Dynasty 5/27/22

(EAW intro plays.)

(Friday Night Dynasty opens up with a recap of Battle of Egypt III: Alexandria Falls on the Dynasty side of things: The show kicks off with Solomon Stane and Kirk Redwood winning the Unified Tag Team Championships against The Haircare Kings and The High Rollerz. Alex Myers wins the New Breed Championship against Jon Kelton. Terry Chambers puts out an open challenge for Pain For Pride. Then in a ladder match with Sheridan Muller and Astraea Jordan participating in it, Kassidy Heart wins and challenges Andrea Valentine for the Universal Women’s Championship at Pain For Pride. Mr. DEDEDE beats SOSA Henderson. Then in the main event, Xander Payne attacks Ronn Banks after his victory against Jake Smith, standing tall to end the show and the recap.)

(Following the introduction video of Friday Night Dynasty, the scene opens up to a fireworks display around the stage before the cameras cut to pan around the Safaricom Indoor Arena, located in Nairobi, Kenya! The crowd is loud and clearly ready to get things going as “P.A.T.” by Denzel Curry plays inside the arena, their excitement all on display for the cameras to capture before cutting down to the ringside area on the commentary where the announcers await!)

Flannery McCoy: Welcome to another edition of Friday Night Dynasty! I’m Flannery McCoy, joined by Stew-O and-

Jake Mercer: And I’m the commentator that puts these other two to absolute shame – I’m Jake Mercer, here to carry this entire broadcast on my back! 💪

Flannery McCoy: :skip:

Stew-O: That’s up for debate, but nonetheless, what isn’t to be disputed is that we’re coming into this with Battle of Egypt III: Alexandria Falls behind us, meaning that we’re focused fully on getting to Pain for Pride! It’s one of the most exciting seasons to be a part of when everyone’s vying to get themselves on one of the most anticipated events of the year, and we’re looking at one of the biggest shows coming our way as we celebrate 15 years of EAW!

Flannery McCoy: So much history to be acknowledged while even more gets made right before our very eyes, and we’re getting just that as we look over what we’ve got coming toward everyone tonight: Andre Walker is set to kick things off after the incredibly tense and fiery exchange that he had with World Heavyweight Champion weeks ago; Cash in the Vault qualifying matches; Iconic Cup matches that continue with Serenity versus Veena Adams, and Sierra versus Specialists Champion Ximena Velasquez in what’s sure to be a deeply personal match; and there’d still be the matches between Bethany Blue and Andre Walker, and the triple threat featuring The Visual Prophet and recently announced Hall of Fame inductees Xander Payne and Andrea Valentine!

Jake Mercer: And that’s not even everything! There’s truly so much happening as we continue on our road to Pain for Pride that no one is going to want to miss, and with me here to commentate it all, you’ll be thanking yourselves for sticking around to witness it!

(As Jake comes to finish, “Leaving Caldan” by Hans Zimmer begins to play and the Kenyan crowd erupts into a mixed reaction for King of Elite winner Andre Walker, who also carries his Interwire Championship over his shoulder as he makes his way out onto the stage with Albert Hitchman in tow. The two of them stand there for a moment to look out at the thunderous crowd before heading down the aisle, Andre raising the Interwire Championship on his way to the ring.)

Stew-O: As promised, Andre Walker is here to follow up on the words that were shared between him and The Visual Prophet on Friday Night Dynasty just before Battle of Egypt III: Alexandria Falls, and it was an exchange that could have only ever shown just why this match is so highly anticipated!

Flannery McCoy: There was definitely something about Andre Walker and The Visual Prophet meeting in the ring like that to let not only each other but everyone else know what’s been going through their minds, and Andre made a lot of great points that-

Jake Mercer: Oh, because Viz didn’t?!

Flannery McCoy: That’s not what I-

Jake Mercer: Because he made it clear that the only one who’s been capable of handling the task of carrying this brand for as many seasons as he has – and at one point through a PANDEMIC, mind you – and I don’t see how that can be argued! I know you’re one of The Visual Prophet’s biggest haters all of a sudden-

Flannery McCoy: “All of a sudden”? Did you just magically forget that The Visual Prophet involved VPLA students in his-

Jake Mercer: Sounds like you’re getting ready to slander Viz’s good name some more, Flannery! If it wasn’t for me being here on commentary, I’m sure you’d be having a field day just dragging our esteemed World Heavyweight Champion through the mud completely unchecked! It’s why I can’t wait for Viz to eventually make his way out here and let Andre know what’s good; he’ll let him hype himself up and then put him in place, no doubt about it! 😤

(Andre and Albert have made their way into the ring where they stand with microphones in hand, the atmosphere buzzing as the stakes surrounding the World Heavyweight Championship and the men involved only appear grander. Passing the Interwire Championship to Albert, Andre allows “Leaving Caladan” to die down before he’s raising his microphone and speaking to address the awaiting audience.)

Andre Walker: I come to this ring knowing that what I’ve accomplished and the career that I’ve built has been unlike any other, that what I’ve achieved to set myself apart from the rest of the pack has been unfathomable to some of these other Elitists. They’ve dreamt of it for themselves, thought it’d sound nice if they could do it but knew deep down that there’d come a day that they’d have to settle for “almost” and “close enough” – but that was because they weren’t me. Having vacated the New Breed Championship – the very Championship that I broke records with, set unprecedented standards for – and then having lost the Cash in the Vault, I came into the season where people thought going for the Interwire Championship was beneath me. That just proved where my name was in the grand scheme of things, already positioned for what others had in mind for me. Andre Walker wasn’t supposed to be collecting on any opportunity that didn’t involve constantly being in the main event scene, but what those same people failed to understand is that I already knew I was working with something that everyone else just couldn’t grasp yet. Sure, it still took some tuning, but when I was still being tapped for main event matches and marquee matches with someone like Ronn Banks anyway, I knew that my potential for the future could only be sky-high.

Andre Walker: I put myself leaps and bounds ahead of others who were supposed to be coming up with me, trying to put ourselves over each other to be the face of things to come at any cost – some of them just weren’t ready to pay the price. Some of them just weren’t ready to take the kind of steps that I was – that I have, that I continue to – to be great and have it be something that’s looked at like it could’ve happened at any time because having that be recognized, wasn’t something they could handle. Being on the precipice like that, I made my adjustments and made the changes necessary to be able to reach out for when the moment was there for me to take it once it was there, and after that match against Banks, I took my mindset all the way to becoming King of Elite. I’ve dealt with all the attacks coming way that came from people trying to diminish me in stride, showed that I’m continuing to operate under the pressure that I created for myself in ways that go unrivaled – there’s no one like me or doing it like me regardless of their name and their stature.

(Andre looks around at the audience with Albert nodding along in the background, looking as if he expects someone to stand up and disagree but he’s allowed to go uninterrupted.)

Andre Walker: I mean, Kassidy, Xander, Andrea – all announced for the Hall of Fame recently but I’d still be named as one of the biggest challenges that they’d face right now. Do I even need to get into the rest of the roster just here on Dynasty on its own? It’s me putting them all on notice now because for every one of them that I’ve come across or have yet to, I know I’ve given so many of them examples of just what kind of levels there are to this when they see me in the ring competing – and there’s another on its way for when I’m in action against Bethany Blue tonight in case anyone needed a fresh reminder. Speaking of my opponent tonight who spent more time over this past week talking about StarrStan than her actual opponent at hand – when she did speak on me, it was about me supposedly being handpicked by StarrStan to main event Pain for Pride and it’s clear that she not only has no idea what the fuck she’s talking about but she also has no idea how her own contract stipulation works. Watch the product, Bethany. I called my own shot, I made it clear not too long after I won this crown that no matter who entered Pain for Pride as World Heavyweight Champion, I would be leaving as World Heavyweight Champion. I put MYSELF in the Pain for Pride main event. You COULD technically do that with your own Empress of Elite crown and there is nothing stopping you. Insert yourself into the Universal Women’s Championship match in an attempt to finally settle some score with Andrea that nobody cares about besides you, the power is in your hands. Then again, why do that when you can just complain and make excuses and point the finger-like you always do? Just talk about how management always overlooks you in favor of others since that seems to have overtaken being a doctor as your main personality trait.

Andre Walker: That’s what separates the two of us, I generate results… you generate excuses. It’s why Ronn Banks came back and faced me and not you, because even in a loss I was able to walk away with something valuable from that to apply to myself and become even better. You on the other hand would have taken a loss and would be so shortsighted that you’d still be complaining about it to this day and blaming Banks “burying” you as the reason why your career is stagnant. Later on tonight, I’m going to give you even more, to complain about when I show you who’s royalty reigns supreme here on the red brand. I know Viz will be watching closely too, because for as much shit as he likes to talk about how I just couldn’t be ready, he knows he can’t afford to go fucking this up for himself after all he did to drag himself back into the title picture.

Albert Hitchman: He’s been able to be one of the top guys in EAW for a while now and anyone could just look at that Prophetic Visions match against Drake King to see how it got truly established. We don’t have to get into how Drake would end up becoming more successful and bigger despite that right now, because this isn’t about that! It’s about Viz and how he went into last season with the world in the palm of his hand… up until he decided that he was going to make the dumb decision of having one of the worst performances a World Champion could have that year at Road to Redemption and managed to make it even worse by trying to follow Serena Bennett’s ass out the door, only to come running back for some forgettable match at Pain for Pride last year. Does anyone even remember it? Who was even involved and for what?

(Albert looks to Andre with a confused expression and Andre appears to be having some trouble recalling it himself.)

Andre Walker: Veena was on another one of her predictable power grabs or something, nobody cared – nothing worth hyping up that’s for sure. The kind of thing that happens when you drastically fuck up and you’re stuck with the unsatisfying leftovers just to be able to say that you at least got on the show. Fortunately for him, he’s not dealing with that this year because he’s got me to thank for drawing all the interest, the reason why he even gets to say that he’s closing out Pain for Pride this time, and why he gets an actually worthwhile challenger. Predictable outcomes and the rest of the world having no concern about him losing don’t exist when he meets me at Pain for Pride in the main event, he doesn’t get to skate by like he did against Terry or someone just coming back who wouldn’t be ready like Cage, or a whole Extreme Elimination Chamber where guys like Xavier Williams and Jack Ripley didn’t even want to be there – but you’re more than welcome to come out and dispute that if you want, Viz.

(Albert and Andre look to the stage, and the crowd can’t resist getting audibly excited at the possibility of another confrontation between the World Heavyweight Champion and King of Elite. Knowing how close it came to getting physical, there would only ever be hope for more to go down when this match is looking to be one of the most contentious going into Pain for Pride. ….But there’s no response from the Champion.)

Flannery McCoy: So is he just… not coming out? :lupe:

Stew-O: I mean, he should be – I haven’t heard about him not arriving at the arena.

Jake Mercer: The Visual Prophet will do things on HIS time when he’s ready! He doesn’t have to answer to this bum and his babysitter!

(Andre sighs and shakes his head looking underwhelmed.)

Andre Walker: After all you had to say on Dynasty I thought you’d be more than ready to get back on the mic, but you’ve got a history of letting people down, so I shouldn’t be surprised. It just means that I’ll be sure to finish the job that Lethal Consequences first started by sending you packing after you lose the World Heavyweight Championship again-

???: Look up, race traitor!

(Attention in the arena is diverted to the tron where the voice of The Visual Prophet calls out, and Andre and Albert are visibly confused by what they see. The World Heavyweight Champion and Dr. Angelo D’Angelo are at the center of what looks to be some sort of celebration, as people around them can be seen in vibrantly dressed outfits adorned in bracelets and necklaces of colorful beads, other people dancing complimented in furs, and some others with a few number of feathers dance to the sounds of drums and flutes.)

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: That could actually be trai-TOR or tra-DER, because Andre’s switched his out enough times for me to think that he’s probably thought about switching up on everyone again :mjpls:!

The Visual Prophet: And to think that I hadn’t even thought of that myself just now! But you’re right, Andre’s someone who’d do something like that when it’s real convenient for him and you’re right to point that out. You gotta keep an eye out for this one! I’d expect nothing less from a well-educated man such as yourself, Angie, so observant – it’s why I surround myself with only the best and it’d explain why instead of walking around the arenas with the rest of those so-called “stars” that really aren’t worth their hype, we’re here at the Bomas of Kenya :blessed:!!!

(Viz raises his arms out triumphantly and the camera pans around to show that the inside of its Auditorium has been vibrantly decorated. The apparent celebration continues with the crowd fully invested as they watch on, the EAW Universe getting to witness the world-traveled dance troupe’s performance that is being put on as all of this is happening.)

The Visual Prophet: Angelo and I have been nothing but welcomed since our arrival here, where they’ve so generously put together this special welcoming celebration just for us! Some of y’all in the locker room probably can’t even get a text back!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: :mjlol:! But it’s a whole lot better being here than somewhere where guys hate us because they aren’t us, so hostile because they’d rather see The Visual Prophet held back or restricted so that they can have a chance to shine. They talk about wanting us gone and throwing dirt on our reputations but are some of the first to demand we show up the second they go speaking our names – it’s a disgrace! I mean, how much more proof is needed that a man like The Visual Prophet is someone who’s needed to generate a product that’s worth a damn?! All anyone wants right now is him in that arena, letting Andre know what we already know about how Andre’s going to lose at Pain for Pride – but we actually had more important things to do!

The Visual Prophet: :wow:!!! There’s just no way we could pass up on being welcomed to the motherland like this, because how many moments like this are guaranteed? This isn’t something that happens for just anybody, and it’s definitely making me think about what kind of welcoming I should be walking into every time EAW has me stepping through any arena’s doors :mjpls:! When I talk about how far my reach goes and what kind of impact I have on the communities that I’m inspiring, it’s this that I’m talking about. Unbiased, no preconceived notions – they know that The Visual Prophet is nothing but the real deal. Being here and treated to performances by the Bomas Harambee Dancers, and discussing opening a Visual Prophet Leadership Academy in Kenya – I’m sensing a lot of progress is getting made! I’m right where I need to be, among my people and getting to celebrate culture that too many of y’all in the back just simply don’t have.

(Inside the ring, Andre looks annoyed as he watches what happens on the tron and Albert still doesn’t appear to have any understanding as to why this is happening. More dancers are shown at the location The Visual Prophet and Angelo are at, with Angelo encouraging the music and celebration to keep going. Knowing that their focus isn’t entirely on him, Andre’s had enough and goes raising his microphone.)

Andre Walker: And instead of meeting me in the ring like you should, Viz, you’re-

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: We’re enjoying our time being surrounded by our people, nothing wrong with that! The way I see it, it’s just as needed when EAW employs so many resentful and envious cacs who are just waiting for the day The Visual Prophet isn’t around to be a threat to their mayo mutant reigns of terror. It’s what happens when a black man gets too successful and the blue-eyed white devils who he’s supposed to bring himself down to call his “peers” can’t stand him being on top the way that he’s been able to. Maybe if they were actually good at what they do, had even the slightest bit of talent or ability to make themselves actual attractions, it wouldn’t be a problem for them – but what’s to be expected when so many of these intolerant YTs are all as pedestrian as the next?!

The Visual Prophet: You hate to see it! But that’s the world we live in, and all I’ve done is offer a look at what’s possible for so many people around the world and be that inspiration for them. Knowing how global I am, I’m not surprised at all to see that the opportunity to open one of my VPLA schools here is one that’s being met with such demand; there’s no one out there doing this like I am. It really puts it into perspective though that it’s a real shame EAW isn’t ever going to host a show in Samoa where you’d get a reception like this, Andre, but you know what? Crazier things have happened, so don’t rule it out just yet… unless by that time you’ve already gone and changed your identity again!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: :mjlol:!!!

Andre Walker: You might’ve been able to get away with not taking any of your past opponents seriously – causing problems in tag matches, making jokes out of their careers – but I’m not the one you wanna do that with, I promise you. I’m not like the rest-

(But seeing Angelo nudge The Visual Prophet with his elbow while taking a sip from a drink, Andre stops as he watches the two of them get into their own conversation while the beat that Angelo is moving to in his seat continues to play.)

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: He maybe even actually could’ve been getting the same kind of welcome two years ago, you know… AFTER he had just finished up his free trial of trying out being another bland cac on the roster and deciding it wasn’t for him.

The Visual Prophet: Can’t figure out if he wants that soccer mom haircut, look anything like us, or get tribal tattoos for his Samoan aesthetic – for shame!

Dr. Angelo D’Angelo: It’s sick! That’s how easy it is for the corporate devils to get someone though, they make them change who they are so they can be more “marketable” when it’s a code word for being palatable for white audiences. A disgrace is what it is! But what gets instilled in students and members of VPLA is letting the community know they don’t have to be another Andre Walker when they should only have to unapologetically be themselves.

The Visual Prophet: :wow:!!!!

Andre Walker: Alright, this has turned into nothing but a joke and not at all what I came out here for. You don’t feel like you have to take me seriously? It’s stupid, it’s a mistake, when I say I’m not like the others I mean it and you’re set to find out sooner or later, and if you keep it up, it’ll be far too late because I’ll have already won-

The Visual Prophet: Stop your crying, damn. Can’t you see us trying to enjoy ourselves?! I got better things to do than let you hype yourself in some back and forth so that you can go into our match sounding like a threat. I just don’t have the time! I’ll be at the arena for my match later, but for now, I gotta go!

(Andre watches on in disbelief as The Visual Prophet pushes the camera away, Angelo still rocking to the beat of the drums in his seat. The feed to the Bomas of Kenya Auditorium is cut off and Andre is seen pointing at the tron while he talks to Albert, clearly annoyed with the fact that this is how things just went down.)

Flannery McCoy: What just happened? :skip:

Jake Mercer: A hero’s welcome, that’s what! They went all out of The Visual Prophet and I for one think that we should do the same for him when he gets here for his match later!

Stew-O: Andre Walker definitely isn’t pleased with it, though, and I really have to wonder if The Visual Prophet going about things this way with Andre is the right thing to do. Andre’s got everything going for him as a viable threat-

Jake Mercer: To who, Stew? To who?! He’s been good this whole time but against someone like The Visual Prophet, that’s a whole other mountain to climb and he just might find out he’s going to be in over his head! The way I see it, that Interwire Championship could be all Viz’s for the taking and he’ll be walking out of Pain for Pride as a double champ-yun before you know it!

(Andre continues to voice his frustrations to Albert, who certainly doesn’t know what to do about this as neither of them anticipated Viz not even being in the arena at the moment. As the Interwire Champion continues to fume about what was said by The Visual Prophet and Angelo, the scene fades out.)

(A commercial is shown for Pain For Pride XV, featuring The Visual Prophet versus Andre Walker in a Winner Takes All match for both the World Heavyweight Championship and the Interwire Championship.)

(Friday Night Dynasty comes back from commercial break as the camera goes over to show Stephie Love standing at the center of the ring with a smile on her face and a microphone in her hand, ready to announce the first match of the night!)

Stephie Love: The following is a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH!!! And it is a bout scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘Martyr’ by Yasuharu Takanashi & YAIBA hits the speakers as the camera goes over to show Xerxes Godfrey making his way out from the backstage area. He has a serious expression on his face as he takes a look around before then beginning to make his way down the ramp and towards the ring.)

Stephie Love: INTRODUCING FIRST, CURRENTLY RESIDING IN CHARING CROSS; LONDON, ENGLAND!!!!… WEIGHING IN AT 215 POUNDS!!!… HE IS ‘THE PROGENITOR’!!!!… XERXESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!… GOOOOODDDDDDDDDDFFFFFFFFRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!

Jake Mercer: I can’t get over the fact that he changed his name :mjcry:. I for one was a very avid fan of the Final Fantasy series and I, along with the rest of Social Stream, miss the Cloud Stryfe name as much as everyone else does.

Flannery McCoy: Name one Final Fantasy character.

Jake Mercer: Uh… Solid Snake.

Flannery McCoy: :skip:

Stew-O: Anyway, tonight Xerxes will be taking on Nick Hart and Liana DeLions in the first match of the night here on Dynasty. Let’s see if he will be able to have what it takes to get through some tough competition here tonight!

Flannery McCoy: That’s right, along with the many names that he has he also has a lot of talent that he possesses, as made evident by his time on Dynasty so far. I can’t wait to see the action that’s about to begin tonight!

(‘Catalina Fight Song’ by Joyce Manor is then heard playing up as the camera goes over to show an unhappy Nick Hart making his way out to the stage. For obvious reasons, he’s very displeased, but at the same time, determined in the process, as he then begins to make his way down the ramp and towards the ring.)

Stephie Love: NEXT, FROM PORTLAND, OREGON!!!.. WEIGHING IN AT 225 POUNDS!!!… HE’S THE ‘MAN OF 1000 PINS’!!!!!…. NICK!!!!!!!.. HARRRRRRRRRTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!

Jake Mercer: 1000 pins? :dame: Do you think we can fact-check this off of Reddit or something?

Stew-O: Can you please shut up dude. Usually, I can handle this but man.

Jake Mercer: I’ve only said-

Stew-O: No.

Jake Mercer: :comeagain:

Flannery McCoy: Well Nick hasn’t had a great start to his EAW career so far, but tonight he’s coming into this bout intending to redeem himself. I’m excited to see how that turns out when this match is officially underway.

( ‘Walk With Me in Hell’ by Lamb Of God then begins to play up as Liana DeLion is seen making her way out from the backstage area and towards the stage. She looks around at the crowd before shaking her head and then beginning to make her way to the ring.)

Stephie Love: AT LAST, FROM TAMPA, FLORIDA!!!… WEIGHING IN 232 POUNDS!!!… SHE’S ‘THE GODDESS’!!!!… LIANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA… DEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLIIIIIIIOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jake Mercer: And here she is! The Goddess of EAW! The Best in the world! Liana Delions!!

Stew-O: You didn’t just say that.

Jake Mercer: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Liana is not having a really good time in EAW although she’s still happy to be here and fight for herself. Maybe she might pick a win up here tonight against these two! I think that sounds ground!

( DING DING DING!!!! )

Stew-O: Three ways match is underway and here we go, Xerxes hops off his corner so as Nick and Liana… Both Liana and Nick look and signal to each other. Liana nods at Nick and walks over to Xerxes with a smile on her fa- WAIT!!! NICK WITH A ROLL-UP FROM BEHIND!!!

ONE!!!-

Jake Mercer: Xerxes quickly breaks a pin! Xerxes picks Nick and throws him outside the ring… Liana gets back to her feet and looks for a German Suplex… Xerxes back elbows right across her jaw, steps away from her to the front, and rocks her with a chest kick… Liana catches Xerxes’ leg, and tosses it away… Xerxes bounces off the ropes and Liana sends him down to the mat with an arm drag!… But Xerxes lands on his feet. Xerxes pulls Liana back to her feet, sends her to the ropes, and dropkicks to her face! Liana falls to the mat… Xerxes rises back to both feet and connects her with a Meteora!!!

Flannery McCoy: Xerxes is about to go for a pin but look from behind! Nick Hart is back! Nick elbows the back of Xerxes’ head. Nick picks Xerxes up, and sends him to the corner… Nick runs up- Xerxes ducks under, rolls him down to the middle of the ring, and puts him into the shadow realm with a destructive penalty kick!… But Nick catches his leg! Nick spins him around, superkicks to the back of his head, and backslides Xerxes!! He’s going to win this already???

ONEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Stew-O: Close call! Liana breaks a pin! Liana recovers herself back to her feet while Nick tries to capitalize after failing to put Xerxes down… Xerxes crawls down to the bottom rope, grabs up, and tries to get himself back into this match. Liana runs up to Nick but Nick goes around instead and brings her down to the mat quickly with a Dragon Suplex!… Liana resists it, She tries to escape it-

Jake Mercer: Xerxes comes back to his feet and… Switchblade kick to Liana and Nick connects her with a Dragon Suplex! What an unexpected teamwork from both men! Nick rises back to both feet… Xerxes runs up to Nick and puts him down to the mat with a flying forearm! Xerxes successfully took Nick down but Nick immediately rises back to both feet unconsciously… Xerxes runs to Nick again, low dropkicks to his right leg, kips up back to his feet, and shoot kicks to the side of his head! Nick is stunned by a kick from Xerxes… Xerxes picks him back to his feet, grabs him around, and Northern Lights Suplex to Nick Hart from Xerxes Godfrey! Xerxes comes back to his feet and is about to go for a pin on Nick…

Flannery McCoy: Wait, Liana is back to her feet! She’s coming for Xerxes! She spins around and goes for a discus lariat. Xerxes ducks under and sends him to the ropes. Xerxes pops her up in the air and rocks her chin with a knee-strike! Pop-up Knee Strike connected! Xerxes holds her on… Release tiger suplex to Liana! Xerxes drops down on Liana and goes for a pin!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Stew-O: RUNNING SHOOTING STAR PRESS FROM NICK HART ON BOTH COMPETITORS!!!! NICK IS BACK OUT OF NOWHERE AND BREAKS A PIN WITH HIS MOVE!!! Xerxes rolls out of his way after taking a shooting star press while pinning Liana. Liana is still down on the mat and Nick looks to steal a win from Xerxes!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

….

Jake Mercer: XERXES JUMPS DOWN AND BREAKS THE PIN IN TIME!! VERY CLOSE ONE FOR NICK HART!!

Flannery McCoy: Nick crawls down to the ropes while Xerxes tries to pick himself back to both feet and Liana is still down in the middle of the ring. Nick leans on the ropes and looks at Xerxes… Nick runs down to Xerxes for a spear but Xerxes catches him in a mid-run with a roundhouse kick! Nick falls back to the ropes… REBOUNDS BACK AND LOOKS FOR A SPEAR ONE MORE TIME BUT XERXES CATCHES HIM AGAIN WITH AN OPEN-HANDED SLAP RIGHT ACROSS HIS FACE!!! Nick stumbles down to his knees after taking that slap. Xerxes picks him back to both feet… TIGER DRIVER ON NICK HAR- WAIT, NICK STRUGGLES OUT OF IT, TURNS THINGS AROUND AND PUTS XERXES DOWN WITH A SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX, AND PROCEEDS WITH A BRIDGE PIN!!! NICK IS GOING TO DO IT???? WOULD THIS BE IT??????

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

….

Stew-O: Liana breaks a pinfall! She’s back to stop Nick from winning! Xerxes rolls down and lays around the apron while Nick and Liana try to get themselves back into this match. Nick is the first one to run up to his opponent again but Liana grabs his arm in a mid-run, twists it around, and runs up for CODEBREAKER ON NICK HAR- SIT-OUT POWERBOMB ON LIANA!!!! NICK CATCHES HIM WITH A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!!! NICK HITS IT AND CONNECTS WITH A PIN ON LIANA!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

….

Flannery McCoy: FROG SPLASH!!! XERXES IS BACK IN THIS RING TO BREAK A PIN!! WHAT A WAY TO TURN THINGS DOWN!!!!

( The crowd goes wild for this match and how it’s going so far. The camera pans to all three competitors in this match that looks tired and try to figure out when one of them is going to win this match. )

Stew-O: What a match that has been through this so far. All of them pick themselves up at the same time… Liana runs up to Nick and takes him down with a shoulder block!… NICK RESISTS AND DOES NOT BACK HIMSELF DOWN FROM THE FIGH- CLINCH ELBOW SMASH FROM XERXES RIGHT ACROSS NICK’S JAW!!! XERXES TRIES TO CONNECT WITH A BIG BOOT- NICK CATCHES HIS LEG AND SENDS IT RIGHT STRAIGHT TO LIANA’S FACE!! NICK COMES BACK AND ROLLS XERXES UP….

Jake Mercer: BUT XERXES ROLLS BACK TO HIS FEET INSTEAD… ‘PHANTOM PAIN’!!!!!!!!!!!!! AVADA KEDAVRA!!!! SUPERKICK TO NICK!!! NICK IS OUT-

Flannery McCoy: LIANA JOINS BACK IN THE RING, GRABS XERXES, AND LOOKS FOR ‘LIONS DEN’ !!!!…. XERXES FLIPS OVER, LAND ON HIS FEET, KICKS TO HER GUT, AND PUTS HER DOWN WITH A ‘PIECE OF EDEN’!!!!!!!!! PEDIGREE ON LIANA, XERXES GOT IT!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

( DING DING DING!!!! )

(‘Martyr’ begins to play up once again while Xerxes Godfrey begins to get back up to his feet. The referee then begins to raise his hand in victory while Xerxes has a smirk on his face. From there, he then begins to celebrate his victory inside of the ring.)

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER!!!… XERXES GODFREY!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: What a win by Xerxes here tonight! Getting back on track heading into Pain For Pride XV! Those two did great out here despite getting taken out by Xerxes but at least they have their moments. I do not doubt that they’ll have more than enough chances in the future to get back on track.

Jake Mercer: Yessir, we are pushing the Queen Liana’s Agenda.

Flannery McCoy: Both Nick and Liana tonight were doing a great job but in the end, the victory falls to Xerxes Godfrey, and congrats, Xerxes!

(A commercial is shown for EAW’s “official” NFTs featuring Ronan Malosi.)

(‘Sugar We’re Falling Down’ by Fall Out Boy would begin to blast through the arena, a mixed reaction of cheers, yet harsh boos to outweigh the cheers are given as Harley Lewis walks through the curtain. In his ring gear, Harley would cockily walk down to the ring, oozing confidence as he would make it down to the ringside. He would grab a Microphone, and walk up the steps, before entering into the ring. Harley would stand in the middle of the ring, breathing in all the boos as he would bring the Microphone up.)

Harley Lewis: YOU ALL LOVE ME!!! :mjgrin:!!!!!

Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Harley Lewis: I HEAR Y’ALL!!!! :blessed:!!!!!!! You already know, it goes without saying that I deserve to be in the position that I am in right now. I deserve to have made it to the Semi-Finals of the New Era Classic Tournament at Grand Rampage, I deserve to have beaten Caroline at Grand Rampage, and advance into the Finals of the Tournament at Pain For Pride, and I will deserve to be known as the inaugural winner of the New Era Classic Tournament when I BEAT Joso at Pain For Pride! Isn’t that right, my adoring fans?!

Fan: YOU STINK!

(Harley would look towards the Fan who yelled that, and point at him.)

Harley Lewis: THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT! LOVE YOU TOO!! Anyways, so yeah! I just came down to do a little early celebration in advance! Not only for my Match against Joso at Pain For Pride, but for my Match against Terry Chambers here tonight on Dynasty! Because seriously, does anyone really think that a watered-down Terry Chambers will be able to beat me? Harley Lewis?- Actually..don’t answer that! I already know you guys know I got this win! :drakelike: I have been working my ass off day in and day out since joining Elite Answers Wrestling, and I have no signs of slowing down. When times get tough, I keep pushing. Why? BECAUSE I’M MADE FOR THE FAME! I’M MADE FOR SUCCESS! No matter what happens, I excel in everything I do. I prove day in and day out that I am better than someone like Joso, because guess what? I am! I am better than Joso! I will always be better than Joso, because anything that he can do? I can do BETTER!

(Harley Lewis would suddenly be cut off, as ‘Trophies’ by Drake begins to blast throughout the arena, as yet another mixed reaction with outweighing boos occurs as Joso would walk through the curtain. Joso would quickly walk down the ramp, talking shit to Harley while he is at it, before grabbing a Microphone, rolling into the ring, and getting right into the face of Harley Lewis.)

Joso: YOU’RE SAYING THAT YOU ARE BETTER THAN ME?!

Harley Lewis: Well..yes I am! I mean, is there any doubt about it? Be honest with me, do you really think that you are better than Harley Lewis? I don’t know if you remember, but I actually have a win over you. Remember when I teamed up with Bryant Coffey to face yourself and Angelo Carter? Yeah, we beat you that night! We sent a message to both you and Angelo Carter, and it seems that Angelo actually listened, and he packed his bags and got out of here. But for you? It just seems like you couldn’t take the message how it was, and you decided to stay, and by doing that, by even getting to the Finals of the New Era Classic, you set yourself up for automatic failure. You set yourself up for a failure that you won’t be able to handle, and why? Because you’re facing Harley Lewis? Why? Because you are facing someone who is better than you on so many levels. But yet, you just can’t admit that right? You can’t admit I’m better than you? Come on, Joso —- admit to the whole world that Harley Lewis is truly better than you. Save yourself the embarrassment so that it doesn’t hurt as badly when you lose to me at Pain For Pride, knowing that you lost to someone who will always be better than you.

Joso: …No, Harley. I’m not going to “admit it” —- I’m not going to “admit” to any of the lies that you are saying right now. Why? Because they are exactly that. Lies. THEY AREN’T TRUE! Do you want to hear the truth? You aren’t better than me, and you never will be. You wanted to hear the truth, right, Harley? That win you have against me was because of Angelo Carter, not me. You keep saying you want the truth just so badly, Harley, yet you are telling lies after lies after lies. You are making a lie and classifying it as the truth —- it’s not. So you want me to admit “the truth”? No, why don’t YOU admit the truth? Why don’t YOU admit that I’M BETTER? Because Harley, I am. We both had similar runs in the New Era Classic, but do you want to know the difference? Unlike you, I was facing actual competition. While you were facing the likes of Oliver Taylor? Roberto De La Rosa? While you were facing the likes of Angelo Carter? I was facing the likes of Pandora Paisley. I was facing the likes of ARIA, and I was facing the likes of Danny Tanner, who is surprisingly bigger competition than anyone you have faced. While you were beating Caroline to get into the Finals of the New Era Classic Tournament, who was I beating? Aurora Monroe. So tell me, Harley —- who really is better?

Harley Lewis: I-

Joso: I’M BETTER! I’M BETTER THAN YOU! And Harley, I will prove it once again when I beat Nariko tonight, while you will be losing to Terry Chambers-

Harley Lewis: OH, NO! NO! NO! While YOU’RE losing to Nariko, I’LL be beating Terry Chambers! And at Pain For Pride, I’M beating YOU-

Joso: INCORRECT!

Harley Lewis: NO, I THINK IT’S PRETTY CORRECT! You know I’m better than you! JUST ADMIT IT!

Joso: I’m not going to lie on national Television, bitch! I’m not just going to lie in front of national television just to make you feel better about yourself. I understand, Harley, you’re insecure. You’re insecure that Harley Lewis will never be better than Joso, and you know what? That is okay. Do you want to know why? Because you’re not alone. You’re not alone in the column of people who Joso is better than. You can join- Nah, you have already joined the likes of ARIA, Pandora Paisley, Aurora Monroe, Danny Tanner, Abel Atami, and so much more who Joso was, is, and always will be better than, and I will just prove my point even further come Pain For Pride, because you can’t do anything about it. I will just prove my point even further tonight against Nariko, because you can’t do anything about it.

Harley Lewis: You really are full of yourself, Joso.

Joso: You’re the one to talk about being full of themselves.

(Harley Lewis would get into the face of Joso, as they lower down their Microphones, and they both start mouthing fighting words towards each other. Meanwhile…)

Crowd: YOU BOTH SUCK! YOU BOTH SUCK! YOU BOTH SUCK! YOU BOTH SUCK-

(Joso and Harley Lewis would look up at the attendance, and raise their Microphones back up, as they both say at the same time..)

Joso and Harley Lewis: SHUT UP!!!!!

Crowd: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :patrickboo:

Harley Lewis: Joso, just admit it —- just admit that I’m better than you.

Joso: NO! You admit that I’M better than YOU!

Harley Lewis: IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY, BUD!

Joso: You know what? Fuck you.

Harley Lewis: :comeagain:

Joso: I said what I said, twin. I got bigger things to focus on, like this match later in the night that I’m going to win. Maybe you should tune in, you’ll see what your future beholds for you at Pain For Pride. You’ll realize that Joso… don’t miss.

(Joso would drop the Microphone, and would shove Harley Lewis down to the ground before exiting the ring, knowing that he needs to save his energy for his Match against Nariko later tonight. As Joso walks away, ‘Trophies” begins to blast one again, while Harley Lewis gets back up to his feet, and he starts taunting Joso as the camera fades elsewhere.)

(A commercial is shown for the New Era Classic finals at Pain For Pride XV, with Joso going up against Harley Lewis.)

(Friday Night Dynasty comes back from commercial break to show Stephie Love standing at the center of the ring with a microphone in her hand ready to announce the next match!)

Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!!!!! :blessed:!!!!

Stephie Love: And it is an Iconic Cup Tournament Block A Match!!!

(‘Hey Superstar’ by Madina Lake would begin to blast through the arena, as a mixed reaction is given to Sierra when she walks through the curtain! Looking disappointed but more determined than ever, Sierra walks down the ramp, and would climb up onto the apron, before entering the ring and backing into her corner.)

Stephie Love: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA…SHE IS THE ‘KILLJOY’…SIERRA!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Sierra has had a very bumpy road in this Tournament, more recently losing to her once former best friend, Harper Lee, but now she’s more determined than ever to beat another one of her former friends in the current Specialist Champion, Ximena Velasquez!

Stew-O: But that won’t be a very easy task, as Sierra knows very well that Ximena has a lot of advantages over her, and she will use those advantages to try and win this Match herself.

(As ‘Hey Superstar’ fades away, it is replaced by ‘Recreant’ by Chelsea Grin, a very positive reaction of cheers is given to the current Specialist Champion, as Ximena Velasquez walks through the curtain! Looking more confident than ever, Ximena would make her way down to the ring, walking up the steps and entering into the ring, and taking the moment to taunt Sierra with the Specialist Championship before backing into her corner.)

Stephie Love: AND HER OPPONENT…FROM EL PASO, TEXAS…SHE IS THE CURRENT SPECIALIST CHAMPION…’LA DIOSA’…XIMENA VELASQUEZ!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: Since winning the Specialist Championship at Grand Rampage, ‘La Diosa’ has been more confident than ever! Getting a win over Mary S. Atlas in the Iconic Cup Tournament, and now tonight, looking to beat her former partner Sierra to continue her momentum!

Jake Mercer: Big Muscles La Diosa Ximena Velasquez Mami!!!! :blessed:!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Can you stop?

Jake Mercer: But-

Stew-O: Please.

Jake Mercer: :mjcry:

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: HERE WE GO, AND SIERRA IMMEDIATELY RUNS AT XIMENA VELASQUEZ TRYING TO TAKE HER OUT! This Iconic Cup Tournament Match between two former partners and friends is underway, and Sierra is able to get Ximena off her feet early on here, which is a huge feat in itself! Ximena Velasquez is down to her knees, and Sierra is letting off with the elbows and knees, as she is trying to get Ximena down-..but Ximena pushes her away, before getting back up to her feet.

Jake Mercer: But Ximena Velasquez isn’t going to be given much time, as Sierra runs off the ropes and catches Ximena with a dropkick before she could get up to her feet! Ximena falls down and Sierra is going for an early cover!

OOOOOOOONNN-

Flannery McCoy: But Ximena with a powerful kickout, pushing Sierra right up to a vertical base! Sierra backs away, as Ximena Velasquez is able to get back up to her feet, and this isn’t good for Sierra as she tries running at the Specialist Champion, BUT XIMENA CATCHES SIERRA WITH A CHOP TO THE CHEST! Sierra just collapses, and Ximena kicks at Sierra while she’s down, adding insult to injury! Sierra tries to roll away, but Ximena doesn’t allow it as she drags Sierra back up to her feet…and she connects with another chop to the chest, and that drops Sierra through the ropes and onto the apron!

Stew-O: Sierra is down on the apron, as Ximena drags her back up to her feet..but Sierra kicks Velasquez right in the knee, before entering back into the ring. Ximena backs up, as Sierra gets a short rebound off the rope, and catches Ximena with a low dropkick, dropping Ximena down to a knee. Sierra takes advantage of yet another opportunity of space given, and connects with a superkick right to the face! This gives Sierra the breathing room she needs, as she backs into the corner, looking down at the prone body of Ximena Velasquez. Sierra takes a moment to think to herself, before she looks to go to the top rope-

Jake Mercer: BUT RIGHT THEN, XIMENA VELASQUEZ GETS RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET AND DRAGS SIERRA DOWN TO THE MAT! That was a harsh landing for Sierra, as Sierra is able to instantly get back up to her feet, but Ximena throws her right into the corner, and she starts throwing those violently powerful punches into the midsection of the Sierra! Sierra isn’t able to defend herself, as Ximena grabs Sierra by the neck..AND SHE THROWS SIERRA ACROSS THE RING! Ximena throws Sierra right across the ring like she was nothing, and that was a very harsh landing once again!

Flannery McCoy: The Referee instructs for Ximena to back away as she goes to check on Sierra, but almost instantly, Sierra, with the help of the ropes, gets up to her feet and waving off the Referee, notifying for this Match to continue..which causes Ximena to run full speed ahead at Sierra in the corner!!

Stew-O: BUT SIERRA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY! Ximena hits the corner hard, and now Sierra holds Ximena as she pulls her towards her..and pushes her right back into the corner once again! Sierra has a strategy in this Match and she is using it effectively, as she then exits onto the apron, and connects with an enzuigiri onto Ximena. That causes Ximena to back out of the corner, as Sierra would climb right back up to the top rope, as she has Ximena right where she wants her…and she jumps, connecting with a top rope low dropkick to the knee once again, and Ximena goes down!

Jake Mercer: NO SHE DOESN’T! XIMENA VELASQUEZ IS STILL ON HER FEET SOMEHOW, AND AS SIERRA STAGGERS BACK UP TO HER FEET…SHE IS MET WITH A BIG BOOT RIGHT TO THE FACE! Sierra goes right back down, but Ximena doesn’t give her any time, dragging Sierra right back up to her feet, before throwing her over her shoulders, connecting with a pumphandle slam! Ximena has taken control back in this Match, and while Sierra is trying to get some space, Ximena won’t let her have it, as she just boots a prone Sierra right in the face. Sierra is trying to get away, but Ximena drops down to her level..AND XIMENA LOCKS IN A CALF CRUSHER! SIERRA HAS ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE TO GO, AND XIMENA IS WRENCHING THE CALF CRUSHER IN TIGHTER!

Flannery McCoy: SIERRA IS TRYING TO GET TO THE ROPES, BUT SHE IS IN THE WRONG POSITION, AS SHE IS TURNED FACING AWAY FROM THEM! It doesn’t help that the weight, height and strength advantages are all on the side of Ximena Velasquez, as it makes the calf crusher that much more hard to escape, and it’s being showcased right now as Sierra has not been able to escape whatsoever! Sierra is still trying to fight out of it, but she just can’t make any movement whatsoever, and Ximena might be getting a submission victory and three points here!

Stew-O: But look! Sierra is making some movement! It’s barely anything, but it looks to be a start as Sierra is trying to reposition herself towards the ropes, while Ximena is only making it tighter and tighter! Sierra is continuing to pull herself backwards to the ropes…BUT WAIT! LOOK! Sierra was able to pull backwards and got Ximena’s feet under the ropes, which will cause the Referee to force a ropebreak! Ximena lets go of the calf crusher, and you can tell that Ximena is annoyed at the way the submission was broken! Ximena Velasquez gets back up to her feet, and backs away as Sierra starts to make some movement once again, being able to get back up to her feet with the help of the ropes.

Jake Mercer: Sierra is back to her feet, as she looks towards Ximena..but Ximena catches Sierra with yet another big boot! Sierra falls back down-…but Ximena catches Sierra and drags her back up, before connecting with a DDT! Ximena connects with a DDT on Sierra, and Ximena now goes for a cover!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: BUT A KICKOUT BY SIERRA! Sierra was able to pop the shoulder off the mat, and that will cause for the Match to continue, and I don’t think Ximena likes it! Ximena begins to get back up to her feet, as Sierra does the same, looking towards Ximena…SIERRA HITS A BICYCLE KICK RIGHT TO THE ARM OF XIMENA AS SHE WAS GOING FOR A CLOTHESLINE! Sierra saw the clothesline coming and she connects with a bicycle kick right to the arm, and NOW SHE CONNECTS WITH ANOTHER ONE! Ximena is caught off guard as she tries to back away, but Sierra connects with a superkick right to the face! Sierra has Ximena where she wants her, and now she runs off the ropes…AND SIERRA LOOKS FOR ELECTRIC FEEL! SIERRA GOES FOR THE ROLLING KOPPU KICK BUT XIMENA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY!

Stew-O: BUT THAT DOESN’T STOP SIERRA, AS SHE GETS RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET, AND AS XIMENA RUNS TOWARDS HER, SIERRA MOVES OUT OF DODGE, AND ONTO THE APRON! Ximena tries to grab Sierra, but she doesn’t allow it as Sierra then jumps onto the ropes…AND GETS A SUNSET FLIP ON XIMENA, PULLING HER DOWN..BUT SHE DOESN’T GO FOR A PIN! SIERRA ROLLS THROUGH IT AND CONNECTS WITH A STANDING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP, AND NOW SHE RUSHES TO THE TOP ROPE, BEFORE JUMPING OFF AND CATCHING XIMENA WITH A DOUBLE FOOT STOMP AGAIN! SIERRA GOES FOR THE PIN!

OOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jake Mercer: KICKOUT BY XIMENA VELASQUEZ-

Flannery McCoy: SIERRA TRANSITIONS INSTANTLY INTO A CROSS ARMBAR! SIERRA HAS THE CROSS ARMBAR LOCKED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, AND XIMENA HAS NOWHERE TO GO! XIMENA IS TRYING TO CRAWL TO THE ROPES, BUT SIERRA IS JUST KICKING HER RIGHT IN THE HEAD FORCING XIMENA TO STAY RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE! Ximena is trying to reach the ropes, but she is too far away and Sierra has the cross armbar in tight, and she’s still kicking away at the head of Ximena! Ximena Velasquez is in a very tough position right now, and it looks like she might be on the verge of tapping to her former partner in crime!

Stew-O: BUT XIMENA VELASQUEZ IS STILL TRYING TO FIGHT OUT OF IT! XIMENA IS TRYING TO DO WHATEVER IN HER POWER TO MAKE SURE THAT SHE CAN GET OUT OF THIS CROSS ARMBAR, AND HER STRENGTH AND POWER MAY BE THE KEY TO THAT! Sierra is trying to hold the submission in tighter, but Ximena is making movement and starting to make it to her feet! Ximena is up on her feet, AND XIMENA IS RAISING SIERRA IN THE AIR WITH HER! WHILE THE CROSS ARMBAR STILL BEING LOCKED IN, XIMENA IS LITERALLY HOLDING ONTO SIERRA, AND SHE DROPS HER DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB!!!

Jake Mercer: WAIT NO!! XIMENA WENT FOR A POWERBOMB BUT SIERRA WAS ABLE TO AVOID IT AND KEEP IN THE CROSS ARMBAR! XIMENA IS BACK DOWN AND NOWHERE TO GO ONCE AGAIN! Much like Sierra was earlier in the Match, now it’s Ximena who looks like she might be on the verge of tapping out! Ximena fell right back down in the center of the ring once again, and all the progress she had made trying to escape the submission has gone to shit! Ximena is trying to wiggle her way over to the ropes, but Sierra isn’t letting it happen!!

Flannery McCoy: XIMENA VELASQUEZ IS GETTING CLOSER TO THE ROPES! XIMENA IS WITHIN ARM’S REACH OF THE ROPES, AS SHE IS ABLE TO GET A HOLD OF IT–

Stew-O: But Sierra let’s go of the hold before Ximena could even cause a ropebreak! The damage has been done as Ximena is favoring her arm…BUT LOOK! SIERRA IS RUNNING THE ROPES, AND SHE HANDSPRINGS OFF IT…’STUPID BITCH’!!!! THE HANDSPRING MOONSAULT CONNECTS!!!

Jake Mercer: NO!!! XIMENA IS ABLE TO QUICKLY MOVE OUT OF THE WAY, AND SHE QUICKLY GETS BACK UP TO HER FEET-

Flannery McCoy: ELECTRIC FEEL!!!! SIERRA QUICKLY RECOVERED AND CAUGHT XIMENA WITH THE ROLLING KOPPU KICK!!! XIMENA GOES DOWN, BUT SIERRA DOES AS WELL AND SHE CAN’T CAPITALIZE! Sierra can’t capitalize on the connection of the Electric Feel, and that might’ve cost her there! Sierra backs away as it can tell she’s favoring her right knee, as she might have hit it the wrong way when going for the handspring moonsault! Sierra gets up to her feet in the corner, as Ximena Velasquez is trying to stirr back up to her feet. Ximena Velasquez and Sierra know each other very well, and it is being showcased here as they are both back up to their feet, and we are right back at where we started!

Stew-O: And it seems like there’s going to be a clean reset as Sierra and Ximena goes for a lockup-…WAIT XIMENA JUST SLAPPED SIERRA RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE AND THAT DROPS SIERRA RIGHT DOWN TO A KNEE! XIMENA RUNS THE ROPES, BUT SIERRA GETS RIGHT BACK UP TO HER FEET AND CATCHES XIMENA WITH A SUPERKICK! Now it’s Sierra’s turn to run the ropes, but Ximena catches Sierra in her arms! Ximena catches Sierra in her arms…but Sierra is going around the body of Ximena, before meeting her in the front, as she goes for a tornado DDT, but Ximena holds her steady, throwing Sierra off her and..ELECTRIC FEEL AGAIN!!!

Jake Mercer: XIMENA MOVES OUT OF THE WAY, AND AS SIERRA GETS UP TO HER FEET, XIMENA CATCHES HER WITH A CHOP RIGHT TO THE CHEST! Sierra is staggering across the ring, caught off guard from that vicious chop, as she runs right into another chop by Ximena Velasquez, but she still stays up on her feet! BICYCLE KICK- no! Ximena blocks the attempted bicycle kick, and now she grabs Sierra, and she throws her right into a corner. Ximena now runs full speed ahead at Sierra, and catches her with a corner clothesline, as Sierra crumbles down!

Flannery McCoy: AS SIERRA WAS FALLING DOWN SHE GRABBED XIMENA AND PULLED HER DOWN WITH HER INTO A ROLLUP! SIERRA MAY HAVE THIS MATCH WON WITH THE ROLLUP!!

OOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TTTTTTTTTTT-

Stew-O: XIMENA VELASQUEZ GETS OUT OF IT, AS BOTH WOMEN GET BACK UP TO THEIR FEET….BUT SIERRA JUMPS RIGHT INTO THE ARMS OF XIMENA, AND XIMENA LOCKS IN THE BEARHUG! SIERRA HAS ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE TO GO, AND XIMENA IS JUST SQUEEZING THE LIFE OUT OF SIERRA! Sierra is trying to escape the bearhug, but to no avail as Ximena is holding it on tighter! Sierra is caught in between the arms and body of Ximena Velasquez, and it is only a matter of time before Sierra will have to give up or maybe even pass out!

Jake Mercer: You can see that Sierra is losing consciousness, as this Match might be coming to an end! Ximena might have gotten Sierra into a position that she can’t escape, and this may be the winning move Ximena needs to get three more points in this Tournament! Sierra is still fighting, but she is struggling to escape, and this may be it! Sierra may be passing out! Ximena is going to win this Match and there’s absolutely nothing that Sierra can do about it anymore! Sierra fought her hardest in this Match, but it wasn’t enough as she passes out, and the Referee calls for the bell-

Flannery McCoy: WAIT SIERRA IS STILL IN IT! SIERRA IS STILL AWAKE AND SHE’S FIGHTING! SHE FREES HER ARMS, AND SHE STARTS TO THROW PUNCHES AT XIMENA IN HOPES THAT SHE WILL BE ABLE TO ESCAPE THE HOLD, BUT XIMENA IS ONLY APPLYING MORE AND MORE PRESSURE..BUT IS SIERRA CLAWING AT THE NECK OF XIMENA? IT’S ALL LEGAL AND SIERRA IS DIGGING HER FINGERS INTO THE NECK OF XIMENA VELASQUEZ!

Jake Mercer: FREAK!

Stew-O: SIERRA IS DOING WHATEVER IS NECESSARY TO ESCAPE THIS BEARHUG, AND I THINK IT’S WORKING! XIMENA IS STARTING TO LOSE HER STANDING THE MORE SIERRA JUST CLAWS AT HER NECK! XIMENA LOSES HER BALANCES, AND SHE FALLS DOWN WHILE STILL HOLDING ONTO SIERRA…AND XIMENA LANDS RIGHT INTO THE KNEES OF SIERRA! SIERRA SEEMINGLY EXECUTED A GUTBUSTER VARIATION, BUT I THINK SHE GOT THE WORST OF IT IN THE PROCESS AS SIERRA IS OUT! SIERRA IS DOWN AND OUT, AND XIMENA IS AWAKE…AND SHE’S IN A PINNING POSITION! XIMENA MIGHT WIN HERE!

OOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRR—

Flannery McCoy: SIERRA GETS THE SHOULDER UP! Even after all of that, Sierra was still able to keep the Match alive, but I don’t think she’s going to be able to continue much longer, and Ximena certainly doesn’t look happy about the Match continuing! The Specialist Champion gets right back up to her feet, and she’s yelling for Sierra to get up! I think that Ximena Velasquez is ready to end this! Sierra starts to stagger up to her knees, but Ximena grabs a hold of her, getting her to her feet…and Ximena is going to finish this with ‘XV’!!!! THE ONE ARM POWERBOMB CONNECTS ON SIERRA!!!!

(Suddenly, Serenity Valdez can be seen running down the ramp…)

Jake Mercer: WHAT THE HELL IS SHE DOING HERE?!?! SERENITY JUMPS UP ONTO THE APRON, AND XIMENA NOTICES HER AS SHE DROPS SIERRA DOWN, BEFORE RUNNING AT SERENITY! SERENITY DROPS DOWN FROM THE APRON AND—-

Flannery McCoy: PRIMA DONNA!!!!!

Stew-O: SIERRA CATCHES XIMENA VELASQUEZ OFF GUARD WITH PRIMA DONNA OUT OF NOWHERE! THE SLICED BREAD #2 CONNECTS, AND XIMENA IS COMPLETELY OUT OF IT! SIERRA STAGGERS TO XIMENA, AND DROPS HER SHOULDER OVER HER!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Jake Mercer: SIERRA DID IT! SIERRA WINS WITH THE HELP OF SERENITY VALDEZ!

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER VIA PINFALL, GAINING TWO POINTS IN THE ICONIC CUP TOURNAMENT…SIERRA!!!!!!!!!

(‘Hey Superstar’ would begin to blast throughout the arena once again, as a very mixed reaction, with flooding boos from the interference of Serenity Valdez is given as Sierra gets back up to her feet. Surprised with the win, Sierra would get her arm raised by the Referee as she begins to celebrate the victory.)

Stew-O: Sierra was able to get the shocking win over Ximena Velasquez here tonight, but it wasn’t without help from Serenity Valdez! Ximena had Sierra right where she wanted her, but in the end the interference caused by Serenity who had revenge on her mind gave Sierra a moment of opportunity, and she seized it!

Flannery McCoy: But nonetheless, Sierra has gotten two more points in this Iconic Cup Tournament, and she halts the momentum of Ximena Velasquez! You would have to think, however, had Serenity not gotten involved if it was going to be the end of this Match for Sierra. But congratulations to Sierra!

(Sierra would continue to celebrate her victory in the middle of the ring, as the final shot is of a pissed-off Ximena Velasquez, Specialist Championship in her hand as she eyes down Serenity Valdez, and the Camera fades elsewhere.)

(A commercial is shown for MOREbius, the sequel to the hit-movie Morbius, featuring Limmy Monaghan.)

(Friday Night Dynasty comes back from commercial break as the sounds of ‘Trophies’ by Drake is heard blasting through the speakers of the arena. The camera goes over to show Joso taking a seat at ringside with a smirk on his face. From there, it goes over to show Stephie Love standing at the center of the ring with a smile on her face and a microphone in her hand ready to announce the next match!)

Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘Natural’ by Imagine Dragons then begins to blast through the speakers of the arena as the camera goes over to show Terry Chambers beginning to make his way out from the backstage area. He has a determined look on his face as he looks around at the EAW Universe, with some holding up signs challenging Terry to a match, before he then begins to make his way down the ramp and towards the ring from there.)

Stephie Love: Introducing first from Detroit, Michigan weighing in at 257 pounds he is “The Barbaric Carnivore” TERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRY CHAMBERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Well as you may be aware Terry Chambers has issued an open challenge for Pain for Pride. I am sure that while he is willing to face anyone he does have some standards so unfortunately, our neckbeard fans are out of luck.

Jake Mercer: These people look like they get shoved in lockers on a daily basis. I’m surprised they would challenge one of the toughest wrestlers on the roster. I guess fame is a powerful motivator.

Stew-O: Well Terry is facing Harley Lewis here tonight but who will he face at Pain for Pride? That is what we are all wondering.

(‘Sugar We’re Going Down’ by Fall Out Boy then begins to play up as Harley Lewis then begins to make his way out to the stage. He has a smirk on his face while he takes a spin around and whips off his sunglasses, throwing them into the crowd confidently before then beginning to make his way down the ramp. Along the way he announces an open challenge for all the ladies at ringside to go out with him after the show.)

Stephie Love: And his opponent from Manchester, United Kingdom weighing in at 185 pounds he is “The Heartthrob of EAW” HARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRLEY LEWISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: I humbly accept the open challenge.

Stew-O: Damn you are going to fight Terry?

Flannery McCoy: Wait! Not that one!

Jake Mercer: I wish my colleagues were more professional. Hopefully, they can control themselves long enough to call this match.

Stew-O: Well I’m sure Harley is more than ready to get through this match. He’s up against some tough competition and this is a huge opportunity for him tonight. If he gets the win, I can only imagine this would be a huge statement for him amidst a big match at Pain For Pride in the New Era Classic Final against Joso. Let’s see if this goes in his favor.

(DING! DING! DING!)

Flannery McCoy: Terry Chambers walks right up to Harley Lewis and punches the shit out of him knocking Harley flat on his ass. Chambers ruthlessly wrenches on the arm of Lewis twisting him like a pretzel as he applies some strange-looking hold on the mat. Chambers trying to choke the hell out of Harley immediately as this match starts and Joso is laughing on the outside screaming for Harley to tap out. He thinks it would be hilarious if Harley lost the match with one move. But Harley is struggling! Harley is fighting back and back up to his feet as he breaks the hold!

Stew-O: But a hard knee to the gut of Harley Lewis from Terry Chambers. Chambers whips Harley off the ropes. Looking for a back body drop! But Harley kicks Chambers hard right in the head as he tries to bend over. Damn that kick was full force. Nearly knocked Terry right over. Harley comes charging back with a Running Dropkick kicking Terry who goes flying over the top rope and tumbling to the outside! Terry crashes and burns on the outside nearly breaking everything at ringside with the impact of his collision to the ground. Terry feeling the negative aspects of gravity out here this week.

Jake Mercer: Terry Chambers slaps the mat outside the ring in rage as Harley Lewis got the better of him. Joso is there and he is rooting for Terry to get back into the ring as Chambers can’t allow Harley to embarrass himself like this. But Chambers is obviously not giving up as he calms himself down and returns to the ring. But Harley grabs the hair of Chambers as he climbs back into the ring. Only for Chambers to connect with a Throat Punch to knock Harley back and allow himself to get back into the ring on his own accord. Chambers pulls Harley between the ropes and begins to use the ropes to trap him and bash him repeatedly across the chest with his massive arm. Terry really giving this man Harley a true beating tonight!

Flannery McCoy: But Harley Lewis breaks free! Harley falls to the ground with a leg sweep to Terry Chambers knocking him off the apron as he collapses to the outside once again! Terry nearly landed on top of Joso! Get out the way Joso! But luckily Joso saw it and moved so that Terry missed him. Joso himself would not have missed if he was the one falling out of the ring, however. Chambers slowly gets back up resting on his arms on the apron trying to pull himself back into the ring. But Harley slithers out to the apron… and connects with a Running Knee Strike to the face sending Terry staggering back!! Harley leaps off the apron with an Asai Moonsault!!!-

Stew-O: No! Terrence Chambers moves out of the way!!! But Harley Lewis with incredible athleticism flips and lands on his feet behind Chambers! Chambers with a Running Big Boot kicking Harley right at us at the announce table! But Harley catches the leg just in time! But Chambers grabs the head of Harley and sends him flying right into the steel steps! Harley just got wrecked! Harley is in severe pain outside the ring now as Chambers stalks him and throws him back into the ring getting him into a Dragon Sleeper Hold. Chambers has Harley trapped and he is trying to break free by twisting around. He does! Now they are exchanging fists left and right! TERRY! HARLEY! TERRY! HARLEY! TERRY! HARLEY! HARLEY! HARLEY!

Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis gaining momentum as he rocks Terry Chambers back with some punches. Harley runs the ropes attacking Chambers… but Chambers catches him twisting him around into a Tilt-A-Whirl Slam! God damn that force! Terry is massively powerful! Terry with the cover!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joso: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: No! Harley Lewis kicks out!!! Terry Chambers with a smile on his face he’s not phased at all as he picks Harley back up and immediately transitions into a Bearhug. If Harley won’t give up then Chambers will squeeze the life out of him! But Harley desperately breaks free with a series of headbutts and then throws Chambers shoulder first into the corner! Harley now going up top as he comes off the top with a Flying Elbow Smash landing atop Chambers!!! Harley with the cover!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: The kick out! Terry Chambers grabs onto Harley Lewis as he kicks out and deadlifts him up to his feet! Chambers has Harley on his back before he leaps backward with a modified Samoan Drop crushing Harley beneath him! Harley is deceased but Terry not going for the cover just yet despite Joso’s demands that he does so. Terry pulls Harley back up-

Jake Mercer: Harley Lewis immediately with a Spinning Axe Handle to the face of Terry Chamber dropping him real quick! I guess Terry should have gone for the pin there when he had the chance to! Harley is off the ropes… Running Dropkick to the face catches Terry right on the noggin’. Terry pulls himself up in the corner and eats repeated kicks to the face from Harley who is going in real quick. Harley lifts up Terry… but he can’t quite get him up! Terry throws Harley shoulder first into the turnbuckle before dragging him out and connecting with a Pumphandle Slam driving him into the mat. The cover!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: But Terry Chambers is left enraged that the match did not end there! Harley Lewis with the kick out!

Joso: (Off-Mic) Nah.

Stew-O: Terry Chambers now hammering away with clubbing blows to the face of Harley Lewis leaving him bloodied and bruised in the ring. Terry palms the face of Harley yanking him back up and pulling him in… THE T-5!!!!

Jake Mercer: TERRY CHAMBERS CONNECTS WITH THE T-5!!! THE COVER!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stephie Love: Here is your winner… TERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYY CHAMBERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(‘Natural is then heard blasting through the speakers of the arena while Terry Chambers immediately begins to get back up to his feet. The referee makes his way over and raises Terry’s hands in the air, as he begins his celebration inside of the ring. Meanwhile, Joso is seen standing up from his chair and looking at Harley, laughing hilariously at this.)

Joso: LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! :mjlol: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Joso is shown rolling on the ground laughing and pointing at the defeated Harley Lewis.

Joso: ROFLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL OMG U LOST HOLY SHIT :dead:

Flannery McCoy: Oh come on. That is not necessary. That is totally uncalled for.

Jake Mercer: I think it is a totally normal reaction. He’s living his best life.

Stew-O: I guess Joso is happy that Harley lost. And he is-

(Terry Chambers is then seen rolling out of the ring and making his way over to the timekeeper’s area, snatching a microphone from someone before turning around and rolling into the ring. He makes a gesture to cut his music while ‘Natural’ then begins to come to a close. From there, Terry clears his throat and begins to speak.)

Terry Chambers: Tonight I made a statement, beating Harley Lewis at the center of the ring exactly like I said I would. But of course, I’m not satisfied in the slightest. If you remember, last week at Battle of Egypt I put out a challenge to whoever had the balls to step up to me at Pain For Pride XV, and I am still waiting. I expected someone to take notice and step up to the plate, but clearly, I was proven wrong. So I hope this match proved that I am not playing games in the slightest. I am here and I am looking to get another Pain For Pride moment against the very best, from Dynasty, Showdown, or Voltage, I honestly do not give a damn in the slightest. So I’m here to say that the clock is ticking, and I am patiently waiting for whoever thinks they have what it takes. But choose your words carefully, or else you’ll end up like Harley here and see exactly what I’m made of.

(Terry then drops his microphone down to the ground while ‘Natural’ then begins to play up once again. He rolls out of the ring and begins to make his way up the ramp from there.)

Stew-O: Bold words from Terry Chambers!!! Who the hell will accept his challenge? Is there anyone who could possibly defeat this man?!?!?

Jake Mercer: Ah yessir, this is where big Jake steps in, I can handle this.

Flannery McCoy: Alright man, good luck.

Jake Mercer: YEAH!

(Jake stands up but Flannery grabs him and pulls him back down. The last shot seen is Terry disappearing through the backstage area while Friday Night Dynasty from there begins to fade to elsewhere.)

(Friday Night Dynasty continues with the scene heading to the backstage area, with the camera coming upon the interview space where Michael Belfort is the first person with whom viewers are met with the sight of. With a microphone in hand and a welcoming smile on his face, Michael raises his microphone to address Dynasty fans as to what was coming up next.)

Michael Belfort: Friday Night Dynasty continues to roll along and you’ll all be happy to know that for as exciting as things have already been, there’s even more to come! Between what’s left to be addressed from Battle of Egypt III: Alexandria Falls and what’s still on for tonight, Pain for Pride is still shaping up into a must-see event that no one is going to want to miss. But for my next guest, the path to the biggest show of the year still appears to seem somewhat unclear as she considers her own next steps on where she’ll find herself at Pain for Pride. Empress of Elite, Dr. Bethany Blue!

(Entering into the scene is Bethany Blue, dressed in ring gear for her match that will take place later on in the night, and she takes a spot beside Michael with her hands on her hips as she anticipates the interview continuing on.)

Michael Belfort: Bethany, with Grand Rampage and Battle of Egypt both having come to finally pass, what the topic of conversation becomes when it pertains to you is where do things appear to be headed for you now? It appears that IDOL-GUN is officially behind you now, as is Caroline, and the Ladder Match that took place to determine a number one contender to the Universal Women’s Championship in a Pain for Pride match has left it as Kassidy Heart competing for the Championship against Andrea Valentine. Where’s your mind at in all of this, as you watch all these big decisions and major pieces get made or come together while you seem to be watching it all play out?

(Bethany for a moment can only shake her head; the situation she now finds herself in something she hadn’t anticipated, nor does she appreciate it as she’s come to let everyone know.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: Where’s my mind at? I think you should be asking StarrStan that very same question, because it seems like he made a decision without even consulting me as the woman with the opportunity to choose my moment whenever I want to become the Universal Women’s Champion. Just blatant disregard for the Empress of Elite – the first Empress of Elite in a number of years, mind you – and I get met with no consideration despite how monumental it was for such an accolade to return back to the women’s division after all this time. But where my mind is at – I’ve only been doing what I’ve always done, Michael, and that’s knowing I’m going to continue to put in a level of work others can’t say for themselves, no matter what. That can’t be denied, it’s not up for debate, and what I’ve kept myself aware of as all of this is going on is that as the reigning Empress of Elite, I ultimately control my own destiny. That’s been the one comfort in all of this, I suppose, that it comes back to me and what I choose to do. After all, a clause like that means I could add myself to any Pain for Pride main event match of my choosing.

(Michael can’t help but wear an expectant expression as a smirk comes across the Doctor’s face, but the moment of teasing comes to a stop as she starts back up again.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: But I’m also still just taking things a day at a time and really considering what my options are. I know I’ve made it known that I have an interest in the Universal Women’s Championship and winning it one day, and that day will come – but this is just as much a reminder to everyone that I’m capable of changing any playing field in a Pain for Pride match with just a single announcement on my part. But like I said, I’m taking my time and considering what my options are. It’s my decision, a choice that I get to make and no one else – it’s also a luxury one just doesn’t throw around without some more deliberation. Without any deadweight distracting me from getting to look at what’s all on the table, I can focus on what’s really important: focusing on me and becoming a World Champion. I’ve been caught up in other things – some that I wouldn’t have been a part of had I just remained focused on myself like I realize I should have the entire time, and now I can really get a grasp on what’s played out.

Michael Belfort: I’d say that’s fair enough, but even then, as it stands right now you aren’t directly looking at anything at the upcoming Pain for Pride event. For someone like you and everything that you have accomplished, that’s surely got to be something that has you wondering where you’ll end up.

Dr. Bethany Blue: Anyone who thinks that Bethany Blue won’t be at Pain for Pride should put a stop to those thoughts right now, immediately. There’s no way that I would miss out on such a thing and to even assume I wouldn’t have some kind of match to showcase myself in like I should be, is one of the absurd things I’ve heard since all the messages I’ve seen on social media about how I did away with Caroline so that I could get back to prioritizing my success. It should go without saying that I have a winner’s mindset, Michael, one that has pushed me to come this far and achieve what I have so that I could prove myself – and Pain for Pride is another stage for me where I can only continue to solidify the name that is Dr. Bethany Blue in the history of this sport as one of the greatest. Of course I’m going to find my way to Pain for Pride someway, somehow. The path to Pain for Pride may not be as obvious for me as it is for some others as of this moment, but one way or another, I’m going to undoubtedly be there and I’ll be making a statement that won’t be ignored.

(The idea of being left out of such a historic event is something that clearly doesn’t sit well with Bethany and the look in her eyes as she speaks to Michael on the subject shows that she’s a woman with purpose. She isn’t someone who is going to let something like having a match at Pain for Pride be something that she misses out on.)

Dr. Bethany Blue: If there was any doubt though about how serious I am and what I’m willing to do to make that statement, then that just means people haven’t paid proper attention to what I’m all about. Maybe it was the #EAW15 hysteria that had everyone’s attention all over the place with all these returning faces getting spotlight and shine, or the IDOL-GUN drama, but all it takes is a look at my match tonight for everyone to remember that I’m certainly not to be overlooked. I’ll be facing off against Andre Walker, the currently reigning King of Elite who’s set to face off against The Visual Prophet at Pain for Pride, and it’s another perfect opportunity for me to assert myself as the undeniable talent that I am. The way I see it, this a match to prove not only who gets the claim to being the superior royalty but just as much who the real marquee talent on the roster is – and I’ve got no issue doing what it’s going to take for me to prove that those claims will belong to me. I have the task of showing that the Empress of Elite crown is worthy of being seen in the same light, that I’m worth all of the same consideration that Andre gets when it seems that all of his hype seems like it’s looming over this match-up between us.

Dr. Bethany Blue: Andre has been remarkable and I won’t take that away from him, I have no problem saying out loud when someone like him has taken hold of the reins the way that he has – but I’m also not just around to be a background character. I was voted Next Up in 2022 and I have every intention to show why it didn’t just stop with winning Empress of Elite, and I’m going to continue to build up momentum with a victory like this that’ll only say to everyone that I should very much be on their radar whether they know it already or not. When it’s all said and done, when we go to war and the smoke clears, the EAW Universe and all the rosters will know that I’ll have ended up stealing all of Andre Walker’s thunder here tonight. ….And, hey, who knows, maybe I’ll even decide that I should go and steal his Pain for Pride moment, too.

(Michael understandably looks caught off guard by the implication but before he can even get his next question out, Bethany playfully shrugs and turns on her heel with a wink to exit from the scene. Michael watches on, surprise still on his face, before the scene fades out.)

(‘KARATE’ by BABYMETAL plays throughout the speakers of the Safaricom Indoor Arena in Nairobi, Kenya. The crowd is wild for one of EAW’s returning rising stars, and she receives mixed reactions, which she pays no mind to. Some people cheer for her, but we hear a lot of boos as she makes her way through the curtains in the entrance path. She poses with a black hoodie, stretching to get prepared as she takes her hood off with force. Nariko calmly walks down the ramp and proceeds to the top rope, before jumping and taking her jacket off.)

Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, from Fukuoka, Japan— weighing in at 103 pounds, she is the BBBLLLLLAAAAACCCKKKK SWAAAAAAAN, NAAAAAARRRRRIIIIKKKKOOOO!

Jake Mercer: Who is she again? Joso is going to mop the floor with her. You don’t go silent in a match like this, and she did exactly that. Maybe she’s prepared, maybe she isn’t, but my heart is leaning with the latter. I know her opponent is prepared and ready, so she has to show something promising here, because I honestly just don’t see it.

Flannery McCoy: As much as you’re a dick, I agree. This company is about talking the talk and walking the walk, and she hasn’t been doing the former. I also hope we see something fruitful come out of her match tonight, because it’s not looking too good.

Stew-O: Well, I guess we just have to wait and see what she has in mind as the match goes on! In the meantime, let’s just give her the benefit of the doubt.

(As ‘KARATE’ fades out, it is immediately replaced with ‘Trophies’ by Drake. The crowd goes wild this time, as Joso is immediately met with cheers from the fans. Signs are lifted with Joso’s name on it, as he begins lifting his shades to check it all out. A confident smile compliments his features, but it turns into two focused eyes staring down Nariko. He walks down the ramp and jumps up on the apron before doing a cutthroat expression aiming to intimidate the smaller competitor. As he enters the ring, he waits for the bell to cue the start of the match.)

Stephie Love: And her opponent, from Bronx, New York, weighing in at 206 pounds— he is the GOOOOOOLLLLLDDDEEEEEN ACCCCCEEEEE, JOOOOOOSSSOOOOOO!

Jake Mercer: See what I’m talking about? This kid is prepared from top to bottom, and he’s given Nariko some very strong words, and is looking to show his Pain for Pride opponent that he’s just not scared! Earlier in the night, Harley lost his match against Terry, and now Joso is coming in looking to show him that he is better than him. Nariko is in deep waters right now, and Joso’s looking like he wants to make her sink!

Flannery McCoy: I’d find another way to put it, but that’s exactly how I feel about this match! Joso has a lot on the line, and if he loses, it’s not going to be exactly fruitful for his momentum going into Las Vegas.

Stew-O: Am I in another universe? It seems like you two are finally agreeing on something, that’s new. Both competitors look set and ready for the match to start, and Joso cracks his neck a few times, fury in his eyes as he stares Nariko down!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: So we are off- wait, what the hell? Joso is just coming to Nariko with no hesitation! He’s unloading blows and shots while she’s still in the corner! This isn’t good for Nariko at all, because Joso seems to be attempting to send a message to his Pain for Pride opponent, and he’s going to use Nariko as the paper to write it on! Joso is just stomping on her in the corner, and he’s pressing his boot up against her head, goddamn.

Jake Mercer: Yep, he don’t miss. He’s the GOAT. He’s Joso, super talented, best man and he will win at Pain for Pride. I love Joso, he really doesn’t miss-

Flannery McCoy: Jake, fuck off. There’s a match here and I need you to focus, got it? Anyways, it seems like Nariko doesn’t have any ounce of fight left in her! Joso is just squeezing it all out, and he’s doing that with this utter display of brutality, goddamn. He’s pulling her to a standing position, before whipping her into the opposite turnbuckle, running full steam ahead for a European uppercut! Oh, my lord.

Jake Mercer: Damn, Flan. Anyways, it doesn’t seem like Joso is stopping here! He wants to make an example out of the young star, and this theory is being reinforced as he spins her slightly, back facing Joso as he drops down, and pulls her up for a Deadlift German Suplex! Jesus, this kid has some strength in him.

Stew-O: It looks like it’s another day in the office for Joso, and he just casually kips up off the ground, while Nariko is holding her back in pain! Whatever statement he wanted to make, he might’ve made it right here on Dynasty. Nariko is using the ropes as leverage to pick herself up, and Joso allows her to. Whatever plan he had is going along in motion, much to the expense of Nariko!

Flannery McCoy: Nariko finally catches some fresh air, but Joso moves in on his prey like a predator with no remorse and no mercy. As the Black Swan tries to pick herself up, Joso strikes her down with a kick to the stomach! He wraps her arm barely over his shoulder, picking her up in a suplex position for the Executioner From Hell! What a strength display by the Golden Ace of EAW! Doesn’t seem like Nariko has anymore left in the tank, unfortunately. Joso can end it right here, but he’s looking like he wants to keep this going a little while longer! He’s not finished with Nariko, but come on, is it really necessary?

Jake Mercer: Necessary to what? Necessary to make a statement out of his opponents? Absolutely, he’s Joso, for Christ’s sake. He’s the Golden Ace, the man who doesn’t miss, the greatest rookie EAW has to offer right now! Give him his respect, Flannery. Give him his respect, now!

Stew-O: Jake, he doesn’t bother to talk to you backstage. I doubt he even knows who you actually are, so relax and focus on commentating this match. Speaking of the match, Joso picks her up by the chin, but Nariko is landing some strikes of her own! She’s going for body shots, and she shoves Joso back! Maybe it’s time for her to get some momentum, huh? She rebounds off the ropes, looking to go for a jumping elbow smash!

Jake Mercer: But it doesn’t connect! Joso barely steps back, and Nariko lands face first on the hard canvas! Joso’s just stomping on her now, trying to make her pay for that foolish move! Whatever strikes she landed doesn’t seem to have that much of an effect on Joso, as he’s just pummeling her with stomps and kicks to the ribs! I want him to do more! Violence is good! My violent brain like!

Flannery McCoy: Jesus, Jake. Maybe you won’t get the ‘violence’ you want after all, eh? Take a look, Joso is going to literally end it right here! He lifts her up in an Argentine Backbreaker position, and flips her over for the GRATEFUL DEATH! The Argentine Backbreaker with a Knee Lift just took Nariko out, laying her right on the fucking canvas! Joso doesn’t even bother with putting that much effort into his pin, as he just places his foot on her, going for the cover!

Referee: OOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEE!

Referee: TWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Referee: THHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(‘Trophies’ by Drake plays throughout the speakers of the Safaricom Indoor Arena, as the crowd cheers him with no hesitation. He widens his arms and basks in the glory, jumping up on the top turnbuckle to get the highest vantage point. Joso begins pointing at everyone in the audience, a confident smile forming on his face as he did so. Ever so casually, he jumps down and exits the ring, heading down the entrance ramp with no fatigue to his system whatsoever.)

Stew-O: That just happened. That actually just happened right before our very eyes, damn. Nariko just got thrown around, kicked and beaten like a ragdoll, and Joso is looking stronger than ever. Going into Pain for Pride, I’m sure he’s one to look out for in the coming weeks. Super excited to see what this kid has in store for him.

(The camera cuts to a commercial for In-Ring News. The only dirt sheet that promises to get you news not just from ringside but by jumping into the ring during matches themselves.)

(The scene opens back up with the camera aimed at the entrance ramp and the stage. “Party Goin Dumb” by Rico Nasty plays. Lights flash and anticipation builds as out walks Astrea Jordan as the entire Safaricom Indoor Arena crowd goes wild. Jordan is wearing a crop top with the words “Astraea Still Better” in pink lettering, a pair of denim jeans, and high heel boots as she walks down the ramp nodding to her theme.)

Stew-O: Though she ended up on the losing end at Battle of Egypt III, Astraea Jordan continues to prove why anyone that doubted her return to Elite Answers Wrestling competition should change their tone when describing her. She held her own in a match that was won by Kassidy Heart and Astraea definitely was still an impactful competitor in that bout.

Flannery McCoy: Indeed but it comes as no surprise to me and many others that her makeshift alliance with Sheridan Müller could not last given the circumstances. Both women had their eyes on the prize and of course one would eventually try to gain an edge in the other.

Jake Mercer: I can’t blame Sheridan one bit. Who can truly blame her? It was a free for all Ladder match with a shot at Andrea Valentine’s Universal Women’s Champion on the line. It was every woman for themselves with a ticket to one of the biggest matches of the year on the show of the year; PAIN FOR PRIDE!

Stew-O: The intensity of the situation has forced you to yell but let’s temper that excitement a bit, Jake.

Jake Mercer: Wym

Flannery McCoy: That was Stew’s polite way of saying shut the fuck up.

Jake Mercer: Oh. :dougieb:

(Astraea enters the ring and is handed a microphone as her music dies down.)

Astrea Jordan: Ladies and gentlemen, I stand before you one pissed off woman. I am fuming and I am beyond upset. I am livid. I am mad and I only really have myself to blame. I simply cannot believe that I allowed myself to ever trust Sheridan Muller in the first place. That’s on me. I cannot believe I allowed myself to be hoodwinked by Sheridan. That’s my bad. I can’t believe I allowed myself to be bamboozled by Sheridan. That’s the mistake I made. I admitd that I was led astray by Sheridan Muller and I admit now after the fact that trusting Sher and believing she could change was misguided and foolish. I trusted her and thought that Sher truly changed from all those years ago but it’s safe to say shes the same conniving untrustworthy snake she’s always been. I empathized with Sheridan’s situation. I saw what she was going through being on the outside looking in and having to come back to EAW and this new era of EAW and just how challenging that truly was. I saw how the numbers game was not in Sheridan’s favor or my own favor going into the ladder match at Battle of Egypt III. I weighed my options and thought about it. I had my doubts about her and this alliance ending in this exact way but I trusted Sheridan because I was very much in tune with what she was feeling. That’s what prompted me to accept her extended olive branch.

(Astrea Jordan paces around the ring as she pauses for a beat. Astrea turns her head up and looks into the camera.)

Astraea Jordan: The truth is I should have trusted not her but myself. The truth is I should have never stuck by Sheridan and instead stuck by my own beliefs. I should have listened to my own instincts and paid more attention to who that broad Sheridan Muller is and always has been. I should’ve stuck to my guns and let all of those cac bitches turn on one another and fuck shit up for themselves. That’s a life lesson though. Minor setback for a major comeback. You live and you learn and as you can see I’m still living and evidently still learning. I decided that what’s next on Astraea Jordan’s agenda is getting revenge on Sheridan for what she did and that’s why I’m out here right now. So, why don’t you do me a favor Sheridan…bring your pasty ass out here right now before I stomp from here to that toilet bowl you’re currently drinking from and drag you out here myself.

(A pause happens as Astraea stands stern and focused inside the ring. She folds her arms and waits until “Amerika” by Rammstein blasts out the speakers. Out steps Sheridan Muller laughing hysterically at Astraea.)

Stew-O: The Flamestress set her temporary alliance with Astraea Jordan on fire at the Battle of Egypt and it looks like she’s coming out to stoke those flames even more.

Jake Mercer: Please, Stewart! I have on good authority that “THE MADAM OF MÜNSTER” is here to make amends and offer a second olive branch to Astraea. Think of how good both women will be after they overcome this grossly overblown misunderstanding.

Flannery McCoy: I think you are too stupid to understand that Sheridan isn’t laughing in a playful manner as she walks to the ring. Sheridan is mocking Astraea Jordan and Astraea looks fairly annoyed at Müller’s jovial spirit.

Jake Mercer: Nothing wrong with a good laugh. I laugh everytime I check my stock portfolio and realize I’ll be stuck here at a commentary desk with two passive aggressive co-hosts who both wish I was replaced by Eric Havoc or something.

Flannery McCoy: Listen, Jake. I may think you are annoying or persistently ignorant and also borderline mentally slow but even I know that the day EAW brings back Eric Havoc and plops him in that chair you occupy is the day I get butt naked and walk out the door without a remnant of EAW anything on me.

Jake Mercer: Gavin Kirkland is somewhere getting his lotion.gif on.

(Sheridan enters the ring and receives a microphone.)

Sheridan Müller: He-he-he. You are one funny, naive, confused little brat aren’t you? If you’re wondering why I’m laughing it’s because it’s comical to me that you are so appalled at what I did. It’s hilarious to me that you are so shocked at what happened. Newsflash, Wafflehouse Barbie…EVERY WOMAN IN THAT MATCH WAS IN THAT MATCH FOR THEMSELVES! It was every single woman for themselves because it was a LADDER MATCH WITH A SHOT AT THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE WINNER! It wasn’t a tag team match, was it? I’m pretty sure we couldn’t both climb the ladder and share that opportunity could we? Even if we could, I’m 1000% sure even a slow, dimwitted girl like you would have eventually done to me what I did to you. Look, Astraea…I was ALWAYS bound to eventually doing what I felt was necessary to win that match for myself. Deep down, if you have any sort of intelligence or competitive drive, you probably would have done the same thing to me right? I think it’s just funny because the reason why you’re REALLY mad and upset is because I beat you to the punch.

Astraea Jordan: You beat me to the punch, huh?

Sheridan Müller: Precisely. You can mutter on and on about what I was before my return or who I am now but the bottom line is I have been and always will be more driven than you. I have been and always will be smarter than you. I have been and always will be more cunning and efficient than you. 100% pure German PERFECTION! I put my mind to a goal and I work endlessly until it’s achieved and you just can’t compare to that in any way.

Astraea Jordan: Is that right?

Sheridan Müller: Absolutely right.

Astraea Jordan: Well, unless your goal was to solely fuck me over that’s fine. But, you said it yourself…the goal was to win that ladder match at the Battle of Egypt, right? The goal was to earn that Universal Women’s Championship match, correct? The goal was to take on Andrea Valentine at Pain for Pride and leave with the belt, yes? Looks like you didn’t achieve the main objective did you? Stupid, German, musty broad!

Sheridan Müller: Who do you think you’re talking to like that?

Astraea Jordan: You, you moon faced Muskrat pussy having clown.

Sheridan Müller: You really are just a discount Serena Ben-

Stew-O: HUGE SLAP BY ASTRAEA TO THE FACE OF SHERIDAN MÜLLER! SHERIDAN’S HEAD TURNS SIDEWAYS AS SHE CLUTCHES HER CHEEK!

Jake Mercer: Astraea Jordan is yelling and screaming as she gives Sheridan the Riot Act as-

Flannery McCoy: POKE TO THE EYES! SHERIDAN Müller takes her index and middle fingers and JAMS them in Astraea’s eyes! Astraea is blinded! Jordan covers her eyes with her bare hands as Sheridan KICKS her in the midsection!

Stew-O: Clubbing blow after clubbing blow rains down onto Astraea Jordan as Sheridan is laying it thick onto Jordan.

Jake Mercer: That ain’t the only thing thick in the ring right now if you know what I mean!

Flannery McCoy: Sher pounds Astraea down with a heavy forearm and elbows as Jordan drops to one knee. Sheridan pulls Astraea Jordan up by the hair as-

Stew-O: BIG UPPERCUT BY ASTRAEA JORDAN ROCKS SHERIDAN! SHER STUMBLES BACK AS ASTRAEA DELIVERS ANOTHER VICIOUS BLOW! SHERIDAN TAKES THE PUNCH AND FOLLOWS WITH HER OWN FIST TO JORDAN’S JAW! LEFT HOOK FROM ASTRAEA, RIGHT JAB BY SHER, RIGHT KICK BY JORDAN, AND NEXT A BACK ELBOW BY SHER! PUNCH AFTER PUNCH IS THROWN! KICKS ARE IN THE MIX AS THESE TWO WOMEN ARE FIGHTING THE HOLY HELL OUT OF ONE ANOTHER!

Jake Mercer: SHER GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE! NO! JORDAN DOES A BACKWARDS MATRIX LIKE LEAN TO AVOID IT! SHER TURNS AND SPEAR! SPEAR BY ASTRAEA JORDAN DROPS SHERIDAN MÜLLER WHERE SHE WAS STANDING! ASTRAEA POPS UP AND IS FUMING AS SHE STAIRS AT THE CROWD! SHER IS CLUTCHING HER MIDSECTION!

Flannery McCoy: Sheridan is being dragged back to her feet by Astraea as-

Stew-O: POKE TO THE EYES! ANOTHER POKE TO THE EYES BY SHER BLINDS ASTRAEA ONCE AGAIN! Sher crawls and rolls away from Jordan and proceeds to slip out of the ring immediately. The audience here is not amused and are booing her tremendously for her actions!

Flannery McCoy: It was a pretty cowardly move to these folks and likely anyone watching.

Jake Mercer: Not to me. It was a smart tactic. Astraea literally couldn’t see Sher turning on her at the Battle of Egypt and now she probably can’t see much of shit with Sher poking her in the eyes twice in a three minute span!

Flannery McCoy: Astraea is shaking her eyes back into focus as Sher is stumbling up the ring ramp clutching her ribs after that violent spear Jordan did to her. Might have a broken rib or two after that ferocious maneuver.

Stew-O: Maybe but Astraea may need to see an optometrist to ensure her vision isn’t too impaired. Regardless, I doubt this scrum will be the last we see of these two women as rivals here on Friday Night Dynasty!

(The scene ends with Astraea squinting her irritated, red eyes onto Sher who is holding her ribs and backstepping up the entrance ramp.)

(A commercial is shown for Burger King starring Jake Smith and Andre Walker.)

(Friday Night Dynasty comes back from commercial break as it goes over to show Stephie Love standing at the center of the ring with a smile on her face and a microphone in her hand ready to announce the next match!)

Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

Stephie Love: And is a Cash in the Vault Qualifying Match!!!

Crowd: :blessed:!!!

(‘Walk’ by Avenged Sevenfold begins to blast through the speakers of the arena as the camera goes over to show Bryant Coffey making his way out to the stage. He looks ruthless and ready to kick ass as he wastes zero time beginning to make his way down the ramp and towards the ring.)

Stephie Love: Introducing first from San Jose, California weighing in at 202 pounds he is “The Fighting Machine” BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYANTTTTTTTTTTTT COFFFFFFFFFFFEYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Bryant Coffey is all business this week as he looks to qualify for Cash in the Vault. He just had his first singles match back on Dynasty two weeks ago, and now he’s looking to rebound in the best way possible and that’s by securing a spot at Pain For Pride.

Stew-O: That briefcase makes careers and makes Hall of Fame careers at that. Possibly one of the most important matches of Bryant’s career right here tonight.

Jake Mercer: No doubt. But if he wins this match that honor will soon be replaced. You can’t be satisfied with just qualifying. You have to win the whole damn thing!!

(‘Last Strike’ by Polo G begins to play up as Jon Kelton makes his way out from the backstage area. He has a scowl on his face, clearly displeased, before then beginning to make his way down the ramp and towards the ring from there, clearly unhappy but nonetheless still determined.)

Stephie Love: And his opponent from Dallas, Texas weighing in at 208 pounds he is “The Chosen One” JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEON KELTONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: Here comes Jon Kelton, and even I can admit, that him without the New Breed Championship just seems wrong somehow. But tonight he finds himself with an opportunity to replace that sooner rather than later.

Stew-O: Winning Cash in the Vault is a sure way to get you some gold, we’ve seen that multiple times in the past. So if he wants another title, he is going to have to win here tonight. We know Kelton has what it takes, but will his dreams come to fruition?

Jake Mercer: That means he will be going all out here I suspect.

Flannery McCoy: No shit.

Jake Mercer: You don’t need to be mean. :mjcry:

(DING! DING! DING!)

Flannery McCoy: We are underway as Jon Kelton and Bryant Coffey circle around the ring in preparation of locking up. They eventually do lock up with Kelton overpowering Coffey and shoving him hard back into the corner back first. Kelton with a huge haymaker to the face of Coffey who ducks out of the way. Kelton hammering in on Coffey going right for the face but Coffey managing to swerve and duck despite being in the corner. Coffey eventually manages to duck a punch and charge beneath the arm of Kelton and escape the corner. But Kelton assaults Coffey from behind with a Running Forearm to the back of the neck sending Coffey face first right into the adjacent turnbuckle.

Stew-O: Bryant Coffey turns himself around and eats a hard uppercut to the face from Jon Kelton. Kelton freed of his championship clearly looking to dominate and kick ass here tonight. He is looking to make a statement as he unloads his frustrations upon Coffey in the corner with repeated shots to the gut that even Coffey can’t find a way to avoid. Eventually Coffey has had enough falling on his ass in the corner as Kelton refuses to relent. Kelton now kicking at the fallen Coffey with immense speed. Kelton stomping a mudhole into Coffey not letting up as he hammers him with his boot in the bottom of the corner. Coffey really taking a beating now as he falls into the fetal position on the ground while continuing to eat stomps and kicks from Kelton.

Jake Mercer: Jon Kelton yanks Bryant Coffey up to his feet by the arm and whips him across the ring. Coffey returns off the ropes and eats a Spinning Back Fist right to the face from Kelton! Kelton is dominant in the early goings of this match as Bryant has been left dazed and confused in the ring wondering what the hell just hit him. The answer of course being Kelton. Kelton pulls Coffey back up and hammers him with another uppercut! But this time Coffey somehow manages to stay on his feet! He staggers back as Kelton runs off the ropes… Kelton with a big charging Lariat!!!-

Flannery McCoy: But Bryant Coffey takes to the skies and leapfrogs over the top of Jon Kelton! Kelton is out of control as he rebounds off the opposite side of the ring coming off the ropes and eats a Standing Dropkick to the chest taking him down to the mat for the first time! Kelton pulls himself up to his knees as Coffey stalks him from behind and connects with several well placed shots to the face. Kelton falls back into the turnbuckle as he manages to stand back up but Coffey traps him and aggressively begins to chop the shit out of his opponent’s chest. Coffey lighting him up before taking Kelton down with a Snapmare into the middle of the ring and a hard kick to the back for good measure.

Stew-O: Bryant Coffey yanks on the hair of Jon Kelton pulling him back up in a painful manner. Coffey grabs the arm of Kelton wrenching it around as Kelton powers back up to his feet. Kelton breaks free with a hard shot to the gut which staggers Coffey. And a hard Axe Handle to the back of the neck takes him back down flat on his face. Kelton shakes off the pain that has been inflicted from Coffey’s brief comeback but quickly gets back on the assault. Coffey tries to pull himself up on the ropes only to eat a hard shot to the face from Kelton!

Jake Mercer: No! Bryant Coffey dodges it and begins throwing hard right and left hooks to the face of Jon Kelton! Kelton staggering back as he is being rocked here from Coffey’s attempt at regaining control of this match! Kelton staggers into the ropes before Coffey begins chopping away at his chest sending Kelton into the corner. Now the hard Shoulder Thrusts to the gut from Coffey as he tries to demolish the midsection of Kelton. Kelton gets a boot up to kick Coffey away from him in the corner but Coffey charges in… Coffey leaps around Kelton and rolls him up from behind with a School Boy pinning combination!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: The kickout from Jon Kelton! Bryant Coffey nearly stealing this one right then and there! Kelton immediately back up and connects with a Roundhouse Kick to the face of Coffey! No! Coffey grabs Kelton pulling him in with a Package Suplex tossing Kelton back first into the turnbuckle! Kelton sprawled out on the mat yelling in pain as Coffey leaps up to the top rope and comes off the top with a Double Foot Stomp right in the belly of Kelton who nearly vomits from the impact! Coffey falls into the cover and he just might have Kelton beaten right here!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: Jon Kelton kicks out yet again! Keltonmania lives on! Bryant Coffey is enraged as he slams his fists against the mat and then slams his fists into Kelton. But Kelton turns the fists against Coffey causing him to hit himself! Kelton punching the hell out of Coffey and you know he is straight hammering his ass. Coffey is rocked now and nearly falls over but Kelton grabs him and whips him off the ropes. Coffey flips over Kelton and that is some gymnastic type shit out here but Kelton catches him anyway and he is going to have to sit his ass down after this for real.

Jake Mercer: Jon Kelton with repeated backhands to the face of Bryant Coffey catching him unawares and he is shaking and nearly about to collapse. Bryant has severe brain trauma. Kelton kicks Bryant hard in the gut and connects with the Anti-Life Equation. HE GETS ALL OF IT!!! COFFEY IS DEAD AND THE COVER! KELTON HAS THIS THING WON!!!

Flannery McCoy: But Jon Kelton is not done! He pulls Bryant Coffey back up and gets him back in the same position! What the hell is Kelton doing?!?!

Stew-O: IT’S ABOUT SENDING A MESSAGE!!! ANOTHER ANTI-LIFE EQUATION CONNECTS!!!

Jake Mercer: KELTON WITH THE COVAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Referee: ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

Referee: TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Referee: THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stephie Love: Here is your winner… JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEON KELTONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!

(‘Last Strike’ then begins to play up again while Jon Kelton gets back up to his feet. He has a smirk on his face, clearly excited about the opportunity that he’s been given heading into Pain For Pride, while the referee raises his hand high in the air in victory. From there, he then begins to celebrate his ceremonious victory in a qualifier match.)

Flannery McCoy: Big win for Jon Kelton who proves tonight he hasn’t lost a step even if he has lost his New Breed Championship. Now he has the chance to redeem himself at Pain For Pride, and hopefully turn chicken shit to chicken salad.

Jake Mercer: He will always be the New Breed Champion to me tbh. <3

Stew-O: Well he might be winning all kinds of titles if he continues to have matches like he did tonight. Impressive showing from Bryant Coffey but it looks like Kelton will be the one to compete for Cash in the Vault. Speaking of titles. You win that match and you are almost guaranteed a World Title reign! Kelton is on the path to greatness and it all started here tonight!!!

(Kelton then begins to roll out of the ring, spreading his arms out with a smirk on his face one more time before then beginning to make his way up the ramp. The camera goes over to show Bryant Coffey who is leaning against the ropes while trying to get back up with a disappointed look on his face, before then beginning to roll out of the ring and walk away. The last shot seen is Kelton disappearing through the backstage area while Friday Night Dynasty from there begins to fade to a commercial break.)

(The camera cuts to a commercial for the 2022 Pawg of Fame ceremony. )

( Returning from a brief commercial break, the commentators welcome us back to another spellbinding episode of Friday Night Dynasty. Throughout the night, we’ve heard from iconic names such as Andre Walker and Dr. Bethany Blue regarding their current situations. The craziest part about this? Is that we’re hardly half-way through the show! ‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill begins to play through the sound system, the thousands of fans inside of the Safaricom Indoor Arena respond with thunderous boos and jeers. Naturally, there’s a small handful of cheers of elation for the man behind the entrance theme, Xander Payne, who walks out before the Nairobi faithful with a less-than-pleasant expression on his features. As Xander begins to make his way down the ramp and head towards the ring, cameras cut to the commentary desk. )

Stew-O: All things considered, I think that’s a kind reaction to Xander’s emergence.

Flannery McCoy: We were expecting much, much worse. It’s a miracle that the man isn’t having an abundance of food and drink thrown in his direction, following on from what he did at Battle of Egypt last weekend! Maybe the Kenyans are more forgiving than the average Ronn Banks fan as Xander Payne nearly killed the legend following his match with Jake Smith!

Stew-O: I still have the ringing of the timekeeper’s bell vibrating in my ear. Those shots were nothing short of sickening, it’s a miracle Banks is alive and walking!

Jake Mercer: Xander doesn’t seem all-too phased though. He has that same distant look on his face tonight that he does most nights. For all we know, there was a reason behind his attack and Ronn Banks had it coming! Though I’m a little doubtful of that theory.

( Xander Payne ascends the steel steps here in Nairobi. He gets into the ring and gestures for a microphone from ringside. The audience are still fervent with their booing, showing their displeasure for the former World Heavyweight titleholder. ‘It Follows’ dies down now and a couple of seconds later, so do the audience. Xander is silent for a moment, before he raises the microphone before his lips and begins to address the millions watching around the globe! )

Xander Payne: There was a time in this promotion where I was on top. I held one of the most prestigious championships in this industry and people labeled me the best professional wrestler on the entire planet. It was a common and fair opinion to have. I had this world in the palm of my hand, I ruled it. But then I came against The Visual Prophet and I tasted defeat. I lost against him at House of Glass and since that moment, I’ve been working like a dog trying to get back to those heights and reclaim my World Heavyweight Championship.

Xander Payne: But, the more I try, the harder I work, the more I seem to fail.

Xander Payne: Life is funny like that, isn’t it? One minute you’re on top of the world and the next you’re fighting to stay relevant, there’s piranhas chomping at your feet trying to climb over you. I have done everything I can possibly think of, to get back into the championship picture. Yet at Pain for Pride, The Visual Prophet isn’t facing me. Matter of fact, I’m not in any of the big championship matches at the show. At Grand Rampage, not only did I lose to SOSA Henderson but I also couldn’t win the Grand Rampage match, sure I was in the final four, but coming fourth place means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

Xander Payne: So I’ve been racking my brain, I’ve been looking back on all of my attempts to get to the top of the mountain again. And I had an epiphany. I had this moment of realization and since having that moment, I’ve felt reborn. The fact of the matter is, I’ve been going about things the right way for the longest time, keeping by-the-book, sticking to the script. I’ve been walking down the road that everyone before me has walked down, and despite all those prior attempts leading to failure, leading to where I am now, I thought I’d be the one to change that.

Xander Payne: I thought I’d get the results that I wanted, if I simply fought hard enough.

Xander Payne: Now I know what you’re all thinking, how have I failed? I won and held the World Heavyweight Championship, held it for as long as I did. I even got inducted into the Hall of Fame not too long ago, so this season has been a successful one, right? Not exactly. Because what have I done since losing to The Visual Prophet? Nothing. I’ve tried and failed and I’ve tried and I’ve failed and I’ve fought for as long as I’ve fought. But it’s not enough, it was never enough and that loss to SOSA Henderson was the straw that broke the camel’s back. That Hall of Fame induction means nothing to me, if I’m not performing at the level that a Hall of Famer should be.

Xander Payne: Take Kassidy Heart for example, also going into the Hall of Fame this year. She fought at Battle of Egypt and dominated the competition. She’s at the height of her game, she’s fighting for the Universal Women’s Championship at Pain for Pride. What the hell am I doing? Those losses at Grand Rampage, I had that make-or-break moment. I could’ve beat SOSA Henderson, I could’ve won the Grand Rampage match. But I didn’t. I failed. I lost. I could see those big moments, the bright lights of Las Vegas fading. My back was against the wall, the clock was ticking and ticking away. I felt like a rat in a cage, I felt hopeless.

Xander Payne: What I needed was a reset, to go back and do it all again. I know what I’d change and I’d know what I need to do to keep hold of the World Heavyweight Championship.

Xander Payne: But for the common man, it doesn’t work like that. This business is a dog-eat-dog business and for most of us, we don’t get to swan in-and-out whenever we want and get opportunities, big matches, or main events at the snap of our fingers. We have to work week-in and week-out and even then, it’s not enough. For most of us, that reset never comes. Our failures stick with us and the harder we try, the longer we fight, the harder we fall.

Xander Payne: Ronn Banks however, is an exception to the rule. He’s the founder of this company and he can do as he pleases, when he pleases and nobody questions it.

Xander Payne: So going back to where it all began, it’s him. He founded this company, he built it up and all of its memories, accolades, groundbreaking feats. He is the man behind the machine and the man that’s the cause behind this company being what it is today. At the snap of his fingers he can waltz into the main event of Battle of Egypt. While I get the shit end of the stick month-after-month, Banks can just come in, fuck over the full-time talent and do so knowing regardless of what happens, regardless of what is said, he’s untouchable.

Xander Payne: At least, he thinks he’s untouchable.

Xander Payne: The fact of the matter is, he’s no more human than the rest of us, only more privileged. He still bleeds, feels pain, no matter how rich he is, how often he works. Ronn Banks to me represents my starting point, I can go back and fuck him up and gain so much from beating the brakes off of someone like him. He is my trampoline, my springboard back into the bright lights, competing for championships. But I’m not just doing this for me, but for every man and woman who have been at the top, and then have suffered a brisk fall. At Battle of Egypt, I destroyed Ronn Banks and I destroyed him with a smile on my face. I showed the world he’s not untouchable, I showed the millions who watch his near-and-dear product that he’s nothing more than a sad, old man trying to hang onto his glory days.

Xander Payne: Banks, I’d remember what I did to you last week, I’d never show your face again and I’d stick to sitting behind a desk. I might have suffered the odd loss here and there since losing my World Heavyweight Championship. But I’m still a hell of a better wrestler than you. So stay the fuck out of my way while I rise through the ranks of this company again. If you try and come for revenge? I’ll have no problem finishing the job and putting you in an early grave.

( Throwing the microphone to the ground, Xander’s theme music plays once again as he vacates the ring and begins to ascend up the entrance ramp. The Keynan crowd here is a lot more one-sided in showing their displeasure for Payne’s comments. Xander however, doesn’t have a care in the world.)

Stew-O: Statement made by Xander Payne here tonight, and I just got word that Ronn Banks will be here live on Dynasty next week to respond to what he has to say!

Flannery McCoy: Exciting times indeed, and I sure can’t wait to see what will happen when the two of them meet in the ring when the time comes.

(The last shot seen is Xander then disappearing through the backstage area while Friday Night Dynasty then begins to go to a brief commercial.)

(A commercial is shown for the new Friday The 13th movie starring Ryan Wilson as Jason.)

(“Shadow of the Cemetery Man” by Rob Zombie plays as the crowd gives a positive reaction to Solomon walking out with the Unified Tag Title around his waist. Kirk Redwood by his side.)

Stephie Love: THE FOLLOWING IS A CASH IN THE VAULT QUALIFYING MATCH SET FOR ONE FALL!! INTRODUCING FIRST…ACCOMPANIED BY KIRK REDWOOD…FROM “THE CITY OF SIN”…WEIGHING IN AT 266 POUNDS….HE IS ONE HALF OF THE NEW EAW UNIFIED TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS…SOOLLOOMMOONNN STTANNEE!!!

Flannery McCoy: Thars right, you heard that correctly. These two shocked the world at Battle of Egypt becoming the new champions. And tonight, Solomon looks to take one step closer to achieving something amazing in his singles career. Can he do it again?

(“Faneto” by Chief Keef plays as SOSA gets a mixed reaction from the crowd. Nothing but a determined look on his face.)

Stephie Love: AND HIS OPPONENT…FROM PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA…WEIGHING IN AT 191 POUNDS…SOOSSSAAA HEENNDDERRSOONNN!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: You just have to wonder what kind of mood he’s in tonight, coming up just short against Mr. DEDEDE at Battle Of Egypt, but he’s looking to bounce back in a big way tonight. He’s been in Cash in the Vault before and looks to punch his ticket to another one tonight.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: And this Cash in the Vault qualifying match is underway as SOSA and Solomon lock up in the center of the ring. Solomon uses his power advantage and backs SOSA up into the corner. Solomon takes a swing at the head, but SOSA ducks and delivers several kicks and right hands in the corner. SOSA backs up to the opposite corner and charges at Solomon in the corner –

Flannery McCoy: SOLOMON COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP…AND HOLY SHIT WHAT STRENGTH AND DISTANCE HE GOT! SOSA LANDED FACE FIRST ON THE STEEL STEPS! SOSS stands up against the barricade holding his nose in pain coming face to face with Kirk Redwood….

Jake Mercer: SOLOMON TAKES ADVANTAGE OF SOSA TAKING HIS EYES OFF HIM AND TAKES HIM OUT WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!! A strong start here for the new Unified Tag Team Champion. Solomon throws SOSA back in the ring and follows right behind him, and Solomon runs looking for a big boot….BUT SOSA DUCKS AND HAS THE BACKSLIDE PIN!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Stew-O: SOLOMON ESCAPES IT! Both men race to their feet and SOSA GOES FOR A HURRICANRANA, BUT SOLOMON USES HIS STRENGTH AGAIN AND PULLS HIM UP IN A POWERBOMB POSITION…AND HE THROWS SOSA INTO THE CORNER WITH A BUCKLE BOMB!! AND SOLOMON RUNS OFF THE ROPES AND DRIVES HIS KNEE INTO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD AND FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A NECKBREAKER!! SOLOMON GOES FOR THE COVER NOW!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA KICKS OUT! Now Solomon doesn’t waste any time in getting SOSA up to his feet, but SOSA SLAPS THE HANDS AWAY AND DELIVERS A ENZIGURI KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD KNOCKING HIM BACK INTO THE CORNER!

Jake Mercer: SOSA sees an opening as he RUNS to the opposite corner and CHARGES- AND HE HITS A RUNNING DROPKICK TO THE FACE! HE THEN RUNS AND HITS ANOTHER ONE! AND THEN A THIRD TIME!! SOSA IS IN COMPLETE CONTROL AS SOLOMON WALKS FROM THE CORNER, AND WALKS RIGHT INTO A SUPERKICK! BUT SOLOMON USES HIS RING AWARENESS AND ROLLS OUT OF THE RING!

Stew-O: SOSA looks around, and then runs off the ropes- AND HE TAKES OUT SOLOMON WITH A TOPE CON HILO!! SOSA is in complete control of this match now as he goes to pick up Solomon.

Flannery McCoy: SOSA picks him up – BUT SOLOMON DRIVES HIM BACK FIRST INTO THE RING APRON! AND OH NO…HE LIFTS HIM UP, AND SPINEBUSTERS HIM ON THE RING APRON! SOLOMON KNOWS THIS IS HIS CHANCE AS HE ROLLS SOSA BACK IN THE RING AND THE GOES FOR THE COVER! IS HE CASHING HIS TICKET TO CASH IN THE VAULT?!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!!

Stew-O: SOSA GETS HIS SHOULDER UP! Solomon doesn’t waste any time in trying to keep the momentum on his side as he picks up SOSA by the side, and he picks him up in a running power slam position…BUT SOSA SLIPS OUT FROM BEHIND AND PUSHES SOLOMON FORWARD OFF THE ROPES AND LOOKS TO ROLL HIM UP –

Flannery McCoy: BUT SOLOMON HOLDS ON TO THE ROPE AS SOSA RISES BACK TO GIS FEET AND CHARGING, BUT SOLOMON STOPS HIM IN HIS TRACKS WITH AN ELBOW AS SOLOMON BACKTRACKS A FEW STEPS..BEFORE RUSHING AT HIM AGAIN, BUT SOLOMON GRABS HIS THROAT!! SOLOMON HAS HIM UP FOR THE “TRIUMPH OF TRUTH!!!!”….

Stew-O: BUT SOSA REVERSES IT INTO A ARM DRAG! Both of them race to their feet and charge at one another again – AND SOSA NEARLY SLICES SOLOMON IN HALF WITH A VICIOUS SPEAR!! SOSA WITH THE COVER NOW!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOLOMON KICKS OUT!! And now SOSA stalks Solomon like a shark that smells blood in the water, Solomon turns around….”STOLE YO BITCH!!!”

Jake Mercer: BUT SOLOMON PUSHES SOSA FORWARD, AND THEN SOSA TURNS AROUND AND RUNS INTO A BIG BOOT FROM SOLOMON! Solomon takes a second to recuperate in the corner as Kirk looks up and tries giving him some advice for perhaps closing this one out.

Stew-O: SOSA is on both knees, and Solomon sees that as he looks to set up for something….AND HE GOES FOR “MISERY’S END!!” THE LEAPING ELBOW DROP TO THE BACK OF SOSA’S HEAD! BUT SOLOMON DOESN’T STOP THERE AS HE PICKS HIM UP AND GRABS HIM BY THE THROAT ONCE MORE – AND HE HAS HIM UP AND CONNECTS WITH THE “TRIUMPH OF TRUTH!!!” THE SITOUT ONE HANDED CHOKESLAM AND SOLOMON FOLLOWS IT UP WITH THE COVER!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA HENDERSON STATS ALIVE!! The big question is if that was Solomon’s best shot as he shows a sign of frustration before getting back up to his feet. AND UH OH –

Stew-O: SOLOMON STOMPS ON THE BACK OF SOSA AND LOOKS TO GO FOR “ATONEMENT!!” THE CAMEL CLUTCH, BUT HE’S HAVING TROUBLE AS SOSA IS TRYING WITH ALL HIS WILL TO PREVENT IT! BUT SOLOMON’S STRENGTH GETS THE BETTER OF SOSA AND SOLOMON HAS THE CAMEL CLUTCH LOCKED IN, BUT SOSA IS CLOSE TO THE ROPES, DOES HE HAVE ENOUGH TO MAKE IT THERE?! SOSA SOMEHOW USES A BUT OF FLEXIBILITY AND THROWS HIS FOOT UNDERNEATH, FORCING A BREAK!

Flannery McCoy: SOLOMON THOUGH GRABS HIM BY THE FEET AND DRAGS HIM BACK TO THE CENTER OF THE RING, BUT SOLOMON KICKS HIM AWAY WITH HIS FEET BUYING HIM A BIT OF TIME TO GET UP AS SOLOMON RUNS GOING FOR A SPINNING LARIAT…BUT SOSA FUCKS IT AND PULLS HIM IN AND CONNECTS WITH A RIPCORD KNEE STRIKE!! AND THEN…”STOLE YO BITCH!!!” THE CUTTER TAKES OUT SOLOMON AND SOSA HOOKS THE LEG FOR THE WIN AND THE TRIP TO PAIN FOR PRIDE!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: KIRK POINTS OUT TO THE REFEREE THAT SOLOMON’S FOOT IS UNDER THE BOTTOM ROPE! GREAT RING AWARENESS THERE FROM SOLOMON AS SOSA IN A A LITTLE BIT OF DISBELIEF.

Jake Mercer: SOSA thinks of what to do next to punch his ticket to the Cash in the Vault ladder match, as he looks down to the stirring Solomon on both knees before dropping back down to the mat..AND HE GOES FOR “PAID IN FULL!!” –

Stew-O: BUT SOLOMON MOVES AS SOSA MISSES, AND SOLOMON STANDS BACK UP AND ALMOST TURNS SOSA INSIDE OUT WITH A VICIOUS CLOTHESLINE! SOLOMON COLLAPSES IN EXHAUSTION IN THE CORNER BEFORE SEVERAL MOMENTS LATER POPS UP AND EYES SOSA…AND HE PICKS HIM UP AND SETS HIM UP FOR THE “KEY OF SOLOMON!!” BUT SOSA THROWS A FEW ELBOW SHOTS, AND THEN TURNS IT INTO A SPINNING TORNADO DDT! BOTH COMPETITORS ARE DOWN NOW!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA runs now, and Solomon counters with a back body drop sending him over the top rope, but SOSA landed on the apron! He turns around, and SODA DELIVERS A FOREARM SHOT THAT STUNS SOLOMON DOWN TO ONE KNEE! SOSA NOW – HE SPRINGBOARDS OFF THE TOP ROPE AND TAKES SOLOMON OUT WITH A KNEE! SOSA ISN’T DONE AS HE CRAWLS UNDERNEATH THE ROPE AND MAKES HIS WAY UP TO THE TOP ROPE….THE 450 SPLASH!!!!!! BEAUTIFULLY EXECUTED BY THE FORMER EAW CHAMPION AS HE ONCE AGAIN GOES FOR THE COVER AND THE WIN!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!!

Stew-O: SOLOMON GETS HIS SHOULDER UP AGAIN! SOSA slowly gets back up to his feet and goes to pick Solomon up off of the mat – AND A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD FROM SOLOMON!! SOSA DOESN’T HAVE A CLUE WHERE HE IS AS SOLOMON GRABS HIM…AND CONNECTS WITH A SPINNING SIDE SLAM BACKBREAKER BEFORE TOSSING HIM ASIDE! THE MOMENTUM LOOKS TO BE ON SOLOMON’S SIDE NOW!

Flannery McCoy: Solomon can sense victory is perhaps near for him as he…OH NO! HE GRABS THE RIGHT LEG OF SOSA AND HE LOOKS TO BE GOING FOR HIS “DRAG YOU TO HELL” SUBMISSION! THE HEEL HOOK!! BUT SOSA AGAIN LOOKS TO FIGHT OUT OF A BAD SITUATION AS HE OUT OF INSTINCT CRAWLS AND GRABS AHOLD OF THE BOTTOM ROPE BEFORE IT COULD BE LOCKED IN! SOLOMON TRIES TO DRAG HIM, BUT SOSA KICKS HIM IN THE KNEECAP! SOSA STABDS AND LEAPS OVER HIM WITH THE SUNSET FLIP PIN!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEE!!!!

Jake Mercer: SOLOMON ESCAPES IT BACKWARDS AND THEY BOTH RACE TO THEIR FEET AGAIN, AND THEN SOLOMON RUNS INTO A SUPERKICK!!! BUT NO! SOLOMON CAUGHT THE FOOT, AND HE SPINS HIM AROUND, BUT THEN SOSA TRANSITIONED THAT INTO A LEAPING DOUBLE LEG LARIAT!!

Flannery McCoy: SOLOMON STUMBLES BACK UP TO HIS FEET, AND SOSS LOOKS TO PUT THIS MATCH AWAY AND GOES FOR “STOLE YO BITCH!!” BUT NO!! SOLOMON HOLDS HIM IN MID AIR, AND THEN SLAMS HIM FACE FIRST DOWN TO THE MAT! SOLOMON FOLLOWS THAT IP RUNNING OFF THE ROPE AND THE SELIVERS A BIG FOOT TO THE SIDE OF SOSA’S HEAD! THAT SOUNDED LIKE A DAMN FIRECRACKER AS SOLOMON TURNS HIM OVER AND GOES FOR THE WIN!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!!!

Stew-O: KICKOUT!! BUT I THINK SOLOMON WAS EXPECTING IT AS HE TRANSITIONS INTO HIS “DRAG YOU TO HELL” HEEL HOOK SUBMISSION ON THE LEG!! SOSA IS SCREAMING IN PAIN, IS HE GOING TO TAP OUT?!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA NOT GIVING UP AS HE LOOKS AT THE ROPES AND TRIES REACHING OUT AS SOLOMON APPLIES MAXIMUM PRESSURE!! KIRK REDWOOD IS IN FRONT OF HIM ON THE OUTSIDE YELLING AT HIM TO TAP OUT…AND SOSA OUT OF PURE ADRENALINE AND DESPERATION LUNGES AND HE GRABS AHOLD OF THE ROPE!! SOLOMON POUNDS THE MAT IN FRUSTRATION, BUT YOU HAVE TO WONDER IF THE DAMAGE WAS DONE THERE!

Jake Mercer: The referee forces him to back up as SOSA pulls himself up with the ropes and looks to be in pain not putting any pressure on the leg…AND SOLOMON NOTICES THAT AS HE GOES TO KICK THE LEG BUT SOSA HITS A HARD UPPERCUT! SOLOMON RESPONDS BACK WITH A HEADBUTT!! SUPERKICK FROM SOSA! AND THEN ANOTHER ONE DROPS HIM TO A KNEE, AND THEN A THIRD ONE TAKES HIM DOWN!! SOSA MAY HAVE VICTORY IN HIS SIGHTS AS HE GOES FOR “PAID IN FULL!!” –

Stew-O: BUT ONCE AGAIN, SOLOMON MOVES AS SOSA CLUTCHES HIS HURT LEG! SOLOMON RISES AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES, AND HE GOES FOR THE CLOTHESLINE, BUT SOSA DUCKS, AND IN ONE SWIFT MOTION – “STOLE YO BITCH!!!!” THE CUTTER TAKES DOWN DOLOMON AS KIRK HAS THAT LOOK OF CONCERN ON THE OUTSIDE! SOSA DOESN’T COVER THOUGH…

Flannery McCoy: SOSA IS MAKING SURE THIS ENDS IT AS…”PAID IN FULL”!!! SOSA FLIPS SOLOMON ON HIS BACK AND GOES FOR THE COVER AND THE WIN TO QUALIFY FOR CASH IN THE VAULT AS KIRK IS SCREAMING AT HIS PARTNER TO COME TO!

OOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEREEREEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER AND ADVANCING TO THE CASH IN THE VAULT LADDER MATCH….SOOOSSSAAA HEENNNDDEERRRSSSOOONNNNN!!!!

Flannery McCoy: SOSA bounces back in a huge way following Battle Of Egypt and punches his ticket to Pain for Pride to again compete in Cash in the Vault. Solomon ga e him one hell of a fight, but SOSA tonight wouldn’t be denied. Congratulations to SOSA Henderson on the well-earned victory tonight.

(The final shot is of SOSA celebrating his win in the ring as Solomon clutches his tag title shaking his head in disappointment as he and Kirk make their way to the back.)

Stephie Love: THE FOLLOWING CONTEST IS A ICONIC CUP BLOCK B MATCH SET FOR ONE FALL!! INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM TIJUANA, MEXICO…WEIGHING IN AT 126 POUNDS…SEERREENNIITTYYYY VALLDDEEZZZ!!!!

Stew-O: Serenity was and I believe still is one of the major players in this tournament. She suffered a setback against Hikari, but a win tonight could close that gap. Anything can happen.

(“7 Rings” by Ariana Grande plays as the crowd right away boos. Veena doesnt care at all, making her way to the ring.)

Stephie Love: AND HER OPPONENT….FROM GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT…WEIGHING IN AT 121 POUNDS….VEENNNAAAAA ADDAAMMMSS!!!!

Flannery McCoy: You have to wonder if her concentration is all there, knowing she’s stepping inside the steel cage structure tomorrow.

Jake Mercer: She’s an Adams, she’ll be fine. If anything, she wants to send a message and use Serenity as the symbol tonight.

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew-O: And this Block B match as Veena and Serenity lock up in the center of the ring, and Serenity applies a side headlock before Veena throws her to the ropes and Serenity rebounds off the ropes and delivers a flying elbow shot to the face as Veena rolls out of the ring regaining her composure.

Veena Adams (no mic): Hang on a second.

Flannery McCoy: BUT OUT OF NOWHERE AS VEENA WAS LOOKING DOWN, SERENITY FLIES THROUGH THE SECOND ROPE AND TAKES HER OUT WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!! Serenity looks to keep the momentum going as she picks her up…BUT VEENA DRIVES HER SPINE FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Veena grabs ahold of her head, and she bounces her face repeatedly off of the steel steps!

Jake Mercer: Veena throws her back in the ring and stalks her before running and driving her knee full force into the side of the head – BUT SERENITY SIDESTEPS AND CONNECTS WITH A BACKSLIDE PIN…BUT VEENA ROLLS THROUGH BACK TO HER FEET, AND DELIVERS A KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD! Veena picks up Serenity by the hair, but Serenity fights out of it pushing Veena back a few feet, and then Veena walks into a hip toss, but she somehow landed on her feet! And then Veena delivers a soccer style kick to the face! A snapmare, and then a dropkick to the back of the head as Veena goes for the first cover in this match!

OOOOOONNNEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Stew-O: And an early kickout as Veena mounts on top of Serenity and begins throwing several rights and stiff elbow shots as Serenity tries covering up, having little success. And finally the referee forces her to back up.

Veena Adams (no mic): DON’T TOUCH ME!

Flannery McCoy: Veena now goes to grab her by the head, but Serenity out of nowhere hits a spin kick to the midsection, and then delivers a soccer style kick to the face before grabbing Veena, and delivers a bridging suplex! Serenity looks to have the momentum now as Veena pulls herself up in the corner, and LOOK OUT! HERE COMES SERENITY WITH A FULL HEAD OF STEAM AND SHE DRIVES BOTH KNEES INTO THE CHEST!

Jake Mercer: AND SHE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A MONKEY FLIP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING, BUT VEENA LANDED ON HER FEET SOMEHOW! WOW! Serenity turns around…..AND VEENA ADAMS GOES FOR A BIG BOOT, BUT SERENITY DUCKS UNDER AND PICKS HER UP IN A POWERBOMB POSITION…OH NO…OH NO!!!

Flannery McCoy: SERENITY POWERBOMBS VEENA OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE FLOOR – BUT NO!!! VEENA COUNTERED IT INTO A HURRICANRANA!! Serenity landed awkwardly on her head as she stands up as Veens stands on the apron… AND VEENA TAKES HER OUT WITH A CROSSBODY!! Veena right away picks up Serenity and goes to throw her – BUT SERENITY REVERSES SENDING HER SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE STEEL STEPS!!

Jake Mercer: Serenity picks Veena up and tosses her back inside the ring before she climbs up the apron and goes up to the top rope. AND SERENITY GOES FOR A HIGH FROG SPLASH!!! BUT NO!! VEENA MOVED AT THE LAST SECOND, AND THEN SHE TRANSITIONS AND GRABS THE ARM OF SERENITY, SHE’S GOING FOR HER ARMBREAKER!! SERENITY THOUGH HAS HER FINGERS LOCKED TRYING TO PREVENT IT FROM HAPPENING!

Stew-O: AND SERENITY FLIPS VEENA ON HER BACK AND GETS HER TO RELEASE HER ARM WITH A VICIOUS RIGHT HAND, AND THEN SHE HITS ANOTHER ONE! Serenity avoids disaster but one can only wonder if there’s zero room for error after missing the frog splash last time. Serenity picks Veena up facing her head, and Ceena throws a right hand to the midsection before slapping the hands away…AND A JUMPING KNEE STRIKE TAKES SERENITY DOWN, AND THEN VEENA FOLLOWS IT UP DRIVING BOTH FEET INTO THE CHEST OF SERENITY WITH A LEAPING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP! ANOTHER COVER!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOO!!!!

Flannery McCoy: A KICKOUT FROM SERENITY! Now Veena looks for her next move in this Block B match, and she looks over to the top rope and she climbs up high. Veena stands tall on the top…AND SHE GOES FOR “TWISTED VEENA” OFF OF THE TOP ROPE!!!

Stew-O: BUT SERENITY GETS HER KNEES UP AS IT’S VEENA WHO TOOK A RISK AND ENDED UP PAYING FOR IT THIS TIME! AND NOW…SERENITY TRANSITIONS INTO A CROSSFACE SUBMISSION!!! SERENITY WRENCHES BACK ON IT AS VEENA’S BODY IS BENDING LIKE A PRETZEL! WHAT IS SHE GOING TO DO?!

Flannery McCoy: VEENA REACHES OUT FOR THE ROPE..BUT SERENITY STOMPS ON THE HAND OF VEENA IN FRONT OF HER! VEENA IS STUCK…BUT OH NO…VEENA REVERSES INTO A PIN!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!

Stew-O: BUT SERENITY REVERSES THE PRESSURE BACK INTO THE CROSSFACE! VEENA AGAIN HAS NOWHERE TO GO! Veena reaches out and begins to inch closer and closer to the rope, and she’s fingertips away…SHE REACHES OUT…AND SHE GRABS THE BOTTOM ROPE AS THE REFEREE MAKES SERENITY LET GO OF THE HOLD AND BACK UP!

Jake Mercer: Veena pulls herself up with the ropes, and Serenity wastes no time in going back on the attack…BUT VEENA WITH AN INSIDE CRADLE!! VEENA IS GOING TO STEAL IT!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: VEENA HAS A HOLD OF THE ROPES FOR LEVERAGE!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!

Stew-O: BUT SERENITY STILL MANAGES TO ESCAPE AS BOTH WOMEN RACE TO THEIR FEET, AND THEY BOTH RUN INTO A DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE ON THE OTHER!! BOTH ARE DOWN NOW!

Flannery McCoy: Both of them crawl to opposite corners of one another, and Veena charges at Serenity in the corner, but Serenity stops her in her tracks with elbow, before she springboards of the second rope- AND SHE TAKES OUT VEENA WITH A DROPKICK! VEENA IS UP AND WALKS INTO A CLOTHESLINE, AND THEN ANOTHER ONE! SERENITY HAS ALL THE MOMENTUM ON HER SIDE RIGHT NOW!

Stew-O: SERENITY LOOKS TO KEEP IT GOING, VEENA WALKS INTO THE ARM OF SERENITY, AND SERENITY PLANTS VEENA WITH A REVERSE STO! SERENITY GIES FOR ANOTHER COVER!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!

Jake Mercer: VEENA ADAMS WITH THE KICKOUT!! Serenity quickly picks her up off the MAT and picks her up in a fireman’s carry position – BUT VEENA SLIPS OUT FROM BEHIND AND BENDS HER BACK…AND SHE DELIVERS A REVERSE DDT SPIKING SERENITY’S HEAD INTO THE MAT!

Flannery McCoy: Veena doesn’t go for the cover though knowing that likely won’t be enough to put Serenity away. Veena puts both hands on the knee stalking Serenity while is stirring to her feet – AND VEENA RUNS AND DELIVERS A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE TO THE FACE! VEENA IMMEDIATELY GRABS THE LEG AND TRANSITIONS INTO A SINGLE LEG CRAB! VEENA PULLING THE LEG BACK AS FAR AS SHE CAN AS SERENITY SCREAMS IN PAIN TRYING TO REACH FOR THE ROPES! DOES SHE HAVE IT IN HER TO GET THERE?!

Stew-O: SHE REACHES OUT….BUT VEENA PULLS HER BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! WHAT IS SERENITY GOING TO DO NOW?! AFTER SEVERAL MOMENTS, SERENITY MANAGES TO FLIP HERSELF ON HER BACK, AND SHE DELIVERS SEVERAL KICK TO THE FACE OF VEENA, AND VEENA FINALLY LETS GO OF HER LEG AND STUMBLES BACK A FEW FEET ALLOWING SERENITY TO STAND UP ON A HURT LEG, AND VEENA CHARGES AGAIN – A SUPERKICK!!! SUPERKICK FROM SERENITY AS SHE FALLS ON TOP FOR THE COVER AND THE WIN!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEE!!!!

Flannery McCoy: VEENA ADAMS STAYS ALIVE ONCE MORE!! Now Serenity thinks of her next move in this match…AND SHE PICKS UP VEENS BY THE HEAD AND LOOKS TO GO FOR A DDT – BUT VEENA TWIRLS OUT OF IT, AND THEN DELIVERS A HIGH KNEE ACROSS THE BRIDGE OF THE NOSE, AND THEN PULLS SERENITY IN AND CONNECTS WITH A DDT OF HER OWN SPIKING HER HEAD INTO THE MAT!! And now….

Stew-O: Veena goes up top, and I think we all know what she is setting up for here…”FATAL VOW!!!” BUT SERENITY MOVED OUT OF THE WAY AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND! VEENA ROLLS THROUGH TO HER FEET AND GOES FOR THE CLOTHESLINE, BUT SERENITY DUCKS AND RUNS OFF THE ROPES AND DELIVERS A SLINGBLADE! VEENA IS BACK UP….AND SHE GOES FOR A SPEAR – BUT SERENITY SIDESTEPS SENDING VEENA OFF THE OPPOSITE ROPES….

Flannery McCoy: VEENA RUNS INTO THE ARMS OF SERENITY AND SERENITY HITS A SPANISH FLY!! THE HOOK OF THE LEG FROM SERENITY NOW!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!!

Stew-O: VEENA KICKS OUT!! Now Serenity gets up and perhaps is setting up for the knockout blow. SHE RUNS OFF THE ROPES AND IS GOING FOR “HIT THE LIGHTS!!” BUT VEENA HAS EYES AT THE BACK OF HER HEAD AS SHE DUCKS UNDER, POPS UP AND DELIVERS A LEAPING BACKSTABBER! DAMN!!

Jake Mercer: Now it’s Veena who has shifted momentum in her favor here, VEENA HAS HER IN POSITION…”EFFECTIVE!!!” THE FRONT POWERBOMB LUNGBLOWER CONNECTS AS VEENA FOES FOR THE COVER!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEE!!!!

Flannery McCoy: THE KICKOUT FROM SERENITY!!! Veena lets out a small scream of frustration before going back on the offense, lifting Serenity up…and Serenity tries fighting back with a shot to the midsection, and then another one, and another one before hitting a hard uppercut that drives Veena back into the corner, and Serenity charges – BUT NOBODY HOME AS VEENA MOVES!

Stew-O: SERENITY IS A SITTING DUCK IN THE CORNER NOW AS VEENA CHARGES AND DELIVERS A HIGH KNEE TO THE FACE, AND FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A BULLDOG! VEENA FEELS VICTORY MAY BE NEAR HERE AS SERENITY STUMBLES BACK UP TO HER FEET, AND SHE RUNS OFF THE ROPES AND – SPEARR!!! BUT NO! SERENITY LEAPFROGGED ABOVE HER AND VEENA RUNS OFF THE OPPOSITE ROPES, AND THIS TIME THE SPEAR CONNECTS!!!! VEENA HOOKS BOTH LEGS FOR THE TWO POINTS!!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEE!!!!

Jake Mercer: SERENITY KICKS OUT!! AND VEENA CAN’T BELIEVE IT! VEENA CRAWLS UNDER THE ROPE AND I THINK SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE HAS TO DO TO PUT SERENITY AWAY!

Stew-O: For the second time in this match, Veena is going to go for “Fatal Vow!” She stands tall…BUT SERENITY LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL RUSHES UP TO THE TOP ROPE WITH HER, AND IT’S A BATTLE FOR CONTROL AS BOTH WOMEN EXCHANGE SHOTS WITH ONE ANOTHER ON THE TOP ROPE! AND OH MY GOD, SERENITY HOPS ON THE SHOULDERS OF VEENA AND DELIVERS A HURRICANRANA FROM THE TOP ROPE!!! :damn: SERENITY LANDS ON HER FEET AND LOOKS TO KEEP THIS FLURRY GOING…SHE LEAPS…AND SHE CONNECTS WITH “EL ULTIMO BAILE!!!” RECOIL CONNECTS AS SERENITY CRAWLS OVER AND MAKES THE COVER FOR THE WIN!!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEE!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: VEENA ADAMS STAYS ALIVE!! HOW?!

Stew-O: Serenity picks her up, AND VEENA PULLS HER IN WITH A RIPCORD KNEE, AND SHE RUNS OFF THE ROPES ONCE MORE – AND SHE GOES FOR THE SPEAR – BIT SERENITY SIDESTEPS AND SENDS VEENA SHOULDER FIRST INTO THE RING POST THROUGH THE SECOND TURNBUCKLE!!

Flannery McCoy: SERENITY PULLS HER FROM THE CORNER AND GOES FOR A SCOOP SLAM, BUT VEENA REVERSES LANDING ON HER FEET AND PICKS HER UP FOR A BACK SUPLEX…BUT SERENITY ROLLS THROUGH AND HAS THE PIN!!

OOOOONNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

TTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEE!!!!!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

(‘Dolla Sign Slime’ by Lil Nas X & Megan Thee Stallion plays as Serenity scurries out of the ring while Veena asks the referee in shock if that was a three count )

Stephie Love: HERE IS YOUR WINNER…SSEERRENNIITTYYYY VAALLLDDEEEZZZZ!!!!

Stew-O: WOW! Serenity caught Veena out of nowhere there and picks up two very important points in a very good match, staying alive in the Block behind Hikari.

Jake Mercer: Indeed a hard-fought battle, but our own Dynasty queen prevails :blessed:

(The final shot is of Serenity celebrating her win on the ramp, while Veena is extremely frustrated inside the ring on how the match ended.)

(A commercial is shown Gang Beasts starring Jon Kelton.)

(“Somebody Get Me A Doctor” by Van Halen begins to blast through the speakers as the crowd instantly pops for Dr. Bethany Blue, the Empress of Elite, who wears the beautiful crown on the top of her head.)

Stephie Love: THE F OLLOWING MATCH IS SCHEDULED FOR ONE FALL–

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!!!!!

Stephie Love: INTRODUCING FIRST…FROM MIAMI, FLORDIA…SHE IS THE 2022 EMPRESS OF ELITE…DR. BETHANY BLUE…M.D.!!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: It’s Pain for Pride season and it seems like there’s no idea where Dr. Bethany Blue will fit on the card as of right now and she made her feelings on that matter abundantly clear. She expressed her frustrations with this situation all week by implying that EAW and our GM StarrStan does not see her in the same light as Andre Walker as a potential face of the company. Claims she hasn’t been given the same opportunities since they both won crowns back in February. Of course Andre Walker took exception to that and earlier tonight he made it clear that he called his own shots, not StarrStan and she is every bit as capable of calling her own shot the way he has instead of making excuses and pointing fingers.

Jake Mercer: Well I think Bethany is goated and deserves a Pain for Pride main event, BUT Andre has a point here. He put himself in that main event a few weeks after he won King of Elite and wasted no time rather than sitting on his cash in announcement. He didn’t ask for permission. Maybe Bethany feels she was undercut by a ladder match being announced?

Stew-O: But if that’s the case wouldn’t something like a Grand Rampage be undercutting both of them? At the end of the day, it’s up to the holder to determine when they want to cash in. One thing we’ve grown to know about Bethany, is she never met a general manager she didn’t blame for her troubles. Will anything ever be satisfying enough for her? Or will she just continue to accomplish things each season and by the end of it be unhappy because she wasn’t the bar-none, by far the number one option here in EAW?

Jake Mercer: You know what I’d do if I were her? I’d kick Andre’s ass to prove I’m superior and then announce I’m inserting myself in his Pain for Pride match. Empress vs King vs WHC for all the marbles, winner becomes Empress King World Heavyweight Champ, it’s lit!

(“Leaving Caladan” by Hans Zimmer replaces “Somebody Get Me A Doctor” as the crowd roars for Andre Walker, King of Elite and Interwire Champion, who has his title being held by Albert Hitchman in the back. He has a serious look on his face as he looks at the sea of EAW fans tonight.)

Stephie Love: AND INTRODUCING HER OPPONENT…BEING ACCOMPANIED TO THE RING BY ALBERT HITCHMAN…FROM THE ISLE OF SAMOA…WEIGHING IN 245 POUNDS…HE IS THE 2022 KING OF ELITE AND EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION…ANDRE WALKER!!!!!!!

Flannery McCoy: We saw Andre out here earlier call out his Pain for Pride opponent, who doesn’t seem to have even arrived yet, much to Andre’s annoyance but nonetheless he’s here and ready to make a statement against Bethany! This is a man who has had a hell of a season. Andre Walker will be headlining Pain for Pride against The Visual Prophet in a Winner Takes All match at Pain for Pride. This is probably one of the biggest matches that we’ve ever had for Pain for Pride and something that could change the landscape of EAW for sure.

Jake Mercer: I am looking forward to seeing those juggernauts throwing it down. It’s a match up we knew was going to happen at some point. StarrStan let it be known that this is a match up that he’s wanted for a while and we’re getting it. Right now, he’s gotta get through the Empress of Elite, who looks more than ready to take down ‘The Kaiser.’

Stew-O: ‘The Doctor versus The Kaiser,’ ‘King of Elite versus Empress of Elite,’ ‘Blue versus Walker’ and all of that begins…NOW!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Jake Mercer: THIS CO-MAIN EVENT IS UNDERWAY! I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS ONE ALL WEEK!

Stew-O: We’re seeing Andre Waker and Dr. Bethany Blue standing face-to-face, but Bethany is more than embracing this challenge in front of her. King of Elite versus Empress of Elite.

Flannery McCoy: King of Elite versus Empress of Elite. I don’t think that I would have realized that until you brought it up, Stew. That’s crazy to think about. All throughout their time in Dynasty, men and women have fallen to their feet. Men and women have approached them and left without a victory. To me, it’s what makes this entire match interesting because these two are Elitists who went through a tournament to wear the crowns on top of their heads. They are more than poised, ready to pull the trigger on their respective destinies and become World Champions. It’s going to happen at some point in 2022. For someone like Andre, it could happen at Pain for Pride.

Jake Mercer: That’s what makes me excited for this entire thing. These two were able to win their own tournaments. These are two of the best Elitists to not have won a World Championship yet and honestly, I can’t find a favorite going into this match. I think they’re both outstanding in their own ways.

Stew-O: For someone like Bethany, she felt a little shafted that she didn’t have the opportunity to headline Pain for Pride against Andrea Valentine. She felt like StarrStan didn’t believe that she was good enough to headline Pain for Pride, so what do you think about the message it could send to StarrStan if Bethany defeats one-half of Dynasty’s Pain for Pride main event?

Flannery McCoy: That would be insane! Dr. Bethany Blue is an amazing wrestler. She may be one of the best technical wrestlers in the world and she may show that in this match. While Andre has power and strength, Bethany is intelligent and technical. I think it’s going to be one of those dynamics that is going to gel just well.

Jake Mercer: We see Dr. Bethany Blue extend her hands out, almost like she’s challenging Andre Walker to a test of strength. Honestly, I don’t think that this is going to be the smartest thing for Bethany to try so early into this match. You can just see the slight, smooth chuckle on the corner of the Interwire Champion’s lips! Bethany seems to be quite legit on her challenge, almost like she’s egging on Andre to accept it.

Stew-O: If any of you witnessed the videos of these two addressing each other, you would kind of get the impression that Andre Walker doesn’t see Dr. Bethany Blue as ‘marketable’ and that his win outshined hers. You would think that would place a chip on the Empress’ shoulder?

Flannery McCoy: Oh, 100% and it seems like Andre Walker is going to accept Dr. Bethany Blue’s test of strength, bUT BETHANY GRABS ANDRE BY HIS ARM, SPINS HIM AROUND, TRYING TO GET HIM DOWN FOR ‘THE DISLOCATION,’ BUT ANDRE HOISTS UP THE EMPRESS OF ELITE AND THROWS HER OVER HIS SHOULDER, BUT BETHANY IS ABLE TO CATCH HERSELF ON HER FEET! BETHANY MANAGES TO GET THE POSITION OF ANDRE’S ARM BEFORE CONNECTING WITH AN ARM DRAG, BUT ANDRE IS ABLE TO SLIDE INTO ONE KNEE FOR THAT SMOOTH LANDING. Bethany is looking across from the King of Elite as she runs after him, looking to connect with a running dropkick, but Andre has the former Specialists Champion by her legs! Bethany goes crashing onto her back as Andre has his back turned against one of the corners! Bethany is trying to twist and turn herself out of the grasp of the Interwire Champion, but he ends up catapulting her to the turnbuckle –

Jake Mercer: – BETHANY BLUE CATCHES HERSELF ON THE TURNBUCKLE AS ANDRE WALKER TURNS HIMSELF AROUND, BUT BETHANY SPRINGBOARDS HERSELF FROM THE HORIZONTAL SET OF ROPES, HITTING ANDRE WITH A SPRINGBOARD ENZIGURI, BUT WHAT IN THE HELL? THAT DOESN’T TAKE ANDRE DOWN COMPLETELY! IT ONLY CAUSES THE CHAMPION TO TURN HIS HEAD BACK! But, it seems like Bethany is looking to continue the task of getting the bigger man down to his knees running to the set of ropes in front of him and delivering a dropkick to his right leg, but that only causes him to stumble a bit before he manages to rebalance himself again. Bethany is STILL not giving up as she connects with a ‘TJD’ – her variation of the superkick that takes Andre back! Another ‘TJD’ and it takes Andre down again! And another one! This time, Andre falls to one knee! Bethany takes a step back before charging towards ‘The Kaiser’ and knocking him down with a somersault clothesline! She quickly goes for the cover!

OOOOONNNNNEEEEE!!!!!!

TT–

Stew-O: Andre Walker lifts Dr. Bethany Blue up and throws her over and away from him! Bethany manages to land on her knees, but the landing wasn’t quite pretty! Andre finds himself in a seated position, but Bethany tries to get herself back to her feet, but Andre manages to get to his feet first as he yanks the Empress of Elite by her hair, which gets her up to her feet at the same time! He lifts up the Doctor before throwing her into one of the corners, almost as if she was a rag doll! Andre takes a stand back before launching his punch at Bethany, BUT BETHANY GETS THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY! SHE SHOVES ANDRE INTO THAT SAME CORNER THAT SHE WAS PREVIOUSLY IN BEFORE CLUBBING HIM WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES. BETHANY BEGINS TO KICK HIM IN THE RIBS AS HE IS FINDING HIMSELF SEATED ON THE SECOND ROPE. SHE TAKES A STAND BACK BEFORE DELIVERING A SIDE-HAND CHOP TO THE CHEST!

Flannery McCoy: The crowd popped for that, but just look at the facial response from Andre Walker. He’s chuckling at Dr. Bethany Blue’s attempt to bruise his chest.

Jake Mercer: Just look at Bethany’s face, Flann. It’s almost like she’s feeling insulted that Andre Walker is not taking any of her offenses seriously and realizes that she may need to come up with something more hard-hitting. BETHANY TAKES A STEP BACK WITH HER HAND AND DELIVERS ONE OF THE LOUDEST SLAPS TO THE CHEST THAT I HAVE EVER HEARD! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! THE CROWD IS UP ON THEIR FEET AS THEY CAN FEEL THE FIRE AND INTENSITY COMING OUT OF BETHANY BLUE! OH LORD, LOOK AT HER HAND…

(The camera pans to Dr. Bethany Blue’s right hand. It’s all completely pink, but one of the noticeable things is that the press-on nails on her middle finger and ring finger have completely fallen off her hand. The index finger looks like it’s going to fall apart at any second, but Bethany doesn’t look to be phased about it – she’s determined to do what she can for the victory.)

Andre Walker: :mjlol2:

Dr. Bethany Blue: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E_7z_uzVgAIA0IS.png

Commentators: :damn: :damn: :damn:

Stew-O: It’s all business for Dr. Bethany Blue who rises up to her feet! Andre Walker stands himself up from the ropes. Bethany is gesturing for the King of Elite to come at her with everything that he has to offer. Andre shows no sign of hesitation by swinging a punch at Bethany’s direction, BUT BETHANY DUCKS THE PUNCH BEFORE GOING FOR A SIDE HANDED CHOP TO THE CHEST OF THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION! BETHANY CONNECTS WITH A KICK TO THE GUT OF ANDRE, WHICH STAGGERS HIM BACK, BUT HE IS ABLE TO REBALANCE HIMSELF AS BETHANY CONNECTS WITH A ‘TJD’ WHICH TAKES HIM BACK INTO THE ROPES! BETHANY RUNS TOWARDS ANDRE, CONNECTING WITH A KNEE STRIKE WHICH CATCHES HIM IN THE FOREHEAD! THIS CAUSES FOR THE BIGGER ELITIST TO SIT HIMSELF DOWN ON THE SECOND ROPE AS BETHANY BEGINS TO UNLOAD ON HIM WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES AND KICKS!

Flannery McCoy: Dr. Bethany Blue gets Andre Walker by his arm before pulling him and whipping him into the horizontal set of ropes across from him, but Andre is able to stop himself in his tracks by holding onto the ropes! Bethany charges towards ‘The Kaiser’ who immediately lifts the former Specialists Champion over his head and about ten feet in the air, BUT BETHANY IS ABLE TO CATCH HERSELF ON THE APRON! ANDRE TURNS HIMSELF AROUND AS BETHANY NAILS HIM WITH A FOREARM! THEN, SHE CONNECTS WITH A SHOULDER THRUST THROUGH THE MIDDLE ROPE AND ONTO THE RIBS OF ANDRE. SHE RUSHES TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE AND LOOKS LIKE SHE’S GOING FOR A RISKY MOVE. ANDRE RUSHES TOWARDS HER, BUT BETHANY FROM THE TOP ROPE –

Jake Mercer: Meteora to Andre Walker – BUT ANDRE MANAGES TO CATCH DR. BETHANY BLUE AND HE’S GOING FOR A POWERBOMB, BUT BETHANY IS ABLE TO GET ON THE SHOULDERS OF ANDRE BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A POISONRANA ON ANDRE, SPIKING HIM ON THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! BETHANY WITH THE COVER!

OOOOOONNNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TTTTTTWWWWWW—

Stew-O: Andre Walker with a powerful kick out as Dr. Bethany Blue begins to throw some punches at Andre’s way. Then, she gets Andre’s legs an it seems like she’s going for the elevated Boston crab that she calls “Fractured.” It seems like Bethany is going to be targeting the back of Andre, which maybe a smart approach. Bethany has made it a point in the past that the back is one of the most important parts of the body. It seems like Bethany is applying pressure at the bridge of the neck/upper back as you can see that causing a bit of pain on the Interwire Champion.

Flannery McCoy: Albert Hitchman is looking underneath the bottom rope, almost trying to root on his client to get to the bottom rope. Dr. Bethany Blue is looking at Albert’s way, almost if her eyes are telling her “look at what I can do to your to Andre if needed too.” If Andre finds himself in that move long enough, it could lead to some permanent damage – even paralysis. I believe that Albert is aware of that, but I don’t think that he feels the need to meddle in behalf of Andre unless absolutely necessary. On the other hand, he needs to protect his moneymaker, the man who is restoring his reputation as one of the best managers in EAW history.

Jake Mercer: Andre Walker is showing some strength as he’s trying to drag his body into going for that bottom rope. Dr. Bethany Blue applies more pressure onto the elevated Boston crab as that makes Andre grind his teeth in pain, making it more difficult to provide any movement for himself. It’s one of the things that makes Bethany such a dangerous wrestler. She’s a doctor. She knows all the body parts like the back of her hand. She knows which body parts to go with that would causes some reaction to whoever is facing her in the ring. Andre is trying to twist himself around, hoping to twist Bethany out of position, but it seems like Bethany is going for a figure four leg-lock on the Interwire Champion! She still had position of the legs, which made applying that submission hold a bit easier for her.

Stew-O: Albert Hitchman gets on the apron, almost sliding inside the ring for Andre Walker as the referee goes over to yell at him! Dr. Bethany Blue releases the figure four as she is trying to get the attention of the referee. At that moment, Albert jumps off the apron and back into ringside as him and Bethany are finding themselves in a war of words. Bethany tells Albert to stay out of her way, almost like in a warning kind of way before going to resume her punishment on Andre. She sees that Andre is in a crawling position as Bethany grabs him by his mane of hair.

Flannery McCoy: ANDRE WALKER CONNECTS WITH A HEADBUTT AS THAT NAILS DR. BETHANY BLUE IN THE FACE, STAGGERING HER BACK AGAIN. SHE GOES FOR A KICK TO ANDRE’S FACE, BUT ANDRE MANAGES TO CATCH HER BY THE FOOT BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A DRAGON SCREW LEG WHIP AS BETHANY GETS TURNED TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RING. Andre finds his way to his feet as Bethany tries to get herself to her feet, but Andre beats her to the punch and connects with big boot to her face as that takes her back instantly! Andre, picking up Bethany like a rag doll, tosses her across the ring! Bethany seems a bit dizzy at this point as she gets to her feet and backs herself into one of the corners! Andre connects with a jumping corner clothesline as that makes Bethany stumble forward, but Andre hoists her up in the air before connecting with an uppercut that drops her down!

Jake Mercer: Did you see how high Bethany Blue was up in the air? That had to be like more than ten feet, but Andre Walker picked her up like she was almost nothing. She’s also quite tall, which makes the entire thing crazy to even think! Andre gets Bethany by her waist and it seems like he’s going for a German suplex on her, but she finds a way to roll to her feet! Andre knows that he needs to take her down, so he follows that up with a boot to her face as that takes her down! Andre places a boot on her chest as he covers her like that.

OOOOONNNNNEEEEE!!!!!!!!

TTTTTWWWWW–

Stew-O: Dr. Bethany Blue gets a shoulder up, but she manages to get Andre Walker by the one leg that he had pinned her with and connects with a chop to the back of his leg, which drops him down into a seated position! Bethany finds herself on top of Andre before unloading on a series of punches. You could tell that Bethany felt a bit of disrespect by Andre doing that. Honestly, I believe that Bethany is undeserving of that disrespect. She’s a former Interwire Champion, Specialists Champion and Empress of Elite. She believes that she deserves a bit more respect than needed to be.

Flannery McCoy: I actually agree with her opinion. She deserves a ton more credit and respect than she’s been getting. How come the Empress of Elite is an afterthought? How come she isn’t poised to be in the main event of Pain for Pride? How come she’s not being held in the same light as Andre Walker?

Jake Mercer: Andre Walker has all of the tools, Flannery. The look, the size, the charisma, the power and he’s the rightful heir to The Visual Prophet’s World Heavyweight Championship. Dr. Bethany Blue begins to apply a headscissors on the neck of the Interwire Champion, but YOU CAN SEE THAT ANDRE IS ABLE TO TURN HIMSELF AROUND AND MAN, WON’T YOU LOOK AT THE STRENGTH AS HE NOT ONLY MANAGES TO GET HIMSELF UP, BUT BETHANY AS WELL? SHE HOISTS UP THE EMPRESS OF ELITE AND TAKES HER DOWN WITH A POWERBOMB, BUT HE MAINTAINS HOLD OF THE POWERBOMB BEFORE HOISTING HER UP AGAIN AND CONNECTING WITH ANOTHER POWERBOMB! THEN, HE HOISTS HER UP BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A THIRD POWERBOMB, SLAMMING HER AGAINST THE MAT! BETHANY IS CLUTCHING ONTO HER LOWER BACK AS ANDRE JUST CONNECTED WITH THREE CONSECUTIVE POWERBOMBS!

Stew-O: Meanwhile, Dr. Bethany Blue rolls herself out of the ring and recovers on the apron. Andre Walker has a bit of a smirk on his face as he rebounds himself off the horizontal set of ropes and connects with a baseball slide dropkick as that knocks Bethany off the apron as she falls at ringside. Andre takes her place on the apron as he looks down on the Empress before dropping his feet down to ringside in order to get her. Andre gets Bethany by her sandy blonde hair before throwing her to the steel steps. BETHANY LANDS STOMACH FIRST AGAINST THOSE STEEL STEPS, CAUSING HER TO DROP DOWN INSTANTLY! SHE IS CLUTCHING HER STOMACH IN PAIN AS ANDRE PICKS HER UP BEFORE BODY SLAMMING HER ON THE EDGE OF THE APRON! THIS IS CAUSING FOR BETHANY TO CRY OUT IN PAIN AS IT SEEMS LIKE HER TAILBONE GOT ON THE EDGE OF THE APRON THE MOST!

Flannery McCoy: Andre Walker sees that Dr. Bethany Blue is on the apron, but she has the upper half of her body dangling upside down. The back of her knees are holding onto the bottom set of ropes as it seems like Andre might have an idea of what to do! He takes a couple of steps back, but his sights don’t leave Bethany! HE CHARGES TO THE FORMER SPECIALISTS CHAMPION BEFORE NAILING HER WITH A DROPKICK TO THE FACE, CAUSING FOR BETHANY TO LEAVE THE TREE-OF-WOE POSITION AND LAND ON HER HEAD BACK AT RINGSIDE. GEE, I HOPE THAT’S NOT A CONCUSSION THERE, BUT I DON’T DOUBT THAT ANDRE WILL DO ANYTHING HE CAN TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION AROUND HIM! ANDRE PICKS UP BETHANY IN A HORIZONTAL POSITION! HE HAS HIS EYES ON THE STEEL RING POST, OH BOY! :lupe:

Jake Mercer: Oh yes, Flannery. It seems like Andre Walker is going to continue his form of punishment on Bethany as he rams her against the steel ring post! YOU COULD SEE BETHANY’S BACK ARCHING BACK AS ANDRE RAMS BETHANY’S SPINE AGAINST THE RING POST AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! HE HOISTS UP BETHANY AND PLACES HER ON ONE OF HIS SHOULDERS BEFORE GOING TO THROW HER LIKE A FUCKING LAWN DART –

Stew-O: Dr. Bethany Blue slides out of the shoulder of Andre Walker. I’m not sure if that is out of pure luck or if it’s her momentum that brought her down, BUT WITH ALL OF HER MIGHT, SHE SHOVES ANDRE’S SKULL COLLIDES AGAINST THE RING POST! THIS CAUSES HIM TO COLLAPSE TO THE GROUND INSTANTLY. BOTH THE KING OF ELITE AND EMPRESS OF ELITE ARE ON THE GROUND. BETHANY IS RESTING HER BACK AGAINST THE BARRICADE, BUT YOU CAN TELL THAT SHE’S IN A HUGE AMOUNT OF PAIN! Albert Hitchman is checking on Andre, trying to see if he can continue on this match, but at the first twitch of Andre moving, he begins to back away! Bethany gets Andre by the back of his head and smashes his forehead against the steel steps, which causes for his head to bounce back! She begins to rip the steel steps apart from the ring post and she places Andre’s head in between the ring post and steel steps. Oh god, Bethany. Is she –

Flannery McCoy: SHE KICKS IN THE STEEL STEPS! :damn: :damn: :damn: You can see the look of disbelief on Albert Hitchman’s face as he can’t believe that Dr. Bethany Blue had it in her to do that to his beloved ‘golden boy.’ BETHANY TAKES A STEP BACK BEFORE KICKING IN THE STEEL STEPS AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! AND AGAIN! EACH OF THOSE KICKS INTO THOSE STEELS STEPS ARE MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN THE LAST ONE AND THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT BETHANY WAS HOPING TO DO AND WHAT WAS SHOW ANDRE WALKER THAT SHE IS NOT A WASTE OF TIME. THE REFEREE STEPS IN BETWEEN BETHANY AND ANDRE AS HE GOES TO CHECK ON ANDRE.

Jake Mercer: I think that Dr. Bethany Blue may have proven her point. I think that Andre Walker might have a concussion here. Does she not understand that Dynasty has found itself in the big marquee match up picture for the first time since Pain for Pride 12 and it could all go down the drain if Andre legit gets hurt?

Stew-O: I don’t think that Bethany gives a damn, Jake. To her, it’s proven that the crown that she won back at King of Elite deserves to be in the same light as Andre Walker’s crown. She deserves a ton more credit and respect than she believes that she isn’t getting. Dr. Bethany Blue finds herself on top of the apron as she’s looking at Albert Hitchman now. “Is this your golden boy? Is this your King?”

Flannery McCoy: I don’t think that this is the brightest idea for Bethany to do. I think that this is going to push Andre Walker. She is looking to make that ‘king’ into a ‘joker’ real quick as she jumps off the apron and connects with a curbstomp on the skull of Andre! I believe that Bethany calls that the ‘Concussion Protocol!’ Andre’s head bounces on the steel steps as happily, the referee was able to get out of the way at the last second! Bethany gets Andre’s body and you can tell that Andre is out of it at the moment as there is a sign of struggle to get Andre up on the apron! That’s 245 pounds there, Stew and Jake.

Jake Mercer: While it’s no Xander Payne, it’s still troubling to get a giant man up on anything. She is using all of her strength to get Andre up on the apron as she successfully does that. Slowly, Andre rolls himself back inside the ring as Bethany slides underneath the ring afterwards. She pins Andre’s shoulders to the mat! Is Bethany going to get the victory over the King of Elite?

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TTTTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

TTTTT–

Stew-O: Andre Walker with a kick out! Dr. Bethany Blue looks to be quite shocked as she’s trying to clarify with the referee about it being a two count and it is a two count! For me, I was quite surprised to see Andre Walker kick out at the last second! This man is showing a lot of resilience going into this match. There is no keeping someone like Andre Walker down! DR. BETHANY BLUE GETS HERSELF UP TO THE MAT AS IT SEEMS LIKE SHE’S PUTTING ON THE BLACK NITRILE GLOVE AS WE’RE GOING TO BE SEEING HER VARIATION OF THE MANDIBLE CLAW – SHE CALLS THIS ‘SAY AHHHH!’

Flannery McCoy: SHE FINDS HERSELF INTO POSITION AND LOOKS TO APPLY THE FUSION OF THE SCISSORS ARMBAR AND MANDIBLE CLAW THAT SHE CALLS ‘SAY AHHH!’ SHE IS TRYING TO PRESS DOWN ON THAT MANDUBLIAR NERVE, BUT ANDRE IS SCRAMBLING AROUND! ANDRE GETS HIS FOOT ON THE BOTTOM ROPE! AS THE REFEREE HAS NO OTHER CHOICE, BUT TO BEGIN HIS COUNT!

Referee: (off-mic) ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE!

Jake Mercer: That’s just Dr. Bethany Blue’s luck as she thought that she was going to have Andre Walker there, but we saw some wonderful ring awareness from the Interwire Champion and King of Elite. Bethany finds her way to her feet as she is stalking Andre back to his feet! Slowly, he finds himself into a seated position as Bethany rebounds herself from the horizontal set of ropes and looks to connect with ‘Fractured’ again! THE CURBSTOMP ON ANDRE WALKER, BUT HE POPS OUT OF POSITION! ‘KAISER’S TOUCH’ BY ANDRE! THE SUPERMAN PUNCH NAILS THE EMPRESS OF ELITE IN THE MOUTH!

(The camera pans to Dr. Bethany Blue who is holding her mouth before revealing the blood coming out of her mouth. The blood is dripping thanks to the ‘Kaiser’s Touch’ by Andre Walker. Bethany is coughing up a bit more blood, which could be quite concerning. The crowd begins to act in a frenzy when Caroline, the woman that Dr. Bethany Blue had taken underneath her wing and recently ended their little partnership, races from the back and at ringside to check on Bethany.)

Stew-O: What in the world is Caroline doing here? This has nothing to do with her!

Flannery McCoy: Perhaps, this is Caroline’s attempt at getting into the good graces of Dr. Bethany Blue. Last week, we had the exchange between Caroline and Bethany. We saw Caroline putting in the effort in trying to make amends with Bethany.

(Caroline has a white towel in her position as she rolls Bethany out of the ring and sits her on the apron. Caroline is trying to wipe some of the blood that is blocking Dr. Bethany Blue’s vision after she had coughed up some of the blood. Bethany isn’t letting Caroline wipe any of the blood.)

Caroline: (off-mic) You can’t win looking like that, Dr. Bethany. 😕

Dr. Bethany Blue: (off-mic) Caroline, you don’t need to look out for me. I’m no longer your mentor –

Caroline: (off-mic) Dr. Bethany, I want to help you like you helped me with my tooth and with the New Era Classic –

Dr. Bethany Blue: (off-mic) I need you to leave, Caroline. I need to focus on this match and I can do that all on my own –

Jake Mercer: It seems like the time for talking is almost over as Andre Walker grabs Dr. Bethany Blue by her hair and hoist her back inside the ring like a fucking giant! Oh my god, it seems like Andre has Bethany in position before connecting with a sidewalk slam! But, Caroline finds herself on the apron! She’s trying to get Andre Walker’s attention! For a slight second, Andre takes his eyes off of Bethany before focusing on Caroline, who is looking across from him on the apron.

Caroline: (off-mic) Hi, Andre. 👋🏼😳

(Honestly, Caroline may or may not have a crush on Andre Walker, so she really didn’t think far on how she was planning on getting his attention. Meanwhile, Andre looks amused at the situation, but plays along with playfully waving at the petite blonde. Caroline blows a kiss to Andre as he turns around –)

Stew-O: ANDRE WALKER GETS NAILED WITH A ‘TJD’ SUPERKICK, BUT HE DUCKS AT THE LAST SECOND AS DR. BETHANY BLUE NAILS CAROLINE IN THE FACE INSTEAD. CAROLINE FALLS OFF THE APRON AS BETHANY CAN’T SEEM TO BELIEVE THAT SHE NAILED CAROLINE. CAROLINE DID NOTHING TO DESERVE THIS, BUT SHE WAS AT THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME. BETHANY HAS HER PRIORITIES ON TRYING TO WIN THIS MATCH SO, SHE’S NOT REALLY GOING TO TAKE THE TIME TO SHOW MUCH CONCERN AS SHE TURNS AROUND –

Flannery McCoy: ‘HUNGER ON HILLSIDE’ – THE SPEAR RIPS DR. BETHANY BLUE IN HALF! ANDRE WALKER WITH THE COVER!

OOOOOOONNNNNNNEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

TTTTTTTWWWWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHHHRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Leaving Caladan” plays once again as Andre Walker rolls off of Dr. Bethany Blue. Albert Hitchman meets his client in the ring, placing the King of Elite crown on the top of his head and the Interwire Championship on his shoulder, raising his hand in victory.)

Stephie Love: THE WINNER OF THIS MATCH…THE 2022 KING OF ELITE AND EAW INTERWIRE CHAMPION…ANDRE WALKER!!!!!!

Jake Mercer: Once again, Andre Walker picks up the victory over the Empress of Elite, Dr. Bethany Blue.

Stew-O: Another performance of Andre Walker going through hell with his skull and STILL pulling off the victory. Dr. Bethany Blue looked as ruthless as possible. I would hope that she managed to show Andre that she is not a waste of time and deserves a lot of credit, but man, Bethany could have really won the match without all of the factors like Caroline meddling in her situation.

Flannery McCoy: I felt like Caroline came into the end of this match with trying to help Dr. Bethany Blue and get in her good graces, but she instead cost her the match. A very important match that could have provided her some direction to where her spot at Pain for Pride is.

(Andre Walker raises the Interwire Championship over his head, mouthing a message to The Visual Prophet, who may or may not be watching this match from the back. Then, he and Albert Hitchman exit the ring. His entrance music plays a bit longer before it pans to Dr. Bethany Blue being checked on by Caroline. The music dies down as the crowd is focused on the two women inside the ring. Caroline is lifting Bethany up to her feet. The blood on her mouth still showing.)

Caroline: (off-mic) I am so sorry, Dr. Bethany. I was only trying to help. 😥

(At this point, Dr. Bethany Blue is speechless and angry at herself for not being able to pick up the victory. Not only that, but with her feelings of not being respected and her opportunity to prove she belongs in a Pain for Pride main event seemingly fumbled. Caroline is nervous and fumbling on her words, trying to find the right things to say.)

Caroline: (off-mic) You looked like a million bucks out here! You’ll get him next time! 😅

(Caroline does the whole friendly, optimistic punch to the arm, but by the look on Dr. Bethany Blue’s face, she’s more than tired of hearing those kind of words from people in the back and what not. You can tell that she wanted to win tonight and prove that the Empress of Elite deserved a lot more respect. She wanted to prove that she was a future World Champion and deserved her moment in the sun.)

Caroline: (off-mic) Dr. Bethany, why do you have that look on your face? :lupe:

Jake Mercer: DR. BETHANY BLUE JUST CONNECTED WITH A FOREARM SMASH TO THE MOUTH OF CAROLINE! THAT JUST CAUSED THE YOUNG WOMAN TO DROP TO THE GROUND AS BETHANY BEGINS TO UNLOAD ON CAROLINE WITH A SERIES OF PUNCHES TO THE FACE AND BODY! CAROLINE IS DOING EVERYTHING IN HER POWER TO COVER HER FACE! CAROLINE IS SCREAMING, TRYING TO GET OUT OF BETHANY’S GRASP. BUT, BETHANY GETS CAROLINE UP, LOOKING HER IN THE FACE –

Dr. Bethany Blue: (off-mic) You want to be mentored, Caroline? We’ll let me give you some advice –

Stew-O: Dr. Bethany Blue gets thrown to the steel ring post at one of the corners! Bethany gets the blonde and throws her out of the corner and onto her back!

Dr. Bethany Blue: (off-mic) You should have listened to me when I said that we were done.

Flannery McCoy: You can see that Caroline is rolling herself out of harm’s way or away from Dr. Bethany Blue! I don’t think that she expected for the matters with Bethany to go down the way that they are! Caroline wanted to help Bethany, but that backfired tonight! SHE IS TRYING TO USE THE APRON TO GET HERSELF TO HER FEET AS BETHANY IS ON THE APRON AS SHE CONNECTS WITH A FLYING KNEE DROP ON CAROLINE AS THAT KNOCKS HER TO HER BACK! BETHANY GETS CAROLINE TO HER FEET BEFORE BATTERY RAMMING HER AGAINST THE BARRICADE! THE CROWD ISN’T LIKING THIS WHATSOEVER! CAROLINE IS REFUSING TO PUT HER HANDS ON BETHANY!

Jake Mercer: That’s a unique observation there, Flannery. Caroline could have fought Dr. Bethany Blue at any point of this altercation, but she doesn’t want to do that. Caroline is trying to cover herself as Bethany is kicking her in the gut! Caroline needs to defend herself somehow! This is becoming a mauling –

Stew-O: CAROLINE SHOVES DR. BETHANY BLUE AS THE CROWD GOES WILD! CAROLINE RACES TO BETHANY, BUT BETHANY CONNECTS WITH A DROP TOE HOLD ON CAROLINE –

(The screams of Caroline pierce through the arena as the crowd goes silent in concern from the blonde. The camera catches Caroline crashing onto the steel steps, but focuses on her right eye, which caught the edge of the steel step. Caroline is covering her eye as the referee races to check up on her. The referee calls for backup on his walkie talkie and that’s how you know how bad the situation is. Dr. Bethany Blue has an emotionless look on her face as the medical personnel race to Caroline’s aid.)

Flannery McCoy: I have no idea what went through Dr. Bethany Blue’s mind, but I don’t think that she meant to do that. It was just poor awareness of her surroundings and sadly, Caroline couldn’t catch her fall on time before her right eye was pierced through corner of the steel step.

Jake Mercer: This is concerning.

(The referee asks Dr. Bethany Blue to exit the ringside area. Bethany doesn’t fight with them, so she begins to walk up the arena. The crowd is booing her on her way up. The last glimpse of this whole altercation is Sweet Caroline holding her right eye and refusing for anyone to look at it.)

(A commercial is shown for the Abel Atami Fanclub starring Roberto De La Rosa.)

(“Partition (Smearcase Trap Remix)” by Beyonce hits. After a moment the name on the titantron is revealed as the bold letters “KASSIDY HEART” pop up and the crowd explodes in boos, Kassidy Heart makes her way out with her new brunette hairstyle, but same stoic expression as she struts her way down to the ring not giving any attention to the rabid ringside fans in awe of her.)

Flannery McCoy: Kassidy Heart defeated 5 other women last week as she punched her ticket to a Pain for Pride main event against Andrea Valentine in what is sure to be a blockbuster matchup between the top two women in this division! Kassidy had quite the year in 2021 and going into 2022 she capped it off by breaking records before eventually dropping her title to TLA, however, it’s clear that she was not content with just disappearing in the wind and letting others have their turn, she went straight for her next goal!

Stew-O: I can’t say that I blame her. If Kassidy Heart is one thing, she’s ambitious and she is unapologetic about that. She knows what she wants and she does what it takes to get it. This is why she’s been able to be so successful in her career, it only makes sense that she continues to have her foot on the gas for more success.

Jake Mercer: Kassidy is not here for the games and she stood face to face with the #EAW15 movement and said “party’s over grandma!”, and here we are!

Flannery McCoy: But isn’t she the same ag–

Jake Mercer: Just go with it lady damn.

(As “Partition” dies down, Kassidy stands in the middle of the ring microphone in hand, ready to speak.)

Kassidy Heart: …..Did you really expect anything else? I mean, let’s be real here. But before I even deep dive into my victory at Battle of Egypt, let’s go back to the very first time you saw me that night. I came out alongside my partner Sienna Jade and we crashed the party in the Tag Team Championship match and yes, we screwed The High Rollerz over. All we heard over the past several weeks of these flip-flopping overrated assholes being back was about how great of an all-time team they are and it’s as if we had never won the tag team of the decade award that solidified the Jaded Hearts as the greatest tag team of all time. So when we had that unpleasant exchange with them the night I first visited Dynasty and Sienna made her return, we knew then and there what we wanted, and that was a match against them to prove we were indeed the best team in the history of this business and end any debates. We knew exactly when to strike and send the message and make the first move, and Battle of Egypt was the date that had been circled on our calendars for quite a while. When we attacked them and cost them the match, we made the mistake of assuming that they would want to strike back and be out for revenge resulting in a match. Instead you wanna know what happened? David Davidson– yes, the guy who has been propped up and advertised as being the uNpRoBlEmAtIc logical thinking peacekeeping angel who wouldn’t hurt a fly took his ball and he went home after suffering his the first bit of adversity that came his way. In other words, HE QUIT EAW. He once again left his partner Jack Ripley hanging to fend for himself and turned his back on this company after they gave him an opportunity to redeem himself and repair the broken legacy of his overrated tag team after the first time he exited from this company with a “knee injury”. There wasn’t a so-called knee injury this time he could use as an excuse this time though. The only thing broken in this instance was his ego. He walked out on this company twice and proved exactly why The High Rollerz never deserved to win tag team of the decade in the first place.

Kassidy Heart: So the “dream match” of Jaded Hearts vs High Rollerz won’t be happening, like ever in life.. and that’s completely fine. I’m sure Sienna and I will team up again at some point down the line and continue to build on our already GOAT legacy as a team but in the meanwhile, I can now put 100% of my focus into singles endeavors and the latest task at hand. I don’t have to spell it out for everybody seeing as how you all saw it. To nobody’s surprise, Kassidy Heart came out on top in the 6-woman ladder match and punched her card to a Pain for Pride main event match against Andrea Valentine for the Universal Women’s Championship. Now I know it might have come as a shock to a lot of people to even be pursuing this title again or pursuing a world title in general since I had literally just come off of a history-making nearly year-long reign as Answers World Champion but why would I settle and take a back seat? I want more. That’s the thing about me, you should expect the unexpected. When people think they know what my next move is, they actually don’t. Besides, I couldn’t sit here and allow for the Women’s Championship match to be represented by somebody who ONLY came back through this #EAW15 nonsense and doesn’t deserve to be in a spot like that. Also, two-time Universal Women’s Champion sounds really nice next to my name. I’d show the world how you’re supposed to correctly carry yourself as an actual legitimate two-time Universal Women’s Champion. And before somebody brings up the other dumbass who held the title two times, I mean two legitimate reigns that don’t have asterisks next to one of them and won’t have that honor disgraced by fucking off to some knockoff company 5 months after dropping the title which only torpedoed her own legacy.

Kassidy Heart: Now my opponent at Pain for Pride is a recent announcement for the Hall of Fame, the class I’m headlining by the way, but nonetheless she is a woman who has held her own and built up quite the legacy for herself over the past five years. Some of you may look at Andrea and her overall legacy and see this match and tout this as a matchup of the two greatest female elitists of this generation. Two strong willed women with packed trophy cases going head to head for the opportunity to prove who the true superior woman of this generation is! (Kassidy says this in a sarcastic tone) …..And I honestly can’t do anything but shake my head at the notion of something as ridiculous as me needing to “prove” anything against the likes of Andrea Valentine. I acknowledge what she’s been able to do for herself here in EAW which pretty much makes her the most accomplished female of the modern day behind me, however, Andrea always has and always will exist to be nothing more than the not as good alternative to Kassidy Heart. So you can kill the narratives now. I’m not going into this match looking at an equal or a formidable foe, I’m looking at my next victim. I’ve made it abundantly clear that the Kassidy you see today isn’t the same Kassidy from back in the days on Empire and even back then I beat you so just imagine what I’m going to do at this point in my career when I’m about 50 times the competitor that I was back then. At Pain for Pride I’m looking to dominate my way into winning my third world championship here in EAW and I’m willing to accomplish my goal by any means necessary. If Andrea wants to put up a fight, that’s fine and it won’t be anything that I haven’t dealt with before but I don’t plan on holding back and doing what needs to be done even if I have to bite your face off in order to do it—

(“Roll With Me” by Charli XCX hits to a huge pop from the Kenya crowd as Andrea Valentine makes her way through the curtain and down the ramp with her championship around her waist. A enthusiastic Andrea slaps hands with fans in the crowd and eventually makes her way to the ring to stand across from Kassidy, microphone in hand ready to address her.)

Flannery McCoy: And it looks like Andrea has finally heard enough here! The recently announced Hall of Famer looks as confident as ever even going against a competitor the caliber of Kassidy Heart!

Stew-O: Heart of a champion. Andrea has every reason to be as confident as she is, she’s no underdog here these two women are the cream of the crop when it comes to womens wrestling here in EAW. They have BOTH made their fair share of history, broken boundaries, and the whole nine. That’s what makes this matchup so special! It can honestly go either way!

Jake Mercer: It’s almost as special as the first time they met up back in PCW, PAWG Championship Wrestling where they had a 5 minute classic!

Stew-O: 5 minutes?

Jake Mercer: Well it was actually more like 30, but I only lasted 5.. don’t ask me how!

Flannery McCoy: 🤦‍♀️

(Andrea takes a moment to soak in the reaction from the crowd as they are excitedly riled up and rowdy for the face to face confrontation for two of the top women in all of EAW. After a few moments she begins speaking.)

Andrea Valentine: Two weeks ago we had a brief exchange while I addressed you alongside the rest of your 5 opponents at the time going into the ladder match. I made it abundantly clear that if we did meet, my goal was to prove that I’m every bit as deserving of a Hall of Fame induction as you are and now here we are and I’ve been announced as the latest inductee into the class😌. Now I didn’t expect you to come out here and kiss up to me and even acknowledge the fact that I am on your level, your ego wouldn’t allow that. But yes the fact is I am on your level if not above your level actually, and let’s not get it confused here Kassidy.. you’re the challenger and I’m the champion. I’ve been holding things down for this division and being the much needed representation and being the leading example while you’ve been on Showdown cosplaying as Jason Vorhees. When it comes down to it, I don’t have any shame and I’m not too proud to admit that you’re a helluva competitor and I respect what you’ve been able to do here in EAW to build a legacy for yourself, but when it comes down to it, I’m still better than you🤷🏻‍♀️. Those are just the facts. I have amassed all of this on my own merit, I didn’t have a Sienna Jade to come into the company alongside and learn from before breaking out into my own. I didn’t have the literal chairman of the board coerce me into a marriage and partnership that would result in even more focus on the development of myself as a competitor and person. There’s no around the clock team created to cater to building me into the ideal fighting machine of the man who owns this company. I don’t have a personality disorder or alterego to tap into in order to give me a competitive edge, I’ve done this all on my own merit. I also don’t need to remind people that I’ve stuck with this company through thick and thin and outlasted several others. In other words, you’ve been incredibly high maintenance over these past several years just to still not be as good as Andrea Valentine🤭.

Kassidy Heart: I was hoping since I was facing somebody as revered as yourself that I wouldn’t have to deal with the repetitive comments about my marriage but this is exactly why I don’t look at you any differently than I would look at any other competitor. I was punching down in the ladder match and I’m punching down here. You can’t seriously think you’re as good as me or as successful as me or have any chance at beating me at Pain for Pride. You don’t. It’s really easy to sit there and say you don’t need something that was never going to give you the time of day in the first place. I never asked Sienna to team with me just like I never asked Daddygawd to handpick me to be his babycake and wife and mother of our beautiful children🥰 it just happened.

(Andrea can be seen visibly cringing)

Kassidy Heart: This is what happens when you’re somebody who people want to associate with. I clearly have always had that it-factor to me that made special people gravitate towards me and I have no shame in that. If anything you should have shame in the fact that you have the personality of a chalk board and that’s probably why you havent generated half of the notoriety or popularity that I have over the years. It sounds to me like we have a case of jealousy. You’re right though, you’ve stuck it out here through thick and thin through all of the trials and tribulations. The hype machines for other women who have come and gone. The mental breakdowns, the backstage drama that could have pulled you in a different direction but you stood firm in your convictions and here you are with an induction into the Hall of Fame while women’s champ. Hows it feel to know that even then you’re still in my shadow? You mentioned how we’ve come a long way from that tag match at Terminus and you’re right. But I’ve gone so much further. Now that I think about it though, part of me feels like you’ve been feeling a certain way ever since then. Up until that point, you were the shiny new toy of Empire, the girl deemed as the future face of the womens division and then those REVOLT freeweights kicked through the door and while a lot of girls partook in the catty attempts to alienate us backstage, you didn’t but you knew your spot was in danger. For as much of a shitty clusterfuck of a disaster that match was, it was also in a sense my coming out party where I showed I could tap into another level and keep up with the best women EAW had to offer at the time and little did they know I was barely scratching the surface of what I was capable of. From that point on, you were the other blonde girl on Empire. It’s no surprise that while we’ve had some passing interactions over the past 4 and a half years, we haven’t had any full fledged issues like what we are about to embark on going into Pain for Pride. You’ve ducked me your whole career.

Andrea Valentine: That’s certainly one way to look at things, as delusional as that perspective might be. I understand why you might feel the way you do about our lack of interactions or your assumption of what my personal opinion on you has been over all this time. Let’s get it straight though, Andrea Valentine has never been jealous of anybody. Believe it or not though, I don’t spend my time thinking about other women and obsessing over their progress in comparison to mine. I don’t keep tabs on them or clock their moves or sit there and garner resentment, hatred, or jealousy for any other woman in this business doing what they have to do whether they’re somebody who comes from humble beginnings or somebody who comes in with a machine behind them. I literally just focus on myself and what I can do to sustain MY momentum and success here and everything falls in place from there. I don’t sit there and complain about management favoring others over me like some people do because I’m not looking for management to control my destiny. I get things done on my own merit and that’s always been the way things have gone for me. When you came into this company via the merge with REVOLT, I was just interested in being able to fight a lot of new competition. Regardless of who came and went I knew I would be around and I would continue to get better at my craft no matter what was thrown at me. Sienna came through the door, Astraea made a return, Raven came along.. and of course there was you. You all made your respective impacts in your own way but that has never been to the detriment of my own career or success. There’s a reason why I was deemed as ”The Heart of Empire” while you were all on it. I’m sorry we haven’t had an extensive back and forth before until now I guess? Better late than never. Us two meeting at the apex of our careers, in our primes in legend status after achieving all we have achieved over the years at the biggest stage possibly is a helluva way to finally truly get acquainted with one another and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I don’t know, maybe you should try to see things from another perspective instead of being so cynical?

Kassidy Heart: “The Heart of Empire”, “The Beating Hearts of Voltage”… but sure management favoritism was never a part of your success. You can dismiss the fact that you’ve avoided me for most of your career but the funny part about it is I don’t even look at it as a bad thing. You made a business decision, a move that any person with sense would do. Clearly you’ve lost that sense. You have it in your head that you can match up with me and that you’re my equal but you’re not and you have no idea the danger that lies ahead for you. For me, this isn’t a battle of two modern day legends who look to put an exclamation point on their Hall of Fame campaigns… this is simply predator and prey. I flat out don’t like you Andrea. I don’t like the horrible logic that we must be contemporaries because we share a Hall of Fame class. I don’t like the false rhetoric you’re spouting about how I’ve supposedly had an easier journey to success because of my supporting cast when in reality you were the original product of the EAW hype machine back in late 2017-early 2018 before the better versions came in a few months later. You’re exactly one of those women who a board member said would “get theirs” before any of the REVOLT women had a chance to eat. And you got yours in the form of a Openweight Championship… and failed. I’m sure that failure lit a fire under you to make you become the competitor you are today but the idea that I’ve seemingly had it easier than you because of who I managed to marry after I had already surpassed you is bullshit. I had to work my ass off twice as hard as you to get noticed here and overcome the stigma that came with being a freeweight, or even the stigma that came with being Sienna’s partner, now I have to deal with predictable opponents telling me every other week that I got everything based on who I’m married to as if I’m not the one in these matches dominating off of my own merit.

Andrea Valentine: Seems like those billion dollar training teams are paying off then. Maybe I did come into EAW with “hype”, but it was up to me to live up to that or surpass that. I didn’t have my hand held through anything, I was the one who dealt with the public embarrassment of losing in the first round of the Empress of Elite tournament (a smirk comes on Kassidy’s face after hearing that), or losing the Openweight Championship, or hell even losing to Madison Kaline for the Women’s Championship. There’s been a lot of trial and error that has come with making it to the point where I can stand here and say I’m the success that I am today, but that’s all a part of the “process” isn’t it? I’m not ashamed of my past or the trials and tribulations it took to get here. Can you say the same? I’m at a point in my career where I can say I’ve hit my stride and I’m ready for whatever comes my way whether that be regular old Kassidy Heart or The Mauler herself😱.. it’s going to take a lot more than you throwing temper tantrums and biting like a child to knock my off of my A-game. You might look at this as an opportunity to add to your already stacked trophy case, and that’s cool, but what I’m fighting for is a lot more important than statpadding. You know what it’s like to win a Pain for Pride main event, I don’t and that’s one thing you can say you have over me. We can play the “I beat so and so and you lost to so and so” game if you want, but I know that my sheer will and determination to correct that one blemish in my career will trump any opponent you’ve faced in years past.

Kassidy Heart: You can be as determined as you want. I feed off of crushing dreams and turning them into nightmares. Keep invoking The Mauler if you want and you’re going to get exactly what you’re asking for.

Andrea Valentine: I said what I said. I’m ready for anything. This has been a very long time coming and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to be the one to finally put you down and sedate you.

Kassidy Heart: Keep dreaming, it’s not going to be nearly as simple as you think it will be. But that’s on you to find out for yourself. Just keep that energy, it’ll be great to see that look on your face when I knock some sense into you and show you just how far from my level you actually are. Name whatever accomplishments you want, make whatever excuses you want, only one of us standing in this ring is a force of nature capable of making opponents bend to their will. The other is a harmless little girl who has gotten by off of being the “safe” option. You’re not safe anymore and I hope you understand that. Keep my title warm for me though.

Andrea Valentine: I’m shaking in my boots. Unlike you, I’m not delusional enough to think this is going to be some easy task where I run through my opponent so there’s no rude awakening to be had on my end. I’m every bit as battle tested as you are though. I’m absolutely ready for the war ahead and whatever stops you want to pull out in order to get the advantage, I’ll do what it takes on my end as well and I’m confident enough to know that when it’s all said and done I’ll still be walking out with MY title in tact. You’ll have put up a good fight for sure.. but it simply won’t be enough. Nice hair by the way. 😉

(Andrea Valentine and Kassidy Heart intensely come face to face and start arguing with one another off mic as “Roll With Me” picks up. Andrea has her title held high in the air as both women stand firm with the confidence of a Hall of Famer and multiple time world champion.)

(A commercial is shown Andre Walker and his younger caucasian brother Andrew Walker. They swear they are two different people, but are they really?)

(Friday Night Dynasty comes back from the final commercial break of the night as the camera goes over to show Stephie Love standing at the center of the ring with a smile on her face. She has a microphone in her hand as she brings it up and begins to speak.)

Stephie Love: Ladies and gentlemen, the following is your MAIN EVENT!!! And it is a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH scheduled for…

Crowd: ONE FALL!!!

(‘Back To Life” By Soul II Soul begins to blast through the speakers of the arena as the camera goes over from the ring to the stage to show The Visual Prophet make his way out. He has a bunch of souvenirs on him from the festival he was at while the World Heavyweight Championship is seen resting on his shoulder. With a smirk on his face, he takes his Championship and raises it into the air before, from there, beginning to make his way down the ramp and towards the ring.)

Stephie Love: Introducing first… residing in Engadine, Michigan… weighing in at 265 pounds… ‘THE FOUNDER OF THE VISUAL PROPHET LEADERSHIP ACADEMY’… he is the EAW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION… THE VISUAL PROPHET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: Well we saw earlier in the night the Interwire Champion Andre Walker kicked off the show. It was then that he called out The Visual Prophet… but he didn’t show up. Instead, he was at a festival somewhere away from the arena. Now, back from his celebration, he walks into the main event of Dynasty looking to get a victory under his belt against some tough competition.

Flannery McCoy: Well we know Andre is in the arena tonight, who knows if his displeasure from earlier is going to seep through in this match, leading to him making his presence known. Or maybe we’ll see the match go about as normal. The possibilities are endless, but right now, I don’t think Viz seems to care that much.

Jake Mercer: Why wouldn’t he??? He’s THE Champion, he’s adapted to situations like these. There is no doubt in my mind whatever is thrown his way he will CONQUER.

(‘It Follows’ by Cane Hill then begins to play up while the camera then goes over to show a serious looking Xander Payne make his way out from the backstage area. He has a determined expression on his face, looking dead at the ring. He closes his eyes and takes a deep breath, before popping his neck and giving a battle cry as he then begins to make his way to the ring.)

Stephie Love: And his opponents, first… from Toronto, Ontario, Canada… weighing in at 240 pounds… ‘THE PAYNEKILLER’… XANDER PAYNE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: Well lets just say this past week has been very eventful for Xander. Not only has he found himself confirmed to be inducted into the EAW Hall of Fame, at the same time, he has also set his sights on one Ronn Banks heading into Pain For Pride. Earlier in the night he stated his intentions, and now he walks into the main event looking to make a statement amidst that.

Flannery McCoy: Imagine if Xander gets a victory over two World Champions, it would be huge for him especially considering his thoughts on how his career has gone lately. He believes that since he lost the World Championship he hasn’t been doing the hottest. Now this is his rebound, let’s see if his dreams come to fruition tonight.

Jake Mercer: You know, speaking of Xander being in the EAW Hall of Fame, I was thinking of what the next induction might be. One of my first candidates right off the bat was Black Shamrock-

Stew-O: No.

Jake Mercer: Sorry.

(‘Roll With Me’ by Charli XCX is then heard playing up to the loud cheers of the crowd upon seeing Andrea Valentine making her way out to the stage, raising her Universal Women’s Championship high into the air with a bright smile on her face. She takes a moment to point around at the excited EAW Universe before bringing her Championship down onto her shoulder. From there, she then begins to make her way down the ramp and towards the ring.)

Stephie Love: Lastly… from Orlando, Florida… weighing in at 110 pounds… she is the EAW UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION!!!!!!! ANDREA VALENTINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stew-O: Speaking of EAW Hall of Fame inductions, yesterday we got word that Andrea would be the next inductee after Xander Payne into the illustrious 2022 class. Especially as Universal Women’s Champion, that has to be illustrious for her. Along with that, it also makes the Pain For Pride match against fellow Hall of Famer Kassidy Heart all the more exciting and prestigious in the process. And I’m sure it will be a spectacle to behold.

Flannery McCoy: But right now Andrea has her sights set on something else, and that’s the big main event that she’s participating in right now. She needs to keep her head in the game if she’s looking to win and right now, she’s looking as determined as ever to get to work against her two opponents. It’s going to be one hell of a challenge, especially with a fellow World Champion in this match, but Andrea isn’t unfamiliar to these two Elitists. She knows what she’s up against, and I have no doubt she’s up for the task at hand.

Jake Mercer: She better be, I bet some good money on her to win and I’m looking to make some huge money off gambling just like my man Ronan Malosi! I”M WINNING BIG BAY BEE!

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew-O: The bell has rung and here we go, as this star-studded triple threat match is officially underway folks! RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE XANDER PAYNE LAUNCHES FORWARD AND GOES FOR A RUNNING LARIAT TO THE HEAD OF ANDREA VALENTINE- But Andrea ducks under that before beginning to send quick kicks aimed towards the right kneecap of Xander! This leaves the former World Heavyweight Champion hobbling for a moment while Andrea pushes him against the ropes and sends him towards the opposite side… LAUNCHING INTO THE AIR AND CONNECTING WITH A DROPKICK TO THE CHEST WHICH SENDS XANDER DOWN TO A SEATED POSITION! Andrea isn’t done though turning around and rebounding off of the ropes… BEFORE CONNECTING WITH A KNEE STRIKE THIS TIME TO THE FACE OF XANDER WHICH SENDS HIM DOWN COMPLETELY!

Flannery McCoy: While all of this is happening, The Visual Prophet seems to be lounging in the corner, and honestly I can’t really blame him. Let your opponents exert their energy and when the time is right, that’s when you strike. But I don’t think Viz has that luxury for long though, as Andrea immediately notices him and runs his way, GOING FOR A JUMPING FOREARM STRIKE TO THE FACE- But it’s Viz that manages to move out of the way of that before grabbing Andrea and pushing her into the corner! Viz engages- But Andrea clocks him right against the head in retaliation with a forearm strike! That takes Viz back, ONLY FOR HIM TO RUN FORWARD AND CONNECT WITH A BRUTAL SHOULDER THRUST TOWARDS THE ABDOMEN OF ANDREA! Viz now grabs a hold of the head of Andrea before throwing her down towards the center of the ring, RUNNING TOWARDS HER AND CONNECTING WITH A SHOULDER TACKLE THIS TIME TO TAKE HER DOWN!

Jake Mercer: Andrea takes a hard fall which is sure to take her out of commission for the time being, Viz is getting back up to his feet- Only for Xander to swoop in and connect with an axe handle to the back of his head! Viz is stunned momentarily and is kept down to a kneeling position, before Xander grabs him by the head and pulls him up before connecting with a forearm strike to the face! Viz is taken aback but steps forward and goes for a forearm of his own- Only for Xander to connect with a spin kick to the abdomen which continues to send him backward! Viz, out of desperation, falls against the ropes, BEFORE GOING FOR A CLOTHESLINE TO THE FACE OF XANDER- But Xander ducks under that before grabbing the arm of Viz, turning him around and pulling him in, SPIKING HIS HEAD DOWN ONTO THE CANVAS WITH A DDT!

Stew-O: Xander is now back up and turning his attention over to Andrea, looking to give her a piece of the action as well. Xander grabs her by the hair- But before anything else can happen it’s Andrea that manages to send a few well-placed shots towards the abdomen of Xander derailing him momentarily! Andrea brings the fight to Xander and that’s not something he’s exactly pleased with, AS HE GOES FOR A KNEE STRIKE TOWARDS THE FACE- But before that can connect Andrea manages to move out of the way! Xander falls against the ropes and tries to recover while Andrea turns around and runs to the ropes and back… BEFORE LAUNCHING HERSELF INTO THE AIR AND TAKING XANDER DOWN TO THE MAT WITH A HURRICANRANA! Xander rolls down to the mat into a seated position while Andrea now runs to the ropes again… GOING FOR A DROPKICK TO THE BACK OF HIS HEAD TO TAKE HIM DOWN-

Flannery McCoy: But that doesn’t happen as Xander reaches out and clutches a hold of the bottom rope, instantly pulling himself out of the ring before the move can connect! Andrea falls flat on the mat but in an instant pops herself up to her feet knowing that Xander has retreated and could attack at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile it seems Viz is using the ropes to lean against while he recovers, but Andrea takes notice of that as well and turns around before making her way towards him- But before she can do anything it’s Viz that connects with a back elbow to the face! Andrea falls backward towards the center of the ring while Viz approaches her and throws her towards the ropes with an Irish whip… WAITING FOR HER TO REBOUND BEFORE GRABBING ANDREA AND LIFTING HER INTO THE AIR WITH A BACK BODY DROP! Viz now turning around and looking towards Xander on the outside, beginning to make his way towards the edge of the ring to take care of him now-

(CRACK!)

Jake Mercer: XANDER JUST TOOK A STEEL CHAIR FROM UNDER THE RING AND SMASHED IT AGAINST THE SKULL OF THE VISUAL PROPHET! Remember this is a triple threat match, these types of matches do not fall under the rules of a normal one-on-one. Xander slides back into the ring while Viz crawls away, knowing the situation that he’s in right now.

(CRACK!)

Jake Mercer: BUT XANDER ISN’T GOING TO LET HIM DO THAT AS HE TAKES THE CHAIR ONCE AGAIN AND SMACKS IT AGAINST THE SPINE OF THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! Viz giving of a cry of pain and if that previous shot from Xander didn’t take him out of commission, that one sure did. Xander takes the chair before making his way towards Andrea this time who is slowly beginning to rise up, BEFORE LOOKING TO DRIVE IT INTO HER ABDOMEN- But before that can happen it’s Andrea that manages to side-step before grabbing a hold of the chair and yanking it away from Xander! Andrea drops the chair down to the ground while Xander stumbles forward, FALLING RIGHT INTO A HIGH KNEE TO THE FACE BY ANDREA! Xander dropping down to a kneeling position in response, ONLY FOR ANDREA TO GRAB A HOLD OF HIM AND CONNECT WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG THIS TIME TO TAKE HIM OUT!

Stew-O: Viz is in a seated position while Andrea runs towards him this time, GOING FOR A SLIDING D TO THE HEAD- But Viz manages to move out of the way of that before clutching onto the ropes and get himself back up to his feet, while Andrea does the same thing. Both of them are back up, WHILE ANDREA GOES FOR A BOOT TO THE FACE- But Viz manages to grab that as he grabs a hold of the other leg, before lifting Andrea up… BEFORE SPINNING AROUND AND DRIVING ANDREA DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! VIZ HOLDING HIS POSITION AS HE PINS ANDREA’S SHOULDERS TO THE MAT!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

Flannery McCoy: BUT ANDREA GETS THE SHOULDER UP BEFORE THREE! Viz pushes her away before getting back up to his feet, beginning to make his way towards Andrea once more- BUT XANDER FROM BEHIND CLOBBERING VIZ WITH A FOREARM AND FORCING HIM DOWN TO A KNEELING POSITION! Viz is stunned while Xander grabs a hold of him, BRINGING HIM UP BEFORE DROPPING HIM DOWN INTO AN INVERTED DDT! Xander isn’t done with Viz though running the ropes and back, BEFORE LEAPING INTO THE AIR AND GOING FOR A RUNNING SENTON TO THE GUT! WHICH CONNECTS!

Jake Mercer: Xander doesn’t seem to be done as he’s right back up… GOING FOR ANOTHER SENTON FOR GOOD MEASURE- BUT THIS ONE DOESN’T CONNECT! Viz manages to move out of the way before falling backward against the ropes, using them to get back up to his feet. Xander is in pain but still uses the power vested in him to get back to his feet, BEFORE LOOKING TO SEND HIM OVER THE TOP ROPE WITH A HUGE CLOTHESLINE- BUT VIZ MANAGES TO PULL THE ROPES DOWN SENDING XANDER OVER THE TOP ROPE AND DOWN TO THE RINGSIDE AREA!

Stew-O: Xander flies into the air before falling flat on the ringside padding and you know that just had to hurt! While most people would take this time to catch their breath, Viz is immediately rolling out of the ring and grabbing a hold of the head of Xander, THROWING HIM SPINE FIRST INTO THE BARRICADE! Xander crumbles to the ground in pain while Viz lifts him back up, THROWING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE ONE MORE TIME! Xander is certainly feeling each of these and I think Viz is going to finish this off with a trifecta, grabbing Xander and once again dragging him back out…

Flannery McCoy: WAIT! ON THE TOP ROPE! ANDREA VALENTINE POSITIONS HERSELF BEFORE LAUNCHING OFF AND TAKING DOWN BOTH XANDER AND VIZ WITH A CROSSBODY! BOTH OF THEM ARE TAKEN DOWN BY ANDREA’S HIGH-RISK MANEUVER AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION IS BACK IN THIS MATCH! Andrea grabs a hold of Xander before rolling him into the ring, sliding in behind him as she looks to set him up… ‘VALENTINE’S MASSACRE’! HANDSTAND HEADSCISSORS DRIVER TAKES A KNEELING XANDER DOWN ONCE MORE WHILE ANDREA ROLLS HIM ONTO HIS BACK! HOOKING THE LEG! PIN ATTEMPT! COULD THIS BE IT?!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHHRRRRRRREE-

Jake Mercer: BUT IT’S XANDER THAT MANAGES TO KICK OUT! Andrea doesn’t look all that surprised on the matter, rather more relieved that she finds herself back in this match. Xander is barely showing signs of life right now but the energy that he has left is being used to slowly drag himself away from Andrea while he has the chance, realizing that he is not in a good position and is just going to have to find a way to get himself back on track. Andrea makes her way over to Xander, looking to do some more damage- BUT WAIT! XANDER JUST TOOK THAT STEEL CHAIR FROM EARLIER AND CHUCKED IT AT THE HEAD OF ANDREA!

Stew-O: Andrea is taken aback, and while the impact isn’t the worst it surely has left her stunned which gives Xander enough time to get back up to his feet. ANDREA GOES FOR A CLOTHESLINE- BUT XANDER DUCKS UNDER THAT BEFORE MEETING ANDREA WITH A SUPERKICK! Andrea is taken down while Xander stumbles backward- ONLY FOR VIZ TO SLIDE INTO THE RING AND CONNECT WITH A HARD-HITTING FOREARM STRIKE TO THE BACK OF THE HEAD! Viz isn’t done as he grabs Xander and brings him up to his feet, bringing him onto his shoulders… BEFORE TAKING XANDER DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A ‘PROPHET DRIVER’! THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER CONNECTS-

Flannery McCoy: NO! Xander manages to slip off of the shoulders of Viz, XANDER THEN GRABS A HOLD OF HIM BEFORE TAKING HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A HUGE REVERSE JUDO TAKEDOWN! Xander is now looking to follow that up… CONNECTING WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK TO VIZ TO TAKE HIM DOWN! Xander turning around- ONLY FOR ANDREA TO HAVE RECOVERED AND CONNECTED WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK OF HER OWN! Andrea then grabs Xander by the head, BEFORE SLAMMING HIM BACK DOWN TO THE MAT! Both men are down while Andrea is the only one up, taking this time to think over what she can do next, and she has to be careful. While one person is down she has to face the issue of handling the other person, which seems to be the case right now with The Visual Prophet beginning to slowly get back up to his feet, clutching at his head in pain and seemingly unknowing of whatever Andrea is going to throw at him right now. Andrea grabs a hold of him, before sending a forearm towards the face of Viz! That certainly woke him up as Viz steps back, and connects with a forearm strike of his own!

Jake Mercer: Now here we go as both of them engage in a back and forth! Andrea! Viz! Andrea! Viz! Andrea! Viz! Andrea! Viz! Andrea! Andrea begins to overwhelm Viz with forearm shots towards the face now! Viz tries to fend them off, blocking all the shots he can with his forearms, but Andrea manages to get the better of him as she then turns around and runs to the ropes and back… XANDER! XANDER WITH ‘OVERDOSE’! DISCUS PALM STRIKE TO THE NOSE OF ANDREA OUT OF NOWHERE DROPS HER DOWN TO THE CANVAS! Andrea is down while Xander goes for the pin-

Stew-O: BUT THE VISUAL PROPHET TAKES ADVANTAGE AND CONNECTS WITH A STRIKE OF HIS OWN! ‘IKE TURNER SPECIAL’ CONNECTS ON XANDER! THE SPINNING BACKFIST GIVES VIZ THE ADVANTAGE AS HE DROPS DOWN AND PINS XANDER’S SHOULDERS DOWN TO THE CANVAS! WILL THIS BE IT RIGHT HERE?!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTTHHHHHHRRRRRRRREEEE-

Flannery McCoy: BUT XANDER KICKS OUT! VIZ DOESN’T PONDER ON THAT THOUGH, IMMEDIATELY TURNING AROUND AND PINNING ANDREA WHO WAS TAKEN DOWN BY XANDER’S ‘OVERDOSE’! SECOND TIMES A CHARM!

OOONNNEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWWOOOOO!!!!!

TTTTTTTHHHHHRRRRRRR-

Jake Mercer: THIS TIME IT’S ANDREA THAT KICKS OUT! All three of these Elitists are still in this match, simply refusing to quit! The Visual Prophet clearly isn’t happy about that though, hoping that one of those would do the trick but both Andrea and Xander just simply refused. Viz is back up, stomping on the both of them before deciding to pick up Andrea and send her towards the corner! Andrea is still trying to gain her bearings and in the process I don’t think she sees Viz beginning to approach her, RUNNING FORWARD AND CONNECTING WITH A SPLASH TO CRUSH HER IN THE CORNER! Andrea is stunned while Viz sends her towards the opposite corner this time, RUNNING FORWARD AND LOOKING TO CONNECT WITH ONE MORE SPLASH TO THE UNIVERSAL WOMEN’S CHAMPION-

Stew-O: BUT ANDREA KNOWS BETTER! Managing to move out of the way just in time with the only thing Viz managing to connect with is the turnbuckles! Viz tries to turn around- BUT BEFORE THAT CAN HAPPEN ANDREA MANAGES TO LATCH ONTO HIM AND LOCK IN A SLEEPER HOLD! Viz is taken by surprise as he needs to find a way on the spot to get out of this one! Viz is trying to loosen Andrea’s grip but clearly that’s not going so well right now! Viz is dropping down to a knee, as his movement begins to slow-

Flannery McCoy: ONLY FOR XANDER TO COME IN AND CONNECT WITH A KNEE STRIKE TO THE HEAD OF ANDREA TO FORCE HER TO RELEASE THE HOLD AND SEND HER DOWN TO THE MAT! Xander now grabs a hold of Andrea before throwing her out of the ring! From there he grabs a hold of the head of Viz before throwing him towards the ropes and back, what could he be going for right now…

Jake Mercer: XANDER IS GOING FOR ‘LAST SEDATION”! THE POP-UP POWERBOMB TO TAKE VIZ DOWN TO THE MAT AND POSSIBLY FINISH THIS MATCH OFF FOR GOOD!

Stew-O: BUT VIZ PRACTICALLY LEAPFROGS OVER THE HEAD OF XANDER! VIZ NOW FROM BEHIND GRABS XANDER AND INSTANTLY GOES FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX TO TAKE HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS- But Xander connects with a back elbow towards the face to loosen his grip giving him the perfect opportunity to slip out of that one! Viz tries to recover- ONLY FOR XANDER TO STEP FORWARD AND CONNECT WITH A SUPERKICK! Xander then grabs Viz and pulls him in, I think we know what he has in mind right now…

Flannery McCoy: ‘PAYNEKILLER’! ‘PAYNEKILLER’ CONNECTS! XANDER DRIVES VIZ’S HEAD DOWN TO THE CANVAS WITH A PACKAGE PILEDRIVER! XANDER NOT WASTING ANY TIME ROLLING THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKING THE LEG! GOING FOR THE PIN! COULD WE BE SEEING THE BEGINNING OF THE END RIGHT HERE FOLKS?!

OOONNNEEEE!!!

TTTTWWWWOOOO!!!!

TTTTTHHHHHRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Jake Mercer: WAIT! WAIT! ANDREA VALENTINE OUT OF NOWHERE SLIDING INTO THE RING AND LAUNCHING HERSELF FORWARD TO BREAK UP THE PIN! Andrea tumbles down to the mat while Xander looks absolutely irate, it’s clear that he did not expect that to happen and if Andrea were not to get involved this would’ve ended up being a big win under his belt! But here we are now and Xander looks like he’s ten seconds away from strangling her. Xander wastes no time beginning to make his way towards her before relentlessly stomping down on the body of the Universal Women’s Champion! Andrea is still down on the mat and Xander is looking to make sure that it stays that way, but it might not be for long though as surely but surely Andrea begins to regain her bearings and slowly begins to get herself up in spite of his attack! Xander is now resorting to raining down punches on the spine of Andrea! Andrea is beginning to fight back though, sending quick lefts and rights toward the face of Xander hoping to slow him down while she has the chance. But Xander isn’t having it, connecting with a stiff uppercut towards the jaw it completely halts Andrea’s momentum that she was beginning to build up! XANDER GOING FOR A HEADBUTT TO ANDREA-

Stew-O: But Andrea manages to go under that before connecting with a quick knee towards his abdomen to take him off guard! Xander is stunned while Andrea runs to the ropes… SETTING HIM UP FOR A HANDSPRING BACK ELBOW SMASH- BUT XANDER LEAPS INTO THE AIR AND GRABS A HOLD OF ANDREA BEFORE PLANTING HER DOWN WITH AN ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL BACKSTABBER AS A COUNTER! ANDREA IS TAKEN DOWN TO THE MAT AND NOW IT’S XANDER THAT LIES IN WAIT!

Flannery McCoy: Andrea stumbles up, and I don’t think she realizes that she’s right where Xander wants her as she turns around to face him. Xander throws Andrea to the ropes… HE’S GOING FOR ‘LAST SEDATION’! POP-UP POWERBOMB TO TAKE HER DOWN TO THE MAT!

Jake Mercer: WAIT! ANDREA JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME MANAGES TO PRESS HER BOOT AGAINST THE FACE OF XANDER WHILE GRABBING ONE OF HIS ARMS AND TAKING HIM DOWN WITH ‘XOXO’! THE INVERTED STOMP FACE BREAKER CONNECTS AND I DON’T THINK SHE’S DONE! AS SHE BRINGS XANDER UP BEFORE RUNNING TO THE ROPES AND BACK…

Stew-O: CONNECTING WITH ‘LOVE HAZE’! THE RUNNING CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER CONNECTS TAKING XANDER DOWN TO THE MAT! ANDREA KNOWS THIS IS HER CHANCE TO WIN, QUICKLY SCRAMBLING FORWARD AND LOOKING TO PIN XANDER’S SHOULDERS TO THE MAT-

Flannery McCoy: ‘KISS TO THE HEAD’ ON ANDREA BEFORE SHE CAN DROP DOWN AND HOOK THE LEG! VIZ OUT OF NOWHERE WITH THE BULL HAMMER ELBOW STRIKE AS HE GRABS A HOLD OF HER AND TOSSES HER TO THE SIDE! VIZ NOW TURNING AROUND AND BEGINNING TO MAKE HIS WAY TOWARDS A CORNER, LOOKING TO MAKE AN ASCENSION UPWARD! VIZ IS ON THE TOP ROPE! XANDER IS DOWN ON THE CANVAS! I THINK WE KNOW WHAT HE’S GOING FOR RIGHT HERE! THIS IS HIS CHANCE!

Jake Mercer: ‘BOW TO THE HEART’! DIVING ELBOW DROP TO THE CHEST OF XANDER PAYNE- WAIT! WAIT!

(The camera goes over to show Albert Hitchman, the manager of Andre Walker, who is seen jumping up onto the apron and yelling at Viz trying to get his attention. Viz is clearly trying to block him out, but it’s clear that he’s putting his finishing elbow on pause for the time being.)

Stew-O: VIZ IGNORING ANDRE AND LOOKING TO GO FOR THE ELBOW REGARDLESS-

Flannery McCoy: BUT XANDER ROLLS OUT! THE DISTRACTION FROM ALBERT GAVE XANDER ENOUGH TIME TO GET THE FUCK OUT OF THERE AND RIGHT NOW THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION DOES NOT LOOK HAPPY WHATSOEVER.

(Albert, the eager smirk on his face beginning to fade, jumps off the apron upon seeing Viz jump off the top rope and land on the ringside area. It’s apparent that he is not happy whatsoever, as he approaches him in anger. Albert pleads with him, trying to leave the situation that he’s in unscathed, but Viz is not listening to any of that. Albert trips while he’s walking backward, falling down to the ground while Viz looks to grab him.)

Jake Mercer: ‘HUNGER ON HILLSIDE’! WHAT THE?! ANDRE WALKER IS HERE!

(The camera barely manages to catch Andre Walker jumping the barricade and leaping over Albert, cutting The Visual Prophet in half with his signature Spear. Andre then gets back up, sleeking back his slick black hair while taking his Interwire Championship which he dropped down on the ground, and handing it over to Albert. Obviously, the referee ponders the idea of calling off the match, but with this being a triple threat match he leaves some leniency for Andre.)

Stew-O: VIZ DIDN’T SHOW UP EARLIER IN THE NIGHT WHEN ANDRE CALLED HIM OUT BECAUSE HE WAS AT A FESTIVAL, AND NOW IT SEEMS ANDRE IS BRINGING THE CHALLENGE TO HIM! ANDRE MOUNTING ON TOP OF VIZ WHILE HE’S ON THE GROUND BEFORE BEGINNING TO RAIN DOWN MULTIPLE FISTS ON HIS HEAD! THE INTERWIRE CHAMPION ABSOLUTELY MERCILESS IN HIS ATTACK RIGHT NOW!

(Meanwhile, around the ring, Xander Payne is seen leaning against the barricade trying to recover. He doesn’t seem all that happy that the match has been invaded by one of his sworn enemies, but chooses not to get himself into unnecessary conflict. On the other hand, Andrea Valentine has herself propped up against the bottom turnbuckle, clutching at her head in pain, possibly unknowing of what’s going on right now. Meanwhile, the referee is seen finally having enough, making his way over and trying to stop Andre’s assault on the World Heavyweight Champion so this match can continue. But before he can do anything, Andre shoves the referee away! The referee takes a hard tumble and clearly has had enough, signaling toward the timekeeper.)

(DING! DING! DING! DING! DING!)

Flannery McCoy: AND THIS MATCH IS CALLED OFF! Even if it wasn’t there was no telling when this malicious brawl between Andre and Viz was going to be over, and the referee just quite simply was at his wit’s end. Viz finally manages to shove Andre off of him as he scrambles up to his feet, ONLY TO BE MET WITH A UPPERCUT TO THE FACE! Viz is sent backward while Andre goes under, GRABBING HIM AROUND THE WAIST AND RAMMING HIM UP AGAINST THE BARRICADE! Andre isn’t done though, now grabbing the arm of Viz… BEFORE SENDING HIM INTO AN IRISH WHIP AND COLLIDING HIS FACE AGAINST THE RING POST!

Jake Mercer: Viz is busted open now, and I’m sure that is a gruesome sight to see right now for most. Andre is clearly taking advantage of the fact that the World Heavyweight Champion is coming off of a match, so right now he has all the time in the world to continue to pick him apart. Andre grabs Viz and rolls him back into the ring, and despite everything that he’s going through right now, he still manages to pull himself up to his feet-

Stew-O: ONLY TO BE MET WITH ‘KAISER’S TOUCH’ TO THE HEAD TO TAKE HIM DOWN TO THE CANVAS! SUPERMAN PUNCH CONNECTS! Andre just laid Viz out, and I don’t think he’s satisfied with just that. Andre turns around and begins to make his way towards a corner, stalking his prey while he has the chance. This is not going to end well for The Visual Prophet whatsoever I can tell you right now…

Flannery McCoy: AS ANDRE CONNECTS WITH A SECOND ‘HUNGER ON HILLSIDE’! SPEAR TAKES VIZ DOWN ONE MORE TIME! ANDRE MAKES A STATEMENT HEADING INTO PAIN FOR PRIDE HERE TONIGHT!

(The camera goes over to Albert Hitchman snatching the World Heavyweight Championship from the timekeeper’s area while he holds the Interwire Championship in his opposite arm. From there, he rolls into the ring, handing Andre both Championships. Andre, with a serious expression on his face, puts a foot on the chest of The Visual Prophet before raising both the Interwire and World Heavyweight Championships into the air while Albert proudly stands next to him. It’s a shot to behold and most importantly, it’s the last as Friday Night Dynasty from there begins to fade to a complete black.)
