(EAW Intro Plays…)
The show enters to both Stew and Talib. They introduce the show and welcome everyone to another great show to come. The camera cuts back to the ring as both teams from the opening six man tag match make their entrance. The match showcases everyone involved. All six men putting everything on the line; several moments where it looks like either team could walk out with the win. A miscommunication between Lucas Johnson and Ventura leads to ZERO catching Ventura with a roll up and the victory for his team. The three celebrate on the ramp as an irate Hardcore Champion stares from the ramp.
The camera next cuts to a video of Cameron Ella Ava throughout the week. The video highlights Cameron’s past ventures against World Champions, and coming so close to realising that dream everyone holds. The video shows her training harder than she ever had. A motivation in her eyes that has never been seen before. Cameron speaks about everything that has happened with Imp and that there’s going to be no greater victory than if she’s able to walk out of Territorial Invasion as the Answers World Champion.
The camera returns from commercial to Stew-O sitting with Theron Nikolas. Stew welcomes Theron, who returns with the idea that he didn’t really have a choice in the matter. Stew doesn’t begin with causal questions, instead getting immediately into Theron’s last year. He asked about his shots at the EAW World Championship, winning KOE, fighting against company officials and his match with Banks at Pain for Pride. Theron goes into depth about what drove him against EAW. Theron talks about being the most valuable asset that this company has, and not being appreciated for it. Theron talks about how there has never been a talent in recent memory that has managed to make his way to the top of this company as quickly as he did, and how the company wasn’t willing to capitalise on it. Instead opting to back people that weren’t deserving of the role. Theron talks about how the EAW World Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship has been devalued; how it’s gone from being contested by some of the greatest of all time to being carried for months by a man that was nothing more than cannon fodder for years. Theron talks about War Games and about how the 1% aren’t fighting for Dynasty or Brand Supremacy – but, for their own supremacy. They’re going to prove that there’s nobody close to what they are, and when they topple the best that Voltage, Showdown and Empire have to send their way – there’s going to be no more hiding who rules this company. Theron finishes with when they’re finished with Territorial Invasion that he’s got his sights on the Answers World Championship.
The camera returns from commercial with Ryan Wilson sitting backstage after his victory earlier in the night. He’s focused; he’s been fighting for this opportunity at Territorial Invasion for his entire run in EAW so far. He speaks about losing at Revolution and having to watch Kevin Hunter compete for the Answers World Championship and how it cut him pretty deep. Ryan promises more to allow another opportunity slip between his fingers
The camera then cuts to Andy Lush preparing for his upcoming match against Mr. DEDEDE. ZERO makes his way into the camera’s frame, but Lush tries to blow him off. ZERO congratulations him about his victory last week and going onto challenge for the New Breed Championship. Lush scoffs at ZERO as ZERO pats him on the back and tells him he’s going to be the first person in line if he’s successful at Territorial Invasion.
The camera returns to The 1% standing backstage. They speak about the upcoming War Games match at TI. Theron speaks about what the future holds for the three of them, saying that War Games is only the beginning of a long rule over not only Dynasty, but EAW as a whole.
( “Now You’re a Man” – DVDA comes on the sound system, and Andy Lush saunters out with a confident look about him. )
( DING! DING! DING! )
Stephie Love: The following singles contest is scheduled for ONE FALL! Introducing first, from Las Vegas, Nevada weighing 232 POUNDS… ANDYYYYY LUUUUUUSH!!!!
Talib: Tall, tall order for this young cat who goes into Soldier Field a week from tomorrow to represent Dynasty in the fatal 4 way match for the EAW New Breed Championship!
Stew: There’s no question Andy Lush has had a great start to his career here on Friday Night Dynasty, he’s been victorious in singles and fatal 4 way competition. He is a standout competitor when it comes to the New Breed division, and he could very well be the next Elitist to hold the New Breed championship come next Saturday in Chicago. But tonight this young man without question is the underdog in this upcoming match. I personally talked to Andy Lush today and he assured me that this would be proving grounds for being worthy to be considered as EAW’s hottest rising talent, and it just may be the mindset he needs to come out of this victorious.
( “I Am A God” by Kanye West hits, and smoke billows up from the stage until Mr. DEDEDE walks out dressed in his ring gear with his game face on. )
Stephie Love: His opponent… residing at the Ryan Adams estate in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, weighing in tonight at 235 POUNDS… MMMISTEEEEEEEEER DEEEEEEEE DEEEEEEE DEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Talib: And out comes “The Franchise”, and the Chairman of the Board of EAW himself! Take that status away however and you still get a 6 time World Champion and the EAW Elitist of the Decade. He is a HUGE reason why I am so confident in Dynasty’s chances at coming out victorious at TI next week!
Stew: I can’t say I agree with the decisions this man has made in the past and the mentality he seems to have nowadays, but there’s no questioning his place in the history books that is for certain. However Bari DDD hasn’t been in action since the beginning of July when he basically phoned it in against Drillmatic with Cameron Ella Ava as his partner, so tonight’s match matters not just for DDD but for Dynasty as a brand as well, because how he fares could reflect a substantial amount on how Dynasty will fare in the War Games in Chicago.
( DING! DING! DING! )
Talib: That’s really actually a good point Stew that I hadn’t thought of. DDD looks pretty healthy and in just as good shape as he was before his leave of absence, but part of me still wants to see what the underdog Andy Lush is made of considering we haven’t seen him take a loss since arriving here on the red brand a month ago. The two Dynasts are circling the ring right now evaluating each other as opponents. Lush is the first to go at DDD with a waist lock, prompting DDD to grab a hold of the hair and causing the official to respond to that real negative. DDD locks in a nice snug headlock… Lush pushes DDD out of it, DDD responds with an Irish whip, and DDD ducks over for the back body drop but Lush catches himself on the ropes and stops himself from rebounding… now Andy’s showing off his abs and his beautiful figure, pause!
Andy Lush: DON’T YOU WISH YOU STILL HAD ABS LIKE THESE? NOW YOU’RE JUST A SCRAWNY OLD MAN!
Stew: Andy Lush taking the time now to show off to the ladies in the front row, but DDD from behind catches him with a roll up!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWO-
Stew: Lush kicks out of that and the two recover, but it’s Andy who catches DDD with a spin kick to the midsection! Now a forearm to the temple of a doubled over DDD! He follows up with a shoot kick to the side! DDD catches the leg, FIRES BACK WITH A SPINNING BACK FIST! But Lush ducks under that and delivers a GERMAN SUPLEX FROM BEHIND! DDD hits the ground hard and comes right back up, wild lariat misses the mark, and a HALF-NELSON SUPLEX FROM ANDY LUSH BRINGS DDD BACK DOWN! DEDEDE quickly recovers again, body racked with pain, and LUSH WITH A FRANKENSTEINER THIS TIME!!! BUT DDD COUNTERS BY CENTERING HIS GRAVITY AND STACKING LUSH ONTO HIS SHOULDERS WITH A PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWWWWWWWWOOOO–
Talib: Kick out by Lush! Some nice power moves from the self-proclaimed “Reflection of Perfection”, after delivering some picture perfect suplexes, and he beats DDD back to his feet and looks to be attempting a BELLY TO BELLY OVERHEAD RELEASE THROW! But DDD fights back with some cross arm blows to the face, and that allows DDD to retreat to the turnbuckle for some rest. Not a lot of rest however, because Andy Lush rushes right back at him with a running knee strike! NO! Doesn’t connect, DEDEDE cuts him off with a lifting boot to the face! That catches Andy Lush off guard and DDD lifts himself up to the top turnbuckle at a seated position, and is now trying to set himself… could he perhaps be looking for a spear from the top rope???
Stew: Not so fast! Andy Lush sprints up to the top rope looking for a SUPERPLEX!!!!!
Talib: DDD NOT LETTING HIMSELF TAKE A BLOW LIKE THAT SO EASILY, HE’S FIGHTING BACK WITH PUNCHES TO THOSE ABS CHISELED FROM GRANITE! Now DDD delivers a headbutt! That stuns him, and Andy Lush ends up taking the fall off the top turnbuckle right onto his back! DDD decides to descend to the apron from the top rope, and waits for Andy Lush to recover only to bait Andy to finally charging at at him! DDD slides under the bottom rope and between the legs, only to bring Lush onto his shoulders with a roll up pin! But Lush rolls out of the roll up and GRAB A HOLD OF THE LEGS, TO TURN HIM OVER AND APPLY THE TEXAS CLOVERLEAF!!!!! ANDY LUSH LOCKING IN “PUSH IT TO THE LIMIT” ON THE 6 TIME WORLD CHAMPION, AND THE GAWD LOOKS LIKE HE WAS CAUGHT COMPLETELY OFF GUARD BY THAT!
Stew: BUT LUCKILY FOR DDD HE IS CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE ROPES TO TAKE A DESPERATE DRAG WITH ALL HE HAS IN HIS BODY AND BRING HIMSELF WITHIN ARMS REACH OF THE BOTTOM ROPE! DDD CLUTCHES ONTO THAT BOTTOM ROPE FOR DEAR LIFE, AND THE REFEREE IS FORCED TO INTERVENE!
Ref: He’s got the ropes Andy let him go! ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Talib: Andy Lush drops the submission and holds his hands up, forcing DDD to drag himself out of the ring and drop to the floor holding the small of his back. Let’s give the kid props where props are due, that was a well executed hold that he delivered at the right time. It doesn’t look like the guy is frozen in fear at the aura a guy like Mr. DEDEDE can give off, and that’s half the battle right there when you’re someone this young and talented. The ref is giving Andy Lush a talking to about match etiquette, and the two engage in a back and forth while DDD fights back up to his feet. Now Lush follows DDD out of the ring just as he finds DDD leaned over the barricade —
Stew: — and DDD CHARGES INTO LUSH DRIVING HIM SPINE FIRST INTO THE RING APRON! NOW HE FIRES AWAY WITH PUNCHES TO THE UNSUSPECTING LUSH, JUST AS THE REFEREE BEGINS HIS COUNT!
Ref: ONE! TWO!
Talib: DDD takes Lush over to the ring steps and BASHES that pretty face of his into the unforgiving steel! Lush collapses to his bottom and is seated back against the steel… DDD backs away… and OH GOSH, DDD DRIVES RIGHT INTO LUSH WITH THE KNEE INTO THE HEAD, BACK OF THE HEAD MAKING A NASTY SOUND AS IT COLLIDES AGAINST THE STAIRS! DDD attempting to ruin the movie star good lucks of Lush! Pause!
Ref: FIVE! SIX!
Stew: You sure you don’t have a crush on Lush, Talib? Because this is the second suspect remark you’ve had to make about his looks.
Talib: I don’t swing that way partner but that’s cute buddy you tried it. AAANYWAYS, DDD brings Andy Lush back into the ring and follows him back in as well. He stalks Lush the same way Stew thinks I’m stalking him and waits for him to get back up, just to bring him back down with a scoop sla– no Lush lands behind DDD and delivers YET ANOTHER GERMAN SUPLEX!!! THIS TIME HOLDING IN THE PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: DDD kicks out! Lush is somehow able to beat DDD to the punch and manages to reel him in for a SPIKE PILEDRIVER!!! BUT DDD COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP!!! LUSH SENT HIGH INTO THE AIR, BUT HE SOMEHOW LANDS ON HIS FEET BEHIND DDD! AN UNSUSPECTING DDD DUSTS HIS HANDS OFF TO SHOW OFF TO THE CROWD, AND HE’S HOOKED FROM BEHIND BY LUSH LOOKING FOR ANOTHER GERMAN! BUT DDD THIS TIME COUNTERS, SPINNING BEHIND LUSH AND DELIVERING AN O’CONNOR ROLL INTO A CROSS ARMBREAKER!!!
Talib: NOT SO FAST, ANDY LUSH HAS ENOUGH LEVERAGE TO STACK DDD ONTO HIS SHOULDERS, FORCING THE OFFICIAL TO SLIDE TO THE MAT AND COUNT THE PIN!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-
Stew: SO CLOSE, BUT DDD KICKS OUT! Impressive resourcefulness from the New Breed competitor, a guy who’s already shown he has many valuable tools to succeed here in the Land of Elite, and now he’s going right at DDD THIS TIME LOOKING FOR THE NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! THIS TIME TAKING DDD OFF HIS FEET! But DDD jams his fingers in one of the eye sockets of Andy Lush, bringing him back into that doubled over position, but this time with DDD in the driver’s seat as he hooks both arms and delivers the BUTTERFLY EFFECT!!! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK SUPLEX INTO THE BACKBREAKER RIGHT OVER THE KNEE!!! THERE’S THE COVER!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Talib: Andy Lush tosses a shoulder up! DDD snarling, waiting, watching Lush fight his way back to his feet as quickly as he can… and DDD turns him around to deliver a scoop slam dead and center in the ring, he sprints to the ropes, and rebounds off the ropes to deliver a jumping corkscrew elbow drop! Right into the chest, eliciting a loud grunt of pain from Lush as DDD hooks the leg this time!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Stew: Lush is still in this, much to Mr. DEDEDE’s chagrin! I’m sure DDD didn’t expect this much fight out of the young talent, but Andy has been no slouch since he’s arrived here on Friday Night Dynasty, DDD is learning that right now! DDD bickers with the ref a little bit as Andy Lush attempts to crawl away, and DDD goes right back after him grabbing him by the ponytail and sending him face first into the turnbuckle padding and then cutting him down with some closed fist shots to the temple, prompting the referee to intervene. DDD backs away for a bit, and goes right back after Andy Lush with some measured stomps into the midsection! He’s stomping a mudhole on this young man, and the referee is DEMANDING that DDD get Lush out of the corner!
Ref: ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR!
Talib: DDD backs away again. DDD might be the boss but in that ring during that match the referee is the authority, no question about it. DDD pulls Lush up from the floor and straightens him up, only to whip him HARD INTO THE CORNER AS HE POSSIBLY CAN! JUST THE IMPACT ALONE SENT A LOUD THUD THAT COULD BE HEARD IN THE CHEAP SEATS! BUT LOOK AT THIS, ANDY LUSH IS INVITING DDD TO CHARGE AT HIM! DDD, WIDE-EYED, RUSHES AT HIM WITH A LARIAT STRAIGHT INTO THE CHEST! …. BUT ANDY LUSH ABSORBS THE SHOT, AND IS STILL STANDING! What a surprise from this young stud! Lush is standing face to face with DDD, badly hurt and all, but still standing! DDD fires off with a right hand, Lush blocks it, and fires off with several shots to the jaw! DDD WITH A REVERSE ROUNDHOUSE! BUT LUSH DUCKS UNDER IT, AND POPS HIM UP ONTO HIS SHOULDERS TO DELIVER THE DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!!!! WHAT A COMEBACK SEQUENCE FOR THE UNDERDOG!!! NOW HE JUST NEEDS TO GET THE COVER!
Stew: Impressive indeed Bari but Andy Lush is taking too much time to roll over him, he’s still in a lot of physical pain and it’s taking him a while.. now he’s finally got a lateral press on DDD!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Talib: DDD shoots the shoulder up! Andy Lush crawls over to the ropes while DDD rolls around still very much sore and in pain. With assistance from the ropes Lush now jogs over to the turnbuckle to climb up to the top and maybe wants to deliver the FROGSPLASH! Or as Andy calls it, THE BEST DAMN FROGSPLASH EVER! Who can debate that with the athleticism this kid has?
Stew: DDD seemed to be aware of what was coming, and he races to his feet and charges over to Andy Lush to deliver a blow below the ribs! That was about two inches north of being considered a “low blow”, and DDD is hanging on by the hair of Lush as he climbs up to the middle ropes himself. Now Lush is fighting back with a few blows of his own to the side of the head! He tops it off with an overhand right that seems to stun The Gawd! Lush fixes his positioning on the top turnbuckle now, potentially looking for something…. OH MY GOSH HE’S LOOKING FOR THE JACKKNIFE POWERBOMB!!!!!! JACKKNIFE POWERBOMB FROM THE TOP ROPE!!!!! THIS WHOLE CROWD RUSHES TO THEIR FEET, WE MIGHT SEE DDD END UP BROKEN IN HALF BEFORE HE EVEN MAKES IT TO WAR GAMES! BUT NO! DDD FREES HIMSELF, AND DELIVERS A DOUBLE FOREARM CROSS TO THE HEAD! It is now Andy who’s rattled, as DDD now assumes leverage up there in the high rent district….
Talib: OH MY GOODNESS!!!! DDD LEAPS OFF, AND DELIVERS THE SUPER BUTTERFLY EFFECT!!!!! AVALANCHE BUTTERFLY SUPLEX SENDS THE TWO OF THEM FLYING AND CRASHING NEARLY HALFWAY ACROSS THE RING, AND DDD KEEPS GOING, HE ROLLS THROUGH IT, AND DELIVERS ANOTHER BUTTERFLY EFFECT!!! THIS INDIANAPOLIS CROWD WOWED BY THAT DISPLAY, BUT DDD KEEPS GOING, HE ROLLS THROUGH THAT, MUSCLING UP ANDY LUSH ONCE AGAIN WITH A DOUBLE UNDERHOOK INTO THE — OH WHAT WAS THAT?!?! THAT LOOKED LIKE A BUTTERFLY SUPLEX DROPPED INTO A BRAINBUSTER!!! THAT WAS NASTY!!!
Stew: I’M AWARE OF THIS MOVE TALIB, IT’S REFERRED TO AS THE “MK DRIVER”, AND MR. DEDEDE HAS UNVEILED THIS DEVASTATING DRIVER FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER TO DRILL ANDY LUSH SKULL FIRST INTO THE CANVAS! DDD WITH THE HOOK OF BOTH LEGS AFTER THAT MERCILESS DISPLAY!
Ref: OOOOOOOOOOOOOONE!!! TWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
( DING! DING! DING! )
( “I Am A God” by Kanye West hits, and Mr. DEDEDE sits up twirling his index finger with an annoyed look on his face, before getting up and giving his arm to the official to raise it. )
Stephie Love: Here is your winner… MISTERRRRRRRR DEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEEDEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Stew: The Bankers Life Fieldhouse is on their feet after that one! You can tell by DDD’s demeanor that he didn’t like how long this match went on, even if it is his first match back from a two month break. DDD resorting to the lifting double underhook brainbuster to get the job done here tonight.
Talib: The MK Driver huh? That’s new, I don’t think we’ve seen DDD deliver that move before! Regardless you still have to give it to Andy Lush, that is a very game young competitor who brought everything he could to the legend; but when you’re in the ring with the greatest of all time you start to learn a lot about your own limits.
Stew: Well I’d like to think Andy Lush possibly pushed DDD pretty close to the limit as well on numerous occasions in this match. I think the important thing to gather from this is that Dynasty just might be in really good hands after all.
The camera comes back from its final commercial with Darkane making his way out to the ring. Darkane speaks about how he’s looking forward to the challenge at TI; talking about how he’s willing to take on all challengers as they’re going to suffer the same fate as both Jack Ripley and Kevin Hunter have. Darkane speaks about never losing the Answers World Championship and how his one reign is going to eclipse all of Impact’s. Impact makes his way out and talks about how Darkane is never going to compare to what he is. That every dog has his day, but there’s never been someone who has been able to rule this business as he has. Darkane talks about how all empires end up being toppled in the end, but Impact only laughs it off saying that greater men have tried and that he’s the only person left standing in the company. Impact talks about how what he did to Cameron at Revolution is nothing close to what he’s willing to do to take back his championship. The two end the show with a stare down as Darkane raises the Answers World Championship before the camera cuts to black.
