Eve: HELLO EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO SHOWDOWN’S FIRST EXCLUSIVE MARQUEE EVENT OF THE YEAR, UNDER SIEGE! THIS IS A NIGHT THAT HAS BEEN ANTICIPATED FOR WEEKS AND WEEKS AS WE WILL SEE THREE DIFFERENT CHAMPIONSHIPS ON THE LINE AS WRLL AS A NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR A FOURTH CHAMPIONSHIP CROWNED!
Deadprez: Not to mention that we will see some matches sparked off of very personal rivalries that are sure to have major implications for the title scene! Personally I can’t wait to see Chris Elite and TLA go at it in that iron man match! It promises to be a pure classic!
Eve: Agreed! And Terry Chambers will be bound to Cody Marshall as they will face off win a Texas Bullrope match that promises to make even Veena Adams crack a smile!
Deadprez: Well she won’t be happy for long because then the Jaded Hearts will defend the Unified Tag Team Championships against Jake Smith and Joshua Nicholls, The Revolution! These two young men have made their presence felt on both Showdown and Voltage of late and it looks to be a fantastic matchup!
Eve: And speaking of making their presence felt, Drake King has made quite the impact since his debut. And he has earned the right to face the King of Elite, Malcolm Jones, tonight for the Interwire Championship! But that’s not all that’s on the line! As the loser will not be allowed to compete in this year’s Grand Rampage! And Drake King has made it clear that his mission is to prove that he is the true King in this company!
Deadprez: And our main event will see the shocking upstart, Jack Haze, taking on the EAW Champion, Ahren Fournier, in a No Disqualification match! This will surely be a test of wills as both men will go to any lengths to win this one!
Eve: But to get things started we will have a gauntlet match to determine the Number One contender to the New Breed Championship! And Cori Simmons is backstage with the competitors now!
(Camera cuts to backstage where Cori Simmons has been joined by Jax Walker, SOSA Henderson, Damon Diesel, Shane Gates, and Justiciar Eric. Each has a plastic ball in their hand)
Cori Simmons: Welcome everyone! We have an exciting night for you and we’re gonna get things started by revealing the order of tonight’s gauntlet match! First up we will have Shane Gates!
(Shane steps up and hands his ball to Cori. She opens it and reads the slip of paper)
Cori Simmons: Oh! Shane Gates will be entrant number 2!
(Shane looks annoyed and stomps off as Damon Diesel steps up and hands his ball off)
Cori Simmons: Damon Diesel will be entry number 4!
(Damon nods his head with a grin as he moves out of the way for Justiciar Eric)
Cori Simmons: Justiciar Eric will be entry number 3!
SOSA Henderson: *knowing grin* Well I guess that makes things obvious doesn’t it.
(SOSA hands his ball to Cori)
Cori Simmons: Well Hawk did say you were entering first but let’s keep it official.
(Cori opens the ball and looks confused)
Cori Simmons: SOSA Henderson… is entry number 5?!?
SOSA Henderson: Guess he must have meant first in your heart, girl.
(SOSA walks away and Jax steps up confused. Cori opens his ball)
Cori Simmons: Jax Walker will be… entry number 1!!!
(Jax looks pissed as the camera cuts back to the commentary desk)
Eve: There were rumors that SOSA was see near Hurricane Hawk’s office last week… you don’t think he…
Deadprez: You about to accuse a black man who has paid his dues to society and gotten his record cleaned of being a criminal on rumors?
Deadprez: Well then let’s get to it.
(The camera cuts to Gina Romano in the middle of the ring)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest…IS A GAUNTLET MATCH. And it will determine the number one contender for the NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!
(The crowd roars before “Welcome Home” by Coheed and Cambria hits and Jax Walker comes out with a determined face.)
Gina Romano: Entering first, from Berea, Kentucky, weighing in at 265 POUNDS…JAXXXX WALKERRRRRR!!!!!
Deadprez: The odds are stacked against Jax Walker tonight whoevers entering along with him tonight to start the Gauntlet match have a lot to go through.
Eve: I don’t see a hint of doubt on Jax Walker’s face, hes annoyed but he doesn’t see this as a disadvantage, he will bulldoze through anyone to get to that New Breed Title, and that’s a promise.
(Jax Walker climbs to the turnbuckle as “Welcome Home” dies down and gets replaced by “Open Letter” By the Amity Affliction and Shane Gates stubbornly walks to the stage.)
Gina Romano: Next, from Huntington Beach, California, weighing in at 210 pounds…SHANEEEEE GATESSSS!!!!!
Deadprez: This is going to be one hell of a fight, from the looks of it both men look like they’re about to kill eachother.
Eve: No lies in that, both men are capable of ripping limbs out of their socket, who will go down first in this match.
(Shane Gates jumps off the turnbuckle and stares down Jax Walker before the referee pushes him into his corner)
(DING DING DING!)
Deadprez: This match is underway as they lock up, but Jax Walker easily pushes Shane Gates away with the size advantage playing a factor in it.

Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN YOUR WINNER AND NEWWWW NUMBER ONE CONTENDER FOR THE NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP! SOSAAAA HENDERSONNNN!!!!
Deadprez: Well deserved victory for SOSA Henderson he knew how to make his place in the gauntlet match count as he only had to go through Damon Diesel, a very hard challenger, but the determination of SOSA pushed him to the win.
Eve: And to think Dead this is only the first match of Under Siege! There’s much more to come so don’t go away! we’ll be right back!

(Camera opens to see Chris Elite and Big Mike standing with Cori Simmons)
Cori Simmons: Chris, in just a bit you will have your iron man match with TLA. But just last night we also found out that you will be venturing to Ides of March to challenge Darkane in a cross brand exhibition! It’s a rather exciting couple of weeks for you but what’s going through your mind right now?
Chris Elite: One day at a time, baby. Darkane is gonna be a big challenge but I gotta stay focused on tonight until the job is done. TLA has been talking big lately and thinks he’s more than what he is. And I’m about to show him the truth.
Cori Simmons: How do you expect tonight to go for you?
Chris Elite: Honestly, I expect a war. This goes back years between me and TLA. It predates either of us even being in EAW. So all I can really expect is for years worth of aggression to come out tonight.
Big Mike: TLA don’t know what he’s in for. My man Big Bhris gonna show him what it means to be an iron man from Brooklyn.
Chris Elite: Hell Yeah. Hey, Cori. I appreciate the time. But ya boy gotta get going. Got a lot to handle tonight.
Cori Simmons: Thank you for the interview Chris. Good luck tonight.
(Chris and Big Mike walk away as the camera fade)
(Camera re opens to the arena)
Gina Romano: The following contest is a SPECIAL ONE HOUR IRONMAN MATCH….
Gina Romano: The competitor who has the most falls after sixty minutes will be declared the winner!
(‘Ambitionz az a Ridah’ by Tupac starts up as a lowrider comes rolling out from beyond the curtain. With the hood removed, a few of TLA’s hoes are shown standing up and shaking their junk and doing rhythmic gyrations. TLA is shown in the drivers side seat movin’ to the music as the lowrider stops midway at the aisle way. The Oakland crowd cheers loud for TLA as he steps out of the car with EAW Openweight Championship strapped together and sitting on his shoulders and hanging from his head and neck area. TLA continues to move with the beat of the music as he looks to the camera taunting at it with his business associates in the background accompanying him to the ring.)
Gina Romano: Introducing first…He resides at The Poon Palace in Miami, Florida…..He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND TEN POUNDS…..He’s LA PANTERA SEXUAL…..THE CURRENT ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION………TTTTTTTTTTT!!!! LLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! AAAAAAAAAA!!!!
Eve: This is the match I’ve personally been waiting for, DP! This is the kind of match you train long hours for! This kind of match is all about endurance, and the fun part is for an hour we get to see two magnificent athletes in the primes of their careers going at it with pride on the line, and sometimes that’s worth more any achievement or accolade can offer! TLA is the kind of competitor that takes matches like these serious, and has won his share of these types where he’s dubbed the underdog.
Deadprez: I would normally tend to agree with you on that account, Eve, but clearly this is a mismatch in almost every conceivable way possible. In terms of popularity Chris Elite wins out here. When you talk about merchandise sales, Chris Elite wins out. When you talk about in-ring achievements and being an overall big match extraordinaire, not to mention being a former World Heavyweight Champion? You guessed it, Chris Elite gets the nod again! But I do expect TLA to leave nothing on the table tonight, but it’s gonna take a hell of an effort is all I’m saying. I’m just pointing out the obvious advantages, Eve, ones that nobody can deny.
(‘Odee’ by A Boogie begins to replace Ambitionz az a Ridah as Chris Elite flanked with Big Mike by his side. Both appear to be inaudibly on their way to the ring. Chris Elite and Big Mike are shown circling the ring with Big Mike giving follow and pumping Chris up with obvious words of wisdom street style as only Big Mike can, and Chris shown loosening up and bobbing his head.)
Gina Romano: And introducing his opponent….He resides from Brooklyn, New York….He weighs in at TWO HUNDRED AND TEN POUNDS……He’s GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS……CHHHRRRRIIIIISSSSSSS ELLLLLIIIIIITTTTTTEEEEE!!!!
Eve: Underdog or not, DP, Chris Elite still needs to do his part to rise to the occasion just the same as TLA! But Chris Elite has proven time and again that it doesn’t matter how many times you knock him down because he’s proven to be every bit as tough as anyone else you would see step into the ring under these circumstances in this type of match. After all, he wouldn’t have made this match if he didn’t believe he couldn’t win in the first place! This is going to be a match for the ages, DP!
Deadprez: My money on Gawd Given Greatness, enough said!
(Both men stand in the center of the ring as the referee is shown smack down between the two intense competitors reminding them of the rules one last time as both Chris Elite and TLA have their attention locked on the other. The referee then gives the timekeeper the ‘okay’ to ring the bell.)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: You can just feel the electricity in this place, DP! The crowd is ready for this much anticipated match up! This matchup has been brewing for some time, almost aching to happen, and if you tuned into Showdown this past week then you saw it all go down between La Pantera Sexual and Gawd Given Greatness! Chris Elite threw down the challenge that set up this Ironman Match, one that was promptly accepted by the current Openweight Champion, TLA! AN IRONMAN MATCH, DP! I’ve got goosebumps right now in anticipation of this matchup! Both men meet in the center of the ring, and both men already jawing at each other. It’s as if Showdown never ended! Both are now yelling back and forth! And there’s a shove from Chris Elite! And now a slap by Chris Elite, and TLA has had enough! TLA POUNCES AND HE TAKES CHRIS ELITE DOWN TO THE CANVAS! AND NOW TLA WITH THOSE WELL PLACED CLOSED FISTS ONE RIGHT AFTER THE OTHER! CHRIS ELITE TRYING TO COVER UP BUT MANAGES TO STILL POWER TLA OFF OF HIM! BOTH MEN BACK TO THEIR FEET! AXE KICK BY CHRIS ELITE IS DODGED BY THE CURRENT OPENWEIGHT CHAMPION, TLA! AND TLA WITH A SERIES OF PUNCH AND KICK COMBOS AND THEY’RE COMING FAST! CHRIS ELITE BACKING OFF! BUT IT MAKES LITTLE DIFFERENCE BECAUSE HERE COMES TLA! HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN SENDS CHRIS ELITE THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE! Chris Elite looking to recover here as quick as possible! Big Mike urging him on at the sidelines to the left! TLA rebounds off the ropes and comes back! Chris Elite back to a standing vertical base! SUICIDE DIVE BY TLA THAT CONNECTS ON TO CHRIS ELITE THAT SENDS BOTH MEN TO FLOOR NEAR THE RAMP! WOW! AND THE CHAMPION IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW!
Deadprez: The referee already giving count to both men as they lay there! TLA sits up and leans back against the guardrail while Chris Elite rolls over to his front side looking to recover! The crowd is alive, and they are loud! TLA is the first one back to his feet! He now approaches Chris Elite who’s up on his knees! Chris throws a few wild fists to the midsection of TLA that connect but TLA grabs Chris Elite and runs toward the ring apron and tosses Chris Elite into the apron! The back of Chris Elite just took the brunt of that ring apron, and he sure felt that one! Both men in danger of being counted out here in the early going! TLA rolls Chris Elite into the ring and then slides in behind him! TLA goes to grab up Chris Elite to his feet but a drop-toe-hold by Chris Elite! Now Chris plants the leg of TLA on the canvas and buries a knee into the back thigh area of TLA ! He does it again! TLA grimaces in pain, and ANOTHER! And now the former World Heavyweight Champion transitions TLA into a grapevine leg lock, opting to slow the pace of this match down as it was obviously favoring the current Openweight Champion here int he early going! A smart strategy being deployed here by Chris Elite, Eve!
Eve: Indeed, DP! Working to cut a lucha wrestler down to size is easier said than done, however, so we’ll see how long this keeps up! Nearly ten minutes of this match has already elapsed, and knowing they have an hour to kick the snot out of one another I’m sure TLA and Chris Elite will continue to be smart in the way of regulating their energy. TLA now starting to kick at the head of Chris Elite, but Chris Elite just torques back at the leg of TLA still having the leg grapevine locked in which makes TLA grimace even more! TLA starts looking for the ropes now and then starts inching his way using his free leg and his upper body strength to work his way into the ropes! And the referee calling for the break! Chris Elite obliges by letting go! Chris Elite back on his feet and now grabs the same leg TLA was just favoring and turns TLA over and attacks it by stomping on the thigh area of that weakened leg! Now Chris Elite dropping repeated elbows on the thigh area! Big Mike rooting Chris on like a little cheerleader on the outside as TLA grabs at his leg and then for the ropes trying to stand! Chris Elite realizes this and like a tackle in football gets ready to measure his next read on TLA! He’s in his stance as TLA is trying to rise back to his feet with support of those ropes! TLA turns around practically standing on one leg, but here comes Chris Elite anyways a full head of steam and grabs TLA up off his feet and forces him into the corner! Now repeated shoulder thrusts! AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN! Now Chris Elite with the Axe Kick right to the head of TLA that knocks him for a loop! TLA draped on the ropes and now Chris Elite grabs him from behind and delivers a perfectly executed German suplex on TLA! TLA down trying to recover as quickly as his body will physically allow him to. Chris Elite measuring TLA again! HERE COMES CHRIS ELITE ONCE AGAIN! WHO SHOT YA! THE PENALTY KICK! NO! TLA JUST BARELY DODGES THE DEVASTATING PENALTY KICK TO THE HEAD! NOW TLA HAS CHRIS ELITE! TIGER SUPLEX BY TLA TO CHRIS ELITE!! THE REFEREE RIGHT THERE TO MAKE THE COUNT!
Referee: ONE!!!…….TWO!!!……TH-…KICKOUT!!! (47:33)
Deadprez: Chris Elite with the kickout! Both men back to their feet, but TLA with a noticeable limp catches the step up kick from Chris Elite! Elite going for the enzigiri but it’s dodged by TLA! Hurricanrana by TLA to Chris Elite! And now fists of fire by TLA to Chris Elite! Both of these men absolutely despise each other at the moment and will go out of their way to get the comeuppance in this matchup! There’s no titles on the line, just a whole bunch of pride, Eve! Now Chris Elite reverses the momentum and now is on top of TLA and throwing fists right back in the face of La Pantera Sexual and now the referee stepping in an breaking it up, as this is not a street fight in the Oakland but a wrestling match! Both men just glaring at each other with their eyes full of fire as they circle the ring looking for the next opening to find the advantage! Now both men bring their pace to a halt and they’re ready to go again! Collar elbow tie up with TLA gaining the advantage with a side headlock, but Chris Elite quickly shoves TLA to the ropes which TLA rebounds off only for Chris Elite to duck under as TLA leaps over! TLA coming back though as Chris Elite gets back to his feet! Clothesline attempt by Chris Elite is anticipated well by TLA who dodges it! BOX OFFICE MATCH! THE SUPERKICK BY CHRIS ELITE! BUT TLA SMARTLY HANGS ON TO THE ROPES TO AVOID IT! WOW! SO CLOSE, EVE! TLA rubbing his hand over his right brow in an almost playful manner as if to say “phew, close one” and Chris Elite all he can do is shake his head allowing a smirk to come over his face as they both circle the ring again!
Eve: We’re approaching seventeen minutes into this match so far and both competitors still going strong! Both men move in on the other once again, and it’s Elite that puts his hand up high looking for TLA to do the same in a possible test of strength and TLA raises his hand, and now both competitors lock up in a test of strength! Chris Elite looks like he’s got the early advantage as forces TLA back toward the ropes, but TLA using strength of his own to battle back as he backs Chris Elite up and toward the center of the ring again! Chris Elite shaking his head in disbelief as he’s being overpowered! Now TLA twists the arms of Chris Elite causing him to drop to his knees as he yells out in pain! You can see TLA gaining momentum and more confidence the more time passes in this matchup, and not that Chris Elite has slowed down by any means! But he better figure things out real quick before he starts losing control of this matchup! TLA has shown us many times in the past that he can turn the tides of any matchup, and this could very well be added to the list!
Deadprez: Pish posh, Eve! Chris Elite has this matchup right where he wants it to be! If you saw his run last year as World Heavyweight Champion, his matches against Mr. DEDEDE, JAMIE O’HARA, IMPACT, BIG NAMES EVE! TLA is simply not in that class of wrestler, and when it’s said and done he’ll prove that to you and everyone else that doubts the man! And now both men slugging it out back and forth! Chris Elite still from the down position on his knees and TLA standing at a vertical base! CARTEL KICK! THE PELE KICK DOWNS CHRIS ELITE WHO FALLS INTO THE ROPES! TLA REBOUNDS OFF THE ROPES OPPOSITE AND COMES BACK AT CHRIS ELITE! 305!!! THE TIGER FEINT KICK! TLA NOW RUNS UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! CHRIS ELITE STUMBLING BACK UP TO A STANDING POSITION! BURNOUT! CORKSCREW 360 SENTON! NO! CHRIS ELITE AVOIDS THE CONTACT AND TLA LANDS AWKWARDLY AND IS HOLDING HIS BACK! CHRIS ELITE HAS TLA UP ON HIS SHOULDERS! FACE VALUE! THE FIREMANS CARRY/OVERHEAD KICK COMBO AND TLA IS DOWN! IT’S NOW CHRIS ELITE THAT’S CLIMBING TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! THE CROWD ON IT’S FEET IN ANTICIPATION! YOU GOTTA LOVE IT! THE 630 SENTON CONNECTS ON TO TLA! CHRIS ELITE WITH THE COVER!! THE REFEREE SLIDES DOWN QUICK FOR THE COUNT!
Referee: ONE!!!!…….TWO!!!!…….THREE!!!! (39:17)
Gina Romano: The fall of this Ironman match has been awarded to….CHRIS ELITE!!!
(The crowd cheering loudly for Chris Elite, but there are some disappointed TLA fans that can be heard making their opinion be known in between.)
Eve: Both men laid out right now on the canvas! Big Mike celebrating on the outside. Chris Elite has taken the first pinfall in this Ironman matchup, and just when we thought the momentum was clearly in TLA’s favor Chris Elite practically comes out of nowhere and manages to take the first fall! Amazing turn of events to say the least, DP! But now the pressure is clearly on TLA to even things up and it’s Chris Elite that has a lead to manage, and perhaps build on! Both men rolling over to their front side still on the canvas! Chris Elite looks on toward Big Mike cheering him on telling him “You got dis man!” and Chris nods his head with a satisfied expression his face! While just inches away TLA slaps the canvas clearly frustrated feeling as though he just allowed that fall to get away! TLA’s associates on the outside are shouting encouragement to their number one papi! TLA and Chris Elite are slowly making their way back to their feet with aid from the ropes! Now both men finally have the other’s attention, realizing what the score is! Chris Elite taunts TLA letting him know by pointing to the scoreboard off to the left just below the Skybox, which of course TLA is doing his best to keep his emotions in check.
TLA: Chill ese, this ain’t over yet.
Chris: Iss bout ta-be when I put yo ass down again!
Deadprez: Both men going at each even verbally, I love it! Both men showing how much pride they have and how much a match like this means! They’re closing in on the other getting ready to tie up again! And another collar and elbow tie up and it’s Chris Elite that transitions into a side headlock, but now he transitions into an arm wrench! But TLA quickly reverses the momentum by twisting the arm of Chris Elite and putting the pressure on the self-proclaimed elitist of the year! Chris though rolls through and delivers an arm drag that takes TLA down the canvas but TLA back to his feet! Step up enzigiri by Chris Elite that sends TLA stumbling into the ropes and bounces off right into the grasp of Chris Elite! ROLLING THUNDER DDT BY CHRIS ELITE! STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS BY CHRIS ELITE AND THE COVER! THE REFEREE RIGHT THERE AGAIN IN PERFECT POSITION!
Referee: ONE!!!!……TWO!!!!……THR-…KICKOUT!!! (34:03)
Eve: And TLA kicks out! A near fall, so close! On the outside Big Mike can’t believe it! Chris Elite slaps the mat in a bit of frustration! You can tell he really wanted that second fall right then and there! Now Chris Elite showing a little frustration as he now sits up and grabs TLA by the head and begins wailing away at the face of TLA for a moment or so before rising back up to his feet! Chris walks to the ropes and looks out at the crowd talking himself up which gets the crowd to react with a mixed reaction! TLA trying to recover as Chris Elite continues to talk! He doesn’t see TLA recovering! Big Mike trying to get Chris Elite’s attention, but the crowd is so loud he doesn’t even hear or notice! TLA steps outside on the apron and climbs up to the top turnbuckle! But Chris Elite takes notice finally and now rushes over to stop this! NO! TOPE ROPE HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN SENDS CHRIS ELITE THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE! Chris Elite getting back to his feet, and A BASEBALL SLIDE CONNECTS BY TLA TO CHRIS ELITE SENDING CHRIS FLYING RIGHT ONTO OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! We better get out of dodge here, DP! TLA CLIMBING UP TOP AGAIN ONTO THAT TURNBUCKLE! I have a bad feeling about this! OH MY GOD!
Deadprez: OH MY GOD IS RIGHT, EVE! WHAT IS TLA-HOLY SH-…..CHRIS ELITE IS UP! HE RUNS UP THE STEEL STEPS TO MEET TLA NOW! BOTH MEN ARE SLUGGING IT OUT! TLA IS STILL ON THE TOP TURNBUCKLE WHILE CHRIS ELITE IS TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS SITUATION! CHRIS ELITE IS CLIMBING UP NOW TO MEET TLA! BOTH MEN STILL SLUGGING IT OUT BACK AND FORTH! WHO’S GOING TO TAKE THE FALL OF THEIR LIFE!!?? IT’S A RISK EITHER WHICH WAY! THIS IS CRAZY! NOW TLA APPEARS TO HAVE A GOOD GRIPS ON THE TIGHTS OF CHRIS ELITE! HE’S GOT HIM! TLA JUST DRAPED THE ARM OF CHRIS ELITE OVER HIS HEAD! AND A SUPERPLEX DELIVERED BY TLA TO CHRIS ELITE! AND CHRIS LANDS HARD ON THE CANVAS! BOTH MEN LAID OUT AGAIN! THIS IS MATCH IS INCREDIBLE SO FAR! And TLA is the first one to sit up! TLA nods his head, you can see the confidence oozing off this man! But he’s still in a one-nil whole at the moment, until he finds a way to put Chris Elite down that is! Now TLA back to his feet as Chris Elite to his knees! Now TLA grabs up Chris Elite and whips him to the ropes! But Chris Elite reverses the whip and sends TLA to the ropes instead! VERY MEXICAN UPPERCUT BY TLA THAT SENDS CHRIS ELITE REELING BACKWARDS INTO THE ROPES! BUT CHRIS ELITE COMES BACK WITH THE 44 BULLDOG! THE SHOTGUN DROPKICK CONNECTS AND SENDS TLA FLYING BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! THE FANS NOW GET LOUD AS CHRIS ELITE REMOVES HIS ELBOW PAD! THIS IS WHAT THEY’VE BEEN WAITING FOR! CHRIS ELITE RUNS TO ONE SIDE OF THE RING TO THE NEXT! GYRATIONS AND ALL FOLLOWED BY THE PEOPLE’S MOONSAULT! SHADES OF MR. DEDEDE! I LOVE IT! AND THE COVER!
Referee: ONE!!!…..TWO!!!!…..THRE-…KICKOUT!!! (27:56)
Eve: Not quite, DP! TLA showing a lot of heart here! It may be one-up for Chris Elite, but the people are so divided right now! Some are wanting Chris to essentially put the nail in the coffin and get another pinfall, while the rest really want TLA to find a way to get this thing evened up! The sounds of hands slapping the outside ring apron can be heard as Big Mike can be see urging Chris Elite to get back up while TLAs associates are providing similar support for TLA! Both men are willing themselves up now! Both men trading rights for a moment! Now fast striking combos of kicks and punches, completely over taking the offense and sending Chris Elite reeling back, trying to cover up! Hurricanrana! NO! Sitout powerbomb by Chris Elite! But TLA grabs the ropes! Chris Elite trying to yank TLA from ropes to no avail! Wait a minute! Dragonrana by TLA into a reverse pin!
Referee: ONE!!!!……TWO!!!!…….THREE-… KICKOUT!!!!! (26:41)
Deadprez: And this is how big match Bhris became a thing! And don’t you dare interrupt me, Eve, it’s DPs turn to talk! Chris Elite showing exactly why he’s indeed Elite! TLA has put everything in to come up with a fall and after nearly thirty five minutes of this match TLA has yet to be able to put Chris Elite down! Forearms now from TLA!

Referee: ONE!!!!……TWO!!!!…..THRE-….KICKOUT!!!!! (25:44)
Eve: SO CLOSE! CHRIS ELITE KICKS OUT AGAIN!!! This crowd is going nuts right now! TLA slaps the canvas again in complete disgust! TLA rolls out of the ring still in complete disgust placing his hands on his head pacing, shouting expletives while in the ring Chris Elite is trying to recover! TLA is waving off the aid of his associates as he steps back up on the apron as Chris Elite is getting back up! TLA and Chris Elite stare at each other from a distance, and Chris Elite gesturing with his hand out front for TLA to bring it! Both men taunting the other as TLA steps back into the ring!

GROUNDED SIDE HEADLOCK BY CHRIS ELITE! TLA STRUGGLING TRYING TO SQUIRM HIS WAY OUT! CHRIS ELITE HAS PLAYED THINGS SMART ON THIS EXCHANGE ONCE AGAIN KEEPING TLAs NORMAL AGILITY UNDER WRAPS TO PREVENT A BIG MOMENTUM SWING! There’s a reason why Chris Elite was able to become World Heavyweight Champion, shocking the world last year, and he’s sure showing it right now! TLA is trying to turn over but the weight of Chris Elite is too much to bring over, but Chris Elite instead brings TLA back up wrenching the headlock even tighter! TLA shoves Chris Elite to the ropes! Chris Elite comes back with a shoulder tackle that sends TLA down to the canvas! Chris Elite goes TLA but TLA kicks Chris Elite away!

Deadprez: Both men collar and elbow tie up again, and this time Chris Elite looks for the body slam but TLA slips away and lands on his feet behind Chris Eltie! Chris Elite looks for the clothesline that’s ducked by TLA! TIGER SUPLEX BY TLA TO CHRIS ELITE! CHRIS ELITE SLIPS AWAY AND LANDS ON HIS FEET LONG KISS GOODNIGHT!

The referee his been on point all night with the count! And here we go again!
Referee: ONE!!!!……TWO!!!!……KICKOUT!!!! (19:28)
Deadprez: TLA kicks out again! Unbelievable! Even I’m impressed now! So many twists and turns in the momentum during this one on one matchup, Eve! But Chris Elite still has the lead, and pretty soon he can stall, he can start to slow things down! All this extra pressure has to be building up as time is winding down, and right now the time and scoreboard favor Chris Elite! Both men slowly rising back to their feet with support of the ropes! TLA is the first stand under his own power as approaches Chris Elite and now sends a forearm to the lower back of Chris Elite! Now TLA with repeated forearms to the face of Chris Elite as he backs him into the corner! BUT NOW CHRIS ELITE FIRES BACK WITH REPEATED FOREARMS OF HIS OWN WHICH STAGGERS TLA!

MEXICAN DESTROYER! REVERSE PACKAGE PILEDRIVER CONNECTS!! TLA FALLS TO THE CANVAS JUST BARELY DRAPING AN ARM ON CHRIS ELITE!! THE AS HE’S BEEN ALL MATCH RIGHT THERE! WOW!
Referee: ONE!!!!…….TWO!!!!…….THREE!!!! (16:54)
Gina Romano: The second fall of this Ironman Match has been awarded to……TTTTT!!!! LLLLLLL!!!! AAAAAA!!!!
(The Oakland crowd can be heard celebrating loudly, and the fevered pitch eliciting from the crowd this time around can be heard even louder than they were after the first fall.)
Eve: And we’re now evened up! It’s one-all with just over sixteen minutes left and the clock is ticking! Both men are down at the moment, trying to regather themselves. trying to muster the energy that they need to continue! This match is now anyone’s game, winner takes all! Both men struggling to will themselves up, but they’re doing it! Both men looking lock up, and a high knee by TLA! TLA looking to keep the momentum! TLA backing Chris Elite into the ropes! More forearms by TLA to the face of Chris Elite who’s still tired and looking shaky now as TLA continues, he’s found another level! Chris Elite falls down from exhaustion!

Chris Elite is grabbed up from the ground! TLA with a Tiger Suplex in the aisle way and now Chris Elite holding his lower back! The referee finally gets to eight, but with the way things are going I don’t think a double count out is going to be popular with this crowd here in Oakland! The referee finally stops his count and slides out of the ring as well! He approaches both men!
Referee: Come on TLA!….Chris! Get it back in the ring!
Deadprez: Both slowly making their way back up using the other to pick themselves up! Both men slugging it out some more, however, they’re going in the wrong direction! They’re duking it out heading more toward the equipment area to the right, we can’t even see them anymore! It’s just a good thing for technology, having these monitors like we do! We’re not missing a moment of the action! The referee doesn’t like it, but he’s doing everything he can to try and get both of these men to listen to reason! Chris Elite reverses the whip attempt by TLA and sends TLA into the electric equipment nearby but the momentum of the reversal whip was not enough to brushing anything over! We certainly don’t need anyone getting electrocuted! BOX.OFFICE.SMASH!!! THE SUPERKICK BY CHRIS ELITE…..OH MY! TLA DUCKED AND CHRIS ELITE JUST TOOK OUT THE REFEREE!!! HE WAS THE BEST REFEREE WE HAD ALL NIGHT!! AND NOW HE’S BEEN TAKEN OUT!!! TLA taking advantage of the miscue by Chris Elite as he throws a right at Chris Elite! Chris throws one right back but it’s Chris Elite that’s backpedaling right now, and he’s heading toward the steel gated guardrail where the sea of humanity is at! Both men continue trading blows with each other! Clothesline by TLA to Chris Elite right over the guardrail and into the crowd! TLA steps on over the guardrail to give close follow! Chris Elite though finally retaliates with kick to the midsection of TLA! Now a high knee by Chris Elite which causes TLA to keel over! Now Chris Elite is back in control as he leads TLA back toward the ring through the crowd! Chris Elite with a headbutt! WOW! TLA staggering through the crowd! This Oakland crowd is extra loud and boisterous right now, Eve!
Eve: You said it, DP! They’re being treated to a such a great back and forth battle, can you really blame them? We’ve now reached just under ten minutes remaining with both men at a fall a piece here! The crowd eagerly anticipating the ending to this match, but who will it be that gets that final fall before the buzzer!!?? CHRIS ELITE WITH CLOTHESLINE THIS TIME OF TLA BUT HIS MOMENTUM TAKES HIM OVER THE BARRICADE AS WELL BACK AT RINGSIDE! Both men trying to crawl away but doing so in opposite directions! TLA toward the ringsteps where he rests a moment! Chris Elite trying to pull himself up from the ring apron but falls back to the floor, still trying to regather some his energy here! Both men obviously exhausted at this point! You can tell that after almost an hour they’re about completely spent! Both men now starting to make their way into the ring crawling under the bottom rope! Chris Elite slides in first and sits up in the corner using the turnbuckle for support to stay in that sitting position as TLA looks on all fours looking to pull himself up using the ropes!
(Camera soon hones in on the entrance area as we see officials and other staff members over at the equipment area tending to the unconscious referee. Soon another official is directed toward the ring, and promptly runs down the aisle and slides underneath the bottom rope.)
Deadprez: And we now have a new official in the match! We’re just over eight minutes left, but time is quickly dwindling in this match with neither man able to secure that second fall that’s needed to win this match! Now it’s Chris Elite rising up to a standing vertical base with aid of the ropes, as he remains in the corner assessing the situation, realizing the time and scoreboard! This is clutch time, Eve! This is where Chris Elite has a chance to further etch his name into the books! This is the perfect opportunity to take advantage, and he’s doing just that as he comes right at TLA! MANDIBLE CLAW!!! TLA WITH THE MANDIBLE CLAW OUT OF NOWHERE!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!! CHRIS ELITE TRYING PRY TLA’s CLAW OFF! BOTH MEN FALL TO THE CANVAS AND CHRIS ELITE VALIANTLY INCHES QUICKLY TO THE ROPES! HE REACHES OUT FOR THE ROPES, AND HE’S GOT THE BOTTOM ONE! THE REFEREE WARNS TLA WHO STILL HAS IT ON!
Referee: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FI-ALRIGHT BREAK IT! BREAK IT! TLA, BREAK IT!
(The referee pulls TLA off of Chris Elite. TLA shoves the referee away as he falls back from exhaustion.)
Eve: Folks we’re quickly approaching six minutes remaining in this match, and both me are so desperate right now! Each competitor doesn’t want to give an inch! This crowd eating it up completely right now! You can hear the crowd is divided! Half cheering TLA on, and the other half cheering on Chris Elite! TLA still clinging to the ropes, and here comes TLA putting the boots to Chris Elite! Big Mike right there yelling up at TLA, but TLA could care less! Time is running short and TLA realizes it! Now Chris Elite retaliates with rights to the face of TLA! TLA right back the same! Now Chris Elite takes another shot! Now TLA! ELITE! TLA! ELITE! TLA! ELITE! TLA! TLA AGAIN! AND AGAIN! TLA WHIPS CHRIS ELITE WHO REVERSES THE WHIP AND SENDS TLA TO THE ROPES! AND A BACK ELBOW BY CHRIS ELITE THAT MISSES IT’S MARK AS TLA DUCKS THE MANEUVER! ZIG ZAG BY TLA!! THE COVER BY TLA!!!
Referee: ONE!!!!…..TWO!!!!…..THR-KICKOUT!!!! (5:01)
Deadprez: CHRIS ELITE LIVES ON!! GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS, EVE! GAWD GIVEN GREATNESS! NOTHING ELSE YOU CAN SAY! TLA HAS DONE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO PUT THIS MAN DOWN MORE TIMES THAN WE CAN COUNT AND HE’S ONLY GOTTEN ONE FALL OFF THE MAN! IT’S CHRIS ELITE’S DESTINY TO WIN! Both men lay on the canvas, but now Chris Elite starting to stir! TLA still laying on his back, oh-now he’s starting to stir! TLA is rolling to a sitting position as Chris Elite is inching toward the corner turnbuckle! TLA trying to stand under his own power, he’s at center ring as Chris Elite is now climbing the turnbuckles toward the top! TLA is up on his feet again! Chris Elite up top now! TOP ROPE MOONSAULT BY CHRIS ELITE ONTO TLA! THE COVER BY CHRIS ELITE!
Referee: ONE!!!!…..TWO!!!!…..THREE!-KICKOUT!!!! (3:37)
Eve: SO CLOSE!!! But Chris Elite can’t get discouraged here! He’s gotta keep going, the clock is ticking and both men slowly rising back back to their feet, stumbling as they do! Chris Elite strikes first as he grabs TLA and puts him back down with a backbreaker! Chris Elite grabs TLA back up and then whips TLA to the corner turnbuckle! Chris Elite on the follow up but TLA anticipates the incoming Chris Elite and uses the aid of the ropes hop over and Chris crashes into the corner turnbuckle! Chris Elite stumbles out of the corner holding his chest area as TLA follows up with another whip to the ropes! CARTEL KICK! THE PELE KICK CONNECTS AND CHRIS ELITE FALLS TO HIS KNEES IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION NOW DRAPED ON THE SECOND ROPE! HERE COMES TLA! 305!!! TIGER FEINT KICK SENDS CHRIS ELITE FLYING BACK ONTO HIS BACK! We’re about to hit the two minute mark of this match and both men still even at one fall each! The crowd on their feet as TLA is hanging on to the top rope trying to stay on his feet! Breathing heavily TLA is on the outside looking to go up top on the turnbuckle! Chris Elite is down! TLA is almost there! These Oakland fans are going crazy right now! I mean they’re going absolutely nuts! TLA MAY GOING FOR IT! HE LOOKS LIKE HE’S SIGNALLING FOR HIS FINISHER, BURNOUT! TLA’S GOT HIS ASSOCIATES! HE’S GOT THE CROWD GOING WILD!! WAIT A MINUTE! OH MY GOD! CHRIS ELITE IS UP! A BURST OF ENERGY AS CHRIS ELITE SPRINGS UP AND RUNS UP TO THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE AND GRABS TLA! TOPE ROPE AVALANCHE BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX OFF THE TOP TURNBUCKLE! OH MY GOD! BOTH MEN LAID NOW IN THE CENTER OF THE RING!! THE CROWD APPLAUDING THIS EFFORT!
Deadprez: EVERYONE THEIR FEET, EVE! NOBODY IS SITTING RIGHT NOW! WE’RE UNDER A MINUTE LEFT! BOTH MEN SLOWLY GETTING BACK TO THEIR FEET AGAIN! HOW ARE THEY EVEN DOING IT RIGHT NOW! I CAN HARDLY HEAR MYSELF ANYMORE! WE’VE GOT UNDER FIFTY SECONDS LEFT NOW! BOTH MEN TRADING BLOWS BACK AND FORTH AGAIN! TLA WHIPS CHRIS ELITE BUT CHRIS ELITE REVERSES THE WHIP AND SENDS TLA TO THE ROPES! DROPKICK BY CHRIS ELITE! NO!!! TLA HANGS ON TO THE ROPES! CHRIS ELITE HURRYING BACK TO HIS FEET! CARTEL KICK AGAIN BY TLA SENDS CHRIS ELITE REELING BACKWARDS INTO THE ROPES! BUT CHRIS ELITE COMES BACK LOOKING FOR THE BOX OFFICE SMASH! THE SUPERKICK! NO!!! TLA CATCHES IT!!!!…….TLA! TLA! OH MY GOD! HE SPINS CHRIS ELITE AROUND! CROSSED PATHS! THE CROSS ARMBREAKER BY TLA TO CHRIS ELITE!! CHRIS ELITE HAS NOWHERE TO GO! HE’S TRAPPED RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE RING! TLA’S GOT HIM! HE’S WRENCHING BACK! WE’RE UNDER THIRTY SECONDS NOW!! TLA WRENCHING BACK! THE REFEREE CHECKING WITH CHRIS ELITE! ELITE WRITHING IN PAIN AS EACH SECOND TICKS AWAY! WE’RE AT TWELVE SECONDS!!! CHRIS ELITE WILL NOT QUIT!! TLA WRENCHING BACK ON THAT ARM EVEN MORE!! FIVE SECONDS LEFT!! CHRIS ELITE LOOKING LIKE HE’S GOING TO TAP!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(The sound of a buzzer goes off almost simultaneously as the bell rings as Chris Elite is shown tapping just after he hears it to force the release.)
Eve: CHRIS ELITE IS TAPPING, BUT I THINK HE’S BEEN SAVED BY THE BELL!!! HE HELD ON JUST LONG ENOUGH TO GET THROUGH! THIS MATCH HAS MET IT’S END! BUT WE’VE GOT NO WINNER! TLA he’s actually celebrating on his back with his arms outstretched above his head with his fists balled up! I think TLA believes he’s won the match, DP! I don’t think he realizes how close it actually was! The referee checking with Chris Elite who’s grabbing at his arm in complete agony from having withstood the pain of the Crossed Paths of TLA! That cross armbreaker submission maneuver! TLA’s associates are cheering him on from the outside, and I think even some of these fans who are chanting his name believes he’s won it!
(A replay in regular motion shows both men in their respective positions that they were just moments ago, and the referee continuously checking with Chris Elite to see if he wanted to quit only for Chris to refuse each time until the last seconds, which bell is heard sounding once again just as Chris Elite begins tapping right after. The shot then goes back live.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen..The sixty minute time limit has expired! Both Chris Elite and TLA have scored one fall each, therefore this match has resulted in a DRAW!!!
Crowd: (Loud mixed cheers and some disappointment can be heard)
Deadprez: TLA waving his arm in disgust here, clearly not agreeing with that ruling! We just got a glimpse of the replay of those fateful final seconds! But that replay was enough evidence, Chris Elite didn’t quit until the time was up! There’s another official jogging down the aisle way toward the ring now, probably to help Chris Elite to the back, or TLA! Who knows at this point! What we do know is both men and these fans get to walk away a winner, and there’s nobody in the building that’s sitting at this moment!
(The referee makes his way over to ringside where the timekeeper sits and the ring announcer, Gina Romano stand. The referee first touches base with the timekeeper and says something to him that’s not picked up clearly. TLA is sitting in the left corner that faces the aisle way exhausted as his associates are wiping him down with white cloth as Big Mike is in the ring kneeling down where Chris Elite is, checking on him as he favors his arm and shoulder area. TLA starts to roll out of the ring, and just then the referee that ran out moments ago is shown talking to both Gina Romano and the time keeper at this time. All three appear to be concurring on the news that was just broke to them. Now the referee leaves the booth and goes over to the official in the ring that was ducking his head through the ropes trying to listen in, this as Gina Romano places the mic to her mouth to speak.)
Gina Romano: Ladies and Gentlemen…I’ve just been informed. Both Chris Elite and TLA have wrestled for sixty minutes, with each man accumulating one fall in the match!…….HOWEVER!!…..
Crowd: (The crowd starts to get really loud again in anticipation of the next announcement.)
Gina Romano: By order of General Manager, Hurricane Hawk, this match will continue…….UNDER SUDDEN DEATH RULES!
(After hearing this announcement the crowd comes completely unglued. TLA falls down to his knees shaking his head in disbelief as Chris Elite is still being consoled by Big Mike. The official in the ring, now completely aware of what’s happening being on the same page with the other official is now telling Big Mike he must leave the ring. Chris Elite starts waving Big Mike off. Big Mike is shown leaving the ring.)
Gina Romano: The first man to be awarded the final pinfall will be declared THE WINNER!!!
Eve: What an announcement! General Manager, Hurricane Hawk, was clearly watching from the back, and he’s giving these fans an absolute treat right now! Another match back to back! Chris Elite and TLA ONE. MORE. TIME!! MY GOD, I CAN’T WAIT!! TLA clearly in a bit of disbelief as he limps back toward the ring, where he’s now climbing up on the apron with support of the ropes! Chris Elite holding arm still. That arm looks in really bad shape, DP!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Deadprez: And there we have it, folks at home! The bell has rang and match two has begun, and we must have a winner! Hurricane Hawk made the ruling from the back and clearly while this sits well with the fans, for the competitors this is everything they dream about growing up, sure. But obviously they’re not thinking about that at this moment, as both are definitely bruised and banged up! But here they go! TLA coming at Chris Elite again, but this time more cautiously as it’s obvious Chris is favoring that arm that TLA wrenched the hell out of earlier trying to submit Chris Elite! Chris Elite, ever the resourceful one, gets a shot in on the incoming TLA who was trying to catch Chris Elite by surprise! Elite caught TLA right in the face! Running clothesline by Chris Elite with his good arm takes TLA down to the canvas! Chris stopping to catch his breath as TLA is already starting to recover! TLA coming at Chris Elite again! Chris Elite looking for another clothesline, but walks right into a drop toe hold by TLA! TLA quickly takes advantage and transitions right into the lasso from ‘AR 15’! THE TEXAS CLOVERLEAF BEING APPLIED ON CHRIS ELITE! TLA HAS HIM AGAIN! WILL CHRIS ELITE SUBMIT!!??? TLA TRYING SITDOWN TO APPLY EVEN MORE PRESSURE! BUT YES!!! CHRIS ELITE USING HIS ARM STRENGTH IS ABLE TO FLIP AND REVERSE THE ‘AR 15’! WHAT A COUNTER! BUT TLA FOUND HIS OWN COUNTER! HE’S GOT CHRIS ELITE’S SHOULDERS ON THE CANVAS! The referee hurries to drop down and make the count!
Eve: AND CHRIS ELITE KICKS OUT AGAIN!! BOTH MEN BACK UP! BULLDOG BY TLA THAT DRILLS CHRIS ELITE RIGHT INTO THE CANVAS!! TLA LOOKING FOR THE MANDIBLE CLAW AGAIN!! NO!!! CHRIS ELITE COUNTERS WITH A REVERSE CRADLE PINFALL ATTEMPT!! BUT TLA KICKS OUT OF IT BEFORE THE REFEREE COULD REACT!! BOTH MEN BACK UP AGAIN! CHRIS ELITE RUNS READY TO ATTACK TLA AGAIN BUT TLA WITH A POWERSLAM OF CHRIS ELITE SENDING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE CANVAS! RUNNING SHOOTING STAR PRESS BY TLA!! NO!!! TLA MISSES! CHRIS ELITE ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY IN JUST NICK OF TIME! TLA BACK UP HOLDING HIS CHEST AS HE TURNS AROUND!! BOX. OFFICE. SMASH!!!! HE GOT IT!!! HE GOT IT!! TLA ATE ALL OF THAT!!! CHRIS ELITE FALLS ON TLA AND HOOKS BOTH LEGS!!!
(DING! DING! DING!)
(”Odee” by A Boogie starts back up, as Chris Elite is laid out on the canvas on his back breaking heavy, showing complete exhaustion as Big Mike enters the ring celebrating as he sits Chris Elite up inside the squared circle as the associates of TLA are checking on him trying to console him at this moment.)
Gina Romano: The winner of this match by a count of two falls to one…….CHHHHRRRRIIIIIISSSSSS!!!! ELLLLIIIITTTTEEEE!!!!
Eve: What a match we just saw, DP! This is one that show up on wrestling classics some, DP! We saw two fierce and fiery competitors going at it to no end, not until now that is! It took sixty minutes, and then some to decide this affair! Both TLA and Chris Elite put their respective reputations on the line in this matchup, and left nothing on the table, giving us their heart, body, and soul in this one hour plus matinee!
Deadprez: Agreed, Eve! We saw a little bit of everything, and these great fans of Oakland got rewarded for every moment they got to witness of this one on one battle! The ultimate competition of ‘can you top this’, and neither man disappointed! This bout literally could have went either way! Congrats to the winner, Chris Elite! Well deserved!
(Chris Elite is shown being helped out of the ring by Big Mike as the fans applaud nonstop clearly showing how impressed they were with the wealth of athleticism that was at the helm for an hour plus. TLA is shown being helped by his associates one last time in the ring before the camera goes elsewhere.)
(Commercial for lard, featuring the beautiful body of Xander Payne)
(Camera opens to see Hurricane Hawk sitting backstage.)
???: Great show you’ve got tonight.
(Hawk looks up to see Leo Quinn with a shoulder sling)
Hurricane Hawk: Yeah. Everything’s going well. Too well.
Leo Quinn: Hawk, we don’t have any leads on this whole thing. You don’t know what’s going to happen. Nothing may even happen. In two months you had three attacks. Who even knows what it all was.
Hurricane Hawk: So you’re saying I shouldn’t be concerned?
Leo Quinn: No. I was a cop for years. You should be worried about this. But letting it drive you insane won’t help either. You accused the Revolution of everything and I thought they were prime suspects. But then it happened again and they weren’t even at the arena. So back to square one. You can’t let the mounting frustration cloud your judgement. Keep a clear head. That’s all I’m saying.
Hurricane Hawk: Yeah. All right. Fair enough. I need some coffee though. Damn. How’s the arm, by the way?
Leo Quinn: I’m managing. Nothing that won’t heal. But you’ll forgive me if I’m not too keen to get back out on the road with the show for a while.
Hurricane Hawk: *laughing* yeah. I guess I can’t blame you for that one.
(Camera fades as the two continue talking)
(Camera transitions to Gina Romano in the ring)
Gina Romano: The following contest is scheduled for one fall, and it is for the EAW Unified Tag Team championships! … Introducing first,
( “Give ‘em Hell, Kid” by My Chemical Romance is the first song to hit the P.A. system. The ‘tron comes to live with the two words “The Revolution”.)
Gina Romano: At a combined weight of Four Hundred and Thirty Pounds .. they are Joshua Nicholls and Jakes Smith, they are .. The Revolution!
Deadprez: My pick! Jake Smith and Joshua Nicholls representing THE only brand that matters, Showdown. I think the Revolution has what it takes to score the biggest win of their careers tonight. They’re a solid all-round team, and they have over two-hundred and fifty pounds on the champions.
Eve: Yes, and if they do pick up a win – some will consider it a huge upset. The Jaded Hearts have crafted a legacy in this company, and I don’t think they’re going to slow down anytime soon. So to say that Jake and Joshua have an uphill battle – is an understatement.
Deadprez: Uphill battle? You’re doubting the Showdown kings, the leaders of the Revolution in EAW?
Eve: No, but I’m not immediately putting them over the champions who have worked hard to get where they are, and to wear all of the gold that they wear.
(By now Jake Smith and Joshua Nicholls have emerged onto the stage, and stirred up the crowd into a booing frenzy. After making their way to the ring, they lap around it before entering and waiting in their corner. Their music fades out, only to be replaced by CFO$’s “True Love”.)
Gina Romano: And their opponents, .. the EAW Women’s World Champion – the EAW Vixen’s Champion — collectively, they are the EAW Unified Tag Team champions — Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade, the Jaded Hearts!
Eve: Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade have just passed the year mark of forming this team in Revolt. And in that year they have won the Empire Tag Team championships, the EAW Grand Prix tournament, Tag Team of the Year for 2018, are two-thirds of the 2018 Stable of the Year – and are now the Unified Tag Team champions. They have done everything a tag team could possibly do, and now they are only further cementing their legacy in the company.
Deadprez: They have achieved a lot, more than most of the people on the roster may have expected. But Eve, they are not the Revolution. They may be the tag champs right now, but Jake Smith and Joshua Nicholls are a legitimate threat and need to be treated as such.
Eve: No one’s counting them out, DP. They, just like any other team, can win the titles – all it takes is three seconds. I just feel like they should be treating the champions with a little more respect.
(Jake and Joshua watch as Kassidy and Sienna walk out onto the stage, completely adorned in gold. Their singles championships wrapped around their waists, and the tag titles held proudly over their shoulders. They walk side by side, each holding a side of the Tag Team of the Year award. Joshua and Jake trading comments, but both look at the Hearts in disgust – watching as Kassidy and Sienna gently place their trophy down on a showcase pillow on a stand next to the ring. Followed by removing their singles titles and placing them next to the trophy. Climbing into the ring, they showcase the tag titles proudly as they pose on the ropes and turnbuckle respectively. Jake and Joshua both wait until they climb down, but then attack!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: Well, the referee’s called for the bell because Smith and Nicholls have attacked the champions from behind. Nicholls clubbed Kassidy in the back, sending her through the ropes – and he followed her out. Smith has Sienna in the corner, laying repeated boots to her stomach. I guess that’s one way to get the advantage over the champions, to attack them from behind.
Deadprez: It’s called strategy, Eve. All great leaders, great champions, have a strategy. And this is theirs, to get the immediate upperhand and to keep it – the way Jake Smith is doing right now, pulling Sienna out of the corner and laying her out with a big short-arm clothesline. Smith has his hand locked with Sienna’s still and yanks her up to clothesline her down again. The Mightiest One looking good right now!
Eve: Well, while Smith has Sienna down right now, Nicholls has exploited his power and surprise advantage over Kassidy, keeping her grounded with clubbing forearms. Kassidy trying her best to get back to her feet, only to be be shoved back down to the ground and kicked twice more. Grabbing her up, Nicholls shoves her backward into the crowd barrier. Kassidy’s back hits hard and she’s now slumped to the floor. The Revolution certainly have the upper hand over the champions right now.
Deadprez: And they plan on keeping it. Nicholls back on the apron, tagged by Smith. Both members of the Revolution in the ring now .. Double clothesline onto Sienna, flattening her out again, only to follow it with a double cutter! Kassidy’s climbing onto the apron now and into the ring..
Eve: The referee’s cutting her off right there! Come on!
Deadprez: The Revolution utilized the count of the referee to do double team moves, and Smith is out of the ring now. There’s no reason for Kassidy to enter. .. Now Nicholls has Sienna up, holding her with one hand and feeding her a stiff forearm with the other. One after the other. Sienna’s on wobbly legs and Nicholls takes off to the ropes behind him. Coming back .. HUGE CLOTHESLINE! ..
Eve: Sienna ducks underneath it! Nicholls stops down in his tracks and turns around .. chop from Sienna! Nicholls eats the chop, and looks to fire off a shot of his own – but Sienna with another chop. And another, AND ANOTHER! Nicholls backed up against the ropes, giving Sienna time to side step to her corner and tag in Kassidy. The Jaded Hearts now in the ring together, moving to Nicholls. Whipping him across the ring… double dropkick when comes back!
Deadprez: Smith rushing into the ring and grabs Sienna as she returns to her feet, shoving her chest first into the nearest corner. Wait! Kassidy moves behind Smith .. Snap German Suplex! Oh god, Smith just landed on his neck .. and he’s out of the ring, holding that area.
Eve: Nicholls back up to his feet and he and Kassidy are trading strikes. And normally trading strikes with Nicholls is a bad idea due to the power behind this throws, Kassidy’s strikes are precise and each one of them more painful than the last. Forearm by Nicholls, shoot kick by Kassidy. Forearm by Nicholls, Elbow by Kassidy. Back and forth, back and forth… OH! Thumb to the eye by Nicholls. Kassidy throws a wild haymaker, dodged effortlessly by Nicholls and he follows up with a kick – oh, a brainbuster to the Vixen’s champion, planting Kassidy down.
Deadprez: Sienna comes rushing back into the picture, shining wizard to Nicholls in that split second when he’s moving back up to his feet. This match has broken down to absolute chaos with all four in the ring, because now Smith is back in, grabbing a handful of Sienna’s hair and pulling her into position for.. POWERBOMB!!
Eve: WAIT! SIENNA’S FIGHTING BACK WITH CLOSED RIGHT HANDS TO SMITH’S HEAD. ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR! SMITH DROPS SIENNA AND IS ON WOBBLY LEGS FROM THOSE PUNCHES. … Sienna turns around to see Kassidy back up to her feet.. She’s shouting at her..
Sienna Jade (off-mic): GSOM!
Deadprez: :dahell: What is GSOM?
Eve: I’ll tell you… ‘GOLDEN STATE OF MIND’!!!! KASSIDY RAN FORWARD, SIENNA CATAPULTED HER UP OVER HER SHOULDERS AND KASSIDY CAME DOWN WITH A METEROA CRASH ON JAKE SMITH!! KASSIDY REACHES BEHIND HER, GRABBING SMITH’S LEGS AND KEEPING HER KNEES ON HIS SHOULDERS, PINNING HIM DOWN
(ONE… TWO… THREE)
Deadprez: KANGAROO KICK!! NICHOLLS COMES IN AND BLASTS KASSIDY IN THE FACE WITH THAT SUPERKICK!! Kassidy drops like a stone. Sienna turns around when she doesn’t hear the bell, and rushed forward. Nicholls grabs her on the approach and tosses her over the ropes and to the outside of the ring.
Eve: That just leaves Kassidy alone in the ring with the Revolution, who are circling around her like a couple of sharks. That Superkick is having a lasting impression on her, she’s still fighting to get up to her feet. She’s up to her knees… Smith runs forward with a yakuza kick! NO! Kassidy drops all the way down to the mat and Smith misses.
Deadprez: Kassidy’s laying on the mat, Nicholls steps forward.. Double Foot Stomp to her back! NO! Kassidy rolls out of the way. She’s quickly moved up to her feet now, and both members of the Revolution charge forward looking for a double clothesline. Kassidy ducks under that, and runs forward to the ropes. Smith and Nicholls stop in their tracks, turning around..
Eve: KASSIDY HAS LEPT ONTO THE ROPES, SPRINGBOARDING OFF AND TURNING IN MID-AIR CATCHING BOTH OF THEM WITH A CROSSBODY! The crowd is up to their feet and showing their appreciation for that move. Kassidy’s rolled up to her feet now and grabs Nicholls, pulling him up into the corner. She’s giving him her own version of the Violence Party! Rapid fire kick, chop, kick, forearm, kick, ELBOW! The adrenaline is coursing through her veins now and she steps back to the centre of the ring before running in.. HIGH KNEE!!! Nicholls’ is out against the turnbuckle and Kassidy pulls him out, RUSSIAN LEGSWEEP!! PIN!!
(ONE.. TWO.. )
Deadprez: My boy Smith breaks up that cover with an elbow drop the back of Kassidy’s head! The Revolution aren’t going out like that.
Eve: The referee’s warning Smith to exit the ring now, he’s trying to restore some kind of order here. Begrudgingly Smith does as he’s told, leaving Kassidy and Nicholls as the legal competitors whom are both working their way up to their feet. Kassidy throws a right hand, blocked by Nicholls who responds with a stiff headbutt. Kassidy backs up, and Nicholls runs forward taking her down with a simple, but stiff shoulder block.
Deadprez: And here we go. The Revolution now going to use their size and power to slow this match down. Nicholls grabbing Kassidy to her feet, holding her steady with one hand while he hits her with powerful forearm shots before lifting her and planting her with a delayed suplex. Nicholls flips onto his stomach, immediately mounting Kassidy and wraps his hands tightly around her throat – choking the life out of her.
Eve: :damn: Get him off of her, referee! He’s choking the life out of her.
Deadprez: He has until the referee’s five count to let go, and he did. It’s all legal, Eve. And now he’s pulled her up and into his corner, where he tags in Smith. Nicholls grabs Kassidy again, dropping her across his knee with a pendulum backbreaker. Smith climbs up to the middle turnbuckle and jumps off – stomping right on the chest of Kassidy and driving her down to the mat! Jake Smith stands over the Vixen’s champion confidently, watching as she works herself to her knees in front of him.
(Smith bends down a little, shouting in Kassidy’s face..)
Jake Smith (off-mic): KNEEL BEFORE THE REVOLU—
Eve: KASSIDY JUST SLAPPED THE SHIT OUT OF JAKE SMITH!
Eve: Kassidy shooting back up to her feet.. ‘NORVINA LIGHTS’!! Jake Smith was still bent forward, shocked from that slap, and Kassidy just spiked his head into the mat with a Hurricanrana! Kassidy is also still down, but is beginning to crawl to her corner where Sienna waits, arm reached out for the tag…
Deadprez: Smith shaking off those effects of the hurricanrana, reaching out and grabbing Kassidy’s foot stopping her stride. Nicholls forces his way into the ring, grabbing her other foot and they both drag her back. Smart strategy by the Revolution. Nicholls lets go, but Smith doesn’t as he returns to his feet. Kassidy pushes her way up onto her hands and pushes Smith off with her free foot!
Eve: Kassidy back vertical now and Nicholls charges at her.. Drop toe hold from Kassidy! Pushing herself up again, she moves into her corner and tags! Sienna in the ring! Rushing in DOUBLE DROPKICK! She just takes out both Smith and Nicholls with a double dropkick, hitting each one with a single foot. Smith and Nicholls hit the mat and roll out of the ring to collect themselves. Sienna hits the ropes behind her, charging ahead… SUICIDE DIVE!! SIENNA JUST TOOK OUT BOTH SMITH AND NICHOLLS!
Deadprez: :damn: !!
Eve: There’s a pile of bodies on the outside of the ring, leaving just Kassidy on the inside. Kassidy moves to the corner and climbs to the top rope. Sienna is the first to her feet, followed by Smith and Nicholls. Sienna is the first to look up, and as soon as Smith and Nicholls are aware of what’s happening, Kassidy leaps off of the top rope and dives to the outside – taking out everyone!!
( “Holy Shit! Holy Shit”!)
Eve: The tag team scene is on fire and these two teams are absolutely killing it! All four are down and out, Kassidy and Sienna moving closer to one another, verbally checking on one another. Smith is using the ring skirt and apron to pull himself to his feet, and Nicholls is sitting against the steel steps now.
Deadprez: While the Hearts are making sure each other is okay, Smith is up to his feet first and grabs Kassidy up – viciously tossing her into the steel post, then immediately into the barricade.
Eve: Sienna screams loudly at Smith, and is pulling herself up to her feet to help her partner – but Nicholls comes out of nowhere, grabbing Sienna and tossing her into the ring. Nicholls and Smith return to the ring as well and have Sienna up. The Revolution are teeing off on Sienna, back and forth shots from the challengers to the singled out champion.
Deadprez: See? It’s all about strategy, Eve. Single one of them out, and capitalize on it. Smith has a hold of Sienna, keeping her immobile while Nicholls fires off shot after shot. Smith pushes Sienna forward into Nicholls’ arms who lifts her up for a spinebuster. Smith quickly moves to the corner, hops on the middle rope and jumps off.. ‘MIGHTIEST STRENGTH’!! Spinebuster and Leg Lariat combination to Sienna Jade! This is it! NEW CHAMPS?!
(ONE… TWO.. THREE..)
Eve: SIENNA WITH HER SHOULDER UP AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND!! JAKE SMITH CAN’T BELIEVE IT IT. HE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED.
Deadprez: Nicholls grabs the referee, yelling that it was a three count. The referee is refusing and stands firm on the two.
Eve: Smith has turned and sits on his knees, firing closed-fist punches into Sienna’s head. Over and over again, enough that one of his knuckles has created a puncture wound in her head and blood is beginning to trickle out of it. And all the while, Nicholls is still arguing with the referee.
Deadprez: The referee is on Nicholls’ case to get out of the ring, that Smith and Sienna are the legal two..
Eve: KASSIDY IS IN THE RING, QUICKLY MOVING BEHIND JAKE WHILE HE’S STILL MOUNTED SIENNA, AND SHE LOCKS IN THE CELINE DION!!! PULLING BOTH OF HIS ARMS BACK AND LOCKING IN THE KNEELING HAND-CONNECTED OMOPLATA!!
Deadprez: NO NO NO!! THIS IS UNFAIR! THE REFEREE IS MAKING NICHOLLS GET OUT OF THE RING WHILE THIS HUSSY IS IN THE RING ILLEGALLY!!!
EVE: JAKE SMITH IS SCREAMING!! HIS ARMS ARE RESTRAINED BUT HIS HANDS ARE FLAILING AROUND ASIF HE’S TAPPING! SIENNA HAS MANAGED TO MOVE AWAY AND WATCHES KASSIDY APPLYING THE SUBMISSION!
(The referee turns around, seeing Kassidy with the submission on Jake. He turns to signal for the bell!!! ….)
(But he stops and remembers that Sienna is the legal woman! He turns to Kassidy and forces her off of the hold, telling her to exit the ring!)
Eve: Kassidy’s putting up a fight about this. Jake Smith was tapping out.
Deadprez: It’s wasn’t legal though! The Revolution are still in this!
Eve: Sienna moves up to her feet, grabbing Smith and pulling him up too, but Jake knees her in the stomach. Sienna fights back, throwing forearms to Smith and then wrapping him up.. SHE’S GOING FOR IT. THE RIPCORD… ROLLING ELBOW! ‘THE WITCHES HAMMER’!!
Deadprez: NO! JAKE DUCKS UNDER THE ELBOW AND HITS SIENNA WITH ANOTHER SPINEBUSTER! ‘THE PARALYZER’ PLANTING SIENNA FLAT ON THE MAT! … Jake doesn’t pin though, he instructs Nicholls up to the top rope. What are you doing, Jake!? Pin her! She’s out!
Eve: Smith turns around and blasts Kassidy right across the face with a stiff forearm. She doesn’t fall, though. Her hands still tightly grabbing the top rope.
Deadprez: Smith grabs Sienna, pulling her to her feet and into the middle of the ring. He’s grabbed her neck and twists his body, twisting her into position for a Neckbreaker. He looks up to Nicholls and nods.. ‘FORCED TO KNEEL’! ‘FORCED TO KNEEL’!!!
Eve: NOPPPEEEEEE!!!!! AFTER BEING HIT BY THE FOREARM, KASSIDY HELD HER BALANCE FOR A MOMENT AND SHOOK IT OFF. SHE DROPPED OFF OF THE APRON AND RAN AROUND THE RING, HOPING UP ON THE APRON JUST BENEATH NICHOLLS AND RIGHT BEFORE HE DOVE OFF, KASSIDY PUSHED HIM OFF AND HE HUNG HIMSELF UP ON THE ROPES!! NOW KASSIDY’S IN THE RING AND SIENNA HAS WIGGLED OUT OF THE NECKBREAKER. SMITH RUSHES TO MEET KASSIDY, BUT INSTEAD IS HIT WITH A SPINNING HEEL KICK! KASSIDY THEN GRABS SMITH AND WITH A GRIP ON HIS HEAD, RUNS TOWARD SIENNA, WHO’S KNEELING.. ‘THE BEAUTY KILLER’!!! KASSIDY JUST DROVE SMITH’S HEAD ONTO SIENNA’S EXPOSED KNEE!
Deadprez: NO! DAMNIT!! KASSIDY SHOULD HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE RING!! SIENNA HAS ROLLED SMITH ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS HIS LEG. NOT LIKE THIS!
(ONE… TWO…. THREE!!!)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: Here are your winners, AND STILLLLL THE EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! Kassidy Heart and Sienna Jade, THE JADED HEARTS!!!
( “True Love” hits the P.A. again, and Kassidy and Sienna remain in the ring – hugging one another in celebration.)
Eve: The Jaded Hearts have successfully gotten past the challenge of the Revolution, and what a challenge it was! Hats off to Jake Smith and Joshua Nicholls for the tough contest, but the reign of the Jaded Hearts continues.
Deadprez: I have to give credit where it’s due, they put on a fantastic match. But I can’t help but to feel a little jaded. The referee would force Nicholls out, only to let Kassidy come in for the double team? Come on!
(The referee has moved between them, handing them both a championship which they quickly raise over their heads in triumph.)
(Commercial for TRUE LOVE: One Year Anniversary Collection of the Jaded Hearts. Available for preorder tomorrow)
(Camera opens to see Jack Haze sitting alone in his locker room)
Jack Haze: Tonight… tonight is where I show everyone what I’m capable of. No more being tossed into random matches in the undercard. I’ve heard every comment made about myself getting into this match. Everyone saying I’m not ready or not gonna make it. But I’m still here.
(He pauses and takes a deep breath)
Jack Haze: No matter how anyone else feels about it, I chose the path of enlightenment. I want to teach the world to find this same nirvana that has blessed me. And EAW has given me the platform to spread that message of peace and love. And message that Ahren Fournier would have tossed out while he wears the fur coats of the animals he pretends to support. Sitting in his ivory tower looking down on others.
(Jack shakes his head and looks directly into the camera)
Jack Haze: But I promise you all. When I win the EAW Championship tonight, this game will change. There won’t be a champion who thinks he’s too good for anything. Because I will welcome all challengers, all people. No matter what. My name is Jack Haze. And I’m here to live my dream. I’m here tonight to become the EAW Champion.
(Camera fades to black before transitioning to the arena)
(“Lowlife” — Theory of a Deadman plays through the speakers as the crowd gives a mixed reaction to Cody Marshall, who walks out with a huge grin on his face. He takes in the reception of the crowd before making his way down the ramp and to the ring.)
Gina Romano: The following match is a FOUR CORNERS TEXAS BULLROPE MATCH! The only way to win the match is by tagging all four of the corners consecutively! Introducing first, from Dallas, Texas, weighing in 305 pounds, he is the “American Sniper”, COOOOOOOODDDDDDYYYYYYYY MAAARRRRRSSSSHHHAAAALLLLLLLL!!
Deadprez: Cody Marshall has a bone to pick with Terry Chambers! He blames Terry for sticking his nose in business that did not concern him! His problems were with Jack Haze, who be blames cost him the tag team match which would have been for an opportunity for the Unified Tag Team Championships!
Eve: Cody Marshall has to watch Jack Haze fighting Ahren Fournier later tonight for the EAW Championship, but Cody plans to defeat Terry Chambers and possibly send anyone a message of what happens when you get in Cody Marshall’s way.
(“Can’t Be Touched” — Roy Jones Jr. replaces “Lowlife” as Terry Chambers walks out with a pissed off look on his face. His sights are set on Cody Marshall, who is already in the ring, warming up for the match.)
Gina Romano: Introducing his opponent, from Detroit Michigan, weighing in 287 pounds, he is “The Barbaric Carnivore”, TERRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYY CHHHHAAAAAMMMMBEEEERRRRRRSSSSS!!
Eve: Terry Chambers found himself on the receiving end of Cody Marshall’s attack on Showdown last week! Terry is more than determined to get back at Cody Marshall for that! Terry may not be getting the title opportunities; however, he has proven to be one of the most dangerous men on Showdown! I do not think that Cody should be taking Terry lightly!
Deadprez: I don’t think Terry Chambers should be taking Cody Marshall lightly! Both these men could kill the other if they are given the right opportunity to do so! The question is: who will kill the other first?
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Eve: This Texas Bullrope Four Corners Match is underway! “The American Sniper”, Cody Marshall versus “The Barbaric Carnivore”, Terry Chambers! I’m not sure about you Deadprez, but this being a Texas Bullrope Match makes it seem like this match will fall in Cody’s favor! Being from Texas and all, he should have an edge over Terry when it comes to that. He is more aware of what this match is all about! Both Terry and Cody are huge men, so it is going to be difficult to take the other one down! I have no idea how this bullrope is going to keep him back! I wouldn’t be shocked if he manages to break free of that rope! On the other hand, I can also see how this will hold Cody Marshall back. If Terry wants to go right after him, he could probably do so without any issue at all!
(Terry Chambers and Cody Marshall are separated by the ten feet bullrope. The two men are exchanging some heated words at one another, but Cody is the first one to break the serious tension with a chuckle.)
Deadprez: TERRY CHAMBERS WITH THE FIRST SHOT IN THIS MATCH! HE BEGINS TO UNLOAD IN A SERIES OF PUNCHES AT CODY MARSHALL! Cody seemed like he was caught off guard with that as he is backed away to the ropes! Terry gets Cody by his right arm before whipping him to the opposite ropes, but Cody manages to stop himself in his tracks as he counters the whip! Terry rebounds from the ropes to connect with a shoulder block as that does not completely knock down the 6’8, 305 pound Cody Marshall! Terry goes back and rebounds himself off the ropes before connecting with another shoulder tackle as that seems to knock Cody off his feet; however, Cody doesn’t go down as he manages to attempt his own shoulder block! BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, TERRY BEGINS TO SHOVE CODY AS THAT PUSHES HIM A FEW STEPS AWAY FROM HIM. BUT, CODY RETURNS THE FAVOR BY SHOVING TERRY! RIGHT AWAY, THE TWO MONSTER OF A MEN BEGIN TO THROW SOME FIERY FOREARMS AT EACH OTHER! NONE OF THESE MEN ARE GIVING THE OTHER TIME TO BREATHE! TERRY REBOUNDS FROM THE ROPES TO CONNECT WITH A FOREARM THAT MANAGES TO KNOCK CODY A COUPLE STEPS AWAY, BUT TERRY MANAGES TO FOLLOW THAT UP WITH DISCUS CLOTHESLINE THAT INSTANTLY DROPS CODY TO THE MAT!
Eve: Terry Chambers needs to make sure to stay on that offense as he follows that up with a running elbow drop to Cody Marshall’s chest! Terry connects with another elbow drop! And another one! And another one! And another one! I’m starting to feel like Talib Bari at the moment because Terry connects with another elbow drop as it seems like Cody is down! Even though, it would be a good opportunity for Terry to get the pinfall, that cannot happen as the rule of the winner of this match will be determined by whoever can touch all four corners first! TERRY GETS BACK UP TO HIS FEET AS HE SLOWLY GOES UP TO THE FIRST CORNER! HE MANAGES TO TAG THE FIRST CORNER AS THE HUGE GREEN LIGHT FLASHES! THIS MAY BE A QUICK MATCH, DEADPREZ! TERRY GOES OVER TO THE SECOND CORNER AS HE MANAGES TO TAG IT AS THE GREEN LIGHT FLASHES AGAIN! TERRY GOES OVER TO THE THIRD CORNER! IT SEEMS LIKE THIS MATCH IS GOING TO END! TERRY GOES TO TAG THE THIRD CORNER!
Deadprez: Cody Marshall springs back to life as he manages to get Terry Chambers by his head as he pulls him back! Since Cody was there to stop Terry from connecting with that third corner, that means the next time Terry has the opportunity to touch all four corners, he needs to do them consecutively! This is not like a book, where he can bookmark and save the page! He needs to start all over and make sure he touches all four corners without stopping at all! The same thing with Cody Marshall! Terry turns himself around as Cody now his his hand clutched on his throat! He lifts Terry off his feet! Chokeslam! Cody Marshall just lifted Terry Chambers high up in the air! Terry goes crashing to the ground as he clutches to his throat in pain! However, it seems like Cody is not done with torturing Terry! He picks up the “The Barbaric Carnivore” and connects with a short-arm clothesline! Terry falls to the mat as Cody picks up Terry again and connects with another short-arm clothesline! Cody does the same thing for a third time! Four! Five! Six! Seven! Eight! Nine! Ten! Ten short-arm clotheslines as the former Hardcore Champion gets Terry back to his feet and connects with a big foot! Terry falls down to the mat as Cody Marshall is left standing tall at the moment!
Eve: THIS WOULD BE A GOOD MOMENT FOR CODY MARSHALL TO ATTEMPT TAGGING ALL FOUR CORNERS! WOW, I GIVE GREAT ADVICE AND IT SEEMS LIKE CODY IS JUST DOING THAT! CODY APPROACHES THE FIRST CORNER BEFORE MAKING IT AS A RED LIGHT BEGINS TO FLASH! CODY GOES OVER TO THE SECOND CORNER AS HE MANAGES TO SMACK THE CORNER AS THE RED LIGHT FLASHES AGAIN! CODY HAS A HUGE SMIRK ON HIS FACE AS HE GOES OVER TO THE THIRD CORNER! CODY GOES TO SMACK THE THIRD CORNER —
Deadprez: — Terry Chambers manages to find himself going back to a vertical base! He manages to stop Cody Marshall, but clutching onto his hand! Cody turns herself around as Terry connects with a giant kick to Cody’s stomach! Terry follows that with a European uppercut as Cody goes flying back against the ropes! Terry begins to connect with a series of knees onto Cody’s stomach! Cody is doing his best to stop this, but Terry is getting each shot in! He refuses to rest if it means winning this match! TERRY GETS CODY IN POSITION BEFORE CONNECTING WITH AN EXPLODER SUPLEX! OH GOD! CODY MARSHALL LANDS ON THAT COWBELL THAT IS THAT IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BULLROPE THAT IS SEPARATING BOTH CODY AND TERRY! THE BULLROPE HASN’T SHOWN TO GIVE EITHER MEN ANY PROBLEMS, BUT THE COWBELL IN THE MIDDLE WILL BE THE ONE THING THAT BOTH MEN WILL BE REACHING FOR AS A WEAPON! CODY IS CLUTCHING HIS BACK IN PAIN! That cowbell is more than just a quote from that one Saturday Night Live sketch, but it can cause a lot of pain if given to the wrong person! With both of these men in this match, either can be the wrong hands!
Eve: We haven’t seen the cowbell be a factor in this match up until Terry Chambers connected with that exploder suplex, but I just believe that Terry was lucky the move had more impact than what he could have hoped! Terry rises back to his feet as he gets Cody Marshall by yanking his arm back to his feet! Terry whips Cody onto the corner as Cody collapses at the corner! He doesn’t even have much strength to get himself back up to his feet! However, Terry is not going to let that stop him at all! Terry takes a few steps back before running and connecting with a cannonball senton! Terry collides with “The American Sniper”! Both men are on the ground, but Terry manages to roll himself over and back to his feet! With Terry still at the corner, Terry begins to stomp on the chest of Cody Marshall before stopping that and beginning to choke Cody! But, Terry even stops that! He gets the cowbell and tries to place it on top of Cody’s throat! What in the world is Terry going to do with that?
Deadprez: TERRY CHAMBERS PLACES HIS FOOT ON THE COWBELL WHICH PRESSES INTO CODY MARSHALL’S THROAT! TERRY IS CHOKING THE LIVING HELL OUT OF CODY! THE OFFICIAL OF THE MATCH MANAGES TO PULL TERRY AWAY FROM CODY! Terry is glaring at the official before going back to inflict even more punishment to Cody! Cody seems to be down at the moment! Terry gets Cody back up to his feet before getting him in position and connecting with a samoan drop! Cody collides with the mat as he is clutching his back in pain! It seems like Terry is more than determine to finish off this match! If Terry Chambers is able to connect with Locked in the Chambers, that coquina clutch, this match is all over! He won’t have to worry about Cody getting in the way and he’ll be able to tag all four corners without any issue at all! Terry manages to get Cody back to his feet! It seems like Terry is going for Locked in the Chambers! He’s planning to lock in that submission move! but, Cody Marshall drops to the ground! I’m not sure if that was because he wasn’t able to stand up completely or he knew that move was coming, but Cody rolls himself underneath the bottom rope and to the outside! He could be buying himself some time! But, Terry doesn’t look like he is planning to do what whatsoever! Terry exits the ring and he stands on the apron! He waits for Cody to turn himself around before connecting with a flying forearm!
Eve: CODY MARSHALL CONNECTS WITH A BIG BOOT TO TERRY CHAMBERS MID-AIR! HOW IN THE WORLD WAS HE ABLE TO DO THAT? TERRY COLLAPSES RING SIDE! TERRY WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT AT ALL! CODY JUST TURNED THIS MATCH INTO HIS FAVOR WITH THAT GIANT BIG BOOT! CODY PICKS UP TERRY AND GETS HIM BACK TO HIS FEET BEFORE GETTING HIS HEAD AND RUNNING TOWARDS THE STEEL RING POST! TERRY’S HEAD GOES BOUNCING OFF THAT RING POST! TERRY COLLAPSES TO THE GROUND AS CODY DECIDES TO PICK UP TERRY AGAIN BEFORE BOUNCING OFF HIS HEAD AGAINST THE STEEL RING POST AGAIN! Terry falls to the ground instantly again! I would not be shocked if Terry has some sort of concussion at the moment, but Cody does not give a damn about what he needs to do to win this match! This is a lot like Terry in a way! These two men do not give a damn about each other’s wellbeing’s and I don’t blame them whatsoever! Cody gets Terry back to his feet, but Terry seems to be a little loopy at the moment! Cody gets Terry by his right arm before whipping him against those steel steps! Terry is down! Cody Marshall tries to stay on that offense as he takes a few steps back before running and connecting with big boot! Terry is already done, but that big boot was still awful to look at! Cody places his foot against Terry Chambers’ throat! It seems like Cody is getting some revenge for what Terry did earlier in the match! Look at that, Deadprez! He gets the cowbell and places it against Terry’s throat! Cody presses the cowbell which is already against Terry’s throat! It’s now Terry’s turn to feel what Cody felt earlier in this match! Terry looks like he’s in pain at the moment! He is trying to gain some strength to get Cody’s foot off his throat!
Deadprez: Look at that, Eve! Terry Chambers is somehow lifting Cody Marshall’s foot off his throat! Terry seems to be a little shaky, but he is somehow gaining enough strength to get Cody’s foot off his throat! The strength of Terry cannot be ignored! CODY IS HOPPING ON ONE FOOT! HIS OTHER FOOT IS IN THE GRASPS! TERRY IS SLOWLY RISING BACK TO HIS FEET! CODY IS HOPING ON HIS AVAILABLE FOOT AS TERRY MANAGES TO TIP CODY OVER! TERRY HAS A GOOD HOLD OF CODY’S RIGHT FOOT! TERRY CONNECTS WITH AN ELBOW DROP ON CODY’S RIGHT LEG! CODY IS CLUTCHING ONTO THAT LEG IN PAIN! BUT, TERRY MANAGES TO GET A HOLD OF CODY’S RIGHT LEG AGAIN! TERRY CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER ELBOW DROP! TERRY GETS CODY’S LEG AGAINST AND CONNECTS WITH A THIRD ELBOW DROP! TERRY STILL HAS CODY’S FOOT AS HE LIFTS IT UP AND SMACKS IT AGAINST THE STEEL STEPS! CODY YELLS OUT IN PAIN! TERRY HAS DONE A FANTASTIC JOB WITH INFLICTING AS MUCH PUNISHMENT AS POSSIBLE! BUT, IT SEEMS LIKE HE IS NOT DONE YET AS HE GET THAT SAME LEG OF CODY’S BEFORE WHIPPING IT AGAINST THE RING POST! CODY FLINCHES IN PAIN! Terry has a sinister smirk on his face and it seems like his work is done as he rolls back into the ring! It seems like Terry may not need to lock in Locked in the Chambers! I think Terry has done enough damage to keep Cody down for the count!
Eve: Terry Chambers goes to the first corner as he smacks it! The green light flashes! If Terry manages to do that three other times right now, he will win this match! Meanwhile, Cody Marshall is clutching to his right leg ringside! He is seething in anger as he tries to fight through the pain and stop Terry from touching all four corners! Terry manages to touch the second corner as the green light flashes again! Terry seems pretty confident at the moment as he manages to get to the third corner, smack it! The light flashes once again as it seems like Terry Chambers is going to win this match for himself! He goes to that fourth corner!
Deadprez: Not if Cody Marshall has anything to do with it, he manages to fight through the leg pain, slide underneath the ring and grab onto Terry Chambers’ leg! Terry stops himself in his tracks as he turns around, but Cody manages to trip Terry! In the process, this moves Terry away from the corner as Terry collapses to his knees! Cody tries to get back to a vertical base, but you can tell that his right leg is giving him a troubling time! Cody gets Terry in position before connecting with a sidewalk slam! Terry goes down! I have no idea how Cody Marshall or Terry Chambers can go on in this match! Both these men have thrown so much at each other! These men have been pulling all the stops to make sure that they walk out of this match as the winner! If Cody wants to win this match, he is going to need to suck it up and continue this match! Cody begins to unload a series of punches onto Terry’s forehead! Cody tries to make it back to a vertical base as he gets Terry Chambers back to his feet! Cody manages to whip Terry to the ropes! Terry tries to hold onto the ropes, but Cody runs right after Terry, but Terry gets his foot back as he manages to push Cody back for the time being! Cody gets Terry by the arm before connecting with a short-arm clothesline! Terry goes down as Cody gets Terry back to his feet again! Cody gets Terry up before running towards the turnbuckle and connecting with snake eyes! Terry manages to turn himself around before Cody follows that up with a big boot! Terry Chambers finds himself down once again!
Eve: CODY MARSHALL HAS THE UPPER HAND IN THIS MATCH, BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE A FANTASTIC TIME TO END THIS MATCH! THE MORE THIS MATCH PROGRESSES, THE MORE BRUTAL IT WILL GET! CODY GETS TERRY BACK UP TO HIS FEET! IT SEEMS LIKE CODY IS GETTING TERRY IN POSITION FOR THE ELEVATED POWERBOMB! CODY CALLS THIS “WELCOME TO HELL”! CODY LIFTS TERRY, BUT TERRY IS STANDING HIS GROUND! TERRY IS REFUSING FOR THAT POWERBOMB TO CONNECT! TERRY KNOWS THAT IF CODY MANAGES TO CONNECT WITH THIS MOVE THAT THIS MATCH IS OVER FOR HIM! CODY LIFTS TERRY UP AGAIN, BUT TERRY STILL HAS HIS FEET PLANTED ON THE GROUND! CODY GOES TO LIFT TERRY UP FOR A THIRD TIME, BUT TERRY MANAGES TO FLIP CODY BEHIND HIM! CODY ENDS UP LANDING ON HIS BACK AS TERRY SEEMS LIKE HE HAS A SIGN OF LIFE STILL IN HIM! Terry Chambers has a pissed off look on his face! This is Terry at his most dangerous! This is a Terry Chambers Cody Marshall wants no part of! Terry is yelling for Cody to get back up to his feet! Cody is slowly rising up to his feet as the crowd feels the anticipation of what is going to come next —
Deadprez: — DISCUS CLOTHESLINE BY TERRY CHAMBERS! Cody Marshall drops like a sack of potatoes! Terry picks up Cody before getting him by the waist and connecting with a German suplex! Cody gets dropped to the back of his head! Terry quickly gets back up to his feet as he grabs Cody again before getting him position to connect with the exploder suplex! Cody collides with the corner as he clutches to his back in pain! Terry gets Cody back to a vertical base by his skull before connecting with a snap suplex! CODY MARSHALL IS DOWN AS TERRY PICKS UP THE COWBELL, WHICH HAS PROVEN TO BE USEFUL IN THIS MATCH! EVEN THOUGH IT IS IN THE CENTER OF THE BULLROPE, THEY HAVE STILL FOUND IT EFFECTIVE! TERRY HAS THE COWBELL IN HIS HAND AS HE GESTURES FOR CODY TO RISE BACK TO HIS FEET! THIS IS NOT GOING TO LOOK GOOD, EVE! THIS COULD POSSIBLE GIVE CODY A CONCUSSION IF NOT HANDLED WELL!
Eve: TERRY CHAMBERS JUST HIT CODY MARSHALL WITH THE COWBELL AGAINST HIS SKULL! CODY MANAGES TO FALL TO ONE KNEE, BUT TERRY CONTINUES TO HIT THE COWBELL AGAINST THE TOP OF CODY’S HEAD! I THINK THAT CODY IS BLEEDING FROM HIS FOREHEAD AS IT IS BEGINNING TO TRICKLE DOWN! TERRY IS GOING BALLISTIC WITH THAT COWBELL! BUT, HE FIGURES THAT CODY MARSHALL NEEDS MORE COWBELL WITH THAT BEATDOWN! TERRY WRAPS SOME OF THE AVAILABLE ROPE AROUND CODY’S NECK! HE IS GOING TO CHOKE THE MAN! TERRY HAS LOCKED IN THE CHAMBERS APPLIED AS HE IS CHOKING CODY WITH THE ROPE! CODY IS TRYING TO FIGHT THIS, BUT THIS MAY ALL BE OVERWHELMING TO HIM! TERRY CANNOT WIN THIS MATCH VIA SUBMISSION! However, applying that coquina clutch may be useful in making sure that Cody stays down, so that Terry can win this match! Cody is trying to scream out of pain! Even though in this tough position, Cody is still showing signs of life! Cody is trying to roll himself over to his front! He is trying to muster up enough strength to get back to his feet! Terry still has Locked in the Chambers applied, but Cody is trying to gain enough strength to get up! Cody is shaky, but he seems to be getting back up to his feet! Cody is trying to lean himself forward to clutch to those ropes!
Deadprez: Cody Marshall instead manages to go backwards as Terry Chambers collides with those ropes! But, Terry is not letting go of that coquina clutch! Cody goes backwards again as Terry collides with the ropes for a second time! Terry is still not letting go, so Cody goes backwards for a third time as Terry finally releases Locked in the Chambers! Terry falls to the ground as Cody does the same thing as well! The two of these men have put each other through some hell! I am not sure what else the can do, but these two are refusing to let the other win! It’s understandable, but when is all of this going to be enough?
Eve: Both men get back to their feet at the same time, but these two men are wobbly on their feet! Cody Marshall throws a punch at Terry Chambers! Terry throws a punch at Cody! Cody! Terry! Cody! Terry! Cody! Terry! Cody throws a punch at Terry as he falls down to one knee! Cody pulls Terry in as he connects with a DDT! Holy crap, I think Terry just landed head first against the cowbell! Not sure if that was intentional or Cody was just lucky, but that seemed to be quite effective as Cody slowly gets back up to his feet! The cowbell is in his hand as he is gesturing for Terry to get back up to his feet! It seems like Cody is more than determined to end this match and end it right now! TERRY CHAMBERS TURNS HIMSELF AROUND AS CODY RUNS TOWARDS HIM AS HE HITS TERRY FOREHEAD FIRST WITH THE COWBELL! THAT WAS ENOUGH TO KNOCK TERRY DOWN! BY THE LOOKS OF THINGS, THAT WAS ENOUGH TO MAKE TERRY BLEED, BUT CODY IS FAR FROM DONE AT THE MOMENT! HE RUNS AND HE GOES AFTER TERRY BEFORE SITTING HIM BACK UP! HE IS BASHING THE COWBELL AGAINST HIS SKULL! CODY IS SEEKING A BIT OF REVENGE FOR WHAT TERRY DID EARLIER IN THIS MATCH! BLOOD IS STARTING TO POUR OUT OF TERRY’S SKULL! IS IT POSSIBLE TO STOP THIS MATCH AT THE MOMENT? THE GUY HAS BEEN PUT THROUGH ENOUGH! CODY STOPS BASHING THE COWBELL AGAINST TERRY’S SKULL! TERRY SEEMS OUT OF IT AND THERE IS NOT A DAMN THING ANYONE CAN DO ABOUT IT!
(Cody Marshall manages to kick Terry Chambers as he rolls underneath the bottom rope to the outside of the ring. Terry falls to ring side as Cody Marshall exits the ring through the ropes before stepping down ringside. There, he lifts the ring skirt up before looking for something underneath the ring, but ends up pulling a tool box! He opens the tool box before pulling out a …)
Deadprez: HE’S GOT A GUN! :damn:
Eve: Deadprez, that’s a staple gun.
Eve: Cody Marshall has a staple gun in his position as he goes near Terry Chambers again! If anyone can see, Terry has a deep cut on the right side of his forehead! Cody tests out the staple gun to see if it is working — CODY MARSHALL STAPLES THAT CUT TOGETHER… OR AT LEAST, HE’S TRYING! IT’S THE EFFORT THAT COUNTS! OH MY GOD! IS CODY EVEN A PROFESSIONAL AT THIS! HE JUST STOPPED STAPLING THAT CUT AS HE MOVES TO JUST STAPLING OVER HIS FOREHEAD! SOMEONE GET THAT STAPLE AWAY FROM HIM! Well, it seems like he took my advice as he throws that staple gun to the side, but he looks inside the tool box! What else can he bring into this match?
Deadprez: A TASER??? Cody Marshall is for sure looking to kill Terry Chambers, but I feel like this is taking it too far! Cody Marshall raises the taser up in the air! I’m not sure if I like what is going to happen next, Eve! CODY TURNS THE TASER ON AS HE AWAITS FOR TERRY TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET, BUT I’M NOT SURE HOW THAT WILL EVEN BE POSSIBLE AT THIS POINT OF THE MATCH! TERRY TURNS HIMSELF AROUND AS CODY MARSHALL GOES RIGHT AFTER HIM AND TASERS TERRY IN HIS CHAMBERS!
Eve: CODY MARSHALL JUST TASERED TERRY CHAMBERS IN THE TESTICLES! THIS HAPPENED TO OUR CHAIRMAN BACK AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION AND IT WAS NOT A PRETTY SIGHT THEN! Terry falls to his knees as he is holding his testicles, but he then proceeds to taser the back of Terry’s neck! Cody turns the taser off before throwing it to the side before getting Terry by his neck! Cody raises Terry up! RAAAAAPPPPPPTUUUURRRRRRREEEEEEEE!! THE TWO HANDED CHOKESLAM AS TERRY CHAMBERS FALLS AGAINST THE EDGE OF THE APRON! TERRY IS OUT OF IT FOR SURE! I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYONE CAN MOVE AT THIS POINT! CODY MARSHALL ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING! HE GOES OVER TO THE FIRST CORNER AS HE TAGS IT! THE RED LIGHT BEGINS TO FLASH! CODY GOES TO THE SECOND CORNER BEFORE TAGGING IT! THE RED LIGHT FLASHES AGAIN!
(Terry Chambers is completely out of it as a medical personal is checking on him, but Cody Marshall seems to be going towards the third corner.)
Deadprez: CODY MARSHALL MANAGES TO TAG THE THIRD CORNER AS THE RED LIGHT FLASHES FOR A THIRD TIME! ONE MORE CORNER, CODY! JUST ONE MORE AND YOU WIN THE MATCH! CODY SLOWLY GOES TOWARDS THE FOURTH CORNER. HE HAS A HUGE SMILE ON HIS FACE AS HE GETS CLOSER TO THE CORNER!
(Terry Chambers is still down and showing no signs of getting up.)
Eve: CODY MARSHALL TAGS THE FOURTH CORNER! THE RIGHT LIGHT FLASHES! THIS MATCH IS OVER!
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
(“Lowlife” plays again as Cody Marshall collapses to his knees, feeling exhausted, but happy that he managed to win the match. He has a huge grin on his face as the official raises his hand in victory.)
Gina Romano: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH, COOOOOODDDDDDDDYYYYYYYYYY MARRRRSSSSSHHHHHAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!
Deadprez: What a war that Terry Chambers and Cody Marshall put each other through! I don’t think people had much expectations going into this match, but these two brought everything to the table! These two pulled out every trick in the book that they could, but Cody manages to pull it off and win!
Eve: I’m kind of concerned about Terry Chambers! He took a beating around the last parts of this match! You may love or hate the guy, but I’m not sure if he was deserving of the beating that he got! I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a concussion at the moment! That cowbell is no joke.
Deadprez: Neither is that taser or staple gun.
(Cody Marshall is celebrating in the ring to a mixed reception of the crowd, but there are some fans, who are quite speechless of beating Terry Chambers received. Terry is being checked on by the medical personal as they try to get him back to his feet. Terry tries to push the medical personal away and walk away, but Terry collapses to the ground. The last shot is of Cody Marshall resuming his celebration without having a care about what is occurring ringside.)
(Commercial for Ides of March)
(Camera opens to find Jax Walker and the Openweight Champion, TLA, at the trainers area being looked at as Cori Simmons approaches)
Jax Walker: I’m fine! IM FINE!
(Jax stands and shoves his way through, clutching where he’s just been bandaged as he walks away, leaving Cori with TLA)
Cori Simmons: TLA, that was an amazing match earlier with Chris Elite! I know you came out on the short end of it, but how are you feeling after your performance.
TLA: Ayy. It is what it is. La Pantera Sexual took that L tonight. But it was sudden death in a classic Iron Man match. Can’t say we ain’t take it to each other. And while there’s always gonna be a rivalry between me and Chris, there’s some respect too.
Cori Simmons: You had a war tonight, but now you have to look towards Erebus Jennings at Ides of March. How do you get things turned around in just six short days?
TLA: I’m TLA. That’s how. Erebus gonna be a big challenge to get through but I just gotta keep doing what I do. I ain’t win the Openweight Championship by changing my gameplan. I just gotta keep being TLA.
Cori Simmons: is there any message you’d like to send to Erebus?
TLA: Yeah. Hey ese. I got no hate for you. You done what you done, even getting dat PURE title for a while. Respect, homie. But this ain’t about what you done. This gonna be about what I’m about to do. Ya boy gonna get this last defense, and then I’m gonna take it to Ahren Fournier or Jack Haze, whoever the champ is. I’m hungry for that top spot. And you best believe TLA gonna take.
Cori Simmons: Thank you so much for your time, TLA.
(TLA nods and the camera fades to black)
(Camera re-opens to see Deadprez and Eve at the commentary desk)
Deadprez: We’ve had an amazing night of action so far here at Under Siege! And it’s still coming!
Eve: That’s right, DP! Up next we’ll be seeing our co-main event of the evening!
(“Bury Me Face Down” by Grandson suddenly blasts through the arena as the crowd rains boos down on Drake King who makes his way onto the stage wearing his custom made crown. He throws his arms out and makes a face, mocking the crowd)
Eve: Drake King is not afraid to tell the fans exactly how he feels about them!
Deadprez: The crowd isn’t afraid to do the same to Drake, though!
Crowd: OK OK OK OK OK OK OK OK
(Drake is now covering his ears to try and block the capacity crowd’s chanting to no avail. He pressed harder onto his ears in a desperate attempt as he makes his way down the ramp.)
Drake King (off mic): NO NO NO NO!!!!!!
Crowd: OK OK OK OK OK OK OK OK
Deadprez: Ever since Drake declares himself the true King of EAW, he’s really become something else! It’s hard to tell if he’s been more vicious or just more unstable! One thing is for damn sure. He believes every word he says and he wants to be the only man with a crown standing after tonight!
Eve: No don’t about that. Drake came into EAW as a major fan favorite. But a series of high profile losses sent him down an increasingly dark path until he just finally snapped. What we see here tonight is not the Drake King we knew, but the Drake King he chose to become. And it’s never quite clear what’s going on inside that head of his.
(Drake slides inside the ring, still trying to drown the chants out as “Pray For Em” by Meek Mill suddenly hits to a big mixed reaction from the crowd as Malcolm Jones walks out with his black bomber jacket, sunglasses and gold chains. He also wears the King of Elite crown on his head and the Interwire Championship around his waist)
Deadprez: And here’s the man who won his crown! Malcolm Jones not only won the Road To Redemption qualifier, he took his momentum and won the 2019 King of Elite crown while also actively defending the Interwire Championship! He’s not afraid to show anyone on the roster exactly what he’s capable of!
(Malcolm walks down the ramp with a confident grin and a swagger in his step. He keeps his eyes locked on Drake inside the ring as he walks)
Eve: Gotta say, I’m surprised to see Malcolm here alone. No one can deny what he can do but given his recent altercations with the Revolution you’d think he’d have a few Joneset members around with him tonight. Hell, I half expected Solomon to come after him after he TLC match they were both in.
Deadprez: That wouldn’t go too well for Solomon.
Eve: You right.
Deadprez: Besides. All that bullshit aside Malcolm is still walking into Under Siege healthy and as the reigning champion. He gets things done by his damn self. He don’t need anyone to do his work for him.
(Malcolm climbs up and poses on the apron before slimming between the ropes and into the ring. He takes a jab step at Drake King who looks ready to fight before turning and standing on top of the turnbuckle for a moment before hopping down and beginning to remove his entrance gear)
Gina Romano: Ladies and gentlemen the following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL!!
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Gina Romano: And it is for the EAW Interwire Championship!!!!!
Gina Romano: Introducing first, the challenger. He comes from Charlotte, North Carolina by way of Brooklyn, New York. He stands at 6 feet and 1 inch tall and weighs in at 220 pounds… he is the self proclaimed King of EAW…. DRRRRAAAAAAKKEEEE KKIIIIIIIIINNNGGGG!!!!!
(Drake adjusts the crown on his head before turning to face the crowd with his arms out, soaking in the boos)
Gina Romano: And Introducing the Champion. He comes from Harlem, New York. He stands at 6 feet and 1 inch tall and weighs in at 230 pounds… he is the 2019 King of Elite and the reigning EAW Interwire Champion… The Rose That Grew From the Concrete Jungle… MALLLLLLCCCOOOLLLLMMMM JJJOOOONNNNEEEEESSSSSSSS!!!!!
(Malcolm takes the belt and the crown off himself before holding both up to the crowd at the same time. The referee then walks up and Malcolm hands him the belt before handing the crown to an official on the outside who paces it with the time keeper. The referee shows Drake the title and Drake nods as he removes his own crown and tosses it to an official.)
Eve: Looks like we are finally ready to get this one going.
(The referee holds the title up for he camera before handing it to the outside and calling for the bell)
(DING! DING! DING!)
Eve: AND JUST LIKE THAT DRAKE KING IS OFF LIKE A ROCKET! HE CHARGES STRAIGHT AT MALCOLM AND TRIES A FLYING SHOULDER TACKLE! OH BUT MALCOLM SIDESTEPS AND SENDS DRAKE INTO THE CORNER! ROOKIE MISTAKE AND MALCOLM ROLLS HIM UP FROM BEHIND!
Deadprez: But Drake kicks out! He got overexcited and it nearly cost him! Malcolm now drops on top of Drake and begins to pummel to so called King with punches from the top! He grabs Drake now by the wrist! He pulls King slowly to his feet! Now Malcolm twists Drakes wrist and spins underneath it! Pulls Drake in! ENZIGURI! YOU COULD HEAR HIS BOOT POP OFF THE SIDE OF DRAKES FACE ALL THE WAY OVER HERE! King drops to the mat and rolls out to the apron! He stunned! He suet to get out of the gate in this match and MJ is outclassing him! Drake grabs at the ropes and he’s pulling himself up and… wait… what is… MJ is lining up! King is still foggy as he’s getting up on the apron! MJ TAKES OFF! C-NOTE! MJ JUST SPEARED DRAKE THROUGH THE ROPES AND TO THE OUTSIDE! BOTH MEN CRASH BUT MJ LANDS ON TOP OF KING AND NOW MJ IS UP! HES STANDING OVER DRAKE!
Malcolm Jones (off mic): I’M THE REAL KING, BITCH!
Eve: Drake King is in serious danger! He’s struggling to stand as Malcolm just towers over him now! But not the referee is yelling at them both to get inside but MJ ignores it! Drake is trying to get himself up but MJ won’t let him breathe! Now here comes the referee and he just turned MJ around! He’s yelling at them both to—
Deadprez: DRAKE JUST SHOVED MJ INTO THE REF! The referee is stumbles back and— LOW BLOW! DRAKE KING WITH THE LOW BLOW FROM BEHIND TO MALCOLM JONES! MJ is on his knees and looks like he can’t breathe! Drake pulls himself up by the help of the barricade! He stumbles over and grabs MJ by the head for a vicious DDT to the floor! The referee is recovered from his minor scuffing but he didn’t see the low blow! Drake now pulling MJ up to his feet! That DDT May have scrambled his brain a bit! And Drake now rolling Malcolm back into the ring and climbing himself up onto the apron! SPRINGBOARD FROG SPLASH! It connects and Drake hooks the leg of the champion!
Eve: But Malcolm not done yet! He’s been through wars here! It’s gonna take more than that to put him down! But Drake isn’t happy about it! Now he’s up and stomping the champion into the mat! MJ trying to make his way to the ropes but Drake isn’t letting up with the assault! Drake takes a step back and RUNNING PUNT KICK INTO THE RIBS! Drake isn’t trying to disassemble the Interwire Champion now! MJ needs to get some space and now Drake pulls back again and he looks ready! MJ is to his knees and crawling towards the ropes and DRAKE TAKES OFF! KNEEL TO THE KING!
Deadprez: NO! Drake went for the curb stomp but Malcolm scouted it and lifted himself up when King came in! Launched Drake into the air and— CATCHES DRAKE ON THE JAW WITH A MASSIVE UPPERCUT AS HE DROPS! DRAKE KINGS DROPS TO THE MAT! MJ STUMBLES OVER AND SLUMPS INTO THE CORNER TO BREATHE! THIS MATCH ONLY JUST GOT STARTED BUT BEING INTERWIRE CHAMPION MEANS SO MUCH TO BOTH OF THESE MEN!
Eve: MJ pulls himself out of the corner now and looks to keep grinding away at Drake. He reaches down and grabs the rear waist lock and drags him up to his feet!! BIG BELLY TO BACK SUPLEX!!! Drake crashed hard, and it looks like the damage is starting to build up for him! MJ sees this and is looking to capitalize! He grabs Drake by the head and pulls him up to his feet again before shoving him back into the corner! Now driving the shoulder over and over again into the gut of Drake King! Over and over and now the referee starts his count!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Deadprez: MJ steps away with his hands up! The referee checks on Drake- BUT MALCOLM RUNS BACK IN WITH A KNEE TO THE GUT OF KING! And now he grabs Drake’s arm! Whips Drake to the opposite corner! WATER WHIP! MJ FOLLOWED WITH ANOTHER KNEE! Drake is hurting now and MJ is looking to capitalize! Grabs Drake by the head and turns him around! MJ pops himself up to the second rope and bounces off! TORNADO DDT PLANTS KING! Malcolm wastes no time now as he jumps on to the back of Drake King! COCAINA CLUTCH! MJ WRAPS THE ARM AROUND DRAKES THROAT FOR THE COQUINA CLUTCH! DRAKE IS FLAILING! HIS FACE IS TURNING RED! HES GASPING FOR AIR BUT CANT GET ANY! MJ ROLLS HIM TO HIS SIDE AND GRAPEVINES THE LEGS! DRAKE HAS NOWHERE TO GO! DRAKE LOOKS LIKE HE’S FADING! THE REFEREE GOES TO CHECK! THE ARM DROPS! HE CHECKING ONE MORE TIME! DROPS THE ARM!
Eve: NO! DRAKE IS AWAKE! HE’S STILL GOING! DRAKE NOW ALMOST PUNCHING WITH HIS RIGHT ARM FOR MOMENTUM AS HE GETS HIMSELF OVER TO HIS STOMACH BUT MJ IS STILL ON HIM AND THE COCAINA CLUTCH IS STILL APPLIED! BUT DRAKE NOW GETS HIS KNEES UNDER HIM AND— WHAT STRENGTH BY DRAKE KING! HES STANDING WITH MJ ON HIS BACK! MJ ONLY OUTWEIGHS HIM BY TEN POUNDS BUT EVERY OUNCE MAKES A DIFFERENCE WITH NO BLOOD IN YOUR BRAIN! DRAKE DRIVES HIMSELF BACKWARDS AND PLANTS MJ INTO THE TURNBUCKLES AS HE WRAPS ARMS AROUND THE ROPE AND FORCES THE BREAK!
Deadprez: Referee forces the clean break and both men separate but MJ comes in on Drake now and grabs him by the back of the head BEFORE RUNNING HIM SHOULDER FIRST BETWEEN THE TURNBUCKLES AND INTO THE POST! Drake now wisely rolls himself between the top and middle rope to the apron to create some space as he clutches at his shoulder! His face still red as a tomato from the choke! But Drake stays tied to the post as he doesn’t want to risk another C-Note! But MJ grabs him over the ropes now and yanks him away from the post! Drives a punch into the midsection before grabbing Drakes head! Suplex position and he lifts Drake straight up and over the rope— BUT DRAKE FLIPS THROUGH AND LANDS ON HIS FEET INSIDE THE RING! MJ TURNS AROUND INTO A SUPERKICK TO THE SHIN! DROPS HIM TO A KNEE AND DRAKE STEPS BACK AND HITS ANOTHER SUPERKICK TO THE JAW! MJ IS MOTIONLESS ON THE GROUND! DRAKE DRAGS MJ UP TO TRY AND FINISH THE JOB! SUPLEX POSITION! FALCON ARROW! KINGS WASTELAND CONNECTS! DRAKE ROLLS OVER AND HOOKS THE LEG! NEW CHAMPION!
Eve: NO! MALCOLM KICKED OUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE INSTANT! DRAKE IS BESIDE HIMSELF SCREAMING AT THE REFEREE!
Drake King (off mic): WHATS WRONG WITH YOU, YOU STUPID MOTHER FREAKER! THAT WAS THREE! THAT WAS THREE!
Eve: Drake not gonna get any favors from the referee tonight as he turns back to MJ who is still blinking himself awake after the superkick and kings wasteland! But Drake not gonna let up just yet! MJ is about up to a seated position and here comes Drake! PENALTY KICK! Clean into the back of Malcolm’s head! MJ falls over again and Drake drops on top of him! Drake grabs MJ by the skull and just bashes him repeatedly back against the mat! Drake is livid that MJ kicked out of his falcon arrow and is looking to take that frustration out on the champion! Drake now stands and drops a knee square into MJ’s chest! He uses his arms to force Malcolm’s shoulders back to the mat! Oh but MJ kicks out before the ref is even in position!
Deadprez: Gonna take more than that! Drake is looking around for what to do next and he goes and slides out of the ring. Drake— oh what’s he doing now? Drake Is searching around under the ring! He crawls underneath! He’s reaching for something! Ok now he’s completely under the apron! MJ is recovering inside the rings nd the referee is yelling for Drake to get back in before he starts the count! Wait I see movement from the apron and—
Eve: DRAKE KING HAS THE BRANDING IRON! ITS RED HOT TOO! HES GONNA LOOK TO GO BACK TO AN OLD FAVORITE OF HIS! THIS PUT RAVEN ROBERTS IN A BURN CENTER! IT HELPED DRAKE END THE CAREER OF THE HEART BREAK BOY! DRAKE SLIDES INTO THE RING!
Deadprez: Yeah but not well thought out. Drake is immediately stopped by the referee who screams at him like he’s a crazy person! The referee yanks the branding iron away and slides out of the ring to dispose of it! BUT DRAKE JUST PULLED A STEEL PIPE OUT OF HIS TIGHTS WHILE THE REFS BACK WAS TURNED! THAT WAS HIS PLAN ALL ALONG! DRAKE SWINGS THE PIPE AT MJ WHO IS BARELY TO HIS FEET!
Eve: BUT MJ DUCKS IT! HE GRABS THE HAND THAT HOLDS THE PIPE AND TWISTS IT TO PRY THE PIPE FREE! MJ TURNS IT AROUND AND CONNECTS! THE PIPE ACROSS THE SIDE OF DRAKE KINGS FACE! MJ TOSSES THE PIPE TO THE OUTSIDE JUST AS THE REFEREE TURNS AROUND TO GET BACK INTO THE RING! MJ knows he needs to capitalize here! He looks around and moves to the corner where he climbs to the top rope! MJ lines up! FIVE STAR SWAG SPLASH! HE LANDS CLEAN ACROSS DRAKES CHEST WITH THE SPLIT LEG FROG SPLASH! MJ HOOKS THE LEG!
Deadprez: HE GOT IT! NO! WAIT! THE REFEREE IS WAVING IT OFF! DRAKE MANAGED TO GRAB THE BOTTOM ROPE AT THE LAST SECOND! WHAT A MATCH! Drake is on the mat just breathing and staring up at the ceiling as MJ can’t believe that didn’t finish the match! Drake is lucky he had that position because I thought that was it! MJ looks like he’s gonna try to go for the kill! Drake reaches up and is holding his face! OH! Drake just spit a bunch of blood out! His mouth is bloodied from that pipe!! But MJ grabs him! Pulls him up and seats Drakes head between his legs! MJ GONNA GO FOR THE L TRAIN! But Drake grabs the legs and blocks it! Drake felt it coming and did what he could to stop the Canadian Destroyer! MJ tried again but Drake still has his grip! Drake goes to lift MJ up with his shoulders and dump him over his back! BUT MJ ROLLS THROUGH NOW FOR A SUNSET FLIP! BUT DRAKE ROLLS THROUGH THAT AND CONNECTS WITH A ROUNDHOUSE TO THE SIDE OF MJ’S FACE!
Eve: But MJ is already trying to get back up! He gets his feet underneath him but Drake comes from behind and tried to apply a rear naked choke! BUT MJ SPINS OUT OF IT! MJ GRABS DRAKE AND WHIPS HIM INTO THE CORNER!! GOES TO FOLLOW WITH THE KNEE! ANOTHER WATER WHIP! OH! NO!! DRAKE KING MOVED OUT OF THE WAY THIS TIME AND MJ CONNECTS HIS KNEE CLEAN ON THE TURNBUCKLE! THATS THE KNEE HE JUST RECOVERED FROM AFTER THE REVOLUTION INJURED HIM AT A LIVE EVENT! MJ DROPS IN PAIN AND IT LOOKS LIKE HE MAY HAVE JUST AGGRAVATED THAT KNEE INJURY! AND DRAKE KING LOOKS LIKE A SHARK THAT JUST SMELLED BLOOD!
Deadprez: DRAKE DROPS DOWN AND WRAPS THAT LEG UP! HE HAS A HEELHOOK APPLIED! LOOK AT HOW HES TWISTING THE INJURED KNEE OF MALCOLM! MJ IS IN MAJOR PAIN! YOU CAN ALMOST SEE THE LIGAMENTS TWISTING AND TEARING IN HIS LEG! BUT MJ ISNT QUITTING! THE TITLE MEANS TOO MUCH TO HIM! HES SCRATCHING AND CLAWING AT THE CANVAS AS HE TRIED TO DRAG BOTH MENS WEIGHT TOWARDS THE ROPES! INCH BY INCH HES DIGGING HIS WAY TO THAT BOTTOM ROPE!
Eve: OH BUT DRAKE RELEASES THE HOLD AND JUST STOMPS ON THE BACK OF MJ’S NECK AND HEAD OVER AND OVER BEFORE STOMPING ON THE KNEE! DRAKE NOW DROPS DOWN AND APPLIES A MODIFIED HEEL HOOK WITH HIS OWN KNEE DRIVING INTO THE BACK OF MJ’S WHILE WRAPPING THE INJURED KNEE AROUND IT! ALMOST SIMILAR TO THE LEG HOLD OF AN STF! THE REFEREE IS ASKING MJ IF HE WANTS TO SUBMIT!
Drake King (off mic): ASK HIM!
Referee (off mic): I am, dickhead! Chill out!
Deadprez: BUT MJ ISNT GONNA QUIT! HES SHAKING HIS HEAD WHILE HES STILL DIGGING AT THE MAT! MJ GIVING EVERYTHING HE HAS TO IGNORE THE PAIN IN HIS KNEE!
Eve: Drake releases the hold! I think he knew MJ wouldn’t submit! Now he grabs MJ’s leg and lifts him up before driving the knee straight down into the mat! Drake rolls MJ over and hooks the bad leg!
Deadprez: But Malcolm kicks out! But Drake does the same again!
Eve: Drake knows this won’t end the match! He’s forcing MJ to use all the power he has left in that leg! Drake trying to weaken the champion as much as he can! Drake has a sickening and blood soaked grin on his face as he continues to dismantle the champion here! Drake rolls Malcolm over now and— UPKICK FROM MALCOLM JONES! HE CATCHES DRAKE IN HIS ALREADY BLEEDING MOUTH WITH HIS GOOD LEG! Drake stumble aback and MJ rolls over to the ropes to pull himself up to his good knee! But Drake King is coming back! He rushes the injured champ and— UPTOWN RIDE! MJ PUSHED UP ON HIS LEGS AND HIT THE SKY HIGH! Drake bounces up but he’s stunned and MJ slaps some life into his knee before grabbing Drake’s head!
Deadprez: L TRAIN! THE CANADIAN DESTROYER CONNECTS! Drake is planted and MJ drops while clutching his hurt knee! But he knows he can’t let up yet! He rolls over and lays across Drake’s prone body!
Eve: DRAKE KICKED OUT! DRAKE ACTUALLY KICKED OUT! HES STILL ALIVE! MJ can’t believe it! He looks absolutely shocked! But he’s not stopping now! He’s pulling himself towards the ropes! MJ is pulling himself up by the turnbuckles! He grabs the top turnbuckle and slowly climbing his way to the top! Drake hasn’t moved! MJ seats himself on the top rope and now he’s massaging that knee as he gets himself stood on the top rope! He’s gonna go for the five star swag—
Deadprez: THE REVOLUTION! WHAT ARE THEY DOING OUT HERE?!? JAKE SMITH AND JOSH NICHOLLS ARE ON THE RING APRON AND MJ JUST NOTICED THEM! THE DISTRACTION JUST CAUSED MJ TO LOSE HIS BALANCE ON THE BAD KNEE! HE FALLS FROM THE TOP ROPE AND CRASHES TO THE MAT! THE REFEREE IS YELLING FOR THEM TO GO! BUT YOU KNOW THESE TWO DON’T DO ANYTHING WITHOUT EVIL INTENTIONS! THEYRE BOTH JUST GRINNING AT MALCOLM NOW AS THEY SLOWLY APPROACH!
Eve: JAX WALKER! JAX WALKER IS HERE! He said he wasn’t gonna leave MJ out to dry after they had done battle together against the Revolution! Jake and Josh are both still being yelled at by the referee as Jax slides into the ring and charges towards the Revolution!
Deadprez: WHAT THE HELL?!?
Eve: WHAT?!? JAX JUST GRABBED MALCOLM UP AND DEADLIFTED HIM! FUBAR! THE STEINER SCREWDRIVER LANDS MJ RIGHT ON HIS SKULL! THE REFEREE IS STILL ARGUING WITH THE REVOLUTION! HE HASNT SEEN ANYTHING! BUT JAX SLIDES OUT OF THE RING AND THE REVOLUTION DROP OFF THE APRON! DRAKE ROLLS OVER AND BEGINS TO PUSH HIMSELF UP TO HIS FEET WITH THAT BLOODY SMIRK ON HIS FACE! HE HAS AN ABSOLUTELY PSYCHOTIC LOOK IN HIS EYES! MJ HAS BARELY MOVED A MUSCLE SINCE THAT FUBAR! BUT DRAKE IS SCREAMING FOR HIM!
Drake King (off mic): GET UP MALCOLM! GET UP!
Deadprez: MJ DOESN’T KNOW WHERE HERE IS! HE’S PULLING HIMSELF UP BY THE ROPES BUT CAN BARELY EVEN GET TO HIS KNEES NOW! DRAKE HAS HIM LINED UP!
Eve: GUILLOTINE! THE SICK KICK CONNECTS WITH MALCOLM’S HEAD! DRAKE MAKES THE COVER!
(DING! DING! DING!)
Gina Romano: Here is your winner… AND NEW EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION… DRRRRAAAAAAKKKKEEEEEE KKKKKIIIIIIINNNNGGGGGGG!!!!!
(“Bury Me Face Down” plays again as Drake stands to his feet staring with crazy eyes and a smile into the camera as he is handed the championship, holding it over his head)
Deadprez: What did we just witness?!?
Eve: Whatever it was, it was definitely not ok! Jax Walker broke his word to Malcolm and has aligned with the Revolution who have all conspired here to work with Drake King!
(Jax, Joshua, and Jake all climb into the ring. Jax hands Drake a microphone and Josh places Drake’s custom crown on the new champions head. Jake fastens the Championship around Drakes waist. Drake spits out a fresh mouthful of blood before speaking)
Drake King: They say that sleight of hand is making one option seem so obvious that everyone misses the real answer.
Drake King: But now look what we have assembled here! I am now the crowned and proven King of EAW! I beat your reigning king! There is blood on the crown, so now I take it for myself!
(MJ is seen still motionless on the mat. Drake motions to the three men in the ring with him)
Drake King: Jake, the maverick. Joshua, the mercenary. Jax, the soldier looking for a war. Ladies and gentlemen, every king needs his knights. Let me introduce you to my Round Table. Hurricane Hawk has been so focused on what he thought was obvious that he didn’t see the truth in front of his face. And now…
(Drake gives the camera a sinister grin)
Drake King: ALL. SHALL. KNEEL… BEFORE THE KING.
Eve: OH MY GOD!
Deadprez: DRAKE KING HAS BEEN THE ONE ORCHESTRATING THE BACKSTAGE ATTACKS!
(Drake drops the microphone and the four raise their fists in the air together as the camera fades)
(Commercial for Captain Marvel, in theaters NOW!)
(Camera opens to find Hurricane Hawk pitching a fit backstage)
Hurricane Hawk: DRAKE KING?!? IT WAS DRAKE KING ALL THIS TIME?!? I THOUGHT THIS SHIT WAS OVER AFTER HE GOT HIS HANDS ON XANDER AND MYLES!!
(Leo Quinn walks up to Hawk from around a corner)
Leo Quinn: They’ve already left the building, Hawk. They’re gone.
(Hawk puts his head in his hands before turning around and overturning a catering table)
Hurricane Hawk: I won’t let it be this easy. He basically stole a championship tonight! It won’t be this easy…
(Hawk punches a hole in the wall before storming off)
(Under Siege returns and cuts to Eve and Deadprez at the broadcast booth.)
Eve: What. A. Night. I’m still honestly shook over what just happened with Drake King!
Deadprez: Same. It’s been a hell of a ride. And I can’t think of any better way to cap it off than this no-disqualification match for the EAW Championship.
Eve: After what’s been said this week between the champion, Ahren Fournier, and the challenger, Jack Haze, I don’t expect this match to be for the faint of heart.
(The cameras switch from Deadprez and Eve, to Gina Romano who’s standing inside the ring.)
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… THE FOLLOW CONTEST IS A NO-DISQUALIFICATION MATCH AND IS SCHEDULED FOOOOOOOOOOOOR…..
Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!
(The heavily distorted beginning electric guitar riff of ‘Revolution’ by The Beatles bursts through the arena sound system signalling the presence of Jack Haze. The sold-out crowd inside the Oracle Arena rise to their feet to greet the challenger.)
Deadprez: This is the biggest match of Jack Haze’s life, Eve. There is no one in this company who thought he would be in this position this early in his EAW career.
Eve: I don’t disagree. As talented as he is, I would have bet on anyone else but Jack emerging victorious from that contendership match we had a few weeks ago.
(“You say you want a revolution…” echoes throughout the building.)
Gina Romano: INTRODUCING FIRST… FROM SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA… WEIGHING IN AT 211 POUNDS… ‘THE ENLIGHTENED’ JJJJAAAAACCCCCCKKKKKKKKKK HHHHHAAAAAAAZZZZZZZZZEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
(Jack comes through the curtain and quickly approaches the very top of the entrance ramp, energetic and smiling. The crowd greets him with a mostly positive reaction. Not everyone is buying what Haze is selling, but for the most part, people seem to think he means well. He half-skips down the ramp while simultaneously tagging the hands of the fans.)
Deadprez: If this young man is feeling nervous at all, it doesn’t show on his face.
Eve: Well you heard the words he preached this week, Deadprez. As far as Jack Haze is concerned, he’s already got this match in the bag.
Deadprez: I find that hard to believe given Ahren Fournier’s pedigree and the situations he’s faced in his time here in EAW. It’s going to take A LOT for Haze to win tonight. Ahren is a former Hardcore Champion and these ty-
(Deadprez is abruptly cut off by the roar of the crowd.)
Eve: KASSIDY HEART JUST BLASTED JACK HAZE IN THE BACK WITH… A CATTLE PROD?!
(Sure enough, the Queen of Hearts has a cattle prod in her hands and she gets in a batter’s stance, swinging that thing as hard as she can! Jack’s music cuts and Kassidy lands her shot right on the kidney area of Jack Haze!)
Deadprez: JACK HAZE CRUMBLES TO THE GROUND AS KASSIDY HITS HIM IN THE KIDNEY AREA!!! KASSIDY IS MERCILESSLY BEATING HAZE WITH THAT CATTLE PROD NOW AND SHE KICKS OVER ON HIS BACK! KASSIDY RAISES THAT THING IN THE AIR AND SHE BRINGS IT DOWN ACROSS THE CHEST OF HAZE!!!!
Eve: KASSIDY DRIVES THE CATTLE PROD INTO HAZE’S CHEST AND NOW SHE’S SHOCKING HIM!!! THE ELECTRICITY FLOWING THROUGH THAT THING HAS JACK HAZE WITHERING AROUND ON THE GROUND IN PAIN!!!!
Deadprez: BUT WHERE THE HELL IS THE CHAMPION?! WHERE IS AHREN FOURNIER?!
(Kassidy pulls Jack Haze up by the hair and sends him crashing into the steel ring steps. The audience doesn’t even know how to react at this point because this is not the way they pictured this match starting at all. Kassidy twirls the cattle prod like a baton, before slipping inside the ring and snatching the microphone from Gina.)
Kassidy Heart: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR THE GREATEST EAW CHAMPION OF ALL TIME…. THE GOAT… THE MOTHER FUCKING STARBOY…. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHRRRRRREEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNN FFFFFFFOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRNNNNNNNIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRR!!!!!!
(‘Starboy’ by The Weekend begins to blast throughout the building. The crowd reacts accordingly which is with heavy booing. That only intensifies when the majestic and flawless GOAT himself steps through the curtains. Ahren is dressed to the nines, in a beautiful snow-white fur coat made from the finest polar bear hide and black leather pants made from dozens of slaughtered baby cows, who had the choice to become a plate of veal or ring attire for the GOAT of GOATS. Needless to say, those sweet animals made the the right decision.)
Eve: This man literally makes me want to become a vegan. He’s awful.
(Ahren has the EAW Championship in one hand, and he’s dragging out a metal trash can full of weapons, including his trademark umbrella, with the other hand. As the camera zooms in closer, everyone gets a chance to see that the EAW Championship is wrapped in barbed wire.)
Deadprez: Welp. It’s going to be one of those matches I see.
Eve: You mean a trash match like they have on Voltage?
(Ahren pauses on the stage and slowly turns around, letting everyone get a good look at him from every single angle.)
Eve: What’s that written on the back of Ahren’s coat, Deadprez?
Deadprez: I believe it says… ‘I Killed Lennon.’
Eve: :snoop: for fuck’s sake.
(FINALLY, Ahren makes his way to the ring, pausing long enough to look at Jack Haze who is starting to recover from being blindsided. The champion laughs maniacally, places his trash can full of weapons on the opposite side of the ring, and climbs inside. Kassidy takes a moment to point out the message on the back of Ahren’s coat while he hands the barbed wire wrapped championship to the official in charge of the match. Kassidy removes Ahren’s jacket from his shoulders and folds it up, before slipping out of the ring and taking her place on the outside. The official walks over to the ropes and looks down at Haze, who manages to throw him a thumbs up sign. The audience pops huge for that. Ahren’s music fades out and the official calls for the bell.)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)
Deadprez: On the outside of the ring, Jack Haze is getting back to his feet. Ahren sees this and immediately rushes towards the ropes, using them for momentum. The GOAT looks to take Jack out with a baseball slide, but Haze side steps it! Ahren lands on his feet and Jack swings wildly… already looking to connect with the Pineapple Punch!!! Ahren ducks though! Ahren gets his foot up and connects with Jack’s midsection!!! Jack doubles over and Ahren begins hammering away on the neck and back of Jack Haze!
Eve: BUT HAZE WITH THE LOW BLOW!!!!
Deadprez: Ahren drops to his knees and Jack slams his fist into Ahren’s face!
Eve: Jack with a series of stiff right hands to Ahren’s face and he makes his way back to his feet now. Jack grabs Ahren by his man bun and looks to drive him face first into the ring post!!! Ahren manages to get his foot up! He nails Jack with an elbow! Jack lets go, and Ahren whips around, looking to connect with a clothesline! Jack ducks and slips behind Ahren, grabbing him around the waist! Ahren blocks the German suplex attempt and throws another elbow. It grazes Jack’s temple, and Ahren unlocks Jack’s hands from around his waist.
Deadprez: Ahren with the take down on the outside of the ring and he grabs Jack in a front face lock! Ahren doesn’t lock it in all the way though because the former amateur wrestler Jack Haze is able to slip out, grab Ahren in a front face lock of his own and get him into a reverse crossface position! Jack flips over, throwing Ahren over, and wraps his legs around Ahren’s torso!!! Jack positions his arms around Ahren’s neck, looking to choke him out, but Ahren is somehow able to roll them both over!!
Eve: Jack lets go and both of our competitors get back to their feet. Ahren unleashes a shoot style kick to Jack and catches him in the thigh! Jack fires back with a kick of his own. The two start exchanging these kicks now but MMA style offense is Ahren’s speciality!
Deadprez: Jack is holding his own though as these two Showdown Elitists trade kicks back and forth!
Eve: Jack finally drops Ahren down to a knee and he places his next kick right across Ahren’s face!!!! Ahren falls forward and Jack grabs him up by the hair. He places his arm around Ahren’s neck, grabbing him in a standing guillotine choke!
Deadprez: Ahren grabs Jack by the wrist and pulls at it, alleviating some of the pressure of that choke! The GOAT takes his other arm and drapes it across Jack, putting his full bodyweight on Jack! Jack is unable to pull up on that choke and take the champ out because he’s having to support Ahren and hold him up right now! Ahren steps to the side and slams his knee into Jack’s! Ahren takes Jack down to the ground. The choke is broken and Ahren begins hammering away on Jack Haze!!! He starts dropping those elbows into Jack’s face!!!!
Eve: The Champ doesn’t let up until he sees the first sign of blood!!!! He’s busted Jack Haze’s nose open and that brings a smirk to his face. Ahren gets up and grabs Jack up by hair! He bounces Jack’s face off the apron of the ring and throws him inside! Ahren climbs onto the apron and shouts at Kassidy to hand him a weapon.
Deadprez: Kassidy is digging around in that trash can now and she hands Ahren…
Eve: A GLASS BONG SHAPED LIKE BUDDHA!!!!
Deadprez: Ahren climbs back inside the ring and nails Jack Haze in the back of the head with that bong!
Ahren Fournier (Off Mic): Peace and love, motherfucker.
Eve: The champ looks at that bong in disgust and shakes his head. Here’s a fun fact for all of you. Our EAW Champion is straight edge.
Deadprez: Ahren slams that bong into Jack’s skull once again!!!
Eve: Jack is down and Ahren kicks him in the ribs, before turning him over, and placing his foot across Jack Haze’s chest.
Deadprez: The official drops down and begins to count…
Eve: Jack Haze gets his shoulder up! Not that that arrogant ass cover was ever going to put him away…
Deadprez: Ahren thought it would though! Look at the GOAT’s face. He looks down at Jack, who’s gotten himself into a sitting position, and Ahren grips that bong… AND HE SPIKES IT INTO THE MAT!!!
Eve: It shatters and there’s glass inside the ring now! Ahren spreads it around with his foot before grabbing Jack and getting in position for a DDT!!!! Ahren is looking to spike Jack’s head into that glass….
Deadprez: BUT JACK IS FIGHTING BACK!!! He’s punching Ahren in the stomach and that forces Ahren to let go!!! IT’S JACK WHO GRABS AHREN IN A DDT POSITION AND HE SEES THE PILE OF GLASS!!! JACK POSITIONS THE GOAT OVER THAT GLASS AND HE DRIVES AHREN’S HEAD RIGHT INTO IT!!!
Eve: JACK HAZE GETS TO HIS KNEES AND GRABS AHREN, TURNING HIM OVER AND GOING FOR THE COVER!!!!
Deadprez: AHREN KICKS OUT!!!!
Eve: JACK CLIMBS ON TOP OF AHREN AND STARTS STRIKING HIM WITH THOSE CLOSED FIST PUNCHES!!!! AHREN IS BLEEDING FROM THE FOREHEAD AND JACK IS DOING WHATEVER HE CAN TO OPEN THAT WOUND UP FURTHER!!! HAZE LOOKS TO THE SIDE AND GRABS A PIECE OF GLASS AND HE LITERALLY STABS AHREN IN THE HEAD WITH IT!!!!! :damn:
Eve: Jack gets up and he throws Ahren into the corner!!! Jack rushes towards the champ and Ahren eats a running knee strike to the face!!!! Jack backs up, runs forward again… another running knee strike!!! Jack begins stomping away at Ahren and he forces him into a sitting position!!! JACK IS STOMPING ON AHREN’S FACE NOW!!! BLOOD IS POURING DOWN AHREN’S FACE NOW!!!!
Deadprez: He still looks photogenic AF though.
Eve: Uhhh okay.
Deadprez: Jack lifts up Ahren, nails him with an uppercut, and whips him across the ring! Ahren’s back slams into the opposite set of turnbuckles and Jack rushes forward!!! Ahren eats that corner clothesline and Jack grabs Ahren, snapmaring him into a sitting position!!! Jack drives his knee into the back of Ahren’s head a few times before dropping down and grabbing the GOAT by both arms. Jack forces his knee into Ahren’s back and bends those arms back, putting a lot of pressure on Ahren right now.
Eve: This is smart on Jack’s part though. As rough as this match has been so far, slowing down the pace and wearing down Ahren is a great strategy.
Deadprez: Jack switches to a modified choke now, wrapping his forearm tightly around Ahren’s neck. Ahren is doing what he can to reverse the hold, but right now Jack has him positioned perfectly. They’re away from the ropes, not that Ahren could force a break anyway! For all his ego though, Ahren still has the fight and heart of a champion and he’s trying to get his feet underneath of him. Jack lets go of the choke and gets back up. He nails Ahren between the shoulder blades with a kick and steps over him. Jack rushes the ropes and propels himself forward, landing a perfect basement style dropkick!
Eve: Ahren falls back and that allows Jack to hook the leg and go for another cover!!!
Deadprez: Ahren powers out!!!
Eve: Jack sits back and thinks for a moment.
Deadprez: He’s slipping outside the ring now and reaching under it!!!
Eve: JACK HAZE IS PULLING OUT A LADDER!!!!
Deadprez: HERE COMES KASSIDY HEART!!!!
Eve: JACK LOOKS AT KASSIDY AND HE’S THREATENING TO HIT HER WITH THAT LADDER!!! THE UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPION PUTS ON THE BREAKS AND THROWS HER HANDS UP! SHE WANTS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT LADDER!!!! JACK TURNS HIS ATTENTION AWAY FROM KASS-
Deadprez: BASEBALL SLIDE BY AHREN!!!!
Eve: THAT LADDER SLAMS BACK INTO JACK’S FACE AND HE’S DOWN!!!! AHREN TAKES A MOMENT TO RECOVER BEFORE GETTING OUT OF THE RING!!! HE WALKS OVER TO JACK HAZE AND MAKES SURE THAT LADDER IS POSITIONED PERFECTLY.
Deadprez: KASSIDY DUTIFULLY HANDS THE GOAT A CHAIR AND AHREN RAISES IT ABOVE HIS HEAD!!! HE SLAMS THE CHAIR DOWN ON THE PART OF THE LADDER THAT IS COVERING JACK’S FACE AND IF HIS NOSE WASN’T ALREADY BROKEN EARLIER IN THE MATCH, I’M SURE IT IS NOW!!!!
Eve: AHREN SLAMS THE CHAIR DOWN AGAIN! AND AGAIN!
Crowd: FOUR!!!! FIVE!!!!! SIX!!!!!! SEVEN!!!!!!! EIGHT!!!!!!! NINE!!!!!!!! TEN!!!!!!!!!!
Deadprez: AHREN DROPS THE CHAIR AND GRABS THE LADDER!!! HE PUSHES IT INTO THE RING AND PULLS JACK UP BY THE CHEST HAIR!!!! AHREN SLAMS JACK’S FACE OFF THE APRON OF THE RING AND ROLLS HIM IN!!! THE GOAT GOES RIGHT FOR THAT LADDER AND LAYS IT IN THE CORNER. HE REACHES DOWN AND LOCKS HIS ARMS AROUND JACK’S WAIST, DEADLIFTING HIM UP…
Eve: RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!!!
Deadprez: JACK HAZE JUST SLAMMED INTO THE LADDER!!!
Eve: Ahren screams at Kassidy to get his umbrella and Kassidy slides it into the ring! Ahren takes it over to Jack and starts beating the shit out of him with it! Ahren drops down, grabs a dazed Jack Haze, and places that umbrella across the throat.
Deadprez: Jack is kicking and thrashing, trying to get out of the choke, but Ahren is merciless. Jack Haze is fading and the official is checking on him.
Eve: Ahren lets go and slams Jack into the mat. He drops the umbrella and walks back over to the ladder. Ahren grabs the ladder and brings it over to Jack, dropping it down across Jack’s chest, and taking a seat on it. The champ screams at the official to count, and well, Jack’s shoulders are on the mat.
Deadprez: Jack gets his shoulder up!!!!
Eve: That is the second arrogant cover Ahren has gone for in this match and I find it hard to believe that he is still underestimating Jack Haze at this point. Everything Ahren has thrown at Jack so far, Jack has handled, and he still has plenty of fight left!!!!
Kassidy Heart (Off Mic): Ahren!!!
Deadprez: Oh no….NO!!! NO!!!!!
Eve: KASSIDY HAS SAT A BLACK BAG ON THE APRON!!!
Deadprez: Ahren walks over to the bag and picks it up.
Crowd: YYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSS GOAT YYYYAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
Eve: And there it is…
Deadprez: Ahren Fournier just dumped like a million thumbtacks out into the ring!!!!
Eve: Now Ahren is heading back over to that ladder!!! Ahren is setting up the ladder and this doesn’t really bode well for Jack Haze. I don’t know what in the world the EAW Champion has planned, but it’s probably not going to end well.
Deadprez: Ahren grabs Jack and he pulls him over to that ladder. He slams Jack’s face off one of those steps and tries to do it again.
Eve: Jack blocks it though and he fights back with a series of elbows!!! Jack takes a step up the ladder now and begins scratching and clawing his way to the top!!! Ahren follows him though… but eats a boot to the face for his efforts!!!!
Deadprez: Both of these men are covered in blood but this battle is far from over! Jack has made it to the top of the ladder but Ahren is right on his heels!!! Ahren catches Jack in the back with a punch to the kidney area, and Jack is forced to step over the side of the ladder!! Ahren catches Jack in the side with a punch to the ribcage!!! Jack finishes stepping over though and is now on the opposite side of the ladder!!! Ahren climbs up the last few rungs and now the two are even!
Deadprez: Both men are face to face now! The cameras aren’t picking up what they’re saying though!
Eve: IT’S JACK WHO THROWS THE FIRST PUNCH THOUGH!!!
Deadprez: AHREN FIRES BACK!!!
Eve: JACK RAKES AHREN ACROSS THE FACE AND STRIKES HIM WITH A SERIES OF VIOLENT HEADBUTTS!!! AHREN SLIPS DOWN A FEW RUNGS AND MANAGES TO CATCH HIMSELF!!! HOW IS JACK ABLE TO BE ON OFFENSE RIGHT NOW?!
Deadprez: He probably popped a handful of pills before coming out here to numb himself…
Eve: JACK GRABS AHREN BY THE HAIR, DRAGS HIM BACK UP THE RUNGS, AND SLAMS HIS FACE OFF THE TOP OF THE LADDER!!!! JACK DOES REPEATS THAT SEVERAL MORE TIMES BEFORE AHREN STARTS TO SLIP!!! THE GOAT MANAGES TO HANG ON AND JACK HAS A WILD LOOK IN HIS EYES!!!!
Eve: JACK LOOKS OUT AT THE CROWD NOW AND HE’S TAKING A MOMENT TO ABSORB THEIR ENERGY!!! NOW JACK IS LOOKING AT AHREN….
Deadprez: OH FUCK….
Crowd: :damn: :damn: damn:
Deadprez: JACK WITH THE SUNSET FLIP OFF THE LADDER… AND THE EAW CHAMPION LANDS ON HIS BACK ON ALL OF THOSE THUMBTACKS!!!!!
Crowd: HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT!
Eve: JACK HAZE THROWS HIMSELF ON TOP OF AHREN FOURNIER!!!!
Deadprez: AHREN GOT HIS SHOULDER UP!!!! AHREN FOURNIER GOT HIS SHOULDER UP!!!!
Eve: Kassidy Heart looks horrified right now on the outside of the ring! She, as well as everyone else inside this building, knows that they almost just saw the mother of all upsets here in EAW. Holy shit.
Deadprez: Jack Haze looks shocked that Ahren was able to get his shoulder up. He seems a little unsure of what to do now. Jack picks himself up and gets back to his feet. He goes over to the corner and pulls the ladder down! Jack is folding up the ladder, while Ahren is finally able to sit up.
Eve: Ahren must have dozens of thumbtacks stuck in his back right now…
Deadprez: Jack is folding up that ladder though and he’s picking it up! He is screaming at Ahren to get up! I think Jack wants to use that ladder as a battering ram!!
Eve: Ahren is quick to roll himself out of the ring and he drops to the mat. Kassidy Heart scurries over to his side and kneels down to check on him.
Deadprez: JACK HAZE IS OUT OF THE RING THOUGH AND HE’S RUSHING OVER TO THE TIMEKEEPER’S AREA!!! HE SNATCHES THE EAW CHAMPIONSHIP UP AND HOLDS IT IN THE AIR!!!!
Eve: THE CROWD IS GOING NUTS RIGHT NOW AND JACK BRINGS THAT BELT CLOSE TO HIS FACE. HE TAKES A LOOK AT THE BARBED WIRE THAT’S COVERING THE BELT AND A WICKED SMILE CROSSES HIS FACE!!!!
Deadprez: KASSIDY IS HELPING AHREN UP!!!!
Eve: JACK TAKES OFF RUNNING!!!!
Deadprez: KASSIDY AND AHREN TURN AROUND!!!!!
Eve: JACK IS LOOKING TO SLAM THAT CHAMPIONSHIP INTO AHREN’S FACE!!!!
Deadprez: AHREN PULLS KASSIDY IN FRONT OF HIM!!!!
Eve: KASSIDY HEART LETS OUT A SCREAM!!!!
Eve: JACK SOMEHOW STOPS HIMSELF!!!! AHREN SHOVES KASSIDY FORWARD AND SHE SLAMS INTO JACK!!!! AHREN GRABS HIS CHAMPIONSHIP!!! JACK CATCHES KASSIDY AND THROWS HER TO THE SIDE!!!! AHREN LOOKS TO SLAM JACK IN THE FACE WITH THE TITLE!!!!
Deadprez: JACK DUCKS!!!! JACK DUCKS!!!!
Eve: AHREN’S MOMENTUM SENDS HIM FORWARD!!!! JACK GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND!!! JACK LIFTS AHREN UP IN POSITION FOR THE ACID DROP!!!!!
Deadprez: JACK JUST DROPPED AHREN ONTO THE STEEL RING STEPS!!!!!!
Eve: BUT THEY’RE STILL ON THE OUTSIDE AND JACK HAS TO GET AHREN BACK IN THE RING TO PIN HIM!!!!
Deadprez: JACK IS HAMMERING AWAY ON AHREN RIGHT NOW AND THE CHAMPION IS DEFENSELESS!!! HE IS COMPLETELY AT THE MERCY OF JACK HAZE AND WE COULD VERY WELL END UP WITH A NEW EAW CHAMPION!!!!
Eve: JACK FINALLY GETS UP AND HE THROWS A PEACE SIGN UP AT THE CROWD!!! HE GRABS AHREN AND THROWS HIM BACK INSIDE THE RING. HE ROLLS AHREN TO THE CENTER OF THE RING… IN THE MIDDLE OF THOSE THUMBTACKS AND THAT BROKEN GLASS FROM EARLIER, AND HE POINTS TO THE TOP ROPE!!!!
Deadprez: JACK IS GOING TO FINISH AHREN OFF WITH UP IN SMOKE!!!!
Eve: JACK CLIMBS TO THE TOP AND GETS HIMSELF SET!!!!
Deadprez: JACK HAZE LEAPS OFF THE TOP ROPE!!!! DIVING ELBOW DROP!!!!!
Eve: KASSIDY!!! KASSIDY!!!!
Deadprez: KASSIDY PULLS AHREN OUT OF HARMS WAY AND JACK CRASHES TO THE MAT!!!!
Eve: KASSIDY IS SHAKING THE GOAT, SLAPPING HIS CHEEK, AND SCREAMING AT HIM TO GET BACK INTO THIS MATCH!!!! SHE REACHES INTO HER TOP AND PULLS OUT A PAIR OF BRASS KNUX!!!!
Deadprez: Them double DDs be keepin’ shit hidden!
Eve: She slips the brass knux onto Ahren’s hand and helps him back to his feet!!!! Jack Haze is crawling over to the corner now, using the ropes to pull himself up!!! Ahren forces himself forward and he drives a knee into the back of Jack Haze!!!! Jack falls back to the mat and Ahren grabs him up!!!! PROTECT YA NE-

Eve: JACK GRABS AHREN AND HE’S GOT HIM IN POSITION FOR ANOTHER ACID DROP.
Deadprez: BUT KASSIDY IS BACK AND SHE’S GOT THE CATTLE PROD AGAIN!!!

Deadprez: JACK HAS ONE HAND WRAPPED AROUND KASSIDY’S THROAT AND HE RIPS THAT CATTLE PROD FROM HER HAND WITH HIS OTHER!!!!!

Eve: AHREN FOURNIER WINS!!!!
Gina Romano: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… YOUR WINNER AND STILL EAW WORLD CHAMPION…. AHREN FOURNIER!!!!!
(‘Starboy’ by The Weekend begins to blare across the public address system once again, and the crowd erupts in a mixture of cheers and jeers. Jeers because they hate Ahren Fournier with a fucking passion, but cheers because of the hellacious match they just witnessed.)
Eve: That… that was…
Deadprez: That was a hell of a win for Ahren Fournier. I don’t even know what else to say. There’s something inside of that man that is very dark, and very unhinged and it was on full display here tonight, especially at the end when he drove that cattle prod into Jack’s forehead.
(The official has been given the EAW Championship and when it’s handed back to Ahren, the champion ignores the fact it’s covered with barbed wire and cradles it to his chest.)
Eve: I can’t help but respect the fight that Jack Haze put up here tonight. There’s not a single person in this company who gave him any chance of winning this match but his belief in himself never wavered. He came so close to walking away with the EAW Championship tonight and I doubt this is the last time we see him compete for EAW’s biggest prize.
Deadprez: What a fucking show. Between the classic between TLA and Big Bhris, that violent bullrope match, Drake King, and now this match! :whew:
Eve: I’m shook.
(Ahren finally rolls out of the ring, and holds his championship up in the air. He takes a look at the carnage inside the ring and a smile crosses his face. He retained the championship and he did by any means necessary.)
Eve: What a night it has been for us here in Oakland, California! There will certainly be a lot to answer for as we now set our sights on Grand Rampage just a few weeks away! For Deadprez, I’m Eve, thank you all for joining us!
