Dynasty 12/14/2018

( EAW Intro plays )

( Recap airs to last week’s’ wedding edition of Dynasty, where many members of the EAW roster and staff were in attendance and seated around ringside, on the ramp and on the stage. We saw Henrique Fernandez, DDD’s best man, and Candice Ava, Carmen Ava’s maid of honor in the ring with the ordained minister. We see DEDEDE make his entrance to the ring, and see Carmen Ava slowly walk to the ring with the wedding bells ringing and the organ playing. As Mr. DEDEDE and Carmen Ava stood side by side, they confessed their wedding vows to each other, with Cameron Ella Ava looking on as her emotional mother breaks down while professing her love for DDD. As the minister asked for any objections to the marriage, we see DDD giving Cameron a death glare, but Cameron does not have it in her to interrupt her mother’s special day despite much internal conflict on her face. We then see Camille Ava attempt to bum rush the ring with a Kendo stick, but she is hauled away by the security tightly guarding the ring. DDD and Carmen are declared “husband and wife”, and share a passionate kiss much to the disliking of the crowd. DDD then offers a final dance to the tune of “Heaven” by Bryan Adams, and the two hold each other close and dance with a spotlight solely on them. Carmen is too focused on her lovers’ eyes to notice a steel cage descending around them, and Henrique Fernandez would knock his own daughter, Candice Ava, out with a haymaker. The recap takes a horrifying turn thereafter, as DDD and Henrique unleash a gruesome, grotesque assault on Carmen while a screaming, hysterical Cameron and Consuela Ava are physically blocked from intervening by security. The scene ends with Henrique dancing over a bloody and battered Carmen Ava, while DDD smears Carmen’s blood all over his white tuxedo. His final words ring loudest: “WHEN THE DEVIL TELLS YOU HE’S THE FUCKING DEVIL, BELIEVE HIM.” )

( Dynasty Intro video plays, featuring the song “Revolution” by The Score. )

( Camera opens up to the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, where the roaring audience is giving off a louder opening ovation than seen in recent memory. )

( Screen Bar: SOLD OUT. )

Stew-O: What a fitting environment for the final Dynasty of 2018! We are live from the SaskTel Centre up in the great white north, with a record attendance of 16,875 members of the EAW Universe PACKED into this venue! Stew-O here along with my broadcast colleague Talib Bari, as we are one week away from the most historic Marquee Event in EAW history! ROAD TO REDEMPTION 12! But that is next weekend Bari, how about the ENERGY of this place tonight?!

Talib Bari: Sun is down, freezing cold, that’s how you already know winter’s here! But these people are RED HOT! I can barely even hear myself Stew!

Stew: The ratings of Friday Night Dynasty are through the roof as of late, and the engagement from this audience is feedback live and in living colour that this brand is riding such an incredible wave of momentum!

Talib: People are more excited about Friday Night Dynasty than they have been in over three years, and just the glimpse I caught backstage a little bit ago, you can tell this ENTIRE roster has a fire lit underneath them! We’re going to see an incredible night of action, there’s still a whole lot to settle before we hit RTR, and —

“ILLEST MUTHAFUCKA ALIVE!!!!”

( “Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Jay Z and Kanye West hits. The crowd unleashes hell in the form of boos, and somehow the boos become louder as it is Mr. DEDEDE who strolls out to the stage with Henrique Fernandez by his side. )

Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome, the CHAIRMAN OF ELITE ANSWERS WRESTLING, MR. DEDEDE!

Stew: Here we go…

Talib: Talk about a complete change in vibe huh?

Stew: It’s tough to even look at this man without getting nauseous. The arrogance on display after what he did last week is just… I mean, how do you even find the words? These guys are walking out here like they own the place and everybody in it, just a week removed from probably the most heinous thing I have witnessed in my 10 years of being an EAW broadcast journalist.

Talib: This crowd definitely agrees with you there Stew. Let’s see what’s on the Chairman’s mind.

( “Illest Muthafucka Alive” dies down and DDD just stands there in the ring uncaring towards the feelings for anyone in the crowd. )

Mr. DEDEDE: Cameron Ella Ava has been hiding something from you people for a long, long time…

( “ULTRANumb” by Blue Stahli plays, and Cameron Ella Ava walks out to a thunderous ovation dressed in street attire. She is wearing no makeup, her hair isn’t done, and she has an unkempt look about her, as though she were dead inside. Cameron walks down the aisle and into the ring, while DDD and Henrique talk to each other about what they should do. Cam’s music eventually dies down, and she picks up a microphone from the apron before facing DDD and her father, Henrique. )

DDD: That was fast. How nice of you to join us Cammy, I was just here to let everybody in on your little secret.

Cameron Ella Ava: DDD, I hope you understand that you’ve won.

DDD: Oh really? (turns to Henrique) you hear that papi? She says I’ve won? (turns back to Cam) And whatever do you mean by that?

Cameron: You know exactly what I mean, DDD. You accomplished what you’ve set out to do. Your entire goal for these last few months have been to kill my passion for EAW, kill my passion for this business. Congratulations, you’ve done that. You took a lot from me this year, you took away people that I cared about, opportunities that I fought for, and now you’ve taken away the one thing that has kept me going in EAW for nearly a decade, my passion.

DDD: (laughs to himself) I took away your passion huh? You know it’s interesting how God giveth, and God also taketh away…. kind of like what he did with your unborn baby?

( The crowd collectively shuts up. Cameron takes a deep breath, and closes her eyes. DDD turns to a cackling Henrique. )

Talib: Wait a second, what?

DDD: Ooooo struck a nerve didn’t I papi? (back to Cam) You talk about your near decade long history here in EAW, and how much passion you’ve had, and you sure as hell inspired a lot of people in your tenure here in EAW haven’t you? So how do you explain the fact that all this time you have been hiding a secret from all of these people you fight for? Let me make this clear again just in case they didn’t hear me in the back: You are hiding a child, and it’s a dead one.

( You can hear a pin drop. People are too disgusted to even say anything. )

DDD: What’s wrong bitch cat got your tongue? Everybody and their mother is saying last week was some miscarriage of justice, well at least I’m not miscarrying children am I Cam? I mean after all, take a look at this?

( DDD motions to the titantron, and we see an early ultrasound picture of a child in the womb. Cameron takes on glance over her shoulders at the footage, and then she tilts her head up and closes her eyes yet again. )

Stew: Wow.

DDD: To think that was supposed to be your bundle of joy. To think you were supposed to bring life into this world, to think you were supposed to multiply and actually do what you were put on this earth to do which is be barefoot and pregnant. You were supposed to be a mother Cam, but you couldn’t even fucking do that right apparently. 😀

Do you know how hard it was for me to hold in my laughter when Carmen told me your deep, dark little secret? I can only imagine what’s going on in your dense ass little head Cam, maybe you’re starting to realize that your bitch goblina for a mother deserved every second of that ass whooping she got, maybe you’re finally starting to realize what it’s like to have to deal with the incompetence of an Ava. So now I’ve apparently “killed your passion”, what the fuck does that even mean anyways Cameron huh? What is that supposed to mean, are you going to finally show your true colors and quit like you’ve probably wanted to for the last 7 months now? Are you going to finally give me what I want and walk the fuck away? Go ahead, fill in the blanks for me Cam, I’m dying to know.

Cameron: (voice breaking) You know what, you have done everything you could to humiliate me, make me feel worthless, make me feel like I don’t belong. You have successfully made my life a living hell, and you throwing the worst thing that has ever happened to me right in my face doesn’t even surprise me anymore DDD. At this point I’m tired. I’m just so fucking tired of all of this DDD, it’s not worth it anymore. So if you truly want me gone, if that’s what you want so badly, then that’s what I’ll do. I’ll quit EAW and I’ll never come back.

( The crowd immediately pleads for her not to do it. )

Cameron: But do you know what DDD? If I’m going to do what you’ve wanted me to do for all of this time, I’m going to at least have to give you one condition. If you really want me to quit so bad, then at least make sure that I have no other option. Make sure that there’s no possible way that I could ever show my face in an EAW ring again, make sure that if I quit I have not even an inkling of pride left in me to show up here ever again. Just give me one more match with you, one more chance for me to get my hands on you for everything you’ve done to me, and give yourself one more chance to put me down like you claim you’d like to…. at Road to Redemption give yourself that opportunity to put me away, in an I Quit match.

( The crowd reacts to that proposition. )

Cameron: And if you can physically push me to yelling the words “I Quit”, you have my word, you will never see me here on Dynasty ever again.

( Huge mixed reaction. )

DDD: :notbad: Not like either of us have anything better to do. Yeah, I like it. That sounds fine with me. Your father and I were actually just talking about what we did to your mother last week Cam, and we both felt like in hindsight we were entirely too soft on her. There’s still a lot more we could have done to punish her, but in the back of my mind I had a feeling this opportunity would come. I can tell just by looking at you that you’re just some mangy, withered old tired mutt ready to be put out of its misery. You’re exhausted beyond your wits-end, and it would be inhumane of me not to put your lights out permanently….so as Henrique as my witness….Road to Redemption will be much more than the final nail in the coffin, it will be the mercy killing you have needed for a long fucking while now. Now security, get her out of here.

( “ULTRANumb” comes back on and members of the security personnel enter the ring to escort Cameron Ella Ava out of there. Cameron has a dead look in her eyes, and she complies without any struggle while DDD waves her goodbye. )

Stew: If there is a God, Cameron Ella Ava will make DEDEDE pay in spades for everything he has done to that woman.

Talib: We will get that opportunity to see if it comes to pass, because at Road to Redemption 12 it’s official! Cameron Ella Ava will meet Mr. DEDEDE for the final time in an ‘I Quit’ match, where if Cameron loses, she will voluntarily leave Elite Answers Wrestling for good! I think I’m on your side and most people’s side Stew, even if you manage to look past all of the disgusting crap DDD has done as of late, the last thing any of us want is to lose a legend like Cameron!

Stew: It will be a match that promises to be both climactic as well as consequential —

( “Revolution” by The Score plays in the background, and a graphic appears on the screen promoting The Score (Ryan Wilson, Shaker Jones and Jason McKormick) vs Monster and The Devil w/ Soothsayer Hamasa. )

Talib: But another climactic bout that we can expect is The Score who will meet Monster and The Devil, with both teams prepared to let it all hang out!

Stew: This is a rivalry that has been brewing for weeks and weeks, and both sides are prepared to go to WAR here in the SaskTel Centre, that’s our main event of the evening —

( We see a shot backstage of a stoic Devan Dubian walking through the hallway corridor with Lucas Johnson and Albert Hitchman flanking him from both sides, barraging him with suggestions for strategy in the upcoming match. )

Stew: But up next we’ve got action coming your way featuring four members of the Answers World Championship Extreme Elimination Chamber match at Road to Redemption 12! Devan Dubian teams with Lucas Johnson to take on Erebus Jennings and Hades the Hellraiser! That’s on its way as Dynasty returns in just 90 seconds!

( COMMERCIAL BREAK — featuring an ad for the upcoming Marquee Event, ROAD TO REDEMPTION 12! LIVE from Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Quebec, Canada! )

( Open back to the SaskTel Centre, where we get a view of the outside of the venue with promotional advertisements for Dynasty which is sold out this evening. The show then returns into the arena, where Stephie Love is standing in the middle of the ring wearing a form fitting stretch mini dress and black heels. )

(“The Sky Is A Neighborhood” by Foo Fighters begins to play as the crowd gives a mixed reaction. Devan Dubian emerges onto the stage as he then makes his way to the ring.)

Stephie Love: The following contest is a tag team match. Introducing first, from Leicester, England, United Kingdom, weighing 230 pounds… DEVANNNN DUBBIANNNN!

(“Young and Bitter” by Hot Tag Media begins to play as the crowd begins to boo. Lucas Johnson emerges onto the stage as he then makes his way to the ring to join his partner.)

Stephie Love: And his partner, from Atlanta, Georgia, weighing 205 pounds…. LUCAAASSS JOHNSOONNNN!

(Indestructible by Disturbed then begins to play as the crowd gives a positive reaction. The lights dim as Erebus Jennings walks onto the stage and down to the ring with the PURE Championship over his shoulder.)

Stephie Love: And their opponents, weighing 240 pounds…. THE PURE CHAMPION… EREEBUSSS JENNINGGGSS!

(“Wanted Man” by Rev Theory begins to play as the crowd continues to cheer. Hades the Hellraiser emerges onto the stage as he makes his way to the ring.)

Stephie Love: And his partner, Devil Town, North Carolina, weighing 325 pounds… HAADDESS THE HELLL RAIISSERRRR!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: Here we go with tag team action. Hades and Devan Dubian seem to be the two men starting things off for their team. Hades makes the first move as he catch Devan with a quick right hand. Devan throws one of his own but Hades blocks it and strikes with a quick shot to the jaw. He throws one more but Dubian ducks! He slides in behind Hades… DROP KICK! The drop kick sends Hades stumbling into the corner! Hades regains himself as he turns around to focus in on Devan who catches him with a flurry of rights and lefts! Hades falls backwards once more as Dubian now tries to throw him into the opposite corner of the ring!

Talib: HADES QUICKLY COUNTERS AND THROWS DUBIAN INTO THE CORNER INSTEAD! HE CHARGES AND HITS A RUNNING CLOTHESLINE ONTO DUBIAN! He takes a few steps back and charges again! THIS TIME DUBIAN GETS A BOOT UP AS A COUNTERMEASURE TO HADES! Hades falls back as Dubian comes in and connects with a european uppercut! HADES INSTANTLY STRIKES BACK! HE NOW RUNS OFF THE ROPES AT DUBIAN AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH A FLYING LARIAT! Dubian rolls over as Hades now begins to get back up! LUCAS REACHES OUT AND MAKES THE TAG SO HE CAN ENTER THIS MATCH FOR THE FIRST TIME!

Stew: Lucas enters this match and he takes the opportunity to charge at Hades! Hades swings and misses as Lucas ducks! Lucas bounces off the ropes and delivers a running drop kick to the legs of Hades! Hades falls down and catches himself on a knee! LUCAS NOW CHARGES AT HADES AND HITS HIM WITH A SHINING WIZARD! WHAT A SHOT BY LUCAS JOHNSON AS HE MAKES THE COVER!

ONEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO!

Talib: HADES KICKS OUT! Lucas gets back up and now goes to the legs of Hades! He tries to spin him over to apply a Boston Crab! BUT HADES KICKS HIM AWAY! HADES NOW GETS TO A KNEE AS HE RECOVERS AND LUCAS GOES FOR ANOTHER SHINING WIZARD! NO GOOD AS HADES MANAGES TO SIDE STEP THE ATTEMPT! LUCAS IS UP AND HADES CATCHES HIM BY THE THROAT! A CHOKESLAM MAY BE IN THE FUTURE FOR LUCAS! BUT HE KICKS HADES IN THE LEGS AND NOW THROWS A FEW SHOTS TO HIS FACE TO BREAK FREE!

Stew: Hades backs as Lucas comes at Hades once more! FEEL THE PAIN! HE GOES FOR THE RKO! BUT HADES PUSHES HIM AWAY! LUCAS TURNS AROUND TO FACE HADES ONCE MORE AND HE IS MET WITH A HUGE BIG BOOT BY HADES! HADES ALMOST TAKES LUCAS’ HEAD OFF HIS SHOULDERS! Hades now goes to his corner and tags in his partner, Erebus! Erebus enters the ring as Lucas was almost knocked out! Erebus lifts up Lucas to his feet and immediately pulls him in… FISHERMAN SUPLEX! IT HITS AS EREBUS BRIDGES IT INTO A PIN!

ONEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Talib: LUCAS KICKS OUT! He isn’t finished yet! Erebus lifts up Lucas once more and grabs him… INVERTED ATOMIC DROP! LUCAS STUMBLES BUT HE QUICKLY RESPONDS WITH A HEADBUTT TO CATCH EREBUS OFF GUARD! HE NOW GRABS HIM AND EXECUTES A BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX! EREBUS GOES DOWN! Erebus is quick to get up… BUT LUCAS TAKES HIM DOWN AGAIN WITH A BIG CLOTHESLINE! HE NOW QUICKLY CLIMBS TO THE TOP ROPE! HE STANDS ON TOP AND LEAPS… FROG SPLASH! IT CONNECTS AS HE COVERS EREBUS!

ONEEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Stew: A KICK OUT! A fantastic move by Lucas Johnson but it isn’t enough! He stands back as Erebus pulls himself up… HE GRABS HIM FROM BEHIND! GERMAN SUPLEX! BUT EREBUS RESPONDS WITH A SERIES OF ELBOWS! LUCAS FALLS BACK AND NOW EREBUS SLIDES BEHIND HIM… AND HITS A GERMAN SUPLEX OF HIS OWN! Lucas is slow to recover as he begins to get up… AND EREBUS GRABS HIM AND CONNECTS WITH A SWINGING NECK BREAKER! EREBUS GIVING LUCAS JOHNSON NO ROOM FOR COMFORT!

Talib: Erebus now climbs to the top rope just as Lucas did just a minute ago! HE STANDS AS HE ALLOWS LUCAS TO GET TO HIS FEET… HE LEAPS FOR A FLYING CLOTHESLINE! BUT LUCAS SIDE STEPS IT! EREBUS MISSES AND LUCAS NOW COMES AT HIM EREBUS GETS TO HIS FEET! HE PLANTS HIM WITH A STANDARD DDT! LUCAS NOW TAKES HIS OPPORTUNITY TO TAG IN DEVAN DUBIAN!

Stew: Dubian enters this match for the second time! He approaches Erebus as he pulls him towards the ropes and pushes him on to the apron! HE PULLS HIM THROUGH AND HAS HIM! ROPE HUNG DDT CONNECTS! DEVAN DUBIAN PLANTS EREBUS! He now pulls Erebus up as he prepares him for a suplex! BUT EREBUS CATCHES HIM WITH AN FOREARM SMASH! HE NOW KNEES DUBIAN IN THE GUT! EREBUS CHARGES BACK AT DUBIAN BUT HE’S CAUGHT BY DUBIAN WHO EXECUTES A QUICK SCOOP SLAM TO COUNTER!

Talib: Devan now goes for a standing leaping elbow drop! EREBUS ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY! Dubian grabs his elbow in pain as he stands up! EREBUS IS UP AND DROPS HIM WITH A DISCUS CLOTHESLINE!

HADES NOW GRABS LUCAS AND CLOTHESLINES HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE!

Talib: EREBUS NOW TURNS HIS ATTENTION TO DEVAN DUBIAN! BLEEDING EDGE! DUBIAN TRIES TO CATCH EREBUS AS HE WAS DISTRACTED… BUT EREBUS COUNTERS! HE EXPECTED IT AND HE PUSHES DUBIAN OFF BUT GRABS HIM IN THE PROCESS… PITCH BLACK! WHAT A COUNTER BY EREBUS! HE MAKES THE COVER!

ONEEEE! TWOOOOOOOOOOO! THREEEEEEEE!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(Indestructible by Disturbed begins to play as the crowd erupts. Erebus Jennings and Hades begin to celebrate in the ring as Dubian and Lucas Johnson recover at ringside.)

Stephie Love: HERE ARE YOU WINNERS… EREEEBUSSSS JENNINGGS AND HADDESS THE HELLRAISSERRRRR!

Stew: WHAT A HUGE WIN! Erebus and Hades are successful here in this tag team match as they defeat two men who they will face in the Extreme Elimination Chamber at Road to Redemption!

Talib: They managed to be allies here tonight and they come out with a victory! WAIT! WHO’S THAT COMING DOWN THE RAMP… IT’S APOCALYPSE! WHAT’S HE DOING?! HE GRABS LUCAS JOHNSON WHO WAS AT RINGSIDE! HE BLOCKS A PUNCH BY LUCAS AND LAUNCHES HIM INTO THE STEEL STEPS! MY GOD! HE NOW GOES FOR DEVAN DUBIAN! HE TAKES HIM OUT WITH A RUNNING BIG BOOT!

( “Sound of Silence” by Necroblaspheme plays, and APOCALYPSE shows off to the audience letting out a roar. )

Stew: WHAT HAVE WE JUST WITNESSED?!

Talib: APOCALYPSE HAS JUST TAKEN OUT FOUR OF HIS OPPONENTS AT ROAD TO REDEMPTION! What a display of dominance he has just put on here tonight!

Stew: If we see this in the Extreme Elimination Chamber, if this man ends up being the 5th or 6th entrant in the Extreme Elimination Chamber, what in God’s name is stopping this man from becoming the next Answers World Champion?!

Talib: NOTHING Stew, absolutely nothing! These individuals had better make a pact or form some kind of strategy, because a divided chamber will be ripe for the pickings for this gargantuan savage!

( “Sound of Silence” can still be heard, but the camera transitions backstage to the interview area where Theron Nikolas is standing in front of the flat screen 4K monitor holding the Answers World Championship over his shoulder and dressed in a 1% shirt. He looks on attentively, laser focused on the carnage caused by his Extreme Elimination Chamber-mates. )

( JUST THEN: Kathy Kush approaches Theron with a microphone to get a word. )

Kathy Kush: Theron, while you’re still here can I get a live reaction of what just went down out there in the ring between your challengers in the Extreme Elimination Chamber?

Theron Nikolas: (to himself) I really have to face that big son of a Bitch…

Kathy: Theron?

( Theron snaps out of it. )

Theron: Oh, uh, Kathy…what do you want again?

Kathy: I just wanted your thoughts on the rampage APOCALYPSE just went on? It seems like of all four of the Extreme Elimination Chamber matches, you will have the most difficult field of competition to deal with come Road to Redemption. What’s your mindset as we’re just 8 days away from the big event?

Theron: Tch. Champ’s got this Kathy, I have all five of these peons completely scouted from head to toe. The way I see it, the Extreme Elimination Chamber isn’t even going to be my toughest challenge of that evening. (diverting his attention off camera) But hey nice chatting with you and all Kathy but the king’s got fellow royalty to greet.

( Theron walks away from Kathy very quickly leaving her behind, and the camera follows Theron as he walks over to a different hallway where Jack Ripley is standing by. The two greet each other with a hi-five. )

Theron: There you are! Where the hell’ve you been?

Jack Ripley: Sorry I was late, I was looking to get some council from other illustrious kings of EAW’s lore, you know, since I’m the one next in line for the throne. I tried to get advice from Liam Catterson but he’s too busy doing Game of Thrones reviews. I tried to get advice from Robbie V but he was still bitter over when I kicked him and his manservant lackey Brian Daniels around. Then I tried to give Eclipse Diemos a call but it kept redirecting me to the voicemail of some chick named ‘Ciri Sky’.

Theron: God, EAW has had so many terrible KOE’s hasn’t it. Good thing we were able to break the dry spell with my reign. Anyways mate I figured you and I would go over some proper ‘kingly etiquette’ before you clean through that fatal 4 way at RTR and coast through the KOE finals the same way I did one year ago.

???: Sounds like a plan!

( Theron and Ripley roll their eyes, and Dynasty General Manager Starr Stan walks into frame. )

Starr Stan: But before you guys do that I do need to let you in on a new development that is definitely going to raise the stakes regarding this fatal four way you’re scheduled to compete in at Road to Redemption. Just enough to add incentive, if you will.

Jack: Neato, I’m all for incentive. What are you gonna do add a $1 million bonus on the purse for this match?

Starr: Sorry, I’m not in any hurry to max out the salary cap here on Dynasty just yet. However the payday off of the KOE crown should more than suffice. Actually the incentive comes with the conditions for what will happen should you lose at Road to Redemption, and fail to represent Dynasty in the King of Elite finals.

Jack: OK. So what the hell happens?

Starr: You’re fired.

( The crowd ERUPTS with applause, and Starr smiles and walks away leaving behind an outraged Theron and Ripley. )

Theron: Wait a minute excuse me?!

Jack: What the fuck are you talking about?! Get back here!

( Theron and Jack both call after Starr, and they follow him off screen to demand an explanation for this decision. )

( COMMERCIAL BREAK — including an advertisement hyping up the EAW Awards show, LIVE from The Palace on December 29th! Airing prime time on NBC! )

( Dynasty returns to the SaskTel Centre, and the camera cuts to Stephie Love in the ring. )

Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!!!

( “Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio hits to cheers from the crowd. )

Stephie Love: Introducing first from Greenwich, Connecticut weighing in at 220 pounds he is “RADD” THADD BLAZZZZZZZZZZZZEVICH!!!

( Thadd Blazevich makes his way to the ring slapping the hands of fans on his way down the ramp. )

Talib: I love you Thadd <3

Stew: He is just a great guy, he really won me over after his charming first sighting last week, but I still want to see the young man prove himself in an actual match up. After all you know our motto Talib —

Talib: We fight on Friday nights!

Stew: Exactly.

( “DUST” by Tremonti hits! Kevin Hunter drives down to the ring on a motorcycle nearly crashing into cameramen around ringside. )

Stephie Love: And his opponent from Brooklyn, New York weighing in at 235 pounds… “THE DEVIL INCARNATE” KEVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVIN HUNTER!!!

Stew: The former Openweight Champ has arrived! This is going to be an intense match for sure. I somehow got a chance to reason with Kevin Hunter and convince him to actually talk to me earlier today, and according to him last week Thadd Blazevich, in Kevin’s words, ‘disrespected’ him by showing up uninvited during “his” time block of the show.

Talib: In Kevin Hunter’s mind we are merely guests in Kevin Hunter’s world, but Thadd-dad proved he would not be slapped around like some dumb , stupid kid! He put up a fight for himself and he forced Kevin Hunter to acknowledge him as a man! We’ll see if that was the right thing to do, or if he just pissed Kevin off and made a target out of himself. Probably the latter.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Talib: We are underway as Kevin Hunter immediately charges in at Thadd Blazevich with a karate chop but Thadd moves out the way! Thadd ducking beneath the arm as he grabs Kevin’s arm and whips him across the ring! Dropkick! No! Kevin held onto the ropes and Thadd landed on his back missing with that Dropkick! Kevin charges in and kicks the legs out from under Thadd taking him down! Thadd keels over in pain holding onto his legs as Kevin Hunter smiles watching his opponent suffer. The referee checks on Thadd who may have injured his leg but he refuses to give up this early in the match! Thadd slowly returns back up to his feet but is lifted up over the shoulders of Kevin Hunter… Powerbomb connects!!! The cover!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Stew: The kickout by Thadd Blazevich! Kevin Hunter refuses to relent however as he pulls Thadd up by the arm and takes him into the corner with an Arm Flip. And now the punches rain down upon him as he goes in on his opponent in the corner! But Thadd grabs onto the leg of Kevin trying to take him down! But to no avail! Kevin lifts Thadd up once more and drops him with a devastating Powerbomb! No cover this time as Kevin again pulls Thadd up and throws him down with a Body Slam followed up by an Elbow Drop! No wait! Thadd moved out of the way! Both men back up as Thadd drops Kevin with a Running Clothesline! Kevin pulls himself up stumbling on the corner but Thadd charges in with another Running Clothesline! This time the momentum from the clothesline sent both men flying outside the ring flipping over the top rope!!!

Talib: Both men now laid out on the outside of the ring as the referee begins to count but it looks like they are moving a bit! Both men make it back into the ring but Thadd grabs onto Kevin and mounts him choking the life out of him with both hands! The referee is forced to intervene pulling Thadd off of Kevin as he regains his breath. Once the referee has determined he is okay Kevin returns to action locking up with Thadd in the middle of the ring. But Kevin shoves Thadd hard into the corner! A hard right hand! No! Thadd ducks beneath grabbing Kevin from behind and locking him into a headlock! And he drops him with a Reverse DDT! Kevin back up… But Thadd takes him down with a leaping Dropkick! Kevin up again as Thadd grabs his neck… Snap DDT connects!!! The cover!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Stew: Kickout! Both men up… No wait Kevin Hunter just kicked Thadd hard in the head as he was getting up! Quick cover by Thadd!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!!

Talib Bari: Kevin mockingly kicks at the head of Thadd and shoves his face down onto the mat! He is enjoying playing with his opponent here tonight! Kevin pulls Thadd up as he grabs him around the waist and lifts him up over his head and behind him locking the hold in. Gory Special has been applied… and Gory Special into a Flatliner!!! No! Thadd escaped from the hold before he was slammed down and landed on his feet! Thadd lighting Kevin up with shots to the face sending him back against the ropes!!! Thadd whips Kevin across the ring… No reversal! Thadd sent across the ring… but he comes flying back with a Flying Crossbody taking Kevin down! Kevin back up as Thadd grabs him and slams him down hard on the mat before climbing to the top rope! Kevin staggers back to his feet… Thadd comes off the top with a Flying Axe Handle! It connects! Thadd lands on his feet as he is on fire right now!

Stew: Thadd rallying the crowd behind him as Kevin Hunter returns to his feet… Superkick from Thadd connects!! Kevin bounces off the ropes and falls back into the arms of Thadd… THE BROTATO CHIP CONNECTS!!! THE COVER!!!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEE!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stephie Love: Here is your winner… “RADD” THADDDDDDDDDD BLAZZZZZZZZZZZZZEVICH!!!

(“Gangsta’s Paradise” by Coolio hits as the crowd celebrates and Thadd Blazevich is shown having his hand raised by the referee.)

Talib: He did it! Big win by Thadd Blazevich here tonight!!!

Stew: Absolutely Talib! Congrats to Thadd! A great effort on Kevin Hunter’s part as well. He has won titles here before so I am sure he will bounce back!

(The camera cuts to a commercial for the EAW Intergender Tag Team Tournament: The Lost Chapters.)

( Dynasty returns to the arena, where “Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Jay Z and Kanye West is playing on the sound system, and Mr. DEDEDE is in the ring warming up while dressed to compete. )

( DING! DING! DING! )

Stephie Love: The following singles match is scheduled for ONE FALL!!! Introducing first, already in the ring, residing in The Ryan Adams Estate of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, weighing in tonight at 226 POUNDS.. MMMISSTEEEEEEEEERRR DEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEE!!!

Stew: Just a week removed from what we now understand will be an “I QUIT” match against Cameron Ella Ava, Mr. DEDEDE has been placed in this exhibition contest as part of a Dynasty-Empire exchange which is the brainchild of Fox Executive, Stephon Hunte.

Talib: DDD’s lack of respect for women is well documented, however we aren’t exactly seeing that look in his eyes, that “Gawdzilla” vibe if you will. He seems to be a lot more in control of himself, which will be important for him I guess considering his opponent.

( “Higher” by The Score plays over the sound system and Kassidy Heart strolls out to the stage with Ahren Fournier standing by her side. )

Stephie Love: His opponent, accompanied by Ahren Fournier, residing in San Diego, California, KASSSIIDYYYYYYYY HHEEEEAAAAAAAAARTT!!!

Stew: I got a chance to speak with Kassidy earlier in the day and I have got to tell you, it will be an honor to get the opportunity to call her matches in the future should she decide to make a permanent landing on this brand. This young lady has “it” in my mind, and while it is no question that tonight is the biggest match of her career, Kassidy has put everything into preparing for this uphill battle.

Talib: What makes Kassidy such a standout — other than her skill beyond her years — is the way she moves with such drive and such purpose. You are talking about one of the most dedicated Elitists on the roster, she is loyal to her allies and is a student of the game. That will definitely take her far.

( DING! DING! DING! )

Stew: Kassidy has her game face on and she’s inching towards DDD. DDD has a smile on her face, not sure if it’s out of respect or just condescending amusement, but knowing this man it’s probably the latter. DDD brushes the hair back from his face and the two lock up in a collar & elbow grapple, DDD with the height, weight and strength advantage although he did cut some weight since his last appearance on Dynasty. Standing switch from Kassidy causes DDD to sink to his knees, prompting Kass to apply a chinlock. DDD shoots out of it and snatches Kassidy into a snug headlock as well…prompting some pretty harsh boos from the crowd.

Talib: That’s because DDD has formed this new habit as of late where he – uh – ‘rests his laurels’ on those headlock. Don’t be surprised if this hold alone lasts for half of the damn match………. Nope! Spoke too soon, Kassidy managed to slip out of it somehow and trips DDD to the mat with an achilles hook MAYBE LOOKING FOR THE BRAZILIAN HEEL HOOK ALREADY??? But DDD crawls desperately away from Kass prompting Kass to tug him by his ankle with all she’s got and reel him in for a KASSPLODER PLEX!!! DDD LANDS ON HIS FEET FOLLOWING THE GERMAN RELEASE ATTEMPT! KASS TURNS AROUND, DDD RUSHES AT HER WITH THE SPEAR! KASS COMPLETELY FROZE, BUT DDD COMBAT ROLLS PAST HER AND IS BACK UP TO HIS FEET! And a taunting DDD does another combat roll-through to one knee, holding out his arms and showing off for 1/2 of the Jaded Hearts.

Stew: DDD employing mind games, and Kassidy can only shake her head at him for doing so. She is taking this seriously, but DDD gave up the opportunity to put her away despite Kassidy having her guard down, and you just know that’s going to be in the back of Kassidy’s mind for the rest of this match. Kassidy charges at DDD, but DDD does a combat roll evasion again! He sprints up to his feet in ungodly speed and is already rebounding off the ropes clear across the ring — DROPKICK BY KASSIDY!!! BUT DDD CARTWHEELS OUT OF IT!!! And starts doing jumping jacks!

Talib: Kassidy can’t help but crack a smile after that one, but she’s telling him straight up she isn’t going to fall for his games. That’s the thing about DDD, you never know what you’re going to get from him. You could come in expecting a war and he decides to troll the hell out of you. DDD and Kassidy circle the ring again, DDD laughing to himself while Kassidy straightens up her face — AND KASSIDY JABS HIM ACROSS THE EYE WITH HER THUMB!!! DDD COMPLETELY CAUGHT OFF GUARD BY THAT, AND KASSIDY HANGS OFF OF THE TALLER OPPONENT’S NECK WITH A HEADLOCK WHILE SENDING HAMMERFISTS INTO THE TEMPLE! And she takes DDD over with a headlock takedown! Kass sprints to her feet, jumping fistdrop straight into the jaw! Now she rushes to the nearest set of ropes, and rebounds off of them for a jumping knee drop to the bridge of the nose! Lateral press!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWW-

Talib: DDD shoves Kassidy off of her, and he actually looks really pissed off about that eye poke! Kass has got DDD at the corner, and she LIGHTS his chest up with a flurry of knife edge chops! Much to the delight of Ahren at ringside! After the fifth chop DDD fires back with a right to the face! He goes for another but Kass fires back with a European uppercut! DDD leaned over the turnbuckle and Kassidy mounts him at the corner, standing on the middle turnbuckle, and HAMMERS DOWN ELBOWS OVER AND OVER TO THE TOP OF THE SKULL! She’s throwing down elbows like a lumberjack throwing down an ax, split in the middle of the Gawd’s noggin, but DDD takes Kassidy out of the corner with an ELECTRIC CHAIR DROP!!!

Stew: KASSIDY COUNTERS WITH A VICTORY ROLL! THERE’S THE PIN!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO-

Stew: DDD frantically kicks out! The two recover and sprint towards each other instantly, but this time DDD cuts past her and brings her to her shoulders with a school boy roll up!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONEEEE!!! TWWWWWWWWWWWW-

Stew: Kick out by Kassidy. She’s back up to both two and DDD baseball slides between her legs for a double handed roll up, but Kass snatches the left arm and torques it, rolling DDD onto her back and countering with an arm-trap camel clutch, pressing DDD’s arm to his own back using her knee and rearing at his head with both hands! DDD reaching back with the free arm and is trying to grab any part of Kassidy that he can! But you can see the pain all over his face, that is NOT a comfortable position to be in and if Kassidy keeps that in she might bring DDD to his limit!

Talib: DDD won’t allow it, he reaches back and snatches the boot, but Kassidy switches from a camel clutch to a pull of the hair with one hand and BATTERING FOREARMS INTO THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH THE OTHER ARM! Even the referee has to intervene there! Kassidy snatches the leg again maybe for another submission hold?! SHE HAS THE ANKLE LOCK APPLIED! But The Gawd intelligently keeps as much leverage off the mat as he can, “craning” his body and rolls through it to send Kassidy THROUGH THE ROPES TO THE OUTSIDE! Kassidy hits the ring side floor with a bit of a rough landing, but it’s unbelievable how quickly she’s recovering, she’s fighting to her feet with haste! After a brief moment DDD’s up and trying to sprint over to the far ropes to gather momentum for his patented “Vintage DEDEDE” somersault hilo, but Kassidy has already rushed back into the ring and BAM!!! SHE CLOCKS HIM ACROSS THE HEAD WITH A BICYCLE KNEE!!! DDD STAGGERED, A BICYCLE KICK TO THE DOUBLED OVER DDD!!! DDD drops to his back, and by the time he instinctively sits back up KASSIDY IS ALREADY REBOUNDED OFF THE ROPES FOR A SLIDING FOREARM TO THE FACE! BUT DDD LEANS BACK TO EVADE IT AND KIPS RIGHT BACK UP! HE GOADS KASSIDY INTO THE CORNER, KASSIDY CHARGES AT HIM WITH A RUNNING CORNER SPLASH!!! NOBODY HOME, SHE COLLIDES FACE FIRST INTO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE PAD, AND SWEET JESUS DDD IS ALREADY ACROSS THE RING AT THE OTHER TURNBUCKLE, AND FIRES BACK WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS!!! BANG!!! RAPTURE!!!!!!! MOTHER OF GOD HE JUST TOOK KASSIDY’S HEAD OFF WITH THE HELLUVA KICK!!!

Stew: How in the HELL did DDD cover so much ground in so little time?!

Talib: You just can’t teach that Stew! Now the panting EAW Chairman drags Kassidy away from the ropes and hooks both legs!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Talib: KASSIDY HEART WITH THE KICK OUT. Seriously Stew, I don’t believe what I just saw.

Stew: The ability to plan 3 or 4 steps ahead within, seemingly, the blink of an eye is what separates this man from any other in EAW history. Like you said Bari, it’s something you just cannot teach, as Kassidy is following the voice of her Magnum Opus cohort Ahren Fournier and drags herself out of the ring. Ahren is showing a shocking amount of concern considering how self-absorbed he usually is, as he’s coaching her a little bit against a man who he is no stranger to. BUT LOOK OUT!!!! DDD HAS ALREADY REGAINED HIS BREATH AND IS SPRINTING ACROSS THE RING, LOOKING TO CLEAR OVER THE TURNBUCKLE POST FOR THE “VINTAGE” DEDEDE!!!!!! BUT AHREN PULLS KASSIDY OUT OF THE WAY!!!!!

Talib: DDD doesn’t fully rotate! Instead he lands on the steel steps on the opposite side of the turnbuckle post! Now he drops down to ringside, walks over to a recovering Kassidy, and DDD and Ahren get into a bit of a verbal piss racing contest!

( The referee slides out of the ring and separates DDD and Ahren, who are nose to nose engaged in a heated argument. Meanwhile Kassidy is crawling back into the ring. )

Stew: DDD immediately disengages from the debate with Ahren and drags Kassidy off of the apron by her boot, slings her over his shoulder and DRIVES HER SPINE FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! Now he takes her by the nape of the neck and slings her under the ropes, back into the ring before slowly stalking her, climbing up the apron and stepping in the ring…. DDD closes in on Kassidy, but Kass fires back with a shoot kick to the right knee! Another shoot kick stuns DDD! And a cross right against the nose! DDD bent over a little bit, and Kass goes for a REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE! DDD avoids that and lifts her up for a scoop slam! Well positioned in the middle of the ropes, and DDD — I keep using this word — but sprints over to the ropes and ricochets right off them for a CORKSCREW ELBOW DROP straight into the chest! And lays right over her chest.

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Talib: Kassidy throws the shoulder up. (While DDD applies a grounded headlock.) “Sprint” is an appropriate word in this match Stew, these two are delivering each attack with such speed and accuracy, it’s no wonder why they’re considered two of the top wrestlers on the planet. The speed DDD can still perform at when he’s motivated is just ridiculous. Kassidy right now is having to fight out of the grounded position. DDD is wrenching at it with about all he’s got, and the audience is definitely on Kassidy’s side here, clapping and stomping their feet at a similar pace in order to will her up to a standing base…. now DDD hoists her up again and holds her in his arms as though he were about to deliver a fallaway slam…. but Kass lands a couple of shots and escapes DDD’s grasp! DDD rushes at her for a wild right, but she counters with a nice armdrag! DDD hits the mat, recovers, goes after her again! Another armdrag! Kassidy stumbles over to DDD who’s recovering at the ropes and she sends him across the ring for an Irish whip — but DDD purposefully drops himself to his back, and delivers a lifting kick to the doubled over shoulder of Kassidy! Now he spins like a top on his back ready to kip up again, but Kassidy CATCHES ONE OF HIS LEGS!!! AND DELIVERS AN ANKLE DDT!!!!

Stew: NICE ONE! DDD yelps out in pain clutching his right ankle, and he’s staggering back up, but Kassidy meets him with an oncoming dropkick straight into the legs, cutting him back down! Kassidy trying her damndest to get back up as quickly as she can, and she meets DDD on all fours with an MMA-like shoot knee strike to the ribs! Another! Another! And she hoists him by the waist from behind…. DDD trying to reach behind to break apart the rear waistlock, but Kass counters with an atomic drop! And immediately follows up with a SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX!!!! THAT TOOK A LOT OUT OF KASSIDY, BUT IT SENT DDD LANDING RIGHT ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD AND HAD HIM FOLDED UP LIKE AN ACCORDION! Kassidy drags herself across the ring where DDD has rolled over to just off of the momentum of that suplex, and she finally covers him now.

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Talib: The referee waves it off, as DDD’s hand is wrapped around the bottom rope! Looks like it was more than just momentum that caused DDD to reach the positioning he did following that German. Kassidy drags DDD away from the ropes, but DDD is clinging to the middle rope for dear life, and it’s become a tug & pull of possession here — but AHREN PULLS DDD OUT OF THE RING ONTO THE APRON BY HIS BOOTS! He holds his hands up and backs away while prompting the ire of the referee, meanwhile DDD is wearily pulling himself up to a vertical base using the ropes….. BUT KASSIDY IS STANDING ON THE MIDDLE ROPES, OH MY GOD!!! THERE’S NO WAY!!! NO WAY!!!!

Stew: KASSIDY APPLIES A DRAGON SLEEPER FROM THE MIDDLE ROPES INSIDE THE ROPES….. AND DROPS DDD WITH AN ELEVATED ‘STARGAZING’!!!! DRAPING INVERTED DDT FROM THE ROPES, SENDING DDD CRASHING ONTO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD! I DON’T THINK I’VE EVER SEEN THAT EXECUTED IN EAW! AND NOW KASSIDY FOLLOWS THROUGH, STACKING HIM ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, WITH BOTH FEET PROPPED UP ON THE MIDDLE ROPES!

( Ahren diverts the referees attention away from the argument with him, over to Kassidy who has DDD stacked onto his shoulders. )

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THRRRRRR-

Stew: KICK OUT!!! I TRULY THOUGHT THAT WAS OVER FOR DDD BARI!

Talib: Come on now, don’t forget who we’re talking about Stew! You should NEVER count this man out until the bell is rung, but DAMN do I have to admit, I’m just blown away by what I’m seeing right now! Kassidy Heart is putting on the fight of her career, and she’s still going! She’s continuing those MMA-style thrusting knees into the shoulder blades, while applying a front facelock to boot! She’s literally gasping for air in exhaustion, but is pushing herself SO far to keep the offense going on a man who for all intents and purposes is the greatest in ring performer of all time! Kassidy gator rolls DDD away from the ropes — but DDD manages to find enough leverage to rush up to his feet despite Kassidy sprawled over him and send her FLYING FOR A BACK BODY DROP! Kassidy hits the floor, DDD’s down to a knee again, and Kassidy is recovering much slower, she’s exhausted, she’s overly exerting herself, her face is beet red Stew! Kassidy literally staggers over to DDD — OH NO!!!! DDD CATCHES HER!!! HE’S GOT HER HOOKED!!! GRAND SLAM!!!!!! DEVASTATING ROCK BOTTOM DRILLS KASSIDY HEART INTO THE CANVAS, AND KASSIDY WAS CAUGHT JUST AS OFF GUARD AS THE REST OF THIS CROWD BY THAT LEGENDARY MOVE!

Stew: But DDD is favoring his right leg! Kassidy has been on the offense of that leg for some of this match, and it’s impeding on his ability to effectively cover her! Mr. DEDEDE drags himself over Kassidy Heart, and finally hooks the leg after what was – in mid-match terms – an eternity!

Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Talib: WHAT???

Stew: KASSIDY!!! KICKS!!! OUT!!!!

Talib: My lord! My lord! DDD bangs his fist on the mat, gnashing his teeth and pulling his hair back out of frustration. He didn’t expect this thing to continue at any point past where it’s already gotten, by no means was this match to go on as long as it did or be as difficult as it has been, and you can tell by the look in his eyes that a raging inferno is festering inside him! The fun and games are over, and DDD drags himself over to the corner like a man possessed…. AND “METHUSELAH” HAS COME ALIVE HERE IN THE SASKTEL CENTRE!!! DDD IS POUNCING IN PLACE, WAITING AND SALIVATING OVER KASSIDY’S RECOVERY, WITH ROTTEN INTENTIONS PLANNED FOR HIS OPPONENT!!! KASSIDY IS HOLDING HERSELF JUST COMPLETELY RACKED WITH FATIGUE……….AND SHE’S FINALLY BACK UP! DON’T TURN AROUND! DON’T TURN AROUND!

Stew: SHE TURNS AROUND, DDD CHARGES AT KASSIDY WITH A LIMP, AND A SPEEEEEEEEEEARRR!!!!! BUT KASSIDY SPRINGS OVER THE SPEAR!!!! AND A CHOP BLOCK TO THE BACK OF THE RIGHT KNEE!!!!! NOW SHE TRIPS DDD TO THE MAT, AND LOCKS IN THE BRAZILIAN HEEL HOOK!!!! DDD HAS NOWHERE TO GO, HE’S FLAILING HIS ARMS AND DESPERATELY SEARCHING FOR A METHOD OF ESCAPE, YOU CAN HEAR HIM WAILING IN PAIN, AND KASSIDY IS CLINGING TO THAT HOLD FOR DEAR LIFE! COULD THIS BE IT?!

Talib: DDD’S THINKING ABOUT TAPPING!!! BUT HE STOPS HIMSELF RIGHT BEFORE HE GOES FOR IT, AND OPTS TO ROLL OVER TO HIS BACK, SIT UP AS KASS SITS UP WITH THE HEEL HOOK STILL APPLIED, AND KICKS KASSIDY RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE! Now DDD crawls away —

Stew: KASSIDY CRAWLS WITH HIM!!! BRAZILIAN HEEL HOOK APPLIED YET AGAIN!!!! AND DDD DRAGS WITH EVERYTHING HE HAS, EVERY VEIN PROTRUDING FROM HIS HEAD, AND HE MUSTERS UP THE REST OF WHAT HE HAS INSIDE OF HIM TO DRAG HIS OWN WEIGHT, AND KASSIDY’S WEIGHT, TO THE ROPES WHERE HE GETS THE ROPE BREAK!

Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!

( Kassidy releases the hold, rolls over and becomes consumed with emotion. )

Stew: You’ve got to feel for Kassidy Heart, she dumped every last bit of her reserves into that heel hook, and it still wasn’t enough! This looks like it’s been the most grueling, frustrating experience of her career, and DDD is already crawling away from the ropes Bari. Kassidy has that look in her eyes where she just knows she has to do SOMETHING. She rushes up to her feet, runs the ropes, AND SHE MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR PAINFULLY EVER AFTER!!!!!! CURB STOMP TIME?!?!?! WAIT NO… KASSIDY COLLAPSES TO ALL FOURS IN EXHAUSTION. Kassidy has overly exerted herself, and DDD pulls off both of his elbow pads now, stands over Kassidy, and LAYS INTO HER WITH BRUTAL ELBOW SHOTS TO THE HEAD WITH HIS LEFT AND RIGHT ELBOWS!!! KASSIDY HAS NOTHING LEFT, AND DDD, DESPITE HAVING HIS LOWER HALF COMPROMISED, IS USING ALL OF HIS STRENGTH BEHIND THOSE ELBOWS TO PUT KASSIDY’S LIGHTS OUT! JESUS REF JUST STOP THIS!

Talib: Kassidy would be damned before she allows him to do that, but she may not have an option! I’m surprised she isn’t busted open right now. Ahren looks on in contempt, and DDD drags her up from the mat by her hair from behind… AND APPLIES THE MK LOCK!!!!! MK LOCK!!!!!! VERTICAL MUTA LOCK ON A HELPLESS KASSIDY HEART, WHO WAS STOPPED IN HER TRACKS BY EXHAUSTION AND PUMMELED OUT OF CONSCIOUSNESS! AND THE OFFICIAL HOISTS KASSIDY’S LIMP ARM UP IN THE AIR………..AND IT DROPS LIKE A FEATHER! THAT’S IT, SHE’S OUT!

( DING! DING! DING! )

( “Illest Motherfucker Alive” by Jay Z and Kanye West hits, and DDD drops down to all fours panting out of adrenaline and a bit of physical exhaustion. )

Stephie Love: Here is your winner by referee decision…. MMMISTEEEEEEEEEEEERRRR DEEEEEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Talib: What a fitting freaking match for the final Dynasty of 2018! That was absolutely extraordinary from both of these two! Seriously, bravo :clap: :clap: :clap:

Stew: It’s a battle for me to give the credit where it’s due because I have no respect for DDD on a personal level, but it’s performances like this which is why I view DDD as the greatest inside of that ring, and the fact that Kassidy was able to put on such a performance at such a young age — I mean for heaven’s sakes Bari this young lady is 23 years old! 23 years old, and putting Mr. DEDEDE to more of a test than I’ve seen in years!

Talib: This was a different DDD, not the DDD who phoned it in the previous several weeks, he was absolutely laser focused and even then Kassidy had an answer for everything! She did not allow herself to be pinned, and she DAMN sure NEVER, NEVER quit. I think I gotta co-sign what you said before Stew, please bring this girl to Dynasty!

Stew: Yeah seriously. I will say my only critique of Kassidy in this match, which was inevitably her downfall, was how much energy she expended. She never stopped the offense, she never left a dull moment, but she didn’t pace herself the way DDD did and it left her unable to capitalize when she needed to the most. It was a folly you would expect from any competitor at her age regardless of the intangibles. But you want a hot take Bari? When these two meet in the ring again, Kassidy Heart WILL come out victorious.

Talib: Not as bold a take as some would think Stew! As long as Kassidy doesn’t let this loss break her, she will leave this match leagues above what she was entering it.

( Ahren is tending to Kassidy after the hard fought battle, and DDD walks up the ramp with a look on his face that could kill. )

Talib: DDD snapped into another element at the end of that with the MK Lock, and Cameron Ella Ava had better be prepared for unbridled savagery. Come to think of it we had all better be prepared, because at RTR we’re about to see Cam Kong against Gawdzilla.

Stew: *sigh*

( Camera transitions to The Score lockerroom, where Jason McKormick is doing pull-ups nearby, Shaker Jones is pacing around, and Ryan Wilson is standing in front of a vanity set hyping himself up. )

( SUDDENLY: Jason McKormick hops down from the pull-up bar and punches a crater into a locker. )

Jason McKormick: 50 PULL UPS! WHEW!!!!!! IT’S THE FUCKING DYNASTY MAIN EVENT TONIGHT BOYS!

Ryan Wilson: Sure is.

Jason: COME ON GUYS WAKE THE HELL UP! QUIT ACTING LIKE SOMEBODY DIED!

Shaker Jones: We’ve went over the strategy 100 times for tonight but something just feels like it’s off.

Ryan: I agree.. we’re missing a fatal piece of the puzzle I feel like, I mean I just don’t get why they’d agree to it being a 3-on-2 handicap match.

Jason: Do you see that big son of a bitch they got on their side?! He walks around like he’s a one man army! I can’t WAIT to cut his ass down! It’s going to be so glorious!

Shaker: This is the opportunity to make a resounding mark here on Dynasty, one that will last for a long, long time.

Jason: Well we aren’t going to make an impact with this kind of energy! This isn’t just an opportunity, this is DO OR DIE.

( Wilson turns around and approaches his cohorts. )

Ryan: You know what you’re right. This is it, this is the last chance we get, we don’t get any do-overs after tonight.

Shaker: This is true. For most other people a loss just means you dust yourself off and life goes on, but we are putting our reputation and the sanctity of our message on the line.

Jason: Time to go balls to the wall then brothers, this is the only opportunity we get, I’ll be damned if I let that sumbitch slip out of my hands! Let’s fucking do this!

( Jason McKormick walks to the door and swings it open, nearly knocking it off its hinges. Wilson and Jones nod and agree, and follow him out of the door. )

( Screen Bar: NEXT. )

( FINAL COMMERCIAL BREAK. )

(“I Want It All” — Queen plays through the speakers as the crowd reacts positively to the three men. The Score — Ryan Wilson, Shaker Jones and Jason McKormick come out and hype each other match for this main event match.)

Stephie Love: The following match is a 3-ON-2 HANDICAP MATCH and it’s scheduled for ONE FALL —

Crowd: ONE FALL!!

Stephie Love: Introducing first, they are the team of Ryan Wilson, Shaker Jones and Jason McKormick, THE SCCCCOOOOOOOORRRRRRREEEEEE!!

Talib: These three men have created an enemy on APOCALYPSE and Donovan Cross! These three have come together after being underutilized on Dynasty! These three men have been underestimated as they watched this brand being controlled by our lords and saviors, The One Percent! Before having to deal with that, they feel like they need to handle their opponents for tonight in this main event!

Stew: Ryan Wilson, Shaker Jones and Jason McKormick have gotten victories in the past against their opponents, but I think The Monster and The Devil have come back stronger from those defeats in the past! I think The Score will need to worry about that.

(“The Sound of Silence” — Necroblaspheme begins to play as APOCALYPSE and Donovan Cross come out with Soothsayer Hamasa behind them. Both men stand on top of the ramp and absorb the boos from the fans.)

Stephie Love: Introducing their opponents, being accompanied to the ring by Soothsayer Hamasa, they are the team of APOCALYPSE and Donovan Cross, THE MONSTER AND THE DEEEEEVVVVVVILLLLLLLL!!

Talib: This is one team I would not want to mess with! Plus, with APOCALYPSE suffering a loss against Lucas Johnson last week, I cannot imagine what he must be feeling at the moment! The Score are screwed when it comes to being in the ring with just APOCALYPSE! Add Donovan Cross into the mix and it’s game over for those three men!

Stew: Don’t count out The Score just yet, Talib! I feel like if these three have a good enough game plan, they could pull off a miracle and win the match! It will take a lot, but it’s not impossible!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Talib: Shaker Jones is starting off the match for The Score! After some consulting by Soothsayer Hamasa, Donovan Cross will begin the match for their team! The two men circle around each other! Both men are looking for the opening to turn the momentum onto their side! Shaker and Donovan lock up, but Donovan manages to get Shaker into a headlock! Shaker tries to lift Donovan into the air, but Donovan manages to keep his feet on the mat! DONOVAN LETS GO OF THE HEADLOCK BOUNCING ON THE ROPES AND CONNECTING WITH A LOU THESZ PRESS ONTO SHAKER JONES! DONOVAN BEGINS TO MOUNT AGAIN WITH SOME STIFF PUNCHES! DONOVAN IS NOT LETTING GO OF SHAKER AS HE RISES TO HIS FEET! DONOVAN GETS SHAKER BY ONE OF HIS ARMS BEFORE WHIPPING HIM INTO THE CORNER! DONOVAN TAKES A STEP BACK BEFORE RUNNING AND CONNECTING WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK! SHAKER BEGINS TO LOWER HIMSELF INTO A SEATED POSITION, BUT DONOVAN GETS SHAKER UP STRAIGHT AND BEGINS TO CONNECT WITH A KNIFE EDGE CHOP TO SHAKER’S CHEST! DONOVAN CROSS CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER KNIFE EDGE CHOP TO SHAKER’S CHEST! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! AND ANOTHER ONE! ANOTHER ONE! ANOTHER ONE! DONOVAN DELIVERS ONE LAST MEAN KNIFE EDGE JOB BEFORE THE OFFICIAL BACKS DONOVAN AWAY! SHAKER IS SHOWN RECOVERING ON THE CORNER BEFORE DONOVAN RETURNS TO WEAKEN SHAKER JONES EVEN MORE!

Stew: Donovan Cross gets Shaker Jones by his right arm before whipping him to the other corner! No! Shaker manages to counter as he is the one that whips Donovan to that opposite corner! Shaker runs straight away and connects with a flying forearm to Donovan at the corner! Donovan goes forward as Shaker gets Donovan and connects with a hip toss! Shaker connects with a loud shoot kick to Donovan’s spine! Shaker uses his elbow and elbows Donovan in his right shoulder! Over and over again, Shaker Jones is driving that elbow to Donovan’s shoulder! Shaker gets Donovan and slams him against the mat before he pounds away with a series of fiery fists on “The Devil” himself! Talib, APOCALYPSE has given that same intense and intimidating look to Shaker Jones the moment that bell rung! Shaker picks up Donovan while he maintains a glare at APOCALYPSE before he reaches in and tags in Ryan Wilson into the match!

Talib: Ryan Wilson connects with a back kick to Donovan Cross as Shaker Jones follows up that back kick with a snapmare to Donovan as he instantly drops! Ryan and Shaker go to the top turnbuckle! Ryan with a diving leg drop! Shaker with diving splash! The Score with The Tidal Wave! It connects! Ryan Wilson goes for the cover as Shaker Jones joins Jason McKormick back at their corner!

ONE! TWO!

Stew: Donovan Cross manages to kick out at two! The Score should know by know that it is going to take a lot to put away The Monster and The Devil! Ryan Wilson gets Donovan back to his feet before whipping him to the ropes! Donovan bounces off those ropes into a dropkick by Ryan! Ryan picks up Donovan and follows that up with a tornado ddt! Ryan drops Donovan on the top of his head before he gets himself back to his feet! APOCALYPSE sees his partner down and has one foot inside the ring! Soothsayer Hamasa is instructing for APOCALYPSE to stand in his corner! Hamasa is pointing out that now is not the time to attack! Ryan Wilson is gesturing for APOCALYPSE to do what Soothsayer Hamasa is telling him as APOCALYPSE does that! Ryan Wilson turns around and it met with a thrust kick by Donovan Cross! Ryan instantly goes down as Donovan tags in “The Monster” himself, APOCALYPSE! This is not going to be good, Talib!

Talib: MAN, RYAN WILSON IS F*CKED! LIKE, HAVE YOU SEEN THE SIZE OF APOCALYPSE? HAVE YOU SEEN HIM SLAM HRDO THROUGH THE RING AT PAIN FOR PRIDE X? THIS MAN IS NO LAUGHING MATTER! RYAN IS ALMOST LOOKING LIKE HE IS GOING TO TURN AROUND AND TAG IN ONE OF HIS PARTNERS! MIGHT BE THE SMART THING TO DO, KID! APOCALYPSE PICKS UP RYAN AND THROWS HIM TO THE CORNER! APOCALYPSE BEGINS FIRING AWAY IN SOME GIANT FISTS TO RYAN WILSON! APOCALYPSE IS GETTING REVENGE FROM RYAN JOKING WITH HIM JUST A FEW MOMENTS AGO! APOCALYPSE WITH A HUGE RIGHT HAND AS THAT INSTANTLY KNOCKS RYAN DOWN INTO A SEATED POSITION! JUST ONE FIST, STEW! JUST ONE PUNCH FROM “THE MONSTER” AND IT WAS ENOUGH TO KNOCK RYAN DOWN! JASON MCKORMICK AND SHAKER JONES ARE LOOKING AT THEIR PARTNER WITH CONCERN! THEY NEED TO THINK OF SOME WAY TO ASSIST THEIR PARTNER, WHO IS AN OBVIOUS DISADVANTAGE GOING UP AGAINST APOCALYPSE! APOCALYPSE GOES BACK A BIT! RYAN IS SLOWLY RISING BACK TO HIS FEET! OH MY GOD! APOCALYPSE WITH A RUNNING BODY PRESS! RYAN GOES DOWN! APOCALYPSE PICKS UP RYAN WILSON BY HIS RIGHT ARM AND CONNECTS WITH A SERIES OF SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINES! RYAN SEEMS TO BE OUT OF IT AT THE MOMENT, BUT THAT IS NOT STOPPING THIS GIANT! APOCALYPSE CONNECTS WITH ONE LAST SHORT-ARM CLOTHESLINE BEFORE KNOCKING DOWN RYAN AND GOING FOR A COVER! THIS MAY BE OVER!

ONE! TWO—

Stew: APOCALYPSE lifts Ryan Wilson by his head! That freak of nature is not done yet! APOCALYPSE gets Ryan back up to his feet before whipping him towards one of the corners again! APOCALYPSE takes a step back! Oh no! Is he going for the running body press again! APOCALYPSE runs towards Ryan and connects with a running dropkick! That amount of weight pressed up against Ryan seems like it is going to knock the wind out of him! APOCALYPSE picks up Ryan in a military press! He is going for that military press slam, Talib!

Talib: LOOK AT THAT, STEW! SHAKER JONES QUICKLY GETS INSIDE THE RING AND THAT MANAGES TO GET THE ATTENTION OF APOCALYPSE! SHAKER SLOWLY BACKS AWAY AS THE OFFICIAL IS DISTRACTED WITH SHAKER!

(“I Want It All” plays up again as Jason McKormick falls to his knees. Soothsayer Hamasa rolls Donovan Cross out of the ring as Shaker Jones and Ryan Wilson join their stablemate to get their arms raised by the official.)

Stephie Love: The winner of this match, Ryan Wilson, Shaker Jones and Jason McKormick, THE SCOOOOOOOOORREEEEEEEEE!!

Stew: What a main event, Talib! The Score stand tall to end this episode of Dynasty!

Talib: Those three got lucky tonight! They were smart though, they took out APOCALYPSE out of this equation! This made Jason McKormick focus on Donovan Cross without having to worry about APOCALYPSE rising back! These three men played well tonight! They took advantage of whatever situation to make sure APOCALYPSE did not dominate one of their own! These three men looked out for each other, they have sent their message loud and clear, and they are ready for their next phase on their journey here on Friday Night Dynasty!
