2018 EAW Hall of Fame ceremony (FULL EVENT)

( EAW Intro plays )

(We get a few highlights of the EAW Hall of Fame red carpet event that took place earlier, and we cut to the outside of the T-Mobile Arena in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada. We enter the inside of the venue where a stage is set with fans in the rafters and the stands, as well as dozens of EAW Elitists and executives along with their families and friends occupying the floor seats. There is also a large banner in the rafters with the image of Brody Sparks. )

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen…. WELCOME TO THE 2018 EAW HALL OF FAME CEREMONY!!!

( The arena applauds, and we get chants of “THANK YOU BRODY!” from the audience. )

Announcer: Please welcome this year’s Hall of Fame Host, he is the COMMISSIONER OF SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE, MATHIEU “CAPTAIN CHARISMA” DANIELS!!!!!

( “Waves” by Kanye West hits and the arena gives a big ovation for Commissioner Matt Daniels as he walks out to the stage with his hair neatly combed, dressed in a well-tailored black suit. He walks up to the microphone and does his patented “peep search” until his music dies down. )

Commissioner Daniels: WAZZAUP EAW UNIVERSE!!!! WELCOME TO THE 9TH EVER EDITION OF THE E-A-DUBYA HALL OF FAAAAMEEEEE!!!!

( CC leads the crowd in cheers. )

Daniels: It feels wonderful to be here once again with the EAW family, and it’s an even better feeling not to be completely stoned out of my mind like I was last year. We definitely had to make it a “thing” last year not to get too gone off the shits, but then again being backstage in the same locker room as Eclipse Diemos will do that to you. Man that guy was a creep.

The EAW family has been through so much this season and the fact that despite all of the trials and tribulations, we are still heading into Pain for Pride Festival — a FOUR DAY extravaganza — with arguably more momentum than I’ve ever seen? It’s incredible. Absolutely incredible. It never ceases to amaze me how powerful the EAW machine is, and this machine is nothing without the loyalty of the people. No matter what drama has gone down, no matter what losses we’ve suffered, EAW has still remained the brand that the fans trust through it all. That shit is powerful!

Tonight we’re going to celebrate a handful of peeps who, by being a part of the EAW community have made this brand and this company stronger. Tonight we are inducting, in my view, one of the strongest Hall of Fame classes that I can remember; because this time around there it is beyond all reasonable doubt (see what I did there?) that these individuals are all deserving of being celebrated. EAW wouldn’t be the same without these men and women, and we will hear from the people who’s lives and careers they have touched. So why don’t we kick things off shall we???

Let’s get a look at our first inductee!

( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECwwBK-5MA0 )

( The video package comes to an end and the camera returns to the stage. )

Announcer: Introducing the person inducting Vic Vendetta into the Hall of Fame! … LUUUUCIANNNNNN BLACK!!!!!

( ‘Only One Way’ by Code Orange plays and Lucian Black walks out onto the stage wearing an all black tuxedo. He walks to the podium and gives a quick wave to the crowd before his music dies down. )

Lucian Black: It fills me with the utmost joy to stand here before you all tonight to honor the career and legacy of the man known as Vic Vendetta.

(The crowd in attendance applauds)

Lucian: Time flies, doesn’t it? It feels like just yesterday Victor, ADV and I were going from town to town in a car which I usually paid the rent for —

(The crowd laughs as Lucian lets out a smile)

Lucian: Cracking jokes, sharing our goals and dreams with one another, wondering what the future had in store for each of us. Obviously one of us went on to become a multi-time World Champion, a hall of famer and a legend. Everyone knows the name Alexander Da Vinci. I’m personally still looking to accomplish a lot I haven’t. And Vic Vendetta… Well, tonight Victor takes his rightful place among the greats.

(The crowd once again applauds and cheers)

Lucian: We faced off under different circumstances many times throughout our careers. However, our first encounter nine years ago will always be unforgettable to me. It was a tag team match between the team of ADV and myself, Revolution 5.5 and the team of Vic Vendetta and a guy that went by the name of Jason Sanders. On that night Vic Vendetta showed he was built for this for the first time. He didn’t just impress the fans or the EAW management, he impressed Alexander and myself too. From that point forward the three of us became really good friends. Since then this guy has proven that if you have a goal here in EAW and you’re willing to go the extra mile, it doesn’t matter how bleak your situation looks, you will accomplish just that. That is why this man will always be recognized as a world champion in this company.

Ladies and gentlemen, please raise and give the newest member of the EAW Hall of Fame the standing ovation that he deserves, because I know he’s going to come out here and try to be humble about this but you can DAMN BELIEVE he deserves every bit of this. GIVE IT UP FOR VIC VENDETTA!!!

( “Stroke God, Millionaire” by Dance Gavin Dance hits and Vic Vendetta walks out dressed in a custom suit to embrace Lucian Black with a big hug. Vic raises a fist to the audience who give him a big standing ovation, and he takes the podium looking around with a warm smile on his face. )

Vic Vendetta: Thank you everyone. I definitely don’t intend to come out and monopolize everyone’s time, originally I was just going to take my ring in the mail and let some of the others have their shine. After all what is there to say about the career of Vic Vendetta? I don’t know really, there isn’t much… but apparently there’s a time requirement on these things so I have to come up with something. HMMM…

Vic: My career was very black and white.

( Vic pauses for a few moments, hoping for laughter )

Vic: I can’t lie, that was a pre-written joke. I hope there’s enough of you out old enough to get that one hahaha. But… really though folks, seriously, in the most humble way possible, I mean it. My career wasn’t all that extraordinary compared to some of the other names you see in this prestigious hall, I was genuinely surprised to get the call a t first.

Vic: Surprised yes, but also honored. Honored to receive that call, honored to be up here, honored to represent the 2018 Hall of Fame Class. I’m also blessed, and I’m sure you’re going to be hearing that word a lot tonight and after a while it’s gonna get nauseating, but it’s true. So many people would like to do what we do, only a fraction ever get to, and out of that fraction, an even smaller fraction are able to find the success that I have, yes, I’m blessed. I had a list of names, a list of people that I wanted to thank but I was told I couldn’t bring it out because it was too long. BANKS JUST HAS TO HAVE EVERYTHING HIS WAY!!!! But… there are a few people that I do need to thank, CM Banks of course being one of them for giving me the opportunity to do this, to be me. I wouldn’t exist without you, this event wouldn’t exist without you, none of this would exist without YOU. I’d also like to thank Mr. DEDEDE, The Heart Break Boy, The Prince of Phenomenal, Extreme Enigma, Scott Diamond, and any other writer who’s helped me along the way, who helped me carve out this career. …

… I was gonna mention a few more by name but I’m not exactly sure what kind of clearance I have. Since they took my list away, it’s probably not high.

Vic: I’ll spare you the obligatory thank you’s to my family and to God, nobody wants to hear that.

Vic: You know, my first run in EAW, it was a good one, I was happy with it, I was content… but my second run? That’s what tonight is about, that’s why I’m allowed to stand here tonight, allowed to call myself a Hall of Famer. I take great pride in that run, because it was a rarity… or else I consider it to be one. How many people can have a long, respectable career… leave, come back, and then be better than they were before? This is where the humbleness starts to fly out the window a little bit, because I can’t think of one really. Some come back and they’re just as good, or nearly as good… but so clearly better? After such a long hiatus? There really isn’t a name that comes to my mind who’s done that other than me. It’s another thing that I take great pride in. I was able to win the EAW Championship, I was able to main event a Pain For Pride, I was able to do all these amazing things, have all of these incredible experiences during that second run in 2014 and 2015, and I made sure that I took none of them for granted…

… but then I cut my hair, and nothing was the same after that…

… I guess that’s what held all the power. :shrug:

Vic: In closing I’d just like to say to everyone out there, don’t ever give up, as cliché as it may sound, don’t do it. If you think you aren’t good enough, stop thinking that. If you don’t think you can cut it, cut it. If you put your mind to it, it will be. That’s what they call the law of attraction, allowing your thoughts to become things. Never allow yourself to say no when an urge to do something creeps up inside you, if I did that I wouldn’t be here today. I wouldn’t have won the 24/7 Battle Royal after years of dormancy, I wouldn’t be a former EAW Champion, I wouldn’t be a Hall of Famer, I wouldn’t be… I guess they call it

“Immortal.”

Thank you.

( The Hall of Fame classical music plays and Vic Vendetta walks off stage and over to the red carpet portion, where he is handed his solid gold Hall of Fame ring in a mahogany and lavender container and poses for pictures with his family. Commissioner Daniels walks back on stage. )

Commissioner Daniels: I’ve known Vic for close to 10 years now and let me tell you, he’s one of the most humble people you will ever meet. It’s really cool to see him honored like this man, really cool. Next up on the list!

( CC holds up notes. )

Daniels: AWWW MAN, LET THE STAT-PADDING BEGIN!

( Daniels laughs. )

Daniels: I got jokes I got jokes. On the real though, this group of trailblazers were responsible for producing the definitive faces of multiple eras here in Elite Answers Wrestling, and all four of these individuals will be receiving their SECOND EAW Hall of Fame rings! Ladies and Gentlemen let’s take a look at the next inductees for the 2018 EAW Hall of Fame… GENERATION GENESIS!!!!

( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5E4wf1_SQA )

( We see Cameron Ella Ava in a confessional. )

Cameron Ella Ava: I feel like if there wasn’t a Generation Genesis, there will be no teams like Project EGO and Hexa-gun. There will be no standard for these other stables to reach. This is a stable consisted of men that contributed and left their legacy in EAW – Impact. Hurricane Hawk, Lethal Consequences and CM Banks. All highly deserving of this amazing achievement. This should have happened years ago and the fact that it hasn’t was shocking, but at least, justice is served and we finally get you guys in the Hall of Fame! Congratulations, could not go to a deserving stable like Generation Genesis!

( We cut back open to the stage. )

Announcer: Introducing the man who will be inducting the Generation Genesis into the EAW Hall of Fame, he is the GENERAL MANAGER OF FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY, STARRRRR STAANNNNNN!!!!

( “2nd Sucks” by A Day To Remember hits, and Starr Stan walks out to the stage in a tan colored suit with a big smile on his face despite bags under his eyes. He salutes the crowd who give him a huge ovation in return, and he takes the podium — waiting until the music dies down before he gets a chance to speak. )

Starr Stan: Thank you EAW Universe! First of all WHO’S READY FOR PAIN FOR PRIDE TOMORROW?

( The crowd gives a massive pop. )

Starr: Me too man, me too. Can’t wait to get this godforsakened season over with. EAW is the most amazing company in the world and we have been working tirelessly, especially me, to make sure Pain for Pride is as spectacular as advertised — if not MORE. Seriously you guys I’ve been up for literally three days working non stop, I’ve been averaging about a good 3 hours of sleep each night this month, but the energy that the EAW audience brings is what motivates all of us to work as hard as we do. Tonight I have the distinct honor and pleasure of inducting four men who have worked their asses off in similar fashion to become legends in this industry, but more importantly what we’re honoring is the power of “collaboration.”

You see, EAW Is a big reflection of life, and in life a lot of your success depends on who you know as much as it does how gifted and talented you are. In life we all need a helping hand, a way to reach out to one another, we all need to be able to take constructive criticism and advice and have a core group of individuals around us who make us BETTER — not worse. When you look at Banks, Impact, Hawk and LC, the four of them as a unit created a force that I personally witnessed with my own eyes DOMINATE this company. And unlike many stables in EAW’s lore, they didn’t do so by being a carbon copy of another group or trying to rip the next man’s idea off, they became successful because they had a concept and they had a goal. And every day was another step closer to that goal.

When you look back the name “Generation Genesis” is so appropriate for these group of individuals, because their debuts spanned across multiple quote-unquote “generations” of EAW history and their debuts have all been the result of a “genesis”, if you will, of four incredible stories as individuals. The fact they were able to come together for that Season 3 and create such a dominant force is enough to put them in alone, but the after effects are what really get you. This group brought about the dominance of CM Banks in his prime, it brought a new life into Impact’s career and set his path in motion to become the most accomplished Elitist ever, it revitalized Lethal Consequences to earn his spot as a Hall of Famer contrary to some dickeating opinions — and last but not least, it helped Hurricane Hawk start his career running and boy did Hawk hold this place down during EAW’s 5th season. I’m proud of all four of these men, and thankfully the stars aligned for them to accomplish what they accomplished. So enough of my blabbering, let’s give a VERY WARM WELCOME TO FOUR PILLARS OF THIS COMPANY… THE GENERATION GENESIS!!!!!

( “Shock The World” by Lloyd Banks hits, and all four members of Generation Genesis: Ronn Banks, Hurricane Hawk, Lethal Consequences and Impact all walk out to the stage dressed in gucci suits, and being escorted by models. Starr steps to the side clapping for them, and he takes his leave as the Genesis all stand by the microphone podium. )

Ronn Banks: Thank you!

( The crowd gives a BIG ovation, and the four of them step back looking around at the raucous crowd who are giving them a ton of fanfare. Hurricane Hawk is the first to step up to the podium. )

Hurricane Hawk: I’ll go first of the rest of you guys don’t mind. It is with great honor that I accept this award alongside a couple of great men I once stood on top of the world with. Men that I can call my brothers. When I first started out here in EAW I would have never thought that one day I would be a Hall of Famer, let alone a two time Hall of Famer. I did a lot of great things in my career, I went on to capture world championships and other accomplishments like the 24/7 battle royal and the Cash in the Vault. It is very safe to say that none of that would have been possible had it not been for the time I spent here in Generation Genesis because this is what set everything off.

Banks took me under his wing when I was just a rookie even though he didn’t have to, he could have chosen anybody else but he chose me. He gave me the ball and I ran with it and we made this group the best we could. I wanna shout out Impact and LC as well for being great stablemates and legends in their own right. It’s safe to say that we are the best stable to ever enter this company. That’s just my opinion.

I would like to thank DEDEDE for also giving me a chance, giving me chance after chance over the years despite the setbacks and being really the only board member at the time who believed in me. I know I let you guys down a lot but some things have unfortunately been beyond my control and if I could have had it my way, I would have been in EAW for a consistent period of time over the years continuing my reign of dominance. Thank you for understanding though Ryan, you too Banks, when people tried to keep me away from this company only real friends vouched for me and I’ll always be thankful for that.

I’ll always be thankful for EAW period. I’m really glad I went through EAW because I don’t know how my life would be without it. I made a lot of friends and learned a lot of valuable lessons. I’m glad EAW has been able to go into the transition that it’s went through over the past few months and I’m excited to see how it continues to grow in the future under this great new management. I also wanna shout out my friends like SK and Amani, it’s been great talking to you guys and just clowning around having fun. Best of luck at PFP to you guys. Thank you for everything EAW, I love you guys.

( Hawk steps back from the podium and gets a round of applause from the crowd. )

( Lethal Consequences walks up to the podium holding a bottle of D’usse Cognac VSOP. )

Lethal Consequences: First of all let’s start this shit off right. Monkeys in the back, follow my lead.

( Lethal Consequences turns around and walks off the stage, leaving everyone confused for a minute. )

( //youtu.be/L4hefZG82VA plays )

( Lethal Consequences walks back out to the stage to re-do his own entrance, and he gets a massive round of applause before he brings one of the models to the front of the stage and pours D’usse down her throat. LC takes the podium and his theme music dies down. )

Lethal Consequences: Thank you to the academy for entering this ‘aight stable to this cool E-Fed’s Hall of Fame. I know I’ve made a giant imprint on EAW and that everyone knows me and I’m famous as fuck as Lethal Consequences. But I took the ending of LC and appropriated the C and added a J, as my new persona on the internet is Collar John, @CollarJohn on twitter, don’t @ me. My promos fuck on you all and would still to this day, but now I own slapnuts on the M-I-C. If I could get one of them cool hip-hop microphones, please… Rock witchya boy.

( A new platinum colored microphone is handed to Lethal Consequences. )

LC: Double Hall of Fame fuck with me

( LC drops the mic and holds up the peace sign, and he gets a big ovation from the crowd. )

( Impact walks up to the podium. )

Impact: How about those bars huh? What a time for celebration. I’m about to obliterate Jamie O’Hara at Pain for Pride, yes, but not before a word from my sponfors – the iconic, famed Generation Genesis, with whom I etched indelible marks in EAW’s proverbial sands of time. I’d like to thank CM Banks for making it all happen, because I wouldn’t be here without you. Generation Genesis is symbolic of the period in my career where I emerged from the gutters and became a regular patron of the penthouse, winning the World Heavyweight Championship in what became a dominant run on Showdown.

As grateful as I am to CM Banks for his contributions to Genesis, I’m that much more grateful that certain people aren’t here to muddy the waters that in 2010 were steely blue. I’m thankful my time here doesn’t come with an asterisk unlike certain people who have tread these gold-paved hallowed halls. I’m not naming any names — Brian Daniels, Jacob Senn, Stark, Robbie V, and that cunty whore HBG — not naming names, tho! Now I can finally enjoy myself again and it’s all thanks to an unbreakable bond formed back in 2010. CM Banks, thank you. I’m still here, and they’re not. As I accept my 2nd HOF ring, you ask, what does that mean to me? Everything.

( Impact backs away from the microphone receiving a round of applause from fans, and Ronn Banks steps up to the podium adjusting the microphone for himself. )

Ronn Banks: It feels good to be here tonight to accept my award, becoming a two time Hall of Famer is a great honor that not many people have the honor of saying they have. Even though half of the people that can don’t deserve it. 😉

You can’t talk about 2010 aka The Year of Bank$ without talking about Generation Genesis, we ran the place. Fast forward to 2018 and we’re probably more known for being the greatest collection of soundcloud rappers in EAW history. I won’t front like most of you know who we are or what we did during our time together, so allow me to give you a brief history lesson. Believe it or not there was a time where every member in this group were the top members in EAW, even LC who in his words “was on acid” during the group’s time together which is why he didn’t promo :skip:. In all seriousness though he would more than make up for it later as he’d become one of the more reliable and consistent main eventers in EAW and a top promoer during the time period. Despite Hawk’s shaky rep he would later go onto gain, he was a very consistent promoer for a good 2-3 years and he had EAW in the palm of his hands. Unfortunately well.. RTR 2012 happened. But let’s be real here people, you can’t selectively be outraged at who constantly returns and unreliably dips. Maybe if Hawk was in that weeb clique over the years nobody would criticize him and all of his sudden leaves would have been overlooked like they did with that bozo who got his name from a Game of Thrones character. At least he never no showed or quit as world champ :sas2:.

( Banks rolls his eyes and then smirks. )

Banks: I would like to take the time out to thank my teammates.. all of you were in a way an extension of me because you were guys I put under my wing long before this faction started and you all went on to establish yourselves as solo competitors which made us coming together even more powerful. Impact, a person who’s loyalty to EAW was and is matched by very few, a man who I looked at as the future and ended up surpassing even my expectations. Lethal Consequences, the most unique entity in EAW history and one of the most under appreciated legends to ever come here. He doesn’t gets his deserved props and it’s all because somebody got on their high horse and fired him for no reason in the middle of his prime as soon as I retired but let back literally every reject who got fired by me without any regard :wtf:. Ironically those same entities were the people who ran that person out of EAW more than once, karma sure is real isn’t it Stephypoo? Hurricane Hawk.. the man who was perceived as the future star in the group, used his Generation Genesis momentum to leverage his way into becoming a CITV winner, a multiple time World Heavyweight Champion, and was even able to fuck my wife. These days he’s more known for being Cameron Ella Ava’s ex. I just wish he’d make his mind up on if he wants to be active in EAW or have a social life. Just kidding I love you Hawky.

Now that my teammates are out of the way, I’d like to thank some other people. I want to thank Mister K for booking us to be way better than his shitty group whose only purpose was to stroke Mak’s ego ever was.

( Impact and Hawk start dying laughing in the background. )

Banks: I’d like to thank Robbie V who purposely shunned us from the Hall of Fame a year ago because he was too busy holding a grudge over the fact that I didn’t put him in the 2011 Hall of Fame which he didn’t deserve at the time. That was just one of several examples of you not being able to let what happened 7 years ago go, which then came back to bite you once I had enough of your bullshit :grinning:. Spent your time passionately dismissing Generation Genesis’ purpose/impact/identity and acting like it was so unoriginal just to turn around and put a Bullet Club ripoff on a pedestal. I don’t know which Genesis member pissed in your million dollar anime collection, but you gotta let that hurt go ma. Thankfully you’re not around anymore to continue with the revisionist history so your opinion is irrelevant now. You can conspire to hand yourself all the “decade awards” or should I say, “Robbie and his dickriding friends statpadding awards” but Generation Genesis is the ONE TRUE(see what I did there?)… stable of the decade. And anybody with a problem with what I said, I got a one way ticket to Japan for you.

( Bansk winks to the hard camera. )

Banks: Anyways onto more important people, I’d like to thank Kendra Shamez aka the greatest vixen of all time, because she was actually a very big part of Genesis’ storylines and promoing against her back then was pretty hilarious. I hope you and Imp make a bunch of babies together. Thanks for exposing Hawk for fucking my wife behind my back sis, I dodged a bullet :mjgrin:. I’d like to thank StarrStan, he was also a big part of Genesis’ storylines and was damn near an unofficial member at one point. I’d like to thank Jon Kelton for being a failure as early as he was because he was THIS close to having what ended up being Hawk’s spot in the group and that would’ve been a bad look :whew:.

I want to thank Mr. DEDEDE for being a real one and sticking by my side even when it wasn’t the popular thing to do. It’s very easy to fall into trying to fit with a crowd because you feel it’s safe, it’s another thing to stick to your guns and stand for what you believe in. That’s what separates a leader from a following sheep. Every decision you made was for the betterment of this company and in the end it paid off, EAW is as strong as it’s ever been despite any attempts to hinder it. We made it to Pain for Pride, and we didn’t have to reach to make it happen. So once again, salute.

I wanna thank TRE/Ashten Cross for being a real one and every once in a while reaching out to me throughout my five year absence and keeping the legacy alive through different GFX and shit like that, even if it was to the displeasure of a certain teammate of mine(looks at Impact). Even with REVOLT you stepped your presence and activity up tenfold from what it usually was in order to make it a success, and I appreciate that. A common theme in this speech here is loyalty, and that’s TRE personified.

Most importantly, I’d like to thank every member of EAW because without you guys we wouldn’t still be here with a 2018 Hall of Fame to even be a part of. I’m going to be making my way but just know.. Generation Genesis is the greatest faction to ever step foot in EAW and there will never be a greater group of men assembled together again. Esskeetit.

( “Shock The World” comes back on and the Generation Genesis all receive a STANDING ovation, as the four walk off the stage and over to the red carpet section for them to take photo-ops and receive their Hall of Fame rings in a mahogany box. )

( Commissioner Daniels walks back on stage. )

Commissioner Daniels: Yo LC save me some of that D’usse goddammit! I’m trying to pregame before the after party. Who in the world knew a mid 30s caucasian like LC would have those kind of bars? But ye, as Hov said “on to the next one.”

The next person entering the 2018 Class of the EAW Hall of Fame, is a young woman who started off as an innocent rookie with no clear direction or path in this business; and with years of hard work, consistency, determination and loyalty, made it all the way to become an EMPRESS. Well tonight this empress becomes an EAW Hall of Famer, let’s take a look!

( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wci086TwuwQ )

( We see Raven Roberts in a confessional. )

Raven Roberts: Madison Kaline is someone that I can’t claim that I’d consider a personal friend on Empire. That said, she is someone who’s capabilities I studied on the independents due to the success she achieved in and out of the ring. She’s a master in the ring and oozes charisma on the microphone. She may not be Crowe’s Nest level of great (laughs) but she’s more than deserving of being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

( We see TLA in a confessional. )

TLA: Madison Kaline goin’ into that Hall of Fame too? The EAW Hall of Fame gonna be packed with more bitches than the Poon Palace at this rate. Y’all tryna compete with me? I ain’t gonna let you put me outta business gonna fuck you up. But who am I kidding I can’t fuck anyone up right now. Maddie is too adorable. Maddie a silent killer. She been secretly busting out some of the best work in the company for a long ass time and ain’t receive enough recognition for it. Tonight ain’t like that tho. Tonight she gonna get all that recognition when she go all up in the Hall of Fame like a boss. Maddie sticking it to all the haters who ever fucked with her or tried to hold her down with this induction. Got much respect for that. Don’t let anyone tell you you ain’t shit cuz right now you the shit. Congrats gurrrl you deserve it!

( We see Mr. DEDEDE in a confessional. )

Mr. DEDEDE: I had the chance to watch Maddie’s career from her humble beginnings as the stereotypical “girl next door” who we all knew was talented, but nothing will ever impress me more than when she COMPLETELY reinvented herself and commanded respect from the entire EAW populace. The thing about Madison is she hasn’t been handed nearly as many opportunities as a lot of other people have around here, so the fact that she’s an Empress of Elite and former Vixens Champion, considering all of the odds she had to overcome, brings more value to her accolades than a lot of other people male or female to step through these doors. I don’t care who you want to compare her to, I don’t care who else you think should be “in here before Maddie”, Maddie is a Hall of Famer with an actual Hall of Fame career. Can’t say the same for certain others 🙂

( Open back up to the stage. )

Announcer: Here to induct Madison Kaline into the EAW Hall of Fame, please welcome EAW HALL OF FAMER… KENDRAAAAA SHAMEEEEEEEZZZZ!!!!

( “We Hate Everyone” by K. Flay plays, and Kendra Shamez walks out to the stage in a stunning gold dress; receiving a big round of applause from the fans in the T-Mobile Arena. Kendra takes the podium, and her music eventually dies down. )

Kendra Shamez: There’s no better privilege than being able to witness great talent go in one of the most prestigious and respected Hall of Fame’s in wrestling history. Only the elite of the elite is granted such honor. Only those who stay true to themselves and never turn their back on the platform that acted as a launching pad for their careers deserve to be among the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. I have nothing but absolute love, respect, and honor towards this next inductee. She has been a loyal EAW roster member for many years and everyone has grown to admire such tenacity and perseverance from this woman who has done nothing but continuously make a name for herself every single time she steps in that ring. She has blossomed from a rookie who didn’t know how to lace her own boots to a skilled, menacing, talented veteran.

Madison Kaline is the perfect example of the saying that goes, “no matter how many times you fall, every time you will come back up even stronger.” I’ve had the pleasure to get to know Madison since she signed her contract with Extreme Answers Wrestling. I remember her vividly as this soft-spoken, naive rookie who met everyone with such love and kindness. Although, when she got in that ring it was a completely different story. She was vicious, violent and knew how to whoop a bitches ass. Can I say bitch? I haven’t been to any of these since 2011, my apologies.

Madison went through various changes in her career. She evolved from a silly teenage girl into a serious woman who got down to fucking business. She attempted to find herself while going through many different changes in life. I remember going into the locker room one day and seeing her brown, luscious hair shift into a rich, red hue. I remember looking at her and saying, “What the fuck have you done to yourself?” She looked back at me, stared dead to my eyes and said, “New year, new me, bitch.” At that moment, I knew this woman was going to be a star. I just knew it. Years have now passed and Madison is at the prime of her career. She not only came back with a bang and won the Empress of Elite back in 2017, she is now battling it out for a shot at the Unified EAW Women’s Championship. How is that not fucking impressive? Despite it all, Maddie, I have always and will always have your back. I cherish you profoundly and I think you’re such a gem. Regardless of what path life gives us, no matter the distance or the days, weeks, years apart, you can always count on me.

I genuinely cannot say any better things about Madison. Words cannot truly express how grateful I feel that Maddie is still blessing EAW on the daily and how she’s going to beat that whore Astraea at Pain for Pride tomorrow. Madison, thank you, from the bottom of all of our hearts for being such a key player for EAW. Thank you for always having the company’s best interest in mind and not turning out like your fallen Vixen comrades that are nothing but selfish, fan fiction writing, Wikia deleting, grudge-having, two-faced backstabbing lying sack of shits. You represent the better portion of the Vixens evolution.

You are the Vixens revolution and there’s no one else I would rather have to be the face of it.

Now it is my honor to introduce the following inductee of the 2018 EAW Hall of Fame… MAAADISOOOOON KAAAAAAAAAAAAALINEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

( “This Could Be Anywhere In The World” by Alexisonfire plays and Madison Kaline walks out to the podium wearing a beautiful green dress. She and Kendra exchange a big hug and kisses on the cheek, and Kendra gives her the floor. The ENTIRE AUDIENCE comes to a huge standing ovation for Madison, and her music eventually dies down. )

Madison Kaline: Wow to say I am honored to be getting inducted into the EAW Hall of Fame would be an understatement, when I first joined EAW back in October of 2014, I never thought I would be standing here today as an EAW Hall of Famer. You all have watched me grow and develop into a nervous girl afraid of her own shadow into a strong independent woman. To join the likes of Kendra Shamez and Cameron Ella Ava as women in the Hall of Fame is an amazing accomplishment, these are girls who I have looked up to since day one and to join that elite company is a thrill and a honor.

EAW is such an amazing community, I have met so many wonderful people throughout my journey here. I have always tried to be the best person that I could possibly be. I always gave it a 100% effort, and I always tried to lead by example. When I first got the news that I would be joining the EAW Hall of Fame, I did a lot of reflecting, I thought about the people who helped me and who were a big part of my career. I mean there are so many people who I want to thank and I am sorry in advance to those I leave out I can’t name everybody I seriously wouldn’t have enough time but I would like to show my appreciation to the following individuals who stand out in a major way because without these people I would probably not be standing here right now.

First I would like to start off with Mr. DEDEDE, a person who has always been there for me, a person who has always had my back, and has always had my best interests to heart. Over the years we have developed a great friendship, I know I am not the easiest of people to deal with, I know I have let my emotions get the better of me, and at times I have made rash decisions, but through it all Mr. DEDEDE has never given up on me for that I thank him.

Cloud Matsuda, someone who I consider one of my closest of friends, such a sweetheart and a marvelous person. Always pushing me, always bringing the best out of me, a great competitor and an even better friend.

Kendra Shamez, I was so happy when I found out that you were inducting me, because honestly there is nobody who has been more influential in my EAW career than you. Kendra you are like a sister to me, you are a person who I can always lean on for advice, Kendra is always there for me no matter the circumstance, you are someone who I have tried to emulate my career around. Kendra’s passion for EAW is something to be appreciated.

Now lastly I would be remiss not to mention my dear late friend Brody Sparks. Tonight is a bitter sweet night, I am so happy I get to share the stage and get inducted in the same class with Brody, it makes me want to cry that she can’t be here tonight to celebrate with everyone. Brody’s career is something that should be celebrated that is for sure, but Brody meant a lot more than her time in EAW, because Brody as a human being was just so special, she truly was one of a kind she was a beautiful woman, she was the type of person who could unify people, she brought everyone together she loved making people laugh and she just liked making people feel good about themselves. I remember I was going through a tough time with some personal things, Brody was the first person to ask how I was doing and if I ever needed someone to talk to she would always be there for me. That was just the person she was, a caring, loving woman who hated to see people in pain.

( Madison sheds a tear )

Madison: I am not much of a singer but here we go “It’s been a long day without you my friend and I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again”.

( Madison pauses and sheds another tear )

Madison: Thank you for everything Brody I love you and I miss you so much. I am so proud of everything you have accomplished, I am also proud of what I have accomplished in EAW, I hope to accomplish even more when it is all said and done. I am so happy where the women’s division in EAW is right now, it has grown so much over the years and I am ecstatic that I could be apart of it. However I don’t just look at the past, I look at the future, and it is still so bright, with girls like Astraea Jordan, Raven Roberts, Kassidy Heart and Remi Skyfire leading the way. It just makes me smile to see what we have accomplished and what we are going to accomplish in the future.

Lastly I just want thank everyone in the EAW community from the owners, CM Banks and Mr. DEDEDE who do a amazing job making sure this place runs smoothly, the writers who dedicate all of there time to make sure everybody is being used properly and most importantly making sure everybody is having a good time, to every male and female elitist you are all what makes this place running without all of your hard work EAW doesn’t exist, I can’t stress this enough, from the bottom of my heart I can’t appreciate all the hard work that goes into making this the best fed ever. Thank You!

( Madison’s music picks back up and she gets a thunderous ovation, as she’s guided off the stage over to the red carpet section and is officially handed her Hall of Fame ring. She poses for pictures with her family, and Commissioner Daniels re-takes the stage. )

Commissioner Daniels: I never got a chance to see a lot of Maddie’s career up close but I’ve always heard so much about her and the things she’s accomplished. I know just by what very influential people have to say about her that she truly deserves this.

Moving forward, the next member stepping into the EAW Hall of Fame is a man that needs no introduction, but goddammit there’s a video package that’s going to give him one anyway! He is the longest reigning champion in the HISTORY of Elite Answers Wrestling, he has been described as the athlete that comes around “once in a century”… FOLKS, JAMIE O’HARA.

( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=MChE6s_vhIs )

( We see Liam Archer in a confessional. )

Liam Archer: Liam Archer: Jamie O’Hara was always one of the best, in my opinion. Before the first Voltage show, people kept telling me how good he was. And then…I saw his first promo, and I knew everyone was right. Jamie, you utterly deserve this induction into the Hall of Fame. I hope to get to know you some more, and eventually step into the ring with you someday.

( We see Raven Roberts in a confessional. )

Raven Roberts: Jamie O’Hara. I can’t say I know him all that well. But anyone willing to discuss strategy and advise a company rookie going into the biggest show of her career has my respect. He’s a proven great in EAW, and I’m glad he’s here. Also, look at those damn abs! Yaass!! (Raven laughs)

( We see Lucas Johnson in a confessional. )

Lucas Johnson: What can I not say about Jamie O’Hara? When I first arrived at EAW, I looked up to a lot of people in this company like Hades, StarrStan, DDD but most importantly I looked up to Jamie O’Hara. Non-stop Jamie would be in the lab trying to develop his craft and become the legend he is today. When I became New Breed Champion I had dreams of one day coming close to breaking his title reign of seven months but I came some what close right? Three months ain’t bad right? Anyway the fact that he holds that record and in the prime of his career he wins the World Heavyweight Championship. Not only that but he held that title for the longest amount of time in EAW HISTORY at 323 days! His list of accomplishments continue to grow adding to his EAW Championship reign and Tag Team Championship reign with Xavier Williams. In my opinion Jamie needs to be in the conversation of being considered the greatest of all time. Congrats on being inducted into the Hall of Fame, Jamie! :salute:

( We see TLA in a confessional. )

TLA: Oh shit it mah kangaroo homie Jamie O’Hara goin’ in that Hall of Fame. We go way back n shit got all them matches fuckin’ each other up. Iight mostly fucking me up but yo we ain’t gotta talk ‘bout that. We here today to talk about a real one. Lightin’ shit up with he promo game. Lightin’ shit up with he graphics game. Lightin’ shit up with he Cam game. Legit he greatest accomplishment right there. Cam a fine ass mami. Gettin’ all up in there with Cam like the Hall of Fame Championship makes yo induction pretty much a guaranteed thing. Legit we may not have always gotten along but I still got much luv for you homie. You helped me a lot to improve and I’m sure everyone here agrees you a beast with everything you do. Congrats to the top cunt in EAW. Except for Cam’s hayyyyy.

( We see Cameron Ella Ava in a confessional. )

Cameron Ella Ava: (Cameron Ella Ava is seen in confessionals, trying to fight the tears.)

Cameron Ella Ava: I told myself I wasn’t going to cry…but first things first…

Fuck you cunt and get in the sea.

Second, I think you’re probably going to hear this a lot from me tonight, but I am so proud of you. You are one of the most deserving people of this huge honor. Your hard work and dedication for EAW have brought you to this point and you are so deserving of headlining this class. To me, you are the ideal wrestler – you can cut promos, you can perform in five-star matches and you can design your ass off when it comes to your ring gear or posters for major events. There is nothing in this world that you cannot do and I highly admire that you always want to better yourself in this ever-evolving craft. You’re such a perfectionist and it makes me want to better myself to even compare to you in all these aspects of EAW. You are the bar that everyone from male to female is trying to get to the level too, but I think it is impossible to do so. I’ve spent the last two years that I’ve known you to try to be as good as you, but it seems like I’ll never make it there – thanks, Jamie. :unamused:

For the past two years, you have been known as the obstacle that I cannot defeat if my life depends on it. This is nothing like when we play connect four. Like the first few times, you manage to completely murder me in the game, I get discouraged and SOMEHOW I wind up winning the next game. You try to convince me that I actually won the game, but in reality, you let me win because you like seeing me happy for some reason. That was always the type of person you were around me. As much as we like to joke with one another, I always loved the big brother mentality that you had with me. You really helped me out these last two years of my life when I was I was going through my issues with my piece of shit of an ex and mental issues. You were always there for me to help me realize my self-worth and I cannot thank you enough for that. You helped me realize that I deserve a lot better than what I think I do. You are the best friend that a girl can ask for. You are the best ship partner that I could ever have and there is no “One True Pairing” that is going to take that away from us.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Jamie. You are one unforgettable person. Your Aussie lingo catches around the community like a fire. You are someone with a bright future ahead of you and when you leave, this place is going lose one great talent, but at least, we are fully aware that once you leave EAW, the sky’s the limit with you. There is no doubt that we’ll be seeing your designs out there one day. There is no doubt that the name, Jamie O’Hara is going to be remembered a lot around here. I will always remember you, Jamie. But, let’s live in the present. I got through this speech. That is considered a victory for me and a loss from you, so I leave you with this…

( We cut back to the arena. )

Announcer: And now, to induct Jamie O’Hara into the EAW Hall of Fame, please welcome EAW HALL OF FAMER CLASS OF 2016, XAVIER WILLIAAAAAAMMMSSS!!!!

( Xavier Williams walks out to the podium from behind the curtain wearing a tuxedo, and he receives a big ovation from the audience before hurriedly getting the fans to settle down by motioning his hands. )

Xavier Williams: There comes a time where someone enters this company and they’re already miles ahead of the game. They put everyone on immediate notice, setting the world on fire like so few have been able to do. You sit back and wonder how someone could seemingly come from absolutely nowhere and be scary good. This man could have been thrown straight to the top of the company from day one, no hype surrounding him whatsoever, and in no time at all wouldn’t have felt out of place in the slightest. That’s how good this man is. Everyone knew the potential that he held.

There was no doubt in the mind that he would one day stand at the top of this business seemingly unmatched. A man that would create a legacy that the majority of this business could only dream of achieving – and he still managed to blow those expectations out of the water. The longest reigning New Breed Champion. The longest reigning World Heavyweight Champion. a Cash in the Vault briefcase holder :mjgrin:, and one half of my favourite tag team champions. Sorry, Jack. But, more importantly than all of that – he’s one hell a friend.

I haven’t told many people this, but without this man I probably would have given up on all of this a long time ago. The one person I knew that I could talk to and vent all of my frustrations and know that someone was listening and had advice that was rational. There is no one else that deserves this honor more than this man. I could stand here for the rest of the night – or even nine months 😉 about why this man is so deserving, but this isn’t about me. Ladies and Gentlemen, please stand up and welcome… JAMIE O’HARA!!! Welcome to the Hall of Fame.

( “Kashmir [EAW Edit] by Led Zeppelin plays, and the entire building jumps up in applause as Jamie O’Hara walks out to the stage dressed in a black armani suit, overwhelmed by the response. Jamie and Xavier give each other a brotherly hug on the stage, and the two exchange words while the fans continue to cheer wildly. Jamie takes the podium finally, and he stands there in awe of the feeling before “Kasmir” finally dies down. )

Jamie O’Hara: Well fuck me dead. I’m pretty shit at writing speeches and I’m pretty shit at having the attention but lets fuckin go.

My first introduction to EAW was back in 2012 or sometime around that coming from a dead E-Fed. I signed up, got booked in some multi-man match and the first promo I read was from a dude who wanted to fuck my eyeholes or something like that, was a real nail pervert. Safe to say when I closed down that page, it was the last time I had a peak at EAW in some time.

Then I had Tre hit me up on an old design forum we were on. He asked me about creating a new logo for EAW. I never made that logo but he again hit me up later that year about potentially joining EAW with the 2014 draft and the return of Voltage. I didn’t have high hopes of sticking around; E-Fedding was something that I had basically given up on. I had my “fix” for lack of a better word; it was just something I had considered doing again. Even after I had signed up and settled into this community, I didn’t really expect myself to stick around any longer than a couple of weeks. I was almost coming here to exclusively make graphics. But I enjoyed those first few weeks. The community was active, forums were active, chat was active. Live shows were a tremendous experience; the suspense of it all was something truly unique, something that I hadn’t seen done before. I realised this place was special. For years I had seen communities die; niches that were never able to bring enough new people in to keep the turnover going. And it sucked. It sucked because all there was were the big sites with hundreds to thousands of users. There is no community, nothing what I absolutely adored for years whether it was designing or being a part of a wrestling forum. This community was the reason I stayed and it might have changed over the years, been split in quarters, thirds, in half, lopsided whatever it may be, it has been perhaps the biggest reason I’ve continued to stay here even when I’ve wanted to leave. This community, no matter how many times it changes, no matter the drama that divides it, is important and is something you cannot replicate. The last 4 years have certainly been without a doubt the most rewarding years I’ve been doing this and what I’ve done in script, what I’ve done with the character means very little compared to everything that I’ve been blessed with.

I’ve seen the worst of this community due to cunts, borderline monsters but I’ve also seen what this community can do at its absolute peak. It has come together in ways that highlighted how connections, friendships and even relationships have become as natural as life away from the screen. I don’t believe there’s two communities butting heads, just one fractured group. Enter some fantastic utopia bullshit here because I can’t really think of anything.

I didn’t know anyone here beyond Tre and a few vague instances with Cage in the old UWF in 2012. And I guess that’s what has made the last number of years rewarding. I didn’t know about AWF or LEGION or whatever other E-Fed popped up to compete or exist with EAW over the years before I joined. People didn’t really have any reason to have a bet on me but I was fortunate enough to get opportunities right from the start and really, for the last 4 years I haven’t stopped getting opportunities. People always talk about their runs with highs and lows and while there might have been a few months here and there where I might have been a bit directionless, ultimately I’ve been on the same, singular run since I got here. The Jamie O’Hara character was the best of 6 years E-Fedding and I certainly feel that I’ve reached the absolute pinnacle of this character since joining EAW. Like I said, nobody had any reason to take a punt on me but it only took a few weeks to win the New Breed title, six months I was competing for the World Title, a year and I was CITV, 18 months and I was the EAW Champion. I don’t know whose dick I sucked to ever get as much as I did in such a short space of time – something I’ve appreciated more and more over the years as new, incredibly talented people come and go – but I’ve never been unappreciative of it all. I never really doubted myself when it came to being able to hang with the best in EAW; being such a competitive cunt I was certain that I would eventually face the best and perhaps become one of the best. Being inducted into the Hall of Fame certainly helps that belief even if it comes off as arrogant. Even despite everything that has happened, I don’t question the credibility to what I’ve achieved in EAW.

There’s a lot of people I want to thank for their support and just being overall good cunts. Unfortunately, a lot of them aren’t here but the top of the list however, is someone I’m thanking for beyond E-Fedding, something beyond this community; Mr. DEDEDE. I’ve already told you this before but I cannot thank you and Robbie enough for allowing me to create freely. Ever since Tre handed Shock Value over to me, I’ve been able to come to you about any creative idea I’ve had for posters, for banners, for anything and you’ve always given me the right to freely design. You’ve allowed me to experiment with different styles, different programs and regardless if they were hit or miss, allowed me to keep working on them. I know it became a bit of a meme last year but I wouldn’t have done as well in my studies as I have if it wasn’t for this community, for EAW and yourself and Robbie. I really wasn’t aiming to become a graphic designer when I joined here, thought I was going to end up as a teacher or getting a trade, but the two of you certainly have had an impact on me finding myself in the position I’m in today. Being able to create shit like the motion graphics for PFP 9 and X, posters built in Cinema 4D featuring nobody from the roster, it all inspired me to do better, to explore more; EAW formed so much of my passion for design, so thank you.

There’s been two people particularly over the last two years that have been incredible friends. You have been my best mate here in EAW for some time here, always being one of my biggest supporters. You are one of the most creative people in EAW; the way you develop ideas and flesh them out from your character to potential stories and the matches you write, you’ve inspired me as a writer at times and this community is lucky to have you wherever your services land. You’ve given me far, far too many wins over yourself and I certainly do feel a bit selfish for not having given you a win back just yet. Everything you’ve done with Theron thus far has been a pleasure to watch and it’s criminal just how overdue you are for another World championship. And even though your poverty team is starting to suck once more and mine is growing into a dynasty, I will not give you shit; I’m just that good of a mate. I’ve got no doubt the best for you in EAW just around the corner.

AAAANNNNDDDD this where it gets sappy. The other person is Cameron Ella Ava. I don’t think I can ever put into words how wonderful of a person you are. There’s few people I’ve ever met who are as genuine, thoughtful, selfless and kind as you are and I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to know you, to have you as a friend. Thank you for everything. For every night you kept me up, every game of C4, for every troll, for every awkward moment. At times I’ve been radio silent and barely said a word in weeks but you are the best thing to come out of the last four years and for the last year and a half, you’ve been one of the biggest reasons why I’ve wanted to stick around. Thank you for being you and never forget that how incredible of a person you are. I know how hard you work and you deserve the world in every aspect of you life and I hope you get it. Also my dancing Indian man is the greatest gif of all time /end.

I want to thank the likes of SK, Lars, Ahren and TLA for making this last title reign my best yet. You all brought out some of my best promos, some of my best hitters. Likewise, any opponent I’ve had for whatever it might have been, King of Elite, Cash In The Vault, Tag Team Championships, New Breed Championship, EAW Championship; thank you for making me deliver my best. I want to thank Impact for what has been an incredible, brilliantly written feud and perhaps one of my all time favourites. We’ve bumped a few times in the chat but I’ve always had respect for what you’ve done here and always been inspired by your work. Facing you was something I’ve wanted to do for such a long time and I’m incredibly thankful that I’ve got the opportunity to do so. I want to thank anyone who has written my character whether it was in a segment or a match. I want to thank everyone who makes the chat and these forums such fun and joyful places; you drive the community, you make this place what it is. I want to thank anyone who believed in me as a promoer in the early days, anyone who liked the graphics I made and fuck even anyone who gave critical feedback. I’m sure I’m forgetting people, like I said I’m fucking shit at speeches so if I have a reason to be thankful to you for any reason at all, thank you.

Truthfully I don’t know what the future holds for me. One moment I think I do, the other I find myself questioning what I think. If you were to ask me four years ago if I would be here in the EAW Hall of Fame, having accomplished what I’ve accomplished, having the friendships I’ve made, I probably would have thrown you in the fucking sea. But alas, here I am, still standing, in the Hall of Fame with a number of accomplishments and surrounded by incredible people. I don’t know what lies ahead for me – I wish I did because I’m an impatient cunt. But as long as this place remains, this community remains, I’ll always have a place to escape the madness of my life. Still, there is still a list of things I want to accomplish, matches I want to have, moments I want to write and share. Pain For Pride has continued to grow ever since I got here and it reflects EAW as a whole better than anything else. This place is only going to grow and the future will always be bright for people here. Thank you for the last four years, thank you for allowing me to create, thank you for being such a wonderful community. Thank you for this spot in the Hall of Fame. Let’s raise a shoey to the next four years and hope they’re as good as the last! THANK YOU.

( “Kashmir” comes back on, and Jamie O’Hara gives a wave to the fans who embrace him with a ton of cheers. Jamie is escorted by a model over to the red carpet section, and he’s handed his Hall of Fame ring inside the mahogany container before taking photo ops with Cameron Ella Ava and other family members. )
(EAW Intro plays )

(We get a few highlights of the EAW Hall of Fame red carpet event that took place earlier, and we cut to the outside of the T-Mobile Arena in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada. We enter the inside of the venue where a stage is set with fans in the rafters and the stands, as well as dozens of EAW Elitists and executives along with their families and friends occupying the floor seats. There is also a large banner in the rafters with the image of Brody Sparks. )

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen…. WELCOME TO THE 2018 EAW HALL OF FAME CEREMONY!!!

( The arena applauds, and we get chants of “THANK YOU BRODY!” from the audience. )

Announcer: Please welcome this year’s Hall of Fame Host, he is the COMMISSIONER OF SUNDAY NIGHT VOLTAGE, MATHIEU “CAPTAIN CHARISMA” DANIELS!!!!!

( “Waves” by Kanye West hits and the arena gives a big ovation for Commissioner Matt Daniels as he walks out to the stage with his hair neatly combed, dressed in a well-tailored black suit. He walks up to the microphone and does his patented “peep search” until his music dies down. )

Commissioner Daniels: WAZZAUP EAW UNIVERSE!!!! WELCOME TO THE 9TH EVER EDITION OF THE E-A-DUBYA HALL OF FAAAAMEEEEE!!!!

( CC leads the crowd in cheers. )

Daniels: It feels wonderful to be here once again with the EAW family, and it’s an even better feeling not to be completely stoned out of my mind like I was last year. We definitely had to make it a “thing” last year not to get too gone off the shits, but then again being backstage in the same locker room as Eclipse Diemos will do that to you. Man that guy was a creep.

The EAW family has been through so much this season and the fact that despite all of the trials and tribulations, we are still heading into Pain for Pride Festival — a FOUR DAY extravaganza — with arguably more momentum than I’ve ever seen? It’s incredible. Absolutely incredible. It never ceases to amaze me how powerful the EAW machine is, and this machine is nothing without the loyalty of the people. No matter what drama has gone down, no matter what losses we’ve suffered, EAW has still remained the brand that the fans trust through it all. That shit is powerful!

Tonight we’re going to celebrate a handful of peeps who, by being a part of the EAW community have made this brand and this company stronger. Tonight we are inducting, in my view, one of the strongest Hall of Fame classes that I can remember; because this time around there it is beyond all reasonable doubt (see what I did there?) that these individuals are all deserving of being celebrated. EAW wouldn’t be the same without these men and women, and we will hear from the people who’s lives and careers they have touched. So why don’t we kick things off shall we???

Let’s get a look at our first inductee!

( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECwwBK-5MA0 )

( The video package comes to an end and the camera returns to the stage. )

Announcer: Introducing the person inducting Vic Vendetta into the Hall of Fame! … LUUUUCIANNNNNN BLACK!!!!!

( ‘Only One Way’ by Code Orange plays and Lucian Black walks out onto the stage wearing an all black tuxedo. He walks to the podium and gives a quick wave to the crowd before his music dies down. )

Lucian Black: It fills me with the utmost joy to stand here before you all tonight to honor the career and legacy of the man known as Vic Vendetta.

(The crowd in attendance applauds)

Lucian: Time flies, doesn’t it? It feels like just yesterday Victor, ADV and I were going from town to town in a car which I usually paid the rent for —

(The crowd laughs as Lucian lets out a smile)

Lucian: Cracking jokes, sharing our goals and dreams with one another, wondering what the future had in store for each of us. Obviously one of us went on to become a multi-time World Champion, a hall of famer and a legend. Everyone knows the name Alexander Da Vinci. I’m personally still looking to accomplish a lot I haven’t. And Vic Vendetta… Well, tonight Victor takes his rightful place among the greats.

(The crowd once again applauds and cheers)

Lucian: We faced off under different circumstances many times throughout our careers. However, our first encounter nine years ago will always be unforgettable to me. It was a tag team match between the team of ADV and myself, Revolution 5.5 and the team of Vic Vendetta and a guy that went by the name of Jason Sanders. On that night Vic Vendetta showed he was built for this for the first time. He didn’t just impress the fans or the EAW management, he impressed Alexander and myself too. From that point forward the three of us became really good friends. Since then this guy has proven that if you have a goal here in EAW and you’re willing to go the extra mile, it doesn’t matter how bleak your situation looks, you will accomplish just that. That is why this man will always be recognized as a world champion in this company.

Ladies and gentlemen, please raise and give the newest member of the EAW Hall of Fame the standing ovation that he deserves, because I know he’s going to come out here and try to be humble about this but you can DAMN BELIEVE he deserves every bit of this. GIVE IT UP FOR VIC VENDETTA!!!

( “Stroke God, Millionaire” by Dance Gavin Dance hits and Vic Vendetta walks out dressed in a custom suit to embrace Lucian Black with a big hug. Vic raises a fist to the audience who give him a big standing ovation, and he takes the podium looking around with a warm smile on his face. )

Vic Vendetta: Thank you everyone. I definitely don’t intend to come out and monopolize everyone’s time, originally I was just going to take my ring in the mail and let some of the others have their shine. After all what is there to say about the career of Vic Vendetta? I don’t know really, there isn’t much… but apparently there’s a time requirement on these things so I have to come up with something. HMMM…

Vic: My career was very black and white.

( Vic pauses for a few moments, hoping for laughter )

Vic: I can’t lie, that was a pre-written joke. I hope there’s enough of you out old enough to get that one hahaha. But… really though folks, seriously, in the most humble way possible, I mean it. My career wasn’t all that extraordinary compared to some of the other names you see in this prestigious hall, I was genuinely surprised to get the call a t first.

Vic: Surprised yes, but also honored. Honored to receive that call, honored to be up here, honored to represent the 2018 Hall of Fame Class. I’m also blessed, and I’m sure you’re going to be hearing that word a lot tonight and after a while it’s gonna get nauseating, but it’s true. So many people would like to do what we do, only a fraction ever get to, and out of that fraction, an even smaller fraction are able to find the success that I have, yes, I’m blessed. I had a list of names, a list of people that I wanted to thank but I was told I couldn’t bring it out because it was too long. BANKS JUST HAS TO HAVE EVERYTHING HIS WAY!!!! But… there are a few people that I do need to thank, CM Banks of course being one of them for giving me the opportunity to do this, to be me. I wouldn’t exist without you, this event wouldn’t exist without you, none of this would exist without YOU. I’d also like to thank Mr. DEDEDE, The Heart Break Boy, The Prince of Phenomenal, Extreme Enigma, Scott Diamond, and any other writer who’s helped me along the way, who helped me carve out this career. …

… I was gonna mention a few more by name but I’m not exactly sure what kind of clearance I have. Since they took my list away, it’s probably not high.

Vic: I’ll spare you the obligatory thank you’s to my family and to God, nobody wants to hear that.

Vic: You know, my first run in EAW, it was a good one, I was happy with it, I was content… but my second run? That’s what tonight is about, that’s why I’m allowed to stand here tonight, allowed to call myself a Hall of Famer. I take great pride in that run, because it was a rarity… or else I consider it to be one. How many people can have a long, respectable career… leave, come back, and then be better than they were before? This is where the humbleness starts to fly out the window a little bit, because I can’t think of one really. Some come back and they’re just as good, or nearly as good… but so clearly better? After such a long hiatus? There really isn’t a name that comes to my mind who’s done that other than me. It’s another thing that I take great pride in. I was able to win the EAW Championship, I was able to main event a Pain For Pride, I was able to do all these amazing things, have all of these incredible experiences during that second run in 2014 and 2015, and I made sure that I took none of them for granted…

… but then I cut my hair, and nothing was the same after that…

… I guess that’s what held all the power. :shrug:

Vic: In closing I’d just like to say to everyone out there, don’t ever give up, as cliché as it may sound, don’t do it. If you think you aren’t good enough, stop thinking that. If you don’t think you can cut it, cut it. If you put your mind to it, it will be. That’s what they call the law of attraction, allowing your thoughts to become things. Never allow yourself to say no when an urge to do something creeps up inside you, if I did that I wouldn’t be here today. I wouldn’t have won the 24/7 Battle Royal after years of dormancy, I wouldn’t be a former EAW Champion, I wouldn’t be a Hall of Famer, I wouldn’t be… I guess they call it

“Immortal.”

Thank you.

( The Hall of Fame classical music plays and Vic Vendetta walks off stage and over to the red carpet portion, where he is handed his solid gold Hall of Fame ring in a mahogany and lavender container and poses for pictures with his family. Commissioner Daniels walks back on stage. )

Commissioner Daniels: I’ve known Vic for close to 10 years now and let me tell you, he’s one of the most humble people you will ever meet. It’s really cool to see him honored like this man, really cool. Next up on the list!

( CC holds up notes. )

Daniels: AWWW MAN, LET THE STAT-PADDING BEGIN!

( Daniels laughs. )

Daniels: I got jokes I got jokes. On the real though, this group of trailblazers were responsible for producing the definitive faces of multiple eras here in Elite Answers Wrestling, and all four of these individuals will be receiving their SECOND EAW Hall of Fame rings! Ladies and Gentlemen let’s take a look at the next inductees for the 2018 EAW Hall of Fame… GENERATION GENESIS!!!!

( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5E4wf1_SQA )

( We see Cameron Ella Ava in a confessional. )

Cameron Ella Ava: I feel like if there wasn’t a Generation Genesis, there will be no teams like Project EGO and Hexa-gun. There will be no standard for these other stables to reach. This is a stable consisted of men that contributed and left their legacy in EAW – Impact. Hurricane Hawk, Lethal Consequences and CM Banks. All highly deserving of this amazing achievement. This should have happened years ago and the fact that it hasn’t was shocking, but at least, justice is served and we finally get you guys in the Hall of Fame! Congratulations, could not go to a deserving stable like Generation Genesis!

( We cut back open to the stage. )

Announcer: Introducing the man who will be inducting the Generation Genesis into the EAW Hall of Fame, he is the GENERAL MANAGER OF FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY, STARRRRR STAANNNNNN!!!!

( “2nd Sucks” by A Day To Remember hits, and Starr Stan walks out to the stage in a tan colored suit with a big smile on his face despite bags under his eyes. He salutes the crowd who give him a huge ovation in return, and he takes the podium — waiting until the music dies down before he gets a chance to speak. )

Starr Stan: Thank you EAW Universe! First of all WHO’S READY FOR PAIN FOR PRIDE TOMORROW?

( The crowd gives a massive pop. )

Starr: Me too man, me too. Can’t wait to get this godforsakened season over with. EAW is the most amazing company in the world and we have been working tirelessly, especially me, to make sure Pain for Pride is as spectacular as advertised — if not MORE. Seriously you guys I’ve been up for literally three days working non stop, I’ve been averaging about a good 3 hours of sleep each night this month, but the energy that the EAW audience brings is what motivates all of us to work as hard as we do. Tonight I have the distinct honor and pleasure of inducting four men who have worked their asses off in similar fashion to become legends in this industry, but more importantly what we’re honoring is the power of “collaboration.”

You see, EAW Is a big reflection of life, and in life a lot of your success depends on who you know as much as it does how gifted and talented you are. In life we all need a helping hand, a way to reach out to one another, we all need to be able to take constructive criticism and advice and have a core group of individuals around us who make us BETTER — not worse. When you look at Banks, Impact, Hawk and LC, the four of them as a unit created a force that I personally witnessed with my own eyes DOMINATE this company. And unlike many stables in EAW’s lore, they didn’t do so by being a carbon copy of another group or trying to rip the next man’s idea off, they became successful because they had a concept and they had a goal. And every day was another step closer to that goal.

When you look back the name “Generation Genesis” is so appropriate for these group of individuals, because their debuts spanned across multiple quote-unquote “generations” of EAW history and their debuts have all been the result of a “genesis”, if you will, of four incredible stories as individuals. The fact they were able to come together for that Season 3 and create such a dominant force is enough to put them in alone, but the after effects are what really get you. This group brought about the dominance of CM Banks in his prime, it brought a new life into Impact’s career and set his path in motion to become the most accomplished Elitist ever, it revitalized Lethal Consequences to earn his spot as a Hall of Famer contrary to some dickeating opinions — and last but not least, it helped Hurricane Hawk start his career running and boy did Hawk hold this place down during EAW’s 5th season. I’m proud of all four of these men, and thankfully the stars aligned for them to accomplish what they accomplished. So enough of my blabbering, let’s give a VERY WARM WELCOME TO FOUR PILLARS OF THIS COMPANY… THE GENERATION GENESIS!!!!!

( “Shock The World” by Lloyd Banks hits, and all four members of Generation Genesis: Ronn Banks, Hurricane Hawk, Lethal Consequences and Impact all walk out to the stage dressed in gucci suits, and being escorted by models. Starr steps to the side clapping for them, and he takes his leave as the Genesis all stand by the microphone podium. )

Ronn Banks: Thank you!

( The crowd gives a BIG ovation, and the four of them step back looking around at the raucous crowd who are giving them a ton of fanfare. Hurricane Hawk is the first to step up to the podium. )

Hurricane Hawk: I’ll go first of the rest of you guys don’t mind. It is with great honor that I accept this award alongside a couple of great men I once stood on top of the world with. Men that I can call my brothers. When I first started out here in EAW I would have never thought that one day I would be a Hall of Famer, let alone a two time Hall of Famer. I did a lot of great things in my career, I went on to capture world championships and other accomplishments like the 24/7 battle royal and the Cash in the Vault. It is very safe to say that none of that would have been possible had it not been for the time I spent here in Generation Genesis because this is what set everything off.

Banks took me under his wing when I was just a rookie even though he didn’t have to, he could have chosen anybody else but he chose me. He gave me the ball and I ran with it and we made this group the best we could. I wanna shout out Impact and LC as well for being great stablemates and legends in their own right. It’s safe to say that we are the best stable to ever enter this company. That’s just my opinion.

I would like to thank DEDEDE for also giving me a chance, giving me chance after chance over the years despite the setbacks and being really the only board member at the time who believed in me. I know I let you guys down a lot but some things have unfortunately been beyond my control and if I could have had it my way, I would have been in EAW for a consistent period of time over the years continuing my reign of dominance. Thank you for understanding though Ryan, you too Banks, when people tried to keep me away from this company only real friends vouched for me and I’ll always be thankful for that.

I’ll always be thankful for EAW period. I’m really glad I went through EAW because I don’t know how my life would be without it. I made a lot of friends and learned a lot of valuable lessons. I’m glad EAW has been able to go into the transition that it’s went through over the past few months and I’m excited to see how it continues to grow in the future under this great new management. I also wanna shout out my friends like SK and Amani, it’s been great talking to you guys and just clowning around having fun. Best of luck at PFP to you guys. Thank you for everything EAW, I love you guys.

( Hawk steps back from the podium and gets a round of applause from the crowd. )

( Lethal Consequences walks up to the podium holding a bottle of D’usse Cognac VSOP. )

Lethal Consequences: First of all let’s start this shit off right. Monkeys in the back, follow my lead.

( Lethal Consequences turns around and walks off the stage, leaving everyone confused for a minute. )

( //youtu.be/L4hefZG82VA plays )

( Lethal Consequences walks back out to the stage to re-do his own entrance, and he gets a massive round of applause before he brings one of the models to the front of the stage and pours D’usse down her throat. LC takes the podium and his theme music dies down. )

Lethal Consequences: Thank you to the academy for entering this ‘aight stable to this cool E-Fed’s Hall of Fame. I know I’ve made a giant imprint on EAW and that everyone knows me and I’m famous as fuck as Lethal Consequences. But I took the ending of LC and appropriated the C and added a J, as my new persona on the internet is Collar John, @CollarJohn on twitter, don’t @ me. My promos fuck on you all and would still to this day, but now I own slapnuts on the M-I-C. If I could get one of them cool hip-hop microphones, please… Rock witchya boy.

( A new platinum colored microphone is handed to Lethal Consequences. )

LC: Double Hall of Fame fuck with me

( LC drops the mic and holds up the peace sign, and he gets a big ovation from the crowd. )

( Impact walks up to the podium. )

Impact: How about those bars huh? What a time for celebration. I’m about to obliterate Jamie O’Hara at Pain for Pride, yes, but not before a word from my sponfors – the iconic, famed Generation Genesis, with whom I etched indelible marks in EAW’s proverbial sands of time. I’d like to thank CM Banks for making it all happen, because I wouldn’t be here without you. Generation Genesis is symbolic of the period in my career where I emerged from the gutters and became a regular patron of the penthouse, winning the World Heavyweight Championship in what became a dominant run on Showdown.

As grateful as I am to CM Banks for his contributions to Genesis, I’m that much more grateful that certain people aren’t here to muddy the waters that in 2010 were steely blue. I’m thankful my time here doesn’t come with an asterisk unlike certain people who have tread these gold-paved hallowed halls. I’m not naming any names — Brian Daniels, Jacob Senn, Stark, Robbie V, and that cunty whore HBG — not naming names, tho! Now I can finally enjoy myself again and it’s all thanks to an unbreakable bond formed back in 2010. CM Banks, thank you. I’m still here, and they’re not. As I accept my 2nd HOF ring, you ask, what does that mean to me? Everything.

( Impact backs away from the microphone receiving a round of applause from fans, and Ronn Banks steps up to the podium adjusting the microphone for himself. )

Ronn Banks: It feels good to be here tonight to accept my award, becoming a two time Hall of Famer is a great honor that not many people have the honor of saying they have. Even though half of the people that can don’t deserve it. 😉

You can’t talk about 2010 aka The Year of Bank$ without talking about Generation Genesis, we ran the place. Fast forward to 2018 and we’re probably more known for being the greatest collection of soundcloud rappers in EAW history. I won’t front like most of you know who we are or what we did during our time together, so allow me to give you a brief history lesson. Believe it or not there was a time where every member in this group were the top members in EAW, even LC who in his words “was on acid” during the group’s time together which is why he didn’t promo :skip:. In all seriousness though he would more than make up for it later as he’d become one of the more reliable and consistent main eventers in EAW and a top promoer during the time period. Despite Hawk’s shaky rep he would later go onto gain, he was a very consistent promoer for a good 2-3 years and he had EAW in the palm of his hands. Unfortunately well.. RTR 2012 happened. But let’s be real here people, you can’t selectively be outraged at who constantly returns and unreliably dips. Maybe if Hawk was in that weeb clique over the years nobody would criticize him and all of his sudden leaves would have been overlooked like they did with that bozo who got his name from a Game of Thrones character. At least he never no showed or quit as world champ :sas2:.

Banks: I would like to take the time out to thank my teammates.. all of you were in a way an extension of me because you were guys I put under my wing long before this faction started and you all went on to establish yourselves as solo competitors which made us coming together even more powerful. Impact, a person who’s loyalty to EAW was and is matched by very few, a man who I looked at as the future and ended up surpassing even my expectations. Lethal Consequences, the most unique entity in EAW history and one of the most under appreciated legends to ever come here. He doesn’t gets his deserved props and it’s all because somebody got on their high horse and fired him for no reason in the middle of his prime as soon as I retired but let back literally every reject who got fired by me without any regard :wtf:. Ironically those same entities were the people who ran that person out of EAW more than once, karma sure is real isn’t it Stephypoo? Hurricane Hawk.. the man who was perceived as the future star in the group, used his Generation Genesis momentum to leverage his way into becoming a CITV winner, a multiple time World Heavyweight Champion, and was even able to fuck my wife. These days he’s more known for being Cameron Ella Ava’s ex. I just wish he’d make his mind up on if he wants to be active in EAW or have a social life. Just kidding I love you Hawky.

Now that my teammates are out of the way, I’d like to thank some other people. I want to thank Mister K for booking us to be way better than his shitty group whose only purpose was to stroke Mak’s ego ever was.

( Impact and Hawk start dying laughing in the background. )

Banks: I’d like to thank Robbie V who purposely shunned us from the Hall of Fame a year ago because he was too busy holding a grudge over the fact that I didn’t put him in the 2011 Hall of Fame which he didn’t deserve at the time. That was just one of several examples of you not being able to let what happened 7 years ago go, which then came back to bite you once I had enough of your bullshit :grinning:. Spent your time passionately dismissing Generation Genesis’ purpose/impact/identity and acting like it was so unoriginal just to turn around and put a Bullet Club ripoff on a pedestal. I don’t know which Genesis member pissed in your million dollar anime collection, but you gotta let that hurt go ma. Thankfully you’re not around anymore to continue with the revisionist history so your opinion is irrelevant now. You can conspire to hand yourself all the “decade awards” or should I say, “Robbie and his dickriding friends statpadding awards” but Generation Genesis is the ONE TRUE(see what I did there?)… stable of the decade. And anybody with a problem with what I said, I got a one way ticket to Japan for you.

( Banks winks to the hard camera. )

Banks: Anyways onto more important people, I’d like to thank Kendra Shamez aka the greatest vixen of all time, because she was actually a very big part of Genesis’ storylines and promoing against her back then was pretty hilarious. I hope you and Imp make a bunch of babies together. Thanks for exposing Hawk for fucking my wife behind my back sis, I dodged a bullet :mjgrin:. I’d like to thank StarrStan, he was also a big part of Genesis’ storylines and was damn near an unofficial member at one point. I’d like to thank Jon Kelton for being a failure as early as he was because he was THIS close to having what ended up being Hawk’s spot in the group and that would’ve been a bad look :whew:.

I want to thank Mr. DEDEDE for being a real one and sticking by my side even when it wasn’t the popular thing to do. It’s very easy to fall into trying to fit with a crowd because you feel it’s safe, it’s another thing to stick to your guns and stand for what you believe in. That’s what separates a leader from a following sheep. Every decision you made was for the betterment of this company and in the end it paid off, EAW is as strong as it’s ever been despite any attempts to hinder it. We made it to Pain for Pride, and we didn’t have to reach to make it happen. So once again, salute.

I wanna thank TRE/Ashten Cross for being a real one and every once in a while reaching out to me throughout my five year absence and keeping the legacy alive through different GFX and shit like that, even if it was to the displeasure of a certain teammate of mine(looks at Impact). Even with REVOLT you stepped your presence and activity up tenfold from what it usually was in order to make it a success, and I appreciate that. A common theme in this speech here is loyalty, and that’s TRE personified.

Most importantly, I’d like to thank every member of EAW because without you guys we wouldn’t still be here with a 2018 Hall of Fame to even be a part of. I’m going to be making my way but just know.. Generation Genesis is the greatest faction to ever step foot in EAW and there will never be a greater group of men assembled together again. Esskeetit.

( “Shock The World” comes back on and the Generation Genesis all receive a STANDING ovation, as the four walk off the stage and over to the red carpet section for them to take photo-ops and receive their Hall of Fame rings in a mahogany box. )

( Commissioner Daniels walks back on stage. )

Commissioner Daniels: Yo LC save me some of that D’usse goddammit! I’m trying to pregame before the after party. Who in the world knew a mid 30s caucasian like LC would have those kind of bars? But ye, as Hov said “on to the next one.”

The next person entering the 2018 Class of the EAW Hall of Fame, is a young woman who started off as an innocent rookie with no clear direction or path in this business; and with years of hard work, consistency, determination and loyalty, made it all the way to become an EMPRESS. Well tonight this empress becomes an EAW Hall of Famer, let’s take a look!

( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wci086TwuwQ )

( We see Raven Roberts in a confessional. )

Raven Roberts: Madison Kaline is someone that I can’t claim that I’d consider a personal friend on Empire. That said, she is someone who’s capabilities I studied on the independents due to the success she achieved in and out of the ring. She’s a master in the ring and oozes charisma on the microphone. She may not be Crowe’s Nest level of great (laughs) but she’s more than deserving of being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

( We see TLA in a confessional. )

TLA: Madison Kaline goin’ into that Hall of Fame too? The EAW Hall of Fame gonna be packed with more bitches than the Poon Palace at this rate. Y’all tryna compete with me? I ain’t gonna let you put me outta business gonna fuck you up. But who am I kidding I can’t fuck anyone up right now. Maddie is too adorable. Maddie a silent killer. She been secretly busting out some of the best work in the company for a long ass time and ain’t receive enough recognition for it. Tonight ain’t like that tho. Tonight she gonna get all that recognition when she go all up in the Hall of Fame like a boss. Maddie sticking it to all the haters who ever fucked with her or tried to hold her down with this induction. Got much respect for that. Don’t let anyone tell you you ain’t shit cuz right now you the shit. Congrats gurrrl you deserve it!

( We see Mr. DEDEDE in a confessional. )

Mr. DEDEDE: I had the chance to watch Maddie’s career from her humble beginnings as the stereotypical “girl next door” who we all knew was talented, but nothing will ever impress me more than when she COMPLETELY reinvented herself and commanded respect from the entire EAW populace. The thing about Madison is she hasn’t been handed nearly as many opportunities as a lot of other people have around here, so the fact that she’s an Empress of Elite and former Vixens Champion, considering all of the odds she had to overcome, brings more value to her accolades than a lot of other people male or female to step through these doors. I don’t care who you want to compare her to, I don’t care who else you think should be “in here before Maddie”, Maddie is a Hall of Famer with an actual Hall of Fame career. Can’t say the same for certain others 🙂

( Open back up to the stage. )

Announcer: Here to induct Madison Kaline into the EAW Hall of Fame, please welcome EAW HALL OF FAMER… KENDRAAAAA SHAMEEEEEEEZZZZ!!!!

( “We Hate Everyone” by K. Flay plays, and Kendra Shamez walks out to the stage in a stunning gold dress; receiving a big round of applause from the fans in the T-Mobile Arena. Kendra takes the podium, and her music eventually dies down. )

Kendra Shamez: There’s no better privilege than being able to witness great talent go in one of the most prestigious and respected Hall of Fame’s in wrestling history. Only the elite of the elite is granted such honor. Only those who stay true to themselves and never turn their back on the platform that acted as a launching pad for their careers deserve to be among the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. I have nothing but absolute love, respect, and honor towards this next inductee. She has been a loyal EAW roster member for many years and everyone has grown to admire such tenacity and perseverance from this woman who has done nothing but continuously make a name for herself every single time she steps in that ring. She has blossomed from a rookie who didn’t know how to lace her own boots to a skilled, menacing, talented veteran.

Madison Kaline is the perfect example of the saying that goes, “no matter how many times you fall, every time you will come back up even stronger.” I’ve had the pleasure to get to know Madison since she signed her contract with Extreme Answers Wrestling. I remember her vividly as this soft-spoken, naive rookie who met everyone with such love and kindness. Although, when she got in that ring it was a completely different story. She was vicious, violent and knew how to whoop a bitches ass. Can I say bitch? I haven’t been to any of these since 2011, my apologies.

Madison went through various changes in her career. She evolved from a silly teenage girl into a serious woman who got down to fucking business. She attempted to find herself while going through many different changes in life. I remember going into the locker room one day and seeing her brown, luscious hair shift into a rich, red hue. I remember looking at her and saying, “What the fuck have you done to yourself?” She looked back at me, stared dead to my eyes and said, “New year, new me, bitch.” At that moment, I knew this woman was going to be a star. I just knew it. Years have now passed and Madison is at the prime of her career. She not only came back with a bang and won the Empress of Elite back in 2017, she is now battling it out for a shot at the Unified EAW Women’s Championship. How is that not fucking impressive? Despite it all, Maddie, I have always and will always have your back. I cherish you profoundly and I think you’re such a gem. Regardless of what path life gives us, no matter the distance or the days, weeks, years apart, you can always count on me.

I genuinely cannot say any better things about Madison. Words cannot truly express how grateful I feel that Maddie is still blessing EAW on the daily and how she’s going to beat that whore Astraea at Pain for Pride tomorrow. Madison, thank you, from the bottom of all of our hearts for being such a key player for EAW. Thank you for always having the company’s best interest in mind and not turning out like your fallen Vixen comrades that are nothing but selfish, fan fiction writing, Wikia deleting, grudge-having, two-faced backstabbing lying sack of shits. You represent the better portion of the Vixens evolution.

You are the Vixens revolution and there’s no one else I would rather have to be the face of it.

Now it is my honor to introduce the following inductee of the 2018 EAW Hall of Fame… MAAADISOOOOON KAAAAAAAAAAAAALINEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

( “This Could Be Anywhere In The World” by Alexisonfire plays and Madison Kaline walks out to the podium wearing a beautiful green dress. She and Kendra exchange a big hug and kisses on the cheek, and Kendra gives her the floor. The ENTIRE AUDIENCE comes to a huge standing ovation for Madison, and her music eventually dies down. )

Madison Kaline: Wow to say I am honored to be getting inducted into the EAW Hall of Fame would be an understatement, when I first joined EAW back in October of 2014, I never thought I would be standing here today as an EAW Hall of Famer. You all have watched me grow and develop into a nervous girl afraid of her own shadow into a strong independent woman. To join the likes of Kendra Shamez and Cameron Ella Ava as women in the Hall of Fame is an amazing accomplishment, these are girls who I have looked up to since day one and to join that elite company is a thrill and a honor.

EAW is such an amazing community, I have met so many wonderful people throughout my journey here. I have always tried to be the best person that I could possibly be. I always gave it a 100% effort, and I always tried to lead by example. When I first got the news that I would be joining the EAW Hall of Fame, I did a lot of reflecting, I thought about the people who helped me and who were a big part of my career. I mean there are so many people who I want to thank and I am sorry in advance to those I leave out I can’t name everybody I seriously wouldn’t have enough time but I would like to show my appreciation to the following individuals who stand out in a major way because without these people I would probably not be standing here right now.

First I would like to start off with Mr. DEDEDE, a person who has always been there for me, a person who has always had my back, and has always had my best interests to heart. Over the years we have developed a great friendship, I know I am not the easiest of people to deal with, I know I have let my emotions get the better of me, and at times I have made rash decisions, but through it all Mr. DEDEDE has never given up on me for that I thank him.

Cloud Matsuda, someone who I consider one of my closest of friends, such a sweetheart and a marvelous person. Always pushing me, always bringing the best out of me, a great competitor and an even better friend.

Kendra Shamez, I was so happy when I found out that you were inducting me, because honestly there is nobody who has been more influential in my EAW career than you. Kendra you are like a sister to me, you are a person who I can always lean on for advice, Kendra is always there for me no matter the circumstance, you are someone who I have tried to emulate my career around. Kendra’s passion for EAW is something to be appreciated.

Now lastly I would be remiss not to mention my dear late friend Brody Sparks. Tonight is a bitter sweet night, I am so happy I get to share the stage and get inducted in the same class with Brody, it makes me want to cry that she can’t be here tonight to celebrate with everyone. Brody’s career is something that should be celebrated that is for sure, but Brody meant a lot more than her time in EAW, because Brody as a human being was just so special, she truly was one of a kind she was a beautiful woman, she was the type of person who could unify people, she brought everyone together she loved making people laugh and she just liked making people feel good about themselves. I remember I was going through a tough time with some personal things, Brody was the first person to ask how I was doing and if I ever needed someone to talk to she would always be there for me. That was just the person she was, a caring, loving woman who hated to see people in pain.

( Madison sheds a tear )

Madison: I am not much of a singer but here we go “It’s been a long day without you my friend and I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again”.

( Madison pauses and sheds another tear )

Madison: Thank you for everything Brody I love you and I miss you so much. I am so proud of everything you have accomplished, I am also proud of what I have accomplished in EAW, I hope to accomplish even more when it is all said and done. I am so happy where the women’s division in EAW is right now, it has grown so much over the years and I am ecstatic that I could be apart of it. However I don’t just look at the past, I look at the future, and it is still so bright, with girls like Astraea Jordan, Raven Roberts, Kassidy Heart and Remi Skyfire leading the way. It just makes me smile to see what we have accomplished and what we are going to accomplish in the future.

Lastly I just want thank everyone in the EAW community from the owners, CM Banks and Mr. DEDEDE who do a amazing job making sure this place runs smoothly, the writers who dedicate all of there time to make sure everybody is being used properly and most importantly making sure everybody is having a good time, to every male and female elitist you are all what makes this place running without all of your hard work EAW doesn’t exist, I can’t stress this enough, from the bottom of my heart I can’t appreciate all the hard work that goes into making this the best fed ever. Thank You!

( Madison’s music picks back up and she gets a thunderous ovation, as she’s guided off the stage over to the red carpet section and is officially handed her Hall of Fame ring. She poses for pictures with her family, and Commissioner Daniels re-takes the stage. )

Commissioner Daniels: I never got a chance to see a lot of Maddie’s career up close but I’ve always heard so much about her and the things she’s accomplished. I know just by what very influential people have to say about her that she truly deserves this.

Moving forward, the next member stepping into the EAW Hall of Fame is a man that needs no introduction, but goddammit there’s a video package that’s going to give him one anyway! He is the longest reigning champion in the HISTORY of Elite Answers Wrestling, he has been described as the athlete that comes around “once in a century”… FOLKS, JAMIE O’HARA.

( We see Liam Archer in a confessional. )

Liam Archer: Liam Archer: Jamie O’Hara was always one of the best, in my opinion. Before the first Voltage show, people kept telling me how good he was. And then…I saw his first promo, and I knew everyone was right. Jamie, you utterly deserve this induction into the Hall of Fame. I hope to get to know you some more, and eventually step into the ring with you someday.

( We see Raven Roberts in a confessional. )

Raven Roberts: Jamie O’Hara. I can’t say I know him all that well. But anyone willing to discuss strategy and advise a company rookie going into the biggest show of her career has my respect. He’s a proven great in EAW, and I’m glad he’s here. Also, look at those damn abs! Yaass!! (Raven laughs)

( We see Lucas Johnson in a confessional. )

Lucas Johnson: What can I not say about Jamie O’Hara? When I first arrived at EAW, I looked up to a lot of people in this company like Hades, StarrStan, DDD but most importantly I looked up to Jamie O’Hara. Non-stop Jamie would be in the lab trying to develop his craft and become the legend he is today. When I became New Breed Champion I had dreams of one day coming close to breaking his title reign of seven months but I came some what close right? Three months ain’t bad right? Anyway the fact that he holds that record and in the prime of his career he wins the World Heavyweight Championship. Not only that but he held that title for the longest amount of time in EAW HISTORY at 323 days! His list of accomplishments continue to grow adding to his EAW Championship reign and Tag Team Championship reign with Xavier Williams. In my opinion Jamie needs to be in the conversation of being considered the greatest of all time. Congrats on being inducted into the Hall of Fame, Jamie! :salute:

( We see TLA in a confessional. )

TLA: Oh shit it mah kangaroo homie Jamie O’Hara goin’ in that Hall of Fame. We go way back n shit got all them matches fuckin’ each other up. Iight mostly fucking me up but yo we ain’t gotta talk ‘bout that. We here today to talk about a real one. Lightin’ shit up with he promo game. Lightin’ shit up with he graphics game. Lightin’ shit up with he Cam game. Legit he greatest accomplishment right there. Cam a fine ass mami. Gettin’ all up in there with Cam like the Hall of Fame Championship makes yo induction pretty much a guaranteed thing. Legit we may not have always gotten along but I still got much luv for you homie. You helped me a lot to improve and I’m sure everyone here agrees you a beast with everything you do. Congrats to the top cunt in EAW. Except for Cam’s hayyyyy.

( We see Cameron Ella Ava in a confessional. )

Cameron Ella Ava: (Cameron Ella Ava is seen in confessionals, trying to fight the tears.)

Cameron Ella Ava: I told myself I wasn’t going to cry…but first things first…

Fuck you cunt and get in the sea.

Second, I think you’re probably going to hear this a lot from me tonight, but I am so proud of you. You are one of the most deserving people of this huge honor. Your hard work and dedication for EAW have brought you to this point and you are so deserving of headlining this class. To me, you are the ideal wrestler – you can cut promos, you can perform in five-star matches and you can design your ass off when it comes to your ring gear or posters for major events. There is nothing in this world that you cannot do and I highly admire that you always want to better yourself in this ever-evolving craft. You’re such a perfectionist and it makes me want to better myself to even compare to you in all these aspects of EAW. You are the bar that everyone from male to female is trying to get to the level too, but I think it is impossible to do so. I’ve spent the last two years that I’ve known you to try to be as good as you, but it seems like I’ll never make it there – thanks, Jamie. :unamused:

For the past two years, you have been known as the obstacle that I cannot defeat if my life depends on it. This is nothing like when we play connect four. Like the first few times, you manage to completely murder me in the game, I get discouraged and SOMEHOW I wind up winning the next game. You try to convince me that I actually won the game, but in reality, you let me win because you like seeing me happy for some reason. That was always the type of person you were around me. As much as we like to joke with one another, I always loved the big brother mentality that you had with me. You really helped me out these last two years of my life when I was I was going through my issues with my piece of shit of an ex and mental issues. You were always there for me to help me realize my self-worth and I cannot thank you enough for that. You helped me realize that I deserve a lot better than what I think I do. You are the best friend that a girl can ask for. You are the best ship partner that I could ever have and there is no “One True Pairing” that is going to take that away from us.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Jamie. You are one unforgettable person. Your Aussie lingo catches around the community like a fire. You are someone with a bright future ahead of you and when you leave, this place is going lose one great talent, but at least, we are fully aware that once you leave EAW, the sky’s the limit with you. There is no doubt that we’ll be seeing your designs out there one day. There is no doubt that the name, Jamie O’Hara is going to be remembered a lot around here. I will always remember you, Jamie. But, let’s live in the present. I got through this speech. That is considered a victory for me and a loss from you, so I leave you with this…

( We cut back to the arena. )

Announcer: And now, to induct Jamie O’Hara into the EAW Hall of Fame, please welcome EAW HALL OF FAMER CLASS OF 2016, XAVIER WILLIAAAAAAMMMSSS!!!!

( Xavier Williams walks out to the podium from behind the curtain wearing a tuxedo, and he receives a big ovation from the audience before hurriedly getting the fans to settle down by motioning his hands. )

Xavier Williams: There comes a time where someone enters this company and they’re already miles ahead of the game. They put everyone on immediate notice, setting the world on fire like so few have been able to do. You sit back and wonder how someone could seemingly come from absolutely nowhere and be scary good. This man could have been thrown straight to the top of the company from day one, no hype surrounding him whatsoever, and in no time at all wouldn’t have felt out of place in the slightest. That’s how good this man is. Everyone knew the potential that he held.

There was no doubt in the mind that he would one day stand at the top of this business seemingly unmatched. A man that would create a legacy that the majority of this business could only dream of achieving – and he still managed to blow those expectations out of the water. The longest reigning New Breed Champion. The longest reigning World Heavyweight Champion. a Cash in the Vault briefcase holder :mjgrin:, and one half of my favourite tag team champions. Sorry, Jack. But, more importantly than all of that – he’s one hell a friend.

I haven’t told many people this, but without this man I probably would have given up on all of this a long time ago. The one person I knew that I could talk to and vent all of my frustrations and know that someone was listening and had advice that was rational. There is no one else that deserves this honor more than this man. I could stand here for the rest of the night – or even nine months 😉 about why this man is so deserving, but this isn’t about me. Ladies and Gentlemen, please stand up and welcome… JAMIE O’HARA!!! Welcome to the Hall of Fame.

( “Kashmir [EAW Edit] by Led Zeppelin plays, and the entire building jumps up in applause as Jamie O’Hara walks out to the stage dressed in a black armani suit, overwhelmed by the response. Jamie and Xavier give each other a brotherly hug on the stage, and the two exchange words while the fans continue to cheer wildly. Jamie takes the podium finally, and he stands there in awe of the feeling before “Kasmir” finally dies down. )

Jamie O’Hara: Well fuck me dead. I’m pretty shit at writing speeches and I’m pretty shit at having the attention but lets fuckin go.

My first introduction to EAW was back in 2012 or sometime around that coming from a dead E-Fed. I signed up, got booked in some multi-man match and the first promo I read was from a dude who wanted to fuck my eyeholes or something like that, was a real nail pervert. Safe to say when I closed down that page, it was the last time I had a peak at EAW in some time.

Then I had Tre hit me up on an old design forum we were on. He asked me about creating a new logo for EAW. I never made that logo but he again hit me up later that year about potentially joining EAW with the 2014 draft and the return of Voltage. I didn’t have high hopes of sticking around; E-Fedding was something that I had basically given up on. I had my “fix” for lack of a better word; it was just something I had considered doing again. Even after I had signed up and settled into this community, I didn’t really expect myself to stick around any longer than a couple of weeks. I was almost coming here to exclusively make graphics. But I enjoyed those first few weeks. The community was active, forums were active, chat was active. Live shows were a tremendous experience; the suspense of it all was something truly unique, something that I hadn’t seen done before. I realised this place was special. For years I had seen communities die; niches that were never able to bring enough new people in to keep the turnover going. And it sucked. It sucked because all there was were the big sites with hundreds to thousands of users. There is no community, nothing what I absolutely adored for years whether it was designing or being a part of a wrestling forum. This community was the reason I stayed and it might have changed over the years, been split in quarters, thirds, in half, lopsided whatever it may be, it has been perhaps the biggest reason I’ve continued to stay here even when I’ve wanted to leave. This community, no matter how many times it changes, no matter the drama that divides it, is important and is something you cannot replicate. The last 4 years have certainly been without a doubt the most rewarding years I’ve been doing this and what I’ve done in script, what I’ve done with the character means very little compared to everything that I’ve been blessed with.

I’ve seen the worst of this community due to cunts, borderline monsters but I’ve also seen what this community can do at its absolute peak. It has come together in ways that highlighted how connections, friendships and even relationships have become as natural as life away from the screen. I don’t believe there’s two communities butting heads, just one fractured group. Enter some fantastic utopia bullshit here because I can’t really think of anything.

I didn’t know anyone here beyond Tre and a few vague instances with Cage in the old UWF in 2012. And I guess that’s what has made the last number of years rewarding. I didn’t know about AWF or LEGION or whatever other E-Fed popped up to compete or exist with EAW over the years before I joined. People didn’t really have any reason to have a bet on me but I was fortunate enough to get opportunities right from the start and really, for the last 4 years I haven’t stopped getting opportunities. People always talk about their runs with highs and lows and while there might have been a few months here and there where I might have been a bit directionless, ultimately I’ve been on the same, singular run since I got here. The Jamie O’Hara character was the best of 6 years E-Fedding and I certainly feel that I’ve reached the absolute pinnacle of this character since joining EAW. Like I said, nobody had any reason to take a punt on me but it only took a few weeks to win the New Breed title, six months I was competing for the World Title, a year and I was CITV, 18 months and I was the EAW Champion. I don’t know whose dick I sucked to ever get as much as I did in such a short space of time – something I’ve appreciated more and more over the years as new, incredibly talented people come and go – but I’ve never been unappreciative of it all. I never really doubted myself when it came to being able to hang with the best in EAW; being such a competitive cunt I was certain that I would eventually face the best and perhaps become one of the best. Being inducted into the Hall of Fame certainly helps that belief even if it comes off as arrogant. Even despite everything that has happened, I don’t question the credibility to what I’ve achieved in EAW.

There’s a lot of people I want to thank for their support and just being overall good cunts. Unfortunately, a lot of them aren’t here but the top of the list however, is someone I’m thanking for beyond E-Fedding, something beyond this community; Mr. DEDEDE. I’ve already told you this before but I cannot thank you and Robbie enough for allowing me to create freely. Ever since Tre handed Shock Value over to me, I’ve been able to come to you about any creative idea I’ve had for posters, for banners, for anything and you’ve always given me the right to freely design. You’ve allowed me to experiment with different styles, different programs and regardless if they were hit or miss, allowed me to keep working on them. I know it became a bit of a meme last year but I wouldn’t have done as well in my studies as I have if it wasn’t for this community, for EAW and yourself and Robbie. I really wasn’t aiming to become a graphic designer when I joined here, thought I was going to end up as a teacher or getting a trade, but the two of you certainly have had an impact on me finding myself in the position I’m in today. Being able to create shit like the motion graphics for PFP 9 and X, posters built in Cinema 4D featuring nobody from the roster, it all inspired me to do better, to explore more; EAW formed so much of my passion for design, so thank you.

There’s been two people particularly over the last two years that have been incredible friends. You have been my best mate here in EAW for some time here, always being one of my biggest supporters. You are one of the most creative people in EAW; the way you develop ideas and flesh them out from your character to potential stories and the matches you write, you’ve inspired me as a writer at times and this community is lucky to have you wherever your services land. You’ve given me far, far too many wins over yourself and I certainly do feel a bit selfish for not having given you a win back just yet. Everything you’ve done with Theron thus far has been a pleasure to watch and it’s criminal just how overdue you are for another World championship. And even though your poverty team is starting to suck once more and mine is growing into a dynasty, I will not give you shit; I’m just that good of a mate. I’ve got no doubt the best for you in EAW just around the corner.

AAAANNNNDDDD this where it gets sappy. The other person is Cameron Ella Ava. I don’t think I can ever put into words how wonderful of a person you are. There’s few people I’ve ever met who are as genuine, thoughtful, selfless and kind as you are and I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to know you, to have you as a friend. Thank you for everything. For every night you kept me up, every game of C4, for every troll, for every awkward moment. At times I’ve been radio silent and barely said a word in weeks but you are the best thing to come out of the last four years and for the last year and a half, you’ve been one of the biggest reasons why I’ve wanted to stick around. Thank you for being you and never forget that how incredible of a person you are. I know how hard you work and you deserve the world in every aspect of you life and I hope you get it. Also my dancing Indian man is the greatest gif of all time /end.

I want to thank the likes of SK, Lars, Ahren and TLA for making this last title reign my best yet. You all brought out some of my best promos, some of my best hitters. Likewise, any opponent I’ve had for whatever it might have been, King of Elite, Cash In The Vault, Tag Team Championships, New Breed Championship, EAW Championship; thank you for making me deliver my best. I want to thank Impact for what has been an incredible, brilliantly written feud and perhaps one of my all time favourites. We’ve bumped a few times in the chat but I’ve always had respect for what you’ve done here and always been inspired by your work. Facing you was something I’ve wanted to do for such a long time and I’m incredibly thankful that I’ve got the opportunity to do so. I want to thank anyone who has written my character whether it was in a segment or a match. I want to thank everyone who makes the chat and these forums such fun and joyful places; you drive the community, you make this place what it is. I want to thank anyone who believed in me as a promoer in the early days, anyone who liked the graphics I made and fuck even anyone who gave critical feedback. I’m sure I’m forgetting people, like I said I’m fucking shit at speeches so if I have a reason to be thankful to you for any reason at all, thank you.

Truthfully I don’t know what the future holds for me. One moment I think I do, the other I find myself questioning what I think. If you were to ask me four years ago if I would be here in the EAW Hall of Fame, having accomplished what I’ve accomplished, having the friendships I’ve made, I probably would have thrown you in the fucking sea. But alas, here I am, still standing, in the Hall of Fame with a number of accomplishments and surrounded by incredible people. I don’t know what lies ahead for me – I wish I did because I’m an impatient cunt. But as long as this place remains, this community remains, I’ll always have a place to escape the madness of my life. Still, there is still a list of things I want to accomplish, matches I want to have, moments I want to write and share. Pain For Pride has continued to grow ever since I got here and it reflects EAW as a whole better than anything else. This place is only going to grow and the future will always be bright for people here. Thank you for the last four years, thank you for allowing me to create, thank you for being such a wonderful community. Thank you for this spot in the Hall of Fame. Let’s raise a shoey to the next four years and hope they’re as good as the last! THANK YOU.

( “Kashmir” comes back on, and Jamie O’Hara gives a wave to the fans who embrace him with a ton of cheers. Jamie is escorted by a model over to the red carpet section, and he’s handed his Hall of Fame ring inside the mahogany container before taking photo ops with Cameron Ella Ava and other family members. )

( Commissioner Daniels walks back on stage clapping for Jamie himself. )

Commissioner Daniels: A real “top bloke” as the Aussies like to say. Seriously man, what an honor to have that guy among the Hall of Fame ranks. There’s no question he’s the greatest to ever do it. However of course before we conclude with this evening, there is still one person who still have yet to induct… and from all of the stories, all of the lives she’s changed, all of the relationships she’s made; there is no doubt in any of our minds and any of our hearts that of all members of the EAW Hall of Fame, she is the most iconic of them all.

( //www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLYGY6gvAb4 )

( We open up to Xander Payne who is in a confessional. )

Xander Payne: I remember when I was home with my family, we would all gather and enjoy the EAW live shows and events. However, there was this one woman in particular that my son idolized. Her name was Brody Sparks. When I bought my son his first Brody Sparks t-shirt, he was smiling and crying in joy. When I took my son to Empire-branded events, he was so thrilled to see his idol. Then, when I took my son backstage to meet Brody Sparks, it was awe-inspiring. It was inspiring to see my son look at his idol, a person who he’s looked up to. Brody… was a special person… She was extremely kind, she was so caring, and she was so friendly. She even said that she would put forward my name to the EAW scouts. Of course, it took months for that, but I really owe it to Brody. Not only did she inspire my son, she inspired me and others to keep doing what we do. So, Brody Sparks. I know you’re not here with us, but you’re here with us in spirit. brings out a t-shirt I have this t-shirt in my hands. This t-shirt was the first t-shirt I bought for my son and the one that you signed. Therefore, I am giving you this. Take the Hall Of Fame induction and this t-shirt as a gift. Take it because you damn well deserve it.

( We see Layla Lockhart in a confessional. )

Layla Lockhart: Brody was my introduction; before I signed with EAW, before Revolt even existed she told me to keep at it, to be happy with who I am… without Brody Sparks there is no Layla Lockhart, bottom line. Love you always Brody… I still regret I missed the chance to share the stage with you…

( We see TLA sitting in a confessional. )

TLA: TLA: Screenshot wizards be on high alert for this induction. Salt tweets gonna pour out I hope Kendra watch what she say ain’t wanna make this shit political. Nah for real Brody Sparks was a guaranteed Hall of Fame induction literally the first person to come into my mind when I was speculating on the picks. Not just cuz of how it ended but cuz of how she lived and continues to live on thru this fed. She brought out the best in everyone she worked with. Some of my best matches I’ve ever written were for her on Empire. Everybody who knew her got some incredible memories and even if you never got to know her personally she left y’all with some memories in her sexy work on the promo page. Most definitely an all time unique character in EAW ain’t nobody ever gonna forget her. We got a spiked dildo hangin’ on the wall for you chica.

(Cameron Ella Ava, Consuela Rose Ava and Ms. Extreme are seen in the confessional.)

Cameron Ella Ava: Meghan Christine Vaughan was such a blessing to our EAW family. We are just not deserving of her. I never thought we were deserving of such a kind-hearted and fantastic human being like Brody Sparks. She was someone who really was not afraid to go after the unpopular opinion and stand next to it for dear life. She is probably the most deserving female in this HOF wing because she was influential. She was someone who could have been bigger if she were alive today. There was no doubt that she would have been awed by the transformation that our company has been through these with all of these new crops of talent. She would have been in the forefront and taken her place as the face of the Women’s Division.

Ms. Extreme: Legends only. There was truly no one in this class that is iconic as she is. Just like to those in the locker room, I looked up to her so much. Just in her mannerisms, but her work ethic and my mind constantly go back to her work ethic during Road to Redemption week 2017. She went hard when cutting her promos. You could feel the raw emotion whenever she spoke. By looking at the type of work that she put in, I would not be surprised if she would have won the match. I thought it would have been deserving of her. I thought her Specialists Championship reign was fantastic! I still get chills on my arms whenever I talk about it. Just watching her and Consuela fight at last year’s Pain for Pride made me want to get back into the squared circle and I could not thank Brody enough for that.

Consuela Rose Ava: My perfect rival. Ever since Brody was announced as the second inductee to the EAW Hall of Fame, my mind constantly went back to our Specialists Championship match at last year’s Pain for Pride. She brought the best out of me. She made me into the woman I am today and I cannot thank her enough for her. There are a few people in EAW that are able to push me to succeed and do my best and Brody Sparks was one of those people. I miss her calling me “Cuntsuela”. I miss her trying to stir the pot on Twitter against me and have us just bickering for hours on end. Most importantly, I miss my friend. I miss the person that we are honoring tonight. I miss Brody Sparks.

Cameron, Consuela and Extreme: We love you, Brody! Congrats on your induction!

( Return to the arena. )

Crowd: “BRODY! BRODY! BRODY! BRODY!”

Announcer: Introducing the first of four participants to induct Brody into the Hall of Fame… CHELSEAAAAA CROOOOWWWEEEE!!!!

(‘Glory and Gore’ by Lorde plays as Chelsea Crowe makes her way onto the stage and walks to the podium. She is wearing a black dress with a blue spark emblem pin attached to the left side of the chest. The music fades out as she prepares to speak.)

Chelsea: First of all, I want to say how honoured I am to be one of four people to be inducting Brody into the Hall of Fame. She was someone I admired even before I joined EAW, so to be a part of this celebration of her career means a lot to me. From our first interaction, Brody was someone I respected and loved. She was honest, she was funny, and she was wise beyond her years.

I could say she was a star, but the reality is that she was the unsung hero of EAW. She was the one who supported people behind the scenes, she came to people to tell them how much she enjoyed their work, she was the one who people overlooked because she was so humble backstage. She even overlooked herself because she cared for others so much. When she took on the nickname ‘the Spark of EAW’, I don’t think she realised just how true it was. Brody was the Spark of EAW in that she lit up the locker room, she inspired people to do their best, and she was the life of EAW. In fact, she still is the life of EAW, which is a testament to her influence on every single member of this company.

It speaks volumes to her character that two people like she and I, who were from different sides of the world, could develop such a strong bond in such a short time. And though it’s bittersweet, I’m glad that in the wake of her passing, people are realising just how good she was. We’d talk about her future, what she wanted to accomplish, and she wanted to be known for her achievements. She wished that people would recognise her work and what it had helped her to achieve during her career. The current longest-reigning Specialists Champion – a legacy I hope I’m doing proud as the current champion – the winner of the first-ever Women’s Elimination Chamber match, someone I know was a future Women’s World Champion. And now, a Hall of Famer.

This induction is not out of respect because she passed away, it is to celebrate the success she created through her own work, and to honour the legacy she left behind. The legacy of one of the best women to ever step foot in an EAW ring, the legacy of one of the most loved and all-around respected members of this community, and the legacy of my as well as many other people’s friend. The brightest spark fades the fastest, and unfortunately, that was the case with Brody. But though she’s no longer with us, her light will continue to resonate through EAW – and now, with her induction, the Hall of Fame.

( Chelsea Crowe walks off stage to a round of applause. )

Announcer: The next individual to induct Brody Sparks into the Hall of Fame… HARVEYYYYY YORRRKEEEE!!!!

(“Back to School (Mini Maggit)” by Deftones plays as Harvey Yorke makes his way to the stage and up to the podium. He is dressed in a coral suit jacket with navy blue pants with a tie to match. On the left side of his jacket is a custom-made light blue spark emblem lapel pin.)

Harvey: When I received word that I was amongst one of the few to induct Brody Sparks into the Hall of Fame tonight, I was shocked. Today, I’m joined by those who were close friends with a true trailblazer in women’s wrestling. And together, we’re here to honor her legacy.

I may not have been around in EAW for very long, but Brody was one of the few who would reach out to me and made sure I felt welcomed. She had such a vibrant personality that most lacked. She was a selfless lass, always putting others’ needs before her own. Within a short amount of my time here, I no longer saw Brody as someone whom I bonded with over our love for music and comics, but rather, as a true friend and motivator. Whether her influence was direct or indirect, it was Brody who helped pave the way for my own evolution, not just in professional wrestling, but in my personal life as well. And I know a majority of the lads and lasses in the back feel the same way.

My friendship with Brody showed me something very important. It shouldn’t matter if you knew someone for years and years, but rather how they treated you as a friend. Brody and I may not go back as far as, say her and Stephanie Matsuda. But the lessons that she taught me, the advice we shared, and the laughs we shared along the way through this journey are some of the memories I’ll hold in my heart forever. That same passion that Brody held for this sport and this company will live on, be it through her own legacy and accolades, or through the spirit that she left inside her friends, family, and trainees. I’m not going to spend the rest of my life wallowing in how I should’ve gotten to know her better early on, because it’s not something she would’ve wanted me to do. She was someone who I viewed as my light in my darkness. Brody was able to ignite the world with just one spark, and it is up to all of us around the world to carry that light the same way that she did.

To induct my beloved friend into the Hall of Fame means more than respecting the icon that she was. It’s about acknowledging the icon and legend that will go on to be immortalized forever. There was so much that Brody wished to accomplish during her time in EAW, and I could only hope that the EAW Universe does her proud by accepting her into the Hall of Fame with open arms.

Meagan Christine Vaughan, I can only thank you for putting everything your heart and soul into EAW. I can ensure you that even though our sport is constantly evolving, that the spark will continue to light the way for generations to come.

(Harvey steps off the podium. He kisses his fist as he raises it in the air, mouthing the words ‘I love you’ before stepping to the side of the stage.)

Announcer: Up next, the third to induct Brody Sparks into the EAW Hall of Fame… ANDRREEEAAAAAAAA VALENTIINNNEEEE!!!!

( ‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX plays and Andrea Valentine walks out to the stage already emotional wearing a dazzling pink rhinestone dress. She walks up to the podium and adjusts the microphone, letting the crowd settle down before speaking. )

Andrea Valentine: When I first met Brody Sparks, I just had this feeling that we’d become friends. Brody easily had one of the more colorful personalities of anyone I’d ever met and all this time later I can say that she was still just as insightful, was just as funny, and kept on making dirty jokes from the time we met – she never changed. Brody was as much of a free spirit then as she was leading up to her final days and to have always remained considerate and constantly looked out for her friends, she was one of the best human beings I think any of us could have ever encountered. But just as great of a friend she was to me and so many others, she was equally as great when she appeared in front of the cameras and showed she could be one of the most successful stars to come through EAW’s doors. Much like with everything else she ventured into or even took up as a simple hobby, Brody excelled as an Elitist and she excelled so much that a spot for her in the Hall of Fame was practically guaranteed – and while she may not be here to see it for herself, I knew her hard work would pay off for something as big as this.

When I first found out that Brody would be going into the Hall of Fame, it put such a smile on my face because she had shown to be deserving of such an honor during the time she’d spent in EAW. Regardless of whether she’d be here or not, I knew that one day she’d have her name hung up among the stars that helped make this company what it is because to come from the beginnings that she did and rise through the rankings in the way that she did there was no denying it. There was no way one could look at everything she did for Empire, for EAW, for each and every one of us, and not recognize that Brody embodied everything it meant to dream big, to know that those dreams could never truly be out of reach when they’re constructed by the same person who envisioned them, and to then go chase it down until it all became an undeniable reality. She was exactly that for me, so to know I get to play a part in something as grand as this had me so overcome with excitement because she had played SUCH an important factor in me being here today.

When I came back I was anxious, nervous as hell, and wondering just where I’d fit into the landscape of what EAW had become in the months I had stepped away from under the lights of Empire. Even with all those nerves though, I was looking forward to it and didn’t think anyone could be as excited as I was to know that I’d be a part of everything again – except Brody was practically bursting at the seams with so much joy that it was like she might as well as have signed her own first contract all over again. But that’s just the kind of person Brody was, someone who was genuinely so invested in her friends’ aspirations, who honestly wanted to see them succeed and show off the potential they had because for as many great things as we all might’ve seen her accomplish, she was all that more selfless. For everything she was able to do, she never felt that she was too good for anyone and at the end of the day was always humble, even when she knew that she was held in high regard. Everything she’d done I knew would ultimately go on to help land her the spot she’s been awarded now and I think back to all the moments she had along the way that made her the unique individual that she was. But regardless of how many outstanding moments she’d already had or how long her reign had been once it ended, Brody’s determination to achieve more was only strengthened and in my opinion, that’s what made her so amazing and so worthy of going into the Hall of Fame.

I think back to the conversations we had before I was even in EAW, and they were right after she’d won the Specialists title when she told me how astounding it was to have beaten all the women she did and sometime after that there was another about how she had come to start a record-setting reign of her own. As we spoke, her commitment to EAW shined through, how much she loved being here couldn’t have been more blatant, I could tell how much she had wanted to be seen as one the best to ever do it and I knew she could because she always felt the need to prove herself even with so many others feeling like she might’ve already cemented her spot in history. That continued to prove to be true when last year’s Road to Redemption was just around the corner, and the pressure was on, it was heavy, but I watched as she intended to handle it with a cool, calm collectedness; she knew what that Chamber match was, what it represented… but it was in the end, that there was one woman missing from one of those pods…

Winning that Women’s World Championship would’ve been the moment of all moments for her. In her eyes, it was her chance to silence anyone who doubted her. In the days leading up to it, she was confident, she was sure, conscious of what had gotten her there, what would’ve gotten her the win she was determined to get and there was no telling her otherwise. With how she expressed to me how badly she wanted to win, what the implications of that match meant to her, I wholeheartedly believe she would’ve been walking away with that title to her name. But she was taken from us before that could happen, and the woman who said she’d be there for me through anything and everything was gone; I felt like I was at such a loss that I didn’t know what to do with myself. Brody, who I looked to for support and who’d tell me “end it, you got this,” whenever it seemed like I needed reassurance – she wasn’t there anymore and I didn’t want to accept that as being true. It just didn’t seem real. But I remembered Brody would’ve wanted me to keep going, to continue to be as passionate about making it in EAW as she had been – and that’s what else was so admirable about her. She was passionate in everything she did, she took the utmost pride in how she’d been able to accomplish what she had under her own terms but she was always kind, generous, and thoughtful of those around her.

Brody was and will always be one of the best friends I ever had. She was one of the kindest, warmest souls in this world that I was lucky enough to be able to meet so many years ago and I was even more privileged to be able to call her my friend. I never really got to tell her that word for word but I would like to think she knew that anyway because there isn’t a day that goes by when I’m not thinking about her. I just have so many great memories of who she was, how amazing she was in the ring and out of it as someone who was committed and went out of her way to be helpful to others even when she might’ve been feeling down herself. This just makes me so proud and makes me miss her just that much more. From the amazing creations she was able to produce with her artistic mind that I’d tell her I was always jealous of, to the funny conversations we shared where her sexual and suggestive humor never failed to put a smile on my face, even the days she’d go into always great detail for me about the weed she’d gotten her hands on – I miss it all…

There have been so many times I wanted to send her a message, tell her some of the few things that have gone on and the hardest thing about that is knowing I wouldn’t be getting a response because it’s a constant reminder she’s no longer here. Then I look around and see her presence still lingers here because in some way, shape, or form I feel like we all carry a piece of her – who she was and her story – with us. She was and is a pillar of our community, someone whose name is synonymous with EAW, and who exemplified compassion, friendship, ambition and so much more that there just aren’t enough words that’ll really ever do her enough justice. But at that same time, I believe everyone would be in agreement when I say there’ll never be anyone else like her, she’ll always remain unforgettable, and she’ll always be missed because what made Brody Sparks who she was in front of the cameras and away from them is what makes her iconic. That’s why when you think about what she was able to do in her time here and what kind person she was, you can’t help but know that without a shadow of a doubt she deserves this honor. She deserves this kind of recognition, and that’s why I honestly couldn’t be any more proud of her.

Congratulations, Brody. You were always an inspiration, always more than just a spark and instead an incredible five-foot-one rarity and wonder to this world; a one of a kind sensation and friend. But for everyone who might’ve not known before knows now for an absolute fact what I always knew to be true – that you were and will always be an iconic legend unlike any other.

( Andrea Valentine takes her leave to another round of applause. )

Announcer: And lastly, inducting Brody Sparks into the Hall of Fame and accepting the award on her behalf… EAW WOMENS CHAMPION STEPHANIE MATSUDA, AND BRODY’S SISTER MONICA VAUGHAN!!!!!

( “Kill Jill (Cloudy Remix)” by Archie & Sizzle plays and Stephanie Matsuda walks out alongside Monica Vaughan, as the two wear matching black dresses and get a big ovation from the fans. )

Stephanie Matsuda: I like to think I have the perfect things to say in my mind when I think about Brody Sparks, but I don’t. What I can attest is that every moment we shared, every match we’ve had, and every encounter was iconic. This was a phrase Brody would use to describe her favorite things- and people in life. If Brody thought of you as iconic, then you was cool with her. She was the social butterfly of EAW, usually the first face you see walk through the door, and the last face to leave. The woman born Meagan Christine Vaughan was a soul born for success. She enjoyed life as much as she worked hard. She never hesitated to be herself, and could hold her own against anyone, both in the ring and out. This reminds me of when I first met Brody in the corridor of a house show. She was chatting with Mr. DEDEDE himself, who was going on about his foot fetish (laughs). Yeah, I know. Instead of being offended, she playfully chastised him, telling the boss himself to “end it.” That’s another catchphrase of Brody’s and trust that girl was full of them. She was the heart and soul of this company – you could feel her spirit all around us. It’s almost like she’s infected us with her creativity, warmth, and her insatiable desire to be the best at what she loved.

(pauses)

Stephanie: We didn’t always get along. When I forged my own path after The Coven, she was hurt. At the time she couldn’t understand why I felt a group of people whom consider me their own family. But, she didn’t see what I saw- no until later at least. When she decided to go solo, that’s when we met up again and started spending more time together. That’s also when she introduced me to a woman who I can’t see myself without – Monica Cathleen Mendez-Vaughan, her old half-sister. It’s odd, because at the time she was still upset with me even after finally seeing what I saw with our former stable. But yet, she wanted me to be with her sister, to watch over her. It wasn’t until Brody left us till I found out the truth – deep down inside she looked up to me. Monica…she told me about how Brody was my biggest fans and wanted nothing more than to see me reach heights she always knew I could touch with my hands. The ironic thing was I was just as big a fan of hers as she was of me. When I saw those last promos she did for Road to redemption…there was a fire in her eyes…a spark if you will. In the years I’ve been in this business, I never saw someone so determined as she was that week. When I walked into Brooklyn to win the Iconic Cup, I was motivated by her words, her spirit! She guided me through those three matches – heck, even now I can feel her standing beside me, watching over me. It’s why I call myself the Iconic War Queen – because I feel that her spirit, values, her standard for success lives inside me. It lives inside of all of us, guiding us to live out our best lives, to put this company on the map and most of all…appreciate life and live to our fullest!”

(looks over at Monica)

Stephanie: You know, this speech shouldn’t be mine alone. While I have plenty more to say, I feel the woman I love…Brody’s sister…”

(lifts Monica’s hand to show off a shiny ring)

Stephanie: My fiancee should have the last word regarding Brody’s legacy. Monica Vaughan everyone.

(kisses her lover and steps to the side as Monica steps up to the podium)

Monica: Thank you, Stephanie.

(Monica sniffs a little)

Monica: I could begin by saying what was going through my mind when my dear sister passed, but I rather discuss the celebration of a life that was lived well and without regrets. Brody’s life reminds me that of a butterfly – it was short, but while it existed it was a sight to behold. Everywhere she went, she would turn heads. For her, it didn’t matter of it was a positive or negative reaction – just as long as she made you react towards her.

(Monica closes her eyes briefly)

Monica: This analogy of a butterfly reminds me of one of Meagan’s favorite Deftones songs, “Xerces.” The title refers to the Xerces Blue, a butterfly native to the San Francisco valley, who became extinct once urban development of the area began. It was last seen during the middle of the 20th century, a whole species wiped out by the ravages of time and evolution. Brody used to say that if she was to leave this world, it would be like that of the Xerces Blue – brief, but unforgettable.

(Monica shakes a little while Stephanie holds her. She holds the award in her hands and sighs)

Monica: If anyone of you in the audience or at home don’t mind, I would like to sing these lyrics that she defined her life by.

(Stephanie takes a step back to give Monica some room as she composed herself)

“ Universe surrounds
When you’re ready
It waits
For us to
To leave this earth
Come on, they’re calling your name
Out
I don’t know
I could stay or leave
Right away
Cause the comet can take us
All the way through
Goodbye
Say Heaven
Know no one
I’ll be waving
Goodbye
Say Heaven
Know no one
I’ll be waving
Goodbye
Reason to see
Everything looks the same
I don’t know
If…”

(small tears escape from Monica’s eyes as she utters the final word of the song)

“Goodbye.”

(Monica looks up, holding the Hall of Fame award)

Monica: You did it, “sweets”.

( Stephanie Matsuda pulls out a concealed item from the podium that they are standing behind, and Monica removes the veil to reveal: )

( An EAW Womens World Championship, with custom “Hypnotic Heretic” plates on the side, and the nameplate on the championship boldly reading: Brody Sparks. )

Monica: You became iconic.

(Stephanie and Monica embrace for a moment as a picture of Brody appears on the screen behind them. They both smile at the portrait as the audience gives them a standing ovation. They turn to face the audience and the two walk off stage with the others as the EAW “Hall of Fame” music begins to play.)

( We get a final view of the EAW Womens World Championship reading “Brody Sparks” on the nameplate, which sits alone on the podium and remains the last thing to be seen on the screen before the camera fades to black. )

( EAW logo buzzes )
