Del Rey: Introducing first, from Moscow, Russia, weighing in at 201 pounds, COLTOOOON “CRYBABY” PETROOOOV!
Knight: An unusual character in EAW, Colton Petrov makes his way to the ring where he has to square off against two other men. Petrov has declared he does not belong here, but that’s yet to be proven. Can he do it tonight?

Del Rey: Introducing next, from Santa Monica, California, weighing in at 211 pounds, JAAAACK HAAAAZEEEEE!

Del Rey: Introducing last, from Berea, Kentucky, weighing in at 220 pounds, JOOOHNNYYYY WALKEEEEEER!

PETROV WITH A CLOTHESLINE ON WALKER DROPPING HIM DOWN, PETROV TURNS AROUND AND LOOK WHO IT IS! JACK HAZE WITH A SLINGSHOT SPEAR OUT OF NOWHERE!

Ruggerio: But Jack Haze is there in time to break the cover! Haze blasting Walker with some vicious elbows and forearms, sending him into the turnbuckles. Haze backs up, before CHARGING AT WALKER WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE!!! Haze doesn’t stop there, as he puts Walker onto the top turnbuckle. Haze, setting up for a Superplex, but Walker is doing his best to stay on the turnbuckle. Meanwhile, Petrov has gotten back to his feet, and is going towards Haze and Walker.

CAUSING HAZE TO ALSO DROP WALKER WITH THE SUPERPLEX!!!!! PETROV CRAWLS ONTO HAZE FOR THE COVER!!!!
Ref: One! Two! Thre-
Knight: JACK HAZE, SOMEHOW!!! HE GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!!! MEANWHILE WALKER HAS TO ROLL OUT OF THE RING!! Colton Petrov, the only man, capable of even standing right now. Colton, managing to get up to the top rope, perhaps looking for an elbow drop, AND HE GOES FOR IT!!! THE BLESSED HEART, BUT HAZE JUST BARELY MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, NOW LEAVING ALL THREE MEN FLOORED!!! All three men, grounded, but now it’s Walker who is using the steel steps, to try and get back to his feet. Colton Petrov, still hurt from the failed Blessed Heart, BUT HAS NO TIME TO RECOVER AS JOHNNY WALKER HITS THE MOONSHOT ON HIM!!!!! Walker, not having enough strength to cover him though. Meanwhile, Jack Haze is waiting on the second rope, as Walker gets to his feet. Haze, attempting a drop kick, but Walker dodges it! But HAZE!! MANAGING TO KIP UP, AFTER WHAT HE WENT THROUGH IN THIS MATCH!!! Walker is surprised, but charges right for Haze. Haze though, drops Walker with a drop toe hold!

Del Rey: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…. JOHNNY, WALKKKKERRRRR!!!!!!!
( “Don’t stop Believin’” plays as Walker rolls out of the ring, exhausted.)

( Commercial Break: Chris Elite vs. Xander Payne, tonight on Battleground! )
(Maria Del Rey is standing in the center of the ring to announce the next match.)
( DING! DING! DING! )
Maria Del Rey: The following contest is set for one fall
Crowd: ONE FALL!
Maria Del Rey: Introducing first…weighing in at 135 pounds and hailing from Bronx, New York, The Dirti Diva Amber Keys!
(“Easy Target” by Blink 182 plays as Amber Keys makes her way down to the ring, met by the booing crowd.)
Clark Ruggiero: Despite winning last week’s Main Event Amber has not earned the praise of fans very much. She has proven that she’s willing to bend and even break the rules to get the victory.
Ben Knight: Maybe, Clark, but she indeed did win! You can’t take that away from her, she’s an absolute legend in this company! So what if she cuts a few corners? It’s the result that matters!
Maria Del Rey: Introducing her opponent, from Christchurch, New Zealand, weighing in at 155 pounds, Miss No Fucks Given, Harlow Reichert!
(“All-Star” by Smash Mouth plays as Harlow make her way down the ramp. She’s met with cheers from the appreciative crowd who have recently started getting behind her.)
Ben Knight: Now here is someone I don’t understand, she’s “Miss No Fucks Given”, yet she apparently does care now? Is it supposed to be like calling a fat guy “Tiny”?
Clark Ruggiero: Visiting from Empire, Harlow has recently been on a resurgence! She’s always been competitive, and now wants to see what she can do against a former Women’s champion in Amber Keys! This should be a great match!
(As Maria exits the ring the official calls for the bell signalling the start of the match.)
Ben Knight: The two competitors circle each other…collar and elbow tie up initiated from Amber Keys! Looks like she’s having some trouble trying to overpower the larger Harlow. Amber changes tactics and whips Harlow to the ropes! Dropping down to avoid Miss No Fucks Given…Amber with a hiptoss on the rebound! Harlow is down!
Clark Ruggiero: She’s back up just as quickly though! Amber, seemingly startled by Harlow’s rebound, quickly delivers a hard forearm shot into the chest of Reichert, followed by another! Harlow is driven back into the corner! Amber, not relenting, draws back her hand…BIG CHOP! A welt raises on Harlow’s chest from the blow…Amber is jeering at the crowd now, she needs to be careful, Harlow is still very much in this match! Amber draws back for another…NO! Harlow catches Amber’s arm and positions her in the corner! Harlow draws back…BIG CHOP! Harlow isn’t done though, she climbs to the middle turnbuckle and starts driving her fist into the forehead of the Dirti Diva!
Crowd: 1! 2! 3! 4! 5! 6! 7! 8! 9!
Ben Knight: Those are close fists! That referee needs to step in! Harlow pulls way back for the last blow…NO! Amber went for Harlow’s eyes! What a move! Harlow, clutching her eyes, drops to the mat, stumbling away from Amber! Sensing an opportunity, Amber hits a running head scissors! Still reeling from the eye rake, Halow rolls to the outside! Amber has a head of steam, Clark!
Clark Ruggiero: TOPE SUICIDA! Amber Keys takes flight against Harlow, slamming her back into the barricade! Amber has evil in her eyes, she pulls Harlow to her feet and drags her over to the stairs! She’s got Harlow’s tights hooked and looks like…NO! Harlow blocks the suplex attempt and slams the Dirti Diva face first into the ring apron before rolling her back into the ring. The crowd is firmly behind Harlow as she rolls into the ring after Amber and starts pummeling her! Amber rolls onto her stomach, protecting her face, but Harlow bounces off the ropes and hits a double stomp to Amber’s back! It looks like she forced the wind from the Dirti Diva! Harlow rolls her over for the pin…
Amber isn’t beat yet!
Ben Knight: That’s right, she’s not, Clark! She’s a former champion! Hey! Harlow needs to watch pulling Amber up by her hair! Harlow slips behind Amber…belly-to-back suplex! She then quickly locks in a dragon sleeper!She’s trying to wrap her legs around Amber, locking in that body scissors! Amber scrambles, though, and manages to catch the bottom rope with her foot , causing the referee to break the hold!
Clark Ruggiero: Harlow is staying on top of Amber, she pulls her to her feet again…LMAO! That Brainbuster to the knee of Harlow! Looks like Amber may have taken that harder than normal! She’s indicating to the official that she’s hurt! The referee stops Harlow as he checks on Amber. The Dirti Diva is trying to pull herself to her feet by the ropes, standing shakily as the referee looks to be checking her for a concussion…
Ben Knight: I can’t believe this! Harlow has put into danger the career of a former champion! Amber is an absolute legend, and now she’s being checked by the ringside doctor. Harlow is beside herself, as it should be! Harlow has backed away from Amber and the official….WAIT, IT WAS A RUSE! AMBER SEES AN OPENING…AMBER ALERT! The Dirti Diva flattens Harlow with the spear! As the referee gets into position, Amber gets a handful of tights and makes the pin!
Clark Ruggiero: Harlow kicked out just a second too late, as the referee’s hand came down for the three count, making The Dirti Diva the winner of the match!
Maria: Ladies and gentlemen, here is your winner, by pinfall, The Dirti Diva, Amber Keys!
(“Easy Target” plays as Amber slides out of the ring and makes her way up the ramp to the booing crowds dismay. Remaining in the ring, Harlow is looking very upset with herself over the loss.)
(Commercial Break: No Regards, Live on October 27th)
( The camera fades backstage as Chris Elite is seen entering the building giving a smile to the camera, while Chase Vantigon is seen running after him, but Chris does not notice him at all. After Chase calls Chris a few times, he finally realises Chase and stops to speak. )
Chris: Were you chasing me, Chase?
Vantigon: Uhh, yes, I would say? But now that I got you here, can you tell us why you challenged Xander Payne in a match tonight?
Chris: Why did I challenge him? My phone has been buzzing about this one. There’s one simple reason I challenged Xander Payne. To stop the dickeatery. This guy has had me in his mouth for weeks. Everytime he spoke about his upcoming match there was a line about beating Chris Elite, every single time. This bozo really thinks he’s better than me because he won a single match in a dirty way. Akekekeke.
Vantigon: Your presence here has once more sold out the entire arena. How does it feel to be here?
Chris: You know, it brings back my NEO memories. Smaller arenas, having to face amateurs, it’s just like the good old days. I like the fact we can have matches like this, even not being part of the roster. It gives me more opportunity to beat motherfuckers up.
Vantigon: Do you have anything to say about your moving from Voltage to Showdown?
Chris: I mean, what can I say? New brand, same Chris. I’ll continue to do what I’ve always done. Changing the brand is not really going to affect me, because I know I can shine wherever I go if I’m focused. I had a great time on Voltage, but now it’s time for a new challenge, new roster, new faces. And now if you excuse me, I have to get ready for my match. See ya.
Vantigon: Thank you Mr. Elite and good luck tonight.
( Chris Elite goes away as Chase Vantigon looks at him before the camera fades to black. )
( The Camera shows a pan view of the arena as it cuts back to the ring. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Maria Del Ray: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! AND IS FOR THE EAW NEW BREED CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!

Maria Del Ray: Introducing first! From Cologne, Germany, weighing in at 219 pounds……. THE KAAAIIIIIISSSSSEEEERRRRRR…. XAAAAAAVVVIEEEERRRR ARRRRNOLLLLLDDDdDDD
Ben Knight: This is the biggest match in Xavier Arnold’s career. He has a big-time opportunity to win the EAW New Breed Championship tonight and that’s an opportunity only a few get.
Clark Ruggiero: If you take a look at how Xavier Arnold earned this opportunity, fast forward to his match against Eric Crane in a No Disqaulification match. That match was borderline brutal and imagine what Xavier Arnold will do just to take advantage of an opportunity like this!
( Once Xavier confidently walks over to his corner, ‘Make A Move’ by Icon For Hire blares throughout the arena. The crowd erupts while Raven Roberts walks out of the curtains with the EAW New Breed Championship around her waist. She soaks in the boos of the crowd while she spreads her arms out.)
Clark Ruggiero: This is her first EAW New Breed Championship defense after taking it off of Xander Payne at Territorial Invasion and her first opponent comes in the form of the formidable Xavier Arnold!
Ben Knight: She has wreaked havoc all over the land at Empire, who knows what she has in store for the New Breed division here in EAW!
( DING! DING! DING! )
Clark Ruggiero: There’s the bell! Both individuals circling around the ring, looking for a flaw to take advantage of! Xavier and Raven start up a collar-and-elbow tie-up, but Xavier powers himself out and takes Raven down and applies a headlock onto her.
Ben Knight: Both individuals know what they’re doing when it comes to submission and manipulation of the joints. Both experienced in mixed martial arts and other submission styles, this is going to be a good one! Now Raven trying to fight out of the headlock, sending body shots to Xavier but it does no affect! Raven pushes Xavier into the ropes AND XAVIER RICOCHETS BACK INTO RAVEN WITH A POWERFUL SHOULDER BLOCK!!!! Raven gets up right up as Xavier runs the ropes and TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A SHOULDER BLOCK OF HER OWN!!! SHE TURNS XAVIER INSIDE OUT!!!!

AND PROPELS HER ONTO THE TURNBUCKLES!! RAVEN BOUNCES OFF THE TURNBUCKLES AND TURNS XAVIER INSIDE OUT WITH A DEVASTATING CLOTHESLINE!!!! WHAT A MATCH!!!!!
Ben Knight: Both individuals have done their homework for this match! Xavier on the apron, using the ropes to get up while Raven is slowly crawling over to Arnold!

( Crane grabs a mic )
Eric Crane: Message…… delivered…
( Eric Crane drops the mic and slowly exits the squared circle as it fades to commercial break )
( The camera fades in backstage where Xavier Arnold is shown going to his lockeroom with Ian Ross, holding his back as suddenly a voice calls him. )
???: Look who we have here.
( Xavier turns around and looks at the man. Ian Ross gets in between Xavier and the man to separate them. )
Xavier Arnold: What do you want from me? Huh? You think you can cheap shot like that? Why don’t you do it to my face?
Crane: Hey, hey, chill man. I get it, you’re upset after Raven absolutely killed you, but don’t be mean!
Xavier: What the hell do you want from me?
Crane: What do I want? Hmmm, it’s simple. I want a rematch. You, me, ladder match. Next Monday. What are you saying?
Xavier: You really want this? I don’t want to waste my time on somebody like you.
Crane: Is it? Or maybe you’re afraid?
Xavier: Oh you think so? Alright, you got it. I already beat you once, it won’t be a problem doing it again. But think where you’re getting yourself. I’m too big for you.
Crane: Hahahaha, nice joke. Don’t worry about that, I’ve got everything planned. I’ll get my payback and prove I’m better than you. I should’ve been the one facing Raven tonight.
Xavier: Yeah sure, loser. Don’t keep annoying me or everything will get worse next week.

( “Odee” by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie plays one more time as Chris Elite gets his hand raised by the ref. Xander Payne rolls out of the ring and falls on the outside while the arena explode in cheers for Chris Elite. )
Knight: What a way to win for Chris Elite! Reversal after reversal, Elite was finally able to pull this one off. Props to him.
Ruggerio: This is big for Chris Elite after joining Showdown. Beating a former New Breed champion and getting his payback for his loss a couple of weeks ago, mentally this could really impact his future going forward.
Knight: That’s about it for tonight ladies and gentlemen, we’ll catch you up next monday!
