BOTH KARINA-ANN AND MINERVA ARE DOWN! I’M CONCERNED ABOUT KARINA-ANN TAKING A TOMBSTONE IS NEVER A GOOD THING, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE SHE LANDED HEAD FIRST RINGSIDE! Kassidy Heart manages to get Minerva and throw her head against the cell walls as that goes bouncing back! Minerva is down for sure as Kassidy manages to get Karina-Ann and roll her back into the ring! Kassidy slides underneath the bottom rope and back into the ring. It seems like Kassidy is going to steal a victory here! Kassidy hooks the leg! Will this be enough to walk away with the Iconic Cup?

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THR—

CJ Hana: KARINA-ANN JUST KICKED OUT! KASSIDY HEART’S JAW DROPS TO THE FLOOR! HOW IN THE HELL DID KARINA-ANN KICK OUT OF THAT! BY REFLECTING ON THOSE PAST FEW MOMENTS, IT SEEMED LIKE KASSIDY TOOK MORE TIME THAN SHE SHOULD HAVE! PERHAPS, IF SHE WASN’T FOCUSED ON GETTING MINERVA OUT OF THE EQUATION, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A THREE COUNT! With that kick out, Karina-Ann just proved how much she wants to win the Iconic Cup! Karina-Ann just proved that she can take punishment and hang with the best in the roster! Kassidy Heart gets herself back to her feet as she gets Karina-Ann’s body up as well! Karina-Ann looks out of it, Gavin! It seemed like that kick out took all the energy she had left! Kassidy delivers a huge slap across Karina-Ann’s face! KASSIDY GETS KARINA-ANN IN POSITION AS SHE CONNECTS WITH STARGAZING! THE FALLING INVERTED DDT ON KARINA-ANN! IT SEEMS LIKE KASSIDY IS MORE THAN DETERMINED TO END THIS MATCH AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! OUT OF THE THREE OTHER COMPETITORS IN THE MATCH, IT SEEMS LIKE IT WOULD BE THE EASIEST TO PIN KARINA-ANN! KARINA-ANN HAS THE BROKEN NOSE! SHE TOOK THAT VICIOUS TPK FROM THE APRON TO RINGSIDE! KARINA-ANN KICKING OUT MUST HAVE TAKEN SO MUCH ENERGY OUT OF HER! I DON’T THINK KARINA-ANN HAS ANYTHING LEFT IN HER! KASSIDY IS STALKING KARINA-ANN WHO IS UP TO HER FEET! SHE IS WAITING FOR HER MOMENT TO STRIKE! KASSIDY RUNS AS SHE CONNECTS WITH PAINFULLY EVER AFTER! THE CURBSTOMP AS KARINA-ANN’S HEAD GOES BOUNCING OFF THE MAT! KASSIDY GOES FOR THE COVER!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEE!!

Gavin Kirkland: KASSIDY HEART HAS DONE IT!

CJ Hana: Not quite, Gavin! The official is waving off the count! Karina-Ann’s foot is on the bottom rope! Kassidy Heart gets to her knees as she has a heartbroken look on her face! She wants to win this match badly! She refuses for this opportunity to slip away like Manifest Destiny! Kassidy Heart needs to win this match — SOMEONE HAS A HAND ON KASSIDY’S HAIR! THEY ARE YANKING HER BACK TO A VERTICAL BASE! REMI SKYFIRE HAS KASSIDY BY HER HAIR! REMI THROWS KASSIDY TO THE OUTSIDE! REMI EXITS THE RING AS SHE GETS KASSIDY BY HER HAIR AGAIN! JUST LIKE A RAG DOLL, REMI THROWS KASSIDY AGAINST THE CELL WALL! BUT, REMI DOES NOT LET GO OF KASSIDY AS SHE THROWS HER AGAINST THE CELL WALL AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! REMI SKYFIRE DOESN’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT KASSIDY AS SHE MANAGES TO THROW HER ONTO THE CELL WALL AGAIN! KASSIDY IS ON ALL FOURS AS SHE IS TRYING TO LOOK FOR THE NEAREST THING TO HELP HER BACK UP TO HER FEET, BUT THAT HAPPENS TO BE REMI SKYFIRE!

(Kassidy Heart’s eyes connect with Remi Skyfire, who is giving Kassidy the most sinister look that she could give her. Around Remi’s hands, you could see the very sharp cestus wrapped around her hands as …)

Gavin Kirkland: REMI SKYFIRE BEGINS TO POUND AWAY AT KASSIDY HEART’S FACE! KASSIDY’S BEAUTIFUL FACE IS BEING STABBED WITH THE SPIKES AS BLOOD BEGINS TO POUR FROM HER FOREHEAD! SOMEONE HAND THIS WOMAN A TOWEL! THIS IS NOT GOOD FOR THE FOX IMAGE! REMI IS DOING EVERYTHING IN HER POWER TO MAKE KASSIDY FALL TO HER BACK, BUT KASSIDY REMAINS ON HER KNEES AS SHE IS TAKING EVERY OUNCE OF PUNISHMENT THAT REMI IS DISHING OUT ON HER! KASSIDY HEART REFUSES TO LET THIS MOMENT SLIP AWAY FROM HER! THIS MEANS SO MUCH TO HER, BUT REMI IS LETTING EVERYONE IN THE ARENA KNOW HOW MUCH THIS MOMENT MEANS TO HER AS WELL! REMI REBOUNDS FROM THE ROPES AND CONNECTS WITH A BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE TO KASSIDY HEART’S FACE! KASSIDY COLLAPSES TO HER BACK AS SHE IS HOLDING HER NOSE IN PAIN! THIS POOR GIRL HAS BEEN PUT THROUGH ENOUGH! REMI GETS KASSIDY BY HER HAIR AGAIN! REMI GETS KASSIDY IN POSITION — THE DEVIL KNEE! THE KAMIGOYE ON THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION! KASSIDY FALLS TO HER BACK ONCE AGAIN AS REMI GOES FOR THE COVER AGAIN!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THR—

CJ Hana: MINERVA BREAKS THE PIN AT THE LAST SECOND! SHE JUST SAVED THIS MATCH UP! Minerva is back on her feet after delivering that harsh TPK on the apron to Karina-Ann! Minerva is also a woman you cannot count out in this match! She is as hungry as the rest of the women in the match! Minerva has the gipsy chain in her possession! Minerva is gesturing for Kassidy Heart to get back to a vertical base! Minerva is more than excited — Minerva swings the gypsy chain on Kassidy! Kassidy falls back to the ground, but Minerva gets Kassidy and throws her out of the ring! Kassidy is taken out of the equation! Minerva is stick with Remi Skyfire who is inside the ring! Remi is trying to make it back to a vertical base herself, but Minerva runs right after her by swinging the gypsy chain right at Remi! Remi falls back to the ground as Minerva is the only woman standing in the ring! Minerva gets the gypsy chain and wraps it around Remi’s neck! OH MY GOD! MINERVA IS CHOKING THE LIVING HELL OUT OF REMI SKYFIRE! REMI IS DEFENSELESS AT THE MOMENT! REMI MAY PASS OUT IF SHE FAILS TO FIND A WAY TO GET OUT OF THIS SITUATION! LOOK AT MINERVA, GAVIN! MINERVA TRANSITIONED TO THE CATTLE MUTATION! SHE CALLS THAT THE OWL OF MINERVA! REMI IS STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS MINERVA HAS THIS SUBMISSION MOVED LOCKED IN! THIS IS NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR REMI WHATSOEVER! REMI IS CONFLICTED ON WHAT SHE SHOULD DO! SHOULD SHE TRY TO MAKE IT TO THE BOTTOM ROPE? SHOULD SHE SUBMIT? MINERVA IS SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HER LUNGS! SHE WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN FOR REMI TO SUBMIT!

Gavin Kirkland: Karina-Ann gets Remi Skyfire by her legs as she pulls her out of the ring! Karina-Ann just stole what could possible be a victory for Minerva! Karina-Ann gets Remi Skyfire by her head as she throws Remi at the cell wall! Remi’s entire body goes flying against the wall as “The Punisher” drops down! Karina-Ann really seems to be winded and I don’t blame her! The woman just fought in the Empire Tag Team Championship Match earlier tonight! She is not Cameron Ella Ava! She is not made for the double booked life, but Karina-Ann may be showing some signs of life! Minerva still has a pissed off look on her face as Karina-Ann steps back into the apron! Minerva delivers a forearm to Karina-Ann, but Karina-Ann jumps down from the apron! Of course, this beautiful blonde saw that coming! She is not going to be another one of Minerva’s victims! Karina-Ann is demanding for the official to hold back Minerva and prevent her from exiting the ring!

(Karina-Ann lifts up the ring skirt again to look for some sort of weapon to bring into this match. This goes on for a moment, before Karina-Ann manages to pull out a…)

CJ Hana: A TABLE! THIS CROWD IS ON THE EDGE OF THEIR SEATS AS KARINA-ANN BRINGS A TABLE TO THE FOLD! KARINA-ANN SLIDES THE TABLE UNDERNEATH THE BOTTOM ROPE BEFORE SLIDING HERSELF UNDERNEATH AFTERWARDS! KARINA BEGINS TO SET THE TABLE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING AS THE OFFICIAL IS HOLDING BACK MINERVA, WHO LOOKS MORE THAN READY TO BEAT THE HELL OUT OF KARINA-ANN! Karina-Ann is done setting up the table, but she ends up standing on the table as she begins to talk down on Minerva, but our audio is not picking up what is exactly being said between the two of them! Minerva gets on top of the table with Karina-Ann! KarinA-ANN HAS HER HANDS UP IN SURRENDER! I BELIEVE THAT SHE MAY BE REGRETTING WHATEVER SHE TOLD MINERVA! KARINA-ANN GETS OFF THE TABLE AS MINERVA, WHO IS ALMOST STALKING KARINA-ANN! MINERVA THROWS A FOREARM THAT STAGGERS KARINA-ANN, BUT KARINA-ANN THROWS A FOREARM THAT STAGGERS MINERVA! MINERVA THROWS A FOREARM BACK AT KARINA-ANN AS THAT MAKES HER STAGGER BACK, BUT KARINA-ANN THROWS A FOREARM BACK! MINERVA! KARINA-ANN! MINERVA! KARINA-ANN! MINERVA! MINERVA!

(The crowd is heard getting in a frenzy as the camera pans to Kassidy Heart on the top turnbuckle! Kassidy is adjusting herself on the turnbuckle as she has her eyes on Minerva and Karina-Ann as she goes for a …)

Gavin Kirkland: THHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEE HEEEEAAAAAARRRRRRRRTTTT ATTTTAAACCCCCKKKKKKK!! THAT BEAUTIFUL TOP ROPE O-FACE AS SHE MANAGES TO GO FOR THE DOUBLE STUNNER ON KARINA-ANN AND MINERVA! BOTH WOMEN GO FALLING BACK INSTANTLY! KARINA-ANN MANAGES TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING! MEANWHILE, KASSIDY HAS HER SIGHTS ON MINERVA, WHO IS CRAWLING ON ALL FOURS! KASSIDY TAKES A FEW STEPS BACK BEFORE REBOUNDING FROM THE ROPES — PAINFULLY EVER AFTER! ANOTHER CURB STOMP CONNECTS AS MINERVA’S HEAD GOES BOUNCING ON THE MAT! Kassidy races for the cover!

Marti Solo: OOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

CJ Hana: REMI SKYFIRE BREAKS THE HOLD! SHE GETS KASSIDY HEART AND THROWS HER OUT OF THE RING! THE CROWD IS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT WHATSOEVER AS REMI GETS MINERVA BACK TO HER FEET! IT SEEMS LIKE REMI IS MORE THAN DETERMINED TO END THIS MATCH AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! REMI GETS MINERVA ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AS REMI GETS HERSELF ON THAT TOP TURNBUCKLE AS WELL! IT SEEMS LIKE REMI IS GOING TO GO FOR THAT VICTORY STAR DROP! SHE IS GOING TO CONNECT WITH THE EXTERMINATUS! REMI SKYFIRE FROM THE TOP ROPE! EXXXXTTTTTEEEERRRRRMMMMINNNNNNAAAAATTTTUUUUSSSSSS!!

Gavin Kirkland: Minerva goes head first as the table shatters as Minerva and Remi Skyfire find themselves on top of the broken table! It seems like Minerva took most of the damage with that fall! Her head crashed against that table as she lays motionless! Minerva rolls herself out of the ring! Minerva is out of the equation! There is no making a come back from that! Remi, who seem to have taken less of the bump, but is still feeling the impacts of it, manages to find her way back to her feet, but KASSIDY HEART SPRINGS BACK TO LIFE AS SHE JUMPS ON REMI SKYFIRE! IT SEEMS LIKE KASSIDY IS GOING FOR THANK U, NEXT! SHE IS GOING FOR THAT KIMURA LOCK AS REMI IS TRYING TO FIGHT HER WAY OUT OF THE MOVE! KASSIDY TRANSITIONS THE KIMURA LOCK INTO THE FUJIWARA ARMBAR! REMI FINDS HERSELF STUCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! REMI IS TRYING TO REACH FOR THE BOTTOM ROPE AS YOU CAN SEE TEARS STREAMING DOWN KASSIDY’S EYES! KASSIDY WANTS THIS MOMENT! KASSIDY WANTS TO WIN THIS MATCH! REMI IS TRYING TO DO EVERYTHING IN HER POWER TO NOT QUIT! REMI IS NOT A QUITTER! REMI NEVER GIVES UP! KASSIDY BEGINS TO STOMP ON REMI’S HEAD AS SHE CONTINUES TO APPLY THE FUJIWARA ARMBAR! KASSIDY IS STOMPING ON REMI’S HEAD LIKE SHE’S NEVER STOMPED BEFORE! KASSIDY IS NOT LETTING THIS MOMENT PASS HER BY! KASSIDY IS REFUSING TO FACE DEFEAT AGAIN!

CJ Hana: REMI SKYFIRE PASSES OUT! THE STOMPS TO THE HEAD WERE TOO MUCH FOR HER! KASSIDY HEART WINS!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(The crowd nearly explodes in the Dreamstyle Arena as “Put Em Up” plays throughout the arena once again. Kassidy Heart stops stomping on Remi Skyfire’s head as she unapplies the Thank U, Next as she sits back in a seated position with her hands covering her mouth. She is a bloody mess around her face. Her makeup is smeared, but she doesn’t care. There is a ton of emotion waving through the Unified Tag Team Champion. Tears are beginning to stream out of her face. She has been waiting almost a year for this moment. The fans have been waiting for this moment. But, it’s here.)

Maria Del Rey: THE WINNER OF THE 2019 ICONIC CUP … KAASSSSSSSIIIIIIDDDDDDDDDYYYYYYYYY HEEEEAAAAARRRRRRRRRRTTTTTTTT!!

Gavin Kirkland: KASSIDY HEART HAS DONE IT! This Match was truly an Iconic Warfare! Minerva, Remi Skyfire and Karina-Ann poured everything into this match! The four women participating in this match shined and justified their reasons for taking part of this match, but this is Kassidy Heart’s night! This crowd is not complaining about the winner whatsoever! Kassidy’s entire story and fighting spirit in this match had won the crowd over! She proved that she was more than arm candy! She was more than a pretty face! She’s more than a tag team wrestler! She proved that you can put her in the toughest situations and she will still find a way to come out on top!

(A bunch of medical personnel are racing inside the Hell in a Cell to check on Karina-Ann, Minerva and Remi Skyfire! All these women are unconscious. Karina-Ann has broken nose. Minerva probably has some sort of concussion and Remi probably has a slight concussion, but probably not as bad as Minerva.)

CJ Hana: Shoutout to Minerva, Karina-Ann and Remi Skyfire, who put their bodies on the line for the Iconic Cup! These three wanted to win this match so badly, but it was not their night! Kassidy showed a lot of heart! Kassidy showed that she can overcome everything! Wait, look who’s come to show up to the celebration!

(The crowd is seen going a bit antsy as Sienna Jade walks down the ramp. The Women’s World Championship is on her shoulder as she applauds Kassidy Heart on her performance. Sienna walks over near the commentator’s table, where next to it, the Iconic Cup is on its pedestal. Sienna retrieves the Iconic Cup. Sienna makes it inside the ring as the two members of Jaded Heart embrace one another. Kassidy begins to cry again as Sienna holds her tight.)

Sienna Jade (no-mic): I knew that you can do it.

Kassidy Heart (no-mic): I knew that you could do it.

(Sienna Jade hands over the Iconic Cup to Kassidy Heart, who looks at the cup with amazement before raising the cup high in the air. The crowd roars in cheers in approval.)

CJ Hana: Kassidy Heart has the opportunity to cash in that Iconic Cup on her terms! She doesn’t have to wait for a title shot! She doesn’t have to earn it because she earned it with this match! Kassidy has a Women’s World Championship reign in the palm of her hands!

Gavin Kirkland: Watch out, Sienna!

CJ Hana: Let’s not think about that tonight! This is Jaded Hearts night! Most importantly, this is Kassidy Heart’s night! Congratulations to Kassidy Heart! Signing off for Gavin Kirkland, I am CJ Hana! Goodnight from Albuquerque!

(The last shot as of Kassidy Heart raising the Iconic Cup high in the air. The emotion is still on her face as Sienna Jade looks at her best friend and tag team partner with a smile on her face. The crowd still cheering is heard in the background as the camera fades to black.)
