Dynasty 8/31/2018

(EAW Intro Plays…)

(A video begins to play highlighting last weeks Supershow; Dynasty: Revolution. The video starts off showing highlights of the opening Fatal Four Way match between Ryan Wilson, Lucas Johnson, Shaker Jones and Kevin Hunter. It shows all four men with different moments where it looked like they may have had the match won before Kevin Hunter pinned Shaker Jones to gain an opportunity at the Answers World Championship. The video then cuts to Theron Nikolas vs Andrei Sokolova’s incredible match. The video highlights their hard hitting exchanges and Theron Nikolas eventually coming out on top, and what happened after the match. The video then cuts to the brutal Hardcore Championship between Champion, Johnny Ventura and Challenger, Mark Michaels; the video highlights the lengths that both men went through to walk out as Hardcore Champion before Ventura managed to successfully keep his championship. We next go to Cameron vs Impact with Impact getting himself intentionally disqualified and laying Cameron out before cutting to the main event of the night. The match shows shots of both Jack Ripley and Darkane going at it for the Answers World Championship; Jack Ripley forcing himself back into the ring after the onslaught from Darkane outside the ring, Jack Ripley hitting the Believe It or Not off the apron, countering the spear with the You’ll Float Too Superkick, hitting a second superkick only for Darkane to fall out of the ring, Darkane moving out of the way of a Tope Suicida and Jack Ripley crashing into the barricade, and finally Darkane hitting the Devil May Cry to retain the Answers World Championship to retain the Answers World Championship. It shows one final shot of Darkane standing on the stage before fading to black.)

(Dynasty Intro Plays; featuring “Revolution” by The Score.)

(The camera to the arena as red pyro blasts from the stage and titantron finishing with one last blast before the camera pans over the thousands packed into the Denny Sanford Premier Center before stopping at the announcers table where Talib and Stew sit intently.)

Stew: WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN TO THE HOTTEST THING ON TELEVISION IN THE WORLD; THE MOST MUST SEE PROGRAM IN EAW HISTORY!! FRIDAY NIGHT DYNASTY!!! We’re hot off the heels of an incredible Supershow event last weekend in Revolution; champions retained, a new challenger for the Answers World Championship was crowned, scores left unsettled – we now set our eyes towards Territorial Invasion!

Talib: I’ve been waiting for tonight all week, Stew! There’s been so much to look forward to since last week. Kevin Hunter is the next man to stand against Darkane for the Answers World Championship, what will be Starr’s reaction to The King of Elite’s assault on Andrei Sokolova, how will Cameron respond to Impact’s actions at Revolution! I have no doubts that we’re going to find out tonight!

(The camera cuts to the stage as “2nd Sucks” by A Day To Remember as Starr Stan makes his way out through the curtain to a CHORUS of cheers.)

Stephie Love: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome at this time… THE DYNASTY GENERAL MANAGER!!… STARR!! STAAAAANNNN!!!

Stew: It looks like the Dynasty General Manager is kicking off tonight. There’s a feeling backstage that’s been gone for a while now, and word is that Starr Stan, even with a few things that happened, is EXTREMELY happy with how last weeks show went.

Talib: Revolution was phenomenal, Stew. Every match delivered in their own way. Starr has managed to ignite a fire in every name backstage; there’s a feeling that there’s an opportunity for everyone. I don’t know if Starr is content with where we are currently at, but he has to be pleased with how things are going.

(Starr enters the ring and Stephie Love hands him a microphone; Starr holds up the middle rope so she can exit the ring before making his way to the middle of the ring as “2nd Sucks” fades out.)

Starr: I believe that it’s safe to say that last weeks Supershow was a HUGE success! This roster gave me exactly what I had hoped; they went out and prove why I am proud to have every single one of them on my roster, and I have no doubts that Dynasty is going to be the absolute benchmark of what every brand should be. The work that every brand should be putting out for every single one of you that loves this business just as much as we do. I want to thank everyone backstage for what they’re doing, and every single one of you who turn up every week and go through this journey with all of us.

(The crowd roar with cheers as Starr slightly drops his head and grits his teeth.)

Starr: But… there is something that I do have to address. Unfortunately, not all of last week’s show is something I would like to remember. We all had the opportunity to watch both The King of Elite, Theron Nikolas and Andrei Sokolova go to war and have one of the best matches of the year – but, the actions of Theron Nikolas after the contest are not something that I’m going to tolerate. I have the bad news to announce that Theron’s assault on Andrei has caused some damage in his leg which the former REVOLT! Heavyweight Champion is going to have to force him onto the sidelines indefinitely. I feel partly responsible for Theron’s actions; he said that the blood for what he was going to do at Revolution would rest on my hands, and it partly does. I’ve had countless meetings and phone calls to determine the best course of actions; some people want him out of the company, some have suggested suspending him for as long as Andrei is forced away – but, I have no doubts that it’s going to do nothing but add more fuel to the fire and cause more problems in the future, which I believe that we can avoid. Theron has openly stated for months about what he wants, and I believe that the best course of action may be to give him what he wants, and if hopefully I do that – we can all finally turn a corner and Theron can go back to standing out as one of the best talents that this company has ever had the chance to have. So, with that being said, I would like to formally invite Theron Nikolas out here to make a deal.

(The crowd boos as Starr turns towards the stage before “Legendary” by Tupac blasts through the speakers. Theron Nikolas slowly makes his way through the curtain holding his King of Elite crown as the boos inside the arena grow even louder.)

Stew: I can’t believe that Starr may be willing to try to work something out with the King of Elite, but those who have told the man to make that hard decision is right – Theron should be suspended for his action. He should be forced to sit on the sidelines and be gone for the entire time that Andrei Sokolova takes to recover. His actions were despicable.

Talib: But, Starr makes a good point. Why add fuel to the fire when you can find a solution? We all know what Theron wants, and he’s proven that he’s willing to run through anyone in this business; whether they be active competitors, or even the man who created this entire company if it means he’s going to come closer to it.

(Theron stands on the apron looking at Starr, who holds a second microphone in his hand. Theron slowly enters the ring as Starr tosses him the second microphone as “Legendary” fades out.)

Theron: Are you saying that you’re actually the first person in your position that has enough common sense to understand that everything that I’ve done could have been avoided if I was afforded what I rightfully deserve.

Starr: Unfortunately, it seems like you’re right.

Theron: I know I’m right, Starr – if I wasn’t people wouldn’t have lost their careers, and others wouldn’t be forced to sit at home with the question of whether they’re going to be able to compete in this ring again wouldn’t be looming over their head. But, I guess… it’s better late than never.

Starr: I definitely wouldn’t push it. As unpopular of a decision as it’s going to be to allow to get off with that assault on Andrei is going to be – like I said, it’s one that I wholeheartedly need to make if it means that we can finally put everything behind us and move forward. I’m sure we both watched as Jack Ripley came so close to becoming the Answers World Champion last week, but we both know that it’s the championship you have your eyes locked on, Theron. But, I can see where you’re coming from when you say that you have no intention in cashing in that crown while there seems to be something waiting in the shadows to make sure that the opportunity leads to nothing but failure. I’m willing to give you the opportunity that you want. I can guarantee that when you cash that crown in – there’s going to be nothing standing in your way from taking the Answers World Championship, and if you manage to lose… there’s going to be no one else to blame but yourself.

Theron: I’m not going to fail.

Starr: We’ve heard that for months now and you’ll be able to tell everyone about how wrong they were if your time does come, but if you can that opportunity, Theron – you’re going to have to do something for me.

(Theron laughs and Starr continues to look at the King of Elite.)

Starr: It’s a simple request and if you accept there’s going to be nothing left standing in your way.

Theron: And what do you want in return?

Starr: We both know that a challenge was put out for Territorial Invasion. Three people will represent their respective brand for the opportunity to make their brand reign supreme. Voltage named their team; they threw their champions into the mix. The World Heavyweight Champion, Rex McAllister and the Co-National Elite Champions, Charlie Marr and Daryl Kinkade. Showdown has Diamond Cage volunteering to captain their team. I want you to represent Dynasty at Territorial Invasion. I want you to be the captain that leads Dynasty into War Games. I look at what they have to offer, and you know what Theron? It doesn’t matter who they throw into the fold – none of them compares to what you are. There isn’t one of them whose careers hold the same ceiling as yours. You’re the man that kicked down the doors of this company, put the entire company on notice, set the world on fire, conquered mountains that were never meant to come close to climbing. You’re the man that has continuously proved his worth to this company from day one, and this is your opportunity to walk out in front the world against the best that Voltage, Showdown and Empire have to offer and prove that none of them comes close to you, or Dynasty. You do this for me and I’ll personally make sure that no one will possibly be able to take the opportunity that crown gives you, away from you.

(The hint of a smile crosses the face of Theron as Starr extends his hand.)

Starr: Shake my hand and you get what you want.

(Theron looks down at Starr’s hand before looking back up at the Dynasty General Manager. Theron nods his head as he shakes Starr’s hand as the crowd erupts.)

Theron: I accept.

Starr: Thank –

Theron: I accept with one request. I get to pick the team.

Starr: I had the idea of allowing people the chance to earn their position.

Theron: Well, there’s no hiding who my first choice is going to be, and seeing what he showed the world last week – Jack Ripley deserves to be one of the men that stands by my side. It think it’s safe to say that he’s already earned his position. We could also have the Answers World Champion by our side – wait, that couldn’t possibly happen. We don’t have any room for placeholders. We could have the Hardcore Champion, but that’s off the table too, because if Mark Michaels of all people managed to take him that far… how are Jack and I able to trust that he’s going to hold his own as well as we’re going to? There’s no one on the roster that I can think of… No… I got it. I have the perfect person to fit the final spot. The one person we know we’re going to be able to trust.

(Theron lowers his microphone as “I Am A God” by Kanye West blasts through the speakers. The crowd EXPLODES with both cheers and boos as Mr. DEDEDE slowly makes his way out through the curtain as Starr immediately grits his teeth. DDD stands on the stage with a smile on his face, soaking in every piece of what the crowd throws his way.)

Talib: IT’S MR. DEDEDE! WE HAVEN’T SEEN HIM SINCE CAMERON ELLA AVA SMASHED HIM IN THE HEAD WITH THAT EQUALIZER OVER A MONTH AGO!

Stew: …

(DDD makes his way apron as “I Am A God” fades out.)

Starr: You can’t be serious.

Theron: I’m extremely serious, Starr. If we’re going to walk into War Games – we need the best team possible. Who’s better than to represent Dynasty than the greatest of all time?

Starr: I don’t care how good he is.

Theron: Okay, but think about what he brings to the table. You would be stupid to not have him by our side. The most ruthless, unforgiving, unrelenting motherfucker that this business has ever seen inside War Games with the intention of making sure that this brand stands tall. You want to succeed at Territorial Invasion, but you want to pull your punches?

Starr: Fine. You want DDD by your side, let’s do it. Just make sure that Dynasty stands strong and I don’t care about what any of you do inside that structure, This is about dominance; you two and Jack – I have no doubts that Dynasty is going to reign supreme. It’s been a pleasure doing business with you, Theron.

(“2nd Sucks” blasts back through the speakers as Starr leaves the ring as both Theron and DDD watch on. Theron turns towards DDD and they speak to each other as the hint of a smile crosses the face of DDD before the camera cuts to commercial.).

(Commercial.)

(Dynasty’s first match of the night begins with the stunning Stephie Love standing in the ring. She is joined by Shaker Jones, Ashton Thomas, and newcomer Andy Lush.)

Stephie Love: “The following triple threat contest is set for one fall….

Crowd: “One fall!!!!!!”

Stephie Love: “Introducing first!!!! Making his Elite Answers Wrestling debut tonight, from Las Vegas, Nevada…. THE LUSCIOUS ANDY LUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

(The crowd jeers as Lush steps forward and poses for them.)

Stephie Love: “And joining him in this match!!!! Now residing in Las Vegas, Nevada…. BEAUTIFUL ASHTON THOMAS!!!!!!”

(More jeering from the crowd, but that reaction quickly dies down as Stephie Love goes to introduce the final competitor for the match.)

Stephie Love: “And finally…. FROM INGLIS, MANITOBA, CANADA…. THE PUNK ROCK COUNTRY BOY…. SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKER JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONESSSS!!!!!”

(The crowd explodes as Shaker Jones steps forward and raises his arms in the arm! Unfortunately, his reaction is short-lived because The Artist Formerly Known As Nemesis attacks Shaker from behind!!!)

Stew: “Ooof. Before Shaker’s introduction is even finished, Ashton Thomas begins the onslaught! He clubs Shaker in the back and sends him over the top rope! Shaker is definitely wanting to rebound from a disappointing loss at Revolution and this is not how he wanted to get things going tonight.”

Talib: “While Ashton is screaming at Shaker to get up and get back in the ring, the newcomer Andy Lush is waiting to attack! He sneaks up behind Ashton and throws him into the corner. Ashton Thomas finds himself on the receiving end of several well placed kicks. Thomas is able to fend them off and send Lush into the corner! He swings! Lush ducks, and Thomas finds himself right back in the corner! He begins lighting him up with chops! Wisely, Thomas rolls out of the way and tries to make his way to the next corner! Lush follows and bounces Thomas’ head off the turnbuckle. Lush is now on the second rope and punching Thomas in the head! Thomas forces Lush off of him, but still Lush comes back for more! This time, Thomas sees him coming and moves, and Lush crashes chest first into the turnbuckles!”

Stew: “Lush turns around and attempts to come at Thomas again, but Thomas is waiting and plants him to the mat with a stiff elbow right to the jaw! Lush tries to drag himself back to his feet, but Thomas is waiting and sends him into the opposite corner. He then begins driving his shoulder into Andy Lush’s midsection! Thomas takes a few steps back and allows Lush to stumble towards him…. DDT! THOMAS DROPS DOWN FOR THE QUICK COVER!!!”

ONE!
TWO!!
KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICKOUT!!!

Talib: “Thomas pulls Lush back up, but Lush begins to fend him off with elbows to the gut, and a forearm to the face! Lush backs up against the ropes and comes flying at Thomas! Thomas catches him and plants him with a powerslam!”

Stew: “Thomas grabs Lush and is looking for a powerbomb…”

Talib: “CHOP BLOCK TO THE BACK OF THE KNEE! SHAKER JONES IS BACK IN THE RING!”

Stew: “Shaker starts going HAM on Thomas, while Lush wisely rolls out of the ring! Thomas finds himself on the receiving end of these beautiful stomps, and the this crowd is solidly behind the Punk Rock Country Boy! Shaker Jones was so close to becoming the number one contender for the Answers World Championship and these people want to see the former Big Bhaker Bhampion get himself back on the winning side of things!”

Talib: “Despite this onslaught, Thomas is back up to his feet. Shaker grabs him and attempts to toss him across the ring, but Thomas stops that momentum and instead Shaker goes back first against the turnbuckles! Thomas charges! Shaker gets his feet up! Thomas stumbles back! Shaker comes flying with a clothesline! Thomas nails him with a kick to the breadbasket! Shaker doubles over! Thomas clubs him in the back a few times! He whips Shaker across the ring! Shaker ducks another clothesline! Thomas tries again! This time Shaker slides between Thomas’ legs! Shaker gets back to his feet! Thomas turns around! Thomas eats a dropkick right to the face! Shaker quickly goes for the cover!!!”

ONE!
TWO!!
KICKOUT!!!!

Stew: “Shaker pulls Thomas up to his feet and hoists him over his shoulder! He drops Thomas across the top rope, and Thomas is hurt! He clutches his throat and Shaker comes running at him! BIG BOOT! Thomas finds himself tangled up against the ropes and Shaker sends him to the outside! Thomas and Lush are both on the outside now….”

Talib: “SHAKER JONES LAUNCHES HIMSELF OVER THE TOP ROPE!!!”

Stew: “Shaker takes out both Ashton Thomas and Andy Lush! And this crowd goes nuts! Shaker lets out a roar and throws his arms in the arm, and man! What a legend!”

Talib: “But Shaker has his back turned and doesn’t see that Andy Lush is now back to his feet! Lush was only grazed by that high-risk move from Shaker and he slams his body into the back of Shaker Jones! Shaker eats a face full of steel-ring steps and these fans are not happy! The newcomer is being booed now and Lush seems to enjoy it! In fact, he’s taking the time to flex and pose for the fans!”

Stew: “I love how that woman in the front row looks completely disgusted by Andy Lush’s eight-pack abs. #DadBodsBetter.”

Talib: “While Lush is annoying the Dynasty faithful, Ashton Thomas has gotten back up to his feet. He’s watching as Shaker Jones attempts to shake off the effects of the ring-steps. Shaker is pulling himself back up… STANDING DROP KICK FROM ASHTON THOMAS! Shaker slams into the steps again! This causes Lush to turn around…”

Stew: “FLYING FOREARM FROM THE STEPS BY ASHTON THOMAS!!!”

Talib: “The back of Andy Lush’s skull connects with the barricades and Thomas jerks him up by the arm! He slams Lush’s face into the ring apron and rolls him back inside! Thomas follows him in locks Andy Lush in the ‘Beautifier!’ There is nowhere for Andy Lush to go right now, and he is trying desperately to fight free of this Koji Clutch!”

Stew: “But look! Shaker Jones has pulled himself back onto the apron and is rolling into the ring. He breaks up the hold before Andy Lush can quit and he begins stomping away on Ashton Thomas! Ashton somehow fights his way back to his feet and both Thomas and Shaker are standing now! They begin exchanging rights and lefts, neither one wanting to give an inch to the other! Back and forth they go, until finally its Shaker who slams his knee into the jaw of Thomas! Thomas is stunned for the time being!!!

Talib: “SIDEWINDER!!!”

Stew: “Shaker doesn’t go for the cover though! Instead, he goes for the top!”

Talib: “ROMPER STOMPER!”

Stew: “The crowd roars as Shaker Jones goes for the cover on Ashton Thomas!!!!

ONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…………….

Talib: “Andy Lush with a diving axehandle to break it up! Shaker Jones was sooooooooooo close to getting a win right there!!!!!”

Stew: “Lush grabs Shaker by the back of the tights and sends him shoulder first into the ring post!!!!”
Talib: “Andy Lush is now scrambling up to the top and….”

Stew: “AND THIS IS WHAT HE CALLS THE BEST DAMN FROGSPLASH EVER!!!!!”
Talib: “He lands right on Thomas and immediately goes for the cover!!!!!”

OOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…..
TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTWWWWWWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO….
TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEE…..

Stew: “NO!!!! ASHTON THOMAS KICKED OUT AT THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND AND ANDY LUSH LOOKS A LITTLE SHOCKED!”

Talib: “I thought that was it too! Andy Lush grabs Thomas and locks him into a modified STF!”

Stew: “Apparently this is called the Face-Arranger and I don’t guess someone who refers to themselves as ‘Beautiful’ wants to be on the receiving end of this.”

Talib: “Thomas looks like he’s close to tapping!!! Lush is holding on for all he’s worth!”

Stew: “But look!!! Shaker Jones sees that Thomas is about to tap! Shaker is making his way back into the ring!!!”

Talib: “But Andy Lush sees him!!! He lets go of Ashton Thomas and charges for Shaker Jones! Shaker is knocked from the ring apron and down into the floor!!! Andy Lush scrambles back over to Ashton Thomas and locks in the Face-Arranger again!!!”

Stew: “Thomas taps! He taps!!!”

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stephie Love: “AND HERE’S YOUR WINNER BY SUBMISSION!!!!!!!!! THE LUSCIOUS ANDY LUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Talib: “Incredible debut for one of Dynasty’s newest signees!!!”

Stew: “Shaker got robbed tho.”

(“Now You’re A Man” by DVDA hits the PA system as Andy Lush celebrates his first victory in EAW by posing in the middle of the ring.)

(The camera cuts backstage as Lucas Johnson and Ryan Wilson are arguing.)

Lucas Johnson: IT’S YOUR FAULT I’M NOT CHALLENGING FOR THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!

Ryan Wilson: MY FAULT? I DIDN’T GET PINNED! I HAD THE MATCH WON IF IT WASN’T FOR YOU!

Lucas Johnson: ARE YOU SERIOUS? YOU COULDN’T TIE YOUR OWN SHOES, LET ALONE WIN THAT FATAL FOUR WAY! YOU’RE A JOKE!

Ryan Wilson: I’M THE JOKE? YOU’VE BEEN A JOKE FOR YEARS! NO ONE TAKES YOU SERIOUSLY!

Lucas Johnson: AT LEAST I’VE WON A CHAMPIONSHIP! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE SINCE JOINING THE COMPANY, OTHER THAN FAIL EVERY OPPORTUNITY THAT YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN!

Ryan Wilson: THAT’S IT! YOU AND ME! RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!

Starr: Woah, woah, woah.

(Starr walks into the camera’s frame as both Lucas and Ryan go forehead to forehead.)

Starr: I’m sorry that both of you came up short at Revolution, but you’re both the men that I was hoping to see. Seeing that neither of you were pinned last week, I don’t see any two names more fitting to compete for the opportunity to face Johnny Ventura for the Hardcore Championship at Territorial Invasion. So, if you two want to go at it, wait until next week. May the best man win.

(Starr walks away as the two turn back to each other.)

Ryan Wilson: Oh, I will win.

Lucas Johnson: You’re just lucky that Starr was here to save you from the beating of a lifetime. You’re not going to be as fortunate next week.

(Lucas makes his leave as the hint of a smile crosses the face of Wilson before the camera fades to commercial.)

(Commercial.)

(Chainsaw Gutsfuck by Mayhem plays as Xtreme Demon makes his way out to the stage and down to the ramp.)

Stephie Love: Introducing first, from Hell, weighing in at 280 pounds, “Malphas”.. XTREEEEEMEE DEEEEEMOONNN!!

Stew: This man seems to have a bright future in EAW. 2-0 since debuting, he has the biggest match of his young career thus far against one of the 1% scum, Jack Ripley.

Talib: Xtreme Demon has something to prove tonight, but let’s not forget that Jack Ripley might be out for blood after what happened this past weekend.

(“A Story To Tell by Woe, is me plays to a raucous sound, half boos, half cheers. Jack Ripley somberly makes his way down to the ring with a callous look on his face.)

Stephie Love: And his opponent, from Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing in at 202 pounds.. “The Straight Shooter”.. JACK RIIIIIIPPLLLEEYYYY!!

Stew: Like we were saying Jack had the biggest match of his career this past weekend against Darkane for the Answers World Championship. Unfortunately for him though, he came up short in that match. He must feel like he has something to prove
.
Talib: This is going to be one intense match between these two! I can’t wait to get started.

(Jack leans up against the turnbuckles as Xtreme Demon paces back and forth in his respective corner. The ref signals for the bell to start the match)
(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: AND XTREME DEMON NOT WASTING ANY TIME AS HE RUNS RIGHT AT JACK TRYING TO CATCH HIM OFF GUARD!

TALIB: YOU’LL FLOAT TOOOOO! SUPERKICK RIGHT TO THE FACE OF XTREME DEMON! JACK PUTS HIS FOOT ON THE CHEST OF XTREME DEMON FOR THE PIN.

Ref: One! Two! Three!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stephie Love: Here is the winner of this match.. JACK RIIIIPPLLEEYYY!!

Stew: WOW! What a statement made by Jack Ripley. What a bounce back from utter heartbreak. Jack RIpley standing tall tonight.

Talib: I thought this was going to be a great match… I was wrong. Great job by Jack Ripley; seems like he’s facing the failure alright.

Stew: I don’t know where either men go from here, but I’m excited to see! Jack seems determined to prove himself, and that last weeks match isn’t going to change his trajectory. We’ll be back!

(“Can I Live” by Jay-Z hits as Impact arrogantly makes his way through the curtain; he stares as Jack Ripley as he walks past him and makes his way down to the ring.)

Talib: It looks like Impact has no intention in allowing Jack Ripley relish in his dominant victory over Xtreme Demon.

Stew: Impact’s actions at Revolution was absolutely inexcusable! There’s no excuses for the heinous things he did to Cameron Ella Ava. The board isn’t happy, and you have to expect that sponsors of the company feels the exact same way.

Talib: I didn’t really see anything wrong with it.

(Impact makes his way into the ring as boos reign down from everyone in attendance which only seems to bring a smile to his face. He extends his hand and is quickly given a microphone before making his way back to the middle of the ring.)

Impact: I don’t understand why anyone is really surprised with anything that I did last week – I did everything that I said I was going to do. This company has done nothing but blow up people who never should have been considered close to the World Championship contention, but we like to make people believe that anything is possible. This company likes to make people like Cameron believe that there’s a shred of hope here for her on Dynasty, but I quickly proved that there’s nothing but the same torment and failure that she’s become far too accustomed to while being off the brand that she should have always been on. I didn’t have to pin or submit Cameron at Revolution – I had to put her down and teach her the place she stands. You might not have liked it; everyone in the back may have hated it, but the disqualification last week means nothing. I fucking won. I was the person that could leave the ring under his own willpower; no help needed to stand on my own two feet.

(Impact laughs as boos continue to rain down.)

Impact: So, where does that leave us now. It’s simple. Kevin Hunter will face Darkane in the next few weeks, but nobody gives a flying fuck about any of that. It’s about giving those who deserves a fucking opportunity to have it. I’m the GOAT. There is no name better than I am, and it’s about time that the man that made the Answers World Championship everything that makes it great takes it back. I’m the No. 1 Contender to the Answers World Championship, and I want whoever the fuck is champion at Territorial Invasion –

(“ULTRAnumb” by Blue Stahli hits as Cameron Ella Ava makes her way through the curtain to a THUNDEROUS pop from the crowd. She holds a steel chair in hand as Impact welcomes her down to the ring.)

Stew: CAMERON LOOKS TO BE IN NO MOOD FOR TALKING – AND SHE CHARGES DOWN TO THE RING WITH STEEL CHAIR IN HAND! CAMERON SLIDES UNDER THE RING AS IMPACT SHOOTS FORWARD!! IMPACT WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! CAMERON DUCKS – AND CRACKS IMPACT OVER THE HEAD WITH THAT STEEL CHAIR!! IMPACT GOES DOWN AND CAMERON DOES NOT RELENT!!! CAMERON FIRING AWAY WITH THOSE BRUTAL CHAIR SHOTS!!! CAMERON THROWS WHAT’S LEFT OF THAT CHAIR AWAY AND CALLS IMPACT BACK TO HIS FEET!!! HE CAN BARELY MOVE!!! CAMERON STALKS LIKE A RABID ANIMAL!!!! GODDESS TOUCH!!!!!! IMPACT HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT BY CAMERON ELLA AVA!!!!

(The crowd chant Cameron’s name as she picks up the microphone and crouches down next to the unconscious Impact.)

Cameron: You’re not next. I am. The Answers World Championship is MINE.

(Cameron drops the microphone as “ULTRAnumb” picks back up and Cameron makes her leave. She doesn’t look back at Impact once, or pay attention to anyone in the crowd as she makes her exit. The camera fades to commercial as Impact is receiving help in the ring.)

(Commercial.)

(Camera pans to the ring where KMK stands.)

Stew: Ladies and gentleman next we have Theron Nikolas taking on KMK! Theron really looked impressive this past weekend against Andrei Sokolova. I’m sure he wants to carry on that momentum here tonight against Kyle Monroe Kade!

Stephie Love: Introducing first, from Colchester, Essex, weighing in at 169 pounds… KYYYLLEEE MONRROOOEEEE KAAAADDDEEE

Talib: I’m sure he does! KMK is no slouch though! Let’s see how this unfolds

(Legendary by Tupac blares through the arena as Theron Nikolas takes the stage. He raises his arms up in the air, and walks down the ramp.)

Stephie Love: And his opponent from, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, weighing in at 210 pounds, “Kayser Soze”… .THERRRROONNNN NIKKOOOOLAAAASSS!!!

Stew: Theron did a great job at Revolution up against Andrei Sokolova. Theron has never looked any better! I might hate how he goes about things with the 1% but you have to admit how good he’s been

Talib: No, I agree with how the 1% does things, because they are a group of GOATS! Whatever they do, it’s amazing.

Stew: Well let’s see if Theron can keep it up.

(Theron and Kyle stand across the ring from each other, staring one another down. The ref calls for the bell)

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stew: And we’re off, Theron walks to the middle of the ring, and Kyle follows him. They’re staring face to face, looks like this thing is about to break down soon! Kyle grabs for the headlock! But Theron manages to duck under it, and moves into a hammerlock. Kyle is trying to maneuver out of it. But Theron seems to have it pretty well on lock. Theron turns Kyle around, and grabs a hold of him, and delivers a big german suplex!

Talib: That German Suplex just had Kyle land on his head. But he’s getting right up! SUPERKICK! Superkick by Theron onto Kyle, and Kyle falls to the mat like a sack of bricks! Theron picking Kyle right back up, and lays him on the ropes… SUPERKICK! Another one sending Kyle out of the ring, and down to the floor. Theron not letting this man breathe. Theron grabs a hold of Kyles hair, and tosses him back into the ring. This match has been all Theron from the get go, and it doesn’t seem as though that’s going to end any time soon. Well, might be over sooner than we expected, as Theron seems to be setting it up… VINDICATION! Theron lays KMK out, and it seems just academic at this point.. Theron goes for the cover.

Ref: One! Two! Three!

(Ding! Ding! Ding!)

Stephie Love: Here is your winner, THERON.. NIKOOLLASSSS!!

Stew: Theron not slowing down, not even a little! He’s continuing all that momentum from Revolution, and who knows how long he’s going to ride this wave.

Talib: Theron had this match in his clutches from the jump, and he never relinquished it. The 1% is reigning supreme.. Who can stop a motivated 1%? I’ll wait.

Stew: We’ll be back folks..

(Final Commercial.)

(“Born Too Late” by Saint Vitus hits as the lights in the arena are dimmed. Darkane steps onto the stage slowly and takes in the atmosphere around him before making his way to the ring)

Stephie Love: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Approaching the ring first, from New Orleans, Louisiana… weighing in at 246 pounds… HE IS THE EAW ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION… DARRRRKKKKAANNNNNEEEEEE!!

Stew: Fresh off his title defense at Revolution just a week ago, Darkane looks to keep up his momentum as he takes on Erebus Jennings… a man who is in many ways, his equal!

(The lights in the arena remain dimmed as “Indestructible” by Disturbed hits and Erebus Jennings makes his way to the ring)

Stephie Love: And his opponent… weighing in at 240 pounds… EREEEBBBUUSSSSS JEEENNNNNIIINNNNGGGGSSS!!

Bari: Be careful with your words there Stew, if Erebus Jennings was an equal to Darkane… he’d be the Answers World Champion right now.

Stew: You know…

(DING! DING! DING!)

Stew: The bell sounds and both men saunter out of their corners, into the middle of the ring where they lock up! Standard collar and elbow… Jennings and Darkane, so similar stylistically… and it’s Jennings actually getting the better of the Answers World Champion here, charging forward and pushing him back into the corner… BUT DARKANE SLIPPING OUT, FORCING JENNINGS UP INTO THE CORNER AND UNLOADING WITH A CHOP TO THE CHEST!! THE SOUND REVERBERATING THROUGHOUT THE ARENA… BUT JENNINGS ISN’T TO BE OUTDONE AS HE TILT’S HIS HAND BACK AND LIGHTS UP DARKANE’S CHEST WITH ONE OF HIS OWN!!

Bari: AND THAT CHOP ISN’T SITTING TOO WELL WITH THE CHAMPION, HE COMES BACK… RAMMING HIS KNEE INTO THE MID-SECTION OF JENNINGS… STUFFING HIS HAND RIGHT IN HIS FACE, JENNINGS’ SPINE PRESSING UP AGAINST THAT TURNBUCKLE, FOLKS I PROMISE YOU THAT PADDING ISN’T DOING MUCH TO HELP!! LOOK AT HOW HE HAS JENNINGS BENT HERE, THAT’S NOT RIGHT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!! JENNINGS IS IN A BAD WAY HERE!! THE REFEREE STEPS IN-BETWEEN THE TWO, COMING TO THE AID OF JENNINGS, TRYING TO SEPARATE THEM… BUT NOT BEFORE DARKANE CAN GET ONE GOOD SHOT IN, A RIGHT DIRECTLY TO THE JAW!!

Stew: JENNINGS EXPLODES OUT OF THE CORNER, CHARGING AT THE CHAMPION AND TAKING HIM DOWN WITH A CLOTHESLINE!! I DON’T THINK DARKANE WAS EXPECTING THAT, HE GETS BACK TO HIS FEET… A LOOK OF SURPRISE ON HIS FACE, BUT HE GETS TAKEN RIGHT OFF OF THEM AGAIN WITH A SECOND CLOTHESLINE, DARKANE AGAIN TO HIS FEET… THIS TIME A LITTLE SLOWER, AND NOW JENNINGS LIFTS HIM UP… INVERTED ATOMIC DROP!! DARKANE STUMBLES AROUND THE RING BEFORE DROPPING TO HIS KNEES!!… AND NOW JENNINGS SEES A BIG OPENING HERE.. HE RUNS OFF THE ROPES… CHARGING FORWARD WITH A SPINNING FOREARM… BUT NO!!

Bari: DARKANE HOPS UP TO HIS FEET, GRABS THE ARM AND DROPS JENNINGS WITH A NECKBREAKER!! JENNINGS ROLLS ONTO HIS STOMACH, LOOKING TO GET BACK TO HIS FEET… BUT DARKANE WITH A KICK, A STRAIGHT KICK TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!! Darkane now grabbing a fistful of Jennings’ hair… getting him to his feet… he locks his grip around Jennings’ wrist and whips him into the ropes… DARKANE DROPS HIS HEAD… BUT OH MAN!! THIS TIME IT’S JENNINGS WITH A KICK OF HIS OWN… A STRAIGHT BOOT TO THE TOP OF DARKANE’S HEAD!! AND THE KICK SENDS THE ANSWERS WORLD CHAMPION TUMBLING BACKWARDS, OUT OF THE RING!!

Stew: DARKANE PLOPS ONTO THE FLOOR AND JENNINGS ISN’T FAR BEHIND HIM, STEPPING THROUGH THE ROPES, ONTO THE OUTSIDE… HE GRABS DARKANE AND GETS HIM TO HIS FEET!!… NOW RAMMING HIM INTO THE BARRICADE!!… NOW A SECOND TIME!! A THIRD!! NOW WHIPPING HIM INTO THE RING APRON WHERE DARKANE HITS SPINE FIRST!! JENNINGS DOING SOME SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE LOWER SPINE OF DARKANE HERE!! HE LIFTS HIM UP ONTO THE EDGE OF THE RING AND ROLLS HIM IN… JENNINGS FOLLOWS… DARKANE GRABS A FISTFUL OF ROPE AND PULLS HIMSELF TO HIS FEET… HE TURNS AROUND TO MEET JENNINGS… WHO PLANTS HIM WITH A SIT OUT SPINEBUSTER!! HE FOLLOWS IT UP WITH A PIN, HOOKING THE LEG!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!! KICK OUT!!

Bari: Darkane able to get the shoulder up… but that was close! Closer than I’m sure he wanted! Jennings gets to his feet and you can sense the confidence building within him! Jennings grabs Darkane… pulls him to his feet… OH AND LOOK OUT HERE!! EREBUS JENNINGS GOING FOR PITCH BLACK!! IF HE HITS THIS, IF HE– BUT NO!! DARKANE FIGHTS, SENDS RIGHT HANDS INTO THE MID-SECTION OF JENNINGS, JENNINGS RELEASES HIM AND DARKANE REGAINS HIMSELF, ON HIS FEET!! HERE COMES JENNINGS BUT DARKANE… DARKANE WITH AN UPPERCUT STOPS HIM DEAD IN HIS TRACKS!!

Stew: Jennings staggers around the ring but is able to remain on his feet… BUT FROM BEHIND DARKANE GRABS HIM… GRAVE DIGGER!! IT CONNECTS!! DARKANE ROLLS HIM OVER ONTO HIS BACK AND HOOKS THE INSIDE LEG!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… NO!! JENNINGS GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!

Bari: Darkane to his feet, he sets himself up in the corner… PERHAPS LOOKING FOR THE DEVIL MAY CRY!! JENNINGS IS SLOWLY MAKING IT BACK TO HIS FEET, COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF WHAT AWAITS HIM WHEN HE DOES!! DARKANE LOWERS HIMSELF INTO A SQUATTING POSITION, READY FOR JENNINGS WHO’S ALMOST THERE!! HE’S UP!! ON WOBBLY FEET AS HE TURNS AROUND AND DARKANE RUSHES TOWARDS HIM!!… DEVIL MAY CRY!! NO!! SIDESTEPPED!! IT’S SIDESTEPPED AND DARKANE GOES FLYING INTO THE CORNER, HITTING IT HARD!! JENNINGS FOLLOWS THAT UP WITH A STINGER SPLASH!! DARKANE TAKES A FEW STEPS OUT OF THE CORNER BEFORE COLLAPSING TO THE CANVAS, JENNINGS WILL TRY IT AGAIN, THE COVER!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… BUT AGAIN THE CHAMPION IS ABLE TO KICK OUT!!

Stew: AND NOW LOOK HERE!! OH LOOK OUT!! EREBUS JENNINGS ISN’T WASTING ANY TIME FOLLOWING UP!! HE GETS TO HIS FEET, PULLS DARKANE INTO THE CENTER OF THE RING AND GRABS HIS LEGS… LOOKING FOR DARKNESS WRATH!! LOOKING TO MAKE DARKANE TAP OUT HERE!! CAN HE ROLL DARKANE ONTO HIS STOMACH?! THE CHAMPION IS FIGHTING!! NOT ALLOWING IT BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT IT MEANS IF JENNINGS IS ABLE TO DO IT!!… A STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE TWO… DARKANE IS ABLE TO PUSH JENNINGS OFF OF HIM!! DARKANE USING ALL OF HIS LOWER BODY STRENGTH TO PUSH JENNINGS AWAY!! JENNINGS REGAINS HIMSELF AND COMES CHARGING… BUT RIGHT INTO DEVIL MAY CRY!! DARKANE HITS IT!! THE COVER!!

ONEEE!!… TWOOO!!… THREEE!!

(DING! DING! DING!)

(“Born Too Late” begins to play as Darkane gets to his feet and celebrates his victory)

Stephie Love: Your winner… DARRRRKKKKANNNEEEEE!!

Stew: And Darkane does it! Darkane picks up the win in what turned out to be a very hard fought match against Erebus Jennings!

Bari: Well we mentioned it at the top, these two are alike in so many ways and it showed tonight… neither of these men ever had much control over the match, it was as back and forth as you can get!

(Darkane snatches a microphone from Stephie Love and rolls back into the ring.)

Darkane: Challengers come and go, but the fact remain the same; I am STILL the Answers World Champion! I was watching while I was getting ready for Jack Ripley and I saw the next man who falls to Darkane Times. I don’t want to wait, and I’m sure that Kevin Hunter isn’t going to want to wait either. Starr! You have the power; give Kevin his opportunity next week. There’s no point in making a man have to wait for his fate that has already been etched in stone.

(Darkane drops his microphone and makes his leave with the Answers World Championship.)

Stew: Darkane throws out the challenge! He wants Kevin Hunter next week! Ladies and Gentlemen this is all the time we have for you tonight! This is Stew signing off for Dynasty alongside Talib! Thanks for tuning in!

(Darkane celebrates on the ramp as the camera fades to black.)
